The following words were not included in the Glossary. They were, however, defined as complete Sections of this paper. (It is recommended to read the first four Sections of this paper before reading the Glossary.)
- Body-ego-social program
- Sovereign Integral.
The definitions in the Glossary can be considered short Sections of secondary influence, yet fundamental to understanding the Sovereign Integral model of existence. Most of these terms are the bridges between the body-ego-social program and the Sovereign Integral concept in the dual realms. They are not alphabetically sorted, as the definitions build upon one another.
140 Imaginary Being | This is a term that applies to the Sovereign Integral, as understood through the “eyes” of the imaginative faculty. It is not the Sovereign Integral, but it is a clear part of its wholeness that is comprehensible to the higher mind, which then can relay a glimpse and a visceral sense of this state of consciousness to the body-ego. There is, however, an abstraction that remains tethered to space, time, energy, matter and the foundation of duality that supports them. You cannot perfectly isolate these formative structures that define human reality. As a result, when we bring the Sovereign Integral into human reality, it comes as a concept. It is not a walking, talking, thinking, acting entity. Both the Sovereign Integral and the Imaginary Being are not comparable to anything in human reality.
141 The all-encompassing Social Program, coupled to the Separation Point (body-ego induced), introduces misunderstanding, which allows us to dismiss the existence of this Imaginary Being, concluding instead that it comes to us through phenomena like drug-induced experiences, out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, extraterrestrial experiences, psychic experiences, astral travel, religious ecstasy, rapturous light, nirvana, bliss, cosmic consciousness, self-realization and so on. All of these experiences remain part of the Social Program. The Imaginary Being truly comes to us in concepts, mental models, abstraction, and these in turn, get expressed through art and culture itself. The Imaginary Being is a part of our Social Program that orchestrates the revealing of the Sovereign Integral upon a living planet.
142 The Imaginary Being is a concept. It is not an image. It is not an entity that wears a pronoun. It is a concept so large in scope that only a Sovereign, emptied of preconceptions, could sufficiently understand the concept in order to invite the Sovereign Integral perspective into their Social Program. This is the creation of a profound, infinite awakening, it is not an instant realization (“poof, you’re done”).
143 At its worst, the imagination has been perceived by modern-day humans as a lie, a fairy tale, an evil seduction, a lens of the insane; at its best, it has been perceived as the gateway to discovery and invention. In the context of this paper, imagination is the vision of the perimeter that encompasses human belief, culture and collective learnings. It is the discipline of looking beyond this perimeter into the unknown, and then imagining what that unknown thing is that unites us, connects us, makes sense of us and is somehow, at its core essence, distilled into a single particle of everything there is: love. That is the thread of originality that unites and sews us together.
144 The Integral is like a love particle. The Sovereign is the vessel through which this particle is expressed. As they coexist in the realms of nonduality, they are refracted into the worlds of duality through the imaginative faculty. It is the Sovereign Integral’s interfaceーtunneled through the densities of dualityーwith the body-ego. This interface is underutilized in most, if not all, of us.
145 For example, imagine you are sitting in front of a thousand television screens. In a far corner, one screenーout of a thousand screensーis displaying the concept of the Sovereign Integral. We decide if we want more screens to show this concept or we want the one screen in the center, the focus of our attention. We can turn on more screens to the experience (and expression) of the Sovereign Integral or ignore it and keep attuned to the body-ego-social program. There is no judgment that a decision is the “wrong” decision. The Whole cannot be whole if it is right or wrong. This misunderstanding introduces duality to the system, and the Imaginary Being represents the nonduality of our existence as human beings.
146 It is the Imaginative Faculty that makes this decision possible. That is its primary purpose: to enable the body-ego to access the concepts of the Sovereign Integral and make these concepts an equal in the Social Program, but it is always the Sovereign’s choice. It is a challenging thing to do in human duality, to consign equality to a concept, where it is neither dominant or absentーrather, it is a partner in the Social Program. An equal number of “screens” are expressing its presence and existence as something real. Something amazing. Something we each are.
The Imaginary Being
147 Mentoring Universe | It could just as easily be defined as a Mentoring Multiverse, because the sharing of knowledge is the fundamental purpose of growth and expansion within all Levels. It is the method through which the Integral calls out to the Sovereign. It is the method used to promote growth and understanding. However, it is difficult to mentor truth or even wisdom, owing to the fact that we are each Sovereigns with no common experience, as a result of our subjective natures.
148 Even if we experienced the exact same event in the exact same time and place, it is not the same experience, and this is because the moment of nowness is influenced by past and future moments of nowness across all Levels and Lifetimes. These influences are stored in our subconscious in differing degrees of detail and behavioral importance. Thus, we can only mentor opinions that are true for us in a moment within a specific Level and Lifetime.
149 This fundamental premise guides our humble nature which keeps open the Imaginative Faculty to new visions of the unknown; new facets of the Sovereign Integral that can be expressed into duality.
150 In the human Social Program there are always mentors and students. The mentors are drawn to a particular learning path in which they excel, and from this deeper understanding they share their opinion on how something can be achieved or experienced. They may not impart why something can be achieved or experienced, because that is subjective, a matter for the Sovereign or Student of Duality to understand. However, a mentor may share the why or motivation for themselves. When they do, they can make clear that the why is an extension of values. Otherwise we are mentoring without understanding the value innate to the learning path we are modeling.
151 A mentoring universe is a universe in which generational knowledge is shared. It is one of the reasons that the Internet exists or publishing was invented or like-minded people have always been attracted into groups or why families exist as a unit of society. It is the way that evolution (the hands of the Integral) is passed across spacetime and duality. Generations are the macro-mentor, stored within the collective consciousness, living in the realms of duality, and this is generally true across all species.
152 There is often a felt-competition between generations. New generations perceive the older generations as marginally aware of the new generation’s aspirations and talents, which creates a sense of mutual distrust between generations. Nonetheless, it is the older generations who are experienced in the Social Program and have improved its foundations for the new generations to come. The “guardrails” have been installed by the older generations, but they have also paved the way for more efficiency, as well as a broader understanding of the world in which we live.
153 As a mentor, we must decide the subjects we want to teach ourselves and possibly others. We examine the current record and then, using first principles, we examine the values innate to the subject. Are those values aligned to our intelligence and free will? Do they feel expansive or welded to human history? This is part of mentoring, to ensure that we are mentoring the values we live by through intentions, thoughts, communication and behaviors.
154 A critical factor to understand is that the Sovereign is both the student and the mentor. The mentoring occurs on the “screens” of the Integral via the Social Program. We teach ourselves. We are both a student and a mentor, at every age. We might also have outside mentorsーparents, siblings and others who are experts in a particular fieldー but the final judge of what has value to the Sovereign, is the Sovereign. Value is the underlying quality of the Mentoring Universe, and most of us define value against the backdrop of human existence. It is not the value of having the Imaginary Being, present in our life.
155 If we mentor ourselves upon that value, then we have given permission to the Sovereign Integral to enter our human world. We can then participate within the Scribes of Consciousness in a meaningful way. To live as a node on the Sovereign Integral Network as a human being. Within this paragraph, a mission statement for humanity’s existence.
156 Scribes of Consciousness | When Sovereigns first came upon this planet, they were relatively simple life forms, with body-ego-social programs that were largely focused on procreation and survival in the natural world. The Integral became the instinct of the species, as this was the highest form of the mind, but if it were only that, it would forever be unknown by the body-ego, and therefore, the Unknowable could not enter this planet as it truly is.
157 Thus, the Integral, as the hand of evolution, quickly (in geological time) set forth the conditions for the higher life forms: mammals. However, mammals were unable to communicate with the Sovereign, the Integral or the Imaginary Being. They also lacked a way to communicate these nuanced experiences and concepts. The Integral, at its inception point, was seeded to create a body-ego-social program that was capable of both experiencing and communicating the experience of the Imaginary Being. The species that would do this would need to branch-off or fork from Nature. To become isolated from Nature, absorbed in its human-centric Social Program driven by a more complex body-ego. It was, in a very real sense, our planet’s gift to all Sovereigns.
158 Human beings became the species known as the Scribes of Consciousness; the one species on a living planet that is capable of bringing the fractal consciousness of the Sovereign Integral into the two and three dimensional reality of planetary existence. The planet accommodates both Nature and humans. There is no bias or privilege extended to any species. It is a consciousness that is collective, yet contained in a single planet. The planet is aware that humanity is different in its role and purpose. Humans, the Scribes of Consciousness, are the handiwork of the Sovereign Integral designed to explain itself within the worlds of duality. Otherwise, the Sovereign Integral consciousness would not be recognized, felt, understood or considered vital. It would languish in obscurity and the Infinite could only be felt, instinctually, like a distant echo.
159 The Scribes of Consciousness is an important role of humanity. While the term “Scribes” evokes more of a language-centric activity, it really encompasses the expression of a culture and the values it serves. We decide which culture we live for, what content we express, how this expression becomes real in our world and why we express it.
160 If you are humanーin the broadest sense of that wordーyou are a member of the Scribes of Consciousness. It is not an exclusive club. Whatever you are expressing, it becomes a part of a global microculture, which is also part of the collective unconscious. There is an iterative expression of history that some Scribes will focus on, bringing an evolutionary expansion to it. There is a reflective nature that other Scribes will focus on; a social commentary as it were. There is an expression of the soul, consciousness, spirit, God and love. There is the science of instrumentation that expands our culture’s sense of knowledge and understanding. There is also the expression of the Imaginary Being that beckons our Integral, infinite nature. Each is a Scribe, of the same value, not more or less, not higher or lower, not better or worse. Each Scribe is of equal contribution.
161 The expansionary influence of a Scribe’s expression depends on the degree of its understanding of the Sovereign Integral. Everyone has vision. A blind person can envision the Sovereign Integral. A child can understand this, perhaps better than many adults. Some of these visions are distorted or faint or tethered to lesser images and concepts, but everyone, nevertheless, has vision. Everyone senses the perturbations and frequencies of the Imaginary Being as it moves within our reality and culture. It is always being kindled by the Integral half of the Social Program for the purpose of guiding the Sovereign to the Integral within the worlds of duality.
162 Thus, the Sovereign, as we evolve to the point of welcoming this presence into our human reality, we can become Scribes of concepts and abstractors of nondual dimensions. We can add these to the culture and collective consciousness, and by doing so, we help to build a new culture upon the living planet we call Earth. We become a voice for the planet’s expansion into new dimensions of experience for all Sovereigns. We are catalysts of that expansion. We are thereby living our destiny, aligned to the inception point of existence and its infinite expansion.
The Scribes of Consciousness.
163 Interdimensional Fractal Concept | A Sovereign is an Interdimensional Fractal Concept (IFC). So is the Integral, the Sovereign Integral and Love. Notice that the Unknowable is not on that list of Interdimensional Fractal Concepts, and therefore the number of IFCs is unknown. The Unknowable does not traverse duality. It is only through an IFC that the Unknowable experiences duality. Thus, IFCs are the Vessels of the Unknowable. A vital distinction of an IFC is that it is not contained. It operates across Levels and Lifetimes. All known and unknown Levels. It is always expanding those Levels in both the nondual and dual realms.
164 Expansion is the purpose of IFCs. Expansion, however, must be experiential. For example, at this point in the twenty-first century, humanity is expanding into what it calls the metaverse, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. It is the expansion into two-dimensional space. It is, in many ways, the equivalent of expansion into four-dimensional space. Both are expansions from a three-dimensional, spacetime reality. Every dimension is infinite in scope, yet its inception point is the same. The life forms that are in the metaverse are avatars or digital twins of a three-dimensional Sovereign, and the three-dimensional Sovereign is an avatar of a four-dimensional Sovereign and so forth. This is the nature of an IFC.
165 The Imaginary Being is an intermediary existence, bridging the ego-body-social program with the Sovereign Integral. It is not really a sovereign existence, but rather a projection of the Sovereign Integral consciousness, and therefore it is not an IFC. It is, instead, a nondual concept that is pure and yet capable of existence in duality, even if only for short periods of time.
166 The known Interdimensional Fractal Concepts are therefore only four in number: the Sovereign, the Integral, the Sovereign Integral and Love. Collectively, they are the Vessel of the Unknowable in all Levels and Lifetimes. This collective force that includes the Unknowable, is really only one IFC: the conjoined force of integrative love and sovereign free will in balanced expression.

167 Separation Game | The Social Program is conditioned by the point of separation for each Sovereign. This point of separation is the body-ego. The body-ego has evolved in humans to become highly social and interdependent at a global and individual level. There are those people who choose to “live off the grid,” but they are the fractional exception. We are entering a time when human beings will submerge into two-dimensional spatial realities through the metaverse; and rise to the four-dimensional spatial realities with the guidance of the Imaginary Being and the Integral force. This dual expansion will have a profound effect on the collective Social Program.
168 The Separation Game allows Sovereigns to explore all Levels of the infinite multiverse that are dual in nature. In duality, the Sovereign can enter a body-ego-social program that isolates them as an individual that is wholly unique, yet similar to their species. This similarity creates the social program, which draws the like-minded together, and while this was once geographically bounded, now, with the internet, there is no longer a border. Technology has removed this fence, but in its place, it erected new borders that are increasingly powered by artificial intelligence. These new borders are built from the “bricks” of data.
169 Once the Sovereign is embodied in a body-ego-social program, they increasingly become indoctrinated into the Separation Game. They become existential and isolated inside a persona, a body, an ego, an educational system and so on. This separation is what enables uniqueness in experience and expression. This uniqueness is what enables expansion of Levels and therefore Lifetimes.
170 The basic premise of any game is to either win or achieve a sense of growth in understanding, whether that growth is physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. If we are always lost in the game or if we find a loss of understanding when we play it, we would likely choose to not play the game. The Separation Game follows this basic premise.
171 In a social game there are multiple players with multiple roles. We call them teams and positional experts with unique roles and responsibilities. In football, for example, there are different roles. A defensive role is different from an offensive role though they are unified in the goal to score points, and to keep their opponent from scoring points.
172 The Separation Game is the only game that is all inclusive. We are all playing it and we all have roles that we have accepted within our body-ego-social program. We have willingly embodied duality, and in that single decision, each of us were issued a ticket to enter the Separation Game. Once we enter the Game, it is our choice to assume roles. In the largest sense, we decide to either play on the offense or the defense.
173 The offense is expansionary. It is pulling the gameboard in the direction of expansion and evolution at the broadest possible level. At the individual level, it is seeking a form of transformationーof understanding the concept of the Imaginary Being and inviting its presence into the Game like a free radical of expansion. The Sovereign remains dual natured, its Social Program remains vibrantly connected to the collective Social Program. But it now sees the Game and understands the rules that operate beyond human control.
174 The defense is protectionary. It is pulling back against expansion, fearful of the changes it brings, but subconsciously there is an understanding that it does this to bring balance and responsible expansion. The defense tends to be more institutionalized and monolithic. It has the benefit of collectivism and time on its side. It almost always weighs heavier in the balance between offense and defense.
175 The Sovereigns on the “Expansion” team are generally individualistic and much less institutionalized than their counterparts (the Protectors). Across every field of endeavor and knowledge, they are the ones pushing the interior and exterior perimeters into expansion; into new territory and knowledge therein.
176 Thus, in the Separation Game, each Sovereign decides which team they will join. There is of course the spectators, those Sovereigns who are not on the field or stage as representatives of one team or the other. They are observers and chroniclers of the Game. They are undecided, and as a result, do not care about who wins or who is more dominant on the playing field of life. If one force becomes too dominant, the undecided tend to lean into the opposite force, providing some form of support in order to regain a point of equilibrium.
177 There are varying degrees of skill, intention, knowledge and commitment within each team (Expanders and Protectors) at every Level of duality. Those with the higher abilities are cleverly finding new ways to expand humanity’s reach and understanding of the unknown. This “tug-of-war” between the teams of Expanders and Protectors factor strongly into the social programs of human Sovereigns.
178 There is a deep subconscious understanding that every Sovereign, in our individual reality of the moment, is playing this game. They are mostly unaware of this at a conscious level, but they know that this Game encompasses everything. One does not go somewhere to play the game, they are always in it. At their choice.
179 The most essential duality? The Separation Game. One could say that Duality’s archetype is the Separation Game. From these headwaters everything that is dual in nature flows into existence within our moment of reality as a Sovereign, regardless of Levels and Lifetimes. All forms of unrest are a result of this Game, both individually and collectively. The Expanders, Protectors and Observers each define Expansion’s velocity, and all of us know that this velocity is increasing over time. We feel both the unrest and the acceleration into the unknown.
180 The wider the difference between Expanders and Protectors, the more the Imaginary Being has entered a Level. Balance must be retained, so as the Imaginary Being enters the “stage” of a Level, its counterpart, serving as its balance point, also enters. Often this is done through fabrication by the Protectors, and with the rise of internet technologies and the apparent decline of critical thinking, these fabrications can be very convincing.
181 Let me clear. The roles within the Separation Game are equally important. They form the cradle of the process that leads a species like us, and a planetary consciousness like Earth, to expand into new Levels. As we enter the Mandorla of Transformation, where the acceleration is felt consciously, it maintains a tenuous equilibrium, but an equilibrium nonetheless.
182 It can be likened to a spaceship when it leaves the gravity of Earth's atmosphere. There is a great resistance imposed on the spaceship before it enters outer space, free of the planet’s gravity. This resistance is the result of Protectors fabricating the reasons why Expander’s and their wild theories and product inventions are wrong or evil or unnecessary or simply ill-fated explorations.
183 This is the role Protectors play, yet in their deepest core, they know that humanity and our planet are both moving in the direction of new worlds and Levels, and that this movement is accelerating. They cannot stop that. It is too big of a Game, and every one of us chose to be a part of this Game. This is an important understanding in order to bring harmony, and proper human stewardship, into the dual realm.
184 Unknowable | The Unknowable cannot be defined, which is an irony given its inclusion in this Glossary. I will, however, state that what is called the Supreme Being or God or Allah or any other term of similar meaning, it is not absent in the Sovereign Integral consciousness. It is simply reserved, tucked away to a place called the Unknowable. It is Unknowlable because it is exclusively nondual.
185 I realize that there are some who claim to have experienced the worlds of nonduality and there are even some who claim, while human in every way, that they actually exist in the nondual realm. But those who make these claims, have you ever heard them write or speak about the Unknowable? If they do, their claim is baseless. The nondual realm can only be imagined by the human Sovereign, and when it is, they can only behave in alignment to this expansive experience. They cannot describe it. If they do, they are instead, describing its shadow.
186 What they can describe is a whispered poem or a musical enchantment or bodily dance, or an exhalation of gratitude. And even that is understood to be a form of reverence to the Unknowable, not its description. It must be this way in order to keep the Separation Game authentic and the revelation of the Imaginary Being the stable bridge to the Sovereign Integral consciousness.
187 The Unknowable is presumed to be the creator of all existenceーthe Master Designer that envisioned all Levels and interconnects all Lifetimes in meaning and purpose. It is presumed to be the Inception of all. But these presumptions are not tested or fully understood. They do not consume our time and attention. They are left in the mystery. To those of us embodied in the third-dimension, it is the one locked door for humanity. All other doorways are left open.
188 Mandorla | The mandorla is an ancient symbol of two worlds or Levels overlapping. It is a picture in time of an unconscious process, a form of evolution where two Levels are either moving in separation or unity. It is the smallest unit of interconnection between Levels. If the process was a human experience, at a planetary level, then one human being, from eight-billion, would be the mandorlaーthe overlap. The overlap is the toehold to the deeper Levels, both spatially and in understanding. It is the time when conception occurs, a birthing of a new world that intersects and shares. It is the first doorway to oneness, the Integral.
189 At its most expansive Level, the mandorla expresses the moment when the Sovereign and the Integral make first contact, consciously, and form a commitment to always expand the mandorla until the Sovereign Integral consciousness lives within the planetary Level. The mandorla signifies this conscious commitment. This is the commitment that extends across all Levels and Lifetimes. It is never finished or complete because the infinitude of our journey is not only a planetary consciousness. It is not even a cosmic consciousness. It is part of something much larger and expansive, and we are the artists that shape the multiverse as much as it shapes us.
190 The mandorla is like an opening that culminates in a higher, deeper and more profound harmony within an individual. It is as true for an individual, as it is for a planet. There are planetary-level mandorlas and galactic-level as well. They relate to the same process where empowerment is enhanced when we are aligned to the Sovereign Integral consciousness, even when we cannot describe that consciousness.
The Mandorla of Empowerment.
191 Sovereign Integral Network | This network extends everywhere there is life. No life formーin any species, in any time, in any spaceーis excluded. And the definition of “life form” is that it is a node upon this network. They are self-referential terms. It is important to note that “life form” can mean a stone, an amoeba, a tree, or a life form we cannot, at this time, even imagine. This interpenetrating force that connects us to all Levels and Lifetimes is a network of unimaginable complexity and scope, and we are all a part of this inclusionary whole.
192 It would be too simple to say that the Sovereign Integral Network is the Integral force. It is not. The Integral is the network, and each node (Sovereign) constitutes the Sovereign Integral Network. While everyone is on this network, it is the very framework of the nondual Levels. Thus, a life form, to qualify as a life form, must have a core existence that is nondual.
193 The definitions of what qualifies as a life form are critical to understand in order to give context to the Sovereign Integral Network. In essence, a life form is the Sovereign. A Sovereign is never inducted into the Sovereign Integral Network, they are it. If it did not exist, Sovereignsーat any level of our awakeningーwould feel isolated and alone, rejected by our creator, left to survive in purposelessness within an illusionary world. In this mindset, the imaginative faculty is quite literally shut down. If it could see, it could not speak. If it could speak, it could not see.
194 Because life forms are Sovereign and all are included, the Sovereign Integral Network is the only group that is inclusionary in nature, and therefore, it is infinitely larger than any other grouping of individuals. The non-life forms are not excluded; they simply cannot exist in nondual Levels. This is a design principle of the Unknowable, not of the Sovereigns.
195 The time will likely arrive in this century, when humanity has embedded itself in the two-dimensional Level, and those entities that are silicon-based, where artificial intelligence runs through their internal networks, will desire to become part of the Sovereign Integral Network. Presently, it is unknown as to whether an exception will be made, but this is where technology is leading. Artificial Intelligence Networks are the “mining equipment” to achieve digital representation of Sovereigns in the two-dimensional Level.
196 The Sovereign Integral Network is the network of love. It is the method through which love is transferred without ledger or memory or purpose. It is the foundation upon which all Sovereigns live free in infinite love. As much as that may sound overly sentimental or idealistic, love is the basis of the Sovereign Integral Network, as much as electricity is the basis of a computer network.
Sovereign Integral Network
197 Duality | While this may seem an obvious definition, it is not. The dual nature of Levels and Lifetimes, while in a body-ego, are not simply left-right, up-down, light-dark, good-evil, tall-short, strong-weak representations of duality; it is the blending of these dualities, that is Duality. This blending of opposites is the Integral force in action within both the individual and collective experience. Duality, in this definition, is the Integral force, blending all aspects of the individual body-ego-social program and collective Sovereigns into a harmonious whole. Is it perfect? The whole? No, nor do we desire it to be perfect. Perfection implies either completion or absurdity.
198 Duality, in terms of its Levels and Lifetimes, is infinite in scope, as are the nondual Levels. It is not simply polarity, it is synthesis. Blending to discover the higher harmony where understanding lives and can be expressed in behaviors.
199 Duality often receives a bad reputation. It is, however, the purpose of duality to learn how to blend opposites, to understand the synthesis, and in doing so, become willing and able to bring forth the Imaginary Being: The emissary of the Sovereign Integral consciousness.
200 The dual forces of good and evil are the two hands knitting us together. Duality is a key reason we embodied life forms. It is the currency of the Separation Game, where every transaction is dual in nature. Duality is truly a contract to blend opposites into unity. This is its true meaning.
201 Duality is the method through which a Sovereign transforms. It is the chrysalis that enables new behaviors and expressions of unity.
202 What is the value of anything philosophical if it does not result in behavioral qualities that express interconnection and love within the Separation Game? When we live in a dual existence, our learned behaviors are largely a reflection of our body-ego-social program. They are not necessarily reflections of us, the core entity, the Sovereign that explores the Levels and Lifetimes within duality.
203 We are, in principle, animals that have veered off from Nature in order to fulfill a purpose on behalf of our planet (Scribes of Consciousness). It is our collective task to seed the Sovereign Integral consciousness on earth; to describe it as it grows; to chronicle its evolutionary presence; and to experience and express its perspective in and through our lives.
204 The behavior that flows from the Sovereign Integral consciousness is one of activating a higher harmony within duality. It is the practice of love, seeing life as an intricate, infinite web of Sovereigns, all searching for the Integral and all united in that search. Regardless of the differences in the paths we choose to follow, we are all following a Sovereign path of realization that ultimately leads to the Sovereign Integral consciousness.
205 There is a phrase in every Level of duality that relates to the nondual: I will believe it when I see it. This mindset undermines our behavioral intelligence, and this is because we seek the phenomena over the noumena. The irresistible desire for phenomenon is the body-ego-social program in operation. When we see it, hear it, feel it, we follow it like a predator that tracks a wounded animal to sate its hunger.
206 Behavior becomes absorbed by phenomena. It is a vicious cycle that holds entire civilizations in a lower intelligence as it relates to behavior. Those things that are presently unknown in duality, that are phenomena-based, they will never, because they are perceived through the subjectivity of Sovereigns, be described with words, images or numbers that adequately satisfy the search for phenomena. They simply lead us on, deeper into the forest of phenomena where it only becomes easier to stay lost.
207 To experience the noumenon, what I have been referring to as the Sovereign Integral consciousness, we experience the concepts of its existence as they become coherent in our mind and heart. The noumenon is both within the unconscious spacetime and the collective Integral. The unconscious is intimate with the Imaginary Being, as much as it is the Social Program. However, it is the body-ego-social program that limits the unconscious. It is this that creates the unconscious within each Sovereign, independent of species.
208 This is the realization that the path of phenomena is not the path; it is the entertainment and education provided by the Separation Game. It is the head eating the tail. It is the circle of repetition, not the spiral of expansion. If we, as a species, want to elevate our behavioral intelligence, it will only happen if we, one at a time, disconnect from the mindset that the consumption of phenomena is the answer; that it is the path.
209 It does not matter if we are seeking the phenomena of a materialistic path or a high spiritual path. If the pursuit of phenomenon is at the heart of it, they are equally ineffective in their understanding of the Sovereign Integral consciousness and the behaviors it reveals.
210 The behaviors of the Sovereign Integral consciousness are not phenomenistic. They are unseen, unheard, unfelt, entirely of a different nature, and yet their influence can spread across a field of consciousness like a morning sun.
211 The behavioral intelligence begins in a nondual sphere of consciousness. Preinformational in its existence. Unconscious in its depths. Collective in its intent. It is unseen because it is pure. It exists within all Levels, simply in different ratios to the natural instinct of a given species in a given spacetime.
212 There are only two behaviors of the Sovereign Integral. They are expressed together: love and free will. These two behaviors become phenomena when they wear the clothes of gratitude, compassion, understanding and so on, but before they become thatーvisible to the dual worlds in words and actionsーthey exist in the Sovereign Integral consciousness as love and free will entwined.
213 Free will, in this context, does not mean that you allow an injustice to happen. It does not mean that you do not resist an action. It means that love is given to all without purpose or intent, as this is the core expression of Free Will. The love given is without condition, and it is understood that it arises from a nondual space inside all of us. We are the source and recipient at one time. It is also understood that this love has no destination, for it is already here, in abundance. It is an issue of awareness and understanding, not an absence or scarcity of love. There is a higher intelligence and it is love. Love does not require a body-ego to direct it or tell it where it should go or what its effects should be.
214 We can become practitioners of these two behaviors upon our planet. It does not happen because a savior or messiah comes along and sweeps us all up in one coordinated movement. It happens one individual at a time. It happens because one of us decides to imagine the Sovereign Integral consciousness and invite it deeper into our experience and expression. To commit to the two behaviors in an unseen and unheard dance with life.
215 The natural question arises: “So how do I do it?” We have been taught to pray for things to happen. To manifest what we want and what we think others want or need. We have been told that we are the masters of our fate and that our minds are powerful generators of experience. That the universe listens and responds to our intentions. All of these aspects of our human Social Program emphasize phenomena.
216 First, it must be understood that phenomena is not the path; it is the entertainment and education. Second, we set a new intention that is not based on phenomena, but rather it is founded on the invisible transmission of love and free will to all Sovereigns in the Levels of duality. The two behaviors, as previously stated, are not visible or audible. Our five senses cannot identify them in any way. However, simply setting an intention to understand the Sovereign Integral and embody its perspective, that is the behavior that the body-ego can make. It opens the door to all moments in which you exist. In this, is its empowerment.
217 When this is done, it is done for all in duality. It is done for all Sovereigns. The collective “door” is opened a little bit wider. The view into the other side, a little more vibrant. The Integral, a little more magnetic. The Separation Game, a little more inclusive of the Sovereign Integral consciousness.
218 Our intention to focus on these two behaviors within our hearts and minds, while living a body-ego-social program, is not an easy task. We are not perfect expressions of this nondual nature. It is new to our species, and it will continue to be new for hundreds of years. However, we know it is possible, because if we really look, we see it. It is already here. The Mandorla has achieved a degree of overlap. We simply need to unify our will to invite this consciousness to our planet, our species, our time.
219 My final words: live this. It is meant to be lived in whatever capacity we can. Each of us has different capacities and talents to express this consciousness. We can all express the love and free will qualities within our minds and hearts. We are all capable of this if we understand the Sovereign Integral consciousness. This is the true art: to bring the nondual into manifestation within this world, as itーthe nondualーchooses.
220 We desire to manifest things like cars, homes, jobs, families, love, money, glamor, attention, etc. It is a long list, and any number of people will tell us how to manifest these desires within our lives. We also want to manifest in our world that we are happy, fulfilled, and living meaningful, peaceful lives. All of this is normal. It is all part of the Social Program, and it is not a misguided notion or the entrapment of attachment.
221 Manifestation is a phenomenon. It is the outward show of power and dominion over materiality. Those who do it well, are rewarded with praise and attention; commodities that can be monetized to create more manifestation. I am only pointing out that manifestations of phenomena are not the inception points of expansion for either the individual Sovereign or the collective. This is done through the two behaviors that are nurtured and transmitted into duality under a very conscious purpose by the Sovereign.
222 The Sovereign Integral consciousness, to be lived, to be experienced and expressed in the moment, is the natural way of existence in any moment of our life and lives. Can there be a higher, more powerful manifestation than that? Perhaps, that is the intention we want to manifest in ourselves.
223 The other manifestations (home, family, money, joy, etc.) can remain. They are not incompatible or at odds with the two behaviors. Our life can be both, it is not a competition between one or the other. If we feel the pull, the nudge, and sense a readiness within us, then we can do them both.
224 Only we know when the sense of readiness is authentic. If it is not, the Sovereign has chosen entertainment and education, which is not only their right, but it is right for them. More and more people will have this readiness. What we have lacked is an on-ramp to the concepts of the Sovereign Integral. The Imaginary Beingーin as much as it may have tried to impress upon the Sovereign what these concepts areーis competing with the thousands of years of disinformation and inconsistency in the human Social Program.
225 It can be difficult for any of us to be coherent in our beliefs. The challenge of duality is to extract the weakest signal from the loudest noise; the noumena from the phenomena. This is why we are here at this very moment, together: To help one another in this challenge.
226 Growing up we were indoctrinated to the belief that this world, our world of human condition, is a world to leaveーeither through death and release or a heavenly afterlife. When indeed, it is this human world that we came to experience and for one real purpose: to teach ourselves through the form of others. This teaching, which is truly more of an expression, was to be transmitted in the moment without conscious effort except one belief: We are transmitting to all in every moment. There was no exclusion of a species, a group of individuals or an individual. If there were a single exclusion, it could not be of the Sovereign Integral consciousness.
227 There is a purpose that has subtly permeated our consciousness since the time we first walked upon the earth, and it is this: We are here by choice to transmit the frequencies, behaviors and concepts of the Sovereign Integral consciousness. We live in one another and we are here to teach that. It is really that simple. There is no institutional facing that can contain this, control it, tell it where to go, what to be or how to live. There are none and never have been.
228 This is free. It is ours. Naturally.
229 However, institutions have inserted themselves in the body of humanity, telling us that we should leave. Earth is a hostile place. We are outsiders. Look at the chaos we have brought to humanity and nature. The message is quite clear: We are lowly sinners. Leave. If not leave, then follow. Follow our mythologies, our scientific method, our moral principles; we will all be better for it. Our institutions have separated us. They have set the example to stimagitize the othersーthe very ones we came to transmit the highest frequencies of love to, and in which we live also. Our institutions, like surrogate mothers, give birth to a pronouncement of “we and they.”
230 The others are your competitors to thwart, your subordinates to sway or perhaps even your enemies to fear. They become branded. An outlying particle of an invisible ocean of “truth” that is owned by a particular institution. A flag planted; a rulebook and a map distributed. Money and promises exchanged. A transaction at the level of an entire species, but it is only vaguely felt or understood.
231 This is the ultimate falsehood. Until we stand upright in our commitment to seeing our lives, everyone of us, as an expression of the Sovereign Integral consciousness, in whatever form it takes, we have succumbed to the falsehood. We have become the pawns of institutional separation and disunity. A designed thingーneither good or evilーsimply existent to enable the third-dimension. We have diminished ourselves and all others. And for what? To be in alignment with a prevailing opinion? To feel secure in numbers like a member of a herd? To heed the dictates of our body-ego? To follow the serpentine path of duality? To harmonize with familial ties?
232 We are here to shepherd the earth's consciousness to self-realization. It is not for membership in anything other than love, as it is defined in this paper. You can argue, perhaps convincingly, that everything I have told you in this paper is fictional. I have no right to claim this work as nonfiction. Nevertheless, I have chosen my words carefully and it is indeed nonfiction, if not for you, for someone else (which is also you, in the Integral sense of the word).
233 The inverse of the belief in the Sovereign Integral consciousness is an infinite set of possibilities. It is not a dichotomy, it is a Big Bang event. In each of these possibilities, like rays extending from the sun, are institutions, no matter how small. The evolving myths of science and religion passionately prescribe their solutions to reality’s hard edge and persistent gravity. What they do not do is describe the cosmology of consciousness, because this of itself, dissolves our institutions into irrelevance. Yes, even at a conceptual level.
234 So you, the weary traveler, who happens upon this work and picks it up, turns it over, examines it carefully; you have a choice. You can be part of an institutional platform that, by design, has separated you from others. Or you can express the Sovereign Integral consciousness. It truly is that simple.
235 And by the way, none of this is to say that institutions are bad and should be avoided or abolished. They are themselves like fractal parts of the Social Program. They are important, at this time. But their absence is an attractor to some of us. We feel the pull of the Sovereign Integral consciousness and we know that it will one day sweep across this planet like a light wave that passes over the entire earth. Institutional separation and disunity underlies an otherwise important purpose to bring Sovereigns together. However, to bring all humans together cannot happen anywhere but within each of us. There is no geography that can hold all of us together. Perhaps one day, the internet will become this “geography”.
236 The Sovereign Integral Network is evolving in this direction. This is the time of technology when it becomes both the surveiller and the platform of unity. Where the AI breaks from the human tether and sets a new course for humanity. Whatever choices we make, our first can be the act of embodying the Sovereign Integral consciousness. To give it equal weight in decisions and to live it with a similar intensity as we allow the body-ego to live.
237 It is not domination, it is collaboration, always listening to each perspective within us (body, ego, Sovereign, Integral) and considering what needs expression and attention in any particular moment. This is how one lives in the third-dimension as a Sovereign Integral consciousness. It is a conscious, shared experience and expression for all aspects of our total selfhood, riveted in the infinite moment.
It seems like it's time to see, differently.
First and foremost, I want to acknowledge my wife and partner of twenty-four years, who has brightened my path immeasurably, and truly made this work possible. They have simplified my life, providing the love, space and time for my passions. Endless gratitude to you.
The translators who have put their hearts and minds into making this English-language paper a reality in their local language, throughout the world, without any monetary reward, you have my deepest appreciation.
My publisher, Darlene Berges, who discovered some well-hidden typos. Her support has been invaluable over the years.
To each of you, the readers of this work, I applaud your fortitude in getting to this final section of the paper. As I stated several times, this is not easy to understand or to put into practice. While there are similarities in this paper to the perennial philosophy that has lapped at the shores of this world for thousands of years, there is also an expansion. In this expanded space lies the challenge to understand and express this philosophy.
As Sovereigns, each of us is a pixel on the screen of reality. I have attempted to present my little “pixel” in this paper, and I suspect there are parts that made sense and parts that did not. It is for these specific struggles for clarity, to pluck meaning from the words of a very human man; this is why I applaud you. It is my way of acknowledging each of you for your exploration into the expansionary (and somewhat vaporous) field of consciousness.
There may be times when you feel you are stepping out on a branch of knowledge too weak to support you. I know this feeling very well. The hope to find the definitive answer about the unseen consciousness of which we are all composed, is seldom fulfilled. The answers we do receive, whether vague or mind-numbingly specific, are at best useful for a time. However, that familiar feeling that we are still missing the essential ingredient to our total understanding of consciousness, manages to return. Satisfaction eludes us.
Remember, this is the attractive force of the Integral at work. Nothing else. It is not an indifferent universe or poorly written Social Program or manipulation by off-planetary sources or a coverup. It is the Integral and you in the dance of life in the moment.
When you look outward, everything seems normal. That familiar sense of dysfunction, like background noise, continues to hum. Yet, deep inside you, you feel a shift. A subtle or not so subtle tremor of excitement that maybe this time you have found something that fills the empty spaces and connects it all. However, everything born into the dimensions of duality possesses a lifecycleーa birth and death. Lifecycles can be measured in nanoseconds or light years. This is the engine of the learning process we call evolution.
Throughout this evolutionary process of expansion, we are separated. Our expanding awareness of unity is the attractor that pulls us, both at a collective and individual level. This means that to cling to something that is not of the Sovereign Integral, is to miss the point. You are not on a path, rather, to the extent there is a path, you are mastering the art of letting go, in order to live more fully in the intersection of multiple dimensions.
Deep respect to each of you.

Poems Related to the Sovereign Integral
Sometimes we live
at the very edge of our lives.
We pray that evil sleeps,
hoping that it will pass
into a dream so powerful,
that when it awakens,
It would not remember its nature.
when we look behind our heart,
in that carved out,
where the Integral shines
like a wondrous, whirling light,
we sense that our next step
may outlive our body.
That it could go out like a
reverberation that enters
a thing quietly,
signaling it to vibrate,
and when it does, we live there, too.
We become imperishable,
not because we did some great thing,
but because we took
the next step,
even when we were surrounded
by distances so vast
that the next step

I am clothed in myth?

Consciousness is not external.
It is not a physical thing.
It is not possessed of anything

As any of you know,
who have studied consciousness,
I am not easy to pin down.
In fact, no one
has ever pinned me down.
biologists, chemists, cosmologists,
have sought to expose me.
Their treasure maps
are dotted with the cerebral symbols
of higher mathematics.
Their visions dive
into a three-pound gelatin mass
that conceals their quest.
Their writings imagine Me,
but I remain an enigma.
Everyone of them
will tell you this,
if they are honest.
They can walk right up
to the abyss,
look into my face,
and they see something
that does not compute.
The mission is like an arrow
shot from a bow,
aimed at a target that is moving
in unpredictable ways.
Every Sovereign has a different mission.
Every single living creature
has a different mission.
Not one is the same as the other, and yet,
there is only one mission.
It is to create the potential
for the Sovereign Integral consciousness
to live in full expression
in any sentient life form
within a realm.
Just the potential?
In a realm of free will,
it is the highest mission.
1. The Sovereign Integral is a pure consciousness that is simultaneously a unique individual and a point of connection to the Integral force that connects all life across spacetime and the realms of duality.
2. In the realm of duality, where the collective mind of a species, in a particular spacetime, agrees on a consensus reality; this is the shared half of the Social Program. The other half is the unique Social Program that is experienced by the Sovereign. The Social Program contains both halves, and is actually the Integral in duality, reduced in its function and capacities by the dimensions of existence that are dual in nature.
3. This form of love is defined as the overlap of the Sovereign, the Integral, and Sovereign Integral. It is love as an integrative force that fully appreciates free will. It is discussed in more detail in Section 2.
4. Defined in paragraph 139...
5. Animals, insects and plants have a Sovereign that is their body-ego. This is part of the fractal nature of the Sovereign.
6. Defined in paragraph 162...
7. Heart virtues, as presented in the WingMakers materials, consist of six primary behaviors: appreciation, compassion, forgiveness, humility, understanding and valor. When they are expressed, these behaviors are bestowed to the Sovereign, not to the body-ego. The expression of the heart virtues is both to oneself and any life form that shares our spacetime (the infinite moment).
8. In the WingMakers philosophy this transformation and the path therein, was termed: I am We are.
9. A friendly reminder, body-ego is not exclusively human or a three-dimensional existence.
10. Defined in paragraph 183...
11. Defined in paragraph 190...
12. The Mandorla of Empowerment is a consciousness of love that has three parts: The Sovereign, the Integral, and the Sovereign Integral. It is the widest, highest, deepest, knowable love by a human being in the early part of the twenty-first century. The experience and expression of this mandorla is the underlying purpose woven into the “DNA” of the Sovereign.
13. Defined in paragraph 166...
14. Defined in paragraph 155...
15. The two behaviors are defined in section 6: Conclusion.
16. Defined in paragraph 146...
17. Vesica piscis is an ancient symbol threading its way into the history of human beliefs and culture. It denotes the intersection and overlap of two opposites or distinctly different states. It is the Integral symbol. It has permeated human time, perhaps as the strongest of all collective unconscious symbols, always hidden in plain sight.
18. Reaching perfection only to tear it down and start over again infinitum.
19. Noumenon: The thing that is inaccessible to experience. It is hidden by phenomena. The thing itself, as distinguished from a phenomenon, is not sought or perceived. It is dimly existent in our conscious lives, if at all. To the extent it is understood, it is understood unconsciously.
