I would like to become more specific here: the young person and the learned professor whom I spoke of so far, know by own experience just three states of consciousness, like almost all other people: the waking state of consciousness, the dream state and deep sleep.
Their waking state and their dream state resemble each other and in these two states of consciousness they have captured all their narrow thinking, which as human beings they are nowadays so skilled and capable of: with the help of a correspondingly small minded parental home, with the help of a correspondingly small minded kindergarten and with the help of the correspondingly small minded school and in the same way with the correspondingly small minded university - worldwide.
But we find here with the animals exactly analogue conditions - also the animals have the three states of consciousness. That is, the situation is here similar as already with the genetic code.
But nevertheless we know today quite a number of further states of consciousness, which also can be taught and learned and/or developed and which above that can also be scientifically verified, provided: persons with higher states of consciousness are available for such studies or make themselves available for them.
And when no test persons with a higher consciousness want to make themselves available then the researchers are still left with the self-experiment: in science there are famous examples of self -experiments, specially in research studies of the natural sciences. Not seldom eminent scientists have taken this way to gain scientific insights.
But here we have to take into account that in all known cases it never was about a research in consciousness. That is why this kind of research studies could be conducted in the context of the three known states of consciousness. In the context of the first three states of consciousness one knew which scientific goal one wanted to reach and which resources were at the disposal for the investigations. And sometimes one even had an idea of the research result.
But when investigations in the field of an expanded consciousness are concerned the researcher is hopelessly lost when he himself does not have this expanded consciousness and its effects, which both have to be scientifically objectified by him - because how shall he awaken to research goals in a new state of consciousness or be even able to advance towards them: when due to his limited state of consciousness he faces them like a blind man.
This is the fundamental problem with scientific research studies in the field of consciousness, once the states of consciousness under consideration surpass the first three states of consciousness.
When I listen to top-level researchers nowadays from the natural sciences and look at them, then I often have the impression as if here it is about an endangered dinosaur-generation of scientists, who are equipped and overloaded with a lot of artificial intelligence and cannot want even anymore to have an access to that simple idea of a general expansion of consciousness.
They are like people who cannot understand or do not want to understand that the Massai is viable without a mobile phone.
Based in this state of professional ignorance, in the limitation of narrow artificial intelligence, in the first three states of consciousness of today’s established academic science the mental doors to what Pythagoras - the founder of the term “cosmos” in the present meaning - has meant with cosmic are closed to them.
As a priest trained in the sciences in Egypt and Babylonia, Pythagoras - with the help of music he had structured according to the harmony laws of the cosmos - taught the higher states of consciousness, and connected to them: the art of cosmic life.
Seeing the students of Pythagoras, Socrates and Plato came to know the fruits of this effective teaching method, and they therefore demanded unmistakably:
Socrates recognised in the students of Pythagoras and based on their successful universal and/or cosmic education the huge potential of his teaching method and informs us:
And Beethoven, whom most people think of as a composer only, says of the profession of the learned composers who up to the university level deal with music totally without such potential as honourable, salary-conscious teaching staff:
“Music is the climate of my soul,
there it flowers,
and does not only turn into weeds,
like the thoughts of others,
who call themselves composers.”
