The Observation Problem

We are born into this world knowing only pure love and compassion. We have a intimate connection with the planet and we want to maintain a perfect balance with nature. True love is the oldest power known to man. At the peak of personal development extreme love is felt; extremely love for the planet and for mankind. Everything anyone ever does is driven by love, while it may not seem like it on the surface, even the most heinous of crimes are driven by love; a love of one's self, a love of money, or a love of power.  The battle between the Ego and Compassion are repeated throughout the history of man and in almost all of our literature. The video below, the first of a 3 part series, elaborates on the what it is that prevents us from experiencing and practicing this very same love we are born with.

Dimitri Halley, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Aruba, explains The Observation Problem in psychological terms of projection and Jungian psychology (Carl Jung). Dimitri uses a comparative approach between Eastern and Western scientific and spiritual traditions as well as modern psycho-therapeutic and social traditions in order to explain The Observation problem in his short 3 part video series. The core-concepts in his videos are love and compassion, consciousness, and critical and paradoxical thinking.

Part 1: Observation is Creation
