REVIEW Í SUBTENSE.CO.UK ☆ Christopher Martin Bache

Hest frontiers of the psyche and yet a work forged by a rigorous intellect and impeccable scholarship A fine example of a coura. Christopher Bache explores the deep ecology of mind as it reveals itself in nonordinary states in in this book p16 Bache s contention is that we need to expand our frame of reference beyond the individual human being and look to the living systems the individual is part of p16 He believes that one of the greatest challenges facing psychology and philosophy today is to grasp the full implications of our interconnectedness p115 He thinks that the fundamental polarity of our nature is the polarity of individuality and wholeness and wholeness includes both depth and breadth p115 it is not individuality itself that is the illusion but our sense of being isolated from the whole p264Dark NightThe book s title points beyond the individual to the collective dark night p16 Christopher Bache is convinced that we have entered a time of unprecedented disruption of life at fundamental levels that will soon reach catastrophic proportions p16 He believes that the clearly we understand the deep structure of events that are overtaking our lives the we may be able ease the pain of the transition humanity is being called upon to make pp 16 17 At a deeper level this will involve a deep shift in how we collectively feel about each other and the world at large p231Transpersonal ParadigmChristopher Bache thinks that we are so deeply habituated to thinking of mind as a private phenomenon that recognizing its collective component is extremely difficult and triggers a chorus of objections p205 What is reuired he says is that individuality is relocated within a transpersonal paradigm p205 This allows us to recognize the dynamics that are visible if we are open to new and startling observations drawn from carefully scrutinized experience p205 While not abandoning our skeptical edge we must push our critical faculties to explore uncharted territory p205 Because we are constantly taught that only individual beings have minds we fail to recognize instances of transindividual mental functioning operating in our everyday life p183 Transpersonal experiences arise from a complex interaction between the mind doing the exploring and the larger Mind being explored p30 This means that we must use mind to explore mind p30 We must also ask what the implications of these experiences are for human existence p7 We need to be sensitive to the limits of human understanding and open to the unknown p39 especially if controversial data has been gathered according to the same methodological standards accepted in other contexts p39Conceptual FrameworkChristopher Bache tries to create a conceptual framework p254 based on his work with psychedelic states p9 his experiences in the classroom p184 Richard Tarnas s overviews of Western philosophy p22 Stanislav Grof s study of the deep psyche p48 Rupert Sheldrake s theory of morphic fields p78 Kennet Ring s observations from NDEs near death experiences p111 and chaos theory p241Bache s observation is that Sheldrake s hypothesis of morphic fields meshes with Grof s experiential data p80 He recognizes the similarity of psychedelic states to NDEs p109 Studying the experiences of many persons together with the possibility of repetition in psychedelic therapy draws out the organic processes involved showing how one state systematically unfolds into another p109 His experience is that the individual and collective energies of everything that surrounds us creates a collective net of influences that flows through our conscious and unconscious awareness p150 Our sense of identity is a transparent reality in continuous exchange with a larger field of awareness created by our previous life experiences pp163 164 Our sensitivity to this exchange increases as our basic sense of identity shifts becoming progressively deeper p164The most powerful context in which Christopher Bache has experienced the field dynamics of mind on a regular basis is in the classroom p184 Bache thinks that at least some of his experiences in the classroom can better be thought of as the manifestation of a group mind p195 Slowly he began to recognize the existence of these fields operating in his classes p195 Eventually it simply became elegant to conceptualize his observations as symptoms of a unified learning field that underlay and integrated the class as a whole p195 As he made the shift to thinking of this something as mental fields a variety of conceptual and experiential pieces began to fall into place p196Provisional ConclusionsMany experiences through the years led Christopher Bache to draw a number of provisional conclusions p196 Bache thinks that when a number of minds come together and integrate their individual capacities it is as though they become phase locked in ways analogous to how individual neurons become phase locked in hemispherically synchronized brain states p209 When persons open themselves to each other and focus on a common goal their individual energies meld in a way that mediates contact with levels of intelligence and creativity that are beyond the reach of these individuals acting alone p209 What cannot be accomplished separately becomes available to those who work together p202Christopher Bache believes that mental fields are always present whenever collective intention is focused in group projects of sustained duration and repeated form p197 These fields appear to vary enormously in strength reflecting a variety of factors p197 The key ingredients for these fields to form seem to be 1 collective intention 2 sustained duration and 3 repetition p198 It seems as sustained and repeated focusing of many minds on a single purpose creates strong currents within the larger field of mind p199Early DawnChristopher Bache thinks that we are only beginning to glimpse the collective dynamics of mind and wants to encourage increased discussion of these important issues p187 The observation of energetic resonance and fields operating in educational contexts has the potential to transform not only education but a wide range of creative group processes p209 The possibilities expand exponentially as we learn to enter into states of synchronized group awareness p209 Bache believes that one of the most important theoretical and practical challenges is learning how these fields operate how to work with them directly and how to manage the enormous energies that are sometimes generated when they are activated p187Bache points out that our individual choices may have enormous ramifications if they reflect our highest potential and seek the greatest good of humanity as a whole p244 As the inherent wholeness of existence becomes a living experience for and persons individuals will find new orders of creativity that could not have been anticipated as long as we were trapped within the narrow confines of an atomistic self referential mode of consciousness p256SummaryChristopher Bache provides a creative and radically expanded view on what it means to be human both individually and collectively He approaches the subject with a deep respect and wish to understand Bache takes the reader into uncharted territory I m not able or prepared to follow every step he takes in the book but I think he has done a great job in balancing his deep transpersonal insights with incisive thinking His writing is characterized by a combination personal and intellectual honesty which makes me willing to listen It s a fascinating book on an important subject
