Lifespan Development, the Subtle Kind.

In childhood, many aspects of our growing are tangible and visible. Every month, every year we become taller, we learn new skills and it is easy to see the progress. Think of all the pictures from kinder garden or school. You were embedded in your family, you enjoyed your first friendships and constantly learned about social interaction. All of these experiences left their mark in your brain. Even more: our brains actually get programmed and shaped by our cultural environment. It’s like a sponge, absorbing every impression, every rule, every strategy for problem solving and stores them in our subconscious Self. Thus, growth becomes more subtle, more complex and mostly invisible – even for ourself.

The Natural Process of Inner Growth

The test about our socio-emotional development allows us to realise, how beautifully, richly and uniquely our inner growth has unfolded. It’s a kind of snapshot of our unconscious self. And it’s like your memory box with pictures of your childhood or adolescence: each stage, each lifetime has its glorious moments and its downfalls. There is no “better” stage, just earlier and later ones. Every stage has its very typical resources, charming aspects and also blind spots or potential for conflicts. Like a 4 years old child is not “better” than its 2 years old brother. It simply has more experiences.

Stability is Challenged by Development

Our graphic shows the pathway of development from one stage to another. A stage is like a plateau. Once you have reached it, unconscious patterns and routines, filters, beliefs and themes enfold in every perspective of your life. Most often this enfoldment feels quite stable. The passages between stages feel more like a rollercoaster of emotions. Very often different kinds of crisis and conflicts arise to boost your development.

In average we develop from one stage to another in 10 to 15 years. But there is no direct link between age and socio-emotional growth. You can stay in each stage for your whole life – but it is unlikely. Quantitative research has shown, that most human adults (68%) are located between the stages 2 (the HEROIC SELF) and the passage to stage 4 – the EMANCIPATING PASSAGE, only a quarter (25%) make it to stage 4, the ETHICAL SELF. The next passage is very special because of a deep neurological integration of our brains, hence its name: TRANSFORMING PASSAGE. Just 6% of us are experiencing this phase during their lifetime. Stage 5 is rarely being reached (1%) and if so, usually rather late in life. The great and humble standouts in society, well known for their service to mankind over hundreds of years make up the stages 6 and 7.

What is reality? EN

What is Reality?

What is Reality?

Find Out How to access the Quantum Field to reach for any Information You Seek. That's what happens if Quantum Physics meets Neuroscience.

Only 0,1% of all information makes it to our mind…

If we trust latest studies of the leading edge consciousness researchers in Harvard and Princeton, reality is just an individual construct. It’s made up of unconscious patterns, beliefs, experiences and expectations. In understanding how to change these artefacts we are really, in the truest sense of the word, able to shape our reality – up to 100%.

Neurologically, only 0,1% of all sensory stimuli and environmental information we receive make it to our MIND. Thus, 99,9% (!) are filtered, we never consciously experience them. (Nevertheless, this much bigger part of what we perceive as Individual Consciousness is being impacted by these 99,9%. Read more here). Furthermore, a connection based on Quantum Physics is rooting in this fact: The further we have grown along our line of socio-emotional development, the more intentional, stable and positive we are when creating our emotions.


“Creation then is about the generation of a frequency or your personal energy. If you’re generating a frequency, you’re synchronizing your energy to the frequency of some possibility that already exists in the quantum field. Once you generate a new frequency that carries an intent or information from your internal state of being, then you’re connected to a new future.”[1]


The elegant way to Create Your Reality

And that again seems to be key to access information stored in the various layers of consciousness. So life is not about hoarding books and trying to jam all that knowledge into our brain and have all answers handy in a theoretical manner.  In a much more elegant fashion it’s about activating the ability to reach for any kind of information we need. For the first time it’s possible to explain reality creation not only in a tangible and scientific manner, but actually implement it in everyday life.


How is this practical knowledge?

If we combine the US Findings in neuroscience with quantum physics it’s already an intriguing story. But when you add the European tradition of embodiment, the so called Systemic Approach, you get incredibly powerful new tools for human development. Tangible ones, implementable by any individual, group, company, bridge club, football team – with immediate results in personal as well as business success. So now, for once, human lifespan development cannot only be measured, but actually be furthered.

The Quantum State of Consciousness

The Quantum State Of Consciousness

What is Consciousness? That is a raging debate between neuroscientists, philosophers as well as IT-experts - And if you invite quantum physics it all gets really crazy.

What is Consciousness?

And how does it define our behaviour? How much of it is located in our brain? And where else in our physical form do we actually “think”?

This fundamental question is the hardest riddle of neuroscience today. Our cultural approach to answer it has been influenced over centuries by one of Europe’s most renown philosophers: René Descartes. He was convinced that body and conscious mind are two different substances: the first is made of matter, the other is immaterial. His ideas had influenced neuroscience until a few decades ago, but the field has moved on. Today, it is widely accepted that our brain, even our whole body has an important role by giving rise to consciousness.

But how? That is a raging debate between neuroscientists, philosophers as well as IT-experts, who are working on robotics and artificial intelligence. And if you invite quantum physicists to the discussion, it all gets really crazy, as Jeanny remembers vividly:

Individual Consciousness - or not?

“A couple of years ago, I was sitting in the big plenary room of Forum Alpbach. Each year, end of August, scientists, technical experts, politicians, managers and other opinion leaders from all over the world come together in a tiny, romantic alpine village in Austria to discuss the burning questions of Science and Society. This particular year, 2014, the opening session was about “Us and Our Brains – Neuroscience at the Crossroads”, a talk about neuroscience and the latest findings about consciousness and meaning making. The speakers, all of them at the leading edge of their field, from the US and Europe showed us pictures of tomography, colourful graphics of brains at work and explained their actual findings. After 1,5 hours the panel started with questions and answers, as a grizzled man with a wicked grin rose his arm to ask a question. Everybody in the room knew him: Austrian born Prof. Anton Zeilinger, one of today’s globally most popular quantum physicists and definitely a candidate for the Nobel Prize. His work is about quantum communication and quantum entanglement.  He defined a process how to get unbreakable code with entangled particles, and how to “beam” or (to say it professionally) quantum teleport information from one place to the other without time delay.

“I’m just a physicist…” he started his question “but how can you still take it for granted that consciousness is a phenomenon which arises and can be shown in one single brain? Quantum Physics has already disproved this concept!” Silence. The other scientists had no answer. And they could not discard it since it was raised by an honoured fellow scientist.”


Now, why is this relevant? Because taking Zeilinger’s remark into consideration – backed by latest scientific studies – reality obviously is just an individual construct made up of unconscious patterns, beliefs, experiences and expectations. A totally subjective and highly individual perspective on the same “thing”. Quantum Physics shows, that information is the basic concept behind all universes. We all have the same access to any kind of information. What we perceive as vital is a matter of choice. Making this choice a conscious one is what our work is all about.
