An organic and holistic world-picture

THE COSMIC WORLDVIEW – A New Paradigm – The Living Cosmos

The Cosmic Worldview presents a New Ontology – a New Paradigm, which replaces the old materialistic worldview with a new, comprehensive world-picture illustrating a living and infinite Multiverse; the all-embracing Cosmos*, where life is controlled and governed by an omnipresent consciousness in harmony with eternal creative principles and precise laws of nature. All living entities are immortal “life-units”, linked together and parts of this conscious, multidimensional Cosmos. New and ground-breaking evolutionary perspectives are also presented, signifying a new era in Biology. Describing a constant renewal and development for all living beings – an eternal evolution of life and consciousness, the Cosmic Evolutionary Spiral.

* Cosmos – the infinite all-embracing Cosmos: in the Cosmic Worldview – Martinus Cosmology, the term “Cosmos” refers to and includes everything that exists – all worlds and dimensions, i.e. our own universe and beyond, including all forms of life and reality. Read more …
THE X-STRUCTURE – The Nature of Life and Reality 
The Cosmic Worldview focuses on the X-Structure; the Basic Nature of Life and Reality, which provides a profound solution to the Hard Problem of Consciousness (the mystery of experience, perception, qualia) and the Hard Problem of Reality (the nature of objective reality). This fundamental and immortal X-structure is in principle the same for all forms of life.
(More about the Hard Problem of Consciousness and Reality in Introduction Part II below.)

LIFE and CONSCIOUSNESS Independent of the Physical Body

The X-structure demonstrates that all living beings have, in addition to the temporary physical body, an immortal paraphysical body/structure with an organic system, to which the physical body is connected and dependent on. This paraphysical structure exists and operates totally independently of the physical body.
This gives us a new understanding of life and provides natural explanations for near-death experiences, past life memories, xenoglossy, reincarnation and demonstrates that consciousness is independent of the physical brain. The Cosmic Worldview also describes the process of reincarnation, how life after physical death continues in paraphysical planes of existence and the course of events that leads to a new incarnation.
Through natural science, we know the physical body, but to understand the abovementioned natural phenomena we must get to know the total organism complex including three levels: physical, semiphysical and paraphysical.

CONSCIOUSNESS, PERCEPTION, QUALIA

The X-structure clearly demonstrates that consciousness as such, does not exist inside the brain, but in a personal, immaterial world and reality that our personal I, in interaction with our total organism complex, particularly our paraphysical organism and its organic functions and processes, continuously generates.
The X-structure explains the very comprehensive process creation/activity of perception – a process by and for the Subject /the “I” – which involves three main levels: physical, semiphysical and paraphysical. It is especially at the paraphysical level that objective reality is transformed into qualia; subjective, immaterial phenomena only existing for the Subject/ the “I”.

THE REALITY-CONSCIOUSNESS TRANSFORMATION PROCESS

The X-structure operates via the Reality-Consciousness Transformation Process – X-RCT Process: the bidirectional manifestation-perception process from unmanifested initial reality into manifested objective reality (manifestation) and the experience of it as qualia, subjective reality (perception) consciousness. – I.e., from emptiness and stillness (initial reality) to movement and quanta (objective reality) to qualia (subjective reality).
The understanding of the X-Structure – the Nature of Life and Reality – and the X-RCT Process provides an insight into reality as it is: the nature of unmanifested initial reality and the nature of manifested objective reality and, not least, the perception process and experience of it as qualia; subjective reality, consciousness/ experience.

THE COSMIC WORLDVIEW – Martinus Cosmology

The Cosmic Worldview is based on the unique and ground-breaking knowledge conveyed by the Danish intuitive philosopher Martinus (Martinus Thomsen 1890-1981), systematized and further developed by his student and collaborator Per Bruus-Jensen (1932-2022).* New Cosmic Paradigm NCP X-AIONS is representing The Cosmic Worldview and the branch of Martinus Cosmology that presents Ontological Principles and New Science, focusing on the great issues of Life, Consciousness and Reality, meeting the need for a new worldview and a more profound understanding of life and reality. Accommodating natural science and contributing to the development of a new all-embracing “Cosmic Science”. This branch is especially represented by the comprehensive work and literature of Per Bruus-Jensen and the X-Research Project by NCP X-AIONS focusing on the Ontology of The Cosmic Worldview.  (NCP X-AIONS in Brief.)

 THE LIVING BEING – “X”; “a nameless Something that is”

As the basic nature and structure of the Cosmos is unknown to man, Martinus has chosen to express it with the letter “X”. Moreover, as the Cosmos in its basic form cannot be explained by or compared to anything known, Martinus also expresses it as “a nameless Something, that is”, additionally defining it as “a Something with the will and ability to experience” and thus a Something that develops consciousness, (i.e. knowledge of something’s being including its own; awareness of internal and external existence, all forms of subjective experience).

All life-forms – all living beings are immortal “life-units”, linked together and parts of the living multidimensional Cosmos.
Per Bruus-Jensen

 A human being is part of a whole called by us the Universe.
Albert Einstein

You are not IN the Universe, you ARE the Universe, an intrinsic part of it.
Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the Universe is becoming conscious of itself.
Each life-form, in fact – represents a world, a unique way in which the Universe experiences itself.
Eckhart Tolle

In the Cosmic Worldview the latter is expressed as follows:
Each life-unit; each individual life-form represents a unique world in which the Cosmos experiences itself.

II. The Hard Problem of Consciousness and Reality

Today many people raise the question: Can traditional science and the current materialistic paradigm provide us with a description of reality as it is? Our answer is “No”, because all human experience is subjective, resulting in a transformed subjective and limited understanding of reality. Primarily we are limited by our sensory organs and the specific way they operate (the compound eyes of a fly, the hearing organs of a bat and so on will give completely different experiences compared to ours). It is notable and very clear that everything described by traditional science is an interpretation of how we perceive it: a subjective view and understanding of reality, an image we ourselves have created through our sensory organs. At “TSC – The Science of Consciousness” conference (University of Arizona) 2014 Deepak Chopra, Menas Kafatos and Niel Theise also highlight the problem in a conference paper headed: “Can Current Science Give Us Access To Reality?” emphasizing that: “Empirical evidence is a description of a species-specific (human) mode of observation in a specific planetary system”. According to The Cosmic Worldview, we can only fully understand reality as it is via intuition, and this understanding is independent of our ordinary perception and sensory organs. The above-mentioned highlights a “Hard Problem of Current Science“; the “Reality Problem” and leads us also directly to what David Chalmers terms the “Hard Problem of Consciousness“, (the problem of experience; the problem of explaining how and why we have qualia or phenomenal experiences).

Traditional neuroscience claims that the brain operates like a computer and consciousness emerges from complex computation among neurons. However, it is evident that the materialistic view is being replaced more and more by a post-materialistic view which is open to the existence of a universal consciousness. This was also clearly demonstrated in presentations at TSC – The Science of Consciousness conference 2016, e.g. via Deepak Chopra: “Consciousness is fundamental and without cause. It is the ground state of existence.”, and via Stuart Hameroff: “The brain ‘tunes into’ consciousness intrinsic to the universe.” And Dean Radin concluded from extensive research: “Results suggest consciousness is an active participant in reality.” But one does not reach the underlying causes of consciousness, its source and fundamental nature, nor the bearer of consciousness. Consciousness is presented more as something autonomous. However, it is notable that Mihretu Guta stressed (TSC 2016): “the problem of consciousness goes hand in hand with the problem of its bearer, the self/person.” 

The Cosmic Worldview focuses on the X-Structure – the basic Nature of Life and Reality, which provides a profound solution to the Hard Problem of Consciousness (the mystery of experience, perception, qualia) and the Hard Problem of Reality (the nature of objective reality). The X-Structure is in principle the same for all forms of life and its main function is the continuous creation of consciousness for its bearer; the Subject/ the “I” (termed X1), which happens through the so-called Reality-Consciousness Transformation Process – X-RCT Process: the bidirectional manifestation-perception process from unmanifested initial reality into manifested objective reality (manifestation) and the experience of it as qualia, subjective reality (perception) consciousness. I.e. from emptiness and stillness (initial reality) – to movement and quanta (objective reality) – to qualia (subjective reality).

III. Background to The Ontology of The Cosmic Worldview 

• Martinus – Intuitive Philosopher and Modern Mystic – Martinus Cosmology

Martinus © Martinus Institut DK

Martinus 1934 © Martinus Institut DK

Martinus Thomsen (1890-1981) usually known simply as Martinus, is part of a long tradition of mystics* and intuitive philosophers. Martinus presents a unique, very logical and comprehensive description of life and reality that allows the reader to step by step acquire a new and deeper understanding of life and existence.

Martinus was born in Sindal, a small Danish village, and grew up in modest circumstances. His education at the regular elementary school only consisted of a few lessons per week and he later went on to work as a dairyman. He described himself as “an altogether unread person”. Martinus had existential and religious musings and when, in 1921, he acted on an impulse to meditate he had several unexpected intuitive experiences that opened up a new area of perception to him. He explained that he had reached an expanded state of consciousness which he termed “cosmic consciousness”. From this new state of awareness, he could “see through” the physical world to an underlying paraphysical reality and by intuition penetrate the nature and structure of life and reality. Through his exceptional intuitive ability, he obtained access to, what he called, an “ocean of wisdom”, (a vast cosmic “database” of information and knowledge).

During his lifetime, Martinus presented, through texts and symbols, a completely new world-picture: Martinus Cosmology – The Cosmic Worldview, describing a living, eternal and infinite Cosmos. Martinus’ work includes extensive and profound analyses and explanations of life, evolution and reality – the fundamental principles and nature of all existence. Martinus’ main work is represented by The Book of Life, (Livets Bog) vol. I-VII and The Eternal World-Picture, vol. I-VI, followed by a long line of complementary books, articles and other writings.

It should be emphasized that Martinus strongly encourages and urges us to make our own explorations of life and nature to verify his teachings, and not to blindly believe anything he has conveyed.

* Mystic: from the Greek ‘mystés’, i.e. someone who has recourse to knowledge from within, from his or her own innermost reaches, unaided by schooling, tuition and theory, intuitive knowledge and insight. Mystics have existed through the ages and in all cultures. They claim, among many other things, that the entire Cosmos is conscious and alive, and that life has a superior purpose.

• Intuition – Intuitive knowledge

Intuition: Instant understanding and knowing, the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.
According to Martinus, humanity is at an evolutionary phase of development where our intuition* is at a minimum level but will gain strength as part of the ongoing evolutionary process; a phase during which our instinct* is diminishing, while both intelligence* and, particularly, intuition are increasing. This progressive energy change and development in our psyche and mentality also entails that egoism will gradually be replaced by altruism. Taken as a whole, this characterizes the new emerging paradigm with its increasing awareness of life and reality.

*Brief definition of Instinct, Intelligence and Intuition
Instinct: automation, autonomy, automatic functions, tropisms, habitual patterns, routines, virtuosity, traditionalism, rituals, ability to believe even fanaticism, dogmatism.
Intelligence: analysis, logic, rationality, expediency, efficiency, recognition/identification, reflection, calculation, foresight, imagination.
Intuition: synthesis, quintessence, instant understanding and knowing (independent of previous studies and our ordinary perception and sensory organs), penetrating, immediate insight, design and generation of ingenious ideas and perfected constructive creativity.

Instinct, intelligence and intuition are three of the extremely subtle qualitative so-called basic or fundamental energies. (Read more Cosmic Basic Energies)

• Per Bruus-Jensen

Martinus’ student and later collaborator Per Bruus-Jensen/PBJ (1932-2022) met Martinus in 1957. Martinus soon realized PBJ´s unique talent and capacity and in 1958 gave him the specific mission to systematize, specify and concretize and thereby further develop the intuitive knowledge that Martinus conveyed. PBJ was tutored by Martinus on a daily basis for more than a decade for this purpose. PBJ devoted his life to this mission which also includes accommodating natural science and contributing to the development of a new “Cosmic Science”. The comprehensive work and literature of PBJ are of great ontological importance.

• Cosmic Science

Martinus termed his intuitive knowledge as “spiritual science” and predicted that it will sooner or later unite with traditional science and become one all-comprehensive new “Cosmic Science”. Not least in this connection are Per Bruus-Jensen’s writings of greatest importance, providing a systematic, detailed description of the Cosmic Worldview, e.g.: “X” – A Complete Introduction to Martinus Cosmology (The X-Work – four volumes of about 2000 pages, English, German and Dutch translations are in progress), Existence and Immortality – on the Ontology of Martinus Cosmology (two volumes of about 600 pages), Cosmic Chemistry, Project Life (the Cosmic Evolution),  (translations in progress).

Since science represents the initial incipient understanding of the Cosmos and existence, it constitutes the periphery of the cosmic- or psycho-spiritual world. It is the early emergence of cosmic consciousness.
(Martinus, The Book of Life, vol. 1, pce. 180)

The purely materialistic world-picture can therefore only put forward a picture of an ocean of highly heterogeneous types of movements, without the same science realizing that they are the expressions of the life or consciousness which exist behind them. Yet this science is nonetheless absolutely essential for mankind, and will gradually become clarified and conjoin with the cosmic science of spirit. Thus these two sciences will progressively become the one science that will be the absolute truth and, as such, constitute the conclusive solution to the mystery of life; inasmuch as materialistic science should naturally be seen as the introduction to this solution or revelation at the level of materiality or in the area of the purely physical.
(Martinus, The Eternal World-Picture, vol. 1, page 84)

The intuition-based knowledge presented in the Cosmic Worldview may in some fields partly be supported and verified through various types of traditional research, but above all we need new methods and not least a new way of thinking. Albert Einstein emphasized: “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

To move forward Science needs humble curiosity and an open mind to what is today called abnormal, unknown and unexplained …
Therner & Loeth

• “The Two Branches”

Martinus Cosmology is characterized by two main ‘branches’, each of which addresses itself to people’s diverse needs and preferences.

In his later years, Martinus gathered his own entire production: The Book of Life, vol. I-VII; The Eternal World-Picture, vol. I-VI; a long line of complementary books; articles and other writings, and grouped them under the collective name, The Third Testament, which presents a new world picture. At first glance, this work looks as if it is aimed at people searching for logical explanations of the content within religions. Martinus also clarifies evident misunderstandings and misinterpretations. In other words, this branch of Martinus Cosmology is instrumental in bringing about an intellectualization of the content of religions, using Christianity as its point of departure. It was natural for Martinus to relate his cosmic knowledge mainly to Christianity, since this cultural tradition played the decisive role as the all-dominating element in his background as a child during the 1890s and early 1900s. This branch is mainly represented by The Martinus Institute in Copenhagen, which is ensuring and providing Martinus´ extensive production.

The other branch focuses on the Ontology of The Cosmic Worldview and has an ontological and scientific bent and character, denoted by its profound analyses and definitions of the fundamental principles and structures in the Cosmic Worldview. Martinus laid the foundation for this branch in his own work, and further by personally tutoring Per Bruus-Jensen and assigning to him the specific mission to systematize, specify and concretize and thereby further develop the intuitive knowledge that Martinus himself conveyed. It should also be mentioned that Martinus’ teaching and his discussions with Per Bruus-Jensen dealt at times with topics and areas which Martinus has not himself put forward in his own literature, but which for the major part are to be found in Per Bruus-Jensen’s production. In brief, the direct aim of this branch of Martinus Cosmology is to present ontological principles and New Science, and accommodating natural science and contributing to the development of a new all-embracing “Cosmic Science”. This branch is especially represented by the comprehensive work and literature of Per Bruus-Jensen and the X-Research Project by NCP X-AIONS, focusing on the ontology of Martinus Cosmology – the Cosmic Worldview.  (NCP X-AIONS in Brief.)

Many people are inspired by both branches. They complement each other, and help us to a more profound understanding of life and reality, and thereby developing and acting with an ever deeper sense of responsibility, empathy and care for all life – fellow humans, animals, nature, the whole planet.

• Paradigm Shift

It should be emphasized that much of the knowledge we are approaching within natural sciences (not least within quantum physics, astrophysics, quantum biology, astrobiology, parapsychology and consciousness research) and our deepening understanding of life, consciousness and reality arising therefrom, in many cases leads to new existential conclusions in line with the Cosmic World-Picture. Conclusions that have been expressed in different ways by several of our greatest scientists and theorists, such as: Planck, Einstein, Wheeler, Bohm, Heisenberg and others.

Moreover, today we see a constantly increasing flow of new information, new thoughts, ideas and research results etc., presented in various fields, in alignment with the Cosmic Worldview. We are at the beginning of a New Paradigm, a post-materialistic view discovering step by step the ultimate nature of Life, Consciousness and Reality.

IV. Important Information Regarding Text and Presentation 

The text below is from Supplementary Information to Ontological Presentation and Symbols/Diagrams (Xom3) and we also refer to this page in its entirety as it contains background perspectives and further developments with comparative and explanatory text, special terms, classifications, references to Martinus’ concepts and terminology, different translations of designations and terms, etc.

Introduction – Modifications, Supplements and Developments by Per Bruus-Jensen and NCP X-AIONS, Therner & Loeth (Löth) (Supplementary section 1)

In the Ontology of the Cosmic Worldview, NCP X-AIONS, Therner & Loeth together with Per Bruus-Jensen strive for and focus on clarifying, specifying and systematizing the X-Structure from an ontological perspective and to present descriptions including principles, functions and processes as well as “organic” and “anatomical” aspects.

In this context, we want to emphasize that Martinus stresses that the “Triune Principle”* (Triplementary Principle/ Triune Operating Principle) is an indivisible fundamental principle, with three functional aspects (X1, X2, X3) operating and functioning as an integrated whole. All forms of division should therefore be seen as “theoretical analysis-illustrations” aiming to facilitate the understanding of the Triplementary Principle and the X-Structure.

* the “Triune Principle” term by Martinus – the “Triplementary Principle” and the “Triune Operating Principle” terms by Per Bruus-Jensen and Therner and Loeth.

It should also be added that for pedagogical purposes there are some simplifications in the work by Martinus and Per Bruus-Jensen.

Martinus clearly points out that he does not present a “complete map” or a “concrete illustration” of life and reality. The X-Structure and the paraphysical reality are completely different in nature from the physical space and time-related reality we know. Similarly, principles, structures, functions, etc. outside space and time cannot be described in the conventional sense via physical concepts and illustrations.
In this context the Danish physicist Niels Bohr can be mentioned, who introduced a “picture ban” in the light of the fact that quantum mechanics cannot be illustrated through physical images, etc., but rather via formulas.

Thus, concepts, diagrams, etc. are merely to be seen as educational aids to facilitate the understanding of the real nature of life and reality, on the way to an intuitive understanding …

The contents of this page also illuminate different translations of Martinus’ terms and designations.

The all-embracing ”COSMOS”; in the Cosmic Worldview – Martinus Cosmology, the term “Cosmos” refers to and encompasses everything that exists – all worlds and dimensions, i.e. our own universe and beyond, including all forms of life and reality. Read more …

We, Therner & Loeth, NCP X-AIONS want to emphasize that our presentations of The Cosmic Worldview and The X-Structure are, in general, of ontological character based on the work of Martinus and Per Bruus-Jensen, without comparisons to other sources and research. The Ontology of the Cosmic Worldview comprises many completely novel concepts (and some already known concepts, such as “energy”, have new and extended definitions and meanings). An open mind will facilitate understanding and the reader is welcome to draw his/her own conclusions and to make comparisons to other sources and conceptions of life and reality.

The ontological model 3 (symbol/diagram and diagram text (Xom3)) has slightly different classifications of the X-Structure (the living being) compared with those of Martinus’ and Per Bruus-Jensen’s texts and symbols. Additional terms, supplements and definitions are also presented and briefly explained on this page. The modifications and supplements, made and compiled by Per Bruus-Jensen and NCP X-AIONS, Therner & Loeth, are based on profound and long term consideration and were mainly presented in February 2016, in the ontological model 3 “The X-Structure; the Nature of Life and Reality – the Living Being” (Xom3).

The changes have been made for ontological reasons and include clarifications and systematizations, thereby also responding to the specific mission Martinus assigned to Per Bruus-Jensen, which was to systematize, specify, concretize and thereby further develop the intuitive knowledge that Martinus conveyed*. It should also be mentioned that Martinus’ teaching and his discussions with Per Bruus-Jensen dealt at times with topics and areas which Martinus has not himself put forward in his own literature, but which for the major part are to be found in Per Bruus-Jensen’s work.

*Per Bruus-Jensen was tutored by Martinus on a daily basis for more than a decade for this purpose and has since devoted his life to this mission which also includes accommodating natural science and contributing to the development of a new all-embracing  “Cosmic Science”.

The background to and aim of New Cosmic Paradigm NCP X-AIONS is to continue implementing Per Bruus-Jensen’s work and presenting The Ontology of The Cosmic Worldview; the X-Research Project – a work and project in close cooperation with Per Bruus-Jensen, made possible by his extensive teaching that, for many years, he imparted to the founders of NCP X-AIONS.

We, Arnold Therner, Birgitta Therner and Steen Loeth, New Cosmic Paradigm – NCP X-AIONS express our gratitude to Per Bruus-Jensen for his trust and heartfelt friendship and for the very comprehensive material he has given to us to manage and convey, based on the unique and extensive teaching he received from Martinus for over a decade.
