NEW: I am Claus Janew's Books Bot. You can ask me anything about consciousness, reality, free will, awareness, creativity and God.

The Self, Emptiness, and Awareness

In this exploration of self-identity, I argue that the self is not a standalone entity but an integral part of a broader consciousness. Deep meditation reveals the self as a construct beyond egoistic confines, interlinked with the external world and others' experiences. Decisions arise from an awareness that transcends individual ego, suggesting that our sense of self is an inexhaustible center of dynamic consciousness rather than an ultimate emptiness.

Alternating Consciousness. From Perception to Infinities and Back to Free Will

Claus Janew
Can we trace back consciousness, reality, awareness, and free will to a single basic structure without giving up any of them? This dialogue founds consciousness and freedom of choice on the basis of a new reality concept that also includes the infinite as far as we understand it. Just the simplest distinction contains consciousness. It is not static, but a constant alternation of perspectives. From its entirety and movement, however, there arises a freedom of choice being more than reinterpreted necessity and unpredictability. The unity and openness of the infinite enables the individual to be creative while this creativity directly and indirectly enters into all other individuals without impeding them.

Great Read. Thank you for putting your work out into a conscious space for all. Much appreciated.

The Reality of Free Will

The uniqueness of each standpoint, each point of effect, can only be "overcome" by the standpoint changing to other standpoints and returning. In such alternation, which can also appear as constant change, lies the unity of the world. The wholeness of an alternation, however, is a structure of consciousness due to the special relationship between the circumscribing periphery and the infinitesimal center. This process structure unites determinacy and indeterminacy also totally in every place. Therefore, everywhere we are dealing with forms of consciousness with more or less freedom of choice and an increasingly unknown depth. We live in a world of choosing consciousness, or rather awareness. In this respect, our environment expresses a deep truth about ourselves.

I am impressed by the comprehensiveness of your interdisciplinary approach. There are some major philosophical concepts which you weave very well into a necessary system of reality: potential, the one and the many, alternation, constant change, the reality and uniqueness of oneiric experience and the whole, interdependence, infinity, the mandate of opposites and many more. The combination of these ideas cannot be attributed solely to any other of the established classical and modern thinkers of whom I am aware. I thank you for your enlightenment.

How Consciousness Creates Reality. The Full Version

Claus Janew
The main argument in this book is the undeniable openness of every system to the unknown. And the fundamental question goes: What does this openness produce? 
We are a part of the infinite universe and an incorporation of its wholeness. Both for us means an individualized reality, through which the universe expresses itself and on the other hand through which it is built up with. It also means our necessity, importance and indestructibility for the sum of its incorporations. Most connections among ourselves are hardly conscious for us. Meanwhile the infinitesimality structure of all consciousness guarantees not only the logical lack of inconsistency of these connections but also the freedom of choice of every individual.
Our goal by no means can be to decide completely consciously. Responsibility contains spontaneity or rather trust in a meaningful working together of the forces. We increasingly become aware of our role in the entire relationship and we learn to contribute optimally to the value fulfillment of all individuals, ourselves included. Beyond the supposed differences between objective and subjective reality, we at some point of awareness comprehend that we create our reality out of our innermost depths.

"A fabulously good work. Arguments and expositions are coherent. Fascinating!"

Why do we exist? Do we actually create reality? What is the root of our being? What freedoms do we have? What connects us intelligently with each other? What is time? What exactly is immortal about us? If you are tired of tradition cult and superficiality, if deep thinking brings you fulfillment and if you also expect practical insights from philosophy, then read "How Consciousness Creates Reality. The Full Version" now.

"Claus Janew's undertaking to put down on paper mental processes and procedures that we cannot always analyze, recognize, or follow with our external senses, and especially the depth with which he treats the subject, is simply admirable." 
Ingomar Doering, United States

"In today's world, which is characterized by the levelling of all values and the selling off of standpoints, the honesty of Claus Janew's thinking is pleasantly striking." 
Dr Wolfgang Dahlberg, Germany

How Consciousness Creates Reality

The present text is a very abridged version of a book I wrote out of the desire to examine the structure of our reality from a standpoint unbiased by established teachings, be they academic-scientific, popular-esoteric, or religious in nature. We will begin with seemingly simple interactions in our daily lives, examine how they originate on a deeper level, come to understand the essentials of consciousness, and finally recognize that we create our reality in its entirety. In the course of this quest, we will uncover little-heeded paths to accessing our subconscious, other individuals, and that which can be understood by the term "God". And the solution to the classical problem of free will constitutes the gist of the concepts thus revealed.

There is no book that explains consciousness in such a clear way as it is given in this book.

Omnipresent Consciousness and Free Will

This is not an attempt to explain consciousness in terms basically of quantum physics or neuro-biology. Instead I should like to place the term "Consciousness" on a broader footing. I shall therefore proceed from everyday reality, precisely where we experience ourselves as conscious beings. I shall use the term in such a general way as to resolve the question whether only a human being enjoys consciousness, or even a thermostat. Whilst the difference is considerable, it is not fundamental. Every effect exists in the perception of a consciousness. I elaborate on its freedom of choice (leading to free will), in my view the most important source of creativity, in a similarly general way. The problems associated with a really conscious decision do not disappear by mixing determination with a touch of coincidence. Both must enter into a higher unity. In so doing it will emerge that a certain degree of freedom of choice (or free will) is just as omnipresent as consciousness - an inherent part of reality itself. 

Dynamic Existence

What is real? What is creation?
Everything is in motion. "Inertness" arises from (approximative) repetition, that is, through rotation or an alternation that delineates a focus of consciousness. This focus of consciousness, in turn, must also move/alternate (the two differ only in continuity). If its alternation seems to go too far - physically, psychically or intellectually - it reaches into the subconscious. In this way, interconnection is established by the alternation of the focus of consciousness. Therefore, in a world in which everything is interconnected, all focuses must reciprocally transition into each other. "Reality" is a common "goal", a focus which all participants can switch into and which is conscious to them as such, as a potential one. Its "degree of reality" is the probability of its fully becoming conscious (or more simply: its current degree of consciousness). Thus, a reality is created when all participants increase its probability or, respectively, their consciousness of it.

The core

As the core of my philosophy, the well-known unity of opposites can be considered, but applied in a new way and with the greatest possible consistency.

However, it does not seem very helpful to conclude from this point, because every "application" must be (and was) independently justified to prove its validity. Thus, the unity of opposites is itself more of a result and only thereby becomes a "starting point". At least it offers a connection to the philosophical tradition (Hermes Trismegistus, Yin/Yang, Heraclitus, Cusanus, Hegel).

Philosophically versed readers can also try to transition from Alfred North Whitehead, Edmund Husserl, Ernst Cassirer or Structuralism by thinking their basic theses more consistently and synthetically. 

A tip for mystics: If you compress the seven hermetic principles into one, you get my infinitesimality structure and thus free will. -Satori

Nonarguments raised by some researchers against my book How Consciousness Creates Reality. The Full Version or its German original, and my responses to them:

1. "It is not written in a modern 'scientific' format."

Correct. It is written in a free style, as in the time when great discoveries were made in philosophy.


Creating is an endless game of separating (projecting, that way changing) of inner aspects, so getting a new individuality, which we can rejoin (and re-enjoy) then. One moment later we separate a new form of our infinite inner reality and so on. We integrate all these "objects" in a new manner, while our awareness expands. This awareness also just means going into restricted experiences and coming back to the bigger "picture", that now has become more comprehensive, both consciously and subconsciously.

I have been trying to understand how people come to their opinions. Pure logic and impartiality are rare - largely independent of intelligence. Emotions constantly distort thinking in one direction or another. Fear of something in particular does this. Often subliminally, but you can see it very well if you pay attention. In discussions, I can sometimes see, as if under a microscope, how someone fails to think ahead at a particular point, but always turns back to what is pleasant. And, of course, the appearance of rationality has to be maintained.

What has love to do with creativity?

If love is (re)union with one's own potential, then creativity is its realization. If creativity follows the urge to realize oneself, to reflect, expand and harmonize in new ways, then love is the emotional expression of the underlying meaning.

Where does this sense of creative urge come from?

Interaction (exchange) with spiritually and mentally harmonizing beings, consciousness focuses and concepts creates a special awareness. It is characterized by a higher rate of vibration (alternating frequency) and greater involvement of a consciousness close to the essence: The loved one is always on our mind and is important in a subtle or intense way.
