I've accessed Infinite Consciousness many times in many different ways. The lower states of it look similar to your normal field of vision. But when your consciousness becomes way more infinite than that (yes, there are many degrees of more infinite), then it starts to look something like this:

infinte-consciousness-01

infinte-consciousness-02

If you think it's beautiful, you don't know how right you are. It is Infinite Beauty.

It feels as though the entire universe or "dream" converges into a pure abstract singularity of consciousness. And if you become even more conscious (yes, that's also possible), then even the colors unify together and the dancing motion freezes into a perfectly still, absolutely clear and formless infinite singularity. PURE INFINITY. It is so perfectly self-aware that it does not even have a form. At this point you become the 100% Godhead. There is no more life, no more death, no more world, no more people or other beings. You rest as absolute ONENESS & LOVE, FOREVER. It is a degree of enlightenment so total that it deletes the entire universe. Only near this point do you finally understand what reality/God really is. LOVE.

The problem is that the final state cannot be depicted because it is so totally formless. But the above image comes close to giving you a vibe of it. Imagine the above, but static and formless. This singularity contains within it every possible thing that would be dreamed or imagined. But in pure abstract potential, unactualized because it does not need to actualized because the actualization of it would diminish its Unity. This is a nonduality so total and perfect that it ends physical existence. And for the first time you feel COMPLETE. You've found what you've been search for your entire life but didn't know it: INFINITE LOVE.

This is the highest holon.

Good luck meditating or self-inquirying your way there. Maybe you can reach it with a serious dose of DMT or 5-MeO-DMT. But even that is doubtful.

"On the historical scale, the damages wrought by individual violence for selfish motives are insignificant compared to the holocausts resulting from self-transcending devotion to collectively shared belief-systems. It is derived from primitive identification instead of mature social integration; it entails the partial surrender of personal responsibility and produces the quasi-hypnotic phenomena of group-psychology.

It was not individual aggression which got out of hand, but devotion to the narrow social group with which the individual identified himself to the hostile exclusion of all other groups. It is the process we have discussed before: the integrative tendency, manifested in primitive forms of identification, serving as a vehicle for the aggressive self-assertiveness of the social holon.

To put it in a different way: to man, intra-specific differences have become more vital than intra-specific affinities; and the inhibitions which in other animals prevent intra-specific killing, work only within the group. In the rat it is the smell which decides who is friend or foe. In man, there is a terrifyingly wide range of criteria, from territorial possession through ethnic, cultural, religious, ideological differences, which decide who stinks and who does not."

Check this out if you want a profound understanding of what's going on in society at the systemic level:

This is a some grade-AAA stage Yellow systems thinking. Notice its quality compared to typical discussions of politics you find on YT or in the news. This is the difference between Tier 1 and Tier 2 cognition.

Imagine how society would transform if 50% of the world started thinking at this level of sophistication and nuance. Everything would change. Part of my mission is to get people to start thinking more like this.

I don't subscribe to Hedges' pessimism, but I admire his perspective:

Back in 1680, Father Louis Hennepin, compared a Mississippi River paddlefish to a devil:

"The eagles, which are to be seen in abundance in these vast countries, will sometimes drop a breme, a large carp, or some other fish, as they are carrying them to their nests in their talons, to feed their young. One day we spied an otter, which was feeding on a great fish upon the bank of the river; which fish had upon its head a sort of beak about five inches broad, and a foot and half long. As soon as the Picard spied it, he cried out he saw the devil between the claws of the otter. This surprise was not so great, but that we made bold to feed heartily upon it. The flesh of it was good; and we named it the sturgeon with the long beak."

So people ask me, "Leo, how can I break out of wage slavery without having lots of money to start my biz? Don't I need to have lots of money first?"

No, that's where bootstrapping comes in. You bootstrap a small biz by strategically finding a niche that requires little start-up capital but can have huge profit margins. And the best way to do that is by making yourself a massive value provider.

Here's a real-world example:

Eric Barone made a farming game called Stardew Valley completely by himself, at home, in 4 years. His game sold 10 million units at $15/each. Steam takes a 30% cut, which left him with something like $100 million! $100 mil in 4 years is a pretty good pay off.

Now you say, "So Leo, to get rich I should start making farming games?"

No. The lesson here is not to start making farming games.

"So Leo, I should start making other kinds of games then?"

No. That's not the lesson either.

Don't draw your lessons so narrowly. Think outside the box. The true lesson is to find a new niche in whatever field you want that will have an analogous pay-off ratio as what Eric Barone did.

Don't expect anyone to tell you what this niche is. If you chase after the niches that have already been filled and served you will never get it. You must find/create your own unique niche. And of course to serve this niche you must turn yourself into a skilled creator and massive value provider. The reason that his farming game generated $100 mil in value is because it offered that much value to people in the world.

That is the real get-rich-quick scheme. Although of course it ain't so quick or easy. But it is doable if you're serious. But see, if you told most people that they will earn $100 mil, and all they have to do is put in the time and build skills for 4 years, they would not have enough discipline or vision to do it.

All you really need to break out of wage slavery is one hit. Strategically channeled creativity can pay off like crazy. Nothing is really stopping you from creating $100 million in value — aside from your lack of creativity and vision.
