Our human body is made up of many such levels, each formed by another jump in complexity. Our lowest level of the cell jumps up a level to body tissue, to body organ, to body system and to the whole body. We are therefore formed with many onion skin like levels that all cooperate in complex ways to make one whole human being. It is really amazing how it all fits together. At the same time, in the human realm of consciousness, we are - as far as we know - the only creatures able to contemplate who we are, why we are here and how we fit into the universe. This coherence also allows evolution to happen and that has enabled us to evolve from a microscopic bacterium right through to the complex beings that we are with all our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual capabilities.

Instantly systemic and family constellations came to mind, giving me a buzz of anticipation that this is leading to a fundamental deepening of knowledge about the processes involved with constellations. What a fabulous claim to make.
Irresistible the urge to find out how Ervin Laszlo delivers the goodies, tempered by a customary dose of skepticism considering the grandiosity of the promise. Ervin Laszlo was known to me as the founder of the Club of Budapest; however until early this year I had not had opportunity to delve deeper into his thinking. My skepticism waned rapidly. Bit by bit he builds the case for an informed way of looking at the phenomenon that is our universe. A quest he started — from a non-scientific background- when in his late twenties.
When only five years old he had shown exceptional talent playing the piano and at the age of nine was accompanied publicly by the Budapest Symphony Orchestra to go on pursuing a successful career as pianist. It is more than 50 years ago now since he began to pursue his quest in earnest. He studied and taught science at various universities, obtaining a PhD at the Sorbonne. I am not proposing this to be a book review; much rather is it my reflection of the relevance I perceive in the volume for constellation work, of my personal journey towards understanding and clarity in that regard.
He takes the reader, on a journey through the history of science dealing with the elemental episodes and their protagonists, providing a conceptualisation of the term paradigm shift.
Let me condense my understanding: Science is the process that comes up with theories analogous to and arising from the development of means for the observation of the natural world. Newton for one was limited to the technology of his time in observing nature, yet still able to explain the falling of the apple by postulating a universal law that applies to all bodies in nature: The paradigm shifting notion of the G-Field, with gravity being the propelling force of that field.
A further major development was enabled by the observation of both electric and magnetic forces which culminated in the establishment of the EM-Field thus resulting in an other paradigm-shift.
Each paradigm-shift is a step from the coarser to the more refined understanding of the natural world extending both in macroscopic and microscopic direction.
Einstein simplified the cornerstones of scientific investigation to energy and matter and triggered thus the monumental scientific re-orientation early last century. Particularly the subsequent finding-of-ever-smaller-particles-of-matter-aspect of quantum physics is what forced and continues to propel the development of the next paradigm-shift. What happens at quantum level cannot be fully explained with any scientific theories developed to date. Their nonlocality respects neither time nor space: it exists whether the distance that separates the particles and the atoms is measured in millimeters or in light-years, and whether the time that separates them consists of seconds or of millions of years.
Bert Hellinger gives numerous descriptions of how entanglement is to be understood in the context of constellations. We understand by now that particles are space- and time-independently connected, forming atoms, which are forming molecules, which are forming cells, which are forming organisms and so on.
All of the former are connected with each other independent of space and time. Do these connections happen just randomly as convinced Darwinists would have us believe? Laszlo is adamant in expressing the utter improbability of randomness as the driving principle in the evolution of nature. Many scientists have worked on the probability of our world being the way it is.
So the question is, what makes particles behave the way they do — jumping out of the sea of energy to become matter and reversing back to the energetic state? Something in this representative is formed, he is literally in-formed. Collectively we as constellators have witnessed the effect of in-formation countless times but struggled to understand this occurrence ourselves, not to mention the difficulties in explaining it to the world at large.
How does information travel and subsequently becomes in-formation? Progressing further on this scientifically grounded journey of discovery I found it helpful allowing myself to become immersed in the above mentioned infinite energy sea called quantum vacuum, kind of zooming into it. With images in mind that are coming from electron microscopes or computer generated ones that take me ever deeper into the microscopic domain I find it is possible to enter a meditative state from which to sense the vacuum.
A state not unlike the one I experience while facilitating constellations. From the empty to the full. The quantum vacuum becomes the quantum plenum.
Plenum is appropriate, as it denotes the one important aspect: comprising the All. At quantum level the microcosm and the macrocosm are one and the same. This has been first suspected after it was discovered that light has the dual character of being both a wave and a corpuscular unit, the photon. The photon has become the particle of choice as the subject of innumerable scientific investigations ever since. To me the accepted fact that one particle is simultaneously present in different locations promotes the conclusion suggested above, that particles really are waves.
We associate waves first of all with water. We have observed a pebble dropped into a calm pond creating waves expanding in all directions. This third one is in-formed with the energies of the parent waves. Another important fact is, waves can cancel each other out or magnify one another by way of interference.
In our water filled pond the expansion of waves is limited. The pond called the quantum plenum is filled with waves as well, however with waves that are unlimited both in duration and expansion as that pond is boundless.
What underlies this limitlessness is the waves quality of coherence. At quantum level coherence is more complex. The plenum is thus a field, hosting the mysterious interplay of mass, energy and in-formation. He points out, that the consequences of the field are not restricted to the physical world but apply to the emerging discipline of systematic consciousness research as well.
I always felt an affinity with a concept that proposes: everything that ever happened and was ever thought of, is recorded in an invisible realm, like an immaterial archive. In constellation work the presence of a force field was sensed by all and later so aptly named by Albrecht Mahr.
The Knowing Field and the A-Field are, no doubt in my mind, one and the same the former only being referred to in a specific context, namely in the constellating context. The transpersonal connection to grandfather is established beyond space and time.
His representative in the here and now is human and thus endowed with the ability to resonate. The constellation does not end here however. Are these energies only generated for the duration of the constellation, to dissolve right afterwards? Whether the meeting of the old and the new grandfather waves results, by way of interference, in the cancellation of some or in the magnifying of other grandfather-aspects, is a possibility worth considering. It would not mean history is re-written, it would simply add to the complexity of all there is.
This essay is not an attempt to present conclusions as the absolute truth. A theory which for me fosters a deeply felt understanding of the phenomena we do encounter in constellation work, however not at all restricted to that. I am hopeful, immersion in the A-field is leading us towards answering the question so poignantly posed by Goethe: what is innermost holding the world intact?
It appears as a masculine noun in Vedic Sanskrit with a generic meaning of "open space, vacuity". In Classical Sanskrit, the noun acquires the neuter gender and may express the concept of "sky; atmosphere" Manusmrti , Shatapathabrahmana. In Vedantic philosophy, the word acquires its technical meaning of "an ethereal fluid imagined as pervading the cosmos". Hinduism[ edit ] In Vedantic Hinduism , Akasha means the basis and essence of all things in the material world; the first element created. Thus, first appeared the space, from which appeared air, from that fire or energy, from which the water, and therefrom the earth. It is one of the Panchamahabhuta , or "five gross elements"; its main characteristic is Shabda sound.
