The novel approach of this new philosophy and logic, Holophany, is to utilize the hidden potential of reality instead of the conventional way of relating to phenomena or situations. Instead of assessing, categorizing and seeking the lawfulness of phenomena, Holophany focuses on those principles that generate phenomena or the emergence of meaning - any meaning, any reality. Whereas we were told that truth will set us free, the many truths that we were given became scientific, social, economical, religious and personal dogmas that instead of setting us free, imprisoned us in straitjackets of beliefs about how things are or how they should be. Holophany provides the means for the exodus from this slavery of our own minds. HOLOPHANY means, manifesting wholeness: holo being wholeness, and phany, manifestation in Greek - the act of manifesting wholeness. Logic ( Could there be one generating principle for all aspects of existence? The answer is: YES. The Holophanic Loop Logic encompasses the long sought after unifying principle, the most fundamental processes that constitute Nature, our thought processes or life. The Loop Logic ( is a unique structure that on the one hand, proves the necessity of existence, or how there is something from nothing (, and on the other, this is a logic that provides a comprehensive exposure of most aspects of the human condition. Whereas conventional logic failed to oust the shunned indefinite or undecidability, the Holophanic Loop Logic found the indefinite to be indispensable and embraced it. The stunning result of this insight was the emergence of a unique worldview that can change not only one's personal outlook on life, but also help generate new sciences and technologies. General Philosophy ( For over two thousand years philosophy ruled the lofty towers of wisdom, and philosophers asked eternal questions: how is there something from nothing? ( How do I know that I am me? What is the nature of knowledge? What is life? Does consciousness outlive the body's minute existence? How can we understand infinity with our finite minds? Can the mind understand itself? Natural philosophy was one of the many disciplines of philosophy. But when Descartes' (French philosopher and mathematician - 1596-1650) mechanistic worldview separated the mind from the body, natural philosophy broke free from the shackles of spirituality, and became science. Science evolved with giant leaps fostering technologies that changed our lives. And what happened to philosophy? Like any obsolete field of study, it turned into the history of itself: philosophy professors are paid to quibble over what this or that philosopher of yore meant when he said so and so - oh, yes, hair-splitting the wisdom that was - accompanied by loud ruminations on morsels from modern science. Although technologies can continue to develop with enormous swiftness, these technologies are based on the scientific paradigm that was conceived in the beginning of the last century. Science has reached its own impasse, direly needing new directions. But philosophy has fallen from grace; from trying to provide a clear, all-encompassing conceptual overview of existence, from being the guidance of scientific endeavor, to merely trying to explain science. Unable to bridge between rationality and spirituality, at most, philosophy today rationalizes the need of spirituality. However, like a Phoenix, philosophy rises again from its ashes in the form of Holophany: a rational spirituality based on the Loop Logic (, which can guide science to new plateaus. See The New Paradigm ( How is there Something from Nothing? ( and The Mathematical Structure of the Loop Logic - Is that How God Thinks ( the purpose of Creation (, God (, consciousness, experience and so on, is not based on faith; faith and beliefs state how things are - whatever is believed to be the truth. Holophany relates to the structure of beliefs - any belief, and having found that the structure (emergence) of beliefs is identical with the structure of anything else, this philosophy regards any belief, any truth as any other empirical object. The difference between these objects is their contents whereas their structure is the self-same structure as delineated by the Holophanic Loop Logic. And so, we can understand the structure of experience, the structure of beliefs, the structure of physical existence. This structure is rational, and that is spirituality: this isomorphic overall structure of being. If God is responsible for the emergence of everything, then God is this isomorphic logical structure. Holophany was conceived through psychic experience inspired by SHET. What is SHET? (, the ADAM KADMON from Kabbalah (Cabala) ( interpretation of SHET, as well as Heralding ( about how I receive information from SHET. SHET Sessions ( Sessions with SHET have an effect of activating the creative aspect in the questioner, so that people who come to ask questions, inspired by SHET, find creative solutions to their problems. The answers are neither a yes nor a no, nor prophesies of a predetermined future (the future depends mostly on what we do), but a different looking, which renders creative ways out of stuck situations. The most common question asked is, in its various manifestations: Why am I stuck? What stops me? How can I overcome this or that obstacle? The underlying topics can be personal or theoretical, like those posed by scientists and engineers when they come to a dead end. SHET has provided us with the understanding of the mechanism underlying creativity, be it artistic, intuitive, psychological or scientific creativity or creative solutions to daily life problems. This underlying mechanism is the infrastructure of SHET's philosophy. He teaches not by preaching or by conveying new dogmas or referring to old ones, but by triggering, stimulating the minds of his students. In SHET's words: There is nothing to teach except tools. Teaching people how things are is teaching them beliefs and dogmas. To educate people to become moral citizens, you need to teach them enough tools and logic, that way of thinking which allows them to use these tools. And then, they all will be moral. You have not understood yet that the tools I give are the essence of existence. There is nothing but relations, the way you relate, which creates meaning and feedback, and even physical objects. So if you teach the tools to greater depth, then you know you don't need more.

We want miracles, riches, happiness, glory, and we want it in three easy steps. But perhaps, the tremendous stress caused by the fast pace of life today is due to skipping the necessary steps that could make us contented? When you are encouraged to know who and what you are, this is an invitation to define yourself. First, this limits your possibilities to be more than what you have defined yourself to be. Anyway, you won't be happy for a long time with any definition, and so, you'll constantly try to improve it, which is the second flaw: constant preoccupation with the self. Notice an interesting fact: the more you think of yourself, the more dissatisfied you are with your life. That's because the more you think about life, the less you live, just as the more you think about yourself, the less you experience. When you glimpse your child for the first time and tears of awe blur your sight, you don't think about yourself; you experience the rapture and you remember that moment for the rest of your life. It has meaning for you, it is valuable. Such moments make up the unique you, and not what you think about yourself, or what you think others think of you. You cannot grow by wanting to grow, by focusing on yourself. When your world is between you and yourself, then this is a very small world. You cannot grow by comparing yourself to others. You cannot grow by trying to enhance your self by becoming more separate from the rest of the world. You grow through responsibility, through response-ability. When your response-ability grows, then every creature of the world is within you, and then you are the world. Individuals addicted to desires for the self and fears for the self are easily controlled. Anyway, they are too shallow to have their own desires, so they can easily be manipulated to have those desires that best fit the purposes of the ones in control. By spreading rumors of constant danger, they trigger the wish for certainty and more definition thereby further encumbering the real potential of the individual. The more shallow the individual grows, the more he/she expects to be rescued, protected, reassured, and is willing to vote on whoever promises that. Holophany does not teach dogma or what one should think, but provides a valid method of thinking. What is this valid method of thinking? The abstract way of putting it is, the process of perception, the process of definition, the structure of any reality and what it infers, the process of how anything gains meaning. The down to earth way of putting it is, how to be a balanced, compassionate and active individual, the potential to love, learn and have fun.
