CQ Saturation Point

I was studying some meteorology a couple of weeks ago, and a small metaphor occurred to me in that context, which offered yet again another metaphor describing the CQ. Note that this metaphor describes both, individual CQ, but is also easily applicable in large-scale considerations.

First, the basic meteorologic idea and context.

Meteorology deals with the air, among many other things. Dealing with the air, air humidity, is one of the components that is being analyzed. When air becomes humid, it takes in water vapor that is being evaporated or sublimated from the surroundings. Thus, air can take in a given amount of water vapor.

This amount is not unlimited. Air has a saturation point. (which is dependent on both, the pressure and temperature it has.)

It is possible to "pump in" more water vapor than the saturation point, but if that occurs, then the water vapor will start condensation mid-air. With other words, the air has taken in more water than it can handle, and it starts to "push out" all the water it cannot contain. The more water (via water vapor) it took in, relative to its saturation point, the faster it will "shed out" the water that is above the saturation point. See: for clarification.

The picture I uploaded depicts the situation. Water vapor condenses at the surface of the water. At the same time, water evaporates from the surface of the water. So you can imagine that the amount of water vapor that is present in the air is always a function of how much water evaporates, and how much water vapor condenses. If more water vapor condenses than water evaporates, then the air loses water vapor, if vice versa is the case, then it gains water vapor. The process depends on the saturation point of the water, which, as stated, depends on pressure and temperature.

It is similar with the CQ. In fact, several features of the air-water vapor process are extremely similar to that of what probably happens with the CQ of the PU.

CQ Saturation Point

Let's start with the idea of CQ saturation. It is clear to me that every single PU has its own CQ-saturation-point. With other words, the PU has a given level of CQ it strives to achieve. If the current level of the CQ is below that saturation level, then Consciousness will flow into the PU. If the current CQ lies above the saturation point, then the PU will employ different means to depose of the "excess" consciousness. Why? Because the PU is in pain with that much amount of CQ in the body. It should be clear to anyone who attempts to become "enlightened" that it does not make any sense whatsoever, to pray for Higher Consciousness, as long as the saturation point of the CQ in the respective body is low.

Similar to what happens with air and water vapor, the PU is also capable of being "infused" with more Consciousness than it can stably handle. This is what we term a Connection Experience. A Connection Experience is any experience where the CQ has risen sufficiently above the day to day CQ of the person, so that it is clearly noticeable. Peak Experiences are experiences that are characterized by a CQ that is only slightly above the CQ - saturation point.

The idea of the saturation point describes well why all connection experiences (but not necessarily connection itself) are temporally limited. Since a connection experience is equivalent to over saturation of Consciousness in the body, it is clear that the effect will subside soon, for every over-saturation naturally flows into normal saturation with time. The stronger the over-saturation, the more abruptly will be the normalization of the over-saturation occur.

Another aspect of the saturation-point is that it allows for a flexible, individual CQ in every human being, but also allows the conception of an average CQ for the entirety of the planet. Determining the parameters that contribute to the saturation point is possible in my opinion, and those parameters can be linked to The System. The LP Workbook 2 essentially depicts the parameters that contribute to the specification of the saturation point.

What determines the Saturation Point?

Among the most important are:

  • neglect of the essential needs
  • violence - thereby destroying the integrity of the PU
  • Instability and Chaos
  • Destruction of Attachements
  • Ideology

Neglecting essential needs restricts the maximum level of CQ due to the pain and discomfort that comes with being aware of the neglect. The more CQ resides in the body, the more aware the person becomes. Thus, in a situation where the essential need is neglected continuously and rigorously, having a high CQ would equate to perceiving a lot of pain, permanently. Thus, to ameliorate the pain, CQ is lowered. In this way, the neglect of the essential needs creates an effective "device" able to control the level of the CQ - saturation point.

Violence destroys the integrity of the PU. To put it as clear as I can, violence is the crossing of boundaries. Sounds "soft". But it is not. By crossing boundaries, people die. When a knife enters the soft flesh, a boundary is "merely" crossed. The same goes for emotional and psychological boundary-crossing (violence). The effects are just as catastrophic as that of the physical boundary crossing, with the difference, that the bleeding is not as obvious. As a matter of fact, it actually is, but we have been trained not to notice it, or to downplay it, or to "cope" with it, to ignore it, in especially brilliant cases to glorify it. Generally, having your boundaries crossed injures the PU. When this happens, usually, the PU starts reparation operations at once, in an attempt to heal what was broken. Ongoing assault of the boundaries of the PU has several effects on the PU. For one, it forces the PU to reorganize its energies towards permanent healing, leaving less for growth, exploration, and everything that is not directly related to survival and minimizing of pain, or adaptive responses to the environment that effectuates the boundary crossing. Second, it forces the PU to create strategies to cope with the situation (adaptive responses), which ultimately, and I must say quite ironically, we then term as psychological, emotional or behavioral "disturbances" or "diseases". With respect to CQ- saturation point, the destruction of the integrity of the PU leaves the RMC with little choice but to retreat. When the integrity of the PU is injured, then CQ needs to be lowered, otherwise psychological or emotional breakdown, overly aggressive stances etc. may ensue. A PU with a high CQ manifests whatever is inside the psyche of the PU to a higher degree than one with a low CQ. The more CQ is in the body, the stronger will it manifest itself. A PU whose integrity has been destroyed, a PU whose ego is "small and nimble", will manifest itself instantly, with horrible consequences. Contradictions would ensue, hypersensitivity coupled with lack of control are but a few direct consequences. Generally speaking, viewed from a "healthy" perspective, the person with destroyed integrity but high CQ will behave in a psychologically "sick" way. Just as is the case with neglect of the essential needs, so does the level of violence create a "device" with which you can control CQ. (Think about world wars in this context for a few seconds.)

Ideology also contributes to the control of the CQ- saturation point. As far as I can see, Ideology is the root of the control mechanism, for it creates the reasons and also models the incentives that later on become relevant for the control of the CQ- saturation point. To be perfectly honest, I have the feeling, that The System has been created with this thought in the background. How to maintain a given - low - level of CQ in the population, regardless of culture and epoch. This is an incredibly difficult task. Ideology controls the CQ- saturation point directly, as well. Adopting the Fool in School archetype effectively lowers the saturation point. The process is quite interesting, so I'll give it a try at discussing it. When CQ is higher, then the PU manifests whatever belief it has more strongly. But what happens when the belief of the PU happens to be one that minimizes its own power? Due to the power of Consciousness, the power of the residing Consciousness is being minimized due to the belief in the Fool in School. It is quite ironic, that it is the power and efficacy of Consciousness itself, that, coupled with the wrong belief, ties its own hands, and becomes weak and incapable. Since power is one of the main, inexorable traits of consciousness, believing in The Fool in School, forces consciousness to back away. It is not capable of being both, powerful - due to its inherent trait - and not powerful - due to the belief system the PU has. Thus, it backs out. The fool in school becomes manifested.


Controling the CQ

In order to control the CQ, it is necessary to create the respective circumstances that specify the saturation point of the CQ.
