This website brought to you by Margaret Harrell, the author of Toward a Philosophy of Perception.

Toward a Philosophy of Perception introduces the Love in Transition series, published in English in the "Lucian Blaga" University of Romania, to the United States. At the same time it adds a large number of Harrell's highly detailed cloud photography. Extending slightly into the infrared and ultraviolet range, they feature unusual colors in the intent to create paintings. Perception is dealt with from within the Blakean tradition of seeing several levels at once and also from within modern theories that vision is always incomplete, but we "fill in the blanks." Of note is a long extract from an inspirational memoir written for the Exceptional Human Experience Network, "A Man Called Milton [Klonsky]: Experiments in Consciousness. Also included are a few samples of unprogrammed computer printouts that psychically reorganize what was on the screen. Drawing it all together is the theme: "the magnitude of human potential."


"The wonderful aspect of these cloud pictures is that it leaves the reader to be him/herself and to see that as adequate and good . . . rather than floundering around trying to see something that won't quite come into focus for that person."

"This is Margaret A. Harrell's gift, . . . the images and the writing that goes with them. . . . [She is] an energy manifester and she's bringing it through these energies. . . . This is not only an art book, it's not only an intellectual book, it's about raising consciousness. . . . [The images are] something uniquely different . . . aren't in the Earth archetypes."

Speaking Categorically

 Everything is energy. Energy is traceable back to the fact of atoms. Everything is atoms. Me, you, frogs, trees, stones, books. Everything that is nature, human, chemistry, inorganic chemistry-a fragrance. It is due to the organization of atoms. That means that because these atoms move about and run into each other, colliding, annihilating, changing, being born into a higher or lower energy, they therefore continue carrying the energy of the universe into new situations, new positions, NEW STRUCTURES.
 If this were not so, there would be no universal order or law, no universe-not the way we know it. These laws are called laws of physics. Where the intersection-the controversy and "problem"-comes in is that certain things seem to violate these laws, yet they are also composed of atoms. And atoms obey laws. There is the mind, the soul, the higher mind, the higher realms-could they be responsible and be beyond the laws of physics? But the laws of physics are also theoretical, as is metaphysics. The laws of physics, when we get to quantum mechanics, bring us down to the smallest common forms that all life and everything in the universe SHARE. These atoms, visible through the MOTION they instill in what is around them. Visible at first BY IMPLICATION. Cloud chambers and then huge super accelerators were set up, to view the results of particle collisions and sometimes catch the energy or move it into specific TASKS. All of this, in cross-connections-tracks the energy makes BETWEEN DISCIPLINES. This book studies us as creatures from the atomic realm (behind that from Light, and the fiery furnace in which the universe, as it first existed as far back as we can trace, emerges)-who therefore, to create more comprehensible human laws, need to know something of atomic laws. Because in us, and in our cells, governing such basics (sometimes called fatalities) as whether we live or die (whether our cells, unknown to us, have a program, a decision-NOT IRREVERSIBLE-to live or die), are these atomic laws, of motion, conservation; that is, exchanging energy evenly, giving out and replacing so as to have overall stability (what diminishes in one form, in parallel, increases in another, a form change). Not that that means individual stability. The balance in the universe subsists inside a system in which things are moved around. One location intensifies, when another loses. (Alternately, things are at rest, but they still have energy POTENTIALLY).
 BUT DOES THIS ENERGY EXCHANGE OF THE UNIVERSE HAVE TO BE REFLECTED IN HUMAN COMPETITION, which makes us therefore carbon copies, or mere mechanical reminders, of this universal law of conservation-which (if unconscious) makes the human condition one of universal competition?
 Higher up, however, where we come in, are laws of love and compassion, justice, mercy, which (qualitative) do not necessarily obey-or not with the same results-these physical laws of conservation of energy, by removing energy from one place if it is added in another. On the other hand, for application, they require a kind of detachment, so as to have fields of objectivity. We call this humanly possible position "nonattachment."
 So these connections-in universal law and the human condition (that is, what it means to be inside physical reality but with the impression that it is NOT MOVING, when in fact, not just in physical objects but in the consciousness always emitted by and born from events, it is)-are some of the preconditions that allow this series to be written, always striving to say something before the very observation of it changes the meaning and emphasis. For the reason, partly, that to describe (observe) might have the effect of removing the energy-thus shifting it to SOMEWHERE ELSE. To hammer that point in, there are the printouts of the pages, which illustrate-where common sense and our level of mastery of physical law do not-that there is some way to override a programmed instruction to the computer. BY SOME ENERGY LAW.
