EnlightenGrid: Worth Pursuing?
I’ve always wanted a Consumers Reports of Enlightenment, something that looked at all the tools, techniques, teachers, and teachings on the whole psycho-spiritual spectrum and that could reliably tell me what was a good value and what was likely to work for me. Both Ken Wilber and Charles Tart explained to me personally why it wouldn’t be possible to create such a thing, even with the web, but I’d still like to see it. Why? Spiritual Pragmatism. What works, works. And almost everyone I know really wants to know what works.
As a first step, about five years ago Gabriel DeWitt and I spent some time working out a kind of grid, a 2D map, that would allow us to at visually locate roughly where a psycho-spiritual entity was, or more accurately, where it’s website showed it as being, with criteria that could be objectively evaluated.
Not sure if this particular artifact from 5 years ago is still of any value. My real question is whether such a thing is worth pursuing generally, some kind of map or atlas of what is out there, and some way of beginning to catalog and organize it in useful ways.
