website for philosophical counseling
supporting the treatment
Supportive Problem Solver- Technology
There are about 1000 websites related to so called 'philosophical counseling'. We try to facilitate the access to them, however we concentrate here especially on one particular topic, it means :
the purpose and meaning of life
This subject can be localized on our map of the most important personal matters, which we call the map of the personal universe :
We propose a concrete answer for the question :
" from where we are coming and where we are going ? "
The answer is given through inference taking into account many facts and concepts leading to the theory called here:
cosmological meaning of the human life
The most recent detailed formulation of our theory in Polish language is accessible here .
The conceptual basis of this theory arises ; among other facts and points of view also from insights, which led to the formulation of so called Anthropic Principle and the Omega Point Theory. Many quotation from discussions with people who read the Frank Tipler' s book " The physics of immortality" performed in English is accessible here
Many insights important for the formulation our theory was incited by the work of Matti Pitkanen, who participated formerly vividly in the same discussions and who formulated his impressive inspired theory of cosmology and consciousness.
Dr. Alexander Kealey on his page writes "that philosophical counseling should improve ability to think more clearly and deeply about things that affect your happiness and self-development. These "things" or issues can be mundane, such as problems or questions about work, relationships, money, health, character, addiction, values and moral dilemmas, or they are about more subtle matters, such as spiritual issues, beliefs about God, the nature of the soul, purpose and meaning of life, death, sifting through competing claims of religious authority, the question of self-identity (Who am I?) and making sense of unusual experiences (spiritual, paranormal, psychedelic etc.).
A good collection of links to many
' philosophical counseling websites' are offered by Dr Alexander Kealey
Dr Shlomit C. Schuster.
People have usually complex problems. They need usually simultaneous advices related to social, psychological and even medical problems. We try to help people also in these problems through our large ' psychological counseling website ' ( in Polish language ) accessible here: There are many equivalent websites, formulated in English, for instance like these ones accessible here.
The main switch board of this website is as follows :
discussion about cosmology and meaning of life.

The world as your counselor
We propose immediately, bellow yet another approach. Let treat all the world as your counselor. Formulate your life dilemma in some words and put them to the following windows
1. When you will insert the key
words, describing your problem to the window: " Google Find " you will obtain
massages gathered in data base of all world discussion groups.
2. The same key words inserted to the window "Amazon.com" will allow you to determine the books related to your problem.
3. Of course you can review in a similar way all the web, using the window "Altavista.com" , http://www.kartoo.com/ or some other search engines.
Some other, more
You should know that the WWW pages constitute
a small part of all data accessible already on line but kept in different,
hidden data bases or on other media. The most important gateways to the "
invisible resources " are under:
Free, open encyclopedia:
The largest data base of medical literature are accessible under:
Selected scientific on line journals

The view of our planet
Authors: Andrzej Brodziak, Eugenia Popławska
The good feeling and health depends mainly from the state of the psyche. Apart of common conditions of well being depending from the resolution of problems in the realm of: ' work, relationships, money, health, character, addictions ' the essential factor which control our health is the meaning of our life.
Depression is always associated with the low self-esteem and the feeling of meaningless. The psychotherapy should concentrate not only on the problem of self-esteem but also on the problem of a positive picture ( model ) of the world.
The appearance of the human consciousness is not random therefore the philosophical counseling, which indicate the meaning of life of anybody is not a wishful thinking only.
The troubles of many people to catch a glimpse of the meaning of their life's are caused by lack of a convincing, comprehensible theory explaining why we are indispensable.
The message of the theory of the meaning should arise from confrontation of observable and scientific facts as well from well founded theoretical descriptions of different fragments of the Universe. This kind of formulation can be proposed in any moment of the development of human thinking. The lack of the general theory of the meaning of human life is caused by the paralysis of thinking produced partly by the traditional ideological movements and institutions and partly by widespread tragic- romantic emotional and cognitive attitude.
Anyhow we pluck up courage to formulated this kind of a theory. Its formulation is lengthy and it is accessible in details now in Polish language only. Here we present the summary of our theory in English.We try to illustrate this summary by some mnemonic figures.
[ The final conclusion of our theory is that anybody of us can help in the realization of an extremely important task. We are indispensable to succeed to reproduce the new real world. This conclusion can be comprehensible and useful when we will describe the very probable cosmic cycles of the formation of the self-awareness.
The actual phase of the development of the Universe, characterized by occurrence of the self-awareness of people should be presented in the context of the evolving Universe.
Temporary lets us assume that the Big Bang theory is true. The contemporary cosmologists maintain that the Universe comes out from primary singularity, it means from a very dense bunch of matter or rather ' quantum foam '. The singularity existed above time. During the first cosmologic era the primary physical particles appeared. The early Universe was composed from Hydrogen and Helium. More heavy elements occurred inside of the older stars. We know already that many stellar systems are characterized by the presence of planets.
At the surface of the planets ( at last on our planet ) so called biological life has emerged . Recently, after 14 billions year of the cosmic evolution the Homo sapiens sapiens appeared. Human beings ( as well as dolphins ) are characterized by the self-awareness. It is almost improbably that the occurrence of biological life and consciousness was random. It is rather a cosmic necessity.
It is important to remark that the existence of a galaxy is probably the indispensable condition. It would be difficult to imagine a planetary stellar system with the biological life on the surface of the planet existing in the intergalactic cosmic void. If we will admit that the biological life is a cosmic necessity the quick formation of galaxies in the expanding universe should be comprehended as an important step in the creation of the elementary conditions for the occurrence of the biological life. Probably the massive centres of Bose- Einstein condensates existing in the spiral galaxy are indispensable for the promotion of the phenomena of life and consciousness ( see the chapter " 11.1.3. Cosmology of consciousness " in Matti Pitkanen's on line book [ 2 ] )
The appearance of human self- awareness is indispensable to take decisions about important acts related to the fate of human beings.
People are inquisitive and unconsciously motivated to increase the knowledge and technological abilities. It enables them to develop the communication and memorizing systems. They quickly transforms our planet in a kind of a huge global brain. It is only first step to much more far reaching goals. Just now people want to analyse, record and understand the genetic code. In fact they want to understand the code representation of everything.
Frank Tipler, the author of so called Anthropic Principle ( 7 ) and the author of " The physics of immortality " ( 8 ) , who postulate in it probably unique other similar trial to search the meaning of the human life in cosmological development foresees that the descendants of people will build, in the far future, the huge macro - computer based on the matter of collapsing universe. It will enable the emulation ( reconstruction, in fact resurrection ) of all people who lived before.
Frank Tipler' s theory works good only on the assumption that the time space of the Universe is closed and that it will collapse in the future. Suddenly, in the year 1998 just after the formulation of Tipler's theory ( 1995 ) the astronomers found strong arguments that our Universe is " open " and that its time space will expand endlessly ( 12 ).
Our theory take into account this settlement, however we see also the same drive to build the macro-computer and to implement the essence, especially brains and human psyche on so called second level of implementation. The development of the global Internet, the urge to construct so called virtual reality, the main postulate of all religions about further existence in ' other world' and the recent vision of many science fiction writers ( Greg Egan, Vernon Vinge ), what give usually a good insights push us to postulate that really people will ' scan ' themselves and emulate in the cyberspace. It seems that it is necessary to obtain a much faster and intense development of the thinking and cognition. Why it is necessary ?
Our theses states that the ultimate goal of people is to do something with the sad vision of cooling, dilatating, infinitely expanded time space of our Universe. Probably the descendant of us will try to utilize a massive black hole as a tool appropriate to begin the next offspring Universe. The mighty knowledge, technology and power is necessary however to program and tune the characteristics of the next Big Bang in such a manner that the offspring Universe will obey also the Anthropic Principle. It would cause the similar evolution of the offspring Universe, who should lead to the occurrence of human beings, what will signify in fact the 'reincarnation' of the human species.
Thus people and their descendant of the present Universe will want to master the ability to tune the next Big Bang:Therefore they need to decode apart of the genomic information also the patterns for all reality, including the pattern of the physical and chemical characteristics of the matter. The code representation of all objects should be determined. People, who know the scientific endeavors will agree that in fact the trial of the understanding of everything have already began. ]
Does the presented theory restore the meaning of the human life ? In our opinion: yes !
The theory explain why the effort of people is valuable and that this effort will be rewarded by the possibility of reoccurrence. Probably it will be emphadized beter when we will repeat the message of the theory in tht form of a metaphor:
[ We occurred here on this Earth, in our Galaxy, which is the nest for life and consciousness not randomly but as a cosmic necessity. Your birth was the result of the focused transmissions from different eras and places. You began to realize an important task. The trace of your life will be recorded inside of this particular time- space. You can be ' scan ' in the future and emulated or re-implemented in the hyper - cyberspace. It will enable you to undertake the difficult trial to utilize the recorded, coded pattern for everything to program and tune the next Big Bang, what could cause your re- occurrence on a planet in the new real world. ]
