    Hi, I’ve just finished 6 months of very early mornings to complete this video called ‘Luke Skywalker’s Expansion of Consciousness’ which I’d like to share.

    I came here as I know that we have JC to thank so much for making Star Wars the brilliant entertainment and spiritual guide that it is. I believe this video shows how the Original Trilogy is far more of a spiritual guide than most of us previously thought.

    I think JC, Alan Watts and Carl Jung would all appreciate the connections that are there between what the authors of The Ten Terrains of Consciousness wrote and the Star Wars Trilogy. Definitely some very strong ‘Cosmic Winks’.

    Please set this video to 4K regardless of your screen resolution to see it with the intended quality.

    Thank you, Chris, for sharing this production. A labor of love, yes, but the quality of the presentation, including the graphics, the pacing, the narration, are clear.

    Though I tend to collect theories of consciousness, the Ten Terrains model has been flying my radar. Luke Skywalker’s story arc is a useful entry point, and certainly served its purpose, prompting me to visit the Ten Terrains website.  It does seem a useful model, and I appreciate that the authors, while explaining differences, do not set it at odds with the many other helpful models.

    I am curious about Luke Skywalker’s development in the final trilogy of the film series, and where the seeming setback, when  his failure leads to the destruction of his school and death of his students, fits into the Ten Terrains model.

    Just a brief housekeeping note: We ask that forum participants post their creations (papers, art, video, music, etc.) in the Share Your Work Corner (a subforum within The Conversation with a Thousand Faces forum). Eventually I’ll move this thread over there, but for the moment I’ll leave it here so more eyeballs see it.

    Hi Stephen, thanks very much for your response. The Model is not well known at all since it’s first presentation in 2015. A friend of mine recently wrote the following to me:

    “Through a character in his book Bluebeard, Kurt Vonnegut says that “most people cannot open their minds to new ideas unless a mind-opening team with a peculiar membership goes to work on them. Otherwise, life will go on exactly as before, no matter how painful, unrealistic, unjust, ludicrous, or downright dumb that life may be.” He continues:

    “The team must consist of three sorts of specialists. Otherwise, the revolution, whether in politics or the arts or the sciences or whatever, is sure to fail.

    The rarest of these specialists, he says, is an authentic genius—a person capable of having seemingly good ideas not in general circulation. ‘A genius working alone,’ he says, ‘is invariably ignored as a lunatic.’

    The second sort of specialist is a lot easier to find: a highly intelligent citizen in good standing in his or her community, who understands and admires the fresh ideas of the genius, and who testifies that the genius is far from mad. ‘A person like that working alone,’ says Slazinger, ‘can only yearn out loud for changes, but fail to say what their shapes should be.’

    The third sort of specialist is a person who can explain anything, no matter how complicated, to the satisfaction of most people, no matter how stupid or pigheaded they may be.”

    I feel overwhelmingly inspired to be that third specialist with images that people resonate with. However, we are missing the second specialist as so many voices want so much attention these days online and it’s difficult to get attention, however I hope that there will be various well connected second specialists as time goes on.

    Many people complain about many things outside of the Original Trilogy. I think there is a very special energy around the Original Trilogy and everything after has not resonated anywhere near as strongly with people. I mean, the whole Midichlorian concept for explaining the Force in Episode 1 (from 1999) was the beginning of the end for many people.

    Visually, I am very impressed with the young Luke in the 6th (and 7th?) episode of The Book of Boba Fett. He looks fresh out of the end of Return of the Jedi and is meditating with Grogu (the Yoda like creature most people seem to love) and also practicing using the Force. However I don’t expect that we will ever get any kind of continuation rewrite of Luke’s journey from Toroid to Infinity. Mark Hamill himself is devastated by the treatment of his character outside of the Original Trilogy.

    I have been corresponding with the authors over the last year but they are incommunicado right now as they live in one of the worst flood affected areas of Australia and the rain is still coming down there very heavily. The flood images currently coming from that area are beyond belief.

    The authors believe that in the coming decades, the Western World will predominantly shift through to Circle Terrain which is essential really if we are to survive as a species. My main motivation is help promote this light at the end of the tunnel and introduce people to this map, this tool and this language.

    Can you recommend anyone else that might be interested that I could send my video to?
