Re: the Rice Archives, do I think as the short blurb states, that “psychical and paranormal phenomena are an unacknowledged and unassimilated Other of modern thought, the still unrealized future of theory, the fleeting signs of a consciousness not yet become a culture”? I can agree with that.
I am familiar with more than a few of the names on their list, among them Integralist Stuart Davis. Another integralist (not on the list) that is doing work in this area is Sean Hargens. If you’re not already familiar with his work in anomalous phenomena, you can check out this link: https://www.exostudies.org. He offers some courses that use a “complex integral realism” approach to “what is real.” One of his main present interests, I believe, is ufology, but that’s not his sole subject matter.
I don’t know if this is exactly what you’re asking about, but in terms of how the quadrants relate to the subtle, KW has talked about this, and draws from Eastern traditions/philosophies that speak of the three main states of consciousness: waking, dreaming, and deep dreamless sleep. These are natural states which everyone of course experiences. The waking state is called the “gross” state, the dreaming state is called the “subtle” and the deep dreamless sleep state is called the “causal” (or the 'very subtle). And of course, the subtle state is not limited to dreaming-while-asleep, as you already of course know, and the causal is not limited to deep dreamless sleep but is accessed through meditation and other forms of spiritual practice or even spontaneously as well. Correlated with the waking state for most people is the ego; correlated with the subtle state is soul, correlated with the deep dreamless sleep state Wilber has alternately called spirit and higher self.
So anyway…according to Eastern traditions, each of these states–gross, subtle, causal-- has a body, a body that has both mass and energy. I support this view. The gross state has a physical body, the subtle state a subtle body, the causal state a causal body. The interior subtle-state experience would be UL quadrant, and the body connected to that state is UR quadrant, observable and/or behavioral (think for instance of such things as auras even, that some can see).
As for LL quadrant, I think of groups that, in integral terms, become a higher consciousness (such as subtle state or even causal or beyond) “we-space” through meditating together or such. My reference earlier to the shamanic work with a mental health clinic in which each person’s individual journey content, while different from everyone else’s, had at its core the same “insight” or awareness as everyone else had–we are one–is an example of a higher consciousness we-space. I have experienced this kind of phenomena again and again in groups. Ancient practices of people dreaming together (in sleep states) is another example.
As for the LR and how the subtle state shows up there, thoughts are subtle experiences, as are imaginings, fantasies, unconscious material in the background of consciousness or that is buried and comes alive in the form of shadow, etc. So some of that interaction in Zone 7 undoubtedly has some subtle-state influences in it, and not all of it “negative,” of course. The doctrine of Manifest Destiny undergirding the Western expansion of the colonists in the US was supposedly based on a religious revelation (a subtle experience) that became a cultural mindset. The Iroquoian Confederacy’s Great Law of Peace which influenced the US Constitution was supposedly based upon the subtle visions of those tribes. And there’s been more than one politician or doctor or scientist who has made breakthroughs through dreams or consulting a psychic (or having their own psychic experience) and such, their subtle experiences influencing entire systems in the LR quadrant. I’m not sure this is a good enough or direct enough answer about the LR quadrant and the subtle, but maybe it will stimulate your thinking?
Forgive me Michelle if I’ve repeated a lot of material you are already familiar with, and if this post seems a bit disorganized. I got interrupted with a call, and lost my train of thought temporarily. I know there’s something else I wanted to say, but do not remember at the moment what it was.
