И ведь помнила я, что где-то про нее читала.
Но где, что - никак не вспомнить.
Ну, вот и нашла (правда, собственный перевод).
А вот и оригинал:
There is a relationship between what we think is out there in the world and what we experience as being out there. There is a way in which the energy of thought and the energy of matter modify each other and interrelate. A kind of rough mirroring takes place between our mind and our reality.
We cannot stand outside this mirroring process and examine it, though, for we ARE the process, to an unknowable extent. Any technique we might use to 'look objectively' at our reality becomes a part of the event in question. We are an indeterminately large part of the function that shapes the reality from which we do our looking. Our looking enters as one of the determinants in the reality event that we see.
...The procedure of mirroring must be considered the only fixed element, while the products of the procedure must be considered relative. ...We represent the world to ourselves and respond to our representations. ...A change of world view can change the world viewed.
Metanoia is the Greek word for conversion: a 'fundamental transformation of mind." It is the process by which concepts are reorganized. ...The same procedure can be found in world view development [and] can be traced in the question-answer process, or the proposing and eventual filling of an "empty category" in science. The asking of an ultimately serious question, which means to be seized in turn by an ultimately serious quest, reshapes our concepts in favor of the kinds of perceptions needed to "see " the answer. ...A question determines and brings about its answer just as the desired end shapes the nature of the kind of question asked.
Exploring this reality function shows how and why we reap as we sow, individually and collectively - but no simple one-to-one correspondence is implied. The success or failure of any idea is subject to an enormous web of contingencies. [The Crack in the Cosmic Egg, Pearce, 1971]
А искала я это в связи с книгой Джеда МакКенны (Jed McKenna) Spiritual Enlightenment (The Damnedest Thing), которая привела меня в ярость и заставила заново задуматься о всяких интересных вещах. Книжку очень рекомендую.
