Philosophy* (Suggestions and resources)

The Republic by Plato (distinction between essence/truth [real/unchanging] and appearance/opinion [unreal/changing], mistaken by Dr. Hawkins because calibrations may change, thus representing opinion rather than Truth. This distinction is found in a number of sources, including ACIM, Advaita, Buddhism, etc., and is indeed part-and-parcel of the perennial philosophy and represents the original spiritual, though misused by Hawkins, meaning of discernment or discrimination. On this view, the entire world — including muscle testing and the map of consciousness — are relative, temporary, changing, impermanent, or — indeed — false or illusory. The Truth is one, Absolute, experiential, and unchanging, not many, absolutist, conceptual, and changing. This is the most basic spiritual idea, which Hawkins distorted with muscle testing for ostensibly absolute truths.)

Meditations on First Philosophy by Descartes (epistemology or theory of knowledge: what grounds Dr. Hawkins’ truth claims?)

An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding by David Hume (causation or causality is a concept imposed on the observation of constant conjunction, 250 years prior to Dr. Hawkins’ work — not to mention the Buddhist notion of dependent origination, 2,500 years prior to Hawkins’ work, which possibly influenced Hume)
