[++Environment as Spiritual Capital.++]

[+An Argument for Restoring Vilnius's Oldest Jewish Cemetery+]

I wish to support the restoration of Vilnius's oldest Jewish cemetery as a symbol of empathy for Lithuania's Jews, the Litvaks, whom we lost to the Holocaust. In order to discuss the surprising obstacles, and how to overcome them, I will develop the concept of spiritual capital. First, in various ways I will distinguish spiritual capital and material capital. Then, I will discuss particular examples from Lithuania to consider what we need to know to make decisions about spiritual capital, how to recognize, measure, accumulate and utilize it.

Attach:SC-MaterialAndSpiritualCapital.png

Capital is the inherent value in the accumulation of resources. For example, suppose that 1,000 Latvians each have 1,000 euros. Now suppose that they all lend that money to a single entity which now has 1,000,000 euros at its disposal. Then that entity can undertake many ventures, good or bad, which were previously impossible, such as build an apartment complex. That is material capital. And it is material to the extent that a single entity must control it all, as if it was wealth that had to be safeguarded in a certain place.

Now suppose that 1,000 Latvians don't hand over their money to a single entity, but instead they share a vision. Suppose that they act independently, based on their own best judgement, but that overall, their wishes, values, actions and resources are in harmony. Then as a distributed network of independent agents they may be even more productive, for good or for bad. That is spiritual capital. Such a symphony of aspirations is evident in a cemetery which spans centuries.

Spiritual capital is every miracle which become possible with freedom. An ecosystem arises only when each individual cares of its own accord. Money is an external motivator and so it can't get people to personally care. Money, as a single, unambiguous, explicit, external dimension cannot of itself generate the ambiguous, implicit and multi-dimensional solutions which may take the form of synergies, relationships, alliances, agreements and even contracts.

Capital takes on forms that we can invest ourselves in. Market pressures express investments in the form of material capital, such as an apartment complex, which can be converted into money.

We as people link our personal values with tangible forms of spiritual capital that we can rally around. They include the public spaces where meetings were held during our Independence movements, or entire neighborhoods, such as our old towns, or even our homelands, our countries. Such spaces take decades or centuries for us to grow attached to. In Lithuania, examples include the Hill of Crosses, the Royal Palace, and the Curonian Spit. A crucial point is that spiritual capital has value even when it is taken away from us, profaned or obliterated, or when we are forced to leave it, because it persists in our hearts regardless, brings and holds us together, and ever sustains us. The Soviets bulldozed the Hill of Crosses but we kept erecting crosses. The Muscovites destroyed our Royal Palace in the 1650s but we recently rebuilt it. Of course, when spiritual capital is made tangible, then we can better appreciate it. The Royal Palace lets us see that the Renaissance was part of the history of Lithuania. Should we restore Vilnius's oldest Jewish cemetery, then we would better appreciate our Litvak community.

Attach:SC-Terminology.png

In business, there are terms which refer to spiritual capital but only in terms of money. Natural resources considers living things not in their own right, but only in terms of their utility to people, and only if that can be monetized. Human capital turns people into money; social capital - relationships; corporate social responsibility - citizenship; and brand equity - customers. Indeed, classical economics supposes that everything could and should be valued in terms of money.

The term "Spiritual Capital" is I think best developed by business consultants Zohar and Marshall who wrote a book about it in 2004. They teach that we need to foster spiritual intelligence for a spiritual culture that appreciates the nature of spiritual capital. I like their principles of spiritual intelligence, which basically involve awareness of ourselves, of the big picture, and how we fit together. I think of that as considering our relationship with God as the spirit of the big picture. The theologian Baker describes spiritual capital as a community's potential for prosperity upon appreciating God as the source of life and our relationship as one of stewardship.

Attach:SC-Conscious-Unconscious.png

Material culture and spiritual culture are grounded in the two minds which experimental psychologists Kahneman and Tversky spoke of as System 1 and System 2. A material culture of utility is based on our associative mind, System 1, which intuitively, unconsciously knows the answers. Spiritual culture leads us beyond the world of utility. It is based on our disassociative mind, System 2, which rationally, consciously does not know, but asks questions.

When our unconscious, associative mind takes the lead, then we relate to things by having them, using them, controling them, and so we are inevitably motivated by fear, greed, power and ego, as Zohar and Marshall warn. When our conscious, disassociative takes the lead, then we let go of things, and let go of ourselves. We may let go of our needs by taking up the needs of another. Or we may at times simply be perfect and have no needs whatsoever.

We consider a model where one's conscious mind invests in one's unconscious mind, which then later supports one's conscious mind. We may think of our unconscious minds as interlinked in a vast network which our conscious minds work to shape but must also work to resist. We can then think of "spiritual capital" as our investment in that cultural network and "spiritual economics" as describing our interactions with that network.

The goal of a spiritual culture is to have our heart in the right place so that we live in terms of letting go and asking questions rather than controling things and having answers.

Attach:SC-Math.png

In mathematics, we can show that our ability to let go of information is what distinguishes the mindset of the chooser from the mindset of the chosen. In the framework of the chooser, we keep track of what we choose but not what we don't choose. Consequently, the various things we don't choose are indistinguishable. This leads to an asymmetry between what we choose and what we don't. This is the subjective mindset of spiritual culture, where we let go of the many things we don't care about, and so we care about the few things we do. Spirituality is thus defined by what is immaterial, by what we don't care about.

However, in the framework of the chosen, every choice is between this or that. Both options are always significant, always material. And so there is a symmetry between choosing this or choosing that. This is the objective mindset of material culture, which keeps track of everything, and makes expectations about everything.

The upshot is that material culture forces us to choose between this or that. Spiritual culture lets us choose or not, so that when we do choose, we truly do care. Some things may have no utility and others may be useful for themselves. Whereas in material culture everything is explicitly framed in terms of utility, how it is useful for something else.

Attach:SC-Expectations.png

Our emotional life is based on our expectations. We are happy or excited when our expectations are met, and we are sad or surprised when they are not. We are in suspense when we are waiting for our expectations to be met or not. And we become anxious when we expect what we don't wish for, which then leads to feelings of hate, anger, relief and depression. Whereas we feel love when hate is impossible because we don't expect what we don't wish for. We are at peace when we don't have any expectations whatsoever.

This leads to two very different strategies of life. Classical economics is based on maximizing happiness whereas spiritual economics is based on minimizing anxiety, thus feeling love and peace. Classical economics is driven by our unconscious mind, which seeks to have everything, makes expectations about everything, and makes us live in the external world, trapped in all manner of duties. This increases the likelihood that we will expect what we don't wish for. Spiritual economics is driven by our conscious mind, which seeks to let go of everything and do without. It has us internalize our duties so that we choose the ones that we will actually care about.

Our emotional life is the way that our unconscious speaks to our conscious. In a spiritual culture, the conscious trains the unconscious to focus what it cares about on some deepest value which includes all of the other values. This deepest value will bring to light the questions which show where the unconscious mind's answers fall short. And these questions will further heighten the conscious mind. This leads to a spiritual culture that acknowledges our shortcomings and therefore allows us to learn forever, grow forever, live forever, here and now.

Attach:SC-MinimizeMaximize.png

Maximizing happiness and minimizing anxiety have a similar calculus and so they yield similar solutions to questions such as where to eat lunch. But these two strategies differ in regards to both the smallest matters and the biggest matters in life. This is because minimizing anxiety constrains our expectations but maximizing happiness does not. Maximizing happiness has us fight over the smallest advantages, such as being first in line. Minimizing anxiety gives way to others. Maximizing happiness also has the competitive market decide for us the big questions in life, such as what work we will do, what family we will have, and where we will live. Minimizing anxiety has us ignore the world in making our biggest decisions. The end result is that maximizing happiness yields an economy based on the external motivation of our expectations about the world, whereas minimizing anxiety yields an economy based on our internal motivations, what each of us personally cares about.

Material culture maximizes happiness - lives life through the filter of expectations - and thus imposes a single mode of competition upon all of life. Spiritual culture is like nature in that it minimizes anxiety by minimizing expectations, yielding the following three distinct modes:

* First of all, nature is very tolerant of variation. A genetic flaw which increases the chance of mortality by 10% may yet propagate across ten generations.
* Second, nature consists of many niches, and so competition among species is for dominance within various niches, but generally does not lead to extinction.
* Third, nature tends towards an integrated unity, so that any species which disrupts the whole will suffer a backlash.

Attach:SC-RoyalPalace.png

The Royal Palace illustrates for us the dynamics of spiritual capital. It was built at the foot of the castle hill in Vilnius, which is at the confluence of two rivers. This prime location makes it a natural center among different regions, like a swirling eddy. It allows for a web of interactions, but it also invites cataclysms. The unexpected cycle of destruction and reconstruction reflects God's greater perspective and proves that the spiritual capital persists, regardless, in its ability to inspire us, and awaits the opportunity to become manifestly tangible.

That inspiration typically grows in the bosom of an isolated dreamer, like the architect Napoleonas Kitkauskas, who led the archeological study of the foundations of the palace, which became possible with the Gorbachev era. It also became legal to support such activity with financial contributions, to organize volunteers, and to get help from businesses. This endeavor was a symbol of Lithuania being free to care for its legendary heritage. In 1994, it was officially entrusted to the Ministry of Culture, and an architectural contest was held to make public the possibilities for the site. The financial crisis of 1997 saw the team work 17 months without wages. An encroachment by developers on a nearby city square, however, inspired a wider group of organizers and champions who reached out to the public through the Association "Pilis". In 1999, the Ministry of Culture's Commission concluded that the best way to preserve the foundations was to restore the Royal Palace. Indeed, the atmospheric threats to the foundations encouraged action. "Pilis" set up a Pavilion - the Gateway to the Palace - and organized cultural events at the site. In 2000, the World Lithuanian Community endorsed the restoration and the Parliament enacted this goal into law. A change in government led one party to challenge the project on financial grounds, but supporters rebuffed this, and construction ensued, so that the two sections of the Royal Castle opened in 2009 and in 2018. This progression shows how the restoration won an ever wider base of support. This pyramid of support, managing to integrate ever smaller but more numerous contributions, captures the value of the spiritual capital.

Parallel to the divine swings in fortune was the very healthy dialogue amongst those for and against. Intellectuals were generally critical. They derided the restoration as inauthentic, and they wanted the money to go to other projects that looked to the future rather than the past. However, supporters appealed to the historical beauty of the Royal Palace and its value as a national symbol. A compelling argument was mathematical - money for the Royal Palace would not take away from other projects, but rather, if money could be found for the Royal Palace, then it could be found for other projects as well. In general, such dialogues clarify material convenience and spiritual transcendence.

Attach:SC-ComparingSpiritualCapital.png

The fact that the Royal Palace was rebuilt suggests that Vilnius's oldest Jewish cemetery could be as well. The Soviets desecrated the cemetery by building a Sports Palace on top of it. In 2005, a developer planned to replace the building with a giant new development. This was thwarted when the Heritage Registry deemed the Sports Palace an important example of Soviet Lithuanian architecture, as well as the historic site of the Reform Movement's Congress in 1988. The city of Vilnius then purchased the property with plans to restore it with European Union funds as a convention center. However, charges of corruption have twice delayed the project.

Devout Lithuanian Jews and their supporters find it insensitive and hurtful that Lithuanians today would affirm the Soviet profanity and invite Europeans to make light of the Jewish fate. From the point of view of spiritual capital, it seems obvious that private and public developers will enshrine centuries of bad will. Clearly money would be saved by building a new convention center elsewhere. Why aren't Lithuanians taking the opportunity to show good will?

Attach:SC-DividedCommunities.png

Why do Lithuania's self-described patriots treasure Soviet heritage over Jewish heritage? This is the perverse result of how longstanding divisions in Lithuanian society have been patched over. Soviet Lithuanian architects are reinterpreted as the leaders of an anti-Soviet cultural resistance. Official Jewish community leaders accept some tokens of respect for which they agree to sanction the development project.

Attach:SC-TruthFalsehood.png

The root of the problem is that in 1941, Lithuanians and their leaders abused Lithuanian Jews, after having themselves been abused by Nazis and Soviets. Indeed, Lithuanian hero Kazys Škirpa concocted two persistent, injurious myths, that it was Jews who abused Lithuanians, and that Lithuanians retaliated. By this logic, Lithuanian Jews can expect no empathy from Lithuanians, who suffered, too.

The key problem is a lack of dialogue. In Brezhnev's day, enthusiasts could not write about the Royal Palace because the topic was deemed nationalistic. Similarly, today, there are many truths that the Lithuania's press does not dare publish about Lithuanian accountability for the Holocaust. But it welcomes patriotic attacks on Jews and their supporters, as if they were Putin's agents. Such attacks are made by Lithuania's Genocide Center; by the Defense Correspondent Vaidas Saldžiūnas of the leading Internet portal's information war section; by the Democratic Studies Center's Director Vidmantas Valiušaitis, funded by the children of criminals against humanity who ended up in America; by the Union of Lithuanian Freedom Fighters, which derives itself from genocidal Nazi collaborators; and by the patriotic Catholic youth portal Pro Patria, which thrives on divisive crusade.

Attach:SC-SpiritualPyramid.png

What is needed is thirty years of Litvak and Lithuanian dialogue, locally, nationally and globally. This depends on more divine intervention to stall development plans for the Sports Palace. As with the Royal Palace, there needs to be a growing pyramid of supporters. Shnayer Leiman is the professor with the knowledge and devotion to reconstruct the cemetery. Dovid Katz is the organizer who leads a chorus of international opposition. But now we need a crosscultural association of enthusiasts to reach out to the public with activities, as Julius Norvila has with his art projects. Such true fans are the distingushing levels of the spiritual pyramid, for they generate internal variety and dialogue, which material economics tries to cut out as unnecessary. As the issue becomes known, the spiritual pyramid expands to include those who can contribute 100 hours of support, or perhaps 10 hours, or perhaps just an hour. The manifest value of the spiritual capital is its ability to include those who care just a little, perhaps enough to buy a box of chocolates. In the case of the Royal Palace, some 500,000 boxes of Ruta chocolates were sold, contributing 1 litas each to the effort.

Spiritual capital can thus be measured in terms of its creative value, given by the organizers in its middle levels, and also in terms of its manifest value, given by its widest base, all those who respond. These values can be measured approximately by the hours contributed.

I conclude by summarizing the value of spiritual capital. It accumulates what we are willing to give up, what we are willing to sacrifice. It shows that we care - and you can't pay u to care. It is a shared purpose that integrates our different values. It helps us accept the truth. It facilitates our alignment but also lets us include others. It creates a supportive microcosm, which is not "self-organized", but rather gives us the freedom to organize. It is a place of peace which lets us sense our emotions, share them and amplify them. It lets us be triggered at different levels of commitment. It is a rallying space in case of emergency, which persists even if it is destroyed, and may yet rise again. It is we.

I conclude by summarizing the value of spiritual capital.

* Unity based on existing political reality - not a more inclusive perspective that would appreciate the worldwide Litvak community.

Leveraging spiritual capital
* Available in case of emergency.

* Means of measuring - what people would give up - can't pay people to care
.

* Material capital is the expression of involuntary unity as an investment based on duty to external interests
. Spiritual capital is the expression of voluntary unity as an investment based on integrating caring about internal interests.


* external trust - supporting one another - vs. shared internal value supporting a shared purpose


* Levels of power - the importance of the middle levels - not just a central power and the masses

Leveraging spiritual capital
* Creates a supportive microcosm - freedom to organize (as opposed to "self-organized" gamemaster vs. game players)

Value of spiritual capital
* accepts and relates people with different values
** right place - no anxiety - peace
** inner space lets us focus on our inner emotions - spatial boundary - share beauty, intimacy, love
** an environment of peace - accepting of our inner wills - where everything is in its right place - supports ambiguity
** lets us sense emotions - share them - and amplify them
** keeps our heart in the right place - allows us to share our heart
** bring people together
** create multidimensional relationships
* allows people to be triggered at different levels
** (unconscious) memory triggers - makes alignment easy
** lets include and organize people on many levels - a gradient of unconscious vs
. conscious

Measuring of spiritual capital
* Manifest value: How broadly it lets us include others.

[Measurement 1: Challenges to dialogue - historic falsehood - lack of constructive dialogue]


Lack of spiritual capital - the lack of dialogue

the challenges:
* to recognize that the Jewish calamity is incomparably more tragic than the Lithuanian one
* to comprehend that widespread Lithuanian beliefs are anti-semitic propaganda which Lithuanians themselves concocted before the Nazi invasion - that the Jews oppressed Lithuanians during the Soviet occupation, and that Lithuanians exacted revenge on them.

Lukiskiu square

Measurement
* Potential value: How much it challenges us to question the sufficiency of our deepest value.
Challenges of spiritual capital
* things tend towards superficial resolution. - Have to integrate different people and interests in a nonsuperficial way
* Can be manipulated and abused - example of Lenin - example of LLKS
* Get rid of negative - lack of constructive positive
* Can take centuries to accumulate aura

[Solution: Pyramid of investment]

* A pyramid for fostering spiritual capital
* Investment in pyramid
* We can see these consider the three modes in terms of dialogue. A spectrum from diversity to unity.
* In the meanwhile, depend on God's good fortune.

Solution
* Further develop Litvak and Lithuanian alliance of independents.
* Noninterest of banks.
* Build on example of Royal Palace.
* Reference other projects -
* Link with local residents.
*
* Jewish Information Center
* Union of Nations of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania


----------------------

We develop a concept of "spiritual capital" which has suggested itself in the public debate regarding the future of the Vilnius Sports Palace, a large forum which the Soviets built in the 1960s on a Jewish cemetery which is the oldest in Vilnius and perhaps all of the Baltic states. This concept of spiritual capital is relevant for analyzing cultural surroundings but could also perhaps ground a healthy human relationship with natural surroundings.

The Sports Palace is no longer safe for use, and so there is an opportunity to dismantle it, and restore the cemetery, perhaps as a symbol of empathy for the loss to the Holocaust of Lithuania's world renowned Litvak community. Instead, the city is preparing to use European Union funds to renovate the Sports Palace for use as a convention center. The city is satisfied to have won the approval of the official Lithuanian Jewish community, and is not concerned by the disrespect felt by many Litvaks in Lithuania and around the world.

The actions of the city and economic developers are understandable from the point of view of typical economic thinking. In order to explain the value of restoring the cemetery, there is a need to appeal to the reality of additional dimensions. An example in Lithuania is the Hill of Crosses, which the Soviets kept bulldozing but Lithuanians kept restoring. It is a holy site which Pope John Paul II visited in 1993. Now consider the value of such a site. It is a real challenge to intentionally create such a site. And it typically takes decades or centuries. But it can offer longstanding benefits as a reference point that has a rich meaning for a wide variety of people. We sense that tangibly - we may say that it has a very strong aura, It also offers vast potential for leveraging its meaning in developing ever new symbols. For all of these reasons we may think of it as "spiritual capital" that we might invest in to develop and exploit. Such a concept makes clear that dismantling the Sports Palace can, from the point of view of "spiritual economics", yield a huge reward if Lithuania can understand itself as a country which mourns Jews, loves Jews and welcomes Jews. Alternatively, Lithuania could claim the Soviet atrocity as its own, and identify itself with Soviet heritage rather than Jewish heritage.

We develop these notions of "spiritual capital" and "spiritual economics" from a conceptual and even metaphysical point of view. The human mind may be described in terms of interactions between the unconscious (which tells us what we know) and the conscious (which tells us what we don't know). Experimental psychologists Kahneman and Tversky referred to these as System 1 and System 2. We consider a model where one's conscious mind invests in one's unconscious mind, which then later supports one's conscious mind. We may think of our unconscious minds as interlinked in a vast network which our conscious minds work to shape but must also work to resist. We can then think of "spiritual capital" as our investment in that cultural network and "spiritual economics" as describing our interactions with that network. In this way, we can consider our relationship with our cultural surroundings. We then consider what this means for our natural surroundings. In what sense does nature have spiritual capital? How do we interact with that and foster that?

[Poster]

What is needed is thirty years of Litvak and Lithuanian dialogue, locally, nationally and globally. This depends on more divine intervention to stall development plans for the Sports Palace. As with the Royal Palace, there needs to be a growing pyramid of supporters. Shnayer Leiman is the professor with the knowledge and devotion to reconstruct the cemetery. Dovid Katz is the organizer who leads a chorus of international opposition. But now we need a crosscultural association of enthusiasts to reach out to the public with activities, as Julius Norvila has with his art projects.

The key problem is a lack of dialogue in Lithuania's press, which favors patriotic attacks on Jews and their supporters, as if they were Putin's agents. Such attacks are made by Lithuania's Genocide Center; by the Defense Correspondent Vaidas Saldžiūnas of the leading Internet portal's information war section; by the Democratic Studies Center's Director Vidmantas Valiušaitis, funded by the children of criminals against humanity who ended up in America; by the Union of Lithuanian Freedom Fighters, which derives itself from genocidal Nazi collaborators; and by the patriotic Catholic youth portal Pro Patria, which thrives on divisive crusade.

The key problem is a lack of dialogue. In Brezhnev's day, enthusiasts could not write about the Royal Palace because the topic was deemed nationalistic. Similarly, today, there are many truths that the Lithuania's press does not dare publish about Lithuanian accountability for the Holocaust. But it welcomes patriotic attacks on Jews and their supporters, as if they were Putin's agents. Such attacks are made by Lithuania's Genocide Center; by the Defense Correspondent Vaidas Saldžiūnas of the leading Internet portal's information war section; by the Democratic Studies Center's Director Vidmantas Valiušaitis, funded by the children of criminals against humanity who ended up in America; by the Union of Lithuanian Freedom Fighters, which derives itself from genocidal Nazi collaborators; and by the patriotic Catholic youth portal Pro Patria, which thrives on divisive crusade.

Devout Lithuanian Jews and their supporters find it insensitive and hurtful that Lithuanians today would affirm the Soviet profanity and invite Europeans to make light of the Jewish fate. From the poin of view of spiritual capital, it seems obvious that private and public developers will enshrine centuries of bad will. Clearly money would be saved by building a new convention center elsewhere. Why aren't Lithuanians taking the opportunity to show good will?

į:
Why do Lithuania's self-described patriots treasure Soviet heritage over Jewish heritage? This is the perverse result of how longstanding divisions in Lithuanian society have been patched over. Soviet Lithuanian architects are reinterpreted as the leaders of an anti-Soviet cultural resistance. Official Jewish community leaders accept some tokens of respect for which they agree to sanction the development project.

Attach:SC-TruthFalsehood.png

The root of the problem is that in 1941, Lithuanians and their leaders abused Lithuanian Jews, after having themselves been abused by Nazis and Soviets. Indeed, Lithuanian hero Kazys Škirpa concocted two persistent, injurious myths, that it was Jews who abused Lithuanians, and that Lithuanians retaliated. By this logic, Lithuanian Jews can expect no empathy from Lithuanians, who suffered, too.

The fact that the Royal Palace was rebuilt suggests that Vilnius's oldest Jewish cemetery could be as well. The Soviets desecrated the site by building a Sports Palace on top of it. In 2005, a developer planned to replace the building with a giant new development. This was thwarted when the Heritage Registry deemed the Sports Palace an important example of Soviet Lithuanian architecture, as well as the historic site of the Reform Movement's Congress in 1988. The city of Vilnius then purchased the property with plans to restore it with European Union funds as a convention center. However, charges of corruption have twice delayed the project.

Parallel to the divine swings of fortune was the very healthy dialogue amongst those for and against. Intellectuals were generally critical. They derided the restoration as inauthentic, and they wanted the money to go to other projects that looked to the future rather than the past. However, supporters appealed to the historical beauty of the Royal Palace and its value as a national symbol. A compelling argument was mathematical - money for the Royal Palace would not take away from other projects, but rather, if money could be found for the Royal Palace, then it could be found for other projects as well.

That inspiration typically grows in the bosom of an isolated dreamer, like the architect Napoleonas Kitkauskas, who led the archeological study of the foundations of the palace, which became possible with the Gorbachev era. It also became legal to support such activity with financial contributions, to organize volunteers, and to get help from businesses. This endeavor was a symbol of Lithuania being free to care for its legendary heritage. In 1994, it was officially entrusted to the Ministry of Culture, and an architectural contest was held to make public the possibilities for the site. The financial crisis of 1997 saw the team work 17 months without wages. An encroachment by developers on a nearby city square, however, inspired a wider group of organizers and champions who reached out to the public through the Association "Pilis". In 1999, the Ministry of Culture's Commission concluded that the best way to preserve the foundations was to restore the Royal Palace. Indeed, the atmospheric threats to the foundations encouraged action. "Pilis" set up a Pavilion - the Gateway to the Palace - and organized cultural events at the site. In 2000, the World Lithuanian Community endorsed the restoration and the Parliament enacted this goal into law. A change in government led one party to challenge the project on financial grounds, but supporters rebuffed this, and construction ensued, so that the two sections of the Royal Castle opened in 2009 and in 2018.

Material culture maximizes happiness - lives life through the filter of expectations - and thus imposes a single mode of competition upon all of life. Spiritual culture is like nature in that it minimizes anxiety by minimizing expectations, yielding the following three distinct modes:

* First of all, nature is very tolerant of variation. A genetic flaw which increases the chance of mortality by 10% may yet propagate across ten generations.
* Second, nature consists
of many niches, and so competition among species is for dominance within various niches, but generally does not lead to extinction.
* Third, nature tends towards an integrated unity, so that any species which disrupts the whole will suffer a backlash

Our emotional life is the way that our unconscious speaks to our conscious. In a spiritual culture, the conscious trains the unconscious to focus what it cares about on some deepest value which includes all of the other values. This deepest value will bring to light the questions which show where it falls short. And these questions will further heighten the conscious mind. This leads to a spiritual culture that acknowledges our shortcomings and therefore allows us to learn forever, grow forever, live forever, here and now.

į:
Maximizing happiness and minimizing anxiety have a similar calculus and so they yield similar solutions to questions such as where to eat lunch. But these two strategies differ in regards to both the smallest matters and the biggest matters in life. This is because minimizing anxiety constrains our expectations but maximizing happiness does not. Maximizing happiness has us fight over the smallest advantages, such as being first in line. Minimizing anxiety gives way to others. Maximizing happiness also has the competitive market decide for us the big questions in life, such as what work we will do, what family we will have, and where we will live. Minimizing anxiety has us ignore the world in making our biggest decisions. The end result is that maximizing happiness yields an economy based on the external motivation of our expectations about the world, whereas minimizing anxiety yields an economy based on our internal motivations, what each of us personally cares about.

Our emotional life is the way that our unconscious speaks to our conscious. In a spiritual culture, the conscious trains the unconscious to focus what it cares about on some deepest value which includes all of the other values. This deepest value will bring to light the questions which show where it falls short. And these questions will further heighten the conscious mind. This leads to a spiritual culture that acknowledges our shortcomings and therefore allows us to learn forever, grow forever, liver forever, here and now.

This leads to two very different strategies of life. Classical economics is based on maximizing happiness whereas spiritual economics is based on minimizing anxiety, thus feeling love and peace. Classical economics is driven by our unconscious mind, which seeks to have everything, makes expectations about everything, and makes us live in the external world, trapped in all manner of duties. Spiritual economics is driven by our conscious mind, which seeks to let go of everything and do without. It has us internalize our duties so that we choose the ones that we will actually care about.

Our emotional life is based on our expectations. We are happy or excited when our expectations are met, and we are sad or surprised when they are not. We are in suspense when we are waiting for our expectations to be met or not. And we become anxious when we expect what we don't wish for, which then leads to feelings of hate, anger, relief and depression. Whereas we feel love when hate is impossible because we don't expect what we don't wish for. And we are at peace when we don't have any expectations whatsoever.

In mathematics, we can show that our ability to let go of information is what distinguishes the mindset of the chooser from the mindset of the chosen. In the framework of the chooser, we keep track of what we choose but not what we don't choose. Consequently, the various things we don't choose are indistinguishable. This leads to an asymmetry between what we choose and what we don't. This is the subjective mindset of spiritual culture, where we let go of the many things we don't wish for, and so we care about the few things we do wish for. Spirituality is thus defined by what is immaterial, by what we don't wish for.

In mathematics, as well as in every day life, we can frame a choice in two very different mindsets, which reflect the differing experiences of the subjective chooser and the objective chosen. From the chooser's point of view, and of the chooser. In the mindset of that which is chosen, we are ever choosing between this or that. Such choices are symmetric in that we can interchange all of this and all of that. However, the chooser is This is the point of view of the chosen, which is to say, the material world. But subtle distinction between the chooser and the chosen. Indeed, in every day life we know that we which we know from every day life. Indeed, in every day life, We can distinguish the mathematics of the chosen and the mathematics of the chooser. In the spiritual mathematics of the chooser, which is spiritual, we only keep track of what is chosen

From the material point of view, we can choose this or we can
choose that, but both choices are material. Thus choice is by nature symmetric. But from the spiritual point of view, what we choose is material, but what we don't choose is immaterial. Thus choice is asymmetric.

The subtle point is that we expect is distinguishable, what we don't expect is distinguishable, what we wish for is distinguishable, but what we don't wish for is all indistinguishable. Spirituality is defined by what is immaterial, by what we don't wish for.

(the chooser vs. the chosen)

What are we interested in? For our own sake - wishes. Then we don't care about not-wishes. For others's sake - expectations. Then we care about both what satisfies our expectations and what doesn't.

Distinction: Investing in (internal) wishes or (external) expectations? Materialist, "objective", singleminded thinking insists they are the same. Spiritual, "subjective", ambiguous thinking appreciates that they are Very different models philosophically and mathematically

every choice is between this or that. Both options are always significant, always material. And so there is a symmetry between choosing this or choosing that. This is the objective mindset of material culture, which keeps track of everything, and makes expectations about everything.

The upshot is that material culture forces us to
choose between this or that. Spiritual culture lets us choose or not. And so when we do choose, we truly do care.

Spiritual capital always has us consider dimensions that lead us beyond the world of utility. Within ourselves we can distinguish two minds which experimental psychologists Kahneman and Tversky spoke of as System 1 and System 2. A material culture of utility is based on our associative mind, System 1, which intuitively, unconsciously knows the answers. Spiritual culture is based on our disassociative mind, System 2, which rationally, consciously does not know, but asks the questions.

Material culture and spiritual culture are grounded in the the two minds which experimental psychologists Kahneman and Tversky spoke of as System 1 and System 2. A material culture of utility is based on our associative mind, System 1, which intuitively, unconsciously knows the answers. Spiritual culture leads us beyond the world of utility. It is based on our disassociative mind, System 2, which rationally, consciously does not know, but asks questions.

When our unconscious, associative mind takes the lead, then we relate to things by having them, using them, controling them, and so we are inevitably motivated by fear, greed, power and ego, as Zohar and Marshall warn. When our conscious, disassociative takes the lead, then we let go of things, and let go of ourselves. We may let go of our needs by taking up the needs of another. Or we may at times simply be perfect and have no needs whatsoever.

Experimental psychologists Kahneman and Tversky referred to these as System 1 and System 2
. We consider a model where one's conscious mind invests in one's unconscious mind, which then later supports one's conscious mind. We may think of our unconscious minds as interlinked in a vast network which our conscious minds work to shape but must also work to resist. We can then think of "spiritual capital" as our investment in that cultural network and "spiritual economics" as describing our interactions with that network.

Money is an external motivator and so it can't get people to personally care.

The term "Spiritual Capital" is I think best developed by business consultants Zohar and Marshall who wrote a book about it in 2004. They teach that we need to foster spiritual intelligence for a spiritual culture that appreciates the nature of spiritual capital. I like their principles of spiritual intelligence, which basically involve awareness of ourselves, of the big picture, and how we fit together. I think of that as considering our relationship with God as the spirit of the big picture.

We as people link our personal values with tangible forms of spiritual capital that we can rally around. They include the public spaces where meetings were held during our Independence movements, or entire neighborhoods, such as our old towns, or even our homelands, our countries. Such spaces take decades or centuries for us to grow attached to. In Lithuania, examples include the Hill of Crosses, the Royal Palace, and the Curonian Spit. A crucial point is that spiritual capital has value even when it is taken away from us, profaned or obliterated, or when we are forced to leave it, because it persists in our hearts regardless, brings and holds us together, and ever sustains us. The Soviets bulldozed the Hill of Crosses but we kept erecting crosses. The Muscovites destroyed our Royal Palace in the 1650s but we recently rebuilt it. Of course, when spiritual capital is made tangible, then we can better appreciate it. The Royal Palace lets us see that the Renaissance was part of the history of Lithuania. We may consider what spiritual capital Vilnius's oldest Jewish cemetery might have should we restore it.

Then as a distributed network of independent agents they may be even more productive, for good or for bad. That is spiritual capital. Such a symphony of aspirations is evident in a cemetery which spans centuries.

I wish to support the restoration of Vilnius's oldest Jewish cemetery as a symbol of empathy for Lithuania's Jews, the Litvaks, whom we lost to the Holocaust. In order to discuss the surprising obstacles, and how to overcome them, I will develop the concept of spiritual capital. First, in various ways I will distinguish spiritual capital and material capital. Then, I will discuss particular examples from Lithuania to consider what we need to know to make decisions about spiritual capital, how to recognize, measure, accumulate and utilize it.

The term "Spiritual Capital" is I think best developed by business consultants Zohar and Marshall who wrote a book about it in 2004. They teach that we need to foster spiritual intelligence for a spiritual culture that appreciates the nature of spiritual capital. I like their principles of spiritual intelligence, which basically involve awareness of ourselves, of the big picture, and how we fit together. I think of that as considering our relationship with God.

In business, there are terms which refer to spiritual capital but only in terms of money. Natural resources considers living things not in their own right, but only in terms of their utility to people, and only if that can be monetized. Human capital turns people into money; social capital - relationships; corporate social responsibility - citizenship; and brand equity - customers. Indeed, classical economics supposes that everything could and should be valued in terms of money.

We as people link our personal values with tangible forms of spiritual capital that we can rally around. They include the public spaces where meetings were held during our Independence movements, or entire neighborhoods, such as our old towns, or even our homelands, our countries. Such spaces take decades or centuries for us to grow attached to. In Lithuania, examples include the Hill of Crosses, the Royal Palace, and the Curonian Spit. A crucial point is that spiritual capital has value even when it is taken away from us, profaned or obliterated, or when we are forced to leave it, because it persists in our hearts regardless, brings and holds us together, and ever sustains us. The Soviets bulldozed the Hill of Crosses but we kept erecting crosses. The Muscovites destroyed our Royal Palace in the 1650s but we recently rebuilt it. We may consider what spiritual capital Vilnius's oldest Jewish cemetery might have should we restore it.

In mathematics, as well as in every day life, we can frame a choice in two very different mindsets, which reflect the differing experiences of the subjective chooser and the objective chosen. From the chooser's point of view, and of the chooser. In the mindset of that which is chosen, we are ever choosing between this or that. Such choices are symmetric in that we can interchange all of this and all of that. However, the chooser is This is the point of view of the chosen, which is to say, the material world. But subtle distinction between the chooser and the chosen. Indeed, in every day life we know that we which we know from every day life. Indeed, in every day life, We can distinguish the mathematics of the chosen and the mathematics of the chooser. In the spiritual mathematics of the chooser, which is spiritual, we only keep track of what is chosen

Measuring of spiritual capital
* Potential value: How much it challenges us to question the sufficiency of our deepest value.
* Manifest value: How broadly it lets us include others.

Challenges of spiritual capital
* things tend towards superficial resolution. - Have to integrate different people and interests in a nonsuperficial way
* Can be manipulated and abused - example of Lenin - example of LLKS
* Get rid of negative - lack of constructive positive
* Can take centuries to accumulate aura

[++Environment as Spiritual Capital.++]

[+An Argument for Restoring Vilnius's Oldest Jewish Cemetery+]

We develop a concept of "spiritual capital" which has suggested itself in the public debate regarding the future of the Vilnius Sports Palace, a large forum which the Soviets built in the 1960s on a Jewish cemetery which is the oldest in Vilnius and perhaps all of the Baltic states. This concept of spiritual capital is relevant for analyzing cultural surroundings but could also perhaps ground a healthy human relationship with natural surroundings.

The Sports Palace is no longer safe for use, and so there is an opportunity to dismantle it, and restore the cemetery, perhaps as a symbol of empathy for the loss to the Holocaust of Lithuania's world renowned Litvak community. Instead, the city is preparing to use European Union funds to renovate the Sports Palace for use as a convention center. The city is satisfied to have won the approval of the official Lithuanian Jewish community, and is not concerned by the disrespect felt by many Litvaks in Lithuania and around the world.

The actions of the city and economic developers are understandable from the point of view of typical economic thinking. In order to explain the value of restoring the cemetery, there is a need to appeal to the reality of additional dimensions. An example in Lithuania is the Hill of Crosses, which the Soviets kept bulldozing but Lithuanians kept restoring. It is a holy site which Pope John Paul II visited in 1993. Now consider the value of such a site. It is a real challenge to intentionally create such a site. And it typically takes decades or centuries. But it can offer longstanding benefits as a reference point that has a rich meaning for a wide variety of people. We sense that tangibly - we may say that it has a very strong aura, It also offers vast potential for leveraging its meaning in developing ever new symbols. For all of these reasons we may think of it as "spiritual capital" that we might invest in to develop and exploit. Such a concept makes clear that dismantling the Sports Palace can, from the point of view of "spiritual economics", yield a huge reward if Lithuania can understand itself as a country which mourns Jews, loves Jews and welcomes Jews. Alternatively, Lithuania could claim the Soviet atrocity as its own, and identify itself with Soviet heritage rather than Jewish heritage.

We develop these notions of "spiritual capital" and "spiritual economics" from a conceptual and even metaphysical point of view. The human mind may be described in terms of interactions between the unconscious (which tells us what we know) and the conscious (which tells us what we don't know). Experimental psychologists Kahneman and Tversky referred to these as System 1 and System 2. We consider a model where one's conscious mind invests in one's unconscious mind, which then later supports one's conscious mind. We may think of our unconscious minds as interlinked in a vast network which our conscious minds work to shape but must also work to resist. We can then think of "spiritual capital" as our investment in that cultural network and "spiritual economics" as describing our interactions with that network. In this way, we can consider our relationship with our cultural surroundings. We then consider what this means for our natural surroundings. In what sense does nature have spiritual capital? How do we interact with that and foster that?
