Las arquitecturas son los espacios estructurados en los que evolucionamos individual y colectivamente. Nos proveen de contextos de iniciación dotados de restricciones y areas de libertad donde la conciencia se confronta consigo misma, genera energía creativa y sobrepasa sus limites a traves de saltos cuanticos ocupando asi espacios nuevos y más amplios. Dentro de estas nuevas arquitecturas podemos alcanzar una mayor experiencia y maestria.


Algunas arquitecturas son directamente accesibles a traves de nuestros sentidos (construcciones, ocupación de espacios). Otras solamente se pueden percibir de forma parcial (dinero, lenguaje, convenciones sociales, tiempo). En el primer caso hablamos de arquitecturas visibles y en el segundo de arquitecturas invisibles. Cuando usamos la palabra arquitecturas en plural nos referimos al concepto que engloba a ambas.

                                                                                                  Invisible architectures are more challenging

                                                                                                  to grasp because they operate mostly in
