Too much information is no information at all and a white sheet of paper

one's mind with a barrage of letters may achieve the same results as
understimulating it. Abulafia may have been suppressing his conscious
mind by overstimulating it.
surprising about Abulafia is that he did not reach this state by
suppressing his conscious mind, as most mystics do by repetition of a
single formula/mantra, but by overstimulating it with letter
combinations accompanied by body motions.
Numbers and more generally mathematics and logic (more precisely self
referential logic) is an essential requirement of consciousness. Using
the same Anthropic reasoning that I used in my previous post, one could
infer that mathematics and logic also co-emerged with consciousness and
the world out of chaos. - Bruno is an expert in the field of self
referential logical system. Who knows, self referential logical systems
implemented in software may become a reality within our lifetime.
I haven't thought enough how the technique of letter combinations
could be related to consciousness. Any ideas?
