Scientists have found that our bodies and our minds have both deteriorated significantly compared to our ancestors. In fact, just this week a very prominent professor at Cambridge University said that “our most highly trained athletes pale in comparison to these ancestors of ours”. The biggest reason for this, of course, is the degradation of the human genome. Groundbreaking research by Dr. John Sanford of Cornell University and others has shown that our genes contain tens of thousands of mistakes (mutations), and with each passing generation even more errors are added and passed on. So it should be no surprise that our ancestors were bigger, stronger, faster and smarter. The truth is that they had better genes.
This kind of information comes as a shock to many people. It is widely assumed by the general public that humanity is “progressing” and that we are better both physically and mentally than our predecessors were. But that is not the case at all. In fact, research conducted at Cambridge University shows that we are “weaker than we used to be” and that the most highly trained athletes of today “pale in comparison” to those that lived thousands of years ago…
The term “self-actualization” was made popular by Abram Maslow in his hierarchy of needs theory of human development. Essentially self-actualization is an existential term indicating the prominent feeling of being fully alive and aware of what it means to be a meaning-creating creature in an otherwise meaningless universe. It is the self-realization of one’s individuated maturity in balance with an interdependent spirit. Self-actualized people have a healthy perception of reality (mind, body, and soul) and practice healthy habits. Here are seven things self-actualized people tend to do differently than the rest of us.
1.) They speak a language older than words
“Crazy wisdom is the articulation in life of the realization that the phenomenal world (samsara) and the transcendental Reality (nirvana) share the same essence.” –Georg Feuerstein
Self-actualized people tend to be acutely aware of the interconnectedness of all things. As such, they are able to form deep relationships with nature. From these relationships develops a profound nonverbal communication, what Derrick Jensen refers to as, “a language older than words.” It’s in the body, resonating within an ancient muscle memory. You have to be still to hear it. You have to be silent to realize how loud it really is. By relearning this nonverbal language, we open ourselves up to the majesty of the cosmos and allow for the inner-workings of nature to rethread itself through us. It can be as simple as the body warning us that we’ve consumed too little water, or as complex as the cosmos pinpointing for us what is the healthy way for a human being to live in an interconnected world. Until we can relearn this language, and once again engage in a healthy dialogue with nature and the cosmos, we will continue to be tricked by the less evolved aspect of ourselves. Self-actualized people are able to learn from this deep dialogue with nature, and are therefore rarely tricked by the less evolved aspects of themselves.
2.) They embrace solitude
“Solitude is not an absence of energy or action, as some believe, but is rather a boon of wild provisions transmitted to us from the soul. Purposeful solitude is both palliative and preventative. It is used to prevent fatigue and weariness.” –Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Self-actualized people are able to get away from the cultural rat-race and embrace solitude. As it stands, the loss of Soul in our culture has become untenable. Hegel’s “silent weaving of the spirit” has unraveled into discordant knots of anxiety and neurosis. We live in a dog-eat-dog society of nine-to-five wage slavery, brainwashed into working jobs we don’t like in order to buy things we don’t need. Self-actualized people are aware of this. And even if they are currently stuck in such a pattern, they at least understand how important solitude is for the human soul to breathe. In a lot of ways solitude with nature is where we learn a language older than words. But losing ourselves in the wild is about rediscovering a balance between nature and the human soul. It’s about trumping the noisy ego with sacred silence. Solitude teaches us how to be quiet in order to reconnect. We find that the more we open up to the world, the more the world opens up to us.
3.) They are radically creative
“There can be no transformation in the world outside unless there is transformation from within. It is our responsibility to bring about a radical transformation within ourselves.” –Krishnamurti
Self-actualized people are determined to connect the disconnected by using authentic artistic expression as their vehicle. They are extremely innovative and are able to use rebellion and art as a tool for obliterating unsustainable hierarchies and close-minded elitism. They are not driven by petty revenge or egoistic one-upmanship. They empathize and actualize as they disrupt, seeking not to discredit and embarrass the status quo with their mischief, but to shock it into becoming more authentic. Self-actualized people celebrate the soul instead of the conditioned reflexes of the ego. They celebrate through their radical artistic expression, and they love what they profane. Weaving their knowledge and experience together in creative ways, they stir up the stagnant status quo, honoring their engagement with it even as they tweak it out of its extremism. They understand intuitively what Martin Luther King Jr. meant when he said, “Those who love peace must learn to organize as effectively as those who love war.”
4.) They practice mindful meditation
“When the creative power of the universe becomes conscious of itself, it manifests as joy. You don’t have to wait for something “meaningful” to come into your life so that you can finally enjoy what you do. There is more meaning in joy than you will ever need. The “waiting to start living” is one of the most common delusions of the unconscious state. Expansion and positive change is more likely to come into your life if you can enjoy what you are doing already, instead of waiting for some change so you can start enjoying what you do.” –Eckhart Tolle
Self-actualized people realize that the universe itself is a vibrating orchestra of varying frequencies all in superposition with each other. Essentially, mindful meditation is the act of familiarizing ourselves with our own unique contribution to this orchestra. Learning how to meditate is becoming present to the interconnectedness of all things. When we meditate we come to realize that we are both the seer and the seen. We are an extension of the universe becoming aware of itself. This is the importance of presence. Being in the moment, and especially being quiet and listening to what the moment has to say, is the foundation of healthy, mindful meditation. Self-actualized people understand that with enough meditation practice we can, like Thomas Berry said, “Move the human community from its destructive presence on the planet to a benign or mutually enhancing presence on the planet.”
5.) They are able to form deep relationships
“People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used” –Anonymous
Self-actualized people practice relationship-based love as opposed to the ownership-based love that is rampant in our society. They are able to integrate rather than segregate. They understand that a healthy relationship is neither other nor self: it is both at once. We live in a world of immeasurably complex relationships that can only be understood when the veil of deceit and spoon-fed lies drops and we are able to engage with each other respectfully. Self-actualized people are able to see through the smoke screen and can therefore engage each other with authentic in-the-moment presence. They can listen deeply, without having an agenda, and they understand that being truly loving is not achieving a state of invulnerability but achieving a state of absolute vulnerability. Compassionate honesty is their mantra and authentic communication is their vehicle toward deep connection. This is, as Daniel J. Siegel wrote, “How we dissolve our sometimes confining sense of “I” and become a part of an expanding identity, a “we” larger than even our interpersonal relationships. It is how we integrate integration.”
6.) They are able to let go and forgive
“We need a more capacious model of love. In this model, love is not predicated on sharing each other’s world as we might share a soul. It is predicated, instead, on sharing it as we might share a story… If stories only succeed when we consent to suspend disbelief, relationships require of us something similar: the ability to let go of our own worldview long enough to be intrigued and moved by someone else’s.” –Kathryn Schulz
Two of the most difficult things a human being can do in this world are to forgive and to act with compersion. Self-actualized people are able to do both of these things. They have the ability to let others live the way they need to live and the ability to let things go. Letting things go is a painful process of maturity. It requires an almost saint-like disposition toward reality. When it comes to love and relationships it requires compersion: contrasted with jealousy as a feeling of joy associated with seeing a loved one love another. Perhaps the only other emotion more difficult to master is forgiveness. And sometimes we need both in order to grow and mature in life and in relationships. Self-actualized people understand this and are able to set their egos aside in order to love holistically and with compassionate detachment. Letting go and acting with forgiveness is trumping Small Mind, which is petty and personal, with Big Mind, which is holistic and mature. Like Rebecca Goldstein wrote in Plato at the Googleplex, “We become more worthy the more we bend our minds to the impersonal. We become better as we take in the universe, thinking more about the largeness that is, and less about the smallness that is us.”
7.) They are emotional alchemists par excellence
“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.” –William James
Self-actualized people are perennial alchemists. They have the ability to transform anger into strength, fear into courage, and jealousy into compersion. They know how to empower themselves by controlling their “negative” emotions through “positive” action. Self-actualized people understand that the action truly is the thing. Most people act the way they feel. But this doesn’t have to be the case. We do have a choice. With enough discipline and practice we can actually feel the way we act. For example: you can “feel” scared but “act” courageous. Similarly, you can “feel” road rage but “act” calmly. With enough practice you can eventually feel the way you act. Through emotional alchemy, happiness truly is a choice. Charlie Chaplain said it best, “Smile though your heart is aching.” Self-actualized people know how to transform demons into diamonds, wounds into wisdom, and pain into strength. They make it a habit to consistently seize the moment and make the most of it. Like Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
Today’s world is a strange place. We are inundated with signals from early on in life, encouraging each of us to walk a particular path, establishing blinders on us along the way to discourage us from looking for alternatives to what the herd is doing or thinking. Life is so complex that overtime, if we are paying attention, we realize that there are an infinite number of possibilities to what the human experience could be, and we come see that the world is on fire because individuals all too infrequently question why things are the way they are, failing to notice that their mindset or behavior needs adjustment in favor of more intelligent, common sensical, or sustainable patterns of existence.
Not meant to be overtly critical of anyone’s lifestyle choices or personal situation, the following 16 signs that you’re a slave to the matrix are meant purely as an observational approach to helping you identify the areas of your life where you may be missing an opportunity to liberate yourself from someone else’s self-destructive design for your life.
from BurlingtonUFOCenter Website
Edgar Cayce has said in his teachings that Arcturus is one of the most advanced civilizations in this galaxy.
It is the fifth- dimensional civilization that is a prototype of Earth's future. Its energy works as an emotional, mental, and spiritual healer for humanity. It is also an energy gateway through which humans pass during death and rebirth.
It functions as a way station for nonphysical consciousness to become accustomed to physicality.
The Book of Knowledge - The Keys of Enoch describes it as the mid-way programming center used by the physical brotherhoods in this universe to govern the many rounds of experiments with "physicals" at this end of the galaxy.
Arcturus itself is the brightest star in the Bootes constellation, which is approximately thirty-six light years from Earth.
Some fascinating information comes from a book by Norma Milanovich called We, the Arcturians, which I highly recommend.
Of all the extraterrestrial civilizations, I feel most drawn to Arcturus, probably because of their total focus in every aspect of society on the path of God-realization.
For that reason I will go into detail in describing their wonderful civilization.
I also have the good fortune to know someone from Arcturus, who is living on the Earth plane. She is one of the most spiritually gifted people I know. My connection with her and her work has greatly enhanced my own life and spiritual path.
The Arcturians teach that the most fundamental ingredient for living in the fifth dimension is love. Negativity, fear and guilt must be overcome and exchanged for love and light.
The Arcturians work in close connection with the ascended masters whom they call the Brotherhood of the All. They also work closely with what they refer to as the Galactic Command. The Arcturians travel the universe in their starships, which are some of the most advanced in the entire universe.
One of the reasons Earth has not been attacked by warlike negative extraterrestrials has been those civilizations' fear of the advanced starships of the Arcturians. Their ships are state-of-the-art technology, far beyond anything I have mentioned so far. One of the starships circling the Earth is called theStarship Athena, after the Greek goddess.
Arcturian society is governed by the elders, who are revered by the people of Arcturus for their advanced knowledge, wisdom, and extremely high vibrational frequencies. The higher the vibrational frequency, the closer one is to Light, or spirit, or God.
The Arcturians are short in physical statue, about three or four feet tall, and slender. They look very much alike, which they are happy about because it erases the pettiness of comparing looks which is so predominant to Earth society.
MaNithyaSudevi "Coming out" as an Arcturian Starseed
The Arcturians are the most loving and non-judgmental beings you can possibly imagine.
Their eyes are dark brown or black. Their main organ of seeing is actually their telepathic nature, not their physical eyes. Their sense of hearing transcends even their telepathic nature. They also have an ability to sense with the backs of their heads.
The average life span is from three hundred fifty to four hundred years. Their highly developed spiritual nature has allowed them to avoid aging, since they have the ability to transcend time and space. They terminate life when the contract that has been arranged for their existence is finished. There is no sickness in Arcturus; it was eliminated centuries ago.
In the Arcturian system there are no extreme temperatures. Their civilization is one that has transcended duality and lives in oneness. Professions on Arcturus are determined by a person's vibrational frequency and the colors in his or her aura. For example, those who are in charge of taking care of the children must have violet as the predominant color in their auras, for only the wisest souls are allowed to associate with the young.
The same is true for those who are allowed to give birth.
They are screened and tested in terms of their auric and vibrational frequencies, and when chosen by the elders to give birth to an Arcturian child, people go through an amazing process. The vibrations of both individuals involved are raised to a seventh- dimensional frequency for the birthing process to insure bringing in the most highly evolved souls. (The seventh-dimensional frequency is that of an ascended master.)
Reproduction is an honor on Arcturus and one of the most highly regarded professions. The actual reproductive act is not performed in a physical sense as it is understood on Earth. On Arcturus it is done through a kind of mind link in which the male and female energies are perfectly balanced. Through this procreation process, some kind of electron force flows through the two beings, and it creates another being that is a replica of the link.
The new life form is then taken to a special room that emanates the proper vibrational frequencies until the being is ready for integration into a family unit on Arcturus. Many beings from Arcturus are seeded onto other planets because the high council has ordered this as a great act.
On Arcturus there is not competition.
Every thought, word, deed, and product is judged by its ability to raise the vibration closer to God. If it does not, it does not exist on Arcturus. A person's frequency of vibration is directly related to the mastery he has over his body, emotions, thoughts, actions, and creations. Arcturians have total mastery over these aspects of self.
They have developed the ability to transcend the ego, the separative, lower, fear-based self. Success is judged only in terms of the measure of Light frequency. There are machines that constantly check the vibrational frequencies each individual on the planet is manifesting.
If one particular Arcturian receives feedback that he is not meeting his own goals for evolution, then immediately the elders send teachers to help that individual.

The Arcturian Starships
The Arcturian starships are the finest in the entire universe.
They are propelled by crystals that do not come from that planet but from a planet in the Milky Way that has not been discovered by Earthly scientists. These crystals have a way of conducting light energy from the Great Central Sun.
The Arcturians say that they not longer use computers because they long ago outgrew the need for them. They have other systems that are far more advanced. One section of the starship is a replication of Arcturus. It has the ability to take any crewmember back to Arcturus in his etheric body. This helps to strengthen and rejuvenate crewmembers who are away from home for long periods of time as they traverse the universes.
Earth's frequency is very harsh for Arcturians because of their fifth-dimensional frequency.
Arcturians don't eat but are able to ingest energy. The Arcturians sleep for only a short time once a week, but for them it is a sacred time to soul travel and connect to higher realms of consciousness.
Another room in the Arcturian starship has a complete data bank containing every aspect of Earth life and of life on other planets as well. Arcturians are able to ingest information by means of their telepathic abilities and through their nervous systems. This process is similar to ingesting food but it occurs on an energy level. They are able to assimilate information one hundred times faster than the average human being on Earth.
An Arcturian ship has a room that strengthens the vibration of all who enter so they will not be overwhelmed by even the strongest vibrations of Planet Earth. The Arcturians are able to travel through time. They also have shuttlecraft that are global in shape which are used for activating energy points and grids on Earth that have been lying dormant for many centuries.
The Arcturians have been working with Earth since life first started on this planet. They have many bases on Earth, and they also have three bases on the Moon. Many of their bases on Earth are inside mountains. Arcturians can manifest physically, but they also exist in the etheric state, so physical matter is not an obstacle to them.
There is a vaporizing section in a starship that can instantly make any person or object disappear. They use it on a person only if he has died. The amazing thing about this machine is that whatever is vaporized can be resolidified at any time in the future just by checking the ship's records. The more I learn about Arcturus, the more Star Trek seems realistic.
Many souls are brought to the Arcturian starships during the dream state where they are worked on and helped, although the Arcturians never invade a person's free choice as the Grays are doing.
The Arcturians are here to assist humans in entering the fourth and fifth dimensions of reality and in raising their vibrational frequencies. They stand as the guardians and protectors of higher consciousness in the universe.
They are based in every country on the planet and, and in fact, have bases all over the universe. They are here to educate humanity but have had a difficult time dealing with the government and the military, who are primarily interested in military technology, not spiritual enlightenment.
The Arcturians could help in an even greater and more open capacity than they are now, but the people who govern the United States and the world are so materialistically and egoistically oriented that they resist the help of these incredibly advanced beings.
Instead, the U.S. government made a deal with the Grays who are very selfish beings interested only in taking over the world for their own greedy purposes.
A 13th century bishop’s theory about the formation of the universe has intriguing parallels with the theory of multiple universes. This was uncovered by the the Ordered Universe project at Durham University, which has brought together researchers from humanities and the sciences in a radically collaborative way.
The project explores the conceptual world of Robert Grosseteste, one of the most dazzling minds of his generation (1170 to 1253): sometime bishop of Lincoln, church reformer, theologian, poet, politician, and one of the first to absorb, teach and debate new texts on natural phenomena that were becoming available to western scholars. These texts, principally the natural science of the greek scholar Aristotle, were translated from Arabic into Latin during the course of the 12th and 13th centuries, along with a wonderful array of material from Islamic and Jewish commentators. They revolutionised the intellectual resources of western scholars, posing challenges to established ways of thinking.
We now recognise that the thinking they stimulated prepared the way for the scientific advances of the 16th and 17th centuries, too. Nearly 800 years later the example of Grosseteste’s works provides the basis for doing great interdisciplinary work, offering unexpected challenges to both modern scientists and humanities experts alike, especially in working closely together.
Giant of science
Grosseteste has been a prominent figure in the history of science, from the early decades of the 20th century, yet the vital 1912 edition of his works is badly in need of revision: the editor had access to fewer than half the extant manuscripts. So we are taking on this task.
While Grosseteste may not be the originator of western experimental science, his scientific works come close to advocating experiments. They are also beautifully balanced mathematical constructions, not always apparent to a literary reading, yet wondrously so to later medieval generations.
The core team of researchers for this work are drawn from medieval history and theology, vision science, physics and cosmology, medieval philosophy, with many other colleagues engaged on particular aspects of the treatises under scrutiny, from marine scientists to astronomers. Following a principle of collaborative reading, all researchers contribute to the preparation of the edition, the translation and the interpretation
The light fantastic
Grosseteste’s treatise on light, called De Luce (Concerning Light), is the earliest known attempt to describe the universe using a coherent set of physical laws, centuries before Isaac Newton. It proposes that the same physics of light and matter, which explain the solidity of ordinary objects, could be applied to the cosmos as a whole.
In explaining the formation of the ancient universe, geocentric and composed of a series of nested spheres, Grosseteste conceives the universe as beginning from a single point of light, the fusion of matter and form, which expands until matter can be moved no further: the first sphere. A different form of light radiates inwards compressing matter, until it will move no further, generating the second sphere, and so on.
Grosseteste’s calculations are very consistent and precise. Had he had access to modern calculus and computing methods, he surely would have used them. In a recent paper, just published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A, our team built computer models to express Grosseteste’s equations. In doing so it suggests, although this was probably not apparent to Grosseteste at the time, a series of ordered universes reminiscent of the modern “multiverse” concept.
Color and illumination
We have been led to other startling discoveries. Correcting some serious errors in the modern edition has clarified Grosseteste’s three-dimensional conception of color: two qualities of light (copious or scarce, bright or dim) couple with a third connected to the medium embodying it (pure or impure).
We have been able to use Grosseteste’s theory of the rainbow to find a new coordinate system for modern three-dimensional colour space. In his theory, the three dimensions of colour reappear as differences between rainbows and within rainbows, and under different solar illumination. As a result we have been able to describe a new “meshed spiral” co-ordinate system for the color-space scientists use today.
Humanities and science
For those in the humanities, this work enshrines the significance of Grosseteste as a thinker, and has shown the profoundly important ways in which modern scientists have helped to shape the processes of editing, translating and commenting on his works. For the scientists, this work has given a new historical perspective on our current assumptions, and new science, such as development in calculation tools for a class of shock wave, or novel colour mapping.
As well as inspiring the surprising new science, all of these investigations sharpen our knowledge of this thinker and his texts by urging a closer, “functional” reading of the text. Each step is also deepening and widening our historical appreciation of Grosseteste and his creative, disciplined and vivid intellectual imagination.
As long as dialogue between the disciplines is maintained there are no backward steps. Every suggestion contributes to the understanding of where we stand in relation to Grosseteste’s world, and in longer perspective where science comes from within human culture. Our project explores modern and medieval scientific questions, and draws on historical and contemporary interpretations in a symbiosis of science and humanities skills. As science writer Michael Brookes in a recent New Statesman piece points out, it illustrates the intellectual curiosity and creative flair released when the two cultures meet.
Is our universe merely one of billions? Evidence of the existence of 'multiverse' revealed for the first time by a cosmic map of background radiation data gathered by Planck telescope. The first 'hard evidence' that other universes exist has been claimed to have been found by cosmologists studying new Planck data released this past June. They have concluded that it shows anomalies that can only have been caused by the gravitational pull of other universes.
"Such ideas may sound wacky now, just like the Big Bang theory did three generations ago," says George Efstathiou, professor of astrophysics at Cambridge University."But then we got evidence and now it has changed the whole way we think about the universe."Scientists had predicted that it should be evenly distributed, but the map shows a stronger concentration in the south half of the sky and a 'cold spot' that cannot be explained by current understanding of physics. Laura Mersini-Houghton, theoretical physicist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Richard Holman, professor at Carnegie Mellon University, predicted that anomalies in radiation existed and were caused by the pull from other universes in 2005. Mersini-Houghton will be in Britain soon promoting this theory and, we expect, the hard evidence at the Hay Festival on May 31 and at Oxford on June 11.
Dr Mersini-Houghton believes her hypothesis has been proven from the Planck data that data has been used to create a map of light from when the universe was just 380,000 years old. "These anomalies were caused by other universes pulling on our universe as it formed during the Big Bang," she says. "They are the first hard evidence for the existence of other universes that we have seen."
Columbia University mathematician Peter Woit writes in his blog, Not Even Wrong, that in recent years there have been many claims made for “evidence” of a multiverse, supposedly found in the CMB data. "Such claims often came with the remark that the Planck CMB data would convincingly decide the matter. When the Planck data was released two months ago, I looked through the press coverage and through the Planck papers for any sign of news about what the new data said about these multiverse evidence claims. There was very little there; possibly the Planck scientists found these claims to be so outlandish that it wasn’t worth the time to look into what the new data had to say about them.
"One exception," Woit adds, "was this paper, where Planck looked for evidence of 'dark flow'. They found nothing, and a New Scientist article summarized the situation: 'The Planck team’s paper appears to rule out the claims of Kashlinsky and collaborators,' says David Spergel of Princeton University, who was not involved in the work. If there is no dark flow, there is no need for exotic explanations for it, such as other universes, says Planck team member Elena Pierpaoli at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. “You don’t have to think of alternatives.'"
"Dark Flow" sounds like a new SciFi Channel series. It's not! The dark flow is controversial because the distribution of matter in the observed universe cannot account for it. Its existence suggests that some structure beyond the visible universe -- outside our "horizon" -- is pulling on matter in our vicinity.
Back in the Middle Ages, maps showed terrifying images of sea dragons at the boundaries of the known world. Today, scientists have observed strange new motion at the very limits of the known universe - kind of where you'd expect to find new things, but they still didn't expect this. A huge swath of galactic clusters seem to be heading to a cosmic hotspot and nobody knows why.
Cosmologists regard the microwave background -- a flash of light emitted 380,000 years after the universe formed -- as the ultimate cosmic reference frame. Relative to it, all large-scale motion should show no preferred direction. A 2010 study tracked the mysterious cosmic 'dark flow' to twice the distance originally reported. The study was led by Alexander Kashlinsky at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
"This is not something we set out to find, but we cannot make it go away," Kashlinsky said. "Now we see that it persists to much greater distances - as far as 2.5 billion light-years away," he added.
Dark flow describes a possible non-random component of the peculiar velocity of galaxy clusters. The actual measured velocity is the sum of the velocity predicted by Hubble's Law plus a small and unexplained (or dark) velocity flowing in a common direction. According to standard cosmological models, the motion of galaxy clusters with respect to the cosmic microwave background should be randomly distributed in all directions. However, analyzing the three-year WMAP data using the kinematic Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect, the authors of the study found evidence of a "surprisingly coherent" 600–1000 km/s flow of clusters toward a 20-degree patch of sky between the constellations of Centaurus and Vela.
The clusters appear to be moving along a line extending from our solar system toward Centaurus/Hydra, but the direction of this motion is less certain. Evidence indicates that the clusters are headed outward along this path, away from Earth, but the team cannot yet rule out the opposite flow.
"We detect motion along this axis, but right now our data cannot state as strongly as we'd like whether the clusters are coming or going," Kashlinsky said.
The unexplained motion has hundreds of millions of stars dashing towards a certain part of the sky at over eight hundred kilometers per second. Not much speed in cosmic terms, but the preferred direction certainly is: most cosmological models have things moving in all directions equally at the extreme edges of the universe. Something that could make things aim for a specific spot on such a massive scale hasn't been imagined before. The scientists are keeping to the proven astrophysical strategy of calling anything they don't understand "dark", terming the odd motion a "dark flow".
A black hole can't explain the observations - objects would accelerate into the hole, while the NASA scientists see constant motion over a vast expanse of a billion light-years. You have no idea how big that is. This is giant on a scale where it's not just that we can't see what's doing it; it's that the entire makeup of the universe as we understand it can't be right if this is happening.
The hot X-ray-emitting gas within a galaxy cluster scatters photons from the cosmic microwave background (CMB). Because galaxy clusters don't precisely follow the expansion of space, the wavelengths of scattered photons change in a way that reflects each cluster's individual motion.
This results in a minute shift of the microwave background's temperature in the cluster's direction. The change, which astronomers call the kinematic Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (KSZ) effect, is so small that it has never been observed in a single galaxy cluster.
But in 2000, Kashlinsky, working with Fernando Atrio-Barandela at the University of Salamanca, Spain, demonstrated that it was possible to tease the subtle signal out of the measurement noise by studying large numbers of clusters.
In 2008, armed with a catalog of 700 clusters assembled by Harald Ebeling at the University of Hawaii and Dale Kocevski, now at the University of California, Santa Cruz, the researchers applied the technique to the three-year WMAP data release. That's when the mystery motion first came to light.
The new study builds on the previous one by using the five-year results from WMAP and by doubling the number of galaxy clusters.
"It takes, on average, about an hour of telescope time to measure the distance to each cluster we work with, not to mention the years required to find these systems in the first place," Ebeling said. "This is a project requiring considerable followthrough."
According to Atrio-Barandela, who has focused on understanding the possible errors in the team's analysis, the new study provides much stronger evidence that the dark flow is real. For example, the brightest clusters at X-ray wavelengths hold the greatest amount of hot gas to distort CMB photons. "When processed, these same clusters also display the strongest KSZ signature -- unlikely if the dark flow were merely a statistical fluke," he said.
In addition, the team, which now also includes Alastair Edge at the University of Durham, England, sorted the cluster catalog into four "slices" representing different distance ranges. They then examined the preferred flow direction for the clusters within each slice. While the size and exact position of this direction display some variation, the overall trends among the slices exhibit remarkable agreement.
The researchers are currently working to expand their cluster catalog in order to track the dark flow to about twice the current distance. Improved modeling of hot gas within the galaxy clusters will help refine the speed, axis, and direction of motion.
Future plans call for testing the findings against newer data released from the WMAP project and the European Space Agency's Planck mission, which is also currently mapping the microwave background.
Which is fantastic! Such discoveries force a whole new set of ideas onto the table which, even if they turn out to be wrong, are the greatest ways to advance science and our understanding of everything. One explanation that's already been offered is that our universe underwent a period of hyper-inflation early in its existence, and everything we think of as the vast and infinite universe is actually a small corner under the sofa of the real expanse of reality. Which would be an amazing, if humbling, discovery.
Let me remind you who you really are: You’re an immortal freedom fighter who longs to liberate all sentient creatures from their suffering. You’re a fun-loving messiah who devoutly wants to help all of your fellow messiahs claim the ecstatic awareness that is their birthright.
Try to remember. You’re a vortex of fluidic light that has temporarily taken on the form of a human being, suffering amnesia about your true origins. And why did you do that? Because it was the best way to forge the identity that would make you such an elemental force in our 14-billion-year campaign to bring heaven all the way down to earth.
I’m not speaking metaphorically here. You are a mutant deity in disguise — not a Buddha or a Christ exactly, but of the same lineage and conjured from the same fire. You have been around since the beginning of time and will be here after the end. Every day and in every way, you’re getting better at playing the preposterously amusing master game we all dreamed up together before the Big Bang bloomed.
Lately, I must admit, our work has seemed almost comically impossible. Many of us have given in to the temptation to believe that everything is upside-down and inside-out. Ignorance and inertia, partially camouflaged as time-honored morality, seem to surround us. Pessimism is enshrined as a hallmark of worldliness. Compulsive skepticism masquerades as perceptiveness. Mean-spirited irony is chic. Stories about treachery and degradation provoke a visceral thrill in millions of people who think of themselves as reasonable and smart. Beautiful truths are suspect and ugly truths are readily believed.
So no, at this peculiar turning point in the evolution of our 14-billion-year-old master game, it’s not easy to carry out our mission. We’ve got to be both wrathful insurrectionaries and exuberant lovers of life. We’ve got to cultivate cheerful buoyancy even as we resist the temptation to swallow thousands of delusions that have been carefully crafted and seductively packaged by those messiahs among us who bravely volunteered to play the role of know-it-all deceivers.
We have to learn how to stay in a good yet unruly mood as we overthrow the sour, puckered mass hallucination that is mistakenly referred to as “reality.”
Maybe most importantly, we have to be ferociously and single-mindedly dedicated to the cause of beauty and truth and love even as we keep our imaginations wild and hungry and free. We have to be both disciplined and rowdy.
What can we do to help each other in this work?
First, we can create safe houses to shelter everyone who’s devoted to the slow-motion awakening of humanity. These sanctuaries might take the form of temporary autonomous zones like festivals and parties and workshops, where we can ritually explore and potentiate the evolving mysteries of pronoia (the antidote to paranoia). Or they might be more enduring autonomous zones like homes and cafes and businesses where we can get regular practice in freeing ourselves from the slavery of hatred in all of its many guises.
What else can we do to help each other? We can conspire together to carry out the agenda that futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard names: to hospice what’s dying and midwife what’s being born. We need the trigger of each other’s rebel glee as we kill off every reflex within us that resonates in harmony with the putrefaction. We need each other’s dauntless cunning as we goad and foment the blooming life forces within us.
Here’s a third way we can collaborate: We can inspire each other to perpetrate healing mischief, friendly shocks, compassionate tricks, irreverent devotion, holy pranks, playful experiments, and crazy wisdom.
Huh? What do tricks and mischief and jokes have to do with our quest? Isn’t America in a permanent state of war? Isn’t it the most militarized empire in the history of the world? Hasn’t the paranoia about terrorism decimated our civil liberties? Isn’t it our duty to grow more serious and weighty than ever before?
On the contrary: I say this is the perfect moment to take everything less seriously and less personally and less literally.
Permanent war and the loss of civil liberties are immediate dangers. But they are only symptoms of an even larger, long-term threat to the fate of the earth: the genocide of the imagination.
Elsewhere, I have identified pop-nihilist storytellers as the vanguard perpetrators of this genocide of the imagination. But there is another culprit as well: fundamentalism.
The fundamentalist takes everything way too seriously and way too personally and way too literally. He divides the world into two camps, those who agree with him and those who don’t. There is only one right way to interpret the world, and a million wrong ways. Correct belief is the only virtue.
To the fundamentalist, the liberated imagination is a sinful taboo. He not only enslaves his own imagination to his ideology, but wants to enslave our imaginations, too.
And who are the fundamentalists? Let’s not remain under the delusion that they are only the usual suspects — the religious fanatics of Islam and Christianity and Judaism and Hinduism.
There are many other kinds of fundamentalists, and some of them have gotten away with practicing their tragic magic in a stealth mode. Among the most successful are those who believe in what Robert Anton Wilson calls fundamentalist materialism. This is the faith-based dogma that swears physical matter is the only reality and that nothing exists unless it can be detected by our five senses or by technologies that humans have made.
Life has no transcendent meaning or purpose, the fundamentalist materialists proclaim. There is no such thing as a divine intelligence. The universe is a dumb accidental machine that grinds on endlessly out of blind necessity.
I see spread out before me in every direction a staggeringly sublime miracle lovingly crafted by a supernal consciousness that oversees the evolution of 500 billion galaxies, yet is also available as an intimate companion and daily advisor to every one of us. But to the fundamentalist materialists, my perceptions are indisputably wrong and idiotic.
Many other varieties of fundamentalism thrive and propagate. Every ideology, even some of the ones I like, has its share of true believers — fanatics who judge all other ideologies as inferior, flawed, and foolish.
I know astrologers who insist there’s only one way to do astrology right. I know Buddhists who adamantly decree that the inherent nature of life on Earth is suffering. I know progressive activists who sincerely believe that every single Republican is either stupid or evil or both. I know college administrators who would excommunicate any psychology professor who dared to discuss the teachings of Carl Jung, who was in my opinion one of the greatest minds of the 20th century. I know pagans who refuse to consider any other version of Jesus Christ beyond the sick parody the Christian right has fabricated.
None of the true believers like to hear that there are at least three sides to every story. They don’t want to consider the hypothesis that everyone has a piece of the truth.
And here’s the really bad news: We all have our own share of the fundamentalist virus. Each of us is fanatical, rigid, and intolerant about products of the imagination that we don’t like. We wish that certain people would not imagine the things they do, and we allow ourselves to beam hateful, war-like thoughts in their direction.
We even wage war against our own imaginations, commanding ourselves, sometimes half-consciously, to ignore possibilities that don’t fit into our neatly constructed theories. Each of us sets aside certain precious beliefs and symbols that we give ourselves permission to take very seriously and personally and literally.
Our fundamentalism, yours and mine, may not be as dangerous to the collective welfare as, say, the fundamentalism of Islamic terrorists and right-wing Christian politicians. It may not be as destructive as that of the CEOs who worship financial profit as the supreme measure of value, and the scientists who ignore and deny every mystery that can’t be measured, and the journalists, filmmakers, novelists, musicians, and pundits who relentlessly generate rotten visions of the human condition.
But still: We are all infected, you and I. We are fueling the war against the imagination. What’s your version of the virus?
Try to remember. We are reverent insurgents … convulsive beautifiers … rowdy avatars. We have more mojo at our disposal than we realize. But if we hope to navigate our way through this peculiar turning point in the evolution of our 14-billion-year-old master game, we will have to summon previously untapped reserves of that mojo. We will have to keep our imaginations wild and hungry and free, and make sure that all of our fellow messiahs, even those who volunteered to play the roles of ignorant deceivers, have the chance to keep their imaginations wild and hungry and free.
How might we start curing ourselves of the fundamentalist virus and move in the direction of becoming more festive and relentless champions of the liberated imagination?
For starters, we can take everything less seriously and less personally and less literally.
We can laugh at ourselves at least as much as we laugh at other people. We can blaspheme our own gods and burn our own flags and mock our own hypocrisy and satirize our own fads and fixations.
And we can enjoy and share the tonic pleasures of healing mischief, friendly shocks, compassionate tricks, irreverent devotion, holy pranks, playful experiments, and crazy wisdom.
A helpful analogy for understanding consciousness is to consider a human being as a highly advanced computer. In order for a computer to know what to do, software needs to be installed on the hard drive. The computer faithfully listens to and performs the functions the software tells it to do without questioning, even if the software is sometimes a bit faulty. Now imagine, for a second, that our consciousness is something like a computer hard drive and all our beliefs, habits and reactions are like the software…
Over our lifetime (beginning very early in childhood) we accumulate mounds of software; programming us to act and think a certain way, as defined by the culture we grew up in, our parents, our friends, the media and so on. We took on this conditioning automatically. We did not ask to be programmed. Just like the computer hard drive itself has no say in which programs the user puts on it, we didn’t choose which ones were thrown onto us.
The challenge here is that the innocence of the human mind cannot determine whether a program (conditioning) is beneficial or detrimental to its well being. Our hardware (the mind) easily installs these programs without hesitation or discernment. We may observe this in our automatic, unconscious reactions to certain situations or people and think ‘That wasn’t very nice, I wish I could have responded differently to that…’.
The reality of the matter is that we can wish all we want but if we are still running the same outdated programs in our subconscious mind then we will continue to see the same result. Certain thoughts and actions will repeatedly pop-up without us consciously choosing them. At times, it is as if we are being run on auto-pilot.
When I see my computer consistently giving me the results which are not desirable, I decide it’s time for an upgrade. We can do the same thing with our consciousness.
What is necessary in this instance is to uninstall these automated ‘software’ programs. A useful tool that works for computers is the anti-virus program. The function of the anti-virus program is to search the hard drive for unneeded or harmful programs, viruses, or outdated software. Once the anti-virus program has identified all useless programs, it deletes them and reboots the computer. The result is a fresh operating system that runs faster and more efficiently.
This is a helpful analogy when describing the subconscious mental patterns we encounter in our lives. There are many approaches to canceling subconscious mental conditioning: various meditative techniques, self help programs and other methods. One of the most beneficial ways is remarkably similar to the antivirus software program. It involves observing the thoughts which manifest in our minds and identifying beliefs which are no longer serving us.
The tricky thing when exploring consciousness is that we are dealing with energies which we can not see and which are hard even to feel. However we can observe the signs that there are programs running in our minds which are outdated. These signs come in the form of the thoughts we think. Once we can observe that negative thoughts are occurring within us we can rest assured that they are coming from subconscious programming which needs to be addressed.
With observation, we can see that these negative thoughts are stemming from a limiting belief we bought into, oftentimes long ago and without knowing any better. We actually thought that if we believed it, then it would help us to be happier.
Sometimes there is a regret over this and an unwillingness to let go of it. This is when we must remember that we had no say over this belief when we bought it. When it is realized that holding onto negative thoughts and feelings is actually making us sick, we can be courageous enough to forgive ourselves and let it go.
We can apply this technique of searching ourselves for limiting beliefs and bad programming to all areas of our lives and at all times. We can apply this unceasingly to the thoughts which run through our heads. We do not need to be run by that which no longer serves us. We can start to reprogram the mind on a deep level and consciously choose to positively condition ourselves. With practice and vigilance, this technique helps to clear away everything which obscures our true Self.
We are not what we think of ourselves; we are not our thoughts. Once the clouds of disillusionment fade away, whats revealed is our radiant Self. And it is this True Self which was there all along.
A term we see increasingly these days is spiritual warrior: and though at first it may sound heroic and noble, when you really think it over it's just another oxymoron like military intelligence, & jumbo shrimp. Outwardly the spiritual warrior is one who champions the cause of spirituality by daily practicing it in a way which strengthens the soul and inspires others. On a deeper level the spiritual warrior forever walks the shadows between the darkness and the light, standing guard against those dark brothers in dark robes. Perhaps the greatest battle the spiritual warrior fights is the one within; coming to terms with the duality and dichotomy of existence itself.
To some, the undertaking of spiritual practice at first seems to be all about expanding our spiritual horizons, to become a fully realized being on all levels. Because we seek to better ourselves does not mean we are better than others in any way. In fact, the whole point of spiritual practice isn't to become bigger or more, but rather to disappear all together, dissolved into the one cosmic consciousness. The "more spiritual" we become, the less likely we are to see violence as an option; and yet so very often the way of the warrior embraces it to one degree or another; that in the end we become the peaceful warriors Dan Millman wrote about.
To become a warrior against violence & intolerance is the way of the spiritual warrior, first in one's own life, and then to the world we perceive around us. When we find our way and follow our heart we begin to raise our vibration higher. This inspires us to empower ourselves even more, thus being as a light house or an example for others. Not for them to follow your path, but that by following their path...these things and so much more can be accomplished. This isn't an either/or universe; it's more of a both/and kinda place. There isn't just one way, or a single path to follow. Some would say there are twelve paths, while others still see them as infinite. The pathways may vary but the qualities gained while walking them are universal, and all lead to the same truth.
The spiritual warrior climbs the mountain of their consciousness, there to do battle with their own demons, learning how to defeat them; then returning back down the mountain to share what has been learned. Yes, at times the spiritual warrior must engage in energetic conflicts and psychic battles with those of the opposite polarity; but this is seen as more of a balancing than a true act of violence. Spiritual warriors never seek revenge even when such constraint rips their very soul asunder. Once a universal truth is learned it cannot be un-learned, and thus, to go against that knowing only serves to increase the damage & loss. "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, said the Lord" Romans 12:19
Those who choose to walk a spiritual path in this life often come to accept that they will be walking it alone. In the final analysis there are as many reasons for this as there are belief systems, because most are, sadly, still preaching separation rather than teaching Unity. When the mind becomes locked into any ideology that demonizes those of other beliefs, true progress is unlikely and enlightenment impossible. When we deny the divinity of others, we diminish our own divinity exponentially; and distance ourselves from our source. Does each grain of sand believe itself separate from the beach? Does the drop of seawater believe it is the entire ocean?
When you stand far enough back from it all; it becomes plain to see that part of humanity is invested in keeping us all apart, as another part tries to get us to come together, with everyone else caught in between this sibling rivalry of cosmic proportions. Unfortunately for everyone, this dichotomy is supported and enforced by those who seek to maintain their control over this planet and it's slave population. The very last thing they want is for humanity to unite and progress toward enlightenment. Remove all the window dressing and distractions and the truth is easy to see. What will you do about it?
This then is the battle most spiritual warriors find themselves engaged in most often, and if you aren't cautious you'll find yourself still fighting this 'battle' when the opportunity arrives to progress to a vaster reality, leaving all the childishness behind. Yes, it is still important to fight "the good fight" - just not on 4D earth, as that battle will never cease.
For a great many at this time The Good Fight has now become internal once again; as we detach from what was, in order to embrace what will be. The conflict now is with the remnants of our ego, and the strength of our convictions.
Don't Believe Everything You Think!
As we know, our thoughts are very powerful because it is through our thoughts that we create the 'reality' we perceive; yet most people still toss them around mindless of the chaos and pain they create...never understanding the cause & effect relationship at play. This disharmonious equation is made worse when we consider that most of the things coming out of most of the mouths are just rehashed, recycled thoughts picked up from some outside source rather than original thought, the product of critical thinking. People latch onto some outside thought, usually because of its intentionally crafted packaging and usage. Because it sounds intellectual and hip, people remember and repeat the slickly wrapped thought or belief, as if it IS original, and before ya know it, the thought becomes a belief...without ever having to pass much scrutiny of verification. Lamentably, a great many people form entire belief systems this way, assimilating slick sounding syllables to seem smarter than they really are; instead of through personal experience. Wading through stuff in the general population is what wears down a good many spiritual warriors over time. They become jaded and world weary realizing that much of humanity is still not ready for their message; still not willing to evolve. Add to this the aspect of walking the spiritual path alone; and we begin to understand why so many light workers and spiritual warriors are opting for the higher vibrations of fifth dimensional resonance.
Fifth dimensional emergence is already making itself known in various ways. Many have noticed that the sun is a bit brighter than usual these days while also noting that time has taken on some rather elastic attributes of late as well. Then there is the whole insanity of multiple synchronicities occurring in a short span of time. One person recently told me of having three different experiences each repeat themselves three times in a single day. Or perhaps you find yourself seeing 11:11 all the time, or variations thereof such as 12:12,12:34, etc, etc. - this too is another 5D signpost. Yet another "sign of the times" being experienced by many is that some things which once seemed so important now seem trivial and of little merit. Just ask your friends and co-workers if they have experienced any of these things ~ you will be surprised at how many have! Spiritual warriors and light workers are following these breadcrumb trails to a higher vibrational state of being because something in their soul tells them that their time is NOW!
The Mastodon in the Room!
Have you noticed how an awful lot of upscale insanity has erupted across this planet in just the last little while? All the sudden unrest with Egypt & Syria on top of an imminent war involving the rest of the mid-east countries...now the U.S. Government is ready to shut down, and this time there is more behind it than the usual dickish bickering between greedy haters. There are those who believe the USA ran out of money last May, and has been propping up a house of cards ever since...squeezing out every last dollar possible exactly like sharks in a blood-in-the-water feeding frenzy. These same folks will tell you that the reason the government shut itself down was to give themselves a head start. They know something is about to happen and they're not talking about it.
Fact is, almost nobody is talking about the one thing we should all be talking about, and that is the announced plans from Tepco to begin removing many thousands of spent fuel rods from those crippled reactors at Fukushima. Not to put too fine a point on it, but, if there is any mishap at all with those fuel rods, the release of radioactivity would be many times greater and deadlier than what has already leaked into the air and been deliberately dumped directly into the pacific ocean. One miscalculation or bad judgment call from Tepco with those fuel rods and the life priorities of seven billion humans changes instantly, and not in a life affirming way. This then is the Mastodon in the room, the one thing certain to kill every living organism except roaches and some bacteria - and nobody wants to talk about it, much less DO something about it. This is also what has spawned this feeding frenzy of aggression - it's the final grab before the balloon goes up. Is 5D resonance looking better to you yet?
The one thing most responsible for the demise of humanity is politics. This is easily understood by breaking the word down to it's root meanings: Poli- meaning many, and Tics- Blood sucking parasites! These greedy haters are psychopaths not the least bit interested in the upliftment of humanity, or anything beyond their own net worth. Seeing they would sooner burn it all down than to yield their power; the responsible spiritual warrior must choose their options from a dwindling menu of possibilities. Some are moving on to higher frequencies and vaster realities, while others will stay to assist those remaining with the 4D version of earth; when the timelines finally split permanently.
The future is being born right before our very eyes, and it is beckoning us to be participants rather than spectators...for as we have seen, if we don't create the world the way we think it should be; someone else will do it for us. How are you liking the results so far?
"It was the spring of the year 2014; and the wars had paused unexpectedly.
All around us it was as if the universe was holding its breath; waiting...
All of life can be broken down into moments of transition
and moments of revelation. This has the feeling of both!
There is a greater darkness than the one we fight,
it is the darkness of the soul that has lost it's way.
The war we fight is not against powers and principalities;
but against chaos and despair.
Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams.
Against this peril we can never surrender.
The future is all around us...waiting in moments of transition
to be born in moments of revelation.
No one knows the shape of the future, or where it will take us...
We know only, that it is always born in pain.
If we are wise, what is born of that pain
Matures into the promise of a better world
Because we learn that we can no longer afford
the mistakes of the past."
“…movement and change are actually prized for their own sake…outward action…fleeting…dispersion…a tendency toward instantaneity, have for its limit a state of pure disequilibrium, which…would coincide with the final dissolution of this world; and this too is one of the clearest signs that the final phase of the Kali Yuga is at hand.” - Rene Guenon, ‘The Crisis of the Modern World’
The French metaphysical scholar Rene Guenon (1886-1951) is considered to be one of the greatest of all in the western world. Guenon was no mere occultist. He was an authority on the Sanskrit teachings, Sufism, Taoism, and many others including western esoteric traditions. ‘The Reign of Quantity’ is his masterwork and was the turning point in my own understanding as he convinced me to accept the Cycles of Time as reality.
Guenon’s ‘The Crisis in the Modern World’ was written in 1942 and describes our current times with prescient and increasing accuracy. In the chapter on ‘Knowledge and Action’ Guenon explains in his razor-like French precision that the modern world, its sciences and philosophies, its very foundations have become completely disconnected from any metaphysical truth. The reason for this is our ongoing Kali Yuga descent into matter and limited five-sense perception, which blocks our understanding of the Invisible Realms that are the support and substratum of this entire universe.
The people who have become prominent in all fields of modern life simply are no longer capable of understanding the real underlying metaphysical principles that are the substratum of the temporal illusory earth we stand upon. Thus the various and always changing theories that become the basis of our lives are profoundly flawed, unsound, and subject to collapse. Rene Guenon: “It is impossible in any way to separate knowledge from the process by which it is acquired.” The intelligence that is now held in high esteem is of the lowest order — regardless of how many corporate global policy institute think-tanks these modern era PhD priests are ensconced within.
True knowledge consists in ‘identification’…
Guenon: “…for all true knowledge essentially consists in identification with its object.” This is the traditional ancient way of immersing consciousness to reach wisdom knowledge and is precisely what the shamans still today practice. In the west and spreading around the globe, this process of intense identification is overlooked and “…they admit nothing higher than rational or discursive knowledge, which is necessarily indirect and imperfect, being…reflected knowledge.” One is reminded of Plato’s shadows in a cave being taken as real.
This ‘lower type of knowledge’ has become more and more valued ‘only insofar as it can be made to serve immediate practical ends.’ Our modern western culture has become absorbed and obsessed with action, scientific and mathematical theories that produce profitable results, and have denied everything that lies beyond the grasp of their own limited five-sense perception. These servants of the corporatist scions are blind to the fact that acts thus disconnected from metaphysical truth degenerate — “from the absence of any principle, into an agitation as vain as it is sterile.”
We still know very little about the mysteries of our universe, beyond what produces short-term profit at the expense of Mother Earth. Reflect on the countless theories, scientific and others that have come and gone like ill winds. Arthur Koestler, the now forgotten genius whose works were highly honored not so long ago, wrote about this in his 1959 book, “Sleepwalkers” in which he chronicles the parade of scientific theories that have been discovered, lauded and discarded.
“The muddle of inspiration and delusion, of visionary insight and dogmatic blindness, of millennial obsessions and disciplined double-think…may serve as a cautionary tale against the hubris of science. … The dials on our laboratory panels are turning into another version of the shadows in the cave [Plato's analogy]. Our hypnotic enslavement to the numerical aspects of reality has dulled our perception of non-quantitative moral values; the resultant end justifies the means ethic may be a major factor in our undoing.”
Surfing the Surface
Concurrent with our descent into matter has come the need for ‘ever-increasing speed’ and ‘ceaseless agitation, for unending change.’ We have become addicted to surface effects. Recent observations, one might say warnings, from Jaron Lanier and Nicholas Carr reveal that surfing the Internet is reconfiguring the human brain. The evidence is conclusive. We are lost in what Guenon back in 1942 called “dispersion in multiplicity, and in a multiplicity that is no longer unified by consciousness of any higher principle.” This external multiplicity is merely the temporal ‘appearance’ generated by the eternal Real, the One substratum beneath all appearances. And yet the best and seemingly the most intelligent are consumed in its quantitative analysis, a bottomless pit of frantic change for its own sake and profit.
Guenon: “…in daily life, as in scientific ideas, it is analysis [of external multiplicity] driven to an extreme, endless subdivision, a veritable disintegration of human activity in all the orders.” Nothing is of value that cannot generate profit, while the wisdom that is born from silent contemplation is ridiculed. Thus we live in an intellectual environment suffused in “the inaptitude for synthesis and the incapacity for any sort of concentration.”
High Frequency Trading
What could be more symptomatic of this dispersion into multiplicity, addiction to speed and what Guenon terms an obsession with ‘instantaneity’ than the recent revelations regarding HFT, high frequency trading in the markets. Michael Lewis’ 2014 best seller ‘Flash Boys’ explains that the process of buying and selling have been transformed into a high speed mechanism in which those with the biggest fastest computers and most sophisticated algorithms will always be winning, the ‘front runners’ over any others. The markets have been rigged by the impenetrable wizardry of the science of algorithms. Sophisticated slight-of-hand advantage smacks of criminality and contributes to the collapse of fragile democracies around the planet, allowing the worst to rape the earth.
Guenon in 1942: “It is therefore to be expected that discoveries, or rather mechanical and industrial inventions, will go on developing and multiplying more and more rapidly…and who knows if, given the dangers of destruction they bear in themselves, they will not be one of the chief agents in the ultimate catastrophe.”
Sovereign Debt Collapse does happen…
As odd as my interest in finance may seem to many, I am convinced that the collapse of our current economic system is indeed ‘one of the chief agents’ in the catastrophic events that occur at the close of any Kali Yuga. Complexity theory expresses the notion that complex systems must inevitably collapse as they become more complex and unstable. We are approaching the edges of instability in the realm of fiat money, sovereign debt default, trillions of dollars in derivatives, and an increasing loss of confidence in the world’s reserve currency. Indeed as many far more knowledgeable and brighter that me have publicly stated, confidence is all that remains between our safe secure world and a complete breakdown of civilisation. Once this ‘confidence’ is gone no one really knows what will follow.
Are we being indoctrinated by the globalists to accept a new reserve currency? The Special Drawing Rights, the SDRs created by the IMF are waiting in the theoretical wings to rescue us from financial chaos and oblivion. But who created this instability? In his most recent book ‘The Death of Money’ James Rickards says that the Federal Reserve does not understand that the recent unlimited printing of trillions of dollars, known as QE quantitative easing, can be a perilously irreversible process. The reckless creation of fiat money (along with now $600 trillion in derivatives) may produce a total loss in confidence not only in the dollar, but also in the financial institutions themselves. Once this loss of confidence occurs, a new system must be created to replace the abandoned one.
This entirely new system, often called the New World Order, will be a planetary financial system which has been in the plan stage for centuries, but now actually appears to be gaining success mostly due to the advances in technology, meaning the global access which computer technology allows. Is this all ‘bad’ as the conspiracy researchers have warned us? Surely there is an argument for a more fair system that does not solely serve only one country.
What worries me is the heinous effects we have already seen that result when corporations are allowed to plunder – (can there be another better description?) – resources in far away lands with impunity. The multinational corporations are poisoning the planet and her oceans. I need not enumerate the plethora of irrefutable evidence, anyone can see the curious disturbing neglect in Fukushima, the consequences of desperate fracking to local water supplies, the obscene greed of GMOs, the insidious ongoing dispersion of endocrine disrupting chemicals EDCs, the insane buying of world water rights, and more. Here clearly we see the results of a loss of individual financial sovereignty and remote control global governance.
While I do recommend that you read James Rickards in online interviews, YouTube, or his books, I have come to believe that his job is to indoctrinate the more financially keen into the IMF’s plan to implement their SDRs and complete control of global finance. In ‘The Death of Money’ Rickards says that when the dollar ceases to be the world reserve currency there are three probabilities: the SDR will replace the USD as world money, the possibility of a gold standard, and the threat of social disorder. I think this threat of social disorder has been carefully inculcated into our consciousness by many bizarre events, which normal peaceful law-abiding citizens have wondered at. Are we being warned? Accept the global system or face the frightening consequences. Anything will be better than lawless mad-max chaos and disorder. But will it?
A done deal?
Rickards says that the substitution of SDRs for dollars as the global currency is now in motion. A ten-year IMF transition plan has been ‘informally endorsed’ by the United States. What? So, we are told this is a done deal. No one has asked the public, there has been no democratic vote, no consensus from we the people. In a rather causal unexpected sentence, Rickards calmly says that money riots would be (his words) ‘squashed quickly’. I see. Resistance is futile indeed. This suppression of money riots is already legal because of a little known legislation passed in 1977, the IEEPA, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. Many of the rather frightening rumours floating around the Internet begin to make sense in light of this impending transition. Follow the money, indeed!
Rickards tell us that the IMF is buying time, some say in desperation. Thus the quantitative easing may go on, but he cautions the reader that the plan for a peaceful transition to SDRs or even gold may not occur before the collapse — and because of the prevalence of high frequency trading, collapse of the financial markets will be likely come flash-crash fast.
Money as Water
Money can be understood as the ‘water’ necessary to business and trade; and financial institutions, banks & bonds, are the conduits through which money flows. Rickards says that the large banks, such as Goldman Sachs will be instrumental in the future distributions of the new planetary reserve currency, the SDRs. Thanks to Mike Taibbi’s courageous journalism, we have fully understood how deserving the Vampire Squid is of our complete trust. James Rickards’ publishing company Portfolio Penguin also happens to have published three books that were finalists for the prestigious Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award.
Edward N. Luttwak explains in ‘The Rise of China vs. the Logic of Strategy‘ that the “highest echelon” of the U.S. Treasury, for example Timothy Franz Geithner, “is staffed almost entirely by former or future employees of the leading financial firms” that are sensitive to Chinese enterprises as future clients. According to Luttwak, these financial power elites have no responsibility for or indeed any intellectual interest in the condition of the U.S. manufacturing sector and the subsequent loss of jobs, which they regarded as “uncompetitive and not worth having” — and their willingness to bend to Chinese demands for the sake of making cheap capital available to private finance, has also allowed a tsunami of technology, including aerospace technology, innovated by American enterprise to be given to the Chinese.
I wish I could believe that all this is a rather benevolent and necessary transition. Certainly the obviously very bright and astute Benn Steil of the Council of Foreign Relations makes rational intelligent calming practical arguments somewhat in favour. Steil is extraordinarily knowledgeable and a wonderful writer. He says many in the USA will not be willing to undermine the US monetary sovereignty. However a lack of confidence in a dollar, which is used globally, will undermine the ability of the Federal Reserve to control interest rates, inflation, and contain any domestic financial crises; and therefore inevitably the power of the FED will decline to the point that the sovereignty of the USA becomes, in his words ‘meaningless’.
Can it be that globalization is something that recurs on all planets in their various stages of social and financial evolution, as they move from tribal & clan, to nation states, to global interests? Yet the question remains: Why allow the destruction of the planet herself, the contamination of her oceans, our fields & land, and the air we breathe? Who turns away from planet Earth’s future for mere profit?
This incessant frantic descent into ever increasing multiplicity and complexity is, as Rene Guenon says, the result of “a pretended intuition modelled on the ceaseless flux of things of the senses, far from being able to serve as an instrument for obtaining true knowledge, represents in reality the dissolution of all possible knowledge.”
An intelligence that has been disconnected from the immutable imperishable substratum that lies beneath ‘the curtain of each atom’ [Mahmud Shabistari's Sufi poem] is necessarily precariously unstable and inclined to collapse. Without metaphysical wisdom, each temporal ‘fix’ our elitist servant PhD’s come up with will only lead us closer to the final moments of this Kali Yuga.
Our sole refuge is a higher consciousness and to individually reconnect with the God essence that dwells within All. Nothing ever dies and as the Bhagavad Gita tells us, ‘The Wise do not grieve.’ Rene Guenon would not have been surprised to witness our current predicament. Guenon offers us one last profound comfort in the final sentence of his brilliant ‘The Reign of Quantity’: “…it can be said in all truth that the ‘end of a world’ never is and never can be anything but the end of an illusion.”
“[We are] made of the same stuff of which events are made…The mind that is parallel with the laws of Nature will be in the current of events, and strong with their strength.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson, from the essay ‘Power’ in “The conduct of Life”
In 1859, when Charles Darwin published his landmark manuscript on the theory of evolution, On the Origin of Species, the book generated a firestorm of controversy and still today the debate between scientists and Creationists seems to be more contentious as ever. According to Darwin’s theory, the basic mechanism of evolution consists of two major components; random mutations and natural selections. And we’re led to believe that all of the magnificent beauty and wonder we see in nature is due to random mutations. The platypus notwithstanding, Mother Nature’s exquisite precision and diversity would appear to be too fine and too staggeringly perfect to be simply relegated to random chance and survival of the fittest.
On the other hand, the original proponents of the Intelligent Design theory were typically theologians who understood that The Book of Genesis couldn’t be considered a scientifically viable explanation for the vast amount of life forms on Earth, but wanted to posit a viable Creationist’s alternative to Darwin’s theory of evolution.
And while Darwinists use science to discredit the story of Adam and Eve and how God created the Universe six thousand years ago, Creationists also have a great deal of scientific evidence that discredits many of the main tenets of Darwin’s original theory. Debunkers of Darwin’s theories are quick to point out mistakes in his overall concept without taking into account that he was a pioneer in his field 165 years ago when he published his book, and, that advances in science have filled in some of those mistakes. But what if both theories are correct, and both are incorrect? In other words, what if there was a unifying theory of evolution that satisfied both camps of thought?
Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, which was published as an entire book under the title of On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life is significantly more comprehensive than just a discourse on natural selection and random mutations. Amongst the many chapters are theories on how microbial life originated on the planet billions of years ago, how land mammals could become whales and dolphins and discussions of a Universal power behind the marriage between science and religion and how The mystery of Mysteries, evolution, follows some sort of cosmic laws.
Of the many controversies surrounding both theories, one of the biggest lingering mysteries is something that neither theory adequately addresses, which is how does the mechanism of animal and plant instincts actually work? From the smallest single celled organism to human beings, there is obviously an incredible amount of intelligence passed along from one generation to the next. Is it possible that this is something that is simply stored in the life form’s DNA or is there something beyond the physical realm that is communicating information to the plant or animal?
One of the most amazing stories about animal instincts is the 7 generation lifespan of a Monarch Butterfly family. Each spring, Monarchs begin the annual migration pattern away from a small mountain range in Mexico and begin their journey up north. Each successive generation flies 400-500 miles, lays eggs and dies. The eggs are hatched, the caterpillars mature and become butterflies, only to carry on the northward flight. Approximately the 7th generation however, eats differently and saves all of it’s energy for the 2500 mile flight back to the very exact same tree their great, great, great, great grandfather left many months earlier. How can this much information, with the precision of a GPS device, be retained after 7 generations of insects no larger than the size of a leaf?
Neither Darwinists nor Intelligent Design proponents can begin to explain the answer to this question using their respective theories. However, researchers like Bruce Lipton in the field of epigenetics and Rupert Sheldrake and his theory of morphogenic fields and many others are beginning to postulate that a component of consciousness is at play here. However, neither of these theories really begins to provide an explanation for how plants and animals have evolved on this planet. And Andre Linde, whose theories regarding the Big Bang were recently validated, has stated that he believes that consciousness will become part of Scientific Law within the next 100 years, paving the way for a unification between science and spirituality.
The bridge between Darwin’s theory of Evolution and the theory of Intelligent Design begins to be constructed when you incorporate the concepts of karma and reincarnation into the overall equation of evolution. Even if you are a non-believer in either karma or reincarnation, the inclusion of the two ideas into the overall mechanism for either theory of how life developed on this planet automatically begins to resolve the question marks. The mystery of how such an incredible amount of diverse and perfect life forms developed on this planet from primitive microbial life starts to be revealed.
According to the science of Vedanta, when a person is conceived, 50% of the impressions on their consciousness come from their parents and 50% come from their previous birth. This explains why children from the same mother and father can have such radically different physical and psychological traits. Of course, this type of equation could never be proven (or more to the point, disproven) using the Modern Scientific Method and so it’s difficult for westerners to move on from here. This intellectual obstacle could also be compared to the square root of negative one, otherwise known as an imaginary number: since no number multiplied by itself can result in a negative number, the square root of any negative number can’t exist, so they are called ‘imaginary’.
However, mathematicians and scientists commonly use imaginary numbers and irrational numbers to solve complex equations which couldn’t possibly be solved any other way. Coincidentally, Schrödinger’s famous Wave Function, which is a centerpiece of Quantum Mechanics, was resolved using the square root of negative one. In much the same way, karma and reincarnation (which some scientists would argue as being irrational) can be used to resolve the complexity of the mechanism behind evolution. Operating under the assumption that half of an organism’s instincts (or karma) comes from their parents and half comes from their previous birth, you can begin to formulate a model that explains how all of brilliantly diverse plant and animal species on Earth has come into existence.
When you stop to consider that it wasn’t random mutations that drove evolutionary change, but rather programmed DNA modifications coming from an epigenetic blueprint based on information stored in the consciousness of the organism from both its previous birth and its parents, you mold a new paradigm of evolution that incorporates some of the Intelligent Design concepts along with Darwin’s theories.
According to Vedanta, the design, the designer and the designed are all one, which implies that there is merit to the Intelligent Design theory but what advocates for the Intelligent Design theory are not factoring in to their position is the idea that the entire cosmic dance has not been an overall design created billions of years ago, but a vibrant and dynamic river of change that is an everlasting intermingling of the seen and the unseen. Between the manifest and the un-manifest.
Today I wish to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that can transition the mind from vibrancy into a banal state of cognitive dissonance. Here we find the shadow of indifference and the trappings of complicity. But what is the path of the slow to awaken, and why should we care?
Their faculties are intact. They certainly seem normal to the casual observer. They may indeed be intelligent and engaging, but something is clearly missing. It’s troubling in a way. Rather frustrating as well. Most of all it is disappointing. The awakening movement has been consistently stymied by those who remain dispassionate about the sobering nature of our reality. These “perennial sleepers” seem to have neither a care nor concern.
In the following paragraphs I invite you to consider the economic principal known as the law of diminishing returns and how it might apply to this situation. At what point do we simply say “enough?” Is it noble to persist in our effort to waken those who prefer to live in the shadow, or are we the fools for trying?
So come saddle up with me and we’ll take a brief journey up a rocky and treacherous pass to a hilltop overlooking the matrix. Here we’ll see how the nets of illusion are held back and fastened to the ground. How easy so it seems— to just simply start cutting tent cords that hold the whole damn circus canopy in place. But those cords are bound not by rope or wire… but by belief— and there’s no knife, razor or ax that can cut through a line woven from the silk of the matrix.
Steeped in the Matrix
From the moment we’re born we are cradled in the matrix. Our loving parents and their parents were also made cozy and warm in this synthetic womb of deception. And so we “adopted” our way of life and defined it as normal. But there’s duplicity in our societal construct. On one side we see the wonderful ways it can be. We see people helping people and it’s a beautiful thing— certainly worthy of defending. But then there are the rogue undercurrents and their operatives that will hold our faces underwater so that we are grateful only for a breath. In this den, one may never know their true potential. The sorcerer rules in this darkness. We’ve already unknowingly relinquished our power through sophisticated methods of mind control, deception and manipulation. And since we ultimately brought it upon ourselves, practitioners of this black magic claim exoneration.
It starts, of course, with our own parents who were products of the matrix. They’ve been condition and groomed in a manner that runs in accordance with the construct. Before one is even old enough to attend school, they’re already versed on the rules and principles that will serve to bind and blind them. Structured education, religious camps, media, drugs and political ideologies will all contribute in fogging the mirror so that they may never see what they truly look like.
But for those who are experiencing an awakening, they’re able to see this construct. They have been called “light workers” among other things and they are indeed a unique group of people. They have been gifted with sight. You are likely one of them. The light worker numbers are growing at a staggering pace. They’re here at a critical juncture, to promote peace and awareness and to take part in the awakening process. Why should one have this sight over another is very difficult to say. It’s downright perplexing to me. But you’re here for a reason— that you can be sure of.
There are many paths that might have led you here. In some cases there were “gateway events” that triggered a response. The light worker was already attuned to a novel vibration. But then they saw things that were shocking to the conscious and they wondered why it had been hidden in the shadow of the matrix. The event is one thing. Hiding it was another. They knew something was terribly amiss and instead of simply letting it go, they continued to ponder for an explanation and researched till their eyes were raw, red and blurry. On their journey even more shocking truths would be unveiled. The strings of the matrix would become more and more apparent with every new discovery. But by far the most profound and dramatic aspect of the rise of the light worker is where they went to find truth.
After experiencing information overload via the internet, books and podcasts, they may have sought religious or spiritual guidance. The information was so troubling they needed someone they could talk to. At the very least they needed loving counsel. But nobody was there to hear their words and share in their pain. Family and friends turned their backs because they could not accept or relate to their views outside the matrix. The budding light worker could no longer trust anything the matrix offered, even if it was verifiably true.
All information coming from the matrix domain feels tainted in some way. The light worker washed themselves from this ubiquitous film and liberated their internal glow. The religious institutions were corrupted, so many resorted to reading the Bible on their own. Then they moved perhaps to other religious doctrines, the Koran or the teachings of Buddha. As a light worker they were no longer bound and felt free to explore any and all ideologies. They began to taste freedom— real freedom. For many, they would begin to seek answers through meditation and prayer. They began to reconnect with nature and attune to her rhythm. Most surprisingly perhaps, they were now attuned to what I like calling the Aether net. They could shift from their place of wonder and into a state of knowing. They would no longer seek CNN or FOX for validation.
This was an exhausting and concentrated effort that came in stages for most. First they were outraged by what they had discovered. Then they were angry and mortified. How could this be? How could society be stitched together with so many ills? But for the love of Humanity they sought answers. This was a heavy burden to carry. Their preoccupation with the horrors of the world would soon affect most every aspect of their life, from family relations to being able to concentrate at work. That’s what a “shift” really feels like. I know the readers of this website understand.
But now there’s the guy on the couch pushing the buttons on his remote as he attunes himself to the daily program of the matrix. Is he a bad guy for not wanting to listen? -Probably not. Are they dismissive because they really don’t want to know or is there something more sinister afoot? Is it because the message is coming from “you” and perhaps they don’t think so highly of you? -Just a thought. But it’s probably more fundamental than that. It’s been said rather eloquently, “it’s easy to fool someone, but it’s much harder to convince someone they’ve been fooled.” This bit of wisdom may put the best light on the problem.
Law of Diminishing Returns
Economic models are often quite effective in measuring the relative equity of a situation. According to at least one definition; “the law of diminishing returns is a classic economic concept that states that as more investment in an area is made, overall return on that investment increases at a declining rate. To continue making an investment after a certain point is to receive a decreasing return on that input.”
The dilemma I present to you is whether one should continue to apply the same effort on those that are no longer capable or willing to listen? Is there a point where we say fine—you go your way, I’ll go mine. Readers of my previous posts may know I’m no friend of those instruments that serve to divide us. But I’m beginning to wonder if that’s not inevitable. In actuality, this has already been happening.
Those who embrace spirituality understand rules of equity. One seeks balance and harmony in all things. Sometimes balance can’t be achieved and so we either change ourselves or change what’s around us. Either way it places a fork in the road. The intrepid light worker will continue on their journey and might only on occasion look back in the rearview mirror as they move onward. I’m quite sure this is beginning to manifest. It’s no longer, for instance, about pointing to a chemtrail and asking another if they see it. Well, they might “see” it but they don’t “get” it. They simply shrug their shoulders and walk away and look at you as if you’re some kind of nutter.
Well my brothers, go ahead and walk away. There is too much going on to continue trying to convince you of anything. Because you see it’s not just about the spraying of the atmosphere, the proliferation of GMO’s, toxic governments and corporations or false flag operations. It’s about so much more. And if you do not understand the basics by now, then you’re sure not going to get the higher level stuff. And so for those who keep shoving their TV remote controller up my nose hoping to shut me off, don’t worry cause I’m already gone. The road for me has divided.
Let ‘Em Sleep
That’s my resolve. There will be others that will not agree with this, and I want you to know you have my full respect and gratitude. For those who choose to remain in the trenches and endure the volley of fire will most certainly suffer as a result. But they are perhaps the quintessential light workers. As for me I’ve chosen to move on from those who will not listen. I have found the experience draining and toxic to my psyche. In other words, I’ve had enough!
And so I say, let ‘em sleep. Perhaps a dream will waken them, perhaps not. And even now should one shows signs of waking— is it too little too late? There’s a lot of catching up to do. Who’s going to hold their hand through it all? So what is their fate? Perhaps it’s their dilemma. Many of us are simply moving on—not because we wanted to, but because it is now our time.
There is so much more to this awakening process. Not only are we conditioned and groomed under the whip of mother matrix, but we’ve been chemically assaulted and altered along the way. Is it too late for those that have dropped their spiritual sword and armor? Did the fluoride finally calcify the last tiny recess of their pineal? Did the multiple flu vaccinations finally take their toll? How could they not see that which was so clearly in front of them? How?
And so there is a weight that needs to be lifted. The collective impact of the sleepers has been punishing. Do they not care about the horrors of war, the plight of the whistleblower or the breakaway reporter who was willing to risk their career, life and limb for breaking a critical story? The sleepers have been repeatedly shown data that should have compelled them to investigate matters further. Maybe they do care—but they’re not ready to face it.
I understand there are many truths that are not easy to swallow and impossible to digest, but what is the cost of ignorance? To Mr. Remote Control man, the dandelion growing through the cracks of the asphalt is just another weed. Monsanto makes a great product to take care of that. You see, you need to kill it from the root, they say. And that’s exactly what they would love to do with this awakening.
Anyway, I mentioned the trail would be rocky and treacherous at times and so my warning had some merit. Was the trip worthwhile? We’ve rode to a place where the sage is thick and sweet and where the wind whispers through the mesquite and ironwood. And here the setting Sun sets the western sky ablaze and somewhere in the twilight fade, a flicker and moment of truth comes forth. For those that can hear these gentle vibrations will always find their way back home. They are the seekers of truth.
-Until next time
“We stumble on; the Übermensch plants a foot where there is no certain hold; and in the struggle that follows, the whole of us get dragged up.” –William James
Friedrich Nietzsche is a fascinating philosopher that must be taken with a grain of salt, and possibly the entire salt shaker. But he is an absolute joy to read, for his audacity alone. And his ruthlessness was no joke. Knocking gods off pedestals was second nature to him. With merciless glee, he stormed in where other philosophers feared to tread. Through poetic prose, brutal honesty, and venomous wit, he brought us a way of thinking that still has people’s brains doing backflips in their heads and their hearts doing somersaults in their chest. A God-fearing man probably couldn’t get through a single paragraph of Nietzsche without collapsing into a fit of: “Blasphemy!” this and “Satan incarnate!” that. Not realizing that there is gold gleaming in the darkness of his words and unaware that his surfaced soul is a brilliant diamond shining in the rough texture of his prose. So in honor of that God-fearing man pitifully writhing on the floor, and with a healthy dose of mockery, here are four fascinating ways that Master Nietzsche made God his bitch.
1.) Anti-Christ Superstar
“One must not let oneself be misled: they say ‘Judge not!’ but they send to Hell everything that stands in their way.” –Friedrich Nietzsche
Nietzsche was the original Antichrist. He wrote the book on it, literally. The Anti-Christ was a smash-mouth, no-holds-barred grudge match between Nietzsche and Christianity. And Nietzsche came out of it with nary a scratch, while all of Christianity lay bleeding and bruised at his blasphemous feet. For decades fundamentalist Christians reeled from the merciless body-blows dealt by the tiny book that made the bible look like the Goliath to its David. Of course the Christians were eventually able to incorporate it all into their religion while conveniently ignoring this and expediently hiding that, and so the blind-faith machine rolled on, but they inadvertently spread Nietzsche’s gospel rather than squashed it, and so it is still very much alive today.
Some of the more delicious morsels in Nietzsche discourse were as follows: he spoke of the Christian God as a “… declaration of war against life, against nature, against the will to live.” Proclaiming that the Christian God was “… the sanctification of the will to nothingness!” and “…this entire fictional world has its roots in the hatred of the natural (—actuality!—).” Nietzsche opposed the Christian concept of God because it “…degenerated into the contradiction of life, instead of being life’s transfiguration and eternal ‘Yes’!” He declared that the Christian God was “… the sanctification of the will to nothingness!” Wow! Put that in your invisible pipe and smoke it, God.
2.) God is dead!
“Whither is God? … I will tell you. We killed him –you and I. All of us are his murderers… What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festival of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it? There has never been a greater deed; and whoever is born after us – for the sake of this deed he will belong to a higher history than all history hitherto.” –Nietzsche, Parable of the Madman
With this bold declaration Nietzsche reached skyward, pulled God from his celestial throne, and in one fell swoop declared the now earth-laden body a corpse, bringing down with it the entire apparatus of institutional Christianity. Talk about audacious. It’s especially daring when you consider the religious atmosphere during the time when he lived. The man’s insouciance knew no bounds. He called it like he saw it, peer pressure be damned.
Later in the text of the Parable of the Madman, Nietzsche’s protagonist visits various churches saying nothing but: “What after all are these churches now if they are not the tombs and sepulchers of God?”
3.) The Übermensch
Behold, I teach you the overman. Man is something that shall be overcome. What have you done to overcome him?.. What is the ape to man? A laughingstock or a painful embarrassment. And man shall be just that for the overman: a laughingstock or a painful embarrassment…” –Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
The Übermensch, or overman, is Nietzsche’s cosmopolitan vision of human excellence, his epistemological elite. In many ways he is the replacement for God, the courageously moral substitute for the pitiful decadence of the Christian deity. A self-actualized, fully individuated, enlightened master prepared to take on all comers.
More importantly, the overman has the power to pull the head of man out of the clouds and bring it down to earth. Nietzsche goes on to say, “The Übermensch is the meaning of the earth… I beseech you, my brothers, remain faithful to the earth, and do not believe those who speak to you of otherworldly hopes,” and, “Once the sin against God was the greatest sin; but God died, and these sinners died with him. To sin against the earth is now the most dreadful thing…”
It’s almost as if Nietzsche foresaw the environmental calamity of our time, heralding the call of the overman for a future time when he would be needed to get us back in touch with Mother Nature, and to reconnect the severed umbilicus before it’s too late.
“In so far as the word “knowledge” has any meaning, the world is knowable; but it is interpretable otherwise, it has no meaning behind it, but countless meanings.—Perspectivism.” –Nietzsche, The Will to Power
Perspectivism implies that no way of seeing the world can be taken as absolutely true. But it does NOT necessarily entail that all perspectives are equally valid (and so should not be confused with relativism). With this idea Nietzsche didn’t necessarily make God his bitch, but he did create a good tripwire to trip him up with. For if everybody has a different perception of the concept of God, however minute that difference, then God can never just be one almighty being we can all agree on, it can only ever be a smeared-out energy, at best; an idea or a conceptualization, never a definitive truth.
Nietzsche wants us to be honest with ourselves, and then with each other, about the fact that we are all interconnected, while at the same time we all have our own personal experiences. There are over 7 billion people on this planet, and every single one of us has a different psycho-physiological reaction to any given stimuli. Our “reactions” to things are as unique as our own fingerprints. If I say the word “fork” it creates a different psycho-physiological reaction (however minute) in you than it does in me, than it does in her, than it does in him. We all have different experiences, different memories, different ideas, regarding the concept of “fork,” even though we can all agree that we’re looking at a fork. The same thing applies to everything: a spoon, a tree, the concept of love, even the concept of God. In the end, we just need to be brutally honest with each other: we’re our own gods. But, as Nietzsche warned, “Against boredom even gods struggle in vain.”
“Time is just a construct of the universe to keep everything from happening all at once.” - John Archibald Wheeler
John Archibald Wheeler was one of the physics giants of the 20th century, and was a colleague of Einstein’s. But what if everything is happening all at once? Moreover, what if there is no time at all?
I recently saw a description of the universe as it is perceived in physics. To quote William Brown (not to be confused with the William Brown who works with The Resonance Project):
“What science has discovered in exploring deeper levels of reality is that our universe is structured in layers of creation. Layers of creation, from the superficially diverse macroscopic classic world of day-to-day perceptions, to the deeper levels, the molecules, the atoms, and the nucleus, and sub-nuclear particles, worlds within worlds within worlds.”
He succinctly explains these levels as such:
“So the surface level of sensory reality is typically called the classical world. Underlying the classic world is the world of the molecules, the atoms, which is the realm of quantum mechanics. Then there’s the atomic nucleus and the sub-nuclear particles; that’s the world of quantum field theory, relativistic quantum mechanics. And finally the emergence of unified field theory …” (Source: William Brown: The Light Body)
So that leads us to our main question…
What Is Time?
“A colleague of Einstein, physicist John Archibald Wheeler, developed one of the first equations of quantum gravity in the early days of the unification of Relativity and Quantum Theory. Although it works, it does not incorporate time as a physical parameter, and physicists find this unsettling…
“When General Relativity was first quantized (becoming a theory of quantum gravity) in the 1960’s by John Wheeler, the result predicted a static state of the Universe, that is – no change, i.e. timelessness. This particular solution to the quantization of General Relativity is known as the Wheeler-DeWitt equation. The result seemed to be paradoxical – because how can the Universe be static and unchanging – when our every experience is of change.” – William Brown from the Resonance Project Foundation
That is precisely the question we shall be exploring, and maybe answering in this article. It is interesting to note that the predictions of the equations that are generally accepted by the scientific establishment suggest both that time is an illusion, and that the universe is in fact static. Obviously these ideas were regarded as flawed because they did not hold up against the facts, i.e. what is clearly observable in the universe. We see change every day, and we can measure time, therefore they must be true.
But what if we could change our perception of the universe and resolve this conflict? What if there is no such thing as time in the universe and it is actually just the result of a shift in perspective of sorts within a static universe which in some way does not result in motion or a changing universe either? To explore this idea we must first seek to discover what motion really is.
Is Anything Really Moving?
In Deepak Chopra’s phenomenal book How to Know God, he shares an explanation of the quantum level of the universe. Moreover, this is a definite observation of the universe through the scientific study of the quantum level of reality. He states:
“At the quantum level the whole cosmos is like a blinking light.
There are no stars or galaxies, only vibrating energy fields.”
Nassim Haramein explained this to me best. He said that what we perceive as motion is really due to the fact that reality is flashing in and out of existence at a high frequency, and that creation is actually disappearing and reappearing, oscillating between form and formlessness at the quantum level innumerable times every second giving the appearance of motion.
Therefore technically things do not move in this universe at all, but appear and disappear in slightly different patterns giving the appearance of motion. It is not the unified field itself that is blinking, only that which we perceive as solid matter - i.e. particles, nuclei, sub-atomic particles, and the material world.
In some ways it might technically be more accurate to call what we are doing every day as micro-teleportation. As we walk in the grocery store or drive in our cars we are actually teleporting forwards at absurdly tiny increments, yet at an extremely high frequency to give the appearance of motion.
Yet this motion is only occurring perceptually on the lowest energetic levels of creation: the material world, or the classical world we exist in for the majority of the day, and potentially the atomic and molecular level of reality. For this level, just like our level, singular celled organisms might have the experience of continuity of form just like we do in our physical bodies. I do not know for sure, for I do not recall being a single cell, but until we know for certain we can rule nothing out.
So, on the quantum theoretical level of reality there really is no motion, but a flashing in and out of existence of creation, yet from our level it appears like fluid motion. Just like the people on our television screen are not actually moving, but it is the little pixels which flash on and off in coordination with one another so it looks like motion.
This could actually give us insight into why there is no such thing as time.
The Flow of the Unified Field
If we perceive the universe from the level of the unified field, imagine that the unified field contains everything, and that all of creation and all of the past and future is holographically encoded within the unified field, and that all exists simultaneously, encoded within the structure of the vacuum.
In other words, creation arose out of this unified field in the form of subatomic particles, particles, atoms, and electrons, and nuclei, which are all just a form of condensed energy – formless energy condensed into form as the universe flashes in and out of existence, but nothing is solid. To quote Einstein again:
“What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”
And these manifestations of energy collaborate with one another, guided by some unseen force within creation itself, to form larger things that give every appearance of being real, and every appearance of being completely solid, but we know now that this is not true.
Imagine that everything exists at once. Imagine that all versions of the tree outside your window from the present moment, to the birth of the tree, and all the way into the apparent future to the death of the tree exist encoded within space and time, holographically present within the unified field.
Therefore nothing in reality ever appears, disappears, moves, or even changes, it is merely our perception of reality at this level which gives the appearance of change. In other words, all reality, all time, and all motion is merely the result of consciousness in motion.
If the fluid dynamics of Nassim’s black whole theory are correct, and if these dynamics are in fact the origin of consciousness, then this is the foundation of creation, and we discover the foundation of creation to be a formless collapse into itself and corresponding creation.
Yet this is not motion in the physical world. In fact, there is no motion in the physical world. This has been proven to us by quantum physicists when they discovered that reality is flashing in and out of existence. There are only holographic images which change as the consciousness expands and contracts into itself.
So what if the flow of the unified field within the universe is itself the mechanism which causes reality to flash in and out of existence, and moreover which determines the flow of time? This means also that all consciousness is an extension of universal consciousness – the unified field – and that as the unified field expands and contracts all other consciousness is brought along for the ride, and because we are perceiving from the material level of reality we enjoy front row seats to the holograms of creation changing as new levels of the unified field become visible to us as a result of our shift in perception, and the desires of consciousness.
All of creation and all activity in creation is the result of consciousness interacting within consciousness, creating consciousness, and only because we all share a common consensus of reality (for the most part) does time arise at all on our planet.
Holographically Encoded Information
The easiest and clearest way that I can describe this concept would be to use the analogy of a holographic image. You may have seen holographic images of a galaxy or some other image printed on a sheet of plastic or a card. I’m sure many of you have seen these, if not, this analogy will not do much for you. Anyways, say you have the picture of a galaxy on the card (or whatever image you have seen) and it appears to be stationary, yet as you shift your perspective (i.e. rotate or move the card) the galaxy appears to rotate.
Nothing changed in the image. All the information was there and encoded within the card from the very beginning, but because you changed your perspective the image gave the appearance of motion. What if this is how reality works? What if the motion and the apparent time we experience is merely the result of our perspective on creation due to our level of consciousness?
Observe from the fundamental level of creation, the unified field. The unified field is the vacuum structure which is theoretically expanding and collapsing through Nassim Haramein’s black whole dynamics, but it is not technically moving. And nothing else in reality is moving either, because everything is fixed, crystallized, and holographically encoded within the vacuum structure which means that everything is non-locally present everywhere, and everything is happening at once.
And as the foundation of creation collapses and expands in these black whole dynamics, which theoretically are the origin of consciousness, that creates a shift in perspective for all consciousness that is present in the higher levels of reality (the quantum field up to the classical – us) on the hologram of reality and thus we get the appearance of motion, of cyclic change, and thus of time. But as we know, reality is blinking in and out of existence, theoretically as a result of consciousness changing perspective as it would have to do if there was no motion in the universe, if the universe was timeless and static.
Time Is Relative
It is my contention that all of time is the result of the rotation of consciousness at the level of the unified field, and that time is completely relative determined by its own perceptual location and scalar dimension (level of consciousness) with which it observes reality from. Time would be perceived differently on Mars than on Earth because the length of its days are different according to the rotation of its own black whole (unified field dynamics producing/being produced by consciousness), and the length of its year would be different according to where it is in the Suns expanding and collapsing dynamics of consciousness.
Moreover, physicist are relatively certain that time itself is relative, and this is why. Time is not a phenomenon that arises all on its own in the universe. There is potentially no such thing as time at all, as their equations suggest. What we call time is an arbitrary division of the cycles we are experiencing based off of the cyclical rate of change that we are experiencing on this level of reality.
In other words, it is merely a matter of perception. If we were in a void there would be no time because not only would there be no cycles to gauge time by, but there would be no objects to determine motion with. Therefore we would be in perpetual stillness and timelessness. Proof that time is a perceptual construct we have devised which is completely based on our perception, and thus illusory, can be observed in a story that was told by Deepak Chopra.
In his lecture series with Wayne Dyer entitled Living Beyond Miracles, he tells the story of a group of miners who had one of their mines cave in on them in Germany, and they were trapped underground for an extended period of time. No light, no way of judging the cycles of the universe, and thus no frame of reference for their perception. There were a total of 7 men who were trapped underground, and yet only one of them had a watch.
The man with the watch didn’t want things to get out of hand while they were trapped underground, and to ease the fear and worry of his friends the man with the watch took it upon himself to call out that 1 hour had passed every time 2 hours had passed, and because nobody else had a watch to validate this, they couldn’t tell the difference.
As it turns that at the end of 7 days they were rescued and everybody survived except for the man with the watch. Because he took it upon himself to call out that 1 hour had passed when in reality, according to his watch, 2 hours had passed, he essentially slowed down time for everyone else, and got them to change their agreement on time itself so that they perceived they were stuck underground for half the amount of time that they really were underground for.
“He had them change their collective agreement as to what constituted time, it’s an agreement. And then they aged accordingly and he couldn’t fool himself because he had a watch.”
A Static Universe
“The Tao does not act
yet it is the root of all action.
The Tao does not move
yet it is the source of all creation.”
- Lao Tzu
We have established that creation isn’t moving, well, it appears that the unified field is not moving either. We know this because we have found that the space surrounding our Earth which was once thought to be whooshing past us, like the air past an object in a wind tunnel, has now been shown to be completely stationary. We are not hurtling through space as we thought, space itself is expanding and contracting, and thus it is not moving per say, but giving the appearance of motion.
Because the unified field, which is consciousness, is expanding and contracting, and because we are that consciousness incarnated in a slightly denser level of reality, in the classical world, we get front row seats to the apparent change, motion, and time of reality. But that is only because we are universal consciousness, as all the ancient traditions assert, which has condensed into this level of reality to experience the changing world, the world of things. Of life, death, birth, and rebirth, and of linear time.
Our only hang up is that we have become attached to this world and we have become caught up in an energetic (emotional turmoil) as things apparently die, and change, and are transient. Yet everything – every creature, your worst enemy, your best friend, and you – at the deepest level is the unified field and that is why we experience this change: because the fundamental level of who we are is perpetually radiating and collapsing back in on itself in an infinite feedback loop causing the holographic world to flicker and change before us like a beautiful, infinitely intricate, and magnificent movie played just for us.
Yet even the rate of this movie is not fixed. It is relative as Einstein stated, because when we have increased energy and have the exhilaration of new love, or the unbridled passion and enthusiasm which arises when we engage in following and living our dreams, we tap into higher energy which brings us closer to the unified field and thus the rate of time noticeably speeds up according to our own perception. As the old adage goes, “time flies when you’re having fun.”
What Determines Creation Within A Conscious Universe?
Again to quote Albert Einstein, he observed:
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality that you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics.”
This quote also helps explain the mechanism behind the apparent change we see in creation. As the evidence suggests (in our daily lives and in physics) and as Nassim Haramein’s theories are based on, all things are scalar divisions of the same geometries and dynamics, and thus everything has consciousness, because everything is consciousness.
Not everything operates at the level of consciousness that human beings do, i.e. free will, and even among human beings there are gradients of consciousness. But everything does have consciousness because at the level of the unified field which all emanates from, we are all infinite consciousness. And as consciousness we have desires and intentions which channel through us from that infinite consciousness. In my own life I call this inspiration, or even creativity and co-creation. In every case I can feel it coming through me, but I know it is not me alone who is doing the creating.
All consciousness has these inspirations and these desires, and in essence they are all the same: to experience the bliss and the ecstasy of co-creation. We love to create, and we do it with unbridled passion and intuition, all leading towards illumination and understanding of ourselves, and thus of reality. This is what all consciousness does – radiates (creates) and then moves back towards itself through creation.
The Earth desired to create a beautiful and magnificent garden that was vibrantly alive, and thus her consciousness attracted that out of the holographic field of information with the same mechanism that Einstein was talking about. And we experience change on Earth because we are experiencing the expansion and collapse of the Earths consciousness falling back in on itself as her cycles of creation ebb and flow like the tides. She is creating in harmony with the solar consciousness cycles, and each one of us are experiencing our own cycles of manifestation and experience, in accordance with all others, providing us with a rich sensory experience of motion, of time, and of creation – all the result of the impetuous desire of consciousness on all levels to create and experience creation.
All is the result of the intentions of consciousness to create and to experience its creations, and it is that desire which creation emanates from in the first place. The unified field chose to manifest itself on this level of reality to experience the bliss of a bird in flight; the joy of jumping through the waves as a dolphin; and soaring like an eagle; united in blissful union as lovers do; and spiraling in ecstasy as a galaxy.
There is no motion, or time, just the experience of perceptually passing through the holographic manifestations of the unified field, a perceptual motion created by the expansion and contraction of consciousness on all levels. The universe is an infinite hologram, and we are just passing through and the image appears to be changing, but it is not. We are just seeing what was encoded all along as we eternally shift our perspective.
This may be the reason why the little photons in the entanglement experiment (cited in William Brown’s article Got Change for a Paradigm? New Experiment Shows How Time May Emerge from Quantum Entanglement) experience time in relation to one another, but not to the observer. Because the unified field is still shifting its perspective, it is still flowing which causes reality to flash in and out of existence meaning that the photons in the experiment are flashing in and out of existence and thus we calculate that they change, and we call this time.
Whereas we and our devices are not subtle enough to see what they see and feel what they feel from their level, compounded even more because many of us do not fully understand that all things are vibrantly alive, and that everything is us and we are everything. The qualities which we ourselves possess must then be available within everything. Notably, the desire for life.
It is ironic that we are the only species who waste time desiring it, while we resist actually living it.
For what would we have to experience if the atomic levels of consciousness did not desire to create? To create a holographic interference pattern with their electrons in order to have certain perceivable qualities when gathered, and to mix and create with other atoms? And what would we experience if the Earth did not create with those atoms beautiful trees and plants, and oceans and rain all within her cycles of consciousness? And what would we have to experience if a galaxy didn’t desire to create planets? And where would anything be if the unified field didn’t expand and collapse into itself in a primordial desire to experience itself, to be, and to engage in blissful co-creation?
Our issues arise in life when we start to believe that we are the material world; when we start to believe that we are these things which we possess, and the things that we achieve. For the levels of creation also have a counterpart within human consciousness and within our mind.
On the surface we have the ego which believes that it is your possessions, achievements, and what you do. Then you have the gradients of thoughts that exist within the ego in a scale from fearful all of the way to loving thoughts. These all exists within your mind and within your ego. But you are more than you know.
Between your thoughts is a silence which is the unified field, and when you become that silence, you become the unified field, and you become universal. Through the practice of non-attachment, and meditation, all of your troubles disappear because you cease to cling to the changing illusion of reality and you become free to experience what you always will be: pure, infinite, and universal consciousness.
All things already exist encoded holographically within the unified field, the structure of space-time, and it is conscious intention which determines that which is accessed and chosen to be perceived due to its own intentions. Nothing new is created, for it is already present within the field. And it is the highest level of our consciousness which guides us in the manifestation process we call life. We are all expression of the universe, looking back on itself as Nassim would say, and experiencing all possibilities within creation with our unique and individual intentions.
All that you want out of life is encoded within the field. Your intentions and your perception is what determines what you see and what you experience. In the words of Wayne Dyer, “There’s no place that God is not. If this God-force is everywhere, then it must be in you. And if it’s everywhere, then it must be in all that you perceive to be missing from your life as well.”
In closing, I believe this understanding of reality I have described here is exactly what this brilliant poet was experiencing when he wrote these beautiful words:
“To see the world in a grain of sand,
and heaven in a wild flower.
To hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
and eternity in an hour.
We are led to believe a lie,
when we see with, not through, the eye,
which was born in a night, to die in a night,
while the soul slept in beams of light.”
- William Blake
Lynn Picknett & Clive Prince, New Dawn Waking Times
Stephen Hawking famously ended his 1988 bestseller A Brief History of Time with the statement that, if and when physics finds its long-sought grand unified field theory “we would know the mind of God.”1 Although since then he has reportedly regretted the phrase, and famously announced in 2010 that “God did not create the universe,” his original statement was – knowingly or not – in fact simply a repetition of the underlying quest of the historical scientific revolution.
All its great pioneers, from Copernicus to Newton, were motivated by the passionate belief that by discovering the way the universe works they were not only uncovering God’s design, but also taking humankind closer to the divine. Science was for them primarily a spiritual quest. And, given the evidence, that’s precisely what it should be now.
Despite rather desperately cowering behind the wall of strident rationalism most of them are famous for, the startling truth is that cosmologists and quantum physicists themselves have revealed that the mind of God may be much nearer than we think. Science itself has effectively proven that ours is not a random universe. Science itself has demonstrated it was literally designed for life, which implies a designer… But as science itself – in general – is rather backward in coming forward about this, permit us to explain.
The sensational conclusion that the universe appears to be meant began to be formulated with the famous ‘anthropic principle’ brought to the attention of the scientific community at the end of the 1970s by the seminal Nature paper by British cosmologists Bernard Carr and Martin Rees. The latter, now Lord Rees – Astronomer Royal and President of the Royal Society until 2010 – recently attracted the disdain of many colleagues by accepting the annual million-pound Templeton Foundation prize awarded for an “outstanding contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension.” Quite something for a mainstream scientist – and of course hugely controversial.
The Designer Universe
At its most basic, the anthropic principle states that all the cosmological data shows the laws of physics are, to an uncanny degree, exactly the ones needed for a bio-friendly universe. According to Paul Davies’ book The Goldilocks Enigma (2006) conditions are, like her porridge, “just right” for organic life. It needs precisely our kind of universe: relatively stable, with galaxies and stars – and this was by no means inevitable: if things were even slightly different matter could never have coalesced, or the universe would be riddled with black holes, preventing the formation of heavenly bodies. Life requires certain chemical elements, primarily carbon, which need stars to manufacture them and disperse them in their supernovae explosions. It also needs planets where the building blocks can be assembled for living beings to develop.
All this requires not only fundamental particles and energies to possess particular values, but the relationships between them must be very precise. Carr and Rees noted that for almost every variation of the physical laws, a bio-friendly universe would be impossible. Yet as Hawking writes, “a series of startling coincidences” make the laws of physics “a system that is extremely fine-tuned” to produce conditions propitious for life.2 Freeman Dyson, the British-born American physicist, writes that there are “numerical accidents that seem to conspire to make the universe habitable,”3 while Paul Davies notes the “ingenious and seemingly contrived ways”4 the laws of physics allow the creation and dispersal of the elements necessary for life – and that we appear to live in a “designer universe.”
More astoundingly, as all the values were ‘set’ by the big bang – if the conditions at the start of the universe had been say, bigger and bangier or smaller and less bangy (sorry for the technical terms), the physical laws would also be different – then life seems to have been an integral part of the design from the very beginning.
One of the first examples of the fine-tuning to be recognised, back in the 1950s, is the formation of carbon – quintessential to organic life – which like all except the simplest three elements is forged in the centre of stars. However, scientists had long realised that according to conventional wisdom, carbon shouldn’t exist at all (or if it did it should be extremely rare). Even the vast temperatures and pressure in stars shouldn’t produce enough energy for stable atoms to form. But we now know there is a lucky fluke – a quantum effect known as resonance – which produces a ‘spike’ that enormously amplifies the energy to exactly the right value. This only happens for carbon.
The scientist who worked out the process, the maverick British astronomer and mathematician Fred Hoyle, was so astonished by the coincidence that he famously described it as a “put-up job.” In a 1957 lecture he observed:
If this was a purely scientific problem and not one that touched on the religious problem, I do not believe that any scientist who examined the evidence would fail to draw the inference that the laws of nuclear physics have been deliberately designed with regard to the consequences they produce inside the stars. If this is so, then my apparently random quirks have become part of a deep-laid scheme. If not then we are back again at a monstrous sequence of accidents.5
The most recently-discovered example of fine tuning is perhaps the most compelling. This relates to ‘vacuum energy,’ a force arising from ‘virtual particles’ that fill even empty interstellar space, and which has a profound effect on the universe, since it determines its rate of expansion and this in turn determines how life-friendly it is. If the universe was expanding too quickly, then gravity would be unable to build galaxies, planets and stars; if too slowly, then all matter would be pulled back to the ‘big crunch’ before life had time to evolve. Obviously, our universe is expanding within that critically narrow range that allows it to be bio-friendly. But only recently has it been discovered how narrow – indeed, wafer-thin – that range is.
It all hangs on the rate of expansion, determined by the balance between the negative and positive energy of the virtual particles. In the mid-1990s, based on new improved data from the Hubble Space Telescope and other sources, cosmologists were finally able to calculate the balance. It turns out that the negative energy cancels out all but an infinitesimal amount of the positive – all but 10120 (that’s 119 zeroes after the decimal point and before the 1).
But the scary thing is that if this number was just one decimal place shorter – 10119 – then the universe would be expanding too quickly: there would be no stars and no planets. That tiny decimal place is the difference between life and no-life. The leading American theoretical physicist Leonard Susskind wrote: “This seems like an absurd accident and we have no idea why it should happen. There is no fine-tuning quite like this in the rest of physics.”6 Nobel prize-winning theoretical physicist Steven Weinberg commented in 1993 that if the extraordinary balancing act of the vacuum energy was confirmed then, “it will be reasonable to infer that our own existence plays an important part in explaining why the universe is the way it is,” but went on, “For what it is worth, I hope that this is not the case.”7 Unfortunately for Weinberg, it has since been confirmed. It is the case.
It’s rather like winning the lottery (we assume). If our numbers come up we might think we’re clever or destined to win but of course it would be just chance. Not so long ago astrophysicists assumed that’s how it was with life: the right conditions just happened by accident. But the anthropic principle has shown that the game appears to have been fixed – as if only our numbers went into the machine. We couldn’t lose. In fact, the ‘coincidences’ involved in the universal fine tuning are so vast it’s more like winning the lottery week after week for several years.
Of course this was unthinkable for most scientists – after all, design implies a designer – so they desperately searched for a get-out clause. Susskind duly came up with the now-ubiquitous multiverse as a way out of the anthropic conundrum: the theory that there are really billions – perhaps an infinity – of universes, each with its own physical laws (since conditions at the big bang were different for each one). The vast majority don’t possess life, but because we live in one of the few that does, we are mistakenly over-impressed by the coincidence that it is spot on for us.
The multiverse hypothesis turns the virtually improbable into the inevitable. This time it’s like entering our lottery numbers into several billion games simultaneously. We’re bound to scoop the jackpot at least once. The multiverse allowed scientists uncomfortable with the implications of the anthropic principle to breathe a sigh of relief.
There is, however, a major problem with the multiverse – and its exotic brother theories, string and M. There’s not a shred of evidence for any of it. Ironically it’s a fundamental aspect of the multiverse that there can never be any, since interaction between universes is by definition impossible. Which also conveniently makes the theory impossible to disprove. As Carr wrote in 2007, the multiverse “is highly speculative and… currently untestable. Indeed, it may always remain so…”8
It gets worse. Being untestable means it violates one of science’s cardinal rules – that any hypotheses should be capable of being tested by experiment or observation. At best the multiverse is an interesting speculation, a possible but unprovable answer to the conundrum of the anthropic principle. But the majority of physicists take it as the answer to their prayers. If indeed they ever admit to praying.
It’s easy to understand why. Hawking, for example, has acknowledged it’s a straight choice between intelligent design (begging the awkward question of the designer) and the multiverse.9 Naturally he champions the latter, as do most of his colleagues, keen to look cool and cutting-edge, and beguiled by the seduction of endless equations – even if by definition they can never lead anywhere or prove anything.
The Anti-Science of the Multiverse
One of the key principles of every other area of science is that it is contingent, the consensus at any time being based on the best data, but with the underlying acknowledgement that future discoveries may lead to major revisions. But here we have hard data pointing directly to a designer universe – and yet the overwhelming majority of scientists prefer to accept the entirely speculative and untestable multiverse, just because one day they might find a way of proving it. In other words, they accept it on faith, their belief in a non-designed universe blinding them to the overwhelming evidence for one that is obviously designed, and that science itself now points to.
The anthropic principle has been conceptually divided between the ‘weak’ version (the universe appears to be designed for intelligent life, but this is an illusion) and the ‘strong’ version (the universe appears to be designed for us because it is). Enter the American John Archibald Wheeler (1926-2008), one of the most eminent modern theoretical physicists, discoverer of black holes and originator of the concept of space-time wormholes, who came up with a new spin: the “participatory anthropic principle.”
Wheeler developed the concept as the logical extrapolation of another weird aspect of quantum physics, the implications of which few other physicists have dared explore. It is accepted that by observing events at the quantum level they will inevitably be changed by the act of observation. The outcome of a particular experiment often depends on how the experimenter chooses to make the observation – in effect theyassign particular values to a subatomic particle.
This is seen most famously in the ‘double slit experiment’, where the experimenter can ‘choose’ whether a beam of light behaves as a particle or a wave even when only a single photon is involved. Bizarre though it might seem, a fundamental principle of quantum theory is that the photon does not take a single path, but takes every possible path simultaneously. They exist as a series of probabilities (‘wave functions’), and only when an observation is made does the wave function ‘collapse’ and the photon take a specific position. As Wheeler declared (his emphasis): “Each photon is governed by laws of probability and behaves like a cloud until it is detected… The act of measurement is the transforming act that collapses uncertainty into certainty.”10 On a much wider scale, every particle in the universe exists as a wave function, ‘waiting’ to be given specific values by being observed.
Wheeler showed that it wasn’t just a question of the experimenter determining through observation how a particle behaves now. In the double-slit experiment choosing how the photon is observed after it has passed through the slit produces the same effect. The observer effectively chooses how the particle behaved in the past – maybe only microseconds ago, but in the past nevertheless (‘backward causation’).
Initially Wheeler’s proposal could only be a thought experiment as the technology allowing a choice to be made in the infinitesimally small period while a photon is in ‘flight’ wasn’t available. But in 2006 a French team devised a method of experimenting for real. Wheeler was proved right.
He then realised the same effect could be obtained if light from a distant star was involved, but the observer on Earth would be ‘choosing’ how a photon behaved when it set out on its journey thousands, maybe millions, of light years ago. The observer effect must be truly cosmic in scale. He then developed the notion of the “participatory universe” – by observing the universe, we are actually creating it, not just now but in the past. In short, we are determining the initial conditions set by the big bang. Physicists aren’t discovering the laws of physics – they are creating them. As he noted: “The past history of the universe has no more validity then is assigned by the measurements we make – now!”11 And in a somewhat Star Trekky soundbite he declared: “We are participators in bringing into being not only the near and here but the far away and long ago.”12
In Wheeler’s vision, human consciousness (and that of any other sentient beings out there) is an integral part of cosmic evolution. The big bang creates the subatomic particles from which galaxies, stars and planets are built. Life forms on planets and evolves to produce intelligent, conscious beings, who through their active observation actually manifest the big bang itself, “the mechanism of genesis.”13 (Wheeler pointed out that this disposes of the multiverse: if consciousness is needed to make the universe, thenonly a universe such as ours, with its conscious living beings, can exist.)
In other words, there is a circular relationship between mind and the universe – human consciousness is in some way necessary for its completion: the universe is evolving from a starting point towards some end, and mind plays a key part in that process. As Bernard Carr commented: “Wheeler has suggested a more radical interpretation [of the anthropic principle] in which the universe does not even come into being in a well-defined way until an observer is produced who can perceive it. In this case, the veryexistence of the universe depends on life.”14
Although to the casual reader this might seem somewhat off the wall, Wheeler’s logic holds up – and, unlike the multiverse, its predictions have been tested experimentally – winning acceptance from other prominent physicists. Among them is Stephen Hawking, who writes in The Grand Design: “We create history by our observation, rather than history creating us.”15 If Wheeler is right, then we play a part in the grand design implied by the anthropic principle. And if for ‘designer’ we read ‘God’, then we are, at least in part, God, or have a share in God’s mind.
Back to the Future
Perhaps the oddest – and most satisfying – aspect of this is how Wheeler’s participatory universe dovetails with the beliefs of the ancients, as Austrian astrophysicist Erich Jantsch (1929-80) noted. Based on the mass of evidence for cosmic purpose, he developed the concept of the ‘self-organising universe’, very similar to Wheeler’s. To him, the universe, through its components – including conscious beings – determines its own evolution. He wrote, “God is not the creator, but the mind of the universe.”16 But although acknowledging that the self-organising universe was prefigured in many mystical religious systems, Jantsch singled out one in particular: “the oldest recorded world view, Hermetic philosophy.”17
Bingo! In fact we had pinpointed the very same tradition while researching our latest book, The Forbidden Universe, as the inspiration for all the great heroes of the scientific revolution: Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, William Harvey, William Gilbert, Isaac Newton – even the allegedly arch-rationalist Francis Bacon.
The Hermetic system is a metaphysical and magical philosophy and cosmology contained in a collection of texts known as the Hermetica, ascribed to a legendary Egyptian teacher, Hermes Trismegistus (‘Thrice-Great Hermes’). These writings, of which around twenty survive out of a much larger body, were set down in Egypt during the period of Greek domination, some time after the third century BCE.
They were largely lost to Europe after the crackdown on pagan scholarship when Christianity became the state religion of the Roman Empire in the fourth century CE. But they survived in the Middle East (where they actually laid the foundations of medieval Arab science), and were rediscovered by Europe in the mid-fifteenth century by an agent working for the great patron of learning, Cosimo de’ Medici – the event that actually triggered the Renaissance.
As we show in The Forbidden Universe, not only did the Hermetica go on to be the driving force behind the scientific revolution of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, but it also – somewhat spookily – outlines a cosmology that fits very neatly with Wheeler’s and Jantsch’s. (This may not be entirely coincidental, as Wheeler’s great philosophical hero was Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz [1646-1716], the extraordinary intellect and contemporary of Newton, who, like him, was steeped in the Hermetic tradition – although it was expedient to downplay his interest in matters esoteric.)
The Hermetica, too, celebrated the universe as an emanation of the mind of God, declaring: “… you must think of god in this way, as having everything – the cosmos, himself, the universe – like thoughts within himself.”18 American historian of science Ernest Lee Tuveson sums up the fundamental Hermetic principle: “the world emanates from the divine intelligence, and, as a whole in which each part is an essential component member, expresses the great Mind.”19 And modern Hermetic specialist, American philosopher Glenn Alexander Magee, writes: “Hermeticists not only hold that God requires creation, they make a specific creature, man, play a crucial role in God’s self-actualisation. Hermeticism holds that man can know God, and that man’s knowledge of God is necessary for God’s own completion.”20 Back to Wheeler’s participatory universe…
In the Hermetic cosmology, the universe is God, everything in it is an emanation of God’s mind, and human beings play a necessary part in God’s self-actualisation. In Wheeler’s, consciousness plays a fundamental role in actualising the universe.
But where did the writers of the Hermetic treatises get their ideas? Renaissance devotees of their philosophy believed it encapsulated the highest wisdom of the ancient Egyptian civilisation, that of the pyramid builders themselves. In later centuries there was a more critical view: the texts might have been written in Egypt, but owed more to Greek ideas. However, recent research shows that – while written for a Greek audience – the Hermetic books do indeed contain traditional Egyptian religious and cosmological ideas. In fact, there a compelling case that they came from the most ancient known Egyptian cult: the religion of Heliopolis, as set out in the Pyramid Texts, the oldest magical writings in the world. And as it was indeed the religion of the builders of the great pyramids of Giza, this would vindicate the beliefs of the Renaissance Hermeticists.
In their complex and highly symbolic system, the Pyramid Texts too reveal many parallels with Wheeler’s participatory universe. According to the Heliopolitan theology the cosmos is an emanation flowing out from the creator-god, Atum, expanding from a single point of origin outward to the material world. But it, too, involves a flow from ourselves back to the moment of creation. As specialist in the Heliopolitan religion, American anthropologist Karl Luckert puts it, the universe not only “exhales” from Atum but “inhales.” We might need Atum/God, but he needs us.
So perhaps instead of tying themselves in the knots of string theory and abandoning themselves to the siren seduction of the non-existent multiverse, scientists would be better advised to read the Hermetica. After all, they would only be following in the footsteps of intellectual giants. But they should be warned: there is a creative consciousness involved, as science itself shows. It is a fact: face it. But we must stress that while this ‘god’ bears no resemblance whatsoever to the petty tyrant of the Old Testament, he/she/it is not too hard to find. Simply start the quest with a mirror.

V. Susan Ferguson
The idea that we are alone in the universe is totally absurd when we consider that there are now 176 billion observable galaxies. There are trillions of stars, each of which in all probability may have at lease one inhabitable planet awaiting life forms. There is no reason to assume that the numerous extra terrestrial races have no part in the seeding and colonization of planets. Indeed the idea that earth was seeded by various off-planet beings is not in conflict with the metaphysical traditions of consciousness and enlightenment found in the Sanskrit texts. Surely it is simply logical that throughout the galaxies the more highly advanced races, either in technology or wisdom metaphysics, do seed and colonize planets that have potential for life.
Consciousness is the Key to our Liberation
All beings in this manifest universe have time as our construct, the warp and weave of time and space. We are limited by time, even though our allotted lives may vary in terms of years, eventually even the more advanced overseers who colonize the galaxies will die. The secret in the ancient Sanskrit text the Rig Veda was misunderstood, misconceived, and turned into elaborate rituals, which promised to give mortals the same numbers of years of life as their ‘gods’ — the colonizing families. The real secret, the amrita, the nectar of immortality was in consciousness, Becoming that which is never born and never dies, the eternal immutable imperishable One, the effulgence that permeates and supports All. This understanding of immortality is found in the Chandogya Upanishad, Chapter III where the true meaning of amrita, the honey nectar of immortality is revealed:
The yonder Sun [within] verily is the gods [the sense apparatus] honey. Of it, heaven is the cross beam, the middle world the honeycomb, and rays the eggs.
Of that Sun, the eastern rays are its eastern honey cells, The Rik verses are the honeybees, and the Rig Veda the flowers. The watery [apas] honey [madhu] in them is the immortal [amrita] ambrosia.
Wisdom liberates us from our perceived state of mortality. One might consider our human history of an endless mad search for immortality through science, wealth and power in the external appearances of temporal solidity time/space as mildly amusing. Everything and everyone in this world is temporal, subject to death and birth, the ocean of Samsara. Yet the secret has always been waiting within each of us, in the Heart – not the physical heart, but the metaphysical Heart.
“If a man worships another, he does not know…”
In 2013, Gerald Clark published his research in The Anunnaki of Nibiru and by chance, I recently came across the book on amazon.com. I do not know if Clark read my book. He does not cite me, nor do I care. In fact I am hoping that he came to his ideas regarding the importance of consciousness in the Anunnaki story all on his own.
While I cannot confirm Clark’s conclusions about historical details, connections to other world myths and religions, or his various personal assumptions — what did interest and impress me was his understanding regarding the suppression of the human consciousness. My research has focused on traditional ancient metaphysics and the vast implications of the loss of this Wisdom-Knowledge. Truly our enslavement, or bondage as it is commonly termed in the Sanskrit texts, is the result of our ignorance of primordial metaphysics, Wisdom-Knowledge, jñana yoga.
Those who have reached God-Consciousness, meaning their own Enlightenment, understand and experientially Know that the Oneness, simultaneously our Source and what we are, pervades and permeates All. God is everything and everyone, each of us. Therefore no one should or would bow down and worship another. This is clearly stated in the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, I.iv.10:
And to this day, [those] who…know the Self as I am Brahman [the One], become all this universe.
Even the gods [any other dimensional beings] cannot prevent his becoming this, for he has become their Self. …if a man worships another deity thinking: He is one and I am another, he does not know.
He [who does not know] is like a sacrificial animal to the gods. As many animals serve a man, so does each man serve the gods. Even if one animal is taken away, it causes anguish to the owner; how much more so when many are taken away!
Therefore it is not pleasing to the gods that men should know this [that they are the One].
Gerald Clark has understood the profound implications of consciousness in connection with our colonizers, the Anunnaki, when he says, “Recall that consciousness had the stinging side effect of empowering the enslaved [the Igigi] to rise up casting off their oppressors…” Clark elaborates on the seven chakras and suggests that the intentional suppression of human consciousness in the race created by the Anunnaki was part of the fraternal conflict between Enki and his brother Enlil. I assume that the reader has some knowledge of the Anunnaki story.
Enki was of course the master geneticist who with his half-sister Ninhursag created us. The cuneiform tablets say that Enlil found the increase of humans ‘noisy’ and sought to periodically reduce the population. Enki naturally felt more sympathetic towards us as his creations and intervened on our behalf on more than one occasion, including one of the catastrophic Great Flood events. Enlil saw no reason to activate consciousness and the chakra system in beings needed as obedient slaves.
Visions of the colonization of planet Earth
For many years I have sought to reconcile my visions of the colonization of planet Earth by the Anunnaki and my deepening understanding of the eternal metaphysical Wisdom-Knowledge in the Sanskrit texts.
In 1995 I wrote ‘Inanna Returns’ based on six months of visions that were triggered by reading Zecharia Sitchin. In 1989 I read the Sitchin books. Many of my friends were also reading Sitchin and most were complaining, struggling with the names, and Sitchin’s style of laying out endless often seemingly unrelated facts. But for me it was as if I was reading the story of my own family. I felt as if I personally knew the family of Anu – Ninhursag, Enki, Enlil, and the others. I began explaining their family relationships to my friends, who were a bit bewildered by my deep grok. I am not a scholar.
Then the visions began. As I continued to read Sitchin, I felt as if I were in Inanna’s body watching the entire colonization, hybridization, radiation wars, etc. process. The visions were quite intense, incredibly amazing, but I was completely comfortable with the experience and never felt unbalanced or frightened. However over time, I shut the visions down, which wasn’t so difficult and went on with my smaller life.
All of this resulted in my writing ‘Inanna Returns’ in 1995. I self-published, went on the lecture circuit, and when the books stopped selling eventually closed up shop. I understood that the colonizing beings were far more advanced and powerful than we humans. Therefore the best, and indeed most practical recourse for me was to seek my Enlightenment, in other words alter my own limited human consciousness. Over the years, I stopped reading the many Sitchin spin-offs as I found them too confused and confusing. Instead I chose to concentrate on metaphysics and the Sanskrit because of what Inanna had revealed to me about the Indus Valley civilization. I was especially drawn to the Mahabharata and naturally the Bhagavad Gita contained within.
In my book Inanna Returns she tells her story. Inanna was given the already existing province of the Indus Valley as a way to appease her. She wanted Egypt, but was given the Indus Valley as compensation — with the added value of getting her out of and away from Mesopotamia. Exiled to the hinterlands, Inanna devised a plan of her own, as usual, to even things up. In Chapter VIII…
‘Inanna Returns’ Chapter VIII, The Temples of Love:
Watching Ninhursag’s lonely life, coupled with my own experiences, was beginning to give me a feeling for women. As time passed on Terra, the men in my family were becoming more and more dominating. It was as if the very atmosphere of this remote planet was somehow changing us all.
In the Pleiades, women are revered as symbols of the Great Goddess and treated with respect. It is strongly forbidden by Pleiadian law to strike or rape a woman. Earth’s frontier frequencies seemed to bring about a shift in this tradition. Our men were developing a new attitude to the female half of the species. The sons of Enki, led by Marduk, created laws forbidding women certain freedoms in their territories. I was naturally angry and upset by these ridiculous laws, so in my lands, I emphasized the empowerment and enhancement of female energy, and I decided to teach the Lulus some of the Pleiadian Mysteries.
When Ninhursag and Enki created the Lulus, they left a few key components inactivated. Although the Lulus and all the humans born of them, including the present-day inhabitants of Terra, possess our genes, some of these genes don’t work because some had been purposefully unplugged. The Lulus were taught to call my family “divine,” but we were hardly that. The children of Anu are the eternal adolescents, and words like ambitious and greedy might describe us more accurately.
We had intentionally left the genetic codes of our worker race only partially functional so they would be easier to manage. I knew I could not interfere with the workings of the Lulus’ DNA, but no one could stop me from teaching them certain secrets. And since thought creates reality, I hoped a few of my priestesses or priests might fire up the “divine genes” present in all the Lulus and thus instigate their latent evolution through hormonal secretion.
In your present time, the Samkhya is all that remains of Pleiadian wisdom. Samkhya is a Sanskrit word meaning “to enumerate.” The concept of Samkhya suggests that matter is organized out of two primary components, consciousness and energy, which interact to create the universe.
It is conscious focused thought that moves the frequencies of energy to form themselves into the myriad, infinite Play of all the Worlds! Physicists in your present time are approaching this understanding, but they are missing one component, and that is Love. Not the kind of love you have experienced as humans, something limited and unpredictable, but Love as a primary force. It would never occur to a modern-day scientist to quantify a state of consciousness such as Love, but that is the secret. Love is the missing piece in all of the unified field theories.
It is the Love from Prime Creator that is the first cause of this Universe and all other dimensional realities in existence. Do not your great ones say that Love is the greatest of all qualities? Yet, it is too simple, too obvious for most.
So, I taught this Samkhya in my temples. I taught my girls and some of the men who wanted to learn how to use their beautiful minds and bodies to bring this force, the force of divine Love, onto Terra, into our cities, our fields, and our children.
It was a wonderful time for us all. Business thrived, and the women were allowed to own property and to keep their wealth separate if they so chose. Thus, no one owned them. Both sexes were sovereign unto themselves, and the men were equally happy. There was a flowering of civilization and the arts. Our fields were abundant, trade with Sumer and Egypt was booming, and the arts of dance, song, painting, and sculpting soared to new heights. Reports of Maya’s architectural achievements spread around the world.
The intentional suppression of human consciousness…
The knowledge that the war between those who took part in seeding and colonizing this planet, Enki and Enlil, has been about the activation of human consciousness reveals to us the way to freedom. The mystery of thousands of years of suppression from tyrannical religions demanding that we humans bow down and worship gods, or even one who is vengeful blood-thirsty war-loving, is solved. Religious wars that have repeatedly destroyed great civilizations, and the freedom of enquiry that often got close to Truth, must come to an end.
We free our consciousness from bondage and delusion, when we seek the ubiquitous One that pervades All and dwells within the Heart of every man, woman, and child. The eternal One waits patiently for each of us to again turn inside and recover our own divinity and Source. Who then can force us to worship any thing outside of us? The One permeates and pervades All. It manifests this woven universe with Love, created by the effulgence of It’s own Delight! We are That. TAT TVAM ASI. Perhaps that time has come, time to return Home — but the outcome remains in our hands, or should I say in our Hearts.
Thus we may begin to understand that all this Anunnaki business, the truth of our ancient origins, the prophets and profits of doom, the threat matrix of Fear Incorporated, all melt down to consciousness, our human consciousness.
“Consciousness shines in various external and internal forms.
There is no existence of objects apart from consciousness.
Therefore the world is simply a form of consciousness.”
- Kalikakrama, as quoted in the Shiva Sutras translated by Jaideva Singh
The future remains up to us, each individual to choose Liberation or bow-down & worship tyranny. No one can do this for you. I’m not saying Truth is easy, although for some it may be. We do walk the proverbial Razor’s Edge, the abyss on every side. But Home is the Oneness we all emerge from, the eternal, unmanifest immutable imperishable — and inevitably all of us will return to and dissolve back into That. There is only one Soul forever dancing in crazy Love, Its mad blissful Joy across thousands of universes.

‘The waking up process is a very personal experience. Once we become aware of the existence of a fabricated world we thought to be real and that our true nature is anything but what we’ve been told, there’s no turning back.
It may appear to be a lonely path, but we are by no means alone in this awakening. It is happening in all walks of life. Whether a banker or corporate employee wakes up to the scam being perpetrated on humanity and pulls out of the matrix, or a normal taxpaying worker realizes they’re contributing to a military industrial machine hell bent on control and world domination, we’re all the same.
And those are just surface issues compared to the deliberate suppression of man’s innate spiritual nature, whether we call it social liberty or the freedom to create and manifest as we truly are.’
Life is a struggle. How much more then is the spiritual life, the fight to remain conscious in an illusory world where deviant forces vie for control more than caring, battering your very body and soul day in and day out on top of your struggle to survive.
Oh, we’re going peacefully downstream in the conscious dimensions. There we learn to let go and follow the flow of the Universe and synchronicity.
But in this physical, lower density world, we’re fighting directly upstream. In addition, we’re living in a time of increasingly turbulent waters. Our kayaks hit all kinds of eddies and crosscurrents, never mind the rocks and rapids we have to navigate–all while idiots, enemies and doubters, prodded on by the propaganda whores, are screaming obscenities from the shore and trying to hit us with anything they can get their hands on!
But alas, grasshoppers—we have powers they know not of!
The Call to Battle
We’re in a warfare, any way you look at it. Only it’s not a warfare of hate, but of love. It’s not a warfare of physical violence, but a spiritual one of intention and a Truth directed life. The inherent cause of Universal consciousness is the dissolution of the ways born of ignorance and darkness by means of the all powerful exposing and enlightening weapons of Light, Love and Truth.
The medieval matrix, no matter how fancy and hi-tech it has become, is dissolving and losing its grip. And we need to actively help it on its way to oblivion.
Don’t forget, non-compliance is a decisive action, not inaction. Inaction is going with the current of the matrix.
There is no sitting still. We’re all doing one or the other.
That’s the choice. That’s the battle.
Awakening of a New Consciousness
In A Time of Imbalance the Call to Rise is Natural
Similar to the poetic beauty of martial arts, the Truth warrior uses his weapons skillfully and with great discretion. While many argue we need evil for good to exist and all that esoterica, we happen to be living in a time of great imbalance.
Do you enjoy having lords of darkness rule over you and yours, exercising more death dealing, spirit quelling control over humanity by the day?
Didn’t think so. Will it collapse under its own weight? In many ways it has to. Will it do it all by itself?
Then why are we here? As long as we’re here we’re part of the Great Design and need to do our part.
All I know is that what I am finding out and tuning into calls me to participate. It’s as real as the sun and water hitting a seedling and the organism responding. If it’s not evident to you that our planet and civilization are under attack I do wonder how you got to this article. It couldn’t be any clearer. That’s why they direct the angst people are feeling, the knowing that something is wrong, towards fabricated “outside” enemies to divert attention from the real perpetrators.
Similar to how religion co-opts, steers and contains the human soul’s hunger for the spiritual, the Controllers arouse, channel and misdirect humanity’s sense that it is being attacked and they literally harness what they themselves have aroused, using it for their own parasitic, vampirist purposes.
Cattle prods and sheep dogs driving humanity into the slaughterhouse.
There is No “They”…They Said.
The old “tell a big enough lie” ploy. Their biggest tool is to say there is no “they”. There are no dark forces. In fact, we’re told the “they” are the good guys looking out for us. Reminds me of the adage that the biggest lie Satan ever told is that he doesn’t exist. Pretty clever these demons, eh? Ha! Laugh at them!
Yet their all usurping lie remains:
There is no negative, destructive, usurping parasitic force in the Universe. Humanity just has other similar humans to worry about. The PTBs are here to save us from each other.
After all, that’s the mantra of the anti-conspiracy camp. ” THEY? Are you crazy? You really think there’s some ‘secret cabal’ running things from behind the scenes? How insane are you? If that were the case we’d be hearing all about it in the mainstream media! No way they could hide something that big!”
Same old, same old.
A very dark time right now indeed. Choose ye this day.
If you feel the call to participate more it’s consciousness calling, any way you slice it. Take your place on the great mandala and all that, but there’s a bulldozer headed for your house. Are you just gonna sit there?
It’s that urgent.
No doubt you’ve given all of this serious thought. And I know many of you have activated and it’s absolutely beautiful. I’m proud to be associated with so many amazing, loving committed people. I think we just need to be adaptive and prepared for more. The winds are picking up and the battlefield is becoming more fluid, more challenging and more demanding.
And for those on the sidelines:
It’s time to choose your weapon – or let it choose you.
I’m not gonna tell anyone what to do. If people don’t learn to choose for themselves, consciousness is not at work and back to the old paradigms we go.
But do something. Get the boat in motion or the rudder can’t take effect. Find and take your calling seriously and step it up. We all have to.
Meditate, intend, pray, affirm. But act! Change your life, change the etheric around you by your loving actions and intentions. Try new consciousness technologies. Write, talk, show up, contribute, speak to groups, attend gatherings of active and motivated individuals. Find the opening and jump in. The rest will follow.
Contribute we must. Hopefully with our whole lives. It’s all we have for all we’re worth.
It’s not a time to get frantic by any means, but perhaps take this as an alert, something I know many of you are also feeling. Our old views of just weeks and months ago are shifting and will continue to do so. It’s subtle, but it’s profoundly real. We have to step it up and yield to what consciousness is calling each of us to do.
A purely inspired and motivated heart will always find the way.

Thank you for re-posting it and help to spread its message around!
The war on consciousness and the agenda against esoteric knowledge is not a side issue. Ultimately we are all consciousness, and so whilst a myriad of issues play back and forth in the world, what affects our ability to recognize who we are and awaken the potential of our consciousness is THE issue that lies at the very core of life. Spiritual knowledge is therefore right up there on the hit list of the dark and hidden powers that be.
The most recent evidence of this: the UK government has proposed a billmake internet service providers automatically block websites dubbed “esoteric material”. That means people in the UK could be shut off from websites the UK government deems “esoteric” unless they go in and manually un-tick their network filters (you can find directions on how to do this here).
It has been labelled “pornwall” by some because the bill will block pornographic websites in the name of internet safety for children (great), but this “hot topic” has overshadowed media debate, likely very deliberately. A BBC article debated pornography only, despite there being 9 other categories of blocked material discovered by the Open Rights Group, which includes the aforementioned “esoteric material”. A moral issue has clearly become the Trojan horse to unleash a new stage in the game plan long in the making against spiritual knowledge.
Esoteric Practices and the Websites of “Sects” Already Blocked on Some Phones
So exactly what is esoteric? There are different definitions, but the word is mainly associated with knowledge of a spiritual kind, leaving an open door for people to abuse and target all manner of spirituality. But in case there was any confusion as to exactly what “esoteric material” they might be getting at, the Open Rights Group has already reported that websites of organizations that promote “esoteric practices” whether directly or indirectly have already been blocked in the UK on pay-as-you-go Orange phones. I wonder if “esoteric practices” include types of meditation, practices of astral projection, or making contact with celestial beings etc. – but in the end, what you or I think doesn’t matter as the UK government has decided that it will be the judge of what spiritual knowledge humanity has access to.
The wording also states that the websites of “universally acknowledged sects” (small religious groups) are also blocked. Universally acknowledged by who exactly? Apparently there is already global cooperation to “universally” define what spiritual groups and beliefs will be labelled with the derogatory term “sect” and who they will be shutting the people of the UK off from (soon to be coming to a country near you), whilst they set up their own “universal” pop culture of demonic rituals and icons – just do an internet search for “illuminati music industry” (note: if you have an Orange phone in the UK you’re also blocked from sites that will anonymize your searching). Are we finally witnessing the beginnings of a dark New World Religion?
What is Esoteric Anyway?
Esoteric is defined as:
Confined to and understandable by only an enlightened inner circle.
Designed for or understood by the specially initiated alone.
Requiring or exhibiting knowledge that is restricted to a small group; difficult to understand; limited to a small circle.
Sound like the incredible spiritual knowledge encoded into the sacred texts and sites of the ancient Egyptians, Mayans, and Hindus, or those found in the ancient mystery schools of the Essenes, the Eleusinians, Pythagoreans, or Druids? Or what about the knowledge Jesus passed in secret to his disciples? The definition is so broad it could contain all the wisdom traditions of thousands of years of human history that reveal the power of conscious awakening we each have within, for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
This is what they want to keep out of the minds of children, whilst Hollywood and the music industry increasingly target them with unimaginably dark, demonic and disturbing images and vibrations? Could the agenda be to create entirely new generations fed solely on the demonic filth being poured out of the music/media industry with zero real alternative?
Esoteric Knowledge is Powerful – That’s Why They Don’t Want Us to Have It
Why would they bother to target “esoteric material”? Perhaps that will now give you some indicator as to HOW POWERFUL ESOTERIC KNOWLEDGE REALLY IS. They know it, and that’s why they don’t want you to have it. Whilst it is marginalized and condemned in society, there are very powerful secret societies running much of the show that use it specifically for dark and demonic purposes where it is inverted to invoke evil powers and why you see them using inverted esoteric symbols (such as the inverted crucifix and pentagram so “in vogue” in Hollywood right now). So not only could censoring “esoteric material” block genuinely spiritual information, but even people exposing the use of dark esoteric knowledge for sinister purposes in an extraordinary double take.
We can oppose dark forces with those of light; we can defeat the power born from the knowledge of evil with that which is born from truth and the knowledge of the light. As long as esoteric knowledge continues to be suppressed, those who use it for evil can continue unaffected behind the scenes and that is exactly what they want. For example, someone can use out-of-body experiences to actually see where the dark things in the world are emanating from rather than just their manifestations.
By working with consciousness, truth, light, and celestial forces we can penetrate and expose the dark heart of evil in the world, not doing this is to merely cut the tentacles of an octopus strangling humanity – one whose tentacles continuously regrow. Each tentacle gets its power from the connection feeding the octopus, which goes right down into the source of evil. This connection is the source of their knowledge and power; whilst consciousness and the spiritual is the source of ours.
The War on Consciousness
The opposition to dark forces has been part of the work of many esoteric schools of light (many of whom had to operate in secret for their own protection), which have been established throughout the world and human history, and why they have been targeted by infiltration, smears, and persecution so exhaustively. There is a war going on that most people are completely unaware of; it is A WAR ON CONSCIOUSNESS.
What they really don’t want us to know is the power and potential of consciousness that we each contain, the inner light that has the power to break every psychological chain that binds us, to act with an intelligence informed by truth and higher sources such as intuition, out-of-body experiences, dreams, love, peace and wisdom.
The Cannabis plant contains over 60 cannabinoids, which are carbon-containing terpenophenolic compounds concentrated in the viscous resin of the glandular trichomes on the cannabis plant bud. There are psychoactive cannabinoids, such as Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), while others, such as cannabidiol (CBD), have no psychoactive effects while offering profound healing properties.
The human body responds to the cannabis plant because its also has its own natural cannabinoids – called endocannabinoids – which help establish and maintain human health.
The endogenous cannabinoid system, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.
Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids are also found at the intersection of the body’s various systems, allowing communication and coordination between different cell types. At the site of an injury, for example, cannabinoids can be found decreasing the release of activators and sensitizers from the injured tissue, stabilizing the nerve cell to prevent excessive firing, and calming nearby immune cells to prevent release of pro-inflammatory substances. Three different mechanisms of action on three different cell types for a single purpose: minimize the pain and damage caused by the injury. (source)
After the discovery of the body’s natural cannabinoids, researchers and scientists have started putting more time into exploring the affect that cannabinoids from the cannabis plant have on the treatment of human ailments. The following are 6 best-known cannabinoids and how they are believed to affect the human body:
Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol – THC
THC is the most well-known cannabinoid and the main psychoactive constituent of cannabis. THC has been used in the treatment of chemotherapy-associated nausea and vomiting. It is also used to stimulate the appetite and increase food intake in AIDS and cancer patients. THC has also been tested on brain cancer cells and has been found to inhibit the growth of brain tumors. Furthermore, THC has shown pain-reducing, anti-tremor and anti-inflammatory properties.
Cannabidiol – CBD
CBDs hold the most promise for the use of cannabis in the treatment of serious medical conditions. CBDs have been tested in the treatment of cancer cells and are found to significantly inhibit cancer cell growth. They also assist in the uptake of other cancer drugs, increasing their effectiveness. Other research has also identified CBD to have anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties, and others believe CBD has anti-convulsant, anti-psychotic and neuro-protective properties. CBDs are also known to alleviate some of the psychoactive effects of THC.
Cannabinol – CBN
CBN is a mildy-psychoactive cannabinoid known as the sleep-inducing part of the cannabis plant. It increases the drowsy and dizzy effects of THC. High-CBN strains are being used as sedatives and sleep-aids for those suffering from insomnia. Some studies have been exploring the potential use of CBNs in the treatment of osteoporosis.
Cannabichromene – CBC
CBG has been somewhat understudied but research has shown that CBGs have a profound effect on the body’s cannabinoid receptors. Thus they work with other cannabinoids to provide overall synergy and balance. CBGs have been found to have an anti-nausea and anti-vomiting effect, as well as reduce pain and ease inflammation. CGBs are also known to increase the fluid drainage from the eye and reduce the amount of pressure when treating glaucoma. Industrial hemp strains have been found to have the highest levels of CBG when compared to other cannabis sativa strains.
Tetrahydrocannabivarin – THCV
THCV can be most commonly found in the cannabis varieties indigenous to central Africa. THCV is being researched as a treatment for metabolic disorders such as diabetes and obesity. Research has shown that THCV helps produce fat loss and results in an increased sensitivity response to insulin.
Mounting research continues to establish a strong case for the miraculous healing capabilities of cannabinoids. Our support of cannabis plant cultivation and continued scientific research will lead to more availability of various cannabis strains specifically designed to have high doses of certain cannabinoids and thus serve as safe medication for horrific ailments.
The use of medical marijuana and cannabis-derived medicines in the treatment of diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, chronic pain, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, insomnia, depression, etc., will continue to grow. Cannabis may yet become one of the most useful natural remedies to some of the most crippling diseases of mankind.
No one in the world can fathom what quantum mechanics is, this is perhaps the most important thing you need to know about it. Granted, many physicists have learned to use its laws and even predict phenomena based on quantum calculations. But it is still unclear why the observer of an experiment determines behavior of the system and causes it to favor one state over another. “Theories and Applications” picked examples of experiments with outcomes which will inevitably be influenced by the observer, and tried to figure out how quantum mechanics is going to deal with the intervention of conscious thought in material reality.
1. Schrödinger’s cat
Today there are many interpretations of quantum mechanics with the Copenhagen interpretation being perhaps the most famous to-date. In the 1920s, its general postulates were formulated by Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg. The wave function has become the core term of the Copenhagen interpretation, it is a mathematical function containing information about all possible states of a quantum system in which it exists simultaneously.
As stated by the Copenhagen interpretation, the state of the system and its position relative to other states can only be determined by an observation (the wave function is used only to help mathematically calculate the probability of the system being in one state or another). We can say that after observation, the quantum system becomes classical and immediately cease to exist in other states, except for the state it has been observed.
This approach has always had its opponents (remember for example Albert Einstein’s “God does not play dice“), but the accuracy of the calculations and predictions prevailed. However, the number of supporters of the Copenhagen interpretation is decreasing and the major reason for that is the mysterious instant collapse of the wave function during the experiments. The famous mental experiment by Erwin Schrödinger with the poor cat was meant to demonstrate the absurdity of this phenomenon.
Let us recap the nature of this experiment. A live cat is placed inside a black box, together with a vial containing poison and a mechanism that can release this poison at random. For instance, a radioactive atom during its decay can break the vial. The precise time of atom’s decay is unknown. Only half-life, or the time during which the decay occurs with a probability of 50%, is known.
Obviously, for the external observer, the cat inside the box exists in two states: it is either alive, if all goes well, or dead, if the decay occurred and the vial was broken. Both of these states are described by the cat’s wave function, which changes over time. The more time has passed, the more likely that radioactive decay has already happened. But as soon as we open the box, the wave function collapses, and we immediately see the outcomes of this inhumane experiment.
In fact, until the observer opens the box, the cat will be subjected to the endless balance on the brink of being between life and death, and its fate can only be determined by the action of the observer. That is the absurdity pointed out by Schrödinger .
2. Diffraction of electrons
According to the poll of the greatest physicists conducted by The New York Times, the experiment with electron diffraction is one of the most astonishing studies in the history of science. What was its nature?
There is a source that emits a stream of electrons onto photosensitive screen. And there is obstruction in the way of these electrons, a copper plate with two slits. What kind of picture can be expected on the screen if the electrons are imagined as small charged balls? Two strips illuminated opposite to the slits.
In fact, the screen displays a much more complex pattern of alternating black and white stripes. This is due to the fact that, when passing through the slit, electrons begin to behave not as particles, but as waves (just like the photons, or light particles, which can be waves at the same time). These waves interact in space, either quenching or amplifying each other, and as a result, a complex pattern of alternating light and dark stripes appears on the screen.
At the same time, the result of this experiment does not change, and if electrons pass through the slit not as one single stream, but one by one, even one particle can be a wave. Even a single electron can pass simultaneously through both slits (and this is also one of the main postulates of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, when particles can simultaneously display both their “usual” physical properties and exotic properties as a wave).
But what about the observer? The observer makes this complicated story even more confusing. When physicists, during similar experiments, tried to determine with the help of instruments which slit the electron actually passes through, the image on the screen had changed dramatically and become a “classic” pattern with two illuminated sections opposite to the slits and no alternating bands displayed.
Electrons seemed not wanting to show their wave nature under the watchful eye of observers. Did they manage to follow their instinctive desire to see a clear and simple picture. Is this some kind of a mystery? There is a more simple explanation: no observation of a system can be carried out without physically impacting it. But we will discuss this a bit later.
3. Heated fullerene
Experiments on the diffraction of particles have been conducted not only for electrons, but for much larger objects. For example, using fullerenes, large and closed molecules consisting of dozens of carbon atoms (for example, fullerene of sixty carbon atoms is very similar in shape to a football, a hollow sphere comprised of pentagons and hexagons).
Recently, a group of scientists from the University of Vienna supervised by Professor Zeilinger tried to introduce an element of observation in these experiments. To do this, they irradiated moving fullerene molecules with a laser beam. Then, warmed by an external source, the molecules began to glow and inevitably displayed their presence in space to the observer.
Together with this innovation, the behavior of molecules has also changed. Prior to the beginning of such comprehensive surveillance, fullerenes quite successfully avoided obstacles (exhibited wave-like properties) similar to the previous example with electrons passing through an opaque screen. But later, with the presence of an observer, fullerenes began to behave as completely law-abiding physical particles.
4. Cooling measurement
One of the famous laws in the world of quantum physics is the Heisenberg uncertainty principle which claims that it is impossible to determine the speed and the position of a quantum object at the same time. The more accurate we are at measuring the momentum of a particle, the less precise we are at measuring its position. But the validity of quantum laws operating on tiny particles usually remains unnoticed in our world of large macroscopic objects.
Recent experiments by Professor Schwab in the U.S. are even more valuable in this respect, where quantum effects have been demonstrated not at the level of electrons or fullerene molecules (their characteristic diameter is about 1 nm), but on a little more tangible object, a tiny aluminum strip.
This strip was fixed on both sides so that its middle was in a suspended state and it could vibrate under external influence. In addition, a device capable of accurately recording strip’s position was placed near it.
As a result, the experimenters came up with two interesting findings. First, any measurement related to the position of the object and observations of the strip did affect it, after each measurement the position of the strip changed. Generally speaking , the experimenters determined the coordinates of the strip with high precision and thus , according to the Heisenberg’s principle, changed its velocity, and hence the subsequent position.
Secondly, which was quite unexpected, some measurements also led to cooling of the strip. So, the observer can change physical characteristics of objects just by being present there.
5. Freezing particles
As it is well known, unstable radioactive particles decay not only for experiments with cats, but also on their own. Each particle has an average lifetime which, as it turns out, can increase under the watchful eye of the observer.
This quantum effect was first predicted back in the 1960s, and its brilliant experimental proof appeared in the article published in 2006 by the group led by Nobel laureate in Physics Wolfgang Ketterle of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
In this paper, the decay of unstable excited rubidium atoms was studied (photons can decay to rubidium atoms in their basic state). Immediately after preparation of the system, excitation of atoms was observed by exposing it to a laser beam. The observation was conducted in two modes: continuous (the system was constantly exposed to small light pulses) and pulse-like (the system was irradiated from time to time with more powerful pulses).
The obtained results are perfectly in line with theoretical predictions. External light effects slow down the decay of particles, returning them to their original state, which is far from the state of decay. The magnitude of this effect for the two studied modes also coincides with the predictions. The maximum life of unstable excited rubidium atoms was extended up to 30-fold.
Quantum mechanics and consciousness
Electrons and fullerenes cease to show their wave properties, aluminum plates cool down and unstable particles freeze while going through their decay, under the watchful eye of the observer the world changes. Why cannot this be the evidence of involvement of our minds in the workings of the world? So maybe Carl Jung and Wolfgang Pauli (Austrian physicist and Nobel laureate, the pioneer of quantum mechanics) were correct after all when they said that the laws of physics and consciousness should be seen as complementary?
We are only one step away from admitting that the world around us is just an illusory product of our mind. Scary, isn’t it? Let us then again try to appeal to physicists. Especially when in recent years, they favor less the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, with its mysterious collapse of the wave function, giving place to another quite down to earth and reliable term decoherence.
Here’s the thing, in all these experiments with the observations, the experimenters inevitably impacted the system. They lit it with a laser and installed measuring devices. But this is a common and very important principle:you cannot observe the system or measure its properties without interacting with it. And where there is interaction, there will be modification of properties. Especially when a tiny quantum system is impacted by colossal quantum objects. So the eternal Buddhist observer neutrality is impossible.
This is explained by the term “decoherence”, which is an irreversible, from the point of view of thermodynamics, process of altering the quantum properties of the system when it interacts with another larger system. During this interaction the quantum system loses its original properties and becomes a classic one while “obeying ” the large system. This explains the paradox of Schrödinger’s cat: the cat is such a large system that it simply cannot be isolated from the rest of the world. The mere design of this mental experiment is not quite correct.
In any event, compared to the reality of consciousness as an act of creation, decoherence represents a much more convenient approach. Perhaps even too convenient. Indeed, with this approach, the entire classical world becomes one big consequence of decoherence. And as the authors of one of the most prominent books in this field stated, such an approach would also logically lead to statements like “there are no particles in the world” or ” there is no time on a fundamental level”.
Is it the creator-observer or powerful decoherence? We have to choose between the two evils. But remember, now scientists are increasingly convinced that the basis of our mental processes is created by these notorious quantum effects. So, where the observation ends and reality begins, is up to each of us.
In this article we will explore how your body is a holographic projection of your consciousness, and how you directly influence that hologram and thus have complete control over the physical health of your body. We will also specifically explore the exact mechanism behind this principle, and don’t worry, I will provide scientific evidence so let your rational mind be at ease. But first … how is this even possible?
Human Thought Determines Reality
One of the key principles of quantum physics is that our thoughts determine reality. Early in the 1900′s they proved this beyond a shadow of a doubt with an experiment called the double slit experiment. They found that the determining factor of the behavior of energy (‘particles’) at the quantum level is the awareness of the observer.
For example: electrons under the same conditions would sometimes act like particles, and then at other times they would switch to acting like waves (formless energy), because it was completely dependent on what the observer expected was going to happen. Whatever the observed believed would occur is what the quantum field did.
The quantum world is waiting for us to make a decision so that it knows how to behave. That is why quantum physicists have such difficulties in dealing with, explaining, and defining the quantum world. We are truly, in every sense of the word, masters of creation because we decide what manifests out of the field of all-possibility and into form.
Video: We Think We Are Humans...We are Consciousness
The thing is, the quantum level of reality isn’t a local and insignificant aspect of creation. It is all around us, and it is the most fundamental level of creation aside from the unified field itself. The human energy field is interacting and influencing the quantum field all around us at all times and the energy of our beliefs and intentions are infused into our energy field because they are defined by the energy of our thoughts and emotions.
Thus the fusion of our thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and intentions, which I will call the human energy field for simplicity’s sake, is perpetually informing the quantum reality within us and around us at each moment of our existence.
And because reality is flashing in and out of existence (hypothetically at Planck time – 1044 times per second – as explained by The Resonance Project biophysicist William Brown), every time our reality oscillates between form, and the pure energy state of the field, our awareness which is constant and doesn’t flash in and out of existence informs the field what to reappear as when it makes its transition back to form at the quantum level.
Therefore each time we oscillate into formlessness, we have complete and total control and responsibility over what we choose with our attention to manifest out of the field in the next moment, and our power and ability to do so relies entirely what we believe, and on how we are feeling.
A dramatic example of this is the case of Vittorio Michelli. In 1962 he was admitted to the Military Hospital of Verona, Italy with a large tumor on his left hip. The doctors knew that they could not help him, so his case was deemed hopeless and he was sent home without treatment, and after about 10 months his left hip bone had completely disintegrated. As a last resort, he traveled to Lourdes, France and bathed himself in the spring there (which is a Christian holy site famous for producing miracles).
Immediately he started feeling better, he regained his appetite, and bathed himself in the spring a few more times before he left. After a few months of being home he felt such a powerful sense of well-being that he urged the doctors to x-ray him again, and they were astonished to find that his tumor had shrunk. Over the next several months they kept a close watch on him, and his X-rays showed that his tumor kept on shrinking, until it was gone. And once his tumor disappeared, his hipbone started regenerating.
After two months he was walking again, and several years later his hip bone had completely regenerated. The Vatican’s Medical Commission, in their official report said:
“A remarkable reconstruction of the iliac bone and cavity has taken place. The X-rays made in 1964, 1965, 1968, and 1969 confirm categorically and without doubt that an unforeseen and even overwhelming bone reconstruction has taken place of a type unknown in the annals of world medicine.” (The Holographic Universe, p.107)
Ordinarily this would be deemed miraculous, and indeed it truly is. But I find this miraculous in the sense of the true power of human intention and belief that it displays. Moreover, this is powerful evidence that suggests that there is an energetic structure which our ‘material bodies’ align with, because that is one of the only logical explanations for how Vittorio Michelli’s hip bone knew exactly which shape to grow back into unless there was some sort of energetic blueprint which was instructing its growth, which as the Vatican’s Medical Commission clearly stated, was “unknown in the annals of world medicine.”
In medicine, maybe this was unknown, but the same cannot be said for physics. At the atomic level atoms bond with one another to form molecules which have specific geometric structures as if there is an energetic blueprint which they are adhering to which dictates the shapes they maintain together.
If our bodies are a projection of consciousness, then our consciousness would create an energetic blueprint which our atoms and molecules align with to create our bodies. There is highly suggestive evidence of the existence of this energetic blueprint (or human energy field) in the new research on DNA which proves that it transmits, receives, and thus reads energy directly from the field.
Michelli’s case is a perfect example of our human ability to re-organize that vacuum structure with our energy and intentions, and thus manifest what we desire directly out of the field for truly miraculous results. The fact that he started to feel better and started to believe that he was healed is, I suggest, the key to his healing.
Some may want to stick with the belief that God healed this man, and I would agree to you. But you and I would probably disagree on the nature of this God. For I contend that you are god, as are we all, because the force we call God is the energy and infinite consciousness behind creation, and thus when we tap into ourselves as pure consciousness, i.e. without thought through meditation, then we open ourselves to the infinitude of our own awareness because we inseparably are that infinite creative consciousness. We are it and it is us.
And when we open up to that energy, we allow ourselves to be flooded with a “powerful sense of well-being” and knowing which has astounding power to create reality, and directly affects our biology.

The Body as a Projection of Consciousness
I want you to really internalize the understanding that reality is flashing in and out of form. This is absolutely crucial in understanding our ability to heal, because if half of the time we are formless, then (1) Who are we really, because obviously our bodies and the material world is illusory to a degree; and (2) What is the blueprint which is guiding the rearrangement of our bodies each time we quite literally re-materialize?
The answer to both questions would be consciousness. Our bodies are a holographic projection of our consciousness, and they are the sum total of our beliefs about ourselves. If we can change our beliefs about ourselves, and thus if we can change the energy that defines our human energy field, then we can change the energetic blueprint which our body aligns with as it re-materializes back into form 1044 times per second.
(The exact structure and dynamics of our consciousness which make us both a fractal and holographic expression of this infinite God-consciousness can be found in Nassim Haramein’s Holofractographic Universe theory, and in his work Crossing the Event Horizon.)
Deepak Chopra told a story that illustrates this perfectly in his book, How to Know God. A friend of his injured his foot while working out in a gym because he was unaccustomed to using one of the machines and strained it. The pain in his foot increased over the next few days, and he found it increasingly difficult to walk, so upon “medical examination it was found that he had a common ailment known as planar fasciitis, in which the connecting tissue between the heel and the front of the foot had been stretched or torn.” (How to Know God, p.221)
His friend decided not to have surgery and instead to tough it out, but in time he found it so painful and difficult to walk that he sought out a Chinese Healer in desperation. This Chinese man was ordinary by appearance, and gave “no evidence of being mystical or spiritual, or in any way gifted in healing.” The injured friend of Deepak Chopra continues:
“After gently feeling my foot, he stood up and made a few signs in the air behind my spine. He never actually touched me, and when I asked what he was doing, he simply said he was turning some switches in my energy field. He did this for a minute or so and then asked me to stand up. I did, and there was no sensation of pain, not the slightest. You have to remember that I had limped in, barely able to walk.”
“In complete amazement I asked him what he had done. He told me that the body was an image projected by the mind, and in a state of health the mind keeps this image intact and balanced. However, injury and pain can cause us to withdraw our attention from the affected spot. In that case, the body image starts to deteriorate; its energy patterns become impaired, unhealthy. So the healer restores the correct pattern – this is done instantly, on the spot – after which the patient’s own mind takes responsibility for maintaining it that way.” (How to Know God, p.222)
This story has fascinated and inspired me ever since I heard it. As we have seen, reality is flashing in and out of existence innumerable times every second, oscillating between form and formlessness, and quantum physics knows that our thoughts and beliefs influence the quantum reality which is the source of the material world. Therefore it is only natural to assume an energetic and formless source for all of creation, including our physicality.
I think it is absolutely clear that we must start to consider ourselves as more than a physical body. In truth it is much more coherent to think of ourselves as a luminous energy field organizing ourselves in a body, or as pure consciousness manifesting and temporarily experiencing this level of reality through our bodies. New evidence is clearly illustrating that our mind is non-local and is independent of the brain, which means it doesn’t need the brain, or the body for that matter, to exist.
We are so much more than we think we are, and infinitely more than we have been lead to believe. The next step that we have to take, moreover, the next step in our human evolution now involves us learning how to use and hone this power we have to influence reality and literally manifest anything we want directly out of the field, from a new hip, to perhaps better eyesight, or a fit and healthy body, all the way to a new life.
But how is this done?
Healing Your Field, Healing Your Body
To heal, all that we need to do is purify our energy so that the energetic projection of our body is unobstructed. Then our atoms and molecules can align perfectly to this structure because there is no energetic interference to disrupt the image of our body as projected by our consciousness.
We do this by getting in the gap between our thoughts, where our beliefs no longer affect our reality, for, when we are not thinking, we are also free of beliefs and expectations. And by doing this we are aligning ourselves with universal principles, and matching our energy with the energies coming directly from the field of all-possibility – those high frequency energies of love, kindness, inspiration, passion, joy, and so on.
The first step is to consider the possibility that we are not only energy, but that there is infinite energy all around us which we can consciously tap into to promote healing in our body and mind, to become a more happy, healthy, vibrant and creative being. As soon as you start to connect to the infinite energy of creation and your own true nature as formless energy, then you start to become aware of these energies in your body which returns the projection of your body to its natural state.
The projection of your body can only be disrupted by a disturbance in your energy field – your consciousness- caused by unbalanced thoughts and emotions, and limiting beliefs. Our luminous energy field is naturally vibrant, and our energy naturally flows unhindered as a powerful stream of consciousness, but the lower levels of consciousness, which we have been conditioned to live in as part of our social indoctrination, disrupt this flow which if left unhindered would express its perfection everywhere.
Another key concept to understand is that your body is always regenerating. In a talk of Deepak Chopra’s that I listened to, he pointed out that atoms do not age. They do not die, and the same atoms that existed at the big bang around 14 billion years ago exist to this day, some of which are even within you.
Every year 98% of the atoms in your body are exchanged for ‘new’ atoms. You are constantly dying, and being reborn, and literally transforming at the atomic and molecular levels. Every three days you have a new stomach lining, every month you have new skin, every three months you have a new skeleton. And every year you have almost an entirely new body (Deepak Chopra from Living Beyond Miracles with Wayne Dyer).
Deepak Chopra described it beautifully by saying that our atoms “are like migrating birds”. They are not permanent, they are completely independent, and are drifting through space and time and merely being organized into structures such as our bodies by none other than our energy field which organizes them as a magnetic field organizes metal filings, only slightly more complex.
What more proof do we need in order to start looking at our bodies differently, and in general looking at the mechanism of health itself in a new light?
None of the raw materials that form your physical body age, moreover, they are constantly changing. Therefore I ask this of you. Is it really you that is changing? And what is the force that organizes these atoms and molecules back where they are supposed to be, and makes sure that they perfectly and harmoniously continue to do their jobs even while your cells and atoms are migrating by the billions?
Your body is not the real you. Your body is merely a projection of what you believe yourself to be. If you could discover that you are pure consciousness, and that who you really are is an infinite creative awareness that is manifesting reality and co-creating reality with other aspects of yourself (because every being is an expression of the infinite universal consciousness we have labelled as God), then you can start to take complete control over your body, your health, and your life.
Chronic pain, disease, illness, or the old injuries that you have in your body are not actually in your body, they are in your mind. More specifically, they are a function of your perception. Your atoms are always changing, and your molecules are too, but as new atoms come and as new molecules are formed, and as you flash in and out of existence, your energetic field is telling them where to go, what to do, and how to align with one another.
Therefore, you are holding disease, illness, pain, and injuries within your consciousness, and thus, they are imprinted in your energetic field, and only then do they proceed to manifest in your physiology.
If this is the case, then not only is our health completely under our willful control, but the rate at which we age may even be under our control as well. Now I am not suggesting that we can be immortal, because we already are as infinite beings of consciousness. What I am suggesting is that in a time long forgotten, and in the near future, human beings have had and will realize again the ability to live from this field, and live consciously from their nature as luminous beings of pure energy.
At that time human beings will realize that the body is a manifestation of our highest self, and we can not only consciously manifest anything in life, but anything in our bodies as well. And one day we will reach a point where we can continually regenerate our bodies at will because we live from the field of infinite energy, and thus our bodies simply operate at a higher frequency so that we can live in them until our work is completed and we choose to move on.
Fantastic? Yes. But these changes are noticeable within the human body and mind even after a little bit of practice and training, so decide to feel and experience it for yourself, and learn how to meditate. This is what evidence is clearly suggesting and my own experience also indicates to be true. The only hindrance to tapping into this nature of the universe is your own conscious awareness, your level of attention, and your beliefs.
Our ability to heal is directly related to our level of attention and our level of belief. For example we can heal ourselves of any affliction, illness, disease, or injury that is possible so long as we have absolute certainty, a knowing, that we will be healed. This is directly achieved by accessing the most fundamental level of reality through deep meditation.
This is because at the fundamental level of reality, anything is possible, and the restructuring of reality is dictated entirely by our beliefs and expectations. We are pure energy, and there is infinite potential in that energy. It is entirely up to us what we choose to manifest out of the field in our lives and in our bodies.
You have no limitations, and nothing is impossible. It is only your beliefs which dictate what you can and cannot do.

Churches unite to act on food poverty: 600 leaders from all denominations demand Government U-turn on punitive benefits sanctions
‘The shocking scale of food poverty in Britain is exposed today by new figures showing record numbers of people are reliant on handouts because of punitive benefits sanctions.
More than 900,000 people were given emergency food in the past year, an increase of 163 per cent, according to figures from the Trussell Trust, the biggest food bank charity. The explosion in demand has coincided with an increase in those seeking help following a benefit sanction.
A coalition of anti-poverty charities, including the Trussell Trust, claims the figures show that the UK is breaching international law by violating the human right to food.
Separately, 600 church leaders from all major denominations, including 36 Anglican bishops, are writing to the Government today, calling for urgent action to address hunger among the poor.’

Fury over the £3bn Britain spends on foreign aid to groups who waste it (and it's been handed out despite MPs being told of the misuse)‘Ministers have handed out billions in foreign aid even after being told that much of it is being wasted, it can be revealed.
Since the election, the Department for International Development (DfID) has given £3.3 billion to 12 organisations that offer ‘poor’ or ‘average’ value for money.
Five have been judged by civil servants to offer ‘poor’ value for money. The other seven, including the European Commission, are deemed ‘average’. Shockingly, DfID has increased funding for five of the groups.
The revelation will further anger Tory backbenchers who vehemently disagree with David Cameron’s decision to give 0.7 per cent of the country’s output in aid.’

Controversy continues to rage over the artificial sweetener aspartame. Since it was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1981, aspartame has made its way into more than 6,000 food items.
The FDA claims aspartame is safe but has set an acceptable daily intake of no more than 50 mg per kilogram of body weight. In other words, an adult weighing 165 pounds should consume no more than 3,750 mg of aspartame a day. A can of diet soda typically contains about 180 mg of the chemical. That means the FDA’s “safe” limit equates to about 21 cans of diet soda per day.
But is any level of aspartame really safe?
For decades researchers have claimed aspartame is responsible for headache, memory loss, mood changes, and depression. Consumer complaints back them up. Over 75% of adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA concern aspartame. Reported problems include headaches, migraines, vision problems, tinnitus, depression, joint pain, insomnia, heart palpitations, and muscle spasms.
Recently researchers from the University of North Dakota wanted to test the safe limits of aspartame over a short period of time. They found that at just one half of the FDA’s “safe” acceptable daily intake, aspartame caused serious neurobehavioral changes including cognitive impairment, irritable moods, and depression.[i]
The researchers recruited 28 healthy university students for a 4-week blinded trial. Participants were given three meals and two snacks for 8 days. The food contained either high amounts of aspartame (25 mg/kg body weight/day) or lower amounts of aspartame (10 mg/kg body weight/day). After 8 days the participants entered a 2-week washout period and then crossed over to the other treatment diet.
Foods containing aspartame included jellies and syrups, puddings, gelatins, yogurt, ice cream, beverages, and desserts.
Aspartame Impairs Cognition
The researchers found that spatial orientation skills were significantly worse for participants after their high-aspartame diet than after their low aspartame period. Two participants also actually had clinically significant spatial orientation impairment after consuming high-aspartame diets.
Two other students experienced clinically significant impaired working memory.
In an earlier study of 90 university students, aspartame users reported longer memory lapses than non-users.[ii]
Aspartame Triggers Depression and Irritable Mood
In the North Dakota study, no students showed signs of depression after eating the low-aspartame diet. But the students became significantly more depressed after they consumed the high-aspartame diet. And after consuming the high-aspartame diet, 3 participants showed signs of mild to moderate clinical depression.
The participants also showed significantly more irritability after consuming the high-aspartame diet.
The researchers believed their results were consistent with an earlier randomized, double-blind, crossover trial which showed severe depression related to aspartame. In that study 40 participants with depression and 40 participants without depression were given even higher aspartame meals (30 mg/kg body weight/day) or confectioners’ sugar.[iii] That study had to be halted early due to severe adverse reactions suffered by the depressed participants who consumed aspartame
How does aspartame affect the brain?
The researchers noted that the chemical makeup of aspartame is in part responsible for its effects on the brain. Aspartame is metabolized to yield aspartic acid (an excitatory neurotransmitter), phenylalanine, and methanol. Methanol, also known as wood alcohol, breaks down in the body to formaldehyde.
Other researchers have reported an association between substantial increases in phenylalanine and aspartic acid, and reductions in dopamine and serotonin production following aspartame ingestion.[iv],[v]
The researchers point out that there are relatively few clinical studies of the neurobehavioral effects of short-term aspartame consumption. More research is needed especially on the long-term effects of daily aspartame use.
How can you avoid aspartame?
Aspartame has made its way into so many products it’s difficult to avoid. You’ll find it in diet sodas, instant oatmeal, yogurt, sugar-free gums, candies, flavored waters, hot chocolate mix, pudding, salad dressings, ice cream, children’s vitamins and thousands of other products.
You have to read the labels on all packaged foods especially if you are one of the millions of people who are sensitive to aspartame.
And just say no to those little packets in restaurants. Aspartame is marketed under the names “NutraSweet,” “Equal,” and “Spoonful.”
Instead try stevia. It’s a natural sweetener made from the leaves of a South American plant. You’ll also see it called “sweetleaf” or “sugarleaf.” Stevia is essentially calorie-free. Look for the less processed green stevia rather than the white powder form.
Honey and xylitol are other good natural options.

In a world of problems and solutions, few ideas spur both immediate hope and skepticism as the idea of free energy, and, on the brink of ecological disaster, nothing may be of greater importance to the human race.
The story of Nikola Tesla is a remarkable reminder of how our economic, political and media systems create our reality, because it shows how human ingenuity can be co-opted, shut-down, taken-over and hushed by powerful people with financial interests at stake. Fortunately, the legacy of Tesla lives on and people are now more interested than ever in his theories about cosmic energy and his patents for energy systems that could offer promise for liberating earth from dependence on fossil fuels.
Could it be that his vision has finally come to fruition and has been made available to the public, some 100 years after his patent for a fuel-less electricity generator?
“This new power for the driving of the world’s machinery will be derived from the energy which operates the universe, the cosmic energy, whose central source for the earth is the sun and which is everywhere present in unlimited quantities.” -Nikola Tesla
In March of 2014, a small group of independent engineers and developers released to the public open-source plans for a continuously running fuel-less electricity generator based on a patent by Nikola Tesla, and re-designed by inventor James Robitaille. Calling it the Quantum Energy Generator, or QEG, the portable device is supposedly capable of producing enough electricity to power a modern home, and is about the size and weight of a home gas generator.
“The Quantum Electric Generator system (QEG) is an adaptation of one of Nikola Tesla’s many patented electrical generator / dynamo / alternator designs. The particular patent referenced is No. 511,916, titled simply “Electric Generator”, and dated January 2, 1894 (see back of this manual). The adaptation is a conversion from a linear system, to a rotary system.
The QEG prototype is scaled to produce electrical power in the range of 10-15 kW (kilowatts) continuously, and can be set up to provide either 120 Volt or 230-240 Volt single phase output. We are also planning future designs to provide 3-phase power.” [Fix The World]
Developed by an organization known as the ‘Fix the World Council,’ and promoted by the lively Hopegirl, the prototype for the QEG was recently crowd-funded by over 600 independent contributors, and the plans for the QEG have been made available to the public for download here:
Download Plans for the Quantum Energy Generator here..
This means that the public now has access to the technical designs for this free-energy device, and if it works, and if it proves to be a viable option for creating electrical energy, then we may finally have the opportunity to bypass the energy monopoly and spread the technology of free energy to the world. In addition to downloading the publicly available open-source plans, people may also be able to purchase a pre-manufactured unit from an affiliated firm, so the race is now on for independent engineers and citizens to verify the efficacy of this declared revolution in energy.
“An effective way to understand the operating principal of the QEG is to think of it as a high-powered self-resonant oscillator (what they used to call a ‘multivibrator’), adapted to transform high-voltage pulses (15 to 25kV) into line voltage AC output, at current levels up to 120A. In today’s alternative energy terminology, it would be a type of resonance machine.
The circuitry that develops high power in this device is really based on an existing but under-utilized power oscillator configuration, however, the ‘quantum’ part of the design has to do with how the generator is started. Conventional alternators (AC generators) usually have a device called an ‘exciter coil’. This coil is usually a smaller, separate rotor winding that provides an AC voltage that is rectified and used to power the generator’s field coil(s).
In the QEG, there is no internal, common exciter coil, and no rotor windings. In addition, to look at the circuit diagram, it is not apparent where the input power comes from to start resonance, and this is key; the QEG exciter coil is external to the generator, and the excitation signal is conducted through the quantum field (zero point) into the generator core, to start oscillation. Once the machine builds up to the resonant frequency, it powers itself (self running).” -James M. Robitaille
Given the decades long propaganda campaign against free-energy, it will no doubt take some convincing to first prove to the public that harnessing cosmic or zero-point energy is possible, and then it will surely face a mainstream media blackout as well as persecution from government and industry.
Never-the-less, this is an exciting announcement and we challenge our readers to get the word out to help prove if this design is in fact what it claims to be.
Please have a look at the plans for the QEG, and pass them along to anyone who may be able to assist in the effort to verify and proliferate this technology.
Here is a video demonstration and explanation of the Quantum Energy Generator…
