What is Love?

The concept of love predates mankind as a species. Some claim, it is even older than time itself. Whereas our ancestors knew mutual respect, comradeship and shared understanding is essential to the continued survival of their tribe, we believe we perceive love in a more sophisticated light…but do we, really?

“One result of the mysterious nature of love is that no one has ever,
to my knowledge, arrived at a truly satisfactory definition of love.”

However, nothing can restrain the curiosity of spirit. Over the epochs, we have attempted to fit love into various categories, such as eros, philia, agape; perfect love and imperfect love and so on…In a very real sense trying to understand love is attempting to examine the unexaminable and to know the unknowable. It is different every time and with every person in very apparent but also quite subtle ways. Overall, love is too large, too deep ever to be truly understood or measured or limited within the framework of words. Its versitable, adaptible nature makes it beyond the explainable.

Scott Peck defines love as the will to extend one’s self for the purpose of ones own and anothers spiritual growth. I, however, disagree slightly…It is the compulsion to do so…
By use of the word “will”, he tried to transcend the distinction between desire and action. Desire is not necessarily translated into action. Will is desire of sufficient intensity that it is translated into action. The difference between the two is equal to the difference between saying “I would like to…” and “I will….” Thefore, the want to love is not love itself. After all, love is as love does. We cannot choose who we converse well with on a platonic level, nor can we choose whom we fall in love with. By defining love as an of will, he inferred that it is an act of intention as well as action. He argues, he we dont have to love, as it is a choice. In my professional opinion, this is only partially true. What when we like someone very much, each day we see them but never pursue them because we have decided not to? We would continue to feel a great deal of affection toward them, there would simply be no desire translated into action, which is rather essential for the bonding process to begin.

Yet, before we continue as to the reason why, it must be noted that in many cases, we may be motivated by something other than love without conscious knowledge, and that what seems to be love is often not love at all. One of the major distinguishing features between what we perceive to be love and that which is real love is the conscious or unconscious purpose in the mind of the person. Furthermore, love is a strangely circular process, which we expand our consciousness in an evolutionary sense.
In other words, when we love, we extend our limits, give our all, or even learn to love parts of ourselves that we don’t.

The act of “loving” is an act of self-evolution even when the purpose of the act is someone else’s growth. It implies effort. We can only extend limits by exceeding them, but exceeding limits requires work. However, when we love someone, this exertion appears to make the connection demonstrably real. It can make any sacrifice worthwhile. Moreover, as a form of energy, love can power the extra step, we take for others, if we let it. Just beware, love is not effortless. To the contrary, love is effortful.

Falling in Love

“Of all the misconceptions about love the most powerful and pervasive is the belief that “falling in love” is love or at least one of the manifestations of love.”

It is a potent misconception, because falling in love is subjectively experienced in a very powerful fashion as an experience of love. While we are still wearing rose-coloured glasses, we perceive a romanticized image of the person rather than the person itself. When we fall in love what we certainly feels is “I love him” or “I love her.” More importantly, two complications become immediately apparent:

  1. The experience of falling in love is an intimate experience directly related to our sexual desires. We do not fall in love with just anyone. Even though we may love our family and friends very deeply, we do not fall in love with them on a whim. Often the attraction predates the decision to simply be friends. We typically fall in love only when we are consciously or unconsciously sexually motivated.
  2. The experience of falling in love is temporary. No matter whom we fall in love with, we sooner or later, we fall out of love should the relationship continue long enough. This is not to say that we ultimately cease loving the person, but the honeymoon phase ends and the rose-coloured glasses must be discarded.

To understand the nature of the phenomenon, it is necessary to examine the nature of our ego boundaries. As infants, we do not distinguish between ourselves and the rest of the universe. The animate and the inanimate are the same. There is no distinction yet between I and thou. We and the world are one. There are no boundaries, no separations. There is no identity, just personality traits in the early stages of development.
With experience, a sense of the “me” begins to develop. This interaction between the infant and the parents is believed to be the ground out of which the child’s sense of identity begins to grow. It has been observed that when the interaction between the infant and its parents is disturbed. For example, due to the breakdown of the family unit [i.e. when there is no parent, no satisfactory substitute or when because of their own mental illness, they are uncaring or uninterested, then the infant grows into a child or adult whose sense of identity is lacking in the most basic ways.]

The development of such boundaries is a process that continues through childhood into adolescence and even into adulthood. Generally, the boundaries established later in life are more mental than physical. For instance, at every stage of life, we typically come to terms with the limits of our power on various levels. For instance, it is namely known as the “terrible twos” because of this learning curb. It is the hope and feeling of immediate gratification that can make any twoyear-old usually attempts to act like a tyrant and autocrat, trying to give orders and respond with regal fury when they won’t be dictated to. By the age of three the child usually accepts the reality of its own relative powerlessness.

“Still, the possibility of omnipotence is such a sweet, sweet dream that it cannot be completely given up even after several years of very painful confrontation with one’s own impotence.”

Although we come to accept the reality of our boundaries, we will continue to escape occasionally for some years into late adulthood.

Falling in love is the world of Batman and Captain America. By the time of mid-adolescence, we have already been conditioned that we are individuals, confined to the boundaries of our bodies and the limits of our power…that each one of us is a relatively frail and impotent organism, existing only by cooperation within a group of fellow organisms called society. Within this group, most of us are not particularly distinguished, but we often separate ourselves from others through our individual identities, boundaries or limitations.

In truth, it is lonely within the socratean confines of the fractured self. Some, particularly those who’ve suffered traumatizing experiences, perceive the world outside of themselves as unredeemably dangerous, hostile and unnurturing. Such people feel their ego boundaries to be a protecting and comforting influence. Through them, they find a sense of safety in their loneliness. However, the majority feel our loneliness to be painful, so yearn to escape from behind the walls of our individual identities to a condition in which we can be more unified with the world outside of ourselves. The experience of falling in love allows us this escape temporarily. The essence of the phenomenon of falling in love is a sudden collapse of a section of an individual’s ego boundaries, permitting one to merge his or her identity with that of another person.” We experience the sudden release of ourselves from ourselves. A surcease of loneliness accompanying this collapse of boundaries ensues and we feel freer than we did before.

In many respects, but certainly not all, the act of falling in love is an act of deep regression. The experience of merging with a loved one reminds us of a time when our identities were submerged in a unified state of universal consciousness. Along with the re-emergence of this microcosmic oneness, we also re-experience a sense of omnipotence which we had to give up in our journey to take form.

The unreality of these feelings when we fall in love is essentially the same as the illusion of separation. We feel the world at our fingertips with unlimited power at our disposal. However, just as reality intrudes upon the fantastical notion of omnipotence as an individual, so does reality intrude upon the fantastic unity of any couple in love. Sooner or later, in response to the problems or daily routine of life, our individuality reasserted itself. For example, he wants to have sex, she doesn’t. She wants to go out, he doesn’t etc.

Our desires are not always going to be in harmony with the wants of others. In the beginning, we can be who we are, pretending to accept and be accepted unconditionally, but honeymoon phase will ultimately pass. Over time, ego boundaries to snap back into place, which is when couples fall out of love. At this point they begin either to dissolve the ties of their relationship or initiate the process of real love.

Real Love

Actual love often occurs in a context in which the feeling of love is often lacking [i.e. hen we act lovingly despite the fact that we don’t feel all that affectionate].

Falling in love is not an act of will. It is not a conscious choice. No matter how open to or eager we may be for it, the experience may still elude us. Contrarily, it may capture us at a time when we are not seeking it, when it is inconvenient or even undesirable. We are as likely to fall in love with someone with whom we are obviously ill-matched as with someone more suitable. Indeed, we may not truly like or admire the object of our passion, just as we may not be able to fall in love with a person whom we deeply respect and with whom a relationship would be a decent match in all ways. This is not to say that the experience of falling in love is immune to discipline. To be frank, we are usually able to abort the collapse of our ego boundaries and give up our romantic interest. The struggle involved can be enormous. Furthermore, such a strategy is frequently recommended by mental health professionals, when a liaison is dangerous, self’destructive or inappropriate for either person.

Only disciplined will can control the experience, but it cannot create it.

In other words, we can choose how to respond to the experience of falling in love, but we cannot choose the who, how or when. We can’t control the nature of the experience itself.

Whereas falling in love is a partial and temporary collapse of ego boundaries, love is permanently self-enlarging experience. The extension of our limits requires effort. Once the comparatively short moment of falling in love has passed, we are usually none the wiser for the experience. When limits are extended or stretched, however, they tend to stay stretched. While falling in love has little to do with purposively nurturing our spiritual development or that of others. If we have any purpose in mind when we fall in love, it is to escape our own loneliness. We are certainly not thinking of enlightenment. Perhaps, after we have fallen in love and before we have fallen out of love again…

It is through reaching toward evolution that we evolve .

Falling in love is in fact very close to real love. The misconception that falling in love is a type of love is so potent precisely because it contains a grain of truth.

The experience of real love also has to do with ego boundaries, since it involves an extension of one’s limits. One’s limits are one’s ego boundaries. When we extend our limits through love, we do so by reaching out, so to speak, toward people, whose growth we wish to nurture. For us to be able to do this, we must first be attracted toward, invested in and committed to an object outside of ourselves, beyond the boundaries of self.

When we bond with an object outside of ourselves, we also incorporate a representation of that object into ourselves. For example, let us consider any hobby. When we develop an interest in something, like cooking, we start small but before we know it, we “love” doing it. Preparing our own meals instead of microwaving pre-processed junk gradually means more to us. We invest in learning the skills involved in performing that particular activity in order to improve. We inadvertantly learn a great deal about our abilities [i.e. strengths, weaknesses, how to overcome the limitations of either…]. We also understand more about our environment as well as the people surrounding us. For instance, historical context, preferences, problems, future possibilities etc.
Despite the fact that the act happens outside of us, through our attention to it, it comes to exist within us. Our knowledge of it and the meaning it has for us are part of him, part of our identity, part of our history, part of our wisdom. In doing so, we have incorporated it in quite a real way within ourselves, and through this incorporation, we expand our consciousness.
What transpires then in the course of many years of “loving”, of extending our limits in the act, is a gradual but progressive enlargement of the self, an incorporation within of the world without, and a growth, a stretching and a thinning of our ego. In this way, the more and longer we extend ourselves, the more we love, the more blurred becomes the distinction between the self and the world. We become identified with the world. And as our ego boundaries become blurred and thinned, we begin more and more to experience the same sort of feeling of ecstasy that we have when our ego boundaries partially collapse and we “fall in love.” Only, instead of having merged temporarily and unrealistically with a single object, we have merged realistically and more permanently with much of the world.

Addiction – Where does it end?

Prior to 1779, the term referred to a state of being, in which we develop a penchant for a specific type of thing. Before that year, addiction was perceived more as a habit than a physiological condition. However, we realise today, there is very little difference. When it comes down to consciousness engineering, we can become dependent on almost anything. After this point of human development, we began to add to our understanding of how simple substance abuse can lead to severe health complications, especially for those who mix and match. Naturally there are those, who are more susceptible than others, but nothing is unbeatable.

Bottling up trauma may lead to inadequate coping strategies that are often perpetuated in adult life.

When we ask ourselves, what if I will never be able to stop? What if I don’t want to stop? What if there are days that I do and days that I don’t? What if those around me don’t support me as much as they enable me or themselves?

It all depends on the choice of poison but the symptoms of behavioural conditioning are universal. When we are deprived of something that we depend on, then we may experience a painful transition until we have overcome our dependency issues. Still, in actuality, everything shapes our consciousness. Even the smallest things can alter the way we think, speak and act. In fact, they have to for us to evolve, but they also further our devolution.

To maintain control constantly means to never be able to let down our guard. It means to avoid any and all mind-altering things in the multiverse, which is an impossibility. But, where do we draw the line? When does indulgence become dependency? We may distinguish right or wrong through the rule of law, although we know it’s not that simple. Nothing in life ever is…

When we contemplate the use of any mind-altering substance [ranging from pharmaceuticals, cannabis to alcohol], there is an underlying reason. Pain relief, for example, on a psychological as well as physical level. As a rule, the kind of substances we can access easily determines how lethal self-medicating is our society is. When over the counter medication or supplements have a higher dosage of certain compounds than medically advised, their destructive nature makes them more than an easy sale.

Anything can be addictive. In all fairness, everything that we cannot live without fosters a state of dependency. It creates a state of being, in which our lives revolve around habits, we cannot break. It seems important at the time, even if we know it will destroy us.
Many of us wake up in the morning and start their day with a drink to keep the hangover at bay or a cigarette to satisfy their bodies nicotine cravings. I’m not one to talk, but I know what it’s like and it doesn’t end well.

“Certain processes which should be regarded as the abnormal functions of the individuals psychology now commence with the rise of the desire for material possessions [wealth and property] the desire for sexual contact and the sense of self-respect which materialises into the desire of self-glorification and the exercise of power over those outside oneself, which all come step by step, in succession. Here, the entanglement of consciousness is complete, and this is what is known as Samsara, or the painful earthly life. It is unfortunate that the mind of man does not rest even with this self-degeneration and, by process of time, getting itself accustomed to this condition, as if it is its natural state, forms its philosophy of ‘it is better to rule in hell than serve in heaven’. The result of this is the formulation of erroneous philosophies such as materialism, scepticism, agnosticism, pluralism, formalism, such as we find in the addiction to mere ritual, as well as the several arts and sciences which man regards as his highest achievements today but which are intended only to rationalise and perpetuate the condition of entanglement of consciousness with objects of various kinds, into which is has already descended. Even the so-called impersonal sciences of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and empirical psychology appear to be valid only so long as nature is regarded as external consciousness. A philosophy based on this bifurcation of experience cannot therefore save consciousness from the pains it suffers in entanglement.”

– Swami Krishnananda

The mind seeks to interpret the universe through the senses. However, there is a distinction to be made between relative existence and reality. In its absolute state, reality is self-sustaining…It cannot be interpreted through anything within the confines of our multiverse, only that which gave rise to them. So where does it end? Prior to time and space…in a timeless, spaceless void, where all is one.

Implications of an Empirically-Testable Model of Consciousness Transmigration

(Abridged Version)

Death Is An Illusion

We often perceive death as the opposite of an explainable mystery. Death is not a cool puzzle designed to be solved, as long as it is depict as eternal nothingness. We only fade into nothingness, when our mind is empty, when our conscious, our unconscious and our collective consciousness has merged…when there are no more desires to be fulfilled as they have all been extinguished.

Energy is neither created nor destroyed, only transformed. Nothing truly dies…We always come back, and as soon as we realise this, we can choose to remember. Death is the process of consciousness transmigration that occurs when self-realisation has not yet occurred. In truth, we live, we die and we come back to repeat the cycle. Those that remember consciously display signs of what clinical psychologists refer to as delusions of grandeur…However, in the higher echelons of society, it is a well-established fact, which is carefully concealed from those that don’t know what they’re meant to be looking for.

Appearances are deceiving…We do not exist in a singular, solid form. In truth, we are formless. Our consciousness, which is the spirit of all existent and non-existent things, is Light. It is the light that shines across the whole of space-time from prior to the multiverse itself.

Light is Love. Light is Peace. Light is Knowledge…

And last but not least, Light is Existence.

Truth be told, we are at war. The hoardes of men that travel across the seven seas are strategically distributing themselves across the world… They do not seek multicultural diversity or refuge, they wish to establish their own ideology without the freedom of choice. Liberty is being engulfed by darkness, but light will always shine through. Who we are to them is irrelevant. Who we are to our leaders is irrelevant. Who we are and how we are perceived is but a passing phase. Our identity doesn’t change, simply because it is demanded of us. Our immortal soul is who we are on the surface of the cosmos, but who we truly are underneath is beyond description or even the concept of immortality. It is prior to the determining factors of our self-consciousness or individuality…

“Mathematically, the probability of consciousness ending is zero.” (Lipton, Bruce) Consciousness is the basis of existence. Furthermore, there is a reason it is often perceived to be without beginning or end. For the purpose of explaining something that is beyond thought and language, that which existed prior to space-time is often playfully described as nothingness or a void of cosmic oneness. However, it is not for those that have experienced anything close to such an indescribable concept…It is pure being. The essence of which pervades all.

8 Ideas Bigger Than Religion

Truths We Like To Forget – Part 1

There’s a place in a galaxy far in the distance, secretly hidden behind a dark Nebula in the shape of a Horsehead (if you stare at it long enough)…A planet that was once filled with lush, green forests and fields that stretched on for continents. This was a place, where the people lived in harmony with nature under the Gods of Old. Yet, every now and again, a shadow would fall over the land, as the rulers of the land sent forth the Giants, reducing the uncontrolled growth of the global population. Over the generations, the people grew dissatisfied and rose up against this culture of violence. They had grown weary of fear and drove their Gods into the mountains, where some of them have remained until this day. Others fled into the surrounding areas of the cosmos, watching from afar, waiting…

As more time passed, we began to forget year by year. A handful of enlightened spirits returned again and again. In every age, they guided humanity away from its new shadow leaders to freedom.

The wise know all too well that every species undergoes events of natural destruction, either brought on by the cosmos or themselves. The time is approaching for another such event to take place, yet it has not been engineered by aliens or galactic forces, but a minority of our own people. Every man, woman and child will have to fight for their very survival, but sadly a majority of them will be unprepared. Political leaders that are mere puppets to the powers that be will induce the downfall of our modern global civilisation… There will be a gruesome battle across the Mediterranean, as invaders will lay siege against the Vatican. All will be destroyed, before invaders will break through to its secrets vaults. Yet, nothing will be lost. Not only the Akashic Records carry this information that can be accessed from anywhere, copies will also remain on Earth held by only a small elite.

In the view of a sadistic, narcissistic psychopath, the freedom you hold is an illusion that they have created to pacify you. Yet, they rely on the attachments that you have formed in the world. Your family, friends and every single one of your needs as well as desires makes you vulnerable, since they can easily be controlled or even replaced with toxic substances that make you even more reliant on their costly medical care. From the moment of birth, we not only repeat a cycle of birth and death…They ensure that few shall never break free.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a process of continued assimilation through violence and silent genocide. Your life is in the hands of people that you may not even believe exist…People that laugh at how many wholeheartedly believe they are free in a world where freedom is illegal. If this possibility does not scare us, or does not validate further investigation, then our ignorance of the world, we live in, may become a prison that we cannot escape from.

However, if we become so afraid of losing that we never try, we shall never dare to win. Spiritually speaking, if we are pure of heart, then all we can do is win, even if we suffer seemingly irreconcilable losses. One of the most important truths that we have forgotten is the power of our being. The power that any ordinary person can change the world.

In a world, where what you believe is designed to serve a carefully thought-out purpose, believe nothing and question everything. Be kind, but do not destroy yourself. Honour the essence of your being and trust that there are higher powers at work, which can never be harnessed through dark deeds or for dark purposes.

What Is Real? What Is Unreal?

How can we be certain that our eyes do not deceive us, as they so often do? How can we be sure that what our senses tell us is actually real? And how can we trust anyone that simply dismisses such enquiries, when others wholeheartedly believe they already know the truth? In short, we cannot.

When we trust, we are taking a leap of faith. We extend a curtesy to a stranger that may be our salvation as much as they may be our undoing. If it goes horribly wrong, you can be certain that you’ll be reminded of the fact often enough… If it doesn’t, many will make certain that you know it should have done. On reflection, one cannot win nor lose, only learn from experience.

When circumstances feel as if they’re turning into the surreal, like the current political situation…We can be guaranteed that our intuition will lead the way to the truth, as long as we don’t live in a world of wishful thinking. No matter, for as long as we cannot see our internal and external reality for what it is, we may never realise the truth… In fact, our view of reality is more likely to shatter into countless pieces than be reconciled with the bigger picture.

Although we may never truly know anyone, we cannot spend our lives in distrust for something that has happened or might happen. We must learn to live in the present moment, if we wish to know the truth about our multi-dimensional reality, in which time is a mere sequence of moments interpreted by our consciousness. On a deeper level, time represents change. (In Sanskrit, they even share the same word.) This leads us to the question, how can something feel real, when in truth it is not?

Our senses can trick us into believing almost anything. Therefore, it is our responsibility to apply critical thinking to discern the real from the unreal. That being said, there is a simple rule, when questioning reality: If it is finite, it cannot be infinite. (Its source may be, but the object and/or subject is not) This rule of thumb makes things easier, but it can still be very confusing when putting theory into practice. In other words, that which is real cannot be manifest in relative existence, outside of the realm of self-realisation. Conversely, that which is unreal cannot be manifest in the absolute, or ultimate, reality.

For what it’s worth, religion may guide you in your search for deeper meaning, but it cannot lead you to enlightenment via a path that has been taken by others. Only a handful of practices are common denominators shared by all enlightened spiritual teachers, which are deep contemplation, meditative concentration and gratitude. The path to self-realisation is uniquely tailored to you. You cannot walk it in the footsteps of another or in honour of an ideal that was corrupted long ago.

Beyond ego and appearance, we are all one in heart, mind and spirit…We originate from the same source. Regardless of our religious traditions or personal beliefs, we share a universal spirit that has its roots in pure consciousness.

8 Ideas Bigger Than Religion

What is religion, but an idea? A concept that has cosmic transformative potential… However, any idea can be turned in on itself to become the very thing that it stands against. When we speak of religion, we do not speak of our way of being. We mean how devoted we are to an imaginary deity in the sky that we would either run from screaming or pay hard cash to abduct us. In other words, we neglect the very foundation of religion that consists of ideas, which are much bigger than any organised religious system. Continue reading

Enlightenment Versus Submission


What is the concept of religion? Or more importantly, why is it?


Religion has become an all-encompassing system that functions in all essence like a corporation. The Vatican, for example, is an arms stockholder and a bank with great influence in the corporate community. Our modern representation religion has strayed far from its intended purpose…It no longer serves as a voice of reason or compassion, but detachment from the people that it serves. Corruption in any institution can only take hold, if organised elements within it act on delusional beliefs that do not benefit the greater whole. Although many religious scriptures are hardly embodiments of peace or provide more than a handful of useful principles, not all of them have been edited, suppressed or destroyed. Some still offer guidance toward understanding a higher power…an essence that existed prior to this multi-verse.

More Than Human

There’s a place,
Where you can set your illusions on fire
And watch them burn.
Out of the ashes of all lost hope,
A newly conceived dream rises.
The endeavor of peace…
Of brotherhood…
Of a united species with a single objective.
The attainment of truth.
A future that hangs in the balance.
Injustice persists,
When good men fail to act.

There’s a place,
Where with every passing day,
More blood is shed in wars over resources.
More of the arctic melts away,
Flooding the shores.
Greed and lust for power masquerades,
As the assertive hand of peacekeeping.
The clock slowly ticks away,
Whilst each and every idea is gift-wrapped,
As the intellectual property of the new world.
Exposure to toxic chemicals is increased.
Injustice persists,
Since good men fail to act.

There’s a place,
In which knowledge flows
Through the fabric of reality…
In which nothing is as it seems,
Happiness is a choice,
And the truth will set you free.
Peace represents a state of harmony,
Created out of mere kindness…
By the desire of the species
To share with one another
Without condition or consequence
In such a way that has no end.
To act in kind,
Even against all the odds.

Awakening of Consciousness

Status

Just when you’re not looking, the purpose of your life unfolds. However small it may be. You unknowingly become a part of the evolution of the species through your own thoughts, words and deeds. The responsibilities are minor in comparison to the change in hearts and minds that you can invoke. And the world shall be yours for the taking, if you are capable of carrying the weight of it upon your shoulders.

Shamanic Physics

The Observer Effect

According to the first hypotheses of the relationship between modern physics and shamanic practices, Fred Alan Wolf concluded that all shamans perceive the universe as being made from vibrations. Within physics, vibrations are repetitive patterns that can be observed in the simplest physical systems. That being said, from the movement of sound through the air to the invisible vibrations of light waves speeding through the universe are all evidence of vibrational motion. Consequently, Wolf discovered that there were even more subtle vibrations, which were contained in the probability waves of subatomic and atomic matter. These waves possess a vibrational pattern, yet they also play a key role in determining how probable physical events are to take place. Whenever in time or wherever in space an event manifests are governed by the strength and amplitude of these waves. Quantum waves are invisible. They are constructs of human thought necessary for the modern world to enable an understanding of atomic and subatomic matter. For any event to manifest, these waves coming from the future and the present or from the past and the present must interfere with each other in the present. The Anglo-Saxon Shamans themselves viewed the universe as a web consisting of vibrating strings. However, when contemplating the observer effect, which in essence describes that the act of observation alters the phenomena of being observed, one should be aware that the quantum system itself would not be able to operate in the same manner, if it was to be observed as a whole. It is known that quantum waves exist through space and even beyond time. In addition, they are possess the capacity affect matter. Yet, most individuals neglect that there would have to be an intelligence behind the observed for it to alter its behaviour. In the Bohr interpretation of quantum physics, these waves would vanish the instant any observation of matter occurred. In fact, the observation was imagined as the sudden collapse of the wave producing a particle of matter. According to Paulis exclusion principle, electrons have the ability to exclude each other from entering each others territory. Atomic energy structures are possible only due to electric exclusion. According to Pauli, photons, particles of light, possess the ability to include each other. They are able to enter each others territory and in fact have a strong tendency to do so, thus the phenomena is termed photon inclusion, which resulted in the development of laser technology that would not be able to operate outside of this fact. Henceforth, during an altered state of consciousness, the observer of a quantum system disturbs the system by the mere act of observing it.

Difference Between Resonance and Vibration

According to the teachings of the Quabala, the universe was constructed from vibrational sound patterns of three Hebrew letters, which are “aleph”, “mem” and “sheen” in an interplay of spirit, matter and consciousness. That which is known as consciousness is consistent of waves of information that move from spirit into matter and then back into spirit. This flow of waves took place outside of time. In the sense that the whole action of that movement was instantaneous. According to quantum physics, any conscious experience also results from a double movement of a wave action. This wave action also occurs beyond space and time. It is a wave of possibilities, that is known as quantum wave function. It moves from the present to the relevant time and then returns to the present moment. As shamans chant sacred songs and chants in order to invoke spirits of all kinds, the connection between sacred chants and the language used by, for instance, Qabalists. Often, a resonant transfer of vibrational energy from one individual to another is symbolized during rituals and practices. In countless traditions, healing is also viewed as a transfer of vibrational energy within the body. When the body falls ill, parts of it are out of harmony with the rest of it. All organs and cells vibrate. Hence, the practice of radionics has become more widespread within Western Medicine. It is often believed that when an organ is no longer receiving vibrational energy from the rest of the body, it is vibrating at another or the wrong frequency, thus it is out of harmony with that which nurtures it. Therefore, healing could simply consist of reinvoking those sacred sounds within the body, which is very similar to the practice of Atharveda within Hinduism. For instance, in the shamanic tradition, the chanting of the world “wolf” would invoke the presence of the wolf itself. Thus if one sang the name of a wolf in a sacred manner, a wolf would appear. Shamans do not simply view things interacting with things producing a cause and effect relationship, yet they view it as a web of interconnectedness, which is very close to the kind of interconnectedness that can be observed in old fashioned and present day quantum models. In physics, this is referred to as non-locality, which describes actions taking place in one location can instantly affect actions in an entirely different location. The process of energy resonating within the hunter that may attract animals of prey, such as a wolf, deer or even edible type of bear. In conclusion, resonance vibrations would differ from individual to individual. One may even hypothesize that it could be unique to the individual. However, vibrational modes of the body can be altered by stress and illness. Thus, when the resonance of the body is adjusted to attain a homeostatic state, the body would attune to the sound and harmonize.

Purpose of Shamanic Ritual/Initiation

Shamans will utilize any device to alter a patients belief in regards to reality. Whilst doing so, the shaman can also choose that which is physically meaningful and see all events as being universally interconnected. There are two important events in the consciousness strand of the web between a shaman and the individual that is in need of shamanic healing energies. Both events are observed in a testing ceremony. The first event is when the shaman convinces himself or herself that he or she possess a genuine shamanic power. Shamans are ordinary human beings themselves, therefore they must test themselves every single time they conduct a healing ceremony. The second event occurs when the individual that is expecting to be healed in convinced that the shaman has the power to do so. In conclusion, there are two event points, as it may, of consciousness that are required in order for the shaman to be true. Both individuals, client and shaman, require the belief that this special kind of power is being held by the shaman. Therefore, in the world of the shaman and his patient, a particular initial event, which acts in the manner of convincing both parties, and a particular final event, which convinced the patient that the shaman is in possession of healing powers, must be meaningful for both partners in this dance of healing. All of Wolfs hypotheses point toward the observer effect. The patient is required to be prepared. According to quantum rules, the rules that govern the behaviour of matter, an observer must prepare the state of the system that he or she hopes to observe. It is merely logical that the patient, the individual necessitating the healing, would be required to prepare his or her own mind and body in a manner significant to the ritual. According to the Jungian model of psychology, there are four separate psychological functions. Thought and feeling represent two complimentary functions, as do intuition and sensations. Wolf conceived a model of the Jungian functions based on quantum physics. Accordingly, a thought is complimentary to a feeling in the same manner that the position and the momentum of a particle causes the position of it to become indeterminant and vice versa. In a similar manner, it is not possible to simultaneously hold a thought and feeling about something. One causes the other to become indeterminant. Jung noted that during personality development that one function can often mature at the expense of another. Henceforth, during rituals such as firewalking or swallowing lighted butter lamps, shamans will literally perform almost any action in order to convince the client to change their belief structure. Although shamanic practitioners are very sincere, they can use gullibility or psychedelic beverages, such as ayahuasca, and any form of trick to alter their clients own consciousness in order for them to accept the existence of a power, an archetype from the imaginal realm, which is more profound that the clients own mind.

Shamanism & Geomancy

Geomancy is a traditional way of divination based on intuitive contact with the subtle energies of the Earth. It belongs to a large family of divinatory methods founded on that which modern mathematicians refer to as binary or base 2 numbers. The most well known of this family is most likely the I Ching, also referred to as the book of changes. The principle underlying these methods are universal, as certain random or quasi random events can be made to produce one of two definite results. To the geomancer, the entire world was a pattern of meanings that could be caught by the perceptive eye and interpreted by the attentive mind. Certain locations upon planet earth have been even assigned essences and personalities. Along my travels, however, I have encountered one which is still significantly potent. Due to the recent electromagnetic changes of the earth, perhaps even more so. It is the Isle of Thanet. Otherwise known as the isle of death, the hiding place of the white witches and the dumping ground of great Britain for centuries. Yet, it’s essence is clearly felt. Winston Churchill remarked upon the eerie nature of the former island. It should be noted that these places of power have different types of energy associated with ancient sites. These are not only ley lines, there is also another form of spiritual geography. It is possible to measure additional geophysical properties in these other sites. For instance, prehistoric stone structures in Cornwall showed radiation anomalies, which could either be reminiscent of an ancient nuclear war that has been evidenced around other prehistoric structures on the globe.
There are two forces acting within us. The quantum force of the electron exclusion tends to keep things separated. The quantum force of photon inclusion tends to bring things together. Between these two forces of exclusion, which enables atoms to form all of the molecular to communicate with each other and vibrate synthetically, human life exists. It could therefore be argued that as all is composed of energy, it is probable that locations, certain time frames and even individuals possess unique energies, which in turn define, yet also reveal, the nature of the before mentioned object or subject in question. Conclusively, shamanic physics is the entire nature of geomancy. Humankind has been sensitive to the subtle energies of locations for centuries, it is only in the last hundred years that mankind has slowly faded out that very ability through the lack of utilizing it. In modern times, steel frame buildings uilt on an economic bias have come to replace the ancient geomantic bias. Perhaps this loss of ability has occurred due to the desire to coomunicate with one another over vast distances and hold energy as well as power at ones fingertips. The electromagnetic spectrum has extended into mankinds sensorium, as it may. It provides information, heat, and illuminates dark spaces. The lack of usage of geomancy has caused the ability to utilize it to degenerate, as the imaginal realm vanishes into fantasy.

Five Senses

The first five senses of humanity are normal ones. Then one has to consider the imaginal senses. The sense of self-healing, the sense of self-destruction, the sense of penetration, to be able to penetrate other levels, other worlds and other dimensions, the sense of perception, to be able to see and comprehend that which one perceives in those other worlds. And the sense of revelation, to be able to use that which one has perceived as it has been revealed. These are the ten senses that the Chumash work by. There appears to be principles of life based on the mind that have been lost throughout history. These are principles of healing that appear to be universal in essence. It should be noted that mechanical action occurs when life becomes unconscious. As if it becomes dead in its thinking by becoming mechanical in operation. Yet, the mind creates mechanical action by creating least action paths, as Wolf describes it. These paths became the unconscious mind. The body-mind which attends the survival of the individual. The consciousness, the spirit itself, is a very significant part of healing, which in modern medicine is often neglected. Within Buddhism, similarly to shamanism, all illness arises from three root poisons. Attachment, Aversion and Ignorance. The metaphorical gesture of removing the illness, by sucking on the head for instance and then spitting it out, for instance, utilize visualization and healing that has travelled to the corners of Western civilisations by mere efficiency without being directly or indirectly related to shamanism. The imaginal realm has a rather important, yet more often than not overlooked, role within modern society. Out of these five imaginal senses, certain ones are generally trained better. For instance, black shamans are often advised to take caution, when it comes down to cursing individuals, as their ability to heal diminishes and eventually vanishes. The sense of self-destruction, which is often known as self-sabotaging, can be overcome through the sense of self-healing and a sense of revelation. This is rather reminiscent of Jungs and Freuds wish for death and wish for life, which could easily be interpreted as that imaginal sense as well as desire for healing as well as destruction. Perhaps the desire for death represents the yearning to return to a state of complete or true enlightenment. The desire to return to a non-physical state of being. For instance, through the sense of self-healing, the shaman can also attain the knowledge of how to heal and help others, the shaman could for instance produce a healing vibration in the patients body. When the patient tunes into the vibration, they are healed. Wolf suggested that this act of tuning would most likely be related to the vibrational frequency of a quantum wave of probability. The frequencies of these waves are related to the energies of the particles, which tend to manifest where the wave interference patterns are thickest. The lowest frequency waves would therefore have very long wave-lengths.

Time-Travel & Dimensional Travel

Shamanic practitioners have been able to reach a state of consciousness, which is reminiscent to sleep. Scientists have identified the brain wave pattern to be theta. Through this trance state, they remain awake. They have shifted their perception, whilst recognizing that their consciousness is not confined to their bodies. They see consciousness in everything. By choosing to observe themselves as spirits traveling over telephone wires or floating in thunderclouds, they are tuning to the consciousness in these objects. This is more or less an extended self-observation and that is precisely that which one must practice in order to regain ones lost senses and travel more effectively. Everything in nature undergoes self-observation. It is a process wherein each observer defines that which is outside of his or her self. The key here is learning to extend that which one calls the self beyond the normal boundaries. Self-observation occurs even in atoms. The atom exists in stable energy patterns known as states. In order to maintain a state of energy, the atom must recognize itself, observe itself to be in a state. If one considers that an observation is an interaction involving a transition between two states, the observer state and the observed state. When an object is being observed in the outside world, according to quantum physics, the state of the object suddenly takes on a discrete value. It appears in the world. And simultaneously, one becomes aware of it. If one considers that objects are not truly solid, the atoms of the object would more than likely alter their behaviour. One may consider the analogy of Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Nevertheless, the atom continually checks its energy state by constantly involving itself in its environment, even if the environment is simply empty space. Actually the electrons in the atom and constantly dancing, as it may, with the photons of light that they emit. Therefore, they are continually emitting and absorbing, or even observing themselves. “Consciousness requires minimum stimulation time of 0.5 seconds {neuronal adequacy}, no matter what the intensity.” [Eccles, 1965] Additionally, it is also known that mankind functions largely on an unconscious basis, one may not be entirely aware of the interactions and travels that occur. According to variant aspects of shamanism all agree upon one single reality. Within this one single reality without past, future or the passage of time, it is likely that only the present moment would exist. Time, therefore, is not merely illusory, it is also simultaneous. Yet, the words of Fred Alan Wolf seem more fitting in this context “The ability to transcend the death of the body-mind by the intent of the shaman alone to convince the underpart to form an ally, to become an accomplice, in it’s own death.” The ego technically becomes an accomplice in its own removal during the process of self-actualization or enlightenment.
Hypothesis: Increased energy signatures due to a form of energy transfer around certain periods of chronological time, as civilisations were more prone to observing the past and the future, which would technically linger within the neural cell memory or even genetic sub-code, as a kind of latent psychic ability, as it may.

Quantum Physics of Death

“There is more suffering the farther you go. The deeper you seek, the more you suffer, yet the greater is your gain, your insight and your vision.” Death, in essence, is a doorway. It represents a transition of consciousness within the quantum system. When the body is convinced that it is dying, the mode of reality perception shifts. It must, for the usual mode of perception, the one that have all acquired in life, is no longer carrying out its prime function, keeping the body alive. In Wolfs model of reality, the sensory apparatus perceives more than one is actually aware of. That which is perceived as being non-threatening is simply ignored. It is there, however. Within society. There are countless true dangers. Humanity lives in a highly artificial situation. We have dangerous means of moving ourselves at high speeds from one location to another. In an airplane, even though we may manage to fall asleep, we are constantly aware of the probability of danger. The same is true for a car, which is moving at high speed along the highway, or even in a house with electrical appliances surrounding the individual on a daily basis. The danger, however, is mollified rather severely. Each moment that passes without a negative event occurring soothes the individual into a false sense of security, although the danger is rather apparent. Once the individual has separated oneself from their natural environment, it takes approximately a week until the consciousness has adjusted to the situation and develops senses to aid the survival of the new circumstance. Nevertheless, within the Tibetan Book of the Dead, there are instructions on how to provide for the spirit after it has departed the body and is in a disorientated state. When an individual dies, they have to be incredibly evolved and powerfully oriented in order to move outside the body and overcome the sudden state of disorientation. The practice in shamanism is rather similar, as it utilizes a rubber hammer and tap the deceased on the head three times, then they begin to talk to him.
If one considers the holographic universe paradigm, one will notice that a hologram contains multiple images. By changing the light source that illuminates the hologram, different images will appear. The hologram has encoded in it a series of possible images. That which is seen is dependent upon how it is seen. However, similar to a hologram, one must know that to look for when experiencing a spirit. Senses that have been developed beyond the physical. In Einsteinian relativity the observers in relative motion would measure time and space intervals differently. If one were to consider whether the observer was moving superluminally, which is faster than the speed of light. According to relativity, the observer could not have a mass. In other terms, he could not be made of matter, as modern science could understand it. If the imaginal time passed perpendicular to time, therefore the individual could technically be reborn at the time of death.

Group Consciousness

A wise man once stated “We judge as we possess ego. Without ego, you cannot judge.” The absence of judgement itself is perceived as being a state of love. As discussed in the book, truth and love are synonymous, in essence. Conclusively, a reality, which is based upon the principle of interconnectedness would be similarly based upon the conception of unconsciously linking the psyche of a species. In contrast to a hive mind, the connection would be unconscious and would surface in circumstances of survival, extreme emotion or superior revelation. In consequence, I recently stumbled upon an article, which illustrated a neurocognitive epistemological perspective of shamanism and its effects upon the human mind. The biological foundation for a shamanic epistemology is indicated by the cross-cultural distribution of a shamanic cosmology derived from knowledge obtained during altered consciousness. These special forms of consciousness involve integrative brain conditions that access ancient ways of knowing, expressive systems which have evolutionary roots in the communicative and social processes involved in animal displays or rituals. These were augmented over the course of hominid evolution into expressive and mimetic activities that provided a basis for significant epistemological expansions of consciousness exemplified in shamanic out-of-body (OBE) experiences. These manifestations of consciousness involved new modes of self and processes of knowing, reflecting selection for expanded symbolic brain processes that enhanced psychological, cognitive integration and extra-personal cognition. Shamanic alterations of consciousness also contributed to experiences of personal spirit essences and encounters with extrapersonal spirit presences that reflected activation of innate brain operators involving self-structures and psyche. The evolution of the hominid capacity for knowing involved new understandings of nature (animism), mind (spirits), self (power animals) and others (gods) that were elicited by shamanic practices and expressed though a shamanistic ideology. These phenomena reflect activation of innate aspects of consciousness, illustrating features of shamanism as a neuroepistemology. Shamanism has conceptualized special forms of knowing embodied within the shamanic consciousness. The article related this phenomena to collective dimensions of consciousness that serve as a conscience of the universal mind. Winkelmann stated in another one of his academic papers on shamanism that “The ancient biological bases of shamanic rituals and their adaptive functions are illustrated by understandings of the nature of animal ritual, as provided in such works as The Spectrum of Ritual (d’Aquili et al., 1979) and Supernatural as Natural: A Biocultural Theory of Religion (Winkelman and Baker, 2008). An evolutionary biological approach to ritual illustrates that shamanic rituals have ancient roots and were built out of prior adaptations revealed in the homologous behaviors humans share with other species.
As shamanism is in favour of the existence of consciousness within all objects, I came across an old experiment that I thought rather relevant in regards to group consciousness that I recently rediscovered. In 1973, a collection of these ideas and out-of-the-box experiments involving plants was published in the book The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkinsand Christopher Bird. The book covers a wide range of topics related to plant life touching on the subjects of soil treatments, plant auras, force fields, plant communication, electromagnetism and extrasensory perception (ESP). In the chapter dedicated to Plants and ESP, the authors focus on the findings of the polygraph scientist Cleve Backster‘ (b.1924). In 1966, Backster was anInterrogation Specialist collaborating with the CIA in lie detection when out of curiosity he decided to attach the electrodes of one of his lie detectors to the leaf of his Dracaena. Backster intended to verify if the leaf would be affected by water poured on to its roots, and if yes, how soon. As the plant was sucking the water up its stem, the galvanometer didn’t indicate any changes. Instead of trending upwards like Backster expected, the pen on the graph was actually trending downwards. But it was what happened in the following minutes that changed Backster’s life and worldview. Being a veteran examiner on polygraphs, Backster knew that the most effective way to make the galvanometer jump was by making the person taking the test feel threatened. He decided to do the same with the plant, starting by dunking a leaf of the Dracaena in a hot cup of coffee, but with no results on the graph. Backster started to think about what would be the worst threat to the life of a plant – the imagery of fire came up in his mind, and at that precise moment the graph made a sudden upward sweep. Backster had made no movements toward the plant or toward the polygraph. Could the plant have been reading his mind? Or were they simply more aware than he was?
One group of parapsychological studies, the ganzfeld studies, have received more recent publicity, in terms of published articles examining the overall effect of the database, than has any other area of psi research. This attention is the result of detailed meta-analyses of the ganzfeld studies by a leading ganzfeld researcher, Honorton, and a critic of this work, Hyman. “Experimental Evidence Suggestive of Anomalous Consciousness Interactions” was published by the Department of Psychology in Edinburgh by Deborah L. Delanoy. The ganzfeld debate, often referred to as the “Honorton/Hyman debate”, will be summarised below, but first a brief description of a ganzfeld study will be presented. The ganzfeld technique consists of presenting a relaxed percipient with homogenous, unpatterned visual and auditory stimuli, which assists in increasing the mental imagery experienced by the percipient. While receiving this stimulus, the percipients verbalise all their experiences, their goal being to gain impressions which will relate to a sensorially isolated and remote target picture or short video clip. The “target” is being watched frequently by another person (a “sender” or “agent”) who is attempting mentally to convey impressions of the target to the percipient or “receiver”. These studies utilise a “free-response” methodology, in which the contents of the target material are unknown to the receiver (i.e., the percipient is “free” to respond with whatever impressions they generate, as he or she has no information regarding the specific contents of the possible target). The most common method of analysis used in ganzfeld studies is for the percipient or an independent judge(s) to compare the obtained impressions to four different target pictures/video clips, one of which is a duplicate of the actual target, looking for similarities. Using blind procedures, the judge has a one in four chance of correctly identifying the actual target (i.e., mean chance expectancy = 25 per cent “hit” rate). Study outcome is based upon whether similarities between the percipient’s impressions and the actual target enabled the target to be correctly identified significantly more often than chance would allow. For further information regarding this experimental technique, procedural details and methods of analysis, see Honorton, and Honorton et al. A meta-analysis of twenty-eight ganzfeld studies was performed by Honorton (1985), in response to a flaw analysis of the ganzfeld database conducted by Hyman (1985). Hyman found a highly significant overall effect in the database, but concluded that this effect was negated as he found a significant relationship between the study outcomes and procedural and statistical flaws contained in the studies. However, Hyman’s flaw categorisations were severely criticised by Honorton, and a psychometrician, Saunders, found faults in Hyman’s statistical analyses. Honorton’s meta-analysis found there were no significant relationships between study outcomes and quality. The overall composite (Stouffer) z score for the 28 ganzfeld studies included in the Honorton meta-analysis was highly significant (z = 6.6, p < 10-9, two-tailed). The effect sizes were homogeneous, overall and across experimenters. The discrepancy between the Honorton and Hyman analyses of the ganzfeld studies prompted a further meta-analysis by Rosenthal, an independent specialist in meta-analysis. Like Honorton, Rosenthal found an overall composite z score of 6.60 for the twenty-eight ganzfeld studies. His file drawer estimate agreed with that of Honorton, requiring 423 unreported, null studies to negate the significance of the database. Here it is worth noting that another critic, Blackmore conducted a survey to discover the number of unreported ganzfeld studies in 1980, prior to the Honorton/Hyman debate. Her survey found 32 unreported studies, of which 12 were never completed, and one could not be analysed. Of the remaining 19 studies, 14 were judged by Blackmore to have adequate methodology, with 5 of these (36 percent) reporting significant results. She concluded that “the bias introduced by selective reporting of ESP ganzfeld studies is not a major contributor to the overall proportion of significant results”. Rosenthal, after considering the possible influence of various flaws upon study outcome, concluded that the overall hit rate of the studies could be estimated to be 33 percent, whereas chance expectancy was 25 percent. In 1986 Honorton and Hyman published a “Joint Communiqué” in which they agreed that there was an overall effect in the database, but continued to disagree as to what extent this effect may have been influenced by methodological flaws. In their communiqué they outlined the necessary methodological precautions that should be taken to avoid the possibility of future studies giving rise to the same level of debate that had surrounded the previous ones. They concluded that more studies needed to be conducted, using the controls they had documented, before any final verdict about the database could be reached. Honorton and his research team proceeded to design a new ganzfeld system which met the criteria he and Hyman had specified in their communiqué. This system, and studies using it, are referred to as “autoganzfeld studies”, as much of the procedure is under automated computer control in order to avoid the problems found in some of the earlier studies. Before Honorton’s lab closed in 1989, 11 experimental series, representing 355 sessions, conducted by eight experimenters, had been collected using the autoganzfeld. Honorton et al. published a summary of the autoganzfeld studies and compared them with his earlier meta-analysis. The autoganzfeld sessions yielded overall significant results (z = 3.89, p = 0.00005), with an obtained hit rate of 34.4 percent (with 25 percent being chance expectancy). The effect sizes by series and by experimenter were both homogeneous. Comparing the autoganzfeld outcomes to those of the 28 studies of the earlier meta-analysis revealed very similar outcomes, with the autoganzfeld showing slightly better ESP scoring than that obtained in the earlier studies (autoganzfeld results by series: effect size or es = .29, earlier 28 meta-analysis studies by experiment: es = .28). Hyman, in 1991 [20] commenting upon a presentation of these results by the statistician, Utts, concluded that “Honorton’s experiments have produced intriguing results. If, as Utts suggests, independent laboratories can produce similar results with the same relationships and with the same attention to rigorous methodology, then parapsychology may indeed have finally captured its elusive quarry.”. Replications are currently being undertaken at various
labs; the only replication using a full autoganzfeld environment which has been reported to date was conducted at the University of Edinburgh [21], where the obtained significant, overall hit rate was 33 percent (z = 1.67, p < 0.05). This outcome is consistent with Honorton’s autoganzfeld scoring rate of 34.4 percent, and replicates Rosenthal’s hit rate estimate based on the earlier ganzfeld studies. The procedure for the Edinburgh study incorporated additional safeguards against subject and experimenter fraud. In conclusion, the findings from these meta-analyses suggest that consistent trends and patterns are to be found in the database. The consistency of outcomes found in the ganzfeld research, the robust PK effects, the modifying variables revealed by the precognition database, the variety of target systems displaying DMILS effects and the correlations found with personality traits are all indicative of lawful relationships. Given these relationships it is difficult to dismiss the findings as “merely an unexplained departure from a theoretical chance baseline”. Whether these effects will prove to represent some combination of currently unrecognised statistical problems, undetected methodological artifacts, or, as seems increasingly uncharacteristic of consciousness. Now, if one were to consider the ganzfeld effect in relation to group consciousness one may be able to imagine that the units that humanity have come to form would connect on a deeper level. For instance, race consciousness. Without any racial bias, african americans would naturally feel more drawn to and understood by their own kind. Yet, once one has gotten passed race, one could view the connection to ones gender as a form of consciousness, as it is consistent of a unique identity. Would it not be possible that individuals that believe or are drawn to the same archetype would be drawn to individuals with similar beliefs due to the law of attraction? Or even to its exact opposite, dependent upon the individual. Nonetheless, once one has moved beyond those groups, one arrives at the collective of the species, which would be innately responsible for the survival of the species, however what if life in this universe would be threatened and almost all alien and humanoid races were to be driven to near extinction, would the collective consciousness of all remaining beings not be focused towards survival in order for the dream to persist, as it may? But then, if all beings were to pass on around the same time, leaving not one being alive, would the dream truly persist for another billion years until new, intelligent life is created? Or would the focus shift towards sub-atomic or atomic life? If one considers the concept of group consciousness, which is probable from a quantum physics and shamanic perspective, the concept of solipsism would be increasingly evident at the core of every being, forming the collective unconscious out of group consciousnesses. There is only one negative aspect that I can observe, as I have listed out quite a few positive aspects, such as the increased capacity survival and the creation of reality through perception, illustrated by the ganzfeld effect that leads us closer to the true nature of reality. Nevertheless, the one negative aspect is the unconscious knowledge that separation within physical reality is illusory, which can create a void that cannot be filled.

Quantum Physics and Time-Travel with Fred Alan Wolf

Thank you very much for taking interest in my research into time-travel. It is most appreciated. Yet, it is important to remember that we are all interconnected at the very core of our consciousness, thus we, as a species, are all capable of so much more than mere mental time travel, remote viewing or prophetic dreams.

“Do not be tense, just be ready, not thinking, but not dreaming, not being set, but being flexible. It is being wholly and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come.” – Bruce Lee

7 Paths of Self-Realization

The Way of Beauty

 “Without this elusive, undefinable beauty, there is no art.”

Beauty is visible to those who have looked at life in all its forms, including the most horrifying or the most inane. Contact with beauty, with the whole of the transpersonal domain, is authentic only when it is preceded by contact with the shadow, the pain, the ugliness, and the banality in the inner and outer worlds. If this was not the case, each transpersonal experience, each piece of art would be nothing more than a means of escape from the phenomenal world. These are the moments of grace, moments of inspiration. Whether in sleep or in wakefulness, after the spur of inspiration has passed, perspiration follows. The finished product calls for skilful application, as it may. Another basic phenomenon involve in the process of inspiration is unconscious elaboration. Countless creative individuals have discovered that if they leave their work alone for a time, they return to find it modified and enriched, as though another part of their mind had been working on it, while they were occupied with other matter entirely. Entrusting the material to the unconscious has always been a highly effective and energy-saving method. However, in order for creativity to bloom, one condition appears to be essential in most cases, the pursuit of perfection. Inspiration is rarely sparked without hard work and a tireless search for perfection. Where others cease their efforts, another will experience relentlessness in his dissatisfaction and care for detail, allowing for the true creative work to begin. However, the quest for perfection serves in art, ethics and science to stimulate ones latent faculties, to guide and inspire the individual. An ideal elevates us and enlarges our perspective, allowing for the expansion and growth of consciousness. Without the beauty within the world, there would be no colours, no art, no imagination, no music, no poetry and no literature. Only nothingness. The phenomenal plane would appear much darker than it is presently, figuratively speaking. Elusive ideas can trigger inspiration within the vast corridors of the unconscious. Most artists place a great significance on their inspiration with the realization that any mental process regarded with interest grows and develops, whereas if it is ignored or treated with suspicion, it shrivels and dies.

 The Way of Action

The way of action does not begin with action, but with mind. One has to think of action in a new manner. For instance, this could be illustrated by the craftsman that carves magnificent pedestals, yet he would shrug off all thought of either praise or criticism, of ability or clumsiness and merely go off in the forest. There, his vision was purified, he was able to gaze at the shape of trees and select a form suitable for a pedestal, if he found one. If not, he would simply return home. Unfortunately, this state of grace has become a rare occurrence amongst humanity. Often we act with a purpose in mind, striving to satisfy a desire or eliminate a certain fear. To perform an action out of selflessness, duty or service, however, becomes the aim within the way of Action. Although it may often be a natural disposition to forget or care for others and the need to identify with them. Thus, service is one of the most effective ways of overcoming frustration and loneliness in order to bring one closer to the true self. It not merely the satisfaction from having been useful, but such actions also produce warmth and inner happiness. Within service, all available resources are directed toward the well-being of another, and it is then that the gloomy wall of separation gradually falls away. Care, for anyone, becomes a reminder of protection, security, happiness and unity, which if lacked during childhood can lead to immense repercussions later in adult life. Those who undertake to serve, however, come into contact with unfulfilment and pain. This experience more often than not changes the individual beyond the point of return. Their boundaries extend to include another human being or numerous. By directing ones attention to the world of another, servers forget themselves and their concerns. In this manner, without seeking it, they discover their own realization. True service is not merely concerned with temporary relief for those individuals, it is rather based upon the ability of the server to empathize with the individual that they are caring for. To comprehend their circumstances and allow them to discover inner strength and confidence to believe that they can stand upon their own two feet. One will eventually discover the infinite value within each and every being upon the planet, allowing for a greater capacity of compassion and empathy. It becomes a spiritual manifestation within the self achieved through the service to others, accomplished by individuals such as Gandhi and Mother Theresa. Yet, each transformation occurs gradually within time and hard work.

 The Way of Illumination

The first stage along this path is to simply clear oneself of all burdens, clutter, clouds and weights on the consciousness. This can be achieved through meditation, yet it is also possible through the means of mindfulness. The way of Illumination at times emphasizes the relationship with the physical world. As the treatment of the body affects the body, causing either heaviness or lightness. In addition, emotions can adversely affect the consciousness. For instance, such burdens can hinder the consciousness from expanding and opening, thus the individual must learn to free themselves from the tyranny of emotion and practice non-attachment. In order for the consciousness to become more agile and attentive emotions are at times chosen as a subject for meditation. Then same can be stated about desires. If one has become obsessed by them, the consciousness will continually be drawn toward something other than itself. However, it is neither right nor feasible to eliminate all desires. Yet, by taking a stand that is too profound, one can repress desires and involuntarily end up intensifying them. It is essential that life should not be reduced to a continual and exclusive pursuit of self-gratification. To learn how to be content with little. To discover inner simplicity, as it may. Ideas may also become an obstacle to the expansion of consciousness. It may be their content, thus the practitioner beings to look into ones assumptions. Conversely, a too profound reliance upon any conviction can prevent one from looking further ahead. During illumination, one ventures into states of consciousness that are above and beyond even the greatest notion, consequently one arrives at the point to re-examine ones relationship with the mental world. It is a path to become conscious of all without filters or preferences. This also allows for the practitioner to focus upon a single object to the exclusion of everything else, taking consciousness to a level of maximum intensity. Through introspection,  the individual can learn to retrace their consciousness to its source and let it emerge back into itself. In this manner, the practitioner becomes conscious of the self as empty of all content, unconfined by space and time. In order to be accurate and truthful, awareness must be receptive. Instead of producing formulas and applying them to the world, the individual receives the world into themselves. To be alert, open and vacant, in essence. According to Huxley, the state of grace at any level can only be achieved by cultivating alert passivity to the point of complete humility and selflessness. When the practitioner has freed themselves from stereotypes and abstractions they come to live in a richer and more intriguing world.

The Way of Dance and Ritual

Throughout the ages and in all civilisations, dance has been used an aid to higher knowledge and to mystical union with the divine as well as the cosmos. Within countless dancers biographies, there is ample amount of evidence of the transpersonal qualities of dance. Those who dance are able to step outside the confines of personal existence, transcend linear time and dive into ecstatic, mind-altering experiences. In essence, it unravels the mental and emotional patterns that have crystallized over the years in an individuals makeup, the individual comes to free themselves through performing the activity. This release occurs when dance follows a repetitive rhythm and every movement is foreknown. The mind is no longer weighed down with the responsibility of deciding which movements to make and which not to. It simply surrenders to the rhythm. However, within sacred dance the ritual aspect is more explicit. One is dancing in order to honour the divinity, to raise oneself to its level, becoming one with it. It is the moment in which ritual and dance truly become united to achieve a greater cause. Nonetheless, one can easily find rituals within daily life, sequences of predetermined actions that are distributed through the day. They serve to mark the passage of time, enabling one to take a mental break. It provides a resurfacing rhythm to ones life. Yet, they are also external means for generating a subjective universe. The gestures and movements of ritual, however are rather different from those of normal life. Sacred gestures, for instance, are not responses to actual circumstances, as they are not aimed at achieving a specific result. They represent a timeless dimension, untouched by chance. Furthermore, the deliberate action with which they are carried out suggests a incredibly sensible and attuned reality. All these factors generate a situation in which consciousness is naturally led to transpersonal levels. In addition, gestures and actions are predetermined, therefore they are empty and release one from the need to decide. Every ritual is a discipline to follow without any scope for individual originality. Its predetermined gestures can produce an inflow of transpersonal strength and open a door to an unknown, extraordinary world rather similar to dance.

The Way of Science

Science is a rigorous discipline, it teaches individuals to preserve even in the absence of enthusiasm, to avoid self-deception and to gain control of their thoughts and attention. It trains the individual to persist until they grasp a principle rather than stopping at partial solutions. It educates the individual to notice that events are linked, to identify structures and rhythms that are not immediately apparent and to leave behind a familiar approach or world in order to explore another, more objective one. The scientific method may only be a few centuries old, yet intellectual honesty, the ability to eliminate firmly entrenched mental patterns to see things are they truly are, is timeless. The belief that everything is possible, even realities that are uncanny or in opposition to the opinion of the mass. Furthermore, drawing an analogy consists in seeing similarity in two distinct entities or processes. For instance, to recognize an individual from a photograph means to recognize the resemblance between a living being and black and white marks on a piece of paper, which is an instant recognition of analogy. Yet, there are also new analogies, which enable individuals to construct concepts and invent devices,. One requires to make an imaginative leap from one reality to another to achieve the unthinkable. Science is often thought of an organized, rational tasks performed by means of systematic research aseptic laboratories. Instead a scientist often “feel” their way, as it may, relying at times on chance or on a series of favourable circumstances. Insight can often happen no other way, for the instrument and the processes used by the scientists are an embodiment of the old theories, the very ones that must be overcome in order to achieve progress. They obstruct discover, as they make no provision for it. Within the less structured universe of daily life and chance, in contrast, new ideas have full play to emerge in a less direct or even seemingly accidental fashion. Chance discover and invention are the very essence of the creative mind, fertile in its ability to recognize a microcosm of meaning and beauty in any event. However, the goal of science is not for those that wish to give in easily, nor is it for those who are content with little, or those who perceive they have already discovered a solution. Open-mindedness, curiosity, concentration and discipline become of essence to use all of ones resources in order to reach the goal.

 The Way of Devotion

“In the Way of Devotion, love is directed vertically towards the Supreme Being.”

Devotion offers profound riches, however it also demands absolute poverty. When all vital energies are concentrated on one point, all else loses its appeal. In order to proceed on the path of devotion, one requires to learn emotional detachment. Detachment, however, does not necessarily include disregard for other or the justification of violence, rather it stands for the freedom to regard nothing but the highest as absolutely essential. This state can produce a sense of lightness and joy unavailable to those that are weighed down by a thousand desires with the corresponding burden of worries or fear. The practitioner entirely surrenders themselves to love and service in numerous practices of devotion. In consequence, in the way of illumination, love encompasses all creatures, whereas in the way of devotion, love is directed vertically toward the supreme being. In the way of illumination, love is a mental attitude and it appears objectively within the hearts of the individual as well as in the nature of reality. Conversely, in the way of devotion, love is passionate and full of fervor. Detachment is commonly more pronounced. In the way of illumination, love is more often than not a consequence of freedom rather than a means of attaining it. In addition, rationality, although it must in the end be transcended, is at times accepted and even applied as an instrument for the expansion of consciousness. The way of devotion, on the other hand, is based upon non-rational self surrender. Yet, the higher one climbs along either of the two paths, they resemble one another. In conclusion, none of the ways toward the self are more direct and more explicit in their direction than to love the spirit, to desire it, to think of it at all moments and to eventually give oneself over to it in ones entirety. Love expressed to the source of all good produces warmth, conviction, enthusiasm and certainty. It becomes a perpetuation virtuous cycle. The intensity of this path is not merely a result, yet also a prerequisite. An essential condition of this way is that the object of devotion be numinous. Usually this is not the case, as there are countless idols to which an individual can be devoted such as money, pleasure, success and so forth. Devotion tunes into the object and enters its world. Therefore one requires to take caution, regarding what objects or individual one decides to focus ones energies upon.

The Way of Will

 The Way of the Will is called “the most direct”, “the most literal”, “the hardest”

The survival instinct is the oldest and most deeply engrained aspect of human nature, the boundary beyond which humanity often disintegrates. Existence inside this boundary is a pleasurable experience, yet if the individual were to approach the borders, they are often swiftly overcome by anxiety, terror and bewilderment. However, there are those that draw pleasure from such experiences, of going beyond. They discover that by challenging their attachment to survival, they are transformed and regenerated. These individuals tread the path of will. All those that follow this path are quite diverse, yet there are shared characteristics, such as the triumph over fear, the staring death in the eye and the pushing oneself beyond a given threshold. However, in order to overcome their deeply rooted inclinations, all of them apply the function that is defined by the act of will. The way of will may be the most direct transpersonal path, yet it is not always a safe one and it demands a profound amount of the individual. As its most decisive phase, the way of will proceeds without hesitation, ignoring the complexities of the subjective world. Those who travel along this path are often gifted with imagination, sensitivity and intelligence, yet when a crucial moment approaches, they set aside all superfluous ideas, images and feelings and act incisively and resolutely. Each transpersonal path is paved with issues and difficulties, yet the way of will is in fact the loneliest. Support is often available in other other paths in the form of general guidelines or encouragement as well as the experiences of others. However, the way of will offers no aid and no precedents. One is always the first to carve a track through the jungle, to break a record or to fight the establishment. In fact those who travel this path become a law unto themselves. Nonetheless, the way of will is also the most literal. On other paths, one is confronted with death in a metaphorical sense, yet on the way of will, ones life is actually at risk, perhaps coming even facing death itself. In very path towards the self, the individual consciousness moves beyond its previous sphere of experience and extends into vaster worlds. There are many different methods by which this expansion can be actualized. The networks of automatic responses that imprison one can be analysed, traced back to its origin or transcended. Whereas in the way of the will, it is shattered. With nothing more than will and courage, one overcomes limits and breaks new ground.

What is the “Self” and how does it relate to and unify the spectrum of experiences?

In referring to the transpersonal self, individuals have accumulated data on peak experiences, yet the self remains elusive and paradoxical. It can be illustrated by a thousand theories without being elaborated in its entirety by any. And yet, the self is present at all times. In conclusion, transpersonal phenomena possess an intrinsic existence of their own. They do not belong to a similar level of consciousness as other phenomena of the mind. All transpersonal abilities and experiences form part of a single family and stem from the same source, which is commonly described as the self in order to indicate the most authentic identity of each human being. In other terms, within the biological, psychological and spiritual make-up of a human being, there exists a higher transpersonal centre from which these experiences and abilities arise and originate. Above all, this centre is ones truest being. While ones ordinary sense of identity in founded upon boundaries and attachment, the self possesses a sense of identity based upon the pure awareness of being and unity with all that is. Its very essence is a consciousness free of all contents, beyond time and cultural conditioning. From it radiate higher qualities such as love, peace, joy, courage and strength. It is the source of creative inspiration and higher intelligence. It has a serene, broad perception, originating in a cosmic viewpoint. It is the ultimate life principle, possibly the deathless nucleus of each human being. The self, however is almost always invincible. At rare times, it causes particularly intense experiences, whereas for certain individuals it may become the centre around which the personality is organised. Nonetheless, it remains unconscious for the vast majority of mankind. Although it is fairly possible to achieve awareness of the self, such as expressing it in ones daily life or by recognizing it within others. Certain attitudes and techniques make this undertaking a possible attainment for a vast number of individuals. One cannot arrive at the full realisation of the self by accident, by mistake or unexpectedly, but only through a systematic approach that mobilizes all of ones attention and every resource at ones disposal. However, the self may also represent the next stage within human evolution. From this viewpoint, evolution is a process of self-organisation and self-renewal occurring at a biological, psychological, sociocultural and spiritual level.

Nature of Reality

Electromagnetic Reality

By shifting ones consciousness, one can attain a glimpse at alternate realities and other appearances that reality may take under certain conditions, however in essence, experience is the product of the mind, spirit, conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings. Each human being is therefore intimately connected with the construction of their own reality, in frequency without being aware of it at all. Basically, translating expectations into physical form. Henceforth, the world is meant to serve as a mere reference point, since the exterior appearance is a replica of inner desire. Yet, the very core of which reality is composed of is of a non-physical, electromagnetic nature. As all is energy, and all therefore is initially a frequency, each individual possesses their own energy blueprint, as it may. In fact, each being possesses a form of uniqueness and source of vitality beyond the that which the human eye is able to detect. For instance, emotions themselves have electromagnetic realities, which even affect the atmosphere itself. They group through attraction, building up areas of events and circumstances that finally coalesce, as it may, either in matter as objects or as events in time. However, feelings are more often than not transitory, yet underneath, there are certain qualities of feeling that are unique in each individual. Similar to deep musical cords. Essentially, they are the tones of the being, representing the core from which the individual forms their experience. All that is experienced possesses consciousness and each consciousness is endowed with its own feeling-tone, as it may. In fact, there is a profound amount of cooperation required in the formation of the earth, including the individual living structures of the planet to rise up from the feeling-tone within each atom and molecule. This energy that constructs the electromagnetic reality stems from the core of being, from all that is, representing a source of never ceasing vitality. Therefore, all of the energy and power is focused and reflected through each and every single living being in the direction of the three-dimensional existence. A mass consciousness as it may, which still possesses an identity. In general, we are all a portion of the before mentioned collective, whilst still maintaining our individuality and independence. For example, trees and rocks possess their own consciousness, while sharing a gestalt consciousness. The cells and organs within the body have their own awareness, as well as a gestalt one. Conclusively, the electromagnetic nature of reality implies that all is initially one, an interconnected whole, throughout the illusion of time and space.

Animal and Human Consciousness.

One of the numerous differences in animal and human consciousness would be the inherent conscious choice or even willpower over instinctual behaviours. The conscious mind allows humans to look outward into the physical universe and view the reflections of their spiritual activity, to perceive and assess the individual and joint constructions of the phenomenal world. Whereas human being may not be aware of the actual intelligence or manner of communication in all animals, there is one significantly large difference between species. Once a living being reaches a level of consciousness, the interpretation of the temporal reality becomes mainly reliant upon the conscious mind. Ideas and beliefs are created which then consequently structure experiences, creating either positive or negative emotions. Whilst an elephant may possess a higher capability of retaining memories than a dog, the ability to create reality linger, often in dormant potential, within all living beings. It should be noted that the lack of capability of communication or respect of life that has been given to other species upon this planet could quite easily be considered criminal within the eyes of a third, observing species. In consequence, countless animals may be of higher intelligence and intuition than previously expected. It has been known that cats are drawn to individuals close to the end of their life in certain nursing homes, as if numerous animals were more sensitive to the subtler forms of energy that may not be as easily detectible for humans. In additions, animals often live within the equilibrium of their environment, whereas humans have a tendency to do otherwise. For instance, for centuries animals have been culled when their numbers have become too great for humanity or nature to control, however mankind has continued to expand and more than overpopulate the planet, whilst disregarding the underlying truth of humanities destructive capabilities. Therefore, the electromagnetic reality of the dodo becoming extinct may appear innately different to humans than it would to the prey itself. Although animals possess a more instinctive nature, they are also more physically preoccupied with their own survival. The differences in environment should also be considered in the evolution of consciousness within the animal kingdom.

Imagination

The conscious mind is largely dependent upon the functioning of the physical brain, to an extend keeping the mind to a three-dimensional focus. It naturally orientates the individual toward the environment in which they must operate. However, it is due to the allegiance with the temporal brain that time is perceived as a series of moments. The brain channels the information that the mind receives to the individual physical structure. Henceforth, the mind is largely dependent upon the brains growth, activity and functional capability. More often than not, the individuals imagination will naturally follow their belief structure, as well as the emotions present. Often the idea itself is not buried within the realms of the unconscious, it is simply unexamined. However, beliefs are never truly static, they are in essence ever-changing, ever-evolving, as it may, from childhood to adulthood, as well as, from one life to the next. In consequence, emotions and imagination both follow the belief of the individual. Once the belief has been de-selected, the same emotional context is no longer entertained, thus the imagination would naturally turn to other directions. It should be noted that beliefs automatically mobilize emotional and imaginative powers. Although few beliefs may be intellectual ones on their own, yet once the contents of the conscious mind, one gradually begins to recognize the emotional and imaginative connotations that may be interconnected with a provided idea. In addition, belief and imagination also possesses the capability of producing any desired emotions, which is commonly applied in NLP techniques, such as anchoring or swishing. Existing within such diversified, rich environment-possibilities, the human psyche required and developed a conscious mind that was able to generate concise and accurate minute by minute judgements and evaluations. Henceforth, as the conscious mind began to expand, the range of imagination did also. Thus the conscious mind serves as a vehicle for imagination, often as a form of unconsciously creating reality, yet after all enriching conscious reasoning and emotional experience of the phenomenal world. Almost as a manner of creating reality, as one goes along. The conscious mind is meant to look into the exterior world and into the interior one, as a vehicle for the expression of the soul in corporeal terms, as it may. As beliefs naturally attract the appropriate emotions, they are further reinforced through imagination and visualization. Therefore, all of the powers of the inner self are set into activation as a result of conscious beliefs, leaving each human being with a responsibility for their thoughts, as combined with imagination they have unlimited potential power lingering within them, which actively is able to alter life as it is ultimately perceived.

Reincarnation and Karma

Throughout the physical incarnations, individuals are mainly concerned with the physical orientation and the corporeal materialization of the inner reality. As the mind in life is intimately connected to the brain and the physical organism, it is automatically attuned to the corporeal entity, it could even be stated that it to a certain extent disregards some non-physical data that lies within any given field of perception. In essence, it simply does not allow it into its organizing perceptions, hence the data is then blocked out. The root of this is often the belief-structures surrounding the ideas of ones own perception. Although it may not be always consciously realized, the conscious mind is in itself constantly in development and expansion. On an unconscious level, each individual organizes the atoms and molecules that compose the cells, which form the body, the blueprint however is formed by the belief-systems. In fact, there are chains of influence that are actually composed of inner values of sound that thread together as it were, the complicated inter-weavings of both genes and chromosomes. Literally, these sound values are interwoven in an electromagnetic pattern. Although the conscious mind will always attempt to make sense of out belief-structures, to form them into patterns and sequences, organizing them as rationally as possible, which may not always be probable. In addition, the concept of cause and effect is often misinterpreted within certain belief structures that are more or less based upon the notion of punishment. Therefore, the conception that an individual may be reborn into a particular life time in order to endure suffering for past crimes has become a quite commonly held belief, although it is in essence erroneous. Whilst it is accurate that the body is the living materialization of idea, it is also true that these ideas form an active, responsive body consciousness, not as separate from the spirit as originally thought. It should be noted that Seth also hints toward the fact that previous lives, occurring at the same time of future lives, are capable of influencing future development. Henceforth, the present moment possesses the capability of altering ones own ever-changing future self. Although the circumstances may not always be ideal, one still requires to accept ones own responsibility, whilst slowly moving closer towards a higher state of evolution at a soul level, altering patterns of behaviour as the existence of all that is progresses. Also, multiple existences are often simultaneous and open-ended within the multi-dimensional reality.

Aggression, War and Violence

For instance, guilt is on the other side of compassion. It original purpose was to enable the individual to empathize with themselves and other living beings within their environment. It had become the species manifestation of the animals unconscious corporeal sense of justice and integrity. Such as, a hunter only taking as many lives as required in order to provide physical sustenance. It has over the course of human history become evident that the natural equilibrium has been more than slightly tilted. In addition, an individual in a state of immense anger or fear will naturally divert from their usual course of action and perhaps become submerged in the intense state of emotion temporarily. As it is rather easy to be caught up within the sequences of events and subsequent surges of emotion, the notion that one has somewhat become a victim of external circumstances would not appear to be too far-fetched. Although each individual is essentially responsible for the perception and construction of their own reality matrix, one can become carried away within a continual loss of power, which is in turn then the causal factor in a destructive, aggressive or even violent behavioural expression. For instance, the common denominator in most criminal acts is the element of power that is experienced by the perpetrator, who often is perceived as being powerless and helpless within daily life. Within the act of defending oneself, however, there are a variety of physical actions that could be performed, which would not involve murder, that would suffice in rendering the perceived threat. Yet, as long as humanity continues to believe that violence must be encountered with violence, the mind and body themselves become a form of battle-ground. The further this belief would be reinforced by the mass consciousness, the more earth itself would become hostile territory. It should be noted that moments of reflection serve a preventative purpose in this matter. However, for instance, current issues of overpopulation are resultant in an increase of wars and crime. And if it is solved by aggressive forms of conflict, it is in frequency compensated for by disease. Nonetheless, love in essence is outgoing, as is aggression. One cannot inhibit one without similarly affecting the other, so under such conditions, the non-dual nature of reality is revealed.

Racial Tension

Since the natural communication of aggression has been broken down within society, humanity often confuses aggression with violence without understanding the creative potential of it or its purpose as a method of communication in order to prevent violence. In fact, a great effort is invested into the restraint of the communicative elements of aggression, whilst ignoring its many positive values until its power becomes so exponentially bottled up that it results in an explosion of violence. Henceforth, violence is a distortion of aggression. It should be noted that at times the process of deflection and the appearance of diversity does not always allow for these before mentioned elements to be channelled productively, often creating a profound dislike of certain qualities that are often also found within the self. For instance, whereas an individual is often culturally conditioned toward the dislike of another race of humanity due to the environmental surrounding of the individual, racial family feuds often fuel the warlike vendetta even further. A conscious belief focuses ones attention, channelling it and directing it so that the notions can be swiftly brought into the physical existence, however at times, these beliefs may not be as fruitful as previously expected. The hatred toward another human being due to the colour of their skin, the curvature of their nose or even their ancestry has become a daily occurrence within countless countries. For example, within the United States, since September 11, the racial tensions between the Caucasian and the Islamic individuals have caused them to distance themselves further apart. Certain individual have even expressed their concern of being seated next to an individual of Islamic or Arabic descent due to the War on Terror. It has become one retaliation after the next. Truth be told, no one actually remembers the reason, but then no one truly questions it either. Often the true motive comes into view, the fear of the populous and the greed of the few in charge. Yet, it should be noted that “white man” has created wars based upon appearance since the discovery of Africa. Mind you, Africa still is not in charge of their own diamond mines etc. Throughout history, the slavery and captivity of those different from us by appearance has been well documented. However, certain countries or regions upon the planet are more likely to be exposed to conditioned or environmental discriminative racial tendencies. Professionally, I am of the opinion that it supplies “white man” with a slight hint of arrogance, for instance, looking down upon the African American drug supplier down the road, whereas often they are subjected to the belief and criticism of others. An idea that can spread or be reversed within a moment. Aggression, prejudice and jealousy, like any other emotion, is similar to a drop of water hitting the ocean, the shock-wave, whether positive or negative creates a ripple effect,  thus affecting the external environment.

Purpose of Dreams

The general purpose of dreams is initially a therapeutic one, representing almost a bridge between the conscious and unconscious mind. Due to the illusive nature of dreams, one would be able to find oneself in any given scenario that may appeal to the current inner conflict that one may be facing. It should be noted that dreams and the physical events of an individuals life constantly alters the chemical balances within the body. A dream may be purposely experienced to provide an outlet of a kind that is missing within the routine of daily life. It will mobilize the resources available and fill the body with a rush of the necessitated hormones, constructing a dream state of stress that will provide the organisms healing abilities into combat, resulting in the end to a particular physical symptoms, for instance. However, another dream may provide a peaceful interlude, in which all stress is minimized, in consequence with the overactive output of certain hormones and chemicals quieted as a result. Initially, the nature of dreams allows the individual to move within the perimeters of the temporal space that they have created for themselves, yet a much lighter form of existence as it may. Any conscious thought or intention naturally influences the dream, and often more rapidly than within the phenomenal realm. The role-playing scenarios in the dream would be one in which, problems that are currently creating imbalances within the body, are creatively solved. Dreams of a strongly aggressive nature in this context may be profoundly beneficial to a given individual, allowing the release of usually inhibited feelings and freeing the body from tension. By such constant dream therapy, both mind and body regulate themselves to a large degree. It is true that in dreams, one may reach some of the deepest sources of your being at times, yet even there the expression of that being is far too individualistic to assign the same kind of unconscious meaning to overall symbols. In consequence, the meaning of each dream differs per individual due to the unique nature of the psyche, henceforth the assignment of fixed meaning to fixed content viewed during the dream time is not as effective, since the process of association is differs from one individual to the next. Henceforth, the meaning of dreams will at all times be a rather personal one that only the affected one would be able to decipher. In addition, the actual action occurs during the precession of the dream itself, on deep psychic and biological levels. The dream’s happening, in fact, affects the entire physical condition of the individual, therefore it has a constant therapeutic effect. Although the physical body has been conditioned to the application of medication since birth, once the imbalances of a physical nature have been removed by the introduction of drugs, the body will often signal that the inner dilemma has been resolved, when more often than not it has not. The whole organism is not at one with itself under such conditions, the inner mechanics are disturbed, as it may, whilst the basic challenge is not only not faced, yet constantly denied the physical expression and would naturally bring about its natural solution. However, the merging and similarities of the waking and dreaming state should also be taken into consideration.

Toward the Superconscious

5 Major Eras of Human Development

It should be noted that the major stages of evolution of human consciousness adheres to the twenty tenets, thus there exists an overall continuity toward evolution, from the physiosphere to the biosphere to the noosphere. One is able to outline predominant world views of the various epochs of human development. These stages may be summarized as archaic, magic, mythic, rational or existential that can be correlated with the major stages of technological and economic development, which are foraging, horticultural, agrarian, industrial and informational. For instance, within foraging societies, more commonly known as the hunting and gathering stage, the roles of men and women were sharply delineated and separated, in which the male performed the hunting and the women conducted the gathering and child raising. It is approximated that 97% of foraging societies followed that rigid pattern. There was a particular emphasis placed on either the male or female value sphere. Foraging societies originally emerged between a million and four thousand years ago. Certain tribal cultures at the time lived an ecologically sound life whereas others did not, which was resultant in the extinction of numerous species. Modern day lineage in any country can be traced back to their tribal ancestors, which could only be established through the beginning or agriculture to prevent the extinction of countless animal species, allowing the tribes to transcend to a new way of living as well as being, as it may. In consequence, there was a shift in status within the family unit during the horticultural epoch. 80% of the nutrition would be produced by women as the men still continued to hunt. These societies provided an equal status to men and women. Interestingly, the lineage of those tribal societies is more often than not traced through the mother. One third of these societies had female only deities, particularly the “Great Mother” in her various forms. Most of these locations possessed a horticultural background, which began around 10’000 BCE in the East and West. In the Agrarian stage, a profound shift in culture began with the introduction of the plow. Subsequently, these societies had the most highly sexually polarized structures of any known societal type. Not due to the interference of a particular gender, but the most effective form of organisation that could be applied at the time. When men began to be the sole provider of food, the deity figures in these cultures switched from female-orientated to to mainly male orientated. Over 90% of agrarian societies had primarily male deities. With the industrialisation, the first and foremost technological means were developed in order for humans to rely upon the power of machines rather than their own strength. It removed emphasis upon male strength, replacing it with gender neutral engines, allowing for the women’s movement to emerge. Gender roles no longer determined the roles within society. Although the primary cause for ecological devastation still remains. Ignorance. Whereas tribal ignorance is merely capable of inflicting limited damage, industrial ignorance can wipe our an entire quadrant of space or more. Modernity and Post-modernity become two sides of the same coin, continually striving for further technological advancement regardless of the cost. However, in order to understand post-modernity, one has to understand the fundamental Enlightenment paradigm, which is represented by the notion that you have the self or the subject on one side and the empirical sensory world on the other and the valid knowledge consists in the construction of maps of the empirical world. If both correspond with one another, the result is then viewed as truth.

The Big Three

Within the book History of Everything, Wilber describes the basic divisions of the four quadrants. Everything on the Right Hand can is described in “It” language. All on the Upper Left is described in “I” language, whereas everything on the Lower Left is defined as “We”. In sum, the “It” language is objective, neutral, encompassing mostly value-free surfaces. It is the standard for the empirical, analytical approach. In other terms, it is monological, describing objective exteriors and their interrelations, such as observable surfaces and patterns that can be viewed with the senses or their instrumental extensions. Here, information is defined as negative entropy, in which presence or consciousness is not required. However, the “I” language represents the presence of the individual or subjective awareness. All that is on the Upper left is basically described within the “I” language of interior subjectivity. For example, the subjective component of any holon is the I-component. This self becomes greater with increased depth, yet this component cannot under any circumstances be described within it “it” language, which would convert the subject into a mere object, which has led to countless dehumanizing results throughout history, especially considering consciousness control experiments with children below the age of five. Whether these objects are singular or whether they are collective strands within the web, history has educated humanity that reductionism can result in dreadful catastrophe. Subsequently, the third language, is the Lower Left, the cultural and intersubjective dimension. It is represented by the collective world view that is associated with a particular time, location and culture inhabit. These perspectives naturally evolve, thus archaic, magic, mythic and ration standspoints can be discovered here. In conclusion, at the very minimum, mankind has these three fundamental languages, which differ from one another, addressing the various domains. The failure to differentiate these languages has caused a profound amount of confusion. Thus, Wilbers concept of the Big Three is a simplified version of the four quadrants, since both Right Hand quadrants are objective exteriors or “its”. Consequently, for the sake of simplicity, the four quadrants can be dealt with as the Big Three.

In reference to the fundamental Enlightenment paradigm that reduces all “I” and “we” to its, which reduced the three languages to merely one, as a form of subtle reductionism. In essence, it reduced all of the Left Hand dimensions to their Right Hand correlates. In conclusion, according to theorists from Weber to Habermas, modernity entirely differentiated between the Big Three for the first time in history. Various domains such as morals, science, self, culture and nature were no longer syncretically fused. Yet in order to achieve integration, one should seek solutions by regressing to mythic or magic indissociation of the Big Three, where self, culture and nature were not yet differentiated. Hence, one will discover manners in which to integrate mind, culture and nature in the postmodern world. Within the spiritual themes, the notions of Buddha (spiritual realizer), Dharma (Realized truth) and Sangha (Communal realisation) begin to surface as consciousness evolution continues into the higher domains of existence.

Difference Between Stages and States of Consciousness

Wilber refers describes the basic structures of consciousness in nine variant stages, including sensation and perception (sensoriphysical), impulse and image (phantasmic-emotional), symbols and concepts (representational mind), concrete rules (rule/roles of mind), formal-reflexive, and vision-logic (integrative), following the transpersonal stages of psychic, subtle and causal. However, the highest stage of all is non-duality, although it could be argued that it is not a stage at all, yet in practice it truly becomes a stage of consciousness. With each stage of development, the individual develops a reformed view of the world. The world is transformed and can be rediscovered anew. However, the stages and states are clearly interlinked, each individual, due to the nature of the psyche, will experience them differently. As stages of development are rather similar to states of being, they are often illustrated similarly, yet their essence can differ when one examines the pathology of the individual. For instance, if dissociation is severe at certain stages of development, the processes of self-development can come to a halt. As Wilber describes it “More often than not, the self will simply limp along down the road, dissociation and all. It will continue to develop, it will continue to climb the basic structures in expanding awareness, however haltingly or however wounded. It may bleed all over the place, but it keep climbing.” This elaborates upon how an individual can be stuck at a certain stage of development, whilst continuing to expand their state of being. Yet, since the individual is literally bound at that stage, there is limited room for expansion, which in severe cases can be increasingly visible the more time progresses. Nonetheless, it is also rather simple to mistake a state of being for a stage of development or vice versa, especially if the individual is at a dubious age. For instance, if a childhood sociopath slips through the cracks of the system until teenage years, it is more often than not impossible to diagnose them as such through the means of psychoanalysis due to the similarities in behaviour during that stage of development. However, sociopathy is in essence, a state of being, a view of the world that can expand according to stage of development, yet the state of being can persist and even hinder them from attaining higher stages of development. It should be noted though that a recent study has shown that sociopathic tendencies were and are increasingly common within Zen Buddhism. Yet, Jung noted that there is a distinction between emotional detachment or non-attachment in comparison to raw sociopathic tendencies. As a side-note, sociopathic inclinations can be curved by attending to the state of being as well as stage of development simultaneously, hence there is a profound importance in distinguishing between the two conceptions.

Psychology of the Ego

There is a distinction between the true self and the false self or persona. Within the psychological stages of development, the ego forms a centre of gravity, as it may. It represents the drives, the likes, the dislikes and the desires of the individual. As the ego often functions based upon past experiences and learnt behaviour, it may hinder the individual from progressing throughout the stages of development, however it should not be viewed as a negative component of consciousness. Nonetheless, it should be noted that evolution could be viewed as a general decline of egocentrism, which expresses a general decrease of involvement of the ego within spiritual development. The ego provides a form of anchor for the self during the lifespan of the individual, at times it can even become the centre of the self. It is the preconceived identity that has been incorporated into the self on a conscious level. However, the ego is not a static component, it can mature during stages of development and can take on various roles until reaching a point of transcendence whilst the individual progresses through the stages of spiritual development. The ego within psychological development, for instance, can take on the role of satisfying certain desires or all desires no matter the cost. Yet, there is another side to that coin, which mostly occurs during the early childhood. In the words of Howard Gardner “The young child is totally egocentric, meaning not that he is incapable of thinking about himself. The egocentric child is unable to differentiate himself from the rest of the world. He has not yet separated himself from others or objects. Thus he feels that others share his pain or pleasure, that his mumblings will inevitably be understood, that his perspective is shared by all, that even animals and plants partake his consciousness.” Hence Gardner felt, there was a general decline in egocentrism during human development. Throughout the stages of spiritual development, the individual returns to a somewhat modified viewpoint of almost exactly the same conception. Nonetheless, as the child matures, it no longer treats the environment as an extension of itself. The world and the child have become differentiated, although the emotional self and the emotional world have not yet become distinctly separate. With the conceptual self, the self has become a conceptual ego that cannot yet take the role of another. Although once it can, it will. As Wilber describes it, the shift between a sociocentric to a worldcentric perspective becomes a transcendence of the shallower and a disclosure of the deeper. It becomes a battle between enlightenment and the ego, as it may.

Four Quadrants of Space

Wilber states that a part of the coming transformation will involve an alteration in consciousness and a change in institutions. Consequently, it would involve the incorporation of a new worldview, encompoassing a technological, economical base with the emergence of a new sense of self including behavioural patterns. Whether it is realised or not, the phenomenal world consists of a wide variety of holachical maps that consist of the same territory. By comparing and contrasting the differences and similarities, Wilber intended to discover the single and basic holarchy that all of them were attempting to represent. Yet, the more he was attempting this, Wilber discovered that these various holarchies possessed undeniable similarities, yet also profound differences, however the exact nature of these differences did not seem apparent at all. Eventually, he concluded that they were actually four different types of holarchies, thus four different types of holistic sequences. He began to refer to these as the four quadrants. He then arrived at the conclusion that these types of holarchies have a rather simple foundation. These four types of holarchies are in actually concerned with the inside and outside of a holon, in both its individual and collective forms. Inside, outside, singular and plural are one of the simplest number of distinctions that can be made. Consequently, these very basic features, which are present in all holons provide us with the four quadrants. All four of these types are dealing with aspects of holons, which keep aggressively and insistently showing up on the various maps around the globe. If one begins to observe the individual holon, in both its interior and exterior, which is represented by the Upper Left quadrant and the Upper Right quadrant, each level trancends and includes its predecessor. Each level includes the basics of the previous level and then adds its own distinction and defining characteristics and its own emergents. It should be noted that each of these follow the twenty tenets. The exterior aims to concern itself with appearance of the cell, atom or organism, including its evolution, whereas the interior concerns itself with internal, emotional aspects. It refers to the interior depth, which is consciousness itself. For instance, certain basic kinds of interior awareness go hand in hand with various exterior forms., such as irritability, which is the capacity to actively respond to environmental stimuli originates with cells. Sensations emerge with neuronal organisms. Perceptions begin to develop with a neural cord. Impulses, however, originate with a brain stem and basic emotions with a limbic system. This is clearly also a subjective holarchy.

Individual holons exist only in communities of similar-depth holons, Wilber refers to these as communal holons that are always associated with individual holons. This communal aspect also possesses an interior and exterior, which is referred to as the Lower Left and Lower Right. The cultural, refers to all the interior meanings, values and identities, whereas social refers to all of the exterior, material, institutional forms of the community. In a general sense, cultural refers to the shared collective worldview and social refers to the material base of that worldview. For instance, “if consciousness is depth and depth goes all the way down, then shared depth or common depth goes all the way down, hence culture goes all the way down.” In other terms, if holons share outsides, they also share insides, their culture, as it may. For example, the study of what holons can respond to is essentially the study of shared world spaces. For example, within a pack of wolves, as they possess a limbic system, the interior correlate of which is certain basic emotion. Thus, a wolf orientates itself and its fellow wolves to the world through the use of basic emotional cognitions through a sophisticated emotional signal system. Yet, anything outside that world-space is not registered. Consequently, the transformation that Wilber refers to is that of consciousness.

 Left Hand Approach Versus Right Hand Approach

From the beginning of each quest for knowledge, the various approaches toward its discovery have fallen into one or another of these two categories. Interior or exterior, which is basically a Left-handed versus Right-handed approach. All that is categorized as being on the Right hand is objects or exteriors that can be seen empirically with the senses or their extensions. They are all surfaces that can be seen. They all possess locations. It could be termed as a monological approach, as the interior irrelevant to this specific approach. It not necessary to communicate with the subject or object. One is basically reduced to an object of observation. Naturally, this scientific approach is not erroneous, but it is merely one side of the spectrum. The Left hand, however, is not observed in such a simple manner, as it is largely an interior dimension without physical locations. One therefore attempts to get closer towards the consciousness. In essence, there is no other means to reach the interior except by interpretation. This approach requires communication and expression in order to become comprehensible. Henceforth, a rather distinct difference between both approaches is that surfaces can be observed whereas depth must be interpreted. Furthermore, psychoanalysis is basically an interpretive or Left Hand approach, whilst classical behaviourism would be classified as Right Hand or empirical approach. For instance, dreams are interior events that are composed of symbols, which can only be analysed by interpretation. Freud’s notion of the talking cure on the other hand would be described as being dialogical, not monological. In conclusion, all therapies that are based upon communication are fundamentally based upon a single principle, the attempt to discover a more adequate interpretation for ones own interior depth. The Upper Right quadrant approaches, such as behaviourism or biological psychiatry at their extreme do not wish to associate themselves with interpretation, depth, interiors and intentions, their interest solely concerns itself with the observable, empirical and exterior behaviour. There is no attempt to reveal the meaning of the symptoms. The correction of the chemical imbalance of serotonin, for instance, may restore the physical balance of the body it would not relieve depression that has been interiorly caused until adequate interpretation of those regions of consciousness has been conducted.

Ascending and Descending

There are a wide variety of interpretations in regards to spiritual transformation and spiritual illumination. The experience itself would be direct and immediate. However, eventually, the individual will return to an ordinary state of consciousness, which is when the individual will begin to interpret the experience and its depth. Consequently, how this experience is interpreted will govern how the individual approaches others with this illumination, especially how the experience eventually affects the self. For instance, whether this experience was transmental or transpersonal, the individual would eventually orientate themselves according to the experience. The individual is not merely composed of spiritual components, there are also physical, psychological and emotional components and so forth, hence if the individual cannot integrate it with the rest of the consciousness, as it cannot be adequately interpreted, the experience contains no meaning, as it contains no comprehension. It should be noted that one of the basic rules of interpretation is that all meaning is context based, therefore any attempt to interpret the experience, the individual has to ensure that the context against which the individual interprets the experience is as full and complete as possible. Ideally, an all quadrant interpretation from the context of the cosmos in all dimensions would be preferable, however countless individual analyse these experiences based on the realities of simply one quadrant, which often results in the loss of the fullness of the experience.

Numerous individuals interpret these spiritual experiences basically in terms of the higher self or higher consciousness, incl. Archetypal forms or enneagram pattern and so forth, whereas they are more often than not oblivious to social and cultural aspects of the experience, becoming a “self-only” interpretation that does not adhere to the more materialistic quadrants within existence. Others prefer to interpret mostly in terms of the Lower Right quadrant. The ultimate reality becomes the empirical web of life, Gaia or the biosphere, in which all holons are reduced to being merely a strand in a web. These approaches neglect the interior states of consciousness development, reducing all Left Hand components to Right Hand strands within the empirical web. Nonetheless, all of these one quadrant viewpoints contain a moment of truth, which is that fragmented interpretations tend to abort the spiritual process itself. One may only arrive at an adequate interpretation of enlightenment, if one were to include all four quadrants. Wilber states that the intention would be to find oneself in sympathetic attunement with all aspects of the Kosmos in order to discover the truth in all four quadrants and gain a deeper perspective within the layers of existence.

During the higher or transpersonal stages, the spirit that was present throughout the entire evolutionary process becomes increasingly conscious of its own condition. It was originally subconscious, but became self-conscious and then superconscious, unfolding more of itself and enfolding more of itself at every stage. This is the path of conscious ascension. The path of enlightenment. The path of becoming… A path that does not necessarily concerns itself with this particular realm of existence, primarily it consists of compassion, kindness and understanding. Hence, a descending path represents the exact opposite, a path that mainly focuses its energies upon the physical world that it perceives. For instance, the ascending movement, is a motion from the many to one, a movement in which all forms of manifestations lead back to a single source. A groundless ground, the absolute, through the ascending path, one therefore rises to the comprehension of this. In consequence, it should be noted that Lovejoy concluded that both of these currents, ascending and descending, were united and integrated in the concepts of Plato. However, on the descended grid, salvation in the modern world is represented in the form of pure immanence. There exists no higher truth, no ascending current, nothing transcendental at all, in fact. All which is higher or transpersonal has become evil incarnate, as it opposes the descended grid and fuels the dominance of the descenders. At the beginning of the book, Wilber stated “Whereas ascenders had dominated the scene up to the Renaissance, all it requires was decisive shift in consciousness to unleash the Descending path, which burst forth from its thousand year confinement, exploded on the scene with a creative fury that would remake the entire Western world and in the process permanently substitute one broken God for another.” Conclusively, the descending path is marked by conventional, ecological ideals that pertain to the structure of the modern world, whilst it is a prime contributor to the current ecological crisis. Although evolution itself is a self-correcting agenda, it requires time to operate accordingly.

In conclusion, the difference between both paths appears clear. They are opposite directions. Ultimately, the path determines the view of the phenomenal world partially. Although the mass commonly decides the path of overall consciousness, each individual is provided with the freedom to select their own path. It may be more convenient to remain on the descending path, as the downfall is imminent within the conception, it becomes a self-fulling prophecy. Nonetheless, the individual within such a viewpoint will be confronted with unconscious aspects that they may not be prepared to face, as it differentiates from their conscious belief structures. Nonetheless, each individual will eventually have to select their path within society, as one cannot tread both paths simultaneously without severe contradictions within the personality.

Prior to Time

Wilber explains that the Seer or the Witness is prior to birth, prior to the body, prior even to the Big Bang. It never enters the stream of time. However there is a paradox here. “Prior to” actually means existing first and is therefore a temporal concept! How can this ultimate consciousness be “prior to”, “first”, “unending” etc. when those concepts can only have meaning with relation to time? The concept of the self exists within time and space. It is confined by and thus obeys by its laws and conventions. Yet, the spirit itself in non-linear in nature. It remains outside of the temporal space, as it may. However, Ken Wilbers concept gives rise to a rather significant point within human development. That which is prior the present self and that which is prior to the individual consciousness differs at the core. The source is often referred to as being outside of time itself, thus it would also be of non-local origin. Within Buddhism, the development of the seer, the inner witness becomes imminent in order to attain spiritual enlightenment or Buddhahood. This inner witness is basically a persona within the self that does not identify with present circumstances. It merely observes that which occurs in the present moment. Its response is more often than not one of curiosity. Whereas, another part of the mind may be judging or categorizing the experience, the witness perceives everything from the premise of allowing and trust in an ordered universe. It is represented by an open mental stance, not closed or contracted. In Buddhism, developing the inner observer becomes a foundational element of their teachings. Besides providing support, the observer aid in the management of stress and anger more effectively. Within a reactive state of mind, the body secrets chemicals that cause inflammation, the major cause of degenerative diseases and ageing. By using the witness/observer with its innocence, openness and trust, we can sail through adversity in a healthier way. However, it should be noted that Buddhists, Yogis and Sages spend years meditating upon that very aspect in order for it to emerge more clearly within their mindful practices, which encourage conscious living on a daily basis. Nonetheless, one of the notable differences between Hinduism and Buddhism is that Hinduism holds faith in the existence of the eternal and indestructible soul or Atman, whereas Buddhism does not believe in the concept of the soul or Atman. Most of the speculative philosophies and darshnas or various schools of philosophical thought in Hinduism attempt to answer enquiries, regarding the existence of consciousness and its development. Yet there is no unanimous opinion among them as to the nature of the soul and its relationship with the Absolute. The individual souls are stated to be different from the Absolute. However, this is not an universal standpoint. According to certain traditions, the Absolute does not exist but only individual souls, thus consisting of the Absolute as whole. Among those who believe in the existence of the Absolute, certain individuals believe that the Absolute and the individual souls are the same while others believe them to be different. Furthermore, certain traditions hold that although the Absolute and an individual soul are the same, they do have some subtle dissimilarities which cause them to be distinct. One could conclude that these perceptions are the same from one perspective and different from another. From a rather scientific standpoint, David Bohm perceived that the view of quantum theory and relativity contradicted one another. Conclusively, to him this contradiction implied that there existed a more fundamental level in the physical universe. He claimed that both quantum theory and relativity pointed towards this deeper theory, which he formulated in terms of a quantum field theory. This more fundamental level was proposed to represent an undivided wholeness and an implicate order, from which arises the explicate order of the universe as we experience it. Bohm’s proposed implicate order applies both to matter and consciousness. In addition, he suggested that it could explain the relationship between them. Mind and matter are here seen as projections into the explicate order from the underlying reality of the implicate order. In his attempts to describe the nature of consciousness, Bohm discussed the experience of listening to music. He concluded that the feeling of movement and change that makes up the experience of music derives from both the immediate past and the present both being held in the brain together, with the notes from the past seen as transformations rather than memories. The notes that were implicate in the immediate past are seen as becoming explicate in the present. Bohm viewed this as consciousness emerging from the implicate order. Bohm viewed the movement, change or flow and also the coherence of experiences, such as listening to music as a manifestation of the implicate order. He stated that he derived evidence for this from the work of Jean Piaget in studying infants. He explained that these studies show, young children have to learn about time and space, as they are part of the explicate order, but have a hard-wired understanding of movement, since it is part of the implicate order. He compared this hypothesis of hard-wiring to Chomsky’s theory that grammar is hard-wired into young human brains. Newton’s laws of motion and Maxwell’s equations for electromagnetism adequately explain ones everyday, large scale classical world. However, at small scales in the quantum realm (and the boundary between the quantum and classical realms remains mysterious) objects may exist in two or more states or places simultaneously, more like waves than particles and governed by the quantum wave function. This property of multiple coexisting possibilities, known as quantum superposition, persists until the superposition is measured, observed or interacts with the classical world or environment. Only then does the superposition of multiple possibilities reduce, collapse, choose or decohere to specific, particular classical states. Conversely, quantum superpositions and reduction are used technologically in quantum computing. Whereas conventional classical computers represent digital information as bits of either 1 or 0, within quantum computers, quantum information may be represented as quantum superpositions of both 1 and 0. While in superposition, “quantum bits”, as it may, interact with others via the means of nonlocal quantum entanglement, allowing computational interactions of enormous speed and near-infinite parallelism. After the computation is performed the quantum bits are reduced, such as by environmental interaction/decoherence to specific classical bit states which constitute the solution. Quantum computing may be essential for certain tasks, yet what does it mean for an object to exist in multiple places or states simultaneously? The puzzle of quantum superposition baffled science, moreover the fate of isolated superpositions remains unresolved. One solution was put forth by Hugh Everett in his multiple worlds view. Everett’s idea was that superposition is a separation in underlying reality, that the universe at it’s fundamental level splits, or separates, and that each possibility branches off to form a new universe, a new reality. Thus, according to this view, there exist an infinite number of parallel universes corresponding to the infinite number of superposition possibilities which have ever existed. Assuming for a moment that the multiple worlds view is correct. How do we envision the separation of the universe or the individual? How do we envision the structure of reality? At rather small scales, space is not smooth, but quantized. Imagine viewing the ocean from an air-plane. The ocean surface may look perfectly smooth. However if you were in a small boat on the ocean surface you’d be tossed about by the roughness of the sea invisible from high above. Similarly as we go down in scale from the size of atoms (10-8 centimetres) empty space seems smooth until eventually scientists discover granularity at the “Planck scale (10-33 centimetres, 10-43 seconds). There are several types of descriptions of the Planck scale, such as string theory, quantum foam, and loop quantum gravity. In the context of loop quantum gravity, Penrose portrayed the Planck scale as a dynamical spider-web of spin. Taking spin as an irreducible, fundamental entity, spin networks define spectra of discrete Planck scale volumes and configurations which dynamically evolve and define space-time geometry. The amount of potential information in Planck scale spin networks is vast; each Planck scale volume, or pixel of reality may be shaped by huge variability and non-local interactions. In addition, it should be noted that their sheer number is enormous, there are roughly 10107 Planck volumes in the volume of a human brain, far greater than the number of particles in the universe. As previously mentioned, Everett’s multiple worlds view describes separations in underlying reality. For simplicity and illustration one can condense the 4-dimensional space-time with a basement level of Planck scale spin networks into 2-dimensional space-time, consisting of one spatial dimension and one time dimension. This space-time is slightly curved, in accordance with Einstein’s general theory of relativity, in a way which encodes the gravitational fields of all distributions of mass density. Each mass density, each object or particle effects a space-time curvature, albeit tiny for small objects. Consequently we can view any mass in one location as space-time curvature in a particular direction, and location of the mass in a different location as space-time curvature in another direction. Therefore quantum superposition of a particle in two locations may be considered simultaneous curvatures in opposite directions. As in the multiple worlds view, the space-time separates into two opposing curvatures, resulting in a bubble within the underlying reality. In Penrose’s view superpositions, or space-time separations, bubbles are unstable. Ultimately, they will eventually reduce or collapse to one particular curvature or the other. The instability is inherent in the properties of space-time geometry and quantum gravity, constituting an objective threshold for an isolated quantum state reduction, hence objective reduction. In the Penrose formulation, objective reduction due to the quantum gravity properties of fundamental space-time geometry occurs at a time “T” given by the Heisenberg indeterminacy principle E=h/T, in which E is the magnitude of superposition/separation, h is Planck’s constant over 2π, and T is the time until reduction. The magnitude E is related to the gravitational self-energy of the superposition and may be calculated from the amount of mass “separated from itself” and distance of separation. Since E is inversely related to T, small separations/superpositions (if isolated) will reduce at a long time T, and large separations/superpositions (if isolated) will reduce quickly. For example an isolated superpositioned electron would reduce by or only after 10 million years. A large isolated superpositioned object such as Schrödinger’s mythical one kilogram cat would reduce by or after only 10-37 seconds. The point is that Penrose objective reductions are self-organizing events occurring at the level of as well as in the medium of fundamental space-time geometry in which proto-conscious qualia may be embedded. Accordingly Penrose or events could qualify for occasions in a “wider field of proto-conscious experience”. Thus Penrose or events are potentially equivalent to Whitehead “occasions of experience”, Leibniz configurations and in some ways to Barbour’s “Nows”. Nonetheless, events require fairly stringent conditions, such as superpositions and space-time separations must be large enough to reach threshold in a brief enough time period, yet able to be isolated or protected from disruption by environmental decoherence. In quantum computers the superpositioned quantum bits are likely to be electrons of extremely low mass and hence incapable of reaching or threshold in a reasonably short time. Instead, the superposition is interrupted by decoherence when the computation is complete. Thus the threshold is never reached and quantum computers as presently envisioned will not be conscious by this criterion. On the other hand probable events may occur cosmologically due to very large scale superpositions, e.g. in neutron stars, or the early universe. Presumably, these probable events, which would occur at very fast time scales, would lack any organized information and while they may be very briefly conscious would have no cognition, intelligence or memory, which in essence is rather similar to the concept of limited consciousness. Pieces of information that are maintained within the regions of the unconscious, whilst the conscious mind remains aware of only very few bits and pieces. According to Penrose, outcomes selected in probable events are chosen neither randomly nor logarithmically, but non-computably, i.e. influenced by “Platonic values” embedded in Planck scale geometry. As probable selections are non-computable, or non-algorithmic, they are irreversible from the standpoint of classical information. Thus each probable event ratchets forward classical information in space-time, effectively creating conscious perception of a forward flow of time. A sequence of probable events or conscious moments occurring in the brain could therefore give rise to the familiar stream of consciousness. As the previous metaphor of time and space is gradually concluded, the nature of consciousness is unravelled and the concept of time appears less elusive than previously conceived. Yet it is also a widely believed fact that one can experience all of time occurring at once, from a perspective that is outside of space-time itself. A timeless space, as it may. Fred Alan Wolf describes this as a subtle, transpersonal domain that does not adhere to space-time in the manner that this plane of existence does. In accordance with Wilbers viewpoint, the individual consciousness may be bound by memories of life after life after life, once one reaches the deepest layers of the self, one shall discover that which is beyond all. Beyond temporal or spacial confinements. Beyond priority. Beyond fabrics of the phenomenal world. To that which is beyond perception. That which even is beyond existence itself.

Mind Over Matter

Placebo Effect

Each function of the human body is susceptible to thoughts and feelings, in a way it is hardwired to experience every emotion. In consequence it was discovered that the suppression of negative emotion influences diseases harboured within the physical body to the degree of aiding its progression. The placebo effect describes the procedure of a patient receiving that which they believe to be actual medicine that results in the same physiological outcome, conclusively it is evidenced that the patients belief in itself was capable of neutralizing the bodily condition. In addition, the mind affecting biology and biology affecting the mind is a commonly experienced fact within daily life. For instance, in a study performed by the Institute of Heartmath, scientists unravelled that positive and negative thinking patterns impact upon the immune system. The amount of salivary immunoglobulin A (s-IgA) was monitored in each individual, assessing the influence of the thought “Anger and Frustration” in comparison to “Care and Compassion”. It should be noted that a large amount of salivary immunoglobulin A indicates a strong immune system, whilst a low amount indicated a weak one. The outcome clearly showed that thoughts involving “Care and Compassion” produced a more resilient immune system, which remained elevated for at least five hours afterwards, whereas thoughts of “Anger and Frustration” generally lowered the overall immune system for five hours. Another study observing the effects of Transcendental Mediation discovered that practitioners for over five years appeared to be physiologically younger than their chronological age. Hence due to a further study into Zen meditators, it was affirmed that the brain does not require to decline with age, if it is in receipt of the appropriate treatment in order to trigger neuroprotective effects. Also, it was evident that Zen meditators develop an increased thickness of the prefrontal cortex in areas associated with attention. Therefore, the body can be influenced rather strongly by the mind, even age may not necessarily have to apply. A way of thinking and feeling, which allows for the individuals body to heal or preserve the youthfulness of the faculties, as it may. Nonetheless, for the actual placebo effect to occur, three main factors are necessary. The individual must have a substancial desire to be healed, they must expect to be healed or at least hold a form of positive expectation, and naturally the belief that they will be healed due to the medicine or competency of the medical staff. Technically, the patient enters a non-ordinary state of consciousness, most of the time this does not occur on a conscious level. Primarily, the principle of mind over matter proven by hundreds of studies performed applies greatly with the placebo effect, yet it is also a known factor that the behaviour and attitude of the medical personnel has the capability of reducing the outcome, if the placebo is administered poorly.

Psychosocial Genomics

Originally psychosocial genomics was constructed as a new area of DNA research, as a mixture of psychology and genomics. In essence, it is the study, which evidences that DNA affects the manner, in which an individual thinks and feels. As 99.9 genes are the same for each individual, the differences lie in the tiniest of variations in single genes. Consequently, the same set of genes is able to produce an infinite variety of species. As a result, it has been scientifically proven that height is inherited by approx. 80 percent, whilst 20 percent are environmentally based. Subsequently, certain genes are more active than their counterparts, since repetitive action causes repetitive gene expression, for instance, in daydreaming or flashbacks, which in itself is an unintentional form of visualization that inspires the DNA.

A study, involving the nature of maternal touch, revealed that love promotes physical growth by allowing for ornithine decarboxylase to be activated and growth hormones to be released. It has even been evidenced that fear suppresses growth and consequently results in the child struggle to socially fit it to the environment. Through the power of visualization, an individual begins to influence the desired circumstances through continual programming with a strong intention in mind. For example, one can biologically affect the healing process of a condition, such as cancer, liver failure, tuberculosis etc. Eastern practices, such as qigong, acupressure, acupuncture or tai chi, have also amply demonstrated a similarly beneficial effect upon mind and body, including regular meditation. Initially, it reduced the risk of the worsening of the condition, yet it also serves the purpose of reuniting mind and body to its natural equilibrium by adjusting the flow of energy through the physical body, whilst strengthening the existent natural defences. These mental techniques, however, also serve another purpose, once one attains the realization of mind over matter by actual experience, as through healing the self, one becomes capable of taking full responsibility for ones own body and health. The actualisation that the human body possesses the capacity to entirely mend itself, as and when required, if enough willpower, intention and belief is focused upon the objective.

All is energy, thus all has a frequency. Lower or higher frequencies naturally affect individuals differently. Each word possesses a different frequency, also dependent upon the manner in which it is vocalized. As a consequence, studies in regards to the effects of sound, such as shamanic drumming or meditation music revealed a slower heart rate and a deeper state of sleep and relaxation. In consequence, thoughts and feelings contain a level of frequency, which initially is released into the world, causing a slight ripple effect. For instance, in India, it is common knowledge that the condition of the meat of an animal is in correspondence with its manner of dying. Sequentially, an inhumane environment, including brutality and a painful death, an energetic imprint of fear is thought to remain on the meat, which would then be transferred to the individual ingesting it. In addition, it has been discovered that the practice of mindfulness or even a small prayer of grace affects the atomic structure of water, for instance. Overall, distance does not influence the act of intention, long distance healing or prayer, in fact, a study around the year 1998 resulted in the successful curbing or slowing of AIDS in twenty patients. However, it should be noted that certain healing practitioners absorb their clients energies, including their feelings, thoughts, emotions and psychological problems, which causes them to require psychic protection during any healing session. Often a golden shield or egg is visualized, dependent upon the preference of the practitioner. Truth be told, all thoughts and emotions consciously or unconsciously radiate out into the phenomenal world, affecting other accordingly. Due to this reason, it is recommended for spiritual, ascended masters are accustomed to meditating either late at night or close to sunrise, in between the hours of 11PM and 4AM, since there appears to be less emotional or mental interference in close proximity. In 1983, Randolph Byrd MD conducted a scientific study regarding the direct medical influence of prayer, it was discovered that the individuals that were in receipt of the prayer required fewer antibiotics, diuretics and less ventilator assistance, including a more rapid recovery rate than those patients, which had not been prayed for. In practicality, everything is interconnected through a field of energy, also known the quantum field or field of conscious intelligence. Similarly, the collective unconscious is the entirety of information or intelligence of all within existence, with each thought or idea the web of reality is altered, limited only by the speed of connection whilst it rises up through the unconscious contents to the conscious awareness. Since each thought streams a pulse of electrical energy throughout the brain along the neurons that interlink the nerve cells. Each nerve cell then responds to the thought by exerting a certain set of chemicals, whilst the thought could literally be felt anywhere and everywhere, although it may not be consciously recognized just yet.

A paper published around the year of 1981 described an experiment involving several hundred experienced meditators that gathered in a city in order to perform Transcendental Meditation, as a result, the federal statistics gathered over the following year

Mysticism and New Physics

Heisenberg postulated that the observer alters the observed by the mere act of observation, he implied that due to the increasing smallness of the atomic or subatomic system, no observations can be formulated without seriously affecting the outcome itself, consequently quantum physics arrived at the technical difficulty in measuring atomic systems. Later discoveries allowed for the hypothesis that the mind is able to effectively affect matter. Increasing amounts of indeterminism resulted in the true unpredictability of matter, regardless of the accumulation of information. This indeterminism of the quantum mechanical universe demolishes most misconceptions regarding the connectedness of events. As quantum theory proposes that systems and events can only be described statistically, the increasing amount of probabilities however almost reach to an indefinite number. Once one involves time into the equation, the outcome becomes naturally relative. Schroedingers equation eventually aided the development of the process, as it did not describe the individual atomic events, but rather unveil the infinite number of possible behaviours at one and the same time. The conventional interpretation accepted by most quantum physicists to explain the schizophrenia of the equation is known as the Copenhagen collapse, according to this view, when the equation divides into two, one of the vectors in configuration space simply collapses, however it also argues that quantum theory is strictly indeterministic. The physicist Jack Sarfatti once stated that “Implications of Metaphysics for psycho-energetic systems, an idea of the utmost significance, is that the structure or matter may not be independent of consciousness.” This insight naturally leads down a forked path, nothing is either or, it seems. He further continues to explain that “The participator in a particular quantum experiment in a physics laboratory can be the experimenter himself, though on the deeper level of quantum interconnectedness it must also include the general range of all living systems. All conscious systems, independently of their spatio-temporal locations relative to the experimental apparatus, make incoherent contributions to the total non-local quantum potential felt by the individual photons and electrons.” Therefore, I professionally am of the opinion that the act of the observer, although perhaps not consciously, may still alter the outcome, due to the factors of expectation, personal abilities or personal beliefs.

A Holographic Model of Consciousness

The property of being holographic is contained in the quality that each part encompasses the whole, even when separated. In consequence, according to Heisenberg, the observer alters the observed and the thinker alters the thought, which does not allow much measurement. An electric polarization exists across the membrane that separates the interior nerves of the brains neural web from the surrounding medium. The membrane possesses the ability to decrease polarization by alter its permeability to certain ions, therefore when a nervous impulse is initiated, the polarization traverses along the membrane of a nerve cell until it reaches a point of junction between adjacent neurons or a synapse. In certain circumstances the transmission across the synaptic cleft channels out another simultaneously arriving impulse, in others, the transmission creates another impulse to fire the neurons. Yet, that which is currently unclear appears to be that which is involved in the interconnection of all portions of the brain. There exists distinctive evidence that the process is neither chemical nor electrochemical. One possibility would be an electromagnetic field. Nevertheless, the obstacle to the construction of a model of consciousness involves a misconception basic to both, neurophysiology and quantum physics, concerning a shift in perception of the scientific outlook from causality to a more holographic or theological, as Webster described it, term. Furthermore, with the continued study into genealogy, it was evidenced that the DNA code contains all the information necessary to shape and organize biological systems, subsequently the junk DNA, once decoded and activated, becomes also an important aspect of the structure of microcosm. Floyd suggested that the screen of awareness may thus be viewed as an organic form of a holographic plate which processes three-dimensional perceptions and reconstructed images with equal facility. He further postulated that if the organic holograph would not possess three-dimensional perceptions to process, it would create its own reality to perceive and conceive. Floyd then further concluded that additional reflections on the process allowed for the inference that the screen, the holographic plate that he had for so long been attempting to identify with an organ, may actually function instead of an organ. And it began to appear to him that the pineal body occupies the midpoint at the center of a neutral energy field, at which point occurs the burst of light that is experienced as the screen of consciousness on which shifting figure-ground relationships represent external reality. Hence, he deduced that it would rather require the interaction of energy fields within the brain.

Superspace

On July 19th, 1967, the former director of the Foreign Economic Administration and assistant to the Secretary of Commerce Arthur Paul visited a small village in Tamil, approximately 70 miles north of Colombo, Ceylon, now known as Sri Lanka. He has been invited by the local parliament to witness the traditional annual fire-walking ceremony. He even marched over the coals himself towards the end without any signs of burn marks or other physical harm. One could almost term the laws of physics to be a statistical quirk, considering the impressive nature of the phenomena and its capability to be learnt at will by anyone. Yet, the fundamental particle still allows for much dispute between professionals, although science continually rules out further possible candidates for the position, the search for the building block of the universe is still pursued. Once the atom has been clearly not been the fiber of reality, that which its examination brought this part of the universe can hardly be termed as a mild discovery. Atomic experiments continue to devastate the planet and spoil the oceans, although it has nothing but destructive properties that cannot be controlled lightly. Heisenberg formed the statement that the ultimate nature of reality is beyond verbal description. A common denominator found both in the concept of the physics, yet also mysticism. Therefore, one could postulate that the nature of reality cannot be static. However, towards the end of the nineteenth century, Planck observed the subatomic particle range, and discovered that the energy of heat radiation is not emitted continuously, but appeared to be discharged in the shape of discrete units of energy or energy packets. Einstein termed these units of radiation, quanta, further suggesting that all forms of radiation including light can be propagated in the form of either waves or quanta. Shortly afterwards, it was discovered that light in fact behaved very much like particles and was propagated in discontinuous quanta. Subsequently, Einstein also devised the concept of the curvature of space preceding the presentation of his thesis regarding relativity in 1916. This curvature of space reavealed itself in the phenomena of gravity, furthermore the space-continuum in itself, a sort of nothingness, is curved and the concept of space being geometry was born. Ancient concepts of sacred geometry slowly came to light, to be relived and reinvented with continuous research until present day.

Beyond the Light Cone

According to the tantric concepts of the mystics, the perception of the universe existing within time is in actuality incorrect. Beyond the illusion of reality lies the void, in which the concept of time itself ceases to possess any meaning at all. D.T. Suzuki once stated that “In this spiritual world, there are no divisons such as the past, present and future, for they have contracted themselves into a single moment of the present, where live quivers in its true sense…” In consequence, Richard Feynman began to formulate the suggestion that a positron moving forward in time is actually an electron moving backwards through time, it becomes evident that the rational mind can only accommodate the concept beyond the boundaries of time. Furthermore, the concept that tachyons, particles that move arbitrarily fast, exist outside of space-time was constructed. In accordance to Einsteins thesis, the mass of a particle becomes indefinitely large as it approaches the speed of light, it has been therefore assumed that no particle can accelerate beyond the supposed light barried. The tachyon, however, begs to differ. As a result, all communication that would be exchanged between particles that are faster than the speed of light would naturally also be beyond space-time. Fred Wolf and Jack Sarfatti therefore concluded that the exchange of information may be tachyonic. In reference to this particular outlook, Sarfatti stated that “Each continuous world-line or space-line history is assigned a complex probability amplitude. All possible histories of the universe occur and interfere with each other. The regions of constructive interference of the countless interpenetrating universes allows for the most probable classical history of the universe, as we known it in usual state of consciousness. This is referred to as the Feynman-Dirac Action Principle, which is perhaps the most aesthetically satisfying conventional formulation of the quantum principle on the descriptive level.” Further interpretations of the quantum principle of the space-time path by Feynman suggest that an electron can be scattered backwards in time by electromagnetic vacuum fluctuation, thus it would be detected as a positron of opposite charge, yet possessing the same mass as moving forward in time. In my professional opinion, the thesis of the universal mind strongly supports the occurrence of all history within the present moment.

The Shape of Time

Retrocausality is defined by the meaning of the reverse of causality in a variety of probabilities. The retrocausal phenomena however does provide an infinite amount of options regarding the space-time continuum. If all possible branches leading backwards in time were to be observes, one would discover that they are almost no different to the ones traversing forward in time. DeWitt remarked that “The overwhelming majority of past branches would look like backwards movies of the future only if the present state of the universe were the result of a fluctuation from a state of equilibrium in an infinitely old universe. Despite the time-reversal invariance on the quantum level of the grand Schroedinger equation, neglecting weak interaction, there is no a priori reason why the wave function itself should possess a moment of time symmetry.” And in essence, he was absolutely correct. There is no reason to suspect that the world line of the universe should possess a moment in history from which one would be able to perceive the entire past as a mirror reflection of the future. Yet, this still reveals that time in itself has become a victim of prejudice, it has become common human nature to perceive it as something that has definite shape. Henceforth, the existence of tachyons has allowed certain professionals to hypothesize that they would more often than not present unsolvable paradoxes that are beyond a human sense of logic. In addition, Carl Jung was also of the opinion that Retrocausality might be capable of explaining the phenomena of the archetypes, primordial images that possess the point of origin. As old as time itself, yet still continuing to repeat themselves throughout infinity. Jung stated that “They are without known origin, and they reproduce themselves in any time or in any part of the world, even where transmissions by direct descent or cross-fertilization through migration must be rules out.”, which allowed for the development of the thesis involving the collective unconscious, shared by humanity. It has also been theorized that the images may be created randomly by the mind and then scattered backwards through time. However, I personally prefer Thomas Manns perception of the previous “As in a dream, it is our own will that unconsciously appears as an inexorable objective destiny, everything in it proceeding out of ourselves and each us being the secret theatre manager of our own dreams with us all, our fate may be the product of our inmost selves, or our wills and we are actually bringing about what seems to be happening to us.” Overall, causality can only countered by the existence of retro-causality, therefore the dualistic nature of the universes would perhaps result in time being too intertwined to be observed with any form of humanistic bias.

Tantra and Quantum Theory

The tantric theory is similar to the conception of Wheelers superspace. For instance, the Vedic concept of the nada and bindu appear to be identical to the concept of matter being both a wave and a vibration. When Brahma created matter, nada was the first produced movement in the ideating cosmic consciousness. Bindu literally translates to being a point. According to the tantra, once matter is viewed as being separate from consciousness, it can be observed as being consistent of numerous bindu and physical objects that are extended in space. Yet, if matter is more accurately perceived as being projected by the actual consciousness, physical objects no longer possess many three-dimensional points in space, consequently all collapses into one dimension and become the single point bindu. Furthermore, when electric lines of force converge upon a region of space, they do not merely cross each other, yet seem to converge and sink into the fabric of space, thus Wheeler concluded that they must be passing into a wormhole, stating that “a classical geometrodynamical electric charge is a set of lines of force trapped in the topology of space.”. Needless to mention that most concepts involved in the quantum physics of the time had been preceded by the formulation of Vedic scriptures. The tantras describe space being permeated by lines of force, known as the hairs of Shiva. However, centuries before that period in time, the texts referred to an expansion and contractions in the Akasa. Wheeler hypothesized that the electric charge or the lines in an electric or magnetic field are literally lines of force trapped in the fabric of space-time, whereas Sarfatti postulates that the organisation of matter is due to a spectrum of self-organising fields, which arranges matter out of the turbulent ocean of the quantum foam. Furthermore, Sarfatti was convinced that matter is nothing but gravitationally trapped light. The ring singularly of a rotating black-hole or white-hole is pictured as a photon or a neutrino, causing them to move round in a circle, which occurs as a result of the self-gravitation of the photon and the neutrino. He suggested that this would also allow for the interconnected nature of universes. According to the tantric tradition, after the collapse of the universe, it is withdrawn into the Sakti which created it. Additionally, it appears to collapse into the Siva bindu, the mathematical point that possesses no magnitude. It is therefore conceived that around the Siva bindu lies the coiled Sakti, which may be perceived as a mathematical line that comes into contact with the point around which it is coiled on every side. Since the point and the line possess neither spatial magnitude or dimension, they are conceived as being one and the same, although this particular line is known as the kundalini sakti, as it resembles the kundala, meaning coil. It is stated that in its awakened state, it manifests itself in spiralling motion, as it is witnessed in the revolving orbits of the planets. In sum, Wheelers conception of the quantum interconnectedness only exists to the extent that we are willing to conceive them. As if the dreamer is gradually awakening in the dream to realize the vast potential of the dream space, metaphorically speaking.

The Interpenetrating Universes

Solomon E. Asch once stated that we as humans possess the tendency towards conformity within society, an urge so strong that reasonably intelligent and well-meaning young individuals are willing to call white black is a matter of concern. And so it is. As the eminent cyberneticist Heinz von Foerster remarked, the human mind does not perceive that which is actually out there, but what it believes to be out there. Human sight is a result of the retinas absorbing light from the external world and conveying the signals to the brain. The very same is true for all sensory receptors. However, Foerster perceived the retinas to be blind to the quality of their stimulation and responsive only to their quantity. Unsurprising, the phenomenal world is not truly filled with colour and light, as there only electro-magnetic waves, which begs the questions, how the brain conjures all existential data to form the perceived universe. John Lilly postulated that in the province of connected minds, what the network believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. Furthermore, the multi-verse becomes a dualistic construct, in which each thing is grounded upon its opposite. Jung also incorporated the element of denial and expectation into the equation, which exerts a large amount of strain on each individual within society throughout history through the phenomena of peer pressure. However, as there are infinite perceptions, there will be infinite paradigms. Lawrence LeShan theorized that there may be two realities. The first one is the reality that we have come to know in our daily experience, consisting of solid objects and empty space, firmly ensconcing in a linear time sequence in which perceptions are strictly limited by the boundaries of the present. In this reality, he perceived minds to be distinctly separate from the universe. Due to the existence of paranormal phenomena, he postulated that the second reality is existent outside of the light cone, lingering beyond the regions of space-time. Although the concept has been seemingly “oversimplified”, one may indulge the thought that perhaps once both realities merge, they would exist simultaneously, and merely an aspect of reality is in essence beyond space-time. Nonetheless, Jerome S. Bruner is more of the opinion that we represent the world to ourselves and consequently respond to our representations, which in itself is a mystical conception. As if one perceives two fundamentally dissimilar, yet equally probable realities, ultimately a semantic creation mostly constructed by cultural, collective beliefs. Truth be told, reality is learnt and conditioned. In fact, the realization of the dreamlike nature of reality appears to be of exponential significance in countless mystical teachings in order to live ones life similarly and more consciously in the waking state. Yet more importantly, the present moment appears to be the key to infinite wisdom, if it can be captured and actualized within the perimeters of the soul.

The Reality-Structurer

It was once stated in the Adventure of Consciousness that “Consciousness can act on matter and transform it. This ultimate conversion of Matter into Consciousness and perhaps one day even of Consciousness into Matter is the aim of the supramental yoga. But there are many degrees of development of the consciousness-force, from the seeker or aspirant to just awakening to the inner urge of the yoga and even among yogis, there are many grades. It is here that the true hierarchy begins.” It is through the practice of visualization, meditation and breathing exercises, that numerous cultures apply, in order to raise the state of vibration and consciousness. Tantric mysticism, both Tibetan and Hindu, performed a detail analysis into the structure of matter, which parallels the world view of many quantum physicists. This fact hints towards the inference that the religious and scientific path may perhaps lead towards the same final conclusion, presented in an infinite amount of alterations in perception. From a different manner of interpreting the phenomenal world. For instance, Einstein insisted upon the fact that energy and matter are convertible or matter is simply highly condensed energy “E=mc^2”, which represents an increasingly similar outlook to the one held by the ancient Tantrists. As it is written in the Mundaka Upanishad “By energism of Consciousness Brahman is massed, from that Matter is born and from Matter, Life and Mind and the worlds.” However, Tantra does rely upon one specific principle, reality in itself is ultimately an illusion, maya in their terms. In accordance to the true nature of Buddha, the question of what actually exists and what does not in the phenomenal world appears to be clearly structured, however when in actuality we are all Schrödinger’s cat…In between existence and non-existence…In between duality and non-duality. Within the larger image of the integral order, there appears to be a higher sense of order and balance than that which is known mankinds current viewpoints. Truth be told, in Tibetan mysticism, the reality of mental creations often remains unquestioned. In fact, a certain type of atheism in India does not show devotion to the deity due to their belief, but to create the deity in what they perceive to be physical form. It is reinforced that the multi-verse is nothing more than a dream that has been brought into existence by the cosmic or universal mind. The knowledge that we are all truly one resides within that truth. It depends upon the thought and conduct of the individual, their metaprogramming, as it may. It is the choice towards one of two directions. Overall, if all forms of life were to be conscious of the dreamlike nature of reality and were to develop it increasingly, reality itself would be transformed and the cosmic play would perhaps lose its appeal, hence the development of the soul has a tendency to correspond with the depth of self-realization.

The New Cosmology

Sri Aurobindo once exclaimed “What then was the commencement of the whole matter? Existence has multiplied itself for the sheer delight of being and plunged into numberless trillions of forms so that is might find itself innumerably”. In reference to the Vedic legend that the self of the universe perceives all of existence, as a form of divine play. Almost similar to an eternal, infinite game of Hide and Seek. Being everyone at once, and yet no one at all. However, each game must come to an end. In eventuality, the self will become to realise its true nature and awaken from the countless dreams to its actual identity. It is the one and eternal self of the cosmos, therefore the game ends. Ironically, modern science is currently providing humanity with a scientific basis for the concept of religion from various aspects, such as radionics, psionics and other para-scientific research. After all, new physics does not directly offer a religious values or conceptions, yet it is indirectly a religious based on the psychology of human consciousness, which is in turn beyond the physical. One could even go as far as to claim that it is based upon the psychology of the entire universe or the universal mind itself. The nature of reality is naturally diverse, consequently the universe that humans have currently constructed for themselves will differ from the infinite amount of alternative realities that there are. It has been stated by Monroe that the most acceptable explanation is the wave vibration concept, which presumes the existence of an infinity of worlds that are all operating at different frequencies, one of which is this particular physical world.” In fact, Monroe perceived that this infinity of worlds would be able to occupy the same area that is occupied by our phenomenal world, similar to the various wave frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum can simultaneously occupy the very same space with a minimum of interaction. Monroe confirmed that only under rare circumstances, worlds actually interface with one another. In my professional opinion, the prospect that there are an infinite amount of probable, even entirely opposite, dimensions, multi-verses, existences or realities leads me to the conclusion that illusion of space and time must reach further and deeper than mankind can currently fathom. In an infinite space-time continuum within the conception of eternity, perhaps even the universal mind after it has merges still requires to merge with something larger than itself. Within infinity, one may never be able to reach the end of the non-physical hierarchy.

New Physics and Paranormal Phenomena

The term radionics describes the application of alternative medicine based upon frequencies, the concept was developed by Albert Abrahams’ in the early 1900s. In the course of his research Abrahams made the startling discovery that diseases could be measured in terms of energy, and he devised and instrument which calibrated dials which enabled him to identify and measure disease reactions and intensities. From this work, called E.R.A. of the Electronic Reaction of Abrahams, came Radionics as we know it today. Leading British physician Sir James Barr considered Abrams’ discoveries to be among the most significant of the day. According the radionics principles, each individual will exert certain energy frequencies, those that are more of the characteristics of a healthy individual and the exact opposite. Its foundation is based upon the ground principles of quantum physics, regarding its perspective on frequencies and vibrations. In the practice, radionics devices purport to diagnose and heal by applying appropriate frequencies to balance the discordant frequencies, which are resultant in the disease. Frequency, more or less describes the procedure of the restabilising of imputed energy that do not correspond to the property of energy within the body in the scientific sense. Not surprisingly, certain elements of the medical and scientific community attacked Abrams’ work and sought to discredit him. In 1924, the year of Abrams’ death a committee of the Royal Society of Medicine under the Chairmanship of Sir Thomas Horder investigated his claims. To the astonishment of medicine and science, the committee, after exhaustive tests, has to admit that Abrams’ claim was proven. In sum, the basic behind radionic theory and practice is based upon the concept that man and all life forms share a common foundation in that they are immersed in the electro-magnetic field of the earth, and secondly that each life form has its own electro-magnetic field, which if sufficiently distorted will ultimately result in sickness of the organism. Radionics accepts the primary conception that all is energy, subsequently it views organs, diseases and remedies as being in possession of their own particular frequency. These factors can be expressed in numerical values which are known as ‘Rates’ or in h form of Geometric Patterns. These provide the means by which the practitioner identifies and treats disease at a distance. Radionics also recognizes that there are a number of finely organized fields of energy, which lie beyond those identified by science, and that these fields can be utilized for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Thus, it may be stated that Radionics is a healing art, in which physics and para-physics, science and religion, gradually have begun to meet and merge. The Radionics practitioner in a long-distance diagnosis utilizes his intuitive faculty, which science now believes arises from right brain hemisphere functions. The intuitive mind has access to information which lies beyond the reach of rational and logical abilities which appear to be meditated through the left brain hemisphere. By tuning in both his mind and Radionic instrument to the distant patient, the practitioner applies his faculties of extra-sensory perception and is able, through observing the reactions of the detection apparatus under his control, to determine what the underlying causes of disease are. By identifying causes which may be hidden for clinical and more orthodox procedures, the Radionic practitioner is able, then, to determine with accuracy the correct treatment which will eliminate this underlying element. A Radionic diagnosis is not a medical diagnosis, but as previously stressed, a means of identifying and assessing the underlying causes which give rise to pathological states and their systems. These may or may not coincide with current medical opinion, but this is to be expected when the practitioner’s approach is along para-physical lines. Once the radionics diagnosis has been concluded, the practitioner has completed a full health profile of the patient, including functional integrity of all organ systems, psychological states and imbalances that appear to be present within the energy structures, which form the energy fields that underlie the body, the adequate radionics treatment is then chosen. All pathological states of mind and their causes contain their own frequency of energy patterns, these can be treated at a distance through the radionic instrument by employing rates or geometric patterns. A bloodspot or snippet of hair from the patient, typically known as the patients witness, acts as a link between the practitioner, his Radionic instrument and the patient. Essentially, treatment is founded upon the projection of healing energy patterns. Certain practitioners prefer to add the wave form of homeopathic remedies, colors, flower essences and herbal extract. However, the accumulation of clinical evidence presents that it is very effective in a significant number of cases. “Action at a distance”, as this phenomenon is often referred to, is not new to modern science. These days a significant amount of research is being conducted by scientific institutions in the field and results are confirming that humans, plants and animals respond to projected thought patterns. In addition, this phenomenon occurs no matter how large the distance between the subjects under investigation. Their findings now bear out the rationale of Radionics. One of the great advantages of Radionics is that it is often possible to discover potentially serious conditions at an early stage and, by appropriate treatment, prevent them for developing to a point where they become clinically identifiable. Moreover, since Radionic treatment occurs at a non-physical level, it cannot harm any living tissue or produce any unnatural side effects. Radionics is concerned with the healing of the whole man, with the health pattern or entelechy of the individual. The health pattern is a singular, unitary force within the structures of man that ensures adequate and optimum functioning of the systems of his body. The purpose of Radionic therapy is to help the individual to re-establish his optimum pattern of health. In a way, allowing the individual to move one step closer towards wholeness. Overall, the scope of radionics in theory is unlimited, as it based upon a concept of unlimited probabilities within the new line of physics. However, in practicality, it is limited by the sensitivity, knowledge and expertise of the practitioner. On one spectrum, it is applied to determine the structural and functional integrity of the body, identifying the causes of sickness, hidden within. On the other side of the spectrum, the determination of the states of the energy centers form a clear view of the energy flow within the patients body, enabling the practitioner to gain a deeper level of insight into the reason behind certain physical and psychological imbalances. A synthesis of the data accumulated often reveals the physical and psychological strengths, weaknesses, limitations and capacities in order to release energy blockages that no longer support the individual, in fact, they have become more than a mere hindrance. The concept of radionics in essence holds very much similarity towards Jungs notion of complexes, henceforth once the energetic disturbances would have been released, the psyche is initially unburdened by previous experiences, consequently the energy that had been used to supply the trauma can now be utilized for a cause that may be much greater, such as, towards the evolutionary potential of the human species. Once the rerouted energy flows distinctly through the body without much intervention, the development of psionics at that stage of development would be a stepping stone towards more solid and more widely accepted results. Once one gains the power of artificially correcting the energy flow of the chakra system through technology, such as tachyon generators, psychotronics, orgone accumulators, radionics or countless other means that have been developed over the years, one would naturally be capable of stimulating those specific areas similarly in order to awaken them sufficiently. Several companies across the United States and the United Kingdom have slowly begun to develop and combine certain paranormal aspects, such as radionics mixed with the vibrational frequency of prana that is added to crystal power technology and variant forms of psychic amplifiers, which more or less apply gold into the workings of the “spiritual machine” as it has come to be known as. Since psionics has become a practice far more common, and although it exists within each living being the potential may be dormant or unconscious, it has become only natural within the realms of human curiosity to seek that type of power and understanding. Nonetheless, in my professional opinion the education and training into the nature of psionics within the phenomenal world is not necessarily optional. Each human being is receptive to the energies of the self and the energies of others, and at times this can result in rather negative consequences, such as individuals that are innately unaware of their psychic predisposition, which is affecting their circumstances less than favourably. Psionics may be a first step towards the next level of evolution, yet its philosophies would also provide humanity with a greater degree of forgiveness, insight and peace. As one no longer simply perceives oneself and becomes aware of being part of the whole, the increase of equanimity and discipline within the external reality becomes inevitable.

Detachment Versus Sociopathy

Introduction

Within philosophy, the term detachment represents a state in which an individual overcomes their attachment toward desire for all objects, individuals or concepts of the phenomenal world, henceforth attaining a heightened perspective. Within Bahá’í Faith, Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and Taoism, non-attachment, which stands for the release from desire as well as suffering, is a significant principle and ideal. Detachment is also a central concept in Zen Buddhism. One of the most important technical Chinese terms for detachment is “wú niàn” (無念), which literally means “no thought.” This does not signify the literal absence of thought, but rather the state of being “unstained” (bù rán 不染) by thought. Therefore, non-attachments represents being detached from one’s thoughts. It is the separation of the individual from their own thoughts and opinions in detail as to not be harmed mentally and emotionally by them. The mentality is generally also applied towards others. In addition, within Hinduism the view of detachment comes from the understanding of the nature of existence and the true ultimate state sought by the practitioner. In other terms, while one is responsible and mindful without concerns of the past as well as future. The detachment is focused towards the result of one’s actions rather than towards all aspects of life. This concept is cited extensively within Puranic and Vedic literature.

Zen and Sociopathy

There are a variety of parallels between sociopathy and Zen Buddhism, such as emotional detachment, non-attachment to the self and mindfulness. In addition, Buddhists, similar to sociopaths, can appear as unemotional or emotionally cold. Conversely, Buddhism appreciates emotions as well as deeds that are spontaneous and based upon intuition, merely not those arising from logic or the rational mind, as it may. Yet, a sociopath is genetically  provided with the free will of choice, as it may, to develop the will to form attachments or to detach from their surroundings. The archetype of the monk and the sociopath, in fact, are reflections of one another. Whereas the Monk strives to detach himself, the sociopath often attempts to involve himself. Although there is a fine line between morally righteous actions, conducted for the progression of mankind, and morally corrupt actions that serve merely the perpetrator. According to Carl Jung, this line also exists on the fourth stage of individuation. Nonetheless, would it even be probable to suggest that the sociopathic mind is closer to enlightenment? Or perhaps on the other side of it? The monk and the sociopath view the nature of reality from almost exactly opposite perspectives, operating at entirely different parallels. For instance, a sociopath can be threatened and perplexed by emotion due to the unpredictability that it brings. Emotion has the capacity to throw actions out of balance, as it may, disrupting the behaviour of the individual. The monk, however, aims to distance themselves from emotion whilst remaining compassionate towards the emotions of others. To a sociopath that is easily agitated, an emotional outburst could trigger the desire to interfere with the behaviour of the individual, resulting a variety of probable outcomes, ranging from loss of consciousness due to blunt force head trauma to death caused by the rapid snapping of the neck. The monk, on the other hand, would view it as being provided with an opportunity of growth through the challenge of calming the unsettled individual with emotional support and meditative practises.

Mindfulness

To centre oneself entirely in the present moment requires the gradual release of the attachment to all forms of thought, most significantly the self. It also necessitates the letting go of ones attachment to emotions, which are also a kind of thought. In essence, the individual ceases to think and feel. “As long as one is caught up thinking or feeling, one is occupied reflecting or anticipating.” Within Buddhism, to live in such states of illusion perpetuated by thought is represented by The First Truth, which states that life is suffering. To therefore release the attachments to their own thoughts allows the individual to raise their level of awareness, which with freedom from illusion and suffering is attained. This increase in awareness is accompanied by compassion, arising from the direct experience of the individuals connection to all within existence through the regular practice of meditation. According to Buddhism, all beings possess the Buddha nature within themselves, even if it does not surface throughout an entire lifetime. This illustrates that at the core…we are all the same. Perceiving the subject in this manner, the difference between the sociopath and the monk is an illusion in itself.

The Mask of the Self

What are we without words? What are we without form? If one were to simply look at any individual as a whole, disregarding any thoughts of attraction or judgement. Merely perceiving them as they are. Usually until that individual speaks, they possess no language or nationality, yet we have already categorised them according to social class, status and appearance. These are also labelled as attachments…Attachments to that which is perceived as inappropriate and to that which is considered to be socially acceptable. Once one can get passed all superficial matters and observe another being,  perceiving them as possessing a unique personality and mind of their own…A intricate purpose and path of their own, which is connected to you through the very nature of reality itself. By mere existence upon the same planet, the same country or the same city, one human being affects another, often without conscious realisation. Succeeding all the challenges and struggles of life, we will all inevitable have to discover a manner, in which to live with ourselves and our surroundings. Humanity no longer values nature in the ways they used to. In fact, within the United States it has become against federal law to grow any kind of food in the garden of the average American citizen. Needless to mention, numerous elderly ladies were arrested and received ample amounts of fines and prison time to ponder upon their wrongdoings. Yet, have any human rights actually been violated? It would perhaps dent the wallets of the local supermarket. The true goal has a much more profound affect, the illegality of self-sufficiency. Within modern society, the archetype of the true monk has nearly faced extinction. Except for a few remote corners of the world, there are not as many die-hard monks as there used to be. Monks that would rise at 4am each morning to perform aerobic exercises and then spend countless hours in meditation every day. The ideal monk is in a meditative state throughout waking and sleeping consciousness, continuously focused upon the present. Such an individual cannot exist within modern Western society. They would represent all that which the capitalist and the socialist wish to abolish by pure nature of being. It is the monks way to simply be.
Not try, not do… To just be.
Everyone has at one point made a mistake that was irreparable. Some more than others. Learning by failure is a process that we all experience within life. Yet, once one puts aside superficial differences or quarrels with ourselves and others, one arrives at the inference that the suffering of life, its encompassing attachments and illusions, is a universal condition.

Conclusion

Within most organised religions, the vow of poverty stands for the physical side of detachment, whereas Eastern religions focus their energies upon purifying as well as cleansing the body, mind and spirit. They are intrinsically aware that each individual possesses their own path towards enlightenment that will differ from the path of another. Nonetheless, there are common denominators, which create the suffering that is experienced within life. The goal in itself becomes to transcend the pain experienced and distance oneself from it. Within a wide range of belief structures, the practitioner begins to accept full responsibility for their thoughts, their emotions and their actions. Partial responsibility is also accepted for each trauma experienced. The notion becomes to separate oneself from situations, which cause internal grief or unfavourable circumstances. To not involve oneself in the drama of life, therefore allows one to become detached from it. One does no longer requires or even desires the drama that life brings, thus one simply removes the causal factors that trigger them by editing oneself out of the situation. Numerous yogis and sages have retreated to the mountains for decades before re-surfacing to the public within a state of Samadhi, otherwise known as the ultimate state of peace and enlightenment.
Sociopathy, now known as anti-social disorder, is generally a genetic condition that cannot be cured or mended. Only the individual can gain control of their inclinations in order to expand their understanding of others. Needless to mention, countless high functioning sociopaths have marked history beyond the point of return, especially within religious or spiritual professions. Whereas psychopathy prefers the long drawn out emotional pain in others, the sociopath has no preference. More often than not, the response of a sociopath is provoked into violence whilst the psychopath does not necessarily require a trigger event to victimise another. Most interestingly of all, the behavioural tendencies of a psychopath would not allow them to linger on a mountain for decades without human contact, whereas the sociopath would experience no care or consideration towards the task. Psychopaths and sociopaths, although it is a common misconception that they are increasingly alike, nothing could be further from the truth. The psychopath experiences an urge, a compulsion or a drive of some sort, generally speaking, whereas the sociopath does not. The most suitable analogy would perhaps be an emotional filter that is different from the average human being. The emotions are present within the sociopath, yet they are disconnected and in the background. Hence, a sociopath with anger management issues can become a rather clinically challenging subject. As sociopathy is a genetic condition, it affects the very core make-up of the individual. If pushed beyond a certain point, the sociopath cannot differentiate between a slight emotional outburst and the action of snapping a neck. It is a whiplash between extreme emotions that differs from bipolar disorder, as the sociopath experiences conscious choice of expression of emotions to a certain degree. In conclusion, the choice of detach oneself for sociopathy, similarly the development of the love-map for a rapist, occurs during childhood. It becomes a foundation stone in the mental development of the sociopath. Truth be told, there is very little distinction between the warrior monk and the sociopath in moments of extreme discontent. Both ways of living are mirror images of another. They are equal sides of the same spectrum, attempting to alter the circumstances, merely approaching the matter from opposing viewpoints. Ironically, they are increasingly alike. Both are triggered by the need of the soap opera within real life by other human beings. The unintentional or intentional creation of problems within daily life. Both also hold another aspect in common, a neutrality towards animals. The sociopath as well as the monk would prefer to focus on the owner of the animal that was trained to attack over the animal itself, whereas most other types of individuals focus less on the actions of the participants and more towards the action of the animal. However, for instance, whereas monks would prefer to prevent animal testing, urging for the animals to be released back into nature, sociopaths rather prevent the average citizen from applying products, which stem from the cruelty towards animals, via methods of social engineering. In essence, the mere difference between both approaches is the choice that is made to start with. The first choice that guides all other choices. For instance, the monk has the ability choose to distance himself instead of involving himself in altering society until society has changed itself or to risk changing it himself, whereas the sociopath is in favourable circumstances provided with the choice whether not to kill whilst altering society or not to kill and distance himself from society, whilst remaining at the core of it. The sociopath would through instinct choose to remain within society either way. Yet, the choice becomes whether to distance onself from society by whatever means necessary or to modify it by any means necessitated. Conversely, the monk chooses to separate himself from society by whatever means necessary until he chooses to alter society by any means necessitated. One can even go as far as to predict the behaviour of a monk by observing a sociopath, and vice versa. Yet, the first choice at all times determines the probabilities of choices that are to follow.

Holographic Universe

Introduction
Karl Pribram, a neurophysiologist, and David Bohm, a quantum physicist, independently discovered the validity of their thesis by approaching the subject from various angles, stumbling upon very similar conclusions in regards to the holographic nature of the Universe, however the research conducted by other professionals greatly supported their paradigm, as many scientists at the time shared the common frustration that the scientific community held a certain level of prejudice towards the hypothesis. The idea first surfaced during Pribrams enquiry into the process of memories being stored within the brain in the 1940, when he was also observing the limbic system, and its involvement in emotions and behaviour. Around 1946, Pribram assisted Karl Lashley in ongoing research in the formation and mechanisms of memories. Separate parts of the brain were removed, yet without a specific outcome, henceforth the inference that memories are distributed throughout the brain developed. As the brain stores an immense amount of information, the process of recalling and forgetting an event could be compared to shining a laser beam on a piece of film but failing to adjust it to the desired angle. The holographic paradigm offers many other analogies in relation to the memory process, such as facial recognition, associative tendencies for memory and cases of eidetic memory. The interference patterns, resulting from the interference, presented in holography allowed Pribram insight into the reason behind the overall distribution of memory. Gradually further research provided additional data, such as Lashleys discovery, involving the visual cortex, which formed experimental results that were compatible with the idea that a photographic-like image is projected onto the cortical surface. Pribram formulated that when an object or an individual is perceived externally, the experience in actuality manifests internally, at times even beyond the physical boundaries of the body.

The thesis of the holographic brain eventually gained experimental support, when Paul Pietsch, a biologist at Indiana University, conducted over 700 trials of removing a salamanders brain and damaging them in various ways in order for the salamander to be unable to feed after the brain had been reinserted, yet the feeding behaviour continuously returned to normal. Jean Fourier afterwards developed the equations to convert images into wave forms and vice versa, named the Fourier Transforms. However, he was only one of many that contacted Pribram during that period in time, regarding evidence to assist him in his thesis. In the 1960s, it was confirmed that each brain cell in the visual cortex responds to a different pattern. In addition, later research validated that Fouriers mathematical equations were able to convert the visual images into his language of wave patterns. These wave forms contain hidden patterns, allowing for the prediction of the next movement within that fraction. Subsequently, this also allowed for the possibility that the brain may be breaking down frequencies into their components. Pribram initially arrived at the conclusion that the universe in itself is truly a vast, infinite frequency domain. However, then he stumbled upon the research of David Bohm, providing him with the possible answer that he was seeking after all, that the entire universe is a hologram.

David Bohms formed the conclusion of the holographic universe during his research of subatomic particles, for example, if matter is fragmented into smaller parts of the whole, such as electrons, protons etc. at one point, they will no longer possess the traits of objects. They will lack dimension, and therefore could not be measured at the time. However, another discovery displayed that electrons are capable of manifesting as either a particle or a wave, henceforth electrons can perform actions in wave form, which the particle would be unable to imitate and vice versa. This shape shifting ability is common to all groups of subatomic particles. Yet, one cannot be precisely certain, as they are always both. These are known as quanta. Above all, quanta are only perceived as being a particle when they are being observed by anyone. Therefore, experimental findings suggest that an electron, when unobserved, is at all times a wave. As a result, the thesis was constructed that subatomic particles, also referred to as the fabric of reality, are interconnected and function as an indivisible system. For instance, in the positronium atom, subsequently to the decay of the positron and the electron, no matter how large the distance between the photons may seem, the angle of polarization always appear identical.

Additionally, Bohm later on observed that the ocean of electrons seemed to shift their behaviour towards being a part of a greater interconnected whole. With the increased dissatisfaction in several prevailing outlooks on physics, Bohm postulated that electrons do exist in the absence of observers. Despite Einsteins growing interest in Bohms alternative version of quantum theory, Bohm was certain that subatomic regions require further exploration by the scientific community, thus he constructed the field quantum potential, in which he hypothesized that the subquantum level encompasses all of space.

Nevertheless, when Bohms and Pribrams theories were combined, the result that was created was often fiercely rejected by the old-fashioned approach of science, in frequency this was due to philosophical differences. At the time, it was widely believed that it was probable for any theory to be complete. Bohm openly protested against the statement, reinforcing that such a mind-set may spoil further expansion in the field, as its nature may be infinite. Also, according to his view, no singular cause and effect association is every truly separated from the universe as a whole, emphasising upon the significance of wholeness, instead of the common scientific perspective of necessitated fragmentation. This previous research slowly but surely allowed for the concealed hierarchies of order within the universe to gradually come into view for Bohm and Pribram, although not all scientists followed his pathway, a deeper degree of reality was patiently unfolding. Both had discovered a nonlocal universe, a nonlocal self, which assembled the facts, regarding the undivided nature of all, and that further separation of aspects may lead to the extinction of humanity.

The Holographic Universe And The Unconscious

Carl Jung reasoned that the symbols encountered in his clients dreams, visions, hallucinations and fantasies hold information that cannot be entirely explained by their biographical history, instead he speculated that they all originated from the same source, the collective unconscious. He called those images archetypes. No other hypothesis at the time, except for the holographic paradigm, presented an explanation, since all things in the universe are interconnected, although the appearance of separation appear as a part of physical reality, truth be told, there are no limitations or borders. Bohm consequently shared his allegiance to the thesis by stating that “Deep down the consciousness of mankind is one.”

Due to the implicate order, individuals appear to be slightly restricted in access beyond the personal unconscious, unless in a non-ordinary state of consciousness. In the 1960s, Montague Ullman performed various dream studies in order to determine whether human beings are capable of holding a conversation in a manner, which could not be explained by scientific research at the time, for instance, one individual is kept asleep in one room, and another is asked to pain an image. Even though the results were mainly inconclusive, there were slight traces of unconscious knowledge. Henceforth, he continued employing the technique of dream analysis during psychotherapy, he examined the relentlessness of dreams, as they attempted to convey significant lessons to the client, often appearing in different metaphors to trigger a form of self-realisation and personal development. He concluded that this monitoring process cannot merely be attempting to achieve the welfare of the individual, yet this may represent the concern shared for the survival and evolution of the species, which intents to generate a personal transformation. Subsequently, Ullman observed a cosmic feeling of oneness and loss of physical boundaries in a variety of his patients, for instance, psychotics, schizophrenics and more profound holographic thinking patterns in manic depressive clients. Also he emphasized that most human being possess an internal mechanism that serves to protect individuals from initiating too much contact with the implicate order than can be processed at any one time during dreams. However, Fred Alan Wolf shared the belief that all dreams are internal holograms, certain less vivid dreams appear as virtual images, yet when there is a conscious observer, the waves converge at the point of focus. Yet, he was also of the opinion that lucid dreams in actuality are travels to parallel universes, although one cannot be certain whether that includes all types of dreams, as there would be an infinite amount of other realities to be explored.

While Stanislav Grof was performing his LSD research, the phenomenon of transpersonal experiences, involving the collective unconscious became more tangible, he also supported the lack of distinction between the fragments and the whole, since his sessions were often filled with archetypal imagery and symbolism, as each small aspect of the experience is capable of representing a rather large amount of information. Each time Grof witnessed a non-ordinary state of consciousness, he believed the underlying holographic order was surfacing. Nonetheless, multiple personalities disorder often display a collection of smaller wholes due to mind-splitting traumatic experiences, although closely related to the dynamics of the original personality, in most cases they will be unable to retain their former character, but build upon a new foundation of all aspects of the self in one. Multiple personalities are frequently capable of altering all about themselves, scars, allergies, brain-wave patterns, wounds etc. which may vanish by the unconscious application of rapid cellular regeneration.

Holographic Principles

Throughout the last few decades, countless individuals, suffering from terminal cancer sought alternative treatment options due to the dim, short-lived predictions that they were provided with. In fact, the therapeutic use of imagery proved to in the least extend the amount of time that was the determined life-expectancy, whereas others benefited entirely from the daily techniques. For instance, the visualization generated in these cases yielded as much power and more than the external condition that was being combated against. The influence the images hold often trigger physical functions over time, however the very seed of the idea can often be traced back to the imagination itself, thus the intention would be forced to permeate through all subtle levels of the holographic order to eventually rise above them and become manifest within physical reality. However, since the nature of visualization can be rather specific, physiological and anatomical knowledge of the processes interfering with the balance of the whole should be investigated in fine detail. Yet, there is another factor to be considered in the progression towards full health, the attitude attached towards it. In frequency, individuals possessing an optimistic outlook upon their healing naturally stand a higher chance than those with a pessimistic view, it should be noted here that fear carries a very dense resonance, especially when repressed.

Nevertheless, methods of guided imagery can be applied in various aspects of society, for example, sports, martial arts, lucid dreaming, astral projection and so on, in order to improve the success rate and personal capabilities. As visualization operates on a subliminal level of the mind and the images in themselves are considered to be of a holographic nature, physical processes are activated on a deeper level of reality. In addition, another phenomenon that contributes to the holographic paradigm would be the placebo effect, in which actual medicine is often substituted by a saline solution or sugar pills. In 1950, several patients presented themselves with angina pectoris, instead of ordering customary surgery, all of them were opened up in the operating room and then swiftly closed back up again in order to produce an effective placebo effect, initially created by tricking the mind into the thought pattern of a successful procedure. A similar effect was produced during ancient healing rituals. Nevertheless, the behaviour exhibited by the physician and type of procedure to administer it can be vital in assessing its effectiveness, hence an injection has a higher rate of effectiveness than a pill, although the colour of the pill also proves significant in the mental process. Conclusively, the holograms surrounding our health protocols seem to be varied dependent upon the individual psyche.

The belief systems that are constructed by the individual regularly impress upon them, such as the beliefs, which are culturally imposed upon them by community naturally affects their actions, but the influence of ones philosophy far extends beyond that, it affects every aspect of the false self. For instance, optimism increases the strength of the immune system, happiness naturally improves ones state of health, also stress lowers the immune response. There are more severe examples, Jack Schwartz was held in a concentration camp, thus he was subject to an immense amount of cruelty and all forms of indecent assault, which caused him to develop the ability to control his own internal biological processes, allowing for him to take full responsibility of his own health. The holographic principles cannot be demonstrated, they already have been on numerous occasions in various countries, one can only attain true realization of them, once one has been able to gain insight into the truth of reality.

Reality-Field

Numerous accounts of immunity to fire has been documented in association with the peak experience of religious faith, however it is suspected that the immunity in itself is caused by the phenomenon of psycho-kinesis. Grof suspected the law of physics may not be static after all, hence an individual would only be able to access the implicate order during an altered state of consciousness. Gordon Globus described it as the mind generating a physical reality out of the raw material (non-corporeal) of the implicate order, conversely many are of the opinion that there could be an infinite number of separate realities. In 1871, an african-american blacksmith was capable of withstanding steaming hot metal without the slightest remainder of burn marks. In the presence of a committee, he heated a shovel and held it against the bottom of his feet, additionally he also poured liquid lead onto his teeth, leaving it there until it eventually solidified without any sign of physical harm.

Around the 1980s, a soviet laboratory was able to discover neutrinos with mass. Although this may provide support towards Jahn and Dunne, it cannot be precisely proven that subatomic particles are manufactured unconsciously by the observer. Therefore, the possibility that human perception may not be based upon data received through the five senses. Through a variety of experimental evidence assembled during hypnotherapy sessions, it is entirely possible for a client to exchange his sense perception for that of another. Additionally, accounts of telepathy within a mental form of reality has also been experienced during the experiments. Both parties were able to communicate with each other by creating their own shared reality, henceforth a field effect is evident between them, a reality field binding them, as it may. Factually, one cannot be certain, whether one is constantly sensing or receiving information from reality fields, or whether each individual has their own, perhaps several.

Josephson and Globus both proposed that objective reality may be produced out of the collective memories of humanity, whereas there are other experiences, such as psycho-kinesis, levitation, and telepathy, which is entirely produced by the individuals willpower. Bohm shared the outlook that psycho-kinesis and telepathy may be the result of a resonance (of meaning) conveyed either from mind to mind or mind to object. As distance is of no significance, the phenomena will appear equally as powerful anywhere within the universe.

However, if the thesis of the reality field is accurate, as each individuals perception naturally differs from another, each being would possess their own reality-field, thus in the occurrence of PK or telepathy, both of the reality-fields either merge to form one or an entirely new one is created out of the conscious or unconscious intent of either one or both parties.

Sai Baba, for instance, a master in manifestation and bilocation, often portrays his significant abilities in crowds. He has been known to snap his finger and appear about 40 yards away instantaneously. Since the phenomenon of instant teleportation, except for lucid dreams, is considered to be against the law of physics, unless highly advanced technology is involved, the holographic theory, involving the reality-fields from which the universe is constructed, offers the explanation that the “laws of physics” only apply to our existence as we know it due to the fact that we believe them to, we expect them to…We are so deeply absorbed in our own programming that most of us do not choose to look beyond the horizon, out of the fear of falling over the edge. Yet, history can only repeat itself for so long, until extinction or evolution occurs.

Holographic Human Energy Field

The mind often prides itself upon its analytical ability, however the procedure of receiving the image, its processing in the temporal lobes, followed by the eventual arrival at the visual cortices could hardly be considered to be accurate. Therefore, the 50 percent of visual data perceived by our eyes and another 50 percent of information, originating from our perception of the phenomenal world, such as our expectations, wishes, dreams etc., form the reality that is known to us. As the universe in itself could be viewed as a frequency domain, converted into visual images by our own facilities, the brain has naturally began to edit certain aspects of reality out of the picture. For example, it is quite well known that children are more psychically attuned than adults and thus if trained in the matter respond at a swifter pace. This phenomenon can be explained by the idea of “breaking out the matrix”. Many medical professionals have dedicated their entire lives to the research of the illusion itself, it is merely instinctive to frown and reject any idea that may negatively influence their entire profession. Throughout the last few years, I have been studying various forms of surgery manuals, and their chemical counterparts. Then, I stumbled upon an article of a physician in India, who performed surgeries by the use of his ability to view auras. To my disappointment, further research concluded that this phenomenon was far and few between, although most of the professionals in India practice a form of ayurvedic medicine. Nevertheless, the phenomenon in itself does not stand alone. A large amount of medical professionals are beginning to realise the vast potential of reading the energy field, as it literally manifests all internal, psychological, mental, psychical and physiological processes of the individual. Although the aura is frequently perceived in different forms due to the individual nature of the psyche, there are common denominators, which allow for the subject to scientifically map it out further. In relation to the holographic universe, the human energy field displays that which is not yet manifest. The aura contains various layers of energy, each layer will be less dense than the previous. These layers also cover various multidimensional aspects., such as the etheric body, the astral body, the mental body and the emotional body, each one has its own techniques for multidimensional travel. Hence, one could form the inference that each individual in itself could be conceived as being an entire universe.. In fact, there are most likely enough inner realities in order to facilitate the theory. Biological frequency research evidently supports the holographic paradigm and has in its own right the ability to further the development of less harmful, frequency enhancing medical technology.

Since the energy field both influences the physical body and the brain, the true action of free will has come into question, yet what if what we see ourself to be is as illusionary as the world that surrounds us…What if the true decision made is not on a conscious levels but merely works its way up the levels? That would allow for the theory that our waking consciousness is limited and only unfolds its true potential in an altered state with the actual realizations of our capabilities.

The Illusion of Time And Space

As past, present and future do not appear to be static and non-linear. As evidenced by numerous accounts of cooperation between clairvoyants and archaeologists, events of the past are quite easily accessible by the means of retrocognition. In consequence, precognition or premonitions do not seem to be merely a figment of the imagination, in fact, several cases that were documented in detail throughout history, such as the sinking of the Titanic, the bombing of the twin towers and the burning of the Hindenburg, clearly convey that these kinds of visions can be a life or death matter. Henceforth, future occurrences may not be as random as previously thought. Although this almost threatens the concept of free will, in many records there is evidence of various routes that one may be able to traverse. Knowing the unfolding of an event, does not merely allow for knowing that which is going to happen, but it also provides a higher degree of choice. To acknowledge what one has seen as the truth, or to question ones own vision, thus ultimately choice has a tendency to remain, yet mostly in order not to disturb the divine play and pre-marked pathways that one may have created before reincarnation. These assumptions are naturally in favour of the holographic universe theory, however there are still further implications to be considered. The effect, which the holographic paradigm, applies to the nature of time and space would be considered as illusionary, yet as infinite and immortal, as everything within existence. If one were to truly accept the concept of reincarnation, travelling through infinity one life at a time until one reaches the ultimate evolution that no longer requires that which we perceive to be “physical form”, the implications exhibited around the globe would financially cripple more than merely the economy. Although mysticism is deeply integrated in most ancient scriptures that remained unaltered during the centuries, the ones used by mainstream religions have been edited to ensure Christianitys firm grasp over society for decades. Hence, spirituality and religion have distanced themselves.

Nonetheless, if the concept of time is in itself an illusion, space, being deeply rooted into time, also becomes an illusion in the holographic paradigm. Therefore, the space time contiuum is non-local in essence, which allows for the thesis that as everything is one, everything occurs at once, everywhere, throughout the whole of time. Out of body experiences and near death experiences clearly support this hypothesis by presenting hundreds of cases with similar statements, describing a timeless, formless, infinite realm constructed by thoughts, hopes, expectations and desires. The Tibetan Book of the dead also reinforces this conclusion, however in a more controlled manner, since it contains in depth descriptions of the visions and experiences through which the individual is guided. However, due to the nature of the buddhist practice, the document would be memorized, thus the expectation of a pre-created path could take shape after the point of death. Incorporating the multi-verse theory, including time and space being of human construct, within the holomovement, nothing can truly be physical or static.

Spirit And The Holographic Paradigm

In view of the holographic paradigm, my personal opinion may not entirely reflect Talbot’s perspective, however it very closely mirrors the ideas brought forth by David Bohm and Karl Pribram. Ancient doctrines, proceeding Christianity, often describe the soul as being of non-physical origin. For example, certain eastern traditions reinforce the belief of reincarnation, especially in transgender cases, as these have a tendency of leading to the accumulation of high spiritual wisdom. The knowledge that the body given may not suit the expectations is a harsh and necessary truth for them, yet it simultaneously strengthens the fact that “You are not your body. You are not your mind. You are not your emotions.”, which often intentionally creates a degree of detachment towards the material realm, especially in a community, in which spiritual advancement is held in the highest regard.

In my personal opinion, the soul is immortal, every-changing. In actuality, I doubt that there is much that remains on a conscious level from one reincarnation to the other, however the essence remains throughout infinity and eternity. In an interview, regarding the 2012 galactic alignment, the Princess of Japan discussed the subject of her views on reincarnation intently, she stated that the part that remains is the unconditional love of our being. However, at the very depth of the psyche, all past lifetimes would still be remembered. Painful memories would be manifest as an unconscious desire or nag during the next physical life, until it has been healed or until one has transcended the physical nature of the universe. It is rumoured that all knowledge is stored in a non-corporeal library, known as the Akashic records, there are also several techniques, with which one can begin to learn how to access them at will.

Since the spirit would not have any definite form, one may view it as becoming something like a interference pattern after death, its nature would be boundless, and in itself it would be capable of tapping into the entire frequency domain that it is connected to, thus realizing its infinite oneness, whilst still being able to perceive itself as a separate unit of consciousness. Truth be told, the holographic paradigm has adapted a rather spiritual approach towards the concept of matter and consciousness…As both can never be severed, but both perceive themselves to be separate, an internal conflict can easily be pre-predicted. Souls within the holomovement would naturally strive for the pathway towards the realization of the illusion, yet one has to consider the determined manner with which humans avoid suffering. The denial most human beings exhibit when confronted with a fact so utterly painful that it could destroy, what they consider to be, their identity. What they fail to acknowledge consciously is that each loss represents a gain, even if one is unable to recognize it at that point in time. Evolution and suffering often occur hand in hand with one another, as one gives birth to the other. However, technically the cessation of suffering in a holographic paradigm can only constitute the rising in frequency, which is fairly documented in various Vedic and Buddhist scriptures, yet those concepts eventually gives rise to a formless existence.

The non-local properties displayed by consciousness, space and time could only be genuinely explained by theory that all is one. This thesis would affect the concept of the soul, since the personal unconscious would cease to exist at that depth and only the collective unconscious would prevail, fragmented into variant parts of the whole. Although the fragmentation and singular evolution of each aspect of reality would gradually allow for the evolution of the whole to occur, the natural development of the fragments may represent the internal progression of the whole. As microcosm is macrocosm, the soul would not be bound by physicality and may be able to incarnate into Universes within the subatomic particle range, which may be scientifically too small for human beings to perceive at the present time.

Conclusion

In fact, the theory of the absolute may even be reversible. If we are but minor aspects of the absolutes dream, unconscious or perhaps essence, there may be the possibility that each individual possesses their own internal universe, which in turn would also be part of the whole. Like an unending chain of realities within the implicate order. As within infinity, nothing is impossible.

Since there cannot be a clear distinction between the external, physical reality and the inner, psychological and spiritual processes, one is merely a representation for the other and vice versa. It has been repeatedly documented that until a lesson is learnt in the physical existence, events will be continuously manifested in order for that lesson to be successfully mastered. Within certain realms of offender differentiation, it is commonly believed that the victim of a crime is often selected on an unconscious level of thought. Yet, the lesson faced does not necessarily involve physical violence, often it incorporates unwholesome character traits, as one can observe in the Adhidharma, a Buddhist manual towards wholesomeness. These include attitudes such as anxiety, distrust, laziness, anger, envy etc., basically all negative that derives from the nature of craving.

In my professional opinion, I believe that certain past lives hold a greater amount of influence over the individual than others, for instance, a life of an economical criminal. The habitual pattern of thoughts and deeds would require very much willpower to overcome, henceforth most souls eventually find themselves in a never-ending cyclical existence, which they have grown tired of within time. Approximately 25 percent of American citizens spend most of their life in incarceration, constantly in and out of prison since teenage years, continuously worrying about their own sense of freedom without the power to change their future decisions and often without suitable education nor knowledge of middle-class ethical conduct. In addition, loss and violence can also determine further unconscious behaviour or thought patterns. Several individuals that have undergone torture procedures in variant countries, at times display an unconscious anxiety, however due to the military training, I have often witnessed it appearing more as a form of paranoia, stemming from anxiety. In one particular case study, a young man presented himself to me, he was very socially oriented, charming, seemingly detached. It became known that he had experienced exceedingly physical punishment from both parental figures and frequently from peers during the first 21 years of his life, which on several occasions nearly cost him his life. Conversely, it was discovered that his last life was spent during the First World War as a soldier. Although he was one of the few that survived the ordeal, he recollected being in a very dark place mentally after returning and attempting to carry on with his life. He had begun a job as a tram ticket collector and for the time being he was moving on. However, one day, a group of feminists had boarded the tram that he was on, he approached the first female and enquired whether she could show him her ticket. She openly stated that she did not have a ticket, and began an argument. At first, he asked her to leave, yet the behaviour of both parties was escalating. Subsequently, he lifted himself up and kicked her off the tram by the back-door. He had no intention of her falling underneath the tram following behind his, she had died on impact. Afterwards, the conductor went home, he hung himself hours after, unable to live with the fact that he had murdered a female. It was later confirmed that his mother in this life had been the female boarding the tram, refusing to pay her ticket. When considering his childhood, the physical punishment may have been a way of overcompensating for any unconscious resentment that she may still harbour, although both had officially forgiven themselves and were able to discuss the experience within a relaxed atmosphere. Therefore, the individual unconscious of the soul may require a specific length of time to mend any existent negative resonances within the frequency patterns. Thus the soul, although contained inside the holomovement, can still suffer an immense amount of heartache because of the nature of the illusion, and for most, to describe the whole of existence as an illusion, often results in rather negative feedback due to the amount of attachment and value human beings place upon the phenomenal world. The design of the holographic universe would naturally encompass the most effective methods of triggering an evolution within the created illusionary mechanisms, unfortunately that may in actuality be the reason of all suffering, as the cause in itself is craving. However, as the truth unfolds, and the appearance of fragmentation ceases to exist, the soul of universe begins to gradually surface from the deepest depths of reality.

In reference to Sojourn The evolution of the soul, in comparison to the holographic paradigm, for the soul to be able to mature enough in order to be able to handle the truth about the reality that they inhabit wisely requires thousands of lifetimes. To become an old soul, understanding the illusion, but not allowing it to shatter that static peace within.
