The Process of Reincarnation

Here are some ideas I have about reincarnation. These are mostly my own ideas, based on what I understand about the concepts of reincarnation, consciousness, evolution, intelligence, spirit, and the soul...

The Process of Reincarnation

Being immortal souls, we incarnate on the physical plane again and again, and during each of these incarnations, we’re given the opportunity to develop ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. Although this process is complex and involves various levels that include both species-oriented development and soul-oriented development, I will attempt to explain this process in the simplest terms as it specifically relates to the soul. Further explanations for some of the concepts presented are given in the endnotes.

Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Aspects of Soul Development

The physical aspect of soul development is best understood by the encoding of our DNA, where those souls who are between incarnations can choose to adopt the mix of DNA between a couple who procreate by entering the womb during the earliest embryonic stage and supply its own soul-energy to sustain the embryo so that it can continue to develop. [1] Every soul carries with it a morphic blueprint that reflects the level of development it has achieved over all its previous incarnations, and this includes all of those traits and propensities that make up its underlying personality. [2]

The mental aspect of soul development is somewhat conditional to the genetic makeup of the DNA mix that has been adopted by the newly incarnating soul, but beyond that, this soul brings with it a sort of unconscious memory of all that it has ever learned or experienced in its previous incarnations. Although this memory isn’t easily available like we understand normal human memory to be, it’s encoded into the soul’s morphic field, and can be accessed at certain times and in certain ways. When we learn or experience the same things over a number of incarnations, they become more deeply engrained on our soul’s morphic field and thus easier for us to deal with in each incarnation. Therefore, a person who happens to become a musician in various lifetimes usually learns this talent more quickly with each incarnation and becomes more proficient with less effort. In the same way, a difficult experience that’s continually encountered in various lifetimes becomes easier to deal with in each new cycle. [3] [4]

This developing mental aspect provides greater awareness, understanding, intelligence, and intuition, as long as it’s given the opportunity to be exercised during each incarnation. This developing mental aspect is encoded into the morphic field of the soul and is a potential rather than a certainty, so that it requires some effort to re-establish in each incarnation, but with each incarnation it becomes easier to do so. On the other hand, a person who, in a particular incarnation, is mentally lazy and doesn’t do much to exercise the capacity for intelligence that they’re born with, never adds anything to this capacity. If this laziness continues over a number of successive incarnations, that potential becomes weaker and weaker with each incarnation, and re-establishing it begins to require more effort.

In considering all of this, it becomes obvious that intelligence plays an important part in the soul’s development. Intelligence offers greater ability to function during a lifetime, which allows for further development with greater choice in its direction. This is because intelligence involves awareness and understanding of more available choices in a given situation, which equates to greater free will.

The spiritual aspect of the soul develops through intelligence, since it takes intelligence to recognize and understand the purpose and utility of life and the journey through the many cycles of reincarnation, and spirit is nothing less than the desire to engage in this process. As intelligence grows, the spirit is encouraged further, and it becomes more desirous to continue in its journey.

Many people misunderstand what spirit is, and confuse it with the soul. Spirit might be considered either positive (good) or negative (evil), and although this is correct to some extent, these merely describe the soul’s degree of orientation towards its own development over that of other souls. [5] Spirit can be more accurately defined as the will and desire to experience life, and therefore to incarnate again and again. When we talk about good or evil spirits, we’re really talking about souls that have chosen to develop certain traits that either seek to create experiences that are helpful to other incarnated souls (good), or are debilitating to other souls (evil).

Spirit develops only through an effort of will and intent, where the desire to incarnate and have experiences sustains the soul as an independent entity. As we lose our spirit, we lose this desire. When we lose this desire, we do not seek to reincarnate. If we lose enough of our spirit, our soul’s energy weakens to the point that we lose the ability to incarnate at the current species-oriented level, and instead our soul’s morphic field eventually degrades to a previous (lesser) species-oriented state that requires less intelligence and the experiences of which are more compatible with that lower spiritual level. [6]

Spirit can become distracted from its own development and take on desires that serve the will of another. This is a dangerous situation, in that the spirit becomes entrapped through false understandings that lead it to serve that other soul as though doing so is the only way for it to develop. This is not to say that serving others in an altruistic fashion is wrong, but rather that serving another in the belief that this other is inherently greater than themselves and therefore deserving of such service leads to the eventual relinquishing of one’s own soul to that other. At some point, the energy of the serving soul is consumed by the other soul, and the serving soul no longer has any individuality. The other soul increases in soul-energy and becomes that much more vitalized.


[1] The act of procreation creates the stimulation of energies that attract non-incarnated souls. These energies attract by resonating with those non-incarnated souls that are best suited to the genetic blueprint of the procreating couple. This gives the non-incarnated souls some choice in incarnating, although the souls that resonate the greatest with the genetic blueprint will have priority over those that resonate less. This affects species-oriented development by assuring that the soul of a lower species will not likely adopt an incarnation into a higher species, and visa versa, although this isn’t ruled out entirely, and may explain certain defects such as mental retardation and physical deformations.

[2] The different genetic traits of both parents are chosen between by the newly incarnating soul according to how they will best reflect its own developmental blueprint. When the two DNA strands from each parent combine during the creation of the first embryonic cell, the energy of the newly incarnating soul naturally resonates best with the DNA combinations that reflect its own blueprint.

[3] Some past-life experiences that have been repeatedly experienced over various incarnations can have been so traumatizing that they stigmatize a person when they encounter a similar experience again in a new incarnation. These experiences can be very problematic and require special attention in order to learn how to get through them or avoid them.

[4] Although we may or may not have chosen the experiences we fall into during any particular lifetime, we become more adept at handling those experiences each time they occur.

[5] Negative orientation can arise when a soul recognizes its own greater development of the physical or mental aspect compared to others, or wrongly assumes so, and begins to take advantage of that for its own sake.

[6] Every soul progresses through stages of evolution, beginning with the simplest physical forms, and advancing through stages of development over many incarnations. Each higher stage has a more advanced morphic blueprint than the previous, and these morphic blueprints can be thought to be layered one on top of the other, so that within the morphic blueprint of any member of a species can be found the blueprints of all those previous species that it has been in its long journey through all of its incarnations.

From Alpha to Omega and Back Again; Free Will and Predetermination

By Anthony Forwood

Sarfatti’s Science

In the words of quantum physicist Dr. Jack Sarfatti, “We are the 3D hologram images projected back from the future from the 2D future horizon celestial sphere that surrounds us”. He talks the heavily technological jargon of quantum physicists that to the rest of us lay people sounds too arcane to interpret, but in reading it carefully, some understanding begins to come through. He mentions Alpha Points and Omega Points, wormholes, black holes, event horizons, and signal nonlocality. At least that much is understandable to someone who knows a little bit about quantum mechanics, and the rest of it seems to come through intuitively so that, for me at least, the whole of it makes sense.

In my own understanding of what he theorizes about our universe, the Omega Point, which can be understood as our farthest future, ripples back to the present and even beyond into the past all the way to the initial Alpha Point of the Big Bang singularity, continually filling out the order of space and time (and thought) and harmonizing them with itself, bringing ‘what was’ closer to ‘what will be’ by way of ‘what is’, while still allowing room for free will to operate within the ever-momentary balance of consciousness between the past and the future. Everything that we are aware of about physical reality, even the laws that govern it, are established first by the certainty of the future finality, and we see the reflections of this awareness as physical reality itself. The more we evolve in mind and become ever more consciously aware, the closer we come to that final result at the Omega Point, but at the same time, the more free will we have to exercise our choices.

This is interesting, because it describes a feedback loop, from past to future and future to past, allowing for guidance in the flow of creation, and this feedback loop reminds me of how the human brain has evolved in its design, so as to allow for checks and balances to be made at the highest levels of consciousness, in relation to what arises from the lowest levels of consciousness. This feedback loop in the brain gives us the ability to have greater free will and self-control, and to not be dependent on the more primitive emotional and instinctive responses of the lower levels of consciousness. In the same way, the future can reach back in time and make minor adjustments to the course of events so that less efficient thoughts, actions, and events become more aligned to a future outcome that will ultimately be.

In the brain, many millions of signals race through the neural paths of feedback loops every fraction of a second, each one providing a single bit of information that will be weighed against millions of other bits of information being carried through all the other neural paths in the loop. All these bits might comprise the information necessary to make a choice of action. Somewhere along this loop sits consciousness, able to exercise its free will and decide what information gets acted on and what doesn’t. This act of deciding might only constitute the firing of a single neuron, requiring a minimal of energy – enough for pure consciousness to easily muster up in only a few units of Planck time.

Sarfatti describes the brain as an interferogram, which is a sort of hologram. It acts on the interference of past and future to give us a sense of the present. For every wave of energy that flows out into the future, a simultaneous back-propagating wave flows in from the future, and where they cross is the juxtaposition of the present. Consciousness sits at the crossroads, acting as a navigator that guides itself towards the final fulfillment of its pre-chosen destiny.

Sarfatti also sees a cosmological connection between the duration of a single moment of consciousness to the age of the universe. This seems to suggest that at the very earliest stages of conscious evolution, a single moment of conscious awareness would be extremely short, while at the final stages, when the universe reaches its Omega Point, conscious awareness will encompass all of time and space – it will become omniscient.

Traveling Backwards in Time

According to current scientific theories, time travel might be possible by using wormholes to bend spacetime. No matter how you do it, however, there’s a seeming paradox that arises when you consider what would happen if you were to go back to a time before you were born and killed your own father, thus altering history and your own existence. It has been generally assumed that for this reason alone, time-travel isn’t possible. But that’s just an assumption. Perhaps there’s a way that time-travel can be possible without any chance of causing this paradox. Perhaps time-travel must begin with consciousness, and only later, when we’re more technologically (and spiritually) advanced, it can be followed with physical time-travel. It might be that it just isn’t possible any other way, and our level of spiritual maturity must first reach a certain point where we would never physically interfere in any significant way. Leaving strange footprints in the sand might be one thing, but eliminating yourself by killing your father before you were born would be quite another.

There’s a difference between subjective and objective interference. Subjective interference would include telepathic messages from the future, or perhaps even mysterious lights in the sky. Objective interference, on the other hand, would be any actions that physically alter anything in any way. If a mysterious light in the sky was seen, and it moved closer and showed itself to be a flying saucer, it would become more objectively real to us, and would be more objectively interfering in our reality. If it came and landed nearby, and its occupants got out and zapped someone dead with a ray gun, that would be objective interference. What’s important is how the interference affects the course of history. However, if time-travel is possible in both directions, then the universe is either predetermined or it splits into an infinite number of possible futures – the ‘many-worlds’ hypothesis. In a completely predetermined universe, interference wouldn’t make a difference, since if it happens, it was already written. In the many-worlds scenario, it can still pose a paradoxical problem in the timeline that the time-travelers came from – unless there are timelines where people and things can just suddenly never have existed.

It seems to me, at this point, that time-travel technology is probably going to start with machines that will mentally project a person into the past or future, rather than physically. This is akin to astral travel, but using technological assistance. Some of the secret government remote-viewing projects have been rumored to employ psychotronic technology to do just this, and the Montauk Project is said to have been involved in time-travel experiments. The time machine in those projects was called the Montauk Chair, which operated through the thoughts of the person sitting in it. Whether this is a real technology or not is up to the reader to decide. Whatever the case, it’s still described as just the consciousness or astral body of the time-traveler that travels, and not necessarily the physical body as well.

Considering all of this, there’s some plausibility that some UFOs are ‘time travelers’, and what’s seen by witnesses to these phenomena is an effect of the technology, or of the consciousness of the time-traveler, or a combination of the two.

The Probabilities of Changing the Past

This is where probabilities and potentials come into the picture. Scientists make a great deal out of probabilities – they couldn’t perform their quantum physics without probability statistics to determine where a particle might be at any given time or how many of these particles might be required to fill a chamber or make up the mass of an object. Probabilities rely on many individual components for a final result to be determined.

The same goes for events. The probability that some event might occur depends on the probabilities of all the events that will lead up to it. There might be any number of ways that the final event can be arrived at, through any number of series of intermediate events, and how it’s arrived at isn’t as important as the fact that eventually it will be. Just as long as certain factors are met that the final event requires and is ultimately defined by.

When we think about changing the past and the effect it can have on the future, we’re concerning ourselves with probabilities. Large or significant changes will usually cause a redirection of events that will result in a totally different future than otherwise. Small and insignificant changes will cause so little redirection of events that they’ll result in very little difference at all.

Something that has great potential to occur has a lot of probability bearing on it, and will require equally great changes to affect that potentiality and redirect it to some other outcome. In quantum physics, there’s a lot of leeway in quantifiable outcomes, meaning that small variations do not necessarily affect final results, and individual intermediate events are less important than the final outcome. Absolute quantities (measurements) are never able to be determined because not every intermediate event or quantity that makes up the final outcome can ever be certain, and yet, that final outcome can still be determined, and even ahead of time. There’s even room for particles that travel backwards in time (tachyons) to affect other particles that are traveling forward in time, and this usually has no great influence on a predetermined final outcome (although it would have some). The probabilities and potentials for that final outcome are greater than the effect the back-traveling particles might have on it.

If we consider this in relation to the possibility of traveling back in time and affecting the course of history, it becomes more understandable that we would have to affect it significantly, and even then, the probabilities may still be so highly in favor of a particular final outcome that we wouldn’t make a significant difference.

Probabilities and potentials are the key factors in whether the course of history might be changed by altering the past. Small interferences will make no difference if they don’t upset the weight of probabilities too drastically. This means that certain outcomes are so probable that they will not be easily affected by small intermediate events. Just as in a quantum system, internal readjustments are continually made that even out the perturbations of random interferences so that equilibrium is maintained and the system holds together. In the same way, the course of history (whether a personal history or a world history) will essentially follow a similar response to interferences so that the final outcome (the same predetermined future) is maintained.

There can be many routes to a single destination, and each route can offer different experiences and may even take a more roundabout way that takes longer and requires more effort, but in the end, they all reach the same final point. Even though the end goal might ultimately be predetermined, how one gets there is open to many different possibilities, and free will is still unhindered by absolutes.

Frequencies of Consciousness and Matter

Excerpted from The Scientific Illusion and the Relativity of Beliefs
By Anthony Forwood
Copyright (c) 2011 All rights reserved.

Consciousness and matter exist at opposite extremes of the electromagnetic spectrum. Matter, in its smallest constituent units, takes its most elementary forms through the highest frequency bandwidths that electromagnetic energy is known to take (approximately 1024 Hz). Consciousness, on the other hand, predominates the lowest frequency bandwidths of EM energy (0+ Hz). Between these two extremes lies the rest of perceptible reality. Certain bandwidths of this energy's full spectrum are made perceptible to us through our different sensory channels. Visual sight allows us to read information that is available in the spectrum of light, which is between about 1014 and 1015 Hz. Sound operates at a lower bandwidth.

That consciousness lies at the lowest point of the energy spectrum is interesting to note, because it places consciousness at the initiation point of any energetic action. 

Research using EEG machines to monitor brainwave activity has revealed that consciousness arises from the 'sleep' of no energetic movement, into progressively higher levels of conscious activity. As we have seen, four basic levels of consciousness have been determined to exist, each with progressively advanced characteristics that develop from the characteristics of lower levels. These levels are designated as the delta, theta, alpha, and beta states, and progress up from comatose sleep, to the dream state of normal sleep, to a relaxed waking state, to a focused state of awareness and concentration. 

It should be pointed out that ever more concentrated energy states exist beyond the upper limits of human consciousness, and something has to drive it in its organized patterns. The Big Bang theory cannot properly account for the actual origin of physical reality, and describes it as a singular point of extremely concentrated energy that suddenly bursts forth into time and space as we know them, with all the physical laws coming about in such a way that has culminated into the universe as we know it. Conscious development can be described in a similar way, with the same aspects arising in a certain order of increasing complexity. The only difference between the two is that one is described in physical terms and the other in mental terms. However, all aspects of the physical have their mental counterparts, but mental aspects do not necessarily have physical aspects (i.e. what we call subjective reality). This again suggests that consciousness is more fundamental to reality than matter.

The upper levels of consciousness - characterized by greater mental awareness and concentration - and the higher energy states of matter suggest that in a consciousness-based reality, particulate matter requires extremely powerful concentrations of energy to arise in order for it to form. However, once a balanced state of energetic motion is found, the energy needed to sustain it is minimal. It should be noted that this is very similar to the way in which automatic responses set in and become subconsciously directed after only a few repetitions of a consciously directed act.

Information is Mass

If energy is equated to information just as it is equated to mass, then information and mass must also be equated with each other. This means that mass arises through the same process that we find to be the cause of information, which is through meaningfully ordered associations. Therefore, mass arises through the meaningfully ordered associations between the constituent parts.

Photons and certain other fundamental particles have no mass, but through their interactions with each other, mass arises. When a number of massless particles come together and interact, information is created, as is mass. When they fall into an equilibrious state, where actions are repeated as the particles vibrate together in their ordered manner, the information created (the mass) is stable and maintains its expression as a form, such as a proton, an atom, a molecule, or whatever.

We can consider this in terms of numbers and the mathematical operations that can be performed on them. For instance, the base unit of 1 can be equated with zero mass, and regarded as expressing no information because it is no different than any other base unit. There is also the counterpart of –1’s in the universe that represent antimatter, but in the universe we experience, these do not affect our normal observations, and so do not need to be figured into our discussion. We can conceive of the universe filled with individual 1’s flying around (as well as –1’s). When the 1’s come together in certain ways, they add up to larger units, such as 2’s , 3’s, and 4’s. These conglomerations, while they are stabilized by their unitary order, express information. Thus, units of simple 3’s and 4’s that hold together offer a means for proto-matter to become established, bearing the slightest amount of mass/information. These simple units of proto-matter are stable to a degree, but not stable enough for them to hold together well, and they can easily fall apart again with the slightest disturbance. However, certain of these units, like certain number values, fit nicely together in various ways to build into still larger ‘prime’ units, which are equivalent to the prime numbers in our numerical system. A number such as 24 is built from the components of it’s prime set (2,2,3,3), and so it’s material equivalent can arise whenever the proto-matter of two 2’s and two 3’s come together and stabilize. This is more likely to happen than for a number such as 4620 (2,2,3,5,7,11), because the probability of the units of it’s prime set coming together and stabilizing are not as great. The higher the number we are dealing with, the less chance that it will form out of its necessary component units. Thus, we see a greater amount of the baser elements of matter, such as hydrogen and helium, than we do those rare elements at the high end of the periodic table.

Of course, the smallest amounts of mass that we understand to exist are comprised of units that are smaller than anything we might observe with our measuring devices, and we therefore only understand mass/energy values down to a certain minimum that does not reveal the smaller values of proto-matter. It is only when this proto-matter comes together to form larger stabilized units that we are able to recognize it as a substance (energy/mass/information).

The base units that we understand to be the minimum values of energy (quanta) are themselves divisible even further, but we do not recognize those smaller divisions because we think in terms of the scale of observation that we are currently at, which is predominated by the smallest units we can recognize and understand. But these quantum units we recognize may just be composites of the more primal units of proto-matter which is itself beyond our level of recognition. The information expressed by proto-matter is taken for granted as the underlying ground in which the universe plays out. This proto-matter is so subtle in its formations that it can only be recognized as fundamental aspects such as time and space, which are qualities that are reflected as information but have no apparent substance. Scientists have for the most part taken such fundamental qualities of our universe for granted, and are only now attempting to consider how they might be described as arising in their own right. However, information, mass, or energy can only be recognized when it stands out from this background and can be measured against it. There is nothing that can be recognized without it being defined, at least in part, in terms of spatial and temporal relationships, and anything that might exist in all places and at all times is beyond observability. Thus, although the value of 1 is the basis for all greater whole numbers, as long as we can only recognize multiples of 2’s or 3’s or even 12’s, we will never recognize anything of a subtler nature.

Think of this in terms of ice in relation to water. An ice cube in a glass of water is of the same substance as the water it floats in, except for the ordered configuration of its molecular parts in relation to the baser configuration of the ordinary water that it is immersed in. We recognize the cube as separate and different from the fluid water only because we gain greater information from it than we do its water equivalent.

Experiments involving entangled particles have shown that the quantum states of all the particles within a system of coordinates are superposed so that it is not the property of a single particle that carries information, but rather the state of the system as a whole.1 This can be understood in a numerical sense with the simple addition of numbers that result in a value that is not carried in any of the numbers that were added together. By combining or ‘entangling’ the numbers in this way, we are emulating a system of coordinates with superposed quanta, where the quanta are the grouped 1’s that make up each number being added. Each of these composite numbers is a system in its own right.

Mass is reflected in the complexity of a system in terms of its constituent minimal parts. The greater the number of minimal parts, the greater the mass will be. These parts might be loosely configured and have a high volume, or they might be tightly configured and have a low volume. Information is contained in the order of these configurations, and the more complexity there is in that order, the more information can be derived from it.

Almost all of the mass of an atom is contained in its nucleus, where there is the most complexity. This complexity has become a new source of energy, and promises to be the source for much information as we come to understand the subatomic world more thoroughly.

Five Revelations in Quantum Physics

The first revelation of quantum mechanics that we will consider is that below the level of quantum particles, at a microcosmic scale of time and space that is less than that of Planck time (10-43 seconds) and Planck length (10-33 centimeters), the concepts of time and space are no longer in effect. At this sub-quantum level of reality, the energy that emerges into the simplest material forms of quanta is itself just a jittery, frothing sea of uncertainty. The dualistic opposites of our normal world, such as left and right, up and down, near and far, here and there, inside and outside, before and after, etc., do not apply. There is no sense of causality or order as we understand them on the larger scales we are more familiar with. Quantum particles pop in and out of existence in a seemingly chaotic and unpredictable manner, sometimes emerging long enough to interweave themselves into configurations that will exist for a while, but which eventually disintegrate back into a haze of uncertainty again.

Further, this frothing quantum sea of energy exists at every conceivable point in space, filling even the microcosmically huge distances between an atom’s tiny nucleus and the electrons that inhabit ‘orbits’ at its outer perimeters. This sub-quantum energy exists everywhere throughout the conceivable limits of space, being present at all points throughout. It is this underlying energetic field from which matter emerges in its physical, particulate form.

This underlying sea of ever emerging and vanishing quanta is commonly referred to as the quantum field or zero-point field. In this text, we will occasionally need to make the distinction between the underlying energy itself and the quantum units that arise out of it to form particles. For this reason the term ‘sub-quantum’ will be used to refer to the underlying energy itself, rather than to the quanta that form out of it. This is simply to help the reader clearly understand what is being discussed.

The second revelation of quantum mechanics is based on what is known as Bell’s Theorem, and is commonly referred to as quantum entanglement. This revelation dictates that two or more particles, once they become correlated through an interaction, will thereafter remain correlated no matter how far apart they become from one another in space. They seem to be integrated in a way that makes the spontaneous and immediate exchange of information between them possible, even if they happen to be at opposite ends of the universe. A change in any of the properties of one entangled particle will automatically and instantaneously cause a change in the corresponding property of all those particles entangled with it. Instantaneous long distance connections between physical objects are therefore not limited by spatial distance at the quantum level, and the interactions of subatomic particles that are continually occurring means that things are much more connected than they might seem at the human level of everyday perception.

The third important revelation gained from the study of quantum mechanics is that of wave/particle duality, which means that every quantum of energy, such as a photon or electron, has both a wave aspect and a particle aspect, rather than just a particle aspect (as was once commonly thought). Although scientists had always assumed matter to be purely particulate in form, the study of quantum mechanics eventually revealed that there is also a wave aspect to matter, and quanta can exist in one or the other state. Further research has revealed that the wave aspect of matter exists even when its corresponding particle aspect does not. A quantum of energy therefore exists primarily as a wave, but in certain instances – most specifically when it is being observed or measured – a quantum wave ‘collapse’ occurs, and its particulate form springs into existence. In its wave state, it can be considered as existing only as a potential particle, and as such has no definite location, being in all possible spatial locations at once. This potential, all-encompassing yet undefined location is referred to as the particle’s superposition. In quantum physics, this wave state is referred to as a probability wave, because until it temporarily collapses into a distinct and ‘solid’ particle, the location in which that particle will be located can only be defined as a statistical probability. It cannot be predicted with absolute certainty.

This is an effect of what is known in quantum physics as the Uncertainty Principle. This principle is based on the fact that predictions about the outcomes of quantum effects can only be statistical in nature and therefore cannot be determined with any great precision – these outcomes can only ever be determined as probabilities, not absolutes. Although all possible spatial locations are covered by the wave in its superposition, certain locations will have a higher degree of probability than others of being the eventual physical location. Some of these probabilities will be very high and some of these probabilities will be very low.

From the standpoint of the mathematical formulas that physicists rely upon to plot out the structure of reality, the determination of where a particle will finally be located rests on the complex interactions of so many variables that it can only ever be calculated to a certain degree of probability. However, we do not have to worry about mathematical formulas in order to understand that the underlying wave state of a quantum of energy is always permeating every point of space to one degree or another. When it collapses into its particle state, that quantum of energy can be thought to instantaneously condense into a single location to become a particle. The energy used by the particle, however, is essentially still connected to the entirety of its underlying sub-quantum source through its wave state. This is important in understanding the mechanics of quantum entanglement between particles, as outlined above.

The fourth revelation that quantum mechanics has given us can be referred to as the observer effect, which has been indisputably shown that the observer (or the act of taking a measurement) has a definite effect on what is observed. This is tied in with wave/particle duality, in that the observer causes the wave to collapse into a particle at one of its probable locations. This will obviously be of extreme importance in formulating a more accurate scientific model of reality than we currently have, because not only does it indicate that things are only definite when their observation forces the probabilities into one specific outcome, but it also indicates the more profound realization that mind affects matter. This revelation will likewise be important to keep in mind as our discussion progresses throughout this book.

The fifth and final revelation of quantum mechanics that is of importance to our discussion is that during the observation or measurement of a quantum particle, it is impossible to acquire information on more than one of its properties during that observation. This is another effect of the Uncertainty Principle. An example of this revelation is that it is not possible to measure both the momentum and the location of a particle with any degree of accuracy. It is possible to measure any one property, but to do so causes an immediate change in that particle, making all other properties uncertain. If we were to measure its momentum, for instance, this causes a change in its location in space.

All five of these revelations, which have been established through empirically controlled laboratory experiments, have each been accepted by the scientific community as indisputable characteristics of physical reality at the quantum scale of matter. Between these revelations, we can see that beneath the perceptible surface of things, the deeper levels of physical reality are very much different from what we could ever have expected them to be.

The rules of order that we understand and have relied on to predict and describe the physical events that occur at the perceptible scales of our everyday world do not apply at the quantum level, and a separate framework of understanding has slowly and tediously been forming, which scientists hope will eventually provide a complete and accurate description of events at this microcosmic scale. However, the very fact that two separate rules of order are required to define and describe these different scales of physicality suggests that the scientific framework is not whole, but is rather a patchwork of understandings that do not mesh as neatly as they should.

We should therefore give further consideration to these quantum revelations in order to better comprehend their significance in our ability to discern a deeper reality. A more encompassing description of reality will become further clarified as we discuss other relevant subjects in later chapters, but for the time being it is important to consider these five revelations further in order to gain a firm understanding of how things appear to be at the quantum level.

The Greater Consciousness and Reality

The greater consciousness is splintered into innumerable faucets of being through which it is free to explore and express its own potential. These faucets are continually and simultaneously forming as expressions of mind, building upon themselves into creations of greater and greater organized complexity for greater and greater forms of experience.

The greater consciousness is the creative center from which all of reality arises. From this center has emerged the design of an ordered understanding.

There are many levels and variations of conscious beingness. For instance, human consciousness is a particular variation of being that is distinct from the consciousness of an animal. Similarly, different species of animals have variations in their states of consciousness. Plants are another variation of conscious being, much less complex than humans or animals. In turn, cellular, molecular, atomic, and subatomic structures are all variations of conscious being. Aside from these, there are other levels as well, which include planets, star systems, galaxies, universes, etc. Each variation exists at a certain level of consciousness, corresponding to its evolutionary complexity. Subatomic particles exist at a very low level, while atoms, molecules, cells, plants, insects and animals all exist at respectively higher levels. Consciousness is in its simplest form at the lowest level, and in its most complex at the highest level.

Each of these variations of consciousness stems from the same greater consciousness, of which they are an inherently part. They are all creative expressions of the greater consciousness and they have become manifest into being through the directed energy of mind. Remember that quantum physics has shown that the physical properties of matter are compelled to arise through the act of observation, and in this act, we are applying consciousness to our surroundings. The consciousness within the atoms and stars that gives them their life force and allows them to collapse into physical existence before us is initiated by our attention to them.

The simplest constructs of matter are established through the most elementary rules of order required. Once a construct has been created through the establishment of its expressive pattern, it is able to sustain itself without any further conscious attention applied, being carried by the automatic responses of the deeper subconscious. In this way, the rhythmic cycles that underlie all physical processes are established and a continuous interweaving of patterns is given expression in a multitude of forms.

Deeper Consciousness

Let us now consider the connective aspect of consciousness further. We only know and understand consciousness from within the limits of our own individual and isolated human experience of it. We perceive and think of our individual minds as completely separate and isolated from each other because we are unable to share our inner worlds in the same way that we share the outer world. And yet, in spite of this, we are still somehow able to find a common understanding between us regarding purely subjective, non-physical things, such as beauty and confusion. Although we all know what these things are, these understandings are not based on any clearly established rules of order and therefore cannot be defined in any quantitative terms. We do not always define these subjective things in quite the same way, so that where one person might see beauty, another might not. Nevertheless, we all have some conceptual formulation of what beauty is, or confusion, or whatever else, and these understandings seem to be mutual, at least in a general sense.

Where does this mutual understanding between us come from? How can we know that we understand these things in the same relative way? To understand this, we should realize that although we may appear to be separate and isolated individuals, both mentally and physically, this is not really the case at all.

In a physical sense, we are interconnected with our environment and constantly exchanging energy with it. At the level of normal awareness, we do this whenever we breathe, as well as when we pass food and liquids through our systems for nourishment. If we consider our physical bodies at the subatomic level, we see that we are actually indistinguishable and inseparable from our environment. At this microcosmic level, lines of distinction break down and form loses substance. Absolutes disappear and only probabilities are certain. Matter itself disappears into pure energetic expression. There is no definite point where the material that makes up our bodies stops and the environment begins. The molecules that make up the cells of our bodies are constantly breaking down and losing atoms to the environment while other cells are concurrently forming to replace them, being replenished by atoms from our environment. In fact, all of the individual atoms that make up our bodies will be replaced over time, so that the body we have at twenty will be an entirely different one by the time we are thirty.

In regards to our mental separation from one another, we only appear to be completely isolated from each other in our thoughts and feelings. We can only share these experiences indirectly by describing them through speech, writing, etc., but these can never communicate our inner experiences precisely. We seem to be somewhat trapped within our own private worlds where our thoughts and perceptions are unlike anyone else’s, and unable to be directly shared with anyone else. But there is a connective link between our individual minds that is sometimes experienced in certain situations and to such a degree that when we do experience it we are taken aback, and can only conclude that something outside of our common understanding has taken place. These are moments where we feel that something paranormal has occurred, and these moments, although still quite rare, are common enough that we can give them credence as evidence that there is a mental connectivity between us.

The more common subjective experiences of our separate minds seem to be quite similar in many ways, and it is through these similarities that we find a certain degree of mental connectivity between us. In spite of this, however, we do not appear to be anything other than individual instances of consciousness taking part in a common physical reality. This separation between us is an illusion, however, and at a very deep level of consciousness we are connected to each other and everything else. In fact, consciousness exists in every physical form that we perceive, every sound that we hear, every scent that we smell, every flavor that we taste, and every touch that we feel. It is consciousness that causes matter to appear to manifest as physical reality before us. This all-permeating consciousness is even reflected in the very order and stability that allows our universe to continue to exist. All life forms and all inanimate things are essentially the faucets of one great, unified consciousness, existing as minor reflections of its greater being.

This greater consciousness encompasses all consciousness within this sphere of reality that we all share together. It is in all things, giving them sustenance through its energy of thought. Humans and all other ‘conscious’ beings, which include all plants and animals, as well as all atoms, molecules, rocks, clouds, stars, etc., arise as concentrations of the multi-focused, simultaneously occurring attentions of this greater consciousness. In the mechanistic terms of the physical sciences, what we call energy and equate with mass is also equated with conscious energy. The greater consciousness is therefore the sum of all the energy in our universe. But it is more than just this, because it also encompasses the subjective side of reality as well.

We experience both an outer and an inner reality, one objective and quantifiable, the other subjective and non-quantifiable. The outer reality, as we have already described, arises as a reflection of our collective thoughts and beliefs, and actually emerges from the subconscious level of mind, although this does not appear so to our senses. It is through our subconscious that we connect to each other and all the rest of reality, and this can be evidenced by the fact that telepathic reception and clairvoyant impressions often occur when the conscious mind is relaxed, allowing the subconscious to predominate mental activity.

The living human mind ranges between full waking consciousness and deep comatose sleep. When we are fully alive and experiencing our physical world with a high degree of connective interaction with it, we are at the peak level of our consciousness. When we sleep, we sink out of this conscious awareness and our brain processes that involve normal reasoning and logical thinking – the underlying framework that we use to interpret our sensory input – are more or less shut off, allowing a more direct connection to the subconscious. This is where the content of our dreams originate. The subconscious mind is also the channel for psychic impressions or sources of knowledge that are not always available otherwise. Much of what we experience as random mental impressions when we are drifting off to sleep, and the wisps of dreams that we recall upon waking, are impressions created by the subconscious. Although they may seem quite illogical and meaningless to our conscious minds, they often reflect a level of reality that seems to relate to deeper understandings and issues than our normal waking lives are usually concerned with, or should be concerned with.

Upon the death of our physical bodies, we slip deeper and deeper into this subconscious state, first letting go of our conscious connection to the outside world, then to the inner world, before fading out completely. Where do we go?

Many are led to believe that when our bodies die, so does our consciousness. This belief is caused by too much faith in the mechanistic view of science and little faith in a higher purpose. Other belief systems are not so limiting in the extent that they give meaning to consciousness, life, and reality itself. Until scientific thought replaced religious doctrine, our part in the world was at least important in the scheme of things, if not central to its meaning and purpose. Science has avoided any consideration of reality that would involve any such meaning and purpose to life forms other than to fulfill a part of a continuing process of physical existence for its own sake. We are supposed to believe that we only live for the sake of existing and to do our part to keep the cycle going, and that’s it. According to the scientific framework, life itself arose by purely random and unplanned physical events, and consciousness is said to be nothing more than an effect that arises when matter reaches a certain level of complexity. But is this to be believed?

The problem with this explanation is that it does not have any supporting evidence at all that would show that life arises out of random physical events, or that consciousness arises due to complexity. These are baseless claims that can serve no purpose other than to devalue life in general. Since science is self-limiting and cannot deal with anything other than external, objective events that occur in a physical sense, it is inadequate to rely on it if we are to consider anything beyond the physical domain. Science can offer the mechanics, but never the meaning.

Meaning is the subjective element of an experience or event. It is not inherent in the event itself, but only arises through the experiencer of that event. It arises from consciousness, not material substance. Meaning, being subjective, can be different for each of us, but there are those things that have the same meaning for all of us. We share a sense of reality based on meaning, expressed through the order that underlies that reality. The order itself is not physical, nor does it provide any meaning in itself. The meaning of this order, and of everything that arises through it as our reality, comes from a source that lies outside of normal awareness. This source had to exist before any sort of order could begin to form the physical world, and such order, being purely subjective in nature, was a reflection of mind.

We can see that from a scientific perspective, meaning is limited to describing physical processes, based on the laws of physics. This type of meaning, however, falls short of describing or defining anything beyond those laws. Science does not even attempt to address the question of the meaning of reality. It explains the history of the universe in terms of physical processes, but in doing so, describes it as originating from a state that lies outside of the physical laws that govern it. This prior state is described as a timeless, dimensionless point of nothingness, a ‘singularity’. From this conceptual singularity, science can describe the unfolding of energetic forces and the complex development of physical evolution that has culminated into today’s planets, stars, and galaxies. They claim that the universe continues to expand from an initial Big Bang event because distant galaxies are seen to be moving away from us. However, no explanation can be given regarding what space is expanding into, and we are left with a similar problem as we have with explaining a singularity.

No meaning or purpose can be ascertained to explain the universe’s existence as long as it is considered on its own. To derive any meaning, it must be understood beyond just itself, as part of or in relation to something greater. Science cannot explain where the originating singularity came from, nor can it explain what the universe is supposed to be expanding into.

These two conceptual extremes that mark the limits of physical reality reflect the essence of mind or consciousness as we are describing it here. The directive force behind the birth of our universe from a singularity is equivalent to pure focused consciousness. The background for this emerging reality is the subconscious mind that reflects back to us the expressions of conscious thought. The greater consciousness encompasses all of this, existing within all material manifestations, expressing itself through the directed energy of thought. The greater consciousness can direct its energies into separate creative faucets, which in some cases arise as living forms. These separate conscious beings are only digressions of the ultimate beingness of this greater consciousness. We appear to be separate instances of consciousness, but this is an illusion that is necessary to the type of experience that we are involved in. At a deeper level of mind, humans are connected together by the meaning that underlies this type of experience. We have accepted this meaning in terms of an understanding that was established prior to our involvement in this reality we share, before we came to be born into it. Each of us, deep within the core of our being, is part of the same conscious force that is involved in sustaining the order and structure of this reality.

To understand our connection to each other and to everything else through the depths of our subconscious minds, and to more easily conceptualize the greater consciousness that underlies manifest reality, we should give further consideration to the subconscious mind and its place in our experiences.

Qualities and Quantities

Quality must come before quantity. If we have a number of items, we have a specific quantity. What distinguishes them as a quantity, however? There must be certain qualitative factors that are present already that define them as individual items. These qualities are inherent in each separate item within a quantity of items, and each item is categorized as one unit as long as it contains those defining qualifiers. Each item, of course, may have other unique qualities about it that the other items don’t have, but within the qualifying categories, they can all still be considered as ‘similar/separate’ quantities.

For there to be something, anything at all, there must be a distinction between what it is and what it is not. This distinction is initially a purely qualitative one, rather than a quantitative one, and only gains quantitative form when it becomes measurable within a predetermined rule of order. To measure something we must have something to measure it against, in order to find the similarities and differences that distinguish it from anything else. The more qualities we can look for and differentiate between in something, the more defined it becomes. When certain combinations of qualitative definitions are repeatedly found, we come to conceive of them as similar units, and this allows quantitative understanding to arise. This understanding encourages us to perceive much of reality in objective form, as absolutes that we all accept and understand in specific terms. In this way, the world that arises around us is perceived to consist of physical structure that meets our shared sense of order, drawn out of subjective, qualitative concepts that have been firmly established at a deep level of consciousness from where it can manifest into those objective forms.

Consider for a moment how matter arises to our senses. At a fundamental level, matter is described as nothing more than atomic particles, and these particles are nothing more than quantities of energy (quanta) moving at such a high rate of vibration or oscillation that they seem to have solid, particulate form. Each individual vibration or oscillation of that energy has the same qualitative factors as any other of its vibrations or oscillations. In this way, each vibrational movement can itself be described as a separate quantitative unit that, through many repetitions that have the same qualities, becomes discernable, or at least describable, as a quantity – it becomes a particle. This objective quantity that is the particle, however, arises only because we have an already established qualitative order with which to understand it in quantitative terms. The smallest allowable unit of energy is defined by certain parameters, and these parameters are nothing more than qualities that scientists have discerned in them and rely on to distinguish them as separate units. But a minimal unit of energy, a quantum, has no real quantitative substance except for these qualitative distinctions. The energy is nothing in itself without the qualifying parameters, and these qualifiers are nothing more than qualities.

Connected Consciousness and the Connected Reality

Carl Jung coined the term ‘collective unconscious’ to describe the concept that all minds are connected and share a common ground at a level below conscious awareness. The concept itself was not actually his own, but comes from ancient Eastern belief systems, of which Jung was quite familiar. However, when he introduced the concept into Western thought, it made a lot of sense and the concept has caught on.

The idea of a deeply rooted connectedness between all minds is not merely a presumptuous desire that we might hold, but is in fact supported by an ever-increasing amount of evidence that cannot otherwise be explained in conventional terms. For instance, this concept of a connection between conscious minds is supported by certain psychic phenomena that have been continually evidenced all through our historic past. The scientific establishment, however, has always discredited such evidence of psychism (for possible reasons that we will get into later), and this has left the concept of a collective unconscious as appearing to be nothing more than a conceptual tool for psychiatrists and psychologists to use in dealing with their patients.

Recently, however, the concept of a collective connectivity, and psychism with it, has gained further evidence to support its reality through research into quantum mechanics. As we saw in the first chapter, it has been revealed in experiments that subatomic particles such as electrons and photons can instantaneously share information over great distances without any sort of physical connection existing between them. These findings break the known laws of classical physics, but replication of the experiments verify that the findings are nonetheless correct. This discovery caused Einstein a great deal of frustration, and he was never able to fully come to terms with it, struggling for the remainder of his life to understand how it could be possible within the parameters of physical laws as he understood them.

The problem for Einstein was caused by his belief that it was impossible for objects to interact at a distance without some sort of connecting link between them, and certainly not at speeds faster than light. Even radio and television transmissions link the broadcasting station to a receiving unit through electromagnetic waves, which are limited to traveling at the speed of light. According to the scientific establishment, there is nothing in the known universe that can interact with a distant object instantaneously and without some sort of an intermediary link (they conveniently ignore the fact that gravity causes action at a distance, and that an ether is needed to explain gravity using Einstein’s rubber sheet analogy). This distant connectivity, or entanglement, is considered an anomaly, and physicists are still scratching their heads as they try to find an explanation for it in purely mechanical terms. To think that our minds might also be connected in this way is just too much for them to accept.

But why should they be so alarmed? Gravity apparently has an aspect of nonlocality about it, and it defies the speed of light in that its effects are instantaneous. Although Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity was accepted as an explanation of gravitation that supposedly eliminated any problems of nonlocality, we have seen that this is false.

So, for the time being at least, let us accept that the current scientific framework is too limiting to describe reality beyond a certain point, being based on principles that are designed to only consider the objective, quantifiable aspects of that reality. Any understanding beyond that must involve a broader consideration that also encompasses the immeasurable, which leads us to the subjective, nonphysical abstractions that exist purely in the mental realm of consciousness.

Earlier we described reality in terms of the subconscious reflecting our collective thoughts back to us, and these affecting our perceptions. These perceptions are structured and understood through our collectively accepted sense of order. We think of this order as being absolute and having always existed, being the fundamental principles that hold the physical world together and allow it to exist. In the mechanistic understanding, these principles, which we know as the various laws of physics, are considered the most fundamental absolutes of physical reality. Through them, all physical expressions of matter occur.

Yet, none of these principles are themselves physical. They are purely subjective concepts, being structured out of qualities rather than quantities. From them, quantities can be derived, but they are not themselves comprised of any quantity. What caused these qualities to arise, and what assures their uniformity throughout the physical universe? The scientific framework cannot provide answers to these questions, and so they ignore them altogether. But they are significant questions, because they lead us to realize that something deeper than physical substance, even in its finest forms, must underlie reality.

The subjective nature of reality precedes its objective form. Subjectivity gives meaning, and meaning is order. Thus, the collective agreement to establish a common sense of order was meaningful in that it allowed processes to be reflected within it that, once uniformly accepted as absolutes, became actualized as Nature. This order provided a conceptual template in which ideas could begin to be expressed. Not only could they be expressed, however, but they could also be replicated and multiplied, giving rise to quantitative aspects of reality.

It might be helpful at this point to remember that all life forms – including ourselves – evolved from the same single point of origin, the same first conscious life force, and through replication and the slow process of evolution, we each carry within us the same underlying sense of order that we use to understand our reality. We are deeply habituated to thinking in terms of separateness, both between each other as well as between ourselves and the external world, and so we do not realize that this sense of order is actually within us rather than external to us. We see this order reflected in objective form, but it is nevertheless essentially subjective, and is therefore a qualitative aspect of mind.

In order to understand this better, we should consider the relationship between quality and quantity a little further.

A Problem with the Relativity of Time

According to Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity, time slows down more and more as a moving object reaches closer to the speed of light, at which point time stops completely, mass becomes infinite, and space contracts to a point in the direction of travel (all points come closer together). Following this reasoning, it has been popularly suggested, and even supposedly proven, that if a spaceship were to leave Earth and travel out into space at near-light-speeds for a period of time before returning again, there would be a measurable time discrepancy between the crew on the ship and the people on Earth, with the crew having aged more slowly than the people on Earth. We will refer to this as scenario A, where we have only two points of reference to contend with – that of Earth and that of the spaceship. This scenario is often used in explaining the strangeness of spacetime as it is understood within the Einsteinian framework.1

There is a definite problem with this understanding, however, and this problem can be seen more clearly when we reconsider the basic premise to the theory of special relativity, which is that all things – including time – are relative. This means that the time differentiation between the spaceship and Earth must necessarily affect both the crew on the ship and the people on Earth equally, rather than just the crew, as is commonly understood, and which is reflected in our description of scenario A. What scientists seem to have completely ignored is that if we can say that the spaceship is moving away from Earth at near-light-speed, then we can just as well say that Earth is moving away from the spaceship at the same speed. What is moving is relative to the orientation of the observer, and so the observers on the spaceship and on Earth must be equally affected. In other words, if the crew on the spaceship is aging more slowly relative to the people on Earth, then the people on Earth must necessarily be aging more slowly relative to the crew on the ship. The effect will be relative, rather than applicable from only one of the two reference points.

We can see the problem even more clearly if we consider this expected time differentiation in a slightly more complex scenario involving three relative points in space, rather than just two.

In scenario B, imagine yourself to always be situated at a point that is exactly halfway between the Earth and the spaceship as the spaceship travels away from Earth at near-light-speed. You are moving in the same direction away from Earth in your own spaceship at half the speed of the first spaceship, and so both the Earth and the first spaceship are effectively moving away from you in opposite directions at equal speeds. Eventually, the first spaceship turns around and begins to head back to Earth, and you also head back at the same moment, continuing to remain at an equal distance between the Earth and the spaceship until all of you are safely together again.

In this scenario, who is getting older? For who does time slow down, and by how much? If we consider the outcome of this scenario from the standpoint of each reference point, we will begin to see the problem with the commonly accepted understanding of time displacement.

1) From the standpoint of the people on Earth, the crew on the first spaceship ages slowest, while you age faster than them but slower than the people on Earth, who have aged normally.

2) From the standpoint of the crew on the first spaceship, the people on Earth age slowest, while you age faster than them but slower than the crew of the first ship, who continue to age normally.

3) From your standpoint on the second spaceship, both the people on Earth and the crew on the first spaceship age equally slowly while you age normally.

Seen in this context, the people of Earth would see themselves as having aged the most and the crew of the first ship having aged the least. The crew on the first spaceship, however, would see themselves as having aged the most and the people of Earth the least. Both of these groups would agree, however, on how little you have aged. You, in turn, would see yourself as having aged the most and the people on Earth and the crew of the first ship having aged equally less. Confusing? Yes. Likely? No.

This shows that the common understanding of time displacement is obviously in error. In scenario A, the crew of a spaceship that is traveling at near-light-speed will not age more slowly than the people back on Earth. Both will age at the same rate no matter at what speeds the spaceship travels or for however long. Scenario B reveals this fact, and further consideration of the concept of relativity will reflect it as well.

The common understanding of time displacement is at fault because it does not take into account the fact that the movement between a spaceship and Earth (or any other two reference points) can be viewed from the opposite perspective (as in scenario A), with the Earth speeding away from the spaceship, rather than the other way around. In this view, the people on Earth can be said to be traveling at near-light-speed relative to the crew on the spaceship, and can thus be said to be aging more slowly than the crew.

The common understanding appears to be accurate only because we tend to think that Earth is somehow at a stationary point in space, and forget that it is actually moving at great speeds as it orbits the Sun, which in turn orbits the galaxy, which is itself cycling through its own course in space. In effect, nothing is grounded to a central or fixed point where time can be said to be ‘regular’, and by which all other points of time can be measured.

The experiments that have been used to try to prove time displacement (within the commonly accepted understanding) are also at fault. These experiments, such as the one performed by Joseph Hafele and Richard Keating in 1971, involve two atomic clocks – one placed at a stationary location on Earth, the other placed on a jet that travels around the Earth at a high speed for a certain period of time. The clocks are synchronized at the start, and then compared after the travel time is concluded. Although the expected time displacement would be extremely slight, since nothing nearing light speed can be achieved and the displacement will be proportionately less, the results seem to reveal that displacement occurred. Or did it?

The problem with this experiment lies with the atomic clocks themselves. These clocks rely on the half-life of a radioactive material such as cesium for their precision, and are generally very reliable, but they do tend to show slight variance between each other. This is evidenced by the fact that the atomic clock used to keep global time (the clock we use to set all other clocks by) has had to be reset a number of times over the years. We must also remember that the reliability of these clocks is dependent on the probable statistics of the random decomposition of the radioactive material, which means that as we deal with smaller periods of time, greater chance of random fluctuation in the decomposition will occur, making displacement effects seem to appear between different clocks. An overzealous scientist may inadvertently misinterpret those displacements that tend to support favorable results. Also, there are possible effects that gravity may have on radioactive decomposition rates, which could effectively cause the clock in the lower gravity of the upper atmosphere to decompose at a different rate than one in a higher gravity. None of this seems to have been taken into consideration.

Further consideration of the misunderstanding that time displacement would be one-sided, as it is commonly understood, leads to the realization that if such one-sided displacement is accurate and time slows only for the crew on the spaceship (as in scenario A), then by the same line of reasoning, our moon and anything on it must be aging more slowly than we are, and we, in turn, are aging more slowly than our sun, which is itself aging more slowly than the center of our galaxy.

Apart from all of this, there is also a problem with the idea that mass becomes infinite when traveling at the speed of light, as Einstein’s theories propose. If photons acquire infinite mass, this would cause them to draw other matter to them due to their increased gravitational force. Not only that, but they would hit objects with the force of a freight train. There is also the question of how a photon can possibly be captured within the electron shells of an atom and suddenly stop, if photons have no intermediate velocities. There are undoubtedly answers to these questions, but they are inadvertently convoluted and based on other predetermined understandings that seem to support them, and in the process of this they effectively make this area of science into an arcane field of study, and this will persistently raise the need for further convolutions of understanding in the future as further problems within this framework are encountered.

Einstein based his theories on mathematics, and composed formulas such as the famous E=mc2 to define and describe physical reality in a way that was meant to accurately correspond to it. Theories are written first and tested for accuracy later, so Einstein was only able to assume that he was accounting for all the physical variables and constants relevant to describing reality in mathematical terms. The reliability of any such formula depends on whether it takes into account every relevant factor in expressing a physical event. The certainty that all possible factors regarding physical realty are already established, when expressing reality through mathematical formulas, can never be completely assured. This is because until that relevancy is actually known, the need for such a factor is absent, and its value is simply incorporated into one or more of the other factors involved.2 But how do we know there is a need for another factor if we are ignorant of its relevance? The simple truth is that we don’t. Only time can tell as a theory is tested for its accuracy. If a theory poses a paradox, as Einstein’s theory of relativity certainly does, then there must be a missing factor that needs to be accounted for. The paradox of time displacement, as explained by the theory of relativity, poses questions that suggest there are empty categories that need to be filled. At least so far as we are to believe that any part of the scientific framework is absolute, and accurately reflects an equally absolute physical reality.

Our consideration of science has primarily been to point out the actual frailty of its underlying framework of understanding. We have discussed only a few of the many problems within this framework, with our main intention being to show that physical reality does not exist a priori, already rendered absolute before consciousness was ever able to emerge to experience it.

We can see from our review of science that physical reality is not really as absolute as we generally perceive it to be. Aspects of it arise to meet our expectations, but at the same time, many of them remain elusive to perfect unified understanding. Still other aspects – the majority of them – are no more than beliefs, having never actually been witnessed by anyone other than the scientists who give us their definition of what they have measured or observed in their laboratories, or calculated on paper.

When a new level of understanding is reached and is solidly accepted collectively, even without any physical evidence to precede it, events tend towards fulfilling its actuality – at least for the collective. This is the causal force of mind at work, and it is behind Nature’s very form and function.

The high cabal of the scientific establishment either knows of the power of this directive force and is trying to keep it undercover while taking advantage of it for themselves to maintain control over the rest of us, or they don’t know this and are just floundering to retain the inaccurate scientific understanding they have so heavily staked their careers on. It may seem very unrealistic to the average reader at this point that a high cabal within the scientific community is intent on or even capable of misleading us to any extent and thereby limiting our understanding of ourselves and our world, but bear with this for the moment. There is much more to consider before any immediate conclusions should be drawn. It is important, however, to raise the issue early on regarding the possible suppression and control of such knowledge and power. A great deal of evidence exists to indicate that this is the case.

The builders of such megalithic structures as the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt and the mountain-peak city of Machu Picchu in Peru undoubtedly had a working knowledge of the directive force that consciousness has on physical reality. There is evidence to show that this knowledge originated from the Atlantean or Lemurian civilizations, and it was likely preserved as part of the esoteric wisdom of the secret schools that later arose in Egypt, Asia, and India. This would have undoubtedly been a closely guarded secret that only the highest ranking of the priesthood was privileged to possess. This directive power may have been only partially understood, and only through certain limited methods of application, such as divination practices and incantation rituals. But the fact remains that these ancient men of knowledge were capable of feats that we still cannot explain or duplicate with our modern understanding, and this suggests that there exists, or once existed, certain knowledge that defies our current scientific framework.


1 It is because of this apparent time discrepancy that it has been seriously considered as a possible way for us to travel through time, if we were able to move faster than the speed of light. However, because the speed of light is believed to be an unsurpassable barrier, it is believed that time travel is impossible, and even interstellar space travel is impractical due to the immense distances that would require years to traverse even at light-speeds.

2 In the case of the zero-point field, this extra quantum energy showed up in mathematical calculations but was subtracted out in order to make the calculations correct, until the meaningfulness of it was established and it became an important factor.
