XX. Dissolving the Illusion
“Now, one should know that nature is illusion and the mighty lord is the illusion-maker.”– Upanisads IV.10
“The ancients considered the earth a living thing, just as man is a living thing. How can the earth support life, if it is not alive? How can a solar system support life, if it is not alive? Death does not support life. In the universe of life there is no death, only a continual transformation of appearances, forms, types, and structures. Bodies wear out but the life in them is eternal and immortal, and it goes on to the various purposes for which it was intended. Among these purposes, of course, is the growth of things.
Each human being is fulfilling one destiny, and this one destiny is manifested within himself. In it he shares with all human beings his human destiny and, to a very marked degree, shares with all non-human beings their non-human destinies. We are not the determiners of that destiny, but merely the agencies of its fulfillment.
Therefore, we should live in a kindly, gentle, constructive manner, without waste, without pride, without arrogance, but with eternal thoughtfulness and gratitude that life is a being, and that this being is our redeemer and protector.– Manly P. Hall
“This divine illusion of Mine, caused by the qualities, is hard to pierce; They who come to Me, they cross over this illusion.”– Bhagavad Gita
The Veil of Isis
To take off one’s mask and look in the mirror, is much easier said than done. The reason this treachery is so far reaching is because it exists within each of us. Every day we tell the matrix what to create in this world, whether we realize it or not. For all we have said, we have scarcely touched upon supreme truth. We have merely described in detail what the veil looks like. We must now make the effort to see what is behind it.
Joseph Campbell’s format of ‘The Hero’s Journey’ is constantly referenced in his book The Hero with a Thousand Faces. We see evidence of a plot that is constantly recurring within the mythological framework and even within the fiction books, films, video games and television shows today. We find a world in which everything is normal, but a change comes about, either within this world in general or within the Hero himself. The change leads to a journey that must be carried out. It is usually based either on the Hero seeking a better world, or else the recovery of his former world that has been threatened. In the end, he will have overcome many obstacles, but will finally bring about the resolution of the threat or find the key to obtaining a new outlook and therefore he finds the certain ‘something’ that he was looking for.
Why is it that 99 percent of the stories we read, see or hear fall into this format? It is because it reflects the human journey, and since we were formed ‘in the image of god’ it is apparent that the entire universe follows this path as well. In other words, this journey is a description, ranging from completely literal to completely metaphoric, of Phi – the golden ratio. It is a formula for understanding how the Universe constantly expands its own complexity and spreads a conscious ordered system throughout the chaotic cosmos. The old world is left at the beginning, the hero travels through a complete cycle of time, (through a dark age, or challenge) and comes back to the original world, but in a different way – in a new age. It has not gone in a circle, but has come back on a higher level as if ascending along a spring-shaped spiral. It is a coming of age story. Besides the macrocosmic version of the constantly improving universe and the microcosmic version of the singular hero, there is also the story of humanity.
We have all the intrinsic data for the story – the normal world with its functioning societies, the individuals who interact with this world, and we have just described in depth the evil entity that serves as the threat to this world. We are the heroes. It is our duty to stand up and fight for our right to live peacefully on this planet. In the past, we have seen the hero rise many times – Akhenatan, Moses, Solon, Plato, Pythagoras, Siddhartha, Zarathustra, Lao Tzu, Jesus, Leonardo, Copernicus, Bruno, Luther, Shakespeare, St Germaine, Blavatsky, Einstein, Cayce, Tesla and Jung, just to name a few. Every time the world grows dark, there will come an illumination. However, as we have seen, it is not always an individual. Rather, we see beacons of light scattered across the desert of time like oases – Sumer, Babylon, the first ages of Egypt, Vedic India, Mythic Greece, Alexandria, the various Gnostic uprisings, the Hermetic Renaissance, the enlightenment, the protestant reformation, the birth of the new world… These all represent moments in which wisdom has triumphed over the selfish threat of the Red Dragon.
This adversary represents a cosmic role that must be filled so as to provoke the furthering of one’s quest for wisdom. On our planet today, the adversary is the Red Dragon. Within modern folklore, it may be represented as Sauron of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, Voldemort of J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, or the Emperor of Star Wars. Of course, this is to personify the threat, though each of these evil leaders have enormous followings and vast armies at their command. In following, it only makes sense that we would see evidence of a modest-seeming grassroots rebellion that will rise against this adversary.
Tolkien’s ‘Fellowship of the Ring’, Rowling’s ‘Order of the Phoenix’, and Lucas’ ‘Rebel Alliance’ all serve as necessary forces for good in such dark times. It is only logical that this universal constant of the people’s rebellion against tyranny is also to be found in ‘real life’. In fact, perhaps World War II is the perfect example, after all, all three of the above examples can be likened to (if they were not directly modeled after) WWII. Sauron, Voldemort, and the emperor could all be Hitler, and orcs, death-eaters and storm troopers can all be likened to the Nazis. This is a common comparison for a simple reason – that most people today consider Hitler to be the ultimate example of evil, and that is exactly what the symbolism of these mythical characters is seeking to embrace. When the great threat shows its face to the world, an alliance is formed. The world joins together to end the madness and cruelty that threaten the peaceful existence of the whole planet.
Today, the Nazis are known as the Cabal. Perhaps the closest we can come to defining the head of this monster is to narrow it down to the Rothschild family, the House of Windsor/Bush and the Vatican (run by the Jesuit Order under the Black Pope). At the very top are the Archons. If this is the Cabal, then what does the resistance looks like?
Let us begin from the base layer of resistance – independent warriors of psychological warfare. We have already mentioned several key players who have arisen throughout history to answer the call, but we must focus on the present times. In order to understand the roots of the problems we face and in order to grasp the true enigma, the first step is the liberation of wisdom. To expose the lies that the world’s power elite have kept hidden from us for millennia is to effectively end their rule. For this reason, the research carried out by countless scientists, archaeologists, anthropologists, metaphysicians and others who are not afraid to contradict the big picture, serves as testimony against a censored version of the story of our origins and our true nature.
Of course, it is of the utmost importance that these professionals do not conform to the mainstream assumptions within their fields. There are no ‘out of place artifacts’, there are only ‘out of date theories’. The evidence is piling up so quickly that it has already reversed the roles of those debating it – that is to say, The exception has become the rule. The picture of antiquity that we were taught in school ignores evidence of high wisdom within ancient societies; calling them coincidences or anomalies, but now that same flawed story itself is the exception to the rule that overwhelming recent evidence has proven – that our ancient ancestors were far wiser than many of the most brilliant contemporary minds.
As we climb the pyramid to the top, we find the schism remains balanced. At the highest levels, we find both the self seeking, spiritually blind sociopaths and as well as earnest, humble servants of mankind. There is a threshold, however, above which, the selfish mindset can never rise. Practitioners of dark magic can exploit the people based on withheld knowledge, tricking them into thinking that they posses supernatural abilities, yet these advantages will never bring such people to a place of satisfaction, as it will only stall their progress towards enlightenment. Their tricks will only serve them in this mortal realm. The true aspirant to the heavenly abode, however, will loosen their ties to this limited reality; will pluck out the three nails that pin the rose to the cross; will inhabit a world of meaning and purpose that leaves behind no desires for (or dependencies upon) this illusory playground of consciousness.
To build for oneself a body of light energy and to break free from the crude physical shell is the goal of the seeker, but this goal will never be reached by one who is deeply connected to desires within this world – pleasure, power, money, sensual gratification, etc. Those who seek things of this nature are choosing to remain in this density. Those who understand and follow the path of dharma will find the Masters in time and will eventually discover the entrance back to their pure state.
Helena Blavatsky has been heavily sourced and quoted within this work because she opened the world’s eyes to many of the enigmas contained herein. Her life led her through many lands and she was a witness to many events and occurrences that most westerners would not believe possible. The greatest accomplishment of her life, however, was meeting and working with several Masters in Tibet. These ‘Masters’, she described as those who have perfected the human condition – who can choose to inhabit higher worlds but prefer to remain incarnate in order to aid humanity in achieving the same level of consciousness they have attained.
After making contact through dreams and visions, she finally met the Master, or Mahatma, Morya, in person. From this point on and for a time beforehand, she dedicated her entire life to the work that the Masters gave her. She became a spokesperson for these divine teachers, and one of her first assignments was the founding of the Theosophical Society. The society became the singular medium through which millions came to learn of the most profound teachings on Earth. The lessons of Lao Tzu, Confucius, Zoroaster, Jesus Christ, Buddha, Pythagoras, and Plato found a place within learned society once again. In the tradition of Alexandria, the essence of the world’s greatest religions were pooled together and immense knowledge was given freely.
On November 17th, 1875, the society was formed with the mission, “to collect and diffuse a knowledge of the laws which govern the universe.” Later the statement was amending to three specific goals; “To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or color. To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science. To investigate the unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in man.”
The society tends to reach out to people on every level of learning, providing basic teachings to a wide public, but also offering the most sacred and inspired teachings on the planet for the use of the dedicated student. Its history is fascinating at every moment, with many incredible teachers, authors and lecturers leading it into popularity and spreading light across the land. In the early years, the headquarters were moved from New York City to Adyar in India. Over time, another branch expanded throughout Europe. Today the official headquarters are still in India, while Europe and America each have their own somewhat independent groups.
The sole purpose of the Theosophical Society was and is to encourage the peaceful development of humankind; to show the common seed which has planted every religion, exposing the people of the world to the concept of the perennial philosophy; to reintroduce the transcendental teachings of ancient societies and to promote the understanding that science, theology, philosophy and art are all inseparable limbs of a single body of knowledge. The society is purely a wisdom school teaching the essentially implied truths of the laws of our universe including reincarnation, the ground of consciousness, thought forms and their effects, the material of the soul, the development of clairvoyance, the laws of karmic evolution, and the true identity, history and purpose of the human being.
When studying theosophy, a student will quickly learn many useful aids in balancing their own lives emotionally, mentally and otherwise. Imagine a scientist who has developed a microscope. He discovers germs. Though not everyone has a microscope to see these germs with, he is still inclined to tell his friends that he has discovered the source of illness, and it is not demonic possession, but tiny bacteria. His friends are then put in a position in which they can choose to ignore the warning or else to heed the advice and be aware of their sanitation in order to remain healthy. The only reason not to believe this would be fear of society’s reaction as you adopt an unsavory belief. However, for the explorer of knowledge, there is no harm in remaining open to ideas such as this.
In a similar manner, one with clairvoyant skills can be the revealer, pouring knowledge concerning higher layers of reality down toward the average man. What these teachers relate is ours to consider, and many who read the words of the theosophists will tend to follow this rabbit hole deeper and deeper as the words resonate with their inner sight. The practices in awareness and psychic development will pay off quickly for the ardent student. On the other hand, some will claim that such studies are fantastical and imaginative, having no basis in reality. They may claim that it is pseudo-scientific nonsense, and these critics may be related to those who ignore the warning of germs that carry viruses. Because of their ignorance, they have lost the chance to improve their quality of life. It is only a loss to them. The teachers of theosophy, for this reason, defend their honor only within reason. It is not the approval of the critic that they seek, but the disclosure of truth to those who thirst for it.
In the deeper teachings, we encounter the ultimate goal – the unfolding of the golden flower. As this whole book has described, the goal is to consciously step into the higher world and develop a light body or soul that will eventually replace the physical one so that one may ascend above the cycles of rebirth and karma. This process is known in Taoism as the ‘circulation of the light.’ The image of the Holy Grail is a metaphor also of this process. One must transform the body into the perfect cup. Otherwise, the sacred serum could never be poured in – the elixir of immortality, holy spirit and the breath of God. From this ethereal material the threads of the soul are spun and woven together.
The Masters of the Himalayas are part of an organization made up only of beings who have walked this entire path and have attained this perfected human state. It is called the Great White Brotherhood. According to theosophy, this network of ascended souls is largely working from a higher realm, a less dense dimension, and so most members do not have human bodies, they are invisible. There are, however, always at least seven representatives who remain incarnate. They are also known as lamas, masters or mahatmas. Each of these teachers represents one of the seven rays of creation.
In the past, there have been very few people to reach this level, but in recent times, thousands have been ‘crossing the threshold’. Nearly all will ascend upward and never again enter a physical vehicle. From a higher viewpoint they watch the development of all life upon the planet. In this heavenly region, all intentions are united. At a certain level, all must sacrifice their individuality, and work only for the furthering of conscious life on every level. They are the aids of nature on a plane that is unrecognized by scientific-minded societies, guiding the world as would loving parents.
The Kabbalistic book of revelations relates that after a great tribulation, the righteous will be resurrected into the ‘kingdom of heaven’, or as some relate, paradise – the Garden of Eden. Does this not perfectly relate to the tribulation of life, in which one must walk the narrow path towards purity, leading to the higher world – Brahman – the divine ground where they will shed the outer garment and regain the freedom of lucid consciousness? The Kingdom of Heaven is the Aether – the Astral Light – the Akasha – Elysian Fields – Avalon – it is the plane on which the soul may travel freely in it’s liberated form, and sending visualizations directly through it’s silver tether, it transmits directly to the brain. The ‘temple’ that Jesus describes is your skull – Golgotha. The entrance is your third eye.
The wisdom of theosophy has had a profound influence on the world and still does to this day. It strives to give salvation through knowledge. Within our discussion of mass heroic efforts to enlighten mankind, this society and the invisible one above it may be the greatest single force on the planet that is so dedicated to the cause of saving and teaching humanity. We have discussed the evidence of an invisible but permanent presence that may have sparked the gnostic flames of the past couple millennia, one that has best been described by the Rosicrucian tradition, but perhaps the better name for it is that which Blavatsky has disclosed – the Great White Brotherhood.
“When the iron bird flies, Buddhism will travel to the land of the red man.”
– Padmasambava, 800 AD
In the wake of the Theosophical Society’s debut came more and more interest in the ideology of the Far East, where the treasures of ancient philosophy were preserved intact through all the centuries that the West spent struggling to control and destroy them. The Vedas are one of the oldest surviving texts on the planet and they were taken largely from oral traditions reaching further into the past. For this reason, the date of the first composition of this immense body of work is nearly impossible to calculate. Hinduism is considered the world’s oldest surviving religion. Buddhism, as well, has an equally ancient origin if one considers the term in its broader sense and Tibetan Buddhism may be the closest practice to the Egyptian tradition still existing. The Tibetan and Egyptian Books of the Dead have many similarities. This is because they were both formed from the remnants of the Atlantean religion. The point is that China, India and the surrounding countries have been the best custodians of this knowledge in the long journey through dark times of barbaric desperation. These nations were a bank of wisdom but it was only available to the readers of Sanskrit or one of the many other languages in the region. When the first translations of these works reached American audiences, the levee soon collapsed and the reservoir flooded West.
Some of the first to take notice of these works (besides the theosophists) were the transcendentalists. Authors such as Henry David Thorough, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman all were influenced by the Eastern religions. These pioneers also influenced the beatnik generation to investigate such works. Jack Kerouac’s Dharma Bums demonstrates the popularity of eastern thought in his day. Aldous Huxley was also an instrumental aid in helping the knowledge reach America. These concepts were the primary inspiration behind his works The Doors of Perception, Heaven and Hell, and The Perennial Philosophy. These writers were all very popular and their interest in Oriental philosophy paved the way for the hippy generation that would soon sweep the nation. This social movement was not only carried out by authors, but also by representatives of the religions themselves; missionaries.
For example, you may have encountered the followers of the Krishna on the streets of major cities. I first met them in New Orleans where they host a free dinner every Sunday night. They do this in every city in which they are established and are very interested to talk with strangers about religion. It is known as GaudiyaVaishnavism, a form of Vaishnavite Hinduism, though its symbology is universal and the Krishna Consciousness is ultimately only another version of the Christ Consciousness – a separate ray of a single light.
This Hindu presence in America was made possible by a man by the name of A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. He arrived in New York City in the year 1965 and the following year established the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). He stayed in the United States until his death in 1977. In those twelve years he published over 80 books, traveled the world many times over and watched as ISKCON grew to contain over a hundred temples and several institutes and farm communities. His popularity was greatly strengthened by his friendship with the Beatles and particularly with George Harrison. Let us not forget that the 1960s in the United States was a time in which many people had become open to wider views of reality. The young generation, following in the footsteps of the beat poets and the transcendentalists before them, was learning deeper truths about the grounds of consciousness and at the same time much attention fell on the Far East, as the military was interfering in Vietnam. This setting welcomed the Hindu religion quite eagerly.
Tibetan Buddhism was also arriving in a similar fashion. Chogyam Trungpa was recognized as a reincarnate master teacher at the age of 18 months. After meditating on the current and future states of Buddhism, he decided that the teachings must be brought to western society. After his monastery was raided and the sacred texts destroyed by the Chinese military, he could see that the Buddhism of Tibet was greatly threatened and that new paths must be found for it. He left with 300 followers and ended up walking most of the way to India over the course of ten months. Thirteen members of the party made it to the end. The others either starved, or were taken by the Chinese.
Trungpa then moved to Europe spending time in England and Scotland. He became obsessed with western culture. He immersed himself deeply in the outlook, language and dress. It was as if he were a doctor or psychiatrist analyzing a patient and trying to get inside the patient’s mind so as to ascertain the source of an illness and prescribe a remedy. As he came to America, he already had a confusing and controversial reputation. He was not wearing robes, he openly drank and smoked, it was known that he was not celibate and he never attempted to hide his humanity. He sought to follow the laws of Shambhala in America – meaning he attempted to set a course for the purification and perfection of society from the heart of western civilization. In 1970 he founded his first American center in Vermont and in ‘74 founded the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado.
While he spread the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism he came to work with another public figure noted for helping bring Hindu theology to America, Dr. Richard Alpert, who had at the time taken the name Baba Ram Dass. Together they taught at Naropa. Ram Dass was also a close friend of Timothy Leary and Aldous Huxley. In the same year that Naropa was founded, His Holiness, the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa envisioned a seat for himself within America. This monastery was finally completed in 1993 and was titled Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, in Woodstock, New York. Today, the 17th Karmapa visits often and oversees an international network of lodges from this beautiful mountain monastery. The establishing of this American center of Buddhist study was another great step towards the eastern illumination of the Americas.
I have had the personal honor of seeing both the Karmapa and Dalai Lama during their visits to this monastery and public appearances within the town. I still remember seeing the clouds part and a double rainbow appear in the sky the day the Dalai Lama arrived. Of course, Woodstock is a very famous town because of its affiliation with the counterculture movement that we have been discussing, and so it is not difficult to see why such a place would be chosen. It is not only because the hippy generation was already here, rather the hippies chose this place for the same reason the Karmapa did – its sheer beauty and mystical allure. The Catskill Mountains are small in comparison to the Rockies, Appalachia or even Adirondacks, but they are the oldest in the country, and hold quite a unique energy.
Another major influence, George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, was a seeker of sacred truths his whole life. As a young man, he sought out the various wisdom traditions of the Middle and Far East. In Meetings with Remarkable Men, he describes his early life journey, slowly discovering truths and clues that led him to finally discover an ancient brotherhood hidden within a remote desert. Here he learned the language of postures and dances in which stories, lessons, and even recipes could be ‘read’. He learned from highly developed teachers who taught how to awaken from everyday life – a state which Gurdjieff referred to as sleep.
With these lessons, he returned to Europe and developed his own method of rising above the slumber of everyday thought. In his view, the personality represents a programmed mechanism that does nothing a machine could not do – processing incoming impressions and forming reactions. This was a mechanical reaction and everything learned from the time of birth was simply an expression of this process. To truly BE, as he taught, one must find a way to turn off this machine, quiet the senses and unite mind, body and emotions into a balanced whole. He categorized the various transcendental methods commonly practiced into three groups; the way of the fakir focused on mastery of the physical body, the way of the monk focused on spiritual and religious feeling, and the way of the yogi centered on the mind. Gurdjieff developed a method that practices these three as a whole, what he called, the Fourth Way. The path of Gurdjieff was to learn ‘how to know’, then learn to ‘know’ and finally, one could ‘be’.
As he developed his teachings, a greater and greater body of individuals came under his instruction and he built an institute from the ground up, finding various ways to fund the project as it grew. Those close to him seemed to consider him as a living embodiment of the wisdom he taught. He would not merely recite doctrine, but taught by his example. His presence filled the room in which he stood. He spoke to each student or acquaintance and chose his words based on who that person was and what lessons of life they were currently learning, but his greater message affected all levels of minds. Today, his institute lives on with branches across the world.
Many others also took part in the inevitable unveiling of Eastern knowledge. Hatha and Raja Yoga were introduced largely by Sivananda Saraswati and Swami Vishnudevananda. Sri Aurobindo (Ghose) was a popular translator, poet and philosopher who spent much time in England bridging the complex language barrier that Buddhism was trying to cross. Sathya Sai Baba was called an Avatar and miracle worker who could apparently heal people and manifest objects from his bare hands. His popularity drew many towards the religions of the east. Perhaps another profoundly important aid was the work of Carl Jung, whose theories about consciousness were closely mirrored by these unfolding revelations from the Orient. Nicholas Roerich was also instrumental in bringing knowledge of Shambhala to America, and his close friend, Manly Hall, also established a major school of ancient wisdom from all cultures in Los Angeles, the Philosophic Research Society. Their collective effort affected the United States at its highest levels, even providing council within the White House. Edgar Cayce, though he was Christian, also opened up the conversation about reincarnation and the higher grounds of consciousness to the American audience. He established the Association for Research and Enlightenment.
In speaking of the great resistance against the sociopathic globalization campaign, these many individuals and the foundations and institutes they established form a solid core. The great migration of Buddhist, Hindu and Taoist ideologies to the Western world was a turning point in the development of mankind and a major step forward for this global resistance.
This universal LOGOSis eternal and unmoving. It is not human, it is not alien. It is not even alive in the sense that we generally imagine, but it is the source of all life and consciousness in the universe. It is the essence of every one of the teachings we have analyzed. I have heard the debate countless times in which the scientist calls it ‘the universe’, ‘evolution’, ‘gravity’ and ‘chaos’, while the religious student simply calls it GOD. None of these simple terms can describe the force that glues the cosmos together and in an orderly manner, guides its precise and complex processes. Any description of such a grand concept is a daunting task, though we will find that many clues can be gathered together to fill in the holes and create a grand understanding of the universal design.
“We build but to tear down. Most of our work and resource is squandered. Our onward march is marked by devastation. Everywhere there is an appalling loss of time, effort and life. A cheerless view, but true.”
– Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla was inarguably one of the most profound geniuses in the history of Western culture. The repression of his work has prevented him from becoming a household name. That is until recent years in which he becomes the topic of interest in many circles. Perhaps this rebirth of popularity is due to the fact that many have become aware of the potentials he created for us. As the petroleum kings continually seek to repress his patents and keep consumers dependent upon their own industry, the intelligent world looks increasingly towards alternative energy technology. As solar and wind power become more popular, many are calling for a return to the technology of Tesla, which includes some of the most efficient designs for energy production and distribution to this day.
We are all aware of the dangers of coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear power. We are destroying the planet by taking these resources from it, then once again by processing and refining it, and a third time by the after affects and disposal. We are poisoning our planet and ourselves and wasting massive amounts of time and labor only to put more money in the pockets of the world’s richest.
This is perhaps one of the most important issues in the world today because if the whole world had free, clean energy, then humanity would be blooming with life and vitality. The standard of living would skyrocket. Less developed nations would benefit the most – having energy for water purification and agriculture. This technology would level the playing field. If the whole world were given free, clean energy, 99 percent of our troubles would be over. Not only would everyone on earth be provided energy, but the petroleum gluttons, the hydro-fracking giants and the coal plants would all lose their stranglehold on the global economy.
Is this a possibility? Absolutely, but it would not benefit Exxon Mobil, Shell, Conoco Phillips, BP, Chevron, General Electric, General Motors, Ford Motors, or any other corporation that is dependent on the sales of oil, coal, motors, power lines, nuclear power, etcetera. It is simply easier to say, anyone in the fields of energy and the production of systems used to bring that energy to your home.
The simple truth is, all the energy you use in your life, not just electrical, but also mechanical, can be pulled out of thin air. While it remains true that such a shift of politics and industries could not happen overnight, the fact remains that the technology is available, and only the bureaucracy that protects the dirty industries stands in the way. Should that factor be suddenly eliminated, we would have astonishing results within a decade. Quite quickly, oil, coal, and natural gas would be a distant memory.
Tesla was an example of a true genius who served only humanity. He made it as far as he did because he was never brought down to the level of those businessmen who only sought profits. When Einstein was asked what is was like to be the world’s most intelligent man, he replied, “I don’t know, you’ll have to ask Nikola Tesla”. Einstein always kept a copy of Blavatsky’s The Secret Doctrine on his desk and called it his bible. This is quite interesting, as it implies that perhaps quantum theory not only mirrored the advanced cosmology of the Vedas, but it was perhaps discovered by him through Blavatsky’s translations of ancient Eastern texts!
In 1934 Tesla stated, “The desire that guides me in all I do is the desire to harness the forces of nature to the service of mankind.” As humanity began to realize that electrical current was a force that could be harnessed and used as a means to aid everyday life, we find a certain point at which a level of efficiency was obtained to this end. At this point, the business side began to develop. Research, though it continued, was not necessarily released. The patents were now valuable and men like Edison realized this. Tesla, on the other hand, had no agenda less than to provide free energy to the population of the entire world. His patents were all bought up, largely by Westinghouse whose industry made all the money that could have been Tesla’s. Nevertheless, he was not halted. He learned a great deal, but ended up ultimately in a battle with Edison who advocated Direct Current systems, while Tesla developed Alternating Current. (DC and AC)
This led to what became known as the battle of the currents. Strong support was found for both systems. Both were also backed by financiers who owned companies that wanted the rights to major production for whichever system won out. Tesla pointed out the inefficiencies of Edison’s DC powerhouses and appliances, and corrected them with a simply better system. However, he was a young foreigner challenging an American legend.
In the end, the industry realized this fact. George Westinghouse was determined to supply Tesla’s system to world. He sponsored Tesla and bought up all the patents for AC systems. At the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago, an exposition was held in which an entire building was devoted to electrical exhibits. At first, the room was going to be lit by the Edison Company using direct current, but in the end, the honor was given to Tesla and Westinghouse, who constructed a never before imagined spectacle of electric light. This event served as a major turning point towards AC, which soon won the war.
However, this was only the beginning. Tesla had no intention of stopping there. Ever since childhood he had dreamed of coming to America and creating a generator out of Niagara Falls. He did. All this energy was distributed through power lines, which took a while to develop, (working out the kinks to make them safe) but his dream was for no wires to be used at all. So he began to research wireless transmission of energy, and though he had great success, it was at this point that the industry took a step away from him.
He wrote, “the idea gradually took hold of me that the earth might be used in place of the wire, thus dispensing with artificial conductors altogether. The immensity of the globe seemed an unsurmountable obstacle but after a prolonged study of the subject I became satisfied that the undertaking was rational.”
He also stated, “I demonstrated conclusively by experiments that great amounts of electrical energy can be transmitted to any distance through upper air strata which are easily accessible, and since this truth has been recognized every fiber has been strained to realize such a transmission on a large scale.”
All this was going a bit too far for the industry men. If energy could be received directly out of the sky, then what could these companies sell? At the same time, Tesla’s research extended into magnetic motors and generators, so the automotive industry, such as Edison’s friend, Henry Ford, also began to see that their profits were threatened.
The industries used their influence to imply that Tesla had been a great genius, but that he had gone off the deep end and no longer knew what he was doing. Meanwhile, he was solving the world’s energy crisis. The story of Tesla’s life was one of the saddest in all history. For his initial breakthroughs he was hailed a genius, but as his greatest genius came forth in his following breakthroughs, he was quietly asked to retire. He would not retire, however. Instead he continued to research free energy and develop more and more inventions. In this time, he was attacked on all sides. His laboratories were burnt to the ground, his reputation was destroyed, and all of his patents were making other people richer than kings. By the end of his life, Westinghouse had agreed to pay for his retirement, and he died a quiet old man in his home.
We must remember, however, that he never lost his wit and he never lost his will to provide the world with the energy that it deserved – that he had found for us. The magnitude of his accomplishments cannot be overstated. He also created the first devices for transmitting radio waves and as he grew older and his accomplishments became more and more secret, he developed research in focused energy (lasers), antigravity, medicine and even time travel.
Tesla’s labs were raided and the equipment and notes from these secret experiments were all confiscated by the deep state. All this knowledge and power was in the hands of men like Werner Von Braun. Yet, there was one man who certainly had his hands on it while working in these defense programs, and seemingly had the intention to share it all with world. His name was John G. Trump, Donald’s uncle!
Is it possible that the Tesla technology has been in Trump’s hands this whole time? Is it destined to be released to the world now? Perhaps! If so, we are saved. Not only will our energy crisis be solved, but it would mean the end of disease and illness of every kind. The Tesla Chambers and Med Beds that have been used in the space program for many years can apparently cure any illness and even regrow organs that have been removed. The leaks have claimed that this equipment will soon be available in every city in the world. They claim that the devices can even restore youth by age regressing patients up 30 years. Using ultraviolet light, the system essentially repairs and reads DNA and then rebuilds the body using the genetic blueprint. All one must do is lie down on the table and enter a deep sleep, to awaken healed!
The way in which our DNA reacts to light is a central clue to the great illusion. There are many signs that tend to show what metaphysical sciences have been hinting at more and more. What we see is a facade. Reality does not exist unless we observe it. Light energy can transform our DNA. Invisible currents run through all space. There are alternative realities and there are also elements of this reality that we can never see. Yet there are windows through which we might look.
Our true challenge is to break the habits of greed and selfishness that imprison the world and to redirect our efforts to uprooting them from the source. This can only be achieved through knowledge of the ground of all being. For this reason, our world is undergoing a complete spiritual revival, and as we have been discussing, the resurrection and protection of ancient wisdom is the pulsing heart of the planetary ascension.
The future of our planetary community is dependent on the mass-discovery of the higher layers of reality. We have seen ample evidence in support of the idea that forces exist which in a very direct way, control our reality. Therefore, with the correct tools, these currents can be used to our benefit. We have seen that consciousness exists outside of the bounds of corporeal creations. It is a universal attribute of the universe and is distributed throughout every particle in the cosmos.
Fortunately for the cause, many plants and fungi contain chemicals that, when consumed by humans dissolve the boundaries of sense perception and therefore give one a firsthand experience of the invisible worlds. The many misconceptions regarding these substances have led to society’s banishment of them. Therefore, these falsehoods must be dispelled. Such organisms are our allies in development – our teachers.
Terence McKenna looked deep into the history of our relationship with addiction and substance use/abuse in his book The Food of the Gods. He relates that the human brain size has doubled in the past 3 million years – a phenomena that is thought to be “the most explosive development of the organ of a higher animal in the entire evolutionary record” – the greatest mystery of evolution.
The question is obvious; what was the catalyst? Many of the early people encountered mushrooms that contained psilocybin. McKenna describes how several of the effects of mushrooms gave these individuals various advantages over those who did not find them.
In small doses, psilocybin can improve vision. What McKenna calls ‘chemical binoculars’ certainly would help a great deal when foraging or hunting. Being able to stockpile more food for one’s family leads to increased chances of survival. In larger doses, it can cause a state of high alertness and focus, but also a sort of anxious agitation giving the consumer energy and often leading to sexual stimulation. More sex and babies also means a higher chance of survival for the group.
When the full effects of psilocybin are felt, one experiences ‘boundary disillusion’. In this phrase the boundary is that which separates one life form from another, the ego. Suppression of the ego is the result of eating the mushroom. Therefore one can experience life from outside of oneself. One can share consciousness with all the life around them.
When these early humans discovered the mushrooms, they became the first shamans. Orgies were common and this created an indifferent feeling about paternal lines. The children did not belong to the mother and father, but to the whole tribe. Terence describes this as paradise and the fall from this state was in the time of the neolithic revolution. As man learned to plant his own food, he ceased to be nomadic. With this turn of events came concerns of defense, permanent settlement, kings, standing armies, male domination, and a disconnection from the mushroom. Ever after we have been left with an inner longing for the return to this paradise.
In this way, we can justly see that our relationship with such chemicals is symbiotic. Of course, this key is not found only in mushrooms but in many plants and even animals all over the planet. In every time and place, the self-made shaman was a natural and frequent occurrence. All one had to do was to eat a plant and the secret was revealed. All regions had there own – a cactus, an herb, a frog, White Lotus, Acacia Tree, Soma etcetera.
An important point in McKenna’s theory is that this experience was what led to the development of language. Today we all take language for granted, but the truth is that this is an incredible aid to our consciousness. We are literally able to transmit thoughts and feelings to others simply by making sounds or writing symbols. With a complex language system comes the ability to build collective intelligence and store important ideas. We begin to externalize our deepest understandings. In this way, we are able to open the doors between our otherwise isolated minds, something that the psychedelic experience does even to a greater degree on its own, but language strengthens this bond. It makes sense that a mind opening experience would bring about an ability to express and share the contents of the mind with others. We have already discussed in detail the language of symbol, of alchemy, of dreams, of mythology. This language consists of the elements of creation, the primary powers generating reality.
We cannot evolve past our language. There are still many things and experiences that are indescribable within our limited lexicon. The psychedelic experience is a language in itself. In time, our mode of expression will grow and higher knowledge will be shared more easily. Today we see an extremely comprehensive yet differentiated assortment of forms of communication, nearly all of which can be contained externally from the human observer. For example, newspapers, books, emails, movies, recordings, songs, dances, paintings, sculpture, color, number, radio broadcasts, telephones and so on. All these media capture the collective knowledge of our species and preserve it in a visible or invisible matrix of signals.
This is another safety net for human survival. Externalizing and sharing information was certainly a security in the earlier days of language, but in more recent times it has become a means of penetrating the mysteries of nature.
In the greek mystery schools, we find the same traditions as the early shamans – oftentimes lunar festivals would celebrate the ‘great secret’ and orgies were common. Many of the ancient initiation ceremonies utilized hallucinogenic substances to bring the initiate out of his individualized self. The legendary Soma was but one of these. So from the earliest days of humanity at least some pockets of people have constantly been aware of this secret gift that aligns one mind with that of the Earth (Gaian mind) and opens the doors to the conscious Matrix/Mother of creation.
Many skeptics call this experience false, claiming that such hallucinations are no more real than dreams. However, I believe that in some cases with some substances, one’s mind does not create these visions, but they are simply revealed to the individuals as would be colors to blind man whose vision is restored. What we experience may feel like a dream in some ways, since our environment can react to our thoughts without our awareness of any personal expression of such thoughts, yet it is not ‘all in your head’. It is there all the time, and yes, in such a state you may find the power to remotely influence it, but this is also happening all the time. The only difference is that you can now see the invisible mechanism as this process runs its course.
In this way, these substances are gatekeepers of the higher worlds. To recognize the help that these organisms have given us in our long history of development is to recognize their true character. Today all psychedelic drugs are Schedule 1, meaning they have no medical applications and are extremely hazardous. Nearly all other drugs besides heroin are considered lesser offenses. In the social panic of the LSD boom in the 1960’s, all these were hastily banned without legitimate testing or study. As youths were finding out across the country, LSD is similar to the forbidden fruit of the bible – the sacred divine knowledge that has the ability to turn man into a co-creator of the universe – but that society told us was ‘evil’ and never to be thought or spoken of.
There were many reasons for the war on these substances, and the seriousness with which the government handled the situation reveals their ultimate fear of a ‘knowing’ public. Timothy Leary stated, “LSD is a drug capable of causing psychotic behavior in people who have not taken it.” It is all too true. These aids to humanity must be safely available. We have evolved hand in hand with this singular experience for ages unknown, then suddenly it is no longer allowed. Does this make sense? Propaganda tells us that it is no more than a drug that’s chemical affects make you ecstatic and so those who never try it may just lump it in with our other chemical addictions such as alcohol, cigarettes and marijuana. Yet none of these contain the potential to open the mind to the degree found in psychedelics.
Many of the indigenous peoples refer to these plants as teachers or as medicine. They describe their power to heal not only the body but the soul – openly displaying the faults and imperfections of our being and showing us the way to purification. Since people often become aware of their faults and the consequences of their actions, they are often compelled to change their lives for the better. In this case, legalization would reduce crime significantly and the public would gain awareness of the superconscious realm, as long as the substances were safely available, but this is often easier said than done. A guide or shaman is needed.
People tend to desire fantasy, magic, divine wisdom. In their innermost selves, they long for paradise restored. They live their lives with a feeling of longing and incompleteness that they try to fill with religions, jobs, wars, science or whatever else they can pretend will arrive at meaning someday. What they are missing is their other half – their higher self that can at least be glimpsed if not accessed by way of plant allies or other keys.
Having said this, it must be noted that these substances are not simply free passes to nirvana. They will not bring one into full contact with their higher self, but they will give one a view of the ‘inside’. They are the keys only to the entrance of the path, but not to the destination. Ultimately, union with intelligent infinity must be activated within and this is possible only when one has adequately purified themselves of personal ambition – when they have realized that their highest mission is also the highest mission of GOD. Those who learn what there is to learn from these drugs may eventually find that looking in on reality through ‘windows’ is not as useful as walking right in through the door. The DOOR is meditation, mindfulness and dedication.
These substances can be very dangerous. I have personally seen hell on earth when a close friend of mine lost touch with reality, and this potential exists anytime one ventures into the unknown world. I believe that this experience must be available to all, but within an appropriate setting. We must welcome the idea of shamanism back into our culture and allow those who have the gift of higher sight to be guides, that all who wish might take the medicine and the planet be restored to paradise.
As a culture, we must come to understand that our subconscious or superconscious fields are interacting with all the life around us, whether or not we are aware of it. Surprisingly enough, there is a great deal of science to support this claim.
Conception and Manifestation
Outside of this very narrow handful of examples are many other sources that lead to a simple and not surprising conclusion – life itself is a web that we, as individuals, are a part of. In the various forms of metaphysical studies, we find more clues detailing the power of this field. Essentially, one of the most incredible findings has been that every particle in the universe has an alternate form as a wave. It means that everything in existence can transition between materiality and an energetic form. When a particle is in its energetic form, it is as though it does not exist in our world – it is unmanifest. Like the Vedic concept of the days and nights of Brahma, when the whole universe oscillates between creation and uncreation, these tiny particles enter in and out of material form.
Even more astounding is the discovery that conscious observation affects material at this level. That is to say, matter acts one way when it is alone and another way when it is observed by consciousness. Theoretical quantum physicist, Dr. Amit Goswami writes, “Quantum physics is the physics of possibilities that are the product of upward causation. We choose the actual events of our experience from these possibilities, which is downward causation. And we don’t choose in our individual conditioned ego. […] When an observer looks, the possibility wave changes into actuality. Colloquially we say, the wave changes into a particle.”
Plenty of new age books and articles explain the relationship between conscious conception and material manifestation. It is somewhat superfluous to describe the law of attraction. The long and short of it is that consciousness enables creation. Everything that comes to exist in the material world is only an embodiment of the thought form that births it.
This metaphysical concept is reminiscent of the ancient cosmologies that tend to describe the first conscious force penetrating infinite chaos. Only then do the forms take on material existence. Without consciousness, the forms of the universe would only exist in a state similar to a dream. It is hard for some to accept that, for instance, a house they see in a dream is ‘real’ because they know that dream forms do not exist in the waking world. However, perhaps the error here is that society has conditioned us to believe that only what is visible and tangible is real. As scientists come to understand the nature of matter, they realize more and more that what exists in physical form is only a fragment of the object’s complete existence. For every particle within material creation, there is an opposite that lies unmade. Only when a singular whole is cleaved in two will it actually be observable, as half of it becomes physical, the other half remains uncreated.
Our wise ancestors related the belief that the world of consciousness is closer to reality, while the physical world is only an effect of this realm. Therefore, dreams are in some ways more real than waking life and what we call death is actually closer to life, while that which we call life is more like a dream. These ideas are finding increasingly greater support from quantum field theorists and metaphysical scientists. Ultimately, this is the secret behind manifestation. If humans are conscious, then they posses the power to be creators. It could be said that consciousness, or at least a certain level of consciousness, is the Breath of God. We are made in God’s image, and we contain divinity within us. This is because we have the ability to create, preserve or destroy any part of this existence. The only thing preventing us from utilizing this power is the lie that we’ve been told – that we are merely intelligent animals – that we came from only dirt. The truth is that we came from a pool of conscious spirit and we chose to journey deep into dense material in order to experience this nature. If we choose, we can return to our god-like state. Even if we don’t choose or recognize this presently, we will end up there eventually.
Dr. Amit Goswami is one of the world’s leading minds in quantum physics and one of the few who is not afraid to use the term God in relation to physics. His approach is one that definitely recognizes the necessary integration of mysticism and science. After all, there are not many boundaries that science can still attempt to cross without recognition of the invisible worlds of spirit and consciousness. Goswami’s film, The Quantum Activist, as well as his book, The Self-Aware Universe, has reached wide audiences with these concepts. In his Quantum Activist Workbook, a document that is available for study online, he writes:
“In Newtonian physics, objects are determined things made of matter; their movements are determined by material interactions among the base level objects called elementary particles, which make the world bottom up—upward causation. But in quantum physics, objects are not determined things—they are quantum possibilities for consciousness to choose from. This conscious choice is downward causation.”
Downward causation refers to the conversion of wave to particle, or the process by which a conscious observer forces one possibility to become manifest – to become a physical actuality.
“The observer effect leads to the conclusion that the observer’s looking must have some interaction involving nonmatter because material interactions, according to the mathematician John von Neumann’s famous theorem, can only convert possibility waves into other possibility waves; never into actualities. So this nonmatter is the observer’s consciousness, but what is it? If you say it is that which looks, what we conventionally call subject, we get a paradox. Obviously, the subject does not exist without the brain, but without collapse, we only have a possible brain.
Brain requires collapse, collapse requires brain. There is a circularity here, a paradox of logic. This is known as the quantum measurement paradox. Quantum physics, in its considerations of the quantum measurement paradox, tells us what consciousness must be in order to avoid all paradoxes of thinking about it.”
In other words, if consciousness only exists in our brain, and consciousness is required for any quantum possibility to collapse into an object, then where did the brain come from in the first place? It is a classic ‘chicken and egg’ story. The conclusion that has been reached implies the existence of what Goswami calls ‘nonlocal consciousness’. Clearly, he is speaking of the same field that we have been discussing.
“Consciousness is the ground of all being; matter consists of possibilities of consciousness itself. Since consciousness is choosing from itself, this assertion avoids the paradox of dualism—how does consciousness interact with matter without a signal? Quantum physics gives the radical answer: there is no signal. This signalless communication is called quantum nonlocality.
Another tendency is to think that we choose with our individual consciousness. This also gives a paradox: who gets to choose in the case of a dichotomous traffic light [when two people both try to manifest a green light]. The solution leads to the same idea as above: original consciousness, the source of our downward causation, is nonlocal. This source we may call God, following older traditions; but it is objective and we can equally call it quantum consciousness.”
Here he makes the point that since the human constitution is itself a paradox, it must have been conceived by the relationship of consciousness and matter on a much grander scale – nonlocal – infinite. Here is one more way of saying, man is made in the image of the universe or god.
The universe is uniform no matter how far up or down the register of scale you go. Every body in the cosmos is a cell, an organism and also a world. Every one is conscious of itself, feeds off of the consciousness of its world, and with this same living force, also feeds its own cells and atoms.
Goswami says that it is only the subconscious mind that can choose what reality becomes manifest. It is a matter of acknowledging that we must think with this force. The way to develop the strongest powers of manifestation is to tune your intention to the frequencies of nature and seek to do what nature seeks to do. Also, one must note that whether or not this process is understood by the subject, it is happening all the same. Whether or not we realize that we are creating our reality, our superconscious mechanism is making these decisions for us. For this reason, learning to lucid dream, and therefore learning to navigate the afterlife, is the key to recognizing the power that one has within nature – to create one’s own world using conscious will. Alternatively, one can fall into a deep well of depression by keeping their mind in a negative place – constantly bringing more of this negative feeling into their experience.
For a human brain to exist, it must be conceived by a force that is larger or outside of it. This would be the collective mind of our planet, but for our planet to contain this mind, it too must have a ‘brain’ or mechanism that contains its consciousness, which in turn means that it was manifested by a greater version of said field. In this line of thinking, there is no alternative but to assume that at the grandest scale of creation, there must exist an equally grand mind, and these two must have been integrated with each other throughout their entire development towards their current condition. Within this self creating matrix, we are the stewards of our level. We are the ones responsible for creating our own world, just as ants will create their own and galaxies will create theirs.
The Serpent of Light
That which is often called the ‘Gaia Theory’, named for the Greek Earth-Mother, expresses that all life is directly connected, and also states that Earth itself is alive. It would seem quite obvious that all life is connected. Clearly, animals and plants need one another in order to balance the levels of carbon dioxide and oxygen, so it could be said that species often operate like organs of the planet. Rainforests are the planetary lungs. But is it going too far to say that the earth is an organism itself?
The concept of Mother Earth is shown by societies the world over. Pachamama (mother-universe) is the name used in the Andes. In the Aztec tradition, Tonantzin is the Earth-Mother, while Coatlicue is the goddess responsible for creating the stars, moon and sun. She is Ixchel in Mayan, Atahensic to the Iroquois and Maka in Lakota. She is Papahānaumoku in Hawaii and Papatūānuku to the Maori of New Zealand. She is Phra Mae Thorani to the Khmer Empire of Cambodia, Prithvi, Maimata or Bhumi to the Hindus, the Phrygian Cybele, Egyptian Nut, Hebrew Asherah or Eloah, Greek Gaia, and Sumerian Ninhursag. Within all these belief systems she is often the creator and sustainer of the Earth, the bringer of fertility and most importantly, the living soul of the planet. This universally expressed feminine (and particularly maternal) quality of the earth, as opposed to the male solar deities, is a metaphor for a womb, impregnated by the rays of the sun, and giving birth to the beasts of the land; us. We are each tied to the LOGOS through the Earth Mother/Matrix, who is a sub-LOGOS of the Solar Body, which is the sub-LOGOS of the Galactic Body, and so on. In this way, all sentient beings are connected directly to GOD and are actually living aspects of GOD.
In Animate Earth Science, Intuition and Gaia, Stephan Harding writes, “It is at least not impossible to regard the earth’s parts—soil, mountains, rivers, atmosphere etc, as organs or parts of organs of a coordinated whole, each part with its definite function. And if we could see this whole, as a whole, through a great period of time, we might perceive not only organs with coordinated functions, but possibly also that process of consumption as replacement which in biology we call metabolism, or growth. In such case we would have all the visible attributes of a living thing, which we do not realize to be such because it is too big, and its life processes too slow.”
We have already seen that the earth emits energy from a grid-like pattern of points, much like the human body releases energy at certain points identified within acupuncture. Pyramids built upon these sites are like the needles that stimulate the energy currents along these meridians. In the human body, the subtle nervous system all connects to the chakras. The Theosophists claimed that Earth also has chakras and that each one opens with a new Root Race of humanity.
This diagram was published by Robert Coon in Earth Chakras. Alice Bailey, a later author inspired by the theosophical movement, has described these centers to be points on the earth out of which flow spiritual energy that directly affects, even controls to a degree, all life on the planet – a very familiar theme by now. In The Destiny of the Nations she writes;
“These energies which we have been considering are released into our planetary life through the medium of certain great inlets. At this time there are five such inlets, scattered over the world. Wherever one of these inlets for spiritual force is found, there will also be present a city of spiritual importance in the same location. […]
Later, two more points for energy will be added to these but the time is not yet. Through these five places and the areas in their neighbourhood the energy of the five rays pours forth, conditioning the world of men, leading to results of profound significance and determining the trend of events. […]
This entire question of the planetary centres and the energy which they release is naturally of great interest and, could we but realise it, of supreme importance. Some great truth lies veiled behind the tendency of all peoples to regard certain cities and places as holy and as set apart for their spiritual value; they make them the goal of their pilgrimages; in connection with the human being, the same analogy holds good and the heart, for some reason, is regarded as holier and more desirable in its expression than the head. All this indicates an innate recognition by humanity that behind the outer form is ever to be found the intangible, the real and the holy.”
Five of these cities, she explains, are ‘activated’ or stimulated in our day because we are the fifth root race. As the next two root races come into being, the final two centers will open. In Sanskrit the word chakra means wheel. This imagery reminds us that they are not always spinning or ‘turned on’. A practitioner of Kundalini yoga carries out certain exercises in order to lift the base energy through the spine to the cranium, illuminating each of the chakras, and causing them to spin. They are turned on one at a time, just like those of the earth. For this reason, the spiritual unfolding of an individual is mirrored by the same occurrence within the spirit of the planet. When all the centers are stimulated, the physical body is in full contact with its etheric double – one is conscious of multiple realms. Within the planetary model, the activation of the final two centers will allow the entirety of consciousness on earth to reach its full development.
The energy surging upwards through the spine is symbolized by the serpent – Kundalini. Is it possible that this serpent can be found within the earth as well? Drunvalo Melchizedek seems to answer this question in The Serpent of Light.
“The Earth’s Kundalini is always attached to a single location on the surface of the Earth and stays there for a period of about 13,000 yrs. Then it moves on to a new location for the next 13,000 yrs, based upon cycles of 9, or what we call the Precession of the Equinox. When it moves, our idea of what “Spiritual” means changes. It transforms according to the new energies of the future cycle leading us into a higher spiritual path.
The bigger picture is this. The Kundalini has 2 poles, and 1 is in the exact center of the Earth. The other is located on the surface somewhere and anywhere in the world. It is the consciousness of the Earth herself that decides where it is to be.
There is a pulse of exactly 12,920 yrs when the polarity of the Earth’s Kundalini changes to the opposite pole, and it simultaneously changes location on the surface of the Earth. This new location not only rapidly wakes up the people living near this sacred point on Earth, but also sends a frequency into the electromagnetic grids surrounding the Earth. This in turn, affects those consciousness grids in ways that are determined by the Earth’s DNA. We grow according to a set plan and design!
To the few that know of this event and what is occurring all around us, a wisdom is transferred, and a peaceful state of being becomes their inheritance, for they know the awesome truth. In the midst of chaos, war, starvation, plagues, environmental crisis and moral breakdown that we are experiencing here on Earth today at the end of this cycle, they understand the transition and know no fear. This fearless state is the secret key to the transformation that, for millions of years, has always followed this sacred cosmic event.”
At the two extremes of the precessional cycle, (when the celestial poles turns towards or away from the center of the Milky Way, also the Aztec end-date in 2012) this light-energy’s polarity is flipped and so it wanders over the course of fifty years or so until finding a new resting spot. Melchizedek’s writing describes the energy making its move from Tibet (Great White Pyramid) to where it now resides in Peru and Chile and will remain for the next 12,920 years. On its course, it passed through nearly all the continents of the world, finally passing through the United States in the 1960’s (and certainly an illumination was experienced by Americans of the 1960s…) then heading through Central America to the Southern Andes. Melchizedek also relates his own involvement in ‘helping’ the great serpent to make its journey and all these experiences were carried out by countless indigenous tribes who were somehow all aware of the event. Unnumbered nations and individuals contacted one another and came together to carry out ceremonies held once every 13,000 years!
“What has occurred in the world along this path that the Earth’s Kundalini has taken has been almost unbelievable. People from different cultures and countries all cooperating together as though they were coordinated by a higher power simply for the good of human life. Without this spiritual assistance, I believe, humanity will be unable to evolve to the next level of consciousness, crucial to our very survival. […]
There are tens of thousands of people, mostly indigenous people, who have been led by a deep inner guidance, from 1949 to the present, to help bring this unyielding White Snake to its new location high up in the Andes Mountains in Chile, where it now finally resides. Not only is this a shift of spiritual power from the male to female, but it is also a spiritual power shift from Tibet and India to Chile and Peru. The Light of the World that has been nurtured and expanded with the Tibetan an Indian cultures is now completed. Its new reign has just begun in Chile and Peru, and soon it will affect the hearts of all mankind.”
Roughly thirteen thousand years ago (11,000 BC) this energy left Atlantis for Tibet. This is just when the Ice Age was ending, the earth was in catastrophic upheaval, and just before the building of incredible, seemingly eternal, monuments were constructed in the Orient and Middle East. Before that, it resided in Lemuria, another sunken land near the Australian continent. The reason why scarcely anyone knows about this, according to Drunvalo, is because it has never been committed to writing, but only passed down by word of mouth since time immemorial and always kept in secret. Now that the move is finished, it can be freely discussed. For this reason The Serpent of Light is a very unique story that seems to ultimately make sense. Footage of the ceremonies he describes can be seen on the internet.
And so we ask ourselves, is Earth alive? It has a body, it has vital energy, it is made up of countless living cells/organisms and it has a nervous system. One might say that its various climatic regions could represent organs – deserts, grasslands, jungles, oceans, ice caps and so on, which all join together to create a planetary atmosphere suitable for the sustenance of the whole. We consider ourselves alive for possessing these same features on a much smaller scale. In fact, the condition that the earth enjoys is far more grand than our simple view of ‘life’.
Accepting that we truly are guided by a single mind, we are reminded of Goswami’s ‘nonlocal consciousness’. In the conundrum of which came first, the brain or the consciousness, we realize that this relationship is only possible within a multi-tiered reality – one which encompasses both Creator and Creation. Earth is part of that reality; the field in which matter and consciousness converse and converge. Of course, Earth is not the only ‘planetary being’. It is but an electron of a single atom within the Milky Way, which must necessarily follow the same form, and the same goes for the totality of the cosmos. When these metaphysical principles are realized, we begin to live in a different way.
The secret of transcendence and immortality is the answer to a riddle. The majority of humankind has no knowledge of this riddle and therefore has no ambition to solve it. Discovering that there is a riddle to be solved is the entrance to the path. Solving the riddle means lifting the veil and passing by the Guardian of the Threshold. When one becomes enlightened, it is as though they have solved the riddle and now stand in a room full of people who are still racking their brains over it and still more who may not even know that a riddle has been asked. When this answer is found, however, the enlightened one cannot simply tell the answer to everyone, but can only point them towards the experiences that will teach them the answer.
The answer is found only within oneself. All the religion, philosophy and science in the world will not teach one the ultimate truth – that can only be taught by one’s own higher self. By forging a relationship with one’s master, the one above who sits at the wheel of the persona, an understanding of the grounds of reality can be found. For this subtle influence to reach the waking being, all connections to the lower nature must be in perfect balance, neutralizing their own currents, cancelling out the lower sense perception. Only then is one truly conscious – in a neutral position between wakefulness and sleep, life and death, manifestation and conception.
The monotheists are correct in one sense, that there is ultimately one unity-godhead, one single source of power in the universe, but so are the polytheists who identify the infinitely differentiated forms of this power. The scientists are right in saying that nature will indefinitely spiral out new forms and through evolution, constantly expand the fractalized web of life, yet the creationists are right in saying that none of that creative process would be possible without an intelligent designer. The Hermetic Doctrine of ‘As Above, So Below’ would seem to sum up the whole argument.
The core of this universe is life. The grounds upon which this world’s many different manifestations are conceived is the fluid Aether. Life energy, Prana, Chi, is conscious in itself. It inhabits every level of existence from the microcosm to the macrocosm. Our cells are alive, and therefore, to a degree, conscious. They make up our relatively macrocosmic bodies, which are conscious on an entirely different scale. Yet we are the cells of the planet earth, which in its own nature is also alive and conscious. It makes up a portion of a greater solar being. This law continues up to the universal scale.
That is the answer to the riddle – THE UNIVERSE ITSELF IS ALIVE AND CONSCIOUS! The nucleus of the entire created cosmos is GOD. The universe is infinitely divided into splinter cells which are entirely impregnated with this one single divine life. We are microscopic atoms within an infinite being.
Ask yourself the question, “Is the Universe alive?” This is a yes or no question, but either answer may be difficult for one to accept. If the cosmos are dead, then how is it that we simple little humans have suddenly just sprouted up? Life only comes from other life. The universe is either alive or dead, and since we live within it, it must be alive. The research and experimentation cited below will stand as evidence of the fact that all life is powered by the same source – that all life is the same life – that our planet has a singular consciousness which it shares as needed with the lower forms within it. This source is divine nature, and no matter how barbaric, bloody and corrupt our world seems to become, no part of this world would ever overpower the great Mother’s will.
Having worked in the military and CIA, Backster was a leading expert on the polygraph machine, also known as the lie detector. This machine uses electrodes to measure the electrical impulses within the living body. With powerful signals coming in, the needle will show the excitement on a graph. After leaving the CIA, he continued to work with this device as director of the Keeler Polygraph Institute in Chicago before starting his own polygraph consultation business. He was an expert on the machine and he had finally found time to perform some of his more creative experiments.
In February of 1966, he made a breakthrough discovery that would become the focus of his career. One night he found himself working in the lab until 7 am. There were two new plants in his office at that time, and he had the idea of hooking the machine up to one of them. He expected the needle to flatline smoothly with no apparent signals being given off by an obviously unconscious plant. Instead, he saw a healthy movement of the needle as one would expect from a person who has a certain amount of electrical impulses running through him at any given moment.
This was a very strange surprise for Backster. Intrigued, he immediately imagined ways of getting a reaction from the plant. When testing humans, he knew that to provoke a reaction, he had to threaten the subject to some degree. By asking someone if they committed a crime, one could increase the anxiety within the subject and see the response on the graph. So he knew that he had to somehow threaten the wellbeing of the plant in order to get a reaction. After a moment, he had the idea of holding a match under the leaf that was attached to the electrodes.
“The very moment the imagery of burning that leaf entered my mind, the polygraph recording pen moved rapidly to the top of the chart! No words were spoken, no touching the plant, no lighting of matches, just my clear intention to burn the leaf. The plant recording showed dramatic excitation. To me this was a powerful, high-quality observation.”
[From Primary Perception: Biocommunication with Plants, Living Foods and Human Cells]
After a moment, he left the room to grab a match. At this moment on the chart there is a drop in the panicked state, but it resumes quickly when he returns.
“When I returned, the plant was still showing highly visible reactions… I made a feeble pass at a leaf with a lighted match, but by then I was not really into harming the plant. I thought the best thing for me to do was to remove the threat, and see if the plant would calm down. After returning to the matches to my secretary’s desk, the tracing [finally] returned to the calmness displayed prior to the original decision to burn the electroded leaf.”
The many experiments that would follow came to prove that plants can read thoughts and emotions of the life surrounding them. They would react to bacteria being killed by boiling water. They would form relationships with people and react when that person would decide to return to the place that it was kept. Backster left polygraph machines hooked up to plant leaves all the time so that he could try to determine what stimuli they reacted to. He also noticed that his plants would all ‘scream’ when a certain individual came into his lab, a man who mowed lawns for a living.
Soon his experiments included other living things and he found more and more that all biological matter is sympathetic to its environment. At one point, he noticed a reaction from a philodendren plant when he cracked an egg open for breakfast. When he hooked an egg itself to the machine, he saw it violently react as he dropped other eggs into boiling water. His test subjects were contained within faraday cages or shielded rooms to make sure that the signals they received were not electromagnetic, AM, FM or any other wavelength that could easily be shielded. Barriers of this type caused no decrease on the transmission of ideas to these seemingly unconscious beings. Also, it did not matter how close the two life forms were together.
“Distance seemed to impose no limitation. I made observations that suggested that this signal could traverse dozens, even hundreds of miles. It seemed that the signal may not even fall within the electromagnetic spectrum. If not, this would certainly have profound implications.”
Backster then performed an experiment on living human cells. He isolated some cheek lining cells of a subject, Dr. Brian O’Leary. The subject then left his laboratory and went to the airport to catch a plane from San Diego to Phoenix, Arizona. This was a distance of around 300 miles. His watch was synchronized with Backster’s and the cheek lining cells were monitored on the polygraph machine the whole time.
“It was previously agreed that [O’Leary] would keep an accurate log of events which might have caused him momentary anxiety. These included missing a turn on the freeway while returning his rental car to the airport, nearly missing his flight because of the long line at the ticket counter, his flight’s departure and landing in Phoenix, his son’s failure to meet him on time at the airport, and a number of other logged events. Later when comparisons were made by transferring the logged events to the appropriate portions of the chart recording, there was a good correlation between chart reactions and nearly all of the perceived anxieties. His chart became very quiet after he returned home and retired for the evening.”
For those who follow the correct protocol, these phenomena are repeatable, though there are many factors that will spoil the results and which many skeptics would not take into account. For instance, many scientists had a hard time convincing the plants or cells that their intention was sincere. Even a bowl of moldy yogurt can tell the difference between an actor’s insincere thought and genuine intention.
“The idea I have tried to project is that if you are doing consciousness research you may well be communicating your intent, which could alter the outcome of your experiment. The conventional planned research project, by design, has no spontaneity. I have found spontaneity to be a necessary ingredient for prompting meaningful evidence of the existence of a primary perception and the resulting biocommunication manifested. Although a lot of people claim that they have replicated my experiments, they in all probability have repeated the capability to witness spontaneous examples of biocommunication at work. That’s fine; it’s one big step in the right direction. But unfortunately, it doesn’t meet the prescribed repeatability requirements allowing for the accumulation of acceptable empirical data. It does indeed seem that the present day requirements of the scientific method really restrict one’s success in truly understanding primary perception and the biocommunication phenomena.”
Biocommunication was Backster’s term for the conversation that all life seems to be having at any given moment, in any given place. His work seems to describe a literal web of consciousness to which all living beings are connected, and he has shown that this field of energy is not one that has previously been known to science like electromagnetism, radio waves, x-rays or microwaves. Many experiments to follow seemed to mirror this concept, focusing on human consciousness.
Dr. Jacobo Grinberg-Zylberbaum of Mexico carried out studies that expanded upon Backster’s findings. He performed an experiment in which two subjects, generally a male-female couple, would meditate together before being split up into separate shielded rooms. He watched as their brainwaves would synchronize. This could be seen on EEG readouts. In a following experiment, he would flash a bright light in the face of one of the subjects at random times, one hundred times per test. At the moment the flash came, 25% of the time, the opposite subject received an identical ‘brainwave flash’. Control subjects showed no such connection. This experiment was reviewed in a prestigious journal of physics, but soon after, Grinberg disappeared forever.
Dr. Charles Tart of Berkeley performed an experiment in which he gave himself electric shocks and attempted to send his pain to a ‘receiver’ whose heart rate and blood volume were monitored. The receiver indeed showed signs of heart rate increase and a decrease in blood volume without ever knowing when the pain was being sent.
David Wilcock provides many examples of these experiments and phenomena in The Source Field Investigations. He describes an experiment by Dr. William Braud. “Dr. Braud began by performing an experiment in the 1960s in which he attempted to transmit his thoughts to one of his students – while the student was under hypnosis. When Dr. Braud pricked his hand, the student felt pain. When he put his hand over a candle flame, the student felt heat. When he stared at a picture of a boat, the student made comments about a boat. When Braud stepped into the sun, the student mentioned sunlight.”
He also speaks of the work of Sperry Andrews, who also attempted to disclose these experiments to the world. “Andrews mentions some startling facts. More than 500 different scientific studies have proven that human consciousness can affect biological as well as electronic systems […] Schlitz and Honorton explored thirty-nine different studies during which people successfully shared thoughts and experiences – while they were physically separated from one another. The overall probability that these effects were caused by chance alone was less than one part in a trillion.”
Many of these experiments effectively proved that there is more than just coincidence behind phenomena like sensing someone looking at you from behind, thinking of a person just before they call you on the phone, or knowing what someone is about to say before they say it. Surely the reader has experienced situations like this in the past. As many more experiments have come to prove, there is not only a common consciousness that is shared by all life, but also this consciousness reaches outside of the present moment. We each have a memory of the past, but we also have a memory of the future. The further an event may be from the present, in either direction, the less detail we can see of it. This is why some sensitive people will have dreams of things that will come to pass in the near future, as in dreams the conscious state is calm and receptive. Within waking life, however, we can often see something coming before it happens or know what is about to be said. Of course, the direction a conversation is taking will inevitably lead similar minds to think of similar thoughts, but certain experiments remove this potential influence to prove that we do instinctually have a ‘memory of the future.’
For instance, Dr. Daryl J. Bem carried out a study in which subjects were given a test in memorizing certain vocabulary words. Afterwards, he chose certain words at random and had the subjects study them extensively, becoming familiar with their definitions. The words he had selected proved to be the ones that the subjects were able to remember most easily when they took the test – before they had studied. Bem’s papers on this experiment have faced much opposition, but nevertheless, his data speaks for itself.
These experiments mirror closely the theosophical concept of thought forms. This is the idea that thoughts originating in one’s mind will remain in existence, flowing outward like ripples on the surface of a pond. Often they will reflect back to the conceiver and influence the life around them. G. I. Gurdjieff taught that even thoughts are made of material, albeit a much finer material than anything we would think of as solid. In the Theosophical teaching, it is said these thoughts can be literally seen floating around the heads of those thinking them, at least to the viewer who has unlocked certain clairvoyant faculties within themselves. Experiments in collective thought further evince this theory.
Dr. Rupert Sheldrake played a strong role in creating and collecting this evidence. The Co-Intelligence Institute summarized several experiments carried out or compiled by him. In one, Sheldrake used three Japanese poems, one was a meaningless scramble of characters, a second was a made up poem and the other, a traditional Japanese verse. Neither he nor the subjects knew which was which, nor did they know anything of the Japanese language. Even still, the traditional verse turned out to be the most easily learned – the one whose thought form had already existed for a long time – and the random jumble of characters was the most difficult. The list continues…
“Experiment 1: In the 1920s Harvard University psychologist William McDougall did experiments for 15 years in which rats learned to escape from a tank. The first generation of rats averaged 200 mistakes before they learned the right way out; the last generation 20 mistakes…
Experiment 2: In later attempts to duplicate McDougall’s experiments in Australia, similar rats made fewer mistakes right from the start. Later generations of rats did better even when they were not descendants of the earlier rats…
Experiment 3: In the 1920s in Southampton, England, a bird called the blue tit discovered it could tear the tops off milk bottles on doorsteps and drink the cream. Soon this skill showed up in blue tits over a hundred miles away, which is odd in that they seldom fly further than 15 miles. […] By 1947 it was universal throughout Britain, Holland, Sweden and Denmark. […] German occupation cut off milk deliveries in Holland for eight years – five years longer than the life of a blue tit. Then, in 1948 the milk started to be delivered. Within months blue tits all over Holland were drinking cream…”
The concept that thought forms can become collective, or that once something is known, all living things on the planet have access to that knowledge, is also reflected in the phenomena of identical discoveries and inventions being made simultaneously. This is a common occurrence. For instance, we might remember that Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha Von Dechend both discovered the coded existence of high wisdom within ancient myths at the same time. This is not an exception but tends to be a rule. More often than not, inventions and ideas will be conceived by multiple minds that are isolated from one another. One of the most convincing experiments to demonstrate that knowledge can be collectively shared was carried out by Monica English, a student of the University of Nottingham. Though it was never published in an academic journal, Sheldrake wrote of the study:
“The crossword puzzles she used were from the London Evening Standard, not the New York Times, and in the experiments she tested groups of subjects before and after the crossword puzzles were published in the Evening Standard on February 15th 1990. Each group of subjects also did a control crossword which had been published ten days earlier… She found that … the subjects performed better after the crossword had been published in London, relative to scores before publication. This difference was significant at the 5 percent level… The reason Monica England thought of doing this experiment in the first place is that there is a folk-lore among people who do crosswords, especially difficult ones like those in The Times or the Daily Telegraph, that these crosswords are easier to solve if they’re done the next day or in the evening rather than on the morning of the day they are published, suggesting a possible influence from others who have done them.”
Perhaps the reader is wondering if this field is related to other phenomena discussed previously. Is it connected to the power radiated by pyramids, the ability to prophecy future events, the concept of a global grid of consciousness, or Edgar Cayce’s ability to diagnose patients from hundreds of miles away, or to recede into times of remote antiquity? Cayce reminds us that his abilities are dormant within every human being. He describes the process of retrocognition (remembering the distant past) as the reading of the Akashic Record – the collective memory of the universe. Upon this ‘field’, every single event that has ever occurred in this reality has left an impression, and therefore, can be reviewed by the seer. Akasha is an ancient sanskrit term meaning ether, or essence of all things material. It is the first substance created from the astral world. It is material, but the finest of material, the least dense, and therefore, it is the borderland between 3D matter and the unmanifest realm. It is within this field that thought forms exist, say the theosophists, and it only stands to reason that this is the frequency in which biocommunication takes place. It is a matter of etheric resonance.
The process by which Cayce travelled to a location on the earth and witnessed the actual events occurring there has come to be called ‘remote viewing’. In a sense, this is a means of projecting one’s consciousness to a point in space and using ones higher body to observe – using the all permeating ‘thought-material’ to sense, to think, to see and hear.
Though research on parapsychology has been limited in the United States, it was taken very seriously when the military and CIA realized that Soviet research in these fields represented a growing threat to US intelligence. Remote viewing then became a very high priority. The 2009 film, The Men Who Stare at Goats tells a fictional story about the confidential research carried out by the military in this time, though nearly all the historical aspects of the film were based in truth. U.S. Navy SEAL Captain L. R. Bremseth served in the Navy for nearly thirty years. He published an essay regarding potential uses of remote viewing within military procedures. It was published in 2001 under the title, Unconventional Human Intelligence Support: Transcendent and Assymetric Warfare Implications of Remote Viewing.
“In 1969, while participating in a scientific conference at Big Sur, California, a leading Soviet scientist presented a research paper that, when subsequently analyzed by the U.S. intelligence community, indicated the Soviets were involved in some form of “distant influencing” with mind control implications (Swann Chapter 2: 6). The Soviet’s organizational and funding commitment to paranormal, or psychic research, and the lack of any corresponding U.S. effort, created a perceived “PSI” gap. Further, this gap and its corresponding potential for Soviet breakthroughs were deemed to pose a national security threat that the United States could not afford to dismiss out of hand, inasmuch as the research was being funded and directed by Soviet security services. Specifically, the U.S. intelligence community was concerned that the Soviets may have developed the ability to replicate psychic phenomena and to harness its potential. This threat, in an area of research that had historically been disregarded by American academia and scientific communities, prompted American intelligence services to begin accelerating efforts for a counterpart U.S. Program.”
The Biofield Measurements Study initially began with SRI’s remote viewers describing objects in envelopes and boxes, similar to the initial testing of Swann. These methods, however, evolved into what became known as “outbound remote viewing.” In outbound remote viewing a “target person” would travel to a location (generally one in the San Francisco Bay area) which was unknown to the remote viewer who remained within the confines of a SRI laboratory along with a monitor. The outbound target person was sent to various, randomly selected sites under strict protocols designed to prevent biased or contaminated results. At a designated time the remote viewer would attempt to describe the target person’s location. Normally these descriptions were both oral and in the form of drawings intended to depict features of the target site (Puthoff 66: Swann interview). Upon the experiment’s completion, the remote viewer and all other participants traveled to the target site so that the remote viewer could see first-hand how close his or her mental images actually matched the target (Targ 79). The experiment was conducted on a double blind basis meaning the target site remained unknown to both the SRI experimenters and remote viewers alike. Using double blind protocol procedures to preclude artifactual results, SRI employed independent judges to evaluate the remote viewer’s success and accuracy. Additionally, the CIA employed its own members as contract monitors to observe the ongoing SRI research to ensure strict protocols and procedures were followed so as to preclude any potential chicanery (Puthoff 66).”
Bremseth then describes one of the first operational uses of remote viewing:
“During the following year, 1974, the CIA presented SRI with a long distance remote viewing experiment intended to test more fully the operational utility of this method of intelligence collection. The CIA requested that SRI, employing long distance Scanate procedures in a manner similar to the West Virginia site experiment, provide information about a Soviet site of ongoing operational significance. SRI employed Pat Price for the experiment. The CIA provided the map coordinates for an unidentified research facility in Semipalatinsk, USSR, a highly secret Soviet nuclear munitions site, where work was thought to involve development of particle beam weapons. Price accurately described the facility and the highly sensitive work that was being accomplished there. In particular, he sketched a giant crane-like structure that literally rolled over the tops of the buildings it straddled. … Additionally, Price described ongoing work inside one of the buildings that involved problems the Soviets were experiencing in welding together thick metal gores for the construction of a sixty-foot sphere (Puthoff 69-72; Targ 82-86). According to Targ “We didn’t get any feedback on this for more than three years. We discovered how accurate Price’s viewings were when this sphere-fabricating activity at Semipalatinsk was eventually described in Aviation Week magazine, May 2, 1977″ (Targ 82). Unfortunately, by then Price had died.
Russell Targ observed Price during the above experiment. They were both in an electrically shielded room of SRI’s Radio Physics building, located approximately ten thousand miles from Semipalatinsk. Targ knew nothing of the Semipalatinsk site so as to guard against the potential for cueing or telepathy (Targ 82; Kress 7). Regarding this experiment, Targ stated “The accuracy of Price’s drawing is the sort of thing that I, as a physicist, would never have believed, if I had not seen it for myself (Targ 82). While Price had significant success with this site, he also reported a good deal of information that proved to be inaccurate according to some of the CIA analysis (Kress 7-9). Significantly, this result was accomplished during the first-ever operational test of remote viewing for a Soviet site, and was not one of the best-ever results achieved throughout the duration of the program (Puthoff 69).
Price’s performance during the Semipalatinsk experiment, with its mix of accurate and inaccurate results, was fairly representative of remote viewing in general. As subsequently discovered, some early remote viewing inaccuracies may have resulted from how protocols were employed. For example, during an early SRI outbound experiment, Price proved extremely accurate in describing a San Francisco Bay area site. Two water tanks that he had reported as being at the site were not there, however, and this observation was dismissed as inaccurate. Years later, SRI researchers discovered, via an old photograph of the same site, the two missing water tanks had stood in exactly the locations described by Price, but many years prior to the actual remote viewing. As a result, the SRI team realized it was therefore crucial to specify exactly when in time the remote viewing experiment was to be focused (Puthoff interview).”
It is very interesting to note that alternative points in time were accessed. Does it seem so hard to believe that Edgar Cayce was capable of returning to ancient Egypt when we find that, though academia denounces paranormal research, the U.S. Military spent at least 25 years researching the phenomena and with successful results? Nothing more needs to be said in regard to military investments and applications of psychic methods, since the freedom of information act has revealed documentation disclosing fragments of its research. Experimentation of this kind became public domain in 1989. The research was apparently halted in 1995, though, like unethical human experimentation, we would not expect the CIA to tell the public that they are still capable of astrally flying invisibly into their bedroom while they sleep.
The principle underlying remote viewing is directly related to this ‘universal mind’ – the conversation of nature. By turning off the mechanistic everyday consciousness, we may use our higher bodies to travel anywhere and use our higher senses to observe the foreign areas. This phenomena has been proven to exist countless times over, and it is not new. I have found multiple accounts describing the Egyptian initiation in which the initiate is isolated within the great pyramid but asked to report on the events occurring in every corner of the kingdom. The art of astral projection has been in use since at least the time of Egypt. It has been practiced in India, as well, at least since the Vedic Period, and in its shamanistic form, the technique has been alive as long as the human race. Even Aughra, from The Dark Crystal, describes her astral travel through the cosmos and we can see her illuminated third eye.
In a more general sense, the idea of a collective ground of thought is the basis of nearly every spiritual tradition we have covered. The concept of Bramhan, Nirvana, Nous, Logos, Samadhi, Aether, Akashic Records, Eleusis, Grand Pymander and quantum nonlocality all speak of this reservoir of consciousness. The above title, Mitakuye Oyasin, is a term central to the religion of the Lakota of South Dakota meaning, ‘we are all related’. The ancient Mayan greeting, In La’kech, literally translates, ‘you are another me’. The term Namaste, similarly, implies the recognition that on a higher level, all people are but one person. The various creation myths we have analyzed have all, without exception, described an infinite mind that takes control of the physical cosmos. Simply put, the concept of universal mind was common knowledge to all the ancient peoples of the earth, yet today one may be ridiculed for expressing such a theory regardless of the fact that it is true.
