I had several people ask me about the quote I used in my recent post In Search of Nothing. The quote compares the spiral in a snail’s shell to the various patterns in nature/creation, as follows:

“The spiral in a snail’s shell is the same mathematically as the spiral in the Milky Way galaxy, and it’s also the same mathematically as the spirals in our DNA. It’s the same ratio that you’ll find in very basic music that transcends cultures all over the world.” – Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Nature has patterns everywhere, like fractals or the Fibonacci sequence for example. So, the question is how does science explain such phenomena? 

Math has always been used by scientists to try and describe the universe. Cosmologist Max Tegmark believes that’s because the universe, itself, is actually part of a mathematical structure. In that vein, physicist James Gates Jr. has stated that the fundamental nature of the universe contains 1s and 0s, just like computer programming utilizes.

So, what to make of the universe, then?

MIT professor Seth Lloyd believes that “The universe is a physical system that contains and processes information in a systematic fashion…. it really is a computer as scientific fact….” So, if the universe is a computer or a computer program that uses advanced algorithms that even super computers do not possess… who programmed it…

and exactly what does that make us?

 

Epilogue

Noted astronomer Carl Sagan believed that “The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”  According to Sagan, then, our purpose in life must be to allow the universe to know itself. Knowing obviously implies consciousness and intelligence. So, I believe that eventually science will be forced to turn to metaphysics to try and understand creation and the immutable laws of nature… since the answers lie beyond space and time.

 

“Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe that was created out of nothing and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.”  – Arno Penzias, physicist

 

“The spiral in a snail’s shell is the same mathematically as the spiral in the Milky Way galaxy, and it’s also the same mathematically as the spirals in our DNA. It’s the same ratio that you’ll find in very basic music that transcends cultures all over the world.” – Joseph Gordon-Levitt

 

Science has been in quite the conundrum for some time now. Physicists have been attempting to reconcile two completely different theories, quantum mechanics and general relativity, without success. The discovery of a Theory of Everything has evaded all the greats, including Einstein. Obviously, there is a fundamental flaw in the science somewhere.

The problem starts with the fact that science today basically consists of formulae written on a chalkboard. As Nikola Tesla once said, “Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.” So, when scientists develops issues with their formulae, they invent things like universal constants, dark matter and dark energy. Based on their calculations, scientists believe that 85% of the universe is missing! In other words, their formulae only describe, at best, 15% of reality. Some theory.

In order to describe the universe, you have to first know how it was created. The problem is that science says that it all began with a Big Bang…out of nothing. Now, that doesn’t make a lot of sense. Obviously, there must have been something that caused the universe to come into existence. Therefore before the Big Bang, something else had to have existed so that there was a cause and effect in how the universe began. Otherwise, there was an effect with no cause. Thus, the expression “creation out of nothing.”

Science’s problems with the issue of creation is rooted in the assumptions that they make when formulating their theories. Here’s a few of those assumptions that scientists generally make:

  • Space-time exists

Noted physicist Nima Arkani-Hamed believes that, “Space-time is doomed. There is no such thing as space-time fundamentally in the actual underlying description of the laws of physics.  That’s very startling because what physics is supposed to be about is describing things as they happen in space and time.  So, if there’s no space-time, it’s not clear what physics is about.” In other words, if there is no space-time, then all scientific theories are wrong.

  • There was no intelligent design in the creation of the universe

Geneticist Richard Lewontin offered this explanation on the topic: “Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.” Note: Lewontin is an atheist and so his comment about not allowing a Divine Foot in the door has to do with denying the existence of God, or any intelligent design for that matter. In other words, ideology preempts science.

  • Science considers the universe to be a closed system

The problem is that scientists only consider those things that are within the known universe. However, physicist David Bohm believes that the source of our reality is beyond space and time. One of the reasons for his theory is that science has discovered an all-pervasive sea of quantum energy in the universe. It is generally referred to as a Zero Point Field. This sea of energy is made up of virtual particles which appear and disappear out of nowhere. So, this is Bohm’s version of creation out of nothing, which amounts to creation from something outside of the universe.

  • Science does not understand the role of consciousness

The Copenhagen interpretation is generally considered the default theory of quantum mechanics. It states that the quantum wave function collapses due to a conscious observer making a measurement of a physical system. Yet, science has not been able to include consciousness in its own theories, or perhaps they don’t want to as that would inevitably lead to a discussion about the Divine Foot (see above). However, as physicist John Wheeler said, “The universe does not exist ‘out there,’ independent of us. We are inescapably involved in bringing about that which appears to be happening. We are not only observers. We are participators.”

 

It was noted cosmologist and astrophysicist Martin Rees who said, “Life is the most mysterious of all the wonders of creation because atoms have been assembled in such a way so that they can ponder their own existence.” The key word here is the word “ponder” because only conscious beings can ponder, and scientists don’t seem to understand why. Instead, they are still scribbling formulae on their chalkboards in search of creation out of nothing.  No doubt, Tesla is rolling over in his grave.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ET Go Home

08/04/2020

 

Ever since the supposed crash of an unidentified flying object in the New Mexico desert in 1947, the UFO community has been awash in fantastic claims about aliens. It’s a fascinating subject that seemingly won’t go away. For example, Forbes Magazine recently ran an article which says that, “Documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden conclusively prove that the United States has been ruled by a race of tall, white space aliens who also assisted the rise of Nazi Germany in the 1930s.”

I bring this issue up because of a recent article in the New York Magazine which states that “the Pentagon has reportedly found off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.” Right on the heels of that article, Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla, tweeted that aliens built the pyramids. Well, I don’t know about aliens but I can assure you that ancient Egyptians, who could not even read or write, did not.

Even scientists have jumped in on this subject from time to time. Francis Crick, who won the Nobel Prize for discovering the double-helix structure of DNA, popularized the theory of Directed Panspermia which states that life began on other worlds and was brought to Earth by intelligent beings. Then, there’s NASA scientist Dr. Steven Dick who published a paper in the journal Acta Astronautica entitled The Post Biological Universe saying that AI is the logical evolutionary path for the human species.

However, the story that I keep hearing from intelligence circles is that AI controls the matrix.  Oddly enough, the roots of that belief go back to the Gnostics of biblical times. The Gnostics believed that an evil AI race they refer to as archons controlled the planet. Who knows, maybe ET never went home.

 

“Our sun is one of 100 billion stars in our galaxy.  Our galaxy is one of billions of galaxies populating the universe. It would be the height of presumption to think that we are the only living things within that enormous immensity.” – Wernher von Braun

 

 

 

 

 

 

Secret Science

07/19/2020

 

Science has a secret, a secret that they have been keeping for over two hundred years. It was first discovered in 1801 as a result of scientific research that is now generally referred to as the Double Slit Experiment. That experiment changed everything that science thought it knew about reality, namely:

That consciousness is the most basic, the most elemental building block of the universe.

 

As the Double Slit Experiment showed, an observer changes the outcome of the experiment. That is, our consciousness affects how the universe functions and, therefore, how it ultimately evolves. As physicist John Wheeler put it, “The universe does not exist ‘out there,’ independent of us. We are inescapably involved in bringing about that which appears to be happening. We are not only observers. We are participators.” The reason for that is that we are an integral part of a unified field of consciousness which extends throughout the universe, a universe that is a sea of quantum energy which is constantly creating reality.

Further research on the Double Slit Experiment led to the Copenhagen Interpretation by physicists Heisenberg and Bohr. They postulated that all possible realities initially exist simultaneously. This led to the creation of a new field of science called quantum mechanics. For a mind-bending experience on quantum mechanics, you should check out the famous Schrodinger’s Cat thought experiment in which a cat is possibly both dead and alive at the same time!

However, all sorts of people have reasons for not telling the general public about  consciousness (and the power of the mind). For atheists, it would mean acknowledging that there is “intelligent design” in the universe; for deists it would mean that although there is a creator it is not the god of their holy book; and for the elites it could very well mean losing control over the masses. So, instead we have secret science for those that have eyes to see and ears to hear.

 

Epilogue

Secret science isn’t just confined to a discussion about consciousness either. Genetic research has also had its issues. For example, in 1987 when genetic research was in its infancy, molecular biologists Alan Wilson and Rebecca Cann popularized the Out Of Africa evolutionary theory on the origins of man. However, genetic research has come a long way since then. The latest genetic research from Wilson and Cann says that life began in Australia, not in Africa. A separate study showed that European haplogroups did not descend from African haplogroups. Yet, the scientific world is silent about theses findings. So, it just may be that life began in Australia, mate.

 

“The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”  – Carl Sagan

 

 

 

 

 

“Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.” – Michael Ellner

 

More and more, every day, up is down and down is up. Now, right is wrong and wrong is right. Pretty confusing wouldn’t you say?

Our reality is so distorted that it is difficult for the mind to wrap itself around the world presented to it. The government lies about anything and everything and the media reinforces the lies. Historians write about the past but much of it is a fiction since the victors are the ones responsible for the history books.

As for science, the scientists realize that we live in a shadow world. As astrophysicist Arthur Eddington put it, “In the world of physics…the shadow of my elbow rests on the shadow table as the shadow ink flows over the shadow paper…the frank realization that physical science is concerned with a world of shadow…” Why are we unaware of the shadow world? The main things to understand in that regard are the following: (1) Our physical senses have a very limited range of perception. In effect, we live inside a bubble limited by what our physical senses can actually perceive; (2) The mind cannot distinguish between what is real and what is vividly imagined. For all we know, dreams are real and life is a dream; and (3) The decisions that we make are made mostly by the subconscious mind, without our knowing that was even the case. The subconscious mind runs our lives and the conscious mind scurries about trying to make sense of it.

Orwellian doublethink pervades the shadow world. For example, politicians use terms that are pleasing for the voters to hear, not unlike motherhood and apple pie, but in reality these expressions mean something totally different, something that the voters would never vote for at all. George Orwell called this doublethink. It occurs when someone accepts two mutually contradictory thoughts as correct without ever being aware that there was even a contradiction in terms. For Orwell then, “war is peace and freedom is slavery.” The establishment uses doublethink themselves to deceive the public. Case in point is the politicians trying to convince us that you have to engage in endless wars to ensure peace.

Orwell warned us about the shadow world and the elites controlling it. He said that the elites “…learnt how to keep their position permanently – by cultivating ignorance among the other classes and by constantly surveying them through the Thought Police. Part of this strategy included the maintenance of a state of continual warfare…to keep a state of emergency always present as the surest guarantee of authoritarianism.” The objective of the civil war raging in the country is a police state. Orwell saw it coming and wrote about it in !984.

 

Epilogue

You may think that you’ve heard it all, but what if I told you that in the shadow world a city can actually be a State and what you think is a country might really be a corporation. Doublethink that!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Life Is From Life

07/04/2020

 

It’s a basic principle of science – omne vivum ex vivo. That is, all life is from life. Louis Pasteur proved it over 150 years ago and countless experiments and research have since confirmed it. Life does not spontaneously arise from non-living material. After all, there is something that animates human beings (as opposed to rocks).

Humans are a unique life-form in the cosmos. We are conscious. We can ponder our own existence. As Carl Sagan put it, “The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.” So, Sagan realized that the universe was conscious and that we, as conscious beings, evolved from a conscious universe.

However, there is something beyond the universe. In the Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot described how this all works, “Our brains mathematically construct objective reality by interpreting frequencies that are ultimately projections from another dimension, a deeper order of existence that is beyond both space and time….” In other words, the source of life is outside of the universe.

By contrast, science likes to claim that the universe began with a big bang and that everything was created out of “nothing”. The reason for this illogical reasoning is that if it was not created out of nothing, then, by definition, it had to be created out of something, and something conscious at that. So, you can understand why both atheists and creationists alike have chosen not to go there.

In order to answer the age-old question of what meaning our lives have, we have to first determine whether or not there is a source, a first cause so to speak. Our lives either have meaning that relates to such a source or they have no meaning at all.  Rather, we would simply be cosmic accidents – random blobs of electro-magnetic energy in a universe that was created out of nothing. In such case, Louis Pasteur would likely be rolling over in his grave.

 

“The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment.”         

    – Bernard d’Espagnat, physicist

 

 

The Coronavirus Pandemic War continues to rage on, except now some doctors admit that they can’t even tell us if it’s really a coronavirus. The problem is that COVID19 doesn’t act like a coronavirus. Here’s a link to a related article (https://thefederalist.com/2020/05/08/icu-doctor-what-i-wish-people-knew-about-coronavirus/).  

Coronavirus patients are actually suffocating to death, which is something a coronavirus is not known to do. Ventilators previously thought to be a critical part of the coronavirus treatment are not being used because they are not effective, maybe because it’s not a coronavirus. In fact, patients on ventilators die at a much higher frequency than patients not on ventilators.

An article from PJ Media, talks about the fact that almost half of the COVID19 fatalities happened in nursing homes. The reason is that only old people with preexisting conditions have a mortality rate that is even worth discussing. This from the article: “Professor Mark Woolhouse, an expert in infectious diseases in Scotland, led a study that determined current lockdown restrictions could be easily lifted as long the most vulnerable populations are left protected. According to Woolhouse, for the non-vulnerable population, the coronavirus is comparable to a ‘nasty flu.’” Here’s a link to the full article (https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2020/05/09/staggering-nursing-home-residents-account-for-a-whopping-43-4-of-covid-19-deaths-even-though-theyre-less-than-1-of-the-u-s-population-n389480).  

So, what is COVID19 then? Well, the research is ongoing but it appears that COVID19 was man-made. Here’s a link to a related article (https://www.zerohedge.com/health/more-evidence-mounts-covid-19-may-not-be-natural). According to Dr. Andrew Kaufman, COVID19 is not even a virus.  It’s something called an exosome. According to Dr. Kaufman, “They haven’t been able to successfully isolate the COVID19 virus, so we don’t know if it really exists, because they haven’t been able to prove it.” If true, germ theory would literally go out the window. Here’s a link to an interview of Dr. Kaufman (https://truthcomestolight.com/2020/04/10/dr-andrew-kaufman-unmasking-lies-revealing-truths-about-the-pandemic/).  

Usually, health officials learn about new diseases by monitoring the stats. They look for something called “excess mortality.” However excess mortality never happened because world and U.S. fatalities, even with the coronavirus, are about the same as they’ve been in recent years. As late as January 29, 2020, Dr. Fauci was telling the Today Show that the coronavirus was nothing to worry about. Two weeks later, he said that there would be about 2 million deaths in this country and that we had to shut it all down. The whole reason for locking down the nation had to do with faulty projections based on a flawed computer model, rather than on excess mortality stats. As a result, Dr. Fauci is getting a lot of pushback. At a recent coronavirus task force meeting, Dr. Deborah Birx had this to say, “There is nothing from the CDC that I can trust.” Here’s the links to related articles: https://www.redstate.com/elizabeth-vaughn/2020/05/10/833722/ and https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/05/nothing-cdc-can-trust-dr-birx-tells-off-cdc-director-claims-covid-19-mortality-rate-inflated-much-25/.

 

Epilogue

However, even though Dr. Fauci has admitted that the initial projections were seriously flawed, he still says that things can’t go back to normal until a vaccine is developed. Interestingly enough, one of the things that scientists have discovered is that COVID19 cannot survive in sunlight or warm temperatures.  Here’s the link to the article: https://justthenews.com/video/heres-why-sunlight-destroys-covid-19-quickly-say-scientists Seems, then, that we don’t need a vaccine after all.

I saw a movie the other day by the name of Alien Code.  It was sort of like The Matrix. It reminded me that there are similar philosophical perceptions of life that pop up in various places – in books, in movies and even in science, among other places.  Here’s just a few examples:

  • “If you’re seeking answers to alter your understanding of reality, does that not make your world a projection rather than a perception?” – from the movie Alien Code

               vs.

“Our brains mathematically construct objective reality by interpreting  frequencies that are ultimately projections from another dimension, a deeper order of existence that is beyond both space and time.”  – Michael Talbot, The Holographic Universe

               vs.

“If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.” – from the movie The Matrix

 

  • “Even with an eternity of self-reflection, man cannot understand the difference between actuality and illusion.”  – from the movie Alien Code

               vs.

“The human mind, no matter how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe.” – Albert Einstein

 

  • “Do you see the world as you imagine it or are you observing what is already there?” – from the movie Alien Code

                vs.

“We are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.” – Bill Hicks

 

Epilogue

With all this focus on the question of reality, it’s easy to lose track of what is really important in life.  In the movie The Matrix, you can select between the red pill or the blue pill.  The choice is yours. So, consider this: Life is not about the outcome, it’s about the choices that you make. 

 

“I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.” – from the movie The Matrix

What’s the implication of  “I know that I know nothing,” a saying derived from Plato’s account of the Greek philosopher Socrates?  Well, if arguably the smartest man doesn’t know, why do we think that we do?

Specifically, this can be applied to science and our understanding of the universe.  It was none other than Albert Einstein who said that man would never be able to grasp the universe. Einstein believed that reality is an illusion.  Max Planck, the father of quantum theory, explained why that is so when he disclosed that matter does not exist. Yeah, if matter does not exist, that’s a real dilemma. For what is it then that our physical senses perceive? Einstein’s illusion?

The main problem in understanding the universe is that we can’t see the bigger picture.  That is, we an infinitesimal speck in a universe, in a sea of universes which exist in other realities/dimensions. However, we cannot observe beyond space and time.  Our understanding of the universe is limited to our observations of causality which is most often limited to the effect (and not the cause).  We cannot tell what the source is or where it’s located.

Here’s a couple of gems, though, that science has come up with:

  • Our DNA is self-organizing, self-directing and self-replicating, and far more complicated than our most advanced supercomputers… almost a life form unto itself.
  • Everything in the universe, including ourselves, is nothing more than probability waves that coalesce into particles…only after they are observed. 

What we have, in essence, is an intelligent, conscious and ever-evolving universe.  No wonder Einstein said that man could never understand it.

“All that there is – is consciousness, a circle of life with no beginning and no end.  We are all connected, part of the same infinite energy that exists beyond space time and at the same time interpenetrates the physical world.”  – TheEthicalWarrior, Who Moved My Cheese (Universe)

They say that life mimics art.  What if I told you that life also imitates a flashlight? Sounds too preposterous, right? Let me explain.

Picture a dark room. Pitch black.  Movement cannot be detected even if it exists.  Now picture a flashlight in that room. The flashlight, of course, has an energy source (a battery).  So, we all know what happens when the flashlight is turned on…photons of light are emitted from the flashlight and as a result the room becomes illuminated.  Where there was only darkness, now there is light (life).  You could say that life begins and that the source of that life is the flashlight (battery).

So, what happens when the flashlight is turned off.  Did light (life) end? 

The answer is that life, like the flashlight, exists in a state of potentiality. Sub-atomic particles exist in all possible states simultaneously. They have distinct properties only after they are observed (by human consciousness). It gives new meaning to what physicist John Wheeler said: “The universe does not exist ‘out there,’ independent of us. We are inescapably involved in bringing about that which appears to be happening. We are not only observers. We are participators.”

The process by which consciousness creates life has been well-known within scientific circles for almost 100 years.  However, it’s a dirty little secret that the masses were not supposed to know about…but, of course, now you know.

Epilogue

Even religion has its own version of life mimicking a flashlight, as follows: “Now the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.  And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” – Genesis 1: 2-3
