Nature has much to teach us about the world we live in starting with the universal laws that govern us all. Physicist James Gates Jr. says that these laws, which describe the fundamental nature of the universe, operate using computer codes. That may give us a real clue as to our origins.

However, I personally like to observe nature when trying to understand why things are the way that they are; things like bees, butterflies…and worms. Yes, worms; well, sort of. I liken man’s evolution to that of the worm who lives inside of an apple.

This particular worm lives a very cozy life. It is safe and warm inside the apple, with a seemingly endless supply of food. Life is very uncomplicated and the worm is pretty certain about its “universe.” Then, one day, the worm takes a bite out of the apple and in the process creates a hole to the world outside of the apple.

When the worm poked its head out through the hole, it received a wake-up call. Its universe had been completely transformed. There was a world outside of its world; a world totally different from the one that it lived in and thought it understood. The farther the worm crawled out of the apple, the farther it could see into this new world. It could literally see as far as the eye could see. With that, the worm suddenly realized the implications. It had a dilemma. Did it go back inside to the cozy, safe world of the apple or did it venture out into a brave new world?

Like this worm, man, and all life, does not evolve gradually but rather in sudden bursts; for example, the Cambrian Explosion. If you don’t know what that is, you should look it up. Like the worm, man can’t unlearn any new things once he discovers them.  The mind is like a rubber band. That is, once it has been stretched to a new dimension, it can never go back to its old shape.  So, even if the worm crawled back inside the apple, it would forever know that its universe extended outside of the apple.  It would not be possible to pretend that the apple was all that existed.

So, too, science is experiencing its own Cambrian Explosion. Our knowledge about the world we live in is increasing dramatically. As layman, these new scientific discoveries are well beyond our ability to comprehend them. However, like the worm, we have been exposed to the reality that our world could be vastly different than what we previously believed.

As a result, the old paradigms no longer work. That is, there is something outside of the apple (universe). We may not know what that something is but it is pretty obvious that, like the worm, our perception of the world has to be completely rethought.  We have been exposed to a new worldview based on Dr. Gates’ computer codes or the holographic universe of physicist David Bohm or the simulated reality of Nick Bostrom. The question I pose for you is this: What are you going to do with this information?  Like the worm, you have a choice. Either way, your mind has already been stretched to a new dimension.  Welcome to evolution.


“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.”   – Arno Penzias, physicist and Nobel laureate


Where is the mind (the seat of consciousness)? Apparently, science can’t find it, at least not where most would expect it to be (inside the body). Here’s what is really happening.

To be sure, the mind is not in the body – scientific experiments confirm that.  At the risk of oversimplifying, you can think of the mind as being in a parallel world, with a link to this world. This would be not entirely unlike the scientist and the area of his laboratory where the experiments are conducted (in isolation).  The scientist (mind) resides outside the laboratory while the A.I. (a body with a brain) is inside the laboratory monitoring the experiment with its sensory equipment.

Of course, it shouldn’t be totally surprising that the mind is not in the body since we are not of the body.  We are electromagnetic energy and our electromagnetic energy field extends outside of the body.  The body is a container of sorts with the ability to broadcast and receive.  As such, it can be thought of as a conduit which constantly broadcasts and receives information (that is floating in the universe).

The body is loaded with sensory equipment but that sensory equipment cannot comprehend the high-tech reality that we call “our world.”  The movie The Matrix was a fairly accurate portrayal of the universe.  That is, it’s digital, it’s multi-dimensional….an engineered world of simulated reality using binary code.

Perception is reality it’s true, but reality is not perception. Our senses deceive us into believing that the world described by our physical senses is real. Quantum physics has proved, however, that matter is only a projection of energy.  The world is really energy, not matter.

With respect to the question of what are we doing here in the matrix, the native peoples knew far better than modern man.  Our technology only stifles our exploration of the world.  As the Australian aboriginals say, “We are all visitors to this time, this place.  We are just passing through.  Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love…and then we return home.”



I thought that if you liked the last video from Dr. Bruce Lipton that you would like this one as well.


Here’s some of his key points:

  • We are not in this body
  • The body is like a television set
  • We are being broadcast into this body
  • This is a virtual reality suit
  • We also broadcast (our experiences) out of the body (back to the source)
  • We’re living the lives of programs
  • If you don’t like the program, you can rewrite it.

Take a minute and reflect on what this could mean.


“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.”  – John Wheeler, physicist

There is a question about the universe which no one seems to ask.  That is, if the universe is conscious, then which came first, the universe or the consciousness? The answer must be that the consciousness came first, but boy does that open up Pandora’s Box.

So, we have all these existing theories above the universe, from the Big Bang to black holes with talk about strange stuff like dark matter and dark energy.  Then, we have the dilemma of why these scientific theories can’t explain the universe or can’t even explain rather elementary things like, say, gravity or why some scientific theories disagree with other scientific theories. So many theories with literally no real answers.

Here’s the thing about consciousness, though.  Consciousness does not require Big Bangs or black holes or any of the other existing scientific theories for that matter. While consciousness does not explain what we are doing here, it does explain what the universe is doing here.  The universe is here because consciousness created it.

So, exactly where does that lead us?

For one thing, it would be impossible to develop a scientific theory that explains everything unless you have experienced everything (and understand it).  So, complete understanding of all that is …is an impossibility. Pure science is pretty much at a dead end anyway as John Horgan discusses in his book The End of Science.  Therefore, all the exotic theories discussed in science today are simply an attempt to stay relevant…which is pretty much impossible under the circumstances.

For another thing, it means that we are not a physical life form. There are, then, only a few possibilities of what we are. We could be part of a computer program which is simulating life or we could be the consciousness that is, in effect, creating all life (including, perhaps, a simulation) or we could be part of a unified field of consciousness which includes everything in  the universe.  If we are part of a computer simulation, there still has to be a higher level of consciousness (even, maybe ourselves in another form) that is creating the simulation.  In any event, consciousness has to be the source of reality.

Bottom line: Consciousness is the creator of all that is and therefore, all that is… is consciousness.

Of course, there is no way to exactly define what consciousness is.  Suffice it to say, though, that consciousness is the creative force in, and of, the universe.  For some, perhaps that’s enough; for others like me…..


“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.” – Martin Rees, astrophysicist

P.S. “Ponder” you understand, meaning that the universe is self-aware and intelligent.




What are you?  Who are you? What’s your purpose in life? Everybody wants to know.  Well, here’s a few clues.

There are a few recurring mathematic/geometric patterns in Nature. For example:

  • Pi – The ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter (3.14159265359…)
  • Golden Ratio – An irrational number found by dividing a line into two parts so that the longer part divided by the smaller part is also equal to the whole length divided by the longer part (1.6180339887….).
  • Fibonacci sequence – A sequence where each number is the sum of the two preceding ones. It is pervasive throughout nature, art, music, biology, and other disciplines.

Pi and the Golden Ratio are significant because they produce a result that cannot be exactly calculated (at least not in this universe).  That is, they are infinite numbers in a finite universe.  They indicate that something exists outside of this universe.  Further, all three show that our universe has intelligent design.

Physicist James Gates Jr. has stated that scientific theories which describe the fundamental nature of the universe contain embedded computer codes. Gates was talking about the 1s and 0s found in the software of modern computers. Think programming.  Again, intelligent design.

Einstein believed that time was an illusion; that the past, present and future exist simultaneously. This kind of “reality” can only be found in video games or movies. Many movies/TV shows were made with a message to the viewer about the true nature of reality, including The Matrix, The Truman Show, Blade Runner and Westworld.


The Game of Life

So, let’s start playing the game of life. First, what’s the purpose of life?  I would suggest that the purpose is to exit the game. Think of Tron.

Why Tron?  Well, in Tron the main character exists outside the game and subsequently becomes trapped inside the game, and then has to find his way out again.  So, the object of the game is to find the door, to find the exit from the game of life. Why? Well, because the programmers of the game require it. Remember, intelligent design.

What is reality like inside the game? So, if our reality is a video game/simulation what can we deduce about it? First of all, this is not a material world. The universe simply consists of information. It’s digital. For those of you who argue over a flat earth, the earth is neither round or flat, it’s holographic.

So, how do we experience this reality? Actually, in our mind. Everything is a function of consciousness. Even Einstein and Planck realized that.  Our physical bodies have sensory equipment that send information about the nature of our surroundings to the brain where that information is “translated” giving us an “interpretation” of reality. The interpretation of reality, based on sight, does not take place outside of our bodies but rather in the brain where there is no light whatsoever. As for thinking, science has demonstrated that the vast majority of thinking is done by our subconscious mind without our awareness. These apparently are the rules of the video game. When you play the game of life, you operate based on your “perception of reality.” Of course, you have no idea that you are inside of a video game.  All you have to go is your perceptions to go on.

So, where is the door? Here’s another clue. Remember, perception is everything. Think of yourself as being the game itself, instead of being trapped inside. Games actually can be quite interesting when you know the rules…and are aware that it’s actually a game.


“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
