Science to Sage e-Magazine’s are Themed, designed and produced by Karen Elkins This issue is about consciousness in various forms. After doing the last few issues relating to light, water and the nature of our electric universe the question now is how do we begin to witness and understand the journey called life. How do we harness and direct the currents of our sensations. To know we are a beings of light charged wiith life is also to know there is an Intelligent Force/God behind this universal design. Ancient sages of the ages had this understanding down to a science. So in these pages you can review where science has soul. Meet the contributors to Science to Sage on the radio the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month at the awakeningzone.com. Hosted by me, Karen Eklins. This is where these pages come alive.

EXCERPTS from The Middle Point by

is

Your

changing, images,

moving, thoughts,

impressions, motives, desires, and dreams are all moving around, vibrating in every possible direction. If you can observe this vibrating motion without attachment, you are in the state of witnessing. Watchfulness is the greatest spiritual key to enlightenment. The deeper your watchfulness becomes, the deeper your connection with your awareness becomes.

Watchfulness is the fullness of

witnessing Art and Subject is Ivan Rados


a new consciousness will arise Watchfulness involves the present moment right now and right here. Whether you are at work, at home, shopping, or on vacation, you carry this moment with you. Whatever you are “doing,” it’s your mind that’s “doing” it, not you. Your mind is your “doing,” and every “doing” is always external and bombarded by thousands and thousands of sensual distractions. The present moment, the now, contains your “being.” This is always internal and filled with undisturbed stillness and calmness. Non-temporal, it’s also non-local, non-spatial, and flowing. It is witnessing watchfulness. Watch with awareness the entirety of a situation. Whatever is happening, or whatever you are doing, just be alert, desireless, and in undistracted spaceless silence. Don’t become preoccupied with explanations and expectations. Nobody can predict outcomes, since ultimately outcomes are static and can’t exist. Don’t participate in your observations. Through watchfulness, you will automatically go beyond polarities and be in the state of witnessing. If you spread watchfulness throughout your day, a new consciousness will arise, and the whole of existence will rejoice.


Watch every act you do, every breath you take, every thought that passes through your mind, every emotion that surfaces out of your darkness, every reaction to things, every desire that takes possession of you, every gesture your body unconsciously creates—walking, talking, eating. Move in your life continuously watchful. Watch external passing phenomena, anything that comes and goes. Create the opportunity for everything to be watched. The whole point is not to get attached to what you are watching. If you forget to be watchful, don’t become miserable or feel guilty. Remember, it’s natural. The moment you remember, once again watch. When you watch, clarity arises; and out of your clarity, gracefulness arises. With watchfulness, energy isn’t going to the mind and its thoughts. The mind is becoming less stable, less concrete, and more transparent. As thoughts start disappearing, clarity arises. The mind becomes no-mind, a mirror of what Is. Witnessing involves balancing the extremes, or dualities, of life. In this balance you will find true awareness because your awareness exists in the now. Continue watching even when your body is dying. Watch the death of your body. When your body dissolves in the earth, the witness will become part of the universal whole.

It’s all about

watchfulness


To be in a state of wholeness ..., you need to witness everything you are thinking, feeling, and doing— without identifying with anything. When you understand that “what I’m observing isn’t me,” thoughts disappear and only witnessing remains. Let’s say that sadness or anger are passing through your experience. There’s no need to identify with the sadness or anger—no need to say, “I am sad” or “I am angry.” You can experience the energy of anger, but there is no way for you to be sad or angry. You are always in your center, an ultimate witness.


When you witness thoughts, the thoughts disperse. The mirror just reflects. When there is nothing to watch, nothing to witness anymore, then the real transformation will happen. The witnessing energy turns upon itself, witnessing the witness. Only after all objects and subjects are removed—only when there is nothing to prevent it, when there is no object to object and subject to subject to your witnessing—then the witness comes around to the source, which is itself. Just remain watchful, witnessing everything that’s passing by. With witnessing, you are finding the inside mirror. Things come, are reflected, and move on. The mirror remains empty, uncontaminated by the reflection. The inner fact is that whatever is passing over you isn’t you. You are the ultimate witness reflecting What Is.

What’s the Difference Between Awareness and Witnessing? Awareness is beyond two dualistic realities, requiring detachment from the mind’s objective and subjective activities. It’s the unity of subjectivity and objectivity in a single unit: the oneness. Awareness is the total act of now in oneness. In awareness, there’s no movement—no doing and no polar opposites. Awareness is wakefulness, the transcendence of duality. Wakefulness is the way to life witnessing nothing, because there’s nothing to witness and no one who is witnessing. Neither is there anyone who is being witnessed. So, awareness involves the transcendence of witnessing. It’s the unity of subjective and objective consciousness.

the mirror just

Reflects


In watchfulness, there’s a doer You have to use the mind to go beyond the mind, and you need to be in the conscious act of now. In unconsciousness, the act of now becomes the mind’s unconscious activities, with thoughts shifting and conflicting in polar opposites—that is, between subjective and objective realities, positive and negative thinking, in the illusory time-space of the past and future.


In watchfulness, reality splits between watching objectively and watching subjectively. Through witnessing, you build a bridge between the subject and the object of your watching, and consequently you are in relation with subjective and objective watchfulness. Through the unity of two watchfulnesses, you come into witnessing; and through witnessing the witness, you come into your awareness. The bonding of two into the one can only be done through the choiceless awareness of witnessing. This is the meeting between love and meditation at the middle point. Polar opposites don’t oppose or conflict with each other. Only opposite thoughts are in conflict with each other. Whatever thought is in your mind, the opposite thought follows like a shadow. Thoughts divide because they contain the opposites within them. Excitement contains misery, love contains hatred, success contains failure, sanity contains insanity, liking contains disliking. Thoughts are a thick layer of discontent to keep you disconnected from existence. This separation is your unconsciousness. In existence, the apparent opposites are joined together, which means they are complimentary. Existence exists through the harmony of duality. The secret key to enlightenment is the balance, which is found in choiceless, desireless awareness. Choiceless awareness is creative discontent, which values the insecurity of the unknown. Creative discontent is sensitive intelligence—which isn’t the same as the mind’s discontent, since the mind can’t be creative. The mind’s discontent is based on desire, which involves the hope of contentment in the projection of a better future. It’s discontented with what is—discontented with the present moment, now.


Witnessing Is Self-Remembering The path of mental discontent is simple, convenient, and comfortable. You just have to say “yes” to the social consensus imprinted in your mind full of desires. You needn’t do anything. Thoughts will do everything for you. You have only to say “yes” to others, to the authorities of the state, the church, and so on. If you become conscious in unconsciousness, you experience creative discontent from non-existence. Now you become the witness, with choiceless awareness, uniting the opposites in transcendence.


Self-remembering is a methodless method that leads toward unity with the whole. When all your unconscious activities become the conscious act of now, and all your doing has been replaced with non-doing, you remember One-Self and have attained awareness. In awareness, you aren’t aware of your awareness. To be aware of your awareness, distance is needed.

The Buddha calls self-remembering “right mindfulness.” Krishnamurti calls it “choiceless consciousness.” The Upanishads call it “watchfulness.” The names are different, but they all mean the same thing. By remembering the self, a paradox arises. The self disappears, while remembering stays. The self and remembering can’t exist together. In the same way, selfconsciousness (which is of the mind), self, self-existence, and consciousness can’t be together. In the mind, there is no real existence—only the self, the ego. Consciousness is always conscious of something, and there is always someone who is conscious. The mind is the source of all duality, all separation, and all division between subject and object, activity or inactivity, consciousness or unconsciousness. In order to attain ultimate awareness, you have to remain in the state of witnessing every moment of the now. You have to act in the now with awareness. The now moment is nothingness, so you have to act as nothingness, doing nothing, with no movements, just witnessing in stillness.


So consciousness is a quality of the mind Witnessing is the tool of consciousness, used to disconnect itself from the mind and reconnect with ultimate awareness. This ultimate awareness is the transcendence of consciousness—spaceless space beyond the mind. We can’t talk about consciousness and unconsciousness as two separate states, but more like in degrees: you can be more or less conscious. There’s no such a thing as darkness, only different degrees of light. Through witnessing, you increase your light within.


one conscious

vibration When your consciousness becomes all that is, and there are no more unconscious traces in your being, no more conscious witnessing of objects and subjects, so that two realities becomes one reality, you become pure light. Your old mind is no more, but is clear of all thoughts. All vibrations in the mind become only one conscious vibration, so that there’s nothing to witness anymore. Consciousness turns its total attention to itself, witnessing one vibration—that of the witness. The more you become conscious, the more you come to be a witness. So consciousness is a method to achieve witnessing, and witnessing is a method to achieve awareness. The mind itself becomes spaceless no-mind, a hollow bamboo. You aren’t attached to the mind anymore, but are in detachment. You become free and attain nothingness. Only through transcendence of the mind do you come to nothingness. Nothingness can never become an object of thoughts. When one is nothingness, there is nothing other than nothingness. One isn’t even aware of nothingness. There’s no witness to witness nothing. Being nothingness, one is simply alert. Alertness goes beyond witnessing. In witnessing, there is slight tension, a slight effort, because you are witnessing movement. The way of the mind is the way from one extreme to another. The mind is either rightist or leftist, either capitalist or socialist, either conservative or democratic; it never stops in the middle. Democrats hate liberals; and while hating liberals, they build momentum to become the liberals at some point.


“Isms” are accepted ideologies Just contemplate this: the USA started out as a capitalist society and is turning into a socialist society. Russia started out as a socialist society and has ended up as a capitalist society. The movement from one extreme to the other extreme is fascism. For example, the idea of patriotism is the foundation of fascism. There’s no difference between patriotism, fundamentalism, socialism, communism, capitalism, nationalism, skepticism, and atheism, because all are based on ideology. In ideology, individuals don’t exist, only groups, nations, corporations, and collectives. Ideology is part of the conditioned, conceptual mind, conditioning other minds. “Isms” are accepted ideologies all over the world, with different formulations, but with the same rule: create conflict and divide consciousness. One part becomes superior, while the other part becomes inferior; one part is holy, and the other a sinner. You are right and others are wrong.


extreme

Tension Extremes create tension. The tension is in the movement between pleasure and pain, as the mind chooses one or the other. The moment you stop choosing between heaven and hell, you are with your consciousness—and you are immediately at the middle point. Jesus says, “Truth liberates.” But how does one attain truth and be liberated? Witnessing involves emptying your mind of all ideologies, “isms,” beliefs, concepts, and thoughts. Only in emptiness is truth reflected. When you meditate, love grows, becoming compassion. When you love, meditation deepens and you share compassion. If you follow the path of meditation, let love be the criterion. If you follow the path of love, let meditation be the criterion. If you follow the middle point, let compassion be the criterion. When love becomes the center of your meditation, and your meditation becomes a touchstone of your love, you have come home. You are in the middle point of existence. Witnessing Is Participation in Life with Alertness To be in a state of watchfulness is to be in action through inaction. It’s to be totally present in life with compassion. Witnessing is all about allowing life to just be in the “being.” It’s to be in the world, but not of it. As you embrace existence with your awareness, your awareness is in turn embraced. Allowing your life to breathe gently with ease, so that you live in a relaxed way, enables your consciousness to become harmonious. Clearing the mind of clutter allows your consciousness to become clear. Opening your heart to All-That-Is allows your being to become accepted and loved by existence.


repression to

expression By accepting the world, your consciousness embraces the whole. Where there’s no consciousness, there’s bound to be psychological and pathological suppression, inhibition, and defeat. If there’s no consciousness in your being, there’s repression within the mind, which makes being impossible. Every expression of life is a perfect opportunity to be a witness. However, only an alert witness can move the energy of repression to expression. With the energy of expression, you open the portal of the now so that consciousness can awaken. Don’t run away from opportunities, even if they present themselves as problems, illness, or difficulties. They are just pointers to the real. Express everything you are experiencing with your awareness. Expression means allowing everything to go through the mind, but bringing awareness to it, being attentive. Remain in your suffering, but do not be your suffering. Watch! Every situation presents you with a challenge. Life is possible only through challenges. Life is possible only when you embrace both polarities. Life is possible only when you have both extremes together. When you bring both sadness and happiness together with your awareness, life will happen to you. When you bring pleasure and pain, good and bad together as if they were nothing, then you can realize your potential for being. You can plunge into sleep and become a doer, a victim of illusions; or you can become a witness, living life fully and blissfully. There are infinite possibilities in each moment, but only one opportunity. This moment now is the greatest adventure that you can take, but only those who are courageous become the witness.

Healing:

The Journey into Consciousness Health is a state of consciousness. It has nothing to do with age, illness, or even the health of the body or mind. Whether you are aware of it or not, every step you take towards healing is a step towards consciousness. Everything you do in life is part of your healing journey towards the ultimate health of your true nature.

Only in our thoughts is there happiness and unhappiness, right and wrong, birth and death. When we stay identified with this everchanging play of opposites that only exists in our mind, we fail to see what is permanent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the eternal presence of our being. As we get closer and closer to our being, we gradually move away from the duality of the mind and transform our ego into consciousness.

All our physical and psychological ailments point us to where we need to focus our attention so we can transform our unconscious energy into consciousness. Usually, we believe that our pain is a misfortune that needs to be fixed, but in fact, all pain (physical, mental, and emotional) is a necessary step towards becoming conscious. When we try to avoid pain, loneliness, and death, we also avoid finding our eternal being.


When we are ready to heal from an unconscious belief or behavior pattern, we experience symptoms such as pain, anxiety, depression, and ill health. If we try to fix something on the outside instead of trying to find out the cause of our ailments from within, we continue to suffer. When we let go of our identification with who we think we are our body and DNA literally change.

In a very real way, all pains are growing pains.


Healing into c o n s c i o u s n e s s is the most arduous task that can ever be undertaken. There are many fears, obstacles, and ups and downs along the way. You need courage and trust to face the darkness of your unconscious. If you persevere and stay committed to your awakening, the journey will become easier and you will even begin to enjoy it and be excited by it. No matter how intense your pain and suffering, if you stay devoted to your healing journey, you will undoubtedly come face to face with the miraculous universe that abides within your own being.

Composing Consciousness by Edward Cowie

T

owards the end of an often tempestuous and tortured life, Beethoven lost the sense of hearing. To a person deeply and passionately concerned with qualities and properties of sound this would seem to be the ultimate tragedy and catastrophe. But it wasn’t! The idea of a totally deaf composer has stimulated several cinematic scenarios and a lot of romantic writing by musicologists since his death in 1827. It’s hard enough to imagine how a composer composes at all let alone a deaf one.

It’s an odd paradox that eavesdropping outside Beethoven’s studio, one would have heard a lot of noise. Those of us who know his music might at any one time have heard a piano being played; conversations with the self; fragments and distorted moments from a now all too familiar masterpiece. Beethoven’s sketches show an artist who was compelled to refine, test, and measure sound rather like a sculptor hammering and chipping away at a huge piece of marble, (Michelangelo), in search of a form inside.


Edward Cowie

The paradox becomes manifest if we were to eavesdrop outside the studio of Mozart when all we could hear would be the scratching of a quill pen on paper, and nothing more. Finding the music for Beethoven was a process of analytical enchantment, but for Mozartand in his own words, “ the music comes to me already born’.

“Cowie is the Leonardo of our time” - The Observer

Explained perhaps all too easily, Mozart seems to have become conscious of the music already complete whilst Beethoven had to evoke, conjure, evince, compel and compose musical forms from very unformed and germinal ideas.


Inspired

by the Nature World


During composing, both artists were clearly conscious of what music could be, but were their consciousnesses of the same kind?

It seems that they were not. Even the expression ‘during composing’ suggests that there is a consciousness of making music and a consciousness of making something else. The truth is that the act of composing is not likely to be something that happens only when the artist is sitting in a studio. We know that Mozart spent some 7 years travelling in a coach (he was a child prodigy who was ruthlessly exploited by his father- who took him on endless tours of the courts of Europe in order to earn money for his son’s stunning performances at the keyboard), and there’s no doubt that a lot of his earlier music was composed in that coach.


A comparison between the working methods (we might even say modes of thinking) does suggest that there might be different levels and types of consciousness. One of the most mystifying things about a composer is that he or she seems to be able to be conscious of something that doesn’t yet exist! Actually, of course this is also true of all forms of inventors, scientists and artists alike. Perhaps we need to think of something that might be called preconsciousness which I guess could also be described as an apprehension of something. Ravel was once asked how he composed and his answer was “the music comes to me from the air”. Debussy was asked the same question and replied “Sir-go and look at a sunset”. The radical modernist Stravinsky described the process of composing Le Sacre du Printemps as being in a state where “I was the instrument through which the Rite passed”. All three statements suggest several generic forms of consciousness, and all three suggest that consciousness is not always a matter of brain activity. At least, I’m suggesting that composing can be something where, rather than the music being composed by the brain, the brain is composed by the music.

Cosmic Consciousness

Edward Cowie


Music is not always generated as the result of a self-organising organ. Neither is it always a form of self-regulation. Consciousness is as likely to be subject to quantum mechanics and the uncertainty principle as matter and energy is! To compose literally means to put into order yet Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m suggesting that the Standard Model for physics can be applied to the mind and action of a composer. All composing is about finding something from almost nothing. One of the most profound discoveries that Beethoven made was the potential of making very large-scale forms from tiny musical sound-cells.

Elements

All composing is about finding something from almost nothing.

Drawing from Nature

A State


He made this discovery in two ways. The first was via the use of memory, memory that is, of his own earlier music. Memory, sometimes called hindsight, is a collective of past experiences and is far easier to be conscious-about than of something that has not yet happened. The second method was about letting-go of memory and allowing the mind to engage with the future. Past music makes new future music possible. But in a Darwinian sense, only the fittest music survives and one key aspect of that fitness is its capacity for evolution and change. Can I put this in a still more mystical way? Composing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about a process of realisation of sound but rather of something far more incorporeal- it is about the architecture of time, space and matter. Had we actually been able to ask Beethoven or Mozart how they composed, the answers would have been different of course. Beethoven might have answered by means of a lot of very hard work whilst Mozart might have burped, giggled and said, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the faintest idea! What is creation but the movement of pre-manifestation to one of realisation. A metaphorical sense of composing might suggest that new and uncomposed music lies buried deep in

the unconscious. If this is true then finding the music means either diving into the unconscious or peeling-back some of the layers between the unconscious and the now. Here we might find materials that lie outside or beyond time. I might as well have written about consciousness and time in fact. But the more I have written on composing consciousness, the more I realise that it is a Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Box that, when opened, reveals both music and consciousness as infinitely varied, ephemeral, layered, faceted, and mercurial. Twice during writing this short piece, musical ideas popped into my brain as well as notions of needing to eat some breakfast. But I have to return to the possibility that none of these things popped into my brain. If there is truly a cosmic music (physics has always suggested that there is), the human brain is a cosmic instrument (not a consciousness instrument) capable of receiving cosmic music and by thinking and imagining- capable of realising that universal song is always there and waiting still to release new possibilities!

1

The 5th symphony is based on a tiny musical cell of two different sounds- the first being repeated 3 times and the second being held at an indefinite length at the opening (twice!).


I think, therefore I am I am, therefore I think I think I am therefore I think I think, therefore I am- I think Therefore I think I am , I Think Am I(?) ? I am Therefore…….

Let me finish by composing with a maxim from Descartes, one of the most famous (and notorious) in the history of discovery about consciousness. Play with it as I have and perhaps you’ll see that nothing is fixed and that so far as consciousness is concerned- musical or otherwise- it remains in a state of possibility and not confirmation.

It is beyond our imagination to conceive of a single form of life that exists alone and independent, unattached to other forms. —LEWIS THOMAS

If youʼre a survivor of multiple failed relationships, you may wonder why you keep trying. I can assure you that you donʼt persist just for the (sometimes short‐lived) good times. And you donʼt persist because of TV ads featuring loving couples on tropical islands. You persist, despite your track record and despite dismal divorce statistics, because you are designed to bond.

Human beings are not meant to live alone.


Our Drive to Bond There is a fundamental biological imperative that propels you and every organism on this planet to be in a community, to be in relationship with other organisms.

Whether youʼre thinking about it consciously or not, your biology is pushing you to bond. In fact, the coming together of individuals in community (starting with two) is a principle force that drives biological evolution, a phenomenon I call spontaneous evolution, which I cover in depth in the book of the same name.1 There are, of course, additional biological imperatives designed to ensure individual and species survival: the drive for food, for sex, for growth, for protection, and the ferocious, inexplicable drive to fight for life. We donʼt know where or how the will to live is programmed into cells, but it is a fact that no organism will readily give up its life. Try to kill the most primitive of organisms and that bacterium doesnʼt say, “Okay, Iʼll wait until you kill me.” Instead, it will make every evasive maneuver in its power to sustain its survival.

by Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D.


When our biological drives are not being fulfilled, when our survival is threatened, we get a feeling in the pit of our stomach that something is wrong even before our conscious minds comprehend the danger. That gut feeling is being felt globally right now—many of us are feeling that pit in our stomach as we ponder the survivability of our environmentally damaged planet and of the human beings who have damaged it. Most of this book focuses on how individuals can create or rekindle wonderful relationships, but in the last chapter Iʼll explain how the energy created by “Heaven on Earth” relationships can heal the planet and save our species. The social nature of harmonious animal societies can provide fundamental insights directly applicable to human civilization. One great example is an ant, which, like a human being, is a multicellular social organism; when you take an ant out of its community it will die. In fact, an individual ant is really a suborganism; the true organism is actually represented by the ant colony. Lewis Thomas described ants this way: “Ants are so much like human beings as to be an embarrassment. They farm fungi, raise aphids as livestock, launch armies into war, use chemical sprays to alarm and confuse enemies, capture slaves, engage in child labor, exchange information ceaselessly. They do everything but watch television.”... As for human communities, we can fend for ourselves as individuals longer than a single ant can, but weʼre likely to go crazy in the

process. Iʼm reminded of the movie Cast Away in which Tom Hanks plays a man who is marooned on an island in the South Pacific. He uses his own bloody hand to imprint a face on a Wilson Sporting Goods volleyball he calls “Wilson” so he can have someone to talk to. Finally, after four years, he takes the risky step of venturing off the island in a makeshift raft because heʼd rather die trying to find someone to communicate with than stay by himself on the island, even though he has figured out how to secure food and drink—that is, how to survive. Most people think that the drive to propagate is the most fundamental biological imperative for humans, and thereʼs no doubt that reproduction of the individual is fundamental to species survival. Thatʼs why for most of us sex is so pleasurable—Nature wanted to ensure that humans have the desire to procreate and sustain the species. But Hanks doesnʼt venture off the island to propagate; he ventures off the island to communicate with someone other than a volleyball. For humans, coming together in pairs (biologists call it “pair coupling”) is about more than sex for propagation. Instead of cursing our bad luck in relationships, we need to recognize that our efforts at bonding are a fundamental drive of Nature and that these bonds can be cooperative and harmonious. We need to heed Rumiʼs sage advice: “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”


When we start living in harmony with Nature (and with ourselves), we can move on to creating The Honeymoon Effect in our lives, where relationships are based on love, cooperation, and communication.

by Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. “What a pleasure to read Bruceʼs entertaining romp through the science of loving relationships! Bruce makes it clear that couples can learn a lot from the quantum physics, biochemistry, and psychology that promote conscious, loving relationships. Great reading for anyone who wants to bring a loving relationship into his or her life—or maintain one that already exists.” —Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., author of The Big Leap and (with Dr. Kathlyn Hendricks) Conscious Loving

are alive.


Describe what you mean by the “Honeymoon Effect”? Honeymoon Effect defined: A state of bliss, passion, energy, and health resulting from a huge love. Your life is so beautiful that you canʼt wait to get up to start a new day and thank the Universe that you are alive. Discussion includes character of experience, i.e., exuberant health, over‐flowing energy, life so beautiful – canʼt wait till next day to have more = Heaven on Earth. In your book you state that the Honeymoon Effect is Natureʼs way of informing you that you are successfully fulfilling a primal directive of our innate biological imperative. What is a biological imperative and how does it affect our lives?

Biological Imperatives represent the fundamental “drives” of Nature to survive, both as individuals and as a species. Drives for food, water, protection, for example, are drives for an individualʼs survival. The drive to reproduce is the drive concerned with the survival of the species. Biologists have no idea where drives are “programmed,” however, drives are the overriding control of our behavior. Why did Nature design the honeymoon experience to be a life‐filled with joy and happiness? The higher up the evolutionary ladder the more complex organisms become. Greater complexity leads to extended development times past birth before individual is self‐sustainable. Nature brought love and pleasure into the bonding of adults to keep them together for the duration of


Discuss your concept that we have a built‐in, innate compass that unconsciously guides us in our quest for a mate. (Good vibes‐bad vibes) The body has a sensory system that responds to invisible energies (vibrations). The design of the system is to assure survival by reading the invisible energy signals from and environment (quantum physics –all matter vibrates with characteristic frequencies. We experience extremes of the “compass” as good and bad vibes. What are signs that honeymoon experience may be coming to an end and how can we avoid that? The signs are momentary losses of love due to behaviors that do not support harmony. Discussing these harmony‐disturbing behaviors with knowledge of the existing developmental cognitive programming can resolve issues. Without this knowledge, “differences” of opinions become defensive arguments. To end the “differences,” one can either reprogram their own responses or help the other reprogram their behaviors (only applies when both partners are aware of the existing nature of the developmental “programming.” Poetry, music and literature frequently allude to the “chemistry of love.” Is there really a “love‐ chemistry” in our biology? And if so, what can it tell us about our relationships? (neurotransmitters/spin balance) There are many behavior‐directed neuro‐ secretions, each of which controls specific aspects of relationships (they include: dopamine, oxytocin, vasopressin, serotonin, growth hormone, cortisol, stress hormones, inflammatory agents, etc.) Also, there is a unique story concerning “Why noble gasses donʼt get married.” Noble gasses are the only elements in the periodic table that donʼt form chemistry (i.e.,

bond). This is a story about balance and relationships in the physical realm. Explain how reprogramming of the subconscious mind can enable us to live out the fairy tale ending of “Happily Ever After.” When the conscious mindʼs wishes, desires, and aspirations are programmed into the subconscious mind, we are always living the honeymoon whether we are operating from consciousness (5%) or from subconscious (95%). How can we identify the programs in the subconscious mind that control our lives, especially since our fundamental behavioral programs were already being “downloaded” before we were born? 95% of our lives are driven by subconscious programming ... your life is a “printout” of your subconscious. No need to review past! Why does falling out of love hurt so much? Love is an expression of a chemical “addiction” to dopamine. Just like any other drug that gives you a “high,” withdrawal from dopamine is the same experience as a person withdrawing from heroin. While we can manifest a vision for the “new” lives we desire, we are still living in the current reality. What steps should we take to manifest the reality of that vision? How do we get there? First, we must identify and reprogram self‐ sabotaging, limiting and disempowering behaviors (this is a discussion about how minds learn and difference between conscious and subconscious. Then we move into the world with “new” habits, which in the end, change the course of our lives. Also, important to consider: “Fake it till you make it,” is a key strategy.


When was the time I found out that there was a Honeymoon Effect? When I started dating Margaret and the grand experimentâ&#x20AC;? living Happily Ever-after. We proposed when we let go of the future and began to â&#x20AC;&#x153;live for the day. The experiment is still in progress and the final results are not yet available (we have no date for Happily Ever After ...), but after 17 years the results have been totally consistent ... we are still on our Honeymoon!


When did I know that the Honeymoon Effect had something to do with the cells? Like almost all people who fall head‐over‐ heels in love with someone, the honeymoon experience is associated with exuberant health and vitality. This is not a coincidence, for the neurochemical cocktail released by the brain of those in love contains agents that enhance cell growth. The secretions of a brain in love, when added to cell cultures, induce robust growth. This is a physiological consequence that also encourages people to stay in love. What about the implied importance of “I Love Myself” as a belief? This is one of the most important attributes for a successful honeymoon experience. If one does not love themselves, then it does not compute that others could love you. If you see yourself as “unworthy,” then those that would love you would obviously not be that worthy themselves. Most people will not test positive for the belief statement “I love myself.” This is because of the childhood experiences where most children are programmed by parents to perceive that they are “not good enough.” Unfortunately, this becomes true for individuals whose parents were like coaches, trying to give incentive to their children by criticizing them with hope that their chiding will encourage the kids to perform better. Unfortunately, children under 7 will not be conscious enough to understand their parents intention, but will just record their negative words in the subconscious mind. This means that 95% of the time the programs being played by these individuals are self‐ sabotaging.

E H P O R T S A T A C T S PO I A J O E V I T A R O B A COLL Lydia Lunch is one of such people that I wish to learn from in a lineup that includes visual artists, classical Indian musicians, kirtan bands, singer-songwriters, yoga psychologists and yoga masters from India.

Bringing together a collective of

diverse women artists who seek to inspire others by demystifying the practical application of a variety of creative methods, we seek to offer simple tools which can easily be incorporated into expanding the individual’s own unique form of expression.

I met Lydia Lunch in San Francisco in 1998 and showed her artworks, along with Jane Handel’s, in a two-woman show at a gallery I owned and ran at the time. Lydia has always been a great inspiration for me. I admire her fierceness and the way that she expresses ANYTHING she wants. I mean, really, how many fierce women do we have on the planet? Although her work is edgy and can be intense, I am always amazed that she does it and does it so well, going all the way in her process. Her journey from teenage No Wave rocker and artist to her current works has brought her to this point, and this point includes tremendous compassion. She wants to help women who are locked up inside through the healing power of art.


So I decided to host Lydia Lunch's POSTCATASTROPHE COLLABORATIVE 

OJAI, May 24-27

to see what will happen in a  group of women working with Lydia and other  artists as

powerfully share their concepts and art. Of course, some women will show up and wish to observe, journal and be inspired. This will be fine too. Or, some women I know are coming without an idea of what to do, but will jump in and collaborate with others, or will let their own creative “download” happen at the workshop and then run with it. Many of the women will want to bounce off ideas with others and create a sacred space to collaborate and dynamically grow their ideas to the full. There will be many surprises and spontaneous outcomes. Stories, songs and dreams will be shared, elaborated and brought to light and with it,

great

fun,

freedom

inspiration.

Come to my creative and sacred space and see if it inspires you as it has inspired me. Kelly Luscombe Bea

LIFE: HEAVEN OR HELL? It was cold and rainy the day I went to prison. Although it was in the middle of the summer, there was nothing warm about the place. There was no heating, no color, no plants, no life.

Simply a dark, barren, harsh

concrete trap on an island made of rock in the middle of the San Francisco harbor.

The

place

was

Alcatraz.

Fortunately, I was only there as a visitor.

But even being there for an

afternoon gave me a glimpse of what life must have been like for thousands of prisoners who lived there before the prison was closed. It was a cold, dark, haunting place that allowed few, if any, of its residents to escape.

About the Movie Trailer

People v. The State of Illusion. This feature length film, directed by award winning Director Scott Cervine, is set in the notorious “Old Main Prison” of the New Mexico State Penitentiary, and tells the story of Aaron Roberts, a single father who is arrested and tried on charges following an incident that claims the life of a woman. Aaron is convicted at trial and sent to the state penitentiary, and his daughter becomes a ward of the State. While there, an attorney learns of her plight and the story of her father, and decides to represent her in an innovative and emotionally-compelling case against the State. Written and produced by Austin Vickers, this movie explores the science and power of perception and imagination and the prison walls of habitual thought and behavior that we all create, and documents the evidence that answers the central questions of this provocative film, “what is real?” and “can we really change?” It is an inspiring and emotionally compelling movie that will wake you up to the power of your imagination, encourage your hope, and elevate your spirit.

A sensory system is a part of the nervous system responsible for processing sensory information. A sensory system consists of sensory receptors, neural pathways, and parts of the brain involved in sensory perception. Commonly recognized sensory systems are those for vision, hearing, somatic sensation (touch), taste and olfaction (smell). In short, senses are transducers from the physical world to the realm of the mind where we interpret the information, creating our perception of the world around us.[1] Transducers are used in electronic communications systems to convert signals of various physical forms to electronic signals, and vice versa.

In higher organisms the eye is a complex optical system which collects light from the surrounding environment, regulates its intensity through a diaphragm, focuses it through an adjustable assembly of lenses to form an image, converts this image into a set of electrical signals, and transmits these signals to the brain through complex neural pathways that connect the eye via the optic nerve to the visual cortex and other areas of the brain.

Buckland Understanding consciousness not only allows us to understand who we are but also the fundamental principles that underly the universe.

What is Consciousness? To answer the question â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is Consciousness?â&#x20AC;?, we need to understand our relationship with it. And to understand that relationship, we need to understand how we develop as people. That's b e c a u s e w h o w e s e e o u r s e l ve s a s b e i n g determines our relationship with and thus perception of consciousness. To use an analogy, if we want to know a house, we get to know the rooms and step outside and see the house as a whole. Similarly, to know consciousness, we get to know its facets and then see it from outside of itself. That may seem impossible but I'll explain how shortly.


In the Beginning To put development in context, let's start with birth. When we're first born, the focus of our development is on the senses and motor activity. We learn to perceive and interpret the world, to walk and to talk. We then shift to desires and basic emotions with the “terrible twos.” As we reach school years, the mind becomes the focus. During the teens, the intellect engages and we're able to explore abstract thought. These stages (Alexander) correspond with cognitive (Piaget), ego (Loevinger) and moral (Kohlberg) development studied in psychology. Notice how the leading edge of development dominates at each stage. Also, note how each stage is p r o g r e s s i ve l y m o r e s u b t l e a n d abstract but equally, more powerful and inclusive. Each stage sets the context for how we see ourselves, others, and the world. While we may have become used to our own way of seeing the world, we've not seen it this way for large sections of our lives. Many adults begin stalling development here in what Loevinger called the “conventional” stages such

as in “conformist” and “self-aware.” But some continue into “postconventional” development. First comes the more subtle feelings and intuition. Then we reach the i n d i v i d u a l e g o i t s e l f. T h i s development allows what Maslow described as self-actualization. Given that up to this point, our states of consciousness (waking, dreaming, and sleeping) are directed by brain functions, it's natural to assume all of consciousness is the same. Also, our subjective reality is often seen as unreliable and imaginary while what we can sense and measure seems real. Seeing is believing.


Consciousness Given that scientists are typical members of the population but with developed intellects, it's not a big surprise that mainstream science views consciousness as an unpredicted byproduct of brain functioning.

However, to really understand consciousness, we have to go quite a bit deeper. Each time we change a state of consciousness, like falling asleep, we briefly go into a kind of neutral gear. We shift out of one state before going into the next. This neutral gear is a moment of pure consciousness. Normally, we don't notice this due to its brevity and the “noise” in our physiology. But if we culture pure consciousness or samadhi through meditation, it becomes quite apparent. Take away the busy mind and emotions and we're left with silent awareness. We can begin to recognize that consciousness itself actually underlies all other experiences and states. Psychology has begun to study ego transcendence or transpersonal stages of development, partly because of the influence of eastern thought, but also because now

there are far more people experiencing “higher states” or stages than in the past. This is due both to the many millions of people who meditate and the effect of that: rising world consciousness. Millions of people enlivening pure consciousness every day enlivens it for everyone as it's a common, shared field. People with no known history of practice are having profound shifts too.

Higher Stages Going beyond the individual egosense moves us into several stages of development of consciousness itself. First as the observer, then with the observation of the world becoming, and then united as oneness. Then we move into stages beyond consciousness.


First as the observer, then with the observation of the world becoming, and then united as oneness.


These stages of consciousness may be a new field in the west but it's one with a rich history in the east. However, history is full of lost understanding. A great teacher or revivalist comes along with not only the understanding but also the means for people to have the direct experience themselves. For several hundred years, there are many adepts and much advanced development. Buddha, Jesus, Shankara, and many others light the pages of history. However, with time and generations, the means are somehow distorted and the development withers. Within a few generations, the understanding becomes conceptual rather than lived and then becomes dogma. What was once alive becomes instruction into what to believe. This is true of many of our traditions and religions today, east and west. The truth is there but it's been misunderstood by minds trying to understand what they have not experienced. How can you understand the taste of a dragon fruit if you've never eaten fruit?

As with any human development, the process is not linear and tidy but rather unfolds uniquely for each person.

Puberty is a good example. The same underlying process unfolds for all to the same general result. But how it is experienced varies widely and it helps to have a sense of what's going on. While there are many experiences and sub-stages that may arise, the first major stage is known as Self Realization or Cosmic Consciousness. In this stage, we shift from identification with the individual self or ego to the cosmic Self. Other traditions may refer to this as a shift to no-self. Many describe things like â&#x20AC;&#x153;awakening to t h e i r t r u e n a t u r e .â&#x20AC;? T h e i n n e r awakeness of consciousness is continuous throughout the daily cycles of waking and sleep. We are a witness or observer to all and ever awake, even in deep sleep. Science confirms that in witnessing sleep state, the EEG alpha waves of alertness are blended in with the delta waves of deep sleep.


Consciousness

We are a witness or observer to all and ever awake, even in deep sleep.


This shift is often characterized by a sense of freedom or liberation and being unlimited or boundless. We are a deep inner peace and silence. As the lively edge of consciousness is bliss, a profound inner happiness will arise. Thus, it is the Buddhist nirvana or sat chit ananda, absolute bliss consciousness. As noted above, this unfolds in steps uniquely for each person. Another characteristic of this stage is that we now know ourselves as unchanging, limitless being. The inner world is stable and real and the outer world comes to be seen as an illusion or mirage. Thus it can reverse our sense of what is real. For a long time, it has been thought that such development was a high ideal, only possible with many lifetimes of arduous practice and a u s t e r i t y. H o w e v e r, t i m e s a r e changing. Many thousands of people have had this shift in recent years and the numbers are growing rapidly. For example, there are now several weekly interview shows that chat with the “ordinary awakened.” Most such people are quietly going on with their lives, deepening into silence and bliss. But if the millions of meditators are having the effect they are, imagine the effect of thousands enlivening consciousness all the time.

Coming back to the opening question, we now know ourselves as consciousness but what is it? Those living this may have a nice answer like “limitless aware being.” But even here, we are still inside the house, getting to know the rooms of c o n s c i o u s n e s s . M a ny b e a u t i f u l expressions of this stage exist but all point only to the lived experience, not the deeper source of it. Living this stage, we are effectively meditating 24-7. Progress often rapidly accelerates. A new stage dawns as the focus of development shifts to the refinement of perception and the awakening of the heart. In ayurvedic terms, we are living atman (Self) so now we develop more sattva (purity/clarity). While the prior and later stages start with a realization or shift in our sense of who we are, this stage can begin earlier or later and has its realization at the climax instead, after the next stage of unity.

This climax is known as God Realization.


All those layers of the world between the source of thought in consciousness and physical objects gradually become known: sound/vibration, geometry, fields, and form. We come to literally experience that the fine vibrations in c o ns c i ous nes s t hat g i ve ri s e t o thoughts and feelings are the same fine vibrations that give rise to form and the apparently solid world. With our senses, we perceive quantum mechanics in action and watch and hear the world being continuously formed before us. The world shifts from being seen as an illusion to being recognized as Lila, a play of the divine. We may infer from this that consciousness IS the unified field of physics. However, let's be a little more precise. The lively inner surface of consciousness is known subjectively as universal mind and objectively as the unified field from which quantum fluctuations of the vacuum arise.

We may infer from this that consciousness IS the unified field of physics.

As such, it is universal mind that is the subjective equivalent to the unified field. But universal mind is nonseparate from consciousness, just as waves are one with the ocean. We could say this is the difference between surface dynamics and the quiet depths. In fact, this field is often described subjectively as an infinite golden ocean. To quote Donovan's song, “There is an ocean of vast proportion, And she flows within ourselves.”

“There is an ocean of vast proportion, And she flows within ourselves.”


These fine levels we're getting to know directly are where artists find their muse and scientists get breakthroughs. You've undoubtedly had some experience of getting “downloads” or a sudden understanding or “aha!” This stage is like that, only more so. Unlike occasional experiences, once a value opens to you it remains available at all times. More and more values or “rooms” open to our perception. It is the awakening of the inner guru.

Personalized, the love and intelligence are described as the divine Mothercreator and Father watching over. In the east, they are Shakti and Shiva. From them, Narayana (first born) and all experience and creation arise. In this, you may recognize a variation of the Holy Trinity of Christianity. In other words, not just something to believe but something that can be directly experienced.

In this phase, there are two primary modes. Through the intellect (impersonal) we experience and understand the fundamental laws and principles of nature. Through the heart (personal), we see these same laws personified, hence the many ancient stories of gods dreaming the world into existence and angels managing creation. The mode is just a chosen orientation. Each mode has its advantages.

The next stage is a recognition by the intellect. That pure consciousness I am is directly cognized to be the same as what underlies the world. We don't just experience the two are the same - we become both as one. We step beneath the waves and recognize the common ocean. The intellect turns from looking out and dividing to looking in and joining. As the Upanishads put it, “I am That, Thou art That, all this is That, That alone Is.” This stage is known as Unity Consciousness.

We can see that this phase is the most variable subjectively due to the wide range of prior refinement, orientation, cultural factors, mode, and simply where we put our attention. In the mind-dominated west, the refinement is often happening later than historically. But in any case, the profound love and intelligence at the foundation of creation becomes unmistakably recognized.

Unity is characterized by oneness or non-duality, right on the surface. When we touch an object, we feel both the object and, as the object, feel being touched. We are both and they are one and the same, differing o n l y i n s u p e r f i c i a l a p p e a ra n c e . Whatever we experience is progressively joined into one wholeness, including such things as the aforementioned Trinity.


As the Upanishads put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am That, Thou art That, all this is That, That alone Is.â&#x20AC;? This stage is known as Unity Consciousness


Fewer people have reached this stage in the recent wave of awakening and there is some confusion about its existence as some teachers have not recognized it yet. But with time awake, this will unfold for many and become more clear. The traditions of Zen, Tantra and Vedanta still recognize it.

In the fullness of Unity, we can become familiar with all the rooms of consciousness, plus its plumbing and wiring and thus, all facets of creation.

But we're still inside the house, in atman. At this point, we come to recognize that consciousness is internally aware of itself both globally (omnipresently) and at every point within itself. We as humans could be said to have a vantage from one of those points. As we approach the next stage, we come to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;edgeâ&#x20AC;? of the cosmic Self or consciousness itself. We are stepping out of consciousness looking in on itself. One point of awareness is then able to look beyond itself and see consciousness becoming. This may seem nonsense to prior stages - how can something that is boundless infinity and eternal have an outside edge? But as

science tells us, there are infinities within infinities. And if consciousness is always looking in on itself, what happens if we turn and look out? From a unity perspective (not separate things), liveliness stirs alertness and it becomes aware. Awareness flows within itself. Curving back on itself, it recognizes itself. In that recognition is profound love and the enlivening of intelligence mentioned prior. From this perspective, we can perceive how consciousness becomes and how all creation and experience arise out of the liveliness of consciousness. We can know the origins of the universe and time and space, and the nature of the quantum fluctuations of the field. While science may not have devices that can sense at such fine and large levels, scientists themselves have the ability to systematically discover them subjectively.

What then is Consciousness?


Consciousness Finally, we've stepped out of the house and can see the whole of consciousness and its origins. We can say consciousness is the lively flow of That within Itself. It is made of that which contains it. But that is a Unity perspective.


The next stage is Brahman Just as we once transcended ego, now we transcend atman. Being beyond consciousness, it is no longer a state or stage of higher consciousness. We're talking about something beyond being or non-being, beyond even a notion of space or time, beyond all development to that point. Brahman is all of it and none of it, a totality greater than what has been known before. As the Tao s a y s , t h e Ta o t h a t c a n b e described is not the Tao. These stages we've reviewed are not a mental â&#x20AC;&#x153;ahaâ&#x20AC;? or an experience or mood but rather permanent major shifts in our relationship with that which contains all experiences. They are as distinct from each other as a teen is from a toddler. All of this is simply the foundation of a lived stage of development. In the same way, puberty is the transition, not the lived state of adulthood. The old texts give us clues to fully embodied

development. It is certainly well beyond our usual concepts of our potential, the nature of reality, and the breadth and diversity of life. This is a necessarily short overview of human potential and the nature of consciousness. Your mind may be quite unsatisfied with the answer but remember that consciousness is beyond mind. The mind cannot properly conceive of anything that has not yet been experienced. But if you use the general map, you'll find that sages and saints throughout the ages have spoken to and from the different stages in their own language. Just keep in mind where they're speaking from and who they were speaking to. The reality and resulting truth depends it.

This is a necessarily short overview of human potential and the nature of consciousness.

The Heart's Intuitive Intelligence: A path to personal, social and global coherence


The heart –

this beating

lump of muscle is in a way a little like a smart phone, invisibly connecting us to a large network of information. It is through an unseen energy field  coming from the heart that humans are profoundly connected to all living things. This energy of the heart literally binds us to each other. Every personʼs heart contributes to a ʻcollective field environment.ʼ This short video explains the importance of the heart connection and how each of us adds to this collective energy field, whether we know it or not. Interestingly, this energetic field environment even connects us with the earth itself.   The Institute of HeartMath (http://www.heartmath.org) is helping to provide a more comprehensive picture of this connection between all living things through a special science-based project called the Global Coherence Initiative (http:///www.glcoherence.org). They hope to help explain the mysteries of this connection between people and the  earth. Scientists at the Institute of HeartMath (IHM) have already conducted extensive research on the power of heart, the heart/brain connection, heart intelligence and practical intuition.   Whether through personal relationships, social connections, or even the global community - we are all connected to a field of electromagnetic energy. Increasing individual  awareness of what we bring to this field environment could be the key to creating a sustainable future, a future that we can be proud to have helped create. Learn more about this research here  http:// www.heartmath.org/ about-us/about-ushome/hearts-intuitiveintelligence.html.

July 16, Howard Martin “Field Effects” from the Heart to the Sun


By DEAN RADIN As I grew up I became increasingly interested in philosophy, of which [my

family] profoundly disapproved. Every time the subject came up they repeated

Between

‘‘What

Random

is mind? No matter.

Physical

with unfailing regularity,

What is matter? Never mind.’’

After some

fifty or sixty repetitions, this remark ceased to amuse me. — Bertrand Russell

Events and Mass Human Attention: Asking for Whom the Bell Tolls


mind & matter are entangled Generations of philosophers have vigorously debated the questions that taunted Bertrand Russell, so far without much resolution. In an experimental approach to this question, investigators have examined the outputs of electronic noisebased, truly random number generators (RNG) before, during and after highly focused or coherent group events. The group events studied included intense psychotherapy sessions, captivating theater presentations, religious rituals, popular sports competitions, like World Cup Soccer, and high-interest television broadcasts like the Academy Awards. Results of these studies suggest in general that mind and matter are entangled in some fundamental way, and in particular that focused mental attention in groups is associated with negentropic fluctuations in streams of truly random data. Unlike laboratory investigations of mind-matter interactions involving RNGs, where typically one individual is asked to mentally intend the output of an RNG to deviate from chance, the present experiments study groups of coherent minds that are paying attention to external events and explore whether these moments are associated with analogous states of coherence in matter. RNGs are used as the ‘‘matter’’ in these experiments because methods for detecting statistical order in sequences of random events are well established. Techniques for generating and recording truly random bits are well understood. Several hundred independently replicated, previously reported laboratory studies, provide support for the hypothesis that under certain conditions, mental intention and random events can become significantly correlated.

Abstract Exploratory study of the outputs of continuously operating truly random number generators (RNG) located around the world indicated that the largest daily change in variance in the year 2001 occurred on an unprecedented day in United States history, September 11, 2001. Calculation of correlations between all possible pairs of RNG outputs on a per-day basis showed that the largest daily average correlation also took place on September 11. Comparison of daily RNG correlations for 250 days that made headline news in 2001 according to a commercial news service vs. similar measures for 115 noneventful days showed a larger average RNG correlation on days with major news events (p<0.011). More generally, the correlation between an objective metric of daily news vs. the daily average RNG correlation was significantly positive (p<0.001). Potential environmental artifacts were examined and found to be implausible explanations for these results. One interpretation of these findings is that mind-matter interaction effects previously observed only in focused laboratory studies may be detectable outside the laboratory, potentially at a global scale.


Global Consciousness Project In 1998, Roger Nelson initiated the Internet-based Global Consciousness Project (GCP) to significantly expand this line of research by providing numerous parallel, continuous streams of truly random bits from well-calibrated, noise-based RNGs located around the world (Nelson, 2001). In these studies, mass

mental

coherence is inferred to take place as a result of major news events which attract widespread attention. It is around these times that negentropic changes are predicted to occur in the RNGs. This hypothesis has been formally tested in the GCP data by examining whether the cumulative deviation in variance across the random bit streams shifts from chance expectation, usually by examining RNG data from just before an event of widespread interest to a few hours afterward. As of May 2002, some 104 such events had been formally tested, with overall significant results (p3 10 7)1. With growing support for the GCP mind-matter interaction hypothesis, I was motivated to examine the data over longer time periods than had been previously studied, with special interest in exploring how RNG outputs behaved on days with major news events as compared to relatively uneventful days.

Conclusion Throughout history, philosophers have debated the perplexing, dualistic nature of subjective versus objective. In the 20th century, quantum theorists found themselves forced to seriously reconsider classical assumptions about observer vs. observed, and about mind vs. matter (Jahn, 1981; Jahn & Dunne, 1987; Stapp, 1999; Wilber, 1984). In the latter half of the 20th century, investigators developed increasingly rigorous methods for explicitly testing postulated mind-matter interactions (Radin & Nelson, 1989, in press). And as the 21st century begins, it appears that a cautious answer to the question used to taunt Bertrand Russell may be,

‘‘Yes, mind does matter.’’ As for the observations discussed in this paper, whether they turn out to be a fluke due to the uncertainties of exploratory data analysis or something more interesting will be resolved by formalizing these analyses and testing them in future GCP data.

In sum, these analyses explored a new twist on the enduring riddle, ‘‘For whom does the bell toll?’’ The answer according to this analysis resonates with John Donne’s words in the 16th century: ‘‘No

man is an island. The bell tolls for thee.’’

Synchronicity and manifesting are basically the same thing. Synchronicity is a word that describes one or multiple events that seem too connected to occur by chance alone. Manifesting is a word that describes the conscious intent of manifesting something into our lives, which often makes use of synchronicity to do so. Let me explain further. Synchronicity appears to be the consequence of psychic energies (aka. emotional and mental energies, qi, ki, prana) that are a part of us attracting life experiences and materials to us. Manifesting appears to be the consequence of psychic energies that we choose to empower, which attract life experiences and materials to us1.

By Brett A. Rogers


There is a lot to both processes that is not obvious to even the experts in these fields. For example, unconscious belief

patterns and life destiny can often trump our manifesting attempts . For example, if we are trying to manifest a promotion at work, but have fears associated with the promotion, these fearbased belief patterns will oppose the psychic energies associated with manifesting the promotion. There are many belief patterns/inner issues that can hinder our manifesting abilities. I discuss ways to neutralize them and empower positive ones in my book Inner and Outer Success. Synchronicity can be hindered by belief patterns as well, but usually in a more conscious way compared to manifesting. The psychic energies of synchronicity are believed to be regulated by our higher-self (soul) and/or spirit guides (soul friends) trying to help us live to our fullest potential. When belief patterns, such as desires, oppress us to make or not make choices that risk us achieving our desire, we can miss out on â&#x20AC;&#x153;riding the waveâ&#x20AC;? of synchronistic events to outcomes that help us live to our fullest potential. Usually these missed opportunities are accompanied by intuitive feelings/feelings. Our intuition plays an important role in catching these waves of synchronicity

more often. Intuition also helps us focus our intentions for manifesting in ways that helps us live to our fullest potential. Does this make intuition our most powerful tool for riding synchronistic waves and manifesting? Maybe not. When life experiences are more important, the psychic energies of synchronicity are usually stronger, making it easier to ride the wave. Intuition is usually stronger as well. This is why synchronistic events and intuitive insights tend to occur more frequently and powerfully around life changing events, such as births, deaths, falling in love, creative work, job changes and life changes in general. So, the power of psychic energies involved also play an important role. Psychic energies can be empowered consciously. How to do so are major teachings in the arts of manifesting. P s y c h i c A n a t o m y E x e r c i s e s / Yo g a / Treatments2 are new practices based on over 600 references from historical and scientific literature to help the enhance the health and performance of our mind-bodyspirit. They do this by exercising our psychic anatomy, which enhances all our psychic skills, just like exercising our physical body enhances our physical skills. Benefits include becoming more capable at sensing psychic energies (extra sensory perception and intuition) and to powerfully work with them (manifesting, Energy Healing and more).


â&#x20AC;&#x153;riding the waveâ&#x20AC;? of synchronistic events unconscious belief patterns and life destiny can often trump our manifesting attempts.


Another important benefit is the purification of limiting belief patterns/inner issues, which we have seen to play an important role in riding synchronistic waves and manifesting. The more empowered we are with healthy psychic energies, the faster we detox the unhealthy psychic energies associated with limiting belief patterns/inner issues. We also start to increase our potential to live a meaningful life in the big picture of creation. A Final Comment: In regards to the psychic energy aspects of reality, learning to ride synchronistic waves, manifest, be intuitive and other psychic energy related skills are at the fore-front of our evolution. With practices like the Psychic Anatomy Exercises/Yoga/ Treatments and similar practices designed with science (and eventually technology) to advance these skills, our evolution could be taking significant steps forward in the very near future.

Brett A. Rogers has always been passionate about the meaning of life. Since about 1997 he has recognized that learning and improving upon the psychological and physical foundations we are built upon, makes it easier to identify and express the meaning of life. He has pursued enlightenment of these subjects in the formal and informal academic study of physics, neuroscience, human physiology, nutrition, metaphysics and spirituality. Metaphysics and spirituality are not considered pure academic sciences yet, but Brett has been very diligent in collecting and communicating academically relevant information concerning these subjects to help develop them as a science.
