Nothing Is What It Seems: Concepts From the Edge of Reality

July 10, 2011 4 comments

By James F. Coyle, Author of Beyond Belief: The Ultimate Mindpower Instructional Manual

Several hundred years ago scientists considered that the weight of an object was fixed and absolute. Then Isaac Newton demonstrated that an object weighed less at the top of a mountain than it did at sea level, where gravity was stronger. (Weight is a measure of the force that gravity exerts on an object).

So a new term was coined… mass. The mass of an object was considered constant, but its weight varied with height. The higher the object above the earth’s surface, the less was the effect of gravity, hence the less its weight. But height did not affect the “mass” of an object.

So for a long time mass was considered absolute. Then along came Einstein with his relativity theory. He proved that mass actually varies depending on the speed it was traveling. The closer a mass gets to the speed of light (186,000 miles per second) the greater its mass becomes. When it reaches the speed of light its mass becomes infinite and as it would take an infinite force to accelerate an infinite mass then nothing solid can exceed the speed of light.

So speed became more important than mass which had become more important than weight.

At the same time Einstein found that when an object travels very fast, close to the speed of light, time slows down so the astronauts who traveled to the moon and back have aged a fraction of a second less than us earthbound mortals. If an astronaut traveled outward for 5 years at near the speed of light and then turned around and made the same journey back to earth he might be 10 years older while back here on earth something like 50 – 100 years would have passed.

So everything is relative to speed. Both time and mass are determined by speed.

Nothing in our universe is quite what it seems.

The mindpower gurus who can operate mentally in theta or some other altered consciousness state believe that they enter a time-free zone where they can see past/present/future events with equal clarity. It has always been considered that time flows forward, like an arrow from a bow but the relatively new science of Quantum Physics indicates that it may well flow in the opposite direction also.
And the more the scientific world delves into the strangeness of Quantum Physics, the weirder are the things being discovered.

It basically started out with the aperture test whereby a stream of light is shone through a narrow slit on to a screen. The light either showed up as a particle image on the screen or as a waveform, depending on what the experimenter expected! And there is now a line of thought that wonders if the normal state of events is the waveform, which materializes into particle form only when consciously examined.

When one considers the vast empty spaces inside supposedly solid matter, there may be some merit in this particle materialization concept. If you think about all the planets in our solar system and the vast distances between them, then reduce the size of our solar system down to that of an atom, it becomes easier to comprehend the spaces inside each atom. In fact, 99.99999999999…% of a supposedly solid object is space. It has been estimated that if all the “spaces” in the known universe were removed and only “solid” material left, then you could hold this in the palm of your hand.

The video monitor you are currently looking at is made up of mainly blank space. It consists of subatomic particles with vast spaces around them. In fact the whole known universe… and everything in it… is made up of the same material… subatomic particles. If you raise your eyes from your screen and look around you, everything you see is made of subatomic particles, even your pet cat, which is mainly empty space. (Something you’ve always suspected!) Everything is the same… except… Human Consciousness !!

The Only Exception to the Rule is Human Consciousness

Conscious awareness is a “stand-alone” event in the entire universe.
It is an anomaly.

Obviously this consciousness is a superior event compared to all the mundane subatomic sameness surrounding it. No wonder that controlled consciousness can influence the lifeless brethren we call inert matter! That is, there is no reason whatsoever why a human mind cannot influence matter.

The main reason we can’t do it, is because we don’t expect to!

The same as the scientists with the aperture test… they get what they expect in the way of results. It takes a major change in the mental operating process to be able to influence matter to the point where you can cause psychokinetic effects with mind-power alone, but it happens!

If you think deeply about this, you will probably conclude that there is no reason why the superior stand-alone event of consciousness should not be able to directly influence the atomic structure of lifeless matter.

Einstein has proven that energy and mass are interchangeable (as in a nuclear reaction) and various universities and laboratories have been able to either measure or calculate the force generated by a human mind (as in psychokinetic experiments).

The obvious conclusion here is that, as mass and energy are interchangeable, the energy generated by human consciousness can be converted into its mass equivalent, the format of which is controlled and directed by the most extraordinary of higher-consciousness processes… VISUALIZATION !!!

When a human mind clearly and continually visualizes an end result, with deep emotion and concentrated intent, then the formatted energy generated is converted into its mass equivalent – ie. the result desired. As strange as this may sound, it is scientifically feasible and generally accepted as truth among the mind power people and top motivators.

In our universe… nothing is what it seems!!

When we are born we are totally unprogrammed. We are like a computer without the software. Each developing individual slowly slips into a reality frame that is he or she finds comfortable. As we grow we are trained to recognize a common reality so that we can interact with others. We usually learn this via peer pressure at school and from social groups and parental influence.

That is, every sane human being adopts a “common denominator” when it comes to reality. This “window of reality” is basically the same for the entire human race. Your reality training teaches you that mankind cannot walk on white hot coals with a temperature 5 times that of boiling water! Yet it is done! The same training tells you that you cannot influence matter with your mind. Yet it happens!

Everybody “knows” that you cannot sit in a chair, relax, and clearly visualize some distant scene, in past, present or future time, with approximately the same degree of accuracy as produced by your other 5 senses.

Yet the Australian Aboriginal race have always had this “gift” and consider it normal.

And there are a number of European people who have taken the trouble to learn this Remote Viewing process and some even practice it for a living! Major corporations employ them to fill in information gaps.

The reality window, as we have accepted it for generations, is no longer valid.
Too many people are finding how to step outside it.

Under certain conditions, your mind can “escape” from the restriction of this universal window. And as an increasing number of individuals experience these “impossible” alternatives, universal human consciousness changes. When a critical number of people can achieve these alternative realities, then, like the 100th monkey theory, everyone will suddenly “know” that these things can be done. Sheldrake’s Morphogenic Field theory explains how this is achieved in real life.

Nothing is what it seems!!!

For the past 100 years or so western civilization has been technology orientated. The higher the technology, the better we like it. But technology is logic based.

And our logic is based on our reality window.

If we become aware of a different form of technology which is not only outside our logic base, but also can’t be replicated reliably and worse still, cannot be measured on conventional instruments, then we panic! It is outside our reality window.

But such technologies already exist. They are the science of the 21st century!
Furthermore, there are many anomalies in nature.

Resonance is one of them. The magnetic field around a permanent magnet is another. Cleve Baxter’s Primary Perception is yet another.

It is likely that the ongoing application of quantum physics to known anomalies will lead to the science of the 21st century.

Nothing is what it seems.

For example it has always been considered that time is a constant.
That is, the seconds, minutes and hours tick along at the same speed for everyone.

But an extremely clever device was invented some years ago by Dr. Nilolai Kozyrev which apparently measures micro-small distortions in time. When a small mechanical or chemical event is examined it has been found that time appears to be thin around the “cause” and dense around the resultant event. It seems that time may be variable!!

Nothing is what it seems.

Nature is full of anomalies. Until recently mainstream science tended to ignore these unwelcome events… because they were not understood. But not any more. There is a new breed of scientist who is less impressed with peer opinion and more concerned with stepping outside the common reality window.

This new breed is the scientist of the 21st century… you will be hearing a lot from this minority group in the future… because…

…nothing is what it seems!!!!

There’s a hidden force that defines reality.

June 24, 2011 2 comments

Do you know the true power of your thoughts? The truth is stunning.

German physicist and one of the founding fathers of Quantum Theory, Max Planck, said that “all matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration which holds the atom together. We must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.

In other words, the substance of the universe, of your reality, may be nothing more than consciousness or thought. Consciousness forms the building blocks of the universe and everywhere that consciousness explores, with the expectation that something will be there, it also creates. If Quantum Theory is correct, it implies that to change your current reality, all you need to do is change the frequency of your thoughts.

9 Things That Will Disappear In Our Lifetime…

April 29, 2011 3 comments

Shared by: R. Hundoo.

1. The Post Office.  Get ready to imagine a world without the post office.  They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term.  Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive.  Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills.

2. The Cheque.   Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with cheques by 2018.  It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process cheques.  Plastic cards and online transactions will lead to the eventual demise of the cheque.  This plays right into the death of the post office.  If you never paid your bills by mail and never received them by mail, the post office would absolutely go out of business.

3. The Newspaper.  The younger generation simply doesn’t read the newspaper.  They certainly don’t subscribe to a daily delivered print edition.  That may go the way of the milkman and the laundry man.  As for reading the paper online, get ready to pay for it.  The rise in mobile Internet devices and e-readers has caused all the newspaper and magazine publishers to form an alliance.  They have met with Apple, Amazon, and the major cell phone companies to develop a model for paid subscription services.

4. The Book.  You say you will never give up the physical book that you hold in your hand and turn the literal pages.  I said the same thing about downloading music from iTunes.  I wanted my hard copy CD.  But I quickly changed my mind when I discovered that I could get albums for half the price without ever leaving home to get the latest music.  The same thing will happen with books.  You can browse a bookstore online and even read a preview chapter before you buy.  And the price is less than half that of a real book.  And think of the convenience!  Once you start flicking your fingers on the screen instead of the book, you find that you are lost in the story, can’t wait to see what happens next, and you forget that you’re holding a gadget instead of a book.

5. The Land Line Telephone.  Unless you have a large family and make a lot of local calls, you don’t need it anymore.  Most people keep it simply because they’ve always had it.  But you are paying double charges for that extra service.  All the cell phone companies will let you call customers using the same cell provider for no charge against your minutes

6. Music..  This is one of the saddest parts of the change story.  The music industry is dying a slow death.  Not just because of illegal downloading.  It’s the lack of innovative new music being given a chance to get to the people who would like to hear it.  Greed and corruption is the problem.  The record labels and the radio conglomerates are simply self-destructing.  Over 40% of the music purchased today is “catalog items,” meaning traditional music that the public is familiar with older established artists.  This is also true on the live concert circuit.  To explore this fascinating and disturbing topic further, check out the book, “Appetite for Self-Destruction” by Steve Knopper, and the video documentary, “Before the Music Dies.”

7. Television.  Revenues to the networks are down dramatically.  Not just because of the economy.  People are watching TV and movies streamed from their computers.  And they’re playing games and doing lots of other things that take up the time that used to be spent watching TV.  Prime time shows have degenerated down to lower than the lowest common denominator.  Cable rates are skyrocketing and commercials run about every 4 minutes and 30 seconds.  I say good riddance to most of it.  It’s time for the cable companies to be put out of our misery..  Let the people choose what they want to watch online and through Netflix.

8. The “Things” That You Own.  Many of the very possessions that we used to own are still in our lives, but we may not actually own them in the future.  They may simply reside in “the cloud.”  Today your computer has a hard drive and you store your pictures, music, movies, and documents.  Your software is on a CD or DVD, and you can always re-install it if need be.  But all of that is changing.  Apple, Microsoft, and Google are all finishing up their latest “cloud services.”  That means that when you turn on a computer, the Internet will be built into the operating system.  So, Windows, Google, and the Mac OS will be tied straight into the Internet.  If you click an icon, it will open something in the Internet cloud.  If you save something, it will be saved to the cloud.  And you may pay a monthly  subscription fee to the cloud provider.  In this virtual world, you can access your music or your books, or your whatever from any laptop or handheld  device.  That’s the good news. But, will you actually own any of this “stuff” or will it all be able to disappear at any moment in a big “Poof?”  Will most of the things in our lives be disposable and whimsical?  It makes you want to run to the closet and pull out that photo album, grab a book from the shelf, or open up a CD case and pull out the insert.

9. Privacy.  If there ever was a concept that we can look back on nostalgically, it would be privacy. That’s gone.  It’s been gone for a long time anyway.  There are cameras on the street, in most of the buildings, and even built into your computer and cell phone.  But you can be sure that 24/7, “They” know who you are and where you are, right down to the GPS coordinates, and the Google Street View.  If you buy something, your habit is put into a zillion profiles, and your ads will change to reflect those habits.  And “They” will try to get you to buy something else.  Again and again.

All we will have that can’t be changed are Memories.

How to See Yourself Ten Years In the Future

April 21, 2011 6 comments

By: Christopher Westra, Creator of the
Manifesting and Thought Control Audio Package

Objective: See in your mind’s eye where you really want to be in ten years time. Choose your own values, activities, and relationships rather than copying others.

Complete this exercise that I’ve done with thousands of people to learn what you really want in life. This is your chance to dream and create in your imagination anything you want to do or be!

My Own Experience with the Ten Years Exercise

While working with troubled teens, I used to have them do a Ten Years in the Future exercise. I asked them to write a letter to a friend as if it was ten years in the future. Most of these boys and girls didn’t think about the next week, much less ten years to come. Like the Cheshire cat says in Alice in Wonderland, “If you don’t know where you want to go, then it doesn’t really matter what road you take!”

Of course, this lack of “foresight” was a major reason their lives were pretty messed up. We had some great conversations as they really thought about what they wanted. For most of them, this was the first time they had ever thought this way!

But the real story is what happened to me. I did the exercise right along with them on many occasions, writing my dreams and visions in detail. In my letter to a friend, I had moved to the country, built my own home, become a black belt in the martial arts, authored a book, and started my own business working from home.

Over the next ten years, something magic happened. All my dreams and visions became a reality, almost as if orchestrated by an unseen hand. I realized that something very powerful was happening, more powerful than I realized initially. I did write books and start my business. We did move to the country and I did build my own home.

How to Write Your Letter

This letter to a friend will become a magnetic factor in your life, even if you write it once and then file it away. Your vision will guide you in your yearly goals, your monthly goals, and your daily activities.

You must write your letter as if it has already happened. For example:

“Dear Bob, so much has happened in the last ten years. Rachel and I have moved to Australia and live on a 2000 acre ranch.”

“Leslie, I just wanted to make contact again and tell you about my life. I started my own gardening business in 2012 and it’s really taken off.”

“Dear Harold, I met the love of my life in 2016 and we moved to Hawaii where Frank works in a bookstore and I give surfing lessons everyday. We love it.”

Remember, describe all the details as if they have already happened.

What to Include in Your Ten Years Letter

Include where in the world you live, how you earn your living, and your primary relationships. Add lots of names and details. Get creative.

Write about your hobbies and your real passions and interests. How do you give back to the community and the world? What do you read? What do you drive and where do you travel on your vacations?

You can write about your daily schedule and activities, your gardens, your office, or whatever is really important to you.

Make your letter at least one page long and write it to a real person who you think you may still know in ten years. This will help make it more real for you.

After I learned the power of this exercise, I wrote up an 11 page document that has guided my life in the past few years. One page is good, unless you really want to expand and write more.

Just for Fun

To get your creative mind flowing, include some future inventions or world changes in your letter. I had the teens do this also and we had fun with it. You can include possible political changes, new technology, social changes, and much more.

Sit down and write (or type) your Ten Years in the Future letter today.

The 6 Million Dollar Bionic Brain

May 28, 2010 Leave a comment

By Judith Horstman / Source: Fox News

The six-million dollar man was pure fantasy in the 70s — but largely realistic technology today. And the future of this tech is even wilder: Implantable brain electrodes may be just around the corner.

Futurists and science-fiction writers have long speculated about merging human and machine, especially human brains and computers. These dreams are slowly becoming reality: The deaf are hearing with bionic “ears,” the blind see with the aid of electrodes, an amputee is moving a prosthetic arm by thought, a man paralyzed with locked-in syndrome is “speaking” through a brain electrode connected to a computerized synthesizer.

One such bionic advance — thought-driven neural implants — could change the lives of millions of people, including the many thousands conscious but now entombed within their own bodies in what’s called locked-in syndrome, and the thousands of wounded warriors returning from battle with missing limbs and devastating brain injuries.

And it could open tremendous opportunities for people in the future who would like to take their minds where no man’s body has gone before — into deepest space or the deepest of ocean depths, for example, through the “senses” of a thought-driven robot.

Neural implants listen to the brain’s instructions for movement, even when actual movement is no longer possible, and decode the signals for use in operating a computer or moving a robot or an artificial limb.

The technology for the basic requirements — powerful microprocessors, improved filters, and longer-lasting and smaller batteries — has advanced rapidly, boosted by funds from many sources, including the U.S. Department of Defense, which sponsors research in prosthetics for wounded war veterans. Years of animal research have revealed neuron activity and the brain’s amazing plasticity: the ability to revise itself.

But the research application has been slow. Scientists first had to determine what parts of the brain were controlling movement so they could figure out where to apply the brain wave sensors or electrodes. It’s quite complex. Several approaches have been taken, involving tapping into various places in the brain involved with the interface between muscle movement and thought.

One of the ongoing experiments with implanted electrodes could possibly lead to the level of targeting needed. Philip R. Kennedy of Neural Signals, Inc., and his colleagues designed a device that records the output of neurons. The hookup lets a stroke victim send a signal, through thought alone, to a computer that interprets it as, say, a vowel, which can then be vocalized by a speech synthesizer, a step toward forming whole words.

“Thought is gazillions of neurons firing in ensembles,” says Kennedy. “We’re trying to pick the right ones, and there’s an enormous amount of trial and error.” He compares thought to a wind blowing over a vast field of wheat and his work as looking for the specific stalks of wheat that move. He has had to find a way to separate speech signals from neural noise without animal research to guide him, because no other animal except humans has speech.

Brown University neuroscientist John Donoghue, the second scientist after Kennedy to develop a neural prosthesis for human implantation, is teaming up with biomedical engineer Hunter Peckham of Case Western Reserve University, who has developed an electrical device that stimulates nerves or muscles to enable some movement after a partial or lower-level spinal cord injury. Peckham has a system that allows simple, preprogrammed motions, such as boosting a person from a wheelchair to a walker. By linking a neural prosthesis to the device, Donoghue and Peckham hope to create an enormously more effective system.

Tapping into individual neurons is next: using nanoscale fibers, measuring 100 nanometers or less in diameter (a nano is one billionth of a meter) that could easily tap into single neurons because of their dimensions and their electrical and mechanical properties. Jun Li of Kansas State University and his colleagues have crafted a brush-like structure in which nanofiber bristles serve as electrodes for stimulating or receiving neural signals. Li foresees it as a way to stimulate neurons to allay Parkinson’s disease or depression or to flex astronauts’ muscles during long space flights to prevent the inevitable muscle wasting that occurs in zero gravity.

We’re not there yet. But consider the potential, from the prosaic to the grand. A neurochip and computer backpack might allow a person to move limbs that have been stilled by spinal injury. The rest of us would just like to be able to download traveler’s Japanese for that trip to Tokyo.
