Consciousness Creating Matter

I have found this statement seems to cause a lot of problems. It is proving to be an impediment to opening up to some of the ideas that I am putting forth here. Let me see if I can help explain this a bit.

The teaching that I’ve gotten basically puts forth the idea that there was a Big Bang. Shortly thereafter the universe rapidly expanded and comprised a mist of energy particles which, when allowed to cool down, coalesced into heavier elements, atoms, molecules, basic enzymes, cells, etc. Somewhere in this, apparently random, coalescing of particles, consciousness popped up or was injected into this. I’ve always had a lot of trouble with this concept. After looking around for answers to this dilemma I finally found one in an unusual place.

During the 70s there were a lot of New Age authors and I did my share of exploring this realm. I realized that many of the people writing at the time were referencing Jane Roberts and Seth, a channeler and a spirit being. Now, while I didn’t put a whole lot of faith, if you will, in such things, I couldn’t deny that what Seth was saying was quite consistent and really did help to explain much of what I could not. I’ll try to boil it down as best I can.

Seth says we choose to come into this existence from a “higher plane.” It’s a plane which we can’t comprehend and have no memory of, but from this plane we choose to come into this physical existence to learn; to learn what it is to be rich and to be poor, to be a Nazi and a Jew, to experience love, hate, pain and joy. So imagine each individual as the fingers of a hand; each finger appears independent and yet it is connected to a greater whole.

This physical reality in which we appear to exist is a simple set of rules; beautifully consistent, perfectly logical and readily demonstrable throughout our known universe. How we interpret that is another question. Just as our ancestors looked up at the stars and interpreted them in ways that seem alien to us now with our far greater knowledge; so our scientists of future generation will look back at our interpretation of science and, perhaps, wonder what we were thinking. Either way, physical reality will remain unchanged.

Science now knows that every atom appears as a particle in very high-speed motion, vibrating close to the speed of light and never coming to rest. Again, the so-called particles agglomerate into atoms, molecules, etc. and what we see are these collections. Now the only way that we have any interaction at all with these particles is through our senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, feeling, and further processing them through our bodies into our brains, into what we will call our mind or consciousness.

After we die what remains of our existence is what we will term the soul. This is the never-ending part of ourselves, the part we inhabit in this higher plane. It retains the experiences we gather in this physical lifetime, and though it appears take place over time, the entire thing takes place in the same instant.

Now, none of this is provable or readily demonstrable and yet stands up to the rigors of our scientific method and helps to explain many of the anomalies so prevalent in other cosmologies.

I would invite any challenges,  or better yet  give me an explanation  that works better  and I’ll accept  it .

What I Believe


I was brought up Catholic; first Baptism, then Communion, finally Confirmation, the whole 9 yards… Or is that just the first three? Anyway, I found that defending my Catholicism was tough work but I did it through high school and then; I got to college.

In my first weeks and months of a required Civilization course, I began to realize there were a lot of religions out there; some saying the same things, some different things, than what I had been taught. Being an impetuous 19 year old, I basically rejected everything I’d been taught about religion and discarded the concept completely… For a long while. Then I discovered the “Scientific Method” and started all over.

Now, when I say “Scientific Method” I don’t mean science per se but a rigorous methodology that I apply to everything. This basically has three components. Every time I run across a new concept, I apply these three rules.

Does it violate anything I know to be “true?”

Does it add any detail not previously considered?

Can it be used to predict something not previously predictable?

If the concept meets these criteria, I add it to the “New Theories” and keep testing it. The more it’s tested, and the more it stands up to the testing, the more likely I am to accept it as a “Rule.”

I spent a good portion of my life applying this “methodology” to the concept of religion and here’s what I’ve gotten so far:

I believe that we choose to come into this physical reality, our three-dimensional world, if you will, to experience “Life.” To experience pain and suffering, loss and gain, love, materialism, poverty, all aspects of living. This is how we develop as individuals.

Now, we choose this existence from a “higher-level”; a greater dimension which we can’t comprehend but, where we experience all of the “lives” we have chosen to live. You may call it; Heaven, or God or Nirvana. At such a point that we are satisfied, we may choose to stay in this higher realm as fully developed “souls.” This soul is the continuous part of our existence and keeps evolving over time, or at least what we perceive as time.

I don’t need commandments handed to me on a stone tablet.  I believe we develop all of our moral rules based on our experiences. But, then again, if that image helps you understand our universe better, who am I to contradict you? And, I would hope you pay me the same courtesy.

As I progress through the last third of my life, I find that this concept helps me greatly when I think about crossing that “Final Threshold.” I see this as the final test as I predict my return to a higher dimension.

I’ll try to get back to you on that.

Water – A True Miracle

 

I hadn’t intended to start this blog with a discussion of water but I recently saw several references this molecule and it’s connection to life and the Synergetics geometry we are espousing here, so I am taking a little detour from my original plan, if there is such a thing.

The first reference was a documentary film on the fact that science now basically agrees that water is the only requirement for life. It’s the only thing that is essential. Not energy, though water requires energy. Life cannot exist without water. It’s no mere coincidence that water has such an important place when you consider the fact that water alone of all of the molecules which can exist as liquids, is the only one which gets less dense as it freezes. Ice floats. The significance becomes apparent when we realize that once water freezes over it effectively insulates itself and retards further crystallization. In other words it is very difficult for a body of water to freeze solid which would presumably terminate whatever life may exist. Handy if you are trying to keep evolution going for a few million years.

Liquid water exists at a very wide range of temperatures and pressures and life has been found in deep trenches in the oceans with no light, having evolved in an environment previously thought unsupportive of life. Now, it is also no coincidence that the water molecule H2O is, geometrically, a slightly splayed tetrahedral shape which helps explain some of the other unique characteristics of water.

Forward

As the 21st century dawns, we find ourselves on the brink of what may be mankind’s greatest challenge. Can we, as a species, use the tools we have at our disposal to continue to survive, if not thrive?


In the broad spectrum of information we have available, the data can be interpreted in many ways. On one end of the spectrum we can envision shortages leading to conflicts which, if left unresolved, may continue to spread and escalate to a point of no return which could lead to extinction. Another extreme could have us using technology at our disposal in an environmentally responsible manner while providing humanity with wealth and abundance unthinkable at the moment. While there is also an entire range of choices in-between, I can’t help but believe that the extremes presented are the true choice.

In this work I would like to examine the choices available to us in such a way as to enable each of us to understand that there are, indeed, choices and that each of us has the opportunity to participate in our own evolution in a very real and tangible way.

I would like to state at the outset that all of the ideas presented here are the direct result of my having studied the works of Richard Buckminster Fuller over the past 30 years.

We owe him a lot.

Connecting the Holons

So here we have the animation which is the overview of all the images we have been showing here. Using simply 24 straight lines, 14 spheres and a surrounding torus or two we have constructed a basic 4 Dimensional structure which, with surprisingly little modification (and only to positions and lighting) can be manipulated to model; Platonic Solids, several scientific and religious icons and many scientific, musical and financial concepts. I would like to propose that, perhaps, this modelling system can model anything we an imagine. After all, isn’t that exactly what we are doing?

Let’s consider that each of these models is a Holon. That is something that is whole in itelf and yet part of something bigger. Salt atoms are Holons unto themselves but combine to form salt molecules and salt crystals. Humans are Holons but come together to form groups, tribes, communities all of which are Holons. We will go into detail on this concept in another page. For right now we are going to see if, maybe, we can get some form of basic Holon “structure” which works at more than just the “micro-conceptual” level. Take a few moments to get this downloaded. You may find it interesting.

A=440 vs A=432 Leads to a Challenge

I have just had a friend recommend an article he read on the significance of Standard Tuning of A440 HZ or A432 HZ and the ramifications of this fact. He and I are both musicians but the implication of the article is that this 8 HZ difference represents far more than musical inclinations. From this site you can get to all sorts of discussions and controversies: Rothschild’s, Illuminati, enslavement.

This got me to the field of Cymatics and some spectacular patterns generated by sound vibrations. It also got me to a really interesting conspiracy theory basically claiming that The Pope and Hitler had tried to shift standard tuning from 432 HZ, which, they (the conspirators) claim had always been used for 2000 years because; they had discovered that this shift in frequency was what caused people to be more inclined to fight and disagree, to generate aggression. Kind of like when you are running out of your favorite <fill-in-the-blank> .

A lot of these sites basically took some very interesting and verifiable facts and combined them in some interesting ways to then generate some pretty fantastic conclusions supposedly based on these facts. Then I realized this is really what happens with every conspiracy theory. Start with an idea, preferably outrageous, and take a few facts, kludge them together and BINGO “Theory Proved.”

Now, fact checking is a bitch; someone makes a statement, maybe they reference it, maybe they don’t. Do you believe them? Here’s what I usually do. The first statement I don’t already know something about, I look up (in what I believe are reliable sources) to get some background. Then I continue with the article. If the conspirator makes a statement and I can confirm it easily I continue. After a number of these fact checks prove verifiable I can ease off and continue the article leaving out the fact checking. However, if I am going to put that article up or quote it, I really should check all of the significant statements. As Arthur C. Clark said, “If you allow me to pick and choose which facts I can use, I can prove anything.”

Unfortunately, when I applied this standard reference practice most of the conspiracy stuff just went away. The first 5 facts I looked into were just plain false. Why weren’t the great cathedral  organs tuned to 432? Why were the tuning forks of Haydn (415) and Bach (422) NOT tuned to 432? Why wouldn’t the ear cochlea adjust, over growth, to adapt to its environment? Why wouldn’t any orchestra use the tuning to lure customers back to their superior feeling music? Why aren’t we all crazy? Well, let’s hold on that one, the jury’s still out. More significantly, where is the hard evidence? Give me something. Take 2 rooms full of 6 yr olds and expose one to a 440 tone and the other to a 432? Try it for a while then switch tones. This ain’t rocket science but I think it falls squarely in the scientific method. Expose someone to 432 HZ while doing an MRI and then to 440 HZ. We can see all sorts of things. Where’s the evidence?

It’s a pain in the ass but, ya gotta do it. “But what does this have to do with Synergetics?”, you might ask? Just this:

I contend Synergetics gives us a way to simplify the entire fact checking process by not having to keep proving the same shit over and over again, which is exactly what we are doing. Take some facts, put them together based on preconceived notions and jump to a totally irrelevant conclusion. It may be hardwired in, which is why I try to stick to a pretty strict interpretation of the Scientific Method.

Here’s how it works:

I want to take this entire idea that there is a true significance to the difference between A440 HZ and A432 HZ and see if we can’t make sense of it. But, rather than start with the conclusion (the Pope and the Hitler had discovered something about that frequency ) and seeking facts to support what this discovery must be, let’s see if we can’t come up with a much simpler and clearer explanation for facts we are being shown. I suspect this may take a while but, I think, if we can make it work, it will be self confirming. Furthermore, we hope to demonstrate that these same facts may be recombined to explain any number of phenomena. Sacred Geometry, Holistic Medicine, Psychology, Market fluctuations, Chemistry, Physics, Languages are the ones I have looked at so far and all seem to work nicely within the network provided us by Synergetics. Not giving us predictions, but allowing us to understand what variables are truly important to the area we are exploring and giving more reliable predictability, while allowing for true freedom. In addition, it gives us several additional variables we didn’t even know we had!

The real beauty is that it is a very small set of facts. We shall refer to these as “generalized principles”, which must work everywhere and everywhen to be even considered facts and, once gotten, become the basis of any other area of the Universe we would like to explore. This is how a hologram works, this is how we apply the concept of holons and it all works together.

Sorry, no pictures yet but I am working on the models.

Stay tuned! I want to examine the work of Nassim Haramein and Frank Chester at the Rhode Island School of Design, both of whom have some very good ideas but abuse the application of their “so-called” discoveries.

Infinity

I would like to state that, at this point, I don’t believe in the concept of “infinity”. The idea that anything goes on forever; time or direction wise doesn’t compute with me. That should make it obvious that I don’t believe that the Universe is infinite. I think most modern physicists ascribe to this view also. Unless, of course, one wants to equate “infinite” with “God” and basically other incomprehensible concepts.

Our very definitions of point, line, area, volume, as examples of 0, 1, 2 and 3 dimensional concepts, just don’t exist, even conceptually. Can you perceive of a one sided plane surface? We throw in the idea of infinity as an axiom to be taken as stated, much as the idea of 3 dimensions is taken as axiomatic rather than as the misconstrued standard that it has proven to be. None of these things works consistently, or conceptually.

What we have, at the base line are, location, direction (angle) and vector (the length and direction from one point to another). With these basic, quite intuitive, concepts, we can express the complexities of our Universe in ways unprecedented with our 3 dimensional “Standard Model”.

Mind Fun

This should become part of a heading called “Mind Messers. ” or something like that. Mull this one over.

Our bodies, indeed, our entire physical world, is made up of “particles” none of which can actually be seen, by-the-way, but which exhibit very definite and consistent patterns of behavior due to largely unknown or misunderstood forces. So, every atom in our bodies which in turn make up the molecules, enzymes, proteins, cells, organs, organ systems etc. are all operating at full tilt; somewhere near the speed of light in some cases. All of that activity supplies blood to my highly evolved (thus far) brain which then uses this computer to write these words which, as soon as they are put down begin to ever so slowly breakdown via entropy into the same randomness from whence they came.

Now, if time’s arrow is the direction of entropy and/or vice versa, what happens to time while I (all those atoms which comprise “me”) am creating via syntropy; making ever more complex devices from the chaos. Does time reverse? Does it pause? Does that creative time ever get “paid back” is some mysterious way?

Perhaps a good analogy is a plant. It takes in the sunlight water and certain minerals and replicates the patterns encrypted in the DNA of its seed to become the fruited plant which we then harvest, breakdown via cooking, chewing and digesting to repeat the process.

I’m putting this out because I find it is triggering many interesting and sometimes conflicting ideas of what we are and what it is, exactly, we are going here. I heard one of the many pundits of evolution say the other day that the purpose of any evolving civilization should be to get off the face of the planet they are evolving on. It’s not a stable place to be. One big solar flare in the wrong direction and puff…there goes earth’s atmosphere. Who cares about the CO2? But, this is the subject for another time. Just consider whether time goes backward if we are being creative. It seems logically that it should. The related physics question (you may remember this one from high school too) says that if an astronaut goes off at the speed of light and his twin brother stays on earth, when the astronaut twin gets back he would be younger because time slows down as your speed increases, hypothetically stopping when you got to the speed of light but, and here’s the tricky part, when the astronaut twin stops won’t the light he has been speeding ahead of catch back up with him? Would he age faster on the return trip or as he slowed down? And, per relativity, how would we know which twin was, in fact, moving and in which direction? All of these questions require incredible kludges and suspensions of disbelief to even begin to make any sense but then strangle in their own complexity.

I think there’s a better, easier and more intuitive way.

It’s called Synergetics.

First There’s Nothing, Then There Is.

Fuller starts us out at a place that nicely coincides with the numbers given us by modern physics.

In high school math you may or may not recall the parts about actions and reactions, Newton’s laws, that stuff. The billiard balls and angles. Well, basically we still use these same laws, and, not a whole hell of a lot more. We shoot things at things for US$50 Billion and see how they react. Makes sense in a basically 2 dimensional universe. We can even make it work more or less in a 3 dimensional Universe but let’s have a look at this, shall we?

The billiard balls we are examining are moving about in what appear to be indeterminate patterns. For arguments sake, and a coherent starting place, we’ll call this “space”; Aether, vacuum space, Zero Point Energy, Higgs field, whatever. Seems to be where all the energy is, no matter how you cut it. It’s everywhere and it’s just energy events. Now, let’s take, for a moment, the work of the Russian scientists  referenced in David Wilcock’s work which we will use presently to nicely model the toroidal (doughnut shapes) used in Kozyrev’s and, later, Nassim Haramein’s presentations.

Fuller uses the term “energy event” and combines these as action-reaction-resultant. Remember, there aren’t 2 balls on a flat plane but millions all going in different directions. Now, let’s throw in the unprovable, but highly plausible, hypothesis that somehow, consciousness (human or otherwise) can cause these energy events as a disturbance in the counter-rotating layers of this aether. We can even use this model to exhibit where angular momentum (another physics sticking point) may come from.

 
To summarize, let’s see if we can map these up/down spins of modern physics with the 4 dimensional advantages of Synergetics. Shown here on the right as some of Fuller’s original sketches.

I’m open to suggestions.

I can now also see how the Up and Down characteristics of physics can relate to the radiant and gravitational aspects of Synergetics giving us the “tunable/untunable” in the form of visible and invisible, perhaps?
