No More Secrets

It would surely push the limits of our comfort zone if we should find ourselves exchanging genuine words and interactions with every person we come across in a day – also quite an eye opening experience no doubt. Now lets take that a step further – suppose for everyone of those people you talked to and even people you had not even come in contact with you could actually know what that person was thinking. Suppose you would have a full understanding of their intentions and the inner workings of their mind, without an opportunity for deception or secrets.

Could this actually happen? What would it mean for the future of human societies? What would it mean for the distinctions and borders we put up to separate ourselves from others? Michael Persigner, a cognitive neuroscience researcher and professor who has been studying electromagnetic theories of consciousness for over 40 years has some profound thoughts related to this idea of unified consciousness.

As an analogous concept, take for example the way a radio works. We are all well aware that a good radio system can pick up a signal from anywhere in the world. Old radio systems were often static bound and had a difficult time discriminating between frequencies; the brain is like a simple old radio system. The brain can indiscriminately access all other brains signals and with training and technology it may be possible that humans can fine tune the brain’s ability to focus on other specific brain signals without sensory overload.

Since the 1870’s there have been many documented cases about people who have had sudden and accurate experiences about major events or deaths of loved ones shortly before the event actually took place. It has been determined that these occur more often on days when geo magnetic activity is quiet and usually during dream states. Similar to having better reception on a radio or phone where there is less noise in the system; having less intense geomagnetic activity makes it easier for someone to pick up on brain signals from other individuals.

This phenomenon, called remote viewing, has been demonstrated in several experimental studies. One of the studies measured people’s brains while dreaming – a test subject (person A) is asked to continuously look at a detailed picture/image in a room. Next door, a second subject (person B) is observed while dreaming in an isolated sleep lab. The person in the sleep lab does not know that someone is in the next room. Experimenters found that on geo-magnetically quiet nights the dream content of the dreamer in the sleep lab is precisely the same as the image being observed by the test subject next door. The dream contents are so closely connected that even if you gave the description of the dream and a series of sample images to a “blind” participant, the dream content and image are paired exactly every time.

Humans are not the only beings capable of this phenomenon, it is well documented that other species detect and have developed means for utilizing electrical signals. Fish often communicate with electrical signals and electrical storms have been shown to interfere with their usual patterns and ability to communicate. Birds and turtles detect the Earth’s magnetic field and use the field as a compass to navigate during migration. Cows and wild deer tend to align their bodies north-south while relaxing, but not when the animals are under high voltage power lines.

So if electrical storms interfere with the fish’s ability to communicate and power lines interfere with the usual behavior of cattle, what could possibly interfere with the earth’s electromagnetic field thereby interfering with the human brains ability to communicate with other brains? Could magnetic storms be created artificially to block the human ability to remotely access other brain signals?

During a remote viewing experiment, experimenters wanted to see if there would be a way to block remote viewing capabilities. The Experimenters created electromagnetic interference across the target with function generators and ordinary DOS system but nothing happened no interference was detected. The only system able to completely blow away a person’s ability of remote viewing was a magnetic field generated by a Windows based system. Windows based systems saturate every frequency, thereby blowing away all other frequencies. Windows is a fantastic insulator—as the number of cell phones increase, the frequency of the remote viewing, paranormal activity, and psychic phenomenon actually decrease and this has been scientifically documented. Food for thought.

So we are all immersed in the earth’s magnetic field and the strength of the earth’s magnetic field is operationally identical in intensity to the magnetic field induced in every human brain. Such convergence produces the conditions that allow global resonance. A unification of the energies produced by each human brain immersed in the Earth’s magnetic field. 7 billion conductive brains all sharing the same field creating the conditions possible to generate a human hologram. 7 billions brains all connected as One.

Imagine what this would mean for humanity and life as we know it. With some openness and focus, suppose all of humanity were able to tune in to this wonderful skill of consciously connecting with all of humanity without having to use any words, devoid of deceptions, devoid of self-denial. Suppose you could experience the unbelievable torture of hunger from the perspective of a child who has not eaten in days? Suppose you could understand the pain of a young girl forced into sexual trafficking?

We would live in a world that could not help but experience pure empathy. We would live in an empathetic society where poverty, world hunger, government deception, administration deception, and dictatorship would be eliminated. All of this would be eradicated by the virtue of the fact that 1) everyone would have equal access to knowledge and truth 2) deceptions would be impossible to keep and 3) we as a society could not veil our eyes in ignorance from the pain of others.

The truth could truly set us free. No more secrets.

Oneness is Abundance

"L.A.-based community activist Orland Bishop explains how the American economic system that assigns value to competition and scarcity of resources undermines oneness, which is inherently relational and abundant. Although the capitalist system as a whole resists investing in human development, people can create new systems that reinforce each individual's value instead of encouraging struggle and competition by making alternative agreements based on collective inspiration." -- Global Oneness Project

Seva Cafe

Seva, or service, is the selfless giving of oneself for the betterment of others and the world around. At Seva Cafe, the concept of service takes the form of a "pay it forward" restaurant, where every meal is cooked and served with love. -- Global Oneness Project

Are You Happy

"Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you." -- Hafiz of Persia

Dan Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness, challenges the popular belief that we will be miserable if we do not get what we want/plan for. Our "psychological immune system" lets us feel truly happy even when things don't go as planned. This is a great TED lecture, I highly recommend watching or simply listening to it.

Perception is Reality

My beloved Austin sent me the following email on May 7th 2011:

I just saw this interesting NASA video and it reminded me of a book that Carl Sagan wrote about the picture from Voyager that was taken back in 1990 (at the 2 minute mark in the video) of earth where it is this tiny speck. One pixel. Its interesting that it was so profound for Sagan that he decided to write a book from the picture called "The pale blue dot". This quote from wikipedia is very good at describing the concept.

"The pale blue dot"

From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of particular interest. But for us, it's different. Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known. -- From Wikipedia

And here's Carl Sagan narrating a video where he says the quote himself:

Now Is The Time

There is no such thing as 'good people' or 'bad people'. There are good deeds and bad deeds.

People who do good things can do bad things and people who do bad things can do good things. So 'bad' people will do good deeds, likewise 'good' people will do bad deeds.

The good news is, deeds are not cumulative they are reflective of the present moment.

There are no bad people... only deeds. What deeds will you do today?

The Devil is in the Detail

If we spent less time guarding and fighting for our beliefs and more time practicing them the earth could be a better place.

Intellectualizing religion goes against the core purpose of religion and yet we live in a world that continues to intellectualize religion for personal gain. In fact this has happened to the point where we have created a convert economy for "god" business.

When I say convert economy for "god”, I mean the business of collecting converts and believers; in addition to the business of collecting monetary gain. This false "god" economy has focused the human attention towards collecting idle believers and money rather than focusing on deeply helping the world become a better place.

Rituals and superstitions built up around religion for the purpose of collecting believers and money have come to replace the actual core beliefs and goodness of the majority of religions. The "word" of God and the message of ultimate oneness seem to have become somewhat of a forgotten artifact in our individualistic, competitive, and monetized system of belief.

In a world littered with false priests, rabbis, mullahs, and clergymen spreading hate and intolerance, it is a true gift to see the work of someone like Archbishop Alberto Luna; he attracted controversy among the church establishment and ruling class for both his ideas and his work with the poor and underprivileged. A true man of God can in no way utter the slightest breath of hate or intolerance, as hate is the antithesis of God.

It is a happy incident to trust.

It requires trust to tell someone the truth. To tell the secrets of our hearts and share our truths can require courage, because the truth can be powerful. Trust has the power to open up our emotions.

If we are one and life is about oneness, perhaps trusting the truth of others and truly believing in their reality, as strange and opposed those truths may be to our own, is a way to open our hearts to one another and allow true connections to be made.

"You may find the brave voices captured in this short film haunting, shocking and humorous. In some of their faces you'll see joy, anguish and grace as they trust you with their confession."

Trust is a wonderful gateway to a person’s heart. Imagine a world built on trust.

Joburg Jam by Pogo

This is Pogo's remix of sights and sounds filmed around the city of Johannesburg, South Africa. This marks the beginning of his World Remix project!

World Remix is an idea for an upcoming album expanding upon Pogo's live-action remixing concept. The goal of Pogo's project is to travel the world capturing sights, sounds, voices and chords, then using them to compose and shoot a track and video for each major culture of the world.

It is a peer funded project being funded solely by YOU the listener. The album will be released worldwide on CD, DVD, and on the website PogoMix.net. Pogo is deeply inspired by the films Baraka and Koyaanisqatsi, and hopes to produce the best cinematography and music throughout each project.

Perception - Chaos & Order

The following quote is from a lecture given by Professor Jordan Peterson about chaos, order and our perception. 
“A common misconception is that the world is made out of objects […] As a consequence of seeing the objects, you think about what to do, and after you think about what to do in the presence of the objects you ‘act’. This seems self evident, because when you look at the world there the objects are. It appears to you that you see them, and then you think about them, then you act. There is a real problem with that way of thought; the first problem is, you use half your brain to see – the visual cortex is a very large part of your brain. The reason the visual cortex is so large is because seeing, is actually impossible. [People who have been working on artificial intelligence discovered that seeing is actually impossible…] The presuppositions of people making intelligent machines was that the hard part of interacting with the world is figuring out what to do once you see the object, but it turned out that making machines that can ‘see’ objects was impossible. The reason for that is that boundaries between objects are not obvious. In fact it is very difficult to try and understand how it is that we separate things up at all.” -- Jordan Peterson 

I highly recommend watching or listening to this lecture, it is informative and academically sound.
