What is an ideogram in remote viewing?

Remote Viewing, The Undivided No Comments »

Ideograms can in some ways be thought of as maps which show the flow of energy at a target. Trace your ideograms and try to both see and feel the flow of these energies.

“To know what you are, you must first investigate and know what you are not. Discover all that you are not–body, feelings, thoughts ,time, space, this or that–nothing concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive. The clearer you understand on the level of mind that you can be described in negative terms only, the quicker you will come to the end of your search and realize you are the limitless being”

I once heard a light

“I once heard a light, that was the sound of the whole universe, that rang as loud as it could and yet even as loud as it was, with everything in the universe in it, the unaware couldn’t hear it, and the aware only thought they could”

Electric Awareness

Remote Viewing, The Undivided No Comments »
My mothers oldest brother served as a radioman/tunnel gunner in a torpedo bomber squadron during World War II. He was killed at the Battle of Leyete Gulf after his aircraft was struck by anti-aircraft fire while in the midst of a bombing run on a Japanese battleship. His airplane and crew managed to fly a short distance from the battle before ditching at sea. Both the pilot and turret gunner successfully exited the airplane and were eventually rescued but my uncle never came to the exit hatch and the airplane quickly sank under the ocean waves. Growing up, I was often told by both my mother and my grandmother that I was “just like” my uncle so I was always interested in knowing more about him. Who was this man that I was “just like” . In my grandmothers house, his picture remained on the wall above her living room sofa for nearly 50 years  He was her first born son and  he would not be forgotten.

So I suppose that it was inevitable that I would eventually use remote viewing to try to learn more about his fate. My chosen  method was ERV (extended remote viewing) which I have found to be both difficult to do and highly experiential when successful.

Here are a few snippets taken from three different remote viewing sessions where I targeted details of his final mission:

“I found myself inside the “tunnel” area of the aircraft where my uncle was stationed. I could only see him in my peripheral vision and was unable to turn to look at him more clearly. I was inexorably drawn past him and right through the radio panel and found myself staring at the glowing radio vacuum tubes in the aircraft radio. There is some primordial aspect to consciousness. It is drawn to energy….”

” I saw my uncle more clearly. He had a large wound at about his mid-section or upper leg area and the color red seeped heavily through his clothing.”

“I found myself underwater inside the aircraft.  I could clearly see him now as he was floating suspended under water above the floor of the aircraft. He seemed bathed in a golden light even though in retrospect I know it should have been much darker there at the bottom of the sea. I found myself positioned behind him.  He was leaning forward away from me as if he had floated up from a kneeling position. His shirt tail had came out of his pants and was slowly drifting upward under the water.”

Traveling without moving

The Undivided No Comments »
The scientific confirmations of quantum theory are coming hot and fast these days. Here is another article showing how matter can travel without moving.

From the article:

“A very interesting paradox arises, because electron velocity during tunneling may become greater than the speed of light. However, this does not contradict the special theory of relativity, as the tunneling velocity is also imaginary” said Dr Ivanov

So if the velocity of the electron is greater than the speed of light, then the electron is “traveling” by passing through a realm where space and time do no exist. It is traveling without moving…which of course qualifies as “imaginary” travel :-). This actually reminds me of remote viewing wherein consciousness seemingly moves through a realm where space and time do no exist in order to describe targets past, present, and future and without regard to distance. Now it would appear that science has confirmed that the same thing occurs during electron tunneling.

Here’s another interesting article of yet another scientific experiment in which the results indicate that reality does not exist until it is measured.

From the article:

“If one chooses to believe that the atom really did take a particular path or paths then one has to accept that a future measurement is affecting the atom’s past, said Truscott.”

 Heah…I could accept that 🙂

But science says no, so the conclusion is this:

“The atoms did not travel from A to B. It was only when they were measured at the end of the journey that their wave-like or particle-like behavior was brought into existence,”

Coaxing photons into becoming a light saber

The Undivided No Comments »
Scientists have created a “new” form of matter by “coaxing” photons of light into binding together as molecules. Note the second to the last paragraph, “Lukin also suggested that the system might one day be used to create complex three-dimensional structures–such as crystals–wholly out of light. He also compared this new form of matter to the light sabers in Star Wars, saying  “It’s not an in-apt analogy to compare this to light sabers,” Lukin added. “When these photons interact with each other, they’re pushing against and deflect each other. The physics of what’s happening in these molecules is similar to what we see in the movies.” Well, If they ever succeed in making a light saber…I want one 🙂

Entanglement not a tangible physical property.

Remote Viewing, The Undivided No Comments »
The title to this article is by itself quite intriguing. Science comes ever closer to the truth as they find that quantum entanglement involves non-physical connections across space and time. Note in particular the second to the last paragraph of the article: “The experiment shows that it’s not strictly logical to think of entanglement as a tangible physical property, Eisenberg says. “There is no moment in time in which the two photons coexist,” he says, “so you cannot say that the system is entangled at this or that moment.” Yet, the phenomenon definitely exists. Anton Zeilinger, a physicist at the University of Vienna, agrees that the experiment demonstrates just how slippery the concepts of quantum mechanics are. “It’s really neat because it shows more or less that quantum events are outside our everyday notions of space and time.” How ironic for mankind that after thousands of years of asking the question “Does God exist?” it turns out that the proper question is “Does anything BUT God exist?”

Who are we and why are we here?

Remote Viewing, The Undivided Comments Off on Who are we and why are we here?

What is the source of moral knowledge? Moral knowledge and direction come from mans sense of who he thinks he is and from what he considers his purpose (or lack of purpose) to be.

The only questions that have really ever mattered are, “Who are we?” and “Why are we here?” The answers to these questions are the whole point of philosophy, (although Bertrand Russell once remarked that “The point of philosophy is to start with something so simple as to seem not worth stating, and to end with something so paradoxical that no one will believe it.”)

Where does mans sense of who he is and what his purpose is come from? Francis Bacon summed up the principal sources of this knowledge in, “Novum Organum”, his treatise on intellectual fallacies. Bacon classified these sources as Idols because of human tendency to give these sources more veneration than they actually merit. All of these sources are tainted with false notions. He named them, Idols of the Tribe, Idols of the Cave, Idols of the Marketplace and Idols of the Theatre.

The Tribe consists of our parents, extended family members, teachers and all other members of our particular tribe in whom we trust for knowledge and guidance. Nietzsche spoke about this topic with his statement that “ The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

The Cave refers to our individual minds and how our perception of the world is colored by our own temperament, education, habit, environment, accidents and personal experiences of the world. Plato used the Cave metaphor as well in referring to this concept. In his allegory of the cave, prisoners have been chained since childhood deep inside a cave and are immobilized so that they can only see a wall in front of them. Shadows are projected on the wall and since the prisoners never see anything else, the shadows become the only reality that they know. Plato remarks that if a prisoner were set free and led outside the cave into the sunlight and could see the world as it truly is, he could never again return to the cave and accept shadows as reality. Such is the nature of enlightenment.

The Marketplace refers to words themselves and their power to form opinions in the minds of men. In our day we can add pictures and movies to the list. A good example of the impact of the marketplace on our beliefs can be found in the world of Advertising. Coke is the “real thing” and with Nike shoes we can “just do it.”

The Theatre includes the field of theology, philosophy and science and is so designated because according to Bacon, “all the received systems are but so many stage-plays, representing worlds of their own creation after an unreal and scenic fashion”.

In more modern times, Thomas Kuhn has written extensively on the history of science and the fact that science does not progress in a linear fashion towards ultimate truth. Instead it works under a particular paradigm or world view for a time and then periodic revolutions take place in which the nature of scientific inquiry within a particular field is abruptly transformed. Except for the periodic revolutions, science works under a particular world view or paradigm with boundaries which define both what the universe contains and what it does not contain.

Kuhn wrote that a scientific community is “an immensely efficient instrument for solving the problems or puzzles that its paradigm contains.” Normal science is specifically not interested in innovation. Revolutionary advances and normal science are not really compatible because to seek the discovery of new phenomena unaccounted for by the paradigm, or to attempt the breaking of new theoretical ground, would threaten the paradigm.

It seems evident to me that religion functions in exactly the same way. Any particular religion works under a fiercely guarded world view and is not interested in any discovery that threatens its own particular viewpoint or paradigm.

Philosophy itself does not appear to be immune from paradigms. Frederick Nietzsche appears to be an interesting example of a philosopher strongly impacted, perhaps even created by a scientific revolution that led to a change in paradigms. In his case, Darwinian evolutionary theory led to the demise of the biblical Genesis paradigm. Its new materialistic world view appears to be the impetus behind Nietzsche’s philosophies and his famous proclamations such as “God is dead” and “Morality is herd instinct in the individual.”

It’s easy to see how such paradigm shifts lead men to rail against the inadequacies of human intellect and make statements such as “ In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point.” If this is the case, then we also see how mans concept of morality is strongly impacted by his view of who he is and what his purpose is.

With Darwin, the world suddenly became a place without purpose so why should morality have a purpose either? Purpose is now barred from science but as Alfred North Whitehead said, “Scientists, animated by the purpose of proving they are purposeless, constitute an interesting subject for study.” The paradigm that nature is purposeless is however becoming increasingly difficult to maintain.

Darwin believed that nature moved from simple to complex. Mankind evolved from simple single celled organisms….only this has proven not to be the case. We now know that” life is based on machines­—machines made of molecules. Molecular machines haul cargo from one place in the cell to another along highways made of other molecules, while still others act as cables, ropes, and pulleys to hold the cell in shape. Machines turn cellular switches on and off, sometimes killing the cell or causing it to grow. Solar powered machines capture the energy of photons and store it in chemicals. Electrical machines allow current to flow through nerves, Manufacturing machines build other molecular machines, as well as themselves. Cells swim using machines, copy themselves using machinery, ingest food with machinery. In short, highly sophisticated molecular machines control every cellular process. Thus the details of life are finely calibrated, and the machinery of life enormously complex.” ( Michael J. Behe, “Darwins Black Box”, pages 4-5).

Has there ever been a machine without a purpose? Are we to suppose that all machines have been created for a purpose except the one that is the most unfathomably complex of them all?

I’ve been to the zoo and seen apes that look curiously similar to people I’ve seen and I’m not challenging the fact that things evolve but the current paradigm does face challenges and the need for revision on several fronts. Another scientific revolution is brewing.

In the current paradigm, man is just a bunch of molecules that have blindly built a machine. But why stop with molecules? Molecules are made of atoms and atoms are made of nuclear particles and nuclear particles are made of light. Therefore Man is not just a bunch of molecules; he is in truth a creation of light.

Quantum physicist, David Bohmn, a close associate of Albert Einstein stated that all matter is essentially “frozen light” and that the universe is in some sense a holographic structure. This is not a metaphysical statement but a scientific observation.

Matter has in fact been created from light in the lab and we know the precise amount of energy it takes for instance to create an electron from light. (see http://www.hep.princeton.edu/~mcdonald/e144/nytimes.html). Light, the real substance of which man is made, exhibits many strange properties. For one thing, at the speed of light, time stops. It also has no rest mass, so it has no space. It exhibits a property known as nonlocality wherein photons of light paired and then separated by any distance remain entangled (connected) with each other. Change the properties of one photon and the other will instantly change as well. Man it seems, is made of a substance that breaks all the rules of the current paradigm.

A large and growing body of evidence shows that like light, consciousness itself exhibits non-local properties. Some of the best evidence comes from “remote viewing” experiments carried out under the direction of the Pentagon, the CIA, and other U.S. Intelligence Agencies which show that man is capable of perceiving objects and events even if physically separated from them in time and space. If you’ve followed this blog you have read of my own experiences with Remote Viewing. The program itself was supported for over a decade at the highest levels of government (including at least two U.S. Presidents). The results of these consciousness experiments were so convincing as to elicit this comment from Major General Edmund R. Thompson, the U.S. Army Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence, 1977-81. He said, “ I never liked to get into debates with the skeptics, because if you didn’t believe that remote viewing was real, you hadn’t done your homework”. (“Remote Viewers”, by Jim Schnabel, Dell Books 1997).

Nobel Prize winning scientist Cambridge Professor Brian Josephson is just one of many top ranking science professionals who have concluded that human consciousness is capable of nonlocal awareness, even while the scientific community in general continues to deny it.

As Thomas Kuhn indicated, radical scientific advancements threaten the existing paradigm and are therefore strongly repulsed by “normal” science. These types of advancements in knowledge must wait for another scientific revolution to occur before they can be accepted by the community at large. What does all this have to do with moral knowledge? Let me explain.

I was once a mentor in the “12-step” program held at a state prison. The purpose of this program was to assist prisoners in overcoming problems with alcoholism and drug addiction. In virtually every case, it was their problems with alcoholism and drug addiction that had led them to commit crimes which then ended with their incarceration. One day I told a group of prisoners the same story about light being the real base element of man as I have recounted above. The following week when I returned to the class, I noticed that the class was much larger than the previous week. One of the prisoners said, “We want you to tell us again what you told us last week about being made of light.” The men had been immensely impacted by what they had heard. They had been writing home telling family members about it. They had been discussing it and writing about it in their personal journals. It had challenged and changed their own personal paradigms concerning who they were as human beings and had done so in a very positive way. You could even say that in some way they had left the cave and come out into the light.

Morality and purpose are inseparably linked. We can’t have one without the other. What man sees when he looks inside is reflected in his actions in the world outside. It is the answers that we individually give to ourselves to the questions, “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” that guide our individual moral choices and actions. Science itself is indicating that it’s time for man to reassess its own answers to those questions, for it has found that man is far more than it has imagined.

Frederich Nietzsche spoke the following words many years ago, at the dawn of the materialistic world view brought about by the findings of Charles Darwin. They are relevant again today at the sunset of that vision. The dawn of a new day has extended forth its first light and in that light men see with awe and wonder a universe full of purpose. “every daring of the lover of knowledge is allowed again; the sea, our sea, lies open again; maybe there has never been such an open sea. “

The Reflexive Universe by Arthur Young

The Undivided Comments Off on The Reflexive Universe by Arthur Young
I’ve been drawn back to read this book many times. The copy that I have is nearly worn out from use.

It’s difficult to begin to cover the depth and breadth of Arthur Young’s thinking. He must have been a man of great optimism for he writes that as a young man he went to the patent office to review inventions with the intent of finding a way that he could contribute to mankind. He found the helicopter and that it had “ a long history of failure” and that it’s perfection was something that “clearly needed doing”. For 12 years he worked alone overcoming and perfecting it’s design.

Later he continued with Bell helicopter and created the first commercial helicopter in the world. His helicopters are the ones many of us grew up watching each week bringing in the wounded at the beginning of the weekly series, “ Mash”. His patents made him wealthy and gave him time to devote to philosophical interests.

I have found myself often thinking about things he has written. Regarding the modern notion of evolution happening blindly and without purpose, Arthur remarked, “ there never was a machine without a purpose” and “ there never was a purpose without a machine”.

The human body is of course the most marvelous machine ever built and it does occur to many that it’s a bit of a stretch that it could have developed “blindly” and “without purpose” as modern evolutionary theory advocates. Is it not illogical that all other machines required intellect, intention and purpose for their design and development except for the most unfathomably complex machine of all?

The Reflexive Universe takes the position that consciousness itself has it’s own evolutionary path. I often think of Arthur’s statements regarding law (physical laws of the universe) and that contrary to being hindrances to progress, laws are in actuality “ the agents of freedom” for “ by there very surety, man is able to learn and apply them to lift himself up by his bootstraps and become free. Flying machines such as airplanes and the helicopter that Arthur perfected are great examples of this concept. It was only by learning and applying the laws of aerodynamics that man was able to create the airplane and having done so was then able to enjoy the freedom of flying.

Arthur was an extremely well educated man with extensive mathematical schooling. His statements regarding the largely unknown “fourth” derivative are quite compelling. First we have Position. Its derivative is Speed or the change in position over time. Then we have Acceleration, which is the change in speed over time. Modern science has stopped there but even Newton acknowledged the existence of a fourth derivative. Arthur Young finally named it and called it “Control”.

Control is the change in acceleration over time and control is evidence of life. Think of any control and you will soon realize that it is a change in acceleration over time. When you control a car, what you are actually doing is changing the acceleration of your hands and feet to accomplish that purpose. When you speak, you are changing the acceleration of air to do so and so on and so forth. We say “it moved!” when something unexpected is found to be alive and what is movement if not a change in acceleration over time. Arthur suggests that since control is evidence of life that it is there that we may start when looking for mans purpose. Could it be that this universe is a school and all material things within it are its students learning in successive stages to master the art of control?

The primary theme of Arthur’s book is the result of his observation of repeating patterns in the design of all matter and of all life forms. Each “kingdom” as Arthur calls them is a repeat of a previous “kingdom” with something new added. Atoms are nuclear particles with something new added. Molecules are atoms with something new added. Plants are molecules with something new added. Animals repeat everything done in the plant kingdom and then add something new.

Arthur Young’s thinking regarding light is most “enlightening” (pun intended). Arthur acknowledges that the precursor to “nuclear particles” is light. Nuclear particles themselves are made of “light”. This fact has been repeatedly proven by science and we even know exactly how much light is required to make an electron or a proton for instance.

It has been said that man is “just a bunch of molecules bumping around randomly”, but as Arthur Young has noted…molecules are made of atoms, and atoms are made of nuclear particles and nuclear particles are made of light. Therefore, it is more appropriate to say that man is “made of light” or as the Bible states “ ye are creatures of light”.

This is important, because light is not like anything else in the universe. It does not obey the same laws or adhere to the rules of logic. At the speed of light, time stops. Light has no rest mass and therefore no ‘space”. So in fact, man is created of a substance completely outside of “space and time”.

Light has other interesting properties such as those revealed by Quantum Mechanics. We know that photons can become “entangled” with other photons so that in an inexplicable way they become inseparably linked. Even if separated by any distance (the whole universe), when one photon is changed, its twin will also change instantly. For light, space and time do not exist…and it is the base substance from which all things including each of us is made.

Don’t forget to remember

The Undivided No Comments »
Many years ago, while reading P.D.Ouspensky’s book “In search of the Miraculous”, (on pages 124-128), I learned of a highly effective technique for “living in the moment”. In fact, if you do it properly (and it’s very difficult to do it properly) it will be all but impossible to do anything BUT “live in the moment”.  Ouspensky calls the technique “remembering oneself”. He noted that we humans tend to forget to remember ourselves but it is only in remembering ourselves that we remember anything at all. I would sum up the whole process like this. See all that you can see. Hear all that you can hear. Smell all that you can smell. Taste all that you can taste. Feel all that you can feel and do it all at once with the intention of remembering it ALL. It’s amazing how much of our senses are tuned out in any given moment. We live the majority of our lives in a quasi-comotose robotic like state with minimal awareness of the true world that surrounds us. As you practice remembering yourself, you begin to tune it all back in. Ouspensky notes that we occasionally do “wake up”…as for instance while in the midst of crashing in a car or some other novel situation. In those moments, all the senses awaken and time slows to a crawl. If you practice “remembering yourself”, you may enter that state without needing a car crash to achieve it and the boundaries of time itself may become blurred. As an example, I used this technique of “remembering myself ” while walking through the streets of Charleston, South Carolina one evening over  thirteen years ago. The details of that walk have for me never really moved far into the past. They seem more like yesterday than thirteen years ago. I recall clearly the gestures people were making as I passed them in the street. The flickering of lantern lights against the brick walls. The feel  of the warm night air, and of my feet walking along cobblestone roads. The beating of my heart in my chest.The smells of restaurants, old buildings, horse carriages, etc. that I encountered along the way. The sound of music playing and horses hooves clicking on the roadways.People talking and laughing and so on and so forth. Practice remembering yourself and you will begin to awaken. Many are they who await your awakening. 🙂
