Have you heard about Kundalini meditation and yoga?

By experiencing the Kundalini it is generally considered by meditators that…

“…You have a newfound strength and clarity that allows you to make positive changes in your life without fear. Your creativity surges. It’s a surge of energy that may be either gentle and gradual, or sudden and intense…”

Be aware if you care to fully experience the Kundalini it is important that you have an experienced professional guide to assist you. Otherwise it can be a hazardous and sometimes dangerous undertaking.

Going backwards in time before your eyes

We have been told that in physics that it is not possible to travel back in time. However, around seventy years ago a highly respected physicist by the name of David Bohm pointed out by analogy that in his opinion there exists a ‘layer’ of universal reality that he referred to as the implicate order. His analogy was along the lines of this experimental quotation:-

Quote:

“…It consists of two concentric glass cylinders. Between them is a viscous fluid, such as glycerine. If a drop of insoluble ink is placed in the glycerine and the outer cylinder is turned slowly, the drop of dye will be drawn out into a thread. Eventually the thread gets so diffused it cannot be seen. At that moment there seems to be no order present at all. Yet if you slowly turn the cylinder backward, the glycerine draws back into its original form, and suddenly the ink drop is visible again. The ink had been enfolded into the glycerine, and it was unfolded again by the reverse turning.

Suppose you put a drop of dye in the cylinder and turn it a few times, then put another drop in the same place and turn it. When you turn the cylinder back, wouldn’t you get a kind of oscillation?

Yes, you would get a movement in and out. We could put in one drop of dye and turn it and then put in another drop of dye at a slightly different place, and so on. The first and second droplets are folded a different number of times. If we keep this up and then turn the cylinder backward, the drops continually appear and disappear. So it would look as if a particle were crossing the space, but in fact it’s always the whole system that’s involved…” (I italicised the text)

I present you with two video references that demonstrate what these words mean. I also draw your attention to the fact that these experiments visually demonstrate how it is possible to reverse time under everyday conditions. Demonstrations one and two establish this point.

This appearing and  disappearing of the insoluble dye in the cylinder represents what I symbolically see as being the mechanical relationship between ordinary ‘things’ and events going on around us (represented by the diffused dye in the clear glycerine) and something ‘bigger’ than  us that is conceivably without time. This is the openness of the empty inner cylinder. As observers looking from the outside of the walls of the larger cylinder they would see the whole of the two glass cylinder apparatus system as though it were a single unit. This is until such time as the dye droplet was introduced to the system. In the process we would not notice that the droplet was confined to the space between the outer walls of both the larger and the smaller cylinder. I am suggesting that the progressive diffusing of the dye as a thread as it moves ‘ahead’ in clock time is related to the speed of the clockwise movement of the outer cylinder.

However, as observers outside the system we would not notice this separation of the wider complete system. In this sense we might say that the empty inner area of the smaller cylinder of the system is an area (or continuum) without knowable dimensions or time. The area outside of it containing the glycerine is an area that we can observe with clock time. This is because we can measure the speed of the diffusing thread of dye as the outer cylinder rotates. It follows from this that visually we would not know that the ‘area’ inside the smaller contained cylinder existed in the first place. From this we might say that the dye is diffusing throughout the complete system as distinct from it moving from just one part of it.  We might then say that there exists within the system two areas (continuums) as though they are one. I say that as the turning larger cylinder later reverts to moving in an anti-clockwise state of motion, it progressively re-establishes its former non diffused (nearly complete) droplet state. This is notionally both within the without time (informational) reference frame of the invisible ‘contents’ of the inner cylinder as well as the adjacent clock time reference frame containing the glycerine and the dye. It is within the clock time reference frame that the dye is backward enfolding itself on itself as though it had a memory to exactly do this. This suggests that it is moving backwards in time commensurate to some sort of universal order and rules that scientists do not yet understand. We might then assume that the same unknown rules and conditions are applicable to the empty contents of the smaller cylinder as well. In other words it might then be argued that these same rules and universal conditions are applicable to the universe as a whole. If this is the case then these words support my notion that the universe is a two layer one and as such this is consistent with Bohm’s theory that there is both an implicate and explicate order in the universe.

Taking my ideas one step further, I feel that what we must consider in this instance is that this without time reference frame of ‘something’ in the smaller cylinder is one that might be of an analogical ether type (although it is perhaps easier to visualise it as being a ‘blob’ of informational consciousness). I am suggesting that this ether of information is conscious of both itself as well as the happenings (day to day effects) of mechanical things and events taking place around it. In this case it is within the space (continuum) between its outer wall perimeter and the outer wall of the larger cylinder.

As the outer cylinder reverts to moving in an anti-clock wise direction (with its contents of dye moving from a diffused state to a indiffused state, we observe the mechanical effects of the dye progressively re-threading itself to its original droplet state.

I am suggesting that the dye within the time cylinder continuum is conjunctionally moving in both relationship to the clock time continuum within which it is moving as well as an mechanically indeterminable without time informational ether blob like continuum. It is this blob of ether information (through its consciousness) that ensures that the coding (like a bar code) of the information of diffusing and refusing of the dye is never lost. This is although observably to us it seems to be moving only in clock time in both of the directions that the cylinder moves. In other words as the quotes says “…it is always the whole system that’s  involved…” with all things and events going on around us at all times.

This is consistent with both the proof of concept as described in the quotation as well as the two video links cited above as well.  I suggest that the following physics quotation relating to droplet ‘path memory’ is complimentary to this debate as well.

Quote

“… In each test, the droplet wends a chaotic path that, over time, builds up the same statistical distribution in the fluid system as that expected of particles at the quantum scale. But rather than resulting from indefiniteness or a lack of reality, these quantum-like effects are driven, according to the researchers, by “path memory.”Every bounce of the droplet leaves a mark in the form of ripples, and these ripples chaotically but deterministically influence the droplet’s future bounces and lead to quantum-like statistical outcomes. The more path memory a given fluid exhibits — that is, the less its ripples dissipate — the crisper and more quantum-like the statistics become. “Memory generates chaos, which we need to get the right probabilities,” Couder explained. “We see path memory clearly in our system. It doesn’t necessarily mean it exists in quantum objects, it just suggests it would be possible…” (I italicised the text)

From these ideas you may assume that I am suggesting that ‘universal reality’ is dualistic. This is analogous to a two dimensional ‘layer’ universe about which the informational layer (Bohm’s invisible and indivisible implicate order layer) is the ‘dominant player’ in this universal system and Bohm’s explicit layer is materially visible and divisible quanta that include particles. If you consider the analogy and my commentary, you might say that these particles are not only crossing material space but also the whole of the described system as well. This includes the ether continuum described. This analogy might also demonstrate how mechanical clock time can ‘comfortably’ co- exist with a wider informational blob of without time ‘nothing’.

I am committed to the notion that all things and events taking place in the universe (including the ‘workings’ of you and me) are in this dualistic state that I refer to as an explicit and implicit state.

If you care to know a little more about the wider back ground of Bohm’s ideas in this area you might find that this reference is a useful link in order to do so.

Towards a new Psychology for the 21st Century

A review of the 2006 book publication ‘Irreducible mind: Towards a Psychology for the 21st Century’ written by Ulrich Mohrloff

Because I believe that Mohrloff’s words are ageless I do not see the fourteen year time gap between when he wrote his review and today as being relevant.

In my opinion this book review by Mohrloff is a must read for readers who seek to better understand and appreciate the original corner stones of contemporary psychology and psychiatry. Mohrloff talks at great length about what he sees are the two founding ‘fathers’ of these two mental health disciplines of medicine. These persons are Myers and James.

For the purposes of this blog I have linked psychology and psychiatry in the manner that I have as a matter of convenience. In my opinion they are much the same. I say this in the sense that neither of these disciplines accept the fact that the real world, together with our presence in it are by nature ‘flippant’ and unpredictable. In other words what is the ‘normal’ yard stick upon which we may observe and measure our every day life attitudes and subsequent behavior? This is whether they be socially correct (moral) or otherwise.

I think that it is this unpredictability surrounding our lives that Mohrloff is drawing our attention to. He seems to be saying that life should be considered to exist in the continuum of some sort of wider holistic whole that we have minimal control over yet at the same time this whole is like the grand concert master of every aspect of our lives. For example I will quote a few lines from chapter 2 of Mohrloff’s review…

Quote:

“The second chapter (by Emily Williams Kelly) summarizes the theoretical and empirical contributions of Myers to the investigation of the mind-body relation. His huge body of published writings is essentially an elaboration of the view that certain phenomena of psychology, particularly of abnormal psychology and psychical research, demonstrate that human personality is far more extensive than we ordinarily realize. According to Myers, our normal waking consciousness (which he calls the supraliminal consciousness) amounts to a relatively small selection of psychological elements and processes from a more extensive consciousness (which he calls the Subliminal Self), and the biological or-ganism, instead of producing consciousness, limits and shapes ordinary waking con-sciousness out of this larger, mostly latent, Self. In Myers’s view, evolution has a subjective element from the start.  It began with an un-differentiated sensory capacity,… (now quoting Myers)

“… which possessed the power of responding in an indefinite number of ways to an indefinite num-ber of stimuli. It was only the accident of its exposure to certain stimuli and not to others which has made it what it now is. And having shown itself so far modifiable as to acquire these highly specialised senses which I possess, it is doubtless still modifiable in direc-tions as unthinkable to me as my eyesight would have been unthinkable to the oyster. (Myers, 1889, p. 190) …”

Myers believed in the metaphysical elements existing in the wider world around us. James paid tribute to Myers in his eulogy to Myers in 1901.

Morhloff’s review

Consider this idea about thoughts

The conceptual (Implicit) IT model of all that IS.

Suppose that in the beginning, there was a blob of awareness and nothing else, and so there is nothing for the blob to be aware of except itself. This is an infinite stochastic neural network that represents connections between nodes. Lets call this blob “IT”.

Suppose this state of existence was unsatisfying to the “IT, and so it struggled to create something of which it could be aware which could be random noise. This noise might be considered as being the influences of random thoughts.

Suppose initially, the best it could do was to produce clones of thoughts so then at least, it and its clones could be aware of each other. These clones might be seen as patterns within the “IT” stochastic neural network. Each clone contain the influences of random thoughts.

Then, once this process started, there would be no particular point at which it should stop, so we could assume it would continue. This is until there were an unlimited number of “IT’s” each aware of all the other “ITs” within the wider “IT” neural network. We may elect to call these sub “ITs” nodes. This includes their inherent and indeterminable random thoughts.

The neural network is also constructed to have feed back that we might consider to be an influence guided by a non-local Quantum Potential.

Different types of feed back are possible. Because we assume the neural network is aware, then we can suppose the network will tend to provide positive feed back to features that it finds interesting and provide negative feed back if they are not. In such instances some of these negative features die.

However, if each succeeding node had only a finite awareness, the degree to which it could be aware of other individually cloned nodes, would be reduced in proportion to the total number of other nodes. So if a node allowed itself to be equally aware of each other nodes its awareness of each other node would be very weak. This includes its random noise (thoughts).

As the random noise will randomly add new features to existing nodes features of interest, this will create new variations. These variations will also receive positive feed back if they are interesting and negative feed back if they are not.

However, we can suppose that with the wider “IT” awareness involving inherent free will could choose to be aware of both strong and weaker nodes . It might see that both have a role to play within its entangled Quantum Potential system.

We might assume that random noise (thoughts) will randomly add new features to existing features to nodes . This includes their inherent thoughts. Such features can be considered as being “IF’s”.

So we might assume that the noisy stochastic neural network of “IT” will create increasingly complex new patterns of interest to it. These patterns of influences might be seen as being without limit indeterminable “IFs”. We might then say these random “IF’s” are possibilities to do something.

This means that the original nominated blob of “IT” has become analogous to an infinitely creative brain. This is a brain of influences derived from its entangled Quantum Potential system. This is into random patterns of somethings. These patterns of somethings gradually fashion meaningful images for themselves. This is by means of thoughts and patterns of thoughts that mean something unto themselves.

We might consider from this that the original “IT” blob of awareness is the reference frame of all that “IS”

In a temporal sense because human’s don’t have the ability to build infinite stochastic neural networks computer scientists have found that a finite sized network (with a suitable computer feed back mechanism) are able to produce patterns analogous to quantum matter embedded in an expanding and ‘entangled’ 3 dimensional space. This quantum matter might be considered as being particles. These are particles that are influenced to remain as either particles or waves by the non-local Quantum Potential.

We might assume from this that reality as we generally understand and experience it to be consist of such patterns within the non-local Quantum Potential network. This is a network that has no potential limits of size or time.

This described temporal reality, entangled with the Quantum Potential might be comparable to what I describe as being temporal “IS”. This is a temporal “IS” that is analogous to photo-realistic images entangled within an infinitely created brain of “IF”s.

How could one fit this scheme into this “IT” “IS” and “IF model”?

Suppose that as a result of being clones, all the nodes can to some degree share each others awareness. This includes their inherent thoughts. This being the case we might then consider that it is be possible for them to coordinate the strengths with which they choose to employ their awareness and thoughts to link to other nodes.

Let us further suppose that these patterns of thought nodes collectively try various other schemes but do not obtain satisfying results. This is until they try a scheme analogous to the finite sized computer that was able to produce patterns analogous to quantum matter embedded within an expanding 3 dimensional space.

The nodes would then find that this scheme allows them to generate patterns of awareness (including thoughts) that correspond to quantum matter embedded in an expanding 3 dimensional space.

Then we could suppose that the nodes collectively find this sufficiently interesting that they stick with this scheme.

If this is the case it might follow that in the non-local “IT” model, space and matter consist of patterns of awareness embedded with thoughts and patterns of thoughts. These patterns are determined by the degree to which nodes are aware of other nodes. This assembly of nodes are entangled with the ontological reference frame of the Quantum Potential.

If the Quantum Potential (in this instance assuming it to be the originating blob of awareness) is the holistic reference frame of all that “IS” this might then allow us to speculate that human awareness (including that of all other life forms) are entangled within the Quantum Potential reference frame of “IT” awareness. We might then consider that there is a universal consciousness. This is as postulated by the Eastern Tradition. The only difference is that the Eastern Tradition refers to the analogous Quantum Potential reference frame as being consciousness. This is whereas I refer to it as being awareness.

In my concept-science modelling I employ both of these words in different ways for different reasons.

In my earlier writings I refer to my concept of “IT” awareness as Primordial-Awareness that is analogous to a Naked-Castle.

If you have a strong interests in this topic you may find these three items of additional benefit:

Item one

Item two

Item three

It seems that we may have two states of conscious awareness in our memories

Although this science document is now somewhat outdated I feel that this does not detract from the interesting and seeming compelling nature of its contents. From my life experience I can identify with the  conclusions of the article. You will also find that this replicable physics experiment conducted on behalf of the United States Navy supports this theory. More specific physics verification of this can be found in the video presentation “Infinite potential. The life and ideas of David Bohm” by Paul Howard. The trailer for this film can be found here.

It can be shown that we do not live in isolated systems

It can be mathematically and (significantly) organically demonstrated that we exist as a unified whole. Mathematically it can be shown that this holistic unity is as a result of the existence of unknowable energy type formations that ontologically manifest themselves in nature  as objects. Fractals are objects in which the same patterns occur again and again at different scales and sizes. These objects include flowers, trees, mountain range formation, cloud patterns and body parts and object shapes such as human faces.

They manifest themselves in organic structures in the visual form of self similarity in such objects. This “self-similarity” goes infinitely deep: each pattern is made up of smaller copies of itself, and those smaller copies are made up of smaller copies again, forever in a perfect mathematical fractal set. In mathematics this is known as the Mandelbrot set. A video demonstration of this self-similarity going infinitely deep (forever) can be seen here.

I suggest that fractal theory provides a pointer to what many people might see as the shortcomings of contemporary main stream physics theories. However, one of the eighteen versions of quantum mechanics probably does. This means that one day it could conceivably be linked to a suitable mechanical physics model such as the Bohm implicate order model.

Is the separation point between life and death so definitive as the medical profession tells us that it is?

This important medical study seems to be suggesting that this is not the case.

Quote:

“… The AWARE (AWAreness during REsuscitation) study is the first launched by the Human Consciousness Project, a multidisciplinary collaboration of international scientists and physicians who have joined forces to study the relationship between mind and brain during clinical death, and is led by Dr. Sam Parnia, a world-renowned expert on the study of the human mind and consciousness during clinical death, together with Dr Peter Fenwick and Professors Stephen Holgate and Robert Peveler of the University of Southampton. The team will be working in collaboration with more than 25 major medical centers throughout Europe, Canada, and the United States.

Although the study of death has traditionally been considered a subject for theology or philosophy, recent advances in medicine have finally enabled a scientific approach to understanding the ultimate mystery facing humankind. “Contrary to popular perception,” Dr. Parnia explains, “death is not a specific moment. It is actually a process that begins when the heart stops beating, the lungs stop working, and the brain ceases functioning – a medical condition termed cardiac arrest, which from a biological viewpoint is synonymous with clinical death.”
