The German poet Goethe never attended an ayahuasca ceremony. Nonetheless, his words contain useful advice for those wishing to explore visionary realms. In his poem The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Goethe describes a young apprentice who must clean his master’s workshop while the latter is away. The apprentice doesn’t want to do this by hand, so he uses one of his master’s spells to enchant a broom to clean for him.
The broom begins fetching water and scrubbing the floor. Soon the floor is flooded as the apprentice realizes he doesn’t know how to end the spell. He tries splitting the broom in two with an axe, but each half becomes a whole new broom and the chaos doubles as torrents of water crash their way through the workshop. When all seems lost, the sorcerer returns and breaks the spell, sternly warning that the spirits should only be called by those who understand them.
What is Goethe telling us? The apprentice knows how to open the floodgates of spirit, but is overwhelmed when the spirit takes on a life of its own. The apprentice is still learning the way. Unfamiliar with spirits, he invokes them to do something he should be doing himself: cleaning the workshop.
Notice the role of water in the poem. Normally a source of life and purification, here water plays the role of destroyer. The spirit of healing becomes an agent of chaos. The apprentice doesn’t realize the power of the spirits he has called and the channel he opens literally floods him. Goethe’s lesson is simple: the master’s magic is not a casual affair. It is sacred work, direct communion with the very fabric of reality.
Working with plant medicines like ayahuasca, we in the West are much like the assistant in Goethe’s poem. Although there was a tradition of psychotropic plants in Europe, much of it has been lost, leaving foreign indigenous traditions as the best models for us to learn from. These traditions, passed on through master-student lineage, contain countless generations of accumulated experience, which has allowed them to develop sophisticated evidence-based protocols for working with these plants.
Compare this with the West, where ayahuasca was unheard of less than 50 years ago. Today, it is a household name amongst alternative health seekers, the spiritually inclined, and curious psychonauts. If we want to explore plant medicine (and remember, there are other tools available), then we must learn from indigenous visionary traditions in addition to practicing common sense.
I first turned to ayahuasca because I needed help. Having heard reports of spectacular visions and miraculous healings, and frustrated by the failure of conventional medicine and alternative therapies, I was ready to try anything. Ayahuasca’s shamanic and psychedelic undertones tickled my inner adventurer, and it wasn’t long before I found myself in a suburban warehouse, drinking the unbelievably bitter medicine.
Looking back on my first ceremony, I realize that I had absolutely no idea what I was stepping into. I had to learn many lessons the hard way. This article is about some of these hard-earned lessons of my experience with visionary plant medicine (VPM), a term I will use to describe the virtually endless array of vision-inducing healing plants that includes, amongst others, ayahuasca, peyote, iboga, san pedro, and psilocybin (“magic”) mushrooms.
The tendency in the West is to approach VPM with the belief that good intentions are enough to guarantee good results. Often ignored is the fact that VPM has its own rules and without an understanding of these rules, the journey is fraught with peril and danger. Of course, all spiritual traditions, whether they are local or foreign, have their own unique learning curves. VPM is unique in its speed and intensity. In the space of a few hours, we experience emotions, dimensions, and beings that we didn’t even know existed. We understand the innate perfection of the universe and the indestructible clarity of the awake state of mind. We weep, we chuckle, we smile.
And then we live happily ever after, right? So I thought after my first ayahuasca ceremony. Having experienced my own upcoming death and dissolved into cosmic bliss, I figured it was all smooth sailing from then on. Goethe’s poem is a reminder that such experiences come at a price. It’s a bit like losing your virginity. Whether you like it or not, there is no turning back once you’ve seen behind the veil.
Across the world, this loss of innocence is celebrated in initiation rituals as a step into adulthood. Common to all initiations is the assumption of responsibility towards community and cosmos. In the West, we have a tendency to want knowledge without a parallel sense of duty. Carl Jung said, in one of his personal letters to Victor White, that this was “the mistake of our age. We think it is enough to discover new things, but we don’t realize that knowing more demands a corresponding development of morality.”
VPM can guide but it does not solve our problems. Conscious effort and focus are required every step of the way – whether it is gulping down an impossibly nauseating liquid, maintaining stillness in the midst of seemingly apocalyptic visions, or accepting ambiguous truth rather than comfortable illusion. It is through conscious action that we heal ourselves—and conscious action is difficult because negative habits, tendencies, and addictions have momentum. Changing them is like trying to divert the course of a river. In the words of Lama Govinda, as he wrote in Foundations of Tibetan Mysticism, “every deed leaves a trace, a path formed by the process of walking, and wherever such a once-trodden path exists, there we find, when a similar situation arises, that we take to this path spontaneously.”
In the West, we are used to thinking of medicine as curing illness because modern Western medicine treats symptoms. Yet symptoms are only manifestations of a mind-body imbalance. Traditional medicine treats the imbalance, helping the mind-body heal itself. In other words, it is the inherent intelligence of the body that heals. Medicine is only a support, a compassionate friend, in the healing process.
The beauty of VPM is that it gives us a choice: to be brave and assume responsibility for our innate healing capabilities, or to shy away in fear and shallowness. The question is whether we are ready to be exposed to this choice. Once confronted, every moment we refuse the challenge is a moment of sadness and suffering, as part of ourself identifies with the visionary experience whilst the other does not fully accept its consequences. And so we limp away from our dreams like a wounded dog.
This is why the Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung was critical of psychedelic experiences. He believed they revealed too much: “I am profoundly mistrustful of the ‘pure gifts of the Gods.’ You pay very dearly for them.” For Jung, man could only handle a bit at a time. He believed the perfect medicine was the dream state, when the mind relaxes, the ego weakens, and the dreamer receives insight inaccessible to the rational waking mind. Dreams, he thought, were more effective than psychedelics because they allowed for consistent, gradual evolution. They kept things on a human scale. Regardless of his views on psychedelics, Jung reminds us that the spiritual path is not something we save for Sunday morning. It is a constant, fiery devotion towards life, an unwavering acceptance of reality at every moment in time.
To be this unwavering is difficult when visionary medicine brings us to states of being so far removed from day-to-day life. The plants show us their vision of the world, where humans are not the center of existence and where all living beings are in a state of constant interaction. In ceremony, we experience states that, in many spiritual traditions, are limited only to advanced initiates. Many teachings in Tibetan Buddhism, for example, are reserved only to those who have prepared by years of preliminary practices.
Like Goethe’s apprentice, we like shortcuts. And today, shortcuts are more and more accessible. Supporting a cause is as easy as liking it on Facebook, there’s a yoga teacher on every street corner, and ceremonies of all kinds are a phone call or plane ride away. Suddenly, all these spiritual practices become accessible. Doors of all kinds open up: we have entered the spiritual supermarket. It is enormous and has many, many, brightly-lit, signposted aisles. But, what to pick? This medicine or that one?
The abundance of options easily leads to what Chogyam Trungpa calls spiritual materialism, when the ego converts spirituality to its own use. Others call it spiritual bypassing, when spirituality becomes a way of not tending to our deepest wounds. Meditation, as a solitary practice, can be a method of avoiding one’s relationship with others. Yoga can be an exercise in self-harm just as it can be a source of serenity. And VPM can easily devolve into witchcraft, which is a perversion of healing shamanism for egoistic power. The existence of witchcraft in the Amazon reminds us that all humans, not just Westerners, can distort true spirituality, despite their good intentions.
In spiritual materialism, we go on a quest for personal progress, setting ourselves the distant goal of self-liberation, without ever tackling the root of our suffering. Although our objective may be honorable, we forget that the only way to reach it is to begin with where we are in the present. Think about it: we cannot reach a destination without starting from where we are. To get from A to Z, we don’t start at K.
If we pay enough attention to our experience, we eventually realize that we suffer from an inability to fully accept the present. The ever-changing nature of the present disrupts the rigid notions of reality we hold, the narratives we use to conceptualize our lives. As a result, we are always trying to be somewhere else, either physically or psychologically.
The trouble is that unless we work on maintaining awareness of the habits of our mind on a daily basis, we will maintain these habits in our experience with VPM. VPM without a pre-existing spiritual or contemplative foundation is pointless, like planting seeds in barren soil. A Secoya shaman once cautioned me that without proper discipline, “el yagé engaña” – the medicine tricks. Although the plants of the Earth want to heal us, they are not enough to dissolve our defenses. Their healing abilities, in the words of John Welwood, are “like the light and warmth of the sun that starts to wake up a dormant seed within us. Soul is that seed, which wants to grow, blossom, and bear fruit, to become all that it can be. But often the shell around the seed is so thick that it blocks those expansive possibilities.”
Instead of the light penetrating us to the core, transmuting us wholly, we let it shine only in the places we want—the safe places we know—because deep inside we are afraid of lowering our defenses. We remain stuck in the same neurotic pathways as before, endlessly wondering why we don’t feel better, when the nausea will end, and why we aren’t having visions whilst our neighbor is head to head with a large bioluminescent snake. “I want what she’s having!”
Experienced meditators are familiar with the dilemma that meditation involves shedding a sense of reward. In ceremony too, we must leave expectations behind. In the West, this is especially difficult to understand because we pay for our ceremonies. We want the most bang for our buck (hand over the goods ayahuasca!). The intensity, vividness, and sheer alienness of ceremonies can easily lead us to sensationalist interpretations and confusion.
That’s precisely what happened to me. My ceremonies consistently flooded me with new powerful sensations, and I simply didn’t know what to do with them. The gap between my experiences during ceremony and day-to-day life felt vast. Similarly, medicine retreats in the Amazon don’t always translate to a smooth landing back home. Nor is this phenomenon unique to VPM. In contemplative practices, meditators in isolation can reach profound states of bliss yet be completely overwhelmed when returning to the mundane world.
Yet, the mundane world is the real test. It is there that we realize that spirit and matter are two sides of the same coin. It is also there that we confront and help alleviate the suffering of others, remembering that the external world can be soothing balm for our own healing. Lama Govinda says, “He who strives for his own salvation, or merely with a view of getting rid of suffering in the shortest possible way, without regard for his fellow beings, has already deprived himself of the most essential means for the realization of his aim.”
I am writing these words because I see so much good intention in human beings, so much effort, and so much strength, but also tremendous doubt, fear and misplaced energy. Human beings are unique in their ability to not only be and feel energy, but also to willfully direct energy. We can aim this energy in any direction, towards any purpose. But without a clear sense of direction, confusion prevails. The French Catholic priest-philosopher-archaeologist Teilhard de Chardin asks us “If man fails to recognize his true nature, the true object of his love, the confusion is vast and irremediable. Bent on assuaging a passion for the All on an object too small to satisfy it, his efforts will be fruitless, a terrible waste. How much energy do you think the spirit of the earth loses in a single night?”
Visionary plants can heal, but the most fundamental agent of healing and transformation is the sharp blade of the present, and this can be found regardless of the path we pursue, gods we worship, or plants we work with. The exploration of visionary realms is fascinating and necessary, but let us do so with our feet firmly grounded in everyday reality and common sense. Jung wondered, “You have not finished with the conscious side yet. Why should you expect more from the unconscious?”
In Christian iconography, the Virgin Mary, upon learning that she will conceive the son of God, is often depicted with a book in her lap to symbolize her piety and discipline, for one does not passively receive heavenly grace, but works steadfastly towards it. There are no shortcuts.
So let’s wash the workshop, and purify our hearts and minds. An ayahuasca ceremony can help, but the present moment is the fundamental ceremony of life. This ceremony never ends and you are it’s shaman. In ceremony, everything is medicine, every breath you take, every blade of grass, the moments of bliss, and the moments of pain and desperation. The poet Rainer Maria Rilke wrote, “Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are only princesses who are waiting to see us act just once with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything terrible is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that needs our love.”
Can our darkest pains, our deepest fears, really be parts of ourselves crying for our attention? Perhaps the way forward is not as scary as we imagined it. As our hearts and minds expand, we understand that the sun always shines behind the clouds. Its splendid rays radiate eternally in all directions. Truly, as the Ramayana declares, “all evil vanishes from life for him who keeps the sun in his heart.”
I thank our plant friends for the blessings they have bestowed on us. I thank the shamans and healers, past, present, and future, for their sacred work. I thank the infinitely big and the infinitely small, the known and the forgotten. I thank the light that infuses all dimensions. And I thank you, reader, for sharing this moment with all of us. Bless your journey. Bless our journey…

Free Spirit, Guest
We have all heard the phrase “You are the Master of your own Destiny”. What this means inLaw of Attraction terms is that you create your reality and attract into your life circumstances that align to your current state of thinking. We all want to have the most amazing life possible (at least on a soul level – even if the subconscious is in conflict) – but do you have the ability to take the helm and steer your own life?
The Universe responds well to clear and strong manifestation requests coming from a place of confidence, empowerment and self belief. When you are strong and clear in yourself – the Universe can hear you and you are more likely to get what you want. But at the same time you have to make it happen for yourself and be able to take action steps that will get you there. It is the action that is the stumbling block for many. There is a desire, a wish, a dream – and then there is the end result out their in the ethers – as yet unmanifested – but in between is a gaping chasm that can only be bridged through the path of action which requires a degree of self mastery.
Self mastery is the ability to create for yourself what you want in your life from a place of clarity, whilst having the focus and determination not to yield to external distractions that will take you away from where you want to be. When you know what you want and you believe you can have what you want and you can do the action steps – you will receive or experience it.
So how can one become the Master of one’s Destiny and harness the Law of Attraction to its fullest?
Here are 5 basic steps that can greatly improve your ability to create your own life.
1. Recognize you have the power to choose. If you are not where you want to be – you have to narrow the gap through the power of conscious and clear choices. Your life is a product of your choosing and if you want to manifest well you have to be able to become aware of what you are choosing! If your subconscious is doing it for you – then you are at the mercy of the unknown. Make it a point to know yourself better.
Your whole life is the product of your choices.
Positively affirming choices take you closer to your ideal – negative choices take you further away. You can compound the power of positive choices to build a powerful field of intent that will attract positive circumstances into your life. If you believe you cannot choose – you are a victim and must then just hope for the best. Being a victim to outer circumstance is a power drain and not fun. Look to see where you give your power away externally. For as long as you do this – others will choose for you – every time – on their terms!
2. Make sure your life is on your terms. Your life has to work for you if you are going to create anything. Working on all levels. Work in work that works for you. Making the money that gives you the life that you want. Manifesting the clients that suit you.
Do a reality check and see who’s terms are running your life?
If they are not yours – you are not a Sovereign Being and you will be living the life stories of others.
Once your life is on your own terms – other people’s stories will not trouble you or sway you from your path. A LOT of obstacles on the path to creating your ideal life will have root causes in living on other’s peoples terms. To have the power to live your own life – take it back from those who you gave it to in the first place. Other people – if you let them – will put rocks in your path – when you least expect it.
Wow! Where did those rocks come from !?
Know what you want and make sure that you are in control of your own life – at all times.
3. Be Yourself. As you have the potential to become your own Master – the way to realize this is to be authentic to yourself. Do not be concerned about what others may think, what people want you to wear, what people want you to be like or worry about getting permission from the outside to be who you want to be. Just be yourself. If you are concerned about other peoples thoughts and opinions – there is some self-love work to do so that you can develop a stronger sense of self determination.
The Universe does not care for ‘hoop jumping’ or ‘people pleasing’. Please yourself and you will please those who respect and appreciate you. If people do not respect and appreciate you – the chances are you do not want them around anyway.
4. Be aware of dream-stealers. Make sure you do not share your manifestation wishes with those who believe you should not have it. If people would never consent to what you want – ask yourself what are you doing in their lives? There is a power in keeping one’s mouth shut in such cases.
Blabbing to the whole world about what you want will dilute your energy and prevent you getting what you want. What you will then get is a mixture of your dreams mixed in with a dose of everyone else’s dreams – whether agreeable or not!
Intent and focus is magnified when you strengthen up your energy field and cease being the loose cannon. Many of us like to post our wishes and dreams in Facebook groups so that we can get support in manifesting them – but it does not work like that. There are big Facebook Support Groups out there for Manifestors but the truth is that the words Manifestation and Support Group are a contradiction in terms. Only you can create your own life. You are responsible for it. No-one else can do it for you. If you are weak willed and ask others to help – you will attract into your life those who do not have your best interests at heart.
If you need support, hire a therapist first to sort out the emotional problems so that you can stand on your own two feet. Then think about using the Law of Attraction after.
5. Do not take crap or crappy behaviour from people. A big one but an important one. People like trying to crap over successful people because they hate their own life and feel envious, jealous or downright hateful. Learn how to deal with it and develop a thick skin. Be loving and soft on the inside and know when to share that – but make sure you have some protection in the world. Learn how to give karma back that is not yours and learn how to not attract crap in the first place.
Many philosophies talk about love and forgiveness but the real forgiveness is in releasing your emotional attachment to the story so that it no longer affects your life. Period.
The more you love and respect yourself – the less you will be presented with other people’s emotional crap. Once you have the above 5 in place – you are well on the way to manifesting your amazing and abundant life.

Living in this day and age where there are so many obvious changes and shifts on the planet through the weather upheavals, occupy movements, continual wars throughout the globe, coupled with the emotional instability of many in the nation, it is also true that many of us are waking up to something greater within ourselves. Perhaps you, too, have had unexplained experiences with the paranormal, time travel, out of body experiences, and the like and wish there was a place to get some answers. Following is a brief story and explanation of what is called a “parallel” reality. It is my hope that this article and others on my site help you understand the strange and mysterious.
West Side Story’s Many Sides
When I was around 12 years old, the movie premiere of the critically acclaimed theatrical production of “West Side Story” with Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, and Rita Moreno, was set to air on one of the local TV stations for the very first time. (This must have been in the mid 60′s as the true USA premiere was in 1961 in New York City.) My parents wanted the whole family to sit and watch the premiere together. They were so excited, telling the five of us how much we will love this movie, how wonderful it is, and ‘we are in for a treat.’ We were planning one of our movie nights, sitting together on the dense wool carpeted floor of our living room with our snacks of chips and cookies. My parents and the household overall kept the momentum throughout the day in preparation for this major event with one exception. Me.
Earlier in the day, floods of memories and total recall that we had already viewed this film began to fuel a strange dance between my parents and myself. Strangely, as I stood there arguing with my parents this fact, I could recall the entire movie’s plot line, visuals, story and dancing routines. Never having been to New York City in my life to see the theatrical version, it was impossible for me to have known this level of detail from the film. My parents were growing angrier and angrier at my insistence and I was growing more and more irate and angry at their lack of memory at their young ages. Truly, the concept that we had not seen the film did not occur to me at the time. I only knew what was real and true in my reality to me. The simple fact that they failed to remember this ‘monumental event’ was not my concern at the age of 12. After hearing over and over the words “that’s impossible this is the world premiere” and “what is wrong with you?”, the argumentative conversation finally dwindled to me succumbing to their belief that I was completely wrong.
It is time to cease caving into the limited tribal mindset around
the paranormal world, and phenomena i.e.,
parallel dimensional realities, time travel,
out of body experiences, remote viewing, bi-location and so on.
Years later I wondered if they thought I was going insane at that time of my life. During the movie, after settling down and ‘behaving’ once again, I heard their minced oath, “Thank Goodness you have stopped all this nonsense.” This showed me they feared something within me – perhaps a simple fear of the unknown – nonetheless I knew it was not a safe place in which to explore these deeper inner mysteries and it took several years before I came up with answers.
During that same time period I had a mental block around being able to tell analog time. (Digital clocks were non-existent in everyday households.) Coincidentally, during this same period of time, after dinner Mom would clear the plates and I was made to remain at the table and tell the time on the clock, a clock with only four digits showing and carved out of a large strangely shaped lump of wood covered with tons of glossy shellac. During this ritual I was repeatedly asked to report the time in which I stammered and could not answer correctly. My inability to tell the time was a growing concern for them as well. To this day I still have difficulty looking at an analog clock and telling the time. If someone asks me “What time is it?” I freeze up and look down at my watch and if its analog I take this long pause before giving the time, and sometimes I am incorrect.
What has had me wondering over the years, are two things:
Zone of Consciousness
Regarding time in and of itself (which by the way, is an interesting concept – time in and of itself), could time be relative to which you-niverse we choose to exist in at one time singularity? Is there such a thing as a time singularity or present-tense? Let alone a past-tense or future-tense? And if so, is it a type of zone of consciousness, i.e., a time zone of consciousness, that we choose to accept as our reality in the moment? And if no one else is there in the forest when a tree falls, does it make a sound? An illuminating discourse is presented through Mr. Michael Lockwood entitled The Labyrinth of Time: Introducing the Universe where he states:
“When looking up the subject of multiple universes I came upon the explanation: Multiverse: The multiverse [or meta-universe (metaverse)] is the hypothetical set of multiple possible universes (including our universe) that together comprise all of reality. The different universes within the multiverse are sometimes called parallel universes. The structure of the multiverse, the nature of each universe within it and the relationship between the various constituent universes, depend on the specific multiverse hypothesis considered.” SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA
Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical discovery by Oxford scientists that sweeps away one of the key objections to the mind boggling and controversial idea. Science fiction looks closer to becoming science fact, reports Roger Highfield.
The work has wider implications since the idea of parallel universes sidesteps one of the key problems with time travel. Ever since it was given serious lab cred in 1949 by the great logician Kurt Gödel, many eminent physicists have argued against time travel because it undermines ideas of cause and effect to create paradoxes: a time traveller could go back to kill his grandfather so that he is never born in the first place.
But the existence of parallel worlds offers a way around these troublesome paradoxes, according to David Deutsch of Oxford University (whom I would love to meet one day), a highly respected proponent of quantum theory, the deeply mathematical, successful and baffling theory of the atomic world.
He argues that time travel shifts between different branches of reality, basing his claim on parallel universes, the so-called “many-worlds” formulation of quantum theory.
The new work bolsters his claim that quantum theory does not forbid time travel. “It does sidestep it. You go into another universe,” he said yesterday, though he admits that there is still a way to go to find schemes to manipulate space and time in a way that makes time hops possible.**
“Many sci-fi authors suggested time travel paradoxes would be solved by parallel universes but in my work, that conclusion is deduced from quantum theory itself”, Dr Deutsch said, referring to his work on many worlds.
The mathematical idea of parallel worlds was first glimpsed by the great quantum pioneer, Erwin Schrodinger, but actually published in 1957 by Hugh Everett III, when wrestling with the problem of what actually happens when an observation is made of something of interest – such as an electron or an atom – with the intention of measuring its position or its speed.
In the traditional brand of quantum mechanics, a mathematical object called a wave function, which contains all possible outcomes of a measurement experiment, “collapses” to give a single real outcome.
“… the universe is constantly and infinitely splitting,
so that no collapse takes place.”Everett came up with a more audacious interpretation: the universe is constantly and infinitely splitting, so that no collapse takes place. Every possible outcome of an experimental measurement occurs, each one in a parallel universe.
If one accepts Everett’s interpretation, our universe is embedded in an infinitely larger and more complex structure called the multiverse, which as a good approximation can be regarded as an ever-multiplying mass of parallel universes.
Every time there is an event at the quantum level – a radioactive atom decaying, for example, or a particle of light impinging on your retina – the universe is supposed to “split” into different universes.
A motorist who has a near miss, for instance, might feel relieved at his lucky escape. But in a parallel universe, another version of the same driver will have been killed. Yet another universe will see the motorist recover after treatment in hospital. The number of alternative scenarios is endless.
In this way, the “many worlds” interpretation of quantum mechanics allows a time traveller to alter the past without producing problems such as the notorious grandfather paradox.
“…there is infinite structure in what appears to be chaos.”But the “many worlds” idea has been attacked, with one theoretician joking that it is “cheap on assumptions but expensive on universes” and others that it is “repugnant to common sense.” ["Common sense"[?] or perhaps “Divine Sense” as in, “there is infinite structure in what appears to be chaos” i.e., chaos does not exist, as there is only Z integer (or the Z – ion (particle) … to me, this is the most simplest and most elegant of all explanations. This, in my opinion, fits with Max Tegmark’s explanation of the law of parsimony, or Occam’s Razor as it relates to multiple universes.]
Now new research confirms Prof Deutsch’s ideas and suggests that Dr Everett, who was a Phd student at Princeton University when he came up with the theory, was on the right track.
Commenting in New Scientist magazine, Prof. Andy Albrecht, a physicist at the University of California, Davis, said of the link between probability and many worlds: “This work will go down as one of the most important developments in the history of science.”
Quantum mechanics describes the strange things that happen in the subatomic world – such as the way photons and electrons behave both as particles and waves. By one interpretation, nothing at the subatomic scale can really be said to exist until it is observed.
Until then, particles occupy nebulous “superposition” states, in which they can have simultaneous “up” and “down” spins, or appear to be in different places at the same time.
According to quantum mechanics, unobserved particles are described by “wave functions” representing a set of multiple “probable” states. When an observer makes a measurement, the particle then settles down into one of these multiple options.
But the many worlds idea offers an alternative view. Dr Deutsch showed mathematically that the bush-like branching structure created by the universe splitting into parallel versions of itself can explain the probabilistic nature of quantum outcomes. This work was attacked but it has now had rigorous confirmation by David Wallace and Simon Saunders, also at Oxford.
Dr Saunders, who presented the work with Wallace at the Many Worlds at 50 conference at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada, told New Scientist: “We’ve cleared up the obscurities and come up with a pretty clear verdict that Everett works. It’s a dramatic turnaround and it means that people now have to discuss Everett seriously.”
Dr Deutsch added that the work addresses a three-century-old problem with the idea of probability itself, described by one philosopher, Prof David Papineau, as a scandal. “We didn’t really know what probability means,” said Dr Deutsch.
There’s a convention that it’s rational to treat it for most purposes as if we knew it was going to happen even though we actually know it need not. But this does not capture the reality, not least the 0.1 per cent chance something will not happen.
“So,” said Dr Deutsch, “the problems of probability, which were until recently considered the principal objection to the otherwise extremely elegant theory of Everett (which removes every element of mysticism and double-talk that have crept into quantum theory over the decades) have now turned into its principal selling point.” SOURCE: TELEGRAPH UK
Critics argue that to postulate usually unobservable universes just to explain our universe seems contrary to Occam’s razor.
“A skeptic worries about all the information necessary to specify all those unseen worlds. But an entire ensemble is often much simpler than one of its members. This principle can be stated more formally using the notion of algorithmic information content. The algorithmic information content in a number is, roughly speaking, the length of the shortest computer program that will produce that number as output. For example, consider the set of all integers. Which is simpler, the whole set or just one number? Naively, you might think that a single number is simpler, but the entire set can be generated by quite a trivial computer program, whereas a single number can be hugely long. Therefore, the whole set is actually simpler. Similarly, the set of all solutions to Einstein’s field equations is simpler than a specific solution. The former is described by a few equations, whereas the latter requires the specification of vast amounts of initial data on some hypersurface. The lesson is that complexity increases when we restrict our attention to one particular element in an ensemble, thereby losing the symmetry and simplicity that were inherent in the totality of all the elements taken together. In this sense, the higher-level multiverses are simpler. Going from our universe to the Level I multiverse eliminates the need to specify initial conditions, upgrading to Level II eliminates the need to specify physical constants, and the Level IV multiverse eliminates the need to specify anything at all.” He continues “A common feature of all four multiverse levels is that the simplest and arguably most elegant theory involves parallel universes by default. To deny the existence of those universes, one needs to complicate the theory by adding experimentally unsupported processes and ad hoc postulates: finite space, wave function collapse and ontological asymmetry. Our judgment therefore comes down to which we find more wasteful and inelegant: many worlds or many words. Perhaps we will gradually get used to the weird ways of our cosmos and find its strangeness to be part of its charm.” SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA
Relating to West Side Story… And Time
With this said, then I indeed went through to a parallel universe or dimensional space/time reality that had already happened a mere few minutes, hours, days or weeks prior to the space/time event of the world premiere event of our family watching West Side Story. In bringing back in to my current reality the full memory recall of the different reality I was attempting to understand the underpinnings of each reality I found myself connecting to and living within.
Clearly my experience be’tween both worlds (just two of multiversal probabilities) left me with many more questions for many years afterwards. Questions I am gaining insight and answers to through my spiritual quest and path. What my family ended up concluding about their reality-challenged daughter remains a mystery. Perhaps they have had similar experiences and have thought about the West Side Story experience.
… in every equation you will discover one constant
red [blood - coding] thread and that is YOU.
Perhaps a way to look at how to traverse through realities is by looking at finite-time singularity.
SINGULARITY occurs when one input variable is time, and an output variable increases towards infinite at a finite time. These are important inkinematics and PDEs – infinites do not occur physically, but the behavior near the singularity is often of interest. Mathematically the simplest finite-time singularities are power laws for various exponents, of which the simplest is hyperbolic growth, where the exponent is (negative) 1: More precisely, in order to get a singularity at positive time as time advances (so the output grows to infinity), one instead uses (using t for time, reversing direction to so time increases to infinity, and shifting the singularity forward from 0 to a fixed time ).
By looking at the diagram on the right, it reminds me of how we make a plus sign … +, by drawing a vertical line and then a horizontal line through the middle. What if that is incorrect and we must instead be drawing two 90° angles that may/may not intersect in the middle? What if that is the correct pattern and the shift comes in the center / zeropoint where we stop time/space and push it outward infinitely until we shift the zero point “output” to where we wish for it to be. Isn’t this the same thing that is written in the above example? If so then perhaps in addition to manifesting our wildest dreams isn’t it quite possible that we can also find the solution to Dr. Deutsch’s quest to discover how to hop time?
Whether you believe in multiple universes, realities, realms, or dimensional options … in every equation you will discover one constant red [blood-coding] thread and that is YOU. And it is the discovery of YOU which can make use of this information to further your own accelerated change towards super-intelligence and allow the true Holy Grail to occur within your mind as it fires off new neural net pathways creating an Arc of the Covenant from within. Achieving this space while remaining calm, grounded and centered throughout your spiritual path and life creations, in the end, is where we must gain our ground … for when we let go and let God … the how, when and where manifests themselves to perfection.

“Time is just a construct of the universe to keep everything from happening all at once.” - John Archibald Wheeler
John Archibald Wheeler was one of the physics giants of the 20th century, and was a colleague of Einstein’s. But what if everything is happening all at once? Moreover, what if there is no time at all?
I recently saw a description of the universe as it is perceived in physics. To quote William Brown (not to be confused with the William Brown who works with The Resonance Project):
“What science has discovered in exploring deeper levels of reality is that our universe is structured in layers of creation. Layers of creation, from the superficially diverse macroscopic classic world of day-to-day perceptions, to the deeper levels, the molecules, the atoms, and the nucleus, and sub-nuclear particles, worlds within worlds within worlds.”
He succinctly explains these levels as such:
“So the surface level of sensory reality is typically called the classical world. Underlying the classic world is the world of the molecules, the atoms, which is the realm of quantum mechanics. Then there’s the atomic nucleus and the sub-nuclear particles; that’s the world of quantum field theory, relativistic quantum mechanics. And finally the emergence of unified field theory …” (Source: William Brown: The Light Body)
So that leads us to our main question…
What Is Time?
“A colleague of Einstein, physicist John Archibald Wheeler, developed one of the first equations of quantum gravity in the early days of the unification of Relativity and Quantum Theory. Although it works, it does not incorporate time as a physical parameter, and physicists find this unsettling…
“When General Relativity was first quantized (becoming a theory of quantum gravity) in the 1960’s by John Wheeler, the result predicted a static state of the Universe, that is – no change, i.e. timelessness. This particular solution to the quantization of General Relativity is known as the Wheeler-DeWitt equation. The result seemed to be paradoxical – because how can the Universe be static and unchanging – when our every experience is of change.” – William Brown from the Resonance Project Foundation
That is precisely the question we shall be exploring, and maybe answering in this article. It is interesting to note that the predictions of the equations that are generally accepted by the scientific establishment suggest both that time is an illusion, and that the universe is in fact static. Obviously these ideas were regarded as flawed because they did not hold up against the facts, i.e. what is clearly observable in the universe. We see change every day, and we can measure time, therefore they must be true.
But what if we could change our perception of the universe and resolve this conflict? What if there is no such thing as time in the universe and it is actually just the result of a shift in perspective of sorts within a static universe which in some way does not result in motion or a changing universe either? To explore this idea we must first seek to discover what motion really is.
Is Anything Really Moving?
In Deepak Chopra’s phenomenal book How to Know God, he shares an explanation of the quantum level of the universe. Moreover, this is a definite observation of the universe through the scientific study of the quantum level of reality. He states:
“At the quantum level the whole cosmos is like a blinking light.
There are no stars or galaxies, only vibrating energy fields.”
Nassim Haramein explained this to me best. He said that what we perceive as motion is really due to the fact that reality is flashing in and out of existence at a high frequency, and that creation is actually disappearing and reappearing, oscillating between form and formlessness at the quantum level innumerable times every second giving the appearance of motion.
Therefore technically things do not move in this universe at all, but appear and disappear in slightly different patterns giving the appearance of motion. It is not the unified field itself that is blinking, only that which we perceive as solid matter - i.e. particles, nuclei, sub-atomic particles, and the material world.
In some ways it might technically be more accurate to call what we are doing every day as micro-teleportation. As we walk in the grocery store or drive in our cars we are actually teleporting forwards at absurdly tiny increments, yet at an extremely high frequency to give the appearance of motion.
Yet this motion is only occurring perceptually on the lowest energetic levels of creation: the material world, or the classical world we exist in for the majority of the day, and potentially the atomic and molecular level of reality. For this level, just like our level, singular celled organisms might have the experience of continuity of form just like we do in our physical bodies. I do not know for sure, for I do not recall being a single cell, but until we know for certain we can rule nothing out.
So, on the quantum theoretical level of reality there really is no motion, but a flashing in and out of existence of creation, yet from our level it appears like fluid motion. Just like the people on our television screen are not actually moving, but it is the little pixels which flash on and off in coordination with one another so it looks like motion.
This could actually give us insight into why there is no such thing as time.
The Flow of the Unified Field
If we perceive the universe from the level of the unified field, imagine that the unified field contains everything, and that all of creation and all of the past and future is holographically encoded within the unified field, and that all exists simultaneously, encoded within the structure of the vacuum.
In other words, creation arose out of this unified field in the form of subatomic particles, particles, atoms, and electrons, and nuclei, which are all just a form of condensed energy – formless energy condensed into form as the universe flashes in and out of existence, but nothing is solid. To quote Einstein again:
“What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”
And these manifestations of energy collaborate with one another, guided by some unseen force within creation itself, to form larger things that give every appearance of being real, and every appearance of being completely solid, but we know now that this is not true.
Imagine that everything exists at once. Imagine that all versions of the tree outside your window from the present moment, to the birth of the tree, and all the way into the apparent future to the death of the tree exist encoded within space and time, holographically present within the unified field.
Therefore nothing in reality ever appears, disappears, moves, or even changes, it is merely our perception of reality at this level which gives the appearance of change. In other words, all reality, all time, and all motion is merely the result of consciousness in motion.
If the fluid dynamics of Nassim’s black whole theory are correct, and if these dynamics are in fact the origin of consciousness, then this is the foundation of creation, and we discover the foundation of creation to be a formless collapse into itself and corresponding creation.
Yet this is not motion in the physical world. In fact, there is no motion in the physical world. This has been proven to us by quantum physicists when they discovered that reality is flashing in and out of existence. There are only holographic images which change as the consciousness expands and contracts into itself.
So what if the flow of the unified field within the universe is itself the mechanism which causes reality to flash in and out of existence, and moreover which determines the flow of time? This means also that all consciousness is an extension of universal consciousness – the unified field – and that as the unified field expands and contracts all other consciousness is brought along for the ride, and because we are perceiving from the material level of reality we enjoy front row seats to the holograms of creation changing as new levels of the unified field become visible to us as a result of our shift in perception, and the desires of consciousness.
All of creation and all activity in creation is the result of consciousness interacting within consciousness, creating consciousness, and only because we all share a common consensus of reality (for the most part) does time arise at all on our planet.
Holographically Encoded Information
The easiest and clearest way that I can describe this concept would be to use the analogy of a holographic image. You may have seen holographic images of a galaxy or some other image printed on a sheet of plastic or a card. I’m sure many of you have seen these, if not, this analogy will not do much for you. Anyways, say you have the picture of a galaxy on the card (or whatever image you have seen) and it appears to be stationary, yet as you shift your perspective (i.e. rotate or move the card) the galaxy appears to rotate.
Nothing changed in the image. All the information was there and encoded within the card from the very beginning, but because you changed your perspective the image gave the appearance of motion. What if this is how reality works? What if the motion and the apparent time we experience is merely the result of our perspective on creation due to our level of consciousness?
Observe from the fundamental level of creation, the unified field. The unified field is the vacuum structure which is theoretically expanding and collapsing through Nassim Haramein’s black whole dynamics, but it is not technically moving. And nothing else in reality is moving either, because everything is fixed, crystallized, and holographically encoded within the vacuum structure which means that everything is non-locally present everywhere, and everything is happening at once.
And as the foundation of creation collapses and expands in these black whole dynamics, which theoretically are the origin of consciousness, that creates a shift in perspective for all consciousness that is present in the higher levels of reality (the quantum field up to the classical – us) on the hologram of reality and thus we get the appearance of motion, of cyclic change, and thus of time. But as we know, reality is blinking in and out of existence, theoretically as a result of consciousness changing perspective as it would have to do if there was no motion in the universe, if the universe was timeless and static.
Time Is Relative
It is my contention that all of time is the result of the rotation of consciousness at the level of the unified field, and that time is completely relative determined by its own perceptual location and scalar dimension (level of consciousness) with which it observes reality from. Time would be perceived differently on Mars than on Earth because the length of its days are different according to the rotation of its own black whole (unified field dynamics producing/being produced by consciousness), and the length of its year would be different according to where it is in the Suns expanding and collapsing dynamics of consciousness.
Moreover, physicist are relatively certain that time itself is relative, and this is why. Time is not a phenomenon that arises all on its own in the universe. There is potentially no such thing as time at all, as their equations suggest. What we call time is an arbitrary division of the cycles we are experiencing based off of the cyclical rate of change that we are experiencing on this level of reality.
In other words, it is merely a matter of perception. If we were in a void there would be no time because not only would there be no cycles to gauge time by, but there would be no objects to determine motion with. Therefore we would be in perpetual stillness and timelessness. Proof that time is a perceptual construct we have devised which is completely based on our perception, and thus illusory, can be observed in a story that was told by Deepak Chopra.
In his lecture series with Wayne Dyer entitled Living Beyond Miracles, he tells the story of a group of miners who had one of their mines cave in on them in Germany, and they were trapped underground for an extended period of time. No light, no way of judging the cycles of the universe, and thus no frame of reference for their perception. There were a total of 7 men who were trapped underground, and yet only one of them had a watch.
The man with the watch didn’t want things to get out of hand while they were trapped underground, and to ease the fear and worry of his friends the man with the watch took it upon himself to call out that 1 hour had passed every time 2 hours had passed, and because nobody else had a watch to validate this, they couldn’t tell the difference.
As it turns that at the end of 7 days they were rescued and everybody survived except for the man with the watch. Because he took it upon himself to call out that 1 hour had passed when in reality, according to his watch, 2 hours had passed, he essentially slowed down time for everyone else, and got them to change their agreement on time itself so that they perceived they were stuck underground for half the amount of time that they really were underground for.
“He had them change their collective agreement as to what constituted time, it’s an agreement. And then they aged accordingly and he couldn’t fool himself because he had a watch.”
A Static Universe
“The Tao does not act
yet it is the root of all action.
The Tao does not move
yet it is the source of all creation.”
- Lao Tzu
We have established that creation isn’t moving, well, it appears that the unified field is not moving either. We know this because we have found that the space surrounding our Earth which was once thought to be whooshing past us, like the air past an object in a wind tunnel, has now been shown to be completely stationary. We are not hurtling through space as we thought, space itself is expanding and contracting, and thus it is not moving per say, but giving the appearance of motion.
Because the unified field, which is consciousness, is expanding and contracting, and because we are that consciousness incarnated in a slightly denser level of reality, in the classical world, we get front row seats to the apparent change, motion, and time of reality. But that is only because we are universal consciousness, as all the ancient traditions assert, which has condensed into this level of reality to experience the changing world, the world of things. Of life, death, birth, and rebirth, and of linear time.
Our only hang up is that we have become attached to this world and we have become caught up in an energetic (emotional turmoil) as things apparently die, and change, and are transient. Yet everything – every creature, your worst enemy, your best friend, and you – at the deepest level is the unified field and that is why we experience this change: because the fundamental level of who we are is perpetually radiating and collapsing back in on itself in an infinite feedback loop causing the holographic world to flicker and change before us like a beautiful, infinitely intricate, and magnificent movie played just for us.
Yet even the rate of this movie is not fixed. It is relative as Einstein stated, because when we have increased energy and have the exhilaration of new love, or the unbridled passion and enthusiasm which arises when we engage in following and living our dreams, we tap into higher energy which brings us closer to the unified field and thus the rate of time noticeably speeds up according to our own perception. As the old adage goes, “time flies when you’re having fun.”
What Determines Creation Within A Conscious Universe?
Again to quote Albert Einstein, he observed:
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality that you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, this is physics.”
This quote also helps explain the mechanism behind the apparent change we see in creation. As the evidence suggests (in our daily lives and in physics) and as Nassim Haramein’s theories are based on, all things are scalar divisions of the same geometries and dynamics, and thus everything has consciousness, because everything is consciousness.
Not everything operates at the level of consciousness that human beings do, i.e. free will, and even among human beings there are gradients of consciousness. But everything does have consciousness because at the level of the unified field which all emanates from, we are all infinite consciousness. And as consciousness we have desires and intentions which channel through us from that infinite consciousness. In my own life I call this inspiration, or even creativity and co-creation. In every case I can feel it coming through me, but I know it is not me alone who is doing the creating.
All consciousness has these inspirations and these desires, and in essence they are all the same: to experience the bliss and the ecstasy of co-creation. We love to create, and we do it with unbridled passion and intuition, all leading towards illumination and understanding of ourselves, and thus of reality. This is what all consciousness does – radiates (creates) and then moves back towards itself through creation.
The Earth desired to create a beautiful and magnificent garden that was vibrantly alive, and thus her consciousness attracted that out of the holographic field of information with the same mechanism that Einstein was talking about. And we experience change on Earth because we are experiencing the expansion and collapse of the Earths consciousness falling back in on itself as her cycles of creation ebb and flow like the tides. She is creating in harmony with the solar consciousness cycles, and each one of us are experiencing our own cycles of manifestation and experience, in accordance with all others, providing us with a rich sensory experience of motion, of time, and of creation – all the result of the impetuous desire of consciousness on all levels to create and experience creation.
All is the result of the intentions of consciousness to create and to experience its creations, and it is that desire which creation emanates from in the first place. The unified field chose to manifest itself on this level of reality to experience the bliss of a bird in flight; the joy of jumping through the waves as a dolphin; and soaring like an eagle; united in blissful union as lovers do; and spiraling in ecstasy as a galaxy.
There is no motion, or time, just the experience of perceptually passing through the holographic manifestations of the unified field, a perceptual motion created by the expansion and contraction of consciousness on all levels. The universe is an infinite hologram, and we are just passing through and the image appears to be changing, but it is not. We are just seeing what was encoded all along as we eternally shift our perspective.
This may be the reason why the little photons in the entanglement experiment (cited in William Brown’s article Got Change for a Paradigm? New Experiment Shows How Time May Emerge from Quantum Entanglement) experience time in relation to one another, but not to the observer. Because the unified field is still shifting its perspective, it is still flowing which causes reality to flash in and out of existence meaning that the photons in the experiment are flashing in and out of existence and thus we calculate that they change, and we call this time.
Whereas we and our devices are not subtle enough to see what they see and feel what they feel from their level, compounded even more because many of us do not fully understand that all things are vibrantly alive, and that everything is us and we are everything. The qualities which we ourselves possess must then be available within everything. Notably, the desire for life.
It is ironic that we are the only species who waste time desiring it, while we resist actually living it.
For what would we have to experience if the atomic levels of consciousness did not desire to create? To create a holographic interference pattern with their electrons in order to have certain perceivable qualities when gathered, and to mix and create with other atoms? And what would we experience if the Earth did not create with those atoms beautiful trees and plants, and oceans and rain all within her cycles of consciousness? And what would we have to experience if a galaxy didn’t desire to create planets? And where would anything be if the unified field didn’t expand and collapse into itself in a primordial desire to experience itself, to be, and to engage in blissful co-creation?
Our issues arise in life when we start to believe that we are the material world; when we start to believe that we are these things which we possess, and the things that we achieve. For the levels of creation also have a counterpart within human consciousness and within our mind.
On the surface we have the ego which believes that it is your possessions, achievements, and what you do. Then you have the gradients of thoughts that exist within the ego in a scale from fearful all of the way to loving thoughts. These all exists within your mind and within your ego. But you are more than you know.
Between your thoughts is a silence which is the unified field, and when you become that silence, you become the unified field, and you become universal. Through the practice of non-attachment, and meditation, all of your troubles disappear because you cease to cling to the changing illusion of reality and you become free to experience what you always will be: pure, infinite, and universal consciousness.
All things already exist encoded holographically within the unified field, the structure of space-time, and it is conscious intention which determines that which is accessed and chosen to be perceived due to its own intentions. Nothing new is created, for it is already present within the field. And it is the highest level of our consciousness which guides us in the manifestation process we call life. We are all expression of the universe, looking back on itself as Nassim would say, and experiencing all possibilities within creation with our unique and individual intentions.
All that you want out of life is encoded within the field. Your intentions and your perception is what determines what you see and what you experience. In the words of Wayne Dyer, “There’s no place that God is not. If this God-force is everywhere, then it must be in you. And if it’s everywhere, then it must be in all that you perceive to be missing from your life as well.”
In closing, I believe this understanding of reality I have described here is exactly what this brilliant poet was experiencing when he wrote these beautiful words:
“To see the world in a grain of sand,
and heaven in a wild flower.
To hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
and eternity in an hour.
We are led to believe a lie,
when we see with, not through, the eye,
which was born in a night, to die in a night,
while the soul slept in beams of light.”
- William Blake
There are a total of seven states of matter in the universe.
The usual three states of matter that we are familiar with are solid, liquid and gas. All states of matter differ in terms of properties such as integrity of shape and vibrational rate of molecules. There are four more states of matter.
The fourth state of matter above gas is plasma. Plasma is ionized gas. It is gas that is superheated to the point some of its electrons break away from their nuclei and join other nuclei. The gas molecules are in an unstable state and therefore behave in a haphazard and unpredictable manner. Stars are made of plasma Fire is plasma. It is powerful, dangerous and attractive at the same time.
The fifth state of matter above plasma is beam. The difference between beam and the other four states is that the particles of solid, liquid, gas and plasma all move randomly in all directions whereas the particles of beam move harmoniously in one direction.
Beam is harmonious and coherent whereas plasma is chaotic and erratic. The vast difference of temperament between the forth and fifth state of matter very well corresponds to the idea that there is greatest amount of chaos right before order, or there is greatest amount of confusion right before clarity appears. There is great war before there is great peace.
Beam also differs from the other four states in terms of being non-thermal while the rest are thermal. The more energetic the vibrations of particles are, the more heat they would generate. But because the particles of beam are traveling in the same direction, they do not collide against each other to generate heat.
Friction is the cause of heat. Friction is the result of particles colliding with each other and increasing their vibration or kinetic energy. Beam creates heat not in itself but when its particles clash against other matter. You feel the heat of light when its photons clash against the molecules of your skin. The greater the intensity of the beam and the more concentrated it is, the more friction it will generate when it interacts with other matter. You get incinerated when you get close enough to the sun.
Heat is vibration generated by friction of one state of matter with another or with itself. Sound is vibration propagating through matter.
Other than these five states of matter, there is a state lower than all these states. It is the zero state of matter. The zero state of matter is known as the BEC or Bose-Einstein Condensate. It is the most condensed condensate of all matter.
This state of matter was discovered by the scientist called Bose. He shared his findings with Einstein who helped him to publish his work to the world. Their joint venture resulted in the newly discovered state of matter being known as the Bose-Einstein Condensate.
A BEC exists when matter is frozen to extremely low temperatures that are a tiny fraction of a degree above absolute zero.
In this state, the atoms overlap into each other to form a wave. The BEC is a matter wave. If the wave was compressed, it would form a singularity. If enough mass was condensed into the singularity it could turn into a black hole.
It is believed that the zero state of matter could lead to the development of flat space technology. In future, it might be possible to transport huge objects in very tiny spaces as long as they are not compressed beyond the critical mass which would result in a black hole.
The occurrence of a black hole while making BEC would not need to be too much of a concern anyway because it would require a tremendous amount of energy to compress mass into the critical point.
The zero state of matter, like the fifth state of matter, is also non-thermal. It does not emit heat as well since its particles are not in motion at all thereby not causing friction.
Some elements of each state of matter are able to exist at room temperature. There are room temperature plasmas and matter waves (dark matter).
So these are the six states of matter. But all things exist in sevens, since it is the nature of the universe to exist in sevens. The fifth state of matter is not the limit, there is a sixth state above it.
Thought wave is the seventh state of matter. Thought wave exists at a higher energetic level than beam. Thought wave can move even faster than beam. It moves at the speed of infinity. It is at once here and at once there. Thought wave is local and nonlocal.
The truth is, all matter is basically one and the same. All matter is different manifestation of thought wave or etheric matter. All other states are condensations of the highest state. Thought is consciousness, consciousness is mind. The Universal Mind is what all things ultimately consist of.
Every single elemental type of matter has its own default state at room temperature. That is because it has a mind, consciousness or memory to exist in that state and have its corresponding properties. It is a mental programming present within the matter that arranges the atoms, molecules or subatomic particles in a particular manner.
There is Intelligence in Everything. All Stuff is Thinking Stuff.
As the Universal Mind thinks of a form, it takes the form. As it thinks of a motion, it makes the motion. Everything you see in the universe is an expression of a thought of the Universal Mind. That is the way all things were created. We live in a mental universe and all things are truly thought forms.
When science is able to develop ways of manipulating the mental programming within matter, we will be able to create “smart objects” such as paper that can uncrease itself perfectly after being crushed into a ball. Or even a “mercury man” terminator machine who can transform itself into any shape and color. We are able to change the form and properties of an object by changing the way it thinks.
This sums up the seven states of matter, from matter wave to thought wave.
All matter is one matter. All matter is thought wave. All matter is energy. All energy is one energy. All energy is kinetic energy. Everything moves, everything vibrates. All energy is consciousness. Thought is mind in motion. All matter is mind. All matter and energy are different manifestations of Mind.
Mind is Matter. Matter is Mind. Mind is the universal matter.
Everything needs a medium to exist in. The law of the universe is something must exist in something else. Something cannot exist in nothing. A total vacuum is space empty of everything else except the Ether (dark energy) or thought wave. There is no such thing as complete empty space. It would not even be space at all.
All matter has mass and occupies space. Mass is the measure of an object’s resistance to changes in either the speed or direction of its motion. The Ether or thought wave is what fills up the space in a vacuum. It has the least amount of mass because it is of the lowest density. There are different densities of thought wave and different densities in Ether. The Universal Mind is the Ether or Thought Wave by which all other thought waves (etheric matter/energy) pass through.
Something cannot be created from nothing. In the beginning, there was nothing but God or the universal mind. God can only create from himself. God is the universal matter. All things are manifestations of the universal mind/matter. The universe is one continuous sea of energy. There is no separation except by perception.
The universe was created as an idea in the Mind of God. First there was thought wave. The thought wave became beam, the beam became plasma, the plasma became gas, the gas became liquid, the liquid became solid and the solid became black holes. There is balance of forces in the universe. The universal thought wave is even finer than our individual thought waves. The universal mind is the Ether that permeates all things and is All Things.
Everything is Mind. Mind is Everything. The Universe Is Mind.
