Synchronicities, Large and Small

A synchronicity is a rare coincidence that suggests “something is up.”  We all have them and it is fun to record them as they happen and then to go back and see if they seem as strange as when they first occurred.  For example, I was researching regulations at Lake Carroll, Illinois on whether boat lifts were allowed in docking areas.  That evening I received an email from a work colleague entitled, “The Boatlifters: The Story of 9-11.”  I was reading the book, His Excellency, by Joseph Ellis and came across the word, “ukase,” which I had never seen before.  The next day, the word of the day on the elevator news screen was —– ukase, a Russian word meaning directive.   I was on the phone with a contractor and was giving him my wife’s name, “Suzanne” and said it was spelled like Suzanne Sommers.  At that moment he expressed...

A World Mind in Conflict

If we want to find the source for what ails the human mind — and by that I mean the world at large — it is that our mind, on the most fundamental level, is deeply in conflict.   Finding the source for an ailment is the key to curing it, whether the ailment is a sore from a splinter or a world-mind in conflict. The conflict is that we are living precariously balanced between two incompatible worldviews: the world as machine and the world as  spirit.  And science, the leading architect of our worldview, knows the world-as-machine model is wrong, but it is not quite ready to advertise this fact. By “world-mind,” I mean our modern mindset, also known as the scientific worldview.  The reason why this worldview is important is because it is the most fundamental lens through which we see the world; it filters everything else we see, touch,...

Google’s Wasted Bet on Anti-Aging Treatment

A forewarning: This blog will advance a radical position, by which I mean a position that is a lot different than the one currently in vogue in mainstream science.  But as Einstein so famously said, we cannot solve a problem with the same level of consciousness that created it.  So this blog approaches the topic of aging from a different level of consciousness.  Let’s see what happens.   Google is one of the world’s most successful, admired, and richest companies.  But its investment in traditional pharmaceutical treatments to slow down the aging process shows that wisdom in technology does not always translate into wisdom in metaphysics. Google is far ahead of the curve technologically, but behind the curve in understanding where human consciousness is heading. (I said this would be a radical blog.) Its investment in pharmaceutical treatments to slow down the aging process assumes the body is a machine...

Dr. Joe Dispenza: You are the Placebo

The wall between spirit and matter, mind and body, is collapsing. This may be the key finding of the new age of thinking that just now is gaining momentum. Perhaps nothing better highlights this development than the “powerful placebo,” fake drugs and medical treatments that nevertheless cause real physical improvements in the body. But how is this possible unless there is a link between mind and body? In this latest installment of my radio show, Conversations Beyond Science and Religion, best-selling author and internationally known speaker, Dr. Joe Dispenza, talks about his new book, You are the Placebo, in which he takes the findings of the placebo effect one step farther.  When we transfer the findings of the placebo effect to the world-at-large, the possibilities for human development become endless.  That’s when we find that  well-intentioned thoughts and emotions, rather than the outside world, control our future....



Scientists Discover the Universe is a Hologram, but Misplace the Projecting Source

A hologram is an illusory three-dimensional image formed by the interference of laser beams.  The key feature of a hologram is that it is an illusion; the thing depicted as occupying three-dimensional space is not solid or “real,” but it has the appearance of being real.  Scientific American provides a helpful short video of the concept here. As strange as it may sound, the notion that the entire Universe is Really a Hologram seems to be picking up steam in the scientific community.    In an August 2003 article in Scientific American,  Jacob Bekenstein, Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, writes “our universe, which we perceive to have three spatial dimensions, might instead be “written” on a two-dimensional surface, like a hologram.  Our everyday perceptions of the world as three-dimensional would then be either a profound illusion or merely one of two alternative ways of viewing reality.” Continuing this line...
