New Consciousness



A Metaphysics for the New Age

“Collective human consciousness and life on our planet are intrinsically connected.” Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose “From your thought springs your reality. From your ideas your future emerges.” Neale Donald Walsch, Tomorrow’s God: Our Greatest Spiritual Challenge   Thoughts become things. Radiate positive vibrations and watch the universe reverberate in kind; we create our own reality; think high thoughts and your world grows brighter; focus on the negative, and your fears materialize. Thoughts inside attract things out there. Tomorrow’s God will come down to earth and be part of us, as humankind awakens to find that its concept of a...

Response to Lawrence Krauss and His Materialistic Vision

In a recent article on Scientific American’s website, entitled Consolation of Philosophy, http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=the-consolation-of-philos&page=2, Professor Lawrence Krauss expounds on some of the themes in his book, A Universe from Nothing, and concludes that philosophy has nothing of importance to tell us about the real world, and that only physics can lead us to truth. Professor Krauss, in rejecting philosophy, fails to acknowledge that he is promoting his own brand of philosophy known as scientific materialism.  So what he really seems to be saying is that scientific materialism is the final truth, and we should not bother considering any other alternative. But scientific materialism – the view that a real...

Materialism’s Straw Man — and a New Opponent Rising

In books such as The God Delusion (Richard Dawkins), Knocking on Heaven’s Door (Lisa Randall), and The Grand Design (Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow), our modern science writers set up an easy straw man when promoting materialistic orthodoxy.  Modern scientists believe that their only opponent to control the debate over the origin and evolution of the cosmos is organized religion.  They are wrong.  Another opponent is rising, and they will soon have to deal with it. Materialism is the view that the entire physical universe can be reduced to mindless particles in motion.  It holds to the belief that there is an objective world, independent...

Is God in the Particle, the Heavens, or Both?

            At the same time cosmologists are looking for God in a particle, quantum theory concludes the ultimate substance of the universe is not a particle, but a wave equation.  As Heisenberg famously said, “atoms are not things.” Stephen Hawking, in The Grand Design, questions whether an objective world of particles even exists independently of theory.  Rather, he says that our view of reality depends upon the governing model.  Today that governing model is materialism, the view that at the core of existence is not spirit or God but tiny things and the elusive God particle.  But what we need is not a new particle...

Looks Like Heaven will Need to be on Earth After All

Many religions speak of a better place far off in another spiritual dimension where humankind will find peace and tranquility; where the mind rises to enlightenment, and the soul reaches Nirvana.  Others look to the Second Coming when a messiah will appear on Earth and establish the Kingdom of God.   In this kingdom, presumably, humankind will finally be united as one, brotherhood will reign, and there will be peace throughout the land.             In each one of these utopian worlds, people will necessarily be the actors in the story.  And the only way for this story to be worthy of a place called heaven is...
