What the bleep do we know?
(Complete dialog of film)
Are all realities existing simultaneously?
Is there a possibility that all potentials exist side by side?
Have you ever seen yourself through the eyes of someone else that you have become and looked at yourself trough the eyes of the ultimate observer?
Who are we?
Where do we come from?
What should we do and where are we going?
Why are we here? Well that is the ultimate question, isn’t it?
What is reality?
What I thought was unreal, now for me seems in some ways to more real than what we think to be real which seems now more to be unreal.
We can’t explain it, and anybody who gets too lost in try, anybody who spends too much time trying to explain it is likely to get lost forever down the rabbit hole of mysteriousness. The more you look at quantum physics the more mysterious and wondrous it becomes.
Quantum physics, very succinctly speaking is a physics of possibilities.
These are addressing questions of how the word feels to us, of if weather there is a difference between the way the world feels to us and the way it really is.
Have you ever thought about what thoughts are made of?
I think some of the things we’re seeing with the children today, is a sign that the culture is in the wrong paradigm and not appreciating the power of thought.
Every age, every generation has its built-in assumptions – that the world is flat, or that the world is round, et cetera. There are hundreds of hidden assumptions. Things we take for granted, that may or not may be true. Of course in the vast majority of cases, historically, these things aren’t true. So presumably, if history is any guide, much about what we take for granted about the world simply isn’t true. But we are looked into these precepts without even knowing it oftentimes. That’s a paradigm.
Modern materialism strips people of the need to feel responsible and often enough so does religion. But I think if you take quantum mechanics seriously enough it puts the responsibility squarely in your lap and it does not give answers that are clear-cut and comforting. It says, yes, the world is a very big place. It’s very mysterious. Mechanism is not the answer, but I’m not gonna tell you what the answer is, because you are old enough to decide for yourself.
Is everyone a mystery? Is everybody an enigma? They most certainly are. Asking yourself these deeper questions opens new ways of being in the world. It brings in a breath of fresh air. It makes life more joyful. The real trick to life is not to be in the known but to be in the mystery.
Why do we keep recreating the same reality? Why do we keep having the same relationships? Why do we keep getting the same jobs over and over again? In this infinite sea of potentials that exist around us how come we keep re-creating the same realities? Isn’t it amazing that we have options and potentials that exist but we are unaware of them? Is it possible that we’re so conditioned to our daily lives, so conditioned to the way we create our lives, that we buy the idea that we have no control at all? We have been conditioned to believe that the external world is more real than the internal world. This new model of science says just the opposite. It says what’s happening within us will create what is happening outside of us.
There is a physical reality that is absolutely rock-solid and yet it only comes into existence when it bumps up against some other piece of physical reality. That other piece may be us, and of course, we’re partial to those moments, but it doesn’t have to be either. You know, it could be just some incidental rock comes flying along and interacts with this fuzzy mass of stuff and sure enough, it provokes it into a particular state of existence.
There were philosophers in the past that said, “Look, if I kick a rock and I hurt my toe, that’s real. I feel that. It feels real. It’s vivid. And that means that it’s reality” But it is still an experience, anc it’s still this person’s perception of it being real. Scientific experiments have shown that if we take a person and hook their brains up to certain PET scans or computer technology and ask them to look at a certain object and they watch, certain areas of the brain light up. And then they’ve asked them to close their eyes and now imagine that same object. And when they imagine the same object it produced the same areas of the brain to light up as if they were actually visually looking at it. So it caused scientists to back up and ask this question: So who sees then? Does the brain see? Or do the eyes see? And what is reality? Is reality what we’re seeing with our brains or is reality what we are seeing with our eyes? And the truth is that the brain does not know the difference between what it sees in its environment and what it remembers because the same specific neural nets are then firing.
So then it asks he question: What is reality?
We are bombarded by huge amounts of information and it’s coming into our bodies and we are processing it, coming in through our sense organs, and it’s percolating up and up and at each step we’re eliminating information and finally what is bubbling up to consciousness is the one that’s the most self-serving.
The brain processes 400 billion bits of information a second, but we are only aware of 2ooo of those. But our awareness of those 2000 bits of information are just about the environment, our body and about time.
We are living in a world where all we see is the tip of the iceberg, the classical tip of an immense quantum mechanical iceberg. If the brain is processing 400 billion bits of information and our awareness is only on 2000. That means reality’s happening in the brain all the time. It’s receiving that information, and yet we haven’t integrated it.
The eyes are like the lens. But the tape that’s really seeing is the back of the brain. It’s called the visual cortex. It’s right back there. It’s like this camera and it’s tape.
Did you know that the brain imprints what it has the ability to see? This is important. For example: This camera is seeing a lot more around me than what is here, because it has no objection and no judgement.
The only movie that’s playing in the brain is what we have the ability to see. So is it possible our eyes, our cameras, see more than what our brain has the ability to consciously project?
Well, the way our brain is wired up we only see what we believe is possible. We match patterns that already exist within ourselves through conditioning. So a wonderful story that I believe is true, is that when the Indians – the Native American Indians – on the Caribbean Island saw Columbus’s ships approaching, they could not see them at all. Because it was so unlike anything they had ever seen before – they couldn’t see it.
When Columbus’s armada landed in the Caribbean, none of the natives were able to see the ship, even though they excised on the horizon. The reason that they never saw the ships was because they had no knowledge in their brains, or no experience, that clipper ships existed. So the shaman starts to notice that there are ripples out in the ocean, but he sees no ship. And he starts to wonder what’s causing the effect. So everyday he goes out and looks and looks and looks. And after a period of time, he’s able to see the ships. And once he sees the ships, he tells everybody else that ships exist out there. Because everybody trusted and believed in him, they saw them also.
We create reality. We are reality-producing machines. We create the effects of reality all the time. We always perceive something after reflection in the mirror of memory.
As far as whether or not we’re just living in a big holodeck or not, it’s a question we don’t necessarily have a good answer to. I think this is a big philosophical problem we have to deal with in terms of what science can say about our world because we are always the observer in science. So we are still always constrained but what is ultimately coming into the human brain that allows us to see and perceive the things we do. So it is conceivable that all of this really is is just a great illusion, that we have no way of really getting outside of to see what is really out there.
Your brain doesn’t know the difference between what’s taking place out there and what’ taking place in there.
There is no “out there” out there independent of what’s going on in here.
There actually are choices in the direction of how our life can go that are contingent upon small-level quantum effects not being washed out.
First of all, let’s talk about the subatomic world and then we’ll talk about what it’s telling about our reality. The first thing I wann tell you about the subatomic world is it’s totally a fantasy created by mad physicists trying to figure out what the heck is going on when they do these little experiments. By little experiments, I mean big energy in little spaces in little pieces of time. It gets pretty nutty at that realm of things and so subatomic physics was invented to try to figure that all out. We need a new science down there and it’s called quantum physics and it is subject to a whole range of debatable hypotheses, thoughts, feelings, intuitions as to what the heck is really going on.
Matter is not what we have long thought it to be. To the scientists, matter has always been thought of as sort of the ultimate in that which is static and predictable. Within all the atoms and molecules, all the space within them the particles take up an insignificant amount of the volume of an atom or molecule, the fundamental particles. The rest of it is vacuum.
What seems to happen is that particles appear and disappear all the time. So where do they go when they are not here? Now, that question is tricky. I’m gonna give you two answers – Answer number one: They go into an alternative universe where the people in that universe are asking the same question about those particles when they come in our universe. They say, “Where do they go?”
There is a great mystery called the mystery of the direction of time. There’s a certain sense in which the fundamental laws of physics that we have don’t make any interesting distinctions, say, between past and future. For example, it’s a puzzle from the standpoint of the fundamental laws of physics why we should be able to remember the past and not have the same kind of epistemic access to the future. It is a puzzle from the standpoint of these laws why we should think something like by acting now we can affect the future but not the past. These things – that we have a different kind of epistemic access to the past and future, that we have a different kind of control by acting now over the future than we do over the past - these things are so fundamental to the way we experience the world that it seems to me, not to be curious about them is to be yu know, three-quarters of the way to being dead.
The universe is mostly empty. We like to think of space as empty and matter as solid. But in fact, there is essentially nothing to matter whatsoever. It is completely insubstantial. Take a look at an atom. We think it is kind of a hard ball. Then we say, “Oh, well, not really”. “It’s this little tiny point of really dense matter right at the center surrounded by a kind of fluffy probability cloud of electrons popping in and out of existence”. But then it turns out that that’s no even right. Even the nucleus which we think of as so dense pops in and out of existence just as readily as the electrons do. The most solid thing you can say about all this insubstantial matter is that it is more like a thought. It’s like a concentrated bit of information.
What makes up things are no more things, but what makes up things are ideas, concepts, information.
It’s only in conscious experience that it seems that we move forward in time. In quantum theory, you can also go backward in time.
When you ain’t looking it’s like a wave. When you are looking it’s like a particle. When you are not looking, there are waves of possibility. When you are looking, there are particles of experience. A particle which we think of as a solid thing really exists in a so-called “superposition” a spread out wave of possible locations and it is in all of those at once. He instance you check on it, it snaps into just one of those possible position.
Quantum superposition implies that a particle can be in two or more places or states simultaneously. And this is a very bizarre concept and one of the hallmarks of the quantum world.
How can a system or a object be in two or more states at the same time? It is very easy – instead of thinking of things as things we all have a habit if thinking that everything around us is already a thing existing without my input, without my choice. We have to banish that kind of thinking. Instead you really have to recognize that even the material world around us, the chairs, the tables - camera included – all of these are nothing but possible movements of consciousness. And I am choosing moment to moment out of these movements to bring my actual experience into manifestation. This is the only radical thinking that you need to do. But it is so radical – it is so difficult, because our tendency is that the world is already out there, independent of my experience.
It is not. Quantum physics has been so clear about it. Heisenberg himself, codiscoverer of quantum physics said atoms are not things, they are only tendencies. So instead of thinking of things you have to think of possibilities. They’re all possibilities of consciousness.
You now can see in numerous labs around the United States objects that are large enough to be seen by the naked eye and they are in two places simultaneously. You can take actually take a photograph of that. Now, I suppose if you showed a photograph, they’d say, “Oh great, here is this nice blob of coloured light, and I see there’s a bit of it over here and another bit – so you’ve got a picture of tow dots. What’s the big deal? You say, “Look right in the chamber. You can see it right there” “I see two things there.” “No, no. That’s not two things – that’s one thing. It’s the same thing in two places”. I am not sure that people’s jaw would drop about it, because I think – I don’t think people really believe it. And I don’t mean that people say, “Oh. You’re lying,” or “Oh, the scientists are confused.” I think it is so mysterious that you can’t even understand how amazing it is. And then furthermore, you’ve seen Star Trek and what not. “Beam me up, Scotty.” So it all seems sort of “Oh well, what does that really mean?” But you’ve gotta really stop and think about what it means. That it is the same object and it’s in two places at once!
When people tinker in the lab and they get angry about things, and they have lunch and they go home and they lead their lives just as though nothing utterly astonishing is happening because that’s how you have to go about it. And yet, there’s this completely amazing magic sitting right in front of our eyes.
Quantum physics calculates only possibilities but if we accept this then the question immediately comes: who, what chooses among these possibilities to bring the actual event of experience? So we directly, immediately see that consciousness must be involved. The observer can not be ignored. We know what an observer does from a point of view of quantum physics but we don’t know who or what the observer actually is. Doesn’t mean we haven’t fried to find an answer. We’ve looked. We’ve gone inside of your head. We’ve gone into every orifice you have to find something called an observer. And there is nobody home. There is nobody in the brain! There is nobody in the cortical regions of the brain. There is nobody in the sub-cortical regions of the limbic regions of the brain. There is nobody there called an observer. And yet, we all have this experience of being something called an observer observing the world out there.
Is this the observer and which is so intricate to understanding the wacky, weird world of quantum particles and how they react? Is this then the observer?
In my model the observer is the spirit inside the four-layer biobodysuit. And so, it’s like the ghost in the machine. It is the consciousness that’s driving the vehicle and it is observing the surround. The four layers of the bio bodysuit have all kinds of sensory systems to pick up signatures from the surround.
In Washington D.C. the so-called murder capital of the world there was a big experiment in the summer of 1993 where 4000 volunteers came from a hundred countries to collectively meditate for long periods of time throughout the day. It was predicted in advance that with such a sized group you would have a 25% drop in violent crime as defined by the F:B:I: I Washington that summer. Well, the chief of police went on television saying that, “Look, it’s gonna take two feet of snow to reduce crime by 25% in Washington D.C. this summer. But by the end, the police department became a collaborator and author of this study because the results in fact showed a 25% drop in violent crime in Washington D.C. which we could predict on the basic of 48 previous studies that had already been done on a smaller scale.
This leads naturally to wonder do people, are people affecting the world of reality that they see? You betcha they are! Every single one of us affects the reality that we see even if we try to hide from that and play victim, we all are doing it.
Mister Emoto from Japan became terribly interested in the molecular structure of water and what affects it. Now, water is the most receptive of the four elements. Mr Emoto thought perhaps it would respond to non-physical events. So her set up a series of studies, applied mental stimuli and photographed it with a dark field microscope. This first picture is a picture of water from the Fujiwara Dam. And this picture is the same water after receiving a blessing from a Zen Buddhist monk. Now in this next series of pictures Mr. Emoto printed out words, taped them to bottles of distilled water and left them out overnight. This first photograph is the picture of the pure distilled water, just the essence of itself. The subsequent photographs, as you can see, are each different. This is the “Chi of Love” and we move along here to “Thank you”. And you can see where he taped that to this bottle here. Now, Mr. Emoto speaks of the thought or intent being the driving force in all of this. The science of how that actually affects the molecules is unknown except to the water molecules of course. And it is really fascinating when you keep in mind that 90% of our bodies are water. Makes you wonder doesn’t it? If thoughts can do that to water imagine what our thoughts can do to us.
Absolutely thought alone can completely change the body. Most people don’t affect reality in a consistent, substantial way, because they don’t believe they can. They write an intention and then they erase it, because they think that’s silly. I mean, I can’t do that. And they write it again, and then they erase it. So time average it’s a very small effect. And it really comes down to the fact that they believe they can’t do it. If you accept with every rudiment of your being that you will walk on water, will it happen?
Yes, it will! But you know it’s like positive thinking. It’s a wonderful idea, positive thinking, but what it usually means is that I have a little smear of positive thinking covering a whole mass of negative thinking. So thinking positive is not really thinking positive it is just disguising the negative thinking that we have. When we think of things, then we make he reality more concrete than it is and that’s why we become stuck. We become stuck in the sameness of reality. Because if reality is concrete, obviously, I am insignificant I cannot really change it. But if reality is my possibility – possibility of consciousness itself – then immediately comes the question of how can I change it? How can I make it better? How can I make it happier? You see how we are extending the image of ourselves? In the old thinking I cannot change anything because I don’t have any role at all in reality. Reality is already there. It’s material objects moving in their own way from deterministic laws and mathematics determines what they will do in a given situation. I, the experiencer, have no role at all. In this new view, yes, mathematics can give us something, it gives us the possibilities that all these movements can assume. But I can not give us the actual experience that I’ll be having in my consciousness. I choose that experience. And therefore, literally, I create my own reality! It may sound like a tremendous, bombastic claim by some New Agey, without any understanding of physics whatsoever, but really quantum physics is telling us that.
What is the purpose of life? Where am I going? What happens when I die? Why is there anything at all? What is reality? It makes you wonder doesn’t it? If thoughts could do that to water imagine what our thoughts can do to us? Reality comes down to experiences. Have you ever thought about wha thoughts are made of? Is there a substance of thought? I guess it just depends on what you think is real. The world being possible timelines of reality until we choose. Are all realities in the quantum field existing simultaneously?
My definition of addiction is something that you can’ stop.
There are different worlds in which we live. There’s the macroscopic world that we see. There’s the world of our cells. There is the world of our atoms. There’s the world of our nuclei. These are each totally different worlds. They have their own language. They have their own mathematics. They are not just smaller. Each is totally different. But they are complementary, because I am my atoms, but I am also my cells, I am also my macroscopic physiology. It’s all true. They’re just different levels of truth. The deepest level of truth uncovered by science and by philosophy is the fundamental truth of unity. At that deepest subnuclear level of our reality, you and I are literally one!
I wake up in the morning and I consciously create my day the way I want to it to happen. Now, sometimes, because my mind is examining all the things that I need to get done, I takes me a little bit to settle down and get to the point of where I am actually intentionally creating my day. But here is the thing. When I create my day and out of nowhere little things happen that are so unexplainable I know that they are the process of the result of my creation. And the more I do that, the more I build a neural net in my brain that I accept that that’s possible. It gives me the power and the incentive to do it the next day.
In addiction we have a supreme, beautiful opportunity to decipher the difference between our intangibility of our nobleness of character and the day to day business of how that character is revealed in a three-dimensional world through our bodies. And what we will learn is that addiction is the feeling of a chemical rush that is cascaded through the bodies through a whole assortment of glands and ductless glands and through the spinal fluid a feeling that some would call a sexual fantasy. It only takes one sexual fantasy for a man to have a hard on. In other words, it only takes one thought here for a man to have an erection in his member and yet, there was nothing outside of him that gave him that. It was what was within him that gave him that.
When I was younger I had lots of ideas about what God was. I now I realize I’m not conscious enough to truly understand what that concept means. That I am at one with the great being that made me and brought me here and that formed the galaxies and the universes, et cetera. How did that get taken out of religion? It was not hard. Most of the problems that religion and various philosophical movements down through the centuries have produced have been errors because that’s where they’re started: That God is a distinct separate being from us, to whom I must offer worship, whom I must cultivate, humour, please and hope to attain a reward from at the very end of my life. That is not what God is! That is a blasphemy. God is such a broad thing – some parts of which - most of the parts of which that are associated with organized religion is something that I sort of recoil at is something I think has done a lot of harm to the world, done harm to women, done harm to oppressed people, done harm to the World Trade Center.
And yet, at the same point, we have the epitome of a great science. The closest science has ever come to explaining Jesus’ interpretation that the mustard seed was larger than the kingdom of heaven and the only science that can fit into that analogy is quantum physics. Now we have great technology from antigravity magnets and magnetic fields, zero-point energy – we have all that and we still have this ugly, superstitious backwater concept of God.
People fall into line very readily when they’re threatened by these cosmic sentences of everlasting punishment. But this is not how God is. And once you start to question the traditional images, caricatures of God, people feel you are an agnostic o an atheist or a subverter of the social order.
God must be greater than the greatest of human weaknesses and indeed the greatness of human skill. God must even transcend our most remarkable to emulate nature in its absolute splendour. How can any man or woman sin against such a greatness of mind? How can any one little carbon unit on earth in the backwaters of indeed the Milky Way, the boondocks, betray God Almighty? That is impossible. The height of arrogance is the height of control of those who create God in their own image.
Brain, when it fires it thoughts is likened the landscape of a thundercloud and the synaptic cleft is the sky between the storm and the earth – the Earth receptor sight. And you see this foreboding dark cloud boiling in the sky and you see electrical impulses moving through it, veins of electric light and then you see it hit the ground. The brain looks like a thunderstorm when it is presenting a coherent thought. So no one is ever seeing the thought. What they do see in neurophysics, is that they see a storm raging around different quadrants of the brain. Those are areas that are mapped in the body and what the person must be responding to
a holographic image - Rage, murder, hate, compassion, love.
The brain does not know the difference between what it sees in its environment and what it remembers because the same specific neural nets are then firing. The brain is made up of tiny nerve cells called neurons. These neurons have tiny branches that reach out and connect to other neurons to form a neural net. Each place where they connect is incubated into thought or a memory. Now the brain builds up all its concepts by the law of associative memory. For example, ideas, thoughts and feelings are all constructed and interconnected in this neural net. And all have a possible relationship with one another. The concept and the feeling of love, for instance, is stored in this vast neural net. But we build the concept of love from many other different ideas. Some people have love connected to disappointment. When they think about love, they experience the memory of pain, sorrow, anger and even rage. Rage may be linked to hurt, which may be linked to a specific person which then is connected back to love.
We build up models of how we see the world outside of us. And the more information that we have, the more we refine our model one way or the other. And what we ultimately do is tell ourselves a story about what the outside world is. Any information that we process, any information that we take in from the environment is always coloured by the experiences that we’ve had and an emotional response that we’re having to what we’re bringing in.
Who is in the driver’s seat when we control our emotions or we respond to our emotions? We know physiologically that nerve cells that fire together wire together. If you practice something over and over again, those nerve cells have a long-term relationship. If you get angry on a daily basis, if you get frustrated on a daily basis, if you suffer on a daily basis, if you give reasons for the victimization in your life, you’re rewiring and reintegrating that neural net on a daily basis and that neural net now has a long-term relationship with all those other nerve cells called an “identity”.
We also know that nerve cells that don’t fire together no longer wire together. They lose their long-term relationship. Because every time we interrupt the thought process that produces a chemical response in the body, every time we interrupt it, those nerve cells that are connected to each other start breaking the long-term relationship. When we start interrupting and observing, not by stimulus and response and that automatic reaction, but by observing the effects it takes then we are no longer the body-mind conscious emotional person that’s responding to its environment as if it is automatic.
Does that mean that emotions are good or emotions are bad? No emotions are designed so that it reinforces chemically something into long-term memory. That’s why we have them.
All emotion is, is holographically imprinted chemicals. The most sophisticated pharmacy in the universe is in here (us). There is a part of the brain called the hypothalamus and the hypothalamus is like a little mini factory and it is a place that assembles certain chemicals that matches certain emotions that we experience. And those particular chemicals are called “peptides”. They are small-chain amino acid sequences. The body is basically a carbon unit that makes about 20 different amino acids altogether to formulate its physical structure. The body is a protein-producing machine. In the hypothalamus, we take small-chain proteins called peptides and we assemble them into certain neuropeptides or neurohormones that match the emotional states that we experience on a daily basis. So there are chemicals for anger, and there’s chemical for sadness and there is a chemical for victimization. There is a chemical for lust. There is a chemical that matches every emotional state that we experience.
And the moment that we experience that emotional state in our body or in our brain that hypothalamus will immediately assemble the peptide that then releases it through the pituitary I the bloodstream. The moment it makes it into the bloodstream, it finds its way to different centers or different parts of the body. Now, every single cell in the body has these receptors on the outside. Now one cell can have thousands of receptors studding it’s surface, kind of opening up to the outside world. And when a peptide docks on a cell, it literally, like a key going into a lock, sits on the receptor surface and attaches to it and kind of moves the receptor and kind of like a doorbell buzzing, sends a signal into the cell.
What happens in adulthood is that most of us who’ve had our glitches along the way are operating in an emotional detached place or we’re operating as if today were yesterday.
In either the disconnected place or the overly emotional reactive place because they’ve gone to an earlier time in reality, the person is not operating as an integrated whole.
Along the outside of the cell are billions of receptor sites that are really just receivers of incoming information. A receptor that has a peptide sitting in it changes the cell in many ways. It sets off a whole cascade of biochemical events some of which wind up with changes in the actual nucleus of the cell.
Each cell is definitely alive and each cell has a consciousness particularly if we define consciousness as the point of view of an observer. There is always the perspective of the cell. In fact the cell is the smallest unit of consciousness in the body.
Well, my definition of an addiction is something really simple: Something that you can’t stop. We bring to ourselves situations that will fulfil the biochemical craving of the cells of our body by creating situations that meet our chemical needs. And the addict will always need a little bit more in order to get a rush or a high of what they’re looking for chemically. So my definition really means that if you can’t control your emotional state you must be addicted to it.
So how can anyone really say they are in love with a specific person for example? They are only in love with the anticipation of the emotions they’re addicted to. Because the same person could fall out of favour the next week by not complying. My goodness, doesn’t that change the landscape of our emotional outlook on personal needs and identities?
We are emotions and emotions are us. Again I can’t separate emotions. When you consider that every aspect of your digestion every sphincter that opens and closes every group of cells that come in for nourishment and then moves out to heal something or repair something those are all under the influence of the molecules of emotion. I mean, it’s this total buzz.
So you ask if emotions are bad: Emotions are not bad. They’re life. They colour the richness of our experience. It’s our addiction that’s the problem. The thing that most people don’t realize is that when they understand that they are addicted to emotions. It’s not just psychological, it’s biochemical. Think about this: heroin use the same receptor mechanisms on the cell that our emotional chemicals use. It’s easy to see then that if we can be addicted to heroin, then we can be addicted to any neural peptide, any emotion.
The relevant search command that’s going on is related to finding a certain emotional state. I mean, we can’t even direct our eyes without having an emotional aspect to it.
Now, what about people who are addicted to sex?
Our mind literally creates our body. So it all starts in the cell. The cell is a protein-producing machine but it gets its signal from the brain. One of the things about receptor is they change in their sensitivity. If a given receptor for a given drug or internal juice is being bombarded for a long time at a high intensity it will literally shrink up. There will be less of them or it will be hooked up in such a way that it is desensitized or downregulated. So the same amount of drug or internal juice will elicit a much smaller response. If we are bombarding the cell with the same attitude and the same chemistry over and over again on a daily basis, when that cell finally decides to divide, when it produces a sister cell or a daughter cell that next cell will have more receptor sites for those particular emotional neuropeptides and less receptor sites for vitamins, minerals, fluid exchange or even the release of waste products or toxins.
Now all aging is the result of improper protein production. What happens when we age? Our skin loses elasticity. Well, elastin is a protein. What happens to our enzymes? We don’t digest as well. What happens to our synovil fluid? Those are proteins that come brittle and stiff. What happens to our bones? They become thin. So all aging is a result of improper protein production. So then the question arises does it really matte what we eat? And does nutrition really have an effect if the cell doesn’t even have the receptor sites after 20 years of emotional abuse to even receive or to let in the nutrients that are necessary for its health?
OK, guys. It’s time for a course correction on our trajectory, along the path of our adventure. And that course correction is the movement to a new paradigm, just an expansion of the old. Just as the universe is larger than we thought it was in our modelling. And it is always larger than we think it is.
No one has ever came along and ever given you sufficient intelligent knowledge about your beautiful self. How you work from the inside out. Why do you have addictions? Because you have nothing better. You have dreamt of nothing better because no one has ever taught you how to dream better. Do I think that you are bad? I don’t think that you’re bad. Do I think that you are good? I don’t think that you are good either. I think you’re God.
In general, the field of psychiatry really doesn’t allow for enough freedom of action on people’s part meaning an awful lot of problems – not all of them, to be sure – but an awful lot of problems that get labelled as psychological problems really amount to people making rotten choices. And they ought to be instructed to make different ones.
When I talk “We disappearing” I don’t mean that we physically disappear. What I mean is that we move out the area of the brain that has to do with our personality that has to do with our association to people, our association to places or association to things and times and events. We don’t exist in the associative centers in our brain that reaffirms our identity and reaffirms our personality.
For the average person in the world who lives life and considers their life boring or uninspiring is because they’ve made no attempt to gain knowledge and information that will inspire them. They are so hypnotized by their environment through media, through television, through people living and creating ideals that everybody struggles to become, that no one can actually become in terms of physical appearance and definitions of beauty and valour that are all illusions that most people surrender and live their life in meritocracy. And they may live that life and the soul - their desire - may never really rise to the surface so they may want to be something else. But if it does rise to the surface and they ask themselves if there is something more or why am I here? What is the purpose of life? Where am I going? What happens when I die? They start to ask those questions. They start to flirt and interact with the perception that they may be having a nervous breakdown and in reality what they’re doing is that their old concepts of how they viewed their life and the world start to fall apart.
We’re in completely new territory in our brain and because we’re in completely new territory we’re rewiring the brain literally reconnecting to a new concept. Than ultimately it changes us from the inside out. If I change my mind, will I change my choices? If I change my choices, will my life change? Why can’t I change? What am I addicted to? What will I loose that I’m chemically attached to and what person, place, thing, time or event that I am chemically attached to that I don’t want to loose because I may have to experience the chemical withdrawal from that?
Hence the human drama!
What’s the only planet in the Milky Way that has habitation that is steeped in enormous subjugation of religion? You know why that is? It’s because people have set up right and wrong. If I do this, I’m going to get punished by God. If I do the other thing, I’m going rewarded. This is a really poor description that tries to map out the path in life for us to follow but with deplorable results. Because there is really no such thing as good or bad. We are judging things far too superficially that way. Does that mean you’re in favour of sin and licentiousness and depravity? No. It simply means that you need to improve your expression and understanding of what you’re dealing with here. There are things that I do and I know they’ll evolve me. There are other things that will not evolve me. But it’s not good or bad. There’s no God waiting to punish you because you did one or the other.
There is no God condemning people. Everyone is gods. At the same time God is this sort of placeholder name for those of our experience of the world which are somehow transcendent, somehow sublime.
I have no idea what God is. Yet I have an experience that God is. There is something very real about this presence called God although I have no idea how to define God to see God as a person or a thing, I can’t seem to do it. It is kind of like asking a human being to explain what God is, is similar to asking a fish to explain the water in which the fish swims.
God is a superposition of all the spirit from all things.
You are a god in the making and you have to walk this path. But someday you have to love the abstract as much as you love the condition of addiction. The only way that I will ever be great to myself is not what I do to my body but what I do to my mind.
So if we consciously designing our destiny and if we’re consciously, from a spiritual standpoint, throwing in with the idea that our thoughts can affect our reality or affect our life because reality equals life then I have this little pact that I have when I create my day. I say, “I’m taking this time to create my day and I’m infecting the quantum field. Now, if in fact the observer’s watching me the whole time that I’m doing this and there is a spiritual aspect to myself then show me a sign today that you paid attention to any one of these things that I created and bring them in a way that I won’t expect, so I’m surprised at my ability to be able to experience these things and make it so that I have no doubt that it’s come from you.”
So the brain is capable of millions of different things that people just really should learn that how incredible they actually are and how incredible their minds actually are and that not only they have this unbelievable thing within their head that can do so many things for them and can help us learn and can actually change and adapt. It can make us something better than what we actually are and it can actually help us to transcend ourselves. There may be some way that it can actually take us to a higher level of our existence where we can understand the world in a deeper way, were we can understand our relationship to things and people in a deeper way and we can ultimately make more meaning for ourselves in our world. We can show that there’s a spiritual part of our brain, but it’s a part that we all can have access to and it’s something that we can all do.
We have to formulate what we want and be so concentrated on it and so focused on it and have so much of our awareness of it that we loose track of ourselves. We loose track of time. We loose track of our identity. And the moment we become so involved in that experience, that we loose track of our selves, that we loose track of time, that picture is the only picture that’s real. And everybody has had that experience when they’ve made up their mind that they’ve wanted something. That’s quantum physics in action. That’s manifesting reality. That’s the observer in full effect.
Your consciousness influences others around you. It influences material properties. It influences you future. You are cocreating your future.
Show me a sign today that you paid attention to any one of these things that I created and bring them in a way that I won’t expect so I’m surprised at my ability to be able to experience these things and make it so that I have no doubt that it has come from you.
Have you ever seen yourself through the eyes of someone else that you have become? What an initiation. Have you ever stopped for a moment and looked at yourself through the eyes of the ultimate observer?
I am much more than I think I am. I can be much more even than that. I can influence my environment, the people. I can influence space itself. I can influence the future. I am responsible for all those things. I and the surround are not separate. They are part of one. I am connected to it all. I am not alone. Knowing that there’s this interconnectedness of the universe that we are all interconnected and that we are connected to the universe and it’s fundamental level I think is as good an explanation for spirituality as there is.
It is my belief that our purpose here is to develop our gifts of intentionality and learn how to be effective creators.
We are here to be creators. We are here to infiltrate space with ideas and mansions of thought. We are here to make something of this life.
To acknowledge the quantum self to acknowledge the place where we really have a choice to acknowledge mind. When that shift of perspective takes place we say that somebody has been enlightened.
Quantum mechanics allows for the intangible phenomenon of freedom to be woven into human nature. Quantum physics, very succinctly speaking, is a physics of possibilities. It opens fundamentally the question of whose possibilities and who chooses from these possibilities to give the actual event of experience. The only answer that is satisfactory both logically and meaningfully is the answer that consciousness is the ground of all being.
We must pursue knowledge without any interference of our addictions and if we can do that, we will manifest knowledge in reality and our body will experience in new ways, in new chemistry, in new holograms, new elsewheres of thought beyond our wildest dreams. ‘
All of us one day will reach the level of the avatars that we have read about in history, the Buddhas and the Jesus.
Welcome to the kingdom of heaven without judgement, without hate, without testing, without anything. That we simply are has allowed this reality we call real from the power of intangibility to pull out of inertness, action – chaos and hold it into its form and we call it matter.
How can we measure the effects? We get to live our life and see then if somewhere in our lives something’s changed. And then if it has changed we become the scientists to our life which is the whole reason why we’re here.
Don’t just take it at face value. Test it out and see whether it’s true.
Ponder that for a while!
