From New Age to Great Age
In what we called The New Age, we began to mix and match beliefs, and could take the best parts of any spiritual, religious or philosophic belief system(s) to find our own version of the truth, guided by the voice within, the spirit, the soul. And now comes The Great Age, when science begins the exciting process of validating some of the more unifying ideas and concepts about the nature of reality, both manifest and unmanifest, which spiritual belief systems have asserted for thousands of years. Even the major religions have, at their mystical core, some of the more ecumenically appealing, pantheistic ideas of cosmology and creation that seem to be squaring off with the new science. Although the major religions certainly do seem to need an overhaul, a reformation to discard old dogma and out-dated ideas. In this Great Age,in light of our new understanding of the physics of consciousness, the spiritual belief systems that address the multi-dimensional nature of reality, our interconnection and oneness, and how our vibrational energy and intention affect the fabric of reality itself, will be the ones that pass the test of scientific validation.
"We can ignore mystics and spiritualists who try to wake us up. Are we going to ignore our revered scientists, physicists, and thinkers also? It is your decision. The experimenter influences every experiment. The creator of the experience and the intention of the creator influences every experience. You and I are the creators of all the experiences that ever happen in this ongoing process of life.
What is going on out there is totally dependent upon what in going on in here. When what is going on in here is based in love and awareness, we will change the world, as we know it. What a beautiful, extraordinary concept. When you take it to heart, you understand more fully why you are so important to the world right now. You are the one who brings the love and change the world so desperately needs".
Swami’s & Scientists
The parallels between science and spirituality are now becoming clearer, thanks to new discoveries about what exists or occurs at the quantum level of our reality. The words and ideas of ancient spiritual mystics and scientists, regarding the cosmology of creation, are starting to sound similar.
Is Everything a "Black Whole"?
As mentioned, in recent times, interesting ideas have emerged, like those of Nassim Haramein, who co-wrote the Haramein-Rauscher metric, which revealed that "empty space produces the world". This idea is captured in his recent video: "Everything is a Black Whole". His work in physics asserts not only that the "something" of matter has clearly been shown to be emanating from nothing, but that there is evidence of a "something to the nothing". That what we perceive as empty space is emanating from an unseen source of manifest creation, and that our world could be but a reflection of higher dimensions that exist beyond the physical.
One Big Thought?
John Hagelin, Phd, professor of Physics at Maharishi University, implies that this underlying fabric of the universe is intelligent, or conscious:
“What we have discovered at the core basis of the universe is a single universal field of intelligence that unites gravity with electromagnetism, light with radioactivity and the nuclear force. All the particles and forces of nature are all ripples on the same ocean of existence in the unified field or Quantum Superstring. All matter arises from this field of infinite possibility, from pure abstract potential. Our consciousness is composed of the vibrational waves in this unified field, which means all life is fundamentally one, as it arises from the same source. This reveals that the self is universal, which is the very definition of enlightenment”.
Hagelin explains that Quantum Superstring Theory assumes that at least 11 dimensions of reality exist, most of which lie beyond what can be detected or measured here in our 3 dimensional reality. As these unseen dimensions are believed to forming our reality, the parallels between what scientist are saying about the ultimate source of creation, and what saints, sages, swami’s and shamans have said over the centuries, especially in regard to the planes, or vibrational and dimensional levels, does start to sound very similar.
Communication beyond Space and Time?
Physicist Dr Amit Goswami, from the University of Oregon, echoes the same theme as Dr Hagelin, per his quote:
“Consciousness is the very ground of being”
Dr Goswami’s goal is to discover how consciousness creates the material world, he believes:
“the existence of God is being revealed in the signature of Quantum Physics” and that: “Quantum Physics says every object is a possibility, so there has to be a non-material entity that chooses the actual event from the process of these possibilities".
Goswani also asserts that that the universe emanates from consciousness, which is why he calls himself a Quantum Activist, per his quote:
When we change ourselves, we change the world simultaneously.”
Goswami urges us to re-examine our reductionist materialist, empiricism, which has really only been around for the last 5 to 6 decades. He points out that before materialism, we had dualism, where mind and matter were one. Within the latest theories of modern Quantum Physics, mind and matter are once again connected. And, like in centuries before, that unseen, potentially spiritual forces were integral to our cosmology. Goswami talks about the science within consciousness, and how the paradigm is shifting from a materialistic world view into one that incorporates spirituality and the mystic traditions. In Quantum Physical Theory, there is the concept of a non-local, signal-less communication outside of space & time, which Goswami believes could be being moderated by consciousness:
“This relates to religious notions of God, as it is positive and life affirming. The materialist viewpoint tends to be pessimistic, and doesn't find value or meaning in the world..........As you become a connoisseur of consciousness, you begin to see that we are more than just our material bodies. That we have a vital body that we feel, and it is the coupling of this vital energy with the physical organ, that is what gives us vitality, when this coupling is weakened, that's when we fall sick"
Goswami foresees humankind evolving over the next centuries, integrating emotions and thought in a more balanced way. People will learn how to harness the energies of love, and access more of the intuitive mind, he said. He believes the totality of anomalous data, rejected by materialistic science adds up to something that can be explained by the cosmology expressed in the ancient Hindu texts he has studied in his life.
