BLACKMAN-BLACKWOMAN Series: The Black Woman is the Protector of the Black Man

From the Melanin Man:

 

Caution: Hey fellas, I’m not trying to get brownie points with the ladies here. I’m simply expressing my true feelings on these matters. So don’t feel slighted…

 

I’m a pretty decent player of chess. I haven’t played in years, so I have to dust off my skills so I won’t embarrass myself the next time (?) I do play the game. But I have to say, chess is the best and YES, overused analogies to the game (or illusion?) of life.

Most of us who are familiar and practitioners of the game of chess will admit that the Queen is the most powerful and dynamic piece on the board. That is a gimmee. Just as the King, the Queen can move north-south, east-west, and diagonally. The difference is that the Queen can move as many spaces at a given turn whereas the King can only move one space at a time. And just like the Castle, Knight, Bishop, and Pawns, her duty is to protect her King.

Just about every chess player will tell you that the Queen is the ultimate x-factor within the game. That same thought applies also in the game of Life.

On the surface it appears that the Black Woman is low on the totem pole in terms of respect and value on the social, political, biological, basically in all facets of the paradigm. In actuality, the Black Woman is THE FOUNDATION AND BASIS of that totem pole, the supreme being on the planet only matched by her male counterpart the Black Man. Yet if us Black men were to be truly honest with ourselves, the Black Woman is the strongest being between the two of us.

The belief that “women are the weakest species” is a half-truth; from a physical perspective that may be the case. But on the spiritual/metaphysical level they have their male counterparts beat by a country mile, because primarily the Black Woman has the stronger connection to Nature between the two.

In the BLACKMAN-BLACKWOMAN Relationship Part 1 and Part 2, I explained what the true dynamics should look like between the Black Man and Black Woman: Black men are to create new realities/solve the problems/ provide new visions, Black women are to nurture/foster/cultivate those new realties through conducive environments and vibrant offspring. Basically the Black Man is the agent of change (acid, the catalyst), and the Black woman is the securer (base, the foundation) of that change and how it will be manifested.

 

(Side note 1: It’s popular opinion that women, on whole, need to feel security from the man. Maybe in the physical realm, through finances, physicality, etc. When it comes to what truly matters in the long run, the man is really in need of the woman’s security  to realize his vision.)

(Side note 2: A analogy within an analogy, in Kemetstry (Chemistry), when an acid is mixed with base solution, the acid transforms the base into a new substance. After the transformation is complete, the acid is dissolved and only the new substance remains. Maybe there is a correlation to why women, particularly married women, commonly outlive their husbands. Must be Nature, huh?!)

 

Yet we place too much emphasis on the decrepitude state that a good number of our Black men find themselves in. We should realize that when the Queen, the Black Queen,  is apprehended in chess, the game is effectively over (unless you are the very, very few who’s skilled enough to hold your own without the Black Queen, which is extremely hard when your opponent has their white Queen still in play.) The Black Man (King) does not have a fighting chance to thrive or even survive when his Black Woman (Queen) has been captured and co-opted by his white rival(s). His vision cannot be realized nor actualized when his woman has been seized and brainwashed with a European mindset that is totally detrimental to the essence of the Black Woman and subsequently, the Black Man.

As a tool used  by her white King and a false ally of the white Queen, the Black Woman herself is transformed into a change agent (a male imitation) and dispatched to the Black man to compete with and eventually force his surrender to assimilate into the Eurocentric, Westernized way. Unfortunately and on most occasions inadvertently, that parasitic mindset is passed down to their offspring.

Game. Set. Match.

I love the fact that my sistas are achieving in every profession imaginable, from S.T.E.M. based professions to law and politics to entrepreneurship. Y’all want the good life. Plus, a good number of y’all these days are the breadwinners and have to hold the fort down for your families. These examples only exemplify the brilliance and ingenuity that y’all possess, and its BEAUTIFUL baby!

But ask yourself the following questions, ladies:

Whose world are you supporting and keeping alive by participating within its machinations?

Is it a world envisioned by your true equal, the Black Man?

Does it take advantage of ALL of your gifts and talents that you’re aware and unaware of?

Is that melanin of yours really being put to the test?

Don’t get me wrong, sistas, the Black Man overall is missing in action. We lost our spiritual connection somewhere along the way and, thus, our vision to return to Blackness. Minus the few Black men who have continued to fight the good fight, we’ve waved the “white flag”, unchallenging and incorporating into white supremacy. Consequently, we lost the trust of our women.

So we have our work cut out for us.

But trust, the tide will turn and we will find our way home once again, my Queens and Goddesses!

(Don’t worry brothers! There’s a post coming for you concerning what the vision should look like in the near future. )

 

I believe this to be truth that can be taken to the bank any day of the week: No woman on EARTH can compare  nor equal the magnificence and splendor of the Black Woman!

 

I’m obviously prejudice in that regard ( and many, many other regards), and that’s OK.

She birthed me, she nurtured me, she raised me, she loved me…

…and she is the TRUE PROTECTOR, THE GATEKEEPTRESS, OF MY (OUR) REALITY!

 

I love you, Black Woman. The image below says it all!

a repost: The Only Worthwhile Investment We Ever Make

Waking Times Article originally posted on Waking Times (click link for original)

 

By: RJ Spina

We are all perpetually bombarded with an endless array of investment opportunities, be it an investment of our attention, energy, money, skill, sweat, emotions, knowledge, etc. But what if there was only ONE investment that perpetually yields an everlasting, incalculable, limitless dividend? 

Would that not obviously and always be the best investment, regardless of circumstances or context? But what if we simply can’t distinguish this ultimate investment opportunity from all the rest? It would be impossible to know if we have chosen this perfect investment unless every possible observed investment opportunity came with OUR direct knowingness that the speculative, transient, alluring concept of potential profits and mitigated losses were temporary and provided zero enduring benefits whatsoever.

That kind of awareness would be priceless beyond all measure. 

What if the Mind/Ego/Identity that makes, weighs and ultimately decides which investment to make was a SHADOW, a transitory illusion in and of itself? Would this knowingness not shed total illumination on the entirety of the investment playing field? 

Perhaps this transitory ‘I’, our physical existence and our outer personality, ONLY cares about preserving ITSELF because it is INCAPABLE of recognizing nor understanding what is ETERNAL? Maybe the ego/mind/identity, which receives, processes and interprets energy from the limited sensory realm only, simply cannot decipher nor recognize what ‘actually is?”

Is it possible that our ego/mind/identity construct, a flight or fight based program utilizing the five physical senses interpreted by the finite Human Mind, which are all transitory themselves, prevents us from ever touching our eternal WISDOM, our Sentience, heretofore making it impossible to ever recognize and make the best and ONLY eternal investment? 

Is this why we keep repeating physical incarnations with individual and societal empires rising and falling again and again with no real spiritual evolution unfolding? Is it the perpetual and feckless chasing of sensory pleasures, the fear based avoidance of pain and the illusion of security actually yielding nothing but repetition creating the experience of time?

Could all this be because we keep our Consciousness and therefore our opportunities and decisions confined to those that ONLY perpetuate the existence of our transitory ego/mind/identity and its sensory realm domain? 

If so, where are we to go from here? How are we to locate and subsequently spend our resources on THE single investment opportunity that always yields the greatest and ONLY true ROI? And does this supreme investment opportunity even exist? 

It does…

What is it the only thing that endures? Certainly not your mind or body. Certainly not your physical possessions. Certainly not your beliefs, concepts or your expectations. What is it that OBSERVES all of that phenomena, lifetime after lifetime? 

The Immortal You. Your Consciousness.

Maybe everyone should invest in the ONLY thing that endures, this Immortal YOU. The Awareness itself. Your Sentience. Your timeless, immortal Consciousness. 

When the body and mind dies, the REAL YOU does not and cannot ever die. The REAL YOU, the WITNESS to every thought, feeling, action and experience your body and mind ever has simply endures.

But am I not my thoughts, feelings and experiences? No. How can one be the witness and the victim/perpetrator of the thought at the same time? This WITNESS (Soul) is on a perpetual expansion investment strategy with no endpoint, ever, and your SOUL is the ONLY thing that endures so why not go all in on the only thing that is REAL? Why not cut out the middleman, your transient, fake identity and all its desires, fears, expectations and beliefs, and invest directly in the REAL YOU?

Afraid of what you will lose? The prison of your ego/mind and your suffering is what will be lost forever. This ‘You’ who has the fear of loss doesn’t really exist and IT (your ego/mind) knows its time is running out. This illusionary, transitory identity who owns nothing, ever, has nothing except DOMINION over your immortal consciousness. This entity/identity, the ego/mind, must have your attention to even exist.

Have you deluded yourself into ‘thinking’ the outside world will change by analyzing it?

There’s an investment strategy that will yield only more analysis. And then more. And more. Shed yourself of that investment strategy now. Get out of it once and for all. Stop leaking all of your power, wisdom and courage on an illusion. 

If you cannot figure out how to invest in the REAL YOU, your experience in this life will be a perpetual struggle. If your commitment to your TRUE SELF is not followed up with the expenditure of tangible and intangible resources you have not made a commitment at all. One does not test drive spiritual evolution. It isn’t something to dabble in like the stock market, a new concept or so-called knowledge.

It requires skin in the game, so to speak, and you are already incarnate so your SOUL has everything to gain (Wisdom, Love and Power) and absolutely nothing to lose except its own self-imposed ignorance, greed and attachments. Everything we identify with prevents us from experiencing true freedom and achieving cosmic consciousness. All the concepts, beliefs and expectations you have invested in yield only more concepts, beliefs and expectations. More prisons for the Mind. More mental constructs. More Suffering. More problems. Grander Delusions. 

Invest in the ONE true investment opportunity directly, your Consciousness. The greatest technology that ever was, is, or will be is our developing SENTIENCE and it’s our ego/mind (desires and fears) and its preoccupation with its own survival that prevents us from this direct investment. Let’s divest ourselves of our transitory portfolio of short term investments; our expectations, our beliefs, our concepts, so-called knowledge and our identity. These investments only serve the ‘who’ and the ‘what’ that does not endure. Do not invest in striving towards acquiring more information or learning how to become capable of some skill but rather invest in the expanding of your awareness which deepens our eternal wisdom and enhances our power to act with compassion and courage.

When we pursue the desires, and avoid the fears of the outer personality, we are utilizing what appears to be our free will in a most inefficient manner. We are living perpetually in the past. Your identity is transient and so is its sensory realm experience and pursuits. These desires and fears are not worthwhile investments. The identity/mind/ego/thought is simply a conglomerate of past impressions from the sensory realm. Mimicry of the past. Knowledge itself is really justified belief; a recollection of the past, an imitation which simply leads to vanity and identity reinforcement. Bad investments across the board. Sell! 

Anything acquired via the sensory realm, the realm of illusion, is not a real investment. Instead, invest in the ONLY thing that ENDURES. In the only thing that IS. The only thing that REMAINS. The only thing that is REAL. The IMMORTAL YOU. Your CONSCIOUSNESS. All the books, articles, blogs and videos in the totality of all possible existence can never illicit the direct experience and knowingness of what a LIFE actually is. The very majesty, awe, vitality and divine intelligence that courses through us all in perpetuity. When does the investment of energy, in all its tangible and intangible forms, towards any object (goods, thoughts, concepts, beliefs) within the sensory realm do anything other than temporarily satiate a desire or momentarily quell a fear produced and experienced by our Mind/Ego/Identity? Is this not an investment strategy that should be avoided at all costs since it yields nothing except for that which does not endure? It’s not bad investment strategy, it’s more akin to insanity. 

If one has no direct experience of the TRUE SELF, then one can never choose the right investment. Is this why ‘civilized’ society is perpetually inundated with stimulus? Phenomena, by definition, is that which comes and goes and therefore an illusion. All poor investments then. Entertainment, technology, philosophy, information, beliefs, concepts, physical goods, experiences, ideologies, so called ‘knowledge’, spirituality, all sensory realm phenomena… What of this endures? It’s all very Human.

Does all of this not serve to keep us from our TRUE SELF and cosmic consciousness?

Then HOW do we invest in the one thing that endures, that is real, that perpetually yields the flowering of love, wisdom and power? 

Silence THAT which was born/produces/feeds on a need for stimulus in order to exist. Your MIND. Start there. We cannot deeply invest until we do so first. Fall in love with your own inner silence. It’s time to put the toys away. They may very well be taken from us anyway. Now we can begin investing in the limitless inner expansion of the only thing that endures…The REAL YOU. Awareness. Your SENTIENCE. Cosmic Consciousness. 

Meet me within that place. I remain in all eternity for you there…

Having a Moment: The Black Panther and breaking away from decoding/analyzing the movies of our enemies

 

 

From The Melanin Man:

Disclaimer: This is not a spoiler alert. There will be no DECODING/ANALYZING conducted on this post. I refuse to waste precious energy on decoding such tomfoolery.

(For those of you who wish to read that, click here, here, here, here and here. And here. AND here. There brothers and sisters of mine have already done a beautiful job of that.)

Reluctantly this morning I accompanied my wife to watch probably (let’s be honest, it is) the most hyped Black movie of all-time Black Panther. Previously I told myself I wasn’t going to rush and watch the movie, in part due to the obscene amount of hype it has received thus far. The other reason was because I felt it was not worth the price of admission.

And of course I was right. And why do I feel this way, you ask?

I certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that I don’t need to be entertained like I’m a child (why do we feel the need to still be entertained, fam? why are we STILL exhibiting childlike behavior?)  Maybe I’m in a different space mentally and spiritually right now. Maybe I’ve separated myself from the pack to the point that simple pleasures such as observing Black-African cultural symbolism in a positive light on a stupid 2-D screen does not even move me anymore.

Leave it to Disney (yuck!) to get us to feel good about being Black!

I’m through with all of the faux symbolism and feel-good stories we see in fantasy TV-land that we cannot seem to figure out as people to actualize in our REAL LIVES.

Sometimes I wonder when that time will come when we will cease to decode and analyze the foolishness that is thrown to us by the powers-that-be and begin to apply that knowledge in reality. For those of us who are NOT caught up in that entertainment mentality, how many more movies do we have to study and breakdown before we get the picture and make the changes that we need to change?

I’m not excluded from that question. I’m holding myself accountable as well.

Do we really get what’s going on? Or are we feeling special because we know a little something something?

Now don’t get me wrong, for the majority of our people who are literally SPIRITUALLY DEAD there is obviously a need to do such a thing.  But I’ve realized awhile ago that a individual’s return to consciousness (whether they’re  melanin-rich or not) should be left to them and them only. At some point, for the few of us who are privy to the madness, we may have to shun DEAD WEIGHT until it decides to LIVE AGAIN, so we can do real work.

I mean, there is no way The Black Panther should be the cultural phenomenon  that it is amongst our people. A superhero movie? REALLY?!

There may be one truth that I’ve learned from the movie (or rather reinforced since I’ve been feeling this way for a awhile now) and the hoopla that surrounds it, and that is this:

The greatest trick ever pulled by an oppressor to the oppressed is to have them think they’re oppressed in the first place. “

Once you know who you are and where you come from, you cease to be a victim no matter the circumstances.

Learn your history, fam. Preferably through a book performed through intense research and scholarship (don’t get stuck on white-man validation, either) and not some damn fantasy flick.

 

FUCK BLACK PANTHER! There, I said it.

 

 

 

Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Mandela Effect, and Memory

A new internet meme, related to confabulation, is known as the Mandela Effect. This is a situation where a number of people have memories that are different from available evidence. The term was coined by Fiona Broome, who says she, and other people, remember Nelson Mandela dying in the 1980s, rather than in 2013.

She argues that common memories which appear mistaken could be explained by the existence of parallel universes that are able to interact with each other. A common thread of discussion regarding this “effect” is misremembering the Berenstain Bears being spelled as, “Berenstein Bears.”

The “Mandela Effect” is named after South African anti-apartheid revolutionary Nelson Mandela, who became a topic of interest in the year 2010 by people noticing with surprise that he was alive at that time–since many people remembered him having died while incarcerated.

Observations of dead people alive again are just one of many types of Mandela Effects, with other notable examples including changes to song lyrics, movie dialogue, movie scenes, physical geography, physiological anatomy, and product names.

The Mandela Effect is one of those things most people won’t believe in until it happens to them. Like falling in love or going through heartbreak, the Mandela Effect is something you have to experience in order to fully embrace.

And even then, it often takes more than one or two experiences to break through the resistance most of us have to accepting the existence of something that fundamentally challenges our unspoken foundational assumption that facts and historical events don’t change.

When we encounter something indicating evidence that in fact, history has changed–it feels shocking to discover some of the lines have been canceled and washed out! We seem to be approaching ‘tipping point’ where it’s getting harder for scoffers to say there’s no such thing as the Mandela Effect / reality shifts / alternate histories.

Some scoffers have leapt to the conclusion that Mandela Effect experiencers who are noticing long- familiar words in movies, TV shows, books, and products are most likely suddenly sharing ‘false memories,’ due to the fact that human memories are not fully reliable.

When we consider the matter of “confabulation” and “false recollections” at this dawning of the new Quantum Age, we see that we may eventually call such things “alternate recollections,” in recognition of awareness of the fact that we know that each and every one of us exists in a superimposed state, with access to many possible alternate histories, presents, and futures.

The idea that the many worlds of quantum physics might be one and the same as the multiverse has been proposed by such esteemed physicists as Dr Yasunori Nomura and Dr Raphael Bousso of UC Berkeley, and increasing numbers of scientists are feeling optimistic that we might yet find evidence that we indeed live in a multiverse.

Matrix Simulation

The whole idea that we are living in a simulation (which is another explanation for the Mandela effect) has been becoming mainstream. A Bank of America Merrill Lynch report from September suggested that there was a 20 percent to 50 percent chance we are living in a simulated virtual world.

Many people in Silicon Valley have become obsessed with the simulation hypothesis, the argument that what we experience as reality is in fact fabricated in a computer. This idea has gained traction in recent years with the advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

“If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then games will become indistinguishable from reality.” – Elon Musk

Earlier this year, Elon Musk said that there’s “a billion to one chance we’re living in base reality,” suggesting that the billionaire thinks the odds are that we are living in a computer simulation. He argues that some technology is becoming indistinguishable from real life.

Timelines – There are no multiple time lines being created when we choose one choice over another. Scientists have been discussing the possibility of alternate timelines running simultaneously with the one we currently experience. Some have even suggested that when we choose one option over another, we have left multiple timelines in action that are running on all the other choices we could have made.

The known universe is both frugal and precise in its application. It appears to use basic structures in multiple applications in order to create itself. As a result we find basic geometry (such as tetrahedron, the circle, the square, the triangle, etc.), as the breakdown components of the structures of life.

The choices we make in everyday life is a simple matter of going into the field of all possibilities, which exists in wave form only, and collapsing our choice into particle form… thus adding to the time line we are experiencing now.

All the choices that we collapse from wave to particle remain as an ongoing record hence the formation of what we refer to as Akashic records. Our future choices or time line, personal and collective, is being formed by the sheer volume of the energy generated out of our previous and current choices.

We collectively confirm our physical reality (the furniture, the trees, our stuff of everyday life) on an ongoing basis, so it continues to exist in time with us based on a principle of mass.

If we personally and/or collectively (all inclusive in the greater cosmic sense) agree that any part of this reality taken by military dark ops suggests that many attempts to create alternate timelines has been undertaken but have not been successful.

These attempts can only fail as the full-on energetic mass required to propel a timeline forward is unattainable without all sentient beings here on Earth participating.

Here is the spoiler alert. Because we have free will we can make choices outside of all the mind control attempts. This is why those who think they have control struggle so hard to limit our choices as this is the only way that they can ensure future outcomes of their own design. It creates a major interference pattern when we individually or collectively collapse the wave form of all possibilities into a reality other than the one they have chosen for us.

This whole discussion around multiple time lines created out of the
no longer serves us and we discontinue feeding it any further energy (thought) it diminishes in kinetic mass and becomes a component of static information.

An example of this is our past life history, the events remain as a record of collapsed waves to particles in time but can only be reactivated in the present experience of time through triggers or choice. It has not been running alongside of us in another time line as it is only static particle energy. The other choices that we did not make remain in wave form only and do not construct other timelines in of themselves.

Not excluding the possibility that other worlds, organisms, or creations that we are not aware of that may exist in the third dimension are creating their own time lines. The greater possibility is that they most certainly are. What is challenging is that timelines are not created out of the choices we did not make.

This then leads to comment on the possible attempts at creating alternate timelines for us unsuspecting folks here on earth. Revelations of possible actions being misconception and a diversion intended to mitigate our understanding of how powerful we really are in manifesting the time equation. The rest is just mind clutter.

It is only a question of what we choose out of the field of all possibilities and collapse into the current manifesting timeline.

Continuing to collapse the wave form of our greater inspired choices will create an energetic mass equivalent that will manifest for us in current time.

Consciousness Lives in Quantum State after Death

The Ba and Ka of Ancient Egypt – Dr Robert Crookall, a geologist, became a well-respected investigator with his book Out of the Body Experiences (1961). He advanced a theory linking astral projection to survival. He agreed with Professor Hart (others) that the survival of the human personality after death was nothing more than permanent projection of the astral body.

He saw various degrees of projection involving two distinct portions of the human psyche. One, was conscious but immaterial, and had some objective existence. In OBE either or both of these portions may be projected.

Dr Crookall’s beliefs have some interesting parallels in the Ba and Ka concepts of the ancient Egyptians. They believed that the Ka was a “double” of the individual and that it was composed of very tenuous matter. It was supposed to live for some time after death and both the process of embalming and various funerary practices were intended to ensure that it lived on in the tomb. If the required practices were neglected the Ka was thought to emerge from the tomb to haunt those responsible.

The Ba was the soul of the Egyptians. It was conscious but immaterial. In life it was contained within the Ka. In death it left both the Ka and the body. There is some scientific evidence to support this concept. Dr Duncan McDougall of Haverhill, MA arranged to have dying patients placed on a sensitive weighing apparatus.

He found that there was a weight loss of from 2.0 to 2.5 ounces at the moment of death. The data could not be explained except in terms of something having left the body. Two Dutch Physicists, Dr J.L.W.P. Matla and Dr G.L. Zaalberg Van Zelst report similar observations and data.

They further reported that the proposed “astral body” appears to have a specific weight of 12.24 mg., that it responds to gravitation, and that it appears to be composed of particles that are small, heavy, but very widely separated.

How the human consciousness lives on after death – We man not know exactly what consciousness is, but British physicist Sir Roger Penrose believes that it’s just a packet of information stored at a quantum – or sub-atomic – level. He claims to have found evidence that this information, which is stored in microtubules within human cells, leaves the body after a person dies.

Penrose has argued that when a person dies, temporarily, this quantum information is released into the universe, only to return to the body’s cells if the host is brought back to life. He argues that this explains why people can have near-death experiences, and believes that this quantum information amounts to a soul leaving the body.

If the patient dies, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.

And Sir Roger is not alone in believing this, since his theory is backed by researchers at the renowned Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich. Experts there argue that our physical universe is just a perception, and that once our bodies die there is an infinite life beyond.

What we consider the here and now, this world; it is actually just the material level that is comprehensible. The beyond is an infinite reality that is much bigger. The body dies but the spiritual quantum field continues. In this way, I am immortal

Testimonials from prominent physics researchers from institutions such as Cambridge University, Princeton University, and the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich claim that quantum mechanics predicts some version of “life after death.” They assert that a person may possess a body-soul duality that is an extension of the wave-particle duality of subatomic particles.

Wave-particle duality, a fundamental concept of quantum mechanics, proposes that elementary particles, such as photons and electrons, possess the properties of both particles and waves. These physicists claim that they can possibly extend this theory to the soul-body dichotomy. If there is a quantum code for all things, living and dead, then there is an existence after death (speaking in purely physical terms).

Just as a particle “writes” all of its information on its wave function, the brain is the tangible “floppy disk” on which we save our data, and this data is then “uploaded” into the spiritual quantum field. Continuing with this analogy, when we die the body, or the physical disk, is gone, but our consciousness, or the data on the computer, lives on.

“It is consciousness that creates the material universe, not the other way around.” ~Dr Hans-Peter Dürr

Biocentrism – In his book Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe, Dr Robert Lanza proposes the notion that life does not end when the body dies, and it can last forever. Biocentrism teaches that life and consciousness are fundamental to the universe.

Lanza points to the structure of the universe itself, and that the laws, forces, and constants of the universe appear to be fine-tuned for life, implying intelligence existed prior to matter. He also claims that space and time are not objects or things, but rather tools of our animal understanding.

Lanza says that we carry space and time around with us “like turtles with shells.” meaning that when the shell comes off (space and time), we still exist. The theory implies that death of consciousness simply does not exist.

It only exists as a thought because people identify themselves with their body.

They believe that the body is going to perish, sooner or later, thinking their consciousness will disappear too. If the body generates consciousness, then consciousness dies when the body dies. But if the body receives consciousness in the same way that a cable box receives satellite signals, then of course consciousness does not end at the death of the physical vehicle.

In fact, consciousness exists outside of constraints of time and space. It is able to be anywhere: in the human body and outside of it. In other words, it is non-local in the same sense that quantum objects are non-local. Lanza also believes that multiple universes can exist simultaneously. In one universe, the body can be dead.

And in another it continues to exist, absorbing consciousness which migrated into this universe. This means that a dead person while traveling through the same tunnel ends up not in hell or in heaven, but in a similar world he or she once inhabited, but this time alive. And so on, infinitely. It’s almost like a cosmic Russian doll afterlife effect.

This hope-instilling, but extremely controversial theory by Lanza has many unwitting supporters, not just mere mortals who want to live forever, but also some well-known scientists. These are the physicists and astrophysicists who tend to agree with existence of parallel worlds and who suggest the possibility of multiple universes.

The Multiverse

The Multiverse (multi-universe) is a so-called scientific concept, which states that no physical laws exist which would prohibit the existence of parallel worlds. The first suggestion of this concept was put forth by science fiction writer H.G. Wells who proclaimed in his 1895 story, The Door in the Wall.

And after 62 years, this idea was developed by Dr Hugh Everett, in his graduate thesis at the Princeton University. It basically posits that at any given moment the universe divides into countless similar instances.

The Nature of Choice, as a gift from God – And the next moment, these “newborn” universes split in a similar fashion. In some of these worlds you may be present: reading this article in one universe, or watching TV in another. The triggering factor for these multiplying worlds is our actions, explained Everett.

“If we make some choices, instantly one universe splits into two with different versions of outcomes.” ~Dr. Hugh Everett

In the 1980s, Andrei Linde, scientist from the Lebedev’s Institute of physics, developed the theory of multiple universes. He is now a professor at Stanford University.

Space consists of many inflating spheres, which give rise to similar spheres, and those, in turn, produce spheres in even greater numbers, and so on to infinity. In the universe, they are spaced apart. They are not aware of each other’s existence. But they represent parts of the same physical universe.

The fact that our universe is not alone is supported by data received from the Planck space telescope. Using the data, scientists have created the most accurate map of the microwave background, the so-called cosmic relic background radiation, which has remained since the inception of our universe.

They also found that the universe has a lot of dark recesses represented by some holes and extensive gaps. Theoretical physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton from the North Carolina University with her colleagues argue: the anomalies of the microwave background exist due to the fact that our universe is influenced by other universes existing nearby. And holes and gaps are a direct result of attacks on us by neighboring universes.

The Nature of the Soul

So, there is abundance of places or other universes where our soul could migrate after death, according to the theory of neo-biocentrism. But does the soul exist? Is there any scientific theory of consciousness that could accommodate such a claim?

According to Dr. Stuart Hameroff, a near-death experience happens when the quantum information that inhabits the nervous system leaves the body and dissipates into the universe. Contrary to materialistic accounts of consciousness, Hameroff offers an alternative explanation of consciousness that can perhaps appeal to both the rational scientific mind and personal intuitions.

Consciousness resides, according to Stuart and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose, in the microtubules of the brain cells, which are the primary sites of quantum processing. Upon death, this information is released from your body, meaning that your consciousness goes with it. They have argued that our experience of consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects in these microtubules, a theory which they dubbed orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR). Consciousness, or at least proto-consciousness is theorized by them to be a fundamental property of the universe, present even at the first moment of the universe during the Big Bang.

In one such scheme proto-conscious experience is a basic property of physical reality accessible to a quantum process associated with brain activity.

Our souls are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe – and may have existed since the beginning of time. Our brains are just receivers and amplifiers for the proto-consciousness that is intrinsic to the fabric of space-time.

So is there really a part of your consciousness that is non-material and will live on after the death of your physical body? Dr Hameroff told the Science Channel’s Through the Wormhole documentary

Let’s say the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing, the microtubules lose their quantum state. The quantum information within the microtubules is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large.

Robert Lanza would add here that not only does it exist in the universe, it exists perhaps in another universe. If the patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can go back into the microtubules and the patient says “I had a near death experience.”

If they’re not revived, and the patient dies, it’s possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.”

This account of quantum consciousness explains things like near-death experiences, astral projection, out-of-body experiences, and even reincarnation without needing to appeal to religious ideology.

Dreams and the Multiverse

In this world there could be a copy of yourself making different decisions and seeing places that somehow later manifest themselves in your dreams. For thousands of years people have wondered about the meaning of dreams. Why do some people dream about future events? Why are some dreams full of hidden meaning?

The energy of your consciousness potentially gets recycled back into a different body at some point, and in the mean time it exists outside of the physical body on some other level of reality, and possibly in another universe.

Can some of our dreams be glimpses of events taking place in an alternate reality, a parallel Universe? Our ancestors were as curious about dreams as modern scientists are today. Ancient Greeks and Romans believed dreams provided messages from the gods. In ancient China people treated dreams as a way to visit the world of dead. Ancient Egyptians were convinced that those who could interpret dream possessed special powers.

Many Native American tribes and Mexican civilizations believed dreams were a different world we visit when we sleep. The word “dream” comes from an old word in English that means “joy” and “music.” Today we know that dreams are often expressions of thoughts, feelings and events that pass through our mind while we are sleeping.

When we ask a profound question about the nature of reality, do we not expect an answer that sounds strange? Evolution provided us with intuition for the everyday physics that had survival value for our distant ancestors, so whenever we venture beyond the everyday world, we should expect it to seem bizarre.

“What is real? How do you define real? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.” ~Morpheus, The Matrix

Ever get the feeling that reality isn’t really what we think it is?

The further science, technology and human evolution take us the more questions we have about the nature of reality and the role of consciousness. Is this a hologram or an illusion? Are we dreaming or in a simulation? Do we shift between parallel universes as we make different choices? And what of the spiritual dimensions? Are human beings really just a single unified cosmic consciousness experiencing itself from billions of points of isolated and limited perception? Does anyone know for sure?

Few are privy to the secrets of reality, but the journey of awakening begins when one starts questioning everything. Whether it be the big global conspiracies, secret societies, the corporate control matrix, big pharma and the medical cartel, the banking establishment, the shape of the earth, or the purpose of life, the journey is at first an inquisition.

Along the way you notice ways in which approaching life with an open-mind changes you, and how it turns long-held beliefs and assumptions upside down, forever altering your perception and relation to it all.

1. You Realize that Patterns and Programs Govern Everything and Everyone

We learn primarily by mimicry…. monkey see, monkey do. As a child grows and develops consciousness over time, they move from confusion to differentiation, to situational awareness, then to identification, ultimately arriving at self-awareness. By the time they become self-aware, their perception of what the world is all about is well-formed. The programs in play here affect the rest of their lives.

“We laugh at sheep because sheep just follow the one in front. We humans have out-sheeped the sheep, because at least the sheep need a sheep dog to keep them in line. Humans keep each other in line. And they do it by ridiculing or condemning anyone who commits the crime, and that’s what it’s become, of being different.” ~David Icke

Conformity to patterns of thought and patterns of behavior are learned, and when you watch people closely, you notice that most of them are imitating the examples they’ve seen their whole lives. Emotional behavior, notions of success, relationships, rules, laws, and even love for self are all ingrained programs, many of which need to be undone in order for spiritual growth to occur.

If we can be programmed, we can also be re-programmed.

2. You Learn that the Most Valuable Commodity is Your Attention

Advertisers, governments, media organizations and business are quickly learning that in this new age of technological wonders capturing people’s attention is priority number one. Attention is the greatest commodity of today.

With so much competition for your attention, you begin to realize how valuable it is to others, and eventually you realize how valuable it is to yourself. You notice that what you give your attention to creates the environment in which you live, and therefore the information and ideas you focus on and consume will work together to shape your personal reality.

This is why it is absolutely essential to consciously direct your focus where it is deserved, carefully choosing which ideas and perspectives are worthy of your time and congruent with the life you wish to lead. And your time is your life, so your attention is priceless.

3. You Notice that Perceptions Can Change in an Instant, Changing Everything

It only takes the right scrap of information, the right quote, or the right idea at the right time to change your whole understanding of the world.

“Change the way you see things and the things you see will change.” ~Wayne Dyer

Again, media organizations and propagandists already know this, which is why news is crafted the way it is, carefully framing, suggesting and omitting ideas so as to manage the perceptions of the masses. The crux of mind control is perception management.

When you begin to question everything, you start to wonder if your perceptions and belief about society and your own life are really true. You wonder if they are your own perceptions or if they belong to someone else. You begin to ask if your outlook is based on the complete picture, or if it is based on a limited understanding and a limited knowing.

When you grasp this, you begin to understand just how much power you have to control your own perceptions, and then your own reality, and are no longer bound to the whims of others.

4. You Begin to See that Everything is an Illusion

The eyes turn tricks with light to create images inside the brain using only a tiny fraction of the entire spectrum of electromagnetic frequencies in front of us. The subconscious mind makes a fool of the conscious mind by secretly adding depth and meaning to the images we create. These images combine with experience to form beliefs, and the ego constructs an identity out of them. Above all of this sits the spirit, watching and waiting for an opportunity to break free from the illusions of what we think it means to be alive and conscious in a material world.

But the world we are in is insufferably material, and this materialism works magic with light, symbols and imagery in order to create illusions. Illusions about authority, happiness, truth and success can be incredibly powerful, but upon deeper inquiry, you’ll eventually notice that nothing is ever what it seems.

The rich and famous aren’t always happy or healthy. Those who enforce the law don’t always follow the law. The powerful are often bested by the weak. The aim of politics is not to unite, but to divide. Time isn’t money, it is your life. And on and on.

“We live in a culture where everything tastes good but nothing satisfies.” ~Daniel Pinchbeck

5. You Finally Realize there is Nothing to Fear

In the exploration of the self, fear is the first thing to go, and once it is unwound and cast aside a tremendous sense of freedom takes over, defying the negative shock programming in our world today. This runs counter to the messages of the media who rely on stoking fear to control and to sell, but once you’ve broken through the illusions that create a false reality, and are able to see that love is the organizing force in our universe, fear dissolves entirely.

“Everything is the light.” ~Nikola Tesla

Eventually, upon self-reflection, it becomes clear that consciousness and the soul are eternal. We truly are cosmic beings having a human experience, and we are capable of knowing that once this existence comes to an end something greater and more magical awaits us.

The greatest realization of them all is that there is nothing to fear.

Final Thoughts

Our shared world is created by the collected thoughts and actions of individuals. Therefore, to change the world for the better we must first elevate our own consciousness so that we may overcome the traps and obstacles set before us by a dying culture and a psychopathic power structure. The only way to do this is to turn our attention onto the act of understanding how we as individuals perceive and relate to the world we share. This is how we evolve.

“You have to take seriously the notion that understanding the universe is your responsibility, because the only understanding of the universe that will be useful to you is your own understanding.” ~Terence McKenna
