It's the summer of 1985. I'm being driven through the countryside
south of Mogadishu, Somalia. Somalia is a land of nomadic
people on the horn of East Africa. It is the birthplace of
the young woman Arda who has been living with Tom and me in
Denver for over a year now. She's learning English and The
American Way in preparation for college.
At the wheel on this summer
afternoon is Abdi Mohamud Kheyre, Arda's father. Reserved,
handsome, intelligent Abdi. He proudly tells me about his
homeland as we drive. Today he has taken us to the beach at
Merca, for a lobster lunch in a little park restaurant, and
for a stop at a town market in Afgooye. He stops the car to
let a herd of goats cross the road. A few miles back, it was
for 2 tall slender Somalis with their spears and camels.
Sitting next to Abdi in the
front seat is Arda's mother Hawa Hassan. She's a stately woman
dressed in her colorful Somali 'dirac' robes. A similar bright
'shaash' is draped over her head according to Somali custom
for a married woman. Hawa is laughing and talking, her smile
flashing out often. She's wearing an abundance of Arabic gold
for the occasion. In Somalia, being skinny is a sign of poverty.
So Hawa's size is a tribute to her husband's wealth and standing
in the community.
In the back seat, Arda is translating
the proceedings for me. Farxiya, Hodan and Sam-Sam, 3 of her
younger sisters entertain themselves or gaze out the window.
Suddenly, one of them yells, "Nirig! Nirig!" I don't need
Arda to translate as I look out and see Baby Camel nursing
under its mother.
I'm hopping up and down with
excitement as Abdi pulls the car over. I get to see Baby Camel
. . . up close and personal! The camels are some distance
off the road to the left of us. Baby Camel looks like a cross
between a teddy bear and a baby deer with its long wobbly
legs and its fuzzy caramel-colored coat.
The little girls have charged
ahead with Hawa leading Arda and me bringing up the rear of
the parade. Abdi decides to stay in the car for a well-earned
catnap. Mother Camel is tied to a tree. Baby Camel is now
huddled behind its mother, its meal interrupted by our explosion
into its quiet afternoon.
I am within fifty feet of the
camels when a shout and sudden movement from the right stops
me short. I turn to see a very hostile bear-chested Somali
nomad with a spear in his hand headed for me. I freeze. I
see that he has come out of a hut. I am obviously in someone's
front yard and he's mad. I had a terrible sinking feeling
in the pit of my stomach. (I knew that many Somalis had a
well founded hatred of foreigners.)
The little girls had huddled
behind Hawa. By her utter silence, I knew she was as shocked
as I was. Hawa started talking quietly, making her way towards
me. His hostility only increased. The combination of rich,
big city Somali woman and foreigner just intensified his anger.
He's shaking his spear now.
Then Hawa stopped in midstream.
Her head went forward as she peered at him. Then she burst
out laughing. "Ahmed! Ahmed! Hawa! Hawa Hassan!" He looked
startled. "Hawa? Hawa Dhanane?!!" Then I saw the look of recognition
in his eyes and watched it spread to his body. He lowered
his spear. His whole demeanor softened. He smiled and laughed.
He and Hawa hugged in the traditional warm Somali greeting.
Just like old friends, which is what they were. Turns out
that Ahmed had delivered fresh camel milk to Hawa for years
when they lived in their old home in another part of Mogadishu.
So here we were. Standing in
the front yard of Hawa's milkman. Ahmed glowed as Hawa bragged
that he had the best camel milk around. And of course, being
the best camel milkman around, Ahmed generously offered us
all a drink of fresh warm camel milk. Arda warned me that
it's better when it's aged a little . . . kind of like buttermilk.
But I was just getting my knees back and was grateful for
Ahmed's gesture of kindness. I was more than willing to swallow
a little weird tasting camel milk, silently thanking whatever
had placed us in the yard of Hawa's milkman.
Ahmed and Hawa chatted. Hawa
the socialite filled in the country milkman on their friends
in the old neighborhood. I really wanted to cuddle Baby Camel,
but under the circumstances, I was satisfied to just edge
my way closer, squat and smile at it. Baby Camel didn't look
like it wanted to be petted anyway.
Pretty soon, we thanked Ahmed
and made our way back to the car. We woke Abdi who had missed
the whole drama. As the little ones were getting in, I looked
back. The scene was once again tranquil. The only difference
was that now I saw a bigger picture. Mother and Baby Camel
were part of a little homestead that included Ahmed's hut.
that I wanted to see the energy of what had just happened. I
wanted a Slow Motion Energy Camera to show me the love-hate-love
cycle. I wanted to see what the energy of delight looks like
when it's attacked by fear and turns to fear. What does fear
look like when confronted with overwhelming, unfrightened love?
What does the energy of fear look like as it dissolves into
I'll never forget how fast things
changed when Hawa recognized Ahmed. And when Ahmed suddenly
realized that the enemy was an old friend.

The Energetics of a Quantum Event
I can now understand the energy of that event. We don't yet have the slow motion energy camera that I want. But I'm sure we'll have one within a few dozen decades (to borrow a Jean Houston phrase). Quantum and chaos have explained the energy dynamics to me.
To me, it looks like this.
emotions of this model are simplified. The
two most basic emotions are love and fear. (Some say there
is only love and the absence of love. This energy will be
explored further in Chapter 7: The Big Questions.) For the
purposes of this chapter, emotional energy is simplified.
It's all variations on the theme of either love or fear. Seen
in this light, the energy in the Somali scene snapped from
love to fear, and back to love.
How would quantum physics explain
this non-physical energy event? Where does Ahmed's fear vibration
go? It is energy, so it doesn't disappear or evaporate. (Remember
First Law of Thermodynamics: Energy is neither created nor
destroyed, only changed.) Is it dissolved and dissipated out
of the system of Ahmed? Or is it simply overwhelmed and pushed
into a minor vibrational status within the system? Where did
my love go when assaulted with Ahmed's fear? Did it leave
my system? Or did it get overpowered and become a minor vibration?
Can we learn to increase love energy and decrease fear energy
- permanently? Can we learn to hold love energy in the face
of the strongest fear? How? And when equal power (amperages)
of love vibration and fear vibration are face to face with
each other, what happens? (Explored further in Chapter 7:
The Big Questions.)
And what do the energetic frequencies
of love and fear have to do with quantum, anyway?
that, I went back to the beginning: The definition of quantum
and what makes a quantum event.
from 'quantity'. A quanta is a quantity, an amount. It is
a unit of measurement. Energy measurement. It is the smallest
amount of energy we can measure. It's the amount of energy
used when an electron moves from one energy orbit to the next
energy orbit inside an atom.
This model shows an electron jumping one quanta up and one
quanta down as it spins around the nucleus.
N = neutron
E = electron
E -1 = electron minus 1 quanta of energy
E + 1 = electrón plus 1 quanta of energy
When the electron loses 1 quanta of energy, it goes down one ring. When the electron gains 1 quanta of energy, it goes up to the next ring.
the really strange thing about quanta which has given rise
to the whole strange world of quantum is how it makes this
movement. It does not travel through the space in between
the two rings. It leaps, instantaneously. Now you see it.
Now you don't. It's here. Then it's there. And there's no
halfway point. You can't have ½ a quanta, just like you can't
have ½ an egg.
In Newtonian Physics, we can
watch X move as it goes from A to B.
Newtonian Linear Travel
Quantum Non-linear Travel
But in quantum, X goes from point A to point B without covering
the ground in between
This is what a quantum event looks like at
a sub-atomic level. Quantum travel is a
'Beam me up, Scottie' type of travel.
In terms of the chaos cycle, what happens at the explosion
point can be seen as a quantum non-linear event. One moment
the system is in maximum chaos. The next moment the system
is in order. One moment you're in total turmoil. The next
moment you're in calm. At the explosion point, all the tension
releases and suddenly . . . you've moved miles (or light-years)
from where you were. Your system's relationship to the issue/new
information that was upsetting it has snapped. The anxiety
is gone - replaced by a new way of seeing the issue or even
a total disinterest in it. The problem isn't a problem anymore.
The system has leaped beyond the issue. The issue itself rarely
changes. It's still there. But the system has changed and
the old issue just doesn't cause you any grief now.
And you're not aware of how you got here. Can you turn around
and retrace the steps? Can you cover the ground between where
you were at explosion point and where you are now? You've
gone from point A to point B without traveling through the
distance in between. You have simply arrived. The non-linear
Energetically speaking, change can happen
in a Newtonian way or in a quantum way. Newtonian
change can be tracked. You see the cause and effect. The cycle
itself (of chaos-order-chaos-order) is a Newtonian cycle.
We can predict that an orderly living system left alone will
go into chaos. And we can predict that an uninterrupted living
system in chaos will find its way to order. The cycle itself
is predictable. As a matter of fact, Nassim Haramein (more
on him later in this chapter) says, "It's not really Chaos
Theory. It's Order Theory." It's about chaos that always resolves
into order. If we can see the chaotic picture big enough,
there's always order there.
So the chaos cycle itself is Newtonianly predictable.
However, within the Newtonian cycle is the quantum event:
the unpredictable that happens at the explosion point. The
system takes a non-linear jump and arrives somewhere else
without covering the ground in between.
At the explosion point
the system either looses energy and falls apart or gains energy
and reforms. In transformation, it comes together in a way
that incorporates more energy.
Every time you transform, you (1) drop deadwood (2) add energy (3) add complexity
Every time you disintegrate, you (1) loose energy (2) loose complexity
is a jump to a higher vibration. As separate things come together
and bond as a new system, new energy is added to the system.
The system now contains more and higher frequencies than before.
Disintegration is the drop to
a simpler energetic state with fewer and lower frequencies.
The units of the system have splintered and disconnected from
each other. They've lost their bond and scattered apart.
Disintegration is a move towards isolation and separation,
towards a more basic form with fewer options.
Wrinkle in Time
does it help to know this: that it is within the Newtonian
process that the quantum leap event happens at the explosion
point? The key question still is: Is there anything we can
do energetically to hedge our bets in favor of transformation
instead of disintegration? Can I better answer that question
by knowing that the quantum event happens inside the Newtonian
Remember from Chapter 3: it
is the choices we make during the cooking time that set the
history of the organism. That history is the energetic pattern
that takes effect after explosion. It is that pattern, that
web of strong energy that can draw the scattered pieces back
together to form the new more complex system. . . or the lack
of a strong energetic pattern that allows the system to disintegrate.
pattern is the system's memory. A memory is a web of energy,
non-physical and real. When the frequencies of the energy
web are strong, it can attract new matter to it as well as
the old pieces of matter that still resonate with it. This
is why the newly formed system has more energy and is more
complex. It has attracted to it new matter that matches its
vibration. This makes a physical system similar to the former
system that scattered at the explosion point. Except it's
better, energetically speaking.
The energetic web of memory is formed
during the cooking time. (Remember that the cooking time is
how you react when the ERI comes into your system and disturbs
it.) The energetic web has attracted and solidified matter
to it, so it has material substance. The matter attached to
it can be everything from the body's toxins to a muscular
usage pattern. The belief patterns have become physical. They
are now attached to the energetic web. For example, the belief
that "I'm sick and weak and I can't handle this disturbance"
becomes a chunk of S toxins that hook onto the energetic web,
making it rigid. The belief "I'm basically strong and resilient
and I can handle this emergency" becomes a piece of B endorphin-like
matter that attaches to the memory's energetic web, making
example of this memory energy cycle is on your own skin.
Think of a wrinkle you have. If you don't have a wrinkle
(wow J), think of a mole or scar. Any skin blemish will
do. What keeps that wrinkle in your skin? It's not your
skin cells. They die and are replaced every 30 days. Every
month you get fresh new skin cells on that skin blemish.
So if I have new skin, why do I have an old wrinkle? (Other
than to fund the billion dollar cosmetics industry, that
I keep the wrinkle? I keep the wrinkle because of my skin's
memory. There is an energetic web of memory that draws the
new cells into the old form. New cells in the old wrinkle.
The cycle looks like this:
This is a wrinkle (greatly enlarged). As seen from the side,
it looks like the Grand Canyon.
memory pattern is especially important after the explosion
point. If it's strong enough, it creates the field that
attracts parts back to it to form a new system. When it's
strong enough, the system trans-forms. It takes on a new
form at a higher more complex level.
An energetic memory pattern
is a belief. A belief is formed when you repeatedly accept
something as true. Repeatedly doing something or believing
something makes it into an energetic memory. That energetic
memory then locks the system's body into a reality based
on that belief. "Seeing is believing" has it backwards.
It's actually "Believing is seeing." When you believe something,
that is what you will see. Your energetic belief is attracting
what you then see as reality. Sad but true: It is our belief
that we are aging that attracts the wrinkles that then confirm
that. Have you ever seen an old person who ought to have
wrinkles and grey hair but doesn't? (And not because they've
been surgically sucked, tucked and tinted.) Keep your eyes
open. They're rare, but they're out there.
Since our mind creates the
pattern, can we undo the pattern the same way? By believing
something different? Of course. But how?
BELIEFS & CHANGE THE SYSTEM'S HISTORY
brain has a nifty device. It's called the Reticular Activation
System, or RAS for short. It's our belief-maker
and our belief-breaker. It can help us change beliefs. Beliefs
create actions which create history.
Beliefs > Actions >
So when we
change our beliefs, we change our history. By changing our
history, we may hedge our bets in favor of transformation
at explosion point.
the RAS works is simple. It screens all the information
coming in to the brain. Our five senses give us thousands
of bits of information every second. This much input would
overwhelm us, so the brain screens most of it out. Less
than 1% of this sensate information actually gets through
to our consciousness. Good system. But what decides which
information gets through?
lets through only that information which agrees with our
beliefs. The information that does not match our beliefs
doesn't make the cut. For example, have you ever bought
a new car? You've looked around, compared, and narrowed
it to 2 kinds of cars: a Ford Mustang and a Saturn. You
decide on the Saturn and you buy it. Now, you start noticing
Saturns everywhere. This is not because there are suddenly
more Saturns in the world. It's because you have decided
that Saturn is a good car. You've reprogrammed your brain
and opened your RAS to Saturns. Your RAS will now let through
all the Saturns in your environment.
Paradigm is another word for
a pattern of belief. Joel Barker is well known for his groundbreaking
work with paradigms. His books and corporate training videos
are excellent. (See Paradigms, Paradigm Pioneers and Future
Edge) His research shows just how strong the effect of the
RAS is. His work is further proof that only that material
that agrees with what we already think gets through. Said
differently, we literally do not see, hear or receive information
that does not agree with our beliefs. If I believe the earth
is flat, I will not receive any information to the contrary.
If I believe Republicans are good and Democrats are bad,
my RAS will only admit information that supports that. If
I hate Moslems (or Christians or Jews), then my RAS will
only give me facts that justify my hatred.
If I believe the world is a frightening violent place, that's
the information I will continue to get . . . unless I reprogram
This is a model of how your
RAS works. It acts like a funnel. All sensate information
(sight, sound, taste, touch, smell) comes into the funnel.
It goes down the side in little chunks. The RAS robot sits
by your library of programs. When it sees a chunk of information
coming that's about men, for example, it finds your program
on "Men". It plugs it into your RAS computer. The trap door
opens. Everything that is contrary to what you believe about
men drops through the trap door into the depths of your
unconscious. Only the part that agrees with what you already
believe about men will get through to your consciousness.
The RAS supports your beliefs
it looks like this. It's Monday morning after Mother's Day.
You are on break with your female colleagues. Sarah says,
"Juan did the sweetest thing for me yesterday. . ." Ramita
says, "You know, I just can't figure out how a husband of
15 years thinks a toaster is a great Mother's Day gift!"
If you believe that men are thoughtful and caring, you'll
hear Sarah's comment, take it up and add your own. If you
believe that men are inconsiderate jerks, who are you going
to hear? Your ears pick up the sounds of the entire conversation.
But your brain will register only the part that agrees with
your program. Unless you reprogram your RAS.
the RAS is simple. That's the good news. You simply make
the decision to let in new information, and tell your RAS
to open up to something new. . . and
really mean it. (I said simple. I didn't say easy.) For
example, if you're a woman who thinks men are jerks, you
tell yourself that you want to change how you feel about
men. You tell your RAS that you want to get a balanced objective
view of men. You tell it to let through ALL the information
about men. If you're a Christian who fears Moslems, you
tell yourself you want to get to know some friendly Moslems
and learn about Islam. If you've always been a Democrat,
tell your RAS you want to open up to receive the valuable
views of Republicans. If you had an alcoholic father and
hate being around people who drink, tell your RAS that you
want to learn to be comfortable around people who are responsible
drinkers. If you really mean it, the RAS will do the rest.
And you're on your way to creating a new history for yourself
which will give you new results when the next crisis/chaos
jolts into your life.
In order to experience something
different, you have to choose to open up to a new way of
seeing, to a different reality. This different reality may
convince you that your previous reality no longer serves
you, even though it did serve you until now. Remember nature's
question: Does it benefit the system?
If you decide that a new reality
works better for you now, then you have to create a new
memory for your cells to form around. You do that by making
choices consistent with the reality you want until it becomes
a pattern. The new pattern must become stronger than the
old pattern before the old pattern dies. Technically it
doesn't die since energy is never destroyed. The new pattern
simply overpowers the old pattern. The old one may weaken
due to starvation because you're not feeding it any new
energy. It may scatter and move someplace else outside your
system. (In Chapter 6, Toolbox for Transformation, there's
more on how to do this.)
an exciting new theory in the quest for the Unified Field.
Briefly, the Unified Field Theory (or the GUT, the Grand
Unified Theory) is the search for the missing energetic
link. Science tells us there are only 4 forces. They are:
ELM or electromagnetism
weak nuclear force
strong nuclear force
No one to date has been able
to explain the energetic link that ties them all together.
Including Einstein. He spent his later years tearing his hair
out in search of the unified theory. (Hence, his hairdo!)
Einstein with his Unified Field Theory hairdo
been mildly intrigued with the search for The Unified Theory
for years. I was moving into Becky's (now my) house in December,
2000. We had a most interesting conversation about a scientist
she'd just spent some time with in California. His name
was Nassim Haramein. He said he'd proven that the unifying
force was (TA! DAH!) Consciousness. I remember the explosion
going off in my head when Becky said, "consciousness." I
remember thinking, "BAM! That's it! Of course. Makes perfect
sense. How else could these wildly different forces become
coherent with each other, except through consciousness?"
At the time, I got Nassim's
contact information from Becky. But it was almost two years
later before I contacted him.
As I was in the process of
reaching Nassim, I was searching for a definition of consciousness.
The best one I've found (my own) is:
connection to the whole
example, healthy cells are conscious because they communicate
with the whole body and know their function within that
whole. Cancer cells aren't conscious
because they don't know their connection to the whole. They
have walled themselves off into a false community, the proliferation
of which kills the host. A person who litters is unconscious
because they are fowling their own nest. They don't understand
their connection to the whole community. And a person who
has been knocked unconscious with a blow to the head is
unaware of their connection to their body, their physical
Choice or Unconscious Reaction?
does it mean to make a conscious choice, in terms of a living
system? What does it mean to unconsciously react?
A little scenario came my
way a few months ago that helped me clarify this. It was
early on a quiet Saturday morning. I was walking to the
back yard to pick some Hibiscus flowers for the day. As
I passed the cabana, I saw that the bike was gone, so Megan
had already left for work. Then I noticed that the refrigerator
and freezer doors were open. Odd. That's not like Megan.
I went in to close them ... and went into shock. The cabana
had been ransacked. Clothes were thrown everywhere. Drawers
were pulled open. The closets were open. All the kitchen
cabinets were open, and food and dishes had been moved to
I stood in the middle of the
cabana, breathing. "OK, calm down. No one's been hurt. There's
no blood. There's no violence. Nothing's been broken or
smashed. Nothing's permanently ruined." As I got calmer,
I noticed more. Nothing had been taken. The CD player was
there. No damage to the computer. I didn't feel like whoever
was here had been angry and violent, or intent on destruction.
If they weren't stealing things, were they just after money?
Had they taken anything from Megan?
It was a very creepy feeling
to know that someone had simply walked into my cabana in
broad daylight and wreaked havoc. I felt scared and invaded
and defenseless and mad.
I got in the car to go tell
Megan. I wanted to tell her in person rather than on the
phone. Also I realized I was shook up, and I really wanted
to be with a friend. As I was driving I asked myself, "Why
am I scared? What am I afraid of?" It boiled down to 2 things:
First, I was afraid that this would happen again. That this
was an indicator of 'increasing violence'. I'd have to call
the police -- deal with an investigation in my bad Spanish
or their broken English. I was afraid now that someone had
broken in, some undesirable elements would think that I
was an easy target, etc. Bottom line, that I would have
to do something to increase my protection: get guard dogs,
put in a security system, put locks on the gates, build
a wall around the yard . . .
Secondly, I was afraid that
Megan would feel scared and move out . . . that I would
lose her as a friend and writing assistant. I pulled up
to the garden at the Ann Wigmore Natural Health Institute
where Megan was working. I decided that in addition to telling
her what had happened, I also needed to tell her I was afraid
she'd want to move. It's my way of facing fear: put it in
Megan is one in a million.
When I told her that her apartment had just been ransacked,
she was totally calm. She said, "You know, about ten minutes
ago, I was working with the soil. I was on my knees, running
the rich compost through my fingers, and I was thinking,
'The most important thing to me in the world is this earth.
Nothing matters more to me than this.'" She didn't even
say, "I wonder if they took my money." I had to ask her
if she'd had any cash anywhere. (When I got back to the
cabana, her money was still there.) When I told her I was
afraid she'd move, she laughed and said, "I like it there.
Why would I move?"
I called my friend Charlie
to talk over whether I should call the police. (And for
comfort. I was still feeling alone and vulnerable.) Charlie
told me that his son's shop, the Taino Divers, had recently
been hit in the same way: nothing taken or broken, just
thrown around. The police said it was a local crazy woman.
"She's harmless. She just wanders into places and liberates
whatever's in drawers, cabinets, refrigerators. Doesn't
like to see things closed in."
I cleaned up the cabana and
called Luis to come put a lock on it.
When I'm in chaos, it helps
me to think in terms of conscious choice instead of unconscious
reaction. The difference looks like this.
~ fear-based: I'm in trouble.
~ knee-jerk response: Call the police.
~ it's about security: I've got to protect myself.
~ small system approach: They're after me.
~ blame: Find the offender and punish them.
~ trust-based: I'm OK.
~ thoughtful observation: What are the facts? (objective,
~ it's about information: There's a message here. What is
~ big system picture: What's happening in the larger system?
~ responsibility: What's my part of the problem that I can
(Like, how about putting a lock on the door, Phyllis.)
Think of a problem you have had recently.
What was the problem?
What would have been an unconscious reaction to the problem?
What would have been a conscious response?
What is a problem you have now?
What is an unconscious reaction to it?
What does a conscious choice look like?
Every decision is an option
between an unconscious reaction and a conscious response.
As we become aware of our unconscious patterns, we can change
how they affect our life.
Consciousness, The Unified Field Theory, and Nassim Haramein.
When I reached Nassim, he had moved to Hawaii. We had a
great conversation on the phone. The high points went something
like this. (It's not important to understand the finer scientific
points here. Just get the main ideas.)
Phyllis: How in the world do you quantify Consciousness
as a mathematical concept?
Nassim: Seeing it as a fractal open feedback.
P: And you've mathematically proven that Consciousness is
the unifying force?
N: Yes. I use fractal geometry. I plot the radius of a system
vs. its fundamental resonance frequency, obtaining a space-time
scaling law from universal size radius to subatomic particles
- describing them all as different scale black holes. Everything
on the graph generates a smooth line continuum, from macro
to micro. The theory is extremely accurate with its predictions.
Each scale level is considered as a resolution in the fractal
geometry of spacetime, and if we plot the average size of
a human being on the graph, the data point just happens
to fall exactly at the center of the graph between universal
size and subatomic. I thought that was sweet, because my
theory describes us as an event horizon between infinitely
big and infinitely small, and using fractals, which are
open feedbacks, I describe self awareness, which demands
a feedback of information.
P: What about weak and strong nuclear
N: They don't exist. Scientists just pulled those out of
thin air. I can prove there's no such thing. There's only
gravity and ELM. The so-called strong and weak force of
the subatomic world are just the result of the mini black
The problem has been that we've tried proving stuff with
Euclidian plane geometry. It's an aberration because there's
no such thing as a flat 2-dimensional plane, so any physics
using Euclidian axioms is screwed. If you put fractal geometry
into 3-D space, it comes out correct. If Einstein had had
fractal geometry, he probably could have solved gravity.
The whole biosphere expresses fractals. Space-time is embedded
And with order. That's another concept they've got wrong:
Chaos Theory. It's not Chaos Theory. It's Order Theory.
There's order at the core. The heart of the Universe is
P: Have you gotten any support for your work, your theory?
Do you have any endorsements?
N: I've presented it twice to the APS (American Physical
Society), with the support and the help of Dr. Elizabeth
Rauscher, amongst others. The APS is the largest physics
society on earth. Dr.Rauscher is a very accomplished physicist
who worked on black hole theory with some of the greatest
physicists on earth. She's published over 300 papers. Some
of the ones she published in the 60's and 70's were approaching
this new theory. So I am gaining more and more support from
the mainstream physics community.
But if you're talking about financial sponsors, I am definitely
ready for a new level of sponsorship which this work demands.
Through the years, I have had many sponsors, but at this
time I am on my own. My team and I are dedicating all of
our time. I'm hoping that the publishing of my upcoming
scientific papers and book for the layman will help that
side of things. It's extremely exciting stuff, and it will
replace the current paradigm of physics. Typically those
big changes are done with modest means and by somewhat isolated
P: Where can I read your material?
N: My book, Crossing the Event Horizon will be
published sometime in 2003. The event horizon is where there's
the balance between ELM pulsing out and gravity pulling
in. The scientific papers are now being reviewed, and will
be published in peer review journals soon. It's pretty controversial.
But then, every significant change in physics was thought
to be controversial before it became the norm.
As I ended my fascinating conversation
with Nassim Haramein, I thought of what Max Planck had said
about new ideas.
know about new ideas, being the inventor of quantum theory.
If any one person could be given that title, it would be
Planck. In 1900 while only 22 years old, he devised the
formula that renounced classical physics and introduced
the quanta of energy. Max Planck's biography says, "At first
the theory met resistance. But due to the successful work
of Niels Bohr in 1913 (calculating positions of spectral
lines using the theory), it became generally accepted."
Planck received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1918.
Max Planck said,
"A new scientific truth does not succeed
because the opponents are convinced
or (. . .) educated.
However, they die and
the new generations learn about it
from the beginning as the truth."
It's interesting that it took
a couple of generations for quantum theory to become accepted.
One way for a new truth to take hold is to wait til the Old
Guard dies, as Max Planck says. Let the next generation grow
up with the truth.
But there's a faster, easier
way. It lies in the wisdom of Yoda. It deals with our own
power over our own brains using the RAS and the intention
to be open to new truths.
what you have learned."
Consciousness in Chaos
have a confession to make. I don't like chaos. I like order.
I like peace. I like tranquility. I'm working on finding
a way to stay there. But I know that what my friend Charlie
says is true:
In my little world
of peace and tranquility
. . . lurks atrophy!
~ Charles E. Carson
So I want to stay peaceful in
a healthy way, not because I'm sunk in the deadly swamp of
If indeed it is order at the
heart of the universe, might it be OK for me to be more in
love with order than I am with chaos? Might it be OK for me
to want to spend more of my life in an orderly system instead
of a chaotic system?
So, how do I stay in an orderly
system as much as possible . . . and stay open to, aware of,
and processing all incoming information so that I don't atrophy?
If I can get out of the Newtonian drag (suffering through
long periods of chaos) and increase my periods of tranquility,
might that be preferable?
my questions, I went back to the chaos model. Think in terms
of the KMC from Chapter 3. Click
here for the image. What would be a way to shorten the
chaos time and still allow the full natural process? Can I
move the explosion point to the left, so to speak?
If I get to the explosion point
earlier, do I avoid some chaos? How? The system has to build
enough chaos pressure to shatter the Tolerance Boundary (TB).
So perhaps if I lower my TB, then the system reaches explosion
point earlier at a lower level of chaos.
KMC with lowered Tolerance Boundary (TB-1)
and therefore less chaos
and smaller explosion
This must be
what they mean when they say, "You can get the message with
a feather or a Mack Truck."
What does a smaller TB look
like? How do I create it? Can I consciously choose to have
a lower tolerance for pain in my system? If so, can I lower
my pain tolerance (my T.B.) without ignoring or repressing
the ERI and getting stuck in Stability? Can I have Order without
A lower TB would come from having
an increased awareness of anxiety in my system. Sort of a
DEW Line (a Distance Early Warning Line). It would mean: check
in with the system more often and more honestly. It would
mean: stay alert for any new ERI. Pay
attention to how that information affects my system. Ask questions
~ Does this information serve me? Is it beneficial?
~ Does it feel good? ~ Does it fit my purpose?
If the answer is "yes", embrace
it. That means make room for it, adapt to it and include it.
If the answer is 'no', then
there is one more question: Is there something here for me
to learn? Tricky question. If your answer is 'no' and there
really is something that's beneficial for your system to learn,
then you've missed a chance to improve the system. But don't
worry, the same information will be attracted to you again
for the same reason, and you'll get another shot at it.
You can also decide that the
ERI is information that you already know (just dressed up
in a different costume). You have dealt with it before and
have a place to put it. If you have no reaction to it, then
it won't create any initial waves or feedback. If it doesn't
create any agitation, then there won't be any chaos. You walk
away from it, knowing that it exists and is not important
for your system.
You can buy in to someone else's fear. . .
you can walk away from it,
and let them go look
for another negatron to share their fear.
choice allows us to avoid what we don't want in our system.
Avoidance is only unhealthy if the information is beneficial
for your system. Alarmist Al thrives on negative Twinkies.
If you don't, then don't eat Twinkies with him.
Isn't the reaction in the
second scene a denial of reality? Yes. Exactly. It's a denial
of Alarmist Al's reality. You say, "Been there. Done that.
Don't choose it anymore." Remember. Quantum has multiple
realities - literally. You not only have the right to choose
yours - you have the delight of choosing it.
I've designed some quantum
T-shirts for this.
Quantum T shirts
In human systems,
the quantum event of transformation can be a result of choices
made over a period of time. Your choices create an energetic
pattern during the Newtonian cooking time in the chaos cycle.
There are two ways that energetic pattern forms. One is
by default: something happens, you react . . . something
happens, you react, etc. The other way a pattern forms is
by choice: Something happens, you make a choice . . . next
thing happens, you make a choice, etc.
The pattern that is made takes
effect during the quantum event at the explosion point.
A default pattern is more likely to move you into isolation,
separation, atrophy. A conscious pattern hedges your bets
in favor of higher complexity, inclusion and wholeness.
We all have wake-up calls.
They are a natural part of the chaos-order cycle. We can
invite our wake-up calls to be delivered by a feather instead
of a Mack truck. Stay open, be aware, make conscious choices.
The Quantum Event
I. The Quantum Milkman
A. Rapid change of emotions (delight to
fear to delight)
B. Two basic emotional frequencies: fear
C. Strong fear frequencies (Ahmed) overwhelm
another person's (Phyllis) love frequencies
D. Strong love frequencies (Hawa) overwhelm
another person's (Ahmed) fear frequencies
E. Understand the system's change of emotional
frequencies in terms of both:
i. Overwhelming a major
vibration into a minor status = pushing it down
a minor vibration into a major vibration = pulling it up
II. The Energetics of a Quantum Event
A. Definition of a quanta: measurement
for unit of movement
B. Simplified definition of quantum: jump
from here to there without covering the ground in between
C. A "Beam me up, Scottie" type of event
III. Big Picture
A. Chaos cycle is predictable. The cycle
itself is Newtonian.
B. The explosion point is quantum.
C. So within the Newtonianly predictable
chaos cycle there is a quantum event at explosion point
D. The quantum event at explosion point
adds complex frequencies
moves toward wholeness
moves toward isolation, separation, entropy
IV. A Wrinkle in Time
A. Energy patterns are the history of
the system - its memory
B. Those energy patterns are created by
the choices made during the cooking time of the chaos cycle
C. A skin wrinkle as an example of a cellular
memory pattern, also known as a belief
D. New cells nest into old wrinkle pattern
because the energetic memory tells them to
V. Change Your Beliefs to Change Your History
A. Beliefs > Actions > History
B. Brain's Reticular Activation System,
C. RAS is your belief-maker and your belief-breaker
D. RAS screens out overload of sensate
E. RAS lets in only that which agrees
with your beliefs
F. You can reprogram your RAS
G. Tell your RAS to let in more information
H. . . .and mean it
VI . Consciousness
A. Consciousness is awareness of connection
to the whole
B. Unified Field Theory – Nassim
i. Consciousness is
the force that unifies gravity and ELM
ii. There is no weak
nuclear force nor strong nuclear force
C. Conscious choice in a living system
i. Trust-based: I’m
ii. Thoughtful observation:
What are the facts? (objective, unemotional)
iii. It’s about
information: There’s a message here. What is it?
iv. Big system picture:
What’s happening in the larger system?
v. Responsibility: What’s
my part of the problem that I can fix?
D. Unconscious reaction in a living system
i. Fear-based: I’m
ii. Knee-jerk response:
Call the police.
iii. It’s about
security: I’ve got to protect myself.
iv. Small system approach:
They’re after me.
v. Blame: Find the offender
and punish them.
E. Example of healthy cells and cancer
i. Cancer cells unconscious
– not aware of their connection to the whole. . .isolated
behavior kills the host/whole
ii. Healthy cells conscious
– monitor their behavior based on benefit to or condition
of the host / whole
F. Moving the explosion point in the KMC
i. Mack truck = moving
the point to the right = longer periods and higher chaos
before explosion point
ii. Feather = moving
the point to the left = shorter periods of lower chaos before
the explosion point
iii. Can we get out
of the Newtonian drag of suffering through long intense
periods of chaos by changing our behavior during the cooking
time? Practices that can support the feather:
Stay open to all incoming ERI
Stay aware of the effect
Make choices that enforce the patterns you want
