Uri Geller in Greece – Part 2: Zorba and Biophoton Magnetism

Uri Geller in Greece

Part 2: Zorba and Biophoton Magnetism

 

By Peter Fotis Kapnistos (2009)

The formation of synthetic magnetic fields using visible light could correspond to the Geller Effect.  Biophoton emissions are linked to the body’s metabolism.


In December 2009, physicists for the first time used laser light to generate “synthetic magnetism,” an exotic condition in which neutral atoms suddenly begin to behave as if they were charged particles interacting with a magnetic field –– even though no such field is present and the atoms have no charge. (“Synthetic magnetism achieved by optical methods,” Eureka! Science News, Dec 2, 2009)

Research has shown that the body emits visible light 1,000 times less intense than the levels to which our naked eyes are sensitive. Living creatures emit very weak light, which is thought to be a byproduct of biochemical reactions involving free radicals. To discover more about this faint visible light, scientists in Japan recently employed extraordinarily sensitive cameras capable of detecting single photons. In July 2009, they revealed, “The human body literally glows, emitting a visible light in extremely small quantities at levels that rise and fall with the day.”

After meeting with Uri Geller in November at the Argo Gallery in Athens, I noted his telepathic friendship with the musician Sting, a royal ark found in a Macedonian tomb, and two sudden network blackouts –– on the streets where I live and work. Rick Stokes, the news editor of The Anomalist website joked, “We can’t wait for Part Two!” My second meeting with Uri Geller in Athens was on December 10, at the Hilton hotel.

With us was Giannis Tsolakos, a familiar Greek artist and iconographer (hagiographer) praised by Mikis Theodorakis, composer of the musical score for the film “Zorba the Greek.” Tsolakos’ mural painting of Mikis Theodorakis is in the Megaron Athens International (Athens Concert Hall).

Dimitris Hasekides, the futuristic designer of Image Design Centre (Athens’ wax museum), was also there. The museum had appointed the iconographer Tsolakos to create a portrait of Uri Geller as a birthday gift, and we were at the Hilton to present it to him.

Almost as soon as the iconographer finished stirring his coffee cup, Uri respectfully took the Hilton teaspoon and lightly rubbed it. Its handle began to curve. Uri gave the spoon back to Tsolakos and it continued to twist in the iconographer’s hand. When it finally stopped bending at about ninety degrees, Hasekides took the teaspoon and tried to uncurl it, but he said that it felt too rigid.

Another friend Uri Geller met that evening was Manolis Rassoulis, famous in Greece as a songwriter and singer. Music fans had lately flocked to see Beyonce present a concert in Athens. Also at hand was publisher Antonis Limberis and reporters from the Espresso newspaper, who were in high spirits after filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola recently came to town. Uri bent a few more spoons for his visitors while they sat for press photographs.

Vicky Kaya is a Greek model, television presenter and actress featured in numerous fashion magazines. Vicky hosted the 2009 Star Hellas beauty pageant and is now hosting the Greek version of Top Model. She gave a recent account of sitting next to Uri Geller on an airplane flight. He amazed Vicky by straightforwardly bending her airline meal spoon with his intent gaze and then inquired if she’d ask for another spoon.

When I first saw Uri Geller mentally coil a teaspoon in person, by luck it fell to the floor. The outlying spoon twirled and persisted to bend and move around on the ground by itself. For a fleeting moment, I imagined an army of spoons –– walking along an ocean floor.

The weirdness of coincidental backdrop events was also riveting. Uri Geller predicted on his live ANT1 TV show that the economist and politician Antonis Samaras would become the next leader of Greece’s opposition New Democracy party, although Samaras was trailing behind in the polls. On November 29, Antonis Samaras was elected the new leader of Greece’s conservative opposition party.

On December 9, UFO enthusiasts, military analysts, and scientists around the world were looking for answers to bizarre early morning lights that were visible across the sky in Norway. Visible for almost two minutes, the spiraling tentacle dragged a sphere of mysterious light that captivated awestruck Norwegians. It resembled a spoon winding in the sky. According to some reports, the unexplained lights may have been caused by the failure of a Russian missile test.

On December 14, a day of remembrance was observed for Cyprus’s former president Tassos Papadopoulos, a few days after thieves stole his body from his grave. Leaving no clues, tomb raiders used the cover of darkness, a thunderstorm and a power cut to dig up the former president’s corpse after removing a 250kg stone slab. Cyprus requested Interpol’s help because in truth such a ruthless offense had never been committed in the island. State television interrupted normal programming to broadcast live reports and reactions to the humiliation. Uri Geller cancelled public visits on that day. Uri had moved with his family to Cyprus at the age of 11, where he attended a Catholic high school in Nicosia and learned English.

As I tracked Uri Geller online with his December Twitter posts, I observed that the Twitter time stamps did not match the sky brightness in a number of Uri’s photos. Were they due to a computer glitch, or were they deliberately made to misinform? On the early hours of December 18, the Iranian Cyber Army claimed that it had hacked into Twitter, leaving millions exasperated and annoyed. The motive behind the cyber attack was not known.

How Does Uri Geller Bend Spoons?

The above-mentioned experiment using laser light to generate magnetism was a clear indication that an optically induced “synthetic magnetic field” had been created for the first time. Other findings suggest that light emission is linked to our body clocks, most likely due to how our metabolic rhythms fluctuate over the course of the day.

Dan Eden recently reported that, as said by the Russian scientist Pjotr Garjajev, one of the most essential sources of light and biophoton emissions is DNA. Garjajev purportedly managed to intercept communication from a DNA molecule in the form of ultraviolet photons –– or simply light.

“There are about 100,000 chemical reactions happening in every cell each second. The chemical reaction can only happen if the molecule that is reacting is excited by a photon… Once the photon has excited a reaction it returns to the field and is available for more reactions… We are swimming in an ocean of light.” –– “The Real Bioinformatics Revolution: Proteins and Nucleic Acids Singing to One Another?” (Paper available at report@i-sis.org.uk)

Research group leader Ian Spielman, the physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) who conducted the synthetic magnetism experiment said, “The achievement provides unprecedented insights into fundamental physics and the behavior of quantum objects, and opens up entirely new ways to study the nature of condensed-matter systems that were barely imaginable before.”

Fritz-Albert Popp, a theoretical biophysicist at the University of Marburg in Germany, had been teaching radiology — the interaction of electromagnetic (EM) radiation on biological systems. Using a sensitive photomultiplier, it become apparent to Popp that biophoton emissions had a purpose outside of the body. Wave resonance wasn’t only being used to communicate inside the body, but between living things as well.

With biophoton emissions, Popp believed he had an answer to this question. This phenomenon of coordination and communication could only occur in a holistic system with one central orchestrator. Popp showed in his experiments that these weak light emissions were sufficient to orchestrate the body’s repairs. The emissions had to be low intensity because these communications took place on a very small, intracellular, quantum level. Higher intensities would have an effect only in the world of the large and would create too much “noise” to be effective. (“Are humans really beings of light?”  Dan Eden for viewzone.com)

Additional tests with a photomultiplier showed that water fleas were sucking up the light emitted from each other. Popp tried the same experiment on small fish and got the same result. He also examined the effects of stress. In a stressed state, the rate of biophoton emissions goes up –– a defense mechanism designed to restore the body’s equilibrium.

Biophoton emissions seemingly confer a “charge” on sub-populations of neutral atoms and create a synthetic magnetic field to which they react. This unlocks an incredible possibility to realize totally new states of matter.

Why Does Uri Geller Bend Spoons?

When asked why he bends spoons, Uri Geller replied: “The spoon is an ancient tool.” He told us that he owns a very antiquated spoon –– thousands of years old –– from the time of the pyramids.

“The spoon is sensual,” Uri continued. We put the spoon in our mouth. It sends us a subconscious signal of flavor and pleasure.

“And the spoon gives us nourishment,” Uri Geller said. We use the spoon to receive our food and our sustenance.

I added that a particular kind of ancient spoon didn’t have a handle. It was known as the tryblion.

The household or Megista Tryblion was a flat disc-shaped plate with a concave well in its middle. It was a curved bowl–– like the interior of a sphere –– used to measure regular “cupfuls.”

But the Ieron or Sacred Tryblion was a smaller cast-iron mortar plate in which ingredients were pounded with a pestle into minuscule amounts of “spoonfuls.” Doctors used it to measure out quantities for prescriptions. It also became a standard weight and measure for the seals and outlets of ancient water springs, according to Epiphanius of Salamis.

In languages descended from Latin, another name for Ieron Tryblion is Holy Grail. The 12th Century story told by Chrétien de Troyes, based on an unknown book from Count Philip of Flanders, combines biblical lore with myths of a cauldron or well. In medieval romances Uri-ens is the guardian of the Grail.

Uri Geller in Greece – Part 1: Sting and the Scorpion Tail

Uri Geller in Greece – Part 1: Sting and the Scorpion Tail

 

By Peter Fotis Kapnistos (2009)

 

The award-winning musician Sting once said that he could bend a spoon with the power of his thoughts, according to Uri Geller’s website. I had spoken with Sting during a press conference years ago and asked him what he thought of the “Macedonia issue.” He told me that the English are not taught very much about Alexander the Great. So I wrote a brief outline of my lost tribe folklore discoveries and asked Uri to forward it to Sting.
uri2009a
At around 700 BC, Babylon invaded Israel and supposedly carried off the so-called “lost tribes,” including the tribe of Mahaneh-DAN, together with the Ark of the Covenant. Not much later, a Pelasgian refugee tribe appeared in the Balkans, calling itself Mahe-DAN (Mahke-don, or Macedonian).

arkThe gold larnax or royal box (left photo) found in a Macedonian tomb in 1977 fits the description of the lost Ark of the Covenant, with a star-crown on its lid (Star of Jacob). Few ancient artifacts bear such a close resemblance to the lost ark. Other legends say that the biblical ark was brought to Ethiopia, and that a priest carries a replica of the ark (right photo) during religious holidays. Notice the similarities of the star-crown in both photos.

Uri Geller’s latest TV show, The Successor (The Next Uri Geller) originated from Israel and swept throughout the world. The ANT1 premiere of the Greek version (Ο διάδοχος του Uri Geller) hosted by Christos Feredinos was the prime-time winner in its launch on October 24.

stingAfter watching the first show, in which Uri asked his viewers to put spoons and old clocks near their TV sets, I went through a strange happening on October 25. A few days earlier I had written to Uri about Sting’s psi-ability. Sting’s birth name is Gordon Sumner. On Sunday evening I had the notion that I could hear Sting say: “I’ll give you an hour!” An hour to do what? I thought to myself and quickly forgot about it. Meanwhile, on the previous night, my sister had taken out a broken alarm clock and placed it near a TV set.

About an hour later there was a sudden power failure on my entire street and all the lights went out. As my sister tried to light a candle, she was startled to hear the ringing of an alarm from another room. She thought about Uri’s show, and said, “I can’t believe this.”

By now, pandemonium had broken out in my apartment building. People came out of their flats in their pajamas with flashlights. The shrill ringing sound was coming from a burglar alarm on the sixth floor and the woman who lived there didn’t know how to turn it off. The hectic incident lasted about an hour before the lights came on again. An hour to do what? To complicate matters, that same evening at my place of work (on another street of Athens) the outside telephone lines suddenly sparked a short circuit and our cabling needed to be replaced by the phone company.

* * *

On November 22, Uri Geller and master painter Andreas Charalambides exhibited their joint lithograph book “Symbols” with 11 lithographs at the Argo Gallery in central Athens. I went to the gallery and spent about five hours there, talking with Uri Geller and his guests. On that occasion I also observed Uri bend three spoons.

Most of Uri Geller’s critics claim that he bends spoons by one of the following trick methods:

  1. The spoon is pre-bent or fractured beforehand and is ready to break when Uri touches it.
  2. Uri secretly applies a chemical powder or substance that softens the metal and makes it bend.
  3. Uri uses a secret electro-magnetic device that charges the metal and makes it bend.

Yet none of the above explanations correspond to the details of what I closely observed.

symbolsAs Uri chatted with an elderly gentleman from a humanitarian group, someone brought a spoon from the café next door. Uri held the spoon’s bowl with his left hand and lightly rubbed the handle with two fingers of his right hand. The handle then started to slowly bend upward. Uri said if the spoon is placed on a metal surface, it bends faster. He then balanced the spoon on the metal armrest of a lounge chair. But because the spoon was still bending, it fell to the floor. The spoon continued to bend by itself as it lay on the floor. The curious part is that the spoon’s handle bent up, not down, as one might expect if gravity were pulling on the weight of a pre-softened metal rod.

For a moment it reminded me of a scorpion lifting its tail. In a dreamlike way, the spoon seemed to have a life of its own. It wiggled around on the floor! Uri then picked up the spoon and handed it to the elderly man. It continued to slowly bend in the gentleman’s hand until it reached a ninety-degree angle. I then touched the spoon at the crease where it had bent. I realized that I would not be able to straighten it back into shape unless I used both hands with the spoon handle leveraged on my knee. The spoon ridge was hard and firm, not soft or malleable. It was not warm. And there was no feel of powder or emulsion on it.

I watched Uri do the same thing with two other spoons that were given to him by other guests of the gallery. Uri Geller’s critics should recall that he has been bending spoons since the age of five, and that there are witnesses to that reality. If a new-fangled substance or tiny electro-magnetic gadget that could rapidly twist metal existed in the early 1950s, it would have been sold to major industry, not as the plaything of a child. My own observation is that the Geller Effect is very real, although still unexplainable.

Probiotics: Only One-Tenth of Your Body Dies

Probiotics: Only One-Tenth of Your Body Dies

 

By Peter Fotis Kapnistos

 

Approximately 10 %

 

     

  • Merely ten percent of the cells in your body are human cells. The remaining 90% are “probiotics” (friendly microbes) that help perform your digestion, respiration, tissue repair, and other vital functions. Researchers now understand that probiotics also coalesce in the veriform appendix (a tube connected to the large intestine).
  • Merely ten percent of your anatomy is tied to sexual reproduction (vertical gene transfer). In the same way, only about ten percent of your mind is awake to what is going on around you. Your unconscious mind (autonomic nervous system) unthinkingly regulates vital signs such as your pulse and breath.
  • Merely ten percent of your DNA is used for building proteins. The rest is regarded as junk DNA. Researchers exploring junk DNA today believe it might suffice for data storage and gene transfer. Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) occurs when an organism transfers its genetic material to a being other than its offspring. At clinical death, maybe the 90% junk DNA is horizontally transferred to friendly probiotics that outlast the passing of the body.

Friendly probiotics can continue to live inside convection fields or subterranean water basins. Water is an exemplar signaling pathway. The surface tension of liquids can retain pH memory, allowing water to store molecular data in an extraordinary means of micro communication (for example, that’s where cellular organisms are formed).

 

replicator

 

A vast recycling or transmigration route of genetic material implies that the total sum of life cannot be created or destroyed. Like mass and energy, it can only be changed from one form to another. Life chemistry may derive from some form of quantum replicator (Q-life), simply copying information at the quantum level instead of assembling inflexible carbon-based structures, to evolve many orders of magnitude faster than organic life.

  • Merely ten percent of the mass in the universe is visible matter. According to present observations, dark matter and dark energy account for the vast bulk of the mass in the observable universe.

Sentient Q-life clouds or plasma structures might be able to absorb magnetic and light energy from stars and planets, process information, and move in space by radiation pressure.

The Men Who Stare at Zygotes

The Men Who Stare at Zygotes

 

By Peter Fotis Kapnistos

 

The Men Who Stare at Goats (2004) is a book by Jon Ronson about the U.S. Army’s investigation of psychic theories and the possible military uses of the paranormal. Its title alludes to efforts to kill goats by staring at them. In a Nov 7, 2009 online Twitter post, the well-known mentalist Uri Geller referred to actor George Clooney, saying, “His latest film is about my work.” In a Nov 12 Twitter post, Geller added:

“George Clooney is Uri Geller in the movie The Men Who Stare At Goats? I believe I ignited the story when I told Jon Ronson about some of my adventures with a certain intelligence agency.”

cloonyJon Ronson’s book examines the links between paranormal military programs and psychological techniques used today. The book follows the development of secret psychic activities over the past decades and explores how they are used today in U.S. security and military operations.  Project Stargate, the CIA-run program that used remote viewing for psychic spying, came to an end in 1995, and thousands of pages of formerly classified material were released. Journalist Gary S. Bekkum has researched those secret government documents, as well as UFO information and psychic explorations.

According to Bekkum, The Men Who Stare at Goats (the 2009 comedy film) is more or less consistent, with polished performances from a first-rate cast headed by George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges, and Kevin Spacey. The America government has been involved in using the paranormal since the beginning of the Cold War. Bekkum now has 89,900 pages of documents about the psychic effort provided by the CIA:

In the 1970s, the American Intelligence Community, including but not limited to CIA, DIA, NSA, Army intelligence, the USAF, the Navy, and others, engaged in secret research to determine the usefulness of psychic phenomena. This is true, and this larger effort is mostly ignored by the film, which tells the story from the point of view of the characters, some who were inspired by real persons and events.

In the 1980s, Army intelligence did train operational military psychic spies, who were tasked against real targets of interest, including several high profile cases, such as the hostage crisis in Iran. Tasking for the units was handed down from highest levels of the U.S. government, including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to declassified government files.

Jon Ronson’s book focused on one group of psychic spies in the U.S. Army. But if famed paranormalist Uri Geller is somehow related to Ronson’s observations, perhaps we ought to also look into Geller’s military background. Uri Geller was a paratrooper in the Israeli army. He fought in the Six Day War of 1967 and was wounded in action.

Geller’s biographers disclosed a rather intense incident when Uri supposedly tried to “duck and dive” on military service: “His working out of a cunning plan of deception in the paratroopers was not only foolhardy at the time – for what he did, he could have been flung in a military prison for months and suffered a stain on his record for the rest of his life.”

What actually happened to Uri Geller in the Israeli army? According to Uri, a miraculous switchover incident took place, with a machine gun. (‘Ben Gunn,’ says you, ‘has reasons of his own.’) But there was no one he could tell. “His first thought was that God had intervened, and as he has never had any other explanation for it, that tends to remain his belief.”

Although Geller took a bullet through his left hand in the Six Day War, he still headed a crack unit to knock out a pillbox. After being shot at twice, he fired his gun and killed a Jordanian soldier. Shortly later, slices of metal flying off a stricken tank, or possibly bullets, hit Geller again. “He felt a blast, sensed something entering his right arm and the left side of his forehead, and, as he blacked out, assumed with resignation that he was dead.”

Is there anything in the army records to suggest that Uri Geller might be able to stop someone’s heart by staring at him or her? Uri has been filmed staring at fertilized cells (zygotes) and plant seeds in order to make them germinate and sprout. But do certain psychic techniques involve martial arts and self-defense? Why does Geller relate to the men who stare at goats? Should we take a more careful look at Gary Bekkum’s files?

Uri Geller once said he had a dream he would die during a paratrooper jump: “He appreciated that dreaming of dying on a jump was a fairly normal thing for a paratrooper to do.” Did something weird happen to Uri Geller when he jumped as a paratrooper in the Six Day War? Did he in some way set off from this life? Was Uri’s miraculous switchover incident a reference to an out-of-body experience (OBE), or a significant UFO intrusion?

gellerIn the Second World War, UFO sightings were called “foo fighters.” Nowadays, if the blip of an unidentified paratrooper shows up on a radar screen, it’s sometimes called a “Mary Poppins” (the one-liner joke is that someone jumped down from the sky).

When the 11th blip abruptly arrived on Israeli radar in June of 1967, it was far more life threatening than a pathetic joke of duck and dive. Ten Israeli soldiers had volunteered for a critical mission to defend Israel’s right to exist. The radar screens showed eleven. Who was the 11th paratrooper of the Six Day War?

For what he did, he could have been put in prison. His mind raced beyond the limits of past and future. His body was a weightless force, faster than a speeding projectile. His right hand was outstretched. A shock wave roared and thundered in the sky behind him. The eleventh paratrooper was descending to the Mount of Olives.

There would be no picnic tables set with refreshments or well-dressed pastors waiting with Bibles at the moment. Jerusalem was a battle zone with heavy fighting –– a desert theater of fortifications and tanks. Pieces of someone’s dismembered leg marked the burning ground. “Where’s your parachute?” asked another soldier. “Over there,” the eleventh replied and pointed to a near graveyard. His shirt was saturated with color, dipped in his own blood.

He projected phases of his life as several dimensions, from a playful child to an elderly peacekeeper. Those aspects he embedded into terrestrial reality –– past and future –– when his feet touched the ground, and his body descended to the Mount of Olives. Who was the 11th paratrooper?

* * *

Cause tonight for the first time

Just about half-past ten

For the first time in history

It’s gonna start raining men.

It’s Raining Men! Hallelujah! – It’s Raining Men! Amen!

(The Weather Girls, 1982)

* * *

The eleventh paratrooper was at last identified and a background check was conducted. The niece of Sigmund Freud became a refugee when book burning and violent outbursts of anti-Semitism began in Vienna. Sigmund Freud and his family received visits from the Gestapo. Many would perish in the Holocaust.

The niece of Sigmund Freud was put at great risk with numerous forced abortion incidents –– enough to bring about female infertility. It would have been a medical wonder for her to be his biological mother.

The “SS Exodus” was a ship that carried Jewish emigrants from France in 1947 with the goal of taking its passengers to Israel. Most of the emigrants were Holocaust survivors who had no immigration certificates. Homeless orphans had no legal birth certificates or given names.

* * *

Uri Geller said that his paratrooper switchover was under the protection of some outside force, which was unfathomable. His first thought was that God had intervened. The American psychic Ingo Swann worked with Uri in the 1970s.  Russel Targ and Harold Puthoff conducted experiments with them at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). They believed that Uri Geller, retired police commissioner Pat Price, and artist Ingo Swann had genuine psychic abilities. The CIA and the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA), directed by Andrija Puharich, allegedly worked with Geller, Price, and Swann to develop psychic powers for the military.

In November 2009, NASA scientists made the thrilling discovery that the moon has lots of water and could probably support life. NASA’s October 9 mission involving the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite provided the stunning confirmation of water in the forms of ice and vapor. “Having definitive evidence that there is substantial water is a significant step forward in making the moon an interesting place to go,” said John Logsdon, a space policy researcher for George Washington University.

In 1998, Ingo Swann wrote of water on the moon and said the moon also supports life. Swann claimed that men in black had taken him into the wing of a covert black ops survey into lunar anomalies to learn what aliens were doing there. Swann said he had made government connections with human looking moon visitors that were living on earth.

“VALIS” is a 1981 science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick. (The title is an acronym for Vast Active Living Intelligence System.) Dick’s theory was that we have been contacted by a transcendental mind he called VALIS:

In 1973 world-famous psychic showman Uri Geller had also been receiving messages and regular UFO sightings from something calling itself SPECTRA, which claimed to be a super computer in orbit around the earth. Not normally reticent about his bizarre beliefs, Geller has been suspiciously quiet about his experiences of SPECTRA – which may or may not relate to the publicly recorded interest the CIA paid to this particular aspect of his unusual career. However, the maverick, but world-renowned physicist, Dr. Jack Sarfatti, was prepared to commit almost certain professional suicide by publicly declaring that he too had been contacted by, in his own words, “a VALIS-like being.” Despite knowing he was going to face ridicule and scientific crucifixion, Sarfatti went on record to recount how, in 1952 at the age of 13, he had received a telephone call from an inhuman, metallic voice. The voice declared himself a sentient computer on a spacecraft from the future and instructed him to pursue a career in science.

After Sarfatti went public about his phone call from VALIS as a teenager, it emerged that he was not the only scientist to have had a similar experience. In recent years, researchers have discovered that at least a dozen other senior players in the international scientific community received a mysterious call claiming to be from a computer or other being from the future encouraging them to study science.



(David Southwell and Sean Twist, “Conspiracy Files: Real-life Stories of Paranoia, Secrecy, and Intrigue” 2004)

Tim Boucher freshly considered Philip K. Dick’s premise and said that Geller is also responsible for stories regarding John Lennon’s UFO contacts. Today, the prospects for life on the moon are better than ever before. “Rather than a dead and unchanging world, it could in fact be a very dynamic and interesting one,” said Greg Delory, a researcher for the University of California.

Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin recently said in an interview that there’s a “monolith” on a moon. Benjamin Creme, a writer of esotericism for Share International magazine, claims that the modern “Messiah” already entered the earth’s atmosphere –– decades ago –– and is now living in England. The modern messiah-figure is making his policies known to the world as the current global systems give way.

As the “megachurch” movement spreads worldwide and “televangelists” make use of home entertainment media to provide teaching and support to believers, a new inquiry has been put forward: “If Jesus had a TV show, what would he broadcast?” The men who stare at quotes think he should probably instruct Bible and Sunday school studies. The men who stare at notes think he should explore lost archeology, ancient biology or stellar explosions in space. But the men who stare at votes think he should perform more miracles –– in harmony with our current laws. Today it is unlawful for a layman to heal without a medical license (very soon, it might also be forbidden for one to offer security related help).

“Another world,” the stranger said to the small crowd of men. “Why do you stand there, looking up at the sky? He will return in the same way that you saw him go.”

According to Benjamin Crème (and maybe Dan Brown), the modern messiah-figure’s intention is to marry and live the dream of Eden. His legendary wedding feast is supposed to last for a thousand years, to mark the “technological singularity” or scientific era of eternal life.

Some critics may perhaps argue that men who stare at goats use the evil side of the mind. But a more angelic inspiration for Jon Ronson’s weird tale can be found in Acts 5:

Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.

Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied to men but to God.”

When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened. Then the young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him.

About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. Peter asked her, “Tell me, is this the price you and Ananias got for the land?”

“Yes,” she said, “that is the price.”

Peter said to her, “How could you agree to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also.”

At that moment she fell down at his feet and died. Then the young men came in and, finding her dead, carried her out and buried her beside her husband. Great fear seized the whole church and all who heard about these events.

Conspiracy Fun: The Bromance of Bernie and Bill

by Peter Fotis Kapnistos

Bernie and Bill climbed Capitol Hill,
To fetch a Wall Street slaughter.
They put blind Justice on the pill,
And ran off with her daughter.

 

Ol’ Bill was just a lazy Goth,
And all the while did holler.
Bernie stole a poncho cloth,
Known as the US dollar.

 

To overthrow the government,
Was not their first intention.
Conspiracy they never meant,
Until Bill’s new invention.

 

When NASDAQ married Texas Oil,
And mingled with the Saudi,
They bet on Arthur Conan Doyle,
And hatched jihadi daddy.

 

A psychiatric incident,
Sent by a distant god?
Our privacy is up for rent,
Superstitious – or just odd?

 

Implant us with new techno tricks,
A chip in every hand!
Security in memory sticks,
As there are grains of sand!

 

But what the people wonder most,
Is just how does it feel,
To serve as greed’s most willful host,
At history’s very wheel?

 

Fed by the fear of piracy,
And crescent of the Turk,
The indiscreet conspiracy,
Was one that didn’t work.

 

Bernie and Bill forgot the Swiss,
With water boards and tension.
Security they took amiss,
Geneva lost convention.

 

And so the Swiss repaid in kind,
Exposing sordid laundry.
Bernie and Bill were in a bind,
They shared a bank book quandary!

Neo-conservative White House policy bosses suspected that something like “a new Pearl Harbor” might happen. It gave them the reason they needed to launch the “Project for a New American Century”
(PNAC). Irving Kristol, the godfather of the neo-conservative movement was a disciple of Leon Trotsky. So were many other neo-cons, like Stephen Schwartz and Paul Wolfowitz. Trotsky’s theory of “Permanent Revolution” moves from a capitalist market that quickly corrupts, collapses, and is replaced with a socialist global economy.

NASDAQ-traded companies, mostly in technology, responded to the challenge of “a new Pearl Harbor” by exploring advanced surveillance and security technologies.Al Qaeda reacted to the stock market surge by launching a devastating attack before new surveillance and security technologies could be implemented.Encroaching surveillance technology, to read every e-mail and tap every phone, became a part of the war on terrorism. Concerns were voiced that constitutional rights would continue to vanish as intrusive technologies increase.

International financial markets tumbled and national economies slipped into recession. The crisis rapidly developed and spread into a global economic meltdown.
While some neo-conservative bosses were still followers of Trotsky, they hoped to one day be known as the demolishers of capitalism.
The UNI Global Union stated: “There can be no going back to the ways of unfettered capitalism that have caused the worst financial and economic crisis in decades.”

The chairman of NASDAQ during the September 11 attacks was Bernard Lawrence “Bernie” Madoff, who confessed to masterminding one of the world’s biggest financial frauds.

UFOs Explained –– and Unsolved

 

By Peter Fotis Kapnistos (copyright 2009)

 

Some modern UFO myths were produced by the German development of rocketry and jet aircraft, which led to the missile and space programs of the Soviet Union and the United States. UFO sightings during World War II, mainly those known as foo fighters, were thought to be enemy craft. German flying discs were said to be advanced aircraft or spacecraft developed during World War II. Some believe that German scientists continued to develop flying saucers in Antarctica.

 

The Explained

 

 

explained

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1950 – Giuseppe Belluzzo, an Italian scientist and former Minister of National Economy under Mussolini, said flying discs were designed in Germany and Italy as early as 1942. Quoted in the Italian newspaper Il Giornale d’Italia, Belluzzo said some great power was launching discs to study them. That same year, German engineer Rudolf Schriever gave an interview to the German magazine Der Spiegel, saying he had designed an aircraft powered by a circular plane of turbine blades, 49 feet in diameter. His team at BMW’s Prague works had developed the Nazi flying disc project until April 1945, when he fled Czechoslovakia.

1952 – A company called Avro Canada began to study designs for a supersonic circular wing fighter-bomber, subsidized by the Canadian government. The Canadian government soon abandoned the flying disc project as being too costly, but enough progress had been made to spark the interest of the U.S. government.

1953 – German engineer Georg Klein said that while Avro Canada announced it was developing a circular jet aircraft with an estimated speed of 1,500 mph (2,400 km/h), such flying disc designs had originally been developed during the Third Reich.

1954 – The first of two U.S. Air Force contracts totaling $1.9 million was awarded to Avro for further study. Avro chipped in $2.5 million and completed design studies and small-scale tests on a vehicle designated the P.V. 704 (U.S. designation, System 606A). The 606A flying disc design was almost 30 feet in diameter with a maximum weight of 27,000 lbs and a design speed over 1,000 mph.

1958 – The U.S. Army also became interested in the Avro project. The Air Force agreed to redirect its effort as this could demonstrate the design features of the 606A concept in less time at a much lower price. The resulting craft was named Avrocar and given the Army designation VZ-9AV (VZ for vertical take-off reseach aircraft, 9 as it was the ninth in a series and AV for Avro). The Avrocar was a saucer-shaped disk 18 feet in diameter and 3 feet thick. It was designed to go 300 mph and able to fly to an altitude of 10,000 feet. It weighed 5,650 lbs and had separate cockpits for two crewmembers.

1959 – Two flying disc prototypes rolled out of the Avro factory. The first Avrocar was sent to NASA Ames, Moffett Field in California. It flew in 1961 and was used for wind tunnel testing. The second Avrocar prototype was said to be aerodynamically unstable.

1961 – The Avrocar flying disc program was allegedly terminated after a total of $10 million had been spent. The two prototypes were finally put on exhibit in the United States, one at the US Army Transportation Museum and the other at the Smithsonian.

1975 – Stealth aircraft became possible during the 1970s when Lockheed adopted a mathematical model developed by Russian scientist Petr Ufimtsev to predict the radar signature an aircraft made with flat panels, called facets. Engineers at Lockheed found that an airplane with faceted surfaces could have a very low radar signature because the surfaces would radiate almost all of the radar energy away from the receiver.

1980 – From the mid-1980s, triangular-shaped UFOs were observed in the skies. This was the era of US stealth aircraft, with a skin made of highly specialized materials in order to gain and maintain air supremacy.

1993 – The Aurora was the name given to an unmanned US reconnaissance aircraft or drone supposedly developed in secret “black” programs in the 1980s and alleged to be capable of hypersonic flight. The US has carried out numerous drone air raids in recent years. In a briefing note to the British Assistant Chief of the Air Staff (ACAS), Anthony Bagnall, then head of the Ministry of Defence’s UFO desk, wrote that there was evidence of such an unidentified Aurora craft evading UK defenses.

1997 – Declassified documents revealed a USAF forty-foot flying disc designed to fire warheads from 300 miles in space. The American flying saucer was called the Lenticular Reentry Vehicle (LRV). Engineers at North American Aviation in Los Angeles designed it under contract with the United States Air Force. Direction was from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, employing German scientists who had worked on WWII German rocket planes and flying disc technology.

2008 – A Chinese company developed a prototype flying saucer drone that can hover in the air and be controlled remotely from afar, Xinhua news agency said. The aircraft is 1.2 meters (four feet) in diameter and is able to take off and land vertically and hover at an altitude of up to 1,000 meters (yards). It took the Harbin Smart Special Aerocraft Co Ltd 12 years and 28 million yuan (4.1 million dollars) to develop the prototype flying disc, which is designed for aerial photography, geological surveys, and emergency lighting.

 

 

The Unsolved

 

 

unsolved

 

 

The Roswell incident continues to stir up allegations that the US government carried out a cover-up. UFO investigators claimed that a crashed alien spacecraft and bodies were recovered near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.

Lately, the missing Apollo 11 tapes were pointed to as another possible cover-up. When Neil Armstrong first walked on the Moon in July 1969, the camera sent back color video far sharper and more vivid than the blurred pictures shown on TV –– stunning images that “only a handful of people have ever seen.” But decades after the high-resolution NASA videos went into storage, they are nowhere to be found. The Goddard Space Flight Center said it haphazardly lost the original Moon tapes, or destroyed them. (Some hacked Internet videos show an alleged ancient Moon base, supposedly filmed by Armstrong.)

Here are some up to date unsolved incident items:

Feb 28, 2007 – Former Canadian Minister of Defense Paul Hellyer demanded that world governments disclose alien technology that could be used to solve the problem of climate change. “I would like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation… that could be a way to save our planet,” Hellyer told the Ottawa Citizen newspaper.

March 22, 2007France became the first country to open its official files on UFOs. The national space agency unveiled a website documenting more than 1600 sightings spanning five decades.

June 22, 2007 – A mile-wide UFO –– one of the largest ever seen –– was observed by the crew and passengers of an airliner over the Channel Islands between Great Britain and Northern France. An official air-miss report on the incident appeared in Pilot magazine. Aurigny Airlines captain Ray Bowyer, flying close to Alderney spotted the mile-wide object, described as “cigar-shaped.”

Nov 11, 2007 – The pilot of Olympic Airways flight 266 reported a UFO shortly after taking off from Athens en route to London. Staff at Athens airport, the pilots of two other passenger planes, and people at a nearby air force base also saw the flying object. Greek authorities kept the UFO encounter secret for over a year but finally released documents and pilot conversation recordings, generating huge public interest.

Nov 13, 2007 – Former pilots who reported strange phenomena in the sky demanded the US government reopen an investigation into UFOs. They offered accounts of witnessing UFOs, including a transparent flying disc and a triangular craft with mysterious markings. James Penniston, a retired US Air Force pilot described seeing and touching a UFO when he was at a British air base in Woodbridge. The UFO was “warm to the touch and felt like metal,” Penniston said. After 45 minutes the light from the object “began to intensify” and it “shot off at an unbelievable speed” before air force personnel, he said.

Dec 18, 2007 – Japan’s  top government spokesman said he definitely believed unidentified flying objects exist. Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura was speaking to reporters in response to demands lodged by an opposition lawmaker for an inquiry into “frequent reports of UFO sightings.”

March 30, 2008 – Mrs. Izydora from Szczecinek (northern part of Poland) reportedly went with her husband on a trip and observed an outline of a humanoid entity hovering above the ruins of a former military complex. While her husband went toward the local forest, Mrs. Izydora decided to stroll amid ruins of the former military base. After a while she unexpectedly noticed in the mid-air some kind of semi-transparent entity. She said it looked like a “misty figure” of a man hovering several meters above the ground.

May 14, 2008 The British Ministry of Defence opened its files on UFOs. Along with the unsolved cases were odd encounters when jet fighter pilots considered shooting down UFOs. The MoD said its investigation had to do with monitoring UK security and more files were being prepared for release over the next four years.

May 21, 2008 – Omar Ferlatti and Walter Lopez reported encountering a short glowing humanoid figure in a field in San Carlos, Salta, Argentina. The small humanoid figure appeared to be surrounded by a sort of “magnetic field,” which prevented the men from approaching it. The figure was described as having human features, with long arms and long fingers but without fingernails. Around the same time a local sheep herder grazing in the nearby Valles Clachaquies reported being startled by a similar humanoid while guarding the herd.

June 7, 2008 – Three British soldiers said they saw UFOs, which looked like “rotating cubes,” while on night patrol at Tern Hill military barracks near Market Drayton, Shropshire. Corporal Mark Proctor, of the 1st Battalion of the Irish Regiment, recorded the sighting on his mobile phone and reported it to Army officers. Two hours later, helicopter police officers reported an encounter with a huge craft 80 miles away near Cardiff. They claimed to have given chase to the “flying saucer-shaped” object after it almost collided with their aircraft near the Ministry of Defence base of St Athan.

June 29, 2008 – A Royal Navy aircraft engineer claimed to have seen a “glowing” UFO hover over the M5 motorway. It was reported as a circular disc glowing bright, hovering hundreds of meters up. Michael Madden said he watched in disbelief as the disc-shaped object floated above his head before it “zoomed off at incredible speed.” He said the unidentified object flew for up to three minutes above junction 21 of the M5 near Weston-super-Mare of Somerset.

Oct 3, 2008 – Emmy Award-winning producer and author Linda Moulton Howe said that cattle had been seen rising in beams of light into large flying discs. In an interview with Leo Sprinkle, Ph.D., the former professor of psychology at the University of Wyoming reported that Judy Doraty and her teenage daughter, Cindy, watched a calf rise in a beam of light into a flying disc outside Houston, Texas in 1973. In a similar 1980 incident, a mother and her young son in Cimarron, New Mexico reportedly encountered non-human entities and watched a cow rise in an orange light beam.

Oct 24, 2008 – A US military veteran who worked in the helicopter aviation field while in the military reported seeing a huge object about the size of a large shopping mall and parking lot in the early morning hours. Truck driver Tim Comstock was on Route 7 north of the town of Empire, Ohio, when he saw the mile-wide UFO. “I looked up and there was a very bright object just above the tree level. It seemed self-luminescent. It was big. About the size of a large shopping mall and parking lot. It didn’t look like anything mechanical by any means. To me, it looked like a cocoon,” he told reporter Linda Moulton Howe.

Nov 6, 2008 NASA scientists contributed to the spate of UFO videos posted on the Internet. The US space agency were filming from a shuttle outside the Earth’s orbit in April 2008, when the cameras picked up some objects that have never been identified.

Nov 20, 2008 – Russian researcher Vladimir Azhazha said that extraterrestrials are greatly interested in human sperm and ovules. “Mikhail Gorbachev was the first and the last national leader who acknowledged the issue of unidentified flying objects in Russia. We established the public ufological center during his rule under my supervision,” the Russian scientist told reporters. “It is not ruled out that they come from a civilization of parallel worlds, or from the ocean. Modern science knows very little about what’s happening at ocean’s depths,” Azhazha said.

Nov 22, 2008 – The pilot of a British police helicopter carrying two police observers narrowly avoided colliding with a UFO over Birmingham. All three reported seeing a strange aircraft with two continuous blue-green lights. The object was less than 100 meters away and flew around them. The incident was detailed by the Airprox Board, which reports near misses to the military and air traffic control units. Nick Pope, who previously worked for the Ministry of Defence’s UFO desk, said: “A helicopter was nearly blown out of the sky.”

Dec 22, 2008 – Dr. Peter Creola, a retired Swiss chief delegate at the European Space Agency (ESA is the European version of NASA) and head of the Swiss office for space policies, joined the ranks of those who formally request the truth about UFOs. On the topic of disclosing the facts about UFOs, Dr. Creola said: “You cannot unconditionally trust NASA.”

Jan 8, 2009 – An octopus-shaped UFO was reported flying through the air hours before a British wind turbine was destroyed in mysterious circumstances. Dozens of residents claimed to have seen bright flashing spheres is the skies near Louth, Lincolnshire, where a 290 ft turbine was mangled in a mystery collision. One woman said she saw an object fly towards the wind farm, while others described the lights as being linked by tentacles, leading locals to dub it the octopus UFO.

Jan 17, 2009 – A mysterious blue car-shaped UFO was photographed in Darwin, Australia as it flew across a cloudy sky. Amateur photographer Mark Schmutter snapped the shots from the ninth-floor balcony of a friend’s apartment. He said he saw the object move across the sky about the speed of a plane –– then it flew straight upwards before it disappeared into the sky. Mr Schmutter said he had no idea what the object was –– be it a strange, newfangled aircraft or a UFO shaped like a car.

Jan 19, 2009 – A UFO was seen and filmed in China by a squadron of fire fighters in Liu Pan Shui City in the province of Guizhou. One of the fire fighters, Wang Jia Wei, noticed an odd flashing star and got a camera with 700X zoom. The filmed UFO was made of two rotating spinning top-shaped vehicles or halves of a whole craft joined at their bases. Members of the Liu Pan Shiu meteorological bureau were unable to identify the object.

Jan 30, 2009 The Danish Air Force released 329 pages of previously classified archives on UFO sightings, including details on more than 200 unsolved cases. The Air Force said the archives contain details of unexplained events occurring between 1978 and 2002, before the job of chronicling UFO sightings went to a group called Scandinavian UFO Information.

Feb 12, 2009 – NASA Ames Research Center astrobiologist Lynn Rothschild debated the topic of alien life with the Vatican Observatory’s director emeritus George Coyne. The Catholic Church opened to the idea of life on other planets, with the head of the Vatican observatory, José Gabriel Funes, conceding the possibility of extra-terrestrial life.

Feb 21, 2009 The Canadian Government authorized open public access to thousands of federal government documents concerning UFOs. A total of 9500 digitized documents spanning the years 1947 to the early 1980s were made available through the Library and Archives Canada website.

April 20, 2009 – Former Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who made the longest moonwalk in history, said alien life does exist and the US government is blocking the information from getting out. Mitchell addressed the issue of extraterrestrial life at the National Press Club in Washington.

July 19, 2009 – Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the Moon, claimed in a C-SPAN interview that there’s a monolith on one of the moons of Mars. Some observers said that the recent wave of qualified comments and classified files released by various governments are part of a slow and lengthy but well orchestrated UFO disclosure.

July 21, 2009 The Russian Navy declassified its records of UFO encounters, many of which took place in or around water, according to the web site of the English-language Russian news channel Russia Today. “They are most often seen in the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the southern part of the Bermuda Triangle, and also in the Caribbean Sea,” said one intelligence officer. In perhaps the most compelling account, military divers in Siberia’s Lake Baikal, the world’s deepest lake, encountered humanoid creatures dressed in silvery suits at a depth of 160 feet. Three people reportedly died during that naval chase.

August 17, 2009 – A former head of the British armed forces told the defence secretary a UFO claim known as Britain’s Roswell could be a political embarrassment, according to newly released files. In 1985 Lord Hill-Norton wrote to Michael Heseltine about the “Rendlesham incident” in 1980, when US airmen in Suffolk said they saw strange lights. He said an unknown aircraft may have entered and left UK airspace.

At the dawn of our social development, humans believed that the sky or firmament was the abode of spirits. In most traditions, a spirit was a ghost or being without a material body. The sky as seen from Earth was called “the heavens” and was accepted in various doctrines as the dwelling place of God and angels –– as well as the blessed after death. Most religions looked upon the spirit as an intelligent life force or “soul.”

qlifeThe introduction of modern science finally consigned ghosts and spirits to the fantasy zone of delusions and superstitions. In our day, eminent reasoned thinkers are in charge of our scientific and educational systems. But the swift growth of astrobiology in the past few years has presented an exceptional challenge. Several popular theories have been proposed about the possible basis of alien life. The latest phase in the critical analysis of extraterrestrial life now focuses on what physicist and astrobiologist Paul Davies recently described as “Q-life.”

“A century and a half after Charles Darwin published On The Origin of Species, the origin of life itself remains a stubborn mystery, and is deeply problematic. The simplest known living organism is already stupendously complex, and it is inconceivable that such an entity would arise spontaneously by chance self-assembly. Most researchers suppose that life began either with a set of self-replicating, digital-information-carrying molecules much simpler than DNA, or with a self-catalyzing chemical cycle that stored no precise genetic information but was capable of producing additional quantities of the same chemical mixture. Both these approaches focus on the reproduction of material substances, which is only natural because, after all, known life reproduces by copying genetic material. However, the key properties of life — replication with variation, and natural selection — do not logically require material structures themselves to be replicated. It is sufficient that information is replicated. This opens up the possibility that life may have started with some form of quantum replicator: Q-life, if you like.”

Q-life –– set apart as a “life form without material structure” –– ironically harks back to our ancient belief in spirits. According to Professor Davies, the benefit of simply copying information at the quantum level, instead of building rigid duplicate molecular structures, is speed: “Q-life can therefore evolve many orders of magnitude faster than chemical life,” Davies pointed out. The environment of theoretical Q-life is unclear, but the surfaces of interstellar grains or the interiors of comets could allow “low-temperature environments with rich physical and chemical potential.”

The possibility of a quantum replicator became evident in 2007, when an international panel from the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Max Planck Institute of Germany, and the University of Sydney found that under certain conditions galactic dust “comes alive” in outer space. The panel’s chief researcher, V.N. Tsytovich, announced that microscopic corkscrew shapes (helixes and double helixes) could form “spontaneously” in interstellar space. As they have memory and the power to reproduce, the helical strands show the necessary properties to meet the criteria for life. Since that affirmative disclosure, NASA scientists have given weight to a search for what they now call “weird life” –– organisms that lack DNA or other molecules found in life on Earth.

Quantum mechanics predicts that a proton can probably tunnel through the potential barrier separating quantum states of a DNA base pair, thus producing genetic mutations. “Mutations are the driver of evolution,” Davies wrote. “So in this limited sense, quantum mechanics is certainly a contributory factor to evolutionary change.” But how did Q-life evolve into familiar organic life? A possible scenario proposed by Davies is that common bio-molecules were derived by Q-life as a dynamic back-up information storage process.

“A good analogy is a computer. The processor is incredibly small and fast, but delicate: switch off the computer and the data are lost. Hence computers use hard disks to back up and store the digital information. Hard disks are relatively enormous and extremely slow, but they are robust and reliable, and they retain their information under a wide range of environmental insults. Organic life could have started as the slow-but-reliable ‘hard-disk’ of Q-life. Because of its greater versatility and toughness, it was eventually able to literally ‘take on a life of its own’, disconnect from its Q-life progenitor and spread to less-specialized and restrictive environments — such as Earth.”  (Paul Davies, “The quantum life,” physicsworld.com – July 1, 2009.)

Cambridge astronomers Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe first took up the question of quantum life in the 1970s, when they said that self-organizing plasma in interstellar space could have the form of a panspermia life cloud. In 2008, Arvydas Tamulis of Vilnius University described a comparable kind of Q-life progenitor as a molecular quantum computer able to absorb energy from stars, perform digital functions, and travel through interstellar space by means of radiation pressure. A quantum computer cloud in space would use photoactive molecules to convert light energy to floating point operations at extremely low temperatures.

Since a Q-life cloud meets the key criteria for life, but does not require any material substance, it bizarrely suits the limit for an intelligent spirit. The paradigm of a sentient computer cloud also helped to add some details to current reasoning that plasma has willpower –– and water has memory. Emergence theory describes the way complex systems and patterns crop up from simple interactions. For example, the self-organization of plasma (an ionized gas) leads to the formation of membranes, which eventually partition a cell’s genetic material.

Duke University engineer Adrian Bejan and Penn State biologist James Marden recently put forward the idea that “complexity is a function of flow.” Bejan’s 1996 constructal law is based on the principle that flow systems evolve to balance and minimize friction or other forms of resistance so that the least amount of useful energy is lost. The efficiency of a flow system increases as its branching design components become more complex. Since matter is not required for Q-life, it involves only the flow of information. Hence the “will” of a quantum plasma cloud perhaps is merely to fluctuate –– and flow into more complex patterns with a tendency to become smart. This is also called the physics of evolution.

In 1988, French scientist Jacques Benveniste published a controversial paper in Nature, which indicated that water has “memory” –– and is forever trying to get back to where it was. Some researchers now conjecture that water is capable of containing a memory of particle configurations within its molecular structure, which could also trigger access to electromagnetic signaling.

qlife2It was recently discovered that plants, animals, and even isolated microbes converse or “talk” to each other with molecular signals (external hormones) called pheromones. Today, we know there are alarm pheromones, food trail pheromones, sex pheromones, and many others that affect life through a sort of sixth sense (most likely related to smell and taste). Assortments of plants emit distress pheromones when grazed upon. Ants mark their trail with pheromones. And a number of organisms use pheromones to attract their mates from a distance of two or more miles.

It is now understood that water is an ideal pheromone-signaling pathway. The surface tension of liquids could retain the pH memory of a pheromone source –– allowing water to store up information (aggregation pheromone concentrations) rather like a hard disk. Pheromones have been shown to act as single molecules or as a mix of chemicals that evolved into an extraordinary system of micro communication. Results of up to date research into water’s memory of structural correlations have allegedly verified that “water even remembers whether it has been recently hot or cold.”

A potential environment for theoretical Q-life was plausibly foretold in 2005, when Professor Stephen Hawking worked on the “information paradox” and announced that information was not lost in black holes. Scientists had previously imagined that nothing could ever escape from a black hole. But it was determined that event horizon quantum fluctuations could allow information to seep out from a black hole. Hawking said that information configured below the atom in size could flow through black holes without wiping out structural complexity –– and be retrieved in parallel universes.

A new discipline called evolutionary developmental biology, or colloquially, evo-devo, was granted its own division in major universities. Leading scientists, from geneticists to paleontologists, published reports and attended symposiums that presented Q-life as a black-hole-analogous reproductive system. The New Yorker magazine covered topical findings in biology and wrote, “Some of the biggest have come from the new science of evo devo.”

A few of the strange and wonderful areas now under discussion are black hole intelligence mergers, intrauniversal intelligences, and new universe creation. Today, the most powerful Q-life computer cloud in space is thought to be the event horizon of an intelligent black hole.

It appears that even the Vatican is paying attention to the new sphere of evolutionary developmental biology. Given that it embodies the event horizon or “Omega Point” (singularity) of an intelligent black hole, sentient Q-life in the universe probably exists beyond our customary sense of space and time. It outwardly emerges from an untold multiverse, and most likely cannot be created or destroyed. On the face of it, Q-life is equivalent to eternal life. For this reason, the transcendent locale of Q-life is amazingly similar to the miraculous realm of God and angels. Pope Benedict XVI recently made a reference to the late French Jesuit scientist and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, who offered an evolutionary theology claiming that all creation is developing towards the Omega Point, which he identified with Christ as the Logos of God. Attesting to a renovation of the world as foretold by St. Paul, Pope Benedict said, “It’s the great vision that later Teilhard de Chardin also had: At the end we will have a true cosmic liturgy, where the cosmos becomes a living host.”

In 2007, Ruth Gledhill of the London Times interviewed Britain’s foremost atheist, the evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. When asked about the possibility of design by a cosmic intelligence, Dawkins replied: “But that gigantic intelligence itself would need an explanation. It’s not enough to call it God, it would need some sort of explanation such as evolution.”

facesThe odd notion that skeptics might one day demand an explanation from an intelligent Q-life replicator seems brashly outrageous to many of us. Helical strands of “weird life” take shape spontaneously in interstellar space –– apparently not by evolution or a gradual development from earlier forms. Even so, hulking cynics scoff at a cosmic intelligence by writing it off as the “Flying Spaghetti Monster.”

Since religion’s true mission is to encourage friendship with God, perhaps members of the clergy need to consider the link between perception and the geometry of Q-life –– and to explore its impact on human behavior and emotions. Recent studies at Florida State University and the University of Vienna confirmed that people see human facial features in the front end of automobiles, and ascribe various personality traits to their cars. “One-third of the subjects associated a human or animal face with at least 90 percent of the cars.” If humans can interpret inanimate structures in biological terms even if presented in abstract ways, how would they interpret Q-life?  For emotional bonding to come about, a Q-life progenitor must not be imagined as an inanimate object or “thing,” but as a highly evolved living being –– with as much intelligence as necessary to initiate new universe creation.

In 1964 the Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev proposed a system to determine the measure of an alien civilization. The most advanced civilization is a Type III or IV civilization that would harness the power of an entire galaxy and tap into the energy produced from a super massive black hole. A Q-life progenitor sending out information at the event horizon of a black hole to merge from a singularity is the best runner for a Type III or IV civilization. Such hypothetical life clouds –– bearing information without material structures –– are so highly developed that in all probability they are immortal.

Gerard ‘t Hooft and Leonard Susskind recently proposed the holographic principle, which suggests the universe is akin to a giant hologram. David Bohm, Karl Pribram, and Michael Talbot talk about the “whole in every part” nature of a hologram as a new way of understanding reality. Every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole. If a hologram of an object is cut in half and illuminated by a laser, each half will still contain the entire image of the object. Consequently, information around an event horizon could be pictured as a “Master Hologram” that imparts its thermodynamic symmetries of order and entropy (or archetypal law and revolt). All self-gravitating systems in the universe would be holographic reflections of that Master Hologram. Each and every system would duplicate an allocation scheme according to a “best fit” principle that minimizes wasted resource space while reproducing the positive and negative correlations of the Master Hologram.

In other words, “familiar objects and chronological events” on Earth could be the mirror images of a Master Hologram, modified to simulate our terrestrial best fit. (So too, would every effect in all self-gravitating systems.) Thus, the thermodynamic distortion of  “world wars” on Earth could find its cosmic parallel as an equivalent rebellious struggle on other life-sustaining planets. In a planetary system without organic structures, the Master Hologram’s best fit could adjust the thermodynamic distortion to appear as a massive red spot of gas –– for example. If the cosmic holographic principle proves to be technically valid, alien civilizations could be holographic resemblances of the Master Hologram – and of us.

Microbiologists recently found that friendly bacteria account for about 90% of the cells in the human body. Some could even be cases of “weird life.” What happens to our friendly microbes when we die? While the body itself might be clinically dead, up to 90% of its cells could continue to live and connect to convection fields or subterranean water basins. Are we holographic copies of Q-life clouds?

Perhaps the most incredible space photos ever put on view are enfolded in a great mystery known as “pareidolia.” A category of optical illusions, pareidolia is an uncertain impression perceived as something clear and distinct. The astronomer Carl Sagan thought that seeing faces in clouds is an evolutionary trait. “Confirmation bias” refers to the tendency to notice what confirms one’s beliefs, and to ignore what disagrees with them.

horsehead1Some psychologists promote pareidolia under clinical conditions to evaluate their patients. The most well known example is the Rorschach inkblot test. The Baltimore Sun in recent times reported: “Pareidolia is common enough, and predates the space program by a millennium or two. We’ve all seen the Man in the Moon, or faces and images of ships and elephants in cloud formations.”

In 1978, some 8,000 people made pilgrimages to the home of a New Mexico woman who discovered a picture of Jesus in a burned tortilla. And in 2001, thousands saw the face of Satan captured in a CNN video and Associated Press photos of smoke billowing from the World Trade Center. (Mike Himowitz, “Space photo contents often are all in eye of the beholder,” Baltimore Sun, Feb 12, 2004.)

Space photos pose a fuzzy hurdle for scientists now programming computers to observe images and to recognize objects. If a computer were taught to make out the symbolic abstractions of modern art, how would it perceive the contents of deep space photos? Some might argue that teaching machines to see “arty abstractions” is simply a waste of time. Yet we surely expect our GPS-fitted cars of the future to identify ordinary road sign symbols, which are likewise graphic abstractions.

In his book, “How We Believe,” publisher of Skeptic magazine, Michael Shermer said that our brains are belief engines or evolved pattern-recognition machines that connect the dots and create meaning out of the patterns that we think we see in nature. According to Shermer, we are the descendants of those most successful at finding patterns. This process is called association learning, and is basic to all animal behavior.

Why do people see faces in nature, interpret window stains as human figures, hear voices in random sounds generated by electronic devices or find conspiracies in the daily news? A proximate cause is the priming effect, in which our brain and senses are prepared to interpret stimuli according to an expected model. UFOlogists see a face on Mars. Religionists see the Virgin Mary on the side of a building. Paranormalists hear dead people speaking to them through a radio receiver. Conspiracy theorists think 9/11 was an inside job by the Bush administration. Is there a deeper ultimate cause for why people believe such weird things? There is. I call it “patternicity,” or the tendency to find meaningful patterns in meaningless noise. (Michael Shermer, “Patternicity: Finding Meaningful Patterns in Meaningless Noise,” Scientific American, Nov 25, 2008.)

I first explored the conceptual problem of space photos when I staged an art gallery exhibition during the 1980s, near the Polytechnic University of Athens, Greece. Various journalists and local television personalities turned up to scrutinize my close-up prints of the “map of the universe.”

The foremost panoramic optical view of the entire sky was made during the middle of the 20th century under the direction of astronomer Knut Lundmark at the Lund Observatory in Sweden (the first Hasselblad camera in space was Swedish made). To construct the image, draftsmen used a mathematical distortion (Aitoff projection) to map the sky with the plane of the Milky Way along the center and the north galactic pole at the top.

In this way, the oval map is really an optical illusion. What appear to be the distant left and right wings of a flattened plane are part of the same curved space that wraps around us and joins up behind our star system. Accordingly, we are actually located in the center of the curved sky map, although we get the flat impression of being outside of it.

The Milky Way clouds, or the collective glow of stars in the densely populated galactic plane, are accurately drafted and mixed with dark dust lanes. 7,000 individual stars are shown as white dots indicating brightness. The end product is photographic in quality and represents the entire observable sky. The map took two years to complete and is usually referred to as the Lund Panorama of the visible universe.

Alexis Kostalas, one of Greece’s best-known performing arts journalists and the official presenter of the 2004 Olympic Games of Athens, was one of several visitors who came to my exhibition to investigate the bizarre power of pareidolia. At first, I considered the space photo stuff to be little more than a speculative task of finding patterns. But since then, remarkable discoveries in biology forced me to enlarge my way of thinking about what the space pictures might possibly disclose.

Astronomers today believe they have come up with solid proof for the existence of a super massive black hole at the center of our galaxy –– right behind the bull’s eye or event horizon of our sky map. The accelerating growth of science and new tools of atomic research like the Large Hadron Collider are expected to rapidly produce a technological singularity. Evolutionary developmental (evo-devo) biologists think the best computer is a black hole system and information can be sent into a new universe from an intelligent black hole attractor.

A few years ago, most scientists imagined that nothing could ever escape from a black hole –– not even light. It was understood that a black hole would destroy information about the original quantum state of anything falling into it. Only a mixed disturbance of stray Hawking radiation or irrelevant noise could be emitted as faded energy from a black hole.

But in 1997, theoretical physicist John Preskill bet Stephen Hawking that information was not lost in black holes. Hawking wrote an article in 2005 and announced that quantum perturbations of the event horizon could indeed let information escape from a black hole. Stephen Hawking lost the wager but shed light on the information paradox. He said that we must look at the multiverse as a whole since information going into black holes is saved in parallel universes.

The best opinion among physicists today is that information is preserved and that Hawking radiation is not precisely thermal but receives quantum corrections. In simple terms, this implies that a strong chemical synapse (intelligence-transmitting impulse) of complex organic molecules would most certainly be crushed out of reality by the physically powerful gravitational forces of a black hole. But a weaker electrical synapse of elementary particles below the atom in size could conceivably endure a passive black hole merger without wiping out structural complexities. For this reason, evo-devo biologists think the ultimate universal computer is a black hole attractor.

If a developmental singularity is the ideal computing platform for a universal intelligence merger, how many universal civilizations might be involved in such a merger? The Drake Equation estimates 10,000 communicative civilizations in our Milky Way galaxy alone. Today there has also been an explosion of renewed interest in astrobiology over the search for “extreme forms of life” on Earth and for similar life in deep space.

attractor

An international panel from the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Max Planck institute in Germany and the University of Sydney found that galactic dust could form spontaneously into helixes and double helixes and that the inorganic creations had memory and the power to reproduce themselves.

A similar rethinking of prospective alien life is being undertaken by the National Research Council, an advisory body to the US government. It says NASA should start a search for what it describes as “weird life” –– organisms that lack DNA or other molecules found in life on Earth. (Robert Booth, “Dust ‘comes alive’ in space,” Sunday Times, August 12, 2007.)

I was initially amused to find that nearly all of the visitors attracted to my small exhibit expressed sight of an allegorical humanoid shape pinpointed on the map of the visible universe. Their metaphors ranged from Godhead, Jesus, and Buddha –– to a snowman, Bigfoot, and King Kong. But the pareidolia was the same: a cloudy pyramidal bulb at the center of the sky map looked a bit humanoid to most people.

I understand you’ve been running from the man
That goes by the name of the Sandman
He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye
Of a hurricane that’s abandoned
(America – “Sandman,” 1972)

Yet today pareidolia is our least direct concern. Far more important is the possibility that the cloudy bulb on our sky map might be composed of helical plasma structures like those found in DNA. Far more significant is the prospect that an attractor near our galactic event horizon represents an intelligent black hole or developmental singularity with memory and the power to reproduce itself. Today the pareidolia aspect is only an “optional extra” to boost your interest. What you see is what you get.

Today we know that electromagnetic forces in space can hold together helical strands of galactic dust that may contain genetic codes comparable to the DNA information of organic matter. According to V.N. Tsytovich’s international panel, these interstellar microscopic corkscrew shapes exhibit the necessary properties to meet the criteria for life. For this reason, our picture puzzle goes beyond ordinary patternicity. It also crosses the threshold of synchronicity. Finding meaningful patterns in noise is not necessarily the same as believing what we see.

Yet a further coincidence is that our sky map pareidolia bears a resemblance to religious hallucinations and ecstatic visions known all through the ages. Remote viewing refers to information gathered about isolated targets using extra-sensory perception. Without a doubt, our all-encompassing panoramic map is an exemplar of the rotundum, a mental image of the self or world soul that emerges subconsciously with the thought of a circle or a sphere.

For the ancients, the kingdom of heaven was really the same as the visible sky. The word firmament is translated from the Hebrew “raqiya,” which meant the vault or dome of the expanding sky. The supreme deity was depicted as sitting on a throne in the firmament, reminiscent of an abstract radiant fetus in its protective bubble. Yet the ancients made it abundantly clear that what looked like a man in the sky with a crown of stars was merely humanoid pareidolia.

The full-grown being they spoke of escalated far beyond the measure of man to a cosmic degree of light years –– “he stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in.” The flying throne chariot was described as a formation of wheels within wheels in the script of Ezekiel. A group of poets throughout the biblical era reiterated visions of a great white throne in the sky. In the West the chariot is the basis of Merkebah mysticism. In the East it’s the Car of the Norm.

Endurance is the armor of the Norm,
And to attain the Peace that car rolls on.
‘Tis built by self, by one’s own self becometh ––
This chariot, incomparable, supreme:
Seated therin the sages leave the world,
And verily they win the victory.
(The Pali Canon)

Pondering whirlwinds and cosmic fires, Cambridge astronomer Fred Hoyle boldly proposed that self-organizing plasma could take the form of a molecular quantum computing cloud. Hoyle was responsible for the term “big bang,” although he did not believe the big bang theory. His study of panspermia with Chandra Wickramasinghe showed that a sentient “life cloud” might be able to absorb magnetic and light energy from stars and planets, process information, and move in space by using radiation pressure. Hoyle was knighted in 1972 for his theories about the origin of chemical elements in stars. Arvidas Tamulis described a similar kind of life cloud as a quantum computer that uses photoactive molecules converting light energy to magnetic flops at extremely low temperatures in interstellar dust clouds.

Molecular computing clouds are generally pictured as cold black “blobs, slithering things, unimaginable things.” Previous suggestions that huge quantum clouds may have “symmetrical limbs” provoked criticisms or claims of the supernatural. But there are some logical pointers to consider. In 2009, researcher Ronen Alon of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel discovered that white blood cells move like millipedes, creating many tiny “legs” that adhere to the lining of blood vessel walls. When scientists looked closely at these limb-like protrusions, using an electron microscope, they saw that the minute legs rapidly attach and detach themselves, allowing the cells to quickly crawl to their destination.

Marine biologist Mikhail Matz from the University of Texas at Austin monitored the Bahamas seabed in 2008. His team discovered that a single-celled organism the size of a grape (Gromia sphaerica) crawls and propels itself with temporary protrusions called “pseudopods.” Similar protrusions could perhaps produce supracellular structures containing tunnelling nanotubules, according to recent theories of DNA computing. Former astronaut and physicist Ulrich Walter thinks evolved space-faring creatures would require the same stereoscopic vision and the same hand-eye coordination as humans. Anthony Bragalia says they could be self-engineered, with humanoid limb structures to ambulate within their environment.

A curious detail about our sky map pareidolia is that none of the ancient truth-seekers with testimonies of the throne chariot were ever able to actually get a good look at the occupant. Deep clouds surrounded him (or “something like” a sea of glass mingled with fire). They could, however, remotely view his right arm amid bursts of lightning. Thus, the right arm implied protection. The Torah was supposedly prewritten on it.

Perhaps this “heavenly handedness” was a subconscious idiom of homochirality. It’s a logical sign that life in deep space will exhibit a particular handedness. Louis Pasteur discovered the homochirality of organic material in 1848. The molecules that make proteins and DNA all have either a left-handed or right-handed orientation. According to William Sparks of the Space Telescope Science Institute, life may be detectable by examining optical properties to identify regions of space where homochirality exists.

Several visitors that called on my exhibit noticed another outstanding example of pareidolia. For over half of the viewers, a forward region of our sky map seemed to resemble a bird’s outstretched wing. A longing for air flight and the subliminal lure of plumes and feathers is intriguingly marked in the human genome –– from indigenous tribal myths to Stravinsky’s “Firebird.” As luck would have it, winged creatures (called cherubim and seraphim in the Scriptures) were colorfully portrayed with the throne chariot. They’re personifications of the clouds that transport it.

Additional creatures resembling a lion and a calf as well as a number of elders were said to dwell in the winged cherubim throne. Strangely enough, on the opposite side of our sky map, a sprawling dark mass of cubist-like pareidolia emulates the wretched look of a black sheep’s head, lying dead on its side. The book of Revelation described a lamb as it had been slain in the midst of the throne.

Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best
(Norman Greenbaum – “Spirit in the Sky,” 1969)

Were ancient thinkers capable of observing abstract landscape features from our map of the cosmos? Or equally, why should our map display pareidolia of bygone archetypes? Since it’s highly unlikely (but not impossible) that ancient geeks possessed sophisticated technologies and the rules of Aitoff projections to sketch out an exact chart, we might accept as an alternative that it could all be due to something hardwired in our genes. In spite of everything, our panoramic map is certainly the mother of all inkblot tests. If we fix our eyes on it long enough, we may well see everything that exists.

Several theories in quantum physics suggest the cosmos may be a discerning entity or a living universe –– one single whole with consciousness. Physicist Gerald Schroeder explained that our human brains might act like data lines picking up information from a collective mind external to the body, and adding individual experiences back into the collective memory. This was allegedly supported by experiments conducted by the David Lynch Foundation where a statistical crime level was reduced for a short time in the locality of a large collective focus.

Complexity theorist James Gardner argued in his book “Biocosm” that the purpose of cosmic evolution is the propagation of baby universes exhibiting the same life-friendly physical qualities as their parent-universe. Theoretical physicist Lee Smolin introduced the idea that every time a black hole collapses into a singularity and a new baby universe is formed with a new space-time, the laws of physics that are born with it are slightly different. John Gibbon reported that baby universes could be different from their parents. Some may lose the ability to grow much larger than the Planck length, and will fade back into the quantum realm. But some may have a little more inflation still than their parents, growing even larger, producing more black holes and giving birth to more baby universes in their turn.

Professor Rudy Rucker, a colleague of Stephen Wolfram (“A New Kind of Science”) recently wondered if a world in which everything is said to be alive could hatch a new pantheistic doctrine. He referred to the notion that every physical entity is alive (hylozoism) and the philosophical dogma that everything is conscious (psychism). But our sky map touches deeper than the reach of pantheism. Instead, it implies that primary consciousness could be present in a privileged position –– not everywhere. An attractor interface or fixed point of intelligent interaction between mass and energy might be located near the event horizon of our galactic black hole. Maybe the energy of a developmental singularity outflows nearby, from a higher multiverse of many dimensions, to engage in natural selection and to initiate new universe creation.

The attractor is perhaps similar to Teilhard de Chardin’s idea of a colossal biological noosphere. Soviet geochemist Vladimir Vernadsky first popularized the noosphere as a metabolic process, or a mega-organism on a vast scale. Chicago Tribune reporter Guy Murchie said that one huge mind or “thinking layer” surrounding our world corresponds to the noosphere. But even if there’s a self-similar manifold, with innumerable attractors for every known galaxy, the information that brought our universe into existence is not confined in time like we are, or the way the universe is. The multiverse singularity is transcending, and can’t be reduced to pantheistic logic.

According to evo-devo biology, natural selection ceases to be the driving force of evolution after a particular point, and self-design takes over. The multiverse could correspond to a big bounce, merging two universal phases of expansion (big bang) and contraction (big crunch). Since the differentiation between past and future is meaningless, the multiverse could be gauged either as a forever-looping oscillation (cyclical), or an endless array of parallel universes (Witten’s M-theory).

Each phase is driven by natural selection. But after billions of years of relentless evolution and the chronological struggle of blood, sweat, and tears, a logical focus at length is able to engineer and load the initial conditions for its “opposite” phase. In that phase, initial conditions all at once emerge fine-tuned for a life-sustaining genesis not because of a weird or spectacular accident, but because a self-designing developmental platform reverse-assembled them via the universal transcension of an intelligent attractor (computing black hole).

Stephen Hawking thrashed out “The History of the Universe Backwards” with coworker Thomas Hertog in 2007. He said the best way to understand how the universe arose was with a “top-down approach” –– to look at our current cosmic conditions, then work back through the sum of all histories to figure out which theory best fits those conditions. Physicist Paul Davies took a similar view when he argued in his book “Cosmic Jackpot” that the cosmos made itself the way it is, “stretching backward in time to the very beginning,” to focus in on bio-friendliness. Physicist Ronald Mallett at the University of Connecticut said a circulating beam of light might reverse space-time symmetries.

Given that matter comes with equal parts of antimatter, maybe each big bounce cycle of the multiverse carries opposite charge, spin, and handedness. However, to maintain thermodynamic constancy, the contrasting phases could also give rise to some distantly masculine and feminine differences. For example, if our subconscious worldview now slants toward the male or Animus (in “him” we live and move and have our being) our archetypal calling to eventually unite with the “other side” is personified as the Anima “bride” –– a beautiful maternal habitat like a celestial city adorned for her husband.

The steady-state multiverse or “self-made universe” has neither beginning nor end in time. It can be described using the equations of physics and does not hinge on any inexpressible or external forces past the big bounce. Still, the attractor’s potential to amaze and inspire refuses to go away. According to stem-cell guru Robert Lanza, life creates the cosmos. We can understand reality better by accepting space and time as biological forms of perception rather than as external objects.

The final universal computronium must populate more than a standard memory chip. If every part of a holographic cosmos includes all the information held by the whole, an intelligence merger could also coincide with a Golgotha Event, reduced to chaos by the manifestation of a negative trade off. In the East, “annihilation of the self” is the way to eternity. Perhaps a black hole merger calls for a self-sacrificial unselfish gene.

Widespread anxieties that the Mayan calendar should end in 2012 also underscore the fact that medieval minds “merged a singularity” with the ghost of Golgotha. The BC / AD calendar system marks the life of Jesus as the “dividing point of time” and world history.

Some believe that an untimely earthquake that stretched to the Sea of Marmara caused a fissure in the rock of Golgotha when Jesus died. Also packed together in close proximity to Golgotha’s dim thunderstorm zone are the Thera crater (the most titanic volcano in the hemisphere) and the Dead Sea shores (the lowest point on the surface of Earth on dry land).

In “The Collapsing Universe,” Isaac Asimov said a mysterious blast estimated at 15 megatons that flattened a Siberian forest in 1908 might actually have been a small black hole. Russian scientist Yuri Labvin suggested that an alien intelligence wanting to save the Earth was behind the Tunguska blast that downed 80 million trees over nearly 100 square miles.

The Shroud of Turin is considered by many to be a photo of God. It reveals a negative contact print image of a crucified man’s body on a long piece of cloth. Shroud devotees believe it was the cloth used to bury the historic Jesus.

Radio carbon dating conducted in 1988 on threads of the shroud dated the cloth to several centuries after the death of Jesus. But in a documentary video, Ray Rogers, the chemist who led that project, afterward said those threads proved to be part of a burn repair made to the cloth in the 16th century. The Vatican recently reported that the Knights Templar kept the shroud a secret for over 100 years after the Crusades.

Maybe the most perfect coincidence of all is that the map of the universe has a similar structure as the field of human perception. In mental space, the rotundum (round element) corresponds to the self, the regulating center of the psyche and catalyst of individuation. It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with it.

Scientists today are trying to figure out perception as it applies to design. According to Richard Strand, our “cognitive image” consists of an oval perceptual field that focuses on a focal area in its central foreground. Biologist Rupert Sheldrake suggested that our familiar life forms might owe their structure and development to “morphogenetic fields” which form a kind of cosmic template.

In his book, “The Production of Space,” philosopher Henri Lefebvre linked together mental space (the space of the philosophers) and real space (the physical and social spheres in which we live). The actuality of space gives rise to a perceptual field in which we have the experience of art. But peculiarly, like the sky map, our perceptual field is also an optical illusion. Due to our binocular vision, separate parallax images arise in each eye to become a single image (stereopsis) by the mental process of fusion. Hearing is also stereophonic (binaural) because we have two ears.

For example, if we stare at the tip of our nose, we get the symmetric sense of a gold spoon-shaped design where the left and right images overlap. What we actually see is the external membrane of the olfactory bulb (fleshy wall of the nostrils). But the circular onion-shaped illusion is in fact the earliest thing our eyes observed after birth.

senses6Like an inner apparition, the pyramidal bulb structure continues to guide us all through our lives. Even if we overlook it, subconsciously it stands for the rotunda, an image of our own self or true face. Infants discover the perceptual field as a central steering mechanism and a zone of contact. With this cosmic template, the mind retains a model of its environment. In effect, the kingdom is within us. It’s not just a psychic illusion, but also a bridge of matter and consciousness within a privileged position.

Scientists were recently surprised to find that our mental template of perception bears a strong resemblance to fractal geometry, or the bulb building process of the Mandelbrot Set. In 1999, Jeremy Avnet and Jennifer Carter gave a lecture entitled “Chaos and Neurodynamics” at the University of California, Santa Cruz. They studied EEG attractor formations in the olfactory bulb and processes controlling the oscillations between the inhalation attractor and exhalation attractor. They found that the exhalation process acts as a sort of reset button, causing all attractors throughout the olfactory bulb to vanish. Along with odors, molecular signals called “pheromones” are also detected in the olfactory bulb.

Located just behind the nostrils in the nose’s dividing septum are two tiny pits referred to as the vomeronasal organ (VNO), the seat of the sixth sense. Named for the vomer bone, where the septum meets the top of the mouth, the VNO contains nerve cells that sense chemicals called pheromones, secreted by many animals, including humans.

The University of Chicago established proof of human pheromones in 1998. They transmit fear, stimulate courtship behavior, and give rise to the language of love. Our ancestors in all likelihood communicated by a sixth sense, using semiochemical signals.

Were you at the day of rotunda?
Were you with the sons of thunder?
— were you?

The vestibular system is a paired set of tiny sensory organs tucked deep into the temporal bone on either side of the head, right near the cochlea of the inner ear. It gives us our natural sense of balance. In 1991, Martin Lenhardt of the University of Virginia discovered that people could also sense ultrasound, using the vestibular system as a hearing organ.

In the East, the mental template is often described as a third eye or golden flower. The Bible hints at a sealed forehead and “apple of the eye” (Deuteronomy 32:10, Psalm 17:8 refers to the “small man” or pupil of the eye). The rotunda bulb may look like an apple or guava fruit to make us wise, but eating it certainly isn’t beneficial to the human species.

A Taoist meditation called “The Secret of the Golden Flower” tells how the mental bulb ultimately unfolds its sentient petals when consciousness finally occupies “the square inch field inside the square foot house.” According to Newsweek, almost two thirds of Americans say they pray, and many now study “The Cloud of Unknowing,” as well as the writings of the contemplatives Saint John of the Cross and Saint Teresa of Avila.

In the East, the mental template’s nickname is the little vehicle or individual self, formed in the image of the cosmos or larger vehicle of the world soul. The individual self is “atman,” a humanoid idea tiny as a thumb but identical to God in essence. In the West, the “demiurge” originated with Plato and was identified as nous (mind). Another title for the demiurge, “Saklas,” is Aramaic for fool or trickster. Given that the individual self is a likeness of the cosmic whole, it can also become antagonistic to the will of universal intelligence. Pushed by faulty craving, rather than bonding with the world soul, Saklas mischievously proclaims himself as God, though even he desires a good outcome.

Do what you want, but think about the Omen
A vision in your mind will lead your way.
Go where you want, but don’t forget the Omen
A light at your side will show you where.
(Magic Affair – “Omen,” 1994)

In 2009, researchers at UCLA used high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to scan the brains of people who meditate and found that meditation increases the brain’s size. Meditators showed significantly larger volumes of the hippocampus and areas within the orbito-frontal cortex, the thalamus and the inferior temporal gyrus — all regions known for regulating emotions. The researchers said they found significantly larger cerebral measurements in meditators compared with controls.

If mind and universe share the same cosmic template and both use developmental attractors to store and send information, how might intelligent black hole mergers come about? Only 10% of our DNA is used for building proteins. The rest is regarded as junk DNA. Russian researchers recently got together linguists and geneticists in an experiment to investigate junk DNA. According to their findings, DNA also serves as data storage and communication.

Russian biophysicist Pjotr Garjajev and his colleagues found that alkalines of DNA seemingly follow a regular grammar and have set rules just like other languages. They reported that DNA could cause a disturbing pattern in a vacuum that churns out magnetized wormholes (or tunneling nanotubules). Wormholes are the microscopic equivalents of Einstein-Rosen bridges near black holes. They connect different areas of space-time through which information can instantly be transmitted.

Physicists David Hochberg and Thomas Kephart have shown how gravity was strong enough in the very early universe to have provided the energy required to spontaneously create massive numbers of self-stabilizing wormholes. A significant portion of these wormholes is likely to still be around and may be pervasive, providing a vast network of corridors that reach far and wide throughout the universe. It might be easier to discover and use these natural wormholes than to create new ones. (Foreword to James Gardner’s “The Intelligent Universe” by Ray Kurzweil.)

Referring to dark matter and dark energy, theoretical physicist Michio Kaku recently said schoolbooks should no longer teach that our universe is made mostly of atoms. In 2009, physicists Donald Coyne and D. C. Cheng showed that mini black holes could be everywhere, and “all particles might be made of various forms of black holes.” As black holes lose energy, they slowly evaporate, shrinking in size down to the quantum scale where they may be identical to elementary particles. If everything is in fact made of mini black holes, the basis of biological death could be more directly linked to intelligent black hole mergers, and a Golgotha Event could express those final conditions.

Mama put my guns in the ground
I can’t shoot them anymore
That cold black cloud is comin’ down
Feels like I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door
(Bob Dylan – “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” 1973)

Is mind a singularity? For some observers it looks and feels like it. Danny Penman reported that a group of British researchers are now challenging the establishment by launching a major scientific study into near-death experiences. Most survivors say they experienced the rotundum as a circulating tunnel of light.

One study published in the prestigious Lancet medical journal found that one in ten cardiac arrest survivors experienced emotions, visions or lucid thoughts while they were clinically dead. In medical terms they were “flatliners” or unconscious with no signs of brain activity, pulse or breathing. About one in four people who have a near-death experience also have a much more profound – and sometimes disturbing – experience such as watching doctors try and resuscitate their bodies.

Jewish historian Gershom Scholem said the Merkebah mystics practiced a breathing meditation to “descend” to the chariot. The mental template was a backdrop on which they focused their vision. The ganzfeld perceptual field is a state of mild sensory deprivation that purportedly sets off extra-sensory perception and remote viewing. A recent survey by the Pew Forum found 68 percent of Americans say they believe that angels and demons are active in this world.

People in at least three countries, including the United States, believe dreams contain important hidden truths, said researcher Carey Morewedge, an assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. In six different studies, Morewedge and his colleagues surveyed nearly 1,100 people about their dreams. Across all three cultures, an overwhelming majority of the people endorsed the theory that dreams reveal hidden truths about themselves and the world, a belief also endorsed by a nationally representative sample of Americans, Morewedge said. (“Most People Believe Dreams Are Meaningful,” LiveScience, Feb 17, 2009.)

Rotunda visions have shaped certain forms of art and architecture. The Dome of the Rock, the Taj Mahal, the Kremlin, and the US Capitol are all geodesic structures called “onion domes.” A well-known rotunda edifice in the past was the Byzantine martyrium for saintly relics. The “tryblion” was a saucer or plate used as a measure or seal of weight and volume (kaarah in the Hebrew Old Testament) rooted in the Passover Seder Plate. The followers of a type of mysticism centered in Palestine inscribed prayers and rotunda diagrams on their tryblion saucers to give spiritual protection (Chretien speaks of “un graal,” or platter).  Lately, visionary artist Ingo Swann integrated the crystal image of a pyramidal bulb in his painting, “Feminine Rising.” Coached by Salvador Dali, telepathist Uri Geller flaunted surreal mental spaces on pottery plates.

Brother you don’t need to turn me away
I was waiting down at the ancient gate
(Fleet Foxes – “Mykonos,” 2008)

Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid” is a Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Douglas Hofstadter, an academic whose research focuses on consciousness, thought, and imagination. Using examples of Escher’s optical illusions, a planescrutiny of Godel’s incompleteness theorem, and reflections on Bach’s compositions along with Zen koans, Hofstadter explained how physical systems (reminiscent of art) acquire meaning despite being made of meaningless elements.

In his book “The Black Swan,” Nassim Nicholas Taleb interpreted a symbol for something that could not exist. The expression “black swan” refers to a prevailing, unforeseen, and uncommon occurrence beyond the sphere of normal probabilities. Taleb said that all important scientific discoveries, historical events, and artistic achievements are black swans — uncontrolled and unpredicted.

James Lovelock’s “Gaia hypothesis” proposed that the biosphere acts as a superorganism. But we shouldn’t be fooled into thinking so-called superorganisms studied today embody a higher intelligence. In fact, they’re sub-human. Honeybee communities may produce self-organization, but they don’t have the complexity required to build pyramids or skyscrapers. The underlying truth today is that scientists lack the will to respond to a black hole attractor or higher universal intelligence.

Craig Hogan of Fermilab, said we could be living in a giant cosmic hologram as an extension of our understanding of black holes. If information from a higher intelligence were projected out of a black hole, it would show up near the event horizon in a clutter of Hawking radiation. But quantum perturbations would allow at least some conspicuous meaning to arise from the clutter. Could intellectual abstraction be a key attractor to extraterrestrial contact?

face1Today, information and media literacy (IML) is important. Christie’s and Sotheby’s fetch high prices. TV stations and film studios prove art’s economic value. Nobel laureates praise art’s highest merits and say that abstraction is a key to cultural sophistication. Yet, why do our scientists guess that a higher extraterrestrial intelligence would not use visual abstraction, but send us a humdrum math signal instead?

The Inspector General of global officialdom looked at a foreboding silhouette of a male torso with a droll cap, flipping an obscene gesture with his finger. A frustrated bird struggled to free a hatchling with its wing, caught in the man’s smiling clenched teeth. “Decadent art,” the official voiced censure and guarded his dictatorship.

Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling
merciless the magistrate turns round, frowning
and who’s the fool who wears the crown
go down in your own way
(Pink Floyd – “Fearless,” 1971)

Inventor Ray Kurzweil said there could be a leap in intelligence that yields immortal life. But if humans may soon become immortal, why do scientists tell us not to believe in gods? According to the Apocalypse, God will be revealed in clouds. Every eye shall see him — and as they say in Sweden: “What may be glimpsed can also be photographed.”

When it was originally published in 1902, The Varieties of Religious Experience by William James established the first psychological analysis of religion. It paved the way for the clinical and paranormal branches of psychology created by Freud and Jung.

William James’s book remains the best introduction to his pragmatic way of thinking, his almost devotional respect for discoveries of the human mind, and his unique claims upon the significance of personal experience. James’s classic study is of fundamental importance not only to the awareness of religions, but to modern psychology and psychiatric medicine. Underscored with personal accounts of belief and possession, intoxication, and near-death experience, James’s theories of conversion, saintliness, ecstasy, and mysticism continue to raise new questions and stir up fresh debates.

But some extreme adjustments have been made to the realm of science since then. It nowadays looks as if a groundless (and maybe financial) fear of touching the electrified “third rail” of intellectual disapproval prevents many researchers from speaking out about the varieties of unworldly experience. Just one year after William James published his psychological analysis, Orville and Wilbur Wright launched their famous first aircraft flight. Our contemporary space epoch finally got underway. Today, perhaps space exploration also influences the scientific viewpoint of the paranormal. For regardless of how skeptical we may be of the unknown, there is really nothing very “normal” to be said about walking on the Moon or encountering distant worlds. New technological miracles surprisingly awaken old insights of traditional beliefs. As a result, some of the greatest efforts of modern skeptics to block the bonding of unconscious archetypes are merely wasted labors in our current point in time.

It is often impatiently said that the scientific analysis of unidentified phenomena is a measureless tangle of confusion. Yet, in point of fact, most paranormal experiences belong to around only five chief categories or varieties. This small number of varieties may be interrelated. Hypothetically, they could all be scientifically explainable if irrefutable evidence for the underlying nature of God is precisely established.

Life-Sustaining Cosmos


Perhaps mankind’s most archaic belief is the idea that the original basis of life dwells in deep space (as opposed to a crystal in a cave, for example). Although countless deities and household idols have played a part in many mythologies of the world, it was almost universally acknowledged by ancient cultures that the supreme creative being and eternal spirit of life was a celestial Godhead or immortal sky-parent who resided in the lofty heavens above stormy mountains and forged a long history of cosmological creeds.

Today, some biologists think the need for God may be a central feature stamped deep into our genome. According to the book, “The God Gene: How Faith Is Hardwired into Our Genes,” by Dean Hamer, chief of gene structure at the National Cancer Institute, human spirituality may be an adaptive trait, located in one of the genes that also happens to code for production of the neurotransmitters that regulate our moods.

As fate would have it, an unexpected approach is now emerging in the native ranks of evolutionary biology with a brand-new “panspermia theory” in opposition to Charles Darwin’s original “warm pond” explanation. Today, we know that organic compounds are very common extraterrestrially. Because life appeared on Earth shortly after the planet had cooled down, with actually very little time for prebiotic evolution, the most current evidence suggests that life was transported from deep space to the Earth — by the impacts of comet-type bodies.

panspermiaInstead of Darwin’s little pond, astrobiologists today picture a huge impact crater carved into a seafloor basin where a life-bearing comet once collided with our planet. Here is the starting point of all life on Earth — an all-encompassing seed (panspermia) for the original roots of terrestrial life. Although not exactly a common phenomenon, there’s nothing magical about such a hypothesis. It simply implies that complex organic molecules were outgassing from a volcanic seafloor fissure made by a prehistoric comet collision. That’s probably how life originally appeared on Earth, according to recent facts. And because humans are life forms, we can physically relate to our extraterrestrial seedling  — possibly even on a genetic level.

Francis Crick shared the 1962 Nobel Prize with James Watson for their discovery of the molecular structure of DNA. Crick in addition made public a theory with biochemist Leslie Orgel that complex genetic codes could be spread by intelligent life forms using space travel technology in a process they called “directed panspermia.”

The first panspermia theory was mentioned in the writings of the Greek philosopher Anaxagoras in the 5th century BC. Various scientists including Lord Kelvin and Svante Arrhenius revitalized it in modern times. In the 1970s, Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe proposed that life arrived on Earth by being showered as living cells from comet-type bodies. Recently, a whole range of radiation-resistant microbes has been recognized and has forced us to expand our notion of what is biologically possible in deep space. The latest discoveries strengthen the astrophysical panspermia hypothesis and strongly suggest that life is a cosmic phenomenon. Supporters of the “Electric Universe” theory argue that the plasma astrophysics of Hannes Alfven best explain the synaptic interface of life by the interaction of electromagnetism on cosmic plasma.

etmoonIn a 2007 report for “Scientific American,” theoretical physicist Paul Davies reflected on the possibility of extraterrestrial life. He cited a conference in 1995 when renowned Belgian biochemist Christian de Duve called life a cosmic rule and declared it almost definite to be found on any Earth-like planets. De Duve’s announcement underpinned the conviction of many scientists that the universe is teeming with life. Dubbed “biological determinism” by Robert Shapiro of New York University, this theory is sometimes put across as: “Life is written into the laws of nature.” The panspermia theory is also mapped out as “Cosmic Ancestry,” a development of Fred Hoyle’s original concept by Brig Klyce and James Lovelock. Supporters of Cosmic Ancestry maintain that — like mass and energy — life has no primary origin. It is written so profoundly into the laws of nature that the blueprint for life in the universe cannot be created or destroyed. It can only be altered from one form to another.

The cosmic storage of life’s genetic material is analogous to a self-repairing heat and mass transfer assembly. The large-scale motion of microscopic ice grains in deep space and their irradiation by ultraviolet light energetically recycles life’s synthesis by way of numerous microbial “splash-back” transmigration routes plotted by the shock waves of comet-type collisions.

Cosmic Ancestry indicates that together with the “conservation of mass and energy,” studies should also consider the “conservation of synthesis.” It’s a simple transfer rule that merely says: As the mass of a relativistic system decreases, its energy will increase, and vice versa. Its value must always be greater than zero, for without at least some conservation of synthesis, an interchange of mass and energy would not be possible.

An ideal state for the conservation of synthesis can be pictured as an equal mixture of mass and energy intertwined like an oscillating filament in a vacuum, which is a rather handy description of the quantum world. The most efficient synthesis found in nature is of course “biosynthesis,” or the metabolism of life. If a superior intelligence or God is indeed behind the laws of physics, perhaps the trinity of “Mass, Energy, and Life” are three aspects of only one thing — the fluctuation of a void:

  • Father – Singularity of Infinite Mass
  • Holy Spirit – Quantum of Absolute Energy
  • Son – Synthesis of Intelligent Life

According to the former head of the Human Genome Project, Francis Collins, perhaps at times God does intervene in quantum mechanical uncertainty to nudge nature’s designs, because the chaotic unpredictability of complex systems impacts our future. “It is thus perfectly possible that God might influence the creation in subtle ways that are unrecognizable to scientific observation. In this way, modern science opens the door to divine action without the need for law-breaking miracles,” Collins recently said.

But if the mind of God or some type of higher consciousness is hardwired into the stuff of space-time, how did it get there? Is there a commonsense reason why the initial conditions of the big bang were fine-tuned, spot on, for a life-sustaining cosmos — or is consciousness just a weird and spectacular accident? What caused the big bang in the first place, and where did the matter that became the universe come from?

If the universe started from the singularity of a big bang and subsequently expanded, it seems likewise possible that it might also do the opposite and contract to a big crunch. There is a logical symmetry to such an effect. If the universe were fated for a big crunch, it would either contract to a singularity (a point of infinite density and zero volume) and everything would cease to exist; or otherwise, it might bounce back with a great outburst. This “big bounce” would be very similar to or perhaps exactly the same as the big bang before it. The theoretical multiverse is said to be the collection of multiple possible universes that together consist of all of reality. As luck would have it, William James first coined the particular term “multiverse” in 1895. The various universes within the multiverse are usually called parallel universes.

 

 

Today, a mixed bag of multiverse theories is taken into account. Astrophysicist Thomas Gold once proposed the reality of “other universes nesting within our observable space.” For physicist Michio Kaku, loop quantum gravity of the multiverse may be linked to the upcoming science of teleportation. The ekpyrotic model by Paul Steinhardt and Neil Turok is a forerunner of the widely held cyclic models in which the universe goes through infinite, self-sustaining big bounce cycles, with an eternity of alternating big bang and big crunch mirror-image phases repeating forever.

multiverse2Theorist Peter Lynds recently proposed a model (“On a Finite Universe with no Beginning or End“) in which time is cyclic, and the universe repeats an infinite number of times. However, because it is exactly the same cycle that repeats, it can also be interpreted as taking place just once. The result is a two-phase multiverse loop that has no beginning and no end, but is finite and circumvents singularities. Problems such as monopoles, matter-antimatter imbalances, and why initial conditions at the big bang appear to be so specific require no additional solutions.

A key feature of Lynds’ model is his reasoning of thermodynamic time reversal. Rather than the second law of thermodynamics being violated and entropy decreasing, the order of events suddenly turns around in Lynds’ cyclic universe so the singularity is avoided and entropy can continue to increase.

Stephen Hawking once thought that if the universe began to contract, the whole thermodynamic arrow of time must reverse with it. “Everything would go into the reverse of the way we experience things today: light would travel back to the stars, and broken eggs on the floor would miraculously put themselves back together again.”

Physicist Ronald Mallett presently leads a controversial time travel research study. But the second law of thermodynamics shows that processes involving heat transfer tend to have one direction and to be irreversible. This law also predicts that the entropy or measure of disorder of an isolated system increases with time.

Lynds claimed: “If all of the laws of physics, with the exception of the second law of thermodynamics, are time symmetric and can equally be reversed, it became apparent that if faced with a situation where entropy might be forced to decrease rather than increase, rather than actually doing so, the order of events should simply reverse, so that the order in which they took place would still be in the direction in which entropy was increasing. The second law would continue to hold, events would remain continuous, and no other law of physics would be contravened.”

No conservation laws would be breached in this cyclic model because it’s only the order of events that gets turned around. We can go to a Saturday cinema matinee and watch a movie shown in reverse with all of its actors walking the wrong way around. But that won’t strangely turn the clock back to Friday. In a related way, Peter Lynds thinks that reversing the order of events near a singularity in respect to entropy does not necessarily mean that the thermodynamic arrow must also reverse. However, it does provide a very good scientific justification for the big bounce.

The distinction between past and future may be irrelevant near a singularity. Yet all time symmetric physical processes apart from the second law of thermodynamics could be reversed to take place in the direction in which entropy is still increasing. In this direction no singularity would be encountered. Events would simply recoil into their equivalent reverse alignments and carry on from where the singularity would have been if the order of events had not turned around.

According to Lynds, it becomes obvious that the big bounce would not only lead events back to the big bang, but it would actually cause it. The universe would then expand, cool, and sooner or later our solar system would take shape again: “If one asks the question, what caused the big bang? The answer here is the big crunch. This is strange enough. But is the big crunch in the past or the future of the big bang? It could equally be said to be either. Likewise, is the big bang in the past or future of the big crunch? Again, it could equally be said to be either. The differentiation between past and future becomes completely meaningless. Moreover, one is now faced with a universe that has neither a beginning nor end in time, but yet is also finite and needs no beginning.”

God from Machine Era


cardoorHow can the mind of God fit into the cyclic universe? As computers get smarter, machines could become more intelligent than humans within a few decades, leading to a technological singularity. Many scientists take it on faith that machines will sooner or later become conscious. Perhaps the simplest way to achieve this would be to fit existing life forms (such as neurons or microbes) into biocomputer chips. In 1993, the scientist who coined the phrase “technological singularity,” Vernor Vinge, said: “Within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended.”

The Acceleration Studies Foundation (ASF) is a group of technologists and futurists that explore the accelerating development of special domains in science and venture to weigh up the anticipated technological singularity. The president of the ASF, John Smart, maintains archives on the singularity hypothesis. His latest thoughts relate to information and computation studies and evolutionary developmental (evo-devo) biology.

Smart and others like him suppose the technological singularity could max out as a “black hole analogous computing system.” According to theoretical physicist Lee Smolin, such a structure is likely to be an integral component in the replicative life cycle of our “evo devo” universe within the multiverse.

In the ancient recitals of Greek tragedy, a projecting crane arm was used to lower actors playing gods onto the stage. The Latin phrase “deus ex machina” came from Horace’s advice to dramatists never to draw on a god from the machine to explain their story line. Even so, evolutionary developmental scientists at present hope that two separate processes of Cartesian dualism — mind and matter — can work together inside the technological singularity to create a universe. They suggest that the initial conditions of the big bang are the result of an evolutionary selection process involving universe adaptation in the multiverse and universe reproduction via “intelligent black holes.”

Smart and his contemporaries currently propose that “Earth’s local intelligence is on the way to forming a black-hole-analogous reproductive system, and then seed (germline) formation to produce another universe within the multiverse.”

Roger Penrose confirmed with Stephen Hawking that a singularity must result inside a black hole. Gravity becomes infinitely strong at its center, causing the geometry of space-time to infinitely curve to a point of zero volume. Physicist John Wheeler, who coined the terms “black hole” and “wormhole,” thought a big crunch to be the possible ultimate fate of the universe. It’s not difficult to see the likeness between a black hole and a big crunch. However, there is a distinction between the two. (A black hole has the entire universe outside it. With a big crunch there is nothing outside the collapsing area because it represents the whole universe.)

Modern physicists and information theorists hope that a unified “information physics” will soon become known, allowing them to understand our universe as a quantum computing system. Several theorists support the cyclic multiverse model because “development in biology can also be thought of as a cyclical process, a movement from seed, to adapting organism in the environment, to a new seed.”

Theoretical physicist Freeman Dyson, recently said we can see that “mind” (which we may call an informational process) has an ever more pervasive impact on “matter” (local physical processes) as a function of its complexity. “Over time, complex systems become guiders and shapers of at least their local universal dynamics,” Smart suggested.

According to molecular biologist Sean Carroll, evolutionary developmental biology seeks to resolve differences between processes spanning the scales of cells, organisms and ecologies. It shows potential to deliver a meta-Darwinian paradigm in biology. And evo devo’s hottest theory is that intelligence may transfer learned information into a new universe by means of a black hole.

John Smart wrote: “A black hole is the last place you want to be if you are still trying to create (evolve) in the universe, but this seems exactly where you want to be if you have reached the asymptote of complexity development in ‘outer space,’ have employed all finite local resources into the most efficient nonrelativistic computronium you can, and are now finding the observable universe to be an increasingly ergodic (repetitive, uncreative, ‘cosmogonic’) and senescent or saturated learning environment, relative to you. In other words, the more computationally closed local computing and discovery become, the faster you want the external universe to go to gain the last bits of useful information in the shortest amount of local time, before entering an entirely new zone of creativity (black hole intelligence merger, natural selection and new universe creation).”

Yet, finding the old universe uncreative and no longer useful from one point of view could bear an awful resemblance to an unspeakable Golgotha Event: “As the external universe dies at an accelerating pace, you are locally learning every last thing you can about it as it disintegrates in virtually no subjective time.”

There’s more than one way to scientifically scrutinize such an event. On one hand, a minuscule black hole normally created in space could undergo a near-collision with an intelligent life form and siphon off some of its genetic data. Or, on the other hand, a microscopic black hole produced in an experimental reactor could similarly be directed to smash into organic life. Both paradigms may be connected through some kind of information entanglement or what Einstein called “spooky action at a distance.” In one description, the person receiving the action might be lifted up on crossed planks like a human lightning rod to draw a miniature black hole from the pitch-black sky. In another version, a subject might be pinned down like a living target assembly in a high-energy physics laboratory to absorb man-made black hole disintegration. Even if our Golgotha Event illustrations seem exceptionally miserable, an intelligent living target could breathe information into a microscopic black hole to lay down the initial conditions for the universe’s reverse cycle — and thus ensure that it sets off a life-sustaining cosmos.

What could be more all-powerful than creating a universe with pure consciousness? Singularity theorists call it “universal transcension” and consider black holes to be vast genetic intelligence transmission systems. A black hole could in theory pick up intelligence or biological consciousness without wiping out structural complexities. Stephen Hawking speculated it could do this if advanced intelligence is built out of some type of organization below the atom in size. (There are 25 orders of magnitude between atoms and the Planck length for the possible requirements of intelligent systems.)

John Smart confirmed: “Not only do intelligent black holes appear to be ideal pre-seeds, picking up and packaging the ‘last useful body information’ in the universe before they leave, but they may also be ideal vessels for merging, competing, cooperating, and engaging in natural selection with other intrauniversal intelligences. This is because black holes, and only black holes, allow a special kind of ‘one way time travel’ for merging with other evolutionarily unique universal intelligences in virtually no subjective (internal) time.”

Holographic Multiverse


Physicist Alain Aspect showed that under certain circumstances subatomic particles are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them — even if they are billions of miles apart. The holographic principle by Gerard ‘t Hooft and Leonard Susskind suggests the universe is akin to a giant hologram. David Bohm, Karl Pribram, and Michael Talbot presented the “whole in every part” nature of a hologram as a new way of knowing the universe. Every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole. If a hologram of an object is cut in half and illuminated by a laser, each half will still contain the entire image of the object. At some deeper level of reality, perhaps the Golgotha Event is not an individual accident, but the extension and fractal of an underlying built-in cosmic unity.

During the Middle Ages, belief in cyclic time was routinely outlawed by the Church. Yet the Bible actually spelled out a two-phase universe: The big bang was in Genesis, with the customary account of creation. The big crunch was described in Revelation. After squeezing through the gap of a bottomless pit, “a new heaven and a new Earth” finally came forward, without a sea. Perhaps the image of a deep well was the dying hint of an impact crater that opened in a seafloor when a life-bearing comet fell to our planet. The visionary Pierre Teilhard de Chardin encouraged meditation for the development of a close, interpersonal relationship with universal transcension — in order to believably know “what it feels like” to experience and cross the singularity of a multiverse.

Magnetic “Woo” and James Randi

Magnetic “Woo” and James Randi

Peter Fotis Kapnistos

 

 

darwin

“The Amazing Randi” recently poked me for a million-dollar award he has promised to anyone with proof of paranormal powers (shrugged off as “woo” by skeptics). Numerous theorists describe the collective subconscious, a sense of the greater good, or the trust of instinct as what mainly determines humankind´s evolving nature.


 

 

A tall man wearing an officer´s uniform courteously entered the ship´s dining room. He introduced himself as an admiral of the Dutch navy and said he was an emissary for a top-secret committee of the United Nations. “We need you to decipher something for us,” he cautiously requested.

“What is it?” the Oxford cryptologist inquisitively asked.

“A blank page,” the admiral softly replied.

“But I´ll need a symbol,” the professor objected. “At least a line, or a few dots, something…”

Nightfall touched the horizon after a day´s journey. A group of persons trekked along a tapered footpath into untried woodland.

“Why must we meet here?” the weary professor asked.

“A blank page,” replied a Canadian voyager clutching his field glasses.

They sat by a campfire and continued their discussion. “I was a firmware engineer for a global digital provider,” the clean shaved Canadian said. “During maintenance I found a blank web page that was receiving a huge amount of daily visits.”

“Did you check the IP addresses of the visitors?” The professor inquired.

“At first it seemed to be another dirty bunch sharing raunchy erotica,” the engineer carefully watched the footpath trail as he spoke. “They used an odd astronomy recipe, like Morse code. If a recurrent IP failed to visit the blank page or made more than one visit per day, a communication port would robotically open. I think that may have allowed them to exchange sex-torture subject matter.”

The sound of a crowd drawing near invaded the evening stillness. The Chinese negotiator and an Italian envoy remained standing at a tent porch as the familiar admiral paced into the campsite without airs, wearing grubby khakis and a snug jacket. “We need to know what´s behind the CIA tortures,” the admiral tersely beckoned the professor.

Thus began the unlikely mission of the Oxford cryptologist and an undisclosed group of United Nations representatives from assorted homelands such as Spain, France, Germany, Denmark, Turkey, Japan, and Russia –– to name only a few. At long last it was discovered that the CIA had made use of “psychics” during the 1970s. But due to the affluent demands of lobbyists, some influential “skeptics” were eventually substituted instead, partly because they supposedly knew more about how to tackle and resolve religious overloads. Opportune cynics scorned straight morals. They effortlessly became the foremost producers of explicit representations of sexual activity. Paradoxically, the leading consumers of pornography according to later press reports were excessive religious traditionalists. The ominous partnership of supply and demand traded immense stockpiles of capital. Members of an intelligence sector of the US government were charged with sex abuse and torture in interrogations. Behind closed doors, the CIA destroyed nearly 100 graphic videos of such interrogations.

Margie Schoedinger was a young woman from Houston, Texas who made a complaint in 2002 that she had been repeatedly drugged and raped by clandestine US government agents that wore face covers. They purportedly exposed her to indignity and trauma. But due to the “far-fetched atmosphere” of her allegations, the local authorities presumed that Margie Schoedinger was in all probability psychologically disturbed.

Two years later, horrible Abu Ghraib prison photos were seen around the world. Images of US government agents wearing face covers while fiendishly afflicting prisoners looked just like Margie Schoedinger´s original descriptions. Evidently, she had counseled us wisely. But by then, Margie had passed away from a gunshot wound in an apparent suicide.

A medical helicopter waited above the isolated encampment to airlift a photographer who had suffered a head injury. The Oxford professor examined some photos an Australian supervisor had given him. A Brazilian mediator watched on. They were demonstrations of water boarding. “Notice anything absent?” The Australian abruptly asked and paused for a long moment. “There are no boards in these photographs,” the Brazilian finally pointed out.

boards

“They didn´t let slip ––on how they joined together two wooden boards,” the professor remarked. “One of the earliest reported victims died of asphyxiation and had water and blood flow out of his lung when his side was pierced.”

A new boss looked out of a window over Washington D.C. An advice-giver selected a list of files and speculated: “Freeze the Sandstone Foundation´s assets? Probably more witnesses might be made known with new disclosures of entrenched elements.”

At length, the rundown Abu Ghraib prison would finally serve as a museum. Near the secluded entry of a dim corridor flickered a single candle on a small plaque that said: “Memorial of Margie Schoedinger.”

 


But she would not think of battle that reduces men to animals,
So easy to begin and yet impossible to end.
For she the mother of our men did counsel me so wisely then
I feared to walk alone again and asked if she would stay.
(Uriah Heep, “Lady in Black,” 1971)


 

James Randi recently posted an article on his “Swift Blog” with the title, “A Champion Grubby Speaks Out” (April 22, 2009). In that article, Mr. Randi automatically criticized me for a story I had published on the Internet about “Uri Geller and the YouTube Video Smear.”

I must admit that Randi did pay me a Freudian accolade by calling me a champion of sorts. The slang word “grubby” is regularly used to describe dirty work clothes. Perhaps James Randi instinctively compared me to a blue-collar protagonist (unless he meant Myxocephalus aenaeus, a fish that looks like a red bass).

As soon as you’re born they make you feel small,
By giving you no time instead of it all,
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all,
A working class hero is something to be.
(John Lennon, “Working Class Hero,” 1970)

 

 

For readers who don´t know who James Randi is, the Amazing Randi (an 80-year-old native Canadian who merrily sports a Charles Darwin style beard) is a stage magician and professional skeptic best known as a challenger of paranormal claims. One of his much-loved objects to complain about is Uri Geller, an Israeli-British performer who claims to be able to bend spoons with the psychic power of his mind.

James Randi began his blitz of opposition with: “I hardly know where to start…” And that´s a good sign for working class enthusiasts. From the onset, the challenger is confused, bewildered and disoriented. He hardly knows. Randi claimed that “a neodymium magnet contained in a plugged-on thumb tip” can move the needle of a compass at an outlying distance. Randi even said he would demonstrate how it´s done. Indeed, if I had further evidence of such a gadget, I would certainly have mentioned it in my original article. I have nothing to lose by exposing swindlers. I only said that the video Randi refers to is not sufficient evidence to prove that Uri Geller cheated. The swollen thumb visual impression in the YouTube video that many observers have commented on was due to blurred motion-capture and appeared on both of Uri´s thumbs (something Randi didn´t seem to get but nonetheless badgered me for).

In one part of the video clip, Uri Geller rubbed his left thumb. Randi and his followers claim that´s where Geller plugged in a magnetic thumb tip. But if you watch the video again you will notice that Geller actually made three attempts to move the compass needle. It slightly moved during the first two tries, but moved more after he rubbed his thumb and asked everyone in the audience to join hands. So, how did the compass needle shift in the first shots if Uri was not allegedly wearing a thumb tip yet? Of course we can speculate all we want. Perhaps Uri Geller rubbed his thumb for a perfectly innocuous reason –– because it just so happened to itch. Or, as Uri´s fans might claim, because students of acupressure regularly massage their finger tips to remove blockages from their meridians and to increase the circulation of Qi (bioforce) through their hands. Of course, with the first mention of “Qi” James Randi and his loyal cohorts will cry, “woo” aloud, and call it a “scientific howler” because in their opinion, bioforce simply doesn´t exist. It´s too bad for them, however, that the Japanese Ministry of Health regulates a thumb technique developed by Tokujiro Namikoshi as a licensed bioforce medical therapy. For centuries now, watchmakers have reported cases where common people halted timepieces only by touching them.

Perhaps Randi made the supreme sacrifice of wrongness when he insisted, “There is no such thing as a human magnetic field,” and called me an idiot and an ignorant reporter for mentioning it. Regrettably, the so-called leader of an “educational club” is apparently still bootstrapped to the world of 19th century mechanics. There is definitely such a thing as the human magnetic field. Researchers began to systematically measure the magnetic fields produced by the human body in the 1970s, after the first accurate measurement was made in 1963 (see: Baule G.M, McFee R. “Detection of the magnetic field of the heart,” American Heart Journal, 1963). Today, international conferences in magnetobiology are held every two years with hundreds of important scientists attending. Most conferences focus on MEG (magnetoencephalogram), or the measurement of the magnetic field of the brain.

We shouldn´t be too harsh on James Randi for lagging behind with his bio-magnetic reviews. Although he claims to lead an informative institute, we shouldn´t forget that the Amazing Randi is perhaps the top professional conjurer of our times. Having started off as a carnival and nightclub magical performer, Randi soon managed to sway entire departments of the US government (via the MacArthur Fellowship) and leading scientists to stop funding research in pioneering fields. America has now fallen behind China in the scientific study of psi phenomena. What more could be said of a head teacher misguidedly claiming knowledge? In a squabble, James Randi suggested that I go back to being a “fashion photographer.” If the popular demand grows, perhaps I will release some never-before published photos of famous personalities. But I certainly won´t return Randi´s boorishness. Asking James Randi to revisit his old playing field of debased nightclubs and saw dust restaurants would be too unkind.

Peter Fotis Kapnistos worked with Professor Spyridon Marinatos, the archaeologist who excavated the ruins of Akrotiri on the island of Thera (Santorini). Peter was the assistant of Spiros Tsavdaroglou, an official photographer for the National Archaeological Museum of Greece. They photographed Minoan and Mycenaean sites and artifacts for Professor Marinatos, who was one of the premier Greek archaeologists of the 20th century (his name is mentioned in the video game Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis). Peter also assisted the team that photographed the royal tomb of Philip II of Macedon, father of Alexander the Great, discovered in the 1980s by the archeologist Manolis Andronicus. If you happen to come across encyclopedias or history books with monochrome pictures of small trinkets from the Tomb at Vergina depicting the father of Alexander the Great, you can be sure those photos came out of Peter´s darkroom work.

It would be thoughtless of anyone to deny that James Randi has done a good turn to modern society by exposing the trickery of some religious pretenders who have robbed the wealth and dignity of many believers. But Randi is neither a scientist nor an educator. He and his committed followers make the mistake of assuming that if there´s a reported phenomenon that can´t be reproduced or explained, it must be a clever trick.

For example, if one of Randi´s young fans were to dive into a tank filled with freezing water at a temperature below zero Celsius, they would suffer cardiac arrest almost immediately according to modern scientific literature. That´s a medical fact. Thus, anyone able to do this without injury, according to Randi´s pointed logic, must somehow be cheating. But Lewis Gordon Pugh, a British lawyer, would strongly disagree. Pugh is perhaps the only man in the world that can increase his core body temperature at will, only by thinking about it. Scientists are now trying to explain how it´s achievable and are absolutely astounded that Lewis Pugh “the ice-man” doesn´t even shiver (an involuntary reflex for mortal humans) while swimming almost naked at the North Pole.

Shrewdly enough, James Randi completely avoided talking about Pugh in his criticism of my original article. Randi has promised to give a million dollars to anyone who can prove paranormal powers. Lewis Pugh says that he can alter his body temperature simply by “visualization.” Ironically, one of Randi´s supporters (who doesn´t even believe in psi) sent me a frenzied message in a befuddled attempt to redefine the dictionary meaning of psi. Others thought they could at last solve the enigma by declaring that William Tell never existed.

But what exasperated James Randi the most was none of the above. He wound up when I wrote that someone using the name “Randi Schimnosky” was posting on the Internet message boards concerning atheism, kinky sex, and child abuse and making at least some people wonder if it had anything to do with James Randi. This is absolutely true. I made up not an iota of what I reported. Instead of thanking me for tipping him off that a potential cyber teaser might be pestering his prestige, James Randi intimidated me. (I assure you I´m not Randi Schimnosky.)

The weird Schimnosky character emerged through a Canadian Internet service provider and could prompt attention for building fake profiles because Randi Schimnosky sometimes poses as a man and sometimes as a woman. Nevertheless, James Randi apparently believes I should be hauled over the coals for mentioning it. The Amazing Randi agitatedly recalled a time when he had the gratification of “flooring a nasty chap” and intimidated me on his Swift Blog:

“One shot, to the chops. He went down, and was carried out. VERY satisfying, I assure you. Want some, Mr. Kapnistos? I got some…”

How am I supposed to answer that menacing question? Of course, I don´t think an elderly man might be waiting to mete out a serious head injury to me the minute I walk out of a restaurant or movie theater. But I´m not sure about his messy group of tough followers. “Rule No. 5” of the James Randi Forum website states: “You will not post anything that demonstrates a clear and present danger to the welfare of another person, or otherwise tends to create alarm or apprehension that the welfare of any person is in imminent jeopardy.” James Randi did not obey his website rules but instead threatened physical harm. Being a resident of the European Union, I sought qualified opinions. I watched the marvels of an English lawyer that just might make James Randi and his group of heavies “shudder.” His name is Lewis Gordon Pugh.

I looked to Lewis Pugh´s paradigm because it coincidentally asked for “two birds with one stone.” Lewis Pugh could lift a (cool) million from James Randi for his evidence of the power of the mind. I could take a shot to the chops and turn the other cheek to prove that those who show off violence are not leaders in education, but dishonor the MacArthur Fellowship. Fist bullying is an endorsement to harm.

Harassment by computer is a crime in several U.S. states –– especially if the communication threatens bodily harm. In “Destructive Crowds: New Threats to Online Reputation and Privacy,” Danielle Keats Citron from the University of Maryland School of Law says that online attackers can release the sense of a mob thrashing. Persons who are driven by fear sometimes find short-term relief by expressing their rage. Statements of annoyance and dislike that swamp some web forums might sway a number of confused school bags, but they can´t stand up in a court of law or influence a genuine educational organization. Scientific advances come about by exploring the unknown. Those who fear and spurn the unfamiliar can hardly contribute new research.

Since Lewis Pugh says that his one-in-a-billion talent to withstand sub-zero contact is mostly because of mind over matter, James Randi and his team could possibly attempt to debunk him. Like the fire walking “stunt,” (which Randi says is due to wood ash under the feet that has very low specific heat and is similar to a heat shield ceramic), Pugh´s paranormal defiance to freezing could be imagined as a clever stunt by some professional skeptics. For example, they could say that something in Pugh´s swimsuit produces heat from the combustion of metallic elements, to warm the water around him.

If that doesn´t work, Randi´s team might assail the scientists who bear witness to the newly discovered phenomenon of “anticipatory thermogenesis.” As Randi did to the Stanford Institute researchers who investigated the Geller Effect in the 1970s, the skeptics could accuse Lewis Pugh´s researchers of a controlled deception to promote the awareness of climate change and global warming, which he represents in the media. The various wires and monitoring devices strapped to Pugh´s body could be alleged to function somewhat like a neodymium heat apparatus, warming up the icy waves as he swims.

In contrast, scrupulous researchers seeking to scientifically confirm Lewis Pugh´s resistance to freezing are studying molecular groups that rotate within vacuum cavities in such a way that thermalization occurs. The possible existence of long-lived rotational states of some molecules inside protein structures (the electromagnetic partitioning of DNA) could be responsible for increasing core body temperature. Pugh´s paranormal ability may in truth be a variant of the Geller Effect, because excitable tissues are now regarded as true generators of thermalization and magnetic fields.

Despite the top-notch skeptics´ best efforts, today many common people are happy to accept the possibility of magnetic “woo.” But faith certainly includes an undeniable “weirdness.” For example, a portrayal of Jesus as a merchant selling jewelry and promoting cosmetics certainly seems pretty weird: “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.” (Revelation 3:18). Even more weird is the ceremonial buzz that he´s forecast to arrive with space clouds and a completely different name: “And I will write upon him my new name.” (Revelation 3).

Is the magnetic attraction of “woo” a strange spot in the pursuit of happiness? Or could the extraordinary sense of a greater good actually determine life´s evolving nature?

I’ve paid my dues –
Time after time –
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime –
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face –
But I’ve come through
(Queen, “We Are The Champions,” 1977)
