NoR: The Nature of Reality

NoR: The Nature of Reality | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

Quantum physics can show that the apparent 'materiality' of the world is no more 'real' than a dream-image; that ‘consciousness’ is a vital element in understanding the true nature of reality.

 

The world that seems so solid and separate from you has been shown by quantum physics to be a trick of the senses.

 

A number of eminent physics professors have stated quite clearly that ‘matter’, ‘energy’ and ‘consciousness’ are the same thing.

 

Understanding the true nature of reality will completely change your view of who you think you are and what life really is.

 

Reality is far stranger than you can imagine.

 

Available as a paperback from Amazon and other online bookstores and as an e-book for Kindle, iPad, Nook, Kobo and most other tablets.

REALITY IS MANUFACTURED FOR THE MASSES

"Cover stories are built and sold to the masses. A secret faith is kept. There are so many false fronts in so many areas of life that, woven together, they form an overall picture of reality. When people buy this picture, the price they pay is very steep. They sacrifice their capacity to invent their own futures. They lose touch with their own imaginations."

 

A really interesting article by Jon Rappoport that starts with a reference to reporters who are not allowed to report on real stories that would challenge the mainstream worldview.

 

However, he continues, "This is a metaphor for what happens to many, many people in their lives. They suddenly sniff the air of real freedom and discovery. They climb out of the morass called consensus reality, and know why they are alive. And then they think, “What will happen if I break the pledge to remain a normal and average person? How will my friends and family and co-workers react?”

 

The really exciting and liberating point to make here is that what is referred to as 'consensus reality' is not a fact about reality.

 

How 'other people' see you and react to you is not fixed and immutable. What you think of as your 'life' is also not fixed and immutable.

 

You have a choice. You can accept reality as it 'appears to be' and remain a victim of your circumstances or you can learn how to change your experiences for the better.

 

Jon asks, "Who wants to wake up on a Tuesday morning and suddenly see life in a completely different way? Who wants that kind of shock to the system?"

 

If you answer that question by saying that you do wish to see life in a different way, you may like to read our book The Nature of Reality.

 

Reality is stranger than you can imagine; which is extremely liberating for those who dare to exercise their imagination.

Consciousness Drives The Universe - David Icke Website

Consciousness Drives The Universe - David Icke Website | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

This video contains an interesting collection of clips that include the following statements;

 

There is no matter as such.

 

The substance of the universe is consciousness.

 

The more you attach to a belief system the more you are helping create it by believing it.

 

Reality is built out of thought

 

 

To gain a better perspective of how you experience your reality and the role played by consciousness, consider this quote,

 

"I had come to suspect, and now felt compelled to acknowledge, that science and the physical world were products of human imagining; that we were not the cool observers of that world, but its passionate creators. We were all poets and the world was our metaphor."
Physicist Roger S Jones

The Corbett Report | Corbett Report Radio 119 – Your Slavery is Over! (If You Want It) | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

"On tonight’s broadcast James explores the question of freedom versus slavery. The signs of the police state control grid are everywhere, but does this mean we are already enslaved? If so, then what does it mean to be free? What if freedom was nothing more than a choice that we make each and every day to assert our cognitive independence?"

 

This broadcast provides a good example of the important role played by your thoughts as they affect the reality you experience.

 

If you accept the limited information you are 'fed' by the mainstream as the 'way things are', then you will be severely limiting your experiences.

 

If, however, you truly believe in the concept of freedom, you really can 'free your mind' and take back responsibility for your own life and experiences.

"In 1965, Martin Seligman conducted a series of experiments showing that dogs could be conditioned into accepting electric shocks, even when they were easily avoidable. This is the essence of learned helplessness, and like so many other findings, it is easily applicable to our own situation.

Humans, too, can learn to accept the “shocks” of corrupt governments or economic catastrophes or TSA groping or the NDAA or online censorship…but just as people can learn helplessness, they can learn the exact opposite.

Join us tonight on Corbett Report Radio as we explore the solutions to the learned helplessness conundrum."

The search for the Higgs boson continues.....

 

In this article the author discusses a few books on this topic, one of them called, 'The Infinity Puzzle', which "refers to efforts to rid quantum physics of 'unruly infinities' that crop up because the laws of quantum mechanics require physicists who are calculating how a particle will behave to consider an infinite number of possible scenarios. The Higgs mechanism played an important role in the development of a mathematical trick called 'renormalisation', which makes these sums manageable."

 

Whilst in physics infinite possibilities cannot be tolerated because they make the mathematicians uncomfortable, they can can be tolerated in contemplation of the nature of reality, because 'reality' itself is infinite.

 

Our experiences, however, are based on the 'probabilities' that we believe are possible.

Do We Live In A Holographic Universe? | Wake Up World

Do We Live In A Holographic Universe? | Wake Up World | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

The nature of nonlocality was proved by physicist Alain Aspect in 1982.

 

"Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn’t matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart."

 

The idea of 'spooky action at a distance' always troubled Einstein because it violates the 'law' that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light.

 

However, David Bohm understood Aspect's findings to mean that objective reality does not have a solid and separate existence, but that the universe is a hologram.

 

Although the article suggests that these findings do not hold any meaning for your everyday existence, this is not true. Understanding the nature of reality has a far greater impact for you as you learn how you can literally change your everyday experiences.

Mind-reading program translates brain activity into words

Mind-reading program translates brain activity into words | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

"Scientists have picked up fragments of people's thoughts by decoding the brain activity caused by words that they hear."

 

Whilst this sounds exciting news, there is no evidence that 'consciousness' is an epiphenomenon of the brain.

 

There is evidence that people who have parts of their brain missing have been able to continue functioning quite normally.

 

The following extract is from http://www.rense.com/general63/brain.htm

 

"When Sheffield's campus doctor was treating one of the mathematics students for a minor ailment, he noticed that the student's head was a little larger than normal. The doctor referred the student to Professor Lorber for further examination.
The student in question was academically bright, had a reported IQ of 126 and was expected to graduate. When he was examined by CAT-scan, however, Lorber discovered that he had virtually no brain at all."

 

This clearly suggests that the idea that specific areas of the brain perform specific tasks is unsubstantiated.

Rat study throws new light on animal consciousness - rats behave with empathy

Rat study throws new light on animal consciousness - rats behave with empathy | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

The article discusses a recent study that suggests that rats are capable of empathy.

 

This of course will be met with dismay by those who support animal testing on the basis that they are only 'dumb animals' that don't have any feelings.

 

The suggestion that rats have the ability to display empathy is referred to in surprise, because empathy is a trait that is supposed to be displayed only by 'higher' animals, primates and humans for example.

 

This is a redundant argument because there is no hierarchy in consciousness, only different expressions of consciousness.

WE NEED THE TRUTH IN ORDER TO HEAL

Although this video is mainly about people coming to terms with the truth about 9/11, it is a very interesting explanation of how people can remain stuck in a belief system, despite being presented with overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

 

Yet the nature of reality itself is very different from the way we have been taught.

 

It is important not to let a rigid belief system prevent you from understanding your true nature.

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy - Everett's Relative-State Formulation of Quantum Mechanics

One of the greatest problems that arose from Quantum Mechanics was its interpretation, which led to the famous debates that raged between Einstein and Bohr.

 

There was also the well-known problem of 'Schrodinger's cat', did it live or did it die?

 

According to Hugh Everett III, though, there are many worlds in which all outcomes are experienced.

 

In our waking state of consciousness, however, we only experience one outcome.

 

Which outcome we experience and how we experience it depends on our thoughts and beliefs.

EPR, Bell & Aspect: The Original References

EPR, Bell & Aspect: The Original References | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

The debate about the completeness of Quantum Mechanics began because Einstein had problems with what he called 'spooky action at a distance', in other words, non-locality.

 

That led to what is famously called the EPR paper.

 

This page contains links to the original 1935 EPR paper, J S Bell's 1964 paper on the EPR paradox and the 1982 Aspect et al paper, for those who require a more scientific analysis.

 

The other helpful links on the EPR paradox at the foot of the page include a paper published by Alain Aspect in Nature in 2007.

Dream Telepathy: Experiments in Nocturnal Extrasensory Perception. Montague Ullman Stanley Krippner Alan Vaughan Gardner Murphy. - Studies in Consciousness - Remote Viewing - Psi - Parapsychology | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

Dream telepathy was investigated at the dream laboratory in Maimonides Medical Center in New York City.

 

The investigators were Dr Montague Ullman and Dr Stanley Krippner and this book explains their pioneering scientific experiments over the course of a 10-year period.

 

These experiments prove that dreams have significance and that there is an interconnectedness of consciousness between the waking state and the dream state.

 

Although many people have 'precognitive' dreams, some do not seem to come true, at least not in the waking state of consciousness.

THE BASIS OF MASS MIND CONTROL

This extremely interesting article begins with these words,

 

"Mass mind control focuses on two elements: image and feeling."

 

I would add 'words' as a third element. Although, as the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, we are still guided for a great deal of our time by the words that we speak or that we hear other people speak.

 

When we see images or hear other people speak, we have a choice; to accept what we see and hear or to reject them.

 

Understanding that all our experiences are based on our own thoughts, beliefs and expectations means that we can make choices about the interactions we have with our world and if we do not like them, we can change them for the better.

 

The changes do not happen as a result of confrontation though, but through knowing that we are more in control of ourselves and our experiences than 'others' would like us to believe.

 

This is indeed a journey of self-discovery!

Cern scientists announce Higgs boson discovery - video

"Scientists at the Cern research centre in Switzerland reveal they have found a new subatomic particle that could be the Higgs boson..."

 

It seems likely that they have forgotten to take into account the Heisenberg principle, which is "A principle in quantum mechanics holding that increasing the accuracy of measurement of one observable quantity increases the uncertainty with which another conjugate quantity may be known."


Will their certainty of discovery of the new particle increase the uncertainty of another aspect of their findings?

 

It will be interesting to follow this story, especially in the light of the knowledge that 'reality' is not fundamentally 'physical'

Entangled Minds: Consciousness and the double-slit interference pattern

Entangled Minds: Consciousness and the double-slit interference pattern | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

"We've completed data collection for two replications of the experiments reported in this publication. Both were statistically significant and in the predicted direction. I'm in the process now of documenting the new experiments."

 

The double-slit experiment demonstrates the 'Quantum Measurement Problem' (QMP).

 

In the paper available from this link the authors Dean Radin et al explain this as,

"....the curious effect whereby quantum objects appear to behave differently when observed than when unobserved"

 

Furthermore, there is a clear role for consciousness, again from this paper, Dean Radin et al say,

"This strong view of the role of consciousness in the QMP has been endorsed by physicists ranging from d’Espagnat to von Neumann, from Stapp to Squires."

Those Who Trust Their Intuition and Emotions Can More Accurately Predict The Future

Those Who Trust Their Intuition and Emotions Can More Accurately Predict The Future | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

Understanding the nature of 'intuition' in the context of this article will assist an understanding of the 'probabilities' that you can choose to experience in your 'waking state of consciousness'.

 

Intuition is that 'part' of you that is connected to 'Consciousness', not just personal consciousness. That is why those who also trust their intuition have different experiences from those who only trust their intellect.

 

As we say in our book,

"Although experience seems to indicate that 'time' started somewhere in the distant 'past' and continues relentlessly through the 'present' and into the 'future', this experience can be shown by quantum physics to be illusory. It can be shown that past, present and future exist simultaneously; incredible as this may sound, it means you can learn to manipulate 'time'."

 

"It is always from the present moment that you choose what direction you will take and which probabilities you will use in your waking state of consciousness."

 

Therefore it is true to say that 'the future is not fixed'.

 

As you change your thoughts and beliefs in the present moment, your 'future' experiences can be altered in line with your new 'beliefs'.

 

This is truly liberating!

[Video] Bruce Lipton - Fear and Deception

There is one important lesson we must learn and it is simply this: "Fear is a great motivator". If you can get people to live in fear then you can sell them any damn thing that you want. And so the whole idea is that when we run out of one fear that has been pushing people in one direction, the organizations, the industries that are behind all this media and behind selling us all their products and ideas will come up with another fear, no matter which one it is.

 

Fear will also keep people feeling like they are a victim of their circumstances.

 

By understanding the nature of reality, you realise that you do not have to remain a victim because you can change your circumstances.

 

You do not have to live in fear. That is a truly liberating idea!

Repulsive gravity as an alternative to dark energy (Part 2: In the quantum vacuum)

Repulsive gravity as an alternative to dark energy (Part 2: In the quantum vacuum) | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it
(PhysOrg.com) -- During the past few years, CERN physicist Dragan Hajdukovic has been investigating what he thinks may be a widely overlooked part of the cosmos: the quantum vacuum.

 

He suggests that the quantum vacuum has a gravitational charge stemming from the gravitational repulsion of virtual particles and antiparticles.

 

Previously, he has theoretically shown that this repulsive gravity can explain several observations, including effects usually attributed to dark matter.

 

Additionally, this additional gravity suggests that we live in a cyclic Universe (with no Big Bang) and may provide insight into the nature of black holes and an estimate of the neutrino mass. In his most recent paper, published in Astrophysics and Space Science, he shows that the quantum vacuum could explain one more observation: the Universe’s accelerating expansion, without the need for dark energy.

Does Our Brain Really Create Consciousness?

Does Our Brain Really Create Consciousness? | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

"Quantum physics suggests that, at the atomic level, the act of observation affects the reality that is observed. In medicine, a person’s state of mind can have significant effects on the body’s ability to heal itself. And as neurophysiologists deepen their understanding of brain function questions about the nature of consciousness naturally raise their head."

 

Consciousness is an anomaly that science struggles to explain, but that is because it is trying to explain it in the terms of a 'physical' phenomenon, which it is not. Consciousness is also more than merely 'awareness' of physical reality.

 

Consciousness does not arise from matter, consciousness is the ground of all being and is therefore primary.

 

As the article suggests, it is time for a 'paradigm shift' in order to regard 'Consciousness' from a different perspective, which will provide for a better understanding of the nature of reality.

Does the Universe Exist if We're Not Looking? | Cosmology | DISCOVER Magazine | The Nature of Reality | Scoop.it

"Eminent physicist John Wheeler says he has only enough time left to work on one idea: that human consciousness shapes not only the present but the past as well."

 

An interview that took place in 2002 with John Archibald Wheeler (1911-2008)

 

He was a colleague of Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr and had many students, one of the most famous being Richard Feynman.

 

The famous double-slit experiement is explained here showing that 'the outcome of the experiment depends on what the physicists try to measure..."

 

"For the past two decades, though, he has pursued a far more provocative idea for an idea, something he calls genesis by observership. Our observations, he suggests, might actually contribute to the creation of physical reality. To Wheeler we are not simply bystanders on a cosmic stage; we are shapers and creators living in a participatory universe."

 

Hence the article title 'Does The Universe Exist If We Are Not Looking?'

He also clearly shows that 'materialist science isn't the whole picture'.

 

Quantum physics has taken science into a whole new realm that include the tenets of non-locality and discontinuity.

 

Non-locality provides evidence that time and space are not fundamental and that everything is interconnected

 

Discontinuity provides the evidence behind 'spontaneous' change, for example a miraculous healing that cannot be explained by normal processes.
