Time as a Lens: Speculations on self-referencing non-local awareness

by R.Ayana

imagesConsciousness is non-local. We can view objects and occurrences remotely, using cameras and other equipment. We can also use consciousness itself to remotely view points from other perspectives (to learn about remote viewing see the Farsight Institute’s material, for instance).

Heisenberg ‘proved’ that an act of conscious observation alters that which is observed. We change reality by experiencing it. We also alter the consciousness of beings which we observe.

…We Are the Stuff of Which Dreams Are Made…

imageMany native peoples have been ascribed the belief that to record their image “steals their soul”.

It is a commonplace of sympathetic magic belief systems that to view someone’s photograph or image provides a current conscious link to them.

At the moment an image which ‘will’ be viewed or heard in the ‘future’ is recorded, the consciousness of that future audience impinges upon that moment, directly interfacing/interlacing with the minds of those present.

The more future viewers of a work, the more conscious perspectives intersect at the moment of its inception. If a recording or creative work is to be successful in its transmission – i.e. experienced by a wide audience during or subsequent to its creation – then ‘the muse’ will be with the artist and the work will appear to produce itself, or by an act of inspiration characterised by lucid ease of creation.

“James Brown: Soul Survivor” [Documentary]

by The Arcane Front

James-Brown“You might say I’ve got a mark on my back where I never knew there was one. They fix it where I couldn’t see it myself. I was marked in many different ways. With names, for example. And each one has a different story behind it. As a kid growing up in a whorehouse, I was called Little Junior. As a teenager in prison, they called me Music Box. On the road in the ’50s I was Mr. Dynamite, The Hardest Working Man in Show Business. My full legal name is James Joe Brown, Jr. Ben Bart, my manager for many years and a man who was like a father to me, always called me Jimmy. Today I prefer to be called Mr. Brown.” ‒James Brown

7 Books That Will Change the Way You See the World

imageby Gary ‘Z’ McGee, Staff Writer | Waking Times

“You want weapons? Go to a library. Books are the best weapons in the world.” –Doctor Who

Books have a way of capturing us that movies and documentaries simply cannot compare to. The worst thing you can do is limit yourself to reading only a few books. The best thing you can do is find out what you’re interested in and get out there and read up on the subject. You’ll find that your interests will grow along with your knowledge, to the point that you’ll discover the deliciously heavy weight of knowing that you know nothing. If you’re looking for books that will challenge you mind body and soul, and cause you to see the world in new ways, look no further than the following seven books (just kidding, look further).

1.) Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche

“With this book I have given mankind the greatest present that has ever been made to it so far. This book, with a voice bridging centuries, is not only the highest book there is, the book that is truly characterized by the air of the heights—the whole fact of man lies beneath it at a tremendous distance—it is also the deepest, born out of the innermost wealth of truth, an inexhaustible well to which no pail descends without coming up again filled with gold and goodness.”Friedrich Nietzsche

Thus Spoke Zarathustra has something terribly well-crafted about it, and indeed – sit venia verbo – it is Nietzsche’s magnum opus. The books single task and raison d’etre consists in turning the human soul inside out. And it succeeds, but only if the reader is open enough to receive it. It has everything from the death of God to the overcoming of man through the prophecy of the  Übermensch to the “eternal recurrence of the same.” It possesses a unique experimental style, sang in “dithyrambs” narrated by Zarathustra. It is neither prose nor poetry but it is both somehow, breaking all literary rules but coming out smelling like a rose someone laid on God’s own grave. Nietzsche’s elegant and far-reaching conclusion is that while autonomy and self-overcoming are not easily attained, their absence proves catastrophic to both the individual and culture, as the embittered conformists seek new victims on whom to psychologically pillage with their ideals and avenge their psychic wounds born out of the fear of being an insecure being in an unforgiving universe.

2.) The Denial of Death by Ernest Becker

“Danger: real probability of the awakening of terror and dread, from which there will be no turning back.”Ernest Becker

Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Non-Fiction in 1974, The Denial of Death builds on the works of Søren Kierkegaard, Sigmund Freud, and Otto Rank. Throughout the book Becker’s voice is a chokehold of higher reason. He grabs us by the throat and brings us back down to earth, where he reveals how we are nothing more than insecure, fallible creatures “who need continued affirmation of our powers.” But it is through this continued affirmation where we discover our “symbolic self,” which we use to transcend the limits of our insignificance. This leads to our embarking on an “immortality project,” in which we become part of something we feel will last forever, beyond death. It is at this point that we transcend the dilemma of mortality through heroism. Becker speaks like his own tongue was a hero of a thousand faces itself, lashing like existential whips at the heart of the human condition. He forces our head over the edge of the abyss, challenging us to be heroically creative and responsible with bringing meaning, purpose, and significance to the grand scheme of our lives.

8 Reasons To Keep An Open Mind And Think For Yourself

by

image“When all think alike, no one thinks very much.” – Walter Lippmann, 2 times Pulitzer Prize winning American journalist

Free-thinkers will all struggle at times to comprehend why mainstream viewpoints can remain unquestioned by those around them. Why people will aggressively push the dominant viewpoint even when it’s outdated, unhelpful, or even blatantly contradicted by evidence. Why these viewpoints leave no room for others to hold differing ones, and complete conformity is often the end goal, even though free-thinkers advocate individual freedom and choice.

How can free-thinkers comprehend the static viewpoints many hold about the important issues that affect our lives? Issues that free-thinkers see as demanding continuous, rigorous debate and evaluation, and an openness to adaptation and change. Issues regarding lifestyles, food, the environment, animal welfare, nutrition, health, war, peace, human diversity, all manner of social systems, parenting, governments, politics, education, science, religion and spirituality.

Groupthink

I have found one of the most powerful influences in life is social system regulation and stability. When one person disagrees with us we can shrug it off, but when several people disagree with us the effect is very powerful, our ability to reality-test is being compromised. For asking as little as an open question or sharing an alternative viewpoint, others may automatically experience our actions as offensive, and we can be ostracised to the out-group of our society.

The Reality salesman makes a house call

MatrixBluePillRedPillby Jon Rappoport

…For a moment, a person sees beyond the picture of his own reality. He sees huge open space. He knows he can act on the basis of an inner leverage. He knows he has great power.

And then…

THE REALITY SALESMAN CALLS.

Step up, folks. This is a deal you can’t afford to miss. You know that thing you cling to like a drowning man in a turbulent sea?

It’s called reality, and I represent the company that manufactures it. I’m proud to say I’ve held this job for over a hundred thousand years. So as far as product knowledge is concerned, you just aren’t going to find anybody like me.

I’m here to tell you that reality is never anything more than rocks and bricks and concrete and steel. Reality is never anything more than a house and all the things in it, and the mementos you hold on to, to remind you of the past.

And in conjunction with that, I’m really selling…guess what?

A little thing called perception.

I’m selling How You See Things.

Discovering Truth: Acquiring Knowledge Vs Returning to The Inescapable

CroppedImage608342-imagining-the-truthWe throw models, and concepts, and frameworks, and paradigms, and explanations at the universe, all in an attempt to bring to its knees the truths underlying reality. The problem with this is the separation it causes; we uses concepts to represent truths, which in turn convince us that we are separate from these truths. This is not the case. All truths that we identify, in psychology, physics, chemistry, biology, are still the strings that pull us towards every action, thought, and event. As a matter of fact, even the acknowledgement of these truths is the result of these truths in action. We must not fall for the dichotomy of separation from us from the truth we discover.

There is something that cannot be explained. It is a certain something that if named, would do it no justice. In fact, in order to know it, it may be necessary to be forced to search for it. It is that which gives green its greenness, love its love-ness, but also that which undermines the power of any thought. It begins to be discovered when we decide to think “let go” and also to feel “let go”. We may then think: ” Well this too is a thought” but it is the thought to end all thoughts, and in that silence, the principle I speak of is noticed, because it is all that is left over when thought is abandoned, and so one has no choice but to notice.

I do not believe that our society is short on truth-seekers, I believe society is short on truth seekers of a certain kind. See, there are some people born with this innate vision that sees existence as the shocking thing it is, and this encourages one to “figure it all out.” By the time those in our society are culturally conditioned, figuring it all out comes to mean acquiring facts in order to build a paradigm within which this reality makes sense. But for a moment, consider an alternative way of “figuring it all out”:

Dreams and Other Altered States of Consciousness – An Upgrade to Higher Awareness

by Laura Fox

Spirit-Bear-by-Simon-HaidukAn underlined assumption in our society is that everyday waking consciousness is the truest expression of how things are out there in “objective” reality.

We assume it to be more valid than say dream states or other forms of Altered States of Consciousness (ASC) such as visions, trance, hypnosis, meditative states or hallucinations brought on by substances such as ayahuasca.

But what if this assumption is wrong? What if the realms we visit in an ASC such as dreams, are in fact just as valid, real and important (or perhaps more so) than everyday waking consciousness?

Evidence from perception science as well as quantum physics suggest this may in fact be the case. Furthermore, a deeper look into the ASC phenomenon itself reveals it may be more valuable than many of us appreciate today with dramatic implications for humanity on an individual and collective level.

The Science Behind Our Experience

The brain does a lot of work behind the scenes to create a coherent, stable and predictable experience. The following are two examples from perception that demonstrate this: Colour vision and the blind spot test.

Cannabis Gets the Front Page of National Geographic

by Faye Sakellaridis

315861-resin-dusted-blueberry-cheesecake-bud-615Cannabis is gracing the cover of the latest issue of Natural Geographic. Inside is a comprehensive look by Hampton Sides on how researchers worldwide are deepening their understanding of what one organic chemist calls a “medicinal treasure trove.”

via National Geographic:

Even into the middle of the 20th century, science still didn’t understand the first thing about marijuana. What was inside it and how it worked remained a mystery. Because of its illegality and tainted image, few serious scientists wanted to besmirch their reputations by studying it.

Then one day in 1963 a young organic chemist in Israel named Raphael Mechoulam, working at the Weizmann Institute of Science outside Tel Aviv, decided to peer into the plant’s chemical composition. It struck him as odd that even though morphine had been teased from opium in 1805 and cocaine from coca leaves in 1855, scientists had no idea what the principal psychoactive ingredient was in marijuana. “It was just a plant,” says Mechoulam, now 84. “It was a mess, a mélange of unidentified compounds.”

So Mechoulam called the Israeli national police and scored five kilos of confiscated Lebanese hashish. He and his research group isolated—and in some cases also synthesized—an array of substances, which he injected separately into rhesus monkeys. Only one had any observable effect. “Normally the rhesus monkey is quite an aggressive individual,” he says. But when injected with this compound, the monkeys became emphatically calm. “Sedated, I would say,” he recalls with a chuckle.

Short Animation Keeps It Simple And Clear: This Is How You Can Change The World

by

imageThe clip below is from Dirt The Movie, and it features Wangari Maathai, a Kenyan environmental and political activist who tells an inspiring tale of doing the best you can under seemingly insurmountable odds.

With so much new information coming to light, we’ve all asked ourselves the same question: “What can we do to effect change?” Whether it’s the prevention of war or deforestation to the spraying of pesticides on our foods, there seem to be hundreds, if not thousands, of areas where people would like to see change occur. This can be frustrating sometimes, because the solutions to these problems are already at hand. The problem lies within humanity itself and the way we treat each other. We create invisible barriers between us that make it impossible to work together and fix things, and at the same time there are those with tremendous power pulling strings behind the scenes, making it more difficult to even try to implement these solutions. Regardless of what issue we’re talking about, the list of available solutions is quite long, and we’ve provided countless examples of this on our website.

So many people are starting to see all of this information and ponder the question, “What can I do about it?” The answer is simple, be like this hummingbird.

Are The Odds Of Changing The World Really Unlikely? No!

Are the chances of changing the world really as slight as they seem? To be honest, no, and we are only starting to witness just how much of an impact we can have as one human race if we come together in a peaceful manner to bring attention to what is clearly important. The problem is not our inability to create and implement new ideas; our potential as a human race is huge. The problem is our consciousness and that “thing” within our thinking minds that prevents us all from coming together to create change.

Wake Up ~ Stop Sleeping Through Life – Alan Watts

It is futile to fight one habit by another habit

Questioner: If I understand you rightly, awareness alone and by itself is sufficient to dissolve both the conflict and the source of it. I am perfectly aware, and have been for a long time, that I am ‘snobbish.’ What prevents my getting rid of snobbishness?Krishnamurti: The questioner has not understood what I mean by awareness. If you have a habit, the habit of snobbishness for instance, it is no good merely to overcome this habit by another, its opposite. It is futile to fight one habit by another habit. What rids the mind of habit is intelligence. Awareness is the process of awakening intelligence, not creating new habits to fight the old ones. So, you must become conscious of your habits of thought, but do not try to develop opposite qualities or habits. If you are fully aware, if you are in that state of choiceless observation, then you will perceive the whole process of creating a habit and also the opposite process of overcoming it. This discernment awakens intelligence, which does away with all habits of thought. We are eager to get rid of those habits which give us pain or which we have found to be worthless, by creating other habits of thought and assertions. This process of substitution is wholly unintelligent. If you will observe you will find that mind is nothing but a mass of habits of thought and memories. By merely overcoming these habits by others, the mind still remains in prison, confused and suffering. It is only when we deeply comprehend the process of self-protective reactions, which become habits of thought, limiting all action, that there is a possibility of awakening intelligence, which alone can dissolve the conflict of opposites. – Krishnamurti, Collected Works, Vol. III,73,Choiceless Awareness

How to Jump between Dimensions in Time

imageTime if a finite and a calculated thing right?  Well if you are going by chronos time then the answer is yes.  But what if I were to tell you that there is a completely different perceptional view of time that is actually what you are looking for?  This new type of time is called kairos time.

According to ancient Greek there are two different ways of viewing and experiencing time.  The first is known as chronos or chronological time.  This is the type of sequential time that most people focus their lives around.  Working 8 hour days, having weekends off, taking an hour off for lunch are all examples of the strict scheduling of your chronos time.

There is another time, or experience of time, that they also talk about in ancient Greek called Kairos time.  Kairos time is “the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment)”.  Kairos time ” signifies a time lapse, a moment of indeterminate time in which everything happens.”  – wikipedia

This is the now moment, the timeless experience of universal flow where is seems like either regular time doesn’t matter, slows down, or stops completely.  There are people out there doing research to learn more about this type of flowing experience because it is often linked to super human perception, eureka inspiration, divine creativity, and powerful life changing moments.

USDA Introduces Non-GMO Label!

by Amanda Froelich

Gmo3For years consumers have been asking the U.S. government to institute mandatory labeling for any product containing genetically modified ingredients, and now the USDA is finally taking action.

As shared by Associated Press, the Agriculture Department has developed a new government certification and labeling for foods that are free of genetically modified ingredients. This eventful move by the USDA comes as a response form consumer groups’ pushing for mandatory labeling of GMOs.

The first of its kind, this certification would be voluntary and companies would have to pay for it. If approved, however, the foods would be able to carry a “USDA Process Verified” label along with a claim that they are free of GMOs.

Think Homelessness Can’t be Eradicated? These Communities Did It

by Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer | Waking Times

HomelessnessThe costs of homelessness is rarely discussed. We mostly hear statistics about the number of children living on the streets, the vast number of hungry individuals fed in soup kitchens, and the dangers that homeless families face during severe weather. As communities, we pull together by donating to food banks and participating in homeless outreach programs, even though government regulations are putting limits on where and how we can help the homeless. (see: 90 Year Old Man Arrested for Feeding the Homeless).

We are naturally inclined to want to help people in need, but most of us don’t understand the economics of caring for the homeless.

The Costs of Homelessness

Often funded by government subsidies, charity organizations and sometimes private patrons, taking care of the homeless carries a significant price tag, once you add up the cost of running emergency shelters and transitional housing, collecting and distributing food and clothing, offering mental health, rehabilitation and employment assistance, etc. What do these costs amount to?

Ted Clugston, Mayor of Medicine Hat – a small town in Canada that has recently reached its goal of eliminating homelessness – estimates that it costs up to $100,000 a year to “support” a person that lives on the street, versus about $20,000 a year that it would cost to house someone. Why is the cost of homelessness so high? In addition to the services listed above, Clungston found that homelessness also carries with it indirect costs such as increased emergency room visits and more interactions with the police.

These Plantable Coffee Cups Contain Seeds and Grow into Trees After Being Used!

plantable-coffee-cupHow many cups of coffee do you drink every day? In fact, the average American drinks more than three cups a day, which makes it 400 million cups for the whole population per day! Can you imagine how much trash is being produced in the country from the disposable coffee cups only?

Of course, cardboard coffee cups are neutral to the environment as they can be recycled a few times. But what about the styrofoam ones? According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, 25 billion styrofoam cups are thrown out in the US every year, and it will take more than 500 years for this waste to decompose.

Now, a new start-up based in California has come up with an awesome idea for coffee lovers which could help solve two environmental issues at the same time – the problems of excessive waste and deforestation.

The company called Reduce. Reuse. Grow. has created a biodegradable coffee cup which can be buried in the ground after being used and will then plant the seeds embedded in its fibers. Moreover, the seeds embedded in the cup are native to the area where it is bought! Till now, these are only California seeds, but the company plans to expand its activity to other states if its campaign on KickStarter goes well.

Zen Dynamics: The Obstacle is the Path

by Gary Z McGee

obstacle-buddha“Doing new things invariably means obstacles. A new path is, by definition, uncleared. Only with persistence and time can we remove debris and impediments. Only in struggling with impediments that made others quit can we find ourselves on untrodden territory –only by persisting and resisting can we learn what others were too impatient to be taught.” ~ Ryan Holiday, The Obstacle is the Way

The obstacle, the problem, the hindrance, the difficulty, the complication, the impediment, the whatever-is-standing-in-your-way, is not in the way. It is the way! As this ancient Zen parable reveals, “every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.”

It’s the very thing that will make you stronger, more resolute, and more robust. It’s the struggle that will sharpen you into an instrument powerful enough to cut through all red tape. It’s the rub that will polish you into a more refined version of yourself. Within every obstacle is an opportunity to enhance our current condition, we just have to be present with it.

The obstacle isn’t to be avoided. It is to be confronted. It should be embraced and transformed into an excuse to be courageous. It should be transcended in order to provide purpose. Taking the “easy” way is not always the best way. Like Darnell Lamont Walker said, “Sometimes our walls exist just to see who has the strength to knock them down.” Indeed, knock those walls down and then build steps that can launch you into an adventure of the most high. It’s actually the struggle of life that makes life great. It’s a matter of disposition: get busy growing or get busy idling.

Stay Strong, World Changers

by Wes Annac, Contributor | Waking Times

sunriseearthIt can be easy to forget why we’re here or why we’re doing everything we are, and it can especially be easy to give up and turn to things that distract us from our purpose and keep us from helping others. We have to persevere when the stresses pile up and we don’t feel like we can handle it all, because we know on a deeper level that we can.

It’s common knowledge in the conscious community that we’re capable of more than we realize at the surface, and to do anything significant to advance our collective evolution, we have to recognize that we’re infinite and find the inspiration to help the world in ways we enjoy.

Along the way, we’ll inevitably meet difficulties and stresses that we’ll have to persevere through, but we’ll come out of it all with a new inner wellspring of knowledge and experience.

The stresses will be difficult to navigate if we don’t learn to tap in to our intuitive wisdom, and our intuition, along with the higher consciousness we access through it, will help us through any hard times that confront us.

Everything gets easier when we realize that we aren’t on this journey alone, and we have the intuitive assistance of the higher self and, I’d imagine, plenty of other guides who can be with us if we request their assistance.
