The Dimensions of Alertness

What does it mean to be Alert? When the notion of Alertness is mentioned at a conversation, people often tend to confuse it with being awake. Alertness is, however, not identical with being awake, since being awake is only one dimension of Alertness. It is the outermost dimension of Alertness, its surface only. In total, three dimensions of Alertness may be identified.

The Dimensions of Alertness

The surface, that is, the outermost dimension of Alertness is when the focus of attention is open the widest. Being Alert then means that now, in this very moment, with our eyes closed (or open) you pay attention to the processes of your inner world (bodily sensations, the stream of your thoughts, the shifting of your emotions), and the external world surrounding you (noises, scents etc. from the direct world around you). In such an instant you only focus your attention on what takes place in that very moment.

From the aspect of another, deeper dimension of Alertness it is a quality of your consciousness when you cease to evaluate, qualify and control the experience affecting you at that particular moment (disregard the functions of the mind) and, at the same time, you give up all your desires to control events. You have no expectations in connection with the given moment, you accept what is taking place, without making judgments, what is wrong and what is right for you.

The deepest dimension of Alertness is a state of Consciousness, the most important characteristic feature of which is the presence of the observing Consciousness, the capability of Sight. In this state of the Consciousness we, as an external spectator, view what is happening inside and around us, and we do not allow these events to take us with them, to affect us deeper. There is a virtual space between you as the contemplating Consciousness and the experiences affecting you. This space enables you to avoid identification with your experience and to look at that experience as an external spectator. Alertness is, at the same time, Presence, which means that your are not only aware of your current actions, but you are also aware of yourself. It is only possible to talk about real Alertness when all three dimensions are present at the same time.



Dimensions, Holograms, Reality And Energy

By Caeli Francisco

We have come to understand that all that is, exist within some or other dimension, which is not necessarily the physical or third dimension. The latter consists of all that can be seen by man or beast.

Therefore, I want to postulate the premise that this physical dimension, i.e. Earth, her solar system and that part of the Universe that can be seen either with the naked eye or with telescopes, is a holographic projection from out of the multidimensional universe. And because it is a projection it is not really real.

Examples of a hologram

01 - Holographic UniverseThe hologram called Earth was intelligently designed by Source of All that Is – a projection built as a hexagonal formation according to sacred geometry (the perfect mathematics of the Universe), i.e. Phi or the Golden Ratio, that offers infinite potential for every life form to grow, develop and thrive in all that this holographic projection and the multidimensional creation has to offer.

The original shape and structure of this projected reality contains the harmonious vibrations of Source, which are present in everything created by him (that is why I can say, “…as he himself is, so AM I”).

However, projected Earth-reality or the Earth hologram was not only built as a hexagonal formation but built in such a way that the six sides of the hexagon form a pyramidal shape wherein the harmonious vibrations of Source or Source Energy, also called cosmic energy, are forever spiraling in and out of the pyramid according to the Fibonacci sequence, a further aspect of the Golden Ratio.



Synchronicity & The Mystery of Chance

by Peter A. Jordan, Strange Mag | Waking Times

Flickr-Double-Rainbow-davedehetreAt some time or another it’s happened to all of us. There’s that certain number that pops up wherever you go. Hotel rooms, airline terminals, street addresses — its haunting presence cannot be escaped. Or, you’re in your car, absently humming a song. You turn on the radio. A sudden chill prickles your spine. That same song is now pouring from the speaker.

Coincidence, you tell yourself. Or is it?

For most mainstream scientists, experiences like this, however strange and recurrent, are nothing but lawful expressions of chance, a creation — not of the divine or mystical — but of simply that which is possible. Ignorance of natural law, they argue, causes us to fall prey to superstitious thinking, inventing supernatural causes where none exist. In fact, say these statistical law-abiding rationalists, the occasional manifestation of the rare and improbable in daily life is not only permissible, but inevitable.

Consider this: from a well-shuffled deck of fifty-two playing cards, the mathematical odds of dealing a hand of thirteen specified cards are about 635,000,000,000 to one. (This means that, in dealing the hand, there exist as many as 635,000,000,000 different hands that may possibly appear.) What statisticians tell us, though, is that these billions of hands are all equally likely to occur, and that one of them is absolutely certain to occur each time the hand is dealt. Thus, any hand that is dealt, including the most rare and improbable hand is, in terms of probability, merely one of a number of equally likely events, one of which was bound to happen.

Such sobering assurances don’t necessarily satisfy everyone, however: many see coincidence as embedded in a higher, transcendental force, a cosmic “glue,” as it were, which binds random events together in a meaningful and coherent pattern. The question has always been: could such a harmonizing principle actually exist? Or are skeptics right in regarding this as a product of wishful thinking, a consoling myth spawned by the intellectual discomfort and capriciousness of chance?



Spontaneous Order

Order Without Commands
Spontaneous order keeps the wheels of society turning without the need to issue commands from the center. A free society is orderly not because people are told what to do but because the evolving traditions and inherited institutions of human society allow individuals to pursue their own ends and by so doing, meet the needs of others. People’s behavior follows certain patterns because they have been accepted by society initially as they allowed the groups that adopted them to prosper. It is no accident, said Hayek, that the sharpest differences in material welfare can be seen throughout the Third World where the city meets the countryside and complex rule-guided societies meet intimate communities in which the rules are different.

The rules that allow a complex social order like a city or the global economy to function are not orders in the sense that term is usually understood. Rules that prevent individuals’ injuring others or engaging in theft or fraud or breaking promises in fact give people a great deal of latitude in their behavior. They tell people how to do things, but they do not tell them what they should do….[More…]


Do Atoms Understand Language?

by Jon Rappoport, Guest | Waking Times

atomDo atoms understand language?

Are you your brain and nothing else?

If so, mind-control programming is quite reasonable.

“The idea that somewhere in all the stacked-up universes, there might be a little corner that isn’t made out of matter or energy, but is truly independent of, and different from, sub-atomic particles… this idea confounds people, as if it might mean the end of all existence. It might mean a return to the old myths and fairy tales of the horrific priest-classes. It might mean everything science knows will vanish in a puff of smoke. But what if it doesn’t mean any of these things? What if it means that brutal power and domination could die out? What if it means there is an adventure waiting for all of us, beyond any and all pictures of conventional reality?” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Do atoms understand language?

Why ask such a question?

Because it goes to the heart of the slow-motion car crash that conventional physics has been experiencing for the past hundred years.

The question also puts philosophic materialism into a massive dither, from which it can’t hope to recover.

Conventional physics asserts that the universe is made entirely of particles. Atoms. Quarks, wavicles.

The universe includes the human brain.

Here is a sentence: “The Roman Empire collapsed, ushering in a Dark Age, a time of unprecedented chaos.”

Forget the truth or falsity of that sentence. It’s not at issue. What is at issue is the meaning of the sentence. You’re reading it now.

Do you understand it? Do you understand its meaning?

Of course you do. So do I.



The Mystery of Consciousness | Interview with Dr. Michael Clarage

Perhaps the greatest mystery of human experience is consciousness itself. Today, the fields of neuroscience and neurotechnology provide astounding insights into the electrical and chemical processes of the brain. Consequently, institutional science proposes with confidence that the brain alone creates conscious experience. Yet despite all that science has learned, the very source and essence of consciousness remains a puzzle. Thunderbolts colleague Dr. Michael Clarage shares with us his thoughts on the enduring mysteries of consciousness.


What do we need to know?

‘Ignorance is at the heart of any kind of discovery’ – an argument against the cult of knowledge and information

With all the scientific progress we’ve made over the past centuries, there’s still a massive, unknowable amount of information that we have yet to comprehend. In many cases, we haven’t figured out even basic truths about our world: what is the force of gravity, really? How does human consciousness actually function?

In this brief, animated and humorous skewering of the cult of knowledge, the BBC producer John Lloyd – famous for his work on Not the Nine O’Clock News, Blackadder and more recently QI – argues that for all our striving for intelligence and information, what matters most is learning how to conduct our everyday lives better.

The Universe Is Dreaming Itself Awake

rhafdhfby Paul Levy

When you begin to spiritually awaken, it is like waking up inside of a dream and recognizing that everything you are experiencing is nothing other than a very convincing projection, or display of your mind. The boundary between inner and outer, between dreaming and waking starts to dissolve, and you begin to realize that the same dreaming mind that is dreaming your dreams at night is dreaming your life. You realize that there is a Deeper Dreaming Self that is having a dream and we are it!

This Deeper Dreaming Self is active in us at all times and is continually seeking to express it itself. If we recognize the dreaming process that is happening right now, we can step into it and help it unfold consciously. It will activate our own inherent process of awakening and reconnect us with ourselves.

It is as though there is a dream that is trying to be dreamt through each and all of us — both individually and collectively. The universe is seen as a field not separate from and through which this deeper, dreaming process is continually expressing it itself.

Recognizing the deeper dream, or archetypal myth that we have been unconsciously acting out in our waking life reconnects us not only with the deeper ground of the psyche but also with other people, as everybody is seen to be fellow actors in a divine drama. It takes one’s life out of a purely personal framework and gives it a deeper sense of meaning, which makes suffering so much more bearable.

When you begin to awaken to the dream-like nature of things you realize that waking reality doesn’t exist in the way you thought it did, as something separate from you. Saying it is a dream, your own projection, reflection, etc. is the same thing as saying it is nothing other than your own mind appearing in a convincing, externalized display. Everything that happens is seen to be the unmediated expression of your mind, which you now understand can just as easily express it itself in outer events as it does in inner feelings, dreams or intuitions.



The Relation between the Sun and Human Consciousness

by Garima Roy

Summer-Forest-Sunshine“I could wish that I had such power of language as should avail me to assure those who would set the worship of man above that of the sun. Those who wish to worship man (an historical Christ) make a huge error!” ~ Leonardo Da Vinci

The sun is such a regular and constant sight in our daily life that we seldom acknowledge its existence. The sun is one of the primary reasons that life exists on earth.How many of us have really thought of the possibility that the sun might be a conscious being? When you think of the relationship we all share with the sun, how can it be just a ball of gas when it is responsible for life on Earth?

The sound of the chirping birds at the break of dawn, or certain types of flowers that wait for the first ray of sunlight to blossom and revel in its beauty; this serves as a reminder of how nature is closely dependent on the sun. Even the beauty of sunrise and sunset touches us all.

It has several hidden benefits that prove it is a lot more than a enormous lamp that lights your daily activities. “Nothing is more important to us on Earth than the Sun. Without the Sun’s heat and light, the Earth would be a lifeless ball of ice-coated rock. The Sun warms our seas, stirs our atmosphere, generates our weather patterns, and gives energy to the growing green plants that provide the food and oxygen for life on Earth.” ~ NASA

Ancient practice of sun worshiping

Primitive people worshiped the Sun and were afraid when it would disappear during an eclipse. Humans since time immemorial have worshiped the sun – In ancient Egyptian mythology, the name of the “Sun” god was “Ra”, the one who “ra”diates. Few Native American tribes, such as the Iroquois and Plains, recognize the sun as a life-giving force. Many Plains tribes still perform a Sun Dance each year, as a sign of renewal of the bond man has with life, earth, and the growing season.
