Dubai Adds Hoverbikes To Its Technocratic Police State, Becoming Ground Zero For Cities Of The Future

By Nicholas West | Activist Post

Most readers (and certainly this writer) will likely never visit the exorbitantly priced Dubai, which might make the following story seem less threatening. However, Dubai is emerging as the perfect insulated testing ground for a range of high-tech applications that could very well spread to many corners of the world in the near future.

The hoverbike, created in a joint project with Russian company Hoversurf, was unveiled recently at the Gitex Technology Week Exhibition. The video below demonstrates its maneuverability with a police officer on board, which they claim can operate for 25 minutes up to 43 miles per hour. However, the vehicle also can be remotely operated, permitting it to fly up to its maximum of 16 feet off the ground.

The hoverbike is expected to make its functional debut in Dubai by 2020.

This announcement follows on the heels of the launching of mini police surveillance vehicles that look like electric cars. These are set to be released in fleets to patrol the city with biometric and conventional surveillance tools. The system will augment other security robots on patrol.

The new security system is so advanced that the mini-vehicle even comes with its own drone which can be launched via a rear sleeve — both are monitored and linked to Dubai Police command room.

…the O-R3 performs 360-degree surveillance and deters potential crime with its formidable presence on site. With self-charging capability, patrol and protection is provided 24/7, all year round.

…“It can recognise people in any area and identify suspicious objects and can track suspects. It has a drone and the user [police officer] needs to access the car through fingerprint. It will be deployed at tourist destinations in Dubai,” Brigadier Al Razooqi said.

Dubai appears to be the perfect testing ground for what very well could become the prototype city of the future. As the largest and most populous city in the UAE with a concentrated and wealthy population of around 3 million, it is ruled by an absolute monarchy under Sharia Law that has free rein to rapidly implement new forms of governance. However, as stated in the article quoted above, the Singapore-based company helping to implement security measures in Dubai – OTSAW – “hails its new driverless vehicle as groundbreaking for the future of police surveillance for large cities such as Dubai.”

Dubai, in fact, will be hosting World Expo 2020 where three pillars of future cities will be discussed: Mobility, Opportunity, and Sustainability. Click on the linked words below for full details about the architecture being built to centrally plan and control the technocratic smart city.

Mobility – Will address some of what Dubai already is close to implementing such as driverless vehicles, taxis, and drone transportation, but also will cover communications, delivery and centralized planning within the smart city of the future.

Opportunity – What jobs will be needed in the automated city of the future? How will children be educated? How will money and government need to be restructured?

Sustainability – Resource management, climate change, health and future cures, smart city architecture and … right there on the page: “Can you engineer the weather and national climates?”

As we can see, based upon the scope of what Dubai is set to offer, a police hoverbike is just one tiny step toward a much greater vision for any country that signs on to a centrally planned technocratic future.

First-Ever, Easy-To-Use Device Converts Polluted Air Into Fresh Oxygen

By Amanda Froelich | True Activist

Did you know? Breathing polluted air reduces a human’s lifespan by 1-2 years. And yet, 5.5 million people on the planet are living in locations where air quality is toxic to breathe. In Beijing, China, for instance, a new condition has arisen: Beijing cough.

The problem of air pollution is everywhere, which is why the Treepex was developed. The “revolutionary” pocket device converts polluted air into fresh, clean oxygen.

It may not be the most fashionable device, but it is allegedly able to purify the air you breathe — wherever you go, whenever you need. That’s important, as air pollution is one of the biggest crises in the 21st century.

Each day, the average American breathes 2 gallons of air per minute. This equates to 3,400 gallons of air each day! And in southern California, 5,000 premature deaths are caused due to pollution from diesel trucks each year. No matter the location, everyone is affected. Outdoor air pollution ranks in the top ten killers on the planet — and that’s why inventions such as the Treepex matter.

The company’s website states: “Treepex uses CRISPR technology to extract the DNA of actual trees to recreate living cells that are responsible for photosynthesis and compress them into the cartridge. When you take a look at a leaf with a microscope you can see the cells which are responsible for the photosynthesis. And that’s only a very, very little part of the entire leaf. Simply, think about this as if thousands of leaves were squeeze [sic] into the small cartridge.”

In essence, the device ensures you have a source of fresh air, wherever you go.

The Treepex is easy to use and comes with a variety of neat features. A mobile app calculates how much oxygen you inhale daily, and measures the polluted air in the environment you live in. The device is also made with anti-allergenic materials, so every person can use it.

The company admits that the Treepex device is not ideal for everyday use. However, it could be beneficial for short-term business trips and, according to the company, “in the case of massive future wars forcing us to live in underground shelters.”

You Embody What Your Ancestors Experienced 14 Generations Ago

By Aaron Kesel | Natural Blaze

Researchers have discovered that environmental genetic changes (epigenetics) can be passed down for an incredible 14 generations in an animal – the largest span ever observed in a living organism.

A team led by scientists from the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) in Spain took genetically engineered nematode roundworms called C. elegans that carry a transgene for a fluorescent protein. Which when activated, this gene made the worms glow bright under the ultraviolet light.

Then, they changed the temperature of their containers. Keeping the nematodes at (68° F), they measured low activity of the transgene – which as a result the worms hardly glowed at all.

Researchers then changed the control in the experiment moving the worms to a warmer climate of 77° F, they suddenly lit up like Christmas trees, which meant the fluorescence gene had become less dormant.

The scientists finally moved the worms back to cooler temperatures to see what would happen to the activity of the fluorescence gene.

Surprisingly, the worms continued to glow, suggesting they retained an “environmental memory” of the warmer climate scientist continued finding that the transgene was highly active.

That memory was shockingly passed on to their offspring for seven generations, none of which had ever experienced the warmer temperatures in their lifetimes. The scientists discovered that the baby worms had somehow inherited this epigenetic gene for the warmer climate through both eggs and sperm.

The researchers further pushed their results – keeping five generations of nematodes at 77° F and then isolating the other half of their offspring to colder temperatures – the worms still continued to have higher transgene activity. The study revealed that this continued for an incredible 14 generations, which roughly would take 50 days for the reproduction of the worms.

“We don’t know exactly why this happens, but it might be a form of biological forward-planning,” Adam Klosin from EMBO and Pompeu Fabra University, Spain said.

“Worms are very short-lived, so perhaps they are transmitting memories of past conditions to help their descendants predict what their environment might be like in the future,” co-researcher Tanya Vavouri from the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute in Spain added.

So how does this epigenetic inheritance research affect human beings?

“Inherited effects in humans are difficult to measure due to the long generation times and difficulty with accurate record keeping,” states one recent review of epigenetic inheritance according to scientists.

Numerous studies allege to show examples of epigenetic genes in humans showing all types of effects.

Biologists have long suspected that some kind of epigenetic inheritance occurs at the cellular level.

Studies have shown that both the children and grandchildren of women who survived the Dutch famine of 1944-45 were found to have increased glucose intolerance when they were older.

Other researchers have found that descendants of Holocaust survivors had lower levels of the hormone cortisol, which helps your body recover from a traumatic experience.

Another study by the North Carolina State University and the University of Tennessee found that a “poorly trained” immune system could be inherited as well as past trauma and even nutritional deficiencies. These results were discovered after the examination of the skulls of the Cherokee Native Americans who were descendants of those who survived the Trail of Tears.

This is backed up by a number of other scientific reports by other universities one such is the CAS study, published in the journal Science by the University of Massachusetts Medical School. That experiment revealed that a single junk food-eating generation can pass on the metabolic disorders it gains from an unhealthy diet to the next.

As crazy as it sounds, even WiFi signals can potentially affect the epigenetics of childhood development according to Cindy Sage and Ernesto Burgio. 

Finally, BBC published a report in 2013 where scientist found that “transgenerational epigenetic inheritance” can even affect behavior due to events in previous generations influencing the current generation.

Do We Live in a Special Part of the Universe?

Video Source: Fraser Cain

By Fraser Cain | phys.org

We’ve already talked about how you’re living at the center of the universe. Now, I’m not going to say that the whole universe revolves around you… but we both know it does. So does this mean that there’s something special about where we live?

This is a reasonable line of thinking, and it was how got its start. The first assumed that the sun, moon, planets and stars orbited around the Earth. That the Earth was a very special and unique place, distinct from the rest of the universe.

But as astronomers started puzzling out the nature of the laws of physics, they realized that the Earth wasn’t as special as they thought. In fact, the laws of nature that govern the forces on Earth are the same everywhere in the universe. As Isaac Newton untangled the laws of gravity here on Earth, he realized it must be the same forces that caused the moonto go around the Earth, and the planets to go around the sun.

That the light from the sun is the same phenomenon as the light from other stars.

When astronomers consider the universe at the largest scales, they assume that it’s homogeneous, and isotropic. Technical words, I know, so here’s what they mean.

When astronomers say the universe is homogeneous, this means that observers in any part of the universe will see roughly the same view as observers in any other part. There might be local differences, like our mostly harmless planet Earth, orbiting the future course of an interstellar bypass. Or a desert planet with two suns, or a swampy world in the Dagobah system.

At the smallest scales, they’ll be different. But as you move to larger and larger scales, it’s all just planets, stars, galaxies, and black holes. And if you unfocus your eyes, it all looks pretty much the same.

Isotropic means that the universe looks the same in every direction. If you were floating alone in the cosmic void, you could look left, right, up, down out to the edge of the and see galaxies, galaxy clusters and eventually the radiation in all directions. Every direction looks the same.

Meditation Can ‘Turbo Charge’ The Brain By Synchronizing Two Key Regions

By Christina Sarich | Waking Times

Researchers from Boston University have figured out two areas of the brain which must be activated to ‘turbo charge” cognitive functioning.

Two brain regions – the medial frontal and lateral prefrontal cortices – control most executive function. It was found that by synchronizing these areas of our grey matter, participants in a study experienced better, faster brain functioning. De-synchronizing these areas resulted in the opposite – a slower brain.  However, if there is more to the story of our brain’s left or right brain dominance?

Using high-definition transcranial alternating current stimulation (HD-tACS) to synchronize oscillations between the medial frontal and lateral prefrontal cortices, resulted in faster neurotransmitter firing.

The synchronization of these two areas of the brain also resulted in better communication abilities and more control over the participants’ emotional reactions.

The Alarm Bell of the Brain

Robert Reinhart, assistant professor of psychological and brain sciences at Boston University and lead researcher for the study called the medial frontal cortex the “alarm bell of the brain.”

Reinhart explains“If you make an error, this brain area fires. If I tell you that you make an error, it also fires. If something surprises you, it fires.”

In healthy people, this region of the brain works hand in hand (or perhaps lobe in lobe) with a nearby region, the lateral prefrontal cortex, an area that stores rules and goals and also plays an important role in changing our decisions and actions. Getting them to work together more efficiently allows a more efficient correction of action, and thought.

The research, published October 9, 2017, in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), suggests that electrical stimulation can quickly increase or decrease executive function in healthy people and change their behavior.

“The ability to control our behavior,” states the paper’s author, is “fundamental to the human condition, and is impaired in those with neurological disorders;” however, this ability to control our behavior has grown increasingly important as forces outside ourselves aim to gain control over it for us.

The Whole Brain Approach

This research is yet more proof that a “whole brain” approach to learning or problem solving is most effective.

It has long been understood that certain meditative practices increase whole brain functioning, and particularly, enhance the firing of neurons in the two brain areas mentioned in the Boston University study, but other areas of the brain are also enhanced.

For example, it was found that in long-time Buddhist meditators who focused on compassion, the anterior insula was activated.

“Every neuroscientist will have their favorite part of the brain,” says neuroscientist, Richard Davidson. Davidson is famous for running a series of MRI scans on Buddhist monks along with the Dalai Lama. The anterior insula is one of his favorites, because it’s where a lot of brain-body coordination takes place.  He states,

“The systems in the brain that support our well-being are intimately connected to different organ systems in our body, and also connected to the immune and endocrine systems in ways that matter for our well-being.”

Numerous additional studies confirm that profound changes occur in the brain – causing whole-brain synchronization, in long-term meditators.

Most of Us are Left-Brain Dominant

The average, non-meditating person is usually left or right brain dominant, with most of us in the Western world being left-brain dominant. This makes for studious, hard-working individuals, but may inhibit us from experiencing greater spiritual insights, required by right-brained, or whole-brained thinking.

Some would argue we were made this way, to be easily controlled – to create a slave race that was intelligent enough to follow orders, and to do the labor required of an elite class – but dumb enough not to strive toward the full realization of our coded DNA for conscious evolution, or enlightenment.

There is a large body of evidence presented by Graham Hancock, and other ancient historians which asserts that the human race, or Homo Sapiens Sapiens, was not, according to the Sumerian sacred literature, created by the God of all Universes, but by lesser Gods pretending to be the “Almighty” God (Infinite Intelligence) who came to earth after destroying their own planet, and desirous of creating a slave race which would serve them as they built their own civilization on earth.

Neuroscientist Experiences Bliss When Her Left brain is Silenced in a Stroke

For example, Jill Bolte Taylor, a neuroscientist at Harvard’s brain research center, only experienced the “bliss” described in enlightened yogis and shamans when she had a stroke, and the entire left lobe of her brain – responsible for ego, judgement, and analysis – was rendered temporarily mute.

In Closing

While the Boston study is significant in its findings, it only adds more credence to the importance of whole-brain synchronization (found easily via meditation) for overall performance, well-being, compassion, and control of our emotional processes – and yes, even the attainment of nirvana, and an inevitable escape from the left-brain-supported prison matrix.

Soon Robots Will Have More Rights than Humans

robot-rights

By Jake Anderson | The Anti Media

(ANTIMEDIA) First, let me define my terms. When I use the word ‘robot,’ I am not referring only to automated machines or cybernetic androids. For the purposes of this article, ‘robot’ will refer to any artificially created entity or interface that is endowed with a high level of sentience and intelligence. A great example of this in popular culture is the operating system Samantha from the Spike Jonze film, Her, though this character is better utilized as a lens through which to assess the emotional dimensions of artificial intelligence.

Related Article: Don’t Let Artificial Intelligence Take Over, Top Scientists Warn

By invoking robots, I am primarily referring to artificial intelligence. To be sure, artificial intelligence already exists. It just doesn’t look like what science fiction prognosticators of previous decades originally envisioned. Anytime you type into the Google search bar and the field is auto-populated with suggestions, that is an example of algorithmic artificial intelligence. Anytime Siri responds to one of your absurdly facetious questions (or legitimate queries), you are witnessing an embryonic form of artificial intelligence. We take it for granted, but these are extraordinary advances that would be have seemed impossible to previous generations.

In the future, the evolution of artificial intelligence will be so dramatic and rapid that we will scarcely be able to identify the point at which strong artificial intelligence surpasses human cognition, although some would argue that has already happened. Already, innovations like IBM’s Watson are surpassing the limits of human intelligence and, in the case of a computer program called Eugene Goostman, passing the Turing Test with flying colors.

My purpose here is not to assess the evolution of artificial intelligence or even speculate on its future. For aspects of the latter, see my previous article for Anti-Media. In the current article, I want to pose and answer a specific question: will robots and artificial intelligence entities of the future have more rights than flesh and blood humans? On its face, this is a specious question, riddled with esoteric trapdoors and loopholes. For one, human rights is already an emotionally complex and legally obtuse topic. Human rights violations are rampant and even in the world’s most democratized, ostensibly benevolent societies, entire classes of humans lack basic rights, which in my opinion include healthcare, education, food, and water.

Related Article: Disposable People: Obama, the TPP & Human Rights Betrayal

In modern times, the primary reason for this continued dearth of human rights is the power of oligarchy, plutocracy, and corporatocracy. Wealth and corporate power trump individual human rights. The best example of this being codified into law is the Supreme Court decision, Citizens United. Another major looming manifestation of corporate rights superseding human rights is the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the unprecedentedly secretive trade agreement by which international corporate tribunals will be able to overrule the laws of national legislatures.

Let’s return to the issue of robot rights, or the rights of sentient beings. It is my belief that initially robots will have no rights and the very idea will be laughed at. That’s because the first few generations of weak artificial intelligence robots will not approximate human likeness. Currently, this is known as the ‘uncanny valley,’ whereby something seems eerily close to human, such as the face of a robot sex doll, but feels wrong for some inexplicable reason (perhaps the fact that it’s a robot sex doll).

However, when artificial intelligence advances to even the early stages of the evolutionary paradigm shift Ray Kurzweil describes in The Singularity Is Near, our ideas about what it is to be human and what constitutes intelligence will be forever altered. This will be further complicated by humans upgrading their own bodies and minds with cybernetic tools and transhumanist technologies. Such advances will blur the line between biological and artificial intelligence.

Within the next few decades, humans will almost certainly be augmenting themselves with AI and we will see many cases in which the AI is used as a defense for a wide variety of crimes. Conversely, strong AI will eventually issue counter lawsuits against humans who they deem are demeaning and besmirching the name of artificial intelligence (presumably after dismantling ‘artificial intelligence’ itself as moniker in favor of something more like ‘sentient beings’).

In an article entitled Law Professors Argue Future Plausibility Of Robots Earning Free Speech Rights,” two law professors ponder the future First Amendment rights of strong artificial intelligence.

They present a hypothetical case that illuminates the complexities of the subject:

“Imagine, for example, a Supreme Court case called Robots United that involves a First Amendment challenge to the government’s regulation of speech by a robot with strong AI, where the regulation restricts speech on a matter of public concern based on the expression’s content and its speaker’s identity. Judy Jetson — a former Solicitor General of the United States now representing private parties — is the robot’s lawyer and argues that the robot itself has free speech rights. Nobody in the courtroom laughs out loud, though some remain skeptical. The justices realize that precedent already affords free speech protection to the speech of artificial entities as well as to those who lack fully mature autonomous capacity. Indeed, the case law hinges more on pragmatism and on expression’s informational value than on any philosophical purity about speaker personhood or rights. This audience focused perspective may lead the Court to a remarkable conclusion: speaker humanness may be a sufficient but not logically essential part of its theoretical and doctrinal constitutional calculus. Judy Jetson and her robot client may prevail.”

Ultimately, the professors conclude that strong artificial intelligence will be granted First Amendment constitutional rights of personhood. It is this word, personhood, on which my argument hinges, as in the last couple decades we have seen the nature of this word change — but not by a revolution of artificial intelligence or robots, but rather by globalist coup, spearheaded by multinational corporations. Thus far, it is corporate personhood that has changed the nature of humanity, not robots, though automation is no doubt irrevocably altering the global economy.

To extrapolate even further, strong artificial intelligence, at least initially, is almost certain to be proprietary property owned by both corporations and governments. If Citizens United serves as any example, corporatized entities created by humans can have just as many legal rights as biological flesh and blood humans. And these rights are emboldened and strengthened by the extraordinary wealth corporations wield and the power this grants them over lawmakers and, as a result, the rights of individual humans.

Related Article: The 10 Biggest Dangers Posed By Future Technology

To throw an incendiary hypothetical question your way: who is more likely to face criminal charges, a cop who vandalizes a Google office, steals sensitive information and sells it to hackers… or a cop who guns down a black man? I submit to you that the answer is the former.

In the future, the question may change to whether it is murder to shoot a sentient Amazon delivery drone out of the sky (or a sentient military drone). I submit to you that it will be and that corporate and government-owned artificial intelligence robots will enjoy more secure human rights than humans themselves because with AI, there will be money, proprietary source code, brand recognition, and possibly national security information on the line and these are demonstrably more important to the powers that be than human rights.

In a world in which machine automation is slowly but surely taking over the human workforce and corporations continue to consolidate unprecedented global control, I can’t reach any other conclusion but that in the near future working-class humans will rarely live as anything more than indentured servants, peasants in a new feudal order of corporate AI.

Tech Geniuses – Including Elon Musk – Think We’re Living In a Holographic Reality, Are Funding Ventures To Free The Collective

elon-musk-compressed

By Amanda Froelich | True Activist

When Elon Musk speaks, the world listens. That’s because the founder of Space X, Tesla and PayPal has a powerful vision to chance the world and humanity, and is already doing so with his eco-friendly innovations and intelligent business ventures. From investing in sustainable energy production to reduce global warming to reducing the “risk of human extinction” by “making life multi-planetary” by setting up a human colony on Mars, it cannot be argued that his creative mind has positively benefited humanity’s evolution. 

One theory that few have heard of, however – let alone accepted, is the thought that this reality is a simulated one. According to The Independent, the inventor is confident that the possibility of life not being a holographic projection is “one in billions”. It’s not a fly-by theory, either. Reportedly, Musk has had “so many simulation discussions it’s crazy”, and that it’s gotten to the point where “every conversation [he had] was the AI/simulation conversation”.

Intriguingly, he’s not alone. According to The New Yorker’s Tad Friend, 

“Many people in Silicon Valley have become obsessed with the simulation hypothesis, the argument that what we experience as reality is in fact fabricated in a computer.” Because of this, two tech billionaires have gone so far as to secretly engage scientists to work on breaking us out of the simulation.”

Whether or not Musk is one of the investors in the venture to free humanity’s collective is unknown, but what is common knowledge is that Musk thinks this reality is a simulated one.

At the Code Conference earlier this year, the investor said:

“The strongest argument for us probably being in a simulation I think is the following. 40 years ago we had Pong – two rectangles and a dot. That’s where we were.

“Now 40 years later we have photorealistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and it’s getting better every year. And soon we’ll have virtual reality, we’ll have augmented reality,” he continued. “Now 40 years later we have photorealistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and it’s getting better every year. And soon we’ll have virtual reality, we’ll have augmented reality.

Musk explained that regardless if the rate of advancement dropped exponentially, we would still be moving forward at an intense speed relative to the age of life. This realization prompted him to conclude that we, as humans, are living in a type of simulated computer game. And, he says, the likelihood that what is known as existence isn’t a simulation is “one in billions”.

While this might sound insane to some, it’s a reality one should hope for, according to Musk. Why? Because if the argument that all of life in this universe lives in a simulation isn’t true, then civilization stops advancing, and “that may be due to some calamitous event that stops civilization.”

He added:

So maybe we should be hopeful this is a simulation, because otherwise we are going to create simulations indistinguishable from reality or civilization ceases to exist. We’re unlikely to go into some multimillion-year stasis.

As mentioned above, Musk is not the only one who believes this reality is a simulated one. As The Telegraph reports, in 2003, philosopher Nick Bostrom proposed the idea that all of life on this plane of existence is living in a computer simulation run by humanity’s descendants. Then a decade later, Discover magazine reported that it possible for physicists to test whether we live in a simulation by studying radiation from space. Studies to resolve the question of whether or not we live in a simulated reality continue today.

Related Article: Elon Musk: There’s One in Billion Chance We AREN’T Living in a Computer Simulation

Professor Peter Millican, a teacher of philosophy and computer science at Oxford University, has adopted an attitude most can likely align with. He says,

It is an interesting idea, and it’s healthy to have some crazy ideas. You don’t want to censor ideas according to whether they seem sensible or not because sometimes important new advances will seem crazy to start with.”

“You never know when good ideas may come from thinking outside the box. This Matrix thought-experiment is actually a bit like some ideas of Descartes and Berkeley, hundreds of years ago.

“Even if there turns out to be nothing in it, the fact that you have got into the habit of thinking crazy things could mean that at some point you are going to think of something that initially may seem rather way out, but turns out not to be crazy at all.”

Where Quantum Physics, Neuroscience & Health Merge With Spirituality

By Arjun Walla | Collective Evolution

Things have drastically changed since Galileo was placed under house arrest for his scientifically accurate views, simply because they threatened the beliefs put out by the Catholic Church at the time.

Today, things have changed, to an extent. We still have information that is heavily controlled by the global elite. This small group of people and the corporations they run practically control all aspects of our lives, from media and finance to healthcare, education, and more. Most importantly, they control all of the information we see and read, whilst labelling everything else as ‘fake news.’ It’s a good thing this isn’t considered a conspiracy theory anymore, because if it were, we’d be in big trouble. Eisenhower warned us about the potential of “misplaced” power that would severely undermine American democracy. JFK warned us about the fact that there are those who wish to capitalize on an announced need for increased security, and that it would be “seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of censorship and concealment.” Today, some historians estimate that the U.S. government classifies trillions of new pages of text every single year. You can read more about that topic, the Black Budget, and Special Access Programs (SAPs) here.

Things are different in the sense that the religious and spiritual communities are much more open to information and evidence that help us to understand the true nature of reality. Many religious and spiritual teachings are actually being confirmed by science, and that is evident by the list below. Take, for example, the Dalai Lama. He’s never been a stranger to science, and throughout his leadership he’s constantly advocated for the collusion of science and Eastern philosophy.

As Vice News points out:

This intersection of interests was manifest in the diversity of His audience, which was comprised of roughly 150 Tibetan bhikkhus, academics, and students who had piled into the conference center at Jawaharlal Nehru University to listen to the Dalai Lama and a panel of physicists and monastic scholars discuss the intersection of quantum physics and Madhyamaka Buddhist philosophy.

It’s truly amazing, especially in the fields of neuroscience and quantum physics, just how much knowledge our ancient cultures had regarding the true nature of reality. In many cases, modern day science is in fact catching up to this ancient knowledge. Personally, I believe science can take us far, but only so far, as we are burdened today by scientific dogmas and an industry plagued by corruption.

Non-Material Science

“Despite the unrivaled empirical success of quantum theory, the very suggestion that it may be literally true as a description of nature is still greeted with cynicism, incomprehension and even anger.” 

– T. Folger, “Quantum Shmantum”;Discover 22:37-43, 2001

Non-material science began to emerge at the turn of the nineteenth century when physicists started to explore the relationship between energy and the structure of matter. When they did this, the belief that a physical, Newtonian material universe was at the very heart of scientific knowledge was abandoned, and the realization that matter is nothing but an illusion replaced it. The very make-up of an atom is comprised of what we believe to be empty space. At this point, scientists began to recognize that everything in the universe is made out of energy, and this has been known in the scientific community for more than one hundred years.

“Some materialistically inclined scientists and philosophers refuse to acknowledge these phenomena because they are not consistent with their exclusive conception of the world. Rejection of post-materialist investigation of nature or refusal to publish strong science findings supporting a post-materialist framework are antithetical to the true spirit of scientific inquiry, which is that empirical data must always be adequately dealt with. Data which do not fit favored theories and beliefs cannot be dismissed a priori. Such dismissal is the realm of ideology, not science.”

 – Dr. Gary Schwartz, professor of psychology, medicine, neurology, psychiatry and surgery at the University of Arizona (source linked below)

Although scientific methods based upon materialistic philosophy have contributed much to our world, this philosophy has dominated the world of academia to the point that it has restricted the sciences from exploring other models and prevented the equal study of mind and spirituality. When we discovered phenomena that could not be explained by classical physics, it led to the development of quantum mechanics. This introduced the concepts of energy, frequency, emotions, feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and consciousness. It’s since been discovered that these concepts play a vital role in what we refer to as the physical material world today.

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”

– Nikola Tesla

The points made here summarize the problem with not recognizing, acknowledging, and examining phenomena that go past the borders of the physical material world. These points were co-authored by Dr. Gary Schwartz of the University of Arizona, Dr. Mario Beauregard of the University of Arizona, and Dr. Lisa Miller of Columbia University. It was presented at an international summit on post-materialist science, spirituality, and society.

As far as spirituality is concerned, the idea that you can control your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and use them to manifest your reality, is commonplace. The existence of “Chi” or “Prana” from ancient Eastern traditions both acknowledge this non-material world. Also known to some as the “Akash” or “Aether,” or that from which all comes. The primary source of creation in these realms is non-physical forces that our senses cannot identify, but modern day scientific methods can.

“The aakaash is not destructible, it is the primordial absolute substratum that creates cosmic matter and hence the properties of aakaash are not found in the material properties that are in a sense relative. The aakaash is the eternally existent, superfluid reality, for which creation and destruction are inapplicable.”

“And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied; “Of elements.” “Are there then four?” he asked. “Not four,” said Larchas,  “but five.” “And how can there be a fifth,”said Apollonius, “alongside of water and air and earth and fire?” “There is the ether,” replied the other, “which we must regard as the stuff of which gods are made; for just as all mortal creatures inhale the wire, so do immortal and divine natures inhale the ether.” “Am I,” said Appollonius, “to regard the universe as a living creature?” “Yes,” said the other.

These concepts are now at the heart of modern day quantum physics and neuroscience. Most of our pioneering scientists were actually mystics. Take Nikola Tesla, for example. He was heavily influenced by Vedic philosphy, and had correlations with Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902), who was one of the most famous and influential spiritual leaders of the philosophies of Vedanta (one of the six schools of Hindu philosophy, the term originally referred to the Upanishads, a collection of philosophical texts in Hinduism and yoga. He was the chief disciple of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and the founder of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission. He is a giant figure in the history of the Hindu reform movements.

“No point is more central than this, that empty space is not empty. It is the seat of the most violent physics”

The Mystery of Consciousness

“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.”  

The quote above is from Max Planck, a physicist who has been credited with originating quantum theory, which won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918.

“It was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.”

–  Eugene Wigner, theoretical physicist and mathematician. He received a share of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1963.

There are a number who share the same sentiment, and plenty of science showing that factors associated with consciousness do indeed have an effect on our physical material world, so much so that one wouldn’t really know where to start. This topic also branched off from the information listed above.

The quantum double slit experiment is a very popular experiment used to examine how consciousness and our physical material world are intertwined. It is a great example that documents how factors associated with consciousness and our physical material world are connected in some way.

One potential revelation of this experience is that “the observer creates the reality.” A paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Physics Essays by Dean Radin, PhD, explains how this experiment has been used multiple times to explore the role of consciousness in shaping the nature of physical reality. (source)

Then we have topics such as telepathy and psychokinesis that fit into this realm.

“Broadly speaking, although there are some differences, I think Buddhist philosophy and Quantum Mechanics can shake hands on their view of the world. We can see in these great examples the fruits of human thinking. Regardless of the admiration we feel for these great thinkers, we should not lose sight of the fact that they were human beings just as we are.”

– The Dalai Lama

Related CE Article: Buddhist & Leading Neuroscientists Agree, Consciousness Is Everywhere.

Below is a discussion about consciousness, what it is, and where it is, by Deepak Chopra. There are many such discussions on this topic, and personally I don’t really think consciousness can be completely defined or understood, but I think we are close. It’s amazing to see more science examine this concept given the fact that it was spoken and written about thousands of years ago.

Super-Human Abilities

It’s fascinating to consider just how many ancient teachings tell us that humans have the capacity to gain extraordinary powers through various techniques. Some of these techniques, known as siddhis in the yoga tradition (from the Sanskrit, meaning “perfection”), include meditation, static dancing, drumming, praying, fasting, psychedelics, and more.

In Buddhism, for example, the existence of advanced powers is readily acknowledged; in fact, Buddha expected his disciples to be able to attain these abilities, but also to not become distracted by them.

A professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies at the University of Michigan, Donald Lopez Jr., describes the many abilities ascribed to Buddha:

With this enlightenment, he was believed to possess all manner of supernormal powers, including full knowledge of each of his own past lives and those of other beings, the ability to know others’ thoughts, the ability to create doubles of himself, the ability to rise into the air and simultaneously shoot fire and water from his body. . . . Although he passed into nirvana at the age of eighty-one, he could have lived “for an aeon or until the end of the aeon” if only he had been asked to do so. (source)

This is correlated with modern day scientific study of ‘super powers.’

Russell Targ, for instance, is a physicist and author, a pioneer in the development of the laser and laser applications, and a cofounder of the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) investigation of psychic abilities in the 1970s and 1980s. SRI is a research and development think tank in Menlo Park, California. Called remote viewing, his work in the psychic area has been published in Nature, The Proceedings of the Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers (IEEE), and the Proceedings of the American Association the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

He recently gave an interesting talk tilted “Everything I Know About ESP.”

The point here is that these phenomena are studied at the highest levels of government, and they correlate directly with ancient stories stemming from various cultures of people with ‘superhuman’ abilities.

Health and Fasting

“Humans live on one-quarter of what they eat; on the other three-quarters lives their doctor.”

– Egyptian pyramid inscription, 3800 B.C.

Fasting is a tradition that was incorporated into many ancient cultures, from ancient Vedic traditions to Buddhist traditions and more. Fasting is not to be confused with starvation; it’s the process of restrain and control from the sensorial experience of eating. Many religions and spiritual teachers have urged others to fast in order to rejuvenate their mind, body, and soul. It’s no secret that fasting is one of the, if not the, oldest health interventions known to man.

This is probably one of the best examples of modern day science catching up to ancient Eastern mysticism. Within the past couple of years, an enormous amount of research has shed light on the health benefits of fasting. Studies have shown that, if done properly, it completely reverses type two diabetes, kills cancer, regenerates stem cells, regenerates the pancreas, repairs damaged DNA, and flushes toxins from the body.  It also helps to reverse multiple age related diseases and repair the brain.

Why Mind-Reading Is a Science, Not a Magic Trick

By Olivia Goldhill | The Telegraph

Electrical activity within the brain means that our thoughts can be read and understood .

Electrical activity within the brain means that our thoughts can be read and understood .

You may believe your thoughts are intangible and inscrutable, but all mental activity is communicated via electrical impulses. As our understanding of the brain increases, we’re increasingly able to decode our mental electrical signals, and translate our thoughts into automatic action.

A scalextric powered by the mind is the latest product to make use of our brainwaves. Stephen Sigurnjak, senior lecturer in electronics at the University of Central Lancashire, has built a scalextric where the cars are powered by the players’ level of concentration.

“You brain works off electrical activity, a bit like a computer,” he says. “As you concentrate on something, it fires neurons in the brain.”

Mind-control sclalextric headsets clip to the forehead to measure the level of mental activity. The thoughts are then organised into different frequency bands (the subconscious, for example, operates at a different level from conscious thoughts), the electric signal is processed by a computer and sent to a micro controller, which sends a corresponding level of voltage to power the car.

But when I put on the headset, the car stays still. Dr Sigurnjak says that it helps to visualise the alphabet or arithmetic problems but this makes no difference – apparently my brain signals remain tiny. The car starts to move when I listen to Dr Sigurnjak’s explanation but, once it’s started, it’s difficult to slow the car down. I try to stop thinking entirely – focusing on meditative breathing – and the car whizzes even faster, suggesting it takes an awful lot of brain power to try and shut down your thoughts.

Though the scalextric is fun, there are plans to use mind-control power in far more sophisticated ways. “If you’ve had an accident or are paralyzed then your brain could still work even if your body couldn’t. There’s quite a lot of research that goes into that area, and trying to control things just by thinking about them,” says Dr Sigurnjak. “The goal would be that you could think about turning left in a wheelchair and automatically turn left. And in the future you might be able to translate your thoughts. So you could think about what you want to write and a computer would type it out.”

Hug Hormone Oxytocin Boosts Bonding By Releasing Cannabis-Like Molecules

Hug Hormone Oxytocin Boosts Bonding By Releasing Cannabis-Like Molecules

By Justine Alford | iflscience

Whichever persona you prefer – the love molecule, cuddle chemical or hug hormone – oxytocin plays a big role in bonding. Spraying monkeys with the stuff, for example, has been found to positively affect their social behavior, making them more communicative and promoting interaction with others. Among many other things, weed also exerts similar effects on human behavior, but how exactly it does this has been hazy.

Now, a new study is offering us clues, and a link between these two very different substances. It turns out that oxytocin might make social interactions more rewarding and pleasurable by stimulating our own cannabinoid system. According to the research, it does this by triggering the release of another wonderfully nicknamed chemical, the “bliss molecule” anandamide, coined as such due to the fact that the brain receptors it activates lead to increased motivation and happiness.

This is the first time that this marijuana-like neurotransmitter has been shown to contribute to the reward of being social, and also offers us further insight into how oxytocin acts on the brain. Importantly, these findings could help us understand the mechanisms underlying certain social impairments, for example in those with autism, suggesting a possible avenue to explore for treatment.

Rewinding a little bit, endocannabinoids, like anandamide, are molecules our own body produces that act on the same system that cannabis does, binding to receptors on various cells throughout the body called the cannabinoid receptors. Previous work has found that the endocannabinoid system is involved in regulating neuronal signaling from the nucleus accumbens (NAc), a brain region shown to be critical for the effects of oxytocin on social reward.

Humans Have Messed With Earth So Much, Formal ‘Anthropocene’ Classification Needed: Scientists

Anthropocene Working Group honorary chair Colin Waters says “the geological reality of the Anthropocene is now clear.” (Photo: NASA)

By Andrea Germanos | Common Dreams

A group of scientists says that the scope of human impact on planet Earth is so great that the “Anthropocene” warrants a formal place the Geological Time Scale.

“Our findings suggest that the Anthropocene should follow on from the Holocene Epoch that has seen 11.7 thousand years of relative environmental stability, since the retreat of the last Ice Age, as we enter a more unstable and rapidly evolving phase of our planet’s history,” said Professor Jan Zalasiewicz from the University of Leicester’s School of Geography, Geology, and the Environment, in a statement released Monday.

The scientsts write:

We conclude that human impact has now grown to the point that it has changed the course of Earth history by at least many millennia, in terms of the anticipated long-term climate effects (e.g. postponement of the next glacial maximum: see Ganopolski et al., 2016; Clark et al., 2016), and in terms of the extensive and ongoing transformation of the biota, including a geologically unprecedented phase of human-mediated species invasions, and by species extinctions which are accelerating (Williams et al., 2015, 2016).

Defining characteristics of the period include

marked acceleration of rates of erosion and sedimentation; large-scale chemical perturbations to the cycles of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and other elements; the inception of significant change in global climate and sea level; and biotic changes including unprecedented levels of species invasions across the Earth. Many of these changes are geologically long-lasting, and some are effectively irreversible.

The findings from the international team led by the University of Leicester were presentedlast year at the International Geological Congress at Cape Town, South Africa, but were just published online in the journal Anthropocene.

Use of the word coined by Nobel Prize-winning scientist Paul Crutzen in 2000 is not new, but so far it’s been merely an informal description of the time period when human activity started significantly altering the planet. The Anthropocene Working Group (AWG), which comprises experts from a range of fields, has been tackling the issue of whether it should be a formal declaration since 2009.

According to the group, the answer is clear: the Anthropocene is real; it should be formalized; and it should be defined as an epoch (rather than another classification such as a sub-age or era). The group suggested that the new epoch’s “golden spike” (or physical reference point) that marks its start is the plutonium fallout from nuclear weapons tests in the 1950s.

Going forward, they  write, it seems likely that “human impacts will become increasingly significant.”

Getting the formal classification is not a done deal, as more analysis is needed, and a stamp of approval from the International Commission of Stratigraphy (ICS) could be years off. Still, says honorary chair of AWG, Colin Waters of the Geology Depart of the University of Leicister, “Whatever decision is ultimately made, the geological reality of the Anthropocene is now clear.”

Science Finally Proves that Meridians Exist

By Arjun Walia | Collective Evolution

It may seem counterintuitive, but there are many instances where science can actually hold us back from new discoveries and knowledge. Unfortunately, mainstream science is quick to discount anything which cannot be physically seen or felt, making notions like ‘energy points’ within the body seem like pure science fiction. But just because we can’t physically see something, does not mean it doesn’t exist. Nikola Tesla told us that “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena,  it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence,” and hundreds of scientists around the world have been taking on this task for several years. Within the next few decades, the examination of non-material science is going to skyrocket, and we all stand to benefit. What we know as science is definitely changing.

One example where non-material science could benefit the human race is healthcare, as a number of publications have revealed the importance of mind-body connections, and how our thoughts, emotions, feelings, the perception of the environment around us and more are all connected to the health of our body and regulation of our immune system. A study published in the Journal of Acupuncture and Meridian Studies titled “The Primo Vascular System as a New Anatomical System” is one that has recognized the importance of these concepts.

The medical community, for the most part, discounts healing therapies using this type of knowledge — knowledge which was present thousands of years ago in various ancient cultures. Acupuncture, a technique that manipulates the human meridian system in order to heal the body, has worked wonders for many people, yet our science has yet to explain how it does so. This is one example of many. Despite being unable to scientifically explain how these techniques function, few could deny that traditional Eastern medicine has proven successful for many people, or that it’s been crucial for curing various diseases. It has been used for thousands of years, and one has to assume that if it didn’t work, we would have abandoned the practice by now.

According to Western medicine, no known meridian system has a physical anatomical basis. The above study offers a different perspective, however:

In the early 1960s, only one hypothesis was proposed to explain the anatomical basis of the meridians. By using different experimental approaches during the past 10 years, the number of scientific papers that report the discovery of different anatomical and physiological evidence confirming the existence of an anatomical basis for the meridian system has increased. Morphological science is greatly challenged to offer a new biomedical theory that explains the possible existence of new bodily systems such as the primo vascular system (PVS). 

Researchers are calling it the Primo Vascular System, and, according to another paper published in the journal Evidence Based Complimentary and Alternative Medicine, “even today, the meridian system is still being investigated with well-known anatomical structures.”

This includes connective tissues called the fascia system, which are representative of the function of the meridian system being established and understood, as outlined by a study published in the journal Anatomical Record that mapped acupuncture points in serial gross anatomical sections through the human arm. It found “an 80% correspondence between the sites of acupuncture points and the location of intermuscular or intramuscular connective tissue planes in the postmortem tissue sections.” The study proposed that “the anatomical relationship of acupuncture points and meridians to connective tissue planes is relevant to acupuncture’s mechanism of action and suggests a potentially important integrative role for interstitial connective tissue.”

Korean researchers (of the first study cited above) believe the primo-vascular system is in fact the physical component of the Acupuncture Meridian System. They’ve also suggested that this system is involved in channelling the flow of energy and information relayed by biophotons (electromagnetic waves of light) and DNA. They propose that the anatomical basis for the PVS and this energy, also known as “Qi,” is “an electromagnetic wave that is involved very closely with the DNA in the PVS and that DNA “provides genetics information” and “functions as a store of information that can be obtained from the electromagnetic fields of the environment.”

They cite several studies showing that the PVS has been detected in various regions of the body:

The PVs have been found inside blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. The PVs inside lymph vessels freely flow in the lymph. The PVs and PNs flow in the third ventricle, fourth ventricle, cerebral aqueduct, and along the central canal of the spinal cord. The PVS has also been found on the arachnoid mater, cerebellum,  perinervium, and epinervium of the sciatic nerve. The PVs and PNs are present on the surfaces of the liver, stomach, small and large intestines, bladder, spleen, kidneys and omentum, abdominal cavity, hypodermal layer of the skin, superficial fascia, fat tissue, and cancer fascia. The PVs also enter internal organ tissues.

The researchers injected a special staining dye which coloured the meridians, revealing thin lines along these acupuncture points which were not present at non-acupuncture point sites (where there are no meridians). The researchers discovered that the meridian lines are not confined to the skin, but are in fact a concrete duct system through which liquid flows. They also learned that this liquid aggregates to form stem cells.

After all of their research (as seen in the publication), the scientists concluded that PVS allows communication between living organisms and the environment, and that it’s a system which spans throughout the entire body and plays a role in all biological life processes. They concluded that it receives signals in the form of electromagnetic waves from the environment, and internal signals from the body as well:

The PVS, which until now has been a missing body system, can explain many of the mysteries of life. The physical substrate for the meridian system is the missing point that can be used to combine the knowledge of ancient Chinese medicine and that of modern science into one successful unit.

It’s always interesting to look at ancient knowledge and teachings, particularly because so much has been and continues to be confirmed by modern day science. Every day, it seems, we discover why an ancient practice works on a scientific level; every day we validate something which previous generations simply understood to be valuable. And these ‘new’ discoveries of old knowledge support the notion that many more of these supposedly antiquated or pseudoscientific practices are in fact worthwhile.

The Unified Field Theory As Explained By Nassim Haramein

By Nathaniel Mauka | Waking Times

Nassim Haramein is a rogue physicist who thinks way outside the box. In fact, when he was just nine years old, traveling on a long bus ride to get home from school, when he realized that the Universe was just a bunch of “dots.” What came from an experience of astral projection in a small boy’s mind turned into the Theory of Everything, or what is commonly known as the Unified Field Theory.

An Elegant Discovery

Haramein’s discovery is elegant. In comparison to other theoretical physicists’ notions about what makes up “everything” it makes sense all the way out to the gargantuan real estate of our cosmos – in galaxies and quasars (baby galaxies just being formed), but also all the way down into the microcosmic level of quarks and planks. A planck being the energy discovered by Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck who won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1918 for discovering that all energy can be measured in universal constants.

The planck constant defines how particles and waves behave in the quantum field. This is an important concept, but let’s get back to Haramein’s discovery before we go much further.

A Boyhood Conundrum

In his boyhood class on geometry, his teacher told him that a point did not exist. This was called dimension zero. The teacher then wrote a line on the board – a series of dots, and said that this also did not exist. He called it dimension 1. Next, his teacher put four of these “non-existent” lines together to form a plane, and called this a plane. Of course, as you may have guessed, he called this dimension 2 and said that it still, did not exist.

Something that Exists from Nothing that Doesn’t Exist?

Finally, Haramein says when explaining his childhood memory, “my teacher gets to the third dimension – which is just a bunch of these planes put together to make a cube, and says, “now, this exists!” but I said to myself, it doesn’t matter how many planes you put together – 230 or a billion, you don’t get something that exists from a nothing that doesn’t exist!”

In brief, he was smart enough to question the assumption that even highly advanced theoretical physicists still try to work from today. This causes mathematical proofs that go on for pages and pages, but “at the end of the day” as Haramein explains, “they still don’t add up.”

In another lecture, Haramein explains that science must make sense all the way up and all the way down. When it doesn’t, the scientific community becomes manic – because there is no unity. They develop more grandiose equations to try to explain the simplicity of all things which, to him, became inordinately apparent. But, his view is seen as rogue and outlandish due to its simplicity. It creates unity instead of division.

The Paradox

When he says all the Universe is made up of dots “all the way up and all the way down,” he means that nothing ever existsbut “nothing” is all that exists. This was Haramein’s epiphany. The universe simply makes an infinite number of dots within dots within dots, within dots. The answer to the riddle was the exact opposite of what his teacher had told him when he was just a young boy in school.

The universe makes points of infinite division and assembles them on different scales to make everything we see. That includes the biggest things we can imagine like massive black holes ten billion times the size of our sun, all the way down to the smallest particle we have discovered thus far – the quantum particles below Planck’s scale. But there is no “smallest particle.” There are only infinitely smaller and infinitely larger dots.

These dots within dots within dots (or points in space-time) are what we experience as the material world, but this makes up less than 99.9% of our universe. Moreover, the space around these points is not empty– rather it’s a vacuum that’s filled with energy and only appears empty because it’s everywhere.

A Hong Kong University of Science and Technology study even found something to back up Haramein’s theoretical physics.

While studying astrophysics, they found that density distributions of the vast universe and the nature of the smallest particles are related – just like Haramein’s hunch that a true Theory of Everything must work all the way up and all the way down.

Scientists found a connection between those two aspects, and argued that our universe could be used as a particle physics ‘collider’ to study the high energy particle physics.

Only, we don’t need to keep colliding particles (CERN) in order to find another even smaller particle, because there is not a “smallest” particle, just more dots within dots within dots – infinitely.

Which brings us back to what was the smallest observable particle – the Planck –  a subatomic particle, (but there are even now particles below Planck’s scale in the V range – because, remember there are only infinite points in space/time), yet the Theory of Everything works here, too, because Haramein’s physics is explained whether we are talking about massive black holes or subatomic wave/particles.

In brief, there are only dots. That’s all that exists.

And that’s the Theory of Everything. Simple.
