The Chair Test


This involves an experimenter randomly choosing a chair from the seating plan of a large hall or auditorium that is scheduled to host a public event within the next few weeks. The event must not have any reserved seating. The event can be held in any auditorium anywhere in the world. The experimenter then asks a psychic to describe who will occupy that chair at the forthcoming event. The experimenter provides no details of the event or the auditorium; simply the date and the seat number.


On 6 January 1969, Dr Jule Eisenbud, a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Colorado Medical School, asked a Dutch psychic called Gerard Croiset to describe who would be sitting in a random chair he had selected for an event in Denver, Colorado on 23 January 1969 (as usual, only the date and seat number were provided to Croiset). The Dutchman, who was in Holland when he was contacted by Eisenbud, said that the man who took the seat would be male, five feet nine inches tall, with black hair brushed straight back, a gold tooth in his lower jaw, and a scar on his big toe. He would be an industrial scientist who often got his lab coat stained with a green chemical. On the appointed date, the man who sat in the random seat was exactly as described by Croiset, except he was taller by three quarters of an inch.


Is this a clear case of telepathy and precognition, of remote viewing of a future event? How else can the facts be explained?



The Enigma of Time


A skeptic might say that the chair test is so ridiculous that it must constitute a clear case of fraud, or of the experimenter inadvertently providing key details to the psychic, but let's assume that the experiment was conducted exactly as described without any impropriety or subconscious cuing of the psychic by the experimenter. 


What are the implications of "seeing the future"? If even one second of the future can be said to exist then there is no sufficient reason to deny that the whole of the future already exists. Moreover, this would have been true at any instant in the past. In other words, if the future already exists then there is no such thing as past, present and future and there is no such thing as becoming; everything has already become. Indeed, that has always been true. It is a return to the position of Parmenides that all change is illusory. Strangely, a number of modern philosophers and scientists subscribe to this position. Consider these quotations by Einstein:


1)    "People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion."


2)    Since there exist in this four-dimensional structure [space-time] no longer any sections which represent "now" objectively, the concepts of happening and becoming are indeed not completely suspended, but yet complicated. It appears therefore more natural to think of physical reality as a four dimensional existence, instead of, as hitherto, the evolution of a three dimensional existence.


3)    Time is only an illusion. The existence of the future follows from Minkowski`s World of space-time.


4)    There is no difference between the past and the future in the 4-dimensional space-time-world. The present is only an illusion.


If Einstein is right (and many physicists share his views although they are completely unable to address the philosophical consequences), then our lives are futile, pointless, and incomprehensible. We have no free will, there is no evolution or becoming, and everything has already happened and is cast in stone.


Michael Talbot, in The Holographic Universe, wrote: "[Loye] believes that reality is a giant hologram, and in it the past, present, and future are indeed fixed, at least up to a point. The rub is that it is not the only hologram. There are many such holographic entities floating in the timeless and spaceless waters of the implicate [universe], jostling and swimming around one another like so may amoebas. 'Such holographic worlds could also be visualized as parallel worlds, parallel universes,' says Loye. Thus, the future of any given holographic universe is predetermined, and when a person has a precognitive glimpse of the future, they are tuning into the future of that particular hologram only. But, like amoebas, these holograms also occasionally swallow and engulf each other, melding and bifurcating like the protoplasmic globs of energy that they really are. Sometimes these jostlings jolt us and are responsible for the premonitions that from time to time engulf us. And when we act upon a premonition and appear to alter the future, what we are really doing is leaping from one hologram to another. Loye calls these intra holographic leaps 'hololeaps' and feels that they are what provides us with out true capacity for both insight and freedom."


In order to solve the problem of apparent precognition - seeing and knowing the future - such theories introduce even more severe problems. If there are infinite parallel worlds, and infinite versions of "me", which is the real me? When I "hololeap" from one parallel world to another, all of my doppelgangers are presumably doing exactly the same. Could ten of us all hololeap to the same parallel world, the one that seems to have the best future? How would we all co-exist in the same world, or in the same mind? This type of thinking is absurd, incoherent and bordering on the crazy.


Let's be clear. The future hasn't happened. No one can see future events for the simple reason that they don't exist yet. How can you "see" non-existence? Nor do we have multiple selves busily transferring consciousness from one parallel world to another.


Physicist David Bohm expressed a far more sensible and logic alternative: "When people dream of accidents correctly and do not take the plane or ship, it is not the actual future that they were seeing. It was merely something in the present which is implicate and moving toward making that future. In fact, the future they saw differed from the actual future because they altered it. Therefore I think it's more plausible to say that, if these phenomena exist, there's an anticipation of the future in the implicate order in the present. As they used to say, coming events cast their shadow in the present. Their shadows are being cast deep in the implicate order."


In 1966 in Wales, a terrible disaster occurred in the mining village of Aberfan. 116 children died when a mountain of coal waste slipped, engulfing the nearby school. Apparently people all over Britain, and indeed in the wider world, had dreamt of the catastrophe. The first dreams began weeks earlier, and occurred with greater frequency in the lead up to the accident. Physicist Gerald Feinberg attempted to account for the Aberfan precognitions by saying that anyone who read a newspaper in the aftermath of the disaster could have 'produced a trace in his brain which went back before it happened, so that he could remember it before it took place.'


However, if this outlandish suggestion were accurate, why didn't it apply to every other great disaster, particularly earthquakes and tsunamis which have killed hundreds of thousands, and, above all, to 9/11, the most publicized disaster in history?  


Bohm was correct when he said, "There's an anticipation of the future in the implicate order in the present." The Aberfan situation was all too predictable. The coal waste had become the equivalent of snow, ready to create an avalanche. There may have been several small slippages previously. Someone in the village may have subconsciously predicted what was coming. Their subconscious became more insistent, flooding their dreams with dark images and forebodings. Others then tuned into that person's powerful dreams via the interconnected r = 0 domain. A "dream contagion" erupted. Sensitive dreamers all over the world started to have similar dreams. But none of it was precognition; it was all prediction. Earthquakes and tsunamis are of course much harder to predict, and 9/11 was a complete surprise to everyone other than those that planned it.


As for the "chair test", here is an entirely different interpretation that is remarkable in its own right but involves no precognition.


Step 1) The psychic practitioner tunes into the r = 0 domain where all mental phenomena are interconnected.


Step 2) He makes a connection with the mind of the experimenter and extracts all of the data present in the experimenter's thoughts concerning the forthcoming event.


Step 3) He scans the r = 0 domain for anyone whose thoughts contain information about the same event.


Step 4) When he locates a "match", he then places the seat number in the person's mind as a subconscious suggestion.


Step 5) The person goes to the event, and when he arrives in the auditorium, his subconscious prompts him to seek the chair number that has already been implanted in his subconscious.


Step 6) The person sits in the chair, the experimenter notes the person's description and realizes to his astonishment that the description exactly matches the one provided earlier by the psychic. He concludes that the psychic has seen the future.


Of course, the psychic didn't see the future: he constructed it, using information and processes available to him (and indeed everyone else) via the r = 0 domain.



The Power of the Subconscious



British illusionist Derren Brown, who does not accept the existence of paranormal phenomena of any kind, frequently uses subconscious suggestion in his act. A typical stunt he might perform is to draw a picture of a circle, place it in an envelope, seal it and then ask someone to "read his mind" and draw the picture he placed inside the envelope. However, he has pre-prepared the environment in which the performance is taking place. It is full of circular motifs and designs. When he speaks to the person whom he wishes to "mind read" he makes subtle circular gestures with his hands while he's speaking, and he subtly drops in references to circles. He might draw a circle in the air as he tells the other person to look into his eyes.


He has used verbal and visual cues to prime the other person's subconscious. The other person will definitely draw a picture of a circle because his subconscious is now full of that image. Nothing paranormal has happened. The person's subconscious has been manipulated, that's all. It happens to us all the time. Advertising is based on the manipulation of our subconscious.


Derren Brown's stunts are an example of local "psychic" priming i.e. clues in the local physical environment are used to prime the subject's psyche to obtain the desired result. 


But we are saying that non-local psychic priming is also possible, where one person, via the r = 0 domain, is able to directly prime the pre-conscious mind of another, as in the chair test.


It may be the case that many human beings once had non-local psychic abilities, but such people would, in past ages, have been those most likely to be accused of witchcraft and black magic, persecuted and killed. The genes for "psychic" powers would not have flourished in the gene pool thanks to religious fanaticism and fear of anything different. How many so-called witches were actually just psychically gifted women?

The more we illuminate our unconscious mind, the closer we get to God. If we could illuminate our entire unconscious we would become God. Gnosis is defined as the point of "no return": our human consciousness has expanded to the point at which, in one wondrous instant, we suddenly "get it", we get everything. All of the remaining unconscious material is instantly absorbed. Our mind has gone critical, like a fission reactor. A chain reaction is initiated that instantaneously bridges the gap between mortal and divine mind in one immense and irreversible mental "explosion" of enlightenment. The darkness of our ignorance is swept away in an overwhelming flash of illumination, like the moment of Biblical Creation: Let there be Light! It is our individual Omega Point, where we have traversed the path of knowledge from Alpha (human) to Omega (divine).


The path of "faith" is a false trail laid by the Demiurge to ensure that we never reach the true path of knowledge. Hasn't it always been obvious? - those who walk the path of faith are blind, ignorant fanatics. They think that one ancient book can "save" them. If I wanted to keep the human population permanently ignorant, what would I do? I would give them a single book that contained no knowledge and I would tell them that it was the infallible Word of God and that to disobey a single word was to court eternal damnation. Generation after generation would read this dumb, worthless book and learn nothing, "see" nothing and never advance towards divinity. They would be my permanent slaves.


Although our "thought cone" of consciousness is, for the vast majority of us in our normal lives, restricted to inside our own head, it is always accompanied by a "aureole" i.e. we all have access to an area around us that we can tune into; we can widen our thought cone to enter the minds of everything in our local vicinity. How do we become aware that someone nearby is staring at us? Without raising our head to look, we are suddenly seized by a sense that someone is studying us intently. We look up and, sure enough, we catch someone staring.


How could we possibly have known they were looking? It's because they have entered our mental space. They have mentally tapped us on the shoulder, so to speak. Their aureole has overlapped with ours. They are not doing anything sophisticated such as reading our thoughts. But they could if they put their mind to it. That's what an intuitive person does; he scans the other person's thoughts and rapidly acquires the "big picture" of who they are. He learns details of certain important events in their lives that dominate their consciousness. It comes to him effortlessly. He barely knows he's doing it.


An expert psychic can mind read over long distances and on a highly sophisticated basis. He can "read" people half a world away. He is able to extend the aureole of his thought cone to cover them and establish a powerful mental connection that gives full access to their thoughts. Such people are exceptionally rare.


Others who are likely to be able to establish strong remote connections are lovers, parents and their children, siblings and, especially, identical twins. Such connections will be even more likely in times of great stress and crisis when the unconscious dramatically opens up to signal extreme distress.


Consider another example of supposed precognition, formulated by Dr Dean Radin, which involves randomly showing either 'calm' or emotionally charged pictures to a subject.


The subject presses a mouse button, causing a computer to randomly select a photo from a large collection of emotionally significant and emotionally neutral photos, but, for five seconds, it shows only a blank screen. Then the selected photo is shown for three seconds before again being replaced by a blank screen for five seconds, and then a rest period of a further five seconds before the whole process begins again. The subject is wired up to record her physiological responses.  


What Radin discovered was that the subject reacted strongly to emotionally charged pictures before they were displayed. How could the subject know that an emotional picture was about to be shown rather than a calm one? Only, Radin reasoned, if the subject had foreknowledge.


Once again, this interpretation is erroneous. The experimental set-up ensures that the selected photo is ready to be displayed a full five seconds before it actually is. The photo is within the subject's mental aureole during that time and all the information it contains is already available to the subject via the non-local r = 0 domain. In other words, the subject isn't seeing the future but reacting to knowledge of the present. The subject has already "seen" the picture by the time it is formally displayed, so her prior emotional response is in no way surprising.


These examples show the power of the r = 0 domain. It provides the solutions for otherwise baffling phenomena.    



* * * * *



One of the most remarkable books ever written is one to which we have referred previously in our article The Right Brain God. The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind by Julian Jaynes asserts that consciousness is based on language and hence, before the existence of language, there was no such thing as consciousness! We do not typically consider non-human animals (none of which has anything that we would describe as a formal language) as conscious in any meaningful way. Nor can human babies be considered conscious before they learn language (hence why we have no conscious memories of being babies). If you want to know what an animal's mind is like then simply ponder a newly born baby's mind. The baby does things, and seems curious and so on, yet nothing conscious is taking place in its mind. Pure instinct is in control.


Jaynes probably wasn't aware that his hypothesis was proposed by Friedrich Nietzsche long before. Nietzsche argued that consciousness is proportionate to the capacity for communication, which in turn is proportionate to the need for communication. "Consciousness is really only a net of communication between human beings; it is only as such that it had to develop; a solitary human being who lived like a beast of prey would not have needed it…In brief, the development of language and the development of consciousness go hand in hand…It was only as a social animal that man acquired self-consciousness - which he is still in the process of doing, more and more."


Hegel was the first to understand that self-consciousness - the ability to reflect on one's own consciousness - could only arise from the interaction of at least two separate consciousnesses. Nietzsche realized that communication was therefore necessary between the two consciousnesses, and communication relies on some kind of language common to both consciousnesses.


Jaynes argued that civilization and consciousness are linked. Increasing civilization implies increased communication, hence increased sophistication of language. As language grows more complex, so does consciousness. But given that human language is now largely fixed, language can no longer offer any increase in human consciousness. Now the task of humanity is to throw light on the vast unconscious and bring it into consciousness. That is an entirely different endeavour from learning language. It requires a different society and mindset. It needs a Spiritual Humanity, a Humanity of the Psyche, rather than a consumerist and materialistic humanity where consciousness revolves around satisfying petty needs of survival and comfort.


Before the advent of language, humans were not introspective and self-reflective. They did not plan, they simply acted. Jaynes's radical hypothesis is that they were told what to do by the "gods". They heard voices in their heads giving them simple, forceful orders: do this, do that, do the other. This, Jaynes suggested, is the same mechanism that underlies the "voices" heard by mystics such as Joan of Arc and by epileptics and schizophrenics. He said that the "gods" were what we now refer to as hallucinations. It has been suggested that Moses, Jesus and Mohammed may have heard such voices in their heads and wrongly attributed them to God.


Jaynes proposed that pre-conscious humanity was guided by what he called the bicameral mind. Bicameral means "two-chambered" and refers to the fact that the human brain is divided into two hemispheres. Jaynes argued that human nature was "split in two, an executive part called a god, and a follower part called a man. Neither part was conscious." This bicameral mind was most evident and effective in times of stress.


Jaynes asserted that schizophrenia can be considered "a vestige of bicamerality, a relapse to the bicameral mind." There was a time therefore when all human beings were effectively schizophrenic, but because this was "normal" it wasn't a problem.


Jaynes said, "Another advantage of schizophrenia, perhaps evolutionary, is tirelessness…they show less fatigue than normal persons and are capable of tremendous feats of endurance…They may move about day and night, or work endlessly without any sign of being tired…This suggests that much fatigue is a product of the subjective conscious mind, and that bicameral man, building the pyramids of Egypt, the ziggurats of Sumer, or the gigantic temples at Teotihuacan with only hand labor, could do so far more easily than could conscious self-reflective men…A further thing that schizophrenics do 'better' than the rest of us…is simple sensory perception. They are more alert to visual stimuli…Indeed, schizophrenics are almost drowning in sensory data."


The extraordinary implication of this statement is that if we could switch off our consciousness, we would massively increase our physical capabilities.


On the subject of modern schizophrenia, Jaynes concluded, "In effect, [the schizophrenic] is a mind bared to his environment, waiting on gods in a godless world."


Jaynes also made the remarkable suggestion that we are inclined to seek gods in order that they can give us orders and remove from us the responsibility for taking decisions. This is why we are obsessed with the "successful": with the super-rich, celebrities, the leaders of society. They are the "gods" we lost when the bicameral mind eventually broke down and was replaced by consciousness. Deep down, we have a craving for the inner voice of the gods to command us. In other words, not only are we NOT expanding our consciousness, many of us actually have a strong desire to become LESS conscious and revert to our bicameral heritage.


The Illuminati are in the business of expanding human consciousness to divine levels and that necessitates the elimination of the bicameral tendency in humanity i.e. the desire to be dictated to by others. No human who wants to become God can have any desire to slavishly obey any other person. The Illuminati seek to build a community of gods where none command and none obey, where the community cooperates intelligently for the good of all and to the harm of none. We promote independence of mind and self-sufficiency so that no one is reliant on others.


As Jaynes pointed out, speech areas are all located in the left hemisphere of the brain (for right-handed people). He said, "The language of men was involved with only one hemisphere to leave the other free for the language of gods." He asked the question, "Is it possible to think of the two hemispheres of the brain almost as two individuals, only one of which can speak, while both can listen and both understand?"


In the bicameral age, the "gods" authorized our actions. Now we must authorize them ourselves.


The phenomenon of the lynch mob, of hysterical crowds, of intoxicated audiences at gigs, sports events, political rallies could be interpreted as bicameral in nature: one person or a small group of people (the "gods") lead, and everyone else, with unswerving devotion, follows. People are prone to emotional contagion. They can be "infected" by others and swept up into a state nothing like their "normal" selves. Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany had an uncanny gift for making the people bend to his will. He became the embodied Will of the German people. Such spellbinding orators can prove to be gods or devils.


Given that our conscious minds are embedded in the "physical consciousness" of the r > 0 domain, our best chance of having experiences in the r = 0 domain is when we disengage from normal mental states, such as in dreams or meditation, after extreme exertion or stress, after taking certain drugs etc.


In ancient Greece, paranoia (from para & nous) meant, literally, having another's mind alongside one's own. It represented a deterioration of consciousness. People did not think for themselves. Rather, thoughts were given to them.


Paranormal and psychic phenomena are based on the bicameral mind. Hypnosis relies on it. Conditions such as schizophrenia and Tourette's Syndrome derive from it. A "bipolar" person is someone who, in their manic phase, identifies with God and believes himself capable of whatever he puts his mind to; in his depressed phase he is a helpless being waiting for orders that never come. Music and poetry are, at root, bicameral phenomena. When artists talk of needing their "muse", they mean the inspiration afforded by the right-brain gods. Ancient oracles were bicameral. Many of the most prominent religious leaders were bicameral. The bicameral paradigm explains a vast range of phenomena that no other paradigm can account for.


If we regard the left-brain as the thesis (humanity) and the right brain as the antithesis (the gods) then the breathtaking synthesis is a single brain unifying the human and the divine. We will have achieved the ineffable, infinitely sublime and perfect objective of becoming God. His thoughts will be ours and ours his.






Paranormal Phenomena




Jung's concept of synchronicity - an acausal connecting principle in nature that creates meaningful coincidences - has captured the imagination of many people, but often seems too bizarre to have any foundation in reality. If it is outside the domain of cause and effect then how can it work? What conceivable mechanism could sustain it? 


An illustrative story related by Jung concerns a wife who once told him that when her mother and grandmother died, a number of birds gathered outside the windows on each occasion. The wife's husband was one of Jung's patients, and Jung suspected that he had heart problems. He referred him to a specialist who found nothing wrong. Unfortunately, on the way home, the man collapsed and died. Those taking his body back to his house were met by his wife. She had become very concerned about her husband because…a flock of birds had alighted on their house!


This can be explained in the following way. The wife had a strong, subconscious psychic link with her husband. When he died, her subconscious knew it instantly via r = 0 non-locality, but then had to communicate the information to her conscious mind. Knowing the significance of birds to the wife's psyche, her subconscious scanned the r = 0 domain for the presence of a nearby bird, found one and mentally "summoned" it. Other birds followed it. In other words, these events were not acausal at all. Cause and effect took place via the subconscious r = 0 domain rather than the normal conscious r > 0 domain. That's all that synchronicity is: the r = 0 subconscious equivalent of the r > 0 conscious process of cause and effect. This is a precise definition. It is "mysterious" only insofar as the subconscious domain is mysterious.


Another example Jung gives is that of a fiercely rational female patient. She was resistant to Jung's approach to resolving her issues, seeing it all as crazy mumbo jumbo. Eventually, she told Jung of a powerful dream concerning a scarab beetle, which Jung knew was an ancient Egyptian symbol of rebirth. Jung immediately speculated that the woman's unconscious mind was appealing to her conscious mind to change her rigid mentality and be reborn. He was about to announce this when he heard a tapping on the window. When he looked up, he saw a gold-green scarab! He opened the window and let it fly into the room as he started interpreting the woman's dream for her. The woman was so astonished by what had just happened that she started to drop her overly rationalistic tendencies and, from then on, her sessions with Jung were far more productive.


Jung regarded this as an acausal meaningful coincidence. In fact, the woman's subconscious was trying to communicate a message to her, and Jung understood what the message was. Either his subconscious, or the patient's, was able to recognize that a scarab was nearby, and to summon it to the window. Cause and effect via r = 0; not acausality via r > 0.


The r = 0 domain is that of the unconscious mind and non-locality. The r > 0 domain is that of the conscious mind and locality. If you want to expand your consciousness and embrace an existence beyond this one, you have to tune into r = 0. Like the overly rational female patient of Jung, scientists have rejected anything beyond the r > 0 domain. Once you accept that synchronicity is a real phenomenon of cause and effect in the non-local and unconscious domain then all sorts of mysterious phenomena become much easier to understand.


The r >= 0 framework is astoundingly simple to understand. The r > 0 aspect is dimensional, physical, material, located in space and time and subject to scientific cause and effect. Naturally, the conscious mind is focused on the r > 0 domain for survival reasons.


The r = 0 aspect is dimensionless, mental, spiritual and not located in space and time. It is subject to mental cause and effect. The unconscious mind is focused on the r = 0 domain for "afterlife" survival. In the r = 0 domain, we can enjoy the feeling of oneness with the entire universe.


The quantum world, being based on particles so small they are almost dimensionless points, is the bridge between r = 0 and r > 0, between mind and matter. The meaning of our lives resides within the r = 0 domain, the one with which we have the least direct contact. Such is the irony of life. Nevertheless, it is in the r = 0 domain that we will find our authentic self.



Out-of-body experiences (OBEs)


With OBEs, it could be said that the person has not left their body at all. Rather, what has happened is that they have opened up their mind to the r = 0 domain, and they are absorbing data from everything in their immediate vicinity. Because they are receiving different data from what they normally get (in particular they are collecting data from seemingly impossible locations), the brain becomes confused and, in some cases, tries to account for the discrepancy by imagining that the mind has moved outside the confines of the body. It constructs a coherent image of what it is witnessing and this corresponds to what is known as an OBE. But, in fact, it has nothing to do with anything leaving and existing outside the body. Rather, it is a case of the mind expanding beyond its normal boundaries and creating a different relationship with the body in which it seems to have gone beyond the confines of the body.


Eileen Garrett, a medium, was reported to be able to go into a trance and project out of her body, allowing her to "visit" remote locations and observe them. While she was in her apartment in New York, she apparently made a pre-arranged visit to a doctor's office in Iceland. The doctor had placed a number of objects on a table for her to identify, and this she did successfully. She also repeated verbatim a passage from the book he was reading before she "arrived", and observed a bandage on the doctor's head. The doctor confirmed all of this and also revealed that he had sensed Mrs Garrett's presence. Note that he did not see any sort of "body".


This episode is consistent with our previous account of an OBE: a person's mind can remotely access other locations and use all of the r = 0 data available, including the thoughts and sense-data of any person at the distant location, to construct a mental picture of what is present at the other place.


The CIA's "remote viewing" program may be considered an application of the OBE concept. The "viewer" is expected to supply information about remote locations simply by looking at pictures and information regarding the target.


In another well-known example of the OBE phenomenon, a man was on a ship caught in an Atlantic storm. During the night, he had a dream in which his wife visited him in her nightdress and gave him a reassuring kiss. Although he made no mention of this dream, his cabin-mate teased him the next morning about his midnight visit from a lady. When he got home, his wife asked him if he had received her kiss. She said she was worried by reports of the severity of the storm and wanted to know if he was safe. She had visualized flying over the ocean to find his ship and his cabin. She said a man on the upper berth looked straight at her. She was able to provide accurate details of the man and the cabin.


In this instance, the cabin-mate reportedly saw the woman even though she wasn't physically there. Given that it was midnight and the cabin was presumably in complete darkness, perhaps he meant that he sensed her rather than saw her. If he did see her then it could be argued that he was tuning into her subjective image of herself rather than an objective representative in physical space.


The important point is that in the r >= 0 paradigm, no one needs a detachable second body that travels immense distances in a short time through the air. Rather, their mind is able to expand and enter into other parts of the r = 0 mental domain where they can retrieve data impossible to access through any conventional means.



Near Death Experiences (NDEs)


A special type of out-of-body experience is the so-called near death experience. Jung, following a near fatal heart attack, described it as follows: "I found myself in an utterly transformed state. It was as if I were in an ecstasy. I felt as though I were floating in space, as though I were safe in the womb of the universe - in a tremendous void, but filled with the highest possible feeling of happiness…I can describe the experience only as the ecstasy of a non-temporal state in which present, past and future are one. Everything that happens in time had been brought together in a concrete whole. I was interwoven into an indescribable whole and yet observed it with complete objectivity."


This might be said to be a description of complete immersion in the r = 0 domain.


Jung gives further details of his experience. He mentions a sensation of floating away from the earth and viewing it from an increasingly great distance and experiencing "the whole phantasmagoria of earthly experience" being stripped from him. He reaches a door of a temple wreathed in flames then enters a hall where he meets "people to whom I belong in reality". Finally, he finds himself at peace in a serene and beautiful garden.


A typical NDE involves the perception of the separation of an immaterial component from the physical body. The body can often be seen being left behind. The immaterial self then seems to travel, perhaps in the ordinary world where people and events may be glimpsed distantly, or perhaps to an unfamiliar world as in the case of Jung. The return to earthly life and consciousness can be perceived as unwelcome and traumatic; the person often wishes to remain in his new realm.


Other elements that often feature in NDEs are of passing through a doorway or venturing into a tunnel with a great light at the end, of the enormous expansion of the consciousness, of a sense of undergoing a "true awakening", of encountering a figure of great awe (like a person's image of their God), or of meeting a discarnate loved one who has previously died and who will help them with their transition. 


The moment of death, if accurately preconfigured by NDEs, may turn out to be the greatest moment of our lives where we undergo a wondrous transformation. Our consciousness alters and expands in an inexpressibly joyous way.


In terms of Illuminism, NDEs are regarded as glimpses of what happens when a consciousness moves decisively towards immersion in the r = 0 domain. The bright, transcendent light at the end of a tunnel that features in so many NDE accounts is regarded as the r = 0 domain itself, as the light of Abraxas drawing everything towards it. The tunnel is how we perceive the mysterious passageway that connects the r > 0 domain with the r = 0 domain.





Medical science dismisses homeopathy as bogus pseudo science. After all, if you dilute the active ingredient until there is not a single drop left in the "medicine", how could it possibly cure you? The r = 0 domain provides the answer. Because the medicine was once in physical contact with the active ingredient, it remains linked to it via the r = 0 domain, just as two quantum particles can remain correlated even though they are separated by enormous distances. So, even though there is no active ingredient present in the r > 0 domain, knowledge of its effects are present in the r = 0 mental domain. Hence it is the mental rather than physical presence of the ingredient that allows it to cure the patient. In other words, it is the biochemical information that is crucial with regard to any medicine. That information is obviously present if the medicine is physically present, but the same information is also available mentally via the r = 0 domain.


We are making no claim that homeopathic remedies are as effective as approved medicines, but nor do we agree with conventional science that they have no possible therapeutic value, and no possible effect. Their effects take place via the non-local r = 0 domain rather than the scientific r > 0 domain



Faith Healing


In a TV documentary, an actor was asked to play the part of a faith healer and to enter into a competition with a "real" faith healer. As it happened, the faith healer got better results than a control group that had no access to a healer, but, remarkably, the actor playing the part of a faith healer got even better results. Doctors with an excellent "bedside" manner are also known to achieve better results than doctors with poor social skills.


Many illnesses are actually caused by stress and anxiety in one way or another; they are psychosomatic. A healer who can relax a patient, ease their worries and fill them with optimism can achieve remarkable effects. It could be interpreted that the two have made a psychic connection with each other and the healer's healthy attitude has been transferred to the patient.    





This is a form of alternative medicine whereby a person can send a blood or urine sample to a radionics practitioner and be diagnosed and treated in their absence. How could this possibly work? The sample that the patient provides comes from his body and remains linked to it via the r = 0 domain. So, treating the person's sample is, in effect, the same as treating the actual person. A cure applied to the sample will be transmitted to the person's actual body. (Voodoo dolls operate by a similar principle, but in a malignant rather than benign way.) In other words, the r = 0 domain makes "remote" cures (or curses) possible i.e. as long as the patient has provided a sample he does not have to be in attendance.





This is the ability to move objects via mental concentration. What is happening in this case is that a gifted psychic is establishing a mental connection with an object via the r = 0 domain then converting psychic energy into physical energy in order to move it. Levitation is also a form of psychokinesis.





James Lovelock hypothesized that the lithosphere (the solid outer portion of the earth), the biosphere (containing all living plants and animals) and the atmosphere had to be considered as a single integrated system rather than three independent parts of a machine. It was, so to speak, a living entity or organism whose purpose was to ensure the maintenance of the conditions necessary for life. He named it Gaia in honour of the ancient Greek Goddess of the Earth.


The Gaia hypothesis attributes, in effect, a form of mind to earth and gives it a teleological objective - to support the existence of life in the biosphere. It's possible to go even further than Lovelock and say that its purpose is to assist the evolution of intelligent minds on earth, and, in fact, to maximise the intelligence of life on earth. If humanity proved detrimental to the planet then it would have demonstrated a fatal flaw in humanity's intelligence and Gaia would then take steps to eliminate humanity to pave the way for a superior terrestrial intelligence.


The Gaia hypothesis is really just a modern version of animism, the position that nature is alive with spirits in trees, rivers, mountains, caves etc.


Of course, if mind-like qualities can be ascribed to the earth, then why not to every planet, moon, sun, black hole, supermassive black hole etc in the whole universe i.e. why would earth be alone as a cosmic "organism"?


Lovelock's hypothesis is fully consistent with the notion of the universe as a brain (r > 0) that supports mental activity (r = 0). When any cosmic object gets the chance to help in the evolution of intelligent life then, like the earth, it seizes it. It sets about trying to create the conditions in which life will appear.


If the Gaia hypothesis is true then there is no sufficient reason to suppose that the universe is not a Greater Gaia, with the purpose of producing the conditions necessary for the appearance of life in the cosmos. This, of course, is precisely the position that has always been advocated by the Illuminati. The universe is the brain (r > 0) of the cosmic mind (r = 0). The mind operates through the brain to maximize the expression of mind in the physical universe. Intelligent life is the optimal manifestation of mind.



Ley Lines


If the Gaia hypothesis is correct then it would be useful for the planet to have "hotspots" and energy paths located in the upper lithosphere to permit rapid responses to changes and to create a network of control. The energy paths are equivalent to what Alfred Watkins named Ley lines. He noted that many ancient sites, mounds, stone circles, churches etc seemed to be lined up along such lines. Given that they are associated with the power of the earth, this would not be surprising. They have an aura denied to alternative locations. The Chinese call Ley lines "dragon paths" and they are said to carry mystical energy.



Animal Supersense


A recent report said that a colony of toads vanished from a lake in Italy five days before a major earthquake. Scientists speculated that the toads must have detected subtle environmental changes that foreshadowed an earthquake, which would be followed by violent tremors that might threaten the lake by causing dangerous mudslides. Days after the earthquake, the toads returned to their breeding pool to resume spawning. 


The scientists believe that the toads might be able to detect pre-seismic indicators e.g. certain gases from the ground, such as radioactive radon, or changes in the ionosphere. It could be possible to use animals as an earthquake early warning system.  


Homing pigeons navigate over long distance by using Earth's magnetic field.


Perhaps animals, unlike humans, are attuned to the mind of Gaia and possibly even guided by it in the manner of ants being controlled by the "will" of the colony.





No one has ever offered any credible explanation of why planetary positions should in any way influence human affairs. The answer lies in the fact that our solar system is part of the universal brain. As the planets alter position with respect to each other, it is as if different regions of the solar system's brain are being activated. Corresponding to different brain activations, are different mind activations in the r = 0 domain. The two main influences on a newly born baby are his parents' genes and his "local" environment. But, in the r >= 0 paradigm, he also has a non-local environment to influence him. This non-local environment is most strongly set by the prevailing planetary configuration (including sun and moon). In other words, different configurations of the planets are associated with different mental configurations of our solar system. Every day is associated with a different pattern of the planets, hence a different non-local mental configuration. So, we might expect that everyone born on a certain day in a certain location will share a hitherto unsuspected non-local connection. Certain things may be true of them that are not true of people born, say, three or six months later.


Studies performed by Michel Gauquelin revealed that there was a prominent bias amongst members of the French Academy of Medicine to have astrological birth times associated with the planets Saturn and Mars having just risen or culminated in the sky. A study of a control group of randomly chosen ordinary people showed no such bias. When a second group of physicians was studied, the original bias reappeared.


Further studies suggested that Jupiter was dominant for famous actors, politicians and journalists. For writers, the moon was in culmination. Mars was dominant for managers of large industrial firms. But these observations only applied to highly successful people in their fields, not to others in the same field. So, in the case of actors, perhaps when Jupiter is dominant, the "mind" of the universe is in a configuration conducive to the development of certain traits particularly valuable to the acting profession. Anyone born at a different time will not derive the same benefits and not enjoy the apparently decisive advantage, hence will not succeed in that field.


Hans Eysenck discovered that odd-numbered birth signs tended to be associated with extraversion and even-numbered with introversion. He observed that those born under the 'water signs' of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces tended to be emotional and neurotic. He concluded his studies with the statement, "The astrological hypotheses tested have not been disconfirmed."



The Aleph


In kabbalistic thinking, the "aleph" is a transcendent point in space and time that contains all other points in space and time. It is the "primordial one that contains all numbers." If the aleph were instead defined as a dimensionless point outside space and time that is linked to all points in space and time then it would be the same as the r = 0 singularity, the Monad of Pythagoras and Illuminism.

The r > 0 domain is unable to deal with the two "boundary conditions": zero and infinity. The r = 0 domain, on the other hand, is the complementary domain founded on these two boundary conditions. Science has gone as far as possible within the r > 0 domain. It can go no further until it acknowledges the r = 0 domain. The r >= 0 domain caters for zero, infinity and everything that lies between. In a sense, the r = 0 domain stands at either end of the r > 0 domain. The "flip side" of the r = 0 domain is the r = infinity domain. Zero and infinity are inextricably linked.   

Reality is a synthesis of r = 0 (thesis) and r > 0 (antithesis). Everything is explained by r >= 0. It is the Grand Unified Theory of everything. There is nothing it lacks and nothing that could be used to enhance or expand it. It is complete, whole, the totality, the Absolute.


Philosopher Michael Lockwood is a proponent of "naturalistic panpsychism". He suggests that one of the fundamental properties of the universe is a self-reflective sense of what he labels "what it's likeness". This, he argues, would permit a materialistic universe to contain the seemingly incompatible property of subjective mind because "what it's likeness" is built into the fabric of matter. Awareness is fundamental to the material universe in this hypothesis.


This is, in effect, the same as Illuminism, except Illuminism explains it far more explicitly and clearly. Everywhere, the r =0 dimensionless domain is in contact with the r > 0 dimensional domain, hence mind is omnipresent in the material universe. Every physical thing can be said to have the quality of "mind". Mind and matter, like zero and infinity, are indissolubly linked. In fact mind could be said to be a reflection of zero and infinity, while matter is everything that lies in between. Matter is bounded on either side (zero and infinity) by mind. Matter is the filling in the mind sandwich.


Scientific phenomena take place according to the laws of science based on the principle of locality i.e. things can only influence other things in their local vicinity. Paranormal phenomena take place according to mental laws based on the principle of non-locality i.e. things can influence other things over any distance, even infinite distances. Correlated quantum particles use non-locality and, indeed, quantum particles in general are so small and so close to being dimensionless points that it's hard to distinguish mind from matter in the quantum world, hence the infinitely strange behaviour of quantum particles.


This really is it. This is the final answer. Nothing lies beyond r >= 0. It encapsulates everything from nothing to infinity, all mind and all matter, the dimensionless and the dimensional, the mundane and the divine, the scientific, religious, philosophical and artistic, the dialectical evolution of the cosmos from complete potential to absolute actualization. Nothing else is possible. This is the wisdom of the Illuminati, revealed by a combination of reason, the guidance of the Phosters (the divine Illuminators), and the experience of gnosis by the ten greatest Grand Masters of the Illuminati: Solomon, Pythagoras, Heraclitus, Empedocles, Hypatia, Leibniz, Weishaupt, Goethe, Hegel, and, above all, Simon Magus, the true Christ.


The Illuminati would have no difficulty in describing themselves as Christians if "Christ" referred to the Magus, the agent of Abraxas, rather than to the Jewish carpenter Yehoshua ben Yosef, archon of the Demiurge. Simon Magus delivered the true gospel - that we can all be Christs, and part of a glorious community of gods. Yehoshua ben Yosef delivered the opposite message, the wicked teaching of the Antichrist: that he alone is "Christ" and we cannot be saved without falling on our faces to worship him, without making ourselves his slaves.


Which do you think is the true message of love, compassion, hope and the maximization of human potential?


Join the ranks of the Enlightened, the army of light. Reject the false prophets and everyone who says that we, the human race, are anything other than gods in the making. Those of us who have transcended the dark grip of the Demiurge know the truth: we can all become God. We do not need to worship anyone because we are all blessed. The Divine Spark is within us all. It's time to make that infinitely precious spark burn bright. Physics tells us that we are made of stardust. Now it's time for us to shine like the stars, illuminating the entire cosmos.


There is no "nothing". What scientists vaguely refer to as "nothing" in Big Bang theory is actually dimensionless reality. Because dimensionless cannot be detected by our physical senses, the mind of the scientist has concluded that it doesn't exist and is therefore nothing, even though the mind of the scientist is itself something that cannot be detected physically. What an irony. Scientists have used their minds to abolish the concept of minds!



Morphic Resonance


In the 1920s, Harvard psychologist William McDougall put specially bred laboratory rats into a water tank with two exits, one brightly lit but which delivered an electric shock, forcing the rat back into the water, the other a dimly lit escape route. On every alternate test, the dim gangway became the brightly lit one, and vice versa. The task of the rats was to learn to always swim to the non-illuminated exit. The first batch of rats typically took about 200 attempts on average before learning the solution. Later generations (bred from the fist batch) got better and better at the task. By the time of the final experiments about 15 years later, rats were taking an average of 20 attempts. So, had each new generation somehow genetically inherited knowledge of the task from previous generations?


A group in Australia replicating the experiment made the remarkable discovery that the first batch of rats they tested was significantly better than the first batch of Harvard rats. They then made an even more extraordinary discovery: a new batch of rats that had no genetic connection with the first batch were just as good at the task as the offspring of the first batch, and all were better than the original batch. In other words, genetic inheritance was proved to be irrelevant. But, in that case, how were successive generations of rats getting better and better at the task? If not inherited knowledge then what mechanism was helping them to learn the right answer much more quickly?


Many years later, these baffling experiments fascinated Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist from Cambridge University. He observed, "If rats are taught a new trick in Manchester then rats of the same breed all over the world should show a tendency to learn the same trick more rapidly, even in the absence of any known type of physical connection or communication. The greater the number of rats that learn it, the easier it should become for their successors."


It has been proposed that the same is true of human beings. Today's generation of children tend to have a higher average IQ than that of their grandparents. Of course, there are problems with this. Many 5th century Athenians, or Florentine citizens of the Renaissance, or Edinburgh citizens of the Enlightenment were arguably more intelligent than most people alive today. How many Einsteins, Nietzsches, Hegels are there today? How come we don't all understand advanced science and philosophy given that all the hard work has already been done? Arguably grandchildren are cleverer than their grandparents because they got a better basic education, had a better diet, had better living conditions and better technological help etc.


If morphic resonance does apply to humans, it is probably in the context of simple tasks. If it were true of more complex tasks, we'd all be geniuses by now because we would have acquired the wisdom of humanity's finest minds. Manifestly, we haven't. In fact, human stupidity seems to be growing. We live in a dumbocracy of dumbed-down, soundbite, celebrity culture where people have an attention span of mere seconds. 


Sheldrake designed a clever experiment involving nursery rhymes. He selected three similar Japanese rhymes. One was actually a meaningless jumble, the second was a new rhyme and the last was a traditional rhyme, familiar to many generations of Japanese children. Sheldrake himself did not know which was which. English schoolchildren with no knowledge of Japanese were asked to learn the rhymes. They were able to learn one much more rapidly than the others: the traditional rhyme. This was consistent with the idea that it is much easier to learn simple material that has already been learned by others.


There's a similarity between meme transmission and morphic resonance. On the internet, the vast majority of things that go "viral" are weird, gross, funny, or connected with celebrities. They are short, snappy, and high impact for people with a short attention span looking for instant emotional gratification. You certainly wouldn't find difficult philosophy, mathematics, science or theology going viral. The human race, for all its pretensions, cannot be considered a truly intelligent species. We have the potential to be gods, but we seem to prefer to model ourselves on laughing jackasses, or, when we're full of hate, on jackals.


Just as memes are never "clever", nor does morphic resonance in the humansphere support high intelligence. Memes and morphic resonance when applied to the human situation are immensely negative. They are unrelentingly trivial, materialistic and anti-intellectual. They reflect humanity as the clown princes of the cosmos rather than the coming gods. They are a resistance that must be overcome. They hold us back, they hold us down, and they make perpetual victims of us. The Elite snigger when they see the vast majority of the human race transfixed by Junk Addiction. While we're looking at the latest freakshow on YouTube, we're certainly not advancing the cause of overthrowing the Old World Order. 


In the Preface to the 2009 edition of A New Science of Life, Sheldrake says, "What happens depends on what has happened before. Memory is inherent in nature. It is transmitted by a process called morphic resonance, and works through fields called morphic fields…Morphic resonance provides [a] means by which the inheritance of acquired characteristics can occur…Morphogenetic fields [are] the organizing fields of molecules, crystals, cells, tissues and indeed all biological systems…Whereas morphogenetic fields influence form, behavioural fields influence behaviour. The organizing fields of social groups such as flocks of birds, schools of fish and colonies of termites are called social fields. All these kinds of fields are morphic fields. All morphic fields have an inherent memory given by morphic resonance…I also suggest that our own memories depend on morphic resonance rather than on material traces stored in our brains…Morphic fields must in some way interact directly or indirectly with electromagnetic and quantum fields, imposing patterns on their otherwise indeterminate activities. But exactly how this interaction occurs remains unclear. One possible starting point is the idea of implicate order, proposed by the quantum physicist David Bohm."


Later, Sheldrake says, "Morphic resonance is non-energetic, and morphogenetic fields themselves are neither a type of mass nor energy. Therefore there seems to be no a priori reason why it should obey the laws that have been found to apply to the movement of bodies, particles and waves. In particular, it need not be attenuated by either spatial or temporal separation; it could be just as effective over 10,000 kilometres as over a centimetre, and over a century as an hour…The morphic influence of a past system might become present to a subsequent similar system by passing 'beyond' space-time and then 're-entering' wherever and whenever a similar pattern of vibration appeared. Or it might be connected through other 'dimensions'. Or it might go through a space-time 'tunnel' to emerge unchanged in the presence of a subsequent similar system. Or the morphic influence of past systems might simply be present everywhere. "


In fact, what Sheldrake is groping towards with his idea of non-physical fields independent of space and time is the r = 0 dimensionless mental domain, outside space and time, powered by dimensionless mental energy. The r = 0 domain accounts for the whole of Sheldrake's hypothesis. He deserves great credit for reaching an excellent intuitive grasp of the r >= 0 paradigm, but the final details eluded him because, despite his willingness to challenge scientific orthodoxy, he couldn't see that the key to his system was to have a dialectical, dimensionless, mental domain shaping a dimensional, physical domain. Both domains evolve, both domains interact and have an influence on each other; they are part of a mental-physical feedback system, just like the mind-brain combination present in every human being. "As above, so below."   


Sheldrake's position is that it is easier to do something that has already been done because a pattern has been established that will help to guide you. It is a non-local version of the process of training ourselves to accomplish something. If we train over and over again, the behavior becomes more and more internalized until eventually we can do something highly complex, with great skill and without even thinking about it because it has become second nature to us. In Sheldrake's scheme, the fact that other people have already done something contributes to our training and makes it easier for us to learn and master it.


When we train ourselves, that is "local" training. When we are helped by the prior training of others anywhere in the world, that is "non-local" training. Non-local training does not happen via the laws of the r > 0 domain, but those of the r = 0 domain.



Sensory Deprivation


Sensory deprivation leads to better outcomes in psychic experiments because the mind is less firmly under the control of the r > 0 physical domain.



How can humans endure excessive cold?


Tumo is the Tibetan yoga of body heat, allowing adepts to endure extreme cold when naked. What they are doing, in effect, is using psychic energy from the r = 0 domain and converting it into sufficient heat energy in the r > 0 domain to compensate for the cold.



How can humans walk across hot coals without being burnt?


This is the opposite process. People absorb the excess heat energy from the coals and convert it into non-harmful psychic energy.



Psychic Children


Young children often display superior psychic skills because they are less embedded in the r > 0 domain and so less "corrupted" by it.


Children tend to give far more vivid accounts of previous lives (presumably because they are not yet "embedded" in a new identity) and often provide verifiable details of their previous lives which they could not have known about in any way other than through reincarnation. They have sometimes correctly specified where they hid money hundreds of years earlier, and have even identified people who murdered them in previous lives.



The Libet Experiment


We have mentioned this experiment in a previous article. It has extraordinary implications for human free will. It suggests that we don't have any! In The Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot provides the following description of the experiment: "Libet and Feinstein measured the time it took for a touch stimulus on a patient's skin to reach the brain as an electrical signal. The patient was also asked to push a button when he or she became aware of being touched. Libet and Feinstein found that the brain registered the stimulus in 0.0001 of a second after it occurred, and the patient pressed the button 0.1 of a second after the stimulus was applied. But, remarkably, the patient didn't report being consciously aware of either the stimulus or pressing the button for almost 0.5 seconds. This meant that the decision to respond was being made by the patient's unconscious mind. The patient's awareness was the slow man in the race. Even more disturbing, none of the patients tested were aware that their unconscious minds had already caused them to push the button before they had consciously decided to do so. Somehow their brains were creating the comforting delusion that they had consciously controlled the action even though they had not. This has caused some researchers to wonder if free will is an illusion. Later studies have shown that one and a half seconds before we 'decide' to move one of our muscles, such as lift a finger, our brain has already started to generate the signals necessary to accomplish the movement. Again, who is making the decision, the conscious mind or the unconscious mind?"


This experiment reveals a hidden complexity in what we mean when we refer to a human mind because, in fact, we have two minds, or rather one mind that comes in two forms. Our real mind is the one that exists in the r = 0 domain, which is outside space and time, and which is revealed to us most clearly in dreams. What we call our "conscious mind" is an r = 0 mind passed through a dimensional converter, so to speak, to make it suitable for use in the r > 0 domain i.e. we have to place a time and space context around our thoughts: they have to be "located" in the physical world: r = 0 thoughts have to be transformed into r > 0 form.


So, Libet's experiment can be explained as follows:


The brain registers the initial stimulus. This is immediately known to the r = 0 mind. It decides to press the button, and instantly signals the appropriate muscles. However, this decision then has to be "translated" into a conscious thought in the r > 0 domain. Just as digital TV signals are associated with a slight delay while the signals are being processed, so it is with the brain software processing the r = 0 mind signals. So, although our r = 0 mind took an instant decision, we do not become consciously aware of that decision until a little later when the time-space r > 0 context has been added.


So, once again, the r >= 0 paradigm is able to provide a straightforward explanation of experimental results that are otherwise entirely baffling within the conventional scientific paradigm.





We have previously shown how the r >= 0 paradigm is fully consistent with the most cutting edge areas of contemporary science. In this article, we have shown how it can make sense of, and clarify, a vast range of paranormal phenomena.


Carl Jung and Nobel Prize winning physicist Wolfgang Pauli collaborated to find a means of bridging the gap between the psychological and scientific worlds, between mind and matter. They failed, but everything they sought is accomplished by the r >= 0 paradigm. It provides a framework for understanding all phenomena of whatever nature. Of course, the r = 0 mental domain will never yield as reliable results as the r > 0 scientific domain because mind cannot be controlled like matter. It is fundamentally more complex, mysterious and wilful, so there's no sense in trying to establish a rigorous "science" of the r = 0 domain. Nevertheless, the r >= 0 paradigm provides the optimal framework for understanding both the mysteries of the dimensionless mental domain, and for resolving the outstanding problems of science.
