David Wilcock talks to Project Camelot's Kerry Cassidy about UFO Disclosure, DNA Upgrade, 2012 and the Norway Spiral of December 9th 2009. David believes the Blue Spiral UFO over Norway is from a nearby HAARP facility, and is part of the slow process of conditioning the masses about UFOs and Extraterrestrials.

In this Coast To Coast AM radio show psychologist Christopher Holmes & George Noory discuss the physics and metaphysics of higher consciousness and the mysteries of the heart. People have a divine spark within the heart, a kind of "zero point" center that corresponds to ideas in new science, he said. Humans work on the same physics that are applied to the universe, he explained, and consciousness is not just in the head but all through the body, and may be related to blood flow.
We exist in interpenetrating dimensions, and according to the esoteric teachings of luminaries such as H.P. Blavatsky, there are seven dimensions that include the physical, astral, and mental realms. The inner self comes down out of the higher dimensions -- one such higher realm is the sun, which is inhabited in the form of "fire bodies," he detailed, adding that a "paradise level" of spiritual existence might reside in Earth's upper atmosphere.
Holmes was critical of film projects such as The Secret, because of its focus on thoughts-creating-reality. He stressed that the heart or feeling aspect gives form to attributes. He also commented that the movie placed too much emphasis on material rather than mystical goals.
Dr. Christopher Holmes is a clinical and forensic psychologist, who has worked as a professor at York University in Toronto and also worked for several years in the Ontario Correctional system. He now dedicates himself full time to Zero Point, an Institute for Mystical and Spiritual Science. Christopher has investigated the enigmas of human consciousness, the mysteries of the heart, paranormal and psychic phenomena, and the dynamics of creation for over thirty years.
He has arrived at a unique synthesis of esoteric and mystical teachings with the study of modern psychology and science. This includes a way of approaching the physics and metaphysics of human consciousness, and of understanding our own higher dimensional origins. Christopher also hosts a two hour biweekly internet radio show on Saturday afternoons 1-3 Pacific Time at bbsradio.com

Know that although our evolutionary process is rapidly accelerating, along with the new higher vibrational energies. We are all experiencing these changes in our own way and in our own time, according to who we are and according to our coding and plan before birth. In addition, generally speaking, our ascension process relates to how we each run our own individual energy and what our beliefs and experiences are. In other words, how we are wired and how we vibrate. These things can be changed and will also change automatically as we clear and embody more light within ourselves. For the highly sensitive, psychic and those very open to the higher realms, the ascension process can be a bit more challenging.
1) Moving into a better job that supports the expression of who you are, your passion or your mission, which are basically the same.
2) Greater financial abundance as you've never quite experienced before.
3) Most of your dreams come true and easily.
4) You attract a new mate/partner or you and your current partner have a relationship revolving around companionship with no issue related "hooks". You love, admire and adore each other for who you are with no dependencies.
5) As you further evolve, you re-unite with your "twin" who is a total reflection of you. Being together is like being with yourself and you feel a unity to Source as never before.
6) You don't seem to care much about anything and nothing seems to matter anymore. You have evolved out of the Old way of being of drama and emotions.
7) You have lost your interest in the "New Age" arena.
8) You KNOW that all your needs are met and will always be.
9) You no longer have the desire or need to make things happen, "to try" or "to fix" anything. You understand "allowing", "acceptance", "being" and "intent".
10) You can no longer relate to mental and analytical processes. You now relate to "feeling".
11) You no longer care what anyone thinks about you or anything else.
12) You understand that there is no right or wrong, good or bad, or black or white. Everything just IS.
13) You finally realize that there is no dark or light. The appearance of lack of light is simply to provide a contrast to spur us on to creating what really feels good. All energy is always going in the same direction, supporting the light.
14) You have lost your desire to read books or gather any more new information as you are now much more connected to Source and can gather it "directly" by being, feeling and "knowing."
15) Your health improves and/or you experience a miracle-like healing of a long standing physical ailment.
16) You crave a simplicity in all things and require and thrive on simple processes, simple desires and a very simple lifestyle.
17) You begin to experience a flow to life at a slow leisurely pace, where you need not do anything you do not really wish to. Everything falls into your lap. You experience much basking, savoring and gratitude for the simple things in life.
18) You only desire to do what is yours to do and no longer have a life full of mundane "responsibilities". When much releasing has been completed you are then left with a purified you…a gold nugget of your divine expression. This is your contribution to the New World.
19) You easily pick up the thoughts, feelings, desires and needs of others, as you are becoming telepathic.
20) You can control your emotions, your experiences and create your world with your mind and intent without doubt or fear.
21) Your surrounding environment has little effect on you. You don't take things personally. Nothing is really worth getting that upset about.
22) You have an unquenchable thirst for creativity. The enormous amount of energy running through you demands an outlet. You feel most as home and in alignment with Source when you are in your passion and creating.
23) You laugh a lot and find many things amusing and funny.
24) You have a heightened love and compassion for all living things. You are also experiencing higher states and more frequent state of love and joy.
25) You live in the moment without a "day planner". Things just naturally unfold day-by-day and moment-by-moment. All stress is gone.
26) You feel incredible peace. There is a distinct absence of fear and you feel safe.
27) Your inner child seems to have disappeared (relating to issues and wounds), although you love to play and frolic. Much of the time you just want to play, play and play!
28) You begin to have an understanding about how everything is connected. You understand that there are no mistakes.
All is in Divine Right Order and there is never and was never anything "wrong".

Time Of The Sixth Sun is a film about the shift in global awareness and the expansion of consciousness as we move beyond 2012 ...
From the Americas to Africa, from Tibet to Australasia, these times are seen as pivotal in the evolution of mankind. Ancient prophecies speak of massive earth changes and of a huge shift in planetary consciousness ….
… As financial and political systems collapse around us and society fragments, the world is increasingly looking for answers.
Our Ancestors understood our symbiotic relationship to the Earth and the Elements and foresaw the collapsing of an unsustainable world.
It is time for us to consciously dream a new future.
Time of the Sixth Sun is a multi-platform film project about the awakening and transformation of global consciousness, a witnessing of these times and the huge potential for change in the world, in the way we relate to it and the way we live in it.
Civilizations throughout the ages have indicated through ancient calendars and visions that 2012 will be a pinnacle time in the evolution of mankind. Native American ancestors prophesized this to be a time when the Condor and the Eagle would fly in the same sky in harmony. North and South, united in the Heart.
Wisdom keepers share their wisdom as many of those who hold the oral traditions are now preparing to leave this Earth plane.
This visual witnessing of word and ceremony not only offers us stability in these challenging times but also guides us and our children into a new era.
The strength of the film comes from the authenticity and integrity of the speakers we interview. Tribal leaders, scientists and thinkers are the pioneers and visionaries of our time, and each carries a sacred transmission.
With our protagonist as our guide, we travel through the realms of prophetic vision and look at the possibilities they present for us to transmute and transform our lives in these challenging times. Like a mirror, our projections are reflected right back at us so that we might see ourselves more clearly. We carry within us the messengers from both the seen and unseen worlds, our denser and higher selves.
EACH OF THE SEVEN CHAPTERS OF THE FILM REPRESENTS A NEW LEVEL OF CONSCIOUS AWARENESS….
This 108 minute documentary feature is a synergy of ceremonies and interviews from wisdom keepers all over the world cut together with a mix of archive footage, stills, graphics, and animation, with a depth and texture hat draws the audience into a rich emotional experience. A sensory feast that promises to be as impactful on the ear as it is on the eye. This project explores some of the most colourful communities on the planet.

Kerry Cassidy from Project Camelot interviews Jessica, A Crystal Child in Sedona, Arizona, December 2008 ! Jessica shares some amazing experiences from her spiritual journey.
She speaks about her purpose of being here and her connection with spirit which has deeply enriched her life and her understanding the nature of reality.
Excerpt from the Transcript ...
K: OK. If you were going to talk about the future… And, you know, a lot of people are talking about 2012, as you know, and what may be going on in the future. Have you been given any visions or dreams of the future, or any information about it from the beings that are contacting you?
J: Definitely. A lot. And I always like to dispense with this “End of the World” kind of thing. But I can understand why people see, or are perceiving it, as the end of the world, because it’s the end of an old way of living, being, and thinking, that has been around for quite some time. So, to a lot of people who don’t have imagination, who can’t see beyond that, then to them it’s the end.
But in actuality it is something far beyond what we’ve ever dreamed. In a sense, the best way to understand it is, you know, “Truth is stranger than fiction”.
And we are going to experience that first-hand with these “paranormal” events which aren’t even para-normal at all. It’s just a bleed-through of who we actually are, coming out in all kinds of different ways. It’s going to be more and more frequent. And people are gonna start just recognizing each other.
And war cannot continue because we… If I harm you, right away I’m going to feel that pain. So, say I punched you in the shoulder? I’m gonna feel it right away in my shoulder. And it’s going to freak people out at first ’cause we’ve never really been… Like nobody’s really taught this to us in school, you know. It’s kind of hush-hush. It’s taboo in the world, but it’s starting to come back.
Humanity’s, you know, in their state of amnesia for such a long time, and now just awakening to what we’ve always known. And it’s very quantum. It’s very multidimensional. It’s memories, not just of past lives, but future lives, multi-dimensional lives, inter-dimensional lives, lives in between lives. We’ll be able to grasp that and understand that.
Right now what’s happening is, it’s just stepping-stones that’s leading us there. And you can’t get attached or box yourself into one belief. There are no limits, just beliefs. So you always got to expand on that.
Bill Ryan & Kerry Cassidy from Project Camelot write about the conversation ...
We met Jessica at the NEXUS conference in Australia in October 2008. She was in tears at the end of our presentation and said that she had to talk with us. A young Australian had seen her home-made YouTube video and had generously personally sponsored her long trip from Vancouver to Brisbane. We salute him for this, and he knows who he is.
We realized that it might be interesting (and valuable to many) to interview Jessica. Seeing her as a Crystal Child, we took the decision to include her among our cadre of witnesses as a representative of the younger and very awakened generation who are well-informed, deeply concerned about world events, and aware of the need for mankind to grow spiritually in order to transcend the myriad of problems we all face together.
In this 50 minute video Jessica speaks openly and emotionally about her personal journey, her family, and some of the bewildering experiences she has encountered. Her weaknesses are her dyslexia, and that she has not yet fully integrated her many experiences and perceptions; her strengths are her openness and her determination to bring a message to those who can hear it from her. She sees herself as a newly-arrived teacher and a messenger, and she probably is both of those things.
Like all of us, she still has a long way to go in her journey, and has much to learn. But this is why we are all here, and the choice we make is to help one another as best we can. We are delighted to help present her message to the world.

Internationally recognized authority in bridging science and spirit, and a leading voice in new biology, Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., spoke about ways humanity can evolve by freeing itself of old belief systems and programming. Political philosopher and humorist Steve Bhaerman, who co-authored with Lipton their new book Spontaneous Evolution, joined in the second hour of the discussion.
Lipton outlined what he called the "Four Myth-Perceptions of the Apocalypse": The world or universe is Newtonian in nature -- based on physical matter, and materialistic values. This is being disproved by quantum physics, which shows that an invisible realm is involved in shaping matter, and points to the connection between science and spirituality. We're not a victim of our genes. We're not a victim of heredity, but can actively participate in the health of our cells/genes through our perceptions and thoughts, and breaking free from subconscious programming. The world is based on competition. This kind of Darwinian thinking keeps us armed, guarded and stressed. Evolution actually favors community and co-operation. Organisms were designed to bring harmony to the environment; they are adaptive, not random.
We allow fear, habit, and programming to box us in, and do things against our better nature, Bhaerman commented. He performed for a few minutes as his humorous character Swami Beyondananda, who shared his "little imparticles of wisdom." "Would you like to be in the now, more?" he asked George, who replied affirmatively. "Well, it's too late, it's already done!" Swami retorted. "We are all in this together... In this planet that we have right now, we have to love thy neighbor as thy selves. Otherwise, there goes the neighborhood," Swami continued.
Institutions are failing us, because they are based on false beliefs, said Bhaerman. Lipton noted the need to integrate oppositional viewpoints, such as conservative and progressive. It just takes a small percentage of the population to become more coherent in their thought process, which in turn can alter the entire field and manifest change, and lead to humanity's evolution, he added.

The Maya of Eternal Time : 2012 and Beyond is a Live Interactive Webcast from Hungary hosted by Drunvalo Melchizedek on July 29, 2009 about the mayan prophecies of 2012.
The Maya have not spoken a single word of prophecy in 527 years, and on this day, July 29th, I have been allowed to directly report from the National Mayan Council of Elders of Guatemala and the head of the Mayan Nation Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj on their beliefs of the Mayan Calendar around the date of December 21, 2012, which is different than what the world has been reporting.
I will also be reporting on the Mayan Prophecy of the beginning of the Mayan people to reclaim their knowledge, experiences, wisdom, and memories from the last 13,000 years and the stories of this experience. The Maya lost a great deal of their knowledge when the Spanish Conquistadors ravaged the Mayan nation. But the Maya had a secret way of returning this knowledge to fulfill their prophecy.
We are less than three and a half years away from this great Mayan Prophecy, and what is about to be reported is extraordinary and something that everyone on Earth needs to know for it is going to effect every last man, woman and child on Earth if the Mayan Prophecy is correct.
The Mayan Calendar predicts a window of time around this date of December 21, 2012 called THE END OF TIME, and so you know, we are now inside of this window of time. We are living now inside THE END OF TIME.
I will be reporting from Hungary on the internet, and it will be live and interactive, so you will be able to ask questions and hear and see my reply. There will be three broadcasts to fit the times of the world and the web cast will be in several languages. Please go to www.onelotus.net if you wish to sign up for this web cast.
May your heart reconnect with the Heart of the Earth, the Heart of the Sun and the Heart of the Universe, for this is the Mayan way to survive what is about to happen.

A Gigantic Human Butterfly Crop Circle formation (530 Meters x 450 Meters), the Biggest Crop Circle Ever ... appeared in Netherlands near a town in southern Holland called 'Goes', on the 7th of August 2009 (7,8,9 ... Activation Sequence Initiated ... ツ). Quite interestingly the word 'Goes' when anagrammed gives us 'Egos' ... pointing out towards transcending the ego as we journey forth in our spiritual evolution ... and this is how it 'goes' ... There is more ... HAHAHAHAHA ...
Just found this on Anagram Genius ... The software was also used by Dan Brown to create the anagrams in the The Da Vinci Code !
Spontaneous Evolution a book by Dr. Bruce Lipton & Steve Bhaerman ( Swami Beyondananda ) too has something super synchromystical going on with this beautiful Human Butterfly Crop Circle ... and this is how it goes ...
HAHAHAHA :D ... This is confirmation ... We are definitely on schedule ! ツ
It is an incredibly large butterfly with Da Vinci's 'Vitruvian Man' in the center, depicting the metamorphosis of the Caterpillar into a Butterfly. I stumbled upon this brilliant crop circle today while randomly checking one of my friends' profile on facebook ... my first reaction was that of sheer amazement and the feeling of a rising wave of excitement within realizing the magical synchronicity communicating with all tuned in ...
Mayan Prophecy 2012 has an image of a man much like Da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man" ... and just a few days ago I added a quote about the Caterpillar to Butterfly Transformation at the end of the blog with a small symbol for a Butterfly :) ... A friend called 'Vikas' (which means to 'Grow' or 'Evolve') sent me this quote couple of months back ... soon after the magical dragonfly crop circle appeared in England, which was also quite synchronistic as we were discussing dragonflies a day before it was reported :) This formation has not yet been reported by Crop Circle Connector and there seems to be a massive drive by the media to keep this low key by suggesting it was man made ... :) We would love to see pictures or videos taken of the artists while at work :) The Butterfly is symbolic of the process of evolution and is used in many cultures and traditions to symbolize the 'Psyche' or the 'Soul' ... Spiritual Evolution: The butterfly exists in four distinct forms. Some consider that so do we: The fertilized egg is planted in our mother's womb. From our day of birth we are like the caterpillar which can only eat and creep along. At death we are like the dormant pupa in its chrysalis. After that, our consciousness emerges from the cast off body, and some see in this the emergence of the butterfly. Therefore, the butterfly is symbolic of rebirth after death. For Christians, the butterfly's three steps of metamorphosis -- as caterpillar, pupa and then winged insect -- are reminiscent of spiritual transformation. The caterpillar's incessant crawling and chewing reminds us of normal earthly life where people are often wholly preoccupied with physical needs. The chrysalis (cocoon) resembles a tomb and empty, can suggest the empty shroud left behind by Jesus. Therefore, a butterfly represents the resurrection into a new condition of life that is free of any material concerns. In images of the Garden of Eden, Adam's soul is symbolized by a butterfly, or drawn with butterfly wings. In paintings of Mary and her Child, the presence of butterflies stands for their care for human souls. The Gnostics depicted the Angel of Death by showing a winged foot stepping on a butterfly. Since the insect is so fragile it can be torn apart by a hard rain, the butterfly stands for human frailty, both moral and physical. Also, as its life is not a long one, it is also a symbol of the ephemeral nature of physical existence. A butterfly with a torn wing is the icon for a North American charity that benefits disabled children. Transfiguration : In America among the Aztec and Maya, the god of cosmic fire, Xiutecutli, is symbolized by a butterfly. Fire is considered the element of transformation, as in cookery and the smelting of metals. This association is borne out in traditional psychoanalysis where a dream or drawing of a butterfly is taken as a symbol of the client's imminent transformation. En este caso no habido ni sueño ni pintura, pero si la sincronicidad jungiana de la aparición de una mariposa en tu ventana en pleno sand storm … (Roughly translated ... In this case not sleep or painting, but the jungian synchronicity of the emergence of a butterfly in your window in full sand storm) The ancient Greeks depicted the spirit of a person as a winged stick figure. Interpretation of that symbol gave rise to the idea of the "Soul" or "Psyche" as a butterfly. The Butterfly Effect suggests the idea that one butterfly could eventually have a far-reaching ripple effect on subsequent historic events and was first mentioned by Ray Bradbury in 1952 in a short story on Time Travel ! As Gregg Braden also suggests in one of his videos on the Holographic nature of the Universe ... One change anywhere in the hologram is mirrored throughout the Hologram ...

Solara An-Ra, is a spirit channeler who grew up in South Africa, completing a B.A. degree and Teaching Diploma at Cape Town University. After moving to the UK in 1987 she began training as an Alternative Therapist, leaving her school teaching career behind. In her heart she still longed to be a teacher however, and her training and work in many healing disciplines, together with her progress on her individual spiritual path, led her to become a teacher of all things spiritual. This is a video of a Pleiadian-Sirian transmission channeled by Solara An-Ra about the 999 activation portal towards ascension ...
She has been channeling advice and information from guides for many years and was told to call her first workshops 'Meditation', even though she had always found it difficult to meditate! Her meditation courses are now legendary in South London, are recommended by local GP's, and always have a waiting list.
Solara now teaches channeling, healing, manifesting, and Ascension principles and techniques as well - and loves every moment of her work! She is one of those rare spiritual teachers who brings a sense of joy and fun into everything she does.
PLAYING WITH THE PLEIADIANS
MY ADVENTURES WITH THE P'S SO FAR !
The Pleiadians (if you haven’t met them yet) are a collective of light beings from the Pleiades star system. They are a loving and evolved group who are intimately connected with our evolution at this critical time of awakening on Earth. They’re also hugely informative, fun, funny and down-to-earth (I realise that sounds like a contradiction), and I love them to bits!
My interaction with the Pleiadians was initiated through my opening to channelling - which was kick-started in August 1998 in the amazing portal of Mount Shasta, in the Northern tip of California. I was on a family holiday with my then-husband Jeremy and two children, and we’d scheduled two days in Mount Shasta … but the Universe conspired to keep us there long enough for some magic to happen, by causing our R.V. to break down as soon as we arrived!
The year before the trip to the Sates I’d read Sanaya Roman’s book ‘Opening to Channel’ (mostly channelled by her wonderful guide Orin) – it described an easy, natural way to open to one’s guides energy and information from the Higher Planes. It encouraged a conscious form of channelling, where you’re not ‘taken over’ by the guide – Orin said that this was the way forward in the New Age.
I longed to be able to master this skill, but I hadn’t let go of the idea I’d had for so many years that channelling was a ‘gift’ only some people had - so I didn’t have the confidence to try. I’d also bought a set of tapes by Lita D’Alberdi which contained channelling exercises, but I hadn’t used them yet.
In Mount Shasta, camped in the forest at the base of the beautiful snow-capped mountain, I passed Sanaya’s book onto Jeremy to read one night, and it was one of those ‘perfect time, perfect place’ moments. He got so intensely into the book that he stayed up all night, finished reading it by lunchtime the following day, and then started to practice with Lita’s set of tapes immediately!There is no question in either of our minds that he was impulsed to do this by his guides because we were in such a spiritual hotspot – Mount Shasta is considered by many to be the throat chakra of our Mother Earth! What happened blew us both away – an incredibly strong and clear guide, rather eccentrically called Gordon, spoke through Jeremy almost as soon as he started the practice exercises.
Witnessing how easy the process had been for Jeremy shifted the self-doubt that had been holding me back from channeling, and on our return to London I went to an ‘Opening to Channel’ day led by my friend Maggie Pashley. The workshop was great, and it gave me the confidence to buy a tape recorder and start practicing.
I always asked for the highest guidance possible to flow through me, and then asked questions which ranged from the most mundane, practical issues in my life, to advice which would lead me forward on my spiritual path. Although I practised initially with Jeremy and Maggie, I never had much desire to channel for others - but I was aware that when I worked with clients in my healing practice, the words I spoke to them and the advice I gave were often coming from that same higher source.Channelling for myself became my first form of personal spiritual practice, like a meditation time. I always recorded the sessions, and then transcribed and filed them periodically – which meant that I was able to look back at the advice given to me over a long period, and gain new perspectives. (In fact, it’s only when I look back now that I can track how often the Pleiadians have played with me through my channeling since 1999!)
Around this time I started to read my first Pleiadian book, ‘The Pleiadian Agenda’ by Barbara Hand-Clow. I was simultaneously fascinated and freaked out by the information in it! On the one hand, I could actually feel the power and truth that radiated from some of the material – especially from the Pleiadian being called Satya, the keeper of the library on Alcyone, the central star of the Pleiadian spiral. But I couldn’t handle some of the ideas in the book, like the story of the ‘lizard beings’ who disconnected our DNA in order to more easily control us!
Channelling with Jeremy one day I asked his guide whether I should continue reading it, and the answer that came was intriguing. Hesaid, “You have discovered this book not by chance, but because it will have a daunting affect in your life. It is of an unsuitable depth for your current understanding … it will present itself to you in a different way at a different time when it is more appropriate.” Although the word ‘daunting’ didn’t sound positive, I understood that what was meant was that the Pleiadian material would have a large impact on my life.
Jeremy’s guide Gordon also said at a later date, “The Pleiadians will eventually lift you higher, higher than the planes of Ashkanaza, which will lead you to find a deeper understanding of your own relevance in the world.” I couldn’t wait! I was also told that my connection with the Pleiadians would strengthen as my ability to channel strengthened, but that piece of information didn’t register at the time.
In my own channelling, I was much more focused initially on guides that I could identify with as having been human in another lifetime – like my first guide Wanaseh, who showed himself to me as a beautiful young North American Indian. His words came through as eloquent, poetic, loving messages of encouragement on my path.

The Primacy of Consciousness is a video presentation by Peter Russel, given at the "Physics of Consciousness" conference, Virginia, 2004.
In this documentary Peter Russell explores the mystery of consciousness from both scientific and mystical perspectives, showing how light is intrinsic to both, and giving a coherent argument as to why consciousness is fundamental essence of the cosmos.
Ervin Laszlo has proposed that the virtual energy field known as the quantum vacuum, or zero-point field, corresponds to what Indian teachings have called Akasha. the source of everything that exists, and in which the memory of the cosmos is encoded. I would like to take his reasoning a step further and suggest that the nature of this ultimate source is consciousness itself, nothing more and nothing less.
Again we find this idea is not new. In the Upanishads, Brahman, the source of the cosmos (literally, "that from which everything grows"), is held to be to Atman ("that which shines"), the essence of consciousness. And in the opening lines of The Dhammapada, the Buddha declares that "All phenomena are preceded by mind, made by mind, and ruled by mind".
Such a view, though widespread in many metaphysical systems, is completely foreign to the current scientific worldview. The world we see is so obviously material in nature; any suggestion that it might have more in common with mind is quickly rejected as having "no basis in reality". However, when we consider this alternative worldview more closely, it turns out that it is not in conflict with any of the findings of modern science—only with its presuppositions. Furthermore, it leads to a picture of the cosmos that is even more enchanted.
All in the Mind
The key to this alternative view is the fact that all our experiences—all our perceptions, sensations, dreams, thoughts and feelings—are forms appearing in consciousness. It doesn't always seem that way. When I see a tree it seems as if I am seeing the tree directly. But science tells us something completely different is happening. Light entering the eye triggers chemical reactions in the retina, these produce electro-chemical impulses which travel along nerve fibers to the brain. The brain analyses the data it receives, and then creates its own picture of what is out there. I then have the experience of seeing a tree. But what I am actually experiencing is not the tree itself, only the image that appears in the mind. This is true of everything I experience. Everything we know, perceive, and imagine, every color, sound, sensation, every thought and every feeling, is a form appearing in the mind. It is all an in-forming of consciousness.
The idea that we never experience the physical world directly has intrigued many philosophers. Most notable was the eighteenth-century German philosopher Immanual Kant, who drew a clear distinction between the form appearing in the mind—what he called the phenomenon (a Greek word meaning "that which appears to be")—and the world that gives rise to this perception, which he called the noumenon (meaning “that which is apprehended"). All we know, Kant insisted, is the phenomenon. The noumenon, the “thing-in-itself,” remains forever beyond our knowing.
Unlike some of his predecessors, Kant was not suggesting that this reality is the only reality. Irish theologian Bishop Berkeley had likewise argued that we know only our perceptions. He then concluded that nothing exists apart from our perceptions, which forced him into the difficult position of having to explain what happened to the world when no one was perceiving it. Kant held that there is an underlying reality, but we never know it directly. All we can ever know of it is the form that appears in the mind—our mental model of what is "out there".
It is sometimes said that our model of reality is an illusion, but that is misleading. It may all be an appearance in the mind, but it is nonetheless real—the only reality we ever know. The illusion comes when we confuse the reality we experience with the physical reality, the thing-in-itself. The Vedantic philosophers of ancient India spoke of this confusion as maya. Often translated as “illusion” (a false perception of the world), maya is better interpreted as “delusion” (a false belief about the world). We suffer a delusion when we believe the images in our minds are the external world. We deceive ourselves when we think that the tree we see is the tree itself.
The tree itself is a physical object, constructed from physical matter—molecules, atoms, sub-atomic particles. But from what is the image in the mind constructed? Clearly it is not constructed from physical matter. A perceptual image is composed of the same "stuff" as our dreams, thoughts, and feelings, and we would not say that these are created from physical atoms or molecules. (There might or might not be a corresponding physical activity in the brain, but what I am concerned with here is the substance of the image itself.) So what is the mental substance from which all our experiences are formed?
The English language does not have a good word for this mental essence. In Sanskrit, the word chitta, often translated as consciousness, carries the meaning of mental substance, and is sometimes translated as "mindstuff". It is that which takes on the mental forms of images, sounds, sensations, thoughts, and feelings. They are made of "mindstuff" rather than "matterstuff".
Mindstuff, or chitta, has the potential to take on the form of every possible experience—everything that I, or anyone else, could possibly experience in life; every experience of every being, on this planet, or any other sentient being, anywhere in the cosmos. In this respect consciousness has infinite potential. In the words of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, "Consciousness is the field of all possibilities".
This aspect of consciousness can be likened to the light from a film projector. The projector shines light onto a screen, modifying the light so as to produce one of an infinity of possible images. These images are like the perceptions, sensations, dreams, memories, thoughts, and feelings that we experience—the forms arising in consciousness. The light itself, without which no images would be possible, corresponds to this ability of consciousness to take on form.
We know all the images on a movie screen are composed of light, but we are not usually aware of the light itself; our attention is caught up in the images that appear and the stories they tell. In much the same way, we know we are conscious, but we are usually aware only of the many different perceptions, thoughts, and feelings that appear in the mind. We are seldom aware of consciousness itself.
All phenomena are projections in the mind.

No Matter ?
Although we may not know the external world directly, we can draw conclusions from our experience as to what it might be like. This, in essence, has been the focus of our scientific endeavors. Scientists have sought to understand the functioning of the world around us, and draw conclusions about its true nature.
To the surprise of many, the world "out there" has turned out to be quite unlike our experience of it. Consider our experience of the color green. In the physical world there is light of a certain frequency, but the light itself is not green. Nor are the electrical impulses that are transmitted from the eye to the brain. No color exists there. The green we see is a quality appearing in the mind in response to this frequency of light. It exists only as a subjective experience in the mind.
The same is true of sound. I hear the music of a violin, but the sound I hear is a quality appearing in the mind. There is no sound as such in the external world, just vibrating air molecules. The smell of a rose does not exist without an experiencing mind, just molecules of a certain shape.
The same is also true of the solidness we experience in matter. Our experience of the world is certainly one of solidness, so we assume that the "thing in itself" must be equally solid. For two thousand years it was believed that atoms were tiny solid balls—a model clearly drawn from everyday experience. Then, as physicists discovered that atoms were composed of more elementary, subatomic particles (electrons, protons, neutrons, and suchlike) the model shifted to one of a central nucleus surrounded by orbiting electrons—again, a model based on experience.
An atom may be small, a mere billionth of an inch across, but subatomic particles are a hundred thousand times smaller still. Imagine the nucleus of an atom magnified to the size of a golf ball. The whole atom would then be the size of a football stadium, and the electrons would be like peas flying round the stands. As the early twentieth-century British physicist Sir Arthur Eddington put it, “Matter is mostly ghostly empty space.” To be more precise, it is 99.9999999% empty space.
With the development of quantum theory, physicists have found that even subatomic particles are far from solid. In fact, they are nothing like matter as we know it. They cannot be pinned down and measured precisely. Much of the time they seem more like waves than particles. They are like fuzzy clouds of potential existence, with no definite location. Whatever matter is, it has little, if any, substance.
Our notion of matter as a solid substance is, like the color green, a quality appearing in consciousness. It is a model of what is "out there", but as with almost every other model, quite unlike what is actually out there.
Even the notion of mass is questionable. In his General Theory of Relativity, Albert Einstein showed that mass and acceleration are indistinguishable. A person in an elevator feels lighter when the elevator accelerates downwards, and heavier when it decelerates to a halt. This is no illusion, scales would also show your weight to have changed. What we experience as mass is the resistance of the ground beneath our feet to our otherwise free fall towards the center of the Earth. According to Einstein, we are being continually decelerated, and interpret that as mass. An astronaut in orbit experiences no mass—until, that is, he bumps into the wall of the spacecraft and experiences a temporary deceleration.
Whatever matter is, it is not made of matter.
—Prof. Hans-Peter Dürr
Spacetime and Action
Einstein's work also revealed that space and time are not absolutes. They vary according to the motion of the observer. If you are moving rapidly past me, and we both measure the distance and time between two events—a car traveling from one end of a street to another, say—then you will observe the car to have traveled less distance in less time than I observe. Conversely, from your point of view, I am moving rapidly past you, and in your frame of reference I will observe less space and time than you do. Weird? Yes. And almost impossible for us to conceive of. Yet numerous experiments have shown it to be true. It is our common sense notions of space and time that are wrong. Once again they are constructs in the mind, and do not perfectly model what is out there.
Kant foresaw this a hundred years before Einstein. He concluded that space and time are the dimensional framework in which the mind constructs its experience. They are built into the perceiving process, and we cannot but think in terms of space and time. But they are not aspects of the objective reality. That reality, according to Einstein, is something else, what he called "spacetime". When observed, spacetime appears as a certain amount of space and a certain amount of time. But how much is perceived as space and how much is perceived as time is not fixed; they depend upon the motion of the observer.
If space, time, and matter have no absolute objective status, what about energy? Physicists have a hard time saying exactly what energy is. It is defined as the potential to do work, that is, to create change. Energy comes in many different forms: potential energy, kinetic energy, chemical energy, electrical energy, heat energy, radiation energy. But we never measure energy as such, only the changes that we attribute to energy.
Energy if often said to be a fundamental quality of the cosmos. But that too turns out to be a mistake. According the Special Theory of Relativity, energy and mass are interchangeable, related by Einstein's famous equation, E=mc2. Observers traveling at different speeds will differ in their measurements of how much energy an object has.
Quantum theory offers further clues as to the nature of energy. The quantum is commonly called a quantum of energy, the smallest possible unit of energy. But that is not strictly correct. The quantum is actually a quantum of action.
What is action? It is another physical quantity like distance, velocity, momentum, force, and others that we meet in physics, but it is not usually given much attention in our basic math or physics
The amount of action in a quantum is exceedingly small, about 0.00000000000000000000000000662618 erg.secs (or 6.62618 x 10 erg.secs in mathematical shorthand)—but it is always exactly the same amount. It as one of the few absolutes in existence, and more fundamental than space, time, matter, or energy. The Zero-Point Field is not therefore a potential energy field—despite the fact it is often referred to as such. It is a potential quantum field, a field of potential action.
A photon is a single quantum of light, but the energy associated with a photon varies enormously. A gamma-ray photon, for example, packs trillions of times more energy than a radio-wave photon. But each and every photon, each and every quantum, is an identical unit of action.
When the photon is absorbed—by the retina of the eye, say—it manifests as a certain amount of energy, measured by the amount of change it is capable of creating. This change is what is conveyed to the brain and then interpreted as color. The amount of change, or energy, is dependent upon the frequency, which is why we say different colors correspond to different frequencies of light.
What is frequency? Again it is another model taken from experience and then imagined to apply to the photon. It is most unlikely that a photon has frequency as we think of it. Indeed, even the idea of a photon is another example of how we have projected our experience on to the external world. We experience particles so imagine light might be a particle. We also have the experience of waves, so imagine light as a wave. Sometimes light seems to fit one description, other times another. It is much more likely that light is neither wave nor particle. For reasons of space, I will not go into the details of the argument here, but the interested reader can find more in my book From Science to God.
To summarize the argument so far: Our whole experience is a construction in the mind, a form appearing in consciousness. These mental forms are composed not of physical substance but of"mindstuff". We imagine that the world out there is like the forms that appear in consciousness, but it turns out, that in nearly every aspect, the external is not at all like the images created in the mind. What appear to us as fundamental dimensions and attributes of the physical world—space, time, matter and energy—are but the fundamental dimensions and attributes of the forms appearing in consciousness.
Matter is derived from mind, not mind from matter.
—The Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation
Two Aspects or One ?
In Chapter Four, Ervin introduces panpsychism: the hypothesis that consciousness is not unique to human beings, or higher animals, or even creatures with nervous systems. It is in everything. As he is at pains to point out, this is not to imply that simpler systems have thoughts or feelings, or any of the other mental functions that we associate with consciousness, only that the capacity for consciousness is there in some form, however faint. Even a lowly bacterium has a glimmer of the inner light, maybe a billionth of the inner light we know, but not nothing at all.
The current scientific paradigm assumes the exact opposite—that matter itself is completely insentient, it is completely devoid of the capacity for experience. Consciousness only comes into existence with the evolution of complex nervous systems. The problem with this view—David Chalmers', "hard problem"—is explaining how conscious experience could ever emerge from insentient matter. Why doesn't all that neural processing go on "in the dark?"
Ervin argues that the only tenable answer, anathema as it may be to the current scientific worldview, is that the capacity for inner experience does not suddenly appear, as if by magic, once a particular level of complexity has arisen. The potential for inner experience has been there all along.
Panpsychism is usually taken to imply that there are dual aspects to everything. There is the physical aspect, that which we can observe from the outside, and there is a mental aspect, the experiences known from the inside. For a long time I went along with this dual aspect view. But recently I have begun to question it. I have not questioned whether or not there is a mental aspect, which is the question that most people raise. I have come to question whether there is, after all, a physical aspect. I realize this is radical to many, but let me briefly go over the reasons behind this suggestion and the implications.
Every time we try to pin down the physical aspect we come away empty-handed. Every idea we have had of the physical has proven to be wrong, and the notion of materiality seems to be evaporating before our eyes. But our belief in the material world is so deeply engrained—and so powerfully reinforced by our experience—that we cling to our assumption that there must be some physical essence. Like the medieval astronomers who never questioned their assumption that the Earth was the center of the universe, we never question our assumption that the external world is physical in nature. Indeed it was quite startling to me when I realized that the answer might be staring us straight in the face. Maybe there really is nothing there. No "thing" that is. No physical aspect. Maybe there is only a mental aspect to everything.
We would then have to think of the Akashic Field as a field that is entirely mental in nature. Its essence is the essence of mind. It's hard to imagine, I know. In fact all we can imagine are the forms arising in our minds. We cannot imagine consciousness itself. It is the imaginer, that in which images arise. It is probably best not even to try to imagine what a mental field is like, for we would surely be as wrong as when we try to imagine quanta, or spacetime.
All we can say about it is that it is not a uniform field. It must contain distinctions of some kind, for it is these variations that are the origin of our perception of the world. If there were no variations in the field, there would be nothing to observe, nothing to experience.
These variations in the field are the "objects" of our perception. But they are not objects in the sense of a material object. They only become material objects in the mind of the observer. There then appears to be a material "thing" out there. We then assume that the physicality we experience, which seems so intrinsic to the world we know, must also be an intrinsic aspect of the external world.
Even though there may be no physical basis to the external world, the laws of physics still hold true. The only thing that changes is our assumption of what we are measuring. We are not measuring physical particles or such, but perturbations in the Akashic mind-field. The laws of "physics" become the laws governing the unfolding of a mental field, reflections of how perturbations in this field interact.
What we call an elementary particle would correspond to an elementary variation in the field. We might better call it an elementary entity rather than particle. Elementary entities are organized into atoms, molecules, cells and suchlike, just as in the current paradigm. The difference is that we no longer have to think of consciousness sensing matter (with all the difficulties that involves of how the physical influences the mental), consciousness is now sensing consciousness directly.
Interaction might now be thought of as perception—the perception of one region in the mind-field by another. In the current view every interaction is mediated by a quantum of action (an inter-action). In this alternative view, the smallest item would be a unit of perception, a unit of experience. It would be a quantum of consciousness, a quantum of chitta.
In the physical world of our experience we have discovered action to be a fundamental quality. In this alternative view, that still is true. Consciousness acts as it takes form. A quantum of action is a quantum of experience, a quantum of chitta.
We can now begin to understand why the material world appears to be devoid of consciousness. The qualities that appear in the mind—the color, sound, smell, substance, or whatever—become objects of perception, "the material world". But there is no sign of consciousness itself in the images of matter that appear in the mind. Just as when we watch a movie, the picture on the screen may be composed of light, but there is no evidence in the unfolding story that this is the case. The forms that arise in the mind give no hint in themselves that they are all manifestations of mindstuff. They appear to be other than consciousness. And so we assume that the stuff of the world "out there"—the matterstuff—is insentient.
Physics is the study of the structure of consciousness.
The "stuff" of the world is mindstuff.
—Sir Arthur Eddington
The Hard Question Revisited
The hard question of how insentient matter could ever give rise to conscious experience is now turned inside-out. There is no insentient matter—apart from that appearing in the mind. The question now becomes: How does mind take on all these qualities that we experience, including that of matter?
That question is best answered by direct awareness; by turning the light of consciousness in upon itself, and observing the nature of mind first-hand. Those who have chosen this path are the great mystics, yogis, seers, saints, rishis, and roshis who are found dotted throughout human history.
Despite the differences in time and culture, they have come to remarkably similar conclusions. These conclusions do not, however, make much sense to the contemporary Western mind. In most cases they seem to be so a odds with the current scientific worldview that they are rejected out of hand—and with them any credibility there may be for spirituality in general.
Consider, for instance, the statement by Baba Muktananda that "You are the entire universe. You are in all, and all is in you. Sun, moon, and stars revolve within you." Most people would be puzzled, if not confused. It clearly goes against the contemporary worldview in which I am a small point at the center of my universe, around which everything else revolves. Muktananda appears to be saying the exact opposite. Possibly, we might surmise, a mind deranged by too much meditation.
However, if we see it in terms of an intimate personal acquaintance with the arising of mental phenomena, and hence of our whole world, it makes much more sense. Every experience, every thing we ever know, is taking place within us.
Likewise, when we read such peoples' accounts of creation, we are likely to interpret them in terms of how the physical world was created. In a sense they are. But they are talking of the physical world as it appears in the mind—how that is being continually created.
The Ashtavakra Gita, a highly venerated Indian text, says: "The Universe produced phenomenally in me, is pervaded by me. . . From me the world is born, in me it exists, in me it dissolves." Hardly comprehensible, until we consider it from the point of view of consciousness.
"In the beginning was Logos." Often translated as "The Word", logos also means "thought, or essence." In the beginning was the mental essence, chitta.
"Be still and know that I am God" is not necessarily an injunction to stop moving around and recognize that the person speaking is the creator of the entire cosmos; it is much more likely an encouragement to still the mind—in the words of the great yogi Patanjali, "let the manifesting of chitta die down"—and discover through direct knowing, that "I", that ever-present, never-changing, innermost essence of your own mind, is the essence of everything.
It is in this that I find a personal re-enchantment of the cosmos. If our own essence is divine, and the essence of consciousness is to be found in everything, everywhere, then everything is divine. Panpsychism becomes pantheism. It doesn't matter whether we call it Universal Mind, Allah, God, Jehovah, the Great Spirit, or the Quantum Vacuum Field, we are all of that same essence.
This raises my level of awe for the world in which I live, or seem to live. When I consider that—despite all appearances to the contrary—this world is, in the final analysis, of the same essence as my own being, I am filled with wonder. Every thing is enchanted anew.
