Several hundred years ago scientists considered that the weight of an object
was fixed and absolute. Then Isaac Newton demonstrated that an object
weighed less at the top of a mountain than it did at sea level, where gravity was stronger. (Weight is a measure of the force that gravity exerts on an object).
So a new term was coined... mass. The mass of an object was considered
constant, but its weight varied with height. The higher the object above the
earth's surface, the less was the effect of gravity, hence the less its weight. But height did not affect the "mass" of an object.
So for a long time mass was considered absolute. Then along came Einstein
with his relativity theory. He proved that mass actually varies depending on the speed it was traveling. The closer a mass gets to the speed of light (186,000 miles per second) the greater its mass becomes. When it reaches the speed of light its mass becomes infinite and as it would take an infinite force to accelerate an infinite mass then nothing solid can exceed the speed of light.
So speed became more important than mass which had become more important
At the same time Einstein found that when an object travels very fast, close
to the speed of light, time slows down so the astronauts who traveled to the moon and back have aged a fraction of a second less than us earthbound mortals. If an astronaut traveled outward for 5 years at near the speed of light and then turned around and made the same journey back to earth he might be 10 years older while back here on earth something like 50 - 100 years would have passed.
So everything is relative to speed. Both time and mass are determined by speed.
Nothing in our universe is quite what it seems.
The mindpower gurus who can operate mentally in theta or some other altered
consciousness state believe that they enter a time-free zone where they can
see past/present/future events with equal clarity. It has always been
considered that time flows forward, like an arrow from a bow but the relatively new science of Quantum Physics indicates that it may well flow in the opposite direction also.
And the more the scientific world delves into the strangeness of Quantum
Physics, the weirder are the things being discovered.
It basically started out with the aperture test whereby a stream of light is shone through a narrow slit on to a screen. The light either showed up as a particle image on the screen or as a waveform, depending on what the experimenter expected! And there is now a line of thought that wonders if the normal state of events is the waveform, which materializes into particle form only when consciously examined.
When one considers the vast empty spaces inside supposedly solid matter,
there may be some merit in this particle materialization concept. If you think about all the planets in our solar system and the vast distances between them, then reduce the size of our solar system down to that of an atom, it becomes easier to comprehend the spaces inside each atom. In fact, 99.99999999999...% of a supposedly solid object is space. It has been estimated that if all the "spaces" in the known universe were removed and only "solid" material left, then you could hold this in the palm of your hand.
The video monitor you are currently looking at is made up of mainly blank
space. It consists of subatomic particles with vast spaces around them. In fact the whole known universe... and everything in it... is made up of the same material... subatomic particles. If you raise your eyes from your screen and look around you, everything you see is made of subatomic
particles, even your pet cat, which is mainly empty space. (Something you've
always suspected!) Everything is the same... except... Human Consciousness !!
The Only Exception to the Rule is Human Consciousness
Conscious awareness is a "stand-alone" event in the entire universe.
It is an anomaly.
Obviously this consciousness is a superior event compared to all the mundane
subatomic sameness surrounding it. No wonder that controlled consciousness
can influence the lifeless brethren we call inert matter! That is, there is no reason whatsoever why a human mind cannot influence matter.
The main reason we can't do it, is because we don't expect to!
The same as the scientists with the aperture test... they get what they
expect in the way of results. It takes a major change in the mental operating process to be able to influence matter to the point where you can cause psychokinetic effects with mind-power alone, but it happens!
If you think deeply about this, you will probably conclude that there is no
reason why the superior stand-alone event of consciousness should not be
able to directly influence the atomic structure of lifeless matter.
Einstein has proven that energy and mass are interchangeable (as in a nuclear reaction) and various universities and laboratories have been able to either measure or calculate the force generated by a human mind (as in psychokinetic experiments).
The obvious conclusion here is that, as mass and energy are interchangeable,
the energy generated by human consciousness can be converted into its mass equivalent, the format of which is controlled and directed by the most
extraordinary of higher-consciousness processes... VISUALIZATION !!!
When a human mind clearly and continually visualizes an end result, with
deep emotion and concentrated intent, then the formatted energy generated is
converted into its mass equivalent - ie. the result desired. As strange as this may sound, it is scientifically feasible and generally accepted as truth among the mind power people and top motivators.
In our universe... nothing is what it seems!!
When we are born we are totally unprogrammed. We are like a computer without the software. Each developing individual slowly slips into a reality frame
that is he or she finds comfortable. As we grow we are trained to recognize
a common reality so that we can interact with others. We usually learn this via peer pressure at school and from social groups and parental influence.
That is, every sane human being adopts a "common denominator" when it comes
to reality. This "window of reality" is basically the same for the entire human race. Your reality training teaches you that mankind cannot walk on white hot coals with a temperature 5 times that of boiling water! Yet it is done! The same training tells you that you cannot influence matter with your mind. Yet it happens!
Everybody "knows" that you cannot sit in a chair, relax, and clearly visualize some distant scene, in past, present or future time, with approximately the same degree of accuracy as produced by your other 5 senses.
Yet the Australian Aboriginal race have always had this "gift" and consider it normal.
And there are a number of European people who have taken the trouble to
learn this *Remote Viewing* process and some even practice it for a living! Major corporations employ them to fill in information gaps.
The reality window, as we have accepted it for generations, is no longer valid.
Too many people are finding how to step outside it.
Under certain conditions, your mind can "escape" from the restriction of
this universal window. And as an increasing number of individuals experience these "impossible" alternatives, universal human consciousness changes. When a critical number of people can achieve these alternative realities, then, like the 100th monkey theory, everyone will suddenly "know" that these things can be done. Sheldrake's Morphogenic Field theory explains how this is achieved in real life.
Nothing is what it seems!!!
For the past 100 years or so western civilization has been technology
orientated. The higher the technology, the better we like it. But technology
is logic based.
And our logic is based on our reality window.
If we become aware of a different form of technology which is not only outside our logic base, but also can't be replicated reliably and worse still, cannot be measured on conventional instruments, then we panic! It is outside our reality window.
But such technologies already exist. They are the science of the 21st Century!
Furthermore, there are many anomalies in nature.
Resonance is one of them. The magnetic field around a permanent magnet is
another. *Cleve Baxter's Primary Perception* is yet another.
It is likely that the ongoing application of quantum physics to known anomalies will lead to the science of the 21st century.
Nothing is what it seems.
For example it has always been considered that time is a constant.
That is, the seconds, minutes and hours tick along at the same speed for everyone.
But an extremely clever device was invented some years ago by Dr. Nilolai
Kozyrev which apparently measures micro-small distortions in time. When a
small mechanical or chemical event is examined it has been found that time
appears to be thin around the "cause" and dense around the resultant event.
It seems that time may be variable!!
Nothing is what it seems.
Nature is full of anomalies. Until recently mainstream science tended to ignore these unwelcome events... because they were not understood. But not any more. There is a new breed of scientist who is less impressed with peer opinion and more concerned with stepping outside the common reality window.
This new breed is the scientist of the 21st century... you will be hearing a lot from this minority group in the future... because......nothing is what it seems!!!!
