1994: Alternative Cosmologies and Altered States

by Stanislav Grof Noetic Sciences Review, Winter 1994, pages 21-29 From a talk given at the Institute of Noetic Sciences conference “The Sacred Source: Life, Death, and the Survival of Consciousness”, Chicago, Illinois, July 15-17, 1994. Editor’s Note: In Western societies, the dominant paradigm presents a cosmology in which humans, as biological matter, live and die in a universe governed by the laws of physics. In this worldview, there is no room for the possibility of life after death, and different states of consciousness have significance only as pathological deviations from that worldview. In sharp contrast, the cosmologies of other cultures, ancient and contemporary pre-industrial, have taken for granted the existence of an afterlife. For them, dying is a meaningful part of life, and death is a journey for which the individual can and should prepare. To aid in this, many cultures throughout history have developed experiential “technologies”, techniques and […] Read More

2002: Is Reality a Simulation Game?

by Francois Tremblay (e-mail: FTremblay@liberator.net) [October 9th, 2002] Various schools of thought have proposed the idea that our world is mere appearance, and that there is some kind of underlying mystical truth that can explain everything. “[I]t is probable that we are part of the simulations of the human species from the future: we are nothing but a reproduction of the state of Earth as programmed by the real, technologically-advanced humans.” For example, religious mystics propose that it is the supernatural that is the true reality, meditators propose the absence of thought as a profoundly significant state of being, Idealist philosophers propose a “realm of ideas” which is the true reality, promoters of Near-Death Experiences propose that the NDE is the higher reality, and so on. Any idea or experience which diverges from daily experience is inevitably pointed as the answer. While it is not part of this extreme, […] Read More

2012: A Separate Reality

You think about yourself too much and that gives you a strange fatigue that makes you shut off the world around you and cling to your arguments. A light and amenable disposition is needed in order to withstand the impact and the strangeness of the knowledge I am teaching you. Feeling important makes one heavy, clumsy, and vain. To be a man of knowledge one needs to be light and fluid. One has to reduce to a minimum all that is unnecessary in one’s life. Once you decide something put all your petty fears away. Your decision should vanquish them. I will tell you time and time again, the most effective way to live is as a warrior. Worry and think before you make any decision, but once you make it, be on your way free from worries or thoughts; there will be a million other decisions still awaiting […] Read More

2012: Joseph P Farrell – Nazis, Giants and Cosmic Elites

Here is an excellent video from Project Camelot, a good resource for all of your alternative perspective ideas about the world now, in the past and into the future. Project Camelot is interviewing Joseph P Farrell, who has produced a very impressive body of work that would be labeled “alternative history” in the bookstore. I recently read one of Joseph Farrell’s more recent books – Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men: The Surviving Elites of the Cosmic War and Their Hidden Agenda, and I enjoyed it and wanted to find out more about his research so I decided to look for a video interview. The video is not all that new and when I heard what the topic of the video was, the Nazi Bell, I was not all that excited (I’ve seen too many boring History programs about Nazi military escapades) but decided to give it a try because […] Read More

2014: Precognition: Science Shows How Our Body Reacts To Events Up To 10 Seconds Before They Happen

Over the past few decades a significant and noteworthy amount of scientific research has emerged contributing to the notion that human precognition could very well be real, and that we all might possess this potential -amongst various other extended human capacities. Thanks to the research by various scientists presented in this article, extended human capacities are beginning to exit the realm of superstitious thinking, delusion and irrationality and find their way into the world of confirmed phenomena. Claims of precognition or “future telling” have occurred “throughout human history in virtually every culture and period.” (source) It’s not hard to see why we are so fascinated with these concepts, they are embedded in popular culture today throughout various outlets such as movies -which can sometimes be counter productive given the fact that they are merged with fictional stories and events. Similar to the extraterrestrial phenomenon, the validity of these concepts […] Read More

2015: Neuroscientist Describes Documented Cases Of Humans “Flying” Outside Of Their Body

Scientific knowledge is expanding every day at an exponential rate, and the implications of new developments, particularly those that challenge the current framework regarding the true nature of reality, are far-reaching indeed. One area that continues to become a focal point of study for many physicians and neuroscientists is the relationship between mind, brain, and consciousness. Is the brain a receiver of consciousness, or is consciousness a product of the brain? Although science has not yet shown with absolute certainty that consciousness exists separately from our physical organs, there is a lot of evidence (both anecdotal and scientific) which indicates that consciousness is something completely separate – that it continues on even after we have deceased, that it is and can be a separate “thing” from the brain. There seems to be a lot of consistency when it comes to studies that have examined this issue. New findings within this field are rapidly […] Read More

2016: Physicists Examine Consciousness and Conclude the Universe is ‘Spiritual, Immaterial and Mental’

When we look at the weird and wacky world of quantum physics, it can be hard to make sense of some of the things scientists have bee observing over the years “We choose to examine a phenomenon which is impossible, absolutely impossible, to explain in any classical way, and which has in it the heart of quantum mechanics. In reality, it contains the only mystery.” Richard Feynman, a Nobel laureate of the twentieth century (Radin, Dean. Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences In A Quantum Reality. New York, Paraview Pocket Books, 2006) One thing is for certain, ‘consciousness,’ or, factors association with consciousness (observation, measurement, thinking, intention) have a direct correlation with what we perceive to be our physical material world. Max Plack, a physicist who originated quantum theory, regarded consciousness as “fundamental,” and matter as “derivative from consciousness.” He said that “we cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that […] Read More
