Nature, Agriculture, Erosion, Topography and the Natural Reality Discussed

Nature       Trackback
Many folks do not understand the urgency of our nation’s water supply or the issues concerning soil void of nutrients. These are serious problems for agriculture, drinking water, and we are slowly polluting our civilizations around the world, the runoff is going into the sea and causing a terrible problem. Saltwater intrusion and empty aquifers, along with rivers and lakes depleted are of grave concern. But what can be done?

An interesting case study is the Ventura County, CA coastal area, where they pumped out too much water and salt water intrusion from the ocean filled all the fresh water wells with salt water, destroying the crops and soil. Bummer there is like 50 feet of top soil there, probably the best Strawberries in the World were grown there, full of rich nutrients. So, they diverted river water into the underground aquifers and after 10-years things are back to normal, but some fear they still pump out too much ground water.

The Mississippi River Mouth is a problem, once it was a huge river delta teaming with life and nutrients, however, when you channel that level of water flow it acts like a Jacuzzi jet blasting away anything there. Being a pilot I study erosion topography when I fly, you know as a hobby, you can see the changes and it’s obvious we have a problem out there.

Erosion, water flows, and all these things can be put back to their natural states, and we can create natural states elsewhere; I believe it’s all fixable? As I study US Droughts, weather, erosion, water flows, nature etc, it seems that we are making obvious mistakes as we try to force human views onto the natural patterns, and thus, we end up with the law of unintended consequences. We need better policies.

What is Reality in Physics?

Reality used to be a concept dealt with by philosophy and not science. This was changed by Galileo, when he divided physical phenomena into two classes. The first of these, what he called the “primary qualities”, were suitable for scientific treatment and analysis, because they did not depend on the presence of a person. This independent existence freed them from the vagaries of individual observations Such subjective observations could be affected by health, ability to concentrate and a host of other personal factors, which affected the “secondary qualities” and made them unfit for scientific study. These secondary qualities did require the presence of a person and applied, in Galileo’s opinion, to all observations made by the senses of smell, touch, hearing and taste.

Galileo’s primary qualities were very few in number and Rene Descartes later reduced them to just two, matter and motion. These qualities were independent of people. Their reality was therefore objective. On the other hand, the secondary qualities, which needed the presence of a person to register them through the senses mentioned, were subjective. These two realities, subjective and objective, were deeply embedded in philosophical traditions, dating back thousands of years to the ancient Greeks and beyond. In these philosophies, all physical phenomena in our world of nature, which needed our senses for their perception, were of merely subjective reality. This reality was considered very inferior to the objective reality of the divine world, which of course was beyond the direct perception of our ordinary senses and thus also beyond the need of our human presence to exist. This divine world was not just a world of religious belief in these philosophies. It was a world of real existence and the realm of all “true” knowledge. It could be accessed by people specially trained for such contact, such as oracles, seers and mystics.

Galileo’s revolutionary thinking can now be fully appreciated. He had the audacity to take the concept of objective reality, as a property of the divine world only, and tack it on to his two primary qualities of matter and motion, which were properties of the lowly world of nature. Matter and motion were now the exclusive subjects of his new science, physics. They formed the basis of all Newton’s great synthesis of natural laws. They were the foundation concepts of a philosophy, scientific determinism, and of a model of the world that ruled physics until the 1920s, when it had to be abandoned.

The consequences of Galileo’s actions in these matters were quite extraordinary and have lasted to this day. While he himself was careful to limit objective reality to only his two primary qualities of matter and motion, as time went on scientists began to treat all natural phenomena, perceived by all our senses, as having an independent existence of their own. This allowed them to postulate that the history of nature was quite independent of the history of man, so that it could be extrapolated to the earliest periods of this earth’s existence, long before the appearance on the scene of man. It may seem extraordinary to us today, but this method of perceiving the geological history of the world is no older than Galileo. Before him, at least in Christian times, the world started in 4004 BC. There was also another consequence. This independent matter was now perceived as the primal substance, from which everything else that has appeared on earth, such as life, feeling and consciousness, has evolved by means of purely natural, random processes.

Objective reality disappeared from physics in the 1920s, when scientific determinism, based on the total predictability of cause and effect, had to be abandoned as it no longer represented the facts discovered by the new branches of physics, especially quantum mechanics, which required the inclusion of Heisenberg’s Principle of Uncertainty. For the last eighty or more years, therefore, physics has operated on the basis of subjective reality only. It no longer recognizes Galileo’s division of natural phenomena into two classes: for modern physics, all perceived natural phenomena are of a subjective nature, because they require the apparatus of our senses. Galileo’s attempt to make some “qualities” of matter objective has simply been ignored by modern physics, which is not interested in philosophical errors of hundreds of years ago. As the divine world was eliminated by science, so its objective reality has also been removed. In this, modern physics has recognized that Galileo made a fundamental error when saying that his primary qualities did not need the presence of a person. Matter and motion still had to be perceived in order to be dealt with by science. The sense of sight was therefore involved and the sense of sight is still a physical sense and thus subjective.

All these developments in physics have left loose ends dangling about. If matter is now no longer considered objective, must we not alter our assumptions about the very early eons of the earth’s existence, before the appearance of man? Philosophically speaking, how does the absence of objective reality affect us in our relationship with nature? If we only accept subjective reality now in our science, does this not mean that we must regard ourselves as the creators of the world? Only to the creator is everything around him subjective, because he himself has created everything! Then again, if matter is merely a subjective appearance, of which we are aware only through our sense perceptions, can it really be the primal, independent substance from which everything else has been derived?

All these musings about the nature of reality are beginning to be important because of recent developments in particle physics. What, for instance, can be said about the reality of a string particle? This particle is defined as the ultimate, irreducible matter particle. It is also defined as having only one dimension, length. Our sense structure is not built to perceive an object of only one dimension anywhere in our physical world. So we cannot call the string particle subjectively real, like other physical phenomena. But if matter is considered to be subjectively real, should not the origin of matter, the ultimate, irreducible particle of matter, also be real? Here again, the absence of objective reality in physics today is becoming a problem.

Subjective reality is becoming interesting to physics in another line of investigation being followed. The old question, posed by Bishop Berkeley and others, about the existence of the world if we are not there to perceive it, can now be investigated scientifically. The results of two such investigations have recently been published, one conducted in Japan and the other in Canada. Both used photons as the particles being observed and then not observed. The last part was achieved mathematically by not completing the procedures under observation. The results in both cases indicate that the world does indeed continue to exist when we are not observing it, but some of the results were nevertheless startling. Some of these photons, which should have been somewhere, simply disappeared. The Japanese experimenter called this result “preposterous”.

Galileo’s Shadow is a book that deals with these conflicting concepts of reality within physics. It suggests a way to reincorporate objective reality back into science, as well as many other problems in physics that are becoming increasingly urgent. One of the aims of the book is to make physics accessible again to a broader audience, where it used to be in the age of Newton, when ordinary educated people could understand its broad concepts even if they were not mathematical geniuses.

By: Werner Thurau

About the Author:
Werner Thurau thinks physics must be everyone’s concern because this science can now destroy the world. It should not be discussed only by a small group of specialists in abstruse mathematics. For that reason, he wrote “Galileo’s Shadow”, which deals historically and philosophically with physics, right up to the most modern string theory. This book is written for the general educated public. The concepts of reality were important to Galileo and have recently become important again in physics, which is the reason for this article. Further articles will deal with other aspects of physics, as covered in “Galileo’s Shadow”.

Some of the conclusions on that book will be considered radical and should lead to a good and necessary discussion on the future of physics. Find out more at http://www.galileoshadow.com

Thought Power – Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

Thought power is the key to creating your reality. Everything you perceive in the physical world has its origin in the invisible, inner world of your thoughts and beliefs. To become the master of your destiny, you must learn to control the nature of your dominant, habitual thoughts. By doing so you will be able to attract into your life anything you desire with exact precision as you come to know the Truth that your thoughts create your reality.

For Every Outside Effect There is an Inner Cause: Every effect you see in your outside or physical world has a very specific cause which has its origin in your inner or mental world. This is the essence of thought power. Put another way, the conditions and circumstances of your life are as a result of your thoughts and beliefs. James Allen said it best when he said “circumstances do not make a man, they reveal him”. Every aspect of your life, from the state of your finances to the state of your health and your relationships, is accurately revealing your thoughts and your beliefs.

It’s an Inside Job: Most people have it back to front, believing that they feel or think a certain way because of their circumstances, not knowing the truth that it is their thought power that is creating those very circumstances, whether wanted or unwanted. By internalizing and applying this Truth, that your thoughts create your reality, you will grant yourself the power to create the changes you desire to see manifest in your life. Reality creation is an inside job.

Your Thought Power is Limitless: There is a single, intelligent Consciousness that pervades the entire Universe – all powerful, all knowing, all creative and present everywhere at the same time – the Universal Mind. Your mind is part of this One Universal Mind and since your thoughts are a product of your mind, it follows that your thought power too is limitless. Once you truly understand that your mind is one with the Single Source of All Power and that this power is within you, you will have found the only true source of infinite power for which nothing is impossible and impossible is nothing. Know that thought power comes from within. All power comes from within.

Your Thoughts are Alive: The greatest mystics and teachers that have walked the Earth have told us that everything is energy. This fundamental Truth has now been undeniably confirmed by modern science. Your thoughts too are energy. William Walker Atkinson told us that “where mind is static energy, thought is dynamic energy – two phases of the same thing” and Charles Haanel went on to say that “thought power is the vibratory force formed by converting static mind into dynamic mind”. Your thoughts are alive. Each time you entertain a specific thought, you emit a very specific, corresponding frequency or energy vibration.

What Frequency Are You On: The basic premise of the Law of Attraction is that like energy attracts like energy. You attract to yourself those things and circumstances that are in vibrational harmony with your dominant frequency, which is itself determined by your dominant mental attitude, habitual thoughts and beliefs. Mike Dooley, one of the presenters of the movie The Secret, fittingly suggests if you want to know what a thought looks like, just look around you. Keep in mind his three words “thoughts are things”.

Not All Thoughts Are Created Equal: The attractive power of any particular thought is determined by how often you have that thought and by the strength of the feelings or emotions associated with it. The more energy you give to a particular thought, the greater its power to attract its corresponding circumstance into your physical world through the Law of Attraction. Your one-off, passing thoughts do not have the same creative power as your habitual thoughts and beliefs. Remember, that it is of little use to entertain positive thoughts for just a short burst of time each day if you then proceed to think negative or unwanted thoughts for the rest of the day. Your reality is the sum total of all your thoughts.

Use Thought Power to Change Your Life: It is your subconscious mind that is the store house of your deep-seated beliefs and programmes. To change your circumstances and attract to yourself that which you desire, you must learn to programme and re-programme your subconscious mind. Since your mind is one with the all-powerful Universal Mind, the potential power of your subconscious mind is also limitless. The most effective and practical way to programme your subconscious mind for success in all areas of your life is to learn the simple process of creative visualization. It is the technique underlying reality creation, making use of thought power to consciously imagine, create and attract that which you desire. Your imagination is the engine of your thoughts. It converts your thought power into mental images.

Become Aware of Your Thoughts But Not Obsessed: It is important that you learn to be aware of your habitual thoughts and to appropriately adjust them so as to maintain an overall positive mental attitude. However, be careful not to become obsessed with every thought that enters your mind as this would be equally counter-productive, if not more so, than not being aware of them at all. Remember that to obsess over your negative, unwanted thoughts, is to give them power and as the saying goes, what you resist persists. So instead of resisting any of your negative thoughts, simply learn to effortlessly cancel them by replacing them as they arise.

Instantly Replace Unwanted Thoughts: To instantly neutralize the power of a negative thought, calmly and deliberately replace it with its opposite, positive equivalent. For instance if you think to yourself “I’m not good enough, I will never succeed”, mentally replace the thought with “I am good enough and success comes to me easily”. You can also use the “cancel cancel” technique made famous by the Silva Method. Each time you catch yourself thinking an unwanted thought, mentally tell yourself and the Universe “cancel cancel” and immediately follow it up with a positive statement.

Tame Your Dominant Thoughts and the Random Will Follow: It is estimated that the average person has between 12,000 and 70,000 thoughts a day. This is evidence enough to suggest that your goal should not be to control every thought. It is your dominant thoughts and beliefs that you must learn to bring under your conscious control as they are what largely determine your mental attitude. As you do, you will find your random thoughts themselves becoming more positive and more deliberate.

The following words of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha perfectly capture the essence of thought power: “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”

In a nutshell, your life is the perfect mirror of your thoughts, beliefs and dominant mental attitude. Whether you realise it or not you are already creating your reality through your thought power. Every effect you see in your outside world has its original cause within you – no exceptions. To gain access to the greatest creative power at your disposal, you must learn to control the nature of your habitual thoughts and to align yourself with the One Source of All Power of which you are a part. Your thoughts create your reality – know, internalize and apply this Truth and you will see your life transform in miraculous ways.

Hidden Layers of Reality

Who are we? What is this reality that we’re part of? Why are we here at all? These questions lie at the depths of our being, and their answers – should we ever find them – would dictate the very purpose of our existence.

As a species we have evolved from single-celled organisms into beings that can travel in space, probe the very building blocks of our bodily nature and the universe we inhabit, and create works of art capable of moving us to the core. And yet for all our tremendous mastery of knowledge there appears to be a boundary that we cannot penetrate.

The 18/19th century mathematician Pierre-Simon Laplace postulated a super-intelligent “demon” having knowledge of the position and momentum of every particle in the universe. Laplace’s demon also possessed some kind of super computer able to process this vast dataset, thus availing it of the universe’s entire future and past. This presented a gloomy scenario for mankind, as it completely removed the role of free-will. It also opened a can of moral worms with regard to law, crime and punishment (how could someone be punished for committing crimes that were predetermined?)

Then, in the 20th century, along came quantum physics and with it Werner Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. In a nutshell, Heisenberg showed that Laplace’s demon was theoretically impossible, since we can never obtain precise information of the simultaneous position and momentum of any particle. Heisenberg essentially demonstrated a limit to scientific understanding.

Furthermore, the experimentally well-proven quantum theory reveals an inherent randomness in the behavior of the most elementary particles that form the material realm. The great scientist Albert Einstein’s response was that “God does not play dice with the universe.”

Despite the overwhelming evidence for the validity of quantum theory our innate experience, and instinct, tends to concord with Einstein. Our experience of the world is based on deterministic cause and effect; we push the switch, the light comes on… But can both views be right? And can this paradox offer a glimpse into the true nature of reality?

There is a mass of anecdotal evidence of paranormal phenomena, ie happenings that transcend the known laws of science. Raise the subject in just about any gathering and you’ll likely find someone who’s experienced something they couldn’t quite explain. These experiences extend throughout history and across cultures. And interest in the technological information age remains as strong as ever, with a Google search on the term paranormal returning no fewer than 21,400,000 matches.

Might it be such experiences offer a glimpse into reality sufficient to keep us motivated, but not quite enough to encourage abandonment of our earthly mission to return “home” prematurely?

And might the more enlightened beings such as Jesus, Buddha, Mohamed… have enjoyed certain knowledge rather than occasional glimpses of ultimate reality, in order to educate the rest of us via the leading Spiritual models (religions) existing today? Indeed, might these (and other teachers) be different incarnations of the same benevolent entity? The late Pope John Paul said “Though the routes taken may be different, there is but a single goal to which is directed the deepest aspiration of the human Spirit.”

Spiritualist mediums often speak of the earth and Spirit realms co-existing, but at different vibrations (the earth is lower and Spirit higher). Communication between the living and the departed takes place when the medium raises his/her vibration and the Spirit communicator lowers theirs, to the degree that both become aware of the other.

Modern physics has two well-established theories – relativity, which explains what happens on a very big scale, ie the behavior of the cosmos; and quantum mechanics, which explains the very small. Both theories contradict the “common sense” view of reality, and both have striking parallels with descriptions of reality given by ancient Spiritual philosophies.

The problem is that relativity and quantum physics differ, ie the set of laws explaining the very small doesn’t apply to the very large and vice versa. Thus the quest of physics since Einstein has been to find a grand, unified theory that combines relativity and quantum mechanics into an explanation of everything. Though no accepted theory has yet emerged, one of the strongest candidates is superstring theory, which relies on multiple dimensions existing beyond the perceived four of space-time. Might the highest of these dimensions equate to what, over the centuries and across traditions, has been called Spirit?

Whether science will ever produce a single theory that explains everything is debatable. But the fact science is moving to accept multiple dimensions beyond those forming the physical realm in accordance with traditional Spiritual teaching could be significant. A multi-dimensional model could accommodate both the material world we inhabit and the Spiritual plane from which we emanate. The increasing convergence between science and various Spiritual traditions suggests the reality we perceive is but part of all that exists. And this part is ever influenced by events within the higher parts, which in turn are primarily influenced by Spirit.

Reality Check

For Albert Einstein, arguably the greatest physicist of the twentieth century, everything in the physical world had to have an independent reality.  That is, it had to exist independently of any observation or measurement of it.  This applied to large objects as well as to particles, like the electron.  This concept of an independent reality of the physical world originated with Galileo in the seventeenth century.  He did two things which affected all subsequent science.  First, he removed the entire divine world of Greek and medieval philosophy from science.  Up to then, this had been a real world, though one which was quite independent of human participation.  Its reality, therefore, had been objective, while the reality of the physical world, which did depend on human perception through the senses, was of subjective reality.  After Galileo, the upper, divine world became one of belief only.

That left only the physical world for investigation.  Galileo agreed with the Greek philosophers that the subjective nature of sense impressions made them so dependent on purely personal factors that they were unsuitable for any scientific investigation.  This led to his second fundamental change:  he divided all natural phenomena into two classes, or sets of “qualities”.  His “secondary qualities” included the majority of what we perceive in nature, namely all that is known through the senses of smell, touch, taste and hearing.  He felt that all these perceptions needed the presense of sense organs in human beings, so that they were hopelessly subjective and therefore had to be excluded from science.  That left only his “primary qualities” as subjects fit for science.  These primary qualities were very few in number and Rene Descartes later reduced them to just two, matter and motion.  For Galileo, the matter and motion of objects persisted even without a human presence.  He therefore felt that their reality was objective, even though they belonged to the physical world.

Although Galileo focused his new science of physics on just matter and motion, he thought that these two qualities alone could unlock all the secrets of nature and explain completely the behavious of all objects.  Later thinkers agreed with him.  Descartes famously said, “give me matter and motion and I will create the universe”.  All Newton’s laws involved only matter and motion.

As time went on, physicists began to ascribe this independent, objective reality to everything physical, not just the matter and motion aspects of objects.  By the end of the nineteenth century, for anything to be considered “real” it had to be physical and the only reality was the physical world.  This exactly explains Einstein’s feelings and assumptions.  He, the observer, was quite independent of the object observed, and his observations or measurements of the object did not influence or interfere with the independent existence of that object.

Most of us feel the same way as Einstein, in fact this whole argument up to now might seem to be belaboring the obvious.  So here comes the point:  modern quantum physics has shown that Einstein was wrong!  There is no objective world of independently existing objects.  All natural phenomena are perceived through our senses and thus have no more than a subjective reality.  They are appearances, not realities.  Galileo had made a fundamental philosophical error in assigning an objective reality to his “primary qualities”: he ignored the fact that you still needed the sense of sight to perceive matter and motion, so that these were just as subjective in nature as anything else perceived through any of the other senses.  He was led to make this error by his genuine feeling that he, the observer, no longer had the kind of connections that the medieval man felt with observed nature.  There was no more unseen but felt participation with the processes in the natural world.  Galileo, the first modern man, saw nature analytically, as a specimen on a slab, to be examined with a view to finding a mathematical explanation for what was going on.  As he put it: “The language of nature is mathematics”.  Later thinkers, like Descartes and Francis Bacon, agreed with him.  Newton’s laws were mathematical expressions of processes involving matter and motion which, to him, were enough to lay bare all the secrets of nature. 

Later developments in physics in the early part of the twentieth century, when relativity and quantum mechanics showed the limitations of Newtonian physics, never addressed Galileo’s errors specifically, so that even a luminary like Albert Einstein (together with most ordinary people) still felt that the world had to be independently real.  What finally broke the spell was the increasing dominance of quantum mechanics, a branch of modern physics that Einstein himself, ironically, helped to found.  Its most vocal proponent, Niels Bohr, was engaged in a decades long argument with Einstein and the final proofs, giving Bohr the victory, did not emerge until the 1970s, after the death of both of these friendly rivals.

The implications of quantum mechanics are so outrageous and counterintuitive that physicists for the most part have ignored them and concentrated instead on the highly successful mathematical explanations of events and their experimental proofs.  Quantum mechanics is the most successful system in physics today.  None of its predictions has ever been proved wrong.  It has become the bedrock of the modern science.  Yet it states flatly that observation not only marks the behaviour of the object observed, it also brings it into existence.  As one eminent quantum cosmologist put it:  “No microscopic property is a property until it is an observed property”.  Before the observation, there was no object, but after the observation the object existed for everyone else also.  Furthermore, quantum theory states that events in one location can instantaneously “influence” events in another, even one far away, say in another galaxy.  This runs counter to the accepted truism that nothing in the universe can be transmitted faster than the speed of light. 

It is clear that these developments in quantum mechanics have a devastating impact on our sense of reality.  Werner Heisenberg (the author of thePrinciple of Indeterminacy) put it this way:  ” In the experiments about atomic events we have to do with things and facts that are just as real as any phenomena in daily life.  But the atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts.”

But the “things” or facts of daily life that Heisenberg refers to are merely accumulations of enormous quantities of elementary particles.  If these particles are not real, how can the “things” of which they are composed be real?   It is clear that the “reality” which Heisenberg refers to is the same as Einstein’s “reality”, that is the independent reality of physical objects.

If our observations are as important as quantum theory states, it is clear that any explanation of events in the physical world comes up against our consciousness, if we are trying to explain what is going on, that is to find the meaning of events.  No mere interpretation of quantum theory can avoid the encounter with consciousness.  As another thinker put it: “Useful as it is under everyday circumstances to say that the world exists “out there” independent of us, that view can no longer be upheld.  There is a strange sense in which this is a ‘participatory universe’.”

All these conclusions and all this language of the latest quantum mechanical musings is beginning to sound eerily familiar.  To start with, Galileo’s worldview (still reflected by Einstein), has now been decisively overturned by quantum mechanics.  Before Galileo, the Greek worldview prevailed, right through the Middle Ages.  This worldview was highly “participatory”, with man and nature connected in many ways.  The latest physics is now returning to this view.

Modern physics has also overturned other Galilean axioms, like the one saying that mathematics is the language of nature.  The Platonic view of mathematics was that is was purely a construct of the human mind, without any outside reality.  This is once more the view of modern physics, which maintains that a hypothesis, no matter how many times it is proved right, will always remain nothing more than a hypothesis, which might be overturned the next day by new facts or arguments.

What we are seeing is that modern physics is showing a very complete agreement not with Galileo, the founder of the science, but with the very Greek traditions which Galileo was at such pains to overthrow in the seventeenth century.  For the Greeks, all physical phenomena, perceivable through our senses, were not independent (that is objective) realities but merely subjective appearances.  Using different language, modern physics agrees with this position. 

Greek thinking about these “appearances” also included the concept that they were the “actual forms”, on earth, representing the “potential forms”, existing in the immaterial, objective world of the divine.  The subjective, physical world had its origin in this objective, immaterial world.  Heisenberg’s use of the word “potentialities” to describe the microscopic world, which is not “real”, is telling.

Physics has tried to find the origin of matter within our world of nature.  For hundreds of years it has looked for the ultimate, irreducible matter particle, this origin of matter, by dividing matter into ever smaller particles.  Classically, the atom was thought to be this ultimate particle.  It was not.  The proton was not.  Finally, it was realized that the size of a particle really depended on the amount of energy that could be directed at it, to smash it into even smaller particles.  The end of this process was not within this world of nature because, at a certain energy level, all matter and force particles would merge into an undifferentiated stream of energy.  This realization led to the concept of the string particle, as the ultimate matter particle, by definition.  The string particle is a one-dimensional particle which, as such, cannot exist in our phenomenal world of nature.  If it is to be the origin of matter, however, it must be “real” in some fashion, which suggests a further convergence with Greek thought.  If the string particle were to be the objectively real origin of matter, in an immaterial world, it would fit well into a long-established philosophical framework, with which modern physics agrees in every other way.

The other outrageous results of quantum theory also become manageable if the concept of both a subjective reality is used for the physical world of appearances and also one of objective reality for the immaterial world of origins and “potential forms”.  This objective world could then be thought of as sustaining the physical world of appearances in our absence, without having to worry about what role our consciousness has to play in the creative process. Within such an expanded frame of reference, physics could perform its functions of dealing with the world in a practical manner without constantly bumping up against contradictory absurdities.

About the Author:
Werner Thurau was born in December 1927, in Havana, Cuba. In 1929, his family returned to his father’s native Germany. He spent the entire 1930s in Berlin, but came to England in 1939 and was then further educated in that country, ending with an engineering degree from London University. His further career took him all over the world on technical projects, moving first to Mexico and then to the United States, where he lives now. At school in England, he was exposed early in life to the world of ideas. Some of his teachers were friends of C.S. Lewis and Lewis’s Oxford group, the Inklings, and his father was a philosophical bookworm. Werner combined this background with a lifelong interest in physics, especially modern physics after it breached the atomic barrier. This interest extended to Galileo, the founder of our age, and what made him so different from others of his time, as well as to the effect physics has had on other related sciences, such as evolutionary theory (and its polar opposite, creationism). He came to see that the latest developments in physics bring in subjects not normally associated with a book on that science, such as consciousness, reality concepts and even ethics.

Concepts of Reality

Is personal awareness of reality a physical, a religious or a spiritual experience? One’s personal awareness of reality is at the same time, personal, societal, religious and a spiritual experience. Personal awareness of reality starts at one’s particular situation of birth and with one’s social capabilities received at birth. At birth one’s senses start operating. The sensation of touch and pain starts while the new body is progressing through the birth canal, followed by sensations of chill, hearing and sight. The sense interaction of one’s body with others starts while it is handled by those assisting in the birth or by the mother herself. It is a fairly common sensation for all creatures of the mammalian variety; but after birth one’s interpersonal activity begins to rapidly change and become more individual through interaction with mother, father, family, friends and the social and cultural climate in which one is born. This individualization is strongly demarcated by association of the parents to special groups such as religious groups, ethnic groups, and or humanist groups, followed by cultural and societal groups that include basic, intermediate and special and/or advanced training.

Each group of contact a child is immersed in makes the person’s reality more special and individualized from other children in other regions having different social, religious and cultural standards and settings. It makes a big difference whether one is born on a boat that is not only one’s house but also the family’s means of transportation and business or whether one is born and brought up in a mountainous region or in an inner-city social climate. Therefore, the reality each person envisions or is aware of as an adult is uniquely personal. We can thus be fairly certain that one’s personal reality is of a physical, religious and cultural kind.

Why does one’s awareness of reality have a physical component? That is easy. Say, a child is born numb, blind and deaf. The child is not even aware that it has entered a physical realm of being. It cannot ascertain that it has left the birth canal. It does not know whether it is a fetus or a child. It also makes a big difference if the child misses just the sense of sight or the sense of hearing. Its overall sense of perceiving its environment is greatly inhibited by the inability to hear or see, and maybe, because of it, some other senses are heightened in sensitivity.

The components of religion and culture in awareness of reality can also be easily verified. Religion is most of all forced indoctrination into a certain belief system. The religious setting is thus of a purely virtual kind. One cannot get physically in contact with the main premises of the belief system. They must be accepted as belief systems. Though religious belief can have physical consequences. Christians may happily be enjoying a ham sandwich, but Muslims, and maybe people of the Jewish and Hindu persuasion, may dump such a sandwich in the garbage when received–the taste of ham and pork in general is never realized and is missing in their understanding of reality. General education also is a system of severe indoctrination. One learns things in school that may be true or not, physically or spiritually, depending on the cultural, scientific and religious misconceptions of the authorities on topics learned. One’s indoctrination into a national setting is also mostly of the fictional kind and in America this indoctrination changes from generation to generation (every five years or so). Most of what a grown person knows consists of clever schemes of fictional indoctrination.

Our knowledge of science finds its beginning in mere suppositions/axioms on which the proofs of other suppositions rest. These suppositions are accepted as truth because they almost always work according to the laws defined on the basis of such suppositions. The more one knows it seems the more one is harnessed by laws, demarcations and regions where things will work and where not. All implements of use we manage to fashion are defined by inquiry, deduction and philosophy. These implements are not part of our natural understanding of reality but are forced into our awareness of reality through indoctrination. Whether these implements consist of the heaviest materials or are mere gossamer path of mental thought, they all are of the type of virtual reality that we have adopted as if part of the entire sphere of physical reality–and in such topics of science and religion, the adopted sense of reality is different for a doctor in science or theology and a housekeeper forced out of school to earn money for the family. So everyone has a different understanding of reality. Yet, we all accept a huge part of reality as integral: the physical universe. It can be observed and measured, analyzed and modeled. But is what we understand of the physical universe real as seen from a spiritual point of view?

As human beings we are forbidden to look into this matter because our senses and our brains lock us tightly in the physical arena. My sense of touch and sight convince me that a drinking glass is for real. Is that a correct conclusion of a sense-oriented observation in spirit? The existence of the glass is merely verified by senses that can only get in touch with or observe material things of a physical nature. Could it be that the substance of the physical universe and the substance of our senses were designed in a virtual setting to interact with each other in such a manner as to give these virtual physical creatures the idea that the things they observe seem to have a basis in a real-like physical universe? Could the entire interactive setup of creatures and physical universe be a working, interactive spiritual model or interactive display into which our souls, for some unperceived reason, have been mentally wired or cast? If so, are these souls aware in spirit or are they in some hypnotic state? Is their attention in the physical universe of a purely unconscious mental nature? Believe it or not, the Bible, and in particular, Jesus gives us the correct answer. If our understanding of physical reality is nothing more than a virtually perceived spiritual scheme may we then also presume with a high level of certainty that the kind of spirit that designed, created and continues to suspend the universe is of a virtual type also? What is the criteria of a virtual reality? Is a virtual reality not based on certain make belief supposition, like the suppositions we needed to materialize the physical realm from certain sense-derived perceptions of the body? The sneaky thing about our perceptions of our environment is that they are generally shared by all other creatures. I like to compare that with an instrument we are all familiar with, breath analyzers. Every breath analyzer is calibrated to sense alcohol or a drug in exactly the same manner. Analyzers are fabricated things. Since our bodies all produce, more or less, the same interpretations from sense detections received, are not our bodies a mass produced kind of virtual machine just like a breath analyzer? The analyzer does not naturally belong in the physical realm, but it always just has had a potential to exist in the physical universe.

My next question is: Is the potential for a manufactured material object in physical reality for real or is it of a virtual nature? When does a virtual concept of the implement seem to convert from a virtual apparition to a solid working physical object; or, was there an actual conversion at all? Can the working analyzer still be considered a virtual object? Is the conversion from virtual potential to real object just caused by a wrinkle produced in our brains? For similar reasons I question whether hetero- and ********** attractions in humans (and also in animals) are virtual or real experiences. They are actuated by the mere flow of hormones in the animal-type body. The hormone flows are triggered by mere virtual control mechanisms that are part of the growing and functioning body (like the functioning of the breath analyzer) We cannot help but to smell, see, hear, touch and taste. We are forced to do so. We lack the ability, unless we forcibly disconnect our senses like receiving drugs, pinching the nose, etc. to have a choice. Sexual attractions and aversions are caused by some biological clock that is differently programmed but operates in the same manner for each species and race. These time clocks must be of a virtual nature like programs on our computers that control functions in the computer but also beyond the confines of the computer like keeping the temperature in a building or a swimming pool constant.

If human animals are mere spiritual virtual perceptions in a virtual spiritual display, so must be all creatures on earth and so must be the system of physical reality itself. All animal and plant creatures must be animated by exactly the same kind of souls as in humans. What criteria are the same and what criteria can possibly be different between human souls and animal souls? It seems to me that human animals are of a higher order, a newer order, than creatures in raw nature. What can newness of soul have to do with the difference between souls associated with humans and those associated with creatures in brute nature? I believe that all (identical) souls are associated with creatures and things in the physical universe because they were cast out somehow from spirit. Spirit is the true reality. Souls in spirit must have believed a lie about the realm of their native truth, so they lost interest in their native god and also in the realm provided to them in that realm of native truth. Souls having believed a lie have no place to be, so they can only exist in a virtual reality constructed while souls lie in a spiritual type of lie-induced coma. They cannot be aware of the spiritual environment because of a system of lies believed about it.

A physical person in a coma is in a state of mind adopted by that person after it went through a very traumatic event and it refuses to be mentally present again in physical reality; so it adopted a state of a permanent dream environment as an alternate reality to be in. The person refuses to wake up although all the systems in the body indicate that there is no reason for it not to wake up. The traumatic trauma that caused the coma is only an isolated event and can be considered an anomaly or a mere virtual event in the ordinary existence of human life. The souls in comatose humans have made a choice based on an isolated incident and refuse to take into account the general situation of life. It believed a lie about the reality of which they were a part. So the dream state it now mentally adopts is a state based on a lie believed.

If a spiritual lie believed can tumble someone away from the normal state of awareness in one’s native spiritual realm, many lies believed will tumble the believers of such lies into ever deeper states of virtual existence.

From the natural progression of things I can thus conclude that reality as perceived by physical creatures is based on the amount of lies absorbed in the mind of soul. The more systems of deceitful propaganda a soul believes the deeper it tumbles into the reality of the physical universe. The longer a soul is associated with the physical universe (and thus the more deceit it holds as truth), the more degenerate the state of the soul. It can only accept a physical existence compatible with that spiritual state of deranged mind–the mind of simpler construction such as those in animals that have lost all contact with their spiritual aspect as souls in spirit. Since there is an untold number of species and their associated races in earth, there must be an untold number of events of lies believed that correlates with each class of animal and plant life. The more lies believed and held in soul as truth the more brute type of animal is associated with that soul.

I like to bring up the nature of creatures that exist thousands of feet deep in the ocean. They can be blind or have the ability to see by the luminance of their own body. We have moles who have eyes but are blind as bats. We have moles and bats that are blind yet have eyes. Have the eyes adopted another means to sense the environment in conjunction with the ability to throw channeled beams of vibration ahead of them to locate and catch insects in flight? Are blind creatures, yet still having eyes, in a spiritual mental state of moving from that state into states where sight has become unnecessary because due to spiritual mental atrophy the eyes are eliminated altogether? Are they, henceforward, limited to only experience their surroundings and thus be aware of reality, absent the capability of sight? Is their sightlessness a necessity placed on them because of lack of light in there realms of darkness or is it a spiritual necessity because of the systems of lies believed by souls inhabiting such types of bodies? We can thus presume, by an alternate means of analysis, that a certain kind of spiritual atrophy occurs in souls when it has entered into association with the virtual physical display of reality that omits the absented sense of awareness because of lies believed about it previously held state of awareness.

The more the soul atrophies the more brute type of virtual existence it can have in earth. This atrophy probably will cause a soul, eventually, to enter the state of accepting inert material as habitation. I believe that Hindus understand that principle also, but mine comes from a place of spiritual philosophical origin. It does not come from association with belief systems that are part of the heritage of the earth. Reality in the physical sphere is a commonly accepted understanding among a set (and all kinds of different sets) of creatures as to what constitutes the environment in which they experience life.

Reality does not furnish a reason and a purpose for being. It forces from creatures an urge to continue to be. The thing that appears basic for any creature is the undefined, compelling drive to be (exist) and continue to be, at whatever cost and effort to oneself and/or others. This drive is a consequence of experiencing reality from one’s spiritual place determined by the number of systems of lies believed. We do not seem to know the reason for this drive other than that it has its origin in anxiety and fear. In order to be we must exert, channel, reflect or absorb (imbibe) power (energy of some sort). I claim that the need to manipulate power over others, and even just to elements in the environment is an expression and outworking of evil. It seems that we experience environment as given to us; but I assert that environment and all things in it, our common sense of reality, is a false belief system enforced on us from an evil spiritual source on high (the god of the universe) which sense of reality we also must enforce on each other. We enforce this system of deceit on each other simply by being a part of it and interacting with each other in it.

We, the unaware, are in effect of an enveloping virtually designed reality and we are the cause of its acceptance among other member of our society and of general nature. The source of that belief system is what we refer to as god or higher power (power is proof of evil). Belief in truth comes to souls naturally, but a belief in a system of lies is forced on us through deceit in the form of propaganda issued to us from a source we consider authority. Where there is effect there is a cause. The cause of the universe always seems hidden or is shrouded behind a cloak of respectability. When stripped from its cloak, the cause, again, is evil–a malicious system of deceit that some power of mind exerted and we adopted. Evil always comes in the disguise of an angel of light–a person just had to believe the deceit because it seemed so good and wholesome. The way I understand physical life is that it is the outworking of a curse, the reason and purpose for the curse is not any longer known to us. We seem to be thrown together by an unseen hand or power and made to compete, deceive, kill and exploit each other in the undefined compelling force to just be, and to do so with the least effort, in the greatest of comfort and at the expense of other creatures. In one way or another, we all want to be king of some small or greater hill.

I want to summarize that all truth (believed about a soul’s native realm paradise) constitutes true spiritual reality, and that lies believed about one’s naïve spiritual reality reconstitutes personal reality into a physical type of perceived virtual reality; that reality is also determined by the severity of spiritual atrophy of the soul due to the total amount of all systems of lies believed.

The Law of Attraction and ‘Success’ – What Is ‘Success’ Anyway?!

Everyone seems to strive to be ‘successful’ in life. We all look to apply the ‘Law of Attraction’ to gain ‘success’.

But what is ‘success’? What makes you successful, and what makes you a ‘failure’?

To answer this question, let’s first take a look at our world. Our societies are completely focused on our five senses of seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smelling. Our five senses are constantly stimulated. They are enticed and exploited all the time.

It is therefore no surprise that we tend to focus our minds on materialism 24 hours per day. We tend to focus all the time on big cars, big houses, lots of money in the bank, and so on.

There is nothing wrong with that in itself. Neither does this mean that being ‘spiritual’ equals being poor and living in a dump. That doesn’t make sense either. The problem is not with the ‘material’ objects themselves. I’ll get back to this later.

First, I’d like to know this… So many people want to ‘attract a new car’. But what is it with cars anyway? Somehow the car has become a symbol of status, of ‘success’. I know a number of people (even some well-known ones) who are so obsessed with their cars, they even give names to their car.

A friend of mine had a car and was really proud of it. He called this car ‘Infinity’. Another friend of mine doesn’t care the least bit about what kind of car he drives. Still, he needed to buy a car the other day to be able drive to work. But because he didn’t really care about it, he simply bought the first set of wheels that he liked even just a bit and of which he thought the price was right for him. “If I can drive to work and back with it, then that’s a great car for me”, he thought.

He bought himself a pretty old car to be honest. It certainly didn’t look that fancy. The other friend would have dubbed it a piece of junk. But this guy couldn’t care less. In fact, he could see the fun of it. In response to my other friend who called his car ‘Infinity’, this guy decided to give his car a name too. He called it ‘Finity’.

I kid you not, this is a true story. What it illustrates is the relativity of ‘status’ and ‘success’. What one person would consider being dignified, could be considered by the next person as pathetic.

Like I said, the trap is not with material objects themselves. These are just frequency patterns anyway. The problem comes when we see those objects as the ultimate goals and the very symbols of success that confirm whether we ‘made it’ in life or not.

It is for this reason that many people look to others to confirm to themselves if they are ‘doing well’ or if they are ‘successful’. When you don’t succeed in terms of big houses, big cars, big money, you are often considered as a ‘failure’, and often consider yourself as such.

The whole system thrives on consumption and the constant expansion of consumption, and the more we consume, the more we are considered to be ‘successful’. This even leads to many people borrowing more of what they don’t have and getting in even deeper trouble, simply to provide themselves the very things that should testify to others of their alleged ‘success’.

So is this the kind of ‘success’ you are looking for?

What if I told you that the real success you are looking for is not having all kinds of material stuff, but is actually called ‘happiness’?

After all, why would you want a lot of money, or a big house, or a big car? Why would you want others to approve of you? In the end it all comes down to a desire for a sense of security and happiness, and being able to live life on your own terms. The quest ends when you’re happy and fulfilled.

But when are you happy and fulfilled?

Here’s a hint from what a wise man once said:

“Money and fame do not happiness make.”

Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with having a lot of money, or being well-known, or having big cars and big houses. These are all thought fields and are just experience. The problem is that so many people get absorbed in pursuing the material ‘dream’ that they forget about why they are doing that in the first place.

I believe it was John Harricharan who said this:

“Most people are so busy trying to make a living, they forget to make a life.”

He’s right. Most people are ‘human doings’ instead of ‘human beings’.

The funny thing is that the greatest payoff from trying to get what you want through working with the ‘Law of Attraction’ comes from a state of being. It is a state of happiness, contentment and love and gratitude for what IS that gets you what you truly want.

At any rate, the greatest payoff from your attraction efforts does certainly not come from an obsession with ever more material stuff in the merry-go-round that gets faster by the day, for the sole reason to seek approval and confirmation of your ‘success’ from others, in order to compensate for a lack of self-esteem that is the cause of this obsession to begin with.

A sense of security, self-esteem and ‘success’ is found within yourself, not outside.

And the funny thing is that once you give up the obsession with possession and finally acknowledge your true self, the person who you really are deep inside, you seem to manifest what you want much more easily.

When that happens, you can enjoy all kinds of material stuff as much as you like, if that’s what you choose. You can choose to have a big car if you like. You can choose to live in a big house if that’s what you want.

The difference is that you won’t be controlled by the never-ending pursuit of these things. You won’t be ‘on the path to happiness and success’ anymore. You would just BE happy instead, and from there you will allow things to manifest instead of chasing them forever. It’s a small difference in perception, but with profound effects.

It is then that you will start to live life, instead of life living you.

So what is ‘success’?

Success, my friend, is what you define it to be.

Now go manifest your success, whatever that is for you!

The Law of Attraction and the Ultradian Rest Response

Few things are as important to ‘attraction’ (or rather your act of ‘creation’) as what some scientists call the ‘ultradian rest response’. You may have never heard of this before, but it’s one of the keys to bringing about in your life what you want to see.

You see, there is a great difference between ‘thinking’ and ‘knowing’. Thinking is a purely intellectual activity. It mainly takes place as electrochemical processes in your body and brain.

‘Knowing’ on the other hand, transcends intellect. It is what is often called ‘intuition’. Intuition is often defined as ‘immediate knowing’, without the conscious use of reasoning. There is no sequence of thoughts following up on each other leading to an outcome. It’s just there, instantly. Bang! You suddenly get it.


It appears to be stemming from a whole different source of awareness compared to the ‘rational mind’ or intellect that we tend to use so much in our lives.

In our modern societies, we find ourselves under so much pressure to ignore intuition and to rationalize everything that happens. We’d rather go with our ‘heads’ than go with our ‘hearts’. We learn that from an early age in our education system, which puts the main focus on the left part of the brain, the intellectual and analytical part.

As a consequence, if you’re like most people, you tend to ‘overrationalize’ everything. You regularly get the feeling that you want to do something, and it really makes your heart sing. But then your intellect rears its ugly head, and suppresses the ‘intuitive knowing’ you just experienced by using the limiting thoughts and emotions that have been dominating your being and thinking for long. You start to think and feel things like:

“Oh dear, who am I to think I can do that?”
“Oh my, what will my mother say?”
“Goodness, what will the boys at the bar think if I do that?”
“Dear me, my parents will get angry for not doing something with my education…”
“That can’t be right. Scientists say that this is not true. Who am I to think otherwise?”

Thoughts like this have ruled most people for all their lives and forced them into submission. The repetition that has been going on for years has created ‘habits’ to go with the ‘head’ all the time instead of the ‘heart’. The moment you have intuitive knowing and your heart starts to sing, you immediately begin to doubt it and you’re pulled back into line.

“I can’t do that, it’s not responsible. What about my job?”
“I’d love to do this, but…”
“If I could ever do this… Nah, I can’t do that. I must have gone mad.”
“What will the neighbours think?”

You’re systematically pulled in line, back to the image of artificially imposed norms of what ‘society’ or others think you are supposed to be. It is ignoring the deepest core of yourself, and the intelligence of the magnitude that you are deep inside.

When you look at it this way, it’s not a surprise that your intuition is often at odds with what you think. The intuitive knowing stems from a source that has a much greater overview, the bigger picture. It sees what the ‘knowing’ and associated action will lead to. The rational intellect always has a limited perspective that is quite likely even coloured by societal and religious ‘norms’, or ‘bad memories’ of certain events, which itself are often limited interpretations of what were actually stepping stones into a whole new reality.

Ernest Rossi, Ph.D., is an internationally renowned psychotherapist, teacher, and pioneer in the field of mind/body healing. In his book The Psychobiology of Mind/Body Healing, he describes how during an ultradian rest response your body goes into a mode that makes you more receptive to the unconscious parts of your being:

“This is the time when it is easiest to access our own intuition, your own internal imagery. Thoughts are most likely to be closer to the unconscious. This is a time when the unconscious wants all the energy it can get. If you train yourself to just watch and observe and not intrude, you are going to fall into what is called ‘reverie’ or ‘hypnagogic state’, what I call its more naturally intuitive state.”

So when do you ‘know’ instead of just ‘think’? How can you distinguish? Well, it’s largely a feeling, but Dr. Laurie Nadel gives you some hints in her book Sixth Sense: Unlocking Your Ultimate Mind Power:

“Do you find yourself losing concentration during certain times of the day? Perhaps it comes as a sudden touch of fatigue, or a subtle mental fuzziness. All of a sudden, you feel droopy. Your eyes may tear. You can’t stop yawning, or you sigh.Maybe you find yourself staring out the window, your mind far away from the tasks at hand. If somebody speaks to you, you find yourself startled by the sound of his voice. Or you don’t understand what was said the first time and ask the speaker to repeat himself.”

According to Dr. Nadel, these are signs that your body is entering the ultradian rest response. At times that this occurs, your body is most attuned to your intuition, as the four main regulatory systems of your body (endocrine system, autonomic nervous system, immune system and neuropeptides in your brain) align to the unconscious, greater levels of yourself.

The clearest memory that comes to mind of experiencing an ultradian rest response myself was during a final math exam back in high school. I had trouble with one of the questions and finally drooped away. It was like I temporarily switched to the realms of ‘no-time’, staring out of the window without being conscious of what was happening around me. Then suddenly some kind of realization kicked in, and I suddenly knew how to get on my way of solving the question that I didn’t seem to understand at first.

This is not something uncommon. Everyone experiences this all the time, probably daily. The trick is to recognize it. Even some of the greatest minds in modern history accepted the importance of intuition: “The only real valuable thing is intuition.” – Albert Einstein
It is by logic that we prove, but by intuition that we discover.” Henri Poincaré (one of France’s greatest mathematicians and theoretical physicists)

According to Dr. Nagel, ignoring the signals of the ultradian rest response or trying to suppress them can cause you to become irritable, uncomfortable, and even depressed. However, she emphasizes that if you allow them and flow with them, they can be moments of great inspiration. Here’s what she says:

“This is the best time to take a break rather than forcing yourself to push through the fatigue. You can think of it as your intuition break, time to take a deep breath, close your eyes, and allow impressions from your intuitive right hemisphere [right brain] to flow through your mind. You are working on a project and would like help from your intuition, this is the time to ask for it. It is also a good time to meditate.”

Meditation is not a must. All you need to do is trust your intuition and listen to your inspirations. True enough, you are blessed with an intellectual mind too. But it shouldn’t dominate your intuitive knowing and suppress it.

The thing is that ‘attraction’ doesn’t happen like things just falling out of the sky right on your lap. It often works through inspirations to do something or go somewhere. Your inspirations and hunches point you towards things you can do to bring about the changes in your life that you desire.

Ignore them, and you won’t ‘attract’ what you want. But follow along with them, and magic happens.

And finally, always realize this… ‘Intuitive knowing’ can be unique to the knower, which is you. What may feel good for you, doesn’t have to feel good for others. Everyone is unique. You will be inspired to do something that is best for you, and that matches what you want. That can be totally different from anyone else. Besides, not everyone wants the same thing, at least if everyone would follow their true ‘wants’, not the ‘wants’ imposed by the image of what others think you should want.

No one should judge or ridicule what another feels is good for him or her, as long as the person never seeks to impose anything on anyone else. That is the freedom of life we need, that will change everyone’s life radically, and the whole world with it.

Gotta go now. I feel an ultradian rest response coming in…

The Universal Laws and the Law of Attraction: What’s Love Got to Do With It?

These days you can hardly skim through self-improvement or self-help related information without hearing at least once about the Universal Laws, or the Spiritual Laws of the Universe, or other terminology indicating the same things.

Sometimes you bump into some real good, straight-to-the point, and ready-to-get-going information about how to apply these Universal Laws in our life to your advantage. However, the majority of the information you find is either too much, too detailed and/or too complex to start to apply it in your life right away. That’s usually the case. Or otherwise, it stems from people who hardly know what they’re talking about and consequently give you insufficient and sometimes even inaccurate information.

For example, many ‘experts’ merely focus on the Law of Attraction (one of the hottest buzzwords on the Internet today), without taking any other of the universal principles of life (or Universal Laws) into account. There are certain boundary conditions to the application of the Law of Attraction, and one of them is the focus of this article. It’s what I call, the Law of Love, just to stick to the popular ‘Law’-terminology.

As a result of the fact that few experts pay any attention to other universal principles besides the Law of Attraction, most people are not ‘achieving’, ‘manifesting’, or ‘attracting’ that much to be honest, no matter how hard they try.

How come? How on earth is that possible?! There’s so much information available on the subject. The Internet is flooded with it. Yet so few people actually achieving anything, let alone creating the life of their dreams?

Let me tell you why. There are usually 2 reasons for this:

1. Too much, detailed and therefore too complex information. One talks about 7 Universal Laws, another talks about 12 Laws of Success, yet another talks about 21 Subsidiary Laws or Spiritual Laws. Most people don’t know who’s right anymore. Do you? Consequently, most people either do nothing at all, or they study all different books, tapes, and movies, and start to do things of one book that work against things of the other. No results come about, and many people give up entirely and write it all off as trash or claptrap.

2. Too little information.
There can be too little information in 2 different ways. First, too little information can mean that the information given is inaccurate. This is sometimes the case. But secondly, and usually, the information given may be accurate, but is insufficient.

Often, people just focus on the Law of Attraction, but they forget that there’s a whole bunch of other universal principles (or Laws) to know about. That doesn’t mean you have to know about every single minor detail. In that case you fall for the other trap, which is the trap of too much, too detailed and too complex information.

No, you can keep things simple for yourself if you just focus on the main universal principles. By that, you automatically cover all detailed, subsidiary Laws you can think of.

So are there other Universal Laws next to the Law of Attaction then?

You can bet your sweet bippy there are!

But once again, the trick is simply to focus on the main ones to keep things simple for yourself. The Law of Attraction is one of the main Universal Laws. But there’s another one as well, one that the Law of Attraction can’t work without. This Universal Law sets the stage for the Law of Attraction to work. This Universal Law is the Universal Law of Love.

“What, you mean how I love my girl? You mean I need to do the wild thing for this stuff to work? Why didn’t you say so right away?!”

Well, before you rip off all your clothes, it’s not really that kind of love. This Law is about Universal Love. And the game of Universal Love is a whole different ballgame than the regular game of love, fancying someone and ‘getting busy’.

Universal Love happens to be the building block of all things. Universal Love is much more than emotion or feeling of fancying someone or giving them a ‘quickie’. Universal Love is the most balanced form of energy. Love is the balance of all. Love is stillness, peace of mind. The universe is Love.

This is not the time and place to get into the true nature of the Universe. For now it suffices to say that Universal Love can take on many forms. Love can be considered acceptance of yourself, or of others. Love is unconditional. Love doesn’t set terms. Love is freedom. Love is freedom for you to be who you truly are inside, not what others think you should be. Love is the freedom of others to be who they truly are inside, not what you or anyone else think they should be. Love is never to impose anything on anyone.

Read that last part again and really ponder the content. Because this is the first thing that most people seem to forget in life. Most people just walk in line, do what they’ve always been doing, think what they’ve always been thinking, and therefore get what they’ve always been getting (which they’re usually not satisfied with). Bit still, they stick to it, like they’re addicted.

And why? Because they fear the reactions of other people. They allow others to dictate how they should live their lives. These others can be parents, ‘friends’, the boys at the bar, team mates, ‘the girls’, ‘the gang’, the ‘mother-in-law’, you name it.

And at the same time, they’re doing the same themselves to others. Often even unconsciously. They just live according to the externally imposed norms of which they don’t even know the origin, and therefore they block their own uniqueness, their own potential, and thus their ability to live the life of their dreams.

After all, what is the life of your dreams? Is it living the artificial image of what others think you should be? Of course not. It’s the life of being who they truly are inside, and the happiness and abundance in any area (not least financial abundance) that come with it.

So basically, most people allow themselves to be policed by other people, and are at the same time policing other people themselves. As soon as someone starts to do something differently, something out of the artificially imposed norms, the ridicule and sometimes even physical harassment takes off, pulling the people who are about to make their unique contribution to the world back in line. That’s right, back to their robot-like existence of a daily repeated series of routines they’ve been told to be following all their lives.

Tell me something, does that sound like a balanced form of existence? Does that sound like Universal Love? Do you think the Law of Attraction will work if you don’t even allow yourself to live your life the way you want to live it? Do you think you can allow others to live their lives in the way they want it, if you can’t even allow yourself to do so? You’re doing nothing more than blocking yourself and your efforts.

You can sit on your butt watching the movie ‘The Secret‘ all the time, while waiting for a magic amount of money to suddenly appear on your bank account. But I’ll tell you upfront. That’s going to take a while.

The alternative is that you start to change your circumstances right away. You need a whole lot more Universal Love to set the stage for the Universal Law of Attraction to work. That’s what’s Love’s got to do with it!

The application of the Universal Law of Love sets the stage for the Universal Law of Attraction to work. Everything in life is unified, the universe is a whole. One Universal Law cannot work without the other. It’s a closed system. Therefore, just knowing about the Law of Attraction isn’t enough. You must know about all main Universal Laws, how they interact, and how to apply them in conjunction with each other. Focusing on the main Universal Laws is a simple thing to do. But it all starts with the application of the Universal Law of Love.

“All you need is Love” ;-)

Welcome to the Revolution.

Nicholas P. Kidd and Henk J.M. Schram are the instigators of the alleged ‘Great Revolution’, which provides the members with truthful instructions regarding the universal principles of life.

The Revolution is receiving increasingly widespread attention for its straightforward explanations and instructions with regard to complex issues, which are made understandable for people from all walks of life. In essence, the true secrets of the ‘Law of Attraction’ and the other ‘Universal Laws’ are explained in much clearer and practical ways than the ‘enigmas wrapped in riddles’ that usually characterize the descriptions of the Law of Attraction and its application.

The Universal Laws and The Universal Law of Bollocks

These days you can hardly go through any articles, books, DVDs, movies, films, documentaries with regard to self-improvement or self-help without coming across at least one mentioning of some ‘Universal Law’. Suddenly, there appears to be a Universal Law for anything. Like we haven’t got enough Laws to deal with already!

There is truth to these ‘Universal Laws’, but in most cases, a little nuance is in place. Please read along, as the remainder of this article will clear it all up.

There are Universal Laws that guide your life behind the scenes of ‘physical reality’. These are actually rather ‘universal principles of life’. That would be a more appropriate qualification.

However, the qualification of ‘Universal Law’ has taken on a life of its own. The word ‘Law’ appears to be a magic word… Almost a magic wand that casts a spell on anyone who reads it that puts them in a hypnotized state thinking that what it says must be true. After all, it’s a ‘Law’ isn’t it? A ‘Law’ is always right. No more thinking required.

Today, subjects like the ‘Law of Attraction’ are at an all-time high of popularity. We’ve got the movie ‘The Secret‘ and a whole big bunch of people trying to leverage on it by proclaiming themselves as ‘experts in the field of the Law of Attraction’, or ‘masters of attraction’. Yes, there’s that magic word (wand) again.

And simply because people seem to like ‘Universal Laws’, every now and then a new ‘Universal Law’ makes its entrance. People come up with new ‘Universal Laws’ all the time. And likewise, new ‘experts on the Law of Attraction’ and ‘masters of attraction’ proclaim themselves every day.

Yet despite so many people having seen the movie ‘The Secret‘ and knowing about the Law of Attraction, there is only a very, very small number of people who are actually living the life of their dreams, or ‘attracting their desires’, or ‘manifesting their dreams’. Yes those are some other ‘magic words’ from today’s common terminology.

How come? How come, with all that knowledge, with all those ‘Universal Laws’ already written and told about, and with all those new ‘Universal Laws’, ‘Spiritual Laws of the Universe’, ‘Subsidiary Laws’ and so on coming about each and every day on the Internet and elsewhere… How come that all the people buying those books, DVDs, movies, films, documentaries, and so on, are still not ‘attracting their desires’ or ‘manifesting their dreams’?

I’ll tell you why. Most people have heard something about it, but have no real knowledge about the matter. They are aware of the fact that there are ‘Universal Laws’, or rather ‘universal principles of life’ that work behind the scenes and guide the courses of their lives.

However, most people have lost track, because so many who think they know what they’re talking about (while they don’t) come up with these new ‘Universal Laws’ all the time. There may be some truth to all these different ‘Universal Laws’. But what they really do for genuine seekers for the truth like yourself is not much more than making things way too difficult and complex to apply.

And if that isn’t enough already, often another big problem comes up when you start reading about the ‘Law of Attraction’ and the ‘Laws of the Universe’. The ‘experts’ who speak or write about them tend to do that in such an overly symbolic fashion, that few well-thinking people can make any practical sense of it. What you find is nothing but ‘enigmas wrapped in riddles’.

Listen, there are universal principles of life. ‘Universal Laws’ if you will. However, when it comes to applying them to your advantage, we are in desperate need for some clarity.

Let me show you what I mean. I can come up with hundreds of ‘Universal Laws’ if I want. Here’s a couple of them…

Introducing the Universal Law of Ping Pong
It says you have to use ping pong balls if you want to play table tennis.

Introducing the Universal Law of Rain
It says that when it rains, things get wet.

Disappointing, eh? But they did sound interesting at first, right?

See what’s happening here? The mere qualification of ‘Universal Law’ makes the statement sound interesting already, while the true deeper meaning of the ‘Universal Law’ is nothing more than a standard, blindingly obvious platitude.

So let me give you another Universal Law right now, to satisfy your probably insatiable need (or so you may think) for knowledge of all ‘Universal Laws’ to improve your life, ‘attract your desires’, and ‘manifest your dreams’ once and for all:

Introducing the Universal Law of Bollocks
It says that it’s all bollocks.

That’s right, it’s all bollocks. Bollocks! There are universal principles guiding your life. If you want, you can call them ‘Universal Laws’. I’ve done so in my books and articles, because that’s what people are looking for these days. If I would apply other terminology, people would never even be looking at it. Simply because they think they need ‘Laws’.

But it’s all bollocks, because before this whole game we call ‘human life’ started, we didn’t get an instruction manual on how life was supposed to be lived. We didn’t get a Code of Law full of ‘thou shalt nots’. The purpose of the whole thing was to find out the universal principles and realize that through applying these principles, YOU can have full control over whatever it is you want to create. The purpose of the whole thing was to find out that the world ‘outside’ is only a mirror showing what’s going on ‘inside’. All this time, the whole thing has been about finding out that you create your reality experience yourself.

Yes, that’s right, you ‘create’, which is much more than ‘attracting’. But that’s something you’ll discover as you get more experienced in the conscious living of your life and in the engineering your own success by applying the true and simple universal principles of life.

Or yes, ‘Laws’ if you will.

What you call ‘good’ and ‘bad’ are qualifications of your own. You are the one who deems things to be ‘good’ or ‘bad’. That’s merely a judgment from your individual perspective. When you’re not satisfied with your reality experience, you need to create something else that you are satisfied with.

For many, this is where the Law of Attraction comes in. According to most, this one states that what you focus your thoughts on becomes your reality. There’s truth to this statement, but there’s more to the story. Positive thinking and visualizing aren’t going to cut it. There are certain boundary conditions to take into account, certain ‘universal principles of life’. Without attending to these conditions, your attraction efforts will be sabotaged. And this is exactly what most people who have seen ‘The Secret‘ and have tried to put the ‘Law of Attraction’ into practice are experiencing.

But the last thing you need are instructions that are either overly symbolic, or too complex to apply. What you want to keep things simple and straightforward. Or else you may get lost in the details. You want just enough straightforward knowledge for simple application of the principles, while still having a total view on the big picture that is comprehensive enough to not forget about any universal principle, or Law for that matter.

If you want to make life simple for yourself, to start pulling the right strings at once to create the life and destiny of your dreams, then don’t waste another second on trying to find out every small, detailed, insignificant ‘Universal Law’ someone came up with today. You’ll be like a cat chasing its own tail: a never-ending story that leaves you exhausted and depressed.

Neither should you merely think positive thoughts and then wait for things to happen. There’s a little more to it. Just a little, nothing complex, but still extremely important.

Just keep it simple. There are 6 main Universal Principles (or Laws) that cover all universal principles automatically. Attend to them all, which is a simple thing to do without much effort required, and you’ll be off living more than your dreams before you can even consciously realize you created such an incredible experience!

Keep it straightforward and easy-to-apply. The game of life wasn’t intended to be complex and difficult. The game was supposed to be simple and easy, and most of all FUN!

And there’s a simple road to it, and it’s just a small decision away.
