From the Science Desk
I’ve been thinking about what’s real, lately. No, I don’t mean I am seeing things that aren’t there…. Yet.
I mean, reality. Or, as some like to write it, Reality.
If you’re not a follower of new physics research (and I mean who isn’t, right?), you might not be aware of the stuff that’s happening in this field of study. But I suggest, at the very least, you dip a toe into this very deep well… for the simple reason that what is being discovered lately may change how human beings, all human beings, see their world, and themselves.
This isn’t pseudo science. This is real science.
In my humble opinion, this could be the next evolution of… us. It sounds crazy, but imagine a world where everyone can share their thoughts with anyone, without speaking, from the other side of the world. Or, consider a world where anyone could see into a secret file cabinet at the defense department of a rival country. Imagine a world where there are no secrets. Yeah, sounds unbelievable, I know. But just consider what this would do to (or for) humanity.
Call me crazy too, but I believe this world is coming, and sooner than we might think.
Granted, the theoretical physics stuff that folks are coming up with sound a bit insane. String theory, quantum entanglement, all these weird names for weird ideas which sound like science fiction. But the craziest thing is… scientists aren’t squaking, or laughing. They are sitting up, taking notice, and finding ways to test and measure these theories. Hey, even Warp Drive (for all you Star Trek geeks out there) is being looked at.
*If you want a primer (with laymen definitions, sort of) on some of the New Physics being discussed and researched, here is a good place to start.*
Was that a scoff I heard?
While most of us folks might scoff at concepts such as ESP (Extra Sensory Perception), reputable scientists have been proving the existence - in the lab - of things like telepathy, clairvoyance, and psychometry for years. For example, Dr. Dean Radin has been looking critically at psi abilities, and coming up with startling results.
If this interests you, and you have the time, do watch this presentation by Dr. Radin. And he’s just one such scientist doing cutting edge research. Did you know that even the CIA studied ESP - for 20 years (and maybe still are)?. In particular, they were (are) interested in Remote Viewing. Don’t believe me? Perhaps you need to hear it from the horse’s mouth… There is a new documentary called “Third Eye Spies,” where both scientists and former CIA employees speak openly about this program.
And now, there is a new study that has found a possible place in the brain where such abilities might reside, or at least enable folks to experience it. This work is being done by, among others, Stanford University professor Dr. Gary Nolan. (Reputable scientists are even using new DNA research to identify genes which may be related to these phenomena and abilities.) If you would like to learn more about this new study, a good place to start is this interview with Dr. Nolan. But, beware, this might take you down a rabbit hole to a whole different way of looking at… well… reality.
So, yeah, I believe we are all heading down that rabbit hole, even though most folks on this little blue marble are totally unaware of it. I leave you with a quote from theoretical physicist Max Plank …
“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”
― Max Planck (April 23, 1858 - October 4, 1947)
