I’ve just found this video today and it blew my mind.
These past couple of years have been spent moving towards a degree in astrophysics in order to have access to the physical proofs of what I have experienced in astral travel and soulwork in general. I’ve been hoping that the more I learn about the universe, the more I can find answers to some of mankind’s most unanswered questions. I want to be on the forefront of the movement, to find ways to prove that consciousness is, in fact, scientific; entering into the workforce as a non~physical creature searching for the connections between science and soul, while keeping to a strict honesty within myself, as unclouded by my own beliefs and ideologies as is possible.
The importance of the secrecy of my intent is that science still needs proof derived through non~’religious’ eyes. If I were to step into the physics community spouting ‘new age’ jargon about vibrational frequencies and light as the gods that we are, I would not only destroy my chance to be acknowledged as a viable equal amongst them but would hold myself back from beneficial relationships and opportunities that would be available to me were I to keep my true intentions veiled.
While I admire those like Peter Russell who speak about the science of spirit openly, I feel that there is a time and place for all things. Russell’s recounts of Copernicus, Galileo and Newton remind me that there is a point to a cautious approach.
“Copernicus came up with his idea, but the establishment then was the church and he wouldn’t even publish because he was scared of what the church would say. When…Galileo, 70 years later, looked through his telescope and came up with evidence to support Copernicus, it’s said the cardinals refused to look down the telescope because they knew he must be wrong. And it was, really, another 70 years after that when Newton came along and did the mathematics and proved it was right that the idea got accepted.”
Though I am hardly in danger of being tortured and hanged like those that have come before me, the science of soul is still a very taboo subject. Being a newly~arrived apprentice to these brilliant minds, I am hesitant to ask any questions or offer any of my own theories.
This video is much about quantum physics, yet simple enough for the layperson to understand. It breaches subjects that range from the conscious states of plants and animals to a brief analysis of verifiable evidence that the universe, itself, is arranged in such a way that every natural act is that of it discovering itself again, from a cosmic level down to the hot soil we call home. Russell explains it all in the common tongue, devoid of new age jargon that I, myself, am often imprisoned by.
For instance, I speak a lot of the illusion of human existence. To me, this doesn’t mean that life is literally an illusion, rather that if someone believes that any part of life is set in stone and unchangeable, or that outside forces beyond their control dictate their life story, they are imprisoned by the illusion of lack of control that most of mankind suffers from. But Russell reminds me that there is nothing illusory about life because consciousness is relative, completely real to the experiencer. If someone believes they have no control it is not an illusion: they literally have no control. He goes further to say that whether or not it’s all an illusion, the single thing that can be said to be real is that we are experiencing. This is something I’ve considered often.
After having listened to this a couple of times I am considering leaning away from astronomy and more towards quantum physics. To live my daily life immersed in theories of multiple universes and matter would be a dream come true. Russell explains that it is the quantum field of physics which has proven that nothing is set in stone, that energy is all that exists in the universe, and that randomness and symmetry are equal companions in the grand scheme. This fact was suggested with the discovery of the Higgs boson, a particle whose weight lay almost exactly between the weights proposed by both those who believe that the universe exists in perfect harmony (Super-Symmetry) and those who believe that chaos is an inevitable (Chaos Theory). For more on this subject watch the awe~inspiring documentary “Particle Fever”, directed by Mark Levinson.
What was most fascinating to me was his discussion of quantum physics’ continued considerations of matteras a creation of consciousness. No one knows what matter is made of, and particles are not actually ‘particles’. In the vacuum of interstellar space, particles sometimes emerge from nothing and disappear again from whatever place they came. There’s so much we still don’t know.
There’s so much in this video, so many things I’ve wondered at. Definitely worth an hour of your time should you be so inclined.
