Matters of the Mind II

Numerous sites on the Internet and other types of publications offer information about dimensions that are not the one from which they were described. Related topics are the Akashic Records, angels / extra terrestrials / extra dimensionals etc. One can not help but wonder how information regarding these matters can be known in this dimension.

Astronomy professor at Cornell University in Ithica, New York, Carl Sagan once said: 'If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.' His television series Cosmos: a personal voyage in 1980 was watched by over 500 million people. Kenneth Clark's Civilisation, Jacob Bronowski's The Ascent of Man and David Attenborough's Life on Earth. The fact that so many were drawn to these series is no scientific proof that other dimensions than the one containing human life actually exist. But the magnitude of people's curiosity is not something to be casually ignored either. Whatever the reason for it, there is one, even if it can not accurately be defined.

Science is inherently involved in a continuous process of re-inventing itself. It inevitably corrects it views, amends or discards theories that were considered to be true at some point in time and embraces finds that are entirely new. But even outside the world of science there are forms of knowledge that are suspected or considered to be true. The ability of science to prove matters relies on the level of perception of its scholars, the quality of their measuring tools and an intangible factor that has often shown to be the engine of advancement: coincidence.

As quantum physics professor David Bohm expressed: Human knowledge is a perceptual enterprise. Perception is a process of acquiring knowledge that is driven by intuition. The latter is often described as instinctive knowing without the use of rational processes. A clear example of such a process was recorded by one of the greatest scientists of all time, Nikola Tesla, in his autobiography. Tesla tells in detail how he sees in great detail what he is about to invent before going into his laboratory. It allowed him to omit a lot of trial and error experimenting – he knew where to go and what to do before he started to build his inventions.

A similar process was described by professor Charles Dennett who observed that when one wants to make a cup of coffee, the body is prepared to make it, even before one becomes aware of the fact that one wants to make a cup of coffee. Also the article in The Lancet by Dr. Pim van Lommel in which he shares his discoveries of some type of external consciousness underwent by people who had gone through Near Death Experiences, hint at sources of information that are received by human beings that are not of this dimension.

Apart from personal experience the above mentioned non-conclusive (from a scientific point of view) instances of research by renown scientists may indicate that external dimensions may not be as external as mankind has been made to believe or has chosen to believe. Belief systems that attempt to strictly set borders and limitations to what is allowed or considered to be correct have rarely led to discoveries that contributed to the advancement of mankind in the field of knowledge. This applies to both systems of a temporal and celestial nature. It has forced mankind to run in circles and bump into unsolvable paradox for centuries.

From such a conditioned mindset an abundance of non-sense has flooded the perception of countless people. Considering the expressions of Bohm, Van Lommel, Dennett and Tesla, may lead to a different frame of mind that may help to break loose from the limiting conditioning that has prevented man from finding the truth. The truth of human origin, the talents bestowed on on our species and the pathway to our destination. Although such matters are not included in 'officially approved' areas of reasoning or induced comfort zones, it may be very worthwhile to go there anyway. I will try to elaborate on these things in following blog entries.

Have a most wonderful day with an open mind.
