The Wave Chapter 71: If I Speak in the Tongues of Men and Angels or, Jaguars: The Nonlinear Dynamics of Love and Complex Systems
Nobel Laureate Murray Gell-Mann writes in The Quark and the Jaguar:
I have never really seen a jaguar in the wild. In the course of many long walks through the forests of tropical America and many boat trips on Central and South American rivers, I never experienced that heart-stopping moment when the powerful spotted cat comes into full view. Several friends have told me, though, that meeting a jaguar can change one’s way of looking at the world.
… [Arthur Sze writes] “The world of the quark has everything to do with a jaguar circling in the night.” …
The jaguar stands for the complexity of the world around us, especially as manifested in complex adaptive systems. … the quark and the jaguar seem to me to convey perfectly the two aspects of nature that I call the simple and the complex: on the one hand, the underlying physical laws of matter and the Universe and, on the other, the rich fabric of the world that we perceive directly and of which we are a part. … the jaguar is … a possible metaphor for the elusive complex adaptive system, which continues to avoid a clear analytical gaze, though its pungent scent can be smelled in the bush. (Gell-Mann 1994, 3, 11)
In the last few chapters, we have met the Jaguar. We have described a reality out of your worst nightmare. Some of you have been able to actually see the Jaguar, and some of you have smelled its pungent scent, and some of you have covered your eyes and held your nose and have fled in terror to the safety of more congenial belief systems. These latter have concluded that the Cassiopaeans are presenting “just another of those the-world-is-damned and only a few are gonna be saved” rants. In regard to this, let me quote British novelist Donald James (aka Dresden James), who wrote:
A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people, but that the world wasn’t flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.
In either case, whether you have seen or smelt the jaguar, or have denied its existence, holding the perfumed handkerchief of well-packaged lies to your nose, I think it is time to talk a few minutes about current realities. On July 16 1994, the information about the “project to create a new race” was given with a completion date of 13 years in the future. That would put it right around the year 2007. We should either be running for cover, or on our knees praying, right? Nice linear thought pattern.
Well, 2007 has come and gone. Around the time of editing this volume for print, we had a session that was relevant to his topic:
July 22, 2010
A: Remember we once told you that people would unite against the “invasion” at the time just before the earth changes?
Q: (L) Well, yeah. We were talking about the Nephalim and their stun guns and that sort of thing. But it looks like psychopaths are the new Nephalim, and they’re already using stun guns – tasers. And then we asked if they were going to try to stage a fake alien invasion. All of this disclosure business is trying to point people in the direction of alien invasions, trying to get them prepared for some kind of fake alien invasion. Then you said yes, but a real invasion might take place first or earth changes would happen. Now, it’s just been pressing on my mind, becoming more and more clear, that we don’t need an alien invasion with psychopaths ruling this world as their transdimensional agents. And it has occurred to me that when you said that way back when, that basically the invasion has already occurred! It’s here, now. It’s psychopaths in power!
Everybody is looking and waiting for some kind of aliens; well, aliens are a supernatural phenomenon. Yeah, there is a certain physicality to it, but it strikes me that that physicality doesn’t have … what do I want to say? Endurance? It doesn’t “vibrate” right in our reality. It can come and go, but it doesn’t stay here. So they need agents. They’ve always needed agents. They’ve always needed human-looking beings to control, to manipulate, or to even “download into” in a funny sort of way, like a possession or an activation. It’s like they’re sitting at some control console in some hyperdimensional place controlling their agents the way we control remote control toys.
So anyhow, this is what I’ve been thinking. Everybody’s waiting for something to happen, like disclosure, or after disclosure. But it’s already happened. It’s here NOW! Any so-called “disclosure” will be a fraud unless they come out and say that it is a supernatural or hyper-dimensional phenomenon, which they are NOT going to say because that completely counters their entire world view that worships the physical universe. That’s where the whole Darwinism, material science, exclusion of scientific study of the paranormal, and so forth, comes from. That sort of thing can NEVER be studied honestly because it would destroy their reality construct.
(Perceval) That’s a great screen.
(L) Yeah, they’re trying to prepare people for physical, material aliens – “Disclosure” - because they’re going to TRY to pull the alien invasion trick or the “alien god” trick and they’ll say, “Worship the alien god! Join behind us! We’re his high priests!” But it’s not going to work.
(Perceval) It’s almost like that’s been held in reserve if it’s necessary. They’ve prepped people with the idea of aliens.
(L) It’s like this gigantic counterintelligence program. And the main thing that I’ve seen them working to counter is the idea, the concept, the understanding that this phenomenon is a supernatural one. To make that clear, what we have always called supernatural, which is not necessarily “supernatural”, is really just hyperdimensional. We’ve been aware of these things – this other reality – for millennia. They come and go. It’s like the finger in Flatland. We’re Flatland! Am I on to something with this?
A: About as accurate as you can get without making direct predictions.
Q: (L) Who was it, this scientist guy… Was it Werner von Braun who said they were going to create this illusion about an alien invasion, and that it was all a big lie and a big fraud? And the real reason he said it was that he knew that it was a paranormal or a hyperdimensional phenomenon. Is that what he meant?
Q: (L) Because that fits. We’ve already been invaded. It’s already a done deal. (Perceval) An invasion of psychopaths. (L) Yeah.
(Ailén) It’s a perfect excuse for not taking responsibility as human beings. They can blame it on aliens, and say, “We’re all equal, we’re all victims! We didn’t know!”
The question has been asked: if the Cassiopaeans are the nice guys who serve self by serving others, as they claim, why in the world would they tell us about a reality that is so horrible? Is it their objective to create such a reality by planting it in our minds and convincing us it is real and that we have no hope? Doesn’t making people afraid provide a wonderful feast of fear for those nasty old fourth-density STS controllers? Isn’t that just what they want? And, if so, then the Cassiopaeans must be one of “them” in disguise, providing themselves with a feast of fear!
At the same time, when the Cassiopaeans suggest that the many sources of information or systems of belief that make you feel safe, saved, warm and fuzzy, could really be setting you up for a fall, aren’t they driving us away from the real sources of peace and harmony in which we must have faith in the face of any other evidence?
Well, let me ask you a question: would you go hiking in the wilderness without proper clothing and equipment? If somebody told you about all the dreadful things that can happen on a hike in the woods, would it stop you from the hike? Would you be so terrorized by the prospect of encountering a bear or a snake or a jaguar that you would stay home? Or would you equip yourself properly, with both knowledge and tools, and go enjoy your hike in safety?
Well, this analogy goes only so far because, as it happens, we are already in the middle of the wilderness and there are a lot of teachers around who are repeatedly telling us, “There’s nothing out there that can harm you! If you aren’t afraid, no grizzly bears or snakes will appear! And, even if they do, if you don’t feel fear, they won’t bother you.”
Well, on the occasions when just such a philosophy might seem to have worked, the survivor of the encounter is firmly convinced that it was just this quality of “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” that preserved them. The only problem is, we have no way of knowing if the grizzly bear, the snake, or the jaguar declined to attack them simply because they weren’t hungry at the moment, or they were distracted by other, more tasty prey. And a more compelling question is this: did they act in a manner so as to convince the person that their belief system worked, so that they would return and proclaim the gospel of faith and ignorance, thereby assuring their continued concealment? And, naturally, those who practice this philosophy and do not survive, we never hear about. Freud wrote that religion was “a system of wishful illusions together with a disavowal of reality, such as we find … nowhere else … but in a state of blissful hallucinatory confusion.”
And, of course, the Cassiopaeans have identified the essence of Service to Self as “wishful thinking.”
Now, let me propose another interpretation of what the Cassiopaeans have told us. One that is actually contained within their words for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. Could it just be possible that they are, as they have said, probable future selves whose reality as sixth-density beings is increased in direct proportion to our level of knowledge, and subsequent application? In other words, are we not dealing with probable futures, and the only way of determining which future we experience is to choose based on accurate knowledge of the present?
Suppose that the information the Cassiopaeans disseminate is true and we ignore it, are we then possibly subject to the very reality they tell us about? Conversely, if we accept it as true, or possibly true, and then act based on this information, are we not then capable changing the reality? That is, assuming that the reality is a result of mass mind non-awareness, and that a critical mass of awareness can be achieved?
In short, does it not seem reasonable that our probable future selves – given increasing probability by the awakening of a few people – are capable of interacting in our reality to help us only because some of us accept the role of being contact points to receive and disseminate the information necessary to wake people up in order to change the future?
Ouspensky, quoting Gurdjieff, writes:
Furthermore no one can escape from prison without the help of those who have escaped before. Only they can say in what way escape is possible or can send tools, files, or whatever may be necessary. But one prisoner alone cannot find these people or get into touch with them. An organization is necessary, nothing can be achieved without an organization. (Ouspensky 1949)
Remember the most important principles the Cassiopaeans have given us: free will, and knowledge protects. These two concepts are inseparable. The more knowledge you have, the more awareness you have; and the more awareness you have, the more free will you have. And the only way to understand the advanced information from the Cassiopaeans that evolved as we interacted with them is to understand nonlinear dynamics and complex systems.
On this issue, my husband Ark speculates: one day we will have a smart gadget that will allow us to measure the “level of awareness”. Then the term “the more awareness you have” will have a technical meaning, like blood pressure, cholesterol level or, less precisely, IQ quotient.
First of all, it is important to note that the law of free will contains within it the explicit condition of non-linearity. And for those who wish to take issue with my remarks here, claiming that the Cassiopaeans have said that we are controlled by fourth-density STS, and therefore this implies that there is no free will, keep in mind that we have as much free will in relation to fourth density as second-density creatures have in relation to us. The more awareness a second-density creature obtains about a third-density person, the more likely it is to avoid being captured and eaten. So, let’s not slip into tetraphyloctomy on that point. (A term coined by Umberto Eco in Foucault’s Pendulum; means “the art of splitting a hair four ways”.)
Implicit in non-linearity is the fact that the future is, as the Cassiopaeans have said a thousand times, open. Not only is it open, it is multiple in probability. In their own words, there is an uncountable infinity of quasi-quantum propensities.
Even if they often oppose one another, belief in reductionism and mechanism go hand in hand with religious faith. God or Darwin are in heaven and all is right with the world. Phenomena are orderly and everything can be explained with some sort of cause and effect scheme represented by differential equations. Either God started things at some point in space-time, to follow a single linear path, at which point He will bring it to an end, saving some people and not others, according to survival of the fittest in terms of who has obeyed his commands; or everything began with the Big Bang and has followed the linear path of evolutionary survival of the fittest in terms of natural selection. Same song, different verse.
Newton introduced us to these ideas through his famous laws of motion which relate the rates of change of momentum to various forces. Very quickly science, and religion, came to rely on linear differential equations. Phenomena such as the flight of a baseball or the end of the world (which necessitates the damning of certain souls on a particular trajectory, and the saving of others) could be described by differential equations. You throw the ball a certain way with a certain force, and there are certain conditions, and it will land at a specified place. If you have faith in a certain system, and hold firm to that faith, or conversely, deny that faith, you will end up in heaven or hell; or you will die in a pole shift, or be translated to the great new pie-in-the-sky. In such systems, small changes produce small effects and large effects are obtained by summing up many small changes.
This reductionist thinking held sway over nearly all the world until the 1970s when mathematical advances and the advent of the high-speed computer enabled scientists to probe the complex interior of nonlinear equations. (Note: the new trend started earlier, in 1950s in Los Alamos, with simulations of Fermi-Ulam-Pasta model on the then state-of-the-art computer Maniac 1.)
Nonlinear equations are math from the Twilight Zone where the normal mathematical landscape can suddenly become an alternate reality. In nonlinear equations, a small change in one variable can have a disproportionate impact on other variables. This can be catastrophic or serendipitous.
Now, the Cassiopaean material that explicates these things, that I am in the process of trying to present, will be offered in due time, and in context. But, in direct response to the many attempts to block this presentation, I am taking a shorter route here by explaining this in advance of presenting the material itself in a future volume.
It seems that it has not been without some sort of definite plan in the mind of the Cassiopaeans that before coming to the US, Arkadiusz Jadczyk was heading a division of nonlinear dynamics and complex systems. You may have deduced that there was an essential need for the participation of a physicist of exactly his background in this plan. It might even be further conjectured that he and I both were aware of this plan prior to incarnating and that our different pathways, brought together by the direct intervention of the Cassiopaeans, were necessary experiences set up by our future selves in order to prepare the ground, as it were, for the seeds that are now bearing fruit in this present series.
Getting back to nonlinear systems: nonlinear equations can be used to model the way an earthquake erupts when two tectonic plates shove against one another, building up irregular pressure along a fault line. The equation can show how for decades this jagged pressure mounts as the subsurface topography squeezes closer until in the very next millimeter of movement a critical value is encountered. At this value, the pressure pops suddenly and one plate slips, riding up on the other and everything shakes, rattles and rolls in the aftershocks of instabilities. Sure gives new meaning to the expression, “The straw that broke the camel’s back.”
Now, while scientists can model how such complex events manifest, they cannot predict exactly where or when the next quake will happen. This is because in the nonlinear world – which includes most of the real world – long term prediction is both practically and theoretically impossible. Nonlinearity dashes the reductionist dream of science, and an open future dashes the dream of the faithful in standard religions and philosophies based on prophecy and determinism.
By crunching different numbers in the nonlinear equations, systems theory scientists are able to model the effects of various policies and strategies on such things as the evolution of cities, the growth of a corporation, the firing of neurons, photon emissions, the economy, and so on. Using nonlinear models, it is even possible to locate potential critical pressure points in such systems. At these critical points, a small change can have a tremendous impact.
The teachings of the Cassiopaeans are based on a nonlinear, complex, self-referencing and self-organizing cosmos. That is to say, when they answer our questions at any given moment, the answers are correct for that moment in space-time, for that branch of the Universe in which the question is asked. However, that information, if it is utilized, changes the complex system via a process of back-propagation or feedback, and the Universe can branch and change in a nonlinear way. That this has happened will become evident as I proceed with the narrative. And maybe it has happened more than once, depending on our actions, or feedback into the system. What kind of feedback, you ask?
Nonlinear equations include feedback that repeatedly multiplies by themselves. But, there are two types of feedback. An example of a simple feedback loop is the thermostat in your home. The room cools down below a certain temperature set on the thermostat. The thermostat responds by switching on the heat pump, which then heats up the room. As the room warms up to the set temperature, the thermostat signals the heat pump to shut down. The action of the thermostat affects the heat pump and the activity of the heat pump affects the thermostat. The thermostat and heat pump are bound in what is technically called a negative feedback loop.
Negative feedback loops have been in used since as early as 250 bce, when they were used to regulate the height of water in water clocks. In the 1930s, feedback loops were used to model the relationship between predators and prey. In the 1950s, scientists (mainly in cybernetics and control theory) began to take conscious note of positive feedback loops.
The ear splitting screech you hear in a PA system is an example of positive feedback. (Yeah, I know, that sounds weird because there is nothing positive about those noises, for sure!) But what this means is that output from the PA amplifier is picked up by the microphone and looped back into the amplifier where it is then emitted by the speakers in greatly amplified volume. The chaotic sound is the result of the output of one stage of the process adding to the input in another stage of the process.
So, calling it positive just means it amplifies, just as negative feedback is a system of control. Think carefully about these two systems of feedback. These two types of feedback are everywhere in our world. And nonlinearity is everywhere a potential.
If you think about our reality in terms of feedback loops, you can see how it might be possible to control us by pumping a measured amount of heat or teachings into the system when it gets too cool; when people begin to get restless and ask questions. This has been the state for millennia. Each time human beings have begun to awaken, it could be likened to the room becoming too cool. The control system then adds some heat in the form of a new variation on the old teachings that serve to stabilize the system. As soon as enough heat has been added, the feeding shuts down. We will come back to some practical examples of negative feedback loops in terms of standard religions of the past, and the new religion of the “alien rapture theory” soon.
Positive feedback loops are a bit more problematical, and are the stuff of nonlinear dynamics. The key to positive feedback in terms that we are concerned with relates directly to the teachings of the Cassiopaeans. Their communications could be likened to the output from an amplifier, “us in the future,” which is picked up by the microphone, or “us in the past”, which is then looped back into the amplifier – us in the past (the present, from our frame of reference) again is then emitted by the speakers in a greatly amplified volume – or nonlinear change of the reality. This point is made clear in the following:
June 9, 1996
Q: (L) al-‘Arabî describes unified thought forms as being the “names of God.” His explication seems to be so identical to things you tell us that I wonder …
A: We are all the names of God. Remember, this is a conduit. This means that both termination/origination points are of equal value, importance. … Don’t deify us. And, be sure all others with which you communicate understand this too!
Q: (L) What quality in us, what thing, enabled us to make contact?
A: You asked.
Q: (L) A lot of people ask!
A: No they don’t, they command.
Q: (L) Well, a lot of people do ask or beg or plead, but they get all discombobulated with the answers.
A: No, they command. Think about it. You did not beg or plead … that is commanding.
And this is an important point. Until an individual realizes that having faith is a form of commanding, they have no hope of truly asking the Universe for answers. The fiction writer, Ann Rice, gave eloquent voice to this problem in The Vampire Lestat:
Very few beings really seek knowledge in this world – few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds – justifications, confirmations, forms of consolation without which they can’t go on. To really ask is to open the door to a whirlwind. The answer may annihilate the question and the questioner. (Rice 1997, 332–333)
To emphasize the above point, let me say that the most formidable difficulty I have found in sharing the Cassiopaean information is the fact that many people are incapable of esoteric understanding. There are many who say that they would very much like to inquire into the nature of reality and being, but their curiosity is ephemeral – they are dilettantes who will only reach the portal of the outer circles of understanding. The fearful “Dweller on the Threshold,” nowadays manifesting as Grays and Reptoids, will block their path and they will find themselves too attached to their linear modes of thinking to enter the temple, so to speak.
This idea goes against the democratic egalitarianism of popular spiritual thinking, but the fact is:
To those people who simply pry into the occult from mere curiosity, we have nothing to say. They will obtain just as much as they deserve, and nothing more. “Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you” is equally as true today, in relation to esoteric knowledge, as it was 2000 years ago. … It invariably presupposes that the supplicator and the knocker are in real earnest, and that they seek only to satisfy the deep yearnings of the immortal soul. The doorkeeper, or guardian of the temple of truth is as mute as a granite rock to all others. They may supplicate, they may shout and bawl until they are hoarse, they may knock and buffet the door until they rouse a nation with their clamour, and if they approach in any other spirit than [earnest desire to satisfy the deep yearnings of the immortal soul], it is all to no purpose. We can never take the Kingdom of Heaven by storm.
Those students who are unable to comprehend the sublime import of the mighty system of cycles and periods … would preferably be occupied in eschewing occult studies for the adoption of others adapted to their sphere of thought. … They must remain contented until the time arrives when conditions are evolved in the scale of the succeeding human races, conditions which will permit of the expansive budding and blossoming of their soul’s now latent attributes.
… There is no such thing in the entire cosmos as equality. There is, instead a hierarchy, not as something tyrannical, and especially not based on birth, riches, or the power of the stronger, but as a “sacred authority” sanctioned by the nature of things. There is only one royalty, one aristocracy: that of intelligence. … This alone can lead to cosmic equilibrium and happiness.
… There are also numerous students who, although being in a condition suitable for the perception of truth, and for the true significance of nature’s grand mysteries, are yet totally unqualified for the perception of this knowledge, owing to their natural but terrible elemental affinity. The result of this fearful psychical condition is … that the occult powers which they might develop, would be used for purposes of a purely selfish and worldly nature …
It is quite a minority of this class who can grasp any actual power, for upon the contrary they frequently become the very dupes and slaves of the powers they so ardently seek to control.
To all such we fervently and solemnly say: abandon all thoughts of spirit-intercourse, flee from occultism, and spiritualism, as you would from a pestilence, and may the divine guardians of the human race preserve your souls from the bottomless abyss, upon the brink of which you may possibly have been unconsciously reposing. (“Axioms of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor”, quoted by Godwin et al. 1995)
The Cassiopaeans have said about this same matter:
November 16, 1994
Q: (L) Is there any kind of hierarchy to this thing? Do these beings come before some kind of grand council and make plans and discuss things, and make decisions and implement them?
Q: (L) Well, how do things happen? Do things just sort of happen as a natural interaction of things and energies?
Q: (L) If the Lizzies have been feeding off of us frequently and are planning to come and take over our planet, why, when they achieved their domination 300,000 years ago, did they not just move here and take up residence and be in charge?
A: No desire to inhabit same realm. … You are 3rd level they are 4th level.
Q: (L) Why are they planning to now?
A: They want to rule you in 4th density.
Q: (L) If the mother planet that the human race was seeded on originally, is burned up, or turned into a cinder, I would like to know how it burned up.
A: Star expanded.
Q: (L) Well, if the star expanded, it must have expanded recently, is that correct?
A: Time does not measure that way in that realm.
Q: (L) What realm is that?
A: Time/space warp. […]
Q: (L) So, the star expanded and the mother planet was turned into a cinder. If this was the case, it means that it must have turned into a cinder very close to the point, using time loosely, when human beings were created.
A: You can’t even use it loosely. … Okay. Now: “shocker” for you. It hasn’t become a cinder yet.
Q: (L) Okay. What is it? You told us it was a cinder … burned up … what is the real story here?
A: It will be at the same “time” that you go to 4th density. The human race is currently being formed on D’Ahnkiar. … That closes realm grand cycle.
Q: (L) Are you saying that there are human beings being created on that planet at this current time …
A: Yes, you are. Your race is forming there. … Realm crossing understand?
Q: (L) Are you saying that there are fourth-density bodies being formed there …
A: No. 3rd.
Q: (L) There are third-density bodies … are we going to leave the bodies we are in and go into other bodies?
A: You are drifting … think carefully. Realm is derivative of reality. Cycle.
Q: (L) So the human race is being formed on this other planet at the present time …
Q: (L) And at the time of the realm border crossing, this other planet will then become cindered … burned up …
Q: (L) Where will the human beings go that are being formed on that planet at the time of the realm border crossing?
A: Ancient Earth. … There is no time as you know it; its all just lessons for the collective consciousness.
Q: (L) So at the closing of this grand cycle everything will just start all over again?
A: Not exactly; you see, there is no start.
Q: (L) Are a lot of souls on the earth going to recycle into these new bodies coming onto the earth?
Q: (L) As ancient mankind?
Q: (L) And do the whole thing all over again?
Q: (L) So, in other words, a lot of people are going back to square one?
Q: (L) Is this punishment?
A: No. Nature.
Q: (L) Are some of the souls, at that point, going to move into a higher density level?
Q: (L) Could you give us a percentage on this?
A: No. Open at this point.
Q: (L) Now, getting back to the planet, if at some point in the cycle, bodies were generated on this planet and brought to earth, who brought them?
A: Realm crossing.
Q: (L) It was not a who, it was a what, is that correct?
A: All is who and what. … What is chosen? Only you can choose. The choice comes by nature and free will and looking and listening. Where you are is not important. Who you are is and also what you see.
So we begin to have an inkling that linear thinking must be tossed out the window and that we must turn to nature with all the powers of both our intellect and our intuition in order to weigh and measure the forces at work here, in which we figure as points of nonlinear confluence.
French mathematician Henri Poincare first blew the whistle on the closed system thinking of Newtonian mechanics. According to classical physics, Newtonian physics, a closed system is perfectly orderly and predictable. A pendulum in a vacuum, free of friction and air resistance, will conserve its energy. The pendulum will swing back and forth for all eternity. It will not be subject to the dissipation of entropy, which eats its way into systems by causing them to give up their energy to the surrounding environment. Planets, like pendulums, cannot be disturbed unless by outside chance, and they must be unvarying in their perambulations around the sun.
But Poincare asked a question about the stability of the solar system. Why he asked this question, we do not know, but he did. And the reaction to his question was the standard linear-faith brush-off, “Of course they are stable! They’ve been stable for a long time. Heck, we can predict eclipses years in advance!” It was a tenet of the scientific faith that knowing the law of force and mass of the bodies, any good scientist could predict the interactions with Newton’s equations. The law of force, the inverse square of the law of gravitation, was all wrapped up in a nice, neat package.
But Poincare had been doing some math on the side, and he knew that there was a small difficulty here: for a system containing only two bodies, Newton’s equations work. For an ideal two-body system, the orbits are stable. The problem arises when going from two to three bodies, such as including the Sun in the equations, Newton’s equations actually become unsolvable. For formal mathematical reasons, the three-body equation cannot be worked out closer than an approximation.
Well, one would think that an approximation might be okay. We can live with that. It’s nothing to keep one awake at night, right? Well, Poincare knew that the approximation method appeared to work for the first few bodies added, but when that number increased, if you add more and more bodies to the system, even including a few spare asteroids and their very minute perturbations of the system, over long periods of time, at some point the orbits shift and the solar system begins to break apart under its own internal forces.
Mathematically, this problem is nonlinear and nonintegrable. When you add a term to a two-body system it increases the nonlinear complexity, or feedback of the system. Poincare did this, and was satisfied that a three-body system remained pretty stable. Small perturbations, but so what? With just the Sun, the Earth and the Moon, we can sleep safely in our beds at night. Right?
Wrong. What happened next was a shock. Poincare discovered that with even the very smallest perturbation, some orbits behaved in an erratic, even chaotic way. His calculations showed that a minute gravitational pull from a third body might cause a planet to wobble and weave drunkenly in its orbit and even fly out of the solar system altogether!
One will be struck by the complexity of this figure which I do not even attempt to draw. Nothing more properly gives us an idea of complication of the problem of three bodies and, in general, of all the problems in dynamics where there is no uniform integral. (H. Poincare quoted by Schroeder 1991)
Poincare had discovered that chaos is the essence of the nonlinear system. He revealed that even a completely deterministic system like our solar system could do crazy things with the least provocation. The smallest effects could be magnified through positive feedback and a simple system can explode into shocking complexity.
This is quite a different matter from the negative feedback control mechanism that controls the temperature of our reality.
Now, let’s go in a slightly different direction. For a long time, matter and motion were accepted as the basis of reality and, to a great extent, continue to be. The Big Bang or Cosmic Firecracker theory is explained in these terms. A primal atom (matter) of incredible density exploded into motion. Where the primal atom came from, how the space it exploded into came into being, and where the impetus for this event originated, are still on the drawing board. Nevertheless, from this purported event, our Universe and the life within it just sort of accidentally happened. Man is the amoral end of a deadly biological evolution. The mind and soul are inexplicable byproducts of the struggle for survival. The Bible says, “In the Beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” Neither the Bible nor science has much to say about what happened before the beginning. St. Augustine was once asked the question, “What was God doing before He created the world?” The Bishop’s rejoinder: “Creating Hell for those who ask that question!” put a period to such inquiries. Few have asked since.
However, physics, the study of the deeper realities of existence, has failed to support the matter-motion theory. To the average person, a table, a chair, an orange, are real objects. They have dimension – three, to be exact – they are real. But are they? The physicist (and the knowledgeable layperson) knows that the object is composed of atoms. And there lies the rub! The dissected atom (quantum particles) often displays some very disturbing properties.
Physicist Nick Herbert writes in Quantum Reality:
Despite modern attempts to split it into finer bits, using energies a hundred billion times greater than those that hold the atom together, the electron remains steadfastly elementary. An electron, so it seems, simply doesn’t have any parts. (Herbert 1985, 58)
One experiment shows that electrons are particles. Another demonstrates wave properties. The bottom line seems to be that, having pursued reality to its farthest limits within human capability, man finds that his real world is made up of particle–waves, which do not exist except as a mathematical object. Danish physicist Niels Bohr even put forth the theory that there is no deep reality.
So, just what is this estate in which we find our existence? Does reality run out when it becomes invisible? Obviously not as we cannot see electricity and other forces in the Universe measurable only by their effect upon matter. Do these forces run out when they become undetectable by our senses or by our instruments? Do the things we detect with the subtle mechanisms of our mind and organs of sensation not exist simply because we cannot see or measure them? And, as Ark dared to ask in his 1994 paper, published in a peer reviewed physics journal, Annalen der Physik, (the same journal in which Einstein published his famous 1905 paper), “Who are ‘we’, anyway?”
This is the crisis in physics and the crisis in our world, for the prevailing cosmic view in the ivory towers of physics and cosmology eventually filters down and influences our domestic, social and political patterns.
But, if science has failed us, how much more so has religion?
Some religions say that the only meaning to life is in having faith that our suffering is creating a better future in the afterlife or in future lives. Other religions say that the meaning to life lies in working to dissolve the ego into nothingness. One philosophy states that the true purpose of life is to align our self-created realities so that they become as one in love and light, thereby we may achieve a unified race, which will survive beyond predicted cataclysms for a thousand years before things wind down a bit into the usual state of decay. Naturally this effect can only be initiated and maintained by a group effort to dominate the thinking of the world by bombing them all with positive thoughts. There are other ideas and combinations of ideas similar to these – all leading where?
“A religion contradicting science and a science contradicting religion are equally false.”
Surely there must be some way to reconcile the two.
Are we, in fact, an accident of evolution in an accidental Universe, on a race to nowhere except oblivion? Or, worse still, are our very minds – our desire for knowledge – our enemies; damning us for our lack of belief? The choice seems to be between a sick joke and a mistake, neither of which is conducive to faith.
But, help is on the way. In 1966, theoretical physicist John Stewart Bell constructed a proof that has since become known as Bell’s Theorem. (Reprinted in Speakable and Unspeakable in Quantum Mechanics.) This theorem tells us that, if quantum theory is correct, reality must be non-local. That is to say, anything happening anywhere whatsoever in the Universe, can, instantaneously affect everything else everywhere else in the Universe. He demonstrated that, if we take the lesson of the quantum theory seriously, an atom’s measured attributes are determined not just by events happening at the actual site of being, but by all events occurring in the entire Universe simultaneously and instantly.
Notice the key word above – instantaneous. This means superluminal or faster than the speed of light. But, assuming that no signal can travel faster than the speed of light, this must mean that there is no actual distance separating events. Bell’s theorem can be interpreted as demonstrating the idea that all that exists – past, present, and future – should be combined into a single entity whose farthest parts are joined in an immediate manner. In other words, the world we perceive – the stars and planets, the land and seas, the trees, animals, buildings, people – are all manifestations of a single unmitigated process.

Q: (B) Is this the only probability open to you or is this the best probability open to you?
Q: (B) Are you a great distance from us in light years?
A: Distance is a 3rd density idea.
Q: (B) Light years is third-density?
Q: (B) What do you mean by traveling on the wave?
A: Traveling on thoughts.

A: All is just lessons.
Q: (L) Whose thoughts are they?
A: Thoughts unify all reality in existence and are all shared.
Q: (S) You travel on a wave of energy created by all thought forms?
A: Thought forms are all that exists!
But, we are three-dimensional, are we not? Aren’t the table, the chair, the dog and the steak we had for dinner solid objects with length, depth, height and existence in time? What exactly are these objects we perceive as existing solidly in space for varying periods of time? What is the space we define as separating the objects? How are they connected in time? If physics seems to indicate to us that all is one, then what is it – what characteristic do we possess – that separates us from this deeper reality? And, what is the true nature of this reality?
Space, as we perceive it, has only three dimensions; length, width, and height. We define this condition as three independent directions – that is, each measurement lies at right angles to the others simultaneously. But, again, if we take quantum theory seriously, then our space is merely an aspect of another space, possibly of infinite number of dimensions.
If space is infinite, then it must possess an infinite number of lines perpendicular and not parallel to one another. Is infinity, then, a foolishness and does space necessarily have a limit? If it does have a limit, in what space does our space exist?
Now, if space does possess an infinite number of lines perpendicular to one another, then we must ask why we can only perceive three. If we exist in a condition of mind that perceives only three dimensions, this can mean that the properties of space are created – or differentiated – by certain attributes within us. For some reason or another, the whole is inaccessible to us. The Cassiopaeans have said this is a choice that followed a “desire based imbalance,” and that the desire was to accelerate our unification with the all.
For a very long time, materialist science has recognized the existence of two important concepts, matter and motion. Matter is that which moves and motion is changes in matter. However, Bell’s theorem seems to show us that “all” simply is. Therefore, the changes must originate within ourselves.
There are no comparisons we can carry over from our real world into the world of quantum mechanics, so we must just plunge in and tell it like it is. The central mystery is described in what is called the Double-slit Experiment,1 which goes something like this:
Imagine a barrier of some sort, such as a concrete wall, with two tiny holes in it. They can be elongated or round. On the one side of the wall is a screen with sensitive detectors on it that are sensitive to whatever we are going to send through the holes. On the other side of the holes is a device that shoots quantum things – photons of light, electrons, or whatever.
In our everyday world we can observe how waves diffract through a wall by working with a similar setup in a tank of water. A wave-making machine sends waves toward the concrete wall. The waves pass through the two holes and set up two identical little wave patterns on the other side. The intensity of each individual wave pattern, taken alone with one or other of the holes closed off, is expressed as H2, or height (amplitude) squared. But, with both holes open, there is a very large peak intensity exactly in line with the two holes, which can be expressed as I=(H+J)2. This means that the sum of the two wave intensities is not H2+J2. At the points where the two daughter wave patterns touch each other, they set up an interference pattern. So, the extra term added into the equation is the contribution due to interference and accounts for all the energy whether negative or positive. For a water tank the amplitudes are real numbers, for quantum waves” they are complex numbers, and what is squared is the magnitude, thus interference patterns are somewhat different in the two cases, but the idea is the same. So much for waves.
Now, if we take solid things, such asbullets being fired from a machine gun2 at the concrete walls, we would not find the interference term. We would find a lot of bullets close to one spot (some can ricochet from the interior of the hole) on the other side of each hole. Period.
Now, what do you think is going to happen when we shoot quantum things through the holes? It is natural to believe that each individual electron or photon must go through one hole or the other, like bullets, particularly since we have slowed down our quantum gun to shoot one electron at a time. Guess again.
When we block off one hole or the other, we get the usual pattern for single-hole experiments – that is, a whole bunch of electrons hit the same spot. But, when we open up both holes, we do not get the pattern we would get for bullets. We get the wave diffraction pattern. And, if we do the experiment a thousand times with only one electron released in each experiment, adding them all together we still get the wave diffraction pattern. A single electron or photon, on its way to the wall, knows whether or not the other hole is open and that it must obey the statistical laws.3
When we try to observe which of the holes the electron goes through, we always see the electron at one hole or the other, never both at once. And, if we continue to watch, the pattern built up on our detector is exactly that as for the bullets. So, we can only conclude that the electron knows not only which hole is open, it knows if we are watching it.4
When we try to observe the electron, it collapses into a particle, but when we are not looking, it seems that it goes through both holes. It is as though the world keeps all its options open until the very last instant of observation. So, from an array of ghost – or potential – electrons, our observation crystallizes one and collapses the wave.
So what are we seeing and experiencing with our five senses? Could it be that each moment of reality is like a slice of the “all”, similar to a slide on a carousel slide projector?
When we look at the table, the chair, the salad and the dog, they seem to be solid and stable – but the physicist can assure us that they are a dance of atoms ever moving into and out of being – the atoms making up the table a minute from now being perhaps an entirely different group from the atomic constitution a moment before.
So, we might say that reality is a continuous flow or invisible something passing momentarily into a focused object, much like a light shining through a slide creates an image upon a screen. What is the screen? you ask. We will come to that when we discuss the nature of matter itself. But for now, let us say that the slide is our mind and the source of light is our consciousness. But the ultimate source of this consciousness is problematical, as will be seen in the following excerpt from the Cassiopaean transcripts:
June 17, 1995
Q: (L) I would like to ask a little bit about synchronicity. I would like to know what is the source of synchronous events. Is it a multiple source or is it something that comes out of the percipient’s own mind or … (J) Is it random?
A: It involves aspects in every imaginable state of reality merging together in what could best be described, if seen visually, as a massive mosaic in perfect balance. But, that is not adequate to a response for your question, however, hopefully, maybe you can contemplate the visual image presented and help yourself to learn a more complete answer.
Q: (T) Several sessions back when we were discussing perpendicular realities you were talking about something that happened to me and that I had to look back over my life and analyze my relationships with other people from a certain point up until now and you said that this was a perpendicular reality. What is the definition of a perpendicular reality?
A: The perpendicular reality primarily, though not exclusively, refers to one’s life path and how one’s life path fits together in the cycle or in a wheel when connected with those of a similar life path. And, oddly enough, relates very closely to the previous question involving synchronicity. If you can picture an inlaid wheel formed by a circle within a circle, and adjoining partitions in a perfect balance, that would be the best representation of perpendicular reality for it does not completely involve one individual’s experience, but rather a group of individual’s experience for the progression of a greater purpose, if you understand what we mean. This is what we mean when we say: perpendicular reality. Picture again, a circle within a circle adjoined by equally spaced partitions in a perfect cycle. That is perpendicular reality.
Q: (T) You had us draw this symbol and put seven spokes or partitions between the two circles.
Q: (T) Is seven the optimal number?
A: Seven is always the optimal number. There are seven levels of density. This reflects through all phases of reality.
Q: (T) You also said that each of us in this group came from a different perpendicular reality.
A: That is correct.
Q: (T) Is it at this point where we merge our different perpendicular realities in order to learn from each other’s experiences?
A: That could be described as correct.
Q: (L) It was said at the time that the inner circle was the connection with this reality and that the outer circle and connecting segments were where the perpendicular reality is “joined with the Wave.” Is it implied in that statement that the forming of this conduit through these perpendicular realities is instrumental in bringing forth this wave, bringing forth this change, this dimensional shift, or density shift, and is that something that is being done in other places?
A: We wish to congratulate you for asking six questions in one.
Q: (T) One more question and you would have a perfect perpendicular question! Mirth! (L) Are we connected in some way with the Wave, individually and as a group?
A: Well, of course. Everything is connected to the Wave.
Q: (L) Are we, by connecting into this wheel, so to speak, activating the wave in some way?
A: We are not clear about your interesting interpretation there, but it is true that you have an interactive relationship with the Wave. As stated before, you are in an interactive relationship with the Wave in a sense, in that the Wave is a part of your reality, always has been and always will be. And, of course, it does involve your progress through the grand cycle. And the perpendicular reality, again is, of course, an advancement from the core outward which is yet another reflection of all reality and all that exists. Now, we wish to return to the visual representation as mentioned previously. If you notice the core circle connects with all seven sections to the outer circle. Now, picture that outer circle as being an ever expanding circle, and each one of the seven segments as being an ever expanding line. Of course, now, this will expand outward in a circular or cyclical pattern. Please picture visually an expanding outer circle and a non-expanding inner circle. Contemplate that and then please give us your feelings as to what that represents.
Q: (L) Does it represent an expansion of our knowledge and consciousness?
A: That’s part of it.
Q: (L) Does it represent also expanding influence of what and who we are on the reality which is around us?
A: That is correct.
Q: (L) Does it also represent a more …
A: Oop! We detected a slippage of your visual representation! Contemplate, if you will, the ever-expanding outer circle and the non-expanding inner circle, and, of course, the seven partitions also moving outwardly. What type of shape does that form in your mind’s eye?
Q: (L) A wheel?
A: Is that all?
Q: (T) A pie?
A: Keep going.
Q: (L) An eye.
A: Now we are starting to turn it into a sphere! Why would it turn into a sphere?
Q: (L) How can it turn into a sphere?
A: How can it not!
Q: (SV) It is going in all directions; it’s not just flat …
A: Is a straight line a straight line or a … ?
Q: (L) Oh, you’re not talking about a circle?
A: We are talking about a circle. What becomes of a circle if you expand it outward forever?
Q: (T) The outer circle is used to encompass more and more.
A: And what shape does it begin to take on? I want you to look at this outer circle expanding outward!
Q: (J) Are we to assume that the seven spokes remain the same size in relation to the circle?
A: Well, answer that question for yourself.
Q: (L) Okay, we are looking at it as a plane representation. As a flat surface.
A: Well, what happens to a flat surface if you extend it outward forever?
Q: (L) Well, we don’t know. That, that … (SV) It keeps on going.
A: It keeps on going?
Q: (L) Yeah, bigger and flatter!
A: It does? What happens to a line if you extend it forever and ever?
Q: (L) It keeps on going.
A: It does?
Q: (L) Um hmmm!
A: Where does it go to?
Q: (SV) Forever. (J) Back to itself. (L) We don’t know that.
A: Oh, someone said “back to itself.”
Q: (J) Like a snake taking hold of its own tail.
A: Why don’t we know that?
Q: (L) Because we don’t. It is conjectured that space is curved …
A: “Because we don’t know.” Now, why don’t we know?
Q: (L) Because we haven’t been there.
A: Had Columbus been outside of Italy and Spain?
Q: (L) Okay, we are going to assume that if it keeps on expanding it will eventually come back to itself …
A: No, no, no wait! We asked a question!
Q: (L) Well, of course Columbus had an idea that there was something but he hadn’t been there, no. But he went and checked it out.
A: Did he have just and idea?
Q: (L) Well, pretty much, I guess.
A: Hmmm. That’s not the way we remember it. The way we remember it is that he had instinct and imagination and when he married his instinct with imagination, it became reality. And, when it became reality, he had created a reality which he was fully confident would be manifest in the physical third density reality. It wasn’t that he was confident. He knew it to be so. He didn’t stop himself by adding prejudice to the equation which is what you are doing when you say: “Well, we don’t know what happens because we have never been there!” Think logically, please. We have told you so many times that everything is a grand cycle. If it’s a grand cycle, we have told you about circles within circles. We have told you about cycles. We have told you about short wave cycles and long wave cycles. Now, after all this information that you have asked of us, which we have more than happily given to you, would you expect that a straight line would just go out forever and ever and ever as a straight line? How could it possibly do that? What happens, if you draw on you third density earth a straight line to the East or to the West or to the North or to the South?
Q: (J) It comes all the way back to itself.
A: Right …
Q: (L) Okay, so we’re living in a big globe!
A: Are we?
Q: (L) Well, that is what it sounds like, a big circle?
A: Oh, my, my, my. You need more study and learning, my dear. Need more study. Even your Albert Einstein had a theory about what happened.
Q: (L) Yes, but that was just a theory.
A: Oh, well we guess then it must be dropped. We’ll never know. It’s just a theory. Well, we’ll just forget about it.
Q: (T) I’m still expanding the circle … (SV) Me too.
A: Very good, that was the idea. It keeps going and going and going.
Q: (L) Well, mine does too, but it hasn’t come back and met anything. So, what’s the point?
A: Does there need to be a point?
Q: (L) Of course!
A: Who says? We are trying to help you learn. When do you expect to shut down this process?
Q: (J) Never.(L) Gee, I hope never.
A: Then there never is a point!
Q: (J) Point taken! (L) There is no point. [Laughter.] Well, if you expand the circle outward and continue expanding it in all directions, it pulls the seven spokes with it which encompasses more and more space in a cross section, and then turn that circle, you have a sphere.
A: Precisely. But Laura says that means we are living in a big globe. And, maybe we are.
Q: (T) Well, it wouldn’t be a big globe, so to speak, it would only be a big globe within the circle. If the circle continues to expand, it would just continue to go outward and outward and the globe would become bigger and bigger and bigger … (L) You’re making me nervous … (T) But it goes outward forever … cause there is no end to going out …
A: There isn’t?
Q: (SV) Nope.
A: Well, then maybe there’s no beginning. If there’s no end and no beginning, then what do you have?
Q: (J) The here and now.
A: The here and now which is also the future and the past. Everything that was, is and will be, all at once. This is why only a very few of your third density persons have been able to understand space travel, because even though traveling into space in your third density is every bit as third density as lying on your bed at night in your comfortable home, the time reference is taken away. Something that you hold very close to your bosom as if it were your mother. And, it is the biggest illusion that you have. We have repeatedly told you over and over that there is no time, and yet, of course, you have been so brainwashed into this concept that you cannot get rid of it no matter what you do, now can you? Imagine going out into space. You’d be lost when confronted with reality that everything is completely all at one? Would you not? Picture yourself floating around in space!
Q: (T) Does the sphere keep expanding … as the circle expands and you turn the circle 180, you get a sphere. As the sphere continues to expand it, you take a point on the outer edge of the sphere in order to take the sphere about itself, you get a donut, an ever expanding inner tube. If you take that and twist it, you get an even larger inner tube. It just continues to expand and encompasses more space …
A: And now, when you merge densities, or traverse densities, what you have is the merging of physical reality and ethereal reality, which involves thought form versus physicality. When you can merge those perfectly, what you realize then, is that the reason there is no beginning and no end is merely because there is no need for you to contemplate a beginning or an end after you have completed your development. When you are at union with the One at seventh density, that is when you have accomplished this and then there is no longer any need for difference between physical and ethereal forms.
Q: (L) On the subject of time as we discussed the other day: we talked about the fact that at the constant of light there is no time, there is no matter, there is no gravity, but that any unit, infinitesimally small to the downward side of the constant of light, suddenly there is gravity and suddenly there is matter. And we asked what is it that congeals this matter out of the energy of light, so to speak, and I believe that the answer we received was that it was consciousness from seventh level. From our perspective, would it be possible to achieve this constant and move through to the other side of it, or at least stay fixed with it, without dematerializing? Is the speed of light interconnected with the state of no time and no gravity?
A: No in an absolute sense, in a third density sense.
Q: (L) Okay, if you are in fourth density, for example, does everything move at the speed of light and is that why there is no time there and no gravity?
A: No. That is an incorrect concept …
Q: (T) There is no speed of light, light is everywhere.
A: Precisely. There is no speed of light in fourth density because there is no need for any “speed.” Speed, itself, is a third density concept. You remember, all there is is lessons. That’s it! There’s nothing else. It is all for your perception. For our perception. For all consciousness. That’s all there is.
Q: (L) Well, I am still trying to get a handle on what it is, what is the source of this gravity, this state of time because they seem to be so intimately connected.
A: Let us ask you a question now: do you remember going to school?
Q: (L) Yes.
A: What did you do in third grade?
Q: (L) A lot of things. I learned cursive writing. I learned to multiply and divide.
A: Do you remember what you did in first grade?
Q: (L) Yes.
A: Please name one.
Q: (L) Learned to count in several ways. Learned to read and write.
A: Okay. When you were in the process of learning to multiply and divide, did you drop your pen or pencil and steadfastly return in your mind to first grade and try and figure out why you had to learn the alphabet?
Q: (L) No.
A: Why not?
Q: (L) Because I already knew it.
A: You already knew it. In other words, you did not need to learn the alphabet because you already knew it. Correct?
Q: (L) Yes.
A: Are you going to need to learn about the speed of light when there is no longer a speed of light?
Q: (L) Well, that is what I am trying to do. Once you learn it, maybe you are not subject to its lessons anymore. I mean, you get concepts presented, you absorb them, practice them, they become part of you and then you go to the next thing.
A: Yes, but you are asking about the speed of light as relates to fourth density and above density levels and we are telling you that there is no speed of light there because there is no need for that, because once you reach fourth density level, you have learned the lessons of third density level.
Q: (L) Well, if a person on third density gets into some kind of vehicle and achieves light speed, does that automatically translate them into fourth density?
A: Could you please point out one of these vehicles?
Q: (L) Well, we don’t have any … yet.
A: Do you expect to have any before you go to fourth density?
Q: (L) No.
A: Then the lesson is learned, yes?
Q: (L) Sort of.
A: If you trust in what we are saying, which is in response to what you are asking, then the lesson is learned. Now, contemplate, because all there is is lessons.
Q: (L) Well, you talk about time being an illusion, time being something we hold dear to us like a mother, and that sort of thing, and I would be perfectly happy to let go of time …
A: You do! Let go!
Q: (L) Well, it is one thing to want to do it in your mind and another thing altogether to do it in your system, your internal operating system.
A: Your internal operating system?
Q: (T) Is that DOS or WARM?
A: Could you please explain what an internal operating system is?
Q: (L) I guess it is the subconscious mind.
A: It is?
Q: (L) Maybe.
A: My, my.
Q: (T) The subconscious mind has no idea of time.
(J) Time is an artificial constraint … (L) For example: a person can have a belief about prosperity in their conscious mind and can talk about it and say affirmations and all kinds of positive things for themselves, and yet, for some reason that individual continually lives on the edge of poverty because something keeps happening that they keep screwing up to keep themselves at the level of poverty. And, when you start digging around in their subconscious mind you find out that somewhere there is the belief in poverty or there is a past life connection where they feel they need or deserve to be poor, so, their internal operating system takes precedence over their conscious beliefs and thoughts. That is what I am talking about here.
A: Yes, but what is your point?
Q: (L) The point is that you may say that you would like to get rid of time and you may understand it conceptually, but something internal keeps you tied to it. How do you get rid of that internal connection?
A: Something internal keeps you tied to it?
Q: (J) Like circadian rhythms, it’s physical.
A: We feel you are missing the point.
Q: (L) Well, maybe I am.
A: You see, we speak to all of you when we say this. It’s now time for you, as individuals, to try to move away, as much as possible, not to force yourselves, of course, but to try and move away at your own pace as much as possible, from the constraints of third density. You have all learned lessons to the level where you are more than ready to begin to prepare for fourth density. Third density involves a level of physicality and restriction and restraint and all of the things that go along with those, that you no longer need. So, therefore, even though we understand that at times it may feel comfortable to cling to this, there is time for you, and there is that word again, it is time for you to consider moving ahead and get ready for fourth density and not to be concerned with such things as time or how to free yourself from the illusion of time. That really is not important. That’s like the third grade student delving into mathematics and stopping everything to go back and contemplate the ABCs and why it isn’t CBA or BAC. There really is no point. It is what it is. They are what they are.
Q: (L) That is what I want to know, what is it?
A: Why do you need to know this?
Q: (L) Because I am curious. What is time?
A: We have already told you that it is a nonexistent, artificial creation of illusion for the point of learning at the level where you are at or were, and once you have left that level, you no longer need it.
Q: (T) Maybe one of the lessons is to learn not to worry about time. Once you learn that time is not real … (SV) Tell that to your boss!
A: If something is not real, is there any concern in worrying about what it is? Imagine a conversation between two people: Billy and Gene. Billy says to Gene, “There is no such thing as time.” Gene says, “Oh, really? But I want to know what it is.’ Billy says, “But I just told you there is no such thing. Time does not exist. It is not real in any form, in any frame of reference, in any form of reality, any level of density. It simply does not exist.” And, Gene says: “Oh, that’s interesting. Now, again, what is this time?”
Q: (L) Point taken. (T) Do you wear a watch? (L) No. (SV) I have to because of my schedule. (T) But, you wear the watch because other people believe in time? (SV) Yes. (T) And that is out of courtesy for their belief, not your belief.
A: That is precisely correct. While you are still in this third density it is still necessary for you to conform, to a certain extent, to the ways of others who are more comfortable within the realm of third density. But, as we have stated previously, perhaps it is “time” for you to begin preparing for fourth density and not concern yourself any more than is absolutely necessary with all the where’s and why’s and what for’s of third density reality. This truly is behind you, now, and we know that because we can see from all levels six through one and back again in full cycle.
Q: (L) Going along with that statement, not too long ago I asked a question about the purpose of this group and the answer was that if we knew, or, more specifically if I knew, I would become “unglued.” Was that meant literally?
A: Oh, yes certainly. Every single bone in your body is going to unglue itself from every other.
Q: (L) Well, since you are saying that it is time for us to begin preparing for fourth density, maybe it is time to deal with that question?
A: Well, perhaps you are trying to steer us, now. This is amusing because, of course, you sought our help, now we guess you are going to put us in your place and vice versa. But, actually, in a way, that is what is already happening, because, again, we must remind, that we are you in the future and we have already experienced all that you are experiencing. And, of course, we are experiencing as it is always being experienced. But, it is important to note that you have been making progress despite our occasional chidings, and we are very proud of the progress you have been making. Also, we want to remind you again not to worry about the extent of the progress or the direction it is taking. Just let it happen. All knowledge that it is absolutely necessary for you to gain to sustain this progress will be gained at the appropriate point in … [chorus] time. Therefore, not to worry as it will all fall into place, as we have told you. Now, we do not feel that you are ready, as yet, to know what your ultimate purpose is, nor is it necessary for you to know, and it certainly would not be helpful in any way, so we ask again that you please not worry about that because when the “time” comes for you to know, you will.
Q: (SV) I want to ask one question: If there is no time, there is no past and no future; there are no past lives and no future lives, there is no such thing as reincarnation, then how can you be us …
A: Yes, there is reincarnation. You are getting ahead of yourself there. We never said there is no reincarnation.
Q: (SV) But, if there is no time? (J) It is our perception of it. (L) It is all happening simultaneously. We are having all of these lifetimes at once. (SV) Is there a way that we can connect ourselves with all our other selves?
A: Picture it this way: we will access some of your memory banks and give you another reference which, interestingly enough, fits very closely with the perpendicular reality wheel that we described earlier. You know what a slide projector looks like? To give you some feeling of what this expanded nature of reality really is, picture yourself watching a big slide presentation with a big slide wheel on the projector. At any given point along the way you are watching one particular slide. But, all the rest of the slides are present on the wheel, are they not? And, of course, this fits in with the perpendicular reality, which fits in with the circles within circles and cycles within cycles, which also fits in the Grand Cycle, which also fits in with what we have told you before: All there is is lessons. That’s all there is, and we ask that you enjoy them as you are watching the slide presentation …
Q: (J) In that analogy, the light that shines through the slide, as it projects it upon the screen, is our perception.
A: And, if you look back at the center of the projector, you see the origin and essence of all creation itself, which, is level seven where you are in union with the One.
If the origin of the light of consciousness is at seventh density, and it projects through consciousness units, or individual perception, we come to the idea that archetypal images may be extremely important. Archetypes are the patterns of human, societal, and national interactions as conceived, and created by beings of higher densities. And, it may be that these archetypal images are viewed or perceived by those who we have come to know as prophets.
In more recent times I discovered a curious reference to the above remark by the Cassiopaeans about becoming unglued. Author Ira Friedlander writes in The Whirling Dervishes:
Everything in the world is invisible except that which we make semi-visible. By the introduction of awareness, all things can become visible. The aim of the dervish is to open the eyes of the heart and see infinity in eternity. His goal is to loosen himself from the earth’s glue which binds him and become one with God, to become a channel for His Light. (Friedlander 1975)
It must be noted that in Sufi terms, the eyes of the heart do not refer to emotion or love in any sense that Western minds have tended to interpret it. In fact, the term heart in Eastern mysticism refers more to the consciousness of the soul – awareness – than to the many corruptions of this term that pass in New Age teachings as “the way of the heart.” Mystic, revolutionary writer and Sufism teacher, Mansur al Hallaj, has said: “When truth has overwhelmed a human heart, it empties it of all that is not truth. When God loves a being, He kills everything that is not Him.”
And that brings us back to the remark of the Cassiopaeans:
A: The perpendicular reality primarily, though not exclusively, refers to one’s life path and how one’s life path fits together in the cycle or in a wheel when connected with those of a similar life path. And, oddly enough, relates very closely to the previous question involving synchronicity. If you can picture an inlaid wheel formed by a circle within a circle, and adjoining partitions in a perfect balance, that would be the best representation of perpendicular reality for it does not completely involve one individual’s experience, but rather a group of individual’s experience for the progression of a greater purpose. [Columbus] had instinct and imagination and when he married his instinct with imagination, it became reality. And, when it became reality, he had created a reality which he was fully confident would be manifest in the physical third density reality. It wasn’t that he was confident. He knew it to be so. He didn’t stop himself by adding prejudice to the equation which is what you are doing when you say, “Well, we don’t know what happens because we have never been there!” … The core circle connects with all seven sections to the outer circle. Now, picture that outer circle as being an ever expanding circle …
Q: (L) Does it represent an expansion of our knowledge and consciousness?
A: That’s part of it.
Q: (L) Does it represent also expanding influence of what and who we are on the reality which is around us?
A: That is correct.
And here the question must be asked: why have we created a world in which material extinction is a real possibility? Where has the human race gone wrong? Are we truly on the edge of an abyss, losing our balance, preparing to fall into a hole so deep and dark that we shall never come out of it?
What is this mysterious gap between intent/desire and physical manifestation? What darkness exists in our subconscious minds that has created a world so hostile and uncaring? What power separates us from knowledge of our inner creative selves and leaves us exposed to suffering and pain?
For, no matter how one defines reality – as a self-created manifestation, or as an accomplished fact thrust upon us – the reality of suffering must be seen as a consequence of this separation. And, if the world of matter is created and maintained by us, what are we doing about it that is new and different?
For millennia we have worked with the idea that pain and suffering is a consequence of willful disobedience. If this is so, then man’s being is a blight on the cosmos, and this is certainly the core belief system that is inherent in all philosophies and teachings that promote faith in this or that savior or mode of salvation. And we have to note, because our lives may depend on it, that it simply hasn’t worked.
If we accept that, for whatever reason, some aspect of creation has manifested the limited three dimensions in which our consciousnesses find themselves, how would we describe this condition and its potential for change?
We usually consider the past as no longer existing. The future does not exist either and the present refers to the momentary transition of nonexistence into nonexistence. How absurd that seems, but trying to understand it in linear terms, that’s what you end up with.
Physicist John Archibald Wheeler, who takes the lesson of quantum physics seriously, writes:
The point is that the Universe is a grand synthesis, putting itself together all the time as a whole. Its history is not a history as we usually conceive history. It is not one thing happening after another. It is a totality in which what happens “now” gives reality to what happened “then,” perhaps even determines what happened then. (Wheeler 2000, 338)
But, if it is true that only now exists, then the problem is our concept of time. We regard time as linear, long or short, an endless line, a progression from past into future. But this creates an insurmountable problem. On a line, now is a mathematical point of infinitesimal smallness – it has no dimension. By scientific logic, it does not exist!
Russian philosopher P.D. Ouspensky, in his Tertium Organum, illustrates this for us using the example of a snail on a journey:
We know nothing about its inner life, but we may be sure that its perception is very different from ours. In all probability a snail’s sensations of its surroundings are very vague. It probably feels warmth, cold, light, darkness, hunger, and instinctively (i.e. incited by pleasure/pain guidance) it crawls toward the uneaten edge of the leaf it sits on, and draws away from a dead leaf. Its movements are governed by pleasure/pain. It always advances toward the one and retreats from the other. It always moves on one line, from the unpleasant towards the pleasant. And, in all probability it senses and knows nothing except this line. This line constitutes the whole of its world. All the sensations entering from the outside are sensed by the snail on this line of motion. And, these come to it out of time – from potentiality they become actuality. For a snail, the whole of our Universe exists in the future and the past, i.e., in time. (Ouspensky 1920)
The snail is probably not self-aware – that is, aware that it is surging across so vast a landscape, all of which exists simultaneously, of which the snail could be aware if it were possible to expand its awareness through some process of metamorphosis and lift it high above the garden to expand its scope. But, it only perceives the various phenomena – the leaf, the grass, the twig, the sand, the walkway – at the moment it interacts with them. They are events of long or short duration, past and future, which “come to pass” as the snail inches along.
In the same manner do we experience our world, our five sense organs are merely feelers by means of which we touch and interpret the world through the mathematical constructs of our brains and in the limited terms of three-dimensional consciousness. Scientific gadgetry only lengthens our feelers a bit.
Imagine a consciousness not limited by the conditions of sense perception. Such a consciousness can rise above the plane on which we move; it can see far beyond the bounds of the circle illumined by our ordinary consciousness; it can see that not only does the line along which we move exist, but also all the other lines perpendicular to it which we cross (in our series of nows). Rising above the plane, this consciousness will be able to see the plane, make sure that it actually is a plane and not only a line, then it will be able to see the past and the future living side by side and existing simultaneously.
The past and future cannot be nonexistent. They must exist together somewhere, only we do not see them. … We must admit that the past, the present and the future do not differ from one another in any way, that the only thing that exists is the Eternal Now of Indian philosophy. (Ouspensky 1920)
The Alpha and Omega. But we do not see this – at least very few of us do – and then we only see imperfectly, “through a glass darkly.” We are snails crossing the landscape of the Universe, aware only momentarily of the earth, the leaf, the flower, or the raindrop before us. At any given moment we are only aware of a small fragment of the Universe and we continue to deny the existence of everything else – namely the coexistent past and future and the possibility of perceiving it. The Cassiopaeans refer to it as a state in which a person merges densities, or traverses densities. It is the merging of physical reality and ethereal reality, which involves thought form versus physicality. In other words, superluminal communication with the self in the future.
January 14, 1995
Q: (L) You have told us in the past that you are us in the future and that you are [traveling on the Wave], moving this way to merge with us.
Q: (L) As we measure time, how far in the future are you us?
A: Indeterminate as you measure time.
Q: (L) Does this mean that at the point in time when the Wave arrives on the earth in this upcoming event that you have given us the information to plot the ETA, is that the time at which you will merge with us and become us in the future?
A: No, that is not the correct concept.
Q: (L) You have said that when the Wave arrives that you will merge with us. Is this the same thing that you are talking about when you say that you are us in the future?
A: No. You are again slipping into trying to apply 3rd density logic to higher levels of density reality. We are trying to help everyone to advance.
Q: (L) So, we are not talking about the same event …
A: What is “future,” anyway?
Q: (L) The future is simultaneous events, just different locales in space/time, just a different focus of consciousness, is that correct?
A: Yes, so if that is true, why try to apply linear thinking here, you see, we are merging with you right now!
Q: (T) So, what you are trying to say is that when the Wave comes it is going to take us to fourth density, if we are ready, but we are not actually going to merge with you in sixth density at that point, but we may experience a merge at that point because all points of focus merge during transition from one density to another?
A: Partly correct, partly way off.
Q: (J) What part is right and what part is wrong?
(T) The Wave is going to take those of us who are, at that point ready, to move us into fourth density, is this part correct?
Q: (T) Which part of it is open?
A: You are a 4th density candidate.
Q: (T) So, we are fourth density candidates but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we will make it into fourth density, true?
Q: (T) As fourth density candidates, anyone that is, when the Wave comes, if they have reached the correct frequency vibration, and have raised themselves up to the point that the Wave will take them, they will, at that point, move into fourth density, true?
A: Close enough.
Q: (T) Now, when those who move into fourth density make the move, will they experience a completeness or merge with all other densities of their being, at that point, even if it is for a short time?
A: For one immeasurably small instant, this is what is meant by “illumination”!
Q: (T) But, for that small instant, because there really is no time, maybe an instant or an aeon, depending on how any individual might measure it, we might experience oneness with ourselves?
A: It may seem to last “forever.”
Q: (L) Is this what is known as the “rapture?”
A: Some have attempted to explain instinctive thought patterns this way.
There are two main theories of the future – that of a predestined future and that of a free future. The theory of predestination asserts that every future event is the result of past events and if we know all the past then we could know all the future. The idea of a free future is based on quantum probabilities. The future is either only partially determined or undetermined because of the varied interactions possible at any given point.
This idea of free will says that quite deliberate volitional acts may bring about a subsequent change in events. Those who support predestination say that so-called voluntary actions are actually the results of incompletely understood causes that have made them imperative acts. In short, nothing is accidental. On the one hand we have the cold predestination – come what may, nothing can be changed – and on the other hand we have a reality of which is only a point on some sort of needle we call the present, surrounded on all sides by the gulf of nonexistence: a world that is born and that dies every moment.
Ouspensky unifies these views:
At every given moment all the future of the world is predestined and existing, but it is predestined conditionally, i.e., there must be one or another future in accordance with the direction of events of the given moment, if no new factor comes in. And a new factor can come in only from the side of consciousness and the will resulting from it. (Ouspensky 1920)
In other words, the snail can choose to change his direction by overcoming his instinctive urge for pleasure and avoidance of pain. But this can only come about by becoming aware of the probable course he is on. If his natural tendencies are leading him to an abyss that will plunge him into a blazing inferno below, then it would behoove him to learn exactly what it is he must do to avoid it.
In the past, what is behind us lies not only in what was, but also in what could have been. In the same way, in the future lies not only what will be but also what may be. (Ouspensky 1920)
All exists simultaneously – it is only we who, singly and collectively, can change the focus of our consciousness. And we can only make this change if we have objective awareness of the true state of our reality.
Now we must ask the question: Why can we not perceive reality as it is? Why can we not enlarge our perception – why are we chained in this painful existence we call reality? Can our consciousness get beyond the conditions of three dimensions without fundamental alterations in material existence? How long can we sustain it there? In order to live in that state of expanded consciousness is it necessary for the fundamental nature of our individual reality to change dramatically? I believe it is.
Quantum theory may demonstrate that all that exists, past, present, and future, is combined into a single entity whose farthest parts are joined in an immediate manner. No field mechanism is required for this oneness. Perhaps this entity carries the Wave. But, as the Cassiopaeans have pointed out:
December 10, 1994
A: The Wave is transport mode.
Q: (L) Is that transport mode for many beings?
A: Yes. Wave is “crowded.”
Q: (L) Are you coming to invade us?
A: No, merge.
Q: (L) Are others coming with the intention of invading us?
Q: (T) So, everybody out in the whole Universe who want a piece of the earth action are on this wave?
A: At realm border crossing. … Huge wave of UFO activity. All manner and origins. Just you wait, it will give you chills and that feeling in the pit of your stomach. Many aliens will appear and we will be visible too. Think of it as a convention. All must awaken to this. It is happening right now. The whole populace will play individual roles according to their individual frequencies. This is only the beginning …
Q: (L) How do you relate to the Pleiadians?
A: Pleiadians are communicating with many others; we are bursting upon the scene with you, but we are essentially the same, just at slightly different focus points on the realm border.
Q: (L) Well, why is all this activity happening now?
A: The grand cycle is about to close presenting a unique opportunity.
Q: (L) Does this mean that this is a unique opportunity to change the future?
A: Future, past and present.
Q: (L) Well, that sort of makes me think that if things are not changed somewhat at this point on the grand cycle that things could get really direfully screwed up, is that correct?
A: But they won’t. You have not grasped concept.
Q: (L) Yeah I have, I got you, I understand. It’s just part of the cycle. It’s all a cycle. I mean their being here is part of us being here …
A: You do??? [giant question mark inscribed on board]
Q: (L) Do what?
A: You said you understood concept. Really? Learn.
Q: (V) I am just concerned about the previously mentioned “convention” …
A: Convention is because of realm border crossing.
Q: (L) And why is there a convention attending this realm border crossing? I mean, is it just a “really big shew”?
A: It is an opportunity.
Q: (V) As in the windows are all opening at one time so that all these beings can get in at one time?
A: As in an opportunity to affect whole Universe. Picture cosmic playing of “Pomp and Circumstance” AKA “Hope and Glory.”
Q: (L) So, do realm borders have something to do with location?
A: Realm borders ride waves.
Q: (L) And where do these waves come from?
A: They constantly cycle.
Q: (L) Does it have something to do with the movement of the planet Earth into it or does it move onto us?
A: Either or.
Q: (F) Does this convention or convergence have something to do with the fact that there are living beings on the earth?
A: Yes. And because you are at critical juncture in development.
Q: (L) Are the sixth density Orions, also known as Transient Passengers, are they the same TPs that have been referred to as the ones who genetically engineered us or put us here?
A: Close. They are Wave riders.
Q: (L) Are those groups that ride the Wave, is riding the wave part of the definition of Transient Passengers?
Q: (L) Do they like to ride this Wave?
A: Is it “fun” for you to live on Earth?
Q: (L) Well, I like living on Earth a great deal, but I don’t like pain and suffering, and I don’t like man’s inhumanity to man and I don’t like to see other people suffer.
A: Do you live on Earth for amusement?
Q: (L) I would like to live on Earth for amusement but I haven’t had a whole heck of a lot of laughs since I have been here this time. I would like to have a life on the planet where things were pleasant …
A: You misunderstood.
Q: (L) I see what you are saying. That’s where they live because that’s where they live.
What is of particular interest in the above discussion of the Wave is the fact that different sources of information apparently come from different focus points on the Wave. Putting that together with the idea of perpendicular realities, or the connection of certain human beings with the Wave in an interactive way, or merging, as well as the idea of archetypes as slides through which the consciousness of 7th density projects itself into consciousness units, we come to the idea the Cassiopaeans mentioned above, which is that “the whole populace will play individual roles according to their individual frequencies.” This must mean that each individual is a manifestation of the frequency with which they connect to the Wave.
The study of wave motion is a precise science and all waves follow the same fundamental rules, which are clearly demonstrable both practically and mathematically. One of these rules states that a wave takes its character from what is doing the waving. Also, waves go through exactly determined cycles, which have phases that can be known or estimated. Since this is the case, what we perceive as reality is nothing more than the myriad oscillations of the primeval waveform, or 7th density. It is implied in physics that a wave usually has a waver, so we may assume that our reality has a waver also.
We must perceive that man is an oscillation of the absolute and, as such, has the potential of being augmented by other waveform expressions of energy and thus expanding, so to speak, his own awareness. Just as certain mechanical aids can augment the perception of certain ranges of light such as infrared, ultraviolet, x-rays, and radio waves, so might personal energies be synchronized by psychic means, or even, at the very deepest level, move into phase with the primal wave itself.
This is what I believe happens during mystical states of being which bring about enlightenment or during which information is received from Higher Sources. This brings us to ask the question: Who or what is doing the waving?
The descriptions of the greater reality beyond time and space are, of necessity, beyond words. In many instances, the individual receiving such information indicates the impossibility of explaining what they have experienced. So, I think we can assume that the finite nature of our physical brains is self-limiting in a certain sense. But they can certainly do much, much more than what we consider to be normal.
The brain is an instrument devised to focus reality in mathematical constructs – interpreting waveforms as material objects. The abilities of certain individuals to achieve such higher states of consciousness in the realms of physiological science is being documented by fantastic examples every day. We should understand that these abilities might extend even into the realms of perceiving the motions of the vast primal wave in other ways. These individuals might be able to perceive the effects of other waveforms and, depending upon the amplitudes and energies, predict the outcomes of certain motions, even, perhaps, in very precise terms based upon the direction which consciousness is taking.
The new research in physics sounds provocatively like ancient mystical teachings, yet I believe that the true nature of the reality behind our world is beyond quantum mechanics and field theory. We may find that much truth was known by the peoples of the past and that they did, in fact, express deep, mysterious, realities in their poetic and obscure messages. Mystics and seers perceive quantum-like states, which are demonstrably difficult to translate into language. Additionally, with the passage of time and changes in word usage, we find a very great barrier to understanding.
There are numerous instances in literature and history when individuals have claimed to achieve just such an elevation of consciousness – at least for periods of time. There is much information pertaining to how this state may be achieved, which involves great self-discipline and extended preparation, but under certain circumstances may occur spontaneously.
The experience of viewing simultaneous, cause/effect reality may be extremely difficult to maintain when one is constantly being bombarded by three-dimensional interpretation and the difficulty of translating this into linguistic expressions may be even more difficult.
Imagine the difficulty of explaining to a snail the expanse of an acre of ground! Mystics and Seers have attempted to do just that for millennia with the result that the vast majority of humankind have absolutely and totally misunderstood these concepts. And, there is no worse lie than a truth misunderstood by those who hear it. The greatest lies are the dark and evil systems of religion created by those who do not understand. (Of course, that is not to say that a religion based on Truth could not be created by those who do understand, as seems to have been the case in the religion of Paleolithic civilzations.)
Until quite recent times, science has lumped all psychic or mystical states under the heading of pathological or unhealthy conditions of the mind. Many scientists still hold this opinion. There are conditions of pseudo-mystical perversion, purely psychopathic states and conscious deceit that are often manifested in churches and cults around the globe and have been so for centuries.
How do you separate the true from the false?
If a mystical state can be defined as cognition under conditions of expanded consciousness, what may the results be? William James, in Varieties of Religious Experience gives a checklist:
1. Mystical states give knowledge, which nothing else can give
2. Mystical states give knowledge of the real world with all its attributes
3. The mystical states of men belonging to different ages and different peoples show astonishing similarity and at times complete identity
4. The results of mystical experience are totally illogical from our ordinary point of view.
I would like to pose another question: maybe we ought to look at our reality here on this Earth in a different fashion? In the human being, the pre-birth life of the fetus is as different from the afterbirth life of the human as life, perhaps, is from death. Does death mean annihilation? Surely not since we know that our material world comes into being from that which can be neither seen nor measured. And, if the real deeper reality of the world passes into three dimensions as a phase, might we not assume that the reality, itself, could do the same? That is, if our observation of the life of an individual human is a microcosm, perhaps the material world is a gestational state – a preparation for an existence of an entirely different order in quantum terms. Preparation for a fundamental transformation of matter itself?
Although there is a great movement toward transcendentalism, this movement cannot transform due to the fact that the fundamental forces of the world are antithetical to this physical reality. While we all might like to think we can transform our world by thinking positively, we must remember that there is a great deal of scientific evidence that transformations of the planet have repeatedly been cataclysmic. A philosophy that ignores this fact is courting disaster.
It may be that their focus upon a New Age quite literally contributes energy to the dissolution of the current age in a manner that follows scientific principles. To think that the transition will occur by thought alone ignores certain very important scientific factors. We are looking to find the threads of identity – the points of agreement in science, philosophy and religion.
Matter, as we experience it, seems to be opposed to spirit, otherwise we would easily be able to manifest and ascertain our spiritual natures from our present state of existence. Research will show that this is possible, but only on a very limited level, to very few people who work very hard and devote their lives to this pursuit (or experience severe trauma).
Therefore, in order to manifest the prophesied or projected unity of spirit and matter, either the spiritual estate must become grosser and more material, or the material estate must become finer and less dense and material. And, in order for either of these events to occur, macrocosmic quantum changes must occur according to the observable processes of microcosmic quantum mechanics.
In any event, it is my thought that the idea of the end of the world is essentially correct from many points of view – but the result is as unknown to us as adult life is to an unborn child. The obvious thing to conclude is that the fundamental three-dimensional nature of the Universe is that which must be altered in order for any of the prognosticated eschatological scenarios to manifest.
But, the understanding of this concept, if it is true, reveals a cataclysmic holocaust so soul-chilling that the psyche reels into mindless denial. Prophetic truth, revealed when the time for fulfillment draws near, gives birth to visions of primeval destruction beyond the most gripping and searing nightmare; concepts that make the obscenity of nuclear war seem like child’s play.
But, maybe not. Maybe it depends on which archetype on the Wave the mind of humanity aligns with?
The Cassiopaeans are asking us to look at the concepts of doomsday – admittedly a violent and horrendous prospect – in an entirely new light. The end may indeed be the end; the end of the world as we know it. And I mean that in a very basic sense.
But, more than that, they are asking us to understand that it is not just the end of a civilization – though it will be that, too. It is not just the beginning of the New Age – it will be that, also. But we are looking at a possibility that we may manifest the end of matter as we presently know it, and the quantum alteration of the Universe according to observable scientific principles, which will enable the earth, life and the cosmos to manifest in a new way: restoration of perfection and the Edenic state – the harmony of spirit and matter. The end that is the beginning.
Palle Yourgrau writes in Gödel Meets Einstein: Time Travel in the Gödel Universe:
Adopting … an ontological … point of view, we pose the question: where do we come from? (And where are we going?) That babies come from the womb is a familiar biological fact concerning our early bodies, but it is of no help with the present question. I thus lay down my … alarming proposition: We don’t really know where we (as babies) came from. … [Gödel wrote] “the idea that the world and everything in it has meaning and reason, and in particular a good and indubitable meaning … it follows immediately that our worldly existence, since it has in itself at most a very dubious meaning, can only be means to the end of another existence. … Since we came into existence one day in this world without knowing how-so and whence, the same can happen again in the same way in another world.” …
Birth and death, then, are changes (with respect to existence) … living … is a process that takes place in time, and … birth obviously precedes death. And that is, of course, why we naturally fear death but not our prenatal nonexistence …
… Gödel … views our embodied existence, in this world, as at best a confused and cloudy preparation for something more meaningful – in our postnatal nonexistence (i.e., nonexistence after death in this world). “Without a next life,” he writes, “the potential of each person and the preparations of this life make no sense for what would be the point of bringing forth an essence (the human being) that has so wide a range of possible (individual) developments … but is never allowed to realize one thousandth of them? … Mind, in its use, is not static but constantly developing … there is no reason why the number of mind’s states should not converge to infinity in the course of its development. … The greater part of learning will take place in the next world, and we could very well be born into the next world with latent memories of our experiences in this world.” (Yourgrau 1999, 188–192)
Now, let’s look at this idea of nonlinear dynamics in terms of specific human beings enacting an archetype, and their thoughts and actions in this world. The following excerpt is from Ark’s journals. It was written at a turning point in his life, shortly after he had spent some time in Florence. A few years earlier he had nearly died of pneumonia while in Göttingen, during which time he experienced a vision, and The Call to Adventure. When he began to return to health, he knew that he must begin to wake up, though he was not sure what this call meant for him to do. It was written in Bielefeld, Sunday, May 25, 1988:
Determination is needed. Thinking in terms of weeks and months instead of years. What is needed is setting a goal and striving to achieve it. Because as it is, I am in no way different from other people. I am drifting the same way they are drifting. My only chance is to find a different way.
Thus, I want to change my priorities. I want to change my way of living. To change to what?
I have ideal conditions. It could not be better. I am, in principle, absolutely free. So what?
I see no other way than setting and realizing goals. Setting and realizing goals. Setting and realizing. Setting and realizing.
Otherwise, there is drifting. “Life is real only when I am.” If I am living consciously, then I know that I am.
If we set goals and are not conscious, if we are not attentive, if we are not wise – then we are drifting. And, sooner or later there is a reversal in direction. I want to avoid this. But first, I need to understand what is:
Days and years are passing. I am drifting. Again I am drifting. I am thinking back. What was good and what was bad? It was good when I knew where I was going. When from my depths I designed a goal and when I was striving to get it. What is my goal today? Where do I go? Where do I want to get to? Have I reconciled myself with life? Has a crystallization occurred? Am I satisfied with it? What is my way?
I have ideal – best of the best – conditions to answer this question. What do I choose? And then, how do I want to realize this choice?
I am drifting. Again I am drifting because first, I was supposed to understand “drifting.”
No, it is better without planning. It is better if it will be based on free association until the subject is exhausted.
Bielefeld, West Germany. Europe. Earth. Solar System. The Galaxy. The Universe. That’s me in this perspective. The New Age is coming. Do I need a greater scale of things? No, this is enough. So, here I am, on the planet Earth, in the Solar System. I know nothing of other living beings in the Universe. The purpose of my existence: unknown. So, a hypothesis is necessary. A working hypothesis to be falsified or confirmed. A kind of a compass. An axiom, a postulate to be verified by developing a system based on this postulate and by checking if it is useful, if it leads somewhere and does not drift in a circle.
And it seems that the only reasonable hypothesis is one that comes from the unknown system taught by Gurdjieff. This system tells us that the world has a certain purpose. It tells us that not everything works well. It tells us that there are certain bugs in the construction. It is quite possible that using the meta-language, one can prove that any program on that scale must have bugs. So, the Universe is a program, a program that has bugs, but which has the in-built capacity for self-improving.
There are, consequently, certain units that are brought to existence with this specific purpose: to self-evolve to a degree high enough to be able to discover the methods of debugging. These repairs can only be done on a local scale, therefore local units are created. Of course, there are ways to act non-locally, but for that, one has to have some knowledge of the operating system. Thus, this is the allegory.
I am such a unit. I am alive, and I am endowed with some inputs and outputs and peripherals; with some modems for communication. The computer allegory. So, potentially, I have everything necessary for self-development. Of course, during my life certain things went wrong, therefore certain connections are wrong, certain others are even deadly wrong. But these defects can and must be circumvented by closing certain channels and by opening of others. Anyway, I can only do what I can do – no more.
This is a general perspective. From this general perspective, my aim is to save the Universe. Or, rather: to help save the Universe. And this I have to do, whatever the future might be. Independently of the fact that there may be an immortal soul that can be developed by conscious effort and intellectual suffering, I have no other choice but to help to debug the Universe.
“In the beginning was the Word … ” Only today do I understand this message. This means we are entering into an important era. In a sense into a final era: when to decide to be of or not of the Universe. This is the general perspective.
Now my role in this opus: I am a worker; I have a mission that is to be fulfilled. I have been sent here; sent into this time, this place, in this and not in some other form. The first thing to do is to find and read the designated task. But there is more. There are, namely, information channels with which I can communicate with those that sent me here and that are controlling the mission. Because the higher intelligence must have some control, but it cannot do the work which only I can do. So, there are certain information channels.
Of course, I am not able to make free use of them. I cannot use them until there is a guarantee that using of these channels will not bring harm.
Self organizing, Self evolving Units, some of these are
Debugging Local Units on a
Mission. There is a
Higher Intelligence and
Of course, all this process is based on the law of big numbers. That is: not everything can be programmed. Statistical fluctuations must be allowed. Otherwise nothing will evolve by itself. Otherwise there will be no self-evolution!
It follows thus that probabilistics, that stochastics, that elements of uncertainty, elements of choice, are at the base of the construction of the Universe. This is interesting and I want to work on this. This is very important.
I want to return to this point later on. But now, I want to proceed further: What is my aim, what is my goal, what is my task? What kind of work am I to perform? What kind of work do I want to perform?
The Universe may be a deterministic automaton, nevertheless, with such a complex action that there is no other method of predicting than running the Universe to see what will happen. In this sense, therefore, we must be satisfied with a statistical description when we want to foresee the future. Let us say that this is a rough picture. But then, where is free will? The ability to choose? For precognition? Something is therefore lacking in this picture.
Workings of the Universe.
The problem of determinism and indeterminism. The problem of free will and the problem of chance. All this relates to the problem of time and to the problem of other dimensions. Therefore I must not discuss these things on too simple a level. So, we have the following circle of problems:
Time – Causality – Determinism – Chance – Phase – Other Dimensions – Quantum and Classical – Complementarity – Information – Organization.
What is important here is that these are general laws – these are objective. There are statistical laws that are valid on average, and there are laws that concern each individual case. But these laws leave a certain rather big freedom. Within this freedom there is what is and within this freedom we are given [a] free hand. Thus, not everything is determined and predictions for the future have the form: if this, then this; if not, then that.
I am living in the world based on technology. I am using this technology. We have computers. We know something about computer programs. Only now we understand what it means, “In the beginning was the Word.” Therefore we should not alienate ourselves from this technology. Our cognizance goes through technology – which does not exclude the fact that for some so-called “chosen” people, there are other possibilities of gaining knowledge. These are possibilities which are not, however, saving all of humanity.
Thus, I am aware of the fact that I am not developing for myself. I am not working for salvation or immortality. I am sent here with a mission and my task is to add to the saving of the Universe. I can do it by helping humanity. But in order to do it, I need knowledge, I need to be able to discern. So, the goal appears:
To discover the workings of the Universe, to learn about human beings, about myself.
To learn to help the Universe means to help the Creator. To be of some help to the Creator of everything. Everything-that-is is a great thing. So, this is my ultimate goal. The goal from which all other goals stem.
Now, come back to the beginning. If this is my goal, then there should be no time for drifting, no place for pleasures. Somebody told me that I need to rest, but I do not need to rest when there is work to be done. At each moment I can choose. At these moments I have to be careful not to let things just go their way.
So, the ultimate goal is clear. Now must come realization. It is clear, psychologically, that the goal is difficult. And there are all kinds of obstacles, there are phantoms that can delude … all of mythology is full of temptation stories!
The goal is high and right and good, but for some reason, it cannot be obtained by just anybody who can see it. There is some sort of filter in action, there is a selection criteria. The goal can be reached only by some chosen ones, some who can pass a test, who can oppose temptations, who can prove to have enough strength, who can show that the Gods have them under their care. Otherwise, I will perish. (Arkadiusz Jadczyk, Research Journals, 1988)
I have tried to reproduce the actual setup of this journal entry above because it is important. What this tells us is that, as early as 1988, Ark was “in contact” with the Cassiopaeans. While I was living in the woods, meditating in my garden and wrestling with God about my own purpose, or trying to read impossible physics texts, he was already formulating ideas that have a powerful bearing on the present subject; debugging the Universe; local “debugging units” that produce nonlinear changes. And it is in these present pages that the dynamics of debugging are being presented. For every mind that is unplugged and debugged, the potential effects on the Universe are literally staggering.
Now, notice very carefully the following remark: predictions for the future have the form: if this, then this; if not, then that. If the situation, as it is, is not known, no one will take any action and the predictions for the future will be set. However, if there is a change, perhaps even so small a change as just what we are doing here in sharing this information, it can change everything in a nonlinear way. And it is this that the Cassiopaeans have endeavored to teach us. Yes, they will answer our questions objectively and clinically as to the state of the Universe in which we live at the moment the question is asked. And then they will tell us that we have free will if we have knowledge. And then, when we ask them what we ought to do, if anything, they say, “You will do what you will do.”
You will do what you will do.
Physicist Julian Barbour writes in The End of Time:
Anyone committed to science has difficulty with free will. In The Selfish Gene, (2nd edition, pp. 270–71), Dawkins asks, “What on earth do you think you are, if not a robot, albeit a very complicated one?” From personal introspection, I do not believe that my conscious self exercises free will. Certainly I ponder difficult decisions at length, but the decision itself invariably comes into consciousness from a different, unconscious realm. Brain research confirms that what we think are spontaneous decisions, acts of free will, are prepared in the unconscious mind before we become aware of them.
However, the many-instants interpretation puts an intriguingly different slant on causality, suggesting that it operates in nothing like the way we normally belief it to. In both classical physics and Everett’s original scheme, what happens now is the consequence of the past. But with many instants, each Now “competes” with all other Nows in a timeless beauty contest to win the highest probability. The ability of each Now to “resonate” with the other Nows is what counts. Its chance to exist is determined by what it is in itself. The structure of things is the determining power in a timeless world.
The same applies to us, for our conscious instants are embedded in the Nows. The probability of us experiencing ourselves doing something is just the sum of the probabilities for all the different Nows in which that experience is embedded. Everything we experience is brought into existence by being what it is. Our very nature determines whether we shall or shall not be. … We are because of what we are. Our existence is determined by the way we relate to (or resonate with) everything else that can be. … One day the theory of evolution will be subsumed in a greater scheme, just as Newtonian mechanics was subsumed in relativity without in any way ceasing to be great and valid science. … I do not think that we are robots or that anything happens by chance. That view arises because we do not have a large enough perspective on things. We are the answers to the question of what can be maximally sensitive to the totality of what is possible. (Barbour 1999, 324–325)

3 Ark’s note: Physicist Alfred Landé came with another idea: that it is the wall rather than the electron that knows whether one or two holes are open, and scatters the electrons according to this knowledge. Both interpretations are possible, the effect and the algebra of interference patterns remains the same.
4 Ark’s note: this process of diffraction pattern formation by shooting of single electrons, their path being watched or not, can be modeled by a nonlinear quantum dynamics. Simultaneous observation of several non-commessurable physical characteristics, like, for instance, position and velocity vectors, can lead to chaotic and fractal patterns.
