PROBLEMA the Film


Who are we in the 21st Century?

A cinematic interpretation of the world’s largest round table gathering, PROBLEMA is a visually imaginative, thought-provoking invitation to a world of global dilemmas. Spanning seventeen questions confronting who we are and where we’re going, the film follows the insights, perceptions, reflections and views of over 100 people from more than 50 nations sat together in one circle.

A not-for-profit production, PROBLEMA is freely available to watch and to download via their website. If you’d like to support the film, we encourage you to host a screening, to sign our guestbook or to consider making a micro-donation to help further its human connection.

My Uncle Kamal Boullata was one of the guests invited to speak.

Welcome to The Nous Age


I‘m thrilled you’ve discovered my corner of the world wide web and I hope you decide to jump into the discussions below or at least subscribe in the top right corner. I don’t care if you disagree vehemently or agree with me whole heartedly (or are somewhere in between like most of my readers) I personally invite you to become a part of our discussion.

Why This Website
This website is a sketch pad for my ongoing research, which I plan to publish as a book tentatively titled The Door to The Nous Age. It’s where I am connecting the dots between cutting edge scientific research in quantum physics and psi, and religious traditions from around the world. It’s a place for me to pose theories and hypotheses on this building alignment of science and spirit and what it means to our modern “connected” world. It’s also a place for me to field criticisms and be inspired to move my research into new directions. And along the way, you’ll get a sneak peek into what you can expect from my book.

Full Disclosure
I am neither a scientist nor a theologian and I don’t pretend to be.

What I am is a journalist with an insatiable curiosity and desire for taking things apart to understand why they work and how they work. From a journalistic point of view I am documenting new scientific discoveries and attempting to coorelate them to what religions have been saying for thousands of years. And because I like Indiana Jones so much (who doesn’t), a bit of archeology to help us better understand the world dominant Abrahamic religions and what clues to our past they’ve been hiding in plain site all this time. Is it possible that we are only re-discovering what a civilization that predates known history already knew?

Objectivity
Some would ask what business I have talking about science when I’m not a scientist; or talking about religion when I am likewise not an expert. In two words: objective journalism. I think it’s precisely that I don’t have any so called professional truths to uphold that I am able to explore ideas unencumbered by either religious, scientific or archaeological dogma.

What I Believe
We are in the midst of some kind of paradigm shift, NOT a cataclysmic shift like many doomsday-ers are predicting but simply a change in the way we see ourselves as a society, as a species, as a planet. And this change in perspective that we are moving into is what I call The Nous Age…welcome!

UFOs and the Gateway To Heaven


“…and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it…And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful [is] this place! this [is] none other but the house of God, and this [is] the gate of heaven” – Genesis 28:12; 17

Not long ago hovering over the city of New York in broad daylight, stunned pedestrians looked up in awe of strange lights. We’re not talking about “flying saucers”, these are what could be called “orbs”, mysterious balls of light. Click here to see raw video footage of the UFOs.

Similar lights have been seen around the world over the last several years, alone and sometimes in large groups numbering in the 100s. So what are they?!

In his book Dimensions: A Casebook of Alien Contact (1988) Jacques Vallee says:

I believe that the UFO phenomenon is one of the ways through which an alien form of intelligence of incredible complexity, is communicating with us symbolically. There is no indication that it is extraterrestrial…it [comes from] other dimensions beyond spacetime; from a multiverse which is all around us.

Dimensional Vortex
In 2006 Jaime Maussan, a UFOlogist extraordinaire, presented astonishing video of several such orbs, the exception being, unlike the New York City footage, they were captured using a high quality security camera capable of zooming in to incredible detail. (You can watch the entire presentation here: http://vimeo.com/1305669). Below is a clip (animated .gif) of one of those orbs shown in the presentation, you can see it at 28 minutes into the video.

At this extreme high magnification you can make out what seems to be some sort of tunnel. Jaime came to the conclusion that what we are seeing is a ‘dimensional vortex’.

Jaime Maussan's Dimensional Vortex

Were does it go…and how did it get here? Are very good questions that have no good answers so far. Though there may be some clues in the historical record.

2012 Mayan Prophecy
In Mayan belief a ‘serpent rope’ will emerge from the center of the galaxy in 2012, with an enlightened being named Nine Winds or Quetzalcoatl riding on it and a blessed substance or sap the Mayans call ‘itz’ spewing from it.

Judeo-Christian Myth
According to the transfiguration of Christ myth there was a similar entrance he used to travel to heaven after his crucifixion. Perhaps he had some way of conjuring up an opening in space/time to get to-and-from heaven.

A Dimensional Vortex or gateway to heaven?

Do a Google search for ‘Transfiguration Icon’ and  notice the similarities in the design or layout of the icon: Jesus in front of some sort of open vortex, with Moses on one side and Elijah on the other.

And then of course there’s the old testament story of Jacob’s Ladder.

What is Myth, What is Truth?
I believe that myths are truths embellished over time. Could it be that the biblical stories of Jacobs Ladder and the Mayan ‘Serpent Rope’ be one in the same? Has truth been embedded in the Bible and other ancient documents to prepare us for this coming age? Could it be true that these lights in the sky are just the tip of some kind of a tunnel or stargate from another dimension? Or a rapturess stairway to heaven?

Investigative mythologist and stargate researcher William Henry goes as far as to question if perhaps Christ and Quetzalcoatl are one in the same on his Soul Rising DVD…

The Truth
The truth is that we don’t yet know what these mysterious lights are and I’m not pretending to have the answers either…but if they are indeed some sort of a naturally occurring porthole to another dimension or a “stargate”…wow, that would certainly call for a change of perception or paradigm shift on our part, wouldn’t it!

Welcome to The Nous Age, indeed!

The Symphony of the Cosmos


Deepak Chopra another of my gifted teachers recently at a conference put it plainly:

“When you were first conceived, you were just a double strand of DNA, in a fertilized ovum.

It divided fifty times.

In only fifty replications, you had a hundred trillion cells! It is more than all the stars in the Milky Way galaxy.

And each cell is estimated to do about six trillion things per second, and every cell instantly knows what every other cell is doing.

How does a human body think thoughts, play a piano, kill germs, remove toxins, and make a baby all at the same time? And whilst it’s doing that, it tracks the movement of stars and planets. Because your biological rhythms, are actually the symphony of the cosmos.

There’s an inner intelligence in your body, and that inner intelligence is consciousness. It’s the ultimate in supreme genius, which mirrors the wisdom of the universe.”

Conclusion
I believe that it’s when we as individuals and collectively/culturally accept this simple truth (that we a part of the universe and not apart from the universe) that we will step into The Nous Age. And it’s not that big of a step…

INTERVIEW: Sky Sheridan of Called2Create


Sky Sheridan is the Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer of Called2Create, a movement that intends to raise the conscious awareness of our freedom and power to create a world that puts people and the planet first so that we can all profit.

I spoke with him via Skype this past Wednesday about his life, his new book The Seven Shifts and the message he’s been called to share with the world.

Seeing that my first encounter with Sky and the Called2Create message was when I stumbled upon his award winning YouTube video, that’s where I started the interview…

The Interview:
(to hear Sky’s response to my question click on the ‘play’ icon below each question.)

Q1. How did the video A Creation Nation come about?

Q2. What is the mission of Called2Create?

Q3. This former model has just released his first book The Seven Shifts, out now for the Kindle and will be available in print form at the end of December. It’s both his personal memoir and a guide to achieving enlightenment. I asked Sky how he went from being a model to a spiritual guide, what some would call, “a pretty big leap”…

Q4. A lot of my own Nous Age research revolves around scientific discoveries, the Noetic sciences and specifically quantum physics. I asked Sky how important the discoveries of quantum physics are to his message?

Q5. In his book The Seven Shifts he talks about how a true consciousness shift can only take place when we shift from “living in fear to living love”…I asked him to explain…

Q6. How does the fear of death hold us back from discovering who we really are?

Q7. From the outside it may look like he’s lived a charmed life but the truth of his early life simply put, is tragic. Is it possible for somebody who’s lived a sheltered life to feel the need to become more spiritual?

Q8. If he could distill his message down to one sentence, what would it be?

War Is Over, John Lennon’s Christmas Wish for Us


With the Orwelian chant of “War is Peace” alive and well, blaring at us through the news media and the so-called world leadership, we’ve arrived at the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s assassination and I wonder if his message died with him that day on the cold concrete of 72nd avenue in New York City.

“War Is Over” is not as much an announcement as it is a declaration that war is no longer necessary, that it’s gone out of vogue. However, with major wars in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Palestine, and low level conflicts in places like Somalia, India, and Sudan not everybody seems to have received the message. Why?

Cain Is Still Killing Abel
Since the beginning of time itself Man has been engaged in conflict, killing his brother for land and for natural resources.  Billions of people have been killed, empires collapsed, cities burnt and destroyed, civilizations lost and land torched and contaminated. Despite that the so-called civilized modern Man of today is still not convinced that wars do not solve conflicts but exacerbate them.

Wars are still being waged, Cain keeps killing Abel, despite the wide spread anti-war movements and many vocal peace activists. How is it possible that the few are controlling the many? And why have we given up on what we know to be true…that War Is Over?

The New World Order
We have evolved as human beings. It’s time for us to recognize that, to see our new selves by expressing our desire for oneness through co-operation on the local level and by electing people to power who believe what we believe…not the business as usual politicians who’s mantra is “War Is Peace”. We control the new world order, not them.

Don’t let them marginalize you for thinking this way either. It’s not pie-in-the-sky. This is our new reality, our new age…our “Nous” Age. It’s here if you want it.

Where Is This Going?


We are evolving. We may not see it in the short term but we are continuously moving forward.

Contrary to popular thought, our evolution is not the evolution of the one, it is the evolution of the collective. Science has shown us that before there were multicellular organisms on this planet there were only single cells. For millions and millions of years there were just single cells living out their single cell ‘lives’. Sadly, awareness for these single little cells was what came in contact with the surface of their membrane. A great evolutionary step came when the cells recognized that they could increase there survival rate by gaining more awareness.

Increasing Awareness
There are 2 ways for a cell to gain more membrane (awareness), (1) grow bigger, which has it limitations because a cell can only get so big, or (2) cells could come together and share membrane.

How Your Body Works
In reality, your body is a busy collection of amoebas working together, sharing jobs and information all to ensure your survival. Now, think of yourself as a cell in a greater collective brought together to share awareness. Every person on this planet is a cell in this collective, contributing their own membrane creating a synergy of awareness. All of this to create one living organism that we could call the human race. When we can come together to recognize what’s happening and begin to work in a coherent fashion we will have stepped up to the next level of evolution.

Where Are We Going?
Another of my great teachers, Bruce Lipton talks about this. He says that the cell of the human is essentially the same as the cell of the amoeba…the human form is a reiteration of the single cell and as such is a fractal. When our collective is complete, the Earth as an organism will likewise have completed it’s evolution. The Earth is a living, breathing, pulsing entity. Just like when the cell was complete, it connected with other cells, now that the human is complete it is hooking up with other humans (think of technologies like the internet). In the future as the Earth is complete as a living organism, will it likewise hook up with other organisms of the same nature? Will Earth become a part of a galactic community? Only time will tell.

We are indeed living in interesting times, sitting on the verge of going from the ‘me’ to the ‘we’ way of thinking and being. Welcome to The ‘Nous’ Age!

Exploration: Past Life Regression


Dolores Cannon is a past-life regressionist and hypnotherapist who specializes in the recovery and cataloging of what can be called “lost knowledge”. Some of her discoveries have been controversial (Conversations with Nostradamus, Keepers of the Garden) to say the least, others simply fascinating. Her roots in hypnosis go back to the 1960s. She has been specializing in past-life therapy since 1979.

As you may already know I have been reading some of her work for quite some time now (Convoluted Universe 1, Convoluted Universe 2 and now her latest book Convoluted Universe 3) and referencing some of her amazing lost knowledge discoveries here.

Visiting Montreal
In July 2008 it was my distinct honour to interview her while she was here in Montréal for a conference and to teach her hypnotherapy technique to a class full of eager student’s. Despite being here in Montréal her schedule only permitted a telephone interview but that didn’t deter us one bit from quickly getting into concepts of consciousness, 2012 prophecy and The New Earth.

The following are the ten questions I posed to her. To hear Dolores’ response to my question click on the ‘play’ icon below each question. (ex. )

The Interview

Q1. Tell me about your regression technique, how did you develop it?

Q2. What makes your technique special?

Q3.What was your original reaction when you realized what you had stumbled on?

Q4. How do you deal with skeptics?

Q5. Could you elaborate a little on this idea of “The New Earth”?

Q6. Will people notice any changes?

Q7. I’m reading a book by physics professor Amit Goswami [1][2][3] called “The Self Aware Universe” (1995) where he makes a case for the idea that in the evolutionary process consciousness came before matter…that the only “reality” is consciousness…and that matter is a by-product of consciousness itself rather than the other way around. Is this idea consistent with your research”? In Convoluted Universe 2 one of your subjects said that the afterlife experience is more real than what we (in this life) perceive as reality…

Q8. …when I clarified Amit Goswami’s thesis, by saying that he is scientifically proving what she’s been saying she reacted like this…

Q9. Based on your research what would you say is God?

Q10. Is God consciousness?

Conclusion
I believe that our modern world is based on fundamentally flawed conceptions of time and mind and that on this shaky foundation we have built a civilization which as it grows is becoming increasingly shaky (see, stock market and political news). Dolores Cannon’s work is helping to expose the need to rethink all of our grand assumptions and to establish a new paradigm.

Destination 2012


The closer we get to that date the more the event becomes clearer in my mind, December 21, 2012 the supposed end date of the Mayan calendar. Hollywood has turned it into the literal catastrophic end of the world, throwing away it’s true meaning as the end of an age…and the start of a new one.

Is It The Rapture?
I have spent much time deprogramming my family and friends from this mis-conception about the end of the Mayan calendar, driven largely in the U.S. by the extremist Christian idea of “The Rapture“. These Christians who have infected Western media (and collective mind) with their warped idea of Christianity have turned an entire generation into cowering ignoramuses.

I have studied the work of John Major Jenkins, José Argüelles, Gregg Braden, Peter Russell and many others with insightful opinions and have come to the conclusion that:

(1) whatever is going to happen on that date has already begun, that it will be the peak of the event…and that

(2) if something is going to happen it will be a good thing and not what Hollywood or the Christian right are championing.

I have also discovered that we have the choice to believe or not.

My Hope
My hope is that in this new age, we as a species will come to accept our connection to each other and everything around us. That nature and the world is not something outside of us. That we are not apart from nature, but instead, that we are a part of nature and as such have a responsibility to take care of each other and our world. If we can agree that we are all made of the same God stuff, doesn’t that make it easier to see how we are all connected? Then how is it that we lost this sense of connectedness? Materialism, commercialism perhaps…?

The Nous Age
There is no way to stop our date with destiny…so sit back and enjoy the ride. The Nous Age is Here…if you want it!
