Reality and the Extended Mind


JOURNALIST AND AUTHOR Adrian Nelson has released the first installment of his documentary, Reality and the Extended Mind. It covers the GCP (Global Consciousness Project) in some detail, along with interview segments with Dean Radin of IONS, Brenda Dunne and Bob Jahn of the PEAR lab, and Herb Mertz and Adam Curry of Psyleron, Inc.

The World and indeed the Universe is an awe inspiring place, we can only TRY to understand it better.

Jesus’ Baptism and 2012


The Milky Way

If you’re lucky enough to live in an area that doesn’t suffer the tragedy of light pollution, you may have become blasé to what I call “the greatest show on Earth”, namely the night sky.

The most profound part of the night sky for me is the thick band of light that goes from horizon to horizon and seems to wrap the Earth in a ribbon of light. In reality it is the edge-on view of our Galaxy, The Milky Way.

From Khemit to Today
From the point of view of ancient Egypt (or as they themselves referred to it, Khemit) the Milky Way seemed like an extension of the life giving Nile River, which seemed to have it’s origin in the Southern horizon (lower Africa) and snaked it’s way North into the Mediterranean Sea. It could be interpreted by them that the Nile was an extension of the heavenly Milky Way “river”.

As I continue the research for my book I have come to believe that a lot of what we know as Abrahamic religious traditions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) have their foundation in the ancient religion of the Khemetians of North Africa and that the traditions of the Khemitians are alive and well in one form or another disguised as Judaeo-Christian stories. One case in point:  the Baptism of The Son of God in the river Jordan.

The Baptism of The Son of God

The Baptism of The Son of God

Imagine that the river Jordan is a metaphor for the Nile/Milky Way and that the Son of God (Jesus) is the Sun. I believe that the so called ‘baptism’ is actually a representation of the conjunction between the rising Sun and the Milky Way, but not just any conjunction, a conjunction between the Sun and the center of our galaxy, and what is known as The Dark Rift.

Conjuntion-juntion, What’s Your Function?
What’s so special about this conjunction? Well it does happen every year on the same date but the next conjunction will have the Sunrise directly in the center of the Dark Rift, the first time in nearly 10,500 years. That date? December 21, 2012…yes, the same date as the misinterpreted end of the world date of the Mayan calendar. I don’t believe that it will be the end of the world, I do believe that it will be the start of some sort of “age of enlightenment”.

Let’s go back to the Baptism of Jesus for a minute and examine the iconography of the event that has been passed down through the ages:

Look at these depictions (below) of the event and notice the always present 3 pronged beam of light placed over Jesus’ head in each of them and/or the white dove which is seen as a symbol of love, peace or as a “messenger”.

   

Could the encoded message in these icons be that on the day of the “baptism” (ie. conjunction) we could expect some sort of divine connection between us and the Universe to happen? It definitely would change the way we look at Jesus, The Bible and certainly open religions to new interpretations.

New Evidence
I also have uncovered evidence that this same message has been hidden in plain sight in non-religious form similar to the evidence I presented in my Is This Liberty post. But this evidence will have to wait for my book to be completed.

I eagerly look forward to your comment, please enter it below.

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!

José Argüelles


The well-known esoteric, visionary, artist and author José Argüelles has died at the age of 72 after a brief illness. Argüelles is considered the pioneer of the modern phenomenon of 2012, predicting a great change in conscious awareness after December 21, 2012.

José Argüelles is known for his role in organizing the Harmonic Convergence event of 1987, and his book The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology, published the same year as well as the book Time and The Technosphere published in 2002. He also was one of the originators of the Earth Day concept, Argüelles founded the first Whole Earth Festival in 1970, at Davis, California.

To say that his work was an influence on my Nous Age Principle would be an understatement. His spirit will continue to work through my writing…

Rest for now José, but there is work to do from where you are now. Peace brother.

Is This Liberty?


The best place to hide something is in plain sight…

THE STATUE OF LIBERTY’s full name is “Liberty Enlightening the World”. It was given to the United States by France to celebrate their alliance during the Revolutionary War. The statue was built in Paris and then shipped to the U.S. in 1885.

Various parts of the statue were on display throughout Paris as they were completed. For example Liberty’s head was exhibited in the gardens at the Tracadéro, and her torch was on display as well, as you can observe in the images below.

She has stood in all her splendour outside New York City, just south of Ellis Island, as the symbol of freedom for generations of Americans ever since…but is she really who she says she is?

The Great Imposter
Now, look at this picture:

What or who do you see?

Well, it’s not what you think…say hello to Sol Invictus “the contriver of light”…or the giver of enlightenment. He was the official sun god of the later Roman empire.

The Sun of God
Sol Invictus literally translates as “The Invincible Sun”. A case can easily be mounted to show the entire story of Jesus, the Son of God, is a plagerised version of the story of this Sun God.

To take it a bit further, the grafting of Sol Invictus feast days to the tale of a boy born of a virgin in a manger in Bethlehem and visited by 3 kings are all part of a conspiracy to personify celestial events, but for what reason? These stories can be traced even further back than the golden age of Rome to 3000 B.C. to ancient Egypt’s story of Horus.

I have reason to believe that the story of Horus may have been borrowed from an advanced civilization that pre-dates known history…but that will have to wait for another post.

Toward the Rising Sun
Maybe that The Statue of Liberty faces toward the Winter time sunrise in New York (and toward Sunset Park in Brooklyn) is a clue meant for us to uncover her true identity?

Most people mistakenly believe that she faces South toward ships arriving into New York City’s Upper Bay.

The Truth
Should we add Liberty to the long list of solar gods? Or is she indeed the Sol Invictus for the New Rome? Perhaps this is all just a case of mistaken identity…?

Another interesting question would be what do the 7 points on her crown represent. Is it the light of liberty on the 7 seas and 7 continents as we’ve been told …or perhaps do they represent the 7 power centers (chakra) of the human body…and if so how does that relate to the power of the Sun?

Nobody knows the truth of The Statue of Liberty for sure but it certainly begs many questions…

Laws of Physics May Change?


New evidence supports the idea that we live in an area of the universe that is “just right” for our existence. The controversial finding comes from an observation that one of the constants of nature appears to be different in different parts of the cosmos.

If correct, this result stands against Einstein’s equivalence principle, which states that the laws of physics are the same everywhere. “This finding was a real surprise to everyone,” says John Webb of the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Webb is lead author on the new paper, which has been submitted to Physical Review Letters.

Even more surprising is the fact that… (read more)

I Wish I Could Talk In Technicolor


I’M READING Daniel Pinchbeck‘s ‘Breaking Open the Head‘ (Broadway Books, 2002) and am starting to believe that psychedelic drugs are literally a key to other dimensions. 11 dimensions to be exact, which scientists like Michio Kaku are endorsing.

Psychedelics seem to let us see things that our ‘normal’ closed mind won’t let us. Different drugs open different dimensions.

Here’s a video going viral right now from a time when LSD was not illegal.

By no means am I endorsing the use of illegal hallucinogenic drugs but the idea is certainly fascinating, isn’t it?
