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.

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)

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…

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.

What’s Wrong With WordPress?


FIRST OFF let me clarify, it’s not just what’s wrong with WordPress but all blogs and forums…in fact any website whose raison d’être is to be a hub of information sharing and dialogue.

I’m a broadcaster by trade, I’ve been communicating ideas for over 20 years. Likewise, I’m not new at this, I’ve been blogging on different subjects for years, this blog The Nous Age (pronounced ‘New’ Age), is my latest effort and the culmination of much research and thought.

The Beginning
When I discovered blogging in 2004 I was drawn to it’s touted ability to bring people together for dialogue about a given subject and at first it seemed so. But the more I look at it today I realize that it has done the opposite, it has polarized people about ideas. Where I have gone looking for open dialogue I have been threatened with deletion.

Rather than helping people become more informed about topics that they never would have been exposed to had blogging not existed, it has simply brought together people of like minds and solidified their ideas no matter how arcane they seem.

What I’ve Learned From Blogging
My subject is spirituality. I went from being a devout “church every Sunday” Christian to a free thinking spiritualist that has now discovered deeper meaning through profound dialogue with various people from around the globe that I encountered over the years. I have come to conclusions about religion and spirit which I am now sharing through this blog. (The New Age, Destination 2012, The Universe Is Conscious)

Not to say my philosophy is set-in-stone, it’s not. I am open to other ideas which is part of what I’m calling The Nous Age Principle. A year from now perhaps I won’t agree with 5% of what I believe today and that’s ok, because that’s what open and honest dialogue does, right?

The Challenge
Today I give you a challenge, visit another blog and leave a comment for someone who you don’t agree with. I don’t mean to instigate a literary food fight…I mean to  instigate a dialogue, even if the outcome is only to agree that you disagree. You never know how many seeds you’ll plant through that one gesture. Get out of your comfort zone…

This is The 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!
