The Mystery of Consciousness

Perhaps the greatest mystery of human experience is consciousness itself. Today, the fields of neuroscience and neurotechnology provide astounding insights into the electrical and chemical processes of the brain. Consequently, institutional science proposes with confidence that the brain alone creates conscious experience. Yet despite all that science has learned, the very source and essence of consciousness remains a puzzle. Thunderbolts colleague Dr. Michael Clarage shares with us his thoughts on the enduring mysteries of consciousness.

It depends on your world view if things makes sense

The cosmological standard for a Christian is Genesis 1:1, that in the beginning God created heavens and earth. By acknowledging this as one’s own personal world view, the cosmology is based on spirit, mind, and everything else derives from consciousness. The origin is immaterial and matter is a construct of the mind, like a idea or a thought. So this is called the idealistic world view.

Materialism instead claims that matter is “real” in that sense, that it could exist even without a intelligent being. This means that a particle has a kind of independence on it’s own, able to exist without a consciousness which keeps it “alive“. This inherent tendency of materialism for independence and isolation is reflected by whom has this world view. All theories of materialism denies the existence of a creator and therefore scientific facts which undoubtedly proves a design in nature are just ignored. Instead the gaps which forms inside their imperfect world view are filled with “constants“, dogmas, unproved hypothesis (like big bang, dark matter and dark energy, black holes, tachyons, macroscopic evolution … ) and so on.

There are a variety of world views which seems to be in harmony with Christian faith, but they reveal to be materialistic in their core. This leads always to dualism, which is a contradiction. For example pantheism, it claims that some kind of spirit resides in each stone or plant or element, is in real a materialistic world view. It has as it’s base matter as independent entity and additionally a spirit component. Between matter and spirit is a strict distinction and this is dualism.

Idealistic monism on the other part is non-dualistic. It says that “mind is the base of everything“, which is the only scientific theory in harmony with Genesis 1:1. Think about it: Why should God create a physical universe which is absolutely independent from a conscious observer? Quantum mechanics proves that matter is affected by an observer. This does not happen just because particles communicate with each other by other obscure particles and so they adjust their behavior to the expectations of the observer. The materialistic approach only creates the necessity to explain everything with more and more layers of complicated hypothesis.

By changing one’s own world view to the idealistic one, things makes finally more sense. It then makes sense that we should be aware of our thoughts, because they affect other beings, even physical reality. For example after Adam sinned in the garden of Eden, the earth produced thorns and thistles. Many people have witnessed what a “green thumb” means, a remarkable influence of our own attitudes toward plants, which let them grow faster and even heal them. Materialists have the tendency to use swearwords when confronted with this kind of facts. Their arrogance is reflected in their attitude, in their facial expression and in their aggressiveness how they deny certain undeniable aspects of reality.

If the mind is the base of everything, then we are all interconnected, in contrast to materialism which promotes isolation of systems. Certain phenomenas, which are regarded as impossible by materialism, makes only sense with consciousness as the co-creator of reality. For example nonlocality is a anomaly for materialists. For the idealistic world view nonlocality is the norm and it makes more sense that the mind generates space for communication purposes. If scientists don’t make any progress in cosmology, then it depends on their world view. The search for the ultimate “god particle” wasted billions, which made no sense in a world where people dies of malnutrition. Such a immoral misbehavior is only possible with a materialistic world view promoting isolation and independence. The biggest discoveries was made in the mind of a scientist, in his kitchen or in his backyard, but not in a underground facility protected by armed security agents and with a budget of billion of dollars.

Nature may be very complex, but not complicated. It is not made of different layers of lies. But if scientists continue to promote the materialistic world view, they will never make a real sense of the wonders of nature.

Science is a dogmatic system

In this video, British biologist Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world’s most innovative scientists, describes how science is being constricted by unexamined assumptions that have hardened into dogmas. These dogmas not only put arbitrary limits on the depth and scope of science, but may well be dangerous for the future of humanity.

According to these dogmas, all of reality is material or physical; the world is an inanimate machine; nature is purposeless; free will is an illusion; notions of higher orders of consciousness and absolute (“God”) awareness exist only as ideas in human minds, which are themselves nothing but electrochemical processes imprisoned within our skulls.

So Dr. Sheldrake asks: should science be an ideology or belief system, or should it reclaim its birthright as an unbiased, open-ended method of inquiry? In his latest book, SCIENCE SET FREE, he argues that the materialist ideology is moribund; under its sway, increasingly expensive research is reaping diminishing returns while societies around the world are paying the price. In the skeptical spirit of true science, SCIENCE SET FREE turns ten fundamental dogmas of materialist science into exciting questions, and shows how all of them open up startling new possibilities for discovery. This book may well challenge your view of what is real and what is possible.

The Biggest Error Ever Made in the Name of Science

Mistaking the _image_ of a process for the _cause_ of the process is the biggest error ever made in the name of science. This video shows how this error has gripped Western thinking when it comes to the relationship between mind and brain. It also shows how reality is much simpler than the contrived worldview derived from the error. The video is an excerpt from Bernardo’s Science and Non-Duality (SAND) Europe 2013 presentation.

Morphic resonance fields infuriate materialists

The idea of morphic resonance infuriates materialists — and nearly all modern-day scientists are materialists — because the presence of a non-physical field of information naturally leads to the most dangerous idea of all to materialist science: the idea of consciousness.

This idea that your body as a whole, as well as each cell in your body, can tap into a field of information which encodes the “memory” of what a human form is supposed to be threatens the very pillars of materialistic science, upon which nearly the entire pharmaceutical industry is based, by the way. This is why materialist scientists are desperately attempting to defend the human genome as the single source of all the information needed to develop a human body, even though the human genome clearly doesn’t have the storage capacity to represent an entire body (not to mention inherited physiological functions and behavioral inheritance).

The best place to read and learn about morphic resonance is at Rupert Sheldrake’s website:
http://www.sheldrake.org/Articles&Papers/pap…

I also recommend his amazingly insightful book, A New Science of Life.

Keep in mind that if you read about Rupert Sheldrake from any materialistic science website — including Scientific American which is 100% pro-Monsanto, pro-GMO and anti GMO labeling, by the way — you are going to read vicious attacks against Sheldrake from desperate materialists who brand morphic resonance as “magical thinking.”

This is especially comic, given that these same materialists believe the entire universe in which we live spontaneously appeared from nowhere without cause or reason through a process they call the “Big Bang.” Somehow, the big bang isn’t magical thinking to the materialists, but the idea of a non-physical field of inheritance is magical thinking. It’s almost like these people have never heard of gravity: yet another invisible field that affects all living things.

Can Science and Religion be Integrated?

Can science and religion be integrated? What comes to mind immediately is that religions themselves cannot agree with one another whereas science is basically monolithic. How can there even be trade between the two, let alone integration?

Currently, the overall perception of science is that it is materialist. The belief is that science cannot be done without the dogma of material monism: all things of our experience have a material origin.

Cosmos

On the other hand, there is common ground for all religions in three respects:
1) all religions agree that there is God …
2) All religions also posit the existence of non-material “subtle” bodies connected with our internal experiences–feeling, meaning, and values–in addition to the material body.
3) All religions posit the importance of certain values as the goal of life; values such as, love, truth, beauty, justice, good.

The Dogma of Material Monism
Currently, the overall perception of science is that it is materialist. The belief is that science cannot be done without the dogma of material monism: all things of our experience have a material origin.

It is only logical that the practitioners of materialist science should have something to object and negate about the three religious contentions about reality enunciated above.

Materialists also posit that God, consciousness, mind, feelings, values, all things internal besides what we experience externally, matter, are explainable in material terms.

In quantum physics, objects are not determined things of Newtonian vintage. Instead, they are waves of possibility. When we observe, these waves “collapse” into actual events in our experience. Instead of spread-out waves what we observe is a localized particle. This is the famous observer effect.

The resolution of the paradox is to turn the materialist view of consciousness upside down. Let consciousness be the base of the world and let matter consist of waves of possibilities of consciousness. Consciousness chooses from the possibility waves of matter within it to collapse the actual events that we observe.

For the materialist model of individual consciousness associated with each brain, the solution is called solipsism. Only your consciousness is real; everybody else is a fragment of your imagination.

The good news is that not one, but three separate experiments are now showing that quantum consciousness, the author of downward causation is nonlocal, is unitive, is God.

Atomic Age and the Sexual Revolution
1950s started the Atomic Age, using the nuclear power for killing humans, producing fear and electric energy. 1960s heralded a new culture of “free love”, the so called Sexual Revolution. Both has one think in common: separation!

A feeling of nuclear optimism emerged in the 1950s in which it was believed that all power generators in the future would be atomic in nature. But what is left of this optimism today?

Materialism has gradually hardened into a kind of anti-Christian faith

Rupert Sheldrake, who has long called for this development, spells out this need forcibly in his new book. He shows how materialism has gradually hardened into a kind of anti-Christian faith, an ideology rather than a scientific principle, claiming authority to dictate theories and to veto inquiries on topics that don’t suit it, such as unorthodox medicine, let alone religion. He shows how completely alien this static materialism is to modern physics, where matter is dynamic. And, to mark the strange dilemmas that this perverse fashion poses for us, he ends each chapter with some very intriguing “Questions for Materialists“, questions such as “Have you been programmed to believe in materialism?“, “If there are no purposes in nature, how can you have purposes yourself?“, “How do you explain the placebo response?” and so on.

In short, he shows just how unworkable the assumptions behind today’s fashionable habits have become. The “science delusion” of his title is the current popular confidence in certain fixed assumptions – the exaltation of today’s science, not as the busy, constantly changing workshop that it actually is but as a final, infallible oracle preaching a crude kind of materialism.

Rupert Sheldrake’s Alternative Science

Richard Dawkins will barely give him the time of day and many other scientists hint darkly that he has gone mad. Since 1981, when a leader in the journal Nature accused him of “pseudoscience” and “finding a place for magic within scientific discussion”, Rupert Sheldrake has been outlawed by the science establishment.

But, before he went rogue, he was accepted as a very distinguished biochemist indeed so he cannot easily be dismissed as an ill-informed fantasist. The origin of his heresy lay in his conviction that biochemistry alone could not solve the problem of how organisms assumed their final form, the process of morphogenesis. He alighted on the idea of morphic resonance. We are all surrounded by as yet undetected fields, which carry information from the past that forms new organisms. Not only that, they carry our memories and store skills. So, thanks to morphic resonance, the first person who learns to ride a bike makes it easier for the second person and so on.

This points to a perennial failing of the institution of science (and, in fairness, of most institutions) — dogmatic vanity.

In a series of books, Sheldrake has explored the evidence for and the implications of this idea. This involves ordinary phenomena such as dogs who know when their owner is coming home and the way people seem to know they are being stared at, as well as critiques of the whole edifice of materialist science.
