Steve Volk: Consciousness, Free Will and the Paranormal

Postby Ian Pegler » Sat Jul 28, 2012 7:15 am

from the blog of Steve Volk (Daily Grail)...

Consciousness, Free Will and the Paranormal
Consciousness— that inner monologue; the sensation of eating a steak or drinking red wine—is something most people have taken for granted. But the fact is, the source of consciousness is a mystery: How do the mechanistic processes of chemical secretions and neural impulses, these materialistic operations in our brains, produce something as non-physical as thought? We don’t know. And in the years since I first began work on Fringe-ology, more people seem to recognize this fact.

One of the modern theories of psychic awareness is that of the holographic universe, which states that the universe can be conceived as a hologram, a pattern of energy in which every part contains the whole from the perspective of that part. This links with quantum theory in which the world is both matter (particle) and energy(wave) depending on how you look at it (measure it), and the act of measurement requires mind or consciousness or meaning (information). Thus the world is composed of matter, energy and mind and it is the interaction of the tree that compose the universe as we know it. Change any one of these three and the universe changes. Thus we get the classic dictums of the Hermetic philosophy that humans are the microcosm of the macrocosm, and as above, so below, and the New Age saying that we create our own reality, because the reality we experience depends on how we look at it. In this reality, there is no here and there, it is all one; there is no now and then, it is all one. So we are not conceiving psychic ability as requiring a transfer of information using waves or vibrations, but rather a shift of consciousness out of this explicate world of time and space into the quantum holographic universe where it is all one now, and we are connecting with the information that is according to our needs, wishes etc.

Taken from an article by Dr. Serena Roney-Dougal on her website called "Where Science and Magic Meet ". Plenty to read in her free articles...
As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
