Consciousness: The Hubble Telescope, The Cosmic Perspective, And the Transcendent Environments, Beings, and Aliens

image

"We are but a grain of sand on an infinite beach."

This picture is a very important image. The Hubble Space Telescope is one of the farthest reaching devices that mankind has ever sent out into the cosmos. This is the furthest photograph Hubble has ever taken of the universe. All the grains of sands in the world doesn’t amount to how many stars there are. Like really think of that, all the millions and millions of grains of sands that do exist on this Earth, doesn’t even amount up to the amount of stars that exist. This image has like over ten thousand galaxies! It’s fucking mind blowing that every single light smudge and dot is a galaxy with gajillion stars in it! Every star has the possibility of planets around it with a possibility of civilization. We are tinier than a speck of dust compared to the reality of the cosmic scale! Were like microcosmic born from the cosmic sea, we are microscopic in comparision to the universe but are made from the cosmos. Specks of conscious dust.

Now thinking about the galactic scale, anything could happen. What if there are other dimensional planes that are all around us? That no matter where you are in the universe, the dimensional planes exist past time and space and in infinity, in, through and beyond our current vibrational states that our minds just can’t perceive at this moment. It wouldn’t matter where you are in the cosmic scale and the physical universe, other dimensions might exist within other portals of other vibrational frequencies where other consciousness and civilizations exists. And instead of the UFO’s and aliens out in space, the other aliens are actually within other conscious vibrational dimensional planes that aren’t physical, but are vibrational. Instead of just the way we perceive the world through the five senses: sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch… what if there are other things beyond those senses and is all around us. And a way to travel to those places aren’t in the physical, but within vibrations and attuning in into those frequencies. Instead of the physical, the other dimensions are just “is”. It is like the matrix of “all”, in, through, and beyond and surrounds us every moment in between space and time. It could be coinciding at all times.

What if spirit molecules like DMT (dimethyltryptamine) that is in our third our (pineal gland) is the portal to these other dimensions? (Read more about it here). What if there are chemical doorways that change the resonance in the way you interface with the universe through the introduction of chemicals into the mind which help you tune into the universe that doesn’t exist without it?

Like how do we know what’s beyond this? Like how sea life doesn’t know what’s beyond above the ocean… How would they ever know what’s above if their imagination and brain machines doesn’t allow them to. It’s like a singularity of thought for them, so unimaginable. But like what if that’s us too, like our space is actually just an ocean to another species and we have absolutely no idea because our perceptions in our brain doesn’t allow us to currently.

And now, not just considering existence from frequencies, but what about “The Transcension Hypothesis” by John Smart? Basically it’s about after our technological adolescent and expansionist explorations, we turn from outer space to inner space. STEM (Space, time, energy, and matter) compresses until our non biological minds live inside of virtual worlds at the nano and femto scales where we compressed compressed complexity until we created a black hole and disappeared from the visible universe where other advanced civilizations have met those dimensions through there technology advancements. Look at the technological progress as we head toward the singularity. (STEM) Space, time, energy and matter; technology takes less space, less time, less energy going through that matter as technology gets more complex. Space, time, energy and matter COMPRESSES as technology PROGRESSES! More energy per second per gram than the surface of the sun. So much density, complexity and information as we go smaller which would create a rapture through space and time! A universal computer black hole! Complexity gets smaller as the computer chips get faster. In a hundred years imagine the complexity of something smaller than an atom. 

I believe that there are other worlds and civilizations (aliens and consciousness) within other dimensions that are all around us, doesn’t matter where you are physically placed in the universe, but are vibrational in higher dimensions and we can’t perceive it because of the way our brain extrudes this reality from the external information, but there are transcendent places beyond your five senses right now.

Maybe there’s more deeper understanding of just the visible physical. It all comes down to the conclusion that the substance of the universe is not matter, and material things, but the substance of the universe is consciousness.

Cosmos

"We are the way for the cosmos to know itself." - Carl Sagan

An interpretation that the universe is not conscious and that there is no great conscious organizer out there, so the universe can’t really reflect on itself because it can’t think. But we as human beings are made from the stuff of stars, all the molecules in our body are traceable to molecular phenomena that exploded in the furnace of a star; so because we are made up of the stuff of stars and because our molecules are organized in such a way to make us “higher-thinking-cognitive- beings” and we can contemplate our place in the vast expanse of the universe, then we are a way for the cosmos to know itself.

Separation

I was thinking about this while on the plane looking outside the window with the ariel view. From above, taking in the “long view”, it looks like one super organism as one thing alive. One body, and each of us, individual cells of a whole body. But when you zoom into the cars, the organism has a ego/self and feels seperate from itself. Like if you zoom into each car, the people have their own lives and directions. But the overall direction is the same.

And when you see all the mountains and nature by itself before arriving, once you see all the buildings, roads, cars, people, its like a growth is pulsating. Like the buildings are hearts pumping out the blood cells which are cars, the roads look like veins, its just one organism pumping and flowing but if you zoom in into the people and remove the “long view”, it seems like we are all seperate because we feel so individual from our seperate egos but we could just be one thing experiencing itself subjectively. We are the imagination of ourselves. And like how our atoms are tracable from the stars, if we are made up of stars, why do we consider ourselves like individuals instead of different versions of the same stuff?

When you land and walk out of the plane, get your luggages, catch a cab, and arrive at your destination, the ariel view of one organism dissapears and you’ll see how seperate everything feels.

Pulsating Exotic Matter

image

Imagine you see matter around you but the matter is energy and its pulsating. You feel the pulsation and its like angels are singing to your soul. All your questions are being answered in an abstract way like you are dying. You become immersed in all dimensions. You open your eyes now in another world. A world where everything that is, is made out of light, but you can touch the light as if its a tangible object. You are everything. You open your eyes and your mind forgets that you have a body, or that you even existed. Its like your watching a movie, but the movie is you, but you don’t recall a you. You just are. You are everything. You see it, it sees you. You’re the mind, the eyes, the environment, you are the matrix of everything. But how can yourself be so astonishing?

You have now crystalized my imagination in your mind, this was all neurologically real. Believe that anything you can imagine, you can make that real. 

Quantumly Connected

image

Perceive your personal magnitude and microscopic insignificance. 
Join me in the rythem of the universe.
Enter the space craft of your mind.
Gather the alchemical forces and surge the cosmic frequency.
Listen to the galactic melodies and let it take you to reverie.
We close our eyes and our consciousness is sent to the edges of the universe quantumly connected from atom to galaxy feeling infinite elation. 
The boundaries of thought dissolve; unity lies within everything, a symbiosis of man and nature. 
The catalyst of imagination is revealed crystalizing into sentient reality of coinciding dimensions existing beyond matter at all times infinitely. 
Ubiquitous wonder surrounds us at every moment. 
We reach the space in between time. 
The invisible truth is finally revealed. 
We open our eyes and I realize the nexus of space and time where we are now is the most immediate sector of the universe.
We become infinite.

Open up your mind: Perceive Reality, The Brain Machine, Awareness, and Your Third Eye

image

LIFE is really a psychedelic experience if you think about it. It’s a reality generating machine. The brain is a machine that simulates the reality we live in; taking in the raw data of experience and mixes it together in a way and extrudes it into something that is comprehensible; a detector and processor of data. Like how a tv is the detector of a signal, which takes in the signal and processes in a way that is comprehensible and displays it on the screen. 

So basically, we experience reality by electrical impulses and signals that’s interpretted from our brains. What if there’s things beyond what our brain can perceive and it’s all around us but our minds just cant receive it at this point?

What if there are chemical doorways that change the resonance in the way you interface with the universe through the introduction of chemicals into the mind which help you tune into the universe that doesn’t exist without it?

Your brain natural produces DMT through your pineal gland and that gland is responsible for DMT, melatonin, and seratonin. Its the portal to the other side. It also regulates sleep patterns and influences sexual development. It connects us to dreams and spiritual planes, like an inner portal that connects to other dimensions. Its released in heavy amounts when your born and when you die. And when you sleep, little amounts are released. Its basically the spirit molecule. Its basically your third eye, it’s even physically in your brain because its placed right in the middle between your eyes and in the middle.

It’s strange that there are things like fluriode that calcify the pineal gland because it is magnetically attracted to it by collecting all the heavy metals and hindering its inner walls. Other things that are also toxic to it is dietary hormones, mercury, processed foods, caffeine, tabacco, alcohol, refined sugars like soda, cleaning chemicals, air fresheners etc. There’s a lot more things that calcify it that is under cover. It’s like the people above are trying to sedate us from seeing.

There is an advantage if you clean up your pineal gland so it can make its own DMT. Skate Fish Oil, cod fish oil, chlorella, spirulina, iodine, distilled water and more. Here are some really good additional reads about the pineal gland and dmt if you want to learn more:

Drowning in my imagination

Sometimes in the haze, my mind drowns in its thought process too creative or “out there” to describe to others. Everything in my vision turns into a design project wordlist. Over observing and analyzing. Like my consciousness chopped into thousand little cubes and each cube swapped with another cube that represents the same thing but in a different presentation or perspective. My thoughts or actions can be viewed in my mind as if I’m another person viewing myself and being able to judge it from another angle. A shape could replace a word. A sound could bring up a memory. An object could make my imagination connect to another list of words and meanings. Looking around, I can’t help but see the color palette. A song could be over analyzed into layers of sounds from the most subtle to the highest, and a melody can come alive and it could be turned into an art piece or music video in my head. It goes on and on. I want to share my experience with others, or explain, but they seem too logical. Sometimes I want to explain things but its impossible because it doesn’t consist of words itself.

My Soul

My soul is quantumly entangled to the universe
I am connected to you biologically
To the earth chemically
To the universe atomically
Like atoms separated through time and space
One consciousness experiencing itself subjectively
Ubiquitous existence and infinite wonder 
Surrounding you and I at every moment
Living stardust bringing heaviness into being
Every nanosecond
From atom to galaxy, infinite cosmos
The mystery is omnipresent
Breathe in
My soul
Inside 

AWEstruck

The Biological Advantage of Being Awestruck - by @Jason_Silva from Jason Silva on Vimeo.

"Awe Expands People’s Perception of Time, Alters Decision Making, and Enhances Well-Being" (Forthcoming in Psychological Science)

Melanie Rudd, Kathleen D. Vohs, Jennifer Aaker

When do people feel as if they are rich in time? Not often, research and daily experience suggest. However, three experiments showed that participants who felt awe, relative to other emotions, felt they had more time available and were less impatient. Participants who experienced awe were also more willing to volunteer their time to help others, more strongly preferred experiences over material products, and experienced a greater boost in life satisfaction. Mediation analyses revealed that these changes in decision making and well-being were due to awe’s ability to alter the subjective experience of time. Experiences of awe bring people into the present moment, which underlies awe’s capacity to adjust time perception, influence decisions, and make life feel more satisfying than it would otherwise.

“Our ability to awe was biologically selected for us by evolution because it imbues our lives with a sense of cosmic significance that has resulted in a species that works harder not just to survive but to flourish and thrive,”
— Jason Silva

According to a study by Stanford Study, being in awe of our own self-existence can give us a biological advantage to advance as a species. To dream, to ponder, to marvel, to explore. AWE can expand your perception of time, increase compassion, and empathy, and promote well being.  It can make you less imptiant, more willing, more likely to prefer experiences over material, more in the present, and happier overall. (Read more)

Becoming awestruck can contribute to our motivation; from collective efforts to merely our everyday ambitions. Seek out all the wonder the universe that you encompass has to offer. The evolution of our emotions are part of our adaption to our environment.

Regular experiences of awe makes us feel enlightened. It keeps the imagination high. It keeps you motivated. It gives you a reason to live and love, it keeps us exploring and pushing onwards. It creates a expansion of human vision. A perceptual vastness. It gives us an advantage as a species to transmogrify.

Our desire to understand brings exquisite pleasure and feeds our exploratory voyage, our scientific inquiry, our technological development, and even our poetic self-regard.

Humanity

View from the ISS at Night from Knate Myers on Vimeo.

"Look again at that dot. That’s here, that’s home, that’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there—on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam." — Carl Sagan

The Dream Factory

"What I like about this interpretation of Inception is that it also makes neurological sense. From the perspective of your brain, dreaming and movie-watching are strangely parallel experiences. In fact, one could argue that sitting in a darkened theater and staring at a thriller is the closest one can get to REM sleep with open eyes. Consider this study, led by Uri Hasson and Rafael Malach at Hebrew University. The experiment was simple: they showed subjects a vintage Clint Eastwood movie (“The Good, The Bad and the Ugly”) and watched what happened to the cortex in a scanner. The scientists found that when adults were watching the film their brains showed a peculiar pattern of activity, which was virtually universal. (The title of the study is “Intersubject Synchronization of Cortical Activity During Natural Vision”.) In particular, people showed a remarkable level of similarity when it came to the activation of areas including the visual cortex (no surprise there), fusiform gyrus (it was turned on when the camera zoomed in on a face), areas related to the processing of touch (they were activated during scenes involving physical contact) and so on."

Movies provide dream worlds were we can lose ourselves in. Think of movies like “The Truman Show”, “Vanilla Sky”, “The Matrix”, and “Inception”. The awake dream worlds are no less real than “reality” because reality is also a story we tell ourselves.

Directors create these world’s, they’re almost like deities sculpting and creating a dream with the combination of creative heads to pile into one dynamic film that you, as a viewer, can indulge and experience this dream. They sculpt their imagination and it becomes illuminated in a film. It’s like watching dreams.

From activity in the brain, dreaming and movie watching are strangely parallel experiences. If you think of it, watching a movie is the closest thing to REM sleep you can have with your eyes open. Cinema’s are like shared dreams of the director. Hollywood should just be called a dream factory.

Catharsis in a dream is as real as a catharsis found in a movie is as real as a catharsis found in real life. For example, once you leave the movie theater, your buzzing with new ideas, thoughts and points of view.

Our lives are like movies. But we are our own directors, we can change, co-author, edit, control, and upgrade it. 

Perceive the Universe

We are basically children of stardust. We evoke the entire universe. We evoke light; with no eyes the sun would not be light. We evoke sound; with no ears, vibrations would not produce a noise. Our muscles bring heaviness into being. We are creating what is.

If humans weren’t evolved enough to discover then there wouldn’t be any observations and there wouldn’t be anyone to acknowledge the existence of the cosmos. So it wouldn’t matter if the universe existed or not. The universe is because human beings know it is. We all have fortune souls to experience how fascinating it literally is to be alive and experience all this wonder. Ever lay on your back, gaze at the stars and darkness, and just wonder? It’s really fascinating. Stop and absorb. Life really is a psychedelic experience in itself.

Singularity

ABUNDANCE from Jason Silva on Vimeo.

Singularity is the term taken from physics which describes what happens when you go through a black hole where the the laws of physics no longer apply. The term is used as a metaphor to describe something that is beyond our comprehension. It’s a giant step in transformation. Like the invention of language, before it, it must have been un-imaginable. And that’s exactly how the transformation of the next singularity will be. The next singularity is basically the merging of human’s and technology. Ray Kurzweil predicts it would begin to emerge in 2029. So what makes this a reality?

The next singularity is going to happen because of the exponential growth curves of emerging technologies. The rate of our technology is becoming more advance which takes less time to create because our tools are shortening the time it takes. We have more tools, to create more tools. The lag time between innovation is shorter. And keep in mind, it’s still evolving.

Think about it. There are more computations in our cell phones today than a 60 million dollar super computer that took half a building in size in the 1950’s. A smart cell phone today is a thousand times cheaper, compacter and more powerful than a million dollar super computer was. That’s a billion fold increase in price, performance and miniaturization. A Masai warrior with a cell phone has better mobile phone capabilities than the U.S. president did 25 years ago. 

Think about the lack of communication between cultures and parts of the world in the past, man wandered around separately for thousands of years. There was a slower growth because of the lack of communication but now technology has now created a portal for ideas to roam in free exchange and shared where it can grow exponentially and abundant in the future. Imagine a sea of humanity of instant awareness of events taking places in ranges of thousands of miles. We are living in a world of information and communication.

People naturally think that the future is linear. In reality, the time needed for technology to double is constantly decreasing. So for example, technology that once took 20 years can now take 10, then to 5, then to 2.5, then to 1.25, then to .75 and so on. There are exponential technological growth which is going to lead to the singularity. 

Pair this idea of exponential growth curves in technology with the 3 attributes that will converge together to send us to the next singularity, stated by Jason Silva:

  1. Biotechnology: Manipulating our bodies information processes.
  2. Nanotechnology: Manipulating matter with computations at the level of the atom.
  3. Artificial Intelligence (A.I.): Where non biological intelligence that’s not subject to the limitations of the human brain.

In the book “Abundance” by Peter Diamandis, he states 3 forces at work, each amplified by the power of exponentially growing technology, the once unimaginable is now possible. 

  1. Do-It-Yourself innovators: small groups of motivated DIY-ers can accomplish what was once only managable by large corporations and government. Second is 
  2. Technophilanthropists: Wealthy technophilanthropists are using their fortunes to solve global problems. 
  3. The rising billion: The so called “bottom billion” who are finally plugging into the global economy and poised to now be the rising billion. They have access to the global conversation through technology. 

Humanity generates more data in 2 days than we did in all history up to 2003 and is going to increase exponentially. Over the next eight years, three billion new minds and individuals will be coming online, joining the global conversation, and contributing to the global economy. Imagine their ideas that we never before had access to. New discoveries, products, and inventions. 

If this singularity happens, we can be stronger, and faster than all of the generations before us. It’s like a vaccine to rid us of disease and pain. We can reverse engineer our biology. 

We have achieved more change in the last 100 years than the last billion years! The sum of all this in the next 20 to 30 years is going to be un-imaginable. It’s happening right now! 

Could it be liberation from every limitation? Ever since we picked up a stick to reach a higher branch, we have been using our tools to extend our reach. These tools have been growing exponentially. The future looks exciting.

Ideas, Technology, Open Communication, and Evolution

"RADICAL OPENNESS" - for TEDGlobal 2012 by @Jason_Silva from Jason Silva on Vimeo.

"Man is a bridge not an end." - Friedrich Nietzsche

When a thought or idea is new, it is at it’s most vulnerable state. Thoughts and ideas can catch and evolve in each others mind, almost like they are contagious. Although they aren’t made of DNA, they can still take form in each others minds and become like mental objects of thoughts. Idea’s can “sexify”, basically incept more ideas within an idea, creating more offspring of an idea, and inspire new ones when shared to evolve an idea. These ideas can grow and leap from brain to brain from just 1 person, to a whole collective idea where it changes and grows. These thoughts and ideas are passed onto each other and each can make an idea grow. It’s like ideas are seeds, and once a seed is planet in one head, it’ll grow more of its own unique branches. That’s why I believe they can be a force in evolution! 

If you take a step back and look at the world as a whole, we literally live in the condensations of our imagination, and within ideas and imagination are the infinite beginnings of possibilities, everything was first a thought.

So if you think about it, the ability to create virtual models in our minds combined with our thumbs ushered the secondary evolution called “technology”. The resources are all around us: we take in this matter of little organization, run it through our mental filters and extrude them into technology. 

Think about the lack of communication between cultures and parts of the world in the past, man wandered around separately for thousands of years. There was a slower growth because of the lack of communication but now technology has now created a portal for ideas to roam in free exchange and shared where it can grow exponentially and abundant in the future. Imagine a sea of humanity of instant awareness of events taking places in ranges of thousands of miles. We can grow, develop and enrich our lives in faster ways than ever before. It’s happening this very second. There’s more change in the last 100 years, than the last billion years. Technology is a resource liberating mechanism.

With all these new minds entering the world, ideas can rapture. Technology aids this with more connectedness around the world. Communication is now more open. Our tools are much more wider and stronger now today. The future looks exciting.

Mathematics, the language of nature.

Mathematics is the language of nature. Everything could be read and understood through numbers. If you graph the numbers of any system, patterns emerge. Therefore, there are patterns are all around you.
- From Pi The Movie

Human thoughts have an effect within numbers. There are RNG (Random Number Generators) which human thoughts can have an effect on. In the 1980s Roger Nelson began researching about a strange phenomena that had been reported by other researchers too. These Random Number Generators could be affected by the proximity of the people next to them. And throughout the years they noticed that people have a change on the behaviors of the random number generators. It’s like coin tossing but instead with numbers. 

So they took this idea that if one person can alter the numbers, maybe they could with the mass thoughts of entire cities. So now there’s this global consciousness project where they placed these random number generators all around the globe with over 340 of them: from Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, Europe etc.. And what they noticed was that when large number of people share a conscious state, especially emotional, their network would show a deviation shift in numbers. Every major global event, it has. One of the major global events that had the strongest shift was the presidential elections in 2008 when the polls closed and Obamas victory speech. So I mean, even our human thoughts have an effect in numbers in a collective conscious when the numbers are graphed throughout the globe.

Terrance McKenna had a theory called “Time Wave Zero” where he took the i ching (book of changes), which is one of the oldest chinese classic texts and graphed it. This book traces back to the 3rd and 2nd millennium bc. In the text, there are like 62 sets of hexagrams which are made of horizontal bars and dots. So he took the i ching, and mathematically graphed it in a linear model with a computer program with a rising and falling line. And he noticed something amazing where the parts of the line that were highest to lowest corresponded with times in history when new forms were developing. When it fell into a crevasse, it aligned with a time when reality seemed to be falling apart, or when there was a great event, or group of events all at once that galvanized people. the last rise was around the time of Classical Greece. The last peak was around 1968 when the Vietnam War was escalated into its final death throws. I mean I’m not talking about words and numbers now, but like in the movie Pi, if you graph numbers of any system patterns emerge, and Terrance graphed the I Ching and came upon patterns of history!

Even language is a form of information technology. Terrance McKenna wrote in the “Food of the Gods” that language is a synesthetic technology that allows us to encode information in sound patterns and transmit it wirelessly through time and space! So in essence, language is the first creation of information technology! So with language we transmit information through space and time wirelessly.

So think about it, there’s evidence of our thoughts having an effect on numbers when graphed. Language may encode information in sound. When numbers are graphed, and precisely measured, the future can be predicted through patterns. Mathematics is the language of nature. Everything can be understood through numbers.
