What is all this talk about “Quantum Jumping?” I’m sure many of you have run across the adverts related to this subject, and there is a lot of talk about it on the web, as well. Today, I’m going to delve into this topic and just see what all this “jumping” is about, with or without the quantum babble. With what little I have gathered in the past, I’d say that a person can achieve, whatever this expensive course suppose to do, similar goals with deep meditation and creative imagination, but we’ll see…
[Researching… Watching Videos… Sorting through crap…]
Okay, I’m back. Wow! …Such marketing hype out there!
A quick quote from the official Quantum Jumping website: “Quantum Jumping is a meditation and visualization technique created by 84-year-old Burt Goldman, a leader in the human consciousness movement. Quantum Jumping is a powerful way to tap into the expanded zone of awareness where ideas and inspiration flow freely.”
To me, these people seem to gain a euphoria similar to those in church while praying, singing, and praising the Lord. Some of these folks also seem to feel a sense of Nirvana like people often find in Buddhism and/or during deep meditation while using creative imagination.
To cut to the core of this method, Quantum Jumping is based on the idea that multiple universes exist. This “jumping” technique sounds very similar to astral projection, astral travel or a form of OBE (out-of-body experience), as they (the people that promote & market this concept) claim that you can get in contact with another YOU from another universe. Hmm, I suppose they are proponents of String Theory, as well? Anyway, on their official website, they will plainly tell you that it doesn’t matter if you take their concepts literally or metaphorically, because their classes work, regardless. (Red Flag! Save your money!) I have no doubt that this stuff works well for many people, but if you can achieve the same goal for free or for very little money, why fall for the hype? On the other hand, if ya got plenty of money and are looking to encounter some cool, creative, boogy-boogy astral travel via a wild, free-roaming imagination, dive on in! Oops, I mean jump on out! LOL!
Speaking of classes, they are extremely expensive, by what I gather. Don’t worry, I’ll provide a YouTube video in a moment, that will provide you with an honest review.
Now, I must say, people have been doing this sort of thing for ages! But before, they didn’t have this “Quantum” label to smack onto it.
The whole quantum this and quantum that, is sort of trendy right now, if ya haven’t noticed. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve studied a little bit about quantum mechanics and whatnot, and it’s very interesting, to say the least. It is one aspect of science that does seem to get a little “spooky” or religious-sounding for a lot of standard scientists, but no matter if you agree with the foundation of quantum entanglement or whatever, for example, it makes a person think.
In my opinion, when it comes to quantum entanglement and related theories, viewing the universe and the life within it as a whole, is an excellent way of thinking. Call it a theory of unity if it makes you feel better, but I’ll also provide a video that takes a peek at that, as well.
Since this post does most of its talking by way of videos, I don’t have much to add, other than I see an upcoming spiritual-type religion surfacing more and more, in the field of human consciousness. I believe that this particular way of looking at awareness or spiritual growth via the study of consciousness, is more positive for humanity as whole, when compared to a lot of the dogma I see today, but that’s another subject…
This video features a seemingly honest review about Quantum Jumping:
This video features concepts about quantum entanglement and becoming one with the universe:
What’s your opinion?
If you took the time to read and/or research about Quantum Jumping concepts along with watching those 2 videos provided above, you should have a pretty good idea of whether or not you think there is anything to it or not. Personally, I think Quantum Jumping, whether it works or not, is overly priced marketing hooey, and that one could find the same results or better, by cheaper (or free) alternatives using deep meditation and creative imagination. That’s just my opinion, of course; what’s yours?
I recently asked this question on a community website that is supposedly full of “writers,” (ha-ha!) and, for whatever reason, it got took down and deleted by the moderators. It is totally fine for people to ask inane questions like, “what is toilet paper,” but heaven forbid I ask a question that involves the slightest bit of thought.
At any rate, it was Q & A style question format, and people could also comment on the answers. I’ll copy & paste below, what got banned at HubPages:
Questions »Religion and Philosophy »Exploring Religious Options »Life Philosophies and Beliefs » Is the percentage of people being atheists, lower for gardeners?
After doing lots of garden work today, a thought popped into my head while being covered in dirt, sweat, and sunshine… Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy nature in all aspects, but I can’t help but think about all of the ones who are oblivious to it all. Oh, I’m getting off track here, anyway… I mean seriously, I’m thinking that the percentage of atheists and the ones with no thoughts of creation whatsoever, would be less when concerning people who are gardeners and/or have other hobbies such as hunting, fishing, getting in touch with nature, etc. What’s your thoughts?
I have a deep love of nature and I don’t profess to be involved in any religion. I garden, teach my children to love and respect nature – be it domesticated like gardening or when we are hiking through the thousands of national forest that backs up to our property.
I also know quite a few atheists and agnostics that feel the same as I do. My own lineage includes Native Americans, who had no knowledge of the Christian God, but had a sense of spiritual respect for everything around them. I would have to say that the percentage of Christians who ‘love’ nature has a much lower ratio of respect for the animals they hunt or the plants they tend – as the Bible teaches man is the pinnacle of creation and ‘above’ or ‘in charge’ of the rest of creation.
Most atheists I know believe there is nothing after this life, so they try to live their lives to be as helpful or respectful to others they come in contact with, knowing there is no ‘reward’ after this life.
I digress, though. My answer in short is: No, I don’t think that there are more religious gardeners as opposed to non-religious.
I’m amazed at how many people refer to not being an atheist, must automatically revert to a Christian God, as you say. But, nonetheless, your answer is much appreciated and voted up…
I’m not sure I understand your comment? I’m agnostic, so I don’t believe in either side. I just see most questions of this nature are asked by Christians, so I assumed you meant the Christian God, I’m sorry if I assumed wrong.
I replied with: Ahh, the good ol’ “assumption” excuse; blah! 😀
Julie says: So you weren’t talking about the Christian God? What I am saying is I don’t understand what your comment about ‘must automatically revert to a christian god’ means. If you clarified, I’d be happy to explain without assuming.
I simply replied with: You’re the one who brought up the “Christian God,” not me… Maybe you need to clarify; duh!
Julie ignorantly replies with: Yes, I did, but I asked you to clarify your comment. It makes no sense how you worded it, but now that you’re being rude I don’t care to discuss this nor help your page views by wasting my time here. Be well and I hope you continue to enjoy gardening
I replied with: Blah-blah! If you can’t understand how most people that are atheists or agnostics, often refer to others who speak of God as either Christians or, in some cases, Islamic, then you must really be confused, albeit you’re the one who brought it up!
Somethgblue says: The answer to your question is yes because once you have nurtured a garden to life with your love and care then you have allowed some of Gods light to shine in your soul . . . and everyone could use some of that action.
I replied with: Excellent answer; thanks for sharing… 🙂
Now, after reading all of the crap that followed my innocent question, why in the fuck would any moderator delete such things? Ahh, the joys of having your own website! I’m about ready to say “to hell with those silly community, article-submit sites” and when I do write online, I’ll stick to my own sites and be my own freakin’ moderator! Cheers!
Oh, if anybody has any additional answers to the original question on this post, feel free to leave it in the comment field.
P.S. Happy gardening this year and good luck with ya crops!
—End of Post “Is the percentage of people being atheists, lower for gardeners?”
This post has been relocated here, due to mysterious problems it encountered on a community website, known as HubPages. Anyway…
Here of late, I have stumbled upon a lot of debate about the Theory of Evolution.
In the past, I’ve always accepted the fact that life evolves, adapts, and acclimates to its surroundings. I have never related the theory of evolution with religions or creationists, etc.
Actually, the concepts of evolution should have nothing to do with philosophic pondering or creation theories for that matter, but yet, nowadays it often seems to be lined up in direct opposition with such things.
BUT, before I go on rambling about this subject, I must point out a couple Hubs (out of the many) that are Pro or Con, when it comes to evolution.
The first Hub in question is one that I wasn’t allowed to comment on, perhaps due to my offensive intellect & intuition (it must be unscientific of some sort as they obviously seem to deny intuition as that might be too human-like and advanced for the mechanical brains of scientific theory; ha!) and the fact that the author refused to answer a very simple question of mine pertaining to the missing link between the Homo erectus and the Homo sapiens, here: http://tfscientist.hubpages.com/hub/making-sense-of-evolution-a-step-by-step-guide
On the flip side, which is from a person that held a decent argument against that particular individual (along with getting his comments approved), you can find a Hub that is not totally in favor of the theory of evolution, here: http://smileysock.hubpages.com/hub/Evolution-is-not-a-science
After reading those Hubs, come back here and resume play; anyway…
It’s a different world out there today, and unlike what Darwin originally wrote, albeit he borrowed most of his theories from others and received way too much credit for this notion, a lot of people have somehow managed to turn the “theory of evolution” into a religion, it seems…
In my opinion, among many others including certain biologists with a sense of awareness beyond authoritative textbooks, Evolution is not a real science.
True science would not base its self on assumption of progression with limited fossil evidence, for example.
Yada-yada, I said limited, as I can hear the moans now…
Look, I’m not going deep into the animal kingdom on this one, unless the comments provoke it, because the main point of this Hub is about a question that no evolutionist can ever seem to answer.
You can’t conclude the reason for all the different forms of life without the evidence to do such, which this lovely theory simply can’t do nor can it be absolutely proved and so on.
For one, ya can’t perform live tests on fossil records, and what dead evidence you gather, only leads to educated guesses in hopes that there is no outside variables and factors, which we will cover in a moment.
There are so many holes in this theory of evolution, it isn’t even funny.
If you try to argue with an evolutionist (dang, they got titles, too..), they will simply say that you “don’t understand” what the science is. Does this sound familiar? If you argue with a creationist and their Bible, they may tell you that you “don’t understand” the word of God or the translations.
What is going on here?
Are the core components of spiritual belief and insight about half as right as science and evolutionists?
Whatever happened to intuition?
Definition of intuition: 1) quick and ready insight; 2) the power or faculty of knowing things without conscious reasoning
Can’t people put two and two together? Oh, that’s right, we have mathematicians out there that say 2 + 2 doesn’t equal 4! I’d love to see somebody rationally prove that one, although there really are people out there who play with integers long enough, that they create a fantasy of some sort and alter the reality of actuality.
Well, regardless of personal beliefs, mathematics or science and/or which side of the fence you are on, in my opinion, it takes more faith to believe that we spawned from a single-cell amoeba than from being a dividend of a divinity.
In my opinion, it takes more faith to believe that a so-called “Big Bang” came from a point of a minuscule singularity of “nothing” as opposed to believing that you came from “something.”
By the way, please define a “singularity” in a cosmic fashion…
I’m not getting into a theory of unity on this particular Hub, so please spare me from your ancient philosophy that we all end up holding each other in the end; yikes!
In fact, as interesting as it is, I’m not in the mood to hear about Quantum Entanglement either, at the moment, as this post is about the missing link between the Homo erectus and the Homo sapiens, and how this unexplained gap kills this theory of evolution, at least when humans are involved.
Oh, there are many complaints about the animal kingdom having missing links as well, but the more pertinent matter on my Hub, is about those little, crafty humanoids.
I’m not getting into the whales, giraffes, horses, dinosaurs, superbugs, and so on.
Hold up… Stop!
Watch this quick video that is under two minutes long:
Now, tell me you didn’t laugh at the 1:30 second mark of that video? What is wrong with that picture?
By looking at that chart of his, there is a great eye sore, to say the least…
These evolutionist people are, uh, serious..? Ha-ha!
I mean, holy crap!
You got a Bonobo lined up with a Chimp next to a Humanoid beside a Gorilla and an Orangutan…and this highly worshipped atheist is pointing at all five, while talking about the “great apes being cousins and relatives,” all while one (the Homo sapiens) is not even remotely freakin’ related!
Sarcasm: “Oh yeah, my cousins are chimps and bonobos with my distant homies being gorillas and orangutans.”
Yeah, that makes no sense whatsoever!
These overly educated morons make some of the most asinine preachers look intelligent!
Yeah, and a cow-like being decided to go swimming one day and eventually turned into a whale. WTF!
Anyway, I’m getting off track here … moving back into the subject of the “missing link,” where in the hell is it?
If you really want to read an unbiased paper (Homo Erectus ‘to’ Modern man: Evolution or Human Variability?) about this matter, that ultimately comes to the conclusion of this: “After careful study of hundreds of scientific descriptions and photographs of scores of fossil humans, it is clear to me that all shades of intergrading exist between “ancient” erectus and modern humans, but the chronological patterns of appearance, even using the evolutionists’ own dating methods, do not match the predictions of the theory. In view of the clear-cut and unmistakable morphological gap between apes and humans, I believe that human fossil study provides strong circumstantial evidence in favor of the theistic view of origins.”
Read more, if you are really serious about this subject, here: http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/tj/v8/n1/erectus
Although this page is not primarily concerned with the origins of Homo sapiens, just the missing link between the ape-like Homo erectus and the Homo sapiens that lead one to believe that “humans” seem to have came out of nowhere and just sort of magically appeared as if we were created by another race of beings or by some divinity of some sort, the Theory of Evolution is yet to explain, as noted above, the origins of Homo sapiens (modern man) and my original, seemingly simple question that is always avoided by evolutionists without proof or a sound theory.
It comes down to this, when it concerns our origin (and this is not a freakin’ “non sequitur”):
Did the Evolutionists’ single-cell amoeba do it?
Did the creationists’ God or Gods do it?
Did the aliens from another world do it?
Or did we all do it via a universal consciousness?
Until the day comes when Evolutionists can gracefully explain the missing link between Homo erectus and the Homo sapiens of today, they will never really hold any ground when it comes to real science, fact or actuality.
I know, I know, it would be nice & easy to say that we are all from the same species, race, etc., and that the extinct Homo erectus, Neanderthals, etc., are all close relatives to the same type of beings that roam the earth today and that we all evolved from a single-cell amoeba and got extra motivated from some mad race of trilobites (just threw that in there for fun), but that simply isn’t true.
I hate to say it, but the ancient alien theorists make better sense than the evolutionists when it concerns “human” evolution, and the religionists lie somewhere in between the two. Ah, the joys of life’s mysteries… 😀
Humorous Quote: “Darwin is liked by evolutionists because he liberated science from the straitjacket of observation and opened the door to storytellers. This gave professional evolutionists job security so they can wander through biology labs as if they belong there.” — David Coppedge, Speaking of Science, Creation Matters, May/June 2003
I’ve seen a lot of debates online lately within the comment fields and random forums, and I’m not talking about the typical religion & politics arguments, either. Actually, I usually try to steer clear from religious subjects and politics, unless I’m just in the mood to stir up some shit; ha-ha!
Anyway, I’m seeing a lot more queries about evolution, consciousness, conscience, altruism, anthropic principles, and so on. Although those particular subjects are seemingly more interesting than your basic science versus religion debates, they often start getting to the point where it really doesn’t make a damn difference either way.
At least these people are using their brains for thinking and whatnot, but some times it seems like it would be more productive to focus on your own problems and mundane life, as opposed to being online exchanging thoughts with a bunch of people who are, for the most part, unqualified idiots that think they have unravelled the properties of the universe simply because they had a little too much drugs, alcohol, or way too much free time on their hands. LOL!
At any less than ordinary rate, I’ll get back to the main subject at hand:
Were we born with altruism and a conscience?
Hopefully, in due time, I’ll have some gurus show up in my comment field with their opinions, so that anyone who reads this post, can become enlightened with such infinite wisdom, and so on…
As for my answer: I really don’t know for sure. It seems that humans (along with most other life) are born with a lot of natural instincts and pre-installed cognitive functions, so I’d say that we are born with a conscience along with altruism, but it develops with personal experience and your surroundings, etc. I know at a very, very young age, I sure had a conscience due to my strong feeling of right & wrong. Altruism sounds like a ‘born with’ trait that evolved right along with survival skills…
Okay, I’d like to think that most of y’all know what ‘conscience’ is: “consciousness of the moral right and wrong of one’s own acts or motives.”
Altruism is “unselfish interest in the welfare of others.” “Pure Altruism” is when you give something of value (a reward or benefit) with no expectation of any compensation or benefits, either direct or indirect (for example, receiving recognition for giving). Although altruism is considered “unselfish,” it often seems selfish to me, when you analyze it a little further. Feeling good and gaining a higher level of self-importance from giving something to somebody, providing food to someone, helping someone in need, etc., is sort of like getting something back, just not in a material sense. I suppose it depends on how you look at it, and what type of people we are dealing with.
On a quick change of subject, while searching for online debates featuring the “were we born with altruism and a conscience?” question, I stumbled upon a semi-related topic. Have you ever heard of the Tabula Rasa? Uh, well, I haven’t heard of that one before, not that it was a big loss or anything, just saying… Well, in case you didn’t know what in the hell it was:
“Tabula rasa is the epistemological (a branch of philosophy concerned with the nature of knowledge) theory that individuals are born without built-in mental content and that their knowledge comes from experience and perception. Generally proponents of the tabula rasa thesis favor the “nurture” side of the “nature versus nurture” debate, when it comes to aspects of one’s personality, social and emotional behavior, and intelligence. In Western philosophy, traces of the idea that came to be called the tabula rasa appear as early as the writings of Aristotle. However, besides some arguments by the Stoics and Peripatetics, the notion of the mind as a blank slate went largely unnoticed for more than 1,000 years.” You can read more about this subject online, as I’m not taking up much more space for the “blank mental state” theory, as we have enough blank minds out there as it is…
In closure and in my opinion, when dealing with the question about whether or not we were born with altruism and/or a conscience, I’d say there is more debate about the altruism than the other. With that being said, I’ll provide a couple related links below – one is a fairly large Wikipedia page, and the other link is to some random debate on a philosophy forum that I’ve never been to before:
I recently ran across a silly forum online that was discussing the subject: “If you subtract mankind from the universe, what is left?”
Yeah, a simple answer to that question would be, “less morons and pollution.” But seriously, that whole debate reminded me of a similar subject, the Anthropic Principle, that I stumbled upon last year.
…Since I’m not very educated on this particular subject, I’ll just create a reference post instead. Typically, I like to keep my blog posts all original and basically use freestyle writing, but from time to time, I find it necessary to create link pages with excerpts – in the event that the subject matter is worthy and/or interesting enough, even though I don’t have much to say about it, personally. I think the last time I’ve had to do this on here, was way back when I did the blog post entitled, “Quantum Mechanics & Chaos.”
Anyway, back to the Anthropic Principle subject:
Okay, I’ll provide a brief excerpt from each resource in addition to an active link, below:
1) “Weak Anthropic Principle (WAP): the observed values of all physical and cosmological quantities are not equally probable but they take on the values restricted by the requirement that there exist sites where carbon-based life can evolve and by the requirement that the Universe be old enough for it to have already done so. Strong Anthropic Principle (SAP): the Universe must have those properties which allow life to develop within it at some stage in it’s history.” Read more, here: http://www.physics.sfsu.edu/~lwilliam/sota/anth/anthropic_principle_index.html
2) “Anthropic Bias, a book that since its first publication in 2002 has achieved the status of a classic, explores how to reason when you suspect that your evidence is biased by “observation selection effects”— that is, evidence that has been filtered by the precondition that there be some suitably positioned observer to “have” the evidence. This conundrum—sometimes alluded to as “the anthropic principle,” “self-locating belief,” or “indexical information”—turns out to be a surprisingly perplexing and intellectually stimulating challenge, one abounding with important implications for many areas in science and philosophy. ” Read more about this interesting book, here: http://www.anthropic-principle.com/
3) “The ultimate question here is whether there is or was some special intention or plan for the appearance of humans in the universe, and, if so, was there or is there some intending entity or intelligence or being or “creator” existing “behind” or “over” the universe and the particular qualities that occur within it. If the universe or cosmos is purely mechanistic, consisting only of matter and physical entities (forces, energy, fields, etc.), then it seems that the answer to that question of an intending entity or intelligence or creator would be “no.” But then what is the source of those closely balanced features that are observed in the existing cosmos—are they just happenstance or fortuitous coincidences? Can coincidence or lucky happenstance be a sufficient answer to this problem?” Read more about this thought-provoking subject, here: http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Anthropic_principle
Oh, I also found a related quote online, when searching about this particular topic: “As we look out into the Universe and identify the many accidents of physics and astronomy that have worked together to our benefit, it almost seems as if the Universe must in some sense have known that we were coming.” -F. Dyson
Anyway, back to the resources…
4) “In astrophysics and cosmology, the anthropic principle is the philosophical argument that observations of the physical Universe must be compatible with the conscious life that observes it. Some proponents of the argument reason that it explains why the Universe has the age and the fundamental physical constants necessary to accommodate conscious life. As a result, they believe that the fact is unremarkable that the universe’s fundamental constants happen to fall within the narrow range thought to allow life.” Read more from Wikipedia, here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthropic_principle
Okay, I just provided 4 excellent resources that covers the Anthropic Principle. If you’re more interested in taking your studies a little further and would like to possibly purchase some books about this subject, I’ll provide a shopping link below, to help hastened your search:
I’ve been hearing about this type of phenomena for years, even as a small child, but does it really exist? This amazing feat of mind-over-matter and/or the ability to move objects with mere thought, perhaps may be more properly known as (PK) “psychokinesis,” although I usually hear it called (TK) “telekinesis.” Personally, I don’t care what you call it; I just want some real, raw proof that it actually exist without all the inconclusive evidence, failed test results, magic tricks, mental delusions and any other grey area that covers the land of utter hooey.
Don’t get me wrong, I used to be more into this type of stuff and my curious mind would rarely rule out something as impossible unless I knew for sure, but as the years pass by, it seems that more and more people are obsessed with miraculous magic, mythical gods, fictitious fantasies full of fairy tales, and so on. I suppose people are getting bored with actuality and want to create a newfangled, altered reality that simply isn’t even there to begin with. This brings us to one of the many subjects that fit within the walls of “real or not real” and/or “exist or nonexistent,” and that being Telekinesis – a.k.a. Psychokinesis.
Okay, I’m not going to drag this subject out further than it should, so I’ll be rather quick; if you’d like to add more to this particular blog post when I’m done, there’s always a comment field that you can blast your opinions into.
Now, I’ve read a fair amount about psychokinesis over the years, but never really took it that serious. I always figured that it would be a big stretch for the mind to be able to noticeably move objects using brain power alone, and that if it was ever able to be achieved, it would take years of practice to be able to barely move a tiny object a fraction of an inch. What makes the possibility of telekinesis the most interesting to me, is not the actual moving of objects with your mind, but all the scientific laws that it would destroy in the process. I’m still undecided – when it comes to whether or not it exist. Personally, I’ve never really messed with it that much because I figured that, even if I did succeed in the manifestation of my TK or PK abilities, my life would not change or be impacted much if I could make a tiny object move a fraction of an inch by concentrating for extended periods of time. …Talk about a waste of time!
At any rate, when speaking about measurement and observation, parapsychology researchers describe two basic types of measurable and observable psychokinetic and telekinetic effects in experimental laboratory research and in case reports occurring outside of the laboratory. Micro-PK (also micro-TK) is a very small effect, such as the manipulation of molecules, atoms, subatomic particles, etc., that can only be observed with scientific equipment. The words are abbreviations for micro-psychokinesis and micro-telekinesis. Macro-PK (also macro-TK) is a large-scale effect that can be seen with the unaided eye. The adjective phrases “microscopic-scale,” “macroscopic- scale,” “small-scale,” and “large-scale” may also be used; for example, “a small-scale PK effect.”
So as you can see, some folks are so desperate to prove that telekinesis / psychokinesis really does exist, that they are willing to test down to the microscopic particles, such as atoms and whatnot… Ha-ha! Even the macroscopic-scale of measurement during some of these TK tests, involves very tiny objects.
In closing: The sad reality is that regardless of all the claims thus far, there hasn’t been anyone who has proven to the scientific community without a shadow of doubt, that psychokinesis exist without magic tricks or trickery, bogus tests results, scams, con-artist acts, flimflams, and so on… I can tell you one thing, if a person can actually look at an object and fling it across the room just by thinking about it, with the way the world’s communication and media is today, they will be on the news and a global star within hours. Of course, they will also most likely be subjected to a battery of strange lab tests, so if you really can lift your couch up off the floor just by thinking about it, you might want to keep quiet about it unless you like a bunch of people wearing white coats, shoving probes up your ass… Ha-ha-ha!
Maybe Telekinesis should just be for entertainment on the Television and Psychokinesis should just be a sport for the Psychopaths? Does TK and PK really exist? If so, is it on a large enough scale to really count? What’s the largest object you have moved with your mind? You tell me…
The reason for this post, is due to a comment I received on another blog of mine. A few months ago, I did a post on a “Myths, Legends, & Folklore” blog of mine with a title: “Share your supernatural, occult, ghost stories…” On that post, it gave the readers a chance to share any type of ghost stories they have been told by friends, family and/or that they have personally experienced and whatnot, that related to the supernatural, poltergeist, etc. Well, I also made it very clear how all comments will be deleted that are not related, and so on. Outside of the usual spam, the only comment I got so far was from some self-proclaimed, all-knowing, occult master of anything outside of our current 3 dimensional realm of physical existence. Yeah, sort of like the religious folks who seem to know all about everything that can’t be proven… uh, yeah, you get the drift.
However, since I deleted his/her comment on my myth blog (since it absolutely did not relate to the “share your ghost stories” concept), I decided that, due to it still being an interesting subject, I would post it here and make a blog post about it.
The self-proclaimed occult master’s comment was: “If you have seen a ghost with your eyes while in a state of awake consciousness – you are psychic. Ghosts do not exist on the third dimension of reality. Your body and 5 traditional senses cannot see or sense anything outside the physical 3rd dimensional realm. In order to know, see or sense beyond the traditional 5 senses you must shift your consciousness to a higher vibration, that of the 4th or 5th dimensions. Your eyeballs do not see ghosts or energy – your pineal glad or third eye is the eye that sees.”
Okay, instead of turning this post into a rant featuring my disgust for all of these people who seem to know everything but can never prove a damn thing, I’ll just move right along and maintain a semi-tolerance for asininity. You know, they do say that often times the true kooks and insane lunatics are simply failed mystics… ha-ha!
Okay, so the occult master says that we sense and see all of this energy and ghost stuff with our pineal gland. Well, since I work night-shift, maybe my pineal gland is not active enough to see all of this boogy-boogy, nifty, illuminating bliss that only occurs outside of our physical dimensional realm of reality. Damn, this sucks! Y’all lucky bastards… Ha! The reason why I say mine may not be active enough to see outside of our current 3 dimensional realm, other than the fact that I don’t take illegal drugs, is because the pineal gland’s known primary function is to produce melatonin – and it only does that in complete darkness and I’m in light most of the time – due to working the graveyard/night-shift.
For example, per Wikipedia: “The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions; in humans and other mammals, the light signals necessary to set circadian rhythms are sent from the eye through the retinohypothalamic system to the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) and the pineal; the secretory activity of the pineal gland is only relatively understood; historically, its location deep in the brain suggested to philosophers that it possessed particular importance; this combination led to its being a “mystery” gland with myth, superstition and occult theories surrounding its perceived functions.”
Okay, now that we have this “3rd eye” concept out of the way, and realize that we have yet to fully understand the mystery of the human brain and its surrounding parts, and that we are obviously designed to see and sense within our current 3 dimensional realm AND why some people and their crazy pineal glands spend all of this time trying to sense things that are not tangible whatsoever, will also remain a mystery until the, uh, uh, I don’t know, the “great awakening into the 5th level of existence” occurs? Yep, your guess is as good as mine… Dang, this mystic stuff is fun… Ha-ha!
Okay, I’m getting sidetracked here… Now what about this 4th and 5th dimension that the occult master spoke about? How do we, as the occult master says, “shift your consciousness to a higher vibration?” Hmm, fascinating… You mean to tell me that there are people out there who can shift their consciousness like a transmission with gears, into a higher vibration that takes them into other dimensions? Damn, this whole time, I always called that “imagination.” But the occult master, along with many other mystics, call this a “shift in consciousness.” Where is some good hallucinogenic drugs when you need them? Shit, I’m all out! Ha!
All of this “can you see or sense outside our 3 dimensional realm” crap, reminds me of a post I did last year: “4th & 5th Dimensions, Time Travel & Parallel Universes.” It was thought-provoking, but I didn’t get all super-mystic or claim to be all-knowing like a lot of folks do – when it comes to these unprovable subjects.
In closing, maybe some people can sense or see outside of this lovely 3 dimensional realm, and maybe I’m just jealous that I haven’t unlocked the properties of the universe like a lot of mystics say that they have. Maybe I’m just too dumb to understand outside of what can been seen, felt, tasted, or proven to exist. Maybe that’s why a lot of religions started when they still thought the earth was flat. Maybe I’d be better off, with my understanding of the universe that surrounds me, if I just started acting like a kid again and started using more imagination along with making stuff up as I go. You know, it was really fun to believe in Santa Claus living at the North Pole – as it sure made Christmas time more interesting as a small child – even though it was a complete lie filled with fictitious bull-shit. Surely you remember the Tooth Fairy as a kid? Was there really piles of gold at the end of the rainbows and how about those Leprechauns, as well? So hell, why should I not give it another shot? Ha-ha-ha! I don’t know about you, but the ancient astronauts would probably be slightly pissed about our current level of intelligence on planet Earth. This place reminds me of Kindergarten through 3rd grade, except this place most likely used to be High School, long, long, ago… Cheers!
—End of Post “Can you see or sense anything outside this 3 dimensional realm?”
It was a calm, summer night; the perfect temperature for a ride today.
With the radio blaring, windows down, the cruise is underway.
It’s time to reminisce; it’s time to clear one’s pulsating head.
As the series of thoughts and memories start running wild, the brain is cluttered instead.
At times, the ride seems like it should never end, as you are thinking about the past and stuck in rewind.
But the song changes on the radio, the future comes to mind, now you’re moving forward in time.
Depending on the beat, you may either have a positive outlook of what awaits or a sense of foreboding may take place.
Your mind, your car, the radio, the night, time, your brain, all seem to be in some weird race.
Okay, the songs stop on the radio; it is time for the adverts to start.
You’re thinking, waiting for the music, now your brain switches control and hands it to the heart.
Now, no longer pondering during this ride, you are now feeling what you have thought prior.
The car slows down in miles-per-hour, you start to swerve, as if someone has deflated a tire.
I need to go home; what am I doing?
No, I need to ride more; I know where I am going!
Your inner voice then makes this silent query: Do ya?
—End of Short Poem: “Night Rider – Lost or Found?”
For the most part, I usually steer clear from religious subjects on this blog, but it doesn’t hurt to throw in some random divine dung on occasions, right? Sort of like when I did the post a while back that was entitled “What in the Hell is Kabbalah?”
Anyway, I’m not into “organized” religions. At times, some of these “religions” seem to cause more harm than good, start wars, etc. The way I look at it: If you can find something good out of religions and it makes you a better person or helps you in whatever way with your own life, then that is great. …BUT, if you find yourself frequently judging, soliciting, and trying to pervade other people’s life with your religious opinions, then maybe you need to re-evaluate your own belief system. Speaking of that, I did a religion-related post over at a myth & folklore blog a while back, and you can find it here with the title: ‘Holier than Thou’ Christians are Pathetic!
Okay, now back to the original subject “Christian’s Version of ‘Hell’ makes no sense!”
Instead of going on and on about contradictions and the obvious unfair, unjust concepts of Hell, I’ll just keep it short and drop down a couple simple scenarios below. If there are any “Christians” out there who has an ultimate answer for this post, feel free to use the comment field to spread further enlightenment and all-knowing knowledge into the masses of “unsaved” ones that you suppose to pity ever-so dearly…
A typical Christian’s version of the ‘Hell’ Scenario gone wrong:
[Of course, I’m using fictional characters with no relation to any real-life events.]
Scenario #1 – Lets say a guy named Luke grew up with good raising. He was a spoiled little bastard that aways wanted the best of everything and always got what he wanted. Well, later on, he became bored with life. When he grew older, he started having fantasies that involved murdering people for fun. With lots of plotting and planning, he later went on to become a serial killer at age 30. This guy ended up killing 35 people over a period of 20 years before finally getting caught. In addition to that, he had a fetish for raping young girls. Now, he sits in prison for life, with no hope of ever getting out. Well, after he reached the age of 55, he starts to feel bad for what he has done, and starts getting into the beloved Christianity, and gets “saved” and blessed with eternal life because he “found Jesus” in prison.
Verdict: By Christian belief, this bad guy is not going to “Hell.”
Scenario #2– Lets say a guy named John grew up living the tough life. He was a farmer, hunter, fisherman, and held a full-time job in the construction biz. He was married to a faithful, loving wife and had 5 kids to raise via lots of hard work. He kept food on the table, had excellent morals, and respected the individual. John loved the countryside and was very close to nature and wildlife and believed that we should treasure ever moment we have alive. Well, although John typically stayed out in the country most of the time when he was off, he would still get harassed by Bible-thumpers and Christians who kept trying to get him to go to their church. They would often ask him, “do you know if you’re going to heaven if you die? Have you accepted Jesus in your life?” John would normally look at them straight in the eye, spit on the ground, and tell them to go shove their religion up their bunghole. John once told a Christian who wanted a donation for their church, to go get a real job or ask their God for the money, and went on. He said he wanted no part of something he can’t see, feel, or prove that exists and that he is a realist in the real world. He also asked a Christian one time, “why does Jesus, who was suppose to be so miraculous, not even have a known birthday?” He got no answer, and never seen the reason for church or religions.
Verdict: By Christian belief, this good guy is going to “Hell.”
Now, after reading those two scenarios, does the typical Christian’s version of Hell make any sense to you??? Just think, some preachers basically threaten people with an eternal blow torch while telling them they have a “free will.” That would also be similar to holding a “supposedly” loaded gun to a person’s head and saying, “hey, you are free to have an opinion about this matter, but I will kill you if you disagree with me, so you better just nod, accept, and give me your money.” Hmm, it makes no sense to me…… Well, unless you find justice in armed robbery using a fake gun. Ha-ha-ha!
Death, death, “until death do us apart,” as they say.
From what, you may ask, as the question often equals something that mimics a grand haze.
A gag, a gift, unholy, holy, and something that drifts apart but yet stays.
I am to be one with myself, yet to explore another day.
I shall exist, remain, and without my shadow of doubt, I’ll remain in malaise.
I see myself so I feel now, while cast away, but I finally found a fucking way!
To be or not to be, is what is abstruse.
To do or not to do, is what you often choose.
“Think not, what the scientist says,” speaks the curious theist.
“Think not, what the woo-woo says,” exclaims the angry atheist.
You live, you die, but ya can’t even remember your transit from birth, how so lame.
You die, you live, but ya can’t even go back and proclaim, after you realize this isn’t so insane.
You lie, you lie, death be told; it is all alive as you live, you live; as the universal consciousness survives…
Today you sit and ponder, without nothing to be said but a complex question.
Yesterday you lie there wondering about tomorrow, and why you have the need for detestation.
Tomorrow you seek the answer to something that is unanswerable due to your current infestation.
What’s death when you can’t remember birth and what’s life when you can’t remember death?
