One tribe

The idea that we are one tribe, one people not separated by race or nationality, is not a new one. The concept of Oneness has been spoken of in religion, philosophy and psychology throughout the centuries. Buddha's teachings spoke of us all being one, connected to each other and with all of creation and, in the Hindu religion, it is believed that the divisions between people are an illusion because we all come from one source. In the Taoist philosophy, oneness is a fundamental principle, along with the recognition that we live in a world of duality in this physical reality, containing opposites which need to be balanced for the individual to experience harmony. In psychology, Jung spoke of the collective unconscious, an energy pool of collective memory that we all access unconsciously.

Until recently, the concept of oneness depended upon faith because there was no scientific proof.  But since the development of quantum theory, various experiments have shown that this not just a spiritual concept but, from a scientific perspective, a provable reality. One such experiment is the 'quantum entanglement' experiment in which two electrons are put together until they vibrate in unison and are then separated by distances up to 100 km.  But, despite this distance between them, when one electron is modified the other is too - instantly.  This appears to show that, once two things have been joined together, they are always connected after that, even if they are no longer connected physically.  According to quantum physicists, the electrons could be on opposite sides of the planet and the same results would be observed.  This is reflected in research discussed by Gregg Braden in his book, The Divine Matrix, conducted by the US army whereby skin cells were taken from a volunteer's mouth and taken to another room where they were measured electrically.  At the same time, the volunteer was shown video images to provoke strong emotions.  As the volunteer was experiencing these emotions and having them electrically measured, so his cells and DNA reacted powerfully at the exact same moment as though his cells were still a part of his body. Another experiment is the study of the location of memories in the brain. Psychologist, Karl Lashley, trained rats to run a maze and then, in order to discover where the memory of how to run the maze was located in the brain, began removing areas of brain tissue. What he discovered was that regardless of where he removed the tissue, the rats still remembered how to run the maze. The conclusion then was that memory is not held in any one part but all over the brain.

A possible explanation for these three seemingly unrelated experiments could be the theory, originally posited by the quantum physicist David Bohm, that the universe is holographic. Holographic means that every part is a reflection of the whole, so that if you separate one small fragment it will contain an entire, although less detailed, image of the whole. For example, when the hologram of a rose is made, if the hologram is broken into two, both parts will have the image of the rose. If you break it again into quarters, all four parts will each contain an image of the rose and so on. In the case of a holographic universe, any change you make to the whole will be reflected in the part. In turn, any change you make to a part, being a part of the whole, will change it also.

It is generally accepted by mainstream scientists that our universe formed 13.7 billion years ago in an event known as the "big bang".  All the matter and energy that make up the universe today were concentrated into a single point no bigger than the head of a pin. For reasons unknown this point suddenly blew apart in a colossal explosion and all the matter and energy flew outwards propelled by extreme heat and expanded to form the universe in which we live today. Despite having come from one single point, scholars have chosen to see our world as composed of parts that must be separated from the whole and studied independently. This belief in the separateness of the all the elements that make up our world has, in the view of David Bohm, brought about the crises in which humanity finds itself today. In his book, Wholeness and Implicate Order, he wrote,

"The notion that all these fragments are separately existent is evidently an illusion, and this illusion cannot do other than lead to endless conflict and confusion. Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today. Thus, as is now well known, this way of life has brought about pollution, destruction of the balance of nature, over-population, world-wide economic and political disorder and the creation of an overall environment that is neither physically nor mentally healthy for most of the people who live in it. Individually there has developed a widespread feeling of helplessness and despair, in the face of what seems to be an overwhelming mass of disparate social forces, going beyond the control and even the comprehension of the human beings who are caught up in it."
 So if we accept that we are one instead of separate, how does that change anything? With a belief in the oneness of humanity, perhaps we would no longer have a need for nationalism, blind patriotism and wars fought because we believe those others are wrong or a dangerous threat to our way of life. If our separateness is an illusion then, as many wise spiritual leaders have said, what we do to another we do to ourselves because there is no you and me. There's only one and so, as it says in the bible, do unto others as you would have others do unto you.  And if we believed that we were one with the planet on which we live, wouldn't we realise that what we did to it, we were doing to ourselves? Would it not be better to appreciate the diversity of the people who live on our planet, enjoy the fact that we look different, speak differently and do things differently? After all, it would be very boring if we were all the same. But of course, these things are superficial because in the important ways, we're the same regardless of where we come from or what we look like. We all love our families and our friends. We desire the best for them, for ourselves, and for the wider local and global communities. We want to care for the planet, to which we are also connected, and to grow and prosper in whatever way brings us joy. Fundamentally, we all want to live peacefully in a world without fear.

If we change our belief system from separation to unity consciousness perhaps we can change paths from one leading towards disaster to one that leads us towards a world that we have only dreamed about. The universe is a sea of energy of which we are all a part. Everything we think and do affects the whole, so if we want to change the world we need to start with ourselves. By making changes within ourselves we can affect the whole and be a part of creating the world we desire.

Steorn - a free energy story

The above advertisement appeared in an issue of The Economist on 18 August 2006.  It was placed by the Irish technology company, Steorn, as a way to publicise their alleged discovery of a free energy technology. They made the discovery by accident whilst developing covert surveillance equipment for ATMs. As they knew the scientific community would not believe them - they could hardly believe it themselves - they took the decision to go public in this dramatic way in the hope of attracting interested people to look at their discovery.  

The reason for their disbelief is that creating a device that produces free energy is considered impossible. Free energy, also called overunity, means that the device produces more energy than is put into it which violates the second law of thermodynamics. This law states that, in a closed system, you can only get out of the system the same or less energy than you put into it. But, according to Steorn, their technology does just that. Orbo, as they have since named their technology, works by the use of moving magnets and, they claim, is over 100% efficient or, in other words, it produces more energy than is put into it. Despite approaching several academic institutions, most refused to even look at the technology, but those that did complete testing confirmed their claims, according to Steorn.  However, they have refused to go on the record publicly perhaps due to fear of the loss of reputation that would quite likely follow the backing of such claims.   

So Steorn's reason for placing the ad in The Economist was to propose a challenge that would attract highly qualified individuals to make up a jury to test and validate their claims of overunity. This they achieved and, after verifying the qualifications of the members, the testing and validating process began. In July 2007, they publicised a live demonstration of the technology. But when it came to the day, they could not get it to work due to some technical difficulties. This resulted in ridicule from some members of the scientific community who were already understandably skeptical of their claims.  After two years of study, the jury announced their findings on 23 June 2009 in which they found unanimously that Steorn had failed to show any energy production from their devices. 

However, despite this disappointing result, Steorn were undeterred and continued to launch and market their Orbo technology. They held another demonstration on 30 January 2010 to an audience of about 100 at the Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre in Dublin with another 800 watching online.  According to the following article, the results were promising: The Demo's done - has Steorn won? (for those scientists among you). Their claim is that their Orbo technology total energy output is 327% of the total energy input. Since then, they have developed other applications of the technology such as the overunity water heater, Hephaheat.  Their business plan is not to produce devices themselves for sale in the marketplace, but instead to sell licences to other technology companies to develop their own products.

If Steorn's claims are as ground-breaking as they say, it means that they will be among the first to start a revolution in energy production that will change our lives beyond recognition. As one person said, this technology is as important to humanity as the discovery of fire or the invention of the wheel.  Therefore I, for one, will be watching them very carefully.

After watching the film, Thrive, in which corn circles were mentioned, I remembered this song. I first heard it when I lived next to a corn circle investigator in Bristol who used to go out flying at the weekends with his pilot friend looking for new circles.  Most of the circles appear in the West Country, mainly in the counties of Wiltshire and Somerset, especially near the White Horse, Silbury Hill and Avebury.  I once stood inside one, but unfortunately due to it's messy appearance, I'm sure it was manmade whereas others are so elaborate and so perfectly executed that many believe they have been made by extra-terrestrials or some other intelligence. They usually appear in the middle of the night and I have heard stories from people who say they were sitting in the next field looking out for signs of activity and neither heard nor saw anything but the next morning, when the sun came up, there was a beautiful corn circle right next to them!

Thrive movie trailer

I was going to wait until I had watched the movie before posting this trailer, but I wanted to share this movie as soon as possible. It sets out many of the fears and concerns I have had over the years for our world, such as oil dependency and the suppression of viable alternatives, genetically modified organisms and the sinister monopolisation of our food supply and, without having watched it yet, it also seems to be saying that one of my dreams for the future could become a reality. That is that free energy will replace the polluting and destructive fossil fuels that we have relied on for centuries and enable us to throw off the chains of bondage that our oil-based economies have subjected us to for far too long. With a free, clean, never-ending supply of energy our reality will change beyond all comprehension. Certainly, it will change in ways that I can't even imagine.  But what is so exciting is that I really believe that I'm going to see it happen and, in a small way, be a part of it. I can't wait.

If you are as excited to watch it as I am then go to:
There you can watch it for $5 in several different languages (Arabic, Spanish, French, Chinese etc.).  Come on, what's $5 ? It's a small price to pay to be inspired!
P.S. They're not paying me for my recommendation!
