Cosmic Symphony: A Deeper Look at Quantum Consciousness
The rise of quantum consciousness could be the biggest step our species has taken since it came down from the trees. It would bring us to a new stage of species maturity and could also enable us to surmount the problems that threaten our life and our future.

But just what is quantum consciousness, or QC? I have spoken about QC in my previous posts, but the question merits a further, deeper look.

First of all, what is consciousness? The commonsense assumption is that consciousness is a stream of experience produced by the brain. As long as the brain functions, there is consciousness; when the brain shuts down, consciousness vanishes. This, however, is not necessarily the case. It could be that our brain no more produces consciousness than the radio produces the symphony that comes through its speakers. The symphony, too, disappears when the radio is shut down, yet we know that it's not produced by the radio. Both the radio and the brain pick up signals, transform them, and display the result in our stream of conscious experience.

According to received wisdom, the things and events that make up our experience of the world originate in the world. People and things around us reflect light and make sound; for the most part they can be seen, heard, touched, smelled, or tasted. The corresponding signals reach our eye and ear in the form of waves in the electromagnetic field, in the air, and in the physical, chemical, and biological fields in and around our body. Our exteroceptive senses transform this information into nerve signals, and the signals are analyzed, sharpened, and interpreted by our brain. The result is the experience that appears in our consciousness.

This is the gist of the standard scientific explanation of our perception of the world, but it's not complete.... cont'd

DNA Found to Have "Impossible" Telepathic Properties


DNA has been found to have a bizarre ability to put itself together, even at a distance, when according to known science it shouldn't be able to. Explanation: None, at least not yet.

Scientists are reporting evidence that contrary to our current beliefs about what is possible, intact double-stranded DNA has the amazing ability to recognize similarities in other DNA strands from a distance. Somehow they are able to identify one another, and the tiny bits of genetic material tend to congregate with similar DNA. The recognition of similar sequences in DNAs chemical subunits, occurs in a way unrecognized by science. There is no known reason why the DNA is able to combine the way it does, and from a current theoretical standpoint this feat should be chemically impossible... cont'd

2. Hi. Glad you're finding some value in this info. Not sure what you mean
when you say you hope I'll "continue this soon".
By that do you mean continue to post on this topic?

I do so agree with the first article that our very survival may depend on getting to this stage
in our evolution. It seems the only and obvious next step in our collective journey and our soul's progression toward integration and wholeness.

3. I am very interested in this topic so I was saying that I looked forward
to more posts from you on the subject.

I agree with the first article also, but I am wondering if oneness is still possible. There was a time when I believed that we, all of us, could achieve integration and wholeness together. In fact I have had several recurring dreams where we -all- awoke at the same moment. An exciting dream, but a dream whose possibilities seem more and more remote. Does this make any sense?

Anyway, I look forward to more posts from you


peace

4. Here's some food for thought. 2012 is a LEAP year.
2012 Is A LEAP Year

Literally and figuratively.
Some prefer the word 'shift' in relation to the changes in human consciousness.
But perhaps LEAP is a better description. And that thought led me to recall this
excerpt from Alvin Toffler's book, Third Wave:



Copyright Kaylin Keith


Dr. Ilya Prigogine and his teams of co-workers at the Free University of Brussels and the University of Texas at Austin have struck directly at Second Wave (industrial era) assumptions by showing how chemical and other structures leap to higher stages of differentiation and complexity through a combination of chance and necessity. It is for this work that Prigogine was awarded the Nobel Prize.
Born in Moscow, brought to Belgium as a child, and fascinated since youth by the problems of time, Priogogine was puzzled by a seeming contradiction. On the one hand, there was the physicist's belief in entropy - that the universe is running down and that all organized patterns must eventually decay. On the other, there was the biologist's recognition that life itself is organization and that we are continually giving rise to higher and higher, more and more complex organization. Entropy pointed in one direction, evolution in another.

This led Prigogine to ask how higher forms of organization come into being, and to years of research in chemistry and physics inpursuit of the answer.

Today Prigogine points out that in any complex system, from the molecules in a liquid to the neurons in a brain or the traffic in a city, the parts of the system are always undergoing small-scale change: they are in constant flux. The interior of any system is quivering with fluctuation.

Sometimes, when negative feedback comes into play, these fluctuations are damped out or suppressed and the equilibrium of the system maintained. But, where amplifying or positive feedback is at work, some of these fluctuations may be tremendously magnified - to the point at which the equilibrium of the entire system is threatened. Fluctuations arising in the outside environment may hit at this moment and further amplify the mounting vibration - until the equilibrium of the whole is destroyed and the existing structure is smashed.**

Whether the result of runaway internal fluctuations or of external forces, or both, this breakup of the old equilibrium often results not in chaos or breakdown, but in the creation of a wholly new structure at a higher level. This new structure may be more differentiated, internally interactive, and complex than the old one, and needs more energy and matter (and perhaps information and other resources) to sustain itself. Speaking mainly about physical and chemical reactions, but occasionally calling attention to social analogues, Priogogine calls these new, more complex systems "dissipative structures".

He suggests that evolution itself may be seen as a process leading toward increasingly complex and diversified biolgoical and social organisms, through the emergence of new, higher-order dissipative structures.... "Order out of chaos". -- Alvin Toffler, The Third Wave p. 324-325

** It is illuminating to think of the economy in these terms. Supply and demand are maintained in equilibrium by various feedback processes. Unemployment, if intensified by positive feedback and not offset by negative feedback elsewhere in the system, can threaten the stability of the whole. Outside fluctuations - such as oil, price hikes - may converge to make the internal swings and fluctuations wilder, until the equilibrium of the whole system is shattered.

5. The Resonance Project and the use of sound
Edited on Sat Feb-26-11 04:08 PM by Dover
World Sound Healing Day

Creating Sound Temples

Some time ago in deep meditation, I was instructed on the importance of co-creating events in which people would create sacred sound together in order to heal the planet. World Sound Healing Day is such an event. I was told that gatherings where people sounded sacred tones filled with the intention of Love were THE single most effective tool for manifesting change on the planet at this most precarious time in our existence.

The gatherings of people in this manner is one aspect of the creation of Sacred Sound Temples, where people could sound together and experience the divine without getting tied down in the duality of separatism by giving it a name, or a belief system or a particular dividing code. People would simply sound together and through sounding together, experience the oneness of all. These Sacred Sound Temples were and are not an original ideaothers have spoken about them before and they are indeed ancient in origin. These Sacred Sound Temples would be non denominationalallowing and accepting the love, worship and reverence of all who wish to resonate together regardless of race, creed or color. This concept of worshipping the Divine (or whatever name you wish to call it) without having to follow a specific path, without competition or creating the other as being wrong is of paramount importance with regard to creating peace on this planet and creating peace within and without.

The actual creation of the Sacred Sound Temples is simply a focal point, though their manifestation on the physical and etheric planes does provide key anchoring points for transformative energies. I believe that Chris James, Tom Kenyon and others have already achieved this and we give thanks for their work. However, no temple is neededit is simply an etheric matrix or blueprint of consciousness that needs to evolve and allow people to sound freely and become one with each other and the divine in this process. The greatest Sacred Sound Temple that can exist, is of course, the Earth itself...cont'd
