Living and Participating in the Conscious Universe
Karma, what goes around comes around, do not do to others what you would not want to be done to you, there are a bunch of sayings like these. But do such things really matter? The way you treat anyone else in the world? Are we all connected, in this system that values each one of us as an individual?
We as humans have such potential its not a joke, when you realize what you can manifest just with your thoughts and prayers. When I did the article on Larry Carlson, nearly a year ago, he told me he was privileged to be along side with such great people. More importantly he led me to Gregg Braden who’s work he liked.
I slept on that, I visited his Greg’s site, read about the conscious universe, but when the earthquake in China happened, I knew I had to write about it. People all around the world have had their eyes on China, asking them to free Tibet.
The Conscious Universe
The brutality of the Chinese in the way they handled the protests got the world demanding change. But China held firm, ignoring our thoughts our words and actions. Although I have no reason to believe that all those wish’s and wants went unanswered, the recent earthquake makes me wonder if it was the manifestation of the thoughts of people around the world? How can something like this happen, let me introduce to you to the conscious universe.
In 1967 the pioneering physicist Konrad Zuse married the ideas of consciousness with modern technology and proposed that our universe works like a massive consciousness computer. And just as every computer translates “Input-commands” into “Output-results.”
Our cosmic consciousness computer appears to do precisely the same thing! When we translate our deepest beliefs into the reality of our world, we are literally re-writing the code that makes the universe appear as it does.
Living in a Participatory Universe
A series of breathtaking discoveries has given us a powerful new way to think of our role in the universe. Rather than the conventional view that suggests we are passive observers, living a brief moment of time in a creation that already exists, the discoveries suggest that it is actually consciousness itself that is responsible for the existence of the universe!
Perhaps the most revolutionary discovery supporting this idea, is the scientific fact that when we look at the stuff our world is made of tiny quantum particles such as an electron, for example the very act of us watching that electron changes the way it behaves in our presence.
What’s more, the longer we look, the more it changes! In 1998, scientists at Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science documented this phenomenon showing that “the greater the amount of ‘watching,’ the greater the observer’s influence on what actually takes place.” Citing such experiments, Princeton University physicist John Wheeler suggests that we not only play a role in the creation of our everyday world, but we play the prime role in what he calls a “participatory universe.”
Wheeler states that we can no longer think of ourselves merely as onlookers who have no effect on the world around us, because it is impossible to simply watch. If we are alive and conscious, then we are affecting our world.
That excerpt was taking from Gregg Braden’s site, you can read more on his site, over the last few years I am going to make some connections for you randomly from the top of my head. Katrina and the Iraq War, Burma protests and the cyclone, Tibetan protests and the China earthquake, the Babri Masjid demolition and the Latur earthquake. Strange as it sounds, a man made calamity and natural one comes together quite often.
Here are twenty keys to conscious creations:
The Divine Matrix
The Divine Matrix is a book written by Gregg Braden, you can buy it on amazon, I have not read it but I heard a long and interesting radio interview where he talks about the Divine Matrix on youtube. The interview is extremely fast loading as its only got a couple of images and art by Alex Grey. Although there are eleven parts to it, you can find the links to all the eleven parts here.
