Midpoints and the Pythagorean Theorem

Sometimes an answer seems too easy.

How can Prime Numbers and the Pythagorean Theorem be the missing truth we have all been looking for? A lot of work will need to be done for this to be regarded as true, but here’s an explanation of why we should do that work.

At the end of a decade’s thought, the solution to how two infinite points can resonate relies on treating them both as prime numbers whose midpoint can be deduced as the result of the Pythagorean Theorem. Of course we are not looking for the hypotnuese of a triangle, we simply want to know how two values can have a common denominator between them.

In this case it is not necessary to have a real number, only a way to understand how two infinite points derived from assumptions about the Void can interact, or resonate. How these points came to be in this situation is another story, suffice to say they exist and are in relationship, sharing a matching value, which in this case is “1”+ to equal a Prime number.

So why does the Pythagorean Theorem work for this? Well of course this is not geometry so it is probabley wrong to call it the Pythagorean Theorum, for this we can better call it the Pythagorean Tone. You see it is the midpoint harmonic of two spheres in resonance, each sphere is the product of a reduction algorithm which has entirely subdivided the space around a central point to account for it all within 1/1048512, which is the diameter of the last central sphere, and the cycle begins again using that value as “1”.

More than that the starting value of the reduction algorithm was probably more than that many iterations since it began.  We are not going to address this issue here. The main thing with this is to describe the idea that there is a way to reconcile the interaction of two infinite points by squaring two prime numbers and finding their square root to act as the midpoint value of them.

In another post on this site I explain the details of this as components of a Functional Cosmology. In that post I refer to this resonance as “Relationship”, signifying that is the third state of creation in which separation into individuated parts begins.  Although this began with the reducing points interacting with original substrate value (frequency potential) of the Intrusion into the Void, it has remained within all relationships since then.  Yes, all objects, such as molecules and larger are constantly in Resonance with one another.  Like interacts with like, point-to-point. each with a unique connection to the original Awareness.

Was Pythagoras telling us about the Music of the Spheres?

Etheric Evolution

[NOTE] This article articulates the evolution of complexity from the void due to the introduction of difference into the unchanging void, or the pure awareness of creation. The “difference” can be understood as consciousness expressing awareness of being in the void. Introducing a novel mathematical form, the SCIET, an acronym for Single Cycle Integrative Effect Topology, to explain how this expression of awareness affected the otherwise changeless void is the basis of the SCIET Functional Cosmology. SCIET Theory explains the consequences of the initial change in terms of rules affecting how the existence of polarity is distributed within a defined space. In this model the change becomes ever smaller and faster, eventually redefining itself in new sets until it reaches the limits of its origin, just as a pencil may be able define change on a massive piece of paper, but can no longer define it when the change is smaller than the tip of the pencil. Conceptually this can be overcome by beginning again with a new sheet of paper and continuing the definition of change. However, the change is not only by the size of the paper, but by the nature of the paper, in the case the originating consciousness that emerged into the unchanging awareness as a singular identity.

SCIET Functional Cosmology: The Stages of Creation

The  “Stages of Creation” presentation has three stages before the “big bang” Culmination event, and discusses three after it, including the next stages beyond  where we are today. Each stage exists as a consequence of the prior stages. The SCIET Universe is created by the Awareness defining the Creation Substance as a limited space and then expressing a Unitary Value to that edge from its center that began to descend. magnitude by magnitude until it reached the value of the Creation Substance where it Culminated into the third Unitary Value and began the Stage of Agreement . The SCIET Functional Cosmology is used to teach the concepts of SCIET Dynamics by introducing them in the context of their manifestation in nature with a brief explanation of why the concept is needed and how it contributes to the creation. The Creation is an evolutionary platform and the Cosmology is the natural way to understand its complex progression.

Earlier versions of this web site have relied on the use of applications, examples of how SCIET Dynamics explains everyday activities, to convey the foundation ideas.  The Cosmology provides a platform for comprehension while the Applications enable recognition from experience. Spacimetrics addresses the ability to calculate SCIET Resonance Maps as a third platform for understanding SCIET Dynamics. Teaching and learning where we have come from and how things work while developing practical economic, social and spiritual benefits is the three part approach on this site.

The SCIET is the underlying pattern of creation. It is rooted in natural truths, abstractions that are true both in nature and mathematics.  Those natural truths are presented here in a cosmological progression,  the Stages of Creation. This means that we build a universe around the assumption that all points in space are definable as SCIETs and that the Universe evolved in that context. How these ideas may impact other areas of study is briefly discussed in the SCIET Applications section.

Each stage of creation can be understood in the context of the SCIET and its Dynamics.  Any definable location in space is a SCIET and all intersections are expressible as SCIETs. The Harmonic Receptive Reduction algorithm of the SCIET continually reduces into smaller SCIETs until the original measure seems to vanish into the space of itself.  It is the notion that all points in space are definable as SCIETs that makes this possible.

Understanding the conditions before matter formed has necessitated the development of a consistent approach to the Harmonic Receptive Reduction algorithm of SCIET Dynamics. Backward chaining the ideas of the SCIET to before the first action leads to the idea of SCIET Frequency Potential Levels as the basis for Awareness and the Creation Substance with Limitation thus enabling individuation, resonance and the beginning of Relationship setting the stage for Culmination and the formation of matter.

Stage of the Awareness

Awareness is the highest frequency potential. It is so fast that it is unlimited and thus needs the limitations of the slower Creation Substance to project intention into.  It is an order of magnitude faster and smaller than the Creation Substance. Awareness is unlimited, its receptive frequency potential is unlimited, so the role of the creation substance is to enable the creation of limitation and consequently, resonance within the creation substance.


The Limitless Nature of the Awareness is the highest frequency potential in the universe. It is so fast that it is unlimited and thus needs the limitations of the slower Creation Substance to project intention into.  It is an order of manitude faster and smaller than the Creation Substance. Awareness is unlimited, its receptive frequency potential is unlimited, so the role of the Creation Substance is to enable the creation of Limitation and consequently, resonance within the creation substance.

Unity enables all cycles to reestablish their base value in harmony with the Universe.

The frequencies of the Agreement transition into the Creation Substance unifies the molecular values with the Universe.

Each cycle returns to the Infinitesimal Substrate where the values expressed during the cycle are passed into the Infinitesimal Substrate. Each cycle begins from the IS they enter a state of universal harmony.

Each cycle begins and ends with the Infinitesimal Substrate,

Unity is achieved through movement toward the void, taking place in a series of increments that, although ever smaller, are still manifest. These infinitesimal increments make it possible to diffuse all incoming information throughout the universe at unitary values appearing to be faster than “light”. These values (the infinitesimal substrate) are present when the Primary Value of any SCIET is established, or emerges from the Void.

The Void is a relative concept. It is impossible for us to say what the void is capable of since to our universe it is an undefinable condition of sameness. Our universe emerged from the Void and that same Void terminates our Universe at its largest and smallest dimensions.

All cycles are synchronous to the Universe. For every value or cycle there is a Universal Pulse, meaning that everywhere in the universe that the value exists, it is entering Unity at the same time.

The Pulse is universal and every value is occurring in harmony with it. They are all entering Unity or Universal stasis at once. Thus change from throughout the Universe is joined into a single thought or energy state at the end of each Pulse and each new cycle emerges from Unity into a state of Universal Harmony. Since each cycle terminates into the Infinitesimal Substrate, it harmonizes with all the other cycles occurring during the same Pulse.The Pulse is very important to understanding the twelve angularities of the SCIET.

Each angularityexists in the context of larger systems that share that angularity. During the pulse into Unity all the systems that go into unity at that moment harmonize or share information/energy. Sharing not only the moment but also the angular polarity makes the Unity more powerful. This is the source of the similarity between the astrological houses and signs which are references to each persons and the solar system’s angularities.

The Yin Yang symbol of the ancient Chinese provides insight regarding the nature of the pulse. The fullness of each phase is seen to be of equal duration and intensity in the symbol, but understanding the simultaneous nature of many cycles and the fact that they are all able to maintain their own Pulse makes the Yin Yang clarity hard to achieve in practice. Like the Platonic Solids it is a teaching tool with a pure truth underlying it.

This idea is most easily understood through Set Theory. Each value is part of a set and the set is universal, existing everywhere as a potential to enter the unity simultaneously. During the transition into the void the set functions as a unit to dissipate the accumulated information/energy from each individual cycle. Origination from the Infinitesimal Substrate occurs on a foundation of the fusion in the Infinitesimal Substrate. Thus a Universal Pulse distributes the intrinsic knowledge of the universe to each new cycle or SCIET. The Pulse is the basis for the Unity Principle.

“At the beginning of each and every cycle the outreach establishes a match and linear relationship between the center and the edge that subdivides into equidistant parts until it reaches a value equal to the minimum originating part.”

The key to doing this is the SCIET, a kind of mathematical atom. It defines a process within a specific space that begins with an act of awareness, the recognition that there is another place or point in space. The simple act of awareness is the beginning of the universe. Using the SCIET we can build a model of change that replicates creation.

The act of awareness can be described by a line drawn between two points, followed by a series of other lines based on the first one, each originating from the same point until all the space surrounding that point is defined by the first line and its parts. The lines between the lines are also based on the original base line or SCIET Line. All points in space do this. All that is required is for them to be defined through relationship to something else that exists.

The first stage of creation defines all the space relative to a central point, followed by all defined points reacting to each other in a continuous reaction of creation.Each cycle begins by defining a new value that is subdevided into the space surrounding the center and as it subdivides into equal parts does so in a manner that allows each point to maintain its own identity, to have a unique but harmonic part in the whole at all times.

Another way to look at it is to imagine that the smallest center point of the SCIET is a pixel, in which case the computer display would need to be 1214 feet by 1214 feet square. This is a SCIET Magnitude.

The SCIET is derived from the tetrahedral form because it is able to define space using a single value away from the center, but it is also true that any affect would stimulate the SCIET into existanc becaue it is the default fracture pattern of the Creation Substance

The SCIET Line creates a starting set of four equidistant points that then react to one another to create the stable form of the SCIET, which is the mathematical atom. It represents three levels of harmonic space reacting to itself. Each tetrahedral form (Tetron) has two levels and the grouping of them into a SCIET of twenty creates a third level harmonic that is stable

Subdivision in space is a primary assumption in SCIET Dynamics. The tetrons each defining a distance from the center in two ways, the edge and center.

The Capacitance Lattice originates with the SCIET Orbital Return from all the matter in direct line-of-sight.  SCIET Spheres are the result of the orbital return, with the smallest fastest frequencies creating proton shells and the proton shells themselves providing the orbital return that creates electrons.

While resonance insists upon the even subdivision of space the growth of living bodies uses the phi ratio.

The role of Phi in the subdivision of space and nature

In SCIET Theory the Phi ratio is seen in the tetron as part of the SCIET.  The angle of the SCIET center to the tetron center creates a phi relationship between the surface planes of the  Icosahedral and Dodecahedral forms.

The three forms above illustrate the origin of the Phi ratio in nature. Each SCIET contains a series of resonant points defined approximately by the tetron resonance. On the left is a diagram of the Phi ratio as it originates in the tetron. and on the right is the Icosahedral structure of the twenty tetrons together on a central point with the Dodecahedral form created by connecting their midpoints

The Stage of the Creation Substance (source field, void, creation substance)

Awareness in the Creation Substance leads to the recognition of other, or the creation of relationship in the creation substance. The Awareness’ magnitude higher rate of change enables it to inhabit the larger slower SCIET values of the creation substance and express intention, ordering the magnitude slower creation substance with a SCIETline of the Awareness between two locations within the Creation Substance.

Removing all matter from space would leave only the creation substance without the disturbance of matter and radiation. Although modern astrophysics calls it the void, but now considers that it must be teeming with zero point energy. However, for our purposes we generalize that the qualities of the creation substance can be seen by how it expresses the properties of gravity, radiation and mind.

Creation Substance

Stage of Relationship

Relationship is the underlying pattern of space established by the intention of the Awareness. The space defines itself using the SCIET Dynamic to create tracks of potential within the Creation Substance. During the Relationship Stage all the volume of affected Creation Substance is processed so that every location is addressable. In essence the intention expressed subdivides to its smallest part before achieving culmination.

Modern technology has a good analogy to this situation. Computer hard drives are manufactured using a coating of magnetic particles on the surface of spinning disks which are “written” on by tiny electromagnetic needles that cover the surface with small changes to enable the read/write function. This is called formatting and it is not data, but the preparation of the media to handle data, to make it relate to itself in an organized way.

Since Awareness permeates the volume of the Creation Substance, the formatting defines Integrated Awarenesses known in spirituality as the Angelic Hierarchy, with each subdivision resulting in an individuated, evolving awareness.

Each level of the Hierarchy represents a level of subdivision within the Creation Substance until the Culmination when all the individuated parts begin to exchange resonance using the Combinatory Principle. As a result of this each individuated value is surrounded by Capacitance Layers related to system-wide shared values.


Culmination (Big Bang boundary event)

Culmination in a system is related to the idea of Limitation in the Creation itself. The boundary or transition event of the Harmonic Fractional Receptive Reduction process that results in the transfer of all information from the Unitary Value to the Point of Magnitude A created system has a beginning and the Culmination occurs when the initial defined value subdivides to a value equal to the smallest, fastest value possible in that SCIET range. The resulting value is individuated and becomes resonant within the frequency values defined by the prior subdivisions.

During the creation the Culmination resulted in the formation of protons based on the smallest and fastest resonant values, which remain in continuous resonant relationship to the present.

In the context of SCIET Culmination the “big bang” may be the more easily understood as a kind of cosmic “dew” that occured when two dynamic systems achieved a certain mutual balance. In the asmosphere dew is an energy versus density equation, which also describes the convergence of the reducing Unitary Value (the energy) and the Frequency Potential Levels of the Creation Substance (the density), an event when the Reduction met the

The 7.35 Centimeter Cosmic Background Radiation is considered to be a remnant of the big bang, evidence of a Univers-wide event related to that value.. In SCIET Dynamics it is basis of the Culmination, being the value that resulted from the intersection of energy and density that began the Third SCIET and Resonance Return.

Culmination occurs in all created systems and is particularly noteworthy in the nervous system where it distributes new information to all cells and governs all the transitions between value ranges. It is basis of the holographic effect when combined with Agreement and Memory.

When a soap bubble bursts it immediately culminates into its receptive reduction values, with the droplets in the mist created by the burst being tiny bubbles rather than droplets of water.


Stage of the Agreement

The culmination allowed a new range of values related to the creation of protons and electrons, which are the integration of the first three stages into a new individualized parts that work with the Awareness in the Creation Substance with Relationship.


Stage of Memory

All of the evolved life forms are created in the Stage of Memory that in its higher frequencies it is known as mind and correlates to the Fourth Dimension


Stage of Consciousness

When Memory is fully evolved it combines with Agreement or natural law to form the Stage of Consciousness. The concept of the “fifth dimension” being discussed in popular culture today is rooted in this Consciousness Stage of evolutionary development. In practical terms the third dimension “Agreement or natural law” compounds with the fourth stage of memory where the material structures are the armatures for the evolving resonant memory of life into a dimension of pure consciousness.

Current digital technology has a useful corollary to this. The evolution of computers began with hardware and as software was added to it, the functionality increased dramatically. The computer had a variety of components, each manufactured separately to use the digital codes of the software programs. All of these components had processing speeds built in to them, and combining components required that all could match the speed of the central processor, since the system could not go any faster than its slowest part. Each of the parts was just a tool for handling the software coding, it would recieve the code, do its thing and deliver it to the next component.

As processors became faster and more stable, it became possible to use them for solid state memory, long used for cacheing the programs results, the Random Access Memory became faster and cheaper until networks began to use them to store frequently used files instead of hard drives. The Internet developed services that maintained racks of cacheing computers just so people could download files quicklym since they could avoid the mechanical action of the spinning disks and their complex sectoring of data. The success of these systems led to the next generation of services using even faster RAM, the virtual server.

Now it is possible to have all of your website’s data, programs and content entirely within a virtual space. No longer are components required, no more hardware is required because the RAM can recreate the entire system as software in a virtual space.  This advance has had enormous benefits to the entire environment of computing, now entire websites can be duplicated and installed on other ram installations around the world, making capacity issues a thing of the past.

Now compare this to the evolved life forms of the third dimension. The code or program needed for life is attached to a strand of DNA. That strand has the information needed to build the hardware to run the program. It is like a automated factory about how to use readily available components to build the computer needed to run the main program, its real purpose for existing.

While it is not widely known to the population, the frequency of the planet in the third dimension is like the slow processing speeds of hardware computers. In order to run the program, hardware is required.  As the processing speed of the space that the planet is in increases, it becomes possible for the program to run without hardware, the space itself becomes the RAM needed to run the living systems that now depend on the use of assemblies of molecules, the hardware of life.

The astral body has long been known as a way to exist in space outside of the flesh and bones body, but it requires a frequency feed, (the silver cord) from the body to maintain itself in the space of the planet.

Life has always created its own high frequencies. What is currently known as ORMUS, White Powder of Gold, Manna, Shew Bread, the Philosophers Stone and more recently as Tachyons, have all depended on the character of a few elements to become superconductive be being physically deformed to cause the end valances to connect, which causes them to square the frequency potential.  This very high frequency is the basis of the living body’s ability to communicate and store information throughout its frequency field, which is related to the frequency at the center of the DNA molecule. All life utilizes this to communicate.

The planet is now entering a stage wherein the resident frequencies are about to go virtual for the existence of life.

The change is not just about raising our existing frequency, but about an exponential increase in the ability of the space to hold information. There is talk of a “Solar Flash” happening that will “change everything”, and this is about to happen according to those who have devoted their lives to learning about it.

In the explanation here about Energetic Astrology, this is covered as a new causal frequency, which is the base frequency of the space that our solar system exists within.  In this way of understanding our world, we can realize that this will make our entire reality go “virtual” and the ability to program space will be natural and universal.

It also will mean that those with erroneous ideas about how things work will experience meltdowns, as their programming creates fatal conflicts within the interactive network. It will no longer be possible to isolate failed ideas or ways of thinking, it would be like trying to run an Apple II on a virtual system, the content and components are incompatible.

Stephen Hawking Reveals What Existed Before the Big Bang

Stephen Hawking Reveals What Existed Before the Big Bang

In an interview with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, iconic physicist Stephen Hawking recently revealed what he believes existed prior to the Big Bang.

 “Nothing was around,” said Hawking, who fortunately elaborated on this point. “The Euclidean space-time is a closed surface without end, like the surface of the Earth,” said Hawking, referring to the four-dimensional conceptual model that incorporates the three dimensions of space with time. “One can regard imaginary and real time as beginning at the South Pole, which is a smooth point of space-time where the normal laws of physics hold. There is nothing south of the South Pole so there was nothing around before the Big Bang.” At least, there was nothing around that humans can currently experience or conceptualize.

Hawking has offered some pessimistic assessments of the near-future of our planet. He predicts that the Earth will become a ball of fire within the next 600 years while also warning humanity that we have less than a century to leave Earth before it becomes uninhabitable. He also warned about the existential dangers of artificial intelligence. “Computers can, in theory, emulate human intelligence, and exceed it,” he said in 2017. “Success in creating effective AI, could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. Or the worst. We just don’t know. So we cannot know if we will be infinitely helped by AI, or ignored by it and side-lined, or conceivably destroyed by it.”

Consciousness Creates Reality

“Consciousness creates reality”
Physicists admit the Universe is immaterial, mental, and spiritual

“Consciousness creates reality.” This statement has changed the scientific and medical landscape, and alternative media outlets around the world have and continue to explore its meaning and implications for out future. Countless scientists study this idea and how it might be correlated with the nature of our reality.

It raises the question, what is consciousness?

Consciousness includes a number of things. It’s how we perceive our world, it’s our thoughts and intentions, it’s being aware, and so more.

“Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking in the radio for the announcer.”
 Nasseim Haramein, Director of Research for the Resonance Project

“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.”
–  Max Planck, the theoretical physicist who originated quantum theory, which won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918

“It was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.”
– Eugene Wigner, theoretical physicist and mathematician

The notion that “consciousness creates reality” raises so many questions. Does this mean we as individuals (and on a collective level, as one human race) can shape and create whatever reality we’d like for ourselves? Does it mean we can manifest a certain lifestyle, and attract certain experiences? Does it happen instantly? Does it take time? How do we do it?

We know so little still. Although we might not be able to answer these questions with scientific certainty, we do know that yes, a correlation between consciousness and our physical material world does indeed exist in some way. The extent of that correlation is still poorly understood, but we know it’s there, and we know it must have some sort of significance.

According to RC Henry, a professor of physics and astronomy at Johns Hopkins University, in a 2005 essay:

A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. 

Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.

The Science Behind the Statement “Consciousness Creates Reality”

The quantum double slit experiment is one way we can see how consciousness affects the physical material world. One potential revelation of this experience is that “the observer creates the reality.” A paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Physics Essays by Dean Radin, PhD, explains how this experiment has been used multiple times to explore the role of consciousness in shaping the nature of physical reality.

In this experiment, scientists use a double-slit optical system to test the possible role of consciousness in the collapse of the quantum wave-function. They had predicted the ratio of the interference pattern’s double slit spectral power to its single slit spectral power would decrease when attention was focused toward the double slit as compared to away from it, yet instead foundthat factors associated with consciousness “significantly” correlated in predicted ways with perturbations in the double slit interference pattern. In other words, scientists affected the results of the experiment just by observing it.

“Observation not only disturbs what has to be measured, they produce it. We compel the electron to assume a definite position. We ourselves produce the results of the measurement.”

Although this is one of the most popular experiments used to posit the connection between consciousness and physical reality, there are several other  studies that clearly show that consciousness, or factors that are associated with consciousness, directly affect our reality. A number of experiments in the field of parapsychology have also demonstrated this.

Sure, we might not understand the extent of this connection, and in most cases scientists can’t even explain it. However they are, and have been observed time and time again.

Below is a video demonstration from the film What The Bleep Do We Know.

 Other examples we’ve written about include government sponsored psychokinesis experiments, the global consciousness experiment, intelligence agency remote viewing experiments, thoughts and intentions altering the structure of water, the placebo effect, teleportation studies, and more. You can find more details about those specific experiments here.

How We Can Incorporate This Information Into Our Lives and Use Consciousness to Transform the World

Change requires action, but the place within ourselves that we take action from makes a big difference in the outcome.

Modern day science, especially quantum physics, has been catching up to ancient mysticism and concepts deeply ingrained in various cultures throughout the ancient world. One great example of this is the fact that everything is energy, and nothing is solid. You can read more about that here.

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.”
– Gautama Buddha

“Broadly speaking, although there are some differences, I think Buddhist philosophy and Quantum Mechanics can shake hands on their view of the world. We can see in these great examples the fruits of human thinking. Regardless of the admiration we feel for these great thinkers, we should not lose sight of the fact that they were human beings just as we are.”
– Dalai Lama (source)

A great example of quantum physics meeting ancient wisdom can be seen in the fact that Nikola Tesla was influenced by Vedic philosophy when pondering his ideas of zero point energy. You can read more about that here.

So why is this relevant? Because new physics is finally discovering that the observer shapes the reality. The way we think and perceive could significantly impact our lives and the world around us.

“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
– Unknown

If we look at the world and examine it on a collective level, what do we see? How do we perceive it? Right now, the masses believe a ‘normal life’ means going to school, paying bills, raising a family, and finding a ‘job’ within the current paradigm to support yourself. Many people on the planet are not resonating with this experience, however. They want change. We’ve been repeating and perceiving our reality this way for a very long time, as though we are drones trained to accept things the way they are; to not question what is happening in our world and to continue on with the status quo, only caring for ourselves and our own lives. As Noam Chomsky would say, our consent has been manufactured. If we continue down this path and continue to perceive and view reality as “this is just the way it is,” we will, in essence, prolong that type of existence and experience for the human race without ever changing it.

In order to create and manifest a new reality for ourselves, our thought patterns and the way we perceive reality must change. What changes the way we perceive reality? Information. When new information emerges it changes the way we look at things and, as a result, our reality changes too, and we begin to manifest a new experience and open our minds to a broader view of reality.

What’s also important about teachings from new physics is that, if consciousness creates reality, that means change starts within. It starts with the way in which we are observing the outer world from our inner world. This touches on the earlier point of how we perceive our reality. Our perception of the external world might very well be a reflection of our inner world, our inner state of being. So ask yourself, are you happy? Are you observing, perceiving, and acting from a place of love? Or from a place of hate or anger? All of these factors are associated with our consciousness and observation; the one (or the many) who are doing the “observing” might significantly impact the type of physical world the human race manifests for itself.

What do you think?

We are indeed the observers, and we can create change and break patterns to open up new possibilities, all through the way in which we observe ourselves, others, and the world around us.

I believe that the human race is in the process of waking up to a number of different things at once, and as a result, the way we perceive and “observe” the world around us (on a mass scale) is shifting drastically. So if you want to help change the world, change the way you look at things, and the things you look at will change.

There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement.” 

Lord Kelvin made this statement in 1900, and was proven wrong only five years later when Einstein published his paper on special relativity. The new theories proposed by Einstein challenged the current framework of understanding and forced the scientific community to consider new ideas about our world. This stands as a great example of how things that once were regarded as truth can and do change.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
– Mahatma Ghandi

“Lord Kelvin’s statements bares with it the voice of paradigms past. . . . We knew that the Earth was flat, we knew that we were the centre of the universe, and we knew that a manmade heavier-than-air piece of machinery could not take flight. Through all stages of human history, intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing or suppressing elements of reality that simply didn’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge. Are we really any different today? Have we really changed our acceptance towards things that won’t fit the frame? Maybe there are concepts of our reality we have yet to understand, and if we open our eyes maybe we will see that something significant has been overlooked.”

The Case Against Dark Matter

The Case Against Dark Matter

A proposed theory of gravity does away with dark matter, even as new astrophysical findings challenge the need for galaxies full of the invisible mystery particles.

 For 80 years, scientists have puzzled over the way galaxies and other cosmic structures appear to gravitate toward something they cannot see. This hypothetical “dark matter” seems to outweigh all visible matter by a startling ratio of five to one, suggesting that we barely know our own universe. Thousands of physicists are doggedly searching for these invisible particles.

But the dark matter hypothesis assumes scientists know how matter in the sky ought to move in the first place. This month, a series of developments has revived a long-disfavored argument that dark matter doesn’t exist after all. In this view, no missing matter is needed to explain the errant motions of the heavenly bodies; rather, on cosmic scales, gravity itself works in a different way than either Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein predicted.

Instead of hordes of invisible particles, “dark matter is an interplay between ordinary matter and dark energy,” Verlinde said.

To make his case, Verlinde has adopted a radical perspective on the origin of gravity that is currently in vogue among leading theoretical physicists. Einstein defined gravity as the effect of curves in space-time created by the presence of matter. According to the new approach, gravity is an emergent phenomenon. Space-time and the matter within it are treated as a hologram that arises from an underlying network of quantum bits (called “qubits”), much as the three-dimensional environment of a computer game is encoded in classical bits on a silicon chip. Working within this framework, Verlinde traces dark energy to a property of these underlying qubits that supposedly encode the universe. On large scales in the hologram, he argues, dark energy interacts with matter in just the right way to create the illusion of dark matter.

In his calculations, Verlinde rediscovered the equations of “modified Newtonian dynamics,” or MOND. This 30-year-old theory makes an ad hoc tweak to the famous “inverse-square” law of gravity in Newton’s and Einstein’s theories in order to explain some of the phenomena attributed to dark matter. That this ugly fix works at all has long puzzled physicists. “I have a way of understanding the MOND success from a more fundamental perspective,” Verlinde said.

Many experts have called Verlinde’s paper compelling but hard to follow. While it remains to be seen whether his arguments will hold up to scrutiny, the timing is fortuitous. In a new analysis of galaxiespublished on Nov. 9 in Physical Review Letters, three astrophysicists led by Stacy McGaugh of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, have strengthened MOND’s case against dark matter.

The researchers analyzed a diverse set of 153 galaxies, and for each one they compared the rotation speed of visible matter at any given distance from the galaxy’s center with the amount of visible matter contained within that galactic radius. Remarkably, these two variables were tightly linked in all the galaxies by a universal law, dubbed the “radial acceleration relation.” This makes perfect sense in the MOND paradigm, since visible matter is the exclusive source of the gravity driving the galaxy’s rotation (even if that gravity does not take the form prescribed by Newton or Einstein). With such a tight relationship between gravity felt by visible matter and gravity given by visible matter, there would seem to be no room, or need, for dark matter.

Even as dark matter proponents rise to its defense, a third challenge has materialized. In new research that has been presented at seminars and is under review by the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, a team of Dutch astronomers have conducted what they call the first test of Verlinde’s theory: In comparing his formulas to data from more than 30,000 galaxies, Margot Brouwer of Leiden University in the Netherlands and her colleagues found that Verlinde correctly predicts the gravitational distortion or “lensing” of light from the galaxies — another phenomenon that is normally attributed to dark matter. This is somewhat to be expected, as MOND’s original developer, the Israeli astrophysicist Mordehai Milgrom, showed years ago that MOND accounts for gravitational lensing data. Verlinde’s theory will need to succeed at reproducing dark matter phenomena in cases where the old MOND failed.

Kathryn Zurek, a dark matter theorist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, said Verlinde’s proposal at least demonstrates how something like MOND might be right after all. “One of the challenges with modified gravity is that there was no sensible theory that gives rise to this behavior,” she said. “If [Verlinde’s] paper ends up giving that framework, then that by itself could be enough to breathe more life into looking at [MOND] more seriously.”

The New MOND

In Newton’s and Einstein’s theories, the gravitational attraction of a massive object drops in proportion to the square of the distance away from it. This means stars orbiting around a galaxy should feel less gravitational pull — and orbit more slowly — the farther they are from the galactic center. Stars’ velocities do drop as predicted by the inverse-square law in the inner galaxy, but instead of continuing to drop as they get farther away, their velocities level off beyond a certain point. The “flattening” of galaxy rotation speeds, discovered by the astronomer Vera Rubin in the 1970s, is widely considered to be Exhibit A in the case for dark matter — explained, in that paradigm, by dark matter clouds or “halos” that surround galaxies and give an extra gravitational acceleration to their outlying stars.

Searches for dark matter particles have proliferated — with hypothetical “weakly interacting massive particles” (WIMPs) and lighter-weight “axions” serving as prime candidates — but so far, experiments have found nothing.

Meanwhile, in the 1970s and 1980s, some researchers, including Milgrom, took a different tack. Many early attempts at tweaking gravity were easy to rule out, but Milgrom found a winning formula: When the gravitational acceleration felt by a star drops below a certain level — precisely 0.00000000012 meters per second per second, or 100 billion times weaker than we feel on the surface of the Earth — he postulated that gravity somehow switches from an inverse-square law to something close to an inverse-distance law. “There’s this magic scale,” McGaugh said. “Above this scale, everything is normal and Newtonian. Below this scale is where things get strange. But the theory does not really specify how you get from one regime to the other.”

Physicists do not like magic; when other cosmological observations seemed far easier to explain with dark matter than with MOND, they left the approach for dead. Verlinde’s theory revitalizes MOND by attempting to reveal the method behind the magic.

Verlinde, ruddy and fluffy-haired at 54 and lauded for highly technical string theory calculations, first jotted down a back-of-the-envelope version of his idea in 2010. It built on a famous paper he had written months earlier, in which he boldly declared that gravity does not really exist. By weaving together numerous concepts and conjectures at the vanguard of physics, he had concluded that gravity is an emergent thermodynamic effect, related to increasing entropy (or disorder). Then, as now, experts were uncertain what to make of the paper, though it inspired fruitful discussions.

The particular brand of emergent gravity in Verlinde’s paper turned out not to be quite right, but he was tapping into the same intuition that led other theorists to develop the modern holographic description of emergent gravity and space-time — an approach that Verlinde has now absorbed into his new work.

In this framework, bendy, curvy space-time and everything in it is a geometric representation of pure quantum information — that is, data stored in qubits. Unlike classical bits, qubits can exist simultaneously in two states (0 and 1) with varying degrees of probability, and they become “entangled” with each other, such that the state of one qubit determines the state of the other, and vice versa, no matter how far apart they are. Physicists have begun to work out the rules by which the entanglement structure of qubits mathematically translates into an associated space-time geometry. An array of qubits entangled with their nearest neighbors might encode flat space, for instance, while more complicated patterns of entanglement give rise to matter particles such as quarks and electrons, whose mass causes the space-time to be curved, producing gravity. “The best way we understand quantum gravity currently is this holographic approach,” said Mark Van Raamsdonk, a physicist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver who has done influential work on the subject.

The mathematical translations are rapidly being worked out for holographic universes with an Escher-esque space-time geometry known as anti-de Sitter (AdS) space, but universes like ours, which have de Sitter geometries, have proved far more difficult. In his new paper, Verlinde speculates that it’s exactly the de Sitter property of our native space-time that leads to the dark matter illusion.

De Sitter space-times like ours stretch as you look far into the distance. For this to happen, space-time must be infused with a tiny amount of background energy — often called dark energy — which drives space-time apart from itself. Verlinde models dark energy as a thermal energy, as if our universe has been heated to an excited state. (AdS space, by contrast, is like a system in its ground state.) Verlinde associates this thermal energy with long-range entanglement between the underlying qubits, as if they have been shaken up, driving entangled pairs far apart. He argues that this long-range entanglement is disrupted by the presence of matter, which essentially removes dark energy from the region of space-time that it occupied. The dark energy then tries to move back into this space, exerting a kind of elastic response on the matter that is equivalent to a gravitational attraction.

Because of the long-range nature of the entanglement, the elastic response becomes increasingly important in larger volumes of space-time. Verlinde calculates that it will cause galaxy rotation curves to start deviating from Newton’s inverse-square law at exactly the magic acceleration scale pinpointed by Milgrom in his original MOND theory.

Van Raamsdonk calls Verlinde’s idea “definitely an important direction.” But he says it’s too soon to tell whether everything in the paper — which draws from quantum information theory, thermodynamics, condensed matter physics, holography and astrophysics — hangs together. Either way, Van Raamsdonk said, “I do find the premise interesting, and feel like the effort to understand whether something like that could be right could be enlightening.”

One problem, said Brian Swingle of Harvard and Brandeis universities, who also works in holography, is that Verlinde lacks a concrete model universe like the ones researchers can construct in AdS space, giving him more wiggle room for making unproven speculations. “To be fair, we’ve gotten further by working in a more limited context, one which is less relevant for our own gravitational universe,” Swingle said, referring to work in AdS space. “We do need to address universes more like our own, so I hold out some hope that his new paper will provide some additional clues or ideas going forward.”

The Case for Dark Matter

Verlinde could be capturing the zeitgeist the way his 2010 entropic-gravity paper did. Or he could be flat-out wrong. The question is whether his new and improved MOND can reproduce phenomena that foiled the old MOND and bolstered belief in dark matter.

One such phenomenon is the Bullet cluster, a galaxy cluster in the process of colliding with another. The visible matter in the two clusters crashes together, but gravitational lensing suggests that a large amount of dark matter, which does not interact with visible matter, has passed right through the crash site. Some physicists consider this indisputable proof of dark matter. However, Verlinde thinks his theory will be able to handle the Bullet cluster observations just fine. He says dark energy’s gravitational effect is embedded in space-time and is less deformable than matter itself, which would have allowed the two to separate during the cluster collision.

But the crowning achievement for Verlinde’s theory would be to account for the suspected imprints of dark matter in the cosmic microwave background (CMB), ancient light that offers a snapshot of the infant universe. The snapshot reveals the way matter at the time repeatedly contracted due to its gravitational attraction and then expanded due to self-collisions, producing a series of peaks and troughs in the CMB data. Because dark matter does not interact, it would only have contracted without ever expanding, and this would modulate the amplitudes of the CMB peaks in exactly the way that scientists observe. One of the biggest strikes against the old MOND was its failure to predict this modulation and match the peaks’ amplitudes. Verlinde expects that his version will work — once again, because matter and the gravitational effect of dark energy can separate from each other and exhibit different behaviors. “Having said this,” he said, “I have not calculated this all through.”

While Verlinde confronts these and a handful of other challenges, proponents of the dark matter hypothesis have some explaining of their own to do when it comes to McGaugh and his colleagues’ recent findings about the universal relationship between galaxy rotation speeds and their visible matter content.

In October, responding to a preprint of the paper by McGaugh and his colleagues, two teams of astrophysicists independently argued that the dark matter hypothesis can account for the observations. They say the amount of dark matter in a galaxy’s halo would have precisely determined the amount of visible matter the galaxy ended up with when it formed. In that case, galaxies’ rotation speeds, even though they’re set by dark matter and visible matter combined, will exactly correlate with either their dark matter content or their visible matter content (since the two are not independent). However, computer simulations of galaxy formation do not currently indicate that galaxies’ dark and visible matter contents will always track each other. Experts are busy tweaking the simulations, but Arthur Kosowsky of the University of Pittsburgh, one of the researchers, working on them, says it’s too early to tell if the simulations will be able to match all 153 examples of the universal law in McGaugh and his colleagues’ galaxy data set. If not, then the standard dark matter paradigm is in big trouble. “Obviously this is something that the community needs to look at more carefully,” Zurek said.

Even if the simulations can be made to match the data, McGaugh, for one, considers it an implausible coincidence that dark matter and the visible matter would conspire to exactly mimic the predictions of MOND at every location in every galaxy. “If somebody were to come to you and say, ‘The solar system doesn’t work on an inverse-square law, really it’s an inverse-cube law, but there’s dark matter that’s arranged just so that it always looks inverse-square,’ you would say that person is insane,” he said. “But that’s basically what we’re asking to be the case with dark matter here.”

Given the considerable indirect evidence and near consensus among physicists that dark matter exists, it still probably does, Zurek said. “That said, you should always check that you’re not on a bandwagon,” she added. “Even though this paradigm explains everything, you should always check that there isn’t something else going on.”

Scientists Find Fractal Patterns and Golden Ratio Pulses in Stars

A recent article in Scientific American has reported the discovery that fractal patterns and the golden ratio have been discovered in outer space for the very first time. Researchers from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa have been studying a specific kind of stars called RR Lyrae variables using the Kepler Space Telescope. Unlike normal stars, they expand and contract, causing their brightness to adjust dramatically, and in so doing create pulsations.

But the pulsations aren’t random or arbitrary.  They are pulsating in accordance with the golden mean.  We have seen the golden ratio turn up in nature all the time, but this is the first time it has ever been identified in space.

“Unlike our Sun, RR Lyrae stars shrink and swell, causing their temperatures and brightness to rhythmically change like the frequencies or notes in a song,” Dr Lindner, the lead Researcher, explained. It’s the ratio between this swelling and shrinking that is so important.

They have been studying the pulsations of these stars, and several of them have been pulsating frequencies nearly identical to the Golden Ratio. These specific stars are called “Golden RR Lyrae Variables.”

“We call these stars ‘golden’ because the ratio of two of their frequency components is near the golden mean, which is an irrational number famous in art, architecture, and mathematics,” Dr Lindner said.

The Golden Mean

The Golden Mean or Ratio, (1.61803398875…) is a pattern that is absolutely essential to the understanding of nature, as its found in everything from sunflowers, to succulents, to sea shells, and is commonly referred to in the study of Sacred Geometry.

The Golden Ratio was essential to Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, can be found in studying the Pyramids of Egypt, the Parthenon, and several researches believe they have correlated it to the understanding of the human genome and unlocking the codes in our DNA.

The Golden Ratio or Divine Proportion, when plotted numerically, creates a sequence that emerges what we can see as a Fractal Pattern.  Metaphysicians and Modern Physicians for the last 15-years have been avidly suggesting that the study of fractal patterns can lead us to a greater understanding of the Universe, and a Unified Field within it that very likely may be at play in structuring the Universe.

“The golden stars are actually the first examples outside of a laboratory of what’s called “strange nonchaotic dynamics.” The “strange” here refers to a fractal pattern, and nonchaotic means the pattern is orderly, rather than random. Most fractal patterns in nature, such as weather, are chaotic, so this aspect of the variable stars came as a surprise.” Reported an article in Scientific American.

These RR Lyrae variable stars are at their youngest over 10 billion years old and their brightness can vary by 200 percent over half a day. This makes it a bit challenging to study from Earth due to our day-night cycle. It’s the variation itself causing this mathematical phenomenon.

Plato had theorized that the Universe as a whole is simply a resonance of the “Music or Harmony of the Spheres.” This new study may provide deeper insights to pairing the Philosophies & Spiritual Sciences offered throughout the ages with modern Astronomy, and how we may understand the underlying elegance of nature as a whole.

While some of these stars pulsate with a single frequency, observations confirm that others pulsate with multiple frequencies.

“Just as flamboyant rock stars deliver pulsating rhythmic beats under their song melodies, so, too, do these variable stars,” said Dr Lindner.
