The Stream of Life

Like every great insight, the discovery that the universe has no fixed structure can seem frightening, but the uncertainty principle is just as much a creativity principle. Words like “void,” “nothingness,” and “interstellar space” do not have to generate fear; they are the creative stuff of everyday life.

I like the story of the three baseball umpires relaxing over beer one afternoon and comparing notes. One umpire says, “I calls ‘em as I sees ‘em.” The next umpire says, “I calls ‘em as they really are.” The third umpire says, “They ain’t nothin’ until I calls ‘em.”

The rishis promoted the creative act of seeing even higher than did the quantum physicist. First of all, they expanded the influence of the observer beyond the infinitesimal range of the quantum field, which is from 10 million to 100 million times smaller than an atom.

Controlled studies have shown that ordinary people actually do project their thoughts into nature’s workshop. Ordinary people can also broadcast messages to others telepathically, no matter how far away the receiving person is.

In some cases, it was observed that the relayed messages were received up to three days before they were sent. The startling implication is that the fixed boundaries of space-time are only conveniences of the mind, not absolutes.

In truth we are the three-dimensional movie. It is not separate from us but mingled with our mind-stuff, so that the only way to see it without being fooled is to see the seer.

Hi Gaby! -

" .... I am so surprised that a few of the 'regulars' these days seem so angry, and keep trying to prove anything you write, "wrong'"! Makes one wonder what is at the root, why visit these pages each and every day, if you obviously don't like anything you read?"

it's another angle of getting attention, and some actually enjoy being the spoiler - so, here's a great spot to just throw rotten tomatoes all day and nobody can stop them, and then they get their own rotten tomato group having fun with the other side of the play ground, and

here we are
life on planet earth being played out digitally

one another point, one which is more in the open minded to new concepts arena,...
Has anyone noticed that when you're in a deep relationship with someone, even when you don't talk for a while, you have a kind of telepathy with that person. - as if you can sense when they're about to connect with some news, or meaningful information,.... (???)

read the article and comments. sometimes articles are a little " over my head", as I did not go to college. nevertheless, they are are still insightful, thus I can draw my own conclusions.

Goodmorning Deepak, thank you for your post! I truly enjoyed it - as for the comments I am so surprised that a few of the 'regulars' these days seem so angry, and keep trying to prove anything you write, "wrong'"! Makes one wonder what is at the root, why visit these pages each and every day, if you obviously don't like anything you read? Funny, it's really beyond me!

Today, as I was reading this - I had just heard the news that at CERN they may have made 'mistake measuring' last year, when the 'particles appeared to be going 'faster' than light'. Now, new tests are planned to find out the 'truth of the matter'.:-) Exciting days indeed if you ask me!
Also, I for one believe in telepathy if only because I've experienced it, strange and weird 'coincedences'? I think not! And although I can't quote the many experiments that have been 'done' scientific' experiments - I believe the jury is pretty much in on telepathy as a 'proven quantity'.
But then it is as I call 'm isn't it?:-)

Food for thought once again, today and everyday, Deepak thank you! Namaste.
