The Illusion of Matter: Our Physical Material World Isn’t Really Physical At All

Niels Bohr, a Danish Physicist who made significant contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory once said: “if quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.” Quantum physics has left scientists all over the world baffled, especially with the discovery that our physical material reality, isn’t really physical at all. “Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” It seems philosophers of our ancient past were right, our senses really do deceive us.

Again, our physical material reality really ISN’T physical at all. The meaning, significance and implications of these findings within our quantum world have led to a plethora of ideas and theories, some of which lay inside the label of “pseudo-science.”  This article will present scientific evidence that clearly show the connections between consciousness and what we call reality and how these can no longer be denied. It will also ponder the implications of this knowing, and how this realization plays an important role in the potential transformation of our planet, at a time when we need it the most.

Scientific understandings change continuously throughout human history.  Old “knowings” are constantly dismissed as we come across new ones. Even with our current understanding about the laws of physics, it could have some loopholes, especially with the recent disclosure of the black budget. We now know that trillions of dollars are going towards projects that the human race knows nothing about. Other phenomenon, like zero-point energy, extracting energy and heat from electromagnetic zero-point radiation via the Casimir force have shown to be correct and conclusive -for more information on these sources, please click here. (1)(9)(10)(11)(12)(13) Some of these ideas threaten our current understanding of physics, but how can we even have an understanding of physics when what we call ‘matter’ isn’t even real? How can we understand it if when we observe an atom at its tiniest level the behavior of that atom changes? The quantum world is definitely a weird one, and it’s safe to say that we don’t understand it, but we do recognize the significance and potential it has to help transform our world. We are starting to recognize that non-physical properties govern the universe, and we are turning our attention towards consciousness and the role it plays with regards to the physical make up of our reality.

The notion that the atom was the smallest particle in the universe fell with the discovery that the atom itself is made up of even smaller, subatomic elements. What was even more shocking was the revelation that these subatomic particles emit various “strange energies.”(0) Proponents would argue that the findings within quantum physics only apply and are significant at the subatomic level, but to those I say, are we not all existing at the subatomic level? When we observe ourselves and our physical environment at the smallest level, are we not made up of atoms? Are we not made up of subatomic particles? Are we not what we observe?

At the turn of the ninetieth century, physicists started to explore the relationship between energy and the structure of matter. In doing so, the belief that a physical, Newtonian material universe that was at the very heart of scientific knowing was dropped, and the realization that matter is nothing but an illusion replaced it. Scientists began to recognize that everything in the Universe is made out of energy.

Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. Therefore, if we really want to observe ourselves and find out what we are, we are really beings of energy and vibration, radiating our own unique energy signature -this is fact and is what quantum physics has shown us time and time again. We are much more than what we perceive ourselves to be, and it’s time we begin to see ourselves in that light. If you observed the composition of an atom with a microscope, you would see a small, invisible tornado like vortex, with a number of infinitely small energy vortices called quarks and photons. These are what make up the structure of the atom. As you focused in closer and closer on the structure of the atom, you would see nothing, you would observe a physical void.(0) The atom has no physical structure, we have no physical structure, physical things really don’t have any physical structure! Atoms are made out of invisible energy, not tangible matter.

It’s quite the conundrum, isn’t it? Our experience tells us that our reality is made up of physical material things, and that our world is an independently existing objective one. Again, what quantum mechanics reveals is that there is no true “physicality” in the universe, that atoms are made of focused vorticies of energy-miniature tornadoes that are constantly popping into and out of existence.  The revelation that the universe is not an assembly of physical parts, suggested by Newtonian physics, and instead comes from a holistic entanglement of immaterial energy waves stems from the work of Albert Einstein, Max Planck, and Werner Heisenberg, among others. (0)

Despite the findings of quantum physics many scientists today still cling onto the prevailing matter-oriented worldview, for no good reason at all. As mentioned earlier, these scientists restrict quantum theory’s validity to the subatomic world. If we know that matter isn’t physical, how can we further our scientific discovery by treating it as physical?

Despite the unrivaled empirical success of quantum theory, the very suggestion that it may be literally true as a description of nature is still greeted with cynicism, incomprehension and even anger. (T. Folger, “Quantum Shmantum”; Discover 22:37-43, 2001)

What Does This Mean?

What does it mean that our physical material reality isn’t really physical at all? It could mean a number of things, and concepts such as this cannot be explored if scientists remain within the boundaries of the only perceived world existing, the world we see. Fortunately, many scientists have already taken the leap, and have already questioned the meaning and implications of what we’ve discovered with quantum physics. One of these potential revelations is that “the observer creates the reality.”

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. (R. C. Henry, “The Mental Universe”; Nature 436:29, 2005) (14)

We can no longer ignore the fact that our beliefs, perceptions and attitudes (consciousness) create the world.

Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual (14)

One great example that illustrates the role of consciousness within the physical material world (which we know not to be so physical) is the double slit experiment. This experiment has been used multiple times to explore the role of consciousness in shaping the nature of physical reality. (2)

A double-slit optical system was used to test the possible role of consciousness in the collapse of the quantum wave-function.(2) The ratio of the interference pattern’s double-slit spectral power to its single-slit spectral power was predicted to decrease when attention was focused toward the double-slit as compared to away from it.(2) The study found that factors associated with consciousness, such as meditation, experience, electrocortical markers of focused attention and psychological factors such as openness and absorption, significantly correlated in predicted ways with perturbations in the double-slit interference pattern.(2)

Below is a video that demonstrates the double slit experiment from the film “What the bleep do we know.”

The problem presented in this experiment is called the quantum measurement problem (QMP). It refers to (as seen in the video) the intriguing effect whereby quantum objects appear to behave differently when observed than when unobserved.(2) Scientists only view it as a problem because it disregards what our senses tell us, that the world is completely independent of observation. This problem has led to the study of the role of observation and measurement -which many believe to be one aspect of consciousness due to our mind-like capacity of awareness, attention and intention.

Observation not only disturb 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. (2)

These types of experiments are not the only ones available that show consciousness does play a role, and is interconnected with our physical material reality in some way. The possible influence of human consciousness on the behavior of physical or biological systems has been subject to rigorous research and documentation for a number of years by several researches. Many of the experiments that use the role of human consciousness and how it affects our physical material world have been done so under the Department of Defense and military agencies, thus remaining classified -hidden science kept from the eyes of the mainstream public world. (3)

One example of this is the 24-year government-sponsored program to investigate ESP and its potential use within the Intelligence Community. This operation was called STAR GATE , and most of its research and findings remain classified to this day. (4) Another example is the research conducted by the CIA and NSA in conjunction with Stanford University. (5)(6)(7).

Personally, I am compelled to believe that much of the science that deals with the “weirdness” of the quantum world, and many of its technological applications remains within the realm of the classified world. A world so secretive that it could be thousands, if not millions of years ahead of the mainstream world.

What Level Of Consciousness Do You Operate From?

Now that we’ve established that our physical makeup is one that is not physical at all, where do we go from here? We are atoms, made up of subatomic particles, that are actually a bunch of energy vibrating at a certain frequency. Us, these vibrational beings of energy exhibit consciousness, which has been shown to manifest, create and correlate to our physical material world. The next question to ask ourselves is: what level of consciousness/ state of being do we individually, and more importantly, collectively operate from?

Studies have shown that positive emotions and operating from a place of peace within oneself can lead to a very different experience for the person emitting those emotions and for those around them. At our subatomic level, does the vibrational frequency change the manifestation of physical reality? If so, in what way? We know that when an atom changes it’s state, it absorbs or emits electromagnetic frequencies, which are responsible for changing it’s state. (15) Do different states of emotion, perception and feelings result in different electromagnetic frequencies? Yes! This has been proven. (8)

Below is a video that uses the example of the heart, and sheds some light on some facts you may not have known.

The non-physical world is weird, isn’t it? The fact that material substances (matter) appear out of thin air, with lots of evidence to point to consciousness as that which is creating it, is pretty intriguing. One minute we are holding a physical object in our hand, like a coin, and then the next minute we realize that if we were to focus in on the coins material substance with an atomic microscope, we would see that we are actually holding nothing.

The best we can do for now is understand that the human race must operate from a place of peace, a place of co-operation and understanding. We must realize that we are all interconnected, that we can solve our problems here easily, given the fact that we have a number of solutions. The only way we will be able to implement and utilize these solutions is through a shift in consciousness. The world is indeed waking up. My soul knows the significance of these findings, it is difficult for the mind to explain. Hopefully I did a decent job.

Stop Blaming Your Genes – You Are In Control of You


Source: PreventDisease.com
Mae Chan
September 1, 2016

There is a chronic anxiety among populations who focus on the diseases acquired by their genetic line. Many define the potential of their own health based on what happened to their father and mother. Although a great deal of who we are appears to have been written in our genes, our actual health potential is more determined by our lifestyle, what we consume, our environment but more than anything else, what we think.

Every thought creates a physiological response in the body, or in other words, every thought we think produces a physical reality. Esoteric and spiritual teachers have known for ages that our body is programmable by language, words and thought. This has now been scientifically proven and explained.

Studies at the world-leading Minnesota Center for Twin and Family suggest that many of our traits are more than 50% inherited, including obedience to authority, vulnerability to stress, and risk-seeking. Researchers have even suggested that when it comes to issues such as religion and politics, our choices are much more determined by our genes than we think.

Many find this disturbing. The idea that unconscious biological forces drive our beliefs and actions would seem to pose a real threat to our free will. We like to think that we make choices on the basis of our own conscious deliberations. But isn’t all that thinking things over irrelevant if our final decision was already written in our genetic code? And doesn’t the whole edifice of personal responsibility collapse if we accept that “my genes made me do it”?

Genes are only part of our health story, explains Jeffrey S. Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB, author of the book, Genetic Nutritioneering: How You Can Modify Inherited Traits and Live a Longer, Healthier Life. The propensity for certain health conditions that you inherit from your family is not, by a long shot, the sole determinant of whether or not most folks will get sick. Your lifestyle choices have a significant impact, especially when it comes to chronic illnesses such as heart disease.

Epigenetic Switch

In the fields of infant nutrition, diabetes, obesity, and the metabolic syndrome, the term “metabolic programming” has been coined to give a name to the observation that environmental experiences early in life may be “genomically” remembered and give rise to health outcomes manifesting later in life. Epigenetics emerges as an important mechanism underlying this phenomenon.

Epigenetics is the phenomena whereby genetically identical cells express their genes differently, resulting in different physical traits. Researchers from the Boston University Cancer Center published two articles about this in Anticancer Research and Epigenomics.

Cancer progression is extremely complex, however. It also is well known that new mutations and the activation of more cancer causing genes occur throughout the development and progression of cancer.

“If we believe that everything in nature occurs in an organized fashion, then it is logical to assume that cancer development cannot be as disorganized as it may seem,” said Sibaji Sarkar, PhD, instructor of medicine at BUSM and the articles corresponding author. “There should be a general mechanism that initiates cancer progression from predisposed progenitor cells, which likely involves epigenetic changes.”

Increasingly, biologists are finding that non-genetic variation acquired during the life of an organism can sometimes be passed on to offspring–a phenomenon known as epigenetic inheritance.

The majority of epigenetic changes occur at specific times in an individual’s life, from their time in the womb, to the development as newborns, then in puberty, and again in old age.

Environmental factors that influence epigenetic patterns — e.g., diet, epigenetic disruptors in the environment such as chemicals, etc. – may also have long term, multigenerational effects.

In recent years, faith in the explanatory power of genes has waned. Today, few scientists believe that there is a simple “gene for” anything. Almost all inherited features or traits are the products of complex interactions of numerous genes combined with processes we have no concept of. However, the fact that there is no one genetic trigger has not by itself undermined the claim that many of our deepest character traits, dispositions and even opinions are genetically determined. This worry is only slightly tempered by what we are learning about epigenetics, which shows how many inherited traits only get “switched on” in certain environments.

The common mistake people make is to assume that if, for example, a disease is 90% heritable, then 90% of people with that disease inherited the condition from their parents. But heritability is not about “chance or risk of passing it on”, said Tim Spector, Professor of Genetics and Author. “It simply means how much of the variation within a given population is down to genes. Crucially, this will be different according to the environment of that population.

Cellular Inheritance

Biologists have suspected for years that some kind of epigenetic inheritance occurs at the cellular level. The different kinds of cells in our bodies provide an example. Skin cells and brain cells have different forms and functions, despite having exactly the same DNA. There must be mechanisms–other than DNA–that make sure skin cells stay skin cells when they divide.

The existence of this epigenetic switch is indirectly supported by the fact that tumors develop through different stages. When cells rapidly grow during cancer progression, they become stuck in their current stage of development and their cell characteristics do not change. This is the reason that there are so many types of leukemia — the characteristics that a leukemia cell possesses when it begins to rapidly grow and expand are the characteristics that it will keep until the rapid growth stops.

Dr. Bruce Lipton
refers to the work of Dr. Dean Ornish to extrapolate. “Dr. Ornish has taken conventional cardiovascular patients, provided them with important lifestyle insights (better diet, stress-reduction techniques, and so on), and without drugs, the cardiovascular disease was resolved. Ornish relayed that if he’d gotten the same results with a drug, every doctor would be prescribing it.”

Even the strictest lifestyle changes don’t cure cancer in everyone. What about genetic predispositions to getting the disease? “It used to be that we thought a mutant gene caused cancer,” Lipton admitted, “but with epigenetics, all of that has changed.”

“If we believe that all of the irreversible changes, mutations and effects of carcinogens make cells rapidly grow, then the mechanism that allows cells to stop growing and assume new changes in character must be of great importance,” added Sarkar. “The study of cancer progression is key to understanding how cancer cells continue to differentiate.”During cancer progression, there are different stages of rapid growth and differentiation. The control that allows for this switch between growth and differentiation can only be achieved through reversible mechanisms, such as epigenetic changes.

If we believe that all of the irreversible changes, mutations and effects of carcinogens make cells rapidly grow, then the mechanism that allows cells to stop growing and assume new changes in character must be of great importance,” added Sarkar. “The study of cancer progression is key to understanding how cancer cells continue to differentiate.”During cancer progression, there are different stages of rapid growth and differentiation. The control that allows for this switch between growth and differentiation can only be achieved through reversible mechanisms, such as epigenetic changes.

Sarkar and colleagues have previously proposed that epigenetic changes are involved in cancer progenitor cell formation and cancer progression. They also believe that epigenetic changes have the ability to control rapid growth and change of characteristics (different grades/types of tumors) which may involve physiological processes that the cancer cells are subjected to within the body’s terrain.

Identical twins show us that in the nature-versus-nurture debate, there is no winner. Both have their role to play in shaping who we are. But although we have reason to doubt that our genes determine our lives in some absolute way, this does not solve a bigger worry about whether or not we have free will.

Who we are appears to be a product of both nature, nurture and consciousness itself in whatever proportion they contribute. You are often shaped by forces beyond yourself, and can choose what you become. And so when you go on to make the choices in life that really matter, you do so on the basis of beliefs, values and dispositions that you have chosen whether you are conscious of those choices or not.

It is very possible that our entire reality is define but what we feel and this shapes what we are. We always have free choice and will to make ourselves into something that we believe we are. The question is, do you believe it?

Ancient Knowledge [Part 4.5] – Scientific/Historical Misconceptions, Suppression & Manipulation of Info

“If you have a golfball sized consciousness…when you read a book you’ll have a golfball size understanding…When you look out, a golfball size awareness…and when you wake up in the morning…a golfball size weightfulness…But if you could expand that consciousness…then you read the book…more understanding, you look out, more awareness…when you wake up, more weightfulness. It’s consciousness. And there is an ocean of pure vibrant consciousness inside each one of us. And its right at the source and base of mind, right at the source of thought – It’s also at the source of matter.”

“All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force… We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.”
― Max Planck

———————————————————-

The Ancients knew much more than given credit for regarding Life, The Universe, Astronomy, Advanced Mathematics, Magnetism, Healing, Unseen Forces, etc.

Encoded knowledge is information that is conveyed in signs and symbols.  These can be found all over the world.  All these ancient symbols and geometric patterns [Sacred Geometry] illustrate unseen forces at work.  What are we not being told?  Is there more to life out there than what we are brought up to believe?  Is the Universe, the Earth, and its people, vastly more wondrous than we could have ever imagined?

The next installment in the Ancient Knowledge Series by KilluminatiTheMovie covers another adjunct of significant information that has been downright suppressed.  To date, this might just be the most thought-provoking segment of the series as it grazes our hidden history in a really incisive way with information provided in great detail by Michael Cremo, who is author of Forbidden Archaeology – The Hidden History Of The Human Race.  Historical misconceptions are also tested to the brink in the earlier portion of this video with Bruce Lipton Ph.D who is author of The Biology Of Belief.

Bruce Lipton Ph.D & Tom Campbell Discuss The Nature Of Reality

Tom Campbell, physicist (formerly with NASA), and Bruce Lipton, biologist (author of The Biology of Belief), discuss what they have discovered about reality from their unique perspectives.

Analyzing Human Action – Paris Events


By: Zy Marquiez
November 14, 2015

As a preamble, let me just say that the power of conscious thought, be it prayer, intention, meditation, et al., is a beautiful thing. It can accomplish far-reaching and wondrous manifestations. If you haven’t researched it, do so. Books such as The Intention Experiment, The Field & The Bond by Lynne McTaggart, and The Honeymoon Effect & The Biology Of Belief, by Dr. Bruce H. Lipton Ph.D, outline what is possible in this limitless reality of ours. There are countless other books, and experiments as well.  Look it up.

Now let us segue into the core of this musing.

Recently, disastrous events took place in Paris. Many people unfortunately lost their lives. It truly is a despicably heinous act when a life is lost, yet many such unfortunate ways, even more so in such circumstances.  However, what has transgressed thereafter by folks empathizing with the situation has left me pondering much about human nature.

In various videos, social media threads and countless articles all over the internet, many people are instantly sharing the “Pray For Paris” catch phrase. The sharing of that catch phrase is not what has left me ruminating considerably. It is why people have chosen to do so that has left me in deep thought.

What makes people act? What is meant by that query is, what made people chose – if it was their choice, and not a preprogrammed response, mind you – to share the emotions the media propounds. Is it a heartfelt feeling for others? Is it concern for our fellow man? Is it out of love? Or is it something else?

At breakneck speed, hundreds of folks online are mirroring what has been shared by others, without putting too much thought to it. Why does the “Pray For Paris” catch phrase abound?

When the populace runs with something, especially when the media is involved, [and they oft are] something usually lurks behind. In this particular case, it stands to reason that the idea behind this phrase has ‘started’ so to speak, with the media.

Why is this important? Because the same media that tells us that 100+ people unfortunately died today, is the same media that does not cover the fact that over 225,000 people lose their lives in a medical system that puts profits over health. And those are extremely conservative numbers. The US health care system leaves much to be desired.  But you hear not of that anywhere in the media.

The above data has been outlined in a paper by Dr. Barbara Starfield many years ago, who was extolled for being a pundit at the John Hopkins School of Public Health. Her review published on July 26, 2000 named “Is US health really the best in the world?” was in fact published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. That particular paper can be downloaded freely as a PDF here.

Think that’s bad? It gets worse.

More recent data portends something far more ominous. A study that was conducted in 2013 by the Journal of Patient Safety estimated medical mistakes account for 210,000 to 440,000 US deaths annually.   That, and other medical misdiagnoses are covered in great in detail by article by Dr. Mercola.

Am no betting person, but am willing to wager that most people have not even heard of such statistics. Why is that? Why isn’t the media covering such life-threatening information to the populace? Ponder about that for a bit.  Really sink your teeth into that one.

Another question: why now, does the media chose to cover the latest 100+ deaths in Paris, when every year like clockwork between 225,000 to 400,000 people lose their lives conservatively, and millions more end up hurt and maimed? The latter obviously being many orders of magnitude worse, and yet you hear not a peep.

Crickets are heard instead.

Keep those facts in mind. Now let us circle back to an individual’s actions.

The individual, although powerful, follows the herd more times than one could count thus relinquishing their power.

Don’t believe me? How many times do we see avalanches of folks storming the entryway at the local Walmarts and such during the ‘retail rapture’ of Black Friday. These same folks that would never do such a thing, individually, EVER, follow the herd without a mere thought in the most disturbing form of groupthink. People have lost their lives, and countless more have been injured.

Tomorrow’s Quote Of The Day by Mark Twain outlines this best:

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”

That helps narrow down one possible reason why people have shared their thoughts about Paris. Is such always the case?

What happens when the media steers the populace wrong? And don’t tell me that hasn’t happened. You are reading this blog after all, and by such action are not of an average mind at minimum, but an inquiring mind, which is quite the accomplishment these days.

For those that might not know of any such scenarios, here is one.  Over a decade ago the media told us over, and over, and over, dozens if not hundreds of times how there were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq and so on and so forth. None were ever found. However, the events that transpired in our post-911 world, have cost tens of thousands of lives, and over a decade of war, and it hasn’t stopped. And all that in its nascent stages was supported by most of the people, clamoring for war in droves.

A nation was stirred like an enraged hornet’s nest, and again, without a mere second though.

What has that solved? More war? More death? More infringements on rights?

Some darker elements within our societal infrastructure did benefit.

In fact, they benefit only from chaos. Peace does not bring them untold billions in profits, and additional billions in resource control after ‘aid’ is given to those country’s that ‘chose’ to cooperate with the US geopolitical version of righteousness.

Ironic, that in this very scenario, the answer to such action will be, you guessed it, more war & more death. Will it ever stop?

Some have elucidated that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the very definition of insanity, and its seems rather reasonable.  So why are people trusting the media over and over again, when there are countless examples of their lack of respect for the truth?

Let us retrace back to actions. Individual actions.

We have seen what people do in groups. They can share a heartfelt message, or they can even blindly support horrific atrocities, by the same mechanism.

What enables such? The media, for starters. Repetition also factors much into people’s actions, which is why it is such a potent advertising technique. It doesn’t work on everyone though. The precise, deep-thinking mind of a conscious, incisive individual is incapable of being used as pawn. This boundless power is the ultimate freedom.  The power that is targeted by attempting to merge the individual into the collective glob, but that’s another musing. 

Moral of the story? Ask yourself this.

Why does one feel the need to share a message, only when the media says so, but when there are vastly more important issues out there, people bat not even an eyelash? Why do people rush to judgement of any particular issue based on what the media says, rather than exercise the ability and capacity of their own mind? Ever notice how the media rarely has balanced news? There is always an agenda, and the profit motive looms extremely large as well, which dictates what will be run by the press. That is why fear sells. Nothing spawns emotions such as fear. That’s their ace in the hole. Nothing spawns war like fear either. Are you getting it?

The media is a tool of control, which only gives you the version of reality that they deem worthy of your knowledge. If 100+ in Paris lose their lives, that is important! If 225,000 to 400,000 people lose their lives yearly, by virtue of a senseless medical system, its not important because they media didn’t say so. Isn’t that interesting? It surely is a nice comfortable reality for one to live in, but one littered with more lies than bevy of politicians.

Be honest with yourself. Are you a person that buys hook-line-and-sinker what the media says, or do you know someone that does? Or do you investigate to figure out what really takes place? Do you wonder if there are any other more important issues worthy of being reported? Do you wonder why they aren’t being reported when you do find them? Do you ever wonder who benefits from the events that took place, and from the way in which the media portrays them? Countless questions, indeed. But they need to be asked.

The great thing is, that your mind, your very consciousness allows you to put considerable thought and power behind your every action.  This precision is power that goes mostly untapped, because most operate as a machine, rather than a well oiled and cared for manual V-12 mental engine.

So when the media shares a message, relates a story, or tells you what to think, what are you going to do? Are you going to take that information at face value? Or are you going to go looking for what lies behind the curtain?

The choice is yours. It is always yours.

Remember, you can only breakaway from conventional thinking if you yourself are behind the actions you carry out.  If what you are running previous programs learned over years of life run via your subconscious mind, then you are selling yourself short.  The good thing is you can learn how to reprogram your subconscious mind.  Dr. Bruce Lipton Ph.D covers this rather poignantly.
