Are we living inside a virtual simulation?

A 2012 study out of Bonn University led to a new round of speculation about the nature of the universe. (See here and here.)

The study proposes that cosmic rays undergo a strange energy shift. The energies are “re-fitted” to align with an underlying pattern or lattice. There is only one proper fit; no exceptions are permitted.

If the lattice is, indeed, a basic pixel-like Reality we are interacting with every day of our lives, then we could be living inside a created artifice.

A simulation.

Put this description alongside the hypothesis that the universe is a hologram: lines of code inscribed on a two-dimensional surface deliver instructions on how the lattice is built, and what its properties are.

In other words, the software which holographically projects the universe includes the exact structure of the lattice.

Then, by the rules of the game, energies which don’t automatically plug into the lattice framework precisely as they’re supposed to are “snapped to” a correct fit, as Mike Adams (Natural News) has suggested.

Mike has made the analogy to a television picture, which consists of pixels that have their own dimensions and structure. So if we imagine an all-encompassing “television picture,” this would be the lattice-controlled reality we live in.

In the long-term project of putting together my collections The Matrix Revealed and Exit From The Matrix, I did a great deal of research on other notions of creation or “reality-building.”

It is clear that at deep levels, propaganda turns into self-propaganda. In order to live inside a Matrix or universe, we would have to produce, in ourselves, an extraordinary level of amnesia about what we can create.

The ancient Tibetans knew a great deal about this conundrum. Before they became a theocratic society of rites and rituals and a rigorous elitism, they were daring adventurers on the edge of experiments in consciousness.

Relying on the teachings of itinerant outcast adepts from India, they developed a practice called, by a few later scholars, “deity visualization.” (See John Blofeld, The Tantric Mysticism of Tibet)

Perhaps based on an already existing mandala-painting, a teacher would give his student a very detailed and specific “personage” to create in his imagination. This effort, if it was successful at all, might take months or even years.

The objective was to mentally hold the complex image intact, in every detail, not just for a few seconds or minutes, but indefinitely. If the student was successful at this arduous task, he would soon find that the personage he created seemed to take on a life of its own.

The personage or deity would become the student’s friend and guide and give him valuable advice and counsel. When the teacher sensed this relationship had progressed to a very close point, he would order the student to get rid of the personage altogether.

This, it was said, was more difficult than the original act of creating it. But if the student was able to perform both aspects (creative and destructive) of the exercise, he would then realize, see, and know, with full consciousness, that THE UNIVERSE WAS A PRODUCT OF MIND.

At that crossroad, he would be able to spontaneously take apart pieces of “the hologram” or “the lattice,” and even create (out of nothing) new objects that hadn’t existed before.

Perhaps those Tibetan adepts, in their practice, actually saw the lattice or even the two-dimensional surface on which the holographic code of the cosmos is inscribed.

Another clue concerning the origin or underlying force that made the universe is revealed through a study of the famous alchemical diagram: two crossed staves.

The four endpoints were said to represent the basic aspects or elements of Nature: earth, air, fire, and water. According to some alchemical interpretations, these elements were in eternal conflict with one another.

The resolution of the conflict was represented by the center-place where the two staves met. This mysterious intersection was called Quintessence, and its meaning was long debated.

Paracelsus, one of the most famous of the European alchemists, seems to have thought that Quintessence was, in fact, imagination.

In other words, our creative power could change the inherent design of reality.

The history of millions of artists on this planet directly points to the fact that, when freed from restraints, human beings become enormously creative. Every painting, play, poem, novel is a world of its own; a universe. This suggests that the physical universe is but one work of art, out of a possible infinity of universes.

William Blake made several remarkable statements about the power of imagination:

“Some see nature all ridicule and deformity…and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”

Kundalini Yoga Channels Energy to Where Your Body Needs Healing the Most

Kundalini Yoga Channels Energy to Where Your Body Needs Healing the Most
Valerie Burke, MSN

Modern brain imaging shows that Kundalini Yoga causes a shift in cerebral blood flow to the part of your brain responsible for feelings of joy, happiness and compassion

“You are very powerful. Provided you know how powerful you are.” – Yogi Bhajan

This is the second in a two-part series about Kundalini Yoga. In Part 1, the basic framework was built for understanding the value of a Kundalini Yoga practice. In Part 2, we will explore how various symptoms and illnesses can be treated by this ancient form of yoga, and what therapeutic benefits are supported by science, to date.

In Part 1, the age-old concept of “Kundalini” was introduced, as both a form of energy and a mechanism for distributing that energy throughout the body. Basic terminology was also introduced, including the terms “prana” and “chakra,” as well as the essential components of a Kundalini Yoga practice. If you missed Part 1 or need a refresher, you can find it here


Freedom from Illness Requires Freeing Your Kundalini

The mind-body connection is now fairly well established by science. Health is a balancing act between all aspects of your being—mind, body, and spirit—with the three interwoven in a mysterious web of energy and consciousness.

Unresolved emotional trauma can disrupt Kundalini flow and cause stagnation in the chakras, and over time those disruptions can manifest as physical symptoms. When Kundalini is opened up, however, the body intelligently heals itself.

As an example, Kundalini offers a completely different perspective on the symptoms of menopause. The cessation of menses represents the closing of a “gate.” Hot flashes help guide this newly realized energy, or “awakening” Kundalini, up the spine toward the head where, ideally, it is transformed into a higher state of consciousness. Think of the archetypal older, wiser woman!

Menstrual pain, bloating, thyroid malfunctions, headaches, memory loss and other menopausal symptoms are associated with resistance to the passage of Kundalini. However, if Kundalini moves up the spine unimpeded, then it confers “enlightenment, not incontinence.” Viewing menopause as an opportunity for expanded consciousness gives this important life passage an entirely new meaning for women. For more about this, I encourage you to read Menopause is Enlightenment by Katharina Kroeber.

Because Kundalini has biological manifestations, it can be measured and studied. In the remainder of this article, we will examine what science says about how Kundalini Yoga affects your brain and body.

Meditation, Mysticism and Neuroscience

Modern neuroscience is now shining new light on the brain’s activity in response to yoga, meditation, and mysticism (including near-death experiences), giving rise to an entirely new branch of science called “neurotheology.” Dr. Andrew Newberg of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine has made significant contributions in this area.

Newberg uses fMRI, PET and SPEC7 scans to study the brains of meditating Tibetan Buddhist monks, known experts in Kundalini-style meditation. Neural imaging reveals that spirituality activates the limbic system of the brain, a region responsible for our experiencing of positive emotions and interpersonal connections with others. It appears the phenomenon of “spiritual awakening” is not just psychological but associated with actual changes in brain function—specifically, shifts in dominant brain activity from parietal to prefrontal regions.

Some of Newberg’s findings have been corroborated by neuroscientist Richard Davidson of the University of Wisconsin, thanks to his special friendship with the Dalai Lama who loaned him eight of his most accomplished meditators. EEG and fMRI scans confirmed very high activity in the monks’ prefrontal cortices, especially in the left hemisphere. The left prefrontal cortex is associated with feelings of joy, happiness and compassion.

In 1999, Peng demonstrated that meditation is not an autonomically quiescent state and is associated with exaggerated heart rate oscillations. And in 2008, Jeffrey Dusek of Harvard discovered that Kundalini Yoga actually elicits changes in gene expression.
