Zodra ik iets doe wil ik iets anders doen

Prachtig deze man. Ik herken mezelf enorm in zijn Zodra ik iets doe wil ik iets anders doen.

Clifford Stoll could talk about the atmosphere of Jupiter. Or hunting KGB hackers. Or Klein bottles, computers in classrooms, the future. But he’s not going to. Which is fine, because it would be criminal to confine a man with interests as multifarious as Stoll’s to give a talk on any one topic. Instead, he simply captivates his audience with a wildly energetic sprinkling of anecdotes, observations, asides — and even a science experiment. After all, by his own definition, he’s a scientist: “Once I do something, I want to do something else.”

Time according to Deepak Chopra

Transcript of video

Time in my view is the continuity of memory using the ego as an internal reference point. When we break the barrier of ego, the self-image, we break the barrier of time.

So time is the separation that occurs when there is the differentiation of our consiousness into observer, process of observation and that which is observed. And then how we measure our observations through the creation of an artificial observer gives us the experience of time.

In fact, there is no time—there is only eternity. The measurement of eternity is symbolized as the measurement of time. And, of course, how we metabolize our experience of time, is the way our bodies undergo entropy. So if we are running out of time, we literally run out of time biologically. People who say “I’m running out of time”, they have speeded up biological clocks. Faster heart rates [inaudible]. And they drop dead of premature heart attacks. They run out of time.

If you are in love time stops. The intoxication of love allows you to experience unity consciousness and timelessness. If you are bored, time drags. And entropy is the metabolism of time.

I have a lot more to say about the nature of time, but I’m running out of time. So, see you next time, or let me know what you think.

Scientific Proof of the Existence of God

Prachtig interview met Amit Goswami over Scientific Proof of the Existence of God. Voor mij is de essentie nog steeds:

Consciousness matters™—and that’s all that matters

En dat kan je dus heel letterlijk nemen. Zelfs het woord heel uit de vorige zin krijgt daardoor voor mij meer waarde.

Richard Dawkins digging his own grave

Seems like Richard Dawkins is digging his own grave in being so closed and arrested regarding opinions in conflict with his own. Check out Deepak Chopra’s posting on I Know I’m Right, So Why Be Fair? where Dawkins acts like a grumpy old man during his encounter with Rupert Sheldrake. Just like in Chopra’s The Science Delusion?.

Sheldrake and Chopra have my votes. And I sure hope Dawkins will continue his current quest. The more energy he puts into it, the faster we will evolve our current ways of thinking. We need guys like Dawkins. He fuels the research on the ever so important area if spirituality, religion, and morphogenesis.

Shift in action

Het Institute of Noetic Sciences heeft een prachtige website met vele nieuwe inzichten en baanbrekend werk klaargezet op Shift in Action.

Tot eind 2007 staan daar vele artikelen, videos en podcasts om niet beschikbaar. Eat your heart out.

Met een paar verhelderende en prettig verstorende video’s van Deepak Chopra.

  1. The Definition and Source of Consciousness.
  2. The Simultaneity of Consciousness.
  3. Discontinuity of the Universe.

Consciousness matters. Thoughts become things™. Consiousness is the phenomenon. Everything else is epiphenomenon.

Some notes from Deepak Chopra’s talk on consciousness:

  • Another word for God: field of awareness which is “a-causal, non-local, quantum-mechanical interrelatedness” that operates with simultaneity.
  • Chronobiology studies the biological rythms (Earth, Moon, Sun, seasons…) that play the symphony of your life with exquisite correlation.
  • You mirror the intelligence of the cosmos.
  • Reductionism is dead. We are at its funeral at the moment.

Anton Heyboer on quantum, consciousness and awareness

Gaston Vilé was searching for the essential difference between consciousness and awareness. While on the phone, I told him that Amit Goswami’s The Self-Aware Universe has an extensive point on this very difference. I promised Gaston to make the key pages available to him, and so I did.

While on his search, Gaston found the website of the artist and painter Anton Heyboer. Heyboer already mentions quantum physiscs and Amit Goswami’s points. A summary:

Heyboer also talks about God. I tend to use the term Universe latelely. Although I was raised as a Christian (gereformeerd), my scope is widened to include many, if not all, religions around the world. Buddhism as it’s most neutral and integral one (and Buddhism is not a religion, as you may know). The term “Universe”, for me, is more, yes, universal. God is still this almighty bearded person for me.

At home in the Universe, as Stuart Kaufman said.

Einstein on Buddhism

Einstein was exploring a new form of spirituality for the future, consider what he had to say about Buddhism:

“Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion of the future. It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural and spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.”

Wonderful.

The Science Delusion?

Wonderful rebuttal by Deepak Chopra: The Science Delusion? Review of Richard Dawkins: The God Delusion. Materialism vs. spiritualism and God. And resonating with Einstein’s God, or The Hopes for Secular Spirituality.

Thank you Richard Dawkins, for writing your “The God Delusion” for it creates enormous attention for this ever important subject. You make people like Chopra and myself dig deeper into consiousness, the universe, quantum physics, God, Allah, Buddha and more. We’re becoming more conscious and knowledgeable about it.

And it’s about time, since we’re rapidly evolving towards the noosphere, catalyzed by the technosphere with the Internet as its most brilliant example at this time.

Spaceship Earth is entering its most risky trajectory when metamorphosing to its next order—extreme emergence. And just like the life-threatening phase during the metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly, albeit on a very large, global, scale.

May we all evolve into a global, and perhaps universal wisdom and happiness. And beware, these massive scale changes or emergence happens relatively abrupt. Buckle on.

Kwantumcomputer wereldveranderend

Volgens Ronald de Wolf van het CWI in een artikel in de Computable nummer 19 van 11 mei 2007, pagina 30 en 31. En zelfs lekkende qubits geven toch antwoord

Benieuwd hoe Ronald aankijkt tegen de kombinatie van spiritualiteit en (kwantum-)wetenschap. En helemaal in de context van de enigzins hyperige [Intention Experiments, Law of Attraction, Zero Point Field, What The Bleep en The Secret. Heeft Ronald The Self-Aware Universe van Amit Goswami gelezen? En? Wat vind Ronald daarvan?

Ik krijg het gevoel dat Computer Science, Quantum Physics en Spirituality de leegte op gaan vullen van linking scientific paradigms, en daarmee de leegte van veel mensen.
