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 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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
Quantum physics is claimed to support the mystical notion that the mind creates reality. However, an objective reality, with no special role for consciousness, human or cosmic, is consistent with all observations.
In the same email, Eduard Povel also pointed me to Jan Wicherink from Souls of Distortion. An interesting man, resonating with “What the Bleep?”, science and spirituality, and even Joe Satriani, one of my favourite guitarists as well. I’ll ping him for a jam session.
