The Science of Metaphysics – Richard’s Commentary

Here’s the key thought in Rosemary’s post last Friday:

“The Universe is revealing itself to scientists in such a way that they can now believe what metaphysicians have known through their revelatory methods.”

And here she was quoting the Pleiedians. There is a lot of information in this compact sentence.

First “the Universe is revealing itself.” In a sense this is referring to consciousness itself. There are those, Robert Lanza, author of Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe, for example, who would support the argument made here; that consciousness expands in parallel with the expanding of the Universe and our understanding of that Universe. This expansionism, one could call it evolution, is one and the same as “biocentrism.” Lanza argues that it is, in fact, Consciousness as housed in biology that creates the Universe. It seems we can’t have a Universe without Consciousness, nor can we have Consciousness, particularly housed in biology, without the Universe!

This phrase then seems a truism if we equate the Universe with Consciousness.

Second, “scientists … can now believe…” Yes, science is another belief system just as so many religions and other organizational approaches to consciousness are. The sad fact is there are scientists who seem more dogmatic about their system than some religious leaders; and there are many in western society that kowtow to science when they would never be caught kowtowing to any religion or religious figure!

Third, “what metaphysicians have known…” So, scientists “believe” while metaphysicians “know.” This is a telling phrase and comparison. The implication is science is still evolving, learning, gaining revelation as the Universe unfolds (as consciousness expands). They are gaining insights in areas where metaphysicians have already made their explorations and discoveries.

Fourth, “through their (metaphysicians’) revelatory methods.” The methods, of course, are inner seeking, contemplative and meditative approaches to searching for truth. The Pleiedians say it best:

“In the realm of metaphysics, one rises above the known, the expected, and opens oneself to the field of limitless possibilities. No judgments. No pre-conceived notions. No rules and no ‘shoulds.’ The metaphysician is open to the exploration in a way that is energized by curiosity and receptivity. There is also a trust that is engendered by an understanding that the metaphysician has of the connectedness of all things, the unity that is The Universe. The guiding principle of the metaphysician is, ‘As Above, So Below.’ Thus, all exploration of The Universe at large is an exploration of the Self, the Universe Within, and vice versa.”

The methods here are open and inner exploration. There are no hypotheses set forth, no preconceived notions of the way things “should” be. And therefore Consciousness is allowed to expand, to evolve; the Universe reveals herself in her ever expanding glory.

And the metaphysician “knows.”

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: The Science of Metaphysics

Today’s message is from The Pleiedians for you:

“We wish to speak today about the Science of Metaphysics.

Many have said that ‘Science is now proving what metaphysics has known for a long time.’ The truth can actually be languaged in a better way:

“The Universe is revealing itself to scientists in such a way that they can now believe what metaphysicians have known through their revelatory methods.”

This shifts the information to ‘revelation’ from ‘discovery,’ moving the action to The Universe as the Revealer from the scientist as the Discoverer.

This may seem to be a subtle shift but it is an important one, for scientists can only discover what The Universe is ready to reveal to them. Each apparent quantum leap forward in understanding by humans is the result, not of discoveries, but of the Recognition of Revelations, humans recognizing what The Universe is revealing.

Humans have been recognizing the revelations of The Universe for many millennia. It is science that has limited its ability to recognize these revelations by putting limits on what can be discovered, by narrowing its focus to a list of what things should look like according to established norms. The whole process of scientific inquiry is based on creating a set of assumptions based on a hypothesis (a human construction of a possibility) and then trying to prove or disprove that hypothesis. Unexpected results are often discarded or identified as ‘anomalous.’ The role of other scientists is to argue against what the findings are.

There might be times in the physical world where this system works, but let us contrast this with the way that metaphysicians operate in their explorations.

In the realm of metaphysics, one rises above the known, the expected, and opens oneself to the field of limitless possibilities. No judgments. No pre-conceived notions. No rules and no ‘shoulds.’ The metaphysician is open to the exploration in a way that is energized by curiosity and receptivity. There is also a trust that is engendered by an understanding that the metaphysician has of the connectedness of all things, the unity that is The Universe. The guiding principle of the metaphysician is, ‘As Above, So Below.’ Thus, all exploration of The Universe at large is an exploration of the Self, the Universe Within, and vice versa.

Those civilizations that moved away from the concept of the unity of The Universe collapsed onto themselves in their pursuit of separation.

Science and the pursuits of the mind are not separate from metaphysics and what is known in the heart. Judgment is not the same as discernment. Openness and acceptance are not signs of weakness but, rather, are signs of great strength and a wise understanding of the true nature of The Universe.

Those who embrace the path of the metaphysician will have more science revealed to them than those who limit themselves to the narrow path of the scientist.

The explorer is never certain of the revelation that is waiting beyond the next bend in the path, but is ever open to the wonder that lies there.

It Is So.”

And, so, are you willing to be open to the path of the metaphysician and EXPLORE?

Cycling – Richard’s Commentary

I find it interesting when Rosemary’s “explorations” line up nicely with mine. It was just a couple of weeks ago that I started publishing a “Friday Poem” from my collection I call “Rhythms and Cycles.” And here’s Rosemary’s post on “Cycling”!

But these aren’t really cycles, are they? In fact Rosemary’s second sentence in her post clarifies her meaning:

Life is a spiraling experience and, when we try to make it linear, going out in front of us in a straight line and looking behind us as if everything happened in a straight line, we diminish the importance of the cycles that we have experienced.

“Life is a spiraling experience.” There is a vector to all of this; it may not be linear but it is clearly going somewhere! At least I think it is despite some of the ridiculous efforts to spiral us backwards!

Rosemary and I took in the Annapolis Film Festival this past weekend. We saw several very fine films and very much enjoyed immersing ourselves in the film industry for a few days. One of the splendid films we saw was “Particle Fever”, a documentary about the building of and science behind the Large Hadron Collider, the largest machine and experiment ever built. Speaking of cycles this machine can whirl protons at one another around a 17-mile circular tunnel at speeds approaching that of light! It’s an amazing accomplishment that the Collider is revealing structures of matter as it existed just after the Big Bang. Watching the film I got a real sense of innovation, progress, discovery and jubilation as humans push through the boundaries of knowledge.

Cycling, spiraling through time to know. Isn’t this what we are here for?

And yet, there are those who want to end science, deny the truths we discover, debate facts with lies when it suits their political goals and supports their financial backers. It is with this in mind, the contrast between those who are spending their lives in the search for truth and those who deny the very benefit of science and our discoveries, that I wrote the following as it pertains to cycles:

Time flows on and everyone floats toward another milestone, whether it’s another birthday, another accomplishment on some schedule, another dream, either achieved or let go. Every moment is a milestone, every breath another passage. And we all flow together in these momentous passages, not just of time and the markers we use, but in consciousness as we develop, in spite of ourselves, the next layers of awareness, micron by micron.

This is the reality, even for the doubters and the protestors. Whether “they” (we) believe in progress or not, whether we believe in science or not, whether we choose to remain in darkness or awaken to the dawning light of ever evolving realization, the inexorable march of time, the entropy of the Universe, the unstoppable building will continue! It cannot be legislated against, it cannot be denied by the most eloquent and articulate oration, it cannot be hidden, no matter how tightly we close our eyes, and minds, to it. The conscious mind is driven. There is a compulsion about this drive for knowledge and expanded consciousness that seems to be built in to our framework, the architecture. The human mind is wired to seek, to understand, to challenge the common and create the new, that next layer of understanding. Let the naysayers bray as loudly as they will. They will continue to make asses of themselves. Their noise will be temporary just as the latest theories, scientific or otherwise, are temporary way-points along the long non-ending journey toward Truth.
