The Science of Consciousness—
The Next Scientific Paradigm
William A. Guillory, Ph.D.
The Science of Consciousness is essentially the study of the non-material world. It is the study of metaphysical phenomena that, for the most part, are not subject to the theories and laws of Newtonian-Cartesian science. However, the human implications of the results of studying consciousness, beyond the physical realm, are immense.
The most impacting result of studying the metaphysical realm is the acquisition of wisdom. I distinguish wisdom from knowledge, as a way of knowing, by the expression: “knowledge is of the mind, wisdom is of the spirit.” In short, wisdom is a way of being that provides the level of intelligence necessary to permanently resolve personal, collective, and global conflict. Wisdom also allows the creation of a context to manage and govern the planet, we call Earth, in a way that truly works in the best interest of all inhabitants—both animate and inanimate.
The study of metaphysics can also provide the systematic development of metaphysical skills that have practical applications in our everyday lives. For example, the many forms of “healing” to assist healthcare, “remote viewing” to assist law enforcement, and “channelling” to provide information, insights, and wisdom about our existence and beyond.
It is my view, that many, if not most, scientists are driven most by curiosity and an innate desire to discover through experience. We have learned much about the immediate environment we inhabit called Earth. Certainly enough to have survival handled. However, this innate desire to know about “things” must be balanced with a desire to know, in-depth, about ourselves in order to preserve our existence in any quality manner.
If we had to give an accounting of how well we manage this planet in the best interests of all to a visitor from outer space, this is what our report might include:
1. Scientific and technical advancements to ensure survival and assist the quality of life are highly developed.
2. Many humans of this planet are underfed or starve daily in spite of the overwhelming quantities of food we produce, store, and throw away.
3. Most of this planet’s resources are “controlled” by less than 10% of our global population, in their own interest.
4. Our environment—land, air, and sea—is deteriorating at a rate that seriously threatens the continuing support of our increasing populations.
5. Our ability (level of wisdom) to resolve human conflict—in comparison to our potential for destruction—is elementary.
6. Most of all, we do not recognize or acknowledge that “our fates are inextricably bound to each other.”
From our scientific and technical achievements, we might conclude that we are a very intelligent species. In fact, we even sometimes muse as to whether other intelligent life even exists in the Universe! This is a very elementary form of human ego gratification.
In spite of the fact that we tend to avoid the systematic study of metaphysics, the phenomena have been around since the existence of humankind. In fact, prior to the declarations of Decartes’Discourse on Methods, they were commonly taken as valid as scientifically-observed proof. In other words, much of the present population actively develop and practice metaphysical skills in spite of Newtonian-Cartesian science’s resistance or outright condemnation.
This state of affairs is most common when a new paradigm is about to legitimately emerge. The real difference here is that preceding paradigms were transitions from one form of material-world study to another material-world study. For example, the Philogiston Theory to the Atomic Theory to the Nuclear Theory to Pure Energy!
Metaphysics involves the transition from the material to the non-material world. Which means, new skills, new tools, new forms of observations that are radically different from the “see-feel-touch-hear-smell” world of measurements with which we are so comfortable. To traditional scientists, this transition can even be threatening. Particularly, where Newtonian-Cartesian science defines “who they are.” This situation is not too unlike Copernicus’ declaration that the Earth revolved about the sun, rather than the Earth being the center of the universe.
In spite of the resistance, the need for the study of consciousness is so compelling that it is presently inevitable. As Victor Hugo stated:
“There is one thing that is more
powerful than all the armies of the world;
and that is an idea whose time has come.”
I define Absolute Pure Consciousness as a uniform field of potentiality without form, composition, consistency, or properties; it simply is. It is unexpressed potential that is infinite in its potential for expression, limited only by the form it expresses through.
Consciousness assumes form by a disturbance in its uniform field to create an infinite array of expressions, e.g., universes, ether, physical or non-physical forms, and energy. From a localized perspective, “consciousness expressed,” can be defined as a dynamic field of intelligence. Again, limited only by the form it expresses through.
If it expresses through a star, it has the expressions of a star—like our sun—to “burn” for millions of years as it consumes its hydrogen content to become a black hole. If it expresses through a rock, it has the limitations of a rock. If it expresses through a flower, it has the limitations of a flower. If it expresses through a human being, it has the limitations of that particular human being.
Everything that exists is conscious of itself and to varying extents, its environment. As consciousness relates to human beings, we are aware of our existence, our surroundings, and to varying extents, how our surrounding stimuli affect us. Using our ordinary five senses for recording our experiences, we apply interpretations based upon our sphere of consciousness—knowing as intelligence and wisdom. Some individuals are significantly more conscious than others in terms of their interpretation of five senses experiences.
For example, some individuals interpret a verbal disagreement as a possible threat to their survival—and thus, react in a correspondingly aggressive or defensive manner. Someone who is more conscious simply recognizes that some people “feel” that their point-of-view is synonymous with their personhood, and responds in a way to allay their fear of a physical attack—by laughing, giving in, confirming the validity of the other person’s view point, etc. The latter individual is more conscious than the person who reacts and might be described as having a greater “sphere of consciousness.”
In this sense one’s personal consciousness might be described as everything one knows—including information, knowledge, and wisdom. The relationship between information, knowledge, and wisdom can be represented by the following equations:
Data interrelated Information creatively Knowledge
Interrelated data produces information and “creatively integrated” information produces knowledge. In this sense, knowledge is acquired by each individual via an experiential process of the creative integration of information. The experience of knowledge in the process of transformation results in wisdom.
Knowledge transformation Wisdom
The form of such transformations may be personal or spiritual. Personal transformation refers to the invalidation of a localized belief or attitude, e.g., “a woman’s place is in the home,” “children should be seen, not heard,” “godless societies are evil,” “democracy is best for everyone,” etc.
Spiritual transformation refers to the restructuring of one’s sense of who he or she is, e.g., an existential crisis. This transformation commonly involves the invalidation or expansion of a major belief pattern one has about their existence as a human being, e.g., the Copernicus’ observation or the validity of metaphysical phenomena. Werner Erhard refers to these belief patterns as a “fundamental life principle.” They are synonymous with our perception of “who we are.” The perception and the person are one. Examples of “fundamental life principles” include, “the strong silent type,” “the savior,” “the intimidator,” “the perfect parent,” “the loyalist,” etc.
If we have devoted a lifetime to perfecting these “personas,” then our attachments can be so immense as to be life-threatening to release them. We are often so unconsciously willing to live consistent with these descriptions of ourselves, that we endure immense pressures of stress, conflict, approval-seeking, and ultimately severe illness before releasing them and opening fully to our inner spiritual consciousness.
In summary, everything that exists is an expression of Absolute Pure Consciousness (a noun) and is simultaneously consciousness (a verb) of itself. The extent to which it is conscious of its environment and can act upon it, is dependent upon the form it expresses through and the sphere of intelligence, knowledge, and wisdom of which it is capable.
III. Newtonian-Cartesian Science
Newtonian-Cartesian Science was created to assist our understanding in dealing with the material world. In this sense, it has done a marvelous job. We have also experienced its limitations as we have conducted subatomic experiments. Beginning with Decartes’ Discourse on Methods (1637) and combining the Newtonian Laws of Physics (1670), humankind has developed an extraordinary ability to harness, mold, and consume the resources of this planet we call Earth.
Sometimes for purposes that enhance the human condition and sometimes (or quite often), for the purposes of conquest, power, and control. The reason I “mix” this discussion of science and the human condition, is because the study of the Science of Consciousness naturally combines the two. For example, the metaphysical phenomenon called “channeling,” most often conveys information (or knowledge to the channeler) that appears to correspond to a significantly expanded state of being—a sense of knowing, as wisdom.
The wisdom acquired is quite often of value in providing a barometer of where we are as well as a direction we might desire. As Newtonian-Cartesian science continues to persevere in mastering the functioning of the human body (not its spiritual consciousness!), it will become “painfully” obvious that the humanistic dimension is not simultaneously being understood or advanced. Hence, the necessity for consciousness exploration for the balance required to continue the Earth-plane existence of the human species.
So, we find ourselves at a precipice and deciding whether or not to jump off into what appears to be nothingness, but consciousness. The conscious jump into this new realm requires a new set of rules that will eventually be bridged back to Newtonian-Cartesian science, but for the present, it requires the creation of a “new” (or different) paradigm of exploration.
A Description of the Domains of Consciousness
A model describing the familiar states of consciousness is shown in Figure 1.
Figure 1. The Bodymind and Metaphysical Domains of Consciousness
Below the discontinuity line is the bodymind (consciousness) domain and above the line is the immediate realm of metaphysical consciousness. It should be understood that “consciousness expressed” in its broadest sense, extends infinitely to other phenomena beyond those described in this diagram.
The blocks below the discontinuity line represent “strongly held” beliefs about reality that often prevent the exploration of the realms beyond the bodymind domain. These beliefs must be realized as representations of physical reality –sometimes valid and sometimes not. From a metaphysical perspective, they must be realized as a single type of representation of how physical reality can manifest; and not the only way. Therefore, these representations do not reflect “truth.” In this sense, they are often described as “illusions of physical reality.”
For example, time is created in physical reality by the sequential occurrence of connected events—dawn to morning to noon to afternoon to night, etc. From a metaphysical perspective, where events occur in multidimensional fashion, dawn to night occurs as a single event, depending upon one’s focus of perspective. Hence, time does not exist! A human being may think in terms of minutes, hours, day, years, or lifetimes, but a mountain “thinks” or “experiences” in terms of eons! Minutes, hours, lifetimes are meaningless within a mountain’s consciousness. Additional contrasts of phenomena between the physical/metaphysical realms are: Finite/Infinite; Laws of Physics/Metaphysical Laws; Three-dimensional/Multidimensional; Combinations/Gestalt; and Knowledge/Wisdom.
Access to the spiritual domain is achieved by a “channel of communication.” This channel is created by a “breakthrough” experience or realization relating to an individual’s strongly-held belief about physical reality. A breakthrough experience is sometimes described as an existential crisis—or a crisis of being. Decartes experienced days of fever and delirium prior to writing the Discourse on Method. Kekule experienced a sequence of dreams of snakes in a pit grasping their own tails that led to his circular-hexagonal proposition of the benzene ring. Jesus is said to have labored in the desert to breakdown his bodymind structure as preparation for his enlightened teachings. These are all examples of experiences and realizations that create free access (via a channel) to the spiritual domain.
This channel allows the manifested phenomena we observe in physical reality known as insight, intuition, creativity, imagination, vision, inspiration, holistic seeing, and quantum-thinking. These expressed phenomena are only limited by the knowledge base and intelligence of the channeler. Again, we note that human mastery involves the combination of both the spiritual and bodymind domains. For example, Einstein “rode” a ray of light around the sun in his imagination, but the Theory of Relativity also required the in-depth knowledge of science, mathematics, and relativistic physics. Da Vinci may have experienced all of the above phenomena, but also had human mastery of science, mathematics, art, and architecture. Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi may have been spiritually inspired, but also required the human qualities of charisma, rhetoric, and commitment.
In summary, the Science of Consciousness is the study of:
§ Phenomena that is beyond physical form
§ That aspect of consciousness that gives rise to physical form
§ The expanded nature and potential of humankind
§ Innerspace phenomena—without human limitation
IV. Contrasting Physical and Metaphysical Science
In 1637, Decartes declared in his Discourse on Methods that science could be studied by the assumption of an “objective observer” drawing conclusions from an independently occurring event. The observed and observer is separate. Thus, an experimental observation might be represented by the following sequence:
Experiment Experience Explanation
Observed Observer Theory or Law
In essence, the scientist (observer) uses the five senses or highly sophisticated instrumentation to experience the experiment. These observations are in turn interpreted, primarily, by existing theories and laws of the discipline to provide an “acceptable” explanation.
It is vital to recognize two important points:
1. The experiment is, in most cases, set-up by the experimenter to make observations that essentially confirm the existing theories and laws. So there is a bias in the set-up and preparation, and hence the observations. The observer is not independent of that observed. An aside: sometimes, nature plays games with us and creates observations contrary to our theories and laws. We usually describe these as anomalies.
2. The explanation we provide is two discontinuous domains away from the experiment. Therefore, the explanation is not the “truth” of what is occurring in the experiment, but a good enough representation to have limited predictive capabilities. Hence the study of science is not the study of reality or truth about the physical world. It is the study of conceptual representations that “mimic” physical phenomena. As Werner Heisenberg stated:
“What we observe is not nature itself,
but nature exposed to our method of questioning.”
In the metaphysical world, there is no assumption of separation between the observed or observer—or more precisely between the projection (phenomenon) and the projector (scientist). They are one. Thus, a metaphysical experiment might be represented by the following sequence:
Observed Theory or Law
We use the terms projection and projector, since many metaphysical experiences involve the “projection of consciousness,” such as astral travel, remote sensing or viewing, empathing, or psychokinesis (PK). The subsequent explanations although subjective, can be summarized as a body of knowledge that is characterizing the same process with different ways of expressing one’s metaexperience (experiencing beyond the five senses).
V. Inner Space Exploration—Metaphysical or Physic Skills
The exploration (experimentation) of “inner space” obviously requires the development, and possibly mastery, of metaphysical or psychic skills. It is assumed that one or more of these skills are both inherent and latent within every human being. The extent to which they are acknowledged and developed is dependent upon the receptivity and openness of an individual to exploring inner space.
For example, someone who is consciously resistant to the acknowledgement that metaphysical skills exist and are available may impose on himself or herself an insurmountable barrier to inner space exploration. Unless, of course, such an individual has an existential crisis that spontaneously opens a channel to the spiritual domain. In general, there are numerous ways to open the channel to self-discovery of one’s physic ability. This article proposes a systematic “scientific” approach to discovering, developing, and applying those skills to inner space exploration.
Physic skills necessary for inner space exploration include:
2. Remote Viewing
4. Psychokinesis (PK)
15. Astral Travel (Projection)
17. Medical Intuitive
20. Aura Reading
It is assumed that every individual has a “natural propensity” for one or more of these skills, the same as we have natural propensities for athletics, art, dance, science, engineering, or entertainment. Those interested in the study of metaphysics would have to earn a degree through demonstrating mastery of a particular area of study. This process would obviously be “highly experiential” in addition to highly intellectual.
For example, there are a variety of psychic healing techniques just as there are a variety of fields of chemistry: physical, organic, analytical, inorganic, and nuclear. Various forms of healing include: laying-on-of-hands, kinesiology, reiki, healing-at-a-distance, energy healing, and magnetic-healing.
The requirements for creating a channel to the metaphysical domain involves the willingness to:
1. Acknowledge that what we already know as truth and fact, is extremely limited with respect to all there is to know.
2. Let go, totally, of whatever we presently believe in order to create the “space” for new creative and inspirational concepts.
3. Immerse ourselves into process after process of personal and spiritual transformation in order to invalidate self-imposed barriers to channeling.
4. Master personally-appropriate skills necessary to consciously explore inner space in an unlimited manner.
Creating a Channel—Two Case Studies
The process of connecting to one’s spiritual consciousness—as a course of study—might include the facilitation of challenging case studies. These case studies involve a four-step process:
1. Engagement—engaging ideas/concepts/experiences that transcend one’s presently existing reality. (Something that boggles the mind)
2. Introspection—learning and practicing meditative introspection (during engagement) to question all that one presently believes or values, where necessary. (Seriously challenging one’s belief structure)
3. Transformation—expanded awareness and a sense of self resulting from a personal or spiritual realization. (Invalidation of a belief structure)
4. Wisdom—an in-depth understanding, empathy, and compassion for the human experience. (A way of being)
This four-step guideline can be applied to the two following case studies: Seeking Enlightenment and Global Transformation.
§ “Seeking Enlightenment” is a case study that seeks to facilitate personal transformation, resulting in learning as wisdom. It also seeks to have students (participants) learn their natural propensity for a metaphysical skill.
Seeking Enlightenment—A Simulation Exercise
Part I – Engagement
After experiencing a life-threatening recovery from cancer, Mauve McKinner begins to seriously consider that her recent illness might be related to years of suppressed anger toward her mother. She holds her mother responsible for breaking up their happy family because of Mauve’s divorce from her father for literally no conceivable good reason. This decision was made when Mauve was 12 years old.
1. Do you believe that Mauve is 100% responsible for creating her illness?
Yes _____ No _____ Why?
2. Do you believe Mauve preferred cancer in preference to seriously dealing with the source of her anger?
Yes _____ No _____ Why?
Discussion Exercise: Self-select into groups of 4 to 6 and attempt to reach consensus regarding the two questions above. Attempt to comprise your group of Yes and No responders.
Suggested Transformational Responses
1. Yes. Taking 100% responsibility allows Mauve control in responding to her illness and the complete lack of victimization. As stated in the book “Seth Speaks.”
“We create our reality,
right down to the minutest detail.”
2. Yes, probably unconsciously, but nevertheless, Yes! By presumably refusing to consider her beliefs about her mother to be invalid, and turning her anger inwardly, she also made a preference.
Part II – Introspection
As Mauve reflects on her childhood, she muses over the “hell” she caused her mother – and with justification! As she continues to introspect about her justified deep-seated anger she begins to realize that her mother had a two-year sequence of illnesses that were the first indications of her unhappiness—even though her mother minimized these to retain the “illusion” of a happy family.
The Aha! If her mother was literally killing herself in order to keep the family together, what right did she (Mauve) have to feeling years of anger?
1. What are the consequences to Mauve if the answer to both questions on the previous page were Yes?
2. If an individual is 100% responsible for how they experience and program their life events, then what role does “forgiving someone” play?
Discussion Exercise: In your self-selected groups, discuss the two questions above and see if you an create three (3) to five (5) explanations for the first question and reach concensus on the second.
Suggested Transformational Responses:
1. Her pretense at being a victim is invalidated.
2. She actively participated in causing her mother’s illness.
3. She used her mother’s “illusion” to control, manipulate, and get what she wanted.
4. When necessary, she played hardball by resorting to the use of alcohol, drugs, and poor performance in school.
Responsibility and Forgiveness:
If an individual is 100% responsible for creating whatever happens in their lives, then there is nothing or no one to forgive.
Part III – Transformation and Wisdom
After struggling with her introspective questions for several days and sleepless nights, Mauve realizes that her mother was always overly sensitive to her “nurturing image” as a parent. Ultimate approval was most valued from her children. She concludes that she used this sensitivity on her mother’s part for manipulation, control, and ultimately justification for her deep-seated anger. With no justification, Mauve concludes she is 100% responsible for creating the conditions in her body to be vulnerable to cancer—the result being a feeling of relief, letting-go, and self-resolution of her anger.
1. What “statement of wisdom” would you write if you were Mauve that captures the essence of her transformation?
Statement of Wisdom
“Illnesses in my body are the result of distortions in my mind—and my insistence on living consistent with them, as truths.”
2. What new metaphysical or psychic skill (beyond the five human senses) would become activated by Mauve’s transformation, if you had Mauve’s experience?
The ability to perform psychic examination on one’s self.
Quick Debrief: Self-select into pairs or three, where necessary. Take ten (10) minutes within your groups to share with each other your responses to the two questions above.
§ “Global Transformation” is a case study that seeks to show how the concepts of personal and collective responsibility are most powerful in expanding our global connectedness and that responsibility is ultimately a spiritual concept.
Global Transformation—A Simulation Exercise
Do you believe we individually and collectively create our experiential reality—moment-by-moment, day-by-day, etc.?
Yes _____ No _____ Why?
If no, what aspect(s) of your experiential reality do you not create?
Suggested Transformational Response
Yes. The more conscious we are of our motivations, the more we realize we are in control of what happens in our lives.
We create, consciously, unconsciously, and spiritually every aspect of our living existence.
Do you believe you are 100% responsible for whatever happens in your life?
Yes _____ No _____ Why?
If no, what aspects of your life do you not feel responsible for? What might be your average percentage of what you feel responsible for on a 0 to 100% scale?
Suggested Transformational Response
Yes. The more we learn, by personal transformation, the more we realize we are responsible for whatever happens in our lives.
The extent (percent) to which we deny responsibility is the extent to which we are victimized by situations that occur in our lives.
“External circumstances can, to a certain
extent, influence but never cancel the
responsibility of the individual.”
Considering the events of “nine-eleven,” do you believe we in the U.S. are responsible for what occurred?
Yes_____ No _____ Why?
If you pretended, for conversation sake, that we are responsible—for reasons we cannot rationally explain or fathom—what lessons might we learn from those events?
Suggested Transformational Responses
Implications: If we (consciously, unconsciously, and spiritually) create our experiential reality, then nothing that happens to us relegates us to being victims.
Implications: If we are 100% responsible for whatever happens to us, then much of what we experience as victims is hidden by unconscious motivations—because we are unconscious does not mean we are not responsible.
a) We are inextricably tied to others (ultimately everyone) on this planet—their fate and ours are one.
b) We do things unconsciously to others (because of a lack of concern, caring, and/or awareness) that injures or inflames them.
c) The more we are self-centered, the less concern or awareness we have of how our actions impact or influence others.
d) The more we live in separation from others we “indirectly” impact or influence, the more we will experience them, their thinking, and their behaviors as “unfathomable” – that is, beyond our reality of understanding.
Implications: Only when we consider and accept responsibility for that which is unfair, unreasonable, and unfathomable, do we expand the wisdom of human consciousness to compatibly live with each other on this planet we call Earth.
In this sense, responsibility is a spiritual concept!
VI. A Scientific Paradigm for Metaphysical Exploration
The following statements are intended to be founding principles for the study of the Science of Consciousness:
1. All existence is “energy” vibrating at frequencies beyond the material world consciousness and its measurement instrumentation.
2. Energy exists as entities, phenomena, states of being, experiences, or planes of consciousness, that have distinctly different vibrational frequencies.
3. The variety of ‘energy existences” are aware of their inherent interconnectedness as One.
4. The study of various phenomena such as channeling, creating, introspecting, intuiting, as metaphysical experiences expands the scientist’s consciousness as wisdom, and simultaneously human collective consciousness.
5. Other metaphysical phenomena, such as healing, PK, remote viewing, and teleportation, demonstrate extra sensory perception (ESP) affecting material world phenomena.
6. Energy conversions can occur between the metaphysical and physical domains as well as within the metaphysical domain.
7. A metaphysical experience is “being one” with the phenomena.
VII. A Metaphysical Experiment (Experience)
A) Experimental Description
An example of how a metaphysical experiment can be conducted is my experience of channeling. My particular experience of channeling involves the reception of “thought impressions” that easily translate into words, phrasings, sentences, and paragraphs in written form. The “thought impressions” are received in complete wholes, such as a sentence, a paragraph, or a complete book. Then, I proceed to write the thought impression in a linear manner, as logically developed paragraphs of a document.
I attribute the source of my “thought impressions” to entities of higher intelligence that I have chosen to describe as “spirit guides.”  I have meta-experienced fourteen different spirit guides since I began channeling the night of October 3, 1985. As I transitioned to more advanced guides, I was taught how to receive multiple—two, three, and four—channeled messages, simultaneously. It’s like receiving (processing) four different radio stations simultaneously, and understanding them all. I have simply learned how to write the first sentence of two, three, or four paragraphs, then the second sentence sequentially, then the third, etc., until the total transmission is recorded.
B) Experimental Data Collection—“The Transmission”
My experience is initiated either by a “spontaneous realization” that I need to write “something,” or by a request for knowledge, wisdom, or some creative insight about a subject. The following transmission was spontaneously communicated to me by a spirit guide I (arbitrarily) call, “Mentor.” This name was also channeled to me. Mentor has “male energy” and has never experienced being human on planet Earth.
December 23, 2000
Reality is what we deem it to be. It is the fabrication of our individual and collective imaginations, as a result of manipulating consciousness. Consciousness is like the “clay” we use to literally create anything we desire.
“The nature of being (in human terms) is experience.”
Exploration beyond your human reality (into the metaphysical) is an infinitesimal step into the exploration of consciousness. “Projecting” the inherent nature of your human consciousness beyond the metaphysical provides a whole new world of experience (exploration). Particularly, since even at this level, you create your reality.
You might wonder, what is just beyond that which you call metaphysical. Using the words of your previous guide, Aescyleus; imagination-exploration. Since time no longer exists in this “realm of reality,” exploration (experience in human terms) and imagination (the ability to create) “exist” (be), simultaneously. They exist as an “eternal dance,” since time and space do not exist (in human terms).
The inherent nature of consciousness—and correspondingly any reality—is dynamic evolution. Dynamic evolution means “ever” changing to forms of higher intelligence (as wisdom) ¾ a greater in-depth understanding of itself beyond the reality it is presently experiencing or “exploring-imagining.”
As each succeeding “realm of reality” is “experienced” (explored), the prior one is realized to have been a “projection” of the succeeding one.
The channeled transmission above, lends itself to a variety of interpretations and conclusions. The first is that the reality we experience is fabricated from our own collective manipulation of consciousness. Our reality is “something” (physical form) and consciousness is “no-thing” (potential for expression). We then proceed to experience our five-senses reality; often as though “it is happening to us,” rather than, we created it in the first place for the experiences we are having!
The second interpretation is that the nature of being human is experience; more specifically, five-senses experiences. The unique ways we interpret our experiences “gives rise” to our reality. Reality is not objective and independent of our collective interpretations and agreements. Even physical reality, although apparently objective, may have been collectively created from a significantly greater sphere of consciousness.
Further realizations from this transmission imply that our proposed study of metaphysics is but an “infinitesimal” step involving the exploration of consciousness. That a realm of consciousness beyond the metaphysical involves imagination and exploration. Although, these terms do not accurately describe the “meta-experienced” phenomena of this realm, they do give a sense of what one’s projected consciousness experiences.
Imagination is the instance-by-instance creation of one’s reality and exploration is the simultaneous experience of that reality with senses that go beyond the physical and metaphysical we have previously described (page 6). However, this realm of expanded consciousness is available to anyone by the projection of human consciousness. The learning that is captured by such projections is brought back to one’s human consciousness as wisdom. The resulting view of human reality is seen as completely restructured leading to significantly greater awareness, understanding, and detachment.
Human reality is viewed as dominantly a representation of that created by one’s projected consciousness (higher self). As such, much of life is subsequently viewed as illusion. Illusion simply means a representation (or its fabrications) is not considered to be the real thing. For example, the human body is a representation of one’s spiritual consciousness. Hence, the expression,
“We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
Furthermore, our ability to master human reality is dependent on our collective ability to acquire the wisdom of superordinate realities. Thus, Einstein’s statement,
The world that we have made as
a result of the level of thinking we
have done thus far, creates problems
that we cannot solve at the
level we have created them.”
Thus, human mastery of physical reality, in the best interests of all inhabitants, is dependent upon our ability to balance the applications and governance of knowledge (of the mind) and wisdom (of the spirit), respectively.
It has been shown that the Science of Consciousness—study of the non-material world—can be systematically studied in a similar manner to the study of physical science. The skills, as well as the experimental processes, are significantly different from those of Newtonian-Cartesian science. The key experimental (experiential) skill is the ability to create a channel from the bodymind consciousness to the unlimited consciousness of the non-material world. Several techniques of study are discussed in this publication as well as a proposed paradigm characterizing the study of consciousness. Finally, an actual experiment (experience) of channeling is used to demonstrate the format as well as the value that results from the systematic study of the metaphysical realm of consciousness.
