Welcome back Jacques:
Here is an apercu written by L. Maurer alon the lines you seem interested in:
SCIENCE AND THEOSOPHY ( L M )
HPB had no knowledge of the empirical (material) science that, today,
still hasn't answered any of the real "hard" questions -- such as the true
relationship between consciousness, mind, and matter -- that the ancient
philosophers answered thoroughly long before the SD was written.
In fact, while modern physics has made great strides in understanding the
mechanics of the outer physical world, they haven't the faintest idea about the
true nature of the inner world.
Sure, the understanding of "how (physical) things work" has given us lots of
mechanical tools and entertaining toys to play with, and drugs to keep us
alive and soothe our psyched-out minds -- but what has any of that that done for
helping us live our lives more fully and understand ourselves better?
No matter how far science has progressed, they still haven't found any of the
answers that theosophy has given us to achieve self-realization -- which is
far more important than feeding our physical wants and personal pleasures, or
controlling our lives solely for the sake of money, power and greed.
If you dig deep enough into the metaphysical teachings in the SD,
you will find that everything that science has achieved, based on the theories
of relativity and quantum physics (which were completely presaged by HPB) has
done nothing to further our inner human development.
In fact, the theories of relativity, photoelectrically, quanta, and even
superstrings -- with its multidimensional [3+7] hyperspaces and M-branes
[coadunate but not consubstantial spherical fields] which almost identically emulates
the "wheels within wheels" teachings in the SD -- still hasn't caught up with
the deeper metaphysical teachings in the SD... Although they are getting closer
and closer. Unfortunately, since they still haven't found out the whys and
wherefores of consciousness and the root of mind, modern science is still far
away from achieving their goal of a true "theory of everything."
But, eventually, when they finally realize that consciousness, along with
mind (as a separate entity in itself) is the fundamental cause of everything and
was existent long before our present material universe evolved) -- science
will reach an understanding of the truths of metaphysics (as clearly outlined in
the SD) -- that is actually the way the real universe works in its
interdependent entirety... Not merely the way its particular and superficial physical
nature works. Which, after all, is only a small part of that true reality...
That considers consciousness and mind as separate and even more important
elements of our real nature. And, without which, our present physical world would
just be a temporary and meaningless glitch in the vast scope of universal
What good is knowing how the physical universe works, if we don't know
ourselves? ... Or, how the conscious macrocosm (of which we are the analogous
microcosm) involved and evolved in the first place?
So, what does physical science have to do with human evolution? Can their
present genetic knowledge create a better human being? Can it change the course
of individual karma? Does it even understand karma?
This is not to say that the investigation of the physical world isn't important. But,
what has that got to do with the universal truths that theosophy has already
thoroughly examined and given us all the tools we need to take care of our
individual and even (if we look deep enough into its teachings) the evolution of
So, how does science add anything useful toward achieving those aims? Does
having cell phones, television, and the Internet teach us anything about our
human nature or the nature of the eternal realities that we all are all
destined to face, now, and in the future?
Why would Masters have to communicate further? -- when the whole story was
already known to them and outlined for us in the SD? All the rest is just a filling
in of the details, of which physical science is just a small part of the whole picture.
Besides, what makes you think the Masters have stopped communicating? Some
theosophists, I'm sure, have found the "Master within" (as HPB said they would
if they kept following the path she laid down) and those Masters certainly are
still communicating with them.
Those "secrets," I'm also sure, weren't meant to be given out (and couldn't
be written down, even if we wanted to.) Besides, with respect to my ABC theory
(which is a sideways look at the true "scientific" reality -- if I showed the proof that would
make science unequivocally accept that theory, such a proof might end up
killing them... (Either physically, or by taking away all the "need to know" that
has served as their motive to keep on living).
One nuclear physicist (an A-bomb designer … now deceased) who
helped with this theory and examined a proposed design of an experiment
to prove it, said that the design, while technically feasible, could easily turn into
what he called a "creation bomb." (So, I've destroyed all the plans for such a
proof, and am content to let the physical scientists bumble their way closer to
the ultimate truth all by themselves.:-)
No doubt there is much more knowledge to be discovered.. And, I'm all for it to
keep the scientists alive and busy. But, it would be nice if you could tell us
what such knowledge of the physical details has to do with our own inner
development? Isn't that what theosophy is all about?
Q. -- Since the Masters are not there to spoon feed us the knowledge of the
>Universe, we should use our tools, and our minds to try to evolve
>further, just as evidently they did.
Yes, that's exactly what theosophy was given to us for. But, its the
evolution of the soul as an inner process, not an outer one, that they were teaching.
It is the inner tools and the higher intuitive mind that they were speaking
to... Not, the physical instruments of our senses or our rational, lower mind.
Hasn't the whole story of universal knowledge already been thoroughly
explained in the SD? Why would the Master have to "spoon feed us" any more of it?
So, what is it that science can do to help us evolve? All I can see is that
it has done so far, is to give us more misery and grief by making us wage and
consumer slaves to feed the industries they develop, making us into fat and
effete couch potatoes, feeding our lower natures with all the tools we need to
destroy our ecological and biospheric balance, stressing our lives still
further with all the new degenerate diseases such stress of "economic slavery"
causes, and gave us more efficient ways to kill each other. Even the food that
they produce by their "scientific methods" is becoming more and more devoid of
essential nutrients. And, all that their scientific medicine, with its money
making pharmaceuticals and boutique surgeries has done, is to turn what should
be "Health Care" into "Sick Care." Where's the evolution in that? Seems more
like devolution to me.
When science finally admits that theosophy has the true answer to how the
universe really works, and their followers who believe in them change their minds
and give up their materialism and begin searching for their own inner truths
-- then science will have done us some good.
But, until then, science has nothing to say that is useful toward achieving
the real evolution of the soul -- which is what theosophy is all about.
Right, but the fundamental teaching of theosophy was completed then [in 1891].
And, if science keeps on going along on its merry materialistic way without
accepting and incorporating in its findings the knowledge of theosophy that has
already been given to us in full -- the world might really end sooner than we think.
SCIENCE – MODERN.DOC
Yes, I agree that having a section on the BLAVATSKY.NET site that looks at
the progress of modern and post modern SCIENCE and considers its confirmations
of theosophical metaphysics, as well as helps us examine their contradiction of
the more or less false metaphysics (along with the religious interpretations)
who have tried in the past, and are continuously attempting to turn theosophy into an organized,
hierarchically ruled and personalized messianic religion (in direct contradiction of
the original teachers, not to mention its metaphysics) -- is a very good idea.
In this light, interpreting the theosophical metaphysics scientifically from
an impersonal theoretical point of view, and comparing such possibilities with
the developments of contemporary science in all its various disciplines,
including physiology, chemistry, biology and physics -- for purposes of individual
study or discussion on the various theosophical forums -- could also be very
One eventuality to look forward to is; That when theosophical metaphysics
will be ultimately confirmed by Science and all of humanity can, on their
authority, accept that its imperatives, such as Karma, Reincarnation, Universal
Brotherhood, Altruism, etc., are "facts in Nature" -- there will be no further need
for any "organized religions," or even theosophical organizations or
"societies," for that matter.
Such comparative study would also serve to aid each of us in our individual
search for self realization or enlightenment -- (depending on our own
visualization capabilities and control of our will based on self devised and self
determined efforts, such as thorough study and practice of the Jnana and Rajah
Yoga's recommended by HPB) -- to awaken a better understanding of those "occult"
(esoteric) aspects of theosophical metaphysics that can only be gained

ON THE ANTIQUITY OF THEOSOPHY
Recent postings concerning setting up a department in BLAVATSKY.NET seem to
draw our attention to the need for regularly comparing THEOSOPHY withal
discoveries and changes in Science and world thought.
We all have a lot to learn and are learning new things every day.
There are no finalities, but only an ever-focused sharpening of understanding.
We, the entire Universe, ever pursues a common and conjoint path of
discovery, so while recording facts and events, our final conclusions ever
ride along with us, and have to remain as flexible hypotheses -- they help
us understand until they for lack of finality, break-down and have to be
reframed. The general plan is there all right, but as we all progress
through time and events, we reframe the conclusions we will have to
meet in the future.
There is no “stasis” (except some assumed ones) anywhere. What are those?
1 the UNIVERSE exists. (On many planes of substance and sensitivity)
2 we as OBSERVERS exist – we said to be are immortals -- no beginning or end to our work -- seems plausible. Bodies wear out and die, but Universal Law (Karma) provides us with new ones, and so on and on… (we, as Essential Beings, are not physical nor mental, but of some kind of SPIRITUAL SUBSTANCE that survives the continual “ravages of change,” in its correlates of time, and alterations in space.
3. the ongoing relations between the UNIVERSE and OURSELVES are an essential part of this timeless and limitless REALITY. In the SECRET DOCTRINE they are said to be seven-fold [ see S D I, 157-8; II, 296 ].
ON THE ANTIQUITY OF THEOSOPHY
We may assume that you have visited this Theosophy Study Discussion List
because you hope that there may be answers from students of Theosophy which
you could compare with the thesis you seem to have already set up.
You have said:
” I read your interesting mail with some delight. Yet again, when confronted
with anything that goes against Theosophical thinking or asked to use
sources other than Theosophy to give your thoughts weight you resort to the
age old argument of "You don't agree so you don’t understand". “
The present day scientist and Theosophical students – and we are all
students -- study the information provided and compare them.
Our “Science” tries to explain by hypothesis and theories what may have been
the “past” of present day observations (of course limited by the
availability of artifacts and relics, and their present knowledge of the
LAWS, so far detected and observed to be operating, in many correlated
departments of Nature).
No one will dispute facts. One proviso in this work of scientific discovery
and identification is the one of extreme honesty – no secrets, no hiding --
is that all facts and discoveries (anomalies especially) are to be made
available for all to see and draw conclusions about.
>From evidence occasionally made available, it would seem that on occasion,
certain facts (and artifacts) are removed from the glare of publicity – and
we might conclude that this is done because they could upset or question
some well-established hypothesis or theory. If true, this is not strict
“honesty.” Where has the “public” been invited to review the “facts?” This I
have looked for but rarely if ever found in a systematic, scientific way.
As a result, I, for one distrust scientific hypotheses, and any kind of
pontification. There are in Science no “authorities” – only seekers,
observers and honest, accurate reporters.
As a case in point, let me refer you to the voluminous work HIDDEN
ARCHEOLOGY (by Cremo and Johnson) published in San Diego, and a second
volume issue two years later, in which they document the reception by
scientists of their first book and the “facts” it displays.
As we are speaking of disagreements and anomalous discoveries, several
authors down the years have pointed to these and (to my knowledge) have
never been thoroughly refuted by Science – or given prominence -- to my
We may take the writings of John Anthony West, Von Danni ken, Emanuel
Velikovsky, Charles Fort, H. P. Blavatsky. These are four authors, who in
their writings, articles, books -- have challenged – not Science’s facts --
but their interpretations of the past as they have reconstructed it in their
widely accepted (but rarely re-investigated) theories and hypotheses.
There are in existence challenging anomalies that demand a review of the
older theories – after all, a “theory, or, an hypothesis” are not inflexible
and are always subject to revision as new facts are discovered.
In my opinion, the exposing of challenges to scientific “hypothesis and
theories” show us, who are thinkers and observers, that they are not
invariably of the highest value (although they are often taught as “truths).
They cannot be adopted or treated as “authoritative.”
There are differences to be investigated.
One may well ask: Why is it a fact that there are disagreements? We present
our views and findings, you have your own to compare. Naturally we will
present to you what we know in terms drawn from Theosophy as you have
approached us to find out what THEOSOPHY says.
As to providing you with information from “other systems,” while this is
available, we have not all done that extensive work and concentrated it. I
believe it will prove difficult (but ought to be initiated), as the
fundamental Theosophical approach is: that it, Theosophy, is a very ancient
system of continued Scientific research and observation in all departments
of Nature, and of the world religions, philosophies, and also this
observation and recording in old as well as modern Sciences, are derived
As an example, in H P B’s The SECRET DOCTRINE you will find it stated that
the doctrines discussed have an antiquity going back some at least 18
million years. HPB states those are actually physically in the possession
of the “Masters of Wisdom.” That exceeds by a great many years, and cycles
of years, any concept of time that the research done by organized Science
in the past 300 years -- (I mean, since “Orientalism,” began with the
scientists that Napoleon 1 had accompany him to Egypt in the very early 19th
It is of course very annoying to find that the ancients (India, China,
Egypt, Iran, the Incas and Mayans, etc…) had made discoveries and had
observed the movement of the stars for millennia before our present
“discoveries.” In many cases we (our Science) corroborates those, and in
some we have disagreement. The main point and attitude we, as
investigators and Scientists, ought to always adopt ought to be: Lets
verify. Let’s freely admit that we have discovered evidence that shows
antiquity, in many parts of the world, had processes and used materials they
were able to manufacture for which we have yet to discover the secrets.
There is no “shame” in this, but any claims to novelty disappear in the
rightful process of verification.
Theosophical sources are the writings of Mme. Blavatsky: books and
articles, most of which can be studied and understood by anyone.. Also, to
some extent, they have to be individually supplemented with first hand
observation and inquiries over years.
Neither you, nor we (as students of Theosophy), are the final arbiters in
this. We do make comparisons. Some we understand and others we do not. We
are continually learning, all of us.
But, as I understand it, it is facts that we are looking for, as well as,
the supporting of mental acuity and freedom of thought.
Those who worship at the shrine of TRUTH and FACT are contemptuous of no
source of information, nor of any anomalies, or of contemporary or earlier
work done by any one. We seek for traces of similarity, of analogy, or
Look through ISIS UNVEILED, (by HPB) if you wish to see what facts and
events are brought forward for consideration there. It tends to point to
important evens and anomalies that the Science of her days (and now, still)
need to verify. On publication, ISIS UNVEILED created a sensation, and in a
week all copies of the book were sold. It has been kept in print since
Eleven years later The SECRET DOCTRINE was issued;. There you have a
synopsis and review of the Occult records of the history of our Earth’s
formation and the evolution of mankind. These are meticulously contrasted
with Science and its theories as known and taught in her time of writing.
Some of those are still maintained. In many cases, and most often in terms
of cycles and time–periods, the SECRET DOCTRINE does not agree with the
current theories and hypotheses of modern Orientalism and Science. But that
does not make them wrong, or extraordinarily fanciful, or suspect. [see S D
II, pp. 78-80]
We (as students of Theosophy) take the position that NATURE (or Deity)
already contains everything. It is Nature as a fully conscious and
intelligent lawful ENTITY of enormous size – which, as a whole, supports
every detail of our needs (as well as those of all other beings in
existence). It gives us, not only our “life,” but that of all ‘beings’ that
make up our total environment. Law and Laws alone govern every aspect of
being and manifestation. Our Science studies those. NATURE is the universal
shrine of our common worship. Its organization ranges through seven stages
between the limits of INFINITY and NOUGHT. It is a calculus made living and
perfectly obvious to the seeker.
All living beings, of whatever kind, are supported by the united processes
of laws that Nature has already in place. [ Chemistry, physics, mathematics,
astronomy, biology, medicine, sociology, linguistics, politics, history,
etc… are as old as thinking man -- a period said to comprise at least 18
million years. [see S D I, p. 150 footnote ]
All the discoveries of Science are simply the revealing and verifying of
what is already there laid down and operating under Nature’s control and
supervision. There is no “novelty” only DISCOVERY, and verification of
Our present knowledge has, and is, gradually being built up. It is NOT
built on the basis that any one individual “knows best,” or knows
“everything,” and therefore challenging words like “lies,”
“misunderstandings,” “charlatanry,” “fraud,” etc. are not used, unless there
is verified evidence, at FIRST HAND of their existence. Their use in inquiry
and conversation implies to me, that certain judgments have been made.
Permit me to question their validity.
If you have read the literature of Theosophy, then, in a broad-minded, free
capacity to embrace information, let me ask what are your specific
objections to statements made there. Inquiry starts with dialog. But if
there is a pre-judged position assumed by either party, at that point
inquiry and exchange ceases. I then becomes argument – and “opinions” as
viewed by some impartial third party” are made to emerge and strand on
whatever basis they deserve.
Incidentally, have you have read Sylvia Cranston’s biography of H.P.B.
(Tarcher, New York) as it answers seriously and with documented facts all
the innuendos cast at this life and work of this remarkable Personage
If permitted, let me ask, if you have read ISIS UNVEILED or The SECRET
DOCTRINE? I am interested in the opinions you have to offer, and their
If one has had the benefit of a wide acquaintance with Science and Academic
research in general, one may find that the most valuable attitudes among
such wonderful and dedicated people can be classed as humility, diligence,
and unprejudiced research – and of course, this has to include a wide
research, and a good knowledge of all adjacent disciplines.
Those who are at the forefront of discovery in Science, Orientalism, and
Philosophy ask probing questions, seek for facts, and do not make
pronouncements, designed to support their views, guesses and opinions of the
past or present. To take but a few we have at the cutting edge of Science:
Hawkings, Penrose, Sheldrake, Margulis, Mandelbrot, Viswanath Diwakar, etc.
Theosophy fills gaps that Science is still trying to bridge, and for which
(and it is a lack of specific knowledge) it has erected “possible views” of
plausible causes and procedures in the establishing of a reasonable
“history,” and calls them: theories and hypotheses, which are found to
frequently change as the history of Science reveals, when new evidence
It would seem to me, that you may have adopted some conclusions which today
are acceptable in your “Discipline.” And it also seems to me that you are
seeking to verify and prove your pre-judged position. To me, this is most
commendable as it will enable you to make strict scientific research
You have obviously made a unique study -- leading to specialization. You
have therefore assumed that the solutions (theories and hypotheses) accepted
by your “authorities” and adopted by you are correct. But are you not in
the process of proving them?
In contrast to you, I prefer to call myself a “generalist.” I listen to all
sides and take notes and reserve assuming any position until it is clear we
are all considering such facts and reports as are available.
I try to cover a number of inter-related disciplines, since it is evident
that Nature has interlocking and cohesive systems in place. For example, on
careful examination I believe we might say: Nature (taken as a whole)
appears to be infinitely sensitive and responsive to the needs of the
individual components of its many systems. One can see order and precision
in the motions, and influence surrounding an atom, a crystal, an element or
a chemical compound, a plant, an animal, a man, a mathematical equation, or
a chemical, physical or astronomical problem -- or take the remarkable
advance in astro-physics and look at a Solar System and the large number of
interacting Galaxies that the use of the Hubble telescope has revealed in
all directions. Is the Universe in fact an enormous SUN ? Are we bathed
(as unit parts of its inhabitants) with a constant stream of the most varied
radiations? We live on Earth, but our “heads” are in those far stars. Are we
then to limit and sequester our knowledge? What roads of endeavour lead to
Law and Laws are found to rule everywhere. Science depends on the honesty
and accuracy of Nature in all its works near and far. Science makes its
declarations based on the facts it discovers. It chooses NATURE as the
final authority. It says that any discovery can be replicated and
demonstrated by any one else. It is the universality of facts that is
valuable, and not the individual opinions of the discoverers.
In the orient, the oldest texts were transmitted verbally with great control
over sound and inflection because (and I have tapes that demonstrate this)
concealed in the sound were some of the “codes” whereby secret knowledge was
transmitted. The superficial sounds in ancient verses were made to present
a coherency that served as a kind of “blind” which diverted and deflected
the attention of a newcomer or a non-initiate.
There are certain euphonic similarities which, studied in terms of actual
linguistic distribution (present and past) are said to have a relationship
-- but your study and research says that is not so. It remains to find out
what is correct. [ see SECRET DOCTRINE (on language and codes: I, pp.
269, 307-25, 362, 568; II, pp, 198-201, 334-5, 364, 560, ]
Again, neither of us are either right or wrong, but we seek to find out
where the greater accuracy is. Your research and mine may overlap in
places, but they are not invariably coincident, and certainly neither of us
can assume that their position and our particular observations are
necessarily final, and the statements made by the other are idiotic. And as
I understand it, in a life time of dealing with experts in all departments
of Scientific research, prejudice is usually careless of the findings of
other disciplines, unless the researcher has a rare and inquisitive (even
intuitive) nature and is determined to find the TRUTH by any and every
means, and accept no conclusions unless they are proven to general
satisfaction. We accept nothing and reject nothing. The future will teach
Theosophy does not have to be moved “forward.”
It is already descriptive of all observable phenomena, as it deals with and
reports on NATURE and her laws and history. It has always done this and
reports facts observed in the past and ascribes causes which our modern
Science is yet to uncover.
Our eyes embrace everything in Nature because nature makes it available to
those who are constructively its servants. We look for the ethical and
moral effect of any laws or action which we might bring about when using
Nature’s laws. Science has yet to take the clue and work with that aspect
It doesn't matter if Theosophy is 'real' or not. It does a fine job of
bringing people together and doing good works. What I do object to is the
indefensible idea that it is based in its entirety on ancient books (written
we are told by Atlanteans).
I recognize that the antiquity of information held by Theosophy is a
surprise to most scientists.
They are also surprised to learn that in India there are thousands of
manuscripts other than the Vedas and the Upanishads, that deal with all
aspects of science, mechanism, chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics,
medicine, psychology, etc.. and those are under the care of the hereditary
families of Brahmins, who guard them, and are not at all interested in
letting the modern Academicians know anything about them.
In The SECRET DOCTRINE you will find that WISDOM is not solely derived from
the Atlanteans, but that there have been races older and wiser than they.
Those claims mean nothing. In the “here and how” what are we doing ? what
are we learning? what are we verifying?
Universal brotherhood a fact in nature does have a downside!
Based on 18 months of Envisat observations, this high-resolution global atmospheric map of nitrogen dioxide pollution makes clear just how human activities impact air quality.
ESA's ten-instrument Envisat, the world's largest satellite for environmental monitoring, was launched in February 2002. Its onboard Scanning Imaging Absorption Spectrometer for Atmospheric Chartography (SCIAMACHY) instrument records the spectrum of sunlight shining through the atmosphere. These results are then finely sifted to find spectral absorption 'fingerprints' of trace gases in the air.
CERN to Probe Life, the Universe and Everything
I agree and think you are right -- if more scientists are honest and give
exactly what they see to be considered, then many inaccuracies occasioned by
trying to make selected answers fit old accepted but prejudiced theories
will be done away with.
The real problem is the atmosphere of authoritative ignorance, and the false
desire to protect that ignorance by the use of invective, misdirection and suppression of truth.
That is a large accusation and not all are guilty. But many feel insecure and defensive --
and unable to shake loose of the shackles of the teachings they imbibed
earlier. The Past overshadows the present. How to get out from under that?
However, as I look at some of the evidence Odin is digging up I see there is
a large area of work still to be straightened out.
Did you ever get to read FORBIDDEN ARCHAEOLOGY by Cremo and Johnson (?) or
was it Thompson ? Published some years ago (5 or 6) -- on archaeological
digs and findings that showed that humans had lived in the Americas long
before the generally accepted and supposed first period -- in San Diego.
Then a succeeding book came out giving a report on the response they had
received from the scientific community.
There have been a succession of writers who have achieved notice who have
drawn attention to anomalies and have in effect asked for explanations:
HPB, Charles Fort, Emanuel Velikovsky, Von Danigen, (?) John Anthony West, ... Their
works ought to be read, and, again summarized -- and if any later findings have emerged
they ought to be catalogued and noted.
A book doing that would become a “best seller” almost immediately.
What about the five pointed pyramid on Mars and the human face when the sun
highlights it? Buried? Forgotten?
What about more recent findings
concerning under-water cities off West Cuba, the Bahamas, and reports of
Pyramids in the ocean off the West Azores ? Relicts of Atlantis and Lemuria
Someone ought to catalog all HPB set down in ISIS UNVEILED and the SECRET
DOCTRINE on evidence found and known in her days, and then carefully add to that all the
subsequent findings.. I think the evidence would be overwhelming. But, perhaps not popular.
Remember, historically, the publisher Macmillan's who had published Velikovsky's works was
forced by economic pressure from the academic world, to give (sell) the copyright to another
publisher and dissociate themselves from his queries,
if they desired to retain their position as a reputable supplier of
"authentic text-books." I used to have copies of the various exchanges in
the press made at that time, and all this came out in the open.
Of course no one can prove anything to another, but they can offer evidence.
And keep pressure going so that some attention is continuously placed on
If the response is either inactivity or negative, then the old barriers
persist and human advance is delayed.
This has been the fate of the SECRET DOCTRINE and its marvelous
Your offer to help is generous and valuable. Personally my energy is now so
low I can hardly find time for the little writing I do.
I also see that Reed Carson seems favourable to research along the lines of
supportive discovery, and Odin helps.
But, health-wise I am now so unable .... So I pass what seem to be useful
Subject: Theos-World Re: Re: QUANTUM and EVOLUTION ?
To answer your question...
I was speaking of the "mass media" where any
useful dissemination of the theosophical metaphysical ideas and principles
might be exposed, and that might provoke further scientific investigation.
Such information could be expressed through either books or articles, but
preferably, documentaries and feature films that could speak to the amateur
and professional scientists and technologists, as well as the interested lay
This, of course, depends on our individual creative efforts --
which must have behind it a credibility that could speak directly in the
language of current science... But, in a manner that that didn't go beyond plain
vernacular English that could be understood by everyone.
However, didn't HPB say that the scientists will eventually reach the
metaphysical truths for themselves, and that we should direct our attention
toward writing the Secret Doctrine in our "own words" -- so as to "spread
broadcast" the scientific understanding of karma and reincarnation to
ordinary people "in the language of this Age"?
And, shouldn't that language be that vernacular English expressed orally,
graphically, and audio-visually through the mass media?
So, unless there are some among us who have the access to those media, along
with the necessary skills of writing, directing, producing, etc., plus the
metaphysical knowledge to express the theosophical science in the common
language of this age -- I suppose, there's really not much the rest of us can do but
"wait and see."
But, just in case there is anyone or group out there with a good movie idea
based on an attractive and interesting plot that might be able to
disseminate the scientific truths of theosophy -- I would be happy to offer whatever
advice or assistance I can -- based on my many years of creative, technical,
scientific, and production experience in the communication arts industries
(as well as my lifetime's study of esoteric and occult metaphysical science
and philosophy). See
Incidentally, I also have a movie series project, "The Solar World
Chronicles" (over twenty years in development that the state of the moviemaking art has
now caught up with :-) following in the footsteps of the Star Trek and Star
Wars genre -- that, besides exciting, adventurous and entertaining story
lines, has a direct relationship to the next hundred year "action" cycle of the
Theosophical Movement, and demonstrates as well as explains the truths of

>Subject: Theos-World Re: QUANTUM and EVOLUTION ?
The only comments I might have is that the research done in Russia appears
to be bringing us close to a final scientific proof of the unity of nature
and the linkages between the various fields of consciousness with the all
encompassing universal memory of the Akasha -- as described in theosophy,
and more or less scientifically presented in my
ABC holographic fractal field theory linking consciousness, mind, and body on all levels of
universal involution and evolution.
It appears that their work on the DNA wave computer concept coupled with
the multidimensional field theories of Superstring/M-branes (all framed
within my ABC theory) may be the final "new scientific paradigm" to serve as the
bridge needed to link these metaphysical theories of theosophy,
that use deduction from principles to arrive at the particulars, with the inductive theories
of physics (quantum, relativity, etc.) that can only reductively approach the
ultimate reality as close as the smallest particle they can measure with
their physical instruments.
These new theories fill in the gap between their "quanta" and the zero-point
of primal space, and will ultimately prove the
analogous and corresponding unity of all things with the Absolute, as well
as their holographic and coenergetic interrelationships with each other on all
levels of consciousness.
As it is, these new findings have already begun to shake up the scientific
establishment, and change some of their fundamental beliefs... Although,
there are still many of them struggling to justify their old reductive
Much like the Newtonian classicists fought against the theory of relativity
and the unity of matter and energy -- that Einstein, apparently, pulled
straight out of the SD. (Not to denigrate his brilliance in devising the complex
mathematics that justified and proved it. :-)
All this is the beginning of the inevitability that all the physiological
biochemical-physical sciences and theosophical metaphysics will meet on
a common ground in this century, as predicted by HPB.
All we need do now is wait and see, as well as do the best we can to point
out that connection in the mass media (the "language of this age") -- so
that all people will eventually believe it in both their hearts and minds,
and begin to act accordingly.
As for Edison with respect to Tesla, I think Edison was much overrated, and
that their relationship was much like that of a practical engineer of great
cleverness (and questionable ethics) versus a true visionary theoretical
genius/scientist/idealist of much greater brilliance of mind. Tesla was
also much more of a true "theosophist" of high moral and ethical character
than Edison was.
Edison and his close friend Ford were both exploiters and racists (as were
those "robber barons" who financed them). Judging by their actions, in
spite of their supposed membership in the TS, I think they were
theosophists in name only, and were intellectually interested only in black magic
mysticism and psychic phenomena -- that was much in vogue among the wealthy
cocktail party dilettantes of their time.
In my view (speaking as both an engineer/scientist as well as a theosophist)
Edison was an exploitative entrepreneur who picked the brains of those much
more brilliant than himself (not to mention continually trying to discredit
them) -- while Tesla was a true visionary and brilliant scientist/philosopher,
of great ethics and honor, who was blind-sided by his more pragmatic (and
greedy) colleagues and patrons, all of whom ripped off and denigrated
everything he ever accomplished and, in the process, drove him into poverty
and obscurity until his untimely death. Read about it and weep.
RE: Discussions and proving.
Adding to B N Science section
I agree -- so let the "thinkers" show others where they secured their "help."
Now where do we start?
Should we not make that which is useful available to others?
Several ways occur to me:
1. Republish the "original teachings" on Internet.
2. Answer inquiries and point to solutions that rest on Theosophical
Discuss these freely.
3. A possible third is to critically review current writings and add to
our accumulation of "proofs"
1. Scientific reports, and discoveries
2. Psychological studies and discoveries
3. Religious statements and trends.
4. Methods of study of feeling, emoton, thought, logic, free-will,
choosing, and, seeking for common denominators all may accept.
5. Discussing all aspects of information freely.
I think it is also called quantum theory and its nature is also called
I can see that from a strictly material point of view.
In "Psychic and Noetic Action" [H P B Articles, II, p. 7] H P B says that
the physical aspect of Nature ends with the "molecule."
Beyond and within that lies the realm of FORCES AND ENERGIES -- of atoms and sub-atoms, etc., and there she says, begins the plane of the ”ASTRAL LIGHT and ASTRAL FORMS” --
Energies and Powers -- but those, as far as I can see, are at best, substances more refined (?), and therefore not tangible to our physical senses without the interpretation of the finer vibrations of electro-magnetic energy as detectors.
>From the theosophical point of view, they may also relate to energic planes of life-defining and inter-relative forces that correlate every definite “form” in the Universe (Earth), (and their underlying energic causes) and perhaps, man’s physical body, complex as it is. These would then be the planes of Prana (breath of life) and Jiva (or Life-energy).
But I may be wrong.
I have been, like you following the developments in science along these
I find these are suggestive and encouraging.
Now I notice in computer technology that both quantum theory and indeterminacy are aspects of mathematical and actual, physical substance work in which they hope to be able to make still more speedy and larger computers compressed into ever smaller physical space.

<<Certainly at the level of sub-atomics we are dealing more with forces and
CENTERS OF FORCE than anything else. But what stability can be established for manipulation? >> Dal,
at the subatomic level it is more like probability of force than a
center. Scientists observe subatomic particles using a probabilistic
equation called the wave function, which addresses particles as if they
These waves are spread out over distance, and so when we look for an electron, for example, we say that "it is probably in this areas as
opposed to other areas"
When the wave function is translated into our everyday world, it collapses, and this "collapse of the wave function" results in uncertainty and probability.
From: Leon Maurer
My comments were based mostly on the scientific reviews and interpretations
and conclusions made about the book by so called "peer reviewers" -- some
negative, that pointed out the experimental flaws.
I also found their interpretation mostly based on materialistic concepts that imply that consciousness and resultant mental concepts and psychic or spiritual tendencies are of a material causation -- that directly contradicts both theosophy and my personal conclusions based on the theory of ABC, and even some of the later DNA holographic wave field theories and corroborative experiments made by Russian scientists.
Although I don't doubt the possibility -- which most of these reductive
scientists overlook -- that what is thought in the mind that leads to religious
tendencies can, in fact, alter the genes expressed by the DNA.
More or less agreeing with Buddha's statement that "everything we are is the result of what we have thought." That idea of downward causation from higher fields also seems to agree with, besides theosophy, the morphogenetic field evolutionary theory of Sheldrake as well as similar conclusions of the DNA-wave theorists.
Thus, the implication in Hamer's research conclusions that the DNA is the
cause of these tendencies is highly misleading, and heavily biased toward proving materialism as the only reality -- i.e., matter as the primal cause.
Although, his correlation's of particular genes with such tendencies is not in
serious doubt. However, this is similar to the "neural correlates of consciousness" by the neuroscientists -- that also confuses the direction of causation between consciousness, mind and matter.
That is why I compared his "God-gene" theory with the earlier correlative
"scientologies" some of which have been discredited, but which may still have
some superficial and simplistic correlative values.

Yes it is interesting to visit.
In the THEOSOPHICAL literature it speaks of the mind, needing a concept or a procedure, sends out "a finger of thought" and, if powerful enough, it impinges on an answer in the universal astral light (the record of all events and things) and can bring it back. I wonder. It must have something to do with the character and predisposition of the person, as well as Karma in general. In the case of Edison so many inventions and developments have come from his work.
I have also puzzled over what HPB meant when in the SECRET DOCTRINE she wrote that 1887/8 would see a vast rent made in the curtain of materialism and there would be a change in the outlook of purely material science.
I found that in 1887/8
Roentgen discovered rays that passed through flesh...he called them X-Rays.
Two months later Henri Becquerel accidentally found that a piece of uranium
ore emitted something that fogged photographic plates.
And the electron, the carrier of electricity, was discovered in 1897.
Within 5 years, and certainly within the next 100 -- to 1997 -- a vast change has occurred.
What are some of the high-lights of development after 1897?
Airplanes, inter-planetary travel, transistors, quantum mechanics, indeterminacy, TV, Internet, A and H bombs, antibiotics, electron microscopes would enable a view of the molecule and of some atoms, cell-phones offering world communication, a 19th century, end of era scientist would have declared anyone mad who predicted the above mentioned novelties that now rule our word and weld it more and more into one.
I also recall that Edison is reported to have made it a practice to go to
sleep sitting in a chair with a spoon held between his thumb and index
finger, when he went to sleep he relaxed, and the clatter of its fall awakened him, and he said he had often has some of his illuminating insights at that time? One wonders ?

He grew tomato plants under a plastic dome which
filtered the ultraviolet rays; and he increased the
After two years, a cherry tomato plant was 16 feet tall,

five or six months? They die of old age, destroyed by

GREATER AIR PRESSURE THEN
The atmospheric pressure, as well as the oxygen content,
had to be greater in the past, in order to support the
huge life forms which then existed.
My friend Dr. Carl Baugh, of Glen Rose Texas, has set
out to build the world's first hyperbaric biosphere, 62
feet long. Its purpose is to simulate the context of our

experiment in history, ever performed in the name of
Research indicates that essentially everything was larger
in the past. For instance, the club mosses which today
reach sixteen to eighteen inches often approach two
hundred feet in the fossil record.
The difference may well be in the atmospheric pressure:
In today's atmosphere we have 14.7 pounds atmospheric
pressure per inch at sea level.
But to oxygenate the deep cell tissue of those great
dinosaurs we need much greater atmospheric pressure.
Research has shown that when you approach two times
today's atmospheric pressure, the entire blood plasma
is saturated with oxygen.

The elemental analysis showed it to be 96.6 percent
iron, 0.74 percent sulphur, and 2.6 percent chlorine.
Physicists tell us that under today's atmospheric
conditions you cannot compound chlorine with metallic
iron. Yet here it is. Today, chlorine can be joined
with iron as solid metal only in two atmospheres of
oxygen pressure, and only in the absence of ultraviolet

Human Development In The Earth’s Rounds
The natural-born Seers and clairvoyants of Mrs. A. Kingsford’s and Mr. Maitland’s types; the great adepts of whatsoever country; the geniuses — whether in arts, politics or religious reform. No great physical distinction yet; too early and will come later on.
…a few drops of rain do not make a monsoon though they presage it. The fifth round has not commenced on our earth and the races and sub-races of one round must not be confounded with those of another round. ….
You should know also that the casual fifth round men (and very few and scarce they are) who come in upon us as avant couriers do not beget on earth fifth round progeny. Plato and Confucius were fifth round men and Gautama Buddha a sixth round man ….
Our mystic terms in their clumsy re-translation from the Sanskrit into English are as confusing to us as they are to you — especially to “M”. Unless in writing to you one of us takes his pen as an adept and uses it from the first word to the last, in this capacity he is quite as liable to “slips” as any other man.
No, we are not in the fifth round, but fifth round men have been coming in for the last few thousand years. But what is such a petty stretch of time in comparison with even one million of the several millions of years embraced in man’s occupancy of earth in a single round?...
UFO’s, ETs, and anamolies.
Using an ordinary 8 mm movie camera Dorothy Wilkinson-Izatthas filmed hundreds of sequences of unexplained, yet authenticated, pictures of UFO’s, ETs, and anamolies.
Dorothy Izatt is without peer anywhere on record in the world, even when compared to today's tabloid media with its endless loops of bizarre video footage from various places and people. Aside from the fact that electronically simulated video images aren't as yielding to analysis as the images in film photography, the obvious difference is that the footage derives from multiple sources. With Dorothy we have a credible, trustworthy, prolific source in one location - or in any location anywhere she chooses - willing to demonstrate the process for an observer.
The ordinary man has no experience of any state of consciousness other than that to which the physical senses link him. Men dream; they sleep the profound sleep which is too deep for dreams to impress the physical brain; and in these states there must still be consciousness.
How, then, while these mysteries remain unexplored, can we hope to speculate with profit on the nature of globes which, in the economy of nature, must needs belong to states of consciousness other and quite different from any which man experiences here?
And this is true to the letter. For even great adepts (those initiated of course), trained seers though they are, can claim thorough acquaintance with the nature and appearance of planets and their inhabitants belonging to our solar system only. They know that almost all the planetary worlds are inhabited, but can have access to—even in spirit—only those of our system; and they are also aware how difficult it is, even for them, to put themselves into full rapport even with the planes of consciousness within our system, but differing from the states of consciousness possible on this globe; i.e., on the three planes of the chain of spheres beyond our earth.
Such knowledge and intercourse are possible to them because they have learned how to penetrate to planes of consciousness which are closed to the perceptions of ordinary men; but were they to communicate their knowledge, the world would be no wiser, because it lacks that experience of other forms of perception which alone could enable them to grasp what was told them. Still the fact remains that most of the planets, as the stars beyond our system, are inhabited,
[SD II, 701]
…. bear in mind that on a higher plane even volatile ether would appear to be as gross as mud. Every plane has its own denseness of substance or matter, its own colours, sounds, dimensions of space, etc., which are quite unknown to us on this plane; and as we have on earth intermediary beings, the ant for instance, a kind of transitional entity between two planes, so on the plane above us there are creatures endowed with senses and faculties unknown to the inhabitants of that plane.
The ant, can certainly appreciate the sounds that we do, and it can also appreciate sounds that we can never hear, therefore evidently, physiology has nothing whatever to do with the matter. The ant and ourselves possess different degrees of perception. We are on a higher scale of evolution than the ant, but, comparatively speaking, we are the ants to the plane above.” [Transactions 121]

UNDERSTANDING DIGITAL BIOLOGY
by Jacques Benveniste
Explaining digital biology is impossible without explaining its principle. The purpose of this text is not to report experimental results. Rather, it tries to explain to laymen, in the simplest terms, this radically new approach to biology. We hope it will be useful to all, scientists or not, who find it hard to "make the leap".
Indeed, is it possible to believe that the specific activity of biologically-active molecules (e.g. histamine, caffeine, nicotine, adrenalin), not to mention the immunological signature of a virus or bacterium can be recorded and digitized using a computer sound card, just like an ordinary sound?
Imagine the perplexity of Archimedes confronted with a telephone, and being told that by using it he could be heard on the other side of the world, were we not to explain the nature of sound waves or their translation into electromagnetism.
Life depends on signals exchanged among molecules. For example, when you get angry, adrenalin "tells" its receptor, and it alone (as a faithful molecule, it talks to no other) to make your heart beat faster, to contract superficial blood vessels, etc.. In biology, the words "molecular signal" are used very often.
Yet, if you ask even the most eminent biologists what the physical nature of this signal is, they seem not even to understand the question, and stare at you wide-eyed.
In fact, they've cooked up a rigorously Cartesian physics all their own, as far removed as possible from the realities of contemporary physics, according to which simple contact (Descarte's laws of impact, quickly disproved by Huygens) between two coalescent structures creates energy, thus constituting an exchange of information. For many years, I believed and recited this catechism without realizing its absurdity, just as mankind did not realize the absurdity of the belief that the sun circles the earth.
HEALING & MEDICINE
Attitudes are changing, and alternative medicine is becoming a fast growing segment in Western medicine. It is gaining official political recognition and more widespread acceptance among western healthcare providers.
It is no longer considered only an eastern medical regimen. In fact, a significant increase in the number of alternative medical providers is expected to rise drastically within this decade (Kligman, 1998). Kligman also projects that by the year 2010, practitioners of alternative medicine will grow by 88%, rather than the 16% estimated rise in the number of traditional medical practitioners (Kligman).
Key research studies show that CAM are gaining acceptance by healthcare providers. Prayer is especially growing as an alternative method for healing. Additional research is needed to demonstrate further the effectiveness of prayer as a CAM modality for mind/body healing.
“…we are doing much to make known the importance of mesmeric science, for wherever we have been we have spared no pains to show the close and intimate relationship that exists between our modern discoveries in mesmerism, psychometry, and odic force, and the ancient Indian Science of Yoga-Vidya. We look forward with confidence to a day when the thorough demonstration of this connection will give to both Asia and Europe the basis for a perfect, because experimentally demonstrable, science of Psychology.” [Blavatsky, Collected Works, xiii. 362-3]
"Now, if besides health, power of will, knowledge of science, and benevolent compassion on the healer’s part, there be also faith, passivity, and the requisite attractive polarity, on that of the patient, the effect is the more rapid and amazing. Or, if faith be lacking and still there be the necessary polaric receptivity, the cure is still possible.
And again, if there be in the patient alone a faith supreme and unshakable in the power of a healer, of a holy relic, of the touch of a shrine, of the waters of a well, of a pilgrimage to a certain place and a bath in some sacred river, of any given ceremonies, or repetition of charms or an amulet worn about the neck—in either of these or many more agencies that might be named, then the patient will cure himself by the sole power of his predisposed faith."

Using crystals formed from distilled water as a base comparison, Emoto starts out by showing us photos of crystals from several rivers in Japan. The first shocking discovery was that very polluted water either has no crystal structure when it is frozen or else the crystals are very distorted and partial.
In contrast, photos from clear mountain streams are well-formed. Surprisingly, crystals from mystical or sacred places like Lourdes in France and Tenkawa (a river near a Shinto shrine where I once did a Hawaiian shaman ritual) are beautiful, but their centers are empty.
Later, there are before and after photos of frozen water subjected to heavy metal, classical and sad music, positive and negative printed words taped to the sides of sample bottles; and even positive and negative thoughts. The results of that are about what you would expect if you know Huna.
However, the most exciting experiment in my opinion was one in which a sample of water was taken from a polluted dam in Japan and then frozen and photographed. Next, a Buddhist priest sat by the water and spent an hour in prayer. Immediately after another sample was taken, frozen and photographed. You can see the results below.
DNA PHANTOM EFFECT
"The whole issue of the quarrel between the profane and the esoteric sciences depends upon the belief in, and demonstration of, the existence of an astral body within the physical, the former independent of the latter." [Secret Doctrine II,149]
DNA Phantom Effect
In this contribution I am going to describe some observations and interpretations of a recently discovered anomalous phenomenon which we are calling the DNA Phantom Effect in Vitro or the DNA Phantom for short.
We believe this discovery has tremendous significance for the explanation and deeper understandings of the mechanisms underlying subtle energy phenomena including many of the observed alternative healing phenomena [1,2]. This data also supports the heart intelligence concept and model developed by Doc Lew Childre [3,4]. (See also contributions by Rollin McCraty and Glen Rein in this volume).
Subtle Energy Research
Subtle energy is used in this context as Einstein used it, that is, to describe a type of energy that is at present not fully understood or measurable with today's equipment. This is similar to how electromagnetism was viewed only 250 years ago. The effects could be seen but not directly measured.
In the early 1990s, Moscow's Russian Academy of Sciences reported a startling relationship between DNA and the qualities of light, measured as photons.17 In a report detailing these early studies, Dr. Vladimir Poponin described a series of experiments suggesting that human DNA directly affects the physical world through a new and previously unknown field connecting the two. Recognized as a leading expert in the field of quantum biology, Dr. Poponin was on loan to an American research institution when this series of experiments was carried out.
So, what is Primary Perception?
Cleve Backster coined the term in a letter written to J. B. Rhine, of parapsychology fame, over three and a half decades ago. Rhine had jumped on Cleve's demonstrations of plant reactions with a Galvanic Skin Response, but when Cleve refused to be taken under his wing, Rhine became rather contentious, calling Cleve's discoveries some form of ESP. Cleve wrote to him saying, "You know, it seems that as a result of our experiments to date, that this is not extra-sensory. This is a primary perception that is before the specialized senses, so calling it ESP seems like a misnomer." There just may be an invisible web that links all of creation, that shows up in the lab as impulses on a GSR, the EKG or the EEG.

GIANT PROXIMITY EFFECT (GPE) & SUPERCONDUCTORS
The Giant Proximity Effect (GPE) is a theoretical relative of the established Proximity Effect (PE), in which a very thin layer of ‘normal’ metal behaves like a superconductor when placed between two thicker superconductor slices. However, PE theory states that GPE, which occurs across a relatively thick normal metal layer, should not be possible.
Almost five centuries B.C. Leucippus, the instructor of Democritus, maintained that Space was filled eternally with atoms actuated by a ceaseless motion, the latter generating in due course of time, when those atoms aggregated, rotatory motion, through mutual collisions producing lateral movements.
Epicurus and Lucretius taught the same, only adding to the lateral motion of the atoms the idea of affinity—an occult teaching. [SD I, 2]
“The Monads (of Leibnitz) may from one point of view be called force, from another matter. To occult Science, force and matter are only two sides of the same SUBSTANCE.” (“Path,” No. 1O, p. 297.)

Here's a different view of "solid reality":
The most mind-boggling aspect of Pribram's holographic model of the brain is what happens when it is put together with Bohm's theory.
For if the concreteness of the world is but a secondary reality and what is "there" is actually a holographic blur of frequencies, and if the brain is also a hologram and only selects some of the frequencies out of this blur and mathematically transforms them into sensory perceptions, what becomes of objective reality?
Put quite simply, it ceases to exist.
As the religions of the East have long upheld, the material world is Maya, an illusion, and although we may think we are physical beings moving through a physical world, this too is an illusion.
We are really "receivers" floating through a kaleidoscopic sea of frequency, and what we extract from this sea and transmogrify into physical reality is but one channel from many extracted out of the superhologram.

It is "the particular collective arrangement" that is the operative
What governs that particular arranging to produce & differentiate
conventionally existent forms? What faculty or activity? How?
Perhaps this type of 'thought" is a reference to Blavatsky's notion of
"Cosmic Ideation" or the contents thereof. Another way to put it might
be to say this refers to the notion of classical Platonic
"archetypes"(as contrasted with the Jungian psychological use of the
term.... perhaps they are related.)
Where do the models for any manifested forms come from? Even if we
acknowledge that they are mayavic and empty of inherent existence, they
are temporary 'things" that man did not create. Whence comes the
informing intelligence that guides the arrangement of monadic hosts that
we label galaxies, solar systems, planets or any of the myriad
geometries directing atoms to adhere, chemicals to bond, minerals to
crystalize, vegetables to grow, etc? This may indeed be 'karma in
action' or the 'activity of manas' as a creative naming function, but it
definitely seems extended beyond the scale of conscious humanity.
While we all may conceptually acknowledge recognizing a particular
arrangement as a "tree", for example, can anyone of us, as waking
conscious personalities, claim to have created it? If you run into
it while jogging or it falls on top of you in a storm, can you will it
out of existence by simply calling it 'maya' or 'mind only?'
To merely attribute the forms of cosmic creation to karma or thought,
especially at the human scale, seems a tad oversimplified, no?
Just wondering. ;-)
Does Objective Reality Exist, or is the Universe a Phantasm?
In 1982 a remarkable event took place. At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century.
You did not hear about it on the evening news. In fact, unless you are in the habit of reading scientific journals you probably have never even heard Aspect's name, though there are some who believe his discovery may change the face of science.
Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn't matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing.
The problem with this feat is that it violates Einstein's long-held tenet that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light. Since traveling faster than the speed of light is tantamount to breaking the time barrier, this daunting prospect has caused some physicists to try to come up with elaborate ways to explain away Aspect's findings. But it has inspired others to offer even more radical explanations.
But the most mind-boggling aspect of Pribram's holographic model of the brain is what happens when it is put together with Bohm's theory.
For if the concreteness of the world is but a secondary reality and what is "there" is actually a holographic blur of frequencies, and if the brain is also a hologram and only selects some of the frequencies out of this blur and mathematically transforms them into sensory perceptions, what becomes of objective reality? Put quite simply, it ceases to exist. As the religions of the East have long upheld, the material world is Maya, an illusion, and although we may think we are physical beings moving through a physical world, this too is an illusion.
We are really "receivers" floating through a kaleidoscopic sea of frequency, and what we extract from this sea and transmogrify into physical reality is but one channel from many extracted out of the superhologram.
This striking new picture of reality, the synthesis of Bohm and Pribram's views, has come to be called the-holographic paradigm, and although many scientists have greeted it with skepticism, it has galvanized others. A small but growing group of researchers believe it may be the most accurate model of reality science has arrived at thus far. More than that, some believe it may solve some mysteries that have never before been explainable by science and even establish the paranormal as a part of nature. Numerous researchers, including Bohm and Pribram, have noted that many para-psychological phenomena become much more understandable in terms of the holographic paradigm.
Earth 'n Sync
Earth sings like a canary. Yep, you heard right. As Earth goes whizzing and whirling around the sun, it hums. If it were several octaves higher - we'd be able to hear it. But the Earth hums notes too low for human ears. Where is the humming coming from? It's a mystery. Scientists know that sound waves in the atmosphere correspond to similar waves underground. What gets the sound waves started could be changes in air pressure, or maybe the pounding of ocean waves. Do all planets sing? Some scientists think our two closest cousins Mars and Venus might be harmonizing along with Earth.
THE EARTH HUMS MORE LOUDLY IN THE AFTERNOONS
It has been known for almost a century that large earthquakes set the earth to ringing like a bell. In SF#118, we reported that the planet also "hums" when there have been no earthquakes. Just what forces stimulate this seismic humming of the earth-as-a-whole is still a matter of conjecture.
Actually, "hum" is a poor choice of words. The period of these vibrations ranges from 3 to 8 minutes, which puts them in the range of infrasound.
Recently, N. Suda of Nagoya University has found a clue suggesting that thunderstorms may excite these very-lowfrequency vibrations.
Suda and his colleagues analyzed the seismic records at four seismically quiet locations around the globe and discovered that the hum is loudest between noon and 8 PM local time. The quietest period is from midnight to 6 AM. These are the same time frames when thunderstorms are most active and quiet. It's circumstantial evidence, but it makes sense.
(Kerr, Richard A.; "Earth Seems to Hum along with the Wind," Science, 283:321, 1999.)
Comment. Infrasound in the atmosphere may originate from storms thousands of miles away and from strong winds blowing across mountain crests. It appears that the earth is an immense, spherical aeolian harp!
Scientists believe they have pinpointed the origin of a low frequency "hum" that emanates from the Earth.
The noise - which can be picked up in the two and seven mHz (millihertz) range - occurs far below the threshold of human hearing, US researchers said. A University of California team propose the hum is a product of storm energy being converted into other forms in the Pacific and Southern Oceans. Details of the study appear this week in the academic journal Nature. The scientists say they have ruled out earthquakes as the source

Subject: Music and the Brain
Use Humming and Toning to Tune Up Your Brain
In the Mozart Effect, Don Campbell, founder of the Institute of Music,
Health and Education, lists the benefits of using your voice to enhance mood
and memory. He says that all forms of vocalization, including singing,
chanting, yodeling, humming, reciting poetry, or simply talk can be
therapeutic. "Nothing rivals toning," he concludes. The word 'toning' goes
back to the fourteenth century and means to make sounds with elongated
vowels for extended periods of time. Ah, ou (such as in soup), ee, ay, oh
and om are examples of toning sounds.
Campbell writes that when people tone on a regular basis for 5 minutes a
day, "I have witnessed thousands of people relax into their voices, become
more centered in their bodies, release fear and other emotions, and free
themselves from physical pain.I have seen many people apply toning in
practical ways, from relaxing before a dreaded test to eliminating symptoms
of tinnitus or migraine headaches.
Toning has been effective in relieving insomnia and other sleep
disorders..Toning balances brain waves, deepens the breath, reduces the
heart rate and imparts a general sense of well-being." Campbell reports that
in his experience certain sounds tend to have certain effects on the body
Ahhh - immediately evokes a relaxation response,
Ee or Ay - is the most stimulating of vowel sounds, helps with
concentration, releasing pain and anger,
Oh or Om - considered the richest of sounds, can warm skin temperature and
relax muscle tension. Try toning for 5 minutes a day for 2 weeks to see if
it will help you.
In a similar way, humming can also make a positive difference in mood and
memory. Mozart hummed as he composed. Children hum when they are happy.
Adults often hum tunes that go through their minds, lifting their spirits
and tuning their mind. Consciously focus on humming during the day. As the
sound activates your brain, you will feel more alive and your brain will
feel more tuned in to the moment.

Leon Maurer answers:
I think that the expression "hearing the music of the spheres" is
metaphorical -- in that it refers to the spherical nature of the higher order fields of
consciousness that initially involve harmonically out of the primal Absolute
laya point and its surrounding spinergy -- as fractalized spheres in triune
groups... One such "monad" inside the other, like bubbles within bubbles within
bubbles, etc. See:
Since, an understanding of this infinitely divisible, multidimensional
spherical form of the Universe is based on the fundamental laws of cycles that lead
to infinite coenergetic harmonics between the fields -- and thus, can guide us
to a clear comprehension of how nature works analogously and correspondingly
to organize self generating systems of life in infinite combinations and
complexities, yet in perfect harmony, like music (and with the zero-point
consciousness that is everywhere with its awareness and will pulling the strings) --
this awakening of understanding of that reality can be metaphorically referred
to as "hearing (realizing, sensing, imagining, etc.) the music of the spheres."
This all encompassing visualization, which links all the senses together in a
multi-sensory graphical form that can be seen, heard, touched, smelled tasted
and mentally comprehended simultaneously, is what is meant by "hearing the
voice of the silence," and seeing the "word" (or vibrational patterns of
vibrational energies) that, as Krishna said, "establishes this whole Universe with a
single portion of itself, and remains separate."
This is what all those gurus mentioned below were trying to say -- before
there was an explanation "in the language of this age" that would be consistent
with what people know today as "modern science" since Einstein opened the door
soon after HPB left the scene.
Could this, and the scientific breakthroughs (and metaphysical linkages) that
followed, have been what HPB meant by the "New Message" that was to come
before the advent of the 21st century? (And, isn't it wise of the Masters not to
have sent a recognizable "Messenger" -- since theosophy didn't need another
"Messiah" or "high Priestess" to gum up the works? :-)
In any event, such a visualization and the ideation's it leads to certainly
is a great aid to ones meditation practices. In fact, it could very well be
the most essential key in attaining enlightenment... Since it encapsulates
everything taught in the Secret Doctrine (as "The Synthesis of Science, Religion
and Philosophy") along with the Voice of the Silence -- without dependence on
faith, priests, messiahs or a personal God.

Dr. John Zimmerman of the University of Colorado, using a SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) has discovered that magnetic fields several hundred times stronger than background noise are created around the hands of trained healers when doing healing work on patients. No such fields are created by 'sham' healers making the same movements, indicating something special is happening with the trained healers. The frequencies of the magnetic fields surrounding the hands of the trained healers were of the alpha and theta wave range similar to those seen in the brain of meditators"
Aura of LIVING water
One of the most fascinating research directions on Earth at present is the study of the Aura and bio-energetic structure of water. This research is conducted in Russia by Prof. K.Korotkov.
Two Kirlian Aura images of seemingly identical drops of water, kindly provided by Prof Korotkov, are shown. The left image depicts Aura vibration around a drop of normal water and the right image shows the Aura around a drop charged by the famous Russian healer Allan Chumak during ten minutes of conscious concentration. The difference in the bio-energy glow is dramatic: the bio-charged water has more than 30 times stronger Aura vibration and significantly altered physical and biological properties.
Contemporary physics cannot explain the above change in water glow which, technically speaking, is a purely physical process involving an electrical discharge in air around the drop. The main reason for this is that a great majority of “scientists” on Earth completely ignore our consciousness in their perception of Reality. Prof. K.Korotkov says that the increase in the Aura around a drop of water cannot be explained without considering the energy and vibration of our consciousness. Water Aura experiments are indisputable evidence that our mind, when properly trained, can dramatically change the qualities of matter.
This device shouldn't work. But it does. This amazing device measures what is currently not even recognized by western science.
SECRET DOCTRINE AND NEW SCIENCE
The Benefit Of Clinical Mental Health
"We have shown in The Secret Doctrine that everything in this world of effects has three attributes or the triple synthesis of the seven principles. In order to state this more clearly, let us say that everything which exists in this, our world, is made up of three principles and four aspects, just as is the case with man himself.
As man is a composite being, consisting of a body, a rational soul and an immortal spirit, so each object in nature has an objective exterior, a vital soul, and a divine spark which is purely spiritual and subjective. As the first of these propositions cannot be denied, the second can hardly be either, for if official Science admits that metals, woods, minerals, powders and drugs can produce effects, then it tacitly recognises the latter. As for the third, the presence of an absolute quintessence in every atom, materialism, which has no use for the anima mundi, utterly denies it." ...
"I have tried to prove in The Secret Doctrine, seven interpretations varying in meaning with their application to one or another of the domains of nature, the physical, the psychic, or the purely spiritual..."
[H.P.Blavatsky, "ALCHEMY IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY", CW Vol.XI]
The below site was sent to me, and am sure HPB would highly approve their objectives as consonant with that of the SD's "Synthesis of Science, Religion and Philosophy":
The John E. Mack Institute features research initiatives that bridge Western and alternative traditions and examine healing phenomena to expand epistemological and therapeutic modalities. When used exclusively, without the input of other approaches, Western methodology may impede our understanding of the world more than facilitate it. Through the investigation of self-transcendence, the Superconscious and deeper ways of knowing, we will generate unique research for the benefit of clinical mental health.
“As I listen to people and also examine other cultures and time periods, what I'm struck by is how large and variegated human experience really is. We aim to stand firmly on the border between the worlds of psychology and spirituality, science and religion, and describe the vistas seen when these traditionally disparate fields of study are allowed to cohere in the natural and organic unity that is sought and achieved in an individual human life.
Doing so, I believe, will open the door, not only to seeing how fundamentally good and inter-connected all of life is, but also allow us to begin recovering pathways for spiritual development and capacities for self- -transcendence that remain largely untapped and latent, but within all of us. Medicine and psychiatry will be more succesful in their own missions if they understand the nature of these capacities and the conditions which encourage their growth.”
—Jeffrey Rediger, M.D., M.Div.
The Superconscious Self: Consciousness, Healing and Vitality
The theory that both problems and treatments span the body, mind and spirit will be explored through quantifiable research into how the healing process is experienced in the physical, psychological, and spiritual domains.
Too often in our culture we focus on the parts to the exclusion of the whole. “Spiritual” problems are the province of the cleric, “emotional” problems the domain of the psychologist or psychiatrist, “physical” problems the responsibility of the medical doctor. The efforts of this initiative are driven by the belief that there also exists an all-important kinetic reciprocity between these dimensions; that to label certain inner experiences as the product of disease does not serve the client, that both problems and treatments span the body, mind and spirit.

empirical info. Every scientific term is explained briefly when first

their way through the book in stages of study.

Yes we agree completely on the info contained in myths.
I do not know if you know or not, HPB goes to great lengths to insist on the importance of
myths. Yes the accuracy of Plato in the Critias should change our views of
myths. Critics will say he must have been wrong because such a story
"could not" have been remembered that long. Of course the critics are
wrong. I will be saying more about myths later. It is astounding what
actually has been remembered for 12,000 years! (Note, also HPB asserts
multiple meanings to the myths. It gets to be a fulsome topic.)
You say the axis did not shift. You must account for the instantly frozen
mammoths. There are more geological facts on the ground to be accounted
for but that problem is the easiest to visualize.
[ see VELIKOVSKY’s books]
We agree on the nuclear winter. I say there was a mini ice-age lasting
2,000 years after the event. In other words - if there was a pleistocene
it started just after the alleged pleistocene ended.
We agree on the "sea of mud". Later I will tell the exceeding odd story of
the migrating eels versus the sea of mud.
Asteroids are important to this story. Notice the asteroid belt. It
appears to be an exploded planet. I say the same cosmic intruder that
caused the disaster on earth caused the explosion of the planet that turned
into the asteroid belt.
Surpise - what becomes critical here are the translations of
Sitchen! Those translations as they relate to the destruction of that
planet are perhaps the most dramatic and fascinating confirmations of the
story. The Babylonians had records ultimately from eye witnesses. Some
myth. I will get to that story. (It is explained in Cataclysm.)
So I suggest to you that the origin of the asteroid belt should fit into
the complete story.
If you like the explanatory power of asteroids you should get "The Secret
of Atlantis" by Otto Muck. (At
He attributes the cause to two asteroids whose traces can still be found today
in the Atlantic off Florida. These are related to the Carolina Bays I
mentioned earlier. But I take these to be only part of the story. His
book is excellent. And I take it to be a very clear example of how one
needs the Cataclysm book to get the full picture.
Yes of course flood myths are world wide.
You mention planetary alignments. It appears to me the solar planetary
evidence is suggestive of a planetary alignment at the time of the disaster.
Yes the Mayan calendar is something to be taken seriously. It
is important to relate it to the disaster. But I say it was started still
a significant amount of time after the disaster - a thousand years or so, I
am not sure. And the Mayans in general should be tied into a complete
explanation. It seems highly likely they were Atlanteans.

FROM A NULL POINT (LAYA POINT) TO ENERGY
His inter-etheric point is the laya-point of the Occultists, which, however,
does not require "an infinite mind to understand it," but only a specific
intuition and ability to trace its hiding-place in this world of matter. Of
course, the laya centre cannot be produced, but an inter-etheric vacuum
can—as proved in the production of bell-sounds in space.
Mr. Keely speaks as an unconscious Occultist, nevertheless, when he remarks
in his theory of planetary suspension:—
"As regards planetary volume, we would ask in a scientific point of view,
How can the immense difference of volume in the planets exist without
disorganising the harmonious action that has always characterised them? I
can only answer this question properly by entering into a progressive
analysis, starting on the rotating etheric centres that were fixed ….. with
their attractive or accumulative power. If you ask what power it is that
gives to each etheric atom its inconceivable velocity of rotation (or
introductory impulse), I must answer that no finite mind will ever be able
to conceive what it is. The philosophy of accumulation is the only proof
that such a power has been given.
The area, if we can so speak, of such an atom, presents to the attractive or
magnetic, the elective or propulsive, all the receptive force and all the
antagonistic force that characterises a planet of the largest magnitude;
consequently, as the accumulation goes on, the perfect equation remains the
When this minute centre has once been fixed, the power to rend it from its
position would necessarily have to be so great as to displace the most
immense planet that exists. When this atomic neutral centre is displaced,
the planet must go with it. The neutral centre carries the full load of any
accumulation from the start, and remains the same, for ever balanced in the
“…that principle in man which can control and guide etheric vibratory force.
At any rate it exists in all those mortals whose inner selves are
primordially connected, by reason of their direct descent, with that group
of Dhyan-Chohans who are called "the first-born of Ether."
Mankind, psychically considered, is divided into various groups, each of
which is connected with one of the Dhyanic groups that first formed psychic
man; (see paragraphs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in the Commentary to Stanza VII.)
Mr. Keely being greatly favoured in this respect, and moreover, besides his
psychic temperament, being intellectually a genius in mechanics, may thus
achieve most wonderful results. He has achieved some already—more than any
mortal man, not initiated into the final mysteries, has achieved in this age
up to the present day. What he has done is certainly quite sufficient "to
demolish with the hammer of Science the idols of Science"—the idols of
matter with the feet of clay….
Occultly this was a far more advanced achievement than the "success" which
he anticipates from his "wire," but the results obtained from the fifth and
sixth planes of the etheric (or Astral) Force, will never be permitted to
serve for purposes of commerce and traffic. That Keely's organism is
directly connected with the production of the marvellous results is proven
by the following statement emanating from one who knows the great discoverer
In this he is quite right; but this is electricity on the terrestrial plane,
and through terrestrial correlations. He estimates—
Molecular vibrations at 100,000,000 per second.
Inter-molecular " " 300,000,000 " "
Atomic " " 900,000,000 " "
Inter-atomic " " 2,700,000,000 " "
Ætheric " " 8,100,000,000 " "
Inter-Ætheric " "24,300,000,000 " "
This proves our point. There are no vibrations that could be counted or even
estimated at an approximate rate beyond "the realm of the fourth son of
Fohat," using an occult phraseology, or that motion which corresponds to the
formation of Mr. Crookes' radiant matter, or lightly called some years ago
the "fourth state of matter"—on this our plane.
The MORAL FACTOR
Occult philosophy divulges few of its most important vital mysteries. It
drops them like precious pearls, one by one, far and wide apart, and only
when forced to do so by the evolutionary tidal wave that carries on humanity
slowly, silently, but steadily toward the dawn of the Sixth-Race mankind.
For once out of the safe custody of their legitimate heirs and keepers,
those mysteries cease to be occult: they fall into the public domain and
have to run the risk of becoming in the hands of the selfish—of the Cains of
the human race—curses more often than blessings.
It will be at its appointed place and time only when the great roaring flood
of starvation, misery, and underpaid labour ebbs back again—as it will when
happily at last the just demands of the many are attended to; when the
proletariat exists but in name, and the pitiful cry for bread, that rings
throughout the world unheeded, has died away.
This may be hastened by the spread of learning, and by new openings for work
and emigration, with better prospects than exist now, and on some new
continent that may appear. Then only will "Keely's Motor and Force," as
originally contemplated by himself and friends, be in demand, because it
will be more needed by the poor than by the wealthy.
. . . "It is as platina [platinum] to hydrogen gas. Molecular separation of
air brings us to the first sub-division only; inter-molecular, to the
second; atomic, to the third; inter-atomic, to the fourth; etheric, to the
fifth; and inter-etheric, to the sixth sub-division, or positive association
with luminiferous ether.* In my introductory argument I have contended that
this is the vibratory envelope of all atoms.
In my definition of atom I do not confine myself to the sixth sub-division
where this luminiferous ether is developed in its crude form as far as my
researches prove. † I think this idea will be pronounced by the physicists
of the present day, a wild freak of the imagination. Possibly, in time, a
light may fall upon this theory that will bring its simplicity forward for
scientific research. At present I can only compare it to some planet in a
dark space, where the light of the sun of science has not yet reached it. .
"I assume that sound, like odour, is a real substance of unknown and
wonderful tenuity, emanating from a body where it has been induced by
percussion and throwing out absolute corpuscles of matter, inter-atomic
particles, with velocity of 1,120 feet per second; in vacuo 20,000.
The substance which is thus disseminated is a part and parcel of the mass
agitated, and, if kept under this agitation continuously, would, in the
course of a certain cycle of time, become thoroughly absorbed by the
atmosphere; or, more truly, would pass through the atmosphere to an elevated
point of tenuity corresponding to the condition of sub-division that governs
its liberation from its parent body." . . .
VIBRATIONS: ODOR, SOUND
"As regards odour, we can only get some definite idea of its extreme and
wondrous tenuity by taking into consideration that a large area of
atmosphere can be impregnated for a long series of years from a single grain
of musk; which, if weighed after that long interval, will be found to be not
appreciably diminished. The great paradox attending the flow of odorous
particles is that they can be held under confinement in a glass vessel! Here
is a substance of much higher tenuity than the glass that holds it, and yet
it cannot escape. It is as a sieve with its meshes large enough to pass
marbles, and yet holding fine sand which cannot pass through; in fact, a
molecular vessel holding an atomic substance. This is a problem that would
confound those who stop to recognize it. But infinitely tenuous as odour is,
it holds a very crude relation to the substance of sub-division that governs
a magnetic flow (a flow of sympathy, if you please to call it so). This
sub-division comes next to sound, but is above sound. The action of the flow
of a magnet coincides somewhat to the receiving and distributing portion of
the human brain, giving off at all times a depreciating ratio of the amount
received. It is a grand illustration of the control of mind over matter,
which gradually depreciates the physical till dissolution takes place. The
magnet on the same ratio gradually loses its power and becomes inert. If the
relations that exist between mind and matter could be equated and so held,
we would live on in our physical state eternally, as there would be no
physical depreciation. But this physical depreciation leads, at its
terminus, to the source of a much higher development—viz., the liberation of
the pure ether from the crude molecular; which, in my estimation, is to be
Mr. Keely defines electricity "as a certain form of atomic vibration."
“There is a transcendental set of causes put in motion—so to speak—in the
occurrence of these phenomena, which, not being in relation to our narrow
range of cognition, can only be traced to their source and their nature, and
understood by the Spiritual faculties of the Adept.
They are, as Asclepios puts it to the King, "incorporeal
corporealities"—such as "appear in the mirror," and "abstract forms" that we
see, hear, and smell, in our dreams, and visions. What have the "modes of
motion," light, and ether to do with these?
Yet we see, hear, and smell, and touch them, ergo they are as much realities
to us in our dreams, as any other thing on this plane of Maya”.
SECRET DOCTRINE I 555 - 566
These are key statements made by HPB in the S D . They show that the
Occultists knew quite well what Keeley was dealing with and what his special
nature and its limits were.
Here is the certificate given by the Masters on the authorship of the
AUTHORSHIP OF SECRET DOCTRINE
A good deal has been said about the writing of Isis Unveiled, and later of
the Secret Doctrine, both by H. P. Blavatsky. A writer in the spiritualistic
journals took great pains to show how many books the first work seems to
quote from, and the conclusion to be arrived at after reading his diatribes
is that H.P.B. had an enormous library at her disposal, and of course in her
house, for she never went out, or that she had agents at great expense
copying books, or, lastly, that by some process or power not known to the
world was able to read books at a distance, as, for instance, in the Vatican
at Rome and the British Museum. The last is the fact. She lived in a small
flat when writing the first book and had very few works on hand, all she had
being of the ordinary common sort. She herself very often told how she
gained her information as to modern books. No secret was made of it, for
those who were with her saw day after day that she could gaze with ease into
the astral light and glean whatever she wanted. But in the early days she
did not say precisely to the public that she was in fact helped in that work
by the Masters, who gave from time to time certain facts she could not get
otherwise. The Secret Doctrine, however, makes no disguise of the real help,
and she asserts, as also many of us believe, that the Masters had a hand in
that great production. The letters sent to Mr. Sinnett formed the ground for
Esoteric Buddhism, as was intended, but as time went on it was seen that
some more of the veil had to be lifted and certain misconceptions cleared
up; hence the Secret Doctrine was written, and mostly by the Masters
themselves, except that she did the arranging of it.
For some time it was too much the custom of those who had received at the
hands of H.P.B. words and letters from her Masters to please themselves with
the imagination that she was no more in touch with the original fount, and
that, forsooth, these people could decide for themselves what was from her
brain and what from the Masters. But it is now time to give out a
certificate given when the Secret Doctrine was being written, a certificate
signed by the Masters who have given out all that is new in our theosophical
books. It was sent to one who had then a few doubts, and at the same time
copies were given from the same source to others for use in the future,
which is now. The first certificate runs thus:
I wonder if this note of mine is worthy of occupying a select spot with the
documents reproduced, and which of the peculiarities of the "Blavatskian"
style of writing it will be found to most resemble? The present is simply to
satisfy the Doctor that "the more proof given the less believed." Let him
take my advice and not make these two documents public. It is for his own
satisfaction the undersigned is happy to assure him that the Secret
Doctrine, when ready, will be the triple production of [here are the names
of one of the Masters and of H.P.B.] and _______ most humble servant,
[signed by the other.]
On the back of this was the following, signed by the Master who is mentioned
in the above:
If this can be of any use or help to _____, though I doubt it, I, the humble
undersigned Faquir, certify that the Secret Doctrine is dictated to [name of
H.P.B.], partly by myself and partly by my brother ______.
A year after this, certain doubts having arisen in the minds of individuals,
another letter from one of the signers of the foregoing was sent and reads
as follows. As the prophecy in it has come true, it is now the time to
publish it for the benefit of those who know something of how to take and
understand such letters. For the outside it will all be so much nonsense.
The certificate given last year saying the Secret Doctrine would be when
finished the triple production of [H.P.B.'s name], ________, and myself was
and is correct, although some have doubted not only the facts given in it
but also the authenticity of the message in which it was contained. Copy
this and also keep the copy of the aforesaid certificate. You will find them
both of use on the day when you shall, as will happen without your asking,
receive from the hands of the very person to whom the certificate was given,
the original for the purpose of allowing you to copy it; and then you can
verify the correctness of this presently forwarded copy. And it may then be
well to indicate to those wishing to know what portions in the Secret
Doctrine have been copied by the pen of [H.P.B.'s name] into its pages,
though without quotation marks, from my own manuscript and perhaps from
______, though the last is more difficult from the rarity of his known
writing and greater ignorance of his style. All this and more will be found
necessary as time goes on, but for which you are well qualified to wait."

Although the evidence proved that he was in fact a charlatan and did fake

However, HPB did know the possibilities of such energy being extractable --

Zacharia Sitchen is one thing, but here is another view about that alleged mysterious periodic transgressor of our Planetary system.
This is the work of a former NASA Scientist whose forte while employed by NASA was Orbital Mechanics and Microwave Technology.
His theory is based on the Dendera Temple Zodiac, the Temple of Senmut and other relevant old records. This is a little
lengthy to read as is necessary to understand what he interprets but is worth the effort. He has different periodicity than Sitchen based on his calculations from the Egyptian record. I have had communication with him and suggested he look

CAN YOU GUESS HOW THIS HAPPENED?
My head is whirling at the thought of it. Can you imagine -
two miles down inside a coal mine - an ancient building!!!
That's right... inside the coal.
* Oklahoma: In 1928, in coal mine No. 5, near
Heavener, at a depth of two miles, miners encountered a wall
composed of 12 inch cube concrete blocks. The blocks were
so smooth and polished on the outside that all six sides acted
as mirrors. A solid wall was exposed. About 100 to 150
yards further down the shaft, the same wall or one very
similar was uncovered.
EVIDENCE THEN BURIED
When they reported the discovery to the mining officers, the
men were pulled out of that mine and sent to another mine.
That part of the mine was then filled up.
Hey, what's going on here? Who's afraid these things will

There are just two ways you can understand this:
(1) EITHER civilized man (the grand finale of so-called
evolution) was on earth BEFORE the "coal age" (up to 300
million years ago)
(2) OR coal was NOT laid down 300 million years ago, but
very recently, after civilized man.
Either way, the evolution sequence is in trouble.

But first, what do you think of these?:
* Western Australia: In 1975, water drillers 80 miles
from Perth struck concrete 30 feet below the surface.
Investigation proved the existence of a concrete wall.
* France: At Aix-en-Provence, from 1786 to 1788,
coins, stumps of columns and other worked stones, were
discovered 50 feet down, below eleven beds of compact
* Kentucky: At Blue Lick Springs, underground,
below the remains of a prehistoric mastodon, was
discovered a pavement of cut-stone tiles.
* Ohio: In the autumn of 1868, in a strip of coal mine
operated by Captain Lucy near Hammondsville, at 100 feet
below ground a large mass of coal fell into the shaft,
unmasking a large, smooth, slate wall covered with
inscriptions similar to hieroglyphics, in lines about three
inches apart. Crowds flocked to see this marvel. By the time
qualified scientists got there with proper equipment, the slate
had crumbled in the air and the writing was destroyed.
* Pennsylvania: In November 1829, in a quarry twelve
miles northwest of Philadelphia, at a depth of 69-70 feet
below ground, a block of marble was found, which bore an
indentation containing the raised alphabet characters 'I' and
'U'.' The discovery was authenticated by several reliable
witnesses and two years later an illustration appeared in the
American Journal of Science, vol.19, p.361.
* Omaha, Nebraska: About 130 feet underground,
coalminers found a carved slab of rock. The marks on it
divided the shape into diamonds. In the centre of each
diamond was an engraving of a human face. The earth had
not been disturbed - and the coal was dated at 300 million
years. (Omaha Daily News, 1897)

UFO Town Seeks Aid for Earthly Visitors
Wed Aug 11, 2004 10:40 AM ET
WARSAW (Reuters) - A Polish town plans to ask the European Union for the equivalent of $126 million to help it build facilities for hundreds of visitors lured by its mysterious crop circles, a local official said on Tuesday.
Crop circles -- areas in farmers' fields where grain has been flattened, often in complex interlocking patterns -- have been appearing in Wylatowo, western Poland, for four years.
The circles have drawn interest from UFO enthusiasts who believe they are made by alien spacecraft, while others dismiss them as hoaxes.
"We are drawing up a formal request -- we'd like to fix the sewer system and put up a campsite for visitors, both from Poland and from elsewhere in Europe," Wylatowo town councilor Tadeusz Filipczak told Reuters.
"I've got an exhibit for tourists set up in my place where they can come and ask questions -- I mean, you can't just send people out in the fields," he said.
...precisely one year after a strange fractal "crop glyph" appeared in a field just outside the Chilbolton Radio telescope grounds, in Hampshire, England, another, even stranger glyph appeared (above). According to Darcy Ladd, Manager of the Chilbolton Radio Observatory, in an interview with Colin Andrews, the image appeared â€œsuddenly on the morning of August 14th.â€ According to Mr. Ladd, â€œNo unusual activity was seen that morning, in the field or [in terms of] aircraft overhead, etc â€¦.â€ According to the Manager, Chilbolton does have security cameras, but they are not equipped for night vision surveillance. The cameras captured â€œnothing unusual.â€

California Institute for Physics and Astrophysics
QUANTUM PHYSICS predicts the existence of an underlying sea of zero-point energy at every point in the universe. This is different from the cosmic microwave background and is also referred to as the electromagnetic quantum vacuum since it is the lowest state of otherwise empty space. This energy is so enormous that most physicists believe that even though zero-point energy seems to be an inescapable consequence of elementary quantum theory, it cannot be physically real, and so is subtracted away in calculations.
A minority of physicists accept it as real energy which we cannot directly sense since it is the same everywhere, even inside our bodies and measuring devices. From this perspective, the ordinary world of matter and energy is like a foam atop the quantum vacuum sea. It does not matter to a ship how deep the ocean is below it. If the zero-point energy is real, there is the possibility that it can be tapped as a source of power or be harnessed to generate a propulsive force for space travel.
THE SECRET DOCTRINE
SD I, 545 â€œTHE ORIGINAL BASEâ€
"Matter is eternal," says the Esoteric Doctrine. But the matter the Occultists conceive of in its laya, or zero state, is not the matter of modern science; not even in its most rarefied gaseous state. Mr. Crookes' "radiant matter" would appear matter of the grossest kind in the realm of the beginnings, as it becomes pure spirit before it has returned back even to its first point of differentiation.
Therefore, when the adept or alchemist adds that, though matter is eternal, for it is PRADHANA, yet atoms are born at every new manvantara, or reconstruction of the universe, it is no such contradiction as a materialist, who believes in nothing beyond the atom, might think. There is a difference between manifested and unmanifested matter, between pradhana, the beginningless and endless cause, and prakriti, or the manifested effect. Says the sloka; --
"That which is the unevolved cause is emphatically called by the most eminent sages, pradhana, original base, which is subtile prakriti, viz., that which is eternal, and which at once is, and is not, a mere process."*
That which in modern phraseology is respectively referred to as Spirit and Matter, is ONE in eternity as the perpetual cause, and it is neither Spirit nor matter, but IT -- rendered in Sanskrit TAD ("that"), -- all that is, was, or will be, all that the imagination of man is capable of conceiving. Even the exoteric Pantheism of Hinduism renders it as no monotheistic philosophy ever did, for in superb phraseology its cosmogony begins with the well-known words: --
"There was neither day nor night, neither heaven nor earth, neither darkness nor light. And there was not ought else apprehensible by the senses or by the mental faculties. There was then one Brahma, essentially prakriti (Nature) and Spirit. For the two aspects of Vishnu which are other than his supreme essential aspect are prakriti and Spirit, and Brahman.
When these two other ASPECTS of his no longer subsist, but are dissolved, then that aspect whence form and the rest, i.e., creation, proceed anew, is denominated time, O twice-born."
It is that which is dissolved, or the illusionary dual aspect of That, the essence of which is eternally ONE, that we call eternal matter or Substance (Vide in Part II., "Primordial Substance and Divine Thought"), formless, sexless, inconceivable, even to our sixth sense or mind,** in which, therefore, we refuse to see that which Monotheists call a personal, anthropomorphic God.
How are these two propositions -- "that matter is eternal," and "the atom periodical, and not eternal" -- viewed by modern exact Science? The materialistic physicist will criticize and laugh them to scorn.

the sea level were 300 to 600 feet lower on the average?
If Poseidonis disappeared in a night (?) then where might it have been and
where are the islands and shores of that time?
Is there any way we can trace them.
I hear of evidence along various shores of elevated Coast lines --- along
the coast of So. America, for instance,
Then there was a recent study on the evidence of flora and fauna around the
Atlantic ocean basin comparing So. America and West European coastal regions
- showing that at one time in the geological past there had ben some
connections and similarities of species as well as geological comparables
tended to show that the may have been a valid connection.
I see almost too much anxiety to dispel any interest in such contiguity and
co-existence, and, I ask myself why is it that in certain scientific circles
there is so much interest in placing bars and obstacles in the way of
considering the statements made in THEOSOPHY concerning the past.
Suppose that some of us set together and established a table listing the
ages and eras of the past that Theosophy speaks on this - then com[pare it
with those dates and ideas that Science seems to adopt.
I recall that it was a geologist who supported the examination of water wear
on the Sphynx and came to the conclusion that torrential rains were common
over 13,000 years ago (and of course earlier, as that was only a "last date"
- since the date on when the Sphynx actually carved, was perhaps many
thousands of years earlier -- how many years of exposure (as in the case,
for instance, of the Ellora caves in Central India have those structures
been exposed to the monsoon rains and eroded ? - still this period and era
is unknown in regard to Egypt - and Where did those rains come from? Was
the Sahara then a sea? And its climate contributed to caused the erosion.
[Anthony West? ]
The arrangement of the Pyramids and several temples in the delta of the Nile
are said to coincide with the positions of the main stars in Orion and Canis
Major ought also to be checked and verified and kept alive.
We have also had since Mars was closely examined the matter of the 5 sided
pyramid and the seemingly human face outline found on Mars. Are these
"coincidences" (some of Nature quirks and fancies?) or, were they left as
evidence for explorers, such as we have become, to seek to understand and
secure some reason for.
Von Danegan (spelling ?) [ 1980s and 90s] wrote a number of sensational
books about anomalies, strange artifacts, evidence of art in layers of
strata that antedate those layers in which only evidence of savage and
primitive tools have been found.
Why this evidence? Why now? What can Theosophy offer as found around the
world - with photographs and other testimony - who among us is
systematically following up on such things? Or even cataloging them?
Have they any relevancy to Theosophy and its chronology?
What about the study of paleo-climatology? What changes in land mass may
have caused those? This could be tied in with paleo-geology ?
I recall that Velikovsky in his books (1940s) made a point of indicating
there was no reasonable explanation for vast deposits of fossil, found in
impossible profusion and jumbled in certain areas - his idea was there had
been a sudden shifting of the planetary axis - and in certain areas where
surface exposure led to there being no protection, trees, animals, rocks,
etc, slid over the surface of the earth which suddenly changed its spin
direction -- and were finally jammed in jumbled heaps against the face of
certain mountains and in canyons that were able to resist such a change and
flow - and provide a shelter for this mass of detritus.
Many mysteries -- and one could write some interesting and thought
provoking books about them.
[ For instance, in very recent years we have FORBIDDEN ARCHAEOLOGY by Cremo
and Johnson -- and, as a follow up, an equally large volume recording the
way in which the scientific community received its publication.]
I append hereto some outlines of a chronology constructed from hints given
in Theosophical literature. [It is only a sketch and needs to be added
to.]Perhaps someone will help.
There are in our Theosophy magazines already a fair grouping of records
pertaining to anomalies: --
In Theosophy Magazine, (Los Angeles) now in its 85th volume -- see
ON THE LOOKOUT -- month after month.
In The THEOSOPHICAL MOVEMENT Magazine (Bombay) now in its 75th volume see IN
THE LIGHT OF THEOSOPHY -- items month after month.
Culled, edited, an put into book-form, these would make very provocative

A THEOSOPHICAL VIEW OF CHRONOLOGY
The sub-title given to this survey indicates the attention
that H.P.Blavatsky paid to the historical, factual aspect, of the records of
the Adepts. ( SD I 272 )
Students of Theosophy take into account certain foundational
concepts, such as :--
1. Reincarnation: that we are essentially
in our spiritual, natures, Immortals, and have lived many lives on this
2. that Karma, the law of justice and of
fairness to all beings (from the atom to Galaxy) is The Law for every aspect
of the Universe; and that it consists of an harmonic balance at all points;
so that all circumstances can be traced to choices made earlier;
3. the ideal of Human Brotherhood is not a
myth but a solid fact as science and psychology demonstrate daily that we
share in each other, as in all aspects of Nature; and finally,
4. There is an actual, a Universal All--an
Encompassing Unity (or Causation), which forms the living and sensitive
base for all evolution and all individual consciousness.

My first name is Jacques, I am almost 55 now, and a T.S member since 1980.
I had the opportunity to join this discussion list back in the mid 90' during one of my stay in US. I am now back to France and ready to share again some ideas on Theosophical subjects.
We (together with my spouse Anne-Marie who joined T.S. at the same time than me) have had 4 children (and 2 grand-children by now).
I am working since 30 years in aerospace industry as an electronic engineer.
My main topic of interest is the relationships between modern science and theosophical teachings (a subject HPB spent some time with...).
