9/11 Masonic Symbology

In 1998 the U.S. Department of Justice FEMA Emergency Response to Terrorism Guide had a cover picture showing the WorldTradeCenter in crosshairs.  Another symbolic representation of the 9/11 events was encoded into the year 2000 $20 bill which when folded a certain way resembles the smoking/damaged TwinTowers and the Pentagon.  Rap group “The Coup” album “Party Music” which came out just after 9/11, originally in June 2001, had an album cover featuring the artists affront both WTC towers which have huge explosions/smoke clouds from the upper floors.  And in Steve Jackson’s 1995 “Illuminati – New World Order” role-playing card game, he “predicted” both the attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.  Granted some of this pre 9/11 symbolism could be sheer coincidence, but can you honestly explain away all these synchronicities so simply?


The Hebrew Kabalistic Tree of Life (studied in-depth by Masons) displays the Roman numerals IX-XI (9-11) when the tree has “fallen” or is shown on its side.  And in the Tarot (also studied by Masons) there is much significance as well. The Major Arcana card “The Tower” shows a tall tower being struck by lightning, fire coming out the windows, and people falling to their deaths – all of which happened on 9/11, if the lightning is symbolically substituted by an airplane. In “The High Priestess” tarot card, Isis (the Statue of Liberty) is seen between the black and white Masonic pillars of Mercy and Severity, Boaz and Jachin (the TwoTowers). The 13th “Death” tarot card also shows two towers with the sun between them.

In Freemasonry the two/three pillars are very important and well-known to every Mason. One of the largest Masonic websites is called “The Three Pillars.”

They are depicted on the 1st degree tracing board and they are the 3 columns of the Kabalistic Tree of Life. The pillars of Solomon’s temple – Sol-Om-On three words all meaning “Sun” – relate to this as well (note: WTC 7 was the SalomonBrothersBuilding). The right pillar of Mercy is Male and the left pillar of Severity is Female. Between them is the third androgynous pillar of enlightenment and illumination. This is symbolically depicted in the Tarot Death card where the sun is rising between two towers/pillars. In Da Vinci’s Last Supper, the back wall with two windows can be viewed as three towers/pillars. On the right is a man pointing representing the phallic/masculine, on the left is a very effeminate John representing the feminine, and the Sun/Son Jesus is in the middle.

In the movie Spider-Man there was a deleted-scene with the sun rising between the TwinTowers symbolizing this as well.

Notice (SS) Sharon Stone like ISIS is between the two pillars/bars. Just as Isis holds the scales of Justice in her hands, the caption to “Last Dance” says “Sometimes Justice is a Crime.”

More important, however, is the fact that Mary Magdalene can be seen as being associated with both a tower and the number seven. The name Magdalene can be literally translated from the Greek as meaning ‘tower’ and, as we have seen , this association between the terms ‘tower’ and ‘seven’ is present in the famous Biblical quotation: Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the Tower of Seven even unto the border of Ethiopia. So, Ezekiel’s ‘Tower of Seven’ is none other than the Egyptian ‘Magdal of Sefekh,’ the same title that is now being associated with Mary Magdalene. The Tower of Sefekh was historically seen to be a prime symbol of Egypt and because of his notoriety it has already been identified as with the Great Pyramid (The GreatTower) of Egypt.”Ralph Ellis, “Solomon Falcon of Sheba” (126-7)

So overlooking the 7 WorldTradeCenter towers is the Statue of Liberty, Isis/Mary the Tower of Seven, wearing a 7-pointed crown. Just as in the sky Sirius (Isis) stands beside the 3 stars of Orion’s (Osirus’) Belt, on the ground Isis (the Statue of Liberty) stands beside 3 collapsing towers. The three buildings that collapsed, buildings 1, 2 and 7, perfectly replicate in size and distance both the 3 pyramids at Giza and the 3 stars in Orion’s Belt.

WTC buildings 1 and 2 were very tall with a shorter building 7 off to the side. Similarly, there are 2 large pyramids at Giza and a smaller pyramid off to the side. Not to mention, before being destroyed on 9/11 there actually stood a huge model of the 3 Giza pyramids at the base of the WorldTradeCenter.

The Giza pyramids themselves were modeled after Orion’s Belt which consists of 2 bright stars and another slightly less bright one off to the side. The ancient Egyptians associated Orion’s Belt with the God Osirus, the husband of Isis/Sirius. Their son is our sun, Horus, the Egyptian Jesus.

“For instance, this is why the tracing board portrays the three pillars as all being of different heights, with two larger pillars in the foreground and a much smaller one behind. This is not simply a matter of perspective, as the two foreground pillars are placed at exactly the same depth within the picture, but are given slightly different heights; while a much smaller pillar lies behind. Yet this depiction exactly reflects the reality at Giza, where two major pyramids are nearly but not quite of the same height, while the third is much smaller.” -Ralph Ellis, “Eden in Egypt” (165)

Sirius, the dog-star, is so called because it lies in the constellation Canis Major. Canine, Latin for dog, was shortened by the Masons/Hollywood to K-9 in Doctor Who and Rin Tin Tin K-9 Cop. NASA even has a Mars rover called K-9. Since K is the 11th letter of the alphabet, K-9 is numerically 119 or 911.

Before 1679 the constellation Columba (the Dove) occupied the same space as (was one with) Canis Major/Sirius. Since then the two constellations have drifted apart, but symbolically the Illuminati still associate the Dove with Sirius/Isis/Mary.  

The Columbine “blazing star” flower, Colombe meaning Dove, is a 5-petaled flower. In ancient Egypt the hieroglyph for Sirius included a 5-pointed star. In the U.S. District of “Columbia” the Masons built numerous 5-pointed star pentagrams into the roads/architecture. Is it not coincidental how the 5-sided Pentagon building would be attacked on 9/11, the same day it began construction 60 years prior? And is it not interesting how the numbers 911 and 5 relate back to Sirius the K-9, and Sirius the Columbine 5-pointed blazing star?

9/11 Symbolism in Hollywood

In Hollywood’s many Masonic productions, we find the 9/11 World Trade Center “terrorist” attacks alluded to in several films long before 2001! (This propaganda technique is known as Predictive Programming or Revelation of the Method)  In 20th Century Fox’s 1988 film Die Hard the first lines are spoken on a plane about how to get over the fear of flying. One guy says what he has done for 9 years and Bruce Willis says what he has been doing for 11 years. So here we have 911, on a plane, talking about fears of flying, from a Masonic production company (notice the one-eye symbolism). In the first Die Hard, John McClane (Bruce Willis) takes on 12 terrorists in a tower; in the second movie it’s terrorists at an airport. Isn’t it interesting how in the 1988 movie we have John McClane afraid of flying, terrorists, towers, 9/11, and in 2008 we had John McCain on a presidential fear campaign revolving around terrorists, towers, and 9/11?

In 1998 we also have Bruce Willis saving the world in Masonic Disney/Touchstone’s Armageddon. Toward the end of the movie there is a countdown which passes 9:11 minutes just as the camera pans past.

In another 1998 Disney/Touchstone film, Enemy of the State, a politician played by Jon Voight has his birthday on September 11th.

 
In Warner Bros. 1990 film Gremlins 2 there are two reporters from channels 9 and 11 holding microphones with those numbers juxtaposed.

In the 1990 Universal film Problem Child the Healy’s live at house number 911. The actor in this movie, John Ritter, in real life had a baby girl, Stella Ritter born on 9/11/98, then 5 years later suddenly and suspiciously John died on 9/11/03. At first glance these synchronicities may seem like mere coincidence until you realize their Masonic significance, and Hollywood’s Masonic dominance.

In the 1993 Super Mario Brothers movie the TwoTowers are depicted eerily half destroyed and smoking just as they would be on 9/11/01. In the movie, the TwinTowers each have on them a large symbol of a hand holding two lightning bolts. This is the very aspect of Tarot imagery from “The Tower” card substituted by “hijacked” planes on 9/11.

In 33rd Degree Mason James Cameron and Columbia Tri-Star’s 1991 Terminator II, Judgment Day, there is an overpass that warns “Caution 9-11.”

In the 1996 film Independence Day, there is also a countdown which just happens to pass 09:11:01 (9/11/01) as the camera pans across.  At the start of another Columbia Tri-Star Picture, 2000’s The 6th Day, Arnold Schwarzenegger looks at his schedule which has only two times: 9:00 and 11:00.

The same year in Columbia’s The Patriot, Mel Gibson’s first words, weighing a chair, in the film, are: “9 pounds, 11 ounces, perfect.” Here we have 911, the “patriotic” concept of the post-911 “Patriot Act,” a Masonic production company, a Masonic measuring device and symbol of the mystery schools, ounces or OZ (77) revenge of Lamech, and the closing word, “perfect.”

In 1997 DreamWorks’ first film, The Peacemaker, George Clooney is shot perfectly between aisle 9 and 11.

In a 1997 episode of the Simpsons, Lisa holds up a magazine that reads “New York $9” with a picture of the TwinTowers after the 9 which looks like 911.

In 1998’s Godzilla the camera cuts to a wrist-watch showing 8:55 with the little hand on the 9 and the big hand on the 11.

In 1999’s The Thirteenth Floor a wall clock shows 11:45 with the big hand on the 9 and the little hand on the 11. In Universal/Columbia’s 1999 The Bone Collector, Denzel Washington finds a piece of paper from page 119, and the date is 11/9, November 9th.

In Warner Bros. 1999 film The Matrix, Neo’s passport expires on exactly Sept. 11, 2001!

In 2000’s Traffic, a large delivery truck is shown full of boxes, and on every single box are a Scorpio/scorpion symbol and the number 911.


In March, 2001 (6 months before 9/11) the pilot episode for The Lone Gunman aired on FOX with the plotline of terrorists hijacking a plane and crashing it into the World Trade Center! Let me guess, these are all just coincidence, and I’m just a crazy conspiracy theorist, right?

The Freemasonic Statue of Liberty

Did you know the Statue of Liberty was given to America by French Freemasons? There is another statue just like it in France on an island in the Seine. The character propagated as “Lady Liberty,” supposedly derived from the Roman goddess Libertus, is simply a patriotic pseudonym for the public. Lady Liberty has been known throughout history as Isis of Egypt, Semiramis/Ishtar of Babylon, Athena of Greece, Astarte of Syria, Cybele of Rome, Ashtoreth of Israel, and Diana of Ephesus. She is the Pagan mother Goddess of the Brotherhood, nearly always depicted dressed in robe, wearing a crown of thorns, and carrying the torch of illumination. She is symbolic of both the Moon and “dog-star” Sirius, which is why the English word for God is simply Dog backwards. The “dog days” of summer was coined after Sirius and was believed to be an evil time. J. Brady in “Clavis Calendarium” says the dog days were known as a time “when the seas boiled, wine turned sour, dogs grew mad, and all creatures became languid, causing to man burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies.” This hot time was associated with hot-headedness. This is why you’re Sirius when you’re Serious. This is also the occult origin of the all-American “hot dog.” July 4th, America’s Independence Day, just happens to be the 2nd of Sirius’ dog days – an important date to the pre-Masonic Knights Templar.

It is the date of the Templar’s massive defeat by Muslim armies in the Holy Land at the Horns of Hattin on 4 July AD 1187, which was followed by the loss of Jerusalem to Christendom. There could therefore hardly be a more evocative ‘Templar’ or ‘Solomonic’ date than 4 July – evocative, that is, of the aspiration to build Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. The reader will also be aware, of course, that 4 July is Independence Day in the US, commemorating the signature of the Declaration of Independence and converting the date forever into a powerful talisman that spells out ‘Independence’ and ‘Freedom” for the New World and, now by and large, for a new world order.” -Graham Hancock and Robert Buaval, “Talisman” (470)

The symbol for the U.S. dollar is $, sometimes with one or two vertical lines. The “S” and “I” have nothing to do with “dollars” and everything to do with “ISIS.” The Egyptian Goddess of the Moon and Sirius was “ISIS” and this is the most common name for her used by the Brotherhood. The dollar sign is actually an occult talisman to this Illuminati Goddess. This is why both the Statue of Liberty/Isis and her dollars are both the same color green. The ancient roots of the word Moon were “mon” and “min” which is why we have “money” made at the “mint.” The very idea of money and symbolic currency comes from ancient secret societies.
 

“Silver was connected with the moon and therefore with the Goddesses of the moon, the most famous of which was and is ISIS. So her name became the symbol of money. We find this today in the cleverly camouflaged motif – $- which is nothing more than the sigil for the name of I-S-I-S, but fused together in an ingenious manner.” -Michael Tsarion, “Astrotheology and Sidereal Mythology”

The Biology of Belief

Our brains are made up of tiny nerve cells called “neurons” which branch out and connect to each other forming a neural network.  At each connection point, thoughts and emotions are incubated and holographically stored by associative memory.  This means that all ideas, thoughts, feelings, and memories are interconnected and have possible relationships with one another.  For instance the concept of motherhood is stored in all our neural networks, but each person’s concept is built from their own unique amalgamation of ideas, emotions and past experiences.  Some people may have motherhood connected to unconditional love and forgiveness, so when they think about motherhood, they experience memories/feelings of happiness and acceptance.  Other people may have motherhood connected to disappointment and ridicule, so when they think about motherhood, they experience memories/feelings of rejection and depression.  We all build our own neural networks based on our own subjective experiences, how we perceive and what we believe.  

What we ultimately do is tell ourselves a story about what the outside world is.  Any information that we process, any information that we take in from the environment is always colored by the experiences that we’ve had and an emotional response that we’re having to what we’re bringing in.  Who is in the driver’s seat when we control our emotions or we respond to our emotions?  We know physiologically that nerve cells that fire together, wire together.  If you practice something over and over, those nerve cells have a long-term relationship.  If you get angry on a daily basis, if you get frustrated on a daily basis, if you suffer on a daily basis, if you give reason for the victimization in your life, you’re rewiring and reintegrating that neural net on a daily basis, and that neural net now has a long-term relationship with all those other nerve cells called an ‘identity.’  We also know that nerve cells that don’t fire together, no longer wire together.  They lose their long-term relationship because every time we interrupt the thought process that produces a chemical response in the body, every time we interrupt it, those nerve cells that are connected to each other start breaking the long-term relationship.”  -Dr. Joe Dispenza, “What the Bleep Do We Know?
 

Inside our brains, the hypothalamus acts like
a tiny factory assembling various chemicals called “peptides,” small chain
amino acid sequences that match the different emotions we experience.  There are quite literally chemical
combinations for sadness, chemical combinations for anger, chemical
combinations for fear, and chemical combinations for love.  There are chemical combinations to match
every emotional state we experience.  So
the moment we feel anger, the hypothalamus immediately assembles a
complementary neuro-peptide or neuro-hormone and releases it through the
pituitary gland into the blood stream. 
Once in the bloodstream, the peptides/hormones work their way through
the body and we begin developing long-term relationships between
thoughts/emotions and our physical biochemistry.  



Candace Pert, former chief of brain biochemistry at the National Institute of Mental Health, believes the separation of mind and body is also an illusion.  She and her co-workers have discovered that neuropeptides previously thought to exist only in the brain are found throughout the body.  Neuropeptides are known to be important in the flow of electrical activity, resulting in transmission of electrical signals from one neuron to another when emotional activity is going on.  Thus, they are believed to be messenger molecules literally carrying information around the brain.  Finding them throughout the body suggests that mind is present throughout the body and that emotions are the links between matter and mind.”  -Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., “The Spiritual Universe” (193)

Thoughts
change brain chemistry. That sounds so simple but that’s the way it is, with
our thoughts changing neurotransmitters on a daily basis. If a man walks into a
room with a gun, we think “threat”, and the brain releases norepinephrine. We
become tense, alert, develop sweaty palms, and our heart beats faster. If he
then bites the barrel of the gun, telling us the gun is actually chocolate, the
brain rapidly changes its opinion and we relax and laugh — the joke is on us…
We feel what we think! Positive thinking works. As the above example suggests,
what we think about a situation actually creates our mood. Passed over for a
promotion, we can either think we’ll never get ahead in this job (lowering
serotonin and making us depressed) or assume that we are being held back for
another promotion or job transfer (makes a better mood).”
  -Dr. Joseph M. Carver PhD, “Emotional Memory
Management: Positive Control Over Your Memory”

Every
single cell in the body has thousands of peptide receptors scattered around its
surface.  When a peptide enters a
receptor it sends a signal to the cell which actually alters its physical and
chemical makeup.  If we are constantly
bombarding our cells with the same negative attitudes, emotions, and beliefs,
our biochemistry adapts by creating more receptor sites for those particular
peptides.  This leaves less receptors for
essentials like nutrients, vitamins, minerals, fluid exchange, detoxing and as
a result we start becoming physically/chemically addicted to the peptides
produced by our negative emotions. 



We bring to ourselves situations that will fulfill the biochemical craving of the cells of our body by creating situations that meet our chemical needs.  And the addict will always need a little bit more in order to get a rush or a high of what they’re looking for chemically.  So my definition really means that if you can’t control your emotional state, you must be addicted to it … It’s biochemical.  Think about this.  Heroin uses the same receptor mechanisms on the cells that our emotional chemicals use.  It’s easy to see then that if we can be addicted to heroin then we can be addicted to any neural peptide, any emotion.”  -Dr. Joe Dispenza, “What the Bleep Do We Know?


Much like drug addicts, people often become physically/chemically addicted and dependent on various negative states of being such as depression, victimization, frustration, or jealousy.  Over time we crave more of the peptides we’re addicted to and create repetitive dramas in our lives in order to receive our next dose.  As this behavior continues and our unhealthy cells divide, they create sickly offspring with more receptors for neuropeptides, less receptors for essential nutrients, and become unable to carry on proper protein production.

Now,
all aging is the result of improper protein production. What happens when we
age? Our skin loses elasticity. Well, elastin is a protein. What happens to our
enzymes? We don’t digest as well. What happens to our synovial fluid? Those are
proteins that become brittle and stiff. What happens to our bones? They become
thin. So all aging is a result of improper protein production. So then the
question arises … does nutrition really have an effect if the cell doesn’t even
have the receptor sites after years of emotional abuse to even receive or to
let in the nutrients that are necessary for its health?
” -JZ
Knight, “What the Bleep Do We Know?


Here we see once
again how negative thoughts/emotions/beliefs, especially habitual patterns,
lead to physical disease and degeneration. 
On the flip side however, living with positive, life-affirming,
non-limiting thoughts/emotions/beliefs leads to physical health, wellness, and
even miraculous supernormal abilities.


One such ability
of mind over matter is known as “Inedia” or “Breatharianism.”  While normal people die after a couple months
without food, or a few days without water, breatharians have lived for years
without either!  For example, a devout
Christian named Therese Neumann did not eat or drink for 35 years.  In 1923 she began to drink only liquids and
by 1927 she stopped even that.  Under the
close eye of a medical doctor and four Franciscan nurses, she was watched 24
hours a day and confirmed not to have eaten or drank anything for 2 weeks with
no ill-effects, dehydration or weight loss.  


When
the local bishop in Regensburg first learned of Neumann’s fast, he sent a
commission into her home to investigate. 
From July 14, 1927, to July 29, 1927, and under the supervision of a
medical doctor named Seidl, four Franciscan nursing sisters scrutinized her
every move.  They watched her day and
night, and the water she used for washing and rinsing her mouth was carefully
measured and weighed.  The sisters
discovered several unusual things about Neumann.  She never went to the bathroom (even after a
period of six weeks she only had one bowel movement, and the excrement,
examined by a Dr. Reismanns, contained only a small amount of mucus and bile,
but no traces of food).  She also showed
no signs of dehydration, even though the average human expels about four
hundred grams of water daily in the air he or she exhales, and a like amount
through the pores.  And her weight
remained constant … At the end of the inquiry Dr. Seidl and the sisters were
completely convinced that Neumann had not eaten or drunk a thing for the entire
fourteen days.  The test seems
conclusive, for while the human body can survive two weeks without food, it can
rarely survive half that time without water. 
Yet this was nothing for Neumann; she did not eat or drink a thing for
the next thirty-five years.
”  -Michael
Talbot, “The Holographic Universe” (153)





Jainist Hira
Ratan Manek claims not to have eaten anything since 1995.  He has been studied under controlled
conditions by teams of scientists and doctors many times and was never observed
to eat or drink at all.  One time he went
211 days under careful supervision, another time 411 days.  Even more impressive, 81 year-old Indian
Sadhu Prahlad Jani claims not to have eaten or drunk anything for 70
years!  He was also studied carefully
under 24 hour CCTV surveillance for weeks at a time by medical professionals
and didn’t eat, drink, urinate, or deficate. 
Many more examples of documented inedia can be found in Herbert
Thurston’s book “The Physical Phenomena of Mysticism.”




In the
1970s, Jack Schwarz, a Dutch-born author and lecturer, astounded researchers in
laboratories across the United States with his ability to willfully control his
body’s internal biological processes.  In
studies conducted at the Menninger Foundation, the University of California’s
Langley Porter Neuropsychiatric Institute, and other, Schwarz astonished
doctors by sticking mammoth six-inch sailmaker’s needles completely through his
arms without bleeding, without flinching, and without producing beta brain
waves (the type of brain waves normally produced when a person is in
pain).  Even when the needles were
removed, Schwarz still did not bleed, and the puncture holes closed
tightly.  In addition, Schwarz altered
his brain-wave rhythms at will, held burning cigarettes against his flesh
without harming himself, and even carried live coals around in his hands … He believes anyone can learn voluntary control of their body and thus
gain responsibility for his or her own health
.”  -Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe” (102-3)




In 1947,
during public performances at the Corso Theater in Zurich, Mirin Dajo stunned
audiences with his extreme piercings. 
Dajo would have an assistant stab a fencing sword completely through his
abdomen, clearly piercing vital organs, yet somehow causing him no pain or
lasting injury.  When the sword was
removed he did not bleed and had only two small red spots at the entry and exit
points.  Dajo’s performances were so
gut-wrenching and nerve-racking that one spectator actually suffered a heart
attack while watching.  Having piqued the
interest of one Swiss doctor named Hans Naegeli-Osjord, Dajo was invited to
Switzerland to have his abilities formally studied under laboratory
conditions.  In front of a group of doctors
and journalists, Dajo had his assistant stab him through with the steel rapier
and as always he did not bleed or even flinch. 
He then calmly walked upstairs with doctors to take his X-ray which
undeniably proved that no trickery was involved and he was indeed impaled.  Dajo was later tested again by scientists in
Basel and allowed them to personally stab him. 
He even insisted that they treat him roughly and jogged several blocks
while impaled to show his tolerance for pain.  




Mirin Dago
and Jack Schwartz’s stories are certainly amazing but far from unique.  Hawaiian Kahunas, Indian Yogis, African
Shamans and others have traditionally trained to control their pain receptors
so as to perform extreme piercings, lie on beds of nails, and walk on burning
hot coals.  




For thousands
of years, people of many different cultures and religions from all parts of the
world have practiced fire walking. A recent Guinness World Record for longest
fire walk was set by 23-year-old Canadian Amanda Dennison in June 2005. Amanda
walked 220 feet over coals that measured 1,600 to1,800 degrees Fahrenheit.
Amanda didn’t jump or fly, which means her feet were in direct contact with the
glowing coals for the full 30 seconds it took her to complete the walk.  Many people attribute the ability to remain
burn-free during such a walk to paranormal phenomena. In contrast, physicists
suggest that the presumed danger is an illusion, claiming the embers are not
great conductors of heat and that the walker’s feet have limited contact with
the coals. Yet, very few scoffers have actually removed their shoes and socks
and traversed the glowing coals, and none have matched the feat of Amanda’s
feet. Besides, if the coals are really as benign as the physicists suggest, how
do they account for severe burns experienced by large numbers of ‘accidental
tourists’ on their firewalks?
”  -Dr.
Bruce Lipton, “Spontaneous Evolution



For most people,
fire walking will burn their feet, extreme piercings will cause severe
pain/bleeding, and prolonged dry fasting will result in certain death, but for
people who have reprogrammed their psyches with non-limiting beliefs, such
feats become attainable.  Another example
is extreme weight lifting.  The strongest
record-holding bodybuilders can dead lift about 700-800 pounds (400-500 for
females) but under intense psychological pressure untrained unathletic people
have actually lifted several times this weight and held it for minutes at a
time!


To save her
trapped son, Angela Cavallo lifted a 1964 Chevrolet and held it up for five
minutes while neighbors arrived, reset a jack, and rescued her unconscious boy.
Similarly, a construction worker lifted a 3,000-pound helicopter that had
crashed into a drainage ditch, trapping his buddy under water. In this feat
captured on video, the man held the aircraft aloft while others pulled his
friend from beneath the wreckage.  To
dismiss these feats as the consequence of an adrenaline rush misses the point.
Adrenaline or not, how can an untrained average man or woman lift and hold a
half ton or more for an extended duration? 
These stories are remarkable because neither Ms. Cavallo nor the
construction worker could have performed such acts of superhuman strength under
normal circumstances. The idea of lifting a car or helicopter is unimaginable.
But with the life of their child or friend hanging in the balance, these people
unconsciously suspended their limiting beliefs and focused their intention on
the foremost belief at that moment: I must save this life!

What Makes Wing Chun Kung-Fu "The Science of Self-Defense"?

There are thousands of known and practiced martial arts from
every country in the world, and though all martial systems are based on human combat,
different styles have different focuses and blind-spots, strengths and
weaknesses. Some martial styles are based around ancient esoteric forms and traditions,
others are more geared towards sports competitions, and some are designed to maim,
disable and kill people as efficiently and effectively as possible.  Wing Chun is among the latter.
Being a peaceful warrior and vegetarian myself, I aim to
never injure or kill any living creature, but if necessary in self-defense or
in the defense of innocents, if violence is being committed against me or a
loved one, I will use every weapon available to me to incapacitate that
aggressor.  Wing Chun is such a versatile
and superior system, however, that even against deadly aggression, a skilled
Wing Chun practitioner can diffuse and re-direct an opponents’ energy
indefinitely without ever having to actually physically harm them. 
Tai Chi and Aikido masters also train and develop this
ability to completely dominate and control an adversary without ever having to
hurt them.  Only such “soft style”
martial arts can develop this ability because only the soft styles train with
the principle of “no force against force.” 
Muay Thai, Boxing, Kickboxing, Karate, Taekwondo, and Wrestling for
example are all hard styles which train brute force against force, conditioning
arms and legs for repeated bone on bone hits. 
If you’re a strong young man with solid bones and big muscles preparing
for combat or competition, such hard style bone on bone conditioning is a must,
but Wing Chun wasn’t developed by a big strong young man preparing for combat
or competition, Wing Chun was developed by a small weak old woman preparing for
self-defense.
Wing Chun is in fact the only martial art known to have been
invented by a woman.  Ng Mui, a Shaolin
nun on the run from the Manchu government, created Wing Chun as a system of
self-defense that women, or smaller, weaker, slower, older people could
successfully use to defeat men, or bigger, stronger, faster, younger
adversaries.  By allowing the aggressor
to lead, the soft style practitioner, like the woman in couples dancing, is
completely receptive and responsive to the man’s motions and movements then
mirrors him in real-time. 
Through sensitivity training like “Chi Sao” (sticky hands)
and “Chi Gerk” (sticky legs), Wing Chun practitioners develop the ability to
receptively respond, re-direct and diffuse or use the opponent’s energy against
them.  By “bridging” and sticking to their
limbs we receive constant tactile information allowing us to manipulate and
stay ahead of attacks. 

Looking at human anatomy Wing Chun notices that the eyes,
throat, groin and several of our other main vulnerable targets all rest along
the body’s centerline.  For this and many
other reasons we always attack and defend along the center, since both the
opponent’s and our most vulnerable targets are right there.  Then we extend our longest weapons forward
like “Bil Gee” thrusting fingers into the opponent’s eyes and knee stomp kicks
into their lead leg.
There is an axiom in geometry that states “the shortest
distance between two points is a straight line.”  This is another reason Wing Chun
practitioners always strike and defend straight ahead along the center.  If the opponent initiates a circular attack
like a roundhouse kick or hooking punch, we simply advance straight ahead with
a mirrored straight attack which allows our strike to land first.  This is known as “economy of motion” and is
one of Wing Chun’s main mathematical principles.  Instead of blocking first then hitting back
as in most martial arts, a Wing Chun man will simultaneously block and hit
while the opponent is still mid-strike. 
This gives us the surprise factor and results in double the damage
because the opponent’s forward energy is met head on with our straight forward
attack.

There is an axiom in physics that states “no two objects can
occupy the same space at the same time.” 
Keeping this in mind Wing Chun practitioners always aim to occupy the
centerline with our punches and kicks, yielding to and re-directing all
obstacles in the way, but constantly replacing our limbs back across the
center.  Once we control the center by
bridging a bent arm/leg we use sticky hands/legs sensitivity to feel and
exploit the opponent’s under and over-commitments.
The triangle or pyramid is the strongest shape in nature and
recognizing this, Wing Chun repeatedly uses triangles and 45/60 degree angles
in its structure and movements.  For
example when training we stand slightly pigeon-toed with knees bent in and extend
both arms frontwards making three triangles with our arms, legs, and feet.  The upper triangle, like a door wedge, allows
us to easily control the centerline and the lower triangles allow us to receive
incredible amounts of forward energy without having to back up.  

When parrying and attacking we constantly use the power of
45/60 degree angles to deflect, re-direct and cut through our opponent’s
defenses.  The Wing Chun knee stomp kick
45 degrees downward just above the knee-joint is absolutely the easiest and
most effective leg breaking technique in existence.  If massive force is directed at our
centerlines like with a sidekick, Muay Thai teep kick, or a running tackle, we
triangle side-step and advance at 45/60 degrees allowing us to overtake their
position using not brute strength or muscle, but just the power of angles.  If a strong punch comes along our centerline,
we pivot 45 degrees and throw our own centerline punch which cuts through
theirs allowing us to block and strike simultaneously. 
When Wing Chun practitioners kick we don’t chamber our legs
first then extend out straight at 90 degree angles like most Taekwondo, Muay
Thai, or Kickboxing kicks, because as Newton’s axiom warns us, “for every force
or action there is an equal and opposite force or reaction.”  If a smaller, weaker person performs a Muay
Thai teep kick to the trunk of a bigger, stronger adversary, when that kick
connects, instead of pushing back the adversary, that direct force will come straight
back and the power of your own kick will launch you straight backwards.  If instead front and side kicks are performed
Wing Chun style, with no chamber, foot rising straight from ground to target at
a 45 degree angle, the equal and opposite force is absorbed and earthed completely
by our back legs. 
The “immovable elbow” principle of Wing Chun comes from the
observation that our arms are at their strongest and most stable when held
straight ahead about a fist-distance away from our abdomen elbows bent at 135
degrees.  Bent at any more of an angle,
strength is quickly diminished, we become unbalanced and vulnerable to being
pulled; bent at any less of an angle, strength is diminished and we become
vulnerable to being pushed or taken down. 
By maintaining this bent arm ready stance, hitting and replacing chain
punches at 135 degrees along the centerline we maximize balance, speed, power
and control.
There are many more examples and reasons why Wing Chun trulyis the science of self-defense, but suffice to say, by taking into account aspects
of physics, kinesthesiology, geometry, and anatomy Wing Chun is less like a
martial art and more like martial science. 
The art part is in the application, the drilling and training, making
the science subconscious and second-nature, embedding the muscle-memory,
learning to channel the opponent’s energy, and successfully expressing yours.

Morphic Fields and Morphogenic Resonance

Another short-coming of traditional Western science is its inability to
explain the existence of forms in nature. 
No matter how we magnify or manipulate the material world, no mechanical
model explains the emergence of the variety of unique and semi-unique forms in
nature.  Every type of rock, plant,
animal, organism, bacteria, all aggregate themselves into distinct and definite
types with traits/characteristics semi-unique to their form and completely
unique to them individually.  For example
each oak tree has many semi-unique features that characterize it clearly as an
oak and not a pine, like the shape of its leaves, being non-coniferous,
etc.  These features are semi-unique as
all oak trees share them, however on another level, no two oak trees are
exactly alike either.  Exact size, shape,
dimensions, growth patterns, ring patterns etc. are completely unique to each
tree.  So what is the mechanism in nature
which constantly creates these unique and semi-unique forms?  Newton’s model, nor the 300+ subsequent years
of material science since have been able to explain this.  British biologist Rupert Sheldrake’s concept
of morphogenic resonance, however, seems to be our best current theory.

British biologist Rupert Sheldrake has offered an incisive critique
of traditional science … He pointed out that in its single-minded pursuit of
‘energetic causation,’ Western science neglected the problem of form in
nature.  He pointed out that our study of
substance alone cannot explain why there is order, pattern, and meaning in
nature any more than the examination of the building materials in a cathedral,
castle, or tenement house can explain the particular forms those architectural
structures have taken.  No matter how
sophisticated our study of the materials, we will not be able to explain the
creative forces that guided the designs of these structures.  Sheldrake suggests that forms in nature are
governed by what he calls ‘morphogenic fields,’ which cannot be detected or
measured by contemporary science.  This
would mean that all scientific efforts of the past have totally neglected a
dimension that is absolutely critical for understanding the nature of reality
.”  -Stanislav Grof, “The Holotropic Mind” (11)

As an example Sheldrake asks us to consider the complexity of the human
body.  For instance, take notice of your
arms, how they twist, bend, and rotate, notice how your fingers separate and
clasp with opposable thumbs, giving your upper-limbs unique function and
purpose.  Now take notice of your legs,
how they are designed, how they bend and move, notice your feet/toes, and how
your lower-limbs perfectly serve their unique function and purpose.  Arms and legs look different; have different
functions and locations, but the DNA, chemicals, nerves, cells and molecules
composing them are exactly the same.  So
how did they become different and why? 
What property within leg cells determined them to become a leg, and what
property within arm cells determined them to become an arm? 

Sheldrake proposes a theory he calls Morphic Resonance.  This theory basically states that there is a
field of energy surrounding and permeating an organism which contains, among
other things, the form of the organism. 
He writes that each species has its own field, that there are fields
within fields, and that these fields have built-in memory, based upon what has
happened in the past derived from previous organisms or forms of a similar
kind.  In other words, each organism on
the planet shares fields of similar energy or we could say a specific frequency.”
  -Eric Pepin, “Handbook of the Navigator” (78)

What biological mechanism recognizes, stores, and develops the
evolution and various adaptations of a species? 
If a species of insect develops camouflage coloration like nearby
foliage to hide from predators, where is that information stored?  If a species of bird develops curvature in
its beak to assist in gathering low-laying food/materials, what mechanism
informs new beak cells to curve?   The
typical answer is that this information is stored and transmitted by genes/DNA,
however, no biologist can explain how this occurs.  Sheldrake compares it to studying building
materials at a construction site and attempting to determine the structure of
the house to be built.
British biologist Rupert Sheldrake has mounted one of the most
constant and vociferous challenges to this approach …Current genetic theory
also doesn’t explain, he says, how a developing system can self-regulate, or
grow normally in the course of development if a part of the system is added or
removed, and doesn’t explain how an organism regenerates – replacing missing or
damaged structures.  In a rush of fevered
inspiration while at an ashram in India, Sheldrake worked out his hypothesis of
formative causation, which states that the forms of self-organizing living
things – everything from molecules and organisms to societies and even entire
galaxies – are shaped by morphic fields. 
These fields have a morphic resonance – a cumulative memory – of similar
systems through cultures and time, so that species of animals and plants
‘remember’ not only how to look but also how to act … ‘Morphic resonance,’ is,
in his view, ‘the influence of like upon like through space and time.’  He believes these fields are different from
electro-magnetic fields because they reverberate across generations with an inherent
memory of the correct shape and form
.” 
-Lynne McTaggart, “The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the
Universe,” (46-7)

The question of form and process in nature is still a complete mystery,
no matter how many fancy explanations or Latin terms scientists create.  How do embryos develop from fertilized
eggs?  How does a tiny seed grow into a
huge tree?  Inside every apple seed there
is the potential to grow an entire apple tree with deep roots, winding
branches, colorful leaves, and hundreds of apples with thousands more seeds inside!  Where is this amazing blueprint in those tiny
seeds?  How does part of the seed become
a root, another part become a branch, another part become a leaf, and another
part become an apple?

Imagine a little acorn planted in the ground.  The form and shape of that little acorn,
hidden in the earth, is vastly different from the giant tree it will become,
with branches sticking out in every direction, leaves and bark, roots reaching
far into the earth.  We could say that
the acorn contains some kind of genetic program that tells it how to grow and
how to form.  But, where is this
program?  If we said this genetic program
was within the DNA, science and biologists such as Rupert Sheldrake, tell us we
would be wrong.  DNA codes for proteins
and the micro components which make up proteins.  Coding the structure of single, solitary
parts that make up organisms, such as proteins, is very different than coding
the shape and structure of an entire organism
.” -Eric Pepin, “Handbook of
the Navigator” (77)
In 1921 an interesting phenomenon relevant to morphic fields was first observed
in Southampton, England.  In the morning when people came out to get
the milk from their doorsteps, they found the cardboard lids torn to shreds and
the cream disappeared from their bottles. 
It turns out blue tit birds in the area had learned to perch atop the
bottles, pull off the cardboard lids with their beaks and drink the cream.  Several months later this phenomenon began
occurring elsewhere in Britain about 50 miles away, then later about 100 miles
away, then again and again in many diverse locations throughout Europe:
Whenever the bluetit phenomenon turned up, it started spreading
locally, presumably by imitation. 
However, bluetits are very home-loving creatures, and they don’t
normally travel more than four or five miles. 
Therefore, the dissemination of the behavior over large distances could
only be accounted for in terms of an independent discovery of the habit … The
people who did the study came to the conclusion that it must have been
‘invented’ independently at least 50 times. 
Moreover, the rate of spread of the habit accelerated as time went on …
Here is an example of a pattern of behavior which was spread in a way which
seemed to speed up with time, and which might provide an example of morphic
resonance
.”  -Eric Pepin, “Handbook
of the Navigator” (79-80)
Decades later, further evidence for morphic resonance was provided by
Dutch blue tits.  Due to the German
occupation of Holland during World War II, their milk delivery ceased in 1939,
not to resume again until 1948 (9 years later). 
Since the average lifespan of a blue tit is only 2-3 years, it is safe
to assume that none of them alive in 1939 were still around in 1948, yet
mysteriously when milk delivery resumed, the phenomenon quickly sprang up again
in diverse locations spreading rapidly throughout the country.  This time, however, the behavior began right
away and independently popped up in various places at a higher rate of
frequency.  This lends credence to the
idea that the evolutionary spread of new behaviors are likely not genetic but
rather due to a kind of “collective memory” phenomenon like Sheldrake’s
morphogenic fields or Carl Jung’s collective unconscious.

Jung thought
of the collective unconscious as a collective memory, the collective memory of
humanity. He thought that people would be more tuned into members of their own
family and race and social and cultural group, but that nevertheless there
would be a background resonance from all humanity: a pooled or averaged
experience of basic things that all people experience (e.g., maternal behavior
and various social patterns and structures of experience and thought). It would
not be a memory from particular persons in the past so much as an average of
the basic forms of memory structures; these are the archetypes. Jung’s notion
of the collective unconscious makes extremely good sense in the context of the
general approach that I am putting forward. Morphic resonance theory would lead
to a radical reaffirmation of Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious
.”  –Rupert Sheldrake, “Morphic Resonance”
(11-12)

Biologist Lyall Watson in his book “Lifetide”
also offers evidence in support of Sheldrake’s theory with his discovery of
“the hundredth monkey effect.”  This
phenomenon was first observed during an experiment on a remote Japanese island
where scientists were leaving sweet potatoes on the beach to feed Macaque
monkeys.  These particular monkeys had
never eaten sweet potatoes before; they enjoyed them very much but didn’t like
eating the beach sand covering them. 
Soon one intelligent monkey started taking his potatoes to the shoreline
and scrubbing them underwater which both removed the sand and gave them a desirable
salty taste.  Shortly after this more and
more monkeys began to copy the potato washing habit until the entire island’s
monkey population was doing it.  Next,
strangely, whole communities of Macaques on many other unconnected islands not
part of the experiment, Macaques who already ate sweet potatoes as a staple
food, spontaneously began washing their potatoes in the sea as well!  There was no possible connection or
communication between the islands or various communities of Macaques, so how
and why did this behavior spread?

Consider the
hypothesis that if you train rats to learn a new trick in Santa
Barbara, then rats all over the world should be able to learn to do
the same trick more quickly, just because the rats in Santa Barbara have learned it. This new
pattern of learning will be, as it were, in the rat collective memory -in the
morphic fields of rats, to which other rats can tune in, just because they are
rats and just because they are in similar circumstances, by morphic resonance.
This may seem a bit improbable, but either this sort of thing happens or it
doesn’t. Among the vast number of papers in the archives of experiments on rat
psychology, there are a number of examples of experiments in which people have
actually monitored rates of learning over time and discovered mysterious
increases. In my book, A New Science of Life, I describe one such series of
experiments which extended over a 50-year period. Begun at Harvard and then
carried on in Scotland and Australia, the
experiment demonstrated that rats increased their rate of learning more than
tenfold. This was a huge effect – not some marginal statistically significant
result. This improved rate of learning in identical learning situations
occurred in these three separate locations and in all rats of the breed, not
just in rats descended from trained parents
.”  –Rupert Sheldrake, “Morphic Resonance” (6-7)

Monica
England of Nottingham
University’s Psychology
Department knew about Sheldrake’s theory of morphic resonance and devised an
interesting experiment to test for collective consciousness in humans.  She reasoned that if morphic resonance is
occurring, it should be easier to do today’s newspaper crossword puzzle
tomorrow than it would have been yesterday. 
London’s
Evening Standard newspaper provided their crossword in advance for her
experiment. First students all completed a control crossword to measure their
ability, then half were tested in Nottingham the day before and half the day
after the crossword was published in London.  Amazingly, the students who did the already
published crossword (the puzzle that had already been completed by thousands of
Evening Standard readers) improved their scores by an average of 25%  What can account for this huge jump in
scores?

In another similar study, two teams from Australia and Britain did an experiment with face
recognition.  They created a photo image
with over a hundred faces in it, big ones, small ones, faces within faces etc.
then asked people to point out as many faces as they could find within an
allotted time.  Because they were so well
hidden a control group of several hundred Australians could only see about six
to ten faces total.  Then back in England, the
other team of researchers showed a group of volunteers the picture on a
closed-cable BBC TV station with a narrator pointing out one-by-one every
single face.  A few minutes later the
Australian team repeated the experiment with several hundred more volunteers
ready and waiting.  Amazingly, this time
most people were able to find not just a few, but the majority of faces within
the allotted time limit!  What could
account for this other than some mechanism like Jung’s collective memory or
Sheldrake’s morphic resonance?  The
typical “DNA” explanation is insufficient.

As we will
see, this model does not work very well. The genetic program is assumed to be
identical with DNA, the genetic chemical. The genetic information is coded in
DNA and this
code forms the genetic program. But such a leap requires projecting onto DNA
properties that it does not actually possess. We know what DNA does: it codes
for proteins; it codes for the sequence of amino acids which form proteins. However, there
is a big difference between coding for the structure of a protein – a chemical
constituent of the organism – and programming the development of an entire organism.
It is the difference between making bricks and building a house out of the bricks.
You need the bricks to build the house. If you have defective bricks, the house
will be defective. But the plan of the house is not contained in the bricks, or
the wires, or the beams, or cement. Analogously, DNA only codes for the
materials from which the body is constructed: the enzymes, the structural
proteins, and so forth. There is no evidence that it also codes for the plan,
the form, the morphology of the body
.”  -Rupert
Sheldrake, “Morphic Resonance” (3-4)

More scientific
verification for Sheldrake’s theory came from Yale University
with Dr. Harold S. Burr’s studies of electromagnetic radiation fields.  He discovered that there are electrical
fields surrounding all organisms from molds, bacteria and plants to
salamanders, frogs and humans, and that within these fields there exists an
observable energetic blueprint of each organism’s future.  For instance plant seedlings have electrical
fields which resemble the eventual adult plant. 
Baby salamanders possess energy fields shaped like adult salamanders and
the energetic blueprint can even be seen in an unfertilized egg. 

Each species
has its own fields, and within each organism there are fields within fields.
Within each of us is the field of the whole body; fields for arms and legs and
fields for kidneys and livers; within are fields for the different tissues
inside these organs, and then fields for the cells, and fields for the
sub-cellular structures, and fields for the molecules, and so on. There is a
whole series of fields within fields. The essence of the hypothesis I am
proposing is that these fields, which are already accepted quite widely within
biology, have a kind of in-built memory derived from previous forms of a
similar kind. The liver field is shaped by the forms of previous livers and the
oak tree field by the forms and organization of previous oak trees. Through the
fields, by a process called morphic resonance, the influence of like upon like,
there is a connection among similar fields. That means that the field’s
structure has a cumulative memory, based on what has happened to the species in
the past.” 
–Rupert Sheldrake, “Morphic
Resonance” (5)

Elmer Lund at
the University of
Texas discovered that he
could control the regeneration of limbs in hydras using electrical fields.  By applying an electrical current strong
enough to override the hydras’ natural morphogenic field, he was able to cause
heads to form where tails should be and vice versa.  Similar experiments have been performed on
flatworms, salamanders and other organisms all of which have had their natural
“genetic” or “morphogenic” data re-programmed by electrical frequencies.  This provides yet more evidence that all
organisms must be involved in some type of energetic data transference that
determines things like form and process in nature.  It seems DNA holds the blueprint, but rather
than being set in stone, it is constantly being edited and re-worked by various
fields of influence both from within and outside our bodies.

Rather than a system of fortunate but ultimately random error, if
DNA uses frequencies of all variety as an information tool, this would suggest
instead a feedback system of perfect communication through waves which encode
and transfer information
.”  -Lynne
McTaggart, “The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe,” (51)

One fact
which led to the development of this theory is the remarkable ability organisms
have to repair damage. If you cut an oak tree into little pieces, each little
piece, properly treated, can grow into a new tree. So from a tiny fragment, you
can get a whole. Machines do not do that; they do not have this power of
remaining whole if you remove parts of them. Chop a computer up into small
pieces and all you get is a broken computer. It does not regenerate into lots
of little computers. But if you chop a flatworm into small pieces, each piece
can grow into a new flatworm. Another analogy is a magnet. If you chop a magnet
into small pieces, you do have lots of small magnets, each with a complete
magnetic field. This is a holistic property that fields have that mechanical
systems do not have unless they are associated with fields. Still another
example is the hologram, any part of which contains the whole. A hologram is
based on interference patterns within the electromagnetic field. Fields thus
have a holistic property which was very attractive to the biologists who
developed this concept of morphogenetic fields

The Conscious Vibratory Holomovement

In the
18th century a Frenchman named Jean Fourier discovered a
mathematical method of converting patterns into simple wave forms called the
Fourier transform, a process which later led to the discoveries of both
television and holography.  When a video
camera captures scenes on film it converts pictures into electromagnetic
frequencies which are then converted back again by your television set.  Scientists are now finding that this Fourier
transform process is how the brain works, as an electromagnetic frequency
decoder.  We have long known that through
our 120 billion miles of DNA/RNA our entire bodies are involved in a frequency decoding
process.  We know our ears are audio
frequency decoders, Nobel Prize winner Georg von Bekesy has proven that our
skin responds to frequencies, and thanks to neurophysiologists Russell and
Karen DeValois, we now know that brain cells in the visual cortex react and
activate based on frequency patterns.

University of California at Berkeley
Neurophysiologists Russell and Karen DeValois converted simple plaid and
checkerboard patterns into Fourier waves and discovered that the brain cells of
cats and monkeys responded not to the patterns themselves but to the interference
patterns of their component waves. 
Countless studies, elaborated on by the DeValois team in their book
Spatial Vision, show that numerous cells in the visual system are tuned into
certain frequencies.  Other studies have
showed that the human cerebral cortex may be tuned to specific frequencies

Pribram conjectured that these wave collisions must create the pictorial
images in our brain.  When we perceive
something, it’s not due to the activity of neurons themselves but to certain
patches of dendrites distributed around the brain, which, like a radio station,
are set to resonate only at certain frequencies.  It is like having a vast number of piano
strings all over your head, only some of which would vibrate as a particular
note is played
.”  -Lynne McTaggart,
“The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe,” (86-88)

Dr. Pribram has conjectured that wave-interference patterns are likely
not created or received by any particular brain cells, but in the spaces
between them.  Dendrites, the tiny nerve
endings of neurons where synapses are fired, communicate with other neurons by
sending and receiving electrical/chemical wave impulses.  It is plausible that this is where wave
frequencies are received and transformed into holographic images, because there
are constantly millions of wave-interference patterns criss-crossing here
anyway.

The fact that movement could somehow be represented formally in
terms of Fourier equations made Pribram realize that the brain’s conversations
with the body might also be occurring in the form of waves and patterns, rather
than as images.  The brain somehow had
the capacity to analyze movement, break it down into wave frequencies and
transmit this wave-pattern shorthand to the rest of the body.  This information, transmitted nonlocally, to
many parts at once, would explain how we can fairy easily manage complicated
global tasks involving multiple body parts, such as riding a bicycle or roller
skating.  It also accounts for how we can
easily imitate some task.  Pribram also
came across evidence that our other senses – smell, taste and hearing – operate
by analyzing frequencies.  In Pribram’s
own studies with cats, in which he recorded frequencies from the motor cortex
of cats while their right forepaw was being moved up and down, he discovered
that, like the visual cortex, individual cells in the cat’s motor cortex
responded to only a limited number of frequencies of movement, just as
individual strings in a piano respond to a limited range of frequencies
.”  -Lynne McTaggart, “The Field: The Quest for
the Secret Force of the Universe,” (87)

The color “red” in our explicate experience is really just an implicate
wave-interference pattern vibrating at a frequency of 400 THz.  The color “violet” in our experience is really
just a wave-interference pattern vibrating at a frequency of 790 THz.  Above the spectrum visible to humans are
ultra-violet rays, x-rays, and gamma rays. 
Below the spectrum visible to us are infra-red, microwaves, and radio
waves.  Our brains decode this small
sliver of electromagnetic frequencies and create the perceptions and sensations
we experience in our consciousness. 
Using the piano analogy, think of the color red as a low note and the
color violet as a high note, a rainbow is a major chord, and a lakeside sunset
is a concerto.

Our brain is not a storage medium but a receiving mechanism in
every sense, and memory is simply a distant cousin of ordinary perception.  The brain retrieves ‘old’ information the
same way it processes ‘new’ information – through holographic transformation of
wave interference patterns.  Lashley’s
rats with the fried brains were able to conjure up their run in its entirety
because the memory of it was never burned away in the first place.  Whatever reception mechanism was left in the
brain – and as Pribram had demonstrated, it was distributed all over the brain
– was tuning back into the memory through The Field.  Some scientists went as far as to suggest
that all of our higher cognitive processes result from an interaction with the
Zero Point Field.  This kind of constant
interaction might account for intuition or creativity – and how ideas come to
us in bursts of insight, sometimes in fragments but often as a miraculous
whole.  An intuitive leap might simply be
a sudden coalescence of coherence in The Field
.”  -Lynne McTaggart, “The Field: The Quest for
the Secret Force of the Universe,” (95)

If you
take a piece of regular film and cut it up, your image is destroyed
forever.  However, when you cut up a
piece of holographic film, the image is never destroyed – a smaller scale
version of the image always exists.  If
memories were stored locally, like regular film, and you cut out that part of
the brain, the memory would be lost.  But
in reality, like holographic film, when you cut out parts of the brain, a smaller
scale version of the memory always exists. 
So just as a piece of holographic film stores complete images as
interference patterns throughout its entirety, the human brain stores complete
memories as interference patterns throughout its entirety.  And just like a laser light focused on a
piece of holographic film creates a seemingly physical three-dimensional image,
the light of our consciousness focusing on quanta creates a seeming physical
three-dimensional world.

The holographic model offers revolutionary possibilities for a new
understanding of the relationships between the parts and the whole.  No longer confined to the limited logic of
traditional thought, the part ceases to be just a fragment of the whole but,
under certain circumstances, reflects and contains the whole.  As individual human beings we are not
isolated and insignificant Newtonian entities; rather, as integral fields of
the holomovement each of us is also a microcosm that reflects and contains the
macrocosm.  If this is true, then we each
hold the potential for having direct and immediate experiential access to
virtually every aspect of the universe, extending our capacities well beyond
the reach of our senses
.”  -Stanislav
Grof, “The Holotropic Mind” (10)


Another
markedly holographic processor present in our bodies and the universe is
DNA.  Watch any movie or TV series about
crime-scene investigation and notice that the identity of the culprit can be
determined from tiny traces of their DNA. 
A drop of blood, a fingernail, or a single strand of hair is enough to
positively identify the perpetrator.  The
reason for this is that DNA, like our brains, holographically mirrors each part
in the whole and the whole in each part. 
DNA
(like RNA) emits light-energy in the form of photons to such an extent that it
has been compared by some to an ‘ultra weak laser’. They generate coherent
light in the same way that our technological lasers do – the lasers that create
holograms. The [universe] broadcasts its signals in wave, or interference,
patterns and it may be that the laser light emitted by the DNA/RNA is part of
the process of turning them into holographic representations of that waveform …One
mystery of quantum physics is how particles can either express themselves as a
‘wave’ form (nonphysical) or as a particle (apparently ‘physical’) and the
waveforms only become particles when they are being observed – when we are looking at them. What is actually happening is that the DNA/RNA/brain is
causing the waveform or interference pattern to project an illusory hologram.
The act of ‘observation’ – focus – projects the holograms from the waveforms
and when this happens the quantum physicists see the waveform ‘becoming’ a
particle. Both the waveform and the particle exist at the same time and they
don’t move from one state to another. When a laser is shone onto a photographic
interference pattern to manifest a hologram, one does not replace the other.
Both waveform and hologram coexist. It is just that the observer sees the
hologram as the prime reality. The waveform is possibility; the particle is
‘physical’ experience
.” –David Icke, “Infinite Love is the Only Truth,
Everything Else is Illusion” (62-3)


Ever-increasing
evidence overwhelmingly suggests that our brains, bodies, DNA, and the entire universe are non-local holographic transducers incessantly interacting with a
deeper quantum reality.  This
“holomovement” is an “undivided wholeness in flowing motion” where all
perceived separation is ultimately illusory like whirlpools in a river.  Even the seeming separation of forms and consciousness
into “relatively independent subtotalities” only exists at the explicate
level.  As David Bohm put it simply, “deep
down, the consciousness of mankind is one
.”

Scientists
can’t understand why subatomic particles can communicate instantly with each
other over staggering distances because they are thinking in terms of space.
But there is no space involved. It is like the droplet of water and the
ocean.  There are no particles, plural,
except in the way we perceive them in the illusion. All particles are the same
One. They don’t have to communicate between each other because there is no
‘each other’ and they don’t move from one place to another because there is no
space and so there can be no places. Appropriately the word ‘Utopia’ means ‘no
place’ – beyond the illusion of time and space. The superhologram appears to
occupy space and we talk of the vastness of space. But it’s a hologram and so
that cannot be. If there is no space how come we seem to travel through it?
Once again because that is the illusion our DNA/RNA decodes for us and we
travel through space only as electrical signals interpreted by the brain
.”
–David Icke, “Infinite Love is the Only Truth, Everything Else is Illusion”
(93)

Every particle
in the universe is a carrier of knowledge. 
In other words, in some form or another, every particle can be said to
be conscious. As humatons, we tend to assume that only we are conscious,
because only we seem to be self-conscious … 
Not only that, we have attributed our consciousness to a single organ
only, the brain (And it is possible we only use ten percent of that organ with
which to deduce all of this).  It would
seem to be equally possible, however – and a lot more logical – to assume that
the brain is merely a receiver of information – a tuning dial that picks up
data and translates it into sense impressions and rational thought, images, and
so forth – and that knowledge as such, memory, is stored in every single atom
of our bodies. For organic beings, the ‘filing system’ provided for every
living molecule is DNA. As such, if we were to tune in with the remaining
ninety percent of our brains, we would be capable of receiving vastly greater
amounts of data than we are presently accustomed to … Just as
knowledge/memory/experience is passed through generations of a given species,
presumably via DNA, in order for the species to evolve as a whole, so
information would appear to be shared freely amongst all the billions upon
billions of particles that make up the physical universe. This is cooperation
on a grand scale. Every particle is conscious. Every particle is potentially
conscious of what every other particle is conscious of. And all particles are
connected together into a single tapestry of consciousness/information/energy
which is, it therefore follows, conscious of what every particle is conscious
of, and conscious of itself as a unified whole; a living, conscious organism.
Ergo, the universe is a superconscious being within which all beings exist and
have life and consciousness. It is God, and every one of its parts and
components – as in a hologram in which each fragment contains the whole – is
also God, the totality, in and of itself

Our Holographic Brains

Independently of David Bohm’s research, Stanford neuroscientist Karl Pribram proposed a holographic
model for explaining the structure and function of the human brain.   His work strongly suggests that the brain
stores information, not locally in so-called “engrams,” but holographically
throughout its entirety.
Interestingly,
while Pribram and David Bohm began their work independently, both were using
the same explanation to describe the results of their experiments.  They were each applying the holographic model
to make sense of life.  Bohm, as a
quantum physicist, was looking at the universe as a hologram.  Pribram, as a neuroscientist, was studying
the brain as a holographic processor … When the two theories are combined, what
results is nothing less than a paradigm-shattering possibility
.”  -Gregg Braden, “The Divine Matrix” (113)
Individual memories were long thought to exist locally in specific
areas of the brain; however, thanks to the work of Dr. Karl Pribram, Dr. Karl
Lashley, Dr. Paul Pietsch and others, we now know this is not the case.  Dr. Karl Lashley and other scientists have
trained rats to navigate mazes, then removed their brains piece by piece, attempting
to find where “engrams” (individual memories) exist.  Strangely, however, in the experiments the
rats always remember the training no matter which piece or how much of the
brain is removed.
Even
after removing as much as 90 percent of a rat’s visual cortex (the part of the
brain that receives and interprets what the eye sees), he found it could still
perform tasks requiring complex visual skills. 
Similarly, research conducted by Pribram revealed that as much as 98
percent of a cat’s optic nerves can be severed without seriously impairing its
ability to perform complex visual tasks. 
Such a situation was tantamount to believing that a movie audience could
still enjoy a motion picture after 90 percent of the movie screen was missing,
and his experiments presented once again a serious challenge to the standard
understanding of how vision works
.” 
-Michael
Talbot, “The Holographic Universe”
(18-9)
The
orthodox explanation of vision is that the eye sees by taking a photographic
image and reproducing it onto the cortical surface of the brain where we
interpret it like an internal movie screen. 
Dr. Lashley’s experiments showed, however, that even when 90-98% of that
internal projector screen is missing, the brain still receives and registers
the whole movie!
Experiments
demonstrated that animals retained memories and continued their lives even
though the parts of their brains that were believed to hold these functions
were removed.  In other words, it
appeared that there wasn’t a direct correspondence between the memories and a
physical place in the brain.  It was
obvious that the mechanical view of brains and memory wasn’t the answer –
something else strange and wonderful must be happening
.”  -Gregg Braden, “The Divine Matrix” (112)
These and
other experiments have shown that Dr. Lashley’s engram theory of individual
memories existing in certain areas of the brain is provably incorrect.  Memories and images are distributed all
throughout the brain, just like a picture is stored all throughout a piece of
holographic film.
Paul
Pietsch began as an ardent disbeliever in Pribram’s theory.  He was especially skeptical of Pribram’s
claim that memories do not possess any specific location in the brain.  To prove Pribram wrong, Pietsch devised a
series of experiments … Pietsch reasoned that if a salamander’s feeding
behavior is not  confined to any specific
location in the brain, then it should not matter how its brain is positioned in
its head.  If it did matter, Pribram’s
theory would be disproven.  He then
flip-flopped the left and right hemispheres of a salamander’s brain, but to his
dismay, as soon as it recovered, the salamander quickly resumed normal
feeding.  He took another salamander and
turned its brain upside down.  When it
recovered, it too fed normally.  Growing
increasingly frustrated, he decided to resort to more drastic measures.  In a series of over 700 operations he sliced,
flipped, shuffled, subtracted, and even minced the brains of his hapless
subjects, but always when he replaced what was left of their brains, their
behavior returned to normal.  These
findings and others turned Pietsch into a believer
.” 
-Michael Talbot, “The Holographic Universe” (26)
Salamanders were good subjects for this experiment because they simply
go comatose when their brains are removed and then quickly regain normal
functioning once it’s replaced.  In Dr.
Pietsch’s 700 trials he subtracted, sliced, diced, mashed, and even
sausage-ground salamander brains but no matter what, after putting back
whatever was left of their brains, they always regained normal
functioning. 
Mainstream science has been
unable to locate the area of the brain that contains all the memory because
what we call memory exists throughout the brain and body. This must be the case
because it’s a hologram.  People with
tumours, who have large parts of their brains removed, do not lose specific
memories. They might not remember, in general, quite as well because they have
moved to a smaller level of the holographic memory where there is less clarity
than in the whole. But they don’t lose one memory completely and retain another
in crystal clarity as they would if memory was located in one area. The body
hologram stores information from all the senses and so when we smell something
it can trigger a memory just as powerfully as sight or hearing. Even this is
another level of the illusion because if the brain is a hologram it must also
be illusory. It is, like everything in this reality, the ‘physical’ expression
of a frequency field or resonance. Incidentally, the holographic nature of the
body means the whole brain/body is involved in decoding the five senses and not
just the ‘visual cortex’ and other areas of the brain associated with these
specific duties
.” –David Icke, “Infinite Love is the Only Truth, Everything
Else is Illusion” (51)
So you can obliterate a salamander’s brain in any number of ways, and
it will still have a normal life as long as you put a tiny piece of brain back
in its head.  You can teach a rat to run
a maze, then remove any part of its brain, and it will still remember the run.  You can remove 90% of a rat’s visual cortex
and it will still perform complex visual tasks. You can sever 98% of a cat’s
optic nerves and it will still see normally. 
These, along with many other experiments, strongly suggest that the
brain processes images and stores information holographically (all parts in the
whole and the whole in all parts) because the brain, like a hologram, no matter
how small the piece, can still reconstruct the whole.
Our brains mathematically
construct objective reality by interpreting frequencies that are ultimately
projections from another dimension, a deeper order of existence that is beyond
both space and time: The brain is a hologram enfolded in a holographic universe
… What is ‘out there’ is a vast ocean of waves and frequencies, and reality
looks concrete to us only because our brains are able to take this holographic
blur and convert it into the sticks and stones and other familiar objects that
make up our world.
 
-Michael Talbot,
“The Holographic Universe”
(54)
In
Michael Talbot’s “The Holographic Universe,” he suggests our experience of the
smoothness of fine china or the feel of beach sand beneath our feet is like an
elaborate version of the so-called “phantom limb syndrome” – when amputees can
still “feel” their missing limb(s) long after having been removed.  In other words, there are two realities, like
Bohm’s implicate and explicate orders.  In
the implicate order, a “china cup” is just an energetic interference pattern
vibrating at a certain frequency, but in the explicate order, after being
filtered through the lens of our brains, eyes, and nervous systems, those
interference patterns manifest to us as the look and feel of fine china.  When asked, “so which is real and which is
an illusion?
” Dr. Pribram replied that, “both are real to me, or if you
want to say, neither of them are real
.”
Although the metaphor of the holograph was important to Pribram,
the real significance of his discovery was not holography per se, which
conjures up a mental image of the three-dimensional ghostly projection, or a
universe which is only our projection of it. 
It was the unique ability of quantum waves to store vast quantities of
information in a totality and in three dimensions, and for our brains to be
able to read this information and from this to create the world.  Here was finally a mechanical device that
seemed to replicate the way that the brain actually worked:  how images were formed, how they were stored
and how they could be recalled or associated with something else.  Most important, it gave a clue to the biggest
mystery of all for Pribram:  how you
could have localized tasks in the brain but process or store them throughout
the larger whole.  In a sense, holography
is just convenient shorthand for wave interference – the language of The Field
.”  -Lynne McTaggart, “The Field: The Quest for
the Secret Force of the Universe,” (84)
So
here we are – all part of this great hologram called Creation, which is
everybody else’s Self … It’s all a cosmic play, and there is nothing but you!
