Vlatko Vedral – Decoding Reality: The Universe as Quantum Information

May 13, 2014

Vlatko Vedral on Decoding Reality – The Universe as Quantum Information. What is the nature of reality? Why is there something rather than nothing? These are the deepest questions that human beings have asked, that thinkers East and West have pondered over millennia. For a physicist, all the world is information. The Universe and its workings are the ebb and flow of information. We are all transient patterns of information, passing on the blueprints for our basic forms to future generations using a digital code called DNA.

Decoding Reality asks some of the deepest questions about the Universe and considers the implications of interpreting it in terms of information. It explains the nature of information, the idea of entropy, and the roots of this thinking in thermodynamics. It describes the bizarre effects of quantum behaviour such as ‘entanglement’, which Einstein called ‘spooky action at a distance’ and explores cutting edge work on harnessing quantum effects in hyperfast quantum computers, and how recent evidence suggests that the weirdness of the quantum world, once thought limited to the tiniest scales, may reach up into our reality.

The book concludes by considering the answer to the ultimate question: where did all of the information in the Universe come from? The answers considered are exhilarating and challenge our concept of the nature of matter, of time, of free will, and of reality itself.

Chris H. Hardy – DNA of the Gods

April 29, 2014

Chris Hardy discusses her book DNA of the Gods -The Anunnaki Creation of Eve and the Alien Battle for Humanity. The evidence keeps accumulating from tens of thousands of Sumerian and Middle-Eastern clay tablets already unearthed that we are the descendants of the gods of Sumer, and the numerous striking similarities between the Bible scriptures and these ancient texts reveal that the deity in the Garden of Eden (Edin) was the Sumerian Prince Enlil, the Commander of Earth. It is now clear that the events in Edin (aka Sumer) were no less than a leap in the bio-engineering of the present day human race from the DNA of the aliens or Anunnaki “who came down to Earth”.

Gary Lachman – Caretakers of the Cosmos

April 5, 2014

Gary Lachman discusses his book The Caretakers of the Cosmos: Living Responsibly in an Unfinished World, which brings together many strands of esoteric, spiritual and philosophical thought to form a counter-argument to the nihilism that permeates the twenty-first century. Why are we here? Where do we come from? Where are we going? Human beings have asked themselves these questions for millennia. Modern science usually argues that humanity is the chance product of a purposeless universe. All too often, however, its facts are found to be merely theories hanging on the next great new discovery which will give us all the answers, but which somehow always seems to be just around the next corner.

Walter Cruttenden – Lost Star of Myth and Time

February 27, 2014

Walter Cruttenden discusses some of the ideas in his 2005 book Lost Star of Myth and Time. The myth and folklore of ancestral peoples around the world hints at a vast cycle of time, with alternating Dark and Golden Ages. Plato called it the Great Year. Long believed to be a fairy tale, there is now new astronomical evidence to show it has a basis in fact. Moreover, because it is caused by the acceleration of our Sun around another star, we learn that the Earth should soon be carried into a region of space that will have a beneficial effect on our atmosphere, nudging mankind into a higher state of consciousness.

Tony Wright – Return to the Brain of Eden: Part Two

February 21, 2014

Tony Wright discusses his forthcoming book Return to the Brain of Eden: Restoring the Connection Between Neurochemistry and Consciousness. Over a period of a million years the human brain expanded at an increasingly rapid rate, but suddenly, around 200,000 years ago, this expansion stopped. Modern science has overlooked this in order to maintain the illusion that humans are at the pinnacle of evolution. However, it is extremely significant that the abrupt end to brain expansion explains not only recently uncovered anomalies within the human brain, but also the universal mythic traditions of a lost earthly paradise and of humanity’s degeneration from our original state of perpetual wonder and joy.

Anthony Peake – The Infinite Mindfield

October 18, 2013

Anthony Peake discusses his book The Infinite Mindfield: The Quest to Find the Gateway to Higher Consciousness. The Infinite Mindfield uses as its starting point the widespread historical belief that the pineal gland – the ‘third eye’ – is a profoundly important organ. It links this to the various myths, originating in ancient Sumer, that ‘dragons’ or ‘serpents’ have guided humanity and presents evidence that these beings are symbolic of DNA. It is now known that DNA gives off a form of light known as bioluminescence. This information-rich ‘inner light’ needs an organ of sight to process it – that organ is the pineal gland. It is through this small organ that we ‘perceive’ the inner worlds of lucid dreaming, out-of-body experiences, hypnagogic imagery, near-death experiences, astral travel and the kundalini experience.

Kingsley Dennis – Dawn of the Akashic Age

September 27, 2013

Author, researcher and futurist Kingsley Dennis discusses his recent book Dawn of the Akashic Age. The world is changing. The transition from the mechanistic worldview to one that recognizes the interconnectedness of all life is upon us. It is the dawning of the Akashic Age. The Akashic field that connects the universe is now recognized by cutting-edge science. What we know about communication, energy, and consciousness is rapidly evolving in tandem with the new quantum worldview. Many adults are consciously evolving to meet the transitional challenges at hand, while today’s youth have arrived already hard-wired with the new consciousness. Rising from the ashes of the old systems, this Phoenix generation of radical change agents is seeding our evolution and spiritual transformation, a process that will continue over the next few decades.

David Jay Brown – The New Science of Psychedelics

September 1, 2013

David Jay Brown discusses his latest book The New Science of Psychedelics – At the Nexus of Culture, Consciousness, and Spirituality. For as long as humanity has existed, we have used psychedelics to raise our levels of consciousness and seek healing, first in the form of visionary plants such as cannabis, and now with the addition of manmade psychedelics such as LSD and MDMA. These substances have inspired spiritual awakenings, artistic and literary works, technological and scientific innovation, and even political revolutions. But what does the future hold for humanity and can psychedelics help take us there?
