“ If you and I are having a single thought of violence or hatred against anyone in the world at this moment, we are contributing to the wounding of the world.” Dr. Deepak Chopra
~ Since my bicycle trek across America, I’ve seen many disturbing changes in the country and in the world, it’s difficult for myself and so many others to be witness to the juggernaut of powerful financial forces which have infiltrated our nation’s government and which appear to be intent upon taking control of the world’s resources by way of U.S. military might and intelligence apparatus. How does one act effectively in opposition to such forces? What can one do to oppose these powers? How can one genuinely change this paradigm?
~ My soul searching during a trek across America along with fellow peace activist Rena Patty revealed, for myself, quantum physics as a pivotal component in changing the world paradigm. Because quantum physics seems to be saying to us, “You can change anything! It’s all born of consciousness ~ change your consciousness and the world too will change.”
~ The famed and beloved cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a few caring people can change the world, for indeed that’s all that ever has.”
~ Quantum physics actually supports Mead’s thesis; there appears to be an exponential component to group consciousness, an aspect which, when activated by compassion, seems to take off like wildfire and spread rapidly.*1 This is what we need here. We need a few good people to care, and to care passionately, about what is happening to the human race. The thing is there are far more than a few, there are millions of people who care, who care very much. So perhaps all that’s missing is unity. Perhaps we need to cross all boundaries of nation, of religion, of culture, of walk in life and unite as peacemakers determined to change this paradigm.
~ We need a few miracles here and quantum science seems to say that we can have them, it seems to say that miracles are simply another aspect of the world we are manifesting. Maybe we need a “quantum leap” in consciousness. That’s what this show ~ Quantum Matrix Radio ~ is all about, and I’m very proud to be able to introduce this material and a stellar line of guests along with my co-host defense attorney, ex whistle blowing cop, and U.S. Army veteran David Meiswinkle. David and I don’t always agree and this is actually where some of the magic comes in because we intend to have the conversations you can’t have, the conversations where folks get so frustrated they walk out! We intend to cover all the bases, explore all the dynamics of a post 9/11 world and to do so with the interwoven thread of awareness that quantum physics tells us we can create a new paradigm! We’ll explore the work of great minds in the field of quantum physics or great souls in the fields of inspirational work which is somehow related to the wellspring of wisdom which quantum physics has tapped, as well as dive into the depths of the grave challenges we face in our country and in our world, there are no holds barred ~ and yet ~ we have tremendous hope, a viable hope offered by the world of science.
~ We seek our own individual change as well ~ change which can be applied by ourselves and others in our collective efforts to bring about a global paradigm transformation, or as Buckminster Fuller envisioned, to “… make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”
~ In a sense we hope this show serves as toolbox from which we, together, can strive to bring about the needed changes for a world in transition. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Perhaps our greatest power, in changing the world paradigm, lay in concentrating on our internal soul power to manifest a new paradigm.
~ To put it another way, quantum physicist Dr. Fred Alan Wolf *1a once said, “I don’t see the soul and consciousness as an epiphenomenon, or product, of matter. It’s just the other way around. I see matter as an epiphenomenon of soul and consciousness.” This may be a pivotal component in changing the world paradigm….the recognition that life, events, and the material world itself springs forths from our consciousness rather than consciousness being a by-product of an already existing reality. In other words ~ we are each responsible for our own thoughts ~ and these thoughts, this consciousness DOES affect the manifest world!
~ In quantum physics the soul might be understood as an indestructible energy field of consciousness, which we are, and which is inseparable from the energy field(s) of consciousness which everyone else is as well. These energy fields, which manifest the body and our collective three dimensional environments (not the other way around) are also connected to the infinite, omniscient, omnipresent energy Source Field from which we spring. In other words, as given by the ancients and the great ones, all the answers are right within us. *1b
~ Here’s a scientific example of the principle: Quantum Physics and The Observer
~ “Before you read any further, stop and close your eyes for a moment. Now consider the following question: for the moment your eyes were closed, did the world still exist, even though you weren't conscious of it? How do you know? If this sounds like the kind of unanswerable brain teaser your Philosophy 101 professor used to employ to stretch your philosophical imagination, you might be surprised to discover that there are actually physicists at reputable universities who believe they have answered this question—and their answer, believe it or not, is no. Now consider something even more intriguing. Imagine for a moment the entire history of the universe. According to all the data scientists have been able to gather, it exploded into existence some fifteen billion years ago, setting the stage for a cosmic dance of energy and light that continues to this day. Now imagine the history of planet Earth. Anamorphous cloud of dust emerging out of that primordial fireball, it slowly coalesced into a solid orb, found its way into gravitational orbit around the sun, and through a complex interaction of light and gases over billions of years, generated an atmosphere and a biosphere capable of not only giving birth to, but sustaining and proliferating, life. Now imagine that none of the above ever happened. Consider instead the possibility that the entire story only existed as an abstract potential—a cosmic dream among countless other cosmic dreams—until, in that dream, life somehow evolved to the point that a conscious, sentient being came into existence. At that moment, solely because of the conscious observation of that individual, the entire universe, including all of the history leading up to that point, suddenly came into being. Until that moment, nothing had actually ever happened. In that moment, fifteen billion years happened. If this sounds like nothing more than a complicated backdrop for a science fiction story or a secular version of one of the world's great creation myths, hold on to your hat. According to physicist Amit Goswami, the above description is a scientifically viable explanation of how the universe came into being. Goswami is convinced, along with a number of others who subscribe to the same view, that the universe, in order to exist, requires a conscious sentient being to be aware of it. Without an observer, he claims, it only exists as a possibility .
~ And as they say in the world of science, Goswami has done his math. Marshalling evidence from recent research in cognitive psychology, biology, parapsychology and quantum physics, and leaning heavily on the ancient mystical traditions of the world, Goswami is building a case for a new paradigm that he calls "monistic idealism," the view that consciousness, not matter, is the foundation of everything that is. A professor of physics at the University of Oregon and a member of its Institute of Theoretical Science, Dr. Goswami is part of a growing body of renegade scientists who in recent years have ventured into the domain of the spiritual…” *1c Coming to understand the creative nature of human consciousness and its potential power to transform any event, large or small, to its best possible outcome, to infinite outcomes, depending only upon our ability to envision and act is the responsibility of modern human kind. As Buckminster Fuller *2a put it, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
~ Fractal mathematics indicates that even subtle realties such as thought and personality can be studied as fractals. In fact it now appears that everything is fractal in nature, all interconnected and interwoven. This relatively new awareness implies that even our attitudes may have a measurable effect on the outcome of events. *2b Yet we can each make a decision to live as such that we draw strength and guidance from our highest sense of being within. This doesn’t require religion, while at the same time it embraces religion, it’s all up to the individual ~ the key point is mind, or as Einstein put it, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
~ In higher consciousness, there is no fear, anger, self pity, or resentment toward all the woes in the world, there is instead compassion. From our inner tapping of this compassion, by whatever means is dear to us, each to his own religion or philosophy, techniques or inspirations, we build within ourselves a state of mind which can answer world issues from a place of inner poise rather than emotional reaction. This is what Gandhi did, what King did, it is a way that works, a way now being supported by science. 3b Gandhi also addressed the emotions we naturally feel toward human rights violations and injustice, he recommended an “Anger Journal” for working through the emotions which injustice draw forth. He instructed that one pour everything freely into that journal and then, having spent the emotions, to then go back and look at the challenge and write further yet this time with the same degree of passion going toward the solution. He directed that one pour oneself actively into the solution with the same passion one would otherwise spend in being angry about the condition. Of Gandhi, who wrote very openly about his own struggles with anger and ultimately became a very inwardly poised and great soul, Einstein said in memoriam, “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this walked upon the earth.”3c His way of life is an example to follow, rather than a life to admire.
~ Dr. Candace B. Pert *4a said, “Emotions are the nexus between mind and matter, going back and forth between the two and influencing both.” Most of us have, upon close inspection, characteristics and habits of behavior and emotion which do not serve us well. There is a science to this as well, the chemical origins of our varied emotional states are in our neuropeptide production, which relates to every emotion and can carry an addictive quality. Finding our center of inner peace is a way to rise above the rush of chemical experiences that the manifest world generates in us.
~ We become peacemakers during our journey toward becoming peaceful. “The impact of our actions, individually and collectively, is inconceivably vast. We can all appreciate, to some extent, the environmental impact of polluting behavior, but based on what we now know about the universe, the true impact of our actions is far broader. For example, chaos theory has established that even our most minute actions can have incalculably large effects. This places a great burden of responsibility on everyone. Exercising common sense consideration and care towards our environment is a good start. But if we really want to protect our planet against the negative effects of human behavior, we must bring our thinking and action into spontaneous accord with Natural Law. We must align our behavior with the universal intelligence that governs the universe and sustains millions of species on Earth. Fortunately, such spontaneously life-nourishing behavior is natural; the human brain physiology is hard-wired to experience Enlightenment--higher states of consciousness in which we directly experience, and become attuned to, cosmic intelligence, or the Unified Field in the terminology of modern physics. The development of our total brain potential, and the resulting expansion of human comprehension to be universal, should be the goal of education today.” John Hagelin PhD. *4b
~ William James *5a once said, “The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitude of mind.” While many years later Dr. Hageline *5b observes, “Most people don’t know how deeply their own consciousness is connected to the collective fate of the planet—or how they can use a powerful, scientifically tested technology of consciousness to help create world peace on earth virtually overnight.”
~ This is a message which needs sharing! This is message to shout from the rooftops! Science is revealing to us in powerful ways that we can utterly transform the world paradigm from one of violence and oppression to one of peace and harmony. We who are experiencing a growing awareness of these scientific truths are responsible to share them with others. *5c Transformation requires change of heart and mind, as well as firm action to back it up. This is common sense. The world is in dire need, as is our country here in the U.S., there is much to be done, and it is truly incumbent upon those who recognize the need to do the work, both in thought and in action.
~ To also regularly go within, using varied techniques such as meditation; accessing a Greater Being to which we are connected, recognizing that our limited human reasoning is bound by a three dimensional focus, this too is helpful ~ as a matter of fact, in today’s world ~ it’s a science. "In an infinite fractal of rotation, how do you define the center? Every point is the center. You are the center of the universe observing the universe from your very own center. Wherever you pick a point of observation in the fractal, that point becomes the center from which you're observing the universe. That point becomes stillness. Why stillness? Because in that point now, all the spins of the universe cancel out.… You need stillness to have a frame of reference for rotation… And that's how singularity occurs. Singularity is the point at the center of your experience of the universe, that is the point of stillness from which you're observing the universe." Nassim Haramein PhD. *7a
~ “The point of power is in the present, there is no other rule.” Seth *7b
~ Truly, science is revealing that in a place of inner peace we are in a place of great power, and from this state of connectedness to our Source, we then go forth and do our work in the world. This, it appears, is the duty, to put it one way, of those who wish to be the pilgrims for a new age, ushering in an Age of Peace.
~ Causes we may wish to join in our effort toward world change are entirely personal, and we may choose to simply go our own way, one day at a time. It’s obviously a matter of choice, however, connecting with others in a compassionate and progressive way is highly beneficial, and with our show we hope to offer various means by which folks can get involved. We encourage activism, david and I have both been activists for years, yet we have come to recognize the value of attitude in activism or as Dr. Wayne Dyer *8 puts it, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” In other words we can see the world condition as dark, or as full of opportunity for positive change ~ and only the latter can reap positive results, so which do we choose?
~ “Humankind has not woven the web of life, we are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves, all things are bound together, all things connect.” Chief Seattle *9a
~ The quantum Law of Entanglement reveals that we truly are connected. *9b Among a multitude of other things, this can also mean cooperatively working together makes sense. There is an exponential growth component which takes place when we harmoniously work together toward a goal. It is a powerful tool for world change. *9c or as James Allen put it, “You are today where your thoughts have brought you, you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.” *10
We hope you’ll join us on this exciting journal of exploring the post 9/11 world through the eyes of these modern “spiritual sciences” if you will. I can assure you this adventure will be both exciting and productive because the implications of quantum physics are truly profound and mind boggling ~ there is tremendous hope for mankind during the world in transition.
Many of today’s modern practices toward higher consciousness have a foundation in our world religions. Quantum physics seems to have the ability to unite, to transcend, to harmonize and to lead us forward to a better world; each of us from our own window, and in our own way.*11

It is the underlying principle of religion as well as of all serious endeavor in art and science. He who never had this experience seems to me, if not dead, then at least blind. To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is a something that our minds cannot grasp, whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly: this is religiousness.
