Getting from Here to There, or, Brother Can you Spare a Paradigm?

I was asked to write something for a magazine related to what I’ll be talking about at the upcoming Pythagoras Conference (see below):

Getting from Here to There, or, Brother Can you Spare a Paradigm?

You wouldn’t find any disagreement today about the trouble we are in. Whether you are a liberal or a conservative, whether you are from the U.S. or from elsewhere, the crisis is worldwide.

Beyond cheerleads for us to be all that we can be, where eventually enough people will be evolved enough so that 100 monkeys will shift our worldview from one based on separation to one based on oneness, we don’t talk about our fundamental thought process that gave rise to much of what challenges us. Is a waiting game the only option? Seeing as there is no sign we are near the tipping point, what else could we do?

This is what I’m focusing on now. And I think I have a key.

We need public conversation about the discrepancy between the quantum perspective that science has progressed to and our worldview that’s still based on Newtonian physics. Newton’s is a dualistic world of opposing parts and linear progression, where we are encompassed by space and existing in time. But, in the quantum reality, which goes beyond space and time, everything is entangled. We are interconnected and interdependent. We are one.

So, how about dealing with this very publicly? In fact, it’s bizarre that we aren’t talking about what supports the way things are. Where greed prevails and war is our method of mediation, we don’t have the platform for things like global warming to be addressed. Some new agreement, worldwide, has to take us over. Slogans would be, “More for you is more for me,” and, “Whoever does the most good wins.” An ad campaign could help. But, until we start talking, educating humanity to what is so, we won’t come up with anything proactive to do.

My advocacy for conversation has evolved from my work with the crop circle phenomenon and the stimulus it could provide to open our minds to a bigger reality. We don’t operate collectively, as humanity, but, if there were proof that there is off-planet intelligence, we’d all be on the same side – a united humanity in relation to “the other.”

I have a lot to say about the circles. I’ve been responsible for the two documentaries about them that were made with Hollywood production standards. The first, in 2002, for which I was the Executive Producer, was CROP CIRCLES: Quest for Truth. It’s a history of the circles. I went on to produce and direct What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery, a more personal film to showcase the most interesting and knowledgeable people in the crop circle community. Both movies have won awards, and The New York Times, which hadn’t mentioned crop circles for decades, gave What On Earth? a very good review!

The media has done a poor job of dealing with the circles. Programs made by cable stations in the U.S. have been short on accuracy and long on cynicism. But, there’s more going on than perpetrations by people with boards and ropes. The god of science has pronounced the circles to be genuine mysteries, with no way to account for changes to the biology of the plants and the chemistry of the soil. Hoaxes aside, whatever or whoever is delivering these artworks, it’s not us.

I want to direct you to two things online. One is a 48-minute interview with Stephan Schwartz, a consciousness researcher with a scientific and academic background, who did landmark work in establishing some of the protocols for remote viewing. I hosted a webinar series this summer for Evolver Intensives, called Doorways to Another Reality, and Stephan, as my first guest, tuned us into the quantum perspective. My second guest, Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the moon and founder of IONS, has written Needed, A New Perspective, an excellent paper that speaks to that subject. And here’s Vital Mission! Will you join me?my blog post about all this.

To summarize, we need a new ideational framework in which humanity pulls together, superseding our current value system in which whoever has the most toys wins. Science has given us the underpinning for re-creating our story. A new science-based vision won’t take hold, though, unless people know it exists. And, when they do, there will be a natural swing to treating each other differently. So, the bottom line right here, right now, is to get conversation happening — educating us on TV, in print, and on the net; spreading to conferences, to classrooms, and to homes. Getting a new vision, a new story, a new paradigm, a new worldview should be priority number one. Please join me in addressing that. As I share my thinking, all thoughts that contribute to mine are welcome.

Vital Mission! Will you join me?

After the first two webinars of DOORWAYS TO ANOTHER REALITY: Peering into the Inner and Outer Mysteries, I am getting more than I bargained for. I am not just bringing some of my favorite people to an audience, but I am being impacted myself with some coherent sense about the cusp we are on between worldviews, and of where we might put our attention to best help the “conscious evolution” we so need.

Achieving new views of reality and, by implication, a sustainable modern civilization requires enlightened efforts to establish a fundamental shift in common perceptions leading to changes in thinking, values, behavior and actions based on the concepts of inter-connectedness, cooperation, and interdependence in all human endeavors  –Edgar Mitchell

Stephan Schwartz and Edgar Mitchell have been inspirational for me. In steeping myself in their material, I’ve been getting clarity about the case we can make for what needs to occur. Just as bringing crop circles to the attention of the world was a mission for me, I feel a sense of mission about popularizing the picture of the next stage of evolution.

First, people have to get fired up to the possibility that we can get to the next stage of evolution. If I were the boss of humanity I’d tell you it’s a requirement to watch this 48-minute “Transformational Dialogue” with Stephan. From this video:

I am interested in how individual consciousness links together and creates mass phenomena and social change. The part that I’m particularly interested in is called non-local consciousness. It is that aspect of us which is not limited by space and time. It is the part of us that has the near death experience…that we open to in meditation…that we contact when we send healing intention to another…that has moments of genius or that has religious or spiritual epiphanies…or has a déjà vu experience or a premonition about something.”

“What this research is all telling us collectively is that all life is interconnected and interdependent. So that when we think about the choices we make we need to recognize that our choice is a vote for all life. The choices that we make are either life-affirming or life-denying!”

Edgar Mitchell crossed over the space-time divide on his way back from the moon. My second commandment as the god of understanding would be for you to read this piece that he wrote: Needed: A New Perspective. From the piece:

“Since the 17th century science has been based on the belief that all phenomena are the results of blind but predictable interactions of matter. This orientation has led to a reductionist view of reality and a materialistic focus – one of consumption, competition, conflict and domination. However, by the end of the 20th century, new scientific evidence has emerged from the field of quantum mechanics and the study of so-called supernatural phenomena that render the reductionist view of reality not only untenable but incorrect as well.”

“Just as modern Homo Sapiens displaced Neanderthal man, so too must modern man evolve to the next level of further knowledge, sophistication and refinement.” 

“Humankind’s next phase of evolution will be more an evolution in thought, knowledge, spirituality and consciousness than one involving our biology or physiology…Predicated on credible science, peoples of the world must come to understand that we really are only as strong as our weakest link; that what we do to others we do to ourselves; and that we are indeed our brother’s keeper quite literally. When this comes about, it will be the dawn of a new day, and solutions to every other major threat, problem or challenge we face will quickly find their remedy, but certainly not before. To be sure, we must act quickly to embark on our journey deeper into the quantum realm, for time is not on our side.”

In October, I’ll be at the Pythagoras Conference, showing What On Earth? and speaking. I just read this by Michael Tellinger, who is on the bill with me.

The discoveries keep coming at a rapid pace and it is amazing how everything is starting to fold into one large pond of connected information. Genetic research shows us how we are all connected to the morphogenic field and how every atom in the universe is connected to us at the quantum level, pointing to Unity Consciousness as the backdrop for all of the stuff we see and cannot see. It is now clear that we cannot separate anything from anything else and it is a direct indication of our origins from a unified field of source consciousness.

 I’ve emailed this response:

This is much on my mind now. My thoughts go to the value of popularizing that understanding. We will not change our collective worldview without a new picture in our minds, and that we are embedded in a domain beyond space and time is the basis for that picture. How to get this to be a topic we publicly converse about? I think that is key.

I am looking for allies to make what Edgar Mitchell called “enlightened efforts to establish a fundamental shift in common perceptions.” Does this speak to you and will you join me? I welcome any comments on what I’ve written which I consider to be a work in progress to state the case for this new mission I am on.

And we still have three more webinars to go for DOORWAYS TO ANOTHER REALITY: Peering into Inner and Outer Mysteries, which promise to be as mind-expanding as the first two were.

DOORWAYS TO ANOTHER REALITY — My Upcoming Evolver Webinar Series


Thanks to Evolver Intensives for inviting me to host another four-part webinar series, DOORWAYS TO ANOTHER REALITYhttp://evolverintensives.com/upcoming/st-doorways-another-world.html.

Please check it out and join in. You can get the course free, plus commissions, if others enroll through you! Sign up here: http://evolverintensives.com/affiliate-program.html.

For this one, I’m out of the niche that knows me as an authority about crop circles, which is how we got our good enrollment for the series that was all about the circles. To enroll this one, I could use help from compatriots. Please give an endorsement to lists and friends to tell them they can expect good experiences.

Andy Thomas will do the sole crop circle webinar. I’d rather hear Andy talk about the circles than anyone else, and he’ll blow any closed mind into an awareness that something tangible and very important has been stirred up by the phenomenon. The other guests are my pyschonaut heroes. Edgar Mitchell tuned into a bigger reality than the one he occupied before he walked on the moon, and he created the Institute of Noetic Sciences to tune the rest of us in when he got back. Stephan Schwartz, even before he did pioneering work with remote viewing, inspired me with a talk about how twelve good men could save the world (must have been before women’s lib to impress me). Klaus Dona, my dolphin swim buddy, knows more than anybody else about things found all over the world that don’t fit into the history books. You will be enchanted by all of them!

To help you get you excited enough to enroll, here are comments about the crop circles series I hosted for Evolver last year: http://evolverintensives.com/archives/personal-planetary-transformation.html

I just watched Nancy Talbott…the depth and quality of the presentations has been mind-blowing. Suzanne Taylor, of “What on Earth?,” is the host, and has done an amazing job putting this series together.

I think we were all somewhat blown away by John’s brilliant presentation. It may take a while to fully process…I’ve been wanting John to publish his crop circle research for years. Can’t wait for that to come out.

Here’s an unedited string from the running chat that went on during the first one, by physics and astronomy professor, Jeffrey Wilson, who heads up a very enthusiastic US circle contingent:

If this is the BEGINNING, we’re in for one totally amazing series!!!”

Very Cool, Jeffrey!


holy shit

sorry for the crudity of this statement, but WOW


I’m pretty convinced the circles are the most important thing happening in the world today.

The more you learn about cc’s, the more you are amazed…

I want to be standing next to Jeffrey on 12/23/2012.

This is totally, totally fabulous — this is so true of why we have to be okay with Mystery to want to be a croppie, right?

BRAVO Jeffrey!

high five fist pump 🙂

Suzanne, please make a film about this research!!!

I’m so thankful for this as an opening presentation….

Ohmygod, if this is the BEGINNING, we’re in for one totally amazing series!!!

I’ve got four pages of notes to spend the rest of the week googling now…!

Thank you, terrific presentation!
