Are We In The Midst of A Scientific Revolution? Cassandra Vieten


Published on Dec 15, 2014
Thomas Kuhn described scientific revolutions as “tradition-shattering complements to the tradition-bound activity of normal science,” and noted that they are typically invisible as they are happening and fully recognized only in retrospect. But what if we were aware that we were in the midst of one? This talk will discuss five reasons to believe we may be, and will suggest practices for consciously riding the waves of shifting paradigms.

Cassandra Vieten is the President and CEO of IONS and a scientist at the Mind-Body Medicine Research Group at California Paci c Medical Center Research Institute. Her research has focused on spirituality and health; development of mindfulness-based approaches to cultivating emotional balance and factors, experiences, and practices involved in psycho-spiritual.

She completed her pre- and post-doctoral research training at UC, San Francisco and received her PhD in clinical psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. She is co-author of Living Deeply: The Art and Science of Transformation in Everyday Life (New Harbinger/Noetic Books 2008) and author of Mindful Motherhood: Practical Tools for Staying Sane During Pregnancy and Your Child’s First Year (New Harbinger/Noetic Books 2009).

The Reality of Consciousness ~ Peter Russell


Published on Nov 21, 2014

Wave-particle duality, the uncertainty principle, the collapse of the wave function, and entanglement all point to awareness being an intrinsic aspect of reality. Yet we are still trying to understand them in terms of a worldview that believes the real world to be that
of space, time, and matter, and relegates consciousness to some artifact of brain processes.

Yet the one thing of which we are certain is that we are aware. And it is the one thing the current worldview cannot account for. is profound anomaly will ultimately lead to the full paradigm shift to which contemporary physics is, unwittingly, pointing.

With consciousness as primary, everything remains the same and everything changes. Mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry are unchanged. What changes is our assumption as to what they are describing. They are not describing the unfolding of a physical world, but the unfolding of a universal self-aware field. We are led to the conclusion that the entire cosmos is a vast field of knowing, knowing itself, and in that knowing creating for itself the appearance of a material world. Why then don’t we see it that way? Why does the material world appear devoid of consciousness?

From the deep pools of Eastern wisdom, to the fast-paced rapids of the West, Peter Russell has mastered many fields, and synthesized them with consummate artistry. Weaving his unique blend of scientific rationale, global vision, and intuitive wisdom, Peter brings a sharp, critical mind to the challenge of self-awakening. The next great frontier of human exploration, he shows, is not outer space, but inner space—the development of the human mind.

He has degrees in theoretical physics, experimental psychology, and computer science from the University of Cambridge in England, and has written ten books in this area, including The Global Brain Awakens, Waking Up in Time, and most recently, From Science to God: A Physicist’s Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness.

Quantum Reality and the Spiritual Mind, Lothar Schäfer


The Spiritual Mind is a mind that can search for truths in the non-empirical background
of the universe. The phenomena of quantum physics show that such a background exists, which doesn’t consist of material things, but of non-material forms or patterns of information. These forms are real, even though they are invisible, because they have the potential to act on us. They form a realm of potentiality in the background of the visible reality and all empirical things and concepts are emanations out of this realm. There are indications that the forms in the realm of potentiality are contiguous and mind-like, like the thoughts in our mind. Thus, the background of the universe now appears as an indivisible wholeness, and consciousness is a cosmic property that is mystically connected with our mind.

Your Atomic Self: The Invisible Elements That Connect You to Everything Else in the Universe by Curt Stager (Author)

What do atoms have to do with your life? In Your Atomic Self, scientist Curt Stager reveals how they connect you to some of the most amazing things in the universe.

You will follow your oxygen atoms through fire and water and from forests to your fingernails. Hydrogen atoms will wriggle into your hair and betray where you live and what you have been drinking. The carbon in your breath will become tree trunks, and the sodium in your tears will link you to long-dead oceans. The nitrogen in your muscles will help to turn the sky blue, the phosphorus in your bones will help to turn the coastal waters of North Carolina green, the calcium in your teeth will crush your food between atoms that were mined by mushrooms, and the iron in your blood will kill microbes as it once killed a star.

You will also discover that much of what death must inevitably do to your body is already happening among many of your atoms at this very moment and that, nonetheless, you and everyone else you know will always exist somewhere in the fabric of the universe.

You are not only made of atoms; you are atoms, and this book, in essence, is an atomic field guide to yourself.

Curt Stager was born in Lancaster, PA, in 1956, spent most of his youth in Manchester, CT, and attended Bowdoin College and Duke University. Since 1987, he has been a professor of natural sciences at Paul Smith’s College in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, where he also enjoys playing banjo and guitar, skiing the backcountry, and co-hosting “Natural Selections,” a weekly science program on North Country Public Radio.

The Paradox of Creation: Wake Up You Are God in Disguise by Camillo Loken (Author)

The Paradox of Creation is now being revealed to you. It´s part of the Divine Plan. You move along the circle of creation and you have now reached a point where it´s time to dis-cover and re-member that you really are God in Disguise.

Your current life is about Waking Up in order to once again re-member who you really are. You have reached the awakening part of the circle of creation. We all have. Creation is a paradox and the set-up has been hidden from us as it had to be. Our space-time construct is in place to facility consciousness to experience itself and you are a point of that consciousness.

This book will – reveal to you The Paradox of Creation – show you how un-manifested, unlimited, infinite potential of consciousness is manifesting and facilitating itself through you in order to BE – show you how the subconscious mind is a vital part for the character you play in the game of life – show you how time is not linear, but part of a grand cycle – explain how the game of life is set up and how you can benefit from knowing the rules – help you wake up and once again re-member who you really are There are no coincidences. You are reading this book description for a reason. Listen to your heart – to your intuition – to find out if you are ready to wake up and see who you really are: God in Disguise.

Camillo Loken (1965- ) is an author and international speaker on the subject of raising human consciousness in this ongoing awakening process. He lives in Fredrikstad, Norway with his lovely wife Synnove and their children. He grew up in a family of physicians and atheists. He spent several years abroad studying computer science and economics at University of Toronto, Canada and Marketing, Sales and Management at University of Surrey, Guildford, England. Later on he worked for one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world: Merck, Sharpe & Dohme.

After 11 years as a product manager in this company he changed direction in life completly due to a powerful awakening. He had to follow his heart and as such he became a spiritual seeker full-time and quit his job. He embarked on a journey to seek the truth about creation. This journey led him to incredible meetings with psychics, channelers, shamans and people with near-death experiences from many different continents. He also ended up working with many of them.

During Camillo´s exciting spiritual journey he was also invited to have a special meeting with the renowned humanitarian, spiritual leader and ambassadors of peace Sri Sri Ravi Shankar when he came to Norway in 2012. In 1982 Shankar founded The Art of Living which is now an international organization represented in 152 countries. In 2010 Shankar was named by Forbes Magazine as the fifth most influential person in India. Meeting him was truly a great moment for Camillo. Meeting him and other spiritual people provided Camillo with more pieces to the puzzle of creation. In addition Camillo´s journey also opened a door to The Paradox of Creation by introducing Camillo to a person, who like no other, has experienced the core of creation- The Paradox Point in slow motion.

The insight and wisdom acquired on Camillo´s spiritual journey is being reflected in his spiritual books for the sole/soul purpose of helping you re-member who you really are. They are tools alongside many others tools emerging in this time of awakening. The feminine Yin energy is coming forth to balance out the dominating masculine Yang energy. Camillo is also the author of the books The Paradox of Creation and The Shift in Consciousness. Both available on Amazon as Paperback and Kindle.

Thank God for Evolution: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World by Michael Dowd

View the updated version HERE

“Evolutionize Your Life” pt 1 of 2 with Michael Dowd

This first half of a 2-part series narrated by “evolutionary evangelist” Michael Dowd entails a thoroughly naturalistic overview of the first of three themes in this deep-time presentation: a practical and inspiring understanding of our evolved human nature. The four components of our quadrune brain, roughly in order of their evolutionary ancestry, are the centerpiece: Reptilian (Lizard Legacy), Paleomammalian (Furry Li’l Mammal), Neomammalian (Monkey Mind), and Advanced (prefrontal cortex, or Higher Porpoise).

Challenges (including addictions) ensue from the fact that we moderns are endowed with instincts that served our ancestors but are now mismatched in these times — especially in light of all the “supernormal stimuli” (drugs, alcohol, nicotine, slots gambling, video gaming, internet porn, romance novels, sitcoms, soap operas, reality tv) that our ancestors never faced and that (not surprisingly) can so easily seduce us now. Even those of us without recognized “addictions” too easily become overweight, owing to the abundance and instinctively alluring combinations of food items that our ancestors accessed only rarely in the wild: sugar, salts, and fats.

The deep-time insights of evolutionist David Sloan Wilson are highlighted, as is the work of evolutionary psychologist Deirdre Barrett.

“Evolutionize Your Life” pt 2 of 2, with Michael Dowd

Part 2 (final) of a 2-part series narrated by “evolutionary evangelist” Michael Dowd.

Here the two primary topics explored are (1) an evolutionary understanding of DEATH as “natural and generative at every level of reality — and no less sacred than life, and (2) the trajectory of BIG HISTORY, focusing on innovations that enable cooperation at ever greater scales — and thereby the growth of complexity.

Dowd also celebrates the great popularizers of an inspirational view of mainstream evolution, including cosmic evolution. Examples are shown of the great work of Neil de Grasse Tyson (his extemporaneous and powerful “sermon” at the Beyond Belief conference) and a collage of other science celebrants (incl Carl Sagan) autotuned and set to music by John Boswell (aka Symphony of Science).

Human Purpose and Transhuman Potential: A Cosmic Vision of Our Future Evolution by Ted Chu

For millennia, great thinkers have contemplated the meaning and purpose of human existence; but while most assumed that humanity was the end point of creation or the pinnacle of evolution, Ted Chu makes the provocative claim that the human race may in fact be a means rather than an end—that humankind will give rise to evolutionary successors.

In this wide-ranging and authoritative work, Chu reexamines the question of human purpose in light of the extraordinary developments of science and technology. Arguing that a deep understanding of our place in the universe is required to navigate the magnitude of the choices that lie ahead, he surveys human wisdom from both East and West, traces the evolutionary trajectory that has led to this point, and explores the potentials emerging on the scientific frontier. The book addresses the legitimate fears and concerns of “playing God” but embraces the possibility of transcending biological forms and becoming or creating entirely new life-forms.


Born and raised in China, and spending much of his adult life in America, Ted Chu is currently a clinical professor of economics at New York University (Abu Dhabi, UAE). His ongoing research is focused on globalization, frontiers of technology and institutions, and “posthuman economics,” inclusive of the philosophic and ethical dimensions of transhumanism. Chu graduated from Fudan University in Shanghai, and earned his PhD in economics at Georgetown University.

During his twenty-five years as a business economist, his work included corporate strategy, public policy research, multinational operations, and global financial markets–including roles as chief economist of General Motors and chief economist of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, one of of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds. Dr. Chu also held positions as macroeconomist for the World Bank and Arthur D. Little.

For the last fifteen years, his second career has been conducting independent research on the ethical and philosophical question of humanity’s place in the universe, with special reference to advanced technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. This focus was foreshadowed by his PhD thesis on the production efficiency frontier at Georgetown University. Chu has also read widely and deeply in evolutionary theory, history, politics, philosophy, and religious studies (East and West).

Dr. Chu is the founder of the nonprofit CoBe (Cosmic Being) Institute in Michigan, a senior scholar at ChangCe, a Beijing-based independent think tank, and a former president of Greater Washington Professional Forum. He has received a national award for dedicated community service and has served as a policy advisor for governments and many multinational institutions. Ted Chu’s extensive lines of interdisciplinary research have combined in-depth theoretical analysis and the fruits of practical, real-world experience.

“What Is Consciousness & Where Is It?” – Deepak Chopra


What Is Consciousness & Where Is It?” Featuring Deepak Chopra

What is the fundamental activity in the universe? Although neuroscience has made enormous progress in looking at the brain correlates of subjective and objective experience, there is still no theory on how we experience mental or perceptual reality. This is known as the “hard problem” in consciousness research.

• Is there a scientifically viable way to explain consciousness?
• Does mainstream science have the methodologies to address this question?
• How do we explain intention, insight, intuition, imagination, creativity, or free will?
• Is free will an illusion?
• Are there states of consciousness that go beyond waking, dreaming and sleeping?

Wisdom traditions speak of higher states of consciousness such as soul consciousness, cosmic consciousness, divine consciousness, and unity consciousness. Is there a way of understanding these states or validating them scientifically? Is our current science which is based on a subject/object split equipped to answer these mysteries? What is the nature of the universe? What is the of nature awareness that makes it possible for us to experience the universe?

Deepak is addressing in this talk these questions as well as others cosmic riddles.

DEEPAK CHOPRA is the author of more than seventy books translated into over thirty-five languages, including numerous New York Times bestsellers in both the fiction and nonfiction categories. Deepak is the Founder of The Chopra Foundation, Co-founder of The Chopra Center for Wellbeing, Adjunct Professor of Executive Programs at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, Adjunct Professor at Columbia Business School, Columbia University, and Senior Scientist with The Gallup Organization. Time magazine heralds Deepak Chopra as one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century and credits him as ‘the poet-prophet of alternative medicine’.

Scientific Heresies: Heralds of a Nondualistic Mythology, Charles Eisenstein


Published on Feb 6, 2014

Why do some heterodox scientific theories attract such vehement ridicule, while others are merely contentious? From adaptive mutation to psi phenomena to water memory to UFOlogy, from plant consciousness to morphic resonance, the “excluded other” in science points to a transition in the defining mythology of civilization. Each bespeaks a universe in which intelligence, purpose, and consciousness are not the sole province of human beings, vitiating a key pillar of dualistic thinking. Because they pose such an ideological and psychological threat, these theories incite a more-than-intellectual hostility. This talk will explore the crisis of science and the emergence of a new mythology that might, not replace, but transcend and include it.

CHARLES EISENSTEIN
Charles Eisenstein is a teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. His books (The Ascent of Humanity and Sacred Economics) as well as his other essays and blog posts on web magazines have generated a vast online following; he speaks frequently at conferences and other events, and gives numerous interviews on radio and podcasts.

Writing in Ode magazine’s “25 Intelligent Optimists” issue, David Korten (author of When Corporations Rule the World) called Eisenstein “one of the up-and-coming great minds of our time.” Eisenstein graduated from Yale University in 1989 with a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy, and spent the next ten years as a Chinese-English translator. He currently lives in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania with his wife and three sons. http://charleseisenstein.net/

Fearless Science, Cassandra Vieten

Published on Feb 6, 2014

The frontier of science is the investigation of consciousness–in particular, the nonlocal,causal, and nondual aspects of consciousness. This cutting edge of science, far from being fringe, is investigating the most centrally important questions of our time. And yet, these controversial topics are often challenged as being “unscientific” by the mainstream scientific community. In fact, there are no unscientific topics. The scientific endeavor should not be held back by limitations in our imagination and ingenuity. A scientist, and CEO and President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Cassandra Vieten will discuss the frontiers of scientific investigation of nonduality and consciousness.
