[A Special Note: The view being presented herein is an alternative world view developed by its author, and should not be taken as an exposition of 'legacy' physics. C.G.] I. Ants On A Balloon. The idea of an expanding universe occurred to Edwin Hubble in the early 1920's, when he examined 'nebula', faint smudges of distant light, with a newer and more powerful telescope at Mt. Wilson, California. The smudges resolved into galactic shapes. He discovered from interpreting their spectra that not only did the emission lines of atoms show a lower frequency, or red-ward shifting compared to closer light sources, but that the further away the galaxy was estimated to be, the greater the red-ward shift. This was interpreted to mean that the galaxies were moving away from one another like ants on the surface of a balloon that is being inflated. Georges Lemaitre proposed that cause of this expansion was that all matter and energy had once been concentrated in a "Primeval Atom," which exploded in a titanic "Big Bang." The Big Bang theory did require modification as time went on. For one thing, subsequent calculations showed that the expansion needed to be many times faster at the beginning than later, and the "Inflationary model", which went through several changes, was born. Later it was discovered that rather than slowing down as a result of gravity, the rate of expansion was increasing.This highly unexpected result might be explained, it was supposed, by positing a "dark" energy" that was pushing the galaxies apart. All of this is mainly to explain the red-ward shifting of light coming from very distant sources. The kind of expansion thought to be occurring has been called gauge invariant, because it presumes that material objects retain the same scale. A commonly used analogy is that of ants on an expanding balloon: the balloon inflates, and the ants (galaxies) move apart creating relative space, but the ants remain at a the same size as a result of gravity. But it is also a hypothesis of convenience, for if size or gauge, within the galaxy remains constant, local physics do not have to be changed. Both the Ant and the Balloon Expand. We propose that an entirely distinct kind of expansion, one we shall call universal gauge expansion, in which the ant is expanding at the same rate as the balloon.* To make the analogy more apt, we shall imagine that the ant drawn in ink. But in this kind of expansion, the galaxies would not actually be moving apart, disregarding relative motions. Everything would simply be getting bigger--not only the space between the galaxies, but the galaxies themselves, and even the atoms within the galaxies. The ant would grow in size with the balloon. This idea of a universe in which everything expands uniformly can be laid at the doorstep of Roger Joseph Boscovich, a contemporary of Newton and Leibniz. Boscovich was a Jesuit, and

the Vatican's "science guy." In an exposition of his system (in which atoms were like points), he said it was conceivable that the universe could expand and contract in size daily without our being aware of it. A simple analogy which ought to convince us that this could actually 'work,' is to imagine ourselves as part of an image which is being enlarged or decreased by a zoom lens. Everything in the image, all objects and the space between them, can be enlarged with the twist of the lens. The relation of elements, one to the other within the image, does not change. We are a part of the image being zoomed--a view the expansion from outside introduces a distortion. Suppose our universe, without our being aware of it, expanded to twice its previous size. Could we tell the difference? We'd probably notice it if the length of the second remained the same. If we measured the speed of light we would find that it was only half of what we expected it to be (since it had to travel twice as far).But if the zooming of space had been accompanied by a zooming of time so that the second was also twice as long, the measurement would come out right. Boscovich apparently did not develop the his speculations about expansion further (in which case he would have had to deal with the time aspect), although the statement implies a relationship between time and space which we call the gauge rule. A convenient rule-of-thumb is: the bigger the clock, the slower it runs. But the time used in the gauge rule is not measured by the standard clock of physics, where we assume that the number of standard seconds is the quantity of time, and as space increases, the number of standard seconds increases proportionately.We are proposing that the length of the second expands. In the gauge rule, if one deals with length as a fundamental unit which can increase or decrease in size, then the fundamental unit of time, the second, can be imagined to expand and contract, as well. In other words, the rate of change of length divided by the the rate of change of time equals a constant. Since units of measurement are arbitrary, the constant may be set as c, the observed speed of light. Use of the gauge rule is restricted: one can't simply scale up size and expect time to be slower. Something more fundamental is involved, and that something is the behavior of what we call the "self-enclosed wave," a fundamental, pulsating, pattern, which we shall deal with in the next section. Dewey B. Larson, an engineer, earlier developed what he called the Reciprocal System, in which a relation quite similar to what we have called the gauge rule plays a pivotal part: the concept of space (length) and time (seconds) as reciprocals of one another. Larson also conceived of an expanding universe, but one consistent with the current (ant-on-a-balloon) view. And his reciprocal system seems to be based on length as defined by the number of standard units, and time as the number of standard seconds.Because he saw universal expansion as having magnitude (speed) but no (actually an infinite number of) linear direction (s), he called it scalar, rather than vector motion.* * * Our personal inclination is to call it zoom expansion. * *The official site for Larson's system is: ,Dr. Bruce Peret, proprietor. II. The Fundamental Mass Unit Hypothesis. We can measure space with a rule and time with a clock, apparently directly. But mass, a property of matter, cannot be so measured; we measure instead resistance to acceleration, and posit that some attribute of matter gives rise to the resistance. But resistance to acceleration is a relation and not a something which can exist independently of relation. Now one would think that in this case there must be a somethingness to mass, and that this somethigness is involved in the relation. If it only exists as a relation, then what is its status when it is not relating? If it can't be measured, in other words, does it exist? We prefer to deal

with material substance, then, as a persisting something which exists independently of relations, one of the relations of which is mass. It is a common truism that the the total rest mass of an object can be divided by dividing the material in the object. Half of the loaf is about half the mass of the whole loaf. We can take the division to the size of atoms, at which point we must either stop or break the atom up into smaller parts. The atom has mass, and the parts of the atom, electrons, neutrons and protons, as well as the "pieces" they are broken into. It seems that the atomic level is not the primary level of organization, for below that are the elusive quarks. Where does divisibility end? Does the final product of division, itself, have mass, or is mass a relation created between parts at an even finer level? Fortunately, for the purposes of our discussion, we do not need to know. What we shall do is to employ a working hypothesis, which can be described in these terms: There is a unit of materiality that we shall call the fundamental mass unit which is the smallest (observable) amount of gravitational and inertial mass. Note that the fmu need not be an actual particle--that's not important here--its merely the smallest, concrete, unit of mass to which we have need to make reference. Our purpose for positing the fmu is this. Physics, in considering mass as a fundamental quantity, is defining mass in terms of relative amounts of mass. Relative amounts of mass can be measured and compared.What we want to do is to explore relations the relations of mass as a thing of itself, and the relations of that to other masses. We can say that the proper mass of an object is the sum of the fmu's it contains: m=n(fmu). For example, when Newton's apple fell, we can more properly say that gravity acted not on the mass as a quantity, but upon each fmu individually. It is the individual fmu that is accelerated, and hence the accelerated speed of falling is not determined by the quantity of fmu's it contains, but on the acceleration of each individual fmu. Or, let us consider the famous Law of Gravitation, F=Gm1m2/d^2. Why multiply one mass by the other?( one might ask). While m1m2 is a product, it is also a sum. The first mass, m1, contains n1 fundamental mass units, and the second, n2, fmu. Each fmu of n1 has n2 relations with the second mass. The sum of all the relations of the fmu's of m1 with m2 is simply m1m2. Suppose a solid object in our vicinity suddenly disappeared, or shall we say, dematerialized. What happens to the mass? We can imagine that the mass becomes imaginary, which is another way of saying not detectable. The framework of our thinking is structured on detectability. If it cannot be measured, it does not exist, is a rule of thumb for physical reality. It is necessary, for our purposes, to borrow a term from the physics of energy and posit kinetic mass and potential mass. The energy of an object raised to a higher elevation, for example, is considered to be potential. Following this line of thought, we will conceive of the mass of a disappearing object becoming potential. The need for doing this will soon be clear when we consider the possibility of a physical object being phase-shifted. If it is moved slightly ahead, or backward in the time cycle, it would, no doubt, disappear from our environment. We can then consider that its' mass has become potential, rather than ceasing to exist. A Cause of Mass? As a result of the "zoom" expansion we have suggested, any two physical objects in the present instant are further apart than they were in the previous instant. A slight lag in expansion would be equivalent to their being slightly accelerated backward in time toward a closer conjunction.Hence, it might seem to the observer that they attracted one another gravitationally. But how do we account for a backward motion? It is the mass, after all, that is the evidence of the expansion. We think that we must posit a varying rate of expansion. The expansion is not linear, but speeds up and slows down as we expect cyclical time to do. If the rate of expansion

increases, then each second will be slightly longer. A driver of an accelerating automobile will feel a backward force on their body resulting from inertia. Inertial mass, thus, means a minimum amount of energy is continually required to change the time path. If, on the other hand, the rate of expansion is decreasing, or increasing, there also will be an inertial effect. But there is another analogy which might be more to the point: a point on a the edge of a spinning disc is continually changing direction. If the Brahman wave* is spinning dimensionally, it is making a continual deviation in direction. What we are certain about at this point is this: Inertial mass, in our scheme, is the resistance to diverting the time path of the gauge pulse.* * This and other terms will be explained shortly. III. The Minkowski Coordinate System. In 1908, Hermann Minkowski unveiled a coordinate system of four dimensions, x,y,z+t, in which time was treated in the same way as the three spatial dimensions.A three-dimensional point became a world line because of its dimensional extension in time.Minkowski used a commonplace mathematical assumption, that an infinite number of points can be placed on a line. For any two points, the thinking goes, a third point can be imagined to be interposed between them. For the purposes of pure math this is satisfactory but when applied to a physical model it has led physics into, we believe, what Whitehead called "the fallacy of misplaced concreteness," commonly expressed as "mistaking the map for the territory." We know there are no infinitely small parcels of mass, matter, or energy. What are we to make of an infinitely small time or length? Can there be such a thing in a world that seems to be otherwise quantized? In the view we are presenting, there are no infinitely large or small quantities in the relative world of materiality and forces.Hence we must conclude that there is a grain to space and to time as well, a minimal extension.Hence, we would replace Minkowski's world-point with a worldminimum. A second objection that we entertain to the Minkowski system is the assumption that the future is an extension of the past. We can see the near past as an extension of the less near past, and it is convenient to project this forward beyond the present instant to a future we have not yet experienced, but which is as real as the past. We think there is reason to believe that the future, that is, the future we will experience, exists only in potential.* There is an important distinction to be made.In the view we have developed and are presenting here, there are multiple waves of time, one behind the other. These waves ripple through a medium we call subspace and leave a slowly damping-out effect. The residue of one wave modifies the probabilities of the next which increases the liklihood that its' content will be similar. *If we are applying the coordinate system to the past, or hypothetically,this objection may be disregarded. There Is No Common Dimension of Time. When speaking of the expansion of the universe, it is fundamental mass units that are actually separating. As they do, the relative space between them increases, or is "created." We will assume that the expansion is radial, like an expanding balloon. So a concentration of fmu's will separate as they expand outward.The direction of expansion is the fmu's dimension of time. But we might treat the overall expansion as scalar, because each fmu has a different direction. But one must not confuse the 3+1, Classical, approach with the gauge expansion model

presented here, where everything gets bigger, like the zoomed image, without relative motion within the image.We propose that a four-dimensional, expansion is occurring, so that the overall increase in size also occurs in the fourth, or temporal dimension..The expansion is occurring at the observed speed of light (3x 10^8 m/s). An analogy we find useful in understanding relative motion, is that of two speedboats traveling at an identical speed, v, across a lake. One of the boats, by means of its rudder, diverts its course by a certain angle. Each boat will see the other begin to drift away at a constant speed. Two objects at relative rest are like the boats when their courses are parallel. The forward motion is not noticeable (one boat compared to the other). But the divergence is noticeable. What we propose is that the forward motion is the direction of expansion, and that is the boats' dimension of time. Note that the speed of the boats is always v. The speed of drifting apart is relative motion. So when the time lines of two objects diverge, they have relative relative motion to one another,.There is the additional condition that the divergence be quantised, and so there would be a minimum unit of divergence, which must be an important physical constant. If the two boats do not diverge, they will both be traveling in the same direction.What seems to be a common dimension of time is actually units of materiality traveling together with minimal divergence at a common group speed.They are at rest, relative to one another, in time. A "unit of materiality" will always travel at a rate of c, and does not change its direction without the application of a force ( this is essentially a restatement of Newton's First Law of Motion). What the application of force does is to change the object's time path of expansion. The amount of force is equal to the angle of divergence, which is directly proportional to the relative speed produced. There is no common dimension of time. Every object has its own time path. Objects at rest relative to one another are traveling on parallel time paths which makes it seem as if there is a common dimension. The time path is the direction through subspace. The Minkowski 3+1 coordinate system, must be treated very carefully. The universal expansion creates more of a "world cone," than a world line. But more fundamental than that, the 3+1 viewpoint assumes that mass, and matter, have a real existence, whereas in our approach, materiality is a gauge effect in subspace. The Special Theory of Relativity. A well known thought-experiment of the special theory of relativity involves an accelerating space ship and an earthly observer. The observer, watching the spaceship depart through a telescope is limited, for information, to electromagnetic energy emitted by the spaceship.He sees the light from the ship progressively spread out in wavelength, that is, shift red-ward. As the speed of the ship increases, the distant observer will see the frequency diminish through the infrared to invisibility. If an image of a clock were transmitted, the seconds would be seen becoming longer and longer. Relying on the Special Theory, he interprets this to mean that time on board the ship is slowing down, and it seems as if the mass is increasing. But this is an inference because he actually has no knowledge about the mass nor any way of actually measuring it. His conclusion is that the ship will never pass light speed, because if it should reach it, the mass would become infinitely large. It is assumed that the motive power of the spaceship remains constant, so if the light waves shift redward in frequency, it is assumed that it is because of a slowdown of time. The acceleration of the ship is decreasing, and hence its mass is increasing. The special theory predicts a dimensional rotation in space-time. What we are proposing is that it is the spaceship's time dimension (time path) that rotates. Its' time dimension is simply the direction through subspace. It is our conclusion that the primary weakness of the special theory of relativity is the unqualified assumption of a common time dimension which allows the observer's frame of reference to be projected onto the observed.

The problem lies not in the math, but the assumption that the observer's frame of reference can be projected onto the moving spaceship.In its' own way, a very subtle misinterpretation has occurred due to the limitations of the 3+1 classical perspective. Hence the observer does not see the true state of affairs due to an observational limitation, but he is projecting these limitations onto what he is seeing. He explains the lengthening of wavelength as an increase in size and a slowing down of time and an increase in the mass of the spaceship. But an observer on the spaceship sees exactly these same conditions applying to the world of the distant observer. If one accepts the implication of relative motion, one must accept this. If the spaceship is leaving the galaxy at the speed of light, the galaxy is leaving the spaceship at the speed of light. Of course, we of the galaxy are not aware of the departing spaceship, and consider time and mass as constant as ever. There is a special condition involving light necessary in our view, and that is that light is received from the past, and emitted into the future at an angle of 45 degrees. It travels, in other words through both time and space. If one draws a chart, at light speed the emitted light is parallel to the time path of the observer. Receding relative motion decreases this angle, reddening the light and approaching relative motion increases the angle makes it bluer (the converging Andromeda Galaxy shows a slight blue shift). While the time path of the spaceship rotates, the observer cannot see the new direction of the time path as time, but sees it as space. We propose that the observation of a rapidly accelerating, departing, spaceship will show that as the observed speed of light is approached the light frequencies are spread out (reddened) to an infinite wavelength, and the spaceship will fade from view. This is an observational limitation which has no effect whatsoever on the spaceship which can continue to accelerate to well beyond light speed.An observer on the spaceship, however, will continue to measure the speed of light as c with on board equipment. There is an apt illustration of observational limitation in the Doppler shift of frequencies. Christian Doppler stood beside a railroad track listening to the increase in pitch of horn players on an approaching flatcar, and the decreasing pitch as the flatcar moved away, and attributed the change in pitch to the speed of the flatcar and not a foreshortening or lengthening of time itself. Relying on the Special Theory, the observer concludes the results correspond to a dimensional rotation of the spaceship. Unknown to him, it is the time path (or individual time dimension) which has rotated. Rather than saying that physical object cannot exceed the speed of light, we would qualify the statement by adding "relative to observation." The captain of a spaceship can continue to accelerate, as long as fuel allows, to and beyond the speed of light. But the catch is that an inboard light speed measuring device will always show light speed to be 3x10^8 m/s faster than the ship (which can be considered to be at rest for the measurement). Hence, the Second Postulate will be found to hold.The ship can never reach light speed, as (most) kittens cannot catch their tail. At this point the reader may bring up the failure of laboratory attempts to accelerate a particle to faster than light speeds. But if the particle is accelerated by equipment at rest, the force exerted on the particle diminishes as speed increases,-- which would seem to be equivalent to its "mass" increasing. If we recall correctly, Whitehead logically deduced a similar rotation of time in "Science and the Modern World." IV. Expanding Earth Theory. If a four-dimensional gauge expansion is occurring, then our planet is also expanding at the speed of light. Since the planet's gravity is greatest near the surface, we might expect--if gravity results from

a lag in that expansion--that the lag is greater there than in the interior. If one, thus, has an expanding sphere of which the surface expands at a slightly slower rate than the interior, one might conclude that the surface would be subjected to cracking. If we follow this line of thought backward, we can easily imagine how the continents came into being. At some remote time in its history, we imagine, the planet was completely covered by primeval ocean, and what are now the continents formed its sea bed. Slowly, although faster at some time than others, the sea bed cracked in great circle lines and slowly the ocean subsided into the widening cracks. Land life could not develop before this occurred, and for a long duration the emerging continents would have been subjected to daily flooding and drying as a result of tides. If the above is true, then the edges of the continents should show great circle cracks of a smaller diameter planet. It is also unavoidably implied that the continents would be found upon examination, to fit together as the surface of a smaller diameter sphere--this is our interpretation of what we have found to be an idea of some provenance. Main stream geophysics seems to be progressing in this direction, most notably the work of James Maxlow (there are a growing number of others). The actual expansion occurs along the edges of the continental plates which are slowly separating, and as they do so, molten rock oozes up to fill the crack created, in a process known as sea floor spreading. Dr. Maxlow's approach involves the fact that the earth's magnetic field periodically reverses. The molten rock acquires the magnetic polarity of the field as it cools, and hence bands of opposing polarities (magnetic striping) are created. These bands show a general outline of the continental plates at the edges, and they can be tracked backward to show that continents separate because the sea floor has been getting larger rather than the continental plates drifting as in Alfred Wegener's scheme. According to Maxlow, 200 million years ago the land mass of the earth was united as a single continent (the entire crustal surface) of the Earth which was estimated to be about 52% of its current size. But this value (apparently derived from calculating the size of a sphere with a surface area equal to the current continental area) does not take into account our proposal of gauge expansion. An enthusiastic proponent of the expanding earth idea is noted cartoonist Neal Adams, who has produced several videos of the proposed process (q.v.). * * * * * *

I. An Introduction to Subspace.
We shall turn our attention to space, itself, which in its true nature we have given the name subspace to avoid confusion with relative space-time. But, since four dimensions of space are required, and each dimension may be space-like or time-like (Euclidean) , one has the option of 4+0, 0+4, and three 3+1 spaces. Hence, what is called 'hyperspace', which we take to be a 4+0 space, is a specific conception of subspace. Subspace is substantive, rather than a metrical nothingness. But it is, as we have said, not relative space. Since it is vibratory and composed of discrete units, it can support wave motion. In

some respects subspace resembles an aether with the important distinction that: subspace is not something in space, but space itself. This space is considered to be boundless.It is also grainy. The closely packed grains are bubble-like, vibrating, wave motions which vibrate backward and forward in four simple harmonic motions, and in doing so, contain, or enclose themselves. We call this special sort of wave the self-enclosed wave, and consider it to be the fundamental pattern of physical existence.It is smaller and vibrates faster than any physically detectable vibration.Could we see it, it possibly would appear to us as a bubble. It is a wave that might appear to be a thing. The S.E.W., or self-enclosed wave, follows what we call the gauge rule , so that l/t=k, (where k is the observed speed of light, l is spatial size, and t is the length of the second). In other words, the ratio of space to time is a constant, c . So as the SEW increases in size, its' time slows, and vice versa.When Boscovich's universe gets smaller, its time runs faster because its seconds are not as long. The gauge rule is essential to maintain the observed speed of light as a constant in a universe which may change in size. The reader may see that we are adopting the Second Postulate of the STR, which establishes the observer's measurement of the speed of light, c, as a fundamental constant. The gauge rule is actually implicit in our current world view, for there is the assumption that ratio between the scale of space and the length of the second is unvariably constant. We do not know the two do not vary, but we know that if they do, they must vary in such a way to be unnoticeable. Subspace is much too dense to allow for any kind of materiality to pass through it.What can pass through is a type of wave motion we call the gauge wave. Since subspace is composed of discrete vibrating units, any wave motion will be broken up into quantized gauge pulses. As we may repeatedly say herein, "the gauge rule applies." Subspace, is not the relative space with which we are familiar. The "ground floor" conception of the world of naive human experience, the current culture and even science, is still local 3+1 space and linear time. Dimensionality as a pure abstraction, in our opinion, has little meaning except as a coordinate system applied to materiality. Local space is relative. While we might believe that we have a fairly clear idea of what space is, time is a persisting mystery. We can call it a dimension, and measure it with a clock, but it is not exactly the same kind of dimension as the other three spatial dimensions. One can walk across a park with ease, but it is practically impossible to stroll into the park of yesterday or tomorrow. C. Howard Hinton, a 19th century mathematician (and son-in-law of George Boole for those who like such gossip) noted that although time may be an extension, it is also motion along that extension. This prompts an idea--perhaps we can't walk into tomorrow because the motion of time is so rapid that we can't walk fast enough. If everything in our vicinity is expanding at the speed of light, then that's really the rate at which things change, and so we shall propose that that's the speed of time. In this way, clocktime and the expansion of the universe are differing perspectives of the same event. So we might modify Hinton's insight to read that the direction of motion through subspace is the dimension of temporal extension. Many years ago, while musing on the nature of space and time, we idly jotted down the sequence: A,B,C,+D with A, B, and C representing dimensions of space while D represented time. It occurred to us that if we allowed ourselves the latitude of treating the dimensional extensions of space and time as entirely equivalent (Euclidean), the possibilities of B,C,D +A , A,C,D +B, and A,B,D +C worlds becomes obvious. So from four equivalent dimensions, one can construct four worlds, each with its' own time dimension. Here the nascent idea languished for a year or so, until we began to consider the possibility that rather than four distinct dimensions of time there was instead a four-dimensional hyperspace and that time was a motion with a dimensional spin that cycled it through all four worlds successively.Rather than static condition of the first insight, this created a dynamic world of frequency and motion.

The English philosopher, Samuel Alexander, thought that the basis of all physical reality was motion, and we find considerable insight in this view which was later embraced by Dewey B. Larson. II. The Self-Enclosed Wave (S.E.W.) The self-enclosed wave is our version of the perennial Monad, the One Element, of the ancients, from which all else is compounded. Leibniz developed a monadology in which the basic unit of existence was a 'soul.' There were three kinds of monads, human souls, animal souls, and the souls which created matter. Leibniz's conception followed that of Giordano Bruno, the fiery 16th century advocate of the Copernican system who was burned alive in Rome in 1600 for his heresies, especially that of promoting the Copernican doctrine. Bruno says, in De Minimus, (thanks to the translations of Dorothy Waley Singer), "The minimum is the substance of all things, and thou will await it at length as the largest of things. This is the monad, the atom." He also says, in De Magica (again, Singer), "Thus...the soul of the individual is continuous with the soul of the universe." Bruno believed in the substantive nature of space, saying that it was, "not matter, but what we think to call matter." So there is reason for thinking that Bruno's space was, if not entirely composed of, minima. Leibniz, who originally held with Newton's view of space later modified it to a relative view. Leibniz's monads formed matter, not space. Our own view is closest to that of Brother Jordanus (Bruno's nom de plume) in that it is substantive and formed of monadic units which are not matter, but a special kind of wave which vibrates back-and-forth in time as well as in space, and is consequently hyperdimensional. We might use the model of an expanding and contracting sphere to illustrate fourdimensionality. But rather than a material object, let's consider it as a pure wave motion. All times in our approach are cyclical, specifically, simple harmonic motion, or SHM. If all four vibrations are in phase with one another, one can imagine a spherical wave which increases to a certain size, slows, stops, and then decreases once again. This wave doesn't spread out indefinitely-- it attains a certain size in the positive time of its' cycle,and then contracts when its time becomes negative (an expansion in negative time is equivalent to a contraction in positive time). All four dimensions are undergoing a vibration of the same frequency, but with a phase displacement relative to one another. Hence, it encloses, or contains, itself. If the vibration were very, very, fast (and it is), and could we see it from our dimension of time, it might appear as a bubble. An Oriental might be inclined to say, perhaps, a pearl. The universe of our conception, then, is a vast field of closely packed self-enclosed waves of minimum size and maximum frequency. This field is much too dense for a physical object to move through, and furthermore does not have overall, universal, dimensions of space and time. The phenomenal universe is created by a self-enclosed wave of the lowest frequency and maximum size, whiich we call the Brahman wave, whose vibrations sweep out across the minima of the field creating interference effects. The discontinuous nature of the field breaks up these vibrations into gauge pulses. We conceive that these gauge pulses entirely define the physical universe. As we have said, this is pure wave motion, so the S.E.W. is something of a bubble, whose size is always proportional to its rate of vibration. The gauge rule applies. So we have an eternal wave which doesn't go anywhere, but which has the characterics of a particle. The gauge pulses do go somewhere--they ride the vibrations, radially outward at the observed speed of light. And that speed is always the speed of the universal expansion. All relative motion resolves down to a change in the radial direction of expansion of the gauge pulses. The self-enclosed wave is conceived to be eternal and individual, a continuous wave which

continually turns back on itself in an endlessly repeating pattern. It is the substance of all things. Jumping up" from one level to another is equivalent to moving from point-to-point along a line. The difference results from attempting to squeeze 4 dimensions into a 3-dimensional framework. Stephen Hawking, in "A Brief History of Time," discusses a four-dimensional universe of Euclidean space-time which is, in his terms, self-contained, without beginning or end. The Brahman Wave. In the view of Bernard (or Baruch) Spinoza, the third great European monadologist, the Monad was Divine, and the laws of nature were the laws of Divinity. Spinoza's view seems to be closer to the concept of Brahman than the Bible Deity, and is close to our concept of the Brahman wave, which also a Self-Enclosed Wave, the fundamental unit of consciousness as well as materiality. Srila Prabhupada, in The Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, gives four definitions for Brahman: (1): the individual [spirit]-soul (Atman), (2) the impersonal all-pervasive aspect of the Supreme, (3) the Supreme Personality of the Godhead, (4) the mahat-tattva, or total material substance. In our conception, mahat-tattva includes the material of all four phase rooms, which we also believe are the "Four bodies of Brahma[n]." The Brahman Wave is the field of consciousness of the universe, and certainly in this sense, it is Brahman, the totality. It is our conception that the individualized consciousness of humans, the Atman, is also a self-enclosed wave. Without the distinction of space and time, which the selfenclosed waves create, all SEWs might be considered to be differing states of a single pattern. It is in this sense, we believe, that Atman is Brahman. This echos Bruno's conception of the soul of the individual as continuous with the soul of the universe. We conceive of the beginning of the universe as the outward expansion of a very long cycle self-enclosed wave (the Brahman wave) spreading outward. However, the energy creating the Brahman wave is thought to be too great to be dispersed in one shell of quantized gauge pulses, so there is an endless wave train of these pulses, one behind the other. Gauge waves, having longitudinal as well as transverse components, in certain ways are comparable to ordinary sound, so we are describing an omniverse which the sound of Creation is more of a continuing "Big Aum," than a singular "Big Bang." The intoned Aum sounds like a harmonic hum of, On, and is similar to three successive C's (if one will) sounded on a piano. These are the first second and fourth harmonics, an arrangement we shall consider later in stacking patterns of self-enclosed waves. Russian mystic and writer, P. D. Ouspensky, tells us in A New Model Of The Universe, of a vision of the form of the universe. He saw a beautiful flower, a lotus, whose petals continually unfolded from its center, traveling outward as they grew, and folded back under the flower to be eternally recycled. The flower was filled with activity, light, and sound, and had the vision been even more complete, a voice told him, "it would have been Brahma[n], Himself." The Gauge Pulse. Let's consider an analogy to show the propagation of the gauge pulse: Suppose we go to an amusement park and find a novel ride being offered. The ride appears to be similar to a group of round cafe tables pushed together. These discs are continually expanding and contracting in phase with one another, in simple harmonic motion. At minimum expansion they are barely large enough to stand on, but at maximum expansion their edges touch. To ride this arrangement, one steps onto the edge of a disc at maximum expansion, rides to to minimum, steps over center and rides it outward to the next disc. And so on. With a little practice one can ride the disc field at constant speed, s. The expansion of the universe results from the Brahman wave, broken up into quantized pulses propagating through four-dimensional subspace.The propagation is both an increase in scale, each

cycle, plus a dimensional spin, and is at the observed speed of light.But, as we have said, the field is densely packed, so the field S.E.W.'s cannot simply expand without restriction. But there is a way in which this can happen. Suppose we scoop up a handful of soft wet snow and compacts it into a snowball and replace it in the cavity created by the removal of snow. If we can compress, or squeeze a quantity of S.E.W.'s into a smaller, denser,size, then presumably, the cavity will be filled by surrounding S.E.W.'s which expand to larger than normal gauge to form a shell with a dense center. By the gauge rule, the center will be higher in frequency and it will be surrounded by a low frequency shell. This leads us to suppose that the electron shell of an atom is in the future of the nucleus (as it ought to be). Another analogy: suppose we dig a hole in a sandy beach and pile the excavated sand around the hole. We thus have created three levels of sand: that of the pile, that of the original beach, and the hole. Since gauge expansion is a transition from higher to lower frequency (its getting bigger), the shell (pile of sand) will be in the future of the hole (dense center). In other words a gauge effect has been created in subspace. This gauge pulse in propagating radially outward creates the expanding of the universe. The gauge pulse is also expanding, but the radial motion is one dimensional.All relative motion involves the divergence of these radii. III. The Pyramid Model. There is a model at hand to show the relationship we have been discussing, which is also one of the most common forms to come down to us from antiquity: the pyramid.

Two separate motions are combined: dimensional spin and universal expansion. We can imagine the combination of the two to be as a conical helix descending in a clockwise motion. The increase in size from top to bottom shows the expansion,

while the (descending) circular path around the pyramid shows the dimensional spin (of course, only two dimensions can be shown) which takes the gauge pulse through four successive phase states, each with its unique time dimension. What we know as clock time, and that which defines a phase room, is the path down one face of the pyramid. Hence a phase room is a succession of phase states. We've replaced the arbitrary A,B,C+D notation with a diurnal sequence familiar to all.

An Idea About Time(1): Henri Bergson The French philosopher and writer, Henri Bergson, was struck by the idea that the world we know was like a movie-- it did not exist continuously, but was composed discrete instants (frames). Some took the movie analogy seriously. Bertrand Russell commented that he attended his first movie to explore Bergson's theory of time! One would expect that the technology of the motion picture was the genesis of Bergson's idea. Perhaps we might extend it to create an analogy. What we know as the atom may be a sequence of several phase state instants.Thus although we may occasionally refer to Bergsonian time as a path down a face of the pyramid, it has the potential of adding confusion in the mind of the reader. In De Broglie's wave model of the atom, the atom is not the vibrations, per se, but a persisting pattern of nodes and anti nodes formed by standing waves. So we must be careful not to over extend the movie frame analogy. But having said that, let's expand the Bergsonian idea a little. Suppose we took four separate movies, cut the frames apart, and reassembled them in the sequence a1,b1,c1,d1,a2,b2,c2, and so on, to make one film out of the four. If we projected this altered film, and had special glasses with shutters that opened every quarter of a cycle, we could see any of the four films with a slight adjustment of the shutters (of course, the projection lamp would have to be four times as bright, and the projector would have to run four times faster). The point we wish to make here, is that our brains and nervous systems may be capable of directly perceiving events in other phase rooms, and there is more than a hint in paranormal reports that living creatures may have the ability to phase shift , that is, move from one phase room to another. The descending helical path of the gauge pulse (re:the pyramid model), is a combination of two distinct motions. One is the overall expansion, and the second is the dimensional spin that takes it through the dayside, twilightside, nightside and dawnside states in an endless sequence. In each one of the sides it is traveling in a different dimension of time. We shall call its position on a side a phase state and a succession of phase states a phase room. Hence, our 3+1 universe is the dayside phase room. What we know as ordinary time is not smooth but made up, as we have seen, of a sequence of discrete jumps. The other three phase rooms could be said to be multiplexed in between instants of our clock time. The other three sides of the pyramid model show states of materiality entirely comparable to that which we know in the dayside phase room. While the gauge pulses forming our world travel through all four phase states endlessly-- we must entertain the notion that parts of the atom are strung out in time and phase--we can expect that there will be gauge pulses which form units of materiality, which are continually out-ofphase, and to a certain degree undetectable from the dayside phase room. One might think of an auto traveling round and round a spiral ramp, appearing in only one of four phase rooms

(compass points)at a time. There is room for four such autos, one behind the other, all of which all travel at the same speed. Each has a different dimension of time (which is space-like to us), and its own clock time. The twilights, nightside and dawnside phase rooms may form, as far as we can see, their own planetary bodies (indeed, their own solar systems and universes as well). Hence, one has a condition is which our planet has four times more surface area than we know of (which is attested to by the comments of yogis who say that we can only see a quarter of the universe)*. Each surface is a phase room and has a different dimension of time. All four phase rooms form greater materiality--but our experience is largely limited to the phenomena of one "side." A variation of the pyramid model can be found in the Upanishads, where the twilight side is designated as the astral plane, the nightside as the mental plane, etc. *Or, let's consider a comment by channel Jane Robert's voluble 'Seth' " is erroneous to think in terms of one physical universe. You now exist in four different ones at this moment." The Seth Material, 1972 paperback, p.120. An Idea About Time(2): Philip K. Dick. Noted science fiction writer Philip K. Dick, a number of whose novels and short stories have been made into the movies-- Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly, and others--believed that he interacted with a culture from a realm whose time ran at right angles (orthogonally) to our own physical clock time.Dick reportedly was able to see these individuals occasionally, much to their surprise.He thought they were engaged, among other things, in dropping chunks of their history into our time line. His experiences prompted him to take up writing stories about the world of the visitors. While we must take him at his word that his visitors did come from an orthogonal time realm, the idea of time that runs at right angles to our own, is what our interpretation of the pyramid model tells us.The twilightside, nightside, and dawnside phase rooms have orthogonal time with respect to us. In other words the four dimensions of A,B,C and D independently change from time to space and back to time endlessly. So the orthogonal time dimension of another room is a space dimension in our own dayside room. Yet, we have to remember that rather than four autonomous realms, the four phase rooms, are more like four distinct sides of the same materiality. Here is part of a sequence we will use in "Lost In The Shadows:" P>2>3>4>P>2>3>4>P> > The "P's" (for proton) designate our phase state.The sequence represents a clockwise path around the base of the pyramid model.This is the dimensional spin of the gauge pulse.A P is generated once each cycle, and a the sequence of these P's form the Bergsonian sequence that is our phase room. The P in the center of the sequence shows a specific instant, so, relative to us, three of those shown (to the right of P )are ahead of us in sequence and three behind or below us. Hence there are seven* planes altogether. One is advised to note that those above us are mirrored by those below, so one has a higher 2 twilight side or "Astral", and a lower 2 twilightside or "Astral," et cetera.But this is relative, for each of the other phase states has a similar sequence of its own. Now one might think, off-handedly, that these separate orthogonal times would quickly diverge from one another, but such is not the case. It is as if two automobiles are traveling down a highway, and one turns off onto a side road, and after an additional hour of traveling the cars are still the same distance apart! Let us attempt to explain this circumstance in this manner: suppose the two automobiles above are following one another around the same spiral ramp in a parking garage. Once every circuit each of the cars takes a photo of the outside through one of four window openings. The car

labeled 'N' takes a picture of the north openings, et cetera. After an hour of this (were parking garages that tall), the cars are still one behind the other, but there are four sequences of photos (which we call phase states) each of which shows a sequence in an entirely different dimension from the others. So the four phase rooms stay in step with one another. While the pyramid model is invaluable, it is only a 3+1 rendition of a four-dimensional perspective-- the base is obviously only two-dimensional. In subspace, there is no preferred direction--one can have gauge pulses traveling in any direction. The diagram below shows two time lines crossing one another at p . This is much simpler to understand if we go back to the idea of universal expansion. The real motion is not one-dimensional, but four-dimensional, overall, although each gauge pulse travels in only one direction at a time. Hence each P is a shell within a slightly larger 2 shell, which is contained within a 3 shell, and so on.
234P23 4 234P23 4 P = dayside (physical,


234P23 4 2 = twilight side (astral) 2 3 4 P 2 3 4 >>>> 3 = nightside (mental) 234P234 4 = dawnside ('etheric') 234P234 234P234 Orthogonal Sequences of phase states

Every phase room (a) sees itself as the center of universal expansion, and (b) sees itself as "normal". In a view from the twilight side, we are the dawnside. Since we assume that subspace is relatively uniform, a simple interpretation is that the relationships are relative. They are not "built into" space, but are characteristics of the gauge pulse locomoting through space, expanding and dimensionally spinning as it does. There may be a little confusion at this point regarding perspective. What we are calling the gauge pulse is not an independent entity. The motion belongs to the Brahman wave. We may visualize a smooth uniform wave, such as that on the surface of a still pond, but this wave is also quantized, because the disturbance must pass from molecule to molecule (which is what the pond consists of ). We don't see the individual motions of the molecules, but the effect of a large number of them moving in a pattern. In the formation of materiality, gravity and other forces cause large numbers of these pulses to clump together to form sub atomic particles, which themselves clump together. And so one has concentrations of materiality with seemingly empty space between them. But this is at the cost of having their time paths diverted, and so these particles must have relative motion to one another--spin, or vibration, for example. In attempting to visualize four-dimensional activity in 3+1 terms, it is necessary to cheat a little, or use several partial models. In this case we have used the visualization of expanding bubbles. But since the bubbles are packed together, there is no room for them to expand! That is why we have them nested in shells. Having said that, we can also use another partial model to describe them as well. That is to simply replace one of the spatial dimensions with the time dimension. In this case, there is simply a linear sequence. *Later we shall introduce a variation of this, which the reader need not be concerned about at this point, in which every other P is an N, making a larger organization of 15 great planes, as well as an organization of 7 planes.For the esoteric term "plane" one may read "phase room". IV. Phase Shifting. In phase-shifting, a physical body would, by a minimal advance or retreat in the time helix move from our phase room to one of the others. Conversely, an object in some other phase room

might be moved into ours.* What would it be like to experience such a shift? Off hand, we would think it would be like the story of someone who had unknowingly passed through a portal and found himself in a strange landscape.A denizen of that phase room, no doubt would think that he had suddenly popped into existence. While another phase room would be expected to have largely the same content as our phase room, it can also contain matter not present in ours (which is permanently out-of-phase with our matter). In phase shifting an object, we must remember that it is the individual units of matter that are individually shifted. This would seem to require a field to phase shift a complex object. Lets consider an object phase shifted from the ABC+D day side room to the BCD+A (the letter designations are only nominal) twilight side room. Our time dimension,D, becomes a space dimension in the BCD+A room, and one of our space dimensions (A) becomes their time dimension. The corners of the pyramid model designate light paths, so at a certain point, theoretically, the object could be in the "doorway" of both phase rooms at once. *We expect that someone may wonder about the rotation of the time path proposed in our discussion of the STR ,and its relation to phase shifting. Phase shifting (to another room) corresponds to a 90 degree rotation of the time path. Light. If one proposes that everything in our vicinity is expanding at the speed of light, then the problem of how light can possibly reach our eye at all, arises.We have taken pains to use the expression "the observed speed of light," for it would seem that light would actually have to have a speed of csqrt2. Thus, the light path could be thought of as the hypotenuse of a right angle triangle with equal legs of c. This being the case, then light must reach our eye at a 45 degree angle from the past, and be reflected at a 45 degree angle into the future. If the reception angle is less than 45 degrees, the light will be proportionately reddened. This relationship is shown by the pyramid model. If we draw the diagonals of the base through the corners, we will find they form angles of 135 degrees (90+45) with the sides. So the diagonals and their parallels show all of the incident and reflection angles. If our interpretation is correct, it means that light must travel between phase rooms. It also seems to indicate that any phase room can only received light emitted in itself or the phase room immediately ahead of it, which one can show for oneself with a simple diagram. In the case of our day side phase room, the next phase room ahead of us is the twilightside phase room. We could not see light emitted from the dawnside phase room immediately behind us. A visitor from that realm phase-shifting toward our room would thus appear black or shadowy, while a similar visitor from the twilight side might appear glowing. There is an interesting paranormal aspect to this interpretation. Some of the very large, nonterrestrial craft reported by witnesses (the Phoenix Lights is an example) are reported as an arrangement of visible lights attached to what seems to be a transparent framework through which one can see stars. This is exactly how a craft operating between the twilight side phase room and our dayside room ought to appear.We can not quite see the matter the ship is composed of, but we can see the emitted light. On the other hand, the black or shadowy apparitions --the shadow people--belong to the dawnside. Their light cannot reach us, nor can our light be reflected back to us.Note that if an object moved from (say) the abc+d phase room to the bcd+a phase room, dimensions b and c remain constant, so one might say that any two of the phase rooms have a two-dimensional (plane) interface with each other. Our conception of the nature of light frequencies also differs from the conventional view. Rather than separate frequencies, there is only a single disturbance, or wave. The frequency is not

in the wave itself, but of the gauge level at which the light producing event travels.Red light is emitted in the future of blue light, which suggests that it is more easily emitted, that is, it requires less energy. An implication of this is that the twilight side phase room is less energetic than ours, so the overall effect of time is to progress from in a 'hot' to a 'cooler' direction, and from a faster to a slower direction. So one might see why a photon's momentum ought to be described in terms of its intrinsic energy (times) the number of levels (frequency). But what is the photon? First of all, there is a 'nice' distinction to be made. What science measures, and hence considers to be the photon, is a most likely an effect created in subspace, not the entity creating the effect. The transmission speed of subspace has been set at c, and we will note that csqrt2 is the diagonal of a right angle triangle with equal legs of c. It would seem, that the photon must have two components, one in each phase room. A possible arrangemment would be two components, ninety degrees out of phase with one another. Let's use the ABC+D and BCD+A phases. Dimensions B and C remain space-like, while A and D are locked in a spin which alternately makes them time-like or space-like. Rather than traversing all four phase states, the pair spins between two of them. It is tempting to assign electromagnetic values to the four phases. If the dayside in taken to be electronegative, the nightside, 180 degrees ahead or behind can be taken as electropositive.This leaves the twilights and the dawnside as magnetic, 180 degrees opposed to one another, but 90 degrees displaced from the electric. This would seem to make the gauge pulse electromagnetic, with both tranverse and longitudinal components. If we substitue the value of csqrt^2 for "v" in the Newtonian expression, E=1/2m(v)^2, we obtain E=mc^2. Suppose that rather than light traveling through space to our eye, that our eye expands to encounter the light? This is an idea that keeps popping up in our development and keeps getting rejected because it presents difficulties,(e.g.) if the observer were watching light passing from a source to another location and thence to his eye. * * * * * *

I: Our Forgotten Heritage, The Shifting Crust Theory and the Great Flood, the Antediluvian World, Relics of the Past. II: The Tai-chi T'u, Shiva Natarajah, The Fylfot, The Hexagram. III. Beyond Occult Chemistry, A Neutron/Proton Alternation? IV. More on Phase Rooms. I. Our Forgotten Heritage. Modern man has likely existed 200,000 years, or more. What have we been doing with ourselves all of that time? The most ancient civilizations of the history books seemed to be just getting started about the end of the last ice age, 10 or 15 thousand years ago. The Bishop of Usher, a few centuries ago, derived his oft-quoted date of 4004 B.C. as the beginning of the world using Bible chronology. Either way, a long blank time is unaccounted for. Giorgio di Santillana, a professor of the history of science, spoke in Hamlet's Mill of the fallacy of thinking of cultural development as an extension of biological evolution. Our own culture has progressed from very primitive conditions to space travel (of a sort) in ten thousand years, during which minimal biological improvement has occurred. One plausible answer to the question posed is that at least one ancient civilization did exist, or

perhaps a series of them, which failed to continue.Many of the present cultures have legends of prehistoric greatness tens of thousands of years in the past.Perhaps we err in believing that a civilization, once established, will continue on in perpetuity rather than having a natural lifespan. We can easily see that the unit of physical life, the biological cell, must be finite in size--the three dimensions of space-- and bounded by a wall or containment, to function and survive. Yet we are apt to think that the time extension can be endless, as if life were no more than a mechanical repetition. When a civilization has sung its songs, thought its thoughts, lost its will to survive, and depleted its energy and karma, its day on stage is finished. But as we will see in the "Embedded Self," there will be another day after a night. Until then it rests in sleep. The civilization or era will be once again reborn on the next wave of time when it can hopefully have learned from the past and avoid some of the mistakes of its previous existence. The Shifting Crust Theory and the Great Flood. The name "Atlantis" is often used as a comprehensive term for the antediluvian world, which, legend says, sank into the ocean. Most of the ancient world does lie beneath the waves. For eighty to a hundred thousand years, in the last Interglacial period, the ocean levels were hundreds of feet lower than at present. If we take the civilization of the era as somewhat like our early history, cities and villages would have been founded at the mouths of rivers and at sea level.If we look at a relief globe of the Earth, we can see that quite a bit of land area of the continental shelves, now submerged, would have been above water. These include large areas in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, the North Sea, England, Ireland, France and Spain, the basin of the Mediterranean Sea, regions of the East China Sea, and western India off the mouth of the Indus river, to cite some of them. A number of relics of the past, and ancient habitations, have been found beneath sea level in oceans off coasts, and in the Mediterranean Sea. The melting of the ice sheets of the last glacial period did raise ocean levels hundreds of feet. But the conventional explanation of ice ages requires a slow decline of ocean levels as the glaciers and ice sheets expand, and a slow melt off. Perhaps this does not seem a violent enough scenario to account for wholesale cultural destruction. But there is another explanation which is considerably more promising in this regard. Engineer Hugh A. Brown, dissatisfied with the conventional theory that massive glaciers inched their way across the northern landscape during the ice ages, was taken by the idea that the buildup of ice and snow at the poles eventually caused the planet to up end "like an overloaded canoe" at times. Charles H. Hapgood, professor of the philosophy of science at a small New England college, thought Brown's "overturning canoe" concept would work with a few changes. In the selfpublished, The Earth's Shifting Crust, he proposed that the lithosphere, floating on the mantle, was continually moving as a unit, perhaps a few inches a year, in response to rotational imbalances. About 98 to 99 per cent of Earth's mass is contained in the mantle and core of the planet, so the crust is relatively little more than a shell. At certain periods, said Hapgood, the transition layers between the mantle and crust liquefied as a result of increased temperature and pressure and the motion could be much more pronounced. Albert Einstein, who wrote the Introduction to the book (a similar edition was put out as The Path of the Pole), was interested in the idea and said it merited further consideration. Rather than tipping over like a canoe, the Hapgood scenario would have the "skin" of the Earth slip a little, perhaps 10 to 15 degrees, the polar ice (of both poles) would move away from the poles to a warmer latitude, and begin to melt. The North pole would then occupy a new physical location, as a result of slippage, but the axis of rotation would be unchanged, and remain pointing in the direction of Polaris. But since the axis of Earth's rotation would pass through the crust in a different location, one could validly say that a "pole shift," had occurred.The North and South poles would be in different geophysical locations.

An ice age, in this scheme, begins with the slipping crust. The lower temperatures of the the ice age result from melting of massive sheets of ice, which might take millena to fully melt. Many of the giant mammals of the interglacial period died out, it has been said, at the end of the last ice age. In the Hapgood scheme, this means they died out at the time the crust slipped, for the ice age actually begins with the displacement and the melt off. Hence, in the last interglacial period, large areas of continental shelves, now submerged, would have been above water for tens of thousands of years. In the current view the subsidence of ocean level would have taken much longer as the evaporated water fell on land as snow and remained frozen.Hapgood's shifting crust theory is not essential to our thesis, but, we freely admit, fits it better than the current theory. The Biblical Flood may have been the retelling of the sudden inundation of the shores of the Black (Euxine) Sea when the rising Mediterranean broke through a land bridge, as has been proposed. Or it might have been the submergence of islands in the Mediterranean basin. But the real flood that destroyed the past was the rising waters of the oceans as the great ice sheets melted, slowly driving the residents of many ancient cities of the world to increasingly higher ground. The Antediluvian World. What would life have been like in those days? First of all, it would not been a civilization limited to one island, as in the myth of Atlantis. It would have been a number of separate nations and cultures which probably shared a common technology and science. A sea-faring culture slowly flooded out by rising water. Perhaps catastrophic episodes and continually rising sea levels forced evacuation of cities.Cayce has the Great Pyramid built by survivors from Atlantis. Zahi Hawass, Supreme Director of Egyptian Antiquities thinks the Great Pyramid was built by Egyptians--but perhaps the some of the survivors from Atlantis became the Egyptians. In the Americas, the Gulf of Mexico, including a large area off the Yucatan peninsula now submerged would have been above or at water level.In India, the Indus river, legendary home to India, would have emptied into the ocean through now submerged lands.Considerable areas on the south and west coasts of China, and much of Indo-China would have been above water. They had technology, but not really as we think of it.This was not a politically and socially democratic society, from what legends tells us.Very likely they were ruled by Kings and a priesthood.It was an earth-centered culture which explained things in naturalistic ways. It was a culture of skilled artisans and geniuses--Tesla would have been at home, there. Over a period of thousands of years, marvelous devices might have been created by trial and error. Colonel Don Bernardo O'Higgins, (a namesake of the 'Liberator' of Chile) related an account of how he and his squad, while serving as a hired soldiers for the French, entered a locally taboo cave in Indo-China and found glowing green tubes attached to the upper walls or ceiling of a passageway. One of the soldiers shot down a piece of the tubing and they found it to be a solid, glass-like material that continued to glow when broken into pieces.Other explorers, notably Colonel Percy Fawcett, have reported seeing these green, light emitting, tubes. The tubes may have been simply radium suspended in a glassy matrix, and although the Curies could have produced something like that at the end of the 19th Century, they would be a little too advanced to have been made in the last few thousand years. Relics of the Past. Much of the remaining, publicly acknowledged evidences of the antediluvian civilization, especially one of a kind manuscripts have been lost though natural destruction,by fire, rot, flood, and oblivion.But much of it was destroyed deliberately, often by dictators and monarchs.They may have claimed that their main reason was to destroy errors of the past, but more likely it was to destroy the opinion that the past had anything of social value. Some of the greatest destroyers

were religious fanatics set on eliminating perceived threats to their religion The Library of Alexandria estimated in the second century to contain a million volumes, was destroyed by the Arabs in the Seventh Century. The library of Carthage destroyed by the Romans said to have contained half a million volumes. European clergy destroyed historical records in the Americas, and their countrymen defaced monuments for the gold fittings. Heisenberg, in his autobiography, notes that if the word "fire" is replaced with the word "energy," most of the ideas of Heraclitus can be accepted as is by modern science. And what do we know of the ancient Greek mind? Dr. Hapgood, speaking in his area of professional expertise, tells us that many of the early philosophers are known to us only because Aristotle saw fit to mention them in criticizing their ideas. And what do we know of Aristotle? Much of it comes from notes made by his students. Monuments of stone are longer lasting, as are symbols with religious significance. And of course, the pyramid form was found throughout the world of antiquity. Two other ways of preserving the past is to incorporate knowledge into religious symbols or games. The main cultural traditions we have been able to draw upon are Egyptian, Chinese, and Indian (Vedic). Our thesis is that the symbols are the bits and pieces of a single unified cosmology which existed in the distant past on this planet. It is always the oldest representation which is significant and has provenance. Later versions are often made after the significance of the original arrangements was forgotten. But as useful as these symbols have been as guides and detail, it was not until we had reached a certain understanding in the development of the ideas herein presented, that we began to see, a little, what they were about. The we began to learn from them. Previous to this, the I Ching , Shiva, the pyramid form, and the Vedas were simply remnants of the past . A true understanding of these symbols has not been openly available for the last four or five thousand years. We can do little more here than to open the door. II. The Tai-chi T'u. The title "T'ai chi T'u, has been translated as, "Diagram of the Supreme Ultimate." The version we are familiar with consists of the famous yin-yang symbol surrounded by eight trigrams arranged in a circle. Part of this design, with four of the trigrams, can be found on the flag of South Korea. This assemblage--we have used a version taken from the design of an ink cake-- is enclosed in an octagon. According to the neo-Confucians, this is the ultimate statement about the universe. It is, in other words, the Monad. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that it fascinated one of the great monadologists, Gottfried von Leibniz. When Jesuits first brought knowledge of the I Ching back to Europe, Leibniz concluded that the trigrams represented a binary number system. An early arrangement of trigrams in circular form is attributed to Fu Hsi (2205?B.C.), which is the version that we find significant. There are four ways of reading the trigrams as binary numbers: letting either the solid or broken line represent the significant digits, and either reading in (downward) or out (upward). After a few trials we concluded that the intended method was reading down if free standing, or down and in, if in circular form. Either of the first two methods listed are valid, as we might expect--one can read the numbers as either yin or yang, and the sum of the two will be seven. We call the solid line interpretation the yang method, and the broken line approach, the yin method. The following should be adequate for those not familiar with this method of counting: Imagine that one has a file cabinet with three drawers. The drawers must be either full or empty. The top drawer has a capacity of one. the second drawer has a capacity of two, and the bottom drawer has a capacity of four. Thus if all the drawers are full, the trigram has a value of seven. If only the center drawer is full, it has a value of two. [This is a method well suited to a

calculating device such as an abacus]. _ _ ___ _ _ ___ _ _ _ _ ___ ___ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

If we apply the yang method to the Fu Hsi trigram wheel, we get the following sequence: [ the reader is asked to imagine that a circle is being portrayed] 7 6 5 4 0 Now it is obvious from the yin/yang symbol that a spin is indicated. The simplest interpretaion of what the wheel shows is a compound spin composed of two spins at right angles to one another. In the depiction of the trigram wheel above one can see that the sequence runs from 0 to 3, at which point it crosses over the center of the circle and runs clockwise from 4 to 7, at which point it crosses over the center again to 0. A rotating wheel turns clockwise if viewed from one side, and counterclockwise from the other side. So the diagram indicates a rotation of 180 degrees, then a flip to the opposite side (where it will be seen to rotate in the opposite direction), another rotation of 180 degrees and then another flip of 180 degrees. Hence there are 360 degrees of 'flip' and 360 degrees of rotation.We must think of the flips as a uniform rotations, not sudden changes. The proper way to construct the yin/yang symbol (we have concluded) is to draw two tangent circles of diameter r within a larger circle of diameter 2r, and to color in the small circles and their 'tails'. This power-of-two sequence is consistent with a binary interpretation. If the dots were just mentioned are considered to be an extension of the pattern, there will be four yet smaller circles of diameter r/2. But this is identical to the pattern of the self-enclosed wave. Since this version is over 4,000 years old, we think it likely that cultural corruption has replaced 'least' with 'youngest', and 'greatest' with 'first.' The symbol itself obviously indicate the spin of a duality, and this generates the kind of vibration called Simple Harmonic Motion, with frequencies differing from one another in octaves.* First Harmonic G Youngest (least) Son Second harmonic E F Second Son Fourth Harmonic A B C D First (greatest) Son frequency = 1 frequency = 2 frequency =4 1 3 2

The arrangement above will be more intelligible in conjunction with the table of conventional

There is an interesting relationship in the yin/yang symbol we shall refer to later. That is the length of the semicircle of the large circle from side-to-side is 1/2 pi 2r. But this is also the length of the path by the half circumferences of the smaller circles (1/2 pi r)+(1/2 pi r), from side to side. This relationship holds true for however small the division. We call this relationship Equivalent Paths, and it is important because it allows compound objects composed of differing gauge sizes to locomote without coming apart. *In some notations, the first harmonic (above) is called the fundamental, and the second harmonic, above, would be the fiirst harmonic. Shiva, King of the Dancers. There is a fascinating correspondence between the Hebrew Shiv' ah, which designates seven, and the Hindu god Shiva or Siva. Might Shiva have anything to do with seven? Most assuredly. He and a number of other gods of the Hindu pantheon have 1 head, 2 feet, and 4 arms. They have four arms (or eight, or sixteen) because what is being represented is a version of the monad, which we have referred to as the self-enclosed wave. When we think of the King of the Dancers, we may think of the famous brass statuette of Shiva dancing with his head sash flying. In our interpretation of his dance, his head is moving from-side-to-side at frequency = 1, he is moving from foot-to-foot at frequency = 2, and his arms are moving at frequency = 4. Not so evident is the circumstance that each hand can have two positions for frequency = 8, and then there are the wrist and finger positions as well of which could represent even more octaves.Our intuition tells us that the statuette is a surviving member of a set of sixty-four--there may be others extant which are unknown to the public. Each would show Shiva in a different position. It would be interesting to see Shiva Natarajah actually dance. What is additionally significant is that the inner arms are crossed. This is represented by the interchange of B and C below Youngest (least) Son F Second Son A C B D First (greatest) Son E This arrangement is shown in a number of Hindu and Buddhist Yanta's in the form of triangles within triangles. If G, A and D are the apices of an equilateral triangle and line EB is drawn parallel to GD, FC is drawn parallel to GA, and a third line is drawn parallel to AD where EB and FC cross, one will have a design with a total of seven triangles. It is also significant because the Vedic description of the four bodies of Brahma does not run earth, water, air, fire as one might expect, but earth, air, water, fire. If one consults the Fu Hsi trigram wheel above, one can see it is this sequence of double rotation that is being shown. 7 to 0 G

is earth to air, 0 to 3 is air to water, water crosses over to fire, and 4 to 7 is fire. One can represent Shiva with a seven-pointed star drawn with seven equidistant points on the circumference of a circle: 1G 7D 4A 6C 5B 2E 3F Shiva's Star This corresponds to: 1G 2E 3F 4A 6C 5B 7D cross-armed S.E.W.

Note that the clockwise star sequence of G-A-B-F-E-C-D-G corresponds to every other letter in the cross-armed S.E.W. in a counter-clockwise path. It takes two circuits to complete the sequence. The S.E.W. is a complex organization of harmonic sequences, which we call loops. The Fylfot (or Swastika). This symbol represents the four arms of Shiva.It is found in both a "left-handed" and a "righthanded" design (mirror images of one another), implying a clockwise or counter-clockwise spin.But as we note elsewhere, clockwise or counterclockwise is determined by the side it is viewed from. As symbol it is to be found in many cultures, including the Hindu and the American Indian, and it was used in days past as a "fylfot" in English windows to fill up space in the corners of windows (literally " fill foot.").The swastika design certainly indicates a wheel-like spin, and the four arms correspond to the pyramid model base of four sides.But another duality may be involved if we consider that the original design might have been three-dimensional.In that case one would have a pair of two-dimensional spins at right angles to one another. The Hexagram: A variant (cross-armed) presentation of: the seveness stacking pattern may also be displayed as the familiar hexagram, or six pointed star, which also can be laid out on the perimeter of a circle; the circle itself being G:
+E +1G +2E +4A +6C -5B -3F -7D -B. . . . . -D +A. . . . . +C -F

If the plus and minus signs are taken to be the positive and negative wave positions, then the previous form is only one of a sequence of eight:
G G E E F AC BD AC BD 1. 8. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. AC BD AC BD AC BD AC BD AC BD AC BD F E F E F E F E F E F E F G G G G G G

This is another version of the 720 degree spin. A remarkable discovery of planetary science, as we mention elsewhere, has been the hexagon formed at the north pole of the planet Saturn. Such standing wave patterns are common with sound vibrations.

III. Beyond Occult Chemistry. Beginning in 1895, two luminaries of the Theosophical Society in England, Charles Leadbeater and Annie Besant, used their clairvoyant abilities to practice a siddha of yoga described as 'making oneself infinitesimally small or as large as the Earth', to conduct an examination of the chemical elements. Their studies continued for years, and the results were published in various editions of Occult Chemistry. The smallest physical particle, from assemblages of which all of the chemical elements were compounded, was a spinning, heart-shaped entity made up of ten spiral lines of "force" tightly coiled .They named this the U.P.A., or ultimate physical atom. Each of the lines of force would form a circle if straightened out, and each was composed of an even tighter spiral of of 1680 lines and that of an even tighter spiral, so that if the entire structure were unraveled, one would have ". . . a huge circle of the tiniest imaginable dots like pearls threaded on an invisible thread." The number of dots was estimated at 49^6 (13,841,287,201). The U.P.A. existed in two chiral forms the clairvoyants called male and female, and which differed from one another in the direction the lines of force coiled. The entire chemical atom existed inside a bubble in a very dense substratum Leadbeater and Besant called the koilon. They reported that these bubbles seemed to be under a great deal of pressure. Various sub-assemblies of atoms were enclosed in yet other bubbles. The book went through a number of editions and remained little more than a curiosity until 1980 when a particle physicist named Stephen Phillips came upon a copy in a used book store. Phillips thought the U.P.A. might be a subquark. He renamed the U.P.A. the omegon (The ESP of Quarks, TPH,Wheaton,IL. 1980). One of the problems that he had with the Leadbeater-Besant diagrams was that the particles forming the atoms seemed to be double the number his calculations predicted. The element hydrogen, for example, was shown as having the appearance of a pair of triangles spinning around one another. The apices of the triangles seemed to be composed of what would seem to be quarks. Three omegons formed either a u or d quark, and three quarks formed either a proton or neutron depending on the ratio of u quarks to d quarks. Thus, the nucleus of the hydrogen atom, being a proton, should be composed of 9 omegons, but had been determined by the pair of investigators to have 18. The other atomic diagrams that Phillips looked at were also "doubled up." There were other uncertainties. The two clairvoyant's description of male and female U.P.A. was rooted in 19th Century physical concepts, and there was an ambiguity about what these terms meant. Magnetic as well as electrical differences were crucial from Phillip's quantum perspective. The doubling up in the hydrogen atom shows, in a naive interpretation, what one would take to be a neutron and a proton, whereas Phillips interprets them as a pair of protons which is consistent with his doubling up hypothesis. The doubling up also carries through to the chemical compounds. Leadbeater and Besant did see deuterium, which they called adyarium. The reader may also wish to consult "Occult Chemistry Re-Evaluated" by E. Lester Smith (TPH,Wheaton,IL. 1982) from which much of the information above was taken. A Neutron/Proton Alternation? To avoid misunderstanding we must state this: Dr.Phillips thought the doubled hydrogen nucleus was formed from two distinct atoms fused together by the "micro-psi." But we think, based on the substance of Phillip's interpretation of the U.P.A. as subquarks, the LeadbeaterBesant results are too uniform, and that there is something more than an observational

disturbance involved. We think that one of the hydrogen triangles is a proton and the other a neutron, and that the proton becomes a neutron every other cycle of Bergsonian time. The investigators simply saw a complete cycle in which the particle was both. Universal Gauge Expansion creates a condition in which the siddhi used --"making oneself infinitesmally small, or large as the Earth'" can be effected by a slight motion backward or forward in time. The past is smaller and the future is larger. If one could psychically project one's perception backward in time-- no more than a slight slowing would be necessary, then a common atom could easily be perceived as being large enough to examine in detail Most atoms have both protons and neutrons--hydrogen is the exception--and the greater number of common atoms have an equal number of protons and neutrons, isotopes being the largest exception. So for by far the largest number of atoms, an alternation of protons and neutrons would leave one with an identical atom. The isotopes, however would become different chemical elements. If there were a P/N alternation, atoms other than hydrogen would neccessitate a pair of particles 180 degrees out-of-phase with one another . But the total cycle here would require not 360 degrees, but 720 degrees to complete. We can show this as: P 2 3 4N 2 3 4 P 2 3 4 N N4 3 2 P 4 3 2 N 4 3 2 P The reader will note that the order of the sequence has been changed from top to bottom. We shall see the significance of the sequences shown shortly. The U.P.A. are mirror images of one another, and this suggests dimensional rotation. If the proton becomes a neutron and again a proton, all that seems to be required (using Phillip's idea of the U.P.A. as sub quarks), is that the U.P.A. change from male to female (or vice versa) once each cycle. This 2:1 ratio mirrors the 2:1:1/2 spin ratios assigned to elementary particles. The proton and neutron (in the contemporary physical view) have a 1/2 spin ratio, which means they need a 720 degree rotation to return to their beginning state. The spin ratios do mirror the 4:2:1 octave ratios of the Self-Enclosed Wave. But if the pair composing a P/N alternation are 180 degrees displaced from one another, one might expect that they would be opposites electrically or magnetically. But their range would be (apparently) from positive to neutral and back again.* It is well worth noting that Besant and Leadbeater saw bubbles within bubbles which suggests that the atom is composed of not just one but a number of differing gauge levels, which means that each has a different time and size value according to the Gauge Rule. And, it is also suggested that the atom consists of parts which are displaced in phase relative to one another. *We cannot see beyond this point at the present time. IV. More On Phase Rooms. In" Introducing Subspace," we used the pyramid model to show both gauge expansion and dimensional spin, as well as Bergsonian time. A pyramid model is described in the Upanishads which are commentaries on the Vedas. The sides of this pyramid are designated as earth, water, air, and fire, the four elements of the ancients. An additional interpretation is that earth represents the material plane, water the astral plane , air the mental plane, and fire the spiritual, causal, or etheric plane. Our language mirrors this for we speak of materiality as solid, emotions in terms of waves, oceans, and tears; we speak of castles in the air and heads in clouds, and fire has always been a religious symbol for the power of the spiritual. We shall let P represent our dayside plane, and N represent the dayside plane 360 degrees displaced from us. The particle we know as a proton is now a neutron.Between N's are the seven planes of materiality, in which each of the other three phase rooms occur twice, once above and

once below us. Thus, there is a high twilightside 2, (or Astral) and a low twilightside phase room. This represents something more than a difference in frequency. There is a limit to the number of planes (phase rooms) we can put into this scheme.The P preceding us, and following us (shown at the end of the lines in the diagram below, are our previous and following Bergsonian instants of time. There is no more room to include planes. So the total number, including our own phase room, is fifteen. We believe these are the "Fifteen Great Planes" of Buddhist lore. The two-dimensional diagram below could be expanded to be three-dimensional. The entire arrangement is complex. We wish to show the diagonal lines produced. In actuality, these relationships are not linear, but curved. In three dimensions we could see the P's, for example, formed a spherical shell nested between a 4 shell and a 2 shell. The Phase States appear as 'wave fronts' of an expanding wave which is exactly how they ought to appear.

I: The Individualities, Patterns, the Quality of number. II. The Symbol As the Address, Conception as Creation,The Black Bag Analogy. III. The Great Space of Merrell-Wolff, Private Space, Root Sentience, Local and Non Local Consciousness. Does the Drop Slip Into the Ocean or Vice-versa? IV.The Embedded Self, Brain/Heart Duality, The Three Selves, Identification. As an exercise in world building, let's start by imagining that there is no space, time, energy or matter. There is no universe, no galaxies, no solar system, and no planet Earth. Nor. In short, there is as close to nothing as our minds can reach. Now, let's set ourselves the task of creating the universe. What do we need (merely as an exercise of imagination) to make a universe out of this presumable nothingness? I. Individualities. Let us begin with a multitude of simple Individualities. They are individuals because they differ from one another in some way. If they did not, there would be only one, and the complex plurality of relations that we observe would be impossible to imagine.Their only requirements are (1) that we agree that they really exist for the sake of the exercise, (2) that they differ from one another in some way, which makes them a plurality of distinct entities, and (3) that they may, or may not, relate to one another. We are not putting them into a pre-existing framework of space and time, so we cannot endow them with simple location. What we know as things have simple location in space and time: they

are here, or there, and not all over. We can't say that about the individualities because they are non local. They are everywhere and nowhere, in the very beginning and the very end of not only things but consciousness itself. They are not compressed energy, or matter, nor even intelligence, for all these result from their relations with one another. To put this in another way, let us ask ourselves the question, "What is the basic, and the most fundamental state, of the root of all existence?" Our answer is that it is individuality, and that this individuality must be multiple, or plural. To make the discussion more interesting, we shall call one of this multitude Alpha. What holds true for Alpha holds true for any of the multitude which we shall call Alpha's siblings. Alpha can (a) relate, or (b) not relate to its siblings. When it does not relate, it disappears as far as they are concerned. It is as if Alpha never existed, for the siblings do not have a memory or the capacity to think. But we assume that Alpha retains its identity, or individuality, even when it is not relating.This is why we stipulated its 'real' existence independent of relation. Alpha's relations are of this sort: It is as if Alpha was a mirrored ball that reflected all of the other balls in (or on) its surface.Since Alpha doesn't reflect itself, it is not aware of itself. Rather, it perceives (if we may use that word) the reflections of its siblings as itself. This is a unique, subjective, perspective wherein Alpha cannot distinguish between the reflection, the thing reflected and the act of reflection. Alpha is completely occupied within itself as it has no other means of perception. Alpha's one real talent is the ability to relate or not relate. One should not presume volition, here. A copper wire has more intelligence than Alpha, and we might as well say that the wire can either conduct or not conduct a current. We might even go so far as to say the relation/not relation of Alpha is unwilled and unpatterned. If the Individualities continually related, there would be no universe, for they would be locked in a static, changeless, condition. If they never related, there could be no universe. If their rate of relation were entirely uniform, perhaps there could be no evolution. It would suit our purposes quite well, if Alpha and its siblings settled down to relating-not relating in a uniform frequency. What is Alpha's goal 'in life'? We shall suppose that it is to find fit. Perhaps if the individualities found a way to fit together as a unit, all existence will come to an end. But just as possibly, the goal might be a complexity (or simplicity) beyond our powers of conception. Alpha and its siblings are less intelligent than an electron, but : All the patterns of existence result from relations, and relations of relations, of Alpha and its siblings. The relations we have been describing must be very rapid. They must be higher than any attainable frequency. We can easily draw a parallel. If we call one of Alpha's relations its "second," then the ratio between it and one of our seconds is easily as great as the ratio between one of our seconds and the known age of the universe (10-16 billion years). Thus the individualities cycle through aeons of activity in the time it takes us to frame a single thought. Patterns. When one talks about "the Beginning," some listeners a imagine a completely dark, motionless, and featureless background as close to nothing as can be imagined (we did just that a few paragraphs ago). Into this 'nothing' something is placed, or created, or emerges. This perspective may be the result of the hard lives of our primitive ancestors. But we can as easily begin with everything, a condition so rich with potential that nothing predominates. All possibilities come into existence instantaneously as relations between Alpha and its siblings.In this case one doesn't need a creator: the desired pattern is chosen from infinite possibilites, and everything else is discarded. So something need not be created from nothing, something is what you have if its' anti-something is eliminated. We generally think to set something and nothing as polar opposites. But anti-something is the opposite of something, and nothing is their sum. Everything is no thing, for all things are not any

thing. Perhaps everything and something are the same coin seen from different perspectives. In slightly different words, nothing is a condition of everything in which any one thing has an equal probability of occurrence with any other thing. Hence, it is pattern-rich, in which no particular pattern stands out from the rest. It is also a condition in which all possible patterns can exist with equal probability of actuality. All patterns result from relations between Alpha and its siblings.But no time is required for this--they spring into being concomitantly with the Individualities. By all patterns we include every single detail of every possible universe: the whole ball of wax.But this is not the kind of existence we mean when we speak of existence. We will call the relations between the siblings unconditioned, in the sense that they are possibilities, only. Before one can meaningfully speak of probabilities, one must allow possibility in the fundamental sense. If we speak of zero probability we still posit the possibility or else we wouldn't be able to sustain the thought of probability.So we are really saying that all possibilities exist, but only as possibilities with zero probability of existence. They are not conditioned, or actualities. This conception may be easier to grasp if we think of a monitor or TV screen which has the capability (unconditioned) of display an infinite number of images (conditioned). Only a few of these images will ever be actualized. Only a few of the relations between Individualities will ever be actualized. If they all were exhibited at once there would only be a uniformly bright screen, or dark screen.In other words, nothing. Our view is that existence, or actuality, evolves and grows from relations between members of a plurality of the simplest of distinct entities. Specific patterns do not come into perceptible existence because a creator creates them, but because all of the competing patterns are discarded. Michelangelo is reported to have said that he didn't create a statue, he simply knocked away the stone that was concealing it. This is what we mean by "the great void which is unconditioned fullness." It is nothing with the potential for being anything. The Quality of Number. Many a child, when first introduced to numbers, wants to know what the numbers "mean." The number two, for example, is expected to have a meaning with respect to its twoness that is entirely distinct from its value as the sum of two, ones. It is the quality, and not the quantity, that the child is reaching for. But, we may well ask, how does two differ quantitatively from one? One signifies unity. But being and non being are a duality and not a oneness. So the unity here must be based on something other than being. Normally, one thinks of being as a condition with respect to other conditions, a relation in other words. Hence, we must think of unity--the fundamental oneness as an absolute, something that can exist independently of relation. This absolute we call individuality. Hence the relations of qualitative number are between individualities which differ from one another in a way that does not require relations between them. Like Alpha, it must be ultimately real and not derived. Two, on the other hand can signify relations between two onesses. It can denote being and non being as relations between two onenesses. We can see twonesses in terms of polar relationships. The duality of action and reaction is the cornerstone of Newtonian physics, and there is a duality of attraction in Newtonian gravitation. Generally, when we use the term "one" or "unity" we are using it in the sense of a condition that makes an otherwise unrelated group of objects a oneness, as in Cantor's description of a set: "a multitude we think to call one." Alpha unifies its siblings, for they are but reflections within itself. Alpha can relate to its siblings as one to a group, or one to one.

We ought to note here that the qualities of oneness, twoness, et cetera, form species of relations from which existence is built. They are not laws of nature, forces, or formulas, but are essential in conceiving of and in describing the world. They are more fundamental than human conception, however. Duality is a real condition of existence. Were Alpha simply a unity, it could not sustain both relation and non relation. We can however, think of Alpha as a threeness in which a superior unity relates a duality. This is a species of threeness we are quite interested in, because it will stack. The familiar yin-yang symbol of the I Ching is an apt pictorial representation of this symbol. Two circles of diameter r are drawn within a larger circle of diameter 2r, and the "tails" colored in. Each of the smaller circles of diameter r can act as the unifier of yet smaller circles of r/2, and so on, in the familiar sequence of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, et cetera. To construct a universe from relations between Individualities, we need a way to generate complex patterns. We take this way to be patterns of number (to echo the Pythagoreans), especially the small primes of one, two, three, and seven. By being divisible only by themselves and one, primes are individual patterns that one might venture to say have transcendent uniqueness. Some wish to see existence as a progression to a transcendent "oneness." But there is more than one kind of oneness. An absolute "oneness" would be, one would think, a featureless unity without parts.The best physical example of the first kind of oneness might be a black hole (at least as originally conceived of). All of the differences of material, patterns, individuality--the molecules, atoms, electrons, neutrons, and protons-- are compressed by an irresistible force into a completely uniform "stuff". In terms that we use, the archetypal black hole is pattern poor . It would a dedicated monist, indeed, who clung to this idea. The term as it is commonly used does not mean this, but rather a unified whole. A unified whole is a unity of commonalities. It is a unified pluralism, not a monism.The individualism which makes each member distinct is not unified--it remains plural.It is some commonality which unifies it. We don't see monism in nature. In an important way, there is no "nature" (or for that matter, "reality")except as an idea in our minds. If we look at the world impartially, where do we see the unity? There is no enforced order, outside directions, or guidance from a Great Central Authority to be perceived. Everything that can change changes in its own way without regard for other things. The spider does its "thing", the fly does its thing, and so on. Each is independent in action, and it is nigh impossible to see how any of that activity is directed toward creating the nominal unity called "nature." Yet, we can't deny that the result is appealing, or that in a deeper sense, it is part of what we are. While Alpha unifies the plurality of its siblings, it is also a member of the siblings, and with William James in mind, we might say a subset of itself. II. The Symbol As The Address. The universe, if it can be called that, of the Individualities, is completely non-local. That is, it does not have location in space and time because there is no space and time, as we know them, at that level. We must assume that there is no overall time, and no coordinate system in which the dimensions can be arranged to create simple location. What are we to make of this? If location cannot be specified then how can we locate anything? Since the Individualities are unique, there is only one Alpha: all of its siblings are different from it (in some unspecified way). Hence, an association or relation between a group of Individualities is also unique: there is only one of it in existence. There are an infinite number (we use the term in the ordinary and not necessarily mathematical way) of Individualities, an infinite number of pairs, of trinities, and so on. But each one of them is an individual. To put it in other words, there can be only one fiveness, or grouping with five numbers, as a fundamental pattern.

But each fivenesses is also unique in that it has a unique group of Individualities. If the group is not unique it is the same group. So simple number is one of the ways in which pattern emerges in relation between Individualities. Perhaps we might even imagine a number universe composed of relations of the same number. The "fiveness" universe would contain only relations involving the number five. To identify such a grouping, one might adopt a symbol of it. By going to the symbolic location, one would go to the actual location.Rather than distance in the form of distance and time, one expects "closeness" to be based on similarities. One has groupings based on similarities rather than physical distance as we are familiar with it, and the similarity might be identified by a symbolic representation: a pentagon might symbolize "fiveness".A major type of symbol, we think, is the picture or image. It is often reported in out-of-body accounts that one goes to a certain place by holding an image of it in one's mind--there is only one place that matches, or maps to the image. There is a way in which we can conceive of the universe as a localized phenomenon and where the Mankowski 3+1 system would seemingly apply. Once the time wave has passed, the might-have-beens are localized and one could apply a coordinate system of three spatial and one time dimension. Since expansion is a correlate of temporal lengthening, we possibly could locate any specific actuality as the intersection of three decreasing frequencies for any time value. This makes four dimensions of decreasing values. In such a coordinate system, four specific values should locate a world-minimum. Conception As Creation. There is a question of some standing that asks, "How do ideas get into our minds?" It might be replied that ideas do not get into our minds.The ideas in our minds are our own creations, even though they seem to be simply copies of very common ideas shared by millions. The moment of creation is when we 'get it.' In cartoons, it is the moment when the little light bulb lights above the head of the character. It is the moment of conception. Rather than the idea getting into our minds, say, like a downloaded file, we must carefully recreate the idea from other concepts and remembered perceptions, already in our minds. In creating new concepts we are literally building our mind itself. A important distinction is generally made between concepts and percepts. Our position (conception) is that percepts are base level conceptions, and the stuff from which more complex concepts are built. A perception is the consciousness of a pattern. The perception of light, for example, is not the receipt of something from outside our bodies to the inside, but a modulation of relations within the body. The light we are conscious of seeing is an event of our nervous system and brain. It is entirely contained within us.Like Alpha, we are confined to a black bag. It is the basic experience of life itself, especially that of childhood, which generates the 'stuff' from which organized conceptual structures are built. Or, to put it in a different way, merely being alive and conscious generates the material from which our minds are built. The Black Bag Analogy. Let's imagine that we are confined to a black bag of the sort that photographers use to to change film. It is completely dark inside, and our perceptions of the outside world are limited to events --bumps and sound vibrations--of the bag itself. Had we no knowledge of the outside world, we might imagine that the bag itself was the cause of these disturbances. Now, let us further imagine that rather than being a person within the bag, we are the bag, itself. All of the disturbances that affect the bag would seem to be coming from some unknown part of our own being. Like Alpha, we might find it difficult to distinguish between the self of the perception, the thing perceived, and the act of perception. Our root sentience reflects, as itself, every star, every elementary particle, and every creature past, present and future. It has access to everything, and is everywhere, fully containing what we

know as the universe. This perception is many times more complete than our conscious, waking, perception of our own body (!) It is an unavoidable condition of the pure subjectivity that is our true identity, that it is confined entirely to its perceptions, but these perceptions mirror all existence. What we know as the 'objective' viewpoint is a view compounded from agreed-upon subjective experiences.When the subject of physical materiality is concerned one might reasonably take the view that an event exists independently of one's perception of it.But in this case, the 'objective' event is actually the result of a single consciousness, the expansion of the Brahman Wave. Each bubble of subspace, also a self-enclosed wave, is a subjective world reflecting all other subjective worlds. III. The Great Space of Merrell-Wolff. In 1936, Franklin Merrell-Wolff, a Californian trained in mathematics and philosophy at Stanford and Harvard, Realized the state of Nirvana, the supreme goal of yoga. As he expressed in it Pathways Through To Space, at the culmination of many years of study and effort, his consciousness seemed to dwindle to a point, at which time a "turning about on the deepest seat of consciousness," occurred and he experienced his awareness expanding to fill, and be identical with, all of space. Thus the "Point-I" or relative consciousness became the "Space-I" of Nirvanic consciousness. He called the space he had become one with, "The Great Space." It has been called the Great Void, says Wolff, because to subject-object consciousness any description of it seems to be a description of nothing. The Great Space defies description. But it is not relative "world-containing" space. In The Philosophy of Consciousness-Without-An-Object he says, "To realize the Spatial Void is to awaken Nirvanic Consciousness . " [our true and dharmic state of being]. He discovered, to his surprise, a deeper state beyond Nirvana which he called "High Indifference," a state in which the "lonely self" merges with the "Other of the lonely self" and the two become one in "Consciousness-Without-An-Object-And-A-Subject". To paraphrase Wolff: IT is completely impersonal and supremely indifferent to agony, bliss, or any affective state. IT sustains and contains all consciousnesses, all universes, and all being. Beside IT is None Other. IT is transcendent to all human values, and desires. No choice that one can make could possibly be wrong, since the antithesis of that choice springs into concurrent being along with the choice. Wolff identified this unanticipated state of supreme equanimity as Shunyata, the Clear Light, and Tao. Of particular interest to us is his description of how knowledge is attained at these higher levels of consciousness. One knows by merging, or becoming one with that which is is known.Wolff calls this faculty, introception. This way of knowing was also reported by Plotinus, who is one of the handful of of humans who have reached "the farthest shore." Private Space. Merrell-Wolff reported that a key realization in the process that led to his Recognition was the inversion of the wonted idea of matter as substantial and space as a nothingness. His intuition was that the greatest concentration of mass he could think of (in 1936), the interior of a neutron star, was the greatest vacuum in existence, while space was substantial in its fullness. The idea that apparently empty space is matter at "a higher degree of vibration" is an ancient esoteric tenet. Bruno speaks of space as being " not matter, but what we think to call matter." In the 1920's, physicist Osborne Reynolds wrote several books developing his idea that matter was bubbles of nothing in a dense medium. Other conceptions (and there have been more than one, including, if we recall correctly, Richard Feynman), have likened matter to bubbles of

carbonation in a glass of beverage. The Void signified to the ancients an actuality of physical existence, something more than simply empty space. And it also signified a fundamental state of consciousness, and they likely considered both usages signified the same void, if the question arose at all. In this day and age we cannot gratuitously make that assumption. In the most abstract, ontological sense, the world of Alpha and its siblings would be the void. But Alpha's world can be only an exercise in imagination to us. The Great Void, and certainly the Great Space, in terms meaningful to the present discussion, must be what we have termed subspace, itself. But is it the Void of the Nirvanee? The question here is whether it is the reality or a reflection of the reality? Did the consciousness of Merrell-Wolff expand to fill the real space, or was it a private space that was a reflection of the real space? If we assign an individual dimension "Q" to each individual consciousness, and if we allow Q equivalence with common dimensionality, then the following arrangements occur: Spatial ABQ+D ACQ+D BCQ+D BCQ+A BDQ+A CDQ+A ACQ+B ADQ+B CDQ+B ABQ+C ADQ+C BDQ+C ABC+Q Temporal ABD+Q ACD+Q BCD+Q

Hence we have in the top chart, twelve 'private spaces' in which Q is one of the spatial dimensions, and in the lower chart the four phase rooms of materiality in which Q is the time dimension. What does this mean? Perhaps not anything. But plausibly it would be a perceptive framework that was unique to consciousness "Q" , its' own private world, so-to-speak. The assertion that consciousness creates its own version of reality in its perception is quite common, and our scheme requires that it do so. Merrell-Wolff speaks of his perception of a flow of consciousness from the viewer to the object viewed. We considered earlier that in a hyperspatial context the observer could imagine himself as the center of expansion, so that he could hypothetically adopt a viewpoint (slightly in the past) in which the object perceived expanded to encounter his eye, or his eye expanding (slightly in the future) to meet the object seen. Root Sentience. There can be no doubt that Wolff 's position is that consciousness creates the universe and hence the human organism is diametrically opposed to the classical materialist view of consciousness as a product of the human organism. He says in Aphorism 35: "Out of the Great Void which is Consciousness-without-an-object, the Universe is creatively projected." In the Spiritualist classic, The Unobstructed Universe, by Stewart White, "Betty," his departed wife speaking through a medium, repeatedly asserts that "Consciousness is the only reality." One hears this and similar statements again and again from mystics, but what is consciousness? And who is it that is asking the question? If it is consciousness itself, then may it be trying to find itself, outside of itself, as in the story of the man riding a donkey on a quest to find himself? We have put forth the idea that an eternal identity, an individuality that exists independently of any relations between it and other individualities, in its very perception mirrors the totality of existence. This is a purely subjective existence in which there is no so-called objective perspective, unless it is the perception of relations between two other entities. Our true identity is conceived to be a Self-Enclosed Wave. This entity is an eternal vibration

which has its own time and can exist independently of subspace. But it is of the same species as the vibrating bubbles of subspace itself. It is a monad, or oneness. We conceive this as the fundamental pattern of existence, forming space as well as materiality--in short, all things. Its sentience is the basic stuff of consciousness. But self-enclosed waves, while a unity, can vary in complexity. The 1-2-4-8-16 stacking pattern suggested by the I Ching applies. So one can have a sequence in which the S.E.W. evolves in complexity. As it does so, harmonic and other loops are created within it.This is dimensional complexity. A human monad is more complex than a subspace monad, but not so complex, one would think, as the Brahman wave. One might think of a loop as a closed circuit repeating a sequence over and over. The fundamental perception of the SEW we call root sentience.Like Alpha, it reflects the totality of existence. In one respect this means it is something like a hologram in which each part contains the whole.Like Alpha, the root sentience of the SEW, reflects within itself all other SEWs. Interestingly, Leibniz had his monad impressed with a representation of totality at its beginning. And like Alpha, root sentience identifies with this content and perceives it to be itself.But since this reflection encompasses all existence, root sentience conceives all of existence to be its self. But this leaves subject-object consciousness of our normal waking life unaccounted for. This consciousness is local rather than non local. It is normally confined to a body.Perhaps it represents a balancing act. Not only time-bound, but the very essence of conscious time. Thought has been called "psychological motion." We think that localized consciousness, the keen awareness of here and now, is identification with the moving locus of the time wave--the moment of action, of energy, when change occurs. More than anything else it is a consciousness of the now, a surfer, in analogy, who rides the perilous crest of the wave of time. Local and Non Local Consciousness. We must suppose that Nirvanic consciousness can be intelligently dealt with from subjectobject consciousness.Only a select few, of billions of human lives, have apparently reached this level of attainment. What chance does one of the multitude have, in the span of a short life, to reach the farthest shore? Is the great mass of humanity so much chaff to be winnowed out for the sake of finding a few precious grains of wheat? The answer generally given is that after an extended series of incarnations, the Atman is able to make the transition from subject-object to nirvanic consciousness. One of the cardinal rules of esoteric alchemy, which concentrates on the development of the higher bodies, is that in order to make gold, you must first have some real gold. In our mechanistic culture this becomes difficult, for assemble the real gold one must have faith, so that one can persevere in one's efforts. And it occurs to us that to have faith one must first have love. The emotional-spiritual axis is involved. Without this transverse dimension (the twilight sidedawnside axis) the physical-mental axis prevails. If one can find nothing else encouraging to say about religion, one can say that it fosters the dimension of faith and meaning which are essential to being more than an automaton. Subject-object consciousness is the consciousness of normal life. Consciousness, functioning from the perspective of a local phenomenon, the senses of the physical body (a 'black bag), is a consciousness trapped into three dimensions of space and a dimension of time.This is local consciousness (being limited to the sensations of the physical body which can be located in a 3+1 dimensional coordinate system)This is the consciousness of the vast majority of humans. In the Section "Paranormal", the author tells of an out-of-the-body experience. While technically non-physical, this experience was also subject-object, but in a different 'room'. It was a close analog of normal experience. What Merrell-Wolff, and a few others, say, is that they have reached a level of being which doesn't seem to make any sense to subject-object consciousness. A description of it seems to be a

description of Nothing: a great void. But to realize this void, this great space, as Wolff said, "Is to awaken Nirvanic Consciousness." What is being discussed, we think, is what one might justifiably call, "Non-local consciousness." It is not a consciousness limited to a place, or a time. We have seen that the universal gauge expansion can be seen as scalar, that is, of an 'infinite' number of time paths, and hyperdimensional.But this is the consciousness of the Brahman wave. Beyond this is boundless and uncharted subspace. Does the Drop Slip Into the Ocean, or Vice-versa? Some hold the view that the Nirvanee, as in Plotinus' analogy of a drop of water merging with the ocean, flows into and becomes part of a great Super-Intelligence which includes all beings and all consciousness. We suspect that this view is the result of human social experience--we can't tolerate our neighbor thinking himself above us, and we lack the nerve to assert that our perspective is the center of things. Merrell-Wolff tells us that a profound feeling of Divinity is an intimation of Nirvanic consciousness. The goal is to merge with this Divinity (not an independent entity but the "Other"of our "lonely" self) at which time the Divine and the lonely self merge into Consciousness-without-an-object-and-a subject, which is The All In All. Yet, even IT is growing and evolving. It is the Supreme Indifference of Tao, or The Farthest Shore, which makes the existence of the imperfect possible. If IT were not indifferent to imperfection, the latter could not exist, for IT is all powerful. In the view we are presenting, the Nirvanee flows into, joins, and becomes part of his (or her) deepest self which is always individualized, an immortal fragmentary part of the whole.But can the whole be known by one of its parts? Perhaps, like a hologram, the drop mirrors the ocean. And, being confined to its perceptions, this reflection is the only ocean it can know. A description of Nirvanic consciousness as "flowing," is mentioned several times by Wolff, and he humorously speaks of the confusion of one of his students at his description of its as "continually flowing" ...but not going anywhere." He also calls it the "true continuum", referring to subject-object consciousness as "granular. To refer to the pyramid model, the subject-object consciousness--our normal waking consciousness-- is time bound and a creature of sequential time, which is granular. Nirvanic consciousness, then,is free from this limitation. An interesting counter-view was contributed by a critic who described the state of "nirvanic" consciousness as being "smeared-out across the universe!" Wolff later talked of a group of self-realized individuals who retained physical form--a brotherhood, he called them--, that reached to the stars. IV. The Embedded Self. The popular, modern belief in reincarnation is that of a self traveling after death into a different physical body, usually of a future day and age. This idea is commonly called transmigration. Apparently, the essential identity remains the same--the same soul--which, suffering from amnesia due to a new, unprogrammed brain, continues on as a revised version. We should note that this view of reincarnation is personal survival constructed from a 3+1 perspective and consistent with many interpretations of the Bhagavad Gita.But one must be cautious of generalized conclusions. There are many channeled teachings which one might naively take to be reincarnation of the first kind which apply equally well to eternal re-ocurrence. "Eternal re-occurrence," (or, reincarnation of the second kind) , teaches that the same self, or essential identity, is born again as the same person in the same period of history. It is as if the individual lived his or her life over again.

This 'second kind' of reincarnation involves the idea of time as cyclical--the world progresses to its end and begins over again, replaying the same sequence, usually in "exact repetition." Exact repetition, which the Pythagoreans were said to have taught, may not mean what it seems to. This is an idea which is difficult to convey, and as someone once remarked, a few inaccuracies can save hours of explanation. The most effective way of expressing it is to begin with "exact repetition," which is easy enough to grasp, and then modify the original statement by saying that the repetition might not be "exact," and subject to some change the next time round. This keeps it from being a meaningless repetition, and make evolution or development possible, so the error of one trip need not be repeated. One might say that it is a different draft of the same novel. Plato speaks of cyclical time, the myth of the Phoenix bird symbolizes it, and the metaphysics of the Vedas are built on it. It was likely the common view of time in the ancient world. Perhaps it lost favor with the early Christians through the influence of such as Origen, to whom it implied that Salvation was not eternal. But, perhaps the primary reason is that the human expectations of the time looked upon cyclical time as a hopeless doctrine of the bitter past. We are presenting here an entirely distinct scheme of reincarnation, which although similar to the doctrine of eternal re- occurrence, is built on the concept of space as an enduring medium. This medium can be thought of for our purposes here, as being composed of densely packed, vibrating bubbles (of space and time). These bubbles are capable of vibrating faster --in which case they get smaller--or slower--in which case they get larger. So one has a medium into which a pattern can be impressed or embossed. We shall use the term embedded to designate the condition of our mortal self, that is, as it were, pasted like a butterfly into a scrapbook. Not just our physical bodies, but all of physical existence is embossed into subspace.This implies that the past still exists, as a place, and the future exists, as a place, in subspace. This is the content of time. What isn't accounted for is the motion of time from one instant to the next. This motion results from a wave, the crest of which temporarily creates a zone of action we call the 'present'. There is not a single wave crest, but a continuous wave with one crest (and trough) after the other. Each of these crests creates a universe. It might be said that our real future exists in terms of probability, in which there is a continuous fluctuation of possibilities. The now is when the abstract becomes concrete, or real, and part of that reality is simple location. Our normal waking consciousness is locked to a single wave crest which moves through the content of time, creating what we are conscious of as our personal identity. But immediately ahead of us, as well as behind us, are other 'selves' which, to themselves, are as real as we think ourselves to be. A self of ours is currently experiencing the future. But it is not the future we shall experience. At a different time (so to speak) this future self has experienced, or will experience, similar events to those that we are currently experiencing in our lives. In living and making decisions, this 'self' which is ahead of us, modified the content of the embedded self, and we must face the results of that change. We are making changes which a following self will have to deal with. This, we believe, is what Karma is. It is the fall-out of how we handled situations the previous trips through. This talk of multiple selves may prompt the reader to ask, " If this is so, then what or who am I?" The answer is, "I am all of these selves, and yet, none of them." Perhaps we might care to think of our real self as an actor playing our multiple versions of the same character. Actually, the individual selves do not have an independent existence, it is the real self playing a role.Perhaps, we might want to call the real self the Soul, the Atman, or the Spirit-Soul. But the real self is not the embedded self. Perhaps it would be clearer if we used the term 'embedded selves' to designate all of the past and future selves of the conventional concept of reincarnation.

But this does not rule out, in essence, the common idea of an entirely different life in a different place and time. Bur rather than the transmigration of a soul, we see it as an oversoul projecting an entirely different soul into an embedded environment. Like Sisyphus, in Greek myth, who endlessly and laboriously rolls a rock up a mountain only to have it get away from him short of the goal and roll back down, each successive lifetime, by and large, is something of a failure, for it ends in disintegration.But it might be countered that eventual success makes up for the failures. However, each lifetime is, in terms of the embedded self, simply a day in the real life of the real self, which does not disintegrate. To succeed at personal survival, it is necessary to avoid the process of disintegration. The the higher bodies must be integrated into a unity capable of sustaining itself. Once this occurs, the individual is Liberated from the endless cycle of reembodiment as an embedded self. Brain/Heart Duality.

Water, emotions "Astral" (twilightside) BCD+A

What concerns us here is the fundamental duality of intellect and emotion, between feeling and thought. These compose a pair of dualities: EarthAir and Water-Fire. In terms of human psychology, mental (intellect) is appropriately paired with physical materiality. Physical doesn't fit with emotional or 'spiritual', and mental and emotional are not a felicitous pair. On the other hand, emotional and spiritual are complements. The elements of each pair--physical and mental, for example--are 180 degrees out-of-phase with one another and hence diametric opposites, representing positive and negative. Earlier we used the ABC+D notation to represent the four phase rooms. The fylfot symbolizes this, showing dayside and nightside linked together,and twilightside and dawnside linked together. But the two (right hand and left hand) forms suggests a pair of such spins, and the inevitable duality. We might notice that the grouping actually breaks up into a pair of doubles, to wit: ABC+D ABD+C ACD+B BCD+A Note that the first pair shares two common space-like dimensions, A and C. The other two, D and B, have swapped space and time roles with one another. In the remaining pair, it is D and B which are the common space-like dimensions, while A and C have swapped off. We are going to expand this slightly to show positive and negative aspects: ABC+D ACD+B ABC -D ACD -B BCD+A ABD+C BCD -A ABD -C

The plus and minus signs signify direction of motion. Thus, +A,-A,+A,-A, et cetera, represents the back and forward motion of simple harmonic motion--we might think of a pendulum's swing.

In other words, B and D add up to describe a spin. The same holds true for the pair A and C. What one has, then is a pair of dimensions spinning around another pair of dimensions. But this is what is described by the trigram wheel of the I Ching.* 7 6 3 5 4 0 1 2

To refresh one's memory, the above wheel is constructed by converting the eight binary trigrams on the trigram wheel (an abbreviated version, with four of the trigrams, can be found on the flag of South Korea) to arabic numbers as one can see above. In the center of the arrangement is the yin-yang symbol, which symbolizes spin, among other things. Our interpretation of the above arrangement might be likened to a spinning disc which has a second spin at right angles to the first.The above arrangement , going counterclockwise, rotates 180 degrees, flips over (180 degrees), rotates another 180 degrees and flips over again to complete the cycle. If a spinning disc flips over it is seen to spin in the opposite direction. It is noteworthy that, with respect to the three-dimensionality attributed to normal matter, that a spin,also rotating at right angles to the spin, if rapid enough, will simulate a three-dimensional body** *see "3. Lost In Shadows" We recall reading a comment by Bertrand Russell that a fourdimensional representation involved such a double spin. **An idea to be encountered in the writings of Dewey B.Larson. The Three Selves. A Hawaiin museum curator, William Tufts Brigham, became fascinated, in the 19th century, by the healing methods of the kahuna priests/sorcerers of the islands. He collected information by questioning, but was never invited to share their inner beliefs. One of his students, Max Freedom Long, in The Huna Code in Religions, describes what information Brigham had been able to assemble over a period of forty years.The Hawaiians had brought with them from Polynesia knowledge of paranormal firewlking, healing, control of weather, and the ability to alter the future. According to Long, the kahunas divided the human personality into a low self, a middle self, and a high self . Below the low self were animal souls, and above the higher self were the amakua, or high self gods ( the high self is also an amakua). The three selves, recounts Long, reincarnate together as a group for a certain number of incarnations, after which the middle self becomes a new high self, the low self becomes a new middle self, and a new low self is chosen. In becoming a high self, the middle self joins with its "soul mate" middle self and becomes "The utterly trustworthy parental pair." Hence, each high self has a pair of middle selves to bring along. Each of the three selves has its own aka or "shadowy body." During life, the low self (responsible for the emotions) and middle self live in the physical body, and their aka encloses it. The high self lives in its "halo" shadowy body above the physical. Each of the three selves has its own grade of mana, or vital force. The low self uses its mana as a mesmeric force, the middle self uses its grade as "will", and the high self uses mana generated by the body which it changes into a grade it can use.This mana force is used to create the future of man as patterns which slowly materialize into actual events. Brigham saw in the totem poles of New Zealand and the American Pacific Northwest, a

representation of this trinity of selves. When a new lower self is not available, an animal soul, or self, is chosen*. Some approaches, such theosophy, consider an animal soul in advancing to human does so as a "group soul." The group soul at minimum has two complementary souls that become one. The kahuna belief, as conceived by Brigham, has the new high self formed from a group soul of two middle selves. One presumes, if the pattern continues, that two higher selves join to form the next higher self, and so on. "The tree of life is upside down," one may hear a Hindu, say, and that is an apt description of the soul ladder. This "bottom, up" development is in contradistinction to a "top, down" division, but both are examples of the 1-2-4-8..., doubling and halving sequence of Chinese ontology. Extended, it is a creation that evolves from the bottom upward, unlike the account of Biblical and Christian myth in which a perfect and all powerful Unity creates from the top down. Hence all life is in a process of development, not unlike the growth of a tree in which the merest of twigs becomes a small branch, which eventually grows in size to become a substantial limb which is larger in size than the original trunk of the sapling it sprang from. An unspoken theme of this ancient approach is that there is only one species of consciousness which is differentiated by form and complexity. Some have seen a similarity between the kahuna "ladder" deduced by Brigham and the idea of " The Great Chain of Being," which two scholars, Arthur O. Lovejoy and E.M.W. Tillyard, saw in certain medieval and Renaissance documents. Simplistically, the 'Great Chain' was conceived as a hierarchal structure of being, from God to granite.But, as its' proponents say, it is a chain and not a ladder. * As a counter-point: when this subject was introduced in a channeling session, the plainspoken analogy given was: "That makes as much sense as building a brick "outhouse", and then tearing it down to use the bricks in a mansion!" Identification. Some years ago we made the acquaintance of C. Arthur Pickering, who as a yet recuperating veteran of the Pacific War, underwent Dianetic processesing. In what might be called an expansion of awareness, Pickering reached an understanding of what he termed "Identification." He discovered that almost everything he had done in his life was through a surrogate personality copied from an individuals he had come into contact with as an infant, mainly his parents.* Pickering thought that identifications were built on repressed emotion and muscle tension, and held in place by breathing patterns. We inherit genetic material biologically but also acquire emotional and attitudinal templates which guide our growth and ensure cultural uniformity. To make a break with the past we must change these emotionally fixed attitudes.What we are suggesting here, bearing what has been said in "The symbol as the address," is that this bonding identification ties us to the object (in this case our parents). One of Mr. Pickering's oft repeated sayings, was that without a physical change there is no lasting spiritual, or soul, change. *This brings to mind the concept of imprinting used by biologists--the way animals learn to survive in the world by participating in hunting and feeding with their parents. * * * * * *

Five: Gauge Effects

I. Scale Rooms. While we have so far discussed phase worlds, we have not really touched upon scale rooms, the kind of worlds Boscovich imagined.Perhaps there are universes in which the galaxies are all the size of a grain of sand, or in which there are planets the size of solar systems.But the kind of scale worlds we have in mind are those which are contemporaneous with us. The dayside, twilightside, etc. phase rooms we have discussed are not really like the heavenly worlds described in Near Death Experiences--they are more like extensions of our dayside world, or the world of Philip K. Dick's visitors from orthogonal time. We expect that the twilightside, nightside and dawnside phase rooms would look quite a bit like our own world. One of the criteria for being a room is that the individual finds himself in a recognizable environment, which suggests that matter, and three dimensions of space and a dimension of time exist there.For the Heavenly worlds, a different kind of room is needed. A scale room differs from our own, not so much by phase as by scale, or size.It would be a world that was noticeably larger or smaller in size than our own. But there are, or would be, notable differences. For one thing, possibly a different species of materiality--not quite the same kind of atoms that we know. The phase rooms we have described so far can be considered to be different aspects of our materiality. What we are proposing here is a different scale of materiality. A second difference is that of time. If larger in size--hence in our future--they will have a slower time, or longer seconds. Time will run more slowly there, relative to our world. This doesn't mean that the rate of time would seem to be speeded up or slowed down while there.The difference would be between that time and normal earth time. The gauge rule allows us to predict that in a room of a scale much larger than ours, a minute of their time might correspond to many minutes as measured by our time. Because of the gauge rule, again, the Heavenly worlds would seem to exist, well, in the heavens, and are more suitable for the realms of heavenly Near Death Experiences. However, we feel that N.D.E.'s must be treated with caution.Some consider the after death sojourn as an intense hallucination, in which there is no reference to the physical body which moderated the strength and duration of emotional episodes and fixations during life. Smaller scale rooms would be expected to exist below the surface of the earth.Time would run fast there, compared to ours. One of our minutes might be many minutes there, relatively ( which is not good news for those who feel they may be headed in that direction!). But since these rooms could be considered to coexist in the same space as the universe we know, we would be expanding through a region of subspace the heavenly realms had recently vacated. This is not as much of a problem as it might seem, because the lower worlds, faster and more energetic would be located where the subsurface temperatures would be considerably warmer, and our surface would be located--one would think--in their atmosphere. The Heavenly worlds might exist quite high above our heads, where the effects of their motion and so on, would be masked by events, such as electromagnetic phenomena in our upper atmosphere. It seems likely that scale rooms would form their own universes. A species of materiality which did not interact with our own might occupy the same space as we do, much like an electrical caable can transmit a number of different frequencies. And each level would have its own rate of time. Thus, one might have more than one planet Earth with different rates of rotation. We can observe patterns of scale difference in the universe as a whole. Atom-sized phenomena occur on a very small, fast, scale; there is a larger and slower scale for the solar system; and our galaxy is a very large scale. If the universe, as a whole, exists as a single organic pattern (which seems to be implicit in the idea of universal gauge expansion), then it would have an even larger size and slower time. We ought to mention that what we see in a galaxy, a solar system, is not the gauge pattern of that scale, but physical atoms of a similar gauge to our own. We don't see the gauge pattern directly, what we see is the atomic material collected by forces of that pattern over

aeon's. The gauge pattern, and gravity create the form of the galaxy. But, true to the Boscovichian concept, this scale relationship is relative. As a result of universal expansion, the past is to be seen as very rapid and fast, and the future as very slow and very large.The gauge rule implies that if our gauge scale varies, we continue to measure c at the determined value. But such is not the case in comparing the scale of our time and space to a differing gauge scale. The speed of light within small gauge scale must be much faster than c, and internal forces apparently greater. Worlds much larger or smaller scale than our own is one of the oldest themes of science fiction, and is used in the Men In Black movies. At the ending of the first film, an alien child is shown playing with balls, each of contains an encapsulated universe. We are not familiar with an esoteric or Vedic account that indicates gauge expansion, although there are some hints as in Hansa, the black swan associated with creation of the universe. Swans, geese and other birds make an enveloping motion with their wings when attempting to become airborne [in our own observations], and this reminds one a little of an expansion. In her magnum opus, Helena Blavatsky makes a brilliant derivation of Brahma[n] from the root brih-: to expand, but she later ruined her insight be concluding that which is infinite cannot expand, and hence the expansion could not be physical.We would say with respect to this, that it is subspace that is 'infinite', the universe is a finite event within it. II. Standing Gauge Waves. The paranormal and psychic aspect suggests that some additional form of energy (or force) has been overlooked by our current view.Ancient works speak of sound as the creative force, e.g., "In the beginning was the word," and the yogi belief in "Aum" as the sound of creation.And what would magic be without the power of sound? The sun and stars would certainly be expected to be intense generators of gauge wave radiation, which has some aspects of normal sound--expand and contract in size.That the planets emit sounds was a doctrine of the ancient Pythagoreans. Some structures on this planet ought to resonate to and emit low frequency sounds. Our own planet, if we take the diameter as a wavelength, would resonate to and emit a tone of about 23.25 Hz (as well as overtones). In the current view, sound is a compression wave through a medium, and the sounds of Earth travel no further than the atmosphere. Space is considered to be silent, sound-wise. In the view we are presenting, space itself is a medium, and by space we are referring to the true space, not relative space-time. Compression waves, which are longitudinal, can be transmitted through such a medium, as well as transverse waves. Some years ago, Hermann Weyl, a notable 20th century mathematician, proposed that longitudinal waves could travel through space by altering the metric, or gauge of space-time. Experimenters could find no evidence to support this proposal, and Weyl's theory languished in the anteroom of physics along with a multitude of other ideas. There is an excellent reason why such waves would be difficult to detect: the measuring apparatus would be affected by the waves themselves. Gauge waves would be unique. Like sound, in many ways, but traveling at the speed of light. But they would also have, it would seem a transverse component like electromagnetic waves. Various designs of detectors are being, and have been, built to detect gravitational waves. In one of them, pressure sensitive measuring devices were fixed around the circumference of a cylinder of pure aluminum. This effort seems to have had largely null results. Such an arrangement might be able to detect gauge waves. But again, the dilemma is that as the gauge wave expands the cylinder, the net of detectors also expands, and when the cylinder contracts, so does the arrangement of detection devices. More recently, gravity wave detectors also capable (according to its builders) of detecting what we have called gauge waves have been constructed, again to look for gravity waves. But unlike the proposed gravity waves, gauge waves might be expected to span an entire

spectrum of frequencies. If detected, these "cosmic sound" waves would be important. It is possible that not all physical materials expand and contract to the same degree. They might also make the "tractor" and "repulsor" beams so dear to hearts the science fiction writers a reality. Now it might be properly asked how such waves would perceived as by the human organism. Perhaps they would look like heat waves coming off of a hot surface--a blacktopped road in summer, for example--in which different densities of air refract light differently.Perhaps they would present a shimmering effect, distortion of image or object, as well as a chromatic distortion. If in the audible range they would evidence a sound. They would also, possibly, produce a psychological effect on those individuals within range, or heat and chill effects. Scientists at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen (Thomas Heimburg and Andrew D. Jackson) several years ago proposed that nerve impulses, rather than being electrical signals, were sound pulses they named "solitons." Gauge waves are not electromagnetic waves, nor sound waves. But like sound, they could form standing waves on a surface. German physicist Ernst Chladni studied sound standing waves using sand covered metal plates vibrated by a violin bow. As the waves reflected from the boundary of the plate inverted phase, they produced patterns in the sand where their crests and troughs intersected. Hans Jenny, a later researcher, called the study of such forms, Cymatics.Some beautiful and elaborate patterns have been produced by sound standing waves. These include geometric designs similar to biological forms. And, they might play a significant role in biological pattern formation. With gauge waves, electrical differentials might be created between anti nodes, which might serve as internal guides for cell structure formation. The Trough-Bulge Theory. We propose that the subspace of the galaxy is radially fluted by standing gauge waves, and that the solar system periodically passes through areas of differing gauge on its passage around the galactic center, which affects the sun and the geology and ecology of the planets. But such waves form a spectra of many octaves, and we fully expect that each planetary body radiates gauge waves based on its resonant frequency. The Pythagoreans believed that each planet emitted its unique sound. That the Earth has a secondary gravitational field is not a new idea, but it is one that we can address as a result of the implication of gauge waves resonate to the diameter and shape of the Earth, which might be expected to form antinodes on the surface. These would be regions in which the normal gravity of the planet would be slightly greater or less than elsewhere. We propose that there is an (annular) ring--or trough--with less gravity at about 30 degrees N. Latitude, and a similar ring -- or bulge--at about 30 degrees S. Latitude. Such gravitational standing waves might create the pear-shape of the Earth. One can produce this shape by impressing a shallow sine wave of wave length equal to the Earth's diameter on a circle. It is complete to a "stem" at top, and a "dimple" at the bottom. The 'trough' at 30 degrees North is a ring of less than normal gravity. Consequently, one can expect that the ocean level would be lower than it would be otherwise, for water would flow to areas of higher gravity. The trough would seem to be more of a flattening than a perceptible depression. Geographically, 30 degrees North passes a few miles to the south of Lake Ponchartrain in New Orleans, Northern Florida, through Cairo and the top edge of Kuwait, and just to the South of Japan. Were this vibrational pattern to change those localities would be faced with significantly higher ocean levels. The 'bulge' at about 30 degrees South Latitude is less threatening should it disappear, for ocean levels would drop leaving some localities high and dry. Porta Allegro, Uruguay, the coasts of midsouthern Australia and the Northern tip of New Zeeland among the places affected. If the diameter of the earth is taken as its wavelength, one obtains frequency, as we have said, of about 23.25 Hz. But different frequencies, either harmonics or resonances with gauge wave originating

in the cosmos would create a more complex patterning. Because they have a longitudinal component, gauge waves as we conceive of them will form standing waves not only on the surface of things, but in the fabric of subspace itself. They are similar, it seems to us, to proposed gravity waves. However, gauge waves are not limited to a single frequency, but would be of many octaves of frequency. Hence there might be standing waves of very complex patterns on the surface of planets. The hexagon at Saturn's North pole would seem to be an excellent example of a standing gauge wave pattern. III. Spin and Rotation. When we think of ancient Greece, we may think of classical marble architecture, and perhaps the geometry of Euclid comes to mind. These share a commonality: they are static, and unmoving. The Eastern mindset, however, is dynamic , transient, and moving. One is the cold, eternal, frozen beauty of the Parthenon, the other the dance of Shiva. The mood of De Broglie's wave mechanics, and quantum physics, is more that of the dynamic Shiva than the classic, eternally frozen, Parthenon. The mood of Classical physics is more like the Parthenon than Shiva. In De Broglie's wave mechanics, spin is an aspect of wave behavior--but the problem is that the quantum approach is limited to small scale phenomena. The classical Newtonian approach, limited to large scale phenomena, sees spin and rotations as accidental. It is something that happens. One would think that it ought to be rare, but it is are not. Spins, or rotations, are encountered on many scales in the universe. We encounter it inthe motion of the galaxies, planetary systems, planet-moon systems.* We see natural rotations in hurricanes, waterspouts, vortices, and in atomic-size phenomena.And, there is also handedness in organic molecules, which is a spin of sorts.. *As we were finishing this section, a study by a group of European astronomers made the news. They concluded that the eleven brightest dwarf galaxies attached to the Milky Way Galaxy are arranged in a disc shape (like the planets of our solar system) and rotate in the same direction as the parent galaxy. [Drs.Kroupa, Metz, Hensler,Theis, and Jerjen :Eurek Alert.200905-07 ] A Left-Hand Sequence. The English mathematician,Lewis Carroll, achieved popular fame with his book Through The Looking Glass, Or Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the children's classic in which Alice steps through a mirror into a wonderland where the left and right of normal everyday objects are reversed. The mirror (chiral) image of a right-hand spin is a left-hand spin. But does the mirror really "reverse" things? If we stand before a mirror (and have the fortitude to look at ourselves in plain view), we see that top is reflected as top, our right hand is reflected directly in front of its chiral self, and the same for the left hand. The appearance is not the same if we faced our physical double, for then our right hand would be on the left. So where does the reversal come in, if at all? Suppose we painted a design--the word "ME" will do--on a pane of glass. If we now turned the pane over we would see the expected reversed image of the reverse side. If we held it up in front of the mirror with the "ME" facing us, we would see a reversed reflection, left-to-right. But we will notice the reflection is right side up. If we cheat a little and hold the pane close to our chest and glance down to see what at what the mirror is reflecting we find that it is the already reversed image that is being faithfully reflected. The reversal doesn't occur in the mirror-- we are simply seeing the side of things that we don't normally see.

A good example of this is watching the wheels of the autos passing.If they are passing from left to right, we will see the top of the tires moving forward and the bottom of the tires moving backward--of course. But the wheels will be seen to rotate clockwise. If we had viewed the traffic from the opposite side of the street, we would have observed the wheels rotating counter-clockwise. All this is obvious, one might say. The point we are attempting to underline here, though, is that we are observing the very same rotation from a different perspective, 180 degrees displaced from the first. The observer's perspective determines the handedness. The pyramid model that we have used so far has handedness. The rule of thumb for handedness is to point the thumb of the right hand in the direction of "up" or the direction of motion. The fingers of the right hand will then curl counterclockwise if the spin is right handed. If the directon is clockwise, then it is a left hand spin, or, the direction the fingers will curl if the left hand is used. If the "up" position is the direction of motion from top to bottom, then the pyramid model, as we have used it, is right handed (thumb pointing downward). But if the left hand is used, with thumb pointing downward, a counterclockwise spin is indicated. Our reason for all of this, is that in esoteric thought, there is asserted to be an important difference between the "right hand " path and the "left hand" paths. One will also find references to "the downward pointing pyramid," (which would be left handed). If the U.P.A. of Leadbeater and Besant is undergoing a dimensional spin between chiral images of itself, then we have a pair of helices, one right-handed, the other, left-handed, bound together in a double helix ( not the double helix of D.N.A., which is a pair of right-handed helices). In atomic terms, this means that protons become neutrons, and vice versa, which means that except for such exceptions as hydrogen and isotopes the element remains the same.But this implies that there is a counter-clockwise spin to the pyramid model as well as the clockwise spin we have considered. A fundamental part of the Chinese viewpoint is the complimentary duality, yin and yang, mother and father, or , Spirit and Matter. The Secret Doctrine, quoting Stanza III, paragraph10, of The Book of Dyzan, gives the esoteric view of this duality succinctly: "Father-Mother spin a web [the Universe--HPB], whose upper end is fastened to the Spirit -the light of the one darkness --and the lower one to its [the Spirit's--HPB] shadowy end, Matter; and this web is the Universe spun out of the two substances made in one, which is Spirit-Matter. [Father-Mother--HPB]. Blavatsky says of the Caduceus, which is often depicted in the hand of Hermes, messenger of the gods, : "The two serpents, the ever-living and its illusion [spirit and matter--H.P.B.], whose two heads grow from the the one head between the wings (of the swan, Hansa), descend along the trunk (of Asvattha, the tree of Life and Being) interlaced in close embrace. The two tails join on earth [The manifested universe--H.P.B.]into one, and this is the great illusion, O Lanoo!" [The Solar Theory and the Elements, The Secret Doctrine] If our normal world is considered a P world ( a positive proton), then there seems to be an equal opportunity for an N world (neutral proton or neutron relative to us) intertwined with it. Hence, it implies that there is a sequence of chiral universes intertwined with ours. Anecdotally, it is said that during an audience, Pope John-Paul II was heard to remark that in the view of the Church, the self continues to exist, after death, as a "mirror image" of the self of physical life. Certain individuals in O.B.E. experiences report that they have noted a reversal of left and right handedness in the excursion. A bandage on their right hand, for example, would be perceived to be on the left hand.

"The Ambidextrous Universe" by Martin Gardner is an informative discussion of handedness and chirality. Mystery Spots. Certain spots on the Earth's surface exhibit effects which might be anti nodes of standing gauge waves. Two of the best known are at Gold Hill, Oregon, known as the "Oregon Vortex" and the "Santa Cruz (California) Mystery Spot." But these are by no means all: they occur worldwide. A few hundred feet in size, they exhibit gravity effects and an inexplicable change in size from one side of a "line of demarcation" to the other.Because of their paranormal aspects a myth often arises around them (abetted by Indian traditions about their mysterious properties), and they become a subject of interest. If one finds a "mystery spot" in a major theme park, however, one can very well disregard paranormal aspects--they cannot be moved around at will.Effects similar to those of the real spots are simulated by artfully contrived structures that confuse the customer's sense of level, and make it seem that a mysterious force changes their height and causes balls to roll uphill. The authentic mystery spots seem to have (1) a gravitational effect, (2) a time affecting effect and a spin effect--for example a puff of smoke will spiral as in a vortex, and (3) a variable size effect at the very well defined edge of the spot. All three of these, in our conception, are associated with a standing gauge wave. What we have called the "gauge rule," change in length/change in size equals a constant, or "the bigger the clock, the slower it runs." Increase in size and a slowdown in time by about the same percentage. If an actual scale and time effect is involved, we expect that the this rule must apply (it means the speed of light remains a constant), for if it did not light frequencies within and without would shift, and a chromatic effect would be noticeable and reported. Inasmuch as this isn't mentioned, we might expect the speed of light is the same inside the region of influence as outside it. Two ordinary sounds (f1 and f2) can exhibit audible beats if sounded together, the formula for this being either f1-f2 = f3, or f1+f2 =f4, where f3 and f4 are the beat frequencies. An illustration of wave interference is the strobe effect, in which a strobe flashing at exactly the rate of spin of a rotating wheel, can "freeze" the wheel's spin and make it seem to stand still. By slightly varying the strobes frequency, the "stationary" wheel can be made to move either clockwise or counterclockwise. In four dimensions, the time dimension can be conceived as a 3-d scale expansion. We have said earlier that in universal gauge expansion all objects and the space between them are expanding at the speed of light.The basic waveform of phenomena (in our view) the self-enclosed wave. So if an f2 frequency is just slightly less than the f1 frequency, one might have a 3-d beat effect which has a specific size of a mystery spot, say, of less than a hundred meters in diameter. And the time within this spherical area, or field, will proportionately slow down. Such spots have been named vortices, because the rate of spin increases toward center. Also, the Oregon vortex seems to indicate the angle of Earth's geophysical pole to the plane of the ecliptic. *In researching "Mystery Spots", we recall coming across an odd item to the effect that gold seems to be more affected by such locations than other materials(?) IV. Portals. The term "portal," is often used to designate a doorway between worlds. There is a body of myth, considered by Di Santillana in Hamlet's Mill, in which the entranceway between worlds is a vortex or whirlpool. Spinning fields such as those said to be attempted in certain Kabbalistic practices,(such as

Merkaba effects), can be considered to be rotations of the material of the higher bodies. What we have to add, here, is that by manipulating frequencies, the effect is not simply linear as in normal sound, but multi-dimensional. In other words, effects involving spin can be produced, a three-dimensional rather than one dimensional beat frequency effect. Interferences between the higher bodies may be the explanation for the chakras. UFO Phenomena. Time distortion--the phenomenon of missing time is something else, again-- is often reported in encounters with UFO's. What seems like a few moments on the inside is quite long on the outside. It also has been reported that the inside of the ship was much larger than the outside. Spoon Bending. In spoon bending, a piece of tableware is said to bend by being rubbed on one side. Like the bimetallic thermometer strip, if the rate of expansion of the rubbed side of the spoon were changed, gauge expansion would cause bending. This phenomenon otherwise defies explanation in conventional terms. Looming. A rather rare phenomenon associated with the Arctic is called looming. Distant objects seem larger than they are. We have read two different accounts of looming, the most notable being that of a hunter who followed what he thought was a polar bear for miles, but when he finally closed on it, he discovered it was not a bear, but a marmot! While one needs to consider that the lack of topographical features in an Arctic landscape may make the estimation of size difficult, it is hardly a satisfying explanation. A second instance of looming involved a description of UFO behavior. When UFOs are seen approaching the viewer, they may seem in one instant to be a considerable distance away, and the next, much closer, as if they had skipped the intervening distance. * * * * * *

Remote Viewing, Psi, Channeling, Shape-shifting, Possession. VII. A Personal Experience, Some Comments, Where was It?, Locomotion. A look at some reported phenomena, some of which are mediumistic(involving human agency) and some of which seem to be natural (not involving human agency).To avoid having to validate every event cited, we treat each as an example of a group. I. Transmutations. As a generality, the esoteric doctrine of the higher bodies seems to include: (1) That the human organism is composed of more than one kind of materiality, (2) Higher bodies exist as atomic and/or molecular material surrounding the physical body, and (3) that the processes of life transmute physical elements into the substance of the higher bodies,a process which can be accelerated. In the Upanishads, the twilightside and the nightside of the pyramid model are labeled astral,

and mental. In theosophy, which draws on Vedantic and Buddhist sources, one encounters the assertion that at death there is an interlude on both the astral and mental planes, a paradise--at least as a very lucid dream-- and the two higher bodies, first the astral and then the mental, are shed in turn. At the beginning of the next incarnation a new emotional and mental body, or the rudiments of them, are assembled. Esoteric teacher Georges Gurdjieff taught, that from the air we breathe, food, and "impressions", the student of his method could produce "hydrogens" essential to esoteric work. In a similar vein, the Polynesian kahunas of Hawaii, according to William Tufts Brigham, were able to generate a seed-like energy called mana with which they were able to work miracles, heal the sick, and change the future. A small number of biochemists believe the processes of life in plants and animals can transmute one chemical element into another, the most notable being Louis Kervran. If this is so, a critic might respond, what is the purpose of fertilizer? But Man's way is not Nature's way. It is a well known historically, that a few years of intensive cultivation of a single crop can deplete the soil, especially a grass like wheat which does not fix nitrogen, the main fertilizer. Yet the same prairie soil that was ruined by wheat, had grown luxurious stands of tall grass, some as tall as a man on horseback, year after year. In a similar vein, and often mentioned in conjunction with biological transmutation, is cold fusion.The main barrier facing biological transmutation and cold fusion seems to be the electrical repulsion between the atoms, which keeps the nuclei separate. Phase shifting one of the atoms to a magnetic phase would reduce or eliminate this barrier. The art of the sorcerer and the kahuna, seems to be to phase shift material slightly backward in time to a higher potential energy state. II. Spontaneous Human Combustion. SHC, or Spontaneous Human Combustion, has been reported for centuries.A normal fire is often associated with it. One of the better known cases is that of Mary Reeser, a Florida widow, whose body was so completely consumed by a mysterious burning that only part of the spine and charred liver , a shrunken skull, and an otherwise undamaged foot enclosed in a black satin slipper remained.The chair in which she had been sitting was completely destroyed, and a circular hole had been burned in a carpet laid over a concrete slab floor. The case was investigated by Dr.Wilton Krogman, a pathologist of note who was vacationing in the St. Petersburg area at the time, at the request of the police. He could find no cause for the occurrence of Mrs. Reeser's death. After years of consideration, he finally concluded that the widow's body had been burned elsewhere and the remains returned. In some cases where SHC has been observed occurring, a bluish flame of no great intensity has been seen flickering on, or just above, the surface of the body. It has been reported that water not only fails to extinguish the blaze but seems to add to its intensity. The above clues suggest that SHC is not an oxidation, but a chemical reduction, which is necessarily endothermic since the body is largely water. Atoms of water, thus, must be disassociated into hydrogen and oxygen, which are then ignited outside the region of influence by a flame. Mrs. Reeser used matches,and in some other cases the victim was found near an open fire. The "greasy soot" reported found on the walls and ceiling of the efficiency apartment was likely atomic carbon, and it was the burning of the released hydrogen which caused the heat in the apartment. The above explanation is fairly obvious. What is not obvious is the source of energy needed to reduce the body to atoms. Krogman, who had watched cadavers burn in normal fires in crematoriums under a variety of conditions, said that only in temperatures in excess of 3,000 degrees F. had he seen bones melt.He also noted that he had never observed skulls shrink during

cremation. Oddly enough, the shrinking of skulls was reported in the great Peshtigo forest fire of 1871. But while crematoriums depend largely on convection, a forest fire can generate gigawatt's of infrared radiation.Some survivors of the fire told of victims burning to ashes in a few minutes, unlike the several hours required for a cremation. The Peshtigo fire destroyed nearly every structure in the Wisconsin town but one --a building being built that was,largely, a framework of two-by-four studs and rafters. The wildfire burned not only tree stumps, but their roots in the ground. On the other hand, it left a field of cornstalks (which one might think would be the first to burn) standing. Two-by-fours and cornstalks are alike in a certain way: they are long and thin and have a small cross section. This is quite important in radiated heat energy which low enough in frequency to penetrate into the radiated object, while convection is limited to a molecular bombardment the surface. The fire, so to speak, pumps an extraordinary amount of infrared energy into a body, a building, or a tree stump continually. One of the stories told by survivers of this great fire--which occured on the same day as the fire in Chicago--was by a man who stopped his horsedrawn wagon to remove a tree trunk obstructing the road. When he had done so and turned back he found that the horse and his wife were both dead, and a few minutes later had been reduced to ashes. But we are looking in the wrong direction. There was no evidence of an external radiation source. The doorknob of Mrs Reeser's apartment was hot-- a discovery which prompted painters to call the manager--and the plastic electrical outlet covers were melted above a certain level in the living room, and the walls were coated with soot, but aside from the widow's body, the chair and the hole in the carpet, little else was damaged. So a slow, prolonged burning (and here we have the recombination of the separated hydrogen and oxygen, ignited by Mrs. Reeser's cigarette lighter, in mind) occured. It was not intense enough to start a house fire, and it was slow enough to allow the heat to accumulate at the top of the room--hence the electrical outlet covers melted at the top but not the bottom. The real endothermic destruction of the body did not necessarily emit any heat in itself. The destruction of the chair and the carpet was by this same endothermic field, not regular fire (in which case the apartment probably would have burned). Certain aspects of SHC stand out. Victims are often alcoholics, they do not seem to be in pain in the few cases that have been witnessed, and, there do not seem to be any cases of animals so perishing. There is also a hint of CO poisoning. A number of cases of SHC have occurred in automobiles. In one case of partial SHC the victim was in the process of committing suicide in his garage by funneling the auto exhaust into the interior. The circular hole in the carpet and the destruction of the chair suggests that while the body may have been the focus, an effect was produced a limited distance beyond it. Neighbors reported that Mrs. Reeser had the habit of sitting in the chair with her stiff left leg extended on a hassock, and this may be why the foot and slipper survived.* In the esoteric tradition, the physical body is surrounded by an energy field which clairvoyants often describe as ovoid in shape. Such an energy field, as a hypothesis, would supply the energy that produced the phenomena associated with SHC. The lack of animal victims, and the poisoning aspects, suggest that trauma to the brain is involved, and further suggests that the brain may be a regulating factor between the body and such a proposed energy field. The energy field would supply the energy to break the electrical bond that holds molecules together, the gas atoms rising and being recombined by normal burning outside the field. An ovoid or circular region of burning, sometimes cited as an evidence of a field, is also the shape of the envelope of the higher bodies. Since an energy source is required, the field must emanate from the dawnside as the so-called astral, or twilightside energies would be too weak.

The brain is involved in this process, as there are evidences of alcoholism and carbon monoxide poisonings in many cases. Thus, SHC may be an unfortunate accident. We think that the mysterious energy involved was transmuted during life by the victim to form a reservoir of potential energy which must be inherently unstable and which potentially can be controlled by the brain. *Although dated, Vincent H. Gaddis' "Mysterious Fires and Lights", documents the Reeser case, et al. III. Poltergeist, Apparitions. Poltergeist, in our view, is a mediumistic phenomenon, in which the unwitting medium is the principle character, the individual that the events seem to center around, who is usually a child or young woman.What the medium, in such a case does, is to generate an intermediate 'substance' that allows a discarnate or non human entity to have a physical effect on matter.At the end of this section I tell of a personal O.B.E. During the exteriorization, I recall repeatedly trying to flip the lever on the bathroom light switch, but my finger seemed to pass through it. The energy effects of poltergeist, aside from the stories of Stephen King, are usually no greater than that of a healthy man. The famous falling stones which seem to materialize from thin air and fall to the floor of a room; or stones which are thrown against the side of a house with no thrower to be apparent, upon examination turn out to be ordinary fieldstones from the vicinity. Such phenomena are an excellent example of phase shifting, the unworldy thrower of stones phase shifting the object to his own phase room where it becomes intangible to the physical world, but which returns to common materiality once it has left that entities' possession. A phenomenon of similar nature, apports, are objects which appear from nowhere during seances. Now theoretically, that is with reference to the pyramid model, we would think that this activity must take place from the dawnside as it has a higher energy level, and a slightly faster time. We are increasingly led to believe that discarnates reside, not in an astral (or twilight side) phase room, but in the past of our day side, in the dawnside room. For another thing, photo's of apparitions often shown them smaller than we might expect. And a notable number of apparitions seem to show themselves as shadow persons who seem as silhouettes to the perceiver. We can only see light from phase room directly following ours, we believe. An object in the doorway between the dawn side and the dayside would appear black to us. We cannot see their light, nor can our light reflect back to us. The have been several reports of large, triangular shaped UFO's similar to the "Phoenix lights," in which the ship seems to be invisible--the stars are seen through it--but its lights are visible. This would be an excellent example of such a vehicle operating in the doorway between the physical and the twilight side. We can see their emitted light (they don't see our, though) although the object emitting it was not entirely phase shifted into our room. One might use the same explanation for the various 'mystery lights' seen in certain locations. Electronic Voice Phenomenon, (EVP). Some paranormal researchers believe that an ordinary tape recorder can record voices of departed persons. The author pursued this subject long enough to satisfy himself that there was an effect. But there can be a direct communication without a recorder. Many mornings ago, as I awakened in a closed porch, I heard, very clearly, the question, "Can you hear me?" Although I immediately recognized the voice as that of a departed friend, I dressed as rapidly as possible and make a circuit of the house to determine the sound did not originate from the outside. The voice was conversational in tone, though slightly higher in pitch than the remembered voice.But it was a sound which seemed to emanate from a nearby location, and not within my head.Yet it was not a sound that likely would have been physically heard, although one cannot be completely certain of that.

We are taking the approach that what is called telepathy is non local, and consists of some other person "thinking" inside one's own mind. This makes the transmission of a signal unneccessary. A direct communication, such as the porch experience, likely involves the transmission of a signal, which may be a gauge wave--a transmitted ripple in the fabric of spacetime, if one will. EVP is a direct communication transduced by a mechanical device. It sometimes has the timbre, as others have noted, of sounding as if it were compounded from background noise. The effect, if the result of gauge waves, might occur at various places in the tape recorder circuit, from the microphone to the speaker, by causing a fluctuation in impedence or capacitance. Electromagnetic effects are well attested in poltergeist, and there is an account-we think cited by Gaddis--of the inmates of a New York State prison who seem to have acquired a static electrical charge (they had difficulty in throwing a crumpled ball of paper away) which was blamed on their having consumed spoiled fish. IV. Levitation and mass. The majority of Saints did not exhibit paranormal abilities--they simply led saintly lives. Yet, in the common mind, Saints are persons who manifest miracles and other-worldly phenomena. But many cultures have a shamanic tradition and a familiarity with magic.The yogi and the sorcerer are trained, but there have been individuals with rare abilities--"wild talents," Charles Forte called them, who could produce electrical effects, start fires with their breaths, levitate, or heal by a touch. The human organism seems to be a marvelous machine that is, for the vast majority, not turned on. But there are occasional flickerings of its potential. One of the miraculous doings of Saints, is levitation. Joseph of Cupertino was probably the most accomplished with (we believe) forty attested risings. Joseph was a simple man without ambition, much to the dismay of his superiors who saw him in a more prominent role. In this trait he was in saintly contrast to such superstars as Anthony of Padua, who displayed a multitude of gifts, levitation and bilocation among them, as well as being a preacher that crowds traveled miles to hear. But what seems to be miraculous to the religious mind--which tends to see paranormal happenings as evidence of either Divine or Demonic powers--may be thought of as psychic abilities to others. Levitation has been attributed to practitioners of yoga, Buddhism, Spiritualism and Spiritism, few of whom think of it as a suitable goal of spiritual attainment. And, we fully believe, that it can be technically achieved. The biologist and writer, Ivan Sanderson, tells of seeing pebbles mysteriously floating above the floor of a volcanic crater on Bali in his book, Green Silence. In various paranormal accounts of levitation, there is no evidence of the kind of force needed to raise a physical body into the air by means currently known. There is, however, (1) the possibility that a higher body is perceived as the physical. An excellent example of this is Anthony of Padua being seen in two different locations at the same time.Hence, it might be the higher body that was seen to levitate. Or, (2) the current concept of mass and gravity is not correct. If there is no gravitational radiation between two massy bodies as we have suggested, then changing an aspect of one of the bodies (such as the proverbial change of frequency) would render that body weightless and possibly without inertia.Even though all of the physical bodies of any size that we know about have mass, it is still an empiric observation projected as a rule. The description 'floating' is often used in descriptions of levitation. This suggests that inertial as well as gravitational mass is reduced. As a matter of fact, we can't recall an instance in which only one kind of mass (inertial or gravitational) seemed to be involved by itself in a phenomenon. Apparently, the Principle of Equivalence holds in paranormal events. Obviously, if a physical object were phase shifted to another room, it would disappear from

ours, which means that from our perspective the mass, and consequently its energy would simply vanish.Hence its energy would not be conserved (from our perspective). But one might counter with the proposal that if the object were removed from our environment to a different location, its mass could also be said to have vanished. The mass would not go out of existence, but no longer be perceptible from our environment. In other words, it would be 'potential' rather than 'kinetic'. UFO Mass Reduction Effect. One of the oft reported aspects of the motions of small disc's (commented on by Whitley Strieber) is that they seem to slide through the atmosphere, rather than fly. Let's suppose that we have a typical UFO disc-shaped craft such as that reported at Fatima,(an account is presented below). A technology capable of producing a one-dimensional mass reduction or negation along the vertical axis means the craft could rise vertically with very little effort, but would have inertial and gravitational mass horizontally.At a given altitude, the disc might be tipped slightly and allowed to slide downward gravitationally to build up speed. If the edge of the craft is then tipped up, the craft might skip, like a flat stone on the surface of a lake, back up to the original altitude. Rotation, very commonly reported, as in the Fatima occurrence, might be necessary for stability, although some accounts call to mind the behaviour of a gyroscope. In Communion, Strieber relates the anecdote, that in attempting to place the recovered Roswell disc on a flatbed truck, the soldiers found they could lift it vertically very easily, but could not move it horizontally. They finally settled on the procedure of raising it into the air and allowing it to slide forward, eventually reaching a location where the truck could be moved under it. V. Fatima. At about noon, on October 13, 1917, near the hamlet of Fatima, Portugal, a crowd of about 100,000 witnessed an extraordinary event. Of that multitude, only a few (as far as we know) -newspaper reporters and a college professor among them-- looked carefully and left a record of what they saw. Below is a partial description of the event as witnessed by Almeida Garrett of the University of Coimbra. The setting is this: a multitude of the curious and the devout have gathered in a pasture near a remote hamlet to witness an appearance of the Virgin Mary promised by Lucy dos Santos who claimed that Mary had been appearing to her and her two younger cousins as they tended sheep. It had rained earlier, and the sky was overcast and the sun occluded. The crowd, most of whom had spent the night outdoors in damp clothing, expectantly awaited the hour of noon. Garrett says: " The sun had broken jubilantly through the thick layer of clouds just a few moments before. "It was shining clearly and intensely. I turned to this magnet that was drawing all eyes. "It looked to me as a luminous and brilliant disc, with a bright well-defined rim. "It did not hurt the eyes. The comparison (which I heard while still at Fatima) with a disc of dull silver did not seem right to me. The color was brighter, far more active and richer than dull silver, with the tinted luster of the orient of a pearl. "Nor did it resemble the moon on a clear night. Everyone saw and felt that it was a body with life. I was not spheric like the moon, neither did it have an equal tonality of color. It looked like a small, brightly polished, wheel of iridescent mother-of-pearl. "It could not be taken for the sun as seen through a fog. There was no fog at the time

(the rain and fog had stopped). The sun was not opaque, veiled, or diffused. It gave light and heat and was brilliantly outlined by a beveled rim. "The sky was banked with light clouds, patched with blue here and there. Sometimes the sun stood out alone in rifts of clear sky. The clouds scuttled along from west to east without dimming the sun. They gave the impression of passing behind it, while white puffs gliding sometimes in front of the sun seemed to take on the color of rose or a delicate blue. "It was wonderful that all this time it was possible for us to look at the sun, a blaze of light and blinding heat, without pain to the eyes or blinding of the retina. This phenomenon must have lasted about ten minutes, except for two interruptions when the sun darted forth its more refulgent, lightning-like, rays which forced us to look away. "The sun had an eccentricity of movement. It was not the scintillation of a celestial body at its highest power. It was rotating upon itself with exceedingly great speed. Suddenly the people broke out with a cry of extreme anguish. The sun, still rotating, had loosed itself from the skies and came hurtling toward the earth. This huge, fiery, millstone threatened to crush us with its weight. It was a dreadful sensation." Reporters for the big city dailies described the event in the same vein. O Dia noted, "The sun seemed veiled with a transparent gauze to enable us to look at it without difficulty. The grayish tint of mother-of-pearl began changing as if into a shining silver disc, that was growing slowly, until it broke through the clouds. And the silvery sun, still shrouded with the same lightness of gauze, was seen to rotate and wander within the circle of the receded clouds!" O Seculare commented: "The sun called to mind a plate of dull silver. It could be stared at without the least effort." We might comment. first of all, that simple rationality demands that the real sun was hidden by clouds at the time of the apparition. A bright object was seen which was mistaken for the sun, except for the two instances (which we have italicized), when the real sun broke momentarily through the clouds. There was the additional comment by a farmer who had seen some of this a little further away who said that the 'sun' had looked like a "dirty snowball". The event at Fatima is truly remarkable. It is not only the first mass UFO sighting of modern times, but perhaps the outstanding paranormal event of history in terms of the number of people witnessing a single happening ,even though there have been more conservative estimates of the crowd's size put forth. Most of the pious saw a miraculous event of the sun dancing in the sky ( the 'dance' per se can be attributed to a "zig-zag" motion as the craft descended, perhaps the famous 'falling leaf' descent pattern of classic UFO sightings). None of the observers thought they were seeing a machine, albeit a very sophisticated machine. Even the professional observers could not quite bring themselves to say that it was not the sun they were seeing, although Garrett noted the clouds "gave the impression" of passing behind the object. And yet even the reporters and Garrett, apparently, did not see it all. Lucy later described a much more detailed account involving apparitions of Mary. Professor Garrett's account of the Fatima visitation comes from Fr.John Di Marchi, an American Catholic priest who went to Portugal years after the event to interview witnesses, especially Sister Maria Lucia, who, as a ten-year-old country girl was the principal character of the Fatima visitations. Di Marchi published his findings in a little booklet, millions of which were distributed free. Synchronistically enough, the Imprimatur of the booklet--which was apparently reissued as "What Really Happened At Fatima"-- was granted in 1947, a major year for Ufology. . Social Engineering.

It seems to be the most ignorant and vulnerable that are chosen to receive such messages. An incident similar to the apparitions at Fatima was that of Bernadette Soubirous, of Lourdes France, in the previous century. While gathering firewood, Bernadette saw the image of a "beautiful lady" in a small grotto near a stream. Like Lucy, Bernadette had spent the year before tending sheep in the mountains, and spoke a dialect unintelligible to most townfolk. Bernadette told her parish priest that the lady had told her, "I am the Immaculate Conception," and the priest corrected her by saying that "the immaculate conception" was a thing and not a person. Bernadette's vision was hers alone, as no one else could see the lady. By the same token, though, little Francesco could not see the lady appearing over the holmoak bush until he had said a decade of the rosary.Franz Werfel, who wrote "The Song of Bernadette," commented that the Bernadette of a earlier era might have seen Diana, or one of the other goddesses. Or, we might add, an "angel of the Lord." The three Fatima children had had an encounter earlier with a translucent being who identified himself as the "Guardian Angel of Portugal." Lucy dos Santos, who later became a nun, was also subjected to disturbing visions of a burning hell that awaited those who spoke harshly of the Pope. There is another interesting case that occurred at Knock, Ireland, in August of 1879, when a religious tableau, Mary, Jesus and St. John the Evangelist, appeared on the exterior the wall of St. John's Church where it was observed by about 15 persons (except the parish priest who refused to leave his house to look at it). One of those who saw it closely, said the image seemed to be suspended in the air a small distance in front of the wall itself. A viewer from a distance thought it was a "magic lantern" projection. The apparition at Knock sounds to modern ears like a holographic projection, as does the Virgin over the holmoak in Fatima. We might be convinced that religion is a "noble lie," in the sense of warning a child that a "Boogie Man " lies in wait for them in a place of danger. But the thought comes to us that the prophet becomes the leader, and the believers the followers, for the prophet stands between them and their object of veneration. And in time, no doubt an orthodoxy will follow. And what can be the goal of all this except to keep the believers in a pious, obedient, and docile childhood, eagerly awaiting Heaven? And what is this Heaven, but an endless childhood without care or responsibility? Religion inculcates the view that a perfect Source is stymied in its efforts at perfecting creation by the stipulated free will of humanity. For no apparent reason, humanity rebels, and this rebellion leads to helpless guilt, and a feeling of unworthiness and isolation from the true reality. This guilt is covered by a sense of persecution which makes enemies of the rest of humanity. We cannot help but form the conclusion that what we know as religion has been crafted by an uncanny knowledge of human psychology and the way in which it can be controlled and set against itself. As a counter-point, though, one might say that such demonstrations such as Fatima, are an attempt by outsiders to civilize the population of a barbaric planet. When we believe, we are at peace and cease to think, when we are happy, we relax and cease to think.This is easy enough to rationalize if we consider thought as a survival art: if there is no problem or danger, there is no physical need for it. A student of yoga, in a story used by Schopenhauer, was asked why he spent his life in self denial to attain the bliss of nirvana, while his next door neighbor, a grandmother, was happy as a lark without a care in the world.The yogi replied he had often thought of that, but her simple ebullience was " a happiness I do not desire." VI. Remote Viewing, Channeling, If the reader recalls our comments in "The Embedded Self," of Section Four, (they) will recall that we hold the view is that the future cannot be actually foreseen by psychics, or remote

viewers. What is seen is what happened "last time." Potentially, any information is available psychically through introception--as Merrell-Wolff calls it. We expect that a "time traveler" would travel not to the future we will experience, but to a present of a wave preceeding our own.In a similar way, a sensitive sees, not the actual future we will encounter, but one of a wave preceding ours. Some remote viewers, Ed Dames, for example, say that if a future event is 'seeable' by remote viewing, it is a "done deal," and cannot be avoided. This may be true--but it would be a done deal of the last cycle. Our future is yet unwritten, so there is always a chance it may be different, albeit geological and cosmic events are not likely to be significantly different, being more mechanical. We don't really see much future for remote viewing as it is practiced. The real skill would be to be able to leave one's body in an O.B.E. and go to the destination. We expect that a time traveler would travel not to the future we will experience, but to a present of a wave preceeding our own.In a similar way, a sensitive sees, not the actual future we will encounter, but one of a wave preceding ours. Science has come to the conclusion that the human brain operates at the edge of chaos. Human consciousness, like a surfer, rides the wave of time in the fleeting instant of action in which all probabilities but one collapse, and fact is born.It is the moment of truth, the moment of magic. Channeling entities have made repeated efforts to explain things as viewed from the other side. Those who have followed our exposition may see why this would be such a daunting undertaking, because the person who is voicing the message is not a radio receiver, as some might believe. The channeling entity must construct the message from concepts in the medium's mind, and very often those concepts are only generalities from a 3+1 perspective. Shape Shifting. The "Indian rope trick" (of India) was a demonstation of a cobra crawling up a rope from a jar. Viewers were convinced they had seen this happen, but phography of the session showed nothing of the sort had happened. In the heyday of Spiritualism, an eidolon (as it was called) of a deceased person was said to be produced. The traditional explanation is that of ectoplasm emitted from the medium's body.In this case one has a visible, or reflective substance, which can presumably 'clothe' the higher body of the discarnate, in which case the projection of a visible image need not occur.But we cannot assert that it does not. This type of mediumship is not widely found, if at all, in the modern day. But the perception of the ascending cobra may be created in the experiencer's mind.We know of no reason why the perception, or mental picture, cannot be three dimensional rather than two dimensional. The mechanics of a supposed mental projection of a visible image boggle the mind, and it must be must forthrightly said that we can think of no simple way in which it could be done without technology.Our physical body is not a projection, but has grown. But then, so have the other phase room bodies. Possession. One's root sentience, being independent of space and time, has a much more intimate knowledge of any person's body that that person's own waking conscious perception of it. This may be somewhat disquieting to those who wish privacy, but it means that there really isn't any privacy at that level, except that which is ethically granted. Among those who are not ethically guided, are the practitioners of witchcraft who stick pins into wax dolls of their enemies. In this case, the doll merely serves to focus the attention. The hair sample locates the victim.The symbol is the address. Possession, as in "spirit possession," is often thought of as the forceful entry of an alien (in the broad sense of an outsider) personality. But it can be simpler and more intimate than that. If we are struck by an unusual desire or impulse, we take it as an expression of our hidden self. A minor

possession may be like that.It need not be a forcible take over by a demonic entity. Among the most vulnerable are small children, who seem to have a baffling ability to detect when they are not supervised. A child who cannot walk across a floor without falling may be able to drag a chair to a screen door, undo the lock, and toddle directly to a place of maximum danger, such as down a driveway to a busy highway, or to the edge of a swimming pool, where it falls in and drowns (both examples are drawn from actual cases). Carlos Castaneda, in his engrossing initiation into sorcery series, tells that his teacher, don Juan, told him that to remain awake during an O.B.E. experience, the sorcerer learn to pattern his projected body into the form of an animal or bird. His own choice was that of a crow. The sorcerer was vulnerable at such times, he was told, so the chosen creature should be one that was not hunted by humans or other creatures.This brings to mind the protected or totem animal in many traditions. But does the sorcerer actually create the inhabited form, or does he, rather, possess the body of a real animal or bird? VII. A Personal Experience. Some years ago, while residing in the City of Los Angeles, the author had an out-of-the-body experience which was, although personally meaningful, rather mundane as far as such accounts go. No conversations with masters or Divinities occurred, and no message to the world was received; it consisted largely of a late night stroll down an empty residential street. We include it, not for its significance, per se, but because its very ordinary character allows us to examine certain characteristics from the subspace perspective. The expperience began one night when I awoke from sleep with a need to urinate. I felt so unusually comfortable in bed and reluctant to arise that I postponed the trip to the bathroom and drifted back to sleep. This waking-sleeping sequence continued several times until I finally got up and attended to my need. But I was dismayed by my inability to work the bathroom light switch. After several futile attempts I was plodding down the hallway back to the bedroom when I was seized by a sudden apprehension and immediately found myself awake in bed. I then rose, fully awake, and returned to the bathroom. Upon returning to bed I drifted off to a state of sleep which gradually (so it seemed) became a state of semi awareness in which I found myself rocking side-to-side, as if lying in the bottom of a small boat rocked by gentle waves. The intensity of the rocking increased until it was as if I were a balloon buffeted by the wind, or a rag doll being shaken. Along with this I saw lightning-like flashes of red and black. It seemed as though I would be shaken apart, but like an engine coming up to speed, the buffeting soon died down to a complete stillness. I was suddenly aware of myself suspended in the air above the bed (and my physical body,of course), about four or five feet above the floor. After a short rest I began to slide feet forward horizontally and tilt up to a vertical position. This maneuver, executed without effort or foreknowledge, left me standing on the floor at the foot of the bed, and produced such a delightful "physical" sensation that I repeated it twice more just for the fun of doing so. The was no hesitancy in moving about, and I felt myself completely at ease. I shortly found myself passing through the wall that separated the bedroom from the living room, with little effort. I then crossed the living room and passed through the exterior wall of the duplex apartment to an exterior walkway. I moved through the courtyard to the front yard of the property and descended a few steps to the street sidewalk and headed toward Santa Monica Blvd., which was a little over half a block south. I stopped for a moment a few yards down the street to examine the bark of a camphor tree, and noted that the illumination of the near by street light

seemed to wash out the detail of what I was looking at. Around this time I was attracted to a sound of clatter and commotion coming from Santa Monica Blvd, the source of which seemed to merely be a passing automobile. Examining a side of a well known tree in the shade, I saw clusters of varicolored lights which resembled very tiny Xmas tree lights. Now and then, a colored ray would shoot out from the cluster. After satisfying my interest in the tree, I began to cross a library lawn and lost consciousness. My next recollection was that of flying, in an upright position, rapidly but easily, over a mountainous region in what I understood to be the Far East. My destination was an opening cut into the face of a mountain. The interior was brightly lighted and I could see people moving around within. A white half portico, reminiscent of the style of Monticello, covered the opening and there was a small landing platform to which I was headed. I have no memory of the excursion beyond this point. Some Comments: During an episode of the above exteriorization account, I had a series of perceptions. I am not now certain of when they occurred, but it was most likely immediately after separation. In one of them, I saw my daily life as a happening, which was of no particular interest outside of itself. It was perhaps the perspective of a mildly curious person passing by a noisy, active, party. In a second perception, I found myself suspended in a velvety blackness. The word 'darkness' doesn't do it credit. It wasn't emptiness, but had a tactile, comforting, presence. It is here, I thought, that a soul would go to find security and healing. Betty J. Eadie in Embraced By The Light reports a very similar perception of the "blackness". In this blackness, at a distance, were points of light. Focusing my attention on individual lights, I could see that each was a place of interesting activity. I felt, that had I so chosen, I could have traveled to any of them. I lacked the inclination to do so, however, and soon lost interest in the blackness itself. In no way did any part of the experience seem frightening or unusual, and there was a sense of long familiarity. Perhaps it was a familiar routine on which part of the waking consciousness was invited along. It was thus remembered. There was a sense of personal validation. Everyday life seemed as if a delirium from which I had awakened. I felt like my real self again. Again. this sense of self-validation was also noted by Eadie in her account of a near death experience. One thing that I found astounding was the amount of psychic energy we need to use in waking life to remain focused in the physical. There was no sense of being disembodied, and no real sense of loss of faculty. There was indeed, an optimum sense of vitality and freedom that one knows too seldom in life. In an actual occurrence, apart from memories and dreams, there is an undeniable sense of being there at that time and place. It is the sense of simple location in time and space, which may be the basis for our sense of reality. There was no sense that the experience was not real. I did not see my physical body asleep, or I should say, it is doubtful that I would have taken special note of it if I had seen it, and I did not see the connecting cord which is often reported. Where Was It? My excursion, many would say, took place on the lowest sub plane of the astral, which is held to be an exact, or almost exact, copy of the physical plane, and hence is called "the duplicate plane." Had I no knowledge of this interpretation, it would have been quite easy for me to have concluded that the environment was the physical materiality of daily life. Many others who have had similar experiences have concluded just that. The lights in the camphor bark were a little something else, though, as was the temple that I traveled to which did not have a physical plane existence, I am sure. In The Unobstructed

Universe, Betty White tries to explain things from the other side. She says, rightly, "My matter is your matter, plus." The question of why the lowest astral is a duplicate of the physical is often answered by the assertion that a film of astral materiality clings to the physical. However, I had a very clear awareness of the street light, which looked exactly as I remembered it. While I was unable to closely examine the detail of a blade of grass by such light, perhaps that would have been difficult in normal physical vision. The streetlight was emitting visible light which took work to generate. Need we imagine an astral counterpart of a hydroelectric turbine generating astral electricity? From the perspective of the view we have just presented, and the Upanishad pyramid scheme, the lowest astral plane would have to be what we call the twilight side of materiality. It has been said, in esoteric accounts, that light travels between the worlds, or planes (for each is a world in itself). In the pyramid model it is indicated, we believe, that light is represented by the corner edges of the pyramid where one phase state becomes the next. If one considers the pyramid model we introduced earlier with the paths of light represented by the edges between phase states, and draws corner-to-corner diagonals, and if we adopt the proposal that perceptible light reaches us at a 45 degree angle from the past an emitted light escapes at a 45 degree angle to the future, we can see that the light travels on paths parallel to the diagonals. If one diagrams this, it will be found that the light from the phase state above us ought to be (in some conditions) perceptible to us. This applies to all phase states: light comes from above and not below. Based on this, I would say my experience must have occurred on the dawnside phase state slightly in the past of our dayside phase state. It is generally held that the higher bodies are atomic and not composed of living cells.As we have said, the overall sense of the projection was that of being at ease and (finally) one's complete self. Perhaps some of the reason for this, along with the tremendous sense of effort required to remain focused in the physical, is the absence of the endless murmer and demands of billions of little life forms which, we must say, is not missed. We can assert from this experience and another much shorter experience a little later that occured while we were resting on a couch, that staying awake during the experience is a problem. Oddly enough, my main goal while exteriorized seemed to be directed to finding a way to repeat the condition at will. Locomotion. In the flying episode, a question that comes to mind is, "How can one float (and there was no more effort than floating) at hundreds, or even thousands, of miles per hour without expending any energy?" We can answer this question. The universal gauge expansion at the speed of light results in a rapid separation of objects each instant, but because the space between the objects is also expanding, we do not notice the expansion itself. But let's suppose the rate of expansion between two objects is reduced. From the perspective of relative space-time, it will seem as if a force exists between the objects. They will move toward one another without apparent expenditure of energy. In the case in point, it is the traveler who is producing the effect and who is the relative mover.A conventional explanation might require that the motive force be gravitational (should we wish to interpret it in those terms). I don't recall any pains taken to navigate my flight, it was, again, like an activity so habitual it could be directed without conscious attention. As far as ground locomotion was concerned, I do not have any recollection of actually walking, so perhaps, or even likely, floating was the case.
