The Unbearable Fear of Psi: On Scientific Suppression in the 21st Century – Etzel Cardeña

This paper describes various examples of blatant attempts to suppress and censor parapsychology research and those who are doing it. The examples include raising false accusations, barring access to journals, suppressing papers and data, and ostracizing and persecuting scientists interested in the topic. The intensity of fear and vituperation caused by parapsychology research is disproportionate even to the possibility that the psi hypothesis could be completely wrong, so I speculate on the psychological reasons that may give rise to it.

Life-Form A Matters-Syncytium: DeepScience for Matter Correlates of Conscious States – Mukho, A.K.

The perspective developed in this paper calls for a DeepScience to show how the essence of the material science is interconnected with the essence of the Multiversity along the sub-quantum and sub-subquantum recess of nature involving presently non-observable several exotic states of matter, dark matter, neutrinos, operations of informationstates, operations of cognitive faculty such as mind, self, life-principle and consciousness. Investigation of this interdisciplinary terrain has translational value for next three century’s science.

Emergence of Homo spiritualis: Of Essential Requirements – Faith, Devotion and Love – Mukho, A.K.

On the landscape of human possibilities, consciousness-rooted futurologists predicts emergence of Homo spiritualis from the present Homo sapiens. On this passage, to tide over different grades of uncertainties cultivation of Faith, Devotion and Love is felt essential. The deep science in psychology, biology and neurology has been discussed while cultivating such qualities in life. The beneficial spin offs from such perspective are new ideas and several research questions addressing of which might help to extend the vertical depth and horizon of science.

Efimov K-theory of Diamonds – Shanna Dobson

Motivated by Scholze and Fargues' geometrization of the local Langlands correspondence using perfectoid diamonds and Clausen and Scholze's work on the K-theory of adic spaces using condensed mathematics, we introduce the Efimov K-theory of diamonds. We propose a pro-diamond, a large stable (infinity,1)-category of diamonds D^{diamond}, diamond spectra and chromatic tower, and a localization sequence for diamond spectra.

Visualizing Information as a Dynamic Entity Roadmap of Deep Science, AI and Humanity – Mukho, A.K.

Visualization of information as an autonomous intentional potent causal entity, which has a dynamically changing geometry across the depth of nature remains a valuable leading guide for extending the vertical depth of science. Following this thread of information in its various forms, it is possible to travel imaginatively across the ladder of cognition from physical signal to the world of sublime wisdom and back from the wisdom to signal world.

Spontaneous Spiritual Awakenings: Phenomenology, Altered States, Individual Differences, and Well-Being – Jessica Corneille

Spontaneous Spiritual Awakenings (SSAs) are subjective experiences characterised by a sudden sense of direct contact, union, or complete nondual merging (experience of oneness) with a perceived ultimate reality, the universe, “God,” or the divine. These profound transformative experiences have scarcely been researched, despite extensive anecdotal evidence suggesting their potential to catalyse drastic, long-term, and often positive shifts in perception, world-view, and well-being. The aims of this study were to investigate the phenomenological variances of these experiences, including the potential differences between SSAs and Spontaneous Kundalini Awakenings (SKAs), a subset of awakening experiences that the authors postulate may produce a higher likelihood of both physical and negative effects; to explore how these experiences compare to other altered states of consciousness (ASCs), including those mediated by certain psychedelic substances; and understand their impact on well-being.

A Quest for Wisdom: Inspiring Purpose on the Path of Life – David Lorimer

This wide-ranging and highly-acclaimed volume brings together 25 of his essays written over the last 40 years. Among the significant thinkers featured here are many who have shone their light on his path, and which can provide enriching nourishment for readers on their own life journeys. The essays explore philosophy, meaning and spirituality; consciousness, death and transformation; and responsibility, ethics and society - all themes central to the Scientific and Medical Network, with which David has been associated for over 35 years and for whose journal, Paradigm Explorer, he has reviewed over 150 books a year. As such, these perceptive and illuminating essays explore the nature of life and death, questions of meaning and purpose, and the challenge of how we can live more harmoniously together. David hopes that readers will be inspired, as Albert Schweitzer put it, in our common task ‘to become more finely and deeply human.’

Consciousness In The Universe An Updated Review Of The “Orch Or” Theory – Hameroff, 2016

We proposed in the mid 1990’s that consciousness depends on biologically “orchestrated” coherent quantum processes in collections of microtubules within brain neurons, that these quantum processes correlate with, and regulate, neuronal synaptic and membrane activity, and that the continuous Schrödinger evolution of each such process terminates in accordance with the specific Diósi–Penrose (DP) scheme of “objective reduction” (“OR”) of the quantum state.

A Forgotten Truth and The Sacred Quest

The subtitles of these books are significant in referring to a spiritual vision for modern man and the integration of experiment with experience in arriving at a coherent worldview. Both Max and Peter epitomised the Network approach of balancing rigour with openness, and indeed it was Peter who invited Max to join the Network after the initial meeting recommended writing letters to possible members.

An Essay on Metaphysics

There is no doubt in my mind that the book is a seminal one for philosophy of science and should be much more widely known in the field. It consists of five parts, namely metaphysics beginning with Aristotle, anti-metaphysics, the existence of God, the metaphysics of Kant, and causation.

An Uncommon Collaboration

The author is surely correct in describing the collaboration between Krishnamurti (1895-1986) and David Bohm (1917-1992) as uncommon, since, as he points out, most collaborations take place within the same discipline. There is no doubt that they were both men of genius, deeply concerned with the human situation, its limitations and prospects.

Belonging to God

The book is grounded in inter-spirituality and endorsed by Ravi Ravindra with its deeper exploration of the spiritual transformative journey, which is the primary purpose of religion – hence the term interspiritual rather than interreligious dialogue.

Essays

A New INSCIght of INformational SCIence – Jude Currivan, 2018

Reverting to the primacy of mind and consciousness, as espoused by Planck and many other pioneering scientists, it is showing is that universal mind, articulated as digitised information and represented as dynamic and relational patterns and processes of semiotic information, literally in-forms the formation of our Universe.

Atheism is Inconsistent with the Scientific Method, Prizewinning Physicist Says

Marcelo Gleiser, a 60-year-old Brazil-born theoretical physicist at Dartmouth College and prolific science popularizer, has won this year’s Templeton Prize. Valued at just under $1.5 million, the award from the John Templeton Foundation annually recognizes an individual “who has made an exceptional contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension”.

Can we Crack the Mind-Body Problem? Part I – Emmanuel Ransford

This paper is in three parts. In this Part One, the randomness displayed by quantum objects is explored. The notion of quantumhood is then introduced. It refers to a kind of “wave wholeness” of elementary particles that, most significantly, turns out to be necessary to sustain nature’s consistency. When this quantumhood is in danger of being lost, a wave collapse, or quantum jump, is in order.

Quotes

I am very astonished that the scientific picture of the real world around me is very deficient. It gives us a lot of factual information, puts all of our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart that really matters to us. It cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. Science sometimes pretends to answer questions in these domains but the answers are very often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously.

– Erwin Schrödinger

Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe. What we believe is based upon our perceptions. What we perceive depends upon what we look for. What we look for depends on what we think. What we think depends on what we perceive. What we perceive determines what we believe. What we believe determines what we take to be true. What we take to be true is our reality.

– Prof David Bohm

Knowledge of the historic and philosophical background gives that kind of independence from prejudices of his generation from which most scientists are suffering. This independence created by philosophical insight is—in my opinion— the mark of distinction between a mere artisan or specialist and a real seeker after truth.

– Albert Einstein
