20 years of meditation
Excerpt from my forthcoming book The Worldview of Modern Man
If a scientist who is doing research and discovers something, does he push his discovery aside just because he has finished his research? Not likely. When I started meditating, it didn’t even occur to me that it could take 20 years. I was looking for an answer to something, but in the process I discovered something. This discovery led me to the emergence of the worldview of advanced man alongside modern man. If I had done this meditation as a scientist, I would have had to study a lot beforehand, but the knowledge I gained would have defined the framework of my thinking. True, I would have a paper on it, but how many scientists live and work on the periphery because their fellow scientists refuse to acknowledge their achievements? If I had looked the other way and not done this meditation by following my individual path, I would have had someone constantly by my side who would have interfered with everything I did and would have forbidden half of it. As a scientist, I would have had to beg for funding and I would certainly have had a confidentiality agreement shoved in front of me, or a contract whereby my research would become the property of the funder. There would also have been the risk that my boss would have stolen the discovery for himself, but it is no different in the world of the masters. There is only one way, and it is not an easy way, but to search for a tiny piece of yourself, you don’t really need a boss or a master. How many explorers has another scientist stood above? An explorer is an explorer because he discovers something new, or explores the old in a completely new light. Such scientists as we know today were not nearly as recognised in their time, and had to fight for it. It’s no different here, only the struggle is more real, even if it’s completely invisible.
Many of you may be a little bit puzzled as to why I should examine a tiny slice of myself and what has that got to do with it? The answer has to do with one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the last century, and one of the greatest silences surrounding it. A special experiment was conducted at the University of Paris, led by Alain Aspect. This research team discovered that subatomic particles such as electrons can communicate instantaneously with each other, regardless of the distance between them. This sparked a great deal of controversy in the narrow scientific community, as this observation contradicts Einstein’s thesis that no information can travel faster than the speed of light. But there were those who tried to explain it away. David Bohm, a physicist at the University of London, has concluded that the solid form of the universe is only apparent and that reality is nothing more than a hologram. This is confirmed by other researchers’ research in other fields. In the field of brain research, the question has been raised of how the human brain can process the vast amount of information that is generated in an average human lifetime. How can it process the flood of signals that hit the senses in real time? How can it remember? Karl Pribham, a neurophysiologist at Stanford University, is also convinced that reality has a holographic structure. The same is true of Eastern religions and Western esoteric doctrines, which say that the material world is an illusion, but they are not so clear. The hologram has an interesting property. Everyone has seen a hologram sticker or a piece of paper. The image is so realistic because it perfectly captures the waves reflected off the object. On a 2D flat sheet of paper, the image appears 3D because a laser is used to create interference, so all the information carried by the wavefront is preserved. If you cut off a small piece of such an image with scissors and illuminate it with coherent light (e.g. laser light), you will not see the small piece, but the whole image in small size. This means that any small part of the hologram will contain the whole information. So if you start looking inside yourself at a tiny slice of yourself and illuminate it with “enlightened” light, you will find the whole world inside you. In fact, the purpose of esotericism is to find this way.
If you start meditating to find a solution to your personal problems and you run into this, it’s exactly like asking a scientist to finish his research. One can live a lifetime without the events of one’s life ever being connected, but if one breaks through the past-present-future cause-and-effect in one’s mind, time becomes flexible. Those who succeed in this can say that they have entered the world of higher dimensions. In this perspective, something in the future can be the cause of something.
