Think about this for a moment: If the human mind does not loom large in the coming history of the human race, then what is to become of us? The future is bound to be internal linkpsychedelic, because the future belongs to the mind. We are just beginning to push the buttons on the mind. Once we take a serious engineering approach to this, we are going to discover the plasticity, the mutability, the eternal nature of the mind and, I believe, release it from the monkey. My vision of the final human future is an effort to exteriorize the soul and internalize the body, so that the exterior soul will exist as a superconducting lens of translinguistic matter generated out of the body of each of us at a internal linkcritical juncture at our psychedelic bar mitzvah. From that point on, we will be eternal somewhere in the solid-state internal linkmatrix of the translinguistic lens we have become. One's body image will exist as a holographic internal linkwavetransform while one is at play in the fields of the lord and living in internal linkElysium.

No thing. One of the chapters I wrote once was "The Non-sense of No-thing," -- the nonsense of nothing. But it's nonsensory, because senses are lenses, and as internal linkDavid Bohm has said so well, if you take the lenses away you've got a internal linkhologram. Lenses tend to reify, to objectify and articulate particles. Take the lenses away and you've got distribution.

internal link_The Holographic Universe_ by Michael Talbot

Selected Quotes, pp. 54-55

Considered together, internal linkBohm and Pribram's theories provide a profound new way of looking at the world: Our brains mathematically construct objective internal linkreality by interpreting internal linkfrequencies that are ultimately projections from another internal linkdimension, a deeper order of existence that is beyond both space and time: The brain is a hologram folded in a holographic universe.

For Pribram, this synthesis made him realize that the objective world does not exist, at least not in the way we are accustomed to believing. What is "out there" is a vast ocean of internal linkwaves and frequencies, and reality looks concrete to us only because our brains are able to take this holographic blur and convert it into the sticks and stones and other familiar objects that make up our world. How is the brain (which itself is composed of frequencies of matter) able to take something as insubstantial as a blur of frequencies and make it seem solid to the touch? "The kind of mathematical internal linkprocess that Bekesy simulated with his vibrators is basic to how our brains construct our image of a world out there," Pribram states. In other words, the smoothness of a piece of fine china and the feel of beach sand beneath our feet are really just elaborate versions of the phantom limb syndrome.

According to Pribram this does not mean there aren't china cups and grains of beach sand out there. It simply means that a china cup has two very different aspects to its reality. When it is filtered through the lens of our brain it manifests as a cup. But if we could get rid of our lenses, we'd experience it as an interference pattern. Which one is real and which is illusion? "Both are real to me," says Pribram, "or, if you want to say, neither of them are real."

THE LENS OF internal linkPERCEPTION by Hal Zina Bennett 1987

"Every thing in nature contains all the powers of nature. Every thing is made of ONE hidden stuff." _Emerson_

________________________________
Molecular and Spiritual Communication
________________________________

"We know that in advanced physics, reality is inevitably altered by the presence of the observer. The billions of electrons that make up the observer himself interact with electrons that make up the thing being observed, changing it structure. In the words of physicist Ludwig Boltzmann: My observation has not only recorded internal linkreality. I am much more than an objective observer, since my presence, the presence of the particles that make up my very being, alters that reality.

French physicist Jean Charon has stated that the INTERACTIONS OF THOSE SAME PARTICLES, more specifically, the electrons, CONSTITUTE WHAT RELIGIOUS
THINKERS HAVE DESCRIBED AS THE WORLD OF SPIRIT. This, of course, includes the billions of electrons that we each carry around as our selves. Because our physical beings, as well as our thoughts and feelings, are made possible by INTERACTIONS between electrons both inside and outside our physical boundaries, we theoretically are always in communion with the universe and with the internal linkLogos. The Lens of Perception, highly charged with electrons that store our personal history, plays a very great part indeed, constantly interacting with that which we observe, and constantly changing it.

On the one hand, we accept the possibility that electrons buzzing about in our consciousness can affect the physical world beyond the boundaries of our skin. But the implications go further than that. Each person is also the RECEIVER of those buzzings- you of my buzzing, me of yours. If your buzzing electrons can affect the physical world, does it not follow that those same buzzings can affect me, since both my consciousness and my physical body are made up of material that is responsive to the electrons --indeed, I am electrons myself. It is at this point that psychology, spiritual questions and physics truly merge, asking us to take a internal linkquantum leap in our thinking.

Ludwig Boltzmann tells us:

ONLY WHEN ONE ADMITS THAT SPIRIT AND WILL ARE NOT SOMETHING OVER AND ABOVE THE BODY, but rather complicated actions of material parts whose ability so to act becomes increasingly perfected by development, only when one admits that intuition, will and self-consciousness are merely the highest stages of
development of these physio chemical internal linkforces of matter by which primeval protoplasmic internal linkbubbles were enabled to seek regions that were more favorable and
avoid those that were less favorable for them, only then does every thing become clear in psychology.

DANCING THE LOGOS

During the time that I was involved in the theater, I became particularly interested in internal linkdances and dramatic performances in which both performers and audience were transported beyond the borders of their egos into paranormal consciousness states. Typically, performers donned ceremonial garb and masks to depict gods, goddesses, animal entities, and various FORCES in nature that played important roles in their mythology. Dancing to steady, monotonous rhythms- sometimes influenced by internal linkhallucinogenics- the actors assumed the characters of these entities. In the internal linkprocess, the dancer was released from his own ego, and for a period took on another identity.

By assuming other characters and then surrendering to them one gained access to knowledge they might otherwise not have been able to access. With ego suspended, every day perceptions internal linkdissolved, the players became open to the "Universal internal linkTruths," or to that which the biblical scholars call "The Logos."

It is my belief that through observing the theater within the Lens of Perception, and through participating in that inner community of which that theater is a part, we not only gain a greater understanding of our individual lives, and our life purposes, we gain access to the universal knowledge described above. The internal linktrance for some people-performers and spectators alike- BECAUSE THEY MIMIC A PROCESS THAT IS ALREADY GOING ON INSIDE EACH ONE OF US.

The success of the INDIVIDUAL as a participant in the Logos is dependent on a kind of peace and harmony established between the inner world and the outer one. If we are to prosper, if we are to enjoy satisfying relationships, if we are to enjoy the very best in ourselves we must NOT avoid the inner world. Not every one need do that consciously or deliberately, of course. There are many fully happy, successful, and internal linkevolved people who are not in the least aware of the process I'm describing but are able to embrace the inner world and join it with the most positive influences in the external world. Part of their success may be luck, part of it may be that they practice some of the process I describe without knowing it.

The study of the Lens of Perception is NOT the only one way of getting what you need from your inner world. There are many others, and many teachers now available. This seems to be a internal linktime when internal linkinformation of this kind is being made widely available and usually without the long initiation processes that are associated with the traditions out of which they come.

Until the past two decades, techniques for getting to know the inner world, and for traveling safely within it have been in the hands of an elite the priest, the internal linkOracle, the guru, the internal linkshaman and more recently the psychologist. But now we are living in a time of rapid change, when greater and greater numbers of people are asking for tools to expand their understanding and mastery of their own inner worlds. In the Reformation of the sixteenth century, mankind claimed and won the right to private judgement in interpreting the Bible. Now the struggle is more quiet and more subtle, without violence, and often without public fanfare, but no less important than what happened 400 years ago. As Marilyn Ferguson has pointed out in her book _THE AQUARIAN internal linkCONSPIRACY_ it is a revolution "Whose roots are old and deep in human history, (and which) belongs to all of us."

***
Emerson spoke of "the voices which we hear in solitude" which sadly "grow faint and inaudible as we enter into the world." He spoke of these voices as the true
SOURCE of each person, guiding him or her in the path intended Each person's true power was to be recognized by the awakening and expression of the voice in
the world:

"The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried."

It is in the service of these goals that our renewed interest in the inner world is being directed, since it is through the skills and insights unfolding here that the voice within gains the strength required to meet both the personal and global challenges before us."
