Eternalism (philosophy of time)

Using that representational model, the past is generally seen as being immutably fixed, and the future as undefined and nebulous. As time passes, the moment that was once the present becomes part of the past; and part of the future, in turn, becomes the new present. In this way time is said to pass, with a distinct present moment "moving" forward into the future and leaving the past behind. This conventional model presents a number of difficult philosophical problems, and seems difficult to reconcile with currently accepted scientific theories such as the theory of relativity.

Many philosophers have argued that relativity implies eternalism.[3] Although he disagrees in a qualified sense, philosopher of science, Dean Rickles, notes that "the consensus among philosophers seems to be that special and general relativity are incompatible with presentism The philosopher Katherin A.

Stages of Conscious Awakening. 25th January 2015 By Montalk Guest Writer for Wake Up World It is imperative that we awaken from mundane awareness into full spiritual remembrance of who we are.

Stages of Conscious Awakening

The problem is that even when physically awake, we can still be mentally asleep, unaware of ourselves and entirely absorbed in whatever mechanical impulse or external stimulus captures our attention. This state of confluence, or mental absorption, keeps us in an unproductive dream state. Higher consciousness. Higher consciousness is the consciousness of a higher Self, transcendental reality, or God.

Higher consciousness

It is "the part of the human being that is capable of transcending animal instincts". The concept developed in German Idealism, and is a central notion in contemporary popular spirituality.

10 Mind-Bending Implications of the Many Worlds Theory

The most popular mainstream interpretation, the Copenhagen interpretation, has as one of its central tenets the concept of wave function collapse. That is to say, every event exists as a “wave function” which contains every possible outcome of that event, which “collapses”—distilling into the actual outcome, once it is observed. For example, if a room is unobserved, anything and everything that could possibly be in that room exists in “quantum superposition”—an indeterminate state, full of every possibility, at least until someone enters the room and observes it, thereby collapsing the wave function and solidifying the reality.

The Existence of Collective Consciousness Explored in a Radical New Phone App

Three decades of research at Princeton University probed this question, daring to explore radical ideas about the relationship between mind and matter. Controversy stirred when the researchers published surprising evidence that mind and matter reflected each other in a mysterious way. Ordinary individuals were able to shift the distributions of carefully designed random number generators (RNGs) using nothing more than their mental intention. The Princeton researchers seemed to have replicated an enigmatic effect previously reported by physicist Helmet Schmidt back in the 1970s. The underlying probabilities of their sensitive systems were apparently responding to the intentions of otherwise completely separated individuals, revealing a mysterious ordering influence of consciousness. Researchers took RNGs to a range of events, including mass meditations, sports events and other gatherings.

Yoga and the Biology of Transcendence: Part One. “The yogis have said for ages that spiritual practice changes the brain, and they have a very systematic method for doing so… The Yoga Sutra is a manual for how to do this”. Joan Shivarpita Harrigan, director of Patanjali Kundalini Yoga Care(How to Boost Brain Power, Yoga Journal, October 2008) According to Yogic tradition, a tree to enlightenment grows within us. By directing our life force energy or consciousness (the sacred serpent Kundalini) upwards from the root of our spine, to ascend the tree trunk (spinal cord), into the highest branches of our brain (the Ajna Chakra or third eye), we blossom into cosmic consciousness and realize our true nature as divine beings. Does this yogic metaphor of ascension have a basis in our biology ? Today there is a great deal. Yoga and The Biology of Transcendence: Part Two. “By the practise of the limbs of yoga, the impurities dwindle away and here dawns the light of wisdom, leading to discriminative discernment”.

(Patanjali’s Sutra #28) Patanjali was a great yogi mystic and philosopher. Yoga and The Biology of Transcendence: Part Three. “ Then follows supreme mastery of the senses” Yoga Sutra of Patanjali #55 In yoga, the area of the brain located just behind the brow (the pre-frontal cortex) is called the third eye, or Ajna chakra. Ajna means command, and awakening this chakra through the ascension of Kundalini was believed to awaken cosmic consciousness and bestow Siddhi’s, or supernatural powers.

Kundalini has been variously described as our life force energy or consciousness. Yoga and The Biology of Transcendence: Part Four. The first duty of those who really want to do yoga is to eliminate from their consciousness, with all the might, all the sincerity, all the endurance of which they are capable, even the shadow of a fear. To walk the path, one must be dauntless, and never indulge in that petty, small, feeble, nasty shrinking back upon oneself, which is fear. – The Mother, The Sunlit Path: Passages from Conversations and Writings of the Mother According to Patanjali “when disturbed by negative thoughts opposite (positive) ones should be thought of.”

Today multiple studies have shown replacing negative thoughts with positive ones actually shifts neural energy from the hindbrain to the pre-frontal cortex. The Transcension Hypothesis, John M.
