    From First Dark
    The Cosmic Perspective

    Giant diamond floating in...
    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    It looks as if the world was about to come to a complete standstill. Nobody knows that at this very moment, we are hurtling through space at an amazing speed. Hard to believe, since the stars don't look like they are moving. The Hunter hovers just over the horizon yonder, ready to shoot aimlessly at the vast number of bright gems studded on the black sheet of infinite depth. The moon was full tonight, instead of hiding elusively as it was wont to do. This is my favourite time of the day, the time when the Earth revolves quietly and cradles its people to sleep. This is the time where fantastical creatures of myth and magic in the sky look down upon us and say their greetings, though not often do we answer their calls.

    Unlike most self-professed "nocturnal creatures", I do not stay indoors during such calming times. I am not yet a scientist who can tell you everything that exists in the sky or elucidate much out of it; I am but a humble stargazer, who finds awe and inspiration in the sybilline structures of the universe, of which I can only be a part of by gazing into the sky. I see the stars coming out to play when civilization least cares about them. While most people choose to amuse themselves with mindless activities, I choose to see the subtle movements in the heavens, count the uncountable number of distant suns that paint our night sky. When I look at Orion, I don't just see a lifeless constellation, I see a man made of fiery flowers of hydrogen lost in a faraway world, scintillating ornately with piercing red Betelgeuse and young, blue Rigel.

    As I am out there under the mercy of the lords of the sky, I am not deafened by a silence which might haunt many. Instead, I am washed with the eternal music of the universe - the symphony of strings. Ideas pop out of thin air like quantum fluctuations that inspire me and cancel out the hectic humdrum of life, spurring some of the most creative thoughts I ever had. Even if it is raining and I can't go out, I lock myself up in my room and think. I think of the happy moments in my life and reminisce about those times I screwed up in life. It is during this time that I can finally take a step back from my consciousness and analyze situations without taking emotions into consideration. This exercise makes appreciating life as it is easier, and I begin to see that what were once thought to be isolated dots in the bigger scheme of things connect.

    Night. It is that time of the day when heaven comes a-knocking. It is the time of the day when the Gods lend their creative sparks to me. The darkness, the mystery, the ghastly shadows cast by the moon; these are the things that arouse me and hold the secrets to unlock my sometimes quixotic world. Not many will understand the deep affinity I reserve for the night, but nevertheless, it doesn't deter me from answering the call of the full moon. Night is when dreams awaken, and at times when I really lose it, I would dream of an alien civilization visiting, and they would take me to a place no one has ever dreamed of before.

    "Timewave zero" is a numerological formula that purports to calculate the ebb and flow of "novelty", defined as increase over time in the universe's interconnectedness, or organized complexity.According to Terence McKenna, the universe has a teleological attractor at the end of time that increases interconnectedness, eventually reaching a singularity of infinite complexity in 2012, at which point anything and everything imaginable will occur simultaneously.

    Consciousness. It's a debate. It is what it takes to control our actions and emotions; it is what puts us human beings one step ahead of any other creature on the planet; it is immaterial, possibly spiritual, and everybody has it. Yet, we don't know what it really is.

    There have been several projects aimed at predicting future events that have tried to draw a parallel between accumulative consciousness and future prediction, though we don't know yet if there really is such connectivity.

    For the past 12 years, random number generators have been running all over the world, electronically flipping 200 coins each second, with the intention of measuring a global consciousness. The Global Consciousness Project (GCP), originating from Princeton, have named these random event generators Electrogaiagrams (EGGs) and are using them to test whether a human consciousness extends a field around the earth which can change the results of random events. They claim that when an important event occurs, such as the 9/11 terrorist attack or the Indian Ocean tsunami, the random event generators start to display patterns that should not exist in truly random sequences.

    “We’re perfectly willing to discover that we’ve made mistakes, but we haven’t been able to find any, and neither has anyone else,” says Roger Nelson, the project leader. “Our data shows clearly that the chances of getting these results by fluke are one million to one against.” Also, the data the GCP releases are controlled experiments with defined criteria.

    Even so, it is easy for a project like this to construct a hypothesis that cannot be disproved – any patterned data confirms the hypothesis, whereas any that does not are simply some other effects of global consciousness. However, until someone comes up with solid evidence that the GCP is fruitless, the EGGs will continue to flip their virtual coins, trying to see into the future.

    Then, there's the Chinese I-Ching, the Book of Changes. A gentlemen by the name of Terrence McKenna studied the I Ching intensely and began to see a pattern emerging. From that pattern he produced a time line graph and called it the "Time Wave Zero" theory. Terrence's time line derived from the I Ching ended in the year 2012 - December 21, 2012 to be exact.

    The text of the I Ching is a set of oracular statements represented by 64 sets of six lines each called hexagrams (卦 guà). Each hexagram is a figure composed of six stacked horizontal lines (爻 yáo), each line is either Yang (an unbroken, or solid line), or Yin (broken, an open line with a gap in the center). With six such lines stacked from bottom to top there are 26 or 64 possible combinations, and thus 64 hexagrams represented.

    The oldest method for casting the hexagrams, the yarrow stalk method, was gradually replaced during the Han Dynasty by the three coins method and the yarrow stalk method was lost. With the coin method, the probability of yin or yang is equal.

    Ultimately, it is up to how the hexagram is interpreted by the consciousness that defines ones destiny.

    More interesting is the Web Bot Project. To those of you who have not heard of it before, it's quite intriguing. The web bot project, developed in the late 1990's, was initially created to assist in making stock market predictions.

    The technology uses a system of spiders to crawl the Internet and search for keywords, much like a search engine does. When a keyword is located, the web bot takes a snapshot of the text preceding and following the keyword. This snapshot of text is sent to a central location where it is then filtered to define meaning.

    The web bot project's concept is aimed at tapping into the collective unconscious of the universe and it's inhabitants. As well, there is an interesting time concept involved and an unusual concept of a "tipping point" regarding the past, current, and future times.

    In 2001, the web bot operators began to notice that stock market predictions were not the only matters being accurately predicted by the web bot and they began to take notice of the coincidence with occurrences and explored it further.

    One of the first accurate predictions from the web bot took place in June of 2001. At that time, the web bot predicted that a life altering event would take place within the next 60-90 days. An occurrence of such proportion that it's effects would be felt worldwide. The program based it's prediction on its filtered web chatter content which, I guess you could say, ultimately represents the collective unconscious of society.

    Regrettably, the program's prediction proved accurate and the Twin Towers fell on 9/11/2001.

    Now the Web Bot project isn't voodoo by any means, but at times it may seem so, "What becomes obvious when reading about the technology is that it sometimes reads a bit like the I Ching, the Chinese Book of Changes, because the technology doesn't come out and say "go look for a terrorist attack over there." What it does is it gives phrases that would be associated with how people talk about an event, or more accurately, how they change their speech to reflect their thought processes because of an event. The web bot technology apparently taps in to an area of "preconscious awareness." It's here that you run into the ramifications of Dean Radin's work at the Boundary Institute and the work of the Princeton Global Consciousness Project."

    So, what conclusion did Dean Radin's work produce? According to Peoplenomics, "The mind-bending evidence in Radin's work is that in a laboratory, people begin to react to an event as early as 6-seconds before it takes place. In other words, if you are about to show someone a horribly grotesque picture of something, they will already be physically reacting to it before the picture actually becomes visible. Up to 6-seconds, or so, and within the confines of a lab! In quantum terms, Radin's work demonstrates that people are physically able to perceive 6-seconds into the future."

    "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience - we are spiritual beings having a human experience." And it appears that each one of us is internally blessed with precognitive instincts. Brings to mind the phrase "listen to your gut" as there seems to be some hard evidence that, indeed, our guts do speak to us. Those are primal instincts that each of us are granted by Mother Nature as a natural defense mechanism. However, our continually developed false sense of security within our culture leads many to ignore these God given instincts nowadays and chalk them up to "hooey."

    "When you study natural science and the miracles of creation, if you don't turn into a mystic you are not a natural scientist" ~ Albert Hoffman

    So, does Peoplenomics have a theory about how the Web Bot technology works? "Sort of. It's like changes in language precede large emotional events. The larger the emotional impact of an event, the more advance notice the bots seem to give. If you picture some pin holes in a piece of paper - and you imagine being able to look through each pinhole for a fraction of a second - with the objective of seeing the future on the other side of the paper - that's where the web bots are today.

    Ever since Plato's Allegory of the Cave, people have sensed that odd things go on at the archetype level of consciousness. The web bots are a linguistic attempt to use the high data density of the Internet to sample language and seek linguistic shifts that we believe may precede events. The initial results suggest that language shifts on a macro level begin to occur 45 to 90 days before society-changing events. We believe we've demonstrated, most recently with the Northeast Power Outage forecast, that changes in language do indeed precede events - on a far broader scale than Dean Radin's early lab results suggest - and these subtle language changes are publicly available by massive sampling and analysis routine Internet traffic."

    Now, back to the invaluable old question : What IS consciousness? And if it affects our future so much, do we have the power to change our future simply by changing our thought? Time for us to figure that out.
