A World Without The Internet: What Would It Be Like? How Different Would Your Life Be?

Internet after all is not without enemies…
The Internet has become the Archimedean point in our daily life. Almost nothing gets done without it nowadays. The more we rely on it, the more it seems impossible to live without it. It is undoubtedly the most reliable machine Man has ever made. However, could this blind dependence of ours in itself be a threat to mankind? Are we investing too much in this new medium that we are risking to lose too much if we ever were to live without it?

Why is the Internet so successful? How does it invade all aspects of life? The Internet, as a matter of fact, is the only manmade machine that has an organic structure. The way everything is wired up is unbelievably complex. Seeing that it has this organic structure, it seems to fit the properties of vitalism perfectly, and all aspects of human daily life. It fits the structure of society and how people connect to each other.

Life spreads by networking. The body itself is an information processor. Memory resides not just in brains but in every cell. No wonder genetics bloomed along with information theory. Gleick (2011:07)

Every newly added part, be it a computer or a smartphone for example, fits perfectly within the larger whole of the global network without disrupting the function of the rest of its parts, just like organic living cells. This is because “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” (Aristotle 384-22 BC). Besides, the Internet could also be seen as a virtual reduplication of society and reality as a whole. Therefore, it enjoys social compatibility. The Internet is capable of acquiring new intelligences, which is an aspect of the human brain. There is always room for improvement, but if its success is not due to its organic structure, then maybe it is due to the fact that Internet is an efficient tool that circulates, measures, organizes and processes information, boosting human knowledge. Thus, the Internet is unique for its potential to store and easily access human knowledge and above all, its promise for the ideal democracy.

Could this huge machine we call the Internet be something ephemeral in human history? Is it possible that somehow it may not be around in the near future? Most people go about their daily lives as if Internet has always been here and always will be. However, its success and mere presence are not proof of its permanence. It would be unwise to think it will always be around. Actually, we have no guarantee that it will. It is evident that it is so reliable but yet at the same time it is so vulnerable. Its destruction is a legitimate probability although there isn’t much fuss about it.

Thanks to its omnipresence, the Internet has redefined the concept of power. On one hand it has empowered the people; structured them and unified their voices. Power is no longer strictly identified by missiles and bullets, but rather by ideas and people. On the other hand, the Internet has also empowered governments. It has enabled them with new ways of censoring, controlling, and manipulating people. This makes the thousands-years-long strife between governments and citizens even more intense.

…this has obviously empowered individuals in a broad and complex set of ways, but as our lives become more and more dependent on the internet, it has also provided governments with a single point of contact for nearly ubiquitous surveillance. Kevin Drum (2013)

The Internet plays in favor of both parties. This can make the suppressed and overpowered party, be it the citizen or government, target the very same weapon with which the one in power exerts power.  Using Egypt as an example, it is almost unthinkable to picture the Egyptian uprising without social networking. When the government awoke to the danger of the people protesting, they immediately shut down the Internet and cellphone services as a form of resistance on January 28th 2011, OECD (2013:36).

In contrast, a worldwide rage among citizens of some countries is growing over the fact that their governments are trying to sensor the Internet. Consequently, movements and organizations such as Anonymous and Wikileaks have emerged and threatened many governments as well as Internet security. The possibilities are endless to what the masses can do when they are upset, as history has shown.

It would, perhaps, be shocking for citizens of respected democratic states to discover that foreign forces were influencing their lives in small but meaningful ways. It’s a universal issue and one that is highly controversial by its nature and though its sheer audacity. Bilal Khalid (2012)

In the two given examples above, it is shown how governments and citizens alike can constitute a threat to Internet stability. It seems it is the Internet that is primarily targeted whenever one party reacts. This sort of struggle between governments and the people is not ending anytime soon, and it can, and may, have huge repercussion with the presence of the Internet in the near future if things escalated. Now, with that being said, and since globalization is pushing us towards a single one-world government, let us apply this small incident of Egypt on a larger scale. What would happen if all citizens were at odds with the governments over power?

Similarly, what if the Internet granted citizens unconditional freedom that would threaten the firm grasp governments have over their people? Wouldn’t the Internet be susceptible of being the cost of this struggle for control? Wouldn’t it be, and maybe it is, the battlefield that is at the risk of its own destruction? Weapons by nature inherently bear the seeds of their own destruction, and the Internet is being used as a weapon– a very vulnerable one. No one would care about the survival of the Internet as long as its survival intervenes with one’s own interests. Internet after all is not without enemies. The more technology advances, the more we meet those longing for antiquity and the medieval life when things used to be simple. Ultimately, if the Internet were really to be destructed, it would be destructed not despite of, but because of its success.

If the threat does not come from amongst ourselves, it can very well come from the outside. While browsing the Internet we don’t worry about what’s happening in the center of our galaxy or on the surface of the sun. Getting used to seeing the sun rises every morning at a precise and predictable time makes us forget that the earth is actually floating in a violent and brutal universe filled with random comets and asteroids. Space Weather, for example, can have great impact on the global communication system, which could potentially put the entire global connectivity at the mercy of space. Not long ago in 1998, several satellites blacked out simultaneously because of a sun flare and many services went down instantly such as web pages and TV channels. Add to that, 12 satellites so far have been lost because of space weather, ESA (2004:05).

We are affected by the sun’s mood whether we like it or not. We can be subject to a future massive solar flare just like we are subject to the sun’s rays. The most gigantic one, known as the Carrington Flare, took place in 1859. It crippled the telegraphic communication all across North America and Europe. Computer engineers and space physicists are well aware of what a solar flare the size of Carrington would do to today’s extremely vulnerable communication infrastructure.

A major solar event could theoretically melt down the whole Internet. What earthquakes, bombs, and terrorism cannot do might be accomplished in moments by a solar corona. Eagleman (2012) 

Electromagnetic storms are very common too. Quebec’s power went down in 1989 for 9 hours because of one — affecting 6 million people’s lives. The cause of this geomagnetic storm was a Coronal Mass Ejection from the sun that took place on March 9th, 1989 and did not reach earth until 4 days after. From the micro perspective, IBM estimates that there is a new software error every month in every 256 MB of computer RAM caused by cosmic rays (Ziegler and Lanford, 1979:19-40, Tom 2008) despite the earth’s magnetic shield. These cosmic rays are unstoppable charged particles with high energies originating from the depth of space or the center of the Milky Way.

Now with the increase of chips miniaturization (Moore’s law), errors are expected to increase (Tom, 2008) since electronic components will increasingly be affected by cosmic rays. Let alone the worst-case scenario if the flux of cosmic rays increased. This confirms the weak spot communication technologies have vis-à-vis outer space. The earth magnetic field, which serves as a shield that protects the earth from violent solar flares, has been weakened the past decade. This is because the earth, as some scientists believe, is at the verge of a probable pole magnetic reversal (Wicherink, 2008:150), which is not an unprecedented event in the long history of earth. Thus, the current weak magnetic field and the vulnerability of our global communication infrastructure put the Internet at a greater risk of disappearing. On-going events of space weather can be predicted but only a few days ahead, and there isn’t much we can about them.

The Internet can be damaged in different ways. If the damage is not physical it could be virtual. Cyber-warfare and cyber-terrorism aren’t fictional concepts but real ones. Because the Internet will own every bit, and because every datum is connected to one single organism, the whole thing is at the risk of disappearing in bulk and at once. One single virus might have the potential of damaging every bit connected to the gigantic web.

We are living in a digital age in which any new piece of information is primarily poured into the internet, if not born in it already, before being committed to paper. In that sense, Internet is not a bunch of wires and servers connecting people, but there is more to it than just that. The Internet has become humanity’s huge database that hosts human knowledge. It follows that whatever harms the Internet would inevitably lead to the loss of human knowledge.

Ironically, one important consequence of the shift to digital publishing is that it leads to a potential loss of knowledge. Curt Rice (2013). 

Such a horrible event is not unprecedented in human history. Civilizations, such as the antediluvian civilizations, lost a massive wealth of knowledge in the remote prehistory (Bauval and Graham, 1996). Even more recently, a similar event took place in Alexandria with the destruction of the Royal Library of Alexandria (391 AD), which was the hub of knowledge in the ancient world.

The Internet has proved to be efficient in processing and storing human knowledge, yet it hasn’t proved to be stable, permanent, or sustainable. The only reasonable way to store human knowledge is to diversify the means of storage, which is not something being seriously taken into consideration. Gathering and centralizing human knowledge into the-binary-system medium isn’t a cleaver idea. With all due respect to Claude Shannon, a backup storage with a medium of a different nature should be going in parallel; books for example.

Why are we in a state of heedlessness about the probability that the Internet may not be around in the future? Is it because we never contemplate the idea of a world without Internet although it always used to be the case? When asked the question: “What is life to you without internet?” some people responded: Life then would be “without colors,” “very slow,” “tasteless,” “lifeless,” or “I would feel locked up in a cell.” According to these sorts of reactions, which may be the case for the majority, life seems nihilistic without Internet. Is it possible that the Internet has given new meaning to life? Probably, because it seems as if the Internet has shifted from being ‘a means’ to being ‘an end’ in itself, and the slogan nowadays has become, “I am on-line therefore I am”. It seems we are putting our entire human worth and essence into a lifeless machine. Freezing all that is vital in us into ‘…01001010110…’

The Internet has empowered people; it has empowered nations, bridged gaps and brought the world together. However it is now being used to tear the world apart. Bilal Khalid (2012)

All in all, what does this change? What sort of attitude should we adopt if we were to approach Internet as something temporary in our life in particular, and in human history in general?

Consciousness

Scientist Demonstrates Fascinating Evidence of Precognitive Dreaming

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Stanley Krippner explains one of his most interesting science experiments regarding precognitive dreaming. Dreams and predicting the future, in many controlled cases, have gone hand in hand.

  • Reflect On:

    What can our dreams tell us about the future? Are they picking up on potential timelines? How can we use them to better our lives? Perhaps different dreams have different meanings? Perhaps we can learn to use our dreams for our benefit?

The world of dreams is a mystery to all. We dream every night when we go to sleep, though sometimes we remember our dreams and sometimes we do not. It can be a lot of fun to relay your dreams to friends and coworkers the next day, but often their significance is only perceptible to yourself and you end up boring your audience with a long, drawn-out recall of the previous night’s adventures.

Have you ever woken up from a dream so real that you were overcome with whatever emotion had been triggered in the dream, such as sadness, anger, bliss, or excitement? How about waking up with a huge sigh of relief that it was only a dream? Dreams can seem so real to our minds that our bodies actually respond as if they were.

Despite all our years of studying and trying to interpret dreams, the age-old question remains, what is the significance of dreams and do they actually mean anything in relation to waking life? Many people dismiss dreams as random thoughts formulated from the subconscious mind, but what about the concept of precognitive dreams — dreams about events or experiences that haven’t yet occurred, but end up taking place at a later point in reality? The very notion goes against what we know to be true of time and relativity; if time is linear, then precognitive dreams simply cannot be possible.

Is It Possible To Accurately Dream About The Future?

Dr. Stanley Krippner, Professor of Psychology at Saybrook University, has devoted his life to the research and experimentation of parapsychology, precognitive dreaming, and shamanism for the past forty years. He claims that this phenomenon of precognitive dreaming is not only possible, but his research can back it up. In an interview with Geraldine Cremine of Vice Motherboard, Krippner explained one of his most significant laboratory studies on precognitive dreaming:

Each night, the subject dreamer would go through an ordinary night of dreaming, with an intent to dream about an experience he would have the following morning. The dreamer was woken 4-5 times throughout the night to relay his dreams to an experimenter. The following mornings, experimenters randomly selected an experience from a number of prearranged options, and the dreamer was subjected to that experience. Dr. Krippner said there was no way for the participants to know what experience they would encounter before it was selected and administered.

The following is a specific example of a dreamer who, one night, had several dreams about birds in various different settings and circumstances. The following morning, the dreamer was exposed to one of the experiences selected at random. “The experience was to have him sit with earphones on,” Dr. Krippner said. “And what was played? Bird calls. He was also played a video. And what was played? Pictures of birds.” After the experiment, which lasted 8 days, was over, outside judges who were not a part of the original experiment were called in to determine the dreams of the dreamers versus the experiences they were subjected to upon waking. For each participant, the judges were able to find at least one match between a dream and the random experience on most nights of the experiment.

Even if we were to accept — at least for argument’s sake — that this phenomenon of precognitive dreaming is possible, we are still left wanting an explanation. And unfortunately, we simply don’t have one yet.

What we do know is that the unconscious mind is capable of having deep revelations during the rapid eve movement (REM) state of sleep, aka: the dream state. One example of such a revelation occurred in 1865, when chemist Frederich August Kekulé was struggling to understand how atoms in the benzene molecule were arranged. After wrestling with the problem for some time, he fell asleep and dreamt about a snake biting its own tail. Through this image, he conceived the benzene ring, revolutionizing organic chemistry in the process. But people come to much more mundane understandings during sleep all the time, as I’m sure you yourself have on one or more occasions, perhaps explaining where the phrase, I’ll sleep on it comes from.

Could Quantum Physics Be The Answer?

Quantum physics offers one theory for precognitive dreams, suggesting that during the uninhibited state of REM, the brain may be capable of identifying some kind of a signal that we aren’t aware of in our conscious state. These signals could assist with awareness of the future. This idea links to theories of quantum entanglement and the idea that two separate particles or points in time can interact as if connected to one another despite being spatially separated.

Dr. Krippner himself elaborated on how quantum physics could potentially explain  precognitive dreaming. “Quantum events happen on a different time scale to what most people live and experience in the West,” he explained. “We have this understanding of time that is: ‘past, present, future.’ But quantum physics gives you a different concept of time.” He says that these same concepts are found throughout the many indigenous cultures he studied during his research into precognitive dreaming and shamanism:

Many indigenous people see time going in a circle; it goes around and around and it’s a spiral. “Then you also have the indigenous North American point of view that people lived in a ‘long body’; they do not end where their skin ends. A person’s long body projects and involves other people and other parts of nature, so everything is happening all at once. For them it’s no surprise that you can dream about the future.

Precognitive & Lucid Dreams

Precognitive dreams are fairly common phenomena and many people have reported experiencing them, including some famous people throughout history, like Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain. While researching this topic I also came across some interesting information on lucid precognitive dreams – the notion that you could actually intend to see into the future by being conscious in your dream and asking questions such as: What are Saturday’s winning lottery numbers?; What will be the best performing stock tomorrow? and so on… Trying this out for yourself could help prove that it works, and would be a fun experiment at the very least.

The Takeaway

Dreams are a mystical experience to all who have them, and I think it’s safe to say that few people aren’t at least curious about their nightly adventures. Have you had any dreams you would consider precognitive? Ultimately, dreams can be a great tool for reflection and contemplation regarding our own life. It’s interesting to interpret them, and perhaps no one can really do that but ourselves, because no one else can really feel what it feels like to have your dream. It’s interesting because we don’t really pay attention to them, and are not really taught to do so and thus we usually brush them off as ‘not real.’ Perhaps there are some deeper meanings here that we’re missing?

The Builder Of NASA’s Apollo Communications Systems Blows The Whistle On Extraterrestrials

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Maurice Chatelain designed and built NASAs Apollo communication systems. He wrote a book detailing his experience with the Apollo programs, and said that all of the missions experienced UFO activity and other strange anomalies.

  • Reflect On:

    It seems that there is an overwhelming amount of witness testimony from insiders, how has this gone ignored for so long, and how come all of these people never get any attention or air-time like the ones who don't speak about it?

His name is  Maurice Chatelain, if you look him up on Google, you may not find much. IMDB states that he is usually identified as a “former NASA Chief of Communications,” especially by UFOlogists, other sources claim he was merely “a low-level engineer who worked for a NASA sub-contractor.”

Obviously, whoever wrote this has poor research skills, one needs to look no further than his book, Our Ancestors Came From Outer Spaceto find a description of his life and what he’s experienced. From here, a researcher would go about looking for confirmations outside of his own claims. Chatelain’s details about his career and his designs that he mentions in his book can be found online, we’ll get to that in a bit.

Chatelain was a telecommunication, telemetry and communication electronics specialist, and during his time, perhaps the best in the world at what he did. After he moved to America from Europe decades ago, he spent the next twenty years of his life working for a number of aerospace organizations and industries and was also supported by the United States Navy, the United States Air Force, and NASA. He was even reimbursed by the United States government for the cost of moving his family to the United States.

In his book, he details his various patents and designs for the companies that he worked for, and the organizations his designs attracted. You can view a list of his patents here. As you can see, these are just a few of his many contributions to the field.

In his book, he goes on to explain in great detail how through his work and his connections he was immediately offered the task of designing and building the Apollo communication and data-processing system. He also explains how nobody specified his duties or functions, because no one at that time knew what these systems would be like. There were very few experts in the field.

Chatelain was in charge of all of what he mentions below:

advertisement - learn more

“When the Apollo project started, there was no communication equipment powerful enough or sensitive enough to make voice transmission possible from earth to moon, not to mention trans- mission of television pictures over that distance. Such things had to be invented, perfected, and built. Relay stations had to be in- stalled all around the globe in the Tropics with parabolic dish antennas, some over 200 feet in diameter, in such a way that one or two of them would always be in contact with any Apollo spacecraft orbiting around the moon. All these stations had to be in contact with each other and all of them had to report to the Apollo Space Flight Center in Houston, Texas. All the new equipment, built by some twenty different suppliers from all parts of the United States, had to be co-ordinated and made compatible.”

It’s interesting to think about these things. When contemplating the Apollo missions, it’s not often we think about the tremendous amount of work that went into it by so many men and women. Many of them, like Chatelain, go practically unknown as the focus is always on the astronauts, who themselves have also been quite outspoken and have corroborated Chatelain’s disclosures.

The famous Leonard Nimoy featured Chatelain in one of his documentaries regarding ancient aliens, decades ago. He also verified his background, which has been done by many, by introducing him as a “NASA space scientist who helped man reach the moon.”  The film features other prominent minds and academics at the time. Chatelain is also referenced by many prominent UFO researchers.

He was also featured on what appears to be a French talk show, found on youtube.

So what did Chatelain have to say in his book regarding the Apollo missions?

“During these missions several strange things happened. Some still cannot be talked about and some I will mention without revealing my sources of information and with the utmost reserve, because I personally was not there when these incidents allegedly took place. It could be, for example, that both the American and the Russian space programs did bring back discoveries that were not anticipated.”

He goes on to state that most of the astronauts saw strange things during their mission that could not be discussed with anybody outside of NASA. Obviously, since the time of Chatelain, there are so many astronauts that have spoken up about what they saw and what they know. It seems that a large percentage of the Apollo astronauts have all made such comments. Apollo 14 Dr. Edgar Mitchell expressed that he had knowledge of extraterrestrial visitation, and that there have been “crashed craft and bodies recovered.” Gordon Cooper, part of the very first manned mission to space, said the same thing.

Dr. Brian O’Leary is another, who admitted to there being “abundant evidence” existing for the fact that we are being contacted. Story Musgrave, another, Apollo 12 astronaut Al Worden shared his thoughts on the matter not long ago. He stated his belief that our ancestors came from outer space, it’s funny because that’s the title of Chatelain’s book.  The list doesn’t end there, but I’ll stop.

It’s not just astronauts, it’s scientists from within these organizations as well, like Dr. John Brandenburg, the Deputy Manager for the Clementine mission to the moon, and Norman Bergrun, a veteran Ames Research Scientists and a key member of the Voyager missions. I recently wrote an article about Bergrun and what he has exposed, you can read more about that here, it shows a picture of a giant UFO hovering just outside Saturn’s outer ring.

Chatelain goes on to write,

 It is very difficult to obtain any specific information from NASA, which still exercises a very strict control over any disclosure of these events. It seems that all Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin—flying saucers, or UFOs (unidentified THE APOLLO SPACECRAFT VJ flying objects), if you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered absolute silence.

He provides specific examples that he’s aware of,

“The following year, on November 12, 1966, James Lovell and Edwin Aldrin in Gemini 12 also saw two UFOs at slightly over half a mile from the capsule. These were observed for quite some time and photographed repeatedly. The same happened to Frank Borman and James Lovell in Apollo 8 on Christmas Eve 1968, and to Thomas Stafford and John Young aboard Apollo 10 on May 22, 1969. The UFOs showed up both during the orbit around the moon and on the homeward flight of Apollo 10.”

Below is a picture from Ex Command Sergeant Major, Bob Dean, who was good friends with Bergrun (mentioned above). He supposedly obtained some pictures that NASA had locked away. It comes from this lecture.

Corroboration

Having been an avid researcher in the field for quite some time, and I am sure many others will tell you this, it’s not uncommon at all to come across similarities and stories that intersect among multiple ‘credible’ sources. For example, in his book, Chatelain also mentions nuclear weapons testing on the Moon.

“There was even some talk that the Apollo 13 mission carried a nuclear device aboard that could be set off to make measurements of the infrastructure of the moon and whose detonations would show on the charts of several recording seismographs l8 placed in different locations. The unexplained explosion of an oxygen tank in the service module of Apollo 13 on its flight to the moon, according to rumors, was caused deliberately by a UFO that was following the capsule to prevent the detonation of the atomic charge that could possibly have destroyed or endangered some moon base established by extraterrestrials. Well, there was a lot of talk and there still is.”

This is interesting, because decades after Chatelain wrote his book, Colonel Lorin Ross Dedrickson, assigned to the US Atomic Energy Commission, and a man who had a long service with the Energy Commission between 1950-1958 which included, contract administration duties at Nevada test sites, Pacific Nuclear Test Area west of Hawaii, nuclear weapon manufacturing and quality assurance in Albuquerque, and inspection of nuclear and non-nuclear facilities throughout the country.

He stated the same thing, that we tried to send a nuclear weapon to the Moon, and he also references Apollo 13,

“A spacecraft went to the rescue of Apollo 13, and they accompanied Apollo 13 on their voyage around the Moon back to Earth. And on two occasions they thought they might have to transfer the crew to their spacecraft, but they saw them safely back to Earth.”

He also stated,

“I also learned about incidents involving nuclear weapons, and among these incidents were a couple of nuclear weapons sent into space were destroyed by the extraterrestrials. . . . At the very end of the 70s and the early 80s, we attempted to put a nuclear weapon on the moon and explode it for scientific measurements and other things, which was not acceptable to the extraterrestrials. They destroyed the weapon before it got to the moon.”

Is there any documentation to support these claims? Yes,  a declassified report by the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center from June 1959 shows just how seriously they considered the plan, called Project A119. In general, they wanted to investigate the capability of weapons in space, as well as gain further insight into the space environment and the detonation of nuclear devices within it. It seems that they did, and obviously the public would not know that the US is taking a nuclear weapon to space, it would be classified.

UFOs and nuclear weapons go hand in hand, that’s another topic in itself which you can read more about here.

Chatelain also describes extraterrestrial encounters of the moon, and code words used to describe extraterrestrial spacecraft, like Santa Claus. He is not the only insider to do so either.

You can read more about that here: They’re Parked on The Side of the Crater – They’re Watching US!” – When Neil Armstrong Landed On The Moon

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is to really recognize just how much witness testimony we’ve had come out over the decades from credible sources. Furthermore, it’s 2018, we now have physical evidence, electrooptical data and radar trackings to go along with it. We know we are not alone, and it’s stories like these that have been wrongfully kept from humanity. Transparency, exploration and discovery, and truth, is not something which should be denied to the human race, it’s our birthright.

It’s hard to tell what’s going on sometimes, but at the end of the day, it’s quite clear that something is. This is a topic where one must remain skeptical, especially of mainstream media and the way they do and will cover it.

The truth is out there!

Earth, Water, Air & Fire: Why Is The Fifth Element (Aether) Completely Ignored?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple sources show how what we call "Dark Matter" might actually represent the quantum vacuum, a 'substance' that could make up the large majority of our universe. Yet it's an invisible Force: massless, neither solid nor liquid.

  • Reflect On:

    We are currently going through the next scientific revolution, where non-material science is getting stronger, and alongside quantum physics, it's showing an understanding that we live in a metaphysical world, where consciousness is key.

What is dark matter? The mainstream refers to it as a ‘hypothetical’ form of matter, and this rhetoric seems to dominate academia, despite many academics and others demonstrating that non-material substances like ‘dark matter’ should be considered as an actual form of matter. But we continue to be held back by ‘authoritative’ sources like NASA, which I like to refer to as Never A Straight Answer:

More is unknown than is known. We know how much dark energy there is because we know how it affects the universe’s expansion. Other than that, it is a complete mystery. But it is an important mystery. It turns out that roughly 68% of the universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 27%. The rest – everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter – adds up to less than 5% of the universe. Come to think of it, maybe it shouldn’t be called “normal” matter at all, since it is such a small fraction of the universe.

Empty Space Is Not Empty

Other sources postulate that it makes up 90 percent of our reality, and it makes sense. Just look at the atom, the smallest observable piece of matter, it’s what everything else is made up of. An atom is almost all empty space, more than 99 percent of it to be exact. The kicker? That empty space is not useless, and from what we know now, “empty space” is really not “empty” at all. This is why I’ve stressed the importance in many of my previous articles of this quote from theoretical physicist John Wheeler: “No point is more central than this, that space is not empty, it is the seat of the most violent physics.”

If you’ve looked into dark matter, you might also be aware that what scientists refer to as the quantum vacuum might be mistaken for dark matter, or ‘dark energy.’ But we don’t hear about this im mainstream channels.

Space is actually not empty and it’s full of energy…The energy in space is not trivial, there’s a lot of it and we can actually calculate how much energy there is in that space and that reality might actually come out of it. Everything we see is actually emerging from this space. – Nasim Haramein

This idea was illustrated decades ago with the “Casimir Effect,” which demonstrates what’s called zero-point energy. Today, we are beginning to see that these concepts are not just theoretical, but instead, very practical. (source)(source) This is why it’s interesting to point out how multiple scientists, over the past little while, have been expressing the idea that what we call “Dark Matter” might actually be mistaken for this ‘zero-point energy.’

Take for an example, this Defense Intelligence Agency unclassified document entitled “Warp Drive, Dark Energy & The Manipulation of Extra-Dimensions,” written and prepared for the agency by senior research physicist Richard K. Obousky, Ph.D. and Eric W. Davis, Ph.D. Again, the existence of the vacuum is not seen as trivial:

When it comes to dark energy being mistaken the document states the following:

The key phrases here are: “We do not understand why it exists or how it is created; we simply know it provides an ever-present force on spacetime, causing the universe to expand. Indeed, recent high-precision experimental observations indicate dark energy may be a cosmological vacuum energy.”

Some Call It The Ether

Nikola Tesla was very well aware of this substance/force at the turn of the 20th Century:

All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha, or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life-giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena.” – Nikola Tesla, Man’s Greatest Achievevent, 1907

He was one of many, in fact, who had been contemplating the ether and its relation to what we perceive as physical material matter. In ancient times, Plato referred to the ether. This is from his work Phaedo:

“And upon the Earth are animals and men, some in a middle region, others (elementals) dwelling about the air as we dwell about the sea; others in islands which the air flows round, near the continent; and in a word, the air is used by them as the water and the sea are by us, and the ether is to them what the air is to us.”

And here is another interesting quotation from this ancient text:

And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied; “Of elements.”

“Are there then four?” he asked.

“Not four,” said Larchas,  “but five.” “

And how can there be a fifth,” said Apollonius, “alongside of water and air and earth and fire?”

“There is the ether.”

Even Rene Descartes proposed the theory that “space,” (what we perceive as empty space) is completely filled with matter in various states. There is evidence to suggest he was executed by the Church because his science entered into the realm of metaphysics.

Tewari’s Space Vortex Threory

What Descartes hypothesized is exactly what quantum physics is examining today:

A century from now, it will be well known that: the vacuum of space which fills the universe is itself the real substratum of the universe; vacuum in a circulating state becomes matter; the electron is the fundamental particle of matter and is a vortex of vacuum with a vacuum-less void at the center and it is dynamically stable; the speed of light relative to vacuum is the maximum speed that nature has provided and is an inherent property of the vacuum; vacuum is a subtle fluid unknown in material media; vacuum is mass-less, continuous, non viscous, and incompressible and is responsible for all the properties of matter; and that vacuum has always existed and will exist forever….Then scientists, engineers and philosophers will bend their heads in shame knowing that modern science ignored the vacuum in our chase to discover reality for more than a century. – Tewari

The words above come from the late Parahamsa Tewari, who recently had a paper published in Physics Essays. The paper is entitled “Structural Relation Between The Vacuum Space and The Electron. You can access the full study here. Tewari also points out that dark matter has been mistaken for what it really is, as he describes in his “Space Vortex Theory”:

The sketch below shows the Earth enclosed within a vacuum vortex. Unlike the ongoing concepts of vacuum to be “empty space”, “nothing-ness” and “Void-ness”, the Space Vortex Theory (SVT) defines the absolute vacuum to be a mass-less, continuous and incompressible fluid. The velocity fields in the underneath substratum (shown through directional arrows) create invisible forces to rotate the massive Earth around its axis and also carry the Moon in its orbit.

While the Earth is visible, the vacuum vortex substratum is invisible. This invisible substratum of cosmic energy, underneath and around the Earth, is mistakenly called “dark matter”. All planets and stars have similar vacuum vortices that rotate them axially. The vortices enclosing the galaxies impart axial rotation to their cores, as also the stars in them are carried in orbits. [Rene Descartes, the French mathematician and philosopher, predicted an Earth vortex and cosmic vortices of property-less fluid (Ether) in the 17th Century].

This paper presents a formulation of Absolute Principles for vacuum-space that enable revealing the process of creation of a stable electron and its known properties of mass and charge. Fundamental questions on the electron’s charge and mass are derived from first principles from the vacuum vortex of the electron’s structure. Also, generation of electrostatic, electromagnetic, and gravitational fields are shown to arise from the vacuum vortex structure of the electron. The electron and positron have been pinpointed to be the fundamental particles of matter.

The interesting part about Tewari is that, from his theory, he took it out of the theoretical realm by generating machinery based on the science, in the form of an electrical generator. A prototype of the machine was tested by Kirloskar Electric, a manufacturer of electrical generators in India. There, it exhibited 165% efficiency (over-unity), breaking our known laws of physics. You can watch a video of the machine here and you will see a demonstration of the machine as well as discussions toward the end of the video with the engineers at Kirloskar Electric.

Implications About Our Understanding Of Reality

The crazy thing is that it could explain where reality comes from; according to these scientists and others, it comes from ‘the ether.’ Perhaps consciousness is the next piece of the puzzle, but one thing is for certain, this goes well beyond the big bang theory.

Ether has got to be, once again, established, then there will be the meaningful understanding of physics, meaningful understanding of metaphysics, and meaningful understanding of spiritual processes.” – Tewari (source)

This kind of science is huge and represents what we’re currently in right now, the next scientific revolution: the acknowledgement of non-material science and its empirical validation of spirituality and metaphysics. This is not theoretical stuff, it’s showing that we live in a spiritual world and our reluctance to accept this simple premise comes from the fact that we’ve been hit with the scientific dogma for a long time, preventing us from being open to ‘new’ concepts of reality that almost went lost but are once again discovering.

This phrase Idham thadhakshare parame vyoman comes from ancient Vedic scripture, and it means “the aakaash is not destructible, it is the primordial absolute substratum that creates cosmic matter.
