Collective Evolution’s Arjun Walia spoke to Pradeep B. Deshpande, Professor Emeritus and former Chair of Chemical Engineering at the University of Louisville, Visiting Professor of Management, Gatton College of Business & Economics, University of Kentucky, and President and CEO, Six Sigma and Advanced Controls, Inc.
- For the benefit of our readers, how is the ultimate reality defined?
To borrow a line of reasoning from Amanda Gefter’s path-breaking book, “Trespassing on Einstein’s Lawn”, the ultimate reality is that which persists even after everything physical in the universe has vanished. It is that which is always there even before the beginning of time, uniform, same everywhere, and does not vary from observer to observer and perspective to perspective.
- So, what is the ultimate reality?
After an effort spanning a decade or more for her book which included interactions with some of the best known physicists of our time including Stephen Hawking, Gefter concluded, ‘Ultimately, nothing is real’, that is, the ultimate reality is the nothingness of the void when the universe was about the size of Planck’s length (10-33 cm in diameter) at the moment of the Big Bang.
- What is the nature of the ultimate reality?
Renowned theoretical physicist the late John Archibald Wheeler told Gefter at the Science and Ultimate Reality Conference in 2002 in Princeton that the universe was a self-excited circuit. Inspired by the work of Adi Shankara and Nisarga Datta, Jim Kowall, a triple-board certified physician with a doctorate in theoretical physics used certain concepts from theoretical physics and logic concluding that the nature of ultimate reality cannot be anything else but consciousness which he termed undifferentiated consciousness.
- So, which perspective is a better representation?
From Prof. Wheeler’s perspective, something, the universe, came out of nothing as the universe was a self-excited circuit. If this view is adopted, then the mystery of the beginning of the universe and the mystery of life are wholly independent but if Jim’s perspective is taken as a hypothesis for scrutiny, then there are some exciting possibilities. In particular, the hypothesis leads to a scientific framework for world transformation and peace that is detailed in the book. On the side, reflect on the ancient Indian saying, Purusha (metaphor of Shiva) is a potentiality but it needs Prakrati (metaphor of Adi Shakti) for creation.
- Is it possible to prove Dr. Kowall’s hypothesis, undifferentiated consciousness created the universe?
To examine the hypothesis, we must conduct scientific experiments and show that everything remains connected to everything else just as it was at the moment of the Big bang when the universe was about the size of Planck’s length. Western scientists have successfully conducted such experiments in at least as far as the connectedness of human beings is concerned. These experiments were made possible in part by the discovery of the DNA which allowed scientists to locate living DNA remotely and examine if there was something within us that had an effect on the remotely located DNA. That ‘something’ turned out to be emotions!
- Could you give our readers an example of these experiments?
On YouTube, there is a video clip of an experiment with 32 Metronomes that are in a sense connected although not physically linked. The readers will see that within minutes the metronomes synchronize indicating that they are sharing some form of energy. There are also experiments which show that the heart rates of a group of subjects meditating or engaged in prayer synchronize to a great extent in short order. These experiments imply that our differentiated consciousness may well be a microcosm of the undifferentiated consciousness.
- OK, so where does this take us?
If in fact our differentiated consciousness is a microcosm of the undifferentiated consciousness of the void and since the latter created the universe, then, we too must possess a capacity to create. This is consistent with the ancient Indian proverbs, Aham Brahmasmi (I am a creator) or So Hum (I am that). Using this line of reasoning, if we can demonstrate this capacity to create physical reality from nonphysical phenomenon (consciousness, intention, emotions, vibrations), then the hypothesis that the undifferentiated consciousness created the universe strengthens but it would be exceedingly difficult, may be even impossible, to prove it with an absolute certainty.
- What do I need to understand before setting out to prove that I am a creator?
First, we need to understand the fundamentals of yoga, meaning to connect, and not the bone-bending physical exercises that have come to be known as yoga in the West. It is heartening that there is now an UN International Yoga Day, June 21st that came into being at the behest of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014 with the support of over 175 nations. Now, if everyone understood the real meaning of yoga and how to practice it, then surely the world will become more peaceful.
Second, to connect to the undifferentiated consciousness requires two things: (i) positive emotions, (ii) a process with which to connect. We humans possess two types of emotions: Positive emotions (unconditional love, kindness, empathy, compassion) and negative emotions (anger, hatred, hostility, resentment, fear, sorrow, frustration, despair, etc.). Individuals who are endowed with abundant positive emotions may be thought of as having a high level of internal excellence. Such individuals suffer only minor, short-term disturbances in their internal conditions when highly taxing external conditions occur.
- Where do our emotional traits come from?
Just as we inherit genetic traits from our ancestors, we may also inherit some negative psychoemotional traits (e. g., depression, hypertension, etc.). We compound our problems by our own actions from adolescence to the current age. Success in connecting to the undifferentiated consciousness requires that these negative psychoemotional traits must be wiped clean and replaced with abundant positive emotions.
- Are our emotions related to our base nature?
The two are strongly correlated. Just as we have two types of emotions, the 6 ½ billion of us also have three components of the mindset: (1) S: Truthfulness, honesty, steadfastness, equanimity, (2) R: Attachment, ego, ambition, greed, desire to live, and (3) T: Lying, cheating, inflicting injury in words or deed, and sleep. In this scheme of things, every human being has a certain minimum amount of S, R, and T required for life. A little reflection will reveal that the S component is positively and strongly correlated to positive emotions while the R and T components are strongly and positively correlated with negative emotions. Just as positive and negative emotions lead to a scale of internal excellence, so do the S, R, T components. On either scale, the pursuit of connecting to the undifferentiated consciousness is equivalent to a desire to rise of the scale of internal excellence.
- So, it sounds fairly straightforward, track our emotions diligently, harness positive emotions and avoid negative emotions and I can connect.
That is partially correct. A simple thirty-day experiment will convince anyone that the conscious approach falls short of expectation. We also need a process whose side-effect is a rise in positive emotions at the expense of negative emotions and such a process is meditation. Meditation has the power to connect an individual’s consciousness to the undifferentiated consciousness.
- What sort of additional evidence can you offer that meditation can materialize intentions?
At my request, Sanjeev Aroskar, a friend and an Electronics & Computers graduate of the well-known Indian Institute Technology, Mumbai, gathered a group of six meditators in Pune a few years ago and demonstrated that it was possible to lift from the ground from a crossed-legged sitting position. The meditation practice included an explicit intention to lift from the ground. The evidence was recorded on my IPhone camera. The experiment is further detailed in the book. That said, the intention most worthy of materialization is a rise in the level of internal excellence.
- Can internal excellence be measured?
Yes, but only inferentially. Any scientific inquiry must have measurable outcomes or else it becomes just another interesting philosophy. Prof. Konstantin Korotkov, Professor of Biophysics, Mechanics, and Computers at St. Petersburg Federal University in Russia developed a scientific device based on the gas discharge visualization (GDV) principle over fifteen years ago. The device involves a painless, noninvasive, and almost instantaneous measurement to estimate the physiological and psychoemotional state of the subject at a high confidence level. The GDV device was approved by the Russian Health Ministry for use as a routine medical diagnostic device in Russian hospitals and doctor’s offices. I have published extensive data on myself showing that meditation enhances positive psychoemotional traits and thus, internal excellence which I can experientially attest to.
- What are the benefits of connecting to the undifferentiated consciousness with meditation?
Even partial success leads to a myriad of benefits: Health & wellness, creativity, and innovativeness, exemplary performance in all walks of life including business and academic performance, better leadership decisions, and less discord and violence. There are a large number individuals throughout the history of India and elsewhere who bear testimony to the truthfulness of this assertion. In recent years, prestigious science publications such as Nature, Science, Pro. Nat. Sci. Acad.-US all have carried full-length articles on the benefits of meditation. A quick Google search will produce a long list of Nobel laureates, famous CEOs, and scientists who are regular meditators and who credit some of their successes to meditation.
- How do we extend the benefits of meditation to the larger segment of society?
Here, we have to take advantage of the Maharishi effect, named after the late Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Maharishi continues to have thousands of followers who include the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, George Stephanopoulos, Peter Lynch, renowned physicist and three-time presidential nominee, John Hagelin, among many others. The Maharishi effect says that a relatively small number of meditators can bring about peace in a much larger segment of the society. Following this principle, Dr. Hagelin and associates conducted experiments in Washington, DC in the eighties demonstrating that 4,000 meditators were sufficient to bring down the crime rate of the entire DC metropolitan area. The experiment was successfully repeated in the Middle East.
- Does this mean eternal global peace is possible?
Not quite, and the reason is this. The S, R, T components of societies undergo transformation over time due to reasons that we cannot quite comprehend. As the average S component of nation rises, that society rises but the S component cannot continue to rise indefinitely and when it reaches its peak, the T component gains prominence and the society begins to decline. The T component cannot rise indefinitely either and when it reaches its peak, the S component gains dominance and the society begins to rise again. As a consequence of this transformation of the S, R, T components, societies sustain repeated rise and decline. This has been true for thousands of years and will remain true for the foreseeable future. Since our specie did not evolve into humans at the same time, there are societies in the various stages of rise and decline present on the scene at any given time. Consequently, global peace ad infinitum is not possible. However, by adopting the scientific framework under discussion here, emerging nations can rise faster, nations in decline can change direction, and developed nations can keep their inevitable, eventual decline at bay longer and that will make the world more peaceful. This is the best possible scenario.
- Fascinating, so this is what you mean by transforming the world?
Actually, only partly so. From my perspective, world transformation has two parts to it: To make the world better and to make the world more peaceful. The ultimate reality book presents a scientific and auditable framework for internal excellence while the author’s companion book, Six Sigma for Karma Capitalism, SAC 2015 (also available on amazon) presents the wherewithal for a better world. What we have talked about so far is for a more peaceful world. The term ‘better’ refers to a scenario where all processes and transactions worldwide produce the least possible defects for the best possible performance and this requires a framework and an auditable methodology for external excellence. There are several quality initiatives available but my favorite is the national award-winning six sigma co-created at Motorola by Drs. Bill Smith and Mikel J. Harry in the late seventies.
- So, quality initiatives are sufficient for the best possible performance across the world in terms of defects?
This is a very interesting question. Several years ago, I made a shocking discovery: In the absence of an adequate level of internal excellence, the best quality initiatives do not produce the best possible performance in terms of defects. Add internal excellence to the mix and the performance can be further improved. So, to make the world better and more peaceful, both components of excellence, external and internal are required.
- It appears, businesses of all types need to have both components of excellence in place?
In my view, all companies in whatever line of business, manufacturing or service, need to embrace both components of excellence. The framework is amenable to an audit and therefore within a short span of four to six months, companies will be able to demonstrate for themselves the many benefits of the framework. Actually, the proof of concept is already on hand. Some of the references cited at the end of this interview lists several CEOs talking about the benefits of meditation for themselves and their companies.
- Meditation has been around for thousands of years. What is the necessity of a scientific framework?
It appears that humanity has become increasingly rational minded perhaps stung by Aristotle’s false claim of our Earth-centric existence in vogue till the time of Copernicus in the fifteenth century. The widespread acceptance and adoption of the ideas discussed here is possible only with a scientific framework.
- Sounds like we need to teach all this stuff in colleges and universities?
I wholly agree. Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders and it is absolutely essential to introduce these ideas in colleges so they do not graduate tunneled-visioned. I have done so in my six sigma class of the MBA program of the University of Kentucky at TEI/Piraeus in Athens, Greece I have been teaching for ten years and the student are loving it.
- Does meditation have a religious connotation?
Meditation is for everyone, of all faiths and also for those who profess no faith. Every human being has the same gift of capacity to learn but the desire to learn and openness of mind are choices and those are the biggest hurdle to progress.
- Does God exist according to the scientific framework?
Scientific inquiry cannot go beyond the notion of undifferentiated consciousness. However, many will marvel at the same evidence and conclude that God must exist while many will say, not so fast. The precious lessons I have drawn from the scientific framework are: (1) The purpose of all scriptures of all faiths is identical: To prod humanity to rise on the scale of internal excellence, (2) All incarnations, Son of God, Prophets have devoted their entire lifetimes in the pursuit of a single goal: To persuade humanity to rise on the scale of internal excellence.
- What are your thoughts on violence in the name of religion?
Since you and I share Indian ancestry, I start with the Hindu religion. Discrimination on the basis of caste has been a persistent problem for thousands of years although there is no mention in the Geeta that Varna distinctions can be inherited. In the epic Mahabharata, there is an episode which shows Sage Bhishma lying on a bed of arrows commenting to Karna, If I had not called you Shudra and not prevented you from participating in the sports arena, may be this Great War could have been avoided. He further goes on to say, in the Vedic times, Varna was determined by qualities, when this changed to the heredity-based caste system, no one knows.
Next, to Christians and inquisitions and crusades. Bible has not changed but there is no more violence in the name of Christianity. Finally, the current problem with terrorism. Islam is no more responsible for terrorism than Bible for inquisitions and crusades or the Geeta for caste discrimination. The root cause of violence in the name of religion is high R and T components.
- Thank you, this has been an interesting conversation.
I have enjoyed it as well. Thank you and Collective Evolution for this opportunity.

Banned By TED: Physicist Shares Information Deemed ‘Too Controversial’ By TED
*This is an older article we published which originated here at CE, with some updated information in it.
Russell Targ is a physicist and author, a pioneer in the development of the laser and laser applications, and a cofounder of the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) investigation of psychic abilities in the 1970s and 1980s. SRI is a research and development think tank in Menlo Park, California. Called remote viewing, his work in the psychic area has been published in Nature, The Proceedings of the Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers (IEEE), and the Proceedings of the American Association the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
Targ has a bachelor’s degree in physics from Queens College and did his graduate work in physics at Columbia University. He has received two National Aeronautics and Space- Administration awards for inventions and contributions to lasers and laser communications. In 1983 and 1984 he accepted invitations to present remote-viewing demonstrations and to address the USSR Academy of Science on this research.
He is author or co-author of nine books dealing with the scientific investigation of psychic abilities and Buddhist approaches to the transformation of consciousness, including Mind Reach: Scientists Look at Psychic Ability (with E. Harold Puthoff, 1977, 2005); Miracles of Mind: Exploring Nonlocal Consciousness and Spiritual Healing (with Jane Katra, 1998); and Limitless Mind: A Guide to Remote Viewing and Transformation of Consciousness (2004). He also wrote an autobiography, Do You See What I See: Memoirs of a Blind Biker, in 2008. His current book is The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities.
As a senior staff scientist at Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, Targ developed airborne laser systems for the detection of windshear and air turbulence. Having retired in 1997, he now writes books on psychic research and teaches remote viewing worldwide.
Below is a planned talk by Targ for TED that was cancelled by TED. Not surprisingly, some of the most interesting TED talks have been cancelled, author Graham Hancock’s “The War on Consciousness” was banned, and so was scientist Rupert Sheldrake’s, titled “The Science Delusion.”
When it comes to topics within the realms of parapsychology, like ESP, they often fiercely oppose the belief systems of many, despite the fact that publications in peer-reviewed scientific literature have examined this topic for more than a century, with some fascinating results.
Obviously there is something to this, otherwise the CIA and other agencies around the world would not devote decades of research to studying this topic in depth.
For more information on/from Russell Targ, please check out his website here.
Enjoy! Interesting stuff to say the least.
“In this $25 million program we used ‘remote viewing’ to find a downed Russian bomber in North Africa, for which President Carter commended us. We found a kidnapped US general in Italy, and the kidnap car that snatched Patricia Hearst. We looked in on the US hostages in Iran, and predicted the imminent release, who was soon sent to Germany. We described a Russian weapons factory in Siberia, leading to a US congressional investigation about weakness in US security, etc. Our scientific findings were published in Nature, The Proc, IEEE, Proc. AAAS, and Proc. American Institute of Physics. I thought a TED audience would find this recently declassified material interesting. And no physics would be harmed in my presentation.” (source/Cancelled TEDx Talk)
Third Eye Spies, The Feature Film Documentary Put Out By Targ
Third Eye Spies is a new documentary feature film by award winning director Lance Mungia. The film consists of compellingly cinematic re-enactments of actual remote viewings done at Stanford Research Institute for intelligence agencies. This includes amazing new data retrieved from recently declassified documents via the Freedom of Information Act, and over 30 interviews with every top player involved and how those discoveries are being used today.
Whether parapsychology is used to find your house keys, make money on Wall Street, read codewords at a secret NSA site, spy on foreign embassies, or find a kidnapped General or a bomber, the possibilities are endless. Russell Targ’s explained, “the evidence for extra sensory perception is overwhelming and shows a talent we all share and deserve to know about, leaves us not just with an understanding of this unique and unsung chapter in U.S. history, but perhaps most importantly a greater understanding of who we are.”

Why “Peer Reviewed” Science Continues To Lose A Lot of Credibility
- The Facts:
John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article titled "Why Most Published Research Findings Are False," which subsequently became the most widely accessed article in the history.
- Reflect On:
The corporate influence that has now taken over science. How much of our science is really legit? How much of it is false? How much of it is dogma?
Science today, in all fields, is plagued by corruption. Yet, more often than not, attempts to create awareness about scientific fraud — an issue that few journalists have been willing to address — are met with the response, “Well, is it peer-reviewed?”
Although good science should always be reviewed, using this label as a form of credibility can be dangerous, causing people to dismiss new information and research instantaneously if it doesn’t have it, particularly when that information counters long-held beliefs ingrained into human consciousness via mass marketing, education, and more.
Unfortunately, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that we are being lied to about the products and medicines we use on a daily basis.
If you’re one who commonly points to the “peer-reviewed” label, then you should know that there are many researchers and insiders who have been creating awareness about the problem with this label for years.
Who Says So? And From What Fields?
- Climate Science
Many people have spoken up against the corporatization and politicization of science. For example, Professor Lennart Bengtsson, a Swedish climatologist and former director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, has voiced his concern that some scientists are, according to an interview given to the Daily Mail, “mixing up their scientific role with that of climate activist.” He claims that there are multiple indicators for how “science is gradually being influenced by political views.” (source)
Professor Joanna D. Haigh, a British physicist, professor of atmospheric physics at Imperial College London, co-director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change, and former president of the Royal Meteorological Society, has also spoken up about the politicization of climate science. (source)
The Australian prime minister’s chief business advisor has done the same, and so have other politicians, like Senator James Inhofe, chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. You can read more about that story here.
Unfortunately, the mainstream vilifies such people, and to great effect.
Below is an excellent snippet of a lecture given by Richard Lindzen, one of the world’s top experts in the field and lead author of “Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks,” Chapter 7 of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Third Assessment Report on climate change. He knows that all climate science we receive is IPCC United Nations science. One of the scientists mentioned on the senator’s list, in this video, he talks about the politics of climate science and the manipulation of data — something that plagues all fields of science today.
- Medical Science/Health Science/Food
In the case of medicine, a lot of information has emerged showing just how much corruption really goes on. The Editors-in-Chiefs of several major medical journals have been quite blunt, with perhaps one of the best examples coming from Dr. Richard Horton, the current Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet, who says, “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.” (source)
Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), also considered one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world, alongside The Lancet, has said that “it is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” (source)
John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article titled “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False,” which subsequently became the most widely accessed article in the history of the Public Library of Science (PLoS). (source)
Here is another great quote:
“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”
– Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard professor of medicine and former Editor-in-Chief of The New England Medical Journal (source)
As you can see, this has been a problem for quite some time.
A Couple of Examples:
One of the best examples of political influence over scientific publication comes from an episode involving Genetically Modified Maize. Monsanto published a study a few years ago which purported to demonstrate the effects of GMO maize on rats over a 90 day period. They reported no ill effects on the rodents from this diet. Given the fact that there are no long term studies examining the health risks associated with GMOs, independent researchers then decided to conduct the same study, with one difference: Their study lasted over a year rather than a mere three months. Researchers found instances of severe liver and kidney damage, as well as hormonal disturbances, alongside the development of large tumours and mortality among the treatment groups. The study was published in November of 2012, in the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology, and then instantly retracted. After hundreds of scientists condemned the retraction, the U.S. did not publish it. The study was then re-published in multiple peer-reviewed scientific journals (in Europe last year ), like Environmental Sciences Europe. This is why it shouldn’t be a surprise that so many countries in Europe have banned the growing of genetically modified crops. Many also have bans and/or severe restrictions on importing GM products, citing health and environmental concerns.
This fact was also made clear by WikiLeaks documents:
Resistance to the advent of genetically modified foods has been pronounced across Europe. The continent features some of the strictest regulations governing the use and cultivation of GMO products, and public skepticism about biotech goods is quite high – a fact not lost on American diplomats. In a lengthy report dating from late 2007 , a cable issued by the State Department outlined its “Biotechnology Outreach Strategy, ‘which, among other things, recognized the European Union’s ‘negative views on biology’ and committed as a national priority to limiting them (O7STATE160639).
Initial attention paid to the State Department’s part in pushing industrial manufactures on its allies obscured the even bigger role it played in assuring a place for genetically modified agricultural products (GMOs) in a region that largely wanted nothing to do with them. The American campaign promoting biotech products was a worldwide effort. In all, some 1,000 documents from the Cablegate cache address this effort, a significant number of which originate in Europe. U.S. diplomats on the continent gave considerable attention to insuring the interests of American biotech firms in Europe – Whether through “education” programs, government lobbying, or outright coercion – as well as stripping down European Union regulations designed to act as a bugger against them. Available cables published by WikiLeaks suggest that the United States invests considerable time, effort, and expense in its operations on behalf of the American biotech firms.
Read more about it from The WikiLeaks Files: The World According To U.S. Empire.
In 1996, Steven M. Druker, being a public interest attorney and the Executive Director of the Alliance For Bio-Integrity, initiated a lawsuit in 1998 that forced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods.
He’s recently published a book on the lawsuit that provides details of his experience. He has also released the documents on his website, showing the significant hazards of genetically engineering foods and the flaws in the FDA’s policy.
- Pharmaceutical Drugs
There are a number of examples to choose from here, but antidepressants make the top of the list. Irving Kirsch, a lecturer in medicine at Harvard Medical School, published a study pointing out how “analyses of the published data and the unpublished data that were hidden by drug companies reveals that most (if not all) of the benefits are due to the placebo effect.” (source)
Another study published in the British Medical Journal by researchers at the Nordic Cochrane Center in Copenhagen showed that pharmaceutical companies were not disclosing all information regarding the results of their drug trials. Researchers looked at documents from 70 different double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) and serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI) and found that the full extent of serious harm in clinical study reports went unreported.
Tamang Sharma, a PhD student at Cochrane and lead author of the study, said: “We found that a lot of the appendices were often only available upon request to the authorities, and the authorities had never requested them. I’m actually kind of scared about how bad the actual situation would be if we had the complete data.” (source)
Another co-author of the study, Dr. Peter Gotzsche, who co-founded the Cochrane Collaboration (the world’s foremost body in assessing medical evidence), found in a separate analysis that 100,000 people in the United States die each year from the side effects of correctly used prescription drugs, noting that “it’s remarkable that nobody raises an eyebrow when we kill so many of our own citizens with drugs.” He has published many papers arguing that our use of antidepressants is causing more harm than good, and taking into consideration the recent leaks regarding these drugs, it seems he is correct.
Below is a brief video of him elaborating on this problem:
Vaccines are getting more attention now than ever before. In fact, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Chairman of the World Mercury Project (WMP), recently announced a $100,000 challenge aimed at putting an end to the inclusion of mercury, a neurotoxin that is 100 times more poisonous than lead, in vaccines administered in the U.S and globally.
It’s offered to anybody, including journalists and scientists, who can provide a study showing that it is safe to inject mercury into babies. This will be difficult, as hundreds of studies (that were also present at the press conference in print form) show it is absolutely unsafe, and can significantly increase the risk of developing neurodegenerative disorders.
You can read more about this here.
Multiple cases of vaccine fraud have been uncovered, but this is something you might not know given the fact that the mainstream media completely ignores these facts, and vaccines are heavily marketed.
For example, Lucija Tomljenovic, who has a PhD in biochemistry and is a senior postdoctoral fellow in UBC’s Faculty of Medicine, as well as a medical investigator, uncovered documents that reveal vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and health authorities have known about multiple dangers associated with vaccines but chose to withhold them from the public. (source)
But perhaps one of the biggest revelations in medical history, also unfortunately ignored by mainstream media, came only a couple of years ago and is still making noise, as it should.
Dr. William Thompson, a longtime senior CDC scientist, published some of the most commonly cited pro-vaccine studies, which showed that there was absolutely no link between the MMR vaccine and autism (Thompson, et al. 2007, Price, et al. 2010, Destefano, et al. 2004). However, Dr. Thompson recently admitted that it was “the lowest point” in his career when he “went along with that paper.” He went on to say that he and the other authors “didn’t report significant findings” and that he is “completely ashamed” of what he did. He was “complicit and went along with this,” and regrets that he has “been a part of the problem.” (source)(source)(source)
A study with revised information and no data omitted was published by Dr. Brian Hooker (a contact of Dr. Thompson) in the peer reviewed journal Translational Neurodegeneration, and it found a 340% increased risk of autism in African American boys receiving the Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. The study has since been retracted, around the same time this controversy arose.
You can read the full study here, although, unsurprisingly, it has since been retracted.
Thompson’s attorneys, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Bryan Smith of Morgan & Morgan, also released a statement from Dr. Thompson, which mentioned Hooker: “I have had many discussions with Dr. Brian Hooker over the last 10 months regarding studies the CDC has carried out regarding vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders. I share his belief that CDC decision-making and analyses should be transparent.” (source)
he had to invoke whistleblower protection and turned extensive agency files over to Congress. He said that, for the past decade, his superiors have pressured him and his fellow scientists to lie and manipulate data to conceal a causal link between vaccines and brain injuries, including autism.
As you can see, scientific fraud is a big problem across the board, and this article has only provided a few examples. The problem is not just with GMOs and vaccines — it affects cosmetics, food, cleaning supplies, and so much more. How have so many products, which cause so much harm, been approved by the agencies that are tasked to protect us?
There are so many books on this topic, but they don’t get the attention they deserve, since the major mainstream media shareholders are identical to those of the entire health industry. Why would they bash their own products on their own national television networks?
The power of corporate America has taken over almost every aspect of our lives. If you’re wondering what we can do about it, well, I believe the first step is awareness. There is still a plethora of information that the general public is completely unaware of, but if we backtrack to a decade ago, information that used to be considered a conspiracy is now simply fact. A great example is the corporate takeover of science, as discussed in this article, but another one could be the Snowden Leaks on mass surveillance, or 9/11. Studies are now being published by physicists and engineers regarding that event.
Awareness makes it harder for the elite to manipulate us. Once we become aware of something, we can stop it. For example, look at Genetically Modified Foods and the pesticides that go with them. As soon as the masses became aware of their dangers, they began to change their shopping habits. Now, most countries around the world have completely banned these foods.
It’s difficult to accept that there are unseen powers, motivated by their own greed and lust for power, that are doing us harm disguised as good. It is only when we become aware of how we are being harmed and change our shopping habits — hurting their bottom line — that they change their tactics. On the other hand, it’s encouraging to know that once we do come together for a common goal, anything can be accomplished, and we actually do have the potential and power to change our world.

5 Pioneering Scientists Who Were Spiritual Mystics
To excel in science and academia and become a person of significance in those areas requires thorough knowledge of the subject you’re studying. Indeed, being knowledgeable, analytical, and clever are some of the major criteria required to be considered intelligent in our highly detail-oriented and rigorous educational system.
But taking a closer look at what actually drives the success of our most revered minds tells a surprisingly different story.
Here is a list of five of the greatest scientific achievers of our time, who have contributed the most to humanity. While they may fit the above criteria for intelligence, they were also intensely spiritual people.
1. Albert Einstein
Considered by Western society to be one of the smartest men who ever lived, Einstein was a physicist who spent his entire career trying to understand the laws of the universe, eventually making major scientific breakthroughs which have shaped our world ever since. But what our history and science textbooks don’t tell us is that he owes his scientific achievements to things decidedly unscientific.
“The finest emotion of which we are capable is the mystic emotion. Herein lies the germ of all art and all true science. Anyone to whom this feeling is alien, who is no longer capable of wonderment and lives in a state of fear is a dead man. To know that what is impenetrable for us really exists and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, whose gross forms alone are intelligible to our poor faculties – this knowledge, this feeling . . . that is the core of the true religious sentiment. In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself among profoundly religious men.”
– Albert Einstein, letter to Hoffman and Dukas, 1946
2. Issac Newton
Issac Newton was the first to discover the laws of motion and the existence of gravity, and developed the worldview that the universe runs like a giant and mechanistic machine. Based on these achievements, it would be easy to assume him a solely rational man, yet of the 10 million words he wrote (almost all of his notes have been found and edited), nearly half are religious. Newton believed he was among the select few chosen by God to relay information about the Bible, and he was obsessed with the divinity of life, as he thought it marked the only way to find out how the universe works. A further 1 million words contain metaphysical writings about the search for immortality and enlightenment through the Philosopher’s Stone. (1)
“Atheism is so senseless & odious to mankind that it never had many professors. Can it be by accident that all birds beasts & men have their right side & left side alike shaped (except in their bowels) & just two eyes & no more on either side the face & just two ears on either side the head & a nose with two holes & no more between the eyes & one mouth under the nose & either two fore leggs or two wings or two arms on the sholders & two leggs on the hipps one on either side & no more? Whence arises this uniformity in all their outward shapes but from the counsel & contrivance of an Author? Whence is it that the eyes of all sorts of living creatures are transparent to the very bottom & the only transparent members in the body, having on the outside an hard transparent skin, & within transparent juyces with a crystalline Lens in the middle & a pupil before the Lens all of them so truly shaped & fitted for vision, that no Artist can mend them? Did blind chance know that there was light & what was its refraction & fit the eys of all creatures after the most curious manner to make use of it? These & such like considerations always have & ever will prevail with man kind to believe that there is a being who made all things & has all things in his power & who is therfore to be feared.” (2)
– Sir Issac Newton, A short Schem of the true Religion
3. Nikola Tesla
Thanks to the genius of Tesla we have electricity at our fingertips, and many of the new free energy technologies are derived from Tesla’s ideas as well. He is regarded as one of the greatest minds that ever lived, much ahead of his time, but he also explored mysticism extensively, particularly the Eastern Vedic traditions. In fact, he attributed much of his knowledge of the science of nature and energy to the concepts he learned through this research.
“When we speak of man, we have a conception of humanity as a whole, and before applying scientific methods to, the investigation of his movement we must accept this as a physical fact. These ties cannot be seen, but we can feel them. I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one. And now I see stricken down an enemy, I care least for, and it still grieves me. Does this not prove that each of us is only part of a whole? The Buddhist expresses it in one way, the Christian in another, but both say the same: We are all one.”

4. David Bohm
David Bohm is considered to be one of the most accomplished physicists of the 20th century, noted primarily for his advancements in quantum mechanics. Yet few people knew that he eventually became fed up with orthodox theories of physics, turning instead to Eastern philosophies and spending time with wisdom sages like Jiddu Krishnamurti to look for better answers.
“I would say that in my scientific and philosophical work, my main concern has been with understanding the nature of reality in general and of consciousness in particular as a coherent whole, which is never static or complete, but which is in an unending process of movement and unfoldment.”
– David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order
5. René Descartes
Considered to be the father of modern science and Western philosophy, Descartes’ fascination with the spiritual and the mental (mind-body duality) world led him to create the groundbreaking theories which have since laid the foundation for modern thinking. But what really started it all for Descartes was the series of dreams he had, in which he claimed angels told him that the universe can be understood through numbers.
“That is why, as soon as I was old enough to emerge from the control of my teachers, I entirely abandoned scholarship. Resolving to seek no knowledge except what I could find in myself or read in the great book of the world, I spent the rest of my youth travelling, visiting courts and armies, mixing with people of different temperaments and ranks, gathering various experiences, testing myself in the situations that luck put me into, and always reflecting on whatever came my way so as to profit from it.”
What We Can Learn From This
Is it just a coincidence that so many great minds were both scientific and spiritual, or do these connections speak to a deeper truth about humanity? Our educational system is fragmented and compartmentalized. Everything is studied in isolation, despite nothing in life functioning in this way. Ironically, the greatest minds by Western standards were actually the greatest minds by ancient Eastern standards, which treat the whole rather than each part separately.
In our education system and in society as a whole, our culture desperately needs a shift in thinking, to encourage a more interconnected system of ideas, values, and lifestyles, and to foster a growth in creativity and intellectual wholeness.
