Particle physicists put up a brave front, but they are going through difficult times. All their current theories about the nature of reality – string theory, the multiverse, and what-else-have you – are turning out to have serious flaws. Perhaps if they will return to that old saw, Occam’s Razor, and rethink reality along simpler lines, they will save themselves some headaches. In fact, courtesy of our beloved dead, the answers to many of their questions have been under their noses for more than a century.
I am becoming ever more confident that the 27% of the universe that physicists call “dark matter” because it interacts with gravity but not with photons of light are the six or so energy-based levels where the dead reside. They exist precisely where we are, but at graduated vibratory rates between this material universe and the Source level, the highest energy level of which we are aware.
I admit to having poked good-natured fun at physicists who are earnestly studying a mere 5% of what exists as if that were the whole of reality. Five percent! But apparently physicists are at last beginning to look more closely at the dark matter that is at least six times greater in volume than all the visible matter and energy put together.
To quote a wonderful article in the August issue of Scientific American entitled “Could Dark Matter Make Invisible, Parallel Universes?”, “Scientists are increasingly considering the possibility that dark matter, in particular, is not just a contrivance to account for the motion of visible matter but a hidden side of the universe with a rich inner life. It may consist of a veritable zoo of particles interacting through novel forces of nature—an entire universe interwoven silently with our own.” “Observations suggest it outweighs ordinary matter by a factor of 6 to 1. Galaxies and galaxy clusters are embedded in giant balls, or ‘halos,’ of dark matter.” “Could there be a hidden world that is an exact copy of ours, containing hidden versions of electrons and protons, which combine to form hidden atoms and molecules, which combine to form hidden planets, hidden stars and even hidden people?”
Oh, yes indeed! That the afterlife levels outweigh this material level by a factor of 6 to 1, that they do indeed have a “rich inner life,” and that they would be concentrated on material galaxies all makes perfect sense. And yes – joyously! – to the authors’ speculation about those glorious “hidden people.” Dark matter harbors billions of people that – silly us! – we used to think were dead.
The afterlife levels are as real as this material universe. We have been receiving abundant and consistent communications from denizens of those levels for nearly two hundred years, so it feels good finally to see some physical evidence of their existence!
But the folks doing this speculating are particle physicists, so they continue to make one unfortunate error. They cannot conceive of a kind of matter that is entirely consciousness-based, and is not composed of the vortices of energy that they fondly still think of as particles. Insofar as we have been able to determine, the matter in the afterlife levels neither possesses matter-based particles, nor needs them.
The venerable Max Planck was one of the greatest physicists of the (in many ways frustrating) twentieth century. He received the 1918 Nobel Prize in physics, and he is remembered now as the father of quantum theory. He should have received a second Nobel Prize for propounding the even more important theory that what we think of as human consciousness is primary and pre-existing. In 1931 he said, ”I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.” He seems even then to have understood what modern evidence now insists is true: human minds are integral parts of the Source that brings this universe into being.
Now let’s take a closer look at the dark energy that is 68% of reality. Like dark matter, it interacts with gravity but not with matter-based photons of light, and considering that it makes up two-thirds of the universe, physicists seem remarkably incurious about it. The authors of the article quoted above dismiss it by saying,“As for dark energy, its only role appears to be to accelerate cosmic expansion, and the available evidence indicates it has remained completely unchanged over the life of the cosmos.” Unchanged it may have been, but if it is Max Planck’s pre-existing consciousness energy, then it certainly has not been inactive. It continues even now to hold every aspect of this universe in perfect suspension.
Positing that dark energy is consciousness energy helps to solve another scientific problem. As was said here in a recent blog post, 80% of the visible light in the nearby universe is not photon-based. All that light could very well be spiritual light that has its origin in the dark energy that we already know makes up most of the universe. Having seen a burst of spiritual light as a child, I can tell you it is much brighter than sunlight. I’m not quite ready just yet to state that dark energy has to be the Source Itself… but that is almost certainly what it is.
