Energy and matter we have studied from Einstein's hypotheses are analogous: matter can be austerely denoted in terms of energy. Thus, we have only discovered two mechanisms in which energy can be transferred. These are particles and waves. For example, light can be expressed as both particles and waves. This paradox is known as the Wave–particle Duality Paradox. . Through the work of Albert Einstein, Louis de Broglie, and many others, current scientific theory holds that all particles also have a wave nature. This phenomenon has been verified not only for elementary particles, but also for compound particles like atoms and even molecules.
Astral projection (or astral travel) (or AP for short...) refers to episodes of out-of-body experiences considered to involve an astral counterpart that separates from the physical body and travels to one or more astral planes or the physical world. Astral projection is experienced as being "out of the body". Unlike dreaming or near death experiences, astral projection may be practiced deliberately.
When the pineal gland is at its peak performance, it turns a golden color and emits a black juice as well as a golden oil. That black juice would be the melanin color of the organs and every other area of the body which has a pigment.
The back of the eye has a black area called the macula which is pigmented with melanin. That is the area the light hits when your eye opens. Many people have difficulty with blindness because they no longer make that beautiful colour in that spot.
Positivism is a philosophy that holds that the only authentic knowledge is
that based on actual sense experience. Metaphysical speculation is
avoided. Though the positivist approach has been a 'recurrent theme in
the history of western thought from the Ancient Greeks to the present day'
and appears in Ibn al-Haytham's 11th Century text Book of Optics, the
concept was first coined by Auguste Comte, widely considered the first
modern sociologist, in the middle of the 19th century. In the early 20th
century, logical positivism—a stricter and more formal version of Comte's
basic thesis—sprang up in Vienna and grew to become one of the
dominant movements in American and British philosophy. The positivist
view is sometimes referred to as a scientistic ideology, and is often shared
by technocrats who believe in the necessity of progress through
scientific progress, and by naturalists, who argue that any method for
gaining knowledge should be limited to natural, physical, and material
approaches. In psychology, a positivistic approach is favoured by
It was Gödel who proved, using the very heart and soul of the positivists
doctrine-- mathematics--that it is impossible to ever conceive of such a
system of logic. It is not my desire here to go into the details of Gödel's
proof because it has been amply documented elsewhere. My point here
is that Gödel's proof reflected an important turning point in the nature of
the twentieth century intellect, a turning away from broad, monolithic
approaches of understanding, toward a new type of pluralistic
I am of course referring to the famous “wave/particle”
duality presented in 1929 by Niels Bohr and his “Copenhagen”
interpretation of quantum mechanics. Again, the twentieth century
intellect was forced, by its own standards, into replacing a previously
monolithic mind-set with a more pluralistic approach
In the context of the plurality of modern approaches toward
knowledge, let us begin by considering four traditional
approaches or perspectives toward knowledge: science, philosophy,
occultism and mysticism.
First off, there is, and has always been, a constant exchange and
interplay among the four in terms of their greater social context. In
some cultures, for example ancient Greece or India, or Medieval
Europe, the studies of philosophy, science, occultism and mysticism
were so intimately intertwined that no real distinction was made
between them1. Granted, these cultures may have seen the four
branches of knowledge in a different light than we do today. Yet they
saw knowledge in a unified framework in which all four of these
approaches had equal validity. However, the way that science and
philosophy are taught today in the universities, it is all too apparent that
this is not true.
Actually, to the true mystic, nothing is separate from anything else,
and any classifications of the nature of reality are seen as that--
classifications. Reality itself, from the mystical vantage point, could
care less what you call it: “IT” is anything you wish to call “IT”--and
everything else as well. Mysticism is the true spiritual approach, it is the
true way to religion. What we call religion today in the West is but a
watered-down, overly rigid, dogmatic and institutionalized vestige of
ancient expressions of the mystical experience. The true mystical
experience defies the mind at all of its levels, whether these be words or
rituals, dogmas or beliefs, and brings into direct comprehension the
overwhelming and unquestionable, yet ever-changing and ever
dynamic, living unity of all existence.
