* For decades scientists have theorised the existence of a particle, called the Higgs boson, that explains how other particles acquire mass. The Higgs boson is believed to produce a field that interacts with particles and gives them a property we interpret as mass, explains Dr Kevin Varvell, of the University of Sydney in Australia. Dr Aldo Saavedra, a particle physicist also at the University of Sydney, made this comment as colleagues at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), near Geneva, switched on the Large Hadron Collider - "It would be really nice if nature actually provided some very puzzling thing that theories haven't actually thought of." In September 2008, renowned British astrophysicist Professor Stephen Hawking bet US$100 that the LHC experiment would not find the Higgs boson. "I think it will be much more exciting if we don't find the Higgs. That will show something is wrong, and we need to think again," says Hawking. Another aspect relating to matter’s appearance of possessing solidity and mass is - Morpho butterflies create colour by selectively adding and deleting certain wavelengths of light. Physicists have only recently devised comparable materials, called photonic band-gap crystals; and are now exploring their use in phone switches, solar cells and antennas. No surprise, then, that some engineers are looking to the living world for the next generation of optic inspirations. I believe advances in engineering and biology will enable humans, like the morpho butterfly, to selectively add and delete certain wavelengths of light. But the previous paragraph showed how anything and everything can be regarded as light (by e.g. superimposing electromagnetic and gravitational waves). So the day will come when we can add or delete wavelengths anywhere we choose, and there will be absolutely no limits to what a human can do! However, it is good to remember that we will never be gods or goddesses because the rest of the universe is also included in this unification. I anticipate people will oneday have band-gap structures in their brains that are no bigger than a computer chip (see “Gates>STARGATE” where it’s proposed that these won’t require surgical implantation because of the pre-existing digital nature of all parts of the universe). Photonic band-gap crystals would, of course, only deal with light in its photonic forms (energy forms such as visible light or radio waves). The band-gap structures I have in mind would need to deal with forms like matter, so they could add or delete anything and everything we choose. They might accomplish this by acting similarly to a modem that acts on a scale trillions of times smaller than a modem manufactured by nanotechnology, and would be capable of manipulating digitised matter. Then they could emulate computers´ copy/paste function to add things; as well as their delete function, to remove things. This ability must only come to fruition in a future, ideal society: it would only be wasted and abused in the present warring and selfish world!
The universe (megauniverse) would thus be co-created from 1) computer code written in a 5th dimension and written from what we know of nature and science as well as history, plus 2) lasers and holographic projection into the 3+1 dimensions we call space-time. We will thus create a home – the universe – for ourselves and it will, of course, be perfectly tuned to our needs. This entire universe will, being a computer simulation, be filled with advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and consciousness – and since there is no separation or distance of any kind in its unification, also be filled with human/humanoid intelligence, personality and consciousness. Our consciousness and the advanced artificial intelligence will thus be merged and identical. Erwin Schrodinger (1887-1961), the Austrian theoretical physicist who achieved fame for his contributions to quantum mechanics and received the Nobel prize in 1933, had a lifelong interest in the Vedanta philosophy of Hinduism (as does U.S. astronomer John Dobson) and this influenced Schrodinger’s speculations at the close of his 1944 book “What is Life?” about the possibility of individual consciousness being only a manifestation of a unitary consciousness pervading the universe.
Though humans have a very special potential which will, I believe, see us use our inbuilt creativity to oneday produce universes and ourselves and perform other so-called miracles; this is, in the end, just another book proclaiming that God created us and the universe. This apparent contradictory statement is resolved easily by noting that this book makes 4 points - a) it attempts to use science to demonstrate how people could create the universe and ourselves, b) it tries to show scientifically that there truly is a God – who is the total of everything in the universe, from consciousness and personality to a cluster of galaxies to a person … to a grain of sand … to an atom …to a ray of light or a magnetic or gravitational field (with the One’s consciousness capable of “downloading” into any component physical form, type of energy or force), c) finite humans are united with God via the universe’s Unified Field (which embraces zero-separation), and d) therefore, saying “we created the universe and ourselves” is another way of saying “God created the universe and us” – the religious writer and broadcaster Herbert W. Armstrong (1892-1986) would have phrased this apparent contradiction as “God is reproducing himself through mankind” since he taught that the true message Jesus brought to the world was that mankind’s destiny is to become God.
The above 4-fold resolution is by no means easy to accept since it relies on us coming to terms with the time we live in announcing that separateness in any form is an illusion; and with the great English writer William Shakespeare (1564-1616) not merely being poetic or entertaining when he said in his play “Hamlet”, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” Being human and being God are thought provoking conditions – just like my writing of this book. On one hand, I of course know beyond any doubt that I’m the author. On the other hand – the more I write, the more I wonder how the ideas it contains could ever have entered my head. But there mightn’t be any mystery here - there might be a simple answer.
The ideas are overwhelming and very puzzling to me if I regard the world as 4- dimensional and limited to the way things appear to my bodily senses and personal experiences. But I’ve been adapting for decades to the idea that a 5th dimension truly exists in the world and universe; and that it is responsible for universal unification and the zero separation of all things (as well as the parts of each thing) on Earth, in space and in time. I now accept the concept totally, and belief in it is fundamental to who I am. It’s part of my everyday thinking and it’s now impossible for me to believe, as I once did, that things actually are restricted to the way they appear (every object and event now has an underlying existence in my mind). I believe every idea in this book flows perfectly naturally from my conviction, and the accumulation of facts and theories to support my conclusions has merely been an attempt to further convince myself that my ideas are, in fact, realistic. I’ve satisfied myself … when you’ve absorbed this whole book, only you can know if I have satisfied you, my reader.
In any event, I’m becoming more and more convinced that the book truly exists already and was just waiting for somebody – anybody - to come along and press all the right keys on a computer keyboard. I guess this conflict between knowing I’m the author and thinking the book already exists can be resolved by time’s loops and curves and warps. I read somewhere that the famous Austrian composer of classical music Wolfgang Mozart (1756-1791) also experienced the feeling of his compositions being already written – and I’ve heard that Paul McCartney had the same feeling when he wrote the Beatles’ song “Yesterday” back in the 1960s. As the 1968 song “Master Jack” (by the South African band 4 Jacks and a Jill) said, “It’s a strange, strange world we live in”.
All this - from ancient Greece (and long before) to the books of century 21 – quite amazes me. And no doubt there are many more amazing ideas out there … ones I’m not familiar with in the least. Combine all this with the previous century’s development of Einstein’s Relativity, quantum mechanics, electronic computers, space travel, holography and the Internet. It makes me wonder if this time we live in really could be “the time of unveiling or revelation” history has supposedly been leading up to.
