MAINSTREAM science looking for the source of consciousness, insist its origin must be located in the physical brain.
They are certain that all cognition arises from the activity of neurons attached to specific structures, which have fixed locations.
Yet many credible scientific researchers today are unconvinced, and dispute these assumptions.
Such open minded investigators are willing to pursue truth wherever it leads, even to evidence that consciousness is a independent entity from the physical structures through which it manifests.
But because research findings on this question upset established assumptions, it is ignored by mainstream science.
We live in an age of prejudice, dissimulation and paradox, wherein, like dry leaves caught in a whirlpool, we are tossed helpless, hither and thither, ever struggling between our honest convictions and fear of that cruelest of tyrants—PUBLIC OPINION.
-H. P. Blavatsky, A Paradoxical World
Frontier investigators risk being minimized and shunned by their peers—and their careers stalled as funding sources dry up.
Yet, poised fearlessly at the cutting edge of psi research are scientific organizations such as the respected Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) in Petaluma, California, and the Institute of HeartMath in Boulder Creek. These researchers, and others, like NES energy medicine, are willing to take a leap in pursuit of the fast-moving “soul of things.”
Such investigations were formerly the exclusive precinct of canny ancient intuitives and seers. Today there are numerous qualified, sincere scientific investigators on the hunt for answers to the puzzling questions of consciousness that stymie mainstream science.
“The flashing gaze of those seers has penetrated into the very kernel of matter, and recorded the soul of things there.”
“The genuine texts of the Upanishads treat of and expound the secret and mystic meaning of the Vedic texts. They speak of the origin of the Universe, the nature of Deity, and of Spirit and Soul, as also of the metaphysical connection of mind and matter. In a few words: They contain the beginning and the end of all human knowledge, but they have now ceased to reveal it, since the day of Buddha. . . . One thing in them — and this in all the Upanishads — invariably and constantly points to their ancient origin.”
Materialistic science still “believes not in the ‘soul of things,'” Mme. Blavatsky declared forcefully in The Secret Doctrine 1:272.
Now all this may be changing . . .
