Most human beings seem to have an inborn sense that there is more to life than the immediate material world. For all of recorded history, and even further into the past, as we can determine from myth and folklore and archaeological artifacts, people have believed in, and practiced, methods of going beyond the confines of space and time in attempts to transcend the obvious limits of human knowledge. People know that in dreams they encounter a different landscape; they experience walking and talking with both alien beings and the dead; they experience premonitory dreams of events which occur later in reality. In delirium or initiatory ordeals, human beings have deliberately or accidentally interacted with a realm that is vastly different from the everyday world.
The idea that nothing occurs randomly or mindlessly is reinforced every time we notice patterns that we recognize. We see spirals in galaxies that are reflected in the spirals of the batter we stir for our morning pancakes. The same spirals are seen when we pull the plug to drain our bath, or in the eddies of the incoming tide around the pylons of a bridge. The same formations of a growing tree are seen in the branching formations of the human nerve system or the channels of a river delta. Clouds take shapes that are called a "mackerel sky" or a "buttermilk sky" in reflection of things on the ground. The Duke in Shakespeare's As You Like It "Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, Sermons in stones and good in everything."
All of these patterns reflect the underlying mathematics of the physical laws of the universe. If these laws were different, it seems, matter as we know it would not exist and neither would life. Apparently the ancients understood that these facts indicate that our very being is related to the laws of matter and energy, and therefore the patterns are manifestations of the underlying mathematical principles of life itself. The patterns in our world are manifestations of the driving energy of the Divine Will. And, as it happens the dynamic relationships between matter and energy take certain forms which can be expressed in mathematical formulae.
For the past hundred years or so, mathematicians have probed these mysteries. They have learned that the patterns resulting from physical effects are the same regardless of the material in which they manifest. It doesn't matter if it is a galaxy or a molecule or a micro-organism. Self-organizing systems seem to be the underlying principle of both physical and conscious evolution.
Human beings are subjected to an incredible multiplicity of forces and energies ranging from gravity and electro-magnetic fields, to far more subtle one such as belief and human behavior. There seem to be vast areas of the physical universe that we cannot experience with our physical senses such as ranges of light and sound that are unavailable to us, but which we know to exist because we have managed to construct devices that detect and measure them. It is folly to assume that there is no similarly undetected and unmeasured range of forces and energies relating to belief and behavior which are in the realms of cognition and consciousness. The fact is, there may very well be forces and energies operating in the Cosmos that simply cannot be monitored by either the mechanical, digital, step-by-step methods of science.
The most ancient of societies apparently believed that time was not linear, that history and events occurred in ever-returning cycles. According to their understanding of the cosmos, there were mathematical principles upon which all of existence was based and because the universal processes and structures were part of a Oneness, the patterns and shapes observable at any moment in time by an attuned observer, could inform that person about the present state of cosmic being as well as the nature and potential development of that state. They believed that all things, by their very existence in space and time, were linked to one another and careful observation would produce perception of the connections which could then, be interpreted based on the cyclic view of history and events.
The astute reader will note that, in a funny sort of way, such a principle is actually at the core of the uniformitarian system of science with the exception that the uniformitarian belief discards the idea of the hyperdimensional reality and proposes that all events are linear. The scientific view is materially analytical, and seeks the cause in the event before, and makes the prediction about the event to come based strictly on what can be perceived by the five senses. This view insists that the only constant factor of the physical universe is change operating in a sequential and progressive manner, manifesting out of chaos as patterns recognizable to the human consciousness.
Scrutinizing the patterns in the material world in an attempt to extract information about the hyperdimensional world is not a lot different from the scientific experimental analysis of systems. The scientist has knowledge of the system and compares the pattern under observation with his model. If the two patterns match, then the scientist has precise knowledge about the status of the examined object. If they don't match, he can compare and evaluate the differences. To a layman, the scientist's intimate knowledge of the system he is analyzing may seem to be magical.
The ancient systems of Divination seem to have proposed to do precisely that: they sought insight into the energizing influences of what can only be called the Divine Forces; "as above, so below." They conceived of the idea that all human thoughts and actions were subordinate to this hyperdimensional reality, and they understood that everything in the mundane world was bound to this other realm. Through divination, they attempted to gain the insight so as to be able to bring all their activities and ambitions into harmony with higher nature, the Divine Will.
Right here, with this point, we arrive at an extraordinarily subtle issue: seeking insight into the energies of Divine Forces and bringing ones activities and ambitions into harmony with higher nature.
It is in the distortion of this idea that the "moves" are made on the gameboard of our reality.
The owners and publishers
of these pages wish to state that the material presented here is the product
of our research and experimentation in Superluminal Communication. We invite
the reader to share in our seeking of Truth by reading with an Open, but skeptical
mind. We do not encourage "devotee-ism"
nor "True Belief." We DO encourage the seeking of Knowledge and Awareness in
all fields of endeavor as the best way to be able to discern lies from truth.
The one thing we can tell the reader is this: we work very hard, many hours
a day, and have done so for many years, to discover the "bottom line" of our
existence on Earth. It is our vocation, our quest, our job. We constantly seek
to validate and/or refine what we understand to be either possible or probable
or both. We do this in the sincere hope that all of mankind will benefit, if
not now, then at some point in one of our probable futures.
