We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.&quot; &quot;The subtle energies and information that underlie this universe were there before its particles of matter appeared and will be there after these particles disappear.&quot; &quot;In some sense man is a microcosm of the universe; therefore what man is, is a clue to the universe. We are enfolded in the universe.&quot; (Barrow and Tipler 1986. Goswami 1995, Bohm 1980, Pribram 1971, Sheldrake 1981, Laszlo 1993, 2003, 2004, Grof 2000, 2006, Talbot 1991, Bache 1988)

Scientific studies that changed our view of reality <ul><li>Instant communication between atoms ( Browne 1997 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Teleportation of quantum information ( Zhao et al. 2004 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Emotions affect DNA over distance instantaneously ( Motz 1993, Rein 1996 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Sending and receiving of emotions happens instantaneously ( Korotkov ) </li></ul><ul><li>Emotions and music define water crystals structure ( Emoto ) </li></ul><ul><li>Mind caused a change of water pH ( Tiller 2001 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Mind influenced the results of a random number generator based on a quantum circuit ( PEARlab Princeton ) </li></ul><ul><li>Mind affected a healing process of a damaged leaf at a distance of several thousands miles ( Schwartz Univer s ity of Arizona ) </li></ul><ul><li>Groups of positively thinking people were able to statistically decrease criminal activity, car accidents, injuries, etc. ( Orme - Johnson 1988 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Heart has got its own bio-energetic field that responds to future events cca. 6 seconds prior to they actually happen ( HeartMath institute ) </li></ul><ul><li>DNA changes formation of photons ( Gariaev et al. 1992 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Thoughts and emotions can change DNA structure; our genes do not control our lives ( Lipton 1991, 2004 ) </li></ul>
  13. 16. Non-local connection of elementary particles
  14. 17. Experiment I. <ul><li>Photon was divided into two parts </li></ul><ul><li>They were fired opposite directions through a 14 mile long optical chamber </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of the chamber they had to “choose” between two paths </li></ul><ul><li>Regardless of the number of experimental tests, the photons always make the same decisions </li></ul><ul><li>Atoms are non-locally connected and although separated geographically they still undergo same changes </li></ul>(Browne 1997)
  15. 18. The effect of emotions and intentions on matter
  16. 19. Experiment II. <ul><li>U.S army studied the effect of emotions on human DNA </li></ul><ul><li>A DNA sample was collected from a volunteer and moved into another room in the same building </li></ul><ul><li>The volunteer was shown specifically designed pictures to change his emotions </li></ul><ul><li>During this process the DNA sample was being monitored </li></ul><ul><li>A strong electrical discharge was monitored in both the volunteer’s cells as well as his DNA sample in another room </li></ul><ul><li>The reaction was instantaneous and no time delay was monitored </li></ul><ul><li>The experiment was repeated at a 350 mile distance with the same results </li></ul>( Motz 1993 )
  17. 20. Experiment III. <ul><li>HeartMath discovered a doughnut shape energetic field around hearth that reaches a distance of several feet </li></ul>( Rein 1996 )
  18. 21. Experiment III. <ul><li>Human DNA was isolated in a glass chamber </li></ul><ul><li>5 volunteers were trained in creating a strong emotional feeling known as a coherent emotion </li></ul><ul><li>DNA was analysed both chemically and visually </li></ul><ul><li>The study showed that different emotions had different effects on the DNA’s shape </li></ul>( Rein 1996 )
  19. 22. Experiment IV. <ul><li>The long-term experiments of Dr. Konstantin Korotkov demonstrated that the sending and receiving of emotions is possible over any distance </li></ul><ul><li>No time delay was monitored </li></ul>
  20. 23. Experiment V. <ul><li>Dr. Masaru Emoto exposed water to different types of music and emotions </li></ul><ul><li>After the exposure, the water sample was frozen so that it forms crystals </li></ul><ul><li>The experiment clearly showed that human vibrational energy, thoughts, words, ideas and music, affect the molecular structure of water, the very same water that comprises over seventy percent of a mature human body </li></ul>( Emoto )
  21. 24. Experiment VI. <ul><li>Dr. William Tiller proved through his experimental studies that human intention was able to change water pH by one unit </li></ul>( Tiller 2001 )
  22. 25. Experiment VII. <ul><li>PEARlab experiments at The University of Princeton showed that our intention can influence the results of a random number generator based on a quantum circuit </li></ul><ul><li>A randomly created string of binary numbers (ones and zeros) showed statistically significant differences when volunteers intentions were to cause these changes </li></ul>( PEARlab University of Princeton )
  23. 26. Experiment VIII. <ul><li>Dr. Gary Schwartz showed that a group of people can affect the healing process of deliberately damaged leaves at the distance of several thousands miles </li></ul><ul><li>A specially modified astronomical camera detected a glowing of a leaf that was being sent healing intentions </li></ul>( Schwartz University of Arizona )
  24. 27. Summary of the experimental findings of the first part <ul><li>Emotions and human intentions clearly have the influence on matter, whether it is a DNA, water molecular structure, water pH, healing or generation of random numbers </li></ul><ul><li>These effects are usually instantaneous and hence not limited by the speed of light </li></ul>
  25. 28. Intuition
  26. 29. Experiment IX. <ul><li>HeartMath institute confirmed that the heart responds to future events of a strong emotional nature </li></ul><ul><li>The heart responds to these events before the brain does </li></ul>( HeartMath Institue )
  27. 30. Mind, human body and DNA
  28. 31. Experiment X. <ul><li>Bruce H. Lipton demonstrated that genes do not control our health and lives as many often think </li></ul><ul><li>After denucleation, cells are equally intelligent and their later death is caused only by their inability to respond to new, previously unknown situations </li></ul><ul><li>A membrane is the “brain” of a cell and not its genes containing nucleus </li></ul><ul><li>The membrane contains receptors and effectors that communicate with a surrounding environment, which gives a cell intelligence </li></ul><ul><li>Cells have self receptors, which tune to external environmental signals carrying the identity information </li></ul>(Lipton 1977a, 1977b, 1991, 1992, 2004)
  29. 32. Fractal Evolution <ul><li>The first 3 billion years the evolution were all about the single-celled organisms </li></ul><ul><li>Term fractal comes from a Latin word fractus , which means broken </li></ul><ul><li>A geometric pattern that is repeated at every scale and so cannot be represented by classical geometry </li></ul><ul><li>A complex geometric pattern exhibiting self-similarity in that small details of its structure viewed at any scale repeat elements of the overall pattern </li></ul><ul><li>Emeritus Benoit Mandelbrot </li></ul>
  30. 33. Summary of the experimental part <ul><li>All atoms are somehow connected </li></ul><ul><li>Instant communication </li></ul><ul><li>Matter is influenced by emotions, intentions and by DNA itself </li></ul><ul><li>A certain biological system exists within our body or in its field that can detect future events </li></ul><ul><li>Fractal and not Euclidean geometry is best suited for describing the human body, nature and the universe </li></ul>
  31. 34. “ It isn't that the world of appearances is wrong; it isn't that there aren't objects out there, at one level of reality. It's that if you penetrate through and look at the universe with a holographic system, you arrive at a different view, a different reality. And that other reality can explain things that have hitherto remained inexplicable scientifically: paranormal phenomena, synchronicities, the apparently meaningful coincidence of events. ” Karl Pribram
  32. 35. The Brain as a Hologram <ul><li>Karl Lashley found that memories are not located in particular places in the brain – experiments with rats in a maze </li></ul><ul><li>This claim was repeatedly confirmed – patients do not lose their memories after losing parts of their brains as a consequence of brain surgery, their memories become fuzzy in the worst cases but will not disappear </li></ul><ul><li>Vision is very likely processing information holographically – 98% of the optic nerves were removed from a cat, which did not affect the function of the vision to carry out complex visual tasks </li></ul><ul><li>John von Neumann calculated that during the average lifetime a single human can store more than 280,000,000,000,000,000,000 bits of information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cm 3 of hologra phic film can store amount of information contained in 50 bibles (Collier 1971) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Experimental evidence for the holographic brain came directly from sceptics of this idea (Pietsch 1972) </li></ul>(Talbot 1996)
  33. 36. The Universe as a H ologram <ul><li>Atoms also behave like waves hence all objects contain interference waves, which are typical of holograms </li></ul><ul><li>Non-local connection of all atoms is another supportive factor that the universe is holographic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ the nonlocal aspects of quantum systems is therefore a general property of nature ” ( DeValois 1979 ) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>600 metre tall GEO600 detector found an unexplainable noise (Chown 2009) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The research leader of the Fermilab centre for particle astrophysics said after this finding : </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ If the GEO600 result is what I suspect it is, then we are all living in a giant cosmic hologram.” </li></ul></ul>(Chawn 2009, Talbot 1996, Jadczik 2006, Palmer 2009)
  34. 37. Conclusions <ul><li>Scientific experiments clearly show that we have to reconsider our view on: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Real i ty </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The power of the mind and emotions influencing this reality </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Our role in creating this reality </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The practical conclusions of this presentation are at least to realise that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We are not powerless beings having no control over our lives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The way we perceive reality depends on us and we can change this with a little bit of time and effort </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We are not controlled by our genes and most diseases are the result of not knowing the simple law of love and fear polarities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Just from a biological point of view, cells can be in two states, which is the state of protection or growth. A cell cannot be in both states simultaneously! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Often through constant fear our body is forced into high adrenaline, which temporarily weakens the immune system and decreases logical thinking ability. This function is vital but... </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>when we live in a constant state of fear and worry - in some kind of disempowered state where we do not believe that we have the power to be fully healthy and happy then this becomes our reality and we are not </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Such a state of constant protection leads to an impaired immune system and therefore to many diseases </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We are all wonderful beings with the birth right to know these laws and apply them </li></ul></ul></ul>
