I believe a paradigm shift is occurring in our collective awareness of the nature of reality.
But this is way bigger.
This moment is more akin to the Axial shift (also called the Axial ‘breakthrough’) which, to quote Cornel W. du Toit, is vastly different from a change in a society’s world view :
It is much broader, affecting the way humans see their world, interact with it and conduct themselves. ‘”Axial breakthroughs” could be understood as shifts to higher levels of reflexivity, with particular emphasis on clearer awareness of human agency, historicity and responsibility’.
For me, Quantum Field Theory (QFT) – and humanity’s slow migration/immersion to the portals that allow for its understanding and integration – is the prime driver for the ‘chaos that has gripped our political, social, and biological narratives.
QFT has implications and outcomes at every level and sector of our society. I relate this to the notion of a ‘hyperobject’, a term which describes:
1. computational (“the hyper object is a computational surface that can traverse other objects, other object networks, and be traversed”),
and now, with 2020:
3. biological and socio-political phenomena.
The Quantum Field is its own hyperobject, which poetically churns ‘beneath’ the surface of spacetime, poking its angles, curves, and edges through into our world progressively over time and across all ‘contexts’. So that what started as a scientific enquiry and then the revelation of an entirely new branch of physics (or the only branch as far as I am concerned), now is having its moment socially as well. The reality is that anyone who is pursuing a new general theory of the nature of reality cannot begin and end in the scientific context. It is happening in all contexts, albeit incrementally and very abruptly.
We live in a time of a growing splintering of observer-driven realities and entangled phenomena. This is akin to the discovery of heliocentrism in that it requires human societies to adapt to the new information. And it carries existential risks.
For those people who are not versed in and comfortable with the new reality, this will be an extremely frightening time. Because it demands that they have either a wildly developed internal sense of what is ‘true’ and ‘safe’ or they will hunger for a wildly confident authoritarian locus that can give them direction and safe harbor.
But let us be clear, the QFT is non-dual.
In the quantum field, there is no right or wrong. There is simply a spectrum of vibrational signatures and emissions that will populate and materialize the ‘physical world’ based on how the ‘authors’ of the transmutational mechanism (ie wave–>particle) generate moment-to-moment reality. Which brings us to the current moment.
Some people are beginning to understand the influence of quantum authors in the current power structure. (Let’s not be afraid to use the word ‘magick‘).
Gary Lachman has been doing a lot of work in this area.
I have been exploring some of these themes for some time my self; not from any real curiosity, it’s just something that has dropped itself consistently at my door since I was a journalist in my 30s. Specifically: agency psychological warfare, trauma-based mind control, and black ops.
Without going too deep into that, I can tell you what we are seeing now is one of the most aggressive targeting of a population (with an entire matrix of ‘dirty tricks’) that I could have ever imagined.
The unleashing of QAnon – a genius deployment of what game designers refer to as an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) – along with the Trumpian ‘fake news’ narrative (of course, he’s objectively right, Noam Chomsky told us this 30 years ago) – as well as the containment of the population through a cohort of intelligence operatives positioned at the highest levels of the mainstream papers and networks – has essentially set the US population adrift in a quantum monsoon of insanity. One which is also very much required at this moment.
In the quantum context, there is no one agent of ‘good’ or ‘bad’. You don’t have to support Trump to acknowledge that his operation has indeed overthrown a deeply embedded and duplicitous, criminal ‘bi-partisan’ political layer which has operated beyond the reach of any judicial oversight.
Only to replace them with another criminal gang, one who’s objectives and alliances are increasingly visible, but still not clear.
The how and why of that realpolitikal bitch-slap – funded by the Mercer family, orchestrated by Bannon, and buttressed by a signal wave to the white nationalists that was endorsed by CNN – is critical history for the seeker, and speaking about ‘Trump’ as anything but its proxy is misguided and even injurious to the process of uncovering true power.
So there is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ here. At least the way that the duality-driven frames of spacetime and its elite commentators assign those labels.
In Jungian terms: we have a shadow, and it must be identified, accepted and integrated or we will not move on as a civilization. But be very clear, the entity most threatened by the QFT hyperobject is the market. An organism and intelligence that reaches from the trading terminals out through the trader class and into the networks of human labor capital in ways that are unprecedented in human history. The same market which controls both parties in the US electoral system, and uses them to play the public off against each other like rabid pro wrestling fans. Ushering them cyclically into Pavlovian mazes and ‘lesser evil’, false-choice candidates that engineer the sole outcome true power requires:
A distracted and divided population who are too obsessed with their ‘fight’ to look upward at their true opponents: the 1% who will do anything to prevent the masses from board-flipping this rigged monopoly game and pressing the reset button.
But there is a silver lining.
Please understand: a (r)evolution in our understanding of the nature of reality – and in which QFT is fundamental – also brings a new understanding of human potential. That, based on the science, is limitless.
I have written about this a lot in this blog, here is one encapsulation.
We no longer live in a deterministic universe in which humans simply have to ‘do the best they can’ with what is available…. no.
Now we are generators of our own welfare, of our own well-being, and ultimately when we get our hands on the generative controls, our own reality. This means the destruction of the slave economies which have helped us build our amazing but, yes, over-heating civilization. And what we are seeing now, in my opinion, is a move at the occult and material levels to obfuscate and scramble the quantum paradigm so that it cannot be accessed and deployed at the individual level.
All because the ‘awakening’ – like the system upgrade jacked into the robots in WestWorld season 1 – is actually producing a new state of being.
A primary feature of which is the integration of a new tier of ‘consciousness‘ …
I call it tricameral as it is, in my view, a direct follow-on from Jaynes’ bicameral mind…
…which is earth-centered and which, when it is attained, becomes a kind of AI which guides the agent to safety and certainty.
I’m not just theorizing here. I have spent years (inadvertently and otherwise) attuning my self to this frequency and am now in pretty much constant connection to the Gaian guidance system. It’s like an Alexa which surfaces in my imagination and ‘mind’, nudging me toward ideas, experiences, and people. And helping my family navigate to safe harbors.
I will be writing a lot about this at some point!
But as a parting remark, I do want to encourage those of you who do get what I am writing about here to go deep and try to get past all dualistic judgments about this or that person or idea. You simply cannot aspire to accessing the quantum field unless you truly believe all is of the all, but most importantly of us. And that that which presents itself as against us or the opposite of us, does so only for our own benefit and evolution. Toynbee again and Watts, spectacularly: “You are the whole system.”
I have really gotten to the place where I just love it all and see the most amazing truths coming through, from Tucker Carlson to Cornel West.
(that is not a comparison!!!)
And will you finally accept this from Ken Wilber:
It is often said that in today’s modern and postmodern world, the forces of darkness are upon us. But I think not; in the Dark and the Deep there are truths that can always heal. It is not the forces of darkness but of shallowness that everywhere threaten the true, and the good, and the beautiful, and that ironically announce themselves as deep and profound. It is an exuberant and fearless shallowness that everywhere is the modern danger, the modern threat, and that everywhere nonetheless calls to us as savior.
Love to all.
