An interesting article and a news story which has been picked up by several outlets. Such has major implications in the debate as to if our consciousness is ‘other’ or a mere product of the brains function.
In conjunction with the ability of the brain to relocate function and memory when a part of it is damaged or removed and this man’s brain really does challenge the notion of consciousness as a by-product of life function.
The human brain is a complex organ that remains a mystery unto itself. And while a common myth that we only use 10 percent of our brain still prevails, valuable insight on the matter proclaims we actually use much more than that. “We use virtually every part of the brain, and [most of] the brain […]

An interesting question in the below linked article. The reality is — if our manifest causal universe is either a computer simulation or an aspect of an overarching consciousness, then as we may only measure and interpret data via instrumentation that itself is a part of the same manifestation, then we may only ever gather empirical data as allowed for by the simulation/consciousness. In short, unless we can measure from outside of the universe, we will never really be able to define what the universe is. It may all be but “a dream within a dream”, as Edgar Allen Poe wrote.

Discovery of quantum vibrations in ‘microtubules’ inside brain neurons supports controversial theory of consciousness — ScienceDaily.
Science finally begins to acknowledge the very things it denied in its infancy. Consciousness – check. Potential parallel universes from quantum physics – check. Surely the origin of gods/archetypes is next?
Fear not- this post is not a mammoth article. The larger article around this topic will be reserved for a future published work. I reserve these blog articles for shorter forms of exegesis only.
Whilst engaging in a shamanic journey last night, I altered my astral body for the first time. Shifting the astral form of my manifestation to altered scales of size and directly manipulating the perceived realms material through application of the will ties directly with my goals of development. I believe that with sufficient development of the will, an increased electrical boost aside, then we can transfer our thoughts to other matter. Yes, a form of telekinesis. As our brands transpose the will of our mind into electrical signals and computations directing the ultra-complex motions of our bodies, then given the absolute atomical building blocks of the manifest universe there is no reason that this transposition of will can not be affected upon atoms outside of our bodies. Only the power increase required is to be realised.
On a smaller scale, our minds directly shape our experience of the manifest. The brain is a super computer that only receives data. It is our minds that interpret this data as sustenance, danger, pleasure or pain. Through our conscious will, we have the ability to alter our perception of any experience. Thus, pain can become pleasure. Danger can become opportunity. Disasters can become opportunities.
Alter your perception and become.
We must open our eyes. Hearing is not listening. Man generally does not watch or observe what occurs around him. We see but do not observe.
In order to observe and hear our worlds- we must awaken our conscious. As we use so little of our brains- we rely purely on the functionality of the senses. Only through effort do we pay attention- often at times we now we wish to remember such as a wedding or the birth of our children. Here is where we find Ouspensky invaluable. Through the effort to remember- we actually find ourselves more awake. We observe and hear when we put effort into it.
