Is Consciousness the Unified Field? A Field Theorist’s Perspective – John Hagelin, SAND11

John Hagelin, Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy Director of the Board of Advisors for the David Lynch Foundation

Progress in theoretical physics during the past decade has led to a progressively more unified understanding of the laws of nature, culminating in the recent discovery of completely unified field theories based on the superstring. These theories identify a single universal, unified field at the basis of all forms and phenomena in the universe. At the same time, cutting-edge research in the field of neuroscience has revealed the existence of a unified field of consciousness‚ a fourth major state of human consciousness, which is physiologically and subjectively distinct from waking, dreaming and deep sleep. In this meditative state, the threefold structure of waking experience‚ the observer, the observed and the process of observation‚ are united in one indivisible wholeness of pure consciousness.

These parallel discoveries of a unified field of physics and a unified field of consciousness raise fundamental questions concerning the relationship between the two. We present compelling theoretical and experimental evidence that the unified field of physics and the unified field of consciousness are identical‚ i.e. that during the meditative state, human awareness directly experiences the unified field at the foundation of the universe.

We show that the proposed identity between consciousness and the unified field may indeed be required to account for experimentally observed field effects of consciousness. We present the findings of a National Demonstration Project‚ the largest controlled sociological experiment in history‚ in which 4,000 advanced meditators markedly reduced violent crime in Washington, DC. We briefly explore the practical applications of proven meditative procedures for developing total brain functioning, higher states of consciousness‚ preventing social conflict and promoting peace on a national and global scale.

  1. Funny how the quantum 'woo' of physics has switched from Kabbalah to Hindu cosmology, or so it seems. Hinduism has always just 'rang true' to me, like it's genuine and authentic.. other faiths are more manufactured, dogmatic, etc.. but I still don't know how Hindu texts and philosophies necessarily fit in with physics

  2. Brothers and sisters: the kingdom of God is at hand, meaning a return to the high spiritual concept of Jesus, who proclaimed that the kingdom is the will of his heavenly Father, dominant and transcendent in the heart of the believer! That which the world needs most to know is: Men are the sons of God, and through faith they can actually realize, and daily experience, this ennobling truth! To be great is to be Godlike, so when it comes to making America great again, we must remember: Greatness is synonymous with divinity. God is supremely great and good. "Greatness and goodness simply cannot be divorced." They are forever made one in God. The estimate of greatness varies from sphere to sphere. To be great is to be Godlike, so I pray for the spiritual transformation of present-day humanity! The Unified Field Equation— 1 = ∞ — symbolizes the will of God within ones mind and soul. It is actually the Father of your soul. So if you want to survive this mortal experience and live forever, let it be made perfectly clear: "All souls of every possible phase of mortal existence will survive provided they manifest willingness to co-operate with the indwelling will of God and exhibit a desire to find God and to attain divine perfection, even though these desires be but the first faint flickers of the primitive comprehension of that "true light which lights every man who comes into the world.”
    The Unified Field Equation— 1 = ∞ —symbolizes one quantum unit of the prepersonal will of the Infinite and Eternal Deity. DEITY is personalizable as GOD, a word symbol designating all personalizations of Deity! The will of God within our mind makes it possible for us to know what it was like for God to be the theoretical but eternal and Infinite I AM! "The I AM is the Infinite; the I AM is also infinity. The I AM is the First Person of Deity, the Universal Father of all personalities!, and all of your verbosity indicates to me that you really need to discover THE URANTIA BOOK, a Cosmology of the Unified Field Equation that integrates God and man magnificently, where man and God become co-creative partners. I was a stone cold atheist until my spirit of truth I didn't know was leading me down a Pathway of Infinite Perfection to make the personal discovery of God, as a scientist, and it was absolute proof of the existence of God to me and instantly changed my mind in which I had decided to become an atheist when I was 11 years old in 1936. The end of February, 1969, was the date of my personal spiritual transformation about 48 years ago.

  3. The cemi field can be endogenous waves superimposed and then deconstructed into its seperate parts; which i think means speed of light interaction with and over a range of data, a range of mental activity surround thought, and which ends as fast as it begins…Which means consciousness is a mechanical process causing a range of data to be accessed at one time and could a be a fourier transformation… Which illustrated the failure of current ideas of quantum computing based on atom positions, when wave forms could be used.Also the CEMI field, may have the capacity to interact with the saturated space we call the biosphere and stratified EM field that surrounds the planet…which could have the consequence that we are all mentally connected wirelessly via EM waves and to the waveforms being produced at the planets core…imagine if that was the case…Even if the frequency of wave forms is low Fourier transformations Show they can superimpose.So space time could be used to stimulate machine like intelligence…

  4. The universe is a simple place which can be explained in a very simple manner using spin as the basic unit of activity which the universe is based. I came to this conclusion by observing that galaxies spin, planets spin, suns spin and that atoms must spin also. The universe is divided into fractal dimensions, like a series of Russian dolls. These dimensions extend to infinity both outwards and inwards directions forever.

    The universe is made of only one basic sub-atomic particle. This particle has 3 states – left spin (clockwise), right spin (anti-clockwise) and no spin (black-hole). The left and right spin could be interpreted as positive and negative, while the no spin particle could be interpreted as a black "hole or neutron.

    These 3 forms make up space and matter. Space is made of alternate left and right spin aether particles which I would call "ethons". The no spin ethon forms the centre of all matter and atoms (neutrons). Neutrons could be regarded as black holes which attract aether particles into rotation similar to how planets rotate around a sun. Aether particles spin at the speed of light.

    The speed of light is a dimensional signature of the sub-atomic world. In the sub-atomic world, things happen very fast and don"t obey our laws of time and space. Light is a product of the sub-atomic world and travels at light speed because the ethons are naturally rotating at this speed and are thus conveyed like a conveyor belt. The ethons in space are not attached. They only engage one-another when light passes or they are united by a no spin ethon or neutron. When light passes through aether the ethons engage, as do the cogs in a clock or watch and cause the wave to move at the speed of light. Thus, light is two dimensional. It has both spin and wave energy.

    The universe is energy rich. Aether particles spin at the speed of light. When 2 aether particles approach a large body like a sun, they are pushed together and stop spinning. This releases their energy. Thus " E=MC squared.
    Using this concept the forces of the universe can be unified. Thus, spin becomes the common denominator which unites matter, light, electricity, gravity, weak and strong nuclear forces.

  5. I am at a calm respect state of mind among those whom shared comments here.
    And this man promotes great comfort when lesser intelligent persons (me), seek to gain harmony with and in self and the greater – the universe.

  6. Our spirit is also like nothing. It is the so-called empty space between everything. The majority of everything is nothing, and it connects everything, everywhere.Our essential, immortal self or soul is like the blank sheet that physical life is written on, the darkness that gives light a place to shine, an infinite stadium that the game of life is played in. (book the Present, Chapter The Nature of Nothing) I recommend this chapter to read, it explains the Unified Field Equation in the most accurate way. Check TruthContest and read the Present

  7. Unified field equation : The holy grail of physics, the science that is trying to explain everything mathematically is something called a unified field equation. It would explain in a mathematical way why everything does what it does. They have not been able to do it, but they have not been considering the field or tried to add it to the equation. The field is what we call nothing (consciousness). page 71 of the Present.

    Doesn't it make sense ? Google Truth Contest and read THE PRESENT.

  8. There are things we(humans) cannot really figure out whats truly happening because its impossible to measure, calculate, analyze etc. without an observer being involved.

  9. Consciousness is (awareness of a) perception.  Leibniz called this apperception. The conversion by Plato's Mind of physical sensory never signals into mental experience.

    This is only possible in platonic or idealistic philosophies, such as that of Leibniz.

    You might want to know that Leibniz proposed the most complete theory of consciousness, which has been ignored by science.  For example,

    On the inevitable Leibniz revolution in physics and the theory of mind

    The current theory of mind is equivalent to saying that the violin plays the violinist,
    or that the brain plays the mind. Bottom-up control.

    But common sense tells us that the the violinist plays the violin,
    just as mind  plays the brain, as shown by everyday experience.
    Just as corporations can only operate by top-down control.

    The same is true of the universe at large, according to Plato and Leibniz,
    as well as from common sense.  Else with bottom-yup cobntrol, wqe could not have a
    cybernetic universe, as Weiner sensibly proposed. Leibniz suggested that
    that which Plato calls Mind, the One which controls the many.

    That the violin plays the violinist is equivalent to bottom-up control,
    whereas the condition that the violinist plays the violin just as
    mind plays the brain or that the the One controls the many
    is the only sensible view of existence, and of cybernetic control theory.

    Thus there will eventually be a Leibniz revolution in physics and the theory of mind.

    Beware of the Stanford Leibniz suite, their Leibniz is not platonistic, but
    seems to have been written by a group of materialists.

  10. ultimately, the answers to what is consciousness are found when a person investigates their own awareness by going within.  to see without eyes, hear without ears, feel within and at a distance.  this is called in the Eastern tradition, Knowledge,   direct experience  as the saying goes from the Upanishads….." upon experiencing the infinite reality, the foolish become wise and the wise become silent"   similar to perceiving sublime beauty, when the mind becomes completely still, in awe.    and then begins expansion.. just as a colored drop slowly dissolves into the ocean of clear water, it loses it's color until it is just a tincture.   every being that dissolves back into that sublime reality brings a little color, a little 'personality', to the infinite field.

  11. What is consciousness? It seems like he says its just the unified field without explaining consciousness or giving evidence. How can I tell that what he says isn't just speculation but based off of hard science.

    Even though it's not a physical equation, the closest someone may get this side of the grave might just be:
    "Survival of the Fittest".
    A one inch long equation that everything exhibits somehow or another, across systems from biology to art marketing.

    You can point at "it" and conclude that.
    Assuming that's the definition of unified field, which I used to consider some type of seperate, individual "force", but have since unified many fields.

  13. Its like the audience are just siezing upon every opportunity to laugh and chuckle at something "funny" he says. If they listened to what I was hearing him say, then i suspect you could hear a pin drop.

  14. God Bless Pope Francis!  Capitalist extraordinaire!  He will bring millions of bucks into the Church by bi-passing endless sainthood protocols and going directly to sainthood.

    Now people can pray to these two most recent saints and PAY MONEY to do so.
    The cash flow will off-set the pedophile law suits so the church can get back to illicit drug sales!

    What am I saying here… THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS TOTALLY CORRUPT… It does not respond to reform.

  15. Are we finally seing the beginning of a new paradigm where science can combine the illusory material world with the realm of pure consciousness here? Bravo!!!

  16. State of pure consciousness called Samati = สมาธิ (Thai)
    wowwwwwwww what a great discovery for myself!!! I've been knowing it for all of my life but never thought of how powerful it is until now!!

  17. A short list of problems with this talk:
    The unified field does not emerge out of physics, physics emerges out of the unified field.
    The unified field ie the net of Indra, the amplituhedron field, the flower of life… Has a structure that is not "like a rubber band".
    Pictures of bubbles may look pretty but they're not a good tool for understanding higher dimensions.
    Why is he even mentioning ginger ale?

  18. imagine that truth is faster than the speed of light. imagine that in your mind existed nothing but truth. then you become Christ like which could allow you to escape from the matrix. be the water my friend <– Bruce Lee

  19. Fascinating stuff  ..but to believe "findings of a National Demonstration Project‚ the largest controlled sociological experiment in history‚ in which 4,000 advanced meditators markedly reduced violent crime in Washington, DC."  is retarded.

  20. Dr Hagelin is a great genius, and thrilled to find that the most advanced level of physics was an exact reflection of the most advanced level of subjective knowledge found through meditation. When you get to Unity, that is the most simple level and the end of the search. So when physics finds that All things are One thing, the Unified Field, it is no surprise that consciousness is that also. This is THE most advanced level of knowledge.
