Avatar, The Lost Symbol and TIME Magazine … A Common Ground
Wow! As is clearly evident from today’s headlines, the “evolution” is seriously underway. Political turmoil, economic upheaval, fanatical religious fundamentalism are all signs of a crumbling foundation. The media, unfortunately, is focusing on the fear of the collapse and not really offering much encouragement for a healthier, harmonious tomorrow.
In spite of the looming darkness, messages of empowerment are still being provided to the public through the guise of edutainment, education wrapped in a layer of entertainment. Recently, my lovely partner, Margaret, and I cut the cords attaching us to our computers and ventured off to the beautiful summer in the South Island of New Zealand. During our two-week break before the new teaching semester started, I did something quite unusual for moi … I engaged in some “recreational” reading. I chose Dan Brown’s new book, The Lost Symbol, a page turning mystery fusing ancient history and modern science.
The premise of the book concerns the quest for acquiring Earth-changing empowerment through unlocking mysteries in the long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. I was particularly excited by the book’s underlying story of America’s Deistic spiritual roots. This is the same information I provided in Spontaneous Evolution, knowledge that I believe is relevant to why and how the US was created … and why we have gone so far astray from our evolutionary roots.
Brown’s story also introduces the public to the findings of a field of research known as Noetic Science. In the course of the story, Brown offers the public scientific proof that consciousness influences reality. The storyline incorporates examples of the power of consciousness using information taken from The Field and The Intention Experiment, books by my friend and colleague Lynne McTaggart. His foray into Noetic science focuses on the power of the mind in shaping our lives and the world in which we live … coincidently, the very same message emphasized in The Biology of Belief.
My excitement in reading Brown’s book, in addition to the story, is that through entertainment, he is providing the public with a new science that is vital to our survival and evolution. For the same reason, I was mesmerized by James Cameron’s Avatar. Well, the truth is the amazing 3-D wizardry and advanced animation techniques were a stunning technical tour-de-force that would have captivated me even if the movie didn’t convey such a profoundly important message.
However, in the edutainment category, Avatar’s mythic fantasy reveals deep insight into how human behavior is undermining the environment and precipitating our own extinction. It’s very “un“subtle and profoundly important message is that civilization must recognize and honor its life-sustaining relationship with the environment. Spontaneous Evolution offers the same story, without the 3-D and stunning animation (… maybe that’s where I went wrong!)
Lastly, TIME magazine’s cover story, Why Your DNA Isn’t Your Destiny (January 18),
presented the general public with a personally empowering story on epigenetics, emphasizing how an individual’s environment and lifestyle control genetic activity. Of course, this is the fundamental message introduced and expanded upon in The Biology of Belief. The public media is finally introducing the masses to the knowledge that they influence the readout of their own genes and control their own health. A message of mastery versus the conventional story that they are victims, held hostage by their own genes.
I truly want to thank all of you that have written about your concerns that my work was not cited in this groundbreaking article. Remember, I am still the heretic, wayward scientist who disavowed The Central Dogma. Regardless of the fact that my contributions were not recognized, I send kudos to TIME magazine for through their worldwide distribution, they are spreading this important evolutionary message much farther than I ever could. I do appreciate your support for the “new” science I offer through my writing and lectures. Thanks!
Lastly, Margaret and I were honored to be guests at a most uplifting and energizing concert in Auckland with Deva Primal and Miten. This was the first show kicking off their current world tour. The couple provided beautiful music and chants, but it was the deep love they shared between themselves and everyone in their audience that melded the hearts of the all to form a single loving unity, a family of life.
I’m off to the college to present my first lecture for this year’s incoming students … and so excited because I’m looking forward to blowing their minds with new science. I am fortunate to be visiting faculty at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, a school based on practicing the philosophy it teaches … a philosophy of love, community and evolution. NZCC is an academic environment that is a living example of the world perceived in The Biology of Belief and Spontaneous Evolution.
Let’s meet again next month. Till then evolutionaries, keep your hearts and minds focused on the beautiful future that lies before us!
With Love and Light,
p.s. If possible, I would appreciate you joining me for my first U.S. 2010 speaking engagement with the Hay House “I Can Do It” Conference in San Diego, May 14-16, 2010. For more information.
