In Flatliners, medical students experiment on “near death” experiences that involve past tragedies until the dark consequences begin to jeopardize their lives. In Flatliners, five medical students, hoping to gain insight into the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment. By stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience. As the investigation becomes more and more perilous, they are forced to confront the sins of their pasts, as well as contend with the paranormal consequences of trespassing to the other side.

Flatliners, which stars Ellen Page, is a follow-up to the 1990 cult psychological horror of the same name about a group of medical students who seek to find out the truth about the afterlife by subjecting each other to near-death experiences. The original film starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon. Sutherland will appear in the sequel.


The trailer for the new film suggests it follows a similar plot to the original, with Page and her fellow students conducting experiments on each other that prompt dangerous paranormal experiences. James Norton (Happy Valley) and Diego Luna (Rogue One) are among the other cast members, while Niels Arden Oplev, who is best known for his work on the original Swedish adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, is on directorial duties.

What does “raising consciousness” actually mean?

It is often portrayed as some sort of super-human accomplishment that will grant us spiritual super powers… but it is simply about becoming freer within ourselves. The freer we feel within, the LIGHTER we are. Becoming “enlightened” is simply about lightening up. We can now forget about becoming something more “special.” Raising our consciousness is simply the process of lightening up our load of fears and limiting beliefs so that we can travel lighter on our journey!

1. Be You in Every Moment

Yep, it’s that simple. Replace pretence with your presence. You don’t have to wait until you feel “good,” “perfect,” or “enlightened,” or wait for something to happen for you to relax into your own being. You don’t need to look at another’s journey and compare, judge, or doubt yourself, either. This type of thinking just tricks you out of the perfection of you in this moment anyways. No matter what you are feeling or what the situation is, just be you and let the rest unfold.

2. Let Go of the Fear of Feeling

Open Doors. This is a big one. Discovering who we are is no different than opening the door of a house — the house being a metaphor for our human mind. It’s a great step; we’re letting some light in! But does it mean we have visited it thoroughly? Does it necessarily mean we have experienced each room, opened every closet, and even spent some time in the “scary” basement? Perhaps we have quickly peaked in each room, but have we taken the time to explore them fully, meditate in them, open the windows to let some light in, and perhaps do a little cleanup? Are we okay with leaving the doors open for us and others to see?

The light of our awareness isn’t limited to entering what is comfortable and acceptable to the mind. It is here to illuminate all rooms — even those dusty closets with all of the old, emotionally charged baggage we have been reluctant to explore. What has laid dormant within each room is often ignored. But now, the winds of change are blowing all doors open and many of us are feeling and re-experiencing many emotions that we have once protected ourselves from feeling again. The only thing that blocks us from seeing the blessing in letting the wind blow us open is the fear of feeling. When we choose to not be controlled and defined by this fear anymore, we naturally keep all of our doors open knowing that it cannot break who we are, but only identities with old patterns that were limiting our inner freedom and peace anyways.

3. Remove Your Masks (Even Your Spiritual Mask)

Can you identify as nothing in particular? For example, look at a bunny, a bird, or a flower. Is the bunny hopping around thinking it’s a bunny, is the bird singing because it knows “that’s what birds do,” and is the beauty of a flower experienced via its name, or is it simply witnessed in silence? The same goes with us. Let’s not dismiss the BEING within the term “human being.” The less we let ourselves be defined by rigid identities, the more space we allow for our own authentic presence to shine through, and the lighter and more alive we feel. Take a moment to breathe in this very moment and identify as NO-THING. There you are…

TED decided to censor Graham and remove this video from the TEDx YouTube channel.

Graham Hancock is a British writer and journalist. Hancock specialises in unconventional theories involving ancient civilisations, stone monuments or megaliths, altered states of consciousness, ancient myths and astronomical/astrological data from the past. One of the main themes running through many of his books is a posited global connection with a “mother culture” from which he believes all ancient historical civilisations sprang.

U.S. Marshal Mike Donovan (Vincent Cassel) (referred to as Broken Nose by the native tribe; unlike the comic his nickname is not Blueberry) has dark memories of the death of his first love. He keeps peace between the Americans and the natives who had temporarily adopted and taken care of him. The evil actions of Blount, a “white sorcerer” lead him to confront the villain in the Sacred Mountains, and, through shamanic rituals involving a native entheogenic brew, conquer his fears and uncover a suppressed memory he would much rather deny.

When a French filmmaker decides to shoot a western, you can be certain that his take on the genre wont be traditional. Indeed, Blueberry has more to do with Ken Russells Altered States (1980) than with Howard Hawks Rio Bravo (1958). The film draws its inspiration from a popular graphic novel series published in France since 1965 under the supervision of legendary artist Jean Moebius Giraud.

Mike Blueberry (played by French star Vincent Cassel) is a lonesome, troubled marshal who confronts his arch-enemy (Michael Madsen) in a fight for the freedom of the Indian tribe in which he grew up. In order to find the answers hes seeking, Blueberry submits himself to a series of shamanistic rites that open him to a new level of consciousness and to painful, long forgotten memories that will ultimately decide his fate.

A Life-Changing Experience

Chabrier realized very quickly that he wouldnt be able to put Kounens visions on screen if he didnt try it himself. Thus, one day, he flew to Peru with Kounen and Cassel to meet a master shaman. The experience had a profound effect on me, although not to the extent of what it had done to Jan, admits Chabrier. However, after my first trance, I was convinced that there was no way this experience could be shown on film. To me, even if you filmed it in IMAX and projected it at Showscan speed (60 fps), it still would only represent 1/1000th of the real thing! I couldnt see how we could possibly do it.

Most people have misconceptions about what shamanism really is. They often associate it with spirituality, while a shamanistic trance is basically a deeply personal journey. Chabrier adds, Its difficult to explain shamanism in a few words, but Jan likes to say that, as NASA takes humans into space, shamans take you to your inner self, to your deepest levels of consciousness. When you live this experience, you never make the same journey twice and two people never make the same journey, which makes it very difficult to describe. Still, the incredible thing is that there are some visions that everybody experiences: spiders, snakes, fractal forms, perception of the immensely small and the immensely large These similarities allowed us to find a common language to describe and share what we had experienced.


For several nights after you retire (several weeks would be better) watch yourself during the process of going to sleep. Try to concentrate your thoughts within yourself. Think of nothing and no one but yourself. Try to keep a close watch upon yourself, as your consciouness grows dim. Try to remember that you are awake, but still going to sleep. You will catch the significance of this when you try it – far more than you do now, while reading it.

After you have learned to hold consciousness well up into the hypnagogic state, until you actually are enveloped in sleep, then you must go a step further and construct a proper dream to hold in mind, while going to sleep. Remember: the dream must be constructed so that your are going to be active in it; and further, it must be constructed so that the action you go through will correspond to the route taken by the astral body when projected.

What do you like to do? Swim? Ride in an aeroplane? Go up in a balloon? A ferris-wheel? An elevator?

Be sure and do (in your dream) the thing you like to do. If you select something you do not like, the sensation will interiorize you, for it will be unpleasant. Do that which will give you a sensation which you like, and if you become fully conscious, once you are projected, you will like the sensation which you will actually get from the astral body floating in the air. This will go a long way toward ultimate success— to have the action in the dream of such a nature that you enjoy the sensation. Now let us suppose that you enjoy going up in an elevator. (This is the formula I use.)

You have already learned to hold consciousness up to the time you go to sleep. Lie upon your back. Think within yourself. You are lying upon your back on the floor of an elevator. You are going to lie there quietly and go to sleep, and as you enter sleep the elevator is going to move upward. And you too are going to enjoy the sensation of going up, as you lie upon your back on the floor of the elevator.

Now it is trembling a little, getting ready to go up to the top story of a large building. Slowly, quietly, it is going up, going up, going up! You are conscious that you are moving upward. You are enjoying the sensation to the utmost. It is nearing the top story now. It has stopped. You are going to rise to your feet and walk out of the elevator and round the floor of the upper story of the building. You are going to look all about you, as you walk round, observing everything. Now you are going to walk back into the elevator and he down upon your back on the floor. Slowly you are moving downward, slowly downward, and now you are lying on your back on the floor of the elevator, on the ground floor of the building.

I have stated that this was the dream I constructed for the purpose of inducing the astral body to emerge from the physical.

Now, it is important to use the same dream over and over again; for if you try first one dream and then another, the subconscious will not be impressed with the construction (of the dream) as strongly as if you repeat the same one over and over each night, as you are entering sleep.

Have the dream vividly worked out in your mind, and hold it before you as your consciousness is slowly diminishing; shift yourself right into the elevator just as the moment of unknowingness comes to you; and the astral body will move upward in the elevator; it will upright itself above the shell, just as you dream of standing up when the elevator reaches the top floor; it will move outward, just as you dream you are walking out of the elevator.

Likewise, on the return, as you walk into the elevator, the astral will move to a position directly over the shell; as you he down, the astral will resume the horizontal position; as the elevator lowers itself, the astral body will lower itself also. The dream is a suggestion to your subconscious Will, and that Will acts accordingly. You should be able to remember the dream after awakening. Another advantage of this method is that the astral cable does not annoy one as it does when a projection is induced by other methods. If one can project oneself by dream control, and move some distance away, and then become conscious, one should never know that cord-activity range exists. The big problem lies in gaining consciousness, when once one is projected. Remember that the dream consciousness is not the true consciousness – although you can remember the dream. How to gain true consciousness while of of the body will be discussed in the next chapter.

Tesla once said Mankind is not ready for the great and good. In Colorado Springs I soaked the earth by electricity. Also we can water the other energies, such as positive mental energy. They are in the music of Bach or Mozart, or in the verses of great poets.

Everything is the Light. In one of its rays is the fate of nations, each nation has its ray in that great light source, which we see as the Sun. And remember: no one man, that existed, did not die.

Interview with Nikola Tesla

JOURNALIST: Mr. Tesla, you have gained the glory of the man who got involved in the cosmic processes. Who are you, Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: It is the right question, Mr. Smith, and I will try to give you the right answer to it.

JOURNALIST: Some say you’re from the country of Croatia, from the area called Lika, where together with the people are growing trees, rocks, and starry sky. They say that your home village is named after the mountain flowers and that the house, where you were born, is next to the forest and the church.
TESLA: All it true. I’m proud of my Serbian origin and my Croatian homeland.

JOURNALIST: Futurists say that the Twenty and Twenty-First Century was born in the head of Nikola Tesla. They celebrate conversely magnetic field and sing hymns to Inductions engine. Their creator was called the hunter who caught the light in his net from the depths of the earth, and the warrior who captured fire from heaven. Father of alternating current will make the Physics and Chemistry dominate half the world. Industry will proclaim him as their supreme saint, a banker for the largest benefactors.

In the laboratory of Nikola Tesla, for the first time is broken atom. There is created a weapon that causes the earthquake vibrations. There are discovered black cosmic rays. Five races will pray to him in the Temple of the future, because they had taught a great secret that Empedocles elements can be watered with the life forces from the ethers.
TESLA: Yes, these are some of my most important discoveries. I’m a defeated man. I have not accomplished the greatest thing I could.

JOURNALIST: What is it, Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: I wanted to illuminate the whole earth. There is enough electricity to become a second sun. Light would appear around the equator as a ring around Saturn.
Mankind is not ready for the great and good. In Colorado Springs, I soaked the earth by electricity. Also, we can water the other energies, such as positive mental energy. They are in the music of Bach or Mozart, or in the verses of great poets. In the Earth’s interior, there is energy of Joy, Peace and Love. Their expressions are a flower that grows from the Earth, the food we get out of her and everything that makes man’s homeland. I’ve spent years looking for the way that this energy could influence people. The beauty and the scent of roses can be used as a medicine and the sun rays as food. Life has an infinite number of forms, and the duty of scientists is to find them in every form of matter. Three things are essential in this. All, that I do, is a search for them. I know I will not find them, but I will not give up on them.

JOURNALIST: What are these things?
TESLA: One issue is food. What a stellar or terrestrial energy to feed the hungry on Earth? With what wine watered all thirsty, so that they can cheer in their heart and understand that they are Gods?
Another thing is to destroy the power of evil and suffering in which man’s life passes! They sometimes occur as an epidemic in the depths of space. In this century, the disease had spread from Earth in the Universe.

The third thing is: Is there an excess Light in the Universe? I discovered a star that by all the astronomical and mathematical laws could disappear, and that nothing seems to be modified. This star is in this galaxy. Its light can occur in such density that fits a sphere smaller than an apple, a heavier than our Solar System. Religions and philosophies teach that man can become the Christ, Buddha, and Zoroaster. What I’m trying to prove is wider, and almost unattainable. This is what to do in the Universe, so every being is born as Christ, Buddha or Zoroaster.

I know that gravity is prone to everything you need to fly, and my intention is not to make flying devices (aircraft or missiles), but teach individual to regain consciousness on his wings … Further; I am trying to awake the energy contained in the air. There are the main sources of energy. What is considered as space is just a manifestation of matter that is not awakened. No space on this planet, nor in the Universe.. In black holes, what astronomers talk about, are the most powerful sources of energy and life.

JOURNALIST: On the window of your room in Hotel “Waldorf-Astoria”, on the thirty-third floor, every morning, the birds arrive.
TESLA: A man must be sentimental towards the birds. This is because of their wings. Human had them once, the real and visible!

JOURNALIST: You have not stopped flying since those distant days in Smiljan!
TESLA: I wanted to fly from the roof, and I fell: Children’s calculations could be wrong. Remember, the youth wings have everything in life!

JOURNALIST: Have you ever married? It is not known that you have affection for love or a woman. Photos from the youth show you were a handsome man.
TESLA: Yes. I did not. There are two views: a lot of affection or not at all. The center serves to rejuvenate the human race. Women for certain people nurtures and strengthen its vitality and spirit. Being single does the same to other people. I chose that second path.

JOURNALIST: Your admirers are complaining that you are attacking relativity. The strange is your assertion that the matter has no energy. Everything is imbued with energy, where it is?
TESLA: First was energy, then matter.

JOURNALIST: Mr. Tesla, it’s like when you said that you were born to your father and not on you.
TESLA: Exactly! What about the birth of the Universe? Matter is created from the original and eternal energy that we know as Light. It shone, and there have been appearing star, the planets, man, and everything on the Earth and in the Universe. Matter is an expression of infinite forms of Light, because energy is older than it. There are four laws of Creation. The first is that the source of all the baffling, dark plot that the mind cannot conceive, or mathematics measure. In that plot, fit the whole Universe. The second law is spreading darkness, which is the true nature of Light, from the inexplicable, and  it’s transformed into the Light. The third law is the necessity of the Light to become a matter of Light. The fourth law is: no beginning and no end; three previous laws always take place and the Creation is eternal.

JOURNALIST: In the hostility to the theory of relativity you go so far that you hold lectures against its Creator at your birthday parties..
TESLA: Remember, it is not curved space, but the human mind which cannot comprehend infinity and eternity! If relativity has been clearly understood by its Creator, he would gain immortality, even yet physically if he is pleased.

I am part of light, and it is the music. The Light fills my six senses: I see it, hear, feel, smell, touch and think. Thinking of it means my sixth sense. Particles of Light are written note. O bolt of lightning can be an entire sonata. A thousand balls of lightening are a concert.. For this concert, I have created a Ball Lightning, which can be heard on the icy peaks of the Himalayas.

About Pythagoras and mathematics, a scientist may not and must not infringe of these two. Numbers and equations are signs that mark the music of the spheres. If Einstein had heard these sounds, he would not create theories of relativity. These sounds are the messages to the mind that life has meaning that the Universe exists in perfect harmony, and its beauty is the cause and effect of Creation. This music is the eternal cycle of stellar heavens. The smallest star has completed composition and also, part of the celestial symphony.

The man’s heartbeats are part of the symphony on the Earth. Newton learned that the secret is in geometric arrangement and motion of celestial bodies. He recognized that the supreme law of harmony exists in the Universe. The curved space is chaos; chaos is not music. Einstein is the messenger of the time of sound and fury.

JOURNALIST: Mr. Tesla, do you hear that music?
TESLA: I hear it all the time. My spiritual ear is as big as the sky we see above us. My natural ear I increased by the radar. According to the Theory of Relativity, two parallel lines will meet in infinity. By that Einstein’s curved will straighten. Once created, the sound lasts forever. For a man, it can vanish, but continues to exist in the silence that is man’s greatest power. No, I have nothing against Mr. Einstein. He is a kind person and has done many good things, some of which will become part of the music.

I will write to him and try to explain that the ether exists and that its particles are what keep the Universe in harmony and the life in eternity.

JOURNALIST: Tell me, please, under what conditions Angel adopt on the Earth?
TESLA: I have ten of them. Keep good records vigilant.

JOURNALIST: I will document all your words, Dear Mr. Tesla.
TESLA: The first requirement is a high awareness of its mission and works to be done. It must, if only dimly, exist in the early days. Let us not be falsely modest; Oak knows that it is an oak tree, a bush beside him being a bush. When I was twelve, I have been sure I will get to Niagara Falls. For most of my discoveries I knew in my childhood that I would achieve them, although not entirely apparent … The second condition, to adapt, is the determination. All that I might, I finished.

JOURNALIST: What is the third condition of adjustment, Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: Guidance for all the vital and spiritual energies in labor. Therefore, purification of the many effects and needs that man has. I, therefore, have not lost anything, but just gained.
So I enjoyed every day and the night. Write down: Nikola Tesla was a happy man…
The fourth requirement is to adjust the physical assembly with a work.

JOURNALIST: What do you mean, Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: First, the maintenance of the assembly. Man’s body is a perfect machine. I know my circuit and what’s good for him. Food what nearly all people eat, to me it is harmful and dangerous. Sometimes I visualize that chefs in the world are all in conspiracy against me … Touch my hand.

JOURNALIST: It was cold.
TESLA: Yes. Bloodstream can be controlled and many processes in and around us. Why are you frightened young man?

JOURNALIST: It’s a story that Mark Twain wrote a mysterious stranger, that wonderful book of Satan, inspired by you.
TESLA: The word “Lucifer” is more charming. Mr. Twain likes to joke. As a child, I was healed once by reading his books. When we met here and told him about, he was so touched that he cried. We became friends, and he often came to my lab. Once he requested to show him a machine that by vibration provokes a feeling of bliss. It was one of those inventions for entertainment, what I sometimes like to do. I warned Mr. Twain as not to remain under these vibrations. He did not listen and stayed longer. It ended by being, like a rocket, holding pants, darted into a certain room. It was a diabolically funny, but I kept the seriousness.

But, to adjust the physical circuit, in addition to food, dream is very important. From a long and exhausting work, which required superhuman effort, after one hour of sleep I’d be fully recovered. I gained the ability to manage sleep, to fell asleep and wake up in the time that I have designated. If I do something what I do not understand, I force myself to think about it in my dream, and thus find a solution.

TESLA: The fifth condition of adjustment is memory. Perhaps in the most people, the brain is keeper of knowledge about the world and the knowledge gained through the life. My brain is engaged in more important things than remembering; it is picking what is required at a given moment. This is all around us. It should only be consumed. Everything that we once saw, hear, read and learn, accompanies us in the form of light particles. To me, these particles are obedient and faithful. Goethe’s Faust, my favorite book, I learned by heart in German as a student, and now it can all recite. I held my inventions for years  ‘in my head “, and only then I realized them.

JOURNALIST: You often mentioned the power of visualization.
TESLA: I might have to thank to visualization for all that I invented. The events of my life and my inventions are real in front of my eyes, visible as each occurrence or the item. In my youth, I was frightened of not knowing what it is, but later, I learned to use this power as an exceptional talent and gift. I nurtured it, and jealously guarded. I also made corrections by visualization on most of my inventions and finish them that way, by visualization I mentally solve complex mathematical equations. For that gift I have, I will receive rank High Lama in Tibet.

My eyesight and hearing are perfect and dare to say, stronger than other people. I hear the thunder of a hundred fifty miles away, and I see colors in the sky that others cannot see. This enlargement of vision and hearing, I had as a child. Later I consciously developed.

JOURNALIST: In youth, you have several times been seriously ill. Is it a disease and a requirement to adapt?
TESLA: Yes. It is often the result of a lack of exhaustion or vital force, but often the purification of mind and body from the toxins that have accumulated. It is necessary that a man suffers from time to time. The source of the most disease is in the spirit. Therefore, the spirit and can cure most diseases. As a student, I got sick of cholera that raged in the region of Lika. I was cured because my father finally allowed me to study technology, which was my life. Illusion for me was not a disease, but the mind’s ability to penetrate beyond the three dimensions of the earth.

I had them all my life, and I have received them as all other phenomena around us. Once, in childhood, I was walking along the river with Uncle and said: “From the water will appear the trout, I’ll throw a stone, and it is cut.” That’s what happened. Frightened and amazed, his uncle cried: “Bade retro Satan’s!” He was an educated, and he spoke in Latin … I was in Paris when I saw my mother’s death. In the sky, full of light and music floated are wonderful creatures. One of them had a mother’s character, who was looking at me with infinite love. As the vision disappeared, I knew that my mother died.

JOURNALIST: What is the seventh adjustment, Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: The knowledge of how the mental and vital energy transform into what we want, and achieve control over all feelings. Hindus call it Kundalini Yoga. This knowledge can be learned, for what they need many years or is acquired by birth. The most of them I acquired by birth. They are in the closest connection with a sexual energy that is after the most widespread in the Universe. The woman is the biggest thief of that energy, and thus the spiritual power. I’ve always known that and was alerted. Of myself I created what I wanted: a thoughtful and spiritual machine.

JOURNALIST: A ninth adjustment, Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: Do everything that any day, any moment, if possible, not to forget who we are and why we are on Earth. Extraordinary people who are struggling with illness, privation, or the society which hurts them with its stupidity, misunderstanding, persecution and other problems which the country is full of swamps with insects, leaves behind unclaimed until the end of the work. There are many fallen angels on Earth.

JOURNALIST: What is the tenth adaptation?
TESLA: It is most important. Write that Mr. Tesla played. He played the whole of his life and enjoyed it.

JOURNALIST: Mr. Tesla! Whether it relates to your findings and your work? Is this a game?
TESLA: Yes, dear boy. I have so loved to play with electricity! I always cringe when I hear about the one also the Greek, who stole fire. A terrible story about studding and eagles peck at his liver. Did Zeus did not have enough lightning and thunder, and was damaged for one fervor? There is some misunderstanding … Lightning are the most beautiful toys that can be found. Do not forget that in your text stand out: Nikola Tesla was the first man who discovered lightning.

JOURNALIST: Mr. Tesla, you’re just talking about angels and their adaptation to the Earth.
TESLA: Am I? This is the same. You could write this: he dared to take upon himself the prerogatives of Indri, Zeus, and Peron. Imagine one of these gods in a black evening suit, with the bowler hat and wearing white cotton gloves prepares lightning, fires and earthquakes to the New York City elite!

JOURNALIST: Readers love the humor of our paper. But you confuse me stating that your findings, which have immense benefits for the people, representing the game. Many will frown on it.
TESLA: Dear Mr. Smith, the trouble is that people are too serious. If they were not, they would be happier and much longer would have lived. Chinese proverb says that the seriousness reduces life. Visiting the inn Tai Pe guessed that he visits the Imperial Palace. But that the newspaper readers would not have frowned, let’s get back to things that they consider important.

JOURNALIST: They would love to hear what your philosophy is.
TESLA: Life is a rhythm that must be comprehended. I feel the rhythm and direct on it and pamper it. It was very grateful and gave me the knowledge I have. Everything that lives is related to a deep and wonderful relationship: man and the stars, amoebas’ and the sun, the heart and the circulation of an infinite number of worlds. These ties are unbreakable, but they can be tame and to propitiate and begin to create new and different relationships in the world, and that does not violate the old.

Knowledge comes from space; our vision is its most perfect set. We have two eyes: the earthly and spiritual. It is recommended that it become one eye. The Universe is alive in all its manifestations, as a thinking animal. Stone is a thinking and sentient being, such as plant, beast and a man. A star that shines asked to look at, and if we are not a sizeable self-absorbed we would understand its language and message. His breathing, his eyes and ears of the man must comply with breathing, eyes and ears of the Universe.

JOURNALIST: As you say this, it seems like I hear Buddhist texts, words or Taoist Parazulzusa.
TESLA: That’s right! This means that there are general knowledge and truth that man has always possessed. In my feeling and experience, the Universe has only one substance and one supreme energy with an infinite number of manifestations of life.

The best thing is that the discovery of a secret nature reveals the other. One cannot hide, there are around us, but we are blind and deaf to them. If we emotionally tie ourselves to them, they come to us themselves. There are a lot of apples, but one Newton. He asked for just one apple that fell in front of him.

JOURNALIST: A question that might be set at the beginning of this conversation. What was Electricity for you, Dear Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: Everything is Electricity. First was the light, the endless source from which points out material and distribute it in all forms that represent the Universe and the Earth with all its aspects of life. Black is the true face of Light; only we do not see this. It is remarkable grace to man and other creatures. One of its particles possesses light, thermal, nuclear, radiation, chemical, mechanical and an unidentified energy. It has the power to run the Earth with its orbit. It is true Archimedean lever.

JOURNALIST: Mr. Tesla, you’re too biased towards electricity.
TESLA: Electricity I am. Or, if you wish, I am the electricity in the human form. You are Electricity; too Mr. Smith, but you do not realize it.

JOURNALIST: Is it thus your ability to allow fails of electricity of one million volts trough your body?
TESLA: Imagine a gardener who is attacked by herbs. This would indeed be crazy. Man’s body and brain are made from a large amount energy; in me there is the majority of electricity. The energy, that is different in everyone, is what makes the human “I” or “soul”. For other creatures to their essence, “soul” of the plant is the “soul” of minerals and animals. Brain function and death is manifested in light.

My eyes in youth were black, now blue, and as time goes on and strain the brain gets stronger, they are closer to white. White is the color of heaven. Through my window, one morning, landed a white dove, which I fed. She wanted to bring me a word that she was dying. From her eyes, the light jets were coming out. Never in the eyes of any creature had I not seen so much light, as in that pigeon.

JOURNALIST: Personnel in your lab speak about flashes of light, flames and lightning that occur if you are angry or into a kind of risk.
TESLA: It is the psychic discharge or a warning to be alert. The light was always on my side. Do you know how I discovered the rotating magnetic field and induction motor, which made me became famous when I was twenty-six? One summer evening in Budapest, I watched with my friend Sigetijem sunset. Thousands of fire were turning around in thousands of flaming colors. I remembered Faust and recited his verses and then, as in fog, I saw spinning magnetic field and induction motor. I saw them in the sun!

JOURNALIST: Hotel service is telling that at the time of lightning you isolate into the room and talk to yourselves.
TESLA: I talk with lightning and thunder.

JOURNALIST: With them? What language, Mr.Tesla?
TESLA: Mostly my native language. It has the words and sounds, especially in poetry, what is suitable for it.

JOURNALIST: Readers of our magazine would be very grateful if you would interpret that.
TESLA: The sound does not exist only in the thunder and lightning, but, in the transformation of the brightness and color. A color can be heard. Language is of the words, which means that it is from the sounds and colors. Every thunder and lightning are different and have their names. I call some of them by the names of those who were close to my life, or by those whom I admire.

In the sky, brightness and thunder live my mother, sister, brother Daniel, a poet Jovan Jovanovic Zmaj and other persons of Serbian history. Names such as Isaiah, Ezekiel, Leonardo, Beethoven, Goya, Faraday, Pushkin and all burning fires mark shoals and tangles of lightning and thunder, which does not stop all night bringing to the Earth precious rain and burning trees or villages. There are lightning and thunder, and they are the brightest and most powerful that will not vanish. They are coming back, and I recognize them among the thousands.

JOURNALIST: For you, science or poetry is the same?
TESLA: These are the two eyes of one person. William Blake was taught that the Universe was born from the imagination, that it maintains, and it will exist as long as there is a last man on the Earth. With it was a wheel to which astronomers can collect the stars of all galaxies. It is the creative energy identical to the light energy.

JOURNALIST: Imagination is more real to you than life itself?
TESLA: It gives birth to the life. I have fed by my taught; I’ve learned to control emotions, dreams and visions. I have always cherished as I nurtured my enthusiasm. All my long life I spent in ecstasy. That was the source of my happiness. It helped me during all these years to bear with work, which was enough for the five lives. The best is to work at night because the stellar light and close bond.

JOURNALIST: You said that I was, like every being, the Light. This flatters me, but I confess, I do not quite understand.
TESLA: Why would you need to understand, Mr. Smith? Suffice it to believe it. Everything is light. In one, its ray is the fate of nations, each nation has its ray in what great light source we see as the sun. And remember: no one, who was there, did not die. They transformed into the light, and as such exist still. The secret lies in the fact that the light particles restore their original state.

JOURNALIST: This is the resurrection!
TESLA: I prefer to call it: return to the previous energy. Christ and several others knew the secret. I am searching how to preserve human energy. It is forms of Light, sometimes straight like heavenly light. I have not looked for it for my sake, but for the good of all. I believe that my discoveries make people’s lives easier and more bearable, and channel them to spirituality and morality.

JOURNALIST: Do you think that time can be abolished?
TESLA: Not quite, because the first feature of the energy is that it transforms. It is in perpetual transformation, as clouds of Taoists. But it is possible to leverage the fact that a man preserves consciousness after the earthly life. In every corner of the universe, exist energy of life; one of them is immortality, whose origin is outside of man, waiting for him. The universe is spiritual; we are only half that way. The Universe is more moral than us, because we do not know his nature and how to harmonize our lives with it. I am not scientist; science is perhaps the most convenient way to find the answer to the question that always haunt me, and which my days and nights turned into fire.

JOURNALIST: What’s the matter?
TESLA: How are your eyes brightened! … What I wanted to know is: what happens to a falling star as the sun goes out? Stars fall like dust or seed in this or other worlds. The sun be scattered in our minds, in the lives of many  beings,  what will be reborn as a new light, or cosmic wind scattered in infinity. I understand that this is necessary included in the structure of the Universe. The thing is, though, is that one of these stars and one of these suns, even the smallest, preserves.

JOURNALIST: But, Mr. Tesla, you realize that this is necessary and is included in the constitution of the world!
TESLA: When a man becomes concuss; that his highest goal must be to run for a shooting star and tries to capture it; shall understand that his life was given to him because of this and will be saved. Stars will eventually be capable of catching!

JOURNALIST: And what will happen then?
TESLA: The creator will laugh and say: ”It fall only that you chase her and grab her.”

JOURNALIST: Isn’t all of this contrary to the cosmic pain, which so often you mention in your writings? And what is it cosmic pain?
TESLA: No, because we are on Earth … It is an illness whose existence the vast majority of people are not aware of. Hence, many other illnesses, suffering, evil, misery, wars and everything else what makes human life an absurd and horrible condition. This disease cannot be completely cured, but awareness shall make it less complicated and hazardous. Whenever one of my close and dear people were hurt, I felt physical pain. This is because our bodies are made as of similar material, and our soul related to unbreakable strands. Incomprehensible sadness that overwhelmed us at times means that somewhere, on the other side of this planet, a child or generous man died.

The entire Universe is in certain periods sick of itself, and of us. Disappearance of a star and the appearance of comets affect us more than we can imagine. Relationships among the creatures on the Earth are even stronger, because of our feelings and thoughts the flower will scent even more beautiful or will fall in silence. These truths we must learn in order to be healed. Remedy is in our hearts and evenly, in the heart of the animals that we call the Universe.

Itzhak Bentov was a mechanical engineer, inventor, author and mystic and explorer of cosmic consciousness.

He was able to combine his curious mind with a courageous soul to explore the unknown realms of cosmic consciousness with just wit and humor as his luggage. His plan was to publish some of his work as a comic strip instead of a cosmic trip! Bentov had two ways to prepare himself for his “trips,” which were not drug-induced.

Initially, like Archimedes, he used the “wet method” of soaking in a bathtub full of hot water, going into a “twilight zone” to get flashes or ideas that he scribbled down on a notepad. Later he favored the “drier method” of meditation and relaxed concentration. He wrote:

“I could attain remote reality by simply visualizing myself to be there, and there I was…”

What did Bentov see at the highest levels of cosmic consciousness?

There is no limit to the extent of human cosmic consciousness. It can expand to fill the universe, and then you can talk to the Creator. You can talk to all the beings, who are gods; you have a diplomatic visa to infinity.” – Itzhak Bentov

Bentov described two groups of advanced beings in different areas of the Absolute, the dark void above Manifest Creation, which looks like a translucent, shimmering sphere [which is our multiverse]. This is how he illustrated and described it in his wonderful book:

  1. “Nirvana” (left side) with pure and exalted beings (practically all Easterners) immersed in meditation, experiencing intense eternal bliss caused by pure consciousness flowing unaffected through their bodies out into the Manifest Creation below them. He said they are entitled to their bliss, but will not evolve beyond this state, because once you get in, you can’t get out (see the wall)!
  2. The “Blue-Collar Workers” (right side) have renounced the option of eternal bliss. Pure consciousness flows through their bodies, but they add a slight vibration to it to produce a certain effect on the evolution of particular planets, because they have compassion for the beings on them. They will keep evolving and in time leave the population of Nirvana far behind.

What a fascinating concept! You can take it as a nice metaphor, illustration or story, whatever you like. We also can think of it in fractal terms, as in “as above, so below.”

If pure consciousness is flowing through you right now, how are you modifying it? What are you creating and projecting with your being? What interference pattern or imprint are you leaving to those around you and below you in terms of consciousness?

Is there a manual on how to become a spiritual master?

Bentov and others have said that we each create our own reality. He explained:

“It’s just a trip back home to reunite with your own Self (the observer). We are the creators, the producers and the consumers of our own reality, because we are the consciousness itself.”

That means each of us writes our OWN Manual on How We Are Becoming a Spiritual Master, as we experience, learn and evolve within the multiverse up to the highest level possible.

That also means your path is uniquely yours, so own it. Don’t look for the meaning of life elsewhere. Give it its meaning by who you choose to be and how you choose to do things. Learn as you go. You are no less than a creator being in training in this and every moment of your life, which is eternal.

John Edward Mack M.D. was an American psychiatrist, writer, and professor at Harvard Medical School. He was a Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer, and a leading authority on the spiritual or transformational effects of alien abduction experiences. In a rare interview he discussed the possibility that Alien Grey are in fact humanity’s future. And as much as we have evolved so far from the primate state, what is not to say the if we follow the progression of evolution to its limits man is not becoming what we now fear.

GT: Could you tell us a little about your background?

John: I’m a psychiatrist trained in adult and child psychiatry and psychoanalysis, but I’ve always had an interest in the applications of human understanding or depth psychology – whatever one would want to call it – to problems that are not simply about patients, but about phenomena or subjects that are outside of the consulting room, such as ethnic conflict, or the threat of nuclear war.

In the last fifteen years or so I’ve been interested in what is called transpersonal psychiatry, which means psychiatry that derives from an understanding that human consciousness is more than simply what the brain does but is a factor in the universe in which human beings participate, and that is not located in our brains.

Although our brains play an important part in processing information and communication it is not the primary source of consciousness.

That point of view made it possible for me to then hear about people who are having experiences that did not seem to fit the notions of the material world as the predominant reality, the provable in science.

What I’ve been studying over the past decade although very real as I think reality should be defined, and not necessarily purely materially real, but it’s still nonetheless very real – I would not have been open to this without having done work in the field of transpersonal psychiatry which opens the human mind, opens us to a wider definition, a wider understanding of reality so that there could be room in that.

However surprising, with this phenomenon of so-called alien abduction, my own psyche in a sense had been opened to the point where I could at least listen to it. I didn’t have to reject it out of hand and pigeonhole it into something to which it would not fit. So this is a little bit about how my development made it possible for me to take this work seriously.

Many people who reject this reality out of hand have not gone through that process of opening of consciousness.

GT: You also wrote the book, Abduction in which you interviewed a lot of people in regards to their alien abduction experiences, is that correct?

John: Yes, that was my first book on this subject and it came out in 1994. It was based on the interviews I had done for three to four years. There were some fifty or sixty people that I had worked with and they were principally people in this country.

Since then I have worked with over two hundred people in this country and quite a few other countries, so I think I have a richer understanding of what this phenomenon is about. It doesn’t mean I know what it’s about, because it’s still quite mysterious, but at least patterns begin to emerge.

This is what I tried to identify in this last book, Passport to the Cosmos.

GT: Could you tell us about your findings with your research.

John: First of all, it’s clear that this is not a phenomenon that’s restricted to American or even the western culture. I have in the book medicine men from South Africa and Brazil, and I have talked to people in so many different countries who have had these experiences, so it’s not simply some sort of projection of our aerospace technology oriented minds, not at all.

It may be that the fact we have arrived at a certain level of technology in the culture has contributed to our ability to recognize UFOs and the technologies associated with the abduction phenomenon, but that does not mean that it is somehow the product of western consciousness.

GT: Have you ever had an alien abduction experience?

John: No. That’s an important point because my understanding now of what Barbara Marx Hubbard calls Conscious Evolution, and that is if we can get our egos out of the way as much as possible, we have a potential role in the evolution of consciousness in the sense of an emergence of the full spiritual and human potential.

That means an ability to put our narrow economic and egoistic motivation to a degree out of the way and also to discover what is our own particular calling in that larger collective evolution.

Each of us has a place to contribute to the whole and my place is to be a witness for people who have had these experiences and a bridge, from them, to the mainstream culture, but not as a direct experiencer. I’m like, hopefully, a trusted servant in reporting the experiences of other people and then in that way I am sometimes able to give them a voice where they would otherwise not have a voice, because I have a position in the culture which enables me to travel with them and have them speak in public and write, which they might not be able to do on their own.

So in a sense, I’m a person who augments the message by my witnessing role.

GT: In your book you speak about the UFOs coming from what you refer to as the subtle realm. Could you explain the subtle realm?

John: Yes, we in the west – and this is only recently and certainly is not true in far eastern philosophy and religion and in Native American spirituality, and wasn’t true in western psychology and spirituality until the last three hundred years – in these last three hundred years we have gradually separated the material world as an absolute, and the psyche, the spirit, as an absolute. But they’re quite separate [in that worldview].

They’re not all one as we’re coming to see more and more.

Therefore, at least in western philosophy and psychology something is either in the physical material world or it’s in the world of the mind, imagination, spirit, the unseen, and those two realms are altogether separate.

What the western restriction of consciousness of this represents and does not allow for, is something that seems to come from someplace unseen, someplace beyond our ability to observe it, someplace in another dimension – whatever you want to call that – what David Bohm called “from the Implicate Order” or as Grof calls from “The Holotropic World,” meaning toward wholeness, or from the spirit world. There are many terms for this.

But this western dichotomizing that I just spoke of does not have any place for something which originates in that other realm, which is what I am calling the subtle realm; the unseen the fourth or fifth or sixth or whatever dimension, and that can come from those dimensions and manifest in the physical world.

Now, when things do that – to stay with the subtlety theme for a moment – when things do that, they don’t manifest in the physical world the same way that what science usually studies, manifests. In other words, when science studies curing an illness with an antibiotic you can take somebody’s temperature, you can administer the antibiotic, you can see what happens to the blood count, and you can actually physically prove and demonstrate without any question by physical means that they got better.

If there is a storm you can count the number of houses that blew over. If you experiment with what animals can do, you can prove what they can or cannot do, and that kind of thing.

But in this situation, the physical manifestations though apparently real are not robust enough to be able to prove them.

I’ll give you an example: Budd Hopkins and others – and I’ve seen this too – have shown or found that people who have these experiences will often end up with nose bleeds, cuts on their bodies, little scoop mark lesions, funny little bumps that they think are little objects that may have been implanted under the skin, but none of this, although real, is robust enough to pass the criteria of mainstream science, because you cannot prove that those cuts were from aliens.

You can’t catch the alien in the act. There’s nothing about those cuts that is so bizarre that they could not have been caused by something else, and since this culture finds this whole thing rather far out they want to stretch to something else rather than that the aliens did it or whatever these energies are.

So the subtle realm is the place it comes from, and the manifestations are subtle – not in the sense that experiencers don’t get very distressed when they have these experiences, that’s not so subtle – but subtle in terms of our ability to log it, to prove it, to even document it in sufficiently clear-cut ways as physical manifestations to satisfy the requirements of mainstream science.

It’s too subtle in that sense, so you have that kind of double sense in which this is subtle.

GT: Are the aliens helping us?

John: Well, helping, again is one of those human centered words. They certainly are awakening us and the effect of that awakening could be very helpful. They don’t operate by direct assistance in the way that somebody comes and helps you physically carry a load on your back. It’s all about consciousness again.

They may arouse people to be more concerned for the earth by showing them images of apocalyptic images of destruction of the earth’s living systems in a way that leaves the experiencers viscerally shaken and then from that they become responsible stewards. But this is not a direct intervention on their part. They work through change in human consciousness. That’s another example of the subtle route – by subtle I don’t mean that it isn’t powerful or energetically very important.

By subtle, I mean, subtle in terms of the requirement of something being in the gross material world.

GT: Could you tell us about your future plans.

John: Well, what I’m most interested in now is the larger question of human experiences that are anomalous, in other, words, they don’t fit what’s supposed to be reality.

What we tend to do in psychiatry or in this society is when people have experiences that are not within the familiar or prescribed realms, we tend to look for something wrong with that person that we attribute to psychopathology, or influences of the media, or the needs of the collective, rather than to say, well, maybe there’s something about this experience which has to be taken seriously as being valid in its own right.

As Alfred North Whitehead said,

“There is a provoker in the cosmos and we are receivers. It’s not simply that we’re creating this entirely from within.”

So I’m interested in the whole range of experiences like that: near death experiences, people who observe crop circles, the whole area of parapsychology where there is clear evidence that somehow the collective psyche can effect random number generators in a way where there’s no known mechanisms.

In other words, anomaly meaning, that there’s no known physical relationship between the observer and the physical objects that are effected. The effect of prayer, for instance, on patients in controlled studies that have been done where people who are prayed for seem to do better even though nobody knows that they’re being prayed for. There’s a whole range of anomalies which I believe if we pull them together, we’ll see a picture that is utterly shattering to the purely materialist world view.

You mentioned to me earlier about Ramtha, well, channeling is a tough one. I don’t get into channeling too much even though I think sometimes very important information comes to people from unknown sources like that.

The channeling is so particularly suspect in the western materialist world view because if you don’t have a place for the fact that there are spirits in the universe to begin with, or beings, gods or whatever that can communicate to us, if that basic premise isn’t accepted, then to try to include channeling as one of the anomalous experiences, it is tricky.

I mean, I think as part of the human experience, it doesn’t fit the mainstream definitions of reality and communication and relationship.

I brought that up because you spoke of Ramtha, but it would apply to anything of the “ascended masters,” or “the Emmanuel.” There’s a huge, huge rich human experience with communications from other entities which we call channeling.

They are a good example of another kind of anomalous. But it’s not anomalous in the sense that it’s considered odd around the world – most cultures wouldn’t have such a problem with it as ours does – but it’s anomalous for this culture because it doesn’t fit our purely materialist notions of communication.

I want to take all these things that are not supposed to be in the western world view and show them and get some kind of classification, or taxonomy of non-ordinary experiences and show that there are so many that really don’t fit the purely materialist mechanistic world view.

I think this can help to bring about the change in world view to understand the universe – much more as mysterious dimensions that go way beyond what we can prove. I think that also means to discover that we are much more connected with the ultimate creative principle, the divine goddess, and from that we can rediscover our sacred relationship with the earth and other living things.

So it would give us pause in terms of how we treat the planet.

That’s where I see my own research going, to look more deeply into the whole range of anomalies that are right in front of our eyes in a way, and try to get a rational organizing of what all of those are and what is their collective impact on our current world view.

GT: Is there anything you would like to add?
John: I think that behind this strange phenomenon – at least it seems strange to the western mind, not to native cultures – is some kind of worry; a cosmic worry about this species, us, and what we’re doing to the earth.
The information that the experiencers get from this subtle realm, the aliens, or whatever you want to call it, is consistently about the earth, that the earth is in terrible peril, that it is not okay for this one species to destroy God’s work at the rate we’re doing it, and the other living forms that we’re annihilating at a terrific rate.
So it’s like we’re getting some kind of feedback from the cosmos that is awakening us to ourselves and how we’re out of balance in the web of nature.

Three States

We live most of our life through three states of consciousness: waking, dreaming and sleeping.

In the waking state of consciousness, we experience the world through the five senses. We seek elevation and joy from these senses. If any one of the senses is missing, the entire dimension of that sense is lost. One who cannot hear is bereft of the whole arena of sound. Similarly, he who cannot see is deprived of all the beautiful sights and colors. So, the sense is more important and much bigger than the object of the sense.

Meditation practice improves mindfulness while awake, and while you sleep.

Comparison of dreams with waking consciousness has traditionally focused on claims that the dreaming mind maintains only a simple awareness of perception and emotion, but lacks the self-reflective awareness and metacognition, that is, awareness of one`s current state of consciousness, which is assumed in wake. Lucid dreams are distinct in that the dreamer does have insight into the present state of consciousness, and is able to maintain some awareness of the fact that they are dreaming, along with a varying degree of control over their thoughts, actions, and dream qualities. While this distinction is tied to the dream state, the truth is that even in waking we often wander around in a state of semi-consciousness, simply perceiving and experiencing emotions as they arise without affording much reflective awareness or attention to the present moment.

The practice of mindfulness is aimed at improving an individual’s capacity to maintain awareness of the present moment, with an open and non-judgemental mind, and to diminish automatic habits of mind-wandering and other auto-pilot behaviors. Evidence shows that increased mindfulness is associated with enhanced well-being and decreased negative rumination. Taken together, by improving attention to the present moment’s consciousness while cultivating an accepting attitude, mindfulness may similarly increase the likelihood and frequency of lucid dream experiences, a dream state characterized by both awareness and positivity.

Presence has been linked to improvements in a wide range of cognitive abilities, perhaps due to the role of cognitive control in maintaining focused attention and continuously monitoring the stream of consciousness. While mindfulness training does not explicitly aim to enhance awareness in the dreaming state, there are many traditions which have linked cultivating awareness in wake with lucid dreaming at night; lucid dreaming itself has even been considered an ideal state for meditative awareness (particularly in Tibetan and Toaist Dream Yoga traditions).

Further, while many meditation practices do not specifically define mindfulness, they often have similar aims of promoting awareness and acceptance. Thus, the authors investigated a potential influence of prior meditation practice, even those not explicitly defined as mindfulness practices, on lucid dream frequency.

Higher awareness cultivated during daytime is also reflects in higher awareness of one’s mental states while dreaming. Future research may seek to delineate which types of meditation practice are most directly influential on dreaming, and perhaps in the future, the possibilities of practicing meditation even from within the lucid dream state.
