With recent stories in The New York Times, there’s newfound interest in what might be coming from elsewhere. It’s as per what I gave my hosts to send out in invites for my talks about crop circles:
The God of Science Took a Nap ..and nothing else has awakened the world to the magic of the crop circle phenomenon…
When news of the crop circle phenomenon hit, in 1990, science turned its back. Here’s Wikipedia today: “a consensus among scientists that the circles are man-made. (What to say about one citation being Skeptical Inquirer, and the other being a professor from Oregon who writes debunking articles in high-minded publications like Nature?)
Two scientists no longer with us, who had world-class credentials, believed otherwise, and they are a lifeline to what is one of the most, if not THE most, fascinating thing going on in the world. I’ll show you the phenomenon through their eyes. The evidence is there. All that needs to happen is for attention to be paid.
Although hoaxers have come to do beautiful, well-designed formations, there are aspects to the circles that go far beyond stomping down crop. But, sleeping science is ignoring the results from a lab run by one of its own, who published more than 50 articles in scientific journals.
What would happen if we discovered other intelligent life? With lab reports indicating we can’t make the changes to the biology of the plants or to the chemistry of the soil of crop circles, we don’t need to shake hands with aliens to change our mindset. As John Mack, one of the open-minded scientists, said, “Crop circles are the most extraordinary crossover from the other dimension in the history of the human race.” What would happen if this were accepted as true is something mind-bending to talk about!
“Our future is shaped from the story we host in the present … When the mind of humanity changes, everything changes.” This is from the Editor’s Note below, the must-read lead piece in the latest issue of Turning Point, the Journal of the Conscious Elders Network. It’s about the need for a new story that moves us into “the beautiful world our hearts know is possible,” and it’s so good that I’m using it as a draw to a new Facebook group to deal with making that change. We work on problems piecemeal, with very little attention on the worldview that keeps them all in place. If you resonate with what Joseph Jastrab wrote, join this group to look to how to get humanity on the same page where we tell a story about who we are and what we are doing here that underlies and impels the kinder, gentler world we must move into. The group is a place to inspire and to be inspired to wake the world up to the reality in which we are one.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre the falcon cannot hear the falconer; things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, the blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned; the best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand…
William Butler Yeats penned these lines in his poem, The Second Coming, nearly 100 hundred years ago in the aftermath of the First World War. His words resurface today as a disquieting commentary on our times, yet also as a reminder that every historical age faces what it experiences as unprecedented threats to its welfare and existence. The broad view of history suggests that each generation must claim the revelation at hand—even as we remember that we’re certainly not the first, nor will be the last, to be challenged by this calling.
Leslie Kean, one of the SUE Speaks heroes, is central to this story.
“The New York Times piece hinted that they actually have recovered materials. So when those facts might spill out, we might get material confirmation there’s something going on. Until that time, until we have credible scientists telling us this material is otherworldly, I think short of aliens visiting us, that will be the next revelation…Imagine the impact on religion. On belief. You can throw so many things out. Certainly our anthropocentric view of the world.”
‘X-Files’ Creator Chris Carter on That New York Times UFO Expose: Told You So
I’m looking for your suggestions. In an ongoing quest for how to shift our worldview, I want muses, mentors, heroes known or not, who send you into rapture, so to speak. It’s not just people who do good or who write well; I’m looking for a quality of presence that drops you into a more elemental place in yourself.
I will be cooking up ways to get such people into the public eye so the world at large becomes inspired and uplifted by them, and I’d appreciate it if you turned me on to more of them than you’ll see in this video.
For more on the enlightening voices featured in the video:
I got involved with crop circles because if we’re not alone we would have to re-think reality. What else, besides crop circles coming from elsewhere, can change our worldview? When I saw this Indiegogo campaign for a documentary that’s looking for finishing funds, I knew I’d found a game-changer.
Over sixty school children & other witnesses shared an extraordinary experience in Ruwa, Zimbabwe, in ’94, in which they saw an unusual craft & beings land near Ariel School. This much-anticipated documentary explores the event, and its aftermath in the lives of those who witnessed it.
You can see from the video how compelling this story is. Little children make credible witnesses. If what they saw was accepted as real, we would have the biggest story ever told. This film is in good hands and I am urging people to contribute to the Indiegogo campaign to get it finished.
The late great John Mack, who was head of the Psychiatry Department at Harvard, who is in this film authenticating the genuineness of the children’s experience and for whose work I hosted a fundraiser in 2001, is in my crop circle documentary, What on Earth?. You can see my movie free if you have Amazon Prime, but you need to get the DVD to see a tribute to John Mack that’s bonus material.
On Saturday night I shot this little video for Instagram when spoken-word poet, IN-Q, filled the 1,600-seat Theater at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles with his brilliant performance that had the audience cheering. On Monday, I was watching the The Today Show when lo and behold there was a commercial for A&E by IN-Q! I can say “I knew him when” he performed at my Ex TEDx West Hollywood, Brother Can You Spare a Paradigm? event.
In the Beginning there was Light is a wonderful documentary! I had a screening of it at my house and fell in love with the filmmaker, Peter Straubinger, who is a well-known film critic in Austria and shares my sensibility about the state of the world. This film is about people who live on air – believe it or not, no food, no water. His movie is a big hit in Europe but hasn’t gotten much play in the States. There’s a crowdfunding campaign to dub the film in English, and I love the little video he’s made that talks about why this film can change our consciousness. With only 12 days to go with his campaign, you can make $25 donation for which you get a $25 DVD and more!
I am jazzed by an opportunity fate has presented to open people’s minds, and this is a call to enroll you in helping. With the enormous outreach TED has, I’d like to hitch my wagon to them re-opening the case they had against me. What I’d like to use for that is the still ongoing viral spread of a talk that caused them to cancel my license for a TEDx production that was two weeks away from delivery. I went on to produce TEDx West Hollywood under my own auspice, and since then have been looking for any chance to get TED to publicly reconsider what they had done. If they posted the talks they objected to, the public could have a conversation about what belongs in the realm of appropriate subject matter versus the woo woo they had branded me with.
The gift I’ve been given is the talk that Russell Targ gave, which all of a sudden and without any promotion has hit 1,296,966 views and has 3,755 comments! This is evidence that it’s a topic worth spreading, that’s enlightening and moving people rather than belonging in the garbage dump that TED relegated it to. I’ve asked TED, with no response from them, to post that talk and one other, by Larry Dossey, that they also objected to, and to ask their audience what they think about the appropriateness of putting these talks on a TED stage. This would have far-reaching implications because right now Wikipedia is distortedly labeling things that don’t conform to the scientific materialism, that is taken for gospel today, as pseudoscience. This exclusive credence to what is external and objective helps keep our worldview anchored in greed instead of in the compassion we would feel if we recognized the interconnection of everything that these talks tune us into.
