In February and March 1974, Philip K. Dick experienced a series of visions of an information-rich “pink light” beam that transmitted directly into his consciousness. A year after the events Dick summarized the experiences that would pervade his writing for the final eight years of his life:
“March 16, 1974: It appeared – in vivid fire, with shining colors and balanced patterns – and released me from every thrall, inner and outer.”
“March 18, 1974: It, from inside me, looked out and saw the world did not compute, that I – and it – had been lied to. It denied the reality, and power, and authenticity of the world, saying, This cannot exist; it cannot exist.”
“March 20, 1974: It seized me entirely, lifting me from the limitations of the space-time matrix; it mastered me as, at the same time, I knew that the world around me was cardboard, a fake. Through its power of perception I saw what really existed, and through its power of no-thought decision, I acted to free myself. It took on in battle, as a champion of all human spirits in thrall, every evil, every Iron Imprisoning thing.”
The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world’s most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History.
Eckhart Tolle is the author of the massive best-seller The Power of Now. In this interview he describes his fascinating journey towards inner peace.
One night in 1977, at the age of 29, after having suffered from long periods of suicidal depression, Tolle says he experienced an inner transformation. That night he awakened from his sleep, suffering from feelings of depression that were almost unbearable, but then experienced a life-changing epiphany.
This recent documentary from The Learning Channel updates research which supports Erich von Däniken’s theory of ancient aliens which he first developed in the ground-breaking 1968 book Chariots of the Gods.
Nanoscience is the study of phenomena and manipulation of materials at the nanoscale (a nanometer is a unit of measure so small it takes two of them to measure the width of a strand of DNA), where properties differ significantly from those at a larger scale. The strange world of nanoscience – it can take you into atoms and beyond the stars. Narrated by Stephen Fry.
Peter Russell’s award-winning video, based on a live audio-visual presentation in 1983. He explores the idea that the Earth is an integrated, self-regulating living organism and asks what function humanity might have for this planetary being.
It suggests that we stand on the threshold of a major leap in evolution, as significant as the emergence of life itself, and the essence of this leap is inner spiritual evolution. Moreover, Peter Russell maintains that it is only through such a shift in consciousness that we will be able to manage successfully the global crisis now facing us.
Just how small are atoms? And what’s inside them? The answers turn out to be astounding, even for those who think they know. This fast-paced animation uses spectacular metaphors (imagine a blueberry the size of a football stadium!) to give a visceral sense of the building blocks that make our world.
For the documentary “I Know What I Saw” director James Fox assembled some of the most credible UFO witnesses from around the world to testify at The National Press Club in Washington D.C.
They were Air Force Generals, US astronauts, military pilots, commercial pilots, government and FAA officials from seven countries. Their accounts reveal a secret U.S. operation with the aim to confiscate and hoard substantiating evidence from close encounters to the extent that even Presidents have failed to get straight answers.
