Wisdom Bites: Listen to Intuition and Feel Intrinsic Goodness

Wisdom Bite:
Listen to Intuition and Feel Intrinsic Goodness

 

Why Tune Intuition?

We can benefit from tuning our intuition to experience a sense of intrinsic goodness and divine consciousness. With positively-tuned intuition, we can more clearly recognize how best to solve problems, make decisions, and make plans.  We can also gain a heightened sense of purpose, meaning, value and connection in our lives.

In western society, intuition receives less public acclaim and recognition than rational logic.  Greater respect and admiration given to logical, Boolean ways of thinking than intuitive impressions and insights.  Intuition is often viewed as ‘mere luck’.

Happiness is Found in the Unmeasurables

Ironically, those who base their lives more on measurables are not happier than those who focus primarily on unmeasurables.  You can test this for yourself by writing a list on one side of a piece of things people live for that are measurable.  On the other side, write down things people love that are unmeasurable.  Things we can measure include: amounts of money, cars, houses, and other tangible stuff.  Unmeasurables include:  love, purpose, meaning and other intangibles.  When the lists are complete, ask yourself whether you are happier with the measurables or the unmeasurables.

Our intuition can help us stay on track with the intangibles, and help us realize more fulfilled, joyful lives.  The intuitive mind can thus be viewed as a sacred gift, and the rational mind works well as an excellent faithful servant.  All great discoveries and inventions–and all great relationships–spring forth from intuitive, rather than logical, thought.  And intuitive thinking is aligned with non-measurable feelings of purpose, meaning, and emotions such as love and gratitude.

Strengthen Intuition

You can listen more deeply to intuition by spending quiet time in nature, without goals or activities, just being in an observational state of mind.  You can also pay attention to your dreams upon awakening.  I find it helpful to meditate on my intention to receive messages in dreams before I go to sleep.  Meditation can also be a powerful way to strengthen intuition.  I enjoy many types of meditation, such as clearing my mind meditation, and walking meditation.

Connect with Intrinsic Goodness

When you listen, you may be surprised by unexpected information, thoughts, feelings and ideas that come through.  Some may be helpful, but you might notice some–such as fears–do not seem so helpful.  We can rise above fears by regaining our to connection with intrinsic goodness.  You can tell by how fearful you are feeling how well you are connecting with a sense of intrinsic goodness at the heart of everything.  You can reconnect with intrinsic goodness by remembering evidence of it in your life, such as with beloved pets or family members, or in nature.

The more attention you pay to what you are most grateful for, the better you can recognize how much more there is to feel deeply grateful for.  You can feel such depth of gratitude for every blessing in your life that you enter into a state of reverence–of divine bliss.  Such blissful joy is not dependent on external situations, and is available at any time, wherever you are.

I Just Learned I Died in Another Reality

One of the most astonishing types of reality shifts is the Alive Again phenomenon, in which someone is witnessed as being alive after having previously been reported dead.  And without a doubt, the most stunning type of Alive Again experience is one in which you yourself are the person that people heard had died–and this year was the first time I heard from someone reporting that I had died–fortunately to come back and be Alive Again!

I’ve researched numerous cases of people being reported dead, only later to be witnessed very much alive, with one of the earliest reports being that of the actor Larry Hagman, who was an actor in the TV show, “Dynasty.”  I include that one in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, as well as my experience seeing my roommate’s dead cat very much alive again. 

Ashes in 1983

My first Alive Again experience occurred in the 1980’s when my neighbor’s cat, Ashes, was run over by a car and killed… only to appear in my backyard a couple of weeks later!  I was flabbergasted, to say the least.  My husband reacted normally at first to seeing the cat, until I reminded him, “Ashes DIED a couple of weeks ago!”  My husband rubbed his chin and recalled more details, without any prompts from me.  “Oh, yeah… he was hit by a car, wasn’t he?”  I spent an hour petting and talking with Ashes, since I never thought I’d see him again after he’d died.  He had previously kept himself immaculately groomed (prior to being alive again), and he was a bit scruffier and greasier, as if he’d suddenly become a bit arthritic, and now had trouble washing himself and keeping his fur as fluffy and attractive as he had before.  I’d heard from my roommate that Ashes had died, after having been hit by a car, when I’d asked her where he was.  I had been living in the same house with that roommate, Kathryn, and her cat Ashes, for many years, and then had moved directly across the street, where I’d been delighted to continue getting to visit with Ashes most every day.  It occurs to me that having a bit of distance between my old apartment where I’d lived in the same house with Ashes, and my new apartment across the street may have provided just enough of a gap by which I could experience Kathryn telling me why I was no longer seeing Ashes come to visit in my garden–and then a couple of weeks later, be astonished to see Ashes alive again!

 

How I Received News of My Death

Imagine my surprise when I received an email this past month from someone named Steve, who said he had a very unusual experience that he wanted to share with me:

Hi Cynthia,

I have an unusual story to tell you in regard to the Mandela Effect. My name is Steve Boucher and I’m from St.Catharines, Ontario.  I’m 63.  I have had several occurrences of the Mandela Effect in my life over the years, but none like the most recent one.  I watched your interview with Regina Meredith on Gaia TV and have been a fan of your work for a while now.  Shortly after the interview with Regina, I decided to visit your Facebook page to learn more.  Upon arriving at your Facebook page, I was greeted with a message from your husband stating that he regretted to inform us that you had passed away and that you had been ill for quite a while.  I was shocked to read this news and immediately responded offering my condolences.  I remember feeling this great sadness come over me, as I had very much enjoyed your work.

A month or so later, I noticed a new video of yours on YouTube and was amazed to see that it was a recent video.  Then I started to notice more recent videos popping up on YouTube. It didn’t take me long to realize that you were still alive!  I realized then, that I must have shifted to a different timeline in which you had not passed away.  I knew then, that I had to write to you and tell you this story, as strange as it sounds.  I am grateful to have shifted to a timeline in which you are alive and continuing to bring videos to the public about the Mandela Effect and time shifting.  Hope you don’t think I’m crazy. I just had to tell you.

My response to Steve’s email was:

Wow–that is a DOOZY of a reality shift!  I am so glad you and I are both today in a reality where I am alive and well–and no, I don’t think you’re crazy.  This is the first time I’ve heard from someone reporting that they’d seen believable evidence that I’d died, and then seen me alive again, yet it does bring to mind another related type of reality shift. I’ve heard from people who tell me that they are certain I did not exist previously in their experienced realities, since if I did, they would surely have come across my website and YouTube videos, yet I had not.

I’ve been interviewed twice now by Regina Meredith for GaiaTV, most recently with a show about high energy money that aired in early 2019.  Since you are writing to me about this matter this year in 2019, am I correct in surmising that my death after long illness that you experienced was this year, in 2019?  I’m also curious if you recall any other details.

I then received Steve’s response in reply:

I don’t think I’ve seen the new high energy money video with Regina yet. I think this was shortly after the previous video you did with her. Although, it was in 2019 that I noticed this. I find in most of my observations of the Mandela Effect,  often the memories are a little obscured. Sometimes it is difficult to clearly remember specific details. Another thing I have noticed, is that a certain number of the instances seem to center around the death of a person. I’ve also noticed that when these types of incidents occur, people associated with the event, seem to disappear and become very difficult to track down to ask them how they remember it. It’s almost as though when there is a reality shift, especially if it relates to a death, all the loose ends relating to the old timeline are mysteriously tied up, making it almost impossible to get confirmation. Have you noticed this? It’s almost as if there is some kind of intelligence cleaning up any evidence that things were different before the shift occurred.

After receiving Steve’s emails, I went back to see when that first interview I did with Regina Meredith aired, and it looks like that it was originally planned to be released in mid-November 2016, but going back to check some of my notes, it looks like it likely aired in one of the first days of January 2017.  At that time, I had been publishing YouTube videos each month until I became very sick with a respiratory infection starting in December 2016, and thus there is a gap of several months between my YouTube video of November 23, 2016, Mandela Effect VS Manifestation (before I got very sick) and the next one I did, Many Possible Realities and Mandela Effect, on April 3, 2017, once I was feeling well enough to get back into creating videos.  I had been so ill in December 2016 that I commented to just a few closest friends and family that I felt I’d been close to death.

How it Feels to be ‘Alive Again’

I have a clear sense that I’ve experienced Divine Love and Divine Grace.  During the time I had been so ill, I was aware of the fragility of life.  Realizing that I’m now in a unique position to know how it feels to be Alive Again, my first emotional responses are of great gratitude and thanks, with a sense of reverence.  I have renewed my personal commitment to keep a pure heart, making a daily meditative and prayerful practice of requesting assistance from God / Divine Source to purify my heart and keep it pure, so that all I feel in my heart is a sense of Divine Love and Joy.

To me, this incident is a great deal bigger than most all the other types of reality shifts I report in the monthly RealityShifters ezine.  And I feel very grateful to Steve and all others who felt I might die and had an adverse emotional reaction to that possibility.  I know of two other friends who, in addition to Steve, also were aware that I might almost die at that time, about two years ago.

One thing I’ve noticed when having a “No!” reaction to hearing news of someone’s death, to be followed later by them being alive again is that it’s entirely possible that people connected through collective consciousness are making a kind of vote on the matter.  I thus was especially grateful to hear news that some people were alive again after I’d heard reports of their death, including:  Larry Hagman, Jane Goodall, and Benicio del Toro–and my roommate’s cat, Ashes.  While not everyone I hear of dying subsequently is alive again, I’m just grateful for those that I have experienced being alive again so far in my life.  The reason I attribute such shared awareness and “No!” votes to altering reality is that I witnessed a similar effect once in my household when our beloved elderly family dog appeared to be getting cataracts.  I noticed this on my own one day, and emotionally felt, “No! This can’t be happening to our dear dog!” and almost immediately, his eyes looked bright and clear. Then my daughter told me one day, “Bad news about the dog.”  I immediately inquired, “Is it about his eyes?” and replied that, “It sometimes looks like he’s getting cataracts, but then we can feel we don’t wish that to occur, and it reverses out.”  A similar discussion then followed with my husband, and after that, none of us ever witnessed our dog’s eyes clouding over again.

Because I’ve witnessed the benefit of shared collective consciousness assisting the wellbeing of others (such as my family with our dog’s vision), I am now feeling grateful to all those who would not wish me to have died. 

 

Mandela Effects Go Far Back in Time

In Steve’s correspondence with me related to my being Alive Again, he raised the subject of changes to the Bible, going back thousands of years.  Steve wrote:

There is one Mandela Effect that completely baffles me. It is perhaps the oldest one discovered. It would be the biblical scripture of Isaiah 11:6. I was raised as a Christian and have a strong Christian background. I left the church and abandoned Christianity over a decade ago, after reading some books by author Bart D. Ehrman on the origins of Christianity and the bible. But, that’s another story. The scripture found in Isaiah 11:6 has changed.  I remember it reading that ‘the lion will lie down with the lamb.’  Now, it reads, ‘the wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid…’ I knew that scripture well, so much so that I did a pastel painting of the scene once, with a lion lying down with a lamb.  Ask anyone who knows the Bible well, and they will tell you that it was the ‘lion’ that lied down with the lamb, not the wolf.

I have looked up that scripture in many different versions of the bible and they all say the wolf will dwell with the lamb now.  Even the oldest bibles now say this. I have a very old one that is falling apart.  I bought it because the illustrations in it were done by Gustav Dore, who is one of my favorite artists.  It reads the same way. This shows that the Mandela Effect can actually be retroactive, changing thousands of years of history.  The implications of this are staggering.

Isaiah 11:6 (KJV)
The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

The passage above is one of the most well known and most quoted verses in the Bible yet some claim that this is correct. It is not! This verse should read, “The lion shall lie down with the lamb…”

It makes me wonder about time travel. Could it have been possible for someone to have gone back in time and influenced Isaiah to write the scripture differently? This is one possibility that might explain how something like this could change history and have a ripple effect that could completely rewrite history and many would never be aware of it.

I also recall the Bible passage about the lion laying down with the lamb, and recall having heard it exclusively mentioned that way, with no mention about a wolf lying down with the lamb.  I know of an artist, Kimberly-Lynn Hanson, who recently had a Mandela effect gallery showing in which she invites viewers to consider how some Mandela effects may be ‘closer to truth.’  These are presented like brain-teaser puzzles, and now that way of viewing Mandela effects has me wondering how it might be possible that a “wolf lying down with the lamb” might be closer to truth.  When I think about this particular example, the first thing that comes to my mind is that wolves and lambs have often historically been found living closer together than lions and lambs.  Lions are native to Africa, and their natural prey has historically consisted of wild animals such as gazelles, rather than tame farm animals such as sheep.

There appears to be no limit on how far back in time Mandela effects are capable of going, and this could go a long way to helping explain how our universe is so amazingly off-the-charts unlikely to have come into being ‘accidentally’ or ‘randomly.’  With such a built in collective consciousness ‘voting’ mechanism as reality shifts and Mandela effects seem to provide, we begin to get a sense of how there truly is a hidden order of intrinsic goodness and consciousness operating everywhere, and every-when.

So yes, I do believe it’s possible that the Bible can now have been written differently–and just about everything that’s so far occurred can also have been done differently.  I include a section near the beginning of my book, Quantum Jumps, about how our appreciation and understanding of quantum logic and how quantum jumps can and do occur is about to transform every field of study–including medicine and our courts of law, and not just constrained to various fields of science.  We already witness that there have been sudden shifts in the evolutionary stages of plants and animals–and to me, quantum jumps helps explain the otherwise inexplicable typical lack of ‘missing links’ along the evolutionary trails.  Scientists have even witnessed in laboratory settings that, for example, lactose-intolerant bacteria have mutated in a single generation to suddenly, inexplicably, be able to digest lactose when that was their only source of food in their petri dish environments.

The clues that there might exist a science of miracles has been with us literally for millions of years–yet thanks to quantum physics, we are only just now beginning to fully appreciate what this actually means, and how it might really work.

 

Dr. Yasunori Nomura with Cynthia Sue Larson

Alive Again and Suddenly Appearing

Equally intriguing to me and possibly very related to these Alive Again reality shift experiences are those in which people seem to pop out of nowhere.  I noticed that physicist Dr. Yasunori Nomura definitely didn’t exist in my realities at the time I was researching and writing my book, “Quantum Jumps” in 2013, since I would have found his research papers and published works in the fields I was investigating, right alongside his colleague, Raphael Bousso, whose work I do cite in Quantum Jumps.  I was able to tell Dr. Nomura this in person when I met him to chat and have tea after seeing him at a showing of the 2013 film, “Particle Fever” at UC Berkeley in 2014, and Yasunori seemed to appreciate the possibility that these sorts of macro-scale quantum events really can and do happen, and such might be the case with his sudden existence in my realities.  I have been told by several people, starting around late 2010 that they were absolutely 100% certain I didn’t use to exist in their realities prior to that time, since they definitely would have heard of me and my website and books and research–which at that point in time had been around for a decade.

Physics Experiment Challenges Objective Reality

I’m fascinated by news this past month of exciting results from a quantum physics experiment that according to the MIT Technology Review appears to provide evidence that two people can observe the exact same event, see two different things happen, and both be correct.

Observers Witness the Same Event Differently

Physicists at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh succeeded in bringing a classic Gedankenexperiment (thought experiment) out of the realm of pure conjecture and into the real, physical world of a physics laboratory.  The thought experiment requires two people to observe one single photon–which is a quantum, or indivisible, unit of light.  Quantum particles can behave as either particles, or as waves, settling into one state or the other (particle or wave) at the precise moment it is observed.  All the rest of the time when the particle is not being observed by someone, it exists in a ‘superposition of states’ in which it can be considered to be simultaneously both ‘particle’ and ‘wave.’  When a second person is unaware of the first person’s observational measurement, this thought experiment proposes that the second person who is unaware of the first person’s measurement might be able to to confirm that the photon still exists in a quantum superposition (undecided) state.

Scientists including Caslav Brukner at University of Vienna in Austria and Massimiliano Proietti at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh took this experimental concept and created an experimental apparatus involving lasers, beam splitters, and six photons to be measured by various equipment representing the role of the two observers.  Preliminary results appear to provide real evidence that within quantum physics, our assumption of shared objective reality may be inaccurate.

How Nature Operates

Welcome to the new Quantum Age, featuring quantum logic!  With this new physics experiment supporting the idea that two people can observe the same event, see two different things happen, and both be correct, we are catching glimpses of the way Nature operates.  In Nature, we witness such things as:  instantaneous species mutation to the most advantageous possible adaptation, and plants routinely performing photosynthesis at more than 90% efficiency.  Lactose-intolerant organisms have been observed to adapt to a new lactose-based food source when it was the only one available, by making an evolutionary leap in one generation.  All photosynthesizing plants are performing miraculously efficient feats of storing energy from incoming photons, far beyond any human photovoltaic technologies.

When viewing the way so many natural systems seem able to ‘jump to the best reality,’ I can’t help feeling that we’re witnessing nothing less than some kind of deeper, hidden underlying awareness at work–far beyond what materialists might claim to be in charge.  Philosophers who share my sense that we are witnessing some kind of optimalism at work include Nicholas Rescher, author of a book on this topic called Axiogenesis.  I enjoy taking conscious part in this evolution by consistently asking, “How good can it get?”

The Second Quantum Revolution

I predict that we are now at the dawn of witnessing so-called ‘quantum phenomena’ moving out of the so-called ‘quantum realm’ ever increasingly in view in our everyday macroscopic lives.

When I gave a talk for Marin Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) this past month before having seen news of this experiment, I mentioned the famous EPR paper, as well as Wigner’s Friend, Quantum Zeno Effect and EPR steering–but where all of this gains traction and significance is in the context that we are now officially entering the “second quantum revolution” in which macro-scale quantum technology is being created now.  This new quantum technological race will feature engineering devices bringing ‘quantum scale’ phenomena into the macroscopic realm for applications in computing, communication, encryption and more. Macroscopic quantum systems have been developed recently in laboratories around the world, and with such fierce competition, we’ll soon be seeing astonishing breakthroughs, such as entangled diamonds.

Mandela Effect, Reality Shifts, and No Objective Reality

Physicists involved with this recent experiment, Massimiliano Proietti and his colleagues, state that, “The scientific method relies on facts, established through repeated measurements and agreed upon universally, independently of who observed them.”  Yet we are now glimpsing some of the first clear evidence that such assumptions can be proven false.  We are starting to see that the physicist Eugene Wigner’s idea that two scientists might have two different experiences while witnessing the same event appears to be proving to be true.

News of these experimental results is validating for the work I’ve been doing these past 20 years… and very exciting in terms of the implications for how humans can truly address all seemingly ‘impossible’ problems and situations–of every size, shape, and variety!  After 20 years of waiting for such an announcement, I’m pleased to see these experimental results that provide validation that we can expect to sometimes witness alternate histories from what others observe.  When we recognize that such subjective observation of ‘facts’ is constantly taking place, and that this can help provide a foundation by which we can better understand what is going on with the Mandela Effect and reality shifts, we can gain renewed confidence that humanity can address all seemingly ‘impossible’ problems and situations.

Welcome to the Quantum Age!

Physics Experiments Predict Observers Witness Different Histories

According to a new theoretical experiment, quantum physics indicates that observers witness different histories.  Taking this concept to its logical conclusion, this suggests that you and I and others may not necessarily recognize the same historical events–and the very suggestion of such a possibility is sending shock waves through scientific communities who take as a core assumption that there must logically be only one set of true historical facts.

You may have heard that quantum physics has gained a reputation for including such things as, “spooky action at a distance,” and that it somehow involves a cat inside of a box that may or may not be dead–but quantum physics is looking even weirder still, thanks to contributions by theoretical physicists Matthew Leifer and Robert Spekkens, whose work I’ve been following with great interest, and citing in my published papers, such as Primacy of Quantum Logic in the Natural World.

At the heart of these new observations is the idea that different observers can witness different realities, such that contradictory pictures of reality are observed.  This is described in a recent article written by Davide Castelvecchi, Reimagining of Schrodinger’s Cat Breaks Quantum Mechanics–and Stumps Physicists.

The headline here is perhaps a bit overly dramatic, as for all practical purposes, quantum mechanics can still be relied upon to deliver consistent results when it comes to it’s predictive abilities that we’ve relied upon for nuclear reactors, and that we are beginning to harness for up-and-coming new quantum computers.  What has broken has less to do with the actual physical world breaking as our biased perspective of there being “one and only one historical past.”

The Observer’s Role in Determining a Cat’s Fate

The original thought experiment designed by Erwin Schrodinger involved placing a cat in a presumedly ludicrous situation where it’s fate rests entirely in the hands of a quantum random event, such as a vial of poison gas inside the cat’s small room possibly being broken open when the randomizing trigger for the poison vial is activated at a time of decay of a radioactive isotope.  What Schrodinger originally found to be an outrageous notion was that, if we were to take quantum physics seriously, the cat inside the box with the poison vial could actually be considered to be BOTH alive AND dead–in a superposition of states–up until the moment when an Observer opened the box to check on the cat.  At the moment of such observation, the cat was considered to now actually be either alive or dead, and no longer in the seemingly preposterous state of alive-and-dead.

Introducing a Second Observer

In a small refinement of Erwin Schrodinger’s original thought experiment (where no physical cats were actually harmed), Eugene Wigner proposed that we contemplate what would happen when we add to our experimental design of the Observer and the Cat in the box a friend of the original observer.  We now have a Cat, an Observer, and a Friend–all waiting to see whether the cat in Schrodinger’s box is either alive or dead.  And as long as the Observer does not look, we can say the cat can be considered to be in a superposition of states–both alive-and-dead.  Once the Observer checks to see what the cat’s state actually is, we used to say that we now knew what the outcome is.  Yet, another way of viewing this more complex system of observation is that we don’t really have a final answer until the Observer’s Friend becomes aware of the result.

Complex Systems Can Experience Different Pasts

Daniela Frauchiger and Renato Renner of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich shows that “if the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics is correct, then different experimenters can reach opposite conclusions about what the physicist in the box has measured.”

What’s new with this thought experiment is the creation of a more sophisticated conceptualization of multiple observers, such that there can now be two Wigner Friends, “Alice” and “Bob,” who are each conducting their own separate observations of a physicist Observer who they keep in a box.

What’s interesting about this experimental design is that now when the two Friends open their boxes, they will sometimes make observations that are inconsistent with one another.

While we do not yet have quantum computers available that can prove or disprove the hypothesis that we can expect to see differences in observations in more complex systems of observers, we are moving steadily toward a time when such quantum computers will be able to provide us with a definitive answer on what now appears to be proof of a lack of a singular factual history.

Mandela Effects, Reality Shifts, and Quantum Jumps

There has been a great deal of discussion about this new take on the classic Schrodinger’s cat experiment in physics circles, with some of the world’s top physicists, such as Stephen Hawking, long ago having already suggested that we may expect to see, for example, physical evidence of there having been many original “big bangs” at the time of the creation of our universe.  Hawking co-authored a paper on this topic with Thomas Hertog in 2006, Populating the landscape:  A top-down approach.

I suggest this discussion about observers witnessing different possible past ‘truths’ and ‘facts’ should be very much part of conversation amongst those of us who are noticing such things as Mandela Effects, reality shifts, and quantum jumps.  When we recognize that there is scientific precedent for such phenomena, we can hopefully glean insights about the true mysterious workings of Nature, while appreciating our good fortune in sometimes getting to see evidence of such things ourselves.

Gödel’s Incompleteness, Mandela Effects, and Reality Residue

There is a remarkable connection between Gödel, reality shifts, and Mandela Effects, and it’s something I happened to run across recently while re-reading one of my all-time favorite books, Axiogenesis, by philosopher Nicholas Rescher. The passage I read was the very last section of the book on the last two pages, “Gödel’s Conspiracy Theory,” having to do with Gödel having come to believe that important documents and writings were being intentionally hidden and withheld.

Kurt Gödel was a good friend of Albert Einstein, who frequently took daily walks with him to discuss Gödel’s ideas about math and science. Gödel is famous for his discovery of a third category in logic beyond “right” and “wrong” that is more in keeping with quantum mechanics: “undecidable.” Gödel’s genius was to prove that undecidable sentences exist within every meaningful mathematical system, and this is the basis for his famous incompleteness theorem. Einstein was not Gödel’s only fan; the philosopher Karl Popper compared Gödel’s proof to an ‘earthquake,’ and John von Neumann commented, “Logic will never be the same again.”

Gödel was called the ‘greatest logician since Aristotle, and ‘a Mozart of mathematics,’ and each of his theorems has established a new branch of mathematical logic. Gödel chose to focus primarily on mathematical topics that were also philosophically relevant, starting with the foundation of mathematics. Gödel introduced the notion that extensive systems sometimes have logical inconsistencies when he arrived at a mathematics conference in September 1930 and said, “Given the consistency of classical mathematics, one can even give examples of sentences, which, although correct in content, are unprovable in the formal system of classical mathematics.” 

This statement may seem benign and innocuous, but it was anything but. While attendees of that conference made no official response at that time, Gödel was really saying that there exist mathematical statements that are correct, yet which are unprovable. And these sentences can even be specified in concrete terms. As paradoxical as it sounds, Gödel offered mathematical proof of unprovability, pointing out how there exists a kind of ‘quasi-paradoxical self-negation,’ as John von Neumann called it, referring to the way a formal-logic system emerges out of itself to make statements about itself.

Gödel’s Paranoia

Gödel suffered from paranoia, and experienced severe mental crisis which led him to being admitted to a sanatorium to help him overcome suicidal tendencies. Awareness of Gödel’s paranoia led his favorite professor, Philip Furtwangler, to wonder, “is his illness a consequence of the evidence of unprovability, or is his illness a necessary condition for dealing with such questions?”

Gödel had an obsessive fear of being poisoned, and only ate food prepared for him by his wife, Adele. When Adele was hospitalized for six months and unable to prepare his meals in 1977, Gödel wasted away and died.

Despite such paranoia and obsessions, when it came to the world of ideas, concepts, proofs, and foundational principles in math and science, Gödel’s thinking was exceptionally focused and clear. Which makes the mystery of the missing documentation particularly fascinating.

Mystery of Missing Documentation

Gödel’s own hero was Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz, whose works he studied intensely in his spare time. Gödel believed some of Leibniz’s important writings had not only failed to be published, but had been destroyed in manuscript. Gödel felt he had seen evidence indicating that Leibniz had developed anticipations of game theory, the paradoxes of set theory (“cloaked in the language of concepts, but exactly the same”), Helmholtz’s resonance theory of hearing, and the conservation of energy law–yet he was unable to find that evidence, despite numerous threads appearing to lead in those directions.

Gödel’s friend Oscar Morgenstern at Princeton University has called Gödel’s beliefs about such things “fantasies.” When Gödel attempted to show Morgenstern where he’d seen references to all these things in the various writings of Leibniz, in some cases neither the cited pages nor elsewhere was any writing on these topics by Leibniz to be found. In other cases, the writing stopped just before the cited passages, or the volumes containing those passages were never published. Gödel believed the reason for all these omissions to be that he was “systematically sabotaged by his editors.”

Alternative to Conspiracy: Real-Life Incompleteness

When I first read about Gödel’s concern with regard to missing Leibniz papers and writings, and especially when I heard that he’d noted there had been specific places where such writings ought to be, yet weren’t, I immediately recognized a familiar pattern that I often see when reality shifts, and the official history no longer matches what I know to be true. When I notice writings that have changed or gone missing, I realize there is a possibility that there may have been a reality shift in which things appear, disappear, transform or transport.

After 20 years of studying this phenomenon, I’ve noticed that one of the best ways to experience more reality shifts in one’s life is to pay more attention to such things. It seems completely logical to me that another way to experience more such things is to be aware of the intrinsicic incompleteness in the universe. It makes sense to me that knowing that some things can never be proved, and that there will always be indeterminancy at the root of even our “hardest” most fact-based math and science might just be enough to invite these experiences into one’s life.

Mandela Effect VS Manifestation

csl2016nov22I’ve been asked recently whether there is a difference between the Mandela effect and manifestation–and if there is a difference, what that might be.

The short answer is: Yes, there is a difference, and it has a lot to do with conscious intent. A trending monicker for reality shifts is “Mandela Effect,” in which many people may notice changes that seemingly have nothing to do with anything anyone was consciously wishing for, whereas in the case of “instant manifestation” and quantum jumps, we’re focused on a specific intention.

Mandela Effects and Reality Shifts

Mandela Effects and reality shifts often seem random and unexpected, surprising us with such things as: unexpected movie dialogue in a familiar scene, changes in writing in books we thought we knew by heart, and the occasional deceased celebrity being noticed unexpectedly alive again. In contrast, manifestation and quantum jumps typically occur after we focus on a specific desired outcome, such as locating a coveted parking spot, or suddenly feeling as if we’ve had enough rest after a short night’s sleep of tossing and turning.

QJ200x303Manifestation and Quantum Jumps

In the realm of manifestation, I’ve reported on hundreds of experiences involving such things as: improved health, broken-down or out-of-gas cars that start, and radically improved finances and relationships. In addition to these, many of the quantum jumps shared on the realityshifters website and in my book, “Quantum Jumps” include case studies of people teleporting through dangerous situations, such as safely past oncoming vehicles or falling steel beams they seemingly have no way to avoid. One useful example of how to enjoy benefits from ‘faking it until you make it’ and jumping to what feels like a parallel reality is believing you’ve slept well, even if you haven’t. Researchers at Colorado College conducted a study demonstrating the positive effects of such placebo sleep–which is one of dozens of similar laboratory-tested, simple things you can do to quickly become smarter, stronger, more confident, in better relationships, and feeling less pain that I share in my book, Quantum Jumps.

Overlap and  Commonalities

There appears to be a spectrum of continuity between the seemingly random surprises of Mandela Effects/reality shifts and consciously intended manifestation/quantum jumps, with a bit of overlap in the middle. I’ve experienced being part of a small group of people who start off experiencing seemingly random reality shifts / Mandela Effects, and end up witnessing what would more accurately be called quantum jumps / manifestation. These areas of overlap can be recognized when something is observed to “flip-flop” back and forth a few times before finally settling down at some point. During such flip-flops, we get a chance to consider our intentions.

As disconcerting as this experience can seem at the time, I am immensely grateful when such “flip-flops” occur, since they provide me with validation that I am, indeed, experiencing genuine shifts in reality, and not merely some kind of ‘memory glitch,’ as some classical scientists and reporters assert. Furthermore, I am grateful to have what I feel to be an opportunity to make a choice between which reality I’d truly most enjoy to experience, based on which one I’m more emotionally and energetically attached to (with whatever strong feelings I may have). I do realize this is a bit like being shown two possible desserts on a tray by a waiter in a restaurant–and the one I get is the one I am most entangled with. That is the moment all my spiritual “inner work” pays off, so hopefully I don’t end up with something I’m still “working through.”

And if I’m sufficiently relaxed, energized and detached, I’ve noticed that it seems that what gets settled on tends to be what I might ever-so-slightly prefer, so it seems to me almost as if I’m being asked by the Universe “Do you like this?” “Or how about this?” “Which one do you like better?” “Want to check it again–how about this?” “Or this?” 🙂

In the cases where no such flip-flopping occurs, the transition to a new reality can seem seamless and smooth, as if it was simply a natural progression and nothing out of the ordinary at all. I feel this is why so many people are blissfully unaware of the number of shifts they actually experience each day–simply because these shifts don’t often seem exceptional, but rather are just part of the way we each experience daily life.

Significance of Numbers of Experiencers

There are those who say there is another difference between Mandela Effects and manifestation other than conscious intent, stating that Mandela effects impact many people, whereas manifestation is experienced by one person at a time.While this might seem true at first glance, my research shows that’s an inaccurate oversimplification. What I’ve learned from 18 years of studying reality shifts and conducting two separate surveys in April 2000 and 2013 is that while reality shifts and Mandela Effects are often witnessed by many people, sometimes there are just a few people recognizing a particular alternate history, and sometime only one. Similarly, reports of manifestation and quantum jumps typically involve a single experiencer–though there are times when groups of people witness instantaneous shifts in reality that are greatly appreciated and had been hoped for and intended.

cynthiavajraA Time of Global Awakening

At this time when increasing reports of Mandela Effects and reality shifts being observed, we seem to be experiencing a time of global awakening in which we are gaining a glimpse of how collective consciousness operates. Within collective consciousness, our thoughts and feelings are capable of influencing world events, and influencing the past as well as the present and future. While at first these shifts may appear random, they can provide us with awareness of how we can collectively invite positive experiences of how good things can get for everyone.

Mandela Effects / reality shifts represent a call to action for all of us to acknowledge that rather than focusing primarily on ego-satisfaction and ego-goals, we’ve arrived at a point when humanity as a whole is beginning to climb the steps of stages of psychosocial development, something akin to what psychologist Erik Erikson proposed for individuals. Humanity is currently in a phase something like infancy, in which we are dealing with matters of Trust VS Distrust when it comes to knowing if we can share goals and thoughts and intentions with others. This is just the first step, and it’s essential that we come to a good state of awareness of how to do this in large groups of people we barely know (or perhaps don’t really know at all) before we can proceed to the next step of development to something like Autonomy VS Shame and Doubt (similar to the so-called “terrible twos” that toddlers go through when they often delight in saying “No!” to everything).

For the best experiences of reality shifts and quantum jumps, I recommend remembering to keep asking, “How good can it get?”

Living the Quantum Dream Radio Show

csl2016oct29

Do you know I host a radio show? I’ve surprised several people recently with news that I host the Living the Quantum Dream radio show, based out of Boston, Massachusetts, and featured on the Dreamvisions7 Radio Network. I’ve now conducted sixteen one-hour interviews with some of the world’s leading authors and visionaries presenting overviews of their unique areas of expertise in the expanding field of quantum consciousness. I created this radio show because there’s much more to reality than we learned in school!

We’re fortunate to be living at a time of changing paradigms, as we prepare to leave materialism and move toward quantum consciousness. While materialists have long claimed that at some future point in time, we will be able to discover how the mind will be understood as being a product of ‘mindless matter.’ In actuality, the discovery of quantum physics in the early 20th century eliminated materialism as a possible foundation for objective truth–though acceptance of this discovery has been slow to be globally recognized and understood.

Living the Quantum Dream explores the logic of quantum physics in a down-to-Earth way that is of practical benefit for your daily life. Learn how you can improve your life with such quantum phenomena as: entanglement, coherence, teleportation, and superposition of states with your host, Cynthia Sue Larson, best-selling author of “Quantum Jumps” and editor of the monthly www.RealityShifters ezine, in conversation with some of the world’s leading thinkers and visionaries. Discover how ancient wisdom shares much in common with new findings in the fields of philosophy, psychology, biology, medicine, and physics—and find out how you can change your life for the better today.   http://dreamvisions7radio.com/living-the-quantum-dream/cynthia-sue-larson-300x131

You can download and listen to Living the Quantum Dream shows as podcasts whenever is most convenient for you. These interviews make great listening for getting into the ‘quantum consciousness zone.’ Here’s the list of what’s available so far, so you can pick one or two you’d like to start with to begin expanding your Quantum Consciousness quotient:

cynthiasue-carlosmontemayorConscious Attention with Carlos Montemayor
Carlos Montemayor talks with Cynthia Sue Larson about the similarities, differences, and overlap between consciousness and attention–and why this matters. Montemayor describes how evolution helps us better understand why consciousness and attention truly are separate processes. Montemayor also delves into the fascinating world of memory, dreams, and perception, exploring implications of human rationality based on recent scientific studies. This discussion also touches on the meaning and experience of time, and how a better appreciation about cognitive processes might assist the legal process.

cynthia_barryharmonPressure Points and Korean Martial Arts History with Barry Harmon
Martial arts Master Barry Harmon talks with Cynthia Sue Larson about pressure points, Ki, healing, and self defense–including some of the most important aspects of Ki and pressure point principles. Harmon describes how he first became interested in pressure points and martial arts, and how personal self defense has much more to do with protecting oneself from disease and bad lifestyle. Harmon shares some surprising aspects of Korean history, including how monks were able to successfully protect Korean peasants and villagers from Mongolian invaders, and the artistic and scholarly side of ancient Hwarang warriors.

donaldhoffman-150x150Perception, Truth, and Reality with Donald Hoffman
What if the world we see isn’t actually the true reality? Donald Hoffman talks with Cynthia Sue Larson about his interface theory of perception, in which what we typically assume to be “out there” is not necessarily reality–but rather something akin to the desktop user interface on a computer. And just as we don’t need to execute machine language commands in order to send an email or delete a file, biological evolution has been proven to favor perceptual fitness over truthful completeness and accuracy of perception. As Hoffman writes, “… to experience is to construct, in each modality and without exception,” and new findings in quantum physics and quantum biology increasingly provide scientific evidence to show this is true.

cynthiasue-johnperkins-150x150Creating a Life Economy with John Perkins
What is an “Economic Hit Man” and what difference have they made in our lives? John Perkins talks with Cynthia Sue Larson about how he and others worked as Economic Hit Men to cheat countries out of trillions of dollars while spreading the structure and value of “death economy” greed-based values. Perkins provides insights as to how the deadly EHM cancer he and others helped create has recently spread more widely around the world and here in the United States to become the dominant system of business, government, and society today–and what we each can do to make a positive difference.

cynthiasue-new-evaherr-150x150Consciousness and Agape with Eva Herr
Eva Herr talks with Cynthia Sue Larson about her books, “Consciousness” and “Agape,” and the need for more discussion and agreement amongst consciousness researchers and scientists about what the terms “consciousness” and “mind” really mean. Herr shares the extraordinary feeling of love and oneness from epiphanies as well as how to make it through dark nights of the soul, and discusses the importance of methylation for optimal mind-body-spirit functioning.

cynthiasue-new_jeromebusemeyerQuantum Cognition with Jerome Busemeyer
Do humans think more like quantum computers than classical computers? Cynthia Sue Larson talks with Jerome R. Busemeyer about the new field of quantum cognition and his book, “Quantum Models of Cognition and Decision.” Busemeyer describes how he became interested in investigating the ways quantum logic and theory provides a fundamentally different–and in many cases more accurate–foundational model by which to better understand how humans think and make decisions. The order and context of events turns out to make a significant difference in the decisions we make, which helps explain why people sometimes answer very differently when we change the order of the questions that we ask.

cynthiasue_peter-russell-150x150Exploring the Mystery of Consciousness with Peter Russell
Peter Russell talks with Cynthia Sue Larson about how science has been so far unable to predict that any living thing should be conscious, working from assumptions of the physical world being the real world. Russell talks about the benefits of adopting a different set of foundational assumptions of consciousness being primary. Russell offers advice for scientists, psychologists and computer programmers at this time of global paradigm change to embrace the metaparadigm that consciousness is primary. Russell describes a form of meditation that requires no effort and offers wonderful rewards, and describes what he knows for sure that can positively transform the world.
