Describe two or more maps of the presenters in the course and show their differences and similarities in terms of the underlying, overarching field(s). Then, write about your own paradigm that has been shaped in this course and how it shapes your view of
We will cross reference “Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything” by Laszlo with “The Living Universe” by Duane Elgin. When writing about “my own paradigm” please use Daoist Philosophy and quotes form the Dao De Jing and the Chuang Tzu
The Akasha Paradigm
, Ph.D. begins our journey in our inquiry into the A-Field. Dr. Schlitz provides us with the gold standard in field-based research in the areas of consciousness, culture, and wholeness. She is the author of 200 research studies in access to the domain of fields and how these nonlocal accesses influence the health of individuals, culture, and Nature herself. Thus, in our seminar we start with an Akasha-field hypothesis and look immediately at the data supporting that hypothesis.
Science is not a conversation with Nature; science is a conversation within Nature.
Edgar Mitchell- 6th person to walk the moon, founded The term noetic sciences was first coined in 1973 when the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) was founded by Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who two years earlier became the sixth man to walk on the moon. Ironically, it was the trip back home that Mitchell recalls most, during which he felt a profound sense of universal connectedness—what he later described as a Samadhi experience. In Mitchell’s own words, “The presence of divinity became almost palpable, and I knew that life in the universe was not just an accident based on random processes . . . .The knowledge came to me directly.”
And they were to describe and pick which video is being played during their experience to see if they have a psychic says think they got imagery and salad they were supposed to from Juilliard was the drama group he had close to 70% hit the musicians had a 50% hit from Julliard the subjects that they got word that were just young university she was at the system studies only have about 30 minutes
William James – Noetic Experience,
Carl Jung – Numinous experience
Four Areas of Practice
1) It’s ATTENTION, not INTENTION…
2) HAVE A PRACTICE
3) Guidance-Others, and internal guidance, internal locus of control, external locus of control
4) How is this impacting the WE, self, individuated, and we, Akasha, Living Deeply is the book.
5) Repetition, we have to stay with the practice to create the groove in the vinyl record. Neuro-plasticity. (Sheldrake)

Why Consciousness Matters
con•scious•ness: In our work, personal consciousness is awareness—how an individual perceives and interprets his or her environment, including beliefs, intentions, attitudes, emotions, and all aspects of his or her subjective experience. Collective consciousness is how a group (an institution, a society, a species) perceives and translates the world around them.
con•scious•ness trans•for•ma•tion: A fundamental shift in perspective or worldview that results in an expanded understanding of self and the nature of reality.
world•view: The beliefs, attitudes, perceptions, and assumptions through which we filter our understanding of the world and our place in it.
The role of Memory – A Field is a memory field. Memory that relates to brain vs Field.
David Bohm- Holo Movement
Akashic could be a way of talking about the holographic Universe. Maybe the memory is not in the brain, but instead we’re the laptops, and the Akasha is the iCloud Akasha
Death Makes Life Possible
“Living Deeply” Even if I was certain that the Earth would end tomorrow, I would still plant a tree today.” Marilyn Schlitz
Duane Elgin is an internationally recognized speaker, author, and social visionary who looks beneath the surface turbulence of our times to explore the deeper trends that are transforming our world.

The 3 Questions
Where are we?
Who are we?
Where are we going?
Who are we is self-referencing question.
Take a step back …what is the nature of the Universe itself.
Taking into account CONTEXT
The universe is a single living creature… Plato
The Universe is A living system
That anything exists at all
Living things exist
The Living things know they exist!!!
Consciousness was there in the Living universe from the beginning.
Biophilia—Love of Earth
Cosmophilia-Love of Universe
A field of …..Geometry.
To create a Universe.
1st A place to put the Universe. Geometry
2nd Create the Universe from nothing.
4th Assign matter
5th Design Space. Physics does not tell us
6th Cosmic Information system. This is where Fields come in. Non-locality
7th Create Planetary Ecosystems. Sustain life
8th 3rd Miracle
9th Not just static. It needs to be recreated in every moment.

We are similar proportions to the construct of the Universe. Microcosmic / Macrocosmic
Hermetic Tradition: As above, so below. Holographic Universe
5% is ordinary matter
Dark Matter (27%) is contracting force—Brian Schmidt, Neutrino like particle
Dark Energy (68%) is expansive
This is Tai Chi
96% is unknown.
96% of ourselves is currently invisible!!

CJ never abandoned the idea of the Ether / Akashic Paradigm
Hidden Variables / David Bohm
An underlying Intelligence
The Third Eye should be called the First Eye, and the 6th sense should be called the 1st Sense. –Ervin Laszlo
Hello Everyone, Will, First I want to thank you for your excellent notes. They made this class as good as I expected even without the presence of the illustrious Dr. Laszlo.
I’d like to bring us back to the statement that a mature science integrates spirituality and that a mature religious system must integrate good science.
So, I’d like to know, from this perspective, if it would be a simplification to say that Dr. Laszlo’s description of the Akasha is another description of that which we might call, the Universal Consciousness”, that which some people choose to call God. Using the Eastern description is this another “finger pointing at the moon?”
If not, then, then what is the distinction of this paradigm? Is it another step of unification of Science and Spirituality?

David Bohm implicate order.
Using dreams is a direct connect to accessing the Akashic. Field. We must sleep and dream to connect with the Tao. Chap 25. Connection with Higgs boson.
Golden elixir. You must calm your mind in order to more clearly connect to the field.
Water. Emoto. Tao as water. The most flexible of the elements.
Spontaneous healing occurs because if the connection with the A-Field reconnecting with he Primordial Self. Ervin calls it coherence.

A-fieldThe dimension of the Universe that submins all things. It generates all things.
The womb of the world. The network of the world. The memory of the world.
