Emergence - a Holistic Theory of Physics
The exclusion of "non physical" phenomena from the field of investigations of physics has been severely limiting our potential for better understanding the universe. It is true that the reductionist approach generally employed by scientific enquiry has given us great progress in particular areas, but it is also true that our understanding of the broader realities of the physical universe is still severely lacking.
I have long been advocating, on this website, which deals with matters of physics and energy technologies, that we must get over this limiting view of the world if physics is to progress in a significant way.
Now it appears that Rinaldo Lampis has given the matter considerable thought and is developing a model he calls the Theory of Reality, a new paradigm which overcomes the division between physics and metaphysics, bringing a complete understanding of the reality of our world within reach. Lampis quotes Robert Laughlin's Principle of Emergence as a basis for his model: Solids and liquids sometimes play host to strange entities that bear little resemblance to the atoms making up the substance...What we call reality is a spontaneous phenomenon, emerging like a wave out of some forever unknowable cosmic medium...The underlying nature of reality is hidden from us. Everything is emergent...
He then goes on to say: The Hypothesis suggests that higher formative principles dwell in matter; that the sympathetic resonances existing inside matter’s systems cause the emergence – in liquids and solids – of properties which are strikingly different than those that characterize their isolated elements... He also sees support for the new hypothesis in Rupert Sheldrake's concept of morphogenetic fields.
I highly recommend you read the thoughtful paper of Lampis, which follows here:
The Theory of Reality
Or why, if we understand Reality, the Theory of Everything is an impossibility.
Or how to establish basic principles that clarify physical, mental and paraphysical phenomena,
and to dispose of concepts such as non-locality, placebo and chance.

Science no longer identifies reality with the physical universe, for mind and consciousness belong to the unseen world. - Sir Arthur Eddington
Abstract. What is reality to a rational mind? The answer is that whatever is observable by the senses and/or measurable in some way belongs to the domain of reality. This definition is becoming rather unsatisfactory for at least two reasons. First, in science the boundaries of reality keep on changing as we continue our explorations into the physics of Nature; secondly, it is becoming evident in psychology that each mind has a unique relationship with its surroundings, allowing for an ever changing perception of personal reality.
The aim of this paper is to establish basic principles that:
1) Define a comprehensive Reality – also called Complete Reality – independent of scientific discoveries and individual perceptions, which is composed of “visible” as well as of “invisible” parts;
2) Show that, in Physics, the idea of non-locality is no longer necessary; and that the concept of the independent observer is an impossibility;
3) Point out, in Medicine, a different way of perceiving and treating physical and mental problems, and indicate the unreliability of the placebo concept;
4) Introduce paranormal phenomena into the mainstream of Physics.
The introduction of basic principles (energy / vibration / resonance / systems) in the theory will allow a description of Reality as a simple continuum of elements. Thus defined, Complete Reality will contain all elements, with no element existing outside of it.
The advantage of the Reality approach is that both “physical” and “non-physical” elements can be similarly described, becoming undistinguishable as far as the treatment goes. That is, a physical process will be “seen” by this approach in the same manner as mental or paranormal (physically unexplainable) processes; the only difference being of an energetic/vibrational nature. So defined, the Theory will be able to explain the formation, interaction and evolution of all the elements belonging to Complete Reality. It will also be seen that the Principle of Emergence can be used both to support the Theory and be itself the Theory. Indeed, Reality could be considered as the total, final Emergence.
Key words: energy, vibration, systems’ resonance, paranormal phenomena, emergence, reductionism, non-locality, placebo, invisible world.
Creating a Pragmatic Marriage
In order to get a better idea of what issues this paper addresses, we should start first with some definitions.
By physical world we mean all those elements of the physical world, as we commonly know it. They can be natural or man-made objects; visible (as a tree or a car) as well as invisible ones (as an elementary particle or a radio wave).
By invisible or subtle world we mean every element beyond the ordinary physical world as defined above. That includes thoughts and emotions of whatever kind, plus the full range of paranormal and supernatural phenomena.
By Total or Complete Reality we mean the sum total of the elements of the physical and invisible worlds. To fully grasp the completeness of Total Reality it should be clearly understood that, by definition, no element that the mind can conceive could exist outside Reality.
Trying to describe the workings of Complete Reality seems at first an impossible task, as we aim to join together all measurable, concrete elements belonging to our physical world, to qualities and manifestations of the subtle/invisible world, which are often more elusive than a fistful of water.
But the difficulty resides only in the perspective (the proximity) with which we analyse reality. In order to solve the problem, an educated and alert mind should accept:
a) The fundamental natural laws that guide everyday life, like gravity and electromagnetism, and the physical, chemical and biological laws whose discovery and employ have generated in Man some understanding of the workings of physical reality;
b) That the material, physical nature is only the “terminal station” of energy; the concrete precipitation of subtler energies. That, beyond the material world, lie ever-subtler aspects of nature, which surround, envelope and interact with the physical world;
c) That physical nature is thus only the “tip of the iceberg” of this manifestation, which expresses itself in an energy continuum.
The reductionist approach of the Greeks, the theory that reduces complex data or phenomena to simple terms, has produced some marvellous scientific results. Indeed it has served us well. Certainly, without the simplifications made, we wouldn’t have been able to describe in a useful way the complex reality in which we live. The technological conquests made possible by the reductionist method have considerably improved our quality of life and deepened our understanding of physical Nature. But, as we proceeded with its exploration, we have come to realize that the method provides only coarse approximations of the real, complete nature of the elements observed. For instance, it is not suited to describe holography, entanglement or the behavior of the mind, and it doesn’t recognize or predict emergent physical phenomena – manifestations in matter regulated by higher organizing principles.
In view of the ever-widening gap between theory and observed reality, it appears obvious that the reductionist ideal has reached its limits as a guiding principle, as Nobel laureate Robert Laughlin suggests (note 1). Many researchers and scientists must understand this truth, or risk to be left behind by history. They must declassify reductionism from its present status of scientific dogma to the status of method, the way it was originally meant to be.
To describe Reality as faithfully as possible, what it’s needed instead is an approach that includes as many variables as possible (note 2). This is the approach here followed.
The Foundations of the Theory
The fundamental supposition on which the Theory lays, is that Reality needs to manifest itself (emerge) out of an energy continuum, of infinite dimension, into which it is fully immersed. We can begin by stating that:
1) All elements of the Universe are composed of vibrating energy;
2) This energy spreads out and interacts with itself in an infinite continuum.
By element we intend a distinct part of the whole that can be identified by the mind, like an object or a concept.
By energy we intend a force, a tension that arises where energy manifests itself. Energy is never at rest (it perennially moves and vibrates), manifesting an infinite variety of expressions and intensities. Because of the richness of its activity, it displays a sort of “pressure” on everything, meaning that it has the tendency to fill with itself the smallest void.
By continuum we intend an energetic, coherent whole; a sequence/progression of values or of energetic elements that vary continuously by small, stepwise differences. The stepwise behavior is noted, for instance, in the microscopic world by way of the quantum laws. The growth of a flower or a plant, the chromatic scale, or the differentiation of animals (even between human beings and apes) are other examples of stepwise behavior.
Although the stepwise behavior must exist, the steps must be sufficiently small to maintain the continuum. Marked divisions that arise from the apparent binary nature of reality, such as visible/invisible, high/low, one/zero are simply energy polarities embedded in the continuum. For example, the concepts of visible and invisible exist in separate parts of the same continuum; they simply describe two aspects of the same Reality.
continuum continuum continuum continuum
The fundamental supposition of the existence of an energetic, stepwise continuum, although not excessively demanding to our rational mind, is pregnant with strange (to say the least) implications, which will be dealt with in a short while. For the moment, taking the continuum as having a “physical” basis, we can state that the invisible aspect of Nature “must” exist and that the energy transition from visible to invisible must be gradual, because of the stepwise behavior of the continuum. Historically, we could make a reasonable analogy of the visible/invisible continuum with the acceptance, within mathematics, of both arithmetic (composed of only positive numbers) and algebra (holding both positive and negative numbers).
The existence of the invisible aspect of reality shows also in human affairs and thought; we notice it in the so-called dematerialization of the economy, in the idea of “navigating” into cyberspace, or in the attempt at formulating multidimensional theories. It seems evident that, the more we will continue to explore aspects of reality, the more we will understand that the final, physical results are always generated by some immaterial forms. The objects observed could be human works, “materialized” under the impulse of thoughts, or natural structures, that acquired their form and function by reason of immaterial energetic impulses. With this perception, the creation of a flower or of a human being comes thus from similar laws and sequences.
We can generalize by saying that, within the continuum, an immaterial, energetic matrix underlies all formative procedures. The incorporation of this reality into Man’s mental processes will allow for a qualitatively superior observation of the workings of Nature.
The Components of the Theory
From the fundamental supposition that an energy continuum is an infinite envelope, we can now add three more basic ideas to fully define Complete Reality:
3) Energy is structured into systems;
4) Systems of similar energy or vibration are in resonant or semi-resonant communication among themselves. The interaction enables them to assemble into new, more evolved structures;
5) There are no isolated systems.
By system we intend a vibrating energy aggregate, sufficiently complex to differentiate itself from its surroundings. The definition of system includes, for instance, subatomic particles, molecules, cells, animal organs and forms, people, and natural and artificial physical structures, both visible and invisible, such as grains of sand, states of matter, man-made objects, suns, thoughts, memories and abstract concepts.
Any two or more systems having a similar vibratory construction possess the ability to communicate (resonate) with each other. Therefore, not only musical instruments and radio apparatuses can communicate among themselves, but also similar physical/mental/emotional systems existing between people or in crowds. Furthermore, similar memories and behaviors in animals or Man can share their own structures to build more evolved systems, instincts, thoughts, and collective memories.
Regarding point (5), since any structure (system) is an assembly of simpler systems, there is always some resonance between the simpler systems that make up the larger structures. We can thus state that all systems are in communication with each other, whether we are dealing with telepathy, man/machine interfaces, a vacuum chamber surrendering to outside pressure, or an iron bar that quietly rusts away (note 3).
We notice an example of resonance between different systems in the “theory of signatures”, in which the appearance or quality of natural objects indicate its utility in medicine. For instance, there is a similarity between a walnut and the human brain; therefore, the theory states, there are principles in the nut that are beneficial to the brain.
The Interpretation of Reality
By employing five simple concepts (energy / continuum / vibration / resonance / systems) the Theory of Reality (or Unifying Theory) is able to describe whatever physical or conceptual element, visible or hidden, existing in Man’s Universe. For instance, regarding the physical aspect, an internal combustion engine is materially built from metals, plastics etc., which at an atomic level are nothing but energy expressions; its individual parts are a composite of systems and subsystems called pistons, connecting rods, oil, combustion air etc.; these systems communicate among themselves partially or totally in harmony (resonance) producing useful work, or in dis-harmony (still in resonance), breaking up. Other analogous descriptions could relate to the functioning of the human body, a chemical process, the growth of a plant or the workings of the solar system.
But Complete Reality does not deal only with the material manifestation; it also postulates the existence of a boundless, subtler world. In this vast expanse of seething energy, variously structured in countless levels, also reside energies such as instincts, emotions, thought-forms and archetypes.
Thought-forms are the most important systems as far as mankind is concerned. Their continuous interactions cause a steady modification of the component systems, resulting in the creation of new thoughts that often outlive the older ones. By this evolution an individual and mankind progress.
The invisible world’s stepwise existence in the continuum, by force, gives rise to some unexpected qualities and elements. The following are but a few of them.
Mental Systems. Phenomena like telepathy, clairaudience and clairvoyance are just different aspects of resonant mechanisms between people (telepathy and clairaudience) or between a person and a physical structure (clairvoyance). The claim of someone of being able to “see into the future” is simply an attempt by the person’s mind to resonate with the dynamic evolution of existing systems (note 4).
Hierarchies of Beings. Given that the quality of energy in the continuum must vary by small, stepwise amounts (note 5), the boundary visible/invisible and the vast expanse of the invisible world must be “peopled” by an elevated number and variety of “beings”. They vary from elementary manifestations, dimly conscious, to semi-sentient to sentient to super-sentient kind of entities (note 6,7).
Using the western, Christian terminology, we can name some of them as positive and negative spirits, nature spirits, souls, spirit guides, angels and Archangels. There exist also great hierarchies of guiding intelligences endlessly extending on the ladder of life.
On the borderline of the visible we have instead semi-material, fringe “animals” like the Yeti, the Sasquatch and the Loch Ness “monster”. Their natural territory spans both the visible and the invisible world. A small, instinctual change of their vibratory system makes them cross the boundary. Their permanence in our visible world is facilitated when the energy systems in which they move are similar to their own.
Resonance with other Beings.
Since in Complete Reality there are no isolated systems, often there are interactions (resonances) between entities of the invisible world and human thought-forms. Many have heard of communications of higher beings and saints with spiritually-minded people; there is also a much more frequent but less known interaction, if not intrusion, that takes place between the inhabitants of the subtle world and the unaware average person. The extent of the interference depends on the mental make-up of the human, but generally it pervades many human activities and structures. From Man’s point of view, these dwellers can also be seen as thought-forms of different complexities; some sort of mental interference that increases the amount of difficulty experienced in a person’s life. In extreme cases these interactions might be responsible for a physical disease (some of which are now vaguely classified by doctors as having “miasmic” or “psychoneuronal” causes); while in other cases they are responsible for mental illnesses (note 8). Recent experiments have shown that appropriate procedures can remove these interferences from the person’s system.
Non-Locality and the Disappearance of Space.
Curiously, by using resonance as the fundamental manner of communication between invisible systems, the concept of distance disappears. The only requisite being the systems’ vibratory similarity, not how far apart they are located. Entanglement and telepathy are two examples of the mechanism. The concept of non-locality becomes therefore redundant, as is the need to use space to describe a system. Structures so expressed have the quality of being present in any point of the Universe, as far as another system of similar vibrational attributes is concerned. This aspect of Nature has been mentioned already in old Veda scriptures.
Placebo Effect and the Attitude of the Experimenter.
Another consequence of resonance is the “interference” that an experimenter always exerts on any system towards which he/she directs his/her attention. The concept is known already in Quantum Theory. In our context, it relates to the tainting of results of any research or observation with an “imprinting” related to the experimenter’s attitudes. This aspect has been noticed in studying the “memory” of water, and in the fluctuating performance of psychics while in the presence of favourable or hostile observers (note 9).
For the same reason, the reliability of the idea of placebo is no longer scientifically tenable, since the very act of its application causes a transmission of information (a resonance) among the people involved and the quality of the “pills” used. This mechanism has also been observed experimentally (note 10).
Obviously, Complete Reality does not allow for chance to exist. In Totality there are only interactions of systems, with the strongest prevailing over the weaker ones. Even a lottery win or a car accident are caused by interacting forces, whose final resultant is what actually happens. For instance, supposing that the overall slant of mankind is towards goodness, during the Cold War it wouldn’t have been possible that a “mad sergeant” could have pushed the launch buttons of some nuclear ICBMs, starting “by chance” a nuclear holocaust. It is just that there was at any time neither enough energy nor systems’ resonance to have caused that reality. Meanwhile, the use of little energy of elevated resonance used in the September 11 terrorist attacks is still reverberating around the world.
Continuous Creation, the Law of Conservation of Matter and the Zero Point.
We have already seen that the pressure that energy exerts all around “space” (that is, itself), does not allow for energy gaps (note 11). This force accounts for the blossoming of flowers as for the evolution of thoughts, or for the expansion of the Universe. The pressure of manifestation (again, emergence) is such that it can be stated that continuous creation flows from each point of Reality. In the organic world, this energy is used directly (see also note 3), or it is transformed into matter, if the working element so needs it. Many experiments have shown this mechanism at work in the plant and animal kingdoms (note 12).
We can therefore state that the law of conservation of matter (and of energy) does not apply to the organic kingdom. This energy can be also directly extracted for useful purposes from the visible/invisible interface (because of its tapping location, it is called zero-point energy) (note 13).
Emergence and Morphogenic Fields.
The Theory of Reality has been formulated by using general observations and few, simple concepts. What other observed facts could support the Theory? At present, the closest sustainer is the Principle of Emergence formulated by Robert Laughlin: Solids and liquids sometimes play host to strange entities that bear little resemblance to the atoms making up the substance...What we call reality is a spontaneous phenomenon, emerging like a wave out of some forever unknowable cosmic medium...The underlying nature of reality is hidden from us. Everything is emergent...(note 14). The Hypothesis suggests that higher formative principles dwell in matter; that the sympathetic resonance existing inside matter’s systems cause the emergence – in liquids and solids – of properties which are strikingly different than those that characterize their isolated elements. Interestingly, these higher principles are not derivable by the reductionist method.
Naturally, matter is the coarsest, slowest-vibrational manifestation of energy. The simple organizing principles now isolated by Laughlin indicate a modus operandi of energy; they are certainly the forerunners of more complex energy organizations to be discovered (such as the self-organizing properties that arise from single-cell reproduction, and the formative principles that transform energy into matter and form). Indeed, it can be said that not only the Principle helps to explain the Theory, but that Reality itself is the Total, final emergence.
Looking at the subtle world, another support to the Theory comes from Rupert Sheldrake’s concept of morphogenic fields. It postulates the existence of systems, which function as matrices in which are nested instincts, group behavior, memories and archetypes.
Conclusions. Someone has described the workings of the zero-point as a mutant strain of non-linear physics (note 15). From the point of view of classical physics, the Theory of Reality could be then described as a total aberration! But reason must always prevail; we cannot forget the existence in nature of simple evolutionary laws that apply to all organisms, including science, and the lessons that the past has given us. When people were trying to understand the Solar System with algebra and geometry, they could only describe the planet’s orbits. To understand what was actually happening took calculus.
The Theory is only proposing a more detached view of the place in which our Consciousness is spacing; it is meant to be a more holistic kind of Physics. On the other hand, we must accept the fact that all theories, including the present one, are only approximations of the Truth. Only if Man had an infinite mind he/she would be able to grasp Total Reality. By just verbalizing something, we have already approximated it. Math comes closer, but it is still an approximation, because Nature has too many domains from which it emanates. The fact that it is open-ended at its outer edge doesn’t allow us to take seriously any Theory of Everything.
It remains to be seen which is the better approximation. What seems to be experimentally sound is that the Universe is more correctly seen in terms of interacting wholes; the fact that Emergence appears only in systems indicates that the Principle is working in a holistic regimen.
The transition from the science of the past, so intimately linked to reductionism, to a systemic vision of Nature might be slow but it is unstoppable. By using a simple, holistic approach, the Theory of Reality is able to create new, unsuspecting links among different aspects of Nature, and to confirm old, controversial ones. It allows us to part with well-established, old-physics concepts such as locality, chance and placebo and to confirm the sound, physical base of controversial aspects of science, like homeopathy and the memory of water. Because of its open-ended structure, it ties the researcher indissolubly to the elements observed, relating Consciousness to interference, and disposes of the idea of impartial observation.
By its very nature, it also requires the presence in its folds of all sorts of phenomena, especially those – “paranormal” ones – arbitrarily excluded by science for lack of a theory that would approve of their existence. All this in spite of the overwhelming physical evidence to the contrary (note 16). Now these phenomena can be brought into the mainstream of science. Recent subtle-world research methods are already allowing for an unprecedented penetration into the workings of the invisible world. It is hoped that its exploration will be done with the greatest care and according to the highest ethical principles.
The new studies that this new approach allows, will hopefully help to shed more light also on the highest organizing principles called Life and Consciousness, and to uncover their role in the establishment of Complete Reality. As time goes by, the old maxim ENERGY FOLLOWS THOUGHT will be ever more meaningful to Man.
Note: It is possible, within limits, to give some mathematical structure to the Theory here outlined.

2. Even a Theory of Everything cannot be seriously formulated if it doesn’t take into account the energies of the invisible world and their interactions among themselves and with the physical world.
3. It is possible to artificially isolate a system from other systems, but only for short periods of time. Consciousness can sometimes accomplish this by isolating the mind from its surroundings, such as during concentration. In Physics, the phenomenon of entanglement (resonance) of simple particles is possible because the experimenter is careful to isolate the particle system from the influence of all other systems. On the opposite side, we have extreme cases in which Consciousness is able to cause resonance with systems, external to the physical body, whose interaction is not normally available to the average person. We have then the ability to absorb energies that sustain the physical body without any food intake (Therese Neumann, the Breatharians), without breathing (Fakirs), or by manifesting stigmata thought-forms (Saint Francis, Padre Pio).
4. Attempts by science to study the man/machine interface have already shown an incontrovertible influence of man’s thoughts over some simple machine – see, for instance, the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research, Princeton University, USA; and the IGPP ( Institut für Grenzgebiete der Psychologie und Psychohygiene) in Freiburg, Germany. Now that a link between the two elements has been proven, it should be scientifically more rewarding to study the wider mind/matter interface as glaringly shown, for instance, by the Filipino psychic healers. See Alfred Stelter, Psi-Healing, Bantam Books; and George W. Meek, Healers, Theosophical Publishing House.
5. If the amounts of variation were not small, the energy “pressure” would fill the empty gaps, and the stepwise behavior of nature would force manifestation to be of a “small, stepwise nature”. We also know, from Physics, that Nature abhors continuous manifestations (i.e., a light ray or the flow of a river possess a stepwise nature).
6. We must remember that our perception of sentient or semi-sentient entities is only given by the different complexity of the mental structures encountered. The necessity for the existence of a variety of beings follows from the “small, stepwise nature” already explained: because of the existence of Man, there must exist a long evolutionary scale of other beings at either side of the scale.
7. It must be understood that the invisible world itself is not a “location”, but an infinite assembly of states of energy, which must express themselves in “small, stepwise changes”. Its “dwellers” reside in it according to the level of their own energy systems.
8. In “Black Magic” some misguided individuals purposefully “call” on negative entities to interfere physically with a person. The immediate results obtained depend on the skills of the perpetrators and on the mental structure of the targeted person. But, once a resonance with those kinds of sentient energies is established, the final result is invariably the mental “cannibalizing” of the perpetrators, done by the negative entities contacted.

Here are some further explanations given by Rinaldo Lampis in e-mails to people who inquired about his method:
Dear Dr. Norman,
Thank you for your frankness, and also for your mild interest.
I’ll try not to overwhelm you with information, although the aspect of reality I am trying to convey is so novel that some explanation should be given.
Perhaps the best and shortest approach would be the statement that reality is also composed of the physical aspect more familiar to us. In addition to it, many other facets contribute to the whole picture, giving tridimensionality to an image that right now is rather “flat”.
Its different manifestations arise and become visible if and when stimulated in the right way. The new concept of Emergence is so far the most powerful explanation to logically and mathematically explain the situation. One of these manifestations (and the most important one as far as the impact on humans is concerned) is the “mental” aspect existing in nature. By this I mean that there is in it an almost infinite scale of literally “thinking”, independent manifestations that pervade the whole of it.
How do I know about it? As I already mentioned, this is not a supposition, but a statement arising from our countless, practical experiences. In our work (see www.spiritaction.net) we deal all the time with “entities” displaying different levels of self-awareness that, among other forms of parasitism relating to humans, seem to like to dwell inside electronic machinery, especially those that require a physical interaction with a human being (that is, very few dwell in a TV set, while many more exist in a computer or an automobile or in a dentist’s equipment). Again, please remember that I am trying to describe here real-life, logical, self-aware entities with which you can deal and discuss.
Our job function is to reclaim lands, houses and offices, with all its associated implements, from these intrusions (a simple analogy to the physical world would be the tendency of objects to gather dust or electrostatic charge); therefore, after having dealt with them in a summary way, we “eliminate” them.
But it must be said that their interference with the machinery can be classified only as marginally negative; superficially, an external observer could explain a machine malfunction with a philosophical statement such as: “Every moving part and any electronic device sooner or later is going to break down.”
My proposal is: “If these whatever “entities” seem to “naturally” migrate and dwell in machinery, why not harness them to perform some useful function of which they could be even “proud”?”
I realize that this seems a far-fetched idea but, in my mind, it is much more feasible than, for instance, the attempt to build a biological computer (which will have to contend, anyway, with the mechanism explained above).
If you have arrived this far, I apologize for the length of the explanation; I have tried to be as concise as I could, and this is my best result.
I include two attachments, one of which (a Theory of Reality) is an attempt to explain what we are dealing with. That is only a theory, while my explanations above are just about facts.
Well, I found your thoughts also very interesting.
As an engineer I have a rational mind and I have been interested for some time to the crop circles myself. I totally agree that each one of us is immersed into his/her own reality and that the consensus reality is a sort of average of all these singular ones. You also noticed that this average reality is in a process of constant change (in the past, most of us thought that we lived on a flat earth, for instance). This is because nature itself, of which we are an integral part, is constantly in a "becoming" mode. Naturally, even the minutest details of each individual reality belong to the total reality (or to the human mind, as you prefer to call it).
I am lucky enough to be able to work with very advanced "instruments" that allow me to probe in a direct way that vast world. We have access to many good guides and archetypes on the other side, which try to satisfy my curiosities, compatibly with my level of understanding and the energy levels that the "containers", that is the mediums, can handle. Once I called the "Angel of the star Sirius", which came, but I was thoroughly scolded for having put the life of the medium in danger. Only the modulation of its energy, on the other side, by our most powerful guide (you may call "it" the Archangel Michael) prevented the medium from being burned to a crisp. Since then I am most careful and I ask counsel before making any contact.
In these short years, we have felt like Columbus in an uncharted world, and I am still amazed at the ease with which we can make whatever connection. Yet, I am more amazed at the indifference with which any researcher, at any level, treats this information. Perhaps because he/she doesn't grasp the importance of this new method, thinking of it as another "mediumistic" approach. Many years ago I read a science fiction short story, in which the protagonist was given, by some higher, galactic powers, a razor blade that was going to remain sharp forever. After half a dozen shaves the man threw it away, since all blades were supposed to last that long. Needless to say, neither he nor humanity weren't given other gifts.
Well, that is only a story, while I want to live this reality with the conscious awareness that we have been given some kind of great gift by "someone". I don't want to forget that.
We have total freedom of exploration of this immensely vast world but, obviously, the “energy steering” is done by our guides who, for instance, don’t want us to get involved in stock market forecast or treasure hunting. And, without their cooperation, we are totally ineffectual.
What our specialty seems to be, is that of contrasting whatever “evil” interference (human, like witchcraft, or from spirits, or from aliens) that may hit an individual. I can assure you that there is plenty of this around, filling the whole world, some of which even perversely fascinating (have you ever heard of inhabitants of other worlds who come into our own for the purpose of becoming “lover boys” or “lover girls” to some humans?).
We have also, at times, encountered some aliens, who are attracted to our planet mostly for studying us, as if we were some cattle. The ones we met are rather arrogant and have no concept of spirituality. They are also energetically very strong, meaning that, while we “disintegrate” oftentimes not only the “lover boys” but also their kingdoms, to prevent other adventurers from coming into our vibration, with aliens we disintegrate only the entities directly involved, but not their “launching bases” (or whatever they are) in space, because we don’t want to have in our hands any major battle. From our experience, I suppose that even outside our world there is a consciousness differentiation and the polarity good/evil. In this respect, it seems that we are the “foot policemen” in the seedy district. Regarding your crop circles, at the beginning I was very much interested as to their origin and meaning, but I have been told that they are created by some not-too-honorable entities to attract our attention and create some channels from which they can penetrate (and interfere, I suppose) into our world. Rightly or wrongly, because of the suggestion my interest has decreased quite a bit. What has remained is the physics of it, which I find totally fascinating.
I close reminding you (and myself) that our planet is a very unusual combination of energies and consciousnesses, which unavoidably attract all sorts of beings, even from far away in “space”. A close analogy would be with the American far west of not too long ago.
I would welcome any comment you care to make,

Dear Mr. Fox,
To answer your question, the medium that we use is a special kind of "human" indeed. I doubt very much that people could be trained to do that (certainly no western, male, rational people). My observation is that the suitable person must be fairly spiritual and psychologically simple. Those with which we work are all from the Philippines, are females, and all displayed unusual abilities since childhood.
My experience also warns me that we shouldn't try to interpret literally what comes from other "dimensions"; that is, we shouldn’t apply our mental schemes (thought-forms) to interpret what we observe. In this field, the great unknown is the extent to which the sentient energies that arrive "adapt" to our single and/or group minds.
For instance, suppose that, during a channeling done by a medium, some “great being” arrives. That could be Jesus or a Sage, or a ruler of whatever far-out world. How are we to know that those entities are indeed what they claim to be? Perhaps their wise words will be able to convince us? That shouldn’t be sufficient. During our research we often deal with unusual personages, sometimes even of a certain notoriety; but in some occasions they have turned out to be “impostors”. It’s easy for us to uncover them, because our mediums have total capacity to “see” the real nature of what is coming (we always employ two mediums: one is the “container” and the other one the “controller”). I can easily see how, without any such controls and without the employ of people with fully-open third eye, the medium can be easily fooled; the channeling could become totally unreliable.
What worsens the situation is the mistaken belief, even among serious researchers, that “since my motives are noble, only reliable, spiritual beings will contact me!” That is wishful thinking. The invisible world is peopled by myriads of typologies, compared to which planet earth appears barely populated. Even among the so-called “white spirits”, there are some so eager to improve themselves or to prove their worth to us, that at times they don’t shy away from false representations. Not long ago a sensitive Russian lady, with a following of hundreds of people back home, came to see us because she wanted to establish a better contact with the Virgin Mary, with whom she claimed to be in contact. You can imagine her surprise when she was immediately told that “it” was an ordinary white spirit, well-meaning to the point of being dressed up like the Mother of Jesus!
Although my personal opinion is that all sentient and semi-sentient beings have independent existences, we cannot ignore the fact that many (all?) are intimately intertwined with our mental processes. To keep perspective, we must accept that the mental plane is where the real action is, where the fluid creative forces are shaped before crystallizing into the physical world (if you believe in this mechanism, it’s easy to see how widespread is the interference of “that world” with ours, as far as mental and physical diseases are concerned).
I like to make some comments on your claim regarding the “spaceship” that, according to some reliable channeling, is hovering someplace near earth, ready to land. Even an “alien” contacting us will use the same mental mechanism already mentioned; these are the archetypal thought-forms that also “bring to life” and individualize Mickey Mouse, Mister America or the characters of the “Lord of the Ring”.
I urge you not to forget that the quality of the connection depends on the channel itself. The thought-forms used and produced depend mainly on the mind of the medium. If in that mind there is a “spaceship”, or an emotional upset (what does NESARA have to do with anything?), that would be the color of that communication.
Simply, I find not credible that a spaceship should hide someplace, with Jeshua etc. on board waiting to land, while a simpler psychic mechanism (see the powers of Sai Baba, for instance) would render everything else old-fashioned.
After all, don’t we already know that space and time have an intrinsic granular, holographic quality in them, that makes every point in the universe equivalent to any other one? Doesn’t the zero-point concept say the same thing? Why travel then, if we are already there? Again in my experience, even the lowliest spirit has always stated that its manner of locomotion is the use of the mind; simply it thinks, and it’s there!
I hope to have answered all your queries,
Cheers... R. Lampis
Thank you very much for your kind words. I browsed your site and I must commend you for the excellent work done by your group. A website of that nature is indeed very useful for those people who had some direct experience of the paranormal, and want to “come out of the closet” and be heard.
I think that Internet is very valuable for the recognition of the subtle world, since it allows the cross reference of data and the exchange of ideas and experiences typical of any emerging science.
Personally, I think that we shouldn’t bother too much about the opinion of official science regarding these matters. For blind people – and there are plenty of scientifically and spiritually blind people – no amount of light (read facts) will be sufficient to make them see. As Max Planck used to say, we just have to wait for them to die off and for a new generation of more pragmatic minds to take their place. In the meantime, we drive along the way as we are doing. Soon they’ll become a minority, keeping company with the flat earth society and with the Ptolemaic system.
I totally agree with you regarding the spiritual aspect of Nature. To myself, in the Universe there is only the Spirit as “the” driving force. Everything else is just a consequence of that presence. The fact is, Spirit expresses itself in so many aspects to give, to many distracted minds, the impression of living in a concrete place. As you noticed I didn’t mention this force, because I wanted to show that we can express whatever idea we want, at whatever “reasoning” level, by using simple, conceptual tools that any researcher or scientist could understand. Actually, the concept of omni-pervasive energy is really a kind of mental “Trojan horse” because, when fully understood, is undistinguishable from a spiritual concept. The advantage being that the mind will arrive at its real meaning at its own speed, without feeling that “somebody” has forced it into doing it.
As for the specifics of our method, I can say that we are lucky enough to be able to work with a new class of mediums (I dare almost say with “mutants”) who are able, almost instantaneously, of becoming like an empty “container” into which “whatever” is ordered (that is, they loose consciousness in a total way).
That doesn’t sound much, but if you consider what “whatever” means, you can understand what we are dealing with. For instance, we can call from Edgar Cayce to Madame Blavatsky to any archetype and converse directly and normally with them. We know that we have a new tool and method, because when these personages and others were called the first time, all were surprised that such a contact possibility existed, stating that they were never called inside a human body before. Obviously they must use the neuronal circuits of the medium, but there is no other “coloration” of their personality from the medium’s side. So you can hear even their language accent and word usage (for a longer explanation of the method, you can look at: www.spiritaction.net ).
Because of this “breakthrough”, instead of being confined to the periphery of this limitless world, we can range far and wide. The only limit is our imagination, and the length of time that a medium can stay in that condition (20 minutes max, since it is always a problem of resonance of her body with the being called). To monitor the body’s condition, we have some “helpers” on the other side that give us a “real time” update either through another medium, or through the same one.
But, although I think that the invisible world’s “navigation” is extremely interesting, for the present time the method is used mostly for diagnosis and removal of those subtle energies that are the real cause of disease in a person (that is the case in approx 70% of the people). The diagnosis is done by the medium(s) before going into trance, by using her fully opened third eye. Obviously, we want to get results. These are usually obtained in one single session lasting no more than 15 minutes.
It is also my opinion that a great number of patients with (even severe) psychological problems could be helped and fully cured by this method (the presence of energy “squatters” in mental patients is encountered in almost 100% of the cases).
To give you, instead, an example of a physical problem solved, last year a lady with a history of three miscarriages came to see us (no European doctor hadn’t been able to help her). We discovered in her genital system (by a simple third-eye observation) a colony of “energy “vampires”; that is, primitive thought-forms, who lived off the fetuses generated. In about ten minutes they were “disintegrated” and, about nine months later, a healthy baby girl was born from her.
I know that I should elaborate on the information I am presenting, but perhaps I will do so some other time. I hope that I answered your questions satisfactorily and that I didn’t take up too much of your time.
