We Can Change Our Future!
Science and Technology
Scientific exploration, understanding and applications continue to grow at truly phenomenal paces. Scientific domains have expanded, into unexpected dimensions, like the dimension of consciousness. Pure scientific research has never had such growth; extraordinary breakthroughs have come through fusions of understandings and insights from diverse science domains; and useful applications of science continue to amaze and empower us, in ever-increasing ways. We benefit from scientific knowledge and technologies in so many ways. Perhaps more importantly, we are also deeply focused on developing wisdom and intuitive or inspirational processes for scientific advancement now. The golden age of science is now accompanied by a platinum age of humility, humanity, restraint, sensitivity and wisdom.
Extraordinary advances in the domain of physics continue to astound. Our understanding of subatomic particles and activities have improved phenomenally. We grasp now that their energy is drawn from the “zero point” energy of empty space, and they pop in and out of existence billions of times a second as fundamental building blocks of matter. In 2055, scientists at ZERN developed a prototype mechanism for converting apparently infinite zero-point energy permeating all space everywhere into energy we can use to produce electricity and, theoretically, into thrust for incredibly powerful engines to enable transit through space anywhere. That holds the possibility of interplanetary and even interstellar travel at speeds that make that feasible. Theoretically, that science may also soon let us 3-D print any matter, building from subatomic to atomic to molecular to potentially to any physical structure. Very exciting.
Through the phenomenon of quantum entanglement, physicists have developed the foundation for instantaneous communication, as far as we know, across any distances. Perhaps supporting the idea that there are no ultimate truths, or that everything is affected by its environment, conditions and external influences, for which there are ultimately no boundaries, scientists have succeeded in both increasing and slowing the speed of light, which was previously believed to be a universal constant.
Atomic fusion has demonstrated producing more energy than it consumes, which may also one day assist in space travel. Scientists have demonstrated very powerful “torus field” electromagnetic shields, emulating life, which if combined with zero-point or fusion energy sources, may allow very high-speed space travel with greatly reduced danger of harm from collisions with matter and objects in space.
In 2040, we began assembling a “permanent” joint space station orbiting Earth that is modular, solar powered, now has over 200,000 square feet of combined interior space, and now houses over 200 scientists, engineers, staff and visitors. In 2050, we established two joint space stations, in orbit around and on the moon, and this year, in 2060, we began sending people and materials for joint space stations on and orbiting Mars. These “joint” space stations are collaborations between scientific agencies of more than 50 countries, agreeing to share data, findings, knowledge and any new applications with all, as public domain pure science. Some ships remain in space to provide transportation between stations and other satellites. Earth surface to space transportation is accomplished with hydrogen engines.
Astronomy has been radically accelerated by data collected by the two joint extraterrestrial collectors, set up in 2045 and 2055, each in orbit around the sun within easy communication distances with Earth, but outside Earth’s atmosphere and magnetic fields. The first is a dish one kilometer in diameter, and the second is an array of six dishes, each half a kilometer wide and each pointing in a different direction. They gather and transmit electromagnetic radiation data collected outside Earth’s electromagnetic field and send it to Earth and the orbiting space stations. Data and knowledge from them are expanding fast.
They also collect energetic data colloquially called spirit energy, identified first by IOKS research, which we’ve discovered coming at us from all directions through space, in and around us. These provide data and information we have never had access to before. One panel is permanently oriented toward Earth, providing information on our own planet we’ve never seen before, including evidence of spirit energy emanating from the planet itself. All data from these arrays is public domain, shared freely with all, including amateur scientists and students, who’ve come up with many interesting findings and insights.
Advances in biology are considered even more impressive than in physics by many. Scientists have focused observation and analysis on many thousands of species of life on Earth not previously studied, and those have revealed astounding wonders, like: mechanisms that allow life to thrive in extremely harsh conditions far beneath the surface of the Earth, deep under its oceans and high in its atmosphere, including life we didn’t know existed on Earth; mechanisms for manifesting biological features that enable life to adapt to changing and varied conditions and evolve in new directions, apparently via will; systematic interactions between species, organisms, cells and sub-cellular structures we had not known; and intriguing biological changes and interactions accompanying exposure to different “spirit energies.”
We now have proven therapies for improving biological and natural system health through spirit energy. We have methods for testing biological theories and medicines that do not require abusing living beings. We’ve developed technologies based on functionality found in biology, like lenses imitating flies’ eyes.
We have developed maps and characteristics of bio-energetic fields surrounding all life. We’ve created bio-feedback therapies and tools for raising consciousness or affecting interactions with spirit energy. We can treat many more biological conditions that produce suffering in life. We still don’t know exactly what life is, but we better recognize life, and have at least learned to respect and honor it when we do.
Our computer science and information and communication technologies have advanced exponentially. We now have minuscule quantum processors that function thousands of times faster than 2020 chips. We can store data and information in living biological tissues. We can send virtually any amount of data through optical fiber bundles at the speed of light. We project 3-D and holographic images and video.
We 3-D print all kinds of things with a vast array of materials, including some forms of biological matter. We can communicate with anyone almost anywhere in real time, eliminating known language barriers using a Universal Translator service. Artificial Intelligence can do unique forms of problem solving and optimization, incredibly quickly. We interact with computer and communication systems by voice, and increasingly via biological interfaces reading physical impulses and brain waves, some commanding physical augmentations. Anyone can interact with incredible CS and ICT systems through tiny interfaces built into watches, pins, glasses, earbuds, or even integrated into clothing or embedded in our bodies.
They are used by almost everyone, from users at home, in school or outdoors, to engineers, scientists, administrators, planners, creators, artists, musicians, mechanics and most as we work. They put vast computing and communication resources at our disposal, empowering all kinds of activities and efforts. Augmentations include robotic limbs that increase human strength, modeled on capabilities of insects, optical lenses that allow on-demand magnified viewing via glasses and contacts, sensor networks providing information previously unavailable to people on the go, and tools for precise manipulations.
Scientific endeavor in all fields would not be able to advance at nearly the paces it has without CS and ICT technologies. CS and ICT technologies would not advance at their paces without scientific advances in other fields. Physics breakthroughs come via insights gathered in biology, astronomy and chemistry. Biology breakthroughs come via insights from physics, chemistry and other fields. There is an incredible virtuous cycle of cross-pollenization, cross-fertilization and cross-cultivation of data, analysis, thought, ideas and collaboration across traditional scientific fields. We’ve opened, and we share, cooperate, collaborate and assist across domains, which accelerates knowledge, understanding and advancement.
We cooperate and collaborate better across previous boundaries between professionals and amateurs. CS and ICT education, training, data access, analysis, communication and collaboration technologies have empowered amateurs to do incredible things, which are often fun and engaging interests, hobbies and pursuits for people outside of traditional boundaries. Students contribute many breakthroughs.
Scientific and technical advancement have been greatly accelerated by how we now openly and freely, share data, information, knowledge, ideas and insights instead of hiding it behind proprietary business walls and intellectual property claims and controls. Basically, we have realized that benefits to all of sharing freely far outweigh the benefits to mostly few of hoarding, controlling and exploiting for profit. We’re no longer competing to win over each other; we’re working to contribute to the understanding and improvements of all. The win-win-win-win-wins now rippling out around the planet from sharing are much greater than one person’s or group’s win from exploiting something tightly held for money.
It is mostly changes outside of science and technology, changes in business, consumption, governments, communities, and in the hearts, guts, heads and souls of human beings everywhere that have allowed these changes within science and technology. It’s not about getting lots of money or fame any more. It’s about challenge, passion, interests, needs, talents, gifting, growth, engagement, service and impact. It’s about contributing toward the best possible outcomes for all, creating real wealth and abundance.
Society invests in scientific and technological research and development like it invests in communities. Our government provides money to acquire needed resources for scientific and technological R&D according to its assessment of the potential to create and maintain real wealth and abundance for all. As part of budget processes, national governments decide how much new money to print each year and to provide for science and technology R&D to produce real wealth for all. Capital and R&D investments that produce sustainable long-term yields and benefits are quickly paid off as inflated returns are used to pay back fixed amounts. Paybacks of real benefits, like better health, efficiency or 3-D printed goods reduce needs for income to pay for consumption, lowering costs of living to all.
Joint ventures like the space stations and astronomical arrays are funded by countries deciding to print or otherwise contribute money toward shared investments and costs, with citizens agreeing to pay with eroded future currency values for future benefits that will exceed those costs. Wealthy and common people and organizations contribute to efforts appealing to us from the abundance our efforts afford us.
We invest our time and energies in efforts that appeal to us personally, producing and maximizing abundance and benefits for all, and share excess abundance produced by investing in efforts by others that maximize abundance and benefits for all. It sounds complex, but it is really very simple.
Professional and amateur scientists, technologists and those who support them have been rapidly evolving as human beings. It’s important to most of us that the pace of advancement in science and technology not outpace the advancement of our wisdom and capacities as human and living beings, integral parts of Earth’s miraculous web of life and being. If we’re not ready to handle it responsibly, we’re better off not having it. There is a concerted effort to evolve the creators, developers and users, in addition to efforts to advance knowledge and capabilities to impact our physical worlds.
Everything we do as part of science and technology is evaluated in depth through lenses of shared principles and values, for possible positive, negative and unknown impacts to anyone and everything, and for long-term implications to our spirits, lives and values, and to natural systems and other life. Technologies and products are not allowed to be released without deep understanding of likely impacts, adequate ongoing monitoring and study, adequate contingency plans for possible harmful outcomes, assurances creators will fix any problems they cause, and knowing benefits are big and harms are low.
Perhaps the most ground-breaking change in science and technology is the expansion of scientific inquiry into previously out-of-bounds realms of subjective experience, including how insights and inspiration help us advance our understanding and knowledge. In the past, science had limited itself to external, objective, reproducible and verifiable phenomena and experience in the physical world. Everything else was subjective, wishy-washy, suspect and not available for inquiry, in part because of power struggles with religious institutions that had claimed all that as their domains. If science ventured into subjective worlds, it could expect pushback and suppression by powerful religious interests.
That changed with the publication of the IOKS Framework, after a long period of gestation that included quantum mechanics bumping into the borders of subjective and objective realms in observing that the subjective observer interacts with objective physical phenomena, affecting physical observations.
In this period of great change, the firewalls between subjective and objective worlds, phenomena and realities began to crumble. Researchers proved the energetic state of an objective observer can change the results of objective experiments. The energies we resonate in our beings affect physical phenomena within and around us. Our energetic states interact with the energetic states of what surrounds us, and we can change our objective experiences by changing our subjective energetic states.
Scientists began experimenting with changing our own and others’ energetic states and observing what changes were associated with them, in ourselves, in others and in other things around us. We learned that changing our human states of being changes our perceptions of the world around us, perceptions that can be verified by external objective measurement. Simple things like “when I smile at the world the world smiles back at me” were found to be true. Radiating positive energy into the world verifiably results in positive energy reflecting back at us. Same with negative energies. What we give, we receive. As above, so below. Karma. The Law of Attraction. Verified. That blew minds on both sides of the wall.
Science got interested in the mechanics of insight or inspiration. Einstein had said things like:
“The only real valuable thing is intuition.”
“I didn’t arrive at my understanding of the basic laws of the universe through my rational mind.”
“I know very well that many scientists consider dowsing as they do astrology, as a type of ancient superstition. According to my conviction, this is, however, unjustified. The dowsing rod is a simple instrument which shows the reaction of the human nervous system to certain factors which are unknown to us at this time.”
“Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe – a spirit vastly superior to that of man.”
“The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self.”
Whoa, so our widely recognized greatest scientific mind ever acknowledged subjective sources of knowledge and understanding beyond our intellectual and rational capabilities. So, what did he do? How did Einstein develop his understanding? What was his inspiration? Yeah, what is inspiration? Where do breakthrough ideas come from? How else can we know?
Science got interested in the phenomenon of “flow,” getting in a state or groove in which we produce music, art, writing and thinking that is better, faster, easier and more fun than normal willful endeavor. People often produce better work in an hour of flow state than in days of intentional focused effort. What is that all about? Indian sages claim to be able to access the Akashic Field or Records in high states of being to gain knowledge and insights into almost anything. Rather than dismiss that outright, science began exploring it. We found that it was true. We could scientifically verify certain people’s abilities to acquire and share accurate knowledge they had no access to before by entering into specific energetic states of being. What are the properties of that state of being or of the energies at that level of being?
Scientific knowledge and abilities have been affected and accelerated by new methods of inquiry that involve changing the energy or state of being of the scientist. There are leading scientists today whose methods are “insights and understanding through meditation; verification through experimentation.”
It has done much for the peace of mind and reduction of anxiety for many to now believe scientific and technological advancement are much better balanced and tempered by humility and wisdom, so we’re less likely to be destroyed or harmed through technical capabilities, deliberately or unintentionally, ignorantly or belligerently deployed. There is no denying the many benefits we as humanity realize through powers of scientific knowledge and technologies. We are better wielders of such powers now.
