Consciousness is what we are, with Dr.Jude Currivan By Dr. Paula Joyce

Dr. Jude Currivan is a cosmologist, planetary healer, futurist and author of five books in 15 languages. Born a coal miner’s daughter, she became a top business woman in the UK. She has experienced multidimensional realities since childhood and has worked with wisdom keepers both alive and in spirit. Jude integrates science and research on consciousness with universal wisdom teachings to form a holistic world-view. This underpins her work to create fundamental change and sustainable solutions to global problems. She has a Masters in Physics from Oxford University and a PhD in Archaeology from the University of Reading. In 2010, she was presented with a CIRCLE Award by WON Buddhism International for her ‘outstanding contribution towards planetary healing and expanding new forms of consciousness’. In 2014, she was invited to become a member of the Evolutionary Leaders Circle that includes Deepak Chopra, Barbara Marx Hubbard and Jean Houston. Visit her at www.JudeCurrivan.com
Current ideas about existence and the Universe itself are shifting. Either/or is no longer the dominant mode of thinking. Researchers are beginning to understand our consciousness in broader, holistic ways, integrating the scientific and the spiritual. Dr. Jude Currivan shows how to reconcile quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory of relativity; explains how we are consciousness as opposed to consciousness being something we have; and proves experiences that we refer to as paranormal or supernormal are actually normal. Jude says: “By liberating ourselves from a limiting perspective, we can begin to not only understand but also consciously utilize the expanded insights offered by our inherent supernormal capacities, not merely to empower and benefit ourselves and enhance our own well-being and wholeness, but to appreciate and serve the ultimate oneness of all life.” Please join us Thursday to learn how these ideas will help us create a more just, sustainable and peaceful world.

THE PRICE OF CHINA-PHOBIA MAY BE AMERICA’S LEADERSHIP IN SPACE by Rebecca Costa

chiao_01

Space is a great stage for diplomacy. Yet, when it comes to cooperating with China’s space program, the United States may have forgotten that lesson. This week, former NASA Commander of the International Space Station, Leroy Chiao, urged leaders in Washington DC to strongly consider the consequences of rebuking China’s offer to collaborate in space. “We Americans have taken for granted that we’ve been the leader in human space flight. But it’s been almost five years since we gave up the ability to launch astronauts into space … It’s much more constructive to engage (with China) than to isolate. If we don’t we risk being left behind.”

QDNA® Epigenetics The Genie in Your Genes

QDNA Radio-02-2015-09-22-Dawson-Church-001

The Genie in Your Genes: Epigenetic Medicine and the New Biology of Intention author Dawson Church, PhD and Marina Rose, QDNA® Expose the Breakthrough Truths in Emerging New Cutting Edge Science.

Join Marina Rose, QDNA® and Dawson Church, PhD at 3:00pmPST on 9/22/15.

Science is always exciting with Frontier Science and then Emerging Science. The frontiers of science are always investigating and pushing boundaries of existing paradigms of science. As science advances entirely new avenues of inquiries take form in Emerging Science fields and then they become specialized and interdisciplinary. The evolutionary and revolutionary development of science at times  challenges everything we believe about the nature of our world and how we define ourselves within it.

Epigenetics was once a frontier science in 1942 and now it’s an interdisciplinary science field. Learn about the contemporary usage of epigenetics that emerged in the 1990s and how you can take control of your consciousness and use it mindfully to influence your genetic expression, where you can sometimes bypass years of therapy, as well as harmful drugs and invasive surgeries, to, in effect, do continuous genetic engineering on your own body. that impede our success.

Our magnificent award winning author and guest Dawson Church, PhD will reveal and tell us why ‘The DNA Spiral has become a Defining Icon of Our Civilization’. He will shine the light on genetic inheritance from generation to generation while, amazing us with research that discloses that some behaviors can be newly developed by many people during a single generation without any inheritance.

Dr. Church will talk to us about the Human Genome Project and the fascinating discoveries science found while cataloging all the human genes.

Dawson Church, PhD, is an award-winning best-selling author of a multitude of books. He has collaborated with leading authorities including Larry Dossey, MD, Bernie Siegel, MD, Christiane Northrup, MD, and others. His latest book “The Genie in Your Genes”, has been hailed by reviewers as a breakthrough in understanding the link between emotions and genetics. He explains Epigenetics and the remarkable self-healing mechanisms now emerging at the juncture of emotion and gene expression. He has authored numerous scientific studies through the Foundation for Epigenetic Medicine. He founded the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare to study and implement promising evidence-based psychological and medical techniques. He also founded Soul Medicine Institute to research and teach emerging psychological and medical techniques that can yield fast and radical cures. He is the editor of Energy Psychology Journal: Theory, Research, & Treatment, a peer-reviewed professional journal.

Galileo’s Middle Finger: Speaking Truth to Power and Power Talks Back

GalileosMIddleFingerImage

Join me for a conversation on VoiceAmerica Empowerment, 4/29 @ 10am PT, with Alice Dreger about the conflict between scientific evidence and some interpretations of social justice and “empathy” (in quotation marks). Dreger starts out as a graduate student exploring the condition known as “hermaphroditism,” people born with sex organs that are ambiguous as to male or female, now called “intersex.” In reading the text books studied by her medical student husband, she discovers the interventions performed to “normalize” people sexually into the two canonical categories of male or female. The parents usually follow the recommendations of the physician-surgeon who are articulating a supposed community standard that one’s genitals should unambiguously be either male or female. Dreger discovers that many of the people whose genitals were surgically transformed were subsequently lied to about their natal [birth] sex by well-intentioned doctors and well-intentioned parents following the well-intentioned doctor’s guidance. Find out what happens when Dreger’s research surfaces evidence that does not align perfectly with the some interpretation of a social justice agenda.

This is a powerful and disturbing work. Alice Dreger, Professor of the History of Medicine at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University, delivers a compelling narrative. A penis smaller than a person’s adult thumb or clitorises larger than one little finger, according to (some) conventional wisdom, have got to go. I am not making this up. The standard procedure was to surgically “delete” the offending member and surgically construct [some version of] the female genitals. This will, of course, resonate with Freudians everywhere as something motivated at the deepest levels of the unconscious. Not so Freudian is the proposition that if sex assignment from male to female and the raising of the infant as one rather than the other sex is the consequence, so be it. (Dreger is not interested in Freud in this text – that is my hobby.) Dreger discovers that many of the people whose genitals were surgically transformed were subsequently lied to about their natal [birth] sex by well-intentioned doctors and well-intentioned parents following the well-intentioned doctor’s guidance. Thus, the road to hell.

Dreger marshals evidence that people whose genitals are not surgically transformed as infants – but who have non-standard but otherwise healthy functioning genitals – are not worse off than those whose genitals were modified, and in many cases flourish. In at least one case, where the boy could not urinate standing up – and write his name in the snow with the stream of urine – due to the opening to the urethra being beneath the pen, the result of the surgery often produces a “cripple”. Yet the surgery continues to be performed. In other instance, the major concern expressed by the medical text books was that the child would become lesbian or gay. Ouch. Dreger “goes to bat” for these intersex individuals, recovering their narratives out of medical records and journals where they had been documented as cases. She advocates for them. She lobbies, blobs, publishes in the popular press. Then the unintended consequences hit. Some of those for whom she is advocating don’t like some of the evidence Dreger publishes. It is not sufficiently “on point” about transgender issues being exclusively a function of a man’s brain born in a woman’s body or vice versa. The idea that a man could love himself as a woman and so want to become a woman does not compute. As one might expect, research produces subtle nuances that require more than a sound byte or even a blog post. Suddenly Dreger finds herself the target of anger from the advocates for whom she was lobbying. It is not pretty. It gets ugly. Think self-righteous indignation as an expression of narcissistic rage and having one’s deeply felt values questioned by the evidence. There is no easy way to say it: some advocates of social justice seem to feel that the end justifies the means. The “means” include rampant forms of bullying and in-your-face confrontation, including charges of dubious ethical violations, invalid research, fictional claims about the researcher’s relations with his or her children and family, and the posting of toxic gossip on the Internet. The cause may be righteous, but the behavior is wicked and mischievous if not heinous.

Dreger survives and is vindicated. But then she begins to wonder if her experience of the collision of scientific evidence with advocacy and versions of its conventional wisdom was exceptional. Like most survivors she asks: “Is it just me?” It is not. It reminds her of the conflict between Galileo and the sedimented beliefs of the Church of his time. A point that underlies Dreger’s work and may usefully be made more explicit: The facts of empirical science are fragile. Not only can they be shouted down by bullies, purged by tyrants such the Italian Inquisition of the 16th century, or simply ignored by the average person, the facts can also be set upon by academic, university, or institutional agendas more dedicated to building a corporate brand – and being financially well funded – than attaining an evidence-based version of the truth. (An early version of this thesis, perhaps unknown to Dreger, is Hannah Arendt’s work on Truth and Politics. Not a historian of medicine but of political theory, Arendt makes the powerful point that if all versions of Euclid’s Geometry had been destroyed, mathematicians would still be able to recreate formal geometry out of the a priori forms of space and time; but if Stalin had really succeeded in purging all examples that such a person as Leon Trotsky had existed, then we really never would have heard of such an individual’s factual existence. Facts are fragile. )

A case in point. It is conventional wisdom since Susan Brownmiller’s Against Our Wills (1975), that rape is primarily an act of power by the perpetrator (usually a man), not one of sex. While not primarily a scientific treatise, it becomes the basis for research that gathers sufficient evidence and the thesis “power not sex” becomes “conventional wisdom.” Enter a young (male) scholar who has a strong hunch he can prove an exception to the rule. No, sometimes rape is motivated by sex. Sometimes a guy, who has no prospect that the intended woman would have sex with him (but who he desires sexually) decides to use force. This naïve academic sees a dissertation topic that is a cut above the usual scholarly drivel. A dissertation is delivered to that effect. Not only does all hell break loose – he is silenced by angry activists – but it gets worse. The phone rings. It is a prosecuting attorney needing help with a case. The District Attorney is bringing charges against a perpetrator, an alleged rapist standing trial for his crime. The defense is arguing effectively that science has shown that rape is about power, not sex. The perpetrator could not possibly have been motivated to the crime by sex. Science says so. Wait a minute. Rape is never about sex? It is now a defense against rape that there was no other motive than sex? Since 1975 we have seen date rape and the use of incapacitating “date rape drugs” such as anesthetics facilitate the violation. Surely advocates and scientists can encompass the possibility that sometimes rape is about power, sometimes it is about sex, and sometimes, it is both (p. 125). Don’t be too sure. There is a deep lesson about human nature here. Constant dialogue is needed to keep people in rational communication without distortion and manipulation. The desire to be righteous and justified is pervasive and extends across all political spectrums. The ability to listen has rarely been in such short supply.

In conclusion, Dreger offers reflections inspired by the Founding Fathers of the early days of the United States and such politician-statesmen as Benjamin Franklin. No stranger to risk, Franklin was both flying a kite in a thunderstorm and building a structure of government capable of correcting its own errors (not on the same day). Thanks to such men, we are all better off than Galileo when speaking truth to power. Free scientific inquiry needs a free social and fair political space to flourish. Justice requires access to accurate facts and a way of testing evidence that distinguishes fact from fiction The truth is vulnerable to the influences and distortions of the social organization of power. Granted that a scientist has not been burned at the stake for over 500 years, that is no reason for complacency. There have been many ruined careers and damaged lives due to bullying and political abuses. Dreger bemoans the “push down” of the press and investigative journalism – in short, the decline of the press beneath the pressures of a publishing market in distress, the Google-ad-industrial-complex, and on the Internet no one knows you are a dog. While the Internet is a multi-edged sword and sends fear into the hearts of tyrants everywhere, it is easy to abuse. It is a dubious format for rational discourse and evidence-based anything. That should not stop one from posting her or his peer-reviewed research (this is not an example of that) but it means one must also mount the soap-box on a regular basis.

The Science of Consciousness and ET Contact

Steven-Greer

In this conversation, Dr Steven Greer discusses the importance of meditation and higher consciousness both in making peaceful, human-initiated contact with Extraterrestrial Beings and in developing innovative solutions to problems that currently challenge our world. He describes some of the many ways that peaceful ET contact may occur and also explains the importance of understanding the science of consciousness when trying to determine how beings from distant star systems are able to visit Earth.

Dr. Steven M. Greer, MD, is widely regarded as the world’s foremost authority on the subject of extraterrestrial intelligence and is the founder of the Centre for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI). Now retired from emergency medicine, he is the Founder of the Disclosure Movement, including the groundbreaking National Press Club event “The Disclosure Project” in May, 2001. Over 20 military, government, intelligence and corporate witnesses presented compelling testimony regarding the existence of extraterrestrial life forms visiting the planet, and the reverse engineering of the energy and propulsion systems of these craft.

ET

Dr. Greer has studied the Sanskrit Vedas extensively and trained thousands of people worldwide in the use of meditation-based protocols for making peaceful contact with Extraterrestrial Beings.
