The Esoteric Science of Consciousness

Consciousness & Quantum Physics

In ancient history, we revered women for creating life and being connected to the cycles, like the seasons and the moon. Thus, we may have lived in a more matriarchal (Yin) society.

This differs from a patriarchal society, in that the focus is not on power but community.

Some of the earliest prehistoric art we find are the Venus figurines, dated between 38–14,000 years ago, depicting voluptuous women, and symbolizing fertility, motherhood, and beauty.

Scholars have made convincing arguments for their function as goddess figures, religious or shamanistic objects, or symbols of a matriarchal social organization.

Women’s menstrual cycles would have synced while living in these tight-knit communities. In ancient Native American, Bolivian, and African cultures we find patterns of celebration around these cycles, signifying a time when the women come together and discuss community issues.

Great importance was given to the world’s rhythms, phases, and seasons, which told us when to plant, harvest, and even change location due to temperature shifts, or migration patterns of the animals we hunted, and men simply lacked the biological connection women have with the cycles.

Around 12,000 years ago, as we began to settle in areas, there was a shift of power to the men, who were physically stronger and better able to defend the resources.

Families lived close together, and property began to be passed down from father to son, slowly eroding female autonomy and birthing the patriarchal society we are familiar with today.

They say that winners write history, often eradicating the memory of the previous paradigm as best they can.

The Egyptians defiled the statues of previous pharaohs and scratched their names from the walls and history. Witches, healers, and heretics were burned at the stake, eliminating anyone who practiced ”magic” or the “healing arts”.

Are we a species with amnesia?

Is it possible we simply forgot how to access specific skills that were developed by living within a community or culture that emphasized consciousness?

As we became more Yang in our own culture, did these abilities simply fade from memory?

There are countless examples of unexplainable artifacts and architecture that challenge our chronology of how civilization developed.

From the complex megalithic polygonal stonemasonry of Sacsayhuamán to the Olmec Heads, Costa Rican Spheres, and Diorite vases of Pre Dynastic Egypt, our craftsmanship and abilities deteriorated in quality and complexity over time, when the opposite should have been happening.

Gobekle Tepe in Turkey and the Predynastic Sphinx, both date back to 10,500 BC, and show an advanced level of stonework, art, construction, culture, and civilization, at a time when we envision Neanderthals banging rocks together, without even a structured language.

The Antikythera mechanism. A two-thousand-year-old Greek astronomical device sometimes called the world’s first computer, used a complex system of cogs and wheels to calculate the movement of the planets, and eclipses.

We would not see this level of sophistication again, for more than a thousand years.

Has our evolution been as linear as we have been led to believe?

There is an assumption, that we have never been as advanced as we are today.

You might be forgiven for thinking that gravity existed before Newton observed an apple falling from a tree, but no one had noticed it or understood it better than we do.

We have very little understanding of gravity, and almost no control over it, its effects are observable and quantifiable, but as yet, we are unable to generate the kind of artificial gravity on spaceships we see in science fiction.

If we were to master this field in any way, its effects would be profound in many areas like the levitation of heavy objects, space travel, and flying cars.

Interestingly these powers have been reported in the Bhagavad Gita, they called them “Vimanas” and they served the same purpose as flying cars.

Described in the Ramayana, one of the most important Hindu texts as

“The Pushpaka Vimana that resembles the Sun and belongs to my brother was brought by the powerful Ravana; that aerial and excellent Vimana going everywhere at will …

that chariot resembling a bright cloud in the sky …

and the King [Rama] got in, and the excellent chariot at the command of the Raghira rose up into the higher atmosphere.”

Our technology has enabled us to harness the power of the atom, giving us nuclear power, but it existed before we comprehended it and will exist beyond us, it is a fundamental law of nature.

In the 1920s, archeologists discovered Mohenjo-Dara meaning “mound of the dead men” in modern-day Pakistan, dating it to 2550 BC.

At street level, 44 skeletons were found scattered, in what appears to be a blast radius.

Objects were fused together, and rocks were turned to glass.

Radioactivity above normal levels was recorded in some of the skeletons, and radioactive ash was discovered in the geology of the surrounding area.

In the Mahabharata, the weapons of antiquity eerily resemble our modern weapons, not only in destructive capabilities but in their descriptions of radiation poisoning too.

“Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful vimana, hurled a single projectile, charged with the power of the universe.

An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose with all its splendor.

It was an unknown weapon, an iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death, which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakes.

The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. Hair and nails fell out;

Pottery broke without apparent cause, and the birds turned white.

After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected…

To escape from this fire the soldiers threw themselves in streams to wash themselves and their equipment.”

When we think of technology, we tend to perceive it from our frame of reference, current technology.

Hence, it seems absurd to believe that any ancient culture could have had technology superior to ours.

And yet, many of the principles in the ancient scriptures align perfectly with the cutting edge of quantum physics and mechanics.

How is this possible?

Our ancestors did not have tools like microscopes or computers.

Instead, their tools were consciousness and awareness.

They may have used these tools much more effectively than we do today, with our reliance on modern technology negating any need to develop our consciousness.

Quantum physicists studying meditators have observed that they are rewiring the electrochemical pathways or synapses that transmit neurons in the brain.

The observer effect is also well documented and shows that observation can affect outcomes on a subatomic level, perception actually bringing things into existence.

We are surrounded and bombarded by energy fields.

Some are more physical, like sound waves, light waves, magnetism, and radiation.

Some are subtler and explain the concepts of Chi, Prana, and the heart’s magnetic field.

These fields envelop every cell of the body, extending beyond the physical form, and are measurable from many feet away.

We are affected by, as well as produce energy fields; some have form, others are created through thought or emotion, or some combination of both.

The pulses of the heart’s magnetic field, for example, are modulated by our emotional states and affect individuals within the range of our field.

A field is defined as an area where a force exerts an influence at every point within that field. Thus you can alter a field outside of the body to affect the energies inside the body and vice versa.

So as we observe and alter the physical and energetic aspects of ourselves, we have the potential to affect anything within the range of our field.

We know all things in our universe are in motion, vibrating, oscillating, or resonating at specific frequencies.

We perceive objects as solid, but they are merely atoms vibrating and rotating in space.

If we could access or affect things at a subatomic level, we would be capable of many things that would perhaps be construed as magic or miracles but are merely quantum physics in action.

“A miracle is not the breaking of physical laws, but rather represents laws which are incomprehensible to us.”

- G.I.Gurdjieff

Ancient yogis were said to have mastered certain powers or ‘siddhis’ that enabled them to levitate, walk through solid objects, walk on water, become invisible, and control nature, organisms, or other people.

As we begin to comprehend the nature of all things, the possibility of mastering these energy fields or causing atoms to vibrate in specific ways using consciousness starts to become increasingly feasible and not supernatural at all.

Could these be signs of an advanced lost technology that existed in ancient times, a forgotten technology of consciousness?

I feel like we subconsciously yearn for it, knowing that we are missing something, but unable to put our finger on precisely what it is?

We might catch glimpses of it in practices where the intention is to raise consciousness like Yoga, Meditation, and Pranayama, when visiting sacred sites, or recognize it in art.

“Ancient art has a specific inner content.

At one time, art possessed the same purpose that books do in our day, namely: to preserve and transmit knowledge.

In the olden days, people did not write books, they incorporated their knowledge into works of art.

We would find a great many ideas in the works of ancient art passed down to us, if only we knew how to read them.”

I aim to teach my readers about Restorative Yoga, Consciousness, and the Esoteric Sciences and Philosophies that underpin the practice.
