PHILOSOPHICAL ESSAY

INTRODUCTION

In 1922, Russia became a part of the Soviet Union, which existed as

a powerful state until 1992.

This country was governed by ruthless dictatorship under the rule of a communist party. At the top of party leadership was a small group of

functionaries called Politburo. This group of people made all political and economical decisions for the Soviet Union. The head of Politburo posses unrestricted power. From 1922 until his own death in 1953 this power was captured by Josef Stalin.

He wanted to create a new bible and forced almost all of the population of this huge country to study this bible. In other words, he understood that for consolidation of a powerful state such as the Soviet Union, a new religion must be created. This new religion should be based on the doctrine of Marks, Engels, Lenin, and Stalin regarding the revolution of workers and poor people, which would destroy capitalism and replace it with socialism, which in the future would be converted to communism. Communism for any ordinary person would be ultimately like paradise on Earth because everyone would be able to obtain any they desire.

In 1938, under the supervision of Stalin the new bible, named History of the Communist Party (Bolshevik) was published and millions of copies circulated.

Immediately after publication this book become the mandatory studying material for the entire population. Historical events were presented in Stalin’s interpretation: tendentious and falsely.

Stalin wanted people to believe in him as God. All he did was right for the people and therefore the other parties and other ideas were false and dangerous. He demanded total acceptance of his views and those who didn’t agree with him, even members of his own party, were arrested, shot or sent to Siberia to hard work, and die a slow and agonizing death. Anyone disagreeing with him were termed “ enemy of people” and persecuted.

Deprived of free information the overwhelming majority of the populations truly believe in Stalin’s doctrine just as the Christian people believe in the Gospel.

The central part of the book was philosophical chapter # 4 and

the content of this chapter was outside of historic context.

The chapter described a materialistic point of view, the belief that nothing exists but matter. We feel the world around us by our 5 senses and nothing beyond these senses exist. In other words, matter is primary and consciousness is secondary and objective reality is perceived by our 5 senses.

However, only part of objective reality is conceivable by our senses. The next chapters prove and substantiate this statement.

Chapter 1

THE OUR SMALLEST BROTHERS

So the Great Russian poet Esenin called an animal world.

We are accustomed to their presence around us and are not constantly thinking that there are lives around us.

Nevertheless, animal behavior, instincts and the ability to survive in dangerous world amaze everyone, who is trying to understand these phenomena.

ANTS

Dr. Ted Schultz, a scientist, who dedicated his life to understanding the complex behavior of ants, once said:” There is very little that humans have invented that ants or other insects hadn’t already thought of millions of years before humans were around”.

.

Schultz studied fungus-growing ants, which depend entirely on a species of fungi in order to survive. If these crops fail, says Schultz, the entire colony dies. They have no other way of existing. Practicing this agriculture is the only thing they know.

Like humans, fungus-growing ants are true farmers and the survival of the colony depends on the food they grow. Anywhere from a few hundred to over five million ants can inhabit any given colony at one time, and every single one has a job to do.

The gardens consist of a special fungus, that the ants eat. Certain ants within the colony weed the garden, some dispose of waste, some excavate new underground chambers, and still others forage outside the nest for new compost on to which their garden grow.

Just as humans protect their homes and families, the largest and strongest “soldier” ants attack intruders, including army ants, anteaters and even human scientists. Schultz describes the reaction to an intruder.” One or more workers ants will react by releasing alarm pheromones. Soldier ants within the colony will start moving toward the source of this pheromone, and attack anything that’s not supposed to be there.” Soldier ants arrive immediately and begin biting intruders in order to protect the colony.

Although ants can be savage in their response to enemies, they can be gentle to their friends. This is especially true when it comes to caring for their pets. That’s right: ants have pets.

Some ants care for aphids, a kind of insect that feeds on plants. Ants tend to these slow-moving creatures by protecting them from parasites and predators. Then, the ants “milk’ these so-called pets for honeydew, a sweet liquid produced by the aphids just for ants.

Both creatures need something from the others, and the exchange of services works out well. The ants provide protection and the aphids return the favor with nutrition.

Looking through the clear plastic into a fungus-growing “ant-farm” in the Schultz laboratory, you see a city within .The garden looks like a coral reef, a fluffy, white, spongy mass interlaced with tunnels and passages. It’s fascinating to watch the efficiency with which the ants work. Each ant has a particular job that helps the whole colony survive. Cooperation is key to the ant’s survival.

Extremely amazing is another feature of some ant colonies- Slave Making. Slave making ants live only in climates that are cold for part of the year, probably because their raids are precisely aligned to the changing of the seasons and could not be easily timed in places with long-lasting tropical summers.

The enslaved species of Leptothorax cluster in small, enclosed spaces, such as acorns. The individuals are tiny, no larger than two millimeters, which is slightly smaller than their americanus enslavers.

The slave makers are fundamentally incapable of caring for themselves. They are not hardwired to do all the things that ants normally do. The only thing they can do is raid. And raid they do.

When slave makers ants descend upon Leptothorax colony, they create such a big commotion that the Leptothorax adults are forced to abandon their offspring .The slave makers scoop up larvae and pupae and carry them back home, where they are raised into a life of slavery. When the unwitting slaves die, the cycle of raiding begins again.

BEES

Honeybees use nectar to make honey. They use their long, tubelike tongues like straws to suck the nectar out of the flowers and they store it in their “honey stomachs”. Bees actually have two stomachs, their honey stomach, which they use like a nectar backpack, and their regular stomach. The honey stomach holds almost 70 mg of nectar and when full, it weights almost as much as the bee does. Honeybees must visit between 100 and 1500 flowers in order to fill their honey stomachs.

The bees return to the hive and pass the nectar onto other worker bees. These bees suck the nectar from the honeybees’s stomach through their mouths. These “house bees ”chew “ the nectar for about half an hour. During this time, enzymes are breaking the complex sugars in the nectar into simple sugars so that it is both more digestible for the bees and less likely to be attacked by bacteria while it stored within the hive. The bees then spread the nectar throughout the honeycombs where water evaporates from it, making it a thicker syrup. The bees dry the nectar even faster by fanning it with their wings. Once the honey is good enough, the bees seal off the cell of the honeycomb with a plug of wax. The honey is stored until it is eaten. In one year, a colony of bees eats between 120 and 200 pounds of honey.

There is another type of bees: bees-scouts. When the flowers nectar is not available during the day, bees-collectors stay in the hive. At this time the bees-scouts fly around and inspect the area with flower. As soon as they find a sufficient amount of nectar, they return to the hive and somehow signal to the bee-collectors that it is time to start to collect nectar and show the direction to fly. Interesting, that if each bee looked for availability the nectar’s itself, they wouldn’t use a lot of nectar for themselves. So, the division of labor between different types of bees makes the nectar collection much more effective.

However, what is the most amazing in the bees behavior is their ability to orient themselves. How bees are able to return to their hive? Scientists

finally found an answer. When a bee flies out their hive, it some times circles around the hive. Apparently the bee is trying to remember it’s territory, where the hive is located. In their mind the picture of the hive location is memorized as would be on a computer display. After that the bee begins to look for nectar.

Bees will find their own hive even if they fly kilometers away. Recently scientists proved that bees are able to determine distance. Insects were placed in two different tunnels of equal length. One tunnel was pictured inside with multicolor pattern; another tunnel was pictured with monotonous lines of one color.

Something interesting happened! If bees flew through the monotonous tunnel, it seems to them that tunnel is very short and they mistakenly calculated distance to the hive, returning later than usually. But if the bees flew through a bright tunnel they “think” that the distance is very large. What does it mean?

The solution of the puzzle is in intensity of the visual impressions.

When all is covered with bright signs, a bee “thinks” or believes that she traveled a long way. However, if she sees no visual bright signs, she “thinks” that she is not flown far enough.

Can this also be true for a human life? If a person leads

a monotonous life, it seems to him that he had lived very short life.

BIRDS

For decades, zookeepers have puzzled over why certain bird species, male or female, show absolutely no interest in mating and producing offspring. The problematic birds are known as monomorphic species.

The males and females are so identical in size, shape and color that humans cannot tell the difference without completing genetic testing or surgery.

As it turns out, the way they are housed in zoos may be preventing the birds from figuring out who’s who. Finally, the puzzle was solved in Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo. The secret is ultraviolet light. Without it, the birds can’t seem to tell apart females from males.

Most indoor bird habitats in zoos don’t have ultraviolet lights as a part of the environment. Almost all glass manufactured today for windows and skylights blocks ultraviolet lights because it fades fabrics and carpets.

At the Brookfield Zoo scientists conducted an experiment, where males and females of the same songbirds were placed in glass cage that allowed ultraviolet light through. When they turned the light on the birds become hyperactive and mated well. When they turned the ultraviolet light off, the birds don’t see the opposite sex and the mating stops.

Birds have four types of visual receptors -one more than humans, which enable them to detect light within the ultraviolet spectrum.

In other words, the visual range of the human eye is between 375 and 725 nanometers (wavelength). Birds in addition to this range see in ultraviolet light (wavelength is between 300 and 375 nanometers). This means that part of visible spectrum is beyond of the human senses. Let me to add that humans don’t see another part of the light spectrum-infrared light (700-850 nanometers).

Although birds also don’t see this part of the light spectrum, there are animals which sense infrared spectrum of light.

MAMMALS

Dolphins

Mother Nature contains many miracles. There are many interesting stories about these friendly animals. Let me mention here an amazing chracteristic of dolphins. A dolphin makes separate short signals with maximum length of signal 0.0002 seconds. Therefore, each 1 second a dolphin produces 5000 signals. These sounds have a frequency of 150000 hertz (vibrations per second).

The dolphins use these signals to navigate or to look for herds of fish. This characteristic for dolphin is extremely important. A dolphin is not able to look straight ahead because his eyes are located on the sides of head. So, he sends a sound signal and sound waves are reflected if they meet an obstacle ahead .These sound waves come back to the dolphin. Somehow

a dolphin, who gets a reflected signal, determines the distance to an obstacle. This concept of locating things is called echolocation. Therefore a dolphins lives in the sound world .It is especially true in full darkness of sea.

Bats

Bats possess very developed echolocation abilities. We can see the bats moving and flying but the human ear cannot sense echolocation. The sound pulsations of bat locators are beyond the diapason of sounds, which are conceived by humans. Bats generate sound waves of 30 kilohertz and higher. The signals come back to them as echo. Echo contains tremendous amount of information. This information tells bat relative speed of target, her vibration, size and the most important, the coordinates of the target location. A bat uses, so called, Doppler effect, which tied sent signal with returned from target one by measurement the signal amplitude and phase of the return signal. Scientists know this effect. But how a bat is almost perfect machine for data processing? It process data with accuracy 99%.

THE ANIMAL MAGNETIZM

Skeptics still doubt widely known assertions of modern extra senses that flow of energy is moving from the healer to patient. The popular

physician and hypnotist Mesmer, who had lived in 18 century, called this mysterious flow as animal magnetism. In 20 century scientists discovered that many animals able to feel the Earth magnetic field and use this ability for orientation.

The turtle (Chelonia mydas) covers up to 4400 kilometers in its annual trip for breeding. But how they get oriented in this long trip, how they are coming back to place of original habitation? Scientists thought that the turtles sense minor changes in Earth magnetic field.

However, the experiments, conducted by groups of investigators from different countries, prove that this assumption is wrong. Turtles went on an annual trip from a small island Ascention in the Atlantic ocean. They traveled to beaches of Brazil. Several small magnets were attached to the turtles to affect their orientation. Nevertheless, all turtles under investigation successfully reached their destination. At the least, scientists obtained the negative information, proving that the turtle don’t use the Earth magnetic field for orientation. So, what information the turtles use? Maybe, they are posses sixth sense? Still, this is a puzzling.

Millions of books and articles are written regarding man best friends –the dog. We want to mention here one ability of a dog: the expectation that the owner will soon be home.

Each day terrier Jeity from Manchester waits for a half an hour for his owner Pam . It comes over to the entrance door and stand in anticipation. Once, Pam lost her job, and as a result of that she was coming home at any time. Regardless, Jeity knew exactly when Pam would be back, still sat up by the door for a half an hour before Pam came.

While we lived in the Soviet union in the 1970’s, we had an German sheepdog, named Zerbi. When I, came home from work, as I only approached the entrance of our five floor apartment building, (we lived on the 4th floor ), Zerbi jumped and waited at the apartment front door. It is difficult to understand how she could smell and sense my coming through 6 flights of stairs. The aroma in the stairways was always terrible due of different meals, cooked in each apartment and, mostly, from smell of food waste in specially installed buckets on each floor. Nevertheless, she sensed my or Irinka approaching magnificently.

Russian scientist Serge Muge in his book “About body and soul” tells about amazing case of dog orientation [1]. He in his turn quoted an article in the newspaper ‘Evening Moscow’ from 3-02-1988. Here is a brief overview of it’s content. An auto plant worker in city Mozir, (Belorussia) Slava Stupovez will never forget December 31, year 1982. This was the day dog called Vesna came. It was extremely difficult to recognize at this dog, who touched Slava’s knees on Mozir street the good looking sheepdog he left in 1979 in the city of Kuybishev. The parents of Slava decided to move from Kuybishev to Mozir. The distance between these cities exceded 1000 miles .The neighbor temporarily took care of the dog.

Slava brought his parents to the new apartment and came back to Kuybishev. Here is where he found out that Vesna had disappeared.

He lived and worked in Kuybishev for two more years. After that he moved to his parents to Mozir. How can we comprehend the fact that a dog found his owner after 3 years. Slava was explaining this by the dog’s devotion and faithfulness. However, Muge,the Russian Scientist, thinks that these

qualities may not explain the dog flight. He offers a different, non-materialistic explanation. The dog was extremely nervous after the absence of the owner, therefore, at least, part of the dog’s mind or spirit was separated from the body and traveled through unknown space (possible through a fifth dimension) and, finally located his owner in Mozir. Accordingly, based on this information the dog start to travel in that direction and found his owner. However, the owner for a time went to Kuibishev and in a few years come back to Mozir. And here the dog met his owner.

It is possible to bring many examples of amazingly surprising animal behaviors.

But a reader may ask: “What is there in common in described examples of behavior of different species? What is there in common between the ants and bees working specialization, birds range of vision, turtle orientation, dolphins and bats echolocation and the mystery between a dog and his owner?”

The answer is that these unlike animals possess some inaccessible sense for human being senses. Scientists are starting to understand few things, but they understand nothing in other occasions. For instance, the British scientist Roper Sheldreik is convinced that animals possess a sixths sense and that people and animal bonded by telepathic ties. Not judging this problem, it is possible to say with confidence that a world beyond our senses does exist.

Or it tells us that the world simply is not as it seems.

Chapter 2

THE KIRLIAN EFFECT

KIRLIAN-an inventor from the Russian city Krasnodar was

working as a hospital electrician. In 1939, he created installation which pictured objects located in a high frequency electrical field. The first picture was his own hand. After developing the film

a striking thing was discovered. Clusters of energy and light radiated from his hand.

A fresh cut leaf is surrounded with a bright aura and numerous points of energy radiation. If a leaf was photographed several days after it was cut, the picture would show only traces of aura and no points of energy discharge.

The followers of Kirlian cut a leaf from a plant before the plant branch was photographed. They said that they saw a phantom of a leaf exactly on the place where the leaf was cut.

The aura of a human hand will show chaotic pictures of energy radiation if the human is ill. If a healthy man’s hand aura is pictured,

the photography will show ordinary radiation. The latest researches of the Kirlian effect discovered that it is possible to diagnose some illnesses in accordance with the type of radiation radiating out of person.

Some scientists (Kononenko, 1997,Mitchell, 1997) are developing special methods of diagnosis using the aura pictures. By photographing human aura it was possible to record the hand aura of several people, having double aura on some fingers, which may correspond to specific psychological problems. The other scientists assume that Kirlian camera may record only the aura at the first level.

More light substances of ethereal human field are not developed in Kirlian photography’s.

EXTRASENSORY PERSEPTION (ESP)

ESP is most commonly referred to as a ”sixth sense”. It is sensory information that an individual receives which comes from beyond the ordinary five senses sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. It can provide the individual with information of the present, past and future, as it seems to originate in a second, or alternate reality.

We consider ESP in application of human healing.

The history of human healing by affecting a biological field started in the depth of centuries. It is not our goal to investigate history of this phenomenon. We restrict our observation to examples of recent years.

In the Soviet Union, between the years 1922-1991, biology and medicine according to the Communist Party doctrine has only a materialistic explanation of all problems. Scientists, who were trying to get away from this philosophy lost their job or even went to prison like the famous biology professor Vavilov. The careerists and untalented people got the highest scientific position in Universities and research institutes because they were devoted to the Communist Party.

Only in the seventies the underground political views aroused.

In Leningrad the whole school of theosophy was unofficially created.

This philosophy was popular in the beginning of 20th

century and was established by Blavatskaya. Her philosophy was tied to ancient Hindu religion and Yoga. Human beings not only have physical body, but additional layers of a biological field. The state of this external field can tell a healer about the character of an illness. Out of this, a method of healing of different illnesses followed.

The extrasensory healers conduct the diagnosis of the person’s biological field without touching the person. Their hands sense the deformation of a field. Using his own bioenergy or by mental inspiration healers try to reconstruct defeated parts of the field. For an independent observer their manipulations looks like magic.

In my opinion, the outstanding researcher in field of bioenergy and extrasensory perception is Serge Lazarev from Saint-Peterburg,

Russia. His ideas, methodology and philosophy described in detail in his 9 books under common title “The Diagnosis of Karma” [2]. (Karma –in Buddhism or Hinduism means that totality of a person’s actions in any one of successive state of his existence thought is determining his fate in the next). It is not my intention to disclose his philosophy in detail because I do not agree with all his ideas. However, it is important for the next chapter to bring this citation from Lazarev book:

“While I researched the human biological field, I understood that the body field structure and physical body are existing as two opposite sides of human being, which are influencing each other. The history of treatment of different illnesses prove that healing is much more effective, if the healing action is directed not to a sick organ and not to the whole body, but to the reason for the illness. Analyzing the deformation of field structure, I saw that many illnesses start out on the field level, many years before developing on body level.” (L2)

It is possible to conclude that the diagnosis of the biopole state is a separate part of extrasensory perception (LSD). We can name it sixth sense, because this is the information, which is comes to the extrasensory healer from outside of the ordinary five senses. Some people think that this way of obtaining information may predict the person’s future and disclose his past. Maybe this information has been stored in some alternative reality.

TELEPATHY AND CLAIRVOYANCE

The existing problem in this area: there is a lot of information. However it is very difficult to distinguish true from false. Besides that, some amazing cases of clairvoyance in space or time do not fit to standard scientific classification, because these cases might be an accidental hit. Nevertheless, we selected the most reliable cases described in serious literature.

Since the 1950’s the Central Intelligence Agency of USA (CIA) is using the extrasensory perception for the purpose of intelligence. At that time, the Soviet Union was a major adversary of the United States. The total closeness of the Soviet society, the suspicion of everyone in espionage and death sentence for suspected spies presented extreme difficulties for CIA to recruit someone inside of the USSR. Looking at another approach to penetrate beyond of ” iron curtain” the CIA investigated scientifically unproven methods.

The serious American magazine “US News and World Report” in the issue 01-27-03 / 02-03-03 published information about experiments conducted by Stanford research institute in 1972. These experiments were performed accordingly to the CIA request and their $50,000 allocation to the institute. [3]

An experimentator-telepath had to look at the Soviet secret missile base, located next of Semipalatinsk in the Soviet Kazachstan. He was given the geographical coordinates of this base. As a result of this experiment, the telepath draw locations of several buildings and draw also a mysterious big crane. He distinguished the underground premises as storehouses of soviet missiles. Satellite pictures confirmed this information accordingly to the statement of the CIA senior professional. See Fig 1.

Fig 1

A reader can see the remarkable similarity between the left picture, drawn by remote viewer and the right picture –an illustration, based on satellite photography.

Among other problems, there was an attempt to find out a soviet agent inside of CIA. Telepaths, which were trying to solve this problem, came to this conclusion:

Fig 1

An unknown person lives in the Washington vicinity. He drives an expensive foreign car, possibly, gray color, he lives in a luxury house and has intimate relations with a woman from South America, possibly, Columbian. At that time, this information was not used. In 1994 the CIA employee Aldrich Ames was arrested. He lived in luxury house in Washington area, he drove a Jaguar and was married to a Columbian woman. The color of his car was gray.

The difficulties in getting information through telepathy were to find out a person with extraordinary abilities and in the science inability to explain the similar experiments.

WOLF MESSING

I am going to tell readers about my personal experience. Leningrad, Soviet Union, the year 1950. In the theater, Wolf Messing had a show. By this time, he was a worldly famous person with fantastic abilities to remotely reading other peoples thoughts as well as forecasting the future. He was a Polish citizen and a Jew and in 1939, when the German Nazi army and Soviet Red army occupied Poland, he found himself under Germany occupation and was arrested. But he was able through hypnosis to gather all prison guards in one room and force them to open his cell.

This helped Messing escape from prison. Later he managed to flee to the Soviet occupation zone of Poland. Here he found himself in Soviet Belorussia and trying to find a job in the circus as a magician. Let me remind you that at that time, the official ideology of the Soviet Union was based on Atheism and Materialism. Therefore, people with extrasensory abilities, softly speaking, were not welcomed. Messing had a good chance to be imprisoned. However, the Messing glory outstripped his appearance.

The powerful dictator Stalin wanted to see the Messing phenomena.

He invited him to Moscow, where Messing performed several complicated tasks, per Stalin request. One of his task was the following: Go to the State Bank and withdraw 100,000 rubles by showing the teller a simple blank piece of paper. Messing performed this well, but when the elderly teller was shown the paper used by Messing to get money he had a stroke. In another test Stalin ordered Messing to get out of the Kremlin without a pass and Messing went through several KGB posts, showing blank paper. As a result of tests, Stalin ordered KGB not to touch Messing, although KGB (called at that time NKVD –people committee of internal affair) wanted to get him.

So, this man gave a performance on the Theater stage. The program called this performance as “Psychological experiments”. I with my friend Yuri Levi were able to buy tickets at the last row. The hall was overcrowded. Before the Messing performance, some Communist party official read a small lecture. He explained that the outstanding abilities of Messing do not contradict materialistic philosophy. He said that viewers should correctly (from materialistic point of view) appreciate the performance. After that, from the viewers a presidium was selected, which was sitting at a table on the stage. Among the presidium members , some were unfriendly to Messing. These people knew in advance that Messing was a cheater. Of course, whole presidium included members of the Communist party and, possibly, KGB agents.



They asked viewers to send notes to presidium with different tasks for Messing to do. And presidium selected from these notes the most difficult ones, a person, who wrote a problem was invited to the stage and mentally ordered actions, which Messing supposed to perform.

As a rule, a problem was similar to this:

“Go to the row number X, find out a woman on a seat Y take a small mirror from her purse and bring it to the stage.” Or,” take a notebook from a man, which is sitting on a row Z and a set W, find out a given last name in the note book and, remember to show the public the three last digits of his phone number. “ After Messing performed a task, someone from the presidium read the original note and the public saw that Messing executed the task correctly. While performing tasks Messing was under heavy stress. Sometimes he screamed to a leading person: “You are thinking about something else.”

I remember, when someone from the hall screamed “ A cheater!” Hearing this, Messing lost his temper and screamed with broken Russian , that he traveled around the whole world and never, absolutely never heard such insults as in this hall.

Pretty soon I noticed that my friend Yuri Levi is writing a note.

Then he put his cigarette case to my pocket. He sent the note to presidium. And suddenly I see that he is called to the stage. His task was selected as very difficult for Messing. Yuri goes to the stage, and Messing comes over to him and asked him to start think about his task.

(I need to tell you that Yuri Levi was always able to concentrate deeply on any problem. For instance, when he was solving some math problem, he absolutely ignored any noise around.) I see that Yuri and Messing are coming in my direction. (Messing performed this task with covered eyes, he was as blind man. However, he took Yuri for a hand.) He came over to our row, took me by my hand and led me to the stage. I was slightly embarrassed, because all the viewers in the hall were watching us. When three of us found ourselves on stage under bright lights, I saw Messing next to me. He was approximately 45. His forehead was sweating and he was trembling, probably from high stress. The Messing eyes were covered with a scarf and on the back of his head I saw a big tumor, which also trembled. (It was benign tumor of fat as I learned later).

Yuri stands next to Messing and ordered his actions. Messing pull out the cigarette case from my pocket, took one cigarette, put into my mouth, lighted a match but he did not light a cigarette and put it out.

Then he pulled out a comb from my other pocket, brought it to my luxurious hairs (at that time), but he did not brush the hairs. He only touched my hair twice with the comb. After that he performed other actions on my head, which I do not recall. Briefly, when the task written by Yuri Levi was performed, someone from presidium read Levi note.

All viewers were convinced that Messing performed the task absolutely correctly.

When censorship was lifted after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, many books were written about Messing. I will mention only one of books, which is written sincerely and with love by his friend –physician Tanya Lungina. The name of the book: ”Wolf Messing-the puzzle man”. Publisher ERMITAGE issued the book in 1982. [4]

When we try to understand phenomena that are not explained by science, it is very difficult to distinguish fictions from nonfictions. You have to read a lot of overstatements and lies. But how does one separate true from false? How does one determine that this particular source is trustful and other source is not?

I believe, that the only criteria in this situation is your inner sense. Luckilly, I have this sense. This is proven by the fact that my friends and my women never betrayed me. I would like to add that my first impression when meeting a new person creates in my mind an either attractive or repulsive character. And following meetings, communications and conversations with this person, as a rule, do not change my opinion formed at the first meeting. This is fully related to women of my life.

The same criteria I apply to appreciate a book.

At the same time, even small falseness or visible intention of the authors to follow definite political line irritates me.

Therefore, applying the same criteria to the book of Tanya Lungina about Messing I can with honestly confirm the sincerity and truthfulness of the author. And Tanya Lungina also is an unordinary person; she is journalist, physician and writer. And she was a close friend of Messing.

Lungina writes about some predictions, which she heard from Messing. Here are her words:

“ The Messing’s wife Anna Mikhailovna got very sick- breast cancer. After regular treatment- surgery for breast removal, chemotherapy and radiation therapy she returned home from the hospital. Once she was visited by very famous in medical world doctors- member of Soviet Academy Blokhin, who was a head of oncological institute and academic Kassirsky , hematologist, widely

known in the medical circles of the world.

It was the beginning of June; the smell of the lime tree flowers permeates air next to open window. The stars of medicine are sitting next to the Anna Mikhailovna bed. It looks like they feel badly for the unsuccessful treatment. In order to have rest for Anna Mikhailovna the visitors, Messing and I went to the kitchen. (it was typical one bedroom Moscow apartment). Wolf Messing couldn’t sit down, he walked back and fourth. Doctor Blokhin broke the silence.

He said: ”Wolf Grigorievich, don’t endure so much. You know, sometimes it happens that patient is very sick, but suddenly his health improving and he lives long time .I remember…”

Messing interrupted him and screamed:” Do not talk to me this way! I am not a boy! I am Messing. Don’t tell me stupid words! I know that she will not recover. She will die.”

He was trembling, red spots covered his face and it seemed that he will lose consciousness.

Suddenly, he calmed down standing for a minute in the middle of kitchen and said:” She will die August 2 at the 7 p.m.”

After that he relaxed and calmly sit down. I looked at Blokhin to appreciate his reaction. The famous doctor was shocked from this supernatural prognosis. The rumors about this prediction become known in medical and scientific circles of Moscow. Many people with mixed feelings were waiting the fatal day.

August 1 is my birthday and to-morrow... I would like to cross over the next day, but August 2 stepped up.

In the morning of August 2 I got invitation to visit Messings. It was complete silence in the apartment. Sometimes the phone rings and people send a hello to Anna Mikhailovna. She was in full consciousness, she thanks people who called, and nothing mentioned the close end of her life. After 6 p.m., she start to talk more than usual but distinct and clearly. I was replacing her nurse, which went home. At 6.30 she asked me to bring a glass of water. The fear filled me grows with each minute.

At the 7p.m. Anna Mikhailovna passed away. Her death was predicted with accuracy of 1 minute.

The second case of fulfilled prediction is described in the book of Leningrad author Nadezda Kramova. Here is her story:

“ I met Wolf Messing at the time of war. At that time a group of Leningrad writers were evacuated to Perm (former Molotov). We lived in hotel in the single high rise building in the city. It called seven-floor building. (By the way, I also stayed in this hotel one night in 1954).

Once in the entrance hall I saw a short man with full head of uncombed hair. By passing me, he was looking attentively at me and went to the exit.

“ Who is he?”-I asked the hotel clerk.

“ You don’t know? This is Wolf Messing. He arrived yesterday”.

This name meant nothing to me at the time. However, I was trying do not miss his performances.

One day after his performance, I delayed with the hall departure. The hall was almost empty when I left it. When I opened an exit door, I saw heavy snowfall and strong wind. Within two steps you can see nothing. I saw Messing standing next to the door.

“ The damn weather- he said in German-as in the hell.”

“ Worse –I said-, because in the hell is warm.”

“Are you speaking German?”-He asked and looked at me with suspicion.” This is good. I know that you live in the seven floor hotel, I saw you in entrance hall.”

I nodded being surprised with his memory.

“Let’s take hand in hand and go”-he continued in German.” Now, at least, it is possible to speak with someone, for me it is more difficult to speak Russian.”

“ And where is your assistant?”- I asked.

“ She is usually going home after break.”

Since that time I would often wait him next to exit and we would walked to the hotel together.

“But only talk quietly, said he, because during war time it is dangerous to speak German. Once I almost was arrested as a spy”-

warned Messing and smiled.

I experienced very disturbing days at that time. From Leningrad, surrounded with Nazis troops, letters from my husband were stopped. I heard rumors that he was killed during air attack. I decided to ask Messing for help. However, I didn’t talked to him directly because I knew that he was forbidden to work on personal basis. And I asked his assistant to talk about me.

“He agreed to work for you as an exception’-she said. Come over to his room to-morrow at 3 p.m.

To-morrow at this time I knocked to his room.

“Do you want to ask me about fate of your husband”-asked Messing.

“ What want to know women at the time of war. You don’t have to be Messing to know that”- I thought.

“But to give you an answer to this question you must be Messing” answered he to my thoughts and smiled.

Suddenly, he became very serious.

“ At first, I would like to be familiar with your apartment in Leningrad.

(He pressed strongly my hand). Enter to foyer, go slow, on the left is door to the neighbors room, right-your room, enter your room.

No, the piano is not standing next to wall, but next to window. Window glass is broken , the piano cover is open and snow on strings.

But why you stopped? Go ahead. The second room is almost empty, no table and chairs, Books are lying on the floor in the middle of room. But, enough! Now listen to me! (He throws my hand). Write!

(His face became pale and stressful). Your husband is alive .You will see him. He will come here …July 5 at 10 a.m.

He silenced and closed eyes. I was sitting, being afraid to move.

“ Now, go away immediately. I have evening performance and need a rest. I am tired. Go away”- he screamed.

Soon Messing left this city.

The July 5th was approaching. I always knew that my husband almost died from hunger and he is in a hospital in serious conditions. It was impossible for him to travel to Ural, at least in the near future. However, the Messing prediction didn’t come out from my head. I ,to be on a safe side, was preparing to meet my husband. I exchanged some products given to me by coupons. For example, vodka for butter, bread for onion and potato .I used also an exchange three square meters of fabric, which I got from the writers organization.

July 5th has arrived. I was sitting alone in the room afraid not only to go to get lunch to the cafeteria but also even go to the entrance hall for hot water.

The time was running. 10 am, 11,12…4 pm,5,6. Every 5-10 minutes there was a knock on the door and my woman-friend asking:

“How it is? Is he came? Not yet?”

I was sitting there hungry and in a bad mood .I felt cheated and blamed myself for this.

At 7 p.m. , I heard a weak knock in the door. I opened the door and saw my husband!!! He had a backpack and hold in his hands two loaves of breads.

“My God! I am waiting for you the whole day!” –I screamed.

“How do you know that I will come?”- he said. It happened accidentally, I didn’t think about it. I got out from the hospital and suddenly I was called…

“OK, we’ll talk later. I see that you are hardly standing.” I took the loaves from his hands and helped him take off the backpack. Shouldn’t I wait for him , I would not be able to recognize my husband through the appearance of this old man. He became gray and lost a lot of hair. He was only 42 and very handsome when I left him. My heart shrunk. “I really was waiting for you in the morning, but you came in the evening. But this is not important. You have come-this is the main thing.”

“ Why in the morning?” –he said. I arrived at 10a.m.

“Why? I was horrified. Where you been the whole day?”

“You know, everyone, who came with this train was given

two loaves of bread. I was standing in line for 8 hours. I was not able to refuse bread.”

“My God! I have enough bread! “-I want to cry, but restrained myself. Standing in front of me was the man, who experienced the Leningrad blockade, where hundred of thousands of people died from hunger and I understood him.

When I returned next year to Leningrad and entered my room, I saw next to the broken window a piano with open cover. Snow melted and strings were covered with water. In another room the floor was covered with books. I didn’t see chairs or table or bookcases. Our neighbors burned these in the cold winter of 1942. I was glad that this helped them to survive.”

This is the end of Nadezda Kramova story.

I would like to add to this Messing story that per Stalin’s request he predicted in 1942 that war would be won by the Soviet Union in the beginning of May of 1945. This is absolutely true and accurate.

EDGAR CAYCE

Another great man, who opened a window to the unknown, was Edgar Cayce[5]. He was born in 1877 in the American state of Kentucky. He was not like kids of his age because he preferred reflection and thoughts to noisy kids game. When he was 10,he was presented with the Bible. He learned to read independently and trusted Bible stories. Soon he knew the Bible by heart. A man, who knew him very closely during the last 18 years of his life, describes the life of Edgar Cayce. Edgar prayed a lot. He asked God to give him ability to heal sick people. Once, at night, his room suddenly was covered with bright radiance and he saw a woman next to his bed. He was very afraid. He wants to say something, but was not able to open his mouth. The woman smiled: ”Don’t be afraid”-she said.

“Your prayer was heard. You will have the abilities you asked for. Be honest and help the sick and suffering people”. Then the radiance went away and the woman disappeared.

It is hard to say if either of these events really happened or may be a legend. However, since that time Edgar obtained extraordinary abilities to diagnose illnesses and treat people despite of lacking professional medical knowledge.

He performed this during hypnosis, into which he immersed

himself, without help of others. Being in this condition he observed a patient, made a diagnosis, recommended treatment and answered questions. A stenographer wrote his words, which he pronounced during the sleep, because after awakening Edgar did not remember what he said during the sleep. This information about the patient, which Edgar learned in a state of hypnosis called reading. Edgar performed about 30,000 readings during his life.

Readings incorporate different people, but sometimes Edgar performed several readings for one patient. He did this when he needed to get more details regarding the treatment or when additional symptoms of illness have been shown. Each time Edgar Cayce dictated a needed answer while sleeping. Once he recommended medicine, which was impossible to find in pharmacy. At the time of second reading Edgar said that this medicine is available in one drugstore in Ohio State. Telegram was sent to this drugstore with request to mail the medicine immediately. The reply was that this medicine was available over there but was sold out. What should he do? Edgar was asked to get more information. He started a third reading. While sleeping, he said that there is a bottle with this medicine in this drugstore, which is placed on the upper shelf in storage room. The new telegram was sent. The shocked owner checked and admitted that this is true, he forgot about this one. The medicine was sent immediately.

Besides stenographer, local or arrived physicians, relatives and subsidizers, who financed the Cayce hospital construction in Virginia -Beach, were witnesses of his readings. It is important that Cayce performed these readings free of charge. He was afraid that if he requests money for readings, he would lose his extraordinary abilities.

Most of his patients recovered or their health became much better, even though people, who came over to him usually lost any hope in official medicine. However sometimes, even reading didn’t leave hope.

This case happened with his sick mother. While sleeping Cayce told that her soul should be free from her body.

The Cayce approach to healing may be expressed with treatment, which is associated with today’s alternative medicine. He very rarely recommended surgery, preferring a conservative treatment with herbs, oils, different extracts, massages etc. He applied also homeopathy medicines and recommended sometime the use of iodine in different concentration.

I think that despite his amazing healing abilities, the best surprising part of his treatment contained his accurate search of a patient. He usually found a patient, while sleeping and would say “there is a body”.

Sometimes he was given a wrong address .In this case, Cayce immediately informed that there was no body at this address. He conducted readings from his house finding patients not only in the USA, but also in Paris, Rome and Mexico.

Once, one of Cayce acquaintances wrote to his friend in New York about Cayce’s abilities. His friend answered that Cayce is an ordinary swindler and offered to handle an experiment –perform a reading on him. Cayce was offered to find this person in New York and follow his itinerary from his home until entering his office. Edgar said that this man while going to an office, stopped at a tobacco shop, purchased a cigar, then he went to his office and started to read his mail. He then made a phone call. Cayce even reproduced the content of the mail and part of the phone conversation. The text of Cayce reading was telegraphed to New York. The answer was:”You are absolutely correct. I am coming to Bowling Green (city in Kentucky, where Cayce was living at that time).

Arriving in Bowling Green, he invited Cayce to New York, adding that Cayce will earn millions dollars other there. But Cayce refused because money was not important to him.

There are plenty of examples of the correct illnesses diagnoses, which Cayce made during the hypnosis sleep. The best doctors were in great embarrassment.

Interesting how Cayce himrself explained where his knowledge came from. He said:” Edgar Cayce mind as minds of other people consist from conscience and unconscious. The unconscious forgot nothing. Cayce is different from other people due his ability to communicate with the unconscious of other peoples. When the physical body died, only the conscience mind is dying. The unconscious mind still exists after death. Therefore, Cayce being able to communicate with the unconscious mind of other people, was getting the knowledge of billions of peoples, the knowledge accumulated by their unconscious.

However, when Cayce awoken, he knew nothing about his messages and was surprised while he was told about the contents of his readings.

Interesting, when asked, while he slept, about reincarnation, Cayce answered positively, confirming that souls passing through many cycles of Earth return. This statement contradicted Christianity. Cayce trusted the Bible absolutely, so therefore he suffered internally when he understood that response. Later he came to conclusion, that his answer was correct.

Cayce was able to communicate with dead, however he did it rarely.

Here is one of examples.

Once Cayce wanted to see in a dream his first child, who passed away at early age. He saw many children standing by layers. In the third row from top he saw his son Milton, who recognized his daddy and smiled. Suddenly, Edgar found himself next to a grave of old women, which owned flower shop. He often bought flowers in this shop for his ill friends. She comes over to him, smiled and said: ”Your kindness helped many people. Maybe you don’t understand what these flowers mean for sickness. But be patient with kids.” Edgar was ashamed, because he was irritated often with the behavior of his two sons Huge and small Edgar. Then she continued: “Can you do a favor for me? Several months ago a man, who owed me $2.50, left money in your Photoshop (Cayce owned a Photoshop). He wanted you to give money me when you come to buy flowers. You were absent at that time, and he left money with your assistant. She put this money in the lower right drawer of your desk. The money is still there. Later she quit. I ask you to give this money to my daughter. She needs it.

After awakening Edgar told his dream to his wife, Gertruda. She said:” Don’t worry, this was only a dream”.

Edgar comes over to his desk. Under the papers in the right lower hand drawer he found an envelope. The name of the flower shop owner was written on the envelope. In the envelope was money-$2.50,(not a small amount at the beginning of 20 century). He stood for some time next to the desk.

It is possible to talk endlessly about Edgar Cayce. However ,I will move on. By the way, he passed away in a beginning of 1945, predicting the date of his own death.

VANGA

Vanga Dimitrova was born in 1911- Bulgaria in the village of Petrich [6].

During her childhood ,she was an ordinary girl, not aware of her abilities. Her father was drafted to the Bulgarian army and her mother passed away when Vanga was just an infant. The girl for a quite same time was under watchful eye of neighbors. Vanga was skinny with blue eyes and blonde hair. Her abilities were hiding inside of her.

She liked to play games where she treated illnesses and she offered different herbs to her friends.

Her father came back from army after the First World War and married.

Her stepmother was a good, caring woman. Her father took care of the home animals and Vanga was responsible for transporting the milks cans. Once, when she was outside, a terrible hurricane hit. The strong wind broke trees. A whirlwind lifted Vanga and dropped her in field. She was found after a long search. Her eyes were covered with sand and she got a serious eye illness. The physician told her that eye surgery is necessary, but Vanga’s family was not able to afford surgery. Unfortunately, she lost her vision and in 1925 she was sent to special home for blind people. After the death of her stepmother she come back home to help watching her small siblings. There was the poverty at home. She would work during the day and cry at nights.

Extraordinary abilities appeared gradually. Nobody remembered their birthday, but many people recalled later how she helped her father find a sheep, stolen from a herd, where he was herdsman. She accurately described a yard where the sheep was hidden. She said that she saw this in her dream. She noticed, that sometimes she saw bad events in her dreams and these events later came true. Her talent specially was requested during the Second World War. The people tried to get information about their relatives.

Therefore they went to woman, who might say something about their fate.

Her oldest brother, Vasil joined the guerilla troops. Vanga wept and implored him to stay home. She had a premonition he would be killed when he will be 23. He didn’t trust her. He left in June and the Nazis captured him in October. He was tortured and killed when he was 23.

Vanga explained her extraordinary abilities by transparent essences around her. She cannot explain where it came from. These essences sent her specific information about people. The distance and time of an event has no meaning. Any person’s life is run as a movie before her eyes. But Vanga was not able to prevent an event from happening.

Besides clairvoyance and predictions, Vanga healed illnesses. She used only herbal treatments, not medicines. She helped many people. But she was not able to help her husband Mitko. For twenty years she had a good and happy family. However, Mitko gradually became an alcoholic and she could not change his fate. When Mitko was dying, she was standing next to his bed and weeping. Then he passed away, and she fall asleep. She was sleeping until his funerals and after that she said: ”I escorted him to place, which was prepared to him.”

Vanga was not afraid to die. Here is an extract from her conversation: ”I already told that after death the body is decomposing, but part of body or soul, I don’t know how to call it, is not decomposing. This part of person, maybe this is soul stay alive and continues development to reach higher plane. This is the soul immortality.”

Many eyewitnesses recall Vanga’s communication with the dead. Vanga said that dead souls come to her, because for them she is a door to our world. She said once: ”When someone is coming to me, his dead relatives are coming too, asking me about something and give me answers, and I only passing to alive information which I am gathering from the dead.”

Once a young man visited Vanga. He explained that evil people killed his brother. He left three children and a sick wife. Suddenly Vanga told him:” I know, why you come to me. You want me to tell you who killed your brother. I don’t tell you about this, because you want revenge. Don’t do this. “Vanga did not allow anybody to have revenge, because, she thinks, evils eventually will be punished, if not for the villain himself, but for his descendants.

One peasant complained to Vanga that all his children are dying at a very early age. He had 11 children, and no one survived. Vanga reminded him that when he was teenager, he severely offended his mother, who became pregnant at an old age. Soon his mother and her born child died. The young man forgot about this event. Nature is ruthless to him because he offended the most sacred thing –life itself.

The Vanga phenomena attracted many famous scientists.

One of the first scientists, who tried to independently estimate Vanga‘s clairvoyance, was professor Dobriyanov.

He researched the Vanga phenomena quantitatively.

He spent a lot of time with Vanga, wrote notes of her explanations and performed many records. Soon he issued the book” The quantity research of Vanga phenomena” . He researched 18 Vanga conversations with visitors. In these conversations, he found 823 messages, which spread out this way:

True messages-445

Alternative -288;

False messages-90.

Using this data, he calculated the coefficient of telepathy communication –CTC. CTC is equal 0.716. (If all messages were true, CTC would be equal to 1 and if all messages were false CTC would be equal to 0).

To appreciate the significance of CTC=0.716, two more experiments were conducted, where instead of Vanga, two other women spoke with visitors. These women have a reputation of fortunetellers, but they missed Vanga abilities. Their CTC compiled 0.280 and 0.230.

A skeptical reader may ask:” Any events of true clairvoyance happen extremely rarely and the people able to do this compile a very tiny part of population”. This is true, however, the size of my research is not even allowing mentioning the smallest part of known clairvoyance’s: men and woman. I will continue to mention some of them.

JERAR CRUASE

Hollander Jerar Cruase (1909-1978) collaborated with police; he determined if a search for a person who is alive or dead and described in details the place of the crime [6]. A personal drama opened this surprising possibility. Unexpectedly, being in a trance state, Cruase saw the place where the body of his missing son was hidden. Later, this abilities happen to be permanent and the police asked his assistance, when official search was exhausted.

As usually, Cruase, came over to the police station, looked through the investigation materials and pieces of evidence. After that, he slowly plunges himself in a state of trance. In this state he grabbed a pencil and drew the place where missing person was located. Finally, policemen told him:”Enough”. A movie was filmed about his work. In one of the episode he recognized place of crime, adding amazing detail:” A child drowned .His body is sucked in pipe. “

Usually, these “space travels” made him absolutely exhausted.

In the 1960’s,Interpol asked him to help investigate

an abduction by the terrorists of Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro. He agreed to help. Somehow, terrorists learned about Cruase arrival to Italy. Cruase was killed by terrorist’s bullet.

JULIA VOROBYEVA

She told the following story[7]:” I was working as a crane operator in Donezk, Ukraine. This accident happened on March 3,1978. Strong wind, wet snow and rain struck my cabin. Suddenly, the crane master phase (380 volts of alternative current) was shorting. I was rescued and sent to the hospital. Almost six months after I left the hospital I was not able to sleep, because of terrible headache. Sometimes, I would scream the whole night. I was given the second group of disability.



After another 6 months, I started to sleep. My headaches disappeared. But I started to feel strange. I started to see the human’s inner organs. It was horrible. I thought that I am becoming crazy.

My mentality changed completely. I felt that some invisible essences were leading me through my life.

When French scientists verified my abilities, they gave me twelve tests. I was told that they moved through half a world and no extra sensor performed all 12 tests. I did well on eleven tests, the twelfth test left.

I felt that I was now almost under hypnosis. I was told:” If you are clairvoyant, you should be able to read biofields of dead people”. From the list of pictures, he shows me one. There is a young man in this picture. I said that he recently died from AIDS. Correct.

There is a picture of a girl. I said that this girl will be an artist. Correct answer: the woman works a whole life as an artist.

The next question is about a woman in a white gown sitting on the bed. I said that this is not a physician, but an actress, playing a role. Correct.

The next picture is the face of child, approximately 6 years old. I said that this child was born without legs. This is also the correct answer.”

What do you feel, getting an information?

“If a person is dead, his eyes on a picture are very peculiar. I can’t better explain that.”

Do you getting information through vision?

“Yes. In 1987 the Kiev institute of nuclear physic studied me. I was shown people, which were missing one or two inner organs. And I correctly determined an anomaly.

I heard, that you are helping to seek missing in actions soldiers of the Afghan war?

“I can’t find them. What I can do: to tell, looking on picture is he dead or alive. Last year, one guy, the son of a KGB employee was missing. I was called to KGB and they showed me a picture. “What can you say about him.?” I said, :”He is alive, but he is far away from home ,near a body of water. “ After that they asked Moscow clairvoyance’s.

They said he is dead and buried next to our airport. The KGB people

looked for the body, they dug all area around ,but found nothing . Then they again came to me. I repeated what I said before. In 3 months, the father of this guy called me and said : ”Yulia I will trust only you. We found my son in the seaport of Novorossisk.”

I love people and I want to help them, if I can.

STEFAN OSSOWIECKI

(time traveler)

Ossowiecki was born in Moscow in 1877. As he recalled later, he discovered his great abilities at a early age[8]. He was able to see a color aura around people’s heads, he could move things by a mental effort. He selected a carrier of chemical engineer. In 1919, hardly escaping death during Russian revolution, he moved to Warsaw. He worked there as a chemical engineer and tried to develop his extrasensory abilities. He helped to find missing people and missing things. Sometimes he took part in criminal investigations, but he never charge money for this service.

In 1935, scientists offered him to take part in an interesting experiment. The rich Hungarian man Dionysus Dzonki ,who passed away 8 years earlier, wrote in his will, that 8 years after his death ,a small sealed package should be shown to a clairvoyant and the latter must determine what is contained in the package. Only Dzonki knew about the contents of the package.

Fifty witnesses watched Ossowiecki work. He was given

the package and forty pictures ,although Dzonki was shown only on one of the picture. Looking through the pictures Ossowiecki recognized Dzonki as a the man making the package. Then Ossowiecki described Dzonki’s life and recognized a professor, who kept this package eight years. After this, Ossowiecki began to attentively watch the package. He said ” Here is something , which is related to other worlds.” Then he added “ This is a fragment of a meteorite, however, I also feel a piece of sugar.” The package was opened. There were pieces of meteorite wrapped in the candy paper slip.

Later, in 1936, Ossowiecki took part in an experiment in which he traveled to ancient Egypt and Europe, observing people, events and getting information first hand. He stated that he almost lost his body when he moved to another plan, which he called the state of

“super consciousness”. He said that he was able to see history like a movie running in reverse. He also said that he could stop this movie or run it to any time destination.

The Ossowiecki stories roused an interest among scientists. Ossowiecki was acquainted to the Warsaw university professor, Ponyatovsky. Their joint work began. Ossowiecki usually took in his hands some object from a past epoch (silicon tool ,hammer etc) ,then he somehow moved to another dimension . From there he told with details about people lives back a thousands years ago. He substantially improved archeological knowledge of the old epoch. Although some of his information was impossible to verify, many details of his stories convinced scientists of his truthfulness.

Over the course of the experiments Ossowiecki offered over one hundred pieces of information, details about the past that at first seemed inaccurate, but later proved correct. He said that Stone Age people used oil lamps and he was vindicated when excavations in Dordogne, France uncovered oils lamps of the exact size and style he described. He made detailed drawings of the various animals people hunted, the style of the huts in which they lived, and their burial customs-assertions that were later confirmed by archaeological discoveries.

Time travels were accompanied with extremely high stress condition for Ossowiecki. Nevertheless ,Ponyatovsky wrote about four thousands pages in his notebooks. As soon as the war started, Ossowiecki worked hard, helping people to learn the fate of missing relatives or friends.

The Gestapo (German secret police ) arrested Ponyatovsky in 1942 and shot him in 1945. By this time, Ossowiecki was not alive.

By the close of 1944,during the famous Polish revolt, German’s brought 10,000 Polish citizens to a park and shot them on the spot. Ossowiecki was among them. He predicted his death :”I know that I should have terrible death, but my life was beautiful”

His wife Sofia was arrested after his death, but later was released.

In 1952 an unknown man met Sofia on the street and gave her a package. Inside the package were notebooks of Ponyatovsky, which were written at his experiments with Ossowiecki

However, these notes are not yet published.

TELEKINESYS

A person possessed with this extraordinary ability can act upon metallic things by mental concentration. The most famous man with this ability is Uri Geller[10], who is in good health and living in England. He was spoken about in 1971,when he was 24 and was living in Israel. At that time he was working as a magician. He became widely known after he met an American parapsychologist Puharich. He was working with Uri several years and tested his psychokinetic abilities. Uri said that he doesn’t know where his abilities come from. He felt them early on, from childhood. When he was 6 years old, he understood that he might read thoughts of his mother. Once she came back from friends where she played cards. Little Uri looked at her and named the sum of money, which she lost. Another time Geller ate soup in one restaurant when a spoon broke in his hands. Spoons and forks in other people hands became bended. By age thirteen Uri got control of his abilities. He was able due to strong mental concentration to break a bicycle.

While he had a test at school, he was able to read thoughts of good students by simply looking steadfastly at the backs of their heads.

Doctor Puharich published the book “URI” after several years of investigation of Geller abilities[10]. He hypnotized Uri and while in hypnosis, Uri and Puharich heard a voice ,which he described as metallic and not terrestrial. However, Puharich writes about some very fantastic things, like the disappearance of objects and their reappearance in different place (for instance, a ring disappeared in Israel and after that it mysteriously appeared in

an apartment in New York and the story is a camera was “transported “from the USA to Uri’s flat in Israel and many similar things).

I submitted a message to Uri Geller on December 09,2002,and asked him to confirm that Puharich’s book is correct. He responded as follows:

” Hi, Yury. Yes, the book is true.

Dr.Andrija Puharich died a few years ago. I did indeed go through all those events. Uri “

But Dr. Puharich was an extraordinary person and, probably, at the time of hypnotic sittings, he somehow placed in Geller’s sub consciousness his own vision of the world. And Uri being sensitive to other people thoughts, told about this in hypnotic state.

In June 1972, Uri arrived in Munich, and one of the journalists asked him to do something for his viewers. Geller thought for a minute and answered: What do you think if I stop the overhead monorail on half way? Journalists were satisfied with this answer and decided to use for demonstration of Geller’s power overhead monorail, which transported cabins to the mount Hohvellen. The cabin moves up and Geller began his mental concentration. Then the cabin start moving down. Suddenly, Uri falls down. Reporters saw his falling and they wanted to stop the experiment. But at this time the cabin stopped halfway down. A monorail operator called to

Service room and he were told that cabin stopped as a result of broken fuse. The fuse was checked, but no signs of intentional tampering were found.

Once Geller appeared on British TV. This was a typical Sunday at noon. Geller advertised that he would try through mental concentration bend forks and spoons. Viewers, who confirm this phenomenon, were asked to call to the TV center.

And on Sunday, soon after setting time , phones began to ring.

Uri bended 300 spoons and forks .More than 1000 clocks, that did not operate before, suddenly appeared repaired.

The famous German engineer ,rockets creator, Verner Von Braun who lived in the USA was very interested in Uri Geller’s abilities. He invited Uri to his home to demonstrate Uri’s skill.

Geller was able to flatten the gold ring of Braun. After that Verner Von Braun learned that battery from calculator, which was replaced only in the morning, died. As soon as Geller took the calculator it started to operate again. After these demonstrations Veener Von Braun assumed that Uri Geller somehow could generate electricity.

Many scientists, the followers of Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein studied the Geller phenomena. Scientific magazines many times published results of Geller investigation at Stanford Research institute, which supported his extraordinary abilities.

The most severe critic of Geller was the professional magician

James Randy .He stated that the Geller achievements are refining tricks .In 1970, Geller suggested to picture him with camera, where the object lenses are closed. The professional photographer, Stondill, from London magazine” News of the World” pictured him this way. He watched Geller attentively who was sitting in front of him. When the film was developed, the picture of Uri Geller was clearly visible.

Uri Geller now lives in Great Britain. Among other things he uses a map for prediction of places in the Earth with potentially big raw materials reserves. The geological companies are paying a large fee to him as a consultant.

Uri is a vegetarian. This in his opinion is helping him in searching for oil , gold and raw materials. He wrote several widely known books.

Uri Geller is not the one who can move things through mental concentration. It is possible to remember other people with similar abilities. The Russian woman Rosa Kuleshova , for example, by mental concentration can move tennis balls on a table.

A tennis ball , of course, is not the overhead monorail ,but the essence of these experiments is the same.

Chapter 3

HISTORY OF PREDICTIONS

Reading examples of predictions from recent past, a reader may think that clairvoyance became widely known only in 19-20 centuries.

This is far from true[9]. The similar events were widely known to ancient civilizations also. The ancient Greeks and Romans admired, so called, oracles – sacred places , where everyone could question God and get answers. The answers were delivered through middleman or middle woman. These people were in state of trance and communicated directly to God. A priest usually translated some fragmentary words and phrases to normal language, related to questions. The main God of forecasters was Apollo. The most famous place for prophecy in the ancient world was the Apollo cathedral in the city of Delphi (Oracle from Delphi). A woman priest, sitting on specially designed high chair, gave answers. In this case she was only one middle woman between them asking the person and Apollo. Many priests were in a state of deep ecstasy after drinking water from the holy source.

The activity of typical oracle (Apollo in Claros)

described in a book of Roman historian Tacit :” Here is a priest invited from definite families, but most often from Millet, inquired who wants to address oracle. He asks only the names of these peoples. After that, he descended to caves and drink the water from the holy source.

Then, he often being illiterate, stated by poetry answers to the questions, which everyone mentally assigned to God.” Tacit wrote that oracle from this place predicted premature death of emperor Germanik, who later was poisoned.

The German philosopher and psychologist Carl De Prel, which died in 1900, considers life of people in his dream. He is particularly interested with hypnotic dream. He brings many examples of hypnotic dream, in which a person diagnosed his own illness and recommended treatment. But some people in the state of hypnosis (he called this state somnambulism) diagnoses and treat other people. In general, this is the same that Cayce performed.

The author brings many examples of the correct illness diagnosis, given by somnambulist. Here is one of the examples that happened to Munich doctor, Von Garles . His wife, who was in Leipzig at this time, became ill. She felt suspicious spine pain . The friend of Dr. Von Garles, professor Lindner, who lived in Leipzig, decided to seek advice about her illness from one somnambulist who lived in Dresden .Garles knew nothing about it.

The author describes the story told by doctor Garles , “ Lindner asked a somnambulist if it possible to her somehow mentally travel to Leipzig and examine the Dr. Lindner wife. She said that this is possible ,if he tells he how to find a house where is the sick person. Lindner answered that it is easy to recognize a house, using two signs, the house located across the church and also there was a water pump well next to it ( It happened in the middle of 19th

century). Somnambulist said that these signs are sufficient. A little bit later she was told to look at the house and room where she found the sick woman. Then she described the room furniture and the patients dress, adding that the patient lies on the sofa. Soon she said that the illness came from a cold and that the woman will recover. This happened later “.

Paris Medical Academy heard in 1831 in a report by the committee of physicians regarding hypnotic treatment and somnambulism.

The report was met with total silence. When someone offered to print the report, academician Chassell protested. He motivated his protest that “ if the considered events are really true, we would have to forget half of our physiology knowledge “. This was the reaction of official medicine.

THE DEATH PREDICTIONS

Premonitions related to personal death.

I would like to mention that in this research I avoid any predictions based on fortune telling .We are considering only prediction which were obtained through the extrasensory.

The great Russian scientist, psychologist ,and physiologist,

Vladimir Bekhterev stated that some people have a presentiment of their own death, although he did not accept abilities to predict the other peoples death.

The former Foreign minister of czarist government, Izvolsky, recalled that Prime Minister Stolipin always had a presentiment that he will die a violent death.[9] “He told me this in an amazingly calm manner “-said Izvolsky.

However, maybe Stolipin foresaw his end because there were many attempts to kill him. If someone is trying to kill you several times you may think that in some day your killers would be lucky.

But here is another example.

The Great Russian writer, Gorky remembers in his book about his youthful years, a conversation with his friend, a writer named Pimen Vlasiev ,

*Once on Saturday we went to the bath. We drank tea in a cafeteria after washing. Suddenly, Pimen , looking strangely at me said:” Wait a little bit”. His hand holding a saucer with tea trembled, put the saucer on the table and as if he listened something, baptized himself.

“What happened, Pimen ?–I asked .

“ You know, this minute a God’s thoughts touched me. It means that pretty soon God will call me to his work “.

“Come on, you are a very healthy man “, I replied.

“ Be silent “-he answered. Don’t tell me. I know for sure.

On Thursday the following week a horse killed him.

Another memoirist, The Red Army General Merezkov said that during the civil war in Russia he was in charge of a small detachment. Once one of his soldiers (his name Govorkov) brought him a letter to his relatives. Govorkov was certain that he would be killed in the next combat. His feeling came true the next day.

One more famous story . Professional pilot and journalist James Collins predicted his own death . He wrote on the eve of the bomber testing flight : “ You are going to read Collins words ,written by him ,but somehow after death. The novella was ended this following paragraph: “ Down…A roar of fallen steel, sudden flare… yes, here it is…wings are broken…

Cold, but trembling fuselage was the last thing which my warm living body felt. Terrible frightening roar of motor, converted in deafening rumble while meeting the earth , this were my last death song. And I am dead now.”

The presentiment happened to be true, because his plane lost control while tested .The plane was falling down from a very high altitude.

History has many stories when presentiment born in a dream. President of USA Abraham Lincoln for several days before his death foresaw in dream a White House funerals .He asked who would be buried. And he get answer ”The President of the USA. Murderer killed him. “ The dream turned out to be true. And the mourning carriage was located, as in the Lincoln dream, in the West Hall[9].

Today, when I am writing these lines (10-20-2003) ,the media informed the world about Lady Dianna prophetic letter . She was killed in an automobile accident in August of 1997. In this letter, written 9 months before the death princess Dianna stated that she would be killed in auto accident as a result of defective brakes. She thought that her death would allow Prince Charles to get married again. The letter was kept by her former butler, Paul Barrel , whom Dianna trusted very much. He decided to pass this letter to journalists. Was this letter the result of logical analysis of situation, in which Lady Dianna lived? Or, her extrasensory feeling predicted her fate? It is difficult to answer. Perhaps, it works the combination of both factors.

Apparently, only selected people can predict their own death, but some feel presentiment, like dangerous fields around.

We may remember one-two cases when someone from acquaintance, having a ticket in hand, missed a train (or plane or ship), which later crushed. If even people don’t take seriously the signal of his unconscious mind or signals of the world information field, something compels them to do unordinary things.

Many old people immigrated to the USA from the former Soviet Union remember the plane accident in the seventies when whole soccer team from Uzbekistan were in the plane that crushed. Some members of the team reveal strange behavior before this flight. The team manager Talidzanov prepared a list of his creditors, which he never did before. Another player, Victor Churkin cleaned his apartment perfectly and this action was unordinary for him. Some players and coaches missed the flight for different reasons.

The American mathematician, B.Coks, decided to analyze statistically this phenomenon. He researched the numbers of passengers involved in accidents of railway trains. He find out that each time while an accident occur, the number of passengers was lower than average. And the probability of accidental variation of passenger’s quantity was one percent.

Doctor Morton Liberman (USA) researched psychological symptoms of approaching death. He investigated a group of men and women between 65 and 91 years old . In a year after his research half of these people passed away. Among these forty sensed approaching death (on a sub consciousness level) turned out to be with 34 men and women. Sometimes patients themselves told doctor about having a death premonition:” I am not going to live even a year “ –they said. They turned out to be true. Liberman guessed that to get a feeling of approaching death a person should have to do a simple self-analysis. He is saying that knowledge of near death exists on a sub consciousness level. It is necessary only to pull out from there this knowledge from there.

Premonitions related to death of other people.

I wrote about the prediction, which came true with a minute accuracy .Wolf Messing predicted accurately the date of death of his wife Anna Michailovna.

Researchers from the USA Charles Fiore and Alan Lindsborg believe that people with extrasensory perceptions are very sensible to changes manifested by death . They reminded the biography of extra sensor Alexs Tany named “Beyond coincidence “. He predicted deaths of absolutely healthy people for weeks or months based on reading the aura colors. For instance, he advised a young woman from Grey destroy a planned marriage with a man because he almost entirely lacked aura.

“I was not able to tell her -wrote Tany ,that her fiancé is on the eve of death.” Several weeks later this woman left a message on Tany’s phone” You said recently that you don’t see a future for me with this man. He was found dead yesterday next to the bed .He died from a heart attack.

Sincerely Yours Florence Wilson.”[9]

Charles Fiore and Alan Lindsborg bring many other events regarding predictions of death. The housewife, Linda Wilson, was invited to her neighbors for Christmas dinner. When she entered the neighbor’s house she smelled some strange smell. “I felt smell of death –she is telling. I was feeling that cold air is coming through my nostrils like I am outside in a very frosty day.” She hated this smell, which over cover others good smells. The husband of neighbor’s, who invited Linda for dinner, had Parkinson disease.

However, none of the physicians expected his death because the illness itself is not deadly. Linda stared at the man the whole evening.” This was crazy, but I was certain that he would die soon. He ate a lot , but as soon as I looked at him ,I was trembling . Nothing like this happened to me before. In a week , Peter got pneumonia and passed away in five days. Does approaching death smell?”-says Linda.

One famous extrasensory man was telling that he saw death, standing on one of upper floor of skyscraper. He was awaiting an elevator. When the elevator arrived he was frightened. All four passengers of elevator don’t have aura. Another man entered the elevator and immediately his aura disappeared.” This is sign of death “-continued the teller –“I would like to tell them to get out and wait for another elevator. However , I knew that nobody would listen to me. “ The elevator door closed and the cabin felled down 22 floors. All 5 persons were killed. For some unexplained reasons ,an emergency brake did not operate .

There was a four-floor old building In the Saint-Peterburg (Russia) at the corner of Admiralteisky and Gorochovoi Street. This building was built in the 18th

century. The first owner of this building was the President of a medical school Baron Fitingof. He was a great physician and his hobby was mysticism and magic .He had a big library dedicated to these subjects. His daughter Julia Krudener (her husband name) became famous for her amazing ability to foresee future. She gave accurate prophecy to Emperor Alexander 1st.

But the most surprising prophecy was her story about the fate of her own house, located on Gorokhovaya 2[9].

Once, she was in state of trance and saw that on the second floor in her child’s room, where she was raised , blood streams through the walls. She goes down in horror to the first floor and again she sees pools of blood over there. She wrote that she suddenly felt how after 100 years Russia will be seized with horror bigger than happened during French revolution at the end of 18th century. She wrote that she saw rivers of blood and that billions of people would be prosecuted. And all this will start from her house on Gorokhovaya 2.

These predictions, as well as others, were published in years 1813 and 1816.

After October 1917, a Russian Emergency Committee occupied this house. Felix Dzerzinsky headed this horrible organization, which started the so called, red terror. The prophecy of Julia Krugener comes true: the house became place for interrogations, tortures and executions.

Sometimes, writers and poets became forecasters.

Poet Andre Belii wrote that he will die from Sun Arrows.

He died from result of Sun shock. Poet Nikolai Gumilev predicted his death in a verse. He was executed in year 1921. But writers sometimes predict death of many peoples, mostly in catastrophic accidents.

Edgar Po in the novella about Arthur Gordon Pim adventures tells about shipwrecking of four people wandering on a sea without food and water. Finally, three of them became cannibals, and killed and ate the fourth one .The name of this man was Richard Parker. 46 years later the writer fantasia became real thing. The ship Magnonett was wrecked. Four people on boat wandered many days on at see. This wandering brought killing and eating one of them. The killed person name is Richard Parker.

But the most amazing example of the writer premonition-novella Morgan Robertson “Futile” published in 1898. Author describes shipwrecking of big transatlantic ship “Titan” as a result of collision with iceberg. Interesting, that almost all details of novella (time of collision, ship technical data, number of passengers etc) coincide with the real events that happened 14 years after publishing Robertson’s book.

Mention above researcher Lindsborg states that there are facts regarding some animal’s abilities to feel death. Rosali Abryu, who was raising chimpanzees in Zoo told about death of female from her group. “ At the same moment, when this female was dying in closed premises, her male, who was in park began loud screaming. He cried and cried. His lower lip hanged down as if he saw something, which is inaccessible to us. His cry was absolutely different to one I heard before. The blood was getting colder from his cry.”

How do vultures find out there are dying animals? We know that hyenas and jackals come to these places, being attracted with smells and sounds. “ But vultures, it seems, are taking some another signal ‘-says biologist Lila Watson. ”They detected even hidden corpses with unbelievable accuracy. Vultures have great vision that is determined by the arrangement of retina. This is helping them to discover even tiny remote move. As soon as one vulture discovers food, the others immediately fly together. However, sometimes this factor does not explain their appearance. I saw vultures, which are flying in darkness and patiently sitting around of wounded antelope awaiting her death. There were no other vultures around to bring their attention. “ He and some others scientists believe that dying animal may send powerful signal, if it exposed to sudden fierce attack.

Chapter 4

THE INTERMEDIATE RESULTS

The contents of previous chapters show us that science is not able to explain many events, which explanation lies beyond, so called, common sense. However, the existence of these events tells us, that only part of objective reality is sensed by our senses.

Some kind of world or some unknown laws of nature existed beyond visible reality. Therefore, going back to the beginning of this essay, I can say that materialistic philosophy is not true in everything. It may be true in explanation of some events, but false in others.

In the following chapters, I am going to speak briefly about modern scientific theories, which I consider very important or promising in our understanding of the universe. These chapters may look independent and isolated for a reader, but this impression is not true. I hope that a reader will feel a thread that tied together all sections of the essay.

BEYOND THE THREE DIMENSIONS

We live in four dimensional world-3 space dimensions and one time dimension. In our ordinary life we refer to these dimensions all the time. For instance, you are supposed to meet your friend somewhere. You tell him:” I am going to wait for you in the building at the North West corner of State Street and Monroe Street on the second floor restaurant. I will wait for you today at 7 p.m. “ You specified 3 coordinates of space and one coordinate of time. By this way you identified a spot in space-time coordinates, where you definitely meet your friend, of course, if your friend doesn’t change his mind.

We can show graphically only 3 coordinates, not 4 of those. Therefore, to simplify graphic presentation let us show only two coordinates: space and time S and T.

4 1 2 3

T

S

Fig 2

The lines 1,2,3,4 on Fig 2 are called World Lines[13]. We all moving through space and time starting from our birth at some point of space and time and through life until death will meet us at another point of space and time. Everyone has his own World Line. Earth, Moon, planets and Sun as well as all bodies in the Universe may be shown on a space-time diagram.

Let us assume that line 1 is a World Line of individual A. Vertical line means that this individual from his birth and through whole his life is sitting on a couch: he is not moving through space, he is moving only through time. Lines 2 and 3 show World Lines of persons, who during their lifetimes are moving in space and time. These lines present normal people traveling through life in space-time coordinates.

Line 4 presents a hypothetical case. If person A at some point of his life will travel in space with speed of light (300,000 km/sec), It means that he will be moving simultaneously with light and time will stop for him. The line 4 is presenting, of course, theoretical meaning because speed of light cannot be achieved by technical means.

Are there higher than 4 dimensions in space-time? This is possible. But people cannot feel or experience higher dimension because we are born and live in 4 dimensional World. However we can say something about higher dimensions. To understand this point, let us consider an example.

Suppose we are in Movie Theater. We are watching a long movie about life of personages on the flat screen. We saw how they are born, grow up, married, how they give birth to their children, aging as well as dying. We see their life on the flat two-dimensional screen. And now let us assume that movie personages on the screen posses minds, that they able to think and communicate to each other’s. Of course, their minds and thoughts and communication do not escape two dimensions because they are born in this reality and know nothing about third dimension. Nevertheless, it may happen that among these movie personalities, a person with extraordinary abilities is born. This person has no idea where his abilities come from. But his sub-consciousness is traveling somehow into the third dimension. And therefore, looking to the future movie cadres on the film he or she can see future events for movie personages. When this person will be in extrasensory state of consciousness, the other two-dimensional beings will learn their future. So, he or she is for these beings a two-dimensional Messing.

Another example also gives an idea how it is possible to feel extra dimension. Suppose, that two-dimensional beings are living on surface of quiet lake. They look like leaves of water lily. They know nothing, except flat-water surface. But suddenly a heavy rain starts. The two-dimensional beings see emerge and disappears ripples on the water. They don’t understand where these ripples come from. The smartest of them may come to the conclusion that reason of for the ripples is inside a third dimension.

There is an interesting question regarding Time dimension.

Does it possible for a person travel through Time as we travel in Space dimensions?

Einstein began thinking about the nature of time and its relation to the speed of light while still a teenager. He imagined that if,starting at noon, he flew away from the big clock in the town square at the speed of light and looked back at it. The clock would appear to stop, because he was flying along with the light coming from the clock showing it still at noon.We can continue this thought experiment. If I travel with the speed equal 3/4 C (speed of light) , I will experience time slowness .Comparing to person living on Earth time T,my time as traveller will run slower ,approximately 0.66 T. So,I will age slower than people on the Earth.When I will return to Earth after 10 years, I will age only for 6.6 years. But what if I want to visit Earth 1,000 years from now? All I have to do is get in a spaceship ,go to a star a bit less than 500 light-years away (light-year –distance which is covered by light for 1 Earth year). Return reaching the star,travelling both ways at 99.995 persent of the speed of light. When I come back, Earth will be 1,000 years older,but I will be only 10 years older.Such speed is possible- in the largest particle accelerators protons are brought to speeds higher than this.So if we can accelerate protons to greater than 99.995 percent of the speed of light (186,000 miles/second),we can also send off an astronavt with the same speed.It is just a matter of cost.Of course,besides cost,a lot of technical problem must be overcome for travels into future.But in principle,such travel is possible and not contradict any physical law. We know now,that we under certain conditions may appear again on the Earth in the Future during our lifetime,thousands years from now,when many generations of our descendants on Earth would have passed away.It means that in principle the speed of moving through the time into Future may be different . This is similar to space travel along the space axis .

What about Time travel to the Past? Is it possible ?What modern physics say about this?

Time travel to the Past

The Einstein equations of the General Relativity Theory make admissable solutions with negative T,which means that travel back in time may be possible.(In Isaac Newton’s universe time travel was inconceivable.) Today the subject of time travel has jumped from the pages of science fiction to the pages of physics journals as physicists explore under what condinitions it might be allowed by physical laws and even if it holds the key to how the universe began.

The idea of time travel gained prominence through Well’s wonderful novel.Most interesting is his treatment of time as a fourth dimension,which anticipates Einstein’s use of the concept ten years later.The Time Traveler invented time machine and brought his vechicle in the year 802,701. What does he find? The human race has split into two species:one,brutish and mean ,living below ground-the Morlocks,the other ,childlike and gentle,living above ground-the Eloi.Among the aboveground dwellers he find a lovely young woman named Weena,whom he befriends.He discovers,to his horror,that the troglodytes,living below breed and harvest the gentle people above like cattle –to eat . After many adventures the Time Traveller finally returned to his own time and to his friends.As a proof of his experience in the future,he produces a couple of flowers Weena had given him,of type unknown to his friends. After talking to his friends the Time Traveler departs on his machne and never returns.Did he return to future or go instead to some prehistoric realm?

Well’s book interpreted time as a fourth dimension.Einstein would use this idea in his 1905 theory of special relativity.Einstein’s work,expanded by his mathematics professor Hermann Minkowski,shows that time can be treated mathematically as a fourth dimension. Locating an event in universe requires four coordinates.

The picture on fig 3 shows a space-time diagram of the Earth going around the Sun. This figure uses perspective to try to show two spatial dimensions and the time axis on a two-dimensional sheet of paper, but usually we will just show one spatial axis and avoid perspective.

The line representing the position of the Earth as a function of time is called a World Line. Vertical dimension represents the dimension of time. Up is toward the future. Down is toward the past. The distance from the Earth to the Sun is 8 Light-Minutes, which means distance, covered with light for 8 minutes. Remember, the speed of light is 300,000 kilometers per second.

Apparently a World Line can be drawn in space-time coordinates for each human being .You have world line too. Your world line starts with your birth, snakes through space and forward in time threading through all the events of your life, and ends at your death.

A time traveler, who visits the past, is just someone whose world line somehow loops back in time, where it could even intersect itself

(Fig.4) This would allow the time traveler to shake hands with himself (!). The older man could meet up with his younger self and say,” Hi, I am your future self! I traveled back in time to say hello! “(Fig 4 ).the surprised younger man would reply , “Really?”. He would then continue his life, becoming old and eventually looping back to that some event –where he would recognize his younger self ,and say “Hi I am your future self. I have traveled back in time to say hello.”

Grandmother paradox

The grandmother or grandfather paradox is widely discussed in any book ,related to time travel, no matter ,is it fantastic or scientific publication. What if as an old man , the time traveler refuses to say hello and instead simply kills his grandmother or grandfather? Time travel to the past suggests such a paradox. The problem is obvious :if you killed your grandmother ,then you mother would have never been born ,and you would never have been born. If you were never born ,you could never go back in time , and so you could not kill your grandmother. This conundrum known as Grandmother Paradox is often thought sufficiently potent to rule out time travel to the past. There are several theories pretend to solve this Grandmother Paradox. However, at this stage of our research we are considering only one approach to solution. Time traveler doesn’t change the past because they were always part of it. The universe we observe is four-dimensional, with world lines snaking through it. If some of these world lines can bend back and cross through the same event twice, then so be it. The time traveler can then shake hands with an earlier version of himself .The solution has to be self-consistent, however . This principle of self-consistency has been advanced by physicists Igor Novikov of the University of Copenhagen, Kim Thorne of Caltech and their collaborators. In this case, the time traveler may have tea with his grandmother, when she is a young girl , but he can not kill her ,or he would not have been born ,and we already know he was. If you witness a previous event, it must play out just as before. Think of rewatching the classic movie Casablanca. You know how is going to turn out .No matter, how many times you see it , Ingrid Bergman always gets on that plane .The time traveler’s view of a scene would be similar .He might know from studying history how it is going to turn out ,but he would be unable to change it . If he went back in time and booked passage on the Titanic , he would not be able to convince the captain that the icebergs were dangerous .Why ? Because we know already what happened, and it cannot be changed .If any time travelers were aboard, they certainly failed to get captain to stop. And the names of those time travelers would have to be on the list of passengers you can read today.

Self-consistency is the conservative possibility :you can visit the past,but you can not change it . Each time traveler finds it is impossible to change the past she remembers. But there is an another view. We will consider this another view later in another essay about parallel Universes.

To conclude the theme of Time travel I bring the e-mail exchange between me and physic professor at the Adelaida University Paul Davies , who is author of some popular books regarding this problem. Here it is:

Dear Yury,

Yes, the past and future exist. The division of time into three

categories, past, present and future, is just a human illusion, and has

no connection with the physics of time. Einstein stated this explicitly.

You will find more about time travel in my book "How to Build a Time

Machine" published by Penguin in 2001.

Dear sir:

I red your book "About time"with great interest.

However,I cannot understand your logic regarding

travel into Past.

You use "grandfather paradox" to prove that travel to

the Past may change fate of traveler.

Regardless to this paradox, does Past exist somewhere

in space-time continuum?

Otherwise ,no sense at all to

talk about travel to the Past because it is not exist in

the Earth's frame of reference.

The Present disappeared completely as it became Past.

I am very interested to hear from you at your earliest

convenience.

Again ,thank you for your very interesting popular books.

Sincerely ,Yury

The Past and Future are located somewhere in Timescape. We don’t know if it is in another dimension or in another universe. However, we do know that some extraordinary people like Wolf Messing and others are able to penetrate unknown with power of the Mind and inform us about the Future or the Past.

There is another way to understand the presence of higher dimensions. This is Mathematical way. Let us consider in more details how mathematic describes laws of nature.

There is another way to understand the presence of higher dimensions. This is Mathematical way. Let us consider in more details how mathematic describes laws of nature.

IS GOD A MATHEMATICIAN?

Why are laws of nature described very well by mathematical equations? Are mathematic simply invented by people’s numbers and sets of rules? Or are mathematical structures located somewhere in the Universe or beyond the Universe, as convince some famous scientists, in, so called, Mindset?[11]

There are two diametrically opposed paradigms for understanding the correspondence between mathematic and physic’s that goes as far back as Plato and Aristotle. According to Aristotelian views, physical reality is fundamental and mathematical language is merely a useful approximation. According to Plato, the mathematical structure is the true reality and observers perceive it imperfectly.

As children, long before we had even heard of mathematics, we were all indoctrinated with the Aristotelian paradigm. The Platonic view is an acquired taste. Modern theoretical physicists tend to be Platonists, suspecting that mathematics describes the universe so well because the universe is inherently mathematical. Then all of physics is ultimately a mathematics problem. A mathematical structure is an abstract, immutable entity existing outside of space and time.

The Platonic paradigm raises the question of why the universe is the way it is. To an Aristotelian, this is a meaningless question: the universe just is. But Platonist cannot help but wonder why it could not have been different. If the universe is inherently mathematical, then why only one of the many mathematical structures singled out to describe a universe? We will consider this point later.

For centuries, developing the central point of proving any new science theory was an experiment.

Galileo experienced in the 17th century with falling bodies (legend has it, by dropping weights from the leaning tower of Pisa).He proved that all falling bodies fall equally fast, if air resistance is negligible. This way he refutes the previous popular theory due to Aristotle that heavy bodies fall faster than light bodies.

In the late 1880s,the American Albert Michelson ,assisted by Edward Morley measured the speed of Earth through space using light beams .At that time it was widely accepted in scientific community, that space is filled with some substance, called ether and that Earth is moving through this substance. Michelson and Morley proved that this is not the case. Experiment failed to reveal any evidence of ether. Now we know that Earth circles the Sun at about one hundred thousand kilometers per hour.

Thousands experiments advanced science to modern state.

Now, the physical science penetrates deeper and deeper in mysteries of surrounded us world.

At some point we see, that further advance that experimental physic is delayed or completely stopped at some directions.

The reasons are due to tremendous energy necessary for further penetration in deepness of matter. And, of course, enormous cost of experiments, which even very rich countries cannot afford.

Therefore, modern physics is heavily involved in purely mathematical research of nature.

This approach already brought bright achievements.

Any scientific physics theory must be formulated in mathematical form in order to be considered, disputed and verified by the scientific world. Einstein developed equations of general relativity. He stated that mass and energy cause space-time to curve .It took him 8 years of hard work to derive the equations governing this. He had to learn the geometry of curved dimensional spaces. Einstein’s theory resulted in some important predictions, like bend of light beam, when traveling near the Sun. This effect was experimentally confirmed. Also, Einstein’s theory explained a well known peculiarity observed in the orbit of Mercury long famous for its disagreement with Newton’s theory of gravity.

The famous English scientist Maxwell developed in the seventies of the 19th century a set of four equations governing electromagnetism. He found out that an electromagnetic wave, a ripple of electric and magnetic fields, traveling through empty space with a velocity of light. The velocity of light was measured by that time by astronomers .It is approximately 300,000 kilometers per second.

But, the real astonishment is the fantastic abilities of some mathematical expressions to pave the way for discovering unknown before particles or laws of nature. The possibility of completely new particle’s of matter emerged with the epoch-making mathematical investigations of Paul Dirac in 1930.He combined the theories of quantum mechanics and special relativity. The resulting Dirac equation, which is still widely used today, was able to explain mysterious magnetic and spin properties of the electron.

Dirac’s equation did, however, have one puzzling aspect. Its solutions correctly described the behavior of ordinary electrons, but for every such solution there existed another associated solution, which did not appear to correspond to anything in the known universe. With some imagination it was possible to work out what these unknown particles would be like .In mass and spin, they would be identical to ordinary electrons, but whereas all electrons carry negative electric charge, the new mystery particles would have positive charge. Other properties, such as their spin would also be reversed, making the new particles a sort of mirror image of electron.

This anti-particle, positron, was detected in 1932 and all particles are known to have anti-particles. The discovery was triumph of mathematician Dirac[12]. As stated by another physicist and mathematician, Werner Heisenberg: “The equations know better than we are” .

There is a branch of physics called quantum electrodynamics, which tries to merge the theory of special relativity with concepts of the electromagnetic force and its interaction with matter. A physicist from Cornell University ,Toichiro Kinoshita ,over the last 30 years painstakingly used quantum electrodynamics to calculate certain detailed properties of electrons. Kinoshita’s calculations fill thousands of pages and have needed the most powerful computers in the world to complete. The effort has been well worth it. The calculations yield predictions about electrons that have been experimentally verified to an accuracy of better than one part in a billion.

This is an absolutely astonishing agreement between abstract theoretical calculation and the real world. Through quantum electrodynamics , physicists have been able to solidify the role of photons as the smallest possible bundles of light and to reveal their interactions with electrically charged particles such as electrons , in mathematically complete, predictive and convincing framework.

An amazing example of new research in physics is the attempt to develop so called “unified theory”, which combines Einsteins general relativity theory and quantum physics. The best candidate for this unified theory is string theory. I mention this theory only to demonstrate that the origins of string theory dates back to 1968,when two young physicists at the nuclear laboratory at Geneva Veneziano and Suzuki were independently flipping through a math book and stumbled across the Euler Beta function. This 18-century mathematical expression, discovered by Leonard Euler, strangely seemed to describe the subatomic world. They were astonished that this abstract mathematical formula seemed to describe the collision of two meson particles at enormous energies. In other words, the string theory was discovered accidentally, using pure math.

As written Paul Davies, the Professor of mathematical physics at the University of Adelaide in Australia, there are two broadly opposed schools of thought concerning the essence of mathematics. The first of these holds that mathematics is purely a human invention, the second that it has an independent existence. The second school is known as Platonism. Plato, the great philosopher of old Greece, had a dualistic vision of reality. On one hand stood the physical world, created by Demiurge. This world is fleeting and impermanent. On the other stood the realm of Ideas, eternal and unchanging, acting as a sort of abstract template for the physical world. Mathematical objects are considered to belong to this Ideal realm. According to Platonists, we do not invent mathematics ,we discover it. Mathematical objects and rules enjoy independent existence: they transcend the physical reality that confronts our senses.

What do professional mathematicians think? It is often said that mathematicians are Platonists on weekdays and formalists at weekends. While actually working on mathematics, it is hard to resist the impression that one is actually engaged in the process of discovery, much as in an experimental science. The mathematical objects take on life of their own, and often display totally unexpected properties .On the other hand , the idea of transcendent realm of mathematical ideas seems mystical for mathematicians to admit, and, if challenged, they will usually claim that when engaging in mathematical research, they are only playing games with symbols and rules. Nevertheless, as stated by Paul Davies, some distinguished mathematicians have been confessed Platonists. One of these is the Oxford mathematician Roger Penrouse. He wrote:

“Mathematical truth is something that goes beyond mere formalism. It is though human thought is, instead being guided towards some eternal external truth- a truth which has a reality of its own, and which is revealed only partially to any one of us.” Taking as an example the system of complex numbers, Penrouse feels that it has “profound and timeless reality”.

Another example that has inspired Penrose to adopt Platonism is called “the Mandelbrot set” named after the IBM computer scientist Benoit Mandelbrot. The set is actually a geometrical form known as a “fractal”, which is closely related to the theory of chaos ,and provides another magnificent example of how a simple recursive operation can produce an object of fabulously rich diversity and complexity. The set is generated by successive applications of the rule, which means, pick a complex number Z and replace it with

2

Z + C, where C is certain fixed complex number. Then take a new number as a Z and make the same replacement , and so on ,again and again. The successive complex numbers can be plotted on a sheet of paper or a computer screen. As the rule is applied, each number represented as a dot. The collection of all dots forms the Mandelbrot set. This set has such an extraordinary complicated structure that is impossible to convey in words its awesome beauty. Penrose was delighted. He wrote:

“ The computer is being used in essentially the same way that the experimental physicist uses a piece of experimental apparatus to explore the structure of the physical world. The Mandelbrot set is not an invention of the human mind : it was discovery. Like Mount Everest, the Mandelbrot set is just there.”

Some samples of Maldenbrot set pictures are shown on Fig 5 and 6.

Fig 5

A mathematician, Rudy Rucker, thinks of mathematical objects as occupying a sort of mental space,which he calls the ”Mindscape” just as physical objects occupy a physical space. “A person who does mathematical research,” he

Fig 6

writes,” is explorers of the Mindscape in much the same way that Armstrong, Livingston or Cousteau are explorers of the physical features of our Universe.

John Barrow also cites the phenomenon of independent discovery in mathematics as evidence for “some objective element” that is independent of the psyche of the investigator.

Penrose wrote: “I imagine that whenever the mind perceives a mathematical idea it makes contact with Plato’s world of mathematical concepts”[11]. Sometime this “breaking-through” is sudden and dramatic, and affords what is usually referred to as mathematical inspiration. The great mathematician Carl Gauss for years was trying to solve problems about whole numbers: “Like a sudden flash of lightning .the riddle happened to be solved. I myself cannot say what was the conducting thread which connected which I previously knew with what made my success possible.” A similar thing happened with another great mathematician, Henri Poincare , who had spent a lot of time fruitlessly tackling a problem concerning certain mathematical functions. One day Poincare set out on a excursion and went to board a bus. “At the moment when I put my foot on the step, the idea came to me ,without anything in my former thoughts seeming to pave the way for it.”-he reported. When he returned from the trip he was able to prove the result readily, at his leisure.

Many physicists share the Platonic vision of mathematics. For example, Heinrich Hertz, the first to produce and detect radio waves in the laboratory , once said : “One cannot escape the feeling that these mathematical formulas have an independent existence of their own and they are wiser than even their discoverers, that we get more out of them than we originally put into them.”

Paul Davies writes that he once asked the greatest physicist of 20th century Richard Feynman[11] , whether he thought of mathematics and ,by extensions, the laws of physics as having an independent existence. He replied:” The problem of existence is a very interesting and difficult one. If you do mathematics, which is simply working out the consequences of assumptions, you discover for instance a curious thing if you add the cubes of integers. One cubed is one, two cubed is two times two times two, that’s 8, and three cubed is three times three times three, that is 27. If you add the cubes of these,(let stop here) 1+8+27 = 36. And that is the square of another number, 6, and that number is the sum of those same integers 1+2+3. Now, that fact , which I told you about, might not have been known to you. When you discover these things, you get the feeling that they were true before you found them. So, you get the idea that somehow they existed somewhere. In the case of physics, we have double trouble. We come upon these mathematical interrelationships but they apply to the universe. So the problem of there where they are doubly confusing. Those are philosophical questions that I don’t know how to answer”

The idea that there may be more dimensions than the familiar ones of length, breadth, height and time received a confirmation in a new paper published in Physical Review Letters by Andreas Karch of the university of Washington and Lisa Randall of Harvard University.

They assume that, initially, the Universe was filled with equal numbers of branes and anti-branes (the antimatter equivalent of a brane). These branes and anti-branes could take any number or up to ten different dimensions. Dr.Karch and Dr. Randall then demonstrated, mathematically, that a universe filled with equal numbers of branes and anti-branes will naturally come to be dominated by 3-branes and 7-branes because these are the least likely to run into their anti-brane counterparts and thus be annihilated.

In this version, the space inhabited by humans is a three-dimensional “surface” embedded in the higher dimensional landscape. The particles of which people are composed ,and the non-gravitational forces acting on them ,are strictly confined to this surface-called a brane (short for membrane) and, as such have no direct knowledge of the higher dimensional space around them. Only gravity is free to pervade all parts of universe,which is one of the reasons why it obeys a different set of rules from the other forces.

This result is interesting for two reason. It is the first piece of work to show that branes alone can explain the existence of hidden dimensions. They do not have to be rolled up to be in accessible. It is also the first to suggest an underlying preference in the laws of physics for certain sorts of universe. Other realities, where three or seven-dimensions, could be hidden elsewhere in the landscape. And life in seven-dimensional space would look very different from life on Earth if, indeed, it exist at all. That is because the force of gravity would diminish far more quickly with distance than it does in this world. As a result, seven-dimensional space could not have planets in stable orbits around stars. [18]

Going back to extrasensory phenomena’s some of those were described above, I hope that some day these events would obtain

mathematical explanation.

These phenomena were so elusive that generally have been categorized outside the science. However, in the next chapter I

am going to describe so called the holographic theory of Universe.

This scientific theory helps explain virtually all-paranormal and mystical experiences.

Chapter 5

THE HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE [14]

In 1982 a remarkable event took place. At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century. You did not hear about it on the evening news. In fact, unless you are in the habit of reading scientific journals you probably have never even heard Aspect's name, though there are some who believe his discovery may change the face of science.

Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn't matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing.

The problem with this feat is that it violates Einstein's long-held tenet that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light. Since traveling faster than the speed of light is tantamount to breaking the time barrier, this daunting prospect has caused some physicists to try to come up with elaborate ways to explain away Aspect's findings. But it has inspired others to offer even more radical explanations.

University of London physicist David Bohm , for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram. To understand why Bohm makes this startling assertion, one must first understand a little about holograms.

A hologram is a three- dimensional photograph made with the aid of a laser. To make a hologram, the object to be photographed is first bathed in the light of a laser beam. Then a second laser beam is bounced off the reflected light of the first and the resulting interference pattern (the area where the two laser beams commingle) is captured on film. When the film is developed, it looks like a meaningless swirl of light and dark lines. But as soon as the developed film is illuminated by another laser beam, a three-dimensional image of the original object appears.

(The supplement to this essay includes the details of the holographic process description).

The three-dimensionality of such images is not the only remarkable characteristic of holograms. If a hologram of a rose is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will still be found to contain the entire image of the rose. Indeed, even if the halves are divided again, each snippet of film will always be found to contain a smaller but intact version of the original image. Unlike normal photographs, every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole. The "whole in every part" nature of a hologram provides us with an entirely new way of understanding organization and order.

For most of its history, Western science has labored under the bias that the best way to understand a physical phenomenon, whether a frog or an atom, is to dissect it and study its respective parts. A hologram teaches us that some things in the universe may not lend themselves to this approach. If we try to take apart something constructed holographically, we will not get the pieces of which it is made, we will only get smaller wholes. This insight suggested to Bohm another way of understanding Aspect's discovery. Bohm believes the reason subatomic particles are able to remain in contact with one another regardless of the distance separating them is not because they are sending some sort of mysterious signal back and forth, but because their separateness is an illusion. He argues that at some deeper level of reality such particles are not individual entities, but are actually extensions of the same fundamental something.

To enable people to better visualize what he means, Bohm offers the following illustration. Imagine an aquarium containing a fish. Imagine also that you are unable to see the aquarium directly and your knowledge about it and what it contains comes from two television cameras, one directed at the aquarium's front and the other directed at its side. As you stare at the two television monitors, you might assume that the fish on each of the screens are separate entities. After all, because the cameras are set at different angles, each of the images will be slightly different. But as you continue to watch the two fish, you will eventually become aware that there is a certain relationship between them. When one turns, the other also makes a slightly different but corresponding turn; when one faces the front, the other always faces toward the side. If you remain unaware of the full scope of the situation, you might even conclude that the fish must be instantaneously communicating with one another, but this is clearly not the case. This, says Bohm, is precisely what is going on between the subatomic particles in Aspect's experiment. (see Fig 7).

It is important to underline that Bohm believes subatomic particles are connected in the same way as the images of the fish on the two television monitors. Although particles such as electrons appear to be separate from one another, on a deeper level of reality they are actually just different aspects of a deeper cosmic unity.

Fig 7

According to Bohm, the apparent faster-than-light connection between subatomic particles is really telling us that there is a deeper level of reality we are not privy to, a more complex dimension beyond our own that is analogous to the aquarium. And, he adds, we view objects such as subatomic particles as separate from one another because we are seeing only a portion of their reality. Such particles are not separate "parts", but facets of a deeper and more underlying unity that is ultimately as holographic and indivisible as the previously mentioned rose. And since everything in physical reality is comprised of these particles, the universe is itself a projection, a hologram. In addition to its phantomlike nature, such a universe would possess other rather startling features.

If the apparent separateness of subatomic particles is illusory, it means that at a deeper level of reality all things in the universe are infinitely interconnected. The electrons in a carbon atom in the human brain are connected to the subatomic particles that comprise every salmon that swims, every heart that beats, and every star that shimmers in the sky. Everything interpenetrates everything, and although human nature may seek to categorize and pigeonhole and subdivide, the various phenomena of the universe, all apportionments are of necessity artificial and all of nature is ultimately a seamless web.

In a holographic universe, even time and space could no longer be viewed as fundamentals. Because concepts such as location break down in a universe in which nothing is truly separate from anything else, time and three-dimensional space, like the images of the fish on the TV monitors, would also have to be viewed as projections of this deeper order. At its deeper level reality is a sort of superhologram in which the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously. This suggests that given the proper tools it might even be possible to someday reach into the superholographic level of reality and pluck out scenes from the long-forgotten past. What else the superhologram contains is an open-ended question.

Allowing, for the sake of argument, that the superhologram is the matrix that has given birth to everything in our universe, at the very least it contains every subatomic particle that has been or will be-every configuration of matter and energy that is possible, from snowflakes to quasars, from blue whales to gamma rays. It must be seen as a sort of cosmic storehouse of "All That Is." Although Bohm concedes that we have no way of knowing what else might lie hidden in the superhologram, he does venture to say that we have no reason to assume it does not contain more. Or as he puts it, perhaps the superholographic level of reality is a "mere stage" beyond which lies "an infinity of further development". Bohm is not the only researcher who has found evidence that the universe is a hologram.

Working independently in the field of brain research, Standford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram has also become persuaded of the holographic nature of reality[8]. Pribram was drawn to the holographic model by the puzzle of how and where memories are stored in the brain. For decades numerous studies have shown that rather than being confined to a specific location, memories are dispersed throughout the brain. In a series of landmark experiments in the 1920s, brain scientist Karl Lashley found that no matter what portion of a rat's brain he removed he was unable to eradicate its memory of how to perform complex tasks it had learned prior to surgery. The only problem was that no one was able to come up with a mechanism that might explain this curious "whole in every part" nature of memory storage. Then in the 1960s Pribram encountered the concept of holography and realized he had found the explanation brain scientists had been looking for.

Pribram believes memories are encoded not in neurons, or small groupings of neurons, but in patterns of nerve impulses that crisscross the entire brain in the same way that patterns of laser light interference crisscross the entire area of a piece of film containing a holographic image. In other words, Pribram believes the brain itself is a hologram. Pribram's theory also explains how the human brain can store so many memories in so little space. It has been estimated that the human brain has the capacity to memorize something on the order of 10 billion bits of information during the average human lifetime (or roughly the same amount of information contained in five sets of the Encyclopaedia Britannica). Similarly, it has been discovered that in addition to their other capabilities, holograms possess an astounding capacity for information storage-simply by changing the angle at which the two lasers strike a piece of photographic film, it is possible to record many different images on the same surface.

It has been demonstrated that one cubic centimeter of film can hold as many as 10 billion bits of information. Our uncanny ability to quickly retrieve whatever information we need from the enormous store of our memories becomes more understandable if the brain functions according to holographic principles. If a friend asks you to tell him what comes to mind when he says the word "zebra", you do not have to clumsily sort back through some gigantic and cerebral alphabetic file to arrive at an answer. Instead, associations like "striped", "horselike", and "animal native to Africa" all pop into your head instantly. Indeed, one of the most amazing things about the human thinking process is that every piece of information seems instantly cross- correlated with every other piece of information-another feature intrinsic to the hologram. Because every portion of a hologram is infinitely interconnected with every other portion, it is perhaps nature's supreme example of a cross-correlated system. The storage of memory is not the only neurophysiological puzzle that becomes more tractable in light of Pribram's holographic model of the brain. Another is how the brain is able to translate the avalanche of frequencies it receives via the senses (light frequencies, sound frequencies, and so on) into the concrete world of our perceptions. Encoding and decoding frequencies is precisely what a hologram does best. Just as a hologram functions as a sort of lens, a translating device able to convert an apparently meaningless blur of frequencies into a coherent image, Pribram believes the brain also comprises a lens and uses holographic principles to mathematically convert the frequencies it receives through the senses into the inner world of our perceptions.

An impressive body of evidence suggests that the brain uses holographic principles to perform its operations. Pribram's theory, in fact, has gained increasing support among neurophysiologists. Argentinian-Italian researcher Hugo Zucarelli recently extended the holographic model into the world of acoustic phenomena. Puzzled by the fact that humans can locate the source of sounds without moving their heads, even if they only possess hearing in one ear, Zucarelli discovered that holographic principles can explain this ability. Zucarelli has also developed the technology of holophonic sound, a recording technique able to reproduce acoustic situations with an almost uncanny realism. Pribram's belief that our brains mathematically construct "hard" reality by relying on input from a frequency domain has also received a good deal of experimental support. It has been found that each of our senses is sensitive to a much broader range of frequencies than was previously suspected. Researchers have discovered, for instance, that our visual systems are sensitive to sound frequencies, that our sense of smell is in part dependent on what are now called "osmic frequencies", and that even the cells in our bodies are sensitive to a broad range of frequencies. Such findings suggest that it is only in the holographic domain of consciousness that such frequencies are sorted out and divided up into conventional perceptions. But the most mind-boggling aspect of Pribram's holographic model of the brain is what happens when it is put together with Bohm's theory. For if the concreteness of the world is but a secondary reality and what is "there" is actually a holographic blur of frequencies, and if the brain is also a hologram and only selects some of the frequencies out of this blur and mathematically transforms them into sensory perceptions, what becomes of objective reality? Put quite simply, it ceases to exist.

As the religions of the East have long upheld, the material world is Maya, an illusion, and although we may think we are physical beings moving through a physical world, this too is an illusion. We are really "receivers" floating through a kaleidoscopic sea of frequency, and what we extract from this sea and transmorm into physical reality is but one channel from many extracted out of the superhologram. This striking new picture of reality, the synthesis of Bohm and Pribram's views, has come to be called the holographic paradigm, and although many scientists have greeted it with skepticism, it has galvanized others. A small but growing group of researchers believe it may be the most accurate model of reality science has arrived at thus far. More than that, some believe it may solve some mysteries that have never before been explainable by science and even establish the paranormal as a part of nature. Numerous researchers, including Bohm and Pribram, have noted that many para-psychological phenomena become much more understandable in terms of the holographic paradigm.

In a universe in which individual brains are actually indivisible portions of the greater hologram and everything is infinitely interconnected, telepathy may merely be the accessing of the holographic level. It is obviously much easier to understand how information can travel from the mind of individual 'A' to that of individual 'B' at a far distance point and helps to understand a number of unsolved puzzles in psychology. In particular, Grof feels the holographic paradigm offers a model for understanding many of the baffling phenomena experienced by individuals during altered states of consciousness. In the 1950s, he conducting research into the beliefs of LSD as a psychotherapeutic tool. (Lysergic acid diethylamide, better known as LSD, is a chemical that alters a user's mood, thoughts or perceptions. For this reason, LSD is grouped into a class of drugs known as hallucinogens or psychedelics. These drugs can cause auditory, visual or somatosensory hallucinations, paranoia or dream-like states.)

Grof had one female patient who suddenly became convinced she had assumed the identity of a female of a species of prehistoric reptile. During the course of her hallucination, she not only gave a richly detailed description of what it felt like to be encapsuled in such a form, but noted that the portion of the male of the species's anatomy was a patch of colored scales on the side of its head. What was startling to Grof was that although the woman had no prior knowledge about such things, a conversation with a zoologist later confirmed that in certain species of reptiles colored areas on the head do indeed play an important role as triggers of sexual arousal.

The woman's experience was not unique. During the course of his research, Grof encountered examples of patients regressing and identifying with virtually every species on the evolutionary tree.

Moreover, he found that such experiences frequently contained obscure zoological details which turned out to be accurate. Regressions into the animal kingdom were not the only puzzling psychological phenomena Grof encountered. He also had patients who appeared to tap into some sort of collective or racial unconscious. Individuals with little or no education suddenly gave detailed descriptions of Zoroastrian funerary practices and scenes from Hindu mythology.

In fact, there did not seem to be any limit to what Grof’s LSD subjects could tap into. They displayed the ability to transcend space and time , and occasionally they related accurate precognitive information . Sometimes they even encountered nonhuman intelligences during their cerebral travels , discarnate beings ,spirit guides from *higher planes of consciousness * and other suprahuman entities . On occasion subjects also traveled to what appeared to be other universes and other levels of reality. In one particulary unnerving session a young man suffering from depression found himself in what to be another dimension . It had an eerie luminescence, and although he could not see anyone he sensed that it was crowded with discarnate beings. Suddenly he sensed a presence very close to him, and to his surprise it began to communicate with him telepathically. It asked him to please contact a couple who lived in the Moravian city of Kromeriz and let them know that their son Ladislav was well taken care and doing all right . It then gave him the couple’s name ,street address , and telephone number . The information meant nothing to either Grof or the young man and seemed totally unrelated to the young man’s problems and treatment . Still, Grof could not put it out of his mind . After some hesitation and with mixed feelings , I finally decided to do what certainly would have made me the target of my colleagues jokes ,had they found out- says Grof. I went to telephone , dialed the number in Kromeriz and asked if I could speak with Ladislav . To my astonishment ,the woman on the other side of the line started to cry. When she calmed down, she told me with a broken voice :* Our son is not with us any more; he passed away, we lost him three weeks ago. In the 1960s Grof was offered a position at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center and moved to the united States. The center was also doing controlled studies of the psychotherapeutic applications of LSD , and this allowed Grof to continue his research . In addition to examining the effects of repeated LSD sessions on individuals with various mental disorders ,the center also studied its effects on normal volunteers-doctors ,nurses ,painters ,musicians , philosophers , scientists , priests , and theologians . Again Grof found the same kind of phenomena occurring again and again . It was almost as if LSD provided the human consciousness with access to a kind of infinite subway system , a labyrinth of tunnels and byways that existed in the subterranean reaches of the unconscious ,and one that literally connected everything in the universe with everything else . After personally guiding over three thousands LSD sessions (each lasting at least five hours) and studying the records of more than two thousand sessions conducted by colleagues , Grof became unalterable convinced that something extraordinary was going on . *After years of conceptual struggle and confusion ,I have concluded that the data from LSD research indicate an urgent need for a drastic revision of the existing paradigms for psychology ,psychiatry , medicine ,and possible science in general * he states . *There is at present little doubt in my mind that our current understanding of the universe , of the nature of reality ,and particularly of human beings ,is superficial , incorrect and incomplete .

In other categories of experience, individuals gave persuasive accounts of out-of-body journeys, of precognitive glimpses of the future, of regressions into apparent past-life incarnations. In later research, Grof found the same range of phenomena manifested in therapy sessions which did not involve the use of drugs. Because the common element in such experiences appeared to be the transcending of an individual's consciousness beyond the usual boundaries of ego and/or limitations of space and time, Grof called such manifestations "transpersonal experiences", and in the late '60s he helped found a branch of psychology called "transpersonal psychology" devoted entirely to their study. Although Grof's newly founded Association of Transpersonal Psychology garnered a rapidly growing group of like-minded professionals and has become a respected branch of psychology, for years neither Grof or any of his colleagues were able to offer a mechanism for explaining the bizarre psychological phenomena they were witnessing. But that has changed with the advent of the holographic paradigm.

As Grof recently noted, if the mind is actually part of a continuum, a labyrinth that is connected not only to every other mind that exists or has existed, but to every atom, organism, and region in the vastness of space and time itself, the fact that it is able to occasionally make forays into the labyrinth and have transpersonal experiences no longer seems so strange. The holographic prardigm also has implications for so-called hard sciences like biology. Keith Floyd, a psychologist at Virginia Intermont College, has pointed out that if the concreteness of reality is but a holographic illusion, it would no longer be true to say the brain produces consciousness. Rather, it is consciousness that creates the appearance of the brain-as well as the body and everything else around us we interpret as physical. Such a turnabout in the way we view biological structures has caused researchers to point out that medicine and our understanding of the healing process could also be transformed by the holographic paradigm. If the apparent physical structure of the body is but a holographic projection of consciousness, it becomes clear that each of us is much more responsible for our health than current medical wisdom allows.

What we now view as miraculous remissions of disease may actually be due to changes in consciousness which in turn effect changes in the hologram of the body. Similarly, controversial new healing techniques such as visualization may work so well because in the holographic domain of thought images are ultimately as real as "reality". Even visions and experiences involving "non-ordinary" reality become explainable under the holographic paradigm. In his book "Gifts of Unknown Things," biologist Lyall Watson discribes his encounter with an Indonesian shaman woman who, by performing a ritual dance, was able to make an entire grove of trees instantly vanish into thin air. Watson relates that as he and another astonished onlooker continued to watch the woman, she caused the trees to reappear, then "click" off again and on again several times in succession.

Although current scientific understanding is incapable of explaining such events, experiences like this become more tenable if "hard" reality is only a holographic projection. Perhaps we agree on what is "there" or "not there" because what we call consensus reality is formulated and ratified at the level of the human unconscious at which all minds are infinitely interconnected. If this is true, it is the most profound implication of the holographic paradigm of all, for it means that experiences such as Watson's are not commonplace only because we have not programmed our minds with the beliefs that would make them so. In a holographic universe there are no limits to the extent to which we can alter the fabric of reality. What we perceive as reality is only a canvas waiting for us to draw upon it any picture we want. Anything is possible, from bending spoons with the power of the mind to the phantasmagoric events, which are no more or less miraculous than our ability to compute the reality we want when we are in our dreams.

Indeed, even our most fundamental notions about reality become suspect, for in a holographic universe, as Pribram has pointed out, even random events would have to be seen as based on holographic principles and therefore determined. Synchronicities or meaningful coincidences suddenly makes sense, and everything in reality would have to be seen as a metaphor, for even the most haphazard events would express some underlying symmetry. Whether Bohm and Pribram's holographic paradigm becomes accepted in science or dies an ignoble death remains to be seen, but it is safe to say that it has already had an influence on the thinking of many scientists. And even if it is found that the holographic model does not provide the best explanation for the instantaneous communications that seem to be passing back and forth between subatomic particles, at the very least, as noted by Basil Hiley, a physicist at Birbeck College in London, Aspect's findings "indicate that we must be prepared to consider radically new views of reality".

INFORMATION IN THE GOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE

In the August 2003 issue of “Scientific American” there is very interesting and important on our topic article. The author is Jacob D. Bekenstein , Professor of Theoretical Physics at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Professor Bekenstein is, according to his short biography “a leading contributor to the foundation of black hole thermodynamics and to other aspects of the connections between information and gravitation.”

Bekenstein points out that the Universe has three major components, not two as normally thought.The usual concept is that energy and mass make up the Universe. Bekenstein states that a third component; -information,-is critical. Mass and energy have structure and interact because they contain information. Information binds and provides the instructions that ultimately holds the Universe together. ”If we have learned anything from engineering, biology, and physics, it is that information is just as crucial an ingredient” as mass and energy.

Bekenstein summarizes his proposed model of the Universe,

…”Our Universe, which we perceive to have three spatial dimensions, might instead be written on a two-dimensional surface, like a hologram. Our everyday perception of the world as three-dimensional would then be either a profound illusion or merely one of two alternative ways of viewing reality. A grain of sand may not encompass our world, but a flat screen might.”

The important component of Bekenstein’s theory is that the major purpose for the physical universe is that it contains information, or knowledge. We know that some extrasensory people somehow may reach this level of information.

I recall that my friend and coworker, Kirill Tchemena,who was a very intelligent and bright person, presented a similar view on Universe in the 1980’s.

His philosophical notes were written with simple and easy to understand language .

I believe that for any individual, who might be reading this manuscript, would be interesting to familiarize himself with quotes from his notes.

Kirill Tchemena predicted the Bekenstein’s theory 20 years ago. A reader will find a tight connection between Kirill Tchemena notes and the main topic of my essay.

Chapter 6

DOES HIGHER POWER EXIST?

The physical world is a wonder-filled phenomenon of unity.[16]

The same laws that govern the ten thousand billion billions stars distributed among the hundred billion galaxies of our universe, that stretch over some 15 billion light years of space, also govern

chemical reactions within the 0.001-centimeter of a cell. From the

-5 26

10 meters of an organic cell to the 10 meters of the universe,

-26 30

from the mass of an atom 10 kilogram to the mass of the sun,10 kilograms, one set of laws exist. Why? Why the universe so intelligible and so consistent? Science alone cannot say. Perhaps, there is some metaphysical held within the physical field.

Throughout history, humans have dreamed of knowing the reason for the existence of the universe. Physicists know that our universe is perfectly tuned for life. We can mention several physical parameters from thousands of those, which represent exact value, needed for the emerging of life. If only one of those parameters slightly changes, the life on Earth would be impossible to live. Let number some of them:

1.The Earth is in the right position relative to the Sun. If the Earth would be too distant from the Sun, oceans would be frozen and the Earth would be similar to Mars. If the Earth would be too close to Sun, then the oceans would have boiled off and the Earth would be like Venus.

2.Our Moon is just the right size to stabilize Earth’s orbit. If the Moon were much smaller, even tiny perturbations in Earth’s spin would slowly accumulate over millions of years, causing Earth to wobble disastrously and creating drastic changes in the climate so as to make life impossible. Computer programs show that without a large Moon (about a third the size of Earth), Earth’s axis might have shifted by as much as 90 degrees over a period of many millions of years. This change of axis would create catastrophic changes in the weather, making life impossible.

3.Similarly, computer models of our solar system show that the presence of the planet Jupiter in our solar system is a good thing for life on Earth, because its immense gravity helps to fling asteroids into outer space .If Jupiter were much smaller and its gravity much weaker, then our solar system would be full of asteroids, making life on earth impossible, as asteroids plunged into our oceans and would destroy life. Hence, Jupiter, too, is just the right size.

4.Earth also exists within the Milky Way galaxy, about two-thirds of the way from the center. If the solar system were to close to the galactic center, the radiation field would be so intense that life would be impossible. If the solar system were to far away, there would not be enough higher elements to create the necessary elements of life.

Scientists can provide hundreds of examples where Earth lies within a myriad of special zones that in combination support the development of life. Did a life emerged as result of High Intelligence design or simply gradually develop from inorganic components? Let us consider this dilemma in more detail.

INTELLIGENT DESIGN OR DARWIN EVOLUTION THEORY?

The great scientist Charles Darwin in the 19th century, developed a theory of

evolution. Darwin’s theory of evolution demonstrated decisively that complex organization efficiently adapted to the environment could arise as a result of random mutations and natural selection. No designer is needed to produce a leg or wing. Such organs appear as a result of perfectly ordinary natural processes. At its heart , Darwin’s theory requires the existence of an ensemble, or a collection of similar individuals, upon which selection may act. Scientist Paul Davis in his book “The Mind of God” brings an example of the polar white bear surviving. Consider how polar bears may have come to blend so well with snow. Imagine a collection of brown bears hunting for food in snowy terrain. Their prey easily see them coming and beats a hasty retreat. The brown bears have hard time. Then, by some genetic accident a brown bear gives birth to a white bear. The white bear makes a good living because it can creep up on its prey without being noticed so easily. It lives longer then its brown competitors and produces more offspring. They too fare better, and produce still more white bears. Before long, the white bears are predominating, taking all the food, and driving the brown bears to extinction.

However, Darwin’s theory is silent about the life origin on the Earth.

It seems as absurd for me that the first living cell could emerge from inorganic materials.

I mentioned already Kirill Tchemena , who was my co-worker in the former Soviet Union. Since my immigration to the USA we started corresponding. Answering many of my questions in science and philosophy, he described in his letters unordinary and amazing views.

Here is his hypothesis about the origin of life. You see extracts from his letters below:

“Hypothesis of All Universe Biological field was born from the question: “ Is it possible that Life has been self-organized accidentally? Always in the 1970’s the answer became clear, that this couldn’t be possible. The most difficult part was to find an explanation why.

We need simply to look differently at this problem.

The problem is that negative answers contradict to materialistic viewpoint. But this answer satisfied the LOGIC, INFORMATION theory, GENETIC and PHILOSOPY,which is much more important.

Let us consider this question from these fourth points of view.

1.LOGICAL APPROACH.

Before Life appears on the Earth, the Earth represents dead matter. It means that living cells must be born from dead matter as a conscious act or as accidental act. Of course, the first possibility is out of question because living cell could not be created as conscious act from unconscious matter.

There is still the possibility of an accidental act.

But inspirational act of creation and programming the living cell, which works faultless for several billions years and not understood completely by modern human minds could not have been an accidental act. Besides that ,a possibility of an accidental act can be easily denied by the theory of probability because it is necessary that a many events needed for the living cell creation must have been occurred simultaneously. Otherwise, a living cell could not have been created.

It is easier to believe that a game of chess was created by bucket of clay accidentally, which means that the bucket of clay built a chess board with 64 squares, designed rules of game and recorded information for reproduction in millions years in the future.

Although a chess game with all possible combinations is a millions times simpler than a living cell. You are smiling.

2. INFORMATION APPROACH

We know that any albumen is a chain of amino acids. Its record

In a cell, called gene, is a chain of groups of mono-phosphates, so called triplets. This is the genetic code , which is uniform and universal for every living creature on Earth. This code is universal for one-cell bacteria and zebra, apple tree, bee on a flower or bird on the branch of tree.

Because there are only 4 mono-phosphates, the genetic code

3

allows to code 4 amino-acids (64). However, there are only 20 amino-acids. The other triplets duplicate those which are used in code or stay empty. It was proven that genetic code did not change for several billions years because its small change would be threatened with total catastrophe for all living things.

Materialistic science states that genetic code was created only for one-cell bacteria. If this were true, the genetic code would not have been to complicate from the beginning. It would be sufficient for this purpose to use binary code.

Perhaps, it was known from the beginning that billions years later a human being would appear.

But this suggestion assumes the existence of a Creator, who foresaw an entire way of life development from the beginning until the end.

However, materialism rejects this assumption.

3. Let us consider the same problem from the point of view of GENETICS.

The living cell is a complex form of chemical substances. Besides that, the living cell incorporates chemical energy. However, chemical reactions inside the cell are not ordinary chemical reactions. Each cell is programmed to create its own albumen, which is different from the other cells albumen.

This process is controlled through deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).

For the creation of albumen for specific cell in DNA spiral, only specific spot is being opened, in other words, its own line. However, the whole DNA spiral incorporates programs of albumen creation for all cells of an organism. Genetic knows this.

But , modern Genetics cannot answer the question of how the process of the albumen creation inside cell is controlled, in other words, we don’t know the “technology” of albumen creation .

We don’t know where a sequence of operation of this process is recorded. (“Know how” of living cell).

Therefore, answer to this question should relate to philosophy.

Since, Genetics is based on experiments , there are few experimental data on this subject.

4. Let us consider this question from a Philosophic point of view

Life in a philosophical context is a combination of Matter and Bio-field.

A biological field (bio-field) exists with a purpose to force a living cell to create cells similar to itself for growth and development of living organisms. Life is supposed to continue as long as possible.

(Each cell contains Ribonucleic acid (RNA) which is composed of long chains phosphate and sugar. One form is the carrier of genetic information from the DNA and it is important in the synthesis of albumen in the cell. Y.K.)

Therefore, if DNA is the library of cells , then Bio-field force molecules of Ribonucleic acid go to this library and make records on

a perforated tape. Nothing , except Bio-Field , control these records.

Life on Earth has been created in accordance with order of Bio-field and continues as long as conditions for Life are ongoing.

Bio-field breathes Life into dead matter similar to the Bible Creator, who breathe life in to Adam’s body from clay. However, vulgar materialism rejects this explanation.

MORE ABOUT BIO-FIELD

The theory of Bio-field is easy to understand from four answers to four questions:

The definition.

The Bio-field may be called a Life-field. All living things are created and work in accordance with the order of Bio-field. Bio-field has records of laws for each living cell: general rules of its life and death, rules of reproductions, rules of transferring genetic characteristics. In other words, Bio-field has records of laws, known as Mendel laws , Weinberg laws and others. Of course, these laws existed long time before appearances of these and other scientists. Bio-field, up to now is called “Nature”. We have sometimes the perception of “Nature” as “God” in a woman dress.

At the same time, Bio-field is nothing more than an electromagnetic field with recorded information.

2.Who creates Bio-field?

Bio-field could be created only by a Mega-Mind, in some place in the middle of universe, which may be called Center of Life.

Of course, the Mega-Mind is not a living entity, because this entity would be able to exist for several billions years.

It is impossible for the dead matter or the matter without mind to create the Bio-field.

We have to consider Immortal Energy.

It is possible to imagine a giant computer, which instead of a display and printer , includes Bio-field as an output, where all Life regulations are recorded.

This Bio-field permeates the whole universe.

3.When did Bio-field create Life on the Earth?

Life on Earth emerged 3 billions years ago, when the temperature of the World ocean was 70 degree centigrade. In other words, life emerged immediately after this condition was reached. Before that high temperature oceans prevented the emergence of life because albumen and amino-acids boiled over.

It appears that life was immediately born on any planet as

favorable conditions emerged. This point of view, which I share, is known as the hypothesis of scientist, F.Drake. This is one more argument in favor of the Bio-field theory. The Bio-field exists everywhere and permeates all planets , where life is awaits a time for emerging.

4.Other hypotheses regarding emerging Life on the Earth

If a Bio-field has existed on Earth from the beginning, so a process of life emerging doesn’t need any other hypothesis. For example, one theory states that one or several cells from a neighboring Galactic area traveled thousands of years inside of some meteorite and reached the Earth, where these cells found good conditions for reproduction. So, they awakened and started multiplication and some sort of seaweed was born. For justifications of this hypothesis a more fantastic hypothesis is needed to show how could a human being emerge from a seaweed. A more acceptable is theory that life on the Earth is delivered by aliens. In this case, the picture of life creation approaches the biblical version, which is not spread through millions years as required by hypothesis of Darwin.”

I would like to add few words to this outstanding letter.

Many scientists were very exited in the middle of 20th century. At that time

It seemed that the first living cell would be created artificially. When in 1953

Stanley Miller, then a graduate student at the University of Chicago , produced a few amino acids through purely random reactions among chemicals found naturally throughout the universe, the scientific community felt the problem of life origin had been solved. Far from it!

Subsequent experiments have failed to extend his results.

Attempting to get those amino acids to join into any sort of complex molecules has been only long study in failure. The emergence of the specialized complexity of life, even in its most simple forms, remains a mystery.

THE CONCLUSION

Of course, this philosophical essay doesn’t incorporate all phenomena, which are not explained by science. There are many interesting things beyond our consideration. For example,

reincarnations, out of body experience, and dreams are not even mentioned here simply because of the volume of information.

For many centuries science and religions did not intersect one another. Any religion based on Faith in God. But scientific theory needs experiments performed by different scientists. If the results of experiments are similar or identical, the validity of theory had been proven. The theory of holographic universe admits that human sub-conscience may be spread beyond mind and penetrated the biological Field of Universe. This is a very close approximation to a religious view that human spirit still lives after the death of physical body.

I personally do not posses some extrasensory abilities.

However, I clearly remember, that when I was 5-6 years old, I felt myself as the center of Universe. Therefore, I was convinced that any word or the action of mine must be written about somewhere in an Unreachable Book. Possibly I was thinking about the Book of Fate. Maybe my childish vague senses somehow felt the Universe Mental field.

My parents and relatives were atheists. They were convicted materialists and believed that God does not exist .I remember no conversations about God and death.

It seemed that the routine order of events will continue forever. Therefore, serious illnesses and death of close relative was a tremendous shock for members of my family. They never were mentally prepared for such a possibility. For example, when my aunt was dying from cancer and having only one conscience day left, my mother and my uncle recalled that my aunt had an account in the bank and no will at all. It was a significant sum of money per soviet scale, of course. They wrote a will in a hurry, but my aunt was in a very bad state, so her signature was unrecognizable. Although the doctor approved the signature, the bank at first didn’t accept it and it took a lot of time and nerves to solve this problem.

I thought then that a death is awaiting any person and we don’t know its time of arrival. Therefore you as well as your relatives should be somehow prepared to this inevitable event.

As I mentioned above, I do not believe in reincarnation. It is hard to me or simply impossible to imagine my self-conscience in a body of other person like a women or Muslim or homosexual.

However, I believe that my life will be repeated again. This other life is supposed to happen not on the Earth but on some planet similar or identical to Earth[17]. This planet may be located billions of light-years from the Earth in our Universe or in Parallel Universe,(I am planning to write about Parallel universes in another essay.) Over there, Time does not move with the same speed as here. Possibly, on this remote planet, Time is equal to our 18 century. I will be born again from the same parents at the same birthday, which is equivalent to January 18 1932, but in different chronology.

The ground to this belief is a success of quantum physics, which is based on the idea that all possible events, no matter. how fantastic or silly, might occur.

This, in turn lies at the heart of the inflationary universe theory. When the original big bang took place, there was a quantum transition to a new state in which the universe suddenly inflated by an enormous amount [19]. Our entire universe , it appears, may have sprung out of a highly unlikely quantum leap.

Therefore,one could in principle suddenly dissolve and rematerialize on the other side of brick wall or on the Mars. Of course ,the probability is so small that we would have to wait longer than lifetime of the universe.

But at subatomic level ,such probabilities are crucial for functioning of electronics, computers and lasers.

Electrons ,in fact, regularly dematerialize and find themselves rematerialized on the other side of walls inside the components of your PC and CD. Modern civilization would collapsed ,in fact, if electrons were not allowed to be in two places at the same time. What keeps two atoms locked in a stable molecule is the fact that electrons can simultaneously be in so many places at the same time that they form an electron “cloud” which binds the atoms together. Thus ,the reason why molecules are stable and does not disintegrate is that electrons can be many places at the same time.

But if electrons can exist in parallel states hovering between existence and nonexistence , then why can’t the universe. After all , at one point the universe was smaller than an electron . Once ,we introduce the possibility of applying the quantum principle to the universe ,we are forced to consider parallel universes.

(I am planning to write about parallel universes in another essay).

A reader may ask about my belief in God. To respond to this question, it is necessary to determine what we mean by God. I share a view with my friend Kirill Tchemena that God is the Highest Intellect, which determines beauty and harmony of Nature. However, I do not believe in a personal God, who participates in ordinary human activities. This Higher Intellect may be personified not like human beings but like a Mental energy field. This was also the Albert Einstein view. The best answer to this question will be given by future Einsteins.

The holographic theory of the Universe is finding support of some scientists. However, as any theory, it may be denied later and replaced with better theory. Nevertheless, I think that any theory, that explains eternal problems of humankind, like Life, Death and the meaning of our brief stay on the Earth, should be found at the juncture of Science and Religion. And, maybe, we find the answers after our Earth’s life.
