Science v The Chruch

being an intenet marketer means that most of the time my inbox is chocker full of email’s promoting the latest “must have” new course or product, much of which get deleted, but there’s a few people out there who’s email’s I look forward to receiving and will make a cup of tea and put my feet up to read, ’cause they’re just that good..

One such guy is Phil Gosling and I though I’d share his latest email:

Success Engineering revisited.

Suppose I tossed a coin ten times and it landed heads up every
time. Is the probability that the coin will land tails up on
the eleventh throw greater, less, or still 50-50?

Statistically, the more you throw the coin, the more the
scores should even out at 50% heads and 50% tails. So, we’ve
just had ten heads in a row, surely the chance of getting a
tail result has increased?

Not so, say the boffins. The coin has no memory. It does not
know the previous result, therefore the next throw must be
50-50, just as if nothing had happened.

This is perfect science. It is logical, and indisputable. It’s
also ‘not quite right’.

Instead of a coin, let’s use an electronic random number
generator (like ERNI – the Electronic Random Number Indicator
used to select Premium Bond winners.) These gadgets are far
more accurate than a coin.

In scientifically conducted tests, a team of experts in
meditation techniques managed to influence an e.r.n. generator.
They couldn’t make it produce a given number, but they did
influence its randomness. It became ‘less random.’ This test,
like all good science, is repeatable and confirmed as true.

There is an ongoing experiment taking place in which a series
of e.r.n. generators have been placed around the globe to see
if their ‘randomness’ can be influenced by world events. They
discovered that major world events can influence the
generators. The death of Princess Diana, and 9/11 caused a
change in the statistical randomness of the generated results
in all the machines. This was at odds of billions to one. It
seems that human emotion can affect statistics. Science finds
these results deeply unsettling. In days gone by, such tests
were often performed by ‘unqualified’ enthusiasts working in
the ‘unscientific’ field of ‘the paranormal’. But not now.

These tests are being conducted by rogue scientists. Rogue
doesn’t mean they are stupid, or weird. Many of these
scientists are brilliant in their fields, like Dr John Hagelin,
a Ph.D in Physics at Harvard, or Dr Fred Alan Wolf Ph.D,
Theoretical Physics UCLA. These guys are not quacks. They are
very serious geniuses who are in the forefront of correcting an
historic anomaly.

Back in Galileo’s time the established church and scientists
like Galileo were having a bit of a barny. They still are
today, but this time without the instruments of torture. Every
time a scientist disproved some church dogma, like the
earth-sun rotation, the church got all uppity and started
excommunicating and dismembering people left, right and centre.
So the scientists quite understandably backed off and created
‘The Clockwork Universe’ in which life, or the life-force, was
ignored. It was taken out of the equation, so to speak.

This made things simple. To calculate the gravitational forces
between objects was simply a function of the mass of those
objects and the distances between them. It didn’t matter a jot
if one, or any of these objects was alive. That had nothing to
do with it. The gravitational forces between Galileo, Pope Paul
V and a medieval toilet seat were the same irrespective of the
heat of the argument, or indeed the heat of the seat.

And for the next five hundred years the idea of a universe in
which life was only a side show to the physics held sway.

But what’s happening today is that eminent scientists,
particularly in the micro-world of nuclear physics, have no
longer any choice but to include life itself in the workings of
the cosmos, because if they don’t – the numbers don’t work. The
clockwork universe is dying on its feet. Indeed it’s looking as
though life itself is at the very core of science, beyond
string theory, beyond energy. In the beginning there was life.
‘Things’ came later.

This is hugely exciting. If Bob Proctor, or Tony Robbins, or
yours truly, or any of a whole host of people tell you that you
can change your life around using the ‘law’ of attraction then
you largely have to take this on trust. There is no ‘law’ of
attraction, not in science. If there was, there’d be an
equation to go with it.

But there is a law. There is an equation. It’s many equations,
all so complex that only geniuses understand them. All the
numbers work. The experiments work.

When science had the door slammed on it by ancient church
dogma, it developed a dogma of its own. That dogma said that
things and objects do things as they do without the need for
life to be included. Everything must be proven in the most
rigorous of objective, repeatable tests, and if it doesn’t fit
into that framework then it is either wrong, or intellectually
sidelined. Things to do with science fitted in the box marked
science. Things to do with life, the life-force or the plain
weird, or anything that didn’t fit into the first box, were put
into a second box marked unscientific. Unscientific was quietly
redefined as ‘not to be believed’.

It’s still early days. The thumbscrews of the inquisition have
been subtly replaced by the torture of isolation and ridicule,
used by the scientists of the new inquisition to excommunicate
scientists who dare question their own sacred texts. You’re
still thrown out of the club if you speak too much heresy. But
it’s started. One swallow does not a summer make, but a dozen
or so swallows are braving the winter.

Science is changing. You can affect the toss of a coin. You
can affect the throw of a die. The coin does have a memory.
It’s using yours.

If you are observing anything, you – the observer – influences
that event. In the Olympic 100m sprint, the timekeeper sits
apart from the competitors and does not affect the outcome.
But in the Physics 100 nm sprint, the timekeeper sits in the
middle of the track, causing competitors to stumble or go around him.
He affects the outcome. Just thinking about things affects the outcome.
This is scientific fact.

All progress starts with mind, not things or systems. Your
future starts with changing the way you think. When you do
that, you affect what’s going on around you. At a psychological
level, your thinking affects your mood and that affects
others. Enthusiasm is catching.

But it doesn’t stop there. What you think about has an effect
on the fabric of nature itself. Circumstances and events are
created according to how often you think about them and the
degree of expectation. If you expect a bad day, you’ll get one
– on all levels, both psychologically and physically. If you
expect to double your income in the next twelve months, not
only will your mind come up with ways of doing it, not only
will you be psychologically set up to achieve it, but happy
events and circumstances will appear, almost spookily into your
life.

But don’t take my word for it, or Bob Proctor’s or anyone
else. Don’t take this on trust. Don’t take this just because
thousands of others have proved it in their own lives. This is
science, albeit the thinnest, cutting edge, but science
nevertheless.
