The following research demonstrates some evidence that time is limited to the physical realm and that there is no time in the greater reality follow. Your view of reality is unique and your own.

In Connections Through Time, Issue 3: April - June 1999, "Intuition Precognition - Information from the Future", the researchers knew that it has been clearly demonstrated that information about the future can be shared with the present.

 

They felt that independent confirmation studies were critical for demonstrating the reality of precognition.

The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) group conducted a series of studies of whether people can know about events before they happen.

"Their results confirm that... many of the phenomena that were referred to as "anomalies" are a normal part of the way the universe operates."

Why does the universe permit information to be retrieved from the future? Why not?

 

Scientific research has demonstrated that information about the future can be shared with the present... PEAR has duplicated the initial SRI Remote Viewing experiments including successful predictions of target sites before they were randomly chosen, i.e. precognition.

 

PEAR calls their work "Remote Perception" and they showed probabilities against chance ranging from 1 out of a million to 1 out of a trillion. Details are here.

 

An abstract of the precognitive work concludes that,

"Overall results are unlikely by chance to the order of 10E-10."

Their conclusion concerning replication, using their experimental database, follows from a paper entitled, Precognitive Remote Perception: Replication of Remote Viewing:

Thus, these databases, comprising one of the largest accumulations of relevant experiments performed under consistent and well controlled experimental protocols, have already provided robust evidence that the findings in the SRI/SAIC Remote Viewing experiments can be replicated in independent, but essentially similar designs.

Human consciousness (and the more subtle subconscious) has capabilities far greater than previously imagined by science. Science has now shown this capability and is very uncertain on how to proceed.

Helmut Schmidt designed a machine to test the existence of precognition.

 

The machine had four lamps of different colors, which were the "targets." Participants attempted to predict which lamp would light up next by pressing one of four buttons. The machine was designed so that the target displays were completely random. Shortly after pressing, one of the lamps would light up to indicate whether or not the participant had guessed correctly. Counters in the machine registered the number of attempts and number of correct hits.

Schmidt tested approximately 100 people. It was found that a few individuals were able to predict the target correctly a lot more often than would be expected by chance.

Schmidt designed a second experiment in which the participants had the option of either constantly predicting which lamp would light next (to obtain a high score), or to constantly choose a lamp that they thought wouldn’t light next (aiming for a low score). 20,000 trials were made in total. The number of successful predictions was 410 above what would be expected by chance, which is odds of greater than 10 to the power 10 against chance (Hansel, 1980).

Dr. Bierman studied precognition by having subjects involved in brain scan experiments. The subjects had their brains scanned while they were shown randomly mixed images, some emotionally stimulating (either violent or erotic), and others neutral. The result was that their brains were reacting to the pictures before they were being shown.

fMRI is a type of brain scan used to highlight activity of the brain cells that give rise to perceptions and emotions. It is often used to measure emotional reactions to specific stimuli. Where Bierman’s research differs from the conventional studies is that he is interested in emotional response before the participant is subjected to the stimulus.

Ten participants had their brains scanned while they were shown randomly mixed images, some emotionally stimulating (either violent or erotic), and others neutral.

 

The fMRI scans were then analyzed for a reaction of some kind. Bierman found that areas of the brain that responded to emotional stimuli reacted about 4 seconds before the image was presented - and that this reaction was greater when the image was emotionally stimulating. This phenomenon has appeared often in existing, published research.

One of the most influential books on the topic of time was Jeremy Rifkin’s Time Wars. In this book, first published in 1989, Rifkin drew a parallel between the way we treat the environment (as a resource to be manipulated and dominated) and the way we treat time (as a resource to be manipulated and dominated).

 

He championed the folks he calls time heretics, and counted in that group all sorts of people who challenge existing notions of time, including holistic health practitioners, organic farmers, home schoolers, slow foodies, simple living advocates, etc.

 

He described these folks as seeking a,

“more empathetic union with the rhythm of nature.”

Many of the problems that plague us have to do with our unswerving belief in the reality of artificial time.

  • Natural time glides from one phase to another gradually rather than having an abrupt edge, like the bell that rings at the end of a classroom hour. And natural time is cyclic. It circles through distinctly different phases, from bright to dark, from winter to summer, from high to low, and it always returns.
     

  • Artificial time is measured as if each unit was exactly the same. Each day occupies the same space on the calendar. Each hour on a weekly planner is allotted one line. This perpetuates the notion that time is a resource we can actually calculate and manage.

We’ve all experienced minutes that seem to stretch out for an hour and hours that flash by in a minute. Natural time has rhythm and flow but it’s not exact. The daffodils bloomed on March 1 this year but April 27 last year and March 3 the year before that.

The mechanism that controls the internal 24-hour clock of all forms of life from human cells to algae has recently been identified by scientists.

Not only does the research provide important insight into health-related problems linked to individuals with disrupted clocks - such as pilots and shift workers - it also indicates that the 24-hour circadian clock found in human cells is the same as that found in algae and dates back millions of years to early life on Earth.

Two new studies in the journal Nature from the Universities of Cambridge and Edinburgh give insight into the circadian clock which controls patterns of daily and seasonal activity, from sleep cycles to butterfly migrations to flower opening.

One study, from the University of Cambridge's Institute of Metabolic Science, has for the first time identified 24-hour rhythms in red blood cells.

 

This is significant because circadian rhythms have always been assumed to be linked to DNA and gene activity, but - unlike most of the other cells in the body - red blood cells do not have DNA:

The only cells which lack DNA are the mature red blood cells (erythrocytes).

 

This is because they lack a nucleus, which is where the DNA is found in other cells. Red blood cells also lack mitochondria which themselves have DNA. Therefore they not only lack nuclear DNA, but mitochondrial DNA as well.

Red blood cells develop in your bone marrow from special cells called stem cells. These do have a nucleus, but as the red blood cell develops the nucleus is squeezed out.

 

This makes more room for the red pigment hemoglobin, which is needed to carry the oxygen in the red cells.

Akhilesh Reddy, from the University of Cambridge and lead author of the study, said:

"We know that clocks exist in all our cells; they're hard-wired into the cell. Imagine what we'd be like without a clock to guide us through our days. The cell would be in the same position if it didn't have a clock to coordinate its daily activities.

 

"The implications of this for health are manifold. We already know that disrupted clocks - for example, caused by shift-work and jet-lag - are associated with metabolic disorders such as diabetes, mental health problems and even cancer.

 

By furthering our knowledge of how the 24-hour clock in cells works, we hope that the links to these disorders - and others - will be made clearer. This will, in the longer term, lead to new therapies that we couldn't even have thought about a couple of years ago."

For the study, the scientists, funded by the Wellcome Trust, incubated purified red blood cells from healthy volunteers in the dark and at body temperature, and sampled them at regular intervals for several days.

 

They then examined the levels of biochemical markers - proteins called peroxiredoxins - that are produced in high levels in blood and found that they underwent a 24-hour cycle. Peroxiredoxins are found in virtually all known organisms.

A further study, by scientists working together at the Universities of Edinburgh and Cambridge, and the Observatoire Oceanologique in Banyuls, France, found a similar 24-hour cycle in marine algae, indicating that internal body clocks have always been important, even for ancient forms of life.

The researchers in this study found the rhythms by sampling the peroxiredoxins in algae at regular intervals over several days.

 

When the algae were kept in darkness, their DNA was no longer active, but the algae kept their circadian clocks ticking without active genes. Scientists had thought that the circadian clock was driven by gene activity, but both the algae and the red blood cells kept time without it.

Andrew Millar of the University of Edinburgh's School of Biological Sciences, who led the study, said:

"This groundbreaking research shows that body clocks are ancient mechanisms that have stayed with us through a billion years of evolution. They must be far more important and sophisticated than we previously realized.

 

More work is needed to determine how and why these clocks developed in people - and most likely all other living things on earth - and what role they play in controlling our bodies."
