About a month ago I ordered the next book in my research studies, Science and Human Transformation – Subtle Energies, Intentionality and Consciousness by William A. Tiller, PHD. I imagined the book would be a follow up for Tuning the Diamonds by Susan A. Renison. While I am not quite done with the book I’ve got about a chapter left, I will write the review. The book is definitely a step up from Tuning the Diamonds in technicality but the subject is for the most part is similar if not the same.
This book deals with these supersensible domains of Nature and how we might expand our present-day scientific thinking to meaningfully map out these new territories. The break with the past will come, in part, by accepting that, like light and sound, our present band of cognition gives us a window on only a very small portion of Nature’s total modes of expression. Likewise, space and time, although key variables the brain uses for cognition of the information impinging on our physical sensor arrays, are not necessarily the only nariables or the best variables for cognition of the broader domains of Nature. – Preface (pg iX).
Tiller spent many years researching subtle energies and their effects on human intentionality and consciousness. The book begins similarly to most books on the subject of metaphysics and subtle energies where the scientist tries to change the current “paradigm” of modern physics to include subtle energies and their thoughts on the subject. I don’t think changing the paradigm of modern physics is the right answer, but rather create a new universal model to include subtle energies, which I suppose could be seen as the same thing? The first chapter has discussions such as; A Biological Radiation Detector, A Few Other Psychokinesis Studies, Monitoring Subtle Energy Events in A Healer, Some Photographic Evidence of Subtle Energies, A Partial Catalogue of Subtle Energy Phenomena, Children As Subtle Energy Detectors, Magnetism As A Factor In The Subtle Energy Arena and A Working Hypothesis. This book is definitely not for someone who is new to the subject and has no scientific background of the Universe. It is a fabulous follow up for Tuning the Diamonds, but it definitely could use some work. The Source Field by David Wilcock and Tuning the Diamonds by Susan A Renison have one thing in common and that is a theory or overall concept where they research their concept and write the book according to their own theory/concept. The difference in Science and Human Transformation by William A. Tiller is that there isn’t a major theory/concept but discussions and reports from experiments he’s done. So it is a little hard to follow for the average reader if they, again, do not have a scientific background regarding the Universe. However, it is an excellent book to provide “food for thought” as it describes experiments done by Tiller and his colleagues.
There is an unseen matrix which gives form to the seen. It is in constant flow and harmony through an instantaneous exchange of information in every direction. From a higher dimensional perspective the multiplicity of seemingly disparate laws that govern our observational experiences appear to come from a common simple origin. According to Tiller, “—the entire human species seems to be part of one vast organism”. Thus, each individual influences the dynamic equilibrium of this multidimensional model. In Tiller’s negative space/time model, the subtle energies which make up our etheric body vibrate at speeds fast than light. The flow is not only outward, but echoes back to the source in a panholographic pattern that reflects the state of each individual element, the part reflecting the whole and the whole influenced by every part. Each person may be defined in terms of a vibrational tone, merging with others into chords creating greater or lesser harmony, all part of a grand symphony with harmonic and subharmonic scales and overtones all merging into the one note of Creation, the vibration of love. – Preface,Science and Human Transformation (pg iX)
When A New Science of Life was first published the British journal Nature called it “the best candidate for burning there has been for many years.” The book called into question the prevailing mechanistic theory of life when its author, Rupert Sheldrake, a former research fellow of the Royal Society, proposed that morphogenetic fields are responsible for the characteristic form and organization of systems in biology, chemistry, and physics–and that they have measurable physical effects. Using his theory of morphic resonance, Sheldrake was able to reinterpret the regularities of nature as being more like habits than immutable laws, offering a new understanding of life and consciousness.
In the years since its first publication, Sheldrake has continued his research to demonstrate that the past forms and behavior of organisms influence present organisms through direct immaterial connections across time and space. This can explain why new chemicals become easier to crystallize all over the world the more often their crystals have already formed, and why when laboratory rats have learned how to navigate a maze in one place, rats elsewhere appear to learn it more easily. With more than two decades of new research and data, Rupert Sheldrake makes an even stronger case for the validity of the theory of formative causation that can radically transform how we see our world and our future.
RUPERT SHELDRAKE, Ph.D., is a former research fellow of the Royal Society and former director of studies in biochemistry and cell biology at Clare College, Cambridge University. He is the author of more than 80 technical papers and articles appearing in peer-reviewed scientific journals and 10 books, including The Presence of the Past, The Rebirth of Nature, and Seven Experiments That Could Change the World.
