BIOCENTRISM: In a Participatory Universe, A Watched Pot Doesn’t Boil

“Et les étoiles d’or, légions infinies,
A voix haute, à voix basse, avec mille harmonies”  (Victor Hugo)

Ecstasy,  by Victor Hugo

I was alone beside the sea, one starry night. With not a single wave or sail in sight.  Past the world’s limits stretched my eye, And the forests and the mountains, with nature Seemed united in questioning, in vast yet mumbled sound, the billows of the ocean, and the splendor of the sky.

And the infinite legions of golden stars, had voices loud and deep, and harmonies over a thousand bars.  They replied, tipping low their radiant crowns of fame And the blue waters, which none could govern or arrest, Replied, tipping low the foam upon their crest: ‘The Lord, our great Creator! His glory we proclaim!’

AS AN ENGLISH LITERATURE STUDENT, I loved poetry that took me to the heavens. I wrote my first and only sonnet about “A myriad of worlds and worlds of heavenly dust, In splendor clad with awe-inspiring grace.”  We had to memorize this poem by Victor Hugo, in French, and all I can recall today is the caption under the picture above.  I found a translation of this first line of the second stanza on Google search. I just had to share this fond memory from seminary days. 

 There is nothing more demonstrative of the magnificent perfection of God’s Creation than the Universe of stars and galaxies. The only thing that surpasses it in wonder is the capacity we have to encompass a living image of it in our consciousness . . . and the miracle of eyesight that brings it all into our brains, where alone we can know it as being real. The Universe is specifically designed and balanced to support life and consciousness. 

The word Universe itself means to turn together as one.  The Universe is not many separate things.  It is one Creation whose sole purpose is to provide a morphic field and a material platform for Life to abound and bring forth its vast array of living forms—all of which spring forth from out of a microcosmic quantum world of energy waves and light frequencies that pop out transformed into the particles that make up the vast Cosmos and the macrocosmic world in which we live.  I stand in awe before the God of Creation, whose “Universe of stars is but a cloak to Thee,” to borrow a line from a friend’s powerful baritone solo “How shall we give Thee glory?”  How, indeed?

Moving on in this series, we come to the eighth chapter of Robert Lanza and Bob Berman’s fascinating book BIOCENTRISM — How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe.  Having read it many times over, I still ponder over the experiments that prove beyond any shadow of doubt that the physical world is observer-dependent for its existence.  Without the presence of consciousness and life, the Universe itself would not exist, for it is Life via Consciousness that creates the Universe and not the other way around, Darwinism notwithstanding.  This is the essence of Biocentrism.  I will share a few excerpts from this chapter for your pleasurable reading . . . and mental stretching.  (All underscores were added for emphasis)


Quantum theory has unfortunately become a catch-all phrase for trying to prove various kinds of New Age nonsense. It’s unlikely that the authors of the many books making wacky claims of time travel or mind control, and who use quantum theory as “proof” have the slightest knowledge of physics or could explain even the rudiments of quantum theory. The popular 2004 film, What the Bleep Do We Know? is a good case in point. The movie starts out claiming quantum theory has revolutionized our thinking—which is true enough—but then, without explanation or elaboration, goes on to say that it proves people can travel into the past or “choose which reality you want.”

Quantum theory says no such thing. Quantum theory deals with probabilities, and the likely places particles may appear, and likely actions they will take. And while, as we shall see, bits of light and matter do indeed change behavior depending on whether they are being observed, and measured particles do indeed amazingly appear to influence the past behavior of other particles, this does not in any way mean that humans can travel into their past or influence their own history.

Given the widespread generic use of the term quantum theory, plus the paradigm-changing tenets of biocentrism, using quantum theory as evidence might raise eyebrows among the skeptical. For this reason, it’s important that readers have some genuine understanding of quantum theory’s actual experiments—and can grasp the real results rather than the preposterous claims so often associated with it. For those with a little patience, this chapter can provide a life-altering understanding of the latest version of one of the most famous and amazing experiments in the history of physics.

I will not attempt to detail the actual experiments, which include the famous “double-slit” experiment that altered forever the scientific view of light—and everything else.  I will simply relate the eye-opening results and discoveries of these experiments.  Basically, the many scientists who performed the varied and progressively complex experiments over three-quarters of a century all came to the same history-altering conclusions, which I will share in excerpts.  But first, it’s interesting how this all got started.

It all really started early in the twentieth century when physicists were still struggling with a very old question—whether light is made of particles called photons or whether instead they are waves of energy. Isaac Newton believed it was made of particles. But by the late nineteenth century, waves seemed more reasonable. In those early days, some physicists presciently and correctly thought that even solid objects might have a wave nature as well.

The final conclusion of the experiments is that light is both wave and particle.  Waves, like those produced by two pebbles tossed upon the calm surface of a pond at the same time, meet each other and produce places of higher and lower crests. Some waves reinforce each other or, if one’s crest meets another’s trough, they cancel out at that spot.  These were called “interference patterns” in the experiments. This was one way the wave function of light was determined.  The second way was how the beam of light passed through both slots in the barrier board, unlike particles that passed through one or the other slit but not both.

So this early-twentieth-century result of an interference pattern, which can only be caused by waves, showed physicists that light is a wave or at least acts that way when this experiment is performed. The fascinating thing is that when solid physical bodies like electrons were used, they got exactly the same result. Solid particles have a wave nature too! So, right from the get-go, the double-slit experiment yielded amazing information about the nature of reality. Solid objects have a wave nature!

Now, for a look at the graphic details of the experiments, you’ll have to obtain a copy of the book and read how the complex experiments were performed, as I myself am still having a challenge following the details and connecting all the dots—and the graphics are simply too many for a blog this size.  The “weirdness” of the observations and conclusions did indeed entertain me and stretch my mental capacity.  The wave-and-particle nature of light is fascinating enough.  

Unfortunately, or fortunately, this was just the appetizer. Few realized that true strangeness was only beginning. 

The first oddity happens when just one photon or electron is allowed to fly through the apparatus at a time. After enough have gone through and been individually detected, this same interference pattern emerges. But how can this be? With what is each of those electrons or photons interfering? How can we get an interference pattern when there’s only one indivisible object in there at a time?  Somehow, these individual photons add up to an interference pattern! 

There has never been a truly satisfactory answer for this. Wild ideas keep emerging. Could there be other electrons or photons next door” in a parallel universe, from another experimenter doing the same thing? Could their electrons be interfering with ours? That’s so far-fetched that few believe it. 

The usual interpretation of why we see an interference pattern is that photons or electrons have two choices when they encounter the double slit. They do not actually exist as real entities in real places until they are observed, and they aren’t observed until they hit the final detection barrier. So when they reach the slits, they exercise their probabilistic freedom of taking both choices. Even though actual electrons or photons are indivisible, and never split themselves under any conditions whatsoever, their existence as probability waves are another story. Thus, what go “through the slit” are not actual entities but just probabilities. The probability waves of the individual photons interfere with themselves!  When enough have gone through, we see the overall interference pattern as all probabilities congeal into actual entities making impacts and being observed—as waves.  

Sure it’s weird, but this, apparently, is how reality works. And this is just the very beginning of quantum weirdness. Quantum theory, as we mentioned in the last chapter, has a principle called complementarity, which says that we can observe objects to be one thing or another—or have one position or property or another—but never both. It depends on what one is looking for and what measuring equipment is used. . . .

It turns out that the mere act of measurement, of learning the path of each photon, destroyed the photon’s freedom to remain blurry and undefined and take both paths until it reached the barriers. Its “wave-function” must have collapsed at our measuring device, . . . as it instantly “chose” to become a particle and go through one slit or the other. Its wave nature was lost as soon as it lost its blurry probabilistic not-quite-real state. But why should the photon have chosen to collapse its wave-function? How did it know that we, the observer, could learn which slit it went through? . . . .  We’re back to quantum theory’s complementarity—that you can measure and learn just one of a pair of characteristics but never both at the same time. If you fully learn about one, you will know nothing about the other.


Okay, let’s try something else.  In nature, as we saw in the last chapter, there are entangled particles or bits of light (or matter) that were born together and therefore share a wave-function according to quantum theory. They can fly apart—even across the width of the galaxy—and yet they still retain this connection, this knowledge of each other. If one is meddled with in any way so that it loses its “anything’s possible” nature and has to decide instantly to materialize with, say, a vertical polarization, its twin will then instantaneously materialize too, and with a horizontal polarity. If one becomes an electron with an up spin, the twin will too, but with a down spin. They’re eternally linked in a complementary way.

After more, and more complex, experiments with this quantum entanglement of twin particles, their conclusions were: 

It’s our knowledge alone with which the photons or electrons seem concerned. This alone influences their actions . . . .  Okay, this is bizarre. Yet these results happen every time, without fail. They’re telling us that an observer determines physical behavior of ‘external’ objects. . . .  It doesn’t matter how we set up the experiment. Our mind and its knowledge or lack of it is the only thing that determines how these bits of light or matter behave.

It forces us, too, to wonder about space and time. Can either be real if the twins act on information before it happens, and across distances instantaneously as if there is no separation between them? 

Again and again, observations have consistently confirmed the observer-dependent effects of quantum theory. In the past decade, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have carried out an experiment that, in the quantum world, is equivalent to demonstrating that a watched pot doesn’t boil. “It seems,” said Peter Coveney, a researcher there, “that the act of looking at an atom prevents it from changing.” (Theoretically, if a nuclear bomb were watched intently enough, it would not explode, that is, if you could keep checking its atoms every million trillionth of a second. This is yet another experiment that supports the theory that the structure of the physical world, and of small units of matter and energy in particular, are influenced by human observation.) . . . .  In the last couple of decades, quantum theorists have shown, in principle, that an atom cannot change its energy state as long as it is being continuously observed.

Of course, experiments were conducted to prove this principle true, which led to this conclusion: 

However, when the researchers kept checking the atoms every four milliseconds with a brief pulse of light from a laser, the atoms never made it to the higher energy state, despite the force driving them toward it. It would seem that the process of measurement gives the atoms “a little nudge,” forcing them back down to the lower energy state—in effect, resetting the system to zero. This behavior has no analog in the classical world of everyday sense awareness and is apparently a function of observation. . . .

. . . . Eugene Wigner, one of the twentieth century’s greatest physicists, stated that it is “not possible to formulate the laws of [physics] in a fully consistent way without reference to the consciousness [of the observer].” So when quantum theory implies that consciousness must exist, it tacitly shows that the content of the mind is the ultimate reality, and that only an act of observation can confer shape and form to reality—from a dandelion in a meadow to sun, wind, and rain.

And so, a fourth principle of Biocentrism:  Without consciousness, “matter” dwells in an undetermined state of probability. Any universe that could have preceded consciousness only existed in a probability state.

There are many implications in what I’ve just shared.  The one that comes up for me is based on the Creation story in Genesis that tells how we are each made in the image and likeness of our Creator, all sharing the same wave-function of Divine Being.  We may not share the same vibration as humans, but as beings we are each and all together vibrating at the same frequency of Love.  That makes us entangled partners in the quantum realm of Spirit, in the Heaven of this Earth.  We share an inseparable bond, and what I do impacts everyone else.  So, take care.  Until my next post,

Be love.  Be loved. 


“The Secret of Light” page 3

Walter Russell continues in this excerpt to expound on his profound understanding and knowledge of the nature of the Creator and creation and the positive and negative principles by which the entire universe, made of light, is governed. From my own personal experience of spiritual awakening, there was nothing in my consciousness that needed change more than my concept of God. The God of my imagination, fabricated and fostered by Christianity, was made in the image and likeness of man. Man, on the other hand, is made according to God’s “image.” Russell sheds an entirely new light on this word “image.” I think you will be enlightened by his insight into the “mystery of God.”


God, the Creator, is all there IS; all that EXISTS. God’s creating universe of matter in motion appears to exist. To oursenses it sequentially disappears, to reap­pear. It has no reality. It but simulates reality through the illusion of twoway projected lights in motion.

God, the Creator, is the One Being, the One Person, the One Mind, the One Thinker, the One Self, the One Life, the

One Soul, the One Power, the One Reality. God’s Creation is the imaged patterned form of God’s imagining, built in His image. It is the body of God, the record of His thinking, created by Him for expressing the Oneness of Life, Love, Mind, Soul and Power which is in Him alone.


God is Light. God is Universal Mind. Mind is Light. Mind knows. Mind thinks what it knows. Mind thinks in two opposed lights simultaneously projected from their centering white Light Source and sequentially repeated in cycles.

God’s thinking and imagining are qualities of God’s knowing. God’s knowing Mind is timeless and still. So also are God’s thinking and imagining timeless and still. So, likewise, man’s thinking and imagining are as time­
less and still as is his knowing. 

Stillness never can be motion, or become motion, but it can appear to be. Motion merely seems, but stillness
always is. The universal equilibrium can never be other than its own balance but it can seem to be. The illusion
which is motion springs from stillness and returns to stillness. This is a universe of rest. There is naught but
rest in the universe.

Mind knows its One Idea of Creation as One Whole. Mind thinks its One Whole idea into seeming parts. Hence the illusion of motion which we call Creation, and the illusion of substance which we call matter. Matter, motion, time, change, dimension and sub­stance have no existence. The Light of knowing Mind alone exists. There is but One Mind and One Thinker.

The One Light of knowing Mind is Self of God. It is the Universal Self which centers all omnipresent self­creating bodies of God-Selves. This self creating universe is the Mind imagined body of God, and record of God’s thinking.

We can KNOW God. We cannot KNOW His body but we can SEE it. Likewise we can KNOW man. We cannot KNOW the body of man but we can SEE it. What God is man is. God and man are ONE.


We seemingly live in two universes; the still cosmic Mind universe of KNOWING and the moving thought­ of-Mind rhythmic wave universe of SENSING.

We cannot sense the cosmic universe of God’s know­ing nor can we know the thought-wave universe of God’s thinking. The cosmic Mind universe of the One Light of all ­knowing is all that is. The vibrating thought-wave universe of sensing mere­ ly seems.


The one still Light of God is the cosmic Light which watches over all creating things at countless points locatable by man, but invisible to man.

Man’s senses have misled him into believing in a force called magnetism which attracts compass needles and lifts tons of steel. These phenomena of motion are due to electricity and not to magnetism. The cosmic Light is absolutely still. It neither attracts nor repels.

We now need to comprehend the nature and purpose of the “magnetic poles” of suns, planets and all other moving extensions of the One Light. Likewise, we need to know the nature and purpose of the two electric work­
ers which interweave this light mirage of seeming motion and dissolve it sequentially for rebuilding. This will give a foundation of knowledge to man which will enable him to see behind the illusions which deceive his senses.

The time has come in the history of man’s journey from his material jungle to his spiritual mountain top when it is imperative that he must live more and more in the cosmic Light universe of knowing, and less in the electric wave universe of sensing.

Man must know that his power lies in the stillness of his centering Self and not in the motion by means of which he manifests that stillness. He must know that his Self is God in him. Also he must know gradually the dawning awareness of the cosmic Light of God in him, for with it comes an awareness of his purposefulness in manifesting the Light and the power to manifest it.

Man must now know the universe of God for what it is instead of what his senses have made him believe it to be.

Also, he must know that this forever creating universe which seems so real to him is but a cosmic cinema, con­ceived by the Master Playwright. It is but an electrically projected, spectrum-colored light and sound-wave
motion picture play of CAUSE AND EFFECT thrown on the black screen of imaged space and time.

The CAUSE is real. The EFFECT is but a simulation of the reality.  The Self of man is cause. His self-creating body is

God’s universe of magnetic Light is static. God’s perpetually creating electric wave universe of two moving lights is dynamic. It forever moves. The two moving lights are projected through each other from the static One to create the illusion of the idea they but manifest. The illusion which manifests the idea of Cre­ation through seeming motion is not the idea which it seemingly manifests.

Creation is the product of Mind-knowing expressed in form by Mind-Thinking. The product of Mind is not the idea which it simu­lates. No idea of Mind is ever created. It is but simulated by form and motion. Idea is eternal and belongs to God’s still universe of knowing. Form of idea in matter is transient but is eternally repeated as transient form of idea.


The foundation of the spiritual universe is stillness; the balanced stillness of the One magnetic Light of God.  Balanced stillness is the Positive Principle of stability and unity. In it there are no negations.


The foundation of the physical universe is motion; the ever-changing motion arising out of pairs of unbalanced
conditions which must forever move to seek the bal­anced stillness of unity from which they sprang as mul­
tiple pairs of units.

Unbalanced motion is the Negative Principle of insta­bility, multiplicity and separateness which is this physi­cal universe of electric octave waves of opposed lights.

In the Negative Principle there is no positive. It is composed entirely of pairs of negations which are for­ever voiding each other, cancelling each other’s action and reaction, thus negating each other by never allow­ing either one to exceed its fixed zero of universal still­ness.


The still magnetic Light universe of God’s knowing is an invisible, unchanging, unconditioned and unmeasur-
able quality from which visible, changing, conditioned and measurable quantities spring to simulate those qual­lities through two-way wave motion. There is no one word in any language to express that quality so we must use many words, all having the same meaning but different connotations. 

These words are mind, consciousness, love, life, truth, desire, knowledge, power, balance and law.

The God-quality of the One Light is seemingly trans­formed into quantities by being divided into pairs of oppositely-conditioned light pressures of this electric universe. These divided pairs are then multiplied into
countless octave wave units of light pressures and set in opposite directioned motion to create the illusion of
sequence, change, dimension, condition and time in a universe where none of these effects of motion exist.

The calm sea, for example, is an unchanging, unmea­surable quality of oneness, of sameness and stillness.
Upon its calm surface there is no change, nothing to count or to measure.

The moment that quantities of waves spring from that quality of calm, those quantities can be measured. Like­wwise, they are forever changing. Nor are there two points in them which are similarly conditioned.

This creating electric universe is composed of moving light waves which sprang from a calm sea of the One still Light.

It is ‘a universe of moving pairs of quantities which simulate the quality of stillness from which those quan­tities spring. The quantities of divided and conditioned pairs of opposite lights which thus simulate the One are not the One they simulate.

The Creator is One Mind indivisible. Creation is One Whole Idea of Mind divided into countless simulated ideas of mind, through motion. The simulation of Idea thus expressed is not the idea that it expresses.

Parts of the One Whole Idea are only seeming. There are no two separate or separable things in the universe.
There is but One Whole Simulation of the One Whole Idea.

“Everything that is is of everything else that is. All things are indissolubly united. ” —From THE DIVINE ILIAD

Every happening anywhere happens everywhere. The milkweed fluff floating lazily in the summer sky affects the balance of the whole universe of suns and galaxies. Every part of the universe moves in interdependent unison as the wheels of a watch move in unison. The watch wheels are geared together mechanically. The rhythmic wave universe is geared together electrically.

The entire universe is one and must be kept in balance as one. Changes of condition in anyone part are simul­taneously reflected in every other part, and are sequen­tially repeated in it.

“‘There is but One Whole Simulation of the One Whole Idea.”  How profoundly simple this truth is. “Everything that is is of everything else that is.'” If you’ve never read THE DIVINE ILIAD, you’re in for a treat.  See you in a week for the next installment ih this series “The Secret of Light.”


“The Secret of Light” page 2

Well, are we ready for another dose of Walter Russel from The Secret of Light ? Here is the second half of chapter twelve in which Russell challenges current scientific thinking about the nature of light, presenting a new paradigm in which light does not travel at 186,400 miles per second. In his physics, light does not travel at all, not even from the sun! Hmm. If you liked the previous post — which you really need to read first if you’re just tuning into this series — you will really like this one — especially after two or three readings!  Enjoy!


There is much confusion concerning the many kinds of particles of matter such as electrons, protons, photons, neutrons and others. These many particles are sup­posedly different because of the belief that some are negatively charged, some are positively charged and some are so equally charged that one supposedly neu­tralizes the other.

There is no such condition in nature as negative charge, nor are there negatively charged particles. Charge and discharge are opposite conditions, as filling and emptying, or compressing and expanding are oppo­site conditions.

Compressing bodies are charging into higher potential conditions. Conversely, expanding bodies are discharg­ing into lower potential conditions. To describe an elec­tron as a negatively charged body is equivalent to saying that it is an expanding-contracting body. 

Contracting and expanding bodies move in opposite directions. Contracting bodies move radially inward toward mass centers, and expanding bodies move radially outward toward space which surrounds masses. In this two-way universe, light which is inwardly directed toward gravity charges mass and discharges space. When directed toward space it charges space and dis­charges mass. All direction of force in Nature is spiral.

The charging condition is positive. It multiplies speed of motion into density of substance. The principle of multiplication of motion because of decrease of volume is the cause of the acceleration of gravity. The discharg­ing condition is negative. It divides speed of motion into tenuity of substance. The principle of the division of motion because of expansion of volume, is the cause of the deceleration of radiation. 

One can better comprehend this principle by knowing that what we call substance is purely motion. Motion simulates substance by its variation of pressures, its speed and its gyroscopic relation to its wave axis.

Particles are variously conditioned as to pressure but there are no different kinds of particles. All are light waves wound up into particles which are doubly charged. Their position at anyone point in their wave causes them to have the electric condition appropriate for that point.  

Light particles are forever moving in their octave waves. All are either heading toward their cathode or their anode, which means toward vacuity or gravity. They are all moving either inward or outward, spirally.


All light particles are either expressing the mother-light principle or the father-light principle. For example, if a particle is on the amplitude of the wave, it would be a true sphere, and as a true sphere it would be neither positive nor negative. It might then appropriately be called a neutron. A particle which is spirally heading inward toward the apex of a vortex in the process of becoming a sphere might appropriately be called a proton, because of its expressing the father-light principle.

Again,if it is moving spirally outward, it could appro­priately be called an electron because it would then be discharging in excess of its charge or expanding in excess of its contraction. 

Light rays, for example, leaving the sun, are discharg­ing the sun. They are also discharging themselves because they are expanding into greater volume. They are also lowering their own potential by multiplying their volume. They reverse their polarity when radially converging upon the earth. They are then charging the earth and themselves by contracting into smaller volume and are simultaneously multiplying their own potential by thus contracting.


In an electric current there is a constant interchange between anode and cathode or positive and negative poles. A light particle expands as it leaves the anode in an outward radial direction and contracts as it radially approaches the anode.’ This light particle has been the same light particle at all times in all parts of its journey.

Its variation of charge and discharge, its direction of motion and the condition of wave pressure in which it finds itself at any time are the sole reasons for its chang­ing from one condition to another. The light particles are all the same light particles, all being different only in pressure condition. 

This is also true of the elements of matter. Whether they be iron, carbon, silicon, bismuth or radium, all are composed of the same kind of light particles. They all seem to have different qualities and attributes, but those qualities and attributes are likewise given to them purely by the positions they occupy in their waves.


A particle of light which belongs to an atomic system of sodium has in it all of the entire range of the ele­ments, besides all of every other creating thing in the universe. It acts to carry out the purposefulness of the idea of sodium simply because it is in the pressure con­dition of sodium, and is a part of the unfolding pattern of the seed of inert gas of the octave from which it has unfolded. 

If that same particle unfolded from the seed of the oak, it would be part of the wood fiber of its trunk, or leaf, or of the chlorophyll which colored its leaves, but it would be the same kind of particle while fulfilling the purpose of cellulose as while fulfilling the purpose of sodium.

All matter in this universe is but differently conditioned motion simulating light, and all differences in condition are pressure differences. 


The speed with which light presumably travels is186,400 miles per second. The distance between stars is so great that the speed of light is computed as light years, for the distance computed by lesser units of time would yield figures so great that they would be meaningless.

Light only seems to travel. It is but one more of the countless illusions caused by wave motion. Waves of the ocean seem to traverse the ocean but they only appear to do so, for waves are pistons in the universal engines, and pistons operate up and down. Wave pistons of light, or of the ocean, operate radially and spirally inward and outward, toward and away from gravity.

Waves of light do not travel. They reproduce each other from wave field to wave field of space. The planes of zero curvature which bound all wave fields act as mirrors to reflect light from one field into another. This sets up an appearance of light as travelling, which is pure illusion.

The sunlight we feel upon our bodies is not actual light from the sun. What actually is happening is that the sun is reproducing its own condition on the earth by extending the reproductions out through cold space into ever enlarging wave fields until those reproductions begin to converge again toward our center of gravity into ever smaller wave fields. The heat we feel and the light we see are dependent entirely upon the ability of the wave fields to reproduce the light and heat, and that ability is conditioned upon the amount of moisture in the atmosphere.

If there were no moisture in the atmosphere, our bodies would carbonize from the heat thus reproduced. One cannot consistently think of that heat as direct rays of the sun, for that same sunlight was intensely cold during its reproduced journey through the immensely expanded wave fields of space between the sun and earth.

The light and heat which appear to come from the star or sun have never left the star or sun. That which man sees as light and feels as heat are the reproduced counterparts of the light and heat which are its cause.

The rate of vibration in a wave field depends upon its volume. Vibration in a wave field means the pulse of interchange between its compressed core and the space surrounding that core. A slow vibration in a large wave field would cool one’s body, or even freeze it, while fast pulsing interchange in extremely small wave fields could burn one’s body. 


A lens which multiplies light and heat toward a focal point which sets paper on fire merely compresses larger wave fields into smaller ones. The rate of vibration increases for the same reason that the planets nearest the sun move much faster in their small orbits than those which are far away from the sun. Kepler’s law covering the speeds of planets will apply to rates of vibration in wave fields as appropriately as with the vements in the solar system.

Stay tuned for more of Walter Russell and The Secret of Light.

“The Secret of Light”

This is without a doubt the most challenging blog I’ve yet to attempt writing, for my subject is a very deep and complex thinker and writer. No one that I have read thus far has written so eloquently and authoritatively on the nature of Light as has Walter Russell. I am reading his book The Secret of Light for the second time and it amazes me how it seems that it’s really for the first time – even with the highlights proving that I’ve read it before. It’s been a few years since my first reading, and it seems I’ve evolved in consciousness enough to be able to hear more deeply what he is saying in his unique articulate manner of word usage – as you will soon see from the excerpts I wish to share in this series. So, let’s dive right into the remarkable mind of Walter Russell (1871-1963) to see what wisdom and understanding we might glean from his writings. I will simply start out with his statement of intention from the Author’s Forward:

Walter Russell

Jesus said “GOD IS LIGHT,” and no man of that day knew what He meant. The day is now here when all men must know what Jesus meant when He said “GOD IS LIGHT.” 

For within the secret of Light is vast knowledge yet unrevealed to man. Light is all there is; it is all we have to deal with, but we do not yet know what it is. The purpose of this message is to tell what it is. 

And, of course, the rest of the book does just that: it tells what Light is – and it’s nothing like anything you or I have imagined it to be or knew it to be. We’ve simply taken it for granted. Now, as I recall other words Jesus is recorded to have spoken, Walter’s words ring true to His words about the “kingdom of heaven” being “within you and all around you. . . . Repent [turn around], for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Light, that which all of creation is made of, is within us and all around us. Look again and see clearly that the kingdom – the governance – of Light, of God, is at hand.  We do not have to die in order to arrive in heaven – if, indeed, dying were even possible – for we are there already in the here and now.  As for death, according the Russell, there is no such thing – but that’s a later post of this series on The Secret of Light.

There is no way that I can simplify a subject matter that is so complex, and yet so simple and logical, that it defies further simplification for further explanation. So, I will not attempt to explain the secret of Light, and therefore of God, as Walter Russell does so uniquely. I will let his words meet your eyes and intellect directly without my interpretations. I will simply limit my interference to your read with occasional comments and impressions. What is of utmost importance is that we human beings come to know what is real and what is mere illusion in the world in which we live and have our being. I will start this series with chapter twelve, entitled “LIGHT,” taking into consideration all that has been considered in previous chapters that may enhance our comprehension and understanding. Enjoy the read.

Chapter XII


Light cannot be seen; it can only be known. Light is still. The sense of sight cannot respond to stillness. That which the eyes “feel” and believe to be Light is but wave motion simulating the idea of Light. Like all things else in this electric wave universe the idea of Light cannot be produced. Electric waves simulate idea only. They do not become idea.

When man sees the light of the sun he believes that he is actually seeing light when the nerves of his eyes are but “feeling” the intense, rapid, shortwave vibrations of the kind of wave motion which he senses as incandes­cence. The intensely vibrant electric current mirrored into the senses of the eyes fairly burns them. They can­not stand that high rate of vibration. The eyes would be destroyed by such a vibration, but light would not be the cause of that destruction. Fast motion, simulating light, would be the cause. It would be like sending a high volt­age electric current over a wire so fine that the current would burn it out.

Man likewise cannot see darkness. The nerves of his eyes which sense motion slow down to a rate of vibration which he can no longer “feel.”

Man is so accustomed to the idea that he actually sees light in various intensities illuminating various sub­stances to greater or lesser degree that it is difficult for him to realize that his own senses are but acting as mirrors to reflect various intensities of wave motion. But that is all that is happening.

Every electrically conditioned thing in Nature reflects the vibrations of every other thing, to fulfill its desire to
synchronize its vibrations with every other thing. All matter is the motion of light. All motion is expressed in waves. All light waves are mirrors which reflect each other’s condition unto the farthermost star.

This is an electrically conditioned wave universe. All wave conditions are forever seeking oneness. For this reason all sensation responds to all other sensation.


Much controversy has arisen as to whether light is corpuscular, as Newton claimed it to be, or a wave. There is much evidence in favor of both theories. It is both. Light is expressed by motion. All motion is wave motion. All waves are expressed by fields of equal and opposite pressures of two-way motion. The entire vol­ume within wave fields is filled with the two opposite expressions of motion-the positive expression which compresses light into solids, and the negative expression which expands it into space surrounding solids.

All space within wave fields is curved. Curvature ends at planes of zero curvature which bound all wave fields.
These boundary planes of omnipresent magnetic Light act as mirrors to reflect all curvature into all other wave
fields in the universe, and as fulcrums from which motion in one wave field is universally repeated.


Together these constitute what we call matter and space. It has been difficult to conceive light as being purely corpuscular, for light is presumed to fill all space. Space is not empty. It is full of wave motion. Corpuscles of matter are one half of wave cycles of light. Space is the other half.

There need be no mystery as to whether light is cor­puscular or wave, for waves of motion which simulate the light and darkness of space are all there is.

The light and motion of solid matter, and of gaseous matter of space, differs only in volume and condition. Water of earth is compressed into small volume while water of the heavens is expanded thousands of time in volume. Each condition is the opposite half of the cycle of water.

Water vapor is water turned inside-out. It again becomes water by turning outside-in. Expansion­ contraction sequences result from this process.


Water of the heavens still is water, and it still is light waves. No change whatsoever has taken place between
the waters of earth and those of the heavens except a change of its condition from positive to negative pre-ponderance. This change is due solely to a change of its direction in respect to its center of gravity.

All dense cold matter, such as iron, stone, wood, and all growing or decaying things, are light. We do not think of them as light but all are waves of motion, and all waves of motion are light.

Light is all there is in the spiritual universe of know­ing, and simulation of that Light in opposite extensions is all there is in the electric wave universe of sensing. The simulation of Light in matter is not Light. There is no Light in matter.

Perhaps the confusion which attends this idea would be lessened if we classify everything concerning the spiritual universe, such as life, intelligence, truth, power, knowledge and balance as being the ONE LIGHT of KNOWING, and everything concerning matter and motion as being the TWO SIMULATED LIGHTS of thinking.

Thinking expresses knowing in matter but matter does not think, nor does it know.

Thinking also expresses life, truth, idea, power and balance by recording the ideas of those qualities in the two lights of matter in motion, but matter does not live, nor is it truth, balance or idea, even though it simulates those spiritual qualities.

Man’s confusion concerning this differentiation lies in his long assumption of the reality of matter. His assumption that his body is his Self, that his knowledge is in his brain, and that he lives and dies because his body inte­grates and disintegrates, has been so fundamental a part of his thinking that it is difficult for him to reverse his thinking to the fact that matter is but motion and has no reality beyond simulating reality.

The light which we think we see is but motion. We do not see light. We feel the wave vibrations set up by the
motion which simulates light, but the motion of electric waves which simulate light is not that which it simu­lates.

Let’s take a break from this dense reading and give our brains an opportunity to digest and assimilate what Russell has thus far presented. I’ll continue next week. Thank you for joining me in this blog series “The Secret of Light.”

Apocalypse of Light 2013: Russell’s Two-Way Universe. . . page 3, LIGHT


Sound has taken its long-deserved place in the healing field and as a vibrational tool for transformation.  Yet it is Light that works the subtle magic of transformation and creation.  Man would do well to understand the true nature of Light, as Light is the Creator. 

Walter Russell

Walter Russell

There is a statement in Walter Russell’s The Divine Iliad that describes how I feel when I open his books to read just a few dense pages at a time.  Somehow he has managed to craft words to convey his knowledge and new concepts of the Universe. I find myself greatly challenged to find words to adequately condense his thoughts and inspirations in a few blog posts. What I can and will do is use excerpts in order to preserve the author’s original meaning and expression. I can also recommend his books.  They are a treasure indeed, a feast for thought. I get the clear impression, however, that to understand where he’s coming from, one has to at least be open to that higher dimension from which he writes, if not enter it as well.  The words of this excerpt will clarify what I just wrote:

All knowledge existeth. All knowledge cometh to man in its season. Cosmic messengers periodically give to man such knowledge of My cosmos as man is able to comprehend, but that which he can bear is like unto a thimbleful out of the mighty ocean, for man is but beginning to comprehend. 

When man knoweth Light then he will know no limitation, but man must know the Light for himself and none there be who can make words of it, for Light knoweth Light and there need be no words.

Experience is the only real path to knowledge. Words that arise from experience are authentic symbols of the truth they are intended to convey.  Russell minces no words in telling it the way it really is, knowing full well that he’s contradicting the status quo of scientific thought. To follow up my last post, here are the basic misconceptions of science which Walter Russell examines and finds sorely lacking validity.  ____________________________________________________________________



1. The cardinal error of science lies in shutting the Creator out of His Creation.

If we leave the Creator out of Creation, we cannot understand light, matter, energy, electricity, magnetism or atomic structure. 

If science knew what light actually IS, instead of the waves and corpuscles of incandescent suns which science now thinks it is, a new civilization would arise from that one fact alone.

Light is not waves which travel at 186,000 miles per second, which science says it is, — nor does light travel at all.

We talked about Russell’s view of cause and effect in the previous post. Cause relates to knowing, and effects relates to sensing.  The one is invisible, and the other visible.  So is it with light.  Light — so-called “electromagnetic radiation” — is invisible, cannot be seen with our physical eyes.  What we see that we call light is the reflection of the invisible radiation of light bouncing off of molecules, which are themselves created by light. Russell speaks in terms of what he terms “electric pressure.” The light of the sun, he explains, “is but an effect of one of the two equally-opposed electric pressure conditions which interweave this universe into visible solids and liquids surrounded by invisible gases of space.”  

These opposite electric pressure conditions that form the basis of the constitution of matter are “the compressed condition of gravity and the expanded condition of radiation pressure. These two electric conditions are the equal-and-opposite pressures which make motion imperative and without which motion is impossible.” They are positive and negative conditions, as he explains:

The positive electric condition compresses large volumes of light-waves into small volumes by winding them up centripetally into spiral vortices  by thrusting inward from without. That is what gravitation is.

The negative electric condition expands small volumes of light-waves into large volumes by unwinding them centrifugally into voiding equators where matter disappears. That is what radiation is. Radiation thrusts outwardly from within to depolarize matter and void motion.

The light of suns and the dark of space are but two opposite conditions of the same thing.  They interchange constantly. Each becomes the other sequentially.

This two-way balancing act reminds me of Mandelbot’s “interration” or looping effect he discovered in fractal geometry. The output of one operation becomes the input of another. The Mandelbot  Set may well be the “thumbprint of God” on creation. It graphically describes Russell’s “Two-Way Universe.”  Russell then goes on to show how God can be proven to exist in the laboratory, something that science denies is possible and, therefore, decided to excluded God in its considerations, leaving God to religion and spirituality.  Russell passionately fosters a marriage between science and spirituality, and paves the way for such a union to come about.

This decision is unfortunate for God IS provable by laboratory methods. The locatable motionless Light which man mistakenly calls magnetism is the invisible, but familiar, Light which God IS — and with it He controls His universe — as we shall see.

From the Divine Iliad these words speak to the identity of the Creator:

“I am LIGHT, but the Light which is Me is not the sensed light of the sensed universe of My creation. I, the Creator, think.  I think in two lights extended from the One Light of Me, yet those two lights are not Me, nor is My thinking Me.  Verily I say, I give to Me and I take away; for I am the Imaginer who builds image forms to tear apart to build anew. I am thinking Mind, forever thinking the changing image of My unchanging self.  My image changes ever with the changing of the two lights of My thinking, though I, My Self, change not. All things change, and their changing still images Me, yet they are not Me.”



2. The Einstein theory of the constitution of matter conceives this universe to be “one great ocean of electro-magnetism, out of which — and into which — flow the streams of gravitation, matter and energy.”

Radiation, the equal-and-opposite of gravitation, without which gravitation is impossible, is entirely ignored in this fantastic and unnatural concept. Equally fantastic is the claim of this theory that “it is possible to have gravitation without matter,” and “for space to exist without gravity or without matter.”

The weak point in this theory is the fact that electro-magnetism is not an existent force in Nature; nor are there electro-magnetic fields or magnetic fields. Wave fields are electric — exclusively electric.

God uses electricity exclusively to create this universe.  His only “tools” are two pairs of opposed spiral vortices. “One of these opposite pairs meets at apices [apexes] at wave amplitudes to create spheres of matter and the other opposed pair meets at cone bases upon wave axes to void both matter and motion.”   Russell describes these two opposed spiral voritces as the “giving and regiving” life-and-death cycles.  “Life is God’s gift to man,” he writes, “and death is man’s gift to God.”  We receive our bodies from God and when we’re finished our earthly journey we give them back to God to be recycled.  I like his perspective.



These two pairs of opposed electric spiral vortices are the basic units which create all matter. Together they form the electric waves of motion which create various pressure conditions which are needed to produce the many seemingly different elements of visible and invisible matter.

Electricity is divided into two equal-and-opposite forces which thrust away from each other to build this polarized universe.

When inability to thrust away from each other takes its sequential turn in the pulse of the universal heartbeat, depolarization voids all opposition. Thus this universe consists of cycles of life followed by death — growth followed by decay, and generation followed by radiation — each expressed simultaneously and repeated sequentially forever without end. 

That which science calls magnetism, and believes to be a force which has the power of lifting tons of steel, is God’s still Light which balances and controls the equality of electric division, but electricity alone performs all the work of this universe. The magnetic Light which controls the universal balance performs no work whatsoever. 

A bar magnet picks up nails because of the electric current which divided that steel into its activated polarized condition and not because of its focal poles of stillness which center its two activities. Even though the electric current has been withdrawn, the steel retains its electric activity for long periods and acts as though the current still remained.

As I understand it, the molecules in the steel bar have been polarized in one direction by the current of electricity, allowing energy to continue flowing through the bar magnet even after the electrical current has been withdrawn.

Magnetic Light control might be likened to a rudder of a ship which controls the direction of the ship’s motion without in any way motivating that motion. It might again be likened to the fulcrum which extends its power of expression through motion to a lever, without in any way acting to motivate that expressed motion of the lever.

God’s still magnetic Light is the fulcrum of this creating universe. Electricity is the two-way lever which extends from that fulcrum to give the universe its pulsing heartbeat of simulated life-death sequences.

Whenever God’s Light appears in matter, there stillness centers motion, but there is no motion at that point. The center of gravity in a spherical sun or earth is one locatable point where God’s Light is. Likewise, the shaft which connects all pairs of opposed poles is an extension of stillness from the zero of wave beginnings to the zero of wave amplitudes, and the return of motion to the zero of its beginnings in the stillness of its borning place on its wave axis.

This is a universe of Light-at-rest from which two opposed lights-of-motion appear to manifest the IDEA which is eternally sealed in the Light-at-rest. 

That’s plenty enough food for thought, so I’ll close this post and let you to your pensive meditation upon these new concepts. They certainly are put forward boldly by Russell. I don’t know about you, but, as foreign as they are to what I studied in science and physics, Russell’s “new knowledge” rests easy on my mind, although it’s having a hard time wrapping itself around some of them. 

I thank you for visiting my blog. I do hope you are enjoying the current posts — and I welcome your feedback and comments. Until we meet again to muse on these fascinating excerpts from Walter Russell’s book, A New Concept of the Universe, and some of his other writings, I bid you good day!
