When we at Bluedot first started to collaborate with Dr Goswami, he would often speak of the revolution that has been occurring in science. We would patiently and somewhat reluctantly listen, wondering how or why anyone in science would intentionally work to keep new valid discoveries out of the public awareness as well as to work politically to secure the dogma of scientific materialism as the only mode of relevant scientific inquiry. We couldn’t really even process it.
But we listened, and we created the Quantum Activist, focusing not on the battle, but on the solutions. Yet we did mention it as the tagline.
As the years have accrued, we have seen again and again indeed there is an active and concerted plan to expunge any discoveries or thought into arena’s that are not easily patentable as are the incremental changes that are directly applied to the materialist realm. You know, cell phones are important. Telepathy…? Nonlocality… ?
First there was the chance encounter with a dean of the science department as he literally frothed at the mouth yelling at us – “Why are you interested in what HE has to say, all this mumbo jumbo about consciousness being the ground of being is non-sense, not science!!” He was truly bent out of shape that we were there to interview Amit Goswami and not himself about the cutting edge of research that day. I’ll never forget how his secretary was abhorred and apologetic to our crew. Thankfully, we helped move Amit out of that building weeks later.
Then there was the unique experience of Dr. Goswami’s Wikipedia page being pulled – essentially by one adamant voice arguing that although he is a popular author numerous times over, stars in a film made about his concepts and ideas, was in What The Bleep Do We Know? – (the 5th largest grossing documentary of all time) and… literally wrote the university text on quantum physics; Still this person argued his irrelevance effectively removing Dr. Goswami’s Wikipedia page. Effectively trying to stop the ability for us all to respond to the evolutionary imperative of our day. My recent check shows Amit referenced on 105 other wikipedia pages, but his was removed?
We still don’t have this one solved, and there is still a vacuum at Wikipedia where Amit’s page was. I invite you to read the dialogue on his removal, and assist us in solving this travesty.
Then the day we received a threatening letter from the provost, demanding we remove any reference that Dr. Goswami was professor ‘emeritus’, from any documents that contained his biography. Now remember, Amit retired from the University of Oregon as a tenured professor after 29 years of teaching – starting there in 1968. Even still, these previous noble institutions seek to discredit, while profiting from his work.
And now, TED. Oh TED – idea’s worth spreading, but… here is the current caveat, they are only idea’s worth spreading if they fit within a ‘head in the sand’ view of materialist science as has been codified by the institutions that have deemed how to profit from this model and eradicate any of the breakthrough discoveries that have given birth to much of our modern society.
Dr Sheldrake, Hancock, Schlitz, Goswami (prior to this event) are all blacklisted by this most popular format of exchanging ideas that will inform us all and help guide our future.
This revolution that is going on in science includes not just a few turf war struggles but even a couple outright battles. Amit assures us these new developments make it apparent we have scientific materialism “On the run”.
Will we move forward in science to include consciousness and the ever expanding and informative revolution of post materialist science? Or will they manage to cut themselves and us all off from the source of discovery? Preferring instead the comfort of cronyism and status quo scientific materialism? In the end the choice is ours. Will we grow and thrive or will we stay in a world view filled with paradoxes? Ones that prove the inadequacy simply to maintain the discomfort of thinking a thought we had never encountered before?
It’s up to us. There is a revolution going on in science.
