SAND – Science and Nonduality Conference,
October 22-27, 2014 – San José, California, USA
After attending the SAND conference we have been very busy continuing our work on The Ontology of the Cosmic Worldview. Therefore we will just present some glimpses from this very inspiring conference where approximately 800 people from all over the world gathered to exchange ideas about the New Paradigm!
Science & Nonduality “SAND” was started in 2008 by Maurizio and Zaya Benazzo; two highly creative and enthusiastic pioneers whose interesting and important project grows with annual conferences and workshops.
The main theme for this year was
“The Entanglement of Life”
The presentation below is from the program (SAND website):
“Entanglement is one of the strangest parts of quantum mechanics — so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as “spooky action at a distance.” An entangled system shows a property that has been measured for the whole but not for parts. For instance, we may know that the sum of the spins of a pair of two particles is zero, but neither of them is in a definite state (a condition referred to as superposition), particle until one is measured, causing the other particle to assume the opposite state. The effect is instantaneous, even if the two particles reside on opposite ends of the universe.*
Curiously, when science drills down into the core of even the most solid-looking object, separateness dissolves, and all that remain are relationships extending throughout, and possibly beyond, space and time, revealing a deeper reality which evokes what sages from all ages and traditions have been describing as one substance — call it consciousness, call it energy — comprising all the universe and giving rise to all appearances.
When we begin to explore the fabric of reality either through the lens of science or through the lens of spirituality, a deeper understanding and experience of what we call reality emerges as infinite, ever present, interconnected whole.” Science & Nonduality – SAND
*Note: In this connection we especially refer to “Physics, Martinus Cosmology and The Theory of Everything – The Fundamental Energy Theory FET“ by Leif Pettersson.
NCP X-AIONS contributed with a lecture and poster presented by Steen Loeth and Arnold Therner, abstract summary and links to presentations below:
The X-Structure; the Basic Nature of Existence including the Structure of Entanglement
Reality fundamentally, is immaterial emptiness and stillness. The X-structure constitutes the basic nature of Life and Reality – activating and transforming the emptiness and stillness into energy, force, movement, matter and life-experience/consciousness.
The primordial domain of existence “X0” is an all-embracing unmanifested, virtual world of emptiness and stillness, containing infinite potential of creative possibilities and continuously activating an indivisible, integrated, triune operating principle with three functional aspects: X1 creator and experiencer (the subject/I, emptiness, stillness); X2 creative and experiential ability (energy); X3 the created and experienced (movement, the material illusion, life-experience/consciousness). X2 is expressed by seven extremely subtle qualitative “fundamental/basic energies” with specific characteristics. These basic energies build up everything from the most subtle (consciousness, thoughts, feelings, memories…) to the very densest (physical matter, black holes…).
The primary fundamental energy operates via a number of so-called creative principles – morphogenetic effect constants; formative forces that sustain and organize life and reality. We can empirically observe the effects of these morphogenetic effect constants in the laws of nature. The X2-function and its effect constants “split up” the all-embracing totality (X0), i.e. the status of nonduality and nonlocality, the nature of infinity and eternity is divided and separated into life-units, individuals, as well as states, distances, space, time, etc. The complementarity of wholeness/oneness and duality/separation, and “the structure of entanglement” are formed and expressed through the morphogenetic effect constants (X2).
The X-structure is based on the intuitive knowledge illustrating the Cosmic Worldview conveyed by the Danish intuitive philosopher, mystic Martinus Thomsen – especially presented by his collaborator Per Bruus-Jensen and “the X-project” by NCP X-AIONS, Advanced Institute of Ontological Principles and New Science, researching the Ontology of the Cosmic Worldview and presenting New Science, www.newcosmicparadigm.org
