There is a point of usage which comes up in the content of the illustrative data I've used above. As the subconscious is always on and so is the physical universe, it behooves us with our (sometimes sleeping) conscious minds to expand our use of prayer and/or meditation to improve our lives.
The advice of Paul in Thessalonians I has its practical application: “Be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not scoff at prophesies, but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.” (1Th 5:15-21). (Or, simply: Live your prayer and trust, but verify.)
Through Tolle and Peale and others, developing a constant optimistic attitude creates changes in people's lives. It was noted by Silva Ultramind lecturers that some people actually continually operated at the alpha level, in other words, they were able to achieve a constant connection with the Universal Mind or Higher Intelligence. Michael Wickett, one of these lecturers, makes the statement, “Every thought is a prayer ... and all of these are answered.” So in working up these concepts, one finds that the world view one has, the belief-system so constructed, leads one to use or neglect the native abilities of thought. By working, as Tolle points out, in the level of constant bliss of the Now, one is able to then achieve a walking, living prayer state.
Further, testing all theories and looking for widespread applicability is a good approach to all new data down this line. While in this book I've covered multiple instances of various principles, none of these are useful unless they work for you personally. This doesn't absolve you of initially approaching these with “suspended disbelief”, since merely a tinge of self-doubt banishes all results with many of these principles. The key seems to be in examining your own belief-system and remove your own blocks and illogical data.
What one could do with this prayer-state really has no limits. There are many miracles on record both in the New Testament and more modernly with Christian Science and churches. I don't cover this angle of New Thought application, although the above “thunking” system could certainly be used to address these points.
A key point in New Thought is Panentheism, meaning the belief of God being within all things as well as without. As I've covered above with the quantum hologram being available to any individual for his/her use and improving his/her own life. “The Kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:21. Where such holographic universe is considered possible and applied as universally applicable, we can then understand how prayer/meditation could address this field from any individual and explain many things in the psychic arena which could not be explained before. As Huna has all knowledge accessible through the Amakua, the idea of a quantum hologram enables the physical science explanation of this concept. Where Silva, Dyer, Chopra and others all say you can access this field through simple meditation, as well it now becomes possible to explain how data from this field could be accessed by anyone.
Accessing this quantum hologram then gives a plausible explanation for Swedenborg's visions, as well as “Seth” and other channeled beings. Practically, we also have realistic explanation for visions of Heaven such as found in What Dreams May Come. Telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance and other Para-psychological talents can possibly be explained through comparative studies of quantum physics. Other abilities which are currently only available to a few psychics on a scattered basis might be able to be developed into a technology which could be trained to nearly anyone. Such development would also require a cross-over between science and religion, probably in some neutral ground such as metaphysics.Access to the Quantum Field and Its Applications
Access to this quantum field would also enable recovery of data and enable cross-checking of data to bring proof to some theories (in both science and theology) while upsetting the apple cart in other areas. Some theories of the data available in this area don't only resolve the past, but also enable our access to the future. In the documentary “What the (Bleep) do We Know?” the application of quantum physics is applied to real-world examples, in attempting to answer the titled question. Practically, many of the Newtonian-world basics do not hold consistently in quantum physics experiments and results. As covered in the Institute of Noetic Sciences' WTB Study Guide for that film, scientists Radin and Braud separately came up with theories based on experimental results which showed that time sometimes flowed backwards, that perhaps the individual was warning him/herself about some distressing incident which was about to happen.
There are details and arguments about quantum physics which are far beyond the scope of this book. Here I bring some of these explanations in as other authors mention them. Since the quantum physics theories neatly align with traditional Huna and other ancient teachings, I conjecture that we are starting to reach a point where science and theology will merge, at least in part, in order to achieve a workable perception and understanding of our universe. While the arguments and paradigm warfare over quantum mechanics are far from over, we can start seeing that a merging between religious, psychic and scientific thought is necessary if we are to sort out an underlying system of thought which is universally applicable.
Huna has several methods to metaphorically approach this subject. One is creating a garden which represents the physical world around you. You simply ask to see a representation of what is troubling you and then handle it within this garden metaphor. You can also ask to talk to someone for advice, who will appear in your garden.
Napoleon Hill had a different approach, one of attending a meeting in his mind with several select historic and then current individuals. As he continued these nightly meetings, the individuals began taking on a life of their own, giving him advice he hadn't asked for. Some would stay later or come early to the meeting to talk with him alone. Hill began to profit immensely by this advice and later expanded this board meeting to include several dozen individuals. My take on this is that this was a metaphoric means of contacting the quantum hologram and filtering the data there through representatives.
Another approach would be to have an endless video library, where you could pull any given video down and just put it in to play it. One could also consider that one had a jukebox of such, which would play in random – giving the universe a chance to deliver what you wanted to see (as prompted by the unconscious).Fail-safe Protections to Mental Access
Such access looks to have a good set of fail-safe protections on them. Few have been able to receive this data. Those that have apparently currently fall under the auspices of “native talent.” However, with the above data, this might be able to be developed into a working technique. Remote Viewing has been developed into such a technique and has been used as recently as the first Gulf War, if not since. One of the key fail-safes is discussed by Silva and King is that one cannot directly or indirectly influence the life or decisions of someone else. You can offer your choice to them, make your sales pitch, and that's it. The person can accept your offer or not. Free Will, meaning the freedom of personal choice and decision, can't be altered.
Cults may be able to have influence on their devotees as they have walked them up a narrow gradient path of choices. They are called cults because they limit the information flow to their clients/devotees. Once a person is able to reason with additional data, the whole facade cracks and the person departs the cult and gets a new life. While some say that it can take as long as twelve years for a person to recover from such as cult involvement, application of the four-ways laid out above may give that person additional tools to sort out his/her beliefs more quickly. The reason is that now the person has a set of comparatives which is independent of the earlier accepted, emotionally-limiting cult data as well as those of society. (Certain cultures, by definition, are sociological cults both historically and modernly.) One can see that our Information Age, with its access to the Internet, has the inherent means of weakening cult influences and power – as well as those dictocrats who operate them.Some Interesting Conclusions
Practically, my development of this four-way “thunking” system is to compare these traditionally separate paradigms is a way to start to make sense of information which has had no real way to evaluate it.
While I have covered a great deal of works and material in this book by the way of illustration, this has been only as means of explaining the relations of this analytic engine. Different data input would give different output. The key here is that there is the possibility of a working system which functions independent of the data entered. Were this proved through several bodies of data entered, then the theory of a practical analytic engine (such as my four-way “thunking” system) could be proved. Were one to enter data in other physical sciences such as extreme electro-magnetic spectra which were studied by Tesla, or the orgone experiments of Wilhelm Reich, other results could be interpreted.
In this section, I've explored logical extrapolation of data I've used in the examples might lead to practical breakthroughs in applied metaphysics as well as various science fields. Certainly this gives some exercise in showing the use of this analytic engine.
I'd earlier talked about creating something which was a universal solvent. The answer to holding a universal solvent is to create the vessel from that same solvent. By holding evaluated data in thought principles rather than static data, analysis becomes more fluid and stronger, since the use of four-ways then forces comparison against more than one data simultaneously.
My use of this, as you can see by the data, has been to attempt to reconcile data I'd uncovered along the lines determining if there were factually evidence of an underlying system to my studies as a counselor, in religion, in computers, in the arts, and in agriculture. A summary of my research to this point is that I have found one system of thought as outlined above. This analytical engine (the four-way “thunking”) is a system in itself. Use of this system allows one to examine other data to find, prove, and utilize other whole systems. One can see by the various points which are stated as beyond the scope of this book that there is a lot of work lined up for further research.
What has been accomplished in this book is to give a general introduction to this analytic engine and to four-way “thunkings”. Some work has been done in tying varied lines of research and thought together in order to explain what individual authors haven't covered. Metaphysics, for instance, has in the sources above, the possibility of becoming as very much a “hard” science of widely applicable techniques. Were some of the cross-connected data pursued, metaphysics may very well be able to produce some breakthrough techniques to release abilities hitherto unknown and unsuspected.
Regardless, application of this above system might result in some very rapid paradigm shifts, which might make such an engine unpopular in more than one camp. That is not my particular concern. The point of this book is to publish the last few years' of work so that others can make use of this data.
Use of such an engine looks to possibly provide many innovative breakthroughs in a wide range of fields. It's my hope that such work can be extended and developed to solve some of the many problems and situations which face humankind in our era.
