A Shift in Consciousness In The World at the same moment! 12.12.12
Wasn’t saying it was magic at all.
To me, the ‘shift in consciousness’ is a label for a lot of other things that are observably happening. The increasing speed in the advancements in technology, a very populated planet (there are a lot of byproducts of this, genetically as well), and an increasing awareness of the dire circumstances the earth’s Eco-system is in. A merge and meeting in spiritual and scientific understanding is starting to sound more logical than crazy. All of these things are super new, and hitting us super fast–relative to even the most recent centuries in human history.
And the research done by Princeton for the last 25 years sure do provide some interesting results.
I’m not wishfully thinking or anything. Whatever is, is. I’m just saying that when you’re in a crowd of hundreds of really happy and excited people, you’ll feel really happy and excited. Mob mentality and group rage and all that too.
An organized group meditation is nothing to scoff at. Maybe it won’t accomplish what *some people think it will, but what harm is it doing? None. Personally, I’d like to participate in some silence and thought dedicated to the betterment of humanity/the earth we live on.
Who cares if it works or not, it’s the thought that counts right? Hahaha
@jeslyntweedie, I did say that I was using that word lightly. :) People jump through hoops to make QM “magically” prove their claims,
Did you read the second link I posted in my last post? I’ll post it again. People should be free to gather, I have no issue with that. Despite whatever views you may hold personally, the general idea made in the OP and sources you gave is rooted in the “law of attraction.”

I have no intentions on stopping people from gathering, I just have an issue with bad reasoning.
Is there a link that I can share with other people? Is there a specific time or duration or a set of topics that should be focused? Thank you. :)
Found the link!
It has already been 12/12/12 12:12pm here in New Zealand. I missed it I was at work.
And sometimes, bad reasoning can be deemed as taking in information in a finite matter.
I said it provided interesting results. I never said they were conclusive, and that article does more to detract credibility, than to disprove anything.
It’s like a dissertation for a doctorate. So many people have the tendency to just tear apart other people’s works than provide original ideas of their own. Rookie mistake, and in the case of you using that link as proof against anything–a little misleading.
Nobody has proved or disproved much in this area. It’s best to just accept that we probably only know a tiny pitiful percentage of anything at all about anything.
I’m just saying, you seem to think you know a lot. Be careful of limiting yourself. I’m not dissing skepticism either. Skepticism is needed, to a point–when venturing down any sort of unknown.
A balance between skepticism and belief, and also in the background knowing that neither lens is correct. Use all 3 of those, and walk the middle. :)
@jeslyntweedie, skeptics should be open to new evidence. They shouldn’t reject it outright, but they also shouldn’t be so leaky-headed that they accept anything as truth. The point of the links I gave you is that claims like “law of attraction” or “universal consciousness” are quite bold in the face of modern science. The links I gave you also don’t completely disprove them: they just remind the readers that there’s no reliable evidence to add much weight to those claims. That’s not to say they’re impossible, but “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”
And I agree with that. I just wasn’t making any claims in the first place. Just commenting and sharing what my own plans were. The only one I was making really was defending people from being scoffed at for their beliefs, whatever they may be. Especially if those beliefs are optimistic about the human race. Why not?
I choose optimism and skepticism together. It’s pretty satisfying.
Neuroscience is proving and affirming things Buddha hinted at 25,000 years ago. It took 25,000 years for science to catch up enough where it could observe the brain in a way to be ‘extraordinary evidence’.
You just never know. That’s all.
@jeslyntweedie, I hoped that I had made the target of most of my criticisms obvious with:
~Despite whatever views you may hold personally, the general idea made in the OP and sources you gave is rooted in the “law of attraction.”~
You made it clear in your first post that you didn’t necessarily believe all of this, but what I said in my first response to you still stands: the support the double slit experiment may give to the Princeton group is tenuous at best.
When I criticize a person’s arguments they are not personal attacks (not that you said they were). If you’re involved in certain things like I am, you’re most likely used to defending your arguments and evaluating the arguments of others. It’s like a mental exercise meant to keep us on our toes. If a person makes their claims known they should be receptive to constructive criticism, but by no means does that give a person the right to send personal attacks their way.
In any future discussions that we may have, just let me know if you want me to take it (the “mental exercise” I mentioned) down a notch.
I just want to say that it was 11/11/11 11:11:11 last year.
And 10/10/10 10:10:10 before that.
And in fact it is 12/12/2012 this year…
But I will admit. My name on here is Jesus Christ. It IS my birthday tomorrow. And I will be having so much fun because of it that you will all transcend into a new plane of perception that I will bring all of you to. Aka heaven. It has a lot of mead up there, so grab your pints!
@ijesuschrist, I’m saving my debauchery for the 21st, but please please please get absolutely shitfaced tomorrow, being born on 12/12 is fairly unique in itself, but being able to celebrate your birthday in on 12/12/12 is unreal.
@shivvy, WELL YA GAT DAM TALKED ME INTO IT!
@ijesuschrist, Missions accomplished. What substances you planning on taking tomorrow?
Happy 12/12/12 and Happy Birthday to us!!! :D
@jeslyntweedie I like your point about science barely catching up to to Buddhism, imagine if we actually study Buddha’s words like Newton and Galileo in modern Physics. The science of Buddhism :)
Glad i did the meditation,definitely feel even better ,how does every one else feel today :)
i dont see any shift FFS
@easytobe, Same here.
It has been said that thought is energy. Once our thoughts leave our bodies they are caught in a web of other thoughts constantly colliding, sticking together, growing, and eventually creating. Energy can create matter. I believe that people thinking the same all over the world can actually change the world. I’m in.
I think this is a guided meditation so that everyones on the same page, awareness wise
I will be joining =) 20mins to go
OMG I FEEL TEH SHIFT, I ARE ENLIGHTENED :D
