Is Learning How to Expand Our Consciousness the Bridge to Build Between the Human Mind and AI?

For a long time, humans have wondered whether machines could eventually achieve consciousness or, whether artificial intelligence would ever reach a state of self-awareness.

The exact definition of AI is hotly debated and there are already many fantastic explanations of AI on the internet but broadly speaking, AI is advanced statistics and applied mathematics which harnesses new advances in computing power and the explosion of available data to give computers new powers of inference, recognition, choice and, eventually, possessing an awareness of its own consciousness.

Will future AI really be able to do so?

Well, the first thing that is important to understand is that all that exists, whether seen or unseen, when it is broken down into its simplest and most basic form of energy, consists of a rate of frequency.  To begin to comprehend the nature of Consciousness, and to directly experience an ‘Expanding Consciousness’ through increasing ones personal frequencies, one must go beyond flat linear thinking, thought addiction and stop accepting everything one has been told by others as fact and truth.

Will AI be able to train its own ‘mind’, step into the realm of direct cognition and higher sensory perceptual experiences what then allows it to perceive things as they really are and not what it, perhaps, wishes them to be?

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet” and this week I am speaking with  Partner & Trainer in accelerating thinking at Council for Human Development Swiss Association, Anna K. Hiltensberger and Founder, Director and CEO at Consciousness Coin, Kern Frost about how we can learn to expand our consciousness and if this is the future bridge to build between the human mind and AI?

Ghosts; Do They Hide in the Light?

By Maria Anna van Driel

A ghostly apparition walking through the wall, an odd shaped craft hovering in the sky or strong ripples on the surface of a lake indicating that there might be a sea monster swimming by… even though many people have seen and reported these rare but remarkable events, they do not have an explanation for what they have witnessed.

Are those, in the dark hiding, eerie shadows, truly disembodied humans who are lost or, is this an effect of Sleep Paralysis. 

Is walking through a forest at night only scary because we are breathing in these, released by the trees, small amounts of methane gas while the pineal gland in your brain is detecting the ultra– and infra sound-waves are bouncing off on the trees after it has released by your own body? Or is there something malevolent hiding behind the shrubs, waiting for you to become its prey?!

Hum, that is indeed a fascinating question. So, let’s imagine that we are standing in a forest with trees all around us. Odd as it might sound but these trees have the ability of releasing a kind of resonance what can ‘communicate’ with your personal frequencies which can turn into that infamous fear frequency sending shivers down your spine.

Did you know that trees have the capability of releasing CH4, aka methane gas? A gas some say is one of the sources of today’s global warming.

Not only do trees poop Methane, they also contain liquid crystal in which a piezo-electrical effect can be observed when encountering an ambience of bright light or a heat (electrical) source. Both of these source is what you are carrying when walking a dark forest…your flash light and your body what is now electrical charged by means of the mind is entering a fight-or-flight state.  

The small amounts of the odorless methane gas released by the trees around you might be just enough for you to see creepy plasma clouds forming containing photo-generated electrons which are brought together by a piezoelectric effect, dancing on the surface of natural piezoelectric (semi)conductors.

In neuroscience (or neurobiology) it is well known that the pineal gland becomes active, or is waking up so to speak, once its host is in a dark environment meaning, you being active during those hours of the day in where UV-light is not present in large amounts. Walking this darkness means that you can’t rely on your eyesight anymore what converts your body into a biological radar devise emitting sound-waves in order not to bump into anything or, to survive any dangerous situations heading your direction with high speed.

These ultra- and infra sound-waves your body is emitting, are bouncing off on the objects in your surrounding and, sometimes, have a behavior of returning back to you as a relativistic microwave and creating this chilling feeling of static electricity

You, now acting as a human radar devise, breathing small amounts of odorless methane gas as well as sensing the vibrations of the trees and returning microwaves, which are communicating with your brain, have resulted in a blood-curdling form of vivid hallucinations while it is being combined with a personal fear frequency based on creepy stories you once have read or watched via You Tube or Netflix.

Suddenly you are right in the middle of a spine-chilling situation what seems to be written by Alfred Hitchcock himself! This effect in sensing ‘things’ which seem to have no clear and visible source is based on inaudible to the ear sound-waves and chemical reactions and is one of the two ingredients of nature creating ghostly apparitions in a dark forest.

A second ingredient to create this blood-curdling effect falls in the range of an unnatural source. By means of an ambiance of LED light the liquid crystals inside the trees are triggered and create an effect of being elastic. Aka the expansion and shrinking of crystals what is giving them the ability to record and play vague but hearable sound effects and even create visible images.

Like a laser directed to a LP made of wood, LED-light can function similar to a laser, faint but not impossible.

Imagine walking through this dark forest while carrying a torch with LED-light … you will instantly understand which kind of effects this bright light source can create without your awareness.  Being focused on, for instance, a paranormal investigation and not on the, seemingly, logical reactions when certain elements are being brought together, a creepy surrounding containing real ghostly effects has being created unintentional which can scare the hell out of you when it is combined with your personal fears.

I am wondering, what will be the effect seen, or sensed, when we are we adding an extra element to this natural event…a stressed cellular memory?

A New Dutch Reiki Practice “Mystic Ways”

By guest writer Veronique Lamers

Click here and follow Veronique via her personal Face Book

Sitting outside in the sun with my laptop in front of me, I would like to write a couple of words concerning my Reiki Practice, which I hope to open very soon, and briefly tell you where my journey in Healing began. How it came about that I embraced it at already a young age.

Spiritual Healing runs in our family. My father used to put his hands on those areas where we felt physical pain. I remember me falling on my knee and my father was holding his hand over my knee and I felt the pain subsiding. This event had left a deep impression with me. Later in time I realized that I could do this myself as well but, at that point in my life, I didn’t know how to deal (work) with it in a correct and controlled manner.

As far as I can remember I always had a particular energy radiating from my hands what had a warm and tingling feeling. I even managed to make electric devices run wild or even create a malfunction. An ability what is not really useful if you go to a casino with your loved one and you set off  the alarm of a slot machine.

Anyway, the true reason I started to study Reiki-Ushi. was because of my husband. He has OPS, painter’s disease. This is a disease what is accompanied by a lot of headaches and physical limitations. Each time I put my hand on his head he start to feel calm and his pain reduced dramatically.  

I dove into the ancient knowledge of Reiki – Usui and started participating in those courses.

The last initiation, the 3rd degree, Masters, was given by a good friend what I experienced as very intense and special. During my Reiki courses I also created the business page “Mystic Ways” on Face Book.

At I first started with remote healings and healings which I carried out at the homes of my clients on a folding couch that I was carrying with me all the time. This way I was able to treat clients on a regularly base with a lot of love. This radiating love I always have send the client after a remote healing treatment as well.

Reiki is something what is woven in my heart and I really want to continue this. So, I have taken this exciting step to furnish a small but professional space in my home so that, once this terrifying virus, aka Covid, is reduced in its presence, I can receive people who will benefit from my spiritual healings.

Reiki is a long term learning process and I would love to gain the diploma of “magnetization” as well as more types of Reiki initiations. This way I can be even more present for those people who need it and at the same time continue to relieve my husband from those moments in where he experiences physical pains.

I hope to have given you a little insight into why I love doing this so much!

Lots of love, Veronique

Does Our Consciousness Holds the Key to a More Fulfilling Life on Every Level?

With philosopher, teacher and internationally renowned consciousness researcher, Justin Faermen

“Are you sure/That we are awake? It seems to me/That yet we sleep, we dream”

William Shakespeare, among others, already spoke about the different states of consciousness. Still, none have yet a clue what this state of mind truly is or, why we are in the possession of it.

Simply said, consciousness is “sentience of internal and/or external existence.” But despite millennia of analyses, definitions, explanations and debates by philosophers and scientists, consciousness remains a mysterious puzzle.

Is conscious the true reality? And if so, who is perceiving who? Are we perceiving consciousness or is consciousness perceiving us?

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”… and this week I am speaking with teacher, philosopher, internationally renowned consciousness researcher Justin Faerman … about what consciousness is, why we posses it and, how we can apply the knowledge received from our consciousness to our life and daily activities.

Does the Human Brain Serves as the Conduit for the Flow of Information from Alternate Realities?

With radio host, UFO investigator and author, Philip Kinsella

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of UFO-Researcher Philip Kinsella

We often wonder whether or not we are alone in this universe.  Pondering of the question, “If life arose relatively quickly on Earth, could it then be common in the universe?”

It is indeed promising,  hearing scientists say that some bodies in the Solar System have the potential for an environment in which extraterrestrial life can exist, particularly those with possible subsurface oceans.  

But what are the basic requirements for life? Could life have arisen outside the solar system? Perhaps thermodynamically, photosynthesis based on stellar radiation may be the optimal source of energy for extraterrestrial life to rise.

Many scientists search for bio-signatures within the Solar System by studying planetary surfaces and examining meteorites.  Some even claim to have identified evidence that microbial life has existed on Mars.   Still, the exact origin of life remains an unfathomable mystery, however this does not mean that it will always remains so.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”… and this week I am speaking with clairvoyant medium, UFO researcher and co-host of the radio show “Twin Souls”, Philip Kinsella…about, how likely is the evolution of intelligent life outside the borders of our cosmic freezer?

‘I have only been attacked by human spirits acting out as demons’, Dutch Demonologist says.

“Something here is inducing a tremendous fear into you.  You are living in a place that is giving you nightmares.  Then you wake up and whatever gave you this nightmare… is in bed with you!

It then takes you to where it’s from so that you can witness all the pain, suffering from all the people being killed in its cave. Within this horrifying moment you can do only one thing, trying to convince yourself you are experiencing a most vivid nightmare.“

What I just said listens to an eerie plot for a new horror movie but believe it or not, it is really happening and you are at the center of it. Or should I say…your peripheral vision is.

For decades, researchers have wondered how little light the human eye could actually detect and it turns out that one photon – the smallest unit of light — is enough to send a signal to the brain. The fact that a rod, or cone, can be stimulated by a single photon and pass a ‘message’ on to the brain does not mean that it will be…even if that photon happens to be in the visible frequency range and is travelling directly into the eye and onto the retina.

During these moments it seems to be a natural behavior for our brain to decide in filling-in the missing information in order for us to recognize and understand the shapes we see during the darkest moments of the night.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”… and this week I am speaking with Dutch demonologist and dimensional researcher, Ellen Poestkoke…about which dark, unknown, demonic forces are tapping on our shoulders in the dead of night.

Living with High Sensitivity in a Harsh and Demanding World

With Dutch Holistic therapist and dimensional researcher, Mary Willemsen

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of Holistic therapist Mary Willemsen

‘Flabbergasted’… that is how many high sensitive people react when watching people squeezing themselves into the most craziest positions while, for instance, pressing their fingers tightly to their Temple area.  Being at a young age, you might think that these people are trying to reduce a headache or maybe their hand-eye coordination is not communicating that well in that moment.  Not to mention the eerie look in their eyes what seems to come straight from the series “The Addams family”.   Odd as it might sound but these people want you to read their minds because you are a highly sensitive person.  

Highly Sensitive Person, or HSP, is a term coined by psychologist Elaine Aron. According to Aron’s theory, HSPs are a subset of the population who are high in a personality trait known as ‘sensory-processing sensitivity’, or SPS.  Those with high levels of SPS display increased emotional sensitivity, stronger reactivity to both external and internal stimuli—pain, hunger, light, and noise—and have a complex inner life.

Indeed, being a highly sensitive person can come with many challenges. But to label ones sensitivity as a disorder….?

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”… and this week I am speaking with  Mary Willemsen who is a holistic therapist and dimensional researcher from the Netherlands … about what it means to be a high sensitive person and…how to survive today’s harsh world.  Do you truly have to grow steel elbows?

What is dwelling beyond our Peripheral Vision

With the Co-founder and Team Medium of Paranormal Research York, Kevin Spindloe

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in the side bar ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to the TNT-Podcast interview of lightworker Kevin Spindloe

Science, so many state, has been a great destroyer of myth and superstition, but over time scientists have created new black boxes, aka a photo or film camera, which we are filling with our ghostly imaginations.

What also may surprise you is that scientific icons like Newton, Boyle, Edison and Einstein, and many others of similar standing, took reports of those phenomena occurring beyond the scope of normal scientific understanding, quite seriously.

Theology, philosophy, mythology and even physics when looking at Euclidean geometry, are offering surprising insights in the worlds of those spirits who are generally causing a ruckus in a household. But just because a candle falls off your mantel does not mean you have a clumsy demon in the house. It doesn’t even necessarily mean you have a poltergeist who has a crush on your new sneakers.

Still, even though many believe in the existence of ghosts, spirits, demons and angles, there is still a lot of confusion over what actually is lurking in these dim and elusive realms.

Some say, is a spirit, a ghost or even a demon that is throwing things around in your home. Others say it is only the manifestation of a person’s psychokinetic energy, or PK activity, that is acting out.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”.     This week I am welcoming back the Co-founder and Team Medium of Paranormal Research York from the United Kingdom Kevin Spindloe and talk with him about …  what it is that is dwelling beyond our peripheral vision.

An extra- or intra-dimensional entity like that of a poltergeist, or an alien, after all?

Does the Complex Symbolism in our Dreams Expose Our Darker Side?

With best-selling author and world-renowned dream expert, Jason M. DeBord

Listen to Jason M. DeBord’s podcast via You Tube or, via Stage 32

Analytical psychology is the name Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist, gave to his new “empirical science” of the psyche to distinguish it from Freud’s psychoanalytic theories as their seven year collaboration on psychoanalysis was drawing to an end between 1912 and 1913.

In Jungian psychology, the shadow (also known as id, shadow aspect, or shadow archetype) is either an unconscious aspect of the personality that the conscious ego does not identify as itself; or the entirety of the unconscious.

Click the ‘PLAY-BUTTON’ in the side bar ‘THE NEXT TRUTH…ONLINE RADIO’ on the right and listen to (part 1) of the TNT-Podcast of Jason M. DeBord. Or, download both part 1 &2 of his podcast below.

But even though these shadowy figures (malevolent or not) may appear in dreams and visions in various forms and sometimes overwhelms a person’s actions; for example, when the conscious mind is shocked, confused, or paralyzed by indecision  …Carl Jung stated the shadow to be the unknown dark side of the personality.

J.M. DeBord, aka “RadOwl,” is the author of three books about dreams including the best selling Dream Interpretation Dictionary. He explains this complex subject simply and easily and empowers readers to discover their innate abilities to know the meaning and significance of their dreams.

Jung also writes that if these shadowy projections remain hidden, “the projection-making factor then has a free hand and can realize its object—if it has one—or bring about some other situation characteristic of its power.” These projections insulate and harm individuals by acting as a constantly thickening veil of illusion between the ego and the real world.

For many, these scary shadows are disembodied humans who are lost; refusing to go toward the light.

For others, these shadowy figures are just a result of sleep paralysis.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet” and this week I am speaking with world-renowned dream expert and best-selling author of  4 books,  Jason M. DeBord. What do dreams reveal us about ourselves and…do they hold some clues about the future?

How to Work With Your Abilities as a Psychic Medium

With internationally-known professional Psychic Medium Tracy Farquhar

No one can deny that computers and electronics have revolutionized life on this planet and many serious researchers are claiming that some of this gadgetry can be useful in a quite unexpected way: to contact the dead … or at least to allow the dead to contact us.

Of course we are scared of them and even if we don’t believe in them, subconsciously we cannot ignore them.  But is our encounter with ghosts, or the dead,  only till the horror flicks or stories about them?  No!  Since ages we have been fascinated about the hereafter, what happens to us after we die and… in communicating with those who already crossed over just to know a little bit more about ‘their’ world.

Séances, Ouija Boards, Tarot cards…  attempts to communicate with the dead have been documented back to early human history and became quite popular in the 19th-century United States and the United Kingdom.

But if any of the methods for communicating with the dead work, why don’t we receive more convincing information from the other side?  Perhaps we are not allowed to get better information and… for whatever reason… perhaps the possibility of a life after death is supposed to remain a mystery.

I am your host Maria Anna van Driel… and you’re listening to “The Next Truth; Where Science and Myth Meet”,   and this week I am speaking with internationally-known,  professional psychic medium Tracy Farquhar about what it  means to be a psychic medium in the 21st century.
