Re: Theos-World Theosophy and Science

Unfortunately, the advanced technology that follows the leading edge of new
scientific discoveries that have any relationship to the fundamental energies
of interest to theosophy, are mostly under the control of the government...
Whose primary interest in the face of their current world views and concerns,
are military applications, followed by the vast economic potentials for those
who supply the weapons of war, as well as the communications, defense
materials, record keeping, and control systems necessary to carry out
worldwide military operations and protect the lives of soldiers in the field
-- among other military considerations. Also, most of these products also
have potential civilian applications of great economic value. Thus, in the
face of the nature of the military as well as the political mind, the
exigencies of their work, as well as the eventual economic considerations,
along with the plums of material gain that are held out for the successful
civilian application of their discoveries and inventions -- ethical
considerations have to be put aside by the government and military leaders,
as well as the technologists who work on these advanced scientific and
On the other hand, the theoretical and experimental scientists who discover
the fundamental theories that stand behind these technologies, are for the
most part highly ethical and moral in their private lives, but do not let
these considerations effect their thoughts or interfere with their work as
they unfold the secrets of nature in their perennial search for ultimate
truths (and/or potential fame and gain from their discoveries) without being
inhibited by the possible harmful applications of their work. There are also
many scientists -- while fairly religious, and even theosophical thinkers, as
Einstein, and many of his colleagues and followers were -- who still cannot
control the applications of their theoretical work, even though they decry
the possible misuse of their discoveries for non ethical or immoral purposes.
All they can do is warn us of the possible consequences or dangers, as
Einstein did in his later writings... (Even though he was the one who was
impelled by Leo Szilard to inform President Roosevelt of the Nazis' search
for atomic weaponry based on their theories, that led the US toward
developing the A-bomb.)
So, there's a fine line to be drawn between those who use science
intentionally for nefarious or unethical purposes, and those who use it for
what appears to be good purposes in the face of their world concerns. But,
even those applications may cause harm (or "collateral damage") -- as well as
save lives in the defense of their family, friends, or countrymen. It's hard
to say, then, what constitutes the ethical and moral use of science and its
resultant technology -- in the face of these disparate concerns on all levels
of government, defense and economics -- that, ostensibly, as they see it in
their limited views, contribute to the well being of the majority of people.
Unfortunately, the concerns of the leaders of countries, don't always
correspond with the needs of the people (as contrasted with their "wants").
Vide, the continued use of fossil fuel as a source of energy required by
almost all scientifically based technologies, that causes pollution and
damage to living beings as well as to the ecology of the Earth's biosphere.
This can only change, when science and theosophy become merged into one
"Gupta Vidya" or Grand Unified Theory of Everything (including consciousness)
-- that all mankind can accept as the only truth necessary to govern both
their personal and communal lives on Earth.
Referring to the many scientists and engineers who worked successfully on the
first Atomic bombs during WW II, many of them were quite disturbed by the
application of their work in destroying so many lives at Hiroshima and
Nagasaki -- But, their mitigation was that so many more lives of their own
countrymen were saved by not having to face a costly invasion of Japan.
This, of course, doesn't reduce the moral responsibility for so many lost
lives... And, some scientists went through difficult emotional problems,
depressions and nervous breakdowns after the war ended.
For example, one of my close friends, Dr. Sebastian Perchion, a nuclear
physicist and engineer who was instrumental in designing the trigger
mechanism on the initial A-bomb, had a nervous breakdown soon after
Hiroshima. And, after three years in a Trappist monastery doing penance, he
went to Nepal following in the footsteps of another disallusioned scientist,
Richard Alpert (Baba Ram Dass) and became a Llama of the Ningmapa sect of
Tibetan Buddhism. Returning to the US, after several years in a Tibetan
monastery, besides changing his profession to become a nuclear biologist
(like Leo Szilard) he studied theosophy in depth for over a year (orally,
through me, as a "reader" and interpreter of the SD, since he was semi-blind
as a result of the flash of the Alamagordo "Trinity" test bomb) -- and later,
based on this study, became my collaborator in helping correlate the ABC
theory with modern relativity, quantum and string theories. During this
period, he taught me the fundamentals of relativity, quantum and string
physics, with emphasis on the technological and engineering aspects which
aligned with my professional training as a chemical engineer along with a
strong background in physical chemistry coupled with electronic and
mechanical systems and industrial product design.
Unfortunately, Dr. Perchion died (in 1987) before completing the mathematics
necessary to justify the ABC theory as being, at least, analytically
consistent with all the other modern theories of physics. Since that time,
however, the mathematical developments of 10 dimensional Superstring theory
leading to the 11 dimensional M-brane synthesis, are finally beginning to
mathematically justify the ABC concept we envisioned as a direct scientific
interpretation of the theosophical Cosmogenesis theory of "coadunate but not
consubstantial" field involution and evolution -- as described symbolically
by HPB in the SD.
The difference in thinking however is that most M-brane theorists still look
at the their theoretical developmental problem from a materialistic or
reductive "particulate" point of view -- while ABC considers it from a
geometrical waveform "informational" direction -- giving the photon "field"
nature primacy over the electron "particle" nature as described by
conventional physics... Thus, allowing ABC to consider energy transformations
using coherent (laser) light transformed in a spiral-vortex pattern through
specialized crystalline structures, as well as to incorporate an explanation
of consciousness, perception and organic "life" energies as part of its
technological and theoretical, as well as its humanistic aspects.
Thus the ABC approach toward zero-point energy transformations are based on
inductive resonance processes acting between coadunate fields of
"information," similar to the "coenergetic" transformational "consciousness"
and "perceptive" processes in sentient beings (whether in wakeful or dream
states) that do not require any mechanical action or moving parts.
However, while most of the theoretical work is soon to be completed, none of
the "reduction to practice" of potential technologies related to healing,
ecological damage repair, "free" non polluting energy, antigravity, space
drives, information storage, etc., has been carried out -- while my
colleagues and I have been and are still studying the potential
misapplications, and deciding how to avoid or divert them... Hopefully, to
prevent the mistakes made in the past (and present) with technologies
stemming from materialistic thinking and personal greed -- without prior
theosophical, karmic, and other ethical and moral considerations.
I hope this gives you some further food for thought, both from a
technological as well as a theosophical scientific point of view, with regard
to the future potentials of these new scientific "paradigms" that will begin
to be applied in the very near future -- whether through development of ABC
or through the current work in zero-point M-brane physics -- both of which
are in close agreement with theosophical principles and metaphysical
