Week of January 26th, 2009

There’s much, or not much I can write about this week that others have covered so well. Since this ezine’s main focus is supposed to be science, science-fiction and esoterica, I feel I should write more about those topics than I do.

So after a small amount of research, I’ve come across some science items that could also be considered esoteric, if one was inclined to believe so.

From livescience , scientists are improving the quantum entanglement method to the point where they can actually transport/teleport atoms faster than the speed of light.

This is interesting because this violates the bedrock tenet of our physics, Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity , which proclaims that mass can approach the speed of light, but not attain or surpass it. Stay tuned for this.

The next example could be linked as a possible explanation for the UFO phenomenon is this post from Centauri Dreams , titled A Science Fictional Take on Being There . The premise is a thought experiment extrapolated from Seth Shostak’s post on Space.com about “…if aliens are more advanced than us, why would they travel here in physical spaceships?”

While I disagree with Shostak’s take that we’ll never develop a physical means of star travel and his continuous debunking of the UFO phenomenon without even entertaining the thought, he might have inspired a possible explanation for it. ( And above link )

Imagine that.

Philosopher Nick Bostrum posited that our Universe, or “reality”, is an ancestor study virtual reality program being run by our post-human descendents. Very esoteric theory, n’est pas?

Now from our friends at New Scientist, there’s an article that suggests there’s actual empirical evidence supporting this; Our world may be a giant hologram.

If my descendents are watching me right now, all I can say is “Eat shit, kiss my hairy arse, bark at the moon” and “I hope you’re enjoying the show assholes!”

A-hem.

Finally, The Secret Sun’s site author Chris Knowles further explores his theme of study, Astronaut Theology, and its relationship with astronauts ( obviously ), movies, movie actors and the connections with ancient Egypts’ Shemsu Hor. Good stuff there if you’re a student of the esoteric and ancient history like I am.

In the meantime, I’m still ‘Tubeless at home, so I’m posting what I can, when I can. Hopefully, very soon that will be rectified.
