We may have just, for the first time ever, caught a momentous glimpse of a parallel universe bumping against our own.

Scientists say that signals from the furthest reaches of space suggest that the fabric of our universe is being disrupted by another universe. The discovery could provide proof of the multiverse theory, which says that there are many alternate universes.

Dr. Ranga-Ram Chary, a researcher at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, examined data from the cosmic microwave background gathered by the European Space Agency’s Planck Space Telescope. Within this glow left over from the moments after the Big Bang, he discovered a number of spots where the microwave light was far brighter than it should be. He claims that theses may be signals caused by the interaction between our universe and another one a few hundred thousand years after the Big Bang around 13.8 billion years ago.

The existence of multiple universes – a multiverse – has been considered scientifically plausible. If all these universes emerged from the same Big Bang, then they’re likely sitting together in a row, vibrating. According to the theory, if these universes touch one another, the resulting collision would leave some sort of evidence. According to New Scientist, which first reported the Dr. Chary’s research, this is akin to two bubbles bumping into each other. These so-called “bubble universes”, which are expanding within the multiverse, bumped into each other as they expanded after the Big Bang, leaving an imprint on each other’s outer surface.

Dr. Chary says the signals he has seen suggest the alternate universe may be very different from our own. He says it could have a ratio of subatomic particles called baryons and photons that is about ten times greater than what we see in our own universe. This would mean that the physics in this alternate universe could be quite different from our own.

Dr. Chary explained, “The fine tuning of parameters in the early universe required to reproduce our present day universe suggests that our universe may simply be a region within an eternally inflating super-region. Many other regions beyond our observable universe would exist with each such region governed by a different set of physical parameters than the ones we have measured for our universe.”

Dr. Chary came to his conclusions by using models of the cosmic microwave background and subtracting it from Planck’s pictures of the entire sky. He then removed signals from the stars, gas and dust. With all these removed, all that should have been visible in the images was noise. However, Dr. Chary reports that instead he found scattered patches that were 4,500 times brighter than they should have been. They are thought to come from an era in the universe’s evolution known as recombination, when electrons and protons first combined to create hydrogen. This era has a distinctive spectrum of color due to the limited number of atoms around, and hence has a unique appearance and anomalies can be easily spotted.

Dr. Chary wrote, “The implication is that collision of our Universe with an alternate Universe that has a higher baryon density is responsible for the enhanced recombination line signature.”

Other astronomers are very excited about his findings. Dr. Jens Chluba, an astronomer at the University of Cambridge, told New Scientist, “To explain the signals that Dr. Chary found with the cosmological recombination radiation, one needs a large enhancement in the number of (other particles) relative to photons. In the realm of alternative universes, this is entirely possible.”

The discovery of another universe would be earth-shattering. Excitingly, further study of this possible parallel universe may be possible very soon through NASA’s PIXIE, the Primordial Inflation Explorer whose instruments could more accurately observe and analyze Chary’s light signals and procure more data about cosmic inflation. Scientists at Goddard Space Flight Center are looking for funding for PIXIE, however that funding might not be awarded till the end of 2016.

NewsHour   –   Scientists at CERN Say They Plan to Make Contact with
Parallel Universe in Days   –    10-22-15

The staggeringly complex LHC ‘atom smasher’ at the CERN centre in Geneva, Switzerland, will be fired up to its highest energy levels ever in a bid to detect – or even create – miniature black holes.

If successful a completely new universe will be revealed – rewriting not only the physics books but the philosophy books too.

It is even possible that gravity from our own universe may ‘leak’ into this parallel universe, scientists at the LHC say.

The experiment is sure to inflame alarmist critics of the LHC, many of whom initially warned the high energy particle collider would spell the end of our universe with the creation a black hole of its own.

But so far Geneva remains intact and comfortably outside the event horizon.

Indeed the LHC has been spectacularly successful. First scientists proved the existence of the elusive Higgs boson ‘God particle’ – a key building block of the universe – and it is seemingly well on the way to nailing ‘dark matter’ – a previously undetectable theoretical possibility that is now thought to make up the majority of matter in the universe.

But next week’s experiment is considered to be a game changer.

Mir Faizal, one of the three-strong team of physicists behind the experiment, said: “Just as many parallel sheets of paper, which are two dimensional objects [breadth and length] can exist in a third dimension [height], parallel universes can also exist in higher dimensions.

“We predict that gravity can leak into extra dimensions, and if it does, then miniature black holes can be produced at the LHC.

“Normally, when people think of the multiverse, they think of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, where every possibility is actualised.

“This cannot be tested and so it is philosophy and not science.

“This is not what we mean by parallel universes. What we mean is real universes in extra dimensions.

“As gravity can flow out of our universe into the extra dimensions, such a model can be tested by the detection of mini black holes at the LHC.
 “We have calculated the energy at which we expect to detect these mini black holes in ‘gravity’s rainbow’ [a new scientific theory].

“If we do detect mini black holes at this energy, then we will know that both gravity’s rainbow and extra dimensions are correct.”

When the LHC is fired up the energy is measured in Tera electron volts – a TeV is 1,000,000,000,000, or one trillion, electron Volts

So far, the LHC has searched for mini black holes at energy levels below 5.3 TeV.
But the latest study says this is too low.

Instead, the model predicts that black holes may form at energy levels of at least 9.5 TeV in six dimensions and 11.9 TeV in 10 dimensions.

Tiara Kumara – Tap into the Same Power that Drives the Entire Universe – 10-11-15

Open the Seal of Coherence and learn how to tap into the same power that drives the entire universe.

What is Coherence?

In the program of MORPHOGENESIS, coherence refers to states of awakened consciousness that are in congruence with the new race genetics and a more intelligently created physical reality.

This type of ‘holistic coherence’ implies harmony, interconnectivity and stabilized order, where the whole is greater and more efficient than the sum of its parts. This acknowledges a type of synergy, that, when individuals are connected together consciously, a new entity is created with much greater meaning and value.

As our consciousness continues to awaken, we unveil our natural ability to function in coherently connected states. This is like reforming an enlightened ‘global brain’. This gives us the ability to move peacefully in unison while being completely self-supportive.

*

HOW does Coherence serve us, practically speaking?

* Functioning from coherence builds a magnetic field of manifestation around you.
* Functioning from coherence raises you into the reality of your preference.
* Functioning from coherence dramatically accelerates your evolutionary advancement.

It opens you up to tap into the same power that drives the entire universe.

This is essentially a harmonic convergence of your personal energy into coherent states of ‘collective’ frequency, thereby accelerating you and all of us into the new reality of our preference. This occurs through your willingness to blend and integrate all the formerly segregated aspects of your consciousness into a unified whole.

Through the support of group fusion, we each become the pattern for the reality that we desire to experience for ourselves… and also to see manifest in our world. By placing our conscious attention upon this new reality, it will naturally accelerate in that direction. We are accelerating together, much more quickly and from our choice to be coherently connected.

Any way that your thoughts, visions and dreams reflect to you the awareness of being ‘coherently connected’ will be reflected in your outer world.

What is so exciting is that, through coherence, we can interact with other parallel realities and dimensional states. These ideas are addressed further in the program. I will add this… as a vast multidimensional being, you already exist on every level there is to exist upon, simultaneously. Therefore, the vibrational frequency of your particular reality preference will place you in whatever vibrational timeline to which you are most aligned.

As you gradually let go of all other non-preferred realities, you progress into more cohesive levels of divine coherence. This will eventually become the single most prevalent experience that you have as a reality on Earth. It will be a self-created reality that contains the things you identify with most strongly… and NOTHING else.

*

Life on Earth becomes ecstatic in each and every moment!

Through the increasing joy of living your life completely from the now moment, you create an opening for future intentions and all desired experiences to accelerate most quickly into your present experience.

This is referred to as the SHIFT, or, going through a ‘dimensional consciousness shift’.

You do not leave this reality; you ELEVATE your self above limiting perceptions. The supercharged bonus is…. that by unifying with others of ascending frequency, you learn to live in a new timeline of self-empowered inspiration.

*

This all begins through the idea of ‘coherently connected consciousness’.

If these ideas are striking a resonant chord within you, consider joining us in a real life experience of MORPHOGENESIS.

5 Signs We Exist In A Living Universe   –   by Peoples Trust Toronto –   10-10-15

Since the dawn of ages, throughout cultures and civilizations, there have always been those who were considered enlightened. Prophets, Messiahs, and Sages throughout history have been able to tap into the eternal energy of the universe, bringing forth ancient wisdom of the cosmos and creation and bestowing upon all who would listen the understanding of our very existence. Some were ridiculed and others were murdered for what seemed to be, at the time, irrational views.

Take for example Jesus Christ. He was known to be one of the most radical of enlightened masters in history. To onlookers, a man walking around telling everyone that he was the son of God would have seemed so irrational and ‘blasphemous’ that just speaking the words “I and my father we are one”  had already made him a prime subject for public scrutiny.

In the life and times of Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama), we understand that his teachings were very radical, in the sense that they did not fall into the mainstream of Buddhist regime. This lead to his closest disciples writing down accounts of his teachings and hiding away many of his direct works prior to Buddha being poisoned to death.

Thankfully, we are at the point in history where, through advancement of technology and scientific observation, we can finally bridge the gap between spiritual philosophy and scientific reality.

1. Galaxies Are Alike To A Human Brain

In a study released in 2012 in the journal Nature’s Scientific Reports, physicist Dmitri Krioukov of San Diego’s University in California found that, according to a computer simulation, the universe may grow like a brain. “Natural growth dynamics are the same for different real networks, like the Internet or the brain or social networks,” he explains. The study suggested that(1) fundamental laws may govern the growth of systems large and small, from the electrical firing between brain cells and growth of social networks to the expansion of galaxies.

2. Binary Codes

While working on the equations pertaining to the superstring theory – a scientific theory that aims to explain all the forces in nature through the vibration of theoretical strings — theoretical physicist James Gate Jr. at the University of Maryland discovered something very interesting: computer code. Yes, according to Gates there were patches of 0s (off) and 1s (on) embedded in the equations — a sort of pulsing binary code that runs our computers. What is interesting is that this leads us to understand that what we experience may just be the product of signals from a virtual reality generating computer network broadcasted by an entity from the edge of space.

Pao Chang, a spiritualist, thinks that our reality is, in fact, a mere illusion. In his book, entitled Staradigm, he presents an interesting take on how reality works:

The core structures of reality work similar to how a computer works. A computer communicates and operates through the use of binary codes, which are codes that consist of ones (on) and zeros (off). Binary codes are very simple but with the right combinations they can help computers create magnificent things.

3. Golden Ratio

The golden ratio has been found in pine cones, seashells, and even in Leonardo Davinci’s paintings, but in an exciting discovery by researchers at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, fractal patterns and golden ratio pulses were found to exist in stars. They made the discovery using the Kepler Space Telescope.  The researchers were studying a specific kind of star known as RR Lyrae variables that are unlike normal stars in that they expand and contract. With each expansion and contraction the star’s brightness increases and decreases dramatically, a process known as pulsing.

What the researchers found next was the most astonishing. The stars in the study have been found to be pulsating in accordance with the golden mean. This finding is the first time the golden ratio has even been identified in space. Although the sample of stars in this study was quite small, (3) the researchers noticed an intriguing pattern among the four stars with pulsation frequencies close to the golden ratio. Each of these stars exhibited fractal behaviour in a never-ending pattern that repeats on continuously smaller scales.

“That suggests there might be a pattern,” Linder says. “What we need is more data.” An example of a fractal is a jagged coastline, which reveals more and more wiggles in its outline as you zoom in from any vantage point. “It’s the same with the frequencies in these stars,” Linder says. “As we lower the threshold we see more and more frequencies.”

4. Time & Space Are An Illusion

5 Sweet and Simple Words: Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity.

Space and time are not independent variables in our universe but rather agglomerate into the space-time continuum. In essence, space is dependent upon time and time is dependent upon space, a concept which shatters our idea of a definite reality and the universality of time altogether. So, both space and time, in fact, turn out to be mere illusions dependent upon the spatial location and movement of nothing but the observer. Past, present, and future are not fixed but rather are just an accumulation of spatial variables.

5. Quantum Mechanics & The Double Slit Experiment

In the experiment, a beam of electrons fired through a slit and at a screen replicated a wave-like pattern instead of a material splatter.

However, more interestingly, when this same beam of electrons was observed, it behaved as something consisting of solids, meaning that the electron already had several probable quantum events before the observation took place. It could have bounced off the screen, passed from either slit, passed from both slits, or just went over the screen. These probabilities were represented by the wave. However, when an observation took place the wave collapsed into one material reality — meaning that any physical event is a product of nothing but observation!

According to Erwin Schrödinger, (2) every possible outcome of an event exists as a combinative wave form before this wave collapses into a material manifestation upon observation. The type of manifestation depends upon its probability and the point in the space-time continuum at which the observation is made.

In conclusion, we need to change the paradigm, from saying, “God created the universe,” to “God is the universe.”

We’ve all heard of alternate dimensions and universes. Many believe we are just a frequency away from an alternate existence. Still others claim that beings from other dimensions pop in and out of our world at will, somewhat like The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Now a story comes to us out of Spain about a woman who claims to have woken up one day to find her life and past had changed.  Unfortunately, she remembers a different reality than those who know her best.

Lerina García, a 41 year old, well educated professional opened her eyes one morning to discover she was in what she later assumed to be an alternate universe existence of her own life.

Garcia’s experience was related in 2008 when she made an effort to search for help on the Internet. Apparently it’s just now making the rounds in America.

Here’s here fascinating story translated from Spanish:

For anyone who is reading this blog regular will know that we have already written a few articles about parallel universes. As I write this article on an alleged case of a woman who she says is from another parallel universe. We do not know for sure if it is a Hoax or Bulo, but the story is interesting and that is what any of us could happen when least expected.

This story is transcribed for a forum where this woman named Gordo Lerina Garcia left a message for someone to help on 16/07/2008 18:38

Hello, my name is Luz, I have 41 years and I think I jumped into a parallel universe.

I find it hard to tell because everyone will think I’m a psychotic, and no one will believe me. Please, if anyone has had a similar experience to write me an email.

One day I woke up and everything was different, nothing spectacular, nothing to do with time travel and all that stuff, I just got up in the same year and the same day I went to bed but many things were different. It’s little things, but important enough to know that at one point there was a turning point in which things are different. In fact, if this is a dream you are all in a dream, as I write this there, so if someone replies is that you are living the same reality as me, be my dream or not.

4 months ago I woke up a normal morning, I was in my rental house where he lived for 7 years, everything was the same except that the set of sheets on my bed that was different, did not give importance at the moment. Well, my office was in my car which was parked where ever, and was the same office where I worked in the last 20 years. But when I got to my office was not my office, has the names on the door and mine was not. I thought I had the wrong floor, but no, it was mine. I got to my office wireless area and I looked, was still working there but was in another department reporting to a director who did not even know, I went to the office to mark the directory, I said I was sick and left. Everything in my portfolio was the same, my cards, my ID, all the same, but I do not remember having changed department at any time.

I went to medical insurance and they tested me for drugs and alcohol … .. everything clean. I went to work the next day, and asking, telling me not feeling well, well, I’ve been out of step.

My apartment is the same, all the same, I have watched all the papers that I keep in the house and everything is the same. Soon I realized that something was wrong I thought it was some kind of amnesia, as I had missed something and could not remember a time in my life, but no, I went online and was the day it should be, and news, at least cover important were the same as the previous day.

6 months ago I’m not with my partner of 7 years, we left and started a relationship with a guy in my neighborhood. I know him well, I’ve been 4 months with him and know his name, address, where he works as a child you have and where he is studying. Well, now there is this guy. It seems that existed before me ‘jump’ but now no trace, I hired a detective to look for it and there in this ‘flat’.

I went to a psychiatrist and attribute it to stress, believed to be hallucinations, but I know not. My ex-boyfriend is with me as usual, I’ve never left it seems, and Augustine (my boyfriend now) seems to never have existed here, it lives in the apartment where he lived nor find his son. I swear it’s real, I am very sane. My own family does not remember things as surgery on the shoulder of my sister a couple of months ago, have never operated, and little things like that.

Unfortunately I do not remember many important things in the news, but the rest of the world seems to be the same. There are many little things in the past five months and now many, nonsense, clothes on my closet and I have not bought, post on the blog of a radio program I had with my ex (which is still my boyfriend now) and I stopped to …. I do not know is nonsense but I’m really rope is real.

PLEASE if anyone has gone something like contact me, to see what could have happened, I find no pathology that matches what has happened to me. I’ve been five months reading all the theories I’ve found and I am convinced that she has been a leap between planes, anything, any decision, any action that has to change some things, which I ‘mosque’ is that it is in the year, and why I have not jumped to another time, I am exactly the same. To explain, it is as if he had lost his memory and 5 months ago I woke up having dreamed those 5 months, except that everyone remembers me at the time, and I’ve done things that I am not conscious of having done. Do you experience more?

Please refrain funny and people who have ‘the truth’ in his hand. It is very serious for me.

Here’s a similar story from Japan. A man flies into the country with what appears to be a valid passport only to find that nobody has heard of his country of origin.

A curious incident took place in Tokyo, Japan during the early 1990s: a man arrived on a flight with a passport from a non-existent country.

The man expressed anger and shock when Japanese customs officials detained him. Although the officials checked their records carefully, the passport had been issued by a country that did not exist. No record showed the country had ever existed.

Although passports exist issued by non-existent countries (known as camouflage passports), this passport was real and had custom officials’ stamps on various pages including stamps by Japanese customs officials from previous visits.

 

The man was well-traveled, Caucasian, said the country was in Europe and had existed for almost 1,000 years. He carried legal currency from several European countries, an international drivers license and spoke several languages.

Finally, indignant, he demanded a meeting with higher government authorities. He was convinced some massive practical joke was being played on him.

After being detained for almost 14 hours in a small security room at the airport terminal, some government officials took pity on him and transported him to a hotel. They ordered the mystery visitor to wait there until they decided what to do about the matter. From the reports, the Japanese were just as confused and flustered as the mysterious man without a country.

Although two immigration officials were posted with instructions not to permit the man to leave his room, the next morning the guards discovered he was gone. The only exit was the door they watched and the only window had no outside ledge and was 15 stories above a busy downtown street.

The authorities launched an intensive manhunt throughout Tokyo for the mysterious traveler, but finally gave up the hunt.

The man was never seen again.

And finally a tale of vanishing where a man is seen walking to and entering his automobile at a busy University parking lot then disappearing into thin air.

Inexplicata relates a story that is like Lerina’s, except from the opposite point of view.

The original account was written by journalist Segundo Peña and published in one of Venezuela’s biggest newspapers, El Tiempo.

Peña relates a strange tale that smacks heavily of a multiverse shift. The incident occurred on the campus of ULA (the University of the Andes) and involved a well-known faculty member.

This is what happened in full daylight, according to dozens of witnesses: the professor left one of the university’s buildings, crossed a parking lot to his parked car, and entered it. Many saw him as he walked to his car, some even called out to him and waved.

The professor opened his car door, climbed in, sat down, and closed the door. The car sat there unmoving. Eventually, a few curious students went to the car and found it empty.

There are many accounts of alleged time travelers throughout history, one of the most recent is the story of John Titor that began on November 2, 2000 when a person claiming to be from the year 2036 burst upon the Interweb scene with his amazing tale of time travel. He took the strange news followers by storm and his story is still being debated over 10 years later.

So, what are we to think? Are these stories just fodder for the gullible? Mere tripe from tabloidian minds? Or is there something more going on?

In 1954 the term Parallel Universe was thrust into the mainstream by Hugh Everett III. Everett theorized that many related universes all exist in parallel, branching off of each other. Each universe has a similar origin but alternate time lines.

You can read about Everett and his parallel universe theory here.

This is heavy stuff to even get into but we need to have an open mind in cases such as this. There are so many questions that arise, to many to list in fact. However, I suppose we should start somewhere and I think it best to begin with the reader.

I would be very interested in the opinions formed by those who have pondered parallel universes, rips in the fabric of time and space, or any other related subject matter. Does our reality overlap a similar one just outside our realm of detection?

Is there anyone out there who can relate to one of the three stories above or have had a corresponding experience?

We all know how powerful the mind is and how dreams can manipulate reality. We also realize that there are those who suffer from mental illness but if we could suspend all of that and really consider the possibilities, where do we go next?

The largest structure of the observable universe found – a ring of galaxies five million light years across   –   8-10-15

http://thewatchers.adorraeli.com/2015/08/10/the-largest-structure-of-the-observable-universe-found-a-ring-of-galaxies-five-million-light-years-across/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+adorraeli%2FtsEq+%28The+Watchers+-+watching+the+world+evolve+and+transform%29

A Hungarian-US team of astronomers have found what may be the largest structure in the observable universe, a circular ring of nine gamma ray bursts and hence nine galaxies that stretches five billion light years across.

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the most luminous events in the observable universe. These events occur when massive stars in a galaxy collapse into black holes. Astronomers have used these GRBs to locate and map the locations of their distant host galaxies. Such bursts are cataloged in the Gamma Ray Burst Online Index, a precise listing of burst distances and locations, creating a cosmic map.

Using a number of space-based and Earth-based observatories, U.S. and Hungarian scientists detected the ring’s galaxies – all at roughly the same distance from our planet, about seven billion light years away – using gamma ray bursts.The scientists, led by Professor Lajos Balazs of Konkoly Observatory in Budapest, report their work in a paper in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

The galaxies are in a circle that takes up 36 degrees of the sky – 70 times the diameter of the moon when it’s full – which suggests the ring is at least five billion light years across.

According to the Cosmological Principle, a cosmological structure could be up to 1.2 billion light years across. The new discovery challenges this theory as the cosmic ring found is nearly five times as big. According to Professor Balazs there is only a 1 in 20,000 probability of the GRBs being in this distribution randomly.

In the voice of the researchers, “If the ring represents a real spatial structure, then it has to be seen nearly face-on because of the small variations of GRB distances around the object’s center. The ring could though instead be a projection of a sphere, where the GRBs all occurred within a 250 million year period, a short timescale compared with the age of the universe.”

The team now wants to know more about the ring. They have no clear idea how the ring came into existence. Many models of the observable universe have predicted voids and string like formations. However, the newly discovered ring is larger any other void discovered previously.  Prof Balazs comments: “If we are right, this structure contradicts the current models of the universe. It was a huge surprise to find something this big – and we still don’t quite understand how it came to exist at all.”

Knowledge regarding how the ring came into existence may approve of theories on the evolutions of galaxies. However, in the opposite circumstance, the astronomers may have to revise their theories. The team aims at finding out the truth.
