Borne of the Plasma Moment
Question: With all my talk about spirituality, oneness, and so on, why do I still have issues with anxiety, stress, tension, fears, etc.?
Theory: My atomic nervous system both forms my personality — the pretend self which interacts with the world, and houses my subatomic plasma self — the true being I am which exists before and after the body.
This nervous system came with some anomalies including Asperger's, misophonia, and high sensitivity — and those developmental issues cause anxiety, tension and stress which impede the plasma being from expressing itself fully through the body.
Living more from the plasma self and less from the personality, by means of breathwork, bodywork, and growing awareness, is the great work of this lifetime.
Nine months of living on the Azores has birthed in me a new view of the universe and of myself as a person. With the new view comes a whole new experience of and relationship with life.
In 1971, as a high school senior, I wrote in a prose titled 'The Universe is You',
What would it be like to be
an air bubble,
from the lake bottom
through the deep waters,
and rising above the surface to
then become one with the air
and mingle with the atmosphere
and course through the veins
of the winds?
This mental picture became for me a metaphor in later years, after realizing I am a subatomic plasma being ('spirit') captured in a coalesced atomic ('physical') body for a lifetime — something like air captured in a bubble.
I am here to consciously participate in the advancement of the earth project, a rare atomic planet in a subatomic plasma universe. What felt far away as abstract concepts of what is beyond the intellect and senses now feels closer, more tangible and real due to the book, 'A New Science.'
Questions remain of how to integrate more of the higher qualities (love for love itself, compassion, kindness and so on) and higher perspective of quantum plasma intelligence into my 'physical' experience.
In 2001, the psychic medium Barry Lee of Marbella, Andalusia said to me in session as a message from the spirit world that I 'have the ability to work with plasma' and 'need only find the right people' to work with me.
In 2008, on a walk in a forest near the German Baltic I encountered a stone labyrinth in a sheep pasture and while walking it daily heard by the inner voice that I would find the God of my lifelong search by looking into the atom.
In a dream vision of the night in 2012, I lifted off an unknown beach in an elliptical plasma sphere and attempted to navigate it. Nine years later, last November, a black sand beach tucked in a cove of the Azorean island where we currently live reminds me daily of the dream.
'A New Science of Heaven' came into my life last month. The following excerpts (in quotes) go with the key points (bulleted) to me from the book.
"Plasma is essentially made up of two subatomic particles: electrons that have a negative charge, and protons that have a positive charge and ions ('incomplete atoms'), which also have a positive charge.
"In whole atoms there is a balance between the negative and positive charges. 'Physical matter' is really atomic matter, because in order to be 'physical' it has to be made of whole atoms.... It is important to realize that ions are not considered to be physical matter and that they are charged.
"...we and all living things in the Universe, whether organic or inorganic, arise from this plasma... the organic state is secondary to our fundamental nature as plasma beings."
Robert Temple also explains in Chapter Five that there are different kinds of plasma, and 'dusty complex plasma' has a highly ordered crystalline structure.
"...the Universe filled with a web of electrical impulses like a macrocosmic brain.
"...plasma regions whether large or small are routinely surrounded by closely fitting plasma sheaths, which are rather thin, and their edges do tend to be very sharp and highly defined."
A New Science of Heaven' speaks to me deeply. From my life events earlier mentioned, nothing much has developed in the 'physical' atomic world that I can see — but the book ties them together for me so they begin to make more useful sense of my relationship to the subatomic plasma spiritual realm.
I still look for people who can help me work with plasma, and to lift bodily from the earth in a plasma light sphere.
Thank you for hearing me.

'A New Science' Excerpts
1 Plasma has sometimes been called the fourth state of matter, after solid, liquid and gas, but finer even than gas.
We call the physical matter that is familiar to us 'atomic matter' because it is made of whole atoms, whereas plasma can also be described as non-atomic or subatomic matter.
Plasma is very familiar to us even though we may not realize it, for the Sun is entirely composed of plasma, and the stars are plasma too.
Plasma also manifests itself in lightning, including ball lightning and other mysterious phenomena we will examine later. But plasma is otherwise and for the most part invisible, and we will be going into that unseen aspect of plasma a great deal as we go along....
2 This matters because, as I will show, there are good reasons to believe that plasma, with its ordering properties, can in certain circumstances be in some sense alive and can evolve intelligence.
Because plasma is made up of charged subatomic particles, it is volatile and displays a tendency to form complex, constantly evolving patterns. This is particularly true of discrete bundles of plasma that we will call plasmoids, such as the Kordylewski Clouds. (What a plasmoid is will be explained fully later.)
3 Though this may surprise or even shock many readers, who may find this implausible on the face of it, l will also show that nearly all scientists in the field believe that the Universe is more than 99 per cent made of plasma although this too has not yet filtered down to the general reading public.
And if the Kordylewski plasma clouds are examples of an inorganic life that has existed for billions of years, they may, as I hope to show, have had a role in forming this planet throughout its long cosmic history. They may even have helped create organic life.
Clearly these ideas taken together open up vast new and very fruitful areas for speculation on the origins of the cosmos and the role of intelligence within it.
In fact, I will be arguing that life in its basic state is inorganic, and is not made out of atomic matter. I suggest that it is made out of pre-atomic matter, namely the atomic particles, electrons and protons, and ions plasma.
4 Thus, I am suggesting that we and all living things in the Universe, whether organic or inorganic, arise from this plasma, and that the organic state is secondary to our fundamental nature as plasma beings.
I believe that we can now start to articulate 'a new science of heaven'. That is what this book is about, and that is what I propose to do. I will also show that as well as being very new, these ideas are also in another sense very old; ancient religions and philosophers in the classical world including Aristotle formulated very similar ones.
They might not have been able to apply mathematical measurement to assess the levels of complexity necessary for life and intelligence that modern physicists can now apply, but a shift in perspective caused by the new physics of plasma will cause us to reassess many ways of understanding the world previously dismissed as discredited or even cranky.
5 I will not enter into theological discussions and will confine myself to the new science, with the exception of a brief historical review in Chapter 6 of some early religious texts that have relevance to our subject. I believe that much of what we have previously called spiritual is really plasma, and that it exists all around us and in us.
Many spiritual experiences reported throughout human history are really encounters with plasma phenomena or plasma entities. What does this mean for religions? I believe it leaves them all untouched. My primary purpose is to reconcile the 'spiritual' with the 'material', and thereby to show that the dispute between them is false. There is in fact no contradiction between them when one digests the teachings of the New Science.
6 Not all dust contains atoms, but that will have to be explained later, when I tell how plasma makes its own dust of itself. Plasma is essentially made up of two subatomic particles: electrons that have a negative charge, and protons that have a positive charge and ions ('incomplete atoms'), which also have a positive charge.
In whole atoms there is a balance between the negative and positive charges. 'Physical matter' is really atomic matter, because in order to be 'physical' it has to be made of whole atoms.
However, an atom can be turned into an ion by the simple means of stripping it of one of its electrons. It is important to realize that ions are not considered to be physical matter and that they are charged.
And to give some idea of the relative sizes, it is usual for a charged dust particle to have 10,000 electrons sticking to its surface. Because protons are larger than electrons, they do not stick to dust particles in quite so high numbers.
7 Contrary to what we might assume, living as we do in a material world, particles only very rarely come together to form whole atoms, and non-atomic plasma is the main constituent of the Universe -- more than 99 per cent of it.
As I say, we will see shortly why scientists think this, but the important point here is that from this perspective atomic matter is exceptional, and hard, rocky planets are very rare indeed.
It is because there is more plasma than there is atomic matter that I view ions, protons, and electrons as primary, and whole atoms as secondary. This way of looking at things will, I hope...
8 It is important to bear non-linearity in mind, because it is a feature of quantum mechanical super computers now in development, and analogy with these will play a part in arguments later in the book to show that these clouds may be highly intelligent.
Quantum computers break their information down into a different kind of bit, now called 'qubits'. (The 'qu' stands for 'quantum'.) Because quantum theory is a bit weird, a qubit can have the values of 0 and 1 at the same time....
9 Today we call matter in this fourth state 'plasma', the name given to it by the American scientist Irving Langmuir (1881-1957), who would win the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1932.
He coined the word because the way a charged gas carries electrons and ions reminded him of the way blood carries red and white corpuscles, so the plasma seemed to him to be 'alive'.
His historic introduction of 'plasma' as a new word in physical science appeared in print for the very first time together with the word 'sheaths' for the 'skins' of plasmas in an article entitled 'Oscillations in Ionized Gases', which was published in August of 1928 in a scientific journal, where he wrote these memorable words:
The word 'plasma' will be used to designate that portion of an arc-type discharge in which the densities of ions and electrons are high but substantially equal. It embraces the whole space not occupied by 'sheaths'
10 Since Isaac Newton (1643-1727), science and the world had moved towards a material mechanical view of the Universe, picturing solid objects in dead and empty space, held in orbit by gravity. It was a picture to inspire a certain cold wonder, perhaps; gravity was king here.
Then Birkeland discovered that electric currents travelling from the Sun were entering Earth's atmosphere. This was a profound and important mystery because electricity can't cross empty space.
It would be another forty years before two scientific geniuses solved this mystery and began to build up a picture of the Universe filled with a web of electrical impulses like a macrocosmic brain.
11 ...an electric field. At this point, I should pause to admit that although scientific talk on these matters is confident and well-established by custom, it is often hemmed in by ignorance.
For example, we don't really know what fields are, but we talk about them nevertheless, until we find some other way of discussing them.
We tend to believe that electric fields are spiral waves. So we have charged particles called electrons (assuming it is a negatively charged electric current, rather than a positively charged one consisting of protons and ions) spiralling along, pushed by something we call 'an electric field', though we don't know what that is, or what charge is either.
But to return to the questions of how a Birkeland Current is formed, we do know that electric fields are always perpendicular to magnetic fields. These currents flow as if along 'magnetic field lines', meaning they follow a direction laid out for them by a large pre-existing magnetic field.
12 This finding is, however, precisely what one would expect, because plasma regions whether large or small are routinely surrounded by closely fitting plasma sheaths, which are rather thin, and their edges do tend to be very sharp and highly defined, as we now know is the outer Van Allen Belt.
In other words, what continues to be discovered about the Van Allen Belts provides increasing evidence that they are standard plasma belts of the classic type. Our planet is thus the solid core of a vast plasma entity that surrounds it. We need to accept that the Van Allen Belts and the atmosphere are the Earth just as much as the solid core.
Our planet is more than solely a round ball in space....
