Quantum Man, The Guided Missile




The Child Within Us Lives! A Synthesis of Science, Religion and Metaphysics
By William Samuel

INTRODUCTION 

QUANTUM MAN, THE GUIDED MISSILE

  Something enormous is soon to happen in the world; there is no sensitive person who doesn't feel this deeply. In every field—science, religion, philosophy, government, business, or whatever—a strange sense of disquiet is growing, a feeling of Something Imminent. As we look about us, we can see that the world is off course. Many who think they understand, point to drugs, overcrowding, pollution, the overload of information, corrupt government and any number of other possible causes. But what is happening now has a more significant and, as yet, undreamed of cause. The recognition of this deeper dimension comes with a solution for the world's problems! This book is about that.
  
If we think of mankind in quantum terms—as a single organism—we might picture civilization as a missile moving through time and space. This missile has been on its way for many thousands of years, headed for a special destination for mankind. Its internal guidance mechanism was turned on when the great religions and philosophies arrived to give humane guidance to men. For Western society, the missile's central system was activated at the time of Judaism's declaration of one God, and that declaration, along with similar statements from other cultures, has been the primary directive for society thus far.
  
When Christianity arose and broke from the popular Judaism of the day, the missile received input that altered the course, much as our satellites today are given in-flight corrections as they move to do their work in the universe. With each discovery or development in history, Eastern or Western, external and internal, have come new adjustments in civilization's direction. None of the developments in this long line of progression have been accidental or "bad," despite the human tendency to judge them so. Everything that has happened has been driving us relentlessly to this present moment and to the events shortly to begin.
  
Now, imagine the missile of collective civilization nearing its target, ready to receive its final redirection for the next and perhaps last phase of the trip—not unlike the "smart missile" that sees the target ahead and directs the internal mechanism to drive itself straight to the destination. For mankind, the destination is a rediscovery of simple subjectivism, a new mark in non-space and non-time, a fulfillment of the Original Purpose for tangible life on earth.

As far as the relationship between time and space and their interconnections to tangible life goes, the end-game's corrective information is presently being received within the quantum body of civilization. This information is intended to adjust and correct society's major systems for their final movement as mankind comes to discern the true nature of things—particularly time, space, matter and awareness (life). In many ways science, the vanguard of human wisdom, has nearly reached that comprehension already.

What does this final corrective feel like to you and me here in the old-world scene of things? It comes as a new clock turned on within us; as new sensitivity; an increasing intuitiveness; a new perception within us; as certain unfamiliar anxieties, disquiets, stresses and discomforts; as inexplicable fear and depression. Anyone can look at the human scene and see the lids popping off here and there with acts of insanity and people trying to satisfy impossible urges. Who is to say what the northern geese feel before they assemble to make the trek south? Or the butterflies before they start their long upwind search for their ancestral birthplace? I know that dramatic course-altering input is presently arriving within mankind; the sensitive feel it especially. This arrival is not unlike the way the ability to perceive color has developed in mankind in recent millennia. We are told this sense is one of the latest developments of the human brain—but what is presently happening is at a deeper level of mentation. What is it? The arrival of the truly subjective nature of mentation—quantum man's capacity for ever greater introspective self-examination. 

  At this moment, civilization is a little like a field of cotton beginning to bloom: first a boll here, another there, then more and more until one morning we look out and the entire field is abloom. Or, it is like popcorn popping. One kernel pops, then another and another until there is a veritable explosion of the rest. Hard pressed, shaken together and running over, mankind is coming into a conscious knowledge of a subjective sense of things which is certain to alter the course of civilization. The first "blooms" have been the prophets, the seers, the avatars, the insightful, those with eyes to see and ears to hear. Now the field is turning white with the ability to perceive subjectively. Confusion abounds at the unrecognized newness of it all. Now that subjectivism is here, no one knows what to do with it. The major divisions of human activity have not made the necessary adjustments to allow the missile the freedom to change course. Neither education, government, religion nor metaphysics has made the full turn demanded of them—and the time is short. In certain areas, science, with the help of subjective quantum mechanics, has adjusted reasonably well as it goes along searching the vistas of tangibility, but it remains to be seen what scientists will do with their information once it becomes clear that they are now, and always have been, examining consciousness.

  People are individually willing to adjust, as their intuitions and feelings come into focus, but the controlling groups to which they belong, are vigorously holding to the old ways, refusing to listen to the New Sounds within. Either the institutions of mankind adjust to allow men to change mental course, or there will be a sociological anguish unparalleled in human history.

*******************


  Pertaining to this subjective capability within myself, I have come to perceive special things about time, space, and matter that seem to be generally unknown; yet it is essential that Everyman begin to understand them. Like so many of the things that have been shown to me in the past, I know that mankind and his science will find them soon.

One Ego

Transcribed from an audio recording by William Samuel, 1978 --   

One Ego

How do we know that God is all?  This is one point one must find; if God Really is All. 

We don’t have to call it God, you can call it Reality or, Isness, or something else. Because we are certainly not talking about so big man who sits on a throne and he has a long white beard, and waves a wand and Jesus Christ sitting at his right hand and something else on his left. That’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about something entirely other than that and I don’t mean to be ridiculing those Ideas either. Because those ideas all serve their purpose. and I’m not in any way, form, or fashion knocking any kind of religious concept. Because I am not opposed or contrary to anything that I include within My Self.  Unless I want to be Self destructive.

Now, let's come here.  

So, how do we know that God is all? How do we know that there is one God?  

Judaism began with such a principle. You know, "Thou shalt have no other God before me."  

 Christianity began with the concept of one God. All religious philosophies begin this concept. How do we know there’s one God? What do we mean by One, Singleness? What do we mean by Oneness?  How do we know there is a Oneness? 

Well, these are some of the ways I did get past intellect and finally did get to the heart with it.

Now just consider for example everything tends toward oneness. Everything that we perceive in this Universe tends toward oneness. 

You start out and you got electrons and protons and other particles whirling around a single nucleus and it is one atom, isn’t it?  
And then we have a whole passel of atoms and it winds up being one molecule. You got a bunch of molecules that wind up being one grain of sand. And you have lots of grains of sand that tend to be one rock. And we see that many rocks tend to be one mountain. In all nature, we see everything tending toward singleness. You will find that many mountains tend to be one continent. You will find that several continents tend to be one earth.  It’s always a move toward singleness. You’ll find that several earths or planets constitute one solar system.  A lot of solar systems constitute one galaxy.  a lot of galaxies constitute one Universe. 

Alright, so That which is being the one final Universe is that which is God, That which is being the Totality of Being, is what God Is. 

And that Totality of Being certainly includes Life doesn’t it? There is Life right here, right now, Living, being aware. It is includes trees and bees and little girls with scruffy knees. It includes mountains, it includes birds, it includes all of the images of perception.  All included in and within the Universe.  All tending toward a single oneness. Well, that which is being Life, which is being things, is what we call God.

Now let me show you why It is ineffable. That is, why there is no way in the world to put your finger on what God is. Why It is an undefinable term. Why you can’t outline it or describe it, or use words to speak of what Isness is, or Reality is.   It’s impossible.  

All the religions have said you can define every thing but you cannot define what God is.  And we all know this is true. In fact there was a time in Hebrew history when the word wasn’t even written. There was no word representing God. In fact this is still true.  Some other concepts in the East or Middle East where the word God won’t even be written.

So why then would it be ineffable. Let’s pretend there is a lump of gold here in the middle of the room.

Better yet, let me tell you that everything we see, birds and tress and bees are what we call the qualities and attributes of God. All of you who have studied physics or chemistry know what we mean by qualities and attributes.

Well, Isness is apparently being those qualities and attributes that constitute the Universe. Well, we an certainly comprehend this, something has to be whatever this is, whatever things are. 

There is some isness being the qualities and attributes that constitute the Universe including this Life right now that is living here.

Alright, now why it is impossible to see or perceive God I can point out with the illustration called the lump of gold. 

If you will just see in the middle of the room a lump of gold and pretend that its all and its only and that there is not anything else besides. 

So what are the qualities and characteristics, or attributes of the lump of gold?  Well, one of them is that it’s yellow.  So right, it's yellow, but yellow is not all there is to gold. Well, yellow by itself is nothing, yellow could not exist unless the lump was gold existed. And yet there isn’t any gold itself in yellow. Yellow is just a quality or characteristic.  The quality is because gold is. Now, another characteristic is that the gold is malleable. Well, okay, is there any gold in what we call malleable? There is not, but malleable exists. Malleable is measurable, malleable, since it's measurable, is finite.  Malleable is not all there is to gold. And yet malleable lives and moves and has its being because gold is.   

And another, gold is, you might say, heavy.   Is there any gold in the term heavy? You might also say what its taste would be, I don’t know what gold tastes like, maybe it's tasteless, is there any gold in tasteless?   

You’ll see that the only thing we ever perceive with the eye, or can measure and hear, or touch with the hand, or anyway consciously aware of are always qualities and attributes.  Yet there is no gold itself, no gold in the qualities and attributes. These qualities and attributes exist because gold is.  Even if we knew all there is to know about the qualities and attributes and knew everything about their relationships and inter-relationships, we would still not perceive that Isness that is being the qualities and attributes.   

So it is that if we were to know everything there is about all the chemical things we perceive in this universe, all the physical things and material things, all of the stars and the planets, and all that constitutes them and all of their relationships, and inter-relationships, backward and forward.  And the intellect could perceive all there was to perceive, the intellect would still not have touched that isness which is being all these qualities and attributes. 

So we can see intellectually why we can’t define this term God or Isness. But we can understand that there is Something being these qualities and attributes.

Would you have yellow if there was not an isness called gold? Would you have malleable or soft or whatever the other qualities and attributes are, something has to be them.   


So, therefore there is an Isness, an Ineffable, Unnameable, Being what we perceive to be the Universe. and this consciousness of It. And that Isness for lack of a better word, is called God.

And where is It?  Where is God? Where is Reality? Where is this Ineffable Isness? Well, It's right here, being this consciousness that is conscious of things.

You know, I went around the world looking for God-- twice! Not once, twice. Traveled on and studied in several continents. With all kinds of teachers, only to find out that God was closer than fingers and toes, closer than breathing.

God or Reality is being this very Life I am. This consciousness lives and moves and has its being because Isness, Reality Is, an Ineffable Is. 

Now let me tell you, if this Ineffable can be such a perfect Universe, planets moving in such precision, balance beyond belief --  all the physicists, and chemists are constantly amazed at the intricate, perfect, harmonious, mathematical precision at every turn of the road, in every study. If this Ineffable can be that perfection, then what does this awareness being I have to worry about its existence, its being?  None at all, none at all.

Little Boy Lost





LITTLE BOY LOST

Pondering the enigma of communication one day out in the back country of my hills, I witnessed the happy reunion of a father and his five-year-old son who had been lost in the woods for many hours. I knew the boy would be found—and I knew I knew—but despite the positive knowing, I was unable to allay the father's fears or bring him to understand the Truth I saw. Then, even as I wondered—even as I asked about this inability to communicate when it seemed so important to do it—I saw the little boy and the father find each other.


Oh, such a reunion! A barefoot ragamuffin came running out of the woods shouting with all his might, "Daddy! Daddy!" and I saw the father, unashamedly sobbing, sweep the child into his arms. All he could say was, "Hallelujah! Praise God!" again and again. "Hallelujah! Praise God!"  

Then and there, it was my joy to see the communication was ever so much more than fancy words, proper grammar and intellectual nuances; more than education and cultured sophistication. I saw uninhibited enthusiasm say more in an instant than all the words of the encyclopedia heaped upon all the words of the Bible. I saw uninhibited being, stripped of its world-be possessor. In the twinkling of a "Praise God" and a "Daddy, Daddy," I learned that words are just words. Too many are a clutter, and pompous ones a waste. Simple, unpretentious, tender childlikeness—honesty—stirs the Heart and overthrows the intellect, leaving the child-we-are in the Father's arms. 

Since those days, I have been a child again wandering along the back roads and river banks, enjoying, enjoying... Since that time I have known that the intellectual, philosophical presentation of words is not the all-fired important thing I had made of it before. Then and there I determined, as best I could, to end my own use of pompous metaphysical language and attempt to say whatever might be necessary to say in the tender, simple way so natural to us all.
This is a portion of the simplicity you and I have discovered, dear reader. It tells the Story to the first and the last alike.

————————

"Ah, but what of our dignity if we act so simply?" someone asks.

There has never been more Dignity in all the world than the child who runs to his Father and whispers, "I am home again!  I am home again!"



The Secret Of Communication

This afternoon I held a smooth stone in my hand that existed before a single word had ever been uttered.
Which is more significant: the smooth stone or the words that describe it?

ABOUT WORDS

Dear Mary,
Very often we give too much importance to words. Those who are most devotedly looking for the Truth are frequently the ones most hung up on "This is relative or that is absolute."  How many times have you heard that? I was the world's worst. As a renegade metaphysician traveling over the universe from sage to Guru to Prince to Practitioner to apostate, no one ever became more entangled in the intellectual concern for words and their precision than I. Pretty soon I found myself with certain expressions I did not dare use in the presence of some people because I was sure my words indicated my level of comprehension. Bosh!

Subtle restrictions of expressions—thousands of them—abound within the judgmental framework of coming-to-comprehend the Light rather than being the Light.
In our studies here in Mountain Brook, the first thing we do is to look into the matter of words, thence to come down from that ridiculously lofty and arid plateau of "absolute" versus "relative." All words are relative. No word is absolute. The absolute that Isness is exists in a dimension as much beyond words as a melody is more than a sheet of music or the principle of arithmetic more than a numeral.

There is an intellectual aspect to Truth, of course, and words play their part in that but the Real contains an infinity of subtle essences that is more than words, greater than words. The awakening to these is often precluded in our wrestling matches with semantics.
