MercabaJoin us Wednesday August 24, 2016 at 6:30 PM for “Encounters of a Seeker: the Four Body System, Part II” presented by Harold Cottrell.

Several questions have arisen from Part I.

Why can’t we see the other three bodies?  Are these bodies like a body of water or like the human body?  Do the bodies get fed?  Do the bodies sleep?  If the bodies are asleep and awaken, then what is the light they awaken to—surely it is different than the sun.  If any of the bodies can see, then where is the light that illuminates that which is being observed?  Do all the bodies die like the physical body?

These questions and more will be explored as we continue to understand the ancient teachings of the Four Body System that predates the Babylonians from 4500 years ago.  Once again, we will draw upon Quantum Physics within a six-dimensional universe in our adventure into the possibilities.

Harold Cottrell has a Masters in Mathematics, a former professional Ballroom Dancer, farmer, naturalist,  Seeker of Truth and author of the book, “Just One Generation: Repairing the Past, Learning from the Future”.

Harold is from Hart County Kentucky and has lived in Lexington for 35 years.  Currently Harold lives in Louisville.

SixDWorldFourBodiesJoin us Wednesday July 13, 2016 at 6:30 PM for “Encounters of a Seeker: the Four Body System” presented by Harold Cottrell.

Most all of us have a sense that there is something more than just our physical presence in this world, that something within us has the possibility of existing after our physical body ceases to exist.  This sense and the desire to assure the reality of this possibility has been the subject of religions and teachings for thousands of years.

The Four Body System is an ancient teaching that predates the Babylonians 4500 years ago.  It is brought to modern times through Buddhist, Vedic, Hermetic, Theosophy, Esoteric Christianity and Fourth Way schools. The four bodies are called “physical, astral, mental and causal” or “carnal, emotional, mental and divine” or they could be called “physical, astral/desire, mental/will and karmic/heavenly”.

After examining all the different teachings, a chicken-and-egg problem arises.  Does the carnal body exist first and through certain practices in one’s life the other bodies are nurtured and developed, or does the karmic body exist first and through the laws of Karma, the physical body exists through a lifetime to fulfill certain karmic requirements?

Harold Cottrell, a lifelong Seeker of Truth, explores this chicken-and-egg question by starting with defining a six-dimensional universe that is consistent with modern physics and gives us a basis for answering the question, “Where are these bodies?”  But that is not enough to solve the problem.  We need to use principles of Quantum Physics to arrive at a cosmology where the possibility of a four body system is real.

June 25, 2014 (Wednesday) – Life Force, The Scientific Basis: Breakthrough Physics of Energy Medicine, Healing, Chi and Quantum Consciousness

Healing, Human Energy, Quantum Physics Comments Off on June 25, 2014 (Wednesday) – Life Force, The Scientific Basis: Breakthrough Physics of Energy Medicine, Healing, Chi and Quantum Consciousness

NOTE: Effective June 2014 with our new location, we’re going to move our meetings to the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.

S_LifeForce01Join the Louisville Esoteric Society on Wednesday June 25, 2014 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting:   Life Force, The Scientific Basis: Breakthrough Physics of Energy Medicine, Healing, Chi and Quantum Consciousness presented by Bob Hartye.

Bob’s description:

During my formal education in Physics 45 years ago, I was driven by a desire to explore the boundary between Physics and Metaphysics, my real passion.  Unable to gain any traction from what was available to me at the time, I pursued a career elsewhere.

Taking up this quest again upon retirement, I found there has been essentially no progress in this area from U.S. mainstream physics.  Although, there was no lack of alternative physics theories available through the internet, most had very little experimental support and it was difficult for me to sort out fact from fiction.

Meanwhile on the Spiritual path, I was frequently exposed to motivational speakers who would relate spiritual principles to various aspects of Quantum Theory.  To me, the connections often seemed more poetic than scientific and while this unquestionably had value to practically all of my friends, for me it was like rubbing salt in the wound.

As my wife and friends became involved in energy healing, I have been trying to better understand how this healing energy, Qi, relates to and interacts with the known physical universe on one hand and consciousness on the other.  The book shown above pulls together the most promising scientific experimental results and theories worldwide addressing this topic. I was amazed at how much good information was available.

It appears to me, that this healing energy is the bridge I was looking for between physics and metaphysics.

A description from the book’s back cover is included below. I’ve tried to understand the physics and biophysics well enough to communicate them as clearly and correctly as possible without getting in too deep. Join us Wednesday the 25th and we’ll see!

Is The Universe Alive?

Cosmology, Philosophy, Quantum Physics, Science Comments Off on Is The Universe Alive?

Universe revisedJoin the Louisville Esoteric Society on Tuesday May 13, 2014 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting topic: “Is The Universe Alive?” presented by Janet Rowland.

In this meeting, we’ll view an episode of the Through The Wormhole series. This episode includes scientific theories pointing to the possibility that the universe is actually a living organism.

After viewing that video, we’ll watch 3 brief video clips featuring MIT Philosophy Professor Caspar Hare. Professor Hare’s clips are from one of the classes he teaches at MIT, and are directed at providing his students the groundwork for formulating convincing philosophical arguments. We won’t be tasked with doing that but, the arguments in the clips will provide more detail – from a philosophical approach – on two concepts discussed in the Through The Wormhole episode; the Teleological or Design argument and the Fine Tuning or Cosmological Constants argument.

In closing, we’ll talk a little about a technological development discussed in the Through The Wormhole episode, quantum computers.

It’s a compelling idea that the science of physics, based on mathematics – and philosophy, based more on pure thought, are merging in a synergistic partnership. Hopefully, this partnership points the way to an ever increasing understanding of the universe and our place in it.

All sincere seekers are welcome. A $5 donation is suggested to support the ongoing expense of Louisville Esoteric Society.

REMINDER…. We have a new location for meetings: Westport Road Church of Christ – Community Room, 4500 Westport Road

September 25, 2012 – Tales of Everyday Magic: Entanglement

Consciousness, Quantum Physics, Spirituality 1 Comment »

Join us on Tuesday September 25, 2012 for our discussion group topic, Tales of Everyday Magic: Entanglement” presented by Jim Locke & Anna Smith.

Based on the writings of best-selling author and visionary scientist Gregg Braden, Entanglement explores the possibility of quantum entanglement and our connection to “the Divine Matrix.”

When a daunting premonition takes U.S. art student Jack Franklin hostage, he is consumed by the thought of the danger his twin brother, Charlie, may be in. Separated by the war in Afghanistan and the constraints of modern-day technology, Jack defies the laws of science when he taps into the unexplainable physics of the Divine Matrix to try to save the life of his brother, as well as the lives of others serving with him.

All sincere seekers are welcome.  A $5 donation is suggested.

August 14, 2012 – Are There More Than Three Dimensions – Are There Parallel Universes?

Cosmology, Multi-Dimensions, Multiple Universes, Quantum Physics, Science 1 Comment »

Join us on Tuesday August 14, 2012 for our discussion group topic, Are There More Than Three Dimensions – Are There Parallel Universes?presented by Janet Rowland. We will view two more episodes from the series, “Through The Wormhole“, narrated by Morgan Freeman. These two episodes discuss fascinating theories to universal questions  which have intrigued every thinking person at some time.

Are There More Than 3 Dimensions?: Could there be more ways to travel than back and forth, side to side and up and down? These 3 directions seem to be the only paths we can move in, but cutting edge science now professes there must be more. Unlocking these invisible pathways is the holy grail of science. Physicists believe that the answers to our most burning questions are hidden in these higher dimensions. Now armed with the most ambitious scientific instrument humanity has ever built, the brightest minds of our planet are convinced we are on the verge of unraveling the Universe’s true number of dimensions… and unlocking the secrets hidden inside.

Are There Parallel Universes?: Most scientists believe that you are not really you, but rather, you all. On the edge of space, buried in a black hole, or right on top of you, there could be an exact copy of yourself living a parallel reality. In those parallel worlds, you may be living your wildest dreams, or your worst nightmares. Finding them is no longer restricted to the realm of science fiction. Recent game-changing theories now suggest that if these worlds exist, intelligent life in these alternative worlds could be trying to send us messages. As scientists further unravel this astounding possibility, a new possibility emerges: the fate of our entire universe may depend on these hidden cosmic twins.

October 25, 2011 – “Is There a Creator? Is There Life After Death?”

Belief, Consciousness, Quantum Physics, Spirituality 1 Comment »

On Tuesday October 25, 2011 we viewed two episodes of the “Through The Wormhole” – “Is There a Creator? ” and “ Is There Life After Death?” – presented by Janet Rowland.  The “Through The Wormhole” series originally aired on the Science Channel, and is narrated by Morgan Freeman.

Is There a Creator?” –  It’s perhaps the biggest, most controversial mystery in the Cosmos. Did our Universe just come into being by random chance, or was it created by a God who nurtures and sustains all life? The latest science is showing that the four forces governing our Universe are phenomenally finely tuned, so finely that it has led many to the conclusion that someone, or something, must have calibrated them. While skeptics hold that these findings are neither conclusive nor evidence of a divine creator, some cutting edge physicists are already positing who God may be. Some of the answers are as compelling as they are disconcerting.

Is There Life After Death?” –  Everyone has pondered the question that strikes at the core of our existence; Is there life after death? What happens to the soul after we die? People who have had near-death experiences claim to have visited the other side before getting yanked back into consciousness. Now some of the brightest minds in science are trying to understand how life can persist beyond the physical and what it might look like. It might be a quantum state based on the fundamental laws of the Universe. Ultimately, it is a journey that struggles to decode the most complicated instrument in the Universe: the human brain.

Thanks to everyone for joining us for “Is There a Creator?” and “Is There Life After Death?

August 23, 2011 Discussion – “Myths, Miracles and Multi-Dimensional Reality: Reclaiming Personal Responsibility; Remembering Our Divine Sovereign Power”

Consciousness, Multi-Dimensions, Quantum Physics, Spirituality 2 Comments »

We had another full house for a remarkable presentation on “ Myths, Miracles and Multi-Dimensional Reality: Reclaiming Personal Responsibility; Remembering Our Divine Sovereign Power, presented by Logan McCulloch.

Logan shared so much knowledge with us and drew upon  information drawn from quantum physics, indigenous shamanic traditions and Gnostic teachings related to a model of our multi-dimensional universe proposed by George Kavassilas.  The presentation examined the role of the “Higher Self” (Oversoul, Aumakua, etc.) and higher dimensions in our present experience of third and fourth dimensional reality.  Topics  included concepts such as the role of free will, the purpose of physical reincarnation, super-position, holofractal geometry, and the purpose of duality/polarity in creation.  The audience was invited to consider the innate sovereignty and potential power of the Higher Self, and its many manifested aspects within this Universal Being.  Many insightful questions were posed by the audience, and Logan’s answers provided us all with even more understanding.  Thank you, Logan!!
