(Stillness in the Storm Editor) The following is a thought-provoking article, penned by Christina Sarich, reviewing a discussion about advanced extraterrestrial life. The scientists contend that, firstly, their knowledge of the universe is profoundly inadequate, and secondly, that highly advanced beings could merge with reality in an ascended-like event. From the point of view of spiritual evolutionary works and material, there are clear similarities between what has been called ascension or the evolution of consciousness beyond materiality and what is discussed by the scientists below.
Caleb Scharf of Columbia University said:
“What better way to ensure survival, by leaving a physical local system, and moving to exist within light itself, and to be everywhere in the universe at any given moment.”
Although Sharf does not use the terms ascension or evolution of consciousness into a light body, the concepts are effectively equivalent. For those familiar with the so-called ascension, depicted in many religious works throughout history, the comparison is easy to make. When consciousness has moved from a local temporal and spatial modality to one that exists “everywhere in the universe at any given moment,” a transcendent level of development has taken place.
The moment of transcendence within spiritual circles is called the Ascension and is described by religions of antiquity along with supposedly extraterrestrial or dimensional contactees, mediums, and channelers. The Law of One material, in particular, is a channeled body of information that discusses an energetic event that will provide human beings an opportunity to “ascend” or evolve into a new phase of existence. Within the system given by that working, the highest orders of evolution are within seventh density, where an individual’s consciousness merges with the cosmos at large, becoming indistinguishable from reality as we know it.
Could the statements provided by the scientists below be a partial disclosure of non-physical life that many ufologists and spiritual works discuss? While one cannot know for certain what their intentions are, the objective elements of their statements, as was said, are effectively equivalent.
Consider that in the Rainbow Body teachings and practices within the religion of Buddhism one can leave their physical body behind, and enter a realm of pure consciousness and thought.
The most common level is the normal Rainbow body that occurs only after body death. Every 10 years or so a Buddhist from Tibet enters into this state. There are no physical signs indicating the start of the process before death and once physical death occurs it takes on average 7 days for the body to shrink and dissolve into light and most of the time a small child size body remains behind and in more advanced yogi’s only hair and nails.

The practice involves “making every thought a loving thought,” which might sound like hippie nonsense. But what it essentially is describing is the process of accepting reality as a whole, so completely, that the energy flowing in and through one’s beingness entangles with all points of existence harmonically. According to the historical record, thousands of cases of body transmutation have been well documented, where practitioners ascended to a rainbow body state of pure light—precisely what Sharif said above.
But is it even possible for a human being to access all points of space and time?
For the materialist, the question is so antithetical to the biological machine doctrine of consciousness, that it isn’t even worth investigating. But for those who hold a more open-minded perspective, it is very possible and likely that a mind, properly disciplined, can and does become aware of information in a non-local and non-physical fashion.
Considering the work of Dr. Michael Persinger, a neuroscientist famous for a device he helped create popularly known as the God Helmet, it is not only possible but inevitable. In a 2007 talk he gave at Laurentian University, Dr. Persinger presented the theory that it was possible to embed every human thought into the Earth’s magnetic field, saying that the field itself has the capacity to store incredible amounts of information. He then demonstrated how the human brain’s electromagnetic processes, measured by an electroencephalogram (EEG) is harmonic with the Earth’s EM field, popularly known as the Schumann Resonances.
In states of relatively quiet geomagnetic activity, the energetic waves pulsing on the Earth can harmonize more profoundly with human brain waves, giving certain individuals who are sensitive to such fields the ability to tap into the thoughts of others during dream time or theta states of consciousness. During such times, the locality of consciousness shifts and spreads out (for lack of a better term), developing a sensitivity to information in a non-local fashion. Dr. Persinger then discusses the well-documented work of remote viewer Ingo Swann, who participated in Stanford Universities research that was later developed by the DIA and CIA.
Swann’s capacity to remote view seemed to be enhanced by his meditative practice wherein he would develop the ability to enter a theta state at will. Some even say that the effectiveness of remote viewers, within secret government projects, has far surpassed Swann’s abilities. However, for the purposes of this discussion what remote viewing demonstrates is that consciousness itself has the ability to transcend locality, of not only time, but space. In addition, electromagnetic fields that are harmonic with the human brain can greatly enhance these abilities, and perhaps the Earth itself will one day act like a giant EM entrainment generator, propelling human consciousness into the non-physical realms of the cosmos. As a matter of fact, this is precisely what much of the ascension-related material says. And that this time in history is when the Sun and solar system will harmonize energetically and the electromagnetic soup all life on Earth bathes in will propel consciousness forward in an evolutionary quantum leap. The Law of One refers to this event as the Harvest.
At this point in the discussion, one would need to entertain what has become known as spiritual evolution, discussed by many philosophers throughout history. In particular, hermetic traditions and works discuss that the whole of reality itself is a living entity, sometimes called the evolving supreme being. The creator or “God” within this system of thought is a transcendent intelligence that, as the scientists discuss below, is a singularity. The creator of the universe is all there is, meaning it is not only the substance with which we move, breathe, and have our being, but it is also everywhere present in all times and places that have ever and will ever exist.
In Hermetic philosophy, the mind of God is the setting where the evolving Supreme (the universe as we know it) progresses through the evolutionary choices of the creatures of time and space. While this might sound completely unapproachable from a grounded point of view, consider that within a person’s mind, they are everywhere present. In a dream or imagined reality, a person’s consciousness has a kind of omniscience that is functionally equivalent to the mind of the transcendent creator in the universe as a whole. Therefore, the notion that an individual can, through careful choices, become a harmonic of the creator, merging their will with the will of the cosmos, is not logically impossible. And if these ideas about spiritual ascension are correct, then as one gains more life experience and harmonically entrains themselves with the cosmos at large, they would effectively become an aspect of the universe as a whole, where they “merge with the laws of physics.”
Thus, the ideas discussed by the scientists are close to the same notions spoken of in esoteric circles throughout history. Did these figures within the heights of science deduce these principles because there is an inexorable truth of existence they made contact with? Or did they stumble upon them by chance?
Given how deluded scientific institutions have become over the years, it’s hard to know for certain. But it suggests that while human society tends to abandon the past in favor of so-called progress, the realities of existence and grand truths about the cosmos cannot be ignored forever. Perhaps humanity’s skepticism about spiritual beliefs of the past will one day be eclipsed, and a new renaissance of discovery will one day take place, merging science with spirituality to produce a level of knowing where angels and advanced extraterrestrials are discovered to be one in the same.

Just how advanced are certain alien civilizations that live out in our cosmos compared to human life? Even with the most modest estimations, they’ve had billions of years of evolutionary time to advance – their technology, their consciousness, and even their physical forms. Scientists have long argued over exactly what constitutes extra-terrestrial life, but with a recent admission, they say they can’t tell the difference between alien life forms and our most advanced laws of physics.
Alien Life by 2025, or Already ‘Discovered’ Billions of Years Ago?
NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan recently said there were “strong indications of life beyond Earth” that would likely be obtained by 2025, but if we can’t even understand aliens in the most simplistic material terms, what is to say they weren’t discovered’ a very long time ago – like billions of years ago?
Caleb Scharf, an astrophysicist at Columbia University, recently published an article admitting that the Universe is so strange, the rules of physics and alien life might simply be interchangeable – wherein alien life simply disappears into the fabric of space/time.
On the quantum level, it is possible that an intelligence has reduced itself to function within photons. Scharf attests, “What better way to ensure survival, by leaving a physical local system, and moving to exist within light itself, and to be everywhere in the universe at any given moment.” This is often referred to as the singularity principal in advanced quantum physics.
In science fiction, the term quantum singularity is used to refer to many different phenomena, which often approximately resemble a gravitational singularity in the scientific sense in that they are massive, localized distortions of space and time. The name invokes one of the most fundamental problems remaining in modern physics: the difficulty in merging Einstein’s Theory of Relativity (which includes singularities within its models of black holes) and quantum mechanics.
Are Physical Laws Simply Alien Intelligence?
Truly, are physical laws simply an alien intelligence? If alien life truly is so advanced it becomes indistinguishable from physics, there really would be no way to realize their overt presence with our currently limited consciousness.
“For example, if machines continue to grow exponentially in speed and sophistication, they will one day be able to decode the staggering complexity of the living world, from its atoms and molecules all the way up to entire planetary biomes. Presumably life doesn’t have to be made of atoms and molecules, but could be assembled from any set of building blocks with the requisite complexity. If so, a civilization could then transcribe itself and its entire physical realm into new forms. Indeed, perhaps our universe is one of the new forms into which some other civilization transcribed its world.
These possibilities might seem wholly untestable, because part of the conceit is that sufficiently advanced life will not just be unrecognizable as such, but will blend completely into the fabric of what we’ve thought of as nature. But viewed through the warped bottom of a beer glass, we can pick out a few cosmic phenomena that—at crazy as it sounds—might fit the requirements.”
He thinks even dark matter, or black holes might be illusions of the same kind,
“For example, only about 5 percent of the mass-energy of the universe consists of ordinary matter: the protons, neutrons, and electrons that we’re composed of. A much larger 27 percent is thought to be unseen, still mysterious stuff. Astronomical evidence for this dark, gravitating matter is convincing, albeit still not without question. Vast halos of dark matter seem to lurk around galaxies, providing mass that helps hold things together via gravity. On even larger scales, the web-like topography traced by luminous gas and stars also hints at unseen mass.
Cosmologists usually assume that dark matter has no microstructure. They think it consists of subatomic particles that interact only via gravity and the weak nuclear force and therefore slump into tenuous, featureless swathes. They have arguments to support this point of view, but of course we don’t really know for sure. Some astronomers, noting subtle mismatches between observations and models, have suggested that dark matter has a richer inner life. At least some component may comprise particles that interact with one another via long-range forces. It may seem dark to us, but have its own version of light that our eyes cannot see.”
“If you’re a civilization that has learned how to encode living systems in different substrates, all you need to do is build a normal-matter-to-dark-matter data-transfer system: a dark-matter 3D printer. Perhaps the mismatch of astronomical models and observations is evidence not just of self-interacting dark matter, but of dark matter that is being artificially manipulated.”
Truly, we, as a society, have continued to assume that the cosmos is physical in nature – and therefore, all its ‘life’ and sentience must also take a similar physical form.
For example, complex life is thought to only be possible in 10 percent of all galaxies, but again that assumes a limited, 3-D, physical form of life.
What if, as some have suggested, that not only do planets, stars, and moons contain life, but are also life-forms themselves, and as an extrapolation of recent theories, even light and thought are also forms of life?
For example, there are phenomena in plasma physics that imitate the vortices you see at the edge of streams, that exhibit some of the attributes associated with life. Persistent, organized structure, recovery from deviation, and even certain kinds of reproduction.
The Mystery of Photonic Light
Others have asked whether photonic light exists as a separate entity within all atoms or are they created at certain energy levels for the purpose of absorption, or emission, or do they exist omnipresently in the fabric of the universe?
The answer we have thus far supports Scarf’s assertation that alien life is so advanced, we may not even be able to recognize it.
As Dave Kornreich a PhD astronomer from Cornell explains,
“Strangely, a photon doesn’t seem to ‘come from’ anywhere. The universe must put the extra energy somewhere, and because electrons in atoms are electromagnetic phenomena, a photon is born with the required energy. In a weak-force interaction, say the decay of a neutron, that energy goes into a neutrino particle which is also instantaneously created. Each force has its own carrier particles, and knows how to make them.
That’s really all we can say about it. There are many interpretations of what this and other phenomena in quantum mechanics mean on a deeper level, and whole libraries worth of books which argue points of view on the matter. But my personal philosophy is that of the famous physicist Richard Feynman, who said: “Shut up and calculate.”
Clearly, we aren’t able to ‘calculate’ an advanced society billions of years ahead of us. We have a long way to go and much to learn in this grand, possibly infinite, Universe of ours.
