BUT…to understand it requires a complete paradigm shift where we’ll have to change the way we see ourselves and our connection to each other.
The Field paradigm is, in essence, a rediscovery of a truth we once new, but have forgotten over time.

The biggest paradigm shift in history… is happening right now
A paradigm is like a pair of glasses. If the glasses are pink, the world is pink. If somebody would try to convince a person with pink glasses he’s wrong, and hold a color chart in front of his nose as ‘scientific evidence’ to prove it, all the person would see is different shades of pink, confirming his belief, and confirming that the other person has lost his mind. It is our belief system that defines how we see the world.
Sometimes we discover that our glasses are the wrong ones, and we get a new pair of glasses. This is called a paradigm shift. Once upon a time people believed that the earth was a flat disk, and that the sun was revolving around the earth. This was what they saw, (they saw a flat earth, and they saw the sun circling around our planet every day) so it was natural to assume this was the reality.
Likewise, sometime in the not-so-distant future, people will think the same about us. How could we have such misguided views of our reality, being deceived by what we see, rather than how it really is. We see ourselves as separate from each other, (I am here, you are there, there is nothing in between) while in reality we are all connected by invisible fields.
We use this invisible connection to communicate with each other. For example, our mobile phone will create a vibration on the Electromagnetic field that will travel to another mobile phone.
Now it’s being discovered that we are connected to each other in a far more fundamental way, at the source of our thoughts, and that we influence each other with every thought we have. Based on this new discovery, there are now technologies to use this connection to create a positive influence, so that negative thoughts simply don’t come up anymore. People simply won’t be able to harm or kill fellow human beings anymore. They can’t explain why they changed their minds, they just did. It simply doesn’t feel right anymore.
Sometime, in the not-so-distant future, people will laugh at the fact that we think of ourselves as being advanced in terms of technology, because most of us today don’t even have a clue about the one technology that really matters in life, the technology to bring human beings back in touch with their own humanity. We’ll also discover that this technology will be so cheap to implement (100 times cheaper than our current methods of trying to influence human behaviour) that our governments will save so much money they’ll even be able to reduce our taxes. Sounds too good to be true? Wait and see.
When will that ‘not-so-distant future’ come? Who can say? The technology that we will discuss has already been around for 40 years, and has more scientific proof that it works than anything other method in the entire history of social sciences (50 experiments that will change the world)… and still very few people are aware of its potential. This could all change tomorrow, and the technologies could be implemented in a matter of weeks… or it could take another 40 years. It will mainly depend on what YOU will decide to do after you read the next few pages. Will you keep it a secret, or will you make sure everybody knows about it?
A brief history of paradigms
Before we can discuss the new technology, we first have to give you the right glasses. Otherwise you wouldn’t be able to see it, any less than the guy with the pink glasses would be able to see that there are other colours. (that’s the reason why the technologies we’re about to discuss still haven’t been implemented, even after 40 years of scientific proof).
This new paradigm of a field that connects us at the source of our thoughts is actually not a new paradigm at all. It is the oldest paradigm in history, but somehow we have forgotten about it.
Through the current glasses we’re wearing we’re seeing a number of material objects, a chair, a table, you, me, all separated by empty space.
A long time ago people had a different set of glasses. They believed that all of life was part of one big whole. They believed that our individual life, and our individual consciousness, was like a wave on a universal ocean of life. Oceans have the rather cool ability that they can rise up in many different waves at the same time. Each wave is unique, different from all the other waves, but still they are all a part of the same ocean.
The texts from the oldest tradition in the world, the Vedic tradition (Veda means knowledge in Sanskrit), describe this ocean as the source of both our subjective mental world and our objective physical world. At that source everything, all living beings and all material things are connected to each other. The ancient texts describe the ocean itself as an omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent power, much like the powers we commonly associate with a divine being, only they didn’t see this higher being as an individual person that was separate from us, but as a field of which we were all part.
From this perspective, Yoda’s description of ‘the Force’ in my favorite movie of all times, The Empire Strikes Back, is a lot closer to this divine reality than any attempt from our religions:
“For my ally… is the Force
Life creates it… makes it grow
Its energy surrounds us…and binds us
Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter
You must feel the force, around you
Between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere”
People in ancient times could indeed ‘feel the Force’ (and even ‘use the Force’, but we’ll come back to that one later). They clearly felt they were part of it.
This was just a matter of training. People had techniques to bring their minds to a state of complete inner silence, so that their wave would merge with its universal source. Like this they actually experienced their connection to this field, and trough this to everybody else.
Over time they lost the techniques to do this, however, and so their experience changed. They no longer had a way to develop the deeper layers of their mental potential, and could only experience the top part of the wave, the most superficial level of the mind, as. So we started speaking about a conscious and a subconscious mind.
The area where the wave merges with the ocean was later described by Carl Jung as the ‘collective unconscious’: the part of our consciousness that we share with each other, but which is hiding in the subconscious mind.
As a result our glasses also started to change. We started to see ourselves as separate from that higher divine consciousness. This created a paradigm shift to what I will call the God Paradigm: People still believed there was a higher divine being that controlled the whole universe, but they saw themselves as separate from this being. They were told that they could only reach this divine being through its ‘representatives’ the religions, and that their main purpose in life was to make sure that this higher being was pleased with them. The technologies of the God Paradigm mainly revolved around praying, going to confessions (in the case of our western religions), etc.
These technologies didn’t seem to work all that well, however. Praying to some distant god didn’t have nearly the same effect as experiencing, and enlivening unity within themselves. They were told that ‘God is love’ but they no longer displayed a very loving behaviour towards each other. The age of the God Paradigm was a time of an enormous power concentration for our religions, but it wasn’t exactly a happy time for the rest of the population. There’s probably a reason why we call it the Dark Ages.
Eventually a group of people came to spoil the party: the scientists.
Scientists knew for a while that our entire universe was made up of different combinations of tiny little balls called atoms, but around the 17th century Newton discovered that other than the material things we can see, there were also invisible force fields in nature that regulated how these tiny material balls interacted with each other. By understanding how these forces worked, scientists could suddenly start to explain a lot of the phenomena that were previously only explained through this higher being. The sun was coming up every morning not because of God, but because of simple laws of gravity that kept the earth circling around the sun.
The more scientists started to discover how nature worked, the more they could create practical technologies to start to control nature. It soon became obvious that these technologies worked a lot better than the God Paradigm technologies. No matter how much they prayed, millions of people were dying of diseases like the Black Death, but as soon as scientists discovered that the disease had nothing to do with a displeased God, but simply with some virus, and could eventually find the anti-virus, suddenly they could cure people.
The more these material technologies were successful the more firmly our belief system became established that the material reality was the true reality. Everything could be explained, everything made sense, and the technologies worked. We started to see the universe as one big material entity, like one giant machine, nothing less, nothing more. This is what we will call the Machine Paradigm. There was no more need for any divine being whatsoever. People could finally take matters into their own hands.
Our mechanical glasses became so firmly attached that eventually we even started to see the mysteries of life as purely mechanical events.
We started to think of the relationship between body and mind in terms of a computer. You have the hardware (brain) that creates the software (mind). This analogy sounds completely logical. If we put the computer in sleep mode, the software tops working. If the hardware is damaged (brain damage), it will have a clear influence on the quality of the software, and if the hardware is permanently broken, it’s ‘game over’.
In essence, this reduced us to very sophisticated walking robots. It wasn’t very romantic, but at least the technologies worked. If we knew how the hardware worked, we could also fix it if it was broken.
So in the end there was nothing mystical, nothing spiritual left. Although the technologies worked (most of the time), the Machine Paradigm didn’t really improve our behavior towards each other. In fact it often had the opposite effect. When people started to believe that the material reality was the only true reality, then naturally the complete fulfillment of life consisted of gathering as many material things as they could.
In the God Paradigm people were at least a bit conscious about screwing over their fellow human beings in order to get more stuff for themselves, because, oh boy, were they going to pay for that one in the afterlife. In the Machine Paradigm there was no more god, no more afterlife, just the not-so-pleasant smell of our decaying bodies. The computer broke down and the game is over. It’s as simple as that. So it doesn’t matter if you hurt others. Just get as much stuff as you can for yourself. Enjoy the game while you can.
But something wasn’t quite right with this picture. How many people can you imagine saying on their deathbed: ‘You know, I really wish I could have gotten a bigger car’? How many super-wealthy people are there who still have to deal with depressions? At some point in our lives we all realize that life has to be more than just material things.
At the height of the Machine Paradigm (early twentieth century) the predictions were that soon all religions and all spirituality would be exposed for what they really were, figments of our imagination, and would soon disappear altogether. But that’s not quite what happened.
Again somebody came to spoil the party, and his name was Albert Einstein.
Einstein is generally considered the embodiment of the word ‘genius’ and was voted by Time magazine as the most important person of the twentieth century. From this perspective it surprises me all the more how few people are actually aware of what was by far his most important contribution to mankind. It was not so much about what he finished, but rather what he started.
When Einstein received his Noble Prize it wasn’t because of his famous E=MC2 formula (which led to atomic energy) or his General Theory of Relativity, but because of a paper he wrote in 1908, giving some new interpretations to earlier discoveries of his colleague physicist Max Planck. This paper led to the start of the quantum physics revolution.
Quantum physics revealed that our view of the universe as a collection of material things was one big illusion. The smallest building blocks of our material universe, such as electrons, actually weren’t material at all, they were waves in an electron field that appeared as local material entities. The idea that there were material objects with invisible immaterial force fields in between them was completely wrong. There were only fields, some of which appeared as visible localized material things, while others were invisible forces that kept the material things together.
Let’s take a simple concept to illustrate this. If you have two rooms, and in one room the light is on, while in the other room it’s dark, what’s the difference? The electromagnetic field is just the same in the two rooms, only in one room the light bulb is stirring it, creating vibrations in the field that we perceive as light; the field is enlivened. In the other room there are no vibrations, and as such no light.
Likewise physicists now know that the electrons that make up the atoms in our bodies are vibrations of the same field as the electrons in the atoms of the bodies of our neighbors. In between the two bodies, the electron field is simply silent, and as such there are no material things.
Ultimately the quantum physics that Einstein launched revealed that everything is energy, the vibration of different fields. The view of the universe as one big material machine turned out to be as big an illusion as the God Paradigm.
‘If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.’
Niels Bohr, Nobel Prize Physicist
But Einstein wasn’t done yet. He took it a step further. He predicted that one day physicists would find formulas that would demonstrate that all the different fields themselves (all the particle fields and all the force fields) were just different kinds of vibrations of one single underlying Unified Field.
With this it appears he was trying to intellectually confirm a spiritual belief he had all his life. When Einstein was asked about his religion
he said that he believed in ‘Spinoza’s God’. Spinoza, a famous Dutch philosopher of the 17th century, described God not as an individual being, with likes and dislikes, but as an impersonal omnipresent force (or a field) in Nature, equally nourishing and equally supporting to everyone. He just referred to it as ‘Nature’. Spinoza’s beliefs were not very popular with the religious authorities, to put it mildly (he was ex-communicated), but Einstein, it seems, wanted to prove that he may have been on the right track.
Before we go into Einstein’s Unified Field theories, I have to explain another concept, as it requires a completely new way of thinking to understand it.
When we think of material things, we know that a thing can only be one thing at the time. A table is a table, a chair is a chair; it can’t be both. Fields, on the other hand, can manifest themselves as many different things at the same time.
Let’s take the electromagnetic field as an example. The electromagnetic (EM) field can manifest itself as many different phenomena in nature. Depending on the wavelength and frequency at which it vibrates it manifests as radio waves, microwaves, light waves, X-rays, etc.
Now here’s an interesting experiment you can do. Turn on the light, your radio, and your microwave oven. They will all work perfectly fine. You can even put 20 different radios in the room, and each let them play their own music. It would get a bit noisy but it would work, and it illustrates our point very clearly: One field can create many different expressions, all at the same time, because all these expressions are at different wavelengths/frequencies, and the individual amplitudes of the waves just add up to each other.
If we for example turn on both the light (small wave) and the radio (big wave) the EM field vibration will look something like this.
The new complex wave has the memory of both simple waves, it is both light and radio at the same time. This is how one field can manifest itself as many different phenomena in nature.
What Einstein predicted, and what became the project on which he spent almost the entire second half of his life, was that scientists would one day be able to mathematically describe how all the different matter and force fields are expressions of one single underlying field. If this field would vibrate in a certain way, we’d get electrons, if it would vibrate in another way we’d get quarks (which combine to make protons and neutrons), in yet another we’d get gravity, etc.
Einstein didn’t fulfill this quest in his lifetime, but he did set the stage for countless other scientists who finished the job in 1983 when the first superstring theories were formulated. These theories could indeed explain everything in the universe as vibrations of one underlying field. Currently, one of the aims of the experiments that are running in CERN’s $10 billion Large Hadron Collider, (the most expensive experiment in the history of Physics), is to provide scientific evidence for this theory. The recent discovery of the Higgs boson was an important step in this direction. Currently they are looking for a phenomenon called super-symmetry, as this phenomenon is predicted by the theory. If scientists do find it in practice, this would be an experimental verification of the theory. A lot of prominent physicists are convinced it’s no longer a matter of ‘if’, only ‘when’.
And this will force us to adopt a completely new worldview, because the very fact that this unified field would exist would imply that this field must be a field of consciousness, exactly as the ancient texts described it.
Let’s take our EM field as an example again. We know that the EM field can vibrate in many different ways at the same time, but it can’t do that by itself. There must be an external force creating this vibration, like a light bulb or a radio broadcaster. But if there is only one field at the basis of all the other forces then there can’t be an external force acting upon it. By definition a unified field must create these vibrations from itself. This means it must have creativity, it means it must have awareness (you can’t create if you’re not aware) it must have intelligence (there’s a lot of intelligence in nature, things don’t happen at random). Awareness, creativity, and intelligence, these are the fundamental qualities of consciousness.
This would mean that our universe is not one giant machine, but one giant conscious being. All of life is part of one big whole.
To change our glasses to this new way of looking at things is uncomfortable at first, because we have been so used to our old glasses. But once we start to view the world from this perspective, we start to see this unity and interconnectedness everywhere around us, and our universe just becomes infinitely more magical and beautiful. Actually, we have already been seeing this interconnectedness our whole lives, but because we weren’t able to fit what we saw into our framework of understanding, we mostly ignored it, like the person with his pink glasses wasn’t able to see the different other colours.
So the first thing that we have to do now is make you more comfortable with your new glasses, by giving you some examples of how everything actually makes a lot more sense. (We’ll see many more examples later in this book, this is just a small appetizer).
Let’s see some examples of how everything is connected, and part of one single field of consciousness, on all levels of nature, from the subatomic particle level to the level of plants, animals and humans.
