I just got Chuck Missler's newsletter in the mail today and have seen enough. Issue after issue, interview after interview (at the mic of CNP'er, John Ankerberg), Missler keeps on expounding "progressive" "new paradigm" thinking, as espoused in Aquarian sources, such as Marilyn Ferguson. The August issue of his Personal Update has Missler promoting the new age physicist, David Bohm, in an article titled, Is Our Reality Only Virtual? According to Missler, Bohm is the hottest thing since sliced geometry:
"There also seems to be evidence to suggest that our world...consists of...projections from a level of reality so beyond our own that the real reality is literally beyond both space and time. The main architect of this astonishing idea includes one of the world's most eminent thinkers...David Bohm, a protégé of Einstein's and one of the world's most respected quantum physicists."
That whole idea of an illusory material world is very well known to new agers like Marilyn Ferguson as the Eastern doctrine of MAYA. In the context of the mystical musings of neuroscientist, Karl Pribram, Ferguson introduces David Bohm to her readers as a western pioneer of this foundational weapon in the new age arsenal:
"Suddenly he blurted out, "Maybe the world is a hologram!"...if the nature of reality is itself holographic, and the brain operates holographically, then the world is indeed, as the eastern religions have said, maya: a magic show. Its concreteness is an illusion... His son mentioned that David Bohm, a protégé of Einstein, had been thinking along similar lines. A few days later, Pribram read copies of Bohm's key papers urging a new order in physics. Pribram was electrified. Bohm was describing a holographic universe. What appears to be stable, tangible, visible, audible world, said Bohm, is an illusion...not really there."
But what Missler is so excited about is not limited to Bohm on the nature of matter, but indeed a whole litany of mystical doctrines and new age psychobabble:
The Doctrine of Monism
"While at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, he noticed that in plasmas...the particles stopped behaving like individuals and started behaving as if they were part of a larger and interconnected whole..."
"Bohm's sense of the interconnectedness...left him searching... One of the implications of Bohm's view has to do with the nature of locality...at the subquantum level, location ceased to exist. All points in space become equal to all other points in space, and it was meaningless to speak of anything as being separate from anything else. "
". . .the very fabric of physical reality itself possesses what appears to be an undeniable "holographic" property...Since all particles are continually interacting and separating, "the non-local aspects of quantum systems is therefore a general property of nature."
"The tangible reality of our everyday lives is really a kind of illusion, like a holographic image."
"The inability to confirm the existence of infinity -in either the macrocosm of the astronomer or the microcosm of the quantum physicist- has placed an unwelcome limit on our cosmological speculations"
"Underlying it is a deeper order of existence, a vast more primary level of reality that gives birth to all the objects and appearances of our physical world...Bohm call this deeper level of reality the implicate (enfolded) order and he refers to our level of existence as the explicate (unfolded) order."
No wonder the new agers were so excited to dovetail Bohm's speculation with Eastern mysticism, the central symbol of enlightenment (discovering your divine identity) being the unfolded lotus blossom that receives the rays of the sun.
Surprisingly, Missler doesn't stop there, but tacitly substantiates other long-forbidden occult phenomena :
"The holographic model has also opened the door to a wide range of phenomena so elusive that they have been characterized outside the province of scientific understanding: telepathy, precognition, mystical feelings, psychokinesis, etc..."
Note well here, that Missler, the watch dog, is not exposing the leaven of new age pseudo-science, but is rather promoting and enjoining it, as if the Bible validates it:
"The Bible, incidentally, is unique in that it has all along presented a universe of more than three dimensions and revealed a creator that is transcendent over his creation."
But it doesn't stop there. Chaos theory, the trump card of the Aquarian movement, poses the possibility of scientific validation to the entire paradigm shift. If everything is relative, a by-product of universal mind in a dreaming state, and rooted in the universe's innate divine mathematics, then chaos theory can explain the world in whatever image the occultists may visualize. Again, Missler goes right along with this "progressive" mindset :
"The study of ostensibly random effects has emerged in the field of mathematics called chaos theory."
Chaos math is the evolutionist's answer to creationist arguments against Darwinian theory of gradual variation and change. Creationists have argued for the impossibility of evolution, on the basis of ordered statistics, which are predictable and verifiable. The chances of life evolving incrementally are so stupendously thin that the very notion becomes ridiculous beyond the wildest imagination. Chaos comes along and makes statistics and probability irrelevant, which is precisely why the mathematician, played by Jeff Goldbloom, in the evolutionary celebration, Jurassic Park, was a continual advocate of chaos theory and punctuation. According to the wise sage of the park, with these naturalistic gimmicks in tow, "Life will always find a way."
Chaos is also the naturalist philosopher's ultimate excuse to explain innate intelligence within organisms, ecosystems, and a supposedly living planet. So, if the planet is imbued with innate intelligence, who needs a creator? Oh, somebody needs to program the chips, but once programmed, no work needs to be done. Do I smell the smoke of deism, smouldering somewhere in the background?
What we need now, more than ever, are scientists, who will come to the defense of our tried and proven schools to the foundations to our knowledge, namely math, physics and chemistry. Unfortunately, Missler has already switched teams and is teasing us that the waters of Aquarius are just fine :
"Even the ambiguous comfort of true randomness within the physical world has now been called into question by the new math of chaos theory."
New Age champion Marylin Ferguson, in her overt attempts to catalyze a great paradigm shift, cited fellow conspirator (her words, not mine) David Bohm, as often as any one else, short of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Her interpretation of Bohm's conclusions are almost identical to Missler's. Her argument implies that the Bible is fundamentally compatible with such occult arcana and that the Christian world need not shrink back from the waters of her conspiracy. Missler's positive educational approach effectively serves to nudge Christians right into that same current :
"It is amazing...that the Word of God presents a view of reality that is not at variance with these contemporary insights of quantum physics."
Unfortunately, what Missler's fascination is actually playing into are the monistic and pantheistic models of an innately intelligent, divine creature, which comprises a single organic intelligence of the collective life of creation, the occult dream of utopia, that many are now referring to as Gaia.
Chuck has also shown an increasing fascination with numerology and the kabalah, a Jewish form of gnostic mysticism, which was translated into European languages by the father of the occult revival, Eliphas Levi, and Masonic scholar Arthur Edward Waite. Kabalists call the earth the tree of life, the feminine side of God. Teilhard de Chardin called it point Omega, the rebirth of the collective of one grand life. Witches call it the goddess.
The link in Missler's chain to kabalism and numerology, dovetails another one of the new age world's obsession, known as cryptography, which was first developed by Rosicrucian occultists and passed on through Freemasons and hermetic mystics. Cryptography, or cryptology, to the occult amounts to the hidden keys of the universe:
Missler's adoption of this concept reflects a disturbing tendency on his part :
"The first direct technological implementation of these...principles...is in cryptology. British researchers have constructed a device for quantum key encryption and decryption ...should the key become known to an unintended listener, both the transmitter of the key and all designated recipients of it will instantaneously know that illicit knowledge has come into existence..."
Missler's arguments, if believed, prepare the reader to be rapidly invaded by the leaven of the last days. In light of the strategy of the enemy to capitalize on relativism and naturalism, to create a collective, interdependent spirituality, based upon the centrality of the earth, I am surprised, no amazed, that such an astute and Biblically trained teacher, like Missler, would stoop to such overt philosophical syncretism that even stoops to the level of alchemical & hermetic arcana.
Let's just remember where our salt really comes from and never be ashamed of applying it liberally.
