Akasha (Akash, Ākāśa,) is the Sanskrit word meaning ‘aether’ in both its elemental and metaphysical senses.
Dr. Ervin Laszlo, Ph.D., a former Professor of Philosophy is the recipient of four Honorary PhDs and was nominated for the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize. In his book, Science and the Akashic Field, he writes extensively about akash, also known as the ‘aether’ or ‘spiritual energy’ of the hologram.
Dr. Laszlo explains that aether describes the spirit that exists beyond matter, the ephemeral substance out of which all material comes from. It is a sea of energy that holds everything that has ever occurred. He also maintained that the aether holds our every thought, action and emotion; it is a virtual record of our past, present and future.
Max Planck, German Physicist and the father of Quantum Theory also believed there was an aetheric field and that it held a wholly intelligent energy that is omniscient.
In Italy 1944, Max Planck said, “There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force, which brings the particles of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.”
This interpretation of ‘mind reality’ has had lots of company. Sir Roger Penrose, Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford, offered up his theory on consciousness in the field by stating that “…consciousness comes from the Planck scale field and it is in this field of consciousness that we have the ability to impact.” There is also Edwin Schrodinger’s wave equation that demonstrates the interactions between particles and potential fields in addition to Belle’s Theorem of non-locality, which predicts that there is instant communication in the aetheric field.
Most physicists try to sidestep the issue of ‘consciousness’ and what it may actually be. However, they do acknowledge that there does appear to be connection between the conscious choice of experiment and the outcome of the experiment. In other words, we get what we are looking for.
Some physicists, most notably Roger Penrose, believe that current physics cannot explain consciousness, and that consciousness itself has a link to the strange quantum realm. Unfortunately, consciousness is a realm of discussion that few scientists want to engage in.
Carl Sagan once said that; “It is the responsibility of scientists never to suppress knowledge, no matter how awkward that knowledge is, no matter how it may bother those in power. We are not smart enough to decide which pieces of knowledge are permissible and which are not.”
Closing the door without full investigation and discussion doesn’t seem like an approach that the scientific method requires. The entangled studies of science and spirituality, matter and consciousness will eventually converge. It is becoming apparent that consciousness came before matter, not the other way around. For example, the idea of an ‘Akashic’ record as a metaphysical concept is comparable to the laws that operate in the Spiritual Hologram. Moreover, the laws of physics decree that a record of everything must exist and there are numerous ways to prove this. In geology, there are tree rings, carbon dating fossils, and its sediment layers. In astronomy, we see the stars as they were, not as they are. We see the sun’s rays nine minutes after the fact. We have records in archaeology and anthropology. Even reverberation is a testament to the hologram’s record. Every sound that has ever been uttered gets fainter and fainter but it never totally goes away. Even after you die, your voice is still embedded in the atmosphere and the walls around where you lived. How unusual is this? Not very. We record sounds every day on audio and video tapes and in a similar manner, the aetheric field of the Spiritual Hologram holds our thoughts in the same way that a tape recorder or computer chip can hold our voice.
This spiritual field holds the physical imprint of consciousness. Electroencephalograms (EEGs) measure brainwave activity. These machines pick up the electrical activity generated. Every thought we have generates a particular signal. The aether picks up these thoughts and the imprint is permanent. Every thought is a signal, a frequency imprinted in the aether. Consciousness’ physical nature is the necessary carrier of thought as manifested through, with and in the hologram. Thoughts are able to create matter because consciousness is a true force, perhaps even the fifth force in the universe. These thought ‘forms’ come in contact with this spiritual aetheric field and become eternally imprinted on the hologram. Over time our thoughts can manifest externally due to the build up of energy that our mind gives to it.
We all leave imprints on the holographic field, our every action and thought is there. What determines the impact of a thought on this field is the number of times we have a thought multiplied by the emotion we have about that thought. For example, an old love affair has its own energy imprint in the field. This memory exists by virtue of how much thought energy you put into reminiscing about it. It will dissipate with time as less and less mental energy is put into it. Then one day each forgets the other almost entirely. Time heals all wounds as a slow letting go of ‘mental energy’ to a situation. However, there will always be a faint imprint, as a mist of memory must remain for our retrieval.
