"Ci, co ponad czas i miejsce ducha swego wzbili,
Moga czucia wiecznosci doznac w kazdej chwili."
(Angelus Silesius, born Johann Scheffler; 1624-1677).
Translated by Adam Mickiewicz, probably from Latin original of:
"Man, if thy spirit rise above Time and Space, each moment canst thou be in eternity."
"If you always consider what you've always done, you will never reach a point of view you've never seen before."
Peter Jakubowski (8th August, 2016); It is my revised version of the well-known quote, which some people attribute to Anthony Robbins, Albert Einstein, Henry Ford, or Mark Twain: If you always do what you've always done, you will always get what you've always got. Regardless of its origin, what matters is the point it makes.
"Matter not experiencing any change in time cannot be a part of our reality, similarly like a time "flow" or circulation not combined with a non-zero material area of a quantum, cannot be considered as a part of our reality, too."
Peter Jakubowski (29th May, 2016); in Soul-body-mind in the new paradigm
"Radiation (energy transfer) becomes active when its frequency changes. According to the new paradigm of the Unified Physics, this single conclusion should be enough to explain all natural phenomena and processes. We don't need any part of the traditional physics like the classical quantum physics of the 20th century, electrodynamics, gravity, thermodynamics, nuclear physics, plasma physics, or computational physics. We can really say – goodbye - to all of them."
Peter Jakubowski (May, 2016); in Saying goodbye to the traditional physics
"We’re in the midst of a worldwide identity crisis. The issues of border control, behavioural control, and assimilation now belong to us all, not just a distant continental cousin. So, too, our fears about it, our confusion about it, our curiosity about it. We are all strangers yet inevitable neighbours. We are members of a disruptive family institution in need of clarity and renewal. Some world leaders understand this better than others but relying on only them as our guideposts condemns us to perpetuity – or possible extinction."
"Much of what we see, hear and read in the media today, affects us on a subconscious level. Our thoughts, beliefs, decisions, and way of life has been preprogrammed by dark forces that have no interest in our well-being and only want to profit from our existence on this planet. Until we realize this and rise above it, they will continue to feed on us like a parasitic virus.
Developing an antidote for this disease in our society requires, first and foremost, a deep understanding of how the manipulators pull the strings to achieve their agendas. Armed with this knowledge and the realization of their end-game, we can develop positive strategies to subvert the dominant paradigm and take back our lives to achieve true freedom and liberty for all mankind."

Graham Hancock says, among other sensations: “We have lost a full civilization from a human history.” My own research (compare the present website) tells me we have lost not only a single civilization (with its theoretical lifetime of about 1118 years) but a full Species of twelve consecutive civilizations, living between 22 and 9 thousand years ago.
All our positive impressions we develop during our life are very shy, timid, like the impala antelope, jumping huge jumps, running quickly away in a zig-zag. If so, we have to try to hold our conscious focus on them for as long a moment as possible, to enjoy their existence and their positive contribution into our life. On the contrary, all negative impressions are like rhinos, extremely aggressive, ready to fight against everything living nearby, so we have to try to daze them with the "ether" of our positive emotions, and, if possible, to put them to sleep for ever.
(P. Jakubowski, A short reflection after Bagni di Lucca in January 2016)
What makes us happy is a meaningful life where we experience loving and supportive relationships, the pursuit of meaningful goals, pleasure in everyday events, and enough time to explore our fields of interest. None of these is one that money can buy.
(Ervin Laszlo and Jude Currivan, "CosMos; A Co-creator's Guide to the Whole-World"; Hay House; 2008)
Obtaining more material things does not lead to happiness. More, bigger, newer is not necessarily better. If outer wealth masks inner poverty, no amount of "stuff" will compensate for the resulting void.
(Ervin Laszlo and Jude Currivan, "CosMos; A Co-creator's Guide to the Whole-World"; Hay House; 2008)
… mathematical understanding is something different from computation and cannot be completely supplanted by it. Computation can supply extremely valuable aid to understanding, but it never supplies actual understanding itself. ... Thus, mathematical understanding cannot be reduced to blind computation.
(Roger Penrose, Shadows of the mind; A search for the missing science of consciousness,
Oxford University Press, 1994)
Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
To admire somebody is a way to fall in love with that person,
but to admire Nature is a way to fall in love with all Humanity.

The drama with which the war ended — the detonation of nuclear weapons over cities — cemented the association of the Second World War as 'the physicists' war.' Yet the term had been coined long before August 1945, and originally it had nothing to do with bombs or radar. Rather, the physicists' war had referred to an urgent, ambitious training mission: to teach elementary physics to as many enlisted men as possible.
Both views of how scientists could serve their nations — the quotidian and the cataclysmic — have shaped scientific research and higher education to this day.
The navy and the army also called for massive numbers of military personnel to receive basic training in physics at established colleges and universities. Draft curricula circulated between military officials and the AIP. The army, for example, wanted the new courses to emphasize how to measure lengths, angles, air temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, electric current and voltage. Lessons in geometrical optics would emphasize applications to battlefield scopes; lessons in acoustics would drop examples from music in favour of depth sounding and sound ranging.
So acute was the need to teach elementary physics that a special committee recommended that university departments discontinue courses in atomic and nuclear physics for the duration of the war so as to devote more teaching resources to truly “essential” material.
(From the article "History: From blackboards to bombs" in "Nature", by David Kaiser).
In France in 1790, about 300 witnesses saw an impressive, fiery fall of meteorite fragments, after which they collected a large number of samples. In spite of the eyewitnesses and hard evidence, most scientists of the time scoffed of the idea and pronounced the whole thing a hoax, since such a thing as sky-rocks was “physically impossible”. Even though two Yale scientists went against tradition and supported the facts as being true, President Jefferson supposedly remarked, “It is easier to believe that two Yankee professors would lie than that stones would fall from heaven”.

Who we are and why we are here, the ultimate mystery, will likely remain a scientific mystery. Intuitively, however, this mystery can be understood upon the realization that our existence as a conscious biological form can be traced to cosmic events, and that the prerequisites for our existence can be traced to a universal state. Our Earth is dependent on the sun and the solar system in which it is gravitationally trapped; which is dependent on the Milky Way Galaxy, in which it is gravitationally trapped; which is also held in place by other forces including, but not limited to, our neighboring galaxies. Any interruption in this line of cosmic dependency would likely result in the cessation of our existence. Thus, it can be said that the cosmos is the true nature of Man, and form is the sole means of its expression.

Nichts im Hirn kann sich weiterentwickeln und zunehmend komplexer werden, wenn es keine neue Aufgaben zu lösen, keine neuen Anforderungen zu bewältigen gibt.

Möglicherweise müssen wir Menschen immer noch lernen, die Welt zu sehen. Und möglicherweise kommen wir am Ende zu der Ansicht oder Einsicht, dass die Welt gar kein Aussehen, sondern nur ein Einsehen hat, also die Gestalt zeigt, die wir ihr auferlegen und in sie hineinlegen. Mit anderen Worten: Was die Welt zusammenhält, das sind die Menschen selbst, die dort auf das treffen, was sie selbst geschaffen haben und erzählen. Ganz zuletzt findet der Mensch zu sich selbst. Er muss nur den Mut und die Ausdauer haben, lange genug nach sich zu suchen.
(Ernst Peter Fischer; "Das Grosse Buch vom Menschen"; S.323)
Menschen erkannten sich als Schöpfer ihres eigenen Lebens und nicht nur das – sie erkannten sich als Schöpfer der Gesetze, die für die Natur gelten und ihre Wirksamkeit beschreiben, wie der Philosoph Immanuel Kant im späten 18. Jahrhundert zum ersten Mal erkannte. Die Gesetze der Natur finden sich nicht in der Natur, wie er schrieb, und können folglich dort auch nicht gefunden oder entdeckt werden. Die Gesetze der Natur finden sich vielmehr im Menschen, der sie folglich erfindet und dabei der Natur vorschreibt. Physikalische Gesetze sind ”freie Erfindungen eines menschlichen Geistes”, wie Albert Einstein im 20. Jahrhundert schreiben wird, um so seine eigenen Erfahrungen vom wissenschaftlichen Verständnis von Raum und Zeit zusammenzufassen und das Wunder der Wissenschaft erkennen zu lassen.
(Ernst Peter Fischer; "Das Grosse Buch vom Menschen"; S.301)
Die eigentliche Spannung für das kommende Jahrhundert liegt meiner Ansicht nach in der Frage, ob jemand auftaucht, der in der Lage sein wird, eine Theorie aufzustellen, mit der all die Daten zusammenfassend verständlich gemacht werden können.

In farming, as in gardening, I happen to believe that if you treat the land with love and respect (in particular, respect for the idea that it has an almost living soul, bound up in the mysterious, everlasting cycles of nature) then it will repay you in kind.

Das schönste Glück des denkenden Menschen ist, das Erforschliche erforscht zu haben und das Unerforschliche ruhig zu verehren.
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe; "Über Naturwissenschaft")
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe hat geschrieben:
“Das Schicksal jedes Volkes und jeder Zeit hängt von den Menschen unter 25 Jahren ab.”
Das soll man bei jeder Erinnerung (weltweit) an den Tag des Mauerfalls vor 25 Jahren wahr nehmen. Damit uns das gelingt, bekommen wir von dem Meister noch andere Hinweise, wie diesen:
„Des Menschen größtes Verdienst bleibt wohl, wenn er die Umstände soviel als möglich bestimmt und sich so wenig wie möglich von ihnen bestimmen lässt.“

"Visionäre oder Erbsenzähler: Welche Talente werden in unserer Schule gefördert? Lehren bedeutet nicht, ein Fass zu füllen, sondern ein Feuer anzufachen, hat ein berühmter Mensch (Heraklit) einmal gesagt."

"Civilization and Enlightenment need not to be alternatives in explaining declines of violence. In some periods, tacit norms of empathy, self-control, and cooperation may take the lead, and rationally articulated principles of equality, nonviolence, and human rights may follow. In other periods, it may go in the other direction.""
(Steven Pinker, “The Better Angels of Our Nature; Why violence has declined”; Viking, 2011; p.185)
"I was confronted with this reality: all the (stem) cells were genetically identical, but they had a different fate: fat, muscle, bone. So I said this simple question: What control the fate of cells? The answer is – the environment. It was the only thing that was different (in my experiments). So I started to realize: oh my goodness, I am teaching “genes control life” to the medical students, and yet the cells were revealing to me that the environment controls their life."

"Let me put this conclusion once again in my own words. We everybody, today on the earth living, are children from one or another Atlantis, the last civilization of the last species of the Genus Homo Sapiens Neanderthalensis. And I must warn everybody: I am annoyed very much and could be even impolite maybe if somebody would liked to call my great-great-grandparents as coarse, uneducated cavemen."
(From the book “Atlantis of the Neanderthals” by Peter Jakubowski.)
"Science is regarded as a process governed by rationality, logic and truth. The scientist is expected to carefully and objectively observe, collect and classify information before formulating a hypothesis in order to explain the data and to predict what might happen under various conditions. All theories are subject to modification or replacement as new knowledge is generated. If it were not so we would all still subscribe to the views of Thales who, in the 6th century BC, described the Earth as a flat disc floating on water that he called 'the universal element'."
(From the book “Civilization One; The World is not as you thought it was”, by Christopher Knight and Alan Butler.)
"All any of us can do is make choices, as individuals, to live positive and nurturing lives that are filled with love and light, rather than with darkness and with hate and, if we make that decision at the individual level, every one of us, then the light is going to grow in the world."
