"Earth, the only planet with free choice in the Milky Way Galaxy"

“.. A billion years ago, they (Pleiadians) went through a change and they went through a shift, and they had free choice. Back then, they were the only planet that did in their time, and eventually they went through a metamorphosis of consciousness. ”

“.. So again, we tell you that the ones who came to help seed you approximately 100,000 to 200,000 Earth years ago were the Pleiadians who had gone into graduate status and who had changed consciousness. They had become quantum with free choice, and you have parts of their DNA within you. ..”

“..You're surrounded by divine beings who keep you safe and will continue while this planet of only free choice – the only one at the moment – makes its decision. You're turning the corner of consciousness and they all know it, for they've all been through it and they remember it. Oh dear ones, consciousness is volatile! You've seen it change so slowly, but it's about to change faster. It's not going to take generations and generations as in the past. Instead, you're going to see real-time changes. Humans won't wait to have children for them to grow up and have children. ..”

"The Quantum Factor" – Apr 10, 2011 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Galaxies, Universe, Intelligent design, Benevolent design, Aliens, Nikola Tesla (Quantum energy), Inter-Planetary Travel, DNA, Genes, Stem Cells, Cells, Rejuvenation, Shift of Human Consciousness, Spontaneous Remission, Religion, Dictators, Africa, China, Nuclear Power, Sustainable Development, Animals, Global Unity.. etc.) - (Text Version)

“.. In time, the quantum factor will be discovered on this planet. When it is, it will be highly controversial, and it's going to fly in the face of logic and 3D and the way things work via the scientific method. The ramp-up to all this is difficult. The old souls in front of me have signed on to work this new energy and they've waded through lifetimes, just waiting for this. What would you do as a scientist if the experiments before you had "a mind of their own"? What would you think if magnetics, gravity and light could only be assembled in a certain way that created healing and never a destructive alignment? All this is going to redefine some of the basic forces in the Universe. Intelligent design is only the first, and even today many astronomers and physicists still think it's an anomaly. 

That will be the next largest discovery on the planet. It's been held back from you because it takes a higher vibrating consciousness to create and understand it. When any planet discovers a quantum energy and is able to use it, you could go to that planet and know that you will meet high-consciousness entities. This has never been given to you before that, for within the quantum factor contains the secret of interplanetary travel using large, entangled states. There are ways of doing things you never thought could happen. You can throw away your rocket ships. You're on the edge of that.  ..”

“… And so, dear Human Being, you have the ability to start to return to an energy that you thought you'd lost, where Human beings are allowed to live longer and it doesn't destroy the environment. They don't overcrowd themselves because they can control it through their minds instead of laws... and through wisdom.

Some day you'll meet the star seeds, your Pleiadian sisters and brothers. They're even here now, since they are quantum. You've got Pleiadian ancestors who live a very, very long time in a graduate situation in a planet that went through the test just like yours. And it developed a quantum factor. They have benevolence and they have quantum energy. That's how they get here instantly and return, and they'll never interrupt your free choice. That's also why they don't land and say hello. Instead, they sit and cheer on the sidelines for what you've finally done. They are waiting with you to celebrate the December solstice of 2012... the half way point of the 36 year shift you are in. …”

Originally an audio engineer, Carroll claims that he began to channel communication with an entity from a higher dimension called Kryon in 1989. He describes Kryon as an angelic loving entity from the Source (or "Central Sun") who has been with the Earth "since the beginning" and belonging to the same "Family" of Archangel Michael.
The information he publishes, both printed and online, is intended to help humans ascend to a higher vibrational level.

"Hearing the Voice of Spirit - The Dark and Light Balance" – (Kryon Channelling by Lee Carroll)

Kryon.com, February 20, 2016

This live channelling was given in Sarasota, Florida.

Lee Carroll
To help the reader, this channelling has been revisited [by Lee and Kryon] to provide even clearer understanding. Sometime information is even added. Often what happens live has implied energy within it, which carries a kind of communication that the printed page does not. So enjoy this enhanced message given in Sarasota, Florida.

Greetings, dear ones, I Am Kryon of Magnetic Service. The energy of the day is so different than when my first experience took place with my partner. So much has taken place in the way we expected. My partner teaches about potentials verses reality, and when I met him in 1989 the information I presented was as real then as it is now. I told him that there would be no nuclear war at the millennium; there would be a change of consciousness instead and that the magnetic grid of the planet would move. Now science has established a connection between Human consciousness and that very grid I spoke of. Everything I mentioned has taken place.

What I present next is one of the most esoteric things you can imagine: I will tell the story about free choice and where it has taken you and about Human consciousness development. It's not complex, but if you just tuned in, it may be a little strange.

Humanity has free choice, not just to do what it wishes to do without intervention from Spirit, but it also decides where it takes itself and the energy and level of its own consciousness. Humanity decides how it works and thinks and if it cooperates with itself or not. This is the free choice of humanity. This entire free choice puzzle is not a test of the Humans, but rather it is a test and battle between dark and light.

We have told you that your soul is eternal and that you live over and over and over. Your life experiences on this plant are vast and many. Do you think it's possible through many generations that you might be able to raise yourself from your bootstraps, increase the consciousness of humanity, and graduate into that which is peace on Earth? If so, it would require a totally different paradigm of existence. Can you change this much? I came in 1989 because that is the exact potential now, and it's measured by something that I will now speak of.

Your Immediate History

The entire reason that things took place in the 1980s the way they did is the "wild card" that you experienced, which was the fall of the Soviets. This was not only unexpected by your experts, but it was shocking to all of the planet. These big, unexpected shifts are tellers, messages of changing times, and of an increased consciousness for humanity. Human nature is beginning to change, to grow up and get out of that which I call "the playground of consciousness" and move into a more grown-up "elegance of consciousness". This will be one that creates togetherness and peace, which is just the beginning of a new kind of Human and a new kind of society.

I told you earlier that we might title this communication, "Hearing the Voice of Spirit" or "Hearing the Voice of God". This, of course, is a metaphor. People who tune in spiritually don't normally hear a voice from the sky. Hearing the voice of Spirit is a metaphor for being tuned in to the intuition from your own Higher-Self. The Higher-Self is that spiritual part of you that connects with your eternal soul. It is what most seekers strive to connect with and it gives you help with your own life, and in that, helps the planet.

The reason this intuition is so hard to hear or discern is that there's a low, constant drone, you might say, which is a metaphor for a noise or rumble that seems to obfuscate, or cover up, the message. It's like trying to hear something while there is a constant noise. It's the best metaphor we can give of how massive darkness can cover light. But the noise level of this drone is starting to decrease. So, what happens when you get a better, clearer message? You change; the world changes; those around you also hear better and even those who don't want to hear it will still know there is something different happening.

Again, this hearing is a metaphor. The meaning is really discerning the intuition of what has integrity or not, what's going on with your own life, and the ability to enhance the feeling of coming potentials. All of that is hearing the voice of Spirit. It's the Human Being starting to "grow up" and have a higher consciousness.

The Relationship of DNA to Consciousness

Now, the hardest thing for us to teach is what my partner has been teaching for some years. It's hard because it's not something that you have been told before in this way. Your consciousness is related to your multidimensional body. The easiest way for you to approach this idea is this metaphor: Your DNA is not working at 100 percent. Instead, it's working in the thirties percentage area. It's not even performing at half of what it was designed to do. There is no instrument that is going to clamp around your DNA and give it a percentage reading. But this measurement metaphor is the best we can do to tell you where you are at when it comes to the potential consciousness of humanity. I want to give you some information that you need to understand - how this all started and what happened.

If you had to start a test of consciousness on the planet, the fairest thing would be to have it equal or midpoint of low and high. For this metaphor, you would have to start with the same amount of light and dark. That's the way it was in the beginning. That is the design.

We have given you the history of humanity in the past. Your entire history is extremely short, for the galaxy and your solar system have been here for more than 4 billion years. Yet humanity as you know it really only started 200,000 years ago. I didn't say, "Humans", I said, "Humanity as you know it", for the entire test started with the creation story, the seeding of the knowledge of light and dark. I'm speaking of Humans with altered DNA - you with only 23 chromosomes. Then there was another 100,000 years to have this develop for all Humans. Then Lemuria and some other "seed areas" helped with the teaching for another 50,000 years. When the seeding was really finished and the test was working, it was only yesterday! You're new! If you looked at the length of time Earth has been here as a 24-hour clock, then you compare when an “aware" Human got here, you would have arrived at the last second! All of known history happened in the last second of this time clock!

The irony is that those listening to this, and some of those in the audience, have been there for all of it. Old soul, we've given you this explanation many times: You remember from your Akash what you think to be Atlantis, sinking islands, wars and chaos. It just means you've "been there and done that". You've seen the cataclysms and you've been there when many historic things took place. They are etched into a memory you can't really sort it out well, but you carry it with you. What it means is you are an old soul and, perhaps, you helped start the planet!

The Sisterhood [referring to the Lemurian Sisterhood as created by Dr. Amber Wolf] is a great example. For those of you who feel inclined to come to the Sisterhood gatherings, you will celebrate a beginning consciousness that "rings" within you as a positive ancient memory. It celebrates a time when women were given credit for their intuitive power and were the shamanic leadership of society. Who better to do this than the life-givers of all humanity? It represents a time, in the beginning, of equality and wisdom that was the beginning of the light/dark test.

The DNA, at the beginning of the test, was set at 30 percent. Now, standby because I told you the beginning was equal, but this doesn't sound equal, does it? The percentage quickly went to 35 - quickly, to create a fair test, because that is where it belonged (35%) to have full equality with the darkness. Now, stay tuned and listen, and you will learn why this is fair. I'll give you something you should know: These numbers show you the power of light over dark. When you had the 35 percent of DNA working, it was balanced with the 65 percent of darkness on the planet.

Now, for those of you who don't really understand these numbers, let me explain. The balance of light and dark was indeed equal, but because light is more powerful, it only took 35 percent of light to make that happen. This ought to show you that the dark is weaker than you are. You had less of a percentage of the planet of light, and yet you were equal to a larger percent of darkness. Light is more powerful, and you don't need as much of it to be equal, even with a lower consciousness.

The Process of Percentage of Efficiency of DNA

Now let me tell you something about what happens at 35 percent of DNA efficiency. It shows up in consciousness as well as biological efficiency. At 35 percent, there is an intuitive understanding of gender balance on the planet - who does what and why. This is what is celebrated today in the Lemurian Sisterhood gatherings. It was a time when the genders of Earth respected one another and understood that the feminine gender is the one that is more in touch with Spirit. Not only were women a bit more in touch with multidimensional things, but they are the ones who mother all of humanity (both genders) as teachers of the children. All men are held and adored and taught by the mother. Therefore, they are the ones who would help guide all the societies of Earth.

With free choice, the percentage of DNA efficiently started to go down as humanity grew. As soon as the DNA started to lose percentage, the gender balance was dysfunctional. If you want to have a test of any society, anywhere on the planet, and you want to know the DNA percentage number [consciousness quota] as a society, there's an easy test: How do they perceive and treat their women? The higher the DNA functionality, the more the feminine divine is honored. This is the test! Different cultures create different DNA consciousness, even at the same time on the planet. So you can have a culture on Earth at 25 percent and one at 37 - and if you did, they would indeed clash.

In the Middle Ages, or perhaps before, the planet went to 25 percent. If you doubt that, all you have to do is look at gender dysfunction. The women went from being respected and being the shamans to second class, even third class, then they were seen along with the animals. No balance at all! That's what happens when the percentage starts to dip in a survival mode consciousness. There is no elegance in consciousness during this time and no appreciation for art or culture. There is instead the dysfunctions of war, hatred, uncaring, anger, drama and perpetuation of horror.

Then recently, the average percent started to go up again, and you hit the 30 and 31 mark. History showed that women were finally seen and the respect again began to be rekindled. It happened slowly and it's very telling. In more elegant societies, women were partially given the right to vote and then it got better. You went to an average of 32. That's when the Soviet Union fell over, disabling a nuclear war at the millennium. That's also when you celebrated the Harmonic Convergence, and I arrived to begin to train my partner in 1989.

Oh, dear ones, there are still those on the planet who feature tremendous gender dysfunction. Lower consciousness society can't "look up" to see anything better. Darkness can't see the light, and we told you about this back in 1993. Someday you will look backwards in history and say, “What was wrong with us? Why didn't we see the obvious?" When DNA is at 25 and 30 percent, the strongest win. It's a survival consciousness and very little else matters. If you wish to see a balanced society working at 35 and above, look at the gender balance. Respect and appreciation will be there.

Learn from the Ancients

Let me give you something else that my partner always talks about: Find the oldest society, the most long-lived culture on the planet. Then look at the teaching of their elders to find out what they believed in the past and did. What do their records say? Let me tell you what the records say: Women were the shamans! It was acknowledged that they had better intuitive ability. Imagine having somebody able to guide you, who could see and feel the voice of God? It was clear to them! That's gender balance. The men knew it and depended upon it, and the women depended upon the men to do the things that men do best, to hunt and gather and provide. Gender balance! This system is still around in many of the indigenous societies of this planet who have been around a very long time. It never changed.

Continuing the History

When the DNA percentage got to 32, I spoke to my partner and gave him the choice to tune in [1989]. The snowball of an advanced DNA was rolling. This planet was starting to lift itself up on its way to 35, on its way to an equal balance again. Perhaps it will even go to 36, where dark would run the other way.

Dear ones, we told you that 35 percent was equal dark/light, but you've never seen that in your lifetime until right now! In fact, it's getting higher than that and dark is running the other way. It's coming out of the woodwork, as they say, indicating that it's being squeezed out of many places where it formerly hid. Imagine a dark army on the planet who can recruit young people even from your own country! This dark army is not recruiting Americans, it is recruiting darkness! This represents Humans who are invested in darkness and have a very young Akash and a very old consciousness. They willingly will be dysfunctional with the others, and they haven't got a clue about what's really happening. Darkness cannot look up to a higher level. A fool doesn't know he is a fool. Listen to me, darkness cannot look up and see light. It's blind to higher purpose. It only sees the strength of dark. It doesn't understand light, so it's not wise and can be defeated. It doesn't understand that it is going to lose. All it can see is itself. It's so obvious, is it not?

What is happening now supports what we are saying. What is going on right now on this planet? We said it earlier: Right now as I speak, you have the most dysfunctional politics you've ever had in this country. The reason? There is massive change going on! The fighting, drama and seemingly odd behaviors of many represent those who are tired of an old establishment government that is itself dysfunctional. The thought is, "Anything would be better than what we have now and the past!" This is what happens when higher consciousness can see something better as it starts to grow from a lower one that it has been participating in.

This is different for all of you, and it's because of a continued increase in the percentage of DNA. It's for everyone, and not just for those who might be in a belief system like those in this room. Integrity, transparency and the longing for systems with integrity that actually work for people is at hand. It is the longing for integrity in high places instead of dysfunction. It's an awakening! You have a population that is tired of an old energy because it's starting to hear the voice.

Who "Hears" It?

The voice of Spirit is for all humanity and not for a select few. However, the select few who are old souls will understand it better and be able to discern and know better what the message is about. As the noise, confusion and the drone of darkness start to become more equal to the light, many will start hearing Spirit for the first time. They won't know it's Spirit, but instead it will be "the sense of what's better for us" and an intuition that is new. For the masses who are not interested in being in this room, all it is to them is a new beginning, a new awareness. They don't know what they're hearing or feeling. They just know they want change and a new feeling of "what's right". Old souls on this planet will recognize this clearer message for what it is and will start receiving messages and guidance from it. That's the difference! But all humanity is aware of the change at some level.

You're creeping toward 36. Even with the things that are around you, as you defeat the darkness on this planet, you'll be at 36. Now, that means you're winning. It also means the drone of noise that hides the voice of God is going to start diminishing, and things will start to clear up regarding understanding the messages. Intuition won't sail by so fast as it has in the past, where you are not certain what you heard. Intuition will stick around longer and will speak to you in a clearer voice. You may even be able to stop it and examine it!

The problem with intuition at the present is that it's covered by the drone-noise. This is a metaphor, dear ones. I hope you understand. Covered by the drone means that your intuitive thoughts are elusive and soft because this underlying energy keeps it from being seen and heard clearly. The logic inside your brain keeps stuffing it down all of the time, saying, "It's not accurate. It's just your wishful thinking or your imagination." This is all part of that which is the lower percentage number of your DNA. As the percentage starts to creep toward 36, everything changes. The logic of your brain changes, because it's in the DNA. There is an awakening, a more efficient DNA, and you start to think differently. All the things regarding Human nature that you've been told about in psychology studies start to morph into something else entirely. Wisdom becomes intuitive, not something that you wish you had. Society starts to change in general. Solutions to the unsolvable begin to appear. New, wiser thought starts to be heard on the media as humanity starts to grow up and graduate from the playground of rock throwing and name calling. Programs to help each other really start to work. Funding is far more available for projects that make a difference for the poor.

You're at 35. There's an equality here, you're starting to see the dark and light, and it's changing everything. You take a look at history and you've come a long way, but it took a long time to get here. Dear ones, we've seen this process before and the snowball is rolling. There isn't anything in the way that's going to stop it. In the path of this snowball of higher consciousness are all kinds of things that will be run over and perish. Part of this is what you call "the establishment". Watch for some very big established things to fall over! The snowball will simply knock them down.

Don't be alarmed and don't think it's the end of the planet when certain kinds of things happen that create fear, for this is just about being at 35, going to 36. Remember, the darkness is starting to react and be afraid of the light. The results are a battle where darkness will try its best to beat up your light and make you afraid. However, you're in the right place at the right time and will prevail.  I've said enough.

When you walk out of here, I hope you understand this message. Listen to it again if you have to. It's about that which is the light and dark quotient of the planet and where you are. It's about the fact that you're winning, and that's why I came. It's hard to talk to those who are winning when they've never won before and they have a consciousness of loss. That's what you're working on the most. Stand tall when you leave this place and know who you are. This message of Kryon never changes, for it represent the truth.

And so it is.

33 rescued lions flown from Peru to S. Africa

Lima (AFP) - More than 30 lions rescued from abuse in Peruvian and Colombian circuses were flown Friday to South Africa, in what campaigners called the largest-ever airlift of big cats.

The 33 lions, with names such as Zeus and Shakira, were freed after the use of wild animals in circuses was outlawed in Peru in 2011 and Colombia in 2013.

Saved from the lion tamer's whip, they have been rounded up with the help of authorities by Animal Defenders International (ADI), an animal rights charity.

"It's truly wonderful that these lions, after a lifetime of suffering and abuse in circuses, are going home to Africa," said the president of ADI, Jan Creamer.

"All of the lions when they arrive from the circuses have health problems, parasites, disease," she added.

"All of their lives they haven't had enough food, so they have long-term malnutrition problems."

Recent months have been spent in straw-lined cages in a refuge north of Lima, however, they have been well fed and are in generally good health, Creamer said.

Twenty-four lions rescued in Peru were driven from their temporary rescue center to Lima airport to be picked up by a cargo plane that brought another nine over from Colombia.

Late Friday, the airlift took off, transporting the big cats to their new life.

"We are on our way!" read a post on the ADI website.

The contingent of big cats includes Shakira, named after the Colombian pop singer. Her minders say she likes to play with a tire and eat watermelons.

From one of 10 Peruvian circuses comes "Ricardo, the one-eyed lion" and from another "Joseph, the almost-blind lion."

'Heading home to paradise'

Together, the 33 were to take a 15-hour flight to South Africa in travel cages inside the plane chartered by ADI.

They will arrive on Saturday in Johannesburg and be taken on to the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in the north of the country.

"The lions will be in their natural habitat for the first time in their lives," Creamer said. "They should fit right into that habitat. It's the best environment for them."

ADI says it is the biggest transfer of such large captive animals ever.

In the circuses the lions were poorly fed and trucked around in cages, the group said. The Colombian circuses gave up the nine lions voluntarily but police had to launch raids to free the lions in Peru.

The rescuers say that one of the Peru contingent, Smith, attacked a teacher from a school party when she was invited into his cage by a lion tamer.

"Almost all of the rescued lions have been mutilated to remove their claws, one has lost an eye, another is almost blind, and many have smashed and broken teeth so would not survive in the wild," ADI said in a statement.

At their new home, "the lions will enjoy large natural enclosures situated in pristine African bush, complete with drinking pools, platforms and toys," it added.

"The lion habitats will be steadily expanded over the coming months as the lions become familiar with their new life and are introduced to each other."

The cost of the transfer is $10,000 per cat, ADI said.

"These lions have endured hell on earth," Creamer said.

"Now they are heading home to paradise."

Dutch lawyer starts criminal case against tobacco firms

DutchNews, April 29, 2016

Photo: DutchNews.nl
A Dutch lawyer and lung cancer patient are planning to take tobacco companies to court for for producing cigarettes designed to turn people into addicts as quickly as possible. 

Lawyer Benedicte Ficq and cancer victim Anne Marie van Veen are putting together a criminal case against cigarette producers, arguing that out of court settlements do not go far enough.

‘I want to see tobacco firms prosecuted for deliberately damaging people’s health,’ Ficq told television programme RTL Late Night. 

Tobacco firms cannot hide behind the freedom of choice of people to smoke because they are deliberately influencing smokers’ behaviour, Ficq and Van Veen argue. 


‘To limit that freedom, addictive chemicals such as nicotine and other additives are put into cigarettes,’ they say. ‘And [the companies] overcome our natural aversion to poisons by adding substances like menthol.’ 

Nor does the argument that the government does not ban smoking hold water, Ficq said. ‘If I fed my children rat poison every day and they eventually die, I would be prosecuted for murder,’ she said. ‘The tobacco industry is simply getting away with it.’ 

Ficq and Van Veen are appealing for other people to sign up to their campaign.

"The Recalibration of Awareness – Apr 20/21, 2012 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Old Energy, Recalibration LecturesGod / Creator, Religions/Spiritual systems (Catholic Church, Priests/Nun’s, Worship, John Paul Pope, Women in the Church otherwise church will go, Current Pope won’t do it), Middle East, Jews, Governments will change (Internet, Media, Democracies, Dictators, North Korea, Nations voted at once), Integrity (Businesses, Tobacco Companies, Bankers/ Financial Institutes, Pharmaceutical company to collapse), Illuminati (Started in Greece, with Shipping, Financial markets, Stock markets, Pharmaceutical money (fund to build Africa, to develop)), Shift of Human Consciousness, (Old) Souls, Women, Masters to/already come back, Global Unity.... etc.) (Text version)

“… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. 

The Next Ones to Fall

There's something potentially coming that you should know about, and I've reported it before two other times. But I want you to hear it again. What other very large industries don't have integrity, but also have a great deal of money? Prepare for the crumbling of big pharma in America. It is starting now and when the reports happen and the movie is created [smile], Americans will wake up to the fact that they have an enormously wealthy industry that keeps people sick for money.

You're not going to like it and you're not going to tolerate it. Watch. What I say today is not fortune telling, dear ones. I am reporting the potentials of Human nature before me. I'm reporting that awareness is starting to grab that which is inappropriate on this planet, what you call old energy, and slowly is beginning to move it to a place you never thought it would go. It's a place of integrity that your parents told you was impossible for large institutions, but here you are living it. Along with this also will be changes in the very large business of insurance, as we told you before. …”

“…I'm in Canada and I know it, but I will tell those listening and reading in the American audience the following: Get ready! Because there are some institutions that are yet to fall, ones that don't have integrity and that could never be helped with a bail out. Again, we tell you the biggest one is big pharma, and we told you that before. It's inevitable. If not now, then in a decade. It's inevitable and they will fight to stay alive and they will not be crossing the bridge. For on the other side of the bridge is a new way, not just for medicine but for care. Paradigms that have not yet been thought of, which don't represent any system that currently exists, will be created and developed by young minds who have concepts that the seniors don't know about. Things that don't have integrity today will fall over tomorrow. Just get ready. It's all part of what's on the other side of the bridge. And the old energy won't like it, and they will object. …”

The Evolutionary Argument Against Reality

The cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman uses evolutionary game theory to show that our perceptions of an independent reality must be illusions.

Quanta Magazine, Amanda Gefter, April 21, 2016

David McNew for Quanta Magazine

As we go about our daily lives, we tend to assume that our perceptions — sights, sounds, textures, tastes — are an accurate portrayal of the real world. Sure, when we stop and think about it — or when we find ourselves fooled by a perceptual illusion — we realize with a jolt that what we perceive is never the world directly, but rather our brain’s best guess at what that world is like, a kind of internal simulation of an external reality. Still, we bank on the fact that our simulation is a reasonably decent one. If it wasn’t, wouldn’t evolution have weeded us out by now? The true reality might be forever beyond our reach, but surely our senses give us at least an inkling of what it’s really like.

Not so, says Donald D. Hoffman, a professor of cognitive science at the University of California, Irvine. Hoffman has spent the past three decades studying perception, artificial intelligence, evolutionary game theory and the brain, and his conclusion is a dramatic one: The world presented to us by our perceptions is nothing like reality. What’s more, he says, we have evolution itself to thank for this magnificent illusion, as it maximizes evolutionary fitness by driving truth to extinction.

Getting at questions about the nature of reality, and disentangling the observer from the observed, is an endeavor that straddles the boundaries of neuroscience and fundamental physics. On one side you’ll find researchers scratching their chins raw trying to understand how a three-pound lump of gray matter obeying nothing more than the ordinary laws of physics can give rise to first-person conscious experience. This is the aptly named “hard problem.”

On the other side are quantum physicists, marveling at the strange fact that quantum systems don’t seem to be definite objects localized in space until we come along to observe them. Experiment after experiment has shown — defying common sense — that if we assume that the particles that make up ordinary objects have an objective, observer-independent existence, we get the wrong answers. The central lesson of quantum physics is clear: There are no public objects sitting out there in some preexisting space. As the physicist John Wheeler put it, “Useful as it is under ordinary circumstances to say that the world exists ‘out there’ independent of us, that view can no longer be upheld.”

So while neuroscientists struggle to understand how there can be such a thing as a first-person reality, quantum physicists have to grapple with the mystery of how there can be anything but a first-person reality. In short, all roads lead back to the observer. And that’s where you can find Hoffman — straddling the boundaries, attempting a mathematical model of the observer, trying to get at the reality behind the illusion. Quanta Magazine caught up with him to find out more.

QUANTA MAGAZINE: People often use Darwinian evolution as an argument that our perceptions accurately reflect reality. They say, “Obviously we must be latching onto reality in some way because otherwise we would have been wiped out a long time ago. If I think I’m seeing a palm tree but it’s really a tiger, I’m in trouble.”

DONALD HOFFMAN: Right. The classic argument is that those of our ancestors who saw more accurately had a competitive advantage over those who saw less accurately and thus were more likely to pass on their genes that coded for those more accurate perceptions, so after thousands of generations we can be quite confident that we’re the offspring of those who saw accurately, and so we see accurately. That sounds very plausible. But I think it is utterly false. It misunderstands the fundamental fact about evolution, which is that it’s about fitness functions — mathematical functions that describe how well a given strategy achieves the goals of survival and reproduction. The mathematical physicist Chetan Prakash proved a theorem that I devised that says: According to evolution by natural selection, an organism that sees reality as it is will never be more fit than an organism of equal complexity that sees none of reality but is just tuned to fitness. Never.

You’ve done computer simulations to show this. Can you give an example?

Suppose in reality there’s a resource, like water, and you can quantify how much of it there is in an objective order — very little water, medium amount of water, a lot of water. Now suppose your fitness function is linear, so a little water gives you a little fitness, medium water gives you medium fitness, and lots of water gives you lots of fitness — in that case, the organism that sees the truth about the water in the world can win, but only because the fitness function happens to align with the true structure in reality. Generically, in the real world, that will never be the case. Something much more natural is a bell curve  — say, too little water you die of thirst, but too much water you drown, and only somewhere in between is good for survival. Now the fitness function doesn’t match the structure in the real world. And that’s enough to send truth to extinction. For example, an organism tuned to fitness might see small and large quantities of some resource as, say, red, to indicate low fitness, whereas they might see intermediate quantities as green, to indicate high fitness. Its perceptions will be tuned to fitness, but not to truth. It won’t see any distinction between small and large — it only sees red — even though such a distinction exists in reality.

But how can seeing a false reality be beneficial to an organism’s survival?

There’s a metaphor that’s only been available to us in the past 30 or 40 years, and that’s the desktop interface. Suppose there’s a blue rectangular icon on the lower right corner of your computer’s desktop — does that mean that the file itself is blue and rectangular and lives in the lower right corner of your computer? Of course not. But those are the only things that can be asserted about anything on the desktop — it has color, position and shape. Those are the only categories available to you, and yet none of them are true about the file itself or anything in the computer. They couldn’t possibly be true. That’s an interesting thing. You could not form a true description of the innards of the computer if your entire view of reality was confined to the desktop. And yet the desktop is useful. That blue rectangular icon guides my behavior, and it hides a complex reality that I don’t need to know. That’s the key idea. Evolution has shaped us with perceptions that allow us to survive. They guide adaptive behaviors. But part of that involves hiding from us the stuff we don’t need to know. And that’s pretty much all of reality, whatever reality might be. If you had to spend all that time figuring it out, the tiger would eat you.

So everything we see is one big illusion?

We’ve been shaped to have perceptions that keep us alive, so we have to take them seriously. If I see something that I think of as a snake, I don’t pick it up. If I see a train, I don’t step in front of it. I’ve evolved these symbols to keep me alive, so I have to take them seriously. But it’s a logical flaw to think that if we have to take it seriously, we also have to take it literally.

If snakes aren’t snakes and trains aren’t trains, what are they?

Snakes and trains, like the particles of physics, have no objective, observer-independent features. The snake I see is a description created by my sensory system to inform me of the fitness consequences of my actions. Evolution shapes acceptable solutions, not optimal ones. A snake is an acceptable solution to the problem of telling me how to act in a situation. My snakes and trains are my mental representations; your snakes and trains are your mental representations.

How did you first become interested in these ideas?

As a teenager, I was very interested in the question “Are we machines?” My reading of the science suggested that we are. But my dad was a minister, and at church they were saying we’re not. So I decided I needed to figure it out for myself. It’s sort of an important personal question — if I’m a machine, I would like to find that out! And if I’m not, I’d like to know, what is that special magic beyond the machine? So eventually in the 1980s I went to the artificial intelligence lab at MIT and worked on machine perception. The field of vision research was enjoying a newfound success in developing mathematical models for specific visual abilities. I noticed that they seemed to share a common mathematical structure, so I thought it might be possible to write down a formal structure for observation that encompassed all of them, perhaps all possible modes of observation. I was inspired in part by Alan Turing. When he invented the Turing machine, he was trying to come up with a notion of computation, and instead of putting bells and whistles on it, he said, Let’s get the simplest, most pared down mathematical description that could possibly work. And that simple formalism is the foundation for the science of computation. So I wondered, could I provide a similarly simple formal foundation for the science of observation?

A mathematical model of consciousness.

That’s right. My intuition was, there are conscious experiences. I have pains, tastes, smells, all my sensory experiences, moods, emotions and so forth. So I’m just going to say: One part of this consciousness structure is a set of all possible experiences. When I’m having an experience, based on that experience I may want to change what I’m doing. So I need to have a collection of possible actions I can take and a decision strategy that, given my experiences, allows me to change how I’m acting. That’s the basic idea of the whole thing. I have a space X of experiences, a space G of actions, and an algorithm D that lets me choose a new action given my experiences. Then I posited a W for a world, which is also a probability space. Somehow the world affects my perceptions, so there’s a perception map P from the world to my experiences, and when I act, I change the world, so there’s a map A from the space of actions to the world. That’s the entire structure. Six elements. The claim is: This is the structure of consciousness. I put that out there so people have something to shoot at.

But if there’s a W, are you saying there is an external world?

Here’s the striking thing about that. I can pull the W out of the model and stick a conscious agent in its place and get a circuit of conscious agents. In fact, you can have whole networks of arbitrary complexity. And that’s the world.

The world is just other conscious agents?

I call it conscious realism: Objective reality is just conscious agents, just points of view. Interestingly, I can take two conscious agents and have them interact, and the mathematical structure of that interaction also satisfies the definition of a conscious agent. This mathematics is telling me something. I can take two minds, and they can generate a new, unified single mind. Here’s a concrete example. We have two hemispheres in our brain. But when you do a split-brain operation, a complete transection of the corpus callosum, you get clear evidence of two separate consciousnesses. Before that slicing happened, it seemed there was a single unified consciousness. So it’s not implausible that there is a single conscious agent. And yet it’s also the case that there are two conscious agents there, and you can see that when they’re split. I didn’t expect that, the mathematics forced me to recognize this. It suggests that I can take separate observers, put them together and create new observers, and keep doing this ad infinitum. It’s conscious agents all the way down.

If it’s conscious agents all the way down, all first-person points of view, what happens to science? Science has always been a third-person description of the world.

The idea that what we’re doing is measuring publicly accessible objects, the idea that objectivity results from the fact that you and I can measure the same object in the exact same situation and get the same results — it’s very clear from quantum mechanics that that idea has to go. Physics tells us that there are no public physical objects. So what’s going on? Here’s how I think about it. I can talk to you about my headache and believe that I am communicating effectively with you, because you’ve had your own headaches. The same thing is true as apples and the moon and the sun and the universe. Just like you have your own headache, you have your own moon. But I assume it’s relevantly similar to mine. That’s an assumption that could be false, but that’s the source of my communication, and that’s the best we can do in terms of public physical objects and objective science.

It doesn’t seem like many people in neuroscience or philosophy of mind are thinking about fundamental physics. Do you think that’s been a stumbling block for those trying to understand consciousness?

I think it has been. Not only are they ignoring the progress in fundamental physics, they are often explicit about it. They’ll say openly that quantum physics is not relevant to the aspects of brain function that are causally involved in consciousness. They are certain that it’s got to be classical properties of neural activity, which exist independent of any observers — spiking rates, connection strengths at synapses, perhaps dynamical properties as well. These are all very classical notions under Newtonian physics, where time is absolute and objects exist absolutely. And then [neuroscientists] are mystified as to why they don’t make progress. They don’t avail themselves of the incredible insights and breakthroughs that physics has made. Those insights are out there for us to use, and yet my field says, “We’ll stick with Newton, thank you. We’ll stay 300 years behind in our physics.”

I suspect they’re reacting to things like Roger Penrose and Stuart Hameroff’s model, where you still have a physical brain, it’s still sitting in space, but supposedly it’s performing some quantum feat. In contrast, you’re saying, “Look, quantum mechanics is telling us that we have to question the very notions of ‘physical things’ sitting in ‘space.’”

I think that’s absolutely true. The neuroscientists are saying, “We don’t need to invoke those kind of quantum processes, we don’t need quantum wave functions collapsing inside neurons, we can just use classical physics to describe processes in the brain.” I’m emphasizing the larger lesson of quantum mechanics: Neurons, brains, space … these are just symbols we use, they’re not real. It’s not that there’s a classical brain that does some quantum magic. It’s that there’s no brain! Quantum mechanics says that classical objects — including brains — don’t exist. So this is a far more radical claim about the nature of reality and does not involve the brain pulling off some tricky quantum computation. So even Penrose hasn’t taken it far enough. But most of us, you know, we’re born realists. We’re born physicalists. This is a really, really hard one to let go of.

To return to the question you started with as a teenager, are we machines?

The formal theory of conscious agents I’ve been developing is computationally universal — in that sense, it’s a machine theory. And it’s because the theory is computationally universal that I can get all of cognitive science and neural networks back out of it. Nevertheless, for now I don’t think we are machines — in part because I distinguish between the mathematical representation and the thing being represented. As a conscious realist, I am postulating conscious experiences as ontological primitives, the most basic ingredients of the world. I’m claiming that experiences are the real coin of the realm. The experiences of everyday life — my real feeling of a headache, my real taste of chocolate — that really is the ultimate nature of reality.

“… The entire galaxy revolves as one plate, in a very counter-intuitive way. The stars and the constellations do not orbit within the rules of Newtonian physics that you are used to seeing all around you in your own solar system. For the stars and clusters in your galaxy, distance from the center does not matter. All the stars rotate as one. This is because the galaxy is entangled with the middle of itself. In that state, there is no time or distance. The change of consciousness on this planet has changed the center of the galaxy. This is because what happens here, dear one, is "known" by the center.

It's interesting to us what your reaction to all this is scientifically. You saw that the "creative event" of your Universe is missing some energy in order for it to have formed as it did. In addition, the unusual way the galaxy rotates, as I just stated, was also noted. So you have calculated that for all this to be in place, there has to be missing 3D matter, and you have given it a name - dark matter. How funny! Did you ever think that there could be a multidimensional effect going on that you now can observe and calculate - that has immense power, but can't be seen? It's not "matter" at all and it's not 3D. It's quantum energy.

Let me tell you something about physics. Yet again, I'll make it simple. Everything your scientists have seen in physics happens in pairs. At the moment, there are four laws of physics in your three-dimensional paradigm. They represent two pairs of energy types. Eventually, there will be six. At the center of your galaxy is what you call a black hole, but it is not a single thing. It is a duality. There is no such thing as "singularity". You might say it's one energy with two parts - a weak and a strong quantum force. And the strangest thing is it knows who you are. It is the creator engine. It's different in other galaxies than this one. It's unique.

The very physics of your galaxy is postured by what you do here. The astronomers can look into the cosmos and they will discover different physics in different galaxies. Could it be that there's something going on in the other galaxies like this one? I'm not going to answer that. … “
