The Class-Domination Theory of Power

by G. William DomhoffNOTE: WhoRulesAmerica.net is largely based on my book,Who Rules America?, first published in 1967 and now in its7th edition. This on-line document is presented as a summary of some of the main ideas in that book.Who has predominant power in the United States? The short answer, from 1776 to the present, is: Those who have the money -- or more specifically, who own income-producing land and businesses -- have the power. George Washington was one of the biggest landowner [...]

Ancient Signs in the Sky: Did a Meteorite Change the Course of Christianity 2,000 Years Ago?


Detail, The Conversion of St. Paul. Paul and companions are knocked to the ground during the profound event.

Excerpt from ancient-origins.net

Did an ancient meteor have such a life-changing impact on witnesses of the day that it shaped a religion and altered the course of history? Astronomers theorize that the dramatic flash and boom that converted Paul the Apostle may have been an exploding meteor.

In the Christian Bible, it is written that a man named Saul experienced an event so extreme that it changed his views in an instant, and he became one of the most influential evangelists in early Christianity.

Saul was said to have been a vehement persecutor of the followers of Jesus and was traveling in search of disciples of Jesus for punishment. It is written in the fifth book of the New Testament, Acts of the Apostles, that Saul was on the road to Damascus, Syria, when a bright light appeared in the sky. So intense was the light that he was blinded for three days. What he heard was described as a great thunderous sound, or a divine voice. He and his companions are said to have been knocked to the ground by the force of the event. The experience was so profound that Saul changed his name to Paul, took up missionary journeys across the Mediterranean, and became instrumental in spreading Christianity.

The Conversion of Saint Paul – Paul and his companions are knocked to the ground by a resounding boom and brilliant light. Did a meteor cause this ancient event?

William Hartmann, co-founder of the Planetary Science Institute in the U.S. has connected Paul’s experience with similar accounts of exploding meteors, such as the well-recorded Chelyabinsk meteor which broke up over Russia in 2013, injuring over 1,500 people. The eyewitness descriptions and physical reactions to meteors or fireballs in the sky seem to parallel what is recorded about Paul.

If true, then it’s possible that an act of nature may have been contributory in the spread and evolution of Christianity in its early days, and therefore shaped the course of history.

In a study published in the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science, Hartmann cites major events like the meteors or asteroids over Chelyabinsk, Russia and Tunguska, Siberia as offering “opportunities to compare reactions of modern eyewitnesses to eyewitness accounts of possible ancient fireball events.” There are consistencies among the many accounts suggesting the biblical descriptions of Paul’s experience closely match known modern events, reports NewScientist.

In the biblical accounts, Paul was blinded for three days due to the intense light from the sky; it was “brighter than the sun, shining round me,” according to the text. This matches the Chelyabinsk meteor, as it was calculated to be shining around three times as bright as the sun. The blazing fireball made shadows move around the ground as it travelled.

Paul and his companions were said to have been knocked to the earth, and this also corresponds to the shockwave generated by the powerful Chelyabinsk meteor as it blasted out windows, knocked people off their feet, shook cars and buildings, and collapsed roofs.
The divine voice is said to have either boomed like thunder, or questioned Paul’s behavior (the exact sound is debated). Meteors create great, explosive booms and roars which can be scary or painful even for those who know what they’re experiencing.

To the ancients the incredible and unfamiliar natural celestial events were interpreted through cultural understandings of the day – which is to say, they were considered divine or damning.

The Chelyabinsk meteor gave off small amounts of radiation, enough to cause sunburn and temporary blindness in witnesses. Harmann suggests that Paul could have suffered photokeratitis, a temporary blindness from intense ultraviolet radiation, and this explains the return of his sight after healing.

Hartmann told NewScientist, “Everything they are describing in those three accounts in the book of Acts are exactly the sequence you see with a fireball.”

IBTimes writes that the Acts of Apostles text describes three events of bright lights “from heaven” which took place around Damascus during the 30s B.C. If meteorites can be found in Syria, and accurately dated to the relevant timeframes, it might give support to the published theories.

Hartmann’s research aim is not to discredit Christianity, but to demonstrate how the interpretation of ancient events may have shaped how we exist today, spiritually and culturally.

This wouldn’t be the first meteorite in history to have potentially inspired worship or acted as an agent of change. In antiquity meteorites were seen as messages from the gods, or profound omens, and many cultures saw fallen meteorites as religious icons to be worshiped or as objects of protection. Jewelry and art has also been created from the space rocks.

Each year devout Muslims make the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, circling the Kaaba, or black stone, and give a nod or a kiss to the meteorite that is said to rest inside the Grand Mosque. The worship of the Black Stone goes back to pre-Islamic shrines, when Semitic cultures used unusual stones to signify sites of reverence. According to Muslim belief, the stone originates from the time of Adam and the Islamic prophet Muhammad set the Black Stone in place after it fell from the skies.

In a more modern example, after the dramatic Chelyabinsk event over Russia in 2013, the ‘Church of the Meteorite’ was set up, and the followers hold rites on the shores of Lake Chebarkul where pieces of the space rock fell.

Some scientists regard the Conversion of Paul theory as speculation, but seem to welcome further evidence.
Bill Cooke, head of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office told NewScientist, “It’s well recorded that extraterrestrial impacts have helped to shape the evolution of life on this planet. If it was a Chelyabinsk fireball that was responsible for Paul’s conversion, then obviously that had a great impact on the growth of Christianity.”

Indeed, “Some scholars call Paul the second founder of Christianity” says Justin Meggitt, religious historian at the University of Cambridge. Without the fireball, and without Paul’s conversion, perhaps Christianity would be different than it is today.
“Christianity probably would be very different without him,” Meggitt concludes.

A Physicist’s Explanation of Why the Soul May Exist

Henry P. Stapp is a theoretical physicist at the University of California–Berkeley who worked with some of the founding fathers of quantum mechanics. He does not seek to prove that the soul exists, but he does say that the existence of the soul fits within the laws of physics.

He does not seek to prove that the soul exists, but he does say that the existence of the soul fits within the laws of physics.

It is not true to say belief in the soul is unscientific, according to Stapp. Here the word “soul” refers to a personality independent of the brain or the rest of the human body that can survive beyond death.  In his paper, “Compatibility of Contemporary Physical Theory With Personality Survival,” he wrote: “Strong doubts about personality survival based solely on the belief that postmortem survival is incompatible with the laws of physics are unfounded.”
He works with the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics—more or less the interpretation used by some of the founders of quantum mechanics, Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg. Even Bohr and Heisenberg had some disagreements on how quantum mechanics works, and understandings of the theory since that time have also been diverse. Stapp’s paper on the Copenhagen interpretation has been influential. It was written in the 1970s and Heisenberg wrote an appendix for it. 

Stapp noted of his own concepts: “There has been no hint in my previous descriptions (or conception) of this orthodox quantum mechanics of any notion of personality survival.”

Why Quantum Theory Could Hint at Life After Death

Stapp explains that the founders of quantum theory required scientists to essentially cut the world into two parts. Above the cut, classical mathematics could describe the physical processes empirically experienced. Below the cut, quantum mathematics describes a realm “which does not entail complete physical determinism.”

Of this realm below the cut, Stapp wrote: “One generally finds that the evolved state of the system below the cut cannot be matched to any conceivable classical description of the properties visible to observers.”

So how do scientists observe the invisible? They choose particular properties of the quantum system and set up apparatus to view their effects on the physical processes “above the cut.”

The key is the experimenter’s choice. When working with the quantum system, the observer’s choice has been shown to physically impact what manifests and can be observed above the cut. 

Stapp cited Bohr’s analogy for this interaction between a scientist and his experiment results: “[It's like] a blind man with a cane: when the cane is held loosely, the boundary between the person and the external world is the divide between hand and cane; but when held tightly the cane becomes part of the probing self: the person feels that he himself extends to the tip of the cane.”

The physical and mental are connected in a dynamic way. In terms of the relationship between mind and brain, it seems the observer can hold in place a chosen brain activity that would otherwise be fleeting. This is a choice similar to the choice a scientist makes when deciding which properties of the quantum system to study. 

The quantum explanation of how the mind and brain can be separate or different, yet connected by the laws of physics “is a welcome revelation,” wrote Stapp. “It solves a problem that has plagued both science and philosophy for centuries—the imagined science-mandated need either to equate mind with brain, or to make the brain dynamically independent of the mind.”

Homeless Stars? Well, Galaxy-less Stars Anyway ~ Greg Giles


Lonesome Stars
Time-lapse photograph of the CIBER rocket launch, taken from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia

In Friday’s issue of the journal Science, conclusions from the Cosmic Infrared Background Experiment or CIBER, suggest that as many as half of all stars in our universe may lie outside the home of galaxies. Not visible through Earth-bound telescopes due to their faint glow, these lone stars may be the points that connect galaxies together in a far spanning web of light.   

These 'homeless' stars are believed by astronomers to have been evicted by their galaxies by mergers and collisions.

NASA program scientist Michael Garcia said this dim glow between galaxies is as bright as all the known galaxies combined, and is redefining previous understandings of galactic structure. Instead of being defined by sharpened borders, galaxies may span further outward, thinning like a morning mist over a darkened pond.

Your ‘Mastery Self’ Travels Time to Assist You

Channeler: DL Zeta

When we speak of future selves, we refer to selves that exist in other time/space realities that hold understandings which you have not yet attained. By this definition, your future self is capable of assisting and guiding you in consciousness.

In the future there is a "you" that has obtained mastery consciousness. To the extent that you are in resonance with this "mastery self," you are able to receive its assistance and guidance. You have other future selves that exist at all points along the spectrum between your present level of consciousness and your mastery self. Those nearest your present moment are in closest resonance with you and therefore easier to access.

Your present rate of spiritual development determines the extent to which your future selves are able to travel time to assist you. If you are rapidly growing and expanding, it is likely this growth trajectory will multiply exponentially, paving the way for future selves in the next 2-5 years to serve as guides for your present-moment self.

If you are rapidly expanding your consciousness, your near-future selves will be spiritually adept at traveling back in consciousness to assist you and to serve as a wise and uplifting presence. Aligning in this way opens the door to quantum spiritual growth. It is quantum spiritual growth that brings you into closer resonance with your "mastery self," further igniting the fires of transformation in your life. The more you are a vibrational match for your mastery self, the more this self is able to assist and guide you.

Beings from the Future are Here Now, Part 1

Channeler: DL Zeta

The shift in consciousness leading to the New Time began quite some time ago as a series of smaller shifts. These shifts began taking place in the hearts and minds of many beings over centuries, with the final staging of consciousness taking shape in the last hundred years. Large numbers of "beings from the future" began incarnating to the Earth in the late 1800s. Each decade since that time has seen a greater influx of beings arriving here to seed consciousness and pave the way for the New Earth. The essence of these beings’ role is anchoring greater light on the Earth to help accelerate the transformations taking place.

The Mechanism of Past-Time Incarnations

All timeframes on Earth exist simultaneously in adjacent dimensions. These timeframes exist into infinity. That is to say, every second that has ever existed lives on, encapsulated within its own segment of “time.” Since all timeframes exist simultaneously, a soul whose most recent incarnation ended in 2012 may be reborn in a past-timeframe dimension, such as 1850. Souls have always had the option to incarnate into past time. The difference now is that major energetic shifts happening now will result in greater numbers of souls choosing to incarnate into “past-time dimensions.” Some who have incarnated in the last 50-100 years have had incarnations in the time/space coordinate of the New Earth.

Reasons for Incarnating into “Past Time”

Individuals or soul groups sometimes incarnate into “past-time” periods. A past time period is one you perceive as the past in terms of linear progression. Time doesn’t manifest in a linear fashion, but the conscious mind, for organizing purposes, tends to order it this way. It may be that you are incarnated in 2007 and that lifetime ends in 2075. After a time, you choose to reincarnate into a time period most resonant with your needed learning experiences, which could be 2150, 1950, or 1750. This depends on your resonance and your planned future learning experiences. Sometimes entire soul groups have used this technique of incarnating into a "past" location along the time continuum. Time in this sense becomes a tool for growth and change.

“Past-time” incarnations fulfill several purposes that serve the evolution of the individual, the soul group, and all of humanity. This technique can be a signature of older souls nearing the end of their incarnational cycle, though there are other reasons souls choose to incarnate into past time.

Throughout history, souls have incarnated into timeframes where they could best gain needed experiences. These timeframes synchronistically offered them the best opportunity to share the talents and abilities they had developed. Imagine you’re graduating from a course of study and you discover there are certain lessons or courses missing from your transcript. You would choose to go back and complete these courses.

You would most likely choose the best time and place to obtain this course of study. In much the same way, acquiring certain understandings requires certain circumstances. For instance, if you are completing a lifetime in 2100 and you want to learn to love people who are very different from your own vibration, you would need to gain this understanding in a time period where contrasting energies predominate. If energies are more harmonious in 2100, you may need to incarnate into 1975, for example, to experience this contrast. Synchronistically, when an individual or soul group previously incarnated around 2100 chooses to incarnate into 1975, they’re able to serve as a bridging consciousness in a transition time on Earth. In other words, they would serve to weave the collective consciousness of 1975 into the cosmic fabric of future time.
