"Ideas Whose Time Has Come "
Sunday, June 10, 2012 1 - 5 p.m. at theTechShop - San Francisco
Nicola Tesla was a man who produced ideas whose time had come, like AC electricity via power lines, and ideas whose time had not come, like the distribution of power wirelessly, for which J. P. Morgan cut off his funding and suppressed this technology. And we know that, after his death, Tesla’s records were all seized and ‘disappeared,’ such that their time has not yet been allowed to come.
My talk will discuss the work of two people, whose ideas were presented to the world at a time when the world was not ready for them. The first is Arthur M. Young, the inventor or the Bell Helicopter. Young developed a Theory of Evolutionary Process, a theory that looked at the process of our universe, and not just the structure of the universe, which is studied by science. He released his work in two books, “The Reflexive Universe” and “The Geometry of Meaning,” in 1976, at a time when the ideas of holography, fractal mathematics, computer science, and quantum physics were much less known than they are today. His system included purpose and value, as well as theory and scientific facts, and outlined an evolutionary process that accounted for not only randomness, but also purposefulness in our evolution. The theory also reconciled the Free Will vs. Determinism problem--showing that both are essential to the functioning of the Whole. While his Theory of Process was never disproven, it was essentially ignored. Yet Arthur considered his theory to be much more important than his work on the helicopter. The first part of my talk will be an introduction and outline of the basics of this Theory of Evolutionary Process.
The next part of my talk will address the work of Frank Barr, M.D. Dr. Barr had been searching for a unifying Theory of Everything (TOE), and when he began to investigate Arthur Young’s Theory of Process, he thought it was ‘too good to be true.’ Having previously investigated other philosophical systems, including Gurdjieff and Ken Wilber, and finding them incomplete, Dr. Barr tried to disprove Arthur Young’s theory. However, in trying to test and disprove this theory, he instead was led to make a discovery of a ‘missing molecule’ (actually a nanoparticle) that seemed to be a ‘silicon chip’ in cellular organization, and mediated between input from the external cellular environment via the cell membrane, and the ability to then influence the activation of the appropriate DNA genes, to manufacture the necessary proteins for cellular life and for cellular growth. This molecule was neuromelanin, an intracellular pigment particle (a nano-particle), auto-polymerized by the body, and totally different from the tyrosinase-derived skin pigment melanin molecule. He released his findings in an exclusive edition of the Journal of Medical Hypotheses, Vol. 11 No 1, in May 1983--the entire issue was devoted to his paper. However, at that time, there was a lack of a recognized scientific paradigm for scientific understanding of this discovery. To understand this new view of cellular biology, it required an understanding of the importance of quantum physics, and especially quantum entanglement and quantum fields, as well as the implications of holography, chaos theory, computer technology, and fractal mathematics, which were not yet common scientific knowledge. So therefore, science was also able to ignore this paper, and in that time before the internet, it sank into the canon of scientific and medical literature, and was essentially ‘disappeared.’ Yet, the hypothesis presented by Dr. Barr has never been disproven, but likewise it has never been properly recognized and tested.
In my opinion, the scientific (especially quantum mechanics) and the philosophical and metaphysical worlds have now progressed enough, that I think they can appreciate another look at Young’s work and at Barr’s application of this work. Especially with the addition of the internet, in which knowledge can be instantly shared, via search engines, and no longer can be buried in old journals, available only to selected specialists and sub-specialists, I feel the time is right to take a new look at these ideas, whose times, I think, have now come, and how these ‘new’ understandings of how the Universe, and our living cells, work, have the ability to effect the next step in our understanding of our biological evolution.
Michael Buchele, M.D., majored in microbiology and minored in chemistry and physics in college, became an M.D. at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, became Boarded in Internal Medicine, and later Boarded in Emergency Medicine, the latter of which he worked until 2009, and now works as a Hospitalist in Internal Medicine. He has an interest in Alternative and Complementary Medicine, and is a member of the Board of Directors of the HMF (Health Medicine Forum) in Walnut Creek. He has an interest in parapsychology, is a member of ISSSEEM (International Society for the Study of Subtle Energy and Energy Medicine) and IONS (Institute of Noetic Sciences), and he is on the Board of Directors of ISC (The Institute for the Study of Consciousness) and on the Board of Directors of OPUS (Organization for Paranormal Understanding and Support). However, he tries to balance these “X-Files” topics between his Fox Mulder “Believer” side, with his Dana Scully “Skeptic” side, by also being a member of the Bay Area Skeptics and the Society of American Magicians (not to be a performer, but to learn how the illusions are performed). He worked with Arthur Young at the Institute for the Study of Consciousness in Berkeley until Young’s death in 1995. Arthur Young was the inventor of the Bell Helicopter, and the author of “The Reflexive Universe” and “The Geometry of Meaning,” which outlined his Theory of (Evolutionary) Process. He is also a friend of Frank Barr, M.D., and worked with him during the writing of his neuromelanin paper.
