We are entering a new age where science and spiritual thought will merge into one as they should, as there is only one truth.
Our current understanding is now validating what the Egyptians already knew. As the Egyptians put in 'Matter is frozen light or music. Both light and sound are simply vibration. To understand this in more detail: http://www.alexpetty.com/
All matter is vibration in a standing wave that is constantly recreated by the constant in flow of aether, the background all pervasive energy that allows the universe to exist. You can think of matter like a waterfall. The in flow of water constantly creates the waterfall, yet if you look at the waterfall from far away it looks static. To understand this in more detail: http://www.alexpetty.com/
Everything vibrates and everything has a frequency. We are currently in a 3D frequency. Every element has a frequency. You can think of molecules as a combination of those frequencies held together with sympathetic harmonics, like playing a chord (molecule) instead of a single note (element).
So now lets review some similar things we have heard with this understanding. We have heard of the "Fall of Man". What does this mean? It simply means in the past the planet and its inhabitants were vibrating at a higher frequency. When men 'Fell' they fell in frequency. Whenever something is lower in frequency is loses the capacity to hold information. This can be explained with the Nyquist Theorem http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyquist%E2%...ng_theorem
So when you are lower in frequency you can't process as much information, you are lower in consciouness.
So What Caused Us to Fall?
This is the 64 million dollor question. Understanding this question holds the key to humanity's past, more also more importantly it's future.
Another emerging property of the universe seems to be that everything is cyclic, including the grand cycles which humankind has lived through. We can look around at ancient megaliths left behind by our ancestors for clues. In these megaliths we find construction techniques that still cannot be reproduced today. Some of these monuments are very old, probably built before man descended to a lower vibration state when he forgot these building techniques and also forgot who he himself actually is. We also look to the most ancient known text in existence, the Vedic teachings, which speak of these cycles.
So far the best evidence suggests that these rises and fall in the consciousness of man is directly caused by the cycle of the solar system's orbit particularly its position relative to the the galactic center. For decades modern science assumed that all interstellar space was the same. But starting in the 1990's we are finding this is not the case as the solar system has entered a more energetic area of space. And as we are now in 2012 it seems the area that we are moving into is becoming ever more energetic. And this is already starting to have profound effects and fundatmental properties of physics. One such effect is on the decay rate of radioactive materials. Once thought as constant, scientists to their alarm are finding the decay rats are changing. This could be triggered by the solar system crossing the galactic plane as it bobs and dips up and down through its orbit like a sine wave over hundreds of thousands of years as it slowly orbits the galactic center. We have seen that magnetic pole flips have occurred many times in the past on earth. Everytime the earth crosses the galactic plane the magnetic poles reverse to adjust.
Another effect that has been noticed is that the Earth's heartbeat, the Schumann Resonance, which was also thought to be constant has just recently increased from 7.8 cycles a second to 12 cycles a second.
What Does This All Mean?
It means that the human race in now on the path of ascending back up to a higher state of consciousness, where it once was. How long this will take is still not known. But the Mayans denoted Dec 21st as a pivitol point for humankind. This could be the time when the changing frequencies, which have already started the last 20 years or so, are finally starting to have a tangible effect on the planet. For the first time we might not be able to deny that something is afoot, something very special. Eventually we will wake up and remember who we really are. We will look back on the last 12,000 years or so and realize what a dark age it really was.
