Introduction — Nov 20, 2016
As the following article indicates, the worldview of scientific materialism has reached the limit of its ability to explain the world. In fact much of what is now being talked about by scientists today goes back to what our ancestors knew centuries ago.
Only modern scientists don’t talk about Gods and spiritual beings as the ancients once did. They don’t mention the elemental beings of air, earth and water such as fairies, nor is there reference to gnomes, water gods and goddesses in the parlance of modern science.
Instead scientists are now talking of “aliens” being behind phenomena that they can’t rationalise, like “dark matter”. That fits in with the prevailing philosophical creed: scientific materialism, which seeks to explain everything in terms of physical matter. Even if it cannot be quantified.
If phenomenon cannot be physical measured then scientists strive to explain it in terms of subatomic physics. However, when subatomic physicists have observed the strange behaviour of subatomic particles it doesn’t seem to have occurred to them that they are looking into the fringes of the spiritual world. That’s why some subatomic particles don’t appear to abide by the laws of scientific materialism. They are governed by the laws of another realm: what Rudolf Steiner referred to nearly a century ago as the ethereal world.
Ethereal isn’t a word that is used much nowadays but it means delicate, airy, insubstantial. Steiner used the term ethereal world before scientists discovered the realm of subatomic particles but he might have been talking about the same thing. Ed.
Aliens could control mysteries like dark matter, says scientist

ALIEN life is behind the mysteries of the universe, according to a radical new theory.
Ancient non-human life forms morphed into the physical world and are the driving force behind mind-boggling quantum physics and phenomena like dark matter, according to a Columbia University astrophysicist.
The expert says our universe is the remains of intelligent alien life which controls all aspects of the physical world — from gravity to the speed of light.
The theory helps to explain the great mysteries of the cosmos and also answers why we are yet to find intelligent life beyond our planet, Professor Caleb Scharf says.
In an article for science journal Nautilus, the radical thinker wrote that alien life could exist in the behaviour of sub atomic particles and the expansion of the universe.
“Perhaps hyper-advanced life isn’t just external. Perhaps it’s already all around”, he said.
“It is embedded in what we perceive to be physics itself.
“In other words, life might not just be in the equations. It might be the equations.”
He points to a theory that suggests alien life forms intelligent enough to reach us will have already turned themselves into living machines.
Humanity too faces this prospect when our creations overtake our own intelligence — a process dubbed “singularity”.
Taking this a step further, Prof Scharf says hyper-advanced aliens may have gone beyond turning themselves into machine creatures and gone as far as becoming a complex physical system.
“If you’re a civilisation that has learned how to encode living systems into different [materials], all you need to do is build a normal-matter-to-dark-matter data-transfer system: a dark matter 3D printer,” Scharf explained.
His theory centres around the idea that we have not seen complex life apart from our own because it already exists around us.
“We don’t recognise advanced life because it forms an integral and unsuspicious part of what we’ve considered to be the natural world”, he wrote.
