I was recently on a podcast with Marcus Leader and let me tell you, the man is a virtual library of information on both the spiritual and scientific aspects of the paranormal. He is a Toltec Shaman. Having studied under Carlos Castaneda while at UCLA, he combines aspects of the Shamanic world with his scientific study, especially in the area of equipment, of which he lets such groups as Haunted South Paranormal Research and TV shows such as Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures test in the field.
It was during our conversation, which dealt with such varied subjects as scalar theory, vibration rates of matter, and some of the basic principles of Toltec Shamanic beliefs, that a thought occurred to me. Have these various spiritual groups had it right all along? Was science just now coming to some of the same conclusions, beliefs that such groups as the Toltec Shamans or Tibetan Monks have held since the early beginnings of their foundation?
I almost brought that point up, the fact that science seems to be only now catching up. Maybe I should have. I do rely heavily on my instincts, almost a sixth sense, though I don’t believe I am too psychic. I do have those moments when I think I might be, dreams, feelings about people, and the like. But back to the point I was trying to make, my gut said say something, but I knew we were short on time, so I didn’t. Oh well, another observation for another time, as we hope to have Mr. Leader back for another podcast at some point in the future.
I have always felt that the spiritual ran along a similar path as science; I just think that the spiritual knowledge we receive is enlightenment, whereas science puts the observation into physical terms. Where somebody of a spiritual nature might see dark matter as the astral aether, the scientific view is to see it as the scalar field. It’s almost as if science took the long way around, while the spiritual took the straight and narrow path. Yet somehow the spiritual groups got it right first.
Maybe it’s something we’ve known all along, ingrained into our psyche, or knowledge from a past civilization advanced enough to understand the principals — a sort of spiritual memory. Seeing as how I believe in reincarnation, all this is made possible by that fact alone. In other words, maybe the Shamans of today were the scientists of centuries past in other advanced civilizations lost to us through the march of time.
Sound crazy? Then again, it is no more crazy than two related particles, which upon being separated, exhibit what is happening to each other, evidenced through their spin. It’s no crazier than the notion that our universe, one of many, sits upon a slowly expanding bubble, with time being a result of that expansion . . . ideas that would have been laughed at in the past but are now looked at seriously by the scientific community.
This all brings me to my point. Scalar Theory is relatively new, at least to Western science. It was looked into extensively by Germany during World War II, and yielded some very peculiar results. Referred to as pseudoscience by some, it does offer some wild possibilities. Even now I have in my possession a device that is purported to detect the scalar field — a microphone to make it easier to pick up the voices of the deceased. I plan on testing this device in the future, and I will let you know the results. Marcus Leader has a similar device called a Beryllium Microphone, the same Beryllium Microphone used on Ghost Adventures upon occasion.
Mr. Leader, being a Toltec Shaman, has listed his beliefs about crystals as what led to him trying out different types of crystals for the Beryllium Microphone. It was using his training as a Toltec Shaman to see auras that led him to discover that beryllium crystals were the best for what he was trying to achieve — communication across the veil. He has made further devices containing these crystals, such as his Darklight.
My conclusion is this, if Marcus Leader, a Toltec Shaman, used his knowledge as a Shaman to further bolster his ability to create these devices, devices which seem to produce results; then his spiritual knowledge helped him surpass his scientific knowledge, or at the very least augment it.
Like I said, science is just now starting to look at scalar theory. They are finally catching up to what the Toltec Shamans, and other groups, have known all along. So, it seems that both sides have been on the same path all along, it just took one longer to get there. Don’t get me wrong; the journey is only beginning. I am just glad that both groups seem to finally be on the same page.
