Scientists reading this book and wanting to know why energy workers and intuitive practitioners inaccurately use terms such as light, vibration, and aura, will be surprised to learn that there is scientific support for what the intuitive tries to explain by using a spiritual language. It has been confirmed by experiments that show the subtle energies of the aura surrounding all living things hold the key to breakthrough understandings in biology and chemistry.
If you are a believer in psychic phenomena, you may be pleased to find that there are scientific terms, theories, and ideas that while they do not support such things as life after death, spiritual dimensions, or the ability to transfer energy, they make it impossible to disprove them.
Some of the greatest breakthroughs in science have come from controversy where one party decides to disprove the other only to find out that the theory they shunned was correct. It could be that their language and terminology was clouded and one term meant something entirely different to the other. Perhaps one called it light and the other called it frequency, but they were both speaking about the same thing.
One party not being able to explain to the other has been a problem between the scientific and new age communities for years. Those on the spiritual side have a hard time understanding why everything has to be proven. Where's the faith in that? they ask. And yet scientists can't prove some of the things they accept as common truth; things that are now being proven incorrect as new pieces to the mystery of the universe begin to unravel through the exploration of quantum physics, atom smashing, the new large Hadron Collider at CERN, simultaneous dimensions, and string theory.
History and the church have influenced societal beliefs and scientific research. If science attempts to bring forth information that rocks the foundation of religion, it will be fought with tenacity. Just look at how the religious, right wing minority has prevented stem cell research in America. Perhaps in our present age--the sage age--we are better prepared to examine ideas and theories without fear of punishment or rejection. This is the only way to learn the truth about anything--do the research, form a theory, and see if it holds up against the research others are doing.
Psychics or physics? Which is correct? Both and neither--depending upon which side you are on and what terms you use to describe your experience. The author doesn't lean toward one side or the other. Being both a shamanka (female shaman) and an electronics expert, her expansive new work combines knowledge from the physical sciences and the intuitive arts to present an unbiased perspective that harmonizes these diverse disciplines into one body of knowledge. This book is sure to open the dialog and get both communities talking--hopefully to instead of about one another.
For me, new books have a way of practically jumping off the shelf and into my hand. When I least expect it, I find some new twist that triggers a whole new train of thought.
The Sage Age is just such a book.
It's been years since I actually studied wave and particle theory, and a lot has happened in the field of science since then. A whole lot. So even though I studied the subject, I needed a refresher to remind me what certain terms mean and how things actually work in the world of physics. I'll give you an example of something new I learned from The Sage Age.
I had learned that lightning rises from the ground to the clouds. I always thought this was counter-intuitive, but that was what I was taught. I think I even saw a movie clip that proved it. I had also read works by Rolling Thunder, a Cherokee medicine man. Presumably he was given this name because there was rolling thunder around the time he was born. Now, where I grew up, rolling thunder was not as common as the crashing sounds resulting from direct lightning strikes.
Then I moved to Michigan. Rolling thunder is a regular feature of storms there, and I gained new appreciation for the phenomenon. However, rolling thunder made me question the validity of what I had been taught about lightning. Rolling thunder results from electrical charges existing in the clouds and never striking the ground. Hmmm...
In The Sage Age, MaAnna mentions that there are at least four kinds of lightning. Aha! Now what I was taught, what I intuit about lightning, and what I observe begins to make more sense! Lightning actually acts in a variety of ways. MaAnna brought disparate scientific facts and personal beliefs together for me into a neat little piece of wisdom. Beyond the recognition of various forms of lightning, I gained new appreciation for the many different ways I access intuitive wisdom--through meditation, dreams, waking visions, and other psychic means.
Each reader will find similar personal "Aha" moments in The Sage Age. You may understand lightning in all its glory, and then gain new insight into how waves work, or where the torus donut shape occurs in nature. Or if you are immersed in the sciences, you may gain new appreciation for intuition and how it works in your own life. It could even help to explain why that brand new book jumped off the shelf into your hands!
Why is this happening to me....AGAIN?!
