EVIDENCE FOR COSMIC INFLATION
In 1979, Alan Guth (now at MIT), proposed the concept of cosmic inflation. He believed that the initial energy of the universe would cause a runaway expansion. Until recently it has been theoretical although mathematically proven that the universe is inflating.
A collaborative team after three years has corroborated that a twist in light or ripples in space-time are the first images of gravitational waves from the Big Bang. This would suggest that cosmic inflation is correct. Researchers also significantly agree that this confirms a profound relationship between quantum mechanics and general relativity which has implications for study at the Planck scale, previously thought to be impossible.
On 17thMarch 2014, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics announced that the BICEP2 facility at the South Pole discovered this compelling evidence for quantized gravity and cosmic inflation. They used microwave telescopes, which enabled sensitive measurements of the cosmic microwave background (CMB),since the air is most like space, thin and dry, at the pole. Working with the light of the CMB, it was found to be polarized and thus scattered by atomic particles. Gravitational waves squeeze space and create distinctive patterns and thus when looking for this signature in the cosmic wave background, a twist in the light was found. This twist is considered to be a ripple in space-time and a sign that the expansion took place faster than the speed of light.
"This work offers new insights into some of our most basic questions: Why do we exist? How did the universe begin? These results are not only a smoking gun for inflation, they also tell us when inflation took place and how powerful the process was," asserts Harvard theorist, Avi Loeb
Inflation is important because it solves two problems : 1) why is the universe fairly homogenous, that is almost in perfect thermal equilibrium and 2) why is it more flat than curved. Inflation tells that that this is because all the regions, in the earliest period of time, were together and associated with the cosmological constant, and the only significant inhomogeneities are the tiny quantum fluctuations in the inflaton (the particle behind inflation).
The fact that all particles had some relation to each other further supports the theories of non-locality of quantum physics. The Book of Knowledge: Keys of Enoch® speaks of the cosmological constant as the connection between particles and a key source to the interconnectedness behind creation. It plays down the “big bang” as one chaotic explosion, favoring a more orderly unfoldment.
Guth does go on to describe how inflation is associated with the early gravitational pressures of the universe. He states: “Inflationary theory itself is a twist on the conventional Big Bang theory. The shortcoming that inflation is intended to overcome is the basic fact that, although the Big Bang theory is called the Big Bang it is in fact not really a theory of a bang at all; it never was. The conventional Big Bang theory, without inflation, was really only a theory of the aftermath of the Bang…. The basic idea behind inflation is that a repulsive form of gravity caused the universe to expand.
Now regarding the flatness of the universe, Guth further explains why the geometry of the universe is so close to Euclidean. According to Guth : “In the context of relativity, Euclidean geometry is not the norm; it's an oddity. With general relativity, curved space is the generic case. …A large mass density would cause space to curve into a closed universe in the shape of a ball; if the mass density dominated, the universe would be a closed space with a finite volume and no edge. If a spaceship traveled in what it thought was a straight line for a long enough distance, it would end up back where it started from. In the alternative case, if the expansion dominated [i.e., inflation], the universe would be geometrically open. Geometrically open spaces have the opposite geometric properties from closed spaces. They're infinite. In a closed space two lines which are parallel will start to converge; in an open space two lines which are parallel will start to diverge.”
This is exactly what we are seeing today and what is confirmed not only by inflation but also spoken of in the first verses of the first key of The Book of Knowledge: Keys of Enoch® that speaks of our being part of an “open-ended universe”. The second verse continues: “Being part of an open-ended universe, we are part of an open-ended mind; being part of an open-ended mind, we are part of an open-ended universal image”.
Gathering Clues to the Origin of life!
A major controversy amongst many scientists since the 1960s has finally been settled: there now appears to be conclusive evidence that not only does outer space house certain amino acids the basic building blocks of life, but meteorites falling to Earth from space have been shown to contain “nucleobases” the building blocks of DNA and RNA. A team from NASA Goddard's Astrobiology Analytical Laboratory which includes Michael Callahan, Drs. Jennifer C. Stern, Daniel P. Glavin, and Jason P. Dworkin were amongst those who researched and confirmed the findings. The Pennsylvania State University, the Carnegie Institution of Washington, DC also were involved in the investigation.
What the NASA scientists found to be of most interest is the presence of the purines of adenine and guanine, which are common on Earth and are one of the bases for our DNA. The research mainly concluded that these elements found in the meteorites were not contaminations from earth. It seems that a particular class of meteorites called CM2 meteorites are the ones that show these types of elements.
In addition, they also found four other elements hypoxanthine, xanthine, 2,6-diaminopurine, and 6,8-diaminopurine; the latter two almost never are used in biology. These latter four elements are also unique to the area where the meteorites were found or are found only in more minute amounts, and therefore the conclusion was made that these elements within the meteorite are not contaminants from Earth, and the Earth may be part of an event called panspermia.
Since the turn of the century it has been an accepted fact that amino acids, the basic fundamental elements within our body, also exist in space. This knowledge came not just from meteorites like the Murchison Meteorite that fell in 1969 in Australia, but also from NASA’s 2004 Stardust mission when the spacecraft surfed the wake of the Wild 2 comet’s tail collecting samples. The sample that was later dropped back on earth showed glycine, a common amino acid, but in the comet it was a little different from what existed on earth.
Callahan is lead author of the paper on the discovery of the six elements confirmed in meteorites that have now been examined. His results will be appearing in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. The claim is that this discovery adds to a growing body of evidence that the chemistry inside meteorites, asteroids and comets is capable of making building blocks that have many of the essential biological molecules for life as we know it.
The Keys of Enoch® (Key 202), already in 1973, told us that the nucleotide bases are part of the greater cosmic creation based on the “seed forms” which are really wave functions of life that code for our creation. We are just now beginning to understand that our image is also alive amongst the stars!

This May be the Most Important Scientific Discovery
so Far in the 21st Century
An alien bacterial life form may have just been found in Meteorite Cl1!
We know that we not alone in the universe, but we are all waiting for the hard evidence that will prove it to everyone else. The first major “disclosure” may be this week’s announcement by a NASA scientist that evidence of primitive ‘alien life forms’ have been found in a recently dissected meteorite.
Over 5,000 scientists will have a look at this new scientific evidence that is pointing to the existence of a giant bacterium (Titanospirillum) that once lived inside the rock that is now part of a rare class of meteorites, called the Cl carbonaceous chondrites.
This astounding observation of new ‘alien life’ in our midst comes from a well-credentialed NASA astrobiologist, Dr. Richard B. Hoover (of the Marshall Space Flight Center), who published his findings in the March 2011 edition of the Journal of Cosmology. Dr. Hoover has studied scores of meteorites in Alaska, Siberia, and, most importantly, in Antarctica, where the Alan Hills meteorite rock was found in 1984 (ALH 84001). ALH84001 electrified scientists throughout the world in 1996 because of the strong possibility of a fossil record of life living inside the rock that seemed to have come here from Mars.
The electrifying news of alien life, once again, in this new meteorite material may truly be the eye opening evidence that the world scientific community has been waiting for. Although the ALH84001 meteorite was not accepted by most scientists, this new fossil evidence presented by Dr. Hoover is clearer and larger in size, and so more difficult to debunk.
This new evidence on ‘other life’ in the high frontier of neighboring space can be matched with findings of abundant water on the moon and Mars, from the Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Odyssey, and other missions. We may have just approached a milestone in the scientific community, and Dr. Hoover may have provided us with a true synoptic snapshot of life developing on the inner planets of our solar system. Moving from extra-solar planets to extra-solar bacteria is a big step but, hopefully, we are entering the next chapter through this fossilized evidence of primitive life that we have spoken of many times since the 1980s on TV in South Africa (SABC) and Mexico (Televisa) and numerous radio programs heard throughout the world. It has taken a long time for many on Earth to accept the fact that other life exists in the universe – however, many of us are in anticipation of validating what we already know, beginning with the significance of fossil evidence in this and the Alan Hills meteorite.

An exciting discovery in California of 12,000 fishing tools:
There may be three times as many stars in the known universe as the number previously calculated, according to new research done at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Astronomers have until now used as a yardstick the number of brown dwarfs in our own Milky Way Galaxy to calculate the number of stars in all the other galaxies, but that yardstick may not be reliable.
Brown dwarfs are mass-heavy bodies too large to be a planet, yet too small to sustain the stable nuclear fusion of a real star; they are larger but in some ways comparable to Jupiter*—they simply have –never “ignited”, so to speak, and thus do not emit light like real stars. For this reason, they are difficult to spot, and their presence must be deduced by the effect of their gravitational “lensing”, or bending of the passing starlight coming from the stars behind them (in the same way that science is deducing the presence of Earth-like planets).
Astronomers have established with reasonable certainty that the ratio of brown dwarfs to real stars in our Milky Way Galaxy is roughly 100 invisible dwarfs to one actual star, and until now, it was believed that that ratio applied to all galaxies. However, the Milky Way is a spiral-shaped galaxy, and the new research has shown that in the eight elliptical galaxies there are many more brown dwarfs per full star, on the order of 1,000-2,000 to one; considering that the known universe is composed of one third elliptical galaxies, this newly discovered ratio, extrapolated outward, gives us the new presumptive estimate of “at least” three times as many stars universe-wide as previously thought.
This new template, if true, will also mean that the galaxies have a much greater mass, and that they developed earlier and faster than the standard Big Bang model can account for. If the standard model cannot account for the greater mass, what can explain it? We are told in The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch® by J.J. Hurtak, PhD., that “ “our universe began on a spiral” rather than in a steady state or “Big Bang” position.” (See Key 109).
As the mysteries of creation seem to deepen with every discovery, we move forward in the expectation that we will ultimately attain “mastery over mystery”, and that the sciences of the Earth will be brought into phase with the unimaginably vast and poetic beauty of creation.
*Note: Although Jupiter is indeed a huge planet with a great mass, it is not considered to be a brown dwarf. However, some astrophysicists have for decades believed that it possesses the potential for future “stardom”—that is, it is not a static body but a very energetic one, host to many dynamic processes, and is continually absorbing more mass from the incoming comets and other space debris which it attracts with its strong gravitational pull (as in the spectacular crash of Comet Levy-Shoemaker); it has been speculated by Arthur C. Clarke, among others, that Jupiter could actually at some point accumulate enough mass to see the initiation of a reactor state and become a real star.

The Holographic Universe
A new machine called “Hogan’s Holometer” presently being built at Fermilab will measure more precisely than any hitherto constructed the odd noise signals detected in previous searches for the gravitational waves (and their concomitant space-time ripples) that are theoretically emitted in the violent collisions between black holes and supernovas.The interesting thing about the noise emissions which precipitated the building of the Holometer is that according to Dr. Hogan, physicist directing its construction, the anomalous signals may indicate “microscopic convulsions of space-time”—i.e., at the quantum or micro-level. This possible quantum effect is not yet empirically proven, and remains theoretical until the new machine provides more data. However, because scientists were previously looking for a larger (macro) effect in the matter-energy continuum of a disturbance from a far-away cataclysmic stellar collapse, to have preliminary data point to its effect upon the sub-atomic particles must beg the question: how does the information (the ‘news’, as it were) of a distant stellar event show up in the subatomic particles if it is not ‘relayed’ through matter in space in a linear fashion? It could only do so if what happened at a distance (the disturbance) took place simultaneously within the tiny particles, meaning that the universe is holographic in nature.
This non-local simultaneity, which is essentially a field encompassing all that is, wherein the larger architecture of the universe(s) is replicated continually in all structures of every size, can also be referred to as “the macro within the micro”),and is in complete accord with theEnochian cosmology elucidated in The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch®, as well as the extended body of teachings published and taught by The Academy for Future Science. However, the Enochian cosmology shows that this field is not merely an accidental by-product of the physical universe, but is, rather, a consciousness field that we have the innate ability to experience as well as to comprehend. The Keys tell us, essentially, that consciousness precedes matter, and for that reason Dr. Hurtak has said that “the mind is not localized within the body; rather, the body is localized within the mind”, that that mind is, in turn, localized within an even greater Mind not subject to time and space, and further, germane to the concept of a holographic universe where information can be issued to all points out of a zero point origin, “the membrane of mind is instant media for the cosmic circuit”.

Note: For a beautifully written, non-technical portrait of how the “macro within the micro” works within us, we recommend Madeleine L’Engle’s novel A Wind in the Door. Though classified as science-fiction for young adults, it is suitable for all ages as a fine introduction to the concept of the holographic universe.
The Universe Has Sound!
Perseus, the brightest cluster of galaxies in the X-ray region, located some 250 million miles away has at its
center a black hole. The Chandra X-ray Observatory has discovered that surrounding the black hole is a ripple effect of waves of hot cluster gas. According to NASA, these ripples can create sound
waves as they travel hundreds of thousands of light years away from the cluster's central black hole.
In musical terms, the pitch of the sound generated by the Perseus black hole translates into the note of B flat or A sharp. But it is not
something we can hear. Not only is it far away but the sound frequency it makes is a note 57 octaves lower than middle-C. This is a frequency that is over a million, billion times
deeper than the limits of human hearing, and the deepest note ever detected from an object in the universe.
