For those unfamiliar with the New Physics, examining the pages on the Golden Mean site or the work of other New Physics Scientists and researchers may lead to an impression that one is perusing the bizarre or even the outlandish. I’ve seen people react with incredulity to those pages on Golden Mean; reacting to them as if they are a “bizarre” mish-mash of material whisking you on from one world to another with barely a moment to reflect. But the reaction is unjustified.
“Moreover, most authors who have discussed Leonardo’s scientific work have looked at it through Newtonian lenses, and I believe this has often prevented them from understanding its essential nature. […] Hence, in the centuries since his death, scholars studying his celebrated Notebooks have tended to see them as disorganized and chaotic. In Leonardo’s mind, however, his science was not disorganized at all. It gave him a coherent, unifying picture of natural phenomena — but a picture that is radically different from that of Galileo, Descartes, and Newton.” ( Source )
I’ve been bought up on Fritjof Capra and examinations of Quantum Physics and Reincarnation and a thousand other subjects that at first might seem incompatible with Science. But there has been a long held cultural and Scientific investigation of these subjects that has crossed over into art and music. The 60’s are of course the most well known eruption of this phenomena. But it did not stop there. The rise of Rave culture in the late 80’s was another intense and liberating shift of consciousness that elevated millions into a life barely acknowledged by the crumbling establishment.

There has been an honourable tradition of commentating on the New Physics. Capra’s book Turning Point can now be seen as heralding the end of the age of Reductionism and bringing in what some have only dared to whisper for the last 30 years.
“The concepts of nonlocality and statistical causality imply quite clearly that the structure of matter is not mechanical. Hence the term ‘quantum mechanics’ is very much a misnomer, as David Bohm has pointed out. In his 1951 textbook on quantum theory Bohm offered some interesting speculations on the analogies between quantum processes and thought processes, thus carrying further the celebrated statement made by James Jeans two decades earlier: ‘Today there is a wide measure of agreement . . . that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine.'” ( Source )
Now these “New Physicists” are working together to apply the discoveries. The point of no return has been reached. It’s early days but we can now say with certainty that we have entered a new age. It will eventually mean much of what has been causing ecological damage will fall away. This has not been a trivial achievement. This has only come about by surviving the 60’s to present day upheaval. Peoples lives have been changed as the Western world view shifts and as old systems and the old physics resists (actually some of the world has already been living the New Physics for millennia). I predict that this period will come to be known as The Great Upheaval as people’s stories come to light.
In the coming months I will attempt to reintroduce the context that these new discoveries and applications are happening in. In the chaos of the upheaval this context appears to have been at least partially lost making the wonderful new direction appear confusing and even alien to some people. This would be a shame because the extraordinary has happened and it would almost be criminal to miss the development of the new world.
