Synopsis of the New Darshan

The literal meaning of a new darshan is a new vision, or in this case, a new integrative world view.

Several years ago when I was first developing my website ( I wrote that one of my purposes was to attempt to “to develop a science based rational world view that incorporates the possibility that the Big Bang that gave rise to our Cosmos was a conscious act of creation. And, furthermore that the growth of consciousness resulting from awareness is a discernible purpose of human evolution.” (I am a retired experimental particle/nuclear physicist with a Ph.D. from UC Berkeley and a long standing interest in matters of the Spirit.)

I have published an article in Colombe Magazine (on my website) that summarizes my conclusions about a such a world view: An Integrative Worldview Consistent with Recent Observations of the Cosmic and the Quantum This article and my scientific paper on The Non-local Vacuum: A Framework for New Physics Beyond the Standard Models provide a synopsis of what I have learned in my almost decade long attempt during my retirement to “make sense of things.”

The article on the Integrative Worldviews is too long (6 pages) to reproduce here on the blog so I hope you will use the link to read it. This article includes a non-technical description of non-local reality and a brief summary of the Non-local Vacuum paper. There is also a poem on the Waypoints pages of the website that embodies the spirit of the new darshan called Acts of the Spirit. I hope you will take the time to read it as well.

The key ideas behind this article are the metaphysical implications of the physics presented in the scientific paper and the concept of co-inherence that has been the subject of much of this blog.


Bonus Time

For eleven days I sat in a room with death
Thinking about love, feeling my body
Weaken as the beatings of my
Heart continued to slow.

But the light of love within my heart
Calmed me and brought me peace.
I saw this guiding light shine
Even on death and
Through death.

Before taking death’s hand I wanted
To leave behind words telling of
What I had found at the
Endpoint of these

I wrote that I saw that “The One”, the
Spirit that quickens all life and
Inspires all awareness.
Is Love itself.
God is Love.
Love is

I saw that I, one of the many,
Co-inhere with “The One”
Through Love.
It was surrendering to that
Simple but profound truth
That brought peace to
My failing heart.

The wheel turned. As death left the room
He told me to remember that
I was now on bonus time.
We parted on good

Now a miraculous bionic bonus maker
Beats away beneath my collar bone
Keeping my heart pulsing in pace
With my life’s demands.

I will live as I have lived but with renewed
Resolve to bring awareness and
Gratitude to as many
Of my moments as
I can manage.

I will try to write of what I have seen
With clarity and beauty and let the
Light of love guide my way
In these days of my
Bonus time.
