We might ask: ‘does present-day science and physics provide an important contribution to our understanding of the nature miracles performed by Jesus?’ This blog, ‘Consciousness and Subtle Energies’, is part 2 in a series of three contributions. Part 1 looks at “Bridging Science and Spirit” and part 3 considers ‘Experimental Evidence for Applied Human Intention, Spiritual Mindset and Miracles’.
Such an evaluation of Jesus’ nature miracles, and particularly, if the principles of physics provide enhanced understanding of the integrity within the nature miracle: then we can understand the Psychoenergetic factors (i.e. purported links between the human psyche and mystical forms of energy) that can explain the role of human intention to influence nature. Such understanding will not make these nature miracles any less miraculous. ( Cartoon gallery, copyright Sidney Harris, www.sciencecartoonsplus.com). Indeed, any such finding will show Jesus and his message as even more relevant and truthful by demonstrating Jesus‘ influence of the natural processes and, significantly - the timing of the events.
Consciousness and Subtle Energies - Part 2
Professor William Tiller introduces a new ‘energy’ based consideration of ‘Consciousness-inclusive Science’ as follows - “A long, long time ago in human history, there were two accepted and compatible pathways to the acquisition of knowledge. This applies not only to the historically well-known cultures but also to the not so well-documented indigenous cultures of the world. These two pathways were designated as the human inner path of revelation and the other as the human outer path of logic applied to external observations of Nature.
Humankind has always been concerned with scientific enquiry because we really want to understand the milieu in which we find ourselves. Our mindset is that we also want to engineer and modulate as much of our environment as possible to sustain, feed, enrich and propagate our lives. Following this path, the goal of science has been to gain a reliable description of natural phenomena which eventually allows accurate quantitative prediction, within certain error-bar limits of Nature’s behaviour as a function of an ever-changing environment. As such, past and present science is incapable of providing us with absolute truth. Rather, it seeks to provide us with relative knowledge, but internally self-consistent knowledge, about the relationships between different phenomena and between different things”  This relationship is more fully described in my book – ‘Jesus the Social Entrepreneur: Understanding both His Entrepreneur Mindset and Nature Miracles’.
Consciousness and Related Phenomena:
Consciousness, at its simplest, is sentience or awareness of internal and external existence. Despite millennia of analyses, definitions, explanations and debates by philosophers and scientists, consciousness remains puzzling and controversial, being "at once the most familiar and most mysterious aspect of our lives". Wikipedia. Or as Graziano and Kastner hypothesise, human consciousness is more than an emergent property of information processing in the brain. They say, “when we introspect about our own awareness, or make decisions about the presence or absence of our own awareness of this or that item, we rely on the same circuitry whose expertise is to compute information about other people’s awareness.” Significantly, the term consciousness, as used by Professor William Tiller in his research on human intention, and Professor Murray Gillin in his Book (see above), means “a unique quality of nature that is ultimately convertible to energy although it also conforms to the typical dictionary usage of being awake, aware, etc. Today, there is no adequate and generally accepted definition of the word consciousness. However; if instead of asking what consciousness means, one asks what consciousness does, we almost immediately see that consciousness manipulates information in the form of numbers, alphabet letters, jigsaw puzzle pieces and , most generally, symbols.” 1 Such consciousness-related phenomena involve new categories of energies (subtle energies) beyond those of the four fundamental forces of traditional science – (gravity, electromagnetism, the weak nuclear force and the strong nuclear force).
Indeed, Graziano and Kastner hypothesise that human consciousness is more than an emergent property of information processing in the brain. They say, “when we introspect about our own awareness, or make decisions about the presence or absence of our own awareness of this or that item, we rely on the same circuitry whose expertise is to compute information about other people’s awareness.” This perspective supports the importance of Tiller’s mathematical models to open up a type of ontology that sees consciousness and matter as two complementary aspects of one reality, and our fuller understanding of human intention. (Part 3)
Consciousness and Non-local Intuition:
Certainly, there is little doubt that prior experience—both conscious and unconscious knowledge—plays an important role in informing human decision and action. Such intuition, is defined in The Oxford Dictionary as “The ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning>.” But widely published research into the behaviour and decision-making style of serial entrepreneurs confirms their ability to recognise future action based on unexplained knowing that has nothing to do with conscious knowledge derived from pattern recognition or memory retrieval. Such serial entrepreneurs are not dependent on using dispassionate cognitive processing that underlies reason and logic as the primary component of decision-making. This propensity for sensing unexplained knowledge (often called ‘gut-feel’) is a behavioural characteristic of serial entrepreneurs that is is called ‘Non-local‘ intuition and defined as “a process by which implicit information normally outside the range of cognitive processes is sensed and perceived by the body’s psychophysiological systems as certainty of knowledge or feeling (positive or negative) about the totality of a thing distant or yet to happen.” Such information is received and processed by the brain, heart, and autonomic nervous system (ANS) through a passionate, emotional and spiritual focus on the mission/opportunity under consideration. This ‘make-it-happen’ mindset attunes with the body’s psychophysiological systems, by a process of energetic resonance, to intuitive information from nonlocal sources. A primary example of this is Jesus, a serial social entrepreneur with a passionate and focused mindset to ‘make-it-happen’ in delivering on the opportunity to - ‘‘change society values and behaviours through a new relationship with God.’’ (See Fig. 2)

This concept of nonlocality (and applied here to intuition) originates from quantum physics where, as a concept, it is used to describe the empirical discovery of the fundamental interconnectedness of everything in the universe at the quantum level—the level of sub-atomic particles. Non-local intuition can then be examined as that tacit information available in the quantum field (that is “outside” the body) and its interaction with the field of quantum coherent energy particles of the human body.  Importantly, this understanding that consciousness is both ‘non-local’ and exhibits quantum energy behaviour goes a long way in explaining the psychophysiological and parapsychological phenomena as considered under ‘subtle’ energies in part 3.
Subtle Energies and Consciousness:
The pioneering work of Professor William Tiller to mathematically model this multi-dimensional reality has been called by Gerber “the Tiller-Einstein Model of Positive-Negative Spacetime—the next physics paradigm, and capable of incorporating the effect of human intention on physical matter through behaviour of etheric matter and emotional matter.” At the emotional level, certain thoughts, either conscious or unconscious, may exist as distinct energy fields or thought forms, with unique shapes, colours, and characteristics. Some thoughts, especially those that are charged with emotional intensity, can have a separate identity apart from their creator. Certain thoughts may actually be charged with subtle energetic substance and exist (unconsciously) as thought-forms in the energetic fields of their creators. (These thought-forms can frequently be seen by clairvoyant individuals and serial entrepreneurs who are very sensitive to higher energetic phenomena). The fact that human consciousness can influence the energy fields of subtle energetic anatomy has important implications for both medicine and psychology—including conditioning and control (trigger) and understanding miracles. Chalmers argues that no physical theory alone can explain why cognitive brain functions such as perception, memory and decision-making are accompanied by conscious sensations. 
Based on increasing evidence for subtle energies and what have been loosely described as Para-normal capabilities which include healing hands, remote viewing, precognition, telepathy, homeopathy, etc. Tillershows a strong correlation with magnetic energies as distinct from electric energies. Subtle energies are all those beyond the ones generated by the four fundamental forces of gravity, electromagnetism (EM), the weak nuclear force and the strong nuclear force. They are thought to reside in the space between the fundamental particles comprising atoms and molecules and thus in the physical vacuum. They are not weak energies—they are merely elusive to our present-day measurement systems. Based on the theory of Barrett , Tiller concludes that when one considers phenomena where magnetic charge is important, as in the examples above, one must focus on another or higher level of reality than that of the coarse, physical level of reality.  This is referred to as the ‘etheric’ level of energy. According to both ancient and modern sciences, the Subtle Energy of the Etheric world do not interact with physical matter directly. Also using quantum theory and explanations for the photons that can be seen and not seen, Deutsch ‘rules out the possibility that the universe we physically see around us constitutes the ‘whole of reality.’  To help understand this condition and drawing freely from his books, , Tiller extends the work of Nobel prize winner deBroglie on wave/particle duality in which every particle in matter has a pilot-wave envelope enclosing it and moving at the velocity of the particle.  The faster moving information waves enter and leave this envelope as it moves along with the particle. Based on Quantum Mechanics and Einstein’s relativity theory,
Particle Velocity Vp x Information Wave Velocity Vw = c 2
Since Vp is always less than c (speed of light), then Vw must always be greater than c.
Tiller shows that the deBroglie type particle coordinate is best described in D (direct)- space coordinates (x, y, z, t) while the information wave coordinate is an R (reciprocal)-space system (x-1 , y -1 , z -1 , t-1). Following this approach, any formal description of substance or ‘material’ behaviour would involve at least eight coordinates. These two space systems clearly interact in the particle/wave picture, but relativity theory precludes the two-space systems from directly interacting with each other. Tiller invents the presence of an additional coupling substance that is not constrained by relativity theory.
The moieties of this coupling substance are thought to be from the domain of emotion and have been labelled ‘deltrons.’ This means that any formal description of substance behaviour in nature, without any human intervention, involves at least nine coordinates (x, y, z, t), Cδ0, (x-1 , y -1 , z -1, t-1) where Cδ0 is the cosmic background-activated deltron concentration. When human intervention, via human consciousness in the form of the application of human intentionality acts on nature, one must add at least ‘one’ more coordinate, (I*) to any meaningful description of nature. Thus, formal descriptions of nature, which includes human intention, involves at least ten coordinates (x, y, z, t), Cδ0, (x-1 , y -1 , z -1, t-1), I*. I* represents the intensity of human intention and it influences the magnitude of Cδ . A diagrammatic representation of the functionality is given in Fig. 7.3.

So how does the human being sense/receive or radiate information/energy from exposure to subtle energies?
As noted modern in quantum science, as well as the ancient teachings of Chinese medicine, the universe is based on the reality that everything is energy whether identified with D-space or R-space. According to our understanding of matter, physics and chemistry, the universal energy field comprises all matter and psychological processes — thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and attitudes — we are composed of energy. When applied to the human body, every atom, molecule, cell, tissue and body system is composed of energy that when superimposed on each other create what is known as the human energy field.
Indeed, as human beings, created in the ‘Image of God’, our elements of mind-body-spirit are indivisibly interconnected with the universal energy source that both regulates and makes possible us as living beings. This aspect is discussed further in Gillin’s book. Also, using the example of the Australian Jindalee project (Over the Horizon Radar System), and Tiller’s use of modified Maxwell equations to allow for monopoles to operate in R-space, Gillin describes the reality and significance of human intentional energy being both transmitted and received from energy composed exteroceptors positioned over our bodies. Such distributed exteroceptors over the human body allow for triangulation in locating the focus of human intention, and together with the meridian network the human being can incorporate emotion and spirit with the heart and brain in decision-making processes.
This quantum and physics-based explanation underpins both the reality and importance of the ‘spirit’ characteristic in exercising an entrepreneur mindset, non-local intuition and in some instances observable physical change. Such understanding can provide for a science and energy transfer model to explain the ‘Nature’ miracles of Jesus.
