Knowledge is Power

Knowledge is What the World is Searching for..

In the spring of 1979 a 26 year old student at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom walked into the university doctor's office with complaints of a cold.
The doctor on staff noticed that the student, who held a first-class honours degree in mathematics, was rather normal except he had a slightly larger than average head. Curious, the doctor sent the student to James Lorber who was part of a world-leading spinal surgery team at Sheffield Children's Hospital.
What Dr. Lorber found was almost unbelievable!
The student, with a reported IQ of 126 had no signs of any mental deficiency. Yet, when Dr. Lorber X-rayed the student's head he discovered he had almost no brain tissue to speak of. His head was filled with fluid. What little brain matter he had was crushed against his spinal cord, a measly few millimeters thick rather than the typical CENTI-meters.
This condition is called hydrocephalus. It results when cerebral fluid expands and fills the brain causing the cortex to be squashed against the inside of the skull.
There have been many other reported cases where normal functioning people have been found to have virtually no brain matter.
In this particular case Lorber calculated the man's entire brain weighed about 100 grams compared to the average adult brain weighing 1500 grams. 100 grams is little more than the average weight of a dog's brain and this from an honours student in mathematics!

Let's pause and think about this for a moment. How many dogs do you know who have an honours degree in mathematics? Can't think of any? Neither can I. How was the student capable of functioning on the level that he was?
Lorber asked himself a similar question and it begged him to wonder whether the brain was even necessary at all. In 1980 the journal Science headlined with the discovery and the rest is history.

Many scientists have been quietly but steadily growing in suggesting the brain is more of a receiver than the total warehouse storing our consciousness. This leads to another unusual question. If the brain is a receiver what is sending the signals?
The answer is one we have been hearing from mystics for thousands of years.
You are not flesh. You are an energy being using a physical body to interpret and explore this reality.
By reflecting on that knowledge you have been given power because now you can work to affect your energy body. If you are not aware of it how can you help it?
Like your physical body, your energy body needs food. Albert Einstein said that energy can never be destroyed; only transformed. If you learn to absorb energy you will begin to awaken and strengthen your energy mind.
Without the proper knowledge you will never be able to make the transformations you want to make and awaken to a deeply profound and rewarding spiritual life.
