In a way, it is simply a new look at Einstein’s theory of Special Relativity, but the combination of Magueijo’s comments and the previous ideas in this book, creates a new perspective.
According to Special Relativity, nothing can go faster than the speed of light and the speed of light is the same for all observers no matter how fast they are moving. If you stop and think about it, this is rather counterintuitive; we are used to catching up with something if we speed up towards it, such as chasing after a friend you have spotted in the street so that you can talk to her.
With light, it is a different story. No matter how fast you move, you never catch up with it and strangely, even if you are traveling at 299,999 km/s yourself, if you were to measure light as you are hurtling along, light would still be 300,000km/s: the same as it would be if you were to trundle along at 2km/hour. Apparently, Einstein originally dreamt about this bizarre behavior of light whilst still a teenager. The contents of his dream went on to become one of the mainstays of modern physics.
Yet how can light behave so differently to objects in our everyday reality? Special relativity actually includes a subtle caveat that provides us with a clue. It says that nothing with mass can travel at the speed of light. As an object approaches such a speed, it also approaches infinite mass. It therefore never actually reaches light speed, no matter how fast it moves. The heavier it gets, the less it can move and so on, until infinity.
However, light does not have mass. Light does not seem to be an object as such, but a type of movement or energy. In the days of Einstein, the particle of light, the photon, was the only known particle to have no mass. Since then, we have discovered that the neutrino is also massless and is known to move at the speed of light. The caveat of mass never breaking the speed limit remains extremely important, but we now know that massless objects may do so.
Not only is the photon massless, it also exists out of space and time. How can something have a speed and be out of space and time? I believe that light is not actually something moving at all. What we measure as the speed of light is actually the limitations of our perception of this dimension of reality.
Light, as Magueijo says, is limitless.17 It is simply expressed in the different vibrations of all the different dimensions. As many researchers across the world are now realizing, the speed of light is related to the frequency of vibration you happen to find yourself at. The higher frequencies in the early universe or in higher dimensions appear to have a higher speed of light. It is really simply an expression of the vibrational limit of perception for each dimension.
Hence, you can never catch up with a photon. You are not actually catching up with a ‘thing’ at all, but a limitation of vibration of consciousness. Within this limitation, consciousness takes on the form that we are familiar with, the world of electrons and other particles with mass. Beyond this limitation, mass does not exist.
Looking back to Einstein, this idea is actually present all along because he speaks of the speed of light relative to the observer. The observer, something that is perceiving, or consciousness, is already written into Special Relativity. We can rewrite the speed of light as our perception limit or Perception Horizon.
Beyond the Perception Horizon
It is now time to move beyond the Perception
Horizon. When we do, we start to find the secrets to creation itself. By now, you may have realized that we have been ignoring most of our universe, that which lies beyond our Perception Horizon and out of our three-dimensional reality. Most of our universe lies in higher dimensions, in vibrations that are too subtle for us to see.
This is not the realm of mass and, because we are used to dealing with solid objects, we have totally missed this point. We try to describe the universe in terms of the familiar three-dimensional realm. Hence, most of the universe remains invisible to us. Except to the mystics: those who have received what is known as enlightenment. They are the ones who can shift their perception into these realms and catch glimpses of this subtle light, which has been described in esoteric traditions throughout the world and all history. They have this ability, because the part of them that is consciousness does not have mass and is able to move beyond the limitations of this world. This ability is within all of us, but some simply have not realized it.
We can now understand why 97 per cent of our universe is a mystery to us. We have named it dark matter and dark energy. In reality, these are the realms of light beyond the Perception Horizon. If we could perceive it, we would know that what we have called dark is not dark at all, it is brilliantly light. And the brightest of all objects is what we previously called a black hole. This is where we go next in our exploration of creation.
Dr Manjir Samanta-Laughton MBBS Dip Bio-energy (MD in USA) is an international speaker and author of several books.
She trained as a medical doctor and GP in London. Whilst at medical school she turned from skeptic into mystic when she had an unexpected spiritual awakening - a kundalini experience aged 18 years. Since then she has been on a quest to link ideas in the cutting edge of science with spirituality. She trained as a bio-energy healer with the Plexus Bio-energy institute, now famous for having assisted Michael Flatley with his recent recovery. She also worked as a holistic doctor for the world renowned Bristol Cancer Help Centre.
In 2002 a series of extraordinary events unfolded which led to Manjir leaving the medical profession and entering onto her true path. In 2006 her first book, Punk Science was published by O-books and it has received worldwide acclaim ever since. In it, she described her new cutting-edge theories of cosmology which place black holes at the centre of a conscious creative universe.
In 2008 she joined the prestigious Hokkaido Science Symposium in Japan with just seven other scientists and philosophers from around the world.
2009 sees the publication of her second book, The Genius Groove which further describes the connections between cutting-edge ideas in science and how they can be applied to your life and help you find your true path, just as Manjir has found hers.
A forthcoming project includes a book, code-named The Real Deal which will bring together science and ancient philosophies a well as Manjir’s series of mystical visions involving Mary Magdalene dating back to 2001, which have never before been revealed to the public.
Manjir is a popular speaker and frequently appears in the UK and abroad including at various universities. She has also been interviewed by many radio and TV stations including the BBC and C4 as well as being a regular guest on Edge Media TV.
She lives with her partner, James in Buxton, Derbyshire.
