Lamarckism (“transmutation” theory)
Jean-Baptiste Lamarck (1744-1829) was a French scientist who developed an alternative theory at the beginning of the 19th century (1809). His theory centered on two ideas:
· the law of use and disuse
· the law of inheritance of acquired characteristics

|Mind-Brain Duality||Dr. van Lommel has carried out research and surveys of patients who have had near-death experiences. He has documented NDE when there has been no apparent brain function. He has suggested in papers in the highly respected international journal of medical science and practice, The Lancet, that consciousness does not arise from the brain but that the brain acts similarly to a television receiver, processing the consciousness which comes from beyond the brain.
Dr. Sam Parnia, one of two doctors from Southampton General Hospital in England who have been studying so-called near-death experiences (NDEs), told Reuters in an interview. “The studies are very significant in that we have a group of people with no brain function … who have well-structured, lucid thought processes with reasoning and memory formation at a time when their brains are shown not to function. We need to do much larger-scale studies, but the possibility is certainly there to suggest that consciousness, or the soul, keeps thinking and reasoning even if a person‘s heart has stopped, he is not breathing and his brain activity is nil” By Sarah Tippit for Reuters.

|Edgar Mitchell||Nature’s Mind: the Quantum Hologram
Mitchell founded IONS, a human potential organization encouraged by ATransC.
This paper presents a hypothesis for integrating into the scientific framework phenomena of consciousness which frequently have been considered beyond scientific description. Intuition, telepathy, clairvoyance and many similar information phenomena seem to be easily explained by means of the nonlocal quantum hologram. It is further postulated that from the point of view of evolution, quantum nonlocality is the basis from which self-organizing cosmological processes have produced the common phenomenon of perception in living organisms.
Editor: While elements of this hypothesis do describe what is being found via transcommunication, especially nonlocality, it fails to address personality’s apparent existence prior to physical existence. See the ATransC Survival Hypothesis

|Wilhelm Reich||Nonsense About Reich and Orgone on Internet
How the distortions of “orgonite”, “orgone generators”, “orgone pyramids”, “holy hand grenades”, “chembusters”, and other concoctions from the internet madhouse work to destroy Wilhelm Reich’s research legacy, and reveal a profound hatred for the man and his works.
Probably the most significant and blatant example of FDA aggression and anti-Constitutional activity is the case of Dr. Wilhelm Reich. The Reich Legal Case surpassed the Scopes Monkey Trial in legal and historical significance, as it clearly marked the willingness of the US courts to condone the censoring of speech, the burning of books, the unreasonable seizure of property, and the willful ignoring of written documents presented to judges… all for the sake of supporting the medical orthodoxy.
The following is a presentation of Wilhelm Reich’s (at right) discoveries, observations, and theories about orgone energy in reference to the orgone energy accumulator and it’s uses.
Orgone accumulator devices are experimental; they are not medical devices, and not a substitute for professional medical care. If you have a medical condition, please consult a health care professional.

|Seth||Jane Roberts brought to us in one of her Seth material. As you may know, Jane Roberts documented the teachings of Seth in numerous books. In Session 635, Nature of Personality Reality (Page page 149, I think), (1980, Bantam Books) Seth discusses the natural aggressive tendencies of humans. He maintains that there is one cardinal commandment that we have need to understand. That is, “Thou shalt not violate.” (Do no harm?) Interpreting his supporting dialogue:
The Cardinal Commandment:
Thou shalt not impose thy will on others.

The Content-Source Problem in Modern Mediumship Research by By Paul F. Cunningham, River University, 2012. (http://www.rivier.edu/faculty/pcunningham/Publications/CunninghamJP_Fall-2012-Vol-76-(2)-295-319.pdf)
ABSTRACT: This article examines the methodological issue of whether the content of mediumistic/channeled communications can be used to determine the source of those communications (“content-source problem”) within the context of the trancepossession mediumship of Jane Roberts. The Seth material receives a thorough new examination in light of three approaches to the content-source problem in modern mediumship research that promises to advance the present state of discussion of this issue. A process-oriented investigation of phenomenological processes underlying Roberts’s channeling experience, a hermeneutic examination of Roberts’s channeling behavior, and a rhetorical analysis of the dictated Seth material offer novel analyses of the Seth phenomenon that might shed some light on the case.
From his conclusions: An adequate (adequatio) understanding of the trance-possession mediumship of Jane Roberts grounds itself in the public record of the case and includes Jane Roberts’s lived understanding of her own experience as a trance channel and Seth’s own practical understanding of himself. Seth either is or is not a production of Jane Roberts’s psyche. In either case, we are led to the possibility that human personality may have a greater reality and awareness than is generally supposed

From the website: “In the hypothesis of formative causation, discussed in detail in my books A NEW SCIENCE OF LIFE and THE PRESENCE OF THE PAST, I propose that memory is inherent in nature. Most of the so-called laws of nature are more like habits.”
An excellent place to begin learning about Sheldrake’s concepts is by reading his Glossary.
