7.4 – THE GENIUS FACTOR (11.21.14)


Madras, India. In the first decade of the 20th-century, Srinivasa Ramanujan a young mathematician with no formal training repeatedly stuns the academic world with innovative theorems. Even some of the world’s leading mathematicians are confounded by his remarkable formulas. But just as astounding as Ramanujan’s work is the fact that these formulas came to him in dreams.

“He claimed that a goddess, a Hindu goddess known as Namagiri transmitted these theorems to him. These theorems came to be known as modular functions, and still to this day, they are the most advanced form of mathematics that is used by physicists dealing with relativity and quantum mechanics.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),

(The Synchronicity Key)

How could someone without any background in mathematics see such complicated theorems in dreams? Does Ramanujan’s story reveal how humanity can access knowledge outside the brain?

“So, it really raises, I think, the interesting question as we explore consciousness more from a scientific point of view, and understand it better what types of connections and communications are occurring on the more cosmic scale? So “what other connections exist” “out there?” I think is a very interesting question to explore.”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist/Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

“The people who have these inspirations, it’s not like they were deriving it. It comes from the unconscious. The unconscious is still a great mystery, you know? Is it just our unconscious? Or is it the collective unconscious?”

– Diane Hennacy Powell, MD (Author, The ESP Enigma)

Could true genius be the product of a universal mind or collective unconsciousness? Ancient Hindus believed such a repository of knowledge actually exists a universal force that includes every thought, action, emotion or experience that any person ever had or ever will have. Westerners later named it the Akashic Record.

“This is a Sanskrit word, it means “sky.” It’s something that can be accessed through your mind, through your brain power, through your spiritual wavelength. Having access to that information which is there, that is not written, but it somehow you have to be able to be in tune with that frequency in order to obtain that.”

– Deepak Shimkhada, Ph.D.
(Adjunct Prof. of Religion, Claremont Graduate Univ.),
(Prof. of Hindu Studies, Claremont Lincoln Univ.,
School of Theology)

Could it be that the common talent all geniuses possess is actually an ability to access the wisdom of the Akashic Record or universal mind? And if so, have other modern geniuses acquired knowledge from an otherworldly realm? Einstein received the inspiration for his groundbreaking Theory of Relativity in a dream. Friedrich August Kekulé discovered the elusive shape of the benzene molecule during a daydream in which he saw a snake chasing its tail. And the brilliant Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev literally dreamed up the Periodic Table of the Elements.

“He, in this dream, saw exactly where all of the elements lined up. The periodic table itself came in a dream. Just fully formed. After coming out of the dream, he quickly drew them all down. And it’s still the same that we use today.”

– Diane Hennacy Powell, MD (Author, The ESP Enigma)

Is it possible that a universal mind has bestowed genius on certain individuals throughout history? And might there be scientific evidence of this phenomenon?

At the Mind Research Network at the University of New Mexico, neuropsychologist Rex Jung uses a magnetoencephalography or MEG machine to measure the brainwave activity of a test subject. Dr. Jung believes this test may show how creative inspiration strikes the brain.

“We have three tasks that we’re going to run with Andre. The first one is vocabulary, second one is paper folding and the third one is inductive reasoning.”

Rex Jung, Ph.D. (Asst. Prof. of Neurosurgery, Univ. of NM)

As the test subject performs these everyday tasks, the MEG machine measures normal brain activity. But then Jung has the test subject clear his mind. As the subject relaxes his mind, his brain activity decreases. But then, suddenly, the MEG machine detects something new: alpha waves. Scientists say these brainwaves indicate the unconscious mind is working behind the scenes, outside our conscious thoughts.

“The alpha wave have found to be associated with divergent thinking, the manifestation of creative cognition, and it’s also associated with relaxing the brain and this is something very important, I think, to the manifestation of genius, this ability to think of new and useful ideas that haven’t been thought of before.”

Rex Jung, Ph.D. (Asst. Prof. of Neurosurgery, Univ. of NM)

Could alpha waves have been how Ramanujan, Einstein and Mendeleev received their flashes of brilliance? Or how the ancients could have channeled the gods’ wisdom as they developed their civilization? If so, where does mainstream science believe these thoughts come from?

“That is the million-dollar question. It’s kind of like you know, what is consciousness?  This is kind of a question that really stumps neuroscientists.”

Rex Jung, Ph.D. (Asst. Prof. of Neurosurgery, Univ. of NM)

Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe it is possible that what appears to be divine or inspired brilliance that pops unexpectedly into the minds of geniuses could come not from the human mind, but from an extraterrestrial realm.

“Overall, time after time, we’re seeing a through line here suggesting that there is a deliberate interface with our minds that is steering the progress of human invention and human innovation according to a predefined script for a desired, targeted outcome.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“So you have to ask yourself, are extraterrestrials somehow using this incredible volume of knowledge of the universal mind and then directing it to certain people at certain times when the time is right and, in a sense, supervising the education of certain people who are ready to receive this knowledge?”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

If the Akashic Record actually exists, could extraterrestrials be using it to transmit knowledge intended to shape our civilization? Perhaps the answer can be found by examining breakthroughs in science and technology that are achieved by multiple people in separate locations simultaneously.
