Minister of Art - at FB

“It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile.” No matter what they do, be true to yourself. Hello Facebook. No matter what, Je suis Ministero Arte y Salta.

One morning I couldn’t log on to facebook any longer… Weird… I got this note saying they suspected me of not using my real name. (I’ve used the same “Minister of Art” since I first joined Facebook in 2008 or so…). I thought maybe they just wanted to keep a record of my “real name” somewhere, so I filled it in and Bingo. I could log on. But imagine my sursprise when I found out that they changed my username!! No more Minister of Art… So I wrote this confession of a sort:

—————————————————–

Facebooks latest dirty trick forced me to change to my given name, and at the same time it drew a small family secret out in the open. When I first started out as an artist I was very reluctant to use my real name since the name Carl Larsson holds a bit of anticipation in the Art world. I even changed my surname for many years! My late great-great uncle Carl Olof Larsson was a not half-baked painter and as a young emerging artist I just couldn’t bear the crushing weight of being compared with him and judged as being “the new Carl Larsson”… Such things tend to put a lot of strain on a young wannabe artist… especially if he actually hates to paint. To be judged side by side with my great-great uncle just made me feel very inferior. Since then I’ve made my own way through the Art world, striving, sometimes long outside the beaten path, for a painter. I just hated everything with painting and made my way into storytelling and performance instead. Eventually I studied to be a painter and today I don’t have that same fear of painting anymore (although I still don’t do it much at all) and recently I changed my legal name back to the family name again. Regaining control of my identity. Thanks a lot Facebook. But this was not exactly how I envisioned me coming out and telling it as it is, but your trick have now forced me to take the final step.

Je suis Larsson!

Quantum Theory Proves Consciousness Moves To Another Universe At Death

Sunday, February 9th, 2014

A book titled “Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe“ has stirred up the Internet, because it contained a notion that life does not end when the body dies, and it can last forever. The author of this publication, scientist Dr. Robert Lanza who was voted the 3rd most important scientist alive by the NY Times, has no doubts that this is possible.

Lanza points to the structure of the universe itself, and that the laws, forces, and constants of the universe appear to be fine-tuned for life, implying intelligence existed prior to matter. He also claims that space and time are not objects or things, but rather tools of our animal understanding. Lanza says that we carry space and time around with us “like turtles with shells.” meaning that when the shell comes off (space and time), we still exist.

The theory implies that death of consciousness simply does not exist. It only exists as a thought because people identify themselves with their body. They believe that the body is going to perish, sooner or later, thinking their consciousness will disappear too. If the body generates consciousness, then consciousness dies when the body dies. But if the body receives consciousness in the same way that a cable box receives satellite signals, then of course consciousness does not end at the death of the physical vehicle. In fact, consciousness exists outside of constraints of time and space. It is able to be anywhere: in the human body and outside of it. In other words, it is non-local in the same sense that quantum objects are non-local.

Consciousness resides, according to Stuart and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose, in the microtubules of the brain cells, which are the primary sites of quantum processing.  Upon death, this information is released from your body, meaning that your consciousness goes with it. They have argued that our experience of consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects in these microtubules, a theory which they dubbed orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR).

Consciousness, or at least proto-consciousness is theorized by them to be a fundamental property of the universe, present even at the first moment of the universe during the Big Bang. “In one such scheme proto-conscious experience is a basic property of physical reality accessible to a quantum process associated with brain activity.”

Our souls are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe – and may have existed since the beginning of time.  Our brains are just receivers and amplifiers for the proto-consciousness that is intrinsic to the fabric of space-time. So is there really a part of your consciousness that is non-material and will live on after the death of your physical body?
