The New-Age Conspiratorial World of Gregg Braden


I started listening to Coast to Coast AM somewhat regularly when I started to “get into” modern science-based skepticism. I wanted to know what the “true-believers” thought and to learn about all sorts of ideas that are out there. Often, the ideas are anti-“establishment,” which is why they are a supporter of Ron Paul or “alternative medicine.” Often they’re “new-agey.” Sometimes they’re both.

Sometimes they’re so over the top that you have a difficult time believing people actually think that. Sometimes the people on the show (often, actually) will distort the actual facts to support their claims. Sometimes they will make them up.

This long rambling introduction is to point out all of the things that various C2C guests bring. The one I’m going to discuss here brings in all of them. This is a somewhat long post, but there is a lot to say about Gregg Braden. If you’re wondering who this person is, I’m not going to give a short bio section, rather I’m going to illustrate his views through time throughout this post, like dipping a candle in successive colors.

Through Time

I first got curious about this person last weekend when I was looking at the C2C schedule for the week ahead and saw he was on. I did a search through the ~135 gigabytes of episodes I have of C2C for the past two decades. His name popped up not infrequently, so I started to listen to him starting with his 1999 interview conducted by Art Bell. (Note that he had been on earlier shows, at least dating back to 1992, but I do not have those.)

I listened to about 16 hours of interview, and then I re-listened to about half of them to pull out the quotes and points I wanted to use for this (and maybe an eventual podcast).

The “Early” Years – Pre-2001

Okay, technically I only had one episode from February 5, 1999, and then the next was in 2006. But based on later material, things changed for Braden in the few years after Sept. 11, 2001. I’ll talk about that later.

During this earlier time, Braden comes off as your standard new-agey anti-establishment person: Darwinism is evil, consciousness rules. There really wasn’t much unique about his message.

He was an avid advocate of “free energy” devices, claimed there was copious evidence that our DNA was currently evolving rapidly even though he doesn’t “believe” in evolution, that through consciousness we can “activate junk DNA” and do kewl stuff, and generally ranted for four whole hours on how scientists won’t let the “real” knowledge out to the general public. Fairly run-of-the mill, really.

May 6, 2006 Interview

In this interview, I noticed something of a shift in Braden’s attitude. While he was still hawking his books and advocating his ideas, he seemed to have shifted more towards alleged evidence for his claims and “research” he was doing. This was much more evident in the later interviews (next section).

January 6, 2008 Interview

Now we really got into the idea of “let’s throw out some sciencey stuff that sounds more real than what I peddled a decade ago” (no, he didn’t actually say that, that was my impression).

He makes a few interesting claims. The first I noted down is during hour 2 of the program at 17 minutes into the hour, he states that Nature (one of the top science journals in the world) published a study by Silvertooth in volume 322, August 26, 1986, page 590. It’s actually August 14, but I’ll forgive that. (Here’s the “study,” subscription required.) Problem is that this was not an article Nature “published,” it’s a letter that they included that spans less than 1/3 of a page. In it, Ernest W. Silvertooth claims to have conducted an experiment that proved there is an “ether” through which light propagates, disproving General Relativity, and the famous Michelson-Morley Experiment (conducted where I got my undergraduate degree … a century earlier).

Interesting. It’s a letter to the editor. Not peer-reviewed. Silvertooth’s name shows up on Anti-Relativity.com. And the only way he got a paper out is by publishing it himself. And yet Braden claims this is undeniable proof that scientists won’t let the secrets of the universe out and that this guy irrefutably showed that the standard ideas are not real.

However, he takes this a step further to say that the “ether” is not just a medium through which light travels, rather it’s the general consciousness field in which we all exist.

Later in the interview, in hour 3, starting at 8:25 in, he states:

“What our own science has found is that our heart is the strongest electrical field generator in the body, and it is the strongest magnetic field generator in the body, and the reason that’s important is our physical world hinges largely on electric and magnetic fields. … [In atoms,] if we change EITHER the electric or magnetic field, we can change and influence the way that atom behaves, and our heart creates BOTH, not just one or the other. …

“(9:37) And this is why feelings in our heart are so much more powerful than thoughts in our mind, because our own science now is telling us that our heart creates electrical fields that are 60-100x stronger than the fields of our brain. … And magnetic fields 5000x stronger from our heart than those of the brain, and that explains to us why thoughts aren’t as powerful … and it’s much easier to heal and create peace and alter our physical reality from our hearts than it is through our thoughts, and our hearts are where we have the feelings, and the beliefs, that communicate with this field and connects everything.”

Got all that? I warned you he’s a new-ager. But he made some specific statements. The easy first one to check on is the field strength of the heart and brain. According to this source, the brain’s value is on the order of 0.1-1.0 pT, or picoTesla (10-12 = 1 pico). And according to this source, the strength of the heart is around 10 pT. So he’s sorta right in his first statement that at the extremes, the heart’s magnetic field at the surface of the body is 100x stronger than the brain’s. But not 5000x as he states a few sentences later. And it bears mentioning that Earth’s field is on the order of 10-4 T at Earth’s surface, or 107 times stronger than the human heart’s as measured from the surface of the body.

He also was talking about how magnetic and electric fields are different, which I really don’t want to get into in this post, but basically he’s stretching the truth.

The kicker comes about 14 minutes 55 seconds into the episode where he states:

“This is how science is kinda backing into the fact that we are connected with our world. They’re seeing that the human heart – literally – can change the physical stuff our physical world is made of through this electric and magnetic fields. And they’re also finding that we’re literally tuned to layers of the atmosphere of the Earth through these fields.”

Yeah. Please show your work.

March 17, 2009 Interview

At this point, he is invested more fully in the idea of his Institute of HeartMath and Global Coherence project and he starts to bring in alleged evidence for his claims. This was where I really got interested, and frankly it’s about the only part that really gets into the topics I discuss on this blog (astronomy, physics, geology).

Its within these that he adopts the standard “amateur science” motif that we ridicule in skepticism: He misinterprets basic data and misrepresents other data (one could call it lying, but that implies I actually know that he knew he was doing these things, and I don’t — at the very least, he is sorely mistaken and data-mines).

I already addressed the whole atom an magnetic field and electric field and heart-brain fields with the 2006 interview. And evolution with the 1999 interview. He also talks about 2012 in this one, but there’s really nothing new he contributes to the mythos so I don’t want to go into it here.

He also makes a specific reference to another Nature paper about the Milky Way’s black hole and energy shooting towards us, saying it’s by “Rhode and Miller” in volume 434, October 2004. Problem is that volume 434 is for March-April 2005, and October 2004 is in volume 431. I searched all and could not find it. So much for that.

He even carries on again with a basic rant 15 minutes in about how the ancients knew everything and we know nothing. But I’m not going to go into that, either

Nay, the one I want to talk about here comes from this rather lengthy quote from the March 17, 2009 interview:

“2001, scientists were measuring the geomagnetic field of the Earth, from two satellites, one int he Northern Hemisphere, one in the Southern Hemisphere, called GOES … . Every 30 minutes they send back a signal that tells the strength of the magnetic field … and it fluctuates, but it’s always within this range. And in 2001, all of a sudden, there was a big spike in this field, and scientists said, ‘Well, you know, what happened to the magnetic field of the Earth to create this change?’ They overlaid the data onto the calendar, and it’s probably no surprise to our listeners, that the date was Sept. 11, 2001. And it was 15 minutes after the first plane struck the first tower in the World Trade Center that the magnetic fields of the Earth showed this big spike. …

“That led to a series of studies that showed that it was the collective emotions of humans on this planet that had such a profound effect on the magnetic field of the Earth that our satellites, 22,000 miles above the surface, detected this change, and these scientists said, ‘Woah! That means that we are literally … part of the field that sustains the life on Earth.’ That led to a series of experiments that showed that when many people learn to create this quality of emotion inside of their hearts that the magnetic fields of the Earth convey this change to all life on Earth, and that is what I think the opportunity of our time in history is all about.”

In fact, he has this in print, in his book Fractal Time a short excerpt I found on scribd.com:

“September 2001, two geostationary operational environmental satellites (GOES) orbiting the earth detected a rise in global magnetism that forever changed the way scientists view our world and us. The GOES-8 and GOES-10 each showed a powerful spike of Earth’s magnetic-field strength in the readings they broadcast every 30 minutes. It was the magnitude of the spikes and the time they occurred that first called them to the scientists’ attention.

“From a location of about 22,300 miles above the equator, GOES-8 detected the first surge, followed by an upward trend in the readings that topped out at nearly 50 units (nanoteslas) higher than any that had been typical for the same time previously. The time was 9a.m. eastern standard time, 15 minutes after the first plane hit the World Trade Center and about 15 minutes before the second impact.”

Yes, those were long. The bottom-line claim here is that Earth’s magnetic field was altered by human emotion during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City. This is similar to claims by the Global Consciousness Project, but different. The nice thing is that this is highly objective data that’s easy to find and check. Which I did. I even contacted the institution that runs the GOES to get a bit of help and information (thanks to Dan Wilkinson and Ted Haberman).

For brief background, GOES are and have been many different satellites, and they are periodically launched and decommissioned as one wears out and technology advances. We’re now on GOES 11 and 13 as the main two, though GOES 12, 14, and 15 are in orbit. In September 2001, GOES 8 and 10 were in operation (it looks like there were some issues with GOES 11 at that time).

These satellites orbit at about 6.6 Earth radii from the planet, and our magnetic field extends to about 10 Earth radii, so it is correct that they can measure the magnetic field, and they do contain instruments to measure magnetic fields at their location. Though they send back data that’s binned in 5-minute intervals, not 30-minute intervals.

The data that Braden and others present at their Global Coherence Institute is the exact image below (I’m directing to their web site so you know I’m not making it up).

Global Coherence Image for GOES Data on Sept. 11, 2001

Global Coherence Image for GOES Data on Sept. 11, 2001

Looks kinda interesting. The field is varying between about 50 and 125 nT (nanoTeslas) in the four days leading up to Sept. 11, 2001, and then it spikes to 173 nT as seen from one satellite and 153 nT as seen from another. Then it seems to vary slightly more than it had in the few days after. Do we have something here? Are they making these data up?

Actually, they’re not. The data do show that spike. You can view it for yourself here for GOES 8 or here for GOES 10.

So now the logical question in evaluating this claim is, “They’re showing a week-long window. What does the field look like at other times? What’s the normal variability?” And let’s avoid any idea they might claim of contamination from the craziness of that month.

To answer that, I chose a random month and I skipped back to June 2001. The data I show below (all data is on that site, specifically downloaded from here) show that the normal variations for the magnetic field are about 60-125 nT (so that agrees with the Sept. 2001 baseline), but in this random month of June, there were spikes all the way up to 186 nT (higher than Sept. 11, 2001 by about 15 nT). Hmm.

GOES Magnetic Data, June 2001

GOES Magnetic Data, June 2001

In fact, since I have the data in my grubby little hands, I can actually do some basic statistics. The average from GOES 8 during June 2001 was 113 nT, and from GOES 10 it was 97 nT. The standard deviations were ±10.6 and ±14.6 nT, respectively. In September 2001, the averages and standard deviations were 109±14.2 nT and 95±20 nT. So they agree with each other. September 2001 was not an odd month at all.

I then chose a different random month and year, January 1998 (the Global Consciousness Project people would probably say they’d expect at least two significant events during this month, one for the new US Congress taking office and one for New Year’s Day). Or November 2007. Both of those months’ data are displayed below. The maxima were 173 for GOES 9 in January 1998 (but a minimum of only 22 nT!) and 188 nT in November 2007 with GOES 11 (there was some data drop-out in the last week of the month from GOES 10).

GOES Magnetic Data, January 1998

GOES Magnetic Data, January 1998

GOES Magnetic Data, November 2007

GOES Magnetic Data, November 2007

The inescapable conclusion at this point is – as I said before – at best it’s “window-shopping” or data-mining. At worst it’s willful deceit of their audience. As is clearly shown by these data, the September 11, 2001, “spike” in Earth’s magnetic field is not an abnormal “spike,” but rather we see fluctuations even larger than that several times a month.

Final Thoughts

This actually brings me back a bit to what I consider “fair game” in terms of skepticism and this blog. I’m okay if you want to be a creationist, a UFO believer, a new-ager, or whatever (so long as you don’t try to force your beliefs on me). But when you actually start to point towards observable, checkable evidence for your claims, it’s totally fair game. And as I’ve shown here, Braden would be much better off sticking to his random new-agey claims than trying to use science to back them up.



  1. I have covered Gregg Braden briefly before and I will write a short post of an article he has written in an anthology: http://haecceities.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/2012-prophet-of-nonsense-2-gregg-braden/

    Guess who commented on this post? Mr galactic alignment himself.

    • Impressive the Jenkins actually posted a reply! It’s interesting – his use of really big words in his insults is reminiscent of purveyors of nonsense who’ve come across my critiques of them, too. I wonder if that’s part of the test you take when you want to get your membership card to that li’l club.

      • Right now occurred to me that you don`t might need to join science with spirituality as a new era topic to study. ‘Spirituality is already a scientific object of study in psychology for example: the mind, emotions, values, etc’. I was send to study Gregg Braden for my license in psychology but now I`m not interested in something that is not proven scientific based.
        Thanks for the email.

  5. What you didn’t include in your article are events of the world that would have caused spikes in elevated magnetic readings on the days of the charts from 1998, 2007, 2011… look up international news that occured on the days where spike levels elevate and there are news events of great proportion at those specific times. When you correlate the information from the spikes in the collected data with international catastrophe events, it only further defines the very essence of Braden’s work.

    • I chose those months/dates at random with dice. If what your are saying is any randomly selected time period is going to have a spike in the data because of a non-pre-defined “significant event,” then this is not a useful test of anything because any time can be retrofitted. So I would ask you three things at this point to start to back up your claim.

      First, what are the significant events during the random months I selected that you claim caused effects GREATER THAN the field spike caused by our “collective consciousness screaming out” on September 11, 2001? Second, what do YOU consider, a priori, a significant event that you predict would cause a spike that I could then look at the data for to test? Third, what months would you say can be used as a control in which there would NOT be what you consider a significant event to see what the “background field levels” would be?

      • It seems like your looking for faults. Have you approached this person who your bagging out and asked him these questions? It does appear that you have chosen to express your self in somewhat of a less than exciting and joyful manner. I carnt help but think it would have been far more productive to ask these questions to Braden (with the audience you seek) and far more respectful. If Gregg Braden is corrupted or misleading people, spend more time working on your self expression (thats what you want don’t you to communicate, have an audience and help people) rather than ask people to sit through this morbid and boring expression… Maybe with all your hours you spent doing research with Braden you may have learned something positive, i.e. how to communicate and capture an audience. Reading 5 minutes of your words and choice of expression compared to reading 5 minutes of Bradens is vastly different. Ask your self, If its really the truth you want to share and its an audience you seek “isn’t there anything I could learn from the way Gregg Braden communicates”

        The Truth comes from belief and is based on a perception. To just talk about all Greggs apparent miss conceptions and neglect the profound positive effect Gregg Braden has had on this planet is childish. You come across with plenty of arrogance and ignorance but I thank you for pointing out Greggs inconsistencies. I Might write directly to Gregg Braden and ask him, if you had more class you would have done the same thing instead of misleading people your self. You could have published your emails or letter to Gregg asking him to explain herself and even spoke about how he did or didn’t respond. Your investigating and research skills are poor coming from a narrow view point. So what if he’s wrong, ask him his thoughts or tell him his wrong if you’ve found otherwise.. Argue.. debate. I teach my children if you’ve got something to say about someone say it to their face… Have you approached Gregg Braden with your concerns ????

    • I’d love to see the real data that corresponds with the 2005 Tsunami that killed more than 350,000 people and destroyed towns and villages all over the Pacific Rim. One could easily window shop for distressful news on the dates of the spikes. There’s always going to be stuff happening that could be pushed into the mix. BUT, it’s not every year that something so tragic happens as that tsunami. Anyone want to look that up?

    • I work in a field considered ‘new agey’, have for decades. I have never trusted Gregg Bradens ‘work’ and the whole ‘Secret’ mentality smacks of Ameri-centric consumerist ideals. Why there would be a spike on 911 and not on the many other days of atrocities subjected upon other nations in the world is one of the view points that turned me right off. I am interested in real people and real science and results and appreciate people checking information spewed out there.

      Now in the case of the late Dr. Emoto, I met this man and his lovely wife and found them to be kind, compassionate and honest people. I asked them about the work they were doing and was appreciative of the well informed answers that were far from the type of grandstanding that Braden does. I do not believe for a moment that Emoto’s work is fraudulent, just would love to see more experiments that work with real human interactions and the effects on the physical environment.

      The water keepers movement in North America is an example of how this traditional knowledge of the relationship between human and water has been around for thousands of years. I do not discount the knowledge of Indigenous peoples just because it was not conducted in a lab, but call into question what many of these modern American charlatans share as ‘scientific proof’ of the claims they sell int heir million dollar businesses.

  10. Gregg Braden’s work explains the theory behind the alleged “Law of Attraction” that was portrayed in the movie ” The Secret” with the participation of some prominent success coaches in the context of Business and Success Principles like Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield and many more. If you have watched that film, you would probably asked how it could be possible and Gregg works clearly answers the “WHY’s and HOW’s behind the Law of Attraction. Not only the ” The Secret Principles” but also the book ” As the Man Thinketh” by James Allen, “PsychoCybernetics” by: I forget the Author :D, and the thoughts behind the books of Napoleon Hill..if you will spend time on knowing whats behind all of these stuff, your search will be over if you read the book of Gregg Braden ” The Language of Devine Matrix”

  11. The great sages, the Rishis of ancient India had revealed similar knowledge than Gregg Braden and i suppose all the traditional wisdoms are also speaking about the same “facts” which could and cannot never be proved by the rational mind which is quite limited compared to the vast realms of the Spirits that only a few wish to discover. i think that to understand what G.Bradden is saying there has to be a shift-consciousness which can be achieved through different yogic disciplines. The gift of the openness of the heart is not something everyone is born with and probably G.Bradden was one of these lucky one to have kept feelings and heart, though he lives in the US, a country which is more brain-made than heart-orientated.
    i do hope if you want to sustain your research on truth that you will look at the knowledge contained in the science of the chakras, it might give you a key to open both, your heart and your spirit,

  12. I never think about right or wrong except for my own thinking and doing. Actually, our instrument of understanding, the Intellect, was never given to judge others’ affairs as Bety Kyron says in her wonderful Work, except our own affairs, our own life.
    Are we using it in a constructive, creative way? for the benefits and the evolution of all life on this planet? Or only to destroy, to judge, to blame, to put our nose into the affairs of others.
    In India we say that when just a single finger points out to others, the four others are going to point towards oneself.
    The law is accurate, eternal, universal and merciless.
    But i can observe that the guy you are defaming with so many bad feelings, hatred, is having a very rich, interesting Life.
    Have you? Are your relationship in order? your family life? your health? your creativity?
    People who have a beautiful, creative life have no time to put their nose into the affairs of others, doing that always smell, and leave a corpse in the cupboard.
    To finish, i will leave something similar to what Gandhiji has always said:

    Far to many souls waste Time and Energy blaming the wrongs in the world on everyone else instead of recognizing that they can do something about it when they start within themselves. Start putting your own house in order first.
    When a stone is thrown into the centre of a pond, they start from that stone, they start from the centre.
    Start with yourself.
    Then you can radiate Peace, Love, Harmony and Understanding out to All souls around you. Get into Action Now.
    You long to see a better world, then do something about it, not by pointing your finger at everyone else but by Looking Within, searching your Heart, Righting your own wrongs and finding the answer within yourself.
    Then you can move forward with Authority and be a real help for your neighbors and to all those you are in contact with.
    Change starts with the individual, then goes Into the community, the town, the nation And The World.

    • I would turn around and ask if Braden is doing what you say: is he using his intellect in a constructive way? No, he is not, he is simply grossly mistaken in his facts and using them to bolster his own preconceived non-demonstrable and non-scientific beliefs, or he is lying about the data to support his same ideas. That does harm not only to the people he fools and buy into his products or don’t seek real medical care, but it brings the collective intellect of the world down.

      I am not “defaming” him. The definition of defamation is:

      Any intentional false communication, either written or spoken, that harms a person’s reputation; decreases the respect, regard, or confidence in which a person is held; or induces disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable opinions or feelings against a person.

      Rather, I am pointing out that he is factually wrong. Something objective, not subjective. And my life is quite fulfilling and happy, thank you for your concern. I suggest that you stop thinking that everyone can spout what they want and play fast and loose with science, but instead recognize that some people are simply wrong and out to scam people and make money off of others’ stupidity.

      • Thanks for your article, Stuart. I only recently came across Braden, and have spent approx. 10 hours listening to his Hooey. I fully believe he’s worse than a charlatan. His bio says he was/is a manager for Cisco. I think it was Edward Snowden who brought to the public’s attention, Cisco. I knew personally what they were doing 10 years ago in NS Canada in my home. Braden spreads evil under the guise of peace and sucks in quite a few through it. I could list a number of examples but don’t have time just now to go back through his videos to document why I say so but I’d tell any decent person to stay away. Sorry you have to put up with so many clueball commenters. Thanks again for a great article. Laughed about your grubby little hand, especially!

    • Greg Braden is all about making money. his claims only keep people from the truth. People who believe him are victims and not evolving and that is their choice.Intelligent people who are looking for truth, look and see his distortion of things known to be true and they view anything he says as a lie. There are a few things he says that have some true, but they will get lost AMONG HIS MANY LIES.

  13. Do you realize that criticizing another tells more about you than it does them? “Those who can — do. Those who can’t — criticize.” -Unknown Source
    If you are truly brilliant, educated and gifted why are you not out on the leading edge of science helping with a new discovery? What hope or solutions do you offer mankind? Why are you not drawing crowds of thousands like this man? Why are you not loved like this man? Your envy is obvious and your insignificance disturbs you. You remind me of a cur dog who nips at a fireman’s pants leg on his way to put out a fire. If you are engaged in brilliant research as you say and truly “on your way to put out your own fire” why would you stop in the middle of that great work to pose as a cur dog for the next fire truck?

    • Making things up is much easier than real science, Linda. I find it fascinating that you chose to insult me when you’re saying that I’m doing the wrong thing by criticizing someone. Try actually addressing the rebuttal I made about his claims. Try some actual investigation. Or, continue to insult people and accomplish nothing.

    • Hey Linda, I’m not sure if you know Mr Braden personally or not, but if you do could you please ask him for an update on that whole “3 days of darkness and then the Earth will start spinning in the opposite direction” prediction which he made in Awakening to Zero Point for late last year? It’s just that I’m planning my holiday, and as I’ve only got 5 days obviously I don’t want to book it if it’s going to be pitch black for 72 hours. Thx.

    • Hitler drew crowds of thousands. So did Jesus. So did Ghandi. So did many others. While I believe there is truth in some of Braden’s thinking, distortion of facts and pretending sources of information as evidence undermines his integrity and I for one am very grateful that Stuart Robbins has gone to so much effort to to research facts and save me the trouble. We need to be very careful that we explore our ideas dispassionately and not embrace somebody’s thoughts completely just because something ‘resonates’ with us. Discernment is necessary or we find ourselves ‘worshipping idols’ and ‘following false gods’ instead of thinking for ourselves and ‘being’ from our hearts.

  14. I think we all have to learn discernment, to search for our own truth. Whether we find our truth from a religious teacher, new age guru or scientist or our parents or indeed a combination of these sources, ultimately we have free will and choice of what we believe.

    From Gregg Braden I learn to live from my heart through love and compassion. My heart can send my love to others…whether it is through a field of connected consciousness or simply through my daily life actions. However I too questioned his sources and I was led to this posting. I agreed he needs to use correct reporting of studies if he is going to use them to strength his teachings. Personally, I think he should leave them out of his seminars. It is fine to explore ancient wisdoms, but we have all the tools, paint and canvas to create what we want in this present moment. If we are truly experiencing new energies, then we need to create new ways of creating a peaceful world. This is what I believe Mr. Braden is trying to do, but he needs to keep it simple and without dragging in bits and pieces of scientific data that are not accurately explained.

    Through science, we see new information being revealed and data recorded and then it is challenged and then new information revealed and recorded etc. It is interesting how the magnetic field is in constant change and how it dips and spikes. To take part of what is recorded and to not show the whole study is not fair to the reader/audience of Gregg Braden. I do not see Stuart Robbins as being critical but someone who is exploring ‘the truth’ from his point of view. I thank him for being discerning, speaking up and exploring data rather than believing everything a speaker says.

    However, I also agree with the writer Satyam Ratyam that we find our truth within and from there we can share our authentic self in a peaceful way. Each of us has the opportunity of discovering a ‘way’ or truth that makes our life meaningful, happy and peaceful. Each of has a right to our own truth and it is not about having others agree with you but simply to live in your truth to create a better life for all.

  15. My question is not about Gregg Braden is about the EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Is the EFT a pseudoscience? I`ve practiced it everyday and it works, at least it gives me back the energy I need to continue with the work at home, for a few hours gets rid of my backache,etc.
    I didn`t know that acupuncture was a pseudoscience (read on RDFRS) so I think it must be good because y massage myself with the tapping and what works too is the things ones says to yourself likee …and I completely and deeply accept myself”.

    • Our health insurance company pays for acupuncture and it’s at a $15 copay same as a general practitioner. We have a major insurance company, so that must say something about the effectiveness of accupuncture.

      • Since insurance companies are always on the forefront of science and will only cover what is medically sound? This is an argument from authority fallacy (insurance covers it, therefore it works), and not even a good authority at that.

  17. Good honest science has helped me escape my childhood of indoctrination with fundamentalist Christian beliefs like young Earth creationism. It’s so sad to see ‘science’ misused by so many other weirdos. Thank you Stuart for your patience in this unenviable task of checking each pseudoscience claim against the hard evidence.

    To the people upset by this blog post I would say: I do want world peace, love and compassion just as much as you do, and I’m sure Stuart does too. I think we should all work together and build on solid evidence to increase our knowledge of the universe to achieve these goals, and if someone wants to believe something crazy, that’s not ideal but it’s not too bad so long as they don’t try to teach it to other people as if it was proven fact.

    The big problem with people like Braden or Chopra is that they encourage people to abandon scientific medical practices that have repeatedly been proven to work, and cause people to invest a lot of time trying to communicate with stuff that probably doesn’t exist. Worst of all they twist the truth about human origins and human impact on this planet, encouraging people to just enjoy life and not worry about what our planet will be like in a few centuries’ time. Many people like to hear this and buy the books, meanwhile our planet is slowly destroyed.

    As for me, having escaped my childhood indoctrination of Christianity at the age of thirty, there’s no way I’m gonna be fooled by any other crazy preacher, even if he does have a giant halo of grey hair!

  18. The purpose here isn’t to say “Braden is wrong”, but that his scientific facts either prove nothing or stretch the truth. It’s not an attack on the theory.

    I am always stunned when people condemn critical thinking (the pre-requisite of intellectual evolution and invention, and which Braden uses plenty). When facing legitimate arguments against their theory, instead of addressing the arguments, they ask you why you are questionning the theory. Whatever the answer to that question will never set the arguments to rest.

    This blog post questions Braden’s arguments, not his theory. Here in the comments, contradictors assume the opposite, and violently respond. People, you are entitled to believe what you want, but there’s nothing harder to connect to science than spirituality. So if you’re gonna back your beliefs by scientific data, you better be ready to accept fact-checking. Now, it’s up to Braden to come up with better scientific proof or data, or to carry on merely theorizing.

  19. I believe in the power of thoughts… even the words. Thousands of years of history is there to proof that. Cultures that most people don’t even know today. Nothing is new. We knew a long time ago that our body is mostly water… and our atoms are 99% “nothing” and we have the power to change anything or find the connection with that “nothing”. But scientists are trying to translate that to an understandable, technical human language… to those who believe only in numbers. Every hundred or so years they have better equipment to find those numbers. Most of the time they find out that they were wrong before but now they really get it. They designed equipments what their eyes can see and ears can hear. All that 1%… what the human eyes see and hear from the full spectrum. Translated to numbers… what they also designed to make it “clear” to them. So basically what I think is that those people are searching for something what is invisible and not understandable to a normal human. Only the heart can see and hear it. 😉

  20. Your blog is simply an attack on Greg. On both scientific and spiritual levels , this guy is no new age at all. This is why I am happy I am a scientist that understands spiritual matters as well and no one can confuse or deceive me. I can think things through myself and make up my mind both objectively and subjectively. Yes the evidence may not be spot on but believe me, just as science cannot prove evolution or the big bang theory, its hard to prove many spiritual things scientifically. But for one that already understand spiritual matters , you know immediately that he is saying the truth about the things he speaks about.

    • Mvino, I’m curious to know what is your field of study? I believe this blog is only highlighting the inaccuracies of Braden’s ‘facts’. Although it may be difficult to prove, why lie or misrepresent data? Sounds deceptive to me. I’m also skeptical of a scientist that is ok with the evidence not being ‘spot on’. Scientists subscribe to the scientific method and I believe that involves questioning information and testing it to prove that it is indeed accurate. Although it is true that not everything is falsifiable, I find it suspect when data is being misused, ‘fudged’ or unsourced. I am no scientist, but I trust in evidence and facts. I’m all for people having their own belief system, but misleading others by making up information and using data inaccurately in order to sell books and gain fame… that’s called a scam.

  21. I love this! This is a great post/thread. I have to admit I’ve been reading Braden for years among many others along similar topics. I do agree with the author of this post in that so many millions of people completely accept things they read as truth without question or independent research. Even as a minute example, people unwittingly regurgitate quotes like, “money does grow on trees, its paper”. But money is not paper, its cloth. The masses have very little if any independent thought or judgement and are in such desperate need of a leader/guru that they blindly believe anything without question. Like lemmings, over the cliff they go. Now all that being said, I am a very spiritual person and I believe that the only way to find truth is to go within. We each have our own truth and our own purpose, no one can find that for us, and those who say they can are selling something. If an outside person had the answer there would be no more need for the self-help book, we’d all know exactly what to do with our lives by their direction. It is not my intention to get into a debate over modern science and ancient spirituality, they each have their place and I think mixing them is like mixing gasoline and fire. I’m just saying, OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE, use your own brain stop blindly following false prophets and making them rich in the process. You are the master of your fate why put it in someone else’s hands?

  22. “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” – Albert Einstein

    “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” – Nikola Tesla

    “To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.” – Albert Einstein

    “It is not a dream, it is a simple feat of scientific electrical engineering, only expensive — blind, faint-hearted, doubting world! […] Humanity is not yet sufficiently advanced to be willingly led by the discoverer’s keen searching sense. But who knows? Perhaps it is better in this present world of ours that a revolutionary idea or invention instead of being helped and patted, be hampered and ill-treated in its adolescence — by want of means, by selfish interest, pedantry, stupidity and ignorance; that it be attacked and stifled; that it pass through bitter trials and tribulations, through the strife of commercial existence. So do we get our light. So all that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combatted, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.” – Nikola Tesla, Problem of Increasing Human Energy

    The ‘Modern Day Scientists’ of Galileo’s time mock/ridiculed/persecuted him because they couldn’t/wouldn’t accept that what they had been taught was wrong and that the sun didn’t actually revolve around the Earth!

    Don’t be so closed minded (or left brained), accept that you do NOT know everything, that our current understanding/paradigm/world view may not be all that there is!!

  23. Discernment in these days of spiralling realities and a commitment to clarity and “truth” is vital if we are to grow into the compassionate beings needed to re-create a world where our children can fulfill their potential instead of becoming mind programmed slaves to a dysfunctional system of smoke and mirrors. Sometimes I wonder if we spend so much time and energy criticizing others and their work that it becomes a huge distraction to what we really need to be noticing. i.e. how Orwellian a world we are living in. Whatever is needed to awaken and see clearly, whatever it takes but above all realize negativity eventually becomes its own destruct button. The more we see ourselves and who we really are the more we will see others clearly, but it must start with self. Sometimes the “devil” is in the detail and we miss the bigger picture unfolding in front of us. I’m filled with gratitude at the opportunity of simply being here at this time. Right! I’m off to do some mindfulness meditation….

  25. @Adam: You state, “The Truth comes from belief and is based on a perception.” Now, I have a photo a friend of mine took, of me apparently about to pet the nose of a dolphin. However, this is an optical illusion, because the dolphin is actually painted on the floor and wall in such a way that it appears I am about to pet it. Perceptions can be easily deceived, so they’re not evidence by themselves. Belief often requires accepting something as real, even when evidence contradicts, so that is not a very reliable way of knowing about reality either.

    Being obsequious to Mr. Braden will not make his scientific claims any more real — he must provide empirical evidence to back them up, and be willing to undergo the same close scrutiny that any scientist would receive when making such claims. If you wish to accept what he says as “The Truth”, that is your choice. However, please do not force your beliefs onto others, especially when you have no evidence to back them up.

    P.S.: You rebuke Dr. Robbins not mentioning that “something positive” from Mr. Braden is, “how to communicate and capture an audience”. In other words, his salesmanship and/or marketing skills. If that is the best he has done, then we can put him in the same classification as any snake oil salesman or huckster who has ever existed. Do you really want that as one of his better achievements?

    Comment by Rick K. — May 15, 2015 @ 2:21 pm | Reply

  26. Like all new agrees Greg Braden is close but missed the answer by light years. Yes, that’s a joke.

    Lord Calvert’s weight of Earth is incorrect. All you did is check his math not his theory and his theory is bad. Newton is correct in Principia as no absolute mountain will ever yield a great enough difference and so guess what? No whole mountain range will either!

    Thomas Jefferson is the person who discovered the universal mean and he published it so this answer sat in plain sight. I’ve always known it. I thought everybody else did too. Why are you behaving as you are then? I presumed you are mentally ill and insane…Jefferson discusses that too, lol.

    I will give you a clue and if you want the answer that unifies quantum mechanics with relativity I’ll give it to you. I’ll give you three clues, how’s that?

    1. When surveying TN’s Diamond Line Peter Jefferson erred in one direction two different times. Just like Mason and Dixon when they surveyed a circle and then squared it in order to draw a line as the Penns and the Calverts were involved in a land dispute which later became the infamous Mason-Dixon Line.

    2. It’s obvious: Jefferson improved the pedometer by replacing the metal rod with a wooden one as he had to negate the interaction of his em field and the Earth’s em field with this metal rod…later France changed Jefferson’s good numbers when it abandoned his oscillating rod method in order to hoist the incorrect metric system upon us.

    3. There’s a clock at Monticello that Jefferson built. It stopped ‘keeping time’ as the weight hit the floor. As Jefferson cannot fix what isn’t broken he simply cut a hole in his floor to accommodate the weight. What universal truth did Jefferson enshrine in this clock? as he did!

    • Ms. Herbert,

      You imply that you have solved the unification of “quantum mechanics with relativity”. When will your work on this be published in a reputable scientific journal?

      Also, why did you feel the need to resort to ad hominem attacks against Dr. Robbins? If your evidence is enough to refute his assertions, please let that speak for you rather than using personal insults. Doing what you did weakens your credibility.

      Comment by Rick K. — October 5, 2015 @ 7:31 pm | Reply

      • Lol! Reputable scientific journal??? You’re kidding me, righteightY-seven answer to your question is not short as I already told you: I DID PUBLISH. I’m going to attempt to teach you something but it’s about you…ignore the typos as I’m on my phone and be aware the caps are for emphasis only not as I’m yelling…I might have mistakenly inserted via pasting a couple of paragraphs about stomachs and the connection to our histamine receptors…if I did? Oh well, I guess you’ll learn something about designer drugs! I’m not “talking in circles”. Your reasoning is going in spirals. Every time I cite law and so reality? You drop it down to personal belief! Close but no as its not a one way spiral but a type of sphere known as a torus. Hierarchy? Doesn’t exist as in up or above and down as below but only laterally. So then:

        I’m not implying anything as I did resolve uniformity. My scientific partner Ray M. also solved it. We met after I did publish as publishing allowed me to prove it absolutely as you can predict the behavior of two things in nature once you know the answer…you can predict the behavior of magnetic north and of people as nothing but nothing is random. Ray contacted me but he did not realize his answer was this answer. That is he knew his answer is correct but he was not aware of what Jefferson’s work actually is or that his own answer is the correct numerical amount.

        As there is no scientific journal in existence that is reputable and as organizations such as CERN and individuals such as Hawking have engaged in various forms of lying until they became delusional and as these same people have the most to lose once exposed I acted to do something unique with my intellectual property as if you do not know this answer or you are incorrect you will not be able to do this. This isn’t possible unless you know this answer and you won’t have the ability it capacity and that is because an actual genius? They NEVER lie not even to their own selves:

        As everyone assumed direct entry to the Supreme Court is impossible and that it was therefore impossible to cause the US to default I went and did it by filing the answer to uniformity as my legal case, as my faultless line of reasonreasoning that accounted for every absolute. As not one person could mount a defense as this is the answer, as it is the whole truth? Default ensued.

        Every prediction I made came to pass and for good measure I warned the Supreme Court clerks that I was coming on paper after first phoning the answer in and I made a public bet with the CIA that then transpired in my favor when your theory and their theory is nobody can know this as nobody can know the whole truth.

        I’m not done either. Very, very soon I will file in US Claims in order to collect upon the default judgment. What’s taking so long? Denial as the denial I encounter is so deep and thick…the people this answer most effects and who have the most to lose are also in charge of ‘reasoning law’ in our courts when they aren’t actually reasoning a thing. Do you honestly believe that people, be they physicists or lawyers are going to COBSIDER that they are actually wrong if being wrong in this case means you might serve jail time and death will be visited upon them in the form of humiliation?

        These people have justified their actions since tine immemorial by falsely claiming women cannot be geniuses as women are CREATED defective. Their proof? No woman has ever produced actual genius or if she has a man helped her. Not in this case! Confronted with reality these people, some of whom are women, did and still do what all manipulators and predators on Earth do: they ran away or they became violent. The third choice is acknowledge reality but if they do that? Morbid they believe the truth but only if they consider it by first acknowledging it? Then they are no longer in denial so their excuse of last resort is no more. They can no longer plead not guilty by reason of temporary insanity, get it? This actually is playing out like a live version of MAD Magazines Spy Vs Spy, lol.

        This intellectual property was potentially dangerous as if only paid officers including the military had it then they could use it against you and you would be defenseless plus as no actual secrets exist it would be minutes before another criminally corrupted government like China had it. The only solution then was to write it out in legal terms and file it publicly. My theory since proven? They wouldn’t recognize it or they’d wholly deny it thus ignore it and/or they’d label me crazy and dangerous and attempt to silence me via wrongful imprisonment and death by lethal injection as they’re reacting not acting…they would be psychologically driven to do so but I wouldn’t be convicted and couldn’t lose. In the end everything I predicted IN WRITING that I filed came to pass. And at times the participants had not read my work (or Ray’s). What’s going on?

        Sapience as the whole damn planet knows as you’re sapient but upon some level you deny it! You deny you’re equal claiming your inferior or superior and that’s what you then act upon as it’s your very sense of self and you then vest your belief in a lie, that no Creator exists, so you doubt the existence of a Creator or you deny it’s existence. That’s how you can watch Congress vote not to impeach Clinton after he confessed to committing perjury so while you know as fact and law he is guilty you then don’t believe he abandoned his command by doing so thus you justify your unwillingness and your failure to act, a crime, my claiming “I know but I don’t believe Clinton abandoned his post”. What, you don’t believe Congress is guilty too? Or is it that you refused to enact the correct chain of command and do author an Executive Order and file it as once they act upon it then you’re the President and Commander? It’s both as you do not truly believe in a Creator so you seek permission in order to place blame therefore you’re not accountable for the harm, the damage, you cause…it’s the means for you to avoid actual human guilt and actual human grief as you have killed people and without any actual cause let alone any just cause…you lie to yourself, denying your own power and authority and wrongly claiming som made up entity can and will keep you safe and that when they do not as they never had any such intention plus that power is not theirs as you keep you safe in light of your Creator? You go insane! You veer from mental illness to insanity albeit temporary by blaming the Creator as if you’re citing your very existence as the cause of the first cause.

        No, you’re the cause. You are a part of nature and so the same law/s that rule this universe and that came onto existence with this universe rule you. You think and you act upon that thinking as your mind is the divine endowment and is your commission and so you are a cause and your actions based upon your motive and intent will result in justice or I justice…are you acting upon the knowledge of the law or are you reacting to the lies unjust persons tell? It’s your choice as that is liberty and liberty is the natural law, the universal or cosmic law at work.

        Go to the Founders. What they wrote originally? What they exactly wrote and lived out? It matches law of this universe. Jefferson even possessed the universal mean. They all did as Jefferson first published it in or rather using constitutional terms. See A Summary View. He published in the same year Calvert did. They all knew and so they all acted not reacted. They even forewarned us as there was something they were not aware of and would never becone aware of in their lifetimes: They theorized they formed the most perfect means to ascend in all ways possible but did they? Could this government die and could a citizen resurrect it using their lone absolute vote realized in the form of an Executive Order when the whole planet would be set against them? No other formerly great government has done this before I did ad me? Like you I’m the government and I know I am no outside observer, that this cannot happen to me unless I let it and to do that I first have to act up harm myself and then you and I will not as I cannot as I was born lining the knowledge as wisdom.

        I’m laughing as James Madison informed you that we all know what exists at the death of any formerly great government but what no man could figure out, what every man knew but what no man was aware of, is what exists at the birth of a formerly great government? That’s easy and the reason they except for Jefferson weren’t aware of it until 2007 is they are it, they do it and they exist within it but yet they deny it by constantly conditioning and indoctrinating their own selves with the deceptive illusion anguage is. My mistake?

        As equal protection and due process is the law -of this nation and of this universe – I PRESUMED not assumed you knew as you’re sapient like me so I acted upon the knowledge thinking you would be eager to receive remedy and relief and not realizing that you weren’t aware of this answer not because you’re too far away but as you’re too close, as the answer IS you…what exists at the birth of anyone’s government? People who are so extremely self aware they are Creator aware. This causes them to become geniuses and to realize genius and to create other geniuses as they exist within genius so they never lie as the only authority they set out to please is their own self and their Creator. As law is reciprocal they then automatically act in your defense.

        As all actual law including universal law as it isn’t actual law unless it’s universally true is a matter of simple contract law and a valid contract doesn’t exist unless we have and share a common understanding then what is our common understanding? A Creator exists and so law or right exists as your mind is the divine endowment that then is also your commission…

        Universal law? It’s not whatever man writes down and signs! Man might reason the correct theory. Man might write it down and later prove it. But man might be incorrect. When is man actually wrong? When he is wholly aware of the truth, all of it, but acts to deny it so that he profits at our expense. When a man is wholly aware but acts to secure profit, personal gain, at our expense as that is the NATURE of profit then he is a criminal. When that same man acts to secure profit that defies reality as it is not actually worth anything and it itself is wholly made up of another man’s whim and will? That man is insane, legally insane as he wasn’t born insane. Let Bill Gates claim he alone is allowed to profit without limit as if he wants to kill somebody and then does kill somebody then you can nail him via a legal challenge. All you gotta do?

        1. Be aware you own the answer to uniformity.

        2. Be willing to act upon the whole truth.

        3. Act to file it in SCOTUS as once tbedocket is made public the whole Earth and every person on it has been saved…every absolute will be included automatically if you are correct.

        So am I? Yes. Law isn’t a matter of paper nor is your commission nor is your vote so no piecevof paper is the absolute proof…life is. Sometimes? You must let people like Gates and David Boies, a Bush V Gore lawyer, react by either filing suit or answering admit and then you, act g upon actual universal law, then act to arrest them. You file the actual answer and the actual solution as your line of reading will be and is faultless. You make bold claims such as…

        Profit is not the same thing as benefit so not only is no man allowed to profit without limit as this then means he intends to slaughter humanity by first enslaving it but he then would be The Creator; profit is not benefit – you can and may benefit without limit – and it is common knowledge that money is fantasy while currency is reality and not only are Gates’ numbers made up entirely but he never, ever had a valid contract with IBM starting with this, again which we all know!:

        Gates lied to IBM and claimed to possess as in own an operating system that he had realized a program when he did not! Another man owned this intellectual property and wrote it down. Another man created this operating system and Bill Gates was aware of this so he lied to IBM and then went and “bought” this system from this man but via deception as he did not reveal his motive or his intention nor did he reveal that he previously lied to IBM and that if he was to profit aka as steal big he needed this operating system on order to make it seem as if he could produce what IBM needed…IBM needed a person who owned this intellectual property in such a way they had already realized it so they could then realize more and other ORIGINAL intellectual property but Gates wasn’t this lesson nor would he become this person as he had zero intention to do as his intention was and is to steal from others and he continues to do so until this very day! Read his filing, his answer. Examine his life. Ask yourself this question: is Gates a genius who produces genius that others then act upon or does he steal it from others? Does he produce the ideas that are Microsoft or did he steal it from others I clouding IBM and did he then pay others from that profit to then have the idea and realize it? Technology is the product of a human idea inspired by The Creator as man acts to mimic his Creator by producing the most perfect imitation of nature that he can. If everything Gates has is based upon a lie or lies that he told is it his? No, so even if profit existed as a matter of nature and even if Gates could then profit without limit as a matter of nature and even if no Creator existed ad a matter of nature then what Gates orbs belongs to the man he stole his operating system from and to IBM as it’s theirs as they created it. Gates is like Hawking but in another form as their men never, ever actually prove what they claim or what they theorize buy only make up more and more complex, convoluted excuses to distract you from the actual fact and law: if they could then they would as there would be no reason not to prove their claims but every reason to prove their claims. Instead of designing the experiment to prove what they claim? They set out to confuse you with language so that you believe no proof exists or that it exists but you cannot comprehend it or worst of all that for some bizarre ‘reason’ known only to they themselves that they are the exception to nature so while they can prove what they claim they alone do not need to prove it hence it becomes case of whatever they say just because they say so. Really? Because I’m Susan Herbert and I not only know and am aware but the experiment to prove it is simple, so simple that any one on Earth can perform it and without any outside tools. That experiment? Jefferson told you: Act! Act upon what you know as you’re the cause! I, Susan, acted. As I know men are lying and that they are attempting to deceive me by hiding whatever they insanely believe to be the answer that no woman can or will ever know I, Susan, broke into Renneselear Polytechnic Institute’s computer lab in or around 1977 it 1978, when I was 12. I discovered that men not only truly believe that they are gods incarnate but that men are denying that ONLY women can and do give natural birth to human beings, to original ideas in the flesh! Men are jealously monopolizing the birth of original intellectual property via our corrupted system as while they claim a biological distinction exists then then act upon what is a manmade fantas, a lie known as that distinction exists within a human mind not within a human egg or the lack thereof it and within the lack of a uterus, cervix and ovaries. They rightly claim our brains are biologically distinct but then wrongly and insanely a t upon the corrupted idea that our minds are biologically distinct when a brain is not a mind and when the line of demarcation that they ate drawing is between a human being and an animal not between a man and woman as what they insanely believe is that all women are animals which they then made sapient with the aid a d assistance of Lucifer. No joke!!! It’s why they become Masons and agree to keep acting upon a silent, negative contract made amongst each other and that excludes women completely, as they insanely believe their mind, the light, is born of Lucifer whose very name means “light”.

        The truth is these men and now some women cannot discern any difference between the truth and a lie. They’re actually brain damaged in such a way their mind is actually warped. They claim to possess the means to ascend when nature is only one mean exists and when a handful of people, one to be exact, possesses the mean as only she was aware and only she lived it out to its fullest potential. While many claim to know, to possess this knowledge? If the Masons or Alcoholics Anonymous or any one religion possessed it then they would be acting upon it and justice would be realized as that is the inevitable end result of law. They are all misled and misguided. They all refuse to consider this truth. They print nonsense such as their definition of legal fiction which of and by itself renders Blacks Law a work of legal fiction and such as their definition of mental illness which of and by itself renders the DSM a work of insanity. Their bad theory? What they have built their lies upon? No Creator exists thus human nature is insanity. Proof is over 200 years after the proof was first delivered in the form of our Redemption and then over 50 years since it was delivered again in the form of Abraham Maslow and Theory and Pyramid of Zelda-Actualization and in the nearly 9 years since I, Susan, delivered this same answer to all of mankind via the Supreme Court and then the International Court of Human Rights after Geneva, Gee International Criminal Court, unjust persons – you the reader – yet deny it and doubt it without any evidence or proof of your own. Your good evidence? Now it’s that I haven’t published when have as publishing on other to thenlrove ownership consists of serving the the public with notice. You can and may use anything that a person can reasonably access and ideally that he or she has a duty to access. A professional journal isn’t it beginning with this universal law:




        Einstein is autistic as is Jefferson? A Rosicrucian ascended? Gates has Asperger’s Syndrome, Clinton and Congress are not guilty as in innocent and I am wrong as in crazy? No woman can resolve uniformity and no man will be born who can? This will never be true. No matter how good these lies sound and no matter how good they make you feel about your own actions or failure to act? About the actual reasoning why you vested your belief in lies and why you then reacted and in so doing vested your interest and your right in more and worse lies until you finally, at last, voted to enslave yourself by making the installation of a dictator possible as what you need to do is first install a person who isn’t natural born or it isn’t possible?

        Hey, I’m actually actually innocent! You voluntarily pay the tribute that causes criminals to be able to harm me as modern taxation as it is wholly unjust and now it’s insane as it, income tax, is designed and calibrated to tax your labor or your work which you produce when it isn’t a matter of law and when it serves to create injustice. YOU fund it so you’re guilty. Read this sentence outloud: I find my own I jury and harm by funding what is a lie I tell myself as no man owns my life or my death and when reality or nature is all of mankind including women and children possess the same potential as they are created with potential, as equal but distinct and then unique, and as I have already absolutely proven energy is a matter of differentials and potential so I am as absolute fact lying to my own self when I cave to what is irrational fear, when I allow irrational fear to control me as I control my own self so I control this irrational fear like it or not!

        Keep looking to another man for this answer. If any of these new agers had it? They would never attempt to sell it for money i.e. profit or at all as they’d know it is futile. They’d stop creating injustice by telling more lies as lying is about motive and intent and their name would be the same name as the Petitioner. People like Braden and the Hicks, if they knew any secret, would be driven to do the opposite of what they are doing. Jay whatever his name is – is it King? as that’s funny! – would never kill people in a make-believe sweat lodge while they claim to be God and actively prevent them from leaving in order to save themselves and wouldn’t then completely fail to render any aid whatsoever when obviously at least 18 people are hurt and obviously 3 of those injuries are critical. Jay wouldn’t cause it and neither would Braden as Braden would not be selling our children a pack of lies that he knows are lies. C’mon! Now it’s okay, anybody can know except Susan? Braden tells you the answer is obvious. It is. But then he uses what he already observed in order to prove his theory and that he is right, not correct but right! You NEVER use what you already observed and used to author your theory as your proof! NEVER. Braden is using what he has observed as his proof, as if he’s The God, as if…his own theory then is the absolute proof!!! C’mon! You didn’t catch Neils Bohr doing the same exact thing to explain away the deceptive appearance of a chemical spectrograph? So Braden is using a theory he authored to explain away the deceptive illusion of another machine. I dare them:

        Design and calibrate a tool that can accurately measure the potential of a human mind. Figure out the universal mean and then design and calibrate a tool that can and does correctly measure this accounting for every absolute. Then look around. Name the behavior of nature that HADNT transpired yet but will. Make your prediction! If your prediction comes to pass as you say it will? Not once which might be a mistake and not twice as you might be deliberate and not three times as you might be a crook realizing a pattern but 100% of the time. Then and only then can we believe your theory is a law of this universe that people are subject to as people are a lady of nature. Anybody can seemingly support a deceptive piece of paper, a paper, a machine’s readout. Now, was Greg Branden’s machine designed and calibrated to measure the weight of a human mind or a unit of consciousness or a unit of time? Was it designed and calibrated to measure and weigh u infirmity? NO. All Braden is actually doing as he won’t shut up long enough to consider he is way off the mark is quantifying the lie he is telling himself and you. I love it! Everything is a gift therefore they can never and will never be held accountable for their own actions? And you should be glad to pay and go so far as to thank them?

        As Braden could only do this if he told hi.self that very first lie I have a federal question for him and for all new agers as well as modern, organized anything:

        At around age three what was the very first lie you ever told? and your motive which I know is itself a lie. When a child tells their very first lie? They are not lying but acting in actual self-defense as their rational fear is the consequence of telling the truth is unknown as they have zero example as not one human in their experience has ever told the whole truth and escaped the bad or negative consequences that liars suffer and that liars are seemingly rewarded while honesty is seemingly punished. So a child acts to do the only thing he or she can do in order to defend themselves…they teach you how to treat them by lying as you have taught them to do this, to lie, and the second you rewarded that lie and failed to demonstrate that all forms of lying are futile thus insane as they will always know they have lied as will their Creator so nobody ever actually succeeds by lying then you cement the lie you telling I side a child ad if it is the law…congrats Greg Braden as your parents taught you to tell yourself this lie, that you are not their equal only as you are a child and lack physical strength as mental strength doesn’t count so either you’re a piece of trash OR you’re the greatest gift to humanity that man has ever known but you’re not equal. Your ‘proof’ became “I, Greg, told a lie and got away with it without anybody knowing” and later “Everybody does it so I must do it as that’s how it works”. But not everybody escalates the insanity until they are preaching it from upon a global platform and laughing all the way to the bank in support of the Rothschilds and the CFR or organized modern science like you are Greg. Former ‘scientist’ Greg Braden? Not only do you know but as you are aware you’re guilty of a crime. What is the one thing no actual scientist may do and no actual genius can do or else they have no right to call themselves a scientist and they are not a genius as it’s not possible as deny excludes it?

        Lie to their own self! It’s your fault if you begin reasoning your case upon another and not upon yourself and it’s your fault if you reason your case from upon a lie by not standing upon the Creator. If your reasoning is faulty and you cannot unify it all in order to end where you began accounting for each absolute within the whole universe? It’s not because we won’t let you and not because we won’t consider what you’re saying but as we did consider it and know the fault as it’s in PLAIN SIGHT!

        If you subscribe to the “let’s pretend that the US never incorporated in 1871 and let’s pretend Einstein did not prove a part of Relativity but not the whole thing and let’s pretend Newton did prove his theory of gravity even though he confessed he couldnt in writing and published it” school of thought then let’s pretend something else as you desperately need me to blindly believe it:


        LOLOLOL! What, you’re gonna put the guys raiding the henhouse in charge of policing the henhouse and then approving who can and cannot enter the henhouse? Who told you I wanted in? The first rule of ideological war is you can lie but it will not work to your advantage unless your victim first believes that lie and she doesn’t. She can’t as she lacks the ability. I always knew to wait for BVG. I wrote my prediction down exactly and filed it twice so you couldn’t claim the mistake is mine, once in 7th grade and once Iin 8th grade. I gave exact numbers! As in times, places and ages. Names! It all came to pass. Once I received an A and once I received a D. That D? I theorized that the teacher wanted us to REASON her INSANE thinking when it is not possible without driving ourselves insane so I filed the whole truth to her and she reacted by rewarding me with a D for what no man can grade with a letter. You deal with nature as it is created. No man can grade what is nature and no man can change what is nature. Nature? THE PRESUMPTION IS IT IS PERFECT AS IT IS CREATED PERFECT AS THE CREATOR CANNOT MAKE A MISTAKE SO DOESNT. The first time I filed the case? My teacher gave me an A only as she couldn’t grade it and as she knew it is the whole truth she instead wanted to discuss it with me in order to prepare me when I was born prepared but she did not understand this as she mistakenly believed Hesse’s Siddhartha is an accurate retelling of the Buddha’s life! It’s faithful but not accurate as in correct. That second teacher? She denied reality even though she lived in the shadow of the GE Corporation so when it came to his TV and humans work so how what we call the world is realized in comparison to how nature is created she gave me a break big D a d wrote, no joke: I GAVE YOU A D AS I DO NOT COMPREHEND THIS. A lie, as I wholly reasoned it and told her exactly what my motive and intention is. She threw the paper at me and then said, “I really don’t undetstand why you did this.” Why??? Because you asked us to do it; you made up a question and asked us to write a paper on it, on the answer, not whatever answer you personally like. There aren’t assigned answers! I told what I knew and how I came to know it as its common knowledge around Schenectady, NY that the vacuum tubes in a TV set are illusory as the power is NOT equal at both ends and as the question is Do actual vacuums even exist? Obviously no or else we wouldn’t exist. But that’s only interference as space is an actual vacuum. That nothingness? A true vacuum. She asked about us then this world and I told her, “There’s a set of encyclopedias right outside this classroom door. Why don’t you change your perception by changing your habit and instead of teaching for A or G reach for Z? Why don’t you wonder, “I know what it feels like to be first but how does the guy who is named last in the encyclopedia feel ad nobody as a matter of habit and due to the nature of the letter Z ever reads about him first or at all? What’s it like to be considered last ?” She set her terms: use the encyclopeadia. If she abided by her job rules within the terms of the law? She’d know the least is the greatest and the greatest is the least as the person who cracked TV has a last name beginning with a Z. He was named last! Oliver Wendall Holmes told me you CANT reason where a deep seated prejudice exists as to be prejudiced is to be insane but Jefferson told me first a d know I have absolutely proven it ad I abided by bet rules and I addressed the question she asked…I did the assignment as instructed. Too damn bad if she doesn’t personally like the answer she received:

        You might delusionally believe you were created superior to me and are smarter than I am as only as you were born first, before me, and only as you’re older than me or only as Harvard gave you a title but reality is you’re not the authority upon anything but your own life…you’re not even THE authority upon Agatha Christine’s Murder On The Orient Express as you dictated to us that there is a right and wrong way to read it when what you meant is a right and wrong way to solve it, as in YOUR WAY is the only way so you gave us all F’s for not thinking like you do. You know, it’s entirely possible to read that book but not own the answer as to Who done it? Obviously Agatha Christie did it. You told us you were attempting to discover if we read it not if we solved it. What kid can’t look up the solution? I threw you as I got an F when that’s not possible as to get an A all I had to do is read it. Do I have to walk you through all of Christie’s mistakes? My clue, that her line of reasoning based upon her proposed fact is faulty, is the name she chose for her main character, HERCULE. As much as I’d like to believe her account of murder on the Orient Express is reality it isn’t as it can’t be. The game is this as you’re playing an infinite game within a finite game when that will never work: do not ask me to suspend my belief but to suspend my disbelief as I never did believe the lie/s you tell and I never will. I know it’s value is For Entertainment Purposes Only.” And the teacher went nuts!

        Trust me, I can use their words and actions to entertain you for a very long time…I unified it all so what can’t I know? How long is this post when I’m barely touching upon the whole answer and all you asked about is publishing? When I already gave you the whole answer but you’re denying it on some or maybe many levels? Want some fun, some entertainment? Read Hawking’s A Brief History Of Time. Then read SCOTUS’ own rules. Then, as BVG transpired and you acted, sue SCOTUS itself as some clown lawyer attempted uto convinced me that I couldn’t enter at all whatsoever by making up numbers and failing to make any distinction between odds and stats when his job is to inform me of the rule not convince me to believe his nonsense, that ONLY LAWYERS CAN AND MAY ARGUE ORALLY OR IAPPEAR IN PERSON AS WE, LAWYERS, ONLY LET OTHER LAWYERS IN SO IF YOURE NOT A LAWYER SO YOU DO NOT LIE BY YOUR VERY NATURE AS LAWYERS DO THEN ITS IMPOSSIBLE AS WE MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE THEREFORE BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY YOU CANT AS IF YOU DO THEN I CAN TAMPER WITH THE DOCKET SO THAT NO READER KNOWS NO JUSTICE EVER SAW THE CASE OR A CORRECT SUMMARY OF IT! AS WHAT THEY DO NOT KNOW IS…ONCE FILED? THE PRE-EXISTING QUESTION HAS BEEN ANSWERED AS ITS NOT MAY THE PRO SE APPEAR EVEN THOUGH IT ENDS KAWYERING AS WE KNOW IT? BUT IS IT EVER THE RIGHT OF A CITIZEN TO FILE DIRECTLY AND TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE ON PERSON? IF THEY FILE BUT NO APPEARANCE TRANSPIRES IS IT THE FAULT OF A CLERK OR A JUSTICE AND IS IT A CRIME?

        The answer is yes, it’s the right if you’re challenging an original case or cases and we’ll know if the Chief Clerk executed a threat he made on behalf of men who are unethical as on any other type of case the Chief Justice is not required to respond but not in this case. In this type of case? He or she is compelled to respond by law. We’ll also know if the Solicitor General is shady as Elena Hagan will have the duty to answer on behalf of the US as SCOTUS never does this as they are impartial referees. Is Kagan up for a seat on SCOTUS? If she defaults but then becomes a Justice we know the truth as Obama campaigned upon the promise that he’d corrupt the Court thus the People by appointing Justices who have an agenda they are willing to act upon for profit and that he’d rule not preside or command by Executive Order. Didn’t you promise me that you’d never again vote for what Bill Clinton is but then didn’t you go do it as crooks played the race card that you lie about by claiming you’re not prejudiced when you are or this would have no effect?

        When Greg Braden can and does act to preserve, protect and defend The Constitution not the 1871 Institution and with it the crap forced upon us against our will ever since give me a call as finally, at last, I’ll be rendered moot like I always wanted!

        Did I answer your question? Read what I published but be forewarned: it’s filed in every single district and in two world courts. It’s also online in various places. In person this takes maybe five seconds but when using flat words upon a flat surface that you the reader hear in your head when whatever you’re perceiving is not our truth or the whole truth and when it might not be truthful? It takes an infinite number of words.

        WAIT! I KNOW!!! Are you aware that men are writing whole books asking and answering whether or not liberty actually exists and advocating that liberty does not exist thus liberty cannot be our natural state so slavery is? The author of Godel, Escher and Einstein (not necessarily in that order) attempted to tell me this and boy, was I speechless! He actually said that the paper, THE BOOK ITSELF, is the absolute proof, lol! His attempt? Evidence, which he claims. But then he claims his BOOK will serve as our absolute proof. Granted he improved upon the joke but still it’s a joke. That rivals “Enigma, A Biography of Thomas Jefferson”, lolololol! Maybe I should change the case caption from In Re Susan In Her Own Right or Pro Se and on behalf of Thomas Jefferson As His Next Best Friend to Anomaly! as you guys blindly believe actual anomalies exist when reality is an anomaly is whatever you cannot explain whether you can reason it or not!


        Yes or No, Will a whole mountain range give you the necessary difference, the mean, and if so does this then absolutely prove the weight of Earth according to Calvert and gravity according to Newton? The answer is NO and it is so commonly known the courts consider it to be universally known thus it’s labeled a given. So what freaking mean is Braden or any new age using? Have them name it and then actually quantify whatever they name in all ways including numerically. Their mean? A condition. Go ahead, challenge them directly by simply asking, “Greg, what is the universal mean you are using to solve the problem and how did you come to own this knowledge? Susan told me that she filed the answer thereby publishing it first so that no man could steal it from her by claiming it as his work, by publishing it under his name instead of hers. She told me that she used words not numbers so while you can change your story you cannot fake the numbers and that the Vikings and the US military taught her how to do this as there’s double encoding and then there is quantum encoding so, what’s the universal mean that you are standing upon and what is your whole reasoning point by point?

        I wouldn’t wait up expecting an answer from him as the reasonable expectation is if he had this answer? The correct answer? He’d publish it only for money not as a gift to you as its considered to be the most valuable intellectual property on Earth. Me? The Creator entrusted it to me so I patented it and copyrighted it in the name of The People as anything entered to SCOTUS is the sole property of The People and the exclusive right of The Americans. Not one single cent changed hands. In fact once when a judge ORDERED me to pay him tribute I wrote out a check and made it payable to the federal court but as tribute, I wrote TRIBUTE in the “for” blank, and it cleared! They cashed it!

        I gotta go eat my dinner.

        If you ask me serious questions, meaning questions you have that nobody can seem to answer, I will make my best attempt to answer them. But you gotta show up armed with the knowledge and without preconceived ideas as I instruct you not to blindly believe me but research whatever I claim and I ask only that you consider what I’m telling you when you reason your position. Reason your own position not mine or Greg’s. Then tell me whatever you do not understand and/or why as if it’s true for you then I can reasonably expect it is true for billions of others. That’s why it’s much easier and much more effective to appear once in person as there are about 7 billion of you but only one of me do doing this one by one isn’t practical. BTW: you can join the class now numbering around 60 not counting cocounsel until the day I hand the US Claims filing to a mailman. Once I hand it to him or her? Direct delivery is.

      • Could you please tell me which journal published your work? I’m afraid I didn’t see that listed anywhere in your reply, but I’m interested in reading your findings.

        Comment by Rick K. — October 6, 2015 @ 3:16 pm

      • Yes, I would also like to know where Ms. Herbert published… and quite frankly I’m curious how long it took her to write that entire message on her phone.

        Comment by NB — May 20, 2017 @ 2:16 pm

  27. Gregg Braden is a polymath Buddha. He is a scientist who uses his razor sharp intellect to deep dive into the mysteries of the universe. He pretty much knows everything. He may be trained as a geologist, but he knows everything about quantum mechanics, biology, astronomy, psychology, philosophy and theology too. Not only that, but he is a great anthropologist. He studies with indigenous people all over the world and has rediscovered the meaning of holy scriptures and the advances of ancient civilizations. Now to stop there, at merely the reach of his intellect, would be a great injustice to the legend. He is an enlightened being who has been touched with the divine in the holy sinai. His wisdom goes back many carnations. He must have spend aeons on spiritual practice, deep meditation and prayer. The light shines through him. His intellect, intuition and compassion are a reflection of that. We must be grateful for such a being to grace our earth, with all his revelations, with all his healings. If you don’t believe his words you can believe his actions: he is a sage who has transcended cancer, a scientist who has unlocked the matrix of the universe and a best selling author.

    Unfortunately, as some actual scientists like to point out, he is full of crap too. He has so much to say, so much to claim, yet he has never published a paper on any of these topics. If he really wanted to help humanity forward through science why does he not advance science in any way? He may call himself a scientist a thousand times, but he is then a scientist that makes outrageous and false claims all the time while not backing any of it up with actual science. Instead of being a scientist he writes books for the masses. The masses who don’t know any better then to accept his authority through self proclamations of being “a scientist”. The masses who have not studied the things he lectures about, so can be told anything that sounds kind of right, but too complicated to investigate themselves. He may have managed to get a degree in geology once, but that does not make him a scientist. Certainly not an astronomer, physicist, biologist, theologist, anthropologist, psychologist or a philosopher. He has made so many false scientific statements and contributed so little to actual science that it would be just to revoke his claim to being a scientist. He certainly has lost any right to preach to the masses on the topic of science.

    Now Gregg is certainly not dumb. He must have been put in his place by actual scientists a million times by now. This blog post is yet another example. 2012 has come and gone: nothing happened. The Schumann base resonance has not changed since the 80’s (go to ttp://bit.ly/1OAMF80 and see the band at around 8hz if you want to feel comforted). Yet he continues his charade trying to sell you an ancient prayer, his latest book or a three day workshop. For someone who has apparently so much invested in the truth of things this is rather odd. We know he is not dumb and we can assume that he is not evil, therefore he must be in serious denial. I pity the man; he seems to want to do good, but all he achieves is living in denial of factual truth and spreading misinformation. Perhaps, lucky for him, he is in complete denial and lives totally in woo woo land, but I fear that some part of him knows what state he is in and feels entirely reluctant to owe up to the bullshit he is spread.

  28. All I am going to tell you is our family experience, my father served in ww2 and is now 94. Personal experiences of his taught him that there IS life after death and a few other things. The point being that we all use meditation to connect with ourselves individually and the universe utilizing an ancient text called the 27lessons by Baron Eugene von Ferzen of the Light bearers,available online.
    Dad nearly 2 years ago went into hospital for infection in his legs while there his kidneys’ started failing and we thought we were going to lose him.
    He came home and immediately commenced daily meditation 3 times for min 20minutes.
    Now for the non doctors kidney failure has no western medical treatment. They basically said make preparations.
    Within 2 months there was a significant change for the good. After 6 months test results showed full turn around, normal function and levels were back to normal.
    So if anyone tries to tell me that there is nothing to what people like Gregg are trying to get across then I am sorry for them and enjoy staying programed by the bullshit of so called intelligent society. Science explains alot but can it show how love and many unseen things to o us are created or whatever,No!?
    Like radio waves,electricity which are unseen to the naked eye but we know exist, how many other things are there but are unseen. Our egos make us too cocksure ,we can’t even use our brains more than 20%!! We have way too much to learn and if we close our minds then where will we be….?

  29. I guess being skeptical is OK that can be helpful . I have had a few major injuries in my mid to late teens and in my twenties.I thought I would be in a wheel chair by now , I am not .I have learned some techniques on how to heal myself that have worked.I am self taught on how to read tarot cards.from 1995 to 1997 I learned ascension from a monk I guess you call them her name was uma .these technics work. I learned reiki in 2001 it has made a difference for me. I would not try to convince you of anything , I would offer a tarot card reading if you like and you can decide if it is accurate or if it helps you in any way.there is a lot of information I could share with you that could make you have greater insight on channeled information an all of that so called new aged stuff.

  30. I watched one of Braden’s episodes this week at my BIL’s house, with his new-agey wife (I love her). Anyway, I tried to really listen but called bullshit three or four times There is a type of manic Elmer Gantry really making money behavior that is very weird. I called this guy a huckster to my relatives and they felt sorry for me, and they were mad. Seeing all of this conversation further makes me trust my first instincts.

    • he reminds me of that person in the room that loves the sound of his own voice he also reminds me of richard branson – hes milking that scene for his own ends which works against what he purports to stand for

  31. I am not a scientist but I love your blog!
    I come across a day seminar mr Braden did it in Italy, at the begin I was very interested but when you listen to this man for too long becames repetitive and boring!
    He has no ideas of his own, he keeps mentioning this and that, lacks of originality and frankly I am surprise so many people follow him, he talks of gloom & doom, the facts everything is changing fast etccc
    He is not new age, and he is not a real scientific mind, he uses exactly the same sentences in every interview.
    I am not a new age follower either but one day I listen to Stuart Wilde and my life was changed.
    We may or may not be living in a holographic universe and with our thoughts we can create our own reality, our world is governed by an economix system in place centuries ago, why instead to tell us our bad is the world he should teach how beautiful it is, and teach people self empowerment, he probabily searches for indigenous people because he can embellish what they say because nobody really can say otherwise.
    In other words:
    All infos Braden provides are available to all of us in many different fields without streatching the truth and I stick with my own belief

  32. First, macro evolution and micro evolution are different. Just because someone says they dont ascribe to the religion of macro evolution, but use it say, to explain conscious evolution. No fault committed.
    Second, scientific “minds” will NEVER be satisfied in scientific attempts to varify anything beyond the 4th dimension. One leaves/exits/transcends the dualistic human 4th dimension for 5th. Nothing needs to be proved to a human in 5th density because there are none here. On one hand you could say we “appear” to still be human but everone here KNOWS. So we are somewhat amused at 4th density intellects attempts to disprove 5th dimensional realities. It will only affect 4th dimensional humans where you reside, which will undergird your flawed attemps of diswasion <—- (5th density word)
    I appreciate your diligence in looking for fraud but you wont find any in 5th density and the only way to know/verify/understand is to EMBODY.

    Love and Light 😀

    • Mr. Poehl, are you aware of String Theory, or a similar approach, “M” Theory? They are actually still hypotheses, but theoretical astrophysicists proposed these ideas several decades ago and there are still proponents to this day. The number of dimensions vary, but it’s anywhere from 10-26, depending on which theory they’re talking about. The theories each have their own interesting jargon, not all that dissimilar to your own.
      If you truly think you’re onto something that will break through our inability to detect dimensions beyond the four we’ve found so far, please do present your paper to a reputable scientific journal and get those ideas out there where they can be hashed over by scientists and hopefully turned into a new path of exploration.
      Also, why was it so important to mention evolution, when the focus of your comment concerns theoretical astrophysics? Just so you could take a jab at biologists, who don’t do anything with dimensions anyway? Or was it so you could deride all scientists, comparing them with religious fanatics? Your throw-away comment strongly suggests you don’t know much about science or how it works. Please don’t deride something you don’t understand–it makes you sound like you’re being willfully ignorant.

      • Rick, it appears only smug bastards can transcend to the 5th dimension. You’re much better off in the 4th

  34. Quite interesting to me that this ‘blog post’ stands alone by itself. No mention of credentials for the writer, just castigations of Mr. Braden. Why should we listen to you?

    • Quite interesting that you missed the byline which is directly under the title of the blog post, and you missed the “About” page link on the right-hand side. Regardless of who I am, the claims themselves are what matter, so you should be looking at the evidence that I present rather than trying to decide if I’m to be “believed” for who I am rather than the material I wrote.

  36. Hallo everybody – this is my approach to identifying a spike in the vertical component of the earth’s magnetic field in the region of 36000 km above the earth – that is the approximate distance of geostationary satellites such as the GOES series. Magnetic disturbances in that region are common, however the reason for said disturbances are solar events, notably Coronal Mass Ejections or the Solar Wind. In other words the source of the disturbances are the sun. In the case of 9/11 it is suggested that the source of the disturbance (spike) originates from earth.

    Magnetic field strength decreases with distance and just to get a feel for things if I take the average field strength on earth to be 50000nT and the average field strength at 36000km above earth as 100nT, I get a ratio of 500:1. This implies that a global “pulse” or variation of 500nT will result in a 1nT variation at 36000km distance. The global aspect here is very important otherwise every fridge magnet (small sized magnet with relatively strong field) would have a massive influence on the field in outer space.

    There are more than 100 ground based magnetometer stations (of INTERMAGNET standard with online historic data) all over the world. In the mid-lattitude regions the daily variation in the “absence of a magnetic storm” is less than 50nt. A sudden ground based variation of 500nT would have everybody sitting up and would be very apparent in the ground based data observations. I fail to find such large variations in the ground based data.

    The GOES data in question shows a spike larger than 50nt which translates to there needeing to be a ground (earth) based variation larger than 25000 nT at that time. That is clearly not the case. I conclude that either my argument is flawed or the origin of the spike in the GOES data was not from earth.

  37. Respectful Insolence just published a blog post examining a ‘scientific paper’ published by Braden’s Global Coherence Institute, lots of cherry picking.

  38. In Greg Bradens defence.
    I have to say that his videos about human ability to cure ourselves & each other helped me to understand miraculous events in my own life that I couldn’t explain before !
    I cannot Thank Braden enough for making his theories public!
    What events ?
    The first time…..
    .I was healed
    & on another occassion my baby Grandson was healed instantly.
    His fever was so high he burned me when I held him. I prayed & felt the emotion as if this prayer was already true. Imagining my grandbaby
    Playing with his toys. Laughing & enjoying his baby giggles & 5 minutes later that baby was running doin all those things! Feeling Great ! But!
    I was oh so sick !
    Why ?
    Because i was too
    Ignorant to know that I didn’t have
    to take that sickness upon myself.
    I just wanted the baby to be healed.
    However …I did take it upon myself.
    & I was very sick for over a week. I
    I respect you for coming forth with what you stated.
    But consider this. Perhaps those messahr
    Thank you Greg Braden !

  40. I can’t say much about the other evidence you touch on, but I was listening to this lecture while at work—a premier science research library. I pulled that issue of Nature right off the shelf eager to read the article Braden mentions. Super disappointed. What the hell is that?

  41. I dont understand why atheists and agnostics feel the need to use personal insults to defend their ideology. If you really believed that you hold the truth of how the world and universe operate you wouldn’t need to insult. Its childish and it illustrates the fear you have that you might be wrong.

  42. Let each and every one of us find the truth in every proposed theory and possibility on every topic including religion, spirituality, mysticism, and science that resonates with each and every one of our hearts individually. As they say, there are many paths to godliness and we’re all in charge of our own. Who are we then to judge others on theirs, lest we are willing to be judged on ours? To all who have read this post and commented, and for all those who will still visit this space in the ether/matrix of 1s and 0s, made possible by electric and magnetic fields, and plastic and metals and all manner of things including storage somewhere in the “cloud” which can upset the balance of a person’s emotions and ego and thought on the other side of the world, perhaps we’re not even talking to a real person … maybe it’s an AI … yet its influence is infinite … why even allow something so intangible influence you at all? Perhaps there’s something of more significance in your manifested personally created actual physical life that deserves your attention more than spending time on an electrical device that disseminates information or non-information or disinformation that doesn’t actually even really exist in your physical reality. You can’t touch it, you can’t smell it, you can’t taste it – you can only perceive what is actually just 1s and 0s and you interpret these electric signals and coded information as something you think or were taught and conditioned to think is actually real. Go figure. Who knows what’s real and what’s not? I’ll leave you with that. Who know if even I am real. Am I an AI bot created in a lab somewhere to learn and grow in intelligence and answer and comment, or am I an actual human being on the other side of a computer screen typing this? How do you actually know? What do you actually believe? Hmm. “I wonder, how many times you’ve been had?”

  43. Well, some things just can’t be explained with science. And I’m pretty sure experiments are being done everyday that never see the light of day. When we live in a world where most humans have this idea that they know it all and what you believe is wrong, it’s hard to believe anything. But the reality is, you gotta believe in something. Otherwise, you’re lost. Maybe Gregg doesn’t suit your taste, and maybe he is seeing this information wrong, but maybe he’s not. Maybe your version is wrong. Maybe you see what you want to see. Maybe you just don’t want to believe that all of this is possible, and so it’s not. You can call it a religion or a cult or whatever it is that you want, but when you go through life putting these ideas into practice and they work wonders- well, is it reality or just our perception of reality? Whatever it is, I can say it works.

  44. You write how Gregg Braden gives wrong information, than you are not giving any truth facts. Whats wrong with people in America. Are you adraid of speaking scientific truth so.people can learn facts that this guy misinterpret. Omg..please provide facts.

  45. I suspect Mr. Braden has notched up his small fortune by telling people what they want to believe. Some of it is legit. Some is unproven. I left a comment a few days back on one of his YouTube “lectures” – just respectfully pointing out a small flaw in his ‘evidence’. —he blocked me!! Nice fellow.
