Explorations Into The Collective Unconscious Library

By James Donahue

For years we have written about something called a collective unconsciousness . . . a common thread of knowledge that seems to be pooled in a brain library that all humans can access through right brain functioning. The name was coined by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung.

This human library appears to be the glue that the shaman refers to when he declares that "we are all one." What he means is that all people are linked to a common light system . . . some call it God . . . from which we originated. Prophet Aaron C. Donahue calls it the light of Lucifer, or the soul, to which we are all linked.

Unfortunately, the collective unconsciousness, which contains every thought produced by human minds not only in the present, but also in the past and future, is rarely visited. That is because most people don't know it exists. Even if they do know, or even suspect its existence, nearly everyone in contemporary society lacks the mental capability to visit on demand.

(Ironically, many of the "primitive" aboriginal tribal people still living close to the earth still maintain this ancient capability. They have not forgotten their roots.)

There are rare times when humans make contact, however, but it occurs during unexpected moments. We tend to call it that "certain feeling" or "hunch" about events, crimes, lottery numbers or looming disasters. It is said that Abraham Lincoln dreamed of his death just before he was fatally shot in the Ford Theater. Psychic Jean Dixon became famous after she warned of the pending death of President John F. Kennedy, even though her public warnings were disregarded.

Other so-called psychics, or sensitives, have accurately predicted earthquakes, airplane crashes and disasters at sea. There is a story about the mother of two sailors on the Great Lakes who telegraphed her sons to warn them to stay in port just prior to the Great Storm of 1913. She said she had a dream. The warning was heeded by one of the sons, who left his boat before it sailed. The brother was lost when the vessel, the Canadian freighter Wixon, sank with all hands while the storm ravaged Lake Huron.

We know that psychics like Edgar Casey, Nostradamus, and Daniel (of the Old Testament) made many accurate predictions about future events. How did they do it?

Why can church groups collectively pray for healing and see results?

A few years ago, when Texas and Florida were experiencing extreme draughts and fires were burning unabated across Florida, Art Bell asked listeners on his all night radio talk show to think about rain for Florida. He said it was going to be an experiment in the power of the mind. The next day Florida got rain.  Bell was so amazed by the result, he tried the experiment again for Texas. And sure enough, it rained in Texas. Bell's radio show probably has one of the largest listening audiences of any radio talk show in the world.

While these incidents occur frequently enough that the stories are familiar, there never has been enough of a consistency about psychic functioning for most scientists to take it seriously.

This may be changing, however.

Since 1988 a small research team involved in something called the Global Consciousness Project, has had 37 computers set up around the world to analyze certain unexplained numerical data during times of major events.

The team noticed certain oddities in what it calls a "random toss of the coin" during world shocking events like the sinking of the Russian submarine Kursk and the tragic death of Princess Diana. But they said the numbers "skewed in one direction" for several hours during the September 11 attacks.

Dean Radin, a researcher involved in the project, said the data is still being analyzed. In an interview with USA Today he said "We're not dealing with something as simple as thoughts affecting the system. But there is a correlation and it's not clear how it comes about."

When Dr. John S. Bell discovered mathematically through quantum mechanics that "any two particles once in contact will continue to influence each other, no matter how far apart they may subsequently move," no one thought to apply this concept to human thought processes.

Bell's Theorem implies that events throughout the universe influence each other through instantaneous communication.

The Global Consciousness Project is among the first scientific attempts to understand the phenomenon of human "psychic" functioning.
