Primary Field Quotations

Below are a substantial number of quotes that make reference to aspects of the Primary Field..

Intelligent Design.. 
Intangible & Invisible..
The First Cause.


"Everything emanates from the same source. Everything is a voice or speech resounding over the world, through the entire universe, through microcosmos and macrocosmos. It vibrates through the shining of the stars. It shines in the orbits of the planets. It is whispered through the gentle breeze and is murmured in the depths of the forest. It is whistled through the sirens of the factories and is heard in the noise of the machines. It is sung over the cradle and spoken at the grave. It is vague feeling or notion, wisdom and belief. It is knowledge, recognition and hope. It is death, resurrection and life. It is colour, vibration and light. It is everything that can in any way be sensed, thought and experienced."

Everything is dependent on everything else, everything is connected, nothing is separate.
Therefore everything is going in the only way it can go.
If people were different everything would be different.
They are what they are, so everything is as it is.
G. I. Gurdjieff

The universe on a very basic level could be a vast web of particles which remain in contact with one another over distance, and in no time.
R. Nadeau and M. Kafatos

No theory of reality compatible with quantum theory can require spatially separate events to be independent.
J.S. Bell

We have actually touched the Borderland where Matter and Force seem to merge into one another, the shadowy realm between the Known and Unknown ... I venture to think that the greatest scientific problems of the future will find their solution in this Borderland, and even beyond; here, it seems to me, lie Ultimate Realities, subtle, far-reaching, wonderful.
Sir William Crookes, 1879

“The distinction between natural and supernatural, in fact, broke down; and when it had done so, the burden of intolerable strangeness which this universe imposes on us by dividing it into two halves and encouraging the mind never to think of both in the same context. What price we may have paid for this comfort in the way of false security and accepted confusion of the thought is another matter.”
C.S Lewis

The spirit down here in man and the spirit up there in the sun, in reality are only one spirit, and there is no other one.
The Upanishads

Although each of us obviously inhabits a separate physical body, the laboratory data from a hundred years of parapsychology research strongly indicate that there is no separation in consciousness.
Russell Targ

  “We are inseparable from nature. God is the living fabric of the universe.”
Author Unknown

"Underneath the superficial self, which pays attention to this and that, there is another self more really us than I.  And the more you become aware of the unknown self -- if you become aware of it -- the more you realize that it is inseparably connected with everything else that is.  You are a function of this total galaxy, bounded by the Milky Way, and this galaxy is a function of all other galaxies.  You are that vast thing that you see far, far off with great telescopes.  You look and look, and one day you are going to wake up and say,
'Why, that's me!'  And in knowing that, you know that you never die.

You are the eternal thing that comes and goes, that appears -- now as John Jones, now as Mary Smith, now as Betty Brown -- and so it goes, forever and ever and ever."
Alan Watts

"I am an orphan, alone; nevertheless I am found everywhere.
I am one, but opposed to myself.
I am youth and an old man at one and the same time.
I have known no father nor mother,
because I have had to be fetched out of the deep like a fish,
or fell like a white stone from heaven.
In woods and mountains I roam,
but I am hidden in the innermost soul of man.
I am mortal for everyone,
yet I am not touched by the cycle of the aeons."
Quotation from high alchemy

The whole history of science has been the gradual realization that events do not happen in an arbitrary manner, but that they reflect a certain underlying order, which may or may not be divinely inspired.
Stephen W. Hawking

The universe on a very basic level could be a vast web of particles which remain in contact with one another over R. Nadeau and M. Kafatos

Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
Chief Seattle


All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force… We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter.
Max Planck, Nobel Prize-winning Father of Quantum Theory

Mind and intelligence are woven into the fabric of our universe in a way that altogether surpasses our understanding.
Freeman Dyson

The whole history of science has been the gradual realization that events do not happen in an arbitrary manner, but that they reflect a certain underlying order, which may or may not be divinely inspired.
Stephen W. Hawking

The visible world is the invisible organization of energy.
Physicist Heinz Pagels

"Today there is a wide measure of agreement that the stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than a great machine. Mind no longer appears as an accidental intruder into the realm of matter; we are beginning to suspect that we ought rather to hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter."
Sir James Jeans

...the sense of being which in calm hours arises, we know not how, in the soul, is not diverse from things, from space, from light, from time, from man, but one with them and proceeds obviously from the same source.... Here is the fountain of action and of thought.... We lie in the lap of immense intelligence.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“If as the Universe was developing, gravity had been any stronger, our universe would have been smaller and everything would have happened more quickly. The average star, for instance, would have existed for only about one year, certainly not enough time for life to develop. If gravity had been any weaker, matter would not have congealed into stars and galaxies at all. In other words, if the strength of gravitation had varied by as little as one part in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, we would not be here to reflect upon the universe.(Luck??)”
Gravity by Michael Talbot

Matter has reached the point of beginning to know itself … [Man is] a star’s way of knowing about stars.
George Wald

This pure Mind, the source of everything,
Shines forever and on all with the brilliance of its own perfection. But the people of the world do not awake to it,
Regarding only that which sees, hears, feels and knows as mind, Blinded by their own sight, hearing, feeling and knowing,
They do not perceive the spectral brilliance of the source of all substance.
Huang Po

'Another source of conviction in the existence of God ... follows from the ... impossibility of conceiving this immense and wonderful universe, including man with his capacity for looking far backwards and far into futurity, as the result of blind chance or necessity.'
Charles Darwin


Scientists are in the strange position of being confronted daily by the indisputable fact of their own consciousness, yet with no way of explaining it.
Christian de Quincey

What is this "I"?
You will, on close introspection, find that what you really mean by "I" is the ground-stuff upon which all experiences are collected.
Erwin Schroedinger

God sleeps in the rock
dreams in the plant,
stirs in the animal
and awakens in man
Sufi teaching

“Creation begins with the activity of consciousness, which may be called vibration. Every vibration starting from its original source is the same, differing only in the tone and rhythm caused by a greater or lesser degree of force behind it. On the plane of sound, vibration causes diversity of tone, and in the world of atoms, diversity of color. It is by massing together that the vibrations become audible, but at each step towards the surface they multiply, and as they advance they materialize. Sound gives to the consciousness an evidence of its existence, although it is in fact the active part of consciousness itself which turns into sound. The knower so to speak becomes known to himself; in other words the consciousness bears witness to its own voice. It is thus that sound appeals to man. All things being derived from and formed of vibrations have sound hidden within them, as fire is hidden in flint, and each atom of the universe confesses by its tone, " My sole origin is sound." If any solid or hollow sonorous body is struck it will answer back, " I am sound."

Creation and Sound by Hazrat Inayat Khan

As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of being.
Carl Jung

Consciousness is a being, the nature of which is to be conscious of the nothingness of its being.
Jean-Paul Sartre

How could there be any question of acquiring or possessing, when the one thing needful for a man is to become-to be at last, and to die in the fullness of his being.
Antoine De Saint-Exupery

"Every soul is the microcosm of the macrocosm. Every soul has all it needs deep within."

Author Unknown

...perhaps there is a pattern set up in the heavens for one who desires to see it, and having seen it, to find one in himself.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters to what lies within us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The mind is like an iceberg floating,
with only a seventh rising above the water"
Author Unknown

There is no compulsory, mechanical evolution. Evolution is the result of conscious struggle. The evolution of man is the evolution of his consciousness, and 'consciousness' cannot evolve unconsciously. The evolution of man is the evolution of his will, and 'will' cannot evolve involuntarily.

The evolution of man is the evolution of his power of doing, and 'doing' cannot be the result of things which 'happen'.
'Progress' and 'Civilization', in the real meaning of these words, can appear only as a result of conscious efforts. They cannot appear as the result of unconscious mechanical actions.
The evolution of man can be taken as the development in him of those powers and possibilities which never develop by themselves, that is, mechanically. Only this kind of development, only this kind of growth, marks the real evolution of man. There is, and there can be, no other kind of evolution whatever.
G. I. Gurdjieff

The aim isn't to degrade mind to matter, but to upgrade the properties of matter to account for mind, and to tell how from the dust and water of the earth, natural forces conjured a mental system capable of asking why it exists.
Nigel Calder

“You have the power to degenerate into the lower forms of life, which are brutish. You have the power, out of your soul's judgment, to be reborn into the higher forms which are divine. Whatever seeds each man cultivates will grow to maturity and bear in him their own fruit. If they be vegetative, he will become like a plant. If of the senses, he will become brutish. If rational, he will grow into a heavenly being. If intellectual, he will be an angel and a son of God. And if, happy in the lot of no created thing, he withdraws into the centre of his own unity, his spirit, made one with God, in the solitary darkness of God, who is set above all things, he shall surpass them all.”
Pico della Mirandola

That which the dream shows is the shadow of such wisdom as exists in man, even if during his waking state he may know nothing about it... We do not know it because we are fooling away our time with outward and perishing things, and are asleep in regard to that which is real within ourself.
Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus

“How did I come to be?
Where did I come from?
To serve what purpose did I come?
To go again!
How can I learn anything_ knowing nothing?"

“If you do not know the law
Of dying and becoming,
You are but a shadow guest
On the earth-plane roaming.”
Author Unknown

We know that there is not one space and one time only, but that there are as many spaces and times as there are subjects.
Jacob von Uexkull

I have yet to meet a single person from our culture, no matter what his or her educational background, IQ, and specific training, who had powerful transpersonal experiences and continues to subscribe to the materialistic monism of Western science.
Albert Einstein

All speech, action, and behavior are fluctuations of consciousness. All life emerges from, and is sustained in, consciousness. The whole universe is the expression of consciousness. The reality of the universe is one unbounded ocean of consciousness in motion.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

The state of least excitation of consciousness is the field of all possibilities.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi


“But the eternal is not a thing which can be had regardless of the way in which it is acquired; no, the eternal is not really a thing, but is the way in which it is acquired.”

"I saw that the universe is not composed of dead matter, but is, on the  contrary, a living Presence; I became conscious in myself of eternal  life.  It was not a conviction that I would have eternal life, but a  consciousness that I possessed eternal life then; I saw that all men are  immortal; that the cosmic order is such that without any peradventure all  things work together for the good of each and all; that the foundation  principle of the world, of all the worlds, is what we call love, and that the happiness of each and all is in the long run absolutely certain."
R.M Bucke

We feel and know that we are eternal.
Edmund Spenser

It gives me a deep comforting sense that ‘things seen are temporal and things unseen are eternal.’
Helen Keller

“But the eternal is not a thing which can be had regardless of the way in which it is acquired; no, the eternal is not really a thing, but is the way in which it is acquired.”

"Start right now drawing from the infinite eternal source which knows no beginning and no end."
Eileen Caddy


"There is motion but there are, ultimately, no moving objects; there is activity, but there are no actors; there are no dancers, there is only the dance.”
Fritjof Capra

“It was obvious to Aristotle that most things which move do so because some other moving object impels them. A hand, itself in motion, moves a sword; a wind, itself in motion, moves a ship. But it was also fundamental to his thought that no infinite series can be actual. We cannot therefore go on explaining one movement by another ad infinitum. There must be in the last resort something which, motionless itself, initiates the motion of all other things. Such a Prime Mover he finds in the wholly transcendent and immaterial God who ‘occupies no place and is not affected by time’. But we must not imagine Him moving things by any positive action, for that would be to attribute some kind of motion to Himself and we should then not have reached an utterly unmoving Mover. How then does He move things? Aristotle answers [Greek here], ‘He moves as beloved’. He moves other things, that is, as an object of desire moves those who desire it. The Primum Mobile is moved by its love for God, and being moved, communicates motion to the rest of the universe.”
C.S Lewis


“How can you continue to see the world to be real.. if the self that is determining it to be real.. is intangible..?

Not only does God play dice, but... he sometimes throws them where they cannot be seen.
Stephen W. Hawking

To confine our attention to terrestrial matters would be to limit the human spirit.
Stephen W. Hawking

Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish; every sweet word will fade, But do not be disheartened, The source they come from is eternal, growing, Branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you And this whole world is springing up from it.
Jelauddin Rumi

"The soul takes flight to the world beyond, which is invisible,
and upon arrival is assured of finding bliss."

Matter is not made of matter.
Hans-Peter Dürr


"Start right now drawing from the infinite eternal source which knows no beginning and no end."
Eileen Caddy

`We must not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we began and to know the place for the first time.'

And this was something actually, going back to Shrödinger–the quantum physicist. He was fascinated by the whole subject of consciousness. And he actually wrote something very beautiful about this. He was writing about the 1930s. And he said, "What is this ‘I’? You will, on close introspection, find that what you really mean by ‘I’ is the ground stuff upon which all experience is based."
