Claire – The Documentary of Claire Wineland

There was a movie called “Five Feet Apart” that reminded me of the courageous and inspirational story of Claire Wineland. Honestly, the documentary above is much better than the movie, but it reminded me of Wineland’s story.

It’s an exceptionally potent reminder of how we need to live life to the fullest, even though we might die tomorrow. I really don’t know of any better example of that than Wineland.

So, trust me on this one. This film is only 40 minutes long. Promise me that you will schedule some time to watch in its entirety and tell me if it doesn’t change your perspective on life. If it doesn’t, I would be interested to know and will review the comment section.

Claire Wineland, Inspirational Speaker Extraordinaire

Wineland was an inspirational speaker and YouTube sensation who sadly died September 2, 2018, not from cystic fibrosis, which she was born with, but from a stroke following an otherwise successful lung transplant that would have extended her life another five years if successful.1 She was 21.

At age 13, Wineland founded the Claire’s Place Foundation2 to help families with children who, like herself, struggle with cystic fibrosis — a progressive and terminal genetic disease that causes an overproduction and buildup of thick, sticky mucus in the lungs and other organs.

The disease requires daily breathing treatment for up to five hours a day, and children with cystic fibrosis typically end up spending a lot of time in the hospital due to respiratory distress and chronic infections. Wineland is said to have spent about a quarter of her life in the hospital.

In 2016, she received the World of Children Youth Award3 for her foundation’s support of children with CF and their families. At the age of 19, Wineland launched CF University, an online resource for children where they can learn more about their disease.

Mere days before her surgery and untimely death, Wineland gave thanks to the thousands of people who donated nearly $268,000 to her Go Fund Me campaign to pay for the surgery that she and her family otherwise could not afford.4

The transplant surgery took nine hours, and went well. However, shortly afterward, she suffered a massive stroke on the right side of her brain. She was placed in a medically induced coma, from which she never emerged.

A Life of Purpose

In 2016, Wineland appeared in an episode of “My Last Days,” (above) a limited CW docuseries hosted by Justin Baldoni, featuring people living with terminal illness.5

“My name is Claire Wineland. I’m 18 years old,” she says. “I’m living with something called cystic fibrosis. Doctors say I have around a year left to live, but that doesn’t really matter to me because death is inevitable. But living a life that we are proud of, that is something we can actually control.”

According to Wineland’s father, she’d always been a positive little girl, but something happened when, at the age of 13, she went into lung failure and slipped into a coma for 17 days. When she emerged, she had a new level of acceptance about her, and an attitude of wanting to enjoy life as much as she could, all while knowing her days were numbered.

“The only thing you’re told when you have an illness is, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry … Your life must be horrible.’ Those exact words, over and over and over again. That gets so cemented into your consciousness. What kind of weird belief is that?” Wineland says.

“Most 18-year-olds do not have to deal with what I have to deal with specifically, no. But everyone has to deal with their own pain. The absolute truth is that I don’t think the pain I’ve been through is any more severe than the pain any other individual has been through. It might be more physical, but I’ve also had the incredible gift of having people who genuinely love me giving me so much mental stability and strength.

We have to realize that we are part of something bigger. What happens in our world, what happens in our society, is very literally a part of us because we’re so influenced by it, and it is so influenced by us … We can’t put ourselves in a bubble. We can’t detach from the world that we live in.”

Blessed With Life

Wineland’s mother is convinced her daughter came into the world with a mission to share the message of “what it’s like to be blessed with life.” “I think she felt, knowing she had a shorter life, she wanted to do more with it,” she says. I couldn’t agree more.

“I’ve always loved the idea of bringing life into places where people think life doesn’t really exist,” Wineland says of her idea to start posting videos of her hospital stays on YouTube. “Some of my favorite moments of my entire life were when I was in the hospital.” For Wineland, the hospital was a wonderful, cheerful place of healing and friendship. “My Last Days” does an excellent job of showing that.

But in addition to sharing her life on YouTube, Wineland had bigger goals: Public speaking. She says she was always drawn to public speaking and from an early age, she would stand up and give “very long monologues” during family gatherings.

During the filming of “My Last Days,” Baldoni surprised Wineland with an unusual gift: Private lessons by speech coach Richard Green, who agreed to help her polish her public speaking skills and craft a speech. Green tells Wineland he believes she’s “destined to impact and change the world.”

“Great public speaking is nothing more than having a conversation from your heart — something you do all the time,” Green tells her. “Number two, [speaking] about something you’re authentically passionate about, in order to help another person, help a group of people or help the world … That’s how you’ve lived your life and you’re not afraid of it.”

Wineland’s Message

When asked by Green what she would want her audience to get from her speech, she says, “I’d want them to have a moment of clarity. Realizing they actually have power in their happiness and in the way their life goes.” She ended up giving that speech at the Life Is Beautiful Music and Arts festival in Las Vegas, September 2015.6

“I can stand up here and tell you I am genuinely proud of my life,” she said during that speech. “I am so proud to be alive. I’m not saying that I don’t feel pain … sadness and suffering and loneliness, because that’s what it means to be a human being. I’m saying that pain, that loneliness and that sadness is beautiful …

We live in a society that benefits off of us continuously looking for happiness, for dreams and goals ‘out there.’ If we say ‘no, we’re not going to go looking out there for happiness; we’re alive and that is all we need,’ then we are beating the system! And we’re living lives we can be proud of. We’re living lives that make us happy.”

Wineland’s mother says:

“I think people see in her this light, that she was born with. Claire Lucia means ‘clear light,’ and I really think that embodies who she is. She’s very real, and I think some of these great things that are happening are because she relates to people on a different level … I think the biggest thing she’s taught me is ‘stay in the moment’ … Right this second is great; right this second is beautiful.”

‘CLAIRE’ the Documentary

Wineland’s life was nothing if not impactful, and even though she’s gone, her impact is bound to continue. Proceeds from “CLAIRE,” made by Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Nicholas Reed,7 and produced by YouTube Originals,8,9,10 will go to Claire’s Place Foundation. According to The Wrap,11 Reed worked with Wineland for the last 18 months of her life. In a statement, Reed said:12

“When I met Claire, I was totally blown away. All my partners instantly said ‘she is the most amazing young person we have ever met, we have to do a film on her.’ And wow, with each meeting we were humbled more and more by her story.

We are honored to have worked with Claire and with the blessing of her family on this official documentary that encapsulates the true nature of Claire and her courageous battle to help dignify people who are sick.”  

You can support Wineland’s legacy by making a donation directly to Claire’s Place Foundation. Last but certainly not least, you can honor her gift by living your own life with gratitude and purpose. 

Optimism and having a sense of purpose in life has actually been scientifically shown to have direct benefits on health and is associated with increased life expectancy. Wineland was herself a testament to this, as she never expected to make it past her teens.

As explained by Wineland, your purpose is really all about what you believe you can give; how you can make a difference. So often, people get stuck in the limiting mentality of “I’m just one person, how could I possibly make a difference?” Well, you can. You might not be able to help everyone, but you can help some.

What are you enthusiastic about? What revs your internal engine? What comes really naturally to you? What do you enjoy doing most? Exploring your answers to these questions can help you discover your purpose, if you feel you haven’t found it yet.

Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude

Wineland’s message also stresses the importance of cultivating an attitude of gratitude. In her speech at the Life Is Beautiful Music and Arts festival, she said:

You’re never going to be happy with what you get unless you’re happy with what you have. And that’s what you have to do with your life. You have to look at all of it; all the pain, all the loneliness, all the beauty, all the friendship, the family, the sickness and the health — you have to lay it all in front of you and say, ‘Okay, this is what I have. It’s all wonderful. What can I make with it?”

Aside from augmenting happiness and life satisfaction, gratitude actually produces measurable effects on a number of bodily systems, including beneficial effects on mood and pleasure-related neurotransmitters, reproductive and social bonding hormones, cognition, blood pressure and more.

Importantly, it lowers the stress hormone cortisol and inflammatory cytokines, which are often elevated if you have chronic disease. Health benefits associated with gratitude include:13,14,15,16

A greater sense of pleasure, as gratitude stimulates your hypothalamus (a brain area involved in the regulation of stress) and your ventral tegmental area (part of your brain’s “reward circuitry,” an area that produces pleasurable feelings)17

Improved sleep18 (especially if your mind has a tendency to go into overdrive with negative thoughts and worries at bedtime)

A higher likelihood of engaging in other healthy activities and self-care such as exercise

Higher relationship satisfaction

Improved work performance (in one study, managers who expressed gratitude saw a 50 percent increase in the employees’ performance)

Reduced stress and emotional distress, in part by improving emotional resiliency

Enhanced well-being and improved mental health by triggering the release of antidepressant and mood-regulating chemicals such as serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and oxytocin, while inhibiting cortisol

Improved heart health,19 reducing the likelihood of sudden death in patients with congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease

Reduced inflammation and pain

Improved immune function

If you’re not yet in the habit of taking note of what you’re grateful for, see “Gratitude makes you healthier, happier and more popular” for a dozen practical strategies to help build and strengthen your gratitude muscle.

Can Strategic Sound Deter Loitering?

Noise probably doesn’t pop into your head as being a major public deterrent — unless you happen to live in an area with an excess of it. Noise pollution can cause problems with well-being and physical health, so it’s not a stretch to understand how noise could be used strategically for crowd control and even as a weapon.

One controversial example is a device known as the “Mosquito,” which is being used as a tool to deter loitering in city parks and playgrounds. Although the device emits a high-pitched ringing noise, it can only be heard by the target audience — teens and young adults that city officials hope to keep out of certain areas after dark.

How Noise Is Being Used as a Youth Repellant

Philadelphia is one U.S. city that’s installed the Mosquito, a small speaker-like device, in 30 parks and recreation centers.1 Their purpose is to deter youth from hanging around the areas at night by emitting an unpleasant, high-pitched noise.

According to their parent company, Moving Sound Technologies (MST), the sound is similar to the buzzing of a mosquito and, when set to 17KHz, can only be heard by people between the ages of 13 and 25 years.2

This is because as people age, they typically have a harder time hearing high-pitched frequencies. Generally, adults hear sounds in the 0.02 to 16KHz range (sound is measured in hertz (Hz), with one KHz being equal to 1,000 Hz),3 but it’s not a perfect science.

Data are scarce on whether the devices work to reduce loitering or vandalism, but anecdotal reports on MST’s website suggest the relatively innocuous devices are leading to fewer incidents in areas such as condominium stairwells.4 In Philadelphia, the noise makers operate only from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and work in concert with other antivandalism tools, including security cameras, security staff and fences.5

Is Targeting Teens With Noise Ethical?

Part of the controversy over the Mosquito stems from the fact that some people living around the parks where it’s being used say they can hear the ringing. Mary Kate Riecks, who is 27 years old — outside of the device’s targeted age range — told NPR that she can hear the noise from a Mosquito a few blocks away:6

“It almost is more like a feeling than a sound. It’s kind of in the back of your head … At least for me, it gives me a headache if I’m near it for too long. So I usually skip around this block or walk very quickly down it.”

There is also concern that young children, including those unable to express their discomfort, can hear the noise, and the National Youth Rights Association suggested the devices are a form of age discrimination. The city of Washington, D.C., which had installed the devices in the Gallery Place Metro station in 2010, removed them due to discrimination concerns.7

The United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child also suggested the Mosquito and similar devices may violate children’s rights. They’ve since been banned in certain public spaces in several England counties.8 Even in Philadelphia, their use is controversial. City Council member Helen Gym called them “sonic weapons,” stating, as reported by NPR:9

“In a city that is trying to address gun violence and safe spaces for young people, how dare we come up with ideas that are funded by taxpayer dollars to turn young people away from the very places that were created for them?”

Also at issue is whether the sounds could produce harmful effects, although MST says no long-term side effects occur.

“The Mosquito has been tested by various US, Canada, United Kingdom and European Union government agencies, environmental groups and human rights groups and has been found to be completely safe — there is no risk of long-term hearing damage from The Mosquito,” according to MST, which notes the devices are designed to run at 5 decibels above background noise levels.10

As for their potential to interfere with human rights, Simon Morris, director of Compound Security, defended their use, telling CNN:11

“We’re all parents as well … The Mosquito was born out of our children suffering because they were attacked or assaulted at local shops by older kids. We’ve never had the intention of curbing anybody’s rights. People have the freedom to walk away from the sound and the sound is highly targeted into a very small area.”

Music Used as Control Tools

Aside from the high-frequency noise being emitted by the Mosquito, other devices emit sounds in the form of music, also as a tool for control. In West Palm Beach, Florida, songs including “Baby Shark” are played from loudspeakers to deter homeless people from sleeping near an event center.12

Classical music is also used as a crime deterrent. In London, when music was played in tube stations, it’s said that robbery rates dropped by 33%, while verbal and physical abuse incidents also declined.13 In Germany, atonal music, which lacks harmony and can sound like random noise, was going to be played in train stations to deter loitering, but the idea was abandoned following widespread public criticism.14

Ultrasonic sounds, with frequencies of 20 kHz or more, also exist,15 and sonic attacks have been rumored to have occurred.16 This frequency is higher than most adults can hear, but it’s thought that some people may be sensitive to adverse effects from exposure, including headaches, nausea and tinnitus, or ringing in the ears.17 Tim Leighton, a professor of ultrasonics at University of Southampton, told CNN:18

“In the 1940s people started complaining about ultrasonic sickness, with symptoms like headache, excessive fatigue (and) irritability. The first legal case was in 1948 … A high frequency above 20 kilohertz, if you can hear it, will affect you for sure.

It can affect your concentration, your ability to do tasks, give you headaches (and) make you uncomfortable. We haven’t been allowed, under our ethical guidelines, to look for stronger effects. It’s almost likely that stronger signals will lead to a temporary, perhaps even permanent loss of hearing. But we can’t test for that because it would be unethical for us to expose people to that.”

How Noise Pollution Affects Your Health

Noise pollution, which is defined as “unwanted or disturbing sound,” affects millions of people, leading to adverse health effects. Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most obvious effects that can occur from exposure to persistent or loud noise, but other unexpected health effects also occur, including:19

  • High blood pressure
  • Stress and related illnesses
  • Speech interference
  • Sleep disruption
  • Lost productivity

Further, according to research published in Environmental Health Perspectives, long-term exposure to traffic noise may account for approximately 3% of coronary heart disease deaths (or about 210,000 deaths) in Europe each year.20 How, exactly, does noise harm your heart?

One of the key ways is by elevating stress hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline, which, over time, can lead to high blood pressure, stroke and heart failure. One review of research showed that “arousal associated with nighttime noise exposure increased blood and saliva concentrations of these hormones even during sleep.”21

Deepak Prasher, a professor of audiology at University College in London and a member of the WHO Noise Environmental Burden on Disease working group, states:22

“Many people become habituated to noise over time… The biological effects are imperceptible, so that even as you become accustomed to the noise, adverse physiological changes are nevertheless taking place, with potentially serious consequences to human health … Taken together, recent epidemiologic data show us that noise is a major stressor that can influence health through the endocrine, immune, and cardiovascular systems.”

The impact can be significant. Among women who judge themselves to be sensitive to noise, chronic noise exposure increased the risk of cardiovascular mortality significantly.23

Using Noise for Good

Noise can be used to promote your health, just as it can be used against it. One example of positive noise is pink noise, which contains frequencies from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz, just like white noise, but the lower frequencies are louder and more powerful than the higher frequencies (white noise, in contrast, has equal power in all of its frequencies).24

Research published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience revealed that listening to pink noise could improve sleep and memory among 60- to 84-year-olds, a population that tends to have reduced slow wave sleep, or deep sleep, compared to younger individuals.25 While spending the night in a sleep lab, participants listened to pink noise one night and no noise the next.

Notably, the pink noise was played in bursts to match the timing of participants’ slow wave sleep. Not only did the pink noise enhance slow wave sleep, it also was linked to better scores on memory tests.

The participants scored about three times better on memory tests the morning after listening to pink noise in their sleep.26 Pink noise, for reference, is a gentle sound similar to that of rushing water or wind blowing through leaves on a tree.

How to Protect Yourself From Nuisance Noise

The upside to devices like the Mosquito is that you should (in theory at least) be able to avoid them by moving away from their targeted locale. If you live in a very noisy area, such as near a highway or airport, you may want to consider moving.

If that’s not an option, consider adding acoustical tile to your ceiling and walls to buffer the noise. Double-paneled windows and insulation can also help. At the very least, you can sound-treat your home by adding heavy curtains to your windows and rugs to your floors, and by sealing air leaks.

If noise is an issue only occasionally, sound-blocking headphones can eliminate such disturbances. You can also add beneficial noise to your home. Pink noise CDs are available, or you can also simply turn on a fan in your bedroom to block out noise disturbances and instead take advantage of this beneficial type of noise.

Chlorophyll: How to Get This Valuable Nutrient From Foods

Photosynthesis is the process wherein green plants or vegetables absorb light from the sun and transform it, along with minerals, water and carbon dioxide, into food to help them grow. It goes without saying that this is important not just to plants, but to humans and animals well. Oxygen, the chemical element that living organisms require to breathe, is a byproduct of this food-making process.1

At the heart of photosynthesis is chlorophyll, a pigment that absorbs blue and some red portions of the electromagnetic spectrum that causes it to become green. This also results in plants getting their distinctive color.2 As chlorophyll absorbs the light, it creates carbohydrates that serve as the plant’s nourishment.3

An interesting thing about chlorophyll is that it possesses potential health benefits that people can obtain when they consume vegetables. According to a study published in 2016, chlorophyll possesses antioxidant properties that may help promote longevity.4 With this in mind, no doubt most people may benefit from the chlorophyll that comes from vegetables, and luckily, there are plenty of choices that you can enjoy.

The Best Natural Sources of Chlorophyll You Should Munch On

You may not know it, but the green vegetables you eat have some chlorophyll in them, so you can gain chlorophyll’s potential benefits if you eat these vegetables regularly. That being said, some sources contain more chlorophyll than others. If you want to maximize this nutrient, I suggest consuming the following:5

  • Spinach
  • Asparagus
  • Beet greens
  • Green bell peppers
  • Bok choy
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Green cabbage
  • Celery
  • Collard greens
  • Cucumbers
  • Kale
  • Swiss chard
  • Romaine lettuce

Not only do these vegetables contain generous amounts of chlorophyll, they are also rich in other nutrients that may help optimize your health further. Broccoli, for example, contains isothiocyanates that may help lower your risk of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.6

However, some people may not be able to enjoy vegetables due to the risk of developing allergic reactions. This condition is known as oral allergy syndrome (OAS), and is sometimes called pollen-food syndrome. It occurs whenever you consume certain fruits, vegetables and nuts with distinctive proteins that cause swelling in the mouth, windpipe and back of the throat.7

Studies That Examine Chlorophyll’s Potential Health Benefits

Chlorophyll has been extensively studied for its effect on human health for years, and it has been found to be potentially helpful in certain situations. By consuming vegetables high in chlorophyll, you may obtain the following benefits:

Lower your risk of cancer — Chlorophyll may help lower your risk of cancer by inducing apoptosis, according to a research published in Nutrition Research.8 In one documented study, the pigment has been found to help specifically with colon cancer.9

Manage arthritis — Evidence has shown that chlorophyll has anti-inflammatory properties that may benefit people affected with chronic inflammation. In the journal Inflammation, researchers discovered that chlorophyll helped inhibit TNF-? (tumor necrosis factor-alpha) in mice.10

TNF-? is a pro-inflammatory cytokine “produced by macrophages/monocytes during acute inflammation and is responsible for a diverse range of signaling events within cells, leading to necrosis or apoptosis.”11

Fight free radicals — According to the Journal of Food Science, dietary chlorophyll contains antioxidant and antimutagenic properties that may benefit your health by fighting free radicals throughout your body.12

Promote longevity — Consuming chlorophyll may help slow down aging and rejuvenate your cells, according to a study published in Peer-Reviewed & Open Access. Researchers found that feeding chlorophyll to nematodes from the Caenorhabditis elegans species helped increase their lifespan by increasing resistance to oxidative stress.13

Kill pathogenic yeast — Oral thrush, a mouth disease caused by the yeast strain Candida albicans, may be treated by consuming chlorophyll, according to a study conducted by the South Brazilian Dentistry Journal.14

Manage your weight — Chlorophyll may help manage your weight and prevent overeating by helping control your hunger and food cravings. In one study, researchers fed 20 moderately overweight women meals that contained chlorophyll. Results indicate that the procedure was able to help suppress test subjects’ hunger by intensifying signals of satiety.15

Reduce body odor — If you’ve been experiencing fishy body odor lately (trimethylaminuria), you may benefit from chlorophyll. It may help eliminate bad odor by reducing the amount of thrimethylamines excreted by your body.16 In a study that involved 62 geriatric nursing home patients, chlorophyll was found to be helpful in this regard, and even helped ease chronic constipation as a positive side effect.17

Side Effects of Chlorophyll Supplements Can Be Uncomfortable

Chlorophyll supplements are generally considered safe, according to a 2014 study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements. However, side effects have been reported, such as:18

  • Urine changes — Your urine may turn green.
  • Skin reactions — Photosensitive rashes may appear after taking chlorophyll supplements.
  • Gastrointestinal issues — There’s a possibility to develop diarrhea.

Very little research exists about the effects of chlorophyll on children and pregnant or breastfeeding women. In light of this information, I do not recommend giving chlorophyll supplements to young children or taking them while you’re pregnant. Similarly, not much is known about the interactions of chlorophyll with other drugs.19

In any case, if you do happen to develop any of the side effects mentioned above, consult with your doctor immediately.

Instead of Supplements, Opt for Green Veggies First

It’s no secret that vegetables are good for everyone’s health due to their mixture of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Furthermore, they contain chlorophyll that may help optimize your health further.

If you’re consuming a diverse selection of vegetables on a regular basis, you’re already doing a great job eating a healthy diet. Your body is taking in all their nutrients and synthesizing them to help you maintain optimal health and enjoy your life. For those who are not eating enough vegetables, I urge you to increase your consumption to help lower the risk of health problems.

However, there are certain situations that may prevent you from enjoying vegetables, such as if you have allergies to these foods.20 If this is the case, a chlorophyll supplement may work in your favor.

Frequently Asked Questions About Chlorophyll

Q: What does chlorophyll do?

A: Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in plants that facilitates photosynthesis by absorbing sunlight.21 Its potential therapeutic benefits include protection from bad breath, among other things.22

Q: Do fungi have chlorophyll?

A: No, fungi do not have their own chlorophyll because they are not plants and do not undergo photosynthesis. Fungi take food from their immediate surroundings, while plants can make their own food through photosynthesis.23

Q: What does chlorophyll do in photosynthesis?

A: Chlorophyll is a molecule that absorbs sunlight and uses that energy to synthesize carbon dioxide and water to create food for plants. This entire process is known as photosynthesis.24

Q: Where in the chloroplast is chlorophyll found?

A: Chloroplasts are the tiny energy factories found inside plant cells. Inside them is chlorophyll.25

Particle Physicist: "5G is the Ultimate Directed Energy Weapon System"

by Richard Enos

Dr. Katherine Horton sees the current rollout of the 5G network in a way that is different from mainstream perception. And for good reason.

To begin with, she is a particle physicist with a PhD from prestigious Oxford University. She worked as a high energy physicist on the particle collider at the German Electronsynchrotron DESY in Hamburg, Germany, and on the infamous Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

At Oxford, Dr. Horton worked as a research fellow at St John’s College, a position that allowed her to expand her research from particle physics into medical physics and the physics of complex human systems. As part of the latter, she conducted systems analysis research of the English legal system, economies, the financial system, currencies, as well as white collar crime and organised crime.

How Not To Lose Your Mind In The World Which Is Always Teaching Us Its Truth

By Guest Writer Frank Hamilton,


In our modern, busy world, it is very easy to lose your head and forget who you are and what you are doing. However, if we could only understand and realize that everything is connected, maybe we could find something that could help us. Here is how not to lose your mind in the world which is always teaching us its truth.

Collective Consciousness

Collective consciousness is the key to becoming more balanced and making your life more harmonized. It covers everything from our relationship with society to our connection with nature. We have to finally realize our connection through the collective consciousness in order to prevent a crisis from happening on a global scale.

We have to get the necessary education to be able to transform from our individual perception to collective consciousness. It will help us connect positively in a world that is primarily interdependent and interconnected.

The Unified Network

In order to be more aware of the world we live in, we have to understand that we are all a part of a collective, unified network that is nature. At the moment, we seem to not be able to perceive and sense this network which prevents us from seeing a completely different world and society.

Nature is a part of the universe just like we are a part of nature. Once we see and understand the laws of nature that happen every day on small and big scales, we will discover the interdependence and interconnectedness of everything in nature.

Nature has four primary levels: still, vegetative, animate, and human. We are a part of nature and exist on one or more of these levels both as a society and as individuals. Even though it may seem like we are independent and are separate from nature, as we develop we actually discover the laws that guide our development and the interconnectedness of everything.

Our Mission

After we discover and understand nature’s interdependence and interconnectedness, we must resemble it as a society. We are a part of this interconnected world, this bond between nature and society, and in order to function properly, we have to strengthen this bond by acting accordingly. Look at everything from the side, and you will realize how interdependent we are.

You can change an event by bringing the observer of the event into it. It doesn’t matter whether the event takes place in outer space or within the microcosm. In any case, this shows the dependence between the human and the still levels of nature.

The moment we discover this interconnected network, we must start improving ourselves to correspond to it. We will keep experiencing problems because of our imbalance and opposition to nature. The more imbalanced with the network we are, the more problems we will experience.

This imbalance is creating a global human crisis that is happening on all kinds of levels and in every field: personal, social, global, economic, and ecological. This crisis has intensified over the last few decades as we keep increasing the degree of our imbalance with the network.

The crisis keeps seeping into every aspect of human experience. We start feeling more stressed, anxious, and insecure. There is more pressure around us that causes regular and unending conflict. This conflict is expressed both in the conflict with each other and in the internal conflict with nature and everything around us.

Look around you. What do you see? There is an increase amount of drug abuse, crime, suicide, terrorism… More people feel depressed and lonely. There are more divorces and more instances of mental illness. Economic inequality is more widespread than ever. And these are only some negative phenomena to list.

We are a part of something bigger yet we continue acting like we are not connected to anyone and anything. We don’t yearn to find balance and harmony which results in us forgetting to adapt to the new conditions. We must change inside so that the crisis outside doesn’t worsen.

The Grand Result

After we reach a balance and understand our interconnectedness with nature, we will discover another dimension. We can’t access this additional force in our current individual modes of operation, but once join our forces and efforts, we will be able to positively connect with one another and find that harmony.

If we connect the same way that nature is connected, we will be able to tap into this power. Imagine that we will be able to “invite” new thoughts and ideas as well as wisdom from another dimension. We will gain the ability to understand things beyond time, space, and motion. We would enter a state of being fully interconnected and interdependent with nature.

We are currently at our animal stage of existence, but we must push ourselves to the human stage. Nature is already pushing us to it, but we must combine our efforts nonetheless. At the animal stage, we only care for ourselves as individuals, but once we reach the human stage, we will start caring for our society as a whole. We will experience a happy and harmonious life with nature.

One’s Self’s Discovery

In nature, there is no such thing as “disappear”. Nothing disappears in nature but passes from one thing to the other. This means that even when we die, our consciousness passes from us to another carrier. When that carrier dies, it passes on to the next one, and so on.

This interconnectedness of everything is the reason why our individual consciousness continues living on even after we die. The individual consciousness of each person is a part of the collective consciousness. When we die, it changes its structure.

But before we were born, our consciousness already existed and lived in someone else. It then passed on to us as a piece from the collective consciousness. Its structure is made of the information and we took this information that makes up our individual consciousness.

The informational connection exists beyond time and surpasses the limitations of the universe. Information never disappears but changes its medium, form, and carrier. We cannot say for sure in what form it currently exists and where it is located in this very moment.

We can influence the scope of our consciousness by simply wanting to expand it. As we are on the animal stage, our consciousness desires only certain things a person can have in this world: food, sex, family, wealth, fame, knowledge, and power.

It’s difficult to change our consciousness and aim it at different goals, but it is possible. When we find ourselves in the proper environment, we can achieve things that we could never even so much as dream about.


In order not to get lost or lose your mind, we have to understand the true meaning of collective consciousness and how nature and everything around is interconnected. And then, we must also balance ourselves to connect to this unified network and function as a whole society.
