The YoniVerse--Part 2

So, if the big yang bang isn't what's really going on, then what is? I am sure many of us have asked the questions "who am I?", "where did I come from?" and "where did the universe come from?", as well as many others. It is very difficult to answer these questions from the androcentric files of information we have all been fed for eons because these files are skewed beyond belief, and, ironically, some skewed beliefs have become facts. I am not sure if anyone really knows for sure that there was one big bang. But many astrophysicists insist on it. Eastern religion speaks of unending cycles of creation and dissolution. If Westsern linear science focuses only on a part of a great cycle of creation it could look like that all of a sudden there was a big something that happened from nothing. However, nothing is not nothing. It is "no thing-ness", which is different than nothing, zip, zilch. From my perspective, this emergence of somethingness is more like a flowering or crystallization of potential. It is not violent and it is not menacing. It is the same process that brings a flower into bloom. Modern astrophysics would have us believe that we live in a violent universe filled with all things in constant cataclysmic crashing and burning as if the universe is at war with itself. The view of the patriarchal mind set (pms, by the way), based on fear, dualism and separation, projects these notions of violent creation onto science as if they are of course normal and correct. These are the same projections that create violence in the everyday experience of life the world over. If we think that the universe in which we live is a violent one, how can our outlook about life possibly be any different?

Thank Goddess, I don't subscribe to a violent universe theory.  I feel the YoniVerse is actually a magical benevolent female beingness. Because we are alive, we must come from a source that is also alive, which is not separate from us. We are Source.  I have recently discovered some other ideas about our origins, some of which have been around for a long time,  that I was never taught, and I am sure most people have not been as well. One view I have found deep resonance with is aether theory, or Akashic theory.  Some meanings of Akasha are "shining", "aether", "space."  As an early hippie back in the day, I learned about the Akashic records from psychedelic excursions into the unknown, where doors of perception opened and my consciosness expanded in ways that I could have never imagined. I delved into studies in Eastern religion as well as shamanism, and I have learned that all roads lead home--and home is the abode of Love. Aether/Akashic theory has come to the same conclusion, and the brilliance of the science is that it intersects  the spiritual and reveals that there is indeed no separation. All is Love. In aether theory, creation is seen as eternal, and non-violent where there is no big bang.  Why is a "theory" such as this one not taught? In the West, it has been around for about 100 years, but for our ancestors, it was understood long before that. Aether is often referred to as the fifth element and is said to emerge from a fourth dimension according to Paul La Violette, author of Genesis of the Cosmos:  
     "La Violette believes that the cosmology of the ancients is a better alternative that does not suffer from the Big Bang’s singularity problems. According to many ancient cosmologies, the universe evolved over billions of years as a result of a continuous process of matter and energy creation from a supposedly fourth dimensional realm, the aether. This creation process has never ceased and still continues today according to La Violette. To sustain his claims, he explains that the universe at heart is not a closed but an open system and is able to receive energy and matter from a fourth dimension without contradicting the laws of thermodynamics. From these observations, Paul La Violette reasoned that the aether may likewise spawn wave patterns from two aether states, two different aetherons, which continuously mutate from one state into the other and visa versa. In normal cases, the aether maintains its equilibrium state due to the second law of thermodynamics, however under critical conditions these aether transmutations... may become self-organising and form stable wave patterns. These wave patterns will become observable in our physical universe as electromagnetic energy, light." (

LaViolette is telling us that we live in an electromagnetic universe that is constantly creating and re-creating itself through restructuring, or de-structuring.  I once had a mentor who told me that electricity is "God in action." I would say "Goddess" in action is a brilliant dance enacted by aether and matter in total oneness and harmony. There is no separation or duality to worry about and mistakenly believe in. 

And, from the same website, "The A-field of torsion waves may be new to science but its existence has been known for thousands of years in the East. The only new thing about it is that it is being rediscovered by western science. Eastern spiritual tradition has named this field the Akasha field. Akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning radiating or shining, it’s a synonym for aether. Akasha is the womb of creation bringing forth every physical aspect that can be perceived with the senses according to eastern traditions. In ancient eastern spirituality the history written within the Akasha field are called the Askashic chronicles, the book of life that records everything that has ever happened or will happen in the universe. The Akashic chronicles or Akashic records contain the story of every soul that ever lived on this planet." (ibid)

When I read the reference here to Akasha as "womb", I was blown away. Where do we ever encounter science referring to anything that has to do with creation using this metaphor of pure primal femaleness? It is a far different vision than the one we have been exposed to for too long--that of the massive violent ejaculation whose particles don't result in elegant creation but rather massive collisions and fiery destruction. Womb creation just feels better. And it's smarter. Incredibly smarter.
