Richard Grossinger takes us on a Metaphysical journey through the Universe in his new book Dreamtimes and Thoughtforms: Cosmogenesis from the Big Bang to Octopus & Crow Intelligence
Richard Grossinger traverses the mysteries from the origins of the cosmos to the microbiome, the COVID-19 pandemic, UFOs, and the shapeshifting of octopuses and the language of crows and enigmas that define our reality and shows that matter is infused with spirit from its very beginning.
Beginning his narrative with the Big Bang, the origin of the Milky Way, and the birth of our solar system, Grossinger o ers a chronology of Earth’s geological, climatological, biological, and sociological evolution, leading to the current environmental and psychospiritual crisis. Next, he explores the origin of cell life, RNA-DNA, and more giant biomes, particularly the remarkable intelligence of crows and octopuses. Next, he uses the Australian Aborigine Dreamtime to understand landscapes as thoughtforms. He then o ers reimaginings, from the perspective of “dreamings,” of a wide variety of animals, including tardigrades, llamas, sea turtles, pigeons, bees, and coyotes.
Examining the scientific dilemmas and paradoxes of consciousness, time, and quantum entanglement, Grossinger carries these into the range of issues around reincarnation, past-life memories, messages from the afterlife, and ghosts. Sharing exercises from his practice, Grossinger distinguishes between the Buddhist description of reality and how Buddhist practitioners create an operating manual for the Universe and an assured path of salvation. The author then examines UFOs and their connections to elementals, fairies, and cryptids in terms of psychoids, Jung’s time for transconscious processes that enter our world as autonomous entities.
Taking the reader on a journey through the Universe, the seen and unseen, from the Big Bang to the imaginal landscape of Dreamtime, Grossinger shows that matter is infused with spirit from its very beginning.
