Arcanum: Frontiers of Science and the Soul (June 2016)

Season 2, Episode 4
Available worldwide

William Henry expands our views of the soul and ascension by exploring what the scientists from CERN have discovered about the god particle. The ancients knew a great deal about the nature of the soul and depicted the process of ascension through visual metaphors relevant to their particular cultures. We find striking parallels to these ancient concepts of transcendence within the very frontiers of modern science. This presentation was originally webcast June 23, 2016.

I don't have enough, not could I even start trying...writing the infinite thanks I give you for what you give.

This assumption falls flat somewhat in context and only contains half a truth. Consider Jeremiah 1:5 "I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations." English Standard. Now, it may be argued, however inadequately, that he was somehow more special and set apart from the rest of Creation, but that ascertain won't work either. He was a part of us before the Shattering of the Vessel. For this information you must return to the Sepher Ha Zohar. Suffice it to say that it is our fall from grace and the reason why we remain unrecognizable to each other as to who we really are, and subsequently, helped along by the Cabal to keep us all separate. You know, divide and conquer. In fact, that statement of Creator choosing Souls prior to incarnation occurs throughout the Old Testament.

As to the creation of the soul; its cosmology is in three parts. You weren't entirely incorrect. You have the upper soul: Neshamah indicating the Divine Soul and being consistent with its Divine nature is composed of fire. Now, you have a lower soul: Nefesh indicating the animal soul wherein is found the Personality and Ego which begins at birth and ends at death. (There is much more to this than the cursory explanation than I'm offering here.) The Kabbalists state that it will 'Bruise thy heel' indicating the Serpents bite, or in other words, the instillation of the Evil Inclination and it begins at birth with the Nefesh. Again, this is found in the Sepher Ha Zohar, The section known as Bereshith I believe; an interpretation of Genesis, as well as, Deuteronomy. Nefesh being consistent with the lower worlds is composed, or probably more accurately symbolic of water. As in, "And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." Gen. 1:2. Spirit: Ruach moved upon... etc" Thereby placing water under Spirit. These compositions are important when discussing Adam, viz. Man becoming a a Living Soul. The Divine Spirit is Ruach composed of air, that's why God "Breathed into Adam's nostril the breath of Life." Ok, to sum up: Nehamah=Fire and Nefesh=Water these are the upper and lower parts of Soul and would certainly, and I'm sure you would agree, would annihilate each other. Hence the reason for the instillation of Ruach=Air betwixt the upper and the lower.

I know this will most likely never be read. But that's cool. I just needed to get this off my chest. Your information, in my opinion. was both lacking and misleading and needed to be dealt with.

instead of orbs of cheese couldn't the painting by Hildegarde be orbs of light beings?

I am so pleased to see that Arcanum has returned! I so enjoyed the first season and have been thrilled beyond words with this current season!

We're so pleased too! I love William Henry and all the wisdom he has to offer. I'm so glad you are enjoying the second season :)

Thank you, William Henry. This was absolutely beautiful.

William's gift is to weave together a lot of information - cultural, historical, mythological, religious, psychological, and scientific - from the artifacts of humanity: art and literature (sacred and secular, non-fiction and fiction ). This helps us see a bigger picture of humanity's quest for understand its origins and its evolution, across cultures and time. Beliefs do not equal Truth and limited minds surrender to the idolatry of belief based on a piece of the picture rather than the whole picture. We didn't have much of this ability in the past, but many are beginning to move from this narrow belief perspective to a holistic perspective. Obviously an overview is just that, its not the full content, but hopefully inspires us to begin to think more holistically. Probably the oldest prayer is goes something like this: Lead us O, Lord, from darkness to Light, from the unreal to the Real, from death to Immortality, from chaos to Beauty. Here is how I interpret this prayer: Lord is another word for leader or teacher; darkness is ignorance of the Light or ability to see the Whole; the unreal is the illusion of a mistaken or partial reality and the Real is seeing the Whole (Holy, Perfect, Complete); death is the destructive nature of false beliefs about who and what exists in nature and Immortality is Knowing the Self as the Whole; chaos is the confusion associated with thinking the unreal is the Real - with believing the part is the whole, that the limited mind is the Whole Mind and living in Beauty is the result of seeing the Whole (Holiness, Completeness, Perfection. Reality = Truth.

All of this sounds like humanity's explanation of how things work...

I have a book titled Celestial Gallery Mandala and Meditations. Amitabha: The Buddha of Infinite light

the Merkaba transport and or blue sphere. this author refers to it as the Sukhavati "realm of Bliss"

Also just realized that I drew this in my own fashion (wish I could share the pic) but shows a woman floating in fetal position and the edge of the sphere is braded in rainbow and then pouring from her body feeding the sphere, did that about 2 years ago and never really saw that this is what I drew oil today!

Signs of Ascension are EVERYWHERE

Thank you, looking forward to this series.

The already existing soul could wait until physical birth to attach to the body. That is in the realm of reincarnation thinking. There are accounts of the child later on telling his parents that he saw many of the things they did from above while the mother was pregnant. And some believe that until the umbilical cord is cut, the fetus is just a physical product of the mother's body and isn't a separate entity. After the cord is cut, then it is a separate entity... then it is a human being in it's own right. Also, that is when the first breath of air is taken. So, there are religious texts that say that it is with the first breath of air that the soul enters the body. Makes sense because the last breath of air is when the soul leaves it. In light of this scenario, it would make the issue of abortion a non-issue.

Much more going on in CERN than all the "wonderful" things William Henry applauds. He doesn't begin to go into the other occult side of CERN. Won't be watching any more of his material.

I was wondering about his integrity also.

Thank you Gaia and William Henry for sharing this knowldge with all of us. This is the kind of learning that our race on this earth plain should be really looking into. Gaia is the place to be in this new time with Accession, so close at hand.

I really love the way William Henry explains such important, mind-expanding information in such a beautiful and humble way. He is a great teacher for us here on earth. There is no law higher than truth and it shall prevail! Simply WONDER-FULL and looking forward to the next dots to connect, thank you for showing this quality show.

I like this show A LOT!!! Bible does not say the soul goes in at conception. There are a only a few lines about the subject in the whole book. "I knit you in your mother's womb" does not say conception. I hope you will check your bible information, Its pretty loose. You can write me if you want to check your bible facts. I studied that book every day for 13 years. You may consider to get someone like that to help you. I was a born again and many of us read that book backwards and forwards. You had another error when u were on Wilcox show. I love this show.... as an artist and philosopher.... is fantastic! Love it.....

From law of one
The violet-ray body may perhaps be understood as what you might call the Buddha body or that body which is complete.

Buddha need to come again to teach in all language.

Wow, I'm blown away, William. In such a short time for this presentation you have covered a great deal of information. I love the way you present your research and interpretations. You are indeed a great teacher and master of the divine knowledge. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, findings, and the beautiful artwork of the soul and its journey.
