Welcome to Circle for Original Thinking, America’s electronic talking circle for visionary thinkers, an open forum for fresh ideas and timeless wisdom applied to today’s political and ecological challenges. Each week we bring together creative thinkers from a variety of different traditions, asking the hard questions on the important issues of the day: political polarization, climate change, virulent viruses, and other symptoms of humanity being out of balance with the natural world. Our goal is to create a new and improved version of E Pluribus Unum, from the many to the one—and this time not leave anybody out. Join us as we embark on this quest.
Einstein once said “linear time is an illusion, but a stubbornly persistent one.“ Have we have been looking at time all wrong – that instead of looking for linear cause and effect we should be looking for relationship? The late Anishaanabe elder Tobasonakwut Kinew thought so. He preferred to think of time as: “What kinds of things want to happen together?”
Is it a coincidence that some of the most innovative researchers into time and dreams think similarly? People like Monte Ullman, James Hillman, and today’s guests, Judy Gardiner and Cynthia Sue Larson, have noticed that our dreams freely cull events from what we call the past, present, and the future into one homeopathic serving. In short, the past, present, and future are all the same; time does not exist in dreams, at least not in the same way that enables us to make our schedules in the light of day. And while dreams are one way to burst the linear bubble of time, there are other ways too. Even while awake we can learn to access interdimensional portals of time that connect with our ancestors in the most creative ways. They may even come back to life — among other ways of sliding back in forth into parallel realities that explode our limited view of time.
And finally, what are the larger consequences of this research?
Can we better understand the ecological and spiritual crisis we now face, earth changes that are coming to fruition, and more, through an expanded awareness of dreams and time? And if we understand what is unfolding now, does it foretell an era of greater peace and harmony on the other side of the chaos? Are we currently in the middle of what German philosopher Gebser called the “irruption of time” and on the other side there is integration – what Gebser called “integral” consciousness? Join us as we go beyond our limited concepts of time, space and dreams to explore the coming breakthrough in consciousness.
Following a corporate career, Judy B. Gardiner set out to explore the bewildering images in her dreams. She began writing, lecturing and conducting workshops on Cosmic Dreaming, a dimension of dreaming which reveals a unified theory of consciousness tying together Science and Spirit. Discovery of ancient knowledge and universal wisdom led her to extensive research which unearthed explanations of science far beyond her waking knowledge. Collaboration with the late Dr. Montague Ullman, acclaimed for his work in REM sleep and ESP birthed the discovery of a bi-directional potential for all dreamers – the ability to observe and connect personal concerns and cosmic events. Judy is now fine-tuning a decades-long research study targeted to the scientific community which explores the interconnection of neural correlates, electromagnetism and corresponding earth and human behaviors. The destination is “planetary consciousness.”
“Life’s experience departs with the enteric soul. This may be called enteric memory. It returns to Earth when the soul, once again, is physicalized. It then becomes cellular memory and resides within the visual cortex, which is activated by the visual reminders of past lifetimes.” Judy Gardiner

“The invitation that we are getting from consciousness and the cosmos is that causality is not unidirectional in time and space; it is based on relationships.” Cynthia Sue Larson
