Dr. Gary Schwartz is a professor of psychology, neurology, psychiatry, and surgery at the University of Arizona; director of the UA Human Energy Systems Laboratory; and director of the Bioenergy Core at the UA Pediatric Alternative Medicine Research Center. Schwartz believes that human consciousness survives death, and that all objects in nature have memory. Information does not disappear when it goes out into space when a human life ends, he said - it continues and doesn’t lose any of its integrity.
Schwartz claimed that there is a type of physicality in the afterlife, but it’s much more "fluid: People will show themselves in a form that loved ones remember them by, but they have the ability to show themselves in any age of their existence. When you’re dead, you can be in multiple places at the same time, he added.
In the first hour, author Ian Xel Lungold claimed that time is not speeding up, but that creation is. Lungold said he discovered a 15 billion-year-long string of coincidences between the Mayan calendar and the timing of the evolutionary steps of our universe as well as life on Earth. The Mayan calendar has nine different levels of consciousness, and it's why we can prove that creation is accelerating by measuring the levels, he said. This is what Art calls The Quickening. Lungold said so much is occurring in every moment that eventually, everything happens at once, and the illusion of time and space is dissolved.
