An Overview of Ramtha’s Science and His View of Reality
by Bruce A. Smith

Bruce A. SmithThe following is an excerpt from my forthcoming book, The New Physics – An Introduction to the Science of Consciousness. What follows is Chapter 5, a part of an on-going series here at the Mountain News.


Ramtha – An Overview of his Science and View of Reality

For those leery of Ramtha, believe me I can appreciate your anxieties. I have had my own moments of doubts that Ramtha’s school was a cult, his channel JZ Knight was faking it, or felt dismayed by the financial cost of attending RSE.

So, what I propose here is that I walk you through my journey of how I came to know Ramtha, discovered he is a great teacher, and what I have learned from him. Hopefully, that will give you a context in which to consider his science regardless of any mis-giving you might have about him.

I first heard about Ramtha in the autumn of 1988. One day, a sixteen-page, tabloid-sized newspaper titled Windwords mysteriously appeared in my mailbox. It described the doings of an entity named Ramtha, the Enlightened One, and the teachings he was presenting at his School of Enlightenment in Yelm, Washington.

The paper said that Ramtha called himself “The Lord of the Wind,” and Windwords was a poetic metaphor to herald the teachings of Ramtha.

To this day, I still remember vividly what occurred next.

I brought all my mail into my home office, but started off by reading Windwords. I skimmed through the transcriptions of Ramtha’s actual teachings as they looked pretty dense to me, and instead glommed onto a profile describing a couple who had moved to Yelm to study full-time with Ramtha and prepare for “The Days to Come,” a cataclysmic future brought on by an environmental apocalypse.

Those notions appealed to me, and I read intently. At the time I was a commercial beachcleaner in New York, and very active in the environmental community. Even then – in the late 1980s – I was very aware of global climate change and rising sea-levels.

Plus, the prior year I had shared a plane ride with a NY-NJ Port Authority engineer enroute to Charleston, South Caroline for “Coastal Zone ’87,” a professional gathering of scientists, governmental leaders, and guys like me to discuss beach pollution, coast-line erosion, and maritime development pressures.

See Venus and the Moon Pair Up at Dawn on Sunday
Early risers are in for a treat early Sunday morning (May 25), when the two brightest objects in the night sky will approach each other to make for a lovely celestial scene. Looking low toward the east beginning at around 4:30 a.m. local eastern daylight time, you'll see a narrow waning crescent moon, just 12 percent illuminated. Situated about 2 degrees below and to its left will be the brilliant planet Venus. Your clenched fist held at arm's length measures roughly 10 degrees across, so moon and planet will be separated by just a finger's width or so. By the time sunrise comes about an hour later, this eye-catching pair will still appear rather low — about one-fifth of the way up from the east horizon to the point directly overhead (the zenith). Keep in mind that when you’re looking at the moon, it lies some 236,000 miles (380,000 kilometers) from Earth. Meanwhile, Venus is much farther away — 107.6 million miles (173.2 million km). Here's a question you might want to ponder early Sunday as you gaze at the duo: Which is the brighter of the two?

Do Coal Companies Have More Rights Than Voters?

Early in April, coal industry executive Shaun McCutcheon won big when the Supreme Court swept away limits on how much money wealthy donors can contribute to federal political campaigns. But in St. Louis, Mo., coal interests are trying to prevent people from even voting. This story began when ordinary citizens joined together and took a stand against both climate change and their city’s destructive practice of granting enormous tax breaks to big business while cutting funding for public services. They talked to thousands of residents who were upset that St. Louis keeps giving away tens of millions of dollars of badly needed public money to Peabody Energy (the world’s largest private-sector coal company) and the lobbyists, banks, and law firms that enable it. And after hearing over and over again that “there oughta be a law” against corporate welfare for polluters, they did what we learned in civics class: they wrote a law that would ban public financial incentives to unsustainable energy producers and their major business partners.

Something Worth Knowing

Energy-Smart Ways to Cool Your Home? Look to the Past
On days when the mercury hits 90 degrees and keeps rising, it’s almost instinctive to reach for the HVAC control. Most folks in the US, especially in warm, humid states, can’t imagine life without their air conditioning. But A/C has only been in use in private houses for the past 80 years. How did human beings beat the heat before then, and what can this teach us about environmentally friendly cooling for our homes today?

The earliest method of keeping cool was making use of the earth itself. The area beneath the surface of the soil or rock is not affected by seasonal weather patterns, so sheltering in an underground cave or a grotto hewn from a mountainside provided welcome relief from the heat. Interestingly, when today’s architects use this age-old idea to design energy-saving underground homes, it is considered cutting edge technology.
