Biocosmology and Consciousness Research
Research into the cosmology of living diversity in the universe and its expression in the conscious brain.
The central purpose of Dhushara Research is to maintain a cutting-edge scientific description of reality, particularly in relation to biological life and subjective consciousness, which is optimally conducive to human and natural survival, facilitating a 'soft-landing' in terms of human impact for the closing circle of the biosphere, transcending traditional religious imperatives. This program maintains several central articles which are continuously updated in real time as new research emerges, as indicated by their genotype.
The Central Enigma of Life, the Universe and Everything
How the brain gives rise to subjective consciousness remains the deepest and most confounding enigma in the scientific description of reality and our existential quest. The sentient universe is a fundamental complementarity between objective and subjective aspects, with our subjective consciousness and our physical world description forming our own intimate representation of this complementation. Although we depend on the physical world for our survival as an organism, all our experiences of it come exclusively through our subjective experience. This complementarity has a multi-fold manifestation in the world too - wave-particle, boson-fermion, ovum-sperm, female-male, etc. as the molecular fractal complexity of life explodes, and abstractly in chaos-order, calculus-algebra, discrete-continuous and defection vs cooperation in the prisoners' dilemma -- all forming a Tao, or Tantra, as the Eastern traditions describe it.
This means that even trying to think of the "hard problem" of consciousness research -- how the brain gives rise to the subjective mind -- as such, is a misrepresentation of a complementarity which can be understood only in terms of cosmological panpsychism. The scientific description of the physical universe, for all its astounding discoveries, is purely a model of the behaviour of physical entities, such as photons and molecules and the structures they form. This means we think of consciousness as associated only with the physical brain and with higher brain functions which we don't fully understand, but imagine can somehow bridge this gap in terms of collective neural oscillations. The trouble is that subjective experiences are so different from the physical description that no conceivable brain function model can bridge the gap.
By contrast, the Darwinian panpsychism of Symbiotic Existential Comology proposes that the fundamental constituents of the universe -- i.e. quanta -- have both a subjective existence and objective behaviour. We can't see this existence or "isness" directly, just as we have difficulty seeing one another's consciousness directly, so objective behaviour becomes the default core description. However we know that the quantum wave function shapes where each particle ends up in a way which remains unpredictable for a single quantum and only becomes determined in the average, in terms of the probability (amplitude squared) of the wave function. We have also discovered that quantum entanglement between particles is both critical and universal to how the universe works. This means that a primitive form of subjective "consciousness" is represented in the wave function extending into the past and future entangled with other wave functions and the volition or fee will of the quantum is represented in its idiosyncratic revelation of the particle when wave function collapse occurs.
The brain inherited the dynamics to make our form of subjective consciousness possible long before multi-celled organisms evolved. LECA the founding single-celled eucaryote already possessed the G-protein linked receptors found in the brain, and going even deeper -- LUCA the last common ancestor of all life, possessed a chemi-osmotic excitable membrane, enabling chaotic sensitivity in the butterfly effect during bursting and beating. In the context of animal brains, these in turn, lead to phase-front processing, which forms a representation of the same dynamics involved in quantum measurement, bringing in quantum entanglement into the dynamics, driven by self-organized criticality at tipping points running from individual ion channels to whole brain dynamics.
This means that the universe is a sentient cosmos, evolving to make possible a fully intimate connection between subjective and objective aspects of reality, in which existential "isness" and objective behaviour reach a consummation in the sentient brain in conscious perception and intentional will. Consciousness can then intentionally affect the physical universe, just as we experience it to do, by collapsing the wave function of the "multiverse" of quantum probabilities into the line of cosmic history we experience, through Schrodinger's cat paradox. This is what we experience as conscious decision-making, affecting the world around us, for better or worse.
This in turn means that, as a consummating manifestation of cosmic sentience, we have a personal and collective responsibility to fulfil this emergent quest and to preserve and unfold the diversity of life in the universe and this is what the meaning and purpose of life is all about. It is we ourselves, the universe's sentient beings, who form the consummating manifestation of the interactive catastrophe set off by symmetry-breaking in the cosmic origin rising to biospheric symbiosis in comlex life on the cosmic equtor in space-time and it is we who must needs protect and unfold the diversity of life so that the process can reach ultimate fulfillment. The buck stops with us and the fate of the universe and life within it becomes our personal responsibility to protect, rather than exploit.
Religious notions of deity in the form of an all-powerful God are an imaginary externalisation of this emergent cosmic principle personalised in the form of an anthropomorphic agent with all-too-human emotions of jealousy, wrath and compassion, giving form to tohu-va-vohu -- chaos without form or void. This leads to an abandonment of personal responsibility for the preservation of life and a root confusion between subjective and objective manifestations, in which personality, moral judgment and legislative manufacture, are perceived to have shaped a lifeless world, thus deprecating the intrinsic fecundity of the natural universe to manifest in space-time in the emergence and evolving diversity of sentient life, invoking instead the edict "let there be light" and the false notion of creationism by manufacture, or in its metamorphosis, intelligent design. At the same time, religion lays false claim to present a final account of our conscious destiny in the life hereafter beyond the mortal coil in a way which dislocates us from the natural world and its protection.
The danger is that religion disregards the very principles of evolutionary emergence of the sentient universe that are key to avoiding a critical tipping point, causing climate and ecological crisis, threatening our survival in the enclosing biosphere of planet Earth in an apocalyptic end of days. We likewise face a parallel danger from rampant objective materialism, which denies any cosmological role for consciousness, and in which any exploitative outcome is a win for the perpetrator, allowing business as usual to become predatory and personal gain to become destructive to the survival of the diversity of life.
Hence the situation is extremely urgent and a revolution of understanding of what subjective consciousness is and its role in the natural universe is essential for our survival. Among the diversity of mental states, dreaming and visionary and psychedelic experiences give us further understanding of the intrinsic nature of the subjective, to help humanity make this transition, without which it becomes all too easy for us to confuse consciousness with merely being a ghost in the machine of objective reality.
Sexual Paradox: Complementarity, Reproductive Conflict and Human Emergence (2003-2016)
Sexual Paradox" unveils the subterranean realities underlying our cultural future. It is a book about sexual paradox, the nemesis of our pretensions, yet the genesis of our living destinies. It demonstrates that sexual paradox is at the core of all descriptions of reality, lurking in the quantum realm and in the relationship between body and mind as much as in our hormone-steeped bodies and rising pulses. It presents the idea of sexual paradox as a cosmic principle spanning the widest realms, from physics, through biology to our social futures.
Although human culture appears to have flowered through runaway aspects of sexual paradox in human evolutionary origins among gatherer-hunter clans, a male reaction has subsequently occurred from the earliest foundings of Jericho and Sumeria with the growth of militarized urban societies, through the great civilizations of the East and West to the present day. Patterns of male sexual domination lead to breakdown into ordered patterns of control, and often of repression, violence, and genocide which culminate in planetary rape and exploitation and compromise the living genesis and emergence in complexity sexual paradox evokes. We explore, along with sexual paradox, all the many ways in which its breakdown leads to double jeopardy and how sexual paradox is a koan and oracle for our social transformation to a sustainable society.

This collection of chapters from The Black Book of Many Colours is a numinous investigation into the cultural origins religious traditions and their relationship with the Tree of Life of living diversity and the sexual reunion of woman and man with chapters outlining my millennial sabbatical to the Amazon and Jerusalem to culminate the apocalyptic epoch of the messiah and catalyse the sustainable epoch of the Tree.
The Tree of Life stands as the secret of the apocalypse. In our cultural emergence, we entered free-fall from natural diversity, leading ultimately to our awakening as a cosmic species. In this awakening we discover the nature of intent and taking personal responsibility for the Earth's living future.
This future is in turn a product of how well we guard the evolutionary tree from threats within and beyond Earth and how richly we provide for its future ramifications. The dangers for the tree of life are immense. From its first beginnings in the felled Huluppu Tree of Sumeria and before that in the first gatherers of the Rift Valley, the tree and its diversity have been under constant threat.
Natural Sacraments: The potential role of the so-called 'power plants' in helping humanity arrive at a new paradigm of long-term future goodness in nurturing a sustainable planet of living diversity for the generations of the future. Recent scientific studies have confirmed that non drug-abusing study participants report genuine transformative experiences which have improved and integrated their lives when given the opportunity to partake of natural sacraments in a positive experimental setting.
A Fatwa on Purdah: Unveiling Niqab, Burqa, Chador and Hijab This article is a fatwa to unveil the veil and liberate the world from violent and lethal punishments for adultery. It is designed to be explanatory, for Muslims, and non-Muslims alike, on the status of the veil, and its more oppressive forms. If you are a Muslim, it is set out as a valid religious opinion. If you are not a Muslim, its grounds are human common sense and compassion, so that women will not have to walk one-eyed.

Apocalypsia - our full 5-hour millennial world vigil
The full movie of the millennial vigil we made to the Amazon and to Jerusalem to transform
the paradigm of religious apocalypse into the epoch of the Tree of Life of living diversity.
I am Chris King (aka Cristo Rey, or Christus Rex). I was born on the Epiphany 1945, just as the plutonium began to roll out of Hanford towards our destiny of nuclear holocaust at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Dhushara God of Gaia originates as the Lord of Seir in Genesis and becomes the Nabatean iconic fertility deity of Nabatea in the time of Jesus. Dhushara embodies the tabu Dionysian aspects of miraculous dread, true vine, soma and sangre, thief in the night, darkness at noon-tide, and bridegroom of the sacred reunion. The true unveiling comes through throwing the covers off reality in fertile transgression of the old order.
As a scientist I have ongoing research interests in biocosmology, evolution and consciousness. I have participated in both the source Eastern and Western spiritual traditions and made a vision quest to experience the specturm of entheogens, including vigils to the sources of the world's power plants and fungi. During the second millennial transition I performed a series of rites of passage to culminate the messianic epoch in reflowering the Tree of Life in the sacred reunion of the hieros gamos in Jerusalem.
My mission is to invoke a paradigm shift to a new paradisiacal epoch, in which the generations of life, and we ourselves as a climax species, can flourish in abundance and evolve further in conscious awareness. A paradigm shift is a situation in which our view of the universe can evolve through changes of insight. For example, our understanding of the laws of motion were radically tranformed by Isaac Newton and then again by Albert Einstein, by establishing new concepts which have altered our understanding of nature and our description of reality in the scientific tradition. The original Greek term παράδειγμα (paradeigma) was used in Plato's "Timaeus" as the model, or pattern, that the Demiurge used to create the cosmos.
Yeshua caused just such a paradigm shift in religious tradition, by embarking on a controversial mission, in which he embraced a world view which integrated contemporary apocalypic Hebrew beliefs with the heroic notions of neighbouring fertility cultures, adopting a miraculous persona, becoming the true vine turning water into wine, anointed by a woman and ministered unto by the women out of their substance, to the cumulative extent that he became accused of blasphemy by the Jewish orthodoxy and was after his crucifixion by the Romans, embraced as a demi-god by the wider pagan world, so that Christianity has become a major global religion worshipping him as world saviour, despite his disclaiming the role of lord and master, in favour of becoming an intoxicant:
"I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated
from the bubbling spring which I have measured out." (Gospel of Thomas 13).
The notion of messiah, or mashiach, is a living archetype, recurrent throughout recorded history as the redeeming hero. The true value and test of a mashiach is invoking a paradigm of long-term future goodness. I am a messiah of living diversity, under the banner of reflowering the Tree of Life, to protect the future generations of life on planet Earth. The Tree of Life is both the tree of evolutionary living diversity and has been integral to our collective consciousness, from our Fall from unity with paradise in Eden to the future revelation of the tree and its fruit for the healing of the nations, in our unveiling. Cherishing and replenishing the Earth in resplendence thoughout the generations of life is the key to our meaning, our purpose, our destiny, and our perpetual fulfillment.
Central to the unveiling is sexual reunion, in which the epoch of patriarchal dominion comes to an end and women's evolutionary rights to reproductive choice are respected because of their disproportionately greater investment in parenting, as explained in Christine's and my work "Sexual Paradox".
A hint of the current direction to catalyse a new view of reality as a paradigm shift can be found at Resplendence. Resplendence - to "shine brightly" is the natural paradigm shift from the bondage of religion - "to bind fast", in which preconceived beliefs give way to collective action to bring about the immortal age of paradise, thus fulfilling our planetary destiny as sentient beings.
We, each nascently invoke the messianic condition, because consciousness is itself the integrated consummation of the cosmic process, in a way which is complementary to the objective physical universe as a whole, but the key to fulfilling the messianic promise is to find and convey the correct remedy to the existential crisis of our coming of age, to bring about a condition of long-term future goodness. The vital remedy, despite all the scorched-Earth pretentions of apocalyptic religion, and the short-term myopia of business-as-usual, is clearly protecting the immortal tree of living diversity, on which we all depend for our own survival, from irreversible human-caused terminal damage, and reflowering it in perennial resplendence.
This is the ultimate solution to all our mortal insecurities and serious risks of misadventure, or even demise, in an age of increasing instabilities from nuclear holocaust, through irreversibe habitat and climate crisis, to a mass extinction of living diversity. This is the heavenly paradise we seek, to escape the planetary hells of human folly and misadventure, and this is the blessed condition in which we can all achieve realization and transcendence.
Yeshua also appears to have understood this in moments of insight, not too clouded by apocalyptic thinking:
"If those who lead you say to you, 'See, the kingdom is in the sky,'
then the birds of the sky will precede you.
If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you.
Rather, the kingdom is inside of you,
and it is outside of you. (Gospel of Thomas 3).
The messiah of the second coming is born under a bad sign,
a fatal attraction and a true vine: the mushroom cloud of Trinity,
the curse of the White Goddess, and the sacred mushroom of immortality.
