Here we are in the twenty-first century with a world in upheaval -- terrorists, anthrax, plagues, financial uncertainty and political unrest -- a world not so different from the world that Edgar Cayce prophetically described many years ago, perhaps less an earthquake or two. Is it possible that Cayce has actually reincarnated and walks among us today? Edgar Cayce was born in 1877 and departed this plane in 1945. He left a legacy that has changed the lives of millions of people who are dedicated to spiritual awakening. We live our mortal lives in this physical universe with our miniscule conscious awareness, but Edgar Cayce all but proved to us that we live on after death.
Anyone who has studied some of the hundreds of books written about Cayce and his readings can't help but give serious consideration to the perpetual existence of our essence and of our ultimate return, clothed in a new body somewhere down the road. And each time we reincarnate, once again the memory of all our previous lives is hidden from our waking consciousness as we enter into another round of earthbound experience. Cayce gave us a multitude of clues as to how this process works, as well as the meaning of karma and the importance of service to others, among many, many other metaphysical topics.
I am one of the people who were greatly influenced by the Cayce material. I grew up without a very strong spiritual foundation but with a thirst for truth. Cayce planted the first seeds of doubt to my agnosticism and eventually I came to have some sense of my place in the Universe and my connection with the Creator. And although I have always given Cayce his due and felt gratitude for his work, the question always lingered as to "Why Cayce?" With all the billions of persons who have come and gone on this planet, why did Cayce have this special gift of omniscience in his dream state?
I never really expected to get an answer to that question, but here I am 30 years later and it looks like the answer has fallen into my lap. I've come to conclusions that I've never heard anyone else reveal, but I don't believe that anyone else has had the amazing set of clues that have come to me at their disposal. This is a story of epic proportions and it has led me to have a greater understanding of the meaning of life, the manner in which Creation works, who God is, why we are here, and where we are going. It involves pieces from disassociated sources that dovetail together and complete a vast cosmic puzzle. One major piece of this puzzle is David Wilcock.
I discovered Wilcock's website in the later part of 2000. The site had thousands of pages, somewhat disorganized, but extremely fascinating. (Thankfully, its organization is increasing over time.) Since November 10, 1996, Wilcock had used established remote-viewing protocols that he then modified in order to accurately produce verbal statements from an entity that eventually identified itself as "Ra." [The protocols of remote viewing are designed to greatly reduce, if not eliminate, the possibility of the conscious mind interfering with the stream of psychic data.]
Transcriptions of a number of these "readings" have been posted on his site since its February 1999 inception. I found that these readings displayed a huge breadth of wisdom, and occasionally had documented very accurate predictions of the future well in advance. These future predictions were most apt to occur in three types of cases:
1. Events that impacted Wilcock's personal life. Wilcock typically had a one to three-month gap between the time that he dictated his dreams and readings on audiocassettes to the time when he would transcribe them. Regardless of how long he had waited before transcribing these cassettes, in some cases over six months, the data would speak to the specific events he was then experiencing, sometimes even right in the room as the words were being typed. One notable example occurred when a dream was describing a building where the top floor was shaped like a UFO, with round windows. As he typed these words into the computer from a three-month-old recording while listening on headphones, his friend Sabrina walked into the room and started telling him about a man who had shown her a picture of that exact same building. Wilcock did not remember the dream, had never shared this dream data with her in the past, and the man who showed her the picture had only been in town that exact day.
2. Events that impacted those Wilcock knew or did readings for. One could not coerce Wilcock's readings to make future predictions, but the strong majority of Wilcock's clients would receive some form of accurate information that confirmed the validity of the source. One client awoke from a dream wherein he had experienced difficulty in setting up a camera tripod. He went to the mailbox, found Wilcock's reading cassette, went back inside, unwrapped the package and put it in the tape machine. As the reading began, he heard the words, "I am Ra. The tripod represents..."
3. Events that had a strong effect on mass consciousness, such as the death of famous figures, specific earth changes and political developments such as the Bush / Gore election crisis and the September 11th attacks. The exact name, nature and location of the events were not always spelled out, but in all cases there is redundant evidence that the event was well understood before it actually arrived.
Unlike many others working in this field, Wilcock was very candid in revealing personal information, including those times when Ra would take the role of Wilcock's wise advisor and spiritual guide, congratulating him for a job well done and chastising him when he did not meet up to certain expectations. Wilcock was also offering readings to people, for a fee, which would enable Ra to speak directly to the issues of the individual.
Another section of Wilcock's site included a selection of online books that he had written which were offered freely to anyone who wished to download them. One book, "Wanderer Awakening," was autobiographical in nature and detailed the many mysterious circumstances in his life prior to when the readings began. The "Convergence" series represented Wilcock's efforts to form a unified model of the Cosmos, compiling and coordinating many anomalous scientific breakthroughs and astronomical observations to give scientific validation for the existence of God, and of an aetheric energy field that creates and upholds all physical matter.
Furthermore, in the now three-part Convergence series he presented solid evidence that our planet is in the midst of a dimensional shift that will culminate sometime surrounding the oft-cited year 2012, a date that is also expressed in the Mayan Calendar. [We'll be hearing more about this as we proceed.]
And then there's the section of his site called "Edgar Cayce/Website Overview". In this area, Wilcock presents evidence to support the notion that he is the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce. My first impulse was that it was "preposterous", but as I began surveying the information, noting the extreme similarities in facial appearance, natal astrology, character, purpose and psychic ability, not to mention the reincarnation of several people close to them who also had facial and character similarities, it started to make sense. Cayce has often been considered "the most documented psychic of all time."
Similarly, Wilcock had documented written transcripts for every dream he experienced, on a daily basis since 1993, with all his readings transcribed and added to the mix since 1996. This alone is a massive personal commitment to one's own psychic work, outside of the enormous scientific efforts being made. Only a small percentage of these dream transcripts have been posted online, due to their often intensely personal content as well as the fact that there are well over 5000 pages of transcribed material to sift through.
I was prompted to review some of my old Edgar Cayce books and the more I researched them, the more parallels emerged. However, Wilcock's readings were decidedly different from Cayce's readings. Wilcock didn't overtly claim to have the ability to give the kind of precise medical advice that Cayce gave, and Wilcock didn't refer to past lives very often. And personally, I had never been attracted to channeled works, ETs and the like.
Yet, in these readings there was a celestial wisdom that, to my discerning, could not have come from Wilcock's own waking consciousness. My curiosity was provoked and I needed to find the truth. I scheduled myself for a reading from Wilcock and interviewed him later for "The Spirit of Ma'at" -- the web magazine founded by spiritual teacher Drunvalo Melchizedek. This book is the result of my quest.
As I researched Wilcock, I found that no less than Uri Geller, the world famous psychic and spoon-bender, had also discovered Wilcock and was sufficiently impressed to put up a testimonial on his web site -- www.uri-geller.com:
Return of the prophet -- Uri Geller
The greatest psychic of the last century was believed by many to be Edgar Cayce, who dictated medical cures for thousands he had never met.
Already in this new century one man claims to possess similar powers. His prophetic dreams and visions appear to reveal a remarkable gift. But the weirdest factor of all is . . . this man is Edgar Cayce.
Even in the UFOlogy community, where extreme weirdness is the norm, the claims of David Wilcock are arousing skepticism and wariness. But this 27-year-old vegan, a promising sci-fi writer in the mid-Nineties, predicted the Japanese nuclear meltdown [an accident in early 2000] and the loss of the NASA Mars probes.
His site is packed with warnings such as: "Stock market crash! The Archangel Michael told me, 'The stocks will be devalued so much as to appear to be utter nonsense.'" The Archangel is specific - the Dow will plummet to 2880.30.
It is not just Wilcock's dreams that tell him he is Cayce reborn. It is his mirror: his jaw is slightly less undershot, and his earlobes are bigger, but otherwise Ed and Dave could be twins.
Cayce, who died in 1945, announced he would return in 1998. Wilcock says he first connected his own dreams with Cayce's trances in November 1997.
Luckily, there is enough fascinating, contentious material on the website to ensure you don't have to part with a cent.
Bit by bit, the pieces fit together... and in this book I share with you the steps I went through and the conclusions I arrived at in my mission to discover if David Wilcock is, in fact, the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce. In my research, I've drawn not only upon the information from the Wilcock site, but also from a number of Edgar Cayce books, and an individual named Carla Rueckert, who also was a channel for Ra (the same Ra that Wilcock allegedly channels) from the period 1981 to 1985. I found amazing concordances that linked all these different sources together. The implications of this intertwining storyline are staggering... much more far-reaching than I could have ever imagined. And they provide explanations for such previously inexplicable phenomena as cycles in the Sun's activity, the speeded up pace of world events, and changing weather patterns.
Wilcock's second volume in the Convergence series, Free Energy, Anti-Gravity and Extraterrestrial Science, presents a solid theoretical framework that explains how to build technologies that could dramatically help the Earth, including the elimination of all conventional fossil-fuel energy sources and the advent of anti-gravity technology, which would abruptly transform humanity into an interstellar species. It then builds upon these concepts to help explain the critical connection between consciousness, spirituality and physics.
Finally, Wilcock's most recent work, The Divine Cosmos, ambitiously overturns many assumptions of science that have outlasted their usefulness, and replaced them with a miraculous model that proves how and why our entire Solar System is now showing measurable signs of a massive increase in its energetic charge. In putting this new cosmology together, Wilcock has essentially solved the "Unified Field" theory and more; solid evidence is shown that the true energetic nature of the atom is identical to what we see at all other levels of size, including moons, planets, Solar systems, galaxies, living cells and even the large-scale structure of the Universe itself. In doing so, Wilcock has resuscitated the ancient, presumably Atlantean science of "sacred geometry," again putting it at the forefront of human awareness.
I invite you to engage your own scrutinizing abilities as I unfold my revelations. I don't present any of this as truth. But if there is truth here, it will be revealed to most of us during our own lifetimes, and perhaps this book will better prepare us for what might be to come and how to cope with it, from both a survival and a spiritual perspective.
Each of us is involved in solving a great cosmic puzzle. Who are we? Why are we here? Why does God allow our world and our lives to be so topsy-turvy and unpredictable? Why is love so elusive? Why is there so much injustice? Why do innocent people die? Is a person eternal... and if so, where were we before we were born? Where do we go when we die? And why doesn't one remember? And if we do exist forever, why do we fear death?
We go through our lives so occupied with our day-to-day routines and responsibilities that most of the time we don't pay attention to these deeper questions until something jolts us out of our unconsciousness, and we are forced to fit another piece into the puzzle. Pieces of the puzzle usually arrive in strange, unexpected ways. Something comes that makes us truly happy for a while; a new job, a new love, or a new child. We become needed by something in life, and that need creates a new value for ourselves, a new understanding. Another piece of the puzzle falls into place. Someone crosses our path who seems happier than most. They have a lingering smile that the sorrows of the world just won't wear off.
Someone, like a Mother Teresa, lives an exemplary life different from the rest of us, and we wonder what could motivate her. Someone close to us passes on, or the World Trade Center collapses, and we are faced with contemplating our own mortality. We read something that inspires us, by an author who seems to understand the innate workings of our beings and our souls better than we do. Our intuitions are able to recognize truth even when our conscious minds are oblivious to it.
And then we have the anomaly of a life like Edgar Cayce. As we all struggle with finding meaning and understanding, as we desperately search for pieces of our puzzle, we are suddenly presented with an example of a man who has omniscience, but only in his sleep! This is a man who can know and diagnose what ails someone else while they are thousands of miles away... a man who can potentially have a correct answer for any possible question... a man who can see into the past lives of any who ask. And yet, he is also a man who, in his waking state, is not unlike you or I, a man who has his own weaknesses, confusions and challenges.
With the hundreds of books written about the Edgar Cayce readings and the millions of people who read them, Cayce helped many of us fit a new piece into our puzzles. In spite of the blank state of our memory banks, Cayce gave those who became familiar with his work the confidence to believe that they have lived before, and that life would go on after the body's demise. But the question remains: why Cayce?
With all the billions of people who have passed through this planet, why was Cayce able to have this awareness, albeit if only in his sleep, as the rest of us walk around in our somnambulistic waking trances? These are questions that I hope to answer as this book progresses.
And here's another point. We are presented with so much information in our lives, how can we know what to believe? In discerning the truth of something, we have at least three tools at our disposal:
1. Personal Validation. If I should tell you that there is a sale going on at the supermarket and you go there and buy some groceries at a discounted cost, you will have personally validated my story.
2. Credibility of the source. How reliable has the source been in providing dependable data in the past?
3. Intuitive recognition. Sometimes things just feel right. Something rings true. Later on, one may have a personal experience that validates the initial intuitive recognition, which had originally been accepted on faith.
In telling the story of the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce, I'll be drawing on a number of sources for credibility. If it weren't for all the amazing parallels between so many totally disconnected puzzle pieces, I myself would have a hard time believing this. So I ask you to suspend your own beliefs and judgments until you complete the entire book, and then see if it all fits together for yourself. The implications will go far beyond the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce; we are talking about a course of events that, if indeed true, will affect every life form on our planet over the next decade.
It is increasingly evident as of this year, 2002, that the world is changing at breakneck speed, with political unrest, geophysical unrest, terrorist activity, financial instability, solar flares, and plagues such as AIDS running rampant. The predictions of Edgar Cayce painted a very similar portrait of these times some 70 years ago. Simultaneously, we can observe a continuing increase of spiritual awareness, empathetic connection, and reaching out by common people everywhere for peace, tolerance, and love.
Indeed, the world is getting smaller every day. The Internet is breaking down barriers, and communication and news is happening at a global level. In some sense, we, mankind, are writing our own story. And with this speeding up of world events and communication, perhaps we can begin to grasp for the first time how our minds interact with each other and impact what we might have previously perceived as totally unrelated phenomena.
Even science is proving that consciousness can effect what would seem to be totally random and inanimate physical events. (See the chapter on the Global Consciousness Project.) And Edgar Cayce made it very clear that there was a direct connection between the natural disasters that might befall a given geographic location and the collective state of consciousness shared by those who lived there.
There are three primary sources for the information in this book:
1. The readings of Edgar Cayce himself. Cayce gave quite a bit of detail concerning his own past lives as well as two of his future lives. Edgar Cayce established credibility due to his thousands of readings, many of them with very verifiable diagnoses of his clients' physical conditions as well as predictions for the future. I will be drawing on this data to see how well it reconciles with information from other sources.
2. The Ascension2000 website of David Wilcock. The circumstances of his own life have led him, often "dragged kicking and screaming" with great reluctance, to the conclusion that he is the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce. He has drawn on information from his own psychic readings, impossibly precise astrological correspondences, dream memories of his life as Cayce and more. And of course, one cannot overlook his amazing physical resemblance to Cayce. We will look at those all these indicators with a fine-toothed comb and see how they match up with our other sources of information. Indeed, as I stated in the previous chapter, David has made a number of correct predictions, stemming from his own dreams and readings.
3. The "tuned trance telepathy" channeling of Carla Rueckert and associates. With the exception of the Cayce readings, channeled data always seemed to rely on the faith of the reader rather than facts that proved legitimacy, and would establish many premises that seemed highly improbable even to those with open minds. But I suspended my criticism as I read the Ra Material, formally known as The Law of One series, brought through by the efforts of L/L Research (the team of Carla Rueckert and her associates Dr. Don Elkins and Jim McCarty,) during the period of 1981-1985. As I read these five books, I realized that I was connecting with a source of wisdom that was more profound than anything I had ever previously been exposed to.
The Law of One series presented an all-inclusive cosmic perspective of where we come from, where we are going, and the meaning of life. And pieces of the puzzle were revealed that dovetailed in an astonishing way with the stories of Cayce and Wilcock. So as we begin, I'd ask you the reader to evaluate the clues -- the pieces of the puzzle that I will present -- with an unbiased mindset, and see if it all pulls together and makes sense for you.
Our story actually begins some 100,000 years ago as we learn about Ra, through the work of Carla Rueckert and L/L Research. If you can suspend your disbelief for a few moments, let's get started unraveling this mystery of mysteries, which will ultimately take us to the core of what life truly is in order to fetch the answers.
Most of us, in our waking consciousness, are limited to the input of information to our minds from our five senses: visual, auditory, taste, touch and smell. Many people base their lives on the principles of entertainment and escapism, continually seeking greater and greater fulfillment of these five basic sensations. Religions teach that there is something more, that life is eternal, and the physical world is but an illusion in which we learn lessons. They usually ask for us to accept on faith that there's a God, that there are angels, and that we shall experience an afterlife.
Occasionally, someone presents themselves as having the gift to pierce the veil, wherein they are actually able to perceive events on the "other side", or demonstrate the ability to communicate with a consciousness that exists in that realm. Perhaps as recently as ten years ago, the general public would have been very skeptical of this kind of ability. "Channeled" information still needs to be subjected to the same scrutiny as any other information that comes towards us, if not greater scrutiny. We still must use our sense of discernment to determine its validity.
I would tend to pay attention to this kind of information if it fulfilled the criteria for credibility as outlined in the previous chapter, i.e. accurate future predictions, knowledge of previously hidden information, and perhaps the most important one, an intuitive connection with one's inner wisdom and spiritual heart.
John Edwards is publicly demonstrating channeling to millions of people every day on his TV show Crossing Over. He certainly appears to have knowledge of hidden information as he tunes into to the deceased relatives and friends of his audience participants, though controversy surrounds this issue. Edgar Cayce obviously meets the criteria of a credible channeler. All the major bookstores carry shelves of books written by people who channel entities who exist in higher realms of consciousness, delivering best seller wisdom to their earthly ambassadors -- entities like Seth, Ramtha, Sanaya and DaBen.
Channeling is becoming much more mainstream, endorsed by such celebrities as Shirley MacLaine and many others. During the period between 1981 and 1984, Carla Rueckert delivered some of the most amazing, profound and intelligent channeled information ever brought forward that, thus far, has remained very obscure to the general public. Nevertheless, this information happens to be highly relevant to our story of the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce.
Rueckert held meditation groups every Sunday. She had channeled information consciously and telepathically for quite some time, connecting with various discarnate entities. One Sunday, January 14, 1981, something different happened; she lost consciousness and went into a deep trance. Three others were present at the time, including her companion Don Elkins and their new assistant Jim McCarty. It became established that Jim would meditate and hold the light during the sessions and transcribe them afterwards, while Don would pose questions. A being identified itself as Ra with the following greeting:
"RA: I am Ra. I have not spoken through this instrument before. We had to wait until she was precisely tuned, as we send a narrow-band vibration. We greet you in the light and love of our Infinite Creator. We have been called to your group because you have a need for a more advanced approach to what you call, seeking the truth. We hope to offer you a somewhat different slant upon the information which is always and ever the same."
For the next 4 years there was a continuing dialogue between Don Elkins' questions and Ra as being channeled by Carla. And this is where our story of the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce really starts. Most of the information in this chapter is as per Ra, sometimes paraphrased in my own words with the accordance of Carla Rueckert, who has reviewed it. I recommend that if this material resonates with you, you may want to read the original channeled text as referred to in the footnotes. When I have quoted from Ra directly, the quote is in caps and bold.
For the first time in any recent history, in response to Don Elkins' questions, Ra explains in great detail the inner workings of our universe... the specific ways that creation evolves from nothing into something and back to nothing. Ra describes the different phases or cycles of creation and how those on a higher evolutionary track must assist those who are behind in order to maintain their own momentum and growth. Ra exists now in what is described as the sixth density, "that density where one perceives the sacramental nature of all things."
As Ra evolves through the seventh density it is readying itself to reunite with the Creator, such that "At the 7th level or dimension, we shall, if our humble efforts are sufficient, become one with all, thus having no memory, no identity, no past or future, but existing in the all." Ra claims to be radiating love energy through 90% of all of Creation, and they work specifically with earthlings via dreamwork interactions, (clue: start thinking about Edgar Cayce), inspirations, and channelers. In the density where Ra exists, one lifetime is equivalent to hundreds of thousands of years, so Ra has been involved with the history of Earth for a very long time.
According to Ra, there is an "Octave" of eight major densities of aetheric energy in the Universe, which most modern scientists would think of as eight "dimensions." The densities themselves are composed of living, intelligent energy, and they correspond to planes of existence that all Creation must ultimately pass through. Of course, "all Creation" includes you and I as well. Each density has a particular grade or quality of consciousness associated with it, which all entities must attain before they can graduate to the next density.
We on earth are involved in the "third density" part of our evolution. The lesson or quality attached to the third density is self-awareness, and the lesson of the fourth density is the experience of love and the unity of all life. Until we have the beginnings of the experience of unity (not a belief but an experience) we must keep re-embodying, in the process referred to as reincarnation, within the third density world.
Some extra context is useful for us at this point. In Ra's cosmology, the One Infinite Creator originally separated itself into many parts, which eventually became galaxies such as our Milky Way. Ra would always use the term "Logos" instead of "galaxy" when discussing any galactic body such as our own. The term "Logos" is very revealing, since it was originally used in Greek versions of the Bible, and was later translated into the term "Word." Hence, we now read in the book of Genesis, "In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was God; and the Word was with God."
In Ra's cosmology, this apparently paradoxical statement makes sense. Each Logos is a perfect part of the One Creator, but it also has its own "personality" and identity as a conscious being. Each Logos then creates a basic outline for "archetypes" of soul evolution that all of its members will follow. These archetypes are experiences that every soul in the galaxy will experience at some time in their development, all of which are designed to lead them towards a greater seeking of Oneness.
Ra refers to the many millions of stars in a galaxy as "sub-Logoi," meaning that they also are spiritually united with the Galaxy. Stars are conscious entities that are aware of the entire Octave of densities, and they also have some degree of "personality" and free will in terms of how they carry out the Galaxy's plan of soul evolution.
This allows them to "set up the game" by in turn designing planetary systems, which must progressively evolve through the Octave of densities. The Solar Logos sets up exact timelines for when each planet will progress through each density; and thus as the Cayce Readings once said, "Each planet has its marching orders from the Divine [i.e. the Solar Logos]; only humanity has the free will to defy the will of God [the Solar Logos.]"
So, the One Creator separates into galaxies, and the galaxies have some control over how life, such as the stars, evolves within them. Stars in turn have some control over how planets evolve within their energy fields. Also, each planet has a certain degree of free will in terms of how it will follow the guidelines of its parent star and galaxy. This means that each planet has some say-so in how intelligent life such as ourselves will evolve. (Ra sometimes refers to us as "sub-sub-Logoi" along these same lines, indicating the Oneness of the energy fields of our souls with those of the planet, Sun and Galaxy.)
Throughout our own Galactic Logos and several of its close neighbors, the human bodily form has been chosen as the vehicle for conscious life to express itself on any given planet, hence "The Logos (God) created humans (Man) in Its own image." The Sun and Earth have both had some control over the exact nature of human DNA and the bodies that have now been formed as a result.
Wilcock's research, when combined with Ra's original statements, shows us how the Galactic Logos is able to program itself to create a certain type of lifeform. In my article with Wilcock entitled "A Scientific Blueprint for Ascension," he makes it clear that the DNA molecule is actually "gathered together" from the basic elements on a given planet by a spiraling, intelligent energy that permeates the entire galaxy.
Russian scientists have discovered and measured this spiraling energy field in the laboratory, and it is frequently referred to as "torsion (i.e. twisting, spiraling) radiation," with qualities that make it very different from electromagnetic radiation. Torsion radiation has been shown to be excessively responsive to consciousness, far more so than electromagnetic energy, and it has very healing and spiritually-enlightening effects when exposed to an organism.
Furthermore, the work of Garaiev and Poponin showed that the DNA molecule will attract light (photons) into itself, causing the light to spiral through the molecule instead of traveling in a typical straight-line path. Garaiev's big discovery, now known as the "DNA Phantom Effect," is that once the DNA molecule itself is removed from the chamber, the light will continue to spiral, all by itself, held by some invisible force field.
This "invisible force field" is created by the spiraling torsion wave that had originally gathered the DNA around itself. Even more importantly, the research of Yu. V. Tszyan Kanchzen showed that the spiraling energy forming the DNA could be transferred from one organism to another.
In this experiment, a duck was bombarded with high-intensity torsion waves, which were then redirected into a separate chamber with a hen in it. In as little as five days, the hen would begin to look like a duck, including the growth of webbing between its normally naked toes.
Thus, our DNA is only like a computer chip, with different sections that can either be "on" or "off." The torsion-wave pattern of the soul actually programs the DNA, much like how the operating system and software tells the chips in your computer how to run. One can certainly buy two of the exact same computers, but by loading different operating systems and software, they will "look" very different on the screen and have very different functions once you turn them on.
As a human soul reincarnates from lifetime to lifetime, its torsion-wave "energetic signature" will alter the DNA inherited from the parents to create similarities in facial appearance, personality and body characteristics, such as the shape of the hands and the ears, among other things.
The research efforts of Joseph Myers, P.E. (Professional Engineer) and Dr. Walter Semkiw have extensively validated these connections through demonstrating the reincarnation of many famous people in history. This also gives new meanings to the old sayings about how married couples will look more like each other the longer they are together; as they continue to be exposed to each other over time, their soul vibrations intermingle with each other at the DNA level.
So, to review, Wilcock states that this spiraling "torsion" energy is actually more "real" than the DNA molecule itself, as it already exists in the fabric of space and time itself before any physical life emerges on a given planet. Over time, the gentle, organized spiraling pressures of "torsion waves" on physical matter will naturally gather the available elements on a given planet into the basic building blocks for life, such as amino acids, which will eventually form into "de-oxy-ribo-nucleic acid," or DNA.
Interestingly, one of the original scientists who discovered the DNA molecule, Prof. Crick, has proven that the DNA molecule is far, far too complex to have evolved by random chance, and this Wilcock / Ra model gives us a solid explanation.
The next key is that a Galaxy will have different zones of energy density that will divide it up like a pie when seen from the north or south galactic pole. Then, as a star drifts through the Galaxy, it will pass through the different densities in very exact intervals of time. This "density shift", as Ra calls it, also creates more intelligent and complex torsion waves, which in turn transforms the DNA structures on each planet. This causes higher-evolved forms to rapidly replace the older forms of life.
Ample evidence of this is seen in our fossil record, as evolution is not seen to be a gradual process but rather occurs in sudden jolts, which are known as "punctuated equilibrium" to mainstream scientists. Similarly, as human beings, we have still never found the "missing link" that could support the Darwinian model of gradual evolution; for some reason unknown to mainstream science, about 75-100,000 years ago the human organism had a massive increase in the size of its brain and the elegance and usefulness of its body. According to Ra, this was brought about by spontaneous DNA evolution, caused by our Sun passing into an area of higher energy in the galaxy.
So, when this energetic "upgrade" occurred in our own history, the cycle of third-density life began on Earth. One basic cosmic law is that third-density experiences for any given planet occur in "major cycles" of approximately 25,000 years each. This 25,000-year length of time corresponds to how long it takes a star to pass through a given band of energy as it orbits the Galactic Center, and Wilcock's scientific research has given extensive proof to validate this concept.
At the end of each major cycle, the highest possible grade of vibration is reached for third-density, and at this time entities can graduate into higher densities via a process Ra refers to as "Harvest" if they are ready to do so. The normal period allotted for an entity to graduate from the third density is up to three "major cycles" of 25,000 years each. After three "major cycles," a planet automatically moves into the fourth-density by the simple physics of vibration, whether the inhabitants are ready or not. A third-density body could not live on the planet, as its DNA would no longer be supported by the torsion waves in the area. Higher-density lifeforms exist on most of the other planets in the Solar System, though these planetary conditions are quite inhospitable to human beings.
Of course, each major cycle of experience for a given entity, such as a human being, will include many separate lifetimes, i.e. physical incarnations. If a third-density planet has reached the end of a cycle and is about to shift into fourth-density, then those inhabitants who are not ready to graduate will end up reincarnating on a different third-density planet.
This does not happen "by accident" or simple conscious intention, but rather involves an intelligently-guided transfer of the souls themselves and of the appropriate genetic material for the creation of physical bodies that will match up with the souls. This "planet-hopping" process is managed by groups of interplanetary cosmic beings such as Ra, and as star systems are continually moving into different zones of energy throughout the Galaxy, there is always work to be done. From the reference point of Earth, these beings are referred to as angels, celestial beings, ET's, or perhaps the Lords of Karma.
A group of these beings that calls itself "The Confederation of Planets in Service of the One Infinite Creator" governs a large section of our Galaxy that we now inhabit, and they are collectively responsible for managing the transfer and evolution of souls from planet to planet.
Typically, those who evolved together on a certain planet are kept together when moved to a new planet; so if a certain percentage of entities in third-density did not make graduation after three major cycles, then they would be moved to another planet as a group. However, the members of this Confederation saw that there were several groups of third density "cycle repeaters" that were too small in number to justify terra-forming an entire planet just for them.
Therefore, Earth was chosen as a unique experiment, wherein "cycle repeaters" from many different planetary populations would be combined together under one roof. It is very uncommon for a planet to have as much racial diversity as we do on Earth; for example, just within the Caucasian races there are broad differences in appearance that can be seen between Slavic, Mediterranean and Western European peoples. The same would be true in the Asian races between Chinese, Filipinos and Japanese, as three of the clearest examples.
The reason for all of this genetic diversity is that these souls have come here from different planets; the Chinese people, for example, are said to come from a planetary system surrounding the star Deneb. Thus, their souls originated from stars and planets that had slightly different "personalities" in terms of how the DNA was structured to form the appearance of the human being. These basic differences cannot and should not be erased, since according to Cayce they are all aspects of the inner character and harmony of the soul.
Ra explains that this great "experiment" went awry, in the sense that not a single entity graduated after the end of our first major cycle some 50,000 years ago. Normally, it is expected that 10 to 20 percent of the people would make it after the first cycle. At the end of our second major cycle some 25,000 years ago, only 120 entities were ready for graduation, and they chose to stay behind and help out the others. Normally, over 60 percent of the people graduate after the second major cycle on a third-density planet, leaving the small remaining percentage of people to learn about the importance of love before the end of the third and final cycle.
By the end of the second major cycle on Earth, it became alarmingly clear that the "experiment" of combining all the cycle repeaters together was not working. Great spiritual suffering was occurring and a dramatic form of assistance was required in order to try to turn things around. As a result, massive numbers of entities from fourth, fifth and especially sixth density, including those from Ra group itself, volunteered to take on human incarnations in order to try to help out. Ra refers to these souls as "Wanderers," and if you feel yourself remembering all of these statements as if you had already known them before, then you might be one of the nearly 100 million "ET souls" who now walk the face of the earth.
The process of eventually recognizing oneself as being a Wanderer is not very easy or acceptable to most others, but it can answer many nagging questions as to why life on Earth seems so horribly disharmonious and out of balance. Contrary to popular belief, Wanderers are not necessarily expected to "do" anything or to "save the world" by their own efforts; by simply remaining in a physical body and preferably maintaining a joyful state of mind, they are having a tremendously beneficial energetic effect on the mass consciousness of humanity. This in turn can dramatically increase the number of souls who will qualify for graduation.
Earth is actually the fourth planet in our Solar System to host third-density lifeforms. At some point, millions of years ago, Venus was the first planet to be populated with life forms similar to human beings on Earth. The inhabitants were going through their third to fourth density transition and were being assisted by a higher group. "We were aided by 6th density entities during our own 3rd density experiences. Being extremely less warlike than humans we found this teaching to be of help. We had not developed the interrelationships of your money system and power.
We were a more philosophical 3rd density planet than your own. About 17 percent of those third-density inhabitants of Venus graduated or "ascended," and went on to evolve through the fourth, fifth, and sixth densities. Ascension is another name for the process that beings go through as they change densities. As the Venusians ascended through the densities and got closer to the experience of original creation, they also started to lose their separateness. This group of ascended Venusians now exists in the sixth density as Ra, who describes itself as a "social memory complex, a large group of completely integrated souls - or "group soul" for short".
The second planet to host third-density humans was known as "Maldek," which in turn exploded in a freak worldwide nuclear catastrophe brought about by war. Normally such events are not permitted to occur, since they violate the free will of many innocent beings throughout the entire planetary system, but not even the "Guardians" are perfect.
In this case, the nuclear conflagration occurred very spontaneously and unexpectedly, and the planet's explosion in turn created fragments that formed comets and the Asteroid Belt. [Wilcock's readings assure us that extraordinary measures are now being taken to insure that this will not happen again, and this is why many UFO whistleblowers have come forward with accounts of UFOs powering down nuclear missile silos.]
The inhabitants of Maldek went into a "social memory complex knot or tangle of fear" that lasted for more than 200 thousand years before it could be broken. As a group, they then decided to take on a series of incarnations in bodies with drastic physical limitations, which would create "karmic alleviation" by preventing them from having the ability to create any advanced civilization capable of self-destruction. These were the first entities to people the Earth, and we have fossil records of their "clunky" bodies as the Neanderthals.
The third and final planet to host third-density humanoids before the Earth was Mars, wherein ample evidence of an advanced civilization still rests, including pyramids and monuments with precise geometric relationships to each other and to the planet itself, as seen through the work of Richard C. Hoagland's Enterprise Mission among others.
The Martians were going along fairly well until they too had a worldwide catastrophe; in this case they did not destroy the planet itself, but rather blew off their atmosphere, creating the parched, desolate wasteland that we now see. The souls and genetic material of the Martians were moved forward some 125,000 years in time for placement on Earth at the beginning of its first third-density cycle about 75,000 years ago. Prior to that time, only second density life existed on Earth. "The second density is the density of the higher plant life and animal life which exists without the upward drive towards the infinite." At this time, Ra existed on the sixth density, the level of "compassionate wisdom" and was beginning its service to Earth as it assisted in the genetic "packaging" and transmigration of the Martians.
"Don Elkins: I assume you're saying that the guardians transferred the Martian race here after the race had died, in the physical sense, on Mars.
RA: This is correct."
Aside from helping with the Martian transmigration, there have been quite a few other circumstances where Ra has intervened in Earth's history:
RA: The 1st attempt to aid your peoples occurred about 75,000 years ago. [Helped Martians come to Earth]. Next, help was given to those of Mu about 58,000 years ago. Next, help was offered to Atlantis about 18,000 years ago. The next attempt was to help the Egyptians [and to some in South America] about 11,000 years ago. About 3500 years later [7500 years ago] help was offered again to some in South America. There were a few attempts to aid those in Egypt about 2300 years ago by others in the Confederation. The remaining part of this cycle we have never gone from your 5th dimension.
The Ra intervention that is most important to our story (remember, this book is called "The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce") is the involvement with the Egyptians 10,500 years ago. There's quite a bit of specific information about this that I include verbatim from the Ra readings below, starting out where Ra describes the actual manifestation of a body in Egypt:
I am part of the social memory complex that voyaged outward from a planet in your solar system, the one you call Venus. We are a race old in your measures. When we were at the 6th dimension our physical beings were what you call golden. We were tall and somewhat delicate. The covering of our physical body complex had a golden luster. In this form we decided to come among your peoples. Your peoples were much unlike us in physical appearance. Thus we did not mix well with the population and were obviously other than they. Our visit was relatively short. This was when we built the pyramids. When we chose this mission among your peoples, we would have been perceived as light had we arrived on earth in our natural form.
"We now feel a great responsibility of helping remove certain distortions that have been given to the law of One. We, as social memory complex or group soul, made contact with a race on your planet which you call Egyptians. We spoke to one who heard and understood (we will find out later that this was Ra-Ta, a high priest and a previous incarnation of Cayce), and was in a position to decree the law of One. However the priests and the peoples of that era quickly distorted our message, robbing it of the compassion with which unity is informed." (And therefore, Ra feels a sense of responsibility in healing the way their message was misrepresented and passed on.)
During this period of involvement in Egypt, Ra built the pyramids as a healing chamber by the levitation of stone:
RA: The larger pyramids were built by our ability using the forces of One. RA: Imagine the activity within all that is created. The energy, though finite, is quite large. This energy is intelligent. It is hierarchical. Just as you have a hierarchy of vehicles, or bodies, so does each atom of such a material as rock.
THE STONES ARE ALIVE. THIS HAS NOT BEEN UNDERSTOOD BY YOUR CULTURE. One can speak to more well-tuned higher bodies, be they rock or human. With this connection is made, a request may be given. The intelligence of infinite rock-ness communicates to its physical vehicle or body, and that splitting and moving which is desired is then carried out.
Don Elkins: Was this was done mentally by one individual?
RA: There is a distinction between individual power through the Law of One and the power available through the combined understanding of the Law of One by a group soul. One individual, purified of all flaws, could indeed move a mountain. However, in the case of mass understanding of unity, each individual may contain an acceptable amount of distortion and yet the mass mind could move mountains. There are those among your people at this time whose purity is already one with intelligent infinity.
Don Elkins: Why not create it as a whole instead of with blocks?
We did not want to be worshipped as builders of a miraculous pyramid. Thus it appears to be made, not thought.
RESURRECTION DUE TO INITIATION IN THE QUEEN'S CHAMBER
RA: The concept of initiation demands the centering of the being upon the seeking of the Creator. The initiation in the Queen's chamber [of the Great Pyramid] involved the abandoning of self to such desire to know the Creator in full that the purified instreaming light is drawn in balanced fashion through all energy centers, or chakras, meeting in the inner eye chakra and opening the gate to intelligent infinity. Then true life is experienced, or, as your people call it, resurrection.
I'll jump ahead here to an excerpt from the Cayce readings regarding the creation of the pyramids:
"The Great Pyramid was built as a hall of initiation, the "House Initiate" for those dedicating themselves to special services in the secrets of the mystery religion of Egypt. It was erected by the application of those universal laws and forces of nature which causes iron to float in air. The Pyramid was thus built by levitation, abetted by song and chanting."
Later, I will go into much more detail taken from the Cayce readings about Ra-Ta, the Egyptian priest who was a prior incarnation of Cayce. However, this is an amazing parallel that connects Ra and Cayce, concerning the creation of the pyramids by the levitation of stone. More parallels will unfold in the next chapter as we go deeper into the life of Ra-Ta, and we will see later how well Wilcock fulfils Cayce's prediction of Ra-Ta's return in 1998.
Immediately, some readers will say, "So what? All that proves is that Rueckert studied the Cayce material." Notably, Carla was completely unconscious during the Ra sessions and did not remember anything that had transpired once she came back, which had never occurred in any of her previous 20 years of channeling experience.
If you were to meet her yourself, you would see that she obviously is not a person who is prone to lie about anything. I had a conversation with Carla Rueckert and asked her about her own awareness of Edgar Cayce to see if there was any possibility that she had picked up this information through a previous familiarity with the Cayce Readings.
She was not aware that the Cayce Readings had said anything about the time period of the creation of the pyramids and the levitation of the rocks, nor of how precisely Cayce's dates fit those of Ra, as of the time that I had asked her the question. Her exposure to Cayce was mostly related to his alternative medical remedies, and we must remember that there are well over 300 books that have been written regarding the different points in the Cayce readings. Carla became deeply involved in channeling and researching her own material when she was still very young.
It is also important to mention here that Wilcock's research has established that the Law of One / Ra series has every bit as much scientific credibility as the Cayce Readings, far outside the scope of one person to produce by their imagination alone.
Much of Wilcock's mission in this life has been to continuously provide greater and greater amounts of scientific evidence to back up statements made in the Law of One / Ra series. In most cases, the proof simply did not exist at the time that the original series was conducted from 1981-1985, and it is highly unlikely that Carla Rueckert could have outfoxed the inquiring mind of a Ph.D. theoretical physicist in promoting such a far-reaching, internally consistent and specific cosmology.
Furthermore, Wilcock's research has revealed answers to many unsolved physics questions that had boggled the minds of the original L/L Research team, such as the meaning of the term "the spiraling line of light." Ra often would correctly use words that no one in L/L Research had ever heard of, which would require an unabridged dictionary to verify. Furthermore, in Book Five of the Law of One series, Ra also displayed the ability to perform "medical readings" that are very similar to Cayce's, using technical medical terms to give an exact diagnosis of Carla's condition and supplying suggestions for treatment.
Summary of important points:
1. Ra is a group soul or social memory complex. Ra had a third density existence as the population of the planet Venus, which ascended.
2. Ra exists on the sixth density now, almost one with the Creator. Ra is in service to earth people in their evolution to higher density just as a higher density being assisted the population of Venus in its upward flow of evolution.
3. Most of Ra's participation has been through psychic and dream interaction with Earthlings, although in 10,500 B.C. Ra manifested a body in Egypt to assist a priest who had an affinity with the "Law of One" (who was Cayce in a previous incarnation). Ra also built the pyramids during this period by levitation of rock. Cayce also said that the pyramids were built by levitation 10,500 B.C.
4. Ra's participation in Egypt, and the creation of the pyramids did not work out as planned. Others abused what Ra had created and used it for self-serving purposes. As a result of creating distortions in the evolutionary track of earth, Ra has had to (or chosen to) hang in with us and make reparations.
Ra manifested a body in Egypt different from a human body, tall, delicate, and with a golden luster.
The story of the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce is really involved with the solving of a mystery. Ra has been leaving a track of time-stamped clues throughout our history, and the uncovering of these clues is one of the things that helps to solve this mystery and to give credibility to the story. So, for the next clue, we need to understand the history of Ra-Ta as revealed in the spiritual framework of the Edgar Cayce Readings.
I will also draw on the hypnotic past-life regression, performed by renowned author and researcher Jess Stearn, of a person who the Cayce Readings said had lived during the period of Ra-Ta. This information was presented in Stearn's 1993 book called "Intimates Forever". (Jess Stearn also wrote perhaps the single most popular book about Cayce, entitled "The Sleeping Prophet.)
Before we discuss Ra-Ta, it will be important for certain readers to be assured that Cayce's readings did not put the Ra group nor his own previous incarnation as Ra-Ta at the "top of the pyramid" in the spiritual sense. In the last chapter we saw how Ra used the word "Logos" to describe the personality of our Galaxy as a conscious being. In the Cayce Readings, it is stated that the Logos decided to take on personal Earth incarnations from the very beginning of our third-density cycle of experience. [This could well be due to the immense problems that had already occurred with Mars and Maldek.]
The original incarnation of the Logos was known as "Amilius," who became the prototype for "Adam" in the book of Genesis. After many very historic spiritual incarnations including Melchizedek, Elijah and Moses, the final incarnation of the Logos on earth came about in the life of Jesus, who called himself "the last Adam." Once Jesus completed his personal initiation, he began saying "I am the Logos," which again is now translated to "I am the Word." The Cayce readings also say that Jesus was the first person to complete this process of self-transformation, and that others would follow a similar path at the end of the cycle.
So, it is well known to Cayce scholars that the Logos is of central importance in directing human civilization on Earth; but certainly, one entity cannot be expected to manage all the responsibility by itself without having first differentiated itself into many different beings at different levels of density. The process of guarding, spiritually supporting and transferring souls from one planet to another requires a great deal of staffing, with contacts both in higher realms as well as on the planets themselves.
And thus, in a little-known prayer discovered by an associate of Wilcock's, the Cayce Readings refer to the names "Ra" and "Ra-Ta" separately, indicating that they are two different entities, both of whom are responsible for such administrative tasks. Most A.R.E. members often overlook this point, yet it is perhaps the most direct clue in all of the Cayce Readings that his source was well aware of the Ra group.
According to the Cayce readings, Ra Ta was an early incarnation of Cayce in Egypt at 10,500 BC, and the context from Rueckert / LL Research's work makes it clear that Ra had provided direct assistance to Ra-Ta at that time. The following story, derived from the Cayce Readings, is predominantly summarized from the book by W.H. Church entitled "Many Happy Returns, The Past Lives of Edgar Cayce" and the book by Mark Lehner entitled "The Egyptian Heritage." Between these two books, all essential points of the story can be reconstructed.
Ra-Ta started his life by being born in a less-civilized area, ruled by the tribe of "Zu," (perhaps the ancient Sumerians) somewhere between the Caspian Sea and the Caucasian Mountains. The Cayce Readings tell us that Ra-Ta was a very unusual child, in that he had pale white skin and blue eyes in an area where the others did not look this way. His mother explained that the "gods (think ETs) from that area" had engendered her pregnancy, hence making Ra-Ta an ET-human hybrid. Even though she was the daughter of the leader of the Zu / Sumerian tribe, the tribal elders were very spooked by the bizarre birth and appearance of Ra-Ta, as well as the problem that she did not have a husband, which was frowned upon in their culture.
Therefore, the elders ordered her and Ra-Ta to be banished from the land with a group of assistants to protect them. Over time, they made their way to the slopes of what is now Mount Ararat in Turkey. During this time period, the civilization of Atlantis had just begun spreading out into other areas from the central land of "Poseidia" in the area of what is now Cuba and Florida. The Turkish area that Ra-Ta and his mother came to had only recently started to have diplomatic relations with the Atlanteans, and thus was still behind the times in the technological sense.
As Ra-Ta grew up, it became clear that he had prophetic abilities and could channel very accurate psychic information. At 21 years of age he had a prophetic dream that a worldwide cataclysm would occur in the not-too-distant future. Most of the island continent of "Poseidia" was going to be inundated, and his own area would also suffer cataclysms. His intuition and scientific research on the Global Grid of "energy lines" combined to suggest that Egypt would be the safest place to go for weathering out these Earth Changes, since it was situated at the center of the Grid. (This has now been scientifically verified through studies of the Becker-Hagens grid, as reported in Wilcock's Convergence series.)
When the Earth's poles shifted, Egypt would be the balance-point for their movement. Ra-Ta communicated this prophecy to the King's son Arart, and a pioneering group of 900 people led by Arart with Ra Ta as their spiritual leader made the journey from Turkey to Egypt.
After a long and arduous journey, they arrived in the Egyptian city of Luz. Initially there was mistrust and scrutiny, but eventually the Egyptians accepted the Atlanteans and exalted them. Arart was proclaimed King and Ra-Ta was accepted as their high priest. Over a period of time, spiritual and moral reforms were instituted by Ra-Ta and he became beloved by the people. He built temples for self-healing and transformation, and was able to perform many miraculous acts.
By this time, many other Atlanteans had been receiving visions of the coming inundation, and were emigrating away from the island continent of Poseidia in the Atlantic in droves. As part of what was "really a very busy life," [294-148], Ra-Ta began using an Atlantean anti-gravitational craft to travel abroad and interact with the Atlanteans and other cultures over 10-year periods of time. During these travels, he learned much more about Atlantean science and technology, which included many very advanced concepts about how science and spirit fit together.
Furthermore, the Atlanteans wished to create a storehouse of their accumulated knowledge and wisdom so that it would not perish, and they also understood that Egypt would be one of three safest places for a copy of their records to be stored. Similar records were being prepared in Posiedia itself at the Temple of Ilta, and another location in the Yucatan area of Mesoamerica. Since Ra-Ta was the ambassador and spiritual leader of Egypt, negotiations were conducted with the Atlanteans about how to proceed in the process of storing and preserving the records.
Earlier in his spiritual ministry in Egypt, Ra Ta had instituted a moral code that included loyalty in marriage and communal living. Prior to Ra Ta, the custom was for men and women to be segregated and only come together in a special conjugal chamber for intimate encounters. After the third 10-year period in which he had been traveling abroad, he returned to Egypt and was horrified by what he had discovered: in the relatively short time since he had gone, his sacred temples had been converted into sexual playgrounds.
A great turmoil ensued as he rushed to condemn these actions, and certain individuals became very angry with him and started plotting a way to bring about his removal from power. As they observed him, they became aware that he was extremely fond of a young woman who danced in the temples named Isris. They were then able to cleverly trick and coerce Isris into seducing Ra-Ta.
Once Ra-Ta took the bait, the illicit affair was revealed, and the conspirators then pointed accusing fingers of how he had broken his own spiritual principles of monogamous marriage. To make matters worse, Isris was a favorite of Arart's son "Araaraart," who had become the new King. Jealousy and the desire for revenge can certainly go a long way, and in this case it led to the banishment of Ra-Ta and 231 followers who decided to go with him. They ended up in what now is called Ethiopia and what was then called Nubia. Ra Ta reflected with regret on the monumental consequences of his dalliance.
But wherever Ra Ta lived he carried his blessings with him, and the banishment only helped to further his soul evolution:
"With the entering into the Nubian land, there came such a change that there were the better conditions at every term that may be applied to human experience... As the priest in this creative period entered more and more into the closer relationships with the Creative Forces. Greater were the abilities of the entity or body Ra Ta to be able to make or bring about the material manifestations of that relationship... hence, the peace that was enjoyed by all those throughout the land..."
During his banishment, Ra-Ta met with an earlier human incarnation of the Logos known as Hermes, who later was honorably referred to as "Thothermes Trismestigus," meaning "Thrice Greatest Hermes." The Egyptians lauded him as "the scribe of the Gods" or "lord of divine words". Hermes' life is "shrouded in mystery" according to Church. He seemed to show up apparently "out of nowhere". He had prophetic dreams and could look "forward and backward" in time, but he was low profile and self-effacing.
Hermes and Ra Ta were closely associated, and Cayce referred to Hermes as "the heart and the tongue of Ra." Here, we must remember that Ra-Ta's name was eventually shortened to just "Ra." Therefore, this quote appears to mean that Hermes had as much of an influence on Ra-Ta as the sixth-density Ra group did.
The historical figure of Hermes is still heavily revered by the secret societies of today's world, as can be seen by entering the National Museum of Art in Washington, DC, whereupon you soon walk into a giant three-story-high marble room ringed with magnificent black pillars and a huge statue of Hermes in the center. Most people do not think much about this connection, since Hermes was the patron of the arts in Greek mythology. Cayce was a Freemason himself, and thus it must have been a great surprise to his Masonic cohorts that his readings had indicated that Hermes was in fact an earlier incarnation of Jesus!
Meanwhile things were falling apart back in Egypt for King Araaraat. There was discontent amongst the people and uprisings without the calming vibration of Ra-Ta, even though he had often been out of town. Law and order was falling apart and the Atlanteans' hopes and dreams for the future of Egypt were crumbling.
The King was having regrets over his banishment of Ra Ta. After nine years, the King finally rescinded the banishment decree and Ra Ta was allowed to return. In fact, this led to the King ending up as being just a figurehead while Ra Ta was exalted, but the King allowed this willingly, to permit the divine purpose inspired by Ra Ta to be reinstigated.
So peace and harmony reined once more in Egypt. Ra-Ta went on to live an unusually long life, which the Cayce Readings attribute to him spending a great deal of time within a pyramid in order to harness the rejuvenative energies that it produces. Church supposes that Hermes helped Ra reverse his aging trend as well.
It was during this period of the return from banishment that the pyramids were constructed. Cayce gave Hermes credit as the architect, while Ra Ta, now known as Ra, was the second most significant collaborator. By some esoteric means, the stones were levitated and set in place.
Jess Stearn, author of The Sleeping Prophet, released a book in 1993 called Edgar Cayce's Mysteries of Reincarnation.
Before I go into the Wilcock fulfillment of the Cayce prophecy, I felt it important to insert this chapter on the historical background of the Great Pyramid and Egyptian mythology, and to then evaluate how it interfaces with the information from Cayce and Rueckert, since the information presented is somewhat at odds with the traditional historical perspective of that period. To review, according to the combined information from the channelings of Rueckert and Cayce, Ra and Hermes built the pyramids by the "levitation of stone" 10,500 years ago.
Historically, it is believed that the Great Pyramid was built in approximately 3000 BC, by the Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu. The Association for Research and Enlightenment, or A.R.E, (the foundation established to perpetuate the Cayce body of data,) actually did a carbon-14 test on the pyramid to determine its age in an attempt to reconcile this discrepancy between the age as indicated by Cayce and the age according to conventional history. The result of this test seemed to validate the historical age, but as I researched this further I found an interesting article, posted June 21, 2001 on the BBC's Internet site, which I quote below:
"A complete rewrite of the history of modern humans could be needed after a breakthrough in archaeological dating techniques.
British and American scientists have found radio carbon dating, used to give a rough guide to the age of an object, can be wrong by thousands of years.
It means humans may have been on earth for a lot longer than previously thought and accepted versions of early history could need a radical rethink.
Experts have known for years that carbon dating is inexact but until researchers from Bristol and Harvard completed their study no one knew by how much."
So therefore, the carbon-14 test on the pyramid is in no way conclusive, and the historical date of the creation of the pyramid cannot be validated from such a study.
In the third century BC, Plato wrote about having been told that Atlanteans had invaded Egypt nine thousand years prior, or 11,000 years from today, which would be pretty close the 10,500-year date assigned by Cayce. This also fits in with the Cayce story of the exodus from Atlantis by Ra-Ta and his group, and of the occupation of Egypt. This is the only direct reference in known recorded history to the existence of Atlantis.
Also, according to an article by Robert Sheer, water marks were found on the sides of the Great Pyramid at a level 400 feet higher than the Nile river is today, and deposits of sea salt inside the Pyramid corroborate the theory that it and the Sphinx must have been built before the time of the melting of the last great Ice Age, about 12,000 years ago.
According to Zecharia Sitchin in his book Stairway to Heaven, the common view that the Pyramids of Giza were actually tombs for pharaohs could not be supported. No pharaoh's body has ever been found in the Great Pyramid. Sitchin took note of the fact that there were no hieroglyphics on the inner walls of the pyramids. He hypothesized that his was because they were built prior to the written language of the Egyptians. Conventional archeologists date the Great Pyramid by a series of painted red "quarry marks" that were found in passages above the King's Chamber.
Yet, these "quarry marks" were all written at the only appropriate angle for the arm of a person who had broken into these very narrow "relief chambers" in the same way that Col. Howard Vyse had just done, at the time they were found. Compelling evidence suggests that Vyse deliberately hoaxed the quarry marks, attributing the building of the pyramid to the pharaoh Khufu, since workers' morale was very low, his funding was almost completely exhausted and no substantial archeological discoveries had yet been made.
Furthermore, there were several mistakes in the way that the quarry marks were written that were identical to the mistakes in Budge's seminal work of the time for decoding the Egyptian hieroglyphics. Vyse had a copy of Budge's book, and thus all evidence suggests that it was a deliberate forgery, since Vyse created a message that combined hieroglyphics from different periods of Egyptian history that were separated by hundreds of years.
Sitchin believes that the pyramids were healing chambers, and according to the Rueckert material, Ra also states that the Great Pyramid was a healing chamber that was used to concentrate aetheric energy. At one point Napoleon was said to have spent a night in the Great Pyramid. When he emerged, he was reportedly "pale and dazed," and when questioned about his experience he replied, "You wouldn't believe me if I told you."
The actual method of construction of the pyramids has historically been a bone of contention and controversy even among conventional Egyptologists. The technology to put together sixty-ton blocks of concrete with the precision that is found in the pyramids just doesn't exist, even today. On March 2, 1999 Fox News presented a TV show exploring the mysteries of the Pyramid where Fadel Gad, an Egyptologist, conjectured:
"Were the Egyptians thinking of UFOs at that time? Yes! A very sophisticated, highly intelligent species that had intercepted this planet Earth and had caused the evolution and the exploration of the human consciousness."
And David Pratt, in an article on the pyramids, stated the following:
"The Pyramid is an unrivaled feat of engineering and craftsmanship. It is aligned with the four cardinal points more accurately than any contemporary structure, including the Meridian Building at Greenwich Observatory in London. The 350-foot-long descending passage is so straight that it deviates from a central axis by less than a quarter of an inch from side to side and only one tenth of an inch up and down -- comparable with the best laser-controlled drilling being done today.
The casing stones, some of which weighed over 16 tons, are so perfectly shaped and squared that the mortar-filled joint between them is just one-fiftieth of an inch -- the thickness of a human nail. Egyptologist Sir Flinders Petrie described such phenomenal precision as "the finest opticians' work;" work of this calibre is beyond the capabilities of modern technology. The casing stones show no tool marks and the corners are not even slightly chipped.
The granite coffer in the King's Chamber is cut out of a solid block of hard red granite -- so precisely that its external volume is exactly twice its internal volume. Engineer and master craftsman Christopher Dunn rejects the theory that it could have been cut and hollowed using bronze saws set with diamond cutting points, because when pressure was applied, the diamonds would have worked their way into the much softer copper, leaving the granite virtually unscathed.
In his opinion, the evidence shows that the Egyptians would have to have possessed ultra-modern tools, including tubular drills that could cut granite 500 times faster than modern drills. But that is not all. The Great Pyramid embodies an advanced knowledge of geometry, geodesy (the science of earth measurement), and astronomy."
Another interesting point is that the pyramids that were built for 5th dynasty kings -- supposedly just a few decades after those at Giza -- were vastly inferior in terms of size, materials, and workmanship. One would have to ask why, if the Egyptians actually had the ability to build with the precision demonstrated at Giza, would there have been such a startling loss of construction skills in the pyramids built afterwards.
And then we must consider a series of geometrical proportions associated with the Great Pyramid that indicate a precision of workmanship and a knowledge of the Earth and the Solar System beyond any information should have been available to the Egyptians. For example:
The base of the Great Pyramid x 43200 equals the equatorial circumference of Earth, with better than 1% accuracy
The height x 43200 equals the polar radius accurate to 0.2% (Note: Whoever built the pyramids knew that Earth wasn't a perfect sphere, for there were different measures for the equatorial and polar circumferences)
4320 is the number of years for Earth to move thru 2 zodiacal signs, or one sixth of the precession of the equinoxes
The three main pyramids at Giza mimic the stars of Orion's Belt in size and arrangement, as they would have appeared in 10,450 BC
If the Nile is represented by the Milky Way, then the position of the three Pyramids in relationship to the Nile reflects exactly the position of Orion's belt relative to the Milky Way during the time of solstice in 10,500 BC
Each of the Pyramid's four walls, when measured as a straight line, are 9,131 inches long, for a total of 36,524 inches. The exact length of the solar year is 365.24 days
The Great Pyramid's perimeter/height ratio is exactly 2 pi. The pi constant in mathematics was not discovered until much later
The Pyramid is located at the exact center of the Earth's landmass. Its East-West axis lies exactly on the longest land parallel -- passing through Africa, Asia, and America. The longest land meridian, through Asia, Africa, Europe, and Antarctica, also passes right through the Pyramid
The sides of the Pyramid are very slightly and evenly bowed in, or concave. This effect was discovered around 1940 by a pilot taking aerial photos. Today's laser instruments show that all of these perfectly cut and intentionally bowed blocks precisely duplicate the curvature of the earth.
I quoted from Zecharia Sitchin's book "The Stairway to Heaven" earlier in this chapter. In this book, Sitchin makes a very scholarly evaluation of a great deal of evidence concerning Biblical and early Egyptian periods and comes to the conclusion based on this evidence that the Egyptian Gods were not mythical beings, but actually extraterrestrials with extraordinary powers. The bottom line is that there are a great many reasons for why the normal historical viewpoint regarding the construction of the pyramids makes less sense than the story presented by Ra in the Rueckert channelings.
The Cayce Readings indicated that Ra and his female companion Isis were later mythologized into gods by future generations of Egyptians. In my cursory study of Egyptian history for this chapter I found that Ra the Sun God was described by Michael C. Carlos of the Museum of Emory University thusly:
"All Ra had to do was think of a thing and it existed... Of course the people needed a leader, so Ra took human form, and ruled Egypt under the name of Pharaoh. His kingship was long and prosperous, and lasted thousands of years."
And other historical references to Ra:
"Then Ra took on the shape of a man and became the first Pharaoh, ruling over the whole country for thousands and thousands of years, and giving such harvests that forever afterwards the Egyptians spoke of the good things which happened in the time of Ra.
But the time was drawing near when he must leave the earth to reign forever in the heavens, letting the younger gods rule in his place. For dwelling in the form of a man, of a Pharaoh of Egypt, Ra was losing his wisdom; yet he continued to reign, and no one could take his power from him."
"...He shone upon the earth from primeval time [in the form of] the Disk, the prince of light and radiance. He giveth light and radiance. He giveth light unto all peoples. He saileth over heaven and never resteth, and on the morrow his vigour is stablished as before; having become old [to-day], he becometh young again to-morrow. He mastereth the bounds of eternity, he goeth roundabout heaven, and entereth into the Tuat to illumine the two lands which he hath created. A sun god, he was said to command the chariot that rode across the sky during the day. A king, he was the patron of the pharaoh. Ra is the most central god of the Egyptian pantheon...
"...Ra's position in the pantheon is unusual. He is the only god, apart from Osiris, who is definitely said to be not on the earth. Ra, it is said, is an aging god, still powerful, but too old to deal with his children any longer, so he has gone exclusively to the sky to watch over the world..."
"The film is obviously suggesting that this is essentially what happened in ancient Egypt: that Ra and the other gods were extraterrestrials who made a profound impression on the pre-dynastic Egyptians, who then memorialized a catalogue of religious rituals based on these early experiences. These rituals then eventually became solemn and sacred ceremonies carried out by the priests and pharaohs for thousands of years afterwards. According to at least one researcher, this scenario is uncannily close to the truth!"
And in conclusion we repeat the words of Ra as channeled by Rueckert:
We decided to come among your peoples. Your peoples were much unlike us in physical appearance. Thus we did not mix well with the population and were obviously other than they. Our visit was relatively short. This was when we built the pyramids. When we chose this mission among your peoples, we would have been perceived as light had we arrived on earth in our natural form.
"We now feel a great responsibility of helping remove certain distortions that have been given to the law of One. We, as social memory complex or group soul, made contact with a race on your planet which you call Egyptians. We spoke to one who heard and understood (Ra Ta) and was in a position to decree the law of One. However the priests and the peoples of that era quickly distorted our message, robbing it of the compassion with which unity is informed."
And in the next chapter we will learn how Ra is still in communication with mankind through the form of the one who once was Ra-Ta and has reincarnated as none other than David Wilcock...
"Is it not fitting, then, that these (a reference to Ra Ta and his followers) must return? As this priest may develop himself to be in that position, to be in that capacity as a liberator of the world in its relationships to individuals in those periods to come, for he must enter again in that period, or in 1998." (from the Cayce readings)
So let's finally move out of Egypt and into the 20th century. David Wilcock was born on March 8, 1973 in Schenectady, New York. He grew up in a somewhat liberal family with openness to psychic phenomena from the time he was a young boy, compared to Cayce who had a rather narrow fundamentalist Christian upbringing.
Wilcock's childhood was filled with various paranormal phenomena, and he began reading full-length paperback books about ESP and Hypnosis when he was only seven years old (see Figure 5.1) and performing mind-reading psychic demonstrations for his classmates.
Figure 5.1 -- Books that David Wilcock read between ages 7 and 8.
Curiously, Wilcock was inspired to put an American Lung Association Christmas fund drive sticker from 1981 in Harold Sherman's book "How to Make ESP Work For You" (Figure 5.1), thus documenting that he was reading the book by age 8 (Figure 5.2). Both his choice of reading materials, i.e. ESP and hypnosis, and the fact that he put special, time-stamped attention on the chapter of the ESP book related to healing ability, seems to show evidence of subconscious past life memories as Edgar Cayce seeping to the fore.

By Junior High, Wilcock was giving accurate Tarot card readings, by his junior year of high school he was occasionally able to consciously control his dream experiences, and he also wrote some metaphysically inspired fiction during this time.
After a breakthrough in 1993, when an ex-NASA scientist revealed to him (through a friend) that UFOs were indeed real and that humanity had secretly reverse-engineered the technology, he began an all-consuming interest in studying UFOlogy and metaphysics, with as much of his free time as he could generate. He also honed his musical abilities as a percussionist and composer during this time with a minor in jazz studies.
Shortly after his college graduation in 1995, he came across the book "From Elsewhere" by Dr. Scott Mandelker, which discussed the topic of ET souls or "Wanderers." Much of the material in this book regarding the characteristics of Wanderers matched David's personality traits perfectly, and thus he was intrigued that Mandelker placed such emphasis on an obscure series of channelings from a woman named Carla Rueckert called "The Ra Material" or "The Law of One", which were channeled from 1981-1985, and which we've already referred to quite extensively in Chapter Two.
By January of 1996 he owned all of the Law of One books that were available at the time, and began intensively studying the data, finding that he had quite an affinity with it. In fact, he refers to it on his web site as the "penultimate source of UFO wisdom".
Four years of daily dream recording and analysis, followed by an intensive study of the Law of One material, provided the final gateway that attuned his mind for direct ET contact in November 1996 at age 20. He certainly had never expected to receive anything like this, since his interests were more in scientific research than in channeling, and the Law of One series was the first channeled work that he had really taken seriously.
He describes his information-gathering method as somewhat akin to lucid dreaming, where he is being spoken to in a dreamlike state by entities outside of physical view, but remains conscious enough to speak while this is taking place. Unlike Cayce, Wilcock didn't have to fall into a deep sleep to bring his information forward. His channeled source offered quite a bit of premonition-type material, alerting him to the reality of Ascension and of changes that would be occurring in the future. Occasionally he would make very accurate predictions concerning his personal affairs, world events and politics.
As we have already stated, Wilcock had been channeling on a daily basis for an entire year before being told that he was Edgar Cayce's reincarnation in November 1997. This alone had rocked him to his core, and in many senses he very much had wished that it wasn't true, since he was very science-minded and he knew that it would expose him to extreme ridicule. Yet, since he held the Ra Material in such high esteem, nearly 14 additional months would pass before he would be directly informed of any connection between his work and that of Ra.
Had he been given such information any earlier than this, he may have felt slightly overwhelmed, since he was already aware of the Ra-Ta story and of the fact that Ra had apparently worked with him during the Egyptian / Atlantean period. Hence, on Jan 3, 1999, he was given the following information from his source, and you can almost hear his cry of disbelief as it comes through:
Ra: The planet Venus was made as our starting point, designed to open and unfurl an opportunity wherein the source body of a new race could be had. The identity Ra is our identity. We are that social memory complex that you have been striving for. We have desired to speak through this instrument with a maximal desire of increased accuracy and contact for some period of time. We now feel that it is okay for you to be knowledgeable about the nature of the source. It is not similar to the likes of Elvis Presley, where a superstar has died and cannot return. As you are aware, we stated that we would be in the fifth dimension, eagerly awaiting any further attempts at service that we might make.
D: If this is indeed Ra, why then is it so difficult for me to be able to go deep enough to get your unfiltered guidance? Why is it that I have to do this consciously, when it seemed so impossible for Carla to have done that?
Ra: The curvature of space and time is not yet something that you understand, and yet we were capable of grossly manipulating its distortions so as to produce a whole new affair. This new affair centered around the notion of immaculate seniority, creating a feeling within that is vibrationally compatible with those realms of energy that are inherently all around you. Periodically speaking, we find that we have the opportunity for an entity to come along who is able to engender such a maximal desire to serve, and it is at this time that we are then able to produce the greatest results.
It was believed at the time of said readings [namely the Ra Material in 1981] that this situation would be the only ideal circumstance through which contact could be made, but we have found that to be an error. This also has proven to be a venue wherein we are able to continue allowing ourselves to have the messages without needing the elaborate process of deep unconscious trance work. Of course, as you are aware, our messages are filtered somewhat, and thus the end product is not always the same as what you see in said Ra Material.
However, do not doubt yourself in knowing that you have indeed produced much comparable material with us, and that it also is a representation of the blending of foci between our own level and your own. It is through this melding of dimensions that we have been able to take off some more of the scholarly edge that we possessed in the Ra Material and instead turn it into a more completed form in the here and now."
It is also interesting to note that this announcement was within two weeks of the anniversary date for when Ra began speaking through Carla Rueckert, on Jan. 15, 1981. Furthermore, the time interval between these two dates is 18 years, and in physicist Ray Tomes' research on the cycles of time, this is a number that often separates events that are harmonically related to each other.
Now that we know that Ra was working directly with Wilcock behind the scenes, we need to back up in the timeline a bit. Wilcock was living in upstate New York when he was asked by his channeled source to move to Virginia Beach, Virginia in 1997. Virginia Beach happens to be where Edgar Cayce lived for most of his life, and is also the location of the Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE) headquarters, dedicated to the preservation and distribution of Cayce's material.
Wilcock initially assumed that this request was given because Edgar Cayce already marked Virginia Beach as a safe area in the event of world cataclysms. After some degree of "friendly coercion" from his readings, Wilcock decided to make the move. I'm now going to insert an unpublished section of the interview I did with Wilcock for the Spirit of Ma'at magazine:
David Wilcock: "Now right before I had done that, within less than two weeks before I moved, this friend of mine called me up on the phone and said, "You've got to come over to my house. You've got to see something."
I didn't want to go, but he said, "You really need to come over and see this right now." So it turns out that he was a member of the ARE. I had attended a couple of "Search for God" study groups at his house, which are based on Edgar Cayce's channeled material in his later years. So I walk inside, and he brings me to a table, whereupon he slaps down this magazine with a white piece of paper on top of it.
A square was cut out in the middle of the paper, and inside the square is an image of a person's face. As he slapped this magazine down on the table, he said, "Who is this?" I looked at it and said to myself, "Oh, my God! That's my face," but I obviously knew it couldn't be my own face for two reasons.
First of all, it was on a magazine cover, and I had never been published, and second of all it was rendered in this sort of artistic style where it was partly a photograph and partly done over with colored pencil.
Inside my mind I said, "Obviously, that's not me." I then continued by saying to myself, "Okay, well, he's obviously an ARE member. This is typical of the type of artwork that you would see on the cover of the ARE's Venture Inward magazine. Therefore, this must be a picture of Edgar Cayce when he was young." So I finally responded, "Well, that's Edgar Cayce," and he replied, "Well, yeah, but who else is it and who else does it look like?" And after a long pause, I said, "Wow, that's pretty weird."
So it was when I came to Virginia Beach that people who were working in the ARE in various capacities would come up to me and be astonished at my physical resemblance to Edgar Cayce, which is quite stunning, as anyone can see in the photograph. So this type of event started to happen more and more.
Without going into all the details, let me just say that it eventually built up to a crescendo where I said to my readings, "You've got to tell me. Is this true or not? What's going on?" I had to ask two or three times before I really got the answer. When I did get the answer, they said, "Well, we're willing to tell you, but you have to understand that with this answer comes great responsibility."
It's funny, because when you actually read that reading where they are telling me, there is sort of an argument going back and forth between us where I'm saying, "Man, if this is true, then I'm in for some real rough times. Nobody is going to accept this. Nobody is going to believe this."
I had always disliked hearing about people who had claimed to be someone famous in their past lives, and then tried to use that to give themselves some sort of credibility to others in the metaphysical community. I was already aware that Cayce had been through some very grandiose past lives, including the Atlantean high priest Ra-Ta, and that Ra-Ta was predicted to return in 1998. Never in a million years could I have imagined that I would be that person. On the one hand it was rather exciting, but on the other hand it felt like a death sentence.
However, they basically told me that if I didn't let people know about this, and if I didn't start publicizing my private channeling work and try to get it out into the world, such as by the Internet, then I was basically committing the equivalent of a felony in the spiritual realms. So all of a sudden I felt like I had all this responsibility thrust on me, and I can't really say that I enjoyed it. What had always been my own novel little secret had suddenly taken on Earth-shaking importance.
Now I wasn't just David Wilcock, I was a reincarnated historical figure whose previous work was known and revered by millions of people worldwide. Though I was indeed quite psychic and would receive all sorts of information that I was not aware of until after I transcribed my cassettes, Edgar Cayce was widely considered to be "the most accurate psychic of all time" outside of Nostradamus, and those were some very big shoes to fill indeed.
This created the possibility that my own work, character, purpose and destiny would be perpetually judged against Cayce's, instead of being accepted on its own merits. I felt that I could already see the scornful faces and hear the howls of protest as I followed up on my instructions to publicize this information.
If we are to evaluate whether David Wilcock is indeed the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce, we must consider whether the preponderance of evidence would lead a reasonable person to that conclusion. I discovered Wilcock's website in the latter part of 2000, and my first thought was that it was absolutely impossible that he could be Cayce's reincarnation.
Cayce was one of the great influences in my life, and it just seemed absurd that he could be back, and that I had now discovered him. Yet, I was intrigued by the extraordinary similarities between the side-by-side pictures comparing Wilcock's portrait to one of Cayce as a young man. I read a couple of Wilcock's channelings and perceived that great wisdom was contained therein. So, you could say I was hooked. I began a serious study of Wilcock's site, and soon scheduled myself for a reading.
In studying Wilcock's site, the first thing I noticed was that it was rather disorganized. (At the time of this writing, it has started getting better.) And when Wilcock posted the transcription of one of his readings, it would often be interspersed with dream data from a lower level of his consciousness. I found all of this hard to read and confusing because, from paragraph to paragraph, there would be great jumps of consciousness as he vacillated back and forth from his own personal dream to the channeled information. Nevertheless, I continued my study, adopting a neutral attitude and having the faith that truth would eventually surface if it was indeed there to be found.
I bought some Cayce books and read them vociferously, particularly the information about Cayce's own past lives. If Wilcock was in fact Cayce, then I would expect to find many correspondences between Cayce's psychic abilities, personality quirks, and reoccurrence of past-life relationships in the present life of Wilcock. The rest of the first part of this book will be reporting what I actually found and let you, the reader, make your own assessments.
Cayce gave quite an extensive history of his own past lives in his readings. In studying those lives (W.H. Church, Many Happy Returns) I found, to my surprise, that they have not been consistently on a spiral upward to higher consciousness, contrary to what one might expect. For example, in one life he might exhibit a high degree of spiritual awareness and service, while in a later life he might be a wastrel and womanizer. According to the Cayce Readings, as we have already reviewed in chapter 3, Cayce was the high priest Ra-Ta in Egypt, with many psychic and healing powers.
Much later, in eighteenth and nineteenth-century America, Cayce reincarnated two different times as a man named John Bainbridge, who was a gambler, rambler and womanizer. His desire for escapist behavior was so strong that once he drowned the first time, he felt compelled to return and do it all again, even taking the same name. However, at the end of his second incarnation he gave the last of his food to a starving child, thus saving the child while sacrificing his own life. According to the Cayce Readings, such a selfless act of love alleviated a great deal of the karma that he had accumulated as Bainbridge.
And finally, he incarnated as Cayce, the premier psychic/mystic in the history of the Western World. In each lifetime Cayce seemed to have a different role to fulfill or different karma to work out. But even in the John Bainbridge life, he used his amazing psychic ability to beat his gambling partners. Apparently he was able to know what cards the other players at the table were holding. Cayce even gave a demonstration of this same mind reading ability with playing cards to his son Hugh Lynn Cayce. Even more impressively, Bainbridge could teleport the pea from one shell to another in case someone beat him at his own shell game, but Cayce did not demonstrate this ability.
In his readings, Cayce did predict that he would return in 1998, which is the excerpt that opened this chapter. Many Cayce devotees have interpreted this to mean that Cayce would be reborn in 1998. However, Cayce didn't say that he would be reborn: he said that Ra-Ta would return. Wilcock was told in his own trance reading at the end of November 1997 that he was an incarnation of Cayce. And 1998 was the year in which Wilcock introduced himself (but was not taken seriously,) to the ARE (the organization founded by Cayce to perpetuate the information in his readings.)
So with this in mind, we shouldn't expect Wilcock to be a carbon copy of Cayce. He's in a different period of time, and is fulfilling a different mission. But in the greater perspective, his present mission is completely congruent with the mission of Cayce, albeit with a different form of expression. His soul had already proven that psychic ability was real, and by his high degree of accuracy it also made the compelling suggestion that the Earth was gearing up for a massive energetic transformation beginning in 1998.
However, the fruits of this work were shot down by the scientific mainstream, who would monotonously chant that such phenomena are "impossible" because they would "violate the laws of physics." It is no surprise, then, that Cayce would return in a form that would allow him to completely rewrite these physics laws, using known scientific data that was published by Ph.D.-level researchers, to create a Unified model of the cosmos that validated all of his work as Cayce. Remember that Cayce didn't even come close to finishing high school due to his responsibilities to take care of the family farm, whereas Wilcock incarnated with a Ph.D. physicist grandfather and a highly intellectually driven family.
Interestingly enough, after four years of being aware of this connection, Wilcock has still not been overly concerned with convincing anyone that he is the return of Cayce. Instead, he has been very busy with creating a body of work that stands on its own in the face of scientific scrutiny. His website has gotten over 200,000 unique hits at the time of this writing. He's written five online books.
And without mentioning his famous predecessor, he's had several speaking engagements, most notably including more than one appearance on Art Bell's Coast to Coast radio program, with an estimated two to four million listeners on the nights that he had appeared. He is also the Research Director for a national seminar tour with Dr. Scott Mandelker called "The Time of Global Shift," which gives a vivid multimedia presentation that outlines the energetic changes happening to our planet and Solar System at the present time, and shows how they relate to ancient prophecies and the UFO phenomenon.
So, let us now give a quick overview of what David Wilcock is doing that causes so much interest in his work. First of all he is psychic. He claims to be in communication with an entity from another dimension that identifies itself as Ra. Wilcock receives Ra's communications when he is in a semi-conscious trance, which he then records and transcribes. This has been occurring since 1996, and many of these "Ra" readings are posted on Wilcock's web site.
One of the roles that Ra has assumed with Wilcock is that of a teacher and inspirer. Many of the earlier posted readings deal with Ra's assisting and supporting Wilcock in transcending what you might call his lower-self patterns, such as his early college history with drug use and a preoccupation with sex. Some of those transcriptions read like a wise father counseling his son.
You must remember that these readings began when Wilcock was barely out of adolescence. We all are familiar with Cayce as an older and wiser being. It might seem incongruous to imagine the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce battling the inner demons of drugs and sex, but you'll see how the pieces fit together as we progress, keeping in mind that the decadent previous lifetime of Cayce -- John Bainbridge -- was fairly recent.
Another very significant point of data is seen when we compare the positions of the planets at the time of Cayce's birth to the positions of the planets at the time of Wilcock's birth. Wilcock has still not found any astrologer who has ever produced a more compelling case for reincarnation based on astrological connections. Both Cayce and Wilcock were born in the Year of the Ox of the Chinese Zodiac, which alone can only occur once every 12 years.
Furthermore, the positions of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars at the time of Wilcock's birth are literally almost identical to their positions at the time of Cayce's birth. All of the outer planets have some unique and very tight angular relationship to each other, such as 30, 60 or 90 degrees. Astrologer Brian Mc Naughton has independently concluded that there could not possibly have been a more favorable period for Cayce to reincarnate in a 127-year period than at the exact date of Wilcock's birth, March 8, 1973. Once we factor in the similarities in facial appearance with the astrology, the probabilities of all this being pure chance are... well, astronomical.
Wilcock also does readings for others via his source. He will do up to a maximum of about four readings per week if he has the energy, but unlike Cayce, Wilcock's readings do not dwell on health issues or past lives; they mainly address issues of how the being can better connect with their soul, and fulfill their life purpose. As a recipient of one of these readings, I can attest to the high degree of wisdom that was imparted, and if Ra's intrinsic understanding of my own fundamental life issues.
In studying Cayce's own readings concerning his future lives, I came across the following two predictions:
Cayce: "He saw himself back in Virginia Beach." (From a Cayce reading given in Church's book, regarding his own future incarnation.)
Wilcock would end up being very strongly asked by his readings to move to Virginia Beach before he was consciously aware of the Cayce connection. This move was prophesied in the readings almost from the very first day, and Wilcock was only just beginning to suspect a possible connection when he arrived in Virginia Beach. His readings predicted the exact name of the street (Great Neck) he would be living on back in July of that year, and the move wasn't made until October.
They also gave him the German phrase "Scarstahldig" that same July, which turned out to mean "A group of German steel helmets." (Wilcock has never studied German.) Amazingly, the other tenant living with the woman who Wilcock first moved in with in Virginia Beach was a collector of German steel helmets! Furthermore, this man had not even heard about the property yet when the reading was done in July. Just two months after Wilcock met this man, the man found out that his entire helmet collection had been stolen out of its place in storage.
Cayce: "Surrounded by many of those who had been with him at that earlier time..." (Again, from Cayce's reading regarding his future incarnation.)
Cayce predicted that when he would return in 1998, he would be surrounded by many of his earlier associations. Wilcock believes that he has validated this, as he recognized many relationships within his circle as being repeats of previous associates. Oftentimes, his readings had dropped strong hints of these connections before he ever realized what he was being told. In some cases he was able to compare photographs of those in his present life with past life relationships, and he found shocking facial similarities, as seen in Figures 5.3 and 5.4.
Chris R and Jude G are the two oldest and closest friends of David's that he still is in contact with, so these were not just random choices. (As we covered in a previous chapter, Dr. Walter Semkiw has recently completed a study that suggests that there is a facial similarity between one's present appearance and one's appearance in the past life.) Wilcock believes that he has identified the reoccurrence of such Cayce comrades as Morton and Edwin Blumenthal, David Kahn, Dr. Wesley Harrington, and Leslie Cayce (Edgar's father.)
Figure 5.3 -- Morton Blumenthal / Christopher R.
Figure 5.4 -- Edwin Blumenthal / Jude G.
Summary of Important Points:
1. The pieces start to come together. A higher dimensional being -- Ra -- is dedicated to the service of the Earth. Ra made their first appearance 75,000 years ago, and worked (speculation) with Edgar Cayce's prior incarnation Ra-Ta in Egypt 10,500 years ago. There are indications that Ra was the channel that made it possible for Cayce to retrieve such awesome information in his dreams. Ra was received and channeled by Carla Rueckert from 1981-1985 where a lot of parallel and correlative data was brought forward to the Cayce readings.
2. A young man, named David Wilcock, who looks almost exactly like a young Edgar Cayce, is demonstrating psychic and precognitive powers and is informed psychically that his source is Ra and that he is the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce.
3. Wilcock fulfils Cayce's prophecy of the return of Ra-Ta in 1998. He also fulfils the other conditions of living in Virginia Beach and of having his old Cayce associates return to his sphere in this present lifetime.
CAYCE'S ATLANTEAN PAST LIFE AND PROPHESIED RETURN
Those who have studied Edgar Cayce's work in detail know that he had a prominent past life as a priest in Atlantis known as Ra-Ta, who was responsible for transferring the knowledge and records of Atlantis to Egypt, as well as helping to design and construct the Great Pyramid. And, as Dr. Chet Snow writes in his 1989 book, Mass Dreams of the Future,
In a 1934 reading, [number 294-151,] [Edgar Cayce] predicted his own next incarnation here on Earth for 1998. At that time he will return as a "world liberator," helping those still-unenlightened souls to understand the meaning of the New Age, which will include the Second Coming of Christ. In this way he will play a role similar to one he described he had once known in Egypt as the priest Ra-Ta.
BRIEF FAMILY PORTRAIT OF DAVID WILCOCK
David's great-grandfather Frederick Wilcock had a Ph.D. from Harvard University in engineering and a Master's degree in law from Brooklyn Law School, and was the chief architect, engineer and legal advisor responsible for the design and construction of the New York City subway system under the East River:
"The 1910 [Brooklyn Law School] Classbook allows a somewhat deeper glimpse into the diverse backgrounds and personalities of the students... Frederick ("Fredy") Wilcock, born in England in 1873, had graduated Harvard and was a civil engineer and senior assistant for the Public Service Commission on the construction of the [New York City] subway under the East River."
[It is very interesting to point out that Ra-Ta was directly responsible for extensive tunneling beneath the Giza plateau in Egypt, which is only just beginning to be discovered and acknowledged by the mainstream. Giza was to Ra-Ta's period as New York is to our period. Wilcock did not learn of his great-grandfather's achievements until his own grandfather was two months from his death, saying it was a "family secret" that he did not want to brag about. Truth is, Frederick died when Donald F. was 12, and he always felt overshadowed by his father's accomplishments.]
David's grandfather Donald F. Wilcock also had a Ph.D. in engineering and had many patents, including a bulletproof turret design that is now featured on almost every helicopter, in the area where the wings join with the body. He also designed computer programs in Fortran for various engineering problems.
He was highly skeptical of David's findings but began considering them more seriously in the last year of his life, saying, "You know, if you're right about all this, you definitely deserve a Nobel Prize..." Dr. Wilcock encouraged David to expand his solar-system findings out to a larger perspective, which can now be seen in Divine Cosmos.
David's father Donald E. Wilcock chose the field of journalism, and outside of a wide diversity of publishing endeavors including magazines and newspapers, he has written a popular book, "Damn Right I've Got the Blues," which shows how rock and roll music was inspired by the American blues music of the early 20th century, and quite prominently by the guitar work of Buddy Guy when he was still a young man.
His "Northeast Blues Society" has its own publication, which he writes and designs, and is responsible for booking and hosting very well-attended concerts on a regular basis. He has literally interviewed thousands of the world's most famous musicians throughout his career, and David had extensive celebrity exposure while growing up, as he was taken backstage at concerts about once a month.
Both David's grandmother and grandfather on his mother's side were schoolteachers and devout Christians.
David's mother Marta Waterman is a piano and voice teacher and professional musician who performs in New York, Florida and Europe. She amassed quite a library of metaphysical texts, which David began consulting at a very young age, and is directly responsible for David's perfect pitch and musical talent, as well as teaching him spiritual principles.
David's brother Michael Wilcock is a talented artist, musician and teacher, with a B.A. from Syracuse University. Recently he experienced direct ET contact through a ball of light that entered into his room, expanded into a seven-foot wide ascending vortex on the ceiling and then told him, "The Ascension that your brother is writing about will not happen all at once... it is a gradual process, complete with feelings like those you are now experiencing." 12 hours after this happened, Wilcock had a daylight UFO sighting and said, "Now all I need is to have a ball of light (ET intelligence) come into my room." He did not know what had happened to Michael just half a day earlier.
CHRONOLOGICAL LIST OF WILCOCK-CAYCE CONNECTIONS
When David was an infant, his mother could not leave the apartment for even a moment without him crying, even if he had been asleep.
David grew very restless and agitated in his crib any time that Watergate information came on TV.
From about age 2 and onward, David had epic UFO and Atlantis-related dreams and would wake in despair, longing to be back.
David also had spontaneous flashbacks of grandiose, multi-dimensional experiences as a small child, triggered by things such as certain houses, certain objects and toys, certain places, riding in a bus, etc. These triggers put him into profound altered states where he knew that he was here to perform a high-profile spiritual mission on the planet. The experiences usually lasted about a minute and a half or two minutes, and after they ended David had a hard time understanding what they meant with his rational mind.
At age 5, David has a fully conscious out-of-body experience where he traveled feet first out of his room and down the staircase, about a foot beneath the ceiling, before feeling afraid and coming back into his body.
David felt as though he would have been taken somewhere important had he not felt fear and thus had a powerful longing for "one more chance."
David's mother was into metaphysics, having already read "Nature of Personal Reality" by Jane Roberts channeling as "Seth" and the entire Carlos Castenada series of books. She was convinced that David could learn to do OBEs consciously if he really wanted to.
David's desire to induce another OBE led him to read his first adult-length metaphysical book at age 7, "How to Make ESP Work For You" by Harold Sherman.
Within the first week of reading the book, David remote-influenced his friend Eric to wake up in the middle of the night and think of gold as his first thought. Eric reported bolting awake in the pitch blackness of the night, feeling a strong presence in the room. The first thing he thought of was his watch, which was gold. David had no idea that Eric used a watch, not a clock, as a timepiece, since he had never visited Eric's bedroom in waking life. He confirmed all these details at lunchtime before telling Eric about what he had done.
David got a team of friends together who would go around the corner of the kindergarten building and guess a number 1-10. David had 100% accuracy in getting the numbers correctly. This experiment was only conducted once as the other boys were spooked by it.
David had the undying conviction that he could put a jump-rope under his feet and then pull up very hard on either side and he would levitate. He spent hours trying to do this in the driveway or on the playground, since it worked effortlessly in his dreams.
Three or four times a year, David would awaken in the night to a massive internal pressure centered around the ears and the front of his head that felt like a thundering, screaming noise. At the same time, he would experience hallucinations where everything that he saw in three dimensions was rendered on a grid made of luminous light. Sometimes the grids would change shape if he directed his thought at a certain area.
Invariably he would try to make the experiences stop by trying to scream louder than the "noise" inside his head. His mother would hold him and send him healing, nurturing energy through singing for 10-15 minutes in order to make the visions stop. This experience happened the same way roughly 20 different times as a child.
David gave a classroom demonstration of his psychic ability in second grade using a handmade deck of cards that had numbers, words and images on them depending on the card. He did manage to get a few accurate "hits" but not as many as he would have liked. The teacher was happy to have him do it.
The second and third books that David read at age 7 were both about Hypnosis. David felt that Hypnosis and psychic ability were somehow strongly connected. He brought these books to school with paper covered over them for free-reading time while the other children continued reading 22-point font picture books.
David was able to fix numerous appliances that went bad in the house simply by taking them apart, studying them and making changes. His first success was to fix the dryer, and his abilities enhanced when he learned to use a soldering iron.
David was convinced that other people could hear his thoughts as well as he could hear theirs, and thus he would work very hard not to think negative thoughts about anyone if they should arise.
At age 8, David overheard his brother talking in his sleep and felt that important information would be conveyed. He tried to set up a tape recorder to catch these fragments on voice-activation and had some measure of success. He felt that in this state, Michael could potentially answer any question he was asked, although they only slept in the same room while on vacation so he was never able to "catch" it at the right time.
Also at age 8, David took a walkie-talkie and set it next to his father's ear with the volume knob set to 1 while his father napped on the couch in the living room. He then went upstairs and broadcast messages about how delicious a sausage and mushroom pizza would be through the walkie-talkie at a soft volume. He then came back downstairs, whereupon his father then woke up from his slumber and said, "OK boys, how about we go get a sausage and mushroom pizza?" This confirmed scientifically to David and his brother that hypnosis and the power of suggestion really did work.
David continued to reread Sherman's ESP book over and over again. In winter of 1981, still at age 8, David affixed an American Lung Association Christmas stamp above the chapter heading "Your Healing Power," in reference to the use of ESP for healing. This, of course, was what Cayce had done with his ability in the past life. David did not think at the time of how it would prove that he had read the book while still young.
David developed a technique that he called "pulsing" to send a high degree of psychic energy to a person at once. One day he was tormented by a bully on a bicycle while he was walking home from school. As the bully was riding away, David pulsed him with vicious anger energy, and the bully immediately capsized on his bike into a ditch, then quickly getting back on his bicycle again, more embarrassed than hurt.
David went home and cried and apologized to God for misusing his abilities, and never "pulsed" anyone for negative reasons again. [7/1/02: Upon further reflection this turned out not to be entirely true. A few years later, circa 5th grade, David was walking down a busy sidewalk on a summer vacation to Cape Cod, Massachusetts with his parents. A man in his young 20s was riding his bike much too quickly through the crowd, creating a near-guaranteed likelihood that he would hurt someone.
For just a split second, David connected into the man's eyes with great anger and the man immediately capsized and fell off of his bicycle, sliding some eight feet on the sidewalk, not hurting anyone except himself. David spent a long time talking this event out with his parents, and concluded that it was somehow an activation of the man's own karma for the strong possibility of bringing serious injury or death to a small child at the rate he was going. David's father, always the skeptic, believed there was no connection between the two events.]
David was able to repeatedly come home at the exact minute that his mother asked him to after going out on bicycle trips, without ever wearing a watch or checking Sun positions. His friends would be very surprised when it would be exactly 5:00, say, on the clock when they walked into the house. This was the norm, not the exception. On other occasions, when his mother wanted him home but had not specified a time, she would walk out to the end of the driveway and "Send" to him, as she called it. Both he and his brother would feel these calls and come home within five minutes.
David could throw sticks up into the air and then decide on a direction to make them point in as they fell, which they would then do very reliably. He broke the stick on one side so that it formed a clear arrow and would need to have that exact 360-degree orientation in order for the experiment to work.
On several occasions David and his brother were able to use psychic ability together in order to create rain or to start wind blowing.
David was enrolled in the Pyramid Program for Gifted Children in school, and did independent projects in chemistry, astronomy, stargazing, computer programming, crystals and multimedia planetarium presentations all before the sixth grade.
Although he was an A student in every other subject, David refused to memorize multiplication and division tables, as he had the strong feeling that you always needed to recalculate them each time. This of course is a memory of having a multi-dimensional existence, where the laws of mathematics were malleable depending on the coordinates of time, space and dimensional frequency that the entity was in. Though this caused him no end of trouble in timed math tests from third to sixth grade, he scored extremely well on the COGAT tests and was placed in honors math, English and science throughout Jr. High and High school.
David took the SAT in 7th grade and scored 580 verbal, 610 math, putting him ahead of more than 95% of high school seniors.
David experienced many accurate psychic results using Ouija boards, palmistry and Tarot readings beginning in 7th grade, based on his studies. By 9th grade he discontinued any use of the Ouija board due to its potential for abuse and focused his efforts on studying the Tarot, which consistently provided fantastic accuracy and insight.
David read a book entitled "Body Language" in 7th grade that had a massive impact on his life. The book described how the subconscious communicates a person's true feelings through their body language. He immediately began recognizing how frequently this would give information about people's emotions and he learned many new things about interpersonal and group dynamics. This also led him to want to become a psychology major in college.
David's diet was poor and he became overweight beginning in 6th and 7th grade after his parents' divorce. His favorite food at the time was pork hot dogs. Cayce also had a weakness for pork.
David gave in to peer pressure at age 15 and began using marijuana sporadically, which continued until he quit "cold turkey" at age 19. He experienced very intense psychedelic states where he visibly detected geometric patterns of Light, experienced "instantaneous knowledge" about cosmology and astrophysics, had deep and profound realizations about the scandals in government and the damage that was being done to the environment, had a strong sense that an unbelievable energetic shift was coming to the Earth, and audibly heard phenomena that would later become useful in his channeling work.
When David was 16, he went on a strict diet and rigorously lost 85 pounds in nine months, never gaining any of it back afterwards.
At age 16 David read "Lucid Dreaming" and "Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming" by Dr. Stephen LaBerge. He was quickly able to use the "Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreaming" or MILD technique to gain access to fully-conscious dream states where he could levitate, fly, travel through solid objects, perform astounding feats, change his entire surroundings at the snap of a finger, temporarily fulfill his biggest wishes and talk to higher beings while aware that he was out-of-body. Some of these dreams brought him to the main deck of an ET spacecraft.
During this same time period, David asked his friend Jude to administer a dangerous hyperventilation technique that cuts off oxygen to the brain. The technique was only supposed to be done for seven seconds, but David wanted Jude to do fifteen.
David's body collapsed and he was unconscious for about ten or fifteen seconds. However, his own experience was of moving into a completely different lifetime in an clay hut by a river. He had an experience of 24 years of subjective time, reviewing the most important points of that life in linear sequence. At the time of death in that life, he saw his face, which looked similar to his current face but with the nose and lips of an African man.
This was the first time that he remembered who he was in the experience. Later his readings confirmed that he was moved into a past-life review so that he would not see his body lying there in an OBE and be afraid that he had died. The ensuing panic might have endangered his return to his body, which was in tremendous pain and dizziness. The lifetime was in early Sumer and does not appear to have been covered by the Cayce Readings.
David read "The Secrets of Shamanism" and became aware of how seemingly random events could actually be communicating messages in a symbolic language, once properly understood.
At age 16, David experienced his first "ear blast," (actually a sudden, overwhelming energetic pressure in the frontal lobes of the brain, caused by energetic activation,) exactly as the clock turned 3:33. This still happens to him about every other month on average. The experience is completely de-personalizing, with massive kundalini energy shooting up the spine. Historic Catholic accounts of "flying saints" reported that they would get this exact same sensation before they were able to levitate, but David has never demonstrated such ability.
At age 17 David wrote the first of three short science fiction novellas where some of his experiences were processed and written down in an amusing and readable fashion.
From early childhood through until the beginning of college, David would occasionally have experiences of walking and talking while asleep. His parents recalled one occasion where he walked into the bathroom in a trance as a young boy and was very insistent that he had to find the "telephone books" -- a metaphor for contacting the Higher Self.
David sat up in bed on several occasions during his first year of college and would talk directly to his roommate while still asleep, going on about "the water" on one occasion -- another metaphor for spiritual energy. David recalls many occasions where he would wake up, take a shower, pack his bookbag, eat breakfast and leave the side door to go to school, only to realize that it was pitch-black outside. Only then would he realize that he had been in trance the entire time and did not register the times that he was seeing on the clocks.
During a trance induced by high-potency marijuana in college, David was able to play Yahtzee with his suitemates and roll sixes over and over again. The minimum number was three, often four or even all five dice being sixes. This happened at least 10 times in a row. The whole time he was doing this he was impersonating a Southern accent and had a playful attitude about it. Once he got it started, he couldn't get the dice to roll any other way, even if he wanted to get other numbers to stay competitive in the game.
An incredible constellation of synchronicity led David to quit using marijuana on September 21, 1992, just after his sophomore year of college had begun. Just days after quitting, David spontaneously wrote a 22-page essay about Earth being a giant Experiment where each person was learning lessons through free will while being monitored by "Experimenters" who were higher beings.
He was now convinced that such beings had to exist. He also began writing down his dreams in as much detail as possible every morning, hardly ever missing a single morning -- a practice that has continued through to this day with only one major interruption in late 1993 to mid-1994. There are now well over 5000 pages worth of transcribed dreams and psychic readings.
On Thanksgiving break in 1992, David slept over at his friend Jude's house. David had a dreamlike waking vision of being chased by a monstrous fat person that represented his own unhealed issues created from when he was overweight. In the dream he had a gun and could shoot the man chasing him and stop the battle, but didn't want to do it, instead choosing to continue running.
Jude stirred in his bed, completely asleep, and said, "Shoot him... Just shoot him. Two bullets." David had said nothing out loud to indicate what his vision had been. David eventually realized that Jude was the reincarnation of Edwin Blumenthal, whom the readings said had the potential for great psychic gifts.
In December 1992, David spent time with his old marijuana friends and told them that he quit smoking because he felt that he was here for a prominent, public role as a spiritual leader. They doubted him so violently that he eventually stormed out of their house. At the intersection of their street and his, David held out his hands to either side Jesus-style, looked at a spot in the sky and said, "I don't care what anyone thinks. I know that I am here on a very important spiritual mission, and I will perform it." As soon as he said this, a shooting star went directly across his field of view and he had a tremendous "kundalini" experience that went from his feet on through the top of his head, leaving him shivering in ecstasy.
In April 1993, David's friend Ray revealed that his physics professor had worked for NASA in the 60s and early 70s and that it was "common knowledge in the higher echelons" that extraterrestrial spacecraft had crashed on Earth and that the technology had been reverse-engineered to produce fiber optics, LED lights, Teflon, Velcro, Kevlar, infrared night vision, lasers and computer chips.
Other technologies that were found included room-temperature ceramic superconductors, compounds engineered directly at the molecular level, superior nanotechnology achievements, anti-gravity and near-light-speed propulsion and free energy generation. Three main types of ET were found inside the craft, the tallest of which was almost indistinguishable from normal human beings. The knowledge was to be unveiled to the public gradually in order to avoid fear, never by bold official pronouncement "on the front page of the New York Times."
The "NASA Disclosure" event profoundly changed David's entire life. He decided that since the UFO phenomenon was in fact real, there was no better use of his time than to engage in a massive study of it. David began reading five books at a time, finishing one or two a week, which continued from mid-1993 to mid-1996, at which time he began switching over to extensive Internet research. He also cemented his resolve to completely stop watching TV, which had begun in 1991 after starting college.
In fall 1993, David's friend Ray revealed to him the work of Richard Hoagland on the Monuments of Mars. David subsequently bought the book and was utterly fascinated to see geometric alignments that were discovered between the Martian Monuments, the Giza plateau of pyramids in Egypt and certain crop circle formations such as Barbury Castle 1991.
These alignments all described the notion of a tetrahedron, a four-sided pyramid made of equilateral triangles, being placed inside of a sphere. One tip of the tetrahedron would be at the North or South pole, and the other three tips would emerge at 19.5 degrees above or below the Equator of the sphere. Hoagland then showed how energy upwellings occurred at this 19.5-degree point upon the Sun and almost all other planets in the Solar System.
These upwellings included giant volcanoes on solid planets and cloud bands and cyclonic storms on gas planets, such as Jupiter's Great Red Spot and Neptune's Great Dark Spot. David spent untold numbers of hours trying to figure out how a planet could have forces ruling over it in the form of a geometric object. This, of course, was knowledge that he already had applied in his past life as Ra-Ta, the Atlantean-Egyptian priest, and would ultimately become the cornerstone for his own scientific research.
Shortly after finding Hoagland's work, David found "The Great Pyramid Decoded" by Peter Lemesurier. This book also had a profound effect on him as he realized the full scope of technology and knowledge in design that was implemented in the Pyramid's construction. It also detailed how a language of mathematical symbolism was used to create a timeline for major events in human civilization, which had already shown extreme accuracy in the past, such as in the birth of Jesus and the timing of world wars, and continued on into the future, prophesying major spiritual changes ahead.
David began experiencing "numerical synchronicity" almost constantly. He would look at a clock just as it turned to 3:33, 4:44, 11:11, 12:12, et cetera, with no knowledge of what time it would be. This happened at least once or twice a day, and would always seem to be a favorable response to a spiritually-inclined thought that David had just had. After college, it also appeared regularly on license plates, in register tapes from the health food store and on the odometer of his car while driving.
In his senior college year, David began dating a Japanese girl named Yumi, who woke up in trance on several occasions and gave him messages. Two of these messages involved telling him that he was "Shining" while he was reading books such as "Aliens Among Us" by Ruth Montgomery.
The most interesting message was when she woke up, apparently stroking something in her hands and said "Kon no waraji ro katandakedo." David quickly wrote it down and then repeated it back to her in the morning. It translated to "Look at these new warajis (sandals) I just bought." The problem was that warajis are ancient Japanese sandals that haven't been around for over 700 years!
In December 1994, Yumi went back to Japan over winter break, and showed David's picture to a very trusted and highly accurate Shinto priestess and psychic. The woman immediately said, "This man will be very famous. Spiritual leader. Famous spiritual leader." David was obviously very surprised to hear this.
Within a week of David hearing this feedback from the Shinto priestess, he and Yumi attended a concert that featured a female Siberian shamanic throat-singer. The woman could sing a low, growling voice and high-pitched shrieks at the same time, and make her voice sound like it was coming from any area of the auditorium.
David closed his eyes and started to meditate in the front row. At the end of a long, deep exhale, he felt a massive clamping pressure on his chest, as if he had been punched, and could not breathe. Suddenly he was catapulted into a visionary trance, wherein he saw a luminous sphere of light, colored white, yellow, orange and red in decreasing intensity from the center. Within this space he felt that he had the answers to all potential questions that could ever be asked, and he wondered what he should try to take out of this area.
Finally he was allowed to gasp for breath, whereupon he discovered that the woman was standing on the edge of the stage right in front of him, staring at him. As he opened his eyes, she nodded her head and smiled knowingly. Cayce also reported seeing an orb of light when he accessed the "Akashic Records."
David and Yumi separated after college graduation in June 1995, as she returned to Japan. David quickly moved back to his college town after graduation, as almost every dream he had while he was with his family featured that area. He then found the book "We The Arcturians" by Dr. Norma Milanovich and it was the first time that he took any of the "channeled" material seriously.
He was very surprised when the Arcturians advised a strict diet of no meat, no dairy, no white flour, no refined sugar and no preservatives, but he nevertheless began doing it, which took about two years to really ground in as habit. He had already been heading in that direction, having given up dairy and meat a year earlier.
In November 1995, David was fired from a job working in a mental ward because he was "too friendly to the patients." Immediately afterwards he found the book "From Elsewhere" by Dr. Scott Mandelker, which set forth the notion of people having extraterrestrial souls.
David was highly skeptical until he read the 12-part questionnaire at the back of the book, which began with, "You might be an ET soul if the following questions apply to you." No living person had ever understood David's inner psyche as much as this questionnaire had done -- so he bought the book, which seemed to have a noticeable tingle in his hands as he held it.
At the same time, David saw the book "The Mayan Factor" by Jose Arguelles. He opened directly to a page that featured a symbol that he had sculpted into a pin in jewelry class in high school. The meaning given to the symbol, CIB, according to Arguelles, was "Ability to Contact and Communicate with Higher Intelligence."
Two days after David began reading Dr. Mandelker's book, he conducted an automatic writing session with his friend Jude to see if, in fact, he was a Wanderer. Once a deep trance was attained, David's non-writing hand sprang to life while holding the pencil, making a series of very quick movements without any conscious thought. Immediately afterwards, David and Jude turned on the lights.
The words said "Christ Cometh" and gave a Bible quote, EC 40 57, which turned out to be Ecclesiastes 2:22-3:13 expressed in the number of verses counted since the beginning. "EC" was also how Cayce's readings would refer to him by name on many occasions. The entire passage began and ended perfectly in tune with the fact that David had just lost a job. David had nowhere near enough Biblical knowledge to have picked this out on his own.
In January 1996, David again prayed for an answer about whether he was an ET soul or not, and went to bed before his roommate ever came home. The next morning, his roommate Eric was awakened by an anomalous early-morning phone call while David happened to be out starting his car to warm it up before work, which he never normally did.
When David came back into the house, he was very surprised to see Eric awake, and Eric told him that he just had a dream where a man came out of a UFO, spoke on Earth Changes and Ascension and not to be afraid, that "they" were humanity's brothers and sisters. Most of the people panicked and ran. The man eventually threw his arm around David's shoulders and said, "It is very important that you know that he is one of us." Eric had no knowledge of David's prayer the night before.
The best example of synchronicity happened twice in 1996. Both times he had gone to the health food store and had a synchronistic price emerge, such as $9.99 when he wanted not to exceed ten dollars but had not actively tallied the prices of the vegetables and grains he selected. Both times he drove home "the back way," and he experienced a combination of a triple-digit clock synchronicity, such as 4:44, along with a triple or quadruple-digit lineup on his odometer, such as 125555.
Most impressively, both of these moments occurred at the exact same intersection on the way home, just two obscure country streets in the middle of nowhere. David considered that he may be able to have a rendezvous with UFO beings if he went back to that intersection at a certain time during the night, but never had the courage or motivation to pursue it.
Throughout 1996, David had an increasing number of extremely vivid dreams that indicated that the extraterrestrial beings appearing in his dreams wanted to communicate with him somehow. He did not achieve success doing this until November 10, 1996.
At the end of David's very first reading, the source suggested that David travel to the Mesoamerican pyramids through an out-of-body experience. As David was reading this the second time through and came to that spot, the phone rang. It was a man he had met at a UFO conference inviting him to a seminar on "how to induce an out-of-body experience" that was occurring that same day.
Much of the information in David's early readings was highly cryptic, metaphorical and symbolic in its use of words. Much of it seemed to be garbled speech, but it was also communicating some very highly metaphysical concepts. Clues were being given right from the very first session that David was Cayce's return, though he did not figure this out for an entire year.
One of the most blatant clues was "This is a rehearsal for our interaction near Williamsburg (Virginia.)" Other clues were when the source said "I was born in..." and then attempted to give a series of dates, clustering around "1877" which was the year of Cayce's birth.
The very first session also said, "One of our women Theresa, a sibling, inoperative. The Christian, psychically." Five days later, Mother Theresa had a heart attack, and the reading implied that the heart attack was due to extreme success which had made Theresa "psychically inoperative."
Early along the readings warned David that his "road rage" was a serious problem that he needed to correct -- or else. Nevertheless, it continued happening. Finally a car accident was "designed" and prophesied by the readings in advance, in a coded form. The key phrase, spoken on a Tuesday, said, "My gift to the world will be a 3 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper. Expect it on Friday... 90 minutes till 10:00."
At 8:30 am that Friday, David had an accident on a slippery road while driving to a training seminar for his new job. The officer wrote David a ticket on a yellow 3 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper, with the time of the accident listed as 8:30.
Within less than a week of this event, David had several dreams of a fire, only to wake up and realize that indeed the house across the street from him was burning. This came at a time when David was feeling profound inspiration from his own readings and from the book "Seth Speaks" by Jane Roberts, which explained every new experience that David was going through.
Eric was told in an early reading, "You will be happy to know that your student loans for New Paltz have come in." This was strange, because Eric had graduated from New Paltz the previous December and was now going to Albany for a graduate program. Over a month later, New Paltz found an uncashed student loan check for Eric for $900 and phoned his mother about it before sending it. Apparently the envelope had slipped down inside a file cabinet and was discovered when the cabinet was moved.
David received nearly 30 different pieces of data regarding Princess Di's death before it occurred, in dreams and readings. David was not able to put it all together in advance, despite the overwhelming amount of specific information that was given. David's data confirmed that it was an assassination due to her pregnancy with a Muslim man, blending the royal blood, and her overall rebellion against authority.
Expert guidance was given to David for each job that he held, regarding how to handle the environment, what he was supposed to learn from it and how long he would end up staying.
Early in 1997, David finalized his separation from Yumi on the phone long distance, which was extremely difficult and very emotionally brutal. Shortly thereafter in a reading, he heard Japanese-sounding syllables and dictated them into his tape recorder, not expecting them to mean anything. "Yatsu wo ogoshi -- no good. Mo yame koroshi." Upon transcription, the Japanese translated into, "Threatening him is no good. Now stop murdering."
David had nowhere near enough speaking ability in Japanese to have come up with this on his own. He realized that this confirmed his suspicions, pieced together from dreams and visions, that Yumi had been a domineering husband to him as a wife in a past life, and that he had murdered the husband feeling no other way out, only to plunge off a bridge and die soon afterwards out of guilt. The vision also confirmed that the husband was killed by poisoning his soy sauce. Yumi flew back to the US one last time anyway and stayed with friends, and she and David resolved their differences peacefully and lovingly.
Early in 1997, David received many different visions and readings describing aspects of the upcoming Heaven's Gate mass suicide, including the involvement with the alleged companion object to the Hale-Bopp comet. David also kept hearing two words that he interpreted as "Marvin Gate" while receiving this data, the readings giving the hint of "Heaven's Gate" in a metaphorical form. Marvin Gaye, of course, was murdered by his own father, as Applewhite convinced his followers to kill themselves.
In Spring 1997, David joined an Edgar Cayce "Search for God" study group. He felt a strong pull towards Virginia Beach and the A.R.E., hoping possibly to attend Atlantic University. The group was led by Skip Weatherford, an early pioneer in psychic research and hypnotherapist. David showed an uncanny ability to interpret and understand passages in the textbook when no one else did. Surprisingly, Weatherford lived only five minutes driving distance from David's house on country roads, even though it was one of only two local centers for the A.R.E. in the entire Northeast.
Weatherford hypnotized David privately soon after meeting him. On the very first session, David reached down and touched the crystals he always used to channel while Skip plugged in a heater on the wall next to David. At the exact moment that David's hand hit the crystals, a 3-inch-long spark of blue electricity shot out of the wire to the heater that Skip was plugging in. Skip had never experienced this problem before or since and could find nothing wrong with the heater or wire thereafter.
During the reading, the forces apologized for their effects on electromagnetic equipment. Weatherford began asking questions telepathically and the readings answered the questions precisely, and told Skip of their awareness of what was going on.
After the reading, David wanted to show Weatherford a new crop formation online that was in the shape of the Kabala. As Weatherford tried to dial AOL to see it, all the power in his house went out. It stayed out for exactly one hour and then came back on. David had left soon after it went out and was strangely pulled over on the short drive home and written a speeding ticket. This was the readings' way of saying to David, "Don't get too proud."
David had a vision where he saw himself lying in bed doing a reading, with the words "EDGAR CAYCE: THE SLEEPING PROPHET" written above his body in all capital letters. David saw it only as a metaphor, telling him that his work was similar.
By the readings' step by step guidance, David ended up landing a good job at Mohonk Mountain House, a very high-class Victorian resort hotel. He was quickly promoted from Front Desk to Reservations and loved his job and the historic atmosphere.
Eric began doing readings similar to what David's earliest had sounded like, using the same technique. He would wake up while he could still remember his dream vividly and would write down any stray fragments of speech that emerged in his mind, without analyzing or interpreting any of the data. The source called itself "Michael" and spoke in very Christian terms.
David had a bizarre German-sounding phrase come in during the month of July: "Scarstahldig." Eric confirmed that it was German, and it translated into "A group of German steel helmets." David had also received the words "Great Neck" a few days earlier without knowing why. He would learn the implications of these statements in October. He also had a vivid out of body experience where he drove down a road that was lined with trees on either side. This turned out to be a vision of Shore Drive as one heads in to Atlantic Avenue from the North, where the A.R.E. building is.
David felt strongly that he would move to Virginia Beach. This was then confirmed in an out of body experience where he met a woman with gray hair and blue eyes who told him, "You know you have to move, don't you."
David had another OBE where he went to the Akashic Records, seen in this case as an endless hallway lined with library books on either side. David went directly to a section on Edgar Cayce and was astonished to find the incredible amount of information that was available there. His astonishment was so great that he snapped back into his body.
Eric received a reading in German that went well beyond his capacity to speak the language. Translated, it said, "Everyone is leaving the lady's house. A toast to the working fireplace." Their landlady soon tried to get David to sign a one-year lease, thus forcing him to make a decision and leave. (Eric moved into a different apartment and left less than 9 months later.) The rooms that David sold for Mohonk on the phone all had working fireplaces, and David was very disappointed to discover that he would receive a seasonal layoff in the middle of October.
Less than two weeks before leaving New York State, Weatherford called David and said, "You need to come over to my house, right now." David arrived and Weatherford had a magazine with a piece of white paper over it, with a square hole cut out of the paper. Inside the hole was a colored pencil rendering of Edgar Cayce's face from the cover of A.R.E.'s Venture Inward magazine. "Now who is that?" Weatherford said. David answered "Edgar Cayce", although he had never seen a picture of Cayce from that age. "Yeah, but who else does it look like?" Weatherford asked. David acknowledged that it was extremely similar to his own face, but refused to believe it meant anything.
David used the A.R.E.'s volunteer housing list to find his first rental in Virginia Beach with Linda Cornett. Linda's house ended up being off of Old Great Neck Road, which was directly off of Great Neck Road. Amazingly, the other man subletting at the time, Dennis, was a collector of German steel helmets. On the second day, David remembered his reading having said "Great Neck," and he grabbed the book of transcripts and sat at the sofa to try to see if there were other examples of prophecy.
Before he even had a chance to look at his transcripts, his eyes went to the bookshelf where he saw a book entitled, "The History of the German Steel Helmet: 1921-1945." Dennis hadn't even looked at the house until August and did not move in until September, though the German phrase had come through in July. In December he learned that his entire collection of helmets had been stolen out of storage from his hometown.
Across the street from Linda was a relatively high-ranking A.R.E. employee. He heard about David and wanted to meet him right away, and was astonished at the facial resemblance. He later had his boss meet with he and David at the Nawab Indian food restaurant, and at the end of the dinner the boss told David that he "nearly fell over backwards" when he first saw the resemblance of David's face to Cayce. David still wasn't willing to fully believe that there was an Edgar Cayce connection at this point.
The owner of a major business devoted to Cayce's work saw David, and without knowing anything about him, said to his friend, "My God, he looks just like Edgar Cayce!" Later, this man asked for a reading from David to establish "proof," and was angered when the reading chastised him for illicit sexual activity. He did not support David's case after this.
David confronted his readings about the reincarnation issue on November 27, 1997, and they confirmed that it was true, and "with this knowledge comes responsibility -- great responsibility." They told him that he was "not as configured this time for medical readings" and should devote his time to "teaching universal concepts to the masses." David had a hard time believing what they told him and was slightly argumentative as the reading came in.
Soon after this, David began having specific dreams that detailed various aspects of Cayce's life, and he gradually accepted his reincarnation as fact.
David received the name of a well-known local psychic in a reading, as well as the exact name of her son, which was an unusual name, and a warning that he may try to use drugs. His friend arranged a meeting with the woman, who seemed threatened by the whole thing and said David couldn't be Edgar Cayce's return because he occasionally used profanity while speaking and "Edgar never would have done that." More likely, she was afraid of losing her clientele if Edgar Cayce had indeed returned to Virginia Beach. David stopped using any profanity after this, a habit that he had learned from his father.
Throughout all of these experiences, David was working miserable temp-jobs, and did not become self-employed doing readings for others until July 1998.
A friend of David's arranged for him to meet Edgar Evans Cayce, the surviving youngest son of Edgar Cayce, in January 1998. Edgar Evans was extremely rude, and hardly ever looked David in the eye. He would ask David a complicated question, start getting a solid answer and then abruptly cut David off after one or two sentences before he ever had a chance to express his answer, then asking another entirely different question. At the end of the ordeal, Edgar Evans said that though he still didn't believe it, he agreed that David's case was far superior to any other person he had met who claimed to be Edgar Cayce. They have never spoken again.
David attended a Search for God study group in Virginia Beach that Charles Thomas Cayce, the head of the A.R.E., would occasionally attend. David presented Charles Thomas with a packet of prophecy information, including the idea that the Arab-Israeli conflict would grow into a "great war" and that Earth Changes would continue intensifying.
David later presented the A.R.E. with a reading that indicated that if the A.R.E. did not take a more active stance in promoting the existence of Atlantis and the Hall of Records, then negative forces in the Egyptian government would insure that the discoveries and information available would never get to the public. None of the suggestions were taken and the A.R.E. made no attempt to contact him.
One day that January, David decided to cast a comparison chart between the time of Edgar Cayce's birth and that of his own. He was shocked to see the similarity between the two charts. All of the inner planets were in almost the exact same positions on the two charts, and the outer planets were in near-perfect aspects to each other such as square, trine and sextile.
He later realized that both he and Cayce were born in the Year of the Ox in the Chinese Zodiac, and that the vertices or "balance points" of the two charts were in a perfect 180-degree opposition.
In February 1998, David deliberately avoided taking any new temp jobs for three weeks and put together his first edition of his book entitled "Convergence." The book compiled David's years of scientific research into Atlantis, the Global Grid, Ascension and extraterrestrials. It was published on the Great Dreams website in March 1998 and received wonderful public appreciation.
David realized that his ex-housemate Eric was the reincarnation of Edgar's closest friend, David Kahn. He would later discover that his college friend Chris had been Morton Blumenthal, Edgar's chief financial backer. Morton's brother Edwin had reincarnated as David's high school friend Jude. Edgar's original estranged business partner Dr. Wesley Ketchum reincarnated as David's brother Michael, even wearing the same style glasses.
Edgar's father came back as David's father, who wore the same mustache and would only buy clothes at the "Squire Shop." Cayce's father was known to everyone as "The Squire." Edgar's wife Gertrude reincarnated as David's female friend Angelica. In all of these cases there are stunning facial and character similarities, as well as bold hints from the readings that pointed out their relationships.
Edgar and Morton had a major falling-out after the Crash of 1929, after which Morton pulled the plug on funding the Cayce Hospital. Chris, Morton's reincarnation, had come to live with David in Virginia Beach on 70th street, just three blocks from the A.R.E., whose offices are in the hospital. Just before David was to visit the hospital for the first time again in this life, in order to formally present his case to the A.R.E., he and Chris had the most major fight of their entire friendship.
After David presented his case incorporating pictures, astrology charts and many of the psychic stories listed above, the A.R.E. worker given his case said that he did not look like Edgar Cayce, the astrology "meant nothing" and "lots of people come in here from all over the country with great sounding psychic stories like yours and they're all convinced that they're Edgar Cayce."
David also presented the man with a manuscript copy of Convergence, his first effort to put together his scientific material regarding Atlantis, the Great Pyramid, the Global Grid and a scientific method for validating the idea that the Earth is undergoing an energetic transformation, backed up by new, unique research from the Edgar Cayce readings and other sources. The man soon read the manuscript and said it was "nothing special" and that he didn't believe any of it.
Later, through the grapevine, David found out that he had been judged harshly for his marijuana use and the opinion was, "If he is Edgar Cayce, he's too young, nervous and inexperienced to be of any use to us, and his former drug use makes him too politically sensitive to be revealed to our members." Instead, the A.R.E. worker got David selling candy bars at the concession stand for the A.R.E.'s production of the "Man of La Mancha" play.
This was the man's way of "introducing David to the public." Shocked and discouraged at the way he was being treated, David broke off all contact with the man after the play had ended, and only rarely has visited the A.R.E. since then. Joseph Myers confirmed in late 2001 that the A.R.E.'s Board of Directors still has a standing policy in effect to completely ignore David, avoiding either positive or negative press about him and hiding his existence from their 20,000 members.
On July 1, 1998, David received data from dreams, visions and readings that New York might be attacked by a portable nuclear bomb on August 17, 1998. Extreme detail was given about the astrological configurations on that particular day, which turned out to be remarkably correct. His psychic description of the man involved clearly indicates in hindsight that it was Bin Laden.
He was told that he needed to take action on this prophecy as it would disrupt the entire world's spiritual progress if it actually happened. David called the FBI with all the details, and they began maniacally tapping his phone less than a week later. David is still under surveillance to this day, where if he says certain keywords he will hear an audible click, indicating that he is being recorded.
Less than two weeks after David received this data, Bin Laden bombed US embassy buildings in two foreign countries, thus beginning to confirm the accuracy of the prophecy.
Amazingly, August 17 turned out to be the exact day that Clinton first admitted his affair with Monica Lewinsky to the world -- in New York. Grand Central Station had been shut down due to "terrorist threats." Two days later, Clinton bombed Sudan and Afghanistan, due to the previous embassy bombings and in retaliation for an "undisclosed major terrorist strike planned against the United States, confirmed by multiple sources."
In the same July 1, 1998 reading discussing this issue, David received a prophecy that said, "World Trade Center bombing in 1993 really shook things up. Next time it will be a far more serious issue, if the planners have their way." Data regarding these synchronicities was published on the Great Dreams website.
David began a business doing psychic readings in mid-July 1998. Literally within a week, he had enough clients to support himself financially. He charged 60 dollars a client at the time.
David's third client would not talk to him or tell him anything about herself when she came in, so David just started the reading without any chit-chat. David's reading went into great, specific detail about the problems she was having with her health and with her marriage, and what to do about them. When he came out of trance, she was in tears.
By early 1999, David was able to follow the guidance of his readings and establish a webpage online, http://ascension2000.com, where he featured his scientific research, articles, readings and dream interpretations. The site quickly grew in popularity.
David realized that he was having dreams about his clients on the mornings before he was to do their readings. The dreams had extraordinary detail about what the clients' issues were. This led David to begin offering "Dream Readings" off of his webpage, where the client would get to talk to David on the phone for at least an hour in an "intake" conversation, followed by David getting a dream for the person and then doing a psychic reading on audiotape, and a 15-minute follow-up conversation after the reading was received. His initial rate was 80 dollars, then 100, finally 150. He made enough money from this to eke out a living.
Without exception, every dream reading that David performed for his clients had remarkable accuracy and picked out many pieces of data that he had not been told consciously.
One man was flying out to California to apply for a new job and wanted to know if it was a good idea. David's dream went into extremely specific detail, including the structure and mirrored appearance of the building, its position next to a body of water with a small footbridge, the yellow backhoe seen outside the building, what the woman interviewing the man looked, sounded and acted like, what food would be offered to the man, what the office looked like, what the bathroom looked like and the fact that he would walk through a party on the way out.
At the end of the dream, a monster came out of the lake that looked like a combination between Godzilla and a hippopotamus, and destroyed the building entirely. The man was so shocked at how accurately David's dream came true that he was very concerned about the destruction prophecy and booked a flight out of California just hours after he left the interview in haste. The business he was applying to ended up collapsing in the dot-com crash of 2000-2001.
Another dream-reading client contacted David and told him of her frequent UFO experiences, which often happened at night and were of a very intense nature, featuring pulsating sounds and light outside her bedroom window, extraterrestrial presences coming into the room and giving her messages and the like. The night that David did the dream reading for her, she had another of her experiences.
A UFO appeared outside the window with bright light and pulsating noise, and a robed man of light who looked like David appeared before her. This was the first time that a human being had appeared before her in such a vision, and she was convinced that it was David as his Atlantean incarnation of Ra-Ta. The man said to her, "Remember the giant cathedral," and she wrote it down. She burst into tears on the phone the next day as David went into detail about his dream for her, where he was trapped inside of a giant cathedral. She had said nothing to David before he started describing his dream to her.
David had another client who was told in a dream reading that she had been a Mayan priestess in her past life. Her husband was unwilling to perform human sacrifice rituals and thus was killed. After he died, they astrally projected themselves into the bodies of dolphins and whales in order to enjoy each other's company, but it still wasn't enough for the man who longed to be back with her.
After getting the tape, she called him up and reported a dream from two years ago where she was frolicking in the ocean as a whale with another whale named "Elelaka." She ended up leaving the water and turning back into a human, which caused "Elelaka" to be sad. She responded to his protests by saying that "I have to go take care of the children." No dream analysts had been able to figure out exactly what this dream was supposed to mean, but David's bizarre past-life account explained it perfectly.
In another dream reading case, David's client Marshall Dudley awoke with a dream where he had trouble setting up a tripod. Still remembering his dream, he then went out, found the tape from David in the mailbox and listened to it. David's dream also featured a person having difficulty setting up a tripod.
As soon as the reading began, after one standard opening statement it began by saying, "The tripod represents..." et cetera. Marshall was so impressed with this that he paid for David to fly out to Knoxville, Tennessee to do a lecture and workshop at Pellisippi State University, Goins Auditorium. It was David's first out-of-state lecture and was very well attended.
In January 1999 David befriended Dr. Hideo Izumoto, a Shinto teacher and acupuncturist, whose angelic guidance informed him that David was Edgar Cayce's reincarnation. David had never told Hideo anything about such a connection, and was glad that a psychic had independently verified his reincarnation without front-loading.
David had a dream where a maladaptive fragment of his personality was to be "killed" by having a person wearing a clown wig blast him with a bright light. As he woke up and dictated the section about the strange attack, still feeling some residual fear from the dream, a clown wig on the shelf in his closet spontaneously jumped off the shelf and fell to the floor, causing David great fright at first and then great wonderment. This was the most dramatic of an ongoing series of telekinetic events -- which always occurred in a way that left open the possibility that they were "coincidences."
In another example, David had a dream where his old marijuana friend had can-openers for hands and was very sad. David told him that he could still pick things up by putting his hands together. The friend was so excited that he slammed the two can openers together very hard.
At the exact second that the can openers came together, David was awakened by a smashing noise in his room. The clip-on light next to his bed had fallen off of the windowsill, symbolizing "the death of the light." Three days later David learned that his friend Chris had engaged in a very illicit action at that exact time on Friday night. Chris eventually rehabilitated from alcoholism in early 2000, based on David's ongoing counseling.
In July of 1999, David received two cryptic sentences that said, "The vice president considers this his own authorship, while not realizing that he is completely naked. The interim period decides the next victor." The quote was published in two different places on the Internet.
Over a year and a half later, David realized that this was a prophecy of the election crisis of 2000, where Gore thought he could "author" a win for himself in the Presidential election by ordering recounts in Florida. The reading implied that he never had a chance to win, as political elements in Florida were on Bush's side, thus leaving Gore "completely naked."
In 1999, David's companion Sabrina stopped him while he was transcribing his dreams and readings to tell him a story. At this point David was about three months backlogged in transcription. She had visited the A.R.E. over the weekend and met a man who showed her pictures of a building where the top floor had been designed to look like a UFO. David continued transcribing right after Sabrina told him this, and less than a minute later the dream was describing a building where the top floor was designed to look like a UFO.
David called Sabrina into the room and played her the tape immediately, and they were both astonished. This is but one example of many, where David's transcriptions would refer to events that had just unfolded in his life, regardless of when the actual dreams or readings were done. Again, every time David sat down to transcribe this would occur -- it was the norm, not the exception.
in January 2000, world-famous psychic Uri Geller also confirmed that David was Edgar Cayce's reincarnation and publicized it on his website.
Also in January 2000, David discovered "The Wilcock Constant," a single number that is a common denominator for every planetary and solar orbit in the entire Galaxy, down to the second. He was literally "on fire" with excitement about this, and just 24 hours later, the house only 15 feet from his own next door burned down. Cayce also had several occasions where his houses burned down -- one occurred when he was sleeping on a couch, and the couch appeared to be the cause of the fire.
In May 2000, David moved into his current residence. An acquaintance of his needed a place to stay and David ended up hosting him longer than he felt was appropriate. David finally confronted the man and told him that he needed to leave. The day after the man left, a giant tree came down in David's yard over the exact spot that the man's car had been parked, which the man was spending most of each day working on. Had he not left 24 hours before, the car would have been completely ruined. David's landlord has still not replaced the shed that was ruined by this tree fall, which did not even occur in a hurricane, just a rather strong rainstorm.
In late 2000 and early 2001, David had a series of dreams that equated plane crashes with sudden economic collapse. These were published along with readings that warned of an economic crash by summer of 2002 that would be precipitated by "a series of unforeseen catastrophic difficulties" in America. An amazing series of symbolic experiences, psychic data and readings clustered around the September 11th date for the WTC / Pentagon terrorist attack, showing clear prophetic knowledge of the event in advance, which David has preserved in four articles on his website.
Throughout the summer of 2001, David had dreams of houses catching on fire and burning down. After September 11, he received a massive burst of inspiration that led to the creation of The Divine Cosmos as a new book to package his latest research findings. Within two days of this exciting breakthrough, the house right down the street from him burned down, as had now occurred on two previous occasions when David got really excited.
As of February 2002, David is still supported solely on public donations and is finalizing his scientific work by completing "The Divine Cosmos," his third and final book in a trilogy that discusses the concept; the first two being "The Shift of the Ages" of 2000 and "Convergence: The Physics of Ascension" of 2001. [David began doing client readings again in March 2002.]
David's second book was inspired by a rejection letter of the first book from a major publishing company. He eventually followed the suggestions and rewrote the first book. He had a dream where he was referred to as "the father of anti-gravity," and was surprised as he knew nothing about it. What he uncovered when he began looking into it in late 1999 became so substantial that it has now triggered the two additional books, and David has presented a complete scientific basis to explain how technologies involving anti-gravity propulsion and limitless "free energy" from the vacuum are already within humanity's reach.
In December, 2000, David was hired by Dr. Scott Mandelker as the Research Director for the grant-sponsored Time of Global Shift multimedia seminar tour, which presented the core message of David's scientific research to cities throughout the US, featuring a slideshow with new images every 10 to 15 seconds to go along with the lecture.
In January 2001, David discovered the work of Dr. Alexey Dmitriev, who convincingly demonstrated a scientific case that the entire Solar System is showing a continual increase in its energetic charge. This proved to be the final piece of information that proved that David's core hypothesis was correct -- humanity, the Earth and the Solar System itself are on the brink of a sudden burst of evolution, triggered by the Solar System's transit into an area of higher energy in the galaxy.
In April, 2001, David appeared twice within two weeks on the Art Bell international radio program, with an estimated listening audience of 2-4 million people. On the second occasion of April 31, several of his East Coast friends "just happened" to wake up early in the morning and tune into the show without knowing in advance that David was on.
In January 2002, David posted his first complete prophecy article, detailing possible future events and their timelines. Time will tell whether or not they come true. More articles have been released since then, as well as Part One of Divine Cosmos, which had consumed almost all of David's time and attention over the previous half-year.
On the exact day that we released this book for the first time, David's new DSL service for the Internet also began. Since David originally connected to the Internet at 2.2Kbps in 1995, this certainly represents a "raising of vibration" in its own right, pushing the connection speed from 26.4Kbps to 1.544Mbps.
"We believe the Earth today is on the verge of a critical transformation in both its physical form and energy body -- a shift which has been long-predicted throughout the world.
"We believe humanity is at the end of a major cycle of human soul evolution, and that we now stand before a radically new phase of planetary life -- literally, a renaissance of civilization.
"And yet, we each have the freedom to decide if we will join in this momentous event -- for despite the grandeur of the moment, we believe the keys to participation are quite simple...
"Each of us holds the keys, as they are but elements of our own true nature: basic human kindness, open heart and mind, and the desire to build a loving world society. And thus, it is a special time on Earth, a time of global shift."
