Summary of The Source Field Investigations Summary of The Source Field Investigations Reviews for The Source Field Investigations An Excerpt from The Source Field Investigations
Based on a hugely popular Internet documentary, this exploration of historic signs and symbolism determines what the future holds for humanity come 2012.

"If you believe there is no special significance to the year 2012, then prepare yourself for a guided tour through the most incredible scientific mysteries in the modern world, which may be the rediscovery of an ancient system of physics and spirituality that was once widely used and understood, but has since crumbled almost completely into ruin." -The Source Field Investigations

In his documentary The 2012 Enigma-viewed more than two million times- David Wilcock exposed many great secrets: DNA, consciousness science, wormholes, stargate travel, sacred geometry, three-dimensional time, the Mayan calendar, and much more. And in this book, his seminal work, he'll expose even more.

Calling upon fascinating areas of alternative science, Wilcock's unique philosophy connects the human species and the rest of the cosmos, proposing that it is in our power to usher in the Golden Age prophesied in so many ancient cultures and spiritual traditions. Unlike the doom- and-gloom viewpoints depicted in big-budget disaster films, Wilcock believes that 2012 may be a watermark for when a widespread acceptance of a greater reality will begin to occur-and in his book, he lays out many of the blueprints for such a Golden Age.


A Future Beyond Our Wildest Dreams

Since the dawn of self-awareness on Earth, we have been inexorably driven to ask the “big questions”: Who am I? Where did I come from? How did I get here—and where am I going? Various teachers have come along who claimed to have the answers—and our differences of opinion on these overwhelmingly profound concepts have led to many of the greatest sorrows and atrocities in recorded history. Nonetheless, consistent themes emerge in almost all spiritual traditions—including the idea that the Universe is not made of ‘dead’ and inert matter, but is rather a living, conscious Being. This super-intelligence, we are told, has woven the strands of space, time, energy, matter, biology and consciousness together in Its own image. Despite the vastness of the Universe, we all apparently have a personal connection to this majestic Identity—and we will live on long past the death of our physical bodies.

Most spiritual teachings also say we will eventually re-unite with this ‘Oneness’—and even when we walk in complete ignorance of these greater realities, a hidden spiritual curriculum is influencing our lives—and will eventually guide us back Home. We also consistently hear that benevolent super-beings, such as Jesus, Buddha, Krishna and others, have directly intervened in Earth’s history to help show us the way to this greater Truth. As Graham Hancock, Zecharia Sitchin and others have reported, many of the oldest cultures speak of ‘Gods’ who gave them practical assistance—written language, mathematics, astronomy, agriculture, animal husbandry, ethics, law and architecture—including massive stone edifices, built out of impossibly heavy multi-ton blocks, which apparently served some useful purpose. Despite the immense difficulty in duplicating these feats even with today’s technology, these ‘megalithic’ structures appear all over the world.

In our own ‘modern’ era, the awe-inspiring origins of major world religions and spiritual traditions are usually written off as mythology and superstition. Due to the seemingly unresolvable differences between these various philosophical systems, and our ever-increasing desire for information that is provable, Science has replaced Religion as the ultimate arbiter of Truth in many people’s minds—and this formerly majestic, wonderful view of a Divine Cosmos has been dismissed. The Universe has become a giant collection of dead, empty ‘stuff’. Our minds, thoughts and emotions—not to mention all the richness and diversity of species on this planet—are now seen to be the result of sheer coincidence and happenstance in an otherwise unthinking, unfeeling, infinitely cold and depressing void. We have nothing to live for, nothing to look forward to after we die—and even the need for ethics or morality at all becomes a subject of healthy philosophical debate. If we know we can’t escape death, and all we have is this one chance to exist, then why not devote our lives to the pursuit of as much pleasure as we can find? Why not throw ourselves fully and completely into a hedonistic lust for money, power and privilege, and hope we can then pass on these same benefits to our children, who are created from our own bodies?

The more we think we know, the more lonely our lives seem to be. The magic has been stripped away. We have no special abilities or mystical powers. We have nothing to look forward to after we die. We have no one else in the Universe to meet. And before we ever even get the chance to travel out into space on any sustainable basis, we may all perish in a planetary catastrophe—either by our own weapons of mass destruction, or by natural causes we apparently have no ability to control or prevent. A seemingly endless lineup of big-budget disaster movies entertain audiences by threatening the Earth with total annihilation, You may now be listening to the “profits of doom” a little more carefully—and might indeed be wondering if, in fact, all is well.

If you have seen my YouTube documentary that was the genesis for this book entitled 2012 Enigma, my website Divine Cosmos or some of my television appearances, you probably know I do not believe our future is depressing, terrifying or cataclysmic. Instead, I feel our destinies on Earth are being carefully and meticulously guided by a hidden intelligence—a living energy field the entire Universe is built from. Many great researchers have independently discovered this unseen, Universal force and given it their own names, without there ever being a single, unifying standard. Since this may well be the source of all space, time, matter, energy, biology and consciousness in the Universe, the simplest all-inclusive term I use is the Source Field.

This is not a book of philosophy, speculation or wishful thinking—it is a vast synthesis of investigations into the Source Field. I am standing on the shoulders of giants in writing this book, as the overwhelming majority of these findings were developed by Ph.D.’s from accredited universities, who ended up discovering things that often put them at odds with their colleagues, employers and much of the mainstream world. There are also many examples where a scientist or research institute made one specific breakthrough that was released into the mainstream press—but they did not see or understand how well it tied in with so many other related discoveries. In Russia, however, there has been a consistent, focused effort to investigate the Source Field since at least the 1950s—but until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, the vast majority of all these revelations were classified for ‘national security.’ Over ten thousand papers investigating the Source Field were published by 1996 alone, with over half of them from Russia. The implications of what they found are so staggering that I suspect you will be stunned by how much we already know about this unseen force—which influences absolutely everything we see, hear, do and believe.

Why do you think the 2012 prophecies bring hope instead of the Apocalypse?

Two prominent historians, Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend, concluded that a massive number of different ancient myths and spiritual teachings, from all over the world, were “encoded” with information about a 25,920-year cycle in the Earth’s orbit. Each of these myths indicated that Earth would go through a period of great turmoil as this cycle came to an end, but that it would directly usher in a stunning new Golden Age for humanity.

The Mayan Calendar is mathematically synchronized with this same cycle, and it marks the cycle change as occurring on December 21, 2012. Human DNA evolution has moved 100 times faster in the last 5,000 years than any other time in history, and every planet in the Solar System is experiencing dramatic, recent climate change, which appears to be a fulfillment of these prophecies.

Hebrew, Christian and Islamic prophecies of “end times” are all provably derived from very ancient Zoroastrian sources, according to noteworthy historians Boyce and Grenet. They said that the flow of time, as we now know it, would dramatically change—literally affecting the physics of reality—and evil would fade away due to the efforts of the just.

Can you explain how you came to believe in The Source Field?

Many different spiritual teachings, both ancient and modern, proposed that we live in a Divine Cosmos—and that all space, time, matter, energy and biological life is the product of one infinite Mind. The first adult book I read was How to Make ESP Work For You by Harold Sherman, when I was seven years old. I practiced the exercises in his book and got stunning results—proving for myself that we do all have an innate psychic ability that can be developed.

In fifth grade, I found out that Dr. Francis Crick proved that DNA was far too complex to have evolved by random chance. By the time I was a junior in high school I had several successful “lucid dreaming” experiences, in which I was directly experiencing a thought-responsive environment, where I could levitate objects, fly, walk through walls, manifest anything I wanted, or even change my entire environment with the snap of a finger. I couldn’t help but wonder if our own physical reality might adhere to some of these same laws—at least to some degree.

My research efforts dramatically accelerated in college, after a friend of mine revealed that his college physics professor said UFOs were real, they had crashed on this planet, and we had enjoyed a great number of technological breakthroughs as a result, including solid-state transistors, LED lights, and computer chips. Equally surprising was the statement that many of the beings found in these ships were human, looking either just like we do or with only superficial differences.

By 1995 I had read more than three hundred different books on a wide variety of paranormal subjects, including UFOs, Atlantis, poltergeists, spoon bending, ESP, the Loch Ness Monster, etc. I became much more focused on researching these subjects and found that there was a stunning amount of scientific data available that could validate the idea that the Universe is made from a living, conscious Source Field.

Why has so much research from Russia on the healing powers of the pyramids been suppressed over here in the West?

After the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1991, former Soviet scientists had guaranteed financing from the communist system, but there were no wars left to fight. Many different divisions began conducting scientific research in pyramids built by Dr. Alexander Golod, using PVC pipes and fiberglass facing—the tallest of which soared at 144 feet in height. Their results were absolutely stunning. Every type of disease or illness imaginable could be dramatically reduced or even eliminated by the power of the pyramids.

These mainstream Russian scientists submitted their papers to all the best science journals and were invariably turned down. Part of this could be due to the strong bias that most scientists have against groundbreaking new concepts that violate some of their most cherished assumptions. There may also be a deliberate effort in place to suppress this information. The two most profitable businesses on earth are pharmaceuticals and the oil industry, and these discoveries could render both of them nearly obsolete within a fairly short period of time.

The spiritual gateway in human brains seems to be in the pineal gland, which even the Catholic Church seems to have acknowledged centuries ago. Why is this important to us now?

The Source Field Investigations reveals groundbreaking new scientific research proving that the pineal gland is lined with cells that function just like the rods and cones in the retina of the eye. Some scientists have concluded there may be photons releasing inside the pineal gland that are picked up much like the eye, but they don’t understand how this could happen.

Many people report seeing a “silver cord” between their physical body and “astral body” when having an out-of-body experience, and this cord seems to be anchored into the forehead. Photons detected by the astral body travel through the cord and vibrate crystals in the pineal gland, releasing full-color images that the retinal tissue then sends into the brain. Many different ancient cultures placed huge importance on the pineal gland. It may well be that the fleeting visual images we see in our “imagination,” or when “daydreaming,” are in fact direct perceptions of The Source Field via our astral bodies.

Why do you think that all of humanity is living in a lucid dream?

The Source Field appears to be a fluid-like energy field, all throughout the Universe, that powers gravity, time and electromagnetic energy. Dr. Hans Jenny vibrated fluids with tiny particles floating in them and saw beautiful geometric patterns appear. Physical matter forms out of The Source Field this way. All the mysteries of quantum mechanics could be solved by harmonic geometry.

This same geometry appears in the structure and function of the DNA molecule, as well as in the shape of the continents, undersea volcanic ranges and largest mountain ranges here on Earth. It also is responsible for the exact spacing between the planets in the Solar System, the organization of massive “superclusters” of galaxies, and even the locations of gas and dust at the farthest reaches of the Cosmos.

If physical matter is nothing more than a geometric vibration within The Source Field, then that suggests it may not be as “solid” as we think. There is a remarkable amount of evidence that consciousness creates its own “vibrations” in The Source Field, which would then be able to generate geometric structures on its own if focused strongly enough. At our current level of existence, most people do not have the ability to perform “miracles” like this, but it may well be that the transformation Earth is now going through will make it much easier to access such abilities.

What evidence do we have that aliens visited ancient cultures and helped them evolve?

There is overwhelming evidence that “ancient astronauts” visited Earth and used a superior form of technology. Even the best efforts of today have failed to recreate gigantic stone structures like we see all over the world from ancient times.

Over 3,300 different pyramids, stone circles and other “megalithic” sites were all built according to a worldwide geometric pattern. This was initially discovered by Ivan T. Sanderson after he plotted out where all the ships and planes were disappearing on Earth in events similar to those seen in the Bermuda Triangle. A total of twelve equidistant points were identified, forming a simple geometric form called an icosahedron. Russian scientists then found this was the basic building block of a worldwide Grid that every single ancient site was built upon apparently to harness energy these sites were producing.

One of the most intriguing and beguiling ideas in your book is about the DNA phantom effect—what is it and why is it so important?

Dr. Peter Gariaev found that DNA acts like a miniature black hole, absorbing all the photons of light in its vicinity and storing them inside the molecule. When we become sick, the DNA loses photons in the areas where the tissue is affected. This suggests that light plays a far more important role in genetics than we ever had imagined.

Dr. Luc Montagnier announced in 2011 that he was able to transform ordinary water molecules into DNA within a sealed glass tube by simply putting another tube of water with DNA in it next door, and zapping them both with a weak electrical current. This is one of a series of stunning data points suggesting that DNA originates as an energy pattern written into the “spin” of gravity, which then moves atoms and molecules into the proper positions to form life.

This gives dramatic proof that The Source Field is responsible for all life on Earth and that life almost certainly exists throughout the entire Cosmos. Many legitimate discoveries that support this groundbreaking concept have been suppressed for well over a century.

Why did so many prophecies and ancient cultures point to 2012 as a seminal event in human history?

The year 2012 is when a grand 25,920-year earth cycle reaches its completion. At the end of this cycle, The Source Field increases in its speed and complexity, causing an intelligent re-patterning of DNA.

Additionally, there is compelling evidence of prior bursts in human evolution 25,000 years ago with the disappearance of Neanderthals as well as 50,000 years ago, when Earth humans abruptly started making artistic and spiritual tools rather than just focusing on survival. Ancient humans from other planets apparently visited Earth, were seen as “Gods,” and gave prophecies and spiritual teachings to help prepare us for this incredible shift.

Are we able to time travel?

In The Source Field Investigations, compelling new evidence is given that time travel is a natural effect that happens sporadically on Earth, particularly in and around the major “vortex points.”

The spherical orb appears to be a gateway into a parallel reality in which time becomes space and space becomes time. This means that traveling any distance in this parallel reality is equivalent to time travel in our own world. The Source Field Investigations provides remarkable new scientific evidence that the Universe is built like this, and that time travel therefore is a naturally accessible phenomenon. The key is to create enough “spin” within the gravitational field to accelerate atoms over the light-speed boundary, as the book explains.

Why do you believe the governments of the world are ready to disclose what they know about UFO’s?

Apparently, the world’s governments have been cooperating with this ancient plan by releasing bits and pieces of information to let us know the truth. There is a strong desire to avoid a panic and to help us accept that we are not alone in the Universe. I do not believe these people wish to harm us; there is very strong evidence that they have been here all along, guiding and protecting us behind the scenes, including making absolutely sure we will never use nuclear weapons against each other. The Golden Age is within our grasp—and this book is my own best effort to help us pave the way to the future we all deserve.
