When J.L. Mee came home to Long Island from college on spring break in March, 1969, he went out to the Hamptons with his sister and mother to visit family there for a few days. On their way back home on Sunday, March 23, they passed through Bay Shore around dusk and stopped for a visit. They met his sister’s new friend, Rita, and her brother, Mark, who was also home from college.
While their mothers socialized, the four students went for a long walk around the neighborhood, and to their astonishment, they saw a rare, breathtaking, full-color aurora borealis. The aurora looked like curtains of multicolored light hanging down from the heavens, stretching a hundred miles up into the sky. The next day, the spectacular aurora was reported in 81 newspapers.
When J.L. Mee returned there four months later, he had a six hour out-of-body experience during meditation which shaped the rest of his life. This illustration shows what a really terrific, top-of-the-line, out-of-body experience looks like. The spiritual being is connected to its body by a silver cord. The being is surrounded on all sides by space (instead of being inside of a solid human body). You can imagine how wonderful this freedom would feel.
A being in this state can have one hundred times its normal level of awareness. To gauge this, imagine how it would feel to have ten times your current level of awareness-of-awareness. Then - multiply that by ten. Imagine yourself in this picture. You are the radiant sphere of awareness floating in the space of the room.
As he ascended further from this state, he eventually left the physical universe and became a bubble of awareness floating in a sea of awareness. He was pure awareness inside the bubble, and pure awareness surrounded him outside the bubble. The bubble membrane was his identity as an individual being.
The field of awareness around him extended infinitely in all directions, and it was self-aware. This was Divine Intelligence, the body of God. The physical universe was far below. It looked like a large, sparkling diamond against a backdrop of black velvet.
He describes this experience as "ten thousand times more real than anything else in my life," and it is documented in the manuscript for Cognitive Engineering.
Body of work
The following body of work arose from this experience:
● A new awareness science for the Third Millennium called cognitive physics.
● A new science for consciously creating brighter future lives called trans-life psychology.
● An A.I. system architecture for carrying knowledge into future lives called trans-life memory systems.
● A computer architecture for building perpetual family, social and business networks called continual networks.
● A new science combining cognitive physics and genetic engineering to elevate human awareness called cognitive
In all, these are works of extraordinary spiritual power which can accelerate the awakening of humanity.
It was not likely that the author would ever witness an aurora at all, as the northern lights are not normally seen in these latitudes. It was even more improbable the aurora he saw would be as magnificent as it was. (News reports called it the most spectacular display in since 1941.) However, thousands of people on Long Island saw the aurora that night, so J.L. Mee’s sighting, while unlikely, was not unique.
What is unusual is that he saw the aurora on his first visit to Bay Shore, and that his second visit four months later transported him into Divine union. The odds of anyone entering Divine union during a lifetime at this stage in human evolution are remote to say the least. Overlaying the aurora on top of this yields a probability which is astronomical.
Was the Bay Shore aurora a heavenly sign? When asked to interpret the event, Mr. Mee demurs. “I’m not here to tell other people what to think,” he says. “I encourage others to draw their own conclusions. I’ll let the facts speak for themselves.”
