An Interview with Mike Bara

We are very excited to be able to share an interview with Mike Bara author of The Choice. Mike is an aerospace engineering consultant, lecturer and the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA. He is a frequent speaker at venues including the Bay Area UFO Expo, the Conscious Life Expo, and the CE4 UFO conference in Roswell, New Mexico.

The Choice will be in stores October 15th.

NEW PAGE: What would you say is the central premise of The Choice? What is it all about?

BARA: Well, I call The Choice the “Unified Field Theory” of physics and metaphysics. My premise is that all of the so-called “laws of physics”—Newton, Einstein, and Quantum theory—are wrong. The true physics of the Universe is based on something called hyper-dimensional physics, which includes higher dimensions beyond this one. All energy comes from these higher dimensions, and since our thoughts are nothing but electromagnetic energy, that means that consciousness is also driven by communication with a higher dimension. A higher self, I guess you’d call it. We are connected to these higher dimensions through a field of energy that exists all around us.

NEW PAGE: So I take it you would disagree with Stephen Hawkings’ recent book, The Grand Design, in which he declared that the universe didn’t need a creator to exist?

BARA: Absolutely. I’m completely confident that I can prove there’s no such thing as the laws of physics; therefore I don’t see how Hawking can base his beliefs on them. Just the other day we saw a research paper which showed that one of the key pillars of physics, the fine structure constant, wasn’t constant at all. I predict that all of these basic pillars, like the speed of light being the upper speed limit of the Universe, will all eventually be overturned, and people like Hawking will fade into history. I think it’s really sad that the scientific materialists have so much sway in our society, since so many of their beliefs are based on ideas that have been disproven. People who believe that there is no God or buy into the Darwinian Delusion are going to have a hard time living in the new world that’s going to be revealed in the next decade or so.

NEW PAGE: The tag line for The Choice is

“You know The Secret, now make The Choice.”

What exactly does that mean?

BARA: We all know The Secret was wildly popular because of its promise that, by using the so-called “law of attraction,” you could create any kind of life you wanted. What I show people is that physics doesn’t work that way, and that choice, both conscious and unconscious, is far more powerful than attraction. We are also entering a time when we are all going to have to make a choice about the kind of world we want to live in; the physics of the current age will dictate that. The Secret is great if all you want is big house, a fast car, and a hot girlfriend, but even assuming that [this is] something feasible for you in your life path, it doesn’t do anything for the world at large. The Choice is about putting our collective will to work to choose more than just what we want for ourselves. It’s about choosing for the greater good of the people in our lives and the world around us. That’s far more powerful than just asking for a lot of money to buy a boat or something.

NEW PAGE: I take it that you’re not much of fan of The Secret, then?

BARA: I think it served a purpose, especially by getting young people to start thinking in metaphysical terms. But it can’t deliver what it promises without the other pieces to the puzzle. I think it can make people feel like there’s something wrong with them, like they aren’t able to do it right. In my next book, The Gift, I will take The Secret on directly and show people why it doesn’t work.

NEW PAGE: You say in the book that there is substantial scientific proof of what you call the “God Force” all around us. What is that proof?

BARA: There are lots of experiments which the mainstream scientists simply ignore, [experiments] that prove that there is an “Aether” all around us that binds us together and links everything we experience in this reality. In The Choice, I talk about some of the most interesting ones, like the work of Cleve Backster on plant consciousness and experiments on free swinging pendulums during eclipses. These and many others I cite in the book prove that there is no such thing as empty space, or the vacuum. We are all surrounded by this powerful field of energy. Some people, like David Wilcock, like to describe it as a conscious field of energy, but I disagree. It’s more of a field of energy that is consciously responsive to our hopes, dreams, and true desires.

NEW PAGE: You also say that astrology is real. How can you prove that?

BARA: I don’t have to—others already have. In the 1950s, RCA had an engineer named John Nelson conduct a study on why short-wave radio signals varied in quality at different times of the year. What he found was that the positions of the planets, especially the Jovian planets—Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus—had a major impact on the sun’s energy output. Not only that, but when the planets were in alignments that corresponded to positive aspects in astrology, the signals were better. When the alignments were in potentially negative astrological aspects, the solar storms got worse and the radio signals did also. My coauthor on Dark Mission, Richard C. Hoagland, also conducted some experiments which showed that planetary alignments effected electrical instruments and energy output. There’s absolutely nothing in mainstream physics which can explain any of that!

NEW PAGE: You keep mentioning that the physics dictate that we are in a time of change. Does any of that have to do with the Mayan calendar ending in 2012? Did the Mayans predict the world would end in 2012?

BARA: What hyper-dimensional physics says is that the alignments and positions of the planets dictate the physical reality—and our consciousness—here on earth. As we head into what I call the “2012 era,” it certainly looks like we are going to be forced to take sides. We are all going to have to choose the material or the spiritual, the intellect or the heart. In The Choice I talk about the true meaning of the word apocalypse, that it really just means a lifting of the veil, a time when things will be revealed. When these revelations happen, and they have already started, we are all going to have to make our choice. Now if you look at the upcoming astronomical alignments in astrological terms, they all show increasing cultural polarization, new questioning of our long-held beliefs about a lot of things, and a series of upheavals which may be dramatic or traumatic. It just depends on what we choose for ourselves as a people and as a planet. The apocalypse is not something that happens to you, it’s something you get to actively participate in. The question is, which path will we choose?

As to the Mayans and the end of the world, all they really have to say about 2012 is that Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent god, will ride a “serpent rope” from the center of the galaxy and will manifest in our 3D reality to judge us on that day. What I show in The Choice is that this “serpent rope” is a torsion beam, a pulse of energy from the alignment with the center of the galaxy. But the judgment is not, I believe, anything like the biblical Day of Judgment. What Quetzalcoatl will be judging is our intent for the planet we live on. If we are mired in fear, scarcity, and selfishness, then I think some of the negative physical earth changes are a distinct possibility. But if we bathe ourselves in love, light, and compassion, I think it will be something very different, very much better. It’s really up to us. The Mayan prophecies talk about each of us facing a “Hall of Mirrors” where we must confront our true selves. So I think the judgment they speak of is first our judgment of ourselves, and then Quetzalcoatl’s judgment of our intent as a planet.

NEW PAGE: Did other ancient cultures also view this period in history as important?

BARA: Yes. In the book I talk about the Hindu-Vedic Yuga cycles, and how they also end right in the same period. They also speak of the period in terms of sweeping change and of moving from the negative Kali Yuga age to the positive golden age. The Hopi Indians of the Southwest also see a period of change coming, and a time when we will have to make a choice. What I think is imperative is that we all realize this change is not only coming, it’s already begun, and the sooner we adapt to it, the sooner we can focus on the change coming out the way we want it to.

NEW PAGE: Do you think that the often cited alignment of the solar system with the center of the galaxy in 2012 will have an effect on us here on earth?

BARA: The physics says it will. Richard C. Hoagland has conducted a number of hyper-dimensional physics experiments which show that the yearly alignment with the galactic center causes ripples or pulses in the energy field around the planet. As we build up to 2012, and beyond to 2023 (which is when the Vedas say the Yuga cycles shift), this alignment and the alignments on other certain days of the calendar will be days of special importance, days when we can set the intent of the planet and give our desires an amplified effect.

NEW PAGE: Can you give us some days in particular?

BARA: Yes. The last big date was November 9, 2009. That was when, by Carl Calleman’s reading of the Mayan calendar, we transitioned from the sixth day to the sixth night of the current phase of the calendar. I myself had a really profound spiritual experience within about 30 minutes of the calendar changing over. That’s when I began to realize that all of this stuff was real, and that the physics was dictating my consciousness along with everybody else’s. I chose in that moment to write the book. The next big dates coming up are the eclipse on December 21, 2010, exactly two years to the day before the end of the long-count calendar cycle, and then there are several dates in 2012. I plan to arrange special events for each of these upcoming dates.

NEW PAGE: You say these alignments will affect our consciousness. Can you describe how? How do our individual choices affect what happens to the planet?

BARA: Well, my experience is a prime example. What’s going to happen is people are going to start waking up. It’s already happening. People I would never in a million years expect to care about these things are asking questions about 2012 and the Mayans and such. I live in LA, and you can meet some of the most shallow, materialistic people on the face of the earth here, but even they are beginning to see the light.

We have to understand that each of us matters. Our collective spiritual energy is far more powerful than all the world’s nuclear arsenals combined. What I tell each of us to do in The Choice is choose a path. I don’t care if you’re Catholic, Buddhist, Mormon, or if you choose to pray to aliens. Just pick something, go to that quiet place in your heart, and tell the Universe what you want—not just for yourself, but for your loved ones and the community around you, and for the world.

NEW PAGE: Where will you be on December 21, 2012, when the Mayan calendar ends?

BARA: A year ago, before the experience that prompted me to write The Choice, I would have told you I’d be in Vegas throwing down everything I had on 33 on the roulette wheel. Now, all I want to be in a quiet, private place with the person I love, and just be. That’s my choice.
