Making human knowledge stable and accessible to all
SUNRISE Information Services (SUNRISE) is an Australian-owned and operated private research centre aimed at finding the most stable, interesting and easy-to-read educational and research information for the global community.
What we do
We perform the following functions:
- To simplify existing information for easy assimilation and recognition of the core knowledge of greatest stability and usefulness for the 21st century and beyond.
- To apply well-established principles of accelerated learning to the stable knowledge.
- To discover original or new knowledge, insights, or ways of doing things that are likely to increase the stability and simplicity of the core knowledge.
- To give full references (and thus reliability and quality) to the knowledge where other people have contributed to the key aspects of the knowledge.
- To ensure the core knowledge is all-encompassing to the point of being sufficiently unified to explain all things in the simplest way possible, makes common sense, and can be supported by observations and other forms of evidence.
- To further the interests of others in getting to the essence of human knowledge as well as helping those who may be educationally disadvantaged in some way and/or need access education and new ideas.
- To tackle head on controversial subjects (i.e., to be open-minded about any topic).
- To paint a brighter future of where we are heading with this knowledge and the kind of open and balanced society we can all reach for and is considered achievable and realistic for everyone.
- To continuously improve on the quality of the educational and research information and software tools we develop and present as needed to approach a more stable and unified solution.
Where do we look to find this stable knowledge?
The best way to find stable knowledge is to focus on those controversial areas of science (and religion) that are likely to challenge existing concepts of how we look at the Universe, ourselves, and life in general, and to pursue those areas to their ultimate conclusion. It is here, within these controversial areas, where new discoveries will be made, and with it the most stable knowledge of all.
At the same time, it is important to look for the most timeless existing knowledge that has been tried and tested by people, as this will simplify the knowledge or at least give us clues as to where the stable knowledge can be found.
Why the capitalised SUNRISE?
This is really an acronym for Search for a UNified Religion in Information for Social Equality.
Why a religion?
The sum of all scientific theories or religious laws are a body of knowledge that people can retain in their minds for a long time. Depending on how strongly the theories or laws are retained, they can become beliefs. And the totality of all such beliefs can form our personal religion for explaining the world. Should enough people support the same beliefs, we effectively have a movement of people following the same world religion. And whether the beliefs are challenged by asking appropriate questions or is accepted will decide whether people should be called scientists or religious leaders. If it is the former, we have another name for this religion: science.
Whether we call this body of knowledge science or religion, the ultimate aim of all knowledge is to simplify and see the stable patterns in the knowledge.
Can science be a religion?
Yes, there will be times when scientists do become religious. Scientists know that there is scientific knowledge considered so stable that no amount of challenging the concepts can ever change them. Just like religious leaders, scientists do choose the term "laws" to describe some of their own scientific knowledge. As a classic example, we have the laws of electromagnetism to describe the world of electric charges and electromagnetic fields. No longer do scientists see electromagnetism as a bunch of theories needing to be challenged and tested with more and more experiments to see if the concepts stand the test of time. Enough testing has been done to the point where scientists are confident of having reached the fundamental essence, at least in this area of science. Yet the decision to see certain knowledge as laws and not to challenge them does make that aspect of science a religion, and the laws become beliefs for the scientists.
Is there a benefit to simplifying knowledge?
This is the thing. Sure, information can change, and knowledge may be challenged by new scientific experiments and observations. But all knowledge, when brought to its absolute essence, must reach a point where the fundamental concepts never change. It is here where the essential patterns are truly stable and brought to the simplest level where it forms a special body of knowledge, and often described as laws or Truths. Furthermore, simplifying the knowledge to the most stable form has a way of also uncovering a unifying feature in the knowledge, something that scientists are searching for in their quest for a Unified Field Theory. Do the same for world religions and it too should reach a point where we will have the True Religion of God. And when we do, there should even be a link between religion and science. Only then can we answer whether there is a God in a way that makes perfect sense for both scientists and religious leaders.
Where is the source of this knowledge?
Source of this knowledge is from observations of the Universe (the scientific approach) and experiments, and also through deep visualisation and thinking techniques (the religious approach) to help look beyond what we see and so uncover the deeper, more encompassing and often hidden and unifying patterns of greater stability.
What kind of knowledge is revealing itself to be stable?
For science, the laws of electromagnetism are showing itself to be the most stable (and described as laws) and capable of unifying all of physics. Here, the choice of the word "laws" is the scientists' way of saying the knowledge is stable and unchanging no matter how much testing of the knowledge is done.
For religion, there are various important concepts to learn (or body of knowledge understood by the more knowledgeable religious leaders). They include the principle of love, the concept of balance and unity (called the true God), the existence of opposites in the universe and their cyclic interplay over time, and the incessant way the universe and everything in it changes given enough time from the smallest to the largest scale (and yet all living things will still reach for some ultimate and stable goal through these changes, whatever that goal might be precisely and perhaps considered the closest thing we will ever get to understanding God), just to name a few. These are a few typical examples of extremely stable knowledge acquired from world religions that will not change no matter how many experiments and/or how much visualisation is performed to determine the truth.
What happens to science when we get to the fundamental knowledge?
Once scientists reach the level of creating scientific laws in its scientific knowledge, we have reached the point of not being able to unravel deeper truths. Should scientists choose not to question the knowledge further and instead see them as ultimate truths, we enter the religious realm. As we know, religious leaders don't question things. They know it is the natural order of things. They can visualise and see the truth in everything they look at in the universe.
This tells us that whether something is scientific or religious is a state of mind and an attitude of the person holding the knowledge. If people question the knowledge and rigorously test the knowledge because they believe there might be something more fundamental lying at the heart of all human knowledge, we call this science, and the people responsible for questioning, testing, gathering, uncovering, or refining the knowledge are true scientists. However, if we choose not to further question this knowledge and just accept it, we call this the true religion. A rational religion no doubt, but nevertheless a religion. And those who accept the knowledge are called religious people, or religious leaders if they go about teaching others the knowledge.
Scientists, in finding the true unified field theory (and more likely to become a law when we find it), must be prepared for the likelihood that they may not be able to disprove the knowledge. At some point, we must accept this knowledge as the best humans can achieve. In which case, we must also be prepared to act as religious people in accepting and supporting the fundamental knowledge. Once people make the decision to accept the knowledge, science becomes a religion.
At the same time, we need to be careful not to accept everything we see, hear, or learn. World religions as we see them today are not simplified enough to see the links between them all and so get to the heart of all religions. Religious people should not be totally accepting of the knowledge they are given by their religious leaders. We are not God. No one is perfect. We don't know the true religion unless we question the knowledge and test the concepts. And that requires us to become a scientist. We need to question the knowledge and challenge it in order to make sure the knowledge is truly fundamental.
In the end, we choose to be scientific or religious in our work. The aim is to balance the two in our daily lives so that we can reach this fundamental Truth.
The SUNRISE aim
At SUNRISE, we seek a balance between curiosity when finding new and original knowledge or in extracting the stable knowledge in things we already know, and in presenting (and hence accepting to a certain extent) the stable knowledge we can see so as to help other people to know where we are heading (or most likely to be heading). Then we encourage people to apply their own curiosity to help further refine the knowledge until they can see the absolute truth in their own way so as to approach this absolute true in religion/science more quickly.
How do we find the fundamental and stable knowledge?
The first step is knowing how to communicate, both verbally and in writing. If we don't know how to communicate, we can't explain the patterns we see to others.
The second step is what scientists love to do, which is: to use our senses to "observe" the universe. We observe by listening with our ears, looking with our eyes, tasting with our nose and mouth, touching with our hands, using more sensitive instruments to perform these human functions, and recording all this information somewhere for future reference when we need to analyse the information gathered. Yet this is not enough to get to the essence of anything we observe.
The third step is best appreciated by the more creative and religious types, the true leaders in this field: the use of our imagination and visualisation skills to not only recognise familiar patterns, but also to go beyond what we see and are familiar with. For it is in this hidden realm of the human mind do we begin to see the true fundamental patterns within the information, and with it the insight into the true and absolute unifying religion we are seeking.
And the final step is to simplify this knowledge to its very essence. Ask yourself, what is really important and unchanging in this knowledge? It is only when we do this simplification and getting to the essence of all knowledge that we discover certain unexpected benefits. For example, one such benefit is that virtually anyone with basic communication skills can quickly understand the knowledge no matter how diverse or difficult it may seem. As Albert Einstein once said:
"If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough"
Another benefit of this simplification process is to cover a hidden pattern that allows people to unify many concepts within the knowledge.
Acquiring information is just the beginning
It must be understood that information on its own is never useful to anyone. It is just the raw ingredient to a much more important and useful discovery or insight (i.e., the pattern or patterns). Until this information is distilled and transformed (or chipped away like the chisel of a sculptor on a rock) into knowledge (i.e., the recognition of patterns), the information remains essentially useless to us. And too much information can easily stop many people from seeing the essential patterns and their relationship with each other that could ultimately be applied in a positive way to help solve an essential problem for humanity.
Furthermore, certain knowledge can still remain as information because we can still see the knowledge changing over time and, therefore, is no where near the fundamental level all this knowledge needs to be (i.e., unchanging for all eternity). That is why we need curious people to simplify the knowledge and present what is truly stable.
What is SUNRISE seeing from its research?
Our research is indicating a way for science (and world religions) to get to this fundamental knowledge. More remarkably, this knowledge will support a unifying entity called God (1) in religion, but it will require people to define God in a different way by applying a specific natural phenomenon described in the laws of electromagnetism.
As for religion, there are several essential concepts that need to be understood. Beyond that, it is up to you to decide whether you believe in things like life after death. And that will depend on how much visualisation you do in your life when seeing these religious patterns.
Is knowledge a privilege, or a right?
We hear certain people say that knowledge is a privilege. For example, former Australian Education Minister Brendan Nelson was reported by the media as saying:
"I think education is a privilege." (2)
The reality is, people who believe in this view are the ones who wish to exploit the knowledge for their own personal gain (mainly financial) in the hope of maintaining their position of power and wealth. Unfortunately, taking on this view will only deny others the opportunity to use the fundamental knowledge for solving problems of benefit to everyone.
But can true knowledge, especially the most fundamental and simplified kind (the one that becomes absolutely stable), be hidden away by a few "privileged" people? No you can't. It is too easy to understand and too powerful and accessible to everyone who is willing to open their eyes and minds and learn.
True knowledge, when brought down to its very essence, is something we quickly learn is a right for all to enjoy and benefit. It is available to everyone who is willing to listen, learn, record and maintain for all times, as well as for those who wish to be curious and want to improve the knowledge. And most importantly, the knowledge is there to solve problems for the benefit of everyone. Furthermore, if the knowledge is fundamental, it tends to solve problems to the deepest level and in a permanent way. Because of the power this kind of knowledge can bring, it can never favour any one individual or corporation. It is there for the benefit of everyone and everything. Not only that, but there is absolutely no reason why you can't improve on that knowledge if you see a better and more simplified way. You have the right to get the knowledge into a more stable and simpler form for the benefit of everyone.
True knowledge of the fundamental kind, the one that does not change, has always been the great power equalizer. It is the key to creating great change leading to a new and more stable society, and a better one at that, and so bringing to everyone the necessary social equality we are looking for. Yet it is change we must have for it pushes us in the right and more balanced direction. Yes, the world still changes, but it will be understood in a way that helps people to see the stability in all the changes. People with such knowledge will quickly understand how the changing world works and soon see the stable solutions to problems, and with it the stable world formed by those solutions. Others will create changes, but the ultimate goal is to create stability. Anything that does not do this is not heading to the ultimate goal. It is more like marketing. There is no ultimate goal in marketing other than to constantly get you to buy this or that all the time.
In the end, the truly fundamental knowledge ensures people are on an equal footing and with no disadvantages for all.
As they say, we only change when we know it will bring greater stability. Getting to the core knowledge of anything has a habit of doing just that for anyone who pursues this area.
