Our Philosophy

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, useful and easy-to-read educational and research knowledge for the global community.

What we do

To find this stable and essential knowledge, we perform the following functions:

Where to find the most stable knowledge?

The best places to find stable knowledge is usually in the most controversial areas of science (and religion). This is how we find new discoveries and uncover new knowledge. Beyond that, if the knowledge is already stable, this will be highlighted. However, to be more confident in attaining this stable, more simplified and balanced knowledge, it is essential to challenge the concepts and being prepared to make changes to the existing concepts.

Why the capitalised SUNRISE?

This is an acronym for Search for a UNified Religion in Information for Social Equality.

Why a religion?

While challenging olds concepts is essentially a scientific endeavour, the ultimate aim in all of this work is to find the timeless and changeless knowledge that explains everything, from the smallest detail to the largest scale. When this point is reached and no more can be done to challenge the knowledge and refine it, all we can do is accept, support, record, and teach the knowledge like those individuals do in religion. Then the body of fundamental knowledge may be considered a kind of religion, something that we must accept as the simplest, most stable and balanced knowledge available to humankind until someone else comes along to challenge the knowledge and bring it down to another level. So whether the body of knowledge acquired remains a religion or not is dependent on our attitude, how imaginative we are, and how curious we are to question and find ways to challenge that knowledge. Once we find an avenue to re-test the knowledge, only then can we call it scientific knowledge.

Knowledge consists of concepts. In the world of science, we may call them theories. Or they may be called laws. A classic example of the latter would have to be the laws of electromagnetism. For the concepts that could be subject to further changes, they remain theories.

Laws are considered the closest thing to unchanging beliefs for a scientist (just like a religious person will have his/her own laws). Laws are things that essentially do not change no matter how much time passes and how much effort scientists apply to challenge them.

The same thing can occur in religion. So long as religious leaders have made reasonable efforts to get to the deepest level of all religious knowledge, they should be able to find the true laws that do not change no matter how people try to challenge them.

Having laws as beliefs is not necessarily a bad thing if it means the beliefs are based on solid, highly stable and balanced knowledge. The only question is, how do we know whether we have reached the most stable and balanced knowledge? The answer is simply, we don't. There is a good reason for this. We are not perfect creatures to know the ultimate Truth. How could we? We are not God as religious leaders would say. To be God is like being the ultimate scientist and religious person. But who can say whether someone is truly the greatest person in the universe? No one can. We are children in the universe learning from the greatest Teacher and Classroom that is the universe. There is a reason why we are here and how important it is to strive for a goal in order to become more balanced and knowledgeable creatures in the universe.

Whether something can be considered stable and balanced is up to us to find out. There will be clues to help us along the way. But until we get to this ultimate, stable knowledge, we need people to constantly challenge existing knowledge until we get to the fundamental unchanging knowledge. The ones who will challenge our knowledge will naturally be the curious people. We call them scientists.

At the same time, we need people to write down or remember, and to teach the most stable knowledge to others. We call them religious types. Once religious people find these laws or Truths of the universe, they become beliefs for them, and so will be recorded and presented to others in certain reliable ways.

Scientists too, no matter how much they challenge existing knowledge, must also be somewhat religious in the knowledge. Hence the reason why there are scientific laws. They will have their own reasonably reliable ways to record their knowledge, and must do so religiously as well as learn to communicate this knowledge to others if the knowledge is to be retained and put to good use for future generations.

Once we have all the laws figured out and we choose to accept them as fundamental and unchanging, the body of knowledge forms what is effectively a religion. Perhaps a rational religion for some scientists who must come to accept the knowledge because there is no known way to challenge them. That is fine. It will make these scientists more like a religious people in accepting the knowledge. Nevertheless, it is an inevitable aim of all work to reach the fundamental knowledge. Until someone has the creativity and curiosity to challenge the laws and so return the knowledge to a more scientific level to see if the laws can be disproved or simplified further, at some point the knowledge will have to be stable and seen as a form of religious knowledge.

Is there a benefit to simplifying knowledge?

Yes. Simplifying and getting to the deepest level of scientific (and religious) knowledge should result in a unified theory for explaining everything. Similarly, when one does the same for world religions, we 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 religion in a way that makes perfect sense for scientists as well.

For example, a deep study of Albert Einstein's Unified Field Theory will reveal not only the importance of electromagnetic radiation (or light in its most general sense) and the electromagnetic laws in forming a true unified field theory, but the concept of light also has remarkably similar properties to the concept of God when we listen to Eastern mystics.

Does this mean we have found a link between science and religion through light?

As Kieran Kirk wrote on 12 August 2015:

"Science asks and can get answers for the 'Hows' and the 'Whats'. However, science is also limited in the sorts of questions it can answer. Science can have no answer when it comes to the 'Whys' and the questions of purpose in the universe, as these are questions that will not have answers in the physical natural world. This is where philosophers and theologians have done the bulk of their work throughout history. Questions like "What is the meaning of life?", "What is my purpose?" or "What is my responsibility to those around me?" have always been and will continue to be the domain of the philosophers and theologians. So rather than the battle being described as Science and Religion pitted against each other, the actual scenario is that they describe different aspects of reality."

Until we see this link and get the knowledge to its fundamental level, science and religion must pursue their own seemingly separate areas until it eventually sees this link. For religion, it is to seek the large scale, reproducible and hidden patterns of the universe that is not directly observable through the eyes. For science, it is to see the specific, reproducible and observable patterns of the universe. Observable in the sense that scientists can see them with their own eyes and/or instruments. No doubt we have a number of these patterns recorded in scientific textbooks and journals.

Yet despite the different aspects of reality focussed by each discipline, science and religion will, if we get to the deepest and most stable knowledge, merge in certain key areas once we get to the fundamental knowledge linking all world religions and different scientific disciplines. Once we see this, the only difference between science and religion is going to be in our attitude to solving problems and the decisions we make to see problems and solve them if we believe the knowledge can be challenged, or whether to simply accept the knowledge as being fundamental.

Our attitude will determine whether we become scientists or religious people.

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, electromagnetism is now showing itself to be the most stable and is capable of unifying all of physics. We are at the cusp of a new scientific revolution to simplify all of physics under the umbrella of electromagnetism in the 21st century.

For religion, there are various important concepts we can benefit from (by the more knowledgeable religious leaders over many thousands of years). They include the principle of love and the consequences to come from this both in the immediate sense and over the long-term even beyond our current lives, the concept of balance and unity (called the true unnameable entity for which highly communicative societies with a language would still prefer to assign a word to this, which in the English language is called God, although in Christianity this gets confused by a third entity that seems to arrive on Earth on occasions to pass on certain knowledge to selected old wise men), the existence of opposites in the universe and their cyclic interplay over time and what this means for our lives, and the incessant way the universe and everything in it changes given enough time to help living things change, adapt and become more stable and resilient as if reaching for some ultimate and stable goal, which could be to help us better understand what it is like to be God), and yet despite what we will become, to always remain modest, curious and open-minded by seeing ourselves as children in the universe no matter how far we have travelled in this universe. 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.

What is the aim?

The aim of scientists in finding their own stable knowledge is to find the true unified theory of the universe. Perhaps an equation and/or concept that can explain everything. For religious people, it is to understand the unity that is God, whatever it might be.

The importance of being balanced

At the same time, we need to be careful not to accept blindly everything we see, hear, or learn, especially from religious leaders. This is particularly true of world religions given how fragmented they are (which they shouldn't if they are truly reaching for the true religion of God). World religions have yet to reach a truly simplified and stable position in order to see the links between all the religious (and scientific) knowledge. If done right and people pursue it in this manner, the true nature of God should reveal itself. And even then, no one can be called God. No one is perfect and all-knowing to the deepest level. We don't know the true religion unless we question the knowledge, see the links, and test the concepts. And that requires people to also become a scientist. We need to question the knowledge and challenge it in order to make sure the knowledge is truly fundamental.

The same is true of science.

In the end, we have a choice. The choice to be more balanced in the scientific or religious approach to our work.

The SUNRISE aim

At SUNRISE, we seek a balance between curiosity of questioning things and learning to maintain the knowledge created by humankind until we find the most stable and balanced knowledge, and especially those concepts that are useful in the 21st century and beyond.

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, let alone record what those patterns are or likely to be..

The second step is the thing scientists are highly skilled in doing, which is to use the senses to "observe" the universe, especially through the eyes. 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 eventually recording all this information somewhere for future reference when we need to analyse the information gathered and find unseen patterns. Yet this is not enough to get to the essence of everything we observe.

The third step is best appreciated by the more creative and religious types: the use of our imagination and visualisation skills to not only recognise familiar and observable patterns, but also to go beyond to see in our minds what is less familiar but no less common. 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.

The fourth step is to continually simplify and question this knowledge. Ask yourself, what is really important and unchanging in this knowledge? And is the knowledge correct? 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 in simplifying things is that virtually anyone with basic communication skills can quickly understand the knowledge, and communicate it well to others, 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"

The other benefit of this simplification process is to cover a hidden pattern that allows people to unify many concepts within the knowledge.

And the final step is to record the stable knowledge. You need to keep a record of this knowledge for people to see and refer back to it, so they may challenge the knowledge or learn to accept it if it is truly fundamental.

Acquiring information is just the beginning

One fact must be understood: 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 we all know the effects of having too much information in our daily life. It can easily stop many people from seeing the essential patterns and their relationship with each other in the information that could have enormous and potentially positive benefits to solving many essential problems for humanity.

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 re-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. If we are to solve our social problems and fear of death that is forcing people to do the things we see to the planet, some of these religious concepts need to be brought out and made available to all who wish to learn.

Beyond that, it is up to you to decide whether you believe in things like life after death, a single unifying force of the Universe, the cyclic interplay of opposites, and so on. It is a personal thing on whether to believe these hidden patterns of life and the universe or not. Indeed, religion should be a personal thing. It should not be dictated by others or forced upon us. It is something that we choose to believe once we have questioned things and have found answers. And that will depend on how much observing, visualisation, recording and listening you do in your life. If you do it well, you can uncover these hidden religious patterns in everything you see.

Is knowledge a privilege, or a right?

We often hear certain people say that knowledge is a privilege, mainly from the R-wing types. 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 (and hence potentially reduce costs to society).

But can true and fundamentally stable knowledge be hidden away by a few "privileged" people that you must pay for? 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 that is too simple and all-encompassing to be hidden away. Many people will be able to quickly learn what this knowledge is. Eventually, at some point, such knowledge must be seen as 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. Because, at the end of the day, the knowledge is there to solve problems for the benefit of everyone. 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. No one can tell you you can't. There is no law stopping from from learning and finding out the Truth.

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. To get to this point, we must change. But if we do it right and in the right direction, things will get stable, very stable indeed. It is not like in marketing where constant change is needed to force people to constantly do this or that (mainly for the sake of helping others get rich from your actions). The real and genuine change is the one that brings true stability for everyone. Then finding more changes will get harder and harder.

In the end, the truly fundamental knowledge ensures people are on an equal footing and with no disadvantages for all. And it will be very stable.

Getting to the core knowledge of anything has a habit of doing just that for anyone who pursues this area.
