The central purpose of Dhushara Research is to maintain a cutting-edge scientific description of reality, particularly in relation to biological life and subjective consciousness, which is optimally conducive to human and natural survival, facilitating a 'soft-landing' in terms of human impact for the closing circle of the biosphere, transcending traditional religious imperatives. This program maintains several central articles which are continuously updated in real time as new research emerges, as indicated by their genotype.
Quantum Reality and Cosmology overviews quantum entanglement and the cosmological processes shaping both the fundamental wave-particle forces of nature and the universe at large.
Biocosmology overviews discovering how life emerges as an interactive consequence of cosmological symmetry-breaking of the fundamental forces, with combined astronomical, chemical, and biological evidence for a fractal informational phase transition to replicative life.
Tree of Life: Tangled Roots and Sexy Shoots traces the genetic and evolutionary pathways from the last universal common ancestor of life on Earth to Homo sapiens, emphasizing the role of evolution in the diversification of life and conscious intelligence.
Subjective consciousness becomes the next major focus:
Religious traditions and their imposition of patriarchal sexual imperatives are examined in detail in several further chapters of Sexual Paradox.
Transcending Religion: Two key articles deal with complementing the scientific description in enlightened human decision-making protecting the planet and its living generations.
Nature, Violence, Consciousness, Sexuality and World Religion overviews the conflicts and contradictions arising from religious imperatives. It is a critiquie of traditional religious descriptions and the often violent realities they try to impose on humanity, and women in particular, in conflict with human survival as a species.
The Resplendence Codex resolves this existential crisis by outling a prospective Tao or way of life complementary to the natural description, healing the biosphere, entitled resplendence for its verdant reflowering of natrual diversity. Resplendence provides resolution in a comprehensive view of reality and the meaning and purpose of life, complementing science and nature.
Resplendence is a cross-generational way of life,transcending the implicit bondage of religion, while complementing the scientific description of reality and nature in a way which is conducive to human survival and the survival of life's diversity in a resplendent paradaisical climax biosphere.
The Resplendence Codex2015 This article investigates how the quest for apocalypse compromises our ability to care for the natural diversity and viability of the planet in resplendence and how a change of paradigm could solve this.
Religion, Politics, Sexual Reproduction and the Future of Human Society8-2015 This article provides an in depth investigation of the causes and solutions of the serious long-term instabilites facing human society including climate change,resource depletion habitat destriction and over-population in terms of fertility, and the effects of religion and politics on human ability to deal with future change.
The Hyperactive Resting Brain on MEG 7-2015 A two minute MEG profile of a subject in the resting state from the Human Connectome Project generated using wavelet transforms to show interactions between alpha, beta and gamma oscillations suggesting wave coherence processing as occurs in quantum processes.
Nature, Violence, Consciousness, Sexuality and World Religion10-2014 This article is an unveiling expose of the lethal fallacies that underly the religious traditions which between them are followed by a majority of people on this planet, which between them constitute one of the most principal threats to the future survival of humanity.
Biocosmology1978-2016 How cosmic symmetry-breaking leads to the origin and evolution of life as an interactive product, with all the latest experimental research from stardust to the last universal common ancestor.
The Tree of Life: Tangled Roots and Sexy Shoots:2009-2015Tracing the genetic pathway from the first eucaryotes to Homo sapiens. a fully referenced research review to overview progress in unraveling the details of the evolutionary Tree of Life, from life's first occurrence in the hypothetical RNA-era, to humanity's own emergence and diversification, through migration and intermarriage, using research diagrams and brief discussion of the current state of the art, in response to summaries of some of these developments.
Space, Time and Consciousness2-2015 This paper presents a potential mechanism for the conscious brain to anticipate impending opportunities and threats to survival through massively parallel weak quantum measurement (MPWQM) induced by the combined effects of edge of chaos sensitivity and phase coherence sampling of brain states. It concludes that the underpinnings of this process emerged in single-celled eucaryotes.
Sex, Genes, Politics and Company Law: Can Capitalist Democracy coexist with Human Survival?8-2013This article investigates whether electoral democracy and capitalist corporate activity can provide any basis for long-term economic and ecological sustainability. We shall also examine how both capitalism and democracy are manifestly social products of the male gender to the exclusion of the immortal sex men live their lives to fertilize and seek the keys to an ecological completion of the economic quest for a life of natural abundance.
The Cosmology of Conscious Mental States5-2013We explore the diversity of mental states, and examine to what extent these are both a product of specific known brain processes and yet may access a complementary aspect of existence to the cosmology of the physical universe and its natural biosystems, potentially giving mental states an existential cosmological status.
Entheogens, the Conscious Brain and Existential Reality2012-2015A state of the art research overview of what is currently known about how entheogens, including the classic psychedelics, affect the brain and transform conscious experience through their altered serotonin receptor dynamics, and to explore their implications for understanding the conscious brain and its relationship to existential reality, and their potential utility in our cultural maturation and understanding of the place of sentient life in the universe. Entheogens, Culture and the Conscious Brain(27 min video) 2012A companion video with source footage of the cultural traditions, as well as the scientific discoveries.
Deus ex Machina and the Conscious Cosmos2-2014 The concept of “god in the machine” evokes all the paradoxes of nature and existence, from religious creationism to mechanistic atheism. We use this evocative notion to escape from the contradictions of current world views and to discover the roots of our transformative consciousness.
The Central Enigma of Consciousness 2008 The nature and physical basis of consciousness remains the central enigma of the scientific description of reality in the third millennium. This paper seeks to examine the phenomenal nature of consciousness and elucidate a possible biophysical basis for its existence, in terms of a form of quantum anticipation based on entangled states driven by chaotic sensitivity of global brain states during decision-making processes.
A Taboo Kind of Retirement Apology 12th Nov 2009 In the emerging tradition of lightning electronic publication, this is a illustrated research version of my farewell speech with live links to the current ground-breaking developments mentioned and research papers, including live research overviews on the origins of life, the evolutionary tree of life and the conscious brain
Sexual Paradox: Complementarity, Reproductive Conflict and Human Emergence (2003-2011)
"Sexual Paradox" unveils the subterranean realities underlying our cultural future. It is a book about sexual paradox, the nemesis of our pretensions, yet the genesis of our living destinies. It demonstrates that sexual paradox is at the core of all descriptions of reality, lurking in the quantum realm and in the relationship between body and mind as much as in our hormone-steeped bodies and rising pulses. It presents the idea of sexual paradox as a cosmic principle spanning the widest realms, from physics, through biology to our social futures.
Although human culture appears to have flowered through runaway aspects of sexual paradox in human evolutionary origins among gatherer-hunter clans, a male reaction has subsequently occurred from the earliest foundings of Jericho and Sumeria with the growth of militarized urban societies, through the great civilizations of the East and West to the present day. Patterns of male sexual domination lead to breakdown into ordered patterns of control, and often of repression, violence, and genocide which culminate in planetary rape and exploitation and compromise the living genesis and emergence in complexity sexual paradox evokes. We explore, along with sexual paradox, all the many ways in which its breakdown leads to double jeopardy and how sexual paradox is a koan and oracle for our social transformation to a sustainable society.
The Physics and Computational Exploration of Zeta and L-functions This article presents a spectrum of 4-D global portraits of a diversity of zeta and L-functions, using currently devised numerical methods and explores the implications of these functions in enriching the understanding of diverse areas in physics, from thermodynamics, and phase transitions, through quantum chaos to cosmology. The Riemann hypothesis is explored from both sides of the divide, comparing cases where the hypothesis remains unproven, such as the Riemann zeta function, with cases where it has been proven true, such as Selberg zeta functions.
Taming Riemann's Tiger: Has a young Indian i-Phone Programmer Solved the Most Challenging Enigma in Mathematics?
A Dynamical Key to the Riemann HypothesisMay 2011 This note sets out a dynamical basis for the non-trivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function being on the critical line x = 1⁄2. It does not prove the Riemann Hypothesis (RH), but it does give a dynamical explanation for why zeta and the Dirichlet L-functions do have their non-trivial zeros on the critical line and why other closely related functions do not. It suggests RH is an additional unprovable postulate of the number system, similar to the axiom of choice, associated with the limiting behavior of the primes as .
Fractal Geography of the Zeta Function Mar 2011 http://arxiv.org/abs/1103.5274. The quadratic Mandelbrot set has been referred to as the most complex and beautiful object in mathematics and the Riemann Zeta function takes the prize for the most complicated and enigmatic function. Here we elucidate the spectrum of Mandelbrot and Julia sets of Zeta, to unearth the geography of its chaotic and fractal diversities, combining these two extremes into one intrepid journey into the deepest abyss of complex function space.
Exploding the Dark Heart of Chaos: March 2009 An exploration of the universality of the cardioid at the centre of the Mandelbrot set extended to the diversity of complex analytic functions with Mac XCode applications and Quicktime movies illustrating each example.
Exploring Quantum and Classical Chaos in the Stadium Billiard 9 July 2009This paper explores quantum and classical chaos in the stadium billiard using Matlab simulations to investigate the behavior of wave functions in the stadium and the corresponding classical orbits believed to underlie wave function scarring.
The 'Core' Concept and the Mathematical Mind4th Feb 2007 PDFThis paper examines a variety of evidence from brain studies of mathematical cognition, from mathematics in early child development, from studies of the gatherer-hunter mind, from a variety of puzzles, games and other human activities, from theories emerging from physical cosmology, and from burgeoning mathematical resources on the internet that suggest that mathematics is more akin to a maze than a focally-based hierarchy, that topology, geometry and dynamics are fundamental to the human mathematical mind.

Genesis of Eden Biodiversity, nuclear and phytochemical issues updated 2011
Consumating the apocalyptic tradition in scientific cosmology.
Contains pages on diverse areas, from quantum physics, through neuroscience and biodiversity, to the cultural and religious dimensions of the Fall from Eden, our wider cultural and religious heitage and our apocalyptic coming of age.
A numinous investigation into the cultural origins religious traditions and their relationship with the Tree of Life of living diversity and the sexual reunion of woman and man with chapters outlining my millennial sabbatical to the Amazon and Jerusalem to culminate the apocalyptic epoch of the messiah and catalyse the sustainable epoch of the Tree.
The Tree of Life stands as the secret of the apocalypse. In our cultural emergence, we entered free-fall from natural diversity, leading ultimately to our awakening as a cosmic species. In this awakening we discover the nature of intent and taking personal responsibility for the Earth's living future.
This future is in turn a product of how well we guard the evolutionary tree from threats within and beyond Earth and how richly we provide for its future ramifications. The dangers for the tree of life are immense. From its first beginnings in the felled Huluppu Tree of Sumeria and before that in the first gatherers of the Rift Valley, the tree and its diversity have been under constant threat.
Natural Sacraments: The potential role of the so-called 'power plants' in helping humanity arrive at a new paradigm of long-term future goodness in nurturing a sustainable planet of living diversity for the generations of the future. Recent scientific studies have confirmed that non drug-abusing study participants report genuine transformative experiences which have improved and integrated their lives when given the opportunity to partake of natural sacraments in a positive experimental setting.
A Fatwa on Purdah: Unveiling Niqab, Burqa, Chador and HijabThis article is a fatwa to unveil the veil and liberate the world from violent and lethal punishments for adultery. It is designed to be explanatory, for Muslims, and non-Muslims alike, on the status of the veil, and its more oppressive forms. If you are a Muslim, it is set out as a valid religious opinion. If you are not a Muslim, its grounds are human common sense and compassion, so that women will not have to walk one-eyed.
The anointed of the resurrection is born under a bad sign, a planetary apocalypse amid a verdant paradise,
the sweet-smelling myrrh on the handles of the lock, the mushroom cloud of Trinity and the sacred mushroom of immortality.
What's in a Name?
I am Chris King (aka Cristo Rey, or Christus Rex). I was born on the Epiphany 1945, just as the plutonium began to roll out of Hanford towards our destiny of nuclear holocaust at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Dhushara God of Gaia originates as the Lord of Seir in Genesis and becomes the Nabatean iconic fertility deity of Nabatea in the time of Jesus. Dhushara embodies the tabu Dionysian aspects of miraculous dread, true vine, soma and sangre, thief in the night, darkness at noon-tide, and bridegroom of the sacred reunion. The true unveiling comes through throwing the covers off reality in fertile transgression of the old order.
Niño or El Niño, is chosen for the music group, after the Southern climatic and oceanic oscillation, to represent the eye of the hurricane of biospheric immanence.
As a scientist I have ongoing research interests in biocosmology, evolution and consciousness. I have participated in both the source Eastern and Western spiritual traditions and made a vision quest to experience the specturm of entheogens, including vigils to the sources of the world's power plants and fungi. During the second millennial transition I performed a series of rites of passage to culminate the messianic epoch in reflowering the Tree of Life in the sacred reunion of the hieros gamos in Jerusalem.
My mission is to invoke a paradigm shift to a new paradisiacal epoch, in which the generations of life, and we ourselves as a climax species, can flourish in abundance and evolve further in conscious awareness. A paradigm shift is a situation in which our view of the universe can evolve through changes of insight. For example, our understanding of the laws of motion were radically tranformed by Isaac Newton and then again by Albert Einstein, by establishing new concepts which have altered our understanding of nature and our description of reality in the scientific tradition. The original Greek term παράδειγμα (paradeigma) was used in Plato's "Timaeus" as the model, or pattern, that the Demiurge used to create the cosmos.
Yeshua caused just such a paradigm shift in religious tradition, by embarking on a controversial mission, in which he embraced a world view which integrated contemporary apocalypic Hebrew beliefs with the heroic notions of neighbouring fertility cultures, adopting a miraculous persona, becoming the true vine turning water into wine, anointed by a woman and ministered unto by the women out of their substance, to the cumulative extent that he became accused of blasphemy by the Jewish orthodoxy and was after his crucifixion by the Romans, embraced as a demi-god by the wider pagan world, so that Christianity has become a major global religion worshipping him as world saviour, despite his disclaiming the role of lord and master:
"I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated
from the bubbling spring which I have measured out." (Gospel of Thomas).
The notion of messiah, or mashiach, is a living archetype, recurrent throughout recorded history. The true value and test of a mashiach is inoking a paradigm of long-term future goodness. I am a messiah of living diversity, under the banner of reflowering the Tree of Life, to protect the future generations of life on planet Earth. The Tree of Life is both the tree of evolutionary living diversity and has been integral to our collective consciousness, from our Fall from unity with paradise in Eden to the future revelation of the tree and its fruit for the healing of the nations, in our unveiling. Cherishing and replenishing the Earth in resplendence thoughout the generations of life is the key to our meaning, our purpose, our destiny, and our perpetual fulfillment.
Central to the unveiling is sexual reunion, in which the epoch of patriarchal dominion comes to an end and women's evolutionary rights to reproductive choice are respected because of their disproportionately greater investment in parenting, as explained in Christine's and my work "Sexual Paradox".
A hint of the current direction to catalyse a new view of reality as a paradigm shift can be found at Resplendence. Resplendence - to "shine brightly" is the natural paradigm shift from the bondage of religion - "to bind fast", in which preconceived beliefs give way to collective action to bring about the immortal age of paradise, thus fulfilling our planetary destiny as sentient beings.
