This week welcome to the show Tom Campbell. He has been focused on scientifically exploring the properties, boundaries, and abilities of consciousness for the past forty years. His books, videos and workshops have reached millions of people around the world and have changed lives and opened eyes to a new way of thinking about reality: a new way of understanding physics, and a new way of understanding who, what and why we are.
The MBT trilogy combines his work as a large complex systems analyst and as an explorer of the large complex system we call reality to conclude that LOVE is the fabric of our reality.
Tom’s statement “If it is not your experience, it is not your truth” highlights the message that he wishes to impart, encouraging everyone to engage with their own experiences, to learn and to evolve.
Questions we ask in this episode:
I will have to say, with this episode, I wasn’t sure where it was going to go. Tom is a physicist. He’s worked for NASA, he’s worked for the Department of Defense, and he’s also studied consciousness for 40 years as a side project as well. The scope of the conversation could have gone anywhere, really. I thought Tom was brilliant. It reminded me very much of the Bruce Lipton interview, which, for me, was one of the personal highlights of podcasting over the four years. If you had asked me four years ago if we was going to get to interview a nuclear physicist on our podcast, I would have said you were crazy. It has happened and it’s happened today. When you get to sit down with someone like Tom, for me, there was just so much experience, so much wisdom there and knowledge, but not only that, a very big, open-hearted guy. Just fantastic and he just wants to share what he’s learned with the world. It’s as simple as that.
[00:02:00] We get into all sorts of topics today. I will say, this episode was one of two halves, if you like. The first half is quite technical, but stay with it because it has a lot of meaning and the second half, we then start to get into talking about fear, why do we work from a fear-based response quite often, and then from that, how do we resolve that problem. Then going into what is actually our purpose as humans being here and what does it all mean, anyway? It gets quite deep. It’s conversations we hadn’t had on the podcast before and I must admit, I loved every minute of it. It’s something I’m going to listen to a few times to really absorb what Tom was sharing about it and I’m confident you’re going to get lots out of it.
[00:03:30] Now, I’ve been speaking to the event organizers and they’ve kindly given us a substantial discount code for this event as well for all of the 180 podcast listeners. There will be links, so the best way to go about it, if you enjoy the podcast and you want to come to see Tom live as well, all you will have to do is come back to our website, 180nutrition.com.au, go to the search field on the homepage, and type Tom Campbell in. That’s going to take you to this episode, this podcast, and there will be a link to the event and there will be a discount code there, as well, called GL250. It’s March the 11th and 12th, 2017. Nothing would please me more is to come and meet fellow podcast listeners of the show, so make sure you check that out.
Let’s get on to Tom Campbell. Please let me know what you think. Drop us a line somehow. You can reach me through the website, Snapchat, Instagram, and see where this goes. I don’t know whether it’s just me, but I absolutely loved it. Enjoy.
[00:04:30] I’ll just speak for Stu quickly. I do feel for him because I’ve been looking at your work. I’ve been following Bruce Lipton for a while and that, and I’ve kind of just dropped it in on Stu this last week and said mate, we’ve got Tom Campbell coming on the show. He’s worked for NASA, he’s a physicist. We often joke as well because I’m very right brain and Stu’s very left brain, hence make the whole brain for our 180 …
[00:05:00] Stuart, you just fell into the middle of something that is hard to grasp in the short term, so hopefully … Just ask the questions you have and we’ll try to fill it in. I can tell you that it actually does make sense even if it doesn’t sound like it. If you go back and actually look at the derivations, the logical derivations … Just skim over it like we’re going to do today, it’s going to have a lot of logical holes in it because you just can’t fill that in in an hour.
Absolutely. Absolutely. I look forward to getting stuck in because we’ve got some great questions that I’m really intrigued as to how you answer them. Looking forward to it.
[00:05:30] Ask anything you want. You don’t have to stick to the script. Just whatever it is you want to ask, whenever you want to ask it, just do it, and we’ll just go from there so there’s nothing really off the table. Anything you want to say or … Hard questions are welcome as well as easy questions.
Have at it. Whatever works for you.
[00:06:00] Brilliant. I love it. Look, I’ve actually started recording. I reckon let’s just keep going because even that little bit of content’s going to be so valuable for people. Tom, welcome to the show and there’s one question we always ask at the beginning of every show, and I’m itching to see what your answer to this today. That is, if, let’s say you were on an airplane and you sat next to a complete stranger and they asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?
[00:06:30] I would probably just say that one of two things. Depending on how interested they really seem to be or whether or not they were just making small talk and being polite, I might say either I’m retired, which then, of course, kind of ends that subject, if they’re just being polite. Or, I would say I’m a physicist. I would wait to see how they responded to that. If they go oh, okay, and then turned around and looked the other direction, which a lot of people do when you tell them you’re a physicist. Then they might say well, what are you doing now and I would tell them well, I’ve written some books and I’m very busy keeping up with all the things that that has created.
