Dr JJ Hurtak – A Man Forward of His Time

We stay in an age the place every little thing has its place! Science is one factor, fairly separate from faith which is one other. Dr. J. J. Hurtak, nonetheless, has built-in these seemingly disparate fields of research and uncovered the concord between them.

The very best-selling ebook “The Da Vinci Code” prompted many students to look to the similarities between science and faith and the way they could complement one another. Dr. Hurtak has been doing this for years.

Previous to Dan Brown’s best-seller, Dr. Carl Sagan mentioned the conflicts between scientists and theologians in his ebook “Contact” and the film constructed from it. This dialogue has raged for over a century between teachers of various disciplines, with nobody giving an inch.

For over 35 years, Dr. J.J. Hurtak has been stating the commonalities and reinforcing nature between comparative faith and the social sciences. Disciplines like anthropology, archaeology, historical past, linguistics and the onerous sciences of arithmetic, physics, biology, neurology, astronomy and cosmology are complementary, Hurtak claims – and he has spent his skilled life proving it. Usually when specialists in several fields are introduced collectively, they really feel at odds with each other. Dr. Hurtak, nonetheless, by means of his numerous scholarship and research, has labored to deliver divergent disciplines collectively. He builds consensus in an evolutionary transfer towards synthesis, hoping that bridging these disciplines will introduce a extra harmonious life for all humankind by means of the synergy and perception of a number of disciplines.

In different phrases, what Hurtak is asking us to do is to open our hearts and minds to different tutorial disciplines, different cultural concepts and totally different non secular and political viewpoints for the mutual profit of making a greater future for all of us. What follows is my interview and interpretation of Dr. Hurtak’s work and why a few of it’s misunderstood.

Considered one of his optimistic visions for planet Earth is to see the unity of peoples and a motion to ascertain peaceable relationships amongst all of us. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. known as out this similar message in church and from the pinnacle of protest traces throughout the peace motion of the 1960’s, and different progressives did the identical. Some individuals at the moment are carrying that very same banner into the brand new millennia, and Dr. J.J. Hurtak clearly is one in all them.

Hurtak isn’t just a magnificence pageant contestant spouting platitudes about unity and world peace. He’s a world famend scholar asking different specialists and scientists to see the similarities between faith and science and to contemplate how they’ll work collectively for optimistic change.

Sure, he is making an attempt to get science and faith to work collectively! Traditionally, anyone who has supported the extra speculative sciences or tried to mix a number of disciplines and theories met with appreciable resistance and malice from the final tutorial neighborhood.

How onerous was it to get medical doctors to contemplate the germ idea of illness, after tons of of years of settlement that illness arose spontaneously from the ether. Though the germ idea was resisted at first, it’s now a cornerstone of recent science.

Dr. J.J. Hurtak, Ph.D., Ph.D. (College of California and College of Minnesota) is opening minds to new methods of wanting on the world, and this contains faith, science, historical past and the human situation.

Hurtak is a scholar and tutorial with no specific axe to grind, however in case you have been to attempt to distill his work into a brief phrase, it could be that he’s a futurist working to deliver individuals collectively and lift consciousness. And he’s assembly with appreciable success with this all around the world.

In his need to deliver individuals collectively Dr. Hurtak taught programs on African research on the California State College, Northridge (CSUN) and was privileged to be a participant on the historic reception of the Chinese language Ping-Pong crew on the College of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1972 with Governor Edmund Brown. This was the beginning of open door relations between the US and the Individuals’s Republic of China.

In a facet chapter on American-Far Jap relations, Dr. Hurtak labored to deliver Chinese language acupuncture texts to America. He helped to advance Chinese language acupuncture drugs, which is now a severe and acceptable self-discipline, acknowledged by the American medical career and a official observe acknowledged by authorized and medical specialists all through the world.

Additionally within the 1970’s, Hurtak was capable of work with students behind the scenes in serving to to microfilm sacred Tibetan texts, an necessary historic transfer in preserving a number of the world’s most historical texts of astronomy and drugs. This has helped to additional the understanding of an necessary early chapter in world historical past.

For 30 years, Hurtak has visited South Africa and labored with the Zulu Shaman, Credo Mutwa, to advertise and protect African tradition and music, lengthy earlier than the top of apartheid.

Hurtak’s work has continued to span many disciplines in in search of methods to create a optimistic dialogue for our future. Within the 1980’s he was a director of Know-how Advertising Evaluation Company (TMAC) and helped to ascertain a powerful dialogue between engineers, scientists and authorities leaders searching for solutions to the oil embargo and the necessity for actual power options. With Hurtak’s encouragement, TMAC turned well-known by means of its creation of the annual Renewable Vitality Know-how Symposium and Worldwide Exposition (RETSIE) Convention at Anaheim, California, the place hundreds of main engineers and businessmen have been introduced collectively to look forward and to honor Nobel Prize winners like Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg who modified the which means of the power equation. Hurtak took motion to fulfill the power problem and to assist younger and outdated to see the significance of sustainability.

Extra just lately, Dr. Hurtak alongside along with his group The Academy for Future Science (AFFS) has been serving to the Xavante individuals of Brazil with methods of bettering agriculture and academic futures, working to supply for real sustainability with new agricultural facilities and alternatives for getting ready their younger individuals to go on to greater schooling.

Working with many musicians around the globe, Hurtak has launched humanistic and religious musical themes. A few of these musicians have included Gilberto Gil from Brazil and Alice Coltrane, spouse of well-known jazz saxophonist John Coltrane. Hurtak’s work with Alice on the New Jersey Heart of the Performing Arts was written up in The New York Instances (2006) in an article concerning the introduction of “supersoul” music, however Hurtak prefers to see it as a religious renewal of unity by means of music and the celebration of “mantric” language.

Within the subject of literature, Hurtak consulted with the internationally identified author, Sidney Sheldon, on adjustments throughout the human psyche for the novel “The Doomsday Conspiracy”. Sidney Sheldon’s books have offered tens of millions of copies all through the world.

Sheldon got here to Hurtak as a result of Hurtak was the primary to substantiate extraterrestrial experiments with the human race. In 1979, in an El Common information convention (Mexico Metropolis), he identified the necessity to speak overtly about these and different necessary points going through humanity. In 1995, he was a speaker on the historic first disclosure convention in Washington D.C. “When Cosmic Cultures Meet” sponsored by the Human Potential Basis. This particular gathering mentioned the fact of cosmic visitations. Hurtak continues to encourage students, governments and scientists to speak overtly about these controversial topics.

As a widely known lecturer and writer, Hurtak is revered for his data of anthropology, future science and social science. Hurtak is working onerous all around the world in an effort to unite reasonably than divide. As with all who preceded him on this endeavor, he has discovered many detractors. Some individuals misstate Hurtak’s phrases to ahead their very own place. Others have misunderstood Hurtak’s which means as a result of they don’t have the background to have the ability to perceive his writings.

Hurtak has all the time revered and located factors of mutual settlement in his comparative non secular research and different research. It’s the misinterpretations of his non secular scholarship that detractors have criticized him for essentially the most.

For instance, whereas instructing courses on the Useless Sea Scrolls, within the 1960’s, Hurtak identified that it was the Muslim world’s teachers and scientists who helped to cross on the heritage of the Classical and Hellenic world to Europe.

Hurtak has unceasingly labored to construct bridges between peoples. This activity is not any small enterprise. He travels the world as a lecturer, talking publicly collectively along with his spouse who shares his philosophy and environmental considerations.

Inclusion not Exclusion

He’s the writer of over fourteen books. His newest ebook is “The Finish of Struggling” with co-author Russell Targ.

His books are sociological and barely political. Actually he tries to avoid politics to keep away from the divisiveness and polarity that’s hooked up to politics.

Hurtak’s most up-to-date travels present what he has completed currently. A lot of his fame stems from work he did years in the past in comparative faith, and whereas he nonetheless works on this area, he’s now very concerned in additional complete issues. He simply returned to the US from the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Australia, the place he was an honorary ambassador, in addition to a speaker.

Hurtak has achieved recognition by means of this worldwide group in addition to by means of his ongoing scholarly contributions in comparative faith with an emphasis on commonalities between totally different religions. But his detractors assault his repute no matter his good works.

A lot of Hurtak’s work is of a metaphysical nature. He makes use of ideas involving historical historical past and languages. A part of the issue along with his critics is that they typically misread Hurtak’s work by making an attempt to simplify ideas that aren’t easy.

His in depth work in comparative faith can’t be decreased to simplistic phrases and cliches. Hurtak speaks, for instance, of the black stone in Mecca as representing the energies of our altering life and altering three-dimensional universe, an evaluation that’s in accord with Muslim legends that the black dice incorporates one thing sacred that fell to earth on the time of Adam and that has absorbed the sins of humanity. Misrepresenting Hurtak’s phrases out of context, detractors have tried to make use of this assertion from his ebook as a cost in opposition to him: Fairly than relating his assertion to the world’s conventional mythologies and religions and to fashionable science, with its ongoing investigation of the character of darkish power and darkish matter of which greater than 95% of our universe consists, they label Hurtak as important of the Moslem religion.

His place, acknowledged within the voice of a metaphysicist, isn’t a political opinion. Hurtak’s statements, taken in context, level out similarities within the main religions of the world: European Christians make pilgrimages to one of many Black Madonnas, to be cleansed of sins and to make a brand new begin on their religious paths, whereas Moslems make the rigorous pilgrimage to Mecca to the presence of the black stone, housed within the Kaaba, for functions of worship and purification.

Visions and Revelations

The misstatements of Dr. Hurtak’s critics create the divisions he’s making an attempt to heal. When challenged as to specifics, these critics grow to be evasive. Some critics and detractors have tried to characterize the supply of Hurtak’s mystical writings as “channeling”. For the coed of comparative religions there are numerous synonyms for wi-fi communication with one thing God like. “Channeling” can be utilized as a catch-all time period for any and all revealed extrasensory messages coming from some unexplainable supply. But, in actuality, channeling is just one methodology of receiving data; a imaginative and prescient is one other. And there may be one other means of gaining greater data, known as by the ancients a “Revelation”.

A imaginative and prescient could also be something from a bodily and psychological expertise induced by medication – i.e., Carlos Castaneda and the Piute nation (in addition to different Native peoples who use drug assisted experiences) – to that of a better understanding given as a Divine Reward. Visions could also be induced by bodily stress, fasting, bodily exhaustion or fevers, however they may also be induced by non secular disciplines: yoga, meditation, and so forth.

A “imaginative and prescient” is clearly a extra common time period than a Revelation. Revelation, be it by the presence of an angel or greater entity, equivalent to a non secular epiphany, is an inspirational awakening that imparts an understanding or data. A imaginative and prescient generally is a revelation. Channeling, in distinction, is the receiving of knowledge given to an individual via a controlling entity spoken by means of the social gathering that’s channeling.

No matter whether or not it was a imaginative and prescient, an epiphany or a revelation, Hurtak had such a wakeup name and tried to elucidate it in a ebook, over three many years in the past, known as “The Keys of Enoch “. His ebook is a scholarly work that doesn’t lend itself to simple, glib explanations.

It has been steered that Dr. Hurtak could be effectively served if he wrote up one thing alongside the traces of Dr. J.J. Hurtak Defined so it could be clearer what he’s getting at.

After I interviewed Dr. Hurtak in California he had simply returned from lecturing in Australia and was heading out to talk at universities round South Africa to attempt to deliver a optimistic future. My aim was to get a clearer deal with on this man after which attempt to put in plain language what causes the confusion about him, his writings and his positions within the public consciousness.

Individuals with doctorates, from my expertise, generally isolate themselves through the use of a specialised language that attends their subject. Dr. J.J. Hurtak has two doctorates and is an professional in a number of disciplines and has even muddied the waters additional by mastering many languages each fashionable and historical.

Sadly, sophisticated language or the technical use of terminology could also be used in opposition to any writer to additional an agenda or to discredit the scholar.

As acknowledged above, the phrases imaginative and prescient and channeling have typically been misapplied with regard to Hurtak who has overtly and publicly acknowledged that he doesn’t assist channeling.

Subsequently, it is extremely simple, when coping with the work of students equivalent to Hurtak, Carl Gustav Jung, Carl Sagan and others, for conmen, charlatans, pundits and tutorial spin medical doctors to take catchphrases out of the context of a scholarly work and misunderstand the which means of the writer.

Most of the time, disinformation isn’t essentially used for disinformation functions alone, however for slandering a subject and people who assist that subject who’re making an attempt to make a optimistic transfer ahead in society. In actuality, disinformation is fake data or damaging data, typically unfaithful, used to discredit enemies.

In analyzing Hurtak’s work it is very important perceive that as a lawyer could use a specialised vocabulary, the anthropologist, archaeologist, or comparative faith specialist (Dr J.J. Hurtak) will likewise use terminology with a extra exact which means than that which means typically understood by the general public.

Dr. Hurtak wrote his ebook “The Guide of Information: The Keys of Enoch” based mostly upon a revelation he had concerning: arithmetic, historical past, comparative faith, archaeology, anthropology and linguistics for the way forward for humankind.


Particularly, in 1973 Dr. Hurtak had what I’d outline as a “revelation” which implies that a supernatural or reasonably, an infinite supply “reveals” some data to the pure man who could then attempt to clarify that data to others. This notion of getting perception from the supernatural, or God, if you’ll, was accepted throughout earlier eras as a given by many individuals that God or the gods revealed His (or their) will to humankind in some type or one other. For the reason that daybreak of classical fashionable philosophy, philosophers equivalent to Kant and Plato have had discussions on the Noumena world (meta-physical actual world past the 5 senses) vs. the outstanding world (identified by the 5 senses”). Nonetheless, particularly because the Age of Enlightenment, the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, this perception in metaphysics has grow to be much less well-accepted amongst a rising phase of the inhabitants.

Hurtak had a private revelation or epiphany and wrote a ebook to elucidate it. The delicate distinction between channeling and revelation is necessary.

Neither Hurtak nor his group, the Academy for Future Science have ever endorsed channeling. Although Dr. J.J. Hurtak is accustomed to a number of well-known channelers and will even respect their work, he doesn’t endorse the method of channeling. Not surprisingly, there are simply as many people who use Hurtak for their very own credibility by tying their views, writings and opinions to Hurtak’s work or to Hurtak himself, oftentimes with none actual affiliation with Dr. J.J. Hurtak or the Academy for Future Science.

Though Dr. Hurtak defined his expertise in The Guide of Information: Keys of Enoch, this revelation and expertise have been loosely described in varied books by Hurtak’s detractors in pursuit of their very own interpretation and agendas. However these similar individuals fail to level out the wonderful information he had on this ebook that have been unknown on the time of writing.

For one, he calls our solar a ‘variable star’ in his ebook over thirty-six years in the past. This necessary knowledge was simply acknowledged by NASA this previous yr (2010).

Second, he factors out that there might be an uncommon recognition of a change within the rotation of Saturn. This was famous by NASA with its comparability of the Voyager and Cassini probes, carried out in 2004. He additionally was the primary to level out that star shafts of the Nice Pyramid level to particular stars, “Mintaka, Aniltak, Anilam” in Orion, a degree that Robert Bauval’s co-author Adrian Gilbert from the ebook The Orion Thriller takes observe of in his subsequent books. These are just some of the myriad particulars that have been written by Dr. Hurtak within the early 1970’s that at the moment are accepted and understood.

Consequently, Hurtak could be seen as a kind of scientific prophet who’s lastly being understood by a humanity now not dissuaded by scientific pondering having to be at odds with faith. Actually, he factors out that the Title of God because the Tetragrammaton (Hebrew title of God) has a corresponding relation to the codons of the human DNA.

Actually, there are those that utterly don’t perceive what Dr. Hurtak is making an attempt to say particularly within the re-evaluation of necessary symbols. And The Keys use myriad symbols and footage for instance consciousness improvement.

I prefer to assume that’s the place the battle and confusion is available in. For instance, The Keys of Enoch communicate of such phrases as “Christ race” which is describing a individuals who have compassion and reveal a tradition of peace simply as Christ tried to point out. This represents an avant-garde individuals who use the Mild of Christ consciousness as a spiritualized individuals of Mild. Those that do not perceive this have mentioned Hurtak is talking of a “Grasp race.” The time period “Race” has such a loaded which means at this time that had Hurtak written the ebook at this time he could have used “Christ consciousness” since he was speaking concerning the outlook or mindset of a gaggle of individuals, not their genetic, non secular, or nationwide heritage.

Generally in dialogue of the supernatural essential concepts get blurred. The favored press tries to make the controversy as accessible as potential to the widest viewers. Hurtak and different students have completely totally different audiences and should not essentially in search of populist acceptance. He isn’t making an attempt to reply the questions for everybody however is posing the query for everybody. Lecturers course of their experiences by means of their coaching and are available out the opposite finish with their model of what occurred, defined in their very own phrases.

I’ve concluded that The Keys of Enoch isn’t a channeled work. It’s a scholarly reporting of an expertise the writer had with the next being whereby he skilled a substantial amount of data along with his aware thoughts (greater consciousness), after which reported it as filtered by means of his scholarly background.

It appears affordable to any educated individual that the explanation Dr. Hurtak was chosen for this expertise was that he, by means of onerous work, scholarship, and willingness and openness to religious improvement, was certified to disclose this expertise to the world.

Being a considerably skeptical reporter, I take all the philosophical and metaphysical colleges of thought with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, I do take exception when journalists use sloppy writing model, poor or no reality checking and broad stroke characterization of different individuals’s work; particularly once they inject colloquialisms and imprecise language to elucidate religious issues.

Stargate Nonsense?

In researching this text I learn many articles that had professionals and cons about Dr. Hurtak. One of the “uninformed”, in my view, is “The Stargate Conspiracy” (by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince) which lumped collectively a bunch of people that individually determined to analyze a number of the archeology in Egypt as being concerned in some ‘secret conspiracy.’ They took out of context fragments of Hurtak’s work together with misstating his views to return to a conclusion that was extra in accord with their very own agenda as expressed of their a number of writings.

For my part, the irony about discussing “The Stargate Conspiracy,” is that it elevates the authors’ mis-interpretation as if it have been a piece of fact-checked scholarship. It’s not!

All through the ebook, there may be lots of this type of free associative writing on this style. And correcting the conclusions is irritating as a result of they do not concern themselves with accuracy. The tabloids come to thoughts.

Why ought to anybody care? The one motive students attempt to set the file straight is that the file is their repute.

A scholar and lecturer’s repute should be stored clear and extremely polished to take care of credibility as a way to proceed working within the subject.

Hurtak takes the difficulty to protect his repute whatever the seemingly futile nature of the battles he has to battle to deliver unity between the scientific thoughts and non secular viewpoint.

Most cautious readers of Hurtak admire his integrity. His detractors appear to ignore integrity in favor of hoped for mass audiences.

The “9” Confusion

An ideal instance of that is using the phrases “The 9”, “Lab 9”, “Council of 9”, from which the Stargate authors and others have decided, on account of a reference in The Keys of Enoch, that Hurtak is related to “THE NINE”.

Surprisingly, Stargate desires you to assume that “THE NINE” are some human governmental conspiracy group. Hurtak makes use of solely the time period “Council of 9,” in a really regular non secular, scholarly context as regarding a Jungian archetype similar to the 9 Egyptian gods as mythological instructing figures and the 9 historical Greek gods once more as Jungian archetypes.

Particularly, it’s a metaphor or at the least an outline of angelic realities that in all probability would don’t have anything to do with governments on earth!

Hurtak’s reference should be taken in context of scholarly writing. Hurtak is a tutorial in comparative faith, mythology, and anthropology, not a conspiracy buff. Hurtak outlined the Council of 9 “as a tribunal of lecturers governing our speedy tremendous galactic and galactic area topic to vary in evolving ‘new applications’ of the daddy’s kingdom. ” Though I wrestle to grasp his definition I’m clear that he ain’t speaking a couple of quasi-governmental committee of people.

In easy language, Hurtak is writing about an expertise with an angelic or infinite sort of being expressing data from a creator supply. We’re speaking concerning the infinite with our finite thoughts and restricted language.

Additional, Hurtak, by means of onerous work earned two Ph.D.s, a undeniable fact that any journalist might affirm, if they might hassle. Hurtak’s background isn’t solely comparative faith however anthropology and historical past. He’s placing this group of 9 lecturers within the context that now we have traditionally put messengers of the gods, or archetypes in.

Dr. Hurtak’s metaphor isn’t “the 9.” Dr. Hurtak doesn’t use that time period in his ebook. He makes use of the time period “Council of 9.” It is not sensible to conclude that he’s speaking about 9 extraterrestrials or corporeal beings pulling the strings on humankind or that he, Dr. J.J. Hurtak, would qualify or select to be one in all this council since he considers himself a person, not an incorporeal being.

If one goes on the web and kinds in “The 9” or “Lab 9” they might get many hits for a online game. In addition they would possibly get a reference to the 9 unique gods of Greek Mythology or an entire set of conspiracy websites that confuse Dr. J.J. Hurtak’s work with science fiction writers equivalent to Gene Rodenberry and well-liked psychics equivalent to Uri Geller and different writers equivalent to Phyllis V. Schlemmer, who did write about “The 9 “.

Since Phyllis V. Schlemmer, Uri Geller, and a person named Puharich did work in parapsychology within the 1960’s and 1970’s, some authors leap to the conclusion that as a result of Hurtak related to and ran in the identical circles of teachers learning parapsychology; that all of them had the identical agenda, similar beliefs, and are working with phrases of artwork in the identical method. That is clearly not true. He’s making an attempt to teach and encourage our world to assume by way of not solely world ethics and human understanding, however an outlook that may embrace different galaxies and universes of their consciousness. Towards this finish, he’s involved and energetic with each earth science and area legislation. He has revealed papers on a brand new set of area legal guidelines for peace on the “excessive frontier” and discussions concerning the multinational colonization of area.

Optimistically, I consider Hurtak is a part of a brand new motion towards environmentally and socially energetic public consciousness.

If one reads the information, they may infer that over the previous thirty years the Western world has misplaced its bearings and has begun to wager its future and misplaced its ethical values. Ethics have given technique to cynical opportunism in enterprise, in finance, in politics and in life normally.

Guilt by Affiliation

Lastly, I can’t shut this text with out additionally laughing on the assertion that Hurtak labored for the C.I.A. based mostly upon his affiliation with Puharich.

It’s alleged that Puharich labored for the C.I.A. I can’t say as he has been lifeless for over 15 years. In a latest interview and in dialogue with individuals who have identified Hurtak for a number of many years; it turns into clear that Hurtak was unaware of any affiliation that Puharich could have had with the C.I.A. once they labored collectively.

Additional, Hurtak’s work in parapsychology included reviewing work by students all around the world, not simply the U.S. He reviewed the works by different students in Russia, Sweden, Brazil, South Africa, Britain and all obtainable data within the U.S.

If we have been to consider fashionable motion pictures, or simply common frequent sense, we would conclude that our authorities and each different fashionable authorities on this planet monitor the work of analysis scientists in varied fields with out ever straight contacting these scientists. Significantly in the event that they knew {that a} scientist would not really feel comfy working for a authorities intelligence company.

Reality Checking

That’s the reason good journalists attempt to speak with their topics, verify information, and try to derive affordable conclusions based mostly upon information.

Readers must do the identical and never consider every little thing written on the web as a result of it could be disinformation to maintain them from delving deeper into the concepts of those that herald optimistic steps for making the world a greater place.

Society prefers to maintain the established order, which implies protecting you blocked from transferring ahead in your pondering. If we’re blocked by not discerning “disinformation” after we see it, you stay locked within the outdated field of perpetual negativity. That’s one thing I discovered from Dr. Hurtak, who prefers to maneuver individuals out of the outdated field into an knowledgeable and inventive understanding.

In conclusion, Dr. J.J. Hurtak is a free-thinker, not anti- any non secular group! He by no means labored for the intelligence neighborhood. And, he’s working in a capability to unite divergent philosophies not dominate them or lead them.

Hurtak is a scholar, a instructor, a lecturer and a person who must be honored for his contributions all through the world. Though he challenges the traditional paradigms, he goes to pains to supply rationalization of his writings or concepts when requested.

He is a visionary and a superb man working for unity from east to west, north to south and must be given the respect he has earned. Items like this one, I hope, merely try to make clear any unintentional misunderstandings and direct the reader to make up their very own thoughts after going to the supply.
