Suzanne Taylor, Producer/Director of What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery (CropCircleMovie.com), has been involved with films since she graduated from NYU. She crossed over to the other side of the camera as Executive Producer of the 2002 feature documentary, CROP CIRCLES: Quest for Truth. Suzanne is a crop circle authority on the Ancient Aliens television series on the History Channel. She was the producer of Brother, Can You Spare a Paradigm?, the controversial TED x West Hollywood program that was designed to get information about nonlocal reality into the public eye.
Suzanne Taylor brought up some very interesting parallels regarding historical paradigm shifts and World Views that lend us all courage to change the world. Is there a current global revolution? Is there an opportunity to change the current paradigm of the ‘have’s and have nots’, or how about the slave –victim mentality and better yet, the ‘us against them’ belief system? And if we are to change the world, where do we begin and who would we elect to be in charge of the revolution? Suzanne stated “ There is no ‘they’, it’s just us, and this is the case, then why does it feel as though we as a planet are fighting an ongoing battle with (TPTB) The Powers That Be, who we constantly refer to as “they”? Suzanne explores the historical benchmarks regarding evolutionary ideas that changed our world forever.
What are some of the past revolutions that changed the world view?
The Copernican Revolution–
In 1543 Nicolas Copernicus published his treatise De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium (The Revolution of Celestial Spheres) where a new view of the world is presented: the heliocentric model.
The Copernican Revolution was the paradigm shift from the Ptolemaic model of the heavens, which described the cosmos as having Earth stationary at the center of the universe, to the heliocentric model with the Sun at the center of the Solar System.
“In short, it is the realization that we, our planet, and indeed our solar system (and even our galaxy) are quite common in the heavens and reproduced by myriads of planetary systems provided a sobering view of the universe. All the reassurances of the cosmology of the Middle Ages were gone, and a new view of the world, less secure and comfortable, came into being. Despite these “problems” and the many critics the model attracted, the system was soon accepted by the best minds of the time such as Galileo”
The Copernican Revolution is a 1957 book by Thomas Kuhn. An analysis of the Copernican Revolution, it documents the pre-Ptolemaic understanding through the Ptolemaic system and its variants until the eventual acceptance of the Keplerian system.
Kuhn argues that the Ptolemaic system provided broader appeal than a simple astronomical system but also became intertwined in broader philosophical and theological beliefs. Kuhn argues that this broader appeal made it more difficult for other systems to be proposed.
“Once a paradigm shift has taken place, the textbooks are rewritten. Often the history of science too is rewritten, being presented as an inevitable process leading up to the current, established framework of thought. There is a prevalent belief that all hitherto-unexplained phenomena will in due course be accounted for in terms of this established framework. Kuhn states that scientists spend most (if not all) of their careers in a process of puzzle-solving. Their puzzle-solving is pursued with great tenacity, because the previous successes of the established paradigm tend to generate great confidence that the approach being taken guarantees that a solution to the puzzle exists, even though it may be very hard to find. Kuhn calls this process normal science.”
Kuhn’s opinion on scientific progress
“The first edition of SSR ended with a chapter titled “Progress through Revolutions”, in which Kuhn spelled out his views on the nature of scientific progress. Since he considered problem solving to be a central element of science, Kuhn saw that for a new candidate for paradigm to be accepted by a scientific community, “First, the new candidate must seem to resolve some outstanding and generally recognized problem that can be met in no other way. Second, the new paradigm must promise to preserve a relatively large part of the concrete problem solving activity that has accrued to science through its predecessors.” And overall Kuhn maintained that the new paradigm must also solve more problems than its predecessor, which therefore entailed that the number of newly solved problems must be greater than those solved in the old paradigm”
The Quantum World and “Non local reality”
“What if Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen were right that quantum mechanics is incomplete, and there do exist ‘‘elements‐of‐reality’’ corresponding to all observables whether or not they are compatible? The implications are surprising. Not only must the values of these elements‐of‐reality depend upon what measurements are actually performed on the system, but also upon measurements performed at spacelike separation from it! The former dependence has been dubbed ‘‘contextualism,’’ and the latter ‘‘nonlocality.’’ It is important for students to understand the necessity of these two features, if only to reinforce the point that a straightforward classical recasting of quantum theory in terms of pre‐existing measurement independent elements‐of‐reality is not feasible. Unfortunately the argument for contextualism, in particular, is daunting due to its reliance on an elaborate geometrical argument.”
John Mack explored alien encounter experiences deeply, revealing a world of meaning and power that can revolutionize our understanding of who we are and our place in the cosmos. Dr. Mack suggests that such experiences reveal to us a universe which is filled with intelligence and life, though this may not always take the densely embodied form with which we are most familiar. This book brings us to the edge of material reality and beyond, shattering the boundary that has separated matter and spirit and scientific or spiritual ways of knowing. Dr. Mack asks us to move beyond the largely useless debate about whether UFOs or abductions are real in a purely material sense. He shows us the limited way that we have used ourselves in learning about the cosmos, and challenges the limitations of traditional science as a way to learn about the multi-dimensional world in which we reside. Insights about the relationship between spiritual and physical energy; trauma’s role in transformation; information about the ecological crisis facing the planet and the urgency that we do something about it; the possibility that human beings are participating in the creation of some sort of interdimensional hybrid race; the expansion of human consciousness and our spiritual reawakening; and the apparent evolution of extraordinary relationships that some human beings may be developing beyond the earth plane – these are the matters this book includes. Dr. Mack demonstrates that the investigations of a skilled clinician, exploring human consciousness through in-depth conversations, can reveal to us a multidimensional, apparently intelligent, cosmos whose nature is fundamentally consistent with the discoveries of leading scientists who have been gaining knowledge primarily through exploring the physical world.

Suzanne Taylor is a producer, writer, and networker. She produces projects and events so that self-aware, thinking individuals have opportunities to engage and to further the consciousness shift sweeping through humanity. She’s made two documentaries, “CROP CIRCLES: Quest for Truth,” and “What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery,” which got a very good review in The New York Times!: http://CropCircleMovie.com.
Suzanne Taylor says:
“The crop circle phenomenon is a doorway to a bigger reality than the scientific materialist one in which we are so violent with one another and abusive to the Earth. Having made films about the circles I’ve had a platform to rabble-rouse for a new worldview. I got a license from TED to produce TEDxWestHollywood, which was another platform to work from. It actually got me on the world stage when I got caught in a controversy about TED’s policies which led to their cancellation of my license. Repercussions are still in play, where what TED repressed parallels the world’s repression of what could impact our outdated worldview,
These times are dangerously out of balance. Exploitation has supplanted interest in the common good. What can be done to bring about a more life-sustaining perception, grounded in an awareness that we are one?
The good news is that seeking is giving way to expressing. After lifetimes of spiritual practice, self-aware people are sitting around the campfire, glowing together. This is an everyday God sort of thing, hearkening to earlier connections to the land and the tribe that have been acculturated out of us. We are growing a new field of awareness.
Doorway Cafe, a new website for me that’s in development, will be a focal point to pulse the vibe of an awakened humanity and to advocate for a new worldview. Get on my mailing list to stay informed.”
