Hi Keemba, welcome to the forums, and thanks for bumping up this fun old topic! Great show on noticing it among the increasingly vast mass.
So you see compadres - the DoK Theory DOES work! This is the proof - we have caused "ripples in the ether" with our discussion, which attract by their sheer existence.
Well, there were a few very intersting messages posted here just before we went offline in mid-April, that I had fully intended to reply to earlier - but who knows when we'll get to them now, with so many interesting new ideas questions suddenly posed here.
However, as I feel we must by now accept - according to the DoK Theory (which I will lovingly call "DoK-T
") all those questions have now caused their own ripples in the spectrum, and will evidently be answered in due time when the necessity *really* arises.
We're sure to get to them all eventually.
Keemba, that was a excellent educational story about the children and the "girls pants"! As a father of three teenage children I surely noticed this trend a few years ago, and always wondered where it came from. It's fun to suddenly learn that it actually all started in a small town in Utah.
I believe that something akin to the "Hundredth Monkey Effect"
is indeed at work here. But in this case it seems to work not necessarily because the first "100 monkeys" were particularly proficient DoK Centers in themselves - but because the rest of the world appears to have "been ready" for such a style to suddenly catch all over the place.
I think this operates pretty much the same way as when unrelated scientists suddenly invent the same thing at the same time in different parts of the world. It is said to be a natural result of the known science at that time, that different people would think of the same thing. It's a bit different for social trends like fashion, because these do not have a sound "scientific basis" that everyone in the world agrees on. But the underlying mechanism would still largely be the same, because in the case of social trends certain things have already been widely agreed upon, before the new trend or fashion catches on - which is why once it does catch on it spreads everywhere like brushfire (though admittedly some of it because of advertising.)
For example, there have been "unisex" clothes for a long time - which are in many way the same thing as "boys wearing girls' pants". I predicted years ago that this would lead to either gender eventually wearing each other's actual clothes - and sure enough, this has indeed started happening all over the place. It's not just things like those unbelievably low pants the the boys also started wearing - but young women are now wearing underwear that was formerly made only for men. It hadn't worked the other way on the underwear scene, I would guess only because the actual physical parts are very different and demand different support.

Why do some seem to have the ability to tap into it, like Edgar Cayce as he was somewhat illiterate when taking into account the amazing "information" he was able to give in readings? Are DoK Centers equipped, so to speak, with the best vibrational frequency to emit "knowledge" or "information" to the masses? DoK Centers know they are one? How do we determine this, and then how do we find them?
Great questions all of them, and we can probably spend the rest of our lives trying to figure them out. Briefly
though (yeah, right), I don't think that this "old knowledge" you refer to ever became lost. People like Cayce and others have called it things like "alien channeling" - but myself and others have called it Art and Literature.
Yes, I believe that all of our Great Artists could tap into the exact same "source of knowledge" from which Cayce got his Atlantis stories. And many of them even also wrote about Atlantis itself! But since those other stories were written as "myth" or "fictional literature" - we in the New Age tend to dismiss them more readily than "alien channeling". I personally have always found this strange.
Yes, I do believe that people who are DoK Centers are naturally equipped with that special "vibrational frequency", which helps them spread their particular Knowledge better than others. As with any human ability, like running or shooting straight, this one would also be differently developed in different individuals. I feel that this special "DoK Ability" is a product of that individual's ability to EXPRESS himself - by any means possible. Express himself in such a special way, as to make his idea spread around the world all by itself.
Like you, I also discard the main notion of the Age of Reason - Descartes' famous dictum of "I think therefore I am"
. I feel that we humans are a sum total of three equal parts - body, mind, and spirit - and it would be a mistake to concentrate on just one of them, the mind, like we've done for the past couple of hundred years with the "Humanist" philosophies. To merely THINK is not enough, we also have to Breathe and Feel, in order to really Be.
Therefore, at its "perfect ultimate stage", the DoK Expression that I mean above, in order to be really meaningful on many levels and acquire a full life of its own, would have to be beyond the merely verbal like with prose writing, or just "emotional" like with "classical music", or strictly physical like in Martial Arts. It would somehow need to be a full combination of all three.
I think that each person who is a "natural DoK Center" usually discovers their special ability at a very early age, when they see how people around have a tendency to imitate them. What each does with it is a different story. Many go on to become famous people, their works known and cherished around the world. But I would think that many also remain in comfortable obscurity, aware of the little ripples of their influence only on their immediate surrounding, and usually not knowing how far their ideas really went.
As to how do we find them - well, I personally have been trying to do it through forums like these. Who knows, it just might work.
Best wishes, and I hope we continue in the very same vein.
