Goin’ Dutch : Daulton In The 5th Dimension

Posted in Baseball at 5:28 am by

I’m not sure where former Phillies catcher Darren Daulton is headed on December 21, 2012, but wherever it might be, I certainly hope it is a place without a Hooter’s.

From Knight Ridder’s Paul Hagen (link supplied by Repoz of Baseball Think Factory)

“I see life in a different perspective than I used to, in a way that’s different from most people see it,” Daulton, 44, told the Philadelphia Daily News Thursday after finishing a round of golf in nearby Dunedin. “There’s so much going on that we’re not really aware of. Some people are privy to this. It’s spoken of in the Bible. Some people are awakened to what’s taking place.

“We only know what we can perceive with our five senses. I have been, for whatever reason, awakened to other realms that are achievable by all of us. All I want to do is try to convey to everyone what I have witnessed.

He spoke Thursday just hours after a story about his beliefs was posted on Sports Illustrated’s Web site. But these ideas have been percolating for years, thoughts he put down on paper while serving three months in jail last summer. He recently completed a 32,000-word manuscript he hopes to have published. Tentative title: “If They Only Knew.”

He was considered a leading candidate to become the next Phillies manager after the 2000 season, but Larry Bowa got the job instead.

Around that time, he became more convinced the world was a more complex realm than most realized.

“It was four or five years (after that day in Wrigley Field) that I started seeing this other dimension,” he said. “I saw (former Phillies manager) Lee Elia, my folks, my brother running on the beach. They were all much younger. But it was real.”

If he had to boil it down to one sentence, it would be this: “We need to stop judging each other. Because every one of us is on a different path.”

But there’s more to it than peace and harmony. Daulton is convinced that the day of reckoning is coming soon. Specifically, on Dec. 21, 2012, at 11:11 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time, the chosen will simply vanish from this plane of existence.

“That will be the end of this dispensation,” he said. “I really don’t know how to explain it. I don’t know what words to use so people won’t think I’m goofy. But by Dec. 21, 2012 (the last day recorded on the Mayan calendar), people will have a pretty good idea. It’s all about consciousness and love. We have the ability to create whatever we want. We’re all made of energy.”

    i had a similiar experience or “awakening” but i believe the reason for mine involved serious amounts of psilocybin.

    I was surprised that an ex major leaguer has had these experiences, every time I think I will just return to normal life, a new development eggs me on. To all readers, Dutch is very accurate in his beliefs, and if you all new(not that i know it all)what the deal was, we wouldn’t be living the way we appear. It truly is a light in the circle. mentionable words: 13, energy, masonry, pyramids, hieroglphics, 10th planet, ufo’s, ancient sacred geometry. do a search, maybe its your turn

    I don’t necesarrily agree with what he said. However, I for one, give Darren a lot of credit for coming out about his beliefs. Knowing damn right well that he will be publicly ridiculed, and still had the balls to state his beliefs no matter what people are going to say. Right away, people claim he’s nuts, drugs, whatever. Keep an Open Mind about these comments he has made (he’s not the only one with these thoughts). I myself have seen some strange things that go beyond normal explanation in my 49 yrs. on this earth.

    Im not sure if Dutch is crazy, but I can say this for certain. Life is complex and us humans are not even close to understanding ourselves, surroundings, other beings. We tend to completely rely on our 5 senses, which is normal and is good since our world is based on 3D, for the most part (time/space being a possible 4th D). Our senses aid in our survival, but to negate any possibility of a 5th 6th 7th …. etc Dimension would be illogical. Its possible that Dutch is on to something here. I read a story a while back about Tibetan (spelling?) Monks that claim to epxerience this “enhanced consiousness” or state of being and Dutch seems pretty inline with what they claim. For example I remember one story that a Monk was actually able to span 100 kilometers with only his mind.

    Who are you to know everything? Heck, you don’t have enough sense to tell us about you? I am so tired of bloggers that hide behind initials.

    How do you know everything? I’m over 40 and I haven’t begun to understand life. How do you come by the wisdom of the ages.

    The book sounds interesting, but I have to wonder if this guy has a major psych issue. I mean having a sudden awakening while hitting a baseball down the third base line is odd. It’s also interesting to consider that all of these thoughts began AFTER a majorly stressful event…his first wife divorcing him after signing a big contract extension. He’s also been divorced a second time and he’s spent time in jail. I also heard on the radio that one of the radio guys saw him wandering on a street looking homeless.

    There may be truth in his words, but I’d put my money on delusional schizophrenia or borderline personality disorder.

    Or maybe post-traumatic stress disorder…watch the movie “Reign on Me” and tell me if this story doesn’t sound familiar.
