Intentional Healing as Music: Auto-Tuning a Symphonic Field

What models do we think with when we approach the subject of intention? What’s the grammar and the syntax of this kind of work? Does it even matter?

In this post, you’re going to presented with some food for thought – in the form of an intentional, musical theory of reality. I’m not necessarily positing that these ideas are true, merely that they may be helpful to think with.

Let’s try the (New) age-old energywork exercise: with your intention, form an “energy ball” between your hands – or even simply between two fingers. Expand it. Compress it. Move it. Play with it. What does it feel like to you? And even more importantly, what in the world are you doing?

Our individual embodiment will dictate how our intentionality feels to us, but to what extent could what is happening between the hands or fingers be thought of simply as the establishment of a field of resonance? A sort of musical bubble, if you will. Now, this is a visualizable short-hand for what’s being presented in this episode, but let’s go ahead and state it’s obviously more complex than that. If we might think of it as a bubble then we must also admit that it’s a bubble with essentially no borders. (All fields technically extend into infinity, as discussed in Episode 5) Not only that, but your hands being present have nothing to with the bubble, they are just helpful points of reference for you.

The idea that we are losing something by giving away our qi is a fallacy – and this is the reason why the paradigm in which you perform your intentional healing can directly influence the experience for everyone involved. Dr. Beverly Rubik’s work has demonstrated that the sense of wellbeing of the practitioner has significant effects on cell cultures having Reiki performed on them. If an otherwise largely unconscious and unarticulated state like “wellbeing” has this kind of effect, then what kind of effect might the conscious understanding of what one is even doing have on the desired outcome?

I’m going to contend here that, if you feel tired after performing intention healing, then  you may simply be consciously or unconsciously holding the notion that the work itself can be “draining” or “tiring”.

There is nothing to drain. The energy in which we work is literally infinite. There is no scarcity when it comes to the infinite power of Spirit. As discussed in Episode 3, you are not a battery – you are a hollow tube. Given the model we’re thinking with in this episode, your job is simply to strike a chord.

In intentional healing, we do not send, transmit, or do anything that implies the transfer of substance from one location to another. It is not me giving you my qi or the projection of some force. Rather, all intentional healing can be thought of as the intentional induction of sympathetic resonance. What is sympathetic resonance? When you have two tuning forks of the same frequency and you only strike one – the tuning fork next to it also rings. Same with crystal wine glasses, etc. One difference, though, between thinking of what we are doing as inducing sympathetic resonance and the metaphor of the tuning forks, is that the sound of the tuning forks have to travel through the air. The strength of the sound drops off as you move away from its source according to the inverse square law (even though the effects of all fields technically extend into infinity in a non-linear way). The difference between this an intentional healing is that… well, the “propagation” of “waves” in the Ether happens instantaneously and they don’t dissipate in strength with distance. Ahhhh, that’s encouraging – isn’t it?

It is an instantaneous, non-local effect – meaning standard Newtonian particle-oriented notions of causality are out and non-linear causality in a fractal-holographic (maybe even musical) universe is in.

So, where’s the music coming from? It’s possible that intentional healing might happen through harmony with the musical scale to which the physical universe is literally tuned. We know that Genesis 1 states, “in the beginning was Word.” Norse, Vedic, and other cosmologies from around the world also put sound at the foundational level of the Creation. I encourage you to think with the famous “music of the spheres” put forth by the Greek philosopher Pythagoras. What we are talking about is what two scientists Geesink & Meijer call generalized music, or GM theory. If Geesink & Meijer’s research is even half as profound as it appears to be, it could easily be one of the most powerful scientific discoveries in human history. No big deal.

This is why when performing intentional healing with my clients, I use tuning forks and sound played through a coil to create a magnetic field that is tuned to Pythagorean intervals.

As also discussed in episode 3, telepathic phenomena such as the non-verbal sharing of thoughts or feelings may also occur through this kind of instantaneous and non-local resonance, rather than by the transmission of some substance or force. For that matter, synchronicity itself may in some sense be this kind of universal-musical phenomenon.

When we intentionally interact with the informational content of a target, we are effectively striking a musical chord with which the target “rings”. We are simply allowing the strings of the universe to play harmoniously (and no, that’s not necessarily me advocating for what’s known as string theory – although, who knows?) This ringing (i..e., coherence) can be thought of as a kind of substance, though not the kind of substance that can only be moved from one point in space to another like moving a rock. Instead, the substance is self-generated through the field of awareness. It can be spontaneously generated anywhere, at any time, from any location. The substance, truly, is the sound of a chord.

One last thing, is that I’d like to note the homophonic nature of the word “scale”. It is both a verb and a noun, meaning to change the size of something in a way proportional to itself or another reference – as in, “scaling” or “to scale”. The verb “to scale” could also mean, for that matter, to climb a building. Interesting! The noun “scale” as we’ve used it here, also means a set of harmonic frequencies that make up varying degrees of consonance or dissonance relative to one another. Now, what occurred to me a really whacky implication here, is the term “scalar wave”. “Scalar wave technology” is a term used to denote the kinds of hyperdimensional energies utilized in his research, where he – like many other free energy researchers – was experimenting with the ability to tap energy directly from the Ether. The generalized music of the living universe can be thought of, jokingly, as a scalar scaling scale. This is practically no different from saying it is fractal-holographic, but in a musical sense.

What I hope you’ve gained from this episode is another way of thinking with the spiritual truth that we are simply assisting in the path that reality wants to take. We are becoming a vehicle for the self-expression of the innately divine nature of reality.

Follow the music, and – as they say – let go, and let God.

Zen and the Art of Biophysics

If you’ve ever wondered what the fine-structure fabric of space-time looks like, take a walk on the beach. (Next time you can.)

At some critical point in the evolution of scientific understanding – metaphor ceases to be metaphor.

Dr. Mae Wan Ho refers to the work of her fellow scientist and teacher Emilio Del Giudice as “lighting the fire of a new science.” This new science entails a deep understanding of the electromagnetic nature of the organism and it’s relationship to light, water, and the quantum vacuum. However, the emergence of a new science that unifies disparate realms of knowledge is, of course, nothing new.

Syncretism is a deep undercurrent in many systems of thought, and is in fact the explicitly stated goal of contemporary physics itself. Modern physicists ostensibly pine for a “unified field theory” which can unite all the forces of the standard model. Luckily for those willing to step outside mainstream thought, these “unified theories” are out there waiting to be accepted and more deeply understood. There are complex reasons why these ideas, beyond being merely “fringe”, are relegated to arcane schools of thought but these are a matter of history, habit, and even greed. Suffice to say that 300 years of mechanistic cellular biology can’t be jailbroken overnight.

What we are seeing now in the field of biophysics is a realm which the ancient Daoists could have only dreamt. In a way, it is the inverse of Daoist nominalism – the belief that a name is merely a human attribution and can never adequately reflect the thing-in-itself. The domains of physics and metaphysics are, at last, bleeding together in ways that bring attention to the nature of the metaphor itself. In this view, the nature of the object being studied can actually yield information about the cosmic blueprint from which the object is constructed by its very behavior. The fractal-holographic nature of reality is being played out in front of our very eyes, in every moment. We simply have to realize what it is we are seeing.

Waves crashing on the shore; peaks and troughs bouncing up and down on an otherwise smooth surface; waves on the surface interacting with other waves – consuming them, dispersing them, redirecting them; areas of smoothness and slower motion amidst the seeming chaos of wave interference; the way the waves on the surface bend the light on the floor of the ocean; the bubbles running a “game of life” before being reorganized by the next impending wave; waves within waves within waves and on and on and on… these are not merely metaphors for the wave-like nature of reality and the dynamics of quantum fluctuations. The past few decades of research into biophysics implies that water is the closest thing to an exact, macro-scale representation of quantum phenomena there is.

Ocean Waves

It is the moving image of coherence.

Next time you are on the beach, stretch your perception to encompass this view.

I originally wanted to write this article on the profound peace I have received from illuminating the physical nature of my relationship with the Dao, the Ether, the Zero-point field, etc. specifically through the study of quantum biology.

In my search for inspiration I was given a break. After exploring and internalizing the work of Giudice, Bischof, Ho, and others I had a dream. In this dream I was going through some sort of shopping mall, meeting and greeting people. But in this dream I experienced a feeling. This feeling was more than a feeling of “lucidity” – this was a feeling of being in flow. As I proceeded in the narrative of this dream, I felt like the very molecules of my being were being guided by their future states into their present state, a phenomenon which sounds like science-fiction but is actually borne out by research into the quantumelectrodynamics of cellular communication. In this dream, I felt as though my entire embodiment could perceive the fluctuations of the Ether. I could feel it – and I let it move me.

Perhaps this feeling is the same kind of feeling we experience in the flow of our intentional healing, our meditation, or our daily lives. Perhaps it is our intentionality bouncing off of the interference patterns of the Ether which resonate back at us through time, infusing our being with a sense of deep harmony and a feeling of unity with something more. What, then, shall we intend?

The future science of life will not distinguish between it’s humanistic implications and the physical dynamics that define it’s behavior. Healing, spirituality, and ethics – naturally falling out of a holistic view of reality.

All is truly One – A deeply synchronized, superfluid matrix of Spirit.

Intention Ontology: Applied and Theoretical

Intentional healing is a practice available to everyone.

Many systems of intentional healing, or energwork – as it’s often called, treat the hands as being points of “emission”, “projection”, or “emanation” of some kind of energy. Rather, in intentional healing the hands or any point in space can serve somply as a placeholder for the intentional focus of awareness. The only thing emanating is the expression of a singular, universal reality according to our perception of space-time – flow.

Another way of saying this is: God emanates. Humans take part. This is why in intentional healing we say, “it’s not you”.

As discussed in prior episodes, whenever you move you are entraining the superfluid Ether. Thought is a sort of movement, even insofar as our understanding of “thought” in the cognitive sense requires a brain with neurons that create differentials in charge and dictate the flow of electrons (not to say that thought, broadly speaking, exists only inside one’s brain). Therefore, when you think you also entrain the superfluid Ether. They are called brainwaves, after all.

Why would there be so many swimming-like movements in qigong? Why does ecstatic dance often appear this way as well? The experience of attunement with these “subtle energies” is often described of as a feeling of being in water.

It’s because you are swimming.

Be this a metaphor or a statement of fact, how are we actually swimming if our experience only matches that of what we call “swimming” when we are either suspended in a body of water or, in some important cases, experiencing the flow of our intentional healing, or qigong, or ecstatic dance?

“Life… [has] three main constitutional elements: a) a highly complex (bio)chemistry – material level, b) a complex coherent regime as introduced by Frohlich and later elaborated by Giudice et al. – (bio)energy level, and c) active information working on both previous levels and integrating them into one organized functioning whole – trans-material informational level.” – Igor Jerman, 2016

Now for a little categorical syncretism:

a. JingEssence (Physical matter) Biochemistry – Polar molecules – Earth
b. Qi – Breath (Thought) – Bioenergy – Coherent regimes – Man
c. Shen – Spirit (Ether) – Active information – Organizational function – Heaven

This quantum biological ontology is a recapitulation of the Sanbao (Three Treasures) in Daoist metaphysics and the ubiquitous triplicate ontology found in many systems of thought (Christian, Kabbalistic, Hellenistic, Vedic, Polynesian, etc.).

384cd-jing-qi-and-shen

In this sense Qi is a Mercurial force, acting as intermediary between Heaven and Earth. In Daoist Alchemy, yi is associated with the “go-between” (mei), given it’s correspondence with the Earth phase (the phase between seasons, the center) and with the intentional aspect of the Spleen. Qi and the function of the Spleen are intricately tied in Chinese Medicine.

With this emphasis on the relationship-oriented function of qi, it’s role in the Four Stages of the Zhong-Lu tradition of Daoist Alchemy must also be noted. The practitioner is tasked with transmuting essence into breath, breath into spirit, and spirit into oneness. Qi is literally the intermediary between these two domains of the human being, before being enfolded into the implicate order of the Dao. Qi exists between the informational electrodynamics of the quantum vacuum (shen) and the macromolecular world of biochemistry (jing).

According to Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallee, the concept of qi in Chinese culture has its roots as far back as the 14th century BC in the naturalistic notion of wind (feng). The wind was believed to give life to the insects and plants in the Spring. It is an invisible force which compels something to move. As the notion of qi began to develop in Chinese culture, it was first seen as an influence penetrating Earth from Heaven (as in the six qi). It was seen as the basis of yin and yang and ultimately, the basis of reality itself. It was eventually understood as what lies behind form and simultaneously the relationship between forms.

All these notions share something in common with the Ether’s relationship to the physical world and with our understanding of the electrodynamics of quantum biology.

Ether is an invisible force which gives both form and function through its physical expression. It is the source of the quantum coherence which unifies the informational structure of space-time. The Ether is superfluid, meaning that it’s movements are self-coherent across unimaginable levels of scale (this would not be hard to do given 10^93gm/cm^3 of energy).

In the sense of qi being a relationship, the notion of coherence and the informational density (i.e. level of connectedness) within space adequately reflect this. The only definition any materialistic psychobiologist has for consciousness is essentially the coherence of the firing of neurons. Call it brainwave entrainment. Call it neural synchrony. It is information sharing between shen and jing between the ethereal and the material – and one of the products of this information sharing is the biological neural networks we call nervous systems.

Somehow these biological neural networks are able to grant sensation, perception, and even what we perceive as choice in the case of human consciousness – due in part to the fact that microscopic biochemical capacitors in your brain are doing the same dance. They are resonating. Contemporary psychobiological understanding (whatever that means) seems to neglect the remarkably fundamental impact of electromagnetism on the nervous system, even down to the inevitable electromagnetic pulse created by each action potential of the 10^11 (one hundred billion) neurons in the brain. Remember, Maxwell taught us that all fields extend into infinity.

What an unimaginably complex field it must be that “generates” the unity of consciousness! Pure chaos! Consciousness must be an illusion! The patch isn’t really red! It just looks like it! …said the philosopher.

The contention here is a holonomic brain theory underpinned by an ontology of morphic resonance through a unified spacememory network. (Now, that’s a load of technical terms. If you’re not familiar, I encourage you to take a look in the show notes and keep an eye out for the work of David Bohm, Rupert Sheldrake, and Nassim Haramein et al., respectively.)

The patch is in fact red and consciousness is realer than real – it is all there is.

As hinted here, it is awareness itself which interacts with matter to generate psychic and synchronistic phenomena. To qualify this further, it is human awareness interacting with what is fundamentally a form of proto-consciousness inherent in space (call it, the ether). The intentional focus of consciousness (attention) allows the information density of space-time to perform a sort of fractal implosion through it’s self-same relationship. You hold your hands out, you feel the qi, and little by little or lots by lots – you are healed and so are those around you. You have brought greater consciousness into being simply by holding space. This is the non-binary principle of mind-matter coherence cultivationconsciousness through consciousness.

Just keep swimming.

On The Nature of Qi and Source Qi

Qi is to electromagnetism as steam is to water.” – Eileen McKusick, Founder of Biofield Tuning

Eileen McKusick states that what we call “subtle energy” in the West, is “really a form of diffuse magnetism” or “a diffuse magnetic fluid”. (I would add to that – superfluid.)

How fitting, the ancient pictograph for qi,…

cropped-d06ce0c1f81717ad5d76611119a610d0-fortune-cookie-reiki-e1531770018522
…which represents the “steam that rises and falls from a cooking pot of rice.”

Many consider the nostalgia for the archaic that is so pervasive in alternative, esoteric, or even – gasp – New Age descriptions of reality as some form of magical thinking and a logical fallacy . However, there are key concepts that informed ancient man’s interaction with the world that are largely alien to modern man. For our purposes, the most important of these notions is animism – the notion that everything is alive and has a subjective interiority. In the 18th century this idea was repackaged, given the largely mechanistic milieu of the time, as vitalism.

The modern man’s pursuit of scientific description has directed us away from inspirited phenomena and from the philosophical notions that have perennially underpinned an animistic worldview. The Ether has been written off as bunk – ever since it was demonstrated that there is no resistance acting on the Earth as it moves through space, as if it were assumed to be moving through some sort of soft-serve ice cream. This discovery was used to “disprove” the existence of the Ether. (Again, see superfluid.) This was the Michelson-Morley experiment and was first conducted in 1887. The Planck density and “vacuum fluctuation” phenomena are also overwritten in the mathematical equations understood as appropriately explaining the world. Again and again, physicists are given a “fudge factor” in their equations to rule out what are, invariably, etheric effects.

I believe it is important to state here – clearly – that the notion of spirituality and metaphysical notions that invoke Divinity are by definition tautological, recursive, and self-affirming (see CTMU.). In exactly the same way that the Ether has creeped it’s way back into contemporary physics by way of dark matter and dark energy (after being thrown out of the work of Maxwell, Planck, and others), the nature of reality itself is fractal-holographic, i.e. the code governing space and time begins to collapse in on itself the deeper you look (ahem Fermilab, CERN, LHC, etc.).

https://assets2.bigthink.com/system/idea_thumbnails/41898/size_896/higgs.jpg?1326296349

So what does the Ether have to do with our everyday lives? Absolutely everything.

If you didn’t see that answer coming, well…

The theoretical quantum coherent properties of the Ether have been discussed in my prior articles [1, 2]. Let us continue to expand on those ideas. What is necessary for the medium of our healing and our alchemical practice to be the able to receive and transmit the information needed to bring about health in the body, mind, and spirit?

All it needs is to be a fluid where the particles in it are coherent. Density, charge, and other seemingly limiting factors shouldn’t play a role in the information-carrying capacity of qi. The effects of entanglement persist completely irrespective of distance. Lucky for us, all fluids exhibit this ability to become self-coherent to some extent. It is as simple as the molecules of water surrounding a whirlpool spinning around the vortex in phase. Biophoton emissions are really a product of the flow of weak plasma – bioplasma. The impending realization that biophoton emission is best explained as a phenomenon of bioplasma is akin to how the discovery that there are “pockets of distilled water in the brain” preceded the discovery of EZ water.

So, if qi is everything…

…then what separates qi from the special and distinct form referred to as Source Qi (Yuan qi)? This topic is of incredible interest to me. In Daoist Alchemy, part of the process of “making the medicine” is refining one’s qi until it becomes more like Yuan qi. (see my video, Introduction to Daoist Alchemy) I’m postulating that the kind of quantum coherence that takes place where coherence and decoherence meet (relative to one another) has something to do with Source Qi. This means that Source Qi has a mind of it’s own. According to quantum biology, this intersection is where life emerges from the interaction of water, light, and carbonates. This intersection is the curved line running through the center of the taiji – the symbol of yinyang.

While this border is described as a line, it is best thought of, like practically all things in reality, as a continuum. There are infinite forms and gradations of this relationship to explore and experience. We might describe certain activities as being more spiritual. Think of this as being an impetus for why we pray – in order to bring ourselves more in touch with the source of reality. Even though the worldview espoused in this podcast is one where the Divine is ever-present and all-pervasive, we recognize that the feeling of awareness is something we seek to engender more of in our day-to-day lives. When we are in flow, the resonance between our minds, our bodies, and – indeed – our very lives themselves with the field of pure energy from we are made is enhanced. This is something you know, when you feel it.

Every time you pray, meditate, or simply engage in the cognitive act of awareness, you vibrate and entrain the Ether with your movements, with your thoughts, with your intentions. Every time… you bring more of yourself into resonance with Source.

The Healing Power of Spirituality

In my last article, I laid the foundation for some concepts regarding our actual, physical interaction with the Dao. What has always been understood in all cultures under mystical pretense is now the purview of a unification between physics and biology. One that – if appreciated with an appropriate sense of wonder and an open heart – affirms for us the limitless spiritual power that is built into the reality in which we live. A power in which we play an important part.

Who would you rather be: a person stuck on an island with or without the power of prayer? Some might say, “prayer is delusion and I’d rather die without false hope.” My contention is that those people simply have yet to feel the power of prayer.

For those of us that have – where does this power come from?  The obvious and easy answer is God. It’s one that need suffice for us, ultimately. But while we’ve got time and the brains to do it, let us explore some ideas.

This article is not intended as an explanation of the power of God – rather it is a brisk walk through theology, metaphysics, and a study of consciousness. For our purposes, recognizing the influence of a higher power in one’s life is spirituality. Prayer is the act of making an appeal to that power. In this respect, energywork can easily be regarded as a form of prayer. The highest form of energywork is that in which the practitioner sees him or herself as a “hollow tube”. “It’s not you”, we often tell ourselves; it is the Source Qi (yuan qi) of the universe. The act of performing energywork is not the release of stored energy like a battery (i.e., capacitance) – it is simply allowing the right energy to flow (i.e., conductance).

At the quantum level, the glue that holds matter together is the coherence between the waves that governs its behavior. As our understanding of this phenomenon deepens, we realize that the effects of coherence are not just obscure occurrences in vacuum chambers with entangled particles – coherence is everywhere, all the time. In fact, quantum biology tells us that extremely high-level coherence is what keeps organisms together both at the cellular level and the level of the whole organism.

All cell membranes exist because the waves which stand on their surface are musical – literally; in phase.” – Dan Winter, Physicist

Quantum biology also tells us that the formation of life is a natural product of the interaction of water and light with the quantum information coherence network of the Planck scale of space. Light and water are literally extracting energy and information from the vacuum in a way that negates entropy and gives rise to organisms that feed, grow, and reproduce. The miracle of life is nothing short of a miracle, even when given a physical explanation.*

This coherence can happen between structures at different levels of scale. This encompasses interactions between the organization of mind and matter itself. In fact, the unimaginably complex interplay of information and energy at the Etheric (quantum vacuum) level of space can be interpreted as a universal form of proto-consciousness. One that is everywhere, all the time, and is constantly exchanging information-energy with all matter and especially matter organized into life.

I’m certainly not making the claim here that God can be somehow reduced to the total information-state of the quantum vacuum – but I am saying they are related. What’s being presented here is a theology in which God is both immanent and transcendent, both ineffable and interactive. How fortunate are we to have a spirituality that is so dynamic and yes so robust and full of life?!

Being alive means that you are in some way an animated expression of this intelligence. You have a bio-scale supercomputer of quantum coherence following you around (your mind), in which you can direct your attention and cognitive processing power. Take into consideration the role of feedback in this process. If biogenesis, a mystery that has tormented evolutionary biologists as long as their fields has existed, results from feedback between the quantum electrodynamic interaction of water and light with the information of the quantum foam, then what are the possibilities of the quantum electrodynamic relationship between one’s mind and one’s conception of a higher power.

Spontaneous and miraculous healing occurs everyday, all over the planet. Could it be that through the power of our spirituality we are tapping into the high-level coherence of the Ether and thereby bringing our own bodies into resonance with that highly ordered field?

“Coherence is health.”

*It’s a bit more complicated than that. More on this to come.
