Golden Flower Physics, Pt. 2: Fractal-Holographic Principles in the Secret of the Golden Flower

This article is a continuation of my attempt at syncretism in light of the Daoist mysticism and meditative techniques espoused in the Secret of the Golden Flower and other texts. This project seeks to compare Chinese cosmological and ontological concepts with those found in contemporary fringe science topics – most interestingly the fractal-holographic and fluid electrodynamic properties of Nature.

“The light is neither inside nor outside the self. Mountains, rivers, sun, moon, and the whole earth are all this light, so it is not only in the self. All the operations of intelligence, knowledge, and wisdom are also this light, so it is not outside the self. The light of heaven and earth fills the universe; the light of one individual also naturally extends through the heavens and covers the earth. Therefore once you turn the light around, everything in the world is turned around.” – Taiyi Jinhua Zongzhi, 3.10, Cleary

By “light” the SOTGF means the light of pure consciousness. This implies an underpinning assumption of the primacy of consciousness, meaning the belief that consciousness is more fundamental to Nature than physical objects, i.e. atomic matter. Dean Radin highlights this as an intrinsic difference between the current, physicalist paradigm of science and the coming paradigm (information-energetic). He also notes that quantum systems models have yet to account for the effect of psi – in other words, we still don’t know how psi happens but we are looking. I would contend the answers are out there, waiting to be consolidated (e.g. Holofractal sub-quantum informatics, or something).

We also see that light is the monad or prima materia in this case. There is a single substance in the ontology and it is light. However, logically, where there is light there must be somewhere for it to shine. Therefore, darkness is both implied and explicitly talked about in the text. “Darkness returning to darkness, by a coming together of kind” is the process in which the po (lower soul, physical) partakes after death. The po “suffers in life” and “looks toward death”. The book says “this is what consciousness is”. By consciousness in this case, I believe them to be referring to perhaps the echo chamber of the Void – implying that in some way both light (pure consciousness) and darkness (physical basis of consciousness) are both “consciousness”. Seeing the light is still the object of the practice and this light is the fundamental substance of the world.

The light of one individual spreading throughout the whole world can be taken as more than a remarkable testament to our personal power, but a hint at the known implication of Maxwellian field-theory that all fields extend into infinity, both mathematically and in consideration of thought experiments like the Butterfly effect.

“Once you turn the light around, everything in world is turned around” – in exactly the same way that the information stored in one proton is shared by almost all other protons in the universe. Every movement of every particle in the universe effects the holistic information-state of the entire universe. The staggering implication is that by observing the nature of one’s own consciousness, one is affecting the entire physical universe as well.

“Turning the light around is not turning around the light of one body, but turning around the very energy of Creation.” – 3.5

“If each point contains the whole, then each point has all the information.” – Nassim Haramein, physicist

“The words focus on the center are most sublime. The center is omnipresent; the whole universe is within it. This indicates the mechanism of Creation; you focus on this to enter the gate, that is all. To focus means to focus on this as a hint, not to become rigidly fixated. The meaning of the word focus has life to it; it is very subtle.” – 3.12

The last two sentences have more to do with praxis, but there is ontological information to be gleaned from this passage. The omnipresent center that contains the universe is something that is experienced in meditation, but there may be cosmological reasons for this being built into the structure of reality.

I suppose part of the assertion implicit in this entire intellectual endeavor is there is novel and useful information to be gleaned from the practice of turning consciousness in on itself or treating consciousness as it’s own object. “Consciousness is always consciousness of something” is a trope in the Western philosophy of mind. What kind of consciousness? This is a matter of shishen (perceiving spirit) vs. yuanshen (original spirit). Yuanshen correlates with light and with the yang energy of the hun (ethereal soul/higher soul) which is to “overcome” the yin energy of the po (corporeal soul/lower soul).

The next statement is a kind of holofractal statement in itself – that the information dynamics of the universe itself actually implies the mechanism by which it came into being in the first place. The nature of the thing is tautologous and self-evident – so recursive and self-referential in nature as to escape language. “You focus on this to enter the gate, that is all.” To focus on this is to gently and patiently nurse within oneself the notion that consciousness is not only fundamental to the structure and function of reality, but that it is so homologous and self-similar in nature as to escape explanation as an actual matter of fact. The ineffability is built into the ontology – it is not a failure of semantics or science or instrumentation.

See the light and see everything.

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 vitalism.

Man’s pursuit of scientific description has directed mankind away from etheric phenomena and from the philosophical notions that have perennially underpinned vitalism. 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.).

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 energywork to be the able to receive and transmit the information needed to bring about health in the body?

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. 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.

While this border is described conceptually as a line, it is best thought of, like practically all things in reality, as a contiuum. Think of this as being an impetus for why we pray – in order to bring ourselves more in touch with God. There aren’t only two forms of relationship with God. There are infinite forms and gradations. We might describe some people as having a closer relationship with God than others or certain activities as being more spiritual. While the worldview espoused herein is one implying that the Divine is ever-present and all-pervasive, we recognize that a feeling of Zen or of spiritual harmony 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 lives with the very Source field of pure information-energy-potential is enhanced. This is something we know and feel.

Every time you do energywork, you vibrate and entrain the Ether with your movements. Every time you do energywork, you bring more of your overall being into resonance with Source.
