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 (the soul of the physical body) 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 the 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 ontology 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.

One assertion implicit in this entire intellectual endeavor is that there is novel 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 (soul which comes from spirit, yang soul) which is to “overcome” the yin energy of the po (soul of the physical body, yin 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 of instrumentation.

See the light and send it back to where it came.

Ep. 04 – Intentional Healing and the Planck Space

Click here to listen to the podcast episode for this blog.

There is no accepted definition for energy, other than those that refer to electromagnetism or energy’s relationship to matter (like, for instance, E=mc^2). Since the dawn of quantum mechanics in the early 20th century, interpretations of reality in terms of the information that makes it up appear more and more appropriate. This is what’s referred to as a digital physics, and there’s many iterations of this theory in contemporary physics.

This description is in lieu of Newtonian mechanics, which sees nature as physical, material, and fundamentally composed of matter – usually involving the interaction of particles, corpuscular bodies, and the like. The strict adherence to this description of reality is a position we know as physicalism. The discovery that matter can be understood as both a particle and a wave (simultaneously) is the great insight of quantum physics. Both perspectives are simultaneously true – E equals mc^2. Newtonian mechanics is yin within yang. Quantum mechanics is yang within yin.

To take further extend this metaphor, Bohmian mechanics is the yin within the yang of the yang within the yin of quantum mechanics.

Matter and energy are the same in the same way that 0 and 1 are both binary code.

What is a thought, in it’s simplest terms, other than an organization of information? The minds influence on matter is increasingly well-supported in scientific literature, e.g. the minds ability to move random number generators away from randomness via intention (i.e. more 0’s or more 1’s by willing it) [1][2][3], or the mind’s ability to intersect the path of light in the famous double-slit experiment by remote viewing into the box where light is being beamed [4]. Both of these are clearly demonstrated in the research of Dr. Dean Radin.

These effects are present independent of distance and even when the subjects are electromagnetically shielded in a Faraday cage. There are no “psi waves” propagating through space. More on this in a bit.

At the quantized level of space, the “atom” is literally a whisp of pixie dust floating on an endlessly deep ocean of pure energy (Planck density: 10^93 gm/cm^3). “There is enough energy in a teacup of space to boil all the oceans of the world”, said Feynman. Turns out, this was a gross understatement. How, then, is matter stable under such unimaginable pressure?

The ground substance of reality is the information state of quantized, Planck-dense bits of data. The code that governs this data is perfect. Nothing ever gets off it’s tracks. All matter in the universe accesses this database to “know where to be at all times”. At this level, there is nothing but pure yin and pure yang interpenetrating one another; this is an image of the Taiji.

What we have been seeing for decades in the laboratories of Radin, Dunne, and others is that your intention has direct access to this database, and even to the code itself. Sound like the Matrix? The Planck scale is about 30 orders of magnitude more dense with information than the level of organization of the brain, but the degree of connectedness (novelty) in that information is matched only by what we experience as consciousness. I contend that it’s not due to wave-like effects but because of scale invariance that mind shares its influence on the material world independent of mechanical effects. More on scale invariance in other articles. In the meantime, take a look at this article.

The effect that intentionality has on reality is not only the basis of prayer, magic, and energywork, but essentially all of the meaningful action in human life. The simultaneous direction of intention and attention, brings the information complexity of the Planck scale into resonance with the information complexity of the mind-body space by some kind of feedback (or feedforward) mechanism. This cross-talk is the mechanism by which intentional healing and psychic phenomena occur.

By integrating mind, body, and spirit through energywork and Qigong, we entangle our being with the ground substance of the universe. In doing so we become more like the Dao.
