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.

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.
