Zen and the Art of Biophysics

If you’ve ever wondered what the fabric of space-time looks like, take a walk on the beach.

At some point – in some dimension of meaning – metaphor ceases to be metaphor.

The scientist Mae Wan Ho refers to the work of her fellow researcher 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 notion of a new science that unifies disparate realms of knowledge is, in fact, nothing new.

Syncretism is a deep undercurrent in many esoteric and occult systems of thought. From an exoteric perspective, modern physicists pine for a “unified field theory” which can unite all the forces of the standard model. Luckily for us, these “unified theories” exist, waiting to be accepted and more deeply understood. Perhaps there is a reason beyond their “fringe” nature why syncretic ideas are relegated to arcane schools of thought that is more sociological and transcends the scope of this article.

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 name is more than a reflection of the object in question, it can actually reflect part of the cosmic blueprint from which the object is made. The fractal-holographic nature of reality is being played out in front of our very eyes. 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 matter and the dynamics of quantum fluctuations. The past few decades of research into biophysics states that water is the closest thing to an exact, macro-scale reflection 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 discovering the inner dynamics of my deep relationship with the Dao, the Ether, the Zero-point field, etc. specifically through the study of quantum biology.

For now, suffice it to say that after a couple months of intently reading 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. I felt as though  my entire body was sensitive to 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 energywork. Perhaps it is our consciousness bouncing off of the interference patterns of the Ether which resonate back at us, infusing our being with a sense of deep harmony and a feeling of unity with something greater than oneself.

The future science of life will not distinguish between it’s humanistic implications and the physical dynamics that define it’s behavior.

Energy Ontology: Applied and Theoretical

To what extent is energywork a simple endeavor, and available to everyone?

The hands (and space in general), rather than being points of “emission”, “projection”, “emanation”, etc., are placeholders for the intentional focus of consciousness, i.e. attention. The only thing emanating is the expression of a singular, universal reality according to our perception of space-time – flow.

God emanates. Humans take part. This is why in energywork we say, “it’s not you”.

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? 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 “swimming” when we are either suspended in a body of water or, in some important cases, experiencing the flow of energywork or qigong?

“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

Now for a little categorical syncretism:

a. JingEssence (Physical, Matter) Biochemistry – Polar molecules – Earth
b. ShenSpirit (Spiritual, Ether) – Bioenergy – Coherent regimes – Heaven
c. QiBreath (Mental, Thought) – Active information – Organizational function – Man

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.).


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) 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 and the macromolecular world of biochemistry.

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 Jing and Shen 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 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, 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.

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

As hinted here, it is consciousness itself which interacts with matter to generate psychic and synchronistic phenomena. To qualify this further, it is human consciousness interacting with what is fundamentally a form of proto-consciousness inherent in space (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,…

…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.
