Getting Real : Tea for Two

Energies Collide

from madly - Wednesday, May 30, 2007

I am not trying to prove any scientific theory here, just some questions and ideas that seem interesting to me. Call me crazy if you wish, but I prefer the word mad. :)

I have been mulling over the concept of energy. How energy is a part of everything we are and everything surrounding us, our world, and reaching out to the furthest solar systems. Everything can be broken down to its source… which is energy. Everything existing consists and can be broken down to the basic atom and all atoms have electrons, sub-atomic particles which have an electrical charge; therefore, every atom contains energy and everything is made up from atoms… meaning everything is made out of energy. I know that there are differing levels of energy in everything and obviously some things have a faster moving more powerful energy. Some atoms have more energy than others do. Some have more electrons orbiting their nucleus, and some process at a greater speed than others, but both are made up of exactly the same energy and so is everything that has ever come into being. Energy surrounds us, makes us, is us. We are energy and in so being, we are all connected and everything is connected to us.

When you begin to think of yourself, people, and everything around you, in this way, it opens your eyes to many interesting thought provoking ideas and concepts. You see life in a more connected simplistic sense, at least I do. Maybe life is as basic as the energy that makes us and connects us? Maybe we have made it complicated when in all actuality life is quite simplistic, having to do with the energy we possess, put out and attract back to us? Every one of us contains something similar to a radio frequency that is constantly sending out and receiving energy and maybe this is what life is about… the energy which surrounds us and is us.

I have come to find that many answers are simple in nature and we are the ones that make them seem complex and difficult. Sometimes you have to lose something in order to find it. To look at things in a different way you must lose your focus in order to see clearly. Just like one of those paintings that you have to blur your vision in order to see the hidden picture. Maybe the answer is right in front of me… or better yet… a part of me.

There have been so many interesting studies done on the concept of energy. So many ideas on what we could do if we could fully use and understand how we are made and how we are all connected. In the same way that our body must communicate within us, in the very same way, we have the capability to communicate to everyone and everything on this planet and beyond. I would dare to believe the limits could very well be endless. Scientists have performed many studies leading to the discovery that everything that exists resonates on a precise frequency and that everything is connected in this way and can communicate through these same frequencies. Everything… everything IS connected! All a piece of the same whole and part of the same connected communication system.

It seems so simple when I break it down this way and it would seem that we could communicate or connect with anything, anytime, anyplace, and anywhere. An atom on one side of the world can transmit a signal received by any other atom on the other side of the world, because they are capable of signaling each other with oscillating frequencies. This communication happens non-locally and virtually instantaneously. Again, I would compare it to a radio frequency. There are hundreds of frequencies out there with people talking on them, or playing music, and all one has to do is tune the dial to the preferred frequency. That is what our atoms do, they tune into whatever frequency needed in order to communicate with other cells all over the world or the universe. Our energy has neither limits nor boundaries and we only know the half of what we are putting out and receiving in return. From this idea one could explore the possibilities of almost anything.

It could even go as far as explaining the concept of “God”. Maybe what some think is God is the connection formed between all life that flows between all of us; a power that never ends. This could be the idea behind God, the energy that creates life, the very power of our universe, shared between all of us, lent to us and then returned again. Maybe energy is as close to a God as there is, yet omnipresent and omnificent in the very same way some believe God to be? Maybe people search for the creator not knowing it is only the energy found within us, shared between all life. Instead, maybe one could celebrate and respect life itself and the power given to us through this energy that created everything.

Energy being able to transmit across oceans or countries explains why you can feel a connection with someone, strong feelings with out ever physically meeting them. A connection is a connection no matter how it is formed. I guess that would explain how you could connect with someone over the computer or on the phone and feel things for them that seem unexplainable. If it is energy that attracts one person to another and if energy can travel through unseen frequencies then it is easy to accept how you could attract energy from someone you have never met in the physical. Your energy connected even if you have never been face to face and you are sending out a frequency that has been picked up and returned. You have met their energy and you can relate and connect with it and in the same way, so can they. You have met them… you have met their essence.

My brain can communicate with your brain and I can sense your energy that radiates from you. We do affect each other in this way. I could give you a negative charge or a positive one… make you alive or drain you. It is all about the energy that we transmit to each other. Maybe miracles have more to do with someone’s ability to use the power of energy? Even Einstein believed in the law of attraction. He believed that if we want something strongly enough, we put out a certain energy that gives it to us. Yet, in the very same way, if we are scared to death of something, we put out that fear, that negative energy and bring it upon ourselves? Maybe we are the cause and effect of everything that we put out and attract back to us? Our energy could be the very power that works for us or against us.

Have you ever entered a room, spoken to someone, or come close to a certain person that made you feel instantly icky or uncomfortable, as if they made your skin crawl? Or have you ever been instantly attracted to someone because there was just something about them and they almost seemed to light up the room? What if this has to do with their energy… the energy they put out? Be it negative or positive, you can pick up on it almost instantly. It either attracts you or makes you want to retract and retreat. Then there are others that don’t have that level of energy and are not as easily noticed. Could it be that different people have higher levels of energy than others do? Maybe it is as simple as us being attracted to certain energies; we want to connect with them, as almost to recharge our own. I believe certain people can restore and give you more energy, but in the same way, some can take it from you.

When you fall in love, maybe it is all about energies attracted to each other, bouncing of each other and thriving from the power of what some may call “love”. Maybe all love is, is a strong connection of two energies that need each other for a time to restore or power their source. Maybe it lasts and the energy is just that strong or maybe you need to move on to other power sources when the connection fades? Could love be as simple as a basic need for more energy or the connection between two similar energies? I think it could very well be that simple. Take an orgasm for example, could an orgasm be a solid source of positive energy… the act of two energies colliding?

Sex to me is this way… two people drawn to each other… feeding off of each other’s amazing energy. You pass it back and forth between you, until it builds and builds and becomes so strong that you explode with a shock of energy, so powerful, that it sends waves through your entire system and leaves you in a sense of complete rejuvenation, yet utterly depleted at the very same time. You took all their energy and in return you gave all of yours to them. I don’t think there could be a greater way to exchange energy than to explode into each other. It is beautiful in a way, a fantastic shock to your very system that recharges and revitalizes you.

Having regular sex and orgasms have actually been proven to help you live longer, have a healthier life, look younger, feel better and have also been proven to give you energy. The touching of two people is very important too, as if we thrive on the connection being made and the energy being exchanged on such a massive level that comes during sex. Maybe sex gives you a positive energy charge that your body needs to fuel its senses and stay fully powered? You can see it on a person the next day after having great sex, as if they have been fully charged and replenished; almost come to life again.

Some seem to think that we use such a small part of our brain, but maybe we use more than we know, but we are not connected to that part of our energy and so we aren’t aware of our full ability. We are bound by our bodies, but our energy is never bound, it flows freely and is constricted by nothing, not even our disbelief and ignorance as to what we might accomplish if we were able to perceive it. It is even said that if we knew how, we could walk though walls. There is no reason why the atoms between two solid sources shouldn’t be able to intertwine between each other, to connect and pass between spaces.

Maybe energy could explain psychics and their power to see into the future, the past or even read minds? Maybe they just have a greater sense of people’s energy and can use that part of their brain, that most aren’t privy to? Maybe it isn’t a special “power” but rather the ability to fully use the power of energy that each one of us possesses?

So then, what happens when we die? Our energy leaves us and our body dies, but not the energy that gave us life. So do we really die or are we simply released? When a person dies they become brain dead and this is gauged by the lack of electrical activity registered on an EEG scan. So, basically what we call death is our life leaving our body. Everyone knows that energy lives on forever, so how can we die if the energy that gave us life still remains and will do so forever? Does death mean the end or does it mean the ultimate freedom for our energy to live on, continue or and fulfill its next purpose? Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it simply changes form. All energy that ever existed still exists, so in a sense we will live forever. Maybe death is only a release?

Sometimes I feel so limited in this body. We must sleep, eat, take care of ourselves and all the mundane lame day to day things we must do that take up so much time and life from us. We think too much, we abuse our bodies and our minds, but our energy can never be damaged or destroyed, it remains pure and untouched. This body weighs me down and restricts me, holds me back. I have always felt this way, that I wasn’t meant to be trapped in a body. I was meant to fly, to be free, to shoot across time and space. To understand more than what my brain will allow me to learn.

When I die, only my body will die… the essence of me, the real me, will live on forever and maybe that is when we really live. Maybe our starting point builds our energy and our death releases it and it then becomes or connects with whatever it is most attracted to. Maybe us looking for answers in this life is silly because this life is only a beginning of what we truly are, energy, and in some form we will live on forever. This life may very well be only a small part of the existence set before us. What a beautiful thought, that our essence, the very source that gives us life, will live on forever… that our energy will never die.

Supposing that our energies or "soul" lives on after we die and eventually transfer to other living beings, perhaps the force that attracts two people to each other is simply our own energy trying to reconnect with a part of itself that now exists in someone else. Perhaps what makes people "click" is their energies' recognition of a part of themselves in the other.

Perhaps two people can share a common single energy which, even though they have yet to meet, recognizes itself and moves them to want to be together so it can reunite. Perhaps the more energies there are in common, the stronger and longer the attraction lasts and the more irresistible and inevitable it becomes.

What if everything we do, everything that happens to us, everything that affects us is all just our energies reaching out to unite itself--becoming attracted to like energies and repelling from energies that are incompatible?

Mad dreamer… I like that name a lot. I liked what you said too. Who knows what it is that attracts us to some and repels us from others? It could very well have something to do with what you said. The point is… who knows? My point is… think about it and try to expand your mindset a little, at least in a fun sense of adventure sort of way. This was the only purpose of my article, for us to explore the unknown. Not to judge it or to say what science can prove, but to realize just how much is left to be discovered.

I must admit that some of you, that I spoke with in the chat room, have disappointed me and not because I want you to agree with my silly ideas or believe what I tell you to be true, but because of your lack of interest in the unknown, because you seem to have settled for the limits preset for you. I know that when we lost our faith in religion a lot of us decided that if it cannot be proven, that if it isn’t scientifically based, then we have no tolerance or room for silly unfounded notions and in a lot of ways I am this way. Yet, I personally believe, there is a huge difference between putting your faith in something and looking outside of what we can grasp and imagining more. Ideas are where a proven fact begins and crazy notions can be just that or maybe they could inspire a trip to the moon and back?

I am in no way comparing my crazy thoughts to something as great as a past scientific discovery, but rather trying to make a point that it is okay to think about things and to question and explore the craziest of ideas and when someone has them it doesn’t necessarily mean they were stoned out of their mind or off their rocker (although for me it just might ;)). I think we should question and explore ideas when they come to us, because if we don’t, we may lose the art of discovery which is a huge part of learning what life is about to us individually. We are only limited by ourselves and what we can perceive, because if you can’t picture it, there is no way to achieve it.

It has nothing to do with religion or faith, it has to do with acknowledging that we don’t know all there is to know, that we are learning more and more everyday and if we only settle for what can be proven then we will only have a confined limited knowledge of existence. It is facing the fact that there will always be more to learn and discover… countless ideas and theories that have not yet been proven true. To know that you don’t know and yet realize there is so much left to be known is when you begin to allow for the possibilities of the unknown. Crazy ideas mean you are thinking for yourself and isn’t that what we always wanted to do? (reply to this comment

The body does require all those limiting and mundane things. However, some of the energy you describe as very powerful is only experienced via the body. If you were note weighed down, restricted, held back, you would not have the exchanges you describe with other weighed down, restricted, held-back and body bound energy centers. Maybe those experiences are what you have in lieu of flying. Then again, maybe being able to fly would make you much happier, what do I know.

Would an existence that did not bind and weigh us down make us into the people who are exhilarated by the occasional exchanges, etc. of energy? We might be satieted with our lightness and long for gravity and matter.

In my opinion, it is the physical circuitry of our body-bound brains that provides the ecstasy...and the misery. But I might suggest taking a physics class or two. That kind of stuff does wonders for the ability to tackle existential questions like those you pose.

Well, it does sound like some of the "f'ing" might from time to time be transporting you out out of your mind (and everything else that is limiting) :-)

But I am not saying what you think. Just trying to drop a hint of how I dealt with taming the questions I had/have about time and absurdity and limitations that were awakened as I grew up in the cult. To me, certain thinking and working that people had been doing for hundreds of years helped me go faster in my inquiries. Certain basic formulas and equations exist for some of the basic issues that nonetheless cover a huge range of human experience, and when you learn them you free yourself up for the more interesting and sophisticated questions which remain open.

If that is not enough, let me say that I am sure that you have done certain things that make you light years ahead ofme and you probably don't even need what I did to help me figure things out, but oh well, they always told me I was slow.(reply to this comment

Yikes! That certainly brings flashbacks! What happened to "God is in the business of breaking up families"? I guess that wouldn't have sold as well ;) That song should go down in history with "20 Minutes To Go" and "We Live in the Fifth Dimension" as the worst of the cult's propaganda songs.

Here's a good question. What do you do if one of your friends from The Family is leaving for Africa and you're afraid to lose your friendship and influence with her? You know that if she leaves, she probably won't be coming back to the States. But you know that if you tell her what you think of The Family and try to talk some sense into her, try to inform her about what The Family is guilty of, she will consider you an enemy from that point forward. She hardly makes it clowning here in the US, how is she going to make it that way in Africa? If she really wanted to make a difference, there are so many charities she could enlist with (Peace Corps, Life Today, Operation Smile, World Vision, American Red Cross). By the way, Falcon, that is what was going through my mind when I wrote what I did to you, I did not take offense to your statement(s) and I knew that there was some truth to what you were saying.

It's hard to believe, for a while she was thinking of going to school to be a hospital chaplain. And now she wants to go back to the "mission field". (reply to this comment

"God is in the business of breaking up families" was for the members, and "Daddy please come home" was what you tell outsiders. There is a reason they restricted listening in the Homes to the tapes that were for sale to outsiders. That song made me angry at the cult, because I had lost all contact with one of my parents due to Family policy. Can you imagine them actually being truthful and making it "Daddy (or Mommy) please come home from WS, you'll find plenty of members without kinds who would love to work in the inner sanctum"?(reply to this comment

Maybe she doesn't have a very good landing place once she jumps out of the cult. Can you offer help, like a place to stay and help getting into school, or even just help her have a plan?
Seems like leaving the Family will be harder once she is in Africa and I suspect the cult is busy moving every possible body into the boonies to assure that they are stuck. I have noticed my sister is getting a lot of pressure go to China. Her children are already poorly educated and I can't imagine what will happen in a third world country.(reply to this comment

Since you used the name, I imagine you are familiar with the subject. So may I ask you, what is your stance on one of psychology’s longest ongoing debates “the mind-body problem”?(reply to this comment
From methinks
Friday, June 01, 2007, 20:22


IMO its's is more of a long, onging cultural (and/or religious) debate. Psychology only seems to be moving the mind and the body, and its understanding thereof, closer.

I may sound plumb stark crazy for saying this, but even though I live in my mind, I am a mind/body monist. To my possibly stupid understanding, the mind-body problem is a bit like the "arm-leg problem". One may be stronger, more shapely or more well regarded by the inhabitant, but both are part of the same organism and so is my brain. So maybe some of use relate better with our brain that with our arms or legs (or, OK, that with bour feet, hips, waist, chest, neck head and joints in between as well), but it's more like asking "are you a cat's purr person or a cat's meow person" than "are you a dog or a cat person".

Don't get me wrong. My dreams are much more significant to me than the waking world these days. But I don't think I would dream without mu body.

Much as I may value one above the other, there is a big difference between the two worlds. A determinative consideration in the role each takes is governed by the reality principle. In the "waking world", there is a whole cast of characters that will pick up the same script each day. Whatever my dreams tell me, and however much I get it more, the waking part is not in agreement to work with that. It is in the control of other wills -- which is not to say that my dream life is entirely in my control (it is partly under the control of my wish fulfilment, and partly under control of my fears; what a mix). All I know is that what I do in one of them gets me a paycheck that lets me live the other in a reasonable shelter, instead of on a stinky, noisy sidewalk where I imagine the dreamlife would be compromised, as well as by a struggle to clothe/feed/warm it that was less predictable.(reply to this comment

What do you back up this whole idea of energy transmission with? I dont know, but the idea of atoms sending out and tuning into frequencies all by themselves doesn't sound very scientific. Don't you need some sort of transmittor to send an electrical-magnetic charge over a distance? Radio waves don't send themselves out automatically, they have to be transmitted and I would think that it would be the same with energy. A radio wave is created by an instrument that creates a changing magnetic field, necessary to the transmission of energy. I may be wrong but I don't think the atom all by it's little self is capable of changing the magnetic field and transmitting energy to another atom on the other side of the world.

Of course if you pull out a nice scientific explanation of your idea I'd be interested.

As mentioned above, I am not trying to prove any scientific theory here, just throwing out some crazy ideas that hit me now and again. I am probably wrong, but I don’t know… who is to say that they know for sure my theories are incorrect? As far as I am concerned we know very little about energy, life and other realms of existence. They used to think the world was flat… didn’t mean it was, just meant they hadn’t gone to edge and looked over yet. We will know when we get there, until then, all one can do is ask and be open to new ideas. Nothing is ever learned or gained by being closed off or satisfied with the little we do know or believe to be fact. There are countless things that scientist haven’t proven yet, all that means to me, is that they haven’t disproved it yet, nothing else.

Philosophy and science go hand and hand. You cannot have one without the other, because philosophy is the act of questioning and theorizing ideas that scientist can then take and try to prove or disprove. The word “philosophy” is of Greek origin and literally means “the love” or “friendship for wisdom”. You have to ask the questions in order to obtain the answers and to allow for scientist to do their job or they wouldn’t even have a job. This is how we discover and gain wisdom and it will never end as long as someone takes the time to look outside the box.

Now I know that some of what I said is very farfetched and I am mainly just throwing ideas out there for the sake of discussion, but the particular idea you mentioned is one that I do believe could very well be possible and I will try to explain, but I am not a scientist, nor can I prove it to you, but I will expound, if you will. It is easy for someone to believe that an atom can transmit to another atom within your body, and must do so, in order to be able to heal and function properly. Your body is a closed system, just like the universe is and just like your atoms can communicate within your body, so should all existing particles be able to achieve a similar form of communication within the universe. All one has to do is take this theory a little further into seeing the world or universe as a larger closed system and then on and on. Yes a transmitter must be used, but who is to say how or what could be used as such? The atom would just have to know where to tune in to be able to receive the proper signal and who can really prove that they don’t have the power to do such a thing? Like I said, call me crazy, but who really knows?

I read your 1st paragraph and I think it's just the idea of the atom in it's self being able to transmit a wave of energy over a long distance that bothers me. I would think that it would take a whole lot of atoms to transmit even a little bit of energy over a distance. And since a "signal" is passed from atom to atom in a wave, it can't be something that an atom can tune into. The atoms themselves transmit the signal which would be picked up by a system larger than themselves.

I was thinking your idea may have more to do with photons. It's very interesting though. I think i'll ask my physics/chemistry teacher about it(reply to this comment

This is supposedly what the "Law of Attraction" is all about. Our thoughts are broadcast with actual electrical impulses whose frequencies can be measured. Supposedly, those frequencies can affect matter and have an impact on our environment. Proponents of this concept say if you want something bad enough, and you focus on it and think about it every day and associate strong, positive emotions to those thoughts, that the forces of nature affected by the frequencies of your thoughts will eventually give you what you want. Eventually those thoughts are supposed to affect you and your environment in such a way that what you want will come to you with ease.

I often feel the same way you do about life: like I am trapped in a body. I've often wondered if my consciousness is just being used to attain some unknown objective; if my existence is really just to serve some greater purpose which exists outside of this universe and will be achieved whether I exist or not.

That is why I am determined to live for and enjoy the moment. Not that I don't plan for the future or create my own goals, but I am determined to live as if every thought or action, every feeling, every piece of information captured by my senses is all there is to life and all that is worth living for.

Passionate. That is the word that would best describe how I want to live.

I like that line in your profile: "Passion to the point of insanity"

While we're on the subject, you might find this interesting.

Science has discovered that the human brain, in the processes of thinking, actually generates and uses up a certain amount of energy in the area of the brain tissue. The generation and employment of this energy produces heat, and actually increases the temperature of the brain areas, as may be proven by the use of the delicate registering instruments. Found in every well-equipped brain is as much an actual force as is electricity or the ordinary magnetism of the lodestone, and is governed by much the same general laws and rules. And, like electricity or ordinary magnetism, it is not confined to
the point at which it is generated, but, instead, it may be, and is, diffused to points beyond. In other words, the thought energy of the brain of a person extends beyond the limits of his brain, creates a thought-atmosphere around him, and registers an effect upon the brains of others coming within his field of energy.

The discovery of radio-activity in certain newly discovered elements of matter, notably in the case of radium, has led science to investigate the matter of the possible radio-activity of other substances. The result is most surprising, for advanced science now announces that every substance is radioactive, that is, every substance is constantly radiating energy
of force from itself. This discovery serves to harmonize the previously separated facts regarding thought-transference, etc., and it is now accepted as a fact that the human brain is strongly radioactive, and is constantly sending forth streams of radio-energy. The same laws, which govern the radium, are now perceived to govern the brain action. This simplifies the matter, and brings the subject of thought-transference into the general field
of science, and out of the realms of mysticism. The subject is now taught and studied, on a scientific basis, in the principal universities of the world, and new discoveries are constantly being made regarding it. The physical pole of personal magnetism is not to be found in the flesh, blood, or bones of the body – for these are but the crude machinery by which the higher parts of the human organism moves and acts. Instead, it is to be found in that most wonderful part, or parts, of the organism, known as the nervous system. This
nervous system is just as wonderful in its way as is the brain, and its effects in personal magnetism are just as important.

"Nerve-force," is that strange, mysterious form of energy, which controls all physical movements, and yet, at the same time, appears to be something higher than physical itself. It is akin to electricity or magnetism, in its real
nature, and, like these forces is impossible to define. Nerve-force is something far different from the matter of which the nervous system is composed. The nervous system, from spinal cord to the most delicate nerve filament, is at the best but a system of wires, relays, etc., over which the nerve-force travels, or, else complicated reservoirs in which the nerve-force is stored.

All occultists, ancient and modern, have recognized the existence of a mighty subtle force of nature – one of nature's "finer forces" – which is most potent it its effects and activities, but which, nevertheless, defied all power of analysis or definition. The reason that science has never been able to classify nerve-force is because, like electricity, it is in a class by itself, and is different from any other form of force – so different that it cannot be classified with other forces. Science, in some cases, has endeavored to treat it as a secretion of the nervous matter, but that is a folly akin to that of the materialistic philosopher who tried to define mind as "a secretion of the brain," just as the bile is a
secretion of the liver, the gall a secretion of the gall-bladder, etc. Such attempts at definition cause only a smile on the face of the wise.
The occultists, on the contrary, while not attempting to define nerve-force (recognizing it to be in a class of its own) nevertheless have discovered the source of its origin, and have given us valuable information as to its use. They have given it many names, as for instance: "vital force," "vital energy," "life force," "vital fluid," "vital magnetism," etc., and in the case of the Orientals, the terms "prana," or "akashic energy" have been applied to
it. But under all of these different names, the occultists have always meant the one and same thing, i.e., nerve-force. The name I use in describing it, 'nerve-force," is employed simply because it is found specialized in the nervous system, and not because of any idea that it originates there. Indeed, as you shall see in a moment, it has a far higher and more elementary source of origin.

The old materialistic school of physiology has attempted to show that nerve-force, like the bodily material, is derived from the food we eat, and is created by chemical combustion of the latter. This, however, is only partly true. While it is true that there is a certain amount of nerve-force in fresh food (having been gathered there during the life of the plant of animal of which the food formed a part), and while it is true that a certain amount of this nerve-force is taken up by the system of the person eating the food, particularly if the food be fresh, nevertheless, the amount of nerve-force so absorbed is comparatively small, and is far too little to supply what is needed by the individual to run his physical organism. And, even the small part so obtained is not derived from the chemical combustion of the food. Food chemical combustion results in giving bodily heat, but never in creating nerve-force.
The true source of nerve-force is the same as the source of electricity, namely the universal ether that fills space. Like electricity, also, this force is available to human wants only when it is associated with. The atmosphere is charged with nerve-force, which is taken up and absorbed by the nervous system, and stored away in its great reservoirs, from whence, in turn, it flows over the nerves when required, by the physical or mental needs of the individual.

But, you naturally ask, how does the body absorb the universal nerve-force – through what channel does it enter the system. The answer is plain, viz.: In plant, animal, and human life, the nerve force is breathed into the system. In other words, the process of breathing, in its higher and lower forms, is not alone that of extracting oxygen or other elements from the air, but also that of extracting the universal nerve-force at the same time. When this is understood, it will be more easily understood why the living thing
perishes so soon if the process of breathing be interfered with. The understanding of this secret of nature throws a much-needed light upon the important part played by breathing, in the life of all creatures.

Moreover, the experience of every individual will bear ample and generous testimony to the fact that certain persons, flowing over with vigorous nerve-force, will so radiate the energy that it is actually perceptible to those shaking hands with them, or even coming into their vicinity. These individuals fairly radiate health and vigor, and exert a positive healing and invigorating effect, on those with whom they come in contact. In a similar manner, is manifested a lack of sufficient nerve-force, by those unfortunate individuals who go around unconsciously absorbing the nerve-force of others, and, in extreme cases, becoming actual vampires sucking the vital forces from those around them. Who of you have not met this last class of persons, and have not noted how depressed and weakened one is after having been in the company of such persons for some time? The average person does not need any further proof in this case, beyond that afforded by his or her own experience.
The atmosphere of some persons is such that it causes us to let them alone, and to take no stock whatsoever in their business propositions. Others, instead, imbue us with confidence and trust, and give us the feeling that we would like to do business with them. Some persons leave upon us the impressions that we have been in the presence of a snaky thing, and we often can scarcely repress a shudder of disgust and dislike while others create in us the impression that the other person is a good friend and can be depended upon as a helper and comrade. Why?
It is not from anything these persons have said, for, as we all know, some of the slipperiest persons are often the best and smoothest talkers; and some of the best and most dependable persons are often very reticent, and even "short" in speech. The reason lies deeper that words. It is the "feeling" that we experience when we come in contact with persons, rather than any report of the reason regarding them. And this "feeling" is caused by the registry upon our sensitive brain organism of the thought-vibrations of the other person's personal atmosphere. Not only are these things noticed in the person
himself or herself, but even the very residences, stores or other places frequented by the individual are also affected by the continuous influence of the thought-vibrations of his or her personal atmosphere. Did you ever notice how some houses produce upon you a feeling of sadness or woe, or worse; while others seem to carry within them an air of health and good cheer, happiness and content? This is often true although the house may
have been unoccupied for some time. So strong do the mental vibrations of the atmosphere of the person or persons formerly inhabiting them. In the same way some offices and places of business are so saturated with the vibrations of the personal atmospheres of their occupants, that one is forcibly impressed by the same upon entering the door. A man may disguise his thoughts by his words or his facial expression, but the mental vibrations of his personal atmosphere will frequently "give him away."
All of one's mental states will become manifest in his mental atmosphere, and accordingly, will affect those with whom he comes in close contact.

I could geek out for hours about the potentials of non-local, instantaneous communication. Imagine being able to communicate entire feelings, pictures and mental states in this way. I would not be surprised if the brain is capable of detecting that form of communication--which is why people may feel they have metaphysical experiences or feel they are subconsciously aware of these messages--but evolution hasn't had enough motivation to fully develop that part of the communication system because it has done just fine with the other methods of communication so far.

I was reading up about self-awareness the other day and what it means. From what I've read, it seems there are different levels of self-awareness--some people are constantly self-monitoring while others self-monitor infrequently, and others still are completely oblivious to themselves.

Thus, it would seem that the evolution of self-awareness is still somewhat at its infant stages.

If that is the case, then I begin to wonder if there are other things in our environment or other levels of "self" that the human mind is as oblivious to as an animal is oblivious to its own existence. Might the fact that we have not yet evolved to be aware of consciousness beyond our own be the reason we do not have seemingly supernatural abilities such as telepathy?

It would seem that empathy is a small step in this direction, but it is still too involved in the "self"--taking another's feelings and reinterpreting them as one's own--to be truly "exo-aware" (I don't know if a word exists for the concept I'm referring to).

I'm not sure how the brain would cope with such a concept, because, although it is perfectly capable of managing more than one state of consciousness--albeit, one at a time--(e.g. Multiple Personality Disorder) such mental functions are typically due to mental illness and are not conducive to the basic law of survival. A person with the ability to be exo-aware would, in concept, be able to be aware of both her and another's consciousness simultaneously. I suspect that the other person would also need to be exo-aware for something like this to work, seeing as there would possibly need to be a connection of sorts made. This way, both persons would experience each other's thoughts, feelings and emotions as well as their own.

I suppose the closest thing that an experience like the one I picture could be compared to would be two people having passionate sex. Each person is exhilarated by their own pleasure and yet simultaneously conscious of the other's pleasure, creating a near union in thought and emotion for that short period of time in which they are lost in each other, resonating at the same frequency--almost able to read each other's thoughts--completing a perfect balance as they share each other's passion; connecting in mind and body.

Now that I think about it....if the memories and stored impulses of the brain could be communicated along with the thought, then I would imagine that it would modify the brain's wiring so that both people now share a near identical point of view, which would likely be a "middle of the road" point of view for both of them, since they both gave and took of each other's emotions.

Perhaps then, the human mind would finally find its equilibrium--each mind receiving half of whatever mind it connects with until eventually all minds share a balanced understanding of the whole.

I don't know that that would be a good thing.

I guess the definition of consciousness plays an important role in the possibility of exo-awareness. What is consciousness? Is it the ability to store memories? And if so, is consciousness dependent on memories? In other words, if one's conscious reactions, feelings and emotions are based on accumulated memories, then is exo-awareness impossible without first acquiring all of the memories associated with that consciousness?

It's a shame that my lifespan is limited to this flash of time in eternity. What I wouldn't give to exist--to be conscious--in a more advanced state of evolution. There is so much I feel the mind should be capable of and yet, at this point in its evolution, it is trapped inside a fleshy shell, left only to speculate about its full potential. least the speculating can be enjoyable. :)

I am not exactly sure how that would work as basically what I gathered from your idea is that we would blend consciousness in a way that would amount to the perfect union of thought combined and shared to the point that it may be difficult to differentiate between who’s thoughts were who’s. This is a beautiful idea, but I agree that something is lost when you lose your sense of self and become a balanced shared existence. If we were to blend ourselves with everyone we come into contact with wouldn’t we lose the diversity that separate entities bring to life?

That is part of our beauty, our diversity of thought and balance… diversity is the basis behind balance. An extreme is of course one-sided which makes it an extreme; thus, needing its counterpart to create equilibrium to the equation. I do believe that we all have a certain energy, yet I strongly believe that we all possess a different level or kind of energy, which gives us a sense of inimitability which would be taken away if we were to combine thoughts to the level that would create some kind of coexisting consciousness. I have sensed on some occasions that I could truly feel someone in a way that allowed me to read their thoughts or their feelings being projected from them without a word being spoken between us, but this I consider very different than the idea of almost becoming someone else by sharing to the point that you cannot discern your thoughts from theirs.

Understanding yes, blending I am not sure. Now the way you described such a blending in the act of sex does make sense to me and I believe this is ultimately achieved during a certain level of sex… hardly all sex would fall into this category. I think you would really have to feel something for your partner and be in touch with their senses, to where you do share each other in a way for a moment that combines your essence to the point that you collide into the same consciousness for a time. You couldn’t remain this way of course or you would not be able to function as an individual; however, I do believe that we are touched constantly by each other in a way that does affect us.

I agree. That's why I don't think it would necessarily be productive or a good thing.

None of what I've said above is based on anything other than speculation and it is certainly no scientific hypothesis. I was just taking a thought and running with it. "Geeking out" if you will. :)

I'd like to do some research into thoughts and their measurable properties. I've experienced feelings of getting "vibes" off of people and feeling either instantly at ease or on edge around them. I don't know whether this is a psychological reaction in response to sensory input or a reaction on a sub-atomic level in response to electromagnetic stimuli. But I think it is something many people experience to varying degrees.

Rudimentary thoughts can already be captured and used to control electronic devices or computer games and scientists have already begun development of cyborg-like memory ( so it may be possible that the future sees a device capable of transmitting thoughts and memories from one brain to another.

I firmly believe all of that. Sometimes I call it soul. Sometimes people think I'm being religious. But I'm always referring to the lifeforce that is a part of all life. I feel it always. If someone looks at me from a balcony on the fourth floor, strangely, I will look up and meet their eyes. That is energy at work. When I visited my brother's church, and they were all praying fervently, the atmosphere was electric. No wonder they believe so strongly. They were harnessing all their energies. I haven't ruled out the notion that prayer can do something, but it is totally misplaced of course. It's not some higher being that people are pleasing and petitioning, it's the concentration of energy. Probably most of the time it does nothing however. I think if humankind goes on thousands more years, perhaps these secrets will be discovered. Perhaps not. But the soul, the life, the energy, the mind. There is something there. Occasionally you will brush paths with an evil person and just shudder. You just feel it.

Actually, if you study religion they tell you that the connecting issue in all religions is the 'transcendent being' or 'alter ego' that is trying to find 'peace'. It is a notion that the Buddhists firmly believe, and why they seek no possessions. They believe that the life force that makes up the human essence is constantly in motion and constantly searching for enlightenment. It is what causes dreams; the 'supreme being' of the inner self goes on journeys of self-exploration while the body refuels via sleep, and the memories you retain as 'dreams' are simply the memory of your 'soul' as it transcends reality as we perceive it to be.

I don't know how much of it is real, and probably never will. The concept of energy as the fuel of our 'spirits' is a fascinating one, especially when that spills over into daily interactions. I personally believe very strongly in existential energies that some people are more perceptive to or receptive of. I think most people bury those perceptions or 'rationalize' them as religious overtures which is the very contradiction of what their energies were trying to convey.

Energetic connection is what causes people to say the exact same thing at the exact same time...or for couples to finish each other's sentences and thoughts without any verbal prompting. I agree with the notion that you can sense someone immediately upon entering a crowded room, or get 'good' or 'bad' vibes off of people. Some people know how to control their 'chi' and I think that some people have learned to harness their energy's manifestation to the point that they can't be 'read' upon first contact but have to be prodded ever so slightly in order for a formed opinion to be reached.

As for the notion that connections can be made without 'face to face' meetings, why not? It would explain much of the Internet phenomenon as well as other such correspondences and interactions that have a real, tangible feeling without any physical interaction.

A mutual response to another's energies. Perhaps this is the human equivalent of pheromones in the animal world. Something that can transcend distance or geographical obstacles in the search of that connection that we are inexplicably drawn to before having seen or touched the object of our abstract fascination and desire.

Conan, I really enjoyed your comment, especially what you said about dreams. Sometimes I get these crazy feelings about dreams having a life of their own, an existence separate than ours yet linked by our energy. I know that it sounds a little farfetched, but could it be that dreams have more of a purpose or life than we give them credit for? I sometimes feel as though our bodies are simply a place for our energy to be, in a sense, contained. Dreams could serve as a release or an outlet for our energy to explore, freely move and meet other energies along the way. What if dreams are as much a part of life as our waking existence? What if there are two distinct levels of consciousness that are not necessarily aware of each other, sensed, but not understood? What I am saying is, what if when we dream it is just as real for us on a different level of consciousness as our waking life, but we don’t realize or remember until we are asleep and in that realm of consciousness again?

Have you seen that move “Passion of Mind” starring Demi Moore, where she lives two lives and cannot figure out which is the dream? In one life she has children and then wakes up with a completely different life the next day, both seeming completely tangible to the point that she cannot possibly discern which one is reality. What if this is possible on some level through our dreams? It might explain the phenomenon we call deja vu. A feeling of certainty that you have experienced a situation or a feeling to the point that it throws your senses for a minute and sends you mind a whirl. What if on some level we could see what would happen or what choices we were to make and this is what a déjà vu is? Maybe we do have another existence that our energy lives all on its own that we are not fully aware of, but only sense when we are sensitive enough to our given energy?

I don’t really know, falcon and although I know that a lot of what I say may seem to support the theory, for some reason I am not keen to the idea of reincarnation… don’t really know why. I guess I would rather believe that instead of living over and over again, a contained form of our present existence, we are freed. That we do change in a sense, not into a visual life form, but a new form of being, one that would release our energy. I like the idea that maybe we could shoot off into the universe, connect with a star or a light source, maybe even the sun.

I guess if you were really attracted to a certain energy that someone else put out maybe you could connect to theirs when you die and this might explain why some people have memories of having past lives, because the energy of that person has connected to theirs. Maybe your essence, your energy will stay in a house or a place that it felt bound too… not in a haunted sense, but more a part of your essence was left behind and can be sensed by others. I sure hope I don’t have to do this “living in the body” thing over and over again, I would rather just die and that be the end, if I am not allowed to be free in the way I crave to be.(reply to this comment

I don’t know rainy, obviously I know little on this subject that I find so fascinating, but I just can’t believe that when you die your energy, soul, or essence or whatever name we want to give it, completely ceases to exist. I am not suggesting reincarnation or any kind of religious notion of an afterlife, yet, for some reason I just feel that this body will only hold me for a time. Energy does not die… it simply leaves the body and changes form… it cannot be destroyed, as has been proven that all energy that has ever come into being will remain, change yes, but never ceases to exist. If this is true then you cannot be simply “erased” by the act of death.

Sometimes it seems that a body is a prison cell for your soul. I feel this crazy energy in me so bound and restricted by my day to day routine that it is bouncing off the walls forced upon it by my body. Don’t you ever just get that overwhelming feeling that makes you want to scream or I don’t know, just anything to get all this energy, feelings and ideas out of you that seem to want a life of their own? I realize I am probably giving more meaning to my name “madly” right now, but I don’t care, because I have always strongly felt this way. I think that is why I feel so free and alive in my dreams and I have feelings that don’t easily come to me in my waking consciousness. I believe there is an entire hidden level of consciousness that we are not privy to, because it is beyond our grasp, but I sense it now and again and I have no proof of its existence, yet I would fight for it in a way, because I have felt it so strongly in me and around me.

I like all these ideas very much Madly. I don't understand the scientific theories about energy very well. My pet theories originate soley from my own head and have no basis in science. I just think, well, you can feel life. I feel wonderful energy from nature, animals, plants, and of course people. I also feel some from old buildings and antiques, even second hand shops, but it could just be my wishful imagination.

But I'm not a believer in ghosts. I sort of think, the thing that tells the brain to do its job, the cells to reproduce, the heart to beat, the blood to be that vital oxygen-carrying living substance, whatever it is, that is life. Life is a force. For sure. it appears and disappears, and when it's gone,everything stops, rots, decomposes.

If I'm not mistaken, scientifically, energy cannot be destroyed, merely transfered. So in that sense, our energy survives the death and eventual decay of our bodies.(reply to this comment

To continue to harp on Buddhism, they believe that their energies do indeed continue on after death until they are attached to a newer, younger, more vibrant life force which is why material possessions are superfluous to them. They believe that their mortal shell is merely the transportation unit for their 'real self' which is on a never ending quest toward enlightenment, and why they are careful what they put into their bodies, and the way they conduct themselves.

I'm not a Buddhist so I don't know all the details, but I did have a class or two on religion and philosophy in college and the little I know is truly fascinating.(reply to this comment
