what they been saying, new
age Theosophists/Blavatsky people,
While "bulk water" is a mysterious and wonderful substance, its has recently been discovered that water, where it is interacting and interfaces with other stuff, interfacial water has very different and remarkable properties. There is, for example, Pollack exclusion zone water (this is relatively recent, millenial, and it is an experimental/empirical findings). And then there is the work of del Giudice and his colleagues with "quantum coherent domains" (which issues from the theoretical application of Quantum Electrodynamics [QED] to the behaviour of liquid dipoles)...
in living systems, animals, plants... water sings! It is a vibrating/pulsing
plasma of quasi-free electrons and protons oscillating
as coherent quantum domains. Emilio del Giudice looked
at the behaviour of water with QED, and he found "Quantum Coherent
at my friend Linda's, just before leaving, I was knelling by the cat,
Kliban, my hand touching (but not resting on, not pressing down)
over her sacrum (2),
but now with the thought that our (living) flesh is electric plasma,
and I reckon I felt and saw (internally) the fields! (as light)
So, living systems are interfacial waters and are vibrant/oscillating/pulsating as "coherent" electric plasmas... the living pulsing stuff of life
this is the biggie, that the substance of life is plasmal water
leave the pulsing water, the electric quantum
singing waters, for a moment, and think about brain waves...
a reminder about
(uh-oh... I have just "learned" (March 2016) that (some say) piezoelectrical phenomena (and second harmonic generation) only occur in crystals "without inversion symmetry" : and apatite, the crystal in bone, has inversion symmetry. The piezoelectric activity in bone is attributable to the collagen only! some say. I need to research this further! Back to the drawing board.)
Back at the drawing board:
Back at the drawing board having discovered first, that the crystalline calcium phosphate in bone, apatite, is not piezoelectric, and that furthermore, the mineral in bone is not single crystals but packets of crystalline platelets my thoughts went something thusly (he won't give up, will he?)
There is some empirical observations that need explaining:
~ there is Beneviniste (St. Laudy)'s ultradilute antigens and Eweida's ultradilute DNA dot-blots They demonstrate quite convincingly the ultradilution/homeopathic "potentization" phenomenon (see below).
~ we note that this is an iterative process, and that it is one in which we see the apparent loss of information (and effect) and then the return of the effect (information) as with "Poincare's recurrence" (which we will refer to simply as "recurrence").
~ I have speculated that ultradilution/potentization is a matter of harmonic overlay (hence we have an expectation of recurrence.
~ in the classical Kentian practice of homeopathy a small set of iterations is employed (namely 6C, 30C, 200C, and 1000C/1M). We need not find the recurrent iteration in order to see physiological responses: so I reasoned that, in all probability only the recurrent iterations are active, and in that case the iterative generation process is likely happening in the body. What better place for that to happen, I speculated (back in "89) then in the bone found the bone to be a living meta-crystal - a lattice of collagen piezo-units with bone crystal latticed through! And that the nerves in the periosteum are sensitive to vibration! 0.5 to 10 Hz and 200 to 500 Hz. (Oh, and that we put the homeopathic remedies under the tongue where (as they turn into some molecules dispersed in saliva) they can radiate their signals under the dome of the palate, in the arena of the mandible.)
But, the bone crystals are not piezoelectric!
But, the collagen fibers are!
So maybe I've been misreading the bone like Rudolph Steiner's ear
Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the Waldorf School movement, spun a vast rational system he called "anthroposophy". Steiner intuited that the body was mapped on the ear, but where Nogier derived his auricular map from empiricism, Steiner derived his from his rational system. Steiner said the head was mapped at the top of the ear, the chest in the middle and the abdomen at the bottom. Steiner got it upside down! Rationalism is a useful and necessary exercise, but it is in danger of getting things backwards, if it stays near the truth at all.
But, what if I'm looking at the bone structure/function upside down: what if the mineral links between collagen molecules aren't, say, processing: what if they are tethering! OMG what if that's where we are getting the generation of subharmonics! not through the mineral crystals themselves, but through their longitudinal tethering together of the collagen molecules... hmm
(disordered surface layer
"Imagine a conjurer's
rope. Take a segment out of that magician's rope - say one foot out
of ten - and hold it taut between your hands, and twang it. Now (by
magic) put it back in the original rope. The note, the vibration, in
the small piece will pattern and inform the longer piece. The longer
piece will now carry that information, but it will also, during the
process, generate harmonics, multiples of that original note. But note,
in the dilution process (which the homeopaths have traditionally called
"potentiation") it becomes intuitively apparent that we will
be generating both harmonics and subharmonics of the original pattern.
And this explains one of the mysteries of homeopathy."
What are the bone crystal packets doing? Are they semi-conductors? Transistors
with "exciton" stuff going on, or what the eff? (interesting,
though, how a little bit of mineral lends mechanical rigidity to bone...
back to II: Bone as meta-crystal, living crystals (and the generation of ultrahigh-frequencies) ...
the brain is sitting inside bone, the meta-crystal (hydrate) ! ! !
little gem like crystals ... the microchips ... they are piezoelectric!
they are transducing
brain is surrounded by these myriad sensors :
piezoelectric molecules vibrating !
collagen with it's piezoelectric fibers is a superconductor
for the protons (del Giudice) and for high frequency electric signals
(Feynman on rectilinear systems) so the crystals are interacting
through this pathway (electrically and mechanically) as well as photonically
and! ... the nerves in the periosteum (the membrane round the bones) are tuned to sense vibrations! (and some of the "strange" tingling sensations we sometimes feel, could some of this not be our sensing of the bones? though surely much may be "subliminal")
theory: and its other dimensions...
Now the other dimensions are almost infinitesimally small: and they are "Calabi-Yau" shaped (apparently): which is rather beautiful...
but if these other dimensions that the strings are vibrating in are tiny, plank length in size, inside... then it will be only the ultrahigh-frequencies that will be interacting at the relative scale of those tiny places.
the other dimensions, they are all "here",
"here" where the big pulse, Big Bang, originally occurred
(which is everywhere, and everything is expanding away in 3 dimensional
space from that "here", everywhere, but this tiny inner mote,
which is here, everywhere, this cosmic mote... is it all entangled here?
IV: iteration iteration iteration in the CNS
when I talk here about iterations, what the are
we talking about?
Langton's ant, with its emergent phenomenon, presents another very simple iterative behaviour illustrating the dialectic: that simple generates complex very quickly.
Poincare's recurrence is a third example of iterative behaviour. Here we see information appears to disappear and then later reappear (with further iteration), and we may expect to see Poincare's recurrence in the highly iterative second harmonic generation which will be going on in the bone crystal lattices.
But the iteration that I wanted to talk about here, is the iteration that is occurring at so many levels in the central nervous system.
For example, in the neural organisation of vision we see multiple sequential neural representations of the visual field. Between each of these successive levels of visual analysis the information is "processed": successive levels (successive mappings of the visual fields) are iterations of the informational field/matrix, and each is similar in many ways to the field from which it derived but it's evolved and different, (23) (and is, for instance, analysing aspect of sensations) and of course these processing occur with a small temporal delay so that these iterations, this information is falling down time.
which of these iterations iterations of the visual field is the "visual
field", is vision itself? Not necessarily
any one of them. Possibly the resonance of all of them. where?
and so there are all these iterative processes in the nervous system, falling down time, reflected, and processed, and in the vibrating/pulsing/oscillating living crystal lattice of the skull, and scaled to ultrahigh frequencies, overlapping perhaps, in the others dimensions of string... and we might wonder what fractal wonders are resonating in these systems...
CONSCIOUSNESS where ever it comes from is woven through this
doubt consciousness is more than this, but thus, too, at least here
in the body, it is...
V: How does "ultradilution" enter the story? In several manners, some of which are incidental, and some of which are quite interesting.
Ultradilution is term used
in scientific studies of the biological activity of substances successively
diluted till there is no substance left, in the manner of homeopathy.
(For a more detailed account see "Beyond
Substance" and/or "some
When MAME brought us their ultradilution DNA dot blot phenomenon, the fact that only very specific iteration (for instance, in the illustration, only the 16th and the 26th) are biologically active, while in the clinical practice of homeopathy (in the classical Kentian style) only the 6th, 30th, 200th, and 1000th iterations are used, suggested that the body of the patient itself is generating these harmonic iterations. What tissue might be doing that? Bone seemed a likely candidate, and indeed seems to fit the bill perfectly (right down to the vibration sensors in the periosteum).
So then, let me say, that while I've no precise idea what the "plasmas" look like, or quite how they are patterned, but from the ultradilution work we know, at least, that these signals, these patterns, may represent something as specific as a particular strand of DNA.
also of interest, I think, is that in clinical homeopath, when taking
a patients case (looking for the remedy, the signal, that
might help them), an enormous bias, an enormous "weight" is
give to the "mental" symptoms. And these important mental
diagnostic indicators can be quite general ("sulfur" is famously
an "absent minded professor" type) or quite specific ("silica"
may obsess about sharp objects).
Interesting also, in clinical homeopathy, is the elaboration of the classical medical concept of miasms. Of the whole organism getting stuck in, locked into, particular (pathalogical) patterns.
The take away? There is food for thought, and for research!
VI: an assessment of the status (is this really science?) of such thoughts and speculations, and some further speculations (while we're at it)...
Water in living systems is a cold plasma of coherently
oscillating dipoles (quasi-free electrons and protons) (It
is my understanding that...) Del
Giudice is the real McCoy: a Quantum Electrodynamics physicist looking
at quantum phenomena in water for the first time. The work, however
is theoretical. Del Giudice feels that Pollock's
EZ findings support his theories. I think
we can almost take this to the bank. It's certainly changed my view
of the world!
~ Bone is a living meta-crystal. Yes it is! It will be transducing all the signals it receives and processing them (in manners including second harmonic generation) Yes, this should be so (though there is the question of orders of magnitude that needs to be addressed to assess the true significance of these processes. So yes, this is probably happening, but it is speculative. Indeed the bones as generating e.m. fields. (And when you are trying to feel those fields, move your hands. I suspect also that the skull is a little more sensitive than the hands. And, it's in the periosteum, mate, the sensors!)
The other, inward, infinitesimally small dimensions
of string (6) and M-theory (7+), how real are these? String theories
haven't been satisfactorily resolved (and I think that's because the
things aren't exactly strings: that's just a rough approximation), but
it has dominated theoretical physics for 30+ years. It's is likely close
to the/a truth. And that these tiny other dimensions would be the realm
of ultrahigh-frequencies. Makes sense.
The Central Nervous System is a highly iterative
system. You bet! And strange and wonderful things emerge from
Some even wilder thought/speculations:
the dark stuff, the dark matter and dark energy might be matter/energy
that hardly intersects with the three expanded dimensions of space.
(Yes, maybe, but isn't this just "quantum is a mystery, mind
is a mystery, therefore mind is quantum", the other dimensions
are a mystery, dark matter/energy is a mystery... ) Hmm? But the other
dimensions are (probably) there, so...
~ pixels, quanta
~ and a fourth garbled note which I cannot read, but which I think was the answer to everything...
According to Sakada: in the periosteum there are slow
and rapid responding receptors. The slow receptors are sensing pressure
and pain, and low frequency vibration! roughly 0.5 to 10 Hz. The rapid
response receptors are sensing pressure, pain, and high frequency
vibration, up to 500Hz, with a their greatest discriminative ability
between 100 and 300 Hz (the octave below middle C)
