I searched for God and found only myself. I searched for myself and found only God.
The hints that we are one with Mother Nature’s energy lurk wherever you turn your inquisitive gaze. The Bible says that in the beginning there was Light. Could ‘light’ be a reference to the visible light or the explosion of the Big Bang, or some other form of energy of the universe? Early Buddhist writings state that in the beginning wind created gyatams, the first worldly forms, by a spinning movement. This movement of the wind was melodious and it was this kind of sound that combined the form and the matter of the gyatams to form a whole. Could it be that both the Bible and the Buddhist texts were right? That the light and the wind (energy movements) worked in unison to put together first living forms on our planet? Do we even have a form or is this an illusion? This is open to discussion, but one thing is certain – there are energies in and around us which animate our earthly bodies.
In 1892 Nicola Tesla, a Serbian-born visionary inventor, decided to reveal the presence of some of these energies. He developed a method picture taking using high frequency currents to capture the “aura” around objects and people. In a dark room, Tesla would turn on the generator of his own design. He would stand on the platform-electrode, and his body would get wrapped in the glow. His hair would stand on end, while the glowing rays of light would radiate into the space surrounding him. Nobody should be trying to repeat this dangerous experiment.
Inspired by both Tesla, in the 1930’es Russian husband and wife team Semyon and Valentina Kirlian have developed a method of picture-taking which confirmed with meticulous precision that the living things are being of energy.
This visionary couple had assembled a Tesla generator in their own tiny apartment and ran hundreds of experiments on capturing energy imprints on film. Kirlians discovered that human skin is a repository of complex bio-mechanisms which are connected via nervous system with the internal organs. Another fascinating fact discovered by the Kirlians was that the electric picture of the person’s “energetic aura” depends not only on their state of health but also on their mood and emotional state.
While the Kirilians were toiling away on the visual aspects of demonstrating the energetic potential of living things, many intuitive researchers of the human energy in the West were also working towards the same goal. Upton Sinclair, for example, a famous American writer has published a book called Mental Radio in the 1930. In this book his wife, Mary, intrigued by telepathy, talked about having trained herself in guessing what was portrayed in the pictures drawn by her husband or someone else in the family. Of 290 pictures obstructed from her view, she has correctly described 65. This was significant statistical result, far superior to a random chance.
Here is what the great Albert Einstein said after reading Sinclair’s book: “I read the book by Upton Sinclair with great interest and I am convinced that his subject deserves careful consideration, not only from amateurs, but professional psychologists. The results of the telepathic experiments carefully and clearly presented in this book are far superior to the ideas that a researcher of nature considers possible. On the other hand, in case of such sincere observer as Upton Sinclair, there is no doubt in accuracy of his presentation; his faith and reliability causes no doubt.” In case you are wondering how to classify the research conducted by Mary and Upton Sinclair, it is a very straightforward telepathic experiment. Telepathy is not a weird notion. Derived from the Greek tele, which means ‘distant’ and pathe, which means ‘experience’, telepathy implies transmission of information from one person to another without using any of our known sensory channels or physical interaction. Pretty cool, huh?
In 1929 German scientist Hans Berger was experimenting with weather telepathy can be explained by a certain pattern of brainwaves, he eventually wound up inventing a first EEG (electroencephalographic) machine, which measures brainwaves and traces them out on paper, just like an EKG machine.
When I was in my 20-ies most people would smirk at the mention of telepathic experiments. Not today. Experiments like Sinclair’s and Berger’s helped to pave the way for Brain Computer Interface Research for paralyzed stroke victims of today. Teams of computer scientists, neuroscientists, and engineers all over the world are working in teams to decode the link between thought and movement. As a result of brain-computer interface research, many people who have been completely paralyzed can now have a tiny implant in the motor cortex of their brain detect their thoughts about moving the computer cursor and thus operate a computer like an able person would. Research is under way to extend the application of the Brain Computer Interface to operating robotic arms.
We are living in exciting and disturbing times when our capacity for producing and processing energy is evident and undeniable. It would be prudent to get acquainted with this built-in potential and learn how to protect it and nourish it. By doing so we will be one step ahead of the human tendency for self-destruction. To be continued.
