Phys­i­cists in Swe­den say they have man­aged to cre­ate light from vac­u­um, the clos­est thing to emp­ty space known to ex­ist.

In find­ings pub­lished this week in the re­search jour­nal Na­ture, the sci­en­tists said they ver­i­fied an ef­fect pre­dicted over 40 years ago by cap­tur­ing some of the par­t­i­cles of light, or pho­tons, that con­stantly ap­pear and disap­pear in the vac­u­um.

A di­a­gram il­lus­trating how vir­tu­al pho­tons bounce off a “mir­ror” that vi­brates at a speed ap­proach­ing that of light. The round mir­ror in the pic­ture is a sym­bol, and un­der that is the quan­tum elec­tron­ic com­po­nent (re­ferred to as a SQUID), which acts as a mir­ror. This makes real pho­tons ap­pear in pairs, phys­i­cists say. (Cred­it: Phil­ip Krantz, Chal­mers U.)
——————————————————————————–

A vac­u­um is a space de­void of atoms, the un­its that make up air, oth­er gas­es and fa­mil­iar ob­jects. That means a vac­u­um is the next best thing to a space truly emp­ty of an­y­thing at al­l—some­thing phys­i­cists say can’t ex­ist in na­ture as we know it, thanks to a phe­nom­e­non called the un­cer­tain­ty prin­ci­ple. This holds that noth­ing can be in a state that is pinned down with per­fect pre­ci­sion.

The un­cer­tain­ty prin­ci­ple en­sures that the vac­u­um teems with var­i­ous sub­a­tom­ic par­t­i­cles that flit in and out of ex­istence. They ap­pear for an in­stant and disap­pear again, the en­er­gy fu­el­ing their ex­istence “bor­rowed” from the void. Since their life is so fleet­ing, they are called vir­tu­al par­t­i­cles.

In the new work, Chris­to­pher Wil­son and col­leagues at Chal­mers Uni­vers­ity of Tech­nol­o­gy in Goth­en­burg, Swe­den said they coaxed pho­tons in­to leav­ing their “vir­tu­al” state and be­com­ing real pho­tons—measura­ble light. The phys­i­cist Ger­ald Moore pre­dicted in 1970 that this should hap­pen if vir­tu­al pho­tons bounce off a mir­ror mov­ing at nearly the speed of light, in a phe­nom­e­non called the dy­nam­i­cal Casimir ef­fect.

“S­ince it’s not pos­si­ble to get a mir­ror to move fast enough, we’ve de­vel­oped anoth­er meth­od for achiev­ing the same ef­fect,” said Per Dels­ing, a phys­i­cist at Chal­mers. “In­stead of var­y­ing the phys­i­cal dis­tance to a mir­ror, we’ve var­ied the elec­tri­cal dis­tance to an elec­tri­cal short cir­cuit that acts as a mir­ror for mi­crowaves.” The “mir­ror” con­sists of a de­vice called a SQUID or su­per­con­duct­ing quan­tum in­ter­fer­ence de­vice, which is ex­tremely sen­si­tive to mag­net­ic fields. By chang­ing the di­rec­tion of a mag­net­ic field sev­er­al bil­lions of times a sec­ond the sci­en­tists said they made the “mir­ror” vi­brate at one-fourth the speed of light.

“The re­sult was that pho­tons ap­peared in pa­irs from the vac­u­um, which we were able to meas­ure in the form of mi­cro­wave radia­t­ion,” said Dels­ing. “We were al­so able to es­tab­lish that the radia­t­ion had pre­cisely the same prop­er­ties that quan­tum the­o­ry said it should have when pho­tons ap­pear in pa­irs in this way.” Quan­tum the­o­ry is the sci­ence of ex­tremely small par­t­i­cles.

Dur­ing the ex­pe­ri­ment, Dels­ing said, the “mir­ror” trans­ferred some of its en­er­gy of mo­tion to vir­tu­al pho­tons so they could ma­te­ri­al­ize. Göran Jo­hans­son, anoth­er phys­i­cist at Chal­mers, said oth­er par­t­i­cles might al­so be ex­tracted from a vac­u­um in prin­ci­ple, but pho­tons are eas­i­er. That’s be­cause the equi­val­ence of en­er­gy and mass, dis­cov­ered by Ein­stein, im­plies that photo­ns—being weigh­tless—can be stim­u­lated “out of their vir­tu­al state” with re­lative­ly little en­ergy. Obtain­ing chunk­i­er par­t­i­cles, such as elec­trons or pro­tons, which make up atoms, “would re­quire a lot more,” he added.

The sci­en­tists said the pho­tons that ap­pear in pa­irs in the ex­pe­ri­ment may be use­ful in the re­search field of quan­tum in­forma­t­ion, which in­cludes the de­vel­op­ment of su­per­fast “quan­tum” com­put­ers. But the main val­ue of the work, they said, is that it aids our un­der­stand­ing of bas­ic phys­i­cal con­cepts, such as vac­u­um fluctua­t­ions. Some sci­en­tists be­lieve these may have a con­nec­tion with “dark en­er­gy” which drives the ac­cel­er­at­ing ex­pan­sion of the uni­verse, a disco­very it­self rec­og­nized this year with a No­bel Prize in phys­ics.

Chi Energy and Somatic Awareness

The field of Somatic Awareness is both deep and wide: each topic of interest and nuance goes deeper and deeper into research, theorems and [consequentially] more information found in a plethora of books.

Here, we will take a look at Somatic Awareness from a very specific perspective: somatic awareness and chi.

Somatic Awareness Defined:

Merriam-Webster defines “somatic” as follows: “of, relating to, or affecting the body… as distinguished from the viscera”.
The term “viscera” is of great importance in understanding the nature of what is called somatic, as the very meaning and play of this word build into the “awareness” thereof.

Again, going back to Merriam-Webster, we find that “viscera” is equivalent to all of the eternal organs located in the “great cavity of the trunk proper”, with regards to human anatomy.

Furthermore, the term “visceral” speaks directly to: elemental emotions.

In effect, the body is aware; and should be able to communicate its various [nutrition; rest; therapeutic] needs on a very basic, emotional level.

The awareness of this communication, the ability to perceive and understand this process of communicating with one’s own body [with a specific purpose/message] is the overarching goal of Somatic Awareness.

This theme has been propagated throughout time in as many cultures. In Issai Chozanshi’s treatise of the martial arts, he quotes the Confucian sage’s somatic understanding of the truth of the self: “The scriptures are within yourself; [those that are written down] only point out what you have not been able to see on your own”.

The instruction we provide will help you get greater insight into your own personal truth, both physically and figuratively.

Somatic Awareness and Chi:

Chi, as defined by Eastern mystics, is synonymous with that which Western scientists have called the Quantum Field. The theories are markedly similar when compared side-by-side. Each [Eastern Mysticism and Quantum Mechanics] speaks of an energy field made up of tiny particles that comprise everything, and move through everything.

Somatically speaking, Eastern mystics have been investigating the “inner space” of the mind/body relationship whereas their Western counterparts have delved into the “outer space” of formally investigating and documenting that which is often perceived yet not specifically understood [as to why such is the case]; hence the relevance of Issai Chozanshi’s quote in the previous section.

Using scientific jargon, the phenomenon of somatic awareness is achieved thru: “bioentanglement- quantum connections within and among living systems” (Entangled Minds, Dean Radin).

Information transmitted on a quantum level, carried throughout space and time, is not only directly related to the functioning of the human nervous system, but also gives rise to more “esoteric” abilities beyond simply wiggling one’s finger: psi-related abilities and a thorough understanding of the physical and psychological “self” are among them.

Somatic Awareness and Chi Development:

We have found “somatic awareness” to be a natural and appreciated by-product of chi training and chi development.

With increased sensitivity to chi energy, greater sensitivity to the messages from our bodies and our surroundings are achieved; the information transmitted on the quantum level through “bioentanglement” can be easily received and deciphered on an emotional level with little to no internal, conscious “analysis”: the difference between “thinking” and “knowing” will be made apparent.

Single Atom Stores Quantum Information

Single Atom Stores Quantum Information

ScienceDaily (May 2, 2011) — A data memory can hardly be any smaller: researchers working with Gerhard Rempe at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching have stored quantum information in a single atom. The researchers wrote the quantum state of single photons, i.e. particles of light, into a rubidium atom and read it out again after a certain storage time. This technique can be used in principle to design powerful quantum computers and to network them with each other across large distances.

Quantum computers will one day be able to cope with computational tasks in no time where current computers would take years. They will take their enormous computing power from their ability to simultaneously process the diverse pieces of information which are stored in the quantum state of microscopic physical systems, such as single atoms and photons.

In order to be able to operate, the quantum computers must exchange these pieces of information between their individual components. Photons are particularly suitable for this, as no matter needs to be transported with them. Particles of matter however will be used for the information storage and processing. Researchers are therefore looking for methods whereby quantum information can be exchanged between photons and matter. Although this has already been done with ensembles of many thousands of atoms, physicists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching have now proved that quantum information can also be exchanged between single atoms and photons in a controlled way.

Using a single atom as a storage unit has several advantages — the extreme miniaturization being only one, says Holger Specht from the Garching-based Max Planck Institute, who was involved in the experiment. The stored information can be processed by direct manipulation on the atom, which is important for the execution of logical operations in a quantum computer. “In addition, it offers the chance to check whether the quantum information stored in the photon has been successfully written into the atom without destroying the quantum state,” says Specht. It is thus possible to ascertain at an early stage that a computing process must be repeated because of a storage error.

The fact that no one had succeeded until very recently in exchanging quantum information between photons and single atoms was because the interaction between the particles of light and the atoms is very weak. Atom and photon do not take much notice of each other, as it were, like two party guests who hardly talk to each other, and can therefore exchange only a little information. The researchers in Garching have enhanced the interaction with a trick. They placed a rubidium atom between the mirrors of an optical resonator, and then used very weak laser pulses to introduce single photons into the resonator. The mirrors of the resonator reflected the photons to and fro several times, which strongly enhanced the interaction between photons and atom. Figuratively speaking, the party guests thus meet more often and the chance that they talk to each other increases.

The photons carried the quantum information in the form of their polarization. This can be left-handed (the direction of rotation of the electric field is anti-clockwise) or right-handed (clock-wise). The quantum state of the photon can contain both polarizations simultaneously as a so-called superposition state. In the interaction with the photon the rubidium atom is usually excited and then loses the excitation again by means of the probabilistic emission of a further photon. The Garching-based researchers did not want this to happen. On the contrary, the absorption of the photon was to bring the rubidium atom into a definite, stable quantum state. The researchers achieved this with the aid of a further laser beam, the so-called control laser, which they directed onto the rubidium atom at the same time as it interacted with the photon.

The spin orientation of the atom contributes decisively to the stable quantum state generated by control laser and photon. Spin gives the atom a magnetic moment. The stable quantum state, which the researchers use for the storage, is thus determined by the orientation of the magnetic moment. The state is characterized by the fact that it reflects the photon’s polarization state: the direction of the magnetic moment corresponds to the rotational direction of the photon’s polarization, a mixture of both rotational directions being stored by a corresponding mixture of the magnetic moments.

This state is read out by the reverse process: irradiating the rubidium atom with the control laser again causes it to re-emit the photon which was originally incident. In the vast majority of cases, the quantum information in the read-out photon agrees with the information originally stored, as the physicists in Garching discovered. The quantity that describes this relationship, the so-called fidelity, was more than 90 percent. This is significantly higher than the 67 percent fidelity that can be achieved with classical methods, i.e. those not based on quantum effects. The method developed in Garching is therefore a real quantum memory.

The physicists measured the storage time, i.e. the time the quantum information in the rubidium can be retained, as around 180 microseconds. “This is comparable with the storage times of all previous quantum memories based on ensembles of atoms,” says Stephan Ritter, another researcher involved in the experiment. Nevertheless, a significantly longer storage time is necessary for the method to be used in a quantum computer or a quantum network. There is also a further quality characteristic of the single-atom quantum memory from Garching which could be improved: the so-called efficiency. It is a measure of how many of the irradiated photons are stored and then read out again. This was just under 10 percent.

The storage time is mainly limited by magnetic field fluctuations from the laboratory surroundings, says Ritter. “It can therefore be increased by storing the quantum information in quantum states of the atoms which are insensitive to magnetic fields.” The efficiency is limited by the fact that the atom does not sit still in the centre of the resonator, but moves. This causes the strength of the interaction between atom and photon to decrease. The researchers can thus also improve the efficiency: by greater cooling of the atom, i.e. by further reducing its kinetic energy.

The researchers at the Max Planck Institute in Garching now want to work on these two improvements. “If this is successful, the prospects for the single-atom quantum memory would be excellent,” says Stephan Ritter. The interface between light and individual atoms would make it possible to network more atoms in a quantum computer with each other than would be possible without such an interface; a fact that would make such a computer more powerful. Moreover, the exchange of photons would make it possible to quantum mechanically entangle atoms across large distances. The entanglement is a kind of quantum mechanical link between particles which is necessary to transport quantum information across large distances. The technique now being developed at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics could some day thus become an essential component of a future “quantum Internet.”



Meditation Changes Temperature

Meditation changes temperatures:

Mind controls body in extreme experiments

By William J. Cromie

Gazette Staff

In a monastery in northern India, thinly clad Tibetan monks sat quietly in a room where the temperature was a chilly 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a yoga technique known as g Tum-mo, they entered a state of deep meditation. Other monks soaked 3-by-6-foot sheets in cold water (49 degrees) and placed them over the meditators’ shoulders. For untrained people, such frigid wrappings would produce uncontrolled shivering.

If body temperatures continue to drop under these conditions, death can result. But it was not long before steam began rising from the sheets. As a result of body heat produced by the monks during meditation, the sheets dried in about an hour.

Attendants removed the sheets, then covered the meditators with a second chilled, wet wrapping. Each monk was required to dry three sheets over a period of several hours.

Why would anyone do this? Herbert Benson, who has been studying g Tum-mo for 20 years, answers that “Buddhists feel the reality we live in is not the ultimate one. There’s another reality we can tap into that’s unaffected by our emotions, by our everyday world. Buddhists believe this state of mind can be achieved by doing good for others and by meditation. The heat they generate during the process is just a by-product of g Tum-mo meditation.”

Benson is an associate professor of medicine at the Harvard Medical School and president of the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. He firmly believes that studying advanced forms of meditation “can uncover capacities that will help us to better treat stress-related illnesses.”

Benson developed the “relaxation response,” which he describes as “a physiological state opposite to stress.” It is characterized by decreases in metabolism, breathing rate, heart rate, and blood pressure. He and others have amassed evidence that it can help those suffering from illnesses caused or exacerbated by stress. Benson and colleagues use it to treat anxiety, mild and moderate depression, high blood pressure, heartbeat irregularities, excessive anger, insomnia, and even infertility. His team also uses this type of simple meditation to calm those who have been traumatized by the deaths of others, or by diagnoses of cancer or other painful, life-threatening illnesses.

“More than 60 percent of visits to physicians in the United States are due to stress-related problems, most of which are poorly treated by drugs, surgery, or other medical procedures,” Benson maintains.

The Mind/Body Medical Institute is now training people to use the relaxation response to help people working at Ground Zero in New York City, where two airplanes toppled the World Trade Center Towers last Sept. 11. Facilities have been set up at nearby St. Paul’s Chapel to aid people still working on clearing wreckage and bodies. Anyone else who feels stressed by those terrible events can also obtain help at the chapel. “We are training the trainers who work there,” Benson says.

The relaxation response involves repeating a word, sound, phrase, or short prayer while disregarding intrusive thoughts. “If such an easy-to-master practice can bring about the remarkable changes we observe,” Benson notes. “I want to investigate what advanced forms of meditation can do to help the mind control physical processes once thought to be uncontrollable.”

Breathtaking results

Some Westerners practice g Tum-mo, but it often takes years to reach states like those achieved by Buddhist monks. In trying to find groups he could study, Benson met Westerners who claimed to have mastered such advanced techniques, but who were, in his words, “fraudulent.”

Benson decided that he needed to locate a religious setting, where advanced mediation is traditionally practiced. His opportunity came in 1979 when the Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of Tibet, visited Harvard University. “His Holiness agreed to help me,” recalls Benson. That visit was the beginning of a long friendship and several expeditions to northern India where many Tibetan monks live in exile.

During visits to remote monasteries in the 1980s, Benson and his team studied monks living in the Himalayan Mountains who could, by g Tum-mo meditation, raise the temperatures of their fingers and toes by as much as 17 degrees. It has yet to be determined how the monks are able to generate such heat.

The researchers also made measurements on practitioners of other forms of advanced meditation in Sikkim, India. They were astonished to find that these monks could lower their metabolism by 64 percent. “It was an astounding, breathtaking [no pun intended] result,” Benson exclaims.

To put that decrease in perspective, metabolism, or oxygen consumption, drops only 10-15 percent in sleep and about 17 percent during simple meditation. Benson believes that such a capability could be useful for space travel. Travelers might use meditation to ease stress and oxygen consumption on long flights to other planets.

In 1985, the meditation team made a video of monks drying cold, wet sheets with body heat. They also documented monks spending a winter night on a rocky ledge 15,000 feet high in the Himalayas. The sleep-out took place in February on the night of the winter full moon when temperatures reached zero degrees F. Wearing only woolen or cotton shawls, the monks promptly fell asleep on the rocky ledge, They did not huddle together and the video shows no evidence of shivering. They slept until dawn then walked back to their monastery.

Overcoming obstacles

Working in isolated monasteries in the foothills of the Himalayas proved extremely difficult. Some religious leaders keep their meditative procedures a closely guarded secret. Medical measuring devices require electrical power and wall outlets are not always available. In addition, trying to meditate while strangers attempt to measure your rectal temperature is not something most monks are happy to do.

To avoid these problems, Instructor in Psychology Sara Lazar, a Benson colleague, used functional magnetic resonance imaging to scan the brains of meditators at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The subjects were males, aged 22-45, who had practiced a form of advanced mediation called Kundalini daily for at least four years. In these experiments, the obstacles of cold and isolation were replaced by the difficulties of trying to meditate in a cramped, noisy machine. However, the results, published in the May 15, 2000, issue of the journal NeuroReport, turned out to be significant.

“Lazar found a marked decrease in blood flow to the entire brain,” Benson explains. “At the same time, certain areas of the brain became more active, specifically those that control attention and autonomic functions like blood pressure and metabolism. In short, she showed the value of using this method to record changes in the brain’s activity during meditation.”

The biggest obstruction in further studies, whether in India or Boston, has always been money. Research proceeded slowly and intermittently until February 2001, when Benson’s team received a $1.25 million grant from Loel Guinness, via the beer magnate’s Kalpa Foundation, established to study extraordinary human capacities.

The funds enabled researchers to bring three monks experienced in g Tum-mo to a Guinness estate in Normandy, France, last July. The monks then practiced for 100 days to reach their full meditative capacity. An eye infection sidelined one of the monks, but the other two proved able to dry frigid, wet sheets while wearing sensors that recorded changes in heat production and metabolism.

Although the team obtained valuable data, Benson concludes that “the room was not cold enough to do the tests properly.” His team will try again this coming winter with six monks. They will start practice in late summer and should be ready during the coldest part of winter.

Benson feels sure these attempts to understand advanced mediation will lead to better treatments for stress-related illnesses. “My hope,” he says, “is that self-care will stand equal with medical drugs, surgery, and other therapies that are now used to alleviate mental and physical suffering. Along with nutrition and exercise, mind/body approaches can be part of self-care practices that could save millions of dollars annually in medical costs.”

Chi Energy and Adrenal Fatigue

Chi Energy Training Controls Adrenal Fatigue The Silent Killer

Did you know your body’s endocrine system is the “Airport Control Tower” to balance your immune system?  When external and internal stressors become too much for the body, it goes into fight and flight, creating an inflammatory response that could possibly last 24×7. This inflammation is due to the mind sending signals that tell the body to react to a situation “real or imagined”.   It then releases powerful hormones that start the process of burning fuel and all internal systems are on alert.

In fact most people are so “insensitive”, to their own minds and bodies, that they feel this intense level of stress is normal.    You become numb to the intensity. Unmanaged stress can become chronic “adrenal fatigue”.  This can produce stages of illness and disease that are inevitable in the outcome.

It could possibly develop into cancers, tumors and autoimmune diseases. Your endocrine system is a powerful neurological transmitter of “hormones” that control the body’s immune system.  That’s why is so critical to your mind and body to reduce stress and enjoy a balanced endocrine system.

Chi and Invisibility

“Invisibility” is a concept that predates written language; even early hunters and gatherers knew the advantages of being “unseen” when tracking prey.  Camouflage techniques have improved throughout the centuries, and most recently, so have scientific breakthroughs regarding the possibility to achieve invisibility through technology.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, “invisible” is defined as: “incapable by nature of being seen; inaccessible to view.”

The ability to go unseen, to actually become “invisible”, is something many chi gung practitioners hope to achieve.  Like the “magic cloaks” of science fiction and fantasy lore, many naysayers outside and within the chi gung community will argue this to be impossible.  Although this article will not go into the specifics on how to perform an “invisibility” technique, (or for all the Trekkies out there, “cloaking” technique), this article will focus on the actual scientific rationale as to why this works via technology, and provide insights as to why this can also be done with chi.

Invisible Technology:

In an article published by Wired magazine, it was stated that: “the U.S. Army is getting closer to mastering man-made “meta-materials” that can bend light around an object.”

http://blog.wired.com/defense/2008/08/army-eyes-invis.html

According David Smith, a professor at Duke University: “A meta-material is a material with unique properties that derive from its physical structure, not its chemical make up.”  Smith’s findings suggest that, in order to actually manipulate light, the surface of the material being used (for example, the material in an invisibility cloak) must be much smaller than that of the wavelength of light being used.  “The advances in nanotechnology are making it easier to create ever-smaller structures that can manipulate ever-smaller wavelengths,” said Smith.

Students of the Chi Energy Heals School are finding, first-hand, the true nature of the physics behind chi, and how human beings actually interact with and [can] control the subatomic particles that build the Universe as the Scientific Community has recently come to know it.

Strings, Plank Length, and Chi:

As we delve deeper into the building blocks of the Universe, we find that the smallest particle, which cannot be broken down any further, is a “string”.

“String theory is a unified theory of the universe, postulating that fundamental ingredients of nature are not zero-dimensional point particles but tiny one-dimensional filaments called strings; string theory harmoniously unites quantum mechanics and general relatively, the previously known laws of the small and the large, that are otherwise incompatible.”-  Brian Greene, The Elegant Universe

According to string theorists, it is proposed that strings are the smallest forms of energy in the known Universe.  A string’s length is “about 10-33 centimeters,” Brian Greene The Elegant Universe.  This length is called “Plank length”, and is smaller than the subatomic particles that make-up the photons that, in turn, make visible light.

Please note: nanotechnology has yet to reach the subatomic sizes of plank length, however; practitioners Chi Energy can.

Chi is a form off electromagnetic energy.  Human beings produce bio-electromagnetic energy; said energy serves as a key component of the functioning of the body, even at the cellular level.  It only stands to reason that many of us are indeed sensitive to and can harness/cultivate more.

Students of the Chi Energy are given step-by-step instruction regarding how to become sensitive to as well as intuitive with the electromagnetic energy they produce as well as the ebb and flow of the electromagnetic energy in the Universe.  Yes, this is a tall order, however; with the assistance of dedicated Instructions as well as a thorough curriculum students of the Chi Energy Heals School are taught to think and feel at the subatomic level.

The possibilities are truly limited only by the individual’s mind.  Using chi to wrap the body in light-diffracting particles is something that is certainly conceivable and, given the proper training, certainly achievable.

We at the School of Chi Energy Heals have found that chi is best developed when a healthy mind and a healthy body work in unison.

Visual Chi Energy Floaties

Henri Bergson, the French Philosopher who won the 1928 Nobel Prize in Literature, is attributed as to have said: “The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.” Many students of the The School of Chi Energy Heals are experiencing a level of visual acuity never before experienced. These visual “side effects”, “floaties” [in the fore gaze] and wisp-like movements [from the peripherals] are typical side effects for anyone practicing gi gong activities, and even more so for those engaged in Chi Energy Heals training.

Although speaking metaphorically, Bergson’s genius was more accurate than the science of the 1920s could immediately prove. Amazingly complex, the human eye perceives much more than typically given credit and is the focus of this article. Not only will this article discuss the nature of what these intangible “floaties” are, but equally important, provide scientific fact (with accompanying references) demonstrating how it is possible for the eye to register said phenomena.

The anatomy of the human eye is anything but basic. Within the confines of a very small space (approximately 1 inch long, 1 inch deep and 1 inch wide), the human eye boasts of intricate machinations of about 15 working parts.

http://health.howstuffworks.com/eye1.htm

Deeper still, within these subsystems, specifically the retina, are individual photoreceptors that are responsible for sensing light and varying combinations of the visible spectrum and sensing movement. Men and women practicing chi gung, and more specifically, students of the Chi Energy Heals School, should direct their attention to three specific areas of interest: rods; cones; and the optic nerve.

Photoreceptors

Rods and cones are photoreceptors and reside in the retina of the human eye.

Whereas the typical human eye has approximately 120 millions rods, the same eye has only 6-7 million cones. The reason for this, e.g. the role and functionality between the rods and cones, as well as their geographic distribution, will become of particular interest to the active reader.

http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/vision/rodcone.html

Cones are responsible for detecting light at higher levels of brightness (lumens) and can differentiate color. They are typically broken down into three major subgroups: short wavelength sensitive cones (S-cones) responsible for interpreting “blues”; medium wavelength sensitive cones (M-cones), responsible for interpreting “greens”, and “long wavelength sensitive cones (L-cones), responsible for interpreting “reds”.

http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/vision/rodcone.html

http://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/EDDOCS/Wavelengths_for_Colors.html

Although there are significantly less cones than rods, with a ration of 1/20, cones are focused in the very center of the fovea, whereas rods reside in the actual peripherals of said area of the eye.

Rods, conversely, do not mediate color vision; nor do they have a high spatial acuity. Rods, however, provide a level of amplification that enables “single quantum detection”.

A photon, the smallest packet into which light can be broken into, is a quantum particle. The tiny particles that build the very Universe, are, in fact, termed: “quanta”. This is to say, that, the “floaties” we see, are the natural building blocks of the Universe. The human eye is sensitive to the degree that is able to register even a single photon packet of light energy. As our sensitivity grows, we interpret more of these of these quantum particles as “floaties”. In essence, we are realizing that we can, indeed, see “chi”.

[Articles, such as “Space-time and Chi Power”, “What is Chi?”, and “Electricity” provide detail and addition research and reference materials regarding quantum mechanics and how these accompanying subatomic particles correlate to chi.]

Furthermore, because rods are located along the peripherals of the fovea, as indicated by the graphic below, we can easily surmise why the human eye not only better detects motion via peripheral vision, but also, why we tend to see the movement of the aforementioned subatomic particles via the same vantage point.

There are approximately 50-60 million rods located along the outset of each fovea of the eye; each individual rod is capable of detecting a single quantum phenomena. It is no small wonder that humans engaged in chi building disciplines become aware of and experience this heightened state of vision.

The Optic Nerve

Popular neuroimaging techniques, such as the Electroencephalogram (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (meg) rely upon imaging devices that create pictures of the human brain. Each respective device is tuned to register electronic (EEG) and magnetic (meg) waves emitted by the nerve fibers within the human brain. [As an aside, the nervous system of the entire human body conducts electricity.]

The optic nerve within the human eye provides a direct feed of electric impulse/information from the eye to the brain, allowing the brain to receive and interpret the images of visual sensory information.

For men and women training with The School of Chi Energy Heals, especially those within the Instructor Years, a “moment of clarity” should be quickly approaching. Traditional chi building exercises result in levels of sensitivity to said bioelectric energy to varying degrees. Chi Energy Heals, as taught thru Sifu Jones’ methodology, deliberately engages the body’s nerve fibers to better harness and more efficiently utilize this same energy.

The deliberate build-up through life enhancing and health promoting exercises, all holistically integrated for a synergistic effect, result in heightened awareness and sensitivities to these quantum phenomena [chi]. With the nerve fibers of the entire body, including the optic fiber, operating with a higher throughput of electric current, it is no wonder that we can not only sense and feel chi energy, but, in keeping with the topic of this article, see it as well.

The French novelist Marcel Proust said: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in seeing with new eyes”. We at The School of Chi Energy Heals invite you to not only see with new eyes, but to join us in this voyage of discovery.

Chi & Quantum Entanglement

Chi & Quantum Entanglement

“When you look into the abyss, the abyss also looks into you,” Nietzsche.

Nietzsche’s aphorism has a profound truth that is now being investigated by the scientific community.  It also has important ramifications for those doing any type of chi development.

From a scientific viewpoint, the term “abyss” is interchangeable with that of an “experiment” or “system”; that which is being “observed”.

Recently, the scientific community has come to understand that the observer of an experiment/system of study is not impartial; the observer, in the act of observing, is actually part of the experiment and his/her expectations actually influence the outcome of the experiment.  [For a more detailed explanation of this phenomenon, see any book or web resource on the dual behavior of light waves/particles or theories in quantum mechanics].

With this understanding, we can paraphrase Nietzsche: When the scientist looks into a system, the system also looks into the scientist.

This interplay, a form of “quantum entanglement” (a term coined by Dean Radin), happens not only at the sub-atomic level, but bubbles-up into large-scale happenings of our material world.  For example, the tried-and-true practice of visualizing success, from high performance in sporting contests to job interviews to academic achievement, has shown to have favorable outcomes.  The act of desiring the outcome of a situation (system/experiment) actually influences the outcome of said events on some level; the goal, then, of a chi student, is to develop one’s own abilities to gain a greater sphere of influence in his/her life.

Which leads to a very important concept for an individual involved in chi development: the nature of the abyss.

As quantum mechanics has shown, everything is interrelated on [at the very least] a sub-atomic level.  With that being the case, any inquiry, investigation, or observation into a “system” results in that same system becoming directly involved with the observer.

The implications are both many as well as deep.

Psi related abilities, such as clairvoyance, ESP, telepathy, which were once upon a time viewed as an outsider looking in are now seen more along the lines of an outsider joining the observation; upon joining the observation, the individual with said psi capabilities has introduced him/herself to those involved and shared a discourse.  The sensitivity of those involved and the skill to which the chi practitioner uses his/her techniques determines the size of the footprint left behind.  This is all to say: When a chi practitioner performs telepathy, telepathy is performed unto the chi practitioner”.

Please do not gloss over this concept; think long and hard as to what this really means and more importantly, to where this may lead.

Psychic Abilities & Chi Energy

ESP and Chi Power Cultivation

The online version of the Encyclopedia Britannica defines extrasensory perception (ESP) as follows: Perception that involves awareness of information about something (such as a person or event) not gained through the senses and not deducible from previous experience.

ESP is often associated with paranormal/psychic abilities such as: telepathy (the ability to communicate via the mind/thought); clairvoyance and precognition (sensing other places, events, people and time); telekinesis/psychokenisis (the ability to move objects via the mind/thought) and many other “psi” related capabilities.

ESP and Science

20th century scientists are finding new evidence, through theories of Quantum Mechanics (the study of how the tiny particles which make up atoms behave), that ESP is a viable phenomenon.  Which is to say, although they are currently unable to “pinpoint” through scientific rigors exactly what is going on with ESP/psi related occurrences, they must admit that “something” is there.

Dean Radin, who has held appointments at Princeton University and Edinburgh University, has published several books based upon his own experiments that give rise to the scientific validity of ESP and psi abilities.

In The Entangled Mind, Radin offers the following regarding the concept of “interconnectedness” at the scientific level: “One of the most surprising discoveries of modern physics is that objects aren’t as separate as they may seem. When you drill down into the core of even the most solid-looking material, separateness dissolves.  These connections were predicted by quantum theory and were called “spooky action at a distance” by Albert Einstein.”

Furthermore, Radin writes [ The Entangled Mind]: “Scientists are now finding that there are ways in which the effects of microscopic entanglements “scale up” into our macroscopic world. Entangled connections between carefully prepared atomic-sized objects can persist over many miles. There are theoretical descriptions showing how tasks can be accomplished by entangled groups without the members of the group communicating with each other in any conventional way. Some [scientists] even propose that the entire universe is a single, self-entangled object….

When the fabric of reality is examined very closely, nothing resembling clockworks can be found. Instead, reality is woven from strange, “holistic” threads that aren’t located precisely in space or time. Tug on a dangling loose end from this fabric of reality, and the whole cloth twitches, instantly, throughout all space and time.”

Chi and Quantum Mechanics

Radin takes the theoretical leap and connects the dots between Eastern mysticism and current, Western physics.  “The idea of the universe as an interconnected whole is not new; for millennia it’s been one of the core assumptions of Eastern philosophies. What is new is that Western science is slowly beginning to realize that some elements of that ancient lore might be correct,” (The Entangled Mind).

Chi, as defined by Eastern mystics, is synonymous with that which Western scientists have called the Quantum Field.  The theories are markedly similar when compared side-by-side.  Each [Chinese Mysticism and Quantum Mechanics] speaks of an energy field made up of tiny particles that comprise everything, and move through everything.  Further giving rise to the feeling of “interconnectedness”.

It is no great wonder, then, that many people report belief in ESP related abilities and/or claim to have experienced these abilities themselves, on some level.

We at the School of Chi Energy Heals believe that with proper instruction and exercises, virtually anyone can be taught how to increase both their sensitivity to chi as well as magnify their chi [output].

It naturally follows that, as the student’s chi and sensitivity to chi grows, ESP related capabilities will naturally follows, and can be honed to the student’s desired results over a period of time.
