  1. Here is one thing that physicists don't think about much: The only means open to them to observe natural phenomena are their five senses. Why does mankind have those five senses (sight, feel, smell, touch, hearing)? Quite likely for survival, as most things which threaten our survival impacts one or more of them in one way or another. It seems quite likely that the vast majority of natural phenomena has little influence on mankind's survival, and so much of these phenomena are likely totally unknown to us. But that does not mean that this unknown phenomena does not affect some of the things which we can sense. The implication of this is that Science is not playing with a full deck: that there is no way they can come up with a unified theory of everything, no matter how many ad hoc variables they might add in "string theory" or in attempted explanation of their "big bang" theory.

    Keep your wits about you, or the option to collect them at a moment's notice.

    It has been nearly two years now since I sat through the ten day course. Due to congenital defective memory, I neither remember the details of what was done on each day, nor the content of all the Goenka talks we listened to at night after the final quiet sitting of the day. What I do remember is what I learned through the practice: 1) that there are many things thoughout our bodies which don't belong there, some seeming alive (in the sense that they are in motion), and others dormant or perhaps "calcified" (in the sense that they are not moving or vibrating}; 2) that when one focuses on one of them with attention with neither emotion nor judgement (which was described in the course as with an "equanimous mind"), it would in a short time dissolve and disappear, leaving apparently no trace; 3) this happened not only with the "lively" things, but also with those which seemed "dead"; 4) that new such things would after some time come to replace the old ones which had vanished; 5) but that repeated practice over several days would make the "density" of these things less, at least for the time being. I believe that Goenka mentioned these things in his talks as karma, and that the method gradually dissipated accumulated karma. Not really knowing what karma is, I cannot intelligently comment on this. But that something not good is there, and that equanimous observation of it dissipates it, I know from direct experience. If there is someone here that knows about this, I would love to hear what he or she knows. There is more to it than I have mentioned here, and I suspect it has much to do with this "karma". I say this with hesitation, because at this point I know nothing for sure about "karma", but I say it anyway because I do know that what I have described is real, and I would like to understand it.

    Thanks for the welcomes. Glad I did not generate a loss guys. If I were not I, and had had to put my "money" down, it would have been on 止圣先天老祖 .
  5. Eeman Circuits - Are you experienced?

    Internal stress induced by structural problems of the body (involving muscles, bones, tendons, nerves, etc.} causes increased pain and impedes the natural healing process. This internal stress is manifested by qi imbalance: one type of qi concentrated at one part of the body and its opposite concentrated at another. Eeeman's circuits relieve this stress by facilitating equalization of this imbalance. Although electrical conductors are somewhat related to qi conductors, the match is not exact. A couple simple examples: 1) silk works better than copper in conducting qi; 2) while for electrical conductors, the greater the diameter of the wire the better the conductor, this is not true for conductors of qi. One can make a quite efficient Eeman circuit by sewing silk thread onto a felt or cotton blanket. With reference to the illustration in NotVoid's introduction to this topic: the copper meshes under the head and fanny can be replaced by silk cloth, the wire can be replaced by silk thread sewed onto a cotton or felt mat and connected to handles covered with silk, and one additional piece of silk cloth may be placed under the heels to provide qi circulation between the feet, thus bypassing the requirement that the legs be crossed. This can all be made into a blanket with cloth handles which can easily be rolled up and transported (with no wires to break}. The silk thread can be quite fine without impairing the effectiveness of the Eeeman circuit.
  6. Old Grandfather

    Laozu here means "old grandfather" as in lao zu fu -- not the sage Laozi as in "old child". Was lead to The Tao Bums by Ixquick, searching Eeeman bio-circuits, and was tempted to comment -- hence registration. Interested in understanding what is, the better to be able to do... what should be done.
