In the two previous posts, Two major blindspots in our view of the world revealed!, and The life-coherence principle: the forsaken invisible hand, I endeavoured to show that our universe is fractally self-organised and quantum coherent from the subatomic to the galactic scales. What is causing this new-found reawakening is an appreciation of the fact that our conventional mainstream views of the world did not incorporate the fourth phase of matter (plasma) into the universe proper, and which also did not incorporate the fourth phase of water (electrically structured water) into the water structures of our planet and the cells of its living inhabitants.
Given that we live in a plasma and electric universe through and through, with the ability of the electrons to interact with each other over scales many order of magnitudes from the cells of our bodies, to our organs, to our entire body, to collection of people, to the biosphere, and from our planet to the solar system and other galaxies in the universe, the possibility exists that the universe is also alive and conscious of itself. And given its fractal nature, I would not be surprised if each part of this now wholistic and connected universe can communicate with itself – that is the whole knows about its parts and the parts can know about the whole.
If this picture is accurate, then the implications for many of our spiritual and religious belief systems are enormous, and our vision of the world and our place in it are now due for a major upgrade. First and foremost, our image of who God is must change. If the Universe is all that is, then God cannot be some supra-natural entity outside of the Universe, but must be some natural supra-entity that encompasses the entire universe. If this is the case, then this would mean that every part of nature has a spark of divine energy within, and moreover has the ability to communicate with other elements of this divine entity. This gives new meaning to the term Namaste, where in Hindi it means, “I bow to the divine in you.”
And if this picture is true, and the divine spark is fully life-coherent, in which it self-organises into self-reproducing and nurturing entities, all energised by electromagnetic energy, transforming one form of energy into another to create hierarchies of living and conscious entities, then we as a human species may be one of many eyes and ears of the divine universe getting to know itself!
What I am beginning to realise is that this plasma electric universe opens up channels for the understanding of communication networks that may have been operating below the radar of Western science, but may have been appreciated and mastered by indigenous peoples and Eastern cultures. This revelation of another blind spot in our communication channels once again has the potential to change our view of the world, and gives substance and meaning to the concepts of intuition, feelings, meditation, and most important of all the prayer, which informs how we commune with the divine. And the conclusion I am being drawn to over and over again is that prayer and meditation and other cyclical ritual activities like singing and dancing are communication technologies that allow us to synchronise our minds, brain circuits, and yes, our heart circuits with every cell of our body, every sentient being on the planet, with the electromagnetic fields of the one and only electric plasma universe.
So praying to the divine may be conscious attempts on our part to realign our thoughts, words and deeds with the life-coherence principalities of the universe. When we acknowledge that we are out of sync and endeavour to be in right relationship and respectful of the real order of harmony and unity of the universe, then we tap into the energy stored in the universe to understand it and effect change beyond our wildest dreams.
Maybe praying to a Deist God who was separate from us may have been our stumbling block in preventing us all to get along. By communing with a Panentheist God (who is now Immanent and Transcendent in our newly rediscovered life-coherent worldview) and by acknowledging and mastering that effective communication and maintaining a harmony of relationships between our bodies, minds, and our relationship with each other and our environment, in the spirit of full-life coherence, maybe we can achieve the synergy and unity and wholesomeness our hearts have longed for and help create that most beautiful world our heart knows is possible.
Ironically, it was an atheist who has made a believer of me, and given what I have discovered as of late, his statement resonates with me and seems to ring true:
“If there is a God, it’s going to be a whole lot bigger and a whole lot more incomprehensible than anything that any theologian of any religion has ever proposed.” – Richard Dawkins
I will leave you now with three articles and three videos which you can peruse and study for further reaffirmation and enlightenment.
A key characteristic of human brain activity is coherent, spatially distributed oscillations forming behaviour-dependent brain networks. However, a fundamental principle underlying these networks remains unknown. Here we report that functional networks of the human brain are predicted by harmonic patterns, ubiquitous throughout nature, steered by the anatomy of the human cerebral cortex, the human connectome. We introduce a new technique extending the Fourier basis to the human connectome. In this new frequency-specific representation of cortical activity, that we call ‘connectome harmonics’, oscillatory networks of the human brain at rest match harmonic wave patterns of certain frequencies. We demonstrate a neural mechanism behind the self-organization of connectome harmonics with a continuous neural field model of excitatory–inhibitory interactions on the connectome. Remarkably, the critical relation between the neural field patterns and the delicate excitation–inhibition balance fits the neurophysiological changes observed during the loss and recovery of consciousness.
A discovery must be, by definition, at variance with existing knowledge.

Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.

The above quotes pertain to some of the investigators and concepts discussed in this report. New vistas in biology and medicine lie before us if we are willing to recognize our biases, blind spots, and unsolved problems. Science and medicine cannot progress when new ideas are rejected without thorough and appropriate investigation. Simply denying the existence of unfamiliar phenomena is a much easier path to follow, and is often the method of choice of the professional skeptics. As an example of taking the easy path, Oliver Heaviside and others replaced Maxwell’s original quaternions with vector algebra, and eliminated the potential fields as “arbitrary” and unnecessary. Faraday’s and Maxwell’s potentials were thought to be purely mathematical entities without physical significance, but this is not so in quantum physics, as was demonstrated by Aharonov and Bohm in 1959. By the end of the 1800’s the Maxwell equations had been reduced from the original 20 to the 4 we find in physics texts today. Deleting the potentials deprived physics, biology and medicine of important theoretical tools for nearly a century. The long-neglected potentials have important implications for biology and medicine…..

Of the many new scientific perspectives that emerged from the 20th century, one of the most profound is that the universe is wholly and enduringly interconnected and coherent.1-3 Complex living systems, including human beings, are composed of numerous dynamic, interconnected networks of biological structures and processes. Coherence implies order, structure, harmony, and alignment within and amongst systems—whether in atoms, organisms, social groups, planets, or galaxies. Thus, every whole has a relationship with and is a part of a greater whole, which is again part of something greater. In this context, nothing can be considered as separate, alone, or lacking relationships. One of the more surprising findings that has emerged from physics is quantum coherence, which has given rise to the prediction of nonlocality and instantaneous communication between subatomic particles separated by vast distances.1
Most people know what it feels like to be in harmonious state, the place where our hearts, minds and bodies are united in a feeling of wholeness. This state is often referred to as “the zone,” “flow,” “oneness,” etc. When we are in such states we typically feel connected not only to our deepest selves but to others, even to the earth itself. We call this state of internal and external connectedness “coherence.” This overview discusses how increased personal coherence can be achieved as people learn to more consistently self-regulate their emotions from a more intuitive, intelligent, and balanced inner reference and how this state is directly associated with increased intuition and improved health and cognitive functioning. It also describes how coherence is reflected in physiology and objectively measured. The discussion then expands to coherence in the context of families, workplaces, and communities. The article concludes with the perspective that being responsible for and increasing our personal coherence are not only reflected in improved personal health and happiness but also feed into and are reflected in a global field environment. It is postulated that as increasing numbers of people add coherent energy to the global field, it helps strengthen and stabilize mutually beneficial feedback loops among human beings and with the earth itself.
Science of the Heart

The human heart emits the strongest electromagnetic field in our body. This electromagnetic field envelops the entire body extending out in all directions, and it can be measured up to several feet outside of the body. Research from the Institute of HeartMath shows that this emotional information is encoded in this energetic field. HeartMath researchers have also seen that as we consciously focus on feeling a positive emotion – such as care, appreciation, compassion or love – it has a beneficial effect on our own health and well-being, and can have a positive affect on those around us.
Mysteries of the Heart

The HeartMath Institute (http://www.heartmath.org) shares fascinating understandings of the human heart as explored in more than 20 years of its research. The ‘Did You Know’ facts are lesser-known gems of information to enlighten curiosity on how your own thoughts and emotions are affecting yourself and others.
HMI Research Director, Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., says, “It’s important to take a pause and really consider what our emotions are contributing to our environment and to other people. Our research and its applications can help people create a positive emotion-based environment that has real effects on physiology.”
McCraty said that the true nature of human emotion is one of care and love. He said HeartMath’s and others’ research shows that by focusing on these core heart-felt emotions, it can enhance one’s connection with others, and that this connection extends far beyond the individual.
The Heart’s Intuitive Intelligence: A path to personal, social and global coherence
Published on Apr 22, 2013
The Spiritual Heart — is in a way a little like a smart phone, invisibly connecting us to a large network of information. It is through an unseen energy that the heart emits that humans are profoundly connected to all living things. The energy of the heart literally links us to each other. Every person’s heart contributes to a ‘collective field environment.’ This short video explains the importance of this connection and how we each add to this collective energy field. The energetic field of the heart even connects us with the earth itself.
The HeartMath Institute (http://www.heartmath.org) is helping provide a more comprehensive picture of this connection between all living things through a special science-based project called the Global Coherence Initiative (http:///www.heartmath.org/gci.) They hope to help explain the mysteries of this connection between people and the earth…and even the sun.
Scientists at the HeartMath Institute (HMI) have already conducted extensive research on the power of heart, the heart/brain connection, heart intelligence and practical intuition.
Whether personal relationships, social connections, or even the global community – we are all connected through a field of electromagnetic energy. Increasing individual awareness of what we bring to this field environment could be the key to creating a sustainable future, a future that we can be proud to have helped create.
