straight lines to approximate curves. Nature uses curved
lines to approximate straight lines.
is man's attempt to quantify curved surfaces, areas and
in order to approximate the area under a curve, we use what
are called Reimann sums:
As you can
see, the areas of the rectangles are added up to approximate
the area under the curve from the beginning at X0 to the end
at X6. Each rectangle sticks out a little bit over the
curve, but makes up for it by being a little deficient on
the other side. If we make all the rectangles of equal width
and then make that width infinitely small, we can get an
almost exact approximation of this quantity.
nature does exactly the opposite. When nature needs
something straight, she approximates straightness with a
combination of curves. For example, to get the square wave
shown below, we can combine a whole bunch of sine waves:
As we add more
and more sine waves to the mix, the resulting graph becomes
almost exactly the square wave. But not quite. For as we
will soon see, anything that exists must be curved.
sine waves we can make any curve we want. This idea is used
in computer aided design and manufacturing. For example, if
a car manufacturer wants to make a car body, he needs to
know how it will be shaped. The entire surface of the car
body can be designed with a computer first and the bugs
worked out before the manufacturing process begins. In fact,
the design of any form can be accomplished by the
combination of sine waves of different frequencies and
nature use curved lines instead of straight lines? A
straight line seems much easier to understand and it sure is
easier to generate! A curved line requires a constant change
of direction so it is more complicated.
curved lines because of the fundamental property of
particles. It turns out that motion
must be curved, not
There are no perfectly straight lines in nature because
perfectly straight lines allow for instantaneous travel
between two points. A straight line means, absolutely no
stops or change of direction along the way. Something which
moves instantaneously can't exist, because there is no
persistence. Something that exists, that has mass, must take
some little bit of time to go from point A to point B. This
applies internally to the atom as well, since it is a
vibration. There is no such thing as an instantaneous
vibration! Therefore, all matter and energy must be
traveling along curved paths, at the microcosmic and
movement is only possible to a pure potential. In nature we
do not observe things moving from one place to the other
with no time lag. Even light has a measurable speed.
A curved line
means a continuous change of direction. There is a certain
time-lag that is required to negotiate the new change of
direction, which leads to persistence, and thus time. So we
could say that time itself is curved, not straight!
Everything in existence is curved, and is traveling in
spirals. Persistence, existence itself, is curved.
To go from B to A in a perfectly straight
line is a piece of cake. There are no stops anywhere along
the path, no decisions to make. The end is always in sight,
so in effect, one can 'be there' in no time at all! A
perfectly straight line acts just like a wormhole or a
portal, because the length of the line is irrelevant.
To go from B to A in a curved path, however,
there has to be a conscious decision to 'turn left' at every
single point along the way. At point B, the natural tendency
is to keep going to H, at point F, it is easier to keep
going in the same direction to L, and so on. To make the
curved line there must be a slight hesitation at every point
along it; in every moment, a new decision on which direction
to go in. This hesitation is what causes the persistence of
objects in nature, and time itself (Einstein showed
us that space itself curves slightly around physical matter).
We all know how easy it is to keep doing something once we
are into it, even if it is a bad habit, and how hard it is

Vibrations are waves

vibrations as waves.
What is a
wave? A wave can be thought of as resulting from rotation of
a point on a circle around the center of the circle:
This might seem silly, because all we have is a circle. But
a wave is just a measure of the height of the pulse:
As point C goes around the circle to D, the height of the
lines increase, then decrease:
From C to D is the first half of the wave pictured above. If
D travels back to C again, completing the circle, the entire
wave is generated.
So all waves can be modeled as a complete rotation, or
orbit, of a particle around in a circle.
The continued orbiting or oscillation of a particle creates
Consider the following curve:
Every point along this curve is on the circumference of some
circle. We might need several hundred circles of differing
radii in order to describe the figure above, but the
A curve in 3 dimensions is no different. Here is a picture
of an egg:

one end than the other and rotated it 180 degrees, you'd get
an egg shape. If you take a circle and rotate it 180
degrees you get a sphere:

All motion is

is oscillatory. All vibration is wave-like. Therefore
anything that exists is in rotational motion, and the path
it describes is curved.
We suppose the
aether to be composed of thought, the basic quanta of matter
and energy. A thought, we will say, is something internally
alive, for it proceeds directly from consciousness. A
thought is conscious, and can be considered to be a
The aether, in
this conception, is composed of the subtle energy of
thought, and is vibratory as well. The aether transmits
thought like the air transmits sound. Since each thought
creates a little bit of space for itself (otherwise it could
not exist), as consciousness continues to create, the
(There is no
scientific evidence for an aether, of course, whether subtle
or not. A scientist would say that we are reversing the
clock back over a century, before the Mickelson-Morely
experiment supposedly disproved the existence of an aether.
Until 1887, however, even serious scientists believed in its
existence as a transmitter of light. James Clerk Maxwell,
who extended and mathematically formulated Michael Faraday's
theories of electricity and magnetic lines of force,
envisioned electromagnetic radiation (electricity,
magnetism) traveling within a medium. Then Einstein
eliminated the need for an aether altogether in his Theory
of Relativity. Neither Maxwell or Einstein or any serious
scientist would agree on a so-called aether composed of
subtle energy, however. Call me ignorant or brilliant, your
choice, but I believe that the aether is a logical extension
of a system of thought that is based on the non-physical
nature of consciousness.)
A thought can
also be considered as a particle which generates a vibration
within the aether due to its internal motion. Therefore we
can think of a thought as having both the characteristics of
a wave and a particle. In other words, every time someone
thinks a thought, it "bumps up" against all of the other
thoughts in the aether and sends forth a vibration, just as
sound travels via molecules of air. The quanta themselves
vibrate, interacting with other quanta and creating a
background vibration, or OM, which may represent the
fundamental frequency(s) of the universe.
A thought is alive and conscious and sends out a
vibration in the form of a wave.
that the aether is of such a high frequency that it cannot
be measured. In the transmission of radio
signals, for example, the carrier wave is of much higher frequency than
the modulating signal (the signal that contains the
information), because it is much easier to transmit a signal
of higher frequency, and the signal will travel further. A
carrier wave of infinitely high frequency would not only
travel infinitely far, but would do so instantaneously and
with perfect ease. Such an infinitely high frequency would
potentially have tremendous power, yet be so subtle that
it's presence would be undetectable. In effect, it would be
a quantity which, becoming more and more refined, approached
a nebulous boundary between something which IS (a quantity) and something
which IS NOT (a quality). This pure potential would have no mass and
no physical existence. It would be infinitely sensitive, and capable of
instantaneously transmitting even the most infinitesimal
movement. The aether is the postulated medium
through which the Law of Vibration and the Law of Attraction
vibrational model, the aether is the combined thoughts of
every consciousness that has ever existed since the First
Thought. It is a medium so refined and so subtle that the
instruments of present day science cannot begin to measure
it. For all intents and purposes the aether is invisible,
yet it is so sensitive that it can infallibly transmit
vibrational signals from one end of the universe to the
other. These vibrational signals impinge upon our
consciousness in every moment.
Consciously Increasing Intuitive Power
is extremely sensitive to all subtle vibration in the
aether. When a conscious personality is open to receive, it
can instantaneously translate the vibrational input
impinging upon it. This process is called intuition.
Many great scientific and artistic breakthroughs have
resulted from inspiration or intuition from which the
intellect then devises a satisfactory explanation to fit in
with current theory.
In order to
increase one's intuitive powers, one must be open to
receive. First one must ask a clearly defined question.
Formulating the question orients one's vibration to the
question. And we know that a consistent pattern of
vibration sets up a vibrational envelope at the proper
bandwidth from which to receive similar vibrations. That's
what Jesus meant when He said, "Ask and ye shall receive.
Knock, and it shall be opened to you." Computer programmers
say, "Garbage in, garbage out." In other words, you only
receive the answer at your level of consciousness, which is
to say, at your level of vibration!
"Channeling" is the process
of directly receiving information from the
aether, or from non-corporeal personalities. In the
spirit/mind/body framework, the spiritual component
(consciousness) of individual human beings interface
directly with the aether. By calming the mind, relaxing the
body, becoming receptive and having a clearly
defined question at the forefront of your mind, you may
consciously receive information from the non-physical realm.
This information comes in the form of what I call 'thought
packets' that contain images, feelings, and data which then
must be translated by the receiver into language.
I have found
that the stronger is your eagerness to get an answer, the
stronger will be the response. The clarity of the is a
combination of three things:
of your signal, the clarity of your question, and your
ability to open and receive the answer. It's the latter
that most of us have trouble with. Working on the answer is
how I personally block my intuitive powers. I have always
felt the need to control my creative process, but in doing
so, I set up energy blockages which prevent the vibration of
the answer from impinging upon my conscious awareness. It's
a rather amusing situation: I am trying so hard to receive
the answer, the vibrations of which are being blocked by
my trying to receive the answer!
Nothing I am saying here can
be proven scientifically. Nothing I have said in any of the
essays can be scientifically proven either. The entire
subject of spirituality can easily be dismissed simply by
saying that it is subjective. And that is perfectly true. In order for free will to exist, and for
individual decisions and preferences to have any meaning,
the universe must be designed to respond to, and support
those preferences. The only way to validly prove anything is
to personally test it. Whether or not someone else gets
results with your methodology is utterly irrelevant. If
something works for you, then it's true for you!
developing your intuition is fun! And informative too.
