Subject: unit length, Dear Dan:
Your (note from dan: I commented but did not discover) discovery
that lateral and vertical angstrom measurements of twist
increments of DNA are in golden mean proportion (phi ratio) should become a
very important contribution to contemporary thinking about architectural
modules -- not only about the Parthanon, Renaissance theories of proportion
(Alberti, et cetera), and measures like the "ken" unit length in
traditional Japanese architecture, multiples of which set measurements for
tatami mat size, which in turn set the measure for post-and-beam structure.
Page 622 of volume 2 of THE MOON OF HOA BINH contains the following
entry (which was drawn from a 1977 journal entry in my personal journals):
"Application of the unit length for dimensioning in the
is not to be based upon multiples and sub-multiples of the 'standard' human
height, as has traditionally been the case in architectural theory, but
upon the architectonics of cortical modules in the human brain -- which
modules, I am confident, will eventually be demonstrated dimensionally
related to the wave lengths of DNA-generated intra-neuronal
acoustically-modified gravity waves. Since these wave lengths are
immunological signifiers, studies of architectural dimensioning will be
inseparable from research on human immune system function. Growing the
generative semiotic of the design system as philosophy and
meta-anthropology IS enhancement of immune competency through building for
collective psychological transparency (as F.L. Wright understood so deeply
on a metaphysical level). There are architects and then there are
ARCHITECTS! The forms we live in a through metaphorically embody and
directly condition states of identity: the essence of immunology. This is
what I call applied research in environmental psychophysiology. Were the
ancients into this in a way we have no present knowledge of? Is this the
essential meaning behind yantra and mantra? Was architectural and
geomantic module therapeutics in ancient immunological medicine? Does
various dimensioning in architectural space articulation beat against or
resonate with modular function in human cortex? Can non-physiologically
adapted dimensioning cause a loss of immune competency? If so, just
imagine what current building practices are doing to human health.
Consider the fact that in Japan personal space became Western at the same
time as did the architectural space at the same time the society became
flooded with pornography. Emotional connection between people is
influenced by a multitude of referential and environmental factors."
My strong intuition is that the phi ratio proportions of DNA

As explained to me by Professor John Hubbard, PhD Univ Buffalo Medical School in Pathology and Microscopy.. that the stability of the central non- linear hydrogen bond spark gap zipper to the DNA helix, in many ways explained the quantum mechanics of aging. Namely, that the wave geometry of this bond determined the success and accuracy of base pair matching. So in effect, the determinant of replication success.. not making mistakes in coding up the next protein, was limited by the wave fit geometry in this bond center. He suggested cell deterioration associated with aging, at one level, correlated with the decay of this central bond. If the non-linear hydrogen bond tears from it's RECURSION geometry (based on PHI) THEN DNA begins to make more replication mistakes. This is because the ability of the field effect reaching out from the bond center, to attract the right protein/codon fit is limited by the geometry of the bond itself. A spark gap is q square wave, which by definition could have an infinite series of contained harmonics. Yet we know, that no harmonic series can heterodyne or beat with itself infinitely, unless the ratio of the wave lengths are Golden Mean. (The only completly non-destructive wave interference geometric). If we look at the harmonic content of this bond then as being a GOLDEN RATIO (rectangle as depicted in the center of DNA rung above), then it's harmonics become a log function of PHI / The Golden Mean Ratio. In this case then, DNA's central rung as a wave function, (zipper/linear accelerator/superluminal? access to "spirit"? see /superDNA/superDNA.html) becomes an adder and multiplier of both wave length AND WAVE VELOCITY heterodynes.. according to this chart ( a top down view:)
The main point is that 1.618 is also the ratio of the DNA structure and is the only ratio that allows complete information or geometry to cascade down the harmonic series without destructive interference (acheiving perfect fractal "implosive' data/wave compression) - spin path to zero point.
With the discovery of recombinant DNA biotechnology, humanity made off with Mother Nature's scissors. Unfortunately we know less than She. Editing the code of life with incomplete knowledge of meaning is like an electrician inside a supercomputer hacking out pieces assumed to be useless in order to make a "better" machine.
Specifically, genetic engineers are currently redesigning plants, animals, and people ostensibly for herbicide resistance, and disease immunity. It is assumed that the preponderance of "junk" DNA that intervenes between coding regions is inefficient, useless and could be removed for greater stream- lining. In actuality these spans serve multiple biological functions (cancer prevention, gene induction) and should be left in place within the genome.
Eukaryotic organisms (those with a double DNA library) have small sequences of DNA able to remove themselves and reinsert elsewhere in the genome. These "jumping genes" are usually latent and immobile, but under stress, become active. If they reinsert into a coding region of the genome they can disrupt a gene's biological function causing a mutation and potentially cancer. Fortunately, the genome of eukaryotic organisms is characterized by vast stretches of non-coding "junk DNA". If a jumping gene becomes active it is more likely to reinsert somewhere without causing harm. If genetic engineers attenuate non-coding regions, they may increase the likelihood of "jumping gene"-induced cancer.
Further, intervening sequences (introns) can be necessary for effective gene induction. For DNA to be converted to RNA from a coding sequence (gene), an upstream promoter must be induced. In some instances the DNA-binding protein required to turn on the gene must bind to the DNA in two places at once separated at times by hundreds of intervening base pairs (rungs of the ladder). DNA achieves this by bending the intron to accomadate dual binding by the DNA-binding protein. In this case, removal of the required intervening sequence would destoy proper gene induction.
In addition to the molecular necessity of introns for genetic function, there is also a less immediately tangible requirement for non-coding DNA stretches for biological health. It has been hypothesized that DNA serves as an antennae for electromagnetic capacitance. If the genome has been fragmented to such a degree that it can no longer vibrate with the long wave within which other waveforms nest, those waveforms (memories) will be lost. The tingle of life transmitted through healthy, coherent DNA becomes absent. Humans feeding upon chickens and grains adulterated through genetic engineering may soon find themselves feeling devoid of the charge gleaned from organisms whose DNA was able to infuse their tissues with the electromagnetic charge known as life force. With rampant cases of chronic fatique syndrome in adults, and attention deficit disorder in children, one may infer that our cellular batteries are being insufficiently charged.

"In every case, they found that noncoding
regions followed the Zipf relation more closely than did coding
regions, suggesting that junk DNA follows the structure of languages.
'We didn't expect the coding DNA to obey Zipf," Stanley notes.

structured system with built-in redundancies A few mumbled words
or scattered typos usually do not render a sentence incomprehensible.
In fact, the workers tested this notion of repetition by applying
a second analysis, this time from information theorist Claude
E Shanon who in the 1950s quantified
redundancies in languages. They found that junk DNA contains three to four times the redundancies of coding segments. Because of the statistical nature of the results, the researchers admit their findings are unlikely to help biologists identify functional aspects of junk DNA. Rather the work may indicate something about efficient information storage. "There has to be some sort of hierarchial arrangement of the information to allow one to use it in an efficient fashion and to have some adaptability and flexibility,' Goldberger observes."

So what do we do now, knowing that the future of our genepool may depend on NOT trapping the field effect around our genes, in the fractionating scissors of our biolabs. It is probably true that the long wave magnetics stored in old growth seeds genes, may be the only sustainable source for bliss for our grandchildren. This would sound merely like another new age romance novel, excdept for one thing. THE MECHANISM IS HERE DESCRIBED HOW TO MEASURE the life force of DNA. (Spectral contained harmonics space themselves in non linear phi progressions, in ALL bandwidths, as life force is acheived.)
It is about time we assigned freedom and dignity to the enlivening worm, whose replication success IS us. The significance of people is that we are a container to enable DNA's way of acheiving replication. This means that we as people are therefore only sustainable as a race, to the extent WE GIVE OUR GENES THEMSELVES FREEDOM TO LEARN SELF DIRECTION!
THIS MEANS THAT IF DNA IS NOT GIVEN A MEANS TO EXPRESS WILL, IT WILL LOSE THE ABILITY TO HAVE WILL! (And then there will be only chaos instead a "Willed Mutation of the Species").
To set our DNA free, means to respect it's ability to have will. This means recognizing the physics that happens when the worm develops an eyeball (sufi heart with wings bird tribe from snake root..coatel) at the squirtgun business end: The Magnetic X.

"Yes, for all these years, we have been living with fractal arteries, not far from fractal river systems, draining fractal mountainscapes under fractal clouds, toward fractal coastlines."
M. Schroeder (Iannaccone 249)
A snowflake in Vermont, the coastline of Italy, the Nile River: all of these share a characteristic that is very common in nature(Iannaccone 5). They all have geometric complexity(Iannaccone 5). In each of these fractal objects self-similarity exist(Iannaccone 5). "Self-similarity implies that looking at one part of the object offers the same information as looking at another part of the object"(Iannaccone 5). In biological systems fractal geometry abounds in many was comparable to that seen in physical systems. Self-similarity appears to be a property of the healthy function of the human cardiovascular system(Innaccone 250). This self-similarity appears at both the microscopic and macroscopic levels of observation(Iannaccone 250).
Fractal Geometry of the Heart
A number of cardiopulmonary structures have a fractal-like appearance(Iannaccone 251).
Examples of Fractals in Cardiovascular Physiology(Iannaccone 251).
A. Vascular: arterial and venous tress
C. Electrical: His-Purkinje network
D. Connective tissue: chordae tendineae; aortic valve leaflets
II. Dynamical (1/f spectra)
A. Regulation of healthy heartbeat fluctuations
B. Regulation of healthy beat-to-beat blood pressure fluctuations
Examples of self-similar architectures include the arterial and venous trees and the branching of certain cardiac muscle bundles, as well as the ramifying tracheo-bronchial tree and the His-Purkinje network(Iannaccone 251).

Image 2 The pectinate muscle of the canine artium shows a complex branching pattern.(Adapted from Goldberg, A.L., and West, B.J., Yale J, Biol. Med., 60, 421, 1987.)
The His-Purkinje network provides a highly efficient mechanism for rapidly distributing the electrical impulse(Iannaccone 251).
Image 3 Schematic diagram of the His-Purkinje network, a tree-like structure which rapidly transmits the electrical impulses form the atria to the ventricles.(Adapted form Goldberger, A.L., Bhargava, V., West, B.J., and Mandell, A.J., Biophys. J., 48, 525, 1985.)
All the self-similar cardiopulmonary architecture serves a common physiologic function: rapid and efficient transport over a complex, spatially distributed system(Iannaccone 251). In the case of the electrical conduction system, the quality being transported is the electrical stimulus that regulates the timing of cardiac contraction(Iannaccone 251). In the case of the vasculature, fractal branching provide a rich network for distribution of oxygen and nutrients and for the collection of carbon dioxide and other waste products of metabolism(Iannaccone 251). The fractal tracheo-bronchial tree provides an enormous surface area for exchange of gases(Iannaccone 251). The branching pattern of certain muscle bundles within the heart is also fractal-like(Iannaccone 251). The overall organization of muscle tissue can be viewed as a fractal hierarchy of bundles within bundles within bundles.
HUMAN HEARTBEAT DYNAMICS
An aspect of the fractal concept was the recognition that it could be applied not just to irregular geometric forms that lack a characteristic length scale, but also to complex processes that lack a single scale of time(Iannaccone 251). Fractal process generate fluctuations on multiple time scales, such variations are self similar(Iannaccone 251). The self-similarity of the fractal process can be seen by plotting the time series in question at different "magnifications"(Iannaccone 252).
Figure 5 The normal heartbeat fluctuates in an apparently irregular fashion, these fluctuations, when examines at different temporal resolutions, show a similar type of "rough" surface or landscape.(Adapted from Goldberger, A.L., Rigney D. R., and West, B.J., Sci. Am., 262, 42, 1990.)
Figure 5 show the time series of the heartbeat from a healthy person plotted on three different scales(Iannaccone 252). All three graphs show that the normal heartbeat has an irregular appearance. The difference, however, on each time scale is not noticeable. "The roughness of the "time-scape" (analogous to a fractal landscape) appears to have a self-similar property(Iannaccone 252). The normal activity of the heart has been describes as "regular sinus rythm," but the intervals normally fluctuate in a complex sporadic manner(Iannaccone 252).
The consecpt of fractls may be useful in understanding spatial and temporal "structure" of the human heart. Fractal analysis can be used to examine time serices of the heart. Studying the different fractal structure of time series it may be possible to identify at-risk patients.

TROUBLE IN THE GARDEN
Wall Street investors lost confidence in agricultural
biotechnology during 1999.[1,2,3] Agricultural biotechnology is
by no means dead, but investors drove down stock prices of ag
biotech companies during 1999 in a stunning reversal for the
industry. The WALL STREET JOURNAL said Jan. 7, 2000, "With the
controversy over genetically modified foods spreading across the
globe and taking a toll on the stocks of companies with
agricultural-biotechnology businesses, it's hard to see those
companies as a good investment, even in the long term."
Hardest hit was Monsanto, the St. Louis chemical giant that
spent 5 years and billions of dollars morphing itself into a
"life sciences" company, betting its future on biotechnology in
pharmaceutical drugs and agricultural crops. As the WALL STREET
JOURNAL wrote December 21, 1999, "Billions of dollars later, that
concept of a unified 'life sciences' company -- using technology
to improve both medicines and foods -- has become an affliction
itself for Monsanto. The crop-biotechnology half of the program
has grown so controversial that Monsanto has agreed to a deal
that is likely not only to push biotech to the back burner, but
also to cost Monsanto its independence. And investors are
Monsanto agreed late in 1999 to merge with Pharmacia &
Inc. and the combined company will be run not from St. Louis but
from Pharmacia headquarters in Peapack, New Jersey. Monsanto's ag
biotech business will be spun off into a separate company and as
much as 19.9% of it will be sold.
Two other leaders in ag biotech, the Swiss pharmaceutical giant
Novartis AG, and the Anglo-Swiss drug firm AstroZeneca PLC,
announced during 1999 that they will combine their ag biotech
divisions into one and sell it off, "effectively washing their
hands of crop biotechnology," the WALL STREET JOURNAL said.
Thus by the end of 1999, ag biotech companies found themselves
trouble, worldwide, for the first time. Here is a short list of
** A lawsuit against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
forced the release of government documents showing that FDA
scientists had expressed grave doubts about the safety of
genetically modified foods even as the agency was publicly
declaring such foods "substantially equivalent" to traditional
crops. It seems clear from these documents that the scientific
integrity of the U.S. regulatory system has been compromised for
political purposes, to provide a "fast track" for the rapid,
large-scale introduction of genetically modified foods.
** The insurance industry has consistently refused to write
policies covering liability for harm caused by genetically
modified organisms. Steven Suppan, research director at the
Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) in Minneapolis,
said last June, "It is worth asking what kind of regulatory
system approves for commercialization a technology whose risks
are so undetermined that the products developed from the
technology have not been insur- ed? An intuitive response is that
the U.S. rejection of liability suggests that U.S. agribusiness
and the U.S. government have less confidence than is proclaimed
publicly in the safety of the products approved and in the
integrity of the product review process," Dr. Suppan said.
** A growing body of literature has begun to show that
genetically modified crops are creating new kinds of
environmental problems for farmers, and that genetically modified
crops are exacerbating already-severe economic problems on
** Europeans and others overseas have continued to insist that
the safety of genetically modified foods has not been
sufficiently documented and that import of such foods must be
prohibited, or they must be labeled. The doubts expressed by FDA
scientists, and the growing list of economic and environmental
problems are likely to stiffen European resistance to
genetically-modified seeds, crops, and foods.
** It became apparent in 1999 that the public rationale for
promoting genetically modified foods -- that such foods would
"feed the world" -- was based on wishful thinking, not economics.
It is now clear that U.S. genetically modified crops are too
expensive to "feed the world."
** The rationale for refusing to label genetically modified
came unraveled in 1999 as biotechnology companies began to
announce new crops with special traits (rice with increased
vitamin A, for example). For years, biotech companies, the U.S.
Department of Agriculture (USDA), U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA), and FDA have argued that labeling genetically
modified foods was impossible because it would require food
companies to segregate genetically modified crops from
conventional crops and it simply couldn't be done. All the crops
were mixed together in the grain elevator, so labeling would be
impossible, they said.
This silly and disingenuous argument evaporated in 1999. As
as biotech firms announced specialty foods created by genetic
engineering, the labeling problem miraculously disappeared.
Labeling is suddenly easy -- indeed, required -- because
consumer's can't be expected to pay premium prices for specialty
foods if those foods aren't clearly identifiable on the grocery
Polls have shown that more than 80% of American consumers want
genetically modified foods labeled as such. Now that labeling is
acknowledged as feasible, will the biotech industry, USDA, EPA,
and FDA bend to the public will and start labeling ALL
genetically modified foods? Not on your life. Government and
industry argue with one voice that labeling is not necessary
because genetically modified foods are "substantially equivalent"
to the conventional foods they have replaced. They even say
labeling would be "misleading" because it would imply that there
are differences between biotech foods and conventional foods.
Federal regulations governing biotech foods are founded on
premise that there are no "material differences" between
genetically modified crops and conventional crops. This argument,
it turns out, was thoroughly discredited by FDA scientists before
the regulations were issued.
The FDA spent 1989-1992 developing regulations governing
genetically modified foods for humans and feed for animals. This
was back when President Bush and Vice-President Quayle were
advocating "regulatory relief" for industry.
FDA's rules -- which were announced by Mr. Quayle in 1992 --
allow a biotech company like Monsanto or DuPont to decide for
itself whether its food products are "generally recognized as
safe" (GRAS). If a company decides that its new genetically
modified corn or soybean or potato or wheat is "generally
recognized as safe" then no safety testing is required before the
products are introduced into the food supply. FDA said these
rules -- like all their rules -- are based on "sound science."
However, during 1999 a lawsuit filed by the Alliance for
Bio-Integrity in Fairfield, Iowa, forced the FDA to release some
44,000 pages of internal documents for the first time. Among
them was a series of memos from FDA scientists commenting on the
FDA's proposed "substantially equivalent" policy for biotech
A key issue is whether "pleiotropic effects" will
occur when new
genes are inserted into plants to give the plants desirable new
traits. Pleiotropy means that more than one change occurs in a
plant as a result of the new gene. For example, a gene that
allows a plant to grow better under drought conditions might also
make the entire plant grow smaller. The smaller size would be an
unexpected "pleiotropic" effect.
FDA regulations assume that pleiotropic effects will not occur
when new genes are inserted into conventional foods such as corn
or potatoes or wheat or soybeans. Therefore, FDA says,
genetically modified crops are "substantially equivalent" to
Internal memos make it abundantly clear that FDA's scientific
staff believes pleiotropic effects will occur when new genes are
inserted into food crops. [In the following quotations, words
inside square brackets have been added for clarity but words
inside normal parentheses were in the original memos.--P.M.]
Commenting on the FDA's proposed biotech regulations in early
1992, Louis Pribyl, an FDA microbiologist, wrote March 6, 1992,
"It reads very pro-industry, especially in the area of unintended
effects.... This is industry's pet idea, namely that there are no
unintended effects that will raise the FDA's level of concern.
But time and time again, there is no data to backup their
contention, while the scientific literature does contain many
examples of naturally occurring pleiotropic effects. When the
introduction of genes into [a] plant's genome randomly occurs, as
is the case with the current [genetic modification] technology
(but not traditional breeding), it seems apparent that many
pleiotropic effects will occur," Dr. Pribyl wrote. "Many of these
effects might not be seen by the breeder [meaning Monsanto or
DuPont or other biotech firm] because of the more or less similar
growing conditions in the limited trials that are performed.
Until more of these experimental plants have a wider
environmental distribution, it would be premature for FDA to
summarily dismiss pleiotropy as is done here," Dr. Pribyl wrote.
On the same subject, a memo from the Division of Contaminants
Chemistry within FDA's Division of Food Chemistry and Technology
said November 1, 1991, "Pleiotropic effects occur in genetically
engineered plants... at frequencies up to 30%. Most of these
effects can be managed by the subsequent breeding and selection
procedures. Nevertheless, some undesirable effects such as
increased levels of known naturally occurring toxicants,
appearance of new, not previously identified toxicants, increased
capability of concentrating toxic substances from the environment
(e.g., pesticides or heavy metals), and undesirable alterations
in the levels of nutrients may escape breeders' attention unless
genetically engineered plants are evaluated specifically for
these changes. Such evaluations should be performed on a
case-by-case basis, i.e., every transformant should be evaluated
before it enters the marketplace."
Instead of heeding the concerns of its scientific staff, FDA
issued biotech food rules that assume no pleiotropic effects will
occur, therefore no safety testing is required. All biotech foods
are assumed to be safe. The stage was thus set for confidence in
biotech foods to plummet as soon as word leaked out that the
scientific underpinnings of the regulatory system had been

The human DNA is a biological Internet and superior in many aspects to
the artificial one. The latest Russian scientific research directly or
indirectly explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition,
spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self healing, affirmation
techniques, unusual light-auras around people (namely spiritual
masters), mind's influence on weather-patterns and much more. In
addition, there is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which
DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies WITHOUT
cutting out and replacing single genes.
Only 10% of our DNA is being used for building proteins. It is this
subset of DNA that is of interest to western researchers and is being
examined and categorized. The other 90% are considered "junk DNA". The
Russian researchers, however, convinced that nature was not dumb,
linguists and geneticists in a venture to explore those 90%
DNA". Their results, findings and conclusions are simply revolutionary!
According to them, our DNA is not only responsible for the construction
of our body, but also serves as data storage and in communication. The
Russian linguists found that the genetic code, especially in the
apparently useless 90%, follows the same rules as all our human
languages. To this end they compared the rules of syntax (the way in
which words are put together to form phrases and sentences), semantics
(the study of meaning in language forms) and the basic rules of
They found that the alkalines of our DNA follow a regular grammar
have set rules just like our languages. So human languages
appear coincidentally but are a reflection of our inherent DNA.
The Russian biophysici stand molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev and his
colleagues also explored the vibrational behaviour of the DNA. [For the
sake of brevity I will give only a summary here. For further
please refer to the appendix at the end of this article.] The
line was: "Living chromosomes function just like solitonic-holographic
computers using the endogenous DNA laser radiation." This means that
they managed for example to modulate certain frequency patterns onto a
laser ray and with it influenced the DNA frequency and thus the genetic
information itself. Since the basic structure of DNA-alkaline pairs and
of language (as explained earlier) are of the same structure, no DNA
decoding is necessary. One can simply use words and sentences of the
human language! This, too, was experimentally proven! Living DNA
substance (in living tissue, not in vitro) will always react to
language-modulated laser rays and even to radio waves, if the proper
frequencies are being used. This finally and scientifically explains
affirmations, autogenous training, hypnosis and the like can
strong effects on humans and their bodies. It is entirely normal and
natural for our DNA to react to language. While western researchers cut
single genes from the DNA strands and insert them elsewhere, the
Russians enthusiastically worked on devices that can influence the
cellular metabolism through suitable modulated radio and light
frequencies and thus repair genetic defects.
Garjajev's research group succeeded in proving that with this method
chromosomes damaged by x-rays for example can be repaired. They even
captured information patterns of a particular DNA and transmitted it
onto another, thus reprogramming cells to another genome. So they
successfully transformed, for example, frog embryos to salamander
embryos simply by transmitting the DNA information patterns! This way
the entire information was transmitted without any of the side effects
or disharmonies encountered when cutting out and re-introducing single
genes from the DNA. This represents an unbelievable, world-transforming
revolution and sensation! All this by simply applying vibration and
language instead of the archaic cutting-out procedure! This experiment
points to the immense power of wave genetics, which obviously has a
greater influence on the formation of organisms than the biochemical
processes of alkaline sequences. Esoteric and spiritual teachers have
known for ages that our body is programmable by language, words and
thought. This has now been scientifically proven and explained. Of
course the frequency has to be correct. And this is why not everybody
equally successful or can do it with always the same strength.
individual person must work on the inner processes and maturity in
to establish a conscious communication with the DNA. The Russian
researchers work on a method that is not dependent on these factors but
will ALWAYS work, provided one uses the correct frequency.
But the higher developed an individual's consciousness is, the less
is there for any type of device! One can achieve these results
oneself, and science will finally stop to laugh at such ideas and will
confirm and explain the results. And it doesn't end there. The Russian
scientists also found out that our DNA can cause disturbing patterns in
the vacuum, thus producing magnetized wormholes! Wormholes are the
microscopic equivalents of the so-called Einstein-Rosen bridges in the
vicinity of black holes (left by burned-out stars). These are tunnel
connections between entirely different areas in the universe through
which information can be transmitted outside of space and time. The DNA
attracts these bits of information and passes them on to our
consciousness. This process of hypercommunication is most effective in
state of relaxation. Stress, worries or a hyperactive intellect
successful hypercommunication or the information will be totally
distorted and useless. In nature hypercommunication has been
successfully applied for millions of years. The organized flow of life
in insect states proves this dramatically.
Modern man knows it only on a much more subtle level, as "intuition".
But we, too, can regain full use of it. An example from Nature: When a
queen ant is spatially separated from her colony, building still
continues fervently and according to plan. If the queen is killed,
however, all work in the colony stops. No ant knows what to do.
Apparently the queen sends the "building plans" also from far away via
the group consciousness of her subjects. She can be as far away as she
wants, as long as she is alive. In man hypercommunication is most often
encountered when one suddenly gains access to information that is
outside one's knowledge base. Such hypercommunication is then
experienced as inspiration or intuition. The Italian composer Giuseppe
Tartini for instance dreamt one night that a devil sat at his bedside
playing the violin. The next morning Tartini was able to note down the
piece exactly from memory, he called it the Devil's Trill Sonata. For
years, a 42-year old male nurse dreamt of a situation in which he was
hooked up to a kind of knowledge CD-ROM. Verifiable knowledge from all
imaginable fields was then transmitted to him that he was able to
in the morning. There was such a flood of information that
it seemed a
whole encyclopaedia was transmitted at night. The majority of facts
outside his personal knowledge base and reached technical details
which he knew absolutely nothing.
When hypercommunication occurs, one can observe in the DNA as well as
the human being special phenomena. The Russian scientists irradiated
samples with laser light. On screen a typical wave pattern
When they removed the DNA sample, the wave pattern did not disappear,
remained. Many control experiments showed that the pattern
from the removed sample, whose energy field apparently remained by
itself. This effect is now called phantom DNA effect. It is surmised
that energy from outside of space and time still flows through the
activated wormholes after the DNA was removed. The side effect
encountered most often in hypercommunication also in human beings are
inexplicable electromagnetic fields in the vicinity of the persons
concerned. Electronic devices like CD players and the like can be
irritated and cease to function for hours. When the electromagnetic
field slowly dissipates, the devices function normally again. Many
healers and psychics know this effect from their work. The better the
atmosphere and the energy, the more frustrating it is that the
device stops functioning and recording exactly at that moment.
repeated switching on and off after the session does not restore
function yet, but next morning all is back to normal. Perhaps this is
reassuring to read for many, as it has nothing to do with them being
technically inept, it means they are good at hypercommunication.
In their book Vernetzte Intelligenz (Networked Intelligence), Grazyna
Gosar and Franz Bludorf explain these connections precisely and
The authors also quote sources presuming that in earlier times
had been, just like the animals, very strongly connected to the group
consciousness and acted as a group. To develop and experience
individuality we humans however had to forget hypercommunication almost
completely. Now that we are fairly stable in our individual
consciousness, we can create a new form of group consciousness, namely
one, in which we attain access to all information via our DNA, without
being forced or remotely controlled about what to do with that
information. We now know that just as on the internet our DNA can feed
its proper data into the network, can call up data from the network and
can establish contact with other participants in the network. Remote
healing, telepathy or "remote sensing" about the state of relatives
can thus be explained. Some animals know also from afar when
owners plan to return home. That can be freshly interpreted and
explained via the concepts of group consciousness and
Any collective consciousness cannot be sensibly used over any period of
time without a distinctive individuality. Otherwise we would revert to
primitive herd instinct that is easily manipulated. Hypercommunication
in the new millennium means something quite different:
Researchers think that if humans with full individuality would regain
group consciousness, they would have a god-like power to create, alter
and shape things on Earth! [I am overjoyed. Finally orders from the
Universe are scientifically explained!!!] AND humanity is collectively
moving toward such a group consciousness of the new kind. Fifty percent
of today's children will be problem children as soon as the go to
school. The system lumps everyone together and demands adjustment. But
the individuality of today's children is so strong that that they
this adjustment and giving up their idiosyncrasies in the most
ways. At the same time more and more clairvoyant children are born [see
the book Chinas Indigo Children by Paul Dong or the chapter about
Indigos in my book Nutze die taeglichen Wunder (Make Use of the Daily
Wonders)]. Something in those children is striving more and more
the group consciousness of the new kind, and it will no longer
suppressed. As a rule, weather for example is rather difficult to
influence by a single individual. But it may be influenced by a group
consciousness (nothing new to some tribes doing it in their rain
dances). Weather is strongly influenced by Earth resonance frequencies,
the so-called Schumann frequencies. But those same frequencies are also
produced in our brains, and when many people synchronise their
or individuals (spiritual masters, for instance) focus their
a laser-like fashion, then it is scientifically speaking not
surprising if they can thus influence weather.
Researchers in group consciousness have formulated the theory of Type I
civilisations. A humanity that developed a group consciousness of the
new kind would have neither environmental problems nor scarcity of
energy. For if it were to use its mental power as a unified
civilisation, it would have control of the energies of its home planet
as a natural consequence. And that includes all natural catastrophes!!!
A theoretical Type II civilisation would even be able to control all
energies of their home galaxy. In my book Nutze die taeglichen Wunder I
have described an example of this: Whenever a great many people focus
their attention or consciousness on something similar like Christmas
time, football world championship or the funeral of Lady Diana in
England then certain random number generators in computers start to
deliver ordered numbers instead of the random ones. An ordered group
consciousness creates order in its whole surroundings!!!
When a great number of people get together very closely, potentials of
violence also dissolve. It looks as if here, too, a kind of
consciousness of all humanity is created. At the Love Parade,
example, where every year about one million of young people congregate,
there has never been any brutal riots as they occur for instance at
sports events. The name of the event alone is not seen as the cause
here. The result of an analysis indicated rather that the number of
people was TOO GREAT to allow a tipping over to violence. To come back
to the DNA: It apparently is also an organic superconductor that can
work at normal body temperature. Artificial superconductors require
extremely low temperatures of between 200 and 140°C to function. As one
recently learned, all superconductors are able to store light and thus
information. This is a further explanation of how the DNA can store
information. There is another phenomenon linked to DNA and wormholes.
Normally, these supersmall wormholes are highly unstable and are
maintained only for the tiniest fractions of a second. Under certain
conditions (read about it in the Fosar/Bludorf book above) stable
wormholes can organise themselves which then form distinctive vacuum
domains in which for example gravity can transform into electricity.
Vacuum domains are self-radiant balls of ionised gas that contain
considerable amounts of energy. There are regions in Russia where such
radiant balls appear very often. Following the ensuing confusion the
Russians started massive research programmes leading finally to some of
the discoveries mentions above. Many people know vacuum domains as
balls in the sky. The attentive look at them in wonder and
themselves, what they could be. I thought once: "Hello up there. If you
happen to be a UFO, fly in a triangle." And suddenly, the light balls
moved in a triangle. Or they shot across the sky like ice hockey pucks.
They accelerated from zero to crazy speeds while sliding gently across
One is left gawking and I have, as many others, too, thought them to be
UFOs. Friendly ones, apparently, as they flew in triangles just to
please me. Now the Russians found in the regions, where vacuum domains
appear often that sometimes fly as balls of light from the ground
upwards into the sky, that these balls can be guided by thought. One
found out since that vacuum domains emit waves of low frequency
are also produced in our brains. And because of this similarity of
they are able to react to our thoughts. To run excitedly into
is on ground level might not be such a great idea, because those balls
of light can contain immense energies and are able to mutate our genes.
They can, they don't necessarily have to, one has to say. For many
spiritual teachers also produce such visible balls or columns of light
in deep meditation or during energy work which trigger decidedly
pleasant feelings and do not cause any harm. Apparently this is also
dependent on some inner order and on the quality and provenance of the
vacuum domain. There are some spiritual teachers (the young Englishman
Ananda, for example) with whom nothing is seen at first, but when one
tries to take a photograph while they sit and speak or meditate in
hypercommunication, one gets only a picture of a white cloud on a
In some Earth healing projects such light effects also appear
photographs. Simply put, these phenomena have to do with gravity and
anti-gravity forces that are also exactly described in the book and
ever more stable wormholes and hypercommunication and thus
from outside our time and space structure. Earlier generations
in contact with such hypercommunication experiences and visible vacuum
domains were convinced that an angel had appeared before them. And we
cannot be too sure to what forms of consciousness we can get access
Not having scientific proof for their actual existence (people having
had such experiences do NOT all suffer from hallucinations) does not
mean that there is no metaphysical background to it. We have simply
another giant step towards understanding our reality. Official
also knows of gravity anomalies on Earth (that contribute to the
formation of vacuum domains), but only of ones of below one percent.
recently gravity anomalies have been found of between three
percent. One of these places is Rocca di Papa, south of Rome (exact
location in the book Vernetzte Intelligenz plus several others). Round
objects of all kinds, from balls to full buses, roll uphill. But the
stretch in Rocca di Papa is rather short, and defying logic sceptics
still flee to the theory of optical illusion (which it cannot be due to
several features of the location).
