facts that can be retrieved as needed. Is this an accurate metaphor?
Kandel: No, memory is not like that at all. Human memory reinvents itself all the time. Every time you remember something, you modify it a little bit, in part dependent on the context in which you recall it. That is because the brain’s storage is not as exact as written text. It is always a mixture of many facades of the past event: images, pictures, feelings, words, facts and fiction—a “re-collection” in the true sense.
To summarize, they indicate that:No radioactive isotope was observed to migrate when it was injected into points of normal electric resistance. Nor was any migration observed when injecting isotopes other than sodium pertechetate in points of least electric resistance.
Each time sodium pertechetate was injected into points of least electric resistance, its migration was observed constantly, approximately at 2.5 cms per minute and always following the same longitudinal pathway.
The characteristics of the migration rule out the possibility that the radioactive isotope was carried through the nerves, vessels or lymphatic system. For example, when it was injected in a vein underlying the point of least electrical resistance, transport of a different speed and pathway was observed. Additionally on injecting sodium pertechetate and thallium at the same time, it was observed that the first was transported while the second was not.
What was found: Emission of extremely strong magnetic fields from the head and whole
body during oriental breathing exercises.
“This article reports the result of an experiment that was designed to measure the
biomagnetic field emanating from two individuals who were practicing traditional
Oriental Qi Gong breathing exercises.
It is concluded that traditional Oriental Qi Gong breathing appears to stimulate an
unusually large biomagnetic field emission.”
What was found: Detection of extraordinary large bio-magnetic field strength from human
hand during external Qi emission.
“It is generally accepted that more than 10(-6) gauss order magnetism was not detected
in normal human condition. However, we detected 10(-3) gauss (mGauss) order
bio-magnetic field strength from the palm in special persons who emitted External Qi
(”Chi” or “Ki”).
This magnetic field strength was greater than that of normal human bio-magnetism by
1,000 times at least. A simultaneous measurement of bio-magnetic field strength and its
corresponding bio-electric current was examined in one subject. During exhibiting such
strong bio-magnetism, its corresponding electric current was not detectable. Therefore,
the extra-ordinary large bio-magnetic field strength can not derive from internal body
current alone, hence the origin of the large bio-magnetism is still unknown. We suppose
that the extraordinary large bio-magnetic field strength might be originated from “Qi”
energy in the oriental medicine or in the oriental traditional philosophy.”
outline the internal organs but also malignant tumors as long as identical reference
control tissue is available, regardless of whether it comes from the same individual or
others, without exposing the patient to undesirable radiation from X-Rays, strong
magnetic field or ultra-sound. While imaging the outline of the internal organs the author
found that, from the surface of each organ, lines or networks of lines extend to other
parts of the body. Such a line closely resembles well-known lines of meridians of major
internal organs in Oriental medicine.”
Basic breathing meditation tips
-Inhale and exhale slowly, taking full deep breaths.
-Keep your attention only on your breathing. Be aware of each inhale and exhale.
-If you notice your mind drifting (i.e. if you start thinking about something) then just return your attention back to your breathing. It doesn't matter if your mind wanders as long you bring your attention back to your breathing as soon as you notice your attention is not solely on your breathing.
-Do this for 5-15 minutes.
Exercise 1: Golden Light Breathing Meditation
Visualizing Yourself Breathing in 'Golden Light' can be a Very Effective Breathing Meditation to Help Calm and Focus.
· All you have to do is imagine yourself surrounded by golden light and slowly start breathing it in.
· First breathe in the light through your mouth then pretend to breath it in through your skin.
· Breathe this light in deeply and breathe out any tension.
· Breathe through each part of your body in turn.
· Finally see if you can feel as if you are breathing in this light through every pore in your body.
· Fill your body with the golden light while saying to yourself, "I feel Wonderful, I feel Relaxed, I feel focused. I feel re-energized."
The Body Electric tells the fascinating story of our bioelectric selves. Robert O. Becker, a pioneer in the filed of regeneration and its relationship to electrical currents in living things, challenges the established mechanistic understanding of the body. He found clues to the healing process in the long-discarded theory that electricity is vital to life. But as exciting as Becker's discoveries are, pointing to the day when human limbs, spinal cords, and organs may be regenerated after they have been damaged, equally fascinating is the story of Becker's struggle to do such original work. The Body Electric explores new pathways in our understanding of evolution, acupuncture, psychic phenomena, and healing.
The origins of acupuncture is over 5,000 years old and was practiced beyond the borders of China. An Egyptian treatise from 1550 Before Common Era (BCE) called the Papyrus Ebera refers to vessels that resemble the 12 meridians. South African Bantu tribesman scratched parts of their bodies to cure disease, while Arabs cauterized their ears with hot metal probes. Inuits used sharp stones for tattoos that seem to relate to acupuncture meridians, and Brazilian cannibals shot tiny arrows with blowpipes into diseased parts of their bodies to bring about healing.
