An Unearthly Sound is Emanating From the Caribbean Sea

By Maddie Stone (Gizmodo staff writer), 21 June 2016

Beneath the hum of ship traffic and the chatter of marine life, another sound is emanating from the Caribbean Sea. It’s far too low pitched for humans to hear, but its signature can be detected from space. Scientists have never seen—or heard—anything like it.

Located southeast of the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea features a large basin bounded by South America, Central America, and the Caribbean Islands. It’s a critical cog in the global circulation belt, forming currents that feed directly into the Gulf Stream. But when researchers at the University of Liverpool decided to study the dynamics of the Caribbean Sea, they noticed something odd.

“We were looking at ocean pressure through models for quite different reasons, and this region just didn’t work,” Chris Hughes of the University of Liverpool told Gizmodo, explaining how his models kept yielding large, inexplicable pressure oscillations across the basin. “It felt like a sore thumb.”

After spotting the weird oscillations in models, Hughes and his colleagues decided to see if they could observe the phenomenon in the ocean. Sure enough, they did. Combining pressure readings collected from the bottom of the Caribbean Sea between 1958 and 2013 with tide gauge records and data from NASA’s Grace satellite, the researchers discovered that the basin of Caribbean Sea acts like a giant whistle.

“You have a current that flows east to west through the Caribbean Sea,” Hughes explained. “It’s very narrow and quite strong. Just like a narrow jet of air, it becomes unstable and creates eddies.”

When those waves strike the western boundary of the basin, they die out and reappear at the eastern edge. This phenomenon, flashily named the “Rossy wormhole,” was first described several years back. Scientists now know that waves of certain shapes and sizes will resonate when they hit that western wall, just as certain frequencies resonate when you blow into a whistle. In both cases, the resonant frequency produces a sound.

But because the basin of the Caribbean Sea is so vast compared with an actual whistle, the resonant frequency is extremely low. It takes 120 days for waves to propagate east to west in the basin, yielding an A-flat tone that’s roughly 30 octaves below the bottom of a piano. A pitched-up version of that excessively eerie sound can be heard in the clip above.

Dubbed the “Rossby Whistle” in a paper accepted for publication inGeophysical Research Letters, the phenomenon can be detected from space owing to fluctuations in Earth’s gravity field as pressure changes propagate across the entire basin. The researchers plan to keep monitoring the Rossby Whistle, with the hope that the signal might be used to predict times of the year when coastal flooding is more likely.

So, if you ever find yourself out alone at night on the Caribbean, and the world feels completely still, just remember: it isn’t. The ocean is always speaking to you.

The Laws and Directives of Creation

The Laws and Directives of Creation

Date Written: 18th May 2006, by / via Edward Albert Meier, The Future of Mankind1

[From Arahat Athersata p.89:]

For the Earth human Creational laws and directives govern eternally, (just as they govern the whole universe, on all worlds and all beings). As a result of the power of the human’s spirit, which lives in him, it is possible for him to live quite consciously according to these laws and directives and to thereby perfect himself.

Therefore the more he arranges himself under, and adapts to, the ironclad order of these spiritual laws and directives, the more knowledge, truth and wisdom consciously grow in him, and the more the monstrous (ie. enormous) powers of consciousness grow in him which he may, through the created knowledge and ability, employ as capabilities. Therewith he really does open himself for all creational powers that stream into him out of the infinite vastness of the universe as a living current of love. If the Earth human treads this way, then he not only leads a life corresponding to the creational order and its laws and directives, but he goes the true way of the spiritual and consciousness evolution, and therewith the way of the perfecting.

The law of love is the most fundamental of all creational laws and this law also embodies the ground law for you Earth humans. Who therefore does not practice universal love to all offends against a directive of the order and against a law of the determination.

How do we begin to recognise the laws and directives of Creation for ourselves? OM tells us that the prophets have often taken their students into free nature to teach them because the works of creation themselves express the love of Creation.

[From, OM, Canon 40:]

32. Truly, where can one be and where can one also speak with the most exalted language which can talk of the creational love so movingly as the works of Creation themselves speak?

33. And truly, what is all school wisdom of all human teaching compared to a single notion that comes about out of the abundance of the creations of Creation which are themselves even only a glancing reflection of the creational origin become visible for the human eye?

34. The human must feel that nature calls to his breast.

35. And truly, the human is another (person) in his closed rooms where so many small circumstances disagreeably remind him and beset his psyche and indeed his nature, and destroy or take away everything great.

36.The human is another person, when, surrounded by the rays of the heavenly creational sunrise, the pure delight of awakening nature streams through him.

37. And he is another if, at a friend’s side and in the healthy shade of swaying bushes, he takes pleasure in bright conversation.

38. And the human is another when the lovely evening silence lays its peace in his psyche and in his consciousness. …

What are some of the laws and directives?

[From Arahat Athersata p.21:]

As an individual being the human has various tasks that he is obliged to fulfill. He is firstly obliged to maintain his life (for the duration of the time given him for development) and secondly, to further develop himself spiritually and consciously as much as possible and to acknowledge the evolution of spirit as an important truth. He has the obligation as a part of the community to maintain his kind and instruct and educate his descendants in the sense of the spiritual teachings. Further, he is obliged to arrange himself under, and adapt himself to, a natural community order which guarantees a natural evolution in any relationship, just as is observably demonstrated in nature.

Arahat Athersata and the Plejaren repeatedly advise us in particular about our out-of-control overpopulation problem and, as of 1975, recommended a strict, humane plan of world-wide birth control (which we arrogantly and self-destructively ignored, and continue to ignore. Countries like Australia even promote the growth of our population for economic reasons even as our water and other resources are increasingly reduced and contaminated!).

Arahat Athersata says, that one of the most important tasks of the realm of material life of the Earthly humanity is to pay attention to the fact that the population must be very severely restricted and the number of human beings must not exceed 500 million. (According to the Plejaren we had 7.5 billion at the end of 2004, which is one billion more that was acknowledged at the same time by the USAmerican Census Bureau!)

According to the Creational laws and directives the correct formula for maintaining the human species is not one of simply increasing, as is wrongly proclaimed by Earthly religions, but is based in the adherence to the natural laws so that there is order, meaning that population growth is overseen and supervised. Through the irrationality and false religious teaching of the Earth human the mass of humanity is driven into boundlessness, whereby problems, which are containable and can be restricted for a small humanity, spread and become uncontrollable to an unspeakable extent.

With the breaking and abuse of the law of maintenance of the species humanity has been driven to a mass of overpopulation in only a few hundred years, and with that all problems, need and degeneration climb (and because of this millions are forced to die a degenerate death.) (Please refer to the FIGU overpopulation pamphlets for more on this.)

To follow Creational laws and directives also means the correct raising of children, in which, by adulthood, they are entirely equipped for self-reliance and independence from their parents. Other laws concern respect for all life forms, not killing in degeneration, (which includes not committing suicide), learning from mistakes rather than condemning them, taking responsibility for one’s own thoughts, words and deeds, not judging falsely but instead making judgments according to logic, respecting one’s spiritual and physical needs, the requirement for leadership in each family, community and population, etc., the obligation of a leader to guide, teach and protect the people, the implementation of correctional measures for wrong behavior instead of torture or the death penalty, which entirely go against the Creational laws and directives, and so on.

The ironclad laws and directives cannot be changed or injured

[From Arahat Athersata p.101:]

The differences among the most varied kinds of life lie only in their form, never, however, in differing laws and directives, because these are universally uniform. However, as a form of life capable of independent thought, the Earth human may consciously, as well as unconsciously, steer and influence his evolution, whereby he is also capable of abusing and offending against the existing laws and directives of Creation, whereby however he would become incapable of life and sink into the abyss.

[From Arahat Athersata p.96:]

Even if, in his lack of reason, the Earth human is still so bestial and barbaric and ingenious in the most malicious intrigues, he will still never be able to alter or destroy the laws and directives of Creation. Even were his intrigues very great and forceful in their application and effect they may never injure the creational laws and directives. The adverse effects of the intrigues he employs, and of the hate, always fall back on the originator himself and very often bring him fatal damage.

So if the human thinks and behaves according to the laws of intrigue and hate which he himself produces, he has to bear the results which come from that himself, because, due to all the negative degeneration, of all possible outcomes he can only organize for himself evil suffering, need, misery and damage.

Arahat Athersata also explains that the spirit also lives according to the same laws and directives of the creational order and cannot simply abuse these, and, in the same way, the Creation itself cannot abuse its own laws and directives.

[Arahat Athersata p.20:]

That which is timeless is eternal, and in timeless eternity rest the truth and wisdom of Creative strength and omnipotence. The harder a human being strives to approach this truth, the easier it will be for him to live the laws and commandments in the Creative order. The order of all infinite continuity will shine radiantly into man’s life, provided he recognizes and observes the truth of Creation, its laws, and commandments.

Tranquility, peace and love become his life’s companions through space and time and are evidence of the perfection of creational harmony.

New State of Water: Strange 6-Sided Molecule Found

New State of Water: Strange 6-Sided Molecule Found

Researchers discovered that water in beryl displays some unique and unexpected characteristics.

Credit: Jeff Scovil

A strange new behavior of water molecules has been observed inside crystals of beryl, a type of emerald, caused by bizarre quantum-mechanical effects that let the water molecules face six different directions at the same time.

Under normal conditions, the two hydrogen atoms in each water molecule are arranged around the oxygen atom in an open “V” shape, sometimes compared to a boomerang or Mickey Mouse ears.

But in a new experiment, scientists have found that hydrogen atoms of some water molecules trapped in the crystal structure of the mineral beryl become “smeared out” into a six-sided ring. [The Surprisingly Strange Physics of Water]

The ring shape is caused by the “quantum tunneling” of the molecules, a phenomenon that lets subatomic particles pass or “tunnel” through seemingly-impossible physical barriers.

In this scenario, the atoms of the water molecule are “delocalized” among six possible directions inside natural hexagonal pores or channels that run though the crystal structure of the beryl, so it partially exist in all six positions at the same time, the researchers said.

Scientists from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the United Kingdom observed the newly discovered effect in blue aquamarine crystals purchased at a gem show. Blue aquamarine; green and red emerald; pink morganite; gold heliodor; and clear goshenite gemstones are all varieties of the mineral beryl (beryllium aluminum cyclosilicate) with traces of other chemicals that give the crystals their characteristic colors.

“We chose beryl because it has a crystal structure that has channels in it, about 5 angstroms [5 ten-millionths of a millimeter] across — a little bit bigger than a water molecule — and it’s known from spectroscopic data that natural beryls have water in them,” said Larry Anovitz, a geochemist at ORNL and one of the authors of a paper on the new research. “We already know from lots of other studies that as you put water in smaller and smaller pores it starts to affect the properties of the water — the freezing point drops, the density changes, all sorts of things. So, we wanted to know, if you made that pore so small that you only can get a single molecule of water into it, what would that would do to the properties of water?”

What happened next was unexpected, Anovitz told Live Science.

“We knew that natural beryl would have water in these channels in the structure, so we could go and look at that and see what the properties were,” he said. “But we didn’t know that the properties would turn out to be so strange when we looked.” [Sinister Sparkle Gallery: 13 Mysterious and Cursed Gemstones]

At ORNL’s Spallation Neutron Source facility, after cooling the beryl crystals to very low temperatures, the scientists measured the lowest-energy states of the atoms in the trapped water molecules with neutron-scattering experiments, which use a beam of subatomic neutron particles to chart the motion of atoms and molecules.

“When we started looking at peaks in the inelastic neutron spectrum for this sample, we saw a number of peaks in the spectrum that, instead of getting bigger with temperature — which is what is expected to happen — they got smaller with temperature,” Anovitz said.

“There are two ways this could happen — either by quantum tunneling or magnetic transitions — and we were able to prove that this is actually the quantum tunneling of the water molecules,” he said.

Interactions between water molecules and the walls of the hexagonal channels usually force the water into the center of the channel, with both hydrogen “mouse ears” facing the same one of the six sides.

In their lowest energy states, the water molecules do not have enough energy to rotate to one of the adjacent positions.

But in the areas where the channels narrow so just a single water molecule can fit, the atoms in the water molecule can “tunnel” through the energy barrier that prevents rotation. And the new experiments reveal that the molecules were forming a “double-top” shape, with the proton nucleus of each hydrogen atom delocalizing into a six-sided ring around the central oxygen atom, the researchers said.

Alexander Kolesnikov, a physicist at ORNL and the lead author of the new paper, said additional studies at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory had determined that the kinetic energy of the hydrogen protons in the six-sided water molecules was about 30 percent lower than in molecules of water in its normal state, or “bulk water.”

“That is a direct indication that this is a quantum property due to the tunneling of water in this beryl channel,” Kolesnikov told Live Science. “In classical terms, the kinetic energy would be expected to be something comparable to all other bulk water.

“This is not a new phase of water [like ice or steam] — it’s not completely in the gas phase, but it’s close to a gas phase,” he added. “But at low temperatures, due to quantum delocalization, the kinetic energy of the protons significantly decreases, and they propagate under this [energy] barrier. So, I would say this is kind of a new state of the water molecule.”

Anovitz said that quantum tunneling was known to occur in other substances but that the effect was usually limited to subatomic particles rather than larger particles like water molecules.

Quantum tunneling was also known to take place among hydrogen atoms in methyl-group molecules, which are arranged in a triangular pyramid shape around a carbon atom, but the molecules looked the same shape after the tunneling transition, he said.

“With water, when it’s moving around this six-fold axis in the beryl channel, it doesn’t look the same anymore — and that’s something that’s never been seen before,” Anovitz said.

The findings were published April 22 in the journal Physical Review Letters.

The Quantum Activist

There’s a revolution going on in science.

The Quantum Activist

A genuine paradigm shift. While mainstream science remains materialist, a substantial number of scientists are supporting and developing a paradigm based on the primacy of consciousness. Dr. Amit Goswami, Ph.D, a pioneer of this revolutionary new perspective within science shares with us his vision of the unlimited potential of consciousness as the ground of all being, and how this revelation can actually help us to live better. The Quantum Activist tells the story of a man who challenges us to rethink our very notions of existence and reality, with a force and scope not felt since Einstein. This film bridges the gap between God and Science. The work of Goswami, with stunning precision and without straying from the rigors of quantum mechanics, reveals the overarching unity inherent in the worlds major religions and mystical traditions.

Ear Training Exercises I

EAR TRAINING I
Pitch, Rhythm, & Loudness, Cf for Linda, 4 Nov 2015

Ear training is a hearing skill in which musicians learn to identify pitches, intervals, chords, rhythms, instruments, sections, timbre, and other elements of sound. We can completely represent a sound with these three parameters: Pitch, Rhythm, and Loudness. We will use music to listen, derive, and rehearse to these elements in rotation.

RHYTHM EXERCISE

Using the Song EIGHT DAYS A WEEK, by Lennon McCartney – (2 min, 43 sec) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VadngOGKlP0 (Youtube), play the song over your stereo.

1. Identify and clap along to the main pulse of the song (written in 4 / 4) for the whole song

(4 beats to the bar, the quarter note gets one beat), Count ||: 1 2 3 4 :||

2. Listen for the clapping already recorded on the song and clap along for the VERSE song sections which contain clapping on the main beats of 2 and 4.

The main claps are on beats 2 and 4:

Count   ||: 1  2  3  4 :||
   Clap  ||: .   >   .  > :|| where > is a clap, and . Is a rest, ||: repeat :||

3. Listen for and add the grace notes for the shuffle beat over the PRE-CHORUS section:

Count | 1  2  3  4 | 1  2  3  4 | 1  2  3  4 | 1  2  3  4 |
Lyric   | Hold Me  | Love Me  | Hold Me  | Love Me  |
Clap   | .  >  .  > >| .  >  .  > > | .  > .  > > | .  >  . > > |

LOUDNESS EXERCISE

4. Using two kinds of loudness for your claps: soft (or piano), and loud (or forte), clap along to the song on every pulse with a soft clap, and add the rhythm we learned on top of it with a loud clap.

Count ||: 1   2  3  4  :||
Clap   ||:  ^   >   ^   > :|| where ^ is a soft clap, and > is a loud clap

Where there is no clapping in the song, just quietly keep the pulse internally and use a small quiet tapping or movement.

5. A Decrescendo of your loudness or dynamics. Clap along for the whole song again on beats 2 and 4, but this time, over 4 bars, gradually reduce the loudness of your claps from loud to soft.

Count | 1  2  3  4 | 1  2  3  4 | 1  2  3  4 | 1  2  3  4 |
Clap   |  .  >  .   > |  .  >   .  > |  .   >  .   > | .   >  .  > |
Descrescendo

Loudness forte                                              piano

6. Do this again, only reverse the loudness of your claps from soft to loud; a Crescendo

PITCH EXERCISE

7. Whenever you hear the single pitch of Ooo I need your love babe, Clap, sing or play it

8. Using your sense of pitch, rhythm, & loudness identify these parts of the song:
INTRO, VERSE, PRE-CHORUS or CLIMB, CHORUS, BRIDGE, and CODA.

All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance ~ Nikola Tesla

“All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never ending cycles all things and phenomena.” – Nikola Tesla,“Man’s Greatest Achievement,” 1907

MAN’S GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT
By Nikola Tesla.

WHEN a child is born its sense-organs are brought in contact with the outer world.

The waves of sound, heat and light beat upon its feeble body, its sensitive nerve-fibres quiver, the muscles contract and relax in obedience: a gasp, a breath, and in this act a marvelous little engine, of inconceivable delicacy and complexity of construction, unlike any on earth, is hitched to the wheel-work of the Universe.

The little engine labors and grows, performs more and more involved operations, becomes sensitive to ever subtler influences and now there manifests itself in the fully developed being–Man–a desire mysterious, inscrutable and irresistible: to imitate nature, to create, to work himself the wonders he perceives.

Inspired to this task he searches, discovers and invents, designs and constructs, and enriches with monuments of beauty, grandeur and awe, the star of his birth.

He descends into the bowels of the globe to bring forth its hidden treasures and to unlock its immense imprisoned energies for his use. He invades the dark depths of the ocean and the azure regions of the sky.

He peers into the innermost nooks and recesses of molecular structure and lays bare to his gaze worlds (unreadable) remote. He subdues and puts to his service the fierce, devastating spark of Prometheus, the titanic forces of the waterfall, the wind and the tide.

He tames the thundering bolt of Jove and annihilates time and space. He makes the great Sun itself his obedient toiling slave. Such is his power and might that the heavens reverberate and the whole earth trembles by the mere sound of his voice.

What has the future in store for this strange being, born of a breath, of perishable tissue, yet immortal, with his powers fearful and divine? What magic will be wrought by him in the end? What is to be his (unreadable) deed, his crowning achievement?

Long ago he recognized that all perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, of a tenuity beyond conception and filling all space–the Akasa or luminiferous ether–which is acted upon by the life-giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never ending cycles, all things and phenomena.

The primary substance, thrown into infinitesimal whirls of prodigious velocity, becomes gross matter; the force subsiding, the motion ceases and matter disappears, reverting to the primary substance.

Can Man control this grandest, most awe-inspiring of all processes in nature? Can he harness her inexhaustible energies to perform all their functions at his bidding, more still–can he so refine his means of control as to put them in operation simply by the force of his will?

If he could do this he would have powers almost unlimited and supernatural. At his command, with but a slight effort on his part, old worlds would disappear, and new ones of his planning would spring into being.

He could fix, solidify and preserve the ethereal shapes of his imagining, the fleeting visions of his dreams. He could express all the creations of his mind, on any scale, in forms concrete and imperishable.

He could alter the size of this planet, control its seasons, guide it along any path he might choose through the depths of the Universe. He could make planets collide and produce his suns and starts, his heat and light. He could originate and develop life in all its infinite forms.

To create and to annihilate material substance, cause it to aggregate in forms according to his desire, would be the supreme manifestation of the power of Man’s mind, his most complete triumph over the physical world, his crowning achievement which would place him beside his Creator and fulfill his ultimate destiny.

Inventor Creates new Fractal Chaotic Sound Synthesis, releases Video, CD, Papers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 23 September 2015

Toronto Ontario Canada. A video demo of the new CD Album2 of Electroacoustic and Computational Feedback Sound Synthesis is released, ‘Slovakian Sky Watcher‘ from the album ‘JUPITER STORMS‘. Created by Inventor / performer Campbell foster with images by award winning filmmaker Jean-Pierre Joubert.

The soundscape track ‘Slovakian Sky Watcher‘ (6:46’) features an unrelenting drum beat sequence created using feedback synthesis. It expresses the inevitable, layered with strange sky noises recorded sounding like crowds screaming, the earths crust at a breaking point, and War of the Worlds meets Michael Jackson, with our Slovakian commentator interspersed.

Video images of soldiers marching in time, people looking up apprehensively, the fury of Nature, war and its weapons, and ultimately Nature triumphing over mans’ destruction makes a poignant statement reflecting our current world.

FROM FEEDBACK SYNTHESIS TO ORIGINS OF FORM

I present for your perusal, an extended ABSTRACT of my current paper “Origins of Form” (C.Foster, 2015) invited for consideration by the MIT Journal ‘Leonardo’ editorial board. My previous paper “Electroacoustic and Computational Feedback Synthesis” (C.Foster, 2011, CEC) outlines and demonstrates the methods and results of a new and unique sound synthesis method discovered.

Here the entire Abstract, with a PDF version is available for offline reading: Origins of Form 5vr1.PDF (5 pgs, 833 KB).

ABSTRACT (Extended)

Through the identification of emergent anomalous forms of Electroacoustic and Computational feedback synthesis soundscapes and visual (Spectrogram) outputs, and comparative research into Nature phenomenon, orb photography, sacred geometry, dark energy, and the subtle body energies, deep insights into form and its origins were discovered and are outlined here.

Form originates from the infinitely subtle (-infinity dB) to the most complex iterations (dBm) as complex sounds are iterated, grown, and multiplied into existence by seeding the feedback loop with a sound sample Emitter in the method of electroacoustic and computational feedback synthesis. Soundscapes are synthesized mechanically (Electroacoustically, with the Electroacoustic Sheet Metal Feedback Phone), and digitally (Computational, in real-time) by using the process or phenomenon of feedback in which some portion of the output of a system is returned to its input for the synthesis of sound1

The feedback synthesis (FBS) loop is chaotic (extreme sensitivity to initial conditions, cause and effect are not proportional, nonlinearity, topological mixing), and fractal (scalar self-similarity, irregularity locally and globally, emergence, turbulence, strange attractor and Iterative function system behaviours). Generated soundscapes and visuals (Spectrograms) exhibit fractal and chaotic outputs including forms generated from the topological mixing of all sound parameters; pitch, time, amplitude, and stereophony.

To identify the emergent forms generated by feedback synthesis, I looked to Nature to find similar morphologies. Where FBS produced pitch branching over time, I found branching in tree structures in Nature. Where FBS produced a constant rising of pitch, I found tree structure branches always rising upwards to lesser gravity. Where water sounds may be slowed down or sped up and sound fractally the same, I found FBS time stretching, amplification, and Spectrogram analysis to reveal scalar and self-similar micro-sonic detail. The gentle fractal curve of the outline of a leaf was similar to the amplitude envelope outline of frequency spectrum graphs of FBS outputs2.

Looking deeper into FBS and comparatively Nature, the retrograde investigation of smaller and subtler origins of forms, pointed always to a vector of a source origins realm, a generative scheme of infinite possibilities also embodied in the tabula rasa feedback system loop energized by amplification (expansion) with the potential to generate sonic and material objects through iterative growth. All forms traced and pointed back to a profound iterative source origin, made fractally of itself, smaller and finer elements reduced to atomic particles then further to the energetic and non-particlulate realms, finally to pre-material and pre-energetic realms, the unpercievable realm of the unseen worlds of dark matter, chi, expressed in the manifestation of Nature, the bodies’ subtle energies, space, time, energy, matter, and the primary forces.

With the cosmological accounting of the weight of the universe, we found that Dark energy constitutes 68%, and Dark Matter 27% of the unpercievable cosmos. All matter and particles makes up only 5% of the total universe3. One characteristic of this dark (unseen) energetic realm is the accelerated expansion of space in all directions. This exemplifies some primary characteristics of this ream; transcendent quantities, expansion, emergence, growth, the manifestation of space, and therefore time and the material.

We can directly experience the nature and outcome of this ‘pre-aetheric’ realm as life-force, chi energy, or dark energy which exists in all matter and especially organic living objects and bodies. It is sensed through the subtle body energies, meditation, and the deep emotions (beliefs), the faint and attractive emergent energy of our being, the formation of cogent thoughts in the moment of consciousness experience of it, and the positive growth and energetic management of our bodies as systems, driven by this realm and resulting life forces. Nature, life, and our being, are direct expressions of the characteristics of this primary realm.

Through the practice and experience of Qi Gong, Reiki, Accupuncture, meditation, and mindfulness, for example, we can cultivate, manipulate, and direct these subtle body and unseen universal energies outcomes (both internally and externally) for medical, martial, and spiritual benefits to the individual. This realm transcends form, space, time, matter, and energy, though is not yet directly measurable in a scientific way. Due to its infinite character, it can only be experientially validated through our interaction with it, observed as the outcomes, behaviours, and forms of Nature, and our own expression of being experienced through consciousness and life.

The double-slit experiment of quantum mechanics proves that the mind (and body) are able to externally effect energy and matter and congeal probablilities of electromagnetic energy into discrete photons of light, our consciousness working in this timeless, formless, quantum realm.

Abberrations to photons an low light level phenomenon were observed and captured on film in series of orb photographs. Orb forms (fig. 1) were captured using HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography taken using a flash in large ambiently lit atriums capturing performer and audience created light traced spherical orb shapes. On processing, subtle orb based geometric forms appeared with an apparent spatial connection to the performers. This appears to be photonic disturbance created by the consciousness of the performer projecting their observation into this unperceived realm, collapsing probabilities into photon particles. A imprint in reality was created by the performer (and energetically contributed to by the some audience members) when playing and projecting their conscious intention and instruments’ sounds into a performance environment, emerging from the quantum realm to create subtle photonic disturbances with sacred geometric attributes.

This elusive and imperceivable universal singularity, unmeasurable and pre-empting the manifestation of energy, force, space, time, and matter, emerges first with; the perfections of sacred geometry, pure atomic and crystalline structures, the perfection of mathematics, the fractal geometry of nature5, life form structures, harmonic and fourier relations, the primary geometric forms and organizations found in nature, being and consciousness, and the known existential universe.

Sacred Geometry is a term used to describe patterns, shapes and forms that are part of the make up of all living things and that regularly occur in nature. It is system of universal design in which the energy of creation organizes itself into form.

More validation of this realm emerged with various sized Pyramids, designed and constructed to sacred geometry dimensions, and operating on a pre-aetheric level, to collect and amplify biocosmic life energy (Dark energy, Chi) through their inherent shape perfection and Phi dimensions. Some proven effects; enhanced plant and animal growth, food taste enhancement and preservation, razor blade sharpening, direct experience of higher levels of life-energy, and positive healing results6. The Pyramid energy is all positive with documented effects and is greatly amplified using large ring magnets, and Tesla bifilar coils incorporated into the structure and design.

Observation and practice continued to point to finer and subtler source origins in the investigations of Electroacoustic and Computational feedback synthesis, Nature, orb photography, sacred geometry, dark energy, and life energy. Complex sonic forms exhibiting fractal similarities to the low amplitude and short duration Emitter seed samples generated iteratively, formed a vector of ever decreasing amplitudes reduced to the imperceivable. In the upward and cumulative direction, a manifestation of increasing complexity and scale of form, we observe the character of this subtle ultimate originating ream in its infinite manifestations of the primary forces, nature, energy, sound, matter, space, and time.

Analysis of form from the complex composite material, to the finer atomic, then finer energetic and force origins, point to an even subtler quantum realm and unseen omnipresent pre-medium, infinite in quantity, space, time, and pre-empting material manifestation. Expressed in the forms of Nature and its fundamental forces, prana, Qi, matter, space, time, and energy, life energy. It is unmeasurable, and experienced by the human body on a profound being and consciousness moment, giving and sustaining life, with workable interactions, pre-existing in all forms of matter, space, and time, expressively and theosophically called Spirit, and relationally and experientially called love7.

IDENTIFY represents my most current æsthetic and technological research work, excerpts of which are presented in my paper “Electroacoustic and Computational Feedback Synthesis” for TES 2011. The piece arose from an experiment in seeding a computational feedback system and loop. In order to enable system intelligently generated sound phenomenon for further study, a non-interferential approach to the generation and observation of sound phenomenon is used to avoid quantum observational effects and Unintended Consequences.

Listen for Topological mixing of all sound parameters including stereophony, the female voice as Emitter seed value, the Star Trek transporter sound (3:35), Blade Runner soundtrack (8:02), Pitch walkabouts in an overall upward direction, and the interrelated systems behaviour of sound attributes producing fractal sound phenomenon from the tabula rasa feedback loop.
