O.K. so the Chinese healer Chunyi Lin says he actually did LEVITATE when he was in deep meditation in the mountains. You have to sit in
full-lotus which is the tetrahedron -- and this is the most efficient resonance of the complementary opposites. Chunyi Lin went 49 days in full-lotus
in a cave -- nonstop -- taking no water, no sleep and no food. I, myself, went 8 days on no food and just half a glass of water but I was not hungry
nor thirsty. You create nutrition and water through electrolysis of the atmosphere.
Actually, you and anothoer poster before have brought up an interesting point. Not many people know that our bones display piezoelectric effects, that
is to say generate an electrical potential when mechanical stress is applied. As stated previously, the lotus position applies alot of strees on your
inner thigh, your ankles and shin aswell as your back and neck, the very posture could provide a small electricalo potential. Now on the grand scale
of things, it's nothing. But to effect the body in subtle ways? ways that may even go unnoticed, or if noticed for nothing more than a feeling of
In all fairness the articles clearly says that they doubt that wet bone, under physilogical frequencies could generate even these nominal amounts of
potential, but it is still very interesting, to me at least.
Studies of the dielectric and piezoelectric properties of fully hydrated bone raise some doubt as to whether wet bone is piezoelectric at all at
physiological frequencies (5.2). Piezoelectric effects occur in the kilohertz range, well above the range of physiologically significant frequencies
(5.2). Both the dielectric properties (5.3) and the piezoelectric properties of bone (5.4) depend strongly upon frequency. The magnitude of the
piezoelectric sensitivity coefficients of bone depends on frequency, on direction of load, and on relative humidity. Values up to 0.7 pC/N have
been observed (5.4), to be compared with 0.7 and 2.3 pC/N for different directions in quartz, and 600 pC/N in some piezoelectric ceramics. It is,
however, uncertain whether bone is piezoelectric in the classic sense at the relatively low frequencies which dominate in the normal loading of bone.
The streaming potentials examined originally by Anderson and Eriksson (5.5,5.6) can result in stress generated potentials at relatively low
frequencies even in the presence of dielectric relaxation but this process is as yet poorly understood.
This could also be the cause of some of the more anomalous feelings people report through yoga or tai chi , the increased vitality, strength or
Both of these arts (there are more) use stretching and motion to push and pull weight around their body, the key to both is an ability to understand
and control shifting your bodies weight, your muscles are also plied during these excercises. Could this not release and even promote the flow of this
potential charge? or your 'chi'.
Also, to think that examples of similar process' being used in limb regeneration? Artificially regenerated limbs on rats? Could this be the natural
process of amphibians well know regeneration abilities?
Becker and co-workers [5.19-5.22] have also explored tissue electrical properties in connection with growth, repair and regeneration. For example,
[5.22, 5.23] partial limb regeneration in rats was stimulated by application of weak electrical signals. Electrical signals in amphibians [5.24],
which can naturally regenerate lost limbs, differ from those in mammals, which ordinarily do not regenerate lost limbs. Cartilage [5.25] exhibits
electrical response to applied force.
Still reading the article, may have more.
article -.- silver.neep.wisc.edu...
OK this is quite interesting. I have a book on tai chi sitting next to me, it cearly states it's belief that one of the most beneficial things about
tai chi is how it effects you vitality and health. Now one of it's biggest Pro's was that it in fact helps you lymphatic system disseminate lymph
throught your body. Your lymphatic system doesn't have a pump like you heart to fire it around the body, so it depends on motion to get itself
around. Tai chi utilises most muscles and tendons in you body, not to mention putting considerable stress on your bones. I have also just read
Bone electricity: wet and dry
[SNIP] The piezolectric polarization may consequently depend on the strain gradient (5.7) as well as on the strain. Theoretical analyses of
bone piezoelectricity (5.9-5.12) may be relevant to the issue of bone remodeling. Recent, thorough, studies have explored electromechanical effects in
wet and dry bone. They suggest that two different mechanisms are responsible for these effects: classical piezoelectricity due to the molecular
asymmetry of collagen in dry bone, and fluid flow effects, possibly streaming potentials in wet bone (5.13).
One of the main modes of transport for the lymphatic system is bone marrow, considering bone is porous by nature, it is interesting.
Now this is all a little of topic but I was looping back to the monks chanting and 'levitating; objects. The key to a good chant is your dantien, or
sea of energy, also known as our stomach. Good diaphragm work is the key apparently. Could the stomach be a sort of resonant cavity?
