So to know what you know we have to lock ourselves up in a libraray for ten years and try to sit in a perfect triangle and resonate sounds while
reading? Okay besides that what can the everyday person learn from this or are we just supposed to take your word on that one?? Just curious to your
haha. O.K. this thread, by necessity, deals with conceptual information -- words. Actually the ten years of self-study I did was after I got my
masters degree which was self-directed research on this topic also. But the real training I did only was intense training for about six months taking
classes from Chunyi Lin, the qigong master.
The classes were through the local community college but I also got the credit for my final self-directed research for my masters degree at the U of
MN. Anyone can take the qigong classes -- but my approach was through this understanding of nonwestern music.
So I did take music classes in college -- I was accepted into the music composition degree at UW-Madison which bragged that its graduates all got into
the Ivy League graduate programs in music composition (Princeton, etc.). I had already taken music composition at Smith College, a women's Ivy League
school in Massachusetts while I attended Hampshire College for my first year of school -- an experimental college with no grades based on the English
tutorial style like at Oxford.
O.K. so my point is that anyone can learn the secret of nonwestern harmonics as mind body and reality transformation by just studying from the qigong
masters -- but it is very rare to find a real qigong master. I listed a few that I have discovered. I first attended a presentation by qigong master
Effie P. Chow in 1995 in Minneapolis and she blew the fuses the room behind us. At the first class I first experienced the chi energy as a magnetic
ball pushing my hands apart.
So it's really best to experience the energy first. For me it was through my hours of piano practice that I first experienced the complementary
opposite of the Perfect Fifth and Perfect Fourth. In other words the energy comes from emotional power -- and through the blues music and the bending
of the Perfect Fifth and Perfect Fourth I could feel this pulling and pushing that went against the Western tuning. So that's how I knew there was a
secret to music beyond the Western tuning.
So when I first took a piano theory class I learned that the Perfect Fifth is C to G as 2:3 and the Perfect Fourth is G to C as 3:4 -- but this does
not make sense for Western harmonics and Western mathematics -- in fact this is the original Pythagorean teaching. Only later did I discover that it
is noncommutative math and is the same as yin and yang in Taoism and also the same as the three gunas of Indian philosophy. So you have 1:2 and 2:3
and 3:4 as the Pythagorean Tetrad.
O.K. so anyway the teachings can be done as a free self-directed study by studying the free online books and doing the practices. Also people can get
a c.d. that guides the harmonic practice of the 12 note scale as the small universe exercise -- it's a half hour practice.
So if you do just half hour a day you'll feel dramatic results ---- this info is also free online in various places.
I already posted the "moving of yin and yang" exercise from youtube and so if a person practices that a half hour a day they will also activate the
complementary opposite resonance.
There are certain sounds that align with each organ -- for healing purposes. So actually the sound turns into electrochemical energy called "jing" in
Taoism -- but actually each organ of the body is associated with a particular emotion -- and so each sound also heals each emotion.
But also the "throat singing" found in meditation -- Tibetan and Mongolian and also throat singing of Innuit, etc. -- this relies on activating the
parasympathetic nervous system as deep meditative relaxation and then the OHM sound is of the heart 7 beats a second resonance -- it's also the
frequency of the drum head -- so the frequency or pitch of the drum head as 7 beats a second can also be the rhythm as 7 beats a second.
So this sound of the heart is actually the conversion of the electrochemical energy into electromagnetic energy that is then stored into the "lower
tan tien" -- or energy field below and behind the navel -- where the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems (the yin and yang) meet
So the females sing all night because the sound of the female voice is actually the jing or N/om energy being transmitted - the kundalini energy. The
males then do the trance dance.
