It has been well over a decade now since
I saw the video. In it a radiantly
vibrant silver haired woman marches assertively up to a podium and proceeds to
give a slide lecture presentation of her discovery and recording of nothing
less than the human energy field – a first in western science. Her voice is powerful and her
manner confident – a polished presenter as befits her background as a retired
Professor of Physiology at a major university.
She had been studying the musculature of
dancers and this led to her investigating what lay behind the 'noise' on her
recordings of the electronic traces created by the movement of their
muscles. What she discovered
was a whole range of minute signals that had never been seen before — patterns
below the pattern — like some sort of energetic Mandelbrot, they were in the
audio range and could be amplified and heard as well as seen' by sensitive's,
as if they were the sound of light'.
No wonder no one had ever found them – who would have guessed! 'Light' you can listen
to! And furthermore each one
of these frequencies corresponded to a discrete characteristic of the human
mind and body and each had a distinct waveform and color. So frequency, waveform and color were
synonymous with different human characteristics. She was astounded.
But what was it about the shape of the
waveforms of this 'light' that contributed to its appearance and function? Was there something behind light
that helped give it its distinctive waveform and that was behind the
characteristics of mind and body it appeared to represent? Was the waveform a combination of
carrier wave and some sort of modulated intent which helped to shape it and
give it meaning — a literal display of function following form? She didn't say.
Her name was Dr. Valerie Hunt and the waveforms
she displayed on her slides were what are known as vector waveforms. All known frequencies in the
electromagnetic spectrum are vector waves. Vector waves travel spatially for long distances and can be
displayed and measured. But
there are other waves in physics that are known to be 'below' or 'behind' the
vector waveforms that we can see and measure and these waveforms are referred
to as scalars and they are not so easy to see or measure — or
Writing about scalars is like writing
about zen. You could spend
infinities at it and still be scratching your head in a different place. The language is all square and the 'whole' is a confoundin' dodecahedron.
It's a pathetic operation — has an endlessly futile feel to it like
throwing water balloons at the sun.
When you sift through the literature you are confronted with a Berlin
wall of 'talkin' in tongues'
terminology and Rune like formulas, all of which does nothing to clarify the
true nature of the phenomena.
In fact the opposite happens. A window of opacity opens up before the reader,
somehow revealing yet simultaneously obscuring the view. Such is physics.
One thing though that does jump out at
the casual investigator is that scalars have been referred to, at times as the
information 'behind' a vector waveform and that when a vector waveform is 'collapsed' the scalar information is 'revealed'. This is generally done by running a vector through what is
known as a Caduceus coil, a winding twisting pair of wires which wrap the wave
back around on itself so as to combine the waveforms in such a way as to negate
them, like a homeopathic. But the
information left behind is not like a radio signal that was modulated onto
a carrier wave — a small vector riding on the back of a bigger vector — it's
the information that formed the wave itself… and that survives
its destruction. A very
If scalars were something of an alchemist's dream then perhaps
I was headed for a bottomless pit of pi in the sky, but as luck would
have it I was eventually pointed in the direction of Tom Bearden, that
curmudgeonly critic of all things false, inelegant and wrong headed in the
field of electrical engineering. Bearden was a contradiction. On the one hand he was 'country… just
folks', a loyal and retired military Cold Warrior with the Chuck Yeager twang,
while on the other hand he was an ultimate, sophisticated and devastating Free
Thinker! — an intellectual and philosophical thorn in the side of an entire
world view, like an 'edgy' Terence McKenna with an oscilloscope probe. No walls around his words! But he was more than just a pain in the
neck to the Phd's in 'Double E'… he had something that not one of them could
claim. He had earned a patent, but
not just any patent, another boring 'breakthrough' in the long line of
incremental engineering. No…his
patent was unique, the first ever awarded for a Free Energy device (Uber
Unity!). So when he 'spoke'… I
listened. And what he spoke 'spoke
volumes' to my clouded mind — gave clarity to what were murky waters — like
Soma for my scratched sunglasses.
What he 'spoke' was actually a reply to a question in an interview recorded
on-line that he had given almost two decades earlier yet it was more revealing
than any of even the more recent descriptions I could find.
On the subject of scalars…
"If the sum of the internal motions is zero, the external
object seems to be sitting still and motionless to us (though it's still moving
through time with — usually — uniform motion)."
Interesting — scalars were somehow 'still'… yet "still
"We describe that internal characteristic of the system as a
vector zero resultant system. Externally we may also characterize it as a
scalar, because it still possesses attributes that have magnitude. On the other
hand, if the sum of the internal motions is not zero, but is a motion in a
certain spatial direction, then to us the external object seems to be moving
along in space. That is, it is translating spatially. Externally it has both
magnitude and direction, so we view it as a vector. To label a thing as only a
vector is to look only at its external attributes. To label a thing as only a
scalar is to look only at its external attributes. To look at its internal
attributes, it must be recognized as a scalar and a vector at the same time.
That is, the scalar attributes must be recognized to be composed on internal
What he was describing was a paradox
(takes one to know one!)… it not only seemed to move in space while
standing still, a scalar had vector like movements but was not a vector…
"And the whole system that is not moving
spatially is still moving in time. However, we don't see "time" but
just space; therefore we see the thing as "motionless." However, the
"motionless" thing we look at is rather like a fixed whirlpool
in a swiftly flowing river the whirlpool seems to us to stay "fixed"
and motionless, but internally its parts (the flowing water) are in constant
Scalars as whirlpools! They rotate
but don't radiate.— they occupy space, even rotate in space but
don't radiate into space outside of the space they occupy!
A simple vector — one 360 degree 'roller coaster' — is
created from two longitudinally coupled scalars — i.e. two whirlpools abutted lengthwise, end to end so to speak. In eastern cosmology there is a
phenomenon that comes tantalizingly close to the description of such a coupling
of whirlpools and it's called a chakra. It was an idea that even Bearden would probably spit
out like a peach pit, but it got my attention. I couldn't prove it — but I couldn't rule it out
A chakra is two longitudinally coupled rotating standing
waves — Bearden again: "To look at its internal attributes, it must be
recognized as a scalar and a vector at the same time. That is, the scalar
attributes must be recognized to be composed on internal vectors." But in this case the vectors are spiraling,
a crucial difference — unlike the sinusoidal transverse model we normally
associate with vectors that translate (i.e. radiate) through space. It's a Hybrid — perfect for the
times. And like a top, the
only way it 'stands' in place is by rotating? It's self organizing!
Like a traffic circle. So
standing waves had to rotate — otherwise they would unwind — perhaps
into vectors? — vectors that
didn't stand in place but that had to translated through space? And for vectors to be able to turn in
circles they first had to spiral?
Like an F-15! Energy can't
be stopped! "Stand and be
counted". Nothing in nature
is still — everything moves, so would whirlpools be natures way of appearing to 'stand still'? "Every-body…stand…
Stand… Staaand!" Yea
The only problem was in nature sometimes these 'chakras'
would couple in all kinds of ways — some with the vortices running right back
up along side or even inside each other.
And the only thing they seemed to have in common was the abutment but
even then they could wrap around from both ends like a spherical 'yin-yang' to
form what appeared as particles. Clearly these were not going to look like the
nice neat linear models in the science lit. There was variety here…attractors and chaos. And it had the potential to come in
infinite variations, bending and twisting in endless ways — function following
form, a whole universe of unique shapes as the potential precursors for the
manifestation of endlessly unique expressions.
I mean you can almost see it. Spirals do stand… but they're flexible
– like our bodies! (ask Dorothy!). Have you ever played Slinky? Have you ever eaten 'chi-zzz'?
Flexible, like a blanket at the beach… like a wave at the
beach! Flexible, like
a fiber optic… like the light in a fiber optic. Actually — according to the Hunt
discoveries…we are 'fiber optics'!
"These are pure waves of Spacetime, and
they are oscillating curvatures of space-time itself."
Yup, Bearden had lopped the scales from my eyes but the
matter was put to rest in my mind when I looked at the writings of one Nikola
Tesla, perhaps the most intuitive inventor of the industrial age and one with a
long track record of creations that are at the heart of today's modern
electrical world. If Bearden was 'Saturn & Uranus' then Tesla was 'Taurus on stilts'. In short, Tesla was no 'dreamer' — he
knew that what he invented was going to work even before it was tested. He had built a working remote
controlled mini-warship before WWI
– a drone – heavens to Afghanistan! And unlike other inventors who toiled at prototypes,
tweaking by trial and error (10,000 lightbulbs later!) Tesla was famous for
inventions that hit the ground running, fresh from his mind like a hot pizza
pie. And mama mia, what
inventions they were! No 'better
bottle openers' here — we're talking grand ideas on an even grander scale. And because of that he was considered
to be something of a freak by his contemporaries who were some of the brightest
thinkers in an age littered with halogen minds. But even they had never seen anything like him! Tesla, obviously… was 'not from these
The following is from a letter he wrote to the New York Times
in 1908… (emphasis mine)
"According to an adopted theory, every ponderable atom
is differentiated from a tenuous fluid, filling all space merely by spinning
motion, as a whirl of water in a calm lake. By being set in movement
this fluid, the ether, becomes gross matter." Clearly Bearden and Tesla were barking up the same tree.
But he didn't stop at mere theory or architecture, he was
looking at practical applications – he wanted to control it, to create with
Again, from the same letter…
"It appears, then, possible for man through harnessed energy
of the medium and suitable agencies for starting and stopping ether whirls
to cause matter to form and disappear."
Clearly Tesla had plans for his 'whirlpool'. And Tesla was a man who knew what to do
with a plan.
So if a man with the stature of Tesla was willing to bet it
all on a whirl then perhaps it behooves us to clear our conceptual workbench,
give him a little credit and take the time to contemplate his view.
As an analogy, a scalar is a system that is expanding or
contracting on a sliding scale in multiple directions simultaneously – IE
it's changing its magnitude.
A vector translates directionally through space — i.e. spatially. So a vector that scales is
a vector that expands or contracts in multiple directions simultaneously while
translating in a specific direction through space. Our hybrid. There is only one method in nature to
accomplish that seamlessly and that is to spiral.
So could it be possible that what are often called 'scalars'
in science may actually be coupled spinning pranic whirlpools composed of spiraling
vectors, kinda like kundalini, and that this awe inspiring movement has not
been adequately characterized?
Even ordinary analog vector signals are difficult to model so a three
dimensional whirlpool — the ultimate compound analog device
– at the level of a scalar, would most definitely be a forbidding
challenge. In any case, should it
surprise us that with spirals being ubiquitous, even iconic in nature, that
there would be a more fundamental equivalent in the scalar world? It would be more surprising if there
weren't. And why is an object so
central to eastern cosmology so conspicuously absent from mainstream western
You'd think energy was confined to railroad tracks and that transverse
sinusoidal waves were the bee's knee's' — the end of the story — in some
frozen, eternal trolley car world.
Something had to shape that hurricane and hurricanes are certainly not
short on energy. i.e.: spiraling
storms don't come from straight lines.
Straight lines do.
In any case, common sense alone should tell us that if you're
going to create a duality from an infinite source, then you need a device to
transition somehow and the dual vortice is the path of least resistance for
doing just that. You could
think of it as an 'etheric fiber optic interface' — or better yet, a sort of
double barreled 'cosmic universal joint' with spiraling bearings and 'three on
the Tree'! I mean, there is
nothing else in nature even remotely up to the job. In fact this vortical movement would be a dimensional
transition or stepping down from an infinite space into 3d space –
Huxley's Reducing valve — where space can appear to 'stand still' — and it is
accomplished in nature with a hybrid movement or standing spiral, also known as
So the dual opposing vortice and/or chakra is the bridge
between the real… the primal space and our world, and back! (the 'real space' race) It is the engine of
creation and destruction — a rotating tug of war between Shiva and
Shakti. As such it requires
a balancing force or Vishnu. But
we don't see Vishnu as he's outside of creation — in the source. Vishnu is the one who twists the valves
of creation to maintain the world. He spins the chakras — tweaks our world in a system so
granular that it's capable of changes so fine as to go virtually unnoticed — or
so sudden as to seem catastrophic.
All things are possible in such a system — and such a system we
seem to have.
Yes… Three on the Tree indeed. Always Three.
The Caduceus, gift of Apollo (the God of light!) was two serpents
wrapped around a central, immovable staff — "thy rod and thy staff!" — and they
are positioned in perfect balance, exactly as the waveforms would be in its
namesake coil just before they would collapse, thus revealing their precious 'information'. On and on…
you name it… always Three. "Thus
the Law of Three is manifested and the spiraling octave is writ
So if the dual opposing vortices would seem to be a 'u-joint'
in the 'real space' race — a 'gnostic tunnel' from one existence to another –
where do we go from here? Well one
could start by going outward — from spinning scalars to orb like particles –
from flowform's to flowers, monochords to musical scores, from minor and major
charkas to trout streams and tornados — from planetary power spots to spiraling
planet tracks — Galactic schematics… it's all there. Its got 'Doors to dimensions' and puzzling paradox –
infinitely granular and coarse beyond belief. It's creative and destructive, capable of instantaneous
change and insidious mission creep… it's all there — east and west, Huxley and
Hermes, chaos and common sense — an 'in your face mystery' a million miles from
everywhere, it's all there… in the 'Blake of an eye' and a hundred mile stare.
It's all there…
But one really begins to appreciate the view when one takes
the opposite journey — inward — beginning with our spiraling vector. If such a phenomenon exists, one would
naturally ask what would lie 'beneath' it or 'behind' it and the answer would
have to be a scalar – but a scalar on a much smaller 'scale'. And that scalar
would in turn be composed of even smaller spiraling vectors composed of still
smaller scalars and on and on — spiraling vectors enfolding spinning scalars
enfolding spiraling vectors on into infinity — Planck Length be damned — an
infinitely enfolding energetic Mandelbrot. And when one contemplates such an infinitely
regressing movement one begins to appreciate that the words 'first movement'
doesn't even begin to express the beginning — that it's all an endless
beginning — it's all a one act play — an infinitely recursive and enfolding one
act play. Thus the 'first
movement' is everywhere you look and pretty soon your sense of time will begin
to attenuate along with your recursive view and on and on.
And a funny thing happens when you take the time to re-read
this article. You'll begin to see
deeper levels of meaning enfolded in each paragraph, sentence and word than the
previous time you read it and then you'll see that the article itself is an
enfolded Mandelbrot and your appreciation for it will deepen and deepen
recursively like your newly enfolding view. And soon you'll look up and see the same thing in every
thing you look at until your view of reality begins to shift and with it
meaning itself will take on a whole new meaning and on and on and on -
beginnings enfolding endings which enfold another beginning until there's no
more beginnings or endings and you just are.
There was one contemporary of Tesla who was not off-put by his 'out of
this world' ideas and his name was Walter Russell. To characterize Russell as a 'Renaissance Man' would be to
not do justice to his being.
Russell was a natural mystic, artist, educator and businessman — the
very prototype of what many would hope to be the practical, fully functioning
enlightened future of humanity.
And the dual opposing vortices were at the heart of his cosmology. Tesla and he were acquainted and
paradoxically, it was Tesla that told Russell to 'bury his ideas for a thousand
years' as humanity was not ready for what he had to express. But as Robert Otey, an authority on
Russell, has pointed out in an on-line interview with Matt Presti, Tesla was not aware of the coming Hunab Ku
in 2012 and the acceleration of time that came with it. But we are.

(and Viktor Schauberger's) scalable spiraling world see this.

alike, it's been a 'long time comin'
