Discoveries on my paths to an expanded awareness...

Steps Ahead

On this page I list those people who are steps ahead of the mainstream in areas I find of particular interest. Their discoveries, knowledge, and talent, while outside the mainstream, will play an ever larger role in the days ahead.

Hans Jenny [1904-1072]

Levitation Of Materials Using Sound

Working in a field he named Cymatics, Hans Jenny induced levitation and orderly movement in various materials using the vibrations of sound. Liquids and semi-solids form dynamic moving shapes in 3 dimensions.  Powders form mandelic shapes, or, lycopodium powder [club moss] rise to swirl in a moving figure 8. Depending on the amplitude of the frequency used, the powder forms into a mound, moving from the surface inward, rising up the center of the mound, then returning down the outside.

Some of the mandelic patterns are amazingly similar to our own ancient mandalas. That makes one wonder what the ancients knew that we have largely forgotten or ignored.

That Jenny was a mystic there is no doubt. Two of his books on this subject [he wrote others] were recently combined into “Cymatics” by MACROmedia. It includes many photographs of his materials in action, although in photographs, of course, you cannot see the dynamic movement in action.

For that, MACROmedia has also published DVDs. Short clips from YouTube are here and here. [Googling Cymatics will bring up videos of others working in the field.]

The potentials this type of work holds can change the way we interact with the physical aspects of our universe . It raises a host of questions for me, including:

  • What is the relationship of the material used to the patterned formed? To the frequency? To the amplitude?
  • If the powder [or material] levitates and flows as in a figure 8, can a filter vibration be introduced that halts the flow but maintains the figure 8 shape and levitation?

A few quotes from Walter Russell:

You may command Nature to the extent only in which you are willing to obey her. You cannot intelligently obey that which you do not comprehend. Therefore I also say, ask of Nature that you may be one with her and she will whisper her secrets to you to the extent in which you are prepared to listen. Seek to be alone much to commune with Nature and be thus inspired by her mighty whisperings within your consciousness. Nature is a most jealous god, for she will not whisper her inspiring revelations to you unless you are absolutely alone with her.

“I have found out that the real essentials of greatness in men are not written in books, nor can they be found in the schools, They are written into the inner consciousness of everyone who intensely searches for perfection in creative achievement and are understandable to such men only.”

“Successful men of all the ages have learned to multiply themselves by gathering thought energy into a high potential and using it in the direction of the purpose intended. Every successful man or great genius has three particular qualities in common. The most conspicuous of these is that their minds grow more brilliant as they grow older, instead of less brilliant. Great men’s lives begin at forty, where the mediocre man’s life ends. The genius remains an ever-flowing fountain of creative achievement until the very last breath he draws. The geniuses have learned how to gather thought energy together to use for transforming their conceptions into material forms. The thinking of creative and successful men is never exerted in any direction other that that intended. That is why great men produce a prodigious amount of work, seemingly without effort and without fatigue. The amount of work such men leave to posterity is amazing. When one considers such men of our times as Edison, Henry Ford or Theodore Roosevelt, one will find the three characteristics I have mentioned common to every one of them.”

“Joy and happiness are the indicators of balance in a human machine, just as a change in the familiar hum in a mechanism immediately indicates an abnormalcy to the practiced ear of the mechanic. An inner joyousness, amounting to ecstasy, is the normal condition of the genius mind. Any lack of that joyousness develops body-destroying toxins. That inner ecstasy of the mind is the secret fountain of perpetual youth and strength in any man. He who finds it finds omnipotence and omniscience.

“I therefore say to you that tiredness and fatigue are effects caused by ignorance of Nature and disobedience to her inexorable law. You may command Nature to the extent only in which you are willing to obey her. You cannot intelligently obey that which you do not comprehend. Therefore I also say, ask of Nature that you may be one with her and she will whisper her secrets to you to the extent in which you are prepared to listen. Seek to be alone much to commune with Nature and be thus inspired by her mighty whisperings within your consciousness. Nature is a most jealous god, for she will not whisper her inspiring revelations to you unless you are absolutely alone with her.”

“The future of great business lies in man’s comprehension of the principle of Balance in Natural Law and his determination to work WITH it instead of against it.”

“The underlying principle of Balance in Nature’s One Law is equality of interchange between the pairs of opposites in any transaction in Nature. That principle must eventually be observed by big business, and the go-getter salesman who selfishly thinks that the sale he makes is the only thing that counts is not giving equally for what he takes.”

“Equal interchange of goods and service between buyer and seller is the keynote of tomorrow’s business world when the vision of the modern business man awakens him to the wisdom of writing that policy into his code of ethics.”

“I will see beauty and goodness in all things. From all that is unlovely shall my vision be immune.”

[Beauty is] “Perfection of rhythm, balanced perfection of rhythm. Everything in Nature is expressed by rhythmic waves of light. Every thought and action is a light-wave of thought and action. If one interprets the God within one, one’s thoughts and actions must be balanced rhythmic waves. Ugliness, fears, failures and diseases arise from unbalanced thoughts and actions. Therefore think beauty always if one desire vitality of body and happiness.”

THINK – Ibm Lecture Series
“Do not attempt to accomplish greater results by a greater effort of your little understanding, but by a greater understanding of your little effort. The greater your understanding of the power within yourself, the less effort you need to make in order to achieve.”

“Man seems to forget that this is a universe of appearances, a universe of illusions, and appearances easily deceive unless one makes allowances for them in every effect of motion.”
“The keystone of the entire structure of the spiritual and physical universe is Rhythmic Balanced Interchange between all opposites.”

“Knowledge in not acquired from without but merely recollected from within. The recollection of knowledge from within is an electro-magnetic process of thinking Mind which is as exactly under man’s control as is the generation of the same power to turn the wheel.”

“The greatest error of science is in relation to space. Science thinks of space either as a void or as an ether through which solids of matter travel. The fact is that space travels with its solids, for each solid is surrounded by a minus zero equal-and-opposite vacuity of the plus zero which we call matter. Matter floats in these insulating spatial counterparts. Positive electricity is accountable for the solids and negative electricity is accountable for the space. All matter comes out of space by the action of positive electricity and is returned to space by the action of negative electricity. White-hot suns come from the blackness of cold space and cold space radiates from hot suns. The matter of space consists of holes surrounded by corpuscular solids, while the matter of solids consists of small dense cores surrounded by vast tenuous holes of space. The very purpose of the hot suns is to act as crucibles for melting the raw materials which the Creator needs for expressing the idea of the universe. Contrarily, the very purpose of space is to cool the melted matter set out in order that it may become conditioned for the complex expressions of Creation. The two-way interchange between spatial holes and material solids is continuous.”

“I always looked for the CAUSE behind things and didn’t fritter away my time analyzing EFFECTS.
ALL KNOWLEDGE EXISTS as CAUSE. And it is simple. It is limited to LIGHT of MIND and the electric wave of motion which records God’s thinking in matter. EFFECT is complex-infinitely complex – but one can have no KNOWLEDGE of effect. One can but be INFORMED of effect. Information is not knowledge. Our educational processes INFORM us but until we have recognized the eternal truth which underlies that information we have no knowledge of it. Like food in the grocery store, it is not nourishment until it is converted to the blood stream. ALL-KNOWLEDGE is possible for anyone – and the Cosmos gives it to him who asks but all information is impossible.”
