The Ecology of Humans (21) The Energy System

The Energy System

Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. ~ American writer Henry Miller

Cellular communication relies upon chemical reactions. These reactions are changes in electrical charges and molecular electron states. An animal nervous system employs a combination of direct electrical charge transfers and indirect electrical state changes that are chemically expressed molecular transformations.

Every organism, even those lacking an apparent nervous system, has an analogous electrochemical network. These systems are emblematic of the energy permeating Nature. Bioelectrical states are merely the observable subset of an organism’s energetic experience.

We human beings consider ourselves to be made up of “solid matter.” Actually, the physical body is the end product, so to speak, of the subtle information fields which mold our physical body as well as all physical matter. ~ Czech-born Israeli American scientist Itzhak Bentov

The lengyre is the life-force energy gyre that interfaces the physical body via the electrochemical network into extra-dimensional entanglement. Traditional Chinese culture and medicine refers to a lengyre as chi (qi), albeit without direct reference to extra dimensions (ed). The term subtle body is also used for the life-force energy system.

People experience lengyre sensations – their own sense of “energy” – but make no attribution as such because this knowledge is not acknowledged under the facile matterist regime of empirical science. Hence few people are consciously aware of their lengyre, and even fewer appreciate the information provided by the lengyre.

People conscious of their lengyre are sometimes admired for their sensitivity and prescience. Typically, people in post-industrial cultures who acknowledge what they know about the life force are considered “not all there” while actually being more there than most.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action. ~ American dancer and choreographer Martha Graham
