Relationship Synchrony

From fighting fish to sharing love, intense relations engender energetic synchrony.

The Siamese fighting fish is famously territorial. During a fight, males modify their tactics to match their opponent, leading to tightly synchronized battles. This synchrony does not stop at behaviors. Brain activity, even genic expressions within brain cells, synchronize.

Female anglerfish use a bioluminescent lure to attract their meals and mates. The source of anglerfish glow comes from colonies of symbiotic bacteria that dwell in and around their light bulb, called an esca.

Esca precisely strobe on and off via anglerfish control. To accomplish this, an anglerfish communicates with its esca bacteria energetically, as chemical communication would be too slow to signal the millions of luminescent symbionts to act synchronously at sufficient speed.

“Physiological synchrony has been found in a variety of relationships and environments.” ~ American health physiologist Chad Danyluck

Calmly sitting apart from each other a few feet, the heart rate of females rapidly adjusts to that of their male partners. The heartbeat of an infant instantly synchronizes to its mother when she shares a smile with her little loved one. (Babies who don’t tune in to their mothers grow up to be less empathic.)

Whether bird, bat, or human, brainwaves synchronize during communication. The entanglement is energetic.

FieldsĀ are, by definition, a synchrony of waves. Nature expresses its entanglement as a harmony of energy.
