TOPIC: NUMBER " 0 " WHEEL OF LIGHT
11-12-13 - NOON MEDITATION DREAM. I was in a city somewhere and my
husband and I met a young blonde woman and she was acting frightened.
We wanted to help her but before we could ask her what her problem was, she
was kidnapped by some men and they pulled her into the back seat of a beige car.
Somehow, we got in front of that car, but then it dropped back a bit and my
husband asked me to read the license plate number.
I said, "It's too far back, I can't see it!"
So, my husband slowed down a bit and the beige car passed us up on the left side
and got ahead of us.
The beige car then came up behind a trash truck and almost hit it and swerved to
miss the truck and when it did, it started to tip over to the left.
We stopped our car and I ran ahead and someone said, "Get her out of there!"
and I grabbed her by the arm and pulled her into our vehicle.
I thought we were going to get into a fight with the men in the other car for
rescuing her, but we seeemd to be okay, and she said to me. "Thank you for
saving me. My number is " 0 " and because of you, I am whole again.

0 (zero; BrE: /ˈzɪərəʊ/ or AmE: /ˈziːroʊ/)
is both a number and
to represent that number in numerals.
It fulfills a central role in mathematics as
the integers, real
and many other algebraic structures.
As a digit, 0 is used as a placeholder in place
In the English language, 0 may be called zero, nought or
(US) naught //, nil,
or — in contexts where at least one adjacent digit distinguishes it from the
letter "O" — oh or o //.
Informal or slang terms for zero include zilch and zip. Ought or aught // has
also been used historically. (SeeNames
for the number 0 in English.)
The word zero came
via French zéro from Venetian zero,
which (together with cypher)
came via Italian zefiro from
Arabic صفر, ṣafira =
"it was empty",ṣifr = "zero", "nothing".
This was a translation of the Sanskrit word shoonya (śūnya),
meaning "empty". The first known English use was in 1598.
In 976 AD the Persian encyclopedist Muhammad
ibn Ahmad al-Khwarizmi, in his "Keys of the Sciences", remarked that if,
in a calculation, no number appears in the place of tens, then a little
circle should be used "to keep the rows". This circle was called صفر (ṣifr,
"empty") in Arabic language. That was the earliest mention of the name ṣifr that
eventually became zero.
Italian zefiro already
meant "west wind" from Latin and Greek zephyrus;
this may have influenced the spelling when transcribing Arabic ṣifr. The
Italian mathematician Fibonacci (c.1170–1250),
who grew up in North Africa and is credited with introducing the decimal
system to Europe, used the term zephyrum.
This became zefiro in
Italian, which was contracted to zero in
As the decimal zero
and its new mathematics spread from the Arab world to Europe in the Middle
Ages, words derived from ṣifr and zephyrus came
to refer to calculation, as well as to privileged knowledge and secret
codes. According to Ifrah, "in thirteenth-century Paris, a 'worthless
fellow' was called a '... cifre en algorisme', i.e., an 'arithmetical
nothing'." From ṣifr also
came French chiffre =
"digit", "figure", "number", chiffrer =
"to calculate or compute", chiffré =
"encrypted". Today, the word in Arabic is still ṣifr,
and cognates of ṣifr are
common in the languages of Europe and southwest Asia.
- Modern usage
different words used for the number or concept of zero depending on the
context. For the simple notion of lacking, the words nothing andnone are
often used, while nought, naught and aught are
archaic and poetic forms with the same meaning. Several sports have specific
words for zero, such as nil in football, love in tennis and a
duck in cricket.
In British English, it is often called oh in
the context of telephone numbers. Slang words for zero include zip, zilch, nada, scratch and
even duck egg or goose

numerals were base 10. They
used hieroglyphs for
the digits and were not positional. By 1740 BCE the Egyptians had a symbol
for zero in accounting texts. The symbol nfr, meaning beautiful, was also
used to indicate the base level in drawings of tombs and pyramids and
distances were measured relative to the base line as being above or below
By the middle of the 2nd millennium BC, the Babylonian
mathematics had a
sophisticated sexagesimal positional
numeral system. The lack of a positional value (or zero) was indicated by a space between
sexagesimal numerals. By 300 BC, a punctuation symbol (two slanted wedges)
was co-opted as a placeholder in
the same Babylonian
system. In a tablet unearthed at Kish (dating
from about 700 BC), the scribe Bêl-bân-aplu wrote his zeros with three
hooks, rather than two slanted wedges.
placeholder was not a true zero because it was not used alone. Nor was it
used at the end of a number. Thus numbers like 2 and 120 (2×60), 3 and 180
(3×60), 4 and 240 (4×60), looked the same because the larger numbers lacked
a final sexagesimal placeholder. Only context could differentiate them.
The concept of zero as a number and not merely a
symbol for separation is attributed to India, where, by the 9th century AD,
practical calculations were carried out using zero, which was treated like
any other number, even in case of division. The
Indian scholar Pingala (circa
5th–2nd century BC) used binary
numbers in the form of short
and long syllables (the latter equal in length to two short syllables),
making it similar to Morse
and his contemporary Indian scholars used the Sanskrit word śūnya to
refer to zero or void.
In 498 AD, Indian
mathematician and astronomer Aryabhata stated
that "sthānāt sthānaṁ daśaguņaṁ syāt" i.e.
"from place to place each is ten times the preceding," which
is the origin of the modern decimal-based place value notation.
The oldest known
text to use a decimal place-value
system, including a zero, is the Jain text from India entitled the Lokavibhâga,
dated 458 AD, whereshunya ("void"
or "empty") was employed for this purpose. The
first known use of special glyphs for
the decimal digits that includes the indubitable appearance of a symbol for
the digit zero, a small circle, appears on a stone inscription found at the Chaturbhuja
Temple at Gwalior in
India, dated 876 AD. There
are many documents on copper plates, with the same small o in
them, dated back as far as the sixth century AD, but their authenticity may
- Rules of
governing the use of zero appeared for the first time in Brahmagupta's
Siddhanta (The Opening of the
in 628 AD. Here Brahmagupta considers not only zero, but negative numbers,
and the algebraic rules for the elementary operations of arithmetic with
such numbers. In some instances, his rules differ from the modern standard.
Here are the rules of Brahmagupta:
- The sum of zero and a negative
number is negative.
- The sum of zero and a positive number
- The sum of zero and zero is zero.
- The sum of a positive and a negative
is their difference; or, if their absolute values are equal, zero.
- A positive or negative number when
divided by zero is a
fraction with the zero as denominator.
- Zero divided by a negative or positive
number is either zero or is expressed as a fraction with zero as
numerator and the finite quantity as denominator.
- Zero divided by zero is zero.
In saying zero
divided by zero is zero, Brahmagupta differs from the modern position.
Mathematicians normally do not assign a value to this, whereas computers and
calculators sometimes assign NaN,
which means "not a number." Moreover, non-zero positive or negative numbers
when divided by zero are either assigned no value, or a value of unsigned
infinity, positive infinity, or negative infinity.

centuries, and Japanese records dated from the eighteenth century, describe

History of Mathematics, the rods "gave the decimal representation of a

Zero was not
treated as a number at that time, but as a "vacant position", unlike the
Indian mathematicians who developed the numerical zero. Ch’in

inheritance of science was largely Greek,
initially from Nestorian Christians
in Persia, but the first influences in astronomy wereHindu. In
773, at Al-Mansur's
behest, translations were made of the Siddhantas, Indian earliest
astronomical treatises dating as far back as 425 B.C.; these versions may
have been the vehicle through which the "Arabic" numerals and the zero were
brought from India into the Muslim
numerals and the positional
number system were introduced around 500 AD, and about 825 AD, it was
introduced by a Persianscientist, al-Khwārizmī, in
his book on arithmetic, which was translated into Latin in
the 12th century under the title Algoritmi
de numero Indorum. This title means "Algoritmi on the numbers of the
Indians", where "Algoritmi" was the translator's Latinization of
Al-Khwarizmi's name. This
book synthesized Greek and Hindu knowledge and also contained his own
fundamental contribution to mathematics and science including an explanation
of the use of zero. It was only centuries later, in the 12th century, that
the Arabic numeral system was introduced to the Western world through Latintranslations
of his treatise Arithmetic.
Records show that the ancient
Greeks seemed unsure about
the status of zero as a number. They asked themselves, "How can nothing besomething?",
leading to philosophical and, by the Medieval period, religious arguments
about the nature and existence of zero and the vacuum.
Theparadoxes of Zeno
of Elea depend in large part
on the uncertain interpretation of zero.
By 130 AD, Ptolemy,
influenced by Hipparchus and
the Babylonians, was using a symbol for zero (a small circle with a long
overbar) within a sexagesimal numeral system otherwise using alphabetic Greek
numerals. Because it was used alone, not just as a placeholder, thisHellenistic
zero was perhaps the first
documented use of a number zero
in the Old World. However, the positions were usually limited to the
fractional part of a number (called minutes, seconds, thirds, fourths,
etc.)—they were not used for the integral part of a number. In laterByzantine manuscripts
of Ptolemy's Syntaxis Mathematica (also
known as the Almagest), the
Hellenistic zero had morphed into the Greek letter omicron (otherwise
Another zero was
used in tables alongside Roman
numerals by 525 (first known
Exiguus), but as a word, nulla meaning
"nothing", not as a symbol. When division produced zero as a remainder, nihil,
also meaning "nothing", was used. These medieval zeros were used by all
future medieval computists (calculators
of Easter). The initial "N" was used as a zero symbol in a table of Roman
numerals by Bede or
his colleague around 725.
without the use of zero (using an empty space in tabular arrangements, or
the word kha "emptiness")
is known to have been in use in India from the 6th century. The earliest
certain use of zero as a decimal positional
digit dates to the 5th century mention in the text Lokavibhaga.
The glyph for the zero digit was written in the shape of a dot, and
consequently called bindu ("dot").
The dot had been used in Greece during earlier ciphered numeral periods.
numeral system (base 10)
reached Europe in the 11th century, via the Iberian
Peninsula through Spanish Muslims,
together with knowledge of astronomy and
instruments like the astrolabe,
first imported by Gerbert
of Aurillac. For this reason, the numerals came to be known in Europe as
"Arabic numerals". The Italian mathematician Fibonacci or
Leonardo of Pisa was instrumental in bringing the system into European
mathematics in 1202, stating:
father's appointment by his homeland as state official in the customs
house of Bugia for the Pisan merchants who thronged to it, he took
charge; and in view of its future usefulness and convenience, had me in
my boyhood come to him and there wanted me to devote myself to and be
instructed in the study of calculation for some days. There, following
my introduction, as a consequence of marvelous instruction in the art,
to the nine digits of the Hindus, the knowledge of the art very much
appealed to me before all others, and for it I realized that all its
aspects were studied in Egypt, Syria, Greece, Sicily, and Provence, with
their varying methods; and at these places thereafter, while on
business. I pursued my study in depth and learned the give-and-take of
disputation. But all this even, and the algorism, as well as the art of
Pythagoras, I considered as almost a mistake in respect to the method of
the Hindus (Modus
Indorum). Therefore, embracing more stringently that method of the
Hindus, and taking stricter pains in its study, while adding certain
things from my own understanding and inserting also certain things from
the niceties of Euclid's geometric art. I have striven to compose this
book in its entirety as understandably as I could, dividing it into
fifteen chapters. Almost everything which I have introduced I have
displayed with exact proof, in order that those further seeking this
knowledge, with its pre-eminent method, might be instructed, and
further, in order that the Latin people might not be discovered to be
without it, as they have been up to now. If I have perchance omitted
anything more or less proper or necessary, I beg indulgence, since there
is no one who is blameless and utterly provident in all things. The nine
Indian figures are: 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. With these nine figures, and with
the sign 0 ... any number may be written.
Here Leonardo of
Pisa uses the phrase "sign 0", indicating it is like a sign to do operations
like addition or multiplication. From the 13th century, manuals on
calculation (adding, multiplying, extracting roots, etc.) became common in
Europe where they were called algorismus after
the Persian mathematician al-Khwārizmī. The most popular was written by Johannes
de Sacrobosco, about 1235 and was one of the earliest scientific books
to beprinted in 1488. Until the
late 15th century, Hindu-Arabic numerals seem to have predominated among
mathematicians, while merchants preferred to use the Roman
numerals. In the 16th century, they became commonly used in Europe.
Long Count calendar developed
in south-central Mexico and Central America required the use of zero as a
place-holder within its vigesimal (base-20)
positional numeral system. Many different glyphs, including this partial quatrefoil——were
used as a zero symbol for these Long Count dates, the earliest of which (on
Stela 2 at Chiapa de Corzo, Chiapas)
has a date of 36 BC. Since
the eight earliest Long Count dates appear outside the Maya homeland, it
is assumed that the use of zero in the Americas predated the Maya and was
possibly the invention of the Olmecs.
Many of the earliest Long Count dates were found within the Olmec heartland,
although the Olmec civilization ended by the 4th century BC, several
centuries before the earliest known Long Count dates.

is an even number, because
it is divisible by 2.
0 is neither positive nor negative. By most definitions 0

In most cultures,
0 was identified before the idea of negative things (quantities) that go
lower than zero was accepted.
The value, or number,
zero is not the same as the digit zero,
used in numeral
systems using positional
notation. Successive positions of digits have higher weights, so inside
a numeral the digit zero is used to skip a position and give appropriate
weights to the preceding and following digits. A zero digit is not always
necessary in a positional number system, for example, in the number 02. In
some instances, a leading
zero may be used to
distinguish a number.

form". That does not simply mean that the limit sought is necessarily
undefined; rather, it means that the limit of f(x)⁄g(x),
if it exists, must be found by another method, such as l'Hôpital's
The sum of 0 numbers is 0,

evaluates to 1.
- In set
theory, 0 is the cardinality of
the empty set: if one does not have any apples, then one has 0 apples.
In fact, in certain axiomatic developments of mathematics from set
theory, 0 is defined to
be the empty set. When this is done, the empty set is the Von
Neumann cardinal assignment for
a set with no elements, which is the empty set. The cardinality
function, applied to the empty set, returns the empty set as a value,
thereby assigning it 0 elements.
- Also in set theory, 0 is the lowest ordinal
number, corresponding to the empty set viewed as a well-ordered
- In propositional
logic, 0 may be used to denote the truth
- In abstract
algebra, 0 is commonly used to denote a zero
element, which is a neutral
element for addition (if
defined on the structure under consideration) and an absorbing
multiplication (if defined).
- In lattice
theory, 0 may denote the bottom
element of a bounded
- In category
theory, 0 is sometimes used to denote an initial
object of a category.
- In recursion
theory, 0 can be used to denote the Turing
degree of the partial
- A zero
of a function f is
a point x in
the domain of the function such that f(x)

- The zero function (or zero map) on a
domain D is
function with 0 as its
only possible output value, i.e., the function f defined

A particular zero function is a zero
morphism in category
theory; e.g., a zero map is the identity in the additive group of
functions. The determinant on
matrices is a zero map.
- Several branches of mathematics have zero
elements, which generalise either the property 0
+ x = x, or
the property 0
× x =
0, or both.
The value zero plays a special role for many physical quantities. For some
quantities, the zero level is naturally distinguished from all other levels,
whereas for others it is more or less arbitrarily chosen. For example, for
temperature (as measured in Kelvin) zero is
the lowest possible value (negative
temperatures are defined but
negative temperature systems are not actually colder). This is in contrast
to for example temperatures on the Celsius scale, where zero is arbitrarily
defined to be at the freezing
point of water. Measuring
sound intensity in decibels or phons,
the zero level is arbitrarily set at a reference value—for example, at a
value for the threshold of hearing. In physics,
energy is the lowest possible
energy that a quantum
system may possess and is the
energy of the ground
state of the system.
Zero has been proposed as the atomic
number of the theoretical
It has been shown that a cluster of four neutrons may
be stable enough to be considered an atom in
its own right. This would create an element with
no protons and
no charge on its nucleus.
As early as 1926,
Professor Andreas von Antropoff coined the term neutronium for
a conjectured form of matter made
up of neutrons with no protons, which he placed as the chemical element of
atomic number zero at the head of his new version of the periodic
table. It was subsequently placed as a noble gas in the middle of
several spiral representations of the periodic system for classifying the
The most common practice throughout human history
has been to start counting at one, and this is the practice in early classic computer
scienceprogramming languages such as Fortran and COBOL.
However, in the late 1950s LISP introduced zero-based
numbering for arrays while Algol
58introduced completely flexible basing for array subscripts (allowing
any positive, negative, or zero integer as base for array subscripts), and
most subsequent programming languages adopted one or other of these
positions. For example, the elements of an array are
numbered starting from 0 in C,
so that for an array of n items
the sequence of array indices runs from 0 to n−1.
This permits an array element's location to be calculated by adding the
index directly to address of the array, whereas 1 based languages
precalculate the array's base address to be the position one element before
There can be
confusion between 0 and 1 based indexing, for example Java's JDBC indexes

uses 0-based indexing.
In databases, it is
possible for a field not to have a value. It is then said to have a null
value. For numeric fields it is not the value zero. For text fields this
is not blank nor the empty string. The presence of null values leads to three-valued
logic. No longer is a condition either true or false,
but it can beundetermined. Any computation including a null value delivers a
null result. Asking for all records with value 0 or value not equal 0 will
not yield all records, since the records with value null are excluded.
pointer is a pointer in a
computer program that does not point to any object or function. In C, the
integer constant 0 is converted into the null pointer at compile
time when it appears in a
pointer context, and so 0 is a standard way to refer to the null pointer in
code. However, the internal representation of the null pointer may be any
bit pattern (possibly different values for different data types).
−0 = +0 = 0, both −0 and +0 represent exactly the same number, i.e., there
is no "negative zero" distinct from zero. In some signed
number representations (but
not the two's
used to represent integers in most computers today) and most floating
pointnumber representations, zero has two distinct representations, one
grouping it with the positive numbers and one with the negatives; this
latter representation is known as negative

- In Formula
One, if the reigning World
Champion no longer
competes in Formula One in the year following their victory in the title
race, 0 is given to one of the drivers of the team that the reigning
champion won the title with. This happened in 1993 and 1994, with Damon
Hill driving car 0, due
to the reigning World Champion (Nigel
Mansell and Alain
Prost respectively) not
competing in the championship.
The modern numerical
digit 0 is usually written as a circle or ellipse. Traditionally, many print
typefaces made the capital letter O more
rounded than the narrower, elliptical digit 0. Typewriters originally
made no distinction in shape between O and 0; some models did not even have
a separate key for the digit 0. The distinction came into prominence on
modern character displays.
zero can be used to
distinguish the number from the letter. The digit 0 with a dot in the center
seems to have originated as an option on IBM
3270 displays and has
continued with some modern computer typefaces such as Andalé
Mono, and in some airline reservation systems. One variation uses a
short vertical bar instead of the dot. Some fonts designed for use with
computers made one of the capital-O–digit-0 pair more rounded and the other
more angular (closer to a rectangle). A further distinction is made in falsification-hindering
typeface as used on German
car number plates by slitting
open the digit 0 on the upper right side. Sometimes the digit 0 is used
either exclusively, or not at all, to avoid confusion altogether.
In the BC calendar
era, the year 1 BC is the first year before AD 1; no room is reserved
for a year
zero. By contrast, in astronomical
year numbering, the year 1 BC is numbered 0, the year 2 BC is numbered
−1, and so on.

WHEEL OF LIGHT
The Wheel of Light
Monthly Newsletter - November 2013
The most significant planetary event this month is the new Moon solar eclipse on
November 3. Eclipses are relatively rare events, taking place about five times
each year. Eclipses can be either at the time of a full Moon (when the earth
blocks the light of the Sun from being reflected by the Moon) or at the new Moon
(when the Moon passes in front of the Sun and blocks some portion of its light
from reaching the Earth). If the new Moon takes place when the Moon is close to
the Earth’s equator, the Moon may entirely block out the solar light. Such is
the case this month when the eclipse will appear as total in the Atlantic Ocean
and into Africa.
Ancient teachings proclaimed eclipses to bring negative events. Just because
something is rare, however, doesn’t mean that it portends something bad. What it
may simply indicate is that something unusual or unexpected will tend to occur
on earth when something rare occurs in the sky. Furthermore, these events are
more likely to take place where the eclipse is strongest or total. Since most of
us don’t live in the Atlantic Ocean or in Africa, we may conclude that
unexpected activities are less likely to happen to us.
The influence of an eclipse may be experienced by people who have a planet or
angle of their natal horoscope activated by the eclipse. This eclipse will be at
eleven degrees of Scorpio. This doesn’t mean that something bad will happen to
these people. It simply suggests they are most likely to experience something
unusual. A clue as to where they might experience something strange could be
reflected by what part of their natal horoscope the eclipse will activate. For
example, if it’s the tenth house it could pertain to career. The seventh would
suggest relationship. The fourth house would activate the home and family.
When an eclipse takes place, the Sun, Moon and Earth are in alignment both in
longitude as well as latitude. Astrologers reference these points as “nodes”.
There is a south node and a north node. This eclipse coincides with the north
node. This is traditionally seen as a time when positive, beneficial events and
opportunities present themselves. Sometimes this can be in the form of
supportive relationships. So those whose horoscopes connect to the eclipse could
also look forward to something positive, if unexpected, taking place. This could
also pertain to leaders of nations. There may an outpouring of public support or
some type of beneficial situation that unexpectedly presents itself. Again, this
would be most likely to effect leaders of African nations or those whose charts
in some significant way correspond to the eclipse.
Another consideration is how long these unexpected events are likely to take
place. The ancient rule is that the effects of a solar eclipse will last in
years the same duration as the eclipse itself lasts in hours. This one will last
about 5 ½ hours. I don’t know anyone who has actually tracked this so I can’t
vouch for it. I can suggest, however, that when Mars or Sun aspect eleven
degrees of Scorpio, an unexpected event might occur well beyond the duration of
the eclipse itself. Interestingly enough, both Mars and the Sun aspect the
eclipse point in August 2014. Stay tuned.
Aries: At times you can be brusque and impulsive. This is a good time to work on
refining your technical skills and becoming more tactful. Growth can come from
noticing ways to improve yourself and then doing the work to do so. Discipline
can be strong in early month and family support can arrive in mid-month.
Taurus: The eclipse could bring emotional clarity about your primary
relationship. Use this as a time to be receptive to and supportive of your
partner. Emotions could be intense and passions run high, so keep your focus on
the developing a deeper connection. Relationship transformation could ensue.
Gemini: There could be tendencies to be self-critical this month. Use this as a
time to work on yourself but don’t get bogged down in extraneous details or
excessive self-undermining behavior. Spending time in quiet contemplation could
Cancer: The eclipse could bring awareness of deep feelings or emotional
connections you have with important people in your life. Let the awareness
percolate for a while. The full Moon on the 17th would be a good time to share
in a more personal, intimate way with others.
Leo: The eclipse could impact your relationship to your family. You could feel a
deep sense of personal responsibility or feel limited and restricted in some
way. Growth comes from not responding to either experience with attempts at
controlling others. React in measured ways and cautious tones.
Virgo: Being authentic and self-affirming can enable you to generate both social
support and professional opportunities. This is a good time to take risks that
you might usually avoid.
Libra: Focus on personal and domestic issues this month. Notice areas where
changing your relationship to yourself or members of your family are required.
The energy is present to make those changes and the timing is perfect. Failure
to make voluntary changes now could lead to extreme or abrupt ones later on.
Scorpio: A lot of energy in your sign this month. Growth comes from being
measured in using it. Strive to avoid the extremes of being too explosive or too
secretive. The former can be intimidating to others while the latter merely
causes others to not realize how sensitive you may be.
Sagittarius: In a time of intense feeling and unexpected events, you might find
this period to be fairly calm and supportive. You could use the energy this
month to do some serious introspection for the purpose of spiritual growth or
emotional clarity. Spending quality time alone would be beneficial.
Capricorn: The eclipse could be useful in the process of working to define who
you are. By extension, notice how your energy affects others. Growth can come
from integrating a sense of well-being and personal fulfillment on your path to
achieving long-range goals.
21 to Feb 19)
Aquarius: Relationship or financial challenges could arise in mid-month. Growth
can come from being neither reactive nor controlling. Striving to see things
from another’s point of view can be beneficial.
Pisces: Your intuition keeps expanding with the potential to bring greater
clarity and wisdom all the time. Being more open about what you perceive is a
good way to be of service to others.

Wheels of Light
From "Wheels of Light: Chakras, Auras, and the Healing Energy of the
Body" by Rosalyn Bruyere
Posted by: DailyOM
In my twenty years as a healer and
teacher, the one question I can count on every new student to ask is
"What's a aura?" From antiquity there has been a myriad of literary and
pictorial descriptions of the aura. Sometimes it has been depicted as a
luminous radiation surrounding the body. Frequently, it has been
pictured as a kind of light around the head -- which some religious
traditions call a halo. Most of us are familiar with paintings of haloed
Christian saints. In earlier Chinese and Japanese art, a single and
sometimes a triple halo surrounds the head of images of the bodhisattva
or Buddha. In ancient Egyptian culture, the aura was often depicted as
wings enfolding the body. In Native American tradition, the radiant aura
of the buffalo has given rise to the legend of the white buffalo. When
Matthew (17:2) describes the transfiguration of Christ, he says that
Jesus's face "did shine as the sun," and "his raiment was white as the
light." Luke (9:29)adds that Jesus's raiment was "glistering." This is a
Biblical description of Christ's aura, which the Apostles Peter, James,
and John were able to see when they were taken by their Master to a
mountain just prior to his crucifixion.
People who are able to see auras have often reported seeing a kind of
luminous radiation surrounding an individual, usually consisting of one
or sometimes several colors. We now know that the aura, or auric field,
relates to the electromagnetic field, which emanates from all matter.
This field of energy, which usually extends five or six inches around
the body, is outside the range of normal vision and in what is sometimes
termed the realm of psychic sight. But even those who can't see the aura
can still have an experience of it. The aura is what keeps us from
bumping our shopping carts into one another in the supermarket. It's
what allows us to sense another's presence in a darkened room, and it's
what makes someone turn to look at us across a crowded room.
This implies that the aura is not just a reflection of light, as might
have been assumed from the literary descriptions and paintings of old.
It is an emanation, a luminous radiation, a field of light or energy
that extends beyond the body to interact with our external environment.
It is an energy system that keeps body and mind alive and healthy, and
may in actuality create them.
The aura itself is generated by the spinning of smaller vortices of
energy located within the body. Different religious traditions have
called these subtle energy centers different things, but the word most
commonly used is chakra from the Sanskrit word meaning "wheel of light."
These seven chakras are who and what we are, what we feel and how we
think and change. They are how we express ourselves and how we create.
Although we as Westerners have no cognitive awareness of its energies,
the chakra system is precisely the means by which we gain awareness. It
is how we experience life, how we perceive reality, and how we relate to
self, others, and the world, It is life itself.
As we explore the aura and the chakras, it is important for us to view
our journey not as revolutionary, but rather as very traditional.
Chakras, as well as auras and electromagnetic fields, are as old as the
earth itself. The chakra system, in fact, is a part of the ancient and
lost mysteries. And, in the end, the chakra system in our bodies is how
we find our way back to the most ancient mystery of all -- God, the
Oneness, the Omniscient.
The majority of what I know about the chakra system has come directly
from my twenty years of experience as a healer and aura reader. As a
young healer and psychic, when I would look at another's auric field, I
would notice that some areas were darker than others, or that there were
"holes" in the aura. I came to understand that those holes were
indications of ill health or predictive of illness to come. When I put
"energy" into a body and watched its movement, I observed that adding
energy to one part of the body reveals how the body uses energy, and
therefore how healthy it is. I watched people think, I watched them
feel. I saw that these "patterns" correspond to their disease. From this
experience I learned that we can suppress information in the body or in
the chakra system, but we can never eliminate it. We can alter that
information by the way we move or the way we think. Even if we make a
slight change in behavior, it precipitates change in every other aspect
of our lives. That was when I began to view the aura as a reflection of
a person's entire well-being.
I had grown up seeing auras. Though some people consider psychic or
"second" sight a spiritual gift, psychism runs in my family and was
never considered a "gift." It was a "knowing" that allowed family
members to assist one another in times of imminent disaster.
I was raised by my grandmother and great-grandmother, Nana. It was Nana
who taught me to see auras around plants, although she never used that
term. She would say, "Do you see the light? What color is it? Do you see
that the light on the plant is increasing?" She told me that cuttings
taken from a plant on which light was increasing would take root, but
that cuttings taken from a plant on which light was decreasing wouldn't
root. Then she'd have me do experiments in which I'd take cuttings from
different plants, some with a full bright aura, others with a
diminishing auric field, so I could discover for myself the truth of her
teachings. So it was that in a very practical way I learned from Nana to
"see" auric light and energy and to identify what was "full of light" as
that which was also "full of life."
When I was six, Nana's husband, Mickey, died. But she continued to have
communication with him. Nana's ability to see the light around plants
had been viewed by the less psychic family members as a benign
idiosyncrasy. But as Nana began to share with the rest of the family
more and more of what Mickey was "saying," they became alarmed. Her
conversations with the dead came to be viewed as an indication of
increasing mental instability. Fearing my great-grandmother was having a
nervous breakdown, the family had her hospitalized, and Nana was given
electroshock treatments. When she returned home, she no longer conversed
with Mickey -- nor did she take me into the garden anymore to see the
plants. Witnessing what had happened to Nana, I decided that if I was to
avoid her experience I had better forget about seeing any more light
around plants. And, at the age of seven, I did.
Then, in my early twenties, I married and had children, who began to
speak about the "colored fuzz" around people. Their ability to "see"
auras restimulated my own. In order to raise them responsibly, I was
forced to seek out the teachers who could help me make sense of our
experiences. My studies not only helped me make sense of those
experiences but introduced me to their practical applications. I was
taught rudimentary healing techniques, which I sometimes practiced on my
friends. I had no intention of becoming a healer, but, as the people I
"treated" began to feel better and talk about it, I found that that's
what I had become.
When people came to me, I would explain what an aura was and how I saw
their disease, and so I developed a reputation as an aura reader, too.
One day a woman phoned, identifying herself as a healer. She asked if
she could bring a client to my home and requested me to tell her what I
saw in the aura of the client as she worked. I was completely unprepared
for what transpired that day. Rather than laying-on-of-hands, which was
the healing method I had been taught, Emilie Conrad Dàoud used chanting
and dancing in a very involved process. At the end of that process I
told her what I had seen aurically. She then took that information to
Dr. Valerie Hunt, who was at that time the Chairman of the Department of
Kinesiology at UCLA. Dr. Hunt was researching the same process that we
were, but from the viewpoint of a kinesiologist. Eventually I was asked
to work in collaboration with both of them.
Dr. Hunt had received a grant to study Structural Integration, or
rolfing (a technique for reshaping and realigning the body through deep
manipulation). During the course of this project (which I will refer to
throughout the book as The Rolf Study), we were able to measure the
frequencies of the human energy field and discovered that these
frequencies correlated with the frequencies of visible light. From that,
we concluded that what science had been calling the human energy field,
or the mind field, and what religious traditions had been calling the
auric field were one and the same. Furthermore, the results of our
research provided evidence that this large electromagnetic energy field
is in fact generated by the smaller internal vortices of energy I
mentioned earlier -- the chakras, the source of the human aura.
Around that same time, other scientists too were coming to the
conclusion that the mind is not in the brain, but that it is an energy
field in and around the body. New techniques such as Kirlian photography
and biofeedback also pointed to the possibility of such a relationship.
Wilder Penfield's The Mystery of the Mind, Karl Pribram's Languages of
the Brain, Dr. Robert O. Becker's The Body Electric, W. A. Tiller's
work, and the auric field research of Dr. Hunt all shed light on the
connection between chakras, auras, and the mind. Similar, and in some
cases more thorough, research had been in progress in the Soviet Union
since the 1920s.
Our research at UCLA was significant on more than one level. It was
perhaps the first attempt made in our country to examine an electrical
manifestation, a magnetic field phenomenon, as connected to the healing
process. Prior to that time, laying-on-of-hands healing had been viewed
as a psychological, not an energetic process. Our research was important
in that it was a meaningful attempt to correlate the body's natural
frequency ranges with the spiritual world.
As a result of being involved with this research, I realized that in
reading the aura I was looking at an aspect of mind, not in the
intellectual sense but in terms of a definition that embraces all of
consciousness -- the physical, the emotional, and the spiritual, as well
as the intellectual. If the aura is an indication of a person's entire
well-being, then the overall health of an individual is influenced by
the way in which he or she lives his or her life. Thus, physical
exercise, diet, meditation, and other spiritual practices, what and how
we think as well as what we feel or don't feel, are all influential
factors in determining how healthy -- or ill -- we are.
Health is generally defined as the absence of disease, but this is
really an unsatisfactory definition. The word "health" means
"wholeness." Health implies much more than freedom from disease. A
complete definition of health must include vitality, appropriate
feelings, clear thinking and reasoning, and a willingness to embrace
change. Responsibility and creative self-expression, intuitive
understanding and a vital spiritual life are also essential if we are to
be whole and healthy. In his sermon on the mount, Jesus tells the
multitude "Ye are the light of the world" (Matthew 5:14)and challenges
them to let their light shine before men (Matthew 5:16). The light that
shines forth from each of us -- the kind and quality of light generated
by the chakras and reflected in the colors of our auric fields -- is a
reflection of our state of health and our condition of wholeness. Thus,
I came to understand that our definition of health needs to become "full
Not long after my involvement with The Roll Study, I had an opportunity
to put those research findings into practice and to learn even more,
this time from the Native American culture, when I was asked to heal one
of the Hopi tribal elders, Grandfather David Monongya. He was in Los
Angeles to raise consciousness regarding the strip mining at Big
Mountain, site of one of the first conflicts over the Hopi-Navajo tribal
land. Grandfather David had cataracts. I laid hands on his body and very
quickly moved to his head and laid hands on his eyes. He seemed to know
exactly what I was doing. About the time I was actually beginning to
accomplish something that I felt was healing, he said, "Oh, I see much
better now. Please sit down." Of course I had not healed him, and in a
manner of speaking, as it turned out, I ended up receiving a healing
from him. He called to two or three other people in the house, and we
listened for five hours as he related the Hopi prophecy. (See Appendix
II for a summary of the Hopi prophecy.) I was stunned by the
similarities between the story of the Apocalypse in Revelation and the
predictions for the "end time" in Hopi.
I began to compare different cultures with different religious
traditions as a way of finding other similarities in their teachings and
sacred mysteries. The more I studied, the more I found varied cultural
references to the chakra system. Shortly after my meeting with
Grandfather David, I made a journey to the Holy Land. There I found that
the chakra system as I knew and understood it meant something different
once I was removed from my own culture and cultural heritage. I
discovered that the light -- the aura -- and the meaning of the auric
colors often differed from culture to culture. In Western society,
people tend to think in yellow, daydream in blue, change in green, and
get angry in red. While this tendency is not absolute, it is generally
consistent. In traveling six hundred miles up the Egyptian Nile I never
saw blue or yellow in the auras of Islamic people; I also noticed that
aurically their thought process seemed to closely resemble that of the
Native American people whom I had observed. Once in Israel, I again saw
yellow auric fields, an observation that led me to believe that Israelis
tend to "think" more like Europeans and Americans. From these
experiences I began to comprehend why, in the Middle East, Israelis and
Arabs do not seem to understand each other's way of thinking and why, on
our own continent, the Native Americans and nonindigenous peoples fail
to understand each other's ways. These observations led me to question
whether or not the practices of different religions and particularly
prayer positions change the auric colors. I especially began to wonder
whether thought was something other than logic as we know it in the
Once I began to explore things in this way, it followed that if an
entire culture's thought process was dominated by a particular chakra
color, that culture would process reality through that dominant chakra.
In other words, since each chakra has a particular "viewpoint," a
culture would tend to "see" reality through the "eyes" of that chakra.
Furthermore, because each chakra is directly related to a specific area
of the body, certain positions and postures of the body would enhance
the dominance of one or two colors while inhibiting others. In Islam,
for instance, a Moslem bows on a prayer rug, with his knees on the
ground. He then puts his forehead (more specifically, his "third eye")
on a point that is usually a design on the rug. This posture directs
focus to the area around the navel and around the forehead, making the
second (orange) and sixth (purple) chakras dominant.
As one chakra center becomes predominant in a given culture, that chakra
"colors" the values, assumptions, and prejudices of that society. This
in turn often creates a prevailing one-mindedness or dogmatism. Such
narrowness of vision has often determined the characteristics of a
culture and the course of an era.
As far as I can tell, Native Americans are the only people who have a
natural relationship with the chakra system that has not been
dogmatized. As a result, they have not made any chakras right or wrong,
good or bad, hot or cold, more important or less important. They have
not had to make their world view fit that of Christianity, Judaism,
Islam, Hinduism, or Buddhism. Whereas these religions have evolved
priesthoods that have both written in and written out various ideas over
the centuries, the Native Peoples have an attitude that all the chakra
centers are good, valid, and important. These people, who, by their own
accounts, have lived here for fifteen thousand years, have had a working
knowledge of the body's energy system since that time. They also have
maintained a tradition of practices, rituals and ceremonies that affect
those energy centers.
I have been greatly influenced by the traditions and ways of these
peoples. Furthermore, because of my ability to see the effect they have
on us, I have been deeply moved to learn their ways and ceremonies and
to include them in my work. I do not see these practices as being in
conflict with anything else I know religiously. I view them as part of
understanding religion. Like the Native Americans, I believe the energy
field of the earth itself resonates up through our bodies, which is why
I think it is natural for me to worship as a Native person would.
Practicing religion with the plants, the herbs, and the animals that
exist where I am makes me more connected and more ecologically
responsible to the ground upon which I live, and I find the simplicity
with which one can pray with what naturally occurs around him absolutely
as it should be.
The more I studied Native American culture as well as the ancient
traditions of the Egyptians and Greeks, the philosophies of the Hindus,
and the religions of the East, the more I realized the potential value
of the chakra system as a means of understanding life and energy and the
symbolic relationship between them. As a young teacher of this material,
I kept trying to find a textbook from which to teach. I found none. The
few books available presented their own unique theories and ideas and
were generally contradictory of one another. This book in many ways is
an attempt to create a source that pulls those ideas together, and that
correlates the wisdom of the ages with modern scientific thought, so
that others may come to know the energy and light of life. In so doing,
I had to face the fact that this material has no beginning and no end;
it is evolving, a work in progress, as is the human race.
I am writing this text primarily for Americans, mainly for students of
healing. If it serves its purpose, it will become obsolete. Those who
study the chakra system will acquire an understanding of it and will
then be able in their own individual ways to add to it the knowledge
they accumulate through their own experience. This book is merely a
foundation from which a greater structure is certain to arise.
It is my hope that those who read this book will find, as I have,
support and validation for many aspects of themselves. My study of the
chakra system has allowed me to develop many elements of my own being,
without having to sacrifice one for the other. I have been able to
embrace motherhood and the ministry, art and engineering; I have been
allowed wholeheartedly and without conflict to live up to my resolution
to pursue the spiritual in science and science in the spiritual.
In seeking the scientific in the spiritual, I have clearly been
influenced by my early scientific background. I have searched for
whatever validating "empirical" data I could find. Until recently,
though, chakras have had little validation in the scientific world.
Nevertheless, these powerful energy centers have been spinning,
creating, and recording their symbolic reality since the beginning of
In antiquity, before science and religion were divided into separate,
antagonistic camps, the chakras were an integrated part of daffy life.
Not only were they an aspect of spiritual tradition and practice, but as
a reflection of the natural laws of the greater macrocosm they were also
at the root of the ancient sciences as well. The people of antiquity
(the Egyptians, Chinese, Hindus, Greeks, and, in our own country, the
Native Americans) knew of these phenomena, although they may have called
them by different names. Furthermore, these peoples attempted to
preserve and transmit this knowledge through teachings and sacred
ceremony. Within that ceremony one was taught to quiet bodily functions
and to silence the mind long enough to observe one's own internal
silence, wherein one could become aware of the presence, reality, and
power of the chakras, of the flows of energy moving through one. Then,
when the Dark Ages descended upon the world, both the scientific and
religious traditions of old were forced into the dark recesses of
secluded rooms and secret chambers.
As each of the ancient civilizations was conquered -- the Egyptian, the
Chinese, the Greek, the Roman -- vast libraries were burned and within
the fires were consumed massive volumes of antiquarian and esoteric
wisdom. It is no mistake that the period that followed was termed the
Dark Ages. By the time the light shone again, science and religion had
become enemies, and common knowledge of the chakra system had become an
These mysteries, however, were preserved by sacred priesthoods and
transmitted to select initiates throughout the ages. In our own culture
the Native Americans have preserved these ideas through oral tradition.
Moreover, it was prophesied by nearly every ancient culture that there
would be a future time when this "lost" knowledge would be rediscovered.
That which is a mystery shall no longer be so, and that which has been
veiled will now be revealed; that which has been withdrawn will emerge
into the light, and all men shall see and together they shall rejoice.
The future that was prophesied has come. This new age that is dawning is
the time wherein the ancient mysteries shall be once more revealed.
It has taken thousands of years, but within this century scientists and
spiritual seekers alike have once again begun to view the laws of nature
and the laws of God as reflections of the same truth. It is this
viewpoint that has allowed for scientific investigations into the nature
of the chakra system and the aura and the relationship between them and
The "Mysteries" of the Chakras
As we have said, the aura or electromagnetic field that emanates from
all matter usually consists of one or sometimes several colors. The
colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and white, with
variations in shades and mixes, but all have a luminous glow that comes
from the life-giving energy that is the auric field.
These auric field colors are very specifically related to the chakras.
My experience indicates that each chakra has four discernible
characteristics that functionally affect the aura: color, size and
shape, rotation or spin, and intensity (which is a function of the
"openness" and thus the amount of energy that is produced by the chakra;
although a chakra in actuality cannot be "open" or "closed," these terms
are frequently used in discussions about the chakras in reference to the
amount of energy actually being produced by any given chakra at any
given time). It is out of these characteristics that the aura is
generated. As a chakra spins, it produces its own electromagnetic field,
which combines with the fields generated by the other chakras to produce
what we call the auric field. The amount of energy produced by a
particular chakra (or group of chakras) determines the color that
dominates the auric field. Thus, in a person in a highly emotional state
when the second chakra is dominant, the auric field is predominantly
orange, while one who is in a state of high creativity (utilizing the
fifth chakra) will generally have an auric field that is predominantly
This auric field is also related to the mind. When most of us think of
the mind, we immediately think of the brain. Recently, however, science
has begun to postulate that the mind is not in the brain. Specifically,
thought and memory seem to exist throughout the body, memory being
logged primarily within the body's fascia or connective tissue.
Furthermore, thought itself can also be described as a form of energy.
Although in scientific terminology energy is strictly defined as "the
capacity for doing work," I use it throughout this book to denote the
various frequencies and magnitude of oscillations within a dynamic
electromagnetic field -- in the form of either potential or kinetic
Kinetic energy is energy in movement within either a static or dynamic
electromagnetic field. A field is considered static until the intensity
of either the electric or the magnetic field is varied. A dynamic
electromagnetic field consists of oscillations of a specific frequency
or wavelength; a more complex field may have several frequencies. In a
dynamic field, the magnitude of the oscillations determines the
intensity of the field, or the amount of energy being carried in the
field. The frequency and wavelength determine the "color" of the
propagation. (Propagation is a term used to describe the extension or
transmission of sound waves or of electromagnetic radiation through air
or water. I So when we refer to the energy moving from chakra to chakra,
or through the body, it is understood that this energy is being carried
by moving electromagnetic fields. When we refer to "color of energy"
(or, sometimes, frequency), we mean the color of the energy or chakra,
as defined by the wavelength of electromagnetic radiation being emitted
at that location, as perceived by those who have second sight.
The sum of potential and kinetic aura is always constant. The law of
conservation holds that energy can neither be created nor destroyed.
Thus, energy cannot be extracted from or added to an electromagnetic
field without a corresponding change in the field. A thought then can be
referred to as a potential or static electromagnetic field pattern. On
the other hand, the thinking process represents a continually changing
or dynamic electromagnetic field. As thought changes from a static to a
dynamic field, it imparts energy to and receives energy from the thinker
during the course of the thinking process. When the process ends, the
resultant thought is stored (a memory) as a static electromagnetic field
pattern in the auric field. Clearly the mind, the aura, and the
electromagnetic chakra system are inseparably interrelated.
Perhaps, as past sages and most Eastern and mystery religions have
believed, history is not linear but cyclical. Even Pythagoras and Plato,
themselves initiates of the mystery schools, embraced this view of
history as well as the cyclical evolution of mankind. If this is so,
then ancient wisdom and modern scientific thought are not as far apart
in the time-space continuum as we may have once believed. In the words
of Fritjof Capra:
A dramatic change of concepts and ideas has occurred in physics during
the first three decades of the century. Still being elaborated in our
current theories of matter, the new concepts have profoundly changed our
world view from the mechanistic thinking of Descartes and Newton to a
holistic and ecological view....It is...not surprising that the new
vision of reality comes very close to the views of mystics of all ages
and traditions and, in particular, to the views held in the spiritual
traditions of India. Ten years ago, I was amazed to find the most
striking parallels between modern physics and Eastern mysticism. These
parallels can now be extended with equal justification to biology,
psychology and other sciences. We now can say, with considerable
confidence, that the ancient wisdom of the East provides the most
consistent philosophical background to our modern scientific theories.
Astrologically, the age of Aquarius is reputed to be the age of the
common man. When in the ancient world it was foretold that this age of
Aquarius would be the time when all the ancient "lost" mysteries and
their importance would be revealed to the common person, a seed of hope
for the future of the planet was sown. Now the season of harvest has
It is significant that one of the last two discovered planets, Uranus
(called the "erratic revolutionary"), was first sighted not by a
scientist viewing the stars from an observatory on high, but by a simple
curious stargazer observing the heavens through his own domestic
telescope. Esoteric knowledge that was lost in the flames that consumed
the great library of Alexandria is being rediscovered within the
laboratories of modern science. Things that were mysterious five
thousand years ago in Egypt are now being taught to children in their
first physics class.
"The secret mysteries of the People," foretold the Hopis a thousand
years ago, "shall be made known when the sons of White men wear beads
and long hair. The truth of these Sacred Ways shall be revealed when the
Eagle lands on the moon." Any of us who remember the sixties and NASA's
moon flights know that these events have already come to pass.
If the ideas contained within this book are difficult and challenging,
it may assist us to remember that others before us were likewise
challenged. Perhaps, most importantly, it would be worth our time and
energy to think about what the rediscovery of these ideas could mean for
us both personally and globally. These ancient, now reborn, mysteries
may very well provide the kind of wisdom we need to guide us through the
fears, disease, and darkness of a nuclear world into a new age of hope
and understanding, health and light. The very survival of the race may
depend on the ability of each of us to embrace new ways of thinking and
being and to adopt both a traditional and revolutionary path.
It is my hope that you will view this book with a sense of exploration,
as an adventure into your own personal undiscovered realms. I would also
hope that at the end of the journey you will have begun to grow in
health and fulfillment because you will have come closer to embracing
the totality of yourself with love and understanding.
Let us begin now to unravel some of these ancient and sacred mysteries.

The sutta concludes with the following passage:
So in that instant, at that very moment, the word traveled up to the
realm of the high divinities. This ten-thousandfold world system
trembled and shook and resounded, and a great measureless radiance,
surpassing the shining glory of the devas, was made manifest in the
Then the Blessed One uttered the pronouncement: “It is Kondañña who
has seen deeply! Kondañña who has seen deeply.” And so it was that
the name of Venerable Kondañña became “Kondañña the deep seer.”
Ajahn Sucitto explains the first part of this passage as follows:
In The Discourse That
Sets Turning the Wheel of Truth, the Buddha’s teachings were set
rolling and produced a great light. It’s a light that is said to
have radiated through the ten-thousandfold world system: from the
twenty brahma realms of the highest divinities all the way down
through the eight hells. Even down there, according to the accounts,
it was a great moment too. In those places of utter gloom, there was
an illumination by which the poor wretches could see that there were
other beings in the same predicament. By the standards of those
places, this was a burst of light. For a moment, some sense of not
being alone in the mess lessened the intensity of it. Others have
been here, and are here, now. It’s good to remember this. This light
has this broad focus and also is long lasting. It continues to shine
today. Once again, if we translate cosmological events into events
in consciousness, the light that we’ve seen glowing throughout the
discourse is the light of wisdom...
Ajahn Sucitto explains the second part of this passage ("It is Kondañña
who has seen deeply!") as follows:
At this time, the Buddha himself makes no mention of all the shining
and shaking going on; more to the point, he was more concerned that
the Dhamma he had taught had triggered a realization in Kondañña’s
mind. If this could be communicated to one person, then there was no
reason why it couldn’t be communicated to another. A big wheel of
light—encompassing ethics, meditation, and wisdom—had started
shining. This was a beginning, and it encouraged the Buddha to
continue and develop his teaching.
ZERO POINT ENERGY
The Hutchison Effect
Canadian inventor John Hutchison is credited with the discovery of a
highly-anomalous electromagnetic effect which causes the jellification
of metals, spontaneous levitation of common substances, and other
effects resulting from what is believed to be a very complex scalar-wave
interaction between electromagnetic fields and matter.
It wasn't until 1996 that another of Tesla's inventions was figured
out: The first Zero Point electromagnetic radiation energy patent
was issued to Dr. Frank Mead on Dec. 31, 1996. Patent no.
5,590,031 made history as Dr. Mead of Edwards Air Force Base designed
spherical receivers to access zero point electromagnetic radiation.
These receiving devices that convert neutrinos, gamma rays, tachyons to
electricity require very high frequency receiver technology. Dr. Mead
grapples with the high frequencies that may extend up to 10 to the 40th
Hz (cycles per second).
To get an idea of the dimensions of these high zero point
frequencies, gigahertz radar is only 10 to the 10th Hz. Visible light is
about 10 to the 14th Hz and gamma rays reach into the 10 to the 20th
powers where the wave length is smaller than an atom. It appears very
small particle devices are necessary to access these very high frequency
zero point energy particles. Dr Mead is interested in working with
single particles like protons or neutrons that may only be slightly
different by only parts per trillion.
Again read carefully articles on the secrets of Tesla's electric
Pierce-Arrow finally revealed, page 18 of vol 8 no 3 in the recent
blockbuster issue of Electrifying Times. This special issue bares all
about revolutionary suppressed free energy technology. It took a year to
gather all this information to put in one issue.
Nicola Tesla was the first human on planet earth to build a zero
point energy receiving device and convert it to electricity to power his
electric Pierce-Arrow. Zero point electromagnetic radiation energy may
potentially be used to power interplanetary craft as well as provide for
society's electric power needs.
This technology has remained unharnessed as far as mainstream science
is aware. Although a few private inventors besides Nikola Tesla have had
successes tapping into the Zero Point electromagnetic energies, their
technology has been highly suppressed. Inventors labs have been raided
Dr. Marc Millis of NASA's new Breakthrough Propulsion Physics
Research Program has published articles relating to Zero Point Space
Drives. "Challenge to Create the Space Drive" (J. Prop. & Power, V.13.
No. 5, 1997, p. 577). In it Dr. Millis states, "Electromagnetism is also
suggested as a target phenomenon for space drive research because of
ZPF. (Zero Point Field) ZPF is also an electromagnetic phenomenon and
discovering a way to react with ZPF would likely create a space drive"

Tesla and a number of other European scientists had been pioneers in
the conversion of circumscribed small-area antigravity fields out of
electromagnetic fields. Tesla wrote about the theories behind the
distortion or manipulation of a gravitational field through the
propagation of electromagnetic waves.
Excerpted from "Beyond
The Illusion" website...
In the summer of 1995, Hutchison puzzled onlookers by
sitting on the curb and picking out stones, Why would a
rockhound sort through ordinary street rocks?
What the neighbors do not know is that John Hutchison is
well-known in new-energy circles, and is even known to some who
move in the circles of established science. His visitors have
included distinguished physicists. But unlike Shoulders and
Lambertson, he is a self-taught scientist. As a boy in
Vancouver, he read about Nikola
Tesla and then
startled neighbors with Tesla coil experiments in his backyard.
While in his twenties, he developed a medical problem that
resulted in his living on a small disability pension. For years,
he lived a generally reclusive life, digging for rare electrical
equipment in military surplus stores and junkyards, and carrying
his finds home on the city bus. Apart from time spent as a
volunteer at a local ecology center, he spent hours in his
bedroom-turned-laboratory, patiently rebuilding equipment. He
considered opening a museum.
Antigravity and the Hutchison Effect
Hutchison's life changed drastically in 1979 when, upon
starting up an array of high-voltage equipment, he felt
something hit his shoulder. He threw the piece of metal back to
where it seemed to have originated, and it flew up and hit him
again. This was how he originally discovered the Hutchison
effect. When his Tesla coils, electrostatic generator, and other
equipment created a complex electromagnetic field, heavy pieces
of metal levitated and shot toward the ceiling, and some pieces
What is the Hutchison effect? As with much of the
new-energy field, no one can say for sure. Some theorists think
the effect is the result of opposing electromagnetic fields
cancelling each other out, creating a powerful flow of space
Beyond the Hutchison Effect:
The Dirt Cheap Energy Converter
Hutchison moved beyond the Hutchison effect and into the
field of space energy, and had acquired a Canadian business
manager. In 1994, Hutchison built a working space energy device
about the size of a microwave oven. The Hutchison Converter was
based on Tesla's resonance principle. Tesla demonstrated this
principle by steadily pulsing bursts of energy into his electric
coils, each burst coming before energy from the previous burst
had time to die away. This led to higher and higher amounts of
energy, like a child going higher and higher on a swing.
Hutchison captured the same pulsing, rhythmic energy by
using crystals of barium
titanate, a material that can capture the pulses of certain
electromagnetic frequencies in the way that a radio can pick up
certain radio frequencies. When the crystal pulses, or
resonates, it produces electric power.
The converter put out six watts, enough to power a motor
that kept a small propeller spinning furiously. The whirring of
a tiny propeller looks rather silly, until one realizes that the
apparatus contains no batteries, no fuel, and no connection to a
power outlet. It works continuously for months.
One day while experimenting, Hutchison cracked a crucial
part and decided to take the unit apart.
He built a smaller, more portable model. Resembling an
Oscar statue in size and shape, the portable converter put out
slightly more than a watt of power. It lit a tiny lamp as a
demonstration and also ran a small motor.
In front of an audience of about 500 Hiroshima residents,
Hutchison slapped the device onto a table lit by the bright
lights of a television crew. He quickly unscrewed all the parts
and revealed its inner details, while the camera zoomed in for a
closeup and a pair of chopsticks provided a scale to show the
size of the device. It was clear that the converter contained no
batteries. Afterward, men crowded around Hutchison, offering him
their business cards and asking him to sell them a supply of barium
Back home, Hutchison's business advisor fretted that the
inventor had given away his secrets. But Hutchison shrugged his
shoulders; he had gone beyond the prototype technology he had
taken to Japan. He now had a new secret - the stovetop process
he called Dirt Cheap because the ingredients included common
The new process grew out of his use of barium
titanate. He wondered, "Why can't I make a material that
works even better?" Hutchison knew that other researchers had
put electrodes on certain rocks to show that the rocks generated
a tiny electric current, somehow soaked up from the cosmos.
So Hutchison sorted through small stones on the street in
front of his apartment and threw them into a test tube-sized
metal container. Next, he added a mixture of low-cost, common
chemicals, he won't reveal which ones and put this rock soup on
the stove to simmer. This allowed water to evaporate and tiny
pockets of air to rise from the stones so that the chemicals
could enter them. Before the mixture cooled into a solid, he
added specially treated posts to draw electricity from the
crystal-like substance th at had formed. Again, no one is
entirely sure as to how the Dirt Cheap method works, although
one physicist told Hutchison that the Casimir effect, used by
Ken Shoulders to create charge clusters, may be at work.
When he first discovered his Dirt Cheap process, Hutchison
didn't bother to patent it. He had heard from other inventors
how their laboratories had been vandalized and their property
had been stolen once the Patent Office had been notified, and he
was not eager to be the first inventor to take a bold step by
manufacturing a large home- or factory-sized unit that could
restructure industries. Besides, in the 1980s - when he was
still working with the Hutchison effect - he had received a few
threatening comments from strangers.
How could Hutchison enjoy his peaceful life and still get
a space energy product to the public in a low-key manner? He
says he has hit upon an unusual strategy: building miniature
flying saucers powered by Dirt Cheap-supplied electricity, and
selling them as space-energy children's toys. Hutchison hopes an
environmentally safe toy that lights up without batteries will
intrigue the public into buying Dirt Cheap devices that could
power large appliances. And perhaps, the Dirt Cheap process
could help lead to a world of nonpolluting new energy.

ZERO POINT REALITY
I mentioned earlier that there were several reasons why
participatory time travel hasn’t been possible before. Another
reason that your highest mystics and scientists have had limited
success in this venture is the nature of your 3-D locus itself.
For in order to travel independently in time you need to have at
least a 5th dimensional locus. You need to be grounded in a
simultaneous perspective that is vast enough that your
now-moment can embrace eons of linear time in an infinite
variety of parallel dimensions. A very few ascended masters in
your history have achieved this, but not very many. This, my
friends, is what you are emerging into as a species.
The cusp of the 21st century is an exciting time for you to be
living in. I do not wish to repeat here what the more intuitive
ones among you have already attuned to, so I will simply say
that yes, you are at the threshhold of an awesome collective
event, a "birthing" if you will, a "shift of the ages", a Zero
Point long foretold and long awaited not only by shamans and
prophets on Earth but throughout the infinite galaxies. For
reasons that will become clear to you, what is taking place on
Earth now is creating a ripple effect through all Creation. A
whole new cycle of evolution is beginning through all the
God-universes, and this little planet called Earth has a key
role to play in it, which incidentally, is why you have such a
wide gallery of spectators observing you at this time. It has to
do with the fact that some of the highest beings in Creation are
currently incarnate on Earth, along with the most diverse array
of lifeforms and origins ever assembled, all incarnate in
physical density in a great experiment of unification.
Those of you who have had experiences of unity-consciousness
will know that it is no great effort to experience Oneness with
the All on the higher dimensions, while it is here on 3-D Earth
with its infinite diversity and polarity consciousness where
that becomes a test of courage and commitment. With so much of
your Earth’s longing for spirituality based on the need to
escape the pain and suffering of being human at this time, it
may surprise you to learn that you are the cutting edge of
God-consciousness right now in this physical density. If Earth
can experience unity-in-diversity on a physicalized (3rd or 4th)
dimension, it greatly expands the activity of the Heart of God
as the entire Universe begins a cycle of inbreath back to the
Mind of God.
For yes, there are cycles within cycles within cycles enfolded
in your planetary birthing. Not only are you nearing the end of
a millenium but you are also at the end of a 2160 year Piscean
Age. The Aquarian Age you enter into is not just the beginning
of another Age but the beginning of an entire 25,920-year cycle
marked by the precession of the equinoxes. This Precessional
Year also reflects the orbit of your solar system around
Alcyone, the central sun of the Pleiades. Twice during the
Precessional Year, including at the beginning of the Age of
Aquarius, you enter the influence of a high-vibrational stream
of unified light known as the "photon belt", emanating from the
Galactic Sun, which synchronizes your entire galaxy to the Mind
Your Galactic Sun is likewise completing its own spiral through
the galaxies nearing the moment described in the Hindu
Scriptures as the "inbreath of God". Everything in the current
cycle of Creation up to this point has been an expression of the
"outbreath of God". Now is the moment of return, when all things
in all dimensions in all universes fold back to a higher octave
of Unity. It is like the speedometer in one of your automobiles
synchronizing to 99999 before turning over to Zero Point.
Zero Point refers
to a convergence taking place on Earth
that ties together all these great cycles with all the
dimensions in Creation in the journey back to Oneness. The cusp
of a millenium links with the cusp of an Age links with the cusp
of a Precessional Year links with the cusp of a Galactic Cycle
links with the cusp of the Creator’s Breath.
What does this mean? Because of the unique nature of this
particular Zero Point, Earth stands at the threshhold of a
cosmic moment of birth in which Creator and Creation become one.
In other words, the veils between the dimensions are about to
disappear for a moment of time, or rather a moment out of time,
long enough for Creator consciousness to slip into the hearts
and minds of all beings embodied on Earth, and by reflection,
the entire inhabited universes. In this moment of timelessness,
it is as if all Creation holds its breath with the Creator, and
is then forever after infused with the Spirit of God.
The frequency of oscillation of any
lifeform has to do with its connectedness with Spirit. In that
moment of Infusion, the frequency of all beings on the planet
will be raised in one extraordinary jolt of awakening. And since
time and dimension also have to do with frequency, you will be
suddenly catapulted into the 4th dimension as a collective
event. While the collective transition to the 5th dimension will
yet take a while, some of you may find yourself going past the
4th into the 5th or even 6th dimensional frequencies, activating
the ascension process. Thus it is that I, Windrider, having
found myself in 6-D after the Shift, chose to dissolve my 4th
dimensional body into the unified light, and found myself
practicing the ability to translate through all times and
dimensions of the Creator Universes.
THE TWO STREAMS
With that background, I wish to now speak with you about the two
streams of probability that currently stretch out before you.
The Great Shift I have talked about is inevitable. It is a
certainty in all the probable timelines of your future. What
actually happens at this Zero Point, or Cosmic Birth, is still
undetermined, however, and depends entirely on the collective
consciousness latent in that moment.
My existence among you and that of other masters from your
future reflects the fact that a proportion of humanity has
sucessfully navigated through the Shift. It does not reflect
what that proportion is. That keeps ever changing, and our wish
is that this include the greatest number of beings possible.
These are the two probability scenarios that exist at this time.
One is that at the moment of Zero Point that all beings on this
planet are translated into the 4th dimension. This is the best
case scenario. The other is that there will be a split between
the worlds, that those who are prepared to move into 4-D will do
so, and those who are not will remain behind in 3-D to play out
their karma on a parallel Earth, which will likely result in
The third alternative probability and worst case scenario, that
your entire planet would be destroyed in a great cataclysm, no
longer exists. This did seem a likely possibility up until a
decade or two ago in your time, and on behalf of all the
ascended masters I congratulate you on the shift of
consciousness you have already undergone so as to avert this!
There is a great light being carried on the Earth right now.
This is why we believe it is possible to shift out further from
the second scenario of partial translation into 4-D to the best
case scenario of a full translation of planet Earth. This is
also why the advent of Zero Point has been postponed to the
extent possible in order to give all humanity the opportunity to
make the Shift together.
Many of your ancient prophecies speak to the second stream of
probability because that seemed to be the most hopeful scenario
envisioned at that time. Jesus spoke of the "rapture", of two
men working in the fields, one of whom would be taken, the other
left behind. Christian, Muslim and Hebrew scriptures are replete
with images of a "day of judgement", when the "righteous’ would
be rewarded and the "unrighteous" punished.
There are also metaphors in this age that reflect the first
scenario. The story of "the hundredth monkey", which is an apt
description of bioloical as well as spiritual evolution, is one
example. Always it is true that when there is a sufficient
number of beings envisioning and practicing a new paradigm, that
the "law of grace" is then invoked, and the rest of the monkeys,
or humanity, as the case may be, are brought into entrainment.
What needs to happen for mass consciousness to shift from the
second to the first stream of probability? The second scenario
is based on "karma", the first scenario on "grace". You need to
understand that the "law of grace" is a higher octave of the
"law of karma". And you need to understand and fully embrace
your personal as well as collective shadows.
When the master Jesus spoke of forgiving your enemy he spoke not
of condoning their actions but of recognizing that you and he
both were shadow and light together, and that forgiveness
provided you both an opportunity to practice a divine alchemy,
unifying both shadow and light in the experience of Oneness. He
also counseled us to "love your neighbor as yourself".
The test for awakened humanity is this. Can you extend the hand
of forgiveness and love in this expanded sense to your brothers
and sisters in ignorance and darkness, a forgiveness that arises
from compassion, a forgiveness that embraces your neighbor,
yourself, the dark lords, the powermongers, the satanic forces,
the military mind, the secret governments, the illuminati, the
"reptilians", "greys", "annunaki", or whatever your own version
of the "enemy" happens to be?
When you do so, this activates the law of grace, and brings to
an end a polarized conflict that opens the door to a full
planetary awakening. More than that it provides an opportunity
to resolve and heal a long drawn out intergalactic war, and
bring much suffering to an end. It assures that in the "inbreath
of God" to come that none get left behind. This is the best case
scenario, and one that I have traveled back into your time to
seed once again.
It begins with belief, followed by
desire. Know that it is possible to experience a graceful
pain-free unified birthing into the Fourth Dimension and beyond.
Know also that you are capable of being the agents of God in
this great alchemy. You have already proved this in averting the
third probability of cataclysmic destruction.
I depart now, and I impart you with love and grace. Know that
you have great assistance in this profound opportunity ahead.
Call on the ascended masters and the brotherhoods of light, the
angelic hierarchies and the Elohim, call on the avatars and
saints throughout the ages, call on the star nations and the
intergalactic councils of light, call on your higher selves and
the Christ, call on the Planetary, Solar, Galactic and Univesal
Logos, call on the Great Spirit that many call God. You are not
alone, and we are not separate! Adonai!

Fixed Cross of August 16 and 17, 1999; also coincidentally the

a week in spiritual retreat and ceremony in the upper meadows of
Mount Shasta. My own experience of the transmission was an
expanded state where a barrage of concepts, energy and
information flowed through that I was left to translate into
writing to the best of my ability. There seemed to be a lot more
wanting to be said, which I have left out for the purpose of

DREAMS OF FEATHERS
12-25-97 - DREAM
NOTE: I received a Christmas gift of a pair of silver earrings each with 3
silver feathers dangling from them. That same night I had the following dream:
I was living in a city. I found a huge green emerald beaded necklace.
Intertwined in the necklace was another necklace on two silver chains. On the
chains was a silver pendant of a particular shape with 3 silver feathers hanging
I took the silver necklace off the beaded necklace - separated them- and kept
the silver necklace with the three feathers. It twinkled and sparkled as it
twisted around on the chains.
I took the green emerald beaded necklace to a woman who collected emeralds like
this. She had a whole room full of polished stones and beads as well as rough
cut stellae shaped stones by the million. In the center of the room was an uncut
emerald as least 5 feet tall by 4 feet wide with millions of other emeralds all
She knew immediately that the silver feathered necklace belonged with the beaded
emerald necklace I brought to her. She knew it was supposed to be an entwined
pair. She told me that the silver feathered part was far more valuable than the
jewels because it belonged to a people of antiquity.
She immediately sent two of her henchmen out to find the silver parts, not
knowing that I had it in my pocket with my hand on it. I became worried that I
might be in some kind of trouble for having it because of it's value, but I
didn't admit that I had it.
NOTE: After I had this dream, I was compelled to find out why the three silver
feathers had more value than her whole room full of emeralds.
This is what I found: In the book "Dream Feather by Viento Stan-Padilla, a
little Indian boy hears a song drifting down from the sun. He knew that from the
ancient stone etchings on the cave walls, that the feather was foretold and
would be his guide if he but followed it and return to the source.The feather
took him on an inner journey where he met a shining presence, where a flash of
light and a flame beheld gave him the seed that reunited and fused forever the
center of his heart to the circle of creation. He says we should all watch for a
Dream Feather and join the circle because when each generation has done so, the
wheel of light will be complete.
In Joseph Campbell's book, "The Inner Reaches of Outer Space - Metaphor as Myth
and Religion, he shows an Egyptian scene of the weighing of the heart of the
deceased against a feather symbolic of Ma'at, goddess of the moral order of the
universe. Ma'at is the goddess of truth and represents truth and justice of the
Supreme God. The weight of the heart of the deceased is found to be just only if
guilt has not made the heart heavier than Ma'at's feather. The heart must be
ma'ati (in accordance with Ma'at) if the deceased is to 'become Osiris' (i.e.
take on immortality) If the heart does not pass the test, the soul must be
Four feathers adorned the headdress of the god Anhur, (Onouris), a warrior-like
figure from the Upper Egyptian city of Thiis. The dispeller of demons Beset was
also portrayed with a crown of feathers.
The polyvalent god and hero Quetzallccoatl was portrayed as a snake covered with
iridescent-green feathers of the quetzal bird. These feathers also made up the
insignias of Mexican kings. Each feather in the headdresses of the native
inhabitants signified an act of bravery of the wearer.
1991 - DREAM - by Jeff:
I and an oriental man went to a house to buy Avon pefume. It was raining hard. I
wrote a check and placed it on the porch. A very big man let us into the house.
My oriental companion had to take off his head and hold it under his arm. The
big man led us into a split-level bedroom, with the bed on the higher level.
Another very big man was there, who looked mean. This big man started chasing
us. They ran for the front door, but the other big man was guarding the door,
holding a knife. We all ran around in a circle in the living room. After a
while, the big man at the door said he would let us out.
Instantly, the knife turned into a feather and we were set free. The strange
thing was - that I realized all along that the knife was really a feather, but
for some reason I perceived it as a knife.
Comments from Joe Mason:
Shortly after hearing the dream, I "just happened" to read in "The Sacred
Symbols of Mu," that the feather represented "Truth" to the ancient Egyptians.
They choose the feather to symbolize Truth, because it can be so easily blown
The dream speaks in a big way. The truth will set you free . . . we dwell in the
land of Maya/illusion. The oriental man (foreigner from another land) is The
Divine Ka, the Divine Double, The Self. The perfume is related to the "flower"
symbolism, symbolic of the Oversoul. The check is karma - in the "learning"
sense. We have nothing to fear but our own fears. We are eternal beings -
nothing can really harm us. etc.
Cultivating & Strange Things In the Field
From: (Bryon Smith)
I was on the big tractor and in the field when I noticed something strange
laying between two rows of grain. I'm not sure what this crop was however.
Anyway I drove the tractor up near it and it vanished, I couldn't see this thing
anymore. I wasn't sure what it was I thought it might be a dead animal but it
was like nothing I had ever seen before. I backed up again and there it was and
I would draw close to it and it would vanish. I came near it this second time
and accidentally ran over some of the crop. I looked down and saw a HUGE white
feather laying on the ground between two rows. I recall thinking there's no
birds that large on this Earth, it must have fallen from a huge angel.
Again I backed up and this time I looked down and saw what certainly appeared to
be a large women laying on the ground at the edge of one of the rows. I stopped
and looked at her face wondering if she were dead. I saw no movement or
indications of life and the more I looked the more it looked like an illusion.
Her face almost looked like it was made up out of cobwebs as it was just that
color and texture. I backed the tractor up and the right front wheel came across
this form and it appeared to just roll up and vanish.
So here's a strange dream for everyone to try to figure out. We know the crop is
the harvest but this crop I didn't recognize even what it was. It was about the
height of a bean crop. That first thing I saw was some kind of dead animal all
right but the only thing I can think of to describe it was that kind of bird
that has a really huge head and beak. The bird isn't all that big but the head
is way larger than you would think it would be. I can't think of the name of it.
All I can say is this first dead animal I saw reminded me of something like
The huge white feather is on the ground. I can say the white feather is an
Indian sign of peace and wisdom when wore hanging down over the ear. I really
don't know if this is a sign of the end of peace or not in this dream but I get
the impression it is a symbol of war to see the large white feather on the
ground like this in the middle of a harvest of what ever it was. The harvest
itself is a war and death symbol.
The large image on the ground appeared to be a large dead women or dead angel
perhaps but it was hollow like a shell made from something else but it looked so
very real like you could reach out and touch it.
THIS IS WHERE I POST WHAT I'M DOING AND THINKING
