Electricity & Magnetism At Play Everyday

Let’s talk fundamental physics. Electricity and magnetism are usually referenced in an inanimate context. Today let’s rather think about how the living human body can be described as an electro-magnetic object of fractal nature.

Electricity

If you have ever been shocked the idea of electricity in the body should come as no surprise.  However, what may be surprising are the profound implications of this simple natural phenomena.

The fractal nature of our bodies give rise to whole worlds within us. Two particular places of note are the brain and the body as a whole.

Human body is an electric cirtcuit
The human body has resistance properties consistent with an electrical circuit
Synapse in the brain. Some synaptic communication is electrical. Some chemical.

The seemingly coincidental fact that Resistance in measured in "ohms" shouldn't be lost on us. The audible similarity with the oft pronounced Cosmic Sound of Aum (Amen) is uncanny.

The fact that electrical resistance is measured in “ohms” shouldn’t be lost on us as a mere coincidence. The audible similarity with the cosmic sound of Aum(Amen) is uncanny to say the least.


Magnetism

Electricity and magnetism are inexorably linked. If there is an electric current present there will be a corresponding magnetic field. Hence you are always attracting or repelling some frequency of energy just by being “on”.

Even our very intangible thoughts carry some quantifiable amount of energy because electrical synapses fire in the brain. Therefore by merely thinking thoughts we have a magnetic effect in the material universe. Therefore the unseen is linked to the seen. Due to this fact perhaps we should be more mindful about the frequency of our thoughts.

Even with a small adjustment during a “basic” pose, you can simply think about what is going on in order to bring mindful awareness to the moment. As a result of doing this you are quite literally bringing power to your pose. Enjoy the experience of a mindful practice.
