Magnetite from Mars

The martian meteorite ALH84001 arrived on Earth 13,000
years ago. The chain like formation, typical of biogenic magnetite, suggests this was a life form. This is the oldest reported magnetofossils, from 4.0 billion-year-old carbonate blebs, in the Martian meteorite. The oldest Earth magnetofossils are 2.1 billion years old.  See YouTube: The Universe: Martian Life – ALH-84001

Magnetoreception may well have been among the first sensory systems to evolve, as suggested by the presence of magnetosomes and magnetosome chain structures in the 4.0 billion year old carbonate blebs of the Martian meteorite ALH84001 [50••,51,52]. although this is nearly a billion years older than the oldest microbial fossils on Earth, it suggests that this genetic ability was brought here from Mars via the process of panspermia.”

Memory, Magnetite and the Air We Breathe

A publication has suggested that our memory may revolve round biogenic magnetite  within the brain.  Biogenic magnetite has been detected in cells throughout the human body, and especially in brain cells. The largest quantities are found in the membranes surrounding the brain, known as the pia and dura, and they contain up to 100 million biogenic crystals. According to one theory, this might act as either a shield for the brain; another possibility, I suggest, is as a transducer network for reception of magnetic and electromagnetic signals (including the schumann resonance frequencies, the geomagnetic field, tectonic piezo-electric fields, and empathic or telepathic detection of brainwaves) Human sensitivity to magnetic signals has been seen as low as 10’s of nanoteslas.

Nano sized spherical microscopic particles of inorganic magnetite have been found in samples of human brain tissues, the count per gram is above 100 million in some samples. The origin of these particles is suspected to be from automobile engines (combustion chambers), and brakes. Platinum particles of the same type, presumably from catalytic converters have also been detected. Serious speculation has been proposed, that this could be a significant factor for the development of alzheimers disease: the nano sized particles, it has been proposed, pass up the nasal passages and directly into the brain via the olfactory nerves, . They suspect that free radial generation occurs within the brain from exposure to the billions of magnetite nanospheres, this form of inorganic iron is very toxic. In addition, the magnetic fields of the brain can be confused by this form of inorganic iron, corresponding with memory issues, and disturbances of other mental functions.

Electrostatic air purifiers, especially when combined with hepa filters can remove air borne pollutants, even those that are microscopic. An additional filter utilizing a magnetic field could be included to reduce nano-sized magnetite particles. The best solution is to avoid breathing polluted air. Unfortunately, this not possible for most modern people in city environments, and air purification technologies look like the only option.

Rise of the Himalayas

During my visit to India in 1971 I felt a distinct energy quality everywhere, it permeated the people and the land. My feeling in India was of a soothing, calm, magnetic and feminine quality: receptive, intuitive, gentle and spiritual. This contrasts dramatically with the West, specifically the west coast of the United states, which to me feels electric, dynamic, masculine, yielding a sense of forward momentum and a desire for activity. The west coast is also a collision in progress: the Pacific Plate colliding with the American Plate; here also we find piezo-electric energy (pressure between rocks, crystal containing granite, and igneous rocks) radiating from areas near earthquake faults, existing as a continuous background level of seismic activity.

I suspect that the on going collision of the Indian subcontinent with the Asian continent is generating a very powerful field of piezo-electric energy, and sensitive individuals can perceive this as specific qualities of feeling. For more information, see the YouTube presentations about the rise of the Himalayas, and Plate Tectonics and California Geology.

The Origin of Meditation

My experiences at many luminous places is one of mental tranquility, including very coherent states of mind, at times almost completely free of thoughts. Places of power and luminosity, for me, induce a state of meditation, concentrating my mind via the energetic fields of these special environments, and incline my mind to a sustained degree of attentive awareness.

We can imagine explorers of the Himalayas, a very long time ago, who approached mountains such as Mt. Kailash, and experienced profound states of mental focus, spontaneously, naturally, and upon returning to their homes choose to practice inducing a similar state of focused awareness by paying attention consciously, duplicating, as best they could, their exalted experiences at luminous sites in the Himalayas. I believe that this was the origin of meditation, a practice of concentrating the mind, as it occurs naturally at certain luminous places.

Shiva, a principle God of Hinduism, is portrayed in art and scriptures as residing upon Mt Kailash, His Home. He is the patron of yoga, and He is seen seated in meditation* on the top of Mt Kailash. Lama Govinda and Walter Evans Wentz, both scholars and experts on the subject of Tibetan yoga and meditation refer to Mt. Kailash, and other sites in the Himalayas, which have induced powerful spiritual experiences for many people.

*Cannabis Indica is a sacrament used by many spiritual aspirants in Northern India. It is used to incline awareness to pay attention to the mind, and is thus considered by some people to be an aide for meditation. It facilitates withdrawing the mind from the senses, looking inward, and paying attention to qualities of the mind and consciousness. Cannabis was a medicinal herb held in high esteem by Shiva. We can imagine what the combination of Cannabis Indica was for early explorers who par took of this intoxicant while visiting luminous places in the Himalayas.
