I'm picking up good vibrations... really?

Why are we all so angry?  Where does this anger come from?  I have been thinking about this for some time and have come to some conclusions.

First, some background:

My grandfather, a Theosophist, use to sit me on his knee and try to explain to me that every physical thing we know, or know of, is made up of different densities of gas.  This is well illustrated by sitting on the beach and gazing out over the ocean on a hot, sultry day.  On such a day, the horizon blurs and you cannot tell where water ends and air begins.  The same thing can happen between water and ice.

Now, these many years later, we understand through thermodynamics that every thing we know, or know of, is also different densities of energy.  Energy that vibrates and pulsates.  Vibrations and pulsations that create, in the aggregate, a measurable "Cosmic Vibe."  We need look no further than the moon to see the effects of a stellar body's magnetic field on the earth and on us.  The effect is real and visceral and cannot be denied.

When I first saw a nighttime desert sky the creation of astrology and astrological figures became perfectly clear to me, for the desert sky is so clear and stars so abundant that they become three-dimensional.  They have depth and breadth.  It's as easy to lie on your back and see figures in the stars as it is to see them in the clouds.  They appear so close that you can touch them.  Certainly, feel them.  

I believe that in the distant past mankind could actually feel the magnetic fields, the "vibes", of the planets as they crossed the sky.  Over the millenia our bodies and our psyches became so attuned to the cosmic vibes, this cosmic rhythm, that our bodily functions, even our peace of mind, became totally in sync with the cycles and vibes of the planets and the earth.

And the point is?

We have so cluttered our environment with all manner of radio waves and electromagnetic fields that the cosmic vibes essential to our health and well being are as polluted as the air we breath and the water we drink.  

There is virtually no place left on earth where we can escape being bombarded by microwaves.  They rain down on us from satellites above.  They are blasted throughout the environment from cell phone towers, television and radio transmission towers, all sort and manner of citizen band radio, short-wave radio, magnetic fields from power lines, the power grid, your computer, your cell phone, microwave oven and even your toaster.

They create an artificial vibe that keeps us on edge, that keep us off-balance, that keep us fearful and angry.  Add to that the artificial chemicals we eat and drink, noise pollution, visual pollution, general confusion and an over-populated planet and it's a wonder there aren't more people randomly killing and chewing off people's faces. 

George Carlin use to liken America to water going down a drain.  As it nears the center it spins faster and faster until it's finally gone.  I fear that is now a prescription for all of mankind.

  1. Well, maybe not ALL of mankind. Just those of us in the "civilized" world. As I approach the Big City about 250 miles south of here I can see it, smell it, and feel it about 50 miles out. I could never live like that again. But yes, it is just about everywhere.

    1. I'm glad to hear that there is someplace that doesn't feel like it's going down the drain.

  2. I live with one of those cell phone towers right on my apartment, outside my window on the top floor. I feel this interferes with my serenity, for sure. We are an electrical mess because of all the unnecessary input, it seems.

    1. I believe these towers are dangerous, literally. Cancer has been associated with proximity to strong microwave and magnetic fields.

  3. That makes sense, your theory about a cosmic vibe that we're no longer attuned to. During the tsunami of late 2004, the "primitive" tribes living on an island near India were saved from the destruction. These people are totally cut off from "civilization" and they live off the land, are completely tuned in to natural cycles, etc. Apparently they knew about the earthquake and tsunami hours and hours ahead of time, and they all moved to the highest elevations they could find. When the tsunami swept over the island, they were all safely perched on higher ground.

    I don't know how the above story -- I'm pretty sure it's true and not just an urban legend -- applies to millions of us urbanized/civilized people. Food for thought though.

    1. I believe the story is true. Certainly the animals ran for higher ground.

  4. There are times when I will have a terribly uneasy feeling and be quite anxious. It is enough different from my regular anxiety that I have gotten used to asking myself if it is a full moon. I always find it is full when I feel like that. Also, a couple of years ago I lived right below a cell phone tower and also the building had lots of chemicals. I was sick for the entire time I lived there and got better when I moved. I am sure most of us have similar stories if we stop and think about it, and so the point is I agree with you. :)

    1. There's no doubt about the effect of the moon and stars. You can feel it if you're attuned to your body at all, which most people aren't.

  5. There recently was a story on TV about how cell phones have almost eliminated pay phones - except in one area of the United States: the United States National Radio Quiet Zone, which covers a large area of Virginia and West Virginia. There is an article about it on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_National_Radio_Quiet_Zone

    I believe people have always been influenced by waves, magnetic fields, or mysterious forces. In primitive cultures, women tend to menstruate all at the same time, their cycle being influenced by the moon. I used to work in a nursing home - the Alzheimer's ward during a full moon or even during the sunset hours was an interesting place compared to other times of the month or day.

    1. I've read about the quiet zone and the reason for it has to do with radio telescopes, not some place that's "quiet." Just what you'd expect.

  6. Great post and I agree with nearly all of it.
    In my opinion its not just the varying forms of radio energy that permeate and bombard our bodies but the countless chemicals we use everyday. Even worse a report that appeared both on television and in print a few years back says all sorts of pharmaceutical drugs are being flushed down toilets and our waste water systems are not designed to handle them. This drug cocktail residue is in our tap water and while the amounts are very small there is serious concern about what this constant exposure will do to us in the long run.


    James Lovelock, the guy who came up with the Gaia hypothesis has stated something to the effect he believes human civilization will collapse on the continents while those living on the islands well away from any mainland will survive and eventually rebuild. long story short, I believe him and wish like hell I had a way to get my family to some place like New Zealand or Tasmania.

    1. You're right about the chemical soup and drinking water pollution. (More fracking please.) I'm a big Lovelock fan and totally accept the Mesa Gaia concept. I love George Carlin's description of the earth ridding itself of unwanted infestations like a dog shaking off water.

  7. I know why I am so pissed off---magnetic and electrical wave bombardment may add to it but I am mainly pissed off because I pay attention to the culture, locally, nationally, and world wide and see the despicable way most people interact. I am pissed off because we are a world of slaves to powers and greeds we really do not in the majority understand or even see.

    1. And all of that is influenced by the above. Of course, greed is at the root of it. Greed on many levels. Or maybe it's just a survival instinct even in the face of plenty?

  8. I have a doctor that agrees with you. She is also thinking that our constant exposure to the short bursts of information we expose ourselves to online is changing the way our brains function. We are constantly exposing ourselves to forms of stress we don't identify as stress. Stress makes us angry, along with excessive chemicals in our foods and microwaves in our air.

  9. thoughtful and helpful post. ceaseless, unrelenting noise and clutter, in so many dehumanizing forms....hard on the body, mind and spirit.

    1. Down on the South Carolina coast is Huntington Beach State park and it has a segment of beach almost isolated with very few visitors even in the summer months. Once again long story short went down there many times in the winter months and often had the entire stretch of beach all to myself. During those visits there was absolutely no human made noises to be heard. It was just the sound of the surf, the wind, and the sometimes a faint crackle of thunder off in the distance.

      Each and every time when I had the beach to myself I felt like a different and far better person when I eventually had to leave.

    2. Talbot Island State Park is like that here only you can't totally escape sight and sound of humans even there. The Okefenokee Swamp is one of the few places left in the Southeast where you cannot hear any human made sound at all.

  10. I agree with you completely. Add to that the total disassociation we have with nature and by that I mean no contact going from building to car to building to car with canned air everywhere. One of my favorite rants. I've said for a long time that human beings will be one of the least successful life forms this planet has produced in terms of longevity.

    1. The evidence is certainly piling up in favor of your prediction. I heard some young fat cat on TV last night who is building space craft say that space exploration will be the salvation of mankind. Poppycock.

  11. I was reading the biography of Eileen Garrett, a famous psychic of the 1930s and 1940s, who really did seem to feel these vibrations and therefore was overwhelmed by the modern world. Have you read her book/s? what do you think? I don't know if she was a theosophist.

    1. Not familiar with Garrett, but I have no doubt the modern world drives you crazy.

Sorry about the comment thingy folks. Too much spam.
