## Peanut Gallery Independent Praise of Drew Hempel's research

You have the best mental focus of any student I've met. Just don't let it go to your head! Qigong Master Jim Nance 2015

Your mind is very powerful from years of meditation. Just focus on the lower tan t'ien. Qigong Master Chunyi Lin 2015

My second source for the superiority of full lotus is the teaching of qigong master Chunyi Lin, founder of Spring Forest Qigong. According to qigong researcher (and all around wild and crazy guy) Drew Hempel, Chunyi Lin said that 20 minutes in full lotus is worth 4 hours of any other meditation practice. That sounds like an exaggeration, but Drew has had some pretty far out results from his practice. Chris, Tai Chi in San Diego, 2011

2/2/11: Long time Steamshovel correpsondent Drew Hemphill has had his research cited extensively in a new article by Dan Eden (Gary Vey) who had exposed James Hurtak's ties to Project HAARP and the NSA: Kenn Thomas
I think Drew Hempel offers us some clues about chirality and harmonics.

1) There is a self-sustaining cosmic resonance (hidden coherence) - what he calls alchemical resonance?

2) Natural resonance cycles change over time (based on precession of the equinox?) where there is a switch from carbon to silicone based life?

3) The resonance change between Saturn and Jupiter will have a major effect upon Earth?

4) Aligning the ions of plasma with the ions of matter creates complimentary opposites of energy and mass?

5) Positronium (electron-position coupling) creates mirror matter that passes through black holes?

According to the polymath and University of Minnesota alum Drew Hempel, the vagus nerve climax can be achieved by male practitioners of meditation and Qigong. According to Hempel, these practices can ionize neurotransmitters in the gut — our body's largest repository of serotonin — which can then travel through the vagus nerve and cross the normally prudish blood-brain barrier, thus giving neck-pulsing, orgasmic-like sensations written about in Daoist texts. Qigong and meditation, Hempel said, are the opposite of dopamine obsession: they focus on present awareness and a lack of anticipation for future events.

Drew Hempel has caught my interest for some time as many of his articles on the ‘Natural Resonance Revolution’, so closely matches much of our groups ( and my own ) experiences and thoughts on the nature of the phenomena we’ve been exposed to via the frequencies I’ve created for our use. A lot of what Drew speaks about is congruent to where we are at and I think it really serves all of us to reflect upon his writings especially in relation to what we have been journeying through in the real world.

Drew Hempel went that far. He's a scientist who has plumbed the depths of these training techniques.
He kind of takes...at one point he called it Pre-Socratic African Taoist Yoga training. Which is I guess a pretty bare one-liner about his research but you know qigong is something that will become more culturally significant in the way that Tai Chi is now.Philosophy professor Dave Leech podcast discussion with David Metcalfe and Dr. Tim Brigham
I will tell you how to do this. I followed the information which was posted in online forums and articles by someone called 'drew hempel' as he studied something called 'spring forest qigong' and 'taoist yoga'. I followed the same training he did and it's very powerful. He studied SFQ with qigong master chun yi lin (http://www.bornahealer.com/)...
- there is a lot of **** on the net because it seems like no one has a clue how to do real energy work, drew hempel was the only person I found who made any sense to me, so I followed what he did and it worked....
Dreambot, 2011 Spiritualforums post

Drew Hempel's third eye is connected like only a handful of people on this planet's are. He's able to see things in a way very few can. If you're interested in metaphysics and the such, he's worth a read.

"Riskfactor" posting on a forum in 2011.

The disgustingly typical common dismissal of yours of Drew's worth is telling. Can't handle anything too far beyond your comfort zone so you don't at all engage, as Drew would say, with his information. Much of which is simply discerning the fundamental structure linking revered traditional scriptures and cuttingedge science and it's explication in human life on Earth.
Then of course you project by claiming he is not engaging well... you're right, but you are still denying your hypocrisy, as you are too scared to admit that the reason you say you don't appreciate any of his writing is probably not because it is all false but because it is occult to your limited mind.
You can't argue with the facts and are too dumb to handle his points so you resort to smear tactics.
Who cares if some nut spams the net. It is only disruptive to the weak of mind. Fact is Drew has an "original" conclusion that deserves global discussion and you censor it like a welltrained shill, which I assume you are not.

Drew's idea. 2:3 is Yang, 3:4 is Yin... ie 666 is Yang. But he might repeat it like the example below, at which 99% of readers will throw their hands up in incomprehension and only folk like me, a stubborn OneTruthLover, bother to really get what he is saying. To say his is crazy is stupidly missing the point, plus to which he seems saner than most of the zombies who pretend humanity. He may a mixed up lake but at least he is not a puddle of puke.
Brace yourselves,
"I've posted that in fact musicologist Ernest McClain had already gleaned this from Plato -- see his Pythagorean Plato -- and that in fact while 5/4 was the Greek Miracle as the cube root of two leading to amplitude as classical mathematics for 3 dimensional form

the Tai Chi Perfect 5th-4th as 2:3 and 3:4 Yang and Yin (my discovery) is the QUANTUM secret of 2-dimensional energy intensity from frequency, not classical amplitude."

Needless to say he condenses much meaning in few words so you gotta read more his of his spiel to get it. His earliest piece on the greek Miracle is best. Cloud Tiger, a Tai Chi practitioner in the UK, 2009

Hempel, proficient in a wide sprectrum of intellectual pursuits including math and music --- and far from being deluded in any sense of the word as brought forth in the above quote by Hui Neng --- is also an eastern spiritual renaissance master as well. Just as much too, in the aforementioned areas and others far afield, as a search of his name will show, or did before he just simply disappeared into cyber space or infinity, he was one of the most prolific contributors on the net. His writings and books lean heavily toward a variety of eastern spiritual aspects, with a strong personal emphasis on qigong and meditation executed almost exclusively through the use of the full lotus position.

Additionally, even though Drew has resurfaced and available for interaction to all comers, I have however, NOT changed any of the above content of the original page because in my opinion it still remains highly relevant, showing all kinds of insight into who and where Hempel comes from, from any number of angles. Good to hear you are back. The internet wasn't the same without you.

The Wanderling, advaita meditation online site page on Drew Hempel

First we have to address the root of this possible problem.

the main root of all of this is the conceptual axiom that the parts of a system should be symmetrical if it desires to be in HARMONY. This in math is called COMMUTATIVE RING, or AxB=BxA.

From this principle (the commutative ring) we created a body of rules and paradigms in science, and even in religion, that separates our perception from nature itself (our game of denying being part of it) For example, as someone on this forum talked about maxwell´s quaternions in here. To work with an asymmetrical principle (most of things in nature) with our math that has as a main basic principle the commutative ring we first need to CHANGE what we gonna study, I mean, our science takes the information in nature which is assymétrical and DIVERGENT and converts it to an symmetrical and CONVERGENTE group of data to work with.
This is, as a principle, exactly what we did with the musical scales, as drew demonstrated.

In ancient music we got the asymmetrical intervals and, mainly since old non-pre-socratic Greece, we develop the obsession and the desire to “correct” it´s ugliness (natural asymmetry), so we transformed ancient music into symmetrical intervals. Buy by doing so we generate a comma, an extra group of data that can´t be used and should be discarded and watched over to avoid its return, because if this comma returns to the scale, it will create a hell of a mess to the fragile artificial symmetry we applied to it. So, conceptualy, the kind of technology we create, it prefers to change nature into artificial symmetry instead of flowing with it.

So it´s a matter of the right tool for the right job. And our Math has no asymmetrical tool for the job. IT´s all about the commutative ring, so even when working with asymmetrical systems (like nature) it has to convert it into symmetrical to process it. IT´s simple, drew is saying that western math and music take what is divergent (spiraling out) by nature and converge it before giving any kind of result. It´s a fact. Check, I don´t know, Wikipedia?, to get informations about the commutative ring and the non-commutative ring.

Now, I´m not 100% with drew on the consequences of “raping” nature with symmetry. I do know drew for the last 10yrs. Or so. I´m very good at math and good enough in music. I´m so-so in physics, i´ve studied electrical engineer for two yrs before change my mind and go to journalism school and drop it too to work as a photographer and illustrator and now as a computer graphics animator and advertising film director. So I have some background to understand a great chunk of drew hypothesis.

We try to solve all with symmetry, as the case with the music intervals, therefore, as in the case of music intervals, we create commas in science and all the range of activities that rely on science.

So this is the radical part of this use of musical model to explain things: if we try to understand nature (that is asymmetrical and divergent) with concepts and tools that are symmetrical and convergent) we gonna create dissonances in return and enter in a cycle of solving a dissonance with more symmetry to generate even more dissonance in the next octave ´till we # everything up! (we are already doing so! Our tech gives us marvelous stuff at the same time it acidify the oceans ending up #ing up with animals that depends on ultrasound for communication to reproduction. Our tech gives us marvelous tools as computer hi-res screens, but in return any cycle above 30hz is with time stressful to the human cells, etc, etc.)

non-commutative is so alien to our understand of thing that, as an example, if you go to Mr. Wolfram Math repository site you gonna find only ONE EMPTY page about it!!non-commutative is so alien to our understand of thing that, as an example, if you go to Mr. Wolfram Math repository site you gonna find only ONE EMPTY page about it!!

Now let´s go to the possible solutions for this.

1.full-lotus as a solution. Drew said full-lotus can transform the excess of electrochemical information in the lower body into electromagnectic information in the upper body. Some angry scientific trolls started to make fun of it.

for the materialistic people the thing is in the physiology.

siting in full-lotus will put a great chunk of pressure into your SACRUM! The sacrum is empty and pressure there will start to create small levels of ultra sound that will TRANSDUCE the energy from electrochemical into electromagnetic (remember, SOUND is PRESSURE WAVES, and it´s been prove that ultrasound can transduce energy from one state to other… use uncle google, he is your friend!! )… so this is one of the main reasons why full-lotus is a great tool.

It took me one year of daily chikung to sit in full-lotus with ease, before my one year of spring forest qigong I could barely sit in freestyle (like an north American indian) for more than a couple of minutes without felling a hell of pain in my back and legs!

After i´ve learned to sit in full-lotus, it´s a #ing bliss, full-lotus and half-lotus all day long. I even cut the legs from all my tables in my studio so I can sit in full-lotus and half-lotus anternated all day!!

So it´s one solution, but it´s a personal one.

2. Music create patterns in our brain.
It´s known that music create patterns in our brain. So if we just listen to music made with symmetrical and proportional intervals, some kind of patterns will form… with non-western music (mostly live, since hard to find speakers in home and computers that can produce ultrasound! ) so with non-western music we can generate other kind of patterns, since the intervals are asymmetrical. Drew have posted links to papers demonstrated, among otherthings, how ultrasound can stimulate the brain, the center of the brain, so on.

Also, Pineal Gland is a place made for sonoluminescence production. See? Pineal gland has fluid and cavitation in it! So with ultrasound stimulus in it we can ionize it a lot, we can produce tons of melatonie, and also we can generate little bubbles of light! By my personal experience, seeing light while practicing small universe (the oldest meditation that exist, it´s part of spring forest chikung and also is a “secret” inside the kriya yoga school) is relaxing, insightful and healing.
So, changing the king of music we listen to is a way of changing the patterns in our brain and so maybe it will reflect in the patterns we create in the world too.

3.creating a science where natural resonance ratios are important.
Well, this third item i´ll say nothing, since it´s what i´m working for the past 5 yrs. But a simple example of using natural resonance (non-comutative) musical ratios in technology is The Sonic Bloom, it´s a kit with audio from birds generating the fifth and forth in a repeated way so the intensity will affect the plants cells to expand more, taking more nutrients. It´s amazing. I use it to feed my home grown food (i´m a raw vegetarian) as my wife garden.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg…

Now those open minded, the daily practice of small universe from spring forest qigong, or the listening of music without symmetrical intervals, or the use of tech like the sonic bloom are just a few of the examples of the changes we can make personally or collectively to a better and more harmonious world.
And those so full of the “right” paradigm, well, you can keep projecting your anger on drew, it´s funny to read your assumptions about my crazy druid friend!

"Sound is the bridge between God and the soul" SHRI DHYANYOGI

a “universal scaling system”, ... this discrete scaling manifests itself in acoustic systems, as is well known in western classical music, where the two scalings correspond, respectively, to passing to the octave (frequency ratio of 2) and transposition (the perfect fifth is the frequency ratio 3/2), with the approximate value log(3)/ log(2) ∼ 19/12 responsible for the difference between the “circulating temperament” of the Well Tempered
Clavier and the “equal temperament” of XIX century music. It is precisely the irrationality of log(3)/ log(2) which is responsible for the noncommutative [complementary opposites as yin/yang] nature of the quotient corresponding to the three places {2, 3,∞}. -
Math professor (Fields medal) Alain Connes on quantum music as noncommutative time-frequency origin of reality from infinite spiral of perfect fifths!
Our brain is an incredible ....perceives things in momentum space of the photons we receive and manufactures a mental picture. Which is geometric. But what I am telling you is that I think ...that the fundamental thing is spectral [frequency]....And somehow in order to think we have to do an enormous Fourier Transform...on geometry. By talking about the "music of shapes" is really a fourier transform of shape and the fact that we have to do it in reverse. Alain Connes, 2012
Stanford Quantum physicist Eddie Oshins:
This representation only works for the (more fundamental) 1/2-integral representations (i.e. spinors/turns/quaternions) but also lets one build the vector and tensor representations. The converse does not hold....this property of "noncommutivity" in itself might be valuable in some way.
My claim, and original idea, has been that this is circumnavigating a T'ai Chi (Yin/Yang) symbol! More recently (Oshins, 1993b) I have suggested that this proximate technique can be used to realize Wing Chun kung-fu's "bong sau/tan sau" movement out of the Kauffman/Oshins "quaternionic arm" discussed and referenced below in end note 5.
I believe that this may be a way to get mind to code the relative relationship of part of oneself with respect to the rest of oneself (self-referential motion) and can explain the concepts of being "centered"/"one"/"integrated"/"extended"/"whole" etc. which one strives for in meditation.

Manfred Euler's 2013 description of acoustic STM - Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy builds on his previous connections between the quantum acoustic realms.
Binaural hearing is the acoustic analog of the interferometer or double-slit experiments. The two ears can be regarded as an acoustic interferometer, which recovers the phase difference of signals between the two ears by binaural correlation.

Near-field imaging with sound waves compelling demonstrates the inadequacy of pictorial realism and promotes more abstract views of the reality displayed.
A comparison of sound and matter waves clarifies that these [noncommutative] limitations exist in principle.
2016: de Broglie clocks as synchronization: a tangible model of how mass emerges.
matter waves are locally in phase with the particle clocks (de Broglie's Law of Phase Harmony).

The clock runs forever so it's self-sustaining (consciousness-energy). It resonates with the quantum vacuum. The harmonic beats create dynamic energy.

So then you have a "phase particle" that can be faster than the speed of light - superluminal - and a "mass particle" that is slower than the speed of light as the "group wave" of the "phase wave." The beats of the phase wave then are "in resonance" with the quantum vacuum - and so create mass from the massless field, explaining the Higgs mechanism.

"Universal coherence" - a "mind boggling outlook."

Phase harmony in de Broglie theory relates a local periodic phenomenon (the 'particle clock') to a periodic propagating field in such a way that relativistic invariance is satisfied. If a similar phenomenon in the cell is relevant it should couple the global oscillation pattern locally with periodic (mechanic, electric, biochemical ???) processes.

Coherence as consciousness.
"Ghost Tones"

Manfred Euler is a Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Kiel.

It's actually a Klein Bottle so you can't see the 5th dimension.

The red is a logarithmic singularity - but that is just classical physics.

So the foundation of reality is quantum - which is noncommutative phase as the 5th dimension.

So light as a photon is a point but as a wave it is nonlocal - but this means it is in 2 places at the same time - as the 5th dimension that is noncommutative.

People think that doesn't make sense - how can it be in two places at the same time? Actually basic music theory explains this.

So for example the Perfect Fifth is C to F as subharmonic 2/3 while the Perfect Fifth is C to G overtone harmonic as 3/2.

So C = 2 while F=3=G at the same time. That is noncommutative phase. It is also called "Fourier Uncertainty" or "time-frequency uncertainty" - and that is the true foundation of reality.

So for example de Broglie - studying relativity - realized Einstein had a problem - as energy goes to the speed of light then time as wavelength slows down, gets bigger. That means as frequency goes higher then time also gets bigger. That violates a fundamental property since Pythagoras that frequency is inverse to time as wavelength (from music theory).

So de Broglie realized since quantum physics is real there has to be a phase wave that is faster than the speed of light. So you have a mass wave that is the "group phase" - and then you have a particle phase that is called the "internal clock" or a 2nd clock that is the phase wave of the particle - also called the "pilot wave" - and this comes back from the future. So there is a Harvard physicist Andrew Strominger who works with Stephen Hawking - and says that the future already exists and reality is a holograph. So the 4D universe is actually a projection of this 5th dimension of noncommutative phase that is time-like.

This is how precognition is real.

It was Olivier Costa de Beauregard who emphasized that precognition was part of de Broglie's pilot wave model and in 1956 de Broglie said to Costa de Beauregard that there was "an incompatibility with our conventional notions of space and time." Nevertheless scientists have continued this parapsychology research based on de Broglie: pdf AY Temkin 2011

Peter Kingsley notes, "In terms not only of formal and structural analogies but also of historical contacts, there can be no separating the Thracian Orpheus [of Pythagorean equivalence] from central-Asiatic shamanic tradition." This connection with Taoism is also made explicit by the motif of the Pythagorean master Empedocles who, "dies a miraculous death by vanishing into thin air but who leaves a tell-tale item.... A more classic Taoist concept is that of achieving the divine state either by fashioning a spirit-body...thoughtfully leaving a pile of discarded garments...."

### Freemasons really do promote the lies of Archytas!

Mass-mind control exposed. How many of the mass-mind controlled will refuse to watch this video?
My dad was a corporate attorney - and so he was a big support of the fake "libertarian" corporate elite movement that kicked off in the 1970s - an actual neo-fascist movement pushed by economists from the University of Chicago, based on Straussian Neo-Platonic philosophy. So James Buchanan was a big pusher of this fascism along with Milton Friedman - and then after the "Fair" coverage regulate was dismantled then the "news" could just promote these mass mind control lies. haha. This stuff goes way back - like I said - back to Plato! But you got to start some where.

My dad was big into Plato - so in high school I studied Plato big time. I even went to St. John's College in Santa Fe to see about studying the "classics" in their original Greek. But I knew something was fishy because of my music training - I knew that music theory was the real origin of the pythagorean theorem and so the Pythagorean Theorem was wrong! haha. Of course I had to keep that a secret. But if you really study math and music you find out that Plato and Archytas lied about Pythagorean music theory. Economist Michael E. Hudson also exposed this as he started out studying music theory - and he also is from Minneapolis! http://www.phoenixmasonry.org/mackeys_history_volume_7.htm

Freemasons really do promote the lies of Archytas!

So you can see here the Freemasons promoting FAKE Pythagorean philosophy from Archytas - and this is also what Plato promoted. Then stating this philosophy is "Justice." Nope. This is the Big Lie - it is built into the Western music as mass mind control even! But that Western music is the foundation of Western math and everything built on it: Economics Professor Michael Hudson concurs about the Devil’s Interval: “The worst problem in tuning occurs in the interval of three whole tones, e.g., between C and F#/Gb in the “natural” untempered methods of tuning. If the ratio of the octave is 2:1, then the ratio of C to F# represents the square root of two — an irrational number. (Burkert [1972:441] notes that the harmonic mean discovered in the context of Pythagorean music theory has a major use precisely in approximating the square root.)” Michael Hudson’s essay, “Music as an Analogy for Economic Order in Classical Antiquity” in Jürgen Backhaus (ed.), Karl Bücher. Theory, History, Anthropology, Non-Market Economies (Marburg:Metropolis Verlag, 2000): pp. 113-35 citing Burkert, Walter (1972), Lore and Science in Ancient Pythagoreanism (Harvard University Press, 1972).

So this philosophy of reality not only was the basis for the Greek Miracle creating western science but also the elite control of the technology – justified still by the logarithmic fake Pythagorean cover-up. Quote “The necessity of tempering pure intervals, defined by the ratio of integers, is one of the great themes of Plato’s Republic. In his allegorical form, “citizens” modeled on the tones of the scale must not demand “exactly what they are owed” but must keep in mind “what is best for the city.” Ernest McClain, The Myth of Invariance: The origins of the Gods, Mathematics and Music, from the Rg Veda to Plato (Nicholas-Hays, 1976), p. 11.

Economics Professor Hudson clarifies McClain’s promotion of Plato’s fake Pythagorean cover-up: Quote “Pythagoras became the patron saint of the most anti-democratic clubs. They used the principles of musical harmony as a patina of pseudo-science to give intellectual legitimacy to a movement whose worldly consequences were anything but harmonious. The Pythagorean clubs became a network of civic cults rising above the local sphere to which most clubs related. There seems to have been some connection with the Delphi temple (the name Pythagoras means “voice of Pythia,” the snake-goddess of Delphi and its oracle). They have been likened to the Free Masons, in that they served as a kind of Council of Foreign Relations or New World Order…. Archytas [the collaborator of Plato] developed the musical scale into a political metaphor for the scales of justice. What gave music this imagery of social balance and just proportion was the ability of its mathematics of harmonic (“geometric”) proportions to serve as an analogy for how inequities of wealth and status rendered truly superior men equal in proportion to their virtue — which tended to reflect their wealth. By this circular logic the wealthy were enabled to rationalize their hereditary dominance over the rest of the population.”

And as I pointed out Cargill relied on its Freemason connections for this elite corporate-state monopoly U.S. imperialism! Anthony Sutton, just as he exposed Wall St. creating the Bolsheviks - Anthony Sutton also exposed the Freemasonic elite secret socities controlling the U.S. - Skull and Bones, and various other "think tanks" as secret societies. Professor David F. Noble exposed this as well when he was an M.I.T. history professor and he got fired for it - he proved in a lawsuit - backed by his academic history association. So his book "America By Design" is all about how even science is controlled by these Freemason societies - along with his book "The Religion of Technology" and his book "Forces of Production."

All his books are a must read for deprogramming the mass mind control. He traces the NeoPlatonic philosophy to the Benedictine Monks of the 9th Century spreading it - from the Muslims - and then to the Freemasonic societies creating modern science. His final book traces the problem back to the origins of civilization in the Near East Levant and how before that in early Sumeria there was a more balanced ecological culture. So this problem is only 10,000 years old at most while modern biological humans are 100,000 years old. Taoism is from the older culture that was dominant for 90% of modern biological human history, the San Bushmen culture. 90% of human history is based on small tribes as hunter-gatherers and so biologically we are aligned to live in tribes no bigger than 150 people - and split into smaller bands.

### Why Chaos was wrongly translated from the Taoist word Hun

Original Daoist meaning of Hundun is harmonic wisdom - as the secret of 3 in 1 unity - eternal complementary opposites. googlebook link

Quote
But an approach more in harmony with the mystical "naturalism" of the Daode jing suggests an even broader range of archaic associations and images, especially in relation to the meaning of the ideas of "one" and "three."

In Western scholarship as early as 1891, C. De Harlez remarked that hun "is generally rendered 'chaos, chaotic,' But the choice of this term is unfortunate.

N. J. Giardot

1 hour ago, Wu Ming Jen said:
Void is yin yand is chaos in the negative sense

N.J. Giardot:

Quote
Here it is necessary to speak of the paradoxical idea of an "ordered chaos" since the idea of hun is not presented as an absolute chaos, disorder or confusion. Rather, as it seems manifest in these passages, there is a harmonious "order" of life and time inherent in the Daoist idea of the "chaos" before creation.

Myth and Meaning in Early Daoism examines some of the earliest texts associated with the Daoist tradition from the comparative history of religions and finds a thematic and soteriological unity rooted in the mythological symbolism of hundun, the primal chaos being and principle that is foundational for the philosophy and practice of the Dao as creatio continua in cosmic, social, and individual life. Dedicated to the proposition that ancient Chinese texts and traditions are often best understood from a broad interdisciplinary and interpretive perspective, this work when it was written challenged many prevailing conceptions of the Daode jing and Zhuangzi as primarily “philosophical” texts without any religious significance or affinity with the later sectarian traditions. While controversial and at times playfully provocative, the methodology and findings of this book are still important for the ongoing scholarship about Daoism in China and the world.

# Myth and Meaning In Early Daoism

So I have posted again on thetaobums why the Taichi is wuji - as wuji was a later term, a later image created during the Song Dynasty. But this commonly gets rendered as the Western concept of chaos in the negative sense:

### Local Activity Principle - Page 394 - Google Books Result

Klaus Mainzer, ‎Leon O. Chua - 2013 - ‎Broken symmetry
In the beginning, there was simply a nothingness, an ultimate non-being (wuji) or pregnant chaos (hundun).
There is a lot of confusion about these very simple yet radical concepts!!

As I have pointed out - the Tai Chi IS the wuji and yet even Taoist "experts" get this wrong. Fortunately some know the secret.

1 hour ago, Wu Ming Jen said: Void is yin yand is chaos in the negative sense. wu chi gives birth to tai chi.
Actually you are preaching a later Song Dynasty corruption - there was no Wu chi symbol before the Song Dynasty, just the Tai Chi symbol. I have gone into detail about this expose in my pdf and on my blog. So you are making a common error that even supposed academic experts on Neidan make! haha. Here is the response I got from Pregadio:

Hello,

All I can say at the moment is:

(1) Wuji is a stage above Taiji. It is, as you say, a "static" timeless Emptiness.

(2) Zhou Dunyi 周敦頤 does not discuss this stage. He only says it is the root of Taiji.

(3) In the Daoist interpretation of the “old” Taiji picture, the empty circle at the center is the Wuji.

(4) The purpose is to show that, at the center of Yin and Yang, there is Emptiness.

(5) This means that Yin and Yang allow Emptiness to operate (用) in space and time.

(6) Unlike Neo-Confucianism, Daoism says that Wuji and Taiji are ultimately equivalent.

I completely agree with you that there is a connection between cosmology and music.

4:53 PM (56 minutes ago)

 to me

From the point of view of Wuji, there is no difference with Taiji. — From the point of view of Taiji, it is lower than Wuji.

Fabrizio

 to me

5:16 PM (35 minutes ago)
I don’t know why Zong Mi shows the Taiji without the “empty circle” Maybe he wanted to show something else.

...................................................................................................

Pregadio referenced this image of the Tai Chi in his Cantong Qi: The Seal of the Unity of the Three analysis

He stated that the "hub" was the Emptiness and the yin-yang then revolved around that hub.

But that is not the oldest image of the Tai Chi - it is a later Song derivation.

So here is the oldest image of the Tai Chi.

Notice the difference.

NO HUB OF EMPTINESS.

It's yin-yang all the way down.

Eternally.

https://chinesemedicalclassics.wordpress.com/tag/tai-chi/

Now last night I posted the discussion of the "later" image of the  Tai Chi with the supposed hub.

The author who made that image spent his life clarifying that Wuji IS Taichi.

Quote
"The Emptiness from which existence comes forth is the central hub." p. 5

Wrong.

Pregadio is relying on the wrong meaning of the original Tai Chi symbol.

So then Buddhists cling to Pregadio using terms that lead Buddhists to incorrectly claim Taoism is based on a static timeless origin of reality - and that immortality means a person exists in this timeless realm and then interacts from this static timeless realm into the "illusion" of spacetime.

I have explained in great detail why this is not accurate but the above image difference simplifies the argument and clarifies the error that Pregadio made. See the side bar of this blog for more details on why wuji is Taiji.

Dr. Pregadio: Thank you for sharing your responses. In the book "Foundations on Internal Alchemy" it states this: "The whole process is ruled by Spirit....It's movement in 'non-doing' is called Original Spirit." I would like to explain that secret to you, in my opinion. Do you know this book in Chinese? "Theory on Yuan Qi of Taiji"

In the Theory on Yuan Qi of Taiji: "Taiji refers to the state of integrated yuan qi before the separation of heaven and earth. It is the great beginning and the great one." The state before the "separation of heaven and earth" is "wuji" which is mixed and blurry, when qi is generated and distributed to make "yuan qi integrated as one," namely "taiji."

# The Mind Inside Tai Chi: Sustaining a Joyful Heart

2015, YMAA

If you read the essay I referred to (Zhu Xi's Metaphysical System and the Role of the Taji (Great Ultimate) by Kim Han-Sang, 2013) it is quite clear Zhu Xi is emphatic that Taiji is wuji - at the same time. Not "prior." For me this completely is understandable in terms of noncommutative phase. As you state, in alchemy there is "forward" and "backward" processes at the same time as continual processes. That is noncommutative phase.

You have agreed about music theory and taoism which is my specialty. There is a very amazing cover-up of noncommutative phase in music theory. So I tried to explain this to you. But Louis de Broglie rediscovered this with his Law of Phase Harmony. So if shen is light, then when shen is turned around, then time is zero but, as de Broglie discovered, there is still noncommutative phase that is from the future - as quantum entanglement and also as reverse entropy energy.

So Zong Mi emphasized that qi, from the Zhou Dynasty character, qi means to put shen under jing or fire under water to create steam. So when the light is turned around, the shen is put under jing to create steam as reverse entropy - or qi energy that is what Master Yan Xin calls a "virtual information field." So it is the secret of reversing aging, bigu, levitation, precognition, yang shen, etc.
Sorry I realize that is not very clear - but I hope you read that 2013 essay on Zhu Xi about his emphasize on how the Taiji is the wuji - and the wuji is the Taiji. I think the "hub" metaphor too easily becomes a static sense of space that is actually from a Western classical physics view point.

So in science it is now stated EPR=ER which means that 4D spacetime arises from micro quantum virtual black holes, as Noble physicist Gerard t'Hooft states (Feb. 2017). So the neidan (qigong) masters can leave their bodies at will by turning the light around, so their individual spirit merges with universal spirit, as zero time of light. Again light has no rest mass but does have a 'Hidden momentum" that is reverse entropy phonon energy - and so this is why it is stated Yuan Qi is formless and the Taiji. In  other words there is continual motion of qi energy as the Taiji that is wuji at the same time. There are two time clocks - one from the future that then changes the past to harmonize the present.

Zhu Xi's Metaphysical System and the Role of the Taji (Great Ultimate) by Kim Han-Sang, 2013.

Although Zhu Xi learned of the Taiji as 'the principle of origin of the universe' from his teacher Li Tong as early as in 1161....It was under the influence of Zhang Shi that Zhu Xi came to consider Taiji in connection with Xing....Taiji is not seen as some primordial undivided material stuff or matter, but clearly is stated as being the metaphysical Dao, as well as containing all the principles of movement and quiescence, and of yin and yang....

Taiji is just the li of all things in the universe....Even before heaven and earth have yet to exist, there must first be this li.

Behind the movement and quiescence is the principle of movement and quiescence and this is what is known as Taiji.

However, the reason why the [Diagram of the Great Ultimate] talks of "Indeterminate yet the Great Ultimate" and says that "Taiji is originally wuji" is not because wuji gave birth to Taiji after wuji, or because wuji existed before Taiji.

Taiji is the metaphysical Dao ....Taiji is that metaphysical entity that is one with the world of change and regulates it while accompanying it, without undergoing change itself.

wuji serves to define the character of Taiji as without form, but characterized by the presence of principle.

Taiji as wuji is not a primordial material substance - it is also different from the Buddhist notion of emptiness. It is the ground-providing principle behind phenomena that allow transformations in the phenomenal world to occur.

The Dao, in its ultimate and Absolute aspect, is metaphysically prior to or above this in timeless purity and empty non-being (wu)

So this pretty much sums up your wrong view of Daoism.

Quote
The standard translation "the ultimate nonbeing" (Chan, 1963; Neville 1980) or "Ultimate of Nonbeing" (Zhang, 2002) has actually reversed the Chinese word order, and renders it as jiwu - the ultimate wu.

Quote
However even within the Daoist tradition, Wang Bi's interpretation of Laozi's wuji (Chapter 28) is simply "inexhaustible" (wuqiong), and this shows clearly he did not identify wuji with wu itself.
Quote

Nevertheless, this does not mean that there was a time when Taiji did not exist....Taiji was initially boundless because its existence was beyond both space and time.

Quote
Taiji was initially just one qi, which then separated into yang and yin through motion and rest. ...it was a common view ...to regard Taiji as one qi - before yin and yang are divided.
Quote
vacuums have energy and energy is convertible into mass is to deny that vacuums are empty....vacuums are far from empty. Understood in this light, ...taiji is much more intelligble and plausible.
Quote
...Taiji, the supreme ultimate, is the absolute self-sufficient and self-contained perfection. Exactly because it is relative to nothing else, it is identical with the Boundless (Wuji).
Quote
...Taiji is simply Being itself; hence it is both supremely massive and boundless (wuji).

The only thing that gets confused with primordial chaos, where we all came from and where we return is the human mind, the shinning mind never left, began or ended. Stop being silly.

Notice the qigong master who befriended me clearly describes how his mind as the "shining" mind is his spiritual ego - his self-awareness, not the yuan qi that does the healing on its own as the Emptiness:

Quote
The key is being open to listening, that's the hardest thing. If you get five seconds of focus you're doing something. You slow yourself down, to maintain your focus, breathing is an important part, if you can pull the visualization without losing the connection, then it's much easier to shift the energy. If I inhale and exhale and be more objective, not so subjectively pulled into the experience, it would be like taking a snap-shot, looking at the snap-shot, keeping it steady while I was breathing. I could then keep my focus on something for an extended period of time. All I had to do was wait and the energy would shift on its own.

Qigong master Jim Nance

So this describes the "doing" in the "non-movement" of the Yuan Shen.

The "doing" is the Yuan Qi that is also called the "golden key" of Zhong Gong.

So I'll quote again the book I was just referencing:

Quote
The "two" are separated by a chaotic void or hollow emptiness, but this void is alive with the invisible life-force of qi.

So as I point out in my pdf - the character for qi from the Zhou Dynasty - the oldest character of qi is "fire under water" or shen under jing - this is the heaven and earth that then creates qi - or in reverse - the qi is the three in one unity - the qi is always already creating heaven and earth in harmony.

This is called "noncommutative phase" -

So shen as light - in terms of Western science is a "point" - but in fact that the same time shen is also an infinite wave - that is in two places with the point. This infinite wave is momentum energy - called the "Hidden momentum" of light - that is the secret of the Yuan Qi.

So when light is turned around it has zero rest at zero time but in fact because of noncommutative phase - there is a 5th dimension that is "time-life" - it is the hidden momentum that is "relative entropy" energy or Yuan qi energy that qigong master Yan Xin calls the "virtual information field."

Quote
....the "emptiness" of the center, that third term or primordial principle (called yuanqi or hunyuan in later Daoist texts) that constantly connects all phenomenal forms, images, things with the mother.

So it is not light or "shining mind" as you incorrectly claim.

Quote
It is the empty gap of the center that allows for the original movement, sound or flow of the life-principle.

### Kang Bed-stove: conversion of Hunter Silverfire TLUD Inverted Downdraft heater-stove

So the key insight I realized - duh - is I needed the stove below the actual "ground" heater - the Kang bed-stove heater system. This is the only way I can get "negative pressure." As you can see from putting the photos together - I am missing a 90 degree elbow that busted on me - actually I have a 4 inch one that might work - but anyway. I tried it with a straight shot and there was hardly any smoke leaking - unlike all my previous designs (all 2 of them before now).

So the above design then, instead of just a one straight duct pipe, has two pipes connected by the 90 degree elbow - so the exhaust eventually comes back out by the stove. That way I have two hitting pipes in the ground - that will be into an insulated tent-A frame. So with just the insulation it will be 50 degrees - under 3 feet of leaves. Then with the gasifier stove that will store the heat exhaust into the clay.

 Gasifier Stove aka TLUD aka Chinese Burner is secret of alchemy!

So the other improvement - as I read up on this subject into the night - is you want to make sure that the "crimping" end of the duct pipe is facing up and away from the chimney. The main reason for this is because the smoke exhaust heat is being "pushed" up and away and so it's not going to leak nearly as much if it is push into the other pipe. So I had not done that when I tried it out - and as I said there was still much less leaking, due to the negative pressure. So with that crimping improvement then it should be able to handle being turned around again.

That way I can slow the exhaust down enough to get all the heat out of the exhaust. But at the same time I will not have any fire hazard - unless I get creosote build up but I can use my chimney sweep to clean the duct pipe. I'll have to take it out of the clay - but since the smoke is supposed to get very hot if the wood is dry, from the gasifier, then there should be less creosote. Also since the pipe is insulated into the clay - then it cools down less so less creosote.

O.K. so then to make sure I have no leaks - I will also get aluminum duct tape. Now normally I would not aluminum but since it is exhaust it is not as hot and its designed for hot temps. Also normally you don't want galvanized duct pipe - but since it is in the clay - then any zinc oxide fumes will get absorbed. Only with welding does the fire get hot enough to achieve the "boiling" point of zinc oxide - other wise you get melting of zinc but then it just oxidizes again back into a solid very quickly. So the Rocket Mass people say they just "burn off" the zinc by doing a couple outside burns and also again that the clay would absorb any zinc fumes.

But carbon monoxide leakage is still a big concern - despite these three precautions I am taking - of the negative pressure, the crimping on the inside of the pipes and the aluminum duct tape. So then I will get a battery operated carbon monoxide detector just to be safe, as a precaution. But the downward draft secret burns off the carbon monoxide:

Combustion from the top creates a gasification zone, with the gas escaping downwards through ports located at the base of the burner chamber. The gas mixes with additional incoming air to provide a secondary burn. Most of the CO produced by gasification is oxidized to CO2 in the secondary combustion cycle; therefore, gasification stoves carry lower health risks than conventional cooking fires.
But on the plus side - the duct pipes get hot from the heat and that is the whole point - to leverage the heat of the exhaust and use all that heat. As for the actual heat from the stove - I will have the stove in my water hole - and the point is then to heat the water hole, to make sure my water source does not freeze in the winter. So then also the stove will be outside of the insulated hut, which then means I don't have to worry about carbon monoxide from the stove itself smoking.

And so this is a dramatically different design than what I had considered before. But I did not really totally understand the TLUD stove mechanism. I kept studying it and realized in fact this TLUD design - pronounced T-LUD - is actually considered a key strategy for "sustainable" in "developing" countries. This T-LUD is also called a Chinese Burner but it was also called the "Inverted Down Draft" stove.

Now personally I much prefer the name Inverted Down Draft stove. Because, for example, I had made biochar in that big pit - you can see in the above photo - and the idea if you light it from above, like a TLUD - but then the oxygen gets pulled from below as the fire burns down - and so this cuts off the oxygen of the bottom wood, so that it remains a charcoal, burning without oxygen.

So it would appear that is how the TLUD works but now that is not quite it. So because you have the primary air on the bottom of the stove - in the Hunter its in the front of the stove, but also the back of the stove - and this pulls in the oxygen from below and that is the only source of oxygen for the wood's primary oxidation burn, since the wood has to burn in the down draft direction.

So even if you light a pile of wood from above it would still pull its oxygen from above but by then covering the top of the stove of the TLUD, that forces the oxygen to be relied on from below - hence the Inverted Down Draft name is more accurate. But they didn't stick with the name since it's more difficult to explain.

Who's they? Dr. TLUD. So this design won some award around 10 years ago and since then has taken off in being promoted around the world. But in reality it's called a Chinese Burner - the Chinese were using this gasification secret for who knows how long?

I tried to look that up. We know that Kang Bed-stoves go back to at least 1000 BCE. I am quite interested because to bring the fire down - as an "inversion" - is the secret of alchemy!

So then the carbon monoxide gets separated from the primary oxidation since the fire is now below the charcoal that is above, as the oxygen source is from the bottom of the stove.

This enables a much cleaner burn because then the oxygen from below is also rerouted up the side of the stove to come out the top as hot oxygen that ignites the carbon monoxide.

So then when the Hunter is working properly you see a blue flame at the "secondary" burner that is an inch and half down into the stove.

Our stove lets air flow from in at the bottom and out at the top, which is either an inverted downdraft or an updraft, depending on how fancy you want to sound. But the fuel still burns from the top down, unlike the action in other wood stoves.
So this person is stating that TLUD and inverted downdraft mean the same thing.  Nope. Because the key concept of the downward draft is that the fire is being pulled down since the only oxygen source is from below.

You don't believe me?

Go to the source "inventor" of the terminology:

While technically accurate, the concept of an inverted downdraft was difficult to explain.
Indeed it is! You want people to understand how the stove works - so use the accurate terminology and then allow people to realize that the concept is actually quite unique.

Just lighting a pile of wood from above is not the same as an inverted downward draft.
Therefore, the ability to add additional fuel while the stove is burning does not automatically mean that it is operating in the TLUD mode. What is happening to the newly input wood is that it is being pyrolyzed by the heat that is coming upward.
So in other words - just because you have an "updraft" does not mean it's an "inverted down draft"!!
Therefore, it is not the same as the physical-chemical processes in the downward migrating pyrolysis front.
So then T-LUD to be "accurate" needs a qualifying additional phase:
a process of “”top-lit updraft with migrating pyrolysis front”,
So it's being pulled down because the oxygen is coming up from below, not from above.

So then there are lots of academic physics analysis of this secret of gasification burning - why? Because it is much more efficient in producing heat without any pollution - so you get more heat and less pollution. A great deal. Again the Chinese knew this secret a long time ago - thousands of years ago.

Now think about it - Shen is Fire and the whole key of alchemy is to get the Shen below the water - to create steam as qi energy. The Steam in this case is the highly charged gasification fumes that are then burned off from secondary oxygen from below.

So you put the Shen fire below the charcoal that is emitting the carbon monoxide fumes - and this separates the secondary burning of the fumes from the primary burning of the oxidation in the flame of the fire.

### Why the majority of Thedaobum posters are wrong: Syncretic System = western b.s.

There is a dominant New Age right-wing "syncretic system" view over on thetaobums. This is due to the belief of no need to really question Western philosophy, having been deeply brainwashed by it since an early age. So then Daoism (or Taoism) - correct spelling is one of the key requirements for the syncretic group! - insists that their Western New Age perspective is the defining approach and then Taoism is a kind of agglomeration after the fact.

So I recently posted several exposes on the promotion of Pan-Aryanism on thetaobums - this praises the "caucasian mummies" in China and in the literally same sentence claims Aryanism is not about race but culture and language. haha. I pointed out the Nazis tried to say the same thing. So then now we have a promotion - of course - of Crowley and Tarot cards.

As I've stated before, Crowley was a fake since he could not even do the "O at a D" as I documented from Colin Wilson's book "The Occult" citing Rom Landau's God is My Adventure. And for people who don't know what the "O at a D" is that is fine since a person, even if they can do it, should not as it is misuse of the energy. Of course I still do this "yin qi" energy healing due to my strange circumstances.

So the basic problem is not realizing there is a fundamental break with Western philosophy - that Freemasonry, the basis of Western occultism, is actually Platonic materialistic idealism. And so someone brainwashed into this thinking will not even realize the problem and instead think that "nondualism" or "monism" is the same as nonwestern shamanic philosophy.

I guess this is understandable since as Charlene Spretnak points out - the issue is very "abstract" and so most would not be able to grapple with it intellectually. As I have detailed, with my online documentation over the years, I had to "unlearn" Western thinking and only recently did I discover Eddie Oshins had made the same insight about Taoism philosophy based on noncommutative phase.

So then people will argue yes but isn't noncommutative phase still Western philosophy? It is the foundation of quantum physics, the secret of nonlocal entanglement energy-information, but for quantum physics to work as a science, this philosophical quantum logic has to be "converted" to the symmetric math. And this is what Eddie Oshins does in his quantum physics analysis, as he still is a Western scientist.

But he understood the deep paradox involved and someone posted online - from his alma mater - that Oshins was mentally insane and struggled with it for years - implying this is why he died young. I asked his colleague, math professor Louis Kauffman about this, but got no response. Instead all he said about Oshins was positive. But again Kauffman was assuming that Oshins was converting the noncommutative phase into symmetric Western mathematics, as Kauffman himself still does.

So this is why a "unified field theory" is forever out of the grasp of Western science and yet the ecological crisis keeps accelerating. People then get upset about the "holier than thou" argument - that such self-righteous views are just pompous moralizing and not realistic in our postmodern global market, blah blah. But as I have emphasized - music theory does not need to rely on morals. I am simply presenting the empirical truth of the noncommutative phase infinite time-frequency natural resonance reality. This truth was the core of the original human culture in Africa, from which all modern humans come from, the San Bushmen culture. This is also the truth of Taoism and also the oldest philosophy of India - the three gunas. Dr. Victor Grauer traced the spread of San Bushmen culture around the world via music harmonics.

But instead the supposed syncretic view is actually just Westernization of nonwestern views - posing as being "syncretic." This is not only wrong morally but wrong logically. The West has no lineage, like yoga or Taoist training, of producing real energy spiritual masters from the training. Instead there have been some mystics on occasion who often have to remain in hiding to deal with their spiritual experiences. So also now Westernization has spread across China and India and Africa - so that the real lineages of nonwestern shamanic spiritual masters is quickly being lost, as the ecological crisis also accelerates. This is a dynamic that the "syncretic" postmodern Western worldview of Platonic philosophy will not even acknowledge - the Brahmin nondualism is still based on a symmetric logic that does not even understand the training properly of complementary opposites.

Fortunately my free pdf archive Idiot's Guide to Taoist Alchemy Neidan Qigong, etc. continues to build hits, and so has a steady readership. Some say the writing is too complex - too much science. For them I counter that I have the document chock full of images to provide easy explanations.

The reason that a document or writing will not in any way solve the problem is because writing as a medium is left brain dominant whereas the problem is one of spiritual possession - of an energy blockage of a lower frequency shen or consciousness. So the Taoist training requires constant "exorcisms" of these lower frequency blockages - based on emotions and nutrition and the change of seasons, and our surroundings, etc.

### Woosh! Metropolis Hunter Stove-Heater conversion part 1 The Chinese Burner

So I light up the Hunter Stove but I didn't put enough kindling tinder on top for the proper burn. At first it was just all smoke since the wood was wet. But then suddenly this loud Woosh! sound kicked in and the gasifier tripler burn was in action! Suddenly there was no exhaust and I was basically making biochar. I closed off the bottom air vent and the thing kept kicking out heat and just heat exhaust out of the chimney.

As the vid from Todd Albi states - you have to rely on faith to know if the Hunter is still burning - but the reason it goes into gasification is because the internal burner is 1200 degrees Fahrenheit - since the fumes are getting burned off through the secondary and tertiary burn chambers.

And so then yesterday I bought duct pipe - and there are three different rows at Menards for duct pipe. At first I was in the double walled insulated and I had bought that for the conversion of the Survivor rocket stove. This time I knew better - or thought I did. I was still in double wall just not insulated. I loaded up on a T-joint and 90 degree elbows, etc. But I didn't want to spend all that money.

Luckily I somehow discovered a whole other aisle of duct pipe that is the single wall steel - and also you have to snap it together. Finally the stuff I wanted and so the total was under 50. But after I hooked it all together - the 30 gauge snapped together for 3 inch. But the thicket 26 gauge would not snap. Part of the snap mechanism was not aligned and the stuff was too thick for that smaller diameter. Luckily they only had one left of those but I had cleared out Menards for the other lighter gauge as well. So after I hooked up all the duct pipe - I dubbed this contraption, Metropolis! I'll post a photo after I got to Home Depot to see if they have more duct pipe. So it is like alchemy as the fire is circulated down again - to get "under" the fumes so to speak. So then I got some leaks from the duct pipe but I had not connected them real strong - so also the wood was wet and so I never got to gasifier stage. So then - now I need some more duct pipe - and another 90 degree elbow. So I tried using the 4 inch double walled insulated elbow but it was leaking smoke. So I pushed the duct pipe in better and tried to fix any crimping. Now I need to get 3 more lengths of duct pipe plus an elbow and maybe a shorter piece if possible - to run out of the stove. But I think this contraption will actually work - as I had 80% smoke coming out of the actual duct pipes - at the end, not leaks. So the question remains if I am getting any back smoke from lack of draft. But I think it is still pushing the smoke up from the stove and when it gets hotter it should push better. So I'll buy aluminum metal duct pipe tape to seal off any more leaks. Then I should be good to go for a final run of my new Metropolis Woosh! stove-heater gasifier. So the Hunter Stove is said to be "known as a Chinese Burner." Just what is that? Certain stove designs are, in effect, gasifiers working on the updraft principle: The air passes up through the fuel, which can be a column of rice hulls, and is combusted, then reduced to carbon monoxide by the residual char on the surface. The resulting gas is then burnt by heated secondary air coming up a concentric tube. Such a device behaves very much like a gas stove. This arrangement is also known as a Chinese burner. So I got that from googling "Chinese burner" - but it's the image that finally really explains how this Hunter stove works. I kept wondering where does the secondary burn take place - and now we see that the carbon monoxide gas is what leaks out to the secondary air chamber on the sides!! And combusts from that hot air on the sides. Ah so that's how it works. Funny how the Hunter Silverfire website is still not that clear on the image. So I posted the photo above - I emailed the owner of Silverfire to let him know the results of my experiment. No gasification! Maybe if I had really pushed it with having totally dry wood, and really letting it burn. But even with the air vent fully open on the bottom, with the pot over the top, the chimney effect was not good enough to get the fire really burning. So I will use the long duct pipes as indirect heat via clay off the sides of the stove and also the chimney. I will increase the chimney effect, and then surround the chimney in clay as well. The back of the stove has to get air flow, obviously, as does the front. ## Monday, July 17, 2017 ### So the end of the Pan-Aryan exposes - Finally! The "Pan-Aryanist" over on thetaobums has finally declared the sublime kernal of his ideology - that the Zoroastrian Aryans were some kind of progressive utopic "homeland" in contrast to the Aryans that went into India. Wow news to me! So I google Cyrus women's rights empire - and immediately his claim got debunked. But of course he would not response to my evidence and he himself presented no evidence. haha. That's how ideology works! I was just waiting to find out what strange wacky views this person really believed in as he rarely clearly stated his claim. For example he insisted that "Caucasian mummies" were not about race. And when he meant Aryan he just meant "Western China" and not the Tarim basim, even though he put it all into one sentence and his source meant Aryans in the Tarim Basin. haha. Whatever! When I pursued his claim that Europeans were not from Proto-Indo-Europeans but rather Proto-Indo-Iranians (Aryans) - he said what he really meant is no one can deny the influence of Zoroastrianism on Western religion. Oh - whatever. So anyway people have strange views and it is supposed to be a Taoist website but the main posters on the site are right-wing white dudes clinging to their Western worldviews. haha. In fact I thought - from reading the person's energy - Nungali - I was sure he was a "she" - but it's kind of like Drumpf - I saw him talking on t.v. and immediately I read his energy stuck in his lower body as a number 1 perv predator ejaculation addiction black hole. Usually I make a point to mute him if he's on the boob-tube. But I forgot this time and his voice conveys his energy. The problem is people like to be "titillated" even if they won't admit it - and more importantly they don't realize that Drumpf is sucking off their energy. But as Nafeez Ahmed exposed around a year ago there is this Russian-Europe-U.S. Aryan right wing fascist patriarchal brotherhood going on - I just call it the Chimp crackdown - fascists suffer from being closeted with ejaculation addiction - as with Drumpf's mentor Roy Cohn, and the FBI director, and Hitler - all closeted. So that mentality is the new "cutting edge" of the trajectory of the tantric technology. Speaking of which I got my Hunter Stove-heater with the 3 chamber gasifier Chinese design. I'll try it out tonight when it cools down - and see how clean the burn is with just one chimney section. Then I'll get more duct pipes to create a 2 pipe ground mass heater. Also I have ordered a 10 inch cast iron pan to cover the burn hole as the iron soaks up the heat and radiates it for the heater. The only thing about the stove is it has to be cleaned out every day by removing the chimney and the dumping the stove upside down. That is fine with me - I guess you can get a few burns before really needing to empty it. But you don't have to keep feeding it all the time, as with the rocket stove and it burns cleaner even. Going back on thetaobums was interesting - to research and expose their whole Aryan claims but lots of creepy right-winger New Age fascists on that site. Unfortunately the New Age scene attracts a lot of fascists. Morris Berman predicted this would happen again - with his analysis of Western esoteric politics. That's one reason he moved to Mexico I guess. haha. Thanks for posting a reply with evidence. What I did is actually look at the link I provided from the history professor - he wrote a history of the Empire of Cyrus. So he says that Cyrus did not practice any real Zoroastrian faith. I realize you idealize Cyrus and his Aryans - but the overall context is one of warfare in the iron age. So also you seem to gloss over the "Aryan Invasion" but I have already provided the evidence showing that there was a dramatic change after the chariots entered into the "Aryan homeland" that you idealize. So then you say there is no proof that Harrapan is not Indo-European - but in fact the new DNA study of the skeletons is definitively not Indo-European. I already posted that evidence. The geneticists have already stated this is the case. And the DNA evidence of the Aryan invasion of India is also well-documented. So this is a Taoist website - Taoist is traced back in archaeology to over 4,400 BCE. You want to idealize the iron age. Go ahead. That's your choice. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=10&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiG8bDTl5PVAhUCQSYKHRFSAp8QFghOMAk&url=https%3A%2F%2Fbusiness-school.exeter.ac.uk%2Fdocuments%2Fpapers%2Fleadership%2F396.pdf&usg=AFQjCNExehjkQ0BFZQfUA3Ie50webzt-tg Here is a legal Pdf analysis of Cyrus and human rights. Basically it calls Cyrus a "transformative tyrant." That is in contrast to the Law being the ruler of a land - not a divine person. Now my view is to consider humans from the perspective of biology and ecology - and so I consider the last 10,000 years of humanity to not be idealized. The original human culture did not have any warfare because every male was initiated into the complementary opposites resonance of reality as the truth - and so this enabled the lower emotions to be transcended. We are told that such a choice is not feasible in our current day - going back to the debate of the ancient Greeks against Sparta vis a vis Cyrus. So I did my master's thesis directly against the "natural law" that was inspired by Cyrus. physis meant natural law by the Ancient Greeks - compared to written law. So the Greeks argued, inspired by Cyrus, that is it "natural" to rule over whomever they can. So I was inspired by a book called The Racial Contract which denounced this natural law - just as some racists today argue that slaves lived in better conditions - getting free housing and food, etc. The book The Racial Contract was inspired by the book the Sexual Contract. So Cyrus thought the Spartans were weak because they worshiped a women - Helena. So my point, based on http://peterkingsley.com is that in fact - the ancient Greeks since Plato, had changed the meaning of Physis - and did not really understand true natural law based on complementary opposites. It may seem idealistic to reject history going back thousands of years but biologically modern humans have existed for 100,000 years at least. So in my view the real Taoist training and real Pythagorean training is from an earlier time when there was no war fare, the San Bushmen culture. You say Cyrus was known as a great humanitarian and then compare him to Stalin and Genghis Khan as not being great humanitarians. I consider that to be a false paradigm of comparison. Quote ### Genghis Khan was tolerant, kind to women – and a record-breaking ... Jul 12, 2014 - A review of The Mongol Empire: Genghis Khan, His Heirs and the Founding of Modern China, by John Man. The Mongols made China, argues ... So when you give evidence of Cyrus giving women rights - this is what I call "technofeminism" versus "ecofeminism." The fact is Cyrus implemented massacres just like any other imperial warmonger. If you want to idealize that - and compare him to Stalin and Genghis Khan - it's a fake debate that has nothing to do with Taoism. This is a Taoism website but a lot of people here just promote militarism, etc. ## Sunday, July 16, 2017 ### Surveying the Stinging Nettles Harvest So last year I harvested nettles in paper bags but this year I took a tarp and so what took me several trips last year, I did in one trip of harvesting this year. Then I dried it outside using a plexiglass window as a passive solar drier. But I could not get it to that "crunchy" final dried stage, outside, so I finished it off in the oven on warm - only an hour for two pans worth - using a pizza pan and a broil pain, both with the air holes. So then I smash it into the jars and this really compacts the load into a lot of mass - so it is intensified a lot. A haul like that will last me pretty much all winter. I was having stinging nettles every day all winter for about 6 months - and maybe I had two more jars than this. Let's see how much this stuff sells for. I just finished my shiitake harvest - I had a big shiitake mushroom meal every day. Right now the final shrooms are cooking on pizza and I still have the stems left to make a delicious Shiitake soup from the vitamix blender.

Right - so you can see with me compacting the nettles I harvested - that is probably $50 a jar's worth!! So it's$9 for 4 oz. and each jar I have is at least 1 pound of dried nettles - probably more.

So that's \$200 worth of greens.

I can harvest more - the only limitation is lack of tops for the glass jars. In our moving haste - I'm not sure I saved jar tops. I have one big jar with a sealing glass lid - but I think that's it.
