A signal that is static—that does not oscillate—is dead to us. A static signal carries no energy.
For example, estrogen. I’m 50 and have stopped menstruating. My estrogen is high. Women need estrogen to drop in order to menstruate. I need my estrogen to go down—but in order for it to be able to go down, first it has to go up—and there’s no room. In other words, I need it to go up, so that it can go down, so that it can go up, etc. It matters less what it is than in what direction it’s moving. Movement is energy. Movement, we can read.
It’s about perception. If I don’t register my estrogen going up, I don’t know it needs to come down. My estrogen becomes inert, its functionality lost.
We don’t want to be static. We want our iron, zinc, copper, etc. to be able to pulse. When they are able to pulse—when they are, in a sense, alive—they are able to function in myriad sanative ways. See “Copper That Cancer”: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26313539.
We are information that is being made manifest, moment-to-moment. I believe our illnesses are material manifestations of a deeper dysfunction. They are the waves upon the ocean. To cure them, we don’t slap at the waves, we fix the signal. Instead of looking at the waves, we need to examine the moon, the tide, and the currents.
