“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it.” —Albert Einstein
I recently was struggling with my health and found that transdermal olive oil (olive oil applied to the skin) helped me quite a bit. It seemed to help excess salt leave the cell. The olive oil was providing an exit route for excess sodium. Without the olive oil, the situation was static, trapped. Salt inside the cell, cell wall, area outside the cell. The olive oil was providing a medium via which the salt could move.
Does our world have a medium?
For a long time, I have thought of myself as matter (cells, mitochondria, etc.—my biology). I am matter, my dog is matter, and this tree I am leaning against is matter. Matter is the foreground, if you will—the subject. If life is a painting, matter is the subject, and the light of the world is the background.
But what if I am wrong? What if the “I” that is speaking to you, and the “I” that is listening inside you, are actually the same thing?
What if the “I” that is doing the observing, when I refer to myself as I, is not, in fact, matter, but light? Then light, in a sense, would be the subject, the foreground, and matter (or energy) would be the background. I suspect this—exotic as it may sound at the moment—is actually closer to the truth. The pineal gland at the center of the brain dubbed by René Descartes as the “seat of the soul” is not crystal. It is—unless it is under too much or too little pressure—light.
I suspect that the density of my pineal gland has a lot to do with how I see the world. The more relaxed I am, the more clearly I am able to see.
When I am too dense, the world looks too fast. It’s as if I am matter, and the world is energy. When I am too fast, the world looks too dense. It’s as if I am energy, and the world is matter. Things go most smoothly when the world and I are the same density & speed. When the world is light, and light is me.
My central nervous system seems to be capable of getting caught is a loop. There is a hidden variable at work in its understanding of the world: the medium, the “olive oil,” the fabric of the painting: light.
In order to vasoconstrict, I have to be vasoldilated. In order to vasodilate, I have to be vasoconstricted. I seem to function as a bellows functions. Before I can blow air out (contract), I have to pull air in (expand). In a way, the models I am looking at treat the universe as a hydraulic system. Only, instead of water, it’s light.
My brain is the problem (I say this with love). My body uses things directly, straightforwardly. My brain uses things paradoxically. Actually, my brain is the problem because it is smart. If I give it a brake pedal (e.g. zinc, which opposes copper, which conducts electricity), it uses it as permission to accelerate. If I give it a gas pedal (e.g. vitamin B6 or P5P, a good source of phosphorus, which is flammable at room temperature), it uses it as permission to decelerate.
But this can cause problems. For instance, with arginine.
When I give myself arginine, my CNS (central nervous system) wants to use it paradoxically. Because it knows arginine can be used to increase the arterial blood pressure—to increase the pressure in the system—instead, I use it to vasodilate—to decrease the pressure in the system. But arginine becomes nitric oxide, and lately I seem to sometimes veer toward getting caught in a nitric oxide loop.
I consume arginine, my brain reads it, and vasodilates. Then I get vertigo, and go into emergency need to increase the arterial pressure—so I call for more arginine, and the process starts all over again. Around and around I go, vasodilating, and increasing the arterial pressure, and vasodilating. At first, I thought my blood volume might be too low. But then I realized. My holographic volume is too high. I have too much “dark energy” (intracellular sodium). If the world is image, my image is too large. Because my image is too large, you don’t see that I’m too salty.
I learned a lot about the potential role of the NO/ONOO cycle (nitric oxide cycle)’s potential role in ME/CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) from Dr. Martin L. Pall, and I thank him.
