The pulse of our planet
Research carried out by E. Jacobi at the University of Düsseldorf showed that the absence of Schumann waves creates mental and physical health problems in the human body.19 Following up on this research, Professor R. Wever from the Max Planck Institute for Behavioral Physiology in Erling-Andechs began a study where he built an underground bunker that completely screened out magnetic fields. He then had student volunteers live in the bunker for four weeks, where they were hermetically sealed in this environment. Throughout the four weeks, Professor Wever noted that the student’s circadian rhythms diverged and that they suffered emotional distress and migraine headaches. Considering that they were young and healthy, no serious health conditions presented - which likely would not have been the case with older people or people with compromised immune systems. Wever then added the Schumann frequency back into the environment and the results were astonishing. After only a brief exposure to 7.8 Hz (the frequency which he had been screening out), the volunteers’ health stabilized.20
How can this subtle energy be understood in terms of western science?
First of all we need to realise that matter is really an illusion. All matter, on a sub-atomic scale, is energy. The nucleus of an atom, its material core, is infinitesimally small in comparison with the size of the atom. If the entire space within an atom were to be filled with particles the size of its nucleus, one million billion (1015) of such particles would be required to do so (Asimov, 1977). Therefore we can generalise and say: Everything is space, and space is everything. This space is ether: vibratory energy! John Keely wrote in 1893, “there is no dividing of matter and force into two distinct terms, as they both are one. Force is liberated matter. Matter is force in bondage” (Pond, 1996, p.90)
The whole cosmos, from the largest to the smallest part is essentially vibrating space.
Let us now consider the specific energetic make-up of our planet.
The surfaces of the earth and that of the ionosphere (100 km above the earth) form a cavity resonator. Its vibrations are known as the Schumann waves or resonances, which are very long waves of extremely low frequency, which are present everywhere in the atmosphere on this planet.
The Schumann Waves have been identified as part of the natural electromagnetic radiation, which is particularly important for life on this planet. The human brain actually resonates with these atmospheric waves.
NASA, the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration, have studied these Schumann waves extensively and have recognised the importance of these waves for human health. Space shuttles, leaving our atmosphere, are equipped with artificial Schumann wave generators to simulate the natural electromagnetic environment of the earth.
