Cymatics, Morphogenetic Fields, and Analog Computing
A Perspective on the Future of Computers and Biological Science from Rupert Sheldrake
In the following video Rupert Sheldrake discusses the emergent forms of wave-patterns and how this may be directly applied towards the development of liquid based computing systems. He claims that the morphogenetic fields are comprised of either acoustical or electrical vibratory patterns within the cellular membrane. Before viewing his Sheldrake’s talk, let’s take a step back and have an archetypal view to what Sheldrake will share with about water, information, and biological based computing.
Rudolf Steiner, Guenther Wachsmuth, Ernst Marti, Glen Atkinson, Lilly Kolisko, Theodore Schwenk, Lawrence Edwards, Michael Theroux and so many other “Goethian” researchers have investigated the dynamics and influences of the formative forces on the various planes of existence. Within this paradigm, the formative forces are involved in the molding of a trinity relationship between universal, elemental, and physical forces. More specifically the universal and peripheral forces of the spiritual, astral, etheric planes interact with the archetypal elements and the central, earthly physical forces. This threefold dynamic is the tapestry which weaves form into substance.
In Steiner’s model, there are 7 stages of evolution of more refined ethers and formative forces. The third pair of ether-elements is the tone/number/chemical ether providing differentiation, order and form within the element of water. Harmonies and ratios are responsible for the formation of physical matter. Just think about the recent finding in the field of cymatics of the standing wave patterns that pioneers like Jon Stuart Reid, Shawn Picarisc, and David Schiermeyer have shown us.
Through the works of Pioneers like Gerald Pollack, Esther del Rio, Marcel Vogel, Ruggero Santilli, and others, we have been shown various models for the geometric structure of the molecular lattice of biologically active water. Water, in a particular phase, is analagous in form and function to liquid-crystals. Remember Marcel Vogel taught that his radionic tuned crystals were “thought computers” capable of storing the geometric structure of thought-forms. Vogel also demonstrated that through some shape-power like sympathetic resonance, that water and a properly cut, tuned, and programmed crystal can imprint its information into water, resulting in structural changes to the water.
It has been my perception for some time that biology is the most advanced technology available as it offers a direct interface with the formative forces of the universe. Nature has provided all we need and our technology can only hope to imitate its majesty and complexity. The most advanced computers we design will be biological in some capacity, hopefully. The alternative in the mineral world that we are seeing may possibly act as a shape based antenna for the Arhimanic evolutionary intelligence. That’s a whole another article in the writing.
Think of the human brain for example. It is a highly complex computational and communication system which is basically a fractal scaffolding of proteins and fats within water. By atomic count, we are comprised of over 95 percent water. Whatever water really is, it acts as a malleable computer transforming the extracellular signals into the organization of cell.
We are searching for the human aura – the biofield – the morphogenetic field and its dynamics. Diving into the science of cymatics, crystallography, and water structure science will serve as major gateways to this new understanding of how information of “morphogenetic fields” are capable of guiding physical processes and formations.
In this lecture you will be taken through some cymatic imaging through the Cymascope. Sheldrake discusses how these radially symmetric vibratory patterns exists as chaotic patterns drawn between two polar attractors. Many cymatic forms have analogues geometries that are mirrored in nature from tortoise shells, flower petal distribution, radiolara, pollen, and more. He then shifts the discussion into describing a few liquid based computers using principles of hydrodynamics to out compete digital computation of biological modelling such as the seedpods of pigeon-peas. The same type of computational systems were even used by many governments to model economic processes. Sheldrake even alludes that quantum computing is rehashed liquid computing.
“The dominance of digital computing has obscured the value of analogue model systems, and water provides an excellent medium for making such models. The vertical vibration of samples of water in containers with vertical walls sets up standing wave patterns called Faraday waves which show how vibrations can be the basis of morphogenesis, with many implications in biology. The results of a series of experiments on Faraday waves will be presented and some of their implications discussed. Hydrodynamical models can also illuminate complex systems like economies; before the advent of digital computing, governments and financial institutions used such models with considerable success. Hydrodynamical models can also be used to model physiological processes and I will discuss an example of a hydrodynamical model in plant physiology. The potential for water-based analogue models may be enormous” – Rupert Sheldrake
