Energy! What is energy? Every different philosophy/science has given energy a different definition. This debate has resulted in letting people needing clarification about what energy is. Having these confusing explanations about energy, no one can understand the nature of energy. In this section, I will explain the energy as I learned, felt, and lived it by working my way through philosophy, science, and discovery. From Tantra to Tao and from audio engineering to sailing, every chapter of my life had a unique explanation of energy. These different views of energy helped me to fully understand what energy is and how it affects everything around it.
Energy is a term that we often see in physics. We always listen to words like electric energy, magnetic energy, and other confusing terms. Looking at the most recent masters of eastern philosophies, you will find the term bioelectromagnetic energy. Bioelectromagnetic energy is the energy that flows inside us. This term is far from random. A human is a complex machine that, even today, we cannot understand completely. There is a whole universe inside every human body. Let’s dive deeper into this universe inside the human body.
How can a sperm which travels and finds an ovum becomes a complex machine with millions of operations? It happens because the human body is a group of tiny little particles interacting with each other. During human life, many particles enter the body while others leave it. So, let’s name these little particles “magnets.” Why magnets? Because they are. These little particles attract each other the same way as magnets do. Even planets attract each other. Like the universe is made of uncountable planets that attract each other, the same way, the human body is a compilation of uncountable particles that attract each other. That’s why the human body is like a little universe. And these particles are like little tiny magnets.
For that reason, we call the energy inside us bioelectroMAGNETIC because the attraction of these little magnets makes it. More on that later. But how can these particles attract each other like magnets? How do they build a magnetic field so they can attract anything in that? The reason that these little magnets can attract each other is because of the electricity that charges them. Yes, inside your body, electric energy flows. When you taste a passionate kiss and feel like electricity flows inside your body, your energy flows inside you at high speeds. It is actual electricity that flows inside you. How does this happen? We will explain it later. At the moment, keep that we call the energy inside you bioELECTROmagnetic because electrically charged magnets make it. Finally, we call this energy BIOelectromagnetic because this electromagnetic activity occurs in a living body. This one was obvious.
The exciting thing is that as these tiny magnets attract each other, they build a bigger and stronger magnet made of all these little magnets. And these new, more oversized magnets attract each other and build an even larger magnet. In this way, your organs are created, as well as your whole body. So you have to think about humans as a collection of magnets created by a group of smaller magnets. It is obvious that humans are part of the universe because they can attract other humans or animals, plants, and other particles. and build something more significant.
As you may understand, the energy inside you comes from these tiny magnets. In a few words, energy is the attraction caused by these magnets. But what is the energy, and how does it flow inside you? It would help if you first learned what exists between these magnets to answer this question. And here, things become a bit complicated.
Some scientists believe that between these magnets, nothing exists. Others believe that simply air exists. Others are sure that something exists but have yet to discover it. Some people claim that if you collect the material of the whole of humanity, you will have a material that will not be bigger than a cube of sugar. This theory may be true or may not. Maybe it’s an exaggeration, but it is based on logical proof. There are many answers to this, and they will confuse you.
Now, these explanations may be accurate if you see humans like a piece of fabric. Think about it. When you see a cloth from a distance, you believe this fabric is compact. But when you take a closer look at it, you will realize there is some space between the threads. The truth is that the air that flows between the lines covers this space. You cannot see it, but it exists. It doesn’t matter if it is air or nothing that flows between the threads. The important thing is that the lines attract each other in a way that makes the fabric look compact.
More or less, the same happens with the human body. These tiny magnets attract each other and create an illusion that the human body is compact, but it is not. Between the magnets, there is a space. Even if it is an entirely empty space or air flows in that space, it doesn’t matter to you to understand what energy is because, in this space, the energy flows. How? You will learn about it soon. These magnets inside you attract each other, and at the same time, they force the space around them to move. This random (or not) movement of the magnets creates some vibrations. (You will have the opportunity to understand the vibrations better when we talk about the sound). If you could stop the movement of the magnets and take a close photo of them, you would see some magnets scattered here and there inside your body and around them, nothing. But, because these magnets attract each other and move to space, they create these vibrations. These vibrations make your body look compact.
For example, if you hit a guitar string, you will notice that the string will enlarge. The vibrations that the string creates cause the string to look enlarged. The truth is that the string hasn’t changed its mass, but it seems larger because the vibrations make it look like this. Let me explain how this happens. When you hit a string, you force it to move up and down fast and continuously. This way, the string covers the space around it and looks more extensive. The truth is that it is not bigger. It shows bigger to you because your eyes cannot catch the string’s fast movement. Furthermore, this rapid movement causes a disruption in the environment around the string because it violently changes its magnetic field. These are the vibrations that the string causes.
More or less, the same happens with your body. The fast movement of the magnets makes your body look compact, but it is not. If these magnets remained still, your body would look more like a web.
Now about the energy. Let’s have a summary. When the magnets inside you are charged with electricity, they attract each other. While they attract, they move fast in the space around them. Then they create vibrations because they rapidly change the magnetic field around them. These changes in the magnetic field, so these vibrations, are the energy inside you.
As you notice, energy isn’t something spooky. It is real. It is just vibrations caused by the rapid movement of electrically charged magnets that attract each other. And these magnets are fundamental particles.
