This illustration shows how everyone’s energy circulation is in an artificial electromagnetic flow.

Kundalini is a Sanskrit word meaning either “coiled up” or “coiling like a snake.” There are a number of other translations of the term usually emphasizing a more serpent nature to the word - e.g. ‘serpent power’.

The caduceus symbol of coiling snakes is thought to be an ancient symbolic representation of Kundalini physiology. Hermes’ staff of life, called the “Caduceus” is an external representation of the internal energy pathways and their intersections at certain centers called “chakras”. Chakra means “wheels of energy”. These energy centers are symbolized on the caduceus by the crisscrossing of the serpents along Hermes’ staff. The Caduceus is a Hermetic symbol that can now be seen in most medical facilities and physician offices. It has become the symbol of the medical profession, which interestingly enough is a profession with an emphasis on healing or making one whole. It is also interesting that not many physicians are aware of the ancient Hermetic practice from whence this symbol has its’ origin.

Looking closely at the Caduceus, we see two intertwining serpents crisscrossing each other at certain points called the “chakras”. The serpents themselves represent the two major energy channels along the spine called the “ida” and “pingala”. When the ida and pingala energy flow is balanced, then the internal energy flows through the central channel called the “sushumna”. When the energy flow is balanced, the sushumna channel becomes active and there is a sense of tranquility and peace. It is through the sushmuna channel that one practices the mantra meditations to experience higher levels of consciousness.

Harmony of the Spheres by Michæl Paukner

Approximation of the intervals of the semi-minor axes of the planets in our solar system.

As the idea of the “harmony of the spheres” has been anchored in mankind for thousands of years, a coherence between geometry and the celestial relations has also been suspected for an equally long time. Plato associated the five regular solids named after him with the elements of fire, water, earth, air and a celestial-ethereal substance. He attributed the latter to the dodecahedron, a figure, that is enclosed by twelve pentagons. In geometrical regard it was again Johannes Kepler who 2000 years later developed the ancient ideas further. He started out on his search for order in the solar system by creating his well-known model which shows that the arrangement of the six planets, known in his time, is organized by the five Platonic solids. According to this the ratio of the radii of the inner and the outer sphere of the dodecahedron, for example, corresponds (if only very approximately) with that of the mean distances which Mars and Earth have from the Sun, or the semi-major axes of the elliptical orbits, repectively.

However, the structure of the whole system is determined by the semi-minor axes b, which already had a central importance in the harmonies of the velocities. What is most striking, is that the first and the fourth planet, counted from the inside as well as from the outside, are in a ratio of 4/1, relative to their semi-minor axes. The first and sixth planet, again calculated from the inside and the outside, show the proportion 25/1. The result is a clear higher structure, that is partitioned further by ratios of small integers. This order is illustrated in the image by circles. The differences from the real values amount to only a few thousandths, except for the intervals 8/3 and 3/2, where they are slightly more than one per cent.
