I am going to
give you the latest instalment of my life story: the quantum coherent organism.
Quantum coherence is the pre-requisite for consciousness. It is the
pre-conscious ground that Deepak Chopra mentioned in his opening speech, without
which all the amazing things described yesterday evening – precognition,
telepathy, remote viewing, entanglement, and so on - would not be possible. It the
‘I’ in everyone, even though we are composed of tens of trillions of cells and
hundreds of trillions of bacteria, and astronomical numbers of the most diverse
kinds of molecules. The quantum coherent organism is a macroscopic quantum
being with an ever-evolving wave function spread throughout the entire
universe, entangling the wave functions of other quantum beings. Quantum
coherence of the organism has such important implications on how we are to live
our lives that I want to bring you all that contemporary science has to offer.
This latest episode is on how water is crucial to
the quantum coherence of organisms. Highly polarized multiple layers of liquid
crystalline water molecules form dynamically coherent units with the
macromolecules, enabling them to function as quantum molecular energy machines
that transform and transfer energy with close to 100 percent efficiency. This liquid
crystalline continuum of intimately associated polarised water and macromolecules
extends throughout the extracellular matrix into the interior of every single
cell, enabling each cell, ultimately each molecule, to intercommunicate with
every other. Intercommunication is the key to the quantum jazz of life, in
place of command and control.
Quantum jazz is my metaphor for the incredibly
dynamic light and sound dance-show inside the quantum coherent organism as it
goes about its business of living. It involves the most diverse players,
coordinated from subatomic to macroscopic dimensions spanning a frequency range
of 73 octaves, each improvising freely and spontaneously from moment to moment
yet perfectly in tune and in step with the whole. Rather like the quantum jazz
dancers (Poreotics) that ended last night’s gala performance, only much, much
John Mendes Comment left 14th August 2011 20:08:49 Dear Dr. Mae-Wan Ho,
I am currently reading your book, The Rainbow and the Worm. Myself and my brother, Ramiro Mendes, are music composers and artists who are very interested in using the universal/biological element of sound in transforming human consciousness and ultimately, our world.
We are very interested in your work in that it is part of our work to understand how sound/frequencies are part of the fabric of all living and non-living elements of the universe.
We would love establish contact with you and find ways that we can ultimately use music to expand the knowledge of our generation. We are specially moved to see that you use Quantum Jazz to explain the process by which life and harmony is maintained at local and world levels.
We look forward to receive your correspondence.
