Look at how incredibly small the snippet of visible light is relative to all light rays. This is what humans are consciously capable of seeing with the help of sensory neurons and their transmittance through photodiodes in the eye. These complex pathways diverge through visual centers in the cerebellum and translate information into the cerebrum where it is displayed as a conscious experience. The process of turning this light energy into a visual canvas is an amazingly complex interpretation mechanism, but most of the light spectrum exists beyond what we are physically capable of interpreting.
So what happens beyond the sites we see?
Our analytical brains are locked into a prison of conditioning analogous to that of a computer and it’s programmed binary code. We should all stop letting cultural influence input its carefully oriented ones and zeros and start looking at things as they really are beyond their interpreted constructs. Science only has methods for measuring things that can be measured and science is ideal for objective and tangible criteria.
There is a slice of the world we can make sense of, but what about the indefinable? What about the yet to be discovered and all of the questions that we’ve only answered at face value?
In the not too distant past visionaries were punished and ridiculed for arguing that the Earth anything but flat. Our knowledge is ever-evolving and in another hundred years we will have made currently inconceivable discoveries.
If the visual light spectrum is so incredibly small then what happens to all the light that is not within those parameters? Do our eyes omit the rest or do infra-red, UV, radio and gamma waves have a subliminal effect on the things we see, the emotions we feel and the spiritual gravity that transforms us?
I have the same questions concerning sound waves and what we hear, smells that affect us only sub-consiously, magnetic fields and polarity and their effects on attraction and emotion. Interestingly enough, these sort of questions are beginning to be answered. Laser Therapy is used to treat damaged tissue using lasers that emit light beyond the visible spectrum. Significant findings of this therapy include increased mitochondrial production of ATP that allows injured organic tissue to respond with an increased time of recovery.
But western medical zealots too often yell heresy and salivate at vetoing progressive therapies that lack overwhelming scientific evidence. We are quite arrogant of our current scientific testing methods. I’m guessing that perhaps there is something beyond our dogmatic scientific rigor that could rationally explain how we are affected by the things we cannot see. There are plenty of scientists out there that are trying to explain the answers to seemingly ethereal questions concerning the potential of the human body but modern science is still a big leap away from arriving at exclusive conclusions containing the depth of that potential.
The human body is intelligent beyond our imagination. At a cellular level, micro-stimuli are understood and assimilated. This is innate intelligence and is perhaps the most profound method of comprehension in existence. Some call this universal intelligence and some describe this very notion as God.
Think of sound, music and your physical body. Sound works directly on the nervous system, diffusing energy through your body thus creating specific effects commensurate to the sound’s frequency and intensity. Think of a violin. The wind passing through the trees is music, the water descending from the mountains is music, the birds and animals are music. The whole of existence is a great orchestra.
There is no reason that we should all grow old and never take the time to enjoy the ecstasy of life and the glorious beauty of the world beyond that which our physical senses can explore. We constantly engage with a myriad of stimulants that never meet our level of consciousness. We need more spiritual power. We need to become more familiar with the things that are unseen. There is unlimited potential for us all to enjoy this life to the fullest but that is rare because we are so preoccupied that we never allow beautiful moments to erupt.
Look again at the visible light spectrum and ask yourself how much is going on in your world that you cannot see.
