An unlimited resource of electrical energy forms the basis of physical manifestation of Nature. The discovery of this fact and persistent efforts to utilize this immense power of Nature has been of great help in scientific and technological developments of our age.
The space between the earth’s strata and the Ionosphere contains positive potential of about 3 X 105 volts while the earth’s interior contains an equivalent amount of negative charge. On an average, every living organism on the earth bears a subtle electrical pressure of the order of 5 volts/m created by the lowest layer of the Ionosphere situated about 60 km above the earth’s surface. This potential generates an electric current in human body, which is a good conductor of electricity. The measurements by sophisticated instruments have shown that this current is of the magnitude of 10-16 Amp Sec/cm2. At a first glance, this small quantity of current may appear to be negligible. Nevertheless, its effects are incredible because of the existence of some subtle power centers in the human-body as described below.
The scientific exposition presented here is focused on the subtle power centers in human-body whose existence is manifested in the forms of Bioelectricity and Biomagnetism. The subtle bioelectrical energy provides the vital force for the body’s functioning and governs various mental activities. Human body simulates an ‘Ocean’ consisting of infinitely many ‘rivers’ in the form of the Blood vessels and the Nerves. Each respiratory cycle gives rise to high and low tides of currents in this ‘Ocean’ at an average rate of about 15 cycles/minute. The technique of electric power generation from the tides and cyclones in the seawater is well known today. However, very few people know that the electric ions inhaled from the surrounding atmosphere during each respiratory cycle give rise to a powerful tide and hence electrical flow within our body. The ancient Indian sages (Rishis) had a deep knowledge about this current and its utilization for higher purposes.
Our body can be likened to a grand powerhouse. The brain and the heart work respectively like the generator and the transmitter of the bioelectricity (ionic currents) in the body. The bioelectric energy is distributed amongst the body cells as per their functional requirements. This electricity, in conjunction with the (subtle) vital energy of a person, produces the (bio) magnetism which in turn manifests as the aura ( halo of light ) around one’s body and the region of attraction in one’s personality.
