Personally I believe the right track is to look for a physical cause to an astrobiolink. Philosophy, psychology, esoterism are all very fine but highly disputable in practically all area of life and research.
As I understand exotericism/esotericism, all energy-matter relations or effects are “physical-spiritual” or, in other words, there is a single spectrum of energy-matter-spirit. At a given point in human evolution, we can apprehend some, but not all, of the causes of things (or perhaps more properly, the strata of secondary causes within the field of our current perceptual and conceptual equipment). The understanding of physics (1996), or physics (1850), or physics (2120), must form a useful but limited conceptual framework with which to gain some measure of understanding of astrological phenomena.
MY point is that if there exists a link between man and the planets it should be observable, can replicated and is physical (in the sense of physics).
As I’m sure you know, some physics can get very metaphysical. But I agree that the most needed and useful field of astrological investigation must relate to that which is observable and that which can be replicated. The phenomena for our practical focus should be physical in the sense that it can be replicated. But this phenomena does not speak directly to us about the nature of its underlying causes. The implications of our observations may far transcend our ability to fit it into the (or our) current world view in science, or psychology, or philosophy, or religion. One may find an apparently very (at the moment) satisfactory cause, only to discover later that we are looking at the surface of a much deeper level phenomena.
It should also be caused by already known force such as gravity, EM and the likes. I refuse to reinvent physics to make place for astrology.
We can advance by application of known concepts to new phenomena.
We can advance by expansion of existing concepts to accord with newly observed phenomena. We can advance by the birth of new concepts which explain newly observed phenomena.
When possible, I agree that it is useful to explain the new in terms of the known. Yet, not everthing can or should be explained on the basis of any given current world view. In general, I agree that one should build on existing knowledge. Yet revolution has its time. Perhaps the scientist of the year 2250 will view our attempt to understand the causes of things as woefully inadequate due to our primitive understanding of the fundamental nature of the universe.
If a (or the) key is that solar, planetary, and human energy fields are in resonance with the human system and specifically with the endocrine system–does that throw any light on something specific such as the geometry involved in the correspondence between scientists and Saturn in cadent houses?
If we assume that my having these thoughts and writing this paragraph has an astrological correspondence, is an energy field- endocrine concept an adequate explanation. Does my love of mountains and seashores have endocrine correspondence.
Also, does this mode of explanation exclude astrological correspondences that would not involve the human endocrine system? Earthquakes? Chemical changes in nature? Historical events without human agency? “Accidents”?
What are the current concepts in physics that you see as providing explanatory support for an astrological or astrobiological science?
Astrobiophysical in lieu of astrobiological. This last word would not reflect the “physics” part of a three science into one concept. If I had a bet to make I would go with EM to start then I would play around with gravity (not gravity a la Newton but gravity a la “gravitons”.)
Conclusive evidence I do not have but a fair hypothesis as to the possible causal chain, waiting for scientific confirmation I do have. Come to think of it what you ask is a full chapter in a future book 🙂
The presence of the Van Hale Belt around the planet, the fact that the earth’s EM force field is sensitive to the activity of the sun. The fact that planets have EM force fields of their own. The real possibility that planets can “massage ” the EM force fields of the solar system in general and the earth EM force field in particular.
The presence of an EM force field around the head (found by MIT researcher 6 years ago with a machine called the Squid see article in La Recherches no 223 July), the fact that humans subjected to varying EM force fields actually get sick suggesting the stimulation of hormones. (no reference but have read stuff on the subject of magnetism and its effects on humans) and the fact that we already know that varying degree of hormones create unusual behaviors in subject(e.i., put a woman on testosterone or a man on estrogen.)
The principal at play could very well be resonance and the transfer of information from a larger EM force field to a smaller force field (on this last item I do not have conclusive evidence please refer to physicist on this one).
To summarize the possible chain of events:
- EMFF of a planets varies following some astronomical activity (solar flare or displacement of planets in relation to other planets and the earth.
- The Earth’s EMFF varies because it is linked to the planetary EMFF 3) The Human’s EMFF varies because it is linked to the planets EMFF
- The hormonal secretions of the human, controlled by the brain, varies because the EMFF of the human has its origin in the nervous system more specifically the brain.
- The hormonal variation generates behavior and inner feelings. Perfect this is not, plausible I think so. It has the merit of being the best I have heard yet and also it would have been unthinkable scientifically before 1990. More fascinating is that most if not all of the above is known to.
