Abstract: We propose that the acupuncture system and the DC body field detected by Western scientists both inhere in the continuum of liquid crystalline collagen fibres that make up the bulk of the connective tissues. Bound water layers on the collagen fibres provide proton conduction pathways for rapid intercommunication throughout the body, enabling the organism to function as a coherent whole. This liquid crystalline continuum mediates hyperreactivity to allergens and the body's responsiveness to different forms of subtle energy medicine. It constitutes a "body consciousness" working in tandem with the "brain consciousness" of the nervous system. We review supporting evidence from biochemistry, cell biology, biophysics and neurophysiology, and suggest experiments to test our hypothesis.

Neuro-Motor Reflexes

The primary reflexes should be in place in the human body from conception. The reflexes emerge at different periods of the brain development. As they are integrated they give rise to more mature neurological functions. When these reflexes are not integrated, they yield inefficiencies in motor control, eye-hand coordination, sensory perception, emotional behaviour, attention, and/or higher cognitive abilities.

This SRT practice helps to explain some of the phenomena we address in our programs.

http://www.myshrink.ca/more-info-on-srt

Self-Regulation Therapy (SRT) is a body based treatment that exploits the innate ability of sub-cortical brain structures to regulate arousal (Josephs & Zettl, 2001)*. Useful in the treatment of post trauma symptoms such as anxiety, panic, rage, hypervigilance, and dissociation, it is best described for its effectiveness in working with autonomic nervous system dysregulation.

Both cognitive and affect regulation are essential components of SRT. However, it is the addition of the somatosensory elements whereby SRT provides relief from the somatic symptoms of dysregulation. Its formulation builds from a growing body of evidence that directly links neurobiology to psychological processes.

From "Biophotons, The Human Body Emits, Communicates with, and is Made from Light"

See the full article and figures.

"Apparently biophotons are used by the cells of many living organisms to communicate, which facilitates energy/information transfer that is several orders of magnitude faster than chemical diffusion. According to a 2010 study, "Cell to cell communication by biophotons have been demonstrated in plants, bacteria, animal neutriophil granulocytes and kidney cells."[9] Researchers were able to demonstrate that "...different spectral light stimulation (infrared, red, yellow, blue, green and white) at one end of the spinal sensory or motor nerve roots resulted in a significant increase in the biophotonic activity at the other end." Researchers interpreted their finding to suggest that "...light stimulation can generate b

iophotons that conduct along the neural fibers, probably as neural communication signals."

Photonic Communications and Information Encoding in Biological Systems

S.N. Mayburov

(Submitted on 18 May 2012)

The structure of optical radiation emitted by the samples of loach fish eggs is studied. It was found earlier that such radiation perform the communications between distant samples, which result in the synchronization of their development. The photon radiation in form of short quasi-periodic bursts was observed for fish and frog eggs, hence the communication mechanism can be similar to the exchange of binary encoded data in the computer nets via the noisy channels. The data analysis of fish egg radiation demonstrates that in this case the information encoding is similar to the digit to time analogue algorithm.

...

Experimental results show that under the different stress conditions the photon rates from bio-system can rise in short time significantly, probably, as the consequence of intensive internal signaling.

Summary of Systems Thinking Rules: D,S,R, & P

 

DISTINCTIONS

               Individuals make distinctions when they identify any thing or idea, which creates a boundary that separates that thing from what it is not. The distinction rule is comprised of two interdependent elements, the identity and the other. “Identity” is the thing or idea that is being focused upon, while the “other” is whatever is not being subject to focus (i.e., all else). One’s cognition is improved through the identification and elimination of redundancy and heightened awareness of the perspectives implicit in all boundary-making. Note that when distinctions are made unconsciously, individuals remain unconscious of perspectives and the potential consequences of marginalizing the other.

SYSTEMS

               This rule states that any idea/thing can be broken into parts or grouped into a whole—making use of the concept of reductionism and holism simultaneously. Systems are made up of part and whole. We become mindful that a whole can be broken into parts, which can also represent a different whole, which is made up of even smaller parts, and so on.

RELATIONSHIPS

               The relationships rule states that an idea/thing can relate to any other idea/thing. The necessary interdependent elements for this rule are action and reaction, or cause and effect. Determining causality plays a large role in problem solving and can become oversimplified when unconsciously creating relationships. By being aware of the relationships we form, we emphasize webs of causality which reflect the complexity of the real world. Once an action and a reaction have been identified, their relationship must be defined. Many relationships are influential yet somewhat obscured within a system, making the relationships rule critical to systems thinking and DSRP problem solving.

PERSPECTIVES

               Any idea or thing can be the point or the view of a perspective—this is the perspectives rule and it consists of two elements: point and view. A point is the idea/thing that is looking or focusing, while a view is the idea/thing that is being looked at or focused upon. In order to apply the perspectives rule in earnest, we must first acknowledge the fact that the reality we perceive is really just one way of framing information (i.e., a mental model). In fact, perspectives are embedded in every distinction, system, and relationship we identify. When it comes to problem solving, being able to identify perspectives and then consider alternative ones is a tremendous advantage for understanding and solving complex problems. When we change the way we look at issues, the issues we look at change.

Conceptualizing and Measuring Mental Fitness a Dissertation:

"The preliminary findings suggest that the concept and model of mental fitness can provide a new and positive approach to the language and measurement of positive mental health aligned to the physical fitness analogy. This can create a broader understanding that, as in physical fitness, mental fitness requires the practice of intentional activities to create positive habits of mind that lead to higher levels of well- being , optimal functioning and quality of life outcomes."

Multiple Intelligences

Multiple intelligences theory, on the other hand, pluralizes the traditional concept. An intelligence is a computational capacity—a capacity to process a certain kind of information—that is founded on human biology and human psychology. Humans have certain kinds of intelligences, whereas rats, birds, and computers foreground other kinds of computational capacities. An intelligence entails the ability to solve problems or fashion products that are of consequence in a particular cultural setting or community. The problem-solving skill allows one to approach a situation in which a goal is to be obtained and to locate the appropriate route to that goal. The creation of a cultural product allows one to capture and transmit knowledge or to express one's conclusions, beliefs, or feelings. The problems to be solved range from creating an end for a story to anticipating a mating move in chess to repairing a quilt. Products range from scientific theories to musical compositions to successful political campaigns.

Can Neurofeedback Help with Autism Spectrum Disorder?

"Neurofeedback is an effective, drug-free, painless procedure in which the child [adult] learns to re-train the attention mechanisms of their brain, alleviating the condition," states Dr. Stephen Ferrari in a 2012 article/ study.

Neurofeedback training has been used by hundreds of clinicians to help thousands of children on the autistic spectrum from Asperger’s to full-blown autism. Several research studies have also been published to support these efforts.
