There have been many depictions of the human energy field and subtle bodies in the metaphysical and religious literature. The interesting observation in these depictions is the many signature features that can be associated with plasma. This suggests that the human energy field and the subtle body can be modeled as a bioplasma body. A brief excursion of the images in the literature and their similarity with structures often seen in plasma will be carried out below.
It is well-known in general metaphysics that the (relatively) dense bioplasma body sits inside an ovoid which is enclosed by a sheath. This ovoid is similar to the magnetosphere around the Earth as it protects the dense bioplasma body (inside the ovoid) from unwanted radiation, just as the Earth’s magnetosphere protects the physical-dense Earth from harmful solar radiation. The ovoid usually contains a dense body (relative to the rest of the ovoid) along the longer axis of the ovoid with low density (weakly ionized) magnetic plasma filling the rest of the ovoid. The field lines of the primary dipolar magnetic field generated by the central vertical currents (see #10 below) within the bioplasma body is largely embedded within the ovoid.
2. Concentric Shells
Plasma crystals, generated in the laboratory, are in the form of collections of particles which are held in a crystal-like array by a plasma of weakly ionized gas. When the assembly of microscopic particles was contained between two electrodes and illuminated by a laser beam, it could be seen, even with the naked eye, that the particles naturally arranged themselves regularly into as many as 18 planes parallel to the electrodes. In a subsequent experiment, the particles in the plasma crystal arranged themselves into neat concentric shells, to a total ball diameter of several millimeters. These orderly Coulomb balls, consisting of aligned, concentric shells of dust particles, survived for long periods. This onion-like layered structure, comprising of concentric shells, is also often seen in depictions of the human energy field or subtle bodies in the metaphysical literature.
3. Double Helix (Birkeland) Currents
The helical shape of the magnetic field around the gas cloud in the constellation Orion is believed to be caused by matter in the interstellar cloud moving in a straight line along the length of the filament. When this happens, it causes the magnetic field around the cloud to spiral around in a corkscrew pattern. Researchers were able to detect this spiral shape using the Green Bank Telescope, a radio observatory in Virginia. When helical magnetic fields form in plasma, charged particles move along the field lines generating helical currents.
Kundalini is a Sanskrit term is derived from the term kundala, which means a “ring” or “coil”. Kundalini currents have often been depicted in the metaphysical literature as a serpent coiled around the back part of the root chakra in three and a half turns (comparable to a solenoid or a compressed helical current) around the sacrum. The energy is supposed to originate from an apparent reservoir of subtle bio-energy at the base of the spine. The central vertical currents in the subtle body (described as Ida, Pingala and Sushumna in the yoga literature) are often depicted in the metaphysical (particularly the yoga) literature as a pair of mutually entangled helical currents with straight currents passing through them.
Mutually entangled (double spirals) currents are frequently seen in space and laboratory plasmas. Helical structures can also be found in dusty (or complex) plasma. This shows that there is a strong connection between plasma dynamics and the formation of the central kundalini and pranic currents in the (supersymmetric) bioplasma body as described by plasma metaphysics.
4. Hot Spots or Plasmoids
Plasmas can take up a variety of shapes and have “hot spots” which are visible. It has been observed that these hot spots in plasma emanate along axes. Secondly, these hotspots have different colors and temperatures than the rest of the mass. These observations agree with the bright blobs of light of different colors often found depicted in subtle body and human energy field literature along the spinal axis of the human body.
The hot spots are believed to be sources of intense X-ray emission as well as pulsed electron and ion beams. Hot spots require intense heating rates more commonly associated with focused laser beams. Pulsed beams have also been depicted in the metaphysical literature (see #6 below). Presumably these are generated by the hot spots, exit out of the vortexes (see #9 below), and undergo “lensing effects” while being ejected from the ovoid and being refracted by the clear material in the ovoid which could produce convergent and collimated beams.
5. Coronas, Spicules and Granulations
Coronal auras and discharges, granulation and spicules are all features associated with the Sun and our subtle energy bodies – the latter, as seen by clairvoyants. Coronal discharges and flares can occur suddenly on the Sun. The various particles that are discharged, together with these flares, are carried by the Sun’s plasma wind to cause magnetic storms on Earth. Spicules are short-lived phenomena, corresponding to rising jets of gas that move upward and last only a few minutes on the Sun. Spicules can also be seen in the coronas of bioplasma bodies. In addition, striations (which can also be associated with plasma and are seen on gas giants like Jupiter) are also seen. Coronas and spicules can also be seen in Kirlian representations of the aura. (In laboratory tests, it has been found that Kirlian representations of the aura correlate with the colors and shapes that human “seers” see.)
6. Beams and Jets
Using sophisticated scientific equipment, scientists at Jiao Tong University in Shanghai have shown that “subtle energy” has the properties of an electromagnetic current when flowing through acupuncture meridians but takes on the properties of coherent particle streams, similar to laser light, when projected out from the body through the hands of master Qigong healers who cure diseases by beaming their energy into the patient’s body.
There are important vortexes on the palms of the hands (of the subtle body within the ovoid). Jets or directed beams of light have been seen in photographs taken during events where subtle energetic practices take place (for example: Reiki, Qigong and Christian “Praise and Worship”). There are also Hindu, Taoist, Buddhist and Christian images showing jets of light issuing-out from the palms of saints or deities. One of the seers of the Fatima apparitions of “Mary” in 1919, “Lucia”, revealed that during one of the apparitions, “Mary” opened her hands and “rays of light” issued from them.
7. Filamentary Currents
Plasma naturally forms filaments in response to electric fields within the subtle body (which according to plasma metaphysics is composed of a complex plasma of negatively-charged, positively-charged and neutral particles). Charged particles are guided within these filaments by magnetic fields and accelerated by electric fields – generating currents. It is a well accepted fact in metaphysics that there are filaments within our subtle body, which have been referred to as “meridians”, “nadis” and “channels” – in the Chinese, Indian and Tibetan literature, respectively. In Taoist and Qigong literature, they are also referred to as “circuits” and “orbits”. For example, Qigong practitioners may speak of microcosmic and macrocosmic orbits. The microcosmic orbit is really the main meridian through which particles are accelerated in the relevant practices to bring energy to the rest of the subtle body. According to plasma metaphysics, these meridians are “Birkeland currents”, i.e. currents in which charged particles flow through and are guided by magnetic field lines.
8. Plasma Focus Device
The plasma focus device produces, by electromagnetic acceleration and compression, a short-lived magnetically-confined, hot spot or plasmoid that is so hot and dense that it becomes a multi-radiation source. These plasmoids emit intense beams of accelerated ions and electrons (see #4 above). The plasma focus device is similar to the plasma gun which is a magnetically driven shock tube that ejects plasma in the form of a plasmoid, without pinching it.
The similarities in the image when we look down at the barrel of a dense plasma focus device and the image of the throat chakra as depicted by Leadbeater are obvious. Plasma focus devices are therefore already embedded in bioplasma bodies, with the vortexes in the bioplasma body acting as delivery systems of intense collimated beams of energetic particles that are seen in many religious depictions of deities (see 6 above).
9. Plasma Vortex
Charged particles in an ionized environment have a tendency to follow magnetic field lines. If the path of the particle is at an angle, i.e. neither parallel nor perpendicular to the magnetic field lines, the particle will spiral around the magnetic field lines using a helical path. When the particles plunge they collide with other particles in the ovoid, generating a light phenomenon similar to the auroras in the atmosphere at Earth’s magnetic poles. This process will generate a helical path that will have a cone shape when viewed from the side, with the apex of the cone meeting the surface of the bioplasma body. Dynamically, this can be described as a vortex. Since there are many particles streaming down into the bioplasma body, taking slightly different trajectories, smaller vortexes can also appear within a larger vortex.
Experimental metaphysicist Barbara Brennan has observed, as many other metaphysicists, vortexes within the human energy field or bioplasma body. Within each vortex, residing on the surface of the relatively dense body within the ovoid, there are also small rotating vortexes spinning at very high rates.
It has been observed and recorded in the metaphysical and religious literature that within the bioplasma body are both helical and straight currents (see #3 above) aligned with the longer axis of the bioplasma body. These are the “central currents”. In addition, there also numerous filamentary currents interpenetrating the bioplasma body (see #7 above).
A complex network of currents enveloping the bioplasma body has been observed by Barbara Brennan who notes, “The main vertical power current induces other currents at right angles to it to form golden streamers that extend directly from the body. These in turn induce other currents that circle around the field, so that the entire auric field and all the levels below it are surrounded and held within a basket-like network.” Moving charges generate magnetic fields which have been depicted often in the metaphysical literature. There are localized fields embedded within global fields.
