Brains and Realities
Between the Moon and Earth
Most scientists today accept that 99% of the multiverse is invisible – every
current physics textbook says so! Only 1% of the multiverse is visible to us.
So the obvious question is: When you look at yourself in the mirror, are you
seeing 100% of yourself or just 1%?
Do you possess invisible bodies which you are not aware of and which
survive the death of your biomolecular body? How do we go about investigating
whether there are such bodies? Why can’t you see them? Do established
scientific theories support the existence of such invisible bodies? How do
these bodies operate and what kind of universes do they inhabit?
Recent advances in Science help us to answer these questions. If parallel
universes are taken to mean universes which share the same spacetime
as ours, then we have to include the ‘super universes’ popularised by metaphysicists.
They are called ‘super’ because they contain particles which are
much higher in mass, energy and frequency than particles in the ‘Standard
Model.’ The Standard Model, used by physicists currently to describe and
classify most of the ‘standard’ particles in our ordinarily visible universe, is
acknowledged to be incomplete by most scientists. Super particles, however,
are ordinarily invisible to us and our current scientific instruments – just like
dark matter and energy, which Science has had an embarrassing confrontation
with in recent years.
According to traditional metaphysics every person has a number of
higher-energy bodies composed of super particles which are ordinarily not
visible in our universe with our biological eyes. These higher-energy bodies
live in super universes. The objective of this book is to validate and extend
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
this traditional theory, which is based on observations made by a number
of experimental metaphysicists across the globe over centuries, and integrate
it into a scientific framework so that more systematic work can be
done to understand these bodies and their universes. (The term ‘metaphysics’
used here simply means it is wider in scope than ‘physics.’ For all practical
purposes, it may be considered ‘mainstream physics plus the physics
of consciousness and perception.’)
Conceptually, super universes can be imagined to extend vertically
from our universe to higher energy levels. Mirror universes, often met in
science fiction books, can be imagined to extend horizontally from any
identified universe. Mirror universes, which are approximately at the
same energy levels, are contra-factual. This means they contain opposite
attributes (such as charge, parity or time reversals). If taken together, at
the same energy levels, these contra-factual universes would ‘cancel-out’
like matter and anti-matter. Super universes, however, are a spectrum of
universes which increase in energy levels but do not cancel out when taken
together. In fact, they represent different phases in the energy spectrum
of the manifested multiverse. Even when they do possess contra-factual
attributes they do not cancel-out because super universes are at different
energy levels.
Using the latest theories from physics and recent findings in plasma
cosmology, plasma crystal and holographic technologies, supersymmetry
and theories surrounding dark matter and energy, the traditional ‘Many
Bodies-Many Universes’ theory of metaphysics is validated and vindicated
in this updated version of the theory. There is overwhelming evidence that
every human being possesses several high energy liquid-crystal bodies
composed of magnetic plasma (or ‘magma’) that are ordinarily invisible to
most of us.
This book differs from other accounts of invisible bodies, (such as
descriptions of ‘astral’ and ‘etheric’ bodies in the general metaphysical literature)
and features such as ‘chakras’ (or vortexes) and meridians (or filaments)
described in New Age books. It is grounded in mainstream physics
and treats these bodies and the universes they inhabit as phenomenon
which can be explained by extending mainstream physics. It is not only
descriptive but analytical in nature; citing, wherever relevant, both scientific
and metaphysical evidence. It goes in-depth to explain the anatomy
and physiology of our invisible (higher energy) bodies. In doing so, numerous
exciting correlations have been discovered. Using the model outlined
by the author, traditional metaphysical and paranormal theories are recast,
using an internally consistent framework based on mainstream physics.
| prologue
We begin first by taking a look at the scientific discovery that there are large
amounts of invisible matter in the universe and enquire as to its nature.
We quickly realise that this invisible matter is composed of highly massive
and energetic super particles. Then we come to a critical juncture – we
establish that these super particles are largely in the form of plasma. This
quickly opens up an internally consistent conceptual framework which we
can draw from to explain numerous metaphysical and paranormal observations
in a logical sequence – from higher energy bodies that accompany
a human being’s physical bodies (their birth, appearance, operation and
eventual dissolution); to Earth-based ‘heavens’ and ‘hells.’ All the phenomena
flow naturally out of the behavior of plasma. Here we establish a new
field that the author describes as ‘plasma metaphysics.’ No doubt, many will
come later who will develop this model in more detail. Heaven, hell and the
afterlife will then inevitably become an area for ‘enlightened’ mainstream
scientific research.

Invisible Matter in the Universe
It’s pretty amazing that after all this time; astronomers cannot
say what this dark matter is made of. It’s one of the greatest
mysteries in the history of science … Imagine living in a house
and having no clue as to what it is made of.
Tom Siegfried 1
Gravitational Fields Generated by Invisible Objects?
A group of isolated galaxies, UGC 10214, has a conspicuous bridge of material
extending into space towards apparently nothing! Stars at the edge of galaxies
were moving at much higher velocities than what the calculations allowed.
In our Solar System, movement of the planets occurs in close conformity
with Newton’s gravitational laws, according to which the rates of movement
around the Sun are slower for planets further out. When this behavior is
extrapolated to distant spiral galaxies, it is natural to assume that these, also,
would show slower rates of movement in the spiral arms further away from the
centres of the galaxies. It was therefore a surprise when measurements by the
astronomer Jan Oort in the late 1920s indicated that orbital velocities of stars
in the Milky Way do not decrease with increasing distance from our galactic
centre. In 1933 Fritz Zwicky noted the same anomaly in galaxies forming
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
galactic clusters, and suggested that it was due to unidentified ‘dark matter’
which ‘balanced out’ the masses at the centres of galaxies.
In 1970 Vera Rubin and W K Ford found the same behavior in the
neighbouring Andromeda Nebula, and later sixty other spiral galaxies! This
indicates that gravity from these galaxies extended much further out than
what was suggested by the edges of the visible galaxies. But what was generating
this gravity that was able to confine such fast-moving stars within the
galaxy and prevent them from escaping?
At the edge of our Solar System, far beyond Pluto, when we would
expect gravity from the visible Sun to peter out, two probes sent out by
NA SA in 1972 and 1973 experienced strong gravitational forces. What was
generating this gravity? According to Marcus Chown this may be due to the
presence of ‘mirror matter’ (one variety of dark or invisible matter) within
the Solar System.2 Richard Morris observes, ‘The universe contains a mysterious
kind of matter that telescopes cannot detect, but which nevertheless
makes its presence known by exerting a gravitational pull on objects that
astronomers can observe.’ 3
Astronomers have also recently calculated that the mass so far observed
in the visible universe fell far short of theoretical predictions – based on the
established ‘inflationary theory.’ Despite better and better measurements,
the results from various sources just kept showing that the observed density
of matter and energy in the visible universe was simply too low. Only 1% of
the predicted mass could be seen or measured! All this evidence made many
scientists sit up and conclude, much to their disbelief, that 99% of the matter
and energy in the universe was invisible! Equally ironic is that although
this fact was known to scientists for some decades, 99% of human beings
on this planet currently are unaware of this historical monumental finding
and have not reflected on the implications!
The Auras of Galaxies
Science observes that galaxies are surrounded by massive halos of this mysterious,
invisible material. A curiously similar observation was made by a
Hindu saint, half a century before the above observation. He too saw halos
around galaxies – but they were anything but dark or invisible. He says:
The divine dispersion of rays poured from an Eternal Source,
blazing into galaxies, transfigured with ineffable auras.
Paramahansa Yogananda, 1946 4
The term ‘aura’ is frequently used in metaphysics to mean a colored
radiation emanating from an object. Spherical halos around saints, as
invisib le matt er in th e univ erse | Chapter 1
depicted in certain paintings, are considered auras around the head region.
What were invisible halos to scientists appeared as a colorful aura around
the galaxies to this saint, as he observed them half a century ago. Was he
seeing what our scientific instruments could not see – the dark matter counterparts
of these galaxies?
This invisible matter was dubbed ‘dark matter’ by scientists, not
because it is dark in color (or because there was something sinister or evil
about it) but because it does not radiate any light within the electromagnetic
spectrum known to Science. It could just as well be called ‘invisible matter.’
Astronomers are still not sure what this dark matter is composed of.
They have labored on several theories but none of this matter and energy
predicted by these theories have actually been observed or measured by
current scientific instruments. There is almost a universal consensus now,
however, that massive amounts of dark matter pervade the universe. Powerful
scientific theories imply that the greater part of this matter is composed
of ‘exotic’ particles not yet seen in the laboratory or even objects that can
be described as ‘particles.’ Scientists today estimate that dark matter and
energy comprise 90% of the Milky Way (‘our’ galaxy) and up to 99% of the
universe as a whole (though estimates can vary between these percentages).
Bruce Margon, chairman of the astronomy department at the University of
Washington, told the New York Times, ‘It’s a fairly embarrassing situation
to admit that we can’t find 90 percent of the universe!’
According to Donald Goldsmith, dark matter remains invisible over
the entire electromagnetic spectrum known currently to Science, from the
longest wave-length radio waves to the shortest wave-length gamma rays.
Though astronomers have opened one spectral window after another with
new satellite observatories sent above the absorbing effects of our atmosphere,
most of the dark matter consists of matter that cannot be directly
Dark matter, according to mainstream Science, is outside the known
electromagnetic spectrum. This observation has been made and communicated
numerous times by metaphysicists – when describing what they
call ‘subtle matter and energy.’ Some scientists now say it is ‘non-luminous’
– which simply means the same thing (i.e. it does not emit electromagnetic
waves within the spectrum know to Science currently). Nevertheless,
it seems that what appears as non-luminous to Science has been described
as a ‘luminous ocean’ by various mystics and metaphysicists – long before
Science stumbled onto dark matter.
Could part of the problem in identifying dark matter be that
only part of the spectrum of matter is observable by our senses
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
and sensors? As there are sound waves above and below the
frequencies we can hear, and light waves we can’t see with
our eyes, could it be that matter has properties that make it
invisible to us at certain ‘frequencies?’ This may explain some
of the anomalies in the layering of dark matter.

Further Evidence from Gravitational Lensing
A deep optical image, from the telescope at Kitt Peak, showed the cluster
of galaxies – A bell 2218, along with many faint blue galaxies in the distant
background which had been distorted into arcs in the images constructed.
According to astronomers, these distortions were the result of ‘gravitational
lensing’ caused by a high density of dark matter near the centre of the cluster.
Gravity bends light in a similar way that a lens does – in a phenomenon
that astronomers call ‘gravitational lensing.’ In this case, while gravitational
lensing was evident, the matter which caused this lensing could not be
found! The astronomers were forced to conclude that invisible galaxies were
causing the lensing phenomenon. A team of European astronomers noticed
similar distortions in light from distant bright galaxies they were imaging.
But there was no visible object that could account for the distortions. ‘It
was a true mass detection but difficult to confirm,’ said Peter Schneider of
the University of Bonn, a member of the team. In other words, mass was
detected but there was nothing there that they could see or image.
The evidence, as a whole, appears to support the existence of invisible matter
and energy. The majority of physicists are now inclined to take the
view that there are vast amounts of matter that we cannot see or measure
(with any scientific instrument that we currently have). Nevertheless, they
knew it was there because of the effects on what they could see – unusually
fast moving stars, distortions in the light from distant galaxies and matter
being drawn towards apparently nothing. Invisible matter seemed to
surround billions of galaxies in the universe. There were even stars that
appeared to be rotating around invisible companions. David Peat explains
that while the dark matter star remains invisible, its attraction will affect
the orbit of the ordinarily visible star. The two will form a binary system
in which a star in our universe is rotating around an invisible companion.6
Stephen Hawking says:
invisib le matt er in th e univ erse | Chapter 1
Our galaxy and other galaxies must contain a large amount of
‘dark matter’ that we cannot see directly, but which we know
must be there because of the influence of its gravitational
attraction on the orbits of stars in the galaxies. Moreover, most
galaxies are found in clusters, and we can similarly infer the
presence of yet more dark matter in between the galaxies in
these clusters by its effect on the motion of galaxies.7
In 1932 Albert Einstein and William de Sitter published a joint paper
in which they proposed the Einstein-de Sitter model of the universe. They
argued in this paper that there might be large amounts of matter which
does not emit light and has not been detected. In 1917 de Sitter also predicted
‘redshifts’ and was the first to develop a formal cosmological model
of an expanding universe – both are now scientific facts. He also predicted
that the expansion would last forever. Recent astrophysical evidence confirms
In 2000 Robert Minchin and his team at Cardiff University in Wales
noticed two apparently isolated hydrogen clouds in a radio telescope survey
of the Virgo Cluster of galaxies. Follow-up observations with visiblelight
telescopes showed that one of these clouds was associated with a
faintly glowing galaxy. However, the second cloud had no partner galaxy.
According to Minchin, its motion suggests that it’s a small part of a massive
object weighing as much as a galaxy of 100 billion suns. And yet this object
remains invisible. If Minchin and his team are right, they would have found
the first member of a population of galaxies that theorists have proposed
but observers had never seen.
Hot and Cold Dark Matter
Scientists tell us that there are two types of dark matter – hot dark matter
and cold dark matter. Hot dark matter, with its high kinetic energy, escapes
the gravitational pull easily – making it difficult to form structures – like trying
to build a sand castle while the tide is coming in. Cold dark matter,
on the other hand, has less kinetic energy – enabling it to clump and form
structures more readily. This provides the structure in the universe.
‘Qi,’ ‘Prana and ‘Kundalini’
‘Qi’ is a general term for ‘energy’ in Mandarin. ‘Prana’ and ‘Kundalini’
have similar meanings in Hindu metaphysics. They represent what the
metaphysical literature calls ‘subtle energy.’ Science has been unable to
measure qi, prana or kundalini directly – just as it finds it difficult to measure
dark matter or energy. Nevertheless, in certain inconclusive scientific
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
experiments, they have been measured indirectly.
Wang Jwing-Ming, a doctor and the author of ‘The Root of Chinese Chi
Kung’ explains that Qigong practitioners have categorized qi into ‘Fire qi’
and ‘Water qi’ within the human body. The terms ‘Fire’ and ‘Water’ indicate
the effects that the qi has on our body. When ‘Fire qi’ circulates in the body
it causes heat and disrupts biological and psychological processes. On the
other hand, when ‘Water qi’ is circulating smoothly, it enables the body to
remain calm and function properly – promoting ‘qi fields’ around the body
and enhancing the orderly operations of the physical-biomolecular body.8
The similarities in attributes between ‘Fire qi’ and ‘Water qi’ and hot
and cold dark matter, respectively, are evident. If ‘dark’ matter and energy
is defined as invisible matter and energy which is beyond the measurement
of current scientific instruments; then qi, prana and kundalini would all
fit this definition and must be taken into account by Science when studying
dark matter and energy – sooner or later. This energy has not only been
observed by Eastern metaphysicists, it has also been studied in the West.
In the West the term ‘L’ energy is sometimes used. This ‘L’ energy or ‘life
energy’ has the same general meaning as qi and prana.
According to Paul Pearsall, ‘L’ energy fills all of space in the form of
bundles of vibrating energy that can manifest themselves as either particles
or waves that contain the information transmitted within, and to, all persons
and things. ‘It passes unchanged through any known substance (in
this universe) and nothing shields or deflects it.’9 The pervasiveness of ‘L’
energy and its ability to penetrate objects bears a strong resemblance to the
properties of dark matter particles hypothesised by physicists. Compare the
description of one type of particle by a scientist (below) with the L-energy
described by Paul Pearsall. The similarities are remarkable.
If there are as many WIMPs [or dark matter particles
postulated by scientists] as would be required to explain the
motions of galaxies, large numbers are whizzing through the
room you are sitting in, and through your own body, without
you noticing.
John Gribbin 10
Dark matter within the Galaxy
For decades astronomers have wondered about the origin of certain fastmoving
clouds of atomic hydrogen in the vicinity of the Milky Way. Some
clouds appeared to be plunging into the galaxy at high speeds and were
not rotating with the galaxy; while others seemed to be moving away from
invisib le matt er in th e univ erse | Chapter 1
the Milky Way. A synthesis of new radio-telescope measurements, plus
re-evaluated data from COBE and the Hubble Space Telescope, indicates
that these clouds may be raw material left over from the formation of the
‘Local Group’ of galaxies – which include the Andromeda galaxy and our
own Milky Way. Leo Blitz of the University of California and David Spergel
of Princeton University, say that these high velocity clouds will continue to
feed the Milky Way (providing fuel for future star formation) and might even
harbour dark matter – a hypothesis which would account for the continued
stability of the clouds and their unexplained large internal velocities.
D Lin, a University of California astronomer, has shown that the Large
Magellanic Cloud that orbits around our own galaxy is being torn apart by
the powerful gravitational pull of a dense cloud of dark matter surrounding
the Milky Way. This dismemberment of the Large Magellanic Cloud
cannot be explained by the gravitational forces exerted by the stars in our
galaxy that we can see. Lin calculates that our galaxy’s halo of dark matter
is equivalent to 600 to 800 billion solar masses, compared to the only 100
billion solar masses of visible matter.
Dark matter within the Solar System
There is dark matter at galactic scales, but can this type of matter be found
in our backyard – our Solar System? Recently it has been found that the
Solar System, itself, is sitting in an interstellar cloud. The existence of the
cloud and its geometry can be deduced from its effect on the spectra of
nearby stars and cosmic rays. Priscilla Frisch of the University of Chicago
calculates that our Solar System first encountered the cloud (moving at right
angles to it) between 2,000 and 8,000 years ago. This cloud and other clouds
that passed through the Solar System in the past would give ample opportunities
for dark matter to influence the development of life and consciousness
on Earth.
Dark Matter in the Sun
Charles Leadbeater, a leading metaphysicist of the twentieth century, and
Barbara Brennan, a research scientist and astrophysicist who worked for
NA SA and now a subtle energy healer, say that the charged globules or bundles
of vibrating energy (as described by Pearsall, above) are abundant and
energetic on sunny days. On cloudy days, though, they move sluggishly and
diminish in numbers.11 Brennan has also observed them being absorbed by
plant life.12 These energetic globules are considered one type of qi by the
Chinese or prana by the Indians.
If more of these globules are received on Earth during sunny days
than on cloudy days does this suggest that they emanate from our Sun?
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
According to researchers from the University of Oxford (as reported in
the ‘New Scientist’ journal), the Sun is harbouring a vast reservoir of dark
matter. Astrophysicists Ilidio Lopes and Joe Silk reasoned that passing
dark matter particles would be captured by the gravity of heavy bodies like
the Sun. Not surprisingly, the source of these globules (qi and prana – or
‘vital force’) observed by metaphysicists is also said to be the Sun. H P
Blavatsky, a leading metaphysicist of the nineteenth century, says, ‘A fundamental
dogma of occult science is that the Sun is the storehouse of Vital
Force, and that from the Sun issue those life-currents which thrill through
space, as through the organisms of every living thing on Earth – the real
Sun being hidden behind the visible Sun and generating the vital fluid
which circulates throughout our (Solar) System in a ten year cycle.’13 It is
significant that Blavatsky mentions the real Sun being hidden behind the
visible Sun. It is an obvious reference to a Sun which is ordinarily invisible
to most of us and our scientific instruments but visible to some of us – a
dark matter Sun!
More than 99% of the mass of the Solar System is concentrated in
the Sun. The Sun’s magnetic field is unimaginably strong (by terrestrial
standards) and very complicated. Its magnetosphere (also known as the
heliosphere) extends well beyond Pluto. In addition to heat and light, the
Sun constantly emits a low density plasma of charged electrons and protons
called the ‘solar wind,’ which blasts out from the Sun in all directions at very
high speeds to fill the entire Solar System and beyond. The solar wind and
the much higher energy particles ejected by solar flares can have dramatic
effects on the Earth ranging from power line surges and radio interference
to the beautiful and mesmerizing aurora borealis – or ‘Northern Lights.’
The composition of this solar wind has been largely analyzed by Science, up
to now, to consist of only ordinary matter in the form of plasma.
If there is a large dark matter reservoir in the Sun, as certain scientists
are convinced, it is a logical next step to expect dark matter particles captured
by the Sun from various sources to be also blown out of the Sun in
its solar wind – just like ordinary matter particles – causing what Blavatsky
(above) described as ‘life currents which thrill though space.’ There is much
evidence in the metaphysical literature that the solar wind also carries with
it dark matter particles, the charged energetic globules described by Leadbeater,
Brennan, Pearsall and others, in the form of a plasma wind. Blavatsky
has classified them as high energy ‘physical-etheric’ particles.
It states in the metaphysical literature (and both in Taoist and Hindu
literature) that qi emanates from the Sun. In Chinese culture (under the
study of ‘feng-shui’) it is ‘auspicious’ for the door of a Chinese home to face
the East (in the direction of the sunrise). Qigong practitioners face the Sun
InVISIBle MaTTer In THe UnIVerSe | Chapter 1
and other stars during their practice Both the Sun and stars have significant
and pervasive magnetic fields and plasma winds that blow out both ordinary
and dark matter particles from their hot interiors Standing in front of the Sun
would be like standing in front of an electric fan blowing out qi or prana Qi is
described as ‘subtle’ energy by metaphysicists because it interacts weakly with
ordinary matter
Dark Matter on Earth
Dark Matter Clouds Passing through Earth
Jürg diemand, a physicist at the University of California in Santa Cruz, US,
and colleagues say that new computations suggest that small clouds of dark
matter, which could be detected by future space missions, pass through
earth on a regular basis He says that perhaps a million billion of
them drift around the large dark matter halo that is thought to enclose
our galaxy These clouds float through earth every 10,000 years in an
encounter lasting about 50 years, according to diemand However, they
do not affect the (physical) earth to any appreciable effect Their relatively
low densities mean they could only nudge our planet out of its normal
orbit by less than a millionth of a meter per second a naSa detector
called eGreT (energetic Gamma ray experiment Telescope) turned up
about 200 gamma-ray sources during the 1990s whose origin could not
be identified, and die-mand thinks some of these may arise in small dark
matter clouds 14
dark matter is pervasive throughout the universe The inhabitants of earth
and the earth itself are being constantly bombarded by dark matter particles
as the earth and the Solar System sweeps around the Milky Way well beyond
supersonic speeds Gordon Kane says that our Sun is moving around in the
galaxy, and the earth is moving around the Sun Consequently, all of us, and
any detector we build in the lab, is moving through a cloud of the lightest
dark matter particles that are more or less at rest in the universe There might
be one or a few in every region the size of a baseball 15
…the earth orbits the Sun, which itself is moving through the
dark matter halo of our galaxy

Dark Matter Rain on Earth
Professor rubia of the Italian national agency for new Technologies,
energy and environment (enea), speaking at the 2004 Institute of Physics
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Nuclear Physics Conference in Edinburgh, UK, says that a stream of dark
matter might constantly be flowing through the Earth and these could be
measurable with underground detectors. Astrophysicist Heidi Newberg at
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and her colleagues suggest that dark matter
may be raining down on Earth from the dwarf galaxy ‘Sagittarius.’
The dwarf galaxy is being torn apart and consumed by the much larger
gravitational pull of our galaxy, the Milky Way. It’s entrails of stars and
dust which forms a tail, like a long piece of ribbon, is entangled around and
within our galaxy. This tail extends from Sagittarius’ centre and then arcs
across and below the plane of the Milky Way. The leading part of the tail
extends northward above our galaxy where it then turns and appears to be
showering shredded galaxy debris down directly on our Solar System. ‘As
the Milky Way consumes Sagittarius, it not only rips the stars from the
smaller galaxy, but also tears away some of the dark matter particles from
that galaxy. We may be able to directly observe that in the form of a dark
matter highway streaming in one direction through the Earth,’ says Newberg,
who has recently identified stars near the Sun that could be part of
this tail.
As Earth orbits around the centre of the galaxy, the planet flies through
this cloud of dark matter. As that happens, millions of weakly interacting
(and therefore difficult to detect) dark matter particles would be raining
down on Earth and passing through each of our bodies every second,
according to the scientists.16
Dark Seasons on Earth
According to the research scientists, there would be an annual modulation
or seasonal variation in the amount of dark matter particles raining
through the Earth because of the motion of the Earth relative to the Solar
System. Our galaxy is embedded in a much larger cloud of dark matter.
The Solar System passes through this massive cloud of dark matter particles
as it revolves around the galactic centre. The seasonal variation arises
because as the Solar System is moving through the cloud, the Earth is
moving around the Sun. In December, the Earth is moving against the
direction of the motion of the Solar System as the latter moves around
the galactic centre. In June, the Earth moves in the same direction as the
Solar System as the latter moves around the galactic centre. This dark matter
rain would be experienced seasonally, just like the terrestrial monsoon
rains that sweep central Asia every year. In the same way that a cyclist gets
wetter when riding into the wind in a rain, than when riding with the wind,
any dark matter detector would record more dark matter particles in and
around June than around December. The voluminous records of DA MA, a

What exactly is dark matter and energy?
Since dark matter and energy fills 99% of the universe, it would be simplistic
to assume that they would be composed of only one type of particle. There is
probably a great diversity of particles and energies included in dark matter and
energy – including exotic particles and energies which escape the imagination
of both physicists and metaphysicists at present.
There have been recent theories in physics which shed some light on the
composition of dark matter and energy. The common feature about these theories
is that they invoke ‘standard’ or ‘super’ mirror-symmetries to extend
the known particles and forces, under the ‘Standard Model’ used by physicists,
to dark matter particles. Standard mirror-symmetries are defined in this
book as symmetries which arise from the use of a ‘standard mirror’ which
reflects a particular attribute, without a change in the energy level. Super mirror-
symmetries arise from the use of a ‘super mirror’ to reflect a particular
attribute – but at a higher energy level.
Shortcomings of the Standard Model
Physicists have been using the very successful Standard Model for several decades
to classify the plethora of elementary particles discovered in the twentieth
century. Using this Standard Model, physicists were able to speculate on
SUPer MaTTer | Chapter 2
the existence of particles and subsequently discover them in particle accelerators
This was done by observing the ‘missing spaces’ in the model, just as
the ‘periodic table’ was used in an earlier century to identify and discover
elements by observing the ‘missing spaces’ where certain elements should be
located based on mathematical symmetries
The Standard Model, however, does not explain why particles should
have their masses or how they got their relevant masses The model also does
not include the graviton Since gravitational fields are pervasive throughout
the universe and the graviton is the particle mediating the gravitational force,
this is a significant shortcoming of the model The limitations of the Standard
Model got physicists started on more comprehensive models – the most popular
being the models provided by ‘Superstring theories ’
at low energies, Superstring theories were able to derive all the particles
under the Standard Model simply by observing mathematical symmetries! They
were also able to derive the graviton Superstring theories, therefore, provided
a more comprehensive and elegant model
Superstring theories also predicted a new set of particles Standard matter
particles in the Standard Model were reflected as a new set of super force
particles Conversely, standard force particles were reflected as a new set of
super matter particles Current scientific instruments, however, have not yet
detected any of these new sets of super particles at low-energies – although the
presence of large amounts of dark matter suggests their presence Why have
they not been observed in the laboratory? This is where the breakthrough
came – a change of mindset in Science – a shift in paradigms! Physicists
concluded that they cannot be seen or measured with our current scientific
instruments because they must be highly massive /energetic particles – exactly
the conclusion reached by meta-physicists decades and even centuries ago
david Peat, a renowned scientist-philosopher of the twentieth century,
who worked with leading physicists including david Bohm, says that we can
only ‘see’ elementary particles and phenomena which come within our range
If there are indeed more massive particles around, then we simply cannot see
them 1 Tom Siegfried says that a mirror universe could exist in the same space
as our universe if the ‘mirror’ is sufficiently distorted, sort of like in a carnival
funhouse He suggests that ‘mirror particles’ are a little bit heavier than ordinary
‘standard’ particles a mirror electron might be 10 or 100 times heavier
than the standard electron Mirror protons and neutrons would also be more
massive 2

Super Particles and Universes in Mainstream Physics
The new particles are more massive (or more energetic – as mass is equivalent
to energy according to Einstein’s theories) than standard particles and have
been reflected using not standard mirrors but by ‘super mirrors.’ Hence,
they are called SUPER particles by physicists. The low energy particle accelerator
experiments that scientists have been conducting in the past can only
detect low energy and less massive particles. Higher energy experiments are
required to detect these more massive (or more energetic) particles. Superstring
theories postulate that every standard particle we observe has a massive
(or more energetic) ‘shadow’ super particle.
Every fundamental matter particle should have a massive
‘shadow’ force carrier particle, and every force carrier should
have a massive ‘shadow’ matter particle.

Richard Morris says that Superstring theories predict the existence of
‘shadow matter,’ which would interact with ordinary matter through the
gravitational force. This implies that it could be neither seen nor felt.4
If someone tried to grasp a chunk of shadow matter, her
hands would pass right through it. It has been said that one
would walk through a shadow matter mountain or stand at the
bottom of a shadow matter ocean and never know it. Shadow
matter particles could interact with one another according
to physical laws similar to those of our world. It is possible
that there could be shadow matter planets, and perhaps even
shadow matter organisms.
Richard Morris, Physicist 5
According to one Superstring theory, the (E8 x E8) Superstring theory,
shadow universes interpenetrate our universe. They have their own forces
and particles – even their own intelligent entities. John Gribbin says that
since only one of the E8 components is needed to describe everything in our
universe that leaves a complete duplicate set of possibilities. The symmetry
between the two halves of the group broke at the birth of the universe, when
gravity split apart from the other forces of nature. The result would be the
development of two universes, interpenetrating one another but interacting
only through gravity – our world and a so-called ‘shadow’ universe. 6
SUPer MaTTer | Chapter 2
There would be shadow photons, shadow atoms, perhaps coexisting
in the same spacetime that we inhabit, but forever invisible
a shadow planet could pass right through the earth and
never affect us, except through its gravitational pull
John Gribbin, Physicist 7
david Peat says that each e8 group describes its own universe, particles
and forces each group is complete, being able to fully account for the known
elementary particles and forces of nature Since the forces (except mainly for
the gravitational force) are confined within each group, the elementary particles
in one group are invisible when viewed from the other group Both (e8) universes
coexist within a single spacetime that is curved by their combined mass
and energy
It is indeed theoretically possible for a shadow universe to exist
in parallel to our own While we would feel its
gravitational effects, this shadow universe would be
otherwise invisible Photons [light] from the shadow
group would have no interaction with the matter in our
david Peat, Physicist 8
Super Particles and Universes in Metaphysical Literature
The recent findings in Science echoes what metaphysicists have been saying
over the centuries Theories of super particles and interpenetrating universes
may be new to mainstream physics but there are detailed references to such
particles and universes in metaphysical literature, as the following references
will show
In the 1970s I K Taimni, a metaphysicist, discussed at length of the
existence of more massive particles and interpenetrating super universes He
pointed out decades ago (based on the metaphysical literature) that on each
plane of existence the band of wavelengths (i e the electromagnetic spectrum)
operating on the plane corresponds to the range of sizes of particles in that
plane Theoretically ‘an infinite number of systems with vastly varying sizes of
particles and wavelengths can be accommodated in the Cosmos,’ according to
him 9
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
The differences between the sizes of particles and wavelengths
can be enormous and so one system can remain within another
system without any common ground between the two, and
therefore without the inhabitants of one system knowing of
the existence of the other inhabitants.
I K Taimni, 1974, Metaphysicist 10
Taimni said in the 1970s that there were massive particles belonging
to another universe, ordinarily invisible to us – exactly what scientists are
saying now. He explained that the systems or universes will not interfere or
come in contact with each other on the ‘material plane’ and their inhabitants.
These inhabitants will not be able to cognise the phenomena or inhabitants
of the other systems as their sense-organs are organised for particular
ranges of vibrations (i.e. frequencies).
Around 1910 Leadbeater, another metaphysicist, said that a man living
in the physical world sees, hears and feels by vibrations connected with the
physical matter around him. However, he is surrounded by (super-physical)
‘astral’ and ‘mental’ worlds, which are interpenetrating his own denser
world, which he is normally unconscious of, because his senses cannot
respond to the oscillations of their matter 11; just as our physical eyes cannot
see ultra-violet light although scientific instruments can detect and
measure it.
In 1896 Annie Besant explained that just as a blind man cannot see
physical objects so it is that most human beings who are currently ‘astrallyblind’
cannot see (super-physical) astral objects at all. According to her, at
the present stage of evolution, many people could develop astral senses and
are developing them to some extent. But they must learn how to see astral
objects. Various scientific experiments show that the brain of a child or a
blind person, who undergoes surgery to restore vision, has to learn how
to see even physical objects. The vision of physical objects does not come
about immediately. According to Besant, mistakes can be expected. After
a time, and after mistakes are corrected, the vision of astral objects can
become more accurate.
She warns that the development should not be forced as the intrusion
of astral sights and sounds can be disturbing and even alarming12 – not
to mention the ridicule that astrally-sensitive people may be subject to by
their friends and family (or even the ‘scientific’ community) who cannot
see or hear the same things – just as Galileo was ridiculed and persecuted
by the Church of his time when he saw things in his telescope which the
Church could not see or believe in because they refused to use the available
apparatus – being afraid of the ‘metaphysical.’ Galileo’s metaphysics and
sup er matt er | Chapter 2
so-called devil-inspired theories are now accepted in today’s mainstream
physics and astrophysics.
Even the idea of a ‘shadow body’ based on super mirror-symmetries
was well-known in metaphysics. In 1896 Besant explained:
The [ordinarily invisible] etheric double is the exact duplicate of
the visible body – its shadow, as it were, particle for particle.
Annie Besant, 1896, Metaphysicist 13
Super (Interpenetrating) Universes
Besant, who had presumably first-hand knowledge of other universes, provided
her findings on interpenetrating universes in 1893! She described the
existence of regions in the universe, other than the physical, peopled with
intelligent beings. She explains that if these entities did not have organs of
sense like our own, if their senses responded to vibrations different from
those which affect ours, ‘they and we might walk side by side, pass each
other, meet each other, pass through each other, and yet be never the wiser
as to each other’s existence – an unconscious co-existence of intelligent
beings,’ – echoing typical descriptions of shadow universes given by scientists
today. According to her, the existence of such regions is postulated by
the ‘Esoteric Philosophy.’
She says there is a region which is peopled by intelligent and semi-intelligent
entities; it is crowded, like our world, with many types and forms of
living things, as diverse from each other as a blade of grass is different from
a tiger, a tiger from a man. This region is also inhabited by disembodied
human beings. ‘It interpenetrates our own world and is interpenetrated by
it, but, as the states of matter (particles and energy levels) of the two worlds
differ, they co-exist without the knowledge of the intelligent beings in either.’
14 No doubt, interpenetrating universes must have been discussed at
some length by various metaphysicists of that time.
Sir William Crookes posted an article in the ‘Fortnightly Review’
in 1892, stating that it is not improbable that other sentient beings have
organs of sense which do not respond to some or any of the ‘rays’ to which
our eyes are sensitive, but are able to appreciate other vibrations to which
we are blind. He added that such beings would be living in a different world
to our own.
Metaphysicists would interpret the duplicate E8 universe (predicted
by mainstream physicists) as the higher energy etheric double of our universe.
When symmetry broke at the Big Bang, our universe moved ‘down’
(relatively-speaking) to a lower-energy level. Its etheric double, composed
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
of super etheric particles, moved ‘up’ (relatively-speaking) to form an interpenetrating
physical-etheric universe.
Super Particles
Super particles have been observed by many experimental metaphysicists.
In Hindu metaphysics, we find references to not only ‘anu’ (the standard
particles) but also ‘param-anu’ (beyond the anu or super particles). Early in
the twentieth century many references to super particles have been made in
the writings of Leadbeater and Besant, and in the compilations of Arthur
Powell. Leadbeater, perhaps the person who contributed most to twentieth
century experimental metaphysics and a prolific writer, states a number of
times in various books and papers about the existence of super particles and
super interpenetrating universes.
Every particle in the physical brain has its astral counterpart,
and this in turn has its mental counterpart.
Charles Leadbeater, 1913, Metaphysicist 15
Leadbeater explains that if the whole of the physical brain is spread out
so as to be one particle thick and that the corresponding astral and mental
matter is also laid out in layers in a similar manner, the astral a little above the
physical, the mental a little above the astral; we would then have three layers
of differing particle densities, all corresponding one to the other, but not
joined in any way except here and there with ‘wires of communication.’16
References to the astral and mental counterpart particles are clear references
to super particles. It is an accepted fact in the metaphysical literature
that ‘astral’ particles are particles with much higher energies (and therefore
higher equivalent mass in accordance with Einstein’s most famous equation
e=mc2) than standard particles. The metaphysical literature also indicates
that there was awareness of the interactions and relationships between
standard and super particles, and the invisibility of super particles (from our
current frame of reference).
Leadbeater and Besant explain in their book ‘Occult Chemistry’ published
in 1919 that a physical atom cannot be directly broken up into astral
atoms. If the force within the ‘ultimate physical atom’ (or anu) is pressed
back over the threshold of the astral plane (in other words, if the energy levels
are increased beyond the physical plane), ‘the atom disappears’ they say.
The same force (or more accurately the energy) working on a higher plane
then expresses itself through astral atoms.’ It is significant that Leadbeater
and Besant reiterate that the higher energetic atoms ‘may vanish from the
plane’ 17 – making it part of invisible (dark) matter. The standard particle was
sup er matt er | Chapter 2
referred to as the ‘physical atom’ and the super particle the ‘astral atom.’
If the mass (energy or frequency) of the standard particle was increased
beyond a certain threshold, it would become invisible and ‘disappear’ i.e. it
would become what scientists would call dark matter.
As the frequency of the particle was raised, it was pushed out of the
known electromagnetic spectrum. The fact that super particles are invisible
from our everyday frame of reference was reiterated many times by various
metaphysicists. Leadbeater says that when a man picks up (let us say) a piece
of stone, he can see only the physical particles of that stone, but that in no
way affects the ‘undoubted fact’ that that stone at the same time possesses
within it particles of matter of the astral, mental and other higher planes.18
Once again, we have clear references to the super-physical astral and mental
particles which are often cited in metaphysical literature. According to
Superstring theory, the super particle is a shadow partner or counterpart of
the standard particle. Here, a metaphysicist says the same thing:
Every solid, liquid and gaseous particle of the physical body
is surrounded with an etheric envelope: hence the Etheric
Double, as its name implies, is a perfect duplicate of the dense
Annie Besant, 1896, Metaphysicist 19
‘Physical-etheric’ particles, as will be explained in later chapters, make
up the first level of super particles according to metaphysicists. Almost all
the super particles or shadow objects proposed by physicists currently can
be found within this level.
Astral matter, being much finer than physical matter,
interpenetrates it. Thus a being living in the astral world might
be occupying the same space as a being living in the physical
world; yet each would be entirely unconscious of the other, and
would in no way impede the free movement of the other. The
different realms of nature are not separated in space but exist
about us here and now. Each world has its inhabitants, whose
senses are normally capable of responding to the undulations
of their own world only.
Charles Leadbeater, 1912, Metaphysicist 20
This echoes the current descriptions given by mainstream physicists
of shadow matter and interpenetrating universes under Superstring theories.
In 1910 Leadbeater said that to examine a (physical) object a man is
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
using a physical organ (the eye) which is capable of appreciating only certain
‘rates of undulation’ radiated by certain types of matter. If he should
develop ‘astral consciousness’ he would then be employing an organ which
is capable of responding only to the vibrations radiated by another and
finer part of that object. If in developing the astral consciousness he had
lost the physical – that is, if he had left his physical body – he would be able
to see only the astral and not the physical.21 What you see would therefore
depend on which sensory system you are using – physical, astral etc.
Mainstream physics currently asserts that there is only one other level
above the standard particles representing one new set of super particles
(because these two levels explain most of the known particles and forces).
There is a large amount of anecdotal evidence in the metaphysical literature
that there are multiple levels of super particles. There is, therefore, reason
to believe that there are more levels – which have not yet been identified
by current scientific theories. These particles, in increasing frequency, are
generally called the physical-etheric, astral and causal particles in metaphysics.
The super particles identified by physicists currently only represent
the ‘physical-etheric’ level of particles.
Considering that dark matter and energy make up 99% of all matter
and energy in the universe (only 1% consisting of ordinarily visible standard
particles) it is not difficult to imagine more than one level of super particles.
On the contrary, it is difficult to imagine one level of standard particles
making up 1% of the total matter and energy in the universe, and the other
34% made up of only one level of super particles. (The other 65% is made
up of what scientists call ‘dark energy.’)
Shadow/Super Matter vs. Dark Matter
Physicists have dubbed the matter composed of super particles ‘shadow matter.’
This matter will be ordinarily invisible – just like dark matter. Shadow
matter interacts with standard ordinary matter mainly through weak gravitational
fields – also, much like dark matter. Shadow (or super) matter consists
of matter concentrations similar to that produced by hot or cold dark
Superstring theories were developed in the pursuit of ‘Grand Unified
Theories’ and ‘Theories of Everything.’ The evidence for dark matter (from
astrophysicists) came about independently of these theories. The close correlations
between shadow and dark matter were noticed only later. To some
extent, this validates Superstring theories. John Gribbin says that one reason
that the idea (of a shadow universe) has been taken seriously is that
there is astronomical and cosmological evidence that a lot of the universe
exists in the form of dark matter, detectable gravitationally but not seen.22
sup er matt er | Chapter 2
David Peat agrees. Current theories of the large scale structures of the universe,
using the results of astronomical measurements, predict that the
mass of the universe is much more than what is observed. When the mass
in all the ordinarily visible and measurable stars and intergalactic dust is
added together, it turns out to be too small. Either these theories are wrong
or some additional mass must be hidden from us. The idea of a shadow universe
is an ideal way of explaining missing mass, says David Peat.23
Dark Matter Planets within the Solar System
According to metaphysicists, besides physical planets (which have their
astral and causal counterparts); there are also astral planets (with their
causal counterparts) and purely causal planets in the Solar System. According
to Leadbeater, the whole of the astral portion of our Earth and of the
physical planets, together with the astral planets make up collectively the
astral body of the Solar System. A similar description could be made of
the causal body of the Solar System. The causal body of the Solar System
comprises not only the causal spheres belonging to each physical planet,
but also those belonging to each astral planet, and in addition purely causal
planets. While each sphere (the physical-etheric, astral and causal) interpenetrates
the other, the physical-etheric, astral and lower causal spheres
are not extensive enough to have links with the corresponding spheres of
any other planet.24 Paramahansa Yogananda says that just as many physical
suns and stars roam in space, so there are also countless astral suns and
moons.25 According to Norman Pearson, so far we have only considered
physical planets; but there are also planets composed of ‘super-physical’
matter. In fact, the super-physical planets form the greater part of the planetary
population of the Solar System, according to him.26
Unexpected gravitational forces experienced at the edge of our Solar
System by NA SA’s Pioneer 10 and 11 were attributed to the pull of dark
matter by Marcus Chown.27 According to the metaphysical literature there
are ordinarily invisible astral and causal planets within the Solar System.
This explains the ‘Pioneer anomaly.’ In a hospital in Switzerland in 1944,
the world renowned psychiatrist Carl Jung had a heart attack, then a neardeath
experience. In this experience, Jung saw the Earth from over a thousand
miles out in space. High above India, he could see the Arabian deserts
and the snow-capped Himalayas. Then he spotted a huge meteorite floating
towards him and a being on it. Jung probably saw an astral being on an
astral meteorite, while in his astral body in the astral magmasphere. J H
Brennan agrees with this analysis.28
Computer simulations of galaxy formation suggest that there should
be many more small galaxies in the universe than observations indicate.
jay alfred | OUr InVISIBle BOdIeS
Some astrophysicists have suggested that the missing galaxies elude observation
because they’re rife with dark matter yet all but devoid of ordinary starforming
matter Chung-Pei Ma, an associate professor of astronomy at UC
Berkeley, and edmund Bertschinger of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
(MIT) say that computer simulations of the evolution of dark matter
predict far more clumps of dark matter than ordinarily visible luminous matter
in a specified region If luminous matter follows dark matter, there should be
nearly equivalent numbers of each But, based on the computer simulations,
this isn’t so Ma says, ‘Our galaxy, the Milky Way, has about a dozen satellites,
but in simulations we see thousands of satellites of dark matter dark
matter in the Milky Way is a dynamic, lively environment in which thousands
of smaller satellites of dark matter clumps are swarming around a big parent
dark matter halo, constantly interacting and disturbing each other ’29 Hence,
we would expect astral and causal planets and stars to outnumber planets and
stars with an ordinarily visible physical component to them
Strong evidence for a massive galaxy, composed only of dark matter, was
discovered in 2005 in the Virgo clustter. This galaxy, called VIrGO H121,
cannot be seen by optical telescopes. Scientists estimate that dark galaxies
could outnumber visible galaxies by as much as a hundred to one.
Hence, besides physical bodies, there is a mixed bag of astral and causal
planets, moons, asteroids and meteorites in the Solar System The Sun, too,
has its dark matter astral and causal counterparts What’s more the astral and
causal universes have their own astral and causal galaxies, stars and planets –
only a small number have physical counterparts which are ordinarily visible to
us in our universe The billions of galaxies and stars that we can see in the
night sky, though staggering, represent only 1% of the local multiverse!
Mirror Matter
Many of the interactions in this (ordinarily visible) universe seem to be biased
to the left It is a known fact that the interactions of the known elementary
particles, such as the electrons, protons and neutrinos, violate parity – they
have left-handed interactions Physicists called this a violation of ‘parity ’ If we
based our understanding of the multiverse only on what happens in this ‘lefthanded’
universe then there appears to be a violation of mirror-symmetry
However, every violation of symmetry points to a mirror universe If ours is a
left-handed universe, then perhaps somewhere out there, there must also be a
right-handed universe Is there a ‘right-handed universe’ interpenetrating our
Z K Siladge and robert foot think so furthermore, they think this can
account for at least some of the dark matter observed Siladge, in his paper
‘Mirror objects in the Solar System,’ says that nobody doubts that parity
sup er matt er | Chapter 2
violated). Symmetry can be restored if we can imagine a mirror world where
for any ordinary particle there exists a ‘mirror’ particle.30
The solution to the observed asymmetries within our own universe is
therefore to postulate that there is a mirror universe which restores overall
symmetry. The left-handedness of ordinary particles can then be balanced
by the right-handedness of mirror particles. According to Foot, in his book
‘Shadowlands,’ a range of persuasive evidence exist for mirror matter – and
therefore dark or invisible matter.31
According to Foot, mirror matter should not be confused with antimatter
which has quite different properties. Anti-matter is the ‘mirrormatter’
relating to the reversal of the electric charge whereas Foots’ mirror
matter relates to the reversal of parity (i.e. ‘left-right’ reversal). Is there any
relationship between this mirror matter and super matter?
Siladge, a strong proponent of mirror matter, equates mirror matter
with shadow matter. These mirror particles are similar to super matter in
that they are ordinarily invisible and interact with ordinary matter mainly
through the gravitational field. It is, however, based on Foot’s theory, different
from super matter in that they have the same range of masses as
standard particles. In other words, Foot is using a ‘standard mirror.’ Foot’s
mirror matter particles have the same energy levels as standard particles,
except that they are ‘right-handed’ rather than ‘left-handed.’ The universe
containing these mirror particles is considered a shadow universe with its
own forces and particles.
In many cases, when Nature breaks symmetry it does not create two
equal opposite halves. Instead, there is an underlying asymmetry that
accompanies the break in symmetry which ensures that the two opposites
are kept apart. This has happened for the imperfect mirror symmetry
between matter and antimatter – allowing matter to dominate in our universe;
and the imperfect (super) mirror symmetry between force and matter
particles in Superstring theories. John Hitchcock observes that Nature
seems to be dissatisfied with too much symmetry. He points out that nearly
all the symmetries in nature are less symmetric than the cause that gives
rise to them.32 Nature, at lower energies, has a passion for imperfect symmetry.
This means that the partners of left-handed particles in our universe
are most probably reflected in a super right-handed universe. There is evidence
of this in the metaphysical literature!

Parity Reversals in Metaphysical Literature
After lifting out, I carefully examined the physical body on
the bed. I reached down to touch my physical head, and my
hands touched feet! I felt my toes. My left big toe has a thick
nail – this left toe did not! The big toe on the right foot did
have the thick nail. Everything was reversed, like a mirror
image. There is a possibility that the Second Body is a direct
reversal of the physical.
Robert Monroe 33
The reversal of parity occurs because the lowest super universe (or the
‘physical-etheric universe’ in metaphysical parlance) is a right-handed
universe. But it goes beyond current scientific expectations as it is also an
upside-down world – a case of a ‘double-parity’ reversal! Robert Monroe, in
his book ‘Journeys Out of the Body’ explains (above) that when he tried to
touch his head, he touched his foot instead (top-down reversal). When he
tried to touch his left toe, he felt his right toe (left-right reversal).
In an experiment conducted by William Tiller, this parity reversal
has also been observed. Tiller, reporting on this experiment, says that
children see the spectrum with their physical eyesight and also a bent-up
spectrum with their ‘auric eyesight.’ He concludes that from this study,
‘We can confirm the concept of a type of “mirror” relationship functioning
between the physical level and the next, more subtle (physical-etheric)
level of reality.’ Tiller also reports that Qigong practitioners appear to be
projecting a type of magnetic energy with inverse characteristics to a regular
magnetic field.34
Robert Monroe says that when someone is undergoing a dramatic
shift in consciousness, such as having an out-of-body experience, the
body’s polarity, or electromagnetic field, simply reverses itself.35 In 1939,
W E Burge of the University of Illinois found that the voltage measured
between the head and other parts of the body became more negative during
physical activity, declined in sleep and reversed to positive under general
anesthesia. Robert Becker and Charlie Howard also found that the back to
front current in the human head varied with consciousness. It was strongest
during heightened physical or mental activity, it declined during rest,
and it reversed direction in both normal sleep and under anesthesia.36 The
polarity reversals betray shifts in the locus of awareness from one body to
another. In normal waking consciousness, physical awareness is located in
the biomolecular and the lower etheric physical bodies. During deep sleep
this awareness shifts to the higher etheric double. The higher etheric body
SUPer MaTTer | Chapter 2
is not only of reversed parity; but also reversed polarity or charge
Matter dominates this universe because anti-matter particles were
pushed up to higher-energy levels This is based on the observation that
physical-etheric particles appear to possess a reversal in charge The (standard)
anti-matter particles so far observed by Science in our current universe
are probably stray low-energy particles, created ad hoc in the laboratory or
in space Physical-etheric particles are super anti-matter particles
at an even higher energy level (the causal universe, plane or sphere)
there is also a foreground-to-background reversal which was observed by
Barbara Brennan 37 These spatial reversals can make analysis of events in
higher energy universes very tricky – even ignoring time reversals which
cannot be ruled out!
Metaphysics and Mainstream Physics
The metaphysical literature over the centuries contains theories and
research on all the matter described as dark matter, shadow matter and
mirror matter in recent scientific literature! In fact, many of the recent
discoveries in Science have been anticipated and discussed by serious metaphysicists
Take for example Superstring theory It has been touted by
scientists as ‘a twenty-first century theory which fell into the twentieth
century ’ But see what this metaphysicist had to say about higher dimensional
strings in the nineteenth century!
Where else would nature choose to manifest its fourdimensional
character but at the atomic scale? atoms might
actually be thin, four-dimensional threads whose crosssections
are seen as microscopic, three-dimensional bodies
Charles Hinton, 1887 38
This is similar to how physicists portray the relationship of a string to
particles david Gross says in string theory ‘there is an extended one-dimensional
object which can appear to us in many different forms’ (or as different
particles) just as one violin string can give rise to many sounds (or notes) 39 In
other words, ‘cross-sections’ of a string will appear as particles furthermore,
under Superstring theory, the number of space dimensions increases in microscopic
leadbeater and Besant have also used the concept of strings according
to leadbeater a quivering thread of intense light, called the ‘Sutratma’ in
Hindu metaphysics, connects the ‘permanent atoms’ or the nuclei within the
various invisible high-energy bodies that a person has annie Besant says, ‘…
the permanent particles will be threaded on it like beads on a string
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
The term “Sutratma” is always used to denote the idea of a thread connecting
separate particles.’40 String analogies have also been used in ancient
Hindu metaphysical and religious literature.
From (zero-dimensional) point-particles, physicists have gone on to
formulate (1 dimensional) strings. They have now stumbled onto (2 dimensional)
membranes. Each time they add a dimension to the elementary
object, the universe gets simpler but the object gets more complex. Each
time they reduce a dimension from the elementary object, the object gets
simpler but the universe gets more complex. Very soon we will hear of some
brilliant physicist who had formulated (3 dimensional) vibrating spheres to
explain ‘everything.’
Science would do well to pay attention to the metaphysical evidence to
accelerate the world’s understanding of the nature of the local multiverse.
There are so many correlations between recent theories in mainstream
physics and metaphysics that Science would be poorer if it did not review
the tireless work of many serious metaphysicists throughout the ages to
explore new directions in Science, rather than being distracted and prejudiced
by stray charlatans and sensationalists.
Stephen Philips, a theoretical physicist, draws many convincing parallels
between Leadbeater’s work and modern physics.41 How do metaphysicists
obtain this knowledge? They literally conduct experiments using
their higher energy bodies. Science has yet to develop instruments that can
detect higher energy or more massive dark matter particles but Nature has
already endowed all of us higher energy bodies to conduct our own experiments,
millions of years ago! Experimental metaphysicists have already
used their higher energy bodies to conduct many experiments and have
also developed specialized techniques to enable them to investigate the
universe (both our current and higher energy universes).
Their research and those of many other tireless metaphysicists, who
continued their work despite constant misunderstanding, criticisms and
blind spots in the scientific community, will be discussed in this book.
Their findings go far beyond many mainstream scientific findings in terms
of their impact on the evolution of individuals and the human race as a

Magma (Magnetic Plasma) Universes
Plasma Everywhere!
Plasma, which is rare in our close environment, is the dominant state of matter
in the visible universe. The Sun and stars, as well as the diffused matter
between them and between galaxies, are all in this state; despite great differences
in density and temperature. A negligible amount of the matter in the
visible universe make up the cold celestial bodies such as the Earth and other
planets, the moons, asteroids, comets, meteoroids, and dust grains.
Space probes have found electrified matter in layers around the Earth – and
also farther out – blowing out from the Sun. In addition, the probes have discovered
weak magnetic fields in interplanetary space that were guiding the
movement of the plasma wind from the Sun. After travelling for more than 20
years and at the edge of the Solar System, Voyager 1 and 2 have reported that
they are still in a plasma environment!
Plasma makes up more than 99% of our visible universe! In other words,
molecular matter, which is so abundant on this planet and which makes up
the bodies of a myriad of life-forms including our own, is not representative
of matter even in this universe. In fact, it gives us a very misleading picture
of our visible universe. The visible universe is, in fact, a plasma universe
with bodies of plasma in a pervasive cloud of diffused plasma. Molecular
and biomolecular matter are practically non-existent – considering the visible
jay alfred | OUr InVISIBle BOdIeS
universe as a whole
If that was so, then there is also a high probability that dark matter in invisible
super universes are also in the form of plasma The metaphysical literature
suggests so
What is Plasma?
To understand what plasma is, think of a hydrogen atom, a neutral ‘particle ’
It consists of basically a positively-charged proton in the nucleus with a
neutralizing negatively-charged electron forming a cloud around the nucleus
If enough energy is supplied, the electrons and protons will be able to break
away from their atoms, overcoming their binding energies
They then separate to form a negatively-charged soup of electrons (or
‘negative ions’) and a positively-charged soup of protons (or ‘positive ions’)
which is overall neutral and exhibits collective behavior. Plasma-like behavior
can be observed even when only 1% of the atoms in a given volume lose their
electrons .So partially ionized plasmas also contain neutral atoms. .
Since there are large soups of free electrons in plasma, standard plasma
(or plasma composed of standard particles) is an excellent conductor of
electricity, far exceeding the conducting properties of metals such as copper
or gold They also respond to electrical and magnetic fields and can be an
efficient source of electromagnetic radiation Beams of electrons in plasma
radiate microwaves Plasma can become transparent or translucent as a result
of an inter-play of frequencies within the plasma Many types of plasma are
also low density since they are composed of soups of particles of like charges
which repel each other within the soup
examples of plasma in everyday objects include fluorescent lamps and neon
lights The aurora borealis (or northern lights) is another example of plasma
The Sun and stars are balls of plasma all these objects emit light The separation
of electrons and (positive) ions produce electric fields and the motion
of electrons and ions, within the plasma, generate both electric and magnetic
fields The electric fields accelerate the charged particles to high speeds, while
the magnetic fields guide and confine them Because of this strong interaction
with electromagnetism, plasmas display a complexity in structure that far exceeds
that found in solids, liquids and gases
Magnetic Fields Everywhere!
Philipp Kronberg of the University of Toronto finds magnetic fields every
place he has looked in the Cosmos: within the Milky Way, in intergalactic
areas within galaxy clusters and even outside clusters angela Olinto of
MaGMa (MaGneTIC PlaSMa) UnIVerSeS | Chapter 3
the University of Chicago believes that magnetic fields existed at or shortly after
the Big Bang and influenced subsequent galaxy formation and even the distribution
of matter now seen imprinted in the cosmic microwave background
On earth, magnetic field strengths can be found from about 0 5 gauss
The larger planets have magnetic fields reaching many gauss, while the magnetic
fields of stars are much higher – at 30-40 kilo gauss large scale magnetic
fields have also been discovered in distant cosmic objects The centre of
our galaxy has milligauss magnetic field strengths stretching out across vast
distances Scientists tell us that no rotating object in the universe is devoid of
a magnetic field
Magnetic Fields Guide and Give Form to the Universe
Magnetic fields are the architects of the universe They guide charged particle
movements which sweep up both charged and neutral matter with them to
shape matter into different forms
jay alfred | OUr InVISIBle BOdIeS
Scientists studying patterns in plasma from the laboratory and in interplanetary
space infer that there is a hierarchy of magnetic fields in the universe
with an associated hierarchy of electric currents Magnetic fields and
electric currents ‘feed’ on each other and breed new fields and currents
Magnetism is the fundamental force that determines the character,
motion and shape of ionised matter (or plasma) It therefore determines the
large scale structure of our universe and super universes The degree of
ionisation in interplanetary space and in other cosmic plasma may vary over a
wide range, from fully ionised to degrees of ionisation of only a fraction of a
percent even weakly ionised plasma reacts strongly to electromagnetic fields
since the strength of the electromagnetic force exceeds many times the gravitational
force electromagnetic fields play an important role in the dynamics of
plasma, and the dynamics of plasma often give rise to electromagnetic fields
in supercomputers, relating to interactions of intergalactic-current filaments,
provide further evidence to scientists that magnetic fields shape galaxies and
the large-scale structure of the universe
In diffused, weakly ionised matter, which forms a major part of the universe,
the motion of each individual charged particle is strongly controlled by
the magnetic field for example, a hydrogen ion in the solar wind may experience
a magnetic force more than 100 times stronger than the gravitational
force from the Sun Within the framework set by the larger magnetic field,
the charged particles of plasma engage in their own complex electromagnetic
interactions, generating a web of filamentary currents
Magnetic Plasma (Magma)
Klaus dolag says that from the earth’s ionosphere, out to the most distant
intergalactic regions, all cosmic plasma are penetrated by magnetic fields that
influence their physical properties in various, often dramatic, ways Once
plasma contains magnetic fields, they move with the plasma as if the magnetic
are compressed with the plasma, and their strength increases as the plasma
becomes more and more dense 1 any rotation of the plasma would twist the
embedded magnetic field
Magnetic fields within plasma allow the formation of unique structures
within plasma and regulate the flow of charged particles These types of
plasma are called ‘magnetic plasma’ or ‘magma’ for short, in this book
Birkeland Currents
In a paper on ‘The evidence for electrical Currents in Cosmic Plasma’;
anthony Peratt, from the los alamos laboratory, states that
MaGMa (MaGneTIC PlaSMa) UnIVerSeS | Chapter 3
there is a tendency for charged particles to follow magnetic lines of force
This forms the basis of transmission lines in space for plasma immersed in
strong magnetic fields, electric currents tend to flow along the magnetic field
lines, which act like wires guiding the current These currents are known
as ‘Birkeland currents’ in plasma cosmology One of the most compelling
pieces of evidence for the existence of Birkeland currents came from the
discovery of faint super cluster-scale radio emissions at 326 MHz between
the Coma cluster of galaxies and the abell 1367 cluster 2
In magnetic plasma or magma, electric fields aligned along the magnetic
field direction freely accelerate charged particles electrons and ions
are accelerated in opposite directions, giving rise to a current along the magnetic
field lines On some clear nights, in the arctic and antarctic regions,
the sky is filled with undulating sheets of luminescent colors that move
and dance called ‘auroras ’ It is the visible manifestation of huge, invisible
electric currents plunging into the earth’s atmosphere – guided by magnetic
lines of force The aurora is a natural magnetic plasma light show comprising
standard particles
Unique Structures in Magma
While all matter is subject to gravitational forces, the positive ions, and the
negative electrons react strongly to electromagnetic forces Because of this
strong interaction with electromagnetism, plasma displays a complexity in
structure that far exceeds that found in gases, liquids and solids
Cells and Sheaths
One of the unique characteristics of space plasma, revealed by satellites and
space probes, is its tendency to form sharp boundaries between plasma with
different properties Plasma with different properties have a tendency to
separate and form ‘cells,’ with electrified ‘sheaths’ around them This allows
the generation of electric fields in space (for example, when plasma of different
polarities separate forming a kind of battery with positive and negative
terminals) This can drive electric currents over very large distances This is
similar to low pressure and high pressure areas on earth which cause winds
to blow over long distances over the planet The cellular structure of plasma
can be seen clearly in the granulation of the Sun
Filaments and Helical (or Spiral) Formations
Wherever charged particles flow in a neutralizing medium, such as free
electrons in a background of ions, the charged particle flow or current produces
rings of magnetic field lines around the current, pinching the plasma
into multi-filamentary strands of conduction currents These filaments can
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
be found in laboratory plasma and abound in cosmic plasma.
The Cosmos is a vast, interconnected body of invisible magnetic fields
guiding almost invisible electrified streams of charged particles that become
visible only where they converge (or pinch) to spin out galaxies and
stars. ‘Computer simulations have been telling us for several years that most
of the “missing” gas in the universe should be in hot filaments,’ said Smita
Mathur, an Ohio State University researcher. ‘Most of those filaments are
too faint to see, but it looks like we are finally finding their shadows.’ At
cosmic scales, scientists have now confirmed that filaments exist between
Super Magma Universes
The physical world is only a small part of the entire spectrum
of matter. It is the most dense, most concrete of a series of
worlds ranging from the extremely tenuous ‘superphysical’ to
the solid physical. This is an idea found in ancient Egyptian
mysteries, Hinduism and Buddhism.
Shirley Nicholson, 1977
Commenting on Charles Leadbeater’s book, ‘Inner Life’ 3
Professor Parker, speaking at the 2004 Institute of Physics Nuclear
Physics Conference in Edinburgh, UK, said, ‘The universe as we know it is
just a tiny part of the Cosmos.’ This statement will not surprise any metaphysicist.
It is a fundamental fact in metaphysics that there are multiple
super and mirror universes. According to the metaphysical literature, as
we move-up super universes, we will find more energetic particles, with
higher frequency, mass or spin. The higher energy allows particles to break
free into their constituents. As more and more energy becomes available,
molecules overcome binding energies and break-up into atoms. Unlike the
physical universe, the objects in these universes are therefore generally not
composed of molecules. When more energy is available, atoms break-up
into sub-atomic particles to form plasma. Super particles have higher mass,
energy and frequency than their physical counterparts – described under
the Standard Model used by physicists. They form super plasma in higher
energy universes.
Based on descriptions in the metaphysical literature which will follow
in later chapters, structures found in standard magma also abound in super
universes and in our invisible bodies. This provides evidence that higher
energy super universes and the bodies that inhabit them are substantially
composed of magma. In fact, this will explain many of the features,
magm a (magnetic plasm a) univ erses | Chapter 3
descriptions and behavior of the ‘subtle bodies’ described by experimental
metaphysicists all over the world and in ancient scriptures. Leadbeater
says that on higher planes, everything is what down here we would call
luminous (in other words it emits light – like plasma,) and above a certain
level everything may be said to be permeated by fire. ‘Try to think of a fire
which does not burn, but is in a liquid form, something like water,’ he says.
‘All astral matter is in itself luminous, though an astral body is a sphere
of living fire.’4 A liquid fire is a perfect description of plasma. Dark bodies
include the luminous etheric body in its crystalline state, the fiery astral
body in its liquid state and the luminous causal body in its crystalline state.
These bodies are composed of super particles in a plasma state confined by
magnetic fields – in other words ‘super magnetic plasma’ bodies or simply
‘super magma bodies.’
According to Anthony Peratt, electrons passing through space are captured
by the Earth’s magnetic field and follow spiral tracks about the lines of
force.5 Helical and spiral structures evidence twisted magnetic lines of force
and are common in cosmic magnetic plasma. They have also been described
in the metaphysical literature. The helical path of charged qi particles when
entering the chakra at the top of the head or from below is often depicted in
Taoist or Qigong illustrations.
Electromagnetic Universes
The higher energy universes and our universe are increasingly being considered
parts of an ‘electric’ or ‘electromagnetic’ multiverse. The magma
universe, which abounds in electrical and magnetic fields, is an electromagnetic
Even the concept of ‘mass’ is now being explained through the interaction
of electric charges in matter with the zero point field. Bernhard Haisch
says that there is no such thing as mass – only electric charge and energy,
which together create the illusion of mass. ‘The physical universe is made
up of mass-less electric charges immersed in a vast, energetic, all-pervasive
electromagnetic field. It is the interaction of those charges and the electromagnetic
field that creates the appearance of mass.’ 6
In other words, Haisch explains, the book you now hold in your hands
is, strictly speaking, mass-less – it is physically nothing more than a collection
of electric charges embedded in a universal energetic electromagnetic
field and acted on by the field in such a way as to make you think the book
has mass. Its apparent weight and solidity arise from the interactions of the
charges in your body with the pervasive field.

Super Magma electromagnetic Bodies
‘Saint’ Paul 1
If the universe consists of 1% visible and 99% invisible matter (both baryonic
and not baryonic), it would be surprising if our body (in its totality) is not composed
of both visible and invisible matter and energy In fact, if it was not, we
would need a good explanation for that!
every student of Occultism* is familiar with the fact that man
possesses several bodies or vehicles through which he is enabled
to express himself on the various planes of nature – physical,
astral, mental and so forth
arthur e Powell 2
*Occult simply means ‘hidden ’ Before newton, the gravitational force
was considered occult because it was an invisible force In fact, dark matter,
by the same definition, can be considered ‘occult matter ’ We will not be using
this word, however, as the word seems archaic and has other connotations
which are not relevant here according to traditional metaphysical theories
(found in almost every major religion), the ordinarily visible physical body is
sup er magm a elect rom agnetic bo dies | Chapter 4
accompanied by at least seven other invisible bodies. These invisible bodies
are generally described as ‘subtle’ bodies in metaphysical literature because
they interact only weakly with our universe. In the current context, they can
be called ‘dark’ bodies – i.e. bodies which we own and operate but are currently
not ordinarily visible to most of us, and consisting of highly energetic
or massive particles.
It was quite common earlier in the 1900s for the ‘Theosophists’ to
describe these dark or subtle bodies as ‘clouds’ or ‘atmospheres’ surrounding
(and interpenetrating) our ordinarily visible bodies. Dark bodies, seers
say, appear as diffused clouds around the ordinarily visible biomolecular
bodies. If a person suspends his prejudices and tries to observe these clouds
using a relaxed gaze – over time these diffused clouds gradually become
more definite and exhibit specific features and colors. These clouds are also
sometimes called ‘auras.’ This description of clouds surrounding the biomolecular
body parallels descriptions of dark matter clouds surrounding
galaxies by leading scientific researcher on dark matter, Vera Rubin. She
says that dark matter is spread out around the galaxy, reaching beyond the
visible galactic edge and bulging above and below the otherwise flattened,
luminous galactic disk.
Try to envision a typical spiral galaxy, such as our Milky Way,
as a relatively flat, glowing disk embedded in a spherical halo
of invisible material – almost like an extremely diffused cloud.
Vera Rubin 3
The notion that there is a subtle field of energy around the
human body, a halo-like envelope of light that exists just
beyond normal human perception, can be found in many
ancient traditions.
Michael Talbot 4
In their book Future Science, John White and parapsychologist Stanley
Krippner list 97 different cultures that refer to the aura with 97 different
names. Just as our galaxy is embedded in a spherical halo (as pointed out by
Vera Rubin, above) our invisible dark bodies are embedded inside an almost
transparent energetic ovoid or bubble.
Invisible, dark or subtle bodies are composed of dark matter which
congregates and densifies within and around our visible biomolecular bodies.
In almost every culture, these bodies have been observed by some and
the knowledge about them have been passed down from one generation to
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
another, and documented in religious and metaphysical literature. Barbara
Brennan calls these bodies, collectively, the ‘human energy field.’ According
to Brennan, the human energy field is composed of seven levels which
extends further and further out from the ordinarily visible body and pulsates
at an increasing frequency.  All of these levels influence and interact
with each other as if they were one body. She also says that these bodies
are composed of plasma and holographically influence each other.5 Each
body is a frame of reference associated with a particular universe in which
‘experiences’ or ‘events’ take place. The higher energies of super particles
allow them to break free of binding energies which lower energy standard
particles are susceptible to. Hence, higher energy bodies are generally
of the nature of plasma composed of higher energy particles rather than
molecular-based compounds that make up the low-energy physical-biomolecular
body that is ordinarily visible in our universe. Sylvan Muldoon
and Hereward Carrington also report that the common belief is that it (the
etheric and astral bodies) is not unlike matter – the difference being only in
‘the arrangement of its atoms.’ 6 This hints at the possibility that the particles
were not arranged as in molecules but as in plasma.
The idea of a coherent plasma body surrounding and interacting with
biological organisms was first proposed in 1944 by V S Grischenko, a
physicist and engineer. Also, Dr. Victor Inyushin, a biophysicist at Kirov
State University in Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan, has been the leading theoretical
spokesman for the biological plasma body. Like the visible human body,
the bioplasmic body is thought to be relatively stable in varying environmental
conditions – although it is particularly susceptible to electrical and
magnetic perturbations.
To a metaphysicist, dark matter and energy is not much different from
‘subtle matter and energy’ – a term used frequently in metaphysical literature.
The term ‘subtle’ used by metaphysicists is not much different from
‘weakly interacting’ used by physicists to describe the nature of interactions
between ordinary and dark matter. Physicists say dark matter ‘interacts
weakly’ with ordinarily visible matter. They could well have said that there
are ‘subtle interactions’ between dark and ordinarily visible matter.
Subtle matter (in traditional metaphysical theories) is considered to be
made up of highly energetic particles which only becomes visible after some
training in meditation or similar exercises. For some people, this ability to
see the subtle bodies of others and their own comes naturally by using the
senses in their own dark or subtle bodies. Modern ‘seers’ were unanimous
in their opinion that these bodies consist of as yet undiscovered matter and
energy and have mass – long before any widespread awareness of dark matter
or Superstring theories.

Density of Dark Bodies
Universal Density Profile of Dark Matter
In 1910 Leadbeater reported that the densest aggregation of astral (or dark)
matter is within the periphery of the physical body of a man. Similarly,
in the case of the Earth, the greater part of its astral (or dark) matter is
gathered together within the limits of its ordinarily visible physical sphere.
However, the astral body of the Earth as a whole, outside the physical, is
enormously greater than when compared to a human being.7 Extrapolated
to galaxies, we would expect that the proportion of the astral magmasphere
outside an ordinarily visible galaxy to be enormously greater than in the
case of an average person.
This is, in fact, supported by observations. A study using the Sloan
Digital Sky Survey provides the most direct evidence yet that galaxies reside
at the centre of giant, dark matter concentrations that may be 50 times larger
than the visible galaxy itself! The ‘lambda cold dark matter’ model also supports
the density profile observed by Leadbeater. This popular scientific
model explains very well many large-scale structures in the Universe and
predicts that dark matter rapidly increases in density towards the centre of
a galaxy. Astrophysicists modeling the motion of dark matter say that each
clump had a density that peaked in the centre and fell off toward the edges
in the exact same way, independent of its size.8 Observations with the Chandra
X-ray Observatory also support the cold dark model. To test the model,
researchers used Chandra’s sharp optics to measure the temperature and
intensity of the hot, X-ray-
emitting gas in a galaxy cluster some 4 billion
light-years from Earth. The data obtained by John S Arabadjis and Mark W
Bautz of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, along with Gordon P
Garmire of Pennsylvania State University in State College, found that the
density is greater the closer it is to the centre of the cluster.
Fine Tuning
There are, however, some exceptions, which call for a fine-tuning of the cold
dark matter theory. Ron Cowen points out that some observations hint that
the distribution of dark matter in galaxy clusters is spherical rather than
(American) football-shaped (ovoid), as the cold dark matter model suggests.
Researchers, such as Christopher Kochanek of the Harvard-Smithsonian
Centre for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, argue that many of
the apparent points of conflict between theory and observations may vanish
when cosmologists develop more sophisticated models for the complex
effects that specific particles have on galaxy formation.
Dr James Bullock, Postdoctoral Fellow at Ohio State University, says
that the distribution of dark matter in ‘halos’ around galaxies is expected to
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
vary significantly from object to object. The dark matter content of a galaxy,
he says, might vary depending on its size, color, or whether it looks like a
disk (like our Milky Way) or a spheroid (like the Virgo cluster galaxy M87).
Julio Navarro of the University of Victoria in British Columbia suspects
that interactions between ordinary and dark matter underlie the variety of
halo structures. ‘There may be complex interactions … that may lead to significant
changes in the properties of the dark halo compared to the ones
we would get if there was no galaxy there,’ he says. Many galaxies, perhaps
even our own, have a rotating bar of stars and gas at the centre. Some theorists
have suggested that as such bars sweep away dark matter, they could
thin it to different extents. That might account for the range of dark matter
distributions seen.
Dark matter has been regarded by scientists as something that gives
structure to ordinary matter so that the large-scale structures in the universe
are formed. Many metaphysicists hold a similar view with regards to
the effects of subtle matter and energy on physical matter. If the sweepingbar
scenario is right, however, then the tables are turned, at least near the
centres of galaxies, where ordinary matter is calling the shots and pushing
dark matter around. Taking the evidence as a whole, however, it appears
that there is a co-operative process between dark and ordinarily visible matter
in the construction of visible and invisible structures – which will be discussed
in more detail later.
Particle Density
Mainstream Physics
One of the features of plasma is their low density, with inter-ion distances
typically one hundred thousand times those in liquids and solids. Why
is that so? Plasma consist of soups of similar particles with the same
charge – hence the ions mutually repel, maintaining a low density dispersed
structure held together only by external electrical and magnetic fields. This
is unlike ordinary condensed matter (liquid or solid) which possess internal
attractive interactions. For example, a hydrogen atom has a positive charge
in the nucleus with a corresponding and neutralizing negative charge from
an electron. Low density is also a feature of dark matter. ‘Compared to
anything that we are aware of on Earth,’ says astronomer Virginia Trimble
of the University of California Irvine, ‘dark matter is “incredibly diffused”.’
This is an additional reason to believe that dark matter is in the state of
The particle density of our dark subtle bodies is known to be low based
on the metaphysical literature. The low density of super magma bodies
allow them to move through each other without colliding – like ‘collisionless
sup er magm a elect rom agnetic bo dies | Chapter 4
plasma’ in the Earth’s plasmasphere. In the cold dark matter model used by
scientists to study galaxy formation in a flat universe, dark matter is assumed
to be cold and collisionless. Using Hubble Space Telescope images taken
for earlier studies, Priyamvada Natarajan of Yale University looked at how
nearby clusters of galaxies bend the light of distant galaxies. She contends
that the findings rule out the idea that dark matter particles can collide and
interact with one another.
However, observations by the Chandra X-ray Observatory suggest that
by placing limits on the strength of the interaction between dark matter
particles, if dark matter particles do collide, they do so relatively weakly.
Furthermore, David Spergel of Princeton University says that Natarajan’s
findings do not rule out interactions, other than gravitational effects,
among dark matter particles colliding at low speeds. Here, perhaps, we
have a hint that electromagnetic effects in plasma may have a significant
role to play when dark magma bodies make contact.
Metaphysical Literature
Robert Monroe observes that the ‘Second Body’ can penetrate walls. He
concludes that ‘anything that can interpenetrate a wall must have very little
density,’ although he says he has observed an initial resistance when the
Second Body interpenetrates another object. He says this may be caused
by some form of surface tension, which, once broken, permits the less
dense mass to pass between the molecules of the wall. A body made of
magma would have a natural tendency to form an electrified ‘sheath’ around
itself – which will produce a ‘surface tension’ and the initial resistance that
Robert Monroe observed. The low density implies, according to him, that
the body has very little mass.9
Leadbeater reported around 1910 that astral bodies can and do constantly
interpenetrate one another fully, without in the least injuring one
another. People on the astral plane, according to him, can and do pass
through one another constantly, and through fixed astral objects. When
passing through another magma body for a short time, two astral bodies
are not appreciably affected. (This echoes Chandra’s observations, as noted
above, whose results suggest that if dark matter particles do collide, they do
so relatively weakly.)
However, if the interpenetration lasts for some time (in other words,
when the magma bodies are moving at very slow speed or are stationary),
Leadbeater says that they do affect one another as far as their rates of vibrations
(or frequencies) are concerned.10 This is not surprising, as magma
bodies are electromagnetic bodies. When two magma bodies pass through
each other (at slow speed) there are electromagnetic effects. There could be
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
changes in frequencies and distributions of charges over the magma body,
after prolonged interaction.
The ability of magma bodies to pass through other magma bodies is
a characteristic of low-density magnetic plasma. Although these magma
bodies can assume liquid and solid-crystal states (as will be explained in
the next Chapter), these are relative terms. Leadbeater explains that astral
matter is only relatively solid. The particles in the densest astral matter are
further apart, relative to their size, than even gaseous particles. (As noted
above, inter-ion distances in plasma are typically one hundred thousand
times that of solids and liquids.) Hence, it is easier for two of the densest
astral bodies to pass through each other than it would be for the lightest gas
to diffuse itself in the air.11
Particle densities decrease as we move up super universes. As a result,
an object in a super universe has a lower total mass relative to its linked
body in the physical universe. The converse is true when we go down the
energy ladder – mass, energy and frequency of particles decrease but particle
density and the total mass of bodies increase. According to Johannes
Fisslinger when atoms combine into molecules, the vibratory rate (or frequency)
decreases and (total) mass increases. From molecules; living cells,
which have a lower vibratory rate (i.e. frequency) than atoms or molecules,
Dark matter vs. Magnetic Plasma (Magma)
Magnetic plasma of different densities and other properties separate into
different onion-like rings, with denser matter separating from the more
tenuous matter – so does dark matter, based on studies of its density distribution
in galaxies. Dark matter objects are supposed to pass right through
each other, just like collisionless plasma. Dark matter is described as ‘diffused,’
just like plasma. All this indicates that dark matter (just like visible
matter) is largely in the form of plasma. Hence, plasma cosmologists should
consider not only the effects of visible plasma but invisible plasma in the
architecture of the universe.
Plasmas are not just the ‘fourth state of matter’ – they are really
the first state in modern cosmology, and they continue to be,
by far, the dominant state of visible matter in the universe;
perhaps also of invisible matter as well if so-called ‘dark
matter’ continues to remain unobserved and unexplained.

Weight of Dark Bodies
The term ‘aura’ is used in this book to mean only the visible radiation emanating
from a dark or subtle body. Brennan uses the term to include the
bodies themselves. According to Brennan ‘aura’ appears to have weight.13
Andrew Jackson Davis believed it to weigh about one ounce.
Others say it does not weigh anything. However, being
substance, the astral body must have some weight.
Sylvan Muldoon & Hereward Carrington, 1973 14
Robert Monroe also believes that the ‘Second Body’ has weight and
is subject to the gravitational force, although much less than the physical
body.15 If aura has weight, it means it is subject to Earth’s gravitational
force. It also means it has mass. It can be sucked into a black hole or be
drawn towards the (visible) Sun just as any other physical object would be.
Remember that all universes (in the spectrum of universes under discussion)
share the same gravitational field – this is consistent with ‘M theory’
(an over-arching Superstring theory which will be discussed briefly later in
this book).
Although each particle in a higher frequency body may be more massive,
the total mass of each body decreases because of the lower particle
density as we move up the energy ladder. Hence, super magma bodies are
very light compared to the dense biomolecular body (as noted by Muldoon
and Carrington, above). At the highest energy levels the bodies are close
to ‘nothing.’ Assuming a constant gravitational pull from the Earth, the
physical-etheric body would be much lighter than the physical-biomolecular
body. The astral body – even lighter – and lighter still the next body as we
move up the energy ladder of super magma bodies.
Magnetism and Super Magma Bodies
In a famous scientific experiment conducted by Dr Bernard Grad, seeds
were separated into two groups, differing only in the water with which each
group was treated. At the end of several weeks, Grad discovered that plants
watered with healer-treated water were of greater height and chlorophyll
content. His experiment was repeated a number of times in the same laboratory
and by other labs in the United States, with similar results. Grad
was also successful in stimulating the growth rate of plants utilizing water
treated with common magnets. Dr John Zimmerman, utilizing ultra-sensitive
equipment, has detected weak but significant increases in the magnetic
field emanations of healers’ hands during the healing process.16 The magnetic
fields in dark magma bodies are amplified when the density of the
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
plasma is increased through ‘energetic practices’ such as ‘Qigong’ or sitting
As demonstrated by Kirlian images taken by Dr Thelma Moss during
her explorations into Soviet ‘psychotronics’ research during the 1970’s, the
presence of a magnet enhances and gives directional orientation to the usual
aura effect, generating visible bluish tendrils of energy. This shows that
the plasma in our super magma bodies are ordered and shaped by magnetic
fields. This responsiveness to magnetism is further evidence that the subtle
or dark bodies are composed of magma.
Magnetism has held a particular interest for ‘energy practitioners’ (both
modern and ancient.) Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, a modern mystic with a
large following, believes that the body has its own magnetic force. This was
why, he says, ‘the ancient “holy man” was careful about which direction
he would face when sleeping.’ According to him, ‘the holy man was always
mindful to be properly aligned with the Earth’s magnetic field, so that he
is constantly magnetised by it.’ According to Rajneesh, if you sleep at an
angle to this force, you will weaken your body’s magnetic field. Conversely,
if you lie in the proper direction your body’s magnetic field will be strengthened.
He says that the stars too have magnetic forces. On special occasions
certain stars are particularly magnetic. So if you are seated in a particular
posture at a certain moment a particular star will cause your magma body
to become especially magnetised.17
The last statement now becomes ‘more believable’ since we know that
our dark magma bodies are highly susceptible to electromagnetic fields
and that stars (including their super magma counterpart bodies) generate
strong magnetic fields. Constellations of stars and clusters of galaxies
could also affect the formation of super magma bodies on Earth through
electromagnetic interventions – which in turn influences the formation of
the physical-biomolecular body. Dr Yang Jwing-Ming reports that many
Qigong practitioners claim that if they sleep with their head pointing north
they sleep better, and feel more rested and balanced the next morning.18
The claims become understandable and relevant if we accept that magnetic
fields are embedded in our magma bodies.
A strong bar magnet placed on top of another bar of non-magnetised
iron can induce a magnetic field in the non-magnetised bar or make a weak
magnetic field stronger. The Earth’s (physical, astral and causal) magnetic
fields when aligned with the human body’s can serve to strengthen the
(physical-etheric, astral and causal) bodies’ magnetic fields, although the
immediate effect on the physical-biomolecular body would be negligible.

Color and Magnetism
‘Color therapy’ has also fascinated many ‘energy practitioners.’ There is a
relationship between color and magnetism. Physicists, Arthur Epstein and
his colleagues at Ohio State University, have produced light-induced magnetisation
in an organic material, tetra-cyano-ethylene. Blue light caused
the magnetic field of the material to become 1.5 times stronger. Green light
reversed the magnetism.19 In other words, the strength of the magnetic field
can be ‘tuned’ with color. Potentially, different colored lights may be used
to tune the magnetic fields of our magma bodies.
Electrical Aspects of Super Magma Bodies
Super Electricity
The electrical and magnetic properties of dark or subtle bodies have been
reported by many experimental metaphysicists. This should come as no surprise
as magma bodies are essentially electromagnetic bodies – not standard
electromagnetism but super electromagnetism or super electricity – which
human beings with active higher energy magma bodies can sense – at least
some of them. In other words, it resembles electricity but because the current
is caused by flows of charged super particles they also have other
attributes not normally associated with standard electrons and protons in
our universe. Leadbeater warns us that we must not confuse this (super)
force with (standard) electricity, though in some ways it resembles it.20
It has often been asked whether the Anu [or ‘Ultimate Physical
Atom’] is the electron. The answer is definitely, No. What it is
remains to be determined.
Charles Leadbeater and Annie Besant, 1919 21
Valerie Hunt does not believe that ‘subtle energy’ is purely electromagnetic
in nature i.e. it is not the ‘standard’ electromagnetism which is
found in our universe. ‘We have a feeling that it is much more complex
and without doubt composed of an as yet undiscovered energy,’ she says.
Psychics describe it as having a higher frequency or vibration than normal
matter-energy. According to her, even ancient Hindu literature asserts that
the energy body possesses a higher vibration (or frequency) than normal
Many healers, seers and even those who have undergone near-death
experiences, have noted that the effects of subtle energy entering and circulating
in the meridians of the etheric double ‘feels’ electrical, but is certainly
not the same as the electricity that flows through electrical appliances
or bioelectricity commonly associated with the heart, brain or skin. These
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
‘electrons’ associated with subtle energy are super particles. The super electricity
or ‘selectricity’ has been described as ‘qi’ and ‘prana’ by the Chinese
and Indians, respectively. Robert Monroe says that the relationship between
the Second Body (the etheric double) and electricity and electromagnetic
fields is quite significant. He gives two accounts of his experiences with the
electrical nature of the ‘Second Body.’
In one experiment he was in a charged Faraday cage. He attempted to
move through the cage but although he got out of the physical-biomolecular
body without much difficulty he seemed to be entangled in a large bag
made of flexible wire. When he tried to push through the bag he could not
go through it. He says he struggled like a trapped animal in a snare and
finally went back to the physical-biomolecular body. According to Monroe,
it was evidently not the wire itself, but the electrical field pattern set up in
fundamentally the same shape as the cage, but more flexible that restricted
him. He suggested that maybe this could be the basis for an electromagnetic
‘ghost catcher!’
Monroe cited another experiment in which he floated over the sidewalk
where there were power primaries containing fairly high voltage electric
current. It seemed to him that his Second Body was attracted and guided by
these power lines. He asks, ‘Do electrical fields attract this Second Body?
Is this the medium through which it travels?’23 We have already discussed
the fact that in magma, charged particles are accelerated by electric fields
along Birkeland currents and guided by magnetic fields. The plasma environments
of the various super universes (identified in metaphysics) are in
fact electromagnetic mediums.
The motion of super magma bodies may be directed by Birkeland currents
which serve as ‘electromagnetic highways’ in the plasma. In other
words, when an astral body ‘flies off’ to another location, it moves along
Birkeland currents – although not consciously doing so. It is analogous to
the passage of a charged particle being directed by a magnetic field line or
an electric train being guided by a single rail using magnetic levitation. By
changing electrical and magnetic polarities and the strength and distribution
of charges in the body through an act of will, electromagnetic super
magma bodies are able to travel rapidly from one location to another. In this
way, it would appear to the traveller that he is moving by thought alone.
Effects of Electromagnetic Fields on Magma Bodies
Hunt conducted experiments on the energy fields of subjects confined to a
shielded room, where the level of electromagnetism in the atmosphere can
be altered without changing the gravitational force or oxygen levels. Subjects
gave a continuous audio report of what they were feeling. Simultaneously,
sup er magm a elect rom agnetic bo dies | Chapter 4
an ‘auric reader’ observed the ‘auras’ of the subjects.24 The energy field
studied was most probably the electromagnetic etheric-double – the lowest
frequency magma body. Dark matter interacts only weakly with the physical
universe. Nevertheless, sympathetic resonance and induction (which will
be discussed in a later chapter) allows interactions between the visible and
dark universes.
Hunt found that when the electrical aspect of the atmosphere in the
room in the experiment was withdrawn, the auric fields became disorganised,
scattered and incoherent. Sensory feedback was so impaired that
subjects were totally unaware of the location of their bodies in space. The
subjects burst into tears and sobbed, although they reported that they were
not sad, their bodies responded as if they were threatened, as they might be
if the electromagnetic environment which nourished them was gone. Any
sense of body boundary was absent. The aura readers described the energy
as no longer flowing; but rather as jumping between people and ‘chakras’
(the latter are vortexes in subtle bodies, which will be described in more
detail in Chapter 9). Inside, she saw energy flowing in an extensive mesh
network described as a fishnet energy flow that did not correspond with
meridian pathways. When the electrical field of the room was increased
beyond the usual level, the auric fields were restored to normalcy.
On the other hand, if the electrical aspect of the room remained normal
but the magnetism was decreased, motor coordination deteriorated.
Subjects could not balance their bodies; they had difficulty touching finger
to nose or performing simple coordinated movements. When the magnetic
field was increased beyond the normal state, subjects could stand easily on
one foot, even on tiptoes, or lean to previously impossible angles without
falling. Motor coordination had somehow improved.25
Hunt’s experiments show that any disturbance to the electromagnetic
fields generated by super magma bodies can cause a loss of the bodies’
boundaries – evidencing that electromagnetic fields are confinement mechanisms
that keep the plasma within the specific boundaries of our super
magma bodies.
Sunspots and Magnetic Storms
Dr Yang Jwing-Ming says that magnetic storms and sunspot outbreaks affect
energy patterns in the human body. He also says that the energy from
the Sun has a more significant effect than energy from Earth.26 Harold Burr
made an analysis of the changing potentials of trees and sunspot activity as
recorded in Zurich, Switzerland. He found the correlation between the two
sets of measurements extraordinary. As sunspot numbers increased, voltage
gradients in the trees increased. When sun spot numbers decreased, there
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
was a corresponding decrease in the voltage gradients in the trees.
Magnetic fields penetrate just about anything that does not have high
iron content, including buildings and the human body. The human physical-
biomolecular body has a magnetic permeability almost identical to that
of air. Magnetic fields are therefore deeply absorbed in their entirety by our
bodies and can exert a force on the blood’s ions or electrolytes.27
According to Burr, records show that the ‘L-fields’ of trees vary not only
with sunlight and darkness but also with cycles of the Moon, with magnetic
storms and with sunspots. If such extra-terrestrial forces can influence the
relatively simple L-fields of trees we would expect them to have an even
greater influence on the more complex L-fields of men and women; and
there is evidence that they do, he says.28
According to Dr Yang, since we are part of the Earth’s electromagnetic
field, our own fields are affected by variations in the Earth’s energy field.
These variations can be caused by such sources as the Moon, the Sun, or
even the stars.29
The most obvious cycle we are exposed to is the diurnal cycle. Every
24 hours our bodies go through a cycle as the Earth rotates around its axis.
Another cycle is generated by the Moon’s influence on the Earth, as the
Moon revolves around the Earth every 28 days. Just as the (physical) Moon
and the Sun cause high tides in Earth’s oceans, it also causes tides in Earth’s
astral and causal magmaspheres (which will be discussed later). Due to the
tilt of the Earth’s axis, the Sun moves higher and lower during the year generating
an annual cycle and seasonal variations. The Chinese believe that
the Earth and human beings go through other cycles every twelve and sixty
years because of the influence of the stars.30
Acoustic Waves within Super Magma Bodies
Ulf Torkelsson, Lecturer at the Department of Physics of Göteborg University
(Gothenburg, Sweden), explains that in an ordinary gas there are
only sound waves generated by the oscillations in the pressure of the gas.
In magnetic plasma, however, we get a new type of wave called an ‘Alfvén
wave.’ Alfvén waves can be thought of as vibrations in the magnetic field
lines in plasma. The effect of the magnetic force is similar to the tension
in a guitar string. If you start to shake a field line the magnetic force will
attempt to restore the field line to its original position. However, the force,
in attempting to restore equilibrium, will usually repel the field line too
far, so a vibration results, generating an Alfvén wave that propagates along
the field line. Alfvén waves are transverse waves, that is, they oscillate in a
sup er magm a elect rom agnetic bo dies | Chapter 4
plane perpendicular to the direction of propagation of the wave.31 Transverse
standing waves are generated by the strings of all stringed instruments
(including pianos, harps, guitars, etc.).
According to Barbara Brennan, the etheric body consists of a definite
structure of lines of force and sparks of bluish-white light move along its
energy lines.32 Since there is magnetic tension along field lines, these lines
behave as strings under tension (like the strings in a guitar, violin or piano).
When interacting with magma bodies (particularly in the crystalline state)
therefore, a tone may be heard due to the vibrations of the magnetic field
lines in the magma body. The magnetic field in a magma body can therefore
operate as a musical instrument. According to Brennan, the seventh level
(the lower Causal Body in its crystalline state) is like a standing light wave of
intricate shape and form, vibrating at an extremely high rate. She also says
that if she meditated on the form a sound could be heard.33
Is it Sound?
Leadbeater says that in astral life people often think that they are playing on
astral musical instruments; but in reality they are only making vibrations by
their thought, which produces the effect of sound. ‘Sound in the ordinary
sense of the word is not possible in the astral world,’ he says.34 His description
suggests the behavior of acoustic waves in magnetic plasma. According
to Wayne Hu, the oscillations of compression and expansion of Alfvén
waves within plasma are very much like the sound waves that fill the body
of an acoustic guitar when a string is plucked.35 They are very similar, but
not the same – as what Leadbeater was trying to explain around 1910! The
sound that Brennan hears is caused by the vibrations of the magnetic field
lines frozen into super magma bodies. The vibration itself may be caused by
the incessant spinning and pulsations of the chakras and other electromagnetic
activities that go on within magma bodies.
Leadbeater observes that each magma body has an average tone – a combination
of all the vibrations of the ovoid. According to him, the individual
tones from each body or the nuclei of these bodies generate a chord which
establishes the ‘name’ of the individual.36 With mobile phone technology
now familiar to most people, we may describe it as the mobile ‘number’ of
the individual – when expressed in frequencies and numbers. This allows
some people to send their prayers or thoughts specifically to another person,
with accuracy as good as that available in a mobile phone communications
network. Since magma is a strong radiator of electromagnetic waves,
this chord (or the composite frequency) of the individual is constantly being
broadcast across the local multiverse. (According to Science, electromagnetic
waves propagate to infinite distances.)

Liquid-Crystal Magma Bodies
& Q-Balls
Complex Plasmas
Complex plasmas contain positive ions, negative electrons, neutral particles
and relatively larger artificial globules. These artificial globules, which are
often called ‘micro-particles’ in complex plasma experiments, are introduced
into the plasma so that scientists can study how they behave as they are larger
and hence more easily observed than microscopic electrons or positive ions.
Electrons are lighter than positive ions so they are more mobile and more
of them fill up the artificial globules. Hence, there is a net negative charge
in the artificial globules, effectively making the globules behave like large or
more massive electrons (analogous to super particles). There is an opposite,
net positive charge in the surrounding environment. Scientists then use electromagnetic
fields to manipulate these globules to see how they behave.
Liquid-Crystal Complex Plasmas
In 1994 scientists found that complex plasmas can switch back and forth
between a liquid and crystalline state like liquid-crystal.1 Liquid-crystals
occupy a state of matter intermediate between the solid-crystal state of matter
and the liquid state of matter. Some have described it as a new state of
matter. According to Gregor Morfill and his colleagues who presented their
liqui d-cryst al magm a bo dies & q-balls | Chapter 5
scientific paper on ‘A review of liquid and crystalline plasmas – new physical
states of matter?,’ liquid and crystalline phases can be formed in complex
plasmas because of the strong electrical interactions between the globules
in the complex plasma.2 In separate experiments, G Gozadinos and his colleagues
confirmed this. According to them, a complex or ‘dusty’ plasma
may undergo phase transitions and condense to form ‘liquid plasmas’ and
‘plasma crystals’ because of the electrostatic interaction potential between
the globules and confinement by the electric field.3
Artificial Globules and the ‘Anu’
In Hindu metaphysics, the ‘anu’ is described as a physical atom and ‘paramanu’
is described as a super-physical particle. Leadbeater calls these ‘anu’
the ‘ultimate physical atom’ or UPA. He uses the word ‘ultimate’ to denote
the fact that any further breakdown of the anu will result in particles that
do not belong to our low-energy physical universe, but a higher-energy universe
that metaphysicists have called the ‘astral universe.’4
According to Leadbeater and Besant, a positive and a negative anu,
when brought near to each other, attract each other; and then commence
to revolve around each other; forming a neutral arrangement. These neutral
arrangements are relatively stable. Combinations of three or more anu
are positive, negative or neutral; according to the internal arrangement.
Stephen Phillips, a theoretical physicist who has studied Leadbeater’s and
Besant’s work in detail, says that the positive and negative types of anu have
opposite magnetic polarity. In the former ‘force comes out’; in the latter it
‘disappears.’ According to Phillips, this observation is consistent with the
elementary idea of north and south magnetic poles as sources and sinks of
magnetic fields.5
Both anu and globules in complex plasmas spin. Morfill and his colleagues
experimenting with liquid and crystalline plasmas say that a qualitative
analysis relating to the influence of a strong magnetic field on the state of
complex dusty plasmas indicates that the dust shape asymmetry, together
with the presence of plasma charging flux, creates an angular momentum
flux on the globule causing its rotation or spin.6 Leadbeater and Besant
observed that the anu had three proper motions: It turns incessantly upon
its own axis, spinning like a top; it describes a small circle with its axis (i.e.
it ‘precesses’ – like the Earth); and it has a regular pulsation.7
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Influence of Electric Fields
Anu appear to interact with electric fields in the same way that globules do.
An electric current brought to bear upon the anu retards its motions. When
exposed to an electric current, the anu arrange themselves in parallel rows
of ‘particle chains’ – just like globules in complex plasma. A paper presented
by A Piel and his colleagues provides an image which shows the globules
arranged in parallel rows 8 – exactly as Leadbeater and Besant depicted in
their diagram – published in their book ‘Occult Chemistry in 1919!9 A Piel
and his colleagues call these arrangements ‘particle chains.’
Artificial Globules and the ‘Ganu’
A group of anu will be designated with the term ‘ganu’ in this book. There
are also remarkable correlations in the behavior of ganu and artificial globules
in complex plasma experiments. Each ganu, just like a globule, consists
of a group of positively and negatively charged particles – usually one outnumbering
the other so that there is a net positive or negative charge. Each
ganu, just like a globule, is contained within a spherical wall.10 Besides a net
electric charge, ganu may also have a net magnetic polarity – depending on
their composition of anu – just like a globule. Phillips is convinced that ganu
are quarks and anu are sub-quarks, based on Leadbeater’s and Besant’s
observations.11 Quarks create everyday particles like protons by sticking
together in packets of two’s and three’s.
According to Leadbeater, ‘the anu gather around themselves six other anu
to form a globule of vibrating energy.’12 We will call this group of anu a
‘qion.’ A qion is a type of ganu – since it is a group of anu. Being a ganu, it
behaves in a similar fashion to artificial globules in complex plasmas. The
qion is a ganu of seven anu trapped by electromagnetic forces and which
has a net electric charge and magnetic polarity. The configuration (1+6)
of a qion, as described by Leadbeater, is stable. According to A Piel and
his colleagues, plasma clusters with certain ‘magic’ numbers of particles
represent particularly stable configurations, among them the system with
19 particles with the configuration: 1+6+12. The six-fold symmetry and the
commensurate number of particles in the outer shell is responsible for the
stability – according to the scientific team.13
Energy Depletion
William Zajc, from the ‘PHEN IX scientific collaboration,’ explains that
in a dense plasma environment, fast-moving quarks go through frequent
interactions with other quarks and gluons which can sap their energy.
liqui d-cryst al magm a bo dies & q-balls | Chapter 5
From the metaphysical perspective, this makes sense. The qion is a type
of quark. Many metaphysicists have reported energy depletion in qions,
including Leadbeater.
Leadbeater observes that the globule (or qion), once charged, remains
as a sub-atomic element, and is not subject to any loss of force unless and
until it is absorbed and used by some living creature. According to Leadbeater,
as the different streams of atoms do their work, ‘the “charge of vitality”
is withdrawn from them, precisely as an electrical charge might be,’ he
says. The ‘atoms’ grow gradually paler as they are swept along the nerves.
When the ‘atoms’ are emptied of their charge, they either enter into combinations
with the body or pass out through the pores of the body or through
the ordinary channels. When they are thrown out from the body through
the pores – they generate what is called the ‘health aura.’14
Are Qions and Ganu Quarks?
According to Madame Blavatsky, a metaphysicist, qions represent some of
the highest energy etheric particles associated with the physical universe.15
(The physical-etheric state of matter will be discussed in more detail in
later chapters. As the name ‘physical’ suggests, it is very close in terms of
frequency and energy levels to our everyday visible physical world.)
Qions appear to behave like quarks – but are they quarks? Leadbeater
and Besant thought they were observing the physical chemical atoms when
they recorded their findings in their book ‘Occult Chemistry.’ They recorded
that the hydrogen atom consists of a neutral cluster of six ganu. The
cluster consisted of two sets of three ganu (or two ‘triplets’). Each ganu, in
turn, contained three anu – which are combinations of positive and negative
anu. Similarly, other gross physical atoms also consist of clusters of
ganu – that are arranged in triplets and doublets. Their book contains numerous
Stephen Phillips, however, appears to be at a loss to explain why Leadbeater
and Besant saw this type of configuration.17 What Leadbeater and
Besant saw (with their clairvoyant vision) were 6 ganu confined within a
spherical wall. If the ganu were quarks this would mean seeing 6 quarks
confined by a spherical wall. This is inconsistent with physicists’ description
of physical chemical atoms. In our universe, quarks are normally neatly
packaged into neutrons and protons in atoms – 3 quarks in each type of particle.
This leads us to believe that qions are not types of quarks but types of
super quarks or ‘squarks’ – particles predicted by Supersymmetry theory.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Squarks and Sleptons
According to scientists, squarks are the supersymmetric counterparts of
quarks. According to metaphysicists, every standard physical atom has its
super physical etheric counterpart – which means the same thing. What
Leadbeater and Besant were observing appears to be the physical-etheric
super counterparts of hydrogen and other elements – not the low-energy
chemical atoms in the periodic table charted by Science. They observed ‘bags
of squarks.’ Candidates for dark matter include point-like particles such as
neutralinos predicted by Supersymmetry theory and extended objects such
as ‘Q-balls.’ Q-balls are large bags of particles such as squarks and sleptons,
which can be as big as particles we call atoms. Furthermore, there is a hint
that Leadbeater may have used an ‘etheric lens’ to view the ‘atoms.’18
The ‘atoms’ observed by Leadbeater and Besant and illustrated in their
book, ‘Occult Chemistry,’ were therefore neutral Q-balls – the supersymmetric
objects identified by physicists and the physical-etheric particles of
metaphysicists! Qions are charged Q-balls which are regularly absorbed by
super magma bodies and transported within meridians to distribute energy
throughout the body.
Q-balls can arise when certain types of condensates become unstable. The
condensate will fragment into Q-balls which represent the true ground
state. According to a paper on Q-balls by Tuomas Multam and Iiro Vilja,
Q-balls with various charges were seen (in a computer simulation) to form
from a condensate.19
Under Supersymmetry theory, Q-balls are believed to typically fuse,
exchange charge, scatter elastically or pass through each other depending on
the relative phase difference between them and the size of the balls. Larger
balls are more likely to fuse in a collision (creating even larger balls) whereas
smaller balls are more likely to scatter either elastically or while exchanging
some of their charge. Collisions can alter the charge distribution of Q-balls
quite significantly, provided that collisions are frequent enough. If the Qballs
are initially in the same phase, they typically fuse in a collision. The
average size of a Q-ball then increases while their number decreases.20 In
other words, when Q-balls are ‘in-phase,’ they fuse to form more massive
balls but the density of Q-balls decreases. Q-balls give rise to massive super
particles, often the size of atoms in our universe, which cannot be detected
by current scientific experiments. It may be because of this that Leadbeater
and his contemporaries often refer to super particles as ‘atoms’ – although
they are not atoms in the way that we think of them.
liqui d-cryst al magm a bo dies & q-balls | Chapter 5
Magma Bodies are Liquid-Crystal
Magma bodies regularly absorb Q-balls. The magma body is a complex
plasma of both super point-like particles and extended objects such as Qballs.
Q-balls are analogous to the ‘artificial globules’ in complex plasmas.
Since complex plasmas are liquid-crystal, magma bodies can alternate
between liquid and crystalline states. An act of will can change the state of
the magma body from liquid to the crystal state and vice-versa. An important
feature of liquid-crystals is their tendency to reorient themselves when
a voltage is placed across them. This gives the owner of the body control
over the processes in the body through electromagnetic instructions and
transactions. (This is similar to what happens in our physical-biomolecular
body; which allows the brain to move the body by sending electro-chemical
instructions to the muscles.) According to Paramahansa Yogananda,
on (the physical) Earth a solid must be transformed into liquid through
natural or chemical forces, but ‘astral solids are changed into astral liquids,
gases or energy solely and instantly by the will of the inhabitants.’21 In other
words, the state of matter can be changed by an act of will.
Barbara Brennan observes an interesting dualistic pattern in the
human energy field. Every other level is highly structured standing waves
of light – like crystalline magma, while the levels in-between appear to be
composed of colored fluids in constant motion – like liquid magma. Thus,
the first, third, fifth and seventh levels all have definite structure, while the
second, fourth and sixth are composed of fluid-like substances.22
All subtle bodies which are composed of liquid-crystal magma can exist
in two states – liquid or crystal states. Liquid states allow the expression and
generation of emotions. Crystalline states allow the expression and generation
of templates and concepts.
There are two levels of liquid-crystal alternations. The first is within
the broad categories of Physical (broadly crystalline), Astral (broadly liquid)
and Causal (broadly crystalline) bodies. After the Causal, it is meaningless
to talk about personal bodies. Within these broad categories, we
may add, there is a higher energy and (relatively) lower energy body – i.e. a
higher and lower physical-etheric body, a higher and lower astral body; and
a higher and lower causal body. Hence, there are six super magma bodies
under this classification. Each of these six bodies can operate in both
liquid and crystal states – making twelve states in all. The most ‘fluidic’
body would therefore be the astral body in its liquid state (i.e. the ‘astralemotional’
body) – since it is ‘liquid’ both in its broad category and in its
specific state. Hence, the astral body is also often called the ‘emotional
body’ in the metaphysical literature. It allows for the expression of a wide
variety of emotions.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Brennan includes the Causal Bodies described in this book as ‘Spiritual
Bodies.’ Leadbeater equates the lower Causal Body in this book with the
‘Mental Body.’ This is just a difference in terminology – the underlying facts
are the same. The descriptions of bodies as liquid (fluidic) or crystalline
should be taken to be general descriptions. Bodies in their liquid state also
have some embedded crystalline structures. Conversely, bodies in their
crystalline states incorporate energy ‘flows’ in meridians – this is a liquid or
fluidic action.

Quantum-Like Magma Bodies
As we move up super universes, we move up in frequency and energy levels.
Particles become more massive but particle density falls. As particle density
falls, the total mass of the body decreases.
Magma Bodies become Quantum-Like
de Broglie’s Formula
According to physicist, de Broglie, all particles and bodies have both particle
and wave characteristics. However, the wave-like properties (which accounts
for a lot of the ‘weird’ and ‘non-classical’ behavior of quantum objects) is
inversely related to mass according to de Broglie’s formula. Hence, the fall in
the total mass of a body, as we move up to super universes, will enhance the
wave-like properties of these bodies and give them properties closer to quantum
Sharing the same Quantum State
When a group of particles are cooled to near absolute zero, they fall into the
same quantum state – forming what are known as ‘condensates’ (specifically,
in this case, ‘Bose-Einstein condensates’). In a sense, a group of particles
becomes a super particle and obeys the same quantum mechanical rules as a
single particle. When disturbed by a laser, they move like a wave; rather than
a solid object.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
When we go in the opposite direction – towards higher energies and temperatures
we find Q-balls – according to Supersymmetry theory. In a proton
there can be no more than three normal quarks, because they refuse to
share their quantum state with another quark. But thousands of billions
of squarks and sleptons can share the same quantum state in a tiny Qball
no bigger than an atomic nucleus. Scientists calculate that dark-matter
Q-balls must contain more than 1022 particles. A Q-ball containing 1030
particles would only be roughly 10 times the size of an iron nucleus, but its
mass-energy would be many times that of the iron nucleus. If the particles
in a Q-ball fall into the same quantum state, they would obey quantum
mechanical rules in high temperatures – behaving in similar ways to condensates
at low temperatures. Since super magma bodits are composed of
Q-balls, they must have some quantum properties, particularly when Qballs
fall in-phase.
Collective Behavior of Particles in Plasma
The particles in magma exhibit collective behavior and magma mimics the
properties of condensates. Ideal MHD (magneto-hydrodynamics) often
treats plasma as having zero resistivity, which is very similar to superconduction
arising in condensates. The interior of a neutron star, which contains
plasma under extreme pressure and high temperature, will superconduct,
just like a condensate at very low temperatures.
Macro-Quantum Bodies
The quantum properties of super magma bodies, which are composed
of a complex plasma of Q-balls and other objects, will therefore become
more pronounced and obvious as we move up to higher energy super universes.
Magma bodies in super universes therefore range from semi-classical
in the lower super universes to quantum in the higher super universes.
Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle will apply, for example, in determining
the position and momentum of these bodies. Their measure of existence in
spacetime would also be probabilistic.

Multi-Dimensional Multiverse
Our bodies operate against the backdrop of the local multiverse. The etheric,
astral and causal super universes are subsets of the local multiverse.
Space Dimensions Increase
As we move up super universes or move down to microscopic realms in our
physical universe, the number of dimensions of space increases (the latter
according to Superstring theories). The number of space dimensions increase
from 3 in the physical universe to 4 in the astral universe; and to 5 in the
causal universe. Hence, we move up into super space as we go up the energy

Time Dilation
The measure of time increases as we move up the energy ladder of super universes.
What is perceived as the ‘present’ occupies a longer period than in
the physical universe. A year in the physical universe may be perceived in a
minute in a super universe. Furthermore, the minute in the super universe
may encompass both the future and the past of the lower universe. In other
words, time – instead of being point-like in our universe, encompasses more
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
and more events and becomes space-like as we move up the energy ladder.
For example, it may take you an hour to walk an 8 kilometre stretch of road.
Time passes slowly. On the other hand, if you are looking at a man walking
the same stretch of road from the top floor of a tall building you can view all
points on the road – covering the entire space of the journey, in a second’s
view. Furthermore, you will be able to view where the man walked from and
where he will be walking to. As we move ‘up’ super universes, we will be
looking ‘down’ from a higher vantage point.
In 1899 Leadbeater reported that on a very high plane the past, present
and future are all existing simultaneously. He gives the analogy of a passenger
in a train. The passenger, if he could never leave the train nor alter
its pace, would probably consider the passing landscapes as necessarily successive
and would be unable to conceive their coexistence (through direct
perception).1 Leadbeater apparently anticipated Einstein’s ‘block universe’
concept and the relativity of simultaneity through his direct experience with
super universes. Under Einstein’s (Special) Theory – published in 1905, as
one moved nearer to the speed of light, time dilates and space contracts to
maintain the constant speed of light (in a vacuum). Our journey up super
universes will be analogous to travelling closer and closer to the speed of
light as the total mass of our macroscopic bodies fall.
Time Dilution
Since the number of space dimensions increases as we move up super universes
but the time dimension does not, there would also appear to be a
dilution in the effect of time on our consciousness. This dilutes the impact
of the time dimension.
Interpenetrating Universes of Different Dimensions
Metaphysical theories state that the 3-dimensional physical (i.e. 3 space
dimensions), 4-dimensional astral and 5-dimensional causal universes
interpenetrate each other. How many dimensions an observer experiences
depends on his sensory apparatus.
Limitations of Sensory Apparatus
Piaget noted that infants have only two-dimensional perception until after
about 18 months from birth. In other words, we learn how to see in three
dimensions after we are born. Can we learn how to see in four space dimensions?
After millions of years, human beings have evolved color and threedimensional
perception. Would they evolve over the next few millions
of years, four-dimensional perception? Could a small number of human
beings now have such four-dimensional perception intermittently or under
magm a bo dies in a mu lti -dim ensio nal mu ltiv erse | Chapter 7
special situations? Based on the arguments and evidence presented there
is no reason to doubt that this could be the case. Perhaps, the limitations
are not in the mathematical models (which suggest more dimensions) but
in our everyday sensory apparatus (which is still undergoing evolutionary
changes) and our measuring instruments – which, based on what we can
perceive, are 3-dimensional objects made of standard particles. Somehow
we are restricted by our current perceptual apparatus (i.e. sensory organs
within our physical body composed of standard particles, together with our
brains) to basically 3 space and 1 time dimensions. Michael Duff, a leading
Superstring theorist, says ‘if our senses are to be trusted, we live in a
world with three space and one time dimensions. However, the revival of
the Kaluza-Klein idea, brought about by supergravity and superstrings, has
warned us that this may be only an illusion.’2
These limitations have been reported by Leadbeater and many other
metaphysicists many times. According to Leadbeater, physically we see only
three dimensions – hence, we see all objects and beings only partially. Our
lack of perceptive power, however, does not in any way affect the objects
themselves. He said in 1910, ‘We find ourselves in the midst of a vast universe
built of matter of varying degrees of tenuity, which exists in a space of
(let us suppose) seven dimensions. But we find ourselves in possession of a
consciousness which is capable
of appreciating only three of those dimensions,
and only matter of certain degrees of tenuity. For us, all matter of
other and higher degrees is as if it did not exist. All dimensions beyond the
three are also to us as though they did not exist.’3
What Leadbeater said in 1910 is exactly what physicists are concluding
now: We live in a multi-dimensional multiverse but we can only perceive
three space and one time dimension. Hence, to us the universe appears to
be three-dimensional and extended in time. Hence, the observer and the
observed universe cannot be separated. The 3d universe that we are familiar
with is generated or framed by our perceptual apparatus at a point in
time. Plato, in his famous cave allegory, compared the appearances of our
world with (dark) shadows that are thrown on a cave wall by real objects.
We, as cave dwellers, cannot see the real objects because we cannot look in
their direction – we do not have that freedom. (Incidentally, dimensions are
regarded as ‘degrees of freedom’ by physicists.) We see only the 2d shadows
cast by ‘invisible’ 3d bodies. As such, most of the higher dimensional universe
that we live in is generally concealed from us. However, objects in the
larger universe warp the spacetime around us. They are, as it were, casting
‘shadows’ on our lower-dimensional universe. If we could see through the
eyes of our higher-energy bodies – the astral or causal bodies, ‘dark matter’
would burst into colors that we could not imagine using only our physical
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
bodies. Professor Rubia, speaking at the 2004 Institute of Physics Nuclear
Physics Conference in Edinburgh, UK, says that scientists are prepared for
the possibility that dark matter might be impossible to detect, even with
bigger devices. ‘Then we have to sit down again and reconsider our theories
about how the universe is built,’ he said. (Of course, we could also take up
meditation or some other similar exercises, both traditional and modern,
which would allow us to use our own higher energy bodies to perceive what
is invisible to our physical-biomolecular body – or at least pay attention to
those who can.)
Try explaining to a being (say an animal) who has only black-and-white
vision what red is. When we see with our astral bodies, as most human
beings would after the death of the physical bodies, at least some of the dark
matter will no longer be dark. So we can be sure that what Saint Paul says in
the ‘First Letter to the Corinthians’ (in the Christian Bible) is true, ‘for now
we see through a glass, darkly; but then (we will see) face to face.’ According
to Leadbeater the whole astral world and the whole mental world (the latter
is classified as the ‘lower Causal’ in this book) are both around us here
and now, yet so long as our consciousness is focused in the physical brain
we are blankly unconscious of them. According to him, when the physical
bodies die, the locus of awareness is transferred to the astral body, and at
once we find ourselves seeing the astral part of our world, having lost sight
of the physical. When later on we lose the astral bodies in turn, and live in
the causal body, we are then conscious of the causal part of our world, and
would altogether lose sight of both the astral and the physical.4 Our magma
bodies can only construct a world based on the frequencies it can receive.
Equivalence of Universes of Different Dimensions
Recently, scientists have found that two very different theories which are
constructed using different numbers of space dimensions can be equivalent.
Juan Maldacena first conjectured such a relation in 1997 for a 5 dimensional
universe. It was later confirmed for many other universes with different
numbers of dimensions by Edward Witten of the Institute for Advanced
Study in Princeton, N J, and Steven Gubser, Igor Klebanov and Alexander
Polyakov of Princeton University. Examples of this correspondence are now
known for universes with a variety of dimensions.5
Jacob Bekenstein, a brilliant physicist, says that ‘creatures living in one
of these universes would be incapable of determining if they inhabited a
5d universe described by string theory or a 4d one described by a quantum
field theory of point particles.’ Bekenstein, however, believes that the
structures of their brains might give them an overwhelming prejudice in
favor of one description or another, in just the way that our brains construct
magm a bo dies in a mu lti -dim ensio nal mu ltiv erse | Chapter 7
an innate perception that our universe has three spatial dimensions.6 The
recent scientific findings provides a theoretical validation for a multidimensional
multiverse, which appears as a 3d physical universe, a 4d astral universe
or a 5d causal universe depending on which body’s sensory systems
and brain are being used.
Stuck Inside these Four Walls
In the last few years physicists have also realised that different Superstring
theories are in fact limiting cases of a single, more powerful theory – know
as ‘M Theory.’ According to M Theory, we live in a higher dimensional universe
but are trapped within a lower dimensional ‘membrane’ (or ‘brane,’
for short). As a result, we are blocked-off from the rest of the multiverse.
We interact with the rest of the multiverse mainly through the combined
gravitational fields of all the universes or the multiverse.7
Physicists have spent a lot of time in the twentieth century trying to
‘compactify’ and ‘curl-up’ extra dimensions that we do not experience ever
since the first powerful theory with more than 3 space dimensions was
put forward early in the twentieth century – the Kaluza-Klein theory. Now,
under M-theory, we are finally told by scientists that the reason why we do
not perceive these dimensions is that we simply cannot see or measure them
using our current scientific instruments. We do not interact with these extra
dimensions. Perhaps, we are coming closer to a plausible explanation – an
explanation which has been repeated many times by metaphysicists in the
past. Many physicists generally take the view that the mathematics and
physics has to be modified to conform to our experience. They rarely say
that it is our experience that is limited by our sensory and scientific apparatus.
Nevertheless, a change in mindset will inevitably take place within
this century.
The physical-etheric universe, recognised by metaphysicists, is a 3-
brane universe which is ‘less than a millimetre’ from our ‘home’ brane.
Leadbeater described in the early 1900s of an astral universe which had 4
space dimensions. He said in 1904 that there are many characteristics of
the astral world which agree with remarkable exactitude with a world of
four (space) dimensions. He also said around 1910, ‘Our minds can grasp
three (space) dimensions only, whereas there are four (space) dimensions
on the astral plane, and five on the lower causal plane.’8 He also gave many
details about these branes (or ‘planes’ in the metaphysical literature) in his
various books, which are now considered classics. In terms of mainstream
physics, under M theory, we would say that the spacetime signature of the
astral brane is 4s-1t (i.e. 4 space and 1 time dimensions). In other words it is
an ‘astral 4-brane.’ The causal brane is 5s-1t. In other words, it is a ‘causal
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
5-brane.’ We can observe the effects of gravitational fields emanating from
the astral and causal universe in our universe. They shape and structure
our universe – an observation often noted in the metaphysical literature.
According to ‘M theory’ the standard particles, of which we are familiar,
are confined to our universe. All ordinary matter and energy must ‘stick’ to
the surface of our 3-brane universe – like strings that need to be anchored to
a surface. And we couldn’t explore the extra dimensions because ordinary
matter and light were not allowed to go there. Our light, radio waves, magnetism,
quarks, electrons, all operate only on the 3-brane. Gravity, though,
can propagate as loops of string that don’t need a surface to stick to. So
gravity can explore the extra-dimensional space.9 Super particles dominate
other branes. Dark matter is the super matter of other branes that are invisible
to most of us.
This observation accords well with metaphysical evidence. The super
etheric, astral and causal particles are confined to their own universes.
Nevertheless, it has been acknowledged by metaphysicists that astral matter,
just like physical matter, is subject to gravitation. It is also in accordance
with metaphysical evidence that we cannot experience extra dimensions
unless we use a body composed of the relevant super particles and exercise
the sensory systems associated with that body. Different bodies will enable
the perception of light of different frequencies and particles of different
sizes. Tom Siegfried says that physicists slowly began to realise that extra
dimensions are invisible because our ‘light can’t go there.’ We wouldn’t be
able to see them even if they were big.10 Many near-death experiencers and
persons undergoing mystical visions have confirmed that the light is different
in these different universes.
Nature of Light in Super Magma Universes
Raymond Moody says in his best-selling book, ‘Life after Life,’ that neardeath
experiencers describe the light during their experiences as being
much brighter than anything experienced on Earth. But still, despite its
brilliant intensity, it doesn’t hurt the eyes.11 John Cramer says that our universe
could, without our knowledge, be superimposed on another ‘shadow’
universe which has its own light and matter and even stars and planets
and animal life which do not interact with ours except through their common
gravitational attraction.12 John Schwarz says that shadow matter would
be essentially invisible to us because it wouldn’t interact with the kind of
light that we are able to detect. However, it does interact with our gravity
– it shares our gravity. We would notice it through its gravitational effects
although we couldn’t see it with (our) light.13
magm a bo dies in a mu lti -dim ensio nal mu ltiv erse | Chapter 7
Super Light
Dark-light or super-light is the counterpart of the light that we are familiar
with – composed of super-photons. The existence of these types of subtle
light has been recorded in religious and metaphysical literature over the
centuries. Hundreds of references to this unusual light can be found in
literature relating to near-death experiences and mystical visions; in the
Bible and other scriptures. Each plane and sphere would have its own kind
of light. The speed of each type of light particle may be different. It is postulated
that the speed of light in each super universe is successively higher
(relative to ours). It will set the speed limit for that universe and will be the
same for all observers in that universe.
A photon in the astral universe may, therefore, behave as a tachyon
from the perspective of our universe. (Tachyons are particles that move
faster than the speed of light in our physical universe.) Since the energy and
frequency of these tachyons are well beyond anything that our scientific
instruments can now measure; even Cerenkov radiation, which would normally
be given out if we assumed a tachyon with the same energy as a standard
photon, would not be generated. It would pass through our universe as
dark matter particles would.

Conscious Particles within
Magma Bodies
In some strange way an electron or a photon [or any other
elementary particle] seems to ‘know’ about changes in the
environment and appears to respond accordingly.
Danah Zohar, Physicist 1
A group at the Weizmann Institute in Israel has done a variation of the famous
‘double-slit’ experiment. Instead of using photons as in the earlier experiments,
they used electrons and observed how the resultant interference pattern
(which indicates wave-like properties of the particle) dissipates the more
you watch the electrons as they go through the slits. As a wave the electron
passes through both channels simultaneously; but if according to E Buks it
‘senses’ that it is being watched, the electron (as a particle) goes through only
one path, diminishing the interference pattern.2
Elementary particles (such as photons and electrons) appear to possess
a certain degree of ‘intelligence.’ Consciousness (which is associated
with mind) appears to be as fundamental a property to elementary particles
as properties that make it ‘matter’ or a ‘physical force’ (for example, mass,
spin and charge). It is probable that different particles, however, have different
degrees of consciousness – just as mass, spin and charge differ from one
co nscious partic les withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 8
particle to another. It logically follows that bodies composed of different
types of particles would possess different degrees of consciousness.
Frequency and Consciousness
As we move up super universes, the mass, energy and frequency of particles
increases. So does the mind-like quality of particles. Barbara Brennan says
that the universal energy field is always associated with some form of consciousness,
ranging from highly developed to very primitive. The highly
developed consciousness is associated with ‘higher vibrations’ (i.e. higher
frequency) and energy levels.3 Hence, we would expect the intrinsic degree
of a single particle’s consciousness to be higher, the higher the frequency.
Arthur Powell reports, from various sources, that the vibrations (i.e. the
frequency) of lower causal matter are as much more rapid than physical
vibrations as vibrations of light are more rapid than those of sound.4 Lower
causal matter moves with thought. Astral matter moves so quickly after
thought that the ordinary observer can scarcely note any difference; etheric
matter does not obey thought as rapidly as does astral matter.5 In other
words, the more ‘subtle’ the matter, the more ‘mind-like’ it is.
In some sense a rudimentary mind-like quality is present even
at the level of particle physics. As we go to subtler levels this
mind-like quality becomes stronger and more developed.
David Bohm, Physicist 6
The journey to microscopic realms in our universe is similar to the
journey to higher energy (subtler) universes and particles in each successive
higher-frequency universe are expected to have a higher degree of
intrinsic consciousness. A single particle, when isolated does have some
degree of consciousness. However, low-frequency elementary particles
easily lose their consciousness when they become entangled with other
particles and decoherence sets-in. A state of an extremely low degree of
consciousness (for practical purposes – no consciousness) is exhibited by
inanimate matter in a classical universe like our low frequency physical
universe. However, when disentangled and isolated, particles regain their
intrinsic consciousness.
Quantum Coherence and Consciousness
When quantum coherence is increased (for example, when certain events
such as Bose-Einstein condensations take place or when quarks within a
Q-ball fall into the same quantum state) groups of particles behave like
single isolated particles or super particles – exhibiting the relevant degree
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
of consciousness associated with that super particle (condensate or Q-ball).
Hence, if a group of low frequency particles fall into the same quantum
state, a low degree of consciousness is exhibited. Conversely, if a group of
high frequency particles fall into the same quantum state, a high degree of
consciousness is exhibited. A Q-ball of etheric particles which are in the
same quantum state will be less conscious than a Q-ball of astral particles.
As an analogy, we can consider that the atoms in a bar of iron are each
a magnet. However, if they are not aligned among themselves within the
bar of iron, no magnetism is felt. It is only when all the atoms in the bar are
aligned that magnetism and a magnetic field manifests in the bar of iron.
Hence, the inherent magnetic fields of the atoms apparently disappear when
misaligned and manifest when aligned. Similarly, consciousness manifests
more strongly when particles fall into the same quantum state – either in
condensates or Q-balls. Danah Zohar says there is no reason to deny that
any structure – biological or otherwise, that contained a (Bose-Einstein)
condensate might possess the capacity for consciousness.7
Hence, elementary particles will exhibit their intrinsic degree of consciousness
when isolated or when a group of particles share the same quantum
state. This means that bulk matter in a non-coherent state is effectively
Electromagnetism and Collective Behavior in Plasma
Super plasma, which are in fact soups of super particles held together by
electromagnetic forces, exhibit collective behavior similar to living flocks of
birds or schools of fish. This type of collective behavior is often described as
‘swarm behavior.’ As we move up to higher energy universes, the distinction
between animate and inanimate also becomes increasingly meaningless.
(For this reason, magma which is organised into life-forms is not described
as ‘biomagma’ in this book. The prefix ‘bio’ is considered superfluous.)
A type of swarm behavior has been noted by Leadbeater. He observed
floating masses of astral matter which were not properly organised into
bodies and described their behavior as ‘semi-intelligent.’8 It is quite appropriate
for Leadbeater to call this type of behavior semi-intelligent – it
is similar to the behavior exhibited by a computer-generated ‘cellular automaton.’
A cellular automaton can be generated in a computer and consists
of a collection of units called cells, each of which can be in one of
several states. Over time the cells change their states according to simple
rules that depend on their states and those of the neighbouring cells. Even
though each cell is influenced only by nearby cells, complicated global
patterns can emerge. Just which local rules give rise to specific global patterns
is a puzzle to scientists. Nevertheless, they give rise to group behavco
nscious partic les withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 8
ior which resembles groups of life-forms.9
Responsiveness to Thoughts
Coherence increases in higher-energy universes due to the effects of strong
electromagnetic forces within magma and the fact that quarks in Q-balls
frequently fall into the same quantum state. Furthermore, depending on
the phase relationship, Q-balls fuse to become larger Q-balls.10 Hence,
these universes, with higher frequency particles and greater coherence,
would appear to be more ‘conscious’ then our present one – reacting to our
thoughts and emotions more rapidly.
In advanced higher energy super universes everything is conscious
– making these universes seem like ‘one big mind’ to the visitor. The
distinction between our private bodies and the public universe peters out;
the boundary between the observer and the observed gradually evaporates;
the boundary between the private world of the personality and the universe
melts away; the distinction between an object and its universe melts. It
logically follows that the feeling of interconnectedness and participation
would increase as we move higher up on the multiverse’s energy ladder.
The individual’s mind-matter merges with an ocean of mind-matter. At
some point, there would be only mind (or consciousness, or information).
In this state it would appear as a yogi might say: ‘All are consciousness or
ideas’ – there would be no separate ‘things’ since there is an extremely high
degree of interconnectedness. Paramahansa Yogananda says that a causal
bodied being remains in the blissful realm of ‘ideas’ in the high frequency
causal universe.11 At some point in the higher causal universe, therefore, it
would be meaningless to talk of ‘personal bodies’ which are separate from
universes. Visitors to any of these universes get the impression that the
universe is a ‘subjective’ rather than an ‘objective’ one – feeling like one big
Self. In these ‘conscious universes’ all matter is animated. The environment
becomes less and less differentiated from the mind of an individual.
The inside and the outside merge as in the internal and external surfaces
of a Klein bottle or a Möbius strip.
The thoughts of an observer easily mould the surrounding matter to
a greater degree than in our universe. The observer cannot detach himself
from what is being observed because he actively moulds his macroscopic
environment and his own body quite quickly and in dramatic ways – giving
rise to the phenomena of ‘shape-shifting.’ An interesting account of this
animated matter is given by Leadbeater. He reports that there is a vast store
of ‘elemental essence’ in the astral plane or sphere, extremely sensitive to
the most fleeting human thought, responding with inconceivable delicacy,
in an infinitesimal fraction of a second, to a vibration set up in it by an
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
entirely unconscious exercise of human will or desire. Our thoughts mould
them into living forces or ‘elementals’ – as is known in the metaphysical
literature. Their separate existence, however, is usually evanescent, for as
soon as the thought impulse has worked itself out, it sinks back into the
undifferentiated mass of elemental essence from which it came.
According to Leadbeater, a visitor to the astral world will be impressed
by the ceaseless tide of this elemental essence, swirling around him and
often menacing, but withdrawing before a determined effort of the will.
An enormous army of entities are temporarily called out of this ocean into
separate existence by our thoughts and feelings, whether good or evil. The
elemental essence has no definite form when not affected by any outside
influence. However, on the slightest disturbance, it flashes into a bewildering
confusion of restless, ever-changing shapes, which form, rush about,
and disappear with the rapidity of bubbles on the surface of boiling water.
The evanescent shapes, though generally of living creatures do not express
the existence of separate entities. They merely express the thought-stream
which calls them into existence, though nearly always with some grotesque
distortions, some terrifying or unpleasant aspect about them.12
David Bohm, a leading expert in twentieth century plasma physics,
observed a similar behavior in his experience with one component nonneutral
plasmas of electrons. In his experiments, he found to his amazement
that once they were in plasma, electrons stopped behaving like individuals
and started behaving as if they were a part of a larger and interconnected
whole. Although the individual movements appeared random, vast numbers
of electrons were able to produce effects that were surprisingly wellorganised
and appeared to behave like a life form. The plasma constantly
regenerated itself and enclosed all impurities in a wall in the same way that
a biological organism, like the unicellular amoeba, might encase a foreign
substance in a cyst. So struck was Bohm by these organic qualities that he
later remarked that he frequently had the impression that the electron sea
was ‘alive’ and that plasma possesses some of the traits of living things.13
Matter is also responsive to thoughts in our universe, although it is less
noticeable because elementary particles associated with our universe have
a lower degree of consciousness, which is easily cancelled-out by the high
degree of decoherence in our universe.
Respected scientific experiments in parapsychology using random
number generators have been conducted which show that there is a slight
distortion in the results due to the impact of thought in the physical universe.
In experiments with quantum objects – such as photons and electrons, the
impact of consciousness can be observed, for example, in the already cited
‘double-slit experiments.’ An electron wave manifests as a particle when it is
co nscious partic les withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 8
observed. Fred Alan Wolf says that quantum physics appears to be telling us
that what we choose to observe alters, and even creates, what we observe.14
In the physical universe, this is not obvious. However, in the super
astral and causal universes, the results can be dramatic. An experiment can
be conducted to test the impact of mind even in the physical universe. For
example, a group of experienced meditators can focus on the experimental
setup in the double-slit experiment to, say, change the spin or mass of a
particle – creating a new particle. As we move up to higher energy and higher
frequency universes, universes become less matter-like and more mind-like,
less classical and more quantum-like. Paramahansa Yogananda states that
the difference between consciousness and matter is the rate of vibration
(or frequency).15 In higher energy and higher frequency super universes,
macroscopic quantum-like behavior is observed. ‘Shape-shifting’ occurs in
a more dramatic fashion and the ‘concrete reality’ we are accustomed to
would be rare.
Role of Conscious Particles in Super Magma Bodies
Specific Particles support Specific Mental and Emotional States
As described frequently in the metaphysical literature, each succeeding
body consists of more energetic particles than the previous body and pulsates
at a higher frequency. In order to experience certain mental states or
emotions we need specific particles in our magma bodies to be in specific
states (whether liquid or solid-crystal). This is analogous to the operation
of mood-generating neurotransmitters (such as dopamine and serotonin) in
our physical-biomolecular (or biochemical) bodies, which work in concert
with our magma bodies.
I will not know that you are angry with me unless you show
your anger. But you know it well in advance – you can feel it
rising in your etheric body. Now this anger that has arisen
has its own particles that come from the etheric body. If these
particles do not come you cannot be angry.
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh 16
Tibetan Yoga teaches the same. The concept of ‘minds’ and ‘winds’
apply in Tibetan Yoga. According to the teachings, as reported by Daniel
Cozort, minds are inoperative without winds and winds lack specific
direction without minds. Because winds are the medium for the operations
of minds, fluctuation in the winds necessarily affects consciousness. The
cessation of winds causes the cessation of the minds that rely on them.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Thus, as the coarser winds cease, so do the coarser types of minds, leaving
only subtle winds and minds.17 These ‘winds’ are plasma winds (like the
Sun’s solar wind) but not of standard but super particles, within meridians
or channels. The ‘minds’ are particular mental and emotional states. The
types of winds (plasmas of different types of particles) determine the types
of minds (mental and emotional states).
Body Composition and Karma
Every mental or emotional state is associated with specific states and particles
or combinations of particles which enables the entity to experience
the relevant subjective states. This would then mean that the composition
of dark bodies from one entity to another would differ depending on what
emotional or mental states he or she is generally occupied with. If a person
is generally angry, those particles and state of matter that facilitated the
experience of anger may dominate the composition and state of the relevant
super magma body. If the person is preoccupied with sexual thoughts, the
relevant particles associated with sexual moods would dominate the composition
of the relevant body. Similarly – with other mental and emotional
states. These may include jealousy, greed, fear, love etc.
There is some metaphysical evidence that emotions that are coupled
with sensations in the lower energy biomolecular body – for example sexual
emotions and anger – attract lower energy particles which pack more densely
together in the astral body – just as they do in the biomolecular body. Hence,
a preoccupation with these types of emotions tends to produce a denser
astral body which gravitates to the Earth. The higher density and greater
susceptibility to the gravitational force reduces mobility and produces the
sensation of being bound. This has often been portrayed as being in ‘chains,’
prisons and dungeons in religious literature.
Through wrong belief, indulgence, negligence, passions and
activities the individual self attracts particles of matter which
are fit to turn into karma, as the self is actuated by passions.
This influx of karma results in bondage.
Jain Scriptures 18
The particles that are attracted in response to specific mental and emotional
states finally make up the mass of the body. These super particles
are to the magma body what ‘cells’ are to the biomolecular body. The various
particles and states produce bodies which may vary in color, density,
size, brightness, contrast, definiteness (or sharpness) and other physical
attributes. It follows then, that certain mental and emotional states may be
co nscious partic les withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 8
associated with higher energy bodies and others with lower energy bodies
– each body associated with different types of particles. Hence, although
mental states may be subjective, there are (relatively) objective correlates.
This is no different from the changing colors in the images (which evidence
neuronal activities) generated by a CAT scan of the brain while some subjective
mental activity is going on. Each body is, therefore, the most concrete
expression of what (Eastern) religious scriptures normally call ‘karma.’
How the various bodies interact with the various environments will result
in the final outcomes.
Mahavir (the founder of Jainism, who lived during the same period as
Siddhartha Gautama) has even defined karmas as material. If you are angry
and you kill someone, it is an action of anger and murder. 2,500 years ago,
Mahavir said that the subtle atoms of these actions cling to you as the scum
of karmas and actions. Your actions ‘hold you like matter.’19
‘Manipulating Karma’
If our super magma bodies are in fact expressions of karma, it would make
sense to look after their health and composition – just as we look after our
biomolecular bodies. Eating fatty foods with high salt content can lead to
heart diseases, strokes, high blood pressure and other ‘lifestyle diseases.’
These diseases cause profound suffering even while our locus of awareness
is in our biomolecular body. Similarly, attracting high density astral matter
can lead to suffering in the astral world (the world most human beings find
themselves in after the death of their physical bodies). Looking after our
magma bodies to that extent determines our future health and ‘wellness’ in
super universes. This insight that material particles determine karma has
profound consequences. To some extent, this means karma can be physically
or mentally manipulated.
Michael Talbot reports that the Sufis believe imagination has a
potent effect on the health and physical structure of our bodies. They
also believe that one could use visualisation, in a process called ‘creative
prayer,’ to alter and reshape the very fabric of one’s destiny.20 No doubt
they were using their imagination and visualisations to change the content
of their memories to holographically restructure their invisible bodies.
Swinney concludes that it is our ‘holographic perception’ that influences
the dynamics of our brain’s and body’s chemistry, our self-hologram. In
this perceptual hologram, he says, resides the fundamental basis of our
structure and our sense of self and external environment, including our
health and illness in both our physiological and psychological being. It
is here, at this level of our being that fundamental healing and physicalpsychic
restructuring occurs.21 The same kind of restructuring may also

take place during near-death experiences.
Distributed Sensory Systems in Magma Bodies
The particles of the astral body in its liquid state are constantly in motion
among themselves, like particles of flowing water. According to Leadbeater,
it is quite impossible, therefore, for the astral body to possess specialized
organs in the same sense as the physical body. The structure (morphology)
may be deceptively similar, but the functions (physiology) are quite different
since the electromagnetic super magma bodies operate using electromagnetism
rather than biochemistry. Leadbeater argues that no doubt there
is an exact counterpart in astral matter of the rods and cones which make
up the retina of the biological eye; but the astral particles in which at one
moment are occupying that particular position in the astral body may, a
second or two later, be moving through the hands or the foot.
In the astral universe, we do not see by means of the astral counterpart
of the physical eyes, nor do we hear with the astral counterpart of the physical
ears. To be exact, it is not correct to apply the terms ‘seeing’ or ‘hearing’
to astral senses, since these terms are usually held to imply specialized
sense-organs. What has been observed by Leadbeater is that every particle
in the astral body is capable of receiving or transmitting vibrations from one
of its own type, but its own type only. When a person activates the astral
senses he may sometimes be surprised to see on all sides simultaneously,
instead of only the front.22
Barbara Brennan reports detailed structures corresponding to the
physical-biomolecular body in super magma bodies – in addition to structures,
such as chakras, found only in super magma bodies.23 Nevertheless,
the general correspondence of the astral body to the physical is merely
superficial and a matter of external form, and does not at all involve any
similarity of function in the various internal organs. The biomolecular and
magma bodies are composed of very different types of matter. Kidneys and
lungs make sense in a biomolecular body – not in an electromagnetic body.
According to Brennan, the astral body in its liquid state appears as colored
clouds of fine substance in continual fluid motion. According to Leadbeater,
all the particles of the astral body are constantly flowing and swirling about
like those of boiling water, all of them in turn pass through each chakra, so
that each centre in its turn evokes in the particles the power of receptivity
to a certain set of vibrations or the ability to tune into certain frequencies.24
(Chakras are vortexes in magma bodies, which will be discussed in the next
This is similar to what happens in the biomolecular body. The subjective
state of vision – for example ‘seeing red’ or ‘seeing blue’ can only take
co nscious partic les withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 8
place if the relevant cone cells exist on the retina of the eye of the biomolecular
body. The different cells respond to different frequencies of light in
the environment just as particles in magma bodies do. Different sensory
systems in the biomolecular body respond to different frequencies – the eyes
respond to much higher frequencies than the ears. Furthermore, all the
sensory systems in the biomolecular body translate chemical stimuli into
electro-chemical signals which is received and interpreted by the brain. The
underlying sensory system in the biomolecular body is therefore an electrochemical
one. Hence, while there are differences, there are also many similarities
between the sensory systems in the biomolecular and super magma
Recent scientific evidence shows that all the sensory systems in the
biomolecular body operate as frequency analyzers. Various researchers
contacted the renowned neurosurgeon Karl Pribram to tell him that they
had uncovered evidence that the visual system worked as a kind of frequency
analyzer. Herman von Helmholtz had shown that the ear was a
frequency analyzer. More recent research revealed that our sense of smell
seems to be based on what are called osmic frequencies. Single neurons in
the motor cortex of the brain respond selectively to a limited bandwidth of
frequencies.25 Pribram confirmed that the visual cortex of cats and monkeys
responded to a limited range of frequencies.26 Russell DeValois and his colleagues
also showed that the receptive fields in the neurons of the cortex
were tuned to a very small range of frequencies. In his studies of both cats
and humans, Campbell (at Cambridge) also demonstrated that neurons in
the brain responded to a limited band of frequencies.
As the particles (which are tuned to different frequencies) are moving
all the time in the astral body, all the astral senses are active equally in all
parts of the body. Particles in every part of the astral body are capable of
responding to stimuli in the ionised environment. Consequently, the astral
being can see equally well the objects behind him, above him, and beneath
him, without needing to turn his head. There appears to be no specialized
or centralized sensory organs in the astral body.
Paramahansa Yogananda says that astral beings have all the outer sensory
organs – ears, eyes, nose, tongue and skin – but they employ the ‘intuitional
sense’ to experience sensations through any part of the body; they
can see through the ear, or nose, or skin. They are able to hear through
the eyes or tongue, and can taste through the ears or skin, and so forth.27
Michael Talbot reports that twelfth-century Persian Sufis employed deep
trancelike meditation to visit the ‘land where spirits dwell.’ They claimed
that in this other realm one possesses a ‘subtle body’ and relies on senses
that are not always associated with ‘specific organs’ in that body. Also, like
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
(Robert) Monroe, some near-death experiencers report being able to see in
all directions at once, while in the ‘disembodied’ state – a ‘three hundred
and sixty degree’ vision.28
Leadbeater reiterates that although there are counterparts of the eyes,
the nose and the mouth observed by various metaphysicists, the astral being
does not see with those eyes, hear with those ears, smell with the nose or
taste with the tongue. All the particles of the astral body are in constant and
rapid motion – moving from one part of the body to another. The senses of
the astral body do not act through special organs, but through every particle
of the body. But every particle is not capable of receiving every possible
impression. Different types of particles receive different frequencies.29 The
sensory systems in the causal bodies are similar to the astral bodies but are
tuned to higher frequencies.
Particle Memory
Memory Capacity of an Atom
In 1959, physicist Richard Feynman pointed out that all the words written
throughout the history of the world could be contained in a cube of material
one tenth of a millimetre wide – provided those words were written with
atoms. Now, scientists have done just that, creating an atomic-scale memory
by using atoms of silicon in place of the 1s and 0s that computers use to
store data. Scientists at the University of Wisconsin at Madison have been
able to read and write at room temperature to a memory that uses a single
atom to store a bit. An intriguing aspect of this work is that memory density
is comparable to the way nature stores data in DNA molecules.30, 31
How much information can an atom store? Scientists have written
the word ‘OPTICS’ on a single atom, demonstrating the huge information
capacity that exists even in an individual hydrogen atom. This was done
by sending one of its electrons into a ‘Rydberg state,’ in which it no longer
exists as a cloud of charge enshrouding the nucleus but instead becomes a
‘wave packet’ that circles the atomic nucleus like a planet around the Sun.
Applying a series of pulses a set of wave packets can be created that
combine with each other like water waves and cancel each other out at specific
places to form patterns around the atom, such as the word ‘OPTICS,’
in which points on each letter correspond to possible places for finding the
electron after measurement. Carlos Stroud of the University of Rochester
and Michael Noel of the University of Virginia point out that an electron
in an n=50 Rydberg state has 2,500 possible states of angular momentum
which can be combined in many ways. This evidences the enormous potential
for even elementary particles to store and transport vast amounts of
co nscious partic les withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 8
Memory-Identity Particles in Super Magma Bodies
Each super magma body has a nucleus in its ovoid body – which Leadbeater
and Besant call ‘permanent particles.’ Leadbeater calls the nucleus of the
higher etheric double a ‘physical-etheric atom,’ the astral body the ‘astral
atom’; and a ‘mental molecule’ in the causal body. Information about the
relevant magma body (its composition, frequency and structure) and its
experiences in the corresponding universe are stored or are linked to these
nuclei – according to Leadbeater and Besant.33 It is remarkable that Leadbeater
and Besant could conceive of a particle having the ability to store
or link up with vast amounts of information in 1910. David Bohm himself
hinted at this only recently. He says that ‘a particle has a rich and complex
inner structure which can respond to information and direct its self-motion
These nuclei in super magma bodies are analogous to DNA in the biomolecular
body – which is sometimes called a ‘bioparticle’ in the medical
literature; as it stores or links vast amounts of information about a particular
life-form. The nuclei are transferred to higher energy bodies when
lower energy bodies die – serving the same purposes as a ‘black box’ flight
recorder in an airplane in preserving information about a particular life’s
journey. Hindu metaphysics describes these nuclei as ‘bindus.’ According to
Besant, the permanent particles are used to preserve within themselves as
‘powers of vibrations’ (i.e. different frequencies and waveforms) the results
of all experiences through which they have passed. At the end of the life
of the physical body, the physical-etheric permanent particle would have
stored up ‘innumerable powers of vibration’ (i.e. a set of waveforms of different
frequencies). The same process takes place in the case of the permanent
particles of each of the other bodies.35 As the particles (in super magma
bodies) receive different frequencies, records are formed.
Can a person’s memory with all its visual, audio, tactile and other information
be conveyed in a wave-particle? It is remarkable that however complicated
a wave, it can be described as a combination of many simple sine waves
of various frequencies and amplitudes. This is how an entire orchestra can
be heard from the single vibrating cone of a loud speaker. When switched
on and off at irregular intervals, or modulated in intensity or in frequency,
waves can carry a large amount of information. The higher the frequency
the greater the amount of information the wave may encode. The tinier the
detail to be seen, the higher the frequency required. Storing memory in
wave interference patterns is remarkably efficient, and would account for
the vastness of human memory. Waves can hold unimaginable quantities
of data. With holographic encoding of wave-interference patterns, all of the
US Library of Congress, which contains virtually every book ever written
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
in English, would fit onto a large sugar cube. This suggests that the nuclei
of the various magma bodies can carry complex holographic information
about their corresponding bodies.
The idea that a three-dimensional form can be translated into
a specific complex waveform has already been demonstrated
by Hans Jenny. Once this is accepted then the concept of
image transmission is possible.
Harry Oldfield and Roger Coghill 36
A personality is simply a ‘packet of self-organised information.’ If this
information can be transferred from one vehicle to another that personality
‘lives’ on. Information is stored in the nuclei of the various magma bodies.
If a digital computer can store information with nothing more than ‘1’s
and ‘0’s; particles with spin, mass and charge should be able to store much
more information. If information is stored in the physical-etheric nucleus,
the personality which was manifested in the physical universe would survive
the death of the physical bodies. The physical-etheric nucleus enables
the transfer of information from one body to another during the (physical)
death process. If not for this transfer, the experiences in the physical-etheric
plane may be difficult to access. The information about our self has to be
‘uploaded’ to another ‘player’ (i.e. body) to continue our personal existence.
Akashic Records and the Zero Point Field
According to Lynne McTaggart, if all subatomic matter in the universe is
interacting constantly with the ambient ground-state ‘zero energy field’;
then we have to conclude that the subatomic waves of the quantum ‘zero
point field’ are constantly imprinting a record of the shape of everything. As
the harbinger and imprinter of all wavelengths and all frequencies, the field
is a kind of shadow of the universe for all time, a mirror image and record
of everything that ever was.37 As was so often the case, Leadbeater had this
idea much earlier. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he said determinedly,
‘Every particle bears within it the impress of everything that has
occurred in its neighbourhood. There is an affinity between any particle of
matter and the record which contains its history. This affinity enables it to
act as a kind of conductor between the record and the faculties of anyone
who can read it.’38
Records imprinted on the zero point field are usually called the
‘Akashic’ records by metaphysicists. Edgar Cayce, the clairvoyant, said the
Akashic Records were ‘to the mental world as the cinema is to the physical
world.’ According to Leadbeater, if an observer is not focusing on them, the
co nscious partic les withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 8
records simply form the background to whatever is going on. Under such
conditions they merely reflect the mental activity of a greater consciousness
on a far higher plane – which is accessible to us. We are in a sense living in
a much larger ‘brain.’ It would be like watching a movie from a distance. As
you move closer and focus on what is going on in a particular scene you are
immediately in the scene, surrounded by all the characters.39
The characters of course cannot see you. Neither can you change anything
in the scene. You are merely an observer. In this way, causality cannot
be violated. For example, you cannot get into the scene and kill your own
grandfather so that you do not exist in the present. What you are seeing is
in the past – and sometimes in the future (our past or future is relative to our
frame of reference). Nevertheless, the rate at which ‘the story unfolds’ can
be altered. Many meditators use the records for a practical reason: to review
their own current and past lives to ensure that their personal objectives are
met. Leadbeater however warns that the Akashic records must not be confused
with mere man-made thought-forms, which exist in abundance in the
astral and causal magmaspheres. He also warns that the body used to view
these records can have a profound effect on its reliability. This is because
these records are reflected from higher energy planes. If the view is from a
body in a lower plane, for example, the astral body, the view could be less
reliable than, say, from the causal body.40
Non-Local Memory
Leadbeater also said around 1910 that the physical-etheric nucleus establishes
a connection with our biomolecular brain cells, by means of which
our mind is put ‘en rapport’ with particular portions of the Akashic records.
The scenes which we pass through in the course of our life are captured and
form part of the Akashic Records.41 In other words, memory is not located in
the brain. The brain simply acts as a receiver and transmitter of memories
embedded in the zero point field. Arthur Powell reports that the permanent
particles are ‘merely nuclei which enable a Higher Self, through his
“ray,” to come into touch with the various planes’42 – the ray acting much like
the laser beam in a disc player which accesses different tracks on a digital
video disc (each particle being analogous to a different track). When Wilder
Penfield tapped on the neurons of his patient’s brains, generating a holographic
memory, as was reported in various places 43, he was accessing the
Akashic records (via higher energy bodies) embedded in the zero point field.
The Akashic records were, in a sense, ‘hyperlinked’ to the brain and could
be accessed by ‘mouse-clicking’ on specific neurons (analogous to specific
‘icons’ on your Windows-based computer system).

Structures within Magma Bodies
Many of the structures found in magnetic plasma – as recorded in the scientific
literature on plasma physics – have been observed by experimental metaphysicists
– including Annie Besant, Charles Leadbeater, Barbara Brennan, Valerie
Hunt and many others. Of course, some are also recorded in traditional scriptures
and commentaries.
It should not be surprising that there could be elaborate and intricate
structures in super magma bodies. Even in the low-energy biomolecular body,
we have the heart (which is a sophisticated pump), a brain (which works somewhat
like a highly advanced computer) and kidneys (which are sophisticated
filters). Elaborate mechanical and biochemical processes abound in the biomolecular
body. In the electromagnetic super magma bodies, we should not be
surprised, therefore, to find elaborate electromagnetic structures – electrical
circuits, magnetic fields and assemblies, dynamos, motors, turbines, lenses
controlled by magnetic fields, electronic and photonic filters; and other highly
sophisticated devices.
Magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) in Magma Bodies
MHD studies the dynamics of fluids that conduct electricity – including
their motions and interactions with magnetic fields. Examples of such fluids
include plasma and liquid metals. The fluid outer core of the Earth is a huge
MHD dynamo that generates the Earth’s magnetic field through the motion
st ructu res withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 9
of charged particles in the molten rock. The magnetic fields of some planets
and all stars are believed to be caused by fluid motion. Similarly, the
magnetic field generated by a magma body is caused by the fluid motion of
electrically charged particles in liquid bodies or in meridians in crystalline
bodies. The motion generates a magnetic field, which confines the plasma,
and a web of magnetic field lines which guides plasma flows.
The Web in Physics
Universal Filaments
According to plasma cosmology (pioneered by Nobel laureate Hannes
Alfvén and Kristian Birkeland) as discussed earlier (in Chapter 3) electric
currents carried in interstellar and intergalactic plasma give rise to the
large-scale structure of the universe, including walls, sheets and filaments.
According to Anthony Peratt, a variety of phenomena in the Cosmos can be
explained in terms of a spaghetti of ‘Birkeland currents’ (electrical currents
flowing along magnetic lines of force) and that ‘pinched’ Birkeland currents
may be the mechanism for initiating gravitational collapse of matter
in the plasma state.1
How does the mind generate an electro-magnetic force to
circulate the electricity in the body?
Dr Yang Jwing-Ming 2
According to Alfvén, space is filled with a network of currents which
transfer energy and momentum over large distances. Plasma naturally forms
filaments in response to electric and magnetic fields. The charged particles
are guided by the magnetic fields and accelerated by the electric fields. The
filaments may ‘pinch’ (or converge) magnetically to form stars.3
Stuart Clark reported in the New Scientist journal that astronomers
have now detected a ‘universal web.’ Vast filaments of hot gas tracing the
web of dark matter that underpins the large-scale structure of the Universe
have been seen. Astronomers using NA SA’s X-ray satellite observatory,
Chandra, viewed the filaments stretching for millions of light years through
space, with one passing through our own galaxy. They calculate that the
filaments contain five times more mass than all the stars in the Universe.4
According to Robert Britt, studies show that both ordinary and dark matter
work in concert to build delicate filaments in space, with dense junctions
where galaxies cluster. The resulting structures, he says, look something
like spider webs.5 Klaus Dolag and colleagues report that, based on computer
simulations of magnetic fields in galaxy clusters, galaxy clusters
are embedded in large-scale spider-web-like structure of filaments. This
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
implies that the plasma streams primarily along such filaments, and thereby
orders the magnetic field largely frozen into it. Extensive galaxy surveys
have shown that structures resembling sheets and filaments characterise
galaxy distributions. This distribution resembles a complicated spider’s web
several hundred mega parsecs in diameter.6
Invisible Filaments
Astronomers say that the filamentary structures are so hot that it would
generally be invisible to optical, infrared, and radio telescopes.7 In other
words, they are by definition, dark matter. The filaments are detected only
because higher density matter tends to accumulate and condense in these
filaments. Radiation from this high density matter around the nearly invisible
cosmic filaments has been measured by scientists to confirm the existence
of these filaments in intergalactic space.
Confinement by Dark Matter
The filaments betray the presence of dark matter because the hot gas in
the filaments are thought to be confined by its gravitational influence.8
Gas at millions of degrees centigrade has a natural tendency to spread. To
find it confined into filaments means that a very strong gravitational field
must be pulling it into place. According to theory, only dark matter can do
the trick. Alan Heavens, a lead dark matter researcher at the University of
Edinburgh, says that the fine filamentary structure can only be explained
by highly collapsed filaments of dark matter.9 Michael Merrifield of the
University of Nottingham says that the large gravitational field generated
by the dark matter is acting like a cosmic pressure cooker, holding the gas
together.’10 The (dark) etheric body of the universe is keeping the filaments
of hot gas confined.
If these filaments are filaments of dark matter, it gives us further evidence
that dark matter is in fact in the form of magnetic plasma or magma.
Filaments are structural signatures of magnetic plasma (or magma).
The Web in Metaphysics
Filaments within Subtle Magma Bodies
It is a well accepted fact in metaphysics that there are filaments within our
subtle magma bodies, 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
st ructu res withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 9
the rest of the super magma body. These meridians are magnetic lines of
force, frozen into super magma bodies. The currents flowing through them
are Birkeland currents, as described in plasma cosmology.
The large scale structure of the universe, with a web of filaments punctuated
with rotating galaxies, is similar to the web of acupuncture meridians
or nadis punctuated with rotating chakras and acupoints which is found in
the etheric component of the physical body.
I envisioned hundreds of little DC [direct current] generators
like dark stars sending their electricity along the meridians,
an interior galaxy that the Chinese had somehow found and
explored by trial and error over two thousand years ago. It was
obvious that the acupuncture charts had an objective basis
in reality. Our readings indicated that these meridians were
conducting current.
Robert Becker, The Body Electric, 1985 11
Invisible Meridians in the Human Body
The meridian system, chartered by Chinese acupuncture, can be considered
the arterial system of the (lower energy) etheric double. These pathways
are ordinarily invisible to the biological eyes – just like the invisible
cosmic filaments. The filaments are detected mainly because they attract
higher density matter which generates detectable radiation. Radiation has
also been measured from meridians in the human etheric double.
French researcher Pierre de Vernejoul injected a radioactive substance
into the acupoints of patients and measured the radiation using a special
camera. He found that the substance migrated along classical Chinese acupuncture
meridian pathways. Injections were also made by Vernejoul into
random points of the body and into veins and lymphatic channels. These,
however, were unable to demonstrate similar results, suggesting that the
meridian system is a unique and separate network of pathways in the body.
Further experiments showed that terminating a meridian that related to the
liver resulted in a rapid degeneration of liver tissue. Without energy supply
from the etheric double via the meridians; tissues, organs and cells of the
biomolecular physical body do not appear to function properly.12
Plasma Flows in the Sun and in the Subtle Bodies
Scientists using the joint European Space Agency (ESA)/NA SA Solar and
Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft have discovered ‘jet streams’
or ‘rivers’ of hot, electrically charged plasma flowing beneath the surface
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
of the Sun. Our magma bodies, too, have hot, electrically charged plasma
flowing beneath the surface. The crystalline states (or structured levels) of
magma bodies consist of a light grid with plasmas of super particles flowing
through their meridians. The fluidic and unstructured states are composed
of super plasma in its liquid state which facilitates the generation and
expression of our emotions.
Barbara Brennan says that bioplasma flows along the lines of the structured
levels and correlates directly with our emotions. The combination
of a standing light grid with bioplasma flowing through, according to her,
holds the physical body together in its form, nurtures it with life energy,
and serves as a communication and integration system that keeps the body
functioning as a single organism.13
Many Yoga and Qigong practitioners have experienced movements of
super particles in a plasma state along their spines and meridians, beneath
the surface of their bodies, as a hot liquid. They are experiencing movements
of super plasma in their etheric double. ‘Kundalini’ is also a form of
super plasma – more dense than prana.
Leadbeater says, ‘The fiery power (of kundalini) is like liquid fire as it
rushes through the body when it has been aroused by the will.’ He also says,
‘The fire which comes from below is much more material, like the fire of
red-hot iron, of glowing metal.’14 ‘Much more material’ means that kundalini
has a higher density, compared to other types of super plasma.
SOHO also found features similar to trade winds that transport gas
beneath the Sun’s fiery surface. Plasma is often described as a gas. According
to Daniel Cozort, Tibetan Yoga teaches that ‘winds’ move in a system
of 72,000 subtle channels arrayed throughout the body. The right and left
channels wrap around (or pinch) the central channel at certain places, constricting
it such that the winds cannot pass through it. The central channel
has seven loci of constriction; they are called ‘channel-wheels’ because
many smaller channels branch out of them like the spokes of a wheel.15 Allan
Barton says we can visualise plasma as a gas-like state of matter, bright and
opaque because the particles are freely interacting with photons.16
Winds are basically movements of gases (making up what we call ‘air’).
Tibetan yoga relies heavily on the concept of winds flowing through channels.
This is analogous to the movement of hot gas along cosmic filaments,
described in plasma cosmology. The channels are meridians; the ‘channel-
wheels’ refer to the chakras, which form when the channels magnetically
pinch or converge. The dependence of mental and emotional states
(‘minds’) on super charged particles in low density plasma moving as
(Birkeland) currents (‘winds’) has already been discussed. Daniel Cozort
reports that the white and red drops, along with the winds and channels,
st ructu res withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 9
are an integral part of Tibetan yoga.
In Tibetan yoga, it is believed that both white and red drops are found
everywhere in all male and female bodies. The white drop predominates
at the top of the head and the red at the solar plexus.17 It is interesting to
note that plasma crystals can assume both liquid and crystalline states18 – in
other words they can be described as ‘plasma crystals’ or ‘plasma drops.’
These white and red drops can be interpreted to be plasma drops within
the channels.
Central Channels, Main Vertical Current
Gabriel Tellez, who conducted experiments on two-component plasmas,
subject to a gravitational field, observes that heavy charges accumulate at
the bottom of a container in the experiment while light particles accumulate
at the top. The suspension, he says, behaves like a condenser – and a vertical
electric field is induced into it, as a result.19 Let us consider a two component
plasma of positive and negative super particles in a colloidal medium in the
newly formed magma body. In the absence of any nearby electromagnetic
fields, the gravitational field’s influence will dominate. However, any nearby
electromagnetic fields – for example, the higher energy electromagnetic
bodies of the mother – will exert its influence as magma is highly responsive
to electromagnetic fields.
The (super) electromagnetic field of the newly formed magma ovoid
aligns itself with the mother’s interpenetrating (super) electromagnetic
fields. As noted previously, one of the characteristics of plasma is its
tendency to separate and form boundaries between plasma of different
properties.20 Similarly, the positive and negative super particles absorbed
into the growing magma ovoid separate according to the universal density
profile of dark matter (as discussed in Chapter 4); with density rapidly
increasing towards the centre. In accordance with the cold dark matter
model, it takes on the shape of an ovoid. Dense kundalini settles in at the
centre of the ovoid (around the base of the spine) while prana (of opposite
polarity) accumulate at the top and bottom of the ovoid’s longer axis.
Electric fields within the ovoid then accelerate the positive (say,
kundalini) and negative (say, prana) super particles in different directions,
generating vertical currents within the magma ovoid, aligned with
its longer axis. The vertical currents in turn generate magnetic fields.
Charged particles then course through the field lines generated by these
magnetic fields as Birkeland currents. These secondary (Birkeland) currents
reinforce the primary (vertical) currents; which in turn generate
stronger magnetic fields. In other words, an ‘MHD (or magneto-hydrodynamics)
dynamo’ is set-up in the magma body.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
The magnetic fields generated by the biomolecular component of the physical
body which have been studied are weak and localised. However, magnetic
fields generated by dark bodies are strong as they serve to confine the
plasma. They move with the plasma bodies and their flux lines manifest as
meridians in our super magma bodies. Charged particles course along these
meridians as Birkeland currents – illuminating them – in a similar way that
fluorescent lamps are lighted up.
Brennan’s Observations
Barbara Brennan and many other metaphysicists have observed a vertical
current – aligned with the spine in a human being. This vertical current
develops into three vertical channels in the traditional literature. It is
recorded in Hindu metaphysics as the ‘Sushumna’ (or central) channel and
the ‘Ida’ and ‘Pingala’ (centre-left and centre-right) channels. According to
Brennan there is a vertical flow of energy that pulsates up and down the
central channel. She calls this vertical current in the central channel ‘the
main vertical power current.’
‘The main vertical power current induces other currents at right angles
to it to form golden streamers that extend directly outward 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,’ she says.21 Brennan’s observations that other
currents are induced at ‘right angles’ to the vertical current is significant.
Magnetic fields are generated by currents at right angles to the direction of
the current. Brennan’s observation suggests that charged particles are flowing
within these magnetic fields generated by the vertical current. Hence,
these secondary currents observed by Brennan would have to be considered
Birkeland currents – confirming that these are magma bodies.
Straight and (Secondary) Helical Channels
According to Leadbeater, the course through which (kundalini) ought to
move is spiral.22 This observation can also be found in Hindu religious and
metaphysical literature.
It is significant that kundalini is observed to follow a helical path around
the straight channels when it rises. Charged particles coursing through the
straight channels create currents which generate magnetic fields. It is wellknown,
in basic electromagnetics, that magnetic field lines follow a spiral or
helical path at right angles to the direction of the current.
There are two currents within the straight channels, moving in opposite
directions. The first current of negative super particles (analogous to prana
particles) is accelerated towards the base of the spine. The second current of
st ructu res withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 9
positive super particles (analogous to kundalini particles in a dense plasma
state) is accelerated towards the head region. The two currents generate a
pair of helical magnetic field lines – which provide additional channels for
charged particles to flow. There is a centre-left helical channel and a centre-
right helical channel. These form a double-helix around the two straight
channels. Charged particles, including high density kundalini and low density
prana, accelerate through these magnetic field lines forming Birkeland
currents within magma bodies.
High density kundalini accumulates in the centre of the ovoid, just as
it is present in the centre of the Earth – consistent with the universal density
profile of dark matter under the cold dark matter model. Leadbeater says
that ‘it is evident that the material in the centre of the Earth is in sympathetic
relation with the layers of kundalini in the human body.’ The vertical
current along the longer axis of the ovoid resembles a bar. Many spiral
galaxies with a central bulge, including our own, have a bar of stars and gas
aligned to its longer axis (looking at the galaxy edgewise).
We know that when currents move around a coil of wire which is
wrapped around a bar of iron, the bar becomes magnetised. The straight
channels are like electromagnetic bar (bipolar) magnets. When kundalini
and prana particles spiral around the helical channels at normal volumes
and speeds, the magnetic field generated by the straight channels are amplified
and strengthened. The stronger magnetic field around the straight
channels, in turn, allows kundalini and prana particles to move more freely
and strongly in the helical channels – which again amplifies the magnetic
field of the straight channels – generating an ‘MHD dynamo’ within the
super magma body.
If the process is not properly managed, balanced and supervised,
chaos could set in. For example, if certain practices over-stimulate the flow
of kundalini, abnormal volumes of kundalini could be released into the
channels – causing chaotic energetic surges which could result in physical
damage and electromagnetic dysfunctionalities (including short-circuits,
black-outs and brown-outs) within super magma bodies and ‘disease’ in
the biomolecular body. The electromagnetic disturbances in super magma
bodies also generate chaotic emotional surges, mental trauma and acute
headaches. Such symptoms have been observed not only in the East but also
among Western Christian contemplatives.
Kundalini is drawn into the body mainly by a large downward-facing
chakra. On the other hand, prana is drawn into the body mainly by the large
upward-facing chakra coincident with the top of the (physical-biomolecular
body’s) head. Kundalini is denser than prana and is of opposite polarity.

Splitting of Light from Nucleus
The Zeeman effect in physics refers to the splitting of a spectral line into
two or more components of slightly different frequency and energies when
a light source is placed in a magnetic field. It was first observed in 1896 as
a broadening of the yellow lines of sodium in a flame held between strong
magnetic poles. Later the broadening was found to be a distinct splitting of
spectral lines into as many as 15 components.
Due to the influence of a bipolar magnetic field generated by the vertical
power currents, the light from the nucleus in magma bodies is split into
several components, with different frequencies (and therefore colors) and
energies – as a result of the Zeeman effect. There is an ascending order of
frequencies and energy levels. The components act as catalytic electromagnetic
sinks which induce the central straight and helical channels to pinch
to form nodes, which later evolve into chakras. Each node, which sets up
an intense electromagnetic field around itself, then generates its own set of
meridians – which connect with the rest of the magma ovoid.
Daniel Cozort reports that the origin of the red and white drops within
channels (discussed earlier) is believed to be the ‘indestructible drop’ at the
heart, a tiny drop the size of a large mustard seed or small pea (it is called
‘indestructible’ because the ‘continuum of the very subtle wind’ within it is
never broken according to Tibetan Yoga).23 This drop (which is equivalent
to the nucleus) is actually composed of two drops – the ‘eternal drop,’ which
is very subtle and the ‘lifetime drop’ which is destroyed at the end of an
individual’s life.24
The origin of the various nodes that evolve later into chakras is the
nucleus of the magma body which is normally situated around the heart
region (it was probably ‘captured’ by the strong electromagnetic field generated
by the heart – which acts as an electromagnetic well or sink.) The light
from the nucleus is split by the Zeeman effect during morphogenesis. During
the death process, however, there is a ‘reversed Zeeman effect’ (after the
collapse of the main vertical power current). In this case, the different nodes
of different colors merge into a single nucleus (which Tibetan Yoga calls the
‘indestructible drop’) which is then ejected from the body.
Vortexes, Chakras
Barbara Brennan describes chakras as swirling cone-shaped vortexes in
the human energy field. Chakras (or ‘wheels’ in Sanskrit) are rotating cone
structures or vortexes in super magma bodies which have been observed
by most experimental metaphysicists. These chakras are in fact the external
manifestation of interactions between charged particles in ionised
(or plasma) environments and the nodes which form when meridians (or
st ructu res withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 9
channels) pinch or converge.
Formation of Chakras
It has recently been realised (as discussed in plasma cosmology and plasma
crystal technologies) that a localised source at fixed frequency excites a cone
of radiation with an axis aligned with the magnetic field passing through
the source. The apex of the cone will be pointed towards the source. The
angle of the cone is determined by the frequency. According to A Piel and
his colleagues, who conducted experiments on waves and oscillations in
plasma crystals, fast moving particles in a plane below or next to a singlelayer
plasma crystal can excite Mach cones.25
Pinching of Meridians
According to plasma cosmology, stars and rotating galaxies are formed
when Birkeland currents are pinched. This can happen when two currents
move towards or cross each other. The components created by the Zeeman
effect (discussed above) are electromagnetic in nature and meridians tend to
converge on them. Based on observations in plasma cosmology, we can infer
how chakras develop in super magma bodies.
Dr David Tansely, a radionics specialist, says that, ‘The seven major
chakras are formed at points where standing lines of light (or meridians)
cross each other 21 times. The 21 minor chakras are located at points where
the energy strands cross 14 times.’26 When meridians cross in our super
magma bodies, they pinch each other, forming ‘knots’ and collapsing as
nodes, pulsating at fixed frequencies. The pulsations and the intense magnetic
field attract super particles and objects (such as Q-balls) – which rush
into the node using a helical path, which excites a cone of radiation.
Alignment of Cones
This cone has an axis aligned with the magnetic field passing through the
source. In other words, it would be as if the magma (in the chakra) are swirling
around a bar magnet (the magnetic field generated by the node). If we
could imagine the chakra as a cone, this means that the apex of the cone
would have a different magnetic polarity from the base of the cone. The
apex of the cone is in contact with the node (i.e. it is facing the central channels).
The broad base of the cone will be facing the environment. If we look
at the central channel, the nodes would be distributed along the knots in
the central channels at discrete intervals. This agrees well with metaphysical
observations (and is consistent with the behavior of magnetic plasma,
as noted in studies of plasma crystals 27). According to Brennan, ‘Their tips
point into the main vertical power current and their open ends extend to the
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
edge of each layer of the field they are located in.’28
Double Vortex Structure
According to the scientific researchers, a complicated elastic double vortex
structure emanates from the excited region. Each of the vortexes then splits
into an outgoing and inward-going vortex. The inward-going structures
show a crossover in the centre of excitation and reappear as a secondary
outgoing vortex that follows the original outgoing vortex. The wave-fronts
are circular near the source.29
This resembles how metaphysicists, such as Leadbeater and Barbara
Brennan, have described and illustrated the spinal chakras – which come
in pairs and have circular wave-fronts. A tube or channel connects the
outward-facing chakra at the front of the body to the chakra behind the
body – which faces in the opposite direction.
Wave Types
Two fundamental wave types (longitudinal and transverse waves) make up
the complicated wave pattern of the vortex. The evolution of the transverse
wave is characterised by an initial double vortex. The longitudinal wave
also forms circular wave-fronts, although with an orthogonal distribution
of radiation energy. It evolves into a ‘wave train.’ The wave train formation
and the Mach cone structure are two manifestations of the same phenomenon
according to Piel’s findings.
Both the Mach cone structure (the chakra feature generated by the
primary force) and the wave train (undulating waves within the chakra generated
by secondary forces) have been identified by Leadbeater. According
to Leadbeater, a primary force rushes at right angles to the plane of the spinning
chakra – these are forces generated by the highly energetic particles
from the environment which are strongly attracted to the intense magnetic
fields of the nodes in the meridian just below the surface of the magma
body. Then, having entered the vortex it radiates from it again at right angles
(i.e. an orthogonal distribution of the force), but in straight lines – as though
the centre of the vortex were the hub of a wheel, and the radiations the
spokes. The number of these ‘spokes’ differs according to the frequency of
the chakra.30
According to Leadbeater, the primary force generates secondary forces
which have their own characteristic wave-lengths – moving along in relatively
large sinusoidal waves of various sizes (i.e. a wave train) – each of
which is some multiple of the smaller wave-lengths within it. The frequency
of waves set up by secondary forces is determined by the number
of ‘spokes’ in the chakra. The secondary force weaves itself under and over
st ructu res withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 9
the radiating currents of the primary force.31
The correlations between what Leadbeater observed in the chakras of
the etheric, astral and causal bodies; and vortexes in plasma crystals provides
further evidence that these bodies are composed of super magnetic
plasma, which behaves in similar ways to standard cosmic plasma.
Vortex Arrays
It is interesting to note that the cone structures (or chakras) are positioned at
different angles in illustrations in the metaphysical literature. As noted earlier,
the angle correlates with the frequency of the radiation source, according
to plasma cosmology. It is well-known in metaphysics that not only are
the spinal chakras positioned at different angles but that each chakra spins
at a different frequency.
Absorption of Energy
According to Barbara Brennan, each swirling vortex of energy appears to
suck or entrain energy from the ‘Universal Energy Field.’32 Chakras connect
to the nodes of meridians which are areas of intense magnetic fields. They
are therefore able to attract high-energy charged Q-balls (qi, prana or kundalini
relevant to that particular super universe and specific chakra) with a
net magnetic polarity from the magma environment within the ovoid. The
energetic plasma of super particles from the environment (or as what Brennan
calls the ‘Universal Energy Field’) has already permeated through the
membrane or electrified sheath of the ovoid.
The particles, after absorption, course through the meridians to distribute
energy to various parts of the body – similar to what happens in the
heart-lung and circulatory systems in the physical-biomolecular body in
terms of distributing oxygen to the cells in the body. When particles in
super magma bodies are energized they begin to respond to their environments.
Leadbeater states that one of the functions of chakras is to calibrate
(or entrain) the frequencies of particles in order for them to be responsive to
particular frequencies of radiations in the magma environment.33 When the
Q-balls have transferred their energy to the particles in the body, they are
ejected from the body through its skin and the magma bubble’s membrane
causing magma bodies to glow; or alternatively they may be cannibalized
and used by the body to form other components. When super particles enter
or leave magma bodies, they cause these bodies to emit light.
Magneto-Hydrodynamics in Chakras
Chakras along the spine of a human body are quite large compared to the
hundreds of small rotating micro-chakras which make up the ‘acupoints’ in
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
acupuncture. These chakras are usually called the ‘spinal chakras.’ Just like
sun spots, chakras represent areas of intense magnetic fields. Similarly, the
micro chakras or acupoints are also areas of concentrated magnetic fields.
In fact, each chakra (whether major or minor) is like a bar magnet aligned to
the chakra’s axis of rotation.
The matter in the various magma bodies are shaped due to both hydrodynamics
and the presence of magnetic fields (in other words, magnetohydrodynamics);
and the interactions with charged particles in the plasma
environment. For example, water spirals down into a sink hole due to the
pull of the gravitational force and hydrodynamics. Similarly charged Qballs
attracted to the highly charged and magnetised nodes in meridians are
sucked into the magma bodies at very high speeds – exciting cone structures
on the surface. Under the influence of the intense magnetic field, charged
particles from the plasma environment spiral into the nodes and then into
the meridians – to bring energy to various parts of the magma body.
Nested Cones (or Chakras within Chakras)
According to Piel and his colleagues, the Mach cones in plasma crystals
possess an interesting multiple structure of nested cones, which were
explained as the dispersive effects of longitudinal waves.34 Nested cones
within chakras in our magma bodies have been observed by Barbara Brennan.
According to Brennan, chakras appear ‘to be nested within each other
like nesting glasses. Each chakra on each higher layer extends out farther in
the auric field (to the edge of each auric layer) and is slightly broader than
the one below it.’ She also observes that within each chakra there are also
small rotating vortexes spinning at very high rates. Each vortex metabolizes
an energy that resonates with its particular spin frequency.35 The first type
of nesting – where each chakra is extended to the higher-energy bodies, can
be called a vertical nesting. Horizontal nesting, the second type of nesting,
describes smaller vortexes within the chakra.
Direction of Chakra Spin
According to Brennan, the open end of a normal chakra in the first layer
of the aura is about six inches in diameter and at a distance of about one
inch from the body. The direction in which a chakra spins is important.
When the chakra is spinning clockwise it is absorbing energy. When spinning
anticlockwise – the flow of energy is in the reversed direction.36 This is
similar to airflows in the operation of an electric fan. Chakras in the Northern
and Southern Hemispheres are affected more by electromagnetic forces
than by gravitational forces, as is the large-scale structure of the universe as
studies in plasma cosmology suggest.
st ructu res withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 9
Health of Chakras
If chakras or acupoints are rotating sluggishly or are malfunctioning, energy
distribution will become erratic, low or stopped. It is analogous to a
lung infection, asthma or a heart condition. Brown-outs or black-outs could
occur in electromagnetic super magma bodies. Acupuncture seeks to free
blockages in these acupoints or simply to stimulate activity in the chakra,
so that energy can be drawn in from the environment more efficiently and
distributed within the super magma bodies. A blocked meridian is as dangerous
as a blocked blood vessel, which cause heart attacks or strokes in the
physical-biomolecular body.
Sheath, Shell, Membrane
The outer edge [of the egg form] actually looks like an eggshell
to me; it appears to have a thickness of about a quarter to a
half inch. It is strong and resilient, resistant to penetration
and protects the field.
Barbara Brennan 37
The outer layers of the etheric, astral and causal bubbles form membranes
or shells. According to plasma cosmology studies and plasma physics
in general, magma has a natural tendency to form (double-layered) electrified
sheaths, separating magma of different physical properties. Leadbeater
says that the astral and etheric centres are in very close correspondence;
but between them, and interpenetrating them is a sheath of closely woven
texture, a sheath composed of a single layer of highly compressed physical
atoms which is permeated by a special force.38 Even other metaphysicists
report that the ovoid magma bodies are wrapped by a membrane or
a sheath. This membrane has been called an ‘auric shell.’ Metaphysicist,
Lobsang Rampa, calls it an ‘auric sheath.’39 Surface currents on the shell or
sheath separate the magma ovoid from the surrounding magma environment.
The sheath acts as a protective electromagnetic shield whose strength
and polarity can be adjusted by an act of will by the owner of the body, using
focused visualisations and other techniques common in meditation.
Asymmetrical Flows of Energy between Magma Bodies
Leadbeater observes an asymmetry in the flow of energies between higherenergy
and lower-energy magma bodies. While higher frequency energies
can easily penetrate the auric sheath and flow down easily into the lower
energy body, lower frequency energies cannot penetrate the sheath and
move up to higher energy bodies. Leadbeater reported that ‘the divine life
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
which normally descends from the astral body to the physical is so attuned
so as to pass through the sheath with perfect ease, but it is an absolute barrier
to all other forces – all of which cannot use the atomic matter of both
planes. This is the protection provided by nature to prevent a premature
opening up of communication between the planes.’ 40
A similar asymmetry has been observed in studies of complex plasma.
A Piel and his colleagues report the existence of attractive forces that lead
to vertical alignments of particles in experiments on plasma crystals. In
their experiment, two particles of slightly different mass formed a vertically
aligned pair. When the upper particle was pushed sideways the lower particle
strictly followed the upper particle’s motion. However, when the lower
particle was pushed by the same laser force, the binding with the upper
particle was destroyed. ‘This clearly demonstrated the asymmetric nature of
the attractive force’ said A Piel. He adds, ‘The asymmetry allows information
to be communicated downstream but not upstream.’41

Holographic Mechanisms
within Magma Bodies
Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors of the twentieth century, was able
to visualise possible inventions with great facility. He did not need to make
models or drawings or perform experiments – all he had to do was set his
mind’s eye to work. According to Tesla, ‘It is absolutely immaterial to me
whether I run my turbine in thought or test it in my shop. The results are the
same. The images I saw were wonderfully sharp and clear and had the solidity
of metal and stone – absolutely real and tangible in every detail, even to the
minutest marks and signs of wear. Invariably my device works as I conceived
it and the experiment comes out exactly as I planned it. In twenty years there
has not been a single exception.’ Tesla’s lucid visualisations remind us of
Albert Einstein’s ‘thought experiments’ which were just as real and reliable
to Einstein as it was for Tesla. Albert Einstein characterised the manner in
which he initiated his thought processes as largely ‘visual.’ He said he rarely
thinks in words and explains, ‘The psychical entities which seem to serve as
elements in (my) thought (processes) are clear images which can be “voluntarily”
reproduced and combined.’ Einstein was able to manipulate these mental
images as he desired.
To most of us, our mental images appear fuzzy in waking consciousness
and in dreams. Clairvoyants and regular meditators, on the other hand, are
able to see their thought-forms (or mental images) more clearly and in full
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
color in their mind’s eye. The great music composer, Brahms, wrote that
when he is in an exalted state, ‘I immediately feel vibrations which thrill my
whole being … and assume the form of distinct mental images.’
According to Leadbeater1 and Valerie Hunt2, when a man thinks of any
concrete object – a book, a house, a landscape – he builds a tiny image of
the object in the matter of his (lower) Causal body. This image floats in the
upper part of his body, usually in front of the face of the man and at about
the eye level. These mental images are so entirely objective that they may
not only be seen by a clairvoyant, but they can even be moved about and
re-arranged by someone other than their creator. The images are definite,
crystal-clear and intricate to clairvoyants and others, like Einstein. Where
are these images emanating from? Are they produced by the biomolecular
brain? Karl Pribram, who won the Nobel Prize for his research into
the holographic nature of our brains, thinks that the holographic-like 3d
images we see in our mind’s eye are outside the brain mechanism.3
Holographic Storage in the Brain
Karl Lashley has pointed out, after conducting numerous experiments on
the brains of animals, that neither the learning nor the retention of a habit is
localised in any one area of the cortex. Instead, the degree of retardation in
learning or loss of memory following cortical lesions is proportional to the
amount, and not the place, of the cortical lesion. This fact, which he calls
‘cerebral mass action,’ has been demonstrated over and over again4; suggesting
that memories are stored in the form of holograms or holographic codes.
According to Pribram, the brain uses holographic-like code to encode
incoming sensory information. There are no laser beams in the brain.
The retinal image is mapped onto the brain’s cortex which breaks down
the image into various waveforms using a mathematical technique called
‘Fourier transforms’ (as in holography). The brain does not store a literal
reproduction of an object’s image but an abstract holographic code of wavephase
relationships like the overlapping patterns of light and shade on a
holographic plate.5 In a sense, the brain, according to Pribram, represents
the holographic film on which interference patterns are stored. Our brains
appear to operate as real-time holographic recording machines. To understand
this process better, we look at recent attempts at memory storage
using holographic techniques in computer systems.
Holographic Storage in Computer Systems
A digital holographic storage system, integrated with a computer hard drive,
was built by scientists at Stanford University.6 Data is converted into light
patterns and stored in a holographic form. It can be ‘stacked up’ in the holoho
log raphic mech anisms withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 10
gram by recording at several angles. In holographic data storage, an entire
page of information is stored at once as an optical interference pattern
within a thick, photosensitive optical material. This is done by intersecting
two coherent laser beams within the storage material. The two beams produce
an optical interference pattern which causes chemical and/or physical
changes in the photosensitive medium. A replica of the interference pattern
is stored as a change in the absorption, refractive index, or thickness of the
photosensitive medium. The pattern contains information about the amplitude
and the phase of the two light beams.
When the stored interference pattern or grating is subsequently illuminated
by one of the two beams used during the recording, some of the light
is diffracted by the stored grating in such a way that the wave generated by
the other beam is reconstructed. The interference pattern is thus reconstructed
to produce the image of an object.
A large number of these interference patterns or gratings can be superimposed
in the same thick piece of media and can be accessed independently,
as long as they are distinguishable by the direction or spacing of the gratings.
Such separation can be accomplished by changing the angle between
the two waves or by changing the laser’s wavelength. Any particular data
page can then be read out independently by illuminating the stored gratings
with the wave that was used to store that page.7,8
Is the wet biomolecular brain capable of storing information in the
same way as a computer system using holographic storage techniques? How
does it project 3d images in the ‘mind’s eye’? Would a more obvious place
to store this type of information be in our liquid-crystal super magma bodies?
More specifically, from the vantage point of our biomolecular bodies,
would the liquid-crystal etheric double be a more obvious place? The latest
scientific experiments show that liquid-crystal is indeed the ideal material
for not only holography, but real-time holography.
Doped Liquid-Crystals are Ideal for Real Time Holography
For real-time dynamic holography, erasable holographic film is required.
The most commonly used erasable holographic film are crystals which
are doped (or mixed) with iron or other suitable materials. These crystals
react to the light and dark regions of an interference pattern by changing
their arrangements of electrons which result in changes in their index of
refraction. The stored arrangements can be rearranged by later illumination,
so it is possible to erase recorded holograms and replace them with
new ones. A holographic storage system built from crystals would record
data slowly and in large blocks but provides rapid access to any small chunk
of data – quite similar to how our brains appear to operate. The large data
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
blocks could be erased and replaced as desired.
Liquid-crystals may also be doped with other materials. The addition
of carbon nanotubes and buckyballs to liquid-crystals alters the crystalline
alignment of liquid-crystals and changes their nonlinear optical properties,
according to Penn State electrical engineers. Dr. Khoo Iam-Choon, professor
of electrical engineering, and his team say that the axis of refraction of
these ‘doped’ liquid-crystals change when exposed to light. The doped liquid-
crystal film can be used to create real-time holographic movies according
to him.9 Stanislaw Bartkiewicz and his colleagues have conducted many
experiments using doped liquid-crystals and recommend them for real time
holography. They say that doped liquid-crystals are ideal materials for real
time holography.10, 11
Meschede and his colleagues directed a laser beam into a crystal doped
with iron that can be ‘imprinted’ with instructions on how to reconstruct
a pattern of crossed lasers. As a first test, the team chose to create a simple
interference pattern (a hologram) of three beams, one hitting the crystal and
two reflected at slightly inclined angles to the first. They ‘recorded’ these
instructions by heating the crystal and focusing three intense rays upon
it at the proper angles for three hours. Hitting this prepared crystal with
a laser re-created the interference pattern, which looked something like a
backgammon board.12, 13
A team member, Karsten Buse, says that in principle such crystals can
store a pattern of up to 1,000 overlapping beams. They could also hold
separate holographic images for incoming light of different wavelengths or
angles. To make a three-dimensional pattern, Meschede explains that the
beam could contain several kinds of atoms, and the holographic template
could be tuned to focus on one component at a time, letting the others pass
right through. The method could be used to make intricate structures, such
as photonic crystals and a new technology that may lead to ‘circuits of light,’
according to Meschede.14
Liquid-Crystal Magma Bodies Doped with ‘Samskaras’
Doping or mixing the liquid-crystal with suitable materials appears to
be an important part of the process in preparing liquid-crystals for holographic
storage and playback. Our super magma bodies are liquid-crystal
but are they ‘doped’? The metaphysical literature suggests that they are.
According to the metaphysical literature, the sight of an object, the thinking
of a thought, the performance of an act or the saying of a single word
leaves a trace in the ‘soul’ that lasts; leaving an imprint in the subconscious
mind, which then color all of life, one’s nature, responses, states of mind
and attitudes. This subconscious imprint is called a ‘samskara’ in Hindu
ho log raphic mech anisms withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 10
literature. These imprints are thought to be etched or imprinted in the
subtle bodies – in other words, the super magma bodies. The Catholic saint
and doctor of the Church, Theresa (of Avila), says that ‘the soul is like a
crystal in the sunshine over which a thick black cloth has been thrown so
that however brightly the Sun may shine the crystal can never reflect it.’15
Siddhartha Gautama said that the the mind is luminous, but it is defiled
by taints that come from without.16 ‘Samskaras’ and ‘vasanas’ are seen as
‘taints that come from without.’ Meditation is seen by Patanjali 17 as the
final method by which these vasanas and samskaras, as impressions accumulated
in the mind, can be wiped out. Siddhartha, however, has warned
that not all types of meditation can wipe them out – only certain types of
meditation accompanied by reflective analysis. These imprints are not
only stored in our magma bodies but as a result of them, manifestations or
‘playbacks’ can occur. Octavian Sarbatoare says, ‘Vasanas (or samskaras)
are imprints in the mind or mind residues that give to the mind a certain
tendency to manifest.’18
It is interesting to note that Barbara Brennan and other metaphysicists
have observed subtle bodies to have ‘grids of light’ and have described them
as ‘standing waves of light.’19 Some others have described them as ‘light
bodies.’ This suggests further that Pribram’s holographic memory system
may not originate in the biomolecular brain but in the liquid-crystal etheric
double and replicated in other higher energy bodies. The biomolecular
brain provides sensory information to the etheric double for holographic
encoding, consistent with Leadbeater’s observations.20 It would be understandable
in this context that research into the brain against the backdrop
of the invisible etheric double (which is currently not detectable by our instruments)
would suggest that the biochemical brain is holographically encoded
(in some mysterious way).
Parts for Holographic Machines within Super Magma Bodies
Super magma bodies are ideal real-time holographic machines which generate
and project holographic images in response to thoughts and emotions
(just close your eyes for some time and observe the 3d images in your mind).
The peculiar properties of magma provide the higher energy bodies all the
‘parts’ to construct a holographic machine, including lenses, wires and
screens. This is supplemented by magnets, dynamos and batteries that have
been discussed in earlier chapters.21
Plasma lenses and wires
Thomas Katsouleas of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles
and his colleagues have observed beams of particles bend when passing
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
through plasma – just as light bends when passing through a lens. A collaboration
of physicists in California has shown that a rarified plasma, a million
times less dense than air, can bend or ‘refract’ an intense, high-energy
electron beam that can ordinarily bore through several millimetres of steel.
This opens up possibilities for using plasma to direct current, just as copper
wires guide electric current, effectively acting as ‘plasma wires.’22 ‘Not
only did we see refraction, but we saw the beam reflect at the edge of the
plasma, and we saw it split in two,’ said Katsouleas. ‘It is a peculiar property
of plasma that this occurs. Even though the beam is intense enough
to blast through solid steel, it hit plasma that was about one million times
less dense than the air and bounced off.’23 As discussed earlier, magma has
the ability to generate beams of particles. Plasma also has strong refracting
and reflecting abilities enabling it to focus these beams of particles, including
photons, to specific targets – acting like lenses. This gives super magma
bodies many of the components required to operate a holographic machine
within the body – including plasma lenses and wires!
Focused Beams of Light from Chakras
According to Li and colleagues, an ordered magnetic field is widely thought
to have an essential role in jet formation from a rotating accretion disk in
a magma environment. The process of forming parallel or ‘collimated’ jets
and outflows due to disk accretion onto central compact objects is thought
to depend on how magnetic fields behave when they are swirled around by
the accretion disk.24
Jet formations also occur in cosmic plasma. As far back as 1918,
astronomer H D Curtis noticed a jet from the centre of the galaxy M87,
describing it as a ‘curious straight ray’ emanating from the galaxy. Taking
the form of a huge flashlight beam in space, a jet of electrons and protons
travelling near the speed of light can be seen in NA SA’s most recent image
of the galaxy. Energetic astrophysical jets, with velocities approaching the
speed of light, are seen on a variety of scales emerging from active galactic
nuclei and young stars. It is thought that they result from the magnetohydrodynamics
of accretion disks rotating around a large mass. The energy
radiates from charged particles that are moving in a curved orbit (typically
around a magnetic field aligned with the jet).
As discussed earlier (Chapter 9), the chakra is a rotating accretion disk
on the compact super magma body which swirls around an intense magnetic
field, aligned with the axis of the chakra. (The axis of the chakra will
be parallel to a jet issuing from it). The rotation is caused by charged super
particles rushing into the node – following a helical path.
ho log raphic mech anisms withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 10
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. There are important chakras on the palms of the
hands. The frequency and spin rate of the chakra would have a direct effect
in determining the energy and coherence of the beam. One of the seers
of the Fatima apparitions of ‘Mary,’ Lucia, revealed that during one of the
apparitions, ‘Mary’ opened her hands and ‘rays of light’ issued from them.
This may have been done simply by increasing the rotational speed of the
chakra in the palm (by an act of will) causing charged super particles to
swirl around an intense magnetic field rapidly, radiating energy which was
directed by the magnetic field aligned with the jet.
The Internal Plasma Holographic TV
In his best-selling book ‘The Feeling of What Happens,’ Antonio Damasio
points out that the neurobiology of consciousness faces a problem in trying
to explain how the ‘movie-in-the-brain’ is generated.25 When someone uses
his ‘mind’s eye’ does he recreate the original sequence using the part of the
brain that originally processed the scene or sound, or some other part? If so
in what form are these scenes or sounds stored and how are they displayed
or played-back? Why is it bright? Is the image in a mind’s eye actually made
up of photons or super-photons? If so, how does the mind project a stream
of photons onto its mental screen, like an internal TV?
While Pribram believes that holographic encoding and storage takes
place in the brain there is very little explanation as to how the interference
patterns which are supposed to be stored in the biomolecular brain actually
recreate and project 3d images in the mind’s eye. In 1980, cognitive
scientist Stephen Kosslyn demonstrated that ‘the mind’s eye’ is surprisingly
real. The visual field of our biological eyes is a flat oval, about 45
degrees in height and 120 degrees wide. The aspect ratio (the ratio of the
vertical to the horizontal extension) of the visual field of the mind’s eye is
the same! Bernard Baars says, ‘A variety of experiments show a remarkable
resemblance between the physical visual field and its mental double.’
In 1988 Stephen Kosslyn and Martha Farah showed that visual imagery
(in the mind’s eye) elicits activity in the same parts of the brain’s cortex
as visual perception In other words, in generating mental images in the
mind’s eye; we use the same parts of the brain that interprets information
from the physical eye. If that is so, scientists should also ask, ‘Which “eye”
is the brain using when interpreting our internal images and how are the
images generated?’
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
According to the metaphysical literature, the 3d images in the ‘internal TV’
or the mind’s eye are generated in higher-energy super magma bodies and
then brought to focus in the lower energy etheric double through a sophisticated
mechanism, possibly involving quantum gravity!
It has often been argued that there is no ‘homunculus’ (or a ‘little man’)
within the (biomolecular) brain that looks at images generated by the brain
as this would lead to infinite regress. This argument appears simplistic in
the light of the existence and complex interactions of a series of body-brains
with their own sophisticated cognitive-sensory activities. Conventional
neuroscientists currently assume only one body (i.e. the ordinarily visible
biomolecular body).
Gravitational Lensing in our Heads?
Light has been observed to be ‘bent’ by large masses such as stars due to
distortions in spacetime that these masses create. In fact, it was this observation
in 1919 that shot Albert Einstein to fame. The star, in bending light,
behaves just as an optical lens. Even elementary particles have gravitational
fields. As such even massive elementary particles can bend light.
Leadbeater reported in 1910 that an ‘atom’ allows us to view images
emanating from our higher energy super magma bodies.26 Gravitational
lensing was not known then. Based on a current interpretation of Leadbeater’s
report, a physical-etheric atom, using gravitational lensing, focuses
multi-dimensional images generated from higher energy bodies to a place
in front of the biological eyes as 3d images. This mobile atom will be found
most often hovering in front of the prefrontal cortex of the brain i.e. in the
middle of the eyes. When a person is not visualising any thoughts, this atom
can be clearly seen as a bright dot which hovers or floats in front of the
biological eyes. On closer inspection, two comet-like bodies (with nucleus
and tail) may be seen revolving around themselves in the atom – much like
the Yin-Yang symbol. This leads us to believe that this atom is in fact an
ensemble of two anu of opposite polarities. The alternating light and darkness
due to the revolutions creates a light-house effect – as if there was a
rotating beam of light.
When visualising, 3d images are delivered to the physical-etheric eyes
by this atomic lens – like a cinematic projector, from higher energy bodies.
Some may wonder how it is that we can see a single atom. Based on the
description it appears that this quantum object may be as large as an atom.
It has been pointed out by Roger Penrose and Gary Zukau that the dark
adapted (biological) eye is capable of seeing even a single photon 28, which is
smaller than this atomic lens. This ‘atom’ may be what is commonly called
the ‘third eye’ in the metaphysical literature.
ho log raphic mech anisms withi n magm a bo dies | Chapter 10
Most examples of gravitational lensing show multiple images of the object
behind the lens being generated. However, this may not be so. Two types of
lenses can be distinguished in gravitational lensing – isothermal lenses and
Navarro-Frenk-White (or ‘NF W’) lenses. Unlike isothermal lenses which
generate multiple images, NF W lenses are able to produce large magnifications
with a single detectable image. Physicist Charles Keeton and his
colleagues, in a paper entitled ‘Gravitational lensing magnification without
multiple imaging’, conclude ‘…lensing can produce a single highly magnified
image; this phenomenon is mainly associated with massive clusterscale
halos.’28 Hence, Leadbeater’s atomic lens can be considered a massive
dark matter object (relative to the quantum scale) which generates a single
highly magnified image to our physical-etheric double’s eyes. According
to Leadbeater, abstract thoughts do not generate any images or forms in
our super magma bodies but instead generate vibrations which propagate
through the magma in our super magma bodies as acoustic waves.29
The System
It can also be observed that this atomic lens, though mobile, is bounded
within the space between the biological eyes – as if some invisible forces
were acting as an atom trap. It has been observed by Leadbeater and other
metaphysicists that the pineal and pituitary glands play important roles in
the interaction between the biomolecular body and the higher energy bodies.
Chains of magnetite crystals have been discovered in the brain tissue
of human beings. The ethmoid bone above the eyes and sinuses has a high
concentration, and so does the blood-brain barrier. The discovery of magnetite
in these areas is significant because of the proximity to the opthalmic
nerves, which carry visual information to the brain. It is also significant
as these structures may facilitate interactions between the physical-biomolecular
body and the lower physical-etheric body.
When the magnetic fields generated by these magnetite deposits are
made coherent by certain mental exercises, it may very well be possible that
these magnetic fields, together with the atomic lens (or ‘third eye’; or ‘mind’s
eye’) are enabled to receive and view images emanating from higher energy
bodies. The magnetic fields and atomic lens ensemble serves to focus images
generated from higher energy to lower energy bodies.

Appearance of Magma Bodies
Magma Bodies Emit Light
Unlike the biomolecular component of the physical body which is visible
because of reflected light, objects in the astral and causal universes emit light
as a result of the interaction between particles in magma bodies and high
energy particles in the environment or the ‘aurora effect.’ According to Leadbeater,
in the astral world there is a diffused luminosity, not obviously coming
from any special direction. The environment of emissive light bodies in super
universes would be very similar to being a character on the screen of a multidimensional
plasma holographic TV.
The Aura and the Aurora
The aura is a colored radiation that emanates from magma bodies and can be
seen by some people. Anthony Peratt says that electrons passing through space
are captured by the Earth’s magnetic field and follow spiral or helical tracks
about the lines of force and in the process collide with gases in the neutral
atmosphere creating the aurora.1 Paramahansa Yogananda said in 1946 that
the ‘astral luminaries’ resemble the aurora borealis.2
The aura that is radiated by the various magma bodies is generated by
a procedure not unlike the one that generates the aurora borealis. We have
already noted that there is a tendency for charged particles to follow magnetic
app earance of magm a bo dies | Chapter 11
lines of force.3 The charged super particles in the astral and causal ionised
magmaspheres are captured by the electromagnetic fields of our super
magma bodies and flow down (or up) magnetic (helical or spiral) lines of
force in the astral and causal bodies generating colorful auras. However,
whereas the aurora is a natural plasma light show comprising standard particles
– the aura is a plasma light show of super particles!
Kristian Birkeland put forward the auroral theory which is now widely
accepted by scientists. According to him, electrically charged particles
ejected from sunspots are captured by Earth’s magnetic field and directed
along the field’s lines into the polar regions. The incoming particles excite
the atoms and molecules in the air and ionise them – stripping them into
their non-neutral constituents. This is similar to a jet of charged energetic
electrons striking the phosphor screen of a TV causing images to be
formed. Peratt explains that to prove his auroral theory, Birkeland used
a simple device – he placed a sphere containing an electromagnet inside a
large vacuum chamber, which represented the space around the Earth and
its magnetic field. He then shot clouds of electrons toward this simulated
Earth to produce a light phenomenon that looked like the aurora.4
This configuration is exactly the same as that of a super magma body.
The super magma body is an ovoid with a plasma ‘auric’ sheath (a nearsphere)
with a magnetised central channel (equivalent to the electromagnet).
This ovoid exists within a plasma or ionised astral or causal environment.
Charged Q-balls, which have a net magnetic polarity, stream towards the
various chakras (which contain intense magnetic fields) at very high speeds
and spiral around helical paths just before they are absorbed by the chakra.
These charged balls interact with the Q-balls (and other super particles) in
the magma bodies to create a light phenomenon in the magma bodies – very
much like the aurora borealis. Anyone who compares the Kirlian images of
human auras (or who can actually see them) with the aurora borealis will
no doubt find a strong resemblance. The electromagnetic processes that
give rise to the aurora borealis are the same as those which give rise to the
human aura – which are basically colored clouds of radiation seen around
super magma bodies.
Lensing Properties of Magma Bodies
Magma bodies can become translucent or transparent through the manipulation
of frequencies generated by the magma (this is a natural property of
magma). In other words, the opacity of the magma bodies can be manipulated
electromagnetically. As magma bodies are frequently transparent or
translucent, there are no or only faint shadows, according to Leadbeater.5
Due to their transparency, the bodies themselves can act as lenses and even
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
‘Polaroid lenses’ due to the Faraday effect.
Faraday succeeded in showing that the plane in which light oscillates is
rotated as soon as light passes through special magnetisable bodies (such as
magma bodies) along the lines of force. The plane is rotated when the light
path and the direction of the applied magnetic field are parallel. The magnitude
of the rotation depends, among other things, on the strength of the
magnetic field and the frequency of the light. The direction of rotation is the
same as the direction of current flow in the wire of an electromagnet. Faraday
called his discovery ‘the magnetisation of light’ and ‘the illumination of
magnetic lines of force.’ We have now seen that light can in fact be magnetised,
and in nature itself, in the aurora borealis just discussed, the magnetic
lines of force of the Earth are illuminated by electrons escaping from the
Sun. Barbara Brennan observes that the etheric double incorporates a light
grid – which is basically a magnetic field with illuminated lines of force.
Another property of the ‘magma body lens’ is birefringence or ‘double
refraction.’ Birefringent materials can have two different indices of refraction
in different directions. This splits light into two components – which
can give rise to double images. Liquid crystals and magnetic plasma exhibit
this property. Birefringence can be easily manipulated with the help of rather
weak magnetic, electric or optical fields, leading to significant effects.
Magma Bodies are Thermochromic
When one heats a crystal made up of long rod molecules, the crystal loses
positional order and becomes a fluid. However, it may retain its orientation
and form a thread-like liquid-crystal state. If the repeat length of patterns
is of the same order as the wavelength of visible light, this thread-like
liquid-crystal can act as a diffraction grating and generate visible colors.
Because the spacing changes with temperature, the material changes color
with temperature (i.e. it is ‘thermochromic’). The thermochromic nature
of our magma bodies is particularly evident in the fluidic or liquid states.
It is well-known in metaphysical literature that the astral body (in its liquid
state) can be very colorful. Different temperatures within the astral body
give rise to a kaleidoscope of colors.
Display of Mental States in Super Magma Bodies
When a person is angry, heart and respiration rates go up, the voice becomes
louder and higher in pitch. When fearful, he has a heavy heartbeat and his
voice becomes softer, slower and lower in pitch. Brain CAT scans in real-time
can now show changes in these mental and emotional states on a computer
screen, using a variety of different display colors. Antonio Damasio and
his colleagues used brain-imaging technology known as positron emission
app earance of magm a bo dies | Chapter 11
tomography, or PET, to search out the brain regions activated or deactivated
when feeling anger, sadness, happiness and fear. Thirty-nine study participants
were asked to recall ‘personal emotional episodes’ powerful enough
to evoke each of the four emotions. The resulting brain images were then
combined for all the study subjects, using statistical techniques to eliminate
individual differences, producing a single composite image of each emotion
lighting up the brain. These images were then compared with a baseline
picture of the brain in a neutral emotional state. The researchers were left
with a unique snapshot of just those brain regions activated or deactivated
by each of the target emotions.
Similarly, these emotional and mental states are reflected in real-time
in our super magma bodies by changes in shape, brightness, contrast and
colors in different parts of the body; and the body as a whole. Magma bodies
can change colors because they are thermochromic and can also change
their degree of opacity. According to Leadbeater, every area of the physical-
biomolecular brain is mapped onto our magma bodies. Hence, brain
activities in the biomolecular bodies can be correlated to changes in the
appearance of super magma bodies.
A metaphysicist who observes and interprets the colors and other
attributes of a magma body is no different from a doctor observing a CAT
scan or MRI of the brain to diagnose a patient. Many ‘seers’ attribute these
colors to various mental or emotional thought patterns and behaviors – in
the same way that neurosurgeons today view a brain scan in real-time and
attribute emotional and mental states to the display colors, intensity, formations
and locations of these changes. Nevertheless, interpretations, even of
X-Ray images, CAT scans and MRIs are as much an Art as it is Science. An
intern doctor may have a lower probability of getting it right than an experienced
brain surgeon.
Surprise, Awe and Joy
Leadbeater observes that surprise is shown by a sharp contraction of the
magma body, accompanied by an increased glow if it is a pleasant surprise
and by a change of color to usually brown and grey in the lower part of
the ovoid when it is not. Awe swells the devotional part of the causal body
and the striations become more strongly marked. Joy generates an additional
brightness and radiance and produces ripples on the surface of the
magma body. General cheerfulness, in addition, produces bubbles and a
calm serenity which is pleasant to see.6
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Pre-occupation with Certain Thoughts and Subjects
If a person is preoccupied with certain types of thoughts, parts of the magma
body bulge and brighten in color. This breaks the symmetry of the ovoid.
In many people such bulging is permanent, which usually means that that
thought type is steadily dominating the person’s mind. If, for example, a
person takes up some scientific study, directing his thoughts to that subject
much more than before, the first effect will be the bulge, as discussed earlier.
If the person keeps his thoughts on the subject constant, the bulge will
gradually sink back into the general outline of the ovoid, but the band of its
color will become wider.7 In other words, the ovoid will ‘accommodate’ new
thought types over time into its generally symmetrical shape. If the person
increases the amount of thought in the subject, the bulge will remain even
though the band of its color has widened. The more an individual develops
his mental and emotional states positively, the larger will be the top of the
ovoid – so that the magma bodies have the appearance of a reversed eggshape,
with the small end at the bottom. The natural tendency, however, is
for the symmetry of the ovoid to re-assert itself by degrees.8
Magnetic Turbulence caused by Sudden Emotion
The matter in magma bodies, in the liquid state, is in ceaseless motion
according to Leadbeater. When the astral body is disturbed by any sudden
emotion, all its matter is swept about as if by a violent hurricane, so that
temporarily the colors become mixed.9 However, due to the natural tendency
of magma to separate into different regions – based on density and temperature,
the different types of matter which reflect or emit these various colors
will sort itself once more into its usual zones. Even then the matter is by no
means at rest, as the particles are all the time rushing around in these zones,
though rarely leaving their own belt and intruding on another.10 Just like in
the biomolecular brain, therefore, there is both localisation of activities and
plasticity in the magma body. Strong, magnetised turbulence occurs in the
Sun, clusters of galaxies and also in our super-magma bodies in the liquid
state, when worried or troubled.
Changing Appearances
It is well-documented in the metaphysical literature that super magma bodies
can change their appearances – almost at will. Persistent thought patterns
play an important part in the appearance of super magma bodies. For
example, the bodies can display a variety of clothes, skin and hair. How is it
possible for the body to change shape, color and its features within a blink
of an eye? In Marian and other religious apparitions even the fine details
of period costumes and hair can be seen. The super magma body may be
app earance of magm a bo dies | Chapter 11
using a technology that is similar to ‘plasmavision’ and LCD technology
combined. Each particle in its body (which is much smaller than a pixel in
a TV) can transform itself into various colors – just as the cells of the biomolecular
bodies of chameleons and squids do. The effect is so real; it is
indistinguishable from ‘real’ clothes and skin. For the etheric double, the
appearance and feel of the body is almost exactly the same as the biomolecular
body. Nevertheless, these changes in appearance occur mostly on
the surface of magma bodies – they are superficial.
A liquid magnetic froth, created and studied by University of Paris
researchers, Cyrille Flament and her colleagues, can display reversible, magnetically
controlled patterns on its surface. Combining oil with a magnetic
fluid, and placing the resulting froth between two glass plates, the researchers
applied magnetic fields to create 2d patterns consisting in some cases of
4-to 7-sided ‘cells’ of oil separated by magnetic fluid. Decreasing the intensity
of the magnetic field could change, for instance, the number of 5-sided
cells. Unlike other froths, such as a soap-and-water mixture, the pattern
can return by increasing the strength of the field again. A bar magnet on top
of the froth introduces an instability. However, once the magnet is removed,
the pattern returns. These studies throw light on how our super magma
bodies change their appearances through the effect of magnetic fields on
magma. Magma, particularly in the liquid state, is a magnetic fluid.
Patricia Cladis of AT&T Bell Labs uses liquid-crystals as a miniature
laboratory for studying phase transitions. Heating one end of a sample and
cooling the other end, Cladis found that the phase interface between a pure
liquid state and a liquid-crystal state features spatial patterns (stripes with a
characteristic ‘wavelength’).
Striations and Stripes
‘Striations’ are similar to ‘stripes’ and have been observed in our magma
bodies by Leadbeater. Like the bands on Jupiter, striations form in super
magma bodies because magnetic plasma has a natural tendency to separate
according to densities and temperatures. These observed striations in
our subtle bodies give us further evidence that our higher energy bodies
are indeed composed of magma. According to Leadbeater, in spite of the
intensely rapid motion of the particles among themselves, the lower causal
body has at the same time a kind of loose organisation. There are certain
striations in the body which divide it more or less irregularly into segments,
each of which corresponds to ‘a certain department of the physical brain, so
that every type of thought should function through its duly assigned portion,’
according to Leadbeater.11

Super Magma Bodies & Features of the Sun
As expected, super magma bodies have many features similar to the visible
Sun – which is after all a hot ball of standard magma.
Coronas, Granulation and Spicules
Coronal auras and discharges, granulation and spicules are all features associated
with the Sun and super magma bodies – the latter, as seen by clairvoyants.
The bright coronal aura of the Sun and the aura of super magma
bodies are similar. 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.
They were all together. Suddenly, from heaven there came a
sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire
house. Tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue
rested on each of them.
The Christian Bible 12
As noted previously, in demonstrations by Dr Thelma Moss, a magnet
near an aura generated ‘tendrils of energy.’ A strong magnetic field above
the heads of a group of persons would cause a coronal discharge from their
super magma bodies. Persons, who have spent days of prayer and meditation
in relative isolation, would be able to see the discharge because they
would already have transferred their locus of awareness to higher frequency
bodies. The magnetic field itself may be generated by a large super magma
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 super magma bodies. In a semi-darkened room
move your hands together so that the fingers touch. Then observe as you
move the fingers away, relaxing the eyes. Most people would be able to see
spicules within the halo around their fingers.

The Physical, Astral & Causal Bodies
Generic Descriptions of Magma Bodies
It is important to note that the descriptions given here are ‘generic’ descriptions
of the bodies. For example, our physical-biomolecular body could be
described as largely composed of water, with structures such as legs, hands
and a head. If we develop these descriptions we will meet with a variety of differences.
The physical body of a Chinese person looks very different from a
Caucasian’s. Even within the same race there are significant differences.
So the astral body of one person can be very different from another astral
body – although generically they are the same. They could be different in
terms of their colors, their shapes (whether egg-shaped, reverse egg-shaped
or irregularly shaped), their brightness, their sizes and other attributes. So in
practice, even when talking about one type of body, we have to bear in mind
that you will actually meet with a wide variety of ‘light-bodies’ in super magma
universes. Furthermore, many of these bodies may be non-human. You may
encounter shapeless amoeboid low-density magma bodies, irregular balls of
light which change in shape while in motion or streaks of light. All of these
are ‘magma bodies.’1
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Basic Shape of Super Magma Bodies of a Human Being is Ovoid
The basic shape of super magma bodies of humans and many other beings
is ovoid or spheroid (depending on the content within). The primate figure
inside the ovoid of a human being can be considered an artifact of the biomolecular
body – specifically the genes of a specific evolutionary lineage on
Earth at a point in time.
The central channels in the magma ovoid have been observed by Barbara
Brennan and other metaphysicists to extend out beyond the physical-
biomolecular body form. The chakras are also noted to extend beyond
the boundaries of the form outlined by the biomolecular body. This shows
that the chakras and vertical power current channels are native structures
within the auric shell which would have developed within the magma bubble
even if the biomolecular primate body form or its holographic projections
were not present. With the primate form present, however, the original
spheroid is stretched to become an ovoid. Furthermore, interdependencies
and interactions develop between the biomolecular form and the rest of the
content in the magma bubble.
The bodies of humans in super magma universes are generally ovoid
balls of light. The biomolecular form inside is a hologram projected by DNA ,
which has been modified by our thoughts and sedimented more densely
with magma.
The Physical Bodies
The first set of bodies is the physical bodies which include the physical-biomolecular;
and the lower and higher physical-etheric bodies (also known as
etheric doubles). The physical-biomolecular body is composed of 60-70%
of water. If we include the insides of cells, it is composed of 90% of water.
Even the brain is 90% water. Considering that magma makes up more
than 99% of the universe, the biomolecular body is in fact unrepresentative
of life-forms found in the local multiverse. It is more of an anomaly in
a magma multiverse. The physical-etheric body, which is the first super
magma body, is more representative of life-forms in the local multiverse.
Being a super magma body – it is like the other super magma bodies, an
electromagnetic body – not a biomolecular one. The electromagnetic (super
magma) bodies associated with humans are extremely light and resilient.
According to Barbara Brennan, the physical-etheric body (in its crystalline
state) is ‘like a sparkling web of light beams.’ The web-like structure
of the etheric body is in constant motion. To clairvoyant vision, the etheric
body consists of a definite structure of lines of force and sparks of bluishwhite
light move along these lines, according to her.2 Brennan’s observation
that the energy flows along lines of force confirms that these are Birkeland
th e ph ysic al, ast ral and caus al bo dies | Chapter 12
currents flowing in the etheric body (i.e. currents that flow along magnetic
field lines). It also confirms that the etheric body is a super magma body.
Based on her observations, the etheric body extends from one quarter to
two inches beyond the physical body and pulsates at about 15-20 cycles per
minute. The pulsations are likely to vary with activity – just as heartbeat
varies with activity. The color ranges from light blue to gray. The vortexes
or chakras are similarly colored.3
The Etheric Double is a Physical Body
The etheric double and the physical-biomolecular body are components
of the physical body. Both bodies exist in the physical universe which
has a spacetime signature of 3 spatial dimensions and 1 time dimension
(although the etheric double lives in a higher energy universe which is spatially-
reversed). Johannes Fisslinger, a metaphysicist, says that although
the ‘ethereal body’ is normally invisible to the human eye, it is a substance
belonging to the physical world; although of a higher frequency than gross
matter. It has been described as a fog-like, indistinct substance about onehalf
to two inches around the body. According to him, people with keener
perception are able to recognise more details.4
Annie Besant says that under the term physical body must be included
the Sthula Sharira (the physical-biomolecular sheath or body) and Linga
Sharira (the physical-etheric sheath or body) – since they both function on
the physical plane, are composed of physical matter, are formed for the
period of one physical life, are cast off at death, and disintegrate together
in the physical world when a person passes into the astral magmasphere.
According to her, as long as we cannot pass out of the physical world, we
are using one or the other of these physical vestures; they both belong to
the physical plane by their materials, and cannot pass outside it; consciousness
working in them is bound within their physical limitations, and is
subject to the ordinary laws of space and time.5
Many people can see etheric manifestations because the frequency of
the etheric component is very close to the ordinarily visible biomolecular
component of the physical body. What scientists classify as super particles
(under Supersymmetry theory) are mostly physical-etheric particles. Since
the etheric double is so close in frequency to the biomolecular body, these
shifts in the locus of awareness to the etheric double are quite common in
‘everyday’ waking consciousness and we are already very accustomed to its
[It was] several moments before I realised that I was not in my
normal physical body. Given that we are discussing a field of
th e ph ysic al, ast ral and caus al bo dies | Chapter 12
Higher and Lower Etheric Doubles
There is much evidence that there are at least two etheric doubles – of higher
and lower energies. Although etheric projections have been reported, some
metaphysicists do not believe that the etheric double can actually separate
from the biomolecular body because it supports the tissues and biochemical
activities in the biomolecular body and gives it structural integrity. Etheric
projections are therefore executed by the ‘higher etheric double’ (which lives
in a spatially-reversed higher energy universe – a mirror of our universe).
The ‘lower etheric double’ is so integrated with the biomolecular body that
any separation could cause the death of the biomolecular body. There are
other observations which also support the existence of two etheric doubles.
For example, during the intensive phase of the death process of physical
bodies, which will be discussed later, we are forced to assume another etheric
double, to be consistent with the metaphysical evidence.
The Astral Bodies
The second set of bodies in the energy ladder is the higher and lower astral
bodies – which can take on both crystalline and liquid states. Unlike the
etheric-double, the astral body does not duplicate the physical body. This
evidences that we are in a completely different universe, with a different
spacetime signature.
Once you succeed in projecting into the Astral Plane, my
experience has been that your astral body never mirrors the
physical. Why this should be so, I have no idea, but it is borne
out by direct observation.
J H Brennan 10
According to Brennan, the variation is extreme and could not be
described as any sort of body-image distortion. In one case, he reported that
‘the projector was a small blonde-haired, blue-eyed woman with a squarish
build and clearly defined features. Her astral body was, however, blackhaired,
brown-eyed, of average height and slightly plumpish build. It also
gave an appearance of a younger woman by perhaps as much as 20 years.’11
According to Leadbeater, astral matter in the astral ovoid congregates
more densely around the structure of the physical-biomolecular body (actually
the holographic projection of the physical-biomolecular body – this will
be explained later). This form is retained for a long time, even when the
astral body is temporarily withdrawn from the binding forces of the physical
bodies at night and permanently after death. Thoughts, however, have
a powerful influence on astral matter and can readily shape it. A man who
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
habitually thinks of himself as younger than he actually was at the time of
his death will gradually come to present a somewhat younger appearance in
his astral body.12 The astral bodies inhabit the astral universe which has a
spacetime signature of four spatial dimensions and one time dimension.
The Causal Bodies
The third set of bodies in the energy ladder is the higher and lower causal
bodies – which can also take up crystalline and liquid states. The causal body
in its crystalline state is structured and is composed of still finer substance
than the astral body. It expands and becomes brighter when its owner is
concentrating on mental processes.13 The bodies inhabit the causal universe
which has a spacetime signature of five spatial dimensions and one time
dimension. The causal body in its liquid state enables spiritual ecstasies.
The lower crystalline state enables the production of multi-dimensional
images of thoughts while the higher crystalline state does not generate any
objective images – simply a vibration, or more accurately, an acoustic wave in
the magma of the causal body, when thoughts occur. The latter is associated
with abstract thoughts.
The higher causal body in its crystalline state has the appearance of
a crystal of pure (super) light or a glittering diamond. Perhaps, this is also
what has been described as the ‘divine’ spark. This body actually marks the
end of personal bodies. Crystals of pure (standard) light have been created
in the laboratory. The Catholic saint and doctor of the Church, Theresa (of
Avila)14, Siddhartha Gautama15 and many others have characterised the soul
or the mind as luminous crystals or diamonds.

Inter-Body Interactions
Interactions between Dark & Ordinarily Visible Matter
According to current dark matter theory, dark matter generally does not
interact with ordinarily visible matter except through mutual interactions
involving their gravitational fields; and weak nuclear forces.
Tuning into Dark Matter
Outside of current dark matter theory, however, in the metaphysical literature,
there is evidence that dark matter can interact with ordinarily visible matter
in other ways. Since our invisible super magma dark bodies are (super) electromagnetic
bodies, the interactions studied in electromagnetics have a direct
Dark matter cannot be seen or felt because the electromagnetic spectrum
to which it relates is beyond detection ordinarily by both our senses and our
current scientific instruments. This means that the electromagnetic spectrum
relating to dark matter is either significantly lower or higher in frequency than
what scientific instruments can currently measure.
Theoretically, therefore, if there is a way in which the frequency of particles
making up ordinary matter can be increased or decreased significantly
the matter should disappear and become invisible to our senses and scientific
instruments. Conversely, if the frequency of particles making up dark
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
matter is increased or decreased, the matter would become visible to us
or be detectable by our scientific instruments. Our physical instruments
made up of the matter that is visible to us, however, cannot detect the dark
matter object directly – it is only when it falls within the known electromagnetic
spectrum that we can see or measure it. Dark matter objects in
the lowest frequency higher energy universe – the physical-etheric universe
- can only interact with ordinary matter if their energy levels temporarily
fall and ordinary matter condenses around them. Dark matter can
also interact with ordinary matter through the scientifically recognised
phenomena of sympathetic resonance and induction.
Sympathetic Resonance
In music, we note that the frequencies of certain notes have mathematical
relationships with certain higher or lower notes. For example, the ‘C’ note
is present both in higher and lower octaves. If the ‘middle C’ in a piano
is struck, the string (inside the piano) relating to the ‘high C’ vibrates or
resonates sympathetically with the ‘middle C.’ The frequency of the ‘high
C’ is exactly double that of ‘middle C.’ The principle of sympathetic resonance
has been used in many scientific instruments, including magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI) machines which are common medical imaging
tools used these days.
If particles of dark matter vibrated at a certain frequency, this could be
detected in ordinary matter if there are certain mathematical relationships
between the frequencies of both types of particles, such that the ordinary
particle resonates sympathetically with the dark matter particle. The frequency
detected in the ordinary particles will, however, be a correlate of
the higher or lower frequency of the dark matter particles. It is important
to clarify that any instrument which resonates sympathetically to the frequency
of a dark matter particle is not directly measuring the higher or
lower frequency of the dark matter particle but its correlate which comes
within the detectable segment of the electromagnetic spectrum in our ordinarily
visible and measurable universe.
The word ‘induction’ is used in a variety of contexts in English. In electromagnetics,
induction is defined as the process by which an electrical
conductor becomes electrified when near a charged body, by which a magnetisable
body becomes magnetised when in a magnetic field or in the magnetic
flux set up by a magnetomotive force, or by which an electromotive
force is produced in a circuit by varying the magnetic field linked with the
circuit. In all these cases, electrical and magnetic fields of one object has
inter-bo dy interactio ns | Chapter 13
been induced or created in nearby objects.
Even if we are not able to detect a magnetic or electrical field generated
by a dark matter object directly, it may be possible, because of electromagnetic
induction, to induce an effect on an ordinarily visible object in certain
circumstances. According to Dr John White and Dr Stanley Krippner the
‘Universal Energy Field’ permeates all space, animate and inanimate objects;
and follows the laws of harmonic inductance and sympathetic resonance.1
The Lowest Energy Super Universe
Apart from induction and sympathetic resonance, the lowest energy super
universe or the lower etheric universe is likely to be implicated for a variety
of effects on our visible universe in the near future. Electric and magnetic
fields generated by the universe’s etheric double orders the large-scale structure
of the visible universe. The physical-etheric body also gives structural
integrity to the human physical-biomolecular body. This super universe is
at the edge of our instruments’ measuring abilities – however the magnetic
and electric fields generated by mega structures within that universe can be
measured through the effects they have on visible matter in our universe. A
good example would be the invisible filaments in the universal web, which
will be discussed in more detail in the next Chapter.
Seeing the Bodies
Respected metaphysicists are generally in agreement that the various invisible
bodies can become visible by tuning into their frequencies – just as you
can tune into a radio or TV program from a particular station by changing
channels (and thereby change frequencies). According to Barbara Brennan,
by changing her ‘higher sense perception’ to different auric vibrational levels
(or frequencies), different levels of the auric field become more clearly
Antennae and Tuners within Super Magma Bodies
Plasma Antennae
A plasma antenna is an antenna that employs plasma as the guiding
medium for electromagnetic radiation. Conventional antennae employ
either metal to support antenna currents necessary for radiating electromagnetic
fields or dielectric materials, such as plastics, to redirect or
reform an electromagnetic wavefront. The plasma antenna concept, on
the other hand, is based on a sealed glass tube containing a gas. When an
electromagnetic pulse is applied to one end of the tube, the energy from
the pulse ionises the gas inside to produce plasma. The high density of
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
electrons within this plasma makes it an excellent conductor of electricity,
just like metal. However unlike metal, once the voltage that creates
the plasma is switched off, the plasma rapidly returns to a neutral gas and
the antenna in effect, disappears. A fluorescent tube can illuminate and
behave as a plasma antenna.
A photonic crystal is to photons (particles of light) what a semiconductor
is to electrons. Photonic crystals reject electromagnetic radiation lying in
certain frequency ranges or ‘bands’ in the same way that semiconductors
reject electrons in certain energy bands. The exclusion comes about by a
careful interleaving of materials with very different indices of refraction. An
antenna mounted on a photonic crystal has been demonstrated by scientists
at the MIT Lincoln Lab and Bellcore.
Elliott Brown of Lincoln Lab and his colleagues built a photonic crystal-
antenna setup which can couple microwave radiation to devices on
integrated circuits. This configuration allows integrated-circuit devices
to receive microwave radiation, or conversely, convert electric current to
microwave signals.3
Super magma bodies in the crystalline state or containing crystalline
components with different indices of refraction make ideal semi-conductors
to filter incoming waves from the electromagnetic magma environment.
Super magma bodies are known to be excellent tuners in the metaphysical
literature. Barbara Brennan explains that it is a common practice for
science to build instruments that filter out extraneous wavelengths and
then to make observations within only a narrow wavelength band.  Observing
the Sun in this way yields pictures of the solar atmosphere at different
heights.  That is how we get pictures of sunspots, or of solar flares, which
look very different from the energy deeper within the Sun or in its outer
layer, the corona. The same principles, she says, can be very useful in auric
field observations.4 This is similar to tuning into different TV channels or
sliding the frequency selector in a radio.
Plasma antennae and tuners within super magma bodies allow the
owners to receive or transmit thoughts, images and sounds from or to
other super magma bodies. Tuners within magma bodies allow the owner
to switch frequencies within a particular band. However, to change bands,
the locus of awareness must switch to a different body. According to Leadbeater,
if a man who has developed astral and causal consciousness focuses
himself in the physical brain as in ordinary life, he will see perfectly the
physical bodies of his friends, and will at the same time see their astral and
causal bodies, but only dimly. In a split second, though, he can change
inter-bo dy interactio ns | Chapter 13
focus so that he will see the astral quite fully and perfectly. In that case, he
will still see the causal and physical bodies, but not in full detail.5 When
the locus of awareness shifts to a particular body, resonating at a different
frequency, a different universe is observed.
Turning Points
Generally, not more than one universe; not more than one body is experienced.
However, at ‘turning-points’ (such as during the death of the bodies
or just before and after sleep) the locus of awareness oscillates between different
bodies – including the magma ovoid bodies and the particle-bodies
(the nuclei) within – giving rise to multiple loci of awareness. Subsequently
on waking, when the sensory systems of a particular body start ‘measuring’
the environment, a particular body and universe is observed. At these turning
points, briefly, more than one body and universe can be experienced at
the same time. ‘Dual consciousness’ has been recorded in the metaphysical
literature during these turning points.
Dual Consciousness
In certain situations, for example, in the prelude to ‘astral travelling’ and in
the initial phases in the death process (including near-death experiences),
dual-consciousness – corresponding to two bodies has been reported.
These are situations when we are straddled between two or more universes;
and have not locked-in or tuned-in into any particular universe.
These universes are superimposed on each other. Medical doctors generally
interpret these types of events as ‘hypnogogic’ or ‘hypnopompic’
hallucinations. Brad Steiger reports that students of astral projection have
frequently commented on the phenomenon of dual consciousness; i.e. they
still have complete awareness of their body, its functions and the room it’s
lying in while they are travelling in their astral to visit a faraway place.6
Hereward Carrington records in ‘Higher Psychical Development’
that Dr Van Eeden of Holland conducted some extremely interesting
experiments upon himself; in his ‘dream body.’ He endeavored to transfer
his locus of awareness to this body, so that he remembered everything
that transpired during sleep. In one case, he remembered clearly that he
was asleep in bed, with his arms folded across his breast; and at the same
time he was looking out through the window and saw a dog run up and
look at him through the glass, and run away again … he had the extreme
sense of ‘duality of consciousness of two bodies.’7 This dual consciousness
can also be experienced from the perspective of a higher energy
dark or subtle body.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Locus of Awareness
Where is the locus of awareness? Analyzing the human (biomolecular) body,
we know that sensory signals from a finger are transmitted via nerves to the
brain – which interprets the signal. Where does consciousness manifest – in
the finger, in the nerve or in the brain? All components are in fact necessary
for consciousness to manifest. If the hand was cut at the wrist, your
sensory awareness would terminate at the stump. If it was cut at the elbow,
your sensory awareness would terminate at that stump.
In the same way, each body is analogous to a ‘stump’ in a sensory system
which sends signals ‘upwards’ for processing. If it cannot be processed
by the brain in the lower-energy body, it is transmitted upwards to the next
body. The information about physical sensations which is attended to by the
physical brain is sent to the astral brain which generates emotions, and the
lower causal brain – which generates concepts.
Nevertheless, you may become aware of your left foot at one moment
and then your right foot a second later. You can also bring your awareness
‘higher’ and be aware of the left and right foot at the same time. In other
words, signals from both the physical and astral bodies can be attended to,
if required, from an even higher energy body.
For complex cognitive activities, the physical brain acts merely as a conduit.
For example, the limbic system in the human brain interacts closely
with not only the endocrine system in the physical body but also the astral
body. The physical-biomolecular brain is mapped onto the astral and causal
bodies. Signals are sent back and forth between these bodies. The quality
of the interface between these bodies is an important factor to take into
account when considering the evolution of intelligence and awareness in a
Each body may be considered the cell-body of a nerve, with an attached
axon (the ‘silver cord’). The axon’s terminals pass relevant signals to the
next body across a synapse. In this way, information is passed on to a higher
body. Similarly, signals may be received from the reverse direction. Based
on this analogy, we are basically nerve cells in a universal body.
Interactions between Bodies
Privacy in the Astral Word
Is your astral body visible to other entities in the astral universe right now,
while you are awake in this universe? According to Leadbeater, most beings
in the astral magmasphere are not aware of our ordinarily visible physical
bodies. They quite clearly and definitely are not aware of ordinary physical
matter of any kind. But they are aware of the astral counterpart
of physiinter-
bo dy interactio ns | Chapter 13
cal matter.8 Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh says that ‘in the entire Existence,’ all
of the bodies are forever present. Awake or asleep, active or dormant, ugly
or beautiful, they are always there. Take a piece of metal: all of the seven
bodies are present in it, but all of the seven are asleep; all of the seven are
dormant and inactive. Take a plant – its first body has become active. There
is the animal: his second body has (also) become activated. In Man, his third
body has (also) become activated. If the fourth body is activated, (re)birth on
higher planes begins.9
The encounters between your astral body and other astral beings would
be rare while you are awake for a number of reasons. Firstly, most human
beings live on the crust of the Earth. This is coincident with only one astral
ring – i.e. the sixth. Most human beings do not stay at this level after the
death of their physical bodies. Secondly, what the beings in the astral magmasphere
see is your astral body – which becomes conspicuous mainly when
you are experiencing strong emotions.
Thirdly, there is a thick electrified sheath or membrane over the magma
ovoid. This offers protection against electromagnetic and other intrusions.
Leadbeater notes that when a person functions in the causal body he leaves
the astral body behind him in a condition of suspended animation, along
with the physical. If he finds it necessary he can easily surround the torpid
astral body with a stronger shell, or he can generate vibrations in it
which will make it impervious to other beings.10 When the physical body
is asleep, he may be functioning in his astral body. If some person in the
physical plane disturbs his body, the physical body reacts and the astral
body is ‘reeled-in’ (by a ‘silver cord’ or a ‘plasma wire’) instantly to escape
the threat. Similarly, when the astral and causal bodies are threatened, it
is possible for the physical body to sense it and react to it by sending off
emotions or thoughts which counter the threat – for example by changing
the strength and the polarity of the electrified sheath around the ovoid to
repel foreign intrusions – in a sense acting like the immunity system in the
biomolecular body.
Quantum-Like Engagements
Fourthly, the rules of engagement used by our super magma bodies in the
astral magmasphere are ‘semi-classical’ or ‘near-quantum’ – not classical, as
in the physical universe. This means that super magma objects or beings
would possess some quantum weirdness. For example, these bodies would
have more pronounced wave characteristics. Also they may be in a superposed
state until observed. Robert Monroe asserts that once he has been
in the presence of a ‘non-physical entity’ (more accurately, super-physical
entity) for a while, it discards its appearance and he perceives nothing,
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
although he continues to sense ‘the radiation that is the entity.’ Several
of Joel Whitton’s patients, who assumed ‘in between life’ states, said they
didn’t even have a body unless they were thinking. One man described it by
saying that if he stopped thinking he was merely a cloud in an endless cloud,
undifferentiated. But as soon as he started to think, he became himself.11
This is no different from an electron wave, which is superposed between
different states, which collapses as a particle when observed. Descartes
statement ‘I think therefore I am’ couldn’t be truer in the quantum-like
astral and causal universes.
Even after collapsing as a body in a particular universe, because they
have quantum characteristics, these bodies may still be difficult to locate
precisely because of uncertainty in their position and momentum – consistent
with Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. The bodies may be in several
places at the same time as they are near macro-quantum objects with probabilistic
measures of existence.
According to Roger Penrose, any physical object, itself made out of individual
particles ought to be able to exist in such superpositions of spatially
widely separated states, and so ‘be in two places at once’! The formalism of
quantum mechanics makes no distinction, in this respect, between single
particles and complicated systems of many particles. He asks, ‘Why, then,
do we not experience macroscopic bodies, say cricket balls, or even people,
having two completely different locations at once?’ According to him, this
is a profound question, and present-day quantum theory does not really
provide us with a satisfying answer.12
According to Ho Mae-Wan, in her article ‘Nature is Quantum, Really!’
the two-slit experiment has been repeated with increasingly massive particles
and essentially the same results have been obtained. She says that if
‘buckyballs’ can show the same interference patterns perhaps it might also
be shown by a small protein. (A ‘bucky ball’ is a molecule of sixty or seventy
atoms of carbon arranged in a structure resembling a geodesic dome.)
A molecule of sixty atoms is a relatively large entity, as compared with an
atom. And yet, the same mysterious interference pattern appeared when
Anton Zeilinger and his colleagues ran their experiments. This demonstrates
that the duality between particles and waves manifests itself even
for larger entities, she says.13 Professor Zeilinger, who leads a group in the
University of Vienna engaged in these experiments, said, when giving the
16th Schrödinger Lecture in London, that his team is planning to try a small
virus next, and is quite confident that it too, will behave as both wave and
particle. There is quite a gap between a virus and a mouse, or a human
being, but Ho Mae-Wan asks:
inter-bo dy interactio ns | Chapter 13
‘Who is to say we are not both a wave spread out in space and
a seemingly solid body that can bump into furniture? Where
does the quantum world stop and the classical start?’14
According to her, Schrödinger would have been astonished by all these
findings if he were alive today. Under the ‘Copenhagen interpretation’ in
quantum physics, the act of measurement ‘collapses’ the quantum superposition.
Recent experiments show, however, that if the connection to a
measurement device is very weak, this collapse would not happen and there
would be macro quantum superpositions. An experiment by Terry Clark
and his team at the University of Sussex in Britain was set up with a weak
measurement system. The results showed that the SQUID ring set up in
their experiment could exist in a quantum superposition of both flux and
charge modes. (The flux and charge modes are two contradictory modes.)15
If ‘Schrödinger’s cat’ was this SQUID, it would mean it would be both alive
and dead at the same time.
When any of these bodies are actualized (i.e. when the locus of awareness
shifts to that body) it means that the particles making up the relevant
bodies and corresponding to the particular sphere and ring materializes and
consciousness appears simultaneously. Hence, a person actualizing himself
in the astral magmasphere will find himself in a particular location in a particular
ring. In our (classical) universe, classical objects do not dematerialize
instantaneously when they are not being actualized or materialize instantaneously
when they are actualized. This is because of the high degree of
decoherence and the entanglement of particles with the environment in this
(physical) sphere. The degree of decoherence reduces dramatically as we
move up to higher-energy quantum-like universes. Materializations and
dematerializations are therefore the norm in higher-energy universes. In
other words, all the bodies are present in every sphere. Some are activated
and some are not. However, it is only when the body is conscious of itself (in
other words, it observes or measures itself) that it actualizes or manifests in
this or that universe. It manifests to interact with others. This is the manifest
interactive-state (as opposed to the non-manifest superposed-state).
When the physical body falls asleep or dies, most human beings
would actually operate within the astral universe. They locate others and
are located by others through their ‘vibratory signature’ i.e. the composite
frequency of their magma body. To a certain extent this is like wearing a
transmitter around your neck or embedded in your body so that you can
constantly be tracked! It is also the same way that your mobile phone works
so you can be contacted even on the move. Nature is way ahead of us in
mobile communications technology!
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Actualization of Macro-Quantum Objects
Does a quantum object exist when we do not observe it? This has been a
vexing question for quantum physicists. Imagine a tree which does not exist
until observed. Let us say it is observed 1 hour apart, how does it interact
with the environment in that 1 hour? We know the environment changes
because of the existence of the tree – water is sucked into its roots, moisture
is added to the atmosphere and solar energy is being converted to biological
energy through photosynthesis. Of course, a tree is a classical object hence
it is already entangled to the environment. But assume a near macro-quantum
body (such as the super magma astral body). This body (with complicated
internal dynamics) must necessarily interact with its environment
even when we are not measuring it directly. If these bodies do not exist in an
absolute sense the universe would not operate. Every part of the universe,
whether being measured or not, is an integral part of the universe. If any
part of the universe does not exist in an absolute sense, the universe does
not exist.
Hence, we cannot conclude that the body does not exist in an absolute
sense when we do not measure it. It exists – it does not exist. Both statements
are true simultaneously. (In this case, Schrödinger’s cat is both alive
and dead.) The measurement process manifests the object relative to our
frame of reference. David Bohm says, ‘We should regard a quantum measurement
as a manifesting process.’16
Actualizing Higher Energy Macro-Quantum Bodies
On this plane, therefore, only the biomolecular body is generally actualized.
The etheric-double is partially actualized. Nevertheless, meditators, ‘astraltravellers’
and metaphysical researchers do actualize higher energy bodies
according to their phase of research. This gives the higher-energy spheres
and universes a ‘private’ quality because things do not manifest unless
someone is conscious of it and dematerializes as soon as attention is drawn
away from it. The rate of materialization or dematerialization decreases as
we move down to lower-energy universes. In our universe, dematerialization
(of the particles) can take as long as the age of the universe. Hence,
things do not disappear if we do not observe them.
A person who is neither attracted nor repelled by any sensations from
any universe does not actualize or materialize in any universe. This also
means that the degree of decoherence has been reduced to zero (or coherence
has reached its maximum). He remains in the implicate void and does
not manifest in any universe. He realises he is not located anywhere.
inter-bo dy interactio ns | Chapter 13
Independent Existences
Does your astral body lead an independent existence apart from the physical
body which you are not aware of? A body may be activated without
you being aware of its existence. While reading this paragraph the reader
would be aware of only his physical-biomolecular body, although he has
already activated his physical-etheric, astral and causal bodies. According
to Leadbeater, a man is using his astral body whenever he expresses an
emotion; he is using his causal body whenever he thinks. But that is very
far from him being able to utilize either of them as independent vehicles
through which consciousness can be fully expressed.17 Bhagwan Shree
Rajneesh says that even if the second body in an animal has begun to
work, it does not mean that the second body has reached awareness: it
only means it has become activated. According to him, there is a difference
between the activation of a body and being consciously aware of it.18
The bodies work as an integrated unit. The thoughts that you are
having now and the emotions you are currently feeling are the thoughts
and emotions of your etheric, astral and causal bodies – although you are
not consciously aware of these bodies. Your pancreas may be carrying out
many complicated functions right now – you have activated it but you are not
consciously aware of it. Even now you may not know its exact location. Its
existence was only brought to your attention through education rather than
direct observation in real-time.
When the physical body goes to sleep, though, the astral body becomes
active when the locus of awareness shifts there. It appears that through relevant
training, a person can consciously operate in his various bodies at will.
There are experimental metaphysicists who believe that the various
bodies do carry out activities that are not directly related to other bodies
(for example, J H Brennan). Both the heart and the kidney in our biomolecular
bodies carry out sophisticated activities outside of our conscious
control normally. Nevertheless, the kidney could not carry out its work if
there was no heart and arterial system supplying nutrients. The heart also
needs the kidney to live. Both appear to work independently but are coordinated
with each other by the brain. Similarly, the activities of the various
bodies appear to be carried out independently while being coordinated by
a higher intelligence.
The locus of conscious awareness, however, is usually located in only
one body at a point in time. During death or sleep the locus of conscious
awareness shifts from one body to another – just as your locus of conscious
awareness can shift from your right hand to your left hand – right now!
According to J H Brennan, there is a possibility that your various bodies are
already separated and active within their own inner worlds.19 However, until
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
conscious awareness is shifted to a particular (subtle) body, the body does
not actualize or materialize in a particular universe.
Effects of Physical Interventions on the Astral Body
If the (physical-biomolecular) arm of a man, the branch of a tree, or the leg
of a chair were cut off, would the astral counterpart also be removed? For
mature life-forms, the astral body would be a coherent whole. If part of the
physical body of the life-form is removed, the coherence of the living astral
matter is stronger than the attraction towards that severed portion of the
physical. Consequently, a substantial portion of the astral counterpart of
the arm or branch will not be carried away with the severed physical fragment
but be retained as part of the astral body – generating the sensation
of a phantom limb. In the case of an inanimate body, such as a chair or
table, on the other hand, there would not be the same kind of individual life
to maintain cohesion. Consequently, when a physical object is broken the
astral counterpart would also be divided.20
Effects of Etheric or Astral Interventions on Physical Body
Biochemical Interventions
Dr Phillipe Collas stated in the April 2002 issue of Nature’s Biotechnology
journal ‘We can take a skin cell from your body and turn it directly into a
cell type that you need to treat a particular disease.’ This is done simply by
bathing the skin cells in extracts of the desired cells. In more preliminary
work, they have made skin cells behave like nerve cells. Scientists currently
do not have a clue on why this happens! Dr Thomas Zwaka of the University
of Wisconsin, a medical doctor and molecular biologist, says that each
cell still ‘remembers’ how to become any kind of cell in the body. Once they
get older, though, cells are programmed and cannot change direction easily
in development. In other words, young cells can change into any type of cell
but older cells, however, would find it more difficult. This was exactly what
Dr Robert Becker found in his experiments with salamanders. Salamanders
are able to regenerate their limbs when they are mutilated. Soon after a
mutilation a ‘blastula’ of undifferentiated cells grows around the wound. In
experiments done by Becker, it was found that if a blastula was surgically
removed from, say, where a hind limb would normally grow and placed next
to a fore limb, a hind limb would grow. But this only happens if sufficient
time elapses before the removal of the blastula. If the blastula was removed
and placed without any delay next to a fore limb, a fore limb grows!21 Here
again we notice that young cells grow into shapes that they are near to or are
in contact with, but older cells retain their old behavior even if they are in a
new environment. Why is this so?
inter-bo dy interactio ns | Chapter 13
Could cells and limbs have dark matter counterparts – just as galaxies
are thought to have? Young cells would not have gathered sufficient
dark matter to determine their fate. An individual life would not have been
developed sufficiently to maintain cohesion. On the other hand, mature cells
are coupled with their already developed dark matter counterparts – making
it difficult to change their course of development. In homeopathy, solutions
of antibodies may be diluted until no physical antibodies can be measured
with our current scientific instruments. Despite this the solution generates
reactions which suggest that antibodies are still present. Some speculate
whether water contains the phantom imprint of the molecules that were
once in it. An etheric double is as good as a ‘phantom imprint.’ Did the
etheric double of the antibody remain in the water? If so, it shows that
you can trigger-off the immune system of the biomolecular body with the
etheric double of an antibody. The invisible etheric double could therefore
induce biochemical changes in our physical-biomolecular bodies. The etheric
double, like dark matter, cannot be directly measured by any scientific
instrument currently.
Physical Interventions
According to Leadbeater, a purely astral object could be moved by means
of an astral hand, if one wished, but not the astral counterpart of a physical
object. To move an astral counterpart it would be necessary to move the
physical object, and then the astral object would accompany it. One could
no more move a physical object by moving its astral counterpart than one
could move the rose by moving its perfume, he says.22
All bodies of matter mutually attract each other through the gravitational
force. The mass and weight of the astral counterpart of a physical
body is usually a negligible percentage of the physical body. If you moved
the Sun, the Earth would follow but if you moved the Earth, the Sun will
not follow. Similarly, generally, if you moved the heavy and dense physicalbiomolecular
body, the astral body would follow but if you moved the astral
body, the physical-biomolecular body will not follow. However, there are
instances when the physical-biomolecular bodies can be moved by higher
energy bodies.
(Human) Levitation
When the locus of awareness shifts to massive higher energy bodies during
waking consciousness (developed through prolonged meditation and/or
prayer) it can pull the biomolecular body along with it. The higher energy
body seeks its own equilibrium point in the relevant magmasphere. Since
these bodies have a net magnetic and electric charge they are pulled within
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
electrified sheaths in the magma environment. During waking consciousness,
the biomolecular body’s linkage with the higher energy bodies has not
been severed (as what happens during death) or temporarily relaxed (as in
sleep). This tug of the etheric body as it tries to soar upwards can be felt.
Saint Theresa (of Avila) describes it as ‘an angel pulling on her.’23 In
these cases, too, quite frequently the locus of awareness can oscillate sporadically
between the biomolecular and higher energy bodies. When a saint
is engrossed in a spiritual experience in a particular heaven while in waking
consciousness, the relevant higher energy body soars towards that electromagnetic
domain (seeking its equilibrium point), pulling the biomolecular
body. Levitation or gravitation (towards electromagnetic domains above
or within the Earth’s crust, respectively) of human magma bodies during
advanced meditation or intense prayer gives us strong indirect evidence of
the existence of higher dark magma bodies, just as a visible star orbiting
around an invisible companion (in binary star systems) gives us evidence of
the existence of dark matter stars.

Formation of Magma Ovoids
Formation of Galaxies versus Human Bodies
How do formless blobs get transformed into something as
complex and beautiful as the Milky Way, with many billions of
stars crowded into a dense, massive hub at the centre, and many
others strung like pearls on the graceful spiral arms that orbit
majestically around the centre?

If galaxies were emerging now, astronomers should have spotted
some objects having sizes and morphologies somewhere between
well-defined galaxies and sheer empty space. We know of no
such nearby, amorphous, ‘half-baked’ objects. Furthermore, the
regions beyond the galaxy clusters—the intergalactic voids—
don’t seem to contain much matter, if any at all. Whenever
and however the galaxies did form, they apparently did so very
efficiently, sweeping up almost all the [normal] matter available
and leaving little behind for further assembly.

According to Anthony Dressler of the Carnegie Observatories, ‘Saying we
understand the broad brush detail of galaxy formation is like saying we
know the bigger process of the birth of a baby.’2 Metaphysicists would be
struck with the similarities in the formation of the physical body in the
human womb, based on traditional metaphysical theories, and the formation
of galaxies, based on recent astrophysical theories. According to the
1998 Annual Report of the MPA (Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics) the
universe is filled by dark matter which regulates the way in which structures
grow from tiny seed perturbations in the early universe.3
The Web of Filaments
Robert Britt says that the early universe contained a series of threads and
clumps, not unlike a spider web dappled with water droplets. This structure
set the stage for the growth of galaxies and galaxy clusters seen today.4 Scientists
think that ordinary and dark matter formed an immense filamentary
web connecting clusters of galaxies in the early universe. This is, of course,
the web of filaments, already discussed (in Chapter 9). Just as the etheric
double of the universe generates a web of filamentary currents (or filaments)
that plays an important part in the large scale structure of the universe, the
etheric double of the human body generates a web of filamentary currents
(or meridians) that is instrumental in developing the physical-biomolecular
body of a human being.
In 1904 Annie Besant reported that ‘during human antenatal life a single
thread weaves a network, a shimmering web of inconceivable fineness
and delicate beauty, with minute meshes. Within the meshes of this web the
coarser particles of the bodies are built together. During physical life, prana
[which is a plasma of charged super particles] courses along the branches
and meshes.’5 This description echoes descriptions of features in cosmic
plasma, already discussed. The growth of a web of filamentary currents in
space, with charged particles coursing through it, is well-known in plasma
Leadbeater reports that astral matter has an attraction for physical matter
and follows very closely the contours of the physical body.6 Robert Britt
says that dark matter and galaxies trace out the same shapes and structures
and they become sculpted into nearly identical sheets and filaments, with
vast expanses of near-nothingness in between.7 If astral matter is dark matter,
then we are forced to conclude that some human beings (and possibly
a variety of animals) can see dark matter using their higher-energy bodies;
even if our current scientific instruments cannot.
In 1910 Annie Besant compared the formation of the Solar System to
the process that goes on during the birth of a baby. She explained that the
formatio n of magm a ovoi ds | Chapter 14
process of individualization (in this context, the formation of the human
body on the physical plane and within the various magma ovoids) is analogous
to the building of the Solar System. She says, ‘Out of the primeval
matter of space, a slight mist first appears; the mist grows gradually denser
as the particles aggregate more closely (i.e. they start ‘clumping’ like cold
dark matter); eventually shapes are formed within the mist which become
more and more definite, until a system is formed.’8 This description echoes
scientific descriptions of the interaction of cold dark matter and ordinarily
visible matter. Stuart Clark says, in the New Scientist journal, ‘The filaments
signpost the location of dark matter because the hot gas sits in its
gravitational influence like mist in a valley.’9 Where the filaments intersect,
galaxies form (generating definite forms in the mist).
The Universal and Human Physical-Etheric Bodies
The similarities between the theory governing the formation of the universe,
according to Science, and the metaphysical descriptions of the formation
of a physical-etheric body as a precursor to the biomolecular body is
evident. The invisible web of filaments together with the dark matter that
shapes them is in fact the lowest energy physical-etheric body of our universe.
When we look out from Earth what we are seeing is the physical universe,
shaped by the lower etheric body of the universe, each galaxy being
shaped by an invisible gigantic chakra.
Astronomers say that the invisible filaments in space are detected
only because higher density matter tends to accumulate and condense in
these filaments. Similarly, the invisible chakra behind the galaxy is seen
only because of higher density matter that accumulates and condenses in it.
Galaxies (which are largely plasma bodies) are responsive to higher energy
electromagnetic fields in the universe’s etheric double. An invisible dark
matter Sun behind the visible Sun has already been noted by Blavatsky (see
Chapter 1). The formation of a variety of galaxies and their distribution in
the universe is still a mystery to Science.
Black Holes
Black holes, like filaments are invisible. They are detected only because of
their effects on visible (or measurable) radiation and matter. The classic
view of black holes conjures images of gas and stars and even light being
swallowed; and is associated with the collapse of dying stars. But black holes
also create powerful (invisible) high-speed jets that race at nearly lightspeed
into surrounding space to ignite star formation. Wil van Breugel and
Steve Croft of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory studied one
of these jets slicing through a puzzling region of intense star formation
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
known as Minkowski’s Object. The jet, they say, caused a dense gas cloud
to collapse to trigger the birth of a star. The finding meshes nicely with a
growing body of evidence suggesting that black holes are integral players
in galaxy formation. Black holes have also been conjectured to exist in the
centre of galaxies – including our own.
Croft says that the formation of massive black holes is critical to the
formation of new galaxies. Robert Britt says that interviews with more than
a half dozen experts reveals black holes as galactic sculptors. Black holes are
shown to be fundamental forces in the development of the ultimate shapes
of galaxies and the distribution of stars in them. Meg Urry, an astronomer
and professor of physics at Yale University says, ‘We believe black holes also
play a critical role in the birth of galaxies.’ There is evidence that galaxies
actually did form around the earliest black holes. In 2000, astronomers
found solid evidence that black holes lurk deep inside many and probably
all galaxies that have the classic central bulge of stars. Further, an analysis
showed a direct correlation between the mass in each black hole and the
shape and scope of the bulge and the overall size of the galaxy.
This suggests that the ‘invisible chakras’ behind galaxies (as discussed
in the preceding section) are in fact what scientists would identify as black
holes or vortexes in space. When invisible filaments in space pinch, they
collapse as invisible black holes and start to rotate when they suck in particles
and matter from the ordinarily visible (or measurable) physical universe.
(This process is identical to the formation of meridians and chakras
in magma bodies.) Black holes are by definition dark matter (since they are
invisible to our current measuring instruments). Ordinary matter has an
affinity to dark matter and rotates with it forming galaxies.
Surprisingly, therefore, the study of the large scale structure of the
universe has a direct relevance to the study of the formation of the human
etheric body (and vice-versa). The formation of a web of filaments and vortexes
in the physical-etheric body of a human being precedes the construction
of a physical-biomolecular body. In the same way, the formation of an
invisible web of filaments and vortexes in the physical-etheric body of the
universe precedes the formation of the large scale structure of the physical
universe. Unlike bodies associated with life-forms on Earth, however,
the universe does not have a biomolecular body accreting on its higher
energy bodies. There are only isolated spots in the universe, for example,
our Earth, which has a biomolecular component attached to the higher
energy bodies.
As discussed previously, meridians represent filaments through which
charged particles flow in the super magma etheric double. Since dark matter
interacts weakly with ordinary matter (assuming similar volumes of the
formatio n of magm a ovoi ds | Chapter 14
matter), the measurable global electromagnetic field of the electromagnetic
etheric double is weak. Nevertheless, these weak electromagnetic fields have
been found in numerous experiments to have a significant effect on biochemical
activities in cells. According to Valerie Hunt, beyond the electrical
frequencies of muscle, brain and heart, there is another field of energy,
smaller in amplitude and higher in frequency. This electromagnetic energy
is eight to ten times faster than the other biological electricity sampled from
the body’s surface, but only about one-half to one-third as strong as the
millivoltage of a resting muscle.10
Living Plasma Bubbles
David Cohen reports in the journal ‘New Scientist’ that plasma blobs hint at
a new form of life.11 Physicists, Erzilia Lozneanu and Mircea Sanduloviciu,
have created plasma spheres that can grow, replicate and communicate – fulfilling
most of the traditional requirements for biological cells. They are
convinced that these curious spheres offer a radically new explanation of
how life began and were precursors to biochemical evolution.12
Most biologists think living cells arose out of a complex and prolonged
evolution of chemicals that took millions of years, beginning with simple
molecules through amino acids, primitive proteins and finally forming an
organised structure. But according to Sanduloviciu and his colleagues at
Cuza University in Romania cell-like self-organisation can occur in a few
microseconds in a plasma environment. The researchers studied environmental
conditions similar to those that existed on Earth before life began,
when the planet was enveloped in electrical storms that caused plasmas to
form in the atmosphere.
Lozneanu and Sanduloviciu inserted two electrodes into a chamber
containing a plasma of argon – an ionised environment similar to the super
etheric, astral and causal plasma environments. They applied a high voltage
to the electrodes, producing an arc of energy that flew across the gap
between them, like a miniature lightning strike. Sanduloviciu says this electric
spark caused a high concentration of ions and electrons to accumulate
at the positively charged electrode, which spontaneously formed spheres.
The amount of energy in the initial spark governed their size and lifespan of
the spheres. Sanduloviciu grew spheres from a few micromtres up to three
centimetres in diameter.13
The Plasma Cell
According to Lozneanu and Sanduloviciu each plasma sphere had a boundary
made up of two layers – an outer layer of negatively charged electrons
and an inner layer of positively charged ions. A distinct boundary layer that
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
confines and separates an object from its environment is an important characteristic
of a living cell, they say. The boundary plays an important role in
the absorption and transformation of energy14 – much like the auric ‘shell’ or
‘sheath’ of super magma bodies. Trapped inside the boundary was an inner
nucleus of gas atoms. A negatively charged luminous sheet surrounds a positive
nucleus. An electric field appears between the boundary and nucleus,
within which electrons are accelerated. The evolved sphere appears as a
stable, self-confined, luminous and nearly spherical body. Lozneanu and
Sanduloviciu describe a rhythmic ‘inhalation’ of the nucleus which mimics
the breathing process of living systems.15
Life Signs
Sanduloviciu found that the spheres could replicate by splitting into two.
Under the right conditions they got bigger, taking up neutral argon atoms
and splitting them into ions and electrons to replenish their boundary layers.
Finally, they could communicate information by emitting electromagnetic
energy, making the atoms within other spheres vibrate at a particular
frequency. ‘This is no different from the vibrating diaphragm in a telephone
which enables information to be communicated from one point to another,’
says David Cohen.16
Pre-requisite for Biochemical Evolution
According to Sanduloviciu, plasma spheres are the first cells on Earth,
arising within electric storms, and he believes that the emergence of such
spheres is a prerequisite for biochemical evolution. Gregoire Nicolis, a physical
chemist at the University of Brussels, says that view is ‘stretching the
realms of possibility.’ In particular, he doubts that biomolecules such as
DNA could emerge at temperatures at which the plasma balls exist.17
This could be a criticism of the Lozneanu and Sanduloviciu theory if
we considered both the plasma sphere and the biochemical cell to be in the
same universe. However, plasma blobs, bubbles or spheres formed in the
super etheric, astral and causal universes, can effectively mould and provide
structural integrity to a biochemical cell through ‘subtle electromagnetic
interactions’ with the lower etheric double which is close in frequency to the
ordinary physical universe.
The plasma sphere, like ball lightning, ceases after a relatively short
lifetime under current conditions on the (low-energy) physical Earth, say
Lozneanu and Sanduloviciu. They argue, however, that this was probably
not the case when the spheres were created by a simple spark in the ionised
environment that existed in prebiotic Earth – occurring in a medium presumed
to be a plasma.18 They would, therefore, thrive in the current ionised
formatio n of magm a ovoi ds | Chapter 14
environments of the etheric, astral and causal Earths.
The magma etheric body is the precursor of the biomolecular body – as
pointed out by many metaphysicists. According to Barbara Brennan, the
etheric body consists of an energy matrix upon which the physical matter
of the body tissues is shaped and anchored. According to her, the physical
tissues exist as such only because of the field behind them; that is, the field
is prior to, not a result of, the physical body. This relationship, she says,
has been supported by Dr John Pierrakos and her, through the use of their
‘higher sense perception.’19
Sanduloviciu says that the cell-like spheres could be at the origin of
other forms of life we have not yet considered. ‘There could be life out there,
but not as we know it’ he says.20 Indeed, there are magma-based life-forms
in the very high-frequency astral and causal universes which current Science
has hardly begun to explore. It simply does not have the instruments
for it currently, unlike human beings who have operated higher energy bodies
for a very long time. Sanduloviciu’s conclusions throw light on how life
and entities can form in the super magma environments of the astral and
causal universes.
Morphogenesis occurs in each Sphere
The Spark of Life
In ‘in vitro’ fertilizations the human embryo is given an electrical jolt to
spark-off cell division. The purpose of this electrical intervention – which
is a routine procedure in growing human embryos outside the womb, is
not known to Science. Sanduloviciu findings support the view that this
electrical intervention is required to form magma bubbles in the super
magma environments of the etheric, astral and causal universes, prior to
cell division.
Bubble Formation
After the electrical intervention, either in or outside the womb, a cascade
of self-organisation occurs – an etheric magma bubble forms around the
embryo, followed by astral and causal bubbles – each tiny bubble interpenetrating
the other. Each spherical liquid-crystal bubble has a boundary made
up of two layers – an outer layer of charged particles with one polarity and an
inner layer of charged particles with the opposite polarity. Trapped inside
the boundary is a vibrating nucleus of super particles. Between the nucleus
and the boundary is an electric field.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Development of the Bubble into an Ovoid
It is interesting to note that according to scientists, dark matter formed the
universe’s first structures, where mysterious acausal ‘quantum seeds’ (or
‘seed perturbations’) caused matter to clump more densely in certain spots.
Dark matter slid into these spots which grew into structures that merged to
become giant clouds – or haloes – with millions or trillions times more mass
than the Sun.
Similarly, the vibrating nuclei in the tiny magma bubbles causes dark
matter (which includes astral and causal matter) to clump and magma
ovoids to form. According to Annie Besant, when the permanent particles
(the nuclei of magma bodies make up one category of permanent particles)
start to vibrate, they act as magnets, drawing around themselves matter of
a frequency similar to their own. In the early stages, there is a loose cloud
of matter around the permanent particles.21 The matter is then absorbed
into the magma ovoid, filling up the space between the nucleus and the
sheath. Q-Balls, representing various elements and other super particles
fill the space between the vibrating nucleus and the double-layered sheath
in the bubbles – forming something similar to the electrical cytoplasm in a
biological cell. The space in between then expands with the steady infusion
of energy and materials from the ionised plasma environment, forming
a larger magma ovoid. The density of the dark matter absorbed rapidly
increases as we approach the centre of the ovoid.
Vertical currents then develop between the dense core of super particles
and the sediments of super particles (of opposite polarity) at the
top and bottom of the ovoid in the enlarged magma ovoid. This induces
a magnetic field and additional (vertical) channels for the super particles
to flow. Through the ‘Zeeman effect’ the light of the nucleus splits into
several electromagnetic components, pulsating at different frequencies,
which draw the central channels together. As the channels pinch, they collapse
as magnetic nodes. Charged particles from the environment rush into
these nodes – causing cone structures and rotating accretion disks (or the
chakras) to form on the surface of the magma bodies. Meridians emanate
from the nodes to vital areas in the magma ovoid to supply energy absorbed
by chakras to these areas.
Permanent Particles and Quantum Seeds
Besant says that the permanent particles are scattered throughout the vegetable
and mineral kingdoms, though the reasons governing their distribution
are not yet clearly understood. A permanent atom, for example, may
be found in a pearl, a ruby or a diamond; many will be found scattered in
veins of ore. But on the other hand, much mineral substance and shortformatio
n of magm a ovoi ds | Chapter 14
lived plants, do not seem to contain any permanent atoms, according to
her. However, in long-lived plants, such as trees, permanent atoms are
constantly found. At the moment, she says, our knowledge on these matters
is extremely fragmentary.22 In other words, these particles appear to
be distributed randomly or in an apparently acausal distribution – a similar
description given by scientists regarding quantum seeds in the early universe
which triggered cold dark matter to clump. Even scientists describe
these quantum seeds as ‘mysterious’!
The ‘Unicellular’ Magma Ovoid
Ball Lightning
According to Lozneanu and Sanduloviciu the plasma sphere, initiated by a
spark and self-assembled in a plasma environment, is similar to ball lightning
– which has been described in the literature as a ‘giant cell.’
The Biological Cell
Just like ball lightning, the magma ovoid can be described as a ‘giant cell.’
In many ways, the plasma sphere and our magma ovoid bodies resemble
biological cells. Just like the magma ovoid, the biological cell in a human
body has a membrane, a nucleus and filaments. Inside the cell, between
the nucleus and the membrane, there is a large fluid-filled space called the
cytoplasm. The cytoplasm, which contains many salts, is an excellent conductor
of electricity. Its watery component can change from a gel-like solid
to liquid and vice-versa – just like liquid-crystal magma ovoids. The nucleus
in the biological cell often flows with the cytoplasm changing its shape as
it moves.

Formation of the Physical-
Biomolecular Body
Weaknesses in a purely Biochemical Theory
Gene Expression – What is activated and what is not?
‘Junk DNA ’ which makes up 97% of the human genome does not seem to
have any purpose in morphogenesis. The modern version of Darwin’s evolutionary
theory is that through a process of random mutations, genes give
rise to a diversity of life-forms. But even mutations will not be expressed if it
is part of junk DNA. So it seems that the more important mechanism is that
which selects which part of the DNA should be junk and which part should
be expressed. Remember, this mechanism has already decided that 97% of the
DNA in the human genome will not be used. And scientists have no clue currently
on why this should be so. According to Gerald Schroeder, the concept
of a latent library (of junk DNA ) posits a mechanism very different from the
classical theory of evolution where random mutations provide the changes in
The question as to how identical cells differentiate into specific cells for
the liver, brain, skin and other organs in a developing human embryo is still a
scientific mystery. If all cells of an embryo arise from identical cells dividing,
they must all be carrying identical genes and cytoplasm. How is it, then, that
formatio n of th e ph ysic al-biomo lecu lar bo dy | Chapter 15
a newborn baby is composed of not only billions of cells, but a multitude of
different cell types: skin, nerve, muscles and so on?
Apparently, it is the activation of certain genes and the deactivation of
others in different cells of the body which leads to the creation of different
types of tissues. How does the cell ‘know’ which genes to turn on and which
genes to turn off? What selects the genes to be expressed in a particular
cell? Science has been telling us that the diversity in life-forms is produced
by the interaction of random mutations in genes and the environment. Yet
it must be remembered that only the mutated genes that are not considered
‘junk DNA ’ and which are activated will have an effect on the final structure
of the life form. If there are master control genes controlling these activations,
what controls these genes?
Human Beings vs. Roundworms
The human genome is estimated to have more than 30,000 to 40,000 genes.
The estimates are surprising because it means that complex human beings
have only about 50 per cent more genes than the simple roundworm, which
has about 19,000. Dr Sean Eddy, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute assistant
investigator at Washington University, in an interview with the New
York Times said: ‘It’s starting to look like there’s a lot of stuff going on
beyond the core set of 30,000 genes.’ Scientists also believe that there is
something unique about primate eggs that make cloning monkeys or people
even more difficult than cloning other animals.
The Final Form is not Solely Determined by Genes
Researchers at Texas A&M University cloned a cat in 2001, only to find that
the clone did not resemble the original. Both cats have identical DNA , but
different coat markings distinguish the original ‘Rainbow’ and her clone
‘cc’ as their bodies use the same genes differently. Rainbow is a typical calico
with splotches of brown, tan and gold on white. Her clone, cc (for carbon
copy), has a striped grey coat over white. Rainbow is reserved while cc
is curious and playful. Rainbow is chunky; cc is sleek. In other words, you
can clone your favorite cat, but the copy will not necessarily act or even look
like the original. In this case, they are practically worlds apart in terms of
appearance and temperament. The strong correlation between genes and
the final life-form in the popular conception is therefore not as strong as
many geneticists make it out to be.
A Stanford group led by Steven Chu in 1998 had observed physically
identical molecules behaving differently under seemingly identical conditions.
Inside a microscopic fluid cell, coiled DNA strands experiencing
the same flow currents unravel in a host of radically different ways – some140
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
times forming kinks in the middle, others forming knots at one or both
ends, and others getting caught up in a folded shape as they try to unfold.
Chu attributes this phenomenon to tiny fluctuations in the initial conditions
– such as a small temperature change in the fluid of the cell. Deterministic
chaos is evident in embryogenesis.
Need for Inter-Cellular and Inter-Organ Communication
In micro-organisms genetic material is not bound to proteins and is in
direct contact with the cytoplasm. In our cells, however, the DNA is not
only bound up in proteins but is separated from the rest of the cell by a
nuclear membrane. The products of synthesis in human cells must cross
through the nuclear membrane to the nucleoplasm if they are to serve as
metabolic signals for gene action. In other words, there is a greater need for
intra-cellular communication in cells of higher (more complex) organisms.
How do cells communicate with each other to form a complete 3-dimensional
human being? Furthermore, many traits found in complex organisms
are the result of the interaction of many different genes. These genes
need not be closely linked or even linked at all.
Anna Pai argues that multi-cellularity adds another dimension of
complexity to the picture. We know that in the development of embryos
in complex organisms such as vertebrates, there is definitely inter-cellular
communication, which is absolutely essential for normal development.
In other words, besides the cell’s own genetic machinery there is control
over the cell by external factors generated by other cells. Experiments have
shown that inter-cellular communication is the rule rather than the exception
during embryogenesis in higher (more complex) organisms. In addition
to the communication between cells, the normal development of higher
organisms also involves a complex and dynamic relationship between different
organ systems.2
Maintenance of Body Form
Cells are created and then die constantly; yet the body’s form is retained.
In fact, all the cells in our body are completely replaced every seven years.
How do cells know what to grow into? Is it plausible that the complex and
chaotic conditions that existed during the genesis of specific cells during
birth are replicated each time a cell is damaged or aged and needs to be
replaced? Oldfield and Coghill question, ‘When we cut our finger, what
makes the fingerprint cells grow and heal exactly where they were before?
How is it that, even though every cell in the human body has changed
in six months, we can instantly recognise the face of a friend whom
we bump into after a year’s absence?’3 In 1955, the American physicist
formatio n of th e ph ysic al-biomo lecu lar bo dy | Chapter 15
Richard Feynman asked, ‘The atoms in our brain are being replaced; the
ones that were there before have gone away. So what is this mind of ours,
these atoms of consciousness... which remembers what was going in my
mind a year ago?’
Harold Burr says that in building life forms, the ‘fields of life’ (or Lfields)
override the normal laws of chemistry and physics. They compel
atoms and molecules to assume – and retain through constant changes of
material – stable arrangements, which break down to simpler compounds
after the death of the form. If not for this ‘overriding authority’ of the Lfields
you and I could not exist in our present form.4
Another theory which supports this approach is Rupert Sheldrake’s
concept of morphic resonance. According to Sheldrake, his concept of
morphic resonance and fields had grown out of the notion in developmental
biology of ‘morphogenic fields’ – an idea which dates back to the
1920s in the work of biologists A Gurwitsch and Paul Weiss. In modern
developmental biology these fields are usually regarded as mathematical
abstractions with no causal effect (in the same way that some regard the
wavefunction in quantum mechanics). By contrast, Sheldrake interprets
them to be ‘causal fields’ with an inherent memory given by morphic resonance.
Deepak Chopra gives us a good example of how well forms are maintained.
He says that if a doctor takes a patient’s X-ray image and discovers
a malignant tumor; then a year later takes another X-ray image and the
same tumor shows up, the doctor is not accurate in calling it the same
cancer, because the cells that showed up the year before have been entirely
replaced. What he is really seeing is the result of a memory that has persisted,
reincarnating again and again in a new tumor.6
What is a cell, then? It is a memory that has built some matter
around itself. Your body is the place your memory calls home.
Deepak Chopra 7
Sheldrake believes that invisible, but nonetheless pervasive ‘morphic
fields’ are responsible for both the shape and behavior of all things, from
atoms to zebras, organising them much as a magnetic field lines up iron
filings. These fields broadcast across time and space, a phenomenon he
calls morphic resonance. A carrot seed grows into the shape of a carrot
because it is directed by the cumulative morphic resonance of all previous
carrots. A million blind African termites build a 10-foot-tall nest, featuring
top-to-bottom ventilation shafts and other complex architectures, because
they are guided by the morphic resonance of previous termite nests. A
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
newspaper crossword puzzle is easier to solve late in the day, because the
morphic resonance broadcast by thousands of successful solvers facilitates
the task. A dog anticipates its owner’s return because the bond they forge
through close association is what Sheldrake terms a ‘social’ morphic field,
which stretches, but does not break when they are apart (much like etheric
A frequent critique of Sheldrake’s work is that the fields he posits seem
to be undetectable – his experiments and research may (or may not) imply
their existence but do not indicate what morphic fields or resonance actually
are. With the existence of dark matter now under serious consideration,
Sheldrake’s fields look something more like a dark body or field.
Sheldrake’s theory echoes detailed metaphysical theories which state
that thought-forms are generated on higher energy planes. Similar thoughtforms
form clusters, resonate and influence each other. These interactions
have been discussed in detail by Leadbeater and Annie Besant8 and commented
on by other metaphysicists, including Barbara Brennan.9
Sheldrake doesn’t dispute that genes play a role in morphogenesis, but
he insists that the hope that biochemistry will yield the whole story is naive.
‘…there is more to development than making the right proteins in the right
cells at the right times,’ he says. The shapes cells assume and the forms
of tissues, organs, and the whole animal – i.e. the morphogenesis – are not
explained by protein synthesis alone. Genes, he says, ‘tune’ a system to one
morphic field or another in much the same way that flipping a television’s
channel selector determines which programs it receives.
Leonard Ravitz says that electric fields (which were earlier postulated
by Raymond Burr and Dr Northrop and differ from the alternating-current
electric output of the brain and the heart, as well as epiphenomenal
skin-resistance) serve as an electronic matrix to keep the corporeal form in
The Role of Electromagnetic Fields
Effect of Electromagnetic Fields on the Biomolecular Body
It has been found that even weak electromagnetic fields affect gene
expression in a top-down process. According to Johnjoe McFadden, weak
electromagnetic fields have been shown to have surprising effects on biological
systems – from making nematode worms grow faster to changing gene
expression levels or preventing ‘cell suicide.’11 Harry Oldfield and Roger
Coghill, quoting Kenyon, say that minute electrical potentials co-ordinate
the balance of electrical activity in the brain. By comparison a nerve action
potential can be enormous. They believe that monitoring subtle changes in
electromagnetic activity can be useful.12
formatio n of th e ph ysic al-biomo lecu lar bo dy | Chapter 15
Very small energy changes in magnetic fields are of major
biological importance.
Harry Oldfield and Roger Coghill,
quoting Kenyon 13
Scientific experiments have shown that weak electromagnetic fields can
have profound effects on biochemical fields. In experiments with humans
reported many years ago, frequencies at 6.6 hertz were found to cause
depression; 11 hertz caused agitation and rioting; 8 hertz created feelings of
elation; and frequencies below 6.26 hertz caused confusion and anxiety.
Also, green, blue, and red color perceptions were intensified when electrodes
were placed on the temples and people were exposed to low voltages
at 42.5 and 77 hertz. Some studies found that certain fields increased general
visual sensitivity but reduced color perception. This clearly shows that
electromagnetic fields can interact with biochemical fields in and around
cells to induce biochemical activities – in this case to generate the relevant
neurotransmitters to cause specific emotional states and perceptions – in
conjunction with operations in higher-energy bodies.
Leonard Ravitz says that countless experiments have demonstrated
that electric fields serve basic functions, controlling growth and morphogenesis,
maintenance and repair of living things. He says such studies throw
a wet blanket on scientific dogma which still asserts that the human body
is principally a chemical product derived from ‘the mystical activities of the
DNA molecule.’
Colin McCaig of the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, looked at rat
corneas. In an undamaged cornea, cells pump positive ions into the cornea
and push negative ions out, creating an electrical potential (or voltage) of 40
millivolts. In damaged areas, this voltage disappears, setting up an electric
field between damaged and intact areas along the surface of the injured
cornea. The researchers used a variety of chemicals to nullify or enhance
the natural field. Dividing cells tend to line up at right angles to the electric
field. When the fields were nullified, the cells positioned themselves randomly.
This finding provides clear evidence that electromagnetic fields are
required for positional order in the biomolecular body. Healing was faster
when the field was boosted and slower when it was decreased. Stronger
fields also encouraged cells to divide – leading to growth.
McCaig says that the work is the first (rigorous) demonstration that
the body’s natural electric fields play a key role in healing and providing a
positional reference grid in which biochemical activities can take place with
purposeful outcomes. The research has been reported to the ‘Proceedings
of the National Academy of Sciences.’14

The Electronic Matrix
The electromagnetic field that Robert Becker measured is a field generated
not by the biomolecular body (which as Science has argued no conceivable
means to generate a global electromagnetic field). The voltage gradients in
fact belong to the lower electromagnetic etheric double. The etheric double
is composed of super particles just beyond the physical-biomolecular body.
As such it is at the edge of the measuring capabilities of today’s scientific
Burr concludes that the fate of any group of cells in an embryo is not
only genetically conditioned, but is also the result of the position of that
group of cells in the biological whole. The fate of any group of cells is determined
in part by the positions those cells occupy in the electro-dynamic
field in the embryo.15 Liquid-crystals have long range orientational order.
In the crystalline state it also has positional order.16 The liquid-crystal electromagnetic
etheric double in its crystalline state can offer a 3d coordinate
system for biochemical activities to take place.
According to Franklin Harold, forms cannot be explicitly engraved
in the genome; they are remote implications of the genetic instructions,
each arising by the collaboration of numerous gene products distributed
in space. He says that a spatially extended dynamic field generated by the
cell as a whole is an obligatory intermediate between genes and form. Its
function is to organise gene action in space: the morphogenetic field is the
agency that defines the pathways of molecular transport and positioning,
and ultimately localises the forces that shape the cell. The fields that guide
morphogenesis should themselves be products of variation and selection.17
Genes appear to project a weak electromagnetic field which betrays a
3-dimensional form that some can see. In fact, the subtle radiation with
embedded holographic information observed by scientists at the Russian
Academy of Sciences may in fact be picking up this form in their measurements.
18 (These findings will be discussed shortly.) Metaphysicists believe
that the development of the physical body is guided by the lowest energy
etheric-double – the closest dark matter body to the biomolecular component
of the physical body. The etheric double, being a super magma body,
is an ‘electromagnetic body.’
According to Leadbeater, the etheric double is actually built in advance
by a ‘thought-form.’ ‘Clairvoyants sometimes see this doll-like little figure
hovering about, and afterwards within the body of the mother.’19 In
Burr’s experiments with plant seedlings, he discovered electrical fields
which resembled the eventual adult plant. He also discovered that salamanders
possessed an energy field shaped like an adult salamander, and
that this blueprint even existed in an unfertilized egg. He found that young
formatio n of th e ph ysic al-biomo lecu lar bo dy | Chapter 15
salamanders were surrounded by an electrical field of the same size as an
adult salamander. He also found that electrical fields surrounding sprouts
did not correspond to the form of the seeds but to the form of the grown
Barbara Brennan says that through higher sense perception, she has
observed that an energy field matrix in the shape of a leaf is projected by a
plant prior to the growth of a leaf, and then the leaf grows into that already
existing form.21 Human morphogenesis, just like the morphogenesis of galaxies
and the universe as a whole, is guided by dark matter – in the form of
the electromagnetic etheric body. According to Ron Cowen (Science News
Online, Oct 13, 2001), scientists believe that dark matter provided the gravitational
scaffolding necessary for the first galaxies to coalesce when the
universe was less than a billion years old.
According to Johannes Fisslinger, an American research institute conducted
a series of experiments which established a connection between
its electromagnetic results and the aura. Using these results, the Institute
was able to develop photographic representations of the aura. Fine sensors
scan and measure the electromagnetic field. The values were correlated to
frequencies and colors – which were corroborated independently by ‘clairvoyants’
or ‘sensitives’ who claim to be able to see the auras.22 Here again
we see a significant relationship between the electromagnetic fields that
Burr and Robert Becker studied and the higher-energy bodies composed of
dark matter. It suggests that electromagnetic dark matter bodies guide the
morphogenesis of the biomolecular body and can be seen by at least some
people – using their higher energy magma bodies.
While the biomolecular body may not be suitable for long-range interorgan
and inter-cellular communication, long-range correlations abound in
super magma bodies – enabling morphogenesis of these bodies to take place
at a much faster rate. According to Anthony Peratt, the axial current flow in
galactic filaments produces a long range interactive force on other galactic
filaments.23 Similarly, the web of meridians within the etheric body generates
long range interactive forces to guide the morphogenesis of the biomolecular
body by aiding inter-cellular and inter-organ communications. But
how do genes impart design to the electromagnetic etheric body?
Effect of Genes on Electromagnetic Fields
In measuring the L-fields of plants Burr found that the change of a single
gene in the parent stock produces profound changes in the voltage-pattern.
He found it remarkable that the change of a single gene in the parent stock
should produce such profound and significant change in the overall pattern
of the voltage differences. He believes that there is a very close relationship
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
between the genetic constitution and the electrical pattern and that it is
probable that one of the ways chromosomes impart design is through the
medium of an electro-dynamic field.
He says, ‘Wherever we made electrical measurements of living systems
we found voltage gradients; and in all our experiments we found that voltage
gradients in living systems, without exception, are organised in patterns.’24
Everyone knows that the forms of cells and organisms are strictly inherited,
and can be altered by mutation with specific and reproducible effects.
Yet how can a one-dimensional gene effectively project a three-dimensional
body or field?
Can DNA project a thought-hologram in super universes?
We know that DNA has fractal properties, but is the structure of the lifeform
holographically encoded in DNA ? There is in fact evidence that DNA
may contain holographic information. Marcer’s holographic ‘DNA -wave
biocomputer’ theory concludes that the 3-dimensional holographic image
data of an organism is stored in the holographic gratings between the two
helices of DNA. Illuminating the DNA with a laser beam can be expected
to generate radiation which carries the holographic information.25 According
to Marcer, experiments conducted at the Russian Academy of Sciences,
confirm that DNA is capable of both encoding and decoding holographic
Separately, subtle radiation containing holographic information from
DNA was observed in experiments at the Russian Academy of Sciences as
a surprise effect during experiments measuring the vibrational modes of
DNA in solution using a sophisticated laser photon correlation spectrometer.
Russian scientists at the Russian Academy of Sciences had measured
this bioenergy without immediately realising its holographic nature.
According to Sue Benford, their research suggests the existence of a
subtle radiation linked to physical DNA that may support the hypothesis of
an intact energy field containing relevant ‘organismal information’ that is
capable of being coupled to an optical imaging device. The Russian experiments,
in fact, produced different measurements when DNA was present
and removed from the scattering chamber. These results were contrary to
the expectations of the experimenters. After duplicating the initial experiment
many times with re-calibrated equipment, the scientists were forced
to accept the working hypothesis that some new field structure was being
excited from the physical vacuum.26
Perhaps this can be explained by concluding that the dark matter counterparts
of the ‘one-dimensional’ gene generates multidimensional holograms
(or ‘thought-forms’ in metaphysical literature) in the coherent light
formatio n of th e ph ysic al-biomo lecu lar bo dy | Chapter 15
of the etheric, astral and causal universes, based on the holographic codes
in DNA , within the etheric, astral and causal magma bubbles – providing
etheric, astral and causal blueprints to guide the growth of the relevant
bodies in the relevant universes. (The etheric blueprint would manifest as
subtle radiation observed by the Russian scientists.) (This is quite similar
to images being generated in higher energy universes based on the holographic
encoding in the brain, discussed in Chapter 10.)
If this is so, then all the structures associated with the DNA through
thousands of millions of years of evolution, should be projected. This is
exactly what Barbara Brennan observed. She says that ‘the (higher) template
body contains all the forms that were generated within the backdrop
of “solid space.”’27 In metaphysics, space is frequently considered perfectly
symmetric (it would therefore appear as a contradictory ‘full’ vacuum from
our perspective) and the asymmetric holographic forms are ‘extracted’ from
this space. The holographic form of the primate body within magma bubbles
attract and sculpt the various types of matter into a semblance of the
human primate body complete with internal organs.
Affinity between Ordinary and Dark Matter
According to Robert Britt, studies show that both ordinary and dark matter
work in concert to build the web of filaments in space, with dense junctions
where galaxies cluster together. Studies show that on large cosmic
scales dark matter and galaxies trace out the same shapes and structures.
‘They become sculpted into nearly identical sheets and filaments, with vast
expanses of near-nothingness in between.’28 This shows an affinity between
the two types of matter.
As pointed out earlier (in Chapter 4), Julio F Navarro of the University
of Victoria in British Columbia suspects that interactions between ordinary
matter and dark matter underlie the variety of dark matter halo structures
of galaxies. Dark matter has been regarded by scientists as something that
gives structure to ordinary matter. However, he says, near the centres of galaxies,
ordinary matter is calling the shots and pushing dark matter around.
There is, therefore, a co-operative process between dark and ordinarily visible
matter in the formation of structures (both dark and visible).
Describing the formation of the astral body, Leadbeater says that, initially,
the mass of astral matter is not yet formed into a definite astral body
but takes ‘the shape of that ovoid which is the true shape of the causal
body.’ Subsequently, when a little body (interpreted here as the holographic
projection of the primate body from the holographically-encoded astral
genes to the astral universe) is present, the astral matter is immediately
attracted to it, so that the bulk of the astral matter, which previously was
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
evenly distributed over the large ovoid, now becomes concentrated inside
the periphery of that body.
Leadbeater observed an affinity between astral and physical matter. He
says that astral and causal matter is attracted to physical matter and moulds
into its shape. As the body grows, astral matter follows its every change,
99% of which is compressed within the periphery of this physical body.
The remaining 1% fills the rest of the ovoid.29 The affinity of dark matter to
ordinary matter is supported by scientific observations and theory.
In addition, (as discussed previously in Chapter 8) astral matter is very
responsive to thought-forms (which are really electromagnetic holograms
that magma has an affinity to). The responsiveness of dark astral matter to
the holographic forms generated by DNA (counterparts) allows the astral
body to mimic every nook and corner of the physical-biomolecular body.
The hologram provides the mould in which astral matter clumps and is
shaped, with the aid of the vibrating nucleus in the magma bubble or sphere
(as discussed in the previous Chapter). In similar processes, the causal and
etheric bodies form.
Vibrational Imaging
Acoustical waves are generated by the nucleus in the magma bubble or
sphere (which contains the dark matter counterpart of DNA ) as it vibrates.
These waves are modified or modulated by the presence of the dark matter
counterpart of the DNA molecule in the sphere.
Han Jenny revealed that complex and intricate forms, often resembling
living organisms, can arise from inert powders, pastes and liquids; solely
through the influence of sound waves, in a field of study he calls, ‘Cymatics.’
(We know that dark matter and plasma is diffused and consists of widely
separated particles – which would make it responsive to acoustical waves.)
As noted previously, no matter how complicated a wave is it can be
described as a combination of many simple sine waves of various frequencies
and amplitudes. When switched on and off at irregular intervals, or
modulated in intensity or in frequency, waves can carry a large amount of
information. This is how an entire orchestra (a complex ‘sound image’) can
be heard from the single vibrating cone of a loud speaker.
Similarly, a single vibrating nucleus in a magma bubble or sphere can
generate a complex image of a primate body by drawing-in and shaping
more than 99% of the matter in the magma bubble or sphere by its constant
modulated vibrations. This multi-dimensional image would in fact be an
electromagnetic body which would emit light and resemble a hologram.

Interaction of the Etheric and Biomolecular Bodies
The etheric body, which is formed within the magma bubble, is an electromagnetic
body which is very close in frequency to the biomolecular body.
It interacts weakly with the biochemical fields in and around cells in the
biomolecular body. The ‘vertical power current’ or the central channels of
the etheric body induces an axis in the biomolecular embryo to give cells
their 3d positional reference and orientation. The electromagnetic field of
the etheric body, which is informed by the holographic form generated by
DNA in higher energy universes, facilitates the growth of the biomolecular
body. William Tiller asserts that the human energy field is a holographic
template that guides the form and structure of the physical body. ‘It is a kind
of three-dimensional blueprint around which the physical body forms.’30
In a paper submitted to the ‘Physical Review’ in November 2003, Chung-
Pei Ma, an associate professor of astronomy at UC Berkeley, and Edmund
Bertschinger of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) say, based
on computer models of how dark matter would move under the force of
gravity, that dark matter should form smaller clumps that look superficially
like the galaxies and globular clusters we see in our luminous (ordinarily
visible) universe.
According to the scientists, dark matter has a dynamic life independent
of luminous matter. Chung Pei-Ma also confirms that ‘the ghost universe of
dark matter is a template for the visible universe’31 – providing evidence that
traditional metaphysical theory had got it right all along. The etheric and
astral bodies inside magma bubbles look superficially like the biomolecular
body but they operate differently, being based on electromagnetic rather
than biochemical processes – as alluded to by Leadbeater. Metaphysicists,
such as Brennan, have been insisting for years that these dark matter bodies
form the templates for the formation of the biomolecular body.
Generation of Time-Resolved Holograms in the Astral and Causal
In holography, every part contains the whole but the image becomes
‘blurred’ if there is too little information in the storage medium. It is as
if each part reinforces the body image projected by other parts. A certain
number of identical cells must be produced before cell differentiation
begins in the human embryo. It is the combined projection of the genetic
holographic information contained within these cells within the astral and
causal magma bubbles that produces a clear holographic thought-form
which guides the development of the etheric double and subsequently, the
biomolecular body.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
After a certain number of divisions in the human embryonic cell and the
formation of completed etheric, astral and causal magma ovoids, the genetic
holographic information contained within the cells is then able to project
clear multidimensional holographic images of the primate form within the
magma bubbles. Most of the matter (in the form of plasma) within the bubbles
is attracted to and clump on these holograms to form bodies which
mimic superficially the primate form of the biomolecular body – much like
the iron filings which form around a magnetic field in a bar magnet, betraying
the shape and structure of the magnetic field.
If genes project a holographic image within the astral and causal universes
– where there are more than 3 space dimensions and a more expansive
time dimension, the 3-dimensional etheric mould which is then generated
from this thought-form would be a time-resolved hologram. This means
it is a form that will look different at different points of time in our universe
– just as an imaginary 3d sphere which passes through a 2d plane
would show different cross-sections of itself on the plane. It will be seen to
be growing over time – from our 3d perspective. According to Barbara Brennan,
the human energy field has an organising effect on matter and builds
forms; and it appears to exist in more than three dimensions. Any changes
in the material world (our lower energy universe) are preceded by a change
in this field.32
Dr Tung H Jeong, Professor of Physics at Lake Forest (Illinois) College,
has shown how holography can be used to make something similar to
enhanced time-lapsed photography. Jeong reported in 1988 to the International
Society of Optical Engineers that a hologram can be used to compare
with a living and growing object to correct the growth pattern and therefore
guide its development.33 If the design of the body occurs through the medium
of a field there still has to be a mechanism to translate the information in
the genes into a 3d guide which evolves with time. Holographic encoding
allows this. As the angle of the illuminating laser beam is changed, the
structure of the life-form at different ages can be projected. Barbara Brennan
has characterised some of the subtle bodies as having ‘light grids.’34 A
(light-wave) hologram is conceptually a ‘light grid.’
Accelerated Morphogenesis
Since long-range correlations are the norm in higher-energy universes,
morphogenesis is accelerated in these higher frequency spheres and slows
down to 9 months in our familiar sphere. The morphogenesis that occurs in
higher spheres facilitates the morphogenesis of the physical-biomolecular
body. Due to the accelerated morphogenesis in higher energy universes, a
clairvoyant will first see the primate form in the causal and astral bubbles,
formatio n of th e ph ysic al-biomo lecu lar bo dy | Chapter 15
then the form in the etheric double – prior to the formation of the biomolecular
body i.e. a ‘top-down’ process.
This may give the impression that higher universes unilaterally determine
the structure of the biomolecular body. There is, in fact, a co-operative
process between the higher and lower energy universes – since the holographic
templates of the primate form generated in higher energy universes
are determined by the one-dimensional set of genes in our universe but
the subtle bodies (which are generated with the aid of the holographic templates),
in turn, guide the formation of the three-dimensional physical-dense
body. Hence, a hybrid model (with both ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ processes)
is required – just as a hybrid model is required to explain the genesis
of the large scale structure of the universe, as argued by Rogier Windhorst
of Arizona State University.
The rate of morphogenesis in each successive universe slows down
due to the petering out of long-range correlations and diminishing responsiveness
to holographic thought-forms. At the physical-biomolecular level,
these long-range correlations are almost absent. Hence, the biomolecular
fetus has to be assisted by the etheric double in its formation.
Post-Mortem Body Images and Templates
Ian Stevenson, a scientific researcher in reincarnation-type cases, has discovered
that a person’s previous incarnation can apparently affect the very
shape and structure of their current physical body. Burmese children who
remember previous lives as British or American Air Force pilots shot down
over Myanmar during World War II all have fairer hair and complexions
than their siblings. Distinctive facial features, foot deformities and other
characteristics were carried over from one life to another. Most often birthmarks
resembling scars from physical injuries have been carried over.
In one case, a boy who remembered being murdered in his former life
by having his throat slit had a long reddish mark resembling a scar around
his neck. A boy who remembered committing suicide by shooting himself
in the head in his past incarnation had two scar-like birthmarks that lined
up perfectly with the bullet’s trajectory, one where the bullet entered and
another where the bullet exited. Stevenson has gathered hundreds of these
cases and has published articles in authoritative journals, including the
‘Journal of the American Medical Association.’
These cases suggest that reincarnation took place a short time after
the death of the biomolecular body and that the etheric double had not
disintegrated completely. This is similar to near-death experiences, except
that a different biomolecular body is subsequently occupied. In near-death
experiences the etheric double would be in the process of disintegrating. If
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
there is a subsequent recovery, the etheric double will be regenerated and
reinforced. In certain rare cases, the etheric double is used again during
a subsequent rebirth as a human being in this or another lower-energy
universe. This usually occurs when the rebirth occurs shortly after death.
In these rare cases, even certain physical features and attributes, which
were developed during the previous lifetime, may appear again in the new
physical-biomolecular body.
In these cases, the etheric double had been impacted by the physical
deformation to the previous biomolecular body and transmitted it as a feature
in the new physical-biomolecular body. However, studies have also
shown that a decapitated limb (commonly called a ‘phantom limb’) still
‘shows up’ in the etheric double in near-death experiences. A leaf, which is
torn-off on one side, still produces a Kirlian image showing a whole leaf.
Effect of Impacts on Higher Energy Bodies
This shows that certain types of impacts do not affect the etheric double
and the higher energy bodies, while others do. The impact of any physical
injury on the physical-biomolecular body diminishes as we advance
towards the higher-energy bodies. The astral body usually appears without
any impacts from the physical body because it is so distant from the physical
body in terms of frequency and energy. On the other hand, the etheric-double
which is ‘nearer’ to the physical body in terms of frequency and energy
receives more impacts.
Infections (biochemical intrusions) are not carried-over to the etheric
double. Magma bodies are electromagnetic – not biomolecular bodies.
Hence, they are generally not impacted by biochemical agents. Clean mutilations
are also not carried over to the new etheric double. Rupert Sheldrake’s
theory of ‘morphic resonance’ would dictate that any acquired characteristic,
whether a behavior or a shape, can be inherited. Sheldrake fills much
of his 1988 book ‘The Presence of the Past’ with experimental evidence for
acquired-characteristic inheritance. One example: In 1923, Russian physiologist
Ivan Pavlov trained mice to run to a feeding place when an electric
bell was rung. The first generation required an average of 300 trials to learn,
the second 100, the third 30, and the fourth 10. Some later experiments on
other creatures imply that acquired shape-changes can be inherited.
Critics assert such studies have not been reliably replicated and abundant
laboratory and cultural evidence points in the opposite direction.
Lamarck and his followers should have realised, wrote marine biologist
J R Whitaker, that ‘a millennium of circumcision rites by the Semitic races
had certainly failed, for example, to result in the birth of males without
foreskins.’ Sheldrake believes, however, that on the basis of morphic
formatio n of th e ph ysic al-biomo lecu lar bo dy | Chapter 15
resonance, mutilations would not be hereditary. They are changes
imposed on the organism, which it suffers passively, rather than changes
it has made as a result of its own activity. The latter would be expected to
have an influence through morphic resonance, not the former.
Fusion of Magma Bodies
These cases provide some evidence that the morphogenetic (or electromagnetic)
field of super magma bodies cultivated in previous incarnations can
resonate and fuse with the new magma bodies generated by the new human
embryo – working in coordination with higher energy universes. We know
that Q-balls tend to fuse when they are in-phase. It has been found in certain
studies that a spouse can become increasingly similar in looks to her
husband or his wife. This provides some evidence that morphogenetic fields
(as represented by etheric doubles) can influence or ‘merge’ with each other.
The physical characteristics of one template can begin to influence, resonate
and fuse with the other.
Existing beings in higher energy universes could, if they so desired,
fuse with new magma bodies generated by new human embryos that were
in-phase and resonated with them.
The Way Forward
Genes fail to explain why human beings are so different from roundworms.
Perhaps there is more information than just from the genes that finally
decides the individual. The nuclei of the etheric, astral and causal magma
bubbles also contain information about the individual. They too are subject
to evolutionary forces. It is the composite information from DNA and the
nuclei of higher energy bodies that finally make the individual. If this is
accepted, then, as higher energy bodies are more mind-like, we must also
accept that even our thoughts and emotions can affect our evolution and the
bodies that we identify ourselves with.

Death of the Physical Bodies
Pre-Death Experiences
The people who were crossing over spent most of their time out
of the body and away. Apparently, they were off with their spirit
guides somewhere. When the people were in their bodies, there
were plenty of spirits in the room.
Barbara Brennan1
Prior to death, when the higher energy bodies become more detached
from the physical body, the sensory systems expand intermittently – the locus
of awareness alternating between the physical and astral bodies. This is the
‘extensive phase’ of the death process, which may take years, months or weeks.
This phase is followed by the ‘intensive phase’ of the death process where dramatic
events take place at a much faster rate.
In those episodes when the sensory systems expand intermittently, the
person sees beings from the next universe (most often the astral universe)
in their immediate vicinities. These forms may be sensed before they appear
initially as dark blobs. As the intensive phase of the death process nears, however,
these dark blobs subsequently transform into definite bodies with form
and color. The observation that they are seen as dark blobs before adopting
death of th e ph ysic al bo dies | Chapter 16
any color or shape is a significant observation. From being invisible, the
images of these dark bodies become first dark (absorbing light) then colorful
(reflecting or emitting light). What we know as ‘dark matter’ may go
through the same transformation as our state of consciousness or frame
of reference changes. The sequence of events most frequently experienced
during the intensive phases is described below.
Dissolution of the Etheric Double within the Biomolecular Body
The intensive phase of the death process of the physical bodies begins when
the etheric magma bubble (of the higher etheric double) contracts into its
nucleus – expelling or dissolving the etheric magma in the process. (This
is a reversal of what happens during morphogenesis). The physical-etheric
nucleus then departs through a meridian in the lower etheric body – which
connects the area near the heart to the area surrounding the brain. According
to Valerie Hunt, each material substance, living or inert, mineral or
chemical, has its own vibratory signature (or resonant frequency) carried
in the structure of its field.2 Information from life experiences alters the
vibratory signature of the etheric ovoid and its nucleus and consequently
their internal structure. During the death process the ovoid (the size of a
man or larger) contracts to the size of a small nucleus. The information
in the nucleus, representing both memories and the body image, is effectively
‘zipped’ or ‘packed’ and forwarded to the next higher-energy dark
body (most often, the astral body). In Tibetan yoga, the (plasma) winds (or
prana) are said to be dissolved into the ‘indestructible drops’ in the heart
area during this process. The etheric nucleus has both particle and wave
According to the 14th Dalai Lama, a subtle white element descends
from the head, down through the central channel, and then stops at the
heart centre during the intensive phase of the death process. As it descends
to the heart, a person will have the experience of a pale light. Following
this, a subtle red element (from below the heart) ascends to the heart, and
while this is occurring, there is a subjective experience of a reddish sheen
arising. When the two of these completely converge, there is a blackout,
as the (physical-etheric) nucleus first enters into the nadi (or meridian or
‘tunnel’). Following that blackout is the period of ‘(clear) light.’3 According
to Leadbeater, at death Prana gathers everything together and, withdrawing
from the body, hands everything to the ‘Knower.’ He says that as the
‘life web,’ accompanied by Prana, disentangles itself from dense physical
matter at death, it draws itself together in the heart around the permanent
particle (or the physical-etheric nucleus of the higher etheric double).4
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
The Reversed Zeeman Effect
When the main vertical power current (and the associated magnetic fields)
collapses, the reversed Zeeman effect takes place. The field of consciousness,
as represented by the large etheric magma ovoid and its electromagnetic
field stretching into infinity, contracts into the etheric nucleus. This
particle (or ‘bindu’ in Hindu scriptures) is the last locus of dense physical
awareness. As the poles of the field close-in – the particle at the ‘north
pole’ near the head which is violet and the particle which is at the ‘south
pole’ – near the genital area which is red converge creating the dominant
color white because white is the combination of all the other colors. If the
rate of closure is uneven there could be a red or a blue sheen. On complete
closure, there is a blackout. The nodes along the vertical channel of the
etheric magma bubble (along the spine in human beings) appear to move
towards the centre due to the reversed Zeeman effect (as discussed earlier),
merging into the nucleus from which they originated. This process is similar
to the teleportation sequence in Star Trek movies where points of light
along the spinal axis either come together or separate at the beginning and
end of the teleportation sequence.
According to I K Taimni, wherever an unmanifest state is changed
into a manifest state, a point is involved. The point is a door between the
unmanifest and the manifest, between one universe and another – much like
a black hole. Recent studies have shown that black holes exist in the centre
of many galaxies and have an important role in the formation of manifested
galaxies. (Black holes are invisible.) Taimni goes on to say that the function
of the point or ‘bindu’ in manifestation is similar to that of the prism in
the dispersion of white light into a spectrum of colored lights (analogous to
the Zeeman effect). It differentiates a principle in an integrated state into
its differentiated forms and functions.5 On death, the reverse process takes
place – there is a convergence of the spectrum of colored lights into white
light (the reversed Zeeman effect), prior to the exit of the point-like object
from the lower physical bodies.
Exit of the Physical-Etheric Nucleus through the Central Channel
Immediately after the contraction of the ovoid into the nucleus, there is a
blackout; and then you may have the sensation of moving through a tunnel,
as the particle rushes up the meridian or nadi of the lower etheric
double – ascending from the heart area to the brain. It then ejects from the
physical-etheric body, via the brain. According to Leadbeater, the nucleus
rises along the Sushumna-nadi into the third ventricle of the brain, then
to the point at the junction of the parietal and occipital sutures, and finally
out of the body.6 Barbara Brennan says that the ‘tunnel experience’ is the
death of th e ph ysic al bo dies | Chapter 16
soul going up through the main vertical power current of the body along the
spine and leaving through the crown chakra.7 This fact was known more
than 2,000 years ago:
A hundred and one nadis [or meridians] pervade the heart – of
these only one extends up to the head. By ascending through
this nadi, a self fares on to immortality. The yogi gathers
his prana and carefully passes it through the Sushumna [or
central] channel, leading his entire consciousness upward. He
then departs through the solar gate [in the head].
Hindu Scriptures, The Katha Upanishad 8
A Yoga Master, specializing in the death process, says that during this
process, the entire consciousness and life force is gathered together from
each and all of the systems within the personality into a single point of light
and awareness. He says conscious migration by way of death is a very simple
step from there.9 Barbara Brennan says, ‘When you leave your body, you may
feel yourself to be a point of gold light, but you will still feel yourself.’10 Some
of us may see the etheric nucleus, which has been ejected from the lower
physical-etheric body of a dying person, as a bright point of light – since the
frequency of physical-etheric matter is close to the biomolecular.
The field that this particle represents extends in all directions infinitely
– merging with other fields. During the death process the field contracts
to the point that it exits from this universe and enters into a new one. If
the rate at which the particle exits the body is very fast, there may not be
a ‘tunnel experience.’ Taimni says that if a person starts contracting the
mental spherical space in his mind gradually so that it assumes the forms
of smaller and smaller spheres, there will be a limit to this progressive contraction.
‘If the reduction is carried beyond this limit, the consciousness
will pass through the centre (of the sphere) and emerge on the other side
in the next higher plane with its own mental space of a different number of
Life as a Physical-Etheric Particle
After exiting the brain, the personality lives his life temporarily as a particle-
wave-field. The physical-etheric nucleus (which allows access to information
about experiences in the physical body) is subsequently absorbed by
the higher energy magma body (usually the astral body). Prior to this, however,
it experiences events as a particle. At death, the etheric-double finally
withdraws from the dense body and may be seen as a purple mist, gradually
condensing into a figure which is the counterpart of the expiring person,
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
and floating over the biomolecular body.12 This is the etheric matter that
is expelled during the contraction of the magma bubble into the nucleus.
The physical-etheric nucleus of the (higher frequency) etheric double ejects

The particle-wave can easily move close to the speed of light which
causes spacetime to become meaningless. When this happens, the ‘self’ disappears
as the entity has no longer a spatio-temporal frame of reference
to locate the self. However, there is a third party self – i.e. a self relative to
others. Combined with the sudden growth of awareness is a feeling of total
loss of self and of timelessness. David Darling, in his book ‘After Life’ says
that a scientist recounted, ‘It’s as if everything was there and everybody was
there; the sense was absolute, total fulfillment. But, the quite amazing thing
is that I wasn’t there; “I” vanished at that moment.’13 While in this state,
the physical-etheric particle, which does not inhabit any body, can project
the image of a body – this is often called the ‘illusory body.’ According to
the 14th Dalai Lama, following mental isolation, the actual ‘illusory body’
arises, and following that there is Buddhahood.14 Or more accurately there is
a possibility of Buddhahood, as the point of consciousness transits between
macroscopic universes.
Paranormal analyst, Allan Danelek (in his book ’The Case for Ghosts’)
says, ‘One could think of orbs as “tiny ghosts” moving around a room, their
essence being contained within a tiny sphere of pure energy, like air inside
a bubble.’ This description could easily fit into the description of life-like
plasma spheres generated in the laboratory by Lozneanu and Sanduloviciu.
‘Orbs’ are light anomalies that appear (on photographs and video) as spherical
balls of light and exhibit intentional behavior – suggesting some consciousness
or awareness of the environment. Orbs often travel in groups or
clusters i.e. they exhibit swarm behavior – also a characteristic of particles
in plasma – a characteristic observed by Bohm. Orbs also can dart back and
forth rapidly like amoebic life-forms in a Petri dish. The balls can be transparent,
translucent or in a bright solid form. These are signature features
of magnetic plasma which has the natural property of being able to change
its degree of opacity when internal frequencies change. Magnetic plasma
would also allow orbs to change their output of light or luminosity.
Looking at these balls in close-up reveals that they possess an onionlike
layered structure i.e. they have concentric shells – a signature feature
of plasma crystals. Danelek says, ‘… “true orbs” do not reflect light the
same way a dust particle or flying insect does, but are instead generally
more opaque and, in some cases, even appear to have rings within them.’
death of th e ph ysic al bo dies | Chapter 16
Experienced ghost hunter Joshua Warren (in his excellent book ’How to
Hunt Ghosts’) says, ‘Often, orbs appear to have a nucleus, just like a cell.
The nucleus might be surrounded by “bands” – concentric circles emerging
from it. In fact, it might appear like an onion that’s been chopped in half.’
All these characteristics are almost identical to plasma spheres and plasma
crystals generated in the laboratory.
Some believe that these orbs are conscious spirits that have stayed
behind because they feel bound to their previous life or previous location
for whatever reason. All these characteristics suggest that they are physicaletheric
particles ejected from the dying physical bodies. Their microscopic
particle bodies facilitate entry into other universes through microscopic
Dissolution of the Etheric-Double Outside the Biomolecular Body
When a person is too fearful of ‘letting-go’ of the state of consciousness that
he is accustomed to, the dissolution of the (higher) etheric double may be
suspended. In this case, the etheric double separates from the biomolecular
body early and wanders about in confusion and fear – while the biomolecular
body undergoes decomposition. The individual will not be able to engage
with the dense physical or super physical worlds as he has not completed
the death process. In this way he or she may wander for months on the
physical plane of the Earth until finally (when ready) the etheric double dissolves
and the physical-etheric nucleus is released to the next higher energy
body – usually the astral body.15
This is the ‘second’ death. The first death is the death of the physicalbiomolecular
body. The second death is the death of the physical-etheric
body. There is no strict timing about when the second death will occur. The
individual has the freedom of choice – within the constraints of the properties
of the etheric double. This is similar to the first death – the individual
has some choice on when to ‘let-go’ of the biomolecular body – although
within the constraints of the properties of the biomolecular body. According
to the 14th Dalai Lama, those who have gained some experience as a result
of meditative training can have a certain degree of control of the duration of
the pace of dissolution (and contraction).16
During the dissolution (and contraction) of the etheric double, the
astral body breaks away from the physical bodies. It will then have two loci
of consciousness (one particulate and one macroscopic). Normally, the person
is unconscious until he has freed his astral body from the etheric matter.
There are some people who cling so desperately to this universe that
their astral vehicles cannot altogether separate from the etheric, and they
awaken still surrounded and entangled by etheric matter.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
People who suspend the dissolution (and contraction) of the etheric double
are in a very unpleasant condition, suspended as it were between two
spheres (the physical and the astral). They are shut out from the astral magmasphere
by their etheric body. They drift about; lonely, dumb and terrified,
belonging to neither sphere, glimpsing sometimes at other drifting souls
and their own unfortunate positions.17 Intermittently, the etheric veil may
tear to permit a glance into the lower astral planes. This glimpse into hell is
rarely encouraging; sometimes for a moment some familiar Earthly object
may be half-seen – usually from passing contact with a strong thought-image;
but such rare and tantalizing lifting of the fog only makes the darkness
more soul-shaking and hopeless when it shuts down again. All the while
the desperate newly departed do not realise that if they would only let go of
their frenzied grip on this universe, they would slip at once (through a few
moments of unconsciousness) into the ordinary life of the astral plane. But
they cannot bear losing even the miserable half-consciousness that they
have; they cling even to the horrors of a grey world of all-embracing fog
rather than let themselves sink into what seems to be a sea of nothingness
and complete extinction. However, in time, they let go.18
In time the etheric shell wears out, and the ordinary course
of nature reasserts itself in spite of their struggles; and
sometimes in sheer despair they let themselves go – resulting
in a pleasant surprise.
Charles Leadbeater 19
The 14th Dalai Lama also notes that during the dissolution, sometimes
(etheric) smoke and sometimes (etheric) sparks may be seen.20 During the
death of the physical-biomolecular body, the etheric doubles (both crystalline
and liquid) would also disintegrate. Smoke is seen on the disintegration
of a body in its liquid state; sparks are seen if the body is in a crystalline
Post-Mortem Decay of Organic Tissues
According to the 14th Dalai Lama, as long as the ‘clear light’ of the death
experience is sustained, the connection between the very subtle energymind
and the gross physical body has not yet been severed; it is in the process
of being severed but it has not yet been completely severed. At the very
moment that the severance takes place, the body begins to decay.21 Annie
Besant says that the moment the etheric double withdraws, and prana ceases
to circulate, the lower lives, i.e. the (biological) cells, run rampant and begin
to break down the hitherto definitely organised body. The body can then
death of th e ph ysic al bo dies | Chapter 16
be said to be alive in its units but dead in its totality. The corpse would not
decompose if it were dead; all the molecules which compose it are living and
struggling to separate.22
Delays in the decaying process may be due to the chemical environment
in which the dead body finds itself. For persons who have practiced
prolonged meditation, however, delays in decomposition may also be due to
the etheric double being attached to the physical body as such persons leave
their lower bodies without hesitation, immediately on death. Their etheric
doubles have been strengthened and enlarged by prolonged meditation and
absorption of large amounts of qi, which serves to preserve the biomolecular
The Life Review & the ‘Akashic Records’
A life review may be facilitated after the physical-etheric nucleus is ejected
through the brain. According to David Darling, at just the moment we
expect awareness to close down as the body’s life-support systems collapse
and brain function is increasingly impaired, near-death experiencers say
that they experience startlingly heightened cognition.23 According to the
14th Dalai Lama, the power of memory is increasing, so automatically the
memory of this life would also increase.24 Long before near-death experiences
became a popular subject of study in the West, Leadbeater said in
1925 that it is during the withdrawal of the etheric-double, as well as afterwards,
that ‘the whole of the man’s past life passes swiftly in review before
the person, every forgotten nook and corner of the memory yielding up its
secrets, picture after picture, event after event.’ In these few seconds the
higher self lives over again his whole life, seeing his successes and failures,
loves and hatreds: he perceives the predominant tendency of his life and the
place in which his immediate post-mortem life will be spent.25
The individual’s ‘Life Review’ is in fact an extract from the ‘Akashic’
records imprinted in the zero point field.26 The individual obtains a glimpse
of these records pertaining to his own lives. Strictly speaking the life review
is voluntary and can occur even during the physical life. For most people,
however, there is an instinctual need to know and review what went before;
for example, when a friend dies or emigrates we have an instinctual urge to
recall our encounters with him and to assess his life in our minds. Similarly,
when we bid farewell to our physical bodies, we have an instinctual urge
to recall the events that occurred with those bodies. So the life review is
‘called-up’ by the freed physical-etheric nucleus and does not automatically
occur; but usually does. The life review can actually be called-up at anytime
during a person’s life – because it is always there – etched in the fabric
of spacetime.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
The past-life review is presumably extracted from the Akashic
Records, which seers and occultists have long observed as the
indelible impressions left upon the etheric substance of the
universe by everything that has ever happened. Clairvoyants
may tap into this cosmic memory, and it appears that hypnotic
subjects are granted access to the same vast, nonmolecular*
Joel Whitton and Joe Fisher 27
* This suggests a plasma state. The physical-etheric nucleus provides
the links to portions of the Akashic records that pertain to it.
Observing the Funeral
Leadbeater says that a dead man is often aware of the feelings of the family
that he has left since he can see the astral bodies of his family members.28
Astral bodies manifest emotions in dramatic ways in their liquid states.
Immediately after death and free from the etheric double, a person usually
finds himself in the astral body. In this body, only the astral bodies of others
can be observed. The person in his astral body, in its liquid state, would be
able to observe the emotional states of family members and friends during
the funeral. However, if the funeral occurs before the physical-etheric body
is cast-off, then the view will be very similar to that from everyday consciousness
within the physical-biomolecular body.
Meeting with the Light
The physical-etheric nucleus is finally drawn towards the higher energy
bodies. The meeting with the ‘Light’ is the meeting with the next higher
energy body – in this case the astral body. It is in fact a meeting with your
own self in the astral body. Beings in super magma universes generally
appear as ovoid balls of light. The physical-etheric nucleus enters and is
absorbed into the ovoid ball of light (which is your own astral body).

Earth-Based Heavens & Hells
According to Hiralal Kaji, a metaphysicist, all non-physical planes are more or
less only a few hundred kilometres away from the Earth and on the outer border
of the atmosphere.1 This is also stated or implied in the world’s religious
From where the sun arises to where it sets, There all the gods are
suspended; … A s god he dwells in the atmosphere …
Katha Upanishad, Hindu Scriptures 2
... as they were watching, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him
out of their sight. While he was going and they were gazing

The Acts of the Apostles, Christian Bible 3
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Earth-Based Heavens
According to Leadbeater, the average person, passing into heaven-life, tends
to float at a considerable distance above the surface of the Earth.4 If Earth
was interpenetrated and surrounded by dark matter then it would be reasonable
to conclude that the popular ‘heavens’ and ‘hells’ described in many
religions and cultures are literally on planet Earth – in fact interpenetrating
the physical Earth. If we considered Earth in its totality (i.e. including its
invisible etheric, astral and causal bodies), these common heavens and hells
are actually part of this planet and are subject to the gravitational attraction
of the Earth. The practice of looking up to the sky to pray (in whatever
country around the globe) may be quite correct since dark matter heavens
(and their gods) are actually located in the Earth’s atmosphere.
Many cultures (for example the Greeks and Romans) located their gods
on the summits of mountains. This may be due to sightings in the past of
gods high up in the atmosphere (within the astral magmasphere), superimposed
against the summits of mountains. If we take the Bible literally,
we will assume that Jesus ascended into heaven (which interpenetrates or
shares the same space as our ‘physical sky’) to perhaps an Earth-proximate
heaven within the astral magmasphere initially.
Moses went up to a mountain to speak to God. Jesus went up to a mountain
on the day of his transfiguration. Sightings which occur at the summits
of high mountains and near cloud level represent events taking place in
the astral magmasphere. The Earth’s astral magmasphere extends beyond
Earth’s physical atmosphere (forming a halo around the Earth). Sightings
at the higher end or beyond the Earth’s atmosphere represent events taking
place at the higher levels of the astral magmasphere. NA SA has recorded
astronauts having ‘hallucinations’ as they orbited the Earth at that altitude.
Were they?
Earth-Based Hells
According to Leadbeater, astral matter gravitates towards the centre of the
Earth just as physical matter does; both obey the same general laws. He
also observes that the densest aggregation of astral matter lies within the
limits of the physical sphere.5 This is consistent with the lambda cold dark
matter theory (as earlier discussed in Chapter 4). According to this theory,
dark matter clumps with a high concentration in the centre. Some physicists
have theorised that there could be a large concentration of dark matter in
the Earth’s core due to Earth’s gravitational attraction. Leadbeater has also
observed that the ‘fiery’ kundalini – a dense form of super plasma originates
from the centre of the Earth. The universal density profile of dark matter
under the lambda cold dark matter theory supports a dense concentration
earth -based heavens & hells | Chapter 17
of dark matter at the centre of the Earth.6
The higher density super physical matter (for example, the astral matter
of the seventh ‘ring,’ discussed below), gravitates and sediments below the
Earth’s crust. There have been reports of miners hearing screams in deep
wells and mines that they have tunneled. If hell is made of dense dark matter,
it probably is within the Earth’s crust! This is of course what has been
described by many different cultures about hell’s location.
A human being who spends most of his or her time on physical pleasures
generates an astral body which is closer in density to physical bodies.
After death, this dense astral body gravitates towards the centre of the
Earth, together with other astral matter of the same density, as a natural
consequence of magneto-hydrodynamics. The pressure imposed by the
astral matter above the region is enormous causing the astral matter to be
compacted and compressed. This dense region is extremely unpleasant.
Movement is restricted and the environment is claustrophobic.
The negative visionary finds himself associated with a body that
seems to grow progressively more dense, more tightly packed…
many of the punishments described in the various accounts of
hell are punishments of pressure and constriction.
Aldous Huxley, Heaven and Hell
Leadbeater says that during physical life a person is constantly influencing
the building of matter into his astral body. He affects it directly by
the passions, emotions and desires which he allows to hold sway over him;
he affects it indirectly by the action upon it of his thoughts from above,
and all of the details of his physical life from below. He says, ‘If he is so
stupid to build himself a coarse and gross astral vehicle, habituated to
responding only to the lower vibrations of the plane (or ring), he will find
himself after death bound to the plane during the long and slow process of
the body’s disintegration. On the other hand, if he gives himself a vehicle
mainly composed of finer material, he will have very much less post-mortem
trouble and discomfort, and his evolution will proceed much more
rapidly and easily.’7
One of the characteristics of ‘hell’ in popular culture is a lack of freedom
and the sensation of being chained. This sensation is caused by the
very high pressures experienced in the centre of the astral Earth which
impedes movement. The outer core of the physical Earth is molten and very
hot. The astral Earth is subject to the same type of heat – as evidenced by hot
dense kundalini being present here. The extreme heat and the experience
of being burned also features in popular conceptions of hell. So, there is
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
reason to believe that the most common type of ‘hot’ hell does literally exist
below the Earth’s crust.
Geography of Earth-Based Heavens
Organisation of Rings in the Magmasphere
Almost every metaphysicist agrees that the astral and causal magmaspheres
are divided into rings. Each magmasphere can be considered a
‘plasma crystal.’ Plasma crystals, which may be in the form of ensembles
of particles held in a crystal-like array by a plasma of weakly ionised gas,
had been devised by H Thomas and his colleagues. The assembly of microparticles
was contained between two electrodes and illuminated by a laser
beam. Even with the unaided eye, it was seen that the particles arranged
themselves regularly in as many as 18 planes parallel to the electrodes.8
Similarly, many metaphysicsts identify 7 concentric rings (like onion rings)
that form within each etheric, astral and causal magmasphere as a natural
consequence of magneto-hydrodynamics. Each magmasphere has a
dense centre (consistent with the cold dark matter model) with a specific
polarity and a double-layered sheath with the opposite polarity. These are
analogous to the two electrodes in Thomas’s experiment, cited above. Inbetween,
each ring is bounded by an upper double-layered sheath and a
lower double-layered sheath. Although the magmaspheres interpenetrate,
the rings within each magmasphere generally do not. Each sheath is rife
with surface currents.
According to Anthony Peratt, highly conducting plasma has a natural
tendency to separate within charged particle sheaths or cellular-like walls.
This structure appears wherever samples with different densities, temperatures
or magnetic field strengths come into contact.9
Ring-Sheaths in the Magma Body
Leadbeater reports that the astral body after death, being freed from
the binding energies of the biomolecular body, also organises itself into
sheaths 10 (again, as a natural consequence of magneto-hydrodynamics).
The astral magma body actually reinforces the sheaths having been freed
from the physical-biomolecular body. When physically coupled with the
biomolecular body, the astral body has an electrified sheath around it,
but the sheaths around the different rings (separating magma of different
densities and other properties) within the astral body are not yet fully
developed – being under the influence of the biomolecular body. Once
freed from the biomolecular body, however, electrified sheaths continue
their development quickly to separate the rings. This confines the person’s
awareness to only one ring in the astral magmasphere at a time. As each
earth -based heavens & hells | Chapter 17
ring (in the astral body) disintegrates, the next ring in the astral magmasphere
comes into view. Although ring-sheath formation happens to most
newcomers to the astral magmasphere (after the death of their physical
bodies), it can be prevented by an act of will, according to Leadbeater.
Electromagnetic Domains
Beings that have magma bodies are subject to electromagnetic forces
within the magmaspheres. From a physical perspective, the rings to which
these beings will reach, based on their equilibrium positions in the magmasphere,
is determined not only by the total mass of their bodies (which
is determined by the mass and density of particles making up their bodies)
but also the net electric charge and magnetic polarity in their bodies.
The rings within magmaspheres are contained within electrified sheaths
which levitate or gravitate magma bodies with a net electric charge. These
electrified sheaths also act as electromagnetic fences – making it difficult
for magma bodies to ‘escape’ or wander off to another ring. According
to Paramahansa Yogananda, various ‘spheric mansions’ and vibratory
regions are provided to astral beings. Astral beings of different grades are
assigned to suitable ‘vibratory quarters.’11 Advanced beings are, however,
able to cross boundaries.
In my Father’s house are many dwelling places.
Saying attributed to Jesus of Nazareth 12
Leadbeater says that when the astral body has exhausted its attractions
to one level, the greater part of its grosser particles (from the outer
ring) will fall away, and it will find itself in affinity with a somewhat higher
state of existence. Its specific gravity, as it were, is constantly decreasing. It
steadily rises from the dense to the lighter strata, ‘pausing only when it is
exactly balanced for a time’13 – in other words when it is in an ‘equilibrium’
The actual physical location of the lowest frequency hells and heavens
can be confirmed once our detection techniques become more refined – probably
within this century. An average human being may spend many hundreds
of years in the Earth’s astral and causal magmaspheres.
The Magmaspheres
The physical Earth has a magmasphere (a combination of a ‘plasmasphere’
and a ‘magnetosphere’) in a ring around itself. The astral Earth, however,
consists entirely of an astral magmasphere – composed of seven rings with
decreasing densities of astral matter further away from the centre of the
jay alfred | OUr InVISIBle BOdIeS
earth Similarly the causal earth, which consists entirely of a causal magmasphere,
is composed of seven rings with decreasing densities as
we move-up the energy ladder, each ring becomes less dense, more
tenuous and higher in frequency Joel Whitton and Joe fisher say, in
their book ‘life between life,’ that ‘each higher plane is lighter and
brighter than the one before ’14
The environments interpenetrating the physical earth are basically magnetised
plasma environments, with beings in the form of balls of light whizzing
about! although it may seem strange and frightening now, there is metaphysical
evidence that there are orientation programs and that everyone generally
gets used to it after awhile
raymond Moody reports, based on his analysis of near-death experiences,
that once through the ‘tunnel,’ the person usually meets beings of light
which are not composed of ordinary light but super light near-death experiencers
say they glow with a beautiful and intense luminescence that seems to
permeate everything 15 If there are beings in these spheres, inevitably there will
also be hierarchies and exchanges between different beings There are governments
and groups with different interests
These magmaspheres are electromagnetic environments The almost
transparent magma ovoids in which beings reside keep them protected from
radiation and other electromagnetic intrusions according to a new Scientist
journal report ‘Plasma bubble could protect astronauts on Mars trip’ in July
2006, researchers at the University of Washington, Seattle, US, are in fact
‘seriously considering using a bubble of plasma to shield astronauts from radiation
during long journeys through space ’
Earth-based Heavens and Hells
The astral world that most human beings would find themselves in after the death
of their physical bodies is not in some other galaxy – it is on this very earth,
bound by the earth’s gravitational field It is the earth’s astral magmasphere
according to leadbeater the astral magmasphere surrounding and interpenetrating
the physical earth extends to a little less than the average distance of
the Moon to the earth This distance is equivalent to 30 earth diameters; i.e.
the radius of the astral magmasphere is 30 times the earth’s diameter In
other words, the astral magmasphere is incredibly huge or 216,000 times larger
(in terms of volume) than the physical earth! according to Paramahansa
yogananda, ‘the entire physical creation hangs like a little solid basket under
the huge luminous balloon of the astral sphere ’ Plutarch, the Greek philosopher
who lived in the first century a d , wrote ‘every soul is ordained to
wander between incarnations in the region between the Moon and the earth ’
earth -based heavens & hells | Chapter 17
Yogananda also observed that ‘the astral day and night are longer than
those of (physical) Earth.’16 Since the astral magmasphere is gravitationally
coupled with the physical Earth, it too would rotate. However, since it is a
larger sphere there could be a slowing down of the rotational speed, making
a day in the astral magmasphere longer than 24 hours but the astral
year would be the same as the physical year in terms of total duration.
However, the number of days in an astral year would be less. Since, astral
objects emit light; even the nights would be filled with lights in the astral
magmasphere. The causal magmaspheres, however, extends further into
space. While each sphere (the physical-etheric, astral and lower causal)
interpenetrates each other, all of these do not generally communicate or
have links with the corresponding spheres of any other planet.17
The actual locations of persons (who have left their physical bodies
permanently) can be identified approximately – by taking into account that
many inhabitants of the astral magmasphere live within rings around the
Earth – which extends many kilometres above our heads and below the
crust of the Earth. As people of the same religion tend to keep together
after death just as they do during life, there is a kind of network of heavens
belonging to people of the same religion but over different countries.18
A predominantly Catholic country would have a heavily populated
Catholic heaven several kilometres above its surface but at a different
longitude. There would be a longitude and time displacement due to the
different rotational speeds of the physical and astral spheres. Similarly, a
predominantly Muslim country would have a heavily populated Islamic
heaven several kilometres above its surface.
Access to Other Planets
According to Leadbeater, matter of the lower planes is never carried over
from planet to planet.19 Hence, most human beings after death do not find
themselves in other planets. Leadbeater also says that only atomic matter
of the astral and causal planes which is in an entirely free condition (i.e.
in an uncompressed state) is co-extensive with interplanetary space. Consequently
a person cannot pass from planet to planet in his astral or lower
causal body than he can in his physical body (in the absence of any special
technology). In a highly developed (higher) causal body, however, this is
possible. Access to other planets, therefore, may be restricted for the super
magma bodies discussed in this book. Only the highest energy bodies can
have some access to other planets.20 Contact with astral and causal beings
in neighbouring planets – such as Mars and Venus (and also in the nearby
asteroid belt) would therefore be rare. The habitats of these neighbouring
planets in their dark matter extensions may be conducive to the related
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
type of beings, even if they are not conducive to physical life.
The extent to which the inhabitants of Earth’s astral and causal universes
have access to neighbouring planets, however, would also depend
on their level of technology. For example, Paramahansa Yogananda has
reported the use of astral vehicles or masses of light to travel from one
planet to another.21 Technology is therefore as relevant to societies in the
astral and causal magmaspheres of the Earth as it is relevant to us.
At certain times when the Moon does come closer to Earth, there is an
overlap between the highest rings in the astral magmaspheres of the Earth
and the Moon. It is also reasonable to assume that the physical-etheric,
astral and causal magmaspheres of the Moon and Earth would be mutually
attracted to the centre of gravity of the Earth-Moon system – generating
high tides in the fluidic magmaspheres. There would therefore be an ‘ebb
and flow’ of etheric, astral and causal matter. Our etheric, astral and causal
bodies would similarly feel the ebb and flow in our bodies – causing changes
in our emotional and mental states. The effects would be more pronounced
every time the Moon’s orbit brought it closer to the Earth or when the Moon
was aligned with the Sun and Earth.
Phasing into different Spheres and Rings
In time, as the physical brain and sensory systems deteriorates, the locus
of awareness shifts to the brain and sensory systems of the next higher
energy body i.e. the astral body. This usually happens gradually and intermittently
(as evidenced in pre-death experiences). As sensory impressions
from physical objects grow weaker, sensory impressions from the higher
energy universe become more noticeable and vivid. So, gradually, almost
imperceptibly, the person begins living and operating in a different world.
Gradually he will start seeing the counterpart astral bodies of his ‘living’
family and friends, rather than their lower frequency physical bodies (just as
he could only see their physical bodies when he was using his physical brain
and sensory systems). The same sequence of events occurs when phasing
into the next higher-energy universe and the next one and so on.
A person therefore phases into different rings and spheres of the astral
and causal magmaspheres when he loses sight of the objects and inhabitants
of one ring relating to a particular sphere while becoming more conscious
of the objects and inhabitants of another ring. For most of us, at death the
locus of awareness is transferred to the astral body, and at once we find
ourselves in Earth’s astral magmasphere, having lost sight of the physical
Earth. When later on we lose the astral body and the locus of awareness
is transferred to the causal body, we are then conscious only of the causal
universe, and would lose sight of the astral and physical universes.22

Filamentary and Birkeland currents on Earth
Rings and electrified sheaths are consequences of plasma magneto-hydrodynamics.
Another signature feature of magma is of course filamentary currents.
Filamentary currents are present not only in space but in our magma
bodies and also within the dark matter counterparts enveloping the Earth.
Each ring in a particular magmasphere is bounded by electrified sheaths
which have surface currents.
In addition, invisible filaments and Birkeland currents abound on
Earth. These filaments are what have been called ‘ley lines’; which are
alluded to in Chinese feng-shui studies. When these filaments cross they
pinch, collapsing to form nodes, which give rise to vortexes within our
planet. These vortexes have been identified as ‘holy sites’ by various spiritual
traditions. Ley lines, or leys, connect ancient holy sites – just as filaments
connect vortexes.

Earth’s Etheric, Astral
& Causal Magmaspheres
The Etheric Magmasphere
Blake Levitt, in his book, ‘Electromagnetic Fields’ notes that the natural
background voltage increases with altitude. Between the lowest layers of
the ionosphere and the Earth’s surface, there are about 360,000 volts; from
the top of the Empire State Building to the sidewalks at its base, there are
approximately 40,000 volts, and between the head of a six-foot man and
the sidewalk, approximately 200 volts. At the Earth’s surface, the voltage
is approximately 100. This sounds alarming, but in fact hardly any shock
potential exists because there is no current; it is just background voltage and
static DC fields.1
Scientists know very little about this huge reservoir of natural power
– how it functions or what governs it. Just like the pattern of voltage gradients
over the biomolecular body, the pattern of voltage gradients over our
planet is difficult to explain – based on current Science. Perhaps, just like
the pervasive magnetic fields in space, they are the result of dark matter in a
plasma state – specifically the lower etheric double of the Earth. The Earth’s
electromagnetic field betrays the presence of Earth’s etheric double – with
its meridians (or filaments), chakras (or vortexes) and main vertical power
earth ’s eth eric , ast ral & caus al mAg Masph eres | Chapter 18
The Earth’s physical-etheric magmasphere is (presumably) coterminous
with the dense physical Earth (since it is its’ ‘double’). Like the other magmaspheres,
we can also assume it has seven concentric rings – with electrified
sheaths separating one ring from another.
The Astral Magmasphere
First Station after Physical Death
The idea of an astral body floating free of an immobile corpse,
wending its independent way to wherever it is that astral
bodies go, is attractive and interesting, and in many ways the
most concrete speculation about immortality.
Danah Zohar, Physicist 2
According to Leadbeater, what we call the astral magmasphere may
also be considered the astral body of the Earth. It exists all around us, and
interpenetrates the solid physical Earth beneath our feet and extends far
away above our heads – a huge ball of astral matter with the physical Earth in
the middle of it, much as the physical body of a man exists within the ovoid
form which is filled with astral matter.3
Immediately after the intensive phase of the death process of the physical
body, most human beings would find themselves still on Earth – but
in the higher frequency astral magmasphere of the Earth, not the physical
Earth. Immediately after the death of all the physical bodies, a human
being’s location in the astral magmasphere can be estimated. However, over
time, a person’s equilibrium position in the astral magmasphere changes as
the density, net electric charge and magnetic polarity of the super magma
body changes. They would then be more difficult to locate from our location
(unless we have accurate information on how they evolved).
Some people tend to hover around their Earthly homes, in order to
keep in touch with their friends of the physical life and the places which
they know; but the great majority of beings who have recently lost their
physical bodies spend most of their lives comparatively near to the surface
of the physical Earth, in the astral magmasphere. However, as they
withdraw into themselves and their locus of awareness shifts to higher frequency
rings, they find it easier and more natural than before to soar farther
away from the Earth’s surface into less populated regions where there are
less disturbances.4
According to Paramahansa Yogananda, the recently physically disembodied
being arrives in an astral family through invitation, drawn by similar
mental and spiritual tendencies.5 The astral universe has a propensity
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
to manifest and objectify the emotions and thoughts of an individual, just
as the astral body (which is composed of the particles and matter of the
astral universe) of the individual does. It has four space dimensions and
one time dimension. The Kaluza-Klein theory (in mathematical physics)
has the same spacetime signature. The Kaluza-Klein theory, to some
extent, is therefore a mathematical model of the astral universe. A large
part of the descriptions below of the various magmaspheres and rings
are compiled from writings by C W Leadbeater (The Inner Life, 1910-11),
the compilations of Arthur E Powell (The Astral Body, 1927; The Mental
Body, 1927 and The Causal Body, 1928) and Paramahansa Yogananda
(The Autobiography of a Yogi, 1946).
Sheath-Formation on Entry into the Astral Universe
Generally, most beings (with magma bodies) are confined to particular
planes, branes or rings (consistent with findings in plasma crystal technology).
According to Leadbeater, during the life of the physical body the
astral body circulates particles with a variety of densities within its body.
Because of this, the body is able to perceive objects even in the higher astral
rings. However, when the astral body is released on the death of the physical
bodies, the magma immediately starts to reinforce the sheaths to separate
regions with different densities and other physical attributes within the
astral body.
As noted earlier, magnetic plasma has a natural tendency to form
sheaths. The formation of these sheaths blocks-off communications with
higher energy rings of the astral magmasphere. This gradual blocking-off
process is evidenced by a ‘step-down’ to a lower state of awareness after
enjoying a short interval of multi-ring awareness immediately after the
death of the physical bodies. However, since the astral body is very responsive
to thoughts, this blocking-off process can be prevented by an act of
will, according to Leadbeater. In this way a person’s astral life will be more
complete from the time he becomes aware of the astral universe and not
restricted to only one ring or plane.6
Lower Astral Magmasphere
Seventh Astral Ring – Hell in Earth’s interior
The seventh or lowest astral ‘ring’ penetrates some distance into the
interior of the Earth, so that the entities living in it may find themselves
actually below the crust of the Earth. This inner ‘ring’ is composed of
high density astral matter which has been compressed by the high pressures
imposed by the astral matter in the larger astral magmasphere
(compared to the physical sphere). In this sphere the density is so high
earth ’s eth eric , ast ral & caus al mAg Masph eres | Chapter 18
that it is indescribably loathsome to the liberated astral body. Moving
through such an environment would be like pushing your way through
a black, hyperviscous fluid, while the inhabitants and the influences
encountered there are also usually exceedingly undesirable. The only
persons who would normally awake to consciousness on this sphere are
those who have a highly dense astral body as a result of having desires
which are consistently gross and brutal – drunkards, sensualists, violent
criminals and the like, according to Leadbeater.7
Sixth, Fifth and Fourth Astral Rings – Private Worlds
The sixth ring is partially coincident with the surface of the Earth. Rings
6, 5 and 4 have for their background the physical world with which we are
familiar. Life on ring 6 is like ordinary physical life, minus the physical
body and its necessities. According to Leadbeater, the astral counterparts
of solid physical objects – the floor, walls and furniture of a room are all of
the lowest type of astral matter, and consequently the new arrivals to this
ring usually see these counterparts vividly. There is, therefore, no necessity
for the inhabitants of the sixth astral ring to create astral objects. Most of
the physical objects already have their counterparts.8 They also find themselves
surrounded by the astral counterparts of physically existing mountains,
trees and lakes, and consequently do not generate any scenery for
Rings 5 and 4 are less dense and more withdrawn from the lower world
and its interests. Earthly associations become less important and the beings
there tend more and more to mould their surroundings into agreement
with their more persistent thoughts. These rings also contain many cities.
According to Michael Talbot, near-death experiencers and others describe
metropolises with remarkable consistency. The most notable feature of
these great cities is that they are brilliantly luminous. Swedenborg said that
it was a place of ‘staggering architectural design, so beautiful that you would
say this is the home and the source of art itself.’10
Higher Astral Magmasphere
Third and Second Astral Rings – Religious Communities
Leadbeater says that the third astral ring extends many kilometres up into
the atmosphere. This ring is further removed from the physical world and
correspondingly less matter-like and more mind-like. Magma beings lose
sight of the Earth (i.e. the surface of the Earth) and they are usually deeply
self-absorbed. To a large extent they create their own surroundings which
are sufficiently objective to be perceptible to other entities. They live in
imaginary cities of their own, partly creating them entirely of their own
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
thoughts, and partly inheriting and adding to the structures created by
their predecessors.11
According to Leadbeater, beings of these rings surround themselves with
landscapes of their own construction, though some avoid that trouble by
accepting ready-made landscapes constructed by others. They construct for
themselves weird scenes described in various scriptures. These are mostly
clumsy and unimaginative attempts to reproduce ideas such as jewels growing
upon trees, seas of glass mingled with fire, creatures with eyes all over
the surface of their bodies; and deities with a hundred heads and arms to
correspond. The second astral ring is the habitat of the selfish or unspiritual
religionist. Here he wears his golden crown and worships his own gross
representation of the particular deity of his country and time.12
Robert Monroe calls rings 3 and 2 the ‘Belief System Territories.’
According to him, it is in these belief system territories that we find groups
of people who have been attracted together by their shared beliefs during
physical life. Here we will find the heavens of all the major religions which
have been generated by human consciousness and by religious leaders
preaching over centuries about their heavens that their devotees will arrive
at after death.13
This level of consciousness or region of the afterlife is also known as
the ‘hollow heavens.’ People, who arrive in these hollow heavens after death,
live according to what has been taught to them during life, as to what to
expect in heaven. A person may reside in one of these hollow heavens until a
point arrives when they start to notice inconsistencies in the particular doctrines
that their religion preaches. At this point, they can no longer resonate
with those present in that particular hollow heaven and they will leave.14
First Astral Ring
Materialistic Intellectuals
The first astral ring is currently peopled with those who during their Earthlife
have devoted themselves to materialistic but intellectual pursuits, following
them not for the sake of benefiting their fellow-men, but either from
motives of selfish ambition or simply for the sake of intellectual exercise.
These beings may remain in this ring for many years, happy in working out
their intellectual problems, but doing no good to any one, and making little
progress on their way towards the next higher energy magmasphere.15
Nature of the Astral Magmasphere
The person who first arrives upon the astral magmasphere (after leaving
permanently the physical bodies) does not always realise that his physical
bodies are dead, and even when that fact comes home to him, it does not
earth ’s eth eric , ast ral & caus al mAg Masph eres | Chapter 18
follow that he at once understands how the astral world differs from the
physical. In the physical world a person requires a number of necessities:
food, clothing and shelter. In order to procure these he must have money.
All these ideas are so ingrained in new arrivals, that they often find it difficult
for a long time to believe that they are really free from these wants. The
new arrivals to the astral magmasphere may try to eat or build themselves
No need for food
The astral body changes its particles as does the physical, but fortunately
the tiresome process of cooking, eating and digesting food is not a necessity
on the astral plane. The purely physical cravings of hunger and thirst
no longer exist; but the desire of a glutton to gratify the sensation of taste,
and the desire of the drunkard for the exhilaration which follows, for him,
the absorption of alcohol – these are both astral in origin, and therefore they
still persist, and cause great suffering because of the absence of the physical-
biomolecular body through which alone these psychological addictions
can be appeased.
No need for sleep
There appears to be no need for sleep in the astral world. On the astral plane
there is no feeling of fatigue. However, there is a gradual reduction in energy
when the end of the astral life approaches.
Friends may appear differently
Knowledge of a person in the astral world does not necessarily mean knowledge
of the physical form of that person. As noted earlier, astral counterparts
do not mirror the physical, unlike the etheric double. They may appear
quite different, depending on their emotional and mental states. Thought
can have a significant effect on higher energy magma bodies. Even in afterdeath
communications, people have reported that their dearly departed
have appeared to them quite differently, one or two years after their deaths.
This happens when the departed migrate from the etheric to the astral magmasphere.
Despite this, astral friends can recognise each other, perhaps
because of the resonant frequency of their magma bodies.
Pleasures are greater
Astral pleasures are much greater than those of the physical world. It
is quite impossible to realise while one is confined in the physical body
the great attractiveness of these pleasures. But even the delights of astral
life do not present a serious danger to those who have realised a little of
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
something higher, according to Leadbeater. After the death of the physical
bodies, you should try to pass through the astral rings as speedily as possible,
consistently with their learning utility, and not yield to its refined
pleasures any more than to the physical.
One must not only overcome
physical desire by knowledge of the astral and causal existences, but also
go beyond even these, not merely for the sake of the joy of the spiritual
life, but in order to replace the temporary by something more permanent,
advises Leadbeater.
Sense of Touch
As an astral being, when you are standing on the ground, part of your astral
body would interpenetrate the ground under your feet. However, you will
not be aware of a sensation of hardness. You will never touch the surface of
anything, so as to feel it hard or soft, rough or smooth, hot or cold. On coming
into contact with the interpenetrating substance you would be aware,
however, of a different rate of vibration, which might of course be pleasant
or unpleasant, stimulating or depressing.16 Q-balls can and do exchange
electric charge when they meet. Hence, when two electromagnetic super
magma bodies or objects (composed of Q-balls) come into contact, electromagnetic
rather than mechanical transactions take place.
In astral life there is a diffused luminosity, not obviously coming from any
direction. All astral matter is in itself luminous due to the ‘aurora effect.’ An
astral body may appear like a living fire. If it is also transparent, there will
be no shadows. It is never dark in the astral magmasphere – from the sixth
ring upwards.
Communicating with other Beings
According to Leadbeater, it would not be correct to say that the language
of the astral world is thought-transference – although it may appear to be
so to new entrants to the world. The most that could be said is that it
is the transference of a thought formulated in a particular way. In the
causal magmasphere one formulates a thought and it is instantly transmitted
to the mind of another without any expression in the form of words.
Therefore in that sphere language does not matter in the least; but helpers
working in the astral magmasphere, who have not yet the power to use the
causal vehicle, must depend on the facilities offered by the astral magmasphere
itself. These are situated, as it were, midway between the thoughttransference
of the causal world and the concrete speech of the physical,
but it is still necessary to formulate the thought in words. It is as though
earth ’s eth eric , ast ral & caus al mAg Masph eres | Chapter 18
one showed such formulation to the other party in the dialogue, and he
replied (almost simultaneously, but not quite) by showing in the same way
his formulated reply. For this exchange it is necessary for the two parties
to have a common language; therefore the more languages an astral plane
helper knows, the more useful he is.17
A thought-ball may be sent by one party to another. Near-death experiencers
say that often during visions, information arrives in ‘chunks’ that
register instantaneously in one’s thoughts. Rather than being strung out in
a linear or sequential fashion, like words in a sentence or scenes in a movie;
all the facts, details and images burst into one’s awareness in an instant.
One near-death experiencer described it as ‘bundles of thought.’18
An astral being could grasp at the astral counterpart of the hand of a
living man, but as the two hands would pass through one another without
any sense of contact, there would be no purpose in doing this. So do not
bother to shake hands when you are introduced to an astral being! Send a
‘thought-ball’ instead.
According to Sanduloviciu, plasma spheres can communicate information
by emitting electromagnetic energy, making atoms within other
spheres vibrate at a particular frequency – acting as a vibrating diaphragm
in a telephone to communicate information from one source to another.19 A
similar form of communication would operate in our super magma bodies.
Continuous Learning Opportunities
It is quite possible for any person in the astral magmasphere, after the death
of his physical bodies, to study and to acquire entirely new ideas. There was
a case reported by Leadbeater in which a lady learned ‘music’ there.20
Habits die hard
A man does not rid himself of evil tendencies in the astral world any more
than he would in this life, unless he definitely works to that end. Many of
the desires which are strong and persistent need a physical body for their
satisfaction; and since he no longer has that, they often cause him acute and
prolonged suffering. However, in time they wear themselves out, atrophy
and die-out because of the impossibility of fulfillment. In the same way the
matter of the astral body slowly wears away (ring by ring) and disintegrates
as the locus of awareness is gradually withdrawn from it by half-conscious
efforts. The person, by degrees, gets rid of whatever holds him or her back
from the causal world.21
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
The Lower Causal Magmasphere
Beyond the heaven visited, there was another heaven, one so
brilliant and formless to perception that it appeared only as a
‘streaming of light.’
Emanuel Swedenborg 22
According to Leadbeater, the causal magmasphere of our Earth bears about
the same proportion to the astral as the latter does to the physical. It is also
a huge globe, concentric with the other two, interpenetrating them both,
but extending much further from the centre than does the astral globe.
The causal universe is less dense than the astral universe and is even more
responsive to thoughts and ideas, allowing visualisations to be generated
and maintained easily. It is the function of lower causal matter (in its crystalline
state) to vibrate in response to the modes of the intellect, just as astral
matter (in its liquid state) plays a similar role for desire and emotion.23
Seventh Causal Ring – Family Devotion
This ring is characterised by beings with communal and family affections.
According to Leadbeater, a striking characteristic of this ring for the last few
centuries has been the very large number of beings whose principal unselfish
activity found its outlet through family affection.24
Sixth Causal Ring – Devotional Contemplatives of Personal Gods
This ring is populated by beings with devotion to personal gods – based
entirely on faith, with very little analytical rigor. The striking characteristic
of the sixth ring of the causal world may be described as anthropomorphic
religious devotion. This phase consists essentially in the ‘perpetual’ adoration
of a personal deity – each wrapped up in a cocoon of his own thoughts,
alone with his god, and oblivious of the rest of mankind except in so far as
his affections may associate those whom he loved on Earth with his adoration
of his deity.25
Fifth Causal Ring – Active Devotees
The chief characteristic of this ring is devotion expressing itself in active
work. A nun was constantly occupied in feeding the hungry, healing the
sick, clothing and helping the poor, the peculiarity of each case being that
each person, to whom she administered, at once changed into the appearance
of the Christ, whom she then worshipped with fervent adoration. Two
sisters, one crippled and the other devoted to tending her had discussed
on Earth the religious and philanthropic work they would carry out if they
earth ’s eth eric , ast ral & caus al mAg Masph eres | Chapter 18
were able to do so. In the heaven-world, each is the most prominent figure
in the heaven of the other, the cripple being well and strong, while each
thinks of the other as working with her in carrying out the unrealised
wishes of her Earth life. On this ring are found the higher type of sincere
and devoted missionaries, engaged in the congenial occupation of converting
multitudes of people to the particular religion which they advocated.26
The three lower heavens (as described above) are concerned with the
working out of devotion to personalities, either to one’s family and friends,
or to a personal deity, rather than the wider devotion to humanity for its
own sake.
Fourth Causal Ring – Analytical Religionists
Beings that ‘wake-up’ in this ring would usually have been preoccupied
previously with unselfish and non-egoistic pursuit of knowledge and art
and/or service for service sake. This ring holds entities involved in more
abstract thinking and is the last ring in the lower causal magmasphere. Here
we find beings that bring analytical rigor to their religion. A scientist who
is inspired with religious feelings arising from his scientific work and the
highly analytical religious person would be found here.27
The Higher Causal Magmasphere
The higher causal magmasphere includes the highest three causal rings.
According to Paramahansa Yogananda, the causal world is indescribably
subtle. In order to reach it, you would have to possess tremendous powers
of concentration; so that if you closed your eyes and visualised the physical
and astral Cosmos in all their vastness, you would realise that they exist
only as ideas. If by this concentration you succeeded in converting or resolving
the physical and astral universes with all their complexities into sheer
ideas, you would then reach the causal world. There you will perceive everything
as forms of consciousness, just as a man can close his eyes and realise
that he exists, even though his body is invisible to his physical eyes and is
present only as an idea.
Souls in the causal world recognise one another as individualized points
of joyous Spirit; their thought-forms are the only objects that surround
them. Causal beings see the difference between their bodies and thoughts
to be merely ideas. Both death and rebirth in the causal world are realised
in thought only.28 The causal universe resembles Plato’s ideal mathematical
universe. It is mind-like rather than matter-like – a universe of ‘ideas’ rather
than ‘things.’
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Escape from the multiverse
Yogananda believes that man must undergo countless physical, astral
and causal incarnations before emerging from the three (sets of) bodies.
Beings with unredeemed physical karma shuttle back and forth between
the physical and astral worlds only. Those freed from all physical longings
need no more to return to the gross vibrations of the (physical) Earth. ‘Such
beings have only their astral and causal karma to work out,’ he says.29
Many beings remain for thousands of years in the causal Cosmos.
However, by deeper ecstasies they withdraw from the little causal body and
put on the vastness of the causal Cosmos. No longer does the ‘being’ experience
its joy as an individualized wave of consciousness; it is now integrated
with the luminous cosmic ocean. When a being stops identifying itself with
any personal body and escapes the multiverse forever it becomes the ineffable
Ever-Existent. The soul realises it is Spirit in a region of light-less light,
dark-less dark, thought-less thought 30 (i.e. a superposed ‘region’ of perfect
The density of magma bodies is highest in the physical universe and
peters out to a very low density in the causal universe. Going further would
mean having no personal body and realising yourself as the perfectly symmetric
void – the goal of spiritual evolution in most religions. This ‘personal’
spiritual evolution is in fact a natural process – just as the gradual universal
dissolution of all the universes into the void is a natural process, brought
about by natural forces. The individual can however accelerate or retard the
natural movement.
[Fritz-Albert] Popp thought the zero point field forces a
human being to be a candle. The healthiest body would have
the lowest light and be closest to zero state, the most desirable
state – the closest living things could get to nothingness.

Inter-Sphere Interactions
... be careful not to confuse manifested systems existing on
different planes of being, one within the other [based on
the particle size and wavelength] with the far-flung solar
systems and galaxies on the physical plane with which
astronomers deal.
I K Taimni, 1974 1
Taimni cautions that astrophysical measurements made by scientists currently
are all on the physical plane, on the same plane on which our physical
Earth exists. They belong to the same range of vibrations and particle sizes
and it is therefore possible to establish communications with them through
our (physical) sense organs and instruments like the telescope. The entities
from the astral and causal universes, on the other hand, are in entirely
different bands of frequencies and particle sizes and so quite beyond the
scope of our physical instruments – in other words, part of what scientists
now classify as dark matter and energy. Taimni says the latter can be reached
only from within, through the subtler (bodies and) levels of mind and consciousness.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Reported UFO abductions usually relate to ‘abductions’ of our etheric doubles.
No signs or only very subtle signs are seen on the physical body after
any close encounters with dark matter aliens. It has been commented by researchers
that these ‘abduction scenarios’ have many elements in common
with ‘astral travelling’ and ‘near-death experiences’ – as they should – since
all these events involve magma bodies in parallel super universes and not
the physical body. Telepathy is also frequently associated with abductions.
Kenneth Ring believes that these encounters are ‘imaginal experiences’ – experiences
which are midway between mind and the ‘hard’ physical world. It
is a real but mind-created world individuals experience during near-death
experiences and the mythic realities that shamans encounter during journeys
through subtler dimensions.3
Dark matter spaceships are crystallised astral matter shaped and
sculpted by trillions of thought-waves generated by millions of astral bodies,
belong to contemporary human beings in the physical sphere; who watch
movies and TV and those who have left their physical bodies permanently
and currently reside in the fifth and fourth astral rings. As noted previously,
these rings are fairly high up from the Earth’s surface, yet still clearly
visible from the surface. Most UFO sightings originate from the fifth and
fourth astral rings. As noted previously, in these rings objects are created or
manifested from persistent thought-forms.
Astral entities (with no corresponding physical bodies) or even the
astral bodies of other humans (who are asleep) can easily assume the shape
and character of ‘aliens’ – seen in the movies or TV. These aliens are dark
matter entities who use dark matter spaceships – which generally do not
register on the known electromagnetic spectrums – but can do so if their
frequencies are brought down to the lower etheric range. If the frequency
approximates the frequency of the lower etheric body, many human beings
would be able to see them. If the frequency is brought down further, they
would register on radar screens.
One of the objections to UFO sightings is that it will be almost impossible
to travel the distances to even the nearest star with a planetary system
which could harbour intelligent life. These UFOs do not originate from our
universe, but from higher-energy super mind-like universes (which interpenetrate
our universe and where the rules of engagement are semi-classical
to near-quantum). It is easier for any ‘alien’ from an Earth-based super
astral universe to visit us than someone from another planetary system in
our physical universe. Furthermore, depending on the magmasphere they
are coming from (etheric, astral or causal) the nature of their manifestations
would also be different. Many thought-forms generated by human
beings populate Earth’s etheric, astral and causal magmaspheres and are
inter-sph ere interactio ns | Chapter 19
‘picked-up’ and used by inhabitants there. We will realise that most of the
encounters with aliens or ghosts are really sporadic encounters with beings
from parallel interpenetrating Earth-based magmaspheres.
There is no indication that the UFO phenomenon is
extraterrestrial. Rather than being from other star systems,
there is mounting evidence that UFOs come from a multiverse
which is all around us, and of which we stubbornly refused to
consider in spite of the evidence available to us for centuries.
Jacques Vallee, Dimensions: A Casebook of Alien Contact 4
Religious Apparitions
Religious apparitions would generally emanate from the third astral ring
(the sphere of ‘religious communities’). The same explanation applies to
them as for UFOs. Trillions of thought-forms are generated by the religious
in this ring above the Earth’s surface, creating religious etheric and astral
entities and icons.
There are also previous human beings who led a spiritual life and who
have a genuine desire to interact with human beings on Earth to accelerate
their ‘development’ just as there are many such people on Earth helping
other people. They have found ways to manifest themselves for short periods
within our electromagnetic spectrum in our physical-etheric sphere
by attracting physical-etheric particles, which increases the density of the
magma body and lowers its frequency. The Report of the General Information
and Complaints Department, Zeitun, Egypt states in an official statement
issued in 1968 that ‘Official investigations have been carried out with
the result that it has been considered an undeniable fact that the Blessed
Virgin Mary has been appearing on Zeitun Church in a clear and bright
luminous body seen by all present in front of the church, whether Christian
or Moslem.’
This task uses up a lot of energy for these beings and presumably, based
on anecdotal evidence; they would need permission from the administration
in the relevant heaven. Hence, their appearances are rare. If they are
residing in higher rings or spheres, it constitutes a considerable sacrifice on
their part to ‘come down’ (literally, in terms of frequency) to communicate
with us on something that they really believe in. However, they are not
omniscient. They are evolving in the relevant magmaspheres, as much as
we are evolving in this sphere due to natural universal forces. Their previous
experience on Earth as human beings and their subsequent experience
constitute a unique experience which they want to share with others. Events
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
that are generated under this category include Marian apparitions and other
religious apparitions which are public in nature. Michael Talbot says that
Marian visions are not appearances of the historical Mary, but psychic holographic
projections created by the collective unconscious.5
Balls of Light
Fatima is now well known to the Catholic world. ‘Our Lady’ first appeared
to three small children tending sheep near Fatima, Portugal on May 13,
1917 and asked that they return to the site on the thirteenth of each
month until October. Before this, in the spring of 1916, the children were
tending their sheep at a rocky knoll not far from their home. A sudden
strong wind on a calm day startled the three peasant children out of a
game they were playing and they saw across the valley a dazzling globe of
light like a miniature sun, gliding slowly towards them. As it approached,
the ball of light gradually resolved itself into a brilliantly shining young
man. According to the children they saw ‘a light whiter than snow in
the shape of a transparent* young man, who was more brilliant than a
crystal struck by the rays of the Sun.’ He identified himself as the ‘Angel
of Peace’ and enjoined them to recite a prayer. Then he disappeared by
fading away. (* Magma bodies can change their degree of opacity.)
On 13 September 1917, an assembled crowd saw a bright ball in the sky
coming from the east, which glided majestically into view for a few seconds
but then vanished, as far as the crowd was concerned. The children, however,
see a luminous globe hovering on a little oak tree. The Virgin speaks to the
children then returns the way she had come – in the shape of an easily visible
luminous ovoid moving away in the direction of the Sun, ‘calmly but with a
certain speed,’ before disappearing. The plasma ovoid, as we have discussed
earlier (in Chapter 12), is the basic form of intelligent beings in the astral and
causal magmaspheres.
Several researchers have pointed out that the Marian apparitions have
many features of UFO encounters.6 Jacques Vallee has argued that the ‘glowing
globes of light’ can be interpreted as vehicles and were regarded as such
by some of the people who saw them.
Most of the ghosts encountered originate in the etheric and astral rings
coincident with the Earth’s surface.
Etheric Ghosts
As mentioned previously, the etheric double may not necessarily dissolve
immediately on the death of the physical-biomolecular body. It may take the
inter-sph ere interactio ns | Chapter 19
whole of the ‘bardo’ period for these to dissolve. In this context, the bardo is
the interval between the first death (of the physical-biomolecular body) and
the second death (of the physical-etheric body). Although, Tibetan Buddhists
state a maximum of 49 days for the bardo period, the 14th Dalai Lama
himself admits that there is evidence that this may extend to even more than
one year7– which accords with observations from other cultures. As long as
the etheric double is not dissolved, the person will not be aware of the next
higher energy universe (usually the astral universe). It will be ‘stuck’ inside
the physical universe – visiting familiar places.
The person may intentionally or unintentionally meet living persons
who have projected their (higher) etheric doubles during their sleep at that
moment. When they wake up, most living persons will describe ‘dreams’
when they met with their recently deceased. The appearance of the etheric
double will be very close to their (gross) Earthly appearances since they have
not really left the physical universe (unlike the astral body which may be
quite different from their earlier appearances).
Astral Ghosts
Although less common than etheric doubles, astral beings inhabiting the
sixth ring of the astral magmasphere (which is coincident with the Earth’s
crust) may also be encountered.
In the end, it became a choice between entertaining ghosts or
working in a multi-dimensional space, and physicists, who are
traditionally horrified of the metaphysical, chose the latter.
David Peat 8
Using ordinary perception within our spacetime means that certain
beings, who would appear quite ordinary in a higher dimensional spacetime,
would appear to have a ghostly appearance in our frame of reference. If we
could develop our perceptions to include more dimensions, these apparent
ghosts would turn out to be seen as ordinary beings – inhabiting a parallel
inter-penetrating universe.
Many familiar ghostly sightings appear as (clothed) humans. However,
one striking feature is that these appearances normally lack detail
and are ‘blurry.’ It is like an unfocussed image on a screen. A person with
myopia would see blurry figures when he removes his spectacles. However,
when he puts on his spectacles, these blurry figures become concrete,
definite images. Similarly, the average human being would see ‘ghosts’ as
blurred images only because he has not developed his sight in his other
bodies corresponding in frequency to the type of ghosts.

Collisionless Ghosts
You cannot ‘collide’ with ghosts because they are composed of ‘collisionless’
plasma. However, electromagnetic effects can be felt as their bodies
glide near or through your own electromagnetic magma bodies.
We don’t know what the remaining 90% of matter is, but this
‘dark matter’ differs from ordinary matter in being able to pass
right through both ordinary matter and other dark matter, just
like ghosts are supposed to pass through stone walls.
Theoretical Astrophysics Group,
University of Oxford 9
Ron Cowen says, ‘Evidence indicates that when speeding fragments of
dark matter meet, they don’t collide as other matter does but pass right
through each other, ghostlike.’10
Etheric ghosts of human beings are more frequently seen than astral
ghosts because they are closer in frequency to our world. Astral and other
higher energy bodies are usually not sighted because of their much higher
frequencies. The bodies of these ghosts vary in density – depending on which
magma body is remaining near the Earth after the death of the biomolecular
body or when a person is sleeping. Hence, some of the so-called ‘ghosts’
may actually be of persons who have still not left their biomolecular bodies
completely (whom we normally refer to as the ‘living’).
Life in the sixth astral ring is like ordinary physical life, minus the
physical body and its necessities. This astral ring would have structures
similar to the physical structures which mould it. In other words, many of
the astral beings at this level would be occupying the same houses that we
do – being astral replicas of our physical houses – much like in the movie
‘The Others’ in 2001, starring Nicole Kidman and written by Alejandro
Amenábar. By studying the nature of the matter in this ring, we would have
a better understanding of these ghosts.
Ghosts seen in buildings and other surface structures are actually all around
us but only become visible in certain conditions. More frequent sightings
may occur at night simply because the form of a ghost ‘fades’ in bright sunlight
– using our biological eyes. They are more clearly seen at night – but
they are all around us all the time – just as stars are in the sky all the time
but become visible (to us on Earth) at night. Historically, therefore, we have
associated ghosts with the night.

Pleasant and Unpleasant Ghosts
The beings which we call ‘ghosts’ conduct their lives just as we conduct
our lives. Just as there are pleasant people and unpleasant people, there
are pleasant etheric and astral ghosts and unpleasant ones. The literature
often highlights the unpleasant encounters. Nevertheless, considering that
beings in the sixth astral ring are generally those who have preoccupied
themselves with mainly denser thoughts and emotions – close in frequency
to the biomolecular body, a certain lack of patience and immaturity can be
expected from them. Also, etheric ghosts who are unable to carry on with
the death process would most likely have unresolved psychological issues.
Most of the pleasant and helpful beings emanate from higher rings. An
unpleasant person in this life, however, would probably be an unpleasant
etheric or astral ghost, immediately after his death. A pleasant person in
this life would probably be a pleasant etheric or astral ghost, immediately
after his death.
According to Leadbeater, one difficulty of the recently disembodied is
that they usually require considerable experience before they can clearly
identify objects and get used to their surroundings – just like a baby which
requires learning to use its muscles to walk. The stone-throwing, trampling,
or vague movements of purported ghosts in haunted locations are
attempts by recently disembodied persons to come to terms with their new
environments. A person will be even more bewildered if he has not known
something of such matters before death.11
Many times we also hear of ghosts who (from our perspective) give out
a ‘devilish laughter’ when they encounter people who are extremely nervous
when sighting ghosts. One would imagine that if you were playing the
role of a ghost, you would equally be amused by someone who becomes
hilariously nervous on seeing you. Due to anomalies in inter-spheric communications,
the sound of the laughter becomes distorted into a ‘devilish’
or ‘eerie’ scream. Some of these ghosts may take advantage of this fear in
laymen – just for amusement, perhaps.
Many of these dark matter ghosts, also, may not agree with us that they
have died; or that they are ‘ghosts.’ In fact, they are right and we are wrong
because only their physical bodies have disintegrated. Classifying ‘ghosts’
as belonging to ‘dead’ persons is like considering a human being with only
a leg amputated dead. Only their physical-biomolecular bodies are dead. In
fact, they are more alive than us since they have activated and are conscious
of their higher energy bodies. Medical definitions, such as ‘clinically dead’
are only relevant to biomolecular bodies – not the accompanying magma

Electromagnetic Interactions with Recent Departees from
this Universe
It has been argued earlier that the etheric double and astral bodies are electromagnetic
bodies. A person who has recently lost his biomolecular body
and whose etheric double is still intact may have control over his electromagnetic
body to cause electromagnetic interferences. The person may lack
mechanical control over objects but he may have sporadic control over electrical
and electronic devices – for example light switches and computers.
Lights may go on and off without any mechanical change in the position
of the light switch. Similarly, messages may appear on the computer
screen without any movement of keys in the computer keyboard. Some have
even claimed that broadcasts of various beings from parallel spheres have
been transmitted and received by television. This is not inconceivable – considering
the electromagnetic nature of parallel super universes and their
beings. The ability to receive broadcasts from low frequency (interpenetrating)
super universes may be possible within this century.
Invisible Helpers and ‘Angels’
Invisible beings that help others in accidents or in other situations are popularly
described as ‘angels.’ These invisible helpers are most likely astral
beings inhabiting the sixth astral ring, which is coincident with the Earth’s
crust. They could even be former friends or family members who have lost
their physical bodies or people who are asleep. Many people, even in our
physical Earth, go out of their way to help others. But how do these invisible
helpers know when we are in trouble?
Leadbeater says it is possible for a being functioning on the astral plane
to be aware of a physical accident even when he cannot hear the physical cry.
‘Physical’ sounds produce an effect upon the astral plane; though I do not
think, he says, that we should be quite correct in calling that effect ‘sound.’
This is quite correct, since we are actually talking about acoustical waves in
magma bodies. Leadbeater says that any cry which had in it a strong feeling
or emotion would cause dramatic changes in the astral environment.
This is consistent with the nature of the astral environment, as previously
discussed. In the case of an accident, Leadbeater says, the rush of emotion
caused by the pain or the fright would flame out like a great light, and could
not fail to attract the attention of a seer if he were anywhere near. Leadbeater
gives us an example where a boy who fell over a cliff was supported
and comforted by an invisible helper until physical help arrived.12 There
are many such stories – almost all evidencing encounters with beings from
parallel universes.

Meditation and Magma Bodies
Meditation – Life in the Fast Lane
The journey from the lower energy body to higher energy bodies and from the
lower energy sphere to the higher energy spheres can be travelled in a gradual
natural path. In this case, events are longer apart and follow natural growth
patterns. Alternatively, an accelerated growth path can be undertaken with
serious meditation. Serious meditation involves the same journey through
exercises which allow a person to change states of consciousness, bodies and
universes. In the gradual (natural) path, the astral body is developed while in
the physical bodies. When the physical bodies die, the astral bodies live on and
develop the causal bodies. At any point, though, the individual can decide (by
his intentions and lifestyle) to go up to more subtle levels or down to grosser
levels. There will therefore be journeys to and from the physical, astral and
causal universes over thousands or millions of years. If the individual decides,
he or she can escape the multiverse altogether by circumambulating into the
void – after the dissipation of the causal bodies. These processes, which take
place over very long periods of time, can actually take place in a few lifetimes
through meditation.
In meditation the content of the memory in astral and causal bodies (represented
by samskaras and vasanas) are dissipated while in the biomolecular
body. When the biomolecular body dies, there is only a very short journey
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
through the astral and causal universes, before realising the unmanifest
perfectly symmetric void. This is an express route, an accelerated escape
from the manifest multiverse.
Quantum Processes
The idea that our minds are generated from quantum processes, rather
than from purely neural processes in the brain is becoming more popular.
The particular characteristic that has been singled out to explain the similarity
between our minds and quantum nature is the superposition principle
in quantum mechanics. The superposition principle, when applied to
minds, explains free-will and creativity which are the chief characteristics
which distinguish the brain of a human being from a twentieth-century
However, the chief objection to the notion that quantum processes can
play any part in generating our minds is that our brains are ‘too hot and
wet’ to allow for quantum phenomena. It has already been pointed out that
the journey upwards to higher energy universes is similar in many ways to
the journey downwards to the microscopic realms of sub-atomic particles.
The quantum processes that we experience are therefore largely the product
of our higher energy bodies, rather than the low energy biomolecular
Nevertheless, the biomolecular body does contain some measure of
quantum activity – for example, the retina is constantly being bombarded
with photons. The measurement of photonic activity in the retina by the
brain involves an activity with quantum objects (the photons). Weird quantum
behavior in the biomolecular body is therefore generally limited. One
of the criticisms of the idea of quantum consciousness within our biomolecular
brain that was put forward by Roger Penrose, Stuart Hameroff and
others is that microtubules (in which quantum consciousness is said to be
generated) are found in every cell in the body – including our toes. If that
is so, why is consciousness only associated with the biomolecular brain?
Many attempts have been made to investigate quantum processes in microtubules
in cells.1
The problem of entanglement and decoherence in a ‘classical world’
like ours is enormous. However, in semi-classical and near-quantum
worlds – in which the higher energy bodies reside, quantum behavior is
often encountered. Classical behavior in such quantum-like universes
would seem to be ‘weird’ just as quantum behavior in our classical universe
is seen to be ‘weird.’ The place to look for quantum activities within
our bodies is therefore in our higher energy magma bodies. In an interview
with Jeffrey Mishlove, Karl Pribram said that quantum-like phenomena or
medit atio n and magm a bo dies | Chapter 20
the rules of quantum mechanics apply all the way through to our psychological
processes. To that extent, he said, ‘We have an explanation, or perhaps
a parallel, to the kind of experiences that people have called spiritual
Many meditation techniques increase quantum coherence in higher
energy bodies. For example, a mantra said attentively or a prayer repeated
in a ‘rosary,’ may cause Q-balls to fall in-phase and fuse in the (immediately)
higher energy magma bodies. In this case, a classical behavior
(repeating mantras) may induce quantum behavior. The effects of such
mental manipulations can have physical effects on all bodies, including the
biomolecular body.
Synchrony of Neuronal Firings
Johnjoe McFadden says that there is abundant evidence from EE G and MEG
studies that synchronous firing in different regions of the cortex (to generate
an EE G wave) correlates with awareness and attention.3 Many meditative
techniques enhance the synchrony of neural firings in the biomolecular
body. In fact, pulsed waves of neural firings can be observed occurring during
meditation, according to Judith Hooper and Dick Teresi.4 The characteristic
brain waves (alpha, beta, theta and delta) vary with a subject’s
alertness and are the result of synchronous firing of many thousands of
neurons from different regions of the brain’s cerebral cortex. The firing
of individual neurons cannot be generating them as the signal from any
single neuron would be far too weak to be detected. Meditators who claim
to heightened and ‘expanded’ awareness may now have scientific support.
If awareness is enhanced by synchrony of neuronal firings and disrupted
by a lack of synchrony, techniques to improve synchrony must necessarily
‘expand’ consciousness. Can prolonged exercises to improve synchrony
affect other bodies?
Synchronisation of Magma Body’s Frequencies
Leadbeater reports that although an average frequency can be made out for
each super magma body, various regions of the super magma bodies can
pulsate at difference frequencies.
According to him, a ‘more developed man’ has five rates of vibration
within the astral body. The case of the majority of people, however, is far
worse. In the astral bodies of many people, he says, one might easily observe
a ‘fragmented’ magma body with fifty rates or more. According to him, the
(astral) body should be divided into a few fairly definite areas; each pulsating
steadily at its normal rate, but instead, for many cases he has seen, its surface
is usually broken up into a multiplicity of little whirlpools and cross194
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
currents, all battling one against the other in mad confusion.5
The crystalline (mental) and liquid (emotional) states of the various
super magma bodies are mapped onto various parts of the physical-biomolecular
(or biochemical) brain. Synchronous neural firings in the brain
induce the rates of vibrations in higher energy bodies to be increasingly
synchronised. Through meditative exercises, the different regions of our
super magma bodies can be made to beat or pulsate in synchrony. The bodies
become less fragmented and more coherent – more like a laser than an
ordinary light bulb.
Effects of Advanced Meditation on Magma Bodies
Meditation and MHD (Magneto-Hydrodynamics)
With more revolutions of charged particles around the meridians per hour,
magnetic fields become stronger; giving higher energy bodies a more definite
shape since these fields serve to confine the plasma. It will obviously
give better control over the movement of particles which generate and sustain
the various emotional and mental states. One of the practical goals of
Qigong and Yoga masters is to increase the strength of the magnetic fields
by increasing the speed and therefore the frequency of circulations of prana
around the established circuits in the various super magma bodies. Maybe,
this is what gives rise to a ‘magnetic personality.’
It is quite common in sitting meditation to join hands – this effectively
connects the poles of the relevant magnetic field, creating a circuit
in the super magma body for qi or prana to flow (as Birkeland currents). In
Reiki and Christian ‘Praise and Worship’ sessions, it is quite common for a
number of practitioners to join hands creating a larger circuit through which
qi or prana can flow – effectively generating a Birkeland current which flows
through the practitioners’ super magma bodies. Practitioners feel heat and
a flow in their bodies which has an electrical feel.
Electric Shocks during Meditation
Electric shocks during meditation offer more evidence of invisible electromagnetic
super magma bodies that are coupled with our biomolecular body.
Plasma tends to separate into regions according to temperature, density,
magnetic field strength, particle types and other physical properties. Wherever
these regions are in relative motion, they generate electrical currents.
Scientists say that plasma in relative motion in one part of the universe
can produce prodigious amounts of electrical energy which may be transferred
over many billions of light years to burst suddenly from a very small
and localised region representing the ‘circuit load.’ The same phenomenon
can occur within our super magma bodies – particularly in a less coherent
medit atio n and magm a bo dies | Chapter 20
and more fragmented body where different regions of the magma body in
relative motion are pulsating at different rates – resulting in what is known
as ‘spontaneous human combustion.’ In many recorded and photographed
cases of spontaneous human combustion, parts of the ordinarily visible
biomolecular bodies are vaporised by an influx of energy. The energies of
our super magma bodies far exceed anything the biomolecular body can
Plasma metaphysics observes that the centre of the magma body
(coinciding somewhat with the lower abdomen of the physical-biomolecular
body) contains a pool of the highest density charged magnetic plasma
(originating from the fiery core of the Earth). (This is normally identified
as ‘kundalini’ or ‘Earth qi’ in the metaphysical literature.) It is separated
from a pool of lower density magnetic plasma of an opposite polarity near
the head (this plasma can be identified loosely with ‘prana’ and ‘Heaven
qi’ which mainly originates from the Sun). Hence, the torso of the magma
body, which contains these two pools of oppositely charged particles in
a colloidal medium at its ends, operates as a capacitor. The charges from
currents within the magma body can build-up in this capacitor in a fragmented
lower physical-etheric body. When a certain threshold is reached
an electrical discharge, lasting only a split-second, occurs in the magma
body. This can impact the physical-biomolecular body, causing it to suddenly
combust or experience a sudden surge of electromagnetic energy
or heat.
Scientists currently have no credible theory on why these well-documented
cases occur. When this happens during meditation it can pose a
significant danger to meditators who cannot or are not trained to control
the surge in electromagnetic and heat energy. Uncontrolled surges of
electromagnetic energy can damage the cells of the biomolecular body. If
it is close to any vital organ such as the heart, it can cause death. If it is
near the brain, it can cause a breakdown of neural processes which may
result in insanity. It can lead to spontaneous combustion in certain parts
of the body.
It is important in these cases to interrupt or absorb any flows of
charged particles (or currents) from the body. Hence, Yoga practitioners
generally use insulators such as a wooden platform or animal skin to sit on.
According to Annie Besant, ‘real Yoga’ is as dangerous to an impure and
undisciplined body as a match to a cask of gunpowder.6 An undisciplined
person whose magma body is fragmented into various electromagnetic
domains with very different frequencies, faces a higher risk of damage or
death caused by electrical or heat phenomena during meditation.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Your body must be able to withstand the high voltage of this
energy. Some of the delicate sinews of your body may be
damaged if the voltage is too high for you to bear.
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh 7
According to Rajneesh, the use of wooden platforms for meditation had
no other purposes than the fact that they were non-conductors. Deerskins
and leopard skins were used for the same reason: so that energy that is
released by meditation should not give a shock. ‘A man can be killed by
electric shock,’ says Rajneesh. ‘Therefore, the sadhak [or Yoga practitioner]
puts on wooden sandals and slept on a wooden platform.’8
Heat during Meditation
Tibetan Buddhist monks practice ‘tumo’, a meditative practice, which
generates large amounts of heat which enable them to sit in meditation
through-out the night in snow-capped mountains without dying or suffering
health problems. These feats have been documented and captured
on video by Dr Herbert Benson. Benson, a cardiologist by training who
authored the 1975 bestseller ‘The Relaxation Response’9, the director of
Harvard’s Mind/Body Medical Institute and the lead scientist in a tumo
experiment, journeyed to Tibet to study the practice of tumo in which
Tibetan monks were able to take sheets dipped in frozen water, wrap them
around their unclothed bodies, and then dry them by mentally raising their
body temperature. Each monk, situated in a freezing environment, dried
one sheet after another at times reaching twenty sheets at a single session.
These feats were accurately measured and recorded and a documentary
containing the scene was produced. It is another piece of evidence of a
surge in an unknown energy during meditation. The super magma bodies
of the monk, no doubt, radiated a large amount of heat energy to keep the
biomolecular body warm.
Heat generation is in fact quite a common occurrence for most people
who engage in meditation, prayer, Yoga or Qigong for long hours. Scientific
experiments have also been conducted which show that the temperature of
certain parts of the body can be raised or lowered simply by visualising an
appropriate scene. For example, to raise the temperature one could visualise
oneself next to a blazing fire. To lower the temperature one could visualise
lying down in snow on a snow-capped mountain. It was noticed during
these visualisations that the temperature at the fingertips were raised or
lowered by several degrees during the experiments. Where does this energy
which raises the temperature come from? The obvious answer would be the
heat radiated from our super magma bodies.
medit atio n and magm a bo dies | Chapter 20
The modern Catholic saint , Padre Pio, was known to have very high body
temperatures even when he was not ill. 104 degrees is considered high and
119 would fry your brains – if it didn’t kill you outright! However, according
to Reverend John Schug, in his book on ‘Padre Pio,’ the saint’s temperature
is known to have risen to 125, which not only did not kill him, it didn’t even
make him delirious. Schug was actually present on one occasion when Padre
Pio’s temperature was so high it broke the thermometer. ‘Ginsie Lewis’ has
an interesting theory about this:
If spontaneous human combustion, where a person suddenly
starts on fire for no reason and burns up completely, bones
and all, leaving behind a scorched spot on the chair he was
sitting in, a pile of ashes, and maybe one shoe with his foot
still in it, is actually a true thing, this abnormally high fever
business [of Padre Pio] could be related to it.
‘Ginsie Lewis’10
While she was rapt in prayer, the community saw Ven. Serafina
Di Dio face glowing like a red flame and her eyes sparkled fire.
‘It burned them if they but touched her.’ She herself declared
that she was consumed and shrivelled with heat; her blood
was as molten lead in her veins.
Joan Carroll Cruz 11
Physical Enlightenment during Meditation
Cruz reports that there is a mountain of literature which records the luminous
phenomenon which sometimes accompanies religious ecstasy. A saint’s
head may be aglow, a light might encompass the entire body, or rays either
come toward or proceed from the body, she says. Sometimes called ‘luminous
effluvia,’ it is recounted numerous times in the lives of saints and has
been described and attested to by persons of unquestionable integrity. Pope
Benedict XIV admits to the miraculous nature of lights and rays mentioned
in the lives of saints by declaring, ‘There are hundreds of such examples to
be found in our hagiographical records.’12
Another well-known example of physical enlightenment is the ‘transfiguration’
of Jesus, as narrated in the New Testament (of the Christian
Bible). These phenomena are the result of an increase in energy in the electromagnetic
etheric double which occasionally manifests light nearer to the
ordinarily visible electromagnetic spectrum.
jay alfred | ou r invisib le bo dies
Electromagnetic Force Fields that Shield
Qigong practitioners are taught regularly how to ‘erect’ a force field around
their bodies by manipulating their ‘breath.’ A force field that covers the
whole body is sometimes called a ‘golden shroud’ in the relevant literature.
In fire-walking ceremonies, this field when created around the feet helps
to prevent contact between the hot coals and biological tissues. During
these events, the etheric double, fortified with increased energy, generates a
strong electromagnetic field which shields the biomolecular body.
Superfluidity in Magma Bodies
People in hyperarousal states of ten feel as they are
effortlessly channeling vast quantities of energy through
their consciousness, resulting in the quintessential ‘flow’
Andrew Newberg and Eugene d’ Aquili, Neuroscientists13
Superfluidity is a quantum phenomenon where fluids flow with no viscosity.
In ideal magneto-hydrodynamics plasmas are treated as having zero resistivity,
which is very similar to superconduction and superfluidity that
arises in condensates. During prolonged advanced meditation, this analogous
superfluidity in our higher energy bodies gives us the psychological
and physical sensations of a ‘flow.’ The feeling of ‘flowing’ with the universe
or the ‘Tao’ and the simultaneous upsurge of energy is a common feedback
among practitioners who have practiced years of regular meditation. This
suggests that meditators are experiencing the sensations of analogous superconduction
and superfluidity in their higher energy magma bodies when
they are experiencing this ‘flow.’
Non-Conventional Absorption of Energy
Inedia is a non-conventional method of absorbing energy directly from the
environment frequently during prayer and meditation. The etheric double
absorbs energy during meditation when it becomes superconductive to solar
qions. The energy is stored in the etheric body and can be transported to
the biochemical body through the (‘acupuncture’) meridian system in the
etheric double to sustain the life of the biomolecular body, making normal
animal or plant food (i.e. third-party biochemical energy) redundant. This
is a remarkable finding. It would mean that the biomolecular body can convert
qi into biomass – in a process similar to photosynthesis in plants. Sufi
mystic Muhyi’d Din Ibn’ Arabi who lived in the thirteenth century recalls:
medit atio n and magm a bo dies | Chapter 20
‘It was impossible for me to eat, but I did not feel hunger! This
contemplation took the place of all nourishment. My good
appearances astonished my friends who knew of my total abstinence.
The fact is that I continued for a long time without food,
not experiencing either hunger or thirst …’14
San Giovani Rotondo, an American priest who was at the Italian friary
where the Catholic saint Padre Pio was residing, recollects that Padre
Pio spoke at the dinner table about the time he was sick for eight days. He
took nothing but a little water during the whole illness. Someone told him
to weigh himself after he got up from the eight days fast. He had gained!
… Padre Pio laughed heartily and said … ‘I think I’ll have to eat more to
These ‘inedic’ saints are healthy despite not taking the normal amount
of food. Medical science tells us that the shortage of vitamins and minerals
can lead to serious illnesses. Yet these saints live long and healthy lives –
and even maintain or put on weight (we are not talking about the lean and
haggard type here). There is clearly an energy intake aside from food and
water; an energy discrepancy if we go by what is known to mainstream
Science. According to Patricia Treece, saints often evidence discrepancies
between intake of food and rest and outgo of energy which cannot be
explained except by the theory that they tap into another energy source that
does for them what food and sleep do for us.16 Men (and women), literally,
‘do not live on bread alone.’
The traditional ‘Many Bodies-Many Universes’ theory of metaphysics is
enduring because it agrees with the evidence. Science in the past few centuries
has been dominated by work in only a narrow range of the spectrum of manifest
reality. As Leadbeater has pointed out – metaphysicists and physicists are
like two groups of people working on opposite sides of a mountain to build
a tunnel. At some point, the tunnels will meet and the path will be open for
anyone who wants to travel it – anyone who wants to go beyond the narrow
confines of unenlightened Science.
This century will change mindsets and may promise communications
with the lowest frequency spheres and rings, interpenetrating the dense physical
Earth. Just as Man ventured beyond the seas to chart the planet; landed on
the Moon and is now planning trips to Mars; the day will come when travellers
to parallel universes (our families and friends who have left their physical bodies
permanently) will be contacted through electromagnetic means. The mind
boggles to think of such a scenario.
This book has provided persuasive evidence that we do have bodies that
are currently invisible to us and that Earth is more than just its dense physical
form. Science will continue to throw up new evidence to support these
findings in the coming decades. The metaphysics of today will become the
enlightened Science of tomorrow.
The findings will impact every area of human life, from religious views
to environmental and ethical issues; from our ideas of UFOs to our relationships
with ghosts; from the nature of our own existence to the nature of this
weird universe we call home. We will not be able to view our own history and
scriptures in the same light. There will be disputes and new rationalizations
to accommodate the old.
How do we view death now? If there is life after death, how do we view the
| epilogue
death penalty for criminals or euthanasia? And if indeed, we do find, like
the inedic saints, that dark matter and energy can be absorbed and changed
into biomass; will there be an end to hunger in the world? Would ‘genetic’
engineering be extended to the physical-etheric nucleus? Can karma be
manipulated by electromagnetic means? Is there life in Mars? (Have we
checked its astral counterpart?) Whatever the intellectual breakthroughs,
now as in history, there is a need for ethics and a respect for the dignity of
individuals; a need for laws and protection for the weak.
Nature has outdone Man in every conceivable way. Even our latest technology
looks puny in the face of the vast multiverse – with universes in all
directions and frequencies; and with intelligent life in all forms and scales.
Our complicated machines, computers and vehicles would be redundant in
another universe where space and time are fluid. From plasma to mobile
communications technology; from holography to virtual realities; from
memory storage in the fabric of spacetime to sub-atomic particle memory;
from photonics and electronics to super-photonics and super-electronics
– the list does not end. Nature beats us – hands down! The bravado that
came with the birth of modern Science has to give way to an Einsteinian
humility and awe; and a willingness to go beyond the confines of what can
be seen and measured. A sign used to hang in Albert Einstein’s office: ‘Not
everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can
be counted.’
