This book consistently and uniformly explains the Big Bang, atoms, the universe, the sun, the earth, life, and the evolution of humanity and societies in terms of energy.
- Book Intro
The general principles regarding the phenomena of the world that religions had explained in the past are now transitioning into the realm of science. The great power of science is the unity of language. Despite the enormous advances in science and technology, however, the one aspect that is still unconnected and uninterpreted is the purpose of human existence. This book unifies science and transcendental phenomena in terms of energy. In other words, the birth of the universe through the Big Bang, the generation of atoms and molecules, the stars and galaxies, the sun, the earth, life, and the series of processes leading to human evolution are all linked to transcendental phenomena. Christian mysticism, Buddhism, Islamism, Hinduism, yoga, Jewish Kabbalah, Eastern Taoism, Xian Taoism, and Zen breathing all share a common point of energy conversion through respiration. This is related to mitochondrial electrochemical gradient and the action potential of the brain. The intensive focusing causes electromagnetic syntonization and increases the possibility of nuclear fusion via a tunneling effect. This book is divided into four parts. The first part examines the birth of the universe from the Big Bang and the earth's evolution through the Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic periods. The second part focuses on the importance of the evolutionary processes and principles of the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, and endocrine systems. The third part introduces mystical texts (Hyemyeongkyeong and Seongmyeongkyuji) of Eastern Taoism; Buddhist sādhanā and mysticism; Jewish Kabbalah; Hindu Bhagavad Gita; Yoga Sūtras of Patañjali; Plato's mysticism; Plotinus; Origen and Christian mysticism; Catholic contemplative prayer; Sufism, or Islamic mysticism; and the neidan meditation of The Secret of the Golden Flower. It also delves into meditation and brain science, light and quantum biology, quantum psychology, and mind coherence. The fourth and final part explores the significance of transcendental phenomena in the community. The book stipulates that if we can realize that transcendence is the purpose of human existence through scientific principles, then social structures can also be restructured around the concept of transcendence.
- About the Author
Lee Kwangjo began his life as a vegetarian as his physical constitution changed due to a Danjeon breathing exercise (hypogastric breathing). In 1999, he established the very first vegetarian club in Korea. While he was conducting a vegetarian campaign, he realized the necessity of dietetic information, and received his PhD in food and nutrition at Seoul National University. Establishing the Korea Vegetarian Nutrition Research Institute, he is recently focusing on studies of the neuroendocrine effects of fasting, autophagy, bioenergy, and nutrition.
