Could this account for the considerable amount of delinquency and vandalism associated with those who live in the large London apartment blocks resulting from slum clearance?
There is probably some connection, but this aspect has not been researched.
Since there are a number of distinctive cells or classes of cells in the body each class of cells has a creative instinct or creative power and consciousness that is slightly different from others. In other words, that which makes a cell of bone matter different from a cell of matter composing the root of a hair is not only the slight difference in chemical composition or negative part of the cell, but also the difference in the creative consciousness of that cell. This creative consciousness tends to make the cells seek like companionship, so they congregate to foster and help one another in expressing the creative instinct in them. It is difficult to deal with a complex matter of this nature by a simple question and answer formula and those really interested are referred to the appropriate correspondence course where the subject is dealt with at length.
In your correspondence course it is stated that human blood cells are actually cells and not the almost flattened disks described in many medical books. Is this so?
We stand by our statement which accords with modern metaphysical research, although it is not of prime importance and may be wholly ignored without any injury to the efficiency of this knowledge. What is of prime importance is our further statement that the red blood cells have a nucleus, which is also contrary to what most other schools and systems teach, and this cannot be ignored without losing a great value of the basic principles of our teachings. To ignore the positive nucleus of the blood cell is to eliminate from your thinking and from your understanding a most essential principle in the comprehension of the cause and nature of life, and the cause and nature of disease and its treatment or cure. While on this subject there is one other point about the red corpuscles to which we wish to give very great emphasis, and that is that each one of these blood cells has within it a creative form of consciousness, or a creative power or energy, that is of a divine nature and wholly separate from any chemical quality resident in the physical negative part of the cell. It is not the positive energy alone that vitalizes the red blood cell and makes it important in the maintenance of life, but also this consciousness, this constructive creative power. It is an instinctive energy whose sole purpose and sole activity is to create and build.
Yes. When all its bodily functions are working properly the body is so perfectly attuned with the universe that it is indeed like a miniature universe itself. In fact it can be said that each cell of the body is akin to the universe and in rhythmic harmony with it. This rhythm can be disturbe by violations of principles, such as overeating, undereating or wrong eating and drinking, lack of exercise, overexhaustion, overindulgence, indolence and many other causes. However, lack of harmonization or resonance comes about mostly through defective mental attitudes.
It has been said that people who live close to the ground, such as New Zealanders who generally have one level houses, are healthier than those who live in high rise apartment buildings. Is this so?
It is not so much a matter of physical health as being in a better state of balance. The earth is a magnetic ball which emanates a force we call erthmegan. Land masses, as well as sea areas, have varying amounts of magnetism, a cause for continual concern by seafarers who have to take this into account when steering by the magnetic compass. Various compensating devices are used to maintain the stability of the ship’s magnetic compass, but even these are not wholly effective and allowances have to be made accordingly when navigating. Human beings have a certain amount of iron in their systems, more than you might imagine, as well as other minerals, and so it is easy to understand why the earth’s magnetism can affect individuals. Someone residing in an area of high magnetic density will find his or her mental processes reacting differently from those of someone living in a low density magnetic area. Iron intake into the diet has also to be taken into consideration. Every living creature needs contact with the earth currents or erthmegan, otherwise there is a deterioration in health. Studies have established conclusively that people having little contact with natural ground suffer from nervous complaints and generally poor health. Countryfolk are notoriously healthier than townspeople.
You will know that oxygen is essential to life, but in the air we breathe there is another element, a positive element related to electricity, which is essential to the manifestation of life on Earth. That is what is known as ‘The Breath of Life’, a form of energy pervading all creation. This vitalizing element is known to us only in manifestation. In the process of breathing we fill our lungs with this vitalizing energy which contains a large amount of the positive energy required by the blood. Therefore deep breathing and correct exhalation of the devitalized air is most important.
