As was stated in an earlier blog - 'Information is the Key'. This is a primary statement. Harvard astrophysicist Eric Chaisson has also maintained in his work 'The Life Era' that information is the key principle behind cosmic evolution. Yet information is not simply the bits and bites of electronic language - information embues all that is around us.
Living systems upon this planet take in information by means of solar energy, and secrete in such ways as waste (animal kingdom) or as, for example, oxygen (plant kingdom). Thus, living systems use information as an open system, whereby it is a process of transference in order to decrease entropy and maintain life functions.
Information also exists as waves and physical forces - as radiation especially. Such waves, be they electromagnetic or other frequencies, can be better assimilated if the receiving-capacity of the person (ie. the human brain) is more attuned to finer frequencies. Such attunement has been taught down through the ages as meditative practicies, or through 'action teaching' using both physical exercises as well as mental. It is not for 'religious' purposes, if we must use this vague label, but rather for human attunement to universal, and cosmic, information that is accessible through activation of, generally dormant, brain functioning.
