Coming into direct contact with the higher frequencies of vibration of the energy field is dangerous if one does not have a purified and a strong nervous system, otherwise the direct contact with the higher energy will breakdown the nervous system of the person leading to diseases, insanity, paralysis or death. Worse, if the higher energy descends into the nervous system, as it has done in my case, then the difficulties are manifold as the nerves are constantly being sensitized to the new input and besides the subconscious is stirred up and brought to the surface for weeding out the undesirable imprints of personality and other adverse impressions. It is a most exacting process. On the other hand, scripture reading, head bowing, following dietary rules, abstaining from work once a week, lighting candles, going on pilgrimage, wearing a certain religious garb or singing songs are child's play and have nothing whatsoever to do with the cosmic reality or yogic experience.

"Global Cooling" is fast spreading and even here in coastal Mumbai where the weather is always hot and muggy it's pretty chill these days.

Usually what happens when a thermodynamic system enters a phase of high instability is that it either collapses or emerges into a higher state of stability.

The key to understanding dissipative structures is to realize that they maintain themselves in a stable state far from equilibrium.

or me with mushrooms!
Truth be told, I find the smell of bacon repulsive. Mainly out of traumatic experience. I had a housemate in grad school, ironically a cancer researcher in the med school, who sizzled the stuff up EVERY friggin morning for the year I lived with him. Every morning I would wake up to the sizzle and smell.
The other day I had a tamale at a holiday (Xmas) party and AFTER I ate it, I found out there were two types of tamales on the platter, chicken and pork. I asked no questions, and life moved on.
They should have put those little signs on the platter! "Pork" "Chicken"

Did you enjoy it? That is, before you found out what it might have been?

But too much of anything can be too much.

There was an old Simpsons episode where Homer was sent to hell, strapped down, and rapidly force-fed donuts (his favorite) by a machine. Home was the exception and of course enjoyed every donut!

PERFECT EQUILIBRIUM IS DEATH

A living organism is characterized by continual flow and change in its metabolism that involves thousands of chemical reactions many of them going on simultaneously. Chemical and thermal equilibrium exists when all these processes cease. In other words, an organism in equilibrium is a dead organism. Living organisms continually maintain themselves in a state far from equilibrium which is the state of sentience or of life. Although very different from equilibrium, this state of life is nevertheless stable over long periods of time with the same overall structure being maintained in spite of the perpetual flow and exchange of components.

CHEMO-THERMAL EQUILIBRIUM & STILLNESS OF CONSCIOUSNESS

Near chemo-thermo equilibrium we may expect to discover repetitive phenomena and universal laws with the innate consciousness, too, entering into a state of "stillness". As we move away from equilibrium, we move from the universal towards the richness of diversity that derive from the universal laws. In this poise of manifested multiplicity, consciousness recovers its dynamic movements associated with sentience.

In classical thermodynamics, irreversibility, although an important feature, is always associated with energy losses and waste. However, in a dissipative structure like a living entity which operates in a "state of life" that's far from equilibrium, irreversible processes play a constructive and an indispensable role. This phenomenon has been demonstrated by the noted chemist, Ilya Prigogine, in his radical researches on dissipative structures.

NEWTONIAN WORLDVIEW VERSUS THE DISSIPATIVE STRUCTURE WORLDVIEW:

Chemical reactions, the basic processes of life, are the prototype of irreversible reactions. In a Newtonian world, there would be no chemistry and no life. However, within the ambit of the new theory of dissipative structures, chemical processes like the catalytic loops that're essential to living organisms lead to instabilities through repeated self-amplifying feedback on account of which new structures of ever-increasing complexity emerge at successive bifurcation points. In a nutshell, irreversibility is the innate mechanism that brings order out of chaos.

The yogic experiences favor the dissipative view in ordinary sentient organisms and at the same time emphasize the equilibrium state of perfect non-change in energy field accompanied by perfect stillness of consciousness - the highest stasis!

I would have loved to introduce the complex chemical equations and detailed mathematical calculations to buttress my points on equilibrium state and dissipative structures from a therm-chemical perspective but this thread does not support higher mathematical workings.
