When Our Biorhythm Is In Harmony


When we tune in to the cosmic theme, when our biorhythm is in harmony with the biorhythm of nature, our being is in a state of dance to the celestial melody of the cosmos. And when this happens, the inner energies and hidden potentials wake and work miracles for us, effortlessly, naturally....

Yoga is an ancient science that preaches the means to tune in to the whole. Yoga means union. A union that encompass many levels of our existence. It brings about union of different splintered aspects of our self and the union of ourselves with the whole. It also brings about union of movement and breathing, union of mind and body, union of thought and action, union of desire and intent....

It's the result of thousands of years of experimentation and observation by omniscient sages, enlightened gurus and ordinary people like you and me. There is vigour, objectivity and revelation in its method. There is harmony, beauty and inspiration in its expression. Yoga is existential, experiential and experimental.

From the very first session of yoga practice we will experience greater relaxation and calmness, increased freedom of movement, improved balance, enhanced concentration and alertness, increased self confidence, determination and contentment. And as we go deeper into the practice, the profoundness of human potential is realized more and more, making available, powers that lie beneath the patterns of restriction that limit and define us.

End of the physical biorhythm cycle


Thank you for your prayers.

My dad has suffered no pain and appears at peace. He is in a coma and is just waiting for his body to pass away.

I expect his heart will stop beating some time on Monday or Tuesday, the crossover of his 23 day physical biorhythm cycle. It seems that many of the people I know died on a biorhythm crossover including my mom, my two uncles and Gary Halbert, a famous copywriter I had the privilege of videotaping his memorial and farewell party.

Take care,

Weak Biorhythms Or Just Heavy Gravity Days


Ever wonder why on some days things go less well than on others?
We've all had them - those days when, unaccountably, we stumble over our own feet, days when our strength deserts us, days when molehills swell into mountains, days when we drop things.

There are many theories purporting to explain such days, but only one which explains them well.

Forget what you've read about biorhythms. Discard the superstitions about gremlins. Trash such nonsense as humidity, barometric pressure, or phases of the moon.

What we're talking about, folks, is gravity. That mysterious tug all objects possess; the affinity of apples for earth made famous by Sir Isaac Newton.

According to Newton's law of gravitation, any two particles of matter in the universe attract each other with a force varying directly as the product of their masses and inversely as the square of the distance between them. The larger the mass, the greater the pull; the further the distance between objects, the less the pull.

It's hard to imagine what life must have been like before Newton came along and enlightened the world to the extent that he did. Folks everywhere must have been wary of apples, expecting them now and then to fly upward or sideways rather than fall down. Once Sir Isaac got things sorted out, people could relax a little, and avoid the undersides of fruit trees.

But mysteries remained. From the time of Newton's major publication in 1687, nearly three more centuries passed before the late novelist Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., published his findings about gravitational force. Newton, said he, had failed to notice one tremendously important point: the gravitational force varies from day to day.

Now, thanks to Vonnegut, we are able to make sense of a whole raft of vexations that puzzled our forebears. Once we understand that the force of gravity is not the same each day, all kinds of things begin to fall into place.

Remember when you last stubbed your toe or bit the edge of your tongue? That, friends, happened on a Heavy Gravity Day. Or when you dropped your cup of coffee in your lap, or failed to toss the crumpled Kleenex all the way to the wastebasket? Another HGD.

Men: do you see now why, on occasion, your belly hangs over your belt? Why the shot you took at that duck last fall was so low? Why you couldn't beat out that infield hit in the softball game?

Ladies: do you understand, finally, why some days it seems your foundation-wear provides insufficient support? Why the cake failed to rise? Why last Tuesday the vacuum cleaner seemed made of cement?

Heavy Gravity Days. Days when the flowers droop and the car gets poor mileage and everything seems so damned difficult.

And, conversely, Light Gravity Days, when there's a spring in your step and a buoyancy in your heart, days when things leap to hand and the grass grows two inches overnight.

Isn't it wonderful, knowing?

Oriental Medicine and Biorhythms


We all know something about biorhythms. Basically, a biorhythm is an internal clock that regulates our bodies in relation to the daily positions of the sun, and the monthly positions of the moon. This can be seen in the time it takes our bodies to adjust to small changes, such as the changes of daylight savings time, or in large changes, such as jet lag. Our understanding of and interest in biorhythms has been recent, within the last thirty or forty years.

The ancient Chinese observed this connection between our bodies and the planets many centuries ago, and use it intheir practice of acupuncture. They list a number of different biorhythms, from the normal twenty four hour cycle up through longer several day periods. All of these are used to follow and influence fluctuations in body energy. In acupuncture, this energy circulates through each part of the body throughout the day, each organ having a two hour time for maximum energy and a time for minimum energy.

For example, the major organs have their maximum energy in the following order: first the liver, then the lungs, large intestine, stomach, spleen, heart, etc., in sequence, for all of the twelve major organs. This order was discovered by years of observing the times of day that the disorders of the various organs displayed their worst symptoms. The acupuncture practitioner can use the times of a patient’s symptoms to help determine which organs and energy channels are affected, and also help select the favorable times to treat the patient. For example, many of the worst asthma attacks take place during the wee hours, which is the maximum energy period of the lungs.

The best time to treat these cases is at a time as close to this time as possible. In the science behind acupuncture, a symptom may be caused by too much energy at an organ, and other symptoms by an insufficient amount of energy. (The determination of which symptoms fall into which category has been catalogued over many centuries, and there are many books on acupuncture detailing these for each of the major organs.) The best time to treat a symptom associated with too much energy is during its maximum energy output, and a symptom with a deficiency in energy is just after the maximum output is over. Of course, it may not be possible to get to your practitioner at those particular times, and there are also other good choices at other times of the day.

In addition to the daily biorhythm, there are also ten day intervals associated with the moon, and so the acupuncture practitioner might strongly suggest that a particular day would be better for treatment than another, based on the particular symptoms reported. Each day of the ten days is associated with one of two aspects of the Qi energy, and also associated with one of five elements. Particular organs are associated with particular elements, and so stimulation of these organs will be more successful on those days associated with the correct element.

It is important for us to take note of the times our symptoms occur as well as what our symptoms are, for that is important information in our acupuncture treatment plan. And know that the time and dates for our treatments are an important part of how well the treatment works.

Everyone seems to be training to be a truck driver


For me at least, my first exposure to the Bell curve was hearing about the placement of the various races of human beings on the curve of IQ. It has become increasingly apparent to me that this type of curve, which, not being a mathematician I would describe as a section of a sine curve, perhaps with some modifiers, can actually be used to illustrate just about anything, particularly when you realise that the factors generating each curve lag another, discrete and separate set of events.

"Wow! Everyone seems to be training to be a truck driver!" is therefore nearing the apex of the bell curve for number of people taking truck driver lessons, and while the initial reaction to this may well be "ooh, it must be a boom area, maybe I should get into it." (you can of course substitute "nurse" or anything else for "truck driver") the considered reaction should be "there is a sign of an impending surplus in the market".

The reasons are fairly simple, the rising demand curve for truck drivers starts to generate a phase delayed rising curve of truck driver students, and as long as the demand curve is a positive number, the lagging phase of the driver training curve is also going to be positive, in an electronic circuit we know this as an amplifier, there is an inherent "gain" built into the system by the lag in phase between demand and supply.

Of course, in a *practical* amplifier circuit we will also have a feedback loop...
Back in the day, when computers were much less complex and my limited by talent and dyslexia programming abilities were sufficient to code a graphical biorhythm plotter, I stumbled upon one of the interesting things about harmonics.

We had a 23 day physical cycle, a 28 day emotional cycle, and a 33 day intellectual cycle. Now it doesn't matter if these cycles are complete crap or right on the money, the interesting point is this, if you start all three cycles on the day of your birth, it will take some (from memory) 30+ odd years before the whole average of all three plot returns to its original position.

Now this is a *hugely* simple and orderly initial data set, yet it is generating a remarkably complex curve, simply by averaging all three, which takes decades to run a full cycle. Substitute "demand for truck drivers" + "relative appeal of truck driving compared to other available work at that time" + "supply of truck driving school places" and we can see that NONE of these have nice fixed cyclic periods, so while we will still get a remarkably complex curve out of them, there is no basis to assume that it will ever reset or return to the point of origin and repeat the cycle, moreover, each of these input variables are themselves the product of other ongoing relationships.

Computationally the problem is ferociously complex, and by far the best and most accurate way to model it is to simply treat the actual object as the model and observe it in real time. We graduate and mature from being Mathematicians, trying to accurately plot and model these ferociously complex cycles, to Philosophers, accepting that the underlying truth is the existence of these cycles... a tree has growth rings, we cannot predict accurately how thick or thin each of the next ten rings will be mathematics, but philosophically we know there will be ten rings, and allow that there might be a Krakatoa event making one of those rings so feebly delineated from its neighbours that there are for all intents and purposes nine rings instead of ten, but there will still be rings.

As a human being approaching half a century on this planet, I understand that the ageing and gathering experience with age process tends to move us along the line from mathematician to philosopher, it takes a lot of data to reach the critical point when you can start to philosophise, and until you get there you're stuck with the mathematical approach of playing the numbers.

As a younger mathematician type I would observe the plethora of truck driving schools buzzing about and think it was a bandwagon that I should maybe consider hitching a ride on, as an older philosopher type I observe the plethora of truck driving schools and consider that lean times are ahead for truck drivers, as supply rapidly overtakes demand.

It's the bell curve thing, you really need to get into whatever it is (computing maybe?) at the bottom of the curve, somewhere near the meadows, and then you need to do what I didn't do with respect to computing, you need to embrace it like the new messiah, mind, body and soul, instead of aimlessly wandering around with your path denoted by interesting and pretty things.... and then you need to get OUT of whatever it is when it seems like it is booming, long before the curve starts to plateau, and look for the next valley.

Only trouble with this is it's like biorhythms, you get maybe 3 cycles in a human lifetime, and it takes maybe 1.5 cycles before you become philosopher enough to realise that there are cycles, and like the surfer positioning yourself on the rising wave uses the wave energy, not yours, to move you.

The Norse peoples used to name themselves by whose loins they issued from, Lars' son, whereas my Anglo Saxon heritage tended to name themselves by what they did to earn a living, Smith, or perhaps where they came from, my youngest, nearly a year old now, carries a surname that reflects his genetic heritage of scores of generations of hard rock miners, he's already showing quite distinct and distinguishing traits of sinewy strength, and his first names are taken from his grandfather and great grandfather, a boy's got to know where he comes from, like the past rings in the tree, it's the only thing you can depend on as a frame of reference.

My dad didn't give me much advice, I now realise, he taught me an incredible amount, but that can be classed as skills, not ideas, as I get older the philosopher in me takes over from the mathematician, and I realise he too was a philosopher, he knew you could only teach the kid how to (figuratively speaking) build a decent surfboard and some basic hydraulics, you can't plan the sea state in advance, and let nature take its course. Leaving your child equipped to deal with whatever the cycles bring was the most you could do.

I'm in the same boat as mentor to kids and young adults, much of the time I say nothing, because there is no point, holding their hands will only teach them to be dependent, and making their own mistakes and hopefully learning is the only way they will get from being mathematicians willing to play the odds on insufficient data to philosophers who haven't already bankrupted themselves while mathematicians...

Society as a whole is just adding millions of extra basic data sets to our biorhythm curves, the added complexity is a problem for the mathematician, the persistence of cyclic events irrespective of the base complexity is the basis for the philosopher.
Will we have another Great Depression?

The mathematician will reach for the spreadsheet and try to analyse the data, furiously industrious, in an attempt to beat all the other mathematicians.
The philosopher will know that sooner or later it is inevitable, and float out there amongst the swells on his home made surfboard, chatting amiably to to other philosophers, enjoying what they can out of life, and waiting for the next big wave.

By way of a post script, one of my first and longest lasting handles / domains, which I only let lapse when I became philosopher enough to realise that DNS is a mathematicians solution, was Surfbaud, this was about 1994, I'd heard the term "surfing" from America, in the BBS days, 9.6k, and it clicked that if you wanted to "surf" you needed "baud", about two weeks later I saw a Motorola advert "How can you surf without your baud" (which google returns zero hits for) and so it kinda stuck.

Biorhythms In Writing


Let's face the truth: biorhythms are about as plausible as horoscopes, tea leaves, and and any other sort of future-telling device. But they're fun, and because they seem to have a pseudo-scientific basis, they seem more real than most others.

There are days when I feel out of it and find I'm on a critical day, as I am today, though I'm not feeling out of it at all. A couple of days ago, I got back into exercising throughout the day, restarting my body's metabolism each time I did that. The positive effect of exercise, unlike biorhythms, is not a theory but a fact, and apparently exercise can kick biorhythm's rear end.

Beginning a couple of days ago, I was not supposed to try to do any intellectual or creative things, like writing stories. As if I needed another reason to procrastinate.

But...I have a short story I need to write for a contest, and this is the time I have to work on it. A couple of ideas didn't pan out like I wanted. But the third time, despite the curse of my biorhythms, I was able to write a pretty good 2000-word story, and I've been tweaking it today. I tend toward liking it.

I think the best thing to do with biorhythms is to let whatever they say guide you into doing something to work against the bad days and with the good days. For me, that means keeping in shape, upping my veggie intake, and doing my best at whatever it is.

Biorhythms and Sports Betting


I wish i'd post this sooner, but i was so busy handicapping the upcoming NCAAF and NFL games, and i rarely post any if at all in the MLB section. Here's a retread of what i've posted in my thread from the NCAAF section:

I'll use tonight's Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox game as a example of how i handicap games. Besides looking at stats, trends and the situations involved, i attempt to predict how the players will perform in the game. First i take a look at their biorhythm charts.

As you can see, both pitcher's charts are in the negative phase, indicating a possible poor performance. Although a slightly better grade for Beckett as he's the pitcher with post-season experience. Next, i take a look at their astrological aspects reading. This part is very esoteric so... if you're already confused, that's okay.

With this information at hand, i deem a Red Sox Moneyline to have tremendous value, even at a 2:1 payout ratio. A C-/D- grade for Jeff Francis is really bad; he's going to get pelted. Thus a Red Sox RunLine wager also offers a lot of value.

Beckett picks up a bad aspect as Venus[conjunct]Saturn, but his biorhythm chart begins to creep up to the positive side. I dropped his rating down a notch from what he got in Game 1 as he's working in hostile territory this time around. He's only 4 years removed from a post-season championship win and his experience will come through once again. I'll be wagering on the Red Sox MoneLine for all of the games.

Take this info however you want. You don't have to believe in biorhythm and astrology or whatever. Maybe its just all coincidence. But it will not be a coincidence as the Boston Red Sox wins another World Series and join their brethren sportsmen known as the Patriots in attempting to build a dynasty.

Biorhythms: Pursuing New Ideas


Dr. Tatai, MD, one of the leading biorhythm safety consultants in Japan, believed hormonal imbalances were the cause of biorhythm instability that resulted in accidents, injuries and mistakes on unstable days. Dr. Borkin also realized through his research that our beloved pets suffer hideously because of hormonal and electrolyte imbalances. Dr. Borkin's lab will soon be adding testing for brain chemistry along with hormone testing for pets and animals.

Their levels of balance are similar to that of humans. It is time our cats, dogs and horses were spared the ravages of cancer, arthritis and other life threatening viral, parasitic and bacterial infections. It is amazing just how healthy a person or pet can be when their hormones and brain biochemistry is balanced by supplementation. Dr. Borkin will soon be offering special testing for professional athletes and top-performing animals, industry leaders and important politicians who want to look and feel their best. By addressing health problems at the hormonal and biochemical levels, the return to health, well-being and optimal performance is possible. A wonderful life is also available for pets, at a minimal investment, when their owners seek to provide hormonal and electrolyte supplementation that will restore hormonal balance and biochemical homeostasis for their pets.

Everyone who has ever loved a dog, cat, or horse knows how tragic and painful it is to lose our best friends needlessly to catastrophic diseases that ruin their quality of life and lead to premature death or euthanasia. Over many years, Dr. Borkin has created a Four Module training program for doctors and health experts.

Biorhythms Program Review


Do you remember or did you ever know about biorhythms? They're a set of cycles that your body goes through, supposedly starting the day you're born. When I first heard of them, there were three main segments: physical, intellecutal, and emotional.

Now there are more, which I'll get onto later. As you can see from my chart for today, all the arrows are pointing down, and rain predominates. The overall assessment is a 53%, which gives reason to the statement often made by members of my family when they say in answer to "how are you," "oh, about half."

Biorhythm practitioners claim to be able to chart good, bad, and critical days for a person. Critical days occur when a rhythm crosses the line between up and down. Those are days to be wary of how you react to stresses in your life. It's easier to see where the lines cross in the chart below, taken from the same day as the graphic above.

Even hairier are days when two rhythms cross at the same time. Looks like my next one of those is coming up in January. And even more rare than that, as you may well imagine, is having three rhythms be critical on the same day. I'm having one of those next February, but one of the three rhythms is the new "intuitive" rhythm. This was not part of the original rhythm selection back in the day. Still, with my emotional and intellectual paths also crossing the line and my physical at its lowest point, I may take a personal day February 21, if only to blog about the day.

WhiteStranger.com provides a nice free version of its Natural Biorhythms tracker. Besides the intuitive track, they've also put on a secondary rhythms chart that assesses wisdom, mastery, and passion, along with an I-Ching chart that provides info on your aesthetic, awareness, and spiritual rhythms. It's fun, something to do when you can't stand to "invest" any more time with fantasy sports or sudoku. :-)

Biorhythms in Architecture: Vaastu shastra


Vaastu shastra, or vastu, as it is more commonly known, is the ancient Indian system of architecture that involves designing a home or a building in a manner that aligns it with nature's five elements – earth, water, air, fire and space. The result is meant to enhance residents' well-being.

Vastu houses observe the principles of vastu – an ancient methodology involving elements of architecture and design that states one can align a house to nature's five elements to create physical, spiritual and mental well-being.

Vastu asks us to align our biorhythms with the universal rhythms in which the sun plays the most vital role. The sun's rays from the northeast in the early morning are a source of rejuvenation. On the other hand, exposure to the southwest, where the midday sun rays ultimately collect.

We honour the positive aspect of the morning sun by placing lightweight, low and delicate furnishings in the north and the east so that the healthy rays of the sun flow freely through each room. Also, vastu houses, especially those that are built from ground up, deploy mathematical calculations believed to maximize the flow of good energy into the house – Hindu temples in India follow vastu strictly.

Biorhythms In Sport: Baseball


It’s been five months since the Mets blew a seven-game lead with seventeen to play, completing a collapse for the ages. Baseball statistician Bill James rated it the third-worst in baseball history. On the last day of the season, the Mets needed a victory over the Florida Marlins, a crummy team with half their spikes already on their La Guardia charter. New York sent 300-game-winner Tom Glavine to the mound. He retired only one batter. The Mets lost, 8-1. After the game, manager Willie Randolph had tears in his eyes.

It was a just conclusion. In retrospect, the 2007 Mets were the antithesis of a championship team; it just took a complete 162-game season to prove it. There were bungled front-office moves, namely Minaya’s firing hitting coach Rick Down and replacing him with Rickey Henderson, who last distinguished himself in a Mets uniform by playing cards in the clubhouse during the 1999 playoffs. By July, Jose Reyes had quit running out ground balls and descended into a second-half pout that even Rickey had to admire. Then slumping first-baseman Carlos Delgado told reporters in September that the team was so talented it sometimes got “bored.” You know the rest.

Baseball is a game of contagious confidence when you’re winning, infectious depression when you’re losing. “You can’t really know why this thing happened,” Randolph told me after a spring-training game. “Why did Colorado win 21 out of 22 games? Were they the best team in the National League? No.” The usually placid manager moved his right arm up and down, mimicking a parabola. “I believe in vibes and biorhythm. These are humans playing a game, not robots. It’s all about rhythm.”

Biorhythms And Personal Energy


A couple of years ago I was asked to be a keynote speaker at a women's conference. While I was on the phone with the organizer, I quickly looked up my biorhythms for the conference date. I had a quadruple high! Yahoo! I gladly accepted the invitation, and guess what? I gave the most inspiring and powerful speech I've ever given.

The biorhythms are continually moving and changing, waxing and waning. The physical cycle is 23 days long. That means your physical energy will go from the bottom, when you feel somewhat listless, to the top where you feel you can move mountains, and back down to the bottom in 23 days. As you guessed, the physical biorhythm influences the energy in your body, your physical strength, and health.

Because your biorhythms fluctuate up and down, every day is different. One day you might have a high mental and low physical; another day you might have a low intuitional but a high emotional. Never a dull moment! You can guess what activities are good to do according to your biorhythms. Some days are better to just stay in bed, while other days you might feel you could move mountains!

When a cycle is at a high point, you feel full of energy in that area of experience, whether it is mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual (also called intuitional). You feel the ebb of that energy when the cycle is at a low point. The cycles go up and down, ebbing and flowing throughout your life, as natural as breathing.

Computed from your birth date, you can track your biorhythms daily on the internet. Being aware of your cycles will help you be more conscious of managing your energy. This leads to taking better care of yourself, going with your own flow, and planning your life to make the most of your natural energies.

There are biorhythm programs you can buy on the internet but you'll be fine with a free program to start. Go to Google and search Free Biorhythms. When a site comes up, type in your birth date, and click on your free biorhythm chart for today. (Bookmark this site as a favorite so you can find it easily every day.)

You, too, can make the most of your life by tracking your natural energy flows on a biorhythm program. You'll have a great day and a healthy life!

Educational biorhythms


Dr. Paul Jacobson, Director of their Center for Teaching Excellence, regularly organizes teaching circles, book discussions, and speakers. I found these tips on their website for "Beating those Bio-rhythm Blues: Keeping the 8:00 and 3:30 Scholars Involved and Learning" by Professor Rachel Serienz.

Be active. Walk around as you speak. Use facial expressions to convey your own reaction to a concept being addressed whether that reaction be acceptance, amusement, or disgust.

Engage in community building. Keep current on who is achieving what...Acknowledge these achievements with a brief mention. Even elicit a brief round of applause. Open your lesson in a way likely to engage student attention.

Acknowledge and honor learning diversity. Realize that your class will contain auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners and make sure that each lesson makes students listen, look, and write or do. Nearly half of college-age students are quite concrete-operational meaning that they learn best when actions and objects are used in teaching, or when teaching is related to their own concrete experiences.

Link lessons. Present a question to which students are expected to bring an answer to the next session. Have students open a session by reiterating what was learned during the previous session and then show them how what is to follow will be an extension of what they have already learned. But still use a novel "Launch" at times. The best way to fight the bio-rhythm blues is through diversity.

Biorhythms and Sudoku. Necessary part of life nowadays.


Turns out that reverting to my backup computer has had some positive repercussions.

As I limp along with my old Gateway, I am having to rediscover certain things that I might have known at one time, but forgot from non-use. How does a computer connects to a wireless network? Why will it connect to one network and not another? Why does trying to get it to connect to a second network cause it to stop connecting to the first network?

Figuring out (and giving up on some of) these questions takes time away from other, more enjoyable procrastination-enablers, like biorhythms and Sudoku. But they are a necessary part of life nowadays. Like changing oil in my cars myself used to be. (I really did that about half a dozen times in my youth!)

Did you know that you can access your Recently Opened Documents in the new version of Windows Start menu? I didn't till I started trying to figure out something else and found that facility still available in some menu box I accessed. Huzzah.

I'm not sure what other tidbits of knowledge I will acquire as I await the return of my default laptop. Whatever I learn and fix up on the backup computer, I will get to review when my regular one comes back.

Maybe I should switch out computers every month or so, just to keep my mind alive. I'll think about that some more, right after I solve this latest Sudoku puzzle.

Biorhythms: Not Feeling Quite Right


Do you ever have that feeling that I am not feeling quite right? Today is one of those days as was yesterday and the night before. I feel a little like the color of this print-muted and dull. I often tell people my bio-rhythms are off. You do know about your bio-rhythms don't you? This is your physical and emotional state. If you physically are a little down and emotionally a little down, then you are at your lowest-bio-rhythm point.

The days you pray for and relish when they come is when both of these hit their high points. These low days affect you and your activities for the entire period of the low. It is a struggle to run and I have to make myself do it, I don't have the high level of energy that I normally enjoy, and I'm kind of in a fog. I am thinking the physical part may have something to do with my sinus. I come from a family of allergy sufferers. Everyone in the family, except me, took allergy shots and suffered with multiple sinus infections every year.

Momma used to tell me that I just sniffed and kept going. I really never thought about it a lot. I am popping the decongestants in an effort to unclog, but I am sure I will bounce back in short order. For today I feel like the character in Charlie Brown that walked around with a cloud just over and around his head. THIS TOO WILL PASS!
