Experience Earth’s Energies

EXPERIENCE EARTH’S ENERGIES is a study of Transcendence through movement, and a visual examination of the intersection/amalgamation of Energy and Metaphysical Fitness, within the larger context of both the literal and metaphorical “The Outside

“You are what you eat.” – Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, Physiologie du Goût, ou Méditations de Gastronomie Transcendante.

We need healthy energy to survive, we need positive energy to thrive. The cosmos and everything in it is made of energy. Energy is a primal force from which everything emanates and sustains. Reach for the infinite potential and interconnectedness of the universe. Bad energy breeds negativity, drains vitality, creates toxic environments, subjugates joy and perverts happiness. DON’T GET ZAPPED.

We need energy in all FOUR zones.

  • Physical: We need energy for physiological purposes, dancing and Endurance.
  • Spiritual: Energy provides meaning, purpose and transcendence which is all food for our souls.
  • Mental: Energy powers creativity, self-expression and storytelling.
  • Emotional: Positive energy enhances feelings of joy, love, and inspiration, while low energy can contribute to emotional fatigue, apathy, and emotional malaise.

No energy, or bad energy, is Physical, Spiritual, Mental and Emotional death, and yet we spend most of our lives immersed and submerged in technologically modern environments such as towns, cities, the internet, and any and all spaces under the spell-like control of AI and/or the yoke of The Algorithm, e.g. Toxic Energy Sources:

  1. Light pollution, impacting circadian rhythms and causing sleep disorders.
  2. Continuous exposure to high levels of noise, causing deafness and various psychological issues.
  3. Electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation quietly “cooking” us from the inside out causes anxiety, stress and depression.
  4. Nuclear radiation leads to radiation sickness and genetic mutations.
  5. Power Lines buzzing in a menacing and malignant manner.
  6. Microwaves microwaving.
  7. Toxic emissions caused by industrialization and unchecked capitalism enters your body.
  8. Chemical byproducts in our Earth, Wind, Water and Fire.
  9. Airborne pollutants entering orifices and pores degrade function.
  10. Crowdsourced “creativity”, promotes and nurtures widespread or “everyday” mediocrity.
  11. Algorithmically generated impulses drive culture, technology, art and fashion to the exclusion of “sparked” thought originating in actual humans.
  12. Artificial ultrasonic frequencies drowning out Earth’s heartbeat: 7.83Hz.
  13. Malevolent supernatural entities causing fear, anger, anxiety and stress.
  14. Improperly conducted rituals or misguided spiritual practices, making people intolerant, stupid, angry and violent.
  15. Artificially generated ionizing.
  16. Inspiration Stagnation or “Club Zombie.”
  17. Electrosmog.
  18. Imbalanced Geopathic Zones, such as dry riverbeds, no longer flowing with water due to extended droughts caused by climate change, causes depression and disordered thinking.
  19. DNA-altering X-rays and gamma rays.
  20. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are everywhere.
  21. Emotional Negativity at work and in toxic relationships.
  22. High-frequency vibrations killing your vibe.
  23. Psychic attacks and Possession.
  24. Geomagnetic disturbances causing transient physiological and psychological effects.
  25. Spiritual disharmony: the result of feeling “disconnected” caused by social media, FOMO and the ubiquitous presence of the internet.
