Throughout human history, man has sought ways to improve his life here on earth This ancient desire has found its way in each and every succeeding generation that has contributed to the overall well-being of human development. Today, we live in a world where medical and social conditions have improved drastically from the days of remote antiquity. The common man has access to foods that are grown on the other side of the world. Various forms of communication have made it possible for us to communicate with family and friends living in different nations. Innovations in the field of technology have even made it possible for us to observe the stars and travel into outer space. Man is truly living in a time of convenience. He has a better understanding of some of the scientific processes that occur within in his body and in plants and animals. We have become better enabled to live healthier lives.
In the study of man and his environment, one important discovery that has proven to be beneficial for his development, is the process of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a process used by plants and other autotrophic organisms to convert light energy, normally from the sun, into chemical energy that can be used to fuel the organisms’ activities. The importance of this processed cannot be ignored. During the process of photosynthesis oxygen is produced from the carbon dioxide we exhale. Photosynthesis maintains atmospheric oxygen levels and supplies all the organic compounds and most of the energy necessary for all life on Earth.
Photosynthetic organisms are photoautotrophs, which means that they are able to synthesize food directly from carbon dioxide and water using energy from light. Here we see three basic elements that are needed for this process to occur, though variations occur slightly due to the nature of the species, carbon dioxide, water, and light energy, primarily from the Sun. Chlorophyll makes it possible for plants to absorb energy from light. A Wikipedia article on the subject states:
“Although photosynthesis is performed differently by different species, the process always begins when energy from light is absorbed by proteins called reaction centres that contain green chlorophyll pigments.”
Here we that chlorophyll is an essential part of the process of photosynthesis. While we will talk more about chlorophyll, carbon dioxide, water, and light energy later in our discussion, these are four things need for photosynthesis to occur.
The ability to create from “light energy” is truly a divine process. Observations of this phenomenon have given birth to ideas entertaining the possibility of human photosynthesis. In an online article, hosted by BBC.com, entitled, Will We Ever Photosynthesise Like Plants? The article begins by describing the possibilities of human photosynthesis:
“Humans have to grow, hunt, and gather food, but many living things aren’t so constrained. Plants, algae and many species of bacteria can make their own sustenance through the process of photosynthesis. They harness sunlight to drive the chemical reactions in their bodies that produce sugars. Could humans ever do something similar? Could our bodies ever be altered to feed off the Sun’s energy in the same way as a plant?”
I found the article interesting , but also realize that the process of photosynthesis is much different humans than it is in plants, simply due to the differences in our physical make up. The process of human photosynthesis is used to provide a food known as Hydrogen-24, Hydrogen-12, and Hydrogen-6. It increases a longer than normal lifespan, while one maintains a youthful appearance. There has been a long tradition of human photosynthesis, but known to few people. It is discussed in the symbolism appearing in The Ivory Tablets of the Crow. Here in this text, we read:
“It is when the fire of the mind is imagined over they head that the Zhee is seated at the crown of thy head. And the fire of the mind will descend down to each chamber, even the two of the world under. Now that when the fire of the mind reaches the Shki, where all things pass from the body, then it must rise back to the crown upon thine head.”
In the Art of Ninzuwu is the sacred act of human photosynthesis also known as the Soul of Fire prayer. Different than the process that occurs in plants, human photosynthesis is a process where light energy from the stars is absorbed by the intermediate lobe of the pituitary gland. This stellar energy is then transformed into hydrogen-24 and is responsible for what many call the “miraculous.” Similar to plants, human photosynthesis consists of four things, “light energy,” sound, breathe, and the aura.
Human photosynthesis is an internal process and also voluntary one. The intermediate lobe of the pituitary gland is stimulated by sound, breathe, and an internal drawing in of starry energies, which can be done literally, or by use of visualization. The aura acts in the same manner as chlorophyll does in the process of plant photosynthesis. Symbols that are “engraved” into the human aura during the time of “initiation,” capture light from the stars they represent. Systems like Reiki work in this way and are a form of human photosynthesis too. Over periods of time, the processes of human photosynthesis enable an individual to draw in and protect a subtle energy, which is useful to stars called hydrogen-24. This is further emphasized in the Ivory Tablets of the Crow:
“These operations must be sung in the light of the Goddess of the Sun. The Sun is a keeper of the records of men and sees all that occurs. And these words must be committed to the memory of thy heart, but can be recited before, for Shamuzi is the spirit that gives the Sun its power.”
In both, ancient and modern esoteric schools, the process of photosynthesis among plant life was seen as a form of meditation. It was considered a botanical spiritual practice if you will, which form the basis of theories behind the Tree of Life ideologies. The Body of Myth: Mythology, Shamanic Trance, and the Sacred Geometry of the Body by J. Nigro Sansonese, page 168 states:
“The pituitary gland has been called the “master” gland inasmuch as it controls the overall development of the body by the outputting of a powerful hormone. It is in fact identical to the ajna cakra, “fire wheel,” of tantrism, a center of spiritual energy. On our hypothesis, the ajna cakra-as with all the seven cakras-is not an organ of the so-called etheric body, astral body, or any other “transphysical” kosa (body), but is an apt image for proprioception of the pituitary body, which is certainly physical.”
The process of photosynthesis is an intuitive function in both plants and man. Plants are not fully aware the amount of responsibility they have in such a process, or the role that they play. It is the same in human life. But since this process is an internal one, different from plants, man must initiate the process and can complete his being based on such.
The depth of human photosynthesis is thoroughly examined and discussed for those going through the Art of Ninzuwu’s initiatory structure. We welcome all who seek to participate in such with truth and sincerity. Have a blessed day!
