Fractal acupuncture is based on UNIVERSAL forces – these are the fundamental forces that create the Universe and everything that is in the Universe.
Scientifically we are only beginning to understand the beginning of the Universe, so these principles are based on the knowledge of Chinese Medicine I Ching theory, which has proven to be very reliable. Please visit DBU for a fuller explanation of these fundamentals.
Essentially in the beginning of the Universe there was nothing. How does something come from nothing? The only reasonable explanation is a mathematical explanation +1 -1 = 0. Thus two elemental forces are created from nothing Yin and Yang. These two polar opposite forces act on each other and they create two other forces. If you study the image below you will see my thinking on this – in one instance the two forces are opposing each other, then in the next instance they combine with each and it is this combination which creates the extra two forces. Hence the development of the four fundamental forces of the Universe: Time, Space, Energy and Matter.
Of the four forces Time is the only one that is linear in its expression and this creates the structural basis of the Universe. It creates a tetrahedron structure. Bodily structure is based on itineration after itineration of the tetrahedron structure. The water molecule is a Tetrahedron structure, most ( 70%) of our bodily composition is water. Tetrahedron Structure.
Taking time out of the equation leaves us with three fractals. The structure of the body is closely associated with the Fibonacci number – it creates spirals.
Fibronacci number and the spiral structure
The fractal of three creates EVERYTHING in the universe. Thus it makes sense to diagnose ill health based on the fundamentals that create the universe. As it works out the four forces of the universe impact and create illness in four meridians of the body at any one time. Thus in illness the four channels form a fractal:
1 Deficient channel and 3 Excess channels
2 Deficient channels and 2 Excess channels
3 Deficient channels and 1 Excess channel
In treatment we use fractals again, first we look at in neurological anatomy and it can be seen each nerve cell in the brain has three synapses a perfect fractal:
1. Input / Sensory (Yin) synapse
2. Inhibitory (Inh) synapse
3. Output / Motor (Yang) synapse
Treatment involves stimulating the appropriate synapses in the neurological system to create balance dependent on how many channels are deficient.
Fractal acupuncture is about finding simplicity in ALL the complexity. Note how this simplicity creates first the embryo and then the complex body:
Note the structure of the spiralled snail shell.
Note the direction of the spirals.
Note the reflection on the table, the shell and its reflection takes the shape of a basic embryo. The reflection is just another itineration of the fractals. It is quite simple.
How Fractals create the body – compare a shell / its reflection and the embryo = Same structure
Note the same spiral itineration of my finger, the metacarpal, forearm etc. The same forces are at play in complex mammalian body as well as the snail shell. Notice that limbs start as buds just like the snail shell and then finally grow in to complex structures.
