Rhizome and Resonance

 

Qualia, String, Life is all Resonant Rhizome

Until now, Rhizome was understood in its special form as de-centralized multiplicity and so on, but we need to grasp it as the movement that is able to connect freely at any place, at any time, and separate flexibly.

And now, we have to add what is the Resonance that generates the multiple movements of Rhizome.

All of the movements and forms are generated by Resonance.

 

1. Qualia

 

The creativity of Life is based on Qualia Resonance. When Qualia encounter other Qualia, they automatically generate new Qualia through resonance. We named it as the “Resonant Emergence” of new Qualia. It is the secret of the infinite creativity of Life.

 

2. String

 

Everything is made by the difference in resonance pattern of the String

According to the String theory of modern physics, everything in the Universe is generated by the difference of the resonance pattern of the String. The String is extremely tiny. It’s planck length is the shortest length in the universe;

0.1(-33) m=0.000000000000000000000000000000000m.

071112_string_size.jpg

 

Energy and Mass

 

In the Universe there are four kinds of forces (interactions); Gravity, Magnetic-electric force, Strong force, Weak force.

Einstein found that Energy and Mass is the same thing. They are able to convert mutually. According to the principle of relativity, the famous formula; E=mc2 shows that energy equals mass.

All mass and energy are made by the difference of the resonance pattern of the String.  

 

Eleven dimensions

The String is resonating in 11 dimensions space. Six dimensions are curled up into the Planck length, and there are three big dimensions that are well known by our daily sense.

IMAGE5.JPG

Fig 1.  6 dimension of Calabi Yau space

maxresdefault.jpg

Fig 2. The String is resonating everywhere in the space

 

The String is unable to count

The String has no number, because they always become one and separate into two flexibly, nobody can count it.

SPACE1.JPG

Fig 3.  The String can change their numbers by connecting and separating flexibly.

 

Infinite Resonance pattern

The resonance patterns of String is infinite, they can change the sizes, shapes infinitely.

string_001600.jpg 

7588655_f520.jpg

Fig 4, 5. The resonance pattern of the String is infinite.

 

Qualia’s resonance pattern is infinite, too.

I guess that infinity might be connected by Qualia and String. Because, there is only one infinity in the Universe.

And it must be Life that connects the two.

 

3. Life

 

Life was born four billion years ago on the planet. According to the String theory, Life is born by the unique resonance pattern of the String.

The new born Life has a special resonance pattern completely different from the previous other materials. It is the Qualia as the Life Resonance.

Life can recognize the change of its own cell’s condition through resonance with the environment as Qualia, and has a special ability to remember it as the cellular memory.

The ability above is called ‘Outer Qualia”, and below is called “Inner Qualia”.

Life has both, the ability of outer Qualia and inner Qualia as Life Resonance.

This is the completely novel force that only Life has in the Universe. Qualia as the Life Resonance is the fifth force in the Universe.

 

4. Rhizome

 

As we have seen above, the form and movement of Qualia and the String is Rhizome.

Connect and separate freely with resonance anytime and anywhere, then generate new resonance patterns of new Qualia and String.

In the Rhizome, the resonant emergence is most likely to occur. That is why the String has generated this Universe and Life has infinite creativity.

Everything in this Universe is created by the difference in the resonance pattern of the string. It is known that the world of matter and energy changes with the four forces discovered so far, four interactions (gravity, electromagnetic force, strong force, weak force).

However, in order to understand life it is necessary to extract the logic of the fifth interaction, <qualia as life resonance>. Qualia cannot be grasped by four interactions. It is the fifth interaction born in space with the birth of life.

Modern intelligence has been imprisoned by humanistic subject illusion. And with it’s humanoid fantasy of capitalism coupled with the illusion of positioning Christian humans at the apex of the universe, those with capital have continued to destroy the global environment as desired.

However, now it is time to crush the human subject illusion and to have to change the world by the principle of <life resonance>.

<Life Resonance> is fundamentally different from the subject-predicate relation like the established logic so far.

Resonance has neither a subject nor an object. It happens naturally from both sides. This is the Resonance.

To date we have become accustomed to interpreting human beings as the subject of every phenomenon.

So, we are used to understand in this manner: "I see the flower." without wonder. However, when we see this process from the viewpoint of the Resonance theory, it is only a delusion captured by a human-like subject illusion. Light resonance is occurring between the flower and your eyes before you see it. It is Life Resonance between the flower and you. As a result of the resonance between you and the flower that mediated the light, the flower image stimulates your visual nerve cells, and in your brain, the illusion that "I am watching the flowers" is established.

We need to grasp every phenomenon related to Life once again as <Qualia Resonance>. This is what is actually happening as it is without any bias of the illusion of humans as subjects.

Lost in the desert


I introduce a fateful dream of a schizo girl’s dream to my life.
When I have read this dream in the “Thousand Plateaus” of Deleuze, at the same time my intimate friend Santiago Sempere guided us into this dream in his workshop. I was 45 or 46 years old, just I have been reborn as a Butoh dancer. And surprised at the synchronicity with me and Santiago.
I felt in this dream it is hidden a secret of relationship between subbody and cobody, or an individual and group.

"There is a desert. Again, it wouldn't make any sense to say that I am in the desert. It's a panoramic vision of the desert, and it's not a tragic or uninhabited desert. It's only a desert because of its ocher color and its blazing, shadowless sun. There is a teeming crowd in it, a swarm of bees, a rumble of soccer players, oragroup of Tuareg. lam on the edge of the crowd, at the periphery; but I belong to it, I am attached to it by one of my extremities, a hand or foot. I know that the periphery is the only place I can be, that I would die if I let myself be drawn into the center of the fray, but just as certainly if I let go of the crowd. This is not an easy position to stay in, it is even very difficult to hold, for these beings are in constant motion and their movements are unpredictable and follow no rhythm. They swirl, go north, then suddenly east; none of the individuals in the crowd remains in the same place in relation to the others. So I too am in perpetual motion; all this demands a high level of tension, but it gives me a feeling of violent, almost vertiginous, happiness."

A very good schizo dream. To be fully a part of the crowd and at the same time completely outside it, removed from it: to be on the edge, to take a walk like Virginia Woolf (never again will I say, "I am this or I am that. ").


During these 20 years, I have investigated in this secret and invented ways of becoming Rhizome and co-creating without hierarchical direction or choreography as the
<Resonant Rhizome> to share this mystery.
Now it is the time to deepen it.

But, how?

Everybody!
Research the moment that the boundary between individual and group or kind become not clear, ambiguous in your dream or experience.
The secret is hidden in that kind of dream or experience.
I have experienced it during the anti-Vietnam War and revolutionary movement in 1960’-70’. Especially in the struggle against police or other sects, I felt the deep numinous question;
“Who am I?”, “What is Life?”
Many Buddhist monks killed himself by burning. They seemed to have another view about Life. Through these experiences, the quest become fateful to me. “What is Life?”

Three mysteries about what Life is

Now I can grasp the Life through the entanglement of the following three mysteries.
1. Our human body has a hundred trillion cells. Each cell has Life as the same as we have an individual Life. We are resonant Life of hundred trillion cell's Life.
2. Our individual lifespan is within 100 years, however, each cell's age is four billion years old.
3. Life might be a huge tide that four billion years survives with changing shapes, increasing species. Life is one, in this view. The individual Life is separated from the huge Life tide only for less than a hundred years and will return to the huge Life tide when individual Life die.

This thought is not certain. Nobody solves these mysteries. That's why we need to research the mystery in various experiences through being Rhizome.

Dear Lee,

I am so excited to take workshop in Gokarna!

Right near my guest house there is a yoga school. If it's very simple and beautiful in the nature. Just with patted down earth and walls made of dried leaves, two minutes from the beach! The yoga teacher was very kind and said I can use the space for butoh workshop.

So today I made the poster and pasted them all over the area.

I hope I get some students!

In the middle of making the poster I was reading 'Behind the mirror' and felt I understand it much better now. I think through this workshop, by guiding others, I will learn even more.

Thank you so much for all you have done and all your research.

I remain forever indebted to you.

Best

Congratulation!

Zarina moved southwards India from the winter intensive course
and opens her first Butoh workshop at the Gorkana coast.
You did it!
I have dreamt that in the next winter, several students are scattered
all over India, and India tour developing to multiple India tours
that will hold workshops and Butoh performances.
It has already begun to show that aspect from this year.
Yes! Everyone! Let's continue to Zarina!
Such experiences will nurture you.

Midwife Principles

 

1. Keep Transparent condition

    Listen to inside half, outside half

    Not bound by anything

2. Share your best

3. Affirm everything. Accept others as a being on the way

   Not stuck to critique and denial
  
  When Kan (disabled) subbody=cobody is born, raising carefully


When a mixed body between subbody and daily body is born, accept it as it is telling that your conditioning is not enough.
Midwife never brame subbody cobody, take all responsibility as your problem.

4. De-self 

    Sati (Be aware of ego arise)

    Not connect thinking to the first sentence

5. Half co-creating cobody, half carrying your secret

6. Use Awase-Hanare (Same resonance pattern, different resonance pattern) technique flexibly.

7. Invent deeper conditioning to solve out.

 Banyan Rhizome in Pune (2015)
 7 January, 2019


Conditioning No. 7 Rhizoming

"Conditioning No.7 Rhizoming" was changed so many times during these 20 years. But, finally we can meet the proper difnition as the following;

Rhizoming means becoming Rhizome that dismantling the inner Tree system of the daily mind and body. In the daily body, the mind is the King and it controls the body. We destroy this inner hierarchy.
Any part of the body is moved by someone, released from the daily role, and deterritorializing. Your arm can connect someone's pelvis, and someone's head connects to your back, and separate flexibly. Each part of the body becomes a nomad and starts traveling beyond the borders freely.
When our bodies become Rhizome like above, the resonant emergence will occur maximum often, and we can open the infinite creativity of Life.

The first year of the Rhizome Revolution


Become a lone wolf!
Wolf is a rhizome even being a lone, it has the potentiality to become herd at any time.
Do what you believe the best without talking and meeting by alone.
Bring what you did to the meeting.
We do not discuss in the meeting. The important principle is not to express yourself too much, not to express others too much.
Everybody become Transparent Rhizome, open Transparent distant eyes.
In the meeting, you can just find the best resonance pattern among each other.

Become Transparent Rhizome

Past 20 years were the moratorium that we could cultivate the Rhizome in the Subbody school apart from the society.
It was pure abstract experiments period.
Now we are going to have various contact with the society to spread the Life Resonance toward the world. It’s a historical experiment in the human history that the Rhizome contacts to the Tree system.

Erase the boundary among you

Why I write this? Because I'm afraid that you are still bound by the nationality. A boundary separates you between Europian and Indian.
We need to take off all kinds of human condition; especially identity, sexuality, and nationality.
During you are bound by them, nothing happens.
Take of them radically.
All of them are imprinted in the depth of the darkness of the body. They are Archetypes. Especially, the ego is the strongest Archetype that all modern human beings are trapped.
That is the reason we need to de-self at each millisecond.
We call "Sati" to notice subtle signal of ego arise.
Ego has archetypical tendencies that affirm oneself and deny others.
When you notice it, immediately let it calm down.
It is the de-self practice that we never forget at each millisecond.
It is so hard, but worth to do it.

Let's spread the world. it is so fresh and so diverse!
It is the field that the Life Resonance will be spread.
I can send you a word for it.

Be a lone wolf!
Carry your secret!
Become Transparent Rhizome!

Behind world share

Life resonates with countless invisible ”Behind Worlds”.
We will stop our daily thinking by medimotion conditioning and become subbody = co-bodied mode which our body can meet freely countless forgotten Qualia of the darkness of the body. We share and co-create each Behind world.
It has become an interesting journey to follow various aspects of Life. In the summer and winter intensive course, we are making new experiments.
We do not yet know what kind of Butoh is born through this quest. But, sometimes we can see the future in these experiments.

A Dehumanized Body

A Dehumanized Body: India 2018 | Kolkata
Review from The Statesman

"Artist Priyadarshini Ohol, for the first time, unveiled a large scale, socio-political work of Artivism about the current mass scale persecution of Dalits. It was showcased recently at the North Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts, Kolkata. This unique work of art introduced by Ohol, with a live interactive performance of Butoh, a form of Japanese dance theatre, as the highlight of the evening, drew a sizeable crowd of curious onlookers and art aficionados. The work titled “Dehumanised Body: India 2018” includes a weeklong performance with audience participation.

The Butoh performance was complimented by large screen video installations of the brutalities of casteism in various parts of India. As viewers walk through the space, they can hear racist cries like “Hindu! Hindu! Hindu!”, “Sickular!”, “Anti national!”, “Reserved category!” or “Kill them all, they deserve to die!” which enhanced the dystopian graveness of the situation. The video clippings have been gathered from social media."

"She has combined multichannel video, audio, text and visual art into a single site-specific installation. Along with a live Butoh performance where she allows audience to interact with her dehumanized body, this exhibit has left a deep impact on viewers garnering much praise for the artist."

  The death of God and the Disappearance of Man
Michel Foucault (1966)
 1 January, 2019


The death of God and
the Disappearance of Man


Michel Foucault (1966)



Happy New Year.
Today I would like to introduce the most important philosophical discoveries in the 20th century.
The most important philosophical event in the 19th century was "God has died" by Nietzsche.
And in the 20 century, Foucault predicted "Disappearance of Man".
It happened in France in 1966.
And, surprisingly, in Japan at the same time beyond the sea, Tatsumi Hijikata was created Butoh that abandons all human conditions.
It was surprising synchronicity!
We knew the fact that Life is connected to one in the Abyss, through it.
Only my generation has experienced the amazing synchronicity of Life in 1968 world revolt by world youth.
However, someday again the day when the world Life will resonate to Rhizome will come.
Tree-like hierarchical order confines the creativity of Life.
Someday the Life in the world will notice it.
I believe it.

[Foucalt's speech in the video]


"I believe that the human has been If not a bad dream, a specter, at least a very particular figure, very historically determined and situated in our culture. It’s an invention.
In the 19th century and also the first of the 20th century, it is believed that the human was the fundamental reality of our interests.
One had the impression that the search for the truth about man had animated all research, perhaps of science, and for sure of philosophy.
When we look at things more closely, we have to ask if this idea of the human has basically always existed, and always there waiting to be taken up by science, by philosophy.
We have to wonder if this idea isn’t an illusion, an illusion of the 19th century. Until the end of the 18th century, until the French Revolution, we never dealt with the human as such. It’s curious that the notion of humanism that we attribute to the beginning, the notion is very recent.
You can’t find the term ‘humanism’ earlier because humanism is an invention of the late 19th century.
Before the 19th century, it can be said the human didn’t exist.
What existed were a number of problems, a certain number of forms of knowledge and thought, where it was a question of nature, or a question of truth, or a question of movement, a question of order, or a question of the imagination, or a question of representation, etc.
But it wasn’t actually a question of the human.
The human is a figure constituted near the end of the 18th century and beginning of the 19th century which gave rise to what has been and still are called the human sciences.
This new notion of the human invented at the end of the 18th century also gave rise to humanism, the humanism of Marxism, of Existentialism, which are the most obvious expressions at present.
But, I believe that, paradoxically, the development of the human science is now leading to a disappearance of the human rather than an apotheosis of the human. Indeed, this is happening now with the human sciences. The human sciences did not discover the concrete essence of the individual, of kinds of human existence.
On the contrary, when you study, for example, the behavioral structures of family, as Levi Strauss did, or when you study the great European myths, as Dumezil did, or when you study the very history of our knowledge, you discover, not the positive truth in man. What one discovers is great of thought of large formal organizations which are like the ground in which individualities historically appear. Which means that current thought has completely reversed from a few years ago.
I think we are currently experiencing a great break with the 19th and early 20th century.
This break is at the bottom of our experience of not a rejection, but a distance from Sartre. I think that Sartre is a very great philosopher. But Sartre is still a man of the 19th century.
Why? Because Sartere’s whole enterprise is to make man in some way adequate for his own meaning. Satre’s whole enterprise consists in wanting to find what is absolutely authentic in human existence. He wants to bring a back to himself, the possessor of meaning which could escape him. Sartre’s thought is situated in the philosophy of alienation.
We wish to do just the opposite, to show, on the contrary, that what is individual, what is singular, what is properly lived as human is but a kind of glittering surface on top of large formal systems, and our thought must now rebuild those formal systems on which floats every so often the foam and image of man’s own existence.

-Let me ask a question. How can any political outlook atem from your work?
Of course, this is probably the question that is posed to all forms of reflection that are destroying a myth and which have not yet rebuild a new mythology.
For example, for a long time, philosophy ha a kinship with hology.
The role of philosophy was to define morality or what politics, we can and should deduce from the existence of God.
When philosophy and the culture discovered that “God is dead”,
It was immediately proclaimed that everything is permitted. If God is dead, morality isn’t possible. If God is dead, what policy could we adopt?
Experience has shown that moral and political reflection never had been more alive and abundant that it had from the moment of God’s death. And now that man is disappearing, the same question is asked that had been formally raised of God’s death.
If man is dead, all is possible, or more precisely, we’ll be told that all is necessary.
What is discovered in the death of God, what was discovered in the great absence of a supreme being, was a space for freedom.
What is now discovered in disappearance of man is a thin space left by man which must arise in the frame of a kind of necessity, the large network of system to which we belong and is to be necessary. Well, it’s likely that just as there’s a space for freedom left the death of God, for great political and moral systems, like that of Marxism, of Nietzsche, or of Exitentialism can be built.
We may see above this grid of necessities which we are trying to navigate, great political options, great moral options and we have to say that even if we don’t see it, since, after all, no one can prejudge the future.
It doesn’t matter if we don’t. It is being discovered in recent years that literature is no longer made just to entertain, no music just to provide visceral sensations. Well, I wonder if we won’t discover that thought an be used for something other than to prescribe to men what they have to do.
It would be all well and good if thought could think of itself entirely, if thought could uncover what unconscious in the very depths of what we think."

We will start from here to the future.
What will happen after the disappearance of man?

Dancing through the Himalayas


Subbody resonance butoh is an art center dedicated to research the ignored content of the psyche through various methods and transform these materials into creation. Our intention through this research is to open the infinit resonance ability through movement and become a transparent life which can spontaneously connect, play, dive into the depths of the universe and simply just resonate with anything through movement.

For Europe, Adam’s activity sounds very good!
I confirmed to go to
Greece and Hungary handicapped workshop and probably workshop with judit also.
For this two workshops, I would like to continue. I applied some fund to make travel cost for this two workshop.

Adam can contact any other organizer in Europe, Spain, Italy, Holland etc. Or with Adam, we can organize bigger subbody gathering and workshop in Europe together. It can be kind of festival or camp and more organized performance.

I think Pit will join at
Switzerland. We can suggest to Italy with camp. Or in Spain with festival.

Next week I will be able to have own time and can communicate more idea.
Give me any idea back for this.
Then i will write you more detail.

Hope to see you soon.

Sinking into darkness of the body

Jumping wild Rhizome

Furthermore, in order to promote free resonance emergence of qualia, it's good to lead the jumping wild Rhizome.
Originally, Rhizome is free to link and separate whenever and wherever it is,
If it proceeds to cross beyond spacetime, beyond self and other, beyond all boundaries, the Qualia make the most unexpected encounters.
More and more resonance emergencies occur and new Qualia will be born one after another.
The most creative state which is called superconducting state is born.

How to realize this as the movement of subbody = cobody.

It depends on the idea of a midwife.
Every day, listen to the change of the darkness of the body of the participant,
and explore what alienates the free jump.
Ego, thinking habit, self-identity, repeated self-stories, criticisms, denial to others, and so on.
Those tendencies are the remaining of the daily body, that subbody = cobody still wear.

The midwife has to lead to take off them somehow. However, when the ego is attacked directly, it shows intense resistance. This is an instinctive resistance.
It is better not to work directly to take off that debris but to suggest more interesting things.
The ego also starts to challenge by breaking the shell if it seems somehow looks interesting, although it is somewhat different from the ego's usual way.
That is <Jumping wild Rhizome>.
The each part of the body is deterritorialized and becomes nomads. Nomad Rhizome body is able to connect to any part of the body of another person and separate it flexible. Sometimes, several different Qualia come together in one body and become a Chimera body.
It transforms indefinitely, resonates with the invisible world, and the emergence of new Qualia happens.
Whether participants will create an environment or atmosphere that will make them enjoyable from the bottom is decided.
It's better to start like play.

"We were born to play.
We were born to be playful.
If the voice of the child playing, also my body move with resonance. "

(Ryoujinhisho -old Japanese song)

<Rhizoming conditioning and researching>

1. Qualia Travel
Let various Qualia pass through your body in various directions; from the bottom to the top, from the top to the bottom; vibrations, sways, waves, shocks, collapses, death Qualia pass through.

2. Qualia catch ball
When various Qualia pass through every direction, et Qualia travel from a person to others and passes through the body of others. In the process, the Qualia transform freely and jumps to the body of another person. Enjoy it.

3. Deterritorialization
Sometimes a part of the body release from the territory of ego, and becomes nomad that travel beyond the border among people. My arm connects with your back, your head starts living at my hip, etc. Infinite deterritorialization and reterritorialization occur when the body connects to a part of the body of another person somewhere in the body of another person.

4. Jumping wild
Pass all Qualia on its own so that it goes through the body. Sometimes it separates from other people's body.

5. The behind world
Sometimes, unexpected accidents occur by resonating with the invisible behind world of each own.

6. Jumping wild Resonant Rhizome
It is fun playing by integrating all of the above.

Sinking into darkness of the body

Let's get out of the Tree and become Rhizome!

Let's get out of the Tree and become the Rhizome!

For many years, the Rhizome could not be successfully positioned in the subbody method.

 

Finally, after many years of midwifing, the question of how to open the creative potential of people by diving into the darkness of the body has become transparent.

 

The creativity of Life is based on the natural phenomena that when two Qualia interact there is a spontaneous resonant emergence of a new Qualia.


We named it "Resonance emergence". This discovery let me notice the irreplaceable importance of Rhizome.

The Rhizome that is able to connect freely and separate flexibly is the best environment in which to open the infinite creativity of Life.

So, with confidence, we can say now, "You can leave the Tree and become Rhizome!"

I was subconsciously aware of this a long time ago. Yet, it took only twenty years before the relationship between creativity and the Rhizome could be theorised.

Why is the Rhizome full of creativity?

Although it was a mystery for many years, the reason has appeared transparently at last.

The Rhizome is full of creativity because of the frequent occurrence of extraordinary encounters between Qualia and Qualia in a freely separable, and any time connectable environment. Also, Qualia's resonance emergence creates more and more new Qualia if you just disregard the tree-like order. This is the simple answer.


I was subconsciously aware of it long ago. All activities of mine were directed to cultivate the Rhizome in the world in any manner possible. It took only twenty years before it could be  theorized.

Rhizome is the foundation of Life's creativity where Qualia and Qualia are able to interact freely beyond boundaries.


In daily life, we are bound by the Tree-like hierarchical order and Qualia cannot interact freely because many boundaries inhibit it. Nation-state, religion, company, family, ego, self-identity and so on disturb free interaction. That is why daily bodies are alienated from the creativity of Life.

Ensure that everyone in the world can escape from any tree system.

The Rhizome will creep into every layer of the tree system, eat it and break it. When tree-like connections are split unexpectedly by the invading Rhizome, beyond every boundary and hierarchy, it will cause the Tree to crush from inside.

Life Resonance Qualia will be unleashed in non-dual,  multidimensional channels.

It will start from the site of creation, and eventually, rhizome formation will progress to every aspect of social relations.


Let's create a world in which everyone can become a creator. A world where everyone's everyday life will be limitlessly creative.


How interesting will such a world be?
The purpose of Life Resonance Art is to remove all obstacles and facilitate the blossoming of mankind’s creativity.

Defeat Tree-like hierarchical order around the world, let's transform it into Rhizome.

Of course, those profiting from the current tree based hierarchical order will resist intensely. They already have political and economic power and control the information management system.

Tyrannical world powers have merged and multiplied at an unprecedented scalein human history. But there is nothing to worry about. No system can prohibit Life Resonance. Life resonates with Life, and one day, suddenly the wave of Life Resonance of the world will destroy the towering world powers.

As slavery will perish and the feudal system is lost, current politics, economics and information power will disappear as well.

Just imagine it now. Eventually the day will come that this will become a reality.

"Oh, the country of the future, that's all"

Formerly, the revolutionary Japanese poet, Gan Tanigawa muttered so. Now I, a Himalayan daydreamer, am imagining about the future without a nation and murmuring.

"Oh, the future Rhizome. That's all it is"

In the Relay of Life, Gan Tanigawa’s spirit of change for a country has become the transformation into a Rhizome.

Gradually, the process of how the nation should transform into a Rhizome is becoming clearer. We may have to wait for several generations to realize this dream.

The next generation of runners have already spread all over the world from the Himalayas. They will pass on the baton to others.

While dreaming about it, I can laugh and return to the four billion years old tide of Life.

Sinking into darkness of the body
 
 Qualia meet Qualia and new Qualia is born
  22 December 2018

What is creativity?

Our quest has finally come to the critical point.
What is creativity?
The day has come to respond to this question.
The root of creativity is the resonance emergence of Qualia.
Qualia has infinite resonativity.
When Qualia encounter another Qualia, it attracts each other like a magnet, merged into one and new Qualia is born.
This is the secret at the root of the creativity of Life.
No one has yet explored this secret in human history. There was no one solving the secret that what creativity is.
Qualia is Life Resonance itself, but its secret has not been elucidated yet.
Today, only we are about to approach the mystery of the trinity of Life - Resonance - Qualia.

The creativity of Life is based on resonance emergence of Qualia.

And only those who noticed the mechanism implicitly gained the ability to open up their hidden creativity. However, there is no example that the secret was told to people.
Certainly, people who focus on creativity secreted by subconscious have appeared recently, and the method leading into the subconscious mode by self-hypnotic techniques has advanced.

The foundation of those phenomena is <Resonance Emergence of Qualia>.

Qualia are resonating each other always.
Qualia meet other Qualia automatically and create a new Qualia through resonance.
However, the daily body is not in an environment where free encounters of Qualia and Qualia can be encountered, as it is prisoned by floods of information and Tree-like judgment from day-to-day activities and social life.

Open the closed daily body

The Subbody method is what brings our Life out of the closed state of the daily body and brings it to the subconscious mode which Qualia and Qualia can meet freely in the non-dual and multidimensional resonance realm.

Medimotion conditioning

The backbone of the subbody method is in the medimotion.
Medimotion is the meditation while moving.
Leave your body to be moved slowly by someone, and at the same time shift to a transparent body that listens to inside 50% and to the outside 50%.
Traditional classical meditation has closed the body and movement channel, meditated concentrating only on the thinking channel, but when closing the body and movement channel which connects to the root of Life, it's not able to become the non-dual and multidimensional resonance state of Life.
Classical meditations that have a long history of thousands of years have fallen into a trap alienating the creativity of Life.
Now it is the time to break the limitation.
The subbody method breaks it and opens up our daily life to infinite creativity of Life.
First of all, this technique was discovered 20 years ago in the butoh dance field that opens the body movement channel mainly and has been developed and deepened.

Life Resonance Art

Today, however, this method is developing to open the possibility that everyone can participate in not only Butoh dance but also all genres Arts related to visual art, music, installations about human relationship, world-image = self-image channels and so on.
We named it <The Life Resonance Art>.
Let's join in it, and let you reborn as a unique artist who opens the creativity, originality, and resonativity of Life.

Europe Life Resonance Butoh
tour (with Gio)


For Europe tour,

We fixed the date in Hungary only with Tamas. (First week of july)

Greece is delayed to Autumn.

So now I'm contacting for new organizing to cover flight cost to Europe at least.

Also I want to make deep collaboration in Hungary staying enough days.

So I'm looking for fund in Korea to make travel cost.



I began to contact with Chiara to make butoh residency camp for summer.

And checking more possibilities in Europe. I will update soon. If you have recommendation for me. would be nice.

I saw Adam's schedule. It's great, very active.

For me, at first I thought only 2~3 places. Hungary, Greece and probably Iceland.

To make a bit long creation process at each place.

But now Instead of Greece, I began to find another place.

Rhizome and Resonance

 

Qualia, String, Life is all Resonant Rhizome

Until now, Rhizome was understood in its special form as de-centralized multiplicity and so on, but we need to grasp it as the movement that is able to connect freely at any place, at any time, and separate flexibly.

And now, we have to add what is the Resonance that generates the multiple movements of Rhizome.

All of the movements and forms are generated by Resonance.

 

1. Qualia

 

The creativity of Life is based on Qualia Resonance. When Qualia encounter other Qualia, they automatically generate new Qualia through resonance. We named it as the “Resonant Emergence” of new Qualia. It is the secret of the infinite creativity of Life.

 

2. String

 

Everything is made by the difference in resonance pattern of the String

According to the String theory of modern physics, everything in the Universe is generated by the difference of the resonance pattern of the String. The String is extremely tiny. It’s planck length is the shortest length in the universe;

0.1(-33) m=0.000000000000000000000000000000000m.

071112_string_size.jpg

 

Energy and Mass

 

In the Universe there are four kinds of forces (interactions); Gravity, Magnetic-electric force, Strong force, Weak force.

Einstein found that Energy and Mass is the same thing. They are able to convert mutually. According to the principle of relativity, the famous formula; E=mc2 shows that energy equals mass.

All mass and energy are made by the difference of the resonance pattern of the String.  

 

Eleven dimensions

The String is resonating in 11 dimensions space. Six dimensions are curled up into the Planck length, and there are three big dimensions that are well known by our daily sense.

IMAGE5.JPG

Fig 1.  6 dimension of Calabi Yau space

Fig 2. The String is resonating everywhere in the space

 

The String is unable to count

The String has no number, because they always become one and separate into two flexibly, nobody can count it.

SPACE1.JPG

Fig 3.  The String can change their numbers by connecting and separating flexibly.

 

Infinite Resonance pattern

The resonance patterns of String is infinite, they can change the sizes, shapes infinitely.

string_001600.jpg 

7588655_f520.jpg

Fig 4, 5. The resonance pattern of the String is infinite.

 

Qualia’s resonance pattern is infinite, too.

I guess that infinity might be connected by Qualia and String. Because, there is only one infinity in the Universe.

And it must be Life that connects the two.

 

3. Life

 

Life was born four billion years ago on the planet. According to the String theory, Life is born by the unique resonance pattern of the String.

The new born Life has a special resonance pattern completely different from the previous other materials. It is the Qualia as the Life Resonance.

Life can recognize the change of its own cell’s condition through resonance with the environment as Qualia, and has a special ability to remember it as the cellular memory.

The ability above is called ‘Outer Qualia”, and below is called “Inner Qualia”.

Life has both, the ability of outer Qualia and inner Qualia as Life Resonance.

This is the completely novel force that only Life has in the Universe. Qualia as the Life Resonance is the fifth force in the Universe.

 

4. Rhizome

 

As we have seen above, the form and movement of Qualia and the String is Rhizome.

Connect and separate freely with resonance anytime and anywhere, then generate new resonance patterns of new Qualia and String.

In the Rhizome, the resonant emergence is most likely to occur. That is why the String has generated this Universe and Life has infinite creativity.

Everything in this Universe is created by the difference in the resonance pattern of the string. It is known that the world of matter and energy changes with the four forces discovered so far, four interactions (gravity, electromagnetic force, strong force, weak force).

However, in order to understand life it is necessary to extract the logic of the fifth interaction, <qualia as life resonance>. Qualia cannot be grasped by four interactions. It is the fifth interaction born in space with the birth of life.

Modern intelligence has been imprisoned by humanistic subject illusion. And with it’s humanoid fantasy of capitalism coupled with the illusion of positioning Christian humans at the apex of the universe, those with capital have continued to destroy the global environment as desired.

However, now it is time to crush the human subject illusion and to have to change the world by the principle of <life resonance>.

<Life Resonance> is fundamentally different from the subject-predicate relation like the established logic so far.

Resonance has neither a subject nor an object. It happens naturally from both sides. This is the Resonance.

To date we have become accustomed to interpreting human beings as the subject of every phenomenon.

So, we are used to understand in this manner: "I see the flower." without wonder. However, when we see this process from the viewpoint of the Resonance theory, it is only a delusion captured by a human-like subject illusion. Light resonance is occurring between the flower and your eyes before you see it. It is Life Resonance between the flower and you. As a result of the resonance between you and the flower that mediated the light, the flower image stimulates your visual nerve cells, and in your brain, the illusion that "I am watching the flowers" is established.

We need to grasp every phenomenon related to Life once again as <Qualia Resonance>. This is what is actually happening as it is without any bias of the illusion of humans as subjects.
