Non-dual and Eight channels



Listen to the Non-dual Qualia

 

When we calm down our daily mind and body by Medimotion and start to listen to the body, at first we feel something undefined which we can’t distinguish what it is; “Is this sensation? Imagination? Dream? Illusion? feeling?”. It seems something mixed all of them. We call it “Non-dual” Qualia. Life of the hundred trillion cells of our body is resonating with multiple Qualia of Gravity, Sunshine, Air, temperature, moisture, sound and so on. Not only those of present physical Qualia but also memories of them reserved in the cell as the four billion years Life memories. Qualia are resonating with those multiple and non-dual Qualia and changing always. That why we can’t recognize it clearly.

When we continue to listen to with medimotion, or self-researching with changing body position, sometimes the Qualia appear through a channel, and it becomes clear to recognize as the bodily sensation like warm/cold, heavy/light and so on. Sometimes it appears as the spontaneous movement, sometimes visit us as a visual image, or audio image of voice, sound or music. Sometimes as an emotion, human relationship Qualia or world image=self-image, or a word or phrase and so on.

This is the Rhizome=Tree sway of the Qualia. In other words, Non-dual=dual sway. Qualia is always swaying between them. Listen to it transparently and follow it by your whole body=mind.

 

 

 

 

Fig.2 Qualia are streaming among non-dual and eight channels

 

Dancing between Non-dual and dual Qualia

See the fig.2. The most of Qualia, maybe over 99.9999% Qaulia are non-dual and Rhizome without any orders and hierarchy. They are hidden in our hundred trrrilion cell’s Life memories. Out brain can’t recognize it.

But through medimotion, our body’s cells become able to remind it, and appear at some channels Qaulia; sometimes bodily sensation, spontaneous movement, visual fantasy, audio body sound, emotion, human relationship, world-self-image and Qualia thinking and so on.

Hunt the moment and follow it by your whole body=mind=brain, it become your subbody-cobody.

We are waiting for people who want to develop this Life Resonance Art method into, Art therapy, Dance therapy, Music therapy and so on.

This is the way everyone can become a unique artist in the world.

 

Opening eight channels 

Be aware of eight channels

 

Life lives in the non-dual and multi-dimensional resonance world which are not separated in any channels. But our consciousness can recognize Qualia at only one channel at a moment. And opening channels are changing unconsciously. Sometimes some channels are closed at all. Be aware of them.

Resonance between extrovert Qualia and introvert Qualia

we have eight main channels; bodily sensation, movement, visual, audio, emotion, human relationship, world image=self-image, and thinking channel. Open each channel one by one. There are an extrovert channel and introvert channel in each of eight channels.
Extrovert Qualia and introvert Qualia are resonating at every moment.
Listen in the body, and be aware of the extrovert and introvert channel.

1. Body sensation channel


Extrovert Body channel 
Listen in the body. You can feel various bodily sensations which you feel right now and here; heavy, light, warm, cold, stiff, flexible, itchy, and so on.
There are so many Qualia which are not able to describe by word. Feel every quale.
Introvert Body channel 
Close your eyes, and listen deeper into the darkness of the body. You can feel inner Qualia of bodily sensation which are reserved as memory.
Almost of them are not able to describe by word. They are changing and streaming always. Listen in them as an inner Qualia stream of bodily sensation. 

2. Movement channel

 

Extrovert movement channel
Movement is resonance. It is an interaction between body and environment. Step the ground. You can feel the reaction from the ground. Move a part of the body. Also, it is the interaction between space and body. The sway, vibration, wave, shock, collapse, stillness and so on are the variations of resonance pattern. 
Extrovert movement is a real-time resonance at right now and here. 

Introvert movement channel
Listen in each part of the body. Each part has a tendency of movement. Our life of cell reserves all kind of Qualia of movement as memories. They are the introvert Qualia of movement. Before moving, our life rehearses imaginary movement with using introvert Qualia of movement. In the real movement also, the introvert Qualia and extrovert Qualia are resonating in each moment, though our consciousness is not aware of it. Be aware of the resonance. 

3. Visual channel


Extrovert visual channel
when you open eyes, you can feel extrovert visual Qualia of the environment with shape, color, and so on. To receive these real-time visual Qualia are the extrovert visual channel.

 

Introvert visual channel
Close your eyes. You can feel introvert visual Qualia as the inner images. This is an introvert visual channel. Our brain recognizes everything through resonance between introvert Qualia which are reserved in the brain and extrovert Qualia from eyes, then judge it as something. 

4. Audio channel


Extrovert audio channel
Listen to the sound of the space where you are now. This is to open the extrovert audio channel. Also, when you speak or sing, you open the extrovert audio channel.

Introvert audio channel
Listen in the darkness of the body. You can feel various inner Qualia of sound, voice, melody, rhythm, sentence, and so on. They are the introvert audio Qualia. Also, the extrovert audio Qualia and introvert audio Qualia are resonating in the brain always. 

5. Emotion channel


Extrovert emotion channel
Emotion is the messenger from the body to the brain. When the condition of a part of body changes, an emotion happens and transcend to the brain as a specific emotion unconsciously. When we notice about it, it shifts from emotion to feeling. Then we can recognize the change of body condition in each moment.

Introvert emotion channel
Also, so many Qualia of emotion is reserved in the brain. Though the resonance between inner Qualia of emotion and extrovert Qualia of emotion from the physical body, our brain can recognize the condition of being. Be transparent to the whole process of resonance. 

6. Human relationship channel


Extrovert relationship channel
this channel is a complex channel integrated by various single channels.
When you recognize a person in from of you, your relationship channel is activated through the visual image of face and body, movement, voice, and emotion of the person. 


Introvert relationship channel
at the same time, an inner tendency comes up in the darkness of body to wish to approach the person or to keep a distance from the person with the resonance of inner Qualia as memories of face, body, movement, voice, emotion and so on.
Also without a real person, the introvert Qualia of relationship are streaming and changing to be solitude, feeling of loneliness, a tendency for communication, a sexual connection, and so on. 
Always the introvert Qualia and extrovert Qualia are resonating. 
7. World=Self channel

Extrovert world=self-image channel
When your consciousness is active, you can recognize where I am, and who I am. Where and who are unified as oneness always. When you change the place, also your world image and self-image are shifted together from a set to another set. 
When you are at home, your
self-image is a member of the family; father, mother, daughter or son. When you go abroad, the world becomes a foreign country and your self-image shifts to a foreigner. When you meet a girlfriend, your self-image becomes her boyfriend.

Introvert world=self-image channel
our introvert world image and self-image are streaming and changing always; a comfortable condition, uncomfortable condition. In a dream, you experience various kinds of world image and self-image. In the imagination, your world and self-image shift from present condition world to another image which you wish.
When the world image and your image fit well, you feel that everything is good. You can open your will healthily. When there happens a gap, you feel that something is wrong, and your will does not spread healthily. 

8. Thinking channel


Extrovert thinking channel
normally our consciousness uses language for thinking. It divides everything into an element. We use a dualistic logic which judges everything into good/bad, right/wrong, in/out, bottom/top, self/others, friend/enemy, beautiful/ugly, subject/object, and so on. 

Introvert thinking channel. 
There is a <Qualia language> between non-dual Qualia and dualistic language. When we are in the state of subbody mode or mind wandering state, we are doing <Qualia thinking>. It is association from a Qualia to another Qualia connected by only “and”, without any logic and grammar. Like the following;

 

“ I”- “go to” –“forest”-“meet a tiger”- “escape” –“fell in a hole”

 

And so on. 

All like this basic Qualia language are participated with us. Everybody can understand and able to follow it.

This is the principle of <Qualia Share>.


This caused the Rhizome revolution, we can share each one’s unique Qualia, and no need a special choreographer. They will vanished in a near future.

Reduce Gross Qualia in each channel

 

<Reduction by X and regeneration> is the most important method of Hijikata Weakened Butoh.

This week, we will study to reduce Gross Qualia in each channel, and transform the original weakened body as the following;

 

Reduce Gross body in the body channel

Extrovert Qualia of body channel means physical somatic sensation, warm, cold, stiff, flexible, heavy, light, pain and so on.

In the traditional meditation in Asia, it is called "Gross body".

Introvert Qualia of body channel means inner Qualia in the cell, memory, dream, imagination, illusion and so on.

In the traditional meditation in Asia, it is called "Subtle body".

We reduce all Gross body, and we can be "Subtle body". Subbody has two meanings; one is "Subconscious body" other is "Subtle body".

The weakened body is also a subtle body. Then we can transform into "Vaporized body" as spirit or soul or "Kugutsu body" as the stone which is a form of the spirits for a rest in the Animistic world.

Hijikata called "Carry Density" technique to change the density of body among solid, fluid and vapor.

The weakened body is also collapsed body or disabled body in each channel. We can reduce a part of the body; an arm, leg, an organ, or a sensation, nerve of eyes, ears, smell, taste, and voice and so on.

 

Reduce Gross movement in the movement channel

We can reduce the speed, size, intensity, will, time, space with using daily surface muscle.

We use only deep layer muscles which is 'Hidden muscle" with subtle shivering, swaying, waving (warping), shocking, collapsing and dying.

We can reduce the illusion of the "Activeness" then we can be passive body as "Kugutsu body" or "Humanoid" which is moved by someone.

Invent various reduced bodies as your original weakened body.

Continue this in each channel...

( See “Reduced body” in the chapter 6 Co-researching)

12 Conditioning method 7 Rhizome 
25 November, 2020

Conditioning No. 7. Rhizoming

 

Conditioning No. 7 Rhizoming

Rhizoming means to become a Rhizome.

What is Rhizome?

The Rhizome dismantles the inner tree system of the daily mind and body. In the daily body, the mind or ego is a king that controls the body. We destroy this inner hierarchy. Any part of the body is moved by someone. Following deterritorialization, each part is released from its daily role and transforms. Your arm can connect to someone’s pelvis and someone’s head connects to your back and so on. Each part of the body becomes a nomad and starts traveling beyond the borders freely.

The following are the properties of a Rhizome:

 

Segment the body into minimum pieces, each part of them transforms infinite different beings

The Rhizome is a multidimensional manifold. Someone segments our body into tiny pieces and each part transforms into various beings. An unexpected transformation begins with an unexpected Qualia with unexpected spacing and timing.

 

Connects and separates freely

The rhizome is the opposite of the hierarchical Tree. It is the most flexible transforming being which is able to connect freely and separate flexibly at any point. One cell of Rhizome can initiate new resonance pattern and organize a new world.

 

No center, no hierarchy

Rhizome has no center and no hierarchy. There is no fixed leader. Each of them can jump on the top position with initiating new Qualia and organize a novel space.

 

Deterritorialization and reterritorialization

Each part of the body can release from the territory of the ego and travel freely as a nomad and connects with something else becoming any things like a novel chimera and so on. It occupies new space and reterritorializing it as a new Rhizome land. The Rhizome can invade into any Tree system and change it to a novel Rhizome.

 

The Future of human

A Rhizome is a sprout form of the future of human society. When the Rhizome will spread to the world, someday the hierarchical order of human society will vanish.

 

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.

 12 Conditioning method Six realms
24 November, 2020

Conditioning No.
6  Rokudo (Six Realms)

 

 

Pass through six kinds of Qualia to your body

Life resonates with really different things. It is easy to see that it is resonating with various Qualia of the world such as gravity, air, light, sound, and wind, but not only them.
Life resonates with also dreams that cannot be remembered, distant Life memories, Qualia of dead people, subtle tendencies of unconscious body, etc. It resonates with Qualia of many invisible different worlds. That is the actual condition of Life. In the Subbody Conditioning No. 6 "Six Realms", through six kinds of movements, we interact with various different worlds, and transform into a body opened to the multi-dimensional world.
First, we pass through all the parts of the body by the following movements; Vibration, Sway, Wave, Shock, Collapse, and Death, one after the other or randomly. The Qualia of the physical movement resonates strongly with the Qualia of some memory and waits for the moment when it becomes one. As a discovery of that day, name it, save it in the darkness of the body. The accumulation of those Qualia eventually leads to the <Clouding body technique> in the future.
Always accumulate a large variety of unique Qualia in each layer of the Hidden Skin around the body and put the Qualia on them. Especially when you dance with improvisation, when you create choreography, the unique Qualia that you can cling from them will help your creations.

1. Vibration

Life of cell resonates with the environment by fine vibrations.
Life resonates with subtle vibration of the earth, air, light, sound, and so on.
The outer Qualia that resonate with those physical Qualia and the inner Qualia that are memory, dream, imagination, illusion, etc. are resonating at the same time together every moment.
The subtle vibrations are a manifestation of variegated Life Resonance. There are various vibrations such as trembling of the cold, shivering of scared to invisible things, quivering of will and expectation. While feeling its fineness, find and accumulate unique vibration of that day somewhere in the body.
And, we will organize our bodies that can dance the difference between various kinds of vibrations of Life. We have to build up this on my own.
During this, you try to be Transparency that is not bound by inside and not bound by outside, too.
We become a Transparent body that opens equally by half inside and half outside.

2. Sway

When vibration becomes longer, it will grow to the sway.
Life resonates with everything by pleasant sways.
Taste and enjoy the <Sway of Life>.
The sway of solid matter, the sway of body fluid, the sway of respiration,
the sway of memories, dreams that disappear and remembered.
And the sway which evaporates from this world to another world.
Sway is also a passage to another world that is invisible.
The Vaporized body begins with learning a variety of sways.
We will pass a large variety of sway through each part of the body. Every day, continue until new Qualia of sway are found.

3. Wave

Every creature has its own unique rhythm of wave. The undulation of caterpillar, a wave of snake, a wave of the beast, a wave of growing plants, the undulation of the proto ocean, etc.
Hold off the moment when the unexpected appearance of undulation of the protozoic creature in the body or the proto world.
Various kinds of waves are hidden in the darkness of the body.
Follow the various kinds of undulation and find the best resonance pattern of the Life of that day and stamp it on your body.

4. Shock 

Cell's Life memorizes various shocks that Life has received during the 4 billion years.
Originally the Life was very fine, so we received it as a huge shock with just a small stimulus. From small stimuli such as raindrops, dust, insects, to waves, winds, stones, earthquakes, thunder, fire, battles, and so on. Life has been moved by those.
Many of the signals from different worlds surrounding Life come as shocks. Life has experienced all of those shocks and has invented a technique to survive with overcoming them.
The Qualia of shock leads to Qualia of world transformation for Life. Exploring Qualia of world change and self-transformation such as contraction of the uterus at birth, the sudden disappearance of guardian, natural disaster, etc. becomes one.

5. Collapse

If a strong shock or stimulation/pressure continues, part of the body breaks and loses resilience. Even if you become a crippled distressed body, life will still survive. In restricted movement, invent the way to survive. Life has this infinite inventive power. Becoming a body crushed to the extreme of inconvenience. From there, we will see what kind of movement is invented. And it also resonates with the suffering of the deceased brothers who are still alive.
Weakened body or the disabled body is the foundation of <Flower of Kan (=Disability)> which is deep Life Resonance beauty.

 

6. Death 

Death is the most familiar Qualia for Life. We are always swaying between death and Life constantly comes back from the edge of death. And, one day, I got to go.

Look at this world from the world of death!
It is the position of Butoh dancers that is the Shisha or dead body standing desperately.
It is felt that this world is full of Life Resonance and full of Qualia. We were originally on the side of death. It is an existence borrowing a Life for less than a hundred years from the eternal Life of 4 billion years. Before we die, return the whole of your creation to Life. I can laugh and die if I can do it. That is the perfection of Jo-ha-Kyu of Life.

 

 

From Tibetan Tanka ( Budhism thought about the six kinds of states of Life)

 

Tenjo-do (Heaven): A celestial country, enjoys beautiful pictures, dances, and music all day. (But lacks resonance with other miserable people.)

Human-do: Frightened by old, illnesses, cannot escape from the pains, and sufferings.

Shura-do: Obsessed with the desire to stand on people, and never stop fighting.

Chikusho-do (Animal): You have to eat other creatures to live in.

Gaki-do (Ghoul): Obsessed with the desire of insatiableness even if you eat.

Jigoku-do (Hell): Smile at watching the suffering of others.

 

Rokudo transformation

 

1. Someone changes body posture while moving at ultra-slow speed. Traveling while transforming the Rokudo worlds. Rokudo is  Qualia that everyone has in secret in the subconscious.

2. The body posture changes slowly with shiverings. Taste the suffering of the world.

3. Somewhere in the body begins to sway. As each part is vaporizing and becomes a vaporized body from the sitting position to the standing position.

4. You enjoy dancing and creating without compassion for other's miseries.

4. Waves and spirals slowly change your body. Twists pass through the body and your body is warped.

5. The posture changes with minute impacts or shocks From fine shock to continuous battle.

5. Somewhere in the body shrinks and condenses. Transform into a disabled body

6. Mix of all kinds of Rokudo movements pass your body  eternally. Possessed by the endless desires. Never satisfied even you would get them all.

7. Become a dead that is wandering around the misery of Hell.

 

 Watch this world from the world of death

 

It is the position of Butoh dancers that is the Shisha or dead body trying to stand desperately. It is felt that this world is full of Life Resonance and full of Qualia.

When I was alive, I had a tendency to deny the Ego too much, it is my bias. On the edge of death and Life, we can take off own biases, and see transparently not bound by anything including own bias.

We were originally on the side of death. We can see transparently what Life is.

 

What is Life? What is vitality?

The tendency of the ego of the human including both of the self-confidence and egoistic tendency may develop from the cell’s Life. We co-research about it with going and coming between Life and death, between non-dual Qualia and dualistic language, between Rhizome and Tree. The whole process of Rhizome=Tree was called “Tao” by ancient Tao people.

Human is an existence borrowing a Life for less than a hundred years from the huge Life tide of 4 billion years.

Before we die, we return the whole of our creations to Life. And we can laugh and die. That is the perfection of Jo-ha-Kyu of Life.

Five Hidden Qualia 
23 November, 2020

Conditioning No. 5  

Five hidden Qualia

 

Opening five hidden Qualia 


Try to open the following five Qualia that daily body has forgotten.
Hidden cavities
Hidden joints
Hidden muscles
Hidden fluid
Hidden skins


 

 

Hidden cavities

 

Rhizoming in hidden cavities
We have so many hidden cavities in our body. The deeper level of bodily sensations and forgotten memories are connected to these hidden cavities.
The daily body has forgotten them at all. But through the medimotion cells can remember them. When we use them flexibly, we get so wide possibility to transform various kinds of creature and beings including Hidden personalities.
After the practice of 'Upstream Life medimotion', 'Three-dimensional body cavity' and 'Three-dimensional oral cavities', proceed to follow the transforming method.

1. Transform from various body cavities
With following the subtle signal of body image from your life, change the shape of the body cavity in various dimensions.
Ask to your life 'What creature' body image do you remember today?' 
If you get a subtle melting tendency of your life, follow it and transform your own ameba or another creature.
If your subbody wants to flow, follow the sub-signal, you can transform jellyfish or sea anemone and so on.
Our life had spent time in the water for so long time, then our subbody can remember the Qualia of inner water life.
With using various kinds of breathing, change the shape of your body cavity, in various rhythm, speed, and directions.

2. Transform from oral and nose cavity
Also transform from the oral cavity, nose cavity, with various breathing way, you can get so fresh body sensation and emotion, world image stream and so on.

3. Transform from eye cavity
Change your eye with following your life memories, what have you seen in the deep sea, underground, and complete darkness without eyes.

 

 

4. Transform with breathing and audio channel
When you follow the spontaneous body sounds with various breathing ways, open resonance with the hidden cavities above.

We have many sinuses--cavities within the skull bones surrounding the nasal passage--warm and moisten the air prior to it entering the delicate lung tissue. When the body sound resonates with these cavities, it becomes Hoomee sound of Mongolian and Tuvin people. They taste the sounds like a voice of Heaven. You can open another dimension through the audio channel.

5. Emotional rhizoming
When you follow the spontaneous body sound stream, also your emotion associates and gives sub-signal, follow the subtle emotional stream. Unfold the hidden emotions which are folded in your darkness of body for a long time.

6. Relational rhizoming
our subbodies are always streaming with changing channels, when you get a subtle signal of the human relational channel, follow them and enter another relationship. Not an only human relationship, but also open relational ship with some strange imaginary creatures. Enjoy

 playing with them. 

 

7. World image=self-image rhizoming
Final channel is the world=self-image channel.
When you catch a subtle signal of a shift in the world image, follow it and open another world image.
Our life has experienced so many circumstances and environmental changes: ice ages, storms, earthquakes, volcanoes, and so on. 

Enjoy travel in your proto creature's world. Through travel, you became familiar with your various life memories. Develop them until it grows up to your own proto-body which is one of your ten bodies of subbody Butoh.



Hidden joints

 

Metamorphose from a hidden joint
our daily bodies have forgotten so many functions.
The tail is no longer used for the devolution, but we have still the nerve around the tail.
When we imagine the image of the tail in a movement it helps us so much.
sternoclavicular joints (the joint between chest bone and color bone), and sacroiliac joints (sacrum and pelvis) are also forgotten joints.
Try to move these hidden joints very slowly into three-dimensional directions and taste the Qualia. 
If you feel deep resonance at a movement, it is an entrance to your hidden bodies.

 

Chest Joint (Sternoclavicular joint)

 

Move both collarbones forward. The heart fades just a little. Move them even forward, the heart is closed and has been excruciating.
The constellation of the skeleton is changing, introverted self comes out.
Close the chest in addition. We can meet the stony-self who closed to the outside world.
Move both color bones backward. The extroverted character is coming out.
Move them upward. We can remember when we fail something, we shrug one's shoulder.
Move more and our neck disappear like a tortoise shrunken his head.
Move both collarbones down to the bottom. You become a long neck. Move neck with becoming birds and horses.
Move both color bones breading out to the clavicle. 
The sternoclavicular joint is spreading like a free bird chest.
Move both collarbones in a narrow. The sternoclavicular joint is fixed.
Move more, and then chest closed like a fish and snake which doesn't have a chest.
Swim just like a fish with only spine work.

 

 

Sacrum joint (Sacroiliac joint)

Move both pelvises forward. Close to the pelvis and chest. The basic constellation of skeleton changes.
You may metamorphose as a prudent character like an armadillo.
Move both pelvises backward. The sternoclavicular joint also spread to a diplomatic, an arrogant personality comes out.
Move the top of both pelvises closer. The knee becomes X leg, Chest also closed, Twist the arm to the limit. You meet a strange character who was folded in the darkness of the body.
Move the bottom of pelvis closer. At the top of the pelvis is spread to a pregnant mother's position, you can experience the body feeling of pregnancy. Walk with taking care of the baby. You can know what the mother is a little something. Separate both pelvises away from the sacrum. When the distance between the pelvises become maximum, your pelvis becomes the delivery position.
Remember the experience which everybody has been experienced at once.
Move both pelvises close to the sacrum. The pelvis is fixed. 
And even closer to the pelvis, your body becomes a snake or fish.
Swim with using the only spine just like a snake and fish swimming.

 

 

Hidden joints of the hands and feet

 

similarly, move the hidden joints of the hands and feet slowly with a three-dimensional direction.
Center/edge change: Move from the center of the body (Sternoclavicular, sacroiliac), and from the edge of the body; from the tip of a finger, toe. Switch from center to edge, and reverse.
Bottom/top change: Wave coming up from the bottom of the body like a plant, and move from the top of the head like an animal. Switch from bottom wave to top wave, top wave to bottom wave.

Jaw joint and hidden eye movement
Move jaw joint three-dimensional directions, and move eyes in an oblique direction.

You can meet various hidden characters depending on the degree

of twisting. Jocular self, full of ideas, cunning personality, curious character, and so on. When you meet a stranger, slowly become

a friend.

 

 

Hidden muscles

 

To open anatomical transparent eyes for the darkness of the body help us to transform the weakened body.
Our daily bodies are bound by rough and large movement by using

big surface muscles. Also, normal dance, sports are bound by the same rough and large movements.
But we have deep layer muscles under these surface large muscles.
They are not straight but spiral and connect bones beyond plural joints. They are forgotten by the daily body and dissociated into the unconscious realm. I call it "Hidden muscle".
We need to inhibit the gross daily body which is bound by only large surface muscles at first.
Then we can listen to the subtle signal by transparent eye for subbody which is connected to hidden muscle and hidden Qualia. To open other dimensions which do not exist in the daily world with using hidden muscles and hidden Qualia is one of the essences of Butoh technique.  

Hidden muscles in spine and body
When we remove large surface muscles like a large back muscle, chest muscles, and stomach muscles, the longest straight spine muscle appears (fig.1).

 

Fig. 1  Middle layer muscle of the back

This muscle is used to keep the body straight with using bottom muscles together.
When we change the degree of contraction of then, we can control the flexibility of the body. 
For the meditation and Zen sitting, we control them in a medium degree of contraction. 
For transforming stone or puppet, we contract them in maximum degree.
When we release them in each degree, we can transform from solid body to liquid body and vaporized body according to the degree.
When we remove the longest spine muscle, we can find tiny muscles which connect each spine in different dimensions (fig2).

Fig. 2  deep layer muscle of the back

We use these hidden muscles to transform the weakened body.
The skull and each neck spine bones, collar bones, shoulder blades are connected by many tiny hidden muscles in different directions; straight, diagonal and spiral (fig3).

Fig. 3  between skull and neck

The spine and pelvis and leg bones are connected by psoas major which is the biggest hidden muscle. (Fig 4)


Fig. 4  Psoas major

normally we use poses to bend the body and to raise leg forward.
We inhabit these big movements of poses; we just contract poses a little for shortening the leg and subtle swaying.

Hidden muscles of legs and arms 

Most of the hidden muscles run trans plural joints and connects bones apart spirally.

When we stop surface muscles and use the hidden muscles, a strange movement which does not exist in the daily human world appears.

Not made by the head, but following subbodies which live in the darkness of body.

Subbodies have their own Qualia, image, timing, rhythm, we just follow them, and we can sink down another dimension.

 

  

Fig. 5  lower leg

Fig. 6  forearm

The daily body can control only large and rough muscle; big hip muscle, long thigh muscle, hamstrings, and so on.
We need them for daily movement and sports, all kinds of dance, but for weakened Butoh, we start to inhibit the rough and large movements, then we can meet subtly hidden Qualia which are folded in the hidden muscles.
When we control them in contraction and release independently, we can transform any kinds of hidden bodies; not-me body, proto bodies, puppet body, humanoid body and weakened body which is swaying between death and Life.

Long process to become Butoh body
To transform the weakened body, we need both of long training to listen to the subtle Qualia of the darkness of body, and to be able to control subtle swaying of each part of the body in different dimensions by using hidden muscles.
It takes a long time.
Tatsumi Hijikata also needed for five years after the legendary aggressive performance of "Nikutai no hanran" (The rebellion of the body, 1968, Japan), to transform the weakened body which dies down all gross movement of dance he learned and completed the weakened body Butoh.
Start from training for controlling each hidden muscle independently.

Next stage is the trans joints movements with becoming another being in different dimensions.
Always aware of subtly hidden Qualia which are folded in hidden muscles, hidden joints, hidden cavities, and hidden skins by opening a transparent mind, then you can transform another being which lives in different dimensions.

When hidden Qualia which are folded in your hidden part of the body and subtle hidden movement become oneness, the weakened body Butoh begins from there.
Take off all conditions as a human.
Become an unknown being swaying between this world and another world.
Look at this living world by dead eyes from another world

Hidden fluid

 

Proto Ocean for Life

Our human body has sixty trillion cells. Each cell has each independent life.
How do trillions of cells resonate and become one human life?
They have so many kinds of resonance patterns which life has invented in four billion years after the birth of origin life.
But they need definitely water environment for resonance because the important ways of resonance were invented in the ocean. 
Still, now, our life needs the same environment as the proto ocean in our body for communication. 
The origin of life was born in the ocean. They need the same environment for reproduction.
Then for the cell fusion of sperm and ovum needs the environment of fluid as the vagina and womb same as the proto ocean.
Glia neuron network in the brain needs also proto ocean environment as the cerebrospinal fluid.
Six trillion cells need Proto Ocean for resonance, it is the body fluid. 
But the consciousness doesn't take care of it, and then we call it "Hidden fluid".

Listening in the hidden fluid
when we calm down the consciousness, we can listen to the subtle changes in the condition of body fluid. Around 60-70% of our body is made of water.
There are four basic ways of communication among cells; 1. Contact-dependent, 2. Paracrine, 3. Synaptic, 4. Endocrine. All of them need body fluid as a medium.
Body fluid is the medium for cells resonance with the various system of the body.
The endocrine system uses blood and lymph fluid for communication of various hormones. 
Also, the immune system needs the body fluid for the activity of macrophage, T-cell, B-cell, and NK (=Natural killer) cell. They are moving beyond the blood, lymph and body cells.
Neurons are connected by the synapse with other neurons. At the synapse, body fluid is necessary as a medium for the neurotransmitter. Glia cells and neuron cells communicate at the synapse with using various transmitters.
To listen to the hidden fluid is to listen to the life resonance among sixty trillions cells of the body.
When the conditions of body fluid change, we receive Qualia as emotion and desire.
If water decrease in the blood, we feel thirsty. If sugar decrease, we feel hungry.
If sexual hormone increases, we feel sexual desire. If blood pressure increases, we feel uncomfortable, and so on.

Become fluid body
Sway with the ocean. There is no border between inside and outside. Just resonate with everything. 

Transform from hidden fluid
when we can change the Qualia of body fluid, we can transform our bodies into various conditions, and various being; frozen, liquid, vaporized, stone, and various creatures. 
Invent your own ways of transformation from the hidden fluid. 

Keep on listening to the subtle change of hidden fluid. 
It means to listen in the conditions of life. 
Keep on listening in the subtle resonance of life all day long. 
It is the way to be with life.


Hidden skins

 

Origin of Hidden skin

 

The hidden skin is a remained sense from the old age of life. Life has changed shape and way of life in the four billion years history from one-celled creature to multi-celled creature, but each specific Qualia is reserved in the cell. Hidden skin has a long history from one-celled age and through each creature’s age, fetus age to present. How can we remember the hidden Qualia of them? I will tell you the origin of each layer of hidden skin, and how to wake up the slept senses...

 

The 1st layer: Placenta

A fetus of the mammal is wrapped by a thin film which is called Placenta. The placenta protects the fetus against shocks from the outside world. The fetus recognized the world through the subtle vibration of the placenta. At that time the five senses were not separated, also eight main channels were not separated. They were oneness including the sense of pain, pressure, temperature, smell, taste, movement, light, sound, and the world-self channel. Like as the one-celled creature, the fetus resonated with all Qualia and recognized the world totally through the placenta. 

After birth, the sense of placenta remains throughout the whole life. A specific way of sensing has remained even the organ has vanished; like as the tale, lost limbs, and so on. The sensing Qualia through placenta have remained. It is not noticed by consciousness, but the subconscious uses the non-dual and multiple Qualia as the most sentient feeling about the world and self-condition. The Subbody’s main channel is this non-dual and multi-dimensional channel.

Try to practice with the subtle contact movement with a partner by the closest distance between touching and not touching. Everybody must enjoy a comfortable resonance and fall into the state of dreaming.        

 The 2nd layer: Amniotic fluid

Outside of placenta is the layer of amniotic fluid. We have spent for ten months in the ocean of womb, and life had spent four billion years in the real ocean. Thats why the Qualia of being moved by the outer wave are so dear for us. Practice the pair movement by a proper distance with a partner with sending imaginary wave each other. You must like it. Also, through the practice of school of fish, you can remember of fish's 2nd layer Qualia.

The 3rd layer: Womb

The womb was the biggest shelter for the fetus. We need a proper small space like a bedroom, a bathroom, and so on for relaxing in a safe feeling. If your house is invaded by the unknown alien, you must feel deep fear, because the safety shelter layer is shaken and invaded.           

 

The 4th layer: World

Mother’s body was the world for the fetus. We have felt the world through the resonance with mother’s body, your deepest nature before you get your own ego and character which the origin is not unknown may come from the experience of resonance with your mother’s body in your fetus age.

 

The 5th layer: Out of the world
Out of the world, the layer is the alien space. When we enter an alien land, our body responds automatically the sympathetic nerve mode and adrenalin spread the body for preparing the condition of flight or fight. When you encounter an unknown thing or people, see your body condition transparently and release your body from the natural response of the body. Otherwise, you may be bound by the uncomfortable mode unconsciously.

 

The 0th layer: The skin

The cell has many receptors in the cell membrane and resonates with every kind of matters through them. It is the real physical communication layer with the environment, comparing the placenta is imaginary communication organ through Qualia.  Also, the sense of touch controls the resonance pattern with the environment. By sharing the same shape of the skin, you can resonate with the inner Qualia of the body naturally.

 

 

The -1st layer: The fascia

The body fluid is streaming under the skin layer. It is the biggest medium for inner communication. Many kinds of transmitter substances are floating and controlling the resonance pattern among all cells. The signs of change in bodily condition come out as emotions. The Qualia of each emotion is the biggest messenger between life, body, and consciousness. When we are able to see the condition of body fluid and control it by various techniques, we can transform numerous being. 

 

The -2nd layer: The muscle

The muscles are classified to surface muscle and deep layer muscle. The consciousness of daily body control surface muscles according to the habit and manner of modern human society. When we inhibit the big and rough habitual movement by surface muscles, the hidden movements come out from the darkness of the body.

 

The -3rd layer: The hidden muscle

The hidden muscles are not noticed by daily consciousness. But the deeper response with the Qualia of hidden skin is responded by them. Listen to the subtle resonance among the hidden skin and hidden muscles. To open the hidden sense which is folded in the body is one of the main training of Butoh.

 

The -4th layer: bones and joints

The hidden muscles are running spirally under the straight surface muscles, and connect each hidden joint beyond plural numbers of bones. Be aware of them, too.

 

The -5th layer: The inner organs

There are so different hidden cavities in our body. Make it your daily habit to listen to the subtle signal from the inner organs and hidden cavities. Invent your original dance from the hidden cavities. It must become the flower of your Butoh.

The secret of creativity of hidden skin

We have another skin except for normal physical skin of the daily body.
I call it "Hidden skin".
Normal skin is our individual body's skin.
Hidden skin is the skin of life which has four billion years old.
In this hidden skin, so many experiences of life are folded.
If we can unfold it properly, it will show infinite creativity.
What is hidden skin?
It is life memories which were folded in cells when we were a lower creature like ameba and jellyfish.
At that age we felt every Qualia through the skin, we didn't have eyes.
Through receptors of the cell, we caught and tasted every material and energy.
After then our eyes, nerves, and brain specialized from skin cell.
Today at the subbody class we tried to open visual channel.
Through various practices, we learned various ways of how to use eyes.
We practiced glass ball eyes, transparent eyes, translucent eyes, half eyes, white eyes, sick eyes,
collapsed eyes, humanoid eyes, dead eyes, point eyes, kabuki eyes, floating eyes, animal eyes, and so on.
After that, I tried to open "creator's eyes" just as an experiment.
It is from my experience of creating Butoh.
The main channel of my subbody was touch channel.
My hidden skin created almost all of my Butoh pieces.
I noticed that when the touch channel and eye channel became oneness, it generated so strong creativity.
I thought of that it was only my special case for long time, and then I could not inform this to others.
But today I guided students to try to create with using both touch channel and eye channel at the same time.
Concretely, we created something with imaginary touching in the space and watched by eyes something which
was created by hands in the space.
Then I found that every student enjoyed creating one's own imaginary something in the space like a sculptor.
Everybody could show what one has so many rich hidden Qualia in one's hidden skin.
And I saw the touch channel and eye channel resonated so strongly.
I surprised because it seemed an infinite fountain of creativity.
What is happening?
I found a hidden secret.

Carrying Density method  
21 November, 2020

Conditioning No. 4  Carrying Density




“Carrying density” is a term of Hijikata.
It was a very important technique for him to transform various being in
the world and the invisible ‘Behind world’. Change the density of the
body flexible; from fluid to vapour and solid. Because only through this
technique we can transform into everything in the Universe. I hope you
practice this every day. In advanced research, you can mix the
‘Carrying Density’ and conditioning No.5, 6, 7, 8 to research deeper
transformation.

We change the density of the body from fluid, to vapor and solid to become various beings in the Universe including imaginary beings.

Animal
Become an animal position
Someone lift up the center of your back toward the sky
Someone pull down it toward the earth
Someone rotate your body in arrow dimensional circle and reverse way
Someone rotate your body in diagonal directions
Your body increases fluidity like various animals and creatures.

Saido (Subtle vibration)
Someone vibrate your body at various parts with a very fine vibration
With this subtle vibration (=Saido) someone changes your body from bottom position via. animal to standing position and opposite.

Vaporizing
Someone shift from Saido to subtle sway and the body transforms to the vaporized body.
Let each cell remember when we were one-celled creatures like bacteria or ameba. We are floating in the ocean and when it became dry, we float in the air as the dust.

Frozen
The temperature change to very cold and whole body shift to the frozen body, solid body, stone body, and mountain body.
Thus, through the resonance with the world, the density of the body is changed.
Through this <Carrying density> technique, you can transform into everything in the Universe and imaginary beings.

Conditioning No. 2 
Swaying Medimotion

 

 

Swaying medimotion

 

1. Imagine that someone pulls up your head by are a string to the sky and pull down your imaginary tale to the center of the earth.

2. Imagine that someone pulls one of your chest spines forward and the body slowly follows it.

3. As the same as it, someone pulls your spine backward.

4. Not only spine someone pulls various part of your body to the various directions.

5. Someone pulls your head to contact to the floor and pull up your leg.

6. Someone changes your body poster unexpected forms.

7. Continue to listen to the Qualia stream in various body shapes.

8. Research novel Qualia that you have forgotten. This is the beginning of the self-research.

Clock sway Medimotion


1. Someone moves your body from 12 O’clock to 6 O’clock.
2. Shift to 1 O’clock to 7 O’clock.

3. 2 O’clock – 8 O’clock

14. Random directions


Sho-Shu-Ten sway Medimotion

 

(Continue from Bottom breathing)
When you breathe out completely in practice of bottom breathing, release your bottom to breathe in and send air to your bottom of the back.
Send air and attention from the lower back, middle back, upper back, behind of neck, behind of head, top head, front head, nose, and to upper mouth with breathing in. With breathing out, send attention to lower mouth, jaw, front of the neck, chest, stomach, lower stomach and bottom.
Say hello to each part of the body, 'How are you today? Are you OK?' 
Communicate with every part of your body with this practice.

Variations of Swaying medimotion

 

You can vary "Swaying meditation" in various ways like the following.

1. Rotate pelvis
Rotate body from pelvis slowly with deep breathing, and find the most comfortable sway by the most relaxed rhythm and size.

Listen to the Qualia (=bodily feelings) in each part of the body. Taste the subtle difference between each part of the body.

 

2. Imaginary tale sway 
Imagine that you have a long tale, and someone sways it in the underground in a different direction, and then your body is swayed by the influence.
Enjoy the feeling that you are moved by someone with comfortable rhythm.
Continue swaying until your whole body becomes full of comfortable sweet feeling flow.

 

3. A shift from thinking mode to listening mode
Stop your thinking, and concentrate to listen to the subtle feeling of the body.
Each part has subtle different feelings. And it is changing always Taste the body feeling flow precisely and enjoys it.

4. Ask your Life
Try to communicate with your Life.
Say 'Hello' to your Life. 'How are you today? 
'What do you want to do?'
Listen to the answer from your Life.

5. Receive the subtle signal from your Life
at first, you cannot catch the answer. It is OK. Just continue asking to your life every time. After some time, life will give back answer to you. The answer is not by word but through somebody feelings. Catch the subtle signal in the darkness of your body. sometimes it will be a kind of comfortable feeling, another time it will be an uncomfortable feeling. The difference is very subtle, but you can catch it. Taste the rich difference each time. It is the answer from your Life.
Continue this until you are able to taste the subtle difference of the sub-signal from your life each day, you must love subbody than your daily body.
Because of it more creative, and original than daily body which is bound by so many binds and judgment in human society.

 Upstream Life medimotion


Now we regard that we have a life as an individual human.
But it is bound by the daily common illusion, and then it is so hard to feel Life.
We need to remember that we are just simple primitive creature.

1. Someone rotates your pelvis with the most comfortable rhythm and size. 
Find the most comfortable sway, and listen to it.
Through the swaying medimotion and enter into a subconscious mode with calming down our daily mind/body.
2. Imagine that you are the first origin Life which was born on this planet for the first time four billion years ago.
3. Notice of What that our Life continues from the first moment to present without any cutting of sequence of Life.
So our Life is four billion years old. Not only us but all creatures have the same history of four billion years. We share the same time as Life exactly.
4. Image the Qualia of Life of this origin creature. They could not move at all. They just try to continue living.
Taste the most fundamental tendency of Life. Still, our Life has the same tendency that continues to live.
5. Also, taste the proto Qualia of Life. They could not move in the first period for a long time...After for a while, some creature invented how to move by cilia, flagellum, or a movement like an ameba.
But the ability was so weak, they could move very little. Almost always they are moved by an outside power, gravity, 
wave, and wind and so on. These Qualia of hard to move and Qualia to be moved are so deep for Life because our lives continue single-cell age for three billion years.
6. Another proto Qualia of Life is to event new way to live. In the beginning, Life could not breathe with Oxygen gas. They got Oxygen through iron oxide or sulfur dioxide. One day protean bacteria invented breathing, and then they could get Oxygen from air directly. Someday proteobacteria were eaten by other big bacteria. But proteo bacteria keep living in other bacteria because they were well to breathe. They started living together. Proteo bacteria changed to mitochondria. This is one of the big sharing inventions in our Life history.
7. Another big invention was the photosynthesis by cyanobacteria. They started to get energy from sunshine and product their body by getting carbon from carbon dioxide. Also, Cyanobacteria find a way to live together in another cell. They became chlorophyll. They developed to many species of plants.
8. The third biggest invention was the symbiosis between single-cell and another single cell. It happened one billion years before, and then our Life spread into many kinds of shapes, ways of living.

Standing sway medimotion

 1. Standing sways

 Relax your whole body. Become a sea dragon that is swaying in the ocean. Imagine someone moves your imaginary tale, toward front and back, side and side; rotate from smallest circle to biggest circle.

2. Open each channel one by one

Body channel 
Listen to body feeling in each sway. Listen up to various part of the body which is shifting from stiff state to a flexible state. Taste Qualia when your body recovers fluidity.
Taste the mind/body shift when your body becomes a streaming body.
Continue every day until it becomes your pleasure of life.

Movement channel 
Move various ways; Change the initiating part of the body for swaying. Change direction in three dimensions. Change size from minimum to maximum. Change speed from slowest to top speed.

Visual channel 
Close your eyes gradually from half-eye to fully close eyes. Feel the change from conscious mode to subconscious mode depending on the brightness and the dark.
Stop moving and concentrate the shift of body feeling, heartbeat, breasting, the pressure of blood, and so on.

Audio channel 
Try various way of breathing with swaying, from bottom breathing to stomach breathing, chest breathing. Open mouth and throat and listen to the subtle body sound with breathing. Follow the body sound stream with amplifying gradually. Let the sound stream freely.

Emotion channel 
Listen to the subtle change of emotion. When do you feel the subtle uncomfortable feeling? In increasing speed? Changing of blood pleasure? Emotion is the messenger from your life to your consciousness. Talk with your subtle change of emotional signals.

3. Time-traveling in the history of Life 

The conscious process as a human
Go upstream of history of Life with swaying. Transform from human to proto creature gradually. Taste different way to feel Qualia in each stage of Life history. When you are in the stage of human, you feel your body with using cerebral cortex. Watch the human way of tasting Qualia carefully. When we are in daily body mode, our language brain forgets Qualia of Life memory reserved in the cell at all. Then with calming down consciousness, watch carefully how we feel Qualia in the subconscious realm.

Subconscious process
Slowly calm down your conscious level. Listen to the Qualia which your Life resonates in the Ocean. In the unconscious level, our limbic system, hypothalamus, and body have communication. They communicate by neurotransmitter, hormone, like dopamine, noradrenaline, adrenaline, serotonin, acetylcholine, endorphin and so on. We can catch this process through emotion. Taste it with a comfortable body feeling of subconscious mode. Slowly go upstream of the history of Life.

 Animal
Listen to the communication between your cerebellum and body condition with changing balance, body position, and speed, unconsciously your cerebrum is working. Animals move by this system mainly. Taste the moving Qualia as an animal. 

Multi-celled creature

Shrink your body with swaying, bend your knees, close your pelvis, and chest a little bit. Sink into lower creature's state without nerve system.
Lower creatures grasped the body condition without nerve. Their life listens to body condition directly. Become lower creature, and imagine how they control body condition without nerve system. Try to feel the communication between each cell.

Single-celled creature
Shrink a little bit more, and become a single-celled creature.
They can feel Qualia of body condition and the outside world, through changing of cell's condition. When they receive sunshine, their cell becomes warmer, then they can move more flexibly, this change is the way of catching Qualia for them. Thinking and movement are not separated. It is a oneness. Feel this oneness state of life. Life grasped Qualia directly through this change of body condition.

Whole-Self medimotion

With swaying medimotion, ask your Life
"What do you want to do the most?"
About this question, you will meet many kinds of tendencies in your whole self. Say "Hello" to each tendency, and taste the Qualia of each tendency.
This will be long travel in the darkness of the body to meet your whole-self.

 

Life Qualia medimotion

To meet multiple tendencies of Life

When we calm down conscious mind and sink down into the darkness of body, we meet so many diversity of tendencies of Life.
Release from the daily body and daily mind like a human, and taste subtle tendencies in your whole-self world. 

Proto Qualia of Life

 

When we calm down our daily mind and shift to subconscious mode, at first, we can meet non-dual Qualia that is mixed of the primitive proto tendencies of Life and present human life.
They are felt as slow, heavy, and lazy and so on; they may be felt not as the human elements.
They are not recognized by the daily mind. Daily mind ignores them with labeling 'they are not me' because the daily mind is bound by the modern human concept.
According to the human concept, we have to be conscious, we have to keep the intelligent character as a citizen, and then these lower tendencies are driven away to a border area of whole-self. Also our parents, teachers don't affirm these tendencies and deny or ignore them. We had marginalized those Qualia and forgotten them at all.
But when we are released from human concept, we can taste so rich proto tendencies of Life.
I call them, 'Qualia of unable to move', 'Qualia of hard to move', 'Qualia of being moved', and 'Qualia of moving slowly', and so on.
These proto tendencies are imprinted in our cells as deep Life memories through the four billion years history of Life.
Origin Life must be unable to move after for a while Life could learn the way how to move. But their ability of movement was so tiny, and then they have to be moved by the wave of Ocean. For a long time, Life was swaying in the Ocean. 
Then we know these proto Qualia of Life, they are felt so familiar for us. When we follow these Qualia, we can create our own proto body as a type of subbodies. You can create your own ameba body, jellyfish body, hydra body, fish, bird, snake, dragon, animal, bird and unique imaginary creatures. These proto bodies are the first group of subbody.

Hidden characters

The second tendencies are hidden characters. They are called as a sub-character, inferior personality, shadow, not-me, and so on.
These characters are not received warmly to human society.
They are named with a bad image--not beautiful, not right, ugly, rude, rough, wrong, cunning, then denied as a good human character.
Then they have to hide their beings in the darkness of the body as a dissociated self. They are allowed to appear only in the dreamland. 
But when we become familiar with them, they have so unique and rich possibilities--curious, intentional, humorous, friendly, and so on.
They can create another world full of diversity. 

Archetypes

The third big tendency is the archetype.
C.G.Jung found so many archetypes of self-image and research in our collective unconsciousness.
Shadow, Anima, Animus, boy, old wise man, trickster, great mother, and so on.
Jung investigated in only self-image archetypes. But we have so many archetypes in each channel.

Archetypes in body channel are 'bound body' which cannot move at all, 'separated soul' which is left from our physical body, and so on.

Archetypes in movement channel are 'flying body' which can fly freely in the space, 'almighty body', 'secret powered body', and so on. We can meet in our dream world and myth, folktale, and so on.

Archetypes in the visual channel are brightness, darkness, and so many sceneries.

Archetypes in the audio channel are 'whisper from another world', ' voice of god', 'whisper by a demon', whisper from dead', and so on.
If we cannot open a specific channel enough, we are attacked through the channel as an illusion, delusion or strange experiences. When we can open the channel enough, we can play with them freely, because we know them as a familiar member of the whole self.

Archetypes in the emotional channel are stereotypical feelings--sad, anger, pleasure, fear, and so on. Our daily body is bound by these few kinds of typical feelings.
But when we are released from these archetypes, we can taste so rich varieties of feeling. We find millions of gradations between sad and pleasure, anger and fear, and so on. 

Archetypes in human relationship channel are social, solitude, dependence, independence and so on. Sometimes we are bound by these archetypes if our relational channel is not open, but we can travel freely between them in our subbody world by opening the channel.

Archetypes in self-image=world image channel are the Hell, Heaven, womb, Flood, War, the end of the world and so on. In these world image also our self-image is changed as a miserable person, happiest being, fetus, victim and so on.
These archetypes are imprinted in our genome like as the instinct, and then they are so strong. Sometimes they encourage us, but another time they bind us strongly.
When we try to create real creative work, we need to fight against archetype.
Through the travel of the darkness of the body, everybody can meet these diversities tendencies of life. and through the experiences, we can create our own subbody world.
This is one of the universal ways of creation for everybody...
We can create our multidimensional subbody Butoh dances through these diversities experiences.
It will be a gift to open richer awareness for the possibility to live in diversities ways through resonance. Because subbodies come from the deep resonance with a diversity of Life.

12 Conditioning 1 Vibration
18 November, 2020

 

Conditioning No.1 
Vibrating Medimotion

 

Subtle Vibration                                

 

1, Lay down with your torso facing up. Keep your feet perpendicular to the ground. 

2. Shake your feet in head/tail direction in a manner that is most comfortable to your whole body for a few minutes.

3, Raise your left pelvis upwards while the right leg is stretched down. Then raise your right pelvis upwards and stretch the left leg downwards. Slowly increase the speed and amplify this up and down the vibration of the pelvis. You will notice that after a while the pelvis automatically shifts the vibration into a side to side direction. Shake your body from the pelvis in side to side direction. 

4. Slide your feet upwards, bend and join both knees keeping the feet flat and parallel on the ground. Bring feet as close to the body as possible. Imagine that you have a long imaginary tail and vibrate the coccyx in a side-to-side direction from your tail. Change to up and down direction.

5. With your knees still bent and feet parallel on the ground, move the vibration up the spine. Shake each spine bone from the sacrum till neck, separating each from the floor one by one in up/down direction. Continue until your daily mind and body calm down.     

 

1. Vibrate deep layer muscles finely
Shake hidden (=deep layer) muscles finely in all directions at random.
Little deep muscles that connect the spine, and around the pelvis, shoulder blades, deep muscles oblique under the big outer muscle running parallel in the legs, arms and so on.
They are constantly tense unconsciously, in order to maintain the posture of the body.
If you are shaking them tiny randomly, the tension will calm down gradually.
This is almost all, but before of this, it is recommended to stretch all major surface muscles as the following.

2. Sohtai stretch
in fact, before shaking the deep muscle, it is recommended that you stretch over time plenty of outer muscle.
While using the Sohtai breathing, stretch out a part of the body with exhaling, and inhaling at the maximum stretched moment, hold the breath for a while, and drop down all tensions with exhaling.
After letting all the major surface muscles to rest, it is possible to become a body that only deep muscle shakes little by little.

3. In various position
Do it, in the sitting, lying, standing, and various position including dog, fetus, bottom position.

4. Variations of vibration
at first shake it with the short straight line, and gradually vary with adding a curved line, line and curved line, long, short and so on.

5. Follow and amplify
"What do you want to move to? You can move as you like?"
Listen to carefully while asking the tendencies of Life.
Catch a faint tendency, and follow it.
Boarding on a tendency by the whole body, and amplify it to a movement. That's the subbody of today.

12 Conditioning 0 Breathing

From today, I will explain 12 types of conditioning
methods in order.
Try it in a quiet place every morning.
There will surely be a big change in your mind and body that
shifts from daily thinking mode to subconscious body mode.
Whenever language thinking comes out, stop it, and focus on
listening to the darkness of your body.

17 November, 2020

Conditioning No.0 Breathing

 

Breath of Life

 

We have two kinds of breathing. One is the normal lung breathing, and
another is cellular breathing. We can call them outer breathing and inner breathing too.

We have a hundred trillion cells in an adult body. When those cells get
oxygen, they enjoy, get activated and spread. The whole-body size
becomes a little larger with very slow speed. We call this the “Breath of Life.”

From the fetus age, we continue this Breath of Life because in the womb
there is no oxygen gas. The fetus breathing was also the Breath of Life.

To be with Life all the time

When you get the Breath of Life, you can be on the way to become Life.
Listen to Life all the time, Life is resonating not only with Oxygen but
with everything in the world.

Towards the Butoh of Life

This is useful for investigating what is "the Butoh of Life" which Hijikata
longed for in his later years and could not complete, because of his death.

An unknown virgin frontier where nobody has stepped is waiting for you,
right in front of you.

Tao breathing

荘子 - Chuang-Tzu wrote in his book,

 "Normal people breathe by their throat, real people breathe by their heel."

What does it mean?

Some people understand what it means bottom breathing. From the
viewpoint of a human, it may be so.

But I think that the thought of Tao by Laozi and Chung Tzu meant a
viewpoint beyond human. It meant the Life tide which continues for four billion years.

Tao means to integrate all of the Ten-Chi-Jin (Heaven, Earth, and Human),
and they investigated the principle of life beyond human qualities such as
the ego, and self.

From the viewpoint of Tao, heel breathing must mean a kind of the Breath
of Life for becoming one with nature, and the universe.

Multi-dimensional subtle breathing

Multi-dimensional subtle breathing means to breathe through every part
of the body releasing yourself from the lung breathing which is bound by
the idea of a human. We start from the feet.

Open your Yusen 

There is an important tsubo (point) in Shiatsu which is called "Yusen" at
the center of the sole. That point is also the center of the hidden joints
of the sole. Yusen means spring out a fountain in Japanese.  Open the
Yusen with breathing with the earth. Feel all kinds of Qualia from under the ground passing through your body from the Yusen to head.

Breathe "the Breath of Life" from various points of the body
Not only Yusen, but we can also breathe from any point of the body.
Try to breathe in and out from the toe, heel, knee, pelvis, sacrum, arm,
forehead, top of the head, and so on.

Breathe "the Breath of Life" at various points of the body as subtly as
possible. It is the breath of Life, not lung breathing. But don't make an
effort to divide them strictly. It is always resonating among the Breath of
Life and lung breathing. Listen to the resonance of both.

Slowly it transforms into various Qualia resonance of Life, not only breathing,
but also every part starts dreaming, remembering, imaging, and traveling into
various other worlds. 

You can slowly open the multi-dimensional resonance between Life and the
world. Naturally, they are communicating with various other worlds.
 

 

 

Fetus breathing

 

We have two kinds of breathing. One is the outer breathing through the
lungs; another is the inner breathing by each cell. Always feel this double
process of breathing and remember what breathing you did when you were a fetus.

There you were, full of all the water of the womb in your mouth, nose, and
lung. We could not do lung breathing. Oxygen was sent from your mother's
heart into your body. The fetus did only inner breathing at each cell.

 

Try to do fetus breathing

You will notice that it is the same as "The Breath of Life”. It has continued
from the fetus’s age. Oh! the not the only fetus when we are one-celled
creature, but we have also continued our cell breathing.

The breath of Life, the breath of the fetus, and cellular breathing are the same.
Become the cell, and resonate with everything. Life is resonating with everything in multiple-dimensions. With air, gravity, light, sound, memories, dreams, and so on.
Cellular breathing is one of them.

We continue to investigate Life. It is the deepest mystery for us.

 

 

Bottom breathing

 

Bottom breathing is a kind of abdominal breathing.

 

As you exhale, contract the bottom muscles which are around the anus and the lowest stomach muscle.

At the maximum moment of contraction release the bottom and

start inhaling. Repeat the process by exhaling with contracting

bottom again. Follow these stages while practicing the bottom breathing method.

Self-observation

1.Sit quietly

Start abdominal breathing without using the chest part.


2. Observe carefully what happens in your stomach when you

inhale. 


What muscles are used? 
Which part swelled? 
With what timing do they move?

3. Observe that when the diaphragm is pressed down, the lungs spread and air enters the lung, and as the lungs become full, the stomach parts are pressed down. Continue to observe it until you grasp the process clearly. 

4. Observe the exhaling process as well.

5. Grasp that when the stomach contracts and the diaphragm is

pulled up, then lungs are compressed and the air is pushed out.

 

Listen to the Life Resonance between cells

 

What is the Life Resonance between cells?
Each cell of our body gets new Oxygen and discharges waste molecules by the bloodstream in capillaries.
Our human body has around 100 trillion cells.
Each cell has one's own Life and death.
Our human body is Resonance body of 100 trillion of Life of cells.

1. Approach both palms in front of your chest with keeping the distance between touching and not touching.
Listen to the Life resonance between all cells of both palms. It is so subtle body feeling, but when your daily consciousness calms down enough you can catch it. If you got subtle Qualia of life resonance, start turning in your right thumb and twist to the maximum with sliding your left palm to the back of the hand, forearm, and neck with keeping the Qualia of life resonance. Facilitate the inner breathing of each cell to get new origin.
Say hello to all cells of each part of your body, 'Are you fine today? Do you get enough flesh Oxygen?' 

2. Approach your left palm on the back of your right hand.
Turn out from your right thumb and open each joint of hand, arm, and neck with turning out to the maximum.
Listen to the comfortable feeling when each part of cells gets new origin.  

3. Approach right palm to the right sole.
Listen to the life resonance between palm and sole.
Turn in the first toe; twist foot, leg, pelvis, body, neck, and head to the maximum with sending flesh origin to the cells in each part of the body.

4. Approach right palm to the back of the foot.
Turn out the first toe, foot, leg, open pelvis, rib cage, and neck in the same process.

5. Also, open the other part with a comfortable twist and facilitate inner breathing. 

 

 

Oral cavity breathing

 

Try this breathing after calming down your daily mind by swaying medimotion 
or 
three-dimensional swaying and so on. 

When you become to feel comfortable stream in your whole body, suddenly speed
down the swaying into very slow motion. Release your mouth with half opening like
a silly face, and breathe in very slightly through both of mouth and nose.
Taste a
subtle Qualia of the mucous membrane (=inner skin) of your mouth cavity and nostril.
You can feel subtle strange feeling between comfortable and itchy or between ecstasy
and numbness at your cells of the mucous membrane of your mouth cavity and nostril.
It is so subtle feeling that you need to calm down your consciousness enough to
catch it.
Ask each cell of your mouth, "What are you feeling?"
" What memory do you remember?" 
Through this breathing, you can enter subbody mode which you’re subconscious
and consciousness are balanced equally
Imagine that you are not a human, but a kind of coelenterate like the jellyfish,
creone, and hydra.

 

Creone is one of my teacher of the Transparent body.

 

Become their body, and feel the Qualia which your cells of mouth and body
cavity are feeling.
Enjoy the Qualia as a creature.
If your body wants to sway, follow it. If your subbody wants to become some
creature, follow it and amplify it.
We can travel our subbody world by transforming into another creature. We can
go upstream to another age which our life has experienced a long time ago. 
This is one of the entrances into your proto body.

 

 

The self-curing ability of Life and Whole-body breathing

 

Only humans go to the hospital among all kinds of life.

Other creatures heal on their own.

We forgot to have the self-curing ability as well as the human organism.

Throw off the hospital; try to open the self-curing ability of Life.

 

Fig.1  Various ways of communication between cells

In the mechanism of self-curing, so many wisdom of Life for four billion years
are combined. 100 trillion cells of the human body are resonating with each other.
As shown in Figure 1, they are communicated in a variety of ways. In such a
complex multi-cellular resonance system of the human body, through a variety
of respiratory system, circulatory system, nervous system, and immune system,
etc. it is communicating by the multidimensional resonance. If there is a problem,
that part of the cell signals out the relief. In response to the relief signal, the white
blood cells of the immune system come together and eat bacteria or cancer cells and
cure it. (Figure 2)

 

Fig.2  Immune system

 



                                                                                                                

Fig.3  Growth hormones

 

In response to a relief signal from the cell of the body, growth hormones and
various nutrients are sent.

 

And through the bloodstream growth hormones and nutrients are sent, and it is
repaired while we are asleep. (Fig 3)

However, when the body is elaborate, or a mental dissociation is happening, the
whole-body resonance is blocked at that part. If we are held captive in the anger
or excessive tension, the whole-body mode becomes sympathetic mode, and the
immune system is stopped. The self-cure ability to deal with the problem does not work.

When we are bothered with busy work and problems, we are easier to be invaded
by cancer. It is because of that.

Whole-body breathing and subbody exploring

 

In the subbody resonance school, we start various breathing which is called
conditioning No. 1.

Breathe of Life, Bottom breathing, Subtle breathing, Whole-body breathing and so on.

And, through the various conditioning method, we activate the whole-body resonance.

We try to move each part of the body in various ways, and let the bloodstream
pass through all cells of whole brain and body.

Features of Subbody condition method are that it not only improves the blood
circulation of the body.

By moving to a wide range of body in novel ways, Qualia resonance is also
activated in the brain.

Touching hidden memories, fantasies and dreams which our daily consciousness
has forgotten, move our body in different ways.

The slight discomfort, subtle fear and strange Qualia somehow, we do not know,
we try to touch every day even if we do not want to touch.

If we touch them every day, it becomes increasingly familiar.

Recalling the forgotten memories is to re-edit the hidden structure in the
darkness of the body.

Thereby, condensation of memories and details of the body will be dissolved and
loosen gradually.

New discoveries and new experiences visit us every day.

Continue to activate the multi-dimensional resonance between the brain, mind,
and body always.

Try to continue to dig the darkness of the body always.

It leads us to the essential health.

 

 

 

Encourage the growth of newborn neurons in the hippocampus

 

I will forward one step from the "self-healing power and systemic breathing"
in the preceding paragraph.

The hippocampus is located at the base of the brain. New neurons are born every night.

I was caught up in brain science ten years ago; the cells of the adult brain are
just going to die.

Brain cells are killed easily when they meet a particular stress.

During a time, where there has been the construction of schools in India,
from acute stress I had to play around to see neurosis, the nerve cells in the brain
every day.

And whether it is something that does not play again because it has been killed,
hit by despair.

It was a dogma of brain science, which lasted a hundred years.

However, in the hippocampus of the brain at the end of the 20th century,

the nerve cells are nascent nightly, it has been discovered.

 

Growth of newborn neurons Figures 1, 2, and 3

 

Neurogenesis, it is facilitated by moderate exercise and fresh experience
it has been elucidated.

The hope to live has been sprung.

Okay and I'll be grown at a faster rate than the newborn neurons continue
to die So superimposed research.

The Scientist brain compared two mice raised in a cage,

They found the mice raised in an enriched environment where there were
a maze and many exercise equipment, produced the growth of vigorous
newborn neurons.

Neoplastic cells are old memories and store experiences fresh daily

It's necessary to combine with the cells of the cerebral cortex.

I was raised in a poor environment where I could not obtain these fresh experiences.

Neoplastic cells of the mouse will continue to die as they have no use for them.

Really, is that so?

 I'll move your body to a fresh experience every day, rock out, in outrageously.

The darkness of the body's discovery was accelerated from around that time.

Every day, do not care enough to say, in a cram resonance through the tunnel
you'd never thought

Dig the darkness of the body.

And I danced in the body and met new Qualia.

The Ikioizuke Subbody techniques encouraged me

Brain science was the discovery of a dozen years ago.

I had to dig to various things lurking in the darkness of the body.

Proneness from lazy you do not want to work at all, into the imaginary become
amoeba and protozoa, and bioplast body sag,

貌体 become abnormal personality into hidden Not-me called shadow or Puppet
body, such as being forced to move something,

We’ll go into and listen to proneness also lurking in the darkness of the body
where Subbody techniques were being opened.

Not only in our own Subbody but the Cobody that resonates immediately with
the Subbody of other students, It will be a fresh experience that I never would have
thought.

And to me the old memories and new experiences that tie into the sleeping.
Neurogenesis in the hippocampus was born, but it will increase more and more.
And to be a midwife of Subbody, also means these become midwives of newborn neurons.

So, the students and I let it be while this is a ridiculous experience when there
would also be repugnant to the midwife, it does not mindlessly. Also, hit the
painful edge, or you can overcome it the hard way

And experience all fresh, encouraging the growth of newborn neurons.

She has been activating the mind and body of the human brain where it is not
noticed.

To Explore the body and tone the body is not just a movement of the body.
Activation of multidimensional resonance of the whole brain mind and body,
I can adapt to those filled with creativity.

From the "whole body breathing", Let's go one step further to "breath resonance
multidimensional" Next.

12 Conditioning method 2 Hidden Qualia 
23 October, 2020


Conditioning No. 4 Carrying Density

“Carrying density” is a term of Hijikata.
It was a very important technique for him to transform various being in
the world and the invisible ‘Behind world’. Change the density of the
body flexible; from fluid to vapour and solid. Because only through this
technique we can transform into everything in the Universe. I hope you
practice this every day. In advanced research, you can mix the
‘Carrying Density’ and conditioning No.5, 6, 7, 8 to research deeper
transformation.

We change the density of the body from fluid, to vapor and solid to become various beings in the Universe including imaginary beings.

Animal
Become an animal position
Someone lift up the center of your back toward the sky
Someone pull down it toward the earth
Someone rotate your body in arrow dimensional circle and reverse way
Someone rotate your body in diagonal directions
Your body increases fluidity like various animals and creatures.

Saido (Subtle vibration)
Someone vibrate your body at various parts with a very fine vibration
With this subtle vibration (=Saido) someone changes your body from bottom position via. animal to standing position and opposite.

Vaporizing
Someone shift from Saido to subtle sway and the body transforms to the vaporized body.
Let each cell remember when we were one-celled creatures like bacteria or ameba. We are floating in the ocean and when it became dry, we float in the air as the dust.

Frozen
The temperature change to very cold and whole body shift to the frozen body, solid body, stone body, and mountain body.
Thus, through the resonance with the world, the density of the body is changed.
Through this <Carrying density> technique, you can transform into everything in the Universe and imaginary beings.




Conditioning No. 5
Five hidden Qualia


Opening five hidden Qualia

Try to open the following five Qualia that daily body has forgotten.
Hidden cavities
Hidden joints
Hidden muscles
Hidden fluid
Hidden skins

Conditioning No. 6  Rokudo (Six Realms)

 

Pass through six kinds of Qualia to your body

Life resonates with really different things. It is easy to see that it is resonating with various Qualia of the world such as gravity, air, light, sound, and wind, but not only them.
Life resonates with also dreams that cannot be remembered, distant Life memories, Qualia of dead people, subtle tendencies of unconscious body, etc.
It resonates with Qualia of many invisible different worlds. That is the actual condition of Life. In the Subbody Conditioning No. 6 "Six Realms", through six kinds of movements, we interact with various different worlds, and transform into a body opened to the multi-dimensional world.
First, we pass through all the parts of the body by the following movements; Vibration, Sway, Wave, Shock, Collapse, and Death, one after the other or randomly. The Qualia of the physical movement resonates strongly with the Qualia of some memory and waits for the moment when it becomes one. As a discovery of that day, name it, save it in the darkness of the body. The accumulation of those Qualia eventually leads to the 
<Clouding body technique> in the future.
Always accumulate a large variety of unique Qualia in each layer of the Hidden Skin around the body and put the Qualia on them. Especially when you dance with improvisation, when you create choreography, the unique Qualia that you can cling from them will help your creations.

1. Vibration

Life of cell resonates with the environment by fine vibrations.
Life resonates with subtle vibration of the earth, air, light, sound, and so on.
The outer Qualia that resonate with those physical Qualia and the inner Qualia that are memory, dream, imagination, illusion, etc. are resonating at the same time together every moment.
The subtle vibrations are a manifestation of variegated Life Resonance. There are various vibrations such as trembling of the cold, shivering of scared to invisible things, quivering of will and expectation. While feeling its fineness, find and accumulate unique vibration of that day somewhere in the body.
And, we will organize our bodies that can dance the difference between various kinds of vibrations of Life. We have to build up this on my own.
During this, you try to be Transparency that is not bound by inside and not bound by outside, too.
We become a Transparent body that opens equally by half inside and half outside.

2. Sway

When vibration becomes longer, it will grow to the sway.
Life resonates with everything by pleasant sways.
Taste and enjoy the 
<Sway of Life>.
The sway of solid matter, the sway of body fluid, the sway of respiration,
the sway of memories, dreams that disappear and remembered.
And the sway which evaporates from this world to another world.
Sway is also a passage to another world that is invisible.
The Vaporized body begins with learning a variety of sways.
We will pass a large variety of sway through each part of the body. Every day, continue until new Qualia of sway are found.

3. Wave

Every creature has its own unique rhythm of wave. The undulation of caterpillar, a wave of snake, a wave of the beast, a wave of growing plants, the undulation of the proto ocean, etc.
Hold off the moment when the unexpected appearance of undulation of the protozoic creature in the body or the proto world.
Various kinds of waves are hidden in the darkness of the body.
Follow the various kinds of undulation and find the best resonance pattern of the Life of that day and stamp it on your body.

4. Shock 

Cell's Life memorizes various shocks that Life has received during the 4 billion years.
Originally the Life was very fine, so we received it as a huge shock with just a small stimulus. From small stimuli such as raindrops, dust, insects, to waves, winds, stones, earthquakes, thunder, fire, battles, and so on. Life has been moved by those.
Many of the signals from different worlds surrounding Life come as shocks. Life has experienced all of those shocks and has invented a technique to survive with overcoming them.
The Qualia of shock leads to Qualia of world transformation for Life. Exploring Qualia of world change and self-transformation such as contraction of the uterus at birth, the sudden disappearance of guardian, natural disaster, etc. becomes one.

5. Collapse

If a strong shock or stimulation/pressure continues, part of the body breaks and loses resilience. Even if you become a crippled distressed body, life will still survive. In restricted movement, invent the way to survive. Life has this infinite inventive power. Becoming a body crushed to the extreme of inconvenience. From there, we will see what kind of movement is invented. And it also resonates with the suffering of the deceased brothers who are still alive.
Weakened body or the disabled body is the foundation of 
<Flower of Kan (=Disability)> which is deep Life Resonance beauty.

 

6. Death 

Death is the most familiar Qualia for Life. We are always swaying between death and Life constantly comes back from the edge of death. And, one day, I got to go.

Look at this world from the world of death!
It is the position of Butoh dancers that is the Shisha or dead body standing desperately.
It is felt that this world is full of Life Resonance and full of Qualia. We were originally on the side of death.
It is an existence borrowing a Life for less than a hundred years from the eternal Life of 4 billion years. Before we die, return the whole of your creation to Life. I can laugh and die if I can do it. That is the perfection of Jo-ha-Kyu of Life.

12 Conditioning method 1
19 October, 2020


Conditioning No.0 Breathing


Breath of Life

We have two kinds of breathing. One is the normal lung breathing, and another is cellular breathing. We can call them outer breathing and inner breathing too.

We have a hundred trillion cells in an adult body. When those cells get oxygen, they enjoy, get activated and spread. The whole-body size becomes a little larger with very slow speed. We call this the “Breath of Life.”

From the fetus age, we continue this Breath of Life because in the womb there is no oxygen gas. The fetus breathing was also the Breath of Life.

To be with Life all the time

When you get the Breath of Life, you can be on the way to become Life. Listen to Life all the time, Life is resonating not only with Oxygen but with everything in the world.

Towards the Butoh of Life

This is useful for investigating what is "the Butoh of Life" which Hijikata longed for in his later years and could not complete, because of his death.

An unknown virgin frontier where nobody has stepped is waiting for you, right in front of you.

Fetus breathing

 

We have two kinds of breathing. One is the outer breathing through the lungs; another is the inner breathing by each cell. Always feel this double process of breathing and remember what breathing you did when you were a fetus.

There you were, full of all the water of the womb in your mouth, nose, and lung. We could not do lung breathing. Oxygen was sent from your mother's heart into your body. The fetus did only inner breathing at each cell.


Try to do fetus breathing

You will notice that it is the same as "The Breath of Life”. It has continued from the fetus’s age. Oh! the not the only fetus when we are one-celled creature, but we have also continued our cell breathing.

The breath of Life, the breath of the fetus, and cellular breathing are the same. Become the cell, and resonate with everything. Life is resonating with everything in multiple-dimensions. With air, gravity, light, sound, memories, dreams, and so on. Cellular breathing is one of them.

We continue to investigate Life. It is the deepest mystery for us.

Let's look up at the sky. Life is always resonating with the world. 
17 October, 2020


Let's overcome the negative influence of coronavirus

Listen carefully to Life

What is the transparency that we aim for?  It is unconstrained by anything and to be the heavenly condition as it was born. Listen to your Life. What is the resonance of Life? Let's ask Life together now.
Notice that the most dangerous influence by the coronavirus. It is the tendency to restrain Life from its raw curiosity and resonativity. Because of the social distancing and economic pressures caused by the coronavirus over the last six months we have been used to reducing activity. It is a global trend. The stagnation of the collaborative mind = resonativity is the most terrible erosion of the coronavirus. Isn't your Life lost the curiosity and resonant nature to react and rejoice like a baby to the interesting things in your life? 
If this is the case, then you need to shake it off, inspire your own Life, and jump into the event for your rebirth. This jump is the path to your own recovery of Life.
Today at 3:00 pm, Yui, a Japanese art therapist, will hold an art therapy session. Monday at 10:00 a.m. our regular butoh course will begin. When you jump into this course, your natural Life will begin to be reborn. And start a new training as the resonant creators who can support each other and overcome the problems together.
The world doesn't need solitary practitioners who have lost the Life Resonance.
In my 72 years of life, I have been isolated many times, regained resonance, isolated again, set back from interact with others, and overcame the resonance of Life.
The key to overcoming this depends on how far we are able to transparently listen to Life. 
Now it is the time to be ONE LIFE for us.

Warm Resonance

How to open to the creativity | Rhizome Lee 
11 October, 2020


Creativity of Life

What is creativity?

Our quest has finally come to a 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 (resonance ability).
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 <Resonant 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 multi-dimensional resonance realm. 

How can we open infinite creativity

 There is a traditional practice method in Japan.

It is just to follow the form that the master made.

Zeami of Noh master learned the form that his father Kannami made.

Hijikata’s dancers have practiced the form that Hijikata made for a long time. It was believed that it is the only certain way to get it.

However, I have researched why only Hijikata could open such incredible creativity.

I know that Hijikata continued to dig his darkness of the body.

Hijikata wrote, 

“I’m peeling the darkness of my body.”

 When we eat a bird, we peel off its wings and peels off the meat. Peel the flesh clinging to the bones of the fish and eat it.

Hijikata continued to dig the darkness of his body as if peeling and eat it for his whole life. And created a lot of creation. That's is the secret!.

If we continue to do the same, we should be able to open up the creativity sleeping in the darkness of the body.

I have continued to sink into the darkness of the body. and I got when we could stop daily consciousness, in the subconscious state we can meet so rich Qualia in the darkness of the body. I noticed that these Qualia should be the infinite creativity of Life.

If we could share this method, anybody become able to open one’ potential creativity as same as Hijikata.

I have started to share the method in Himalaya twenty year ago. It is the origin of Subbody method.

Medimotion

The backbone of the subbody method is in the medimotion.
Medimotion is meditation while moving. 
Leave your body to be moved slowly by someone, and at the same time shift to a transparent subconscious state 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 multi-dimensional 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.

Freely switch between non-dual
Qualia and each channel Qualia
06 October, 2020


Freely switch between non-dual
Qualia and each channel Qualia

Dancing between Non-dual and dual Qualia

See the fig.2. The most of Qualia, maybe over 99.9999% Qaulia are non-dual and Rhizome without any orders and hierarchy. They are hidden in our hundred trrrilion cell’s Life memories. Out brain can’t recognize it.

But through medimotion, our body’s cells become able to remind it, and appear at some channels Qaulia; sometimes bodily sensation, spontaneous movement, visual fantasy, audio body sound, emotion, human relationship, world-self-image and Qualia thinking and so on.

Hunt the moment and follow it by your whole body=mind=brain, it become your subbody-cobody.

We are waiting for people who want to develop this Life Resonance Art method into, Art therapy, Dance therapy, Music therapy and so on.

This is the way everyone can become a unique artist in the world.

01 October, 2020


Yamazaki will reborn after 53 years!

On October 8, 1967, 53 years ago, a high school alumni Hiroaki Yamazaki died on the Haneda Bentenbashi during the anti-war Vietnam battle. I heard that a preview of the movie "After You Died" by the director Daishima, who has shot the movie about Yamazaki, will be held. "Yamazaki, come back!" Was sealed at the request of Director Shiroshima, who visited Himalayan last spring. Danced. The movie is a compilation of Yamazaki's background and the present of his friends around Yamazaki at that time. In the poster above, I use the old name Ryuji Oka. Please have a look if you have a chance. The procedure for conducting the preview is as follows.

Preview of the movie of "After you die"

The dates and venues for the Tokyo and Kansai meetings in the fall of 2020 have been decided.The main event of this east and west will be the screening of the feature film "After You Died" directed by Haruhiko Daishima."After you die" is composed of two parts, upper and lower. Above, Hiroaki Yamazaki, who was born in 1948, is depicted growing up, his short life until he entered the core group and struggled against Vietnam and fell in Haneda / Bentenbashi. Below, you can see how the high school / university classmates / seniors lived after Yamazaki's death, carrying Yamazaki's death on his back. 14 people will appear, and the progress of the 10/8 Hiroaki Yamazaki project will be recorded.

What is subbody method | Rhizome Lee 
29 September, 2020

2. Subbody=cobody

 


 

What is Subbody=Cobody?

 Subbody

 In the realm of the subconscious, it is non-dual, the subconscious

and the body are not separated clearly like the daily world. They are resonating without any differentiation between the self and others. Everything is one. Subconscious and body are moving together as one.

That’s why we named it the “Subbody”.

Through the basic conditioning like medimotion (moving meditation),  we can transform from daily conscious mode to subbody mode to

stop thinking and judgment. Subbody is a tool or a vehicle to explore the darkness of the body where the Ego, Self, and Life are streaming beyond the borders of consciousness and subconsciousness.

In the subbody method, we don't use the word unconsciousness, because, for the daily body, the consciousness and unconsciousness are divided in a dualistic manner. But, when we can become a subbody, we can enter the subconscious world, and we can resonate with all the Qualia in that world.

(Qualia are everything that Life of cell resonate with. Qualia of the Gravity, Sunshine, weather, air, Oxygen, smell, sound and so on. And not only physical present Qulia, but also Life is resonating with the inner memorial Qualia that is reserved in the cell as the Life memories. See the 2nd chapter for the details) 

It is not UN-consciousness, it is just SUB-conscious behind our consciousness.

We can research that world through becoming a subbody with the whole body, brain, and mind.

 Cobody

 Life is always resonating with everything in the subconscious realm. So, the subbody is always resonating with everything. Resonating subbody was called cobody. At the beginning of the Subbody history, we divided that subbody is individual subbody and cobody is group subbody, but now we abandon that dualistic division. Because in the subconscious realm the border between self and others disappears.

 

Subbody=Cobody 

Then now we understand as “Subbody is cobody, cobody is subbody” as oneness. They can resonate freely, connect freely and separate freely as the Rhizome. (See the chapter Rhizome).

Listen to the subtle resonance of Life and taste the infinite variations of resonance. We are bound by very poor patterns. Especially the resonance pattern of Ego and Ego such as conflict, struggle, fight, judgment, denial, ignorance, dissociation, pride, envy, looking down and so on. We need to learn the infinite rich resonance patterns of Life except those of the Ego’s familiar patterns. This is the most important thing for the growth of Human toward Life.

Listen to Qualia | Life Resonance Butoh | Rhizome Lee 
25 September, 2020

2. <Qualia share>

 

Qualia and <Dreaming Share>

We begin by listening to the darkness of the body every day.
What are we listening to in the darkness of the body?
It is a transforming flow of Qualia. When we focus on listening to the darkness of the body, we feel something which we do not understand well.
It is an ambiguous feeling that is constantly changing, neither feeling nor delusion and imagination can be distinguished. First of all, Qualia is perceived as non-dual Qualia which is not able to distinguish.
It changes instantly and flows. When we change the posture or move the body, the Qualia flow changes.
Qualia are very subtle and changing every millisecond. We can follow the Qualia stream with the whole body comfortably. We give our body to follow the Qualia. The Qualia flow and body start moving together. That is a subbody.
When we stop thinking through a medimotion conditioning that leaves us in comfortable swaying, we become a subconscious body mode. We call it "subbody".
The distinction between the body and mind of the daily body disappeared. 
The physical movement of the body and the Qualia flow are merged and unified.
We follow the spontaneous subbody movement that comes out naturally. It is accompanied by the feeling that is being moved by something. It differs somewhat from feeling that you are moving your body with your own will. Or maybe the movements are emerging as the life resonates with the world.
It is somewhat different from the conscious movement, but in the subconscious mode, we cannot discriminate well because of the distinguishing consciousness of daily body ceases.
The subbody exists in a country of non-dual and multidimensional Life Resonance which is different from the everyday world.
Also, if we try to look back on what happens to the body of the subbody state with an analytical language consciousness after dancing, we cannot grasp non-dual and multidimensional Life resonance well in dual languages. The language is constrained by the dualism of subject-predicate unfortunately, and it is not quite suitable to capture the non-dual realm. Even if we try to forcefully write it, it will completely change to another thing. I was standing in front of this hard rock for a long time.

 

Discovery of <Qualia language>


However last year, it was discovered that there is an intermediate <Qualia language> region between non-dual Qualia flow and dualistic language. Then, using the <Qualia language> and the movement of the body, we found that we can co-create the subbody-cobody world of each person.
The dualistic language is based on the non-dual Qualia flow on its unconscious basis.
The Qualia flow itself continues flowing in our subconscious body, and a part of Qualia flow is associated with <label language> at the Broca field and the Wernicke field in the left brain of the human being.
A label language called "cow", "tree", "arm" etc. are connected to the most basic Qualia mass such as cow, tree, and arm.
And even in the subbody mode, we can perform primitive <Qualia thinking> by connecting these label languages in parallel.

"Cows - Field - Clouds - Flowers - Wolves - Running Cows - Chasing Wolves"

<Qualia thinking> is performed by connecting <label language> as above. It is simply connected to each Qualia by "and" according to the non-dual Qualia flow.

A and B and C and D and E.....

It's enough for subbody-cobody to resonate by body movement.
Perhaps in the lower part of daily thinking or in a dream, non-dual Qualia flow sometimes related to the <Qualia thinking> using these primitive <label language> so that it is being developed such as scene changes and so on.
At the Subbody Resonance Butoh School these past few years, we have accumulated experiments of various <Dreaming Share> using these label language and the movement of the body.

"Desert - Herd - No Water - Search - Turtle - Sediment - Underground -"
If everyone is in the subbody-cobody mode, we can co-create such tremendous illogical development as above without resistance.
This takes a big step from the conventional subbody method.
Previous periods when this <Qualia thinking> and <label language> were not discovered, we were wandering in the dark without any map, in what way we can co-create the cobody world. We were often trapped by the tree-like hierarchical order which is unnecessary in this world that one person serves as a choreographer and directs other's movement. We bumped into the limits of this ego traps over and over again.


Revolution of <Qualia share>

<Dreaming share> was discovered as breaking through the limit from that struggle.
Many variations have been produced so far.

Now we call it generally <Qualia Share>.

We can develop it because any Qualia is able to share by Subbody=cobody.

<Behind World Share>
<World Transformation Share>
<Cobody Share>
<Prototype share>
<Rhizoming Share>

<Deterritorialization share>

In fact, it is known that this can be expanded indefinitely.
Since it is only necessary to share the contents of each explorer with the Qualia language and movement, it is possible to convert all the contents of the previous exploration into the <Qualia share>.
We continue to explore vigorously the experiment of <Qualia Share> by Qualia thinking and movement. It will be led transparently to the method of how can we change the world. 
Because here are the buds of hope of breaking the tree hierarchical order which humankind was bound for a long time and opening up the future of Rhizome are buried.

Travel map of the Darkness of the body
 
What kind of qualia should we listen to in the journey of the darkness of the body? This chapter will guide you through three particularly important three points. All of these are almost inaudible under normal language consciousness, so listen carefully while continuing the medimotion enough.
21 September, 2020


Chapter 3

Listening

 

1. Very Subtle Qualia

 Listening to subtle Qualia of the darkness of the body

 I often use the word “Listening”.

What is Listening?

What do we listen to?

When we listen to the body, at first we can sense only ambiguous something that is not able to recognize clearly Is this sensation? Or the imagination? Or a dream? Illusion? memory?

We cannot distinguish at all.

It is Non-dual Qualia.

Qualia is everything that cell’s Life resonates with. Life resonates with Qualia of Gravity, Sunshine, Air, temperature, moisture, sound, smell…

Life is always resonating with these physical Qualia of environment. And not only those present physical Qualia but also inner memory Qualia of those that are reserved as the Life memory during the four billion years Life history.

Both are always resonating double. We call the former “Outer Qualia” the latter “Inner Qualia”.

We listen to the double resonance of both though we cannot distinguish as well.

But, during the listening, the non-dual Qualia shift to a certain channel Qualia; bodily sensation, movement, visual, audio, emotion, human relationship, world=self-image, and thinking channels so that we can catch it clearly. We follow it by the whole body-mind until it becomes a certain subbody movement.

When we co-research it with some friends, sometimes a friend’s movement affects you, or your movement becomes other’s movement.

Listen to the process, taste the resonance deeply. It is proof that the border between self and others disappears.

Listen to your own Qualia and other’s Qualia as well.

 

Listen to inside 50% and outside 50%. This is Transparent listening.

You will meet not only your friends but also meet the world Qualia.

In the world Qualia, it includes not only the physical world but also the invisible world Qualia that Hijikata called it “Behind world”.

Those are the Qualia that we listen to.

 

2. Non-dual=Multidimantional Qualia

 

 

 What is Non-dual?

 I use often “Non-dual”, “Qualia is resonating in Non-dual and Multi-dimensional realm”.  Qualia are generated through the Life resonance that each cells Life resonates with various environments and change of own bodily conditions. Even one-celled creature like bacteria or ameba is resonating with infinite multi-dimensional Qualia and interlaced complicatedly. The adult human body has 100 trillion cells. Each cell’s Life is resonating through infinite Qualia with the environment always, resonating with the gravity, sunshine, air, Oxygen, temperature, moisture, sound and not only those physical present Qualia but also all of those inner memories which are reserved in the cell as the Life memories. Those Qualia are resonating with multi-layered, interlaced, and intricately intertwined beyond time and space. It is not possible to discriminate separately by the dualistic consciousness. When we listen to the darkness of the body at first we can’t recognize whether it is the sensation, imagination, dream, illusion. That’s why we call it “Non-dual”. Originally this word is from old oriental meditator who have continued to listen to the darkness of the body. Also, they have met with this Non-dual Qualia, and became familiar with them.

Adding this, Qualia is interlacing and transforming at each moment. We feel that diverse Qualia are interchanging momentary. Because Qualia are generated through the Life resonance. Life can catch the change of the cell’s body condition with the subtle change of the resonance pattern of the String. (See chapter 1 Mystery of Life, Qualia, and Resonance). Subbody Resonance Butoh is to listen to these very subtle Qualia that is interlacing and changing momentarily and dance the precise transformation of Life. That’s why we need to stop language thinking and continue to listen to the infinite silence for 24-hour. Only through continuing this we can be aware of that Life is invaded and disturbed by how much elements on the earth. Then we can live as Life with opening infinite creativity, originality, and resonativity (resonance ability).

 

3. Qualia that Life can’t resonate well


Listening to the Qualia that your Life could not resonate well with

 Especially important Qualia to listen to is unknown uncomfortable Qualia that your Life cannot resonate well. We forget those immediately but the body can remember it.  Listen to them carefully and patiently. They are the special rich source of creation. Hijikata had continued to collect them throughout his life. It is called Kan (disabled) Qualia. (See “Flower of Kan” in the chapter 9 Butoh-fu)

 

Listening to the Qualia that have never repeated

 Focus on the very short-term Qualia that seems to appear for milliseconds and immediately disappear.

Special Qualia that would be a very important source of creation is hidden in the depth of the darkness of the body with multiple entanglements. It is hard to appear.

Those very rare Qualia would be the precious source of novel creation.

Research the very rare Qualia that have never repeated.

Our ego repeats positive Qualia every moment; “I’m OK”, “I’m strong”, “I’m polite”, “I’m good” and so on. Our daily mind is full of those repeated Qualia that support your self-identity or ego. In those repeated Qualia there is no space that new Qualia meet other novel Qualia. No resonant emergency happens.

On the contrary, listen to the very rare Qualia that you will meet for the first time. They have so rich possibility to meet another Qualia and new Qualia will be born. Those rare and new-born Qualia are the most important source of your creation.

 

Dream of not going well

I dreamed a series of 'not going well' dream several times these days. At first, Hijikata Tatsumi joined in my class and he tries something but it's not going well. So, something is wrong, but I did not understand what this dream means. Next night also Hijikata appeared again, and he tried to make a sequence of movement by following my Jo-Ha-Kyu method, but then also it is not going well. I felt a very uncomfortable feeling. But I know that this kind of uncomfortable feeling is always to tell me some important thing, and so I keep this feeling and tried to listen to it.

Three days ago, also I dreamt that a young female student tried to do something it seemed almost OK, but at the last moment, it was not going well. She asked me "What is wrong? What do you feel when something is not going well for you?"

I was moved by this question. Because this feeling is so familiar to me. At the last moment of this process, I encountered the feeling that some delicate thing is wrong, and I cannot succeed. It told me the goal is very close. If you find only a small thing, it guides you to the goal. But this feeling is so uncomfortable. I understand that she feels the same feeling in front of goal with real Qualia.

Last night, I dreamed the same series of a dream. In this time, a small child who is my staff Ramesh's son Ravi tried something in my class but something disturbs him. I felt the same uncomfortable feeling like the same with Ravi in my chest very strongly. Then I noticed that I am resonating with Ravi, and I feel the same feeling like him.

I remembered that I felt the same uncomfortable feeling when something is 'not going well'. These series of dreams told me that I felt the real Qualia of resonance, though I could not notice until today.

Meditation and Medimotion


 Thinking mode of brain

 

One more recent discovery in brain science is “Default mode”. Brain scientist found when our consciousness has a rest, the brain activity doesn’t rest, on the contrary, the bloodstream in the brain is more than the thinking mode. The brain is active in “Mind Wandering”. They called this “Default mode”

 

Default Mind Wandering mode (Medimotion mode)

 

The traditional meditation technique is sometimes to keep this “Mind Wandering” mode to be aware of various things. Because in this mode various parts of the brain become active and various Qualia can encounter each other and generate new Qualia automatically. Recent “Mindfulness method” maybe in this mode. In the traditional meditation technique, sometimes they focus on one image, for example, “Buddha”, “God”, Gull” and so on. In this case, brain mode becomes closer to thinking mode.

Observe the above figure carefully, it is activated except for the movement field. In the movement field, there is no activity. Because they block body movement at all. The Qualia stream can’t meet movement Qualia at all.

Medimotion mode

 

What happens in the Medimotion?

Medimotion is moving meditation. Then including the movement field, all parts of the brain become active and all kinds of Qualia can encounter freely beyond any borders.

This state happens only in the Medimotion mode, the reason why the creativity of Life becomes maximum in the Medimotion.

 

By losing what, do Qualia become information?

 

The difference between Qualia and Information

The relationship between Qualia and Information has been a mystery

that cannot be solved well for a long time. But, it began to be solved out little by little. When Qualia are converted to information, what do they lose? When this question came up, a transparent brightness was seen for the first time. By losing what, do Qualia become information? It's Life Resonance! Qualia are generated as long as Life resonates with something. When Qualia are converted to information, they leave from the field of Life Resonance which Qualia are generated. They are converted to things that are information. Information of the image, of the sound and of the language, they can be translated into binary machine language consisting of 0 and 1. At that time, by losing the Life Resonance, Qualia is converted into Information. Only Life can resonate with Qualia. The machine never resonates with Qualia. The machine can treat only things like information. From here, it is possible to go confront the deep mystery between Qualia and Information. I was able to find with difficulty such a point finally. Although I cannot drink liquor anymore, Let the imaginary glass empty tonight. I could come to this place by researching "Sick Dancing Princess" of Tatsumi Hijikata which is full of Life Resonance. Not by any information, but by Qualia and Life Resonance, the Butoh of Life will be created

Dear all friends

Thank you for your warm support.
The surgery of colorectal cancer was succesfull, but I have to continue chemotherapy, because cancer had metastasized to the lymph nodes already.
I need still your support to continue the chemotherapy against it.
Now I am fine and writing the next book "Life Resonance Philosophy" which integrates all my researchs and findings as Qualia revolution, Rhizome revolution, Resonance revolution, Life revolution and so on.
I can die peacefully after writnig this book at any time. I just need for two more years to complete it.

Thank you!
Warm resonance!

Conditioning No. 5  

Five hidden Qualia


Opening five hidden Qualia 


Try to open the following five Qualia that daily body has forgotten.
Hidden cavities
Hidden joints
Hidden muscles
Hidden fluid
Hidden skins


 

 

Hidden cavities

 

Rhizoming in hidden cavities
We have so many hidden cavities in our body. The deeper level of bodily sensations and forgotten memories are connected to these hidden cavities.
The daily body has forgotten them at all. But through the medimotion cells can remember them. When we use them flexibly, we get so wide possibility to transform various kinds of creature and beings including Hidden personalities.
After the practice of 'Upstream Life medimotion', 'Three-dimensional body cavity' and 'Three-dimensional oral cavities', proceed to follow the transforming method.

1. Transform from various body cavities
With following the subtle signal of body image from your life, change the shape of the body cavity in various dimensions.
Ask to your life 'What creature' body image do you remember today?' 
If you get a subtle melting tendency of your life, follow it and transform your own ameba or another creature.
If your subbody wants to flow, follow the sub-signal, you can transform jellyfish or sea anemone and so on.
Our life had spent time in the water for so long time, then our subbody can remember the Qualia of inner water life.
With using various kinds of breathing, change the shape of your body cavity, in various rhythm, speed, and directions.

2. Transform from oral and nose cavity
Also transform from the oral cavity, nose cavity, with various breathing way, you can get so fresh body sensation and emotion, world image stream and so on.

3. Transform from eye cavity
Change your eye with following your life memories, what have you seen in the deep sea, underground, and complete darkness without eyes.

 

 

4. Transform with breathing and audio channel
When you follow the spontaneous body sounds with various breathing ways, open resonance with the hidden cavities above.

We have many sinuses--cavities within the skull bones surrounding the nasal passage--warm and moisten the air prior to it entering the delicate lung tissue. When the body sound resonates with these cavities, it becomes Hoomee sound of Mongolian and Tuvin people. They taste the sounds like a voice of Heaven. You can open another dimension through the audio channel.

5. Emotional rhizoming
When you follow the spontaneous body sound stream, also your emotion associates and gives sub-signal, follow the subtle emotional stream. Unfold the hidden emotions which are folded in your darkness of body for a long time.

6. Relational rhizoming
our subbodies are always streaming with changing channels, when you get a subtle signal of the human relational channel, follow them and enter another relationship. Not an only human relationship, but also open relational ship with some strange imaginary creatures. Enjoy

 playing with them. 

 

7. World image=self-image rhizoming
Final channel is the world=self-image channel.
When you catch a subtle signal of a shift in the world image, follow it and open another world image.
Our life has experienced so many circumstances and environmental changes: ice ages, storms, earthquakes, volcanoes, and so on. 

Enjoy travel in your proto creature's world. Through travel, you became familiar with your various life memories. Develop them until it grows up to your own proto-body which is one of your ten bodies of subbody Butoh.



Hidden joints

 

Metamorphose from a hidden joint
our daily bodies have forgotten so many functions.
The tail is no longer used for the devolution, but we have still the nerve around the tail.
When we imagine the image of the tail in a movement it helps us so much.
sternoclavicular joints (the joint between chest bone and color bone), and sacroiliac joints (sacrum and pelvis) are also forgotten joints.
Try to move these hidden joints very slowly into three-dimensional directions and taste the Qualia. 
If you feel deep resonance at a movement, it is an entrance to your hidden bodies.

 

Chest Joint (Sternoclavicular joint)

 

Move both collarbones forward. The heart fades just a little. Move them even forward, the heart is closed and has been excruciating.
The constellation of the skeleton is changing, introverted self comes out.
Close the chest in addition. We can meet the stony-self who closed to the outside world.
Move both color bones backward. The extroverted character is coming out.
Move them upward. We can remember when we fail something, we shrug one's shoulder.
Move more and our neck disappear like a tortoise shrunken his head.
Move both collarbones down to the bottom. You become a long neck. Move neck with becoming birds and horses.
Move both color bones breading out to the clavicle. 
The sternoclavicular joint is spreading like a free bird chest.
Move both collarbones in a narrow. The sternoclavicular joint is fixed.
Move more, and then chest closed like a fish and snake which doesn't have a chest.
Swim just like a fish with only spine work.

 

 

Sacrum joint (Sacroiliac joint)

Move both pelvises forward. Close to the pelvis and chest. The basic constellation of skeleton changes.
You may metamorphose as a prudent character like an armadillo.
Move both pelvises backward. The sternoclavicular joint also spread to a diplomatic, an arrogant personality comes out.
Move the top of both pelvises closer. The knee becomes X leg, Chest also closed, Twist the arm to the limit. You meet a strange character who was folded in the darkness of the body.
Move the bottom of pelvis closer. At the top of the pelvis is spread to a pregnant mother's position, you can experience the body feeling of pregnancy. Walk with taking care of the baby. You can know what the mother is a little something. Separate both pelvises away from the sacrum. When the distance between the pelvises become maximum, your pelvis becomes the delivery position.
Remember the experience which everybody has been experienced at once.
Move both pelvises close to the sacrum. The pelvis is fixed. 
And even closer to the pelvis, your body becomes a snake or fish.
Swim with using the only spine just like a snake and fish swimming.

 

 

Hidden joints of the hands and feet

 

similarly, move the hidden joints of the hands and feet slowly with a three-dimensional direction.
Center/edge change: Move from the center of the body (Sternoclavicular, sacroiliac), and from the edge of the body; from the tip of a finger, toe. Switch from center to edge, and reverse.
Bottom/top change: Wave coming up from the bottom of the body like a plant, and move from the top of the head like an animal. Switch from bottom wave to top wave, top wave to bottom wave.

Jaw joint and hidden eye movement
Move jaw joint three-dimensional directions, and move eyes in an oblique direction.

You can meet various hidden characters depending on the degree

of twisting. Jocular self, full of ideas, cunning personality, curious character, and so on. When you meet a stranger, slowly become

a friend.

 

 

Hidden muscles

 

To open anatomical transparent eyes for the darkness of the body help us to transform the weakened body.
Our daily bodies are bound by rough and large movement by using

big surface muscles. Also, normal dance, sports are bound by the same rough and large movements.
But we have deep layer muscles under these surface large muscles.
They are not straight but spiral and connect bones beyond plural joints. They are forgotten by the daily body and dissociated into the unconscious realm. I call it "Hidden muscle".
We need to inhibit the gross daily body which is bound by only large surface muscles at first.
Then we can listen to the subtle signal by transparent eye for subbody which is connected to hidden muscle and hidden Qualia. To open other dimensions which do not exist in the daily world with using hidden muscles and hidden Qualia is one of the essences of Butoh technique.  

Hidden muscles in spine and body
When we remove large surface muscles like a large back muscle, chest muscles, and stomach muscles, the longest straight spine muscle appears (fig.1).

 

Fig. 1  Middle layer muscle of the back

This muscle is used to keep the body straight with using bottom muscles together.
When we change the degree of contraction of then, we can control the flexibility of the body. 
For the meditation and Zen sitting, we control them in a medium degree of contraction. 
For transforming stone or puppet, we contract them in maximum degree.
When we release them in each degree, we can transform from solid body to liquid body and vaporized body according to the degree.
When we remove the longest spine muscle, we can find tiny muscles which connect each spine in different dimensions (fig2).

Fig. 2  deep layer muscle of the back

We use these hidden muscles to transform the weakened body.
The skull and each neck spine bones, collar bones, shoulder blades are connected by many tiny hidden muscles in different directions; straight, diagonal and spiral (fig3).

Fig. 3  between skull and neck

The spine and pelvis and leg bones are connected by psoas major which is the biggest hidden muscle. (Fig 4)


Fig. 4  Psoas major

normally we use poses to bend the body and to raise leg forward.
We inhabit these big movements of poses; we just contract poses a little for shortening the leg and subtle swaying.

Hidden muscles of legs and arms 

Most of the hidden muscles run trans plural joints and connects bones apart spirally.

When we stop surface muscles and use the hidden muscles, a strange movement which does not exist in the daily human world appears.

Not made by the head, but following subbodies which live in the darkness of body.

Subbodies have their own Qualia, image, timing, rhythm, we just follow them, and we can sink down another dimension.

 

  

Fig. 5  lower leg

Fig. 6  forearm

The daily body can control only large and rough muscle; big hip muscle, long thigh muscle, hamstrings, and so on.
We need them for daily movement and sports, all kinds of dance, but for weakened Butoh, we start to inhibit the rough and large movements, then we can meet subtly hidden Qualia which are folded in the hidden muscles.
When we control them in contraction and release independently, we can transform any kinds of hidden bodies; not-me body, proto bodies, puppet body, humanoid body and weakened body which is swaying between death and Life.

Long process to become Butoh body
To transform the weakened body, we need both of long training to listen to the subtle Qualia of the darkness of body, and to be able to control subtle swaying of each part of the body in different dimensions by using hidden muscles.
It takes a long time.
Tatsumi Hijikata also needed for five years after the legendary aggressive performance of "Nikutai no hanran" (The rebellion of the body, 1968, Japan), to transform the weakened body which dies down all gross movement of dance he learned and completed the weakened body Butoh.
Start from training for controlling each hidden muscle independently.

Next stage is the trans joints movements with becoming another being in different dimensions.
Always aware of subtly hidden Qualia which are folded in hidden muscles, hidden joints, hidden cavities, and hidden skins by opening a transparent mind, then you can transform another being which lives in different dimensions.

When hidden Qualia which are folded in your hidden part of the body and subtle hidden movement become oneness, the weakened body Butoh begins from there.
Take off all conditions as a human.

Hidden fluid

 

Proto Ocean for Life

Our human body has sixty trillion cells. Each cell has each independent life.
How do trillions of cells resonate and become one human life?
They have so many kinds of resonance patterns which life has invented in four billion years after the birth of origin life.
But they need definitely water environment for resonance because the important ways of resonance were invented in the ocean. 
Still, now, our life needs the same environment as the proto ocean in our body for communication. 
The origin of life was born in the ocean. They need the same environment for reproduction.
Then for the cell fusion of sperm and ovum needs the environment of fluid as the vagina and womb same as the proto ocean.
Glia neuron network in the brain needs also proto ocean environment as the cerebrospinal fluid.
Six trillion cells need Proto Ocean for resonance, it is the body fluid. 
But the consciousness doesn't take care of it, and then we call it "Hidden fluid".

Listening in the hidden fluid
when we calm down the consciousness, we can listen to the subtle changes in the condition of body fluid. Around 60-70% of our body is made of water.
There are four basic ways of communication among cells; 1. Contact-dependent, 2. Paracrine, 3. Synaptic, 4. Endocrine. All of them need body fluid as a medium.
Body fluid is the medium for cells resonance with the various system of the body.
The endocrine system uses blood and lymph fluid for communication of various hormones. 
Also, the immune system needs the body fluid for the activity of macrophage, T-cell, B-cell, and NK (=Natural killer) cell. They are moving beyond the blood, lymph and body cells.
Neurons are connected by the synapse with other neurons. At the synapse, body fluid is necessary as a medium for the neurotransmitter. Glia cells and neuron cells communicate at the synapse with using various transmitters.
To listen to the hidden fluid is to listen to the life resonance among sixty trillions cells of the body.
When the conditions of body fluid change, we receive Qualia as emotion and desire.
If water decrease in the blood, we feel thirsty. If sugar decrease, we feel hungry.
If sexual hormone increases, we feel sexual desire. If blood pressure increases, we feel uncomfortable, and so on.

Become fluid body
Sway with the ocean. There is no border between inside and outside. Just resonate with everything. 

Transform from hidden fluid
when we can change the Qualia of body fluid, we can transform our bodies into various conditions, and various being; frozen, liquid, vaporized, stone, and various creatures. 
Invent your own ways of transformation from the hidden fluid. 

Keep on listening to the subtle change of hidden fluid. 
It means to listen in the conditions of life. 
Keep on listening in the subtle resonance of life all day long. 
It is the way to be with life.

Meditation and Medimotion


 Thinking mode of brain

 

One more recent discovery in brain science is “Default mode”. Brain scientist found when our consciousness has a rest, the brain activity doesn’t rest, on the contrary, the bloodstream in the brain is more than the thinking mode. The brain is active in “Mind Wandering”. They called this “Default mode”

 

Default Mind Wandering mode (Medimotion mode)

 

The traditional meditation technique is sometimes to keep this “Mind Wandering” mode to be aware of various things. Because in this mode various parts of the brain become active and various Qualia can encounter each other and generate new Qualia automatically. Recent “Mindfulness method” maybe in this mode. In the traditional meditation technique, sometimes they focus on one image, for example, “Buddha”, “God”, Gull” and so on. In this case, brain mode becomes closer to thinking mode.

Observe the above figure carefully, it is activated except for the movement field. In the movement field, there is no activity. Because they block body movement at all. The Qualia stream can’t meet movement Qualia at all.

Medimotion mode

 

What happens in the Medimotion?

Medimotion is moving meditation. Then including the movement field, all parts of the brain become active and all kinds of Qualia can encounter freely beyond any borders.

This state happens only in the Medimotion mode, the reason why the creativity of Life becomes maximum in the Medimotion.

 

By losing what, do Qualia become information?

 

The difference between Qualia and Information

The relationship between Qualia and Information has been a mystery

that cannot be solved well for a long time. But, it began to be solved out little by little. When Qualia are converted to information, what do they lose? When this question came up, a transparent brightness was seen for the first time. By losing what, do Qualia become information? It's Life Resonance! Qualia are generated as long as Life resonates with something. When Qualia are converted to information, they leave from the field of Life Resonance which Qualia are generated. They are converted to things that are information. Information of the image, of the sound and of the language, they can be translated into binary machine language consisting of 0 and 1. At that time, by losing the Life Resonance, Qualia is converted into Information. Only Life can resonate with Qualia. The machine never resonates with Qualia. The machine can treat only things like information. From here, it is possible to go confront the deep mystery between Qualia and Information. I was able to find with difficulty such a point finally. Although I cannot drink liquor anymore, Let the imaginary glass empty tonight. I could come to this place by researching "Sick Dancing Princess" of Tatsumi Hijikata which is full of Life Resonance. Not by any information, but by Qualia and Life Resonance, the Butoh of Life will be created

To stop thinking is the alpha and omega of the Subbody process

To stop thinking is the alpha and omega of the Subbody process

The first thing to do in the Himalayas is to have enough rest and relax completely. It is to rest the mind and body that was excited during the long journey. To solve the tension of mind and body, to stop thinking, and do nothing but sleep.
Gradually shift to the mode of listening to the darkness of the body from daily thinking mode. That's the most important thing to do from the beginning till the end.
Shift to the listening mode in the deep brain from thinking mode in the surface brain. During thinking by using language, the brain is excited by electrical signals which fire connections in the neuron cells at the surface layer in the cerebral cortex.

Why do we need to stop thinking?

The cerebral cortex has a 6 layered column structure. The surface layer:Ⅱ • Ⅲ are used in thinking mode and the communication between the left and right cortex. The deep layer: Ⅳlayer is for the sensory systems, Ⅴ • Ⅵ layers are involved in the expression of motion.
Figure: by Sengodai, 1978, from Nishinomiya Hiroshi "multi-space-time theory" 1997

Fig1. Cerebral Cortex Structure

When we think of using language, the neurons of the left and right brain communicate by electric signals through the Ⅱ•Ⅲ layer of the cerebral cortex. However, the glia-neuron cells are resonating with subtle Qualia in the deeper layers Ⅳ-Ⅴ- Ⅵ. The Glia-neuron Qualia is not an electric signal, but an extremely weak chemical signal. When we think, these subtle sensory and movement Qualia of the in Ⅳ-Ⅴ- Ⅵ layers of the brain are masked by the strong electric signals of thinking in the Ⅱ•Ⅲ layer. Hence, we need to stop thinking to open movement completely.


Fig2 Masking the Subtle Qualia by Thinking

What is the meditation and listening mode?


fig3. Medimotion and Listening mode

When we stop using language thinking, electrical signals that come and go in the Ⅱ•Ⅲ layer are weakened, and we can listen to the subtle signals resonating between glia and neuron in the deep brain: Ⅳ.Ⅵ layers. The communication between glia and neuron are using faint chemical signals of neuro-transmitter, and then the cellular Life of glia and neuron can resonate with each other’s Qualia. According to recent brain science, our memories and learnings are reserved in the glia cells of the brain.
To enter the listening mode or meditation mode means to be in the condition where we stop the language thinking and dualistic judgment and just follow the tendency of the Qualia which we can catch by listening to the darkness of body.


Fig4 Keep Alpha Wave Mode

When we are not thinking, the brain waves shift from busy beta wave to calm alpha waves. This is the sign of meditating or listening. Keep this condition as long as possible and you can follow the subtle signal by using the whole body. It is your subbody.
"Conditioning" of subbody method is to become this condition of mind/body.
Important novel findings of recent brain science

Glia-neuron network
Our memories and learnings are reserved in the glia cells of the brain, and it works through the glia-neuron network. Glia takes an important role to control the glia-neuron network.
Consciousness may concern mainly the neuron-network of surface layers: 2nd and 3rd layers of the brain, left the brain and right brain communicate and translate from Qualia to language information through 2nd and 3rd layers. Neurons communicate through electric signals.
Subconscious may concern mainly glia-neuron network in the deep layers: 4th-6th layers. The glia and glia and glia-neuron network communicate by sending subtle chemical signals to neurotransmitters.
The energy level of electric signals among neurons is a trillion times stronger than the chemical signals among the glia-neuron network.
The meditation mode and listening mode means to stop thinking and avoid the disturbance of strong signals of thinking, and we can listen to the very subtle signals of Qualia which are resonating in the darkness of the body.
It takes many years to stop thinking properly. It is the alpha and omega of the subbody-cobody process. I will guide you to it, at first.

Life Resonance among cells in the Unconscious body


Get into the unconscious body with medimotion
The core of the Subbody Life Resonance Method is to listen to the darkness of the body while medimoting for 24 hours.
"Medimotion" refers to moving meditation or meditation that entrusts you to being moved by something (see Ch. 4).
Keep listening to your body no matter what your posture all day long. Then, even though we think it is stationary, we notice that somewhere in the body is always moving finely. Very small parts vibration and sway in unexpected directions. Leave yourself in it and keep moving as finely and slowly as possible.

Listen to Life Resonance among cells

Our body is a resonant body consisting of
100 trillion cells. Those cells are constantly resonating with each other and with the outside world.
Listen to Life Resonance among the cells.
Continue this even in bed. Then we fall asleep, but that's no problem. If we wake up, we can continue. This is the technique of "24-hour Medimotion" to become subconscious or unconscious body. While continuing this for 24 hours, we continue to listen to what kind of changes occur in the darkness of the body.
This is the way to get into our subconscious or unconscious body. So what's going on with an unconscious body?


Cell Life is exchanging Qualia

In the 21st century, especially in recent years, remarkable progress has been made in the area of molecular biology.
The body image of biology until the 20th century was trapped in a tree-like hierarchical order in which the neural network centering on the cerebrum controls the body. It became clear that the hierarchical body image was nothing more than a illusion that was projected the scholar's ego system that was bound by the hierarchical order.
It was discovered that there is no central, rhizomatic Life Resonance network by the 100 trillion cells. They make up the body exchange various Qualia from a part to other parts of the body by the neural transmitters.
In the 20th century, it was known only a small number of neural transmitters in addition to hormones. But in the 21st century, it has become clear that innumerable transmitters are suddenly used to transmit the Life Resonance Qualia among the cells. Protein fragments, often called peptides, are used to transfer special Qualia from cell to cell. It is only surprising that the fragments of proteins, which are the basic substance of living organisms, are used for the resonance of Life between cells.






"The legs are cold!", "insufficient sugar!", "not enough oxygen!", "tired", "I want to take a break", "bacteria came in!", "cancer has occurred!", "Help!", "bad mood", "send me nutrients!", "phosphorus is enough".....
Cells continue exchanging countless Qualia always. This mechanism has gradually been completed as our cell life has evolved from the single-cell era, through somatic cells, and into multicellular organisms.
The internal organs, skins, muscles and bones notify changes in the condition to the whole Life.
Though there are limits of contemporary science. The scientists are bound by too much material view and common information. The messages carried by "neurotransmitters" are not information that is well understood. It is Qualia of Life Resonance.
(For the difference between Qualia and information, I would like to wait for the next my book, "Life Resonance Philosophy." Modern scientists forget to quest Life and are trapped by the physical investigation. Even though everyone knowing Life is not just a material process. They cannot step into the essential quests, and cannot question the state of the current research being limited to the physical processes. )

Now, fully enjoy the subbody and unbody (unconscious body). I recommend that you continue every morning.

Interesting things happen one after another

Whatever happens, while you are moving, never judge right or wrong, and follow your body. There is nothing to judge in the realm of Life. As you continue to move without making judgments and consciousness, ridiculously interesting things begin to happen.
The walking leg suddenly got lost in a dream, somewhere in the body transformed into an imaginary creature, moved by a memory I had forgotten, or a delusion attempted to escape, and so on. The qualia of body movement meet the forgotten Qualia and create new Qualia by the <Resonance Emergence>.
Enjoying it to the fullest extent, tasting it, and continuing to explore it is the Life Resonance Practice.

Resonance yoga

We have behun the Resonance Yoga in the morning several years ago. In the past, I, or another midwife, guided the conditioning every morning, but in order for each and every one of us to grow into a mutual midwife that helps the birth of ourselves and our fellow's subbody=cobody, we devised it.
Resonance Yoga is everyone guides their own the best conditioning and shares it with each other. For that reason, as I mentioned at the beginning, it is essential that everyone builds the custom that researches each day's most comfortable conditioning every morning. And share it with others the best way to become the best condition every morning. This is the basis of co-research and co-midwife.

Double operation with half-open to inside and half-open to outside

When you share the other person's conditioning, if you try to obey it without doing anything, the ego may wake up and begin criticism or negative judgment. Sometimes it gets boring and you get trapped in it. The double operation is devised to prevent it and to calm the ego. Half move the body according to the conditioning guided by others, while the other half listens to the darkness of own body and adds other Qualia movement to a part of the body. This double resonance is to be aware of the double or multiple resonances of Qualia at the same time. This is also a practice to bring a transparent body that is open to the outside 50% and to the inside 50%. If you get this dual operation technique, you will also be able to perform resonance yoga and simultaneously search for your own Qualia, so you will not be bored and there is no room for critics to appear.
Feel everything with opening full of empathic imagination in the "Resonance Yoga". This is a step for the "De-self" that is not trapped by only one's own problem, but also it is the first step to become mutual midwives who help each other's birth of subbody=cobody.

Dancing the "Behind World"

Dancing the “Behind world

What is the Behind world?
 

Our Life s resonating with Qualia of the various invisible world; the imaginary world, dreaming world, prototype world like a primitive intuition, archetype world like various imprinted images in the genome like the Hell, Heaven, Devil, God, Ghost, monster. Engel, fairy, sprit, great mother, trickster and so on. Hijikata called these various invisible worlds totally “Behind world”. (See. Chapter 9 “Quiet House” ).

1. “The Red God”

A girl who plans an evil deed in the rain

Keep Floor Face throughout the whole time

Obsess with Salmon Face compulsively

Stuffed spring

Nest of Forest, Nest of Eyes, a moth placed on a wooden board

A vaporized candy maker or the Christ drawn as a Samurai warrior

A fine spider’s thread that runs on the forehead

Beggar

Cat Waist

Behind World

Garbage disposal place

When I rubbed a mirror, there was a swaying shadow of the flower

A fragile sound collapsed in a shed

Can Factory Regenerate a reduction by X 

Behind the mirror 

Blindfold walk

Hide your eyes by the blindfold and walk at a safe place.

Listen to the subtle Qualia in the darkness. You will meet various unknown Qualia, invisible and non-dual that is not able to distinguish which it is. You may feel just fear, scared, shivering, blockage, these are the Prototype Qualia that is imprinted in the genome. You may feel strange images, ghost, monster, fairy, spirit and so on. These are the Archetype Qualia that we receive them from the ancestor. You may meet imaginary creature or strange atmosphere and your body shrink or shiver. All of those, we call the behind world. Taste it and remind it. This is a practice to collect Qualia of the Behind world.

Exchange the Behind world Qualia

One person stands with the blindfold and the other approach him/her with becoming your own Behind world Qualia that you have met in the blind walk from the behind the person. The front person can response freely. The other person changes to various Behind world.

Dance the Behind world

One person or one group dance at the center of the stage.

own Behind world and approach the partner with transform into various Behind worlds. The front person or group dance with free resonance.

This is the practice to release from the daily habit to dance only in the self-position. We need to try the de-self conditioning often until we are released from ego and self to become Life.

Nondual=Dual Transformation
 
 30 April, 2020

Non-dual and Eight channels

Listen to the Non-dual Qualia

When we calm down our daily mind and body by Medimotion and start to listen to the body, at first we feel something undefined which we can’t distinguish what it is; “Is this sensation? Imagination? Dream? Illusion? feeling?”. It seems something mixed all of them. We call it “Non-dual” Qualia. Life of the hundred trillion cells of our body is resonating with multiple Qualia of Gravity, Sunshine, Air, temperature, moisture, sound and so on. Not only those of present physical Qualia but also memories of them reserved in the cell as the four billion years Life memories. Qualia are resonating with those multiple and non-dual Qualia and changing always. That why we can’t recognize it clearly.

When we continue to listen to with medimotion, or self-researching with changing body position, sometimes the Qualia appear through a channel, and it becomes clear to recognize as the bodily sensation like warm/cold, heavy/light and so on. Sometimes it appears as the spontaneous movement, sometimes visit us as a visual image, or audio image of voice, sound or music. Sometimes as an emotion, human relationship Qualia or world image=self-image, or a word or phrase and so on.

This is the Rhizome=Tree sway of the Qualia. In other words, Non-dual=dual sway. Qualia is always swaying between them. Listen to it transparently and follow it by your whole body=mind.

  Fig.2 Qualia are streaming among non-dual and eight channels

Dancing between Non-dual and dual Qualia

See the fig.2. The most of Qualia, maybe over 99.9999% Qaulia are non-dual and Rhizome without any orders and hierarchy. They are hidden in our hundred trrrilion cell’s Life memories. Out brain can’t recognize it.

But through medimotion, our body’s cells become able to remind it, and appear at some channels Qaulia; sometimes bodily sensation, spontaneous movement, visual fantasy, audio body sound, emotion, human relationship, world-self-image and Qualia thinking and so on.

Hunt the moment and follow it by your whole body=mind=brain, it become your subbody-cobody.

We are waiting for people who want to develop this Life Resonance Art method into, Art therapy, Dance therapy, Music therapy and so on.

This is the way everyone can become a unique artist in the world.

Five Desires Research Life Resonance Butoh Rhizome Lee 
 27 April, 2020



Research the 5 Desires
 

We have 5 basic desires.

1. Resonance desire (tendency)

The most fundamental desire as Life is Resonance desire. Even Life of a cell has this tendency that pursues or wait for the best resonance pattern between Life and the environment. We can regard it as the basic tendency of Life. The cell has no sensing organ, only a cell’s skin, and cell fluid. The Resonance tendency is Non-dual Listen to Life of your hundred trillion cells how they resonate with various Qualia between cell’s Life and the environment; the gravity, the son, temperature, moisture, sound and the Life memories that are reserved in the cell as the inner Qualia. All other desires connect to this Resonance tendency. This is the most fundamental and non-dual tendency for Life.

2. Safety desire

Next three desires are the fundamental desires as the creature. Start Ash walk and at first listen to safe Qualia that is good Resonance with the world. After for a while listening to unsafe Qualia that you feel fear with the world. Like this in each desire try to listen to both of good Resonance Qualia and dissonance Qualia. Dance it by your spine response. The prototype fear, shivering and blockage might be hidden in your deepest hidden muscles. 

3. Comfort  desire

With walking listen to Qualia that you feel comfortable, food, drink, breathe, and circumstances. And Imagine that they are disturbed and you feel uncomfortable. Research your own pattern of comfort and discomfort around your habits, addiction. And so on. Dance it by the response of your all Hidden Cavities; inner organs, the intestine, stomach, lung, heart, throat, mouth, nose, tongue and so on.

4. Connection desire

Connection desire includes sexual desire. But for the cell’s tendency, we can call it as the connection desire as a general term. What do you want to connect to? You will feel satisfied when you can connect to what you want to connect. What do you feel when you can’t connect to what you want to connect? You feel fluctuation and the desire will be twisted, broken, and transform to anger, hatred, jealousy and so on. Taste the both of good Resonance and Dissonance of connection desire. Dance it with the response of all layers of Hidden skin.

5. Individuation desire (Creation desire)

Individuation desire (Creation desire) is only human beings have it. It is a special desire, “I want to be a hundred percent myself.”, “I want to realize all potential creativity, originality, and resonativity (resonance ability) of Life.” It also grasps as the Creation desire. Listen to how did you become yourself? What is it that let you not yourself? Or, how did you fail to become yourself?

 Becoming "Unconscious body" | Life Resonance Philosophy 1-1 |Rhizome Lee
 11 April, 2020


Becoming Unconscious-body

 

Life Resonance Philosophy 1-1

Coronaviruses are not the only ones that evolve by mutation.

Cell' Life also changes due to resonance with the virus or others.

Even during the lockdown, I kept listening to the darkness of my body, keeping myself in a subtle "medimotion" for 24 hours, as I always have.

One day, a ridiculous mutation naturally occurred. Today I would like to share it with you.

Medimotion is a way to become "Unconscious body"

It lets me noticed that medimotion is the way to become an unconscious body.

I said that listen to the darkness of the body while 24-hour medimotion.

First, let me introduce you how.

Whatever posture you have during the day or night, you will continue to be moved by very subtle something in your body. A very small part is moved in an unexpected direction. Put yourself in it and keep moving as slowly as possible. It's like this (see video).

Subdivide the body and let it be moved

There's a trick to this, first, divide your body into a hundred parts.

Let 1% part of the whole body be moved.

It's like this in sitting or lying down (see video).

Do this all day long. Sometimes you forget it, but it's okay. If you remember, just continue. And listen to your body what is changing.

Continue this even in bed. You will fall asleep, off course, it's OK. If you wake up, you can continue. This is the technique of 24-hour medimotion, which is the technique of getting into the unconscious body. While continuing this, listen to what kind of changes will occur in the darkness of the body.

Divide the internal organs and face into about 100 parts

Today I would like to introduce a more advanced medimotion technique and listening.

The internal organs are divided into about 100 parts, and each part is moved in various directions. If you pay attention to the subtle changes in the internal organs, you will always feel a subtle Qualia, so just follow it. This is how it works (see video).

Then, divide the face into about 100 parts and let each part move in resonance with the internal organs. It's like this (see video).

In behavioral psychology, it is called "micro gesture". It is an unconscious movement that appears in a very subtle moment.

Eventually, each part of the body resonates with it and begins to move in various ways.

Trinity resonance

In this way, the unconscious movements of internal organs, the unconscious movements of the face, and the unconscious movements of the body resonate with each other like this. You just keep up with this.

This is the path that goes into our unconscious body.

So what is driving the unconscious body?

 

Cell's Life is exchanging Qualia

Our body is a resonance body of a hundred trillion cells Life. They exchange various transmitters to keep the change of each part informed. Transmitters carry qualia, which indicate changes in the state of cells.

"My legs are cold.", "We need food.", "I'm injured.", "Not enough oxygen.", " I'm tired.", "I want to take a break.",  "Bacteria came in. Help me!", "I'm feeling unwell, send me some nutrients!"

They are exchanging countless Qualia, and control our body=mind automatically. This mechanism has gradually been created as our cell's Life evolves from the single-cell era, through group cells, and into multicellular organisms. In the 20th century, not only hormones but also a small number of nerve substances were known, but suddenly in the 21st century, it became clear that there were innumerable transmitters for exchanging innumerable Qualia. Protein fragments, called peptides, are used to transfer special Qualia from cell to cell. It is an amazing resonance method.

A hundred trillion cells of the body exchanging Qualia

The unconscious body always resonates with something and is driven by something unknown. Actually, it is driven by the Life Resonance Qualia between cells as above.

Interesting things happen one after another

Whatever happens, while you are moving, never judge right or wrong, and follow your body. There is nothing to judge in Life. Judgment belong only to human illusion.

If you keep moving without making judgments and consciousness, you will gradually start to get ridiculous and interesting things.

Suddenly the walking leg gets lost in a dream,

Somewhere in the body transforms into an imaginary creature,

Sometimes moved by the forgotten memory,

You are attacked by delusions and tried to escape,

Due to various ways, the body movement Qualia meets the forgotten Qualia, and <resonance emergence> creates new Qualia.

Enjoy it to your heart's content.

This might be the big chance to change your life

So, today, I introduced a deeper way of <Medimotion that becomes the unconscious body>.

This is a mutation that occurred in the darkness of my body during I was imprisoned by the coronavirus.

It was the second biggest event following my encounter with the subconscious body (subbody) 20 years ago. What new Qualia will be born in your case?

It will surely lead to a big change that will change your way of life. The Isolation and confinement due to coronavirus may actually be the door to unexpected changes.

Coronavirus hits India's poor especially hard 
 11 April, 2020


To build a future that shares the issues of the weak as our own

 
In India, lockouts of 1.3 billion people have been implemented to combat coronaviruses, and two weeks have passed.

As we look at the situation in India, poor Life Resonance with the poorest people such as migrant workers is remarkable.
More than 10,000 people in Delhi who had no choice but to return to their hometown because they suddenly lost the job in the city, and the government gave only a few buses and most of the rest have to walk back hundreds of kilometers to the hometown.
It reveals that the Indian government bureaucracy has no sense of Life Resonance to them.

Also in the United States, black people and Hispanics account for the majority of coronavirus deaths.
This is because he cannot afford to have a large amount of health insurance and cannot receive uninsured medical treatment at a hospital because it is too expensive.
It is these contradictions in the modern world that the coronavirus problem has highlighted.
How bad the world we have made.


Long distant eyes for the better future is being questioned


What is really being asked now is how to resonate with the problems of the vulnerable groups. How can we co-create a world where we can solve the problems of the weakest people, poorest people, those who do not have health insurance, who have disabilities and are excluded from ordinary citizens, rather than the world that is good for only me.
We need to prepare those distant eyes for the future world.

The Fouth message against coronavirus Sotai Medimotion |Rhizome Lee 
 
Let's get over the stress by coronavirus through medimotion Appeal from Himalaya Rhizome Lee 
 

Let’s get over the stresses by coronavirus through medimotion

--An urgent message from Himalaya

Everyone in the world!
Now, we are facing various difficulties caused by a coronavirus.

I resonate with your hardship deeply.

My name is Rhizome Lee. I have lived at a small town Dharamsala, on the mountains foot of the Himalaya north part of India, and I built a Butoh school named “Subbody Resonance Butoh School Himalaya for 20 years.

Now, even in the remote Himalayas, we are in confinement de facto that we are banned from going out and gathering with more than four people since last week. We became like the prisoners at home and lost daily freedom.

Around 70 years ago, a French novelist Camus wrote a novel "Pest" and described a special condition of confinement. And now we have to experience the same condition of confinement.

In this state, we have to face unexpected stress and frustration. I think some of you are experiencing mental and physical frustration and many kinds of struggle in the human relationship.

Here I would like to introduce a way to overcome this difficult situation.

It is the Medimotion method that we have practiced in the Himalaya Resonance School for the past 20 years.

What is medimotion?

Medimotion is moving meditation. Traditional meditation is doing with a fixed body, for example like this. We stop the movement; just sit still and use the only mind.

But medimotion is meditation with moving freely.

Traditional Meditation is also useful in such an unusual state to listen to your Life and travel various unknown worlds that hidden in your Unconsciousness.

And medimotion is much more useful than meditation in such a confinement state. Because medimotion moves the body freely, it is suitable for your health, and you can meet many more exciting worlds hidden in your darkness of the body. You can do it anywhere, alone, or with your friends.

How to do the medimotion

Please find a quiet place and sit down freely.

There is no rule on the shape of the legs. Any sitting positions are OK.

Imagine that a thread is attached to the top of your head and pulled up. The spinal cord of the body stretches straight.

And imagine that someone pulls a part of your chest forth and back.

The body is moved by someone forward and backward comfortable.

You are moved not only forth and back, but also left and right and up and down. It is with the most comfortable speed and size. Gradually, not only the chest but also various parts of the body will be moved in multiple directions. Please continue it for a while, until your whole body becomes very comfortable.

And you can follow the body with more parts are moved in unexpected directions, arms, legs, hip, stomach, etc.

When your head is moved to on the floor, the legs, which generally support the body, begin to dance in various directions.

That’s all in the beginning process. Please enjoy it thoroughly.

I hope all of you to overcome the "confinement" by medimotion and have a good day. I hope to meet you someday. Thank you for watching it.

If you like it, please proceed to the second stage.

 

 

Let’s overcome the stresses by coronavirus through medimotion

--The second message from Himalaya

 

Listening to very subtle Qualia

In the first message, I shred the way of medimotion. It just follows what someone moves you into various ways.

As you get used to it for a couple of days, you will notice that the various "feelings" at multiple parts of the body are transforming while being moved in the medimotion.

Listen to the subtle feeling in your body. Sometimes you may remind of a forgotten memory or dream. Sometimes some parts of the body want to shake or float. Enjoy being moved by someone in various ways that have never moved before.

This "feeling" is very subtle. It is born and disappears momentarily. You can sense it for a  milisecond and then it disappears or changes to another "feeling".

This subtle feeling is called “Qualia”.

Qualia is everything that Life resonates. Not just human beings, but all living cell’s Life resonates.

The secret of infinite creativity of Life

Qualia has a mysterious characteristic. When a Qualia meets another Qualia, the third new Qualia is born immediately and spontaneously. It is not something you can control by your consciousness. The Qualia resonates with and emerges new Qualia automatically.

For a try, please think of pink Qualia in your head. And remember an elephant Qualia, too. But please. Never imagine a pink elephant Qualia.

How is it?  No, you can’t control it yourself. I think a pink elephant is walking in your head. It is the wonder of Qualia. But this mystery of Qualia is the secret of the infinite creativity of Life.

During you are moved by someone with comfortable speed and size in the medimotion, your daily consciousness will disappear, and you will be in a subconscious body mode.

Only in this subconscious or unconscious state, the infinite creativity of Life that hidden in the darkness of the body can be opened.

Open your creativity to all fields

Medimotion is useful not only for Butoh or dance but also for any channels. If you like painting, please draw the visual images that came up while the body is moving. If you like music, crate a music piece with the audio Qualia that came up with unexpected melodies or rhythms. If you are good at words, write the words that appear one after another in ok. It may become poetry, it can be a long story like a novel. We call all of those as "life resonance art".

After all, the Subbody resonance school has developed into an art center for life resonance arts in all art fields, not just Butoh.

If you are interested in opening the creativity of Life that begins with this medimotion, please visit the Life and Resonance Art Center, once the Coronavirus has disappeared, and you are free to travel.

The Center is open all year round as space where various artists from all over the world come together and resonate freely.

I hope all of you to overcome the "confinement" by medimotion and have a good day. I hope to meet you someday.

 

 
 Fukushima's lie
 
Fukushima Nuclear Radiation Has Contaminated ENTIRE Pacific Ocean 
 
9 years anniversary of Fukushima 3.11

Radioactivity still leaking from Fukushima continues poluting the Pacific Ocean and harming Life.

Remember, this is the most important Life Resonance Qualia that everyone now pretends to have forgotten.


 
What is Creativity of Life | Rhizome Lee 
    07 March 2020

What is creativity?

Our quest has finally come to a 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 (resonance ability).
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 <Resonant 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 multi-dimensional resonance realm. 

 

 

How can we open infinite creativity as same as Hijikata

 

There is a traditional practice method in Japan.

It is just to follow the form that the master made.

Zeami of Noh master learned the form that his father Kannami made.

Hijikata’s dancers have practiced the form that Hijikata made for a long time. It was believed that it is the only certain way to get it.

However, I have researched why only Hijikata could open such incredible creativity.

I know that Hijikata continued to dig his darkness of the body.

Hijikata wrote,

 

“I’m peeling the darkness of my body.”

 

When we eat a bird, we peel off its wings and peels off the meat. Peel the flesh clinging to the bones of the fish and eat it.

Hijikata continued to dig the darkness of his body as if peeling and eat it for his whole life. And created a lot of creation. That's is the secret!.

If we continue to do the same, we should be able to open up the creativity sleeping in the darkness of the body.

I have continued to sink into the darkness of the body. and I got when we could stop daily consciousness, in the subconscious state we can meet so rich Qualia in the darkness of the body. I noticed that these Qualia should be the infinite creativity of Life.

If we could share this method, anybody become able to open one’ potential creativity as same as Hijikata.

I have started to share the method in Himalaya twenty year ago. It is the origin of Subbody method.

Transparency 
  29February 2020

What is Transparency?

 

Transparency means not being bound by outside.

Transparency means not being bound by inside.

Transparency means not being bound by anything.


Listen to inside 50%, outside 50%.
Keep this balance exactly to be transparent. Transparency means not being bound by anything, not bound by internal elements and external elements, and we can become Transparent Life. The word of inside and outside is tricky, it changes always depend on the focusing condition.

Subbody mode
For example, when you are subbody mode, inside means inner Qualia; feeling, emotion, desire, memory, imagination and so on, outside means present physical resonance with the environment.

Cobody mode
When we are cobody mode, the outside becomes a friend’s movement and inside becomes yourself.

Subbody=Cobody
mode
In the
performance, the outside becomes the audience and inside becomes the dancers. Performance is the training chance to challenge to be transparent Life in the world. In the performance, we tend to be bound by the word of “Showing”. This word is bound by the daily dualistic illusion. Daily mind=body is bound by the dualistic human illusion of <self and others>, inside is separated firmly from outside, and we are bound by the pressure, “I have to show myself to outside.” But, this word “show” is a dualistic illusion, “I” show something. In the real aspect of Life, there is just Life Resonance> In the resonance, there is no subject, no object, it happens from both side. But, the daily body is bound by the illusion of “I” as the subject, and regard the others as the object. We need to take off all of these illusions to become the Transparent Life. All of us are One Life and performance is the field to share the best of each.

Not being bound by anything
Transparency means not being bound by anything.
It means not bound by yourself, not by the group and not by the audience and the world.

 

There are some useful techniques.

Steal the steps
Not bound by “I”, ego, self, all inner Qualia; feeling, emotion, desire and so on. Zeami said, “Steal the steps”. When you do a strong step or big movement, you steal the sound of steps. Then you can keep the transparent balance. When you want to shout, do it as the “silent shout”, then you are not bound by the emotion. 

Half carrying a secret, half co-create the total Jo-Ha-kyu
When you co-create a cobody piece that your friend initiates, half you co-create the total Jo-Ha-Kyu with finding best timing and spacing, and at the same time always you carry your own secret. Then whole time becomes pure creation.

 

Real-time Resonance
Not bound by the group
totally. Even if you confirmed the Jo-ha-Kyu development with the meeting of group rehearsal, always everyone research the best MA of timing and spacing, and if you find novel resonance pattern, immediately follow it even it is out of confirmation in the meeting. Then Jo-Ha-kyu will be co-created in the real-time Life Resonance.


Riken (Distant) eye
In the performance, if you are afraid of the critical eye of the audience,
swallow it as your Riken (distant) eye. And you can see yourself always and able to find the best MA and resonance pattern. 
What you afraid audience eye means wants of your own Riken (Distant) eye by yourself.

Multiple Life Resonance
Actually, we are living in the multiple resonance world of the Qualia. 
All dualistic judgment and hierarchy are the human illusion.
Become Life!

Become the Transparent Life which is not by anything!
Become Rhizome!
Become a Secret!

 

 

Transparent Riken (Distant) Eyes

 

See yourself by Transparent Distant eyes, and check the following;

 

1. No Duplication

Do not do Duplicate the movement unconsciously. See yourself at each moment from Distant eyes and if you find it, break it, and invent.

 

2. Break your habits

Do not allow your habitual arm position, leg position as usual, and invent novel positions that you have never done at each moment.

 

3. Remember forgotten Qualia

Listen to your Hidden skins, Hidden joints, Hidden fluid and resonate with your Qualia cloud around your body. Those Qualia moves each detail, part, and whole body.

 

4. Subtle control technique

Pass through different Qualia at random, at a different part of your body, in a different direction, with a different rhythm. Remember the <Slow Kanchen>, <Silent speed>, <Listen to subtle Life Resonance>, <Carry density> and <Jumping wild>.

 

5. Mutual Midwife

Either opening all the above points, listen to yourself and others equally. Then, do not regard the issue of the others as a stranger, accept it as your own issue, invent and share the best conditioning that solves it. What we are trying to co-create is a community of the future that we can care for each other.

 

6. Become Transparent

While accepting all of them, slowly your body will become Transparent that is <half passive, half active>, <half outside, half inside>, <half follow, half invent>, <half subconscious, half Transparencious>. These are the basic checkpoint by your <Transparent Distant eyes> at every moment.





 

 
Qualia and String Theory 
 26 February 2020



What is Resonance?

 

The String theory

A revolutionary change in physics happened at the end of 20 Century.

It was the String theory that changed the fundamental view of the Universe. In the 20 Century, the standard physics regarded that everything in the Universe was made of the particle; Molecule, Atom, Quake, and so on. But, the String theory revolted the fundamental view that not the particle but very tiny String is the most fundamental thing.

According to the String theory, all matter and energy are made of the change of resonance pattern of the String which is resonating in the 11 dimensions: 4 Expanding time and space dimensions and 7 tiny curled-up dimensions (Calabi Yau space) in the Plank length which is the smallest scale in the Universe. 

Plank length: 1m(-33)=0000000000000000000000000000000001m


Calabi-Yau Hidden space

All kinds of matters and energies (Gravity, Electro-magnetic power, Strong power, Weak power) are made of the change of resonance pattern of 11-dimensional resonance of the String, but after Big-Bang that was happened 4.6 billion years ago, only 1-time dimension and 3 space dimensions are expanded. The other subtle 7 space dimensions are still cured in the Plank length.





Resonance patterns of the String are infinite.

If it is allowed to expand the String theory to Life, also Life must be born as a special resonance pattern of the String. We can suppose that the specialty of Life is that Life can catch the subtle change of own resonance pattern as the Qualia. Other material can’t feel the Qualia and can’t recognize the change of the state of the matter itself. This is the essential difference between physical material and Life. Though no scientist notices it.

Listen to the Subtle Qualia 
When we became the subconscious mode through the Medimotion  (See chapter 4), we can catch a Subtle Qualia stream in the darkness of the body.
Listen to them carefully for 24-hour, All of them are a precious source of your creation.

Free Traffic of non Dual and Dual Qualia 

21 February 2020

Conditioning N0. 8.

Non-dual and Eight channels



Listen to the Non-dual Qualia

 

When we calm down our daily mind and body by Medimotion and start to listen to the body, at first we feel something undefined which we can’t distinguish what it is; “Is this sensation? Imagination? Dream? Illusion? feeling?”. It seems something mixed all of them. We call it “Non-dual” Qualia. Life of the hundred trillion cells of our body is resonating with multiple Qualia of Gravity, Sunshine, Air, temperature, moisture, sound and so on. Not only those of present physical Qualia but also memories of them reserved in the cell as the four billion years Life memories. Qualia are resonating with those multiple and non-dual Qualia and changing always. That why we can’t recognize it clearly.

When we continue to listen to with medimotion, or self-researching with changing body position, sometimes the Qualia appear through a channel, and it becomes clear to recognize as the bodily sensation like warm/cold, heavy/light and so on. Sometimes it appears as the spontaneous movement, sometimes visit us as a visual image, or audio image of voice, sound or music. Sometimes as an emotion, human relationship Qualia or world image=self-image, or a word or phrase and so on.

This is the Rhizome=Tree sway of the Qualia. In other words, Non-dual=dual sway. Qualia is always swaying between them. Listen to it transparently and follow it by your whole body=mind.

 

 

 

Fig.2 Qualia are streaming among non-dual and eight channels

 

Dancing between Non-dual and dual Qualia

 

See the fig.2. The most of Qualia, maybe over 99.9999% Qaulia are non-dual and Rhizome without any orders and hierarchy. They are hidden in our hundred trrrilion cell’s Life memories. Out brain can’t recognize it.

But through medimotion, our body’s cells become able to remind it, and appear at some channels Qaulia; sometimes bodily sensation, spontaneous movement, visual fantasy, audio body sound, emotion, human relationship, world-self-image and Qualia thinking and so on.

Hunt the moment and follow it by your whole body=mind=brain, it become your subbody-cobody.

We are waiting for people who want to develop this Life Resonance Art method into, Art therapy, Dance therapy, Music therapy and so on.

This is the way everyone can become a unique artist in the world.

HOME --We are One Life on this planet
 15 February 2020


We are One Life on the planet 

I want to share the biggest mysteries for me. It is what is Life, what is Qualia and what is Resonance.


What is Life?

 

Scientists tried to define Life in various ways such as self-replication, self-organization, etc. But all the Life theory have been overlooked one point that only Life can sense the Qualia and thereby able to control itself.  Modern Life research is limited to material research on DNA and genes, and Life cannot be viewed radically as something that resonates and swaying between material and non-material.

Life is a special being which can resonate with subtle Qualia. Qualia is everything that cell’s Life resonates with; Qualia of Gravity, Sunshine, Air, Weather, Temperature, Moisture, Sound, Smell and not only those present and physical Qualia but also inner Qualia which is reserved in the cell as the Life memory.

The newborn Life had very few resonance patterns with the environment. Life could get new resonance pattern through the experience and transfer it to the next generation. Then present cells have much richer resonance patterns of Qualia. Life can recognize the change of its own cell’s condition through resonance with Qualia and has a special ability to reserve it as the cellular memory.

 

What practice do we need to become Life?

1. Listen to Life at each moment every day, and ask your Life.
"What do you want to do the most?"

I have kept asking the question every day for the last twenty years.
This is the basic in the basic task for becoming Life.
Without this, nothing happens.
Just keep listening to Life.
I do not know what is Life. 
It is one of the biggest mysteries I've met.
Because Life is a huge complex mystery and secret.
Thinking ordinary, Life has three phases.

(1) Life of an individual

If I die, it's just the end of everything. I was caught by that in the past.
However, we cannot catch the Life only by it.

(2) Life of cell

Our body consists of 100 trillion cells. Every single cell has Life. And each cell has been living for 4 billion years. Each one has Life memories of 4 billion years. Our beings are the resonance body of 100 trillion cell's Life.

(3) Life as a Life Tide
Not only our human cells but also all living cells continued to live for 4 billion years. From the origin cell that was born 4 billion years ago to today, with differentiated into various species and changing shapes. It is a single huge Life that has to be called a big Life Tide. Life is ONE.

Life needs to be regarded as integrating all three phases.
Listen to Life and keep listening.

 

We are oneness multiple Life 

consider the fact that these creatures lives have continued from the original life which appeared on the planet four billion years ago. It is one huge long continuous Life made up of multiple oneness. Everybody is a part of this oneness of Life. One of the best places where I have danced! Living creatures are more or less so similar. I and amoeba are not so different from each other. I enjoy this awareness. We are just participants in the oneness of multiple lives. It is so great to taste! 

Quietness for Becoming Life

We need extreme quietness to become Life.
We have to escape from the big noise of being human
. We have to forget that we are human. We have to stop thinking and taking care of the circumstances.
How is it possible for students who have arr
ived at the Himalayas from noisy modern societies to achieve infinite silence?
At first, we have to know that we need a million times deeper quietness than the daily life that we live.
I entered this quiet realm one summer. When we understand what real quietness is, we can listen to the subtle sway of Life and Life resonance. Then we can enter the new dimensions of investigation of Life.



  

What is the Life Resonance Butoh?

 We resonate with all Life’s suffering and pain on the earth. All creatures are ONE LIFE of four billion years old. Become Life and resonate as Life. It is the Life Resonance Butoh. 
We are aiming the Life Resonance Revolution in all over the world. Come to Himalaya and join us to open your infinite creativity, originality, and
resonativity (resonance ability) of Life.
 

Butoh transmitted from Life to Life is Life Resonance Butoh.

Listening to hidden Qualia 

10 february 2020

Hidden joints

 

Metamorphose from a hidden joint
our daily bodies have forgotten so many functions.
The tail is no longer used for the devolution, but we have still the nerve around the tail.
When we imagine the image of the tail in a movement it helps us so much.
sternoclavicular joints (the joint between chest bone and color bone), and sacroiliac joints (sacrum and pelvis) are also forgotten joints.
Try to move these hidden joints very slowly into three-dimensional directions and taste the Qualia. 
If you feel deep resonance at a movement, it is an entrance to your hidden bodies.

 

Chest Joint (Sternoclavicular joint)

Move both collarbones forward. The heart fades just a little. Move them even forward, the heart is closed and has been excruciating.
The constellation of the skeleton is changing, introverted self comes out.
Close the chest in addition. We can meet the stony-self who closed to the outside world.
Move both color bones backward. The extroverted character is coming out.
Move them upward. We can remember when we fail something, we shrug one's shoulder.
Move more and our neck disappear like a tortoise shrunken his head.
Move both collarbones down to the bottom. You become a long neck. Move neck with becoming birds and horses.
Move both color bones breading out to the clavicle. 
The sternoclavicular joint is spreading like a free bird chest.
Move both collarbones in a narrow. The sternoclavicular joint is fixed.
Move more, and then chest closed like a fish and snake which doesn't have a chest.
Swim just like a fish with only spine work.

 

 

Sacrum joint (Sacroiliac joint)
Move both pelvises forward. Close to the pelvis and chest. The basic constellation of skeleton changes.
You may metamorphose as a prudent character like an armadillo.
Move both pelvises backward. The sternoclavicular joint also spread to a diplomatic, an arrogant personality comes out.
Move the top of both pelvises closer. The knee becomes X leg, Chest also closed, Twist the arm to the limit. You meet a strange character who was folded in the darkness of the body.
Move the bottom of pelvis closer. At the top of the pelvis is spread to a pregnant mother's position, you can experience the body feeling of pregnancy. Walk with taking care of the baby. You can know what the mother is a little something. Separate both pelvises away from the sacrum. When the distance between the pelvises become maximum, your pelvis becomes the delivery position.
Remember the experience which everybody has been experienced at once.
Move both pelvises close to the sacrum. The pelvis is fixed. 
And even closer to the pelvis, your body becomes a snake or fish.
Swim with using the only spine just like a snake and fish swimming.

 

 

Hidden joints of the hands and feet

similarly, move the hidden joints of the hands and feet slowly with a three-dimensional direction.
Center/edge change: Move from the center of the body (Sternoclavicular, sacroiliac), and from the edge of the body; from the tip of a finger, toe. Switch from center to edge, and reverse.
Bottom/top change: Wave coming up from the bottom of the body like a plant, and move from the top of the head like an animal. Switch from bottom wave to top wave, top wave to bottom wave.

Jaw joint and hidden eye movement
Move jaw joint three-dimensional directions, and move eyes in an oblique direction.
You can meet various hidden characters depending on the degree of twisting. Jocular self, full of ideas, cunning personality, curious character, and so on. When you meet a stranger, slowly become a friend.

 

 

Hidden muscles

 

To open anatomical transparent eyes for the darkness of the body help us to transform the weakened body.
Our daily bodies are bound by rough and large movement by using big surface muscles. Also, normal dance, sports are bound by the same rough and large movements.
But we have deep layer muscles under these surface large muscles.
They are not straight but spiral and connect bones beyond plural joints. They are forgotten by the daily body and dissociated into the unconscious realm. I call it "Hidden muscle".
We need to inhibit the gross daily body which is bound by only large surface muscles at first.
Then we can listen to the subtle signal by transparent eye for subbody which is connected to hidden muscle and hidden Qualia. To open other dimensions which do not exist in the daily world with using hidden muscles and hidden Qualia is one of the essences of Butoh technique.  

Hidden muscles in spine and body
When we remove large surface muscles like a large back muscle, chest muscles, and stomach muscles, the longest straight spine muscle appears (fig.1).

 

Fig. 1  Middle layer muscle of the back

This muscle is used to keep the body straight with using bottom muscles together.
When we change the degree of contraction of then, we can control the flexibility of the body. 
For the meditation and Zen sitting, we control them in a medium degree of contraction. 
For transforming stone or puppet, we contract them in maximum degree.
When we release them in each degree, we can transform from solid body to liquid body and vaporized body according to the degree.
When we remove the longest spine muscle, we can find tiny muscles which connect each spine in different dimensions (fig2).

Fig. 2  deep layer muscle of the back

We use these hidden muscles to transform the weakened body.
The skull and each neck spine bones, collar bones, shoulder blades are connected by many tiny hidden muscles in different directions; straight, diagonal and spiral (fig3).

Fig. 3  between skull and neck

The spine and pelvis and leg bones are connected by psoas major which is the biggest hidden muscle. (Fig 4)


Fig. 4  Psoas major

normally we use poses to bend the body and to raise leg forward.
We inhabit these big movements of poses; we just contract poses a little for shortening the leg and subtle swaying.

Hidden muscles of legs and arms 

Most of the hidden muscles run trans plural joints and connects bones apart spirally.

When we stop surface muscles and use the hidden muscles, a strange movement which does not exist in the daily human world appears.

Not made by the head, but following subbodies which live in the darkness of body.

Subbodies have their own Qualia, image, timing, rhythm, we just follow them, and we can sink down another dimension.

 

  

Fig. 5  lower leg

Fig. 6  forearm

The daily body can control only large and rough muscle; big hip muscle, long thigh muscle, hamstrings, and so on.
We need them for daily movement and sports, all kinds of dance, but for weakened Butoh, we start to inhibit the rough and large movements, then we can meet subtly hidden Qualia which are folded in the hidden muscles.
When we control them in contraction and release independently, we can transform any kinds of hidden bodies; not-me body, proto bodies, puppet body, humanoid body and weakened body which is swaying between death and Life.

Long process to become Butoh body
To transform the weakened body, we need both of long training to listen to the subtle Qualia of the darkness of body, and to be able to control subtle swaying of each part of the body in different dimensions by using hidden muscles.
It takes a long time.
Tatsumi Hijikata also needed for five years after the legendary aggressive performance of "Nikutai no hanran" (The rebellion of the body, 1968, Japan), to transform the weakened body which dies down all gross movement of dance he learned and completed the weakened body Butoh.
Start from training for controlling each hidden muscle independently.

Next stage is the trans joints movements with becoming another being in different dimensions.
Always aware of subtly hidden Qualia which are folded in hidden muscles, hidden joints, hidden cavities, and hidden skins by opening a transparent mind, then you can transform another being which lives in different dimensions.

When hidden Qualia which are folded in your hidden part of the body and subtle hidden movement become oneness, the weakened body Butoh begins from there.
Take off all conditions as a human.
Become an unknown being swaying between this world and another world.
Look at this living world by dead eyes from another world

Rhizome=Tree Free Traffic

Free Traffic among Rhizome and Tree

What is Rhizome?

 

The Rhizome is the raw form of Life without the time concept.

We have to wake up the Rhizome awareness. We, humans, have forgotten it for a long time while of the recent five thousand years history after the Tree-like Hierarchy system as Nation-State appeared.

But, all human history of millions of years we human lived without Tree-like hierarchy. Also, Life has no hierarchy, it is real Rhizome. So, Rhizome is the Origin of Life, and at the same time the future image of the human. 

We are bound by both of the inner Tree-like hierarchy, and outer Tree-like hierarchy system which supports each other. 

Inner Tree-like hierarchy system is “I”, Ego, Self, Identity, Language thinking and dualistic judgment of good/bad, right/wrong, in/out, top/bottom, beautiful/ugly and so on.

Outer Tree-like hierarchy systems are ancient of human relationships; Nation-state, Law, Religion, Moral and so on.

Being bound by them, the modern human couldn’t open the hidden potentiality of infinite Creativity, Originality, and Resonativity (resonance ability) (= resonance ability) of Life. 

The rhizome is released from all of those binds of the Tree-like hierarchy system.

But, the important thing is not bound by any dualism. Rhizome and Tree are always swaying and transforming beyond the difference.

Sometimes, Tree will be born in the Rhizome, and some parts of Tree become Rhizome. I hope not to forget the Rhizome=Tree sway always.

 

 

The characteristics of Rhizome are the following;

 

1. The rhizome can open infinite Creativity, Originality, and Resonativity (resonance ability) (= resonance ability).

Rhizome has both the principle of Independence and Resonance.

 

2. The rhizome can connect freely, separate flexible without bound by any hierarchy.

 

3. The rhizome is not only bound by the Tree but also not bound by Rhizome. In case of necessity, Rhizome can take responsibility for everything in the world, initiate any activity, involve others and organize the best resonance pattern, and able to follow others and promote it as well.

 

4. The rhizome can segment the body infinitely into cell level and each part can transform into diverse Qualia.

 

5. Each part can deterritorialize from the original place and reterritorialize new space. The rhizome can become Nomad beyond any borders.

 

Deleuze and Guattari wrote;

 

 

“A rhizome has no beginning or end; it is always in the middle, between things, interbeing, intermezzo. The tree is filiation, but the rhizome is alliance, uniquely alliance. The tree imposes the verb "to be" but the fabric of the rhizome is the conjunction, "and ... and ... and..."

The middle is by no means an average; on the contrary, it is where things pick up speed. 

A stream without beginning or end that undermines its banks and picks up speed in the middle.”

 

 

Free Traffic among Rhizome and Tree

 

In above, I focused on to describe the difference between Rhizome and Tree. But, the most important thing is not to be bound by all dualistic judgments. There is no dualism at all in the Universe except human illusion.

What I wrote above is to explain the words of Rhizome and Tree. Language is obsessed with dualism, so it can be read as if the two were in a fundamental conflict. However, the essence of Rhizome is to reveal that dualism is an illusion. Rhizome can convert into Tree anytime, anywhere, and Tree can change to Rhizome.

But, during I have continued to travel in the darkness of the body for decades, especially after encountering a novel discovery, I was often trapped by a dualistic belief Immediately, “It must be this.” But, the dualism that believes this is right, that is wrong exists only in human illusion. In the Life realm, there is no right/wrong, good/bad.

The traps that I have been bound by are the following;

“We must be Rhizome.”, “We have to stop language consciousness at all.”, “Conditioning must be Medimotion.”, “Butoh must be the Weakened body Butoh.” etc.

But during the continuation of the travel, I noticed the reason why I was bound by them is that they are always swaying among the opposite state. The Rhizome is swaying with Tree always. Language consciousness is swaying between subconscious Qualia through <Qualia language> that is the intermediate-term. Qualia become language and language transforms into Qualia. The Medimotion is also swaying between the traditional meditation. To listen to the sway is pretty richer than being bound by only one side. We can touch the actual darkness of the body. 

During 20 years history of the Subbody school, there were some old students that were denied by my temporarily dualistic belief. I want to apologize to all of them and hope to share this deeper finding of Non-dualDual sway, RhizomeTree sway, QualiaLanguage sway, SubconsciousConsciousness sway, MedimotionMeditation sway, Weakened bodyStrong body and so on.

We all are travelers in the middle way of travel.

Toward Future of I  
 

Why did the daily body lose creativity?

 

Why the subconscious body (subbody) has infinite creativity?

The fundamental logic of the subbody method came out transparently.
The reason why the subbody had to be submerged in the darkness of the body after being dissociated from the daily body, was because the subbody had Qualia that could not resonate well with this world.
The daily body gathers only Qualia that can resonate well, and repeated infinitely, and eventually developed a strong ego, identity, self-dynamism.
"I am strong", "I am kind", we knit a story of self-identity by gathering good Qualia that can affirm ourselves. And we try to reinforce the same story of ego every day.
All the Qualia that have leaked from it are driven to the darkness of the body as a subbody=cobody. The Qualia that resonate only once, know what is unacceptable in this world, sink deep into the darkness of the body without repeating its anymore.
So, to encounter the subbody the followings are important;
1. Search Qualia that Life could not resonate well.
2. Find Qualia that has never been repeated.
3. They might be immobilized in Qualia of <Kan (disability)> such as stiffness, blockage, habit, disability of mind and body, and are hidden somewhere in the darkness of mind and body.
It is especially important to focus on these three points.
It was these Qualia that Hijikata Tatsumi kept collecting throughout his life.
I was able to encounter this solution finally by closely observing the branch point between the subbody and the daily body.
While tasting those Qualia collected by Hijikata by the body, their common points soaked into the body naturally.
Deleuze which I have been reading for many years also helped in this understanding.

"The possibility of future creation is buried in things that have never been repeated" ("Difference and repetition")

Deleuze observed the daily body rather than the subbody and found the fact that "I", ego and identity repeatedly wear the same Qualia infinitely. They are only of what was old second-hand Qualia. It is arranged by tree-like hierarchical order. There is nothing fresh. Daily bodies are alienated from creativity because they are repeating the same thing.
With this, the reasons why the daily body are alienated from art and creation were also clarified.
And also why creativity is packed only in Life of the subconscious body.
I knew it from the experience of the body, but I could not explain logically until now.
Deleuze, thank you.
With this, we can add some new to the points of ordinary "Sati" (awareness that can be obtained by listening to the subtle Qualia).
Until now, we focused to be aware of when inner language talking comes up, we notice and stop it.
When we are caught in emotions, not expressing it as it is, but swallow it and wait for fermentation to a novel creation in the body.
Instead of obeying such a large inclination, we focus on listening to some sort of uncomfortable Qualia that Life cannot resonate well.
In addition to these, even when it is repeating the same Qualia, do notice it and stop immediately.
Life is short. It is unendurable to keep on repeating the same thing and getting old.
Stopping it at that moment and continue listening to the subtle Qualia of the three points above.
Let's keep listening with the subbody mode as possible as long, possibly for 24 hours.
This is the secret to living the life of full creativity every day.
Hijikata became the subconscious body and found the important Kan (disabled) Qualia to listen to.
Deleuze continued to criticize the daily body of the contemporary world and had reached the solution.
A half-century passed since I started the struggle with both. And finally, the two became one.
Both of them tried to bring novel creation to mankind. It is natural that they are connected.
However, this is the first time that the logic of the connection is discovered and they become one by resonance.
Both of them tried to bring a new creation to mankind. It is natural that you are connected.
However, this is the first time that is found the logic of the connection and discovered that it will become one by resonance.
The Tree Rhizome method that freely travels back and forth between daily consciousness and subconscious body is finally obtained a rich result.
It will open up a brilliant way that anyone can do.
Let's spread the Life Resonant Art to the world and turn everyone's
Life into Art.

A Girl / Tatsumi Hijikata

The last Butoh of Hijikata

       Tatsumi Hijikata left a long Butoh-fu for his last solo, “Quiet House”, 1973. We can learn the essence of the last stage of the weakened body method and so much rich advice for creation. It has multi-dimensional Qualia at different levels, categories, channels. Because the world of life has no levels, no categories, no channels. He called it the “Hidden logic world”. We need to enter the hidden world by stopping ego, self, thinking and all kinds of human binds if we want to learn from Hijikata Butoh really. It is the only one narrow way to be subbody to enter the hidden world which Hijikata used to sink down.

              That is the reason why many people could not understand his essence of butoh, and so many independent interpretations made confusion about butoh.

              Butoh-fu for “Quiet House” 

The Butoh-fu is made of 250 lines. Each sentence has a different dimension, category, level, and channel.

  “The red god”

  A girl who plans evil deeds in the rain
  Keep the face of the floor throughout the whole time

  Stick to a face of salmon as a monomaniac
  A stuffed Spring

  A nest of the forest, a nest of eyes, a moth which is put on a wood plate

  A vaporized caramel artisan or the Christ which is drawn as a picture of samurai in combat

  A fine spider’s thread which runs on the forehead

  A beggar
  The lower back of the cat

  Other worlds

  A garbage disposal place

  When I rubbed a mirror, there was a swaying shadow of the flower

  A fragile sound collapsed in a storage barn

  A canning factory

  Regenerate a reduction by X

  Behind the mirror

This is the first paragraph of the score which has 27 paragraphs.

Slowly we enter the world of the score.

  “The red god”

The god is a kind of archetype which we share in the collective unconsciousness. But the appearances are various types of god archetypes in different cultures and ages in human history.

The concept of God in Japan and in Western culture is different, in Japanese tradition, there are eight millions of god. It is influenced by animism.  Hijikata transformed it in an original way as the red god. We need to change the archetype in an original way. Otherwise, we are bound by the archetype. What does the red god mean?  Nobody knows. It is a secret of Hijikata. We can only guess the mystic Qualia.  Hijikata did not dance by his daily conscious mind, but he danced with listening to the Qualia which something moved him. He just named the mystic unknown something which moved him as “Red god”. He was always resonating with different dimensions.

  A girl who plans evil deeds in the rain

A girl lived in the darkness of his body, sometimes the girl moved then also Hijikata had to move in the different dimensional way as if the girl stands up, Hijikata has to fall down. When the planning of the girl developed, also something influenced Hijikata’s movement. 

  Keep the face of the floor throughout the whole time

The face of the floor is a flat empty face like an ash body; Hijikata keeps it from the beginning to the end as the basic face, with listening to the subtle change of it. When the floor was stepped, it becomes dirty; a water drop may affect it.   

  Stick to a face of salmon monomaniacal

Into the floor face, sometimes some strange tendencies come up from the darkness. One of them is this. A monomaniac hidden tendency which sticks to a face of salmon face comes up. Salmon has terrible strong eyes and mouths like a hawk. Find your own hidden tendencies which are folded in the darkness of the body. Dance with resonating all of them.
  A stuffed spring

A stuffed thing is one of the main characters in his weakened butoh. A stuffed bird keeps its shape for a long time after death; it has another slow time which is a different tempo of the living bird.  After fifty years of being put away in the closet, the stuffed bird becomes fragile with eaten by bugs. If we touch it, it will be collapsed down as dust in a moment. The stuffed Spring means a kind of stuffed world condition. The characteristics of Spring as warmth become a limit of fragility. Hijikata Butoh is performed between the hidden world and the visible world.

  A nest of the forest, a nest of eyes, a moth which is put on a wood plate

Nest” is one of the important terms which were used often in the Hijikata method. It means a conglomerate of the Qualia group. Nest of eyes includes so many kinds of eyes as rotten eyes, glass ball eyes, dead eyes, salmon eyes, “Riken” eyes ( eyes which watch you from outside), and so on. Also, the forest is the conglomerate of unknown mystic Qualia. Therefore the nest of the forest means a conglomerate of the conglomerate. It is a metaphor of the complex and mystic multi-dimensional world of different unknown Qualia. Even a dead moth on a wood plate is resonating with subtle Qualia in the multi-dimensional realm.      

  A vaporized caramel artisan or the Christ which is drawn as a picture of samurai in combat

In the non-dual and multi-dimensional world, everything is swaying between presence and absence, between now and another time. Hijikata had worked at the caramel artisan factory in his young age. The Qualia of artisan were already vaporized and it transforms the Qualia of Christ which are drawn as samurai pictures. The caramel artisan, Christ, and samurai are swaying in the mixed Qualia at the hidden realm.

  A fine spider’s thread which runs on the forehead

  A beggar

  The lower back of the cat

Also, these Qualia are resonating in his various parts of the body as a nest; sometimes they come out and pass through.  

  Behind world

Always he is resonating with many kinds of other worlds behind this world. He called it “Behind World”. The resonance is happening without our intention. It is beyond our consciousness, but Hijikata noticed it transparently. What is another world behind you?  Is it the dead world by the war?  Your forgotten memories?  Fetus dreams? Hidden hopes?  Unhappiness in the world?  Be aware of all of them and dance with them.

  A garbage disposal place

Also, this is Qualia of the behind world. Contact the world through various perspectives. (10, 11, 12, 16 and the red god are the variations of behind world in different perspectives). 

  When I rubbed a mirror, there was a swaying shadow of the flower

We can contact subtle signals of the various behind world. Remember the moment when you have contacted them. The inner hidden memories and present behaviors are always resonating. It is so subtle. Then our daily mind ignores them. When we stop daily consciousness, we can feel them.

  A fragile sound has collapsed in a storage barn

When we notice a subtle unknown sound from the invisible place, our lives guess them “What is it?”  The resonance between inner Qualia and outer Qualia happens. Life is always shivering with the unknown signal from the invisible world. Continue to listen in them, and open your transparent resonativity. 

  A canning factory

This might be also one of the inner memories of Hijikata. You can replace it with your own hidden memory.  

  A reduction by X, and regeneration

A reduction is a decrease in something, in the size, shape, or amount and so on. To regenerate means to return something to the former condition. Hijikata extended the meaning of it to the maximum. X can be anything. We can reduce everything by any element. A reduction by size is to resize something into a small size. Regeneration is to return the former size. Hijikata used this method to expand our imagination to the maximum. He researched the sunken logic before the world of the separation between self and others.

To reduce a movement by time is to be slow or to be still.  To reduce a bird by time means a living bird becomes a stuffed bird. It is also to decrease the time dimension from the four dimensions which we are familiar with in the daily world. When we reduce one space dimension from a three-dimensional landscape, the landscape becomes a two-dimensional map. To regenerate it means to increase a space dimension, then the map returns three-dimensional landscapes.

To reduce an adult by time is to return him a baby or fetus. When we amplify it to the limit, a human returns an origin life as a cell. When we can expand our imagination to the maximum, we can transform anything beyond time and space. This is one of the main hidden techniques of Hijikata to see the world in different ways. 

To reduce a human by strength means that the human becomes a weakened body. To reduce a human by life strength means that the living human becomes dead. This is a universal magic method of Hijikata butoh.

  Behind the mirror

What is there?  What could you see? Don’t think. Just feel it. Open the universal transparent mind and body toward the multidimensional life resonance between visible things and the invisible world.

Flower of Kan (Disability) Rhizome Lee Video Lecture

Flower of “Kan”

1. A subtle bodily sensation of the beginning of 'Kan'

When Life meets something unable to resonate well, a subtle bodily sensation visits us. It is the sign of the beginning of 'Kan'.
Hijikata caught the subtle sensation exactly as the following.
It is so subtle and strange that the daily body ignores or cannot notice, but when we stop daily gross consciousness, everybody can catch it. 

Squeaky air
Being gouged and melt
Plants crawl the temple
Birds fly away from the temple
Stain on the wall infinitely
Crack
Blurred flowers wander
The itch
I disappeared into the haze
Whereabouts of the body are placed into the body
Multi-Layering of nerve mescaline
Trapped in the mesh of the moment
Rain to diarrhea
A doll smolders Busubusu
Wire in the body
Locomotive passes through the inside of the body
Consisting of margin
Viewed by the bird's-eye
Attacked by light
Spider web of light
The ankle was bitten by a rabbit
The internal organs hanging out of the body
The neck of the crane extending from the internal organs
Follow on the waterways of the internal organs
The face which is put painted inside

Leaves fall in the cranium one by one
(Butoh Score in Hijikata's words from

2. Condensed 'Kan' on a part of body and mind
When an unsolved problem stays on the body for a long time, it condenses and causes an abnormality of the body. These are the typical 'Kan'.

We study Kan Qualia that Hijikata collected for his whole life.
Kan means Life couldn't resonate well. The most Butohtic Qualia. We studied them in the 212 Chapter of "The Butoh", and I selected as a Kan Walk butoh-fu as the following.

Kan Walk
1. Start from Ash walk or own weakened body
2. Squeaky air
3. A plant grows up from inner organ to temple
4. A bird flying away from the temple

The Encounter with Hijikata Butoh | Rhizome Lee

The Encounter with Hijikata Butoh

Description: H1-300

 

 




Encounter with Hijikata Butoh


              When I first saw Tatsumi Hijikata performed butoh, my young soul was broken. Shivering, I could barely stand.
It was 1972. Hijikata's Butoh Company, HangiDaitohKan, performed at the Seibu Theatre of Kyoto University in Japan. I was twenty-three years old. Throughout the performance, several dancers were hiding under old tatami mats on the stage. When they finally emerged, moving as if dying, like the collapsed bodies of people poisoned by mercury, someone started crying in the depths of my heart.
              Twenty-five years later, I decided to become a butoh dancer. Hijikata was already dead, but the impact of his performance, which I saw in 1972, lingered for twenty-five years in my body and mind. Sinking into the darkness of my body, I began my investigation into butoh, exploring why I needed to do butoh.
              In the year 2000, I moved from Japan to the Indian Himalayas to find a small space in which to practice butoh. Modern society was too busy and too full of information; it was hard to listen to the silence of my body in Japan.
              The first thing I discovered was that when my consciousness becomes quiet enough and calms down to the same level as my subconscious, I can feel the whole flow of Qualia(*1) streaming in my body, very delicately and precisely.
By searching within this Qualia flow in the darkness of the body, I finally found the Subbody Butoh Method that Hijikata must have found and entered forty years earlier, although he could not teach it to his students. 
 
           I coined the term ‘subbody’ to denote the subconscious body. In the realm of the subconscious, the subconscious and the body are not separate as they are in the normal thinking world. In the non-dual, multi-dimensional realm of Qualia and life resonance, they become one.

         For the last two decades in the Himalayas, I have been creating a method for searching for the seeds of butoh by sinking into the darkness of the body. The Subbody Resonance Butoh Method is for everyone to learn how to develop their own butoh dance.

What is Butoh?

I have found three essential components to Hijikatas butoh:

1. To abandon all conditions of being human, and to transform into Shisha (a dead channel or receiver) and the suijakutai (weakened or collapsed body) which resonates with spirits of the dead, insane, and handicapped.

2.  To enter dimensions other than the human world, and to become beings of these other worlds.

3.  To look at the living world as dead, from a world beyond. 

Hijikata often said to his students,

 “Never forget to abandon all conditions of ‘human’.”

This is the most important part of changing from a normal being to a butoh being. If you hang on to the concept of ‘human’, you will never transform into another being.

By throwing off the narrow concept of a modern human, we can enter into another world, in which multi-dimensional Qualia streams are flowing and changing. Pre-modern people lived here. In this world, there is equality between humans and animals, and the living and the dead communicate with each other as friends.

Hijikata invented a way to expand the concept of ‘human’ by opening one's abilities to enter into other dimensions and come back to this modern world freely.

3. The third essence is to look at the living world from another world, as one of the dead.
When we become an inhabitant of the dead world and look to the world of the living, we can see that this living world is full of resonance between Qualia - light, the sound, wind, and so on.

              How brilliant they are! How special the living world is!
Through this experience, we can see the daily world in a new light. It opens another art of human living. (I will write about this more precisely later.)

These three transformations are the essentials of Hijikata's Butoh.

              The other characteristics are not important. The white painted face, the ganimata (O-shaped legs), the slow-motion, etc. are just surface appearances of butoh.
Butoh was a big invention in human history because it expanded the concept of the ‘human’ by opening the ability for resonance with other dimensions. It opened a new art of human living. It must be very clear that this did not come from the surface appearances of butoh.
              Michel Foucault predicted that "When a new art of thinking and living is invented, the concept of the human will vanish like letters written in the sand, washed away by the ocean waves."

Yes, butoh is the ocean waves, which will wash away the old, narrow concept of ‘human’.

A Happy Four Billionth New Year Of Life!

Let's open the eyes of Life


We renew the site name to "Life Resonance Himalaya", as the 15th year anniversary of it since 2005.
We need to take off the narrow "human" illusion and become Life.
Life never judges. Life just resonates with everything in the Universe. In the case of Life can't resonate with some Qualia, Life just waits for the time to find the best resonance pattern with it.
We will investigate in Life, Qualia, Resonance, Rhizome, and Art deeper.
To open the future of Life that every kind of Life even mutated or disabled can live with own unique creativity.

Warm Resonance

What is Life, Qualia and Resonance 
 

 

The Mystery of Life, Qualia and Resonance  

I want to share the biggest mysteries for me. It is what is Life, what is Qualia and what is Resonance.


What is Life?

 

Scientists tried to define Life in various ways such as self-replication, self-organization, etc. But all the Life theory have been overlooked one point that only Life can sense the Qualia and thereby able to control itself.  Modern Life research is limited to material research on DNA and genes, and Life cannot be viewed radically as something that resonates and swaying between material and non-material.

Life is a special being which can resonate with subtle Qualia. Qualia is everything that cell’s Life resonates with; Qualia of Gravity, Sunshine, Air, Weather, Temperature, Moisture, Sound, Smell and not only those present and physical Qualia but also inner Qualia which is reserved in the cell as the Life memory.

The newborn Life had very few resonance patterns with the environment. Life could get new resonance pattern through the experience and transfer it to the next generation. Then present cells have much richer resonance patterns of Qualia. Life can recognize the change of its own cell’s condition through resonance with Qualia and has a special ability to reserve it as the cellular memory.

 

What practice do we need to become Life?

1. Listen to Life at each moment every day, and ask your Life.
"What do you want to do the most?"

I have kept asking the question every day for the last twenty years.
This is the basic in the basic task for becoming Life.
Without this, nothing happens.
Just keep listening to Life.
I do not know what is Life. 
It is one of the biggest mysteries I've met.
Because Life is a huge complex mystery and secret.
Thinking ordinary, Life has three phases.

(1) Life of an individual

If I die, it's just the end of everything. I was caught by that in the past.
However, we cannot catch the Life only by it.

(2) Life of cell

Our body consists of 100 trillion cells. Every single cell has Life. And each cell has been living for 4 billion years. Each one has Life memories of 4 billion years. Our beings are the resonance body of 100 trillion cell's Life.

(3) Life as a Life Tide
Not only our human cells but also all living cells continued to live for 4 billion years. From the origin cell that was born 4 billion years ago to today, with differentiated into various species and changing shapes. It is a single huge Life that has to be called a big Life Tide. Life is ONE.

Life needs to be regarded as integrating all three phases.
Listen to Life and keep listening.

 

What is Qualia?

Life is only one being that can resonate with Qualia in the Universe.

Life was born as a special being which can catch the change of body as Qualia that connect to the resonance pattern of the String.

Double Resonance of Qualia 

Life has two kinds of Qualia. One is Outer Qualia that is present physical Resonance between the body and the environment. Another is the Inner Qualia that is memories which are reserved in the cell for four billion years.
Outer and Inner Qualia is always resonating double, through it Life can recognize the present condition comparing with the past.
Life was born as such a special being that can resonance with the subtle difference of the resonance pattern of the string as the first time in the Universe. (or maybe not the first time, but nobody knows yet).

Why only Life is able to resonate with Subtle Qualia?
It’s a mystery that nobody knows.
We can only suppose Life as what was born as such a special novel being 4 billion years ago in the Universe.



What is Resonance?

 

The String theory

A revolutionary change in physics happened at the end of 20 Century.

It was the String theory that changed the fundamental view of the Universe. In the 20 Century, the standard physics regarded that everything in the Universe was made of the particle; Molecule, Atom, Quake, and so on. But, the String theory revolted the fundamental view that not the particle but very tiny String is the most fundamental thing.

According to the String theory, all matter and energy are made of the change of resonance pattern of the String which is resonating in the 11 dimensions: 4 Expanding time and space dimensions and 7 tiny curled-up dimensions (Calabi Yau space) in the Plank length which is the smallest scale in the Universe. 

Plank length: 1m(-33)=0000000000000000000000000000000001m


Calabi-Yau Hidden space

All kinds of matters and energies (Gravity, Electro-magnetic power, Strong power, Weak power) are made of the change of resonance pattern of 11-dimensional resonance of the String, but after Big-Bang that was happened 4.6 billion years ago, only 1-time dimension and 3 space dimensions are expanded. The other subtle 7 space dimensions are still cured in the Plank length.






Resonance patterns of the String are infinite.

If it is allowed to expand the String theory to Life, also Life must be born as a special resonance pattern of the String. We can suppose that the specialty of Life is that Life can catch the subtle change of own resonance pattern as the Qualia. Other material can’t feel the Qualia and can’t recognize the change of the state of the matter itself. This is the essential difference between physical material and Life. Though no scientist notices it.

Listen to the Subtle Qualia 
When we became the subconscious mode through the Medimotion  (See chapter 4), we can catch a Subtle Qualia stream in the darkness of the body.
Listen to them carefully for 24-hour, All of them are a precious source of your creation.
