Been reading the book--very interesting. Took a bit of digging to figure out what dicyanin
, referred to as "spectauranine" in the book, actually IS (outside of all the New Age spectulation) and has resulted in some very interesting details about the visible structure of auras.
To make a long story short, dicynanin, as prepared in these experiments, is an organocopper
protein, dicupric cyanine
. The material on the aura states it is in the "ultra red" (infrared) band, but based on the properties of dicynanin, that is not exactly
correct... it IS in the "red spectrum" region, but in the reciprocal red
I find this to be very interesting, because I have "moderate protan" color blindness--fairly common, about 1:25 men and 1:200 women have it. The official definition is that the "red sensing cones" overlap the green, losing sensitivity to red and being overwhelmed by green, yellow and orange. Research I did years ago did not agree with that... what I lacked in "red" perception showed up as improvements in other areas. When I was young, I had 20/8 vision (normal is 20/20), superior night vision and the ability to see detect movement in the field of vision far beyond normal perception (just call me T-rex!) I also had the ability to see auras, as far back as I can remember. The information in this book makes sense of all that now... cyan is one of my favorite colors, simply because it is so vivid
to me--that would indicate my "red cones" are actually "inverse red" cones--sensitive to cyan--which also explains the night vision. This may also indicate that the aura is actually being emitted in the yellow-magenta-cyan "negative light" band, rather than the common, RGB (ROY-G-BIV) "positive light" band. Normal sight does not "see it" for the same reason you don't see cyan and magenta in a rainbow--but--the information in this book indicates a person can be trained
to see into that band, though the effect is temporary (kind of like the leftover color blobs you get from a flash bulb in your face).
I find this very interesting--and it makes sense. The aura comes from the aetheric double, the projection of the cosmic soul in 3D time into the "equivalent space" of 3D space--it would make sense that it would be negated
, as it would be in the ultra-high speed range (3-x), which is the NEGATIVE speed of the low speed (1-x) range, per Larson.
I found this from an abstract of a student research paper (still trying to locate the actual paper):
Dicyanin is also interesting because of its genetic structure which features a dual domain motif absent in all known BCBs [Blue Copper Binding protein]. This dual domain is theorized to bind two copper ions in a cooperative relationship for unknown reasons, and provides a unique window to trace a branch of BCB evolution with great confidence and precision. For these reasons this project has focused on two goals: 1) to purify and characterize dicyanin to determine its native structure and function and 2) to trace the evolution of dicyanin and homologous proteins through all available gene sequence information.
What the author, Spenser Smith, did not realize is what that "window" does, optically. These Kilner filters appear to "invert" cyan light into the red region, which then becomes optically visible to people with normal color sight. That is what the di-copper structure is apparently doing in the dicyanin. I still have to research the atomic structures.
Page 116 of the book has an interesting experiment:
The true physiological primary colours are those that can stimulate only one set of colour-sensitive nerves simultaneously. One method of ascertaining a person's own personal primary colors, is to press the closed eye, when there will usually be seen small yellow dots all over the field of vision. Intermingling with these are much larger discs of blue, and lastly red points intermediate in size between the yellow and blue discs. The yellow are the most numerous and the blue next in number.
The procedure is simple; close your eyes than take the lower section of your index finger on each hand and lightly press them against your closed eyelids. (I've done this for decades--use the procedure to balance my internal energy, consciously. Can completely revive you when you are exhausted, once you learn the trick to it.)
This is actually the first time I've seen someone else talk about this eye technique--try it and see what happens. I'd be very interested in what you "see" doing this. (Mine is different from described.)
