Hi all,

I've come across a fascinating book that talks about high level spiritual things from a scientific perspective. This book is intriguing as it talks about many similar things to what people in mystical states mention such as seeing into parallel dimensions and interacting with beings from other worlds etc.

This book is called Zhuan Falun and it is from the Buddha Law School of Cultivation however it is not Buddhism the religion or Daoism the religion, it's something more profound. It seems to me to be more of a spiritual science as many of the terms and concepts in the book are talked about in a scientific down to earth manner instead of flowery mystical prose which I found very refreshing.

Now here is where it gets interesting, this book talks about the following things:


Other Dimensions - Levels Of Dimensions spanning into the microcosm and also outwards into the macrocosm

The Soul - It talks about people having a Master soul and a subordinate soul which is hidden from you but is at a more advanced level then you, it states some people have more then one Subordinate soul and some are of not of the same sex as you i.e males having a female subordinate soul etc.

Microcosmic worlds - This concept was very far out but it talks about there being worlds within you, countless worlds. Similiar to our world with life , water, animals etc. An analogy is zooming an an atom within one of your cells and realizing at that level of magnification it is just like our solar system. Then zooming into a single particle in that world and finding out it too is a vast world, apparently the level it can go onwards like this is beyond imagination.

Supernatural Abilities - In the book they mention that everyone has them it is just that they have atrophied. It goes into depth about this topic. Some abilites that are mentioned are precognition, retrocognition and remote vision.

The 3rd Eye - Talks about how at the front part of our pineal gland there is a complete structure of an eye there. Modern science calls it a vestigial eye but in the cultivation world they say this eye just naturally exists like that and it can be activated allowing one to pierce through this dimension and see other dimensions. It talks about how there are many levels to this 3rd eye and it goes into great depth about it.

Thoughts - This part was amazing. It talks about how a human brain is just a processing plant. How the real you is actually your soul, it's like your whole body and brain is just a vehicle and that the true commands are issued by your master soul, but this master soul is very tiny and it can switch positions while inside you and it can also expand and shrink. It can move from your brain to your heart and to other parts of your body and it is 'he' who calls the shots. Your brain is just the factory which your master soul sends his cosmic commands to which then create the forms of expression and communication we use such as speech, gestures, etc.



These are just a few things that are covered but there are many many other things which blew my mind when I read it because of how it resonated with some of the mystical experiences people sometimes have, especially the multidimensional nature of reality and how all of them are hidden in our day to day perceptions of the world.

If this sounds interesting to anyone you can grab a copy of the book here:

The solar system view of an atom is wrong.

You have to take into account the multidimensional nature of reality. In other dimensions the concepts of space/time as well as many other things change. To understand the difference between our current science and Buddha Law I recommend reading this:

There are so many unproven assumptions there. Reincarnation and karma to name but two.

Has that result been peer reviewed?

Notice, it does not show it was actually published, except by these 'pure insight' sites, and the papers that were actually published had nothing to do with meditation.

Or any of the claims in the OP.

I don't believe it has been peer reviewed yet but that does not mean it is not scientific. If it is done under scientific conditions it is still scientific. Peer review began in 1665, are we then to say all scientific discoveries before this time are unscientific?

Here is some additional data. A large scale survey done on thousands of Falun Dafa cultivators in China, North America and Taiwan and the health improvements gained from practicing Dafa ( The book is at the bottom of the page, easy to miss):

http://www.pureinsight.org/node/6628

Also first hand accounts of the healing abilities of Dafa from life threatening ailments. This book has many first hand testimonials of people recovering from life threatening incurable ailments that doctors could do nothing about. Some of them were at death's door and doctors told their families that they only had a few months left to live and so forth. By practicing Dafa they had made full recoveries:
