Revitalise Your Life Through Absurdity Therapy

What have you seen, heard, or touched today, that you have never encountered in your life before? You will be hard-pressed to come up with an answer. This is because the well of new things to see and do gradually runs dry as we get older. A ‘first’ (a virginal sight of sound, etc.) is like a rare butterfly sighting. But this can all be changed, for we have an amazing power-tool called the imagination. By using the imagination we can invent, create, even lie to ourselves and discover ‘firsts’ (novel sensory inputs).

Why Should I Want to Invent or Create?

The brain is jogged by a major event – something new and/or absurd. Children live in a world of absurdity, they have yet to see and know it all; for them, there still exists skeletons in cupboards, fairies at the bottom of the garden, and Santa Claus in Lapland! This newness, ‘firsts’, is unlike normal brain energy; general run-of-the-mill brain stuff doesn’t require extra attention, but absurdity does. An unidentifiable idea enters the brain and has no friends (matching data); it is an absurd/new concept. Your eyes can hardly keep up with children playing in a playground because they are full to the brim with biological energy. Children, because all is new/absurd to them, ceaselessly convert virginal sensory input into energy. The more energy the child expends the more the body reproduces. The child perpetually sees new, and burns energy to leave room for more newness.

Raw Cosmic Energy

If you create a song, poem, or picture, you are using raw cosmic energy. A planet, man, animal, or plant, all came into being through the manipulation of raw cosmic energy. Raw cosmic energy is latent substance, which when manipulated in a certain way creates life, objects, or whatever. 1,000 years ago there was no such thing as an aeroplane. Since then many people have manipulated raw cosmic energy (in the form of mental energy) and converted it into physical reality. A little child is channelling raw cosmic energy incessantly, because all is new and unknown. Try this little mind exercise so that you can get a taste of this novel stimulus.

Natural Born Creator

Do you know that you are a natural born creator? As a child you had no trouble bringing a toy soldier to life and sending it off to war, or believing that your doll was real and needed motherly love. Let yourself go and allow your childlike imagination to take the reins. Think the most illogical things that you can, then incessantly repeat these illogical ideas within the brain. The brain will electrify with pure cosmic energy. It is what the brain yearns for but rarely gets. That is why the brain becomes sluggish; it likes new stuff, not the old and dull that occupies every minute of the day. No wonder the brain reacts to absurdity by filling your heart with gladness and your veins with childlike energy, for the brain is reborn, consciously reborn by you, the higher self.

You Have Created an Absurdity – Here’s How to Squeeze the Lemon 

Prepare for meditation in the careful way you always do and bring your absurdity to the foreground of your mind, for instance: ‘An octopus playing basketball’.

See the weird creature juggling the ball between eight sinewy tentacles; imagine the super speed that he could bounce the ball using each of his slippery arms. In your mind’s eye create a game for ten minutes using the octopus dribbling and spinning the ball amongst the other tall lanky basketball players helplessly trying to get back the ball. Give the eight-armed star a face and a name; he must become real to your senses. Perhaps you brushed past him in your attempts to recapture the ball; imagine how wet and slippery he must feel. He would smell of the sea and fish, and on the rare occasion you hold the ball it has all these sea elements on its surface.

Absurdities rekindle childlike patterns throughout the brain and body; in terms of sense datum the practitioner’s biological clock immediately rewinds. In the next example it is possible to activate and witness sensorimotor activation: ‘Imagine that you have two invisible limbs, such as two extra arms’.

Imagine that you have two long tentacles alongside your arms. Starting at the shoulder blades the phantom limbs stretch a hand’s length further that your real arms. The next time you’re in the kitchen, imagine reaching out for things in cupboards and drawers with your new additions. Persevere and you’ll get a shock by the fact that you’ll actually begin to feel the phantom limbs!

Continue in this way to deeply impress upon your brain the ideas of your new absurdities. See if you can come up with at least one bizarre or illogical concept a day. Remember that absurdities lie in books, television, and in real life.

Zing Capsules 

Pure essence of mind, or ‘first’, creates biological energy: fusion occurs in the sun between hydrogen atoms to make helium. Chemistry is spontaneous interaction, especially between atomic and molecular systems. A pure thought (latent energy) fuses with physical matter and is converted into biological energy. This biological energy I refer to as ‘zing capsules’. Absurdities induce fleets of these ‘zing capsules’ (atoms filled with biological energy) which zoom around the body distributing childlike energy at various destinations. As an absurdity in itself why not visualise these billions of ‘zing capsules’ charged with energy speeding around the body and brain?
