Local Forms of Consciousness

Substratum of Viruses

By Henk de Weijer

Many epidemics of so-called viral diseases already occurred in the past hundred and twenty years. The Dutch researcher Martinus Beijerinck (1851-1931) interpreted what he in 1898 found as a ‘contagium vivum fluidum,’ an ‘infectious disease of something liquid’ and called it a virus. He could only conclude that the involved units were considerably smaller than bacteria, but they still seemed capable of spreading themselves independently. They died at temperatures of 90ºC. A ‘contagious, living liquid’ unit is not very clear information. Any present form must be based on a substance. Which kind of substance makes a virus? What clarity could philosophy, cosmology and evolution bring in this matter?

In Sutra 1-1 of his opus magnum, Ananda Sutram, the Indian philosopher Shrii P.R. Sarkar mentioned the existence of two elementary components in the universe.1

‘The single Infinite Being is composed of Consciousness and its Operative Principle.’ and also: ‘None of them can stand without the other. That is why it is said that they are an inalienable concomitance.’

If our universe contains objects with specific forms, it must be granular. If that is the case, the space between these granules cannot be the substratum of a third principle, as this would be a violation of Sutra 1-1. A first conclusion can only be that all expressions of consciousness and the operative principle both exist in granular and nongranular form, or in other words, in local and nonlocal form. It also means that nothingness is an illusion; it does not exist. Empty space may exist, but it cannot be empty. If nothingness does not exist, all forms must be entangled, since their internal, as well as external space, is filled with nonlocal consciousness. If ever a bifurcation occurred between consciousness in local and nonlocal form, when did that happen?

Immediately after the Big Bang, the level of energy and the temperature were so high that no elementary particles could exist and only a plasmic state emerged. If, immediately after Planck time2 particles of energy emerged, would it not be logical that in the same epoch, also particles of consciousness emerged? The smallest elementary particles that first emerged have a name, quarks. The smallest particles of consciousness never had a name, until Shri Sarkar mentioned their existence and coined their name: microvita, singular microvitum. Their size is tiny: ‘Billions of microvita produce a single carbon atom.’

Viruses are a heterogeneous composition of atoms and molecules, yet that does not automatically mean danger. What does make their presence dangerous is the fact that only crude, negative microvita are involved, whose only interest is self-preservation and procreation. No feeling for their victims decreases the efficiency of their parasitism. What makes their functioning so efficient?

One reason is their size. However, the danger is not so much in the number of atoms or bases, but in the number of mega-molecules. If the number of atoms would be decisive, all atoms on our planet would pose this danger, which is not the case. The number of negative microvita absorbed is related to the present macromolecules. The more energy that is captured in those macromolecules, the more a positive or negative focus will be directed. The increase of their intrinsic energy could only enhance their focus. If that focus is actually expressed, the endoplasmic regions will also be charged with energy, which further enhances the ability to express themselves.

Are we lost when somehow negative microvita are attracted to specific crude situations and new viruses, or modifications of old ones, emerge? The following text from ‘Microvitum in a Nutshell’3 may show a solution.

“The disease can be cured only when the numbers of positive microvita
are increased, and they devour the negative microvita.”

Activated, negative microvita with a specific nature, have intrinsic energy, which means waves with a specific wavelength and amplitude. (See Figures 1. and 2.) Suppose wave 1, coming from outside, creates a problem. When a virus with its negative microvita (wave 1) is confronted with exactly matching waves but opposite focus from positive microvita (wave 2 in Figure 2), negative interference occurs, and both waves cease to exist.

Beijerinck concluded that viruses were alive. After him, microbiologists discovered that viruses could not procreate by themselves and thus could not accept them as living units. If microvita are the cause and carriers of life, why should viruses — even as collections of only negative microvita– not be accepted again as living?
