reader comments: vibrational medicine

15 March 2015 (from Dale Wiggins to Bob Carroll)
Wake up and learn the science! Elements make up the universe. Quantum physics tells us all atoms consist of particles. Among them are electrons, which are in constant motion and yield vibrations of different frequencies. The spectrum proves this by virtue of us having the ability to discern physical properties of heavenly bodies through their vibrational colors. EVERYTHING IS VIBRATING since everything is made of atoms and their particles. All atoms consist of 90% space (energy) and 10% mass. What do you think occupies that space? PLEASE LEARN ABOUT THE STUFF YOU WRITE ABOUT!

Post if you like,
Dale Wiggins

PS: Read and digest your own articles on Critical Thinking! Learn to understand the nature of EVIDENCE. (As an investigator of 50 years, I believe I know how to identify evidence.)

reply: Dale didn't mention any particular article in The Skeptic's Dictionary that displays my ignorance of physics, but given his emphasis on vibrations I'm guessing he's objecting to the entry on vibrational medicine.

He could have his panties in a tuck over my displayed ignorance on crystal power (crystals allegedly carry "vibrations" that resonate with healing "frequencies").

Or perhaps what motivated Dale to advise me was my entry on energy (quack New Age energy machines abound that claim to do everything from aligning the vibrations of your cells to reading the digital frequencies of allergens to curing your cancer. All these machines are useless variations of the 1920s radionics device of Albert Abrams, "the quack of the century").

Then again, maybe Dale has an investment in the theratest machine (Abrams called his healing method radionics and claimed that he was able to detect distinct energies or vibrations [radiation] being emitted from healthy and diseased tissue in all living things. He invented devices that allegedly could measure this energy [vibration, radiation] and he created a system for evaluating vibrations as signs of health or disease. Despite the fact that there is no history of scientific validation for the claims that sick organs give off particular vibrations, radiation, auras, or the like, or that any device can both measure and heal by detecting and emitting vibrations, electrical impulses, radiation, etc., belief in energy medicine continues to flourish).

It could be that what really offended Dale was my entry on sacred santemony ("Actually, while physics has a lot to say about vibration, it does not declare that the universe is nothing but vibration. Moritz has repackaged the delusions of Dr. Albert Abrams).

Maybe Dale hated my ignorance about Leonard Horowitz:

In addition to promoting the idea of a U.S. government conspiracy to deliberately cause AIDS and Ebola epidemics, Horowitz also believes that in 1939 the illuminati conspired to cause death and destruction throughout the world by establishing the frequency of 440 cycles per second as the tuning frequency for the A above middle C on the chromatic (12-note) scale. This tuning has led us into wars, sickness, and other disharmonies to the benefit of bankers, the petrochemical industry, governments, and, of course, Big Pharma. Horowitz describes it all in a classical composition of paranoid delusion called "Musical Cult Control: The Rockefeller Foundation’s War on Consciousness Through the Imposition of A=440hz Standard Tuning." In prose reminiscent of someone suffering from years of self-imposed constipation, Horowitz writes:

The monopolization of the music industry features this imposed frequency that is “herding” populations into greater aggression, psychosocial agitation, and emotional distress predisposing people to physical illnesses and financial impositions profiting the agents, agencies,  and companies engaged in the monopoly. 

Dale may have been offended, as another reader was, by my misunderstanding of the law of attraction:

Sir, you seem to be misunderstanding the basic premise of the Law of Attraction. Perhaps you are overthinking it just a tad, and this has caused it to go completely over your head. 

The examples that you gave are perfect! LOA is about matching vibrations of thought. A seller is thinking "I want to sell." A buyer is thinking "I want to buy". Their vibrations are a match and the universe starts lining the two up. The vulnerable is thinking "Woe is me! I'm so vulnerable and ripe for attack!" The vulture is thinking "Oh where, oh where art thou, my next victim? I seek thee!" They, too, have matching vibrations and the universe responds accordingly. The lazy dreamer thinks of his desire for a get rich quick scheme and his vibration will align itself perfectly with a con artist whose thoughts are about scheming to get rich!

Grief and greed aren't a "match" simply because they are perceived to be two negatives. They match only if the grief-stricken and the greedy have matching vibrations of thought, and this can be negative plus negative or positive plus positive or one of each. Positive and negative are not necessarily factors. There is no reason for the thought vibrations of a grieving person to line up with those of a greedy person unless that grieving person also happens to include thoughts of monetary abundance in their thought process. 

I could go on, but what would be the point? Since electrons and other subatomic particles vibrate, vibrations are the key to everything. I must have been absent the day our physics teacher taught that lesson.
