Affirming Manifesto for all psycho-somatic disorders

Affirming Manifesto for all psycho-somatic disorders 

Hi!

I am a teacher of Butoh and Resononce touch body work in Himalaya.

I start new serial essay “ The Affirmation” on my website.

“Affirm everything in the whole self.”

This is a Manifesto to all people including psycho-somatic

disorders in the world for changing the way of life.
Affirming Manifesto is a theory and practice to open hopeful

future for us.
I will grow this theory and practice step by step at Himalaya

India.
I look for people who collaborate with us.
Our principle is self-help and resonance.

1. To affirm the whole of your peculiarities

Gradually I understand what the most important thing in life is,

through meditation which I sink into the darkness of body.
I try to listen to the life every day for many years.

The most important thing for human is to affirm everything of our

whole self.

The life does not want to be negated.
Life needs an infinite affirmation.
This is the most important thing for life.

Even if your whole self are dissociated far from us,
Even if your identities are disappeared,
Even you fall into depressions,
Even you are attacked by strange schizophrenic imaginations,
You need to affirm all of them in your whole self.

Everything is resonating!


Everything is resonating!

When you stop daily consciousness, you can catch it.

According to string theory of physics, the universe is made up of tiny strings whose resonant patterns of vibration are the microscopic origin of particle masses and force changes.
Against the standard physics which is bound by the old three dimensional intelligence, string theory opened completely new sight to the multi-dimensional universe. It suggests to us the possibility of new type of thinking way.

I expand the thinking of string theory one more step, I think that not only things, light, sounds, gravity, electromagnetism, but also qualia are made up of strings whose resonant patterns of vibration.

Yes, we human being are resonating with everything through feeling qualia resonance.

What is qualia?

Qualia are feeling of quality about something.
For example, everybody has qualia of red.
And in red qualia, there are many variation.
Red qualia of apple, fire, sunset, blood, etc. we have so many variation and gradation of red qualia.
We don7t mistake qualia of sunset for qualia of apple.
But we have large red qualia, too, we know red qualia include apple, fire, blood,etc. without words, without consciousness.
We are always feeling qualia about everything subconsciously, though our consciousness does not notice it.

Why is it possible to distinguish them without words?
Because eof qualia resonance.
Red qualia of apple resonate with red qualia of fire in a specific resonant pattern.
It resonate with red qualia of blood in a little bit different pattern, then we can recognize the difference and similarity at once.

String theory and qualia resonance

According to the string theory of latest physics, all mass and force are generated by the difference of resonant patterns of tiny strings.
Strings are vibrating in eleven dimensions, include the four dimensions of timespace which we know well, and the unknown seven subtle dimensions which are folded into very tiny space.
Then the resonant pattern of strings are infinite, string theorist suggest so.

I try to expand the string theory into qualia.
Why not qualia, if all existence are generated by strings, also qualia must be generated by the strings.

So, according to my supposition every qualia are generated by the difference of resonance pattern of strings.

The infinity of variation and gradation of qualia must be related with the infinity of resonant patterns of strings.

I can not imagine that except of the infinity of resonant pattern of strings, there is no parallel with the infinity of qualia.

This is the reason why I suppose the resonance theory of qualia.

All creature are resonating in Himalaya

Five years before I started to live in Himalaya. One day of monsoon season, I looked a bird are singing on the tree in my garden.
I asked her, “What are you doing?”
She answered me, “I am just resonating with nature. It is so beautiful.”
Suddenly I noticed the simple fact that every creature is resonating with the world.
After this experience, I slowly change my thinking way from egoic viewpoint which I kept in Japan to resonant viewpoint.
Especialy the many secrets in subbody dance are solved by changing to resonant viewpoint.
Then I started to create this resonance theory.

We are always resonating

We are always resonating through qualia resonance with everything.

When you see a thing, you resonate with reflection of light from that thing.
When you hear a sound you resonate with vibrations of air.
When you read this sentence you resonate with my thinking somehow.
Warmth, gravity, light, color, sound, taste, smell, imagination, thinking, ……everything has it own qualia, and through qualia we resonate with everything in the real world and imaginary world.
There are no distinction between real and imaginary for qualia.

Qualia are always just resonate each other beyond the border of eleven dimensions freely.

How to open creative subconscious

The 4th week / 2006/04/03
●The most creative place on the planet
Now I can say we succeed to open up the possibility of our creative subconscious.
The key is the finding subbody.
When subconscious become oneness with body it is possible to open the creativity in it’s full range.
Subbody method guide you to open eight channels; visual, audio, body, movement, feeling, human relationship, world image=self image, and thinking channel.

Psychologists and philosophers misunderstand that they can treat the subconscious by only thinking way by brain.
But nobody succeed to see transparently.
Because nobody can see subconscious directly.
It become visible when subconscious become oneness with body and movement in whole channels as a subbody.
Now we can see the movement of subconscious as a subbody butoh.

So we have to move with opening whole channels if we want to open our creativity of subconsciousness.
Now we can say this subbody butoh school is one of the most creative space on this planet. If you doubt it you can see our weekly photo journal of the butoh school.
●How to stop the gross body
I guided student to stop the gross body state of our daily body and mind.
For concentrate to listen to the subtle signal from our subbody, we start to sway our bottom of body with sitting position with finding the most comfortable tempo and size.
When we find it, we change the tempo of sway to very slow speed, then we can transform to subconscious mode easily.

When we enter into the subconscious mode, suddenly it is possible to feel so many sensitive qualia of body feeling are coming up. And we can feel very sweet body qualia at some part of body. When we move to spread it to another part of body with very subtle sway, the sweet qualia spread to our whole body. These are the signals that we shift into subconscious mode.

●Open introvert eight channels
We try to open introvert eight channels.
We have eight channels; Visual. Audio, Body, Movement, Feeling, Human relationship, World Image=self Image, and Thinking channels.
Each channel has both of extrovert channel and introvert channel.
Extrovert channels response to real world of outside, introvert channels resonate with inner imaginary qualia.
Extrovert channel is strong and it belongs to gross body of our daily body and mind.
Introvert channel is subtle and weak, it belongs to subtle body in our darkness of body.
Today we concentrate to open only subtle introvert channel in each channel. This method become possible just this year, until last year I could not guide how to open only introvert channel. This is the big change.

・Open introvert visual channel
Catch an imaginary eye which is watching your eyes in front of you.
Try to watch each other with this imaginary eye, sometimes by using exactly front eyes, sometimes by side edge eye.
Enjoy with imaginary vision by using white eyes which watch backward darkness.
Watch between front view and the darkness of back view by using diagonal eyes. Then you will find your shadow character is coming out with cunning face, black humor, jealousy, and any other strange character. We enjoy various kind of delicate qualia which we can not describe by words.
 ・Open introvert audio channel
With breathing listen to the various delicate rear nuance of body sound before they become human language or music by social sophistication.           
Taste them and amplify them by twisting mouth, changing face, and curving body.
When you make breathing sound by changing shape of body, you can feel that it connects to your emotion and feeling.
 ・Open introvert feeling channel
When you open introvert audio channel, you can notice that it is resonating with very delicate feeling flow.
Our daily consciousness recognizes only rough feelings like joy, sadness, anger, fun, ease, love, and hatred, on the contrary, introvert feeling has so delicate nuance variety which we can not explain the subtle difference by language.
Taste the rich variation of introvert feeling which is flowing in your darkness of body.
 ・Open introvert human relationship channel
Play with the imaginary interaction between you and imaginary strange persons or creatures. They appear in the space in front of you, and tease you, mock you, touch you in various unexpected ways.
They may force your arm make self contact in strange way.
They may enter into your body and move as a snake or rat.
Your body is possessed by them. Enjoy it.
 ・Open introvert world image=self image channel
Imagine that you are a fetus in your mother’s womb. This is your first world and self, They are not separated.
Imagine that you are a child in your kid’s room. You are a king in this world.
Imagine your school, society, country, and planet with feeling the shift of your self image.
Imagine that you are in a imaginary world, desert, tropical forest, deep see, moon, heaven, and in the earth. You can create any world image and self image freely.
 ・Open introvert thinking channel
Not opening the normal extrovert thinking channel by the way which you learned at the school.
But listen to a subtle signal of an awareness which comes up from your deep body. This awareness will tell you a deep truth. You must feel a strong brightness with it. Like the dense fog dispersed.
Ancient people used to call this as the enlightenment. When you continue to listen to the darkness of body it occur so often. Just receive it as a little reward naturally.

After this practice, we tried to catch the original qualia of each own subbody and shared together.
It is better as ugly as possible, as weak as possible.
Today pretty interesting subbodys are come out.

(I learned the basic concept of channels from C.G.Jung and Arnold Mindell. Jung’s types are four, and Mindell’s channels are six. I arranged them into eight channels through my experience. See “The process science of the dreambody” by Arnold Mindell ,1985 )

●Why can subbody find such an interesting changing timing?
Today, so many different varieties of Ha=changing movement are appeared from student’s subbodies.
This is the most grateful moment for a midwife of subbody.
Why can subbody find such an interesting Ha=changing timing so well?
I have asked myself for long time about this question.
Now I find an answer. The reason why subbody can find it is because subbody is not bound by stereotypes like consciousness.
Our consciousness is bound by stereotypes of dualism which is opposite of strength is weakness, contrast to slowness is high speed.
Then the judgment by consciousness is always so poor.
But subbody is so free from stereotypes, then subbody can find the best timing of Ha=changing from millions of possibilities.
Then when so many interesting ha=changing movements come out from student’s sobbody, it is the proof that they are now in a subconscious mode enough.
Everything is going well now. How far deep place can we sink into at this school?

The most miserable qualia with the most novel Jo-ha-Kyu

2006/03/28
●Opening the resonance channel
Today, I felt that student’s resonance channels of qualia are opened gradually.
Everyday we try to listen to subtle resonance between me and others, between inside and outside, this attempt sink into their body.
They can feel the resonance between a part of body and another part of body through skin, and also between each body.
When our consciousness is alive, we can not feel the resonance, but when we could stop daily brain, it comes up very easily.
They can move with listening the subtle resonance among them.
They transform from subbody to cobody.
Cobody is a resonating subbody.
When this resonance channel open, we can share very unique qualia which each person’s subbody has.

●The most miserable qualia with the most novel Jo-ha-Kyu
Also we continue to search the deepest subbody with the farthest qualia from human, the most miserable, lowest qualia.
Because it has the most strongest resonance ability.
But we have to find the most novel Jo-Ha-Kyu with this subbody butoh.
Jo-Ha-Kyu is the key of subbody butoh, if we can not show the subbody butoh without novel Jo-ha-Kyu, it does not work. Nobody will resonate.
Then the Jo-ha- kyu is one of the most important technique.

● Transparent Ri-ken (Watch the resonating Jo-ha-Kyu from outside)
We have to learn the thechnique of Ri-ken.
Ri-ken means watch yourself from outside in performance.
But this does not mean to watch by video camera eye.
Video camera eye does not resonate with qualia.
We have to learn to watch the resonance between butoh dancer and audience.
It is always swaying. We need to control it very carefully to find the best timing of Jo-Ha-Kyu.
This is the resonance Ri-ken technique of subbody butoh.
Everything is resonating. It is the most important thing to open this resonance Ri-ken channel in butoh.

How to create the deepest butoh dance

The 3rd week / 2006/03/27
●Search the deepest subbody
This week is the 3rd week after opening school.
We try to deeper research into the darkness of body.
In the morning we trid to experience our fetus qualia dream.
We listen to the body sound each other, and we became a big human womb.
And we listen to the darkness of body to find a strange qualia of the deepest subbody.
What is the deepest subbody?
It has the farthest qualia from human. It looks like the most miserable shape. The weakest, the lowest, almost dying qualia is the deepest one.
Because this qualia has the strongest ability of resonance.
It can resonate with the unhappiness of farthest place in this planet.
If we can dance this deepest subbody butoh, our subbody transform into the strongest resonating body with the world.

When we listen to the body, we can find many kind of qualia.
Almost of them are just giving a subtle short signal, and leaving immediately.
They show an instant bodily feeling, short flirt of image, vision, sign, and disappear soon.
We try to find the deepset one in these qualia, like a lowest creature’s movement, like a dream of fetus, shadow character’s feeling, weakest and dirtiest dying movement.
As strange one as possible, we try to search.

When we catch qualia of deepest subbody, we can amplify it to the subbody butoh with listening the Jo-Ha-Kyu timing.

This is the essence of subbody butoh method.

●Subbody Butoh school has started
Today Subbody Butoh School Himalaya has started.
I will record my butoh teaching and what happen in the school.
I will upload the journal here on every weekend.
(When you meet unknown word, please read subbody butoh method.)
The students are Sara and Hiro from Japan, Pierre-Luc from Canada,
Monica from Brazil, Keren from Israel, and Saskia from Denmark.
I will teach how to create one’s own subbody butoh by subbody buoth method which I illuminated how Hijikata found his own butoh.
I do not choreograph my butoh movement at all. I believe that everybody can create one’s own butoh by this method.
●Listen to qualia
At the first teaching, I started to listen to qualia of the darkness of body.
Because it is the most important thing to create subbody butoh.
What is qualia? Most of students have not heard about this word, and confused.
Qualia is a kind of body feeling about something. But in normal conscious state, we do not notice about qualia.
When we level down our consciousness enough, we can catch the qualia.
We started from meditation. Here is no busy information. We can concentrate to the resonance with very quiet qualia of the Himalayan mountains.

●The effect of Jo-Ha-Kyu
I advised to concern about Jo-Ha-Kyu.
Every movement has own Jo-Ha-Kyu.
Jo is beginning. When a specific qualia stream comes out from subbody, it has the best timing to appear.
Just catch this timing.
Ha is changing. Also every movement has the best timing to change.
From one qualia to other qualia, one dimension to another dimension, it needs to shift in a best timing.
Kyu is climax and ending. To find the best timing to end, we need to develop our dance to the climax.
What is the climax of my butoh? We listen carefully to our subbody.
When our subbody answer us, “Yes, this is the most movement which I want to dance today”. It is sure to today’s Kyu. If not we need to search another movement.
After I adviced about this point, each student’s movement change completely better.
I could reconfirm that Jo-ha-Kyu has so great effect to improve the movement of butoh.

March 17, 2006
●Become subtle body
Today we try to transform to subtle body.
From the speed and size of daily body’s, we reduce our movement into one-hundredth speed and size.
And concentrate to listen to the subtle shift of body qualia stream.
Each student confused to catch such a subtle signal at first. But slowly they succeeded to catch them.
In a tiny butoh movement, there are so many subtle qualia shifts.
For most of student, it seemed the first time which they have heard about this subtle thing.
They confused a lot today. But we have to get used to searching such invisible and unbelievable thing for becoming a explorer of the darkness of body. We need time to be a butoh dancer.
