"The fiery offerings say to the person, "Come here,
come higher" and lead him through the rays of the Sun
honoring him and greeting him pleasantly. This is holy Heaven
of Brahm which you have attained by your virtuous deeds. "
the Prayer at BurningMan.
For millennium fire has been and is a source
of life and a necessity. The earliest recorded rituals centered
around fire. Fire was and is a gathering point for groups
and communities. The entire universe, in a sense, revolves
around fire, our sun, the galaxies, the heat required for
cosmic chemistry and alchemy. The body itself needs fire to
survive in the form of a constant temperature of 98° Fahrenheit.
Even ice is made from fire in the form of thermodynamic heat
exchange. Fire magnetizes as it consumes. It draws things
inward. It draws people towards itself unlike anything else.
Indeed it has been worshiped throughout time. And that is
not surprising. As fire unites us, it reminds us of our deep
elemental roots, our connection to the universe of pure energy.
Somehow, a modern, post-theocratic form of fire ritual developed
around the yearly art festival known as BurningMan. Close
to forty thousand people attend this event in the Nevada desert
every year. It has become a kind of American Khumba Mehla.
Drawn around the burning of a giant man, throngs of people
celebrate, gyrate, dance, pray and scream. All are unified
by the intense fire. You simply have to go there to feel what
I’m talking about. It is awesome. If there were instrumentation
for measuring the energy yield of all this taken together,
the dial would shoot off the scale. This is why this energy
can be useful for amplifying a well crafted positive prayer.
It’s cosmic nitro. Plain and simple.
And now we combine this intention and this energy source with
a quartz crystal energy grid.
have found their place in electronics as sources of highly
refined and consistent oscillators, for time keeping and other
forms of precise timing and storage applications.
Quartz crystals have also been used for centuries by various
shamanic groups to focus and amplify intention for healing
and divination. Quartz crystals have been used in science
projects for generations for their ability to focus radio
waves in order to help pull in radio transmissions for youth
radio projects. I built one of these radios when I was a Cub
Quartz crystals were also used by an IBM scientist I met in
1974, Marcel Vogel.
research into the therapeutic application of quartz crystals
led him to the investigation of the relationship between crystals
and water. He discovered that he could structure water by
spinning it around a tuned crystal, altering many of the characteristics
of the water and converting it into an information storage
ability of crystals to store information is widely
known. According to the September 4, 1994, issue of Newsweek,
Stanford University physicists have demonstrated the first
fully digital model of a device that stores information as
a hologram within the subatomic structure of a crystal. The
scientists were able to store and retrieve a holographic image
of the Mona Lisa. The particular crystal held only 163 kilobytes
of memory, but it is expected that these holographic units
could store up to one million megabytes. The short article
says that crystals store information in three dimensions and
could be ten times faster than the fastest systems currently
discovered that the greatest cohering agent is love.
This, of course, set him apart from his fellow scientists.
At a time when many still don’t acknowledge that an
observer affects what they are observing, the notion of love
was a totally unscientific idea. Even when cloaked in the
garb of a term like resonance it was unacceptable. To Marcel,
love was (and is) a pure force. Certainly we experience it
as an emotion, but this is our experience of something that
is beyond emotion. He likened it to gravity, an attracting
and cohering force present at every level of existence. Without
this relationship an important aspect of scientific investigation
is missing, preventing us from discovering and exploring the
more, perhaps most, subtle aspects of life.”

Together with the focused intention of the prayer
and the tremendous physic battery energy of the burn, the
amplification effect can easily be beyond measure.
in computer hardrive science so too in the metaphysics of
thought hardrives. Arrays are indispensable to achieving errorless
high efficiencies. An array and careful placement of the crystals
is crucial to exploiting this potential. Because of the success
demonstrated by triangular, pyramidal energy constructs, as
in the great pyramid at Giza, I suggest arranging the crystals
in a triangulated fashion. Land Artist, Bill Witherspoon,
has demonstrated the unusual properties of giant desert geometrical
shapes such as the ancient Shri Yantra, on desert wildlife
and human consciousness. Bill

next step is to set up a simple energy grid partially within
the structure of the "man" of BurningMan. Bill Witherspoon's
work gives some proof that enrgy grids based on triangulated
structures create a bio-energy field that magnetizes living
things. It works for thought as well. At
the man's head, or highest point, a crystal would be placed.
Surrounding this, would be a grid of 4 crystals set at the
base of the imaginary pyramid, at approximately the proportions
of the Pyramid at Giza.
These four base crystals would reside outside of the structure
of the man and be either mobile or planted in the playa soil
and marked without causing a hazzard. A few people who may
elect to hold these crystals at the time of the burn are encouraged
to focus on the prayer.
The heat generated by the burn would likely explode the crystal
at the man, but by then, it will have already accomplished
During the burning of the man, the intention, in the form
of the prayer indicated here, is held with intense passion
in the minds of those seeking its fulfillment. Anyone wishing
to join in on this intention is welcome. The only thing asked
is unwavering concentration on the prayer intention, as it
is written here.
Participants can be located anywhere as a matter of fact.
The burning of the man is usually carried on a live webcam
at the main BurningMan web
site, September 1, 2006 around 9pm PST.
