The third Global Energy Parliament was held in Paris, France on 26-27 September 2012 at the Adyar Theatre. The function was inaugurated by the First Secretary for Press, Information and Culture of the Indian Ambassador Ms. Apoorva Srivastava. Dr. Kiran Vyas, Chairman of GEP France, welcomed the guests.
In her inaugural address, Ms. Srivastava conveyed the Ambassador’s best wishes for the successful conduct of the session, and hoped the Global Energy Parliament would throw new light on many of the complicated problems faced by humanity.
Mr. Velu “Paris” Viswanadhan, a renowned visual artist, expressed his appreciation and support for the Parliament, calling it a creative and necessary approach to problems being faced by modern societies around the world.
In the Founder’s Address, His Holiness Jagadguru Swami Isa shared the great vision of the Global Energy Parliament as bringing together specialists from different countries as Members of Parliament in a spirit of universal brotherhood to discuss global problems and their solutions based on the science of energy presented in the I-Theory.
Swamiji stated that the scientific study of space and sound will help to bring about a potential change in the world’s environment, as he looks upon sound as the quality or expression of space. Each vibration has a sound, and as vibrations are omnipresent in the universe, sound is also omnipresent. Thus through the sound, anything and everything can be analysed and changed.
Studying sounds in all fields can help to effect the most potent changes, since it is the subtlest medium of interaction. A very important field is education, Swamiji said, where the learning process is inseparable from the use of spoken and written sounds. Studies ought to be conducted on the effects of all world languages during the learning process, and understanding the efficacy of written versus spoken sounds in both transmitting information (as the teacher) and receiving it (as the student). Moreover, the types of sounds uttered in learning should be categorized according to positive sound energy and negative sound energy, so as to understand which sounds should be used during teaching, and their effects upon the students’ physical, emotional and intellectual energies.
As the energy crisis an increasingly worrisome problem worldwide, Swamiji suggested that engineers should find a solution by converting sound energy into electricity. In the present-day scenario of new technologies and new materials, Swamiji feels that the old beliefs about the limitations of sound energy are not holding true today, and should be explored once again in the contemporary context. This is the important contribution that GEP can make to the world energy crisis, he concluded.
Following the inaugural ceremony, there were four sessions held on Sound Energy in the following portfolios: Healthcare, Education and Research, Environment and Agriculture, and Economy.
Sylvie Simon, a journalist specializing in Health, argued that to understand the root of a disease, the fundamental sounds of the human system and of the treatments or medicines can provide answers. Dr. Folker Meissner, Medical Doctor and Founder of the German Academy of Energy Medicine and Bio-energetics (DAEMBE) and Chairman of GEP Germany, presented a non-invasive healing technique called “Audio-Balance,” based on the correlation between light, sound and the human system which leads to harmony between both hemispheres of the human brain. He said tht more research on this and other methodologies should be promoted. Dr. Kiran Vyas, Founder of Tapovan Centres for Yoga and Ayurveda in Europe explained the presence of five elements (or pancha mahabhuta) in the universe which are also present in the individual. A greater understanding of the sounds of the five elements, as well as the three constitutions of the human system and the five doshas, or layers of the human body, can contribute greatly to modern medicine. Dr. Uwe Reuter, Medical Director of the Clinic “Im Leben” in Greiz, Germany, presented a personal electrotherapy device using ultrasound waves (between 4 to 12 kilohertz) to address pain problems. Dr. Alain Didier-Weill, Medical Doctor and Psychiatrist from France, presented the effects of sounds on the development of newborn babies. Dr. Hervé Staub, specialist in clinical Phyto-aromatherapy, Chromotherapy and Oligotherapy from France, elaborated on Dr. Meissner’s discussion about the synergy of sound and colour.
Education and Research
Dr. M.R. Thampan, GEP Secretary and Director of the Kerala State Institute of Languages, presented Swami Isa’s educational methodology, “Education for Total Consciousness”. A Lesson Plan was introduced by the IVPT, using the ETC methodology while explaining how sound energy is used in education. Sounds in education can be either beneficial or destructive to students, depending on how they are used. In ETC, sounds build a bridge between outer facts and figures to knowledge about the student’s inner self. They urged more educators in Europe to be trained in the ETC methodology, especially on the uses of positive sounds for educational process. Prof. Trân Quang Hai, the Vietnamese-French musicologist and expert in overtone singing, explained this vocal technique where two sounds are produced simultaneously. Such sounds can be used on the therapeutic plane to balance human beings. He demonstrated the seven basic vowels that correspond to the seven different energy centres (chakras). Dominique Lussan, president of Harmonic Vision, a research and development centre on states of consciousness and the creation of global value in France, discussed the importance to a community of “listening” to the total needs of a human being and nature. Anton Stucki, President of the German energy technology company Mundus Gmbh, presented a holographic speaker system, which reproduces the way that sound is produced in a natural state. The singer and voice teacher Mitchélée expressed the importance of the experience of the unheard as well as the absolute necessity to promote the access to sound experience through the body, to improvise through sound or music, as well as to express oneself freely through artistic experience, regardless of gender, religion, nationality, social and professional environment. Sylvie and Gérard Nach, therapists from France, presented their research based on traditional techniques connected to sound, through the use of voice, Japanese or Tibetan bowls, gongs, etc., to balance the vital energy and subtle planes of the human being.
Environment and Agriculture
Science journalist Maxence Layet presented electroculture and magnetoculture, known for more than a century, which utilize the electromagnetic energy present in nature to stimulate the growth of plants, to reinforce blossoming and germinating, to purify soils, etc.
Prof. Joel Sternheimer, a theoretical physicist from France, demonstrated his research which shows that different levels of organisation of matter, inert or living, are connected by scale waves, which ensure their coherence. During the process of protein synthesis, amino acids emit sequences of quantum signals, which can be audibly heard as a different melody specific to each protein. Pedro Ferrandiz, Biologist and Agro-food Engineer, is President of Genodics, a company which uses the proteodies (protein melodies) developed by Prof. Sternheimer to enhance agriculture production. Jacques Antonin, a French researcher in Human and Earth Sciences, explained the connections between the I-Theory and the double vortex in the role of the plant kingdom, the human being and the future of the planet.
Sustainable and Positive Economy
Adv. Nicolas Granier presented the International Assizes of Happiness, an initiative of the International Observatory for Happiness (OIB). The OIB is an organisation created by lawyers from the Ecole de Formation des Avocats Centre Sud (South Centre Lawyer Training School), aiming at establishing a participative and positive approach in legal professions, especially by ensuring the promotion of human values during the legal training. Adv. Julien Gueguen-Carroll, presented his online social networks WeLawU (international) and Vox-avocats (France), which are community service and community-building networks for lawyers. His goal was to use the popularity of social networks for the constructive aim of promoting good human values in lawyers.
A cultural session was held on the 26th evening with performances and discussions by notable world musicians. Performers included the renowned French concert pianist Marc Vella, specialist of traditional Indian music Marylène Ingremeau, and Mitchélée, who also interpreted a poem by His Holiness Swami Isa on the occasion.
Based on the proposals forwarded by the Members at the session, subsequent discussions and Cabinet review, the Resolutions of the 2012 Global Energy Parliament were presented by GEP France Coordinator Clara Cressy, and approved by the House.
The 2012 GEP Energy Award was awarded to Prof. Joel Sternheimer for his landmark research on Proteodies. He has invented protein melodies for the human system, which can influence protein synthesis rates, an achievement that has large implications in botany, biology and medicine.
The book by His Holiness Swami Isa entitled Sound: Wonder of Wonders was officially released and presented to each Member.
