Spiro Ergo Sum – The Practice of Pranayama
The Practice of Pranayama and the Theory of Relativity — Within and Outside the Laboratory.
The Weaving of Space Along With Energy — Re-Moving Energy.
Notes on Breath, Space and Energy.
In long-term search for referential Space, the path eventually led to India and to
Yoga. How do breath, body, mind, soul, consciousness and geometry connect?
Spiro ergo sum is a book on the practice of Pranayama, the ancient yogic
balancing act towards a slow, steady and normal breath flow. Thus, it is a
practice towards highly conscious concerning Energy and Space, physical and
spatial. Breath is undeniably at the core of life and at the foundation of relativity.
In the year 2018, the Theory of Relativity is proven to be valid even on galactic
scale (referring to evidence-based research, further elaborated in the text.)
Ultimately everything is Energy. In Space, on that galactic scale, Earth is a place
bathing in the light and heat radiating from the Solar centre. Thus, Earth is a
place where duality comes into intricate play through the human perception,
both inside and outside the solid physical laboratory. The body is a laboratory.
The flow of breath is connecting the Space inside and the Space outside.
Spiro ergo sum is not a book on the history of Pranayama, its varieties and
techniques. It is developed in the line of connecting the magnitudes of Space and
Energy and the practice of Pranayama with updated scientific reports from a
wide field. How can the “I” digest the Theory of Relativity properly on different
layers and levels?
Spiro ergo sum is thus a philosophical-physical deep-dive connected to the lifebreath
of the receiving, responding and responsible end: The “I” is undeniably
both a collection and a singularity at the core of relativity. Handed over to the
practitioner of any field for further exploration and contemplation, it is not a
topology of the hole, rather a light on the whole topology. Because, in the human
game of Hide & Seek and of Trial & Error: If the Theory of Relativity is valid, if
everything ultimately is Energy, the remaining question can only be:
How far do “I” have to go to realize Space?
