Hormones for health and happiness

Happiness is the highest form of health. Four hormones determine the perception of happiness. A simple mnemonic to remember them is DOSE.

D-Dopamine; O-Oxytocin; S-Seratonin; E-Endorphins

Dopamine – The reward chemical for motivation. It can be improved by:
* Have a shower
* Eat healthy food
* Sleep well

Oxytocin – The love chemical. It can be improved by:
* Hug loved ones
* Play with kids
* Play with pets
* Be thankful and forgiving

Seratonin – The mood stabilizing chemical.  It can be improved by:
* Spend time with nature
* Do breathing exercises
* Get sunlight

Endorphins-The pain killer and stress relief chemicals.  They can be improved by:
* Walk and stretch
* Smile and laugh often
* Listen to music

Cost of the human body based on constituents

If the human body is broken down into its constituent elements and the cost of the constituents estimated based on 2020 trading rates, the average cost works out to be US$ 0.3822 per kg.

Workings are given below:

NoElementWeight of each element in kgPrice of elementCost breakup in $ totaling% Cost of each element
  (Based on 70 kg human)($/kg)26.78181 


  1. If the water content of the body is costed at the water supply rate, instead of as hydrogen and oxygen, the average cost would drop.
  2. Of the elements whose role in human body functioning is not understood, Rubidium is the largest quantity.
  3. Costliest element found in the human body is Ceasium which is US$ 61,800 /kg.

The objective of this post is to gain an accurate understanding of the average composition of the human body and reflect the numbers accurately. So, the post is open for discussion and comments.

Glitches not explained in reality

  1. Speed of light cannot be exceeded. It is a cosmic limit. It is independent of the speed of the source of light.
  2. Wave/Particle duality – Even matter behaves like a wave
  3. Law of conservation of energy. If everything is energy, nothing can truly ever be created. Energy in is
  4. Quantum entanglement. It is independent of distance. Particles communicate instantly. Reality is non-local, distance is an illusion.
  5. Singularity – center of a black hole. All physical laws break down.
  6. Big bang originated at a singularity.

How insane are these? Glitches are only strange if reality is viewed as material.

The nature of reality:

  • Mathematical reality
  • Mind based, mental existence
  • Shared experience, collective consciousness
  • Based on code
  • Not a simulation

Big-bang explanation – Mental energy being transformed into matter

Energy is in waves. Matter created from energy retains attributes of a wave.

Like in a bike game on a PC, the perception of distance is an illusion. Distance is a perception in the mind which also acts as a singularity.

Everything can happen in the background by coding.

Light is made of Bosons, which do not take up space. Bosons do not have a size because they do not occupy space. Size of a boson is not measurable.

Mind and thoughts are like Bosons.

Light is mind. Light and mind are the foundations of existence.

Philosopher Dr. Thomas Stark said

The singularity that precedes the big band is a singularity of pure light.

Pure light = pure mathematics = pure mind

Light, ontologically, is what unextended mathematics actually is. The big bang is a light event, a mental event. In particular, the big band involves the breaking of perfect symmetry of light. “Matter” is broken light…asymmetric light, recalcitrant, sluggish thought.

This reality is created by slow sluggish thought, frozen light.

Physicist David Baum said:

The universe consists of frozen light and this ocean of energy could be thought of as an ocean of light.

What all these show (singularity, properties of light, law of conservation of energy, quantum entanglement ) is that everything is connected, all is mind, all is eternal.

We can never die. Physical bodies may perish.

What we truly beings of the mind. The fundamental eternal substance of existence is the mind -it can never be destroyed.

The mind is in a spiraling trajectory of evolution.

Mind is the fundamental eternal substance that can never be destroyed.

When existence is forced into a paradigm of materialism (everything is physical), we are faced with all these paradoxes and inconsistencies and errors.


Above notes were extracted from a video by Morgue.


Notes to self: Matter is “putrid” energy. “Putrefaction” of energy and conversion to matter is influenced by collective consciousness. Thus, observer influences the matter. Matter retains the attributes of energy to enable reconversion. After released by the observer’s consciousness, the matter returns to energy.

Indirajaal – Indira’s net

“Far away in the heavenly abode of the great god Indra, there is a wonderful net which has been hung by some cunning artificer in such a manner that it stretches out indefinitely in all directions. In accordance with the extravagant tastes of deities, the artificer has hung a single glittering jewel at the net’s every node, and since the net itself is infinite in dimension, the jewels are infinite in number. There hang the jewels, glittering like stars of the first magnitude, a wonderful sight to behold. If we now arbitrarily select one of these jewels for inspection and look closely at it, we will discover that in its polished surface there are reflected all the other jewels in the net, infinite in number. Not only that, but each of the jewels reflected in this one jewel is also reflecting all the other jewels, so that the process of reflection is infinite. The Hua’yen school [of Buddhism] has been fond of this image, mentioned many times in its literature, because it symbolizes a cosmos in which there is an infinitely repeated interrelationship among all the members of the cosmos. This relationship is said to be one of simultaneous mutual identity and mututal intercausality.”

~ Francis H. Cook, Hua-yen Buddhism: The Jewel Net of Indra


Also see: Atharva Veda 8.8.8


Some three thousand years ago or more, this ancient numinous
image of the Cosmos was first expressed in the sacred Indian text of the
Atharvaveda and termed Indra’s net; it was the means by which the Vedic
deity Indra, god of the heavens, created the appearance of the whole
world. Now, its revelation of integral reality and self-reflection at all
scales of existence is being rediscovered and restated in a less poetic but
equally majestic and scientifically based language.

Jude Currivan, The Cosmic Hologram


There are several aspects of Indra’s Net, that signify it as a crystal clear allegory of reality:

  1. The Holographic Nature of the Universe

Long before the existence of the hologram, the jeweled net is an excellent description of the special characteristic of holograms: that every point of the hologram contains information regarding all other points. This reflective nature of the jewels is an obvious reference to this.

This kind of analogy has been suggested by science as a theory for an essential characteristic of the cosmos, as well as as the functioning of the human brain, as beautifully described inThe Holograpic Universe by Michael Talbot.

  1. The Interconnectedness of All Thingss

When any jewel in the net is touched, all other jewels in the node are affected. This speaks to the hidden interconnectedness and interdependency of everything and everyone in the universe, and has an indirect reference to the concept of “Dependent Origination” in Buddhism. Additionally, Indra’s Net is a definitive ancient correlate of Bell’s Theorum, or the theory of non-local causes.

  1. Lack of a substantive self

Each node, representing an individual, simply reflects the qualities of all other nodes, inferring the notion of ‘not-self’ or a lack of a solid and real inherent self, as seen in the Advaita Vedanta school of Hinduism and Buddhism in general.

  1. Non-locality

Indra’s Net shoots holes in the assumption or imputation of a solid and fixed universe ‘out there’. The capacity of one jewel to reflect the light of another jewel from the other edge of infinity is something that is difficult for the linear mind, rational mind to comprehend. The fact that all nodes are simply reflections indicates that there is no particular single source point from where it all arises.

  1. Innate Wisdom

The ability to reflect the entirety of all light in the universe attests to the inherent transcendant wisdom that is at the core of all nodes, representing all sentient beings, and to the inherent Buddha Nature.

  1. Illusion or Maya

The fact that all nodes are simply a reflection of all others implies the illusory nature of all appearances. Appearances are thus not reality but a reflection of reality.

  1. Universal Creativity

A familiar concept in various high dharmas is one of an impersonal creative intelligence that springs forth into reality through the instruments of all living beings.

  1. The Mirror-like Nature of Mind

The capacity to reflect all things attests to the mind being a mirror of reality, not its basis. This is a common thesis among various schools and religions.

Notes on consciousness

  1. If there are three observers at 0 c, 0.5 c and 0.9999 c, their observations of the universe would be different. This is relativity. If observers see the same universe differently, then how can the universe be said to have a single nature?
  2. If a universe cannot have a single nature that it can present consistently to all observers, then there can be no unified theory of everything. If there is nothing fixed to refer to, then there is no standing ground for a theory. To arrive at the theory of everything, experience of constant existence at all frame of reference would be necessary. Interpretation of an observer at 0 c of the experience at 0.5 c, may not necessarily be true for the observer at 0.5 c.
  3. Thought experiment: Can relativity be applied on to quantum fields? If the large hadron collider is moving is at 0.9999 c with respect to the observer, would the experimental results still be valid?
  4. There are two different states of unconsciousness:
    • Death state of unconsciousness: Atman/Soul has left the body and reengagement with mind/body is not expected. Person is truly dead and appears so.
    • Pre-death state of unconsciousness: Atma/Soul has not left the body and reengagement with mind/body is possible. Person appears dead or in a coma to the world but is not truly dead.
  5. In between the two states of unconsciousness, pre-death and death, exists the clue to understand the bare essential functioning of the soul/atman. In this free state, the soul remains closer to its pure form, without having the need to engage the constructs of mind or the sense organs or the world outside or the need to look for a different body to live-in next.
  6. Like a person is standing at the door step of the house from where he can go inwards or outwards, the soul is free to engage the mind in the subtle body and go inwards into a given body and its experience or abandon the current body and seek another body more suited to the current evolved needs of the subtle body. If the current needs are zero, there should be no need for another body.
  7. When the soul decides to “go inside the house” by engaging the mind and the current body, the rules for extent of such engagement must be set. The sages (gyani) who study the soul (not so much the world) say that this engagement must be limited for it doesn’t matter how big the house and how deep one goes into it, the exit must happen. The scientists (vigyani) who study the world (not so much the soul) say this engagement must be maximum, for this one freak opportunity to learn the world should not be wasted. The sage says do not engage, for engagement creates karma and births. The scientist says engage with all your might or else your only go at life would be wasted.
  8. The scientists says, the universe is eternal but consciousness comes and goes. The sage says, consciousness is eternal and the universe comes and goes.

So, what are you? Are you a blip of consciousness that will be forever extinguished at death? Or are you eternal consciousness that will repeatedly come and go into the playground of universe till you learn to destroy your ego and burn your karma?

What is your world view? A fixed universe with random meaningless blips of consciousness and life forms? Or an eternal consciousness soul that craves for varying experiences in a semi-real universe?
