Robin Kelly- The Human Aerial


In one instance, after treatment a lady returned home in a state of bliss, and informed her family,

‘I heard the angels sing.’ Later I asked her what precisely she had experienced; was she talking metaphorically? ‘In fact,’ she explained, ‘I heard nothing, but the metaphor of the song best conveyed the experience. I felt a joyful harmony, a sense that I was resonating with the universe and was part of a divine song. The joy lingered for an hour or two and then faded. It came unasked and unexpectedly, as a blessing, but in that moment I was both the dancer and the dance.’

This of course is not the usual consequence of acupuncture treatment, but it seems to be cited as an example of how it assists in attuning a client to a proper order of things. Robin describes how he had been using this procedure every day in his practice and was curious about the science behind it. In talking about his investigations, he clearly describes for the layman the gist of scientific speculation based on the solid foundation of validated mathematics of QM physics. It is sound speculation but not proven fact, and thus Robin often rightly presents the material in the form of questions: “Could it be the case that…?”

The prevailing theme in the book is the connectedness of all things. He writes:

In the Auguries of Innocence William Blake invites us: To see the world in a grain of sand, And heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.” Somehow, one-and-a-half centuries before Dennis Gabor’s discovery [in 1971 that if a corner were cut from a holographic plate, and subjected to another laser beam, the whole image could still be recovered], William Blake had decided that we live in a holographic universe, within a world of patterns whose origins existed beyond the reach of our five senses. [page 45]

Robin explores the symbolism of the Caduceus.

“The symmetrical twin serpents of the Caduceus represents the balancing of energies at the different levels of the body; the goal of the acupuncturist was to help the patient achieve an ideal balanced state by easing the exchange of energy between the body and nature.” [p.62] “The chakras were not the product of rational scientific thought. Rather they were recognised intuitively.”

The same may be said of the acupuncture points of Chinese medicine. Interestingly Descartes [1596-1650], who symbolises reductionism, “meditated for three hours every morning, and attributed the development of his theories… to a combination of rationality and intuition.”

Kelly examines the human DNA as a superconductor and as an aerial. “Our understanding of DNA deepens, as we perceive it as a vital link between our earth-bound mortal/physical body and the more ethereal realms of our immortal, timeless soul.”[p.74]. He discusses Near Death and Out of the Body Experiences; the importance of prayer and intent; Tuning in to the Dead; the Gift of Mediumship; Precognition.

The bulk of the book is devoted to healing and wholeness at all levels of development, and many doctors as well as lay people will find much to stimulate thought.

Towards the end of the book, on page 313, Albert Einstein is quoted:

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.

We have created a society that honours the servant, and has forgotten the gift.
