New Technology — A Mixed Blessing

[Excerpt from TT: 2004-12-12]

[upstaate] How much importance is it to have magnetic energy work to our physical beings in lieu of all the technology surrounding our environments? How much of this new technology that we have……i.e.; cell phones, power lines, microwaves, etc….affects our physical bodies and is it harming us? New Age science says that we need magnetic energy work to balance what is affecting us… “bombardment” is what they call it.

[Tibtyc] I had the same question… Are they dangerous?

[Michael_Entity] Is your final question about magnetic therapies or about the effects of your electronic society?

[upstaate] both

[Michael_Entity] We will respond to both, then.

In response to the question of whether these energies are harmful to the human body, we would say that they are, though on fairly low levels and not any more harmful than the effects of your own Sun. In fact, we would say that certain rays of your Sun are more harmful than most electronic systems in which you must move. And while we do not trivialize the question, we would also say that most individual belief systems are even more harmful to the body than the Sun, diet, or Electronic influences. We include that statement merely as a means to put the term “harmful” into perspective.

We have seen no validity to the use of magnets as treatments or preventions against electronic influences, but this is because the concept is limited at this point in development. The theories are flawed.

The human body is highly adaptable, which is why it was chosen by your sentience. The bombardment of energy within a technological society is usually proportional to the adaptability of the body.

The most detrimental aspect of your technological progress isn’t found in the “waves”, but in the difficulty adapting to the glut of information that is accessible to you. The human psyche has not adapted well to the amount of information and input that is available. This is not to say that it will not adapt, but if there is an effect of detriment to the human, it is on the psyche, not the physical body.

Of the energies you described earlier in your question, “microwaves” are the only energies we have seen to have an immediate and long-term effect on the physical body. The use of a microwave for cooking food appears to destroy nutritional value and suppress the Pineal Gland’s function.

[Tibtyc] Where does this put the Internet?

[Michael_Entity] Ironically, what has come to be known as the Internet, with its immediate access to massive amounts of information, has the greatest potential for implementing the adaptation of the human psyche. This is because the Internet, as it becomes available to the average person, will eventually encourage the refinement of the individual’s search for information.

[upstaate] so, are we what we think or believe then, and only that?

[Michael_Entity] It is more than a cliché to say that you are what you think. We would agree with that.
