The Power of Crystals

I have noticed that I get a great many e-mails telling us about the "power of the crystal" and how this great power can enable us to travel through time with effortless ease. Therefore we decided to investigate this more thoroughly and present our findings.

The crystal has been a source of wonder and veneration since the dawn of time. Man has been mesmerized by its clear beauty, its perfect symmetry, its glowing colours, and its apparent perfection of shape and form. All these have spell-bound thousands of people across thousands of years. Ancient people used to worship such crystals and consider them to be their gods. They would bow down before such crystals and pray to them and carry them into battle with them when they fought against their enemies.

Today we know that the crystal (any crystal) is a set of atoms that possess what we in the scientific trade call "translational symmetry". This symmetry gives rise to the properties that crystals have and there is an entire branch of science devoted to the study of crystal vibrations, a branch of science called "lattice dynamics". Thus the "power of science" or the study of lattice dynamics has subdued the power of the crystal and now crystals are used to make watches keep time and do many other useful things.

Now some people have sent us full scale diagrams of time machines that they have built in their garages and garden sheds that are driven by this "crystal power" and we have studied such diagrams in great detail but have always found these time machines to be somewhat under-powered. In fact, in terms of raw power, although the crystal contains a certain amount of quantum zero point energy there is very little else that it contains that could be used to power a practical large scale time machine. Sad but true.

I am aware of the large number of people that feel crystals have special powers but my view is that it's a placebo, just like faith healers or medically proven experiments where the test subjects getting the placebo feel positive benefit.

Of course if you think that our point of view is somewhat arrogant and wish to debate our conclusions then we would be more than happy to hear from you - so please drop us an e-mail - we are, after all, all here to learn more from each other.

If you wish to do your own research then I recommend the following books:

 

CRYSTAL POWER, CRYSTAL HEALING: THE COMPLETE HANDBOOK (BOOK)

This unique book examines the basic principles underpinning crystal healing. The result of twelve years' research and personal study, author Michael Gienger presents here an exhaustive examination of the proposed therapeutic properties of crystals.

CRYSTAL POWER: MYTHOLOGY AND HISTORY (BOOK)

Minerals and crystals have been closely associated with human cultural progress throughout recorded history. This book reveals the long-standing significance, high-regard and use in therapy and healing of stones, crystals and gems - from the earliest civilisations such as Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt, through the classical world of Greece and Rome and into medieval European cultures. In addition, there is a comprehensive appendix, in which minerals and crystals are listed with their respective mineralogical, historical, astrological and healing properties.
