"Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics." ~ Albert Einstein
"We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us." ~ Churchill
To Understand the science of space in a simple way, we need to know that everything in this universe is energy. Everything we see and what we have not seen is an infinite manifestation of a single fundamental force. This is a basic premise described in most of the ancient Hindu scriptures like the Upanishads. Even quantum physics is now saying that at the fundamental level even atoms, electrons and protons are just energy.
Then we need to understand that every physical manifestation of the universe, a colour, a shape, a volume, a material, a form, an animal, a bird, a human being has an energy counterpart. Some inanimate physical manifestations like stone, brick, etc., have a subtler energy counterpart whereas an animal or a bird will have a much more complex energy form associated to them. A Human being however has an extremely sophisticated energy body which has many layers of data integrated to it. This Human energy body is a large accumulation of data.
It is like a complex software which is integrated with unimaginable amounts of memory that has been stored within it at different levels and layers all linked to each other. But, Together with all its layers and memory, let us call it a “Subtle body”. This subtle body influences the world around it, at the same time it is also influenced by different things around. How any person’s subtle body is structured has a huge impact on the physical world around including health, wealth, well-being, relationships, etc., So it is extremely important to keep the subtle body in a right positive way to live a happy and positive life. Now, we know that on average a person spends about 90 per cent of his life within enclosed buildings. Think about it. For most of our lives, we are either in our homes or in our workspaces.
Hence the buildings we build have a tremendous influence on our physical and psychological well-being. Although many firms and architects across the world are now speaking about sustainability, energy usage, etc., I feel that Spiritual science relating to architecture is a much more important subject that almost no one is talking about or studying in depth. The ancient science of Vastu Shastra was just about how to properly design the buildings and spaces to optimize the energy fields of said spaces so that the field is compatible and beneficial for the subtle bodies of people who use it and to the purpose for which the building was built. Now almost no one understands the ancient science to its depth and unfortunately most of the so-called experts/gurus that I have come across in this field are all half-baked.
Optimizing our spaces in terms of Energy is an important part of the architecture, Modern civilization has largely ignored this. However many ancient cultures studied this in detail and have documented the same.
It is time we learn from our ancestors and live in spaces that are optimized for human well-being. This can be done in various ways. At Furgonomics, We wish to study and implement this and be the pioneers of Energy - Architecture in the 21st century...
