Tame a lightning bolt – and you have the Innate Force contained in the human brain.
The universe is filled with natural forms of energy. learned to adapt the electricity showcased in a In fact, astronomers say that the universe was lightning bolt to our purposes. actually created by a burst of energy which pre¬dated all matter. The "big bang" theory is still being debated, but we need no theories to witness energy at work around us. Wind rushes through the trees, water
cascades down a mountain, lightning streaks through the sky, solar radiation heats our earth. For the most part, these environmental forces co¬exist peacefully with all life forms. At times, however, they demonstrate their magnificent power and destructive potential. The wind increases to hurricane velocity and rips roofs off houses; floodwaters carry off buildings and uproots trees; lightning splits open giant trees and sets off raging fires. Such destruction can seem "meaningless" and we often talk about "Mother Nature going crazy." But scientists and environmentalists now acknowledge that the devastation has its purpose in the natural scheme of things. A fire started by lightning, for example, is an efficient way to thin a stand of trees. When a forest becomes overgrown, the lush vegetation cuts sunlight off at the ground level, making it impossible for new seedlings to grow. The "destruction" of a fire provides the new generation of trees the light and compost it will need if the forest is to survive. When that same forest is "managed" by humans, the naturally-set fires are often extinguished. Then, these same caretakers deliberately set fires to do the job the extinguished fire would have done. There is a purpose to the fires, and to the hurricanes and floods. There is an order to their appearance, and an intelligence to their functioning. The Universal Intelligence "knows" that forests need thinning, and using the Universal Matter available to it to accomplish this. The link which enables the intelligence to use the matter is natural energy, or Universal Forces. For most of human history, the best we could do was try to stay out of the way of these forces. In modern times, our educated minds have developed means of adapting them for constructive purposes. We build wind-powered generators, hydroelectric plants, irrigation canals, dams, and solar heating panels to harness these energy sources. We've even Living things are like microcosms of the universe. We've seen how they are each endowed with a portion of the Universal Intelligence, called the Innate Intelligence. They also possess the "specialized" version of Universal Forces, which chiropractors call Innate Energy. Our Innate Intelligence takes the Universal Force of electricity and adapts it for constructive use, just as our educated minds have adapted natural forces. The fact that the human body runs on electricity is well-documented. Many medical testing instruments actually record and measure the electrical impulses which are generated (or, some say, converted from some other source) by our brain for use in the body. There may also be other innate forces at work in our bodies that we have not yet identified, but electricity is the one we have proven to exist. Because Innate Energy is being adapted in our body by the Innate Intelligence, it can never be destructive. That can only occur in "wild" Universal forces which have not been tamed by innate intelligence. Also, since it is created and directed by the Innate Intelligence, there is 100% of the Innate Energy needed by each particular living thing. The energy is needed to impel the cells to function according to the wishes of the intelligence. In nature, matter remains inert until energy is applied. The air and water remains stagnant, and the internal molecular structure of the tree stays stable – until energy is applied. Only then do changes occur in the matter which cause motion and function. So it is in the body. The Innate Intelligence cannot manipulate matter without energy. The muscles cannot expand or contract in accordance with the instructions of Innate Intelligence unless energy is present. In fact, in the absence of Innate Energy, the body ceases to function – ceases to live. Innate Energy, then, serves as the vital link which enables the intelligence to express itself through matter. The three elements, taken together, form the Triune of Life, one of the most important concepts in chiropractic philosophy.
