# Vajra and Harmonic Patterning

Found in ancient illustrations and statues as the thunderbolt of Indra, lightning of Zeus and hammer of Thor, the vajra is believed to represent firmness of spirit and spiritual power. Today, it is used as a symbol for free energy and the electric universe theory.

The most intriguing thing for me about the vajra pattern is it really does have something to do with physics. It resembles the electromagnetic field of a dipole magnet and, in particular, the recursive resonance pattern found in biophotonic fields.

Mathematical modeling of the nonlinear standing wave fields that comprise atoms can be accurately rendered by applying the quadratic function [ zn+1 = zn^2 ] onto the surface of a sphere (right figure). Not surprisingly, this equation is closely related to the famous Mandelbrot Set, expressed as [ zn+1 = zn^2 + c ]. Since the energy in a fertilized embryo can be represented as a spherical electromagnetic field, the double vajra pattern might well provide a guiding harmonic template for growth and evolution.

More than this, the spherical vajra field could also be present in and around the Earth itself, influencing the distribution of tectonic plates and major topological features. Indeed, the vajra may well turn out to be the central "irresistible force" of nature that "can cut anything but cannot be cut itself."

Given that ancient Vedic priests associated the vajra with energy and force, we might wonder if they somehow knew any of this? And if so, how?

Of this we can only speculate. Perhaps ancient priests experimented with natural lodestones, tracing out the fields at either end. Or maybe - just maybe - the vajra appeared in an entheogenic vision, held perhaps by some archetypal entity.
