Overshadowed by a second aura when committing a crime
Tenet of the 12-step programs
Following fable, an old Vedic story about Prana to be found in various Upanishads, reflects on the ordinary human state in which the different faculties are not integrated and therefore fight with each other, competing for attention.
|The five main faculties of human nature – speech, eye, ear, mind, and breath (prana) – were arguing with each other as to which one of them was the best and most important. To resolve their dispute they decided that each would leave the body and see whose absence was most missed.|
|1.||First speech left the body but the body continued||though mute.|
|2.||Next the eye left but the body continued||though blind.|
|3.||Next the ear left but the body continued||though deaf.|
|4.||When the mind left but the body continued||though unconscious.|
|5.||Finally the prana began to leave and |
the body began to die and
|all the other faculties began |
to lose their energy.
|So they all rushed to Prana and told it to stay, lauding its supremacy. |
Clearly Prana won the argument. Prana gives energy to all our faculties, without which they cannot function. Without honoring Prana first, there is nothing else we can do, and no energy with which to do anything.

[T]he Urim and Thummim [...] shall be upon Aaron's heart when he goeth before the Lord: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before the Lord continually. Exodus 28, 30 (OT)
Urim and Thummim are described as flat crystals or transparent gems. High priests of the Hebrew Temples held the red Urim and the green Thummim over their eyes like spectacles. This apparently induced visionary images. Urim and Thummim influenced the visual processing of colors to occur as a stereo blending between the eyes rather than for each eye separately prior to reaching the visual cortex where colors are recognized. By separating the brain's signal processing of red and green through the red-green cones of each eye's retina, the color yellow is synthesized in the visual cortex as a stereoscopic function. When combined with the intake of entheogens, psychoacoustics, symbolism and meditation, such a stereoscopic stimulation of the visual cortex could have assisted in synthesizing visual constructs.
Studies of psychedelics have confirmed that red and green (or else pink and chartruse) colors are perceived as superimposed with patterning in the visual field:
Viewing the faces of other people in the room, the subject observed red and green glowing lines crossing their faces horizontally but following the contours of the face. […]
Whenever the subject closed his eyes, he was presented with a dazzling array of colours and patterns. Most of the patterns were of a repetitive nature, resembling mandalas. The predominant colours were red and green and the predominant patterns were formed from circles and octagons.
