A description of the experience
Lyall Watson – The Nature of things
Every inorganic element consists …. of a characteristic 3 dimensional framework or lattice of atoms, whose precise architecture depends on the element’s purity. Perfection is rare and the presence of any impurity disturbs the pattern and the electrical balance of a substance in ways which make it unstable and open to adjustment by the environment. In short, this condition – known as the ‘defect state’ – provides a way of trapping and storing incoming information. There is, in Don Robins’ words ‘rogue energy in the heart of the crystal’ and a suspicion that this could function as a rudimentary form of inorganic memory [Source: D Robbins – The Secret Language of Stones]
Impure crystals … soon come to throb with the storage music of these wild spirits which can be trapped and held captive for thousands of years. But they can also be persuaded, in certain circumstances, to release their energies and the information these contain, on demand.
It is this property in silicon that is at the heart of all computing.
Robins suggests that all stone, which is after all largely crystalline, should be seen as a sort of macrochip. A natural, if somewhat haphazard system capable of storing energies and given the right circumstances, playing it back later. It is fascinating to learn from recent discoveries in microelectronics that patterns at the heart of the crystal lattice are disturbed by sound waves almost as easily as they are by electrical energy
………. Some crystals just happen to be natural accousto-electric amplifiers
