Modern Quantum and Ethological Scientific
Gaze can fascinate, enchant…
From the oldest times there have been people that used the power of
gaze: yogis, hypnotists, priests, leaders. Their gaze was stronger
as their words. Their conscience “touched” the conscience of other
people, and transmitted emotions and thoughts in other spirits
What is behind it?
We try now to give you a brief possible account of the power of the
gaze in a more scientific way. It is important to understand that
what you will find here are scientific hypotheses for a reality.
The state of fascination can be accounted for between the hypnotic
In this case, it can be viewed as something different from what is
normally referred to by actual hypnotists as “trance”. Thanks to the
fascination techniques, we can obtain results not obtainable through
simple suggestion. The state of fascination is not only a
psychological one but also a physiological one.
If you look at it from a hypnotic point of view, it is one of the
most amazing states that we can achieve. There are also many
physical signs - the jaw muscles are relaxed and the eyes are wide
open with little or no movement.
In this state, the attention of the subject is concentrated and the
ideas acted upon immediately. Normally the eyes of the fascinated
person are glued upon the eyes of the fascinator and they cannot
Many subjects profess not to remember anything at the end of the
Another use of fascination is to influence and persuade, and the
term is passed in the popular language as a way of saying that a
person is capable of capturing the attention of someone else.
Fascination and Quantum Science
Fascination can be defined as a relationship of intense observation.
The attention of the person fascinated is completely bound to the
person he/she is observing, and the results tend to obey to quantum
influences the reality he is observing
This is true in each
relationship, but it is even truer in the fascination.
That is, a relationship of observation.
The observation of the operator is what creates and influences
Waves and Fascination
The fascination training of the fascinators’ school seems to be able
to induce in the fascinator a state of high excitation and high
brain activity in some cases. This state of enhanced awareness can
be accounted for the production of gamma waves.
A gamma wave is a pattern of brain waves, associated with perception
and consciousness. Some experiments on advanced Tibetan Buddhist
meditators (by a team including Mathieu Ricard), revealed high
frequency coherent "gamma wave" EEG fluctuations in the range of 30
to 90 cycles per second (several times faster than the well-known "alpha"
waves of novice meditators of approximately 10 cycles/sec.).
There are now indications that the brains of these Buddhist actually
see thousands of neurons at widely spaced locations fire in coherent
synchronization. They are too perfectly timed to be controlled by
normal, and relatively slow, neural processes. Some researchers are
now suggesting that strange “non-local” quantum effects can only
coordinate these coherent oscillations.
These particular states can therefore also be at the foundation of
some phenomena of “thought transference” we observe.
In our training we have a striking similarity with what was observed
in some Tibetan monks.
Heightened consciousness, known as Samadhi in the meditation
tradition, is an experience unclouded by cognitive contents. One
usually arrives at it gradually, disciplining the mind and learning
how to focus all attention on a single thing. Concentrating the mind
on a single point is also the basic exercise of the fascinators.
Some old schools of thought believe that to get to real samadhi, you
should able to concentrate 12 X 12 X 12 seconds (i.e. 1728 s. or 28
min 48 s). It appears that 28 min and 48 s is very close to the “30
minutes” that are connected with achieving a higher power in some
(Note To understand our

truths are the facts that we can witness. Scientific explanations
are just a way to try to find a basis on modern sciences for the
reality we experience
GAMMA WAVES AND PRESENCE”
At this point there is also a very interesting aspect: the
connection between the states we create when working on fascination
and the aristocratic tradition of “presence” (higher development of
conscience) can find a basis in these studies.
As the aristocratic tradition of presence involves deconceptualizing,
we can observe that focusing completely on a single thing means
letting go of everything else. So when an individual can achieve
this, he can remove himself from all undesired cognitive contents
and enjoy a pure unmediated experience of reality.
Now, if the Gamma wave frequency goes up as more of the brain is
connected through gap junctions, it seems that advanced
practitioners are simply able to network more of their brains,
having trained to concentrate their minds. The benefits of
meditation do not all wear off. Advanced practitioners have a higher
baseline gamma synchrony, suggesting a higher general awareness,
concentration and consciousness. Other research has shown that
meditation also thickens grey matter in parts of the cortex where it
normally gets thinner with age.
It is also interesting to observe that it has always been observed
that real fascinators were usually clever and fast as they were
concentrated in action. Part could be the result of the training.
Transient periods of synchronized neurons firing over the gamma
waveband, composed of entire banks of neurons from different parts
of the brain, have been proposed as a mechanism for bringing a
distributed matrix of cognitive processes together to generate a
coherent, concerted cognitive act, such as perception. For example,
it has been suggested that gamma waves are associated with solving
the binding problem. Recent studies have shown that recognition of
new insights occur when patterns jump from 20 to 40 Hz. An insight
into this is also called “the eureka moment”
WORLD AND FASCINATION
Gamma waves can also be facilitated by strong emotions.
As emotions can facilitate gamma wave, it is interesting that even
in the animal world we find something that can be similar to human
fascination in two specific instances:
- A certain type of fascination happens in the sexual sphere, as the
animal see a partner.
- Another type of fascination is strictly connected to the catching
of a prey
There are many accounts of animals fascinating each other. Serpents,
for example, seem to be able to fascinate birds and other similar
creatures in some cases. It seems that most of the animals have a
sort of intuition of the power of fascination and are able to use it
as they need it.
People of today, living in town, don’t see as many examples of it,
but even one of our masters (Virgilio) said that in the countryside
many people see fascination as nothing very strange as it happens
all the time in the animal world.
SCIENCE BEHIND THE INNER LIFE FORCE
In working with fascination, another interesting aspect is the
awakening of inner life force. In every tradition, the life force
can be enhanced and directed through special exercises. We see here
a striking western similarity with the idea of “kundalini arising”
in eastern development techniques
SIMILITUDES WITH "KUNDALINI AWAKENING" and "KUNDALINI SYNDROME"
Kundalini, according to various teachings, is a type of "corporeal
According to yogic writings and oral tradition, the force of
Kundalini is raised through specific meditative practices.
Kundalini-experiences are understood using the structure of the
chakra system, the psycho-spiritual energy centres along the spine.
According to Hindu tradition Kundalini rises from the root chakra up
through the spinal channel, (called Shushumna), and it is believed
to activate each chakra it goes through. Each chakra is said to
contain special characteristics. The chakras are any of the nerve
plexes or centres of force and consciousness located within the
inner bodies of man.
Kundalini has also been defined as "pranic awakening", where Prana
is interpreted as the vital, life-sustaining force in the body.
Uplifted, or intensified life-energy is called pranotthana and is
supposed to originate from an apparent reservoir of subtle
bio-energy at the base of the spine.
OPINION ON OUR PRACTICES
Our opinion is that the fascinator creates in himself a synchronized
state between the different glands and nerve centres corresponding
to the different chakras. This synchronization is an expression of
the synchronization of various parts of the brain.
The result could be gamma waves or simply a better working of the
If we look at the brain as an element that has the goal of
synchronizing the different part of the body, we can understand that
in synchronizing the different glands we create a special state that
is probably necessary for achieving the higher results we observe.
FASCINATION FROM AN ETHOLOGICAL POINT OF VIEW
We can observe fascination also from a pure psychological
ethological viewpoint. The idea is: logical mind and society are
just a recent sovra structure for the human.
How was it possible in primitive eves to ascertain that somebody was
We see that some primates look themselves in the eyes. We can think
that the same is for the humans. The direct gaze can be a
manifestation of superiority that triggers automatic encoded
reactions in our brains
