A Tesseract is a fascinating thing. It is an excellent metaphor for our philosophy. Through it we learn about the multidimensional nature of ourselves. The animation below shows an artist's representation of a tesseract. But before we elaborate further, let us take a little detour into its history.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word “Tesseract” was first used by Charles Howard Hinton in his 1888 publication “A New Era of Thought.” The term “Tesseract” is believed to come from Ionic Greek “τεσσερες ακτινες” which translates as “four rays”, referring to the four lines from each vertex to other vertices.
Hinton, who went on to write “The Fourth Dimension” in 1906, believed he had developed a system that would allow us to actually visualize the 4th dimension, which he believed to be “spatial”. We generally tend to think of the universe as existing within 3 spatial dimensions (3-D), namely length, width and depth, with the 4th being time.
The author who coined the phrase “A Tesseract won’t fit into our universe“, really challenges our perceptions of dimensions. If we hold to the belief that there are only three, then yes indeed, a Tesseract simply will not fit.
If a Tesseract can exist, then a 4th dimension can exist. Just as a 3-D cube can be drawn on a 2-D surface, if we can conceptualize a 4-D Tesseract we can conceptualize multi dimensions. This is the essence of our interest in the Tesseract.
“The Tesseract allows us to glimpse with our intellect that with which our senses struggle.” C.W.
The Tesseract therefore opens our minds to dimensions beyond our perception and broadens our understanding of reality. Take a look at the following Tesseract equation. Here you are looking at a conceptualization (through mathematics) of a phenomenon which lies beyond 3-D.
Author Alex Garland, in his 1999 novel “The Tesseract”, also used it as a metaphor. In this case it is for the characters' inability to understand the causes behind the events which shape their lives: they can only visualize the superficial world which they inhabit.
We too can be much like the characters in Garland’s book. We perceive our “reality” through a 3-D prism; therefore we tend to think of ourselves as 3-D creatures who inhabit 3-D space. From a 3-D perspective it can be almost impossible to source the roots of some happenings in our lives. Though they manifest in 3-D, they do not always originate there.
Multi dimensional beings
So, why would we want to explore these concepts in relation to energy balance and wellbeing?
The answer is simple - because we are more than the sum of our parts – we are multi dimensional beings. Our core energy building blocks eventually manifest at the physical level but do not originate there. Because they do not originate at an accessible physical level, we find it easier to ignore them. These energies cannot be ignored simply because we cannot see them. The evidence for their existence is there and as I have said elsewhere, we ignore this evidence at out peril. All matter is in constant motion; receiving, transmitting and reflecting the vibrations which sweep through at all times.
The equivalence of mass and energy, E = mc2
Einstein's famous formula, describing the relationship between energy (E), mass (m) and the speed of light (c), E=mc². This formula derives from Einstein's special theory of relativity in which he postulates that time and space are relative - how we measure time and space depends on our state of motion relative to other observers.

Chiropractic must take into consideration the non physical energy anatomy. Our multitude of techniques, if focused solely on the 3-D physical domain, simply cannot address root origins. We need to learn how to work at a more subtle, more fundamental level. When D.D. Palmer spoke of Innate and Universal, I believe he meant for chiropractic to work with these energies.
These energies course through us via borderless routes, are deeper and more formative than the slower energies of the physical body, the meridians chakras or aura. All of life is vibrating, every atom is constantly moving and frequencies are the unifying forces which permeate all matter and its effects.
“The science which only looks at matter covers only one billionth of all the phenomena in the Cosmos and therefore draws unilateral and incorrect conclusions”
Dr. Edward F. Block IV, Ph.D.
Subtle energy is the conductive medium through which consciousness (innate) acts on the realms of all matter and all energy. Frequencies are the current coursing through this medium. The universe is in a state of vibration and the human body is an interlacing web of vibratory fields and energy current. Modern physics has shown that everything is energy vibrating at different frequencies to become what we experience as the material world.
“The difference between physical matter and etheric matter is only a difference of frequency.”
Richard Gerber, M.D. Author Vibrational Medicine
Frequencies are not only the gateway to our energy matrix; they are the fabric of the matrix itself. When our body is stimulated by frequencies we are affected on all levels, be it physical, emotional or spiritual. It is towards core energy balance and wellbeing that our Tesseract8 (Acoustic Cocoon) is focused.
