of the example of power line synchronization...
There are possibly thousands of individual generators in any country, tied into "the grid" and contributing their little bit to the overall power production of the entire country. Sometimes (maybe even often), the grid extends through several countries! All of those generators are contributing power far and wide to several countries!
It works very simply; they're all synchronized to each other in speed and phase. Here in America, they all run at a speed to produce 60 oscillations -(0 to + to 0 to - to 0 volts)- per second. Just like shaking a rope up and down produces a nice serpentine pattern with top and bottom of the loops ... the "sine wave" of power production looks just like that.
What's most important/crucial is that every generator produce the same sine wave and that it be locked into step with the up/down pattern of all generators producing power in the line. If a new generator is brought up to speed and then connected to the grid with it's oscillation 1/60th of a second out of synch ... the + and - of its waves will be in direct opposition to the grid oscillation and will create the equivalent of a full "short" to the line ... burning out the generator which is being brought onto the line. It's just that "easy" to produce a fatal error!
So that's all pretty simple to comprehend. In fact, there's even a very simple old fashioned way of bringing a new generator up to speed and and lock it into synchronization with the grid and that is, hook one wire to the grid and then put a light bulb between the other wire and the other wire of the grid and gently ease the speed of the new generator up or down ... until the light bulb goes out ... and then snap the lines together with a switch. Once the new generator is synchronized and connected, it will STAY synchronized all by itself. Adding more torque to the new generator will cause the generator to contribute to the grid power and reducing torque will cause the grid to turn the generator -(ie, give power to the generator to make it turn).
As long as the grid is synchronized and locked, it will produce billions of watts of power for consumers to use.
What if something were to happen to BREAK the synchronization? A full "blackout" of power would occur over very large areas -in fact over the ENTIRE grid- unless operators or automatic switches very quickly CAUGHT the problem and switched OFF connections in the grid to isolate the non-synchronized sections.
Blackouts HAVE occurred
on large grids a NUMBER of times in the history of modern electrical power distribution. The cause of them isn't "fully understood" but there's speculation that they were caused by some large cosmic power burst coming down to earth from outer space.
Recovery from a blackout isn't fast, simple or easy. It can take days to bring all the individual generators back onto the grid in synchronization once again.
One would think that it should be fairly easy with modern technology: just have all the individual generators lock into step with a central atomic time clock and then throw the switches to connect them all together at once.
It doesn't quite work that simply though. Power lines are long and have a certain "spring" or elastic factor inherent in that length. Connecting a whole bunch of generators in sync. all at once all over the country would only result in waves of power colliding with each other and creating more havoc than even the blackout itself!
So the generators have to be tediously added individually and power stabilized before the next one is added etc. ... until they're finally all back on line and working together as a team again.
Ok, that's a little object lesson in how synchronizing to a vibration ... works.
Since our universe operates on vibrations (of all kinds, sizes and frequencies) ... even thoughts and ideas might be seen to synchronize in a similar way.
A new idea or concept is very small and hard to "detect." Present a brand new -very GOOD- idea to people and it will generally "fall on deaf ears."
If the idea "strikes a cord" with people though, the new idea will begin to "resonate" with everyone hearing it ... and before very long at all ... the new idea will become accepted and be pronounced as "fact" (by most hearers). Then it will become "de facto" truth.
Even if a new idea is mostly bunk, PRESENTING it in certain ways to INCLUDE well known sympathies ... that idea can be accepted as fact or truth ... even though it's primarily garbage.
This is why advertising is as effective as it is. Most advertising is primarily false information but includes elements of truth that are embraced by the majority of people. Advertising is a means of producing or triggering artificial synchronization of thought amongst a substantially sized group of people. People aren't INDIVIDUALLY affected to act on a new concept or idea being presented in advertising ... instead, they talk about what they see and hear ... with others. If it turns out that the people they talk to have ALSO seen/heard the same advertising, it creates the start of a synchronization of thought.
You take fads like the cabbage patch doll -(produced by one of the former core group of Microsoft ... which, incidentally, made him VERY rich ... and for which he was labeled a "genius")- and you see something very stupid which somehow tricked people into believing that there was (or had to be) some sense to it.
What was the trick? Blanket advertising in key areas of the country, simultaneous with a seasonal "demand" to buy gifts -(and maybe quiet little payoffs to key news outlets as well ... to "flog" it).
People heard about it in advertising but then they heard about it from friends and relatives from remote areas too! They saw it talked about on the news and described as a "phenomenon." Because this "thing" seemed to be everywhere at once, they became convinced that there must be something of value to it! Thus, they began to buy, buy, buy ... especially when they became convinced that there was a "shortage" of this commodity.
That's how false "truth" is promoted. It's by careful design and implementation of fake resonance ... and ... because of the falseness, these things never last very long ... soon becoming relegated to the annals of "fads."
But what about REAL truth? Real truth resonates and remains ... unless it's mercilessly bombarded by falseness.
Do we see signs of truth being assaulted by ridiculous falseness today? Absolutely. For those who still have a mind to evaluate things for themselves, it's almost shockingly unbelievable that the content of these campaigns is so blatantly false and/but that average people are still accepting them as being oh-so-normal!
The key thing to remember though is that real truth has more power than false propaganda. What resonates more purely and cleanly with people will eventually come out on top ... even though it seems to be subverted into dormancy.
Once people begin to synchronize with a truth, they start to become alive ... love it .. and then become very active in adding their own power to it.
So I guess the main thing to keep in mind is NOT to become discouraged if you're promoting real truth. Eventually it WILL win and just before it wins, it will EXPLODE into being.
