LOCAL AND NON-LOCAL
Brief and simplifed discernment on the following essay Eight Weeks of Meditation Doesn't Change the Brain, Study Finds | The Scientist Magazine® (the-scientist.com). And all related practices as had discerned in diverse ways through diverse past discernments:
It is essential to develop the types of meditation that would best or match one' inspirations, aspirations, yearnings, and or needs whether physically or mentally (however, since physical and mental are irreducible, a better way of saying is more physical or more mental) or both. And as well as natural-spiritual dimensions.
Another simple way of saying is which main aspects and relevant parts of the many sentient composite body-mind system one wants or needs to nurture, develop, and transform. The word main is used to implied that since the many sentient composite body-mind system is made up of irreducible parts; and therefore, there are causality and retro-causality.
For example, if one wants to develop more on the physical aspects, then meditation such as focus attention, mantra, breathing, and or body-mind energy circulation or mainly practices that focus on the biologic physical body. And a health body would better nurture naturalness-spiritual aspects. While for naturalness-spiritual, one needs to apply the subtle body-mind types of meditation such as non-dual free awareness, resonance awareness, and or energy channeling. And healthy subtle body-mind would strengthen or better physical body.
And as such, the benchmark and empirical results have to be based first of all on the type of meditation. And also other factors or variants such as duration, repetition, frequency or how frequent, habitat and environment, biologic-genetic, nutrition, and among others such as natural processes and mechanisms such as elasticity, plasticity, molecular and neuro geneses, epigenetic, and diverse other transmutation due to not only local; rather also non-local interactions and effects (i.e. subtle body-mind).
Currently, the sciences and technologies to directly analyze the subtle bod-mind (or emerging spirit-soul potentialities of possibilities) have yet to be developed. However, even though more advanced sciences and technologies are essential for diverse aspects of many sentient composite body-mind system, certain aspects of body-mind can be analyzed through causality since the subtle body-mind is intertwined and entangled with the physical body. And vice versa. For example, interdependent and interconnected body-mind biologic-genetic, in particularly, non-local genome parameters can be selected and analyzed accordingly until the sciences and technologies can directly analyzed subtle body-mind.
And thus, would advance local, non-local, and universal ways of being and becoming along with complementary sciences and technology as had discerned and encouraged in diverse past discernments such as:
On Nature of Local and Non-Local Universal Genome - EPISTEMOLOGY OF LIFE AND ONTOLOGY OF EXISTENCE FOUNDATION AND INSTITUTE (epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org)
On The Subtle Body-Mind and Universal Genome Quest - EPISTEMOLOGY OF LIFE AND ONTOLOGY OF EXISTENCE FOUNDATION AND INSTITUTE (epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org)
On Evidence of Subtle Body-Mind - EPISTEMOLOGY OF LIFE AND ONTOLOGY OF EXISTENCE FOUNDATION AND INSTITUTE (epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org).
In addition, practicing contemplation basing on the type of meditation would strengthen and complement the practices and overall efforts. And in addition, complementary holistic developments and practices such as nutrition and dietary, exercise, lifestyle, and naturally or very much ways of being and becoming. And as had discerned in diverse ways through diverse past discernments.
In brief summary, meditation and contemplation developments and practices need to integrate the subtle body-mind. And further expand and accelerate the practices holistically through the scientific method, local and non-local experience, empirical data, and reason that would best advance the human conditions, experience, and potential as well as the essence and nature of being and becoming basing on the Essence, Nature, and Ground of being and Becoming. And as well as would better and further facilitate inspirations, aspirations, and yearnings as well as enhance potentialities of possibilities such as in collaboration with other scientific quests and development and living such as On Local and Non-Local Medical and Health Care and Practices - EPISTEMOLOGY OF LIFE AND ONTOLOGY OF EXISTENCE FOUNDATION AND INSTITUTE (epistemologyontologyfoundationinstitute.org).
Therefore, long lasting benefits and betterment while would also safeguard against path of de-evolution, becoming mutants and lesser species, and existential risks locally and non-locally in the known physical world. And beyond. All the while prevents, eliminates, and solutions to malpractice, harm, injustice, and suffering locally, and universally.
