The Romantic Era during the Age of Enlightenment was about a long desperate battle to immortalise the profound emotional concept of the ancient Greek ideals about Wisdom through Beauty. The Romanticists were trying to prevent an age of emotional despair, engendered by what William Blake called the Satanic Mills of the Industrial Age, with its scientific rationalism of nature. The artist William Blake, the poets William Wordsworth and John Keats, were among those who challenged the theories of such people as Leonardo da Vinci, Rene Descartes and Sir Isaac Newton, for their complicity in helping to bring about the era governed by a mechanical description of the universe.
Blake's satanic times have not changed. On the 28th of May 2011, almost one third of the population of the picturesque Australian township of Murwillumbah, nestled in the scenic World Heritage listed Tweed Valley of Northern New South Wales, marched in protest against mining permits issued by the Government related to the drilling for coal seam gas in their shire. Nearby, just over the border into the state of Queensland, vast areas of fertile land had been laid waste by authorised gas drilling procedures. The water table had been so badly polluted that drinking water from taps could be ignited to produce flames giving off carcinogenic gases. Land holders had learned to their horror that they only owned a few inches of their top soils and were powerless to prevent legalised acts bringing about great emotional and financial despair.
The much loved poem by John Keats, Ode to the Nightingale, was a desperate cry that, intuition, creative imagination and emotional feeling were essential aspects of reality, but his attacks upon Sir Isaac Newton for ignoring this were, strangely enough, unfounded. Sir Isaac Newton had good reason not to publish such sentiments. He lived in the same century in which the scientist Giordano Bruno had been burned alive in Rome for teaching about the them at Oxford university. However, during the 20th Century, Isaac Newton's unpublished Heresy Papers were discovered, which "proclaimed Newton's conviction that mechanical science had to be completed by a more profound natural philosophy which probed the active principles behind particles in motion". This was published on the 30th of November, 1989 by the journal Nature, Volume 342, within a paper entitled, Alchemy of Matter and Mind, written by Richard Gregory, Emeritus Professor of Neurophysiology at the University of Bristol.
The Molecule of Emotion was discovered in 1972 by Dr Candace Pert revealing secrets of life that are now emerging from research into the Platonic Fullerene Chemistry at the University of Florence. Professor Paolo Manzelli and Professor Massimo Pregnalato shared the Georgio Napolitano Medal, which was awarded to them on behalf of the Republic of Italy for their quantum biological discoveries. Their work was found compatible with electromagnetic functioning associated with cerebral creative thinking discovered by Texas University's Dr Richard Merrick. He derived functions of creative thought from the Platonic concept of the 'Music of the Spheres' and published this in his book titled INTERFERENCE. It is interesting that from a Humanities viewpoint, the recent book HARMONY by Prince Charles is also based upon the same Platonic concepts.
The Romanticists have been proven to have been correctly inspired by life-energy forces in nature. Prince Charles was correct when he fused ancient Greek and Egyptian life science concepts of artistic creativity with a new way to look at science. The citizens of Murillumbah will surely be interested to learn that Western Jurisprudence Law, condoning global economic rationalism, has been based upon unethical assumptions. This law for perpetual economic growth, based incorrectly upon Kantian Aesthetics instead of Kant's electromagnetic God like perpetual ethic, is now held in contempt by both the upgraded Newtonian Sciences and the Humanities belonging to the great Romanticists. Sir Issac Newton's active principles behind particles in motion belong in direct association with both the Music of The Spheres logic as well as to the functioning of Dr Pert's Molecule of Emotion.
