One of the most interesting fields of research that Damanhur has developed is that linked to ‘Selfica’, a discipline that involves the concentration and direction of vital and intelligent energies. Selfica was widely used in Atlantis and traces of its use can also be found in Egyptian, Etruscan and Celtic cultures. The ancient Arabs used Selfica until the VIII century B.C.
Selfica, introduced into Damanhur through the research of Oberto Airaudi, creates structures based on the spiral and the use of metals, colours, inks and minerals that are able to host intelligent energies. With a simple structure based on metals, particular substances and geometric combinations, Selfica facilitates the superimposition of the complexity of living beings. The particular energies that selfic structures call upon are in fact living life forms, border intelligences that pass from one reality to another acting as intermediaries between planes of existence.
Selfic energies belong to a sector of our universe characterized by ultra-light speed and when they are called inside an object it is as if they undergo a kind of deceleration.
Building a selfic structure is a way of making a body available for the use of the ‘Self ‘.
The intelligence of the Self is in fact the energy that manages the physical part of the structure and which continues to use the laws of its own plane of existence in order to act in ours.
The interaction of a Self with an individual is always based upon mutual advantage: for this reason Selfs can be considered specialist symbionts. The Self attracts useful conditions for physical life or for the development of personal potential, connecting to the aura through the ‘microlines’: the energy lines of the human body.
In exchange the selfic intelligence has the opportunity to gain experience of a different world from that in which it originates. Selfs and human beings do not live all aspects of their existence in reciprocal interaction, only those that bring specific mutual advantage.
The largest selfic structure on the planet is hosted by the Temples of Humankind, a great underground work of art built by the citizens of the Federation of Damanhur.
The selfic installation’s principal function is to correct, balance and modify sound, rhythm and time. The Temples seen in the context of a laboratory create the ideal conditions for interacting with Higher Forces for the evolution of humanity. The use of the selfic structures of the Temples has allowed for the development of new areas of research, both in the field of health and the exploration of time and space.
