Peter Kelder was in Tibet in the 1930's but his work has nothing to do with the Tibetan culture that we are familiar with today. To call The Rites Tibetan Rites is really an attempt to exploit the Tibetan culture. We have attempted to avoid that association at Borderland Sciences.
Borderland Sciences Research Foundation has the copyright for this material since 1975 under its actual title The Eye of Revelation. The Fountain of Youth is merely a reprint of this material padded with 100 additional pages. Because Eye of Revelation is such a silly old name we have called Peter Kelders work The Five Rites for years and years.
The Five Rites have been important to Borderland Sciences because they are a powerful example of a simple empirical experiment that you can perform with no tools and experience a powerful change in your consciousness and perception.
We have made some speculations based on an insight from George Crile that we have published:
The Five Rites as given by Peter Kelder do not make reference to ether, glands, or chakras but simply to Vortexes. The connection of the Vortexes to the glands of the Endocrine system is no mere coincidence; this is an ancient borderland science. The glands and the nerve plexus are the physical manifestations of the chakras. I imagine the colorful wheels depicted in chakra mythology are descriptions of the fields viewed through highly developed senses that can perceive the ether as Rudolf Steiner describes in his ideas on perception and sense development.
That the glands are radiating energy we know from the radio, electric interpretation of life as developed by George Crile; "Evolution probably seized upon the factors that have the power of shifting the amount of radiation toward the short wave field, hence increasing the amount of electricity generated. Thus, an increase in the electrical charge increases the muscular and glandular activity of the animal."
The Five Rites seem to enhance the ability to shift the amount of short wave radiation toward the short wave field. We seem to see a glimpse of the etheric/electric transmutation taking place within the Vortex. The Five Rites stimulate the entire "energy-controlling system" and hypothetically the body's ability to receive vital force is enhanced
From universal scientific principles we can begin to build a hypothesis on how it is the development of the endocrine system that underlies one of the major benefits of certain types of exercise.
It is not the ancient religious practices of Tibet that empowers these five simple movements.
It is more likely that the Tibetans had discovered some secrets to consciousness and the endocrine system and encodeded them in poetic language and ritual practice.
Some strange stuff comes out of Tibet.
The Five Rites are clearly much more of a Secular Magick than anything resembling any of the ancient religious practices of the far east. This is a perfect example of the universal idea getting transplanted in new soil. That these movements have an intrinsic value to the health has been amply demonstated.
Things have been going on fine until the last few years when we have these new "teachers" of the five rites who want to exploit the technology for their own personal interests. Peter Kelders work has been preserved by Borderland Sciences since at least as early as 1975 but you will see no mention of this in the newer versions.
There are 32 pages in the original book by Peter Kelder. He did speak with Llamas in Tibet and this is the record of what he learnt. This original account is only available from Borderland Sciences Research Foundation. This is not traditional Tibetan religion but this is powerful evidence of an ancient practice that is rooted in the Borderlands of perception.
Amazon.com in a suppressive act that makes even the Chinese Government look fair removed "The Eye of Revelation" from their network with no explanation. If you think Amazon.com's relation to Chinese Communism is far fetched, I beg you explain why that some group called The Alliance has life and death powers over the marketplace and refuses to commuicate with it's merchants. You can no longer aquire Eye of Revelation at Amazon.com and they refuse to discuss it further. I suggest you boycott Amazon.com when at all possible for their refusal to support idependent publishers.

THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH & YOUR HORMONES
By Jay Chatterjee & Roshmi Raychaudhuri
Everyone has heard of the mythical "Fountain of Youth", but very few realize that it actually does exist. And even fewer realize that it exists inside every one of us. Yes, it's there right within you, just waiting to be activated !!
Juan Ponce de Leon, the Spanish explorer sailed around the Florida coast in search of the legendary "Fountain of Youth"..the secret to being young again forever. That was five hundred years ago, more or less. Since then modern day 'explorers', in the form of researchers, have been continuing the quest for the secrets to attain eternal youth
They have discovered that at the core of this fountain is the body's hormonal or neuro endocrine system, the collective name assigned to the glands and organs that manufacture hormones within our bodies.
Aging is a process that happens to all of us. Usually around thirty to thirty-five years of age, we begin to notice the first telltale signs of aging, the strands of gray hair, the deepening of expression lines (the pre-cursor to wrinkles), the slight sagging of facial features, the gradual loss of skin elasticity as collagen formation declines. As the years roll by, this aging process continues inexorably - stiffer joints, dimmer vision, loss of taste buds, gray hair, less libido!
As we see the same thing happening to our friends and family we accept it as natural and inevitable. We start to accept our declining faculties as being nature's way, and start thinking of ourselves as old. The change in mental perspective further accelerates the process. And, as we look in the mirror, year after year, we gradually begin to look, feel and act progressively older, our mindset reflecting our mirror image.
Today, technology and medical advances have made it possible to live much longer, leading to an aging of the population - there are many more 'seniors' in our society than ever before. In fact, average longevity has gone up all over the world since the beginning of the 20th century. In the U.S longevity has increased by as much as 25 years.
However, regrettably, the factor that has not changed is the number of years one has to live with age-related disability. It is still an average of ten years for most of us. There is no question that each one of us, man and woman, would like to live our sixties, seventies and eighties with looks, health and vitality intact. Nor do we like the idea of losing any of our faculties or senses. Can we minimize, or eliminate completely this period of decrepitude from our lives?
In varying degrees, they all work! But think about HOW they work!
Diets and cardio-vascular exercises work by regulating the body's consumption of energy. Known as metabolism, it is a complex interaction of chemical conversions that take place continually in order to generate energy and keep the body at optimum level. Control of the entire process lies in the hormonal (neuroendocrine) system.
The challenge element perks up secretions of the hormone adrenaline...the body's age-old response to any form of stress or threat is production of higher doses. The skin is kept hydrated by secretions of oil and sweat-producing hormones, and the entire process of sexuality and reproduction is hormone-induced, and starts from the hormonal (neuroendocrine) system.
And so, through course of diets, exercises, creams and supplements you manage to keep your body and mind in peak condition. What happens when you get a bout of the 'flu'? Without the help of the thymus and your immune system your body may just pack it in !!
The hormonal system has a finger in every pie! Does the concept seem rather esoteric? Do you think I am overplaying the role of the endocrine glands?
Consider the facts. Sift through reports on the most current research going on in this field. Much of the anti-aging experimentation being conducted in various laboratories around the world, is connected with ingestion of hormonal supplements. HGH (human growth hormone) and DHEA, both popular experimental therapies being used at present, are nothing but hormones. And without a doubt they produce benefits, even though it is probably too early to determine if they produce any their attendant side effects.
Then again there is much research connected to the use of release factors or 'releasers', whereby, instead of ingesting supplements, one would ingest releasers, which would activate the glands into releasing hormones. Such experiments are still at an early stage, and not much is known about the attendant side effects, if any.
In fact, this very principle of hormonal flow seems to have been known to the Himalayan people in ancient times, and forms the basis of the Tibetan yoga rejuvenation and anti aging technique. They seem to have way ahead of us in their knowledge. They knew, 4000 years ago, how to push the button that would cause the body to produce its own natural releasers, rather than rely on artificial synthetic ones. This, then, is the knowledge made public by the Tibetan rejuvenation yoga technique
