Hinduism and Buddhism believe the world is of 4 elements: earth, water, fire and air, that are
the “great elements”. Buddhism describes the near death of human as the dissolution of the
elements. First the earth element sinks into the water element, and then the water element sinks
into the fire, and fire into the air, and the air element dissolves, leading to the ultimate death.
Stated in Vimalakirti Sutra, “The body is the issue of the four main elements, and in these
elements there is no owner and no agent.”
Earth element is the firmness in our bodies like our muscles; water element is the liquidity of in
our bodies like our blood and body fluid; fire element is our inner temperature, ; and air element
is the chi in our bodies. The elements are all seen in the great chiliocosm, hence they are
named the great elements.
The 4 deities in the Electromagnetic Brainology refer to 4 pains in the nervous system.
The anubhava of the earth deity controls the neuron in the thalamus which receives the pain
signal, acting at the sensory area of the cerebral cortex, to relieve the pain of earth element.
The anubhava of the water deity controls the autonomic nervous system, and the connection
among cerebral cortex, hypothalamus, and autonomic nervous system, to relieve and eliminate
the pain of water element, such as excretion, blood and pus.
The temperature and stamina of human is categorized into fire element in the 4 great elements.
The anubhava of the fire deity controls the neuron at the thermal receptor, to relieve or eliminate
the pain of fire element.
The air deity drives on the limbic system across the chiliocosm to relieve the pain of air element.
The anubhava of the air deity controls the respiratory center of human to relieve or eliminate the
pain of air element.
The artwork creates 4 deities of the great elements, that address to 4 pain received in the brain
in the nervous system with modern medical devices.
Each deity owns a DBS mukut (Deep brain stimulation mukut). DBS technology is a widely
practiced surgical practice, while in a DBS treatment the electrode is planted in the brain of the
patient, making use of pulse generator to stimulate some nerve nucleus deep inside the brain,
correcting the abnormal network, hence relieving the symptoms.
Each deity in the artwork has a self-stimulating super combo. They first stimulate and strengthen
themselves into a super deity, a metaphor of the artist’s fantasy that a better synchronization
deep inside the brain will lead to stimulation of the potential of the human brain.
Besides, every deity is designed to own a TMS wand (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation). The
technology is widely practiced in the modern neuroscience field, stimulating the brain with small
electric currents, correcting the abnormal brainwave, leading the brain to a series of
neurotransmitter and hormone that are closely related to the diseases like anxiety, depression,
and insomnia, and hence curing the diseases.
The self-stimulating super combo of each deity in the artwork has involved the usage of the
TMS wand, strengthening themselves into deities.
DBS technology is related to electric stimulation, while TMS technology is more related to
electromagnetic stimulation. The artwork is hence collectively referred to Electromagnetic
The artwork is a part of the artist developing a large project of religion, medicalogy, and
neuroscience. The artist has been exploring on the topic with Krafttremor - Parkinson's disease
orchestra (2010), Wrathful King Kong Core (2011), LuYang Delusional Mandala (2015), LuYang
Delusional Crime and Punishment (2016), Electromagnetic Brainology (2017), and the
upcoming work Electromagnetic Brainology - [Brain control messenger] (2018) . Each work is independent while
related to the other works.
