The Kolisko effect: Planets affecting Chemical Processes

#1
I don't know how many people around here are aware that there's a deeper, more profound, kind of astrology, much different from the everyday newspaper sun-sign astrology. In my experiments I've become convinced that there definitely is something to astrology, maybe not in terms of signs, but more in terms of planets affecting us/reality/Earth. There's some synchronistic relationship there, but I'm one of these people who like to dig deeper into the rabbit hole. So there's a synchronistic relationship, but could we somehow understand more about it? How does it operate? Are there certain laws in the way it operates? Etc.

Now, some time ago I stumbled upon the so-called Kolisko effect - basically, it's an effect demonstrating that aspects between planets somehow affect chemical processes on Earth.

In classical astrology, each planet has a metal assigned to it: Sun - gold, Moon - silver, Mercury - mercury, Venus - copper, Mars - iron, Jupiter - tin, Saturn - lead. It is not entirely clear to me how the planets got these metals assigned to them (except maybe there's some obious symbolic connection between Sun - gold and Mercury-mercury (the planet Mercury was very hard to predict for the ancients, so it seemed more "random" and "fluid", like the fluid metal mercury)).

Lily Kolisko was a student of Rudolf Steiner (the founder of the esoteric school of anthroposophy) and she, following Steiner's instructions, decided to perform several experiments proving (or disproving) the age-old notions of alchemy, astrology, etc., or the quite unconventional and "unscientific" (considered unscientific only in the realms of modern materialist science) belief that planets can and do affect chemical processes:

Quoting from here: http://www.sciencegroup.org.uk/kolisko/a_chemical_theatre.htm

The basic procedure for these experiments was developed by Kolisko in the 1930s, following some indications from Rudolf Steiner. They are chromatographic, in that a precipitation reaction takes place slowly as solutions rise up a filterpaper.
So, she'd put the reactives on the filter-paper and they'd form various patterns while they were reacting. They'd form patterns like this - http://www.sciencegroup.org.uk/kolisko/081176.jpg


Now, without further ado, here's what happens - http://www.sciencegroup.org.uk/kolisko/19b.jpg - when silver nitrate and ferrous sulphate are put on the filterpaper and left to react while a conjunction between Mars (ferrous sulphate) and Moon (silver nitrate) is upcoming. Photos are taken on the same day - a few minutes before, during, and after the conjunction. Obviously something is going on. Or it might be just a coincidence? However, this is not the only experiment, in fact Kolisko's experiment has been replicated several times (alas, not by mainstream materialist science) and not using just Moon/Mars, but the other planets as well:

Now, this is quite interesting stuff. IMO It's obvious that the total "randomness" of the chemical solution is lowered when the planets are in conjunction. So, planetary conjunction = less chaos, i.e. lower entropy? It's like if there's a "battle" between chaos and order (high entropy vs. low entropy) and the planets provide the rhythmic beat for switching between order and chaos.

What is interesting is that the chaos vs order thing is, pradoxally, not random - it's in fact an ordered "battle". It appears random, because it's very complex and it reminds me of the deterministic chaos systems in physics. It's unpredictable because of its complexity, but it's still determined. Examples of determinist chaotic systems: fractals or even the three-body problem.

Anyhow, I just wanted to share this here, if anyone is interested - please share your thoughts :)
