CONCEPT

CRYSTALINA features the romance between two scientists : an astrophysics professor in search for extraterrestrial intelligence , and a neuroscientist who explores the realms of brain altered perceptions through electromagnetic pulses and hypnosis. Both are on the quest to prove an invisible dimension which connects it all , as their studies in completely different fields bring up the same answers. 

According to Einstein, “Time and space are modes by which we think and not conditions in which we live”

Crystalina is a story that connects the scientific world to the psychological realm , exploring the boundaries of global and individual consciousness and the illusion of time/space as we perceive it, presenting the concept of parallel realities and multiple universes as understood in the “String Theory “.

With advances in quantum physics and space exploration , and new images and data coming from telescopes travelling for over 20 years, the concept of parallel universes or multiverses has been a recurring subject in the media : several documentaries have been produced by BBC, Discovery and other television channels , as well as publications in newspapers and numerous books written about this fascinating topic: the parallel realities.

The discovery of planets similar to Earth and theoretically capable of harboring life sharpens the curiosity about this subject , which was once considered science fiction, but recent studies show we are close to a new reality. Last year a group of scientists in Vienna revolutionized quantum physics performing an experiment that might be the principle of teleportation, bending the notions of space / time which we are familiar to.

In the complex field of the human mind, an American neuroscientist developed a technique of hypnosis that induces the patient in a trance where he can access his deepest records in memory, and some of the recorded sessions patients revealed experiences and contact with extraterrestrial signals. This hypnotic trance is achieved by altering the brainwave frequency of these patients through electromagnetic pulses. And some people had experienced this NDE ( near death experiences)

Studies have been published about people sensitive to electromagnetic waves emitted by WiFi and cordless phones – their brain frequency are proved to be altered by electromagnetic radiation,

In a macro scale, the largest known electromagnetic discharge is displayed by the aurora borealis, which occur on Earth’s poles provoked by intense solar storms, which can be so powerful so as to affect power grids, disrupt satellites and radio transmissions. What effects can this powerful discharge have over human brain and thus, reality perception ?

There are theories that suggest that people who reach a state where brain waves are altered into specific frequencies, which can be achieved through hypnotic trance, somnambulistic states or in contact with electromagnetic discharge , can access another plane, a parallel reality where time and space are not exactly as we know.

All of these theories and studies can be placed somewhere along the electromagnetic spectrum. This story is about the quest for a connection between the macro and the micro, from the waves in our brain to the signals in space.
