I dislike having to bother you with such complicated questions, but sometimes we need to ask in order to understand some things:

When talking about sexual energy it is stated explicitly that to experience, or rather to allow oneself to reach orgasm is a waste of energy, we are wasting our sexual energy and releasing it into the atmosphere in a centrifugal manner, down and out.

We know that energy and matter cannot be created nor destroyed, only transformed from one form to another, as stated by Einstein. So we know that in the sexual release via orgasm, the energy is not destroyed nor created in the act, whats left? Must have been transformed according to Einstein (Thermodynamics/Law of Conservation of Energy).

Let's go further; it was stated that each Monad has a fixed amount of energy, relatively speaking, depending on its level of development at the "time" right? So this is where we wish to know; where does that energy go when "wasted" during the orgasm?

I contemplated something that was brought up during a lecture given by a Gnostic instructor, that the ego is a combination of matter, energy and consciousness, a legion of aggregates, creatures formed by wrongly transformed impressions. To fulfill the law of invariance is it that the "wasted" sexual energy is still with us, however it is conditioned and invested in the subconsciousness instead? And that transmutation on the other hand refines the energy and invests it in the consciousness?

When a couple unites in alchemy, performing sexual super dynamics, is there an exchange of energy, a merging of each others energy?

Solar energy is distributed throughout the mind, heart, and body, yet we do have a reservoir in our solar plexus until it is utilized and spent, either by the consciousness or the ego.

Transmutation provides greater amplification, purification, and sharpening of insight.

Yes the energy is transformed. I can transform a pile of cash into heat by burning the paper. The energy is transformed, but, it is just as appropriate to say that it was wasted. There is a much more intelligent way to use that capital.

Of course, through that transformation, the energy is being used to condense the psychological aggregates. Yes, invested into the ego.

When a couple unites, they are influencing each other yes. There is an exchange of energies.

Many of us have invested a lot of energy into the ego via the practice of fornication, so our ego is very strong since it is financed well. Is it possible to reclaim the energy that was wasted via orgasm?

edit: Just to be clear (if it wasn't already so), my understanding, so far, is that fornication, ie orgasm, produces a special type of karma called kamaduro, so it is not my intention to justify the spasm in any way since the law of karma cannot be ignored. My question is more about understanding the way energy is distributed.

Also: Has the lecture 'Beginning Here and Now: Entropy and Sacrifice' been transcribed? I searched but couldn't find it listed anywhere.

This requires meditation. The energy is used, the result is the lack of fuel for spiritual experience, the creation of the ego, the karma.

Think of it as a stream of water. The water is collected and used, turned to steam (transmuted), or the water moves on and drives the human machine mechanically. The energy is used up. When you comprehend the ego, you are liberating your consciousness and acquire the sapience of sin. But when you do that, you are using the current energy that is flowing in you now.

Concerning the lecture, I don't see it anywhere transcribed.

In the case of the transmuted energy, where does it go? It's collected so to me there's an implication that its stored somewhere. Texts state that the transmuted energy is fuel for spiritual experience (as you and other instructors have also mentioned) so along those lines it seems reasonable to think that the collected energy is being used up to fuel those experiences, however, until the energy is used up does it stay in a sort of limbo?

I say limbo because if I am not mistaken, the collected transmuted energy can also be utilized by the ego to further complicate itself, is this correct?

Along similar lines, if one is meditating and having some difficulty with visualization, would breath retention and alternate breathing (Egyptian Pranayama style) help to stimulate the imagination in those moments of dullness?
