I was reading a “medical/health” article in a Turkish newspaper the other day; the topic was biorhythms. Although, the body has many rhythms, circadian, etc., the article had nothing to do with the “classical” biorhythm that some of us are familiar with.
It was a very popular topic in the past, and I was very much into it. I hadn’t thought about it for years. It’s interesting but controversial; I’ll let you decide.
In Greek, it means life rhythm, and attempts to predict various aspects of a person’s life through simple mathematical cycles.
The theory was developed by Wilhelm Fliess in the late 19th century, and was popularized in the United States in the 1970s. Although most scientists don’t believe in its predictive powers, others do.
According to the theory of biorhythms, a person’s life is influenced by rhythmic biological cycles that affect his or her ability in various domains, such as mental, physical and emotional activity. These cycles begin at birth and oscillate in a steady (sine wave) fashion throughout life, and by modeling them mathematically, it is suggested that a person’s level of ability in each of these domains can be predicted from day to day.
Most biorhythm models use three cycles:
- A 23 -day physical cycle,
- A 28 -day emotional cycle, and
- A 33- day intellectual cycle.
That’s my chart for today: March 29, 2018.
Each of these cycles varies between high and low extremes sinusoidally, with days where the cycle crosses the zero line described as the “critical days” of greater risk or uncertainty.
A rhythm at +100 % would give you an edge in that area, and one at -100 % would make life more difficult in that area.
In the 1970s one American airline would not allow their pilots to fly if all 3 cycles coincided at – 100 %.
On the other hand, if all cycles coincided at + 100 %, it was suggested that you buy lottery tickets that day.
Those of you who want to take a look at examples regarding famous people like:
- Aristotle Onassis
- Clark Gable
- Jimi Hendrix
- Bikila Abebe

Uzi’s recent experience
That’s my Uzi (Uzay) in the picture below. Melis, in last week’s blog, is his mother, and he’s my best friend in the world.
Melis said that he was in such a bad rebellious, angry mood last week that they had to take away his iPad. No wonder he hasn’t FaceTimed me lately.
I went to pick him up from kindergarten yesterday, and just as he was getting in the car, he said he forgot to get some pictures that he made and wanted to show me. We went back inside and he came down crying, saying he couldn’t find them. He calmed down when it was pointed out that the pictures were in his bag.
This was not like him at all.
I did his biorhythm chart for today, and you can see it below.
Notice that 5 days ago, his emotional cycle was at – 100 %; rock bottom. Coincidence????
If you want to look at your chart just Google
and just enter your birth date.
That’s it for today; see you all next time.
