Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Schumann Resonance
English term or phrase: on the contrary if anything
I have difficulty understanding this phrase. Help, please!

Context:
There has also been rumor circulating in some esoteric circles about the 7.8 Hz. Schumann frequency increasing and that this implies a raising of the awareness or spirituality of human consciousness.

In my opinion, both points are nonsense built upon misunderstandings about the fluctuating and multi-frequency nature of the Schumann Resonances and about the nature of frequencies in general.
Even if it were true (which would require a significant change in the physical size of the Earth or in her surrounding atmosphere), an increase in frequency does not imply an increase in awareness--on the contrary if anything.

Explanation:
10. If dùng khá phổ biến với một số từ như “any/anything/ever/not” diễn đạt phủ định

Ex: There is little if any good evidence for flying saucers.

(=There is little evidence if ther is any at all, for flying saucers)

(Có rất ít bằng chứng về đĩa bay, nếu quả là có một chút)

Ex: I’m not angry. If anything, I feel a little surprised.

(Tôi không giận dữ gì đâu. Mà trái lại tôi cảm thấy hơi ngạc nhiên)

a, Thành ngữ này còn diễn đạt ý kiến ướm thử: Nếu có…

Ex: I’d say he was more like a father, if anything

(Tôi xin nói rằng ông ấy còn hơn cả một người cha, nếu có thể nói thế.)

Even if it were true (which would require a significant change in the physical size of the Earth or in her surrounding atmosphere), an increase in frequency does not imply an increase in awareness--on the contrary if anything. =

Ngay cả nếu điều đó là đúng (...), sự gia tăng về tần số không ngụ ý sự gia tăng về nhận thức--mà có lẽ/có thể là trái lại
