Fritz-Albert Popp on Biophotons - Popp performed tests on 37 chemicals, some carcinogens, and some not. After a while, he could predict which substances could cause cancer: those which absorbed UV light (at 380 nanometers), and emitted it with a changed frequency. The reaction only ocurs for light at 380 nm Those substances which were non-carcinogenic would re-emit the UV light with unchanged frequency. (p 39)

The effect of bio-photons on molecules - As Popp was pondering the larger implications of biophoton emissions, a French scientist had begun looking at the reverse: the effect of this light on individual molecules. Popp believed that bio-photons orchestrated bodily processes, and the French scientist Jacques Benveniste was learning how this process worked. The vibrations of the biophotons Popp had observed in the body caused molecules to vibrate and create their own signature frequency. While Benveniste was director at INSERM, one of its labs had been studying the reaction of certain white blood cells to allergens. (basophil degranulation) One of his best lab techs (Elisabeth Davenas) reported that she had seen and recorded a reaction in the white blood cells, even though there had been too few molecules of the allergen in the solution.

The findings of this research field are not very well known, although they have been known and studied for over half a century. Research began with the famous Gurwich mitogenetic radiation. Today ultraweak bioluminescence is studied worldwide and includes many important findings. The light emitted from organisms was found to be coherent, laser like, and typically radiating with intensities of a few tens up to few hundreds of photons/(cm^2*s). So the measurements are taken with a photomultiplier in the photon counting mode. The light has been discovered in all groups of organisms and in various biological materials (tissues, whole organisms, eggs, seeds, etc.)

Chiropractic and Kirlian Photography -
Chiropractic philosophy teaches that correction of vertebral subluxation reduces nerve interference and promotes health. Nearly a century of clinical correlation with our patients shows the efficacy of our methods. It has been further taught that the chiropractic adjustment liberates life force (innate) when such subluxation ta reduced, thereby allowing the body's own self-regulatory mechanisms to achieve normality. Life force has been described by innumerable technology such as qi, prana, innate, vital force, etc., depending on healing,  tradition and culture.

Kirlian Photography -
A photographic process that captures the auras or biofields of persons or objects within the photograph. The technique involves the photographing of subjects in the presence of a high-frequency, high-voltage, low-amperage-electrical field, which display glowing, multicolored emanations known as auras or biofields. The process of Kirlian photography is named after Seymon Kirlian, an amateur inventor and electrician of Krasnodar, Russia, who pioneered the first efforts on the process in the early 1940s. Even thought the process has produced results it still is controversial.

[ ]
Kirlian Photography - ...Allegedly, this special method of "photographing" objects is a gateway to the paranormal world of auras. Actually, what is recorded is due to quite natural phenomena such as pressure, electrical grounding, humidity and temperature. Changes in moisture (which may reflect changes in emotions), barometric pressure, and voltage, among other things, will produce different 'auras'.

Health as an active flow of information -
In studies by Dr Valerie Hunt of UCLA, Three seconds of high frequency electromyographic data from human muscle was cross plotted with itself with one frame delay to form a strange attractor phase plane. The ovoid phase plane plot has undulating "crinkles" superimposed in it which reflects subtle organization, great complexity, and therefore great information content, at the "Edge of Chaos". Dr. Hunt stresses the importance of these complex, information rich signals for human health

[ Prof. Carl Edwin Lindgren ]
Social Scientist Looks at Aura Mythology - Known over the centuries by many names, ch=i, prana, karnaeem, and Illiaster, auric energy or bioplasmic fields have been documented for over 5,000 years. Astral lights alluded to by ancient Eastern Indians, Chinese, and Jewish mystics, are attributed to a universal energy that permeates all matter. In early esoteric writings and later in those of the Rosicrucians, American Indians, Zen Buddhists, and Christian mystics, these fields have been described as glowing clouds of light diffuse by diverse colors. Christian mystics feel that auric activity consists of two interconnecting energy patterns, i.e. the aureole, surrounding the entire being, and the nimbus or halo encircling the head. Many Eastern and Western esoteric writings, strongly suggest that auric field intensity correlates to Chinese acupuncture locations of subtle energy. The Greek writer Plutarch expressed the notion that auras revealed the desires and vices of man through their color variation, and movements. Gina Allan, author of a best seller, Gifts of Spirit believes that,  

Effects of Sound on Consciousness
[The "Holosync" sound technology and brain waves ]
Claims of Holosync and Reviews -
Dr. Thomas Budzynski, a noted researcher in this field, has said that critical and often self-sabotaging filters of the left brain are bypassed in a theta state, and that in terms of making positive changes in beliefs or habit patterns, "a lot of work gets done very quickly." Researchers at the University of Wisconsin announced to the media in 1990 that they had injected synthetic growth hormone into a small group of elderly men between the ages of 61 and 81. The result was a sudden rejuvenation that reversed biological aging by as much a 20 years! Recent research performed by Dr. Vincent Giampapa, M.D., a prominent anti-aging researcher and past-president of the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine, revealed that Holosync® dramatically affects production of three important hormones related to increased longevity, stress, and enhanced well-being: cortisol, DHEA, and melatonin.

[2001 By Yury Kronn, PhD; Robert C. Eanes; Jeffrey Marrongelle, DC, CCN from ]
Subtle Energy and Energy Medicine - In April 2001, three teams of scientists reported the same conclusion in calculating the contents of the Universe: the mass of all of the galaxies, stars, cosmic dust, planets, people and so on "accounts for less than 5% of it all. The rest takes the form of 'dark matter' (30%) and an even more enigmatic 'dark energy' in space (65%) that is causing galaxies to rush apart from one another at an accelerated rate." What that means is that matter and energy are pouring into the Universe, literally pushing and expanding the Universe apart.

[Ken Wilber Online : Toward A Comprehensive Theory of Subtle Energies Part 2
From Ken Wilber's book ]

Toward A Comprehensive Theory of Subtle Energies: Part 2 - As usual, let's first touch bases with the wisdom traditions, then see how their profound insights might be updated with AQAL.

Common to many traditions is the idea that, in addition to a spectrum of consciousness, there is a spectrum of energy. One such spectrum runs from gross physical energy, to etheric energy, to astral energy, to psychic energy, to causal energy. Without, at this point, arguing the details, let's simply accept that as a type of subtle-energy spectrum that might exist.

In a general sense (which we will refine as we go along), these 5 levels of energy are essentially correlated with the 5 levels of consciousness (e.g., as presented in fig. 1). According to the traditions, these energies are not the same as consciousness; consciousness cannot be reduced to these energies; nor can these energies be reduced to consciousness. Rather, these levels of energy accompany and support their correlative levels of consciousness (so that a gross energy is the support of gross consciousness, a subtle energy is the support of subtle consciousness, a causal energy is the support of causal consciousness, and so on). ...

The major theorists addressed include Rupert Sheldrake, Michael Murphy, William Tiller, Allan Combs, Robert Becker, Deepak Chopra, Hiroshi Motoyama, Marilyn Schlitz, Larry Dossey, and Gary Schwartz, among others.

From William Tiller's book ]

Summary: Subtle energy signals not directly observable by physical means do create a transduced signal at the magnetic vector potential field level…the transduction of the subtle energy signals generates electric and magnetic signals that have observable physical effects. Preliminary research data indicate that the subtle energies somehow influence the electric and/or magnetic fields of the body, and which influences have demonstrable effects on its structure, function, chemistry, and the mind.

Now Comes Torsion Fields - Torsion fields have been studied by several groups of Russian scientists for at least three decades and most of that time in secret. What are torsion fields? According to A. Akimov, these fields come in at least three types: E-fields, S-fields, and G-fields. The E, S, and G stand for Electric, Spin, and Gravity fields. The torsion field and its emanations are subtle energy fields. They are separate and distinct from classical Electric, Magnetic, and Gravity fields.

Interesting papers on bioelectromagnetics and healing

[Journal of Theoretics ]

Keywords: gamma radiation, radiation detection, bioenergy, quantum vacuum, atomic spin, phyton, SQUID, electromagnetic field.

Synopsys: The author proposes that healers, through conscious intention, can increase the electromagnetic field surrounding their hands, (and cause significant fluctuations in external gamma radiation around a subject’s body) which causes permutations in the torsion field and, subsequently, the quantum vacuum itself, which results in a restorative effect.

"Spin Doctors":  A New Paradigm Theorizing the Mechanism of Bioenergy Healing. - Certain alternative healing therapies are theorized as being bioenergetic modalities which utilize the "élan vital" or vital energy. Proponents of these techniques have claimed this previously unrecognized force infuses organisms with life sustaining energies and/or balances existing energies resulting in improved health. This long-standing and widespread belief in the existence of an etheric healing force, called "prana" by the Hindus, "chi" by the Chinese, and "ki" by the Japanese, is the source most often associated with the "soul, spirit, and mind." In fact, there are references made to human energy fields or the aura of the body in 97 different cultures, according to John White in his book "Future Science."

[an article by Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D. ]
Nature's Mind: the Quantum Hologram - A host of observed, but very basic human phenomena, including consciousness itself, have eluded rigorous scientific description by all disciplines of science. This is true, not because of insufficient evidence for a particular phenomenon's existence, but rather for lack of a theoretical construct which could fit within the prevailing paradigms of science. For millennia philosophers have pondered the nature of mind, consciousness and mind/matter interactions but without sufficient knowledge and technical capability to propose properly testable theories. For the past century eminent men and women of science have accumulated thousands of pages of data on mind/mind and mind/matter interactions. Many of the most telling experiments have been criticized, perfected and repeated numerous times during the past five decades, using increasingly sophisticated technologies. Meta analysis of these experiments produce accumulated probabilities against chance occurrences exceeding trillions to one (Radin, 1997). It has required, however, that quantum science mature for seventy-five years and during that period, test, validate and synthesize a number of seemingly outrageous physical concepts arising from quantum theory, before testable theories could arise which offer hope that anomalous mind and consciousness data can be explained (Mitchell and Williams,1996).

Notes on The Biological Quantum System - In physics, a plasma is defined as a gas composed of charged particles. In plasma, the motions of individual atoms is more complex than in a superfluid or superconductor, because the motion of the gas particles is determined not only by the quantum (globally organizing) wave function, but also by local effects. David Bohm, who formulated the wave function for plasma, said at the time that he had the sense that the plasma was "alive".

[Notes on the paper Information, Consciousness, and Health by Robert Jahn ]
Notes on a Paper by Robert Jahn - Physical, biological, and medical science have tended to trade in three conceptual currencies; matter, energy, and most recently, information. Einstein's identification of the transmutability of matter into energy has impelled much of 20th century physics. A somewhat subtler equavalence of energy and information has been established. The author sees a need to include subjective as well as objective information as a scientific currency. He notes the demonstrated capacity of consciousness to alter both subjective and objective elements of information. The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) program was established in 1979 for the sole purpose of rigorous scientific study of the interaction of human consciousness with random physical processes. Three types of research have been persued: anomalous human/machine interactions, remote perception, and theoretical modeling of consciousness.
