Recently, Ark has been reading a book entitled "The Field" by Lynne McTaggert. There are two particular passages I would like to quote because they are backed by scientific studies and they apply most definitely to our "Work".

I would be interested in getting feedback and impressions and whatever strikes you as most significant about this material. Those of you familiar with the Cs material and with alchemy will certainly have an "aha!" moment or two wile reading this. There are also some serious implications that need to be discussed.

This is a bit long, but do read it carefully. I thought it was important to keep in context.

So, read on. (The text was scanned and converted so may have a few errors though I tried to go through it carefully.)

FRITZ-ALBERT POPP thought he had discovered a cure for cancer. It was 1970, a year before Edgar Mitchell had flown to the moon, and Popp, a theoretical biophysicist at the University of Marburg in Germany, had been teaching radiology, the interaction of electromagnetic radiation on biological systems. He'd been examining benzo[a]pyrene, a polycyclic hydrocarbon known to he one of the most lethal carcinogens to humans and had illuminated it with ultraviolet light.

Popp played around with light a lot. He'd been fascinated by the effect of electromagnetic radiation on living systems ever since he'd been a student at the University of Würzburg. During his time as an undergraduate he'd studied in the house, sometimes even in the very room, where Wilhelm Röntgen had accidentally stumbled on the fact that rays of a certain frequency could produce pictures of the hard structures of the body.

Popp had been trying to determine what effect you'd get if you excited this deadly compound with ultraviolet (UV) light. What he discovered was that benzo[a]pyrene had a crazy optical property. It absorbed the light but then re-emitted it at a completely different frequency, like some CIA operative intercepting a communication signal from the enemy and jumbling it up. This was a chemical which doubled as a biological frequency scrambler. Popp then performed the same test on benzo[e]pyrene, another polycyclic hydrocarbon, which is virtually identical in every way to benzo[a]pyrene save for a tiny alteration in its molecular makeup. This tiny difference in one of the compound rings was critical as it rendered benzo[e]pyrene harmless to humans. With this particular chemical, the light passed right through the substance unaltered.

Popp kept puzzling over this difference and kept playing around with light and compounds. He performed his test on thirty-seven other chemicals, some cancer-causing, some not. After a while, it got so that he could predict which substances could cause cancer. In every instance, the compounds that were carcinogenic took the UV light, absorbed it, and changed the frequency.

There was another odd property of these compounds. Each of the carcinogens reacted only to the light at a specific wavelength — 380 nanometres. Popp kept wondering why a cancer-causing substance would be a light scrambler. He began reading the scientific literature, specifically about human biological reactions, and came across information about a phenomenon called 'photo-repair'. It is very well known from biological laboratory experiments that if you can blast a cell with UV light so that 99 per cent of the cell, including its DNA, is destroyed, you can almost entirely repair the damage in a single day just by illuminating the cell with the same wavelength of a very weak intensity. To this day, conventional scientists don't understand this phenomenon, but nobody has disputed it. Popp also knew that patients with a skin condition called xeroderma pigmentosum eventually die of skin cancer because their photo-repair system doesn't work and so doesn't repair solar damage. Popp was shocked to learn that photo-repair works most efficiently at 380 nanometres — the very same wavelength the cancer-causing compounds would react to and scramble.

This was where Popp made his logical leap. Nature was too perfect for this to be simple coincidence. If the carcinogens only react to this wavelength, it must somehow he linked to photo-repair. If so, this would mean that there must he some light in the body responsible for photo-repair. A cancerous compound most cause cancer because it permanently blocks this light and scrambles it, so photo-repair can't work anymore.

Popp was profoundly taken aback by the thought of it all. He decided there and then that this was where his future work would lie. He wrote the paper up, but told few people about it, and was pleased, but not really surprised, when a prestigious journal on cancer agreed to publish it.' In the months before his paper was published, Popp was highly impatient, worried that his idea would be stolen. Any careless disclosure of his to the casual observer might send the listener off to patent Popp's discovery. As soon as the scientific community realized he had discovered a cure for cancer, he would he one of the most celebrated scientists of his day. It was his first foray into a new area of science, and it was going to land him the Nobel prize.

Popp, after all, was used to accolades. Up until that point he'd won nearly every prize you could be awarded in academic life. He'd even picked up the Röntgen prize for his undergraduate diploma work, which consisted of building a small particle accelerator. This prize, named after Popp's hero, Wilhelm Röntgen, is given each year to the top undergraduate in physics at the University of Würzhurg. Popp had studied like a young man possessed. He'd finished his examinations far earlier than the other students. He was awarded his PhD in theoretical physics in record time. The postgraduate work required for German professorships, a five-year proposition for most academics, took Popp just a little more than two years. At the time of his discovery, Popp was already celebrated among his peers for being a whiz kid, not only because of his ability but also because of his dashing, youthful looks.

When his paper was published, Popp was 33 and good-looking, with the set jaw and direct steel-blue gaze of a Hollywood swashbuckler and a boyish face always assumed to be years younger. Even his wife, who was seven years younger than him, was often mistaken as the senior partner. And indeed, there was something of the swashbuckler about him; he had a reputation among his fellow students as the best fencer on campus — a reputation which had been tested in various duels, one of which had left him with a gash all along the left side of his head.

Popp's looks and manner belied his seriousness of purpose. Like Edgar Mitchell, he was a philosopher as much as a scientist. Even as a tiny child he'd been trying to make sense of the world, to find some general solution he could apply to everything in his life. He'd even planned to study philosophy until a teacher persuaded him that physics might be a more fertile territory if he required some single equation that held the key to life. Nevertheless, classical physics, with its assertion of reality as a phenomenon independent of the observer, had left him profoundly suspicious. Popp had read Kant and believed, like the philosopher, that reality was the creation of living systems. The observer must be central to the creation of his world.

Popp was celebrated for his paper. The Deutsche Krebsforschungszentrum (German Cancer Research Center) in Heidelberg invited him to speak before fifteen of the worlds leading cancer specialists during an eight-day conference on all aspects of cancer. The invitation to speak among such exclusive company was an incredible opportunity, and it increased his prestige on his university campus. He arrived in a brand new suit, the most elegant presence at the colloquium, but he was the poorest speaker, struggling with his English to make his voice heard.

In his presentation as well as his paper, Popp's science was unassailable, save for one detail: it assumed that a weak light of 380 nanometres was somehow, being produced in the body. To the cancer researchers, this one detail was some kind of a joke. Don't you think if there were light in the body, they told him, somebody, somewhere would have noticed it by now?

Only a single researcher, a photochemist from the Madame Curie Institute, working on the carcinogenic activity of molecules, was convinced that Popp was right. She invited Popp to work with her in Paris, but would herself die of cancer before he could join her.

The cancer researchers challenged Popp to come up with evidence, and he was ready with a counter challenge. If they would help him build the right equipment, then he would show them where the light was coming from.

Not long after, Popp was approached by a student named Bernhard Ruth, who asked Popp to supervise his work for his PhD dissertation.

'Sure,' said Popp, 'if you can show that there is light in the body.'

Ruth thought it a ridiculous suggestion. Of course, there isn't light in the body.

'Okay,' said Popp. 'So show me evidence that there isn't light, and you can get your PhD.'

This meeting was fortuitous for Popp because Ruth happened to he an excellent experimental physicist. He set to work building equipment which would demonstrate, once and for all, that no light was emanating from the body. Within two years he'd produced a machine resembling a big X-ray detector (EMI 9558QA selected typed), which employed a photomultiplier, enabling it to count light, photon by photon. To this day it is still one of the best pieces of equipment in the field. The machine had to be highly sensitive because it would he measuring what Popp assumed would be extremely weak emissions.

In 1976, they were ready for their first test. They'd grown cucumber seedlings, which are among the easiest of plants to cultivate, and put them in the machine. The photomultiplier picked up that photons, or light waves, of a surprisingly high intensity were being emitted from the seedlings. Ruth was highly sceptical. This had something to do with chlorophyll, he argued — a position Popp shared. They decided that with their next test — some potatoes — they would grow the seedling plants in the dark, so they could not undergo photosynthesis. Nevertheless, when placed in the photomultiplier, these potatoes registered an even higher intensity of light: It was impossible that the effect had anything to do with photosynthesis, Popp realized. What's more, these photons in the living systems he'd examined were more coherent than anything he'd ever seen.

In quantum physics, quantum coherence means that subatomic particles are able to cooperate. These subatomic waves or particles not only know about each other, but also are highly interlinked by bands of common electromagnetic fields, so that they can communicate together. They are like a multitude of tuning forks that all begin resonating together. As the waves get into phase or synch, they begin acting like one giant wave and one giant subatomic particle. It becomes difficult to tell them apart. Many of the weird quantum effects seen in a single wave apply to the whole. Something done to one of them will affect the others.

Coherence establishes communication. It's like a subatomic telephone network. 'The better the coherence, the finer the telephone network and the more refined wave patterns have a telephone. The end result is also a bit like a large orchestra. All the photons are playing together but as individual instruments that are able to carry on playing individual parts. Nevertheless, when you are listening, it's difficult to pick out any one instrument.

What was even more amazing was that Popp was witnessing the highest level of quantum order, or coherence, possible in a living system. Usually; this coherence — called a Bose—Einstein condensate — is only observed in material substances such as superfluids or superconductors studied in the laboratory in very cold places — just a few degrees above absolute zero — and not in the hot and messy environment of a living thing.

Popp began thinking about light in nature. Light, of course, was present in plants, the source of energy used during photosynthesis. When we eat plant foods, it must be, he thought, that we take up the photons and store them. Say that we consume some broccoli. When we digest it, it is metabolized into carbon dioxide (CO,) and water, plus the light stored from the sun and present in photosynthesis. We extract the CO, and eliminate the water, but the light, an electromagnetic wave, must get stored. When taken in by the body, the energy of these photons dissipates so that it is eventually distributed over the entire spectrum of electromagnetic frequencies, from the lowest to the highest. This energy becomes the driving force for all the molecules in our body.

Photons switch on the body's processes like a conductor launching each individual instrument into the collective sound. At different frequencies they perform different functions. Popp found with experimentation that molecules in the cells would respond to certain frequencies and that a range of vibrations from the photons would cause a variety of frequencies in other molecules of the body. Light waves also answered the question of how the body could manage complicated feats with different body parts instantaneously or do two or more things at once. These `biophoton emissions', as he was beginning to call them, could provide a perfect communication system, to transfer information to many cells across the organism. But the single most important question remained: where were they coming from?

A particularly gifted student of his talked him into trying an experiment. It is known that when you apply a chemical called ethidium bromide to samples of DNA, the chemical squeezes itself into the middle of the base pairs of the double helix and causes it to unwind. The student suggested that, after applying the chemical, he and Popp try measuring the light coming off the sample. Popp discovered that the more he increased the concentration of the chemical, the more the DNA unwound, but also the stronger the intensity of light. The less he put in, the lower the light emission., He also found that DNA was capable of sending out a large range of frequencies and that some frequencies seemed linked to certain functions. If DNA were storing this light, it would naturally emit more light once it was unwound.

These and other studies demonstrated to Popp that one of the most essential stores of light and sources of biophoton emissions was DNA. DNA must be like the master tuning fork in the body. It would strike a particular frequency and certain other molecules would follow. It was altogether possible, he realized, that he might have stumbled upon the missing link in current DNA theory that could account for perhaps the greatest miracle of all in human biology: the means by which a single cell turns into a fully formed human being.

One of the greatest mysteries of biology is how we and every other living thing take geometric shape. Modern scientists mostly understand how we have blue eyes or grow to six foot one, and even how cells divide. What is far more elusive is the manner by which these cells know exactly where to place themselves in each stage of the building process, so that an arm becomes an arm rather than a leg, as well as the very mechanism which gets these cells to organize and assemble themselves together into something resembling a three-dimensional human form.

The usual scientific explanation has to do with the chemical interactions between molecules and with DNA, the coiled double helix of genetic coding that holds a blueprint of the body's protein and amino acids. Each DNA helix or chromosome — and the identical twenty-six pairs exist in every one of the thousand million million cells in your body — contains a long chain of nucleotides, or bases, of four different components (shortened to ATCG) arranged in a unique order in every human body. The most favored idea is that there exists a genetic `program' of genes operating collectively to determine shape, or, in the view of neo-Darwinists such as Richard Dawkins, that ruthless genes, like Chicago thugs, have powers to create form and that we are `survival machines' — robot vehicles blindly programmed to preserve the selfish molecules known as genes:

This theory promotes DNA as the Renaissance man of the human body — architect, master builder and central engine room — whose tool for all this amazing activity is a handful of the chemicals which make proteins. The modern scientific view is that DNA somehow manages to build the body and spearhead all its dynamic activities just by selectively turning off and on certain segments, or genes, whose nucleotides, or genetic instructions, select certain RNA molecules, which in turn select from a large alphabet of amino acids the genetic 'words' which create specific proteins. These proteins supposedly are able to both build the body and to switch on and off all the chemical processes inside the cell which ultimately control the running of the body.

Undoubtedly proteins do play a major role in bodily function. Where the Darwinists fall short is in explaining exactly how DNA knows when to orchestrate this and also how these chemicals, all blindly bumping into each other, can operate more or less simultaneously. Each cell undergoes, on average, some 100,000 chemical reactions per second — a process that repeats itself simultaneously across every cell in the body. At any given second, billions of chemical reactions of one sort or another occur. Timing must be exquisite, for if any one of the individual chemical processes in all the millions of cells in the body is off by a fraction, humans would blow themselves up in a matter of seconds. But what the rank and file among geneticists have not addressed is that if DNA is the control room, what is the feedback mechanism which enables it to synchronize the activities of individual genes and cells to carry out systems in unison? What is the chemical or genetic process that tells certain cells to grow into a hand and not a foot? And which cell processes happen at which time?

If all these genes are working together like some unimaginably big orchestra, who or what is the conductor? And if all these processes are due to simple chemical collision between molecules, how can it work anywhere near rapidly enough to account for the coherent behaviours that live beings exhibit every minute of their lives?

When a fertilized egg starts to multiply and produce daughter cells, each begins adopting a structure and function according to its eventual role in the body. Although every daughter contains the same chromosomes with the same genetic information, certain types of cells immediately `know' to use different genetic information to behave differently from others and so certain genes must 'know' that it is their turn to be played, rather than the rest of the pack. Furthermore, somehow these genes know how many of each type of cell must be produced in the right place. Each cell, furthermore, needs to be able to know about its neighboring cells to work out how it fits into the overall scheme. This requires nothing less than an ingenious method of communication between cells at a very early stage of the embryo's development and the same sophistication every moment of our lives.

Geneticists appreciate that cell differentiation utterly depends on cells knowing how to differentiate early on and then somehow remembering that they are different and passing on this vital piece of information to subsequent generations of cells. At the moment, scientists shrug their shoulders as to how this might all be accomplished, particularly at such a rapid pace.

Dawkins himself admits: `Exactly how this eventually leads to the development of a baby is a story which will take decades, perhaps centuries, for embryologists to work out. But it is a fact that it does.''°

In other words, like policemen desperate to close a case, scientists have arrested the most likely suspect without bothering with the painstaking process of gathering proof. The details of this absolute certainty, of how proteins might accomplish this all on their own, are left decidedly imprecise.- As for the orchestration of cell processes, biochemists never actually ask the question."

British biologist Rupert Sheldrake has mounted one of the most constant and vociferous challenges to this approach, arguing that gene activation and proteins no more explain the development of form than delivering building materials to a building site explains the structure of the house built there. Current genetic theory also doesn't explain, he says, how a developing system can self-regulate, or grow normally in the course of development if a part of the system is added or removed, and doesn't explain how an organism regenerates — replacing missing or damaged structures.

In a rush of fevered inspiration while at an ashram in India, Sheldrake worked out his hypothesis of formative causation, which states that the forms of self-organizing living things — everything from molecules and organisms to societies and even entire galaxies — are shaped by morphic fields. These fields have a morphic resonance — a cumulative memory — of similar systems through cultures and time, so that species of animals and plants `remember' not only how to look but also how to act. Rupert Sheldrake uses the term `morphic fields' and an entire vocabulary of his own making to describe the self-organizing properties of biological systems, from molecules to bodies to societies. 'Morphic resonance', is, in his view, 'the influence of like upon like through space and time'. He believes these fields (and he thinks there are many of them) are different from electromagnetic fields because they reverberate across generations with an inherent memory of the correct shape and form.- The more we learn, the easier it is for others to follow in our footsteps.

Sheldrake's theory is beautifully and simply worked out. Nevertheless, by his own admission, it doesn't explain the physics of how this might all be possible, or how all these fields might store this information.-

In biophoton emissions, Popp believed that he had an answer to the question of morphogenesis as well as 'gestaltbildung' — cell coordination and communication — which only could occur in a holistic system, with one central orchestrator. Popp showed in his experiments that these weak light emissions were sufficient to orchestrate the body. The emissions had to be of low intensity because these communications were occurring on a quantum level, and higher intensities would be felt only in the world of the large.

When Popp began researching this area, he realized he was standing on the shoulders of many others, whose work suggested a field of electromagnetic radiation which somehow guides the growth of the cellular body. It was the Russian scientist Alexander Gurwitsch who had to be credited with first discovering what he called 'mitogenetic radiation' in onion roots in the 1920s. Gurwitsch postulated that a field, rather than chemicals alone, was probably responsible for the structural formation of the body. Although Gurwitsch's work was largely theoretical, later researchers were able to show that a weak radiation from tissues stimulates cell growth in neighboring tissues of the same organism.-

Other early studies of this phenomenon — now repeated by many scientists — were carried out in the 194os by neuroanatomist Harold S. Burr from Yale University, who studied and measured electrical fields around living things, specifically. salamanders. Burr discovered that salamanders possessed an energy field shaped like an adult salamander, and that this blueprint even existed in an unfertilized egg.'+

Burr also discovered electrical fields around all sorts of organisms, from molds, to salamanders and frogs, to humans,, Changes in the electrical charges appeared to correlate with growth, sleep, regeneration, light, water, storms, the development of cancer — even the waxing and waning of the moon., For instance, in his experiments with plant seedlings, he discovered electrical fields which resembled the eventual adult plant.

Another of the early interesting experiments was carried out in the early 1920s by Elmer Lund, a researcher at the University of Texas, on hydras, the tiny aquatic animal possessing up to twelve heads capable of regenerating. Lund (and later others) found that he could control regeneration by applying tiny currents through the hydra's body. By using a current strong enough to override the organism's own electrical force, Lund could cause a head to form where a tail should be. In later studies in the 195os, G. Marsh and H. W. Beams discovered that if voltages were high enough, even a flatworm would begin reorganizing — the head would turn into a tail and vice versa. Yet other studies have demonstrated that very young embryos, shorn of their nervous system, and grafted onto a healthy embryo, will actually survive, like a Siamese twin, on the hack of the healthy embryos. Still other experiments have shown that regeneration can even be reversed by passing a small current through a salamander's body.'°

Orthopaedist Robert O. Becker mainly engaged in work concerning attempts to stimulate or speed up regeneration in humans and animals. However, he has also published many accounts of experiments in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery demonstrating a `current of injury' — where animals such as salamanders with amputated limbs develop a change of charge at the site of the stump, whose voltage climbs until the new limb appears.-

Many biologists and physicists have advanced the idea that radiation and oscillating waves are responsible for synchronizing cell division and sending chromosomal instructions around the body. Perhaps the best known of these, Herbert Fröhlich, of the University of Liverpool, recipient of the prestigious Max Planck Medal, an annual award of the German Physical Society to honour the career of an outstanding physicist, was one of the first to introduce the idea that some sort of collective vibration was responsible for getting proteins to cooperate with each other and carry out instructions of DNA and cellular proteins. Fröhlich even predicted that certain frequencies (now termed 'Fröhlich frequencies') just beneath the membranes of the cell could be generated by vibrations in these proteins. Wave communication was supposedly the means by which the smaller activities of proteins, the work of amino acids, for instance, would be carried out and a good way to synchronize activities between proteins and the system as a whole."

In his own studies, Fröhlich had shown that once energy reaches a certain threshold, molecules begin to vibrate in unison, until they reach a high level of coherence. The moment molecules reach this state of coherence, they take on certain qualities of quantum mechanics, including nonlocality. They get to the point where they can operate in tandem.

The Italian physicist Renato Nobili of the Universita degli Studi di Padova amassed experimental proof that electromagnetic frequencies occur in animal tissues. In experiments he found that the fluid in cells holds currents and wave patterns and that these correspond with wave patterns picked up by electroencephalogram (EEC) readings in the brain cortex and scalp!' Russian Nobel prize winner Albert Szent-Györgyi postulated that protein cells act as semiconductors, preserving and passing along the energy of electrons as information.-

However, most of this research, including Gurwitsch's initial work, had largely been ignored, mostly because there was no equipment sensitive enough to measure these tiny particles of light before the invention of Popp's machine. Furthermore, any notions of the use of radiation in cellular communication were utterly swept aside in the middle of the twentieth century, with the discovery of hormones and the birth of biochemistry, which proposed that everything could be explained by hormones or chemical reactions.,

By the time that Popp had his light machine, he was more or less on his own with regard to a radiation theory of DNA. Nevertheless, he doggedly pressed on with his experiments, learning more about the properties of this mysterious light. The more he tested, the more he discovered that all living things — from the most basic of plants or animals, to human beings in all their sophisticated complexity — emitted a permanent current of photons, from only a few to hundreds. The number of photons emitted seemed to be linked to an organism's position on the evolutionary scale: the more complex the organism, the fewer photons being emitted. Rudimentary animals or plants tended to emit 100 photons per square centimetre per second, at a wavelength of 200 to 800 nanometres, corresponding to a very high frequency of electromagnetic wave, well within the visible light range, whereas humans would emit only ten photons in the same area, time and frequency He also discovered something else curious. When light was shone on living cells, the cells would take this light and after a certain delay, shine intensely — a process called `delayed luminescence'. It occurred to Popp that this could be a corrective device. The living system had to maintain a delicate equilibrium of light. In this instance, when it was being bombarded with too much light, it would reject the excess.

Very few places in the world can claim to be pitch black. The only appropriate candidates would be an enclosure where only a handful of photons remain. Popp possessed such a place, a room so dark that only the barest few photons of light per minute could he detected in it. This was the only fit laboratory in which to measure the light of human beings. He began studying the patterns of biophoton emissions of some of his students. In one series of studies, he had one of his experimenters — a 27-year-old healthy young woman — sit in the room every day for nine months, while he took photon readings of a small area of her hand and forehead. Popp then analysed the data, and discovered, to his surprise, that the light emissions followed certain set patterns — biological rhythms at 7, 14, 32, 80 and 270 days, when the emissions were identical, even after one year. Emissions for both the left and right hands were also correlated. If there was an increase in the photons coming off the right hand, so there would be a similar increase in the those of the left hand. On a subatomic level, the waves of each hand were in phase. In terms of light, the right hand knew what the left hand was doing.

Emissions also seemed to follow other natural biological rhythms; similarities were noted by day or night, by week, by month, as though the body were following the world's biorhythms as well as its own.

So far, Popp had studied only healthy individuals and found an exquisite coherence at the quantum level. But what kind of light was present in a person who was ill? He tried out his machine on a series of cancer patients. In every instance, the cancer patients had lost these natural periodic rhythms and also their coherence. The lines of internal communication were scrambled. They had lost their connection with the world. In effect, their light was going out.

Just the opposite occurred with multiple sclerosis: MS was a state of too much order. Individuals with this disease were taking in too much light, and this was inhibiting the ability of cells to do their job. Too much cooperative harmony prevented flexibility and individuality: it is like too many soldiers marching in step when they cross a bridge, causing it to collapse. Perfect coherence is an optimum state just between chaos and order. With too much cooperativity, it was as though individual members of the orchestra were no longer able to improvise. MS patients were drowning in light.,

Popp also examined the effect of stress. In a stressed state, the rate of biophoton emissions went up — a defense mechanism designed to try to return the patient to equilibrium.

All of these phenomena led Popp to think of biophoton emissions as a sort of correction by a living system of Zero Point Field fluctuations. Every system likes to achieve a minimum of free energy. In a perfect world, all waves would cancel each other out by destructive interference. However, this is impossible with the Zero Point Field, where these tiny fluctuations of energy constantly disturb the system. Emitting photons is a compensatory gesture, to stop this disturbance and attempt a sort of energy equilibrium. As Popp thought of it, the Zero Point Field forces a human being to be a candle. The healthiest body would have the lowest light and be closest to zero state, the most desirable state — the closest living things could get to nothingness.

Popp now recognized that what he'd been experimenting with was even more than a cure for cancer or gestaltbildun . Here was a model which provided a better explanation than the current neo-Darwinist theory for how all living things evolve on the planet. Rather than a system of fortunate but ultimately random error, if DNA uses frequencies of all variety as an information tool, this would suggest instead a feedback system of perfect communication through waves which encode and transfer information.

It might also account for the body's capacity for regeneration. The bodies of numerous species of animals have demonstrated the ability to regenerate a lost limb. Experiments with salamanders as far hack as the 1930s have shown that an entire limb, a jaw, even the lens of an eye could be amputated but entirely regenerate as though a hidden blueprint were being followed.

This model might also account for the phenomenon of phantom limbs, the strong physical sense among amputees that a missing arm or leg is still present. Many amputees who complain of utterly realistic cramps, aches or tinglings in the missing limb may be experiencing a true physicality which still exists — a shadow of the limb as imprinted on the Zero Point Field.'

Popp came to realize that light in the body might even hold the key to health and illness. In one experiment he compared the light emitted from free-range eggs to those produced by battery hens. The photons in the eggs produced by the free-range chickens were far more coherent than those in the battery eggs. He went on to use biophoton emissions as a tool for measuring the quality of food. The healthiest food had the lowest and most coherent intensity of light. Any disturbance in the system would increase the production of photons. Health was a state of perfect subatomic communication, and ill health was a state where communication breaks down. We are ill when our waves are out of synch.

Once Popp began publishing his findings, he began to attract the enmity of the scientific community. Many of his fellow German scientists believed that Popp's bright spark had finally gone out. At his university, students wanting to study biophoton emissions began to be censured. By 1980, when Popp's contract as an assistant professor was finished, the university had an excuse to ask him to leave. Two days before the end of his term, university officials marched into his laboratory and demanded that he surrender all his equipment. Fortunately, Popp had been tipped off about the raid and had hidden his photomultiplier in the basement of the lodgings of a sympathetic student. When he left campus, he left with his precious equipment intact.

Popp's treatment at the hands of the University' of ,Marburg resembled that of a criminal without a fair trial. As an assistant professor of some years standing, Popp was entitled to substantial compensation for his years of service, but the university refused to pay him. He had to sue the university to get the 40,000 marks that were due him. He won his money, but his career lay in ashes. He was a married man with three young children and no apparent means of employment. No university at the time was prepared to touch him.

It looked as though Popp's academic career was finished. He spent two years in private industry with Roedler, a pharmaceutical manufacturer of homeopathic remedies, one of the few organisations to entertain his wild theories. Nevertheless, Popp, a stubborn autocrat in his own labs, was equally stubborn in persisting with his work, convinced of its validity. Eventually, he gained a patron in Professor Walter Nagl of the University of Kaiserslautern, who asked Popp to work with him. Once again, Popp's research caused a revolt among the faculty, who demanded his resignation on the grounds that his work was sullying the university's reputation.

Eventually Popp gained employment from the technology Center in Kaiserslautern, which is largely sponsored by government grants for application research. It would take some 25 years for him to gather converts from among the scientific community. Slowly a few select scientists from around the globe began to consider that the body's communication system might he a complex network of resonance and frequency. Eventually they would form the International Institute of Biophysics, composed of fifteen groups of scientists from international centres all around the world. Popp had found offices for his new group in Neuss, near Düsseldorf. The brother of a Nobel prizewinner, the grandson of Alexander Gurwitsch, a nuclear physicist from Boston University and nuclear research laboratory CERN in Geneva, two Chinese biophysicists — noted scientists from around the globe at last were beginning to agree with him. Popp's fortunes were beginning to turn. Suddenly he was receiving offers and contracts for professorships from reputable universities around the world.

Popp and his new colleagues went on to study the light emissions of several organisms of the same species, first with an experiment with a type of water flea called Daphnia. What they found was nothing short of astonishing. Tests with a photomultiplier showed that the water fleas were sucking up the light emitted from each other. Popp tried the same experiment on small fish and found that they were doing the same. According to his photomultiplier, sunflowers were like a biological vacuum cleaner, moving in the direction of the most solar photons in order to vacuum them up. Even bacteria would swallow photons from the medium they had been placed in.

It began to dawn on Popp that these emissions had a purpose outside the body. Wave resonance wasn't simply being used to communicate inside the body, but between living things. Two healthy beings were engaged in 'photon sucking', as he called it, by exchanging photons. Popp realized that this exchange might unlock the secret of some of the animal kingdom's most persistent conundrums: how schools of fish or flocks of birds create perfect and instantaneous coordination. Many experiments on the homing ability of animals demonstrate that it has nothing to do with following habitual trails or scents or even the electromagnetic fields of the earth, but some silent communication, acting like an invisible rubber band, even when animals are separated by miles from humans.-' For humans there was another possibility. If we could take in the photons of other living things, we also might he able to use the information from them to correct our own light if it went awry.

Popp had begun experimenting with such an idea. If some cancer- causing chemicals could alter the body's biophoton emissions, then it might be the case that other substances could reintroduce better communication. Popp wondered whether certain plant extracts could change the character of biophoton emissions of cancer cells, so that they would began to communicate again with the rest of the body. He began experimenting with a number of non-toxic substances purported to be successful in treating cancer. In all but one instance, the substances only increased the photons from tumor cells, making it even more deadly to the body. The single success story was mistletoe, which seemed to help the body to 'resocialize' the photon emission of tumor cells hack to normal. In one of numerous cases, Popp came across a woman in her thirties with breast and vaginal cancer. Popp tried mistletoe and other plant extracts on samples of her cancerous tissue and found that one particular mistletoe remedy created coherence in the tissue similar to that of the body. With the agreement of her doctor, the woman began forgoing any treatment other than this mistletoe extract. After a year, all her laboratory tests were virtually hack to normal. A woman who was given up as a terminal cancer case had her proper light restored, just by taking a herb.

To Fritz-Albert Popp, homeopathy was another example of photon sucking. He had begun to think of it as a `resonance absorber'. Homeopathy rests upon the notion that like is treated with like. A plant extract that at full strength can cause hives in the body is used in an extremely dilute form to cure them. If a rogue frequency in the body could produce certain symptoms, it followed that the high dilution of a substance which would produce the same symptoms would still carry those oscillations. Like a tuning fork in resonance, a suitable homeopathic solution might attract and then absorb the wrong oscillations, allowing the body to return to normal.

Popp thought that electromagnetic molecular signalling might even explain acupuncture. According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, the human body has a meridian system running deep in the tissues of the body through which flows an invisible energy which the Chinese term the qi, or life force. The qi supposedly enters the body through these acupuncture points and flows to deeper organ structures (which do not correspond to those of Western human biology), providing energy (and thus the life force). Illness occurs when there is a blockage of this energy anywhere along the pathways. According to Popp, the meridian system may work like wave guides transmitting particular bodily energy to specific zones.

Scientific studies show that many acupuncture points on the body have a dramatically decreased electrical resistance compared with points on the skin surrounding it (10 kilo-ohms at the center of a point, compared with 3 mega-ohms in the surrounding skin).- Research has also shown that painkilling endorphins and the steroid cortisol are released through the body when the points are stimulated at low frequency, and important mood-regulating neurotransmitters like serotonin and norepinephrine, at high frequency. The same doesn't occur when the skin surrounding these points is stimulated. Yet other research has proved that acupuncture can cause blood vessels to dilate and increase blood flow to distant organs in the body. Other research demonstrates the existence of meridians as well as the effectiveness of acupuncture for a variety of conditions. Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Robert Becker, who performed a great deal of research on electromagnetic fields in the body, designed a special electrode recording device which would roll along the body like a pizza cutter. After many studies it showed up electrical charges on the same places on every one of the people tested, all corresponding to Chinese meridian points.

There were many possibilities to explore, some of which might pan out, and some not. But Popp was convinced of one thing: his theory of DNA and biophoton emission was correct and this drove the processes of the body. There was no doubt in his mind that biology was driven by the quantum process he'd observed. All he needed were other scientists with experimental evidence to show how it might he so.



IN A WHITE PORTAKABIN in Clamart, in the unfashionable outskirts of Paris, a tiny heart, propped atop a bit of purpose-built scaffolding, carried on heating. It was being kept alive courtesy of a small team of French scientists, who administered the right combination of oxygen and carbon dioxide, part of the type of state-of-the-art surgical technique used for heart transplants. In this instance, there was no donor or recipient; the heart had long been divested of its owner, a prime male Hartley guinea pig, and the scientists were only interested in the organ itself and how it was about to react. They'd applied acetylcholine and histamine, two known vasodilators, then atropine and mepyramine, both agonists to the others, and finally measured coronary flow, plus such mechanical changes as beat rate.

There were no surprises here. As expected, the histamine and acetylcholine produced increased blood flow in the coronary arteries, while the mepyramine and atropine inhibited it. The only unusual aspect of the experiment was that the agents of change weren't actually pharmacological chemicals but low-frequency waves of the electromagnetic signals of the cells recorded using a purpose-designed transducer and a computer equipped with a sound card. It was these signals, which take the form of electromagnetic radiation of less than 20 kilohertz, which were applied to the guinea pig heart, and were responsible for speeding it up, just as the chemicals themselves would.

The signal effectively could take the place of the chemicals, for the signal is the molecule's signature. The scientific team, which had successfully substituted it for the original, were quietly aware of the explosive nature of their achievement. Through their efforts, the usual theories of molecular signaling and how cells `talk' to each other had been profoundly modified. They were beginning to demonstrate in the laboratory what Popp had just proposed — that each molecule in the universe had a unique frequency and the language it used to speak to the world was a resonating wave.

As Popp was pondering the larger implications of biophoton emissions, a French scientist had been examining the reverse: the effect of this light on individual molecules. Popp believed that biophoton emissions orchestrated all bodily processes, and the French scientist was finding out the exquisite way in which it worked. The biophoton vibrations Popp had observed in the body caused molecules to vibrate and create their own signature frequency, which acted as its unique driving force and also its means of communication. The French scientist had paused to listen to these tiny oscillations and heard the symphony of the universe. Every molecule of our bodies was playing a note that was being heard round the world.

This discovery represented a permanent and arduous detour in the career of French scientist Jacques Benveniste, which had, up until the 198os, followed a distinguished, predictable arc. Benveniste, a doctor of medicine, had put in his residency in the Paris hospital system, and then moved into research into allergies, becoming a specialist in the mechanisms of allergy and inflammation. He'd been appointed research director at the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM) and distinguished himself by discovering PAF, or platelet activating factor, which is involved in the mechanism of allergies such as asthma.

Continuation of previous post:

At So, Benveniste had the world at his feet. There was no doubt that he would look forward to international acclaim among the establishment. He was proud of being French in a field not necessarily well represented by his countrymen since Descartes. Rumours abounded about the possibility that Benveniste would be one of the few French biologists to be considered as a possible recipient for the Nobel prize. His papers were among those most often cited by scientists at INSERM, a measure of distinction and standing. He'd even received the Silver Medal from CNRS, one of the most prestigious French scientific honors. Benveniste possessed craggy good looks, a regal bearing, and a rakish sense of humor, and he'd been married for 30 years. Nevertheless, neither his marital status nor his present contentment in the slightest curbed a tendency to innocently flirt, an attribute that, as a Frenchman, he considered more or less mandatory.

And then, in 1984, this bright and assured future was accidentally derailed by what turned out to be a small error in computation. Benveniste's laboratory at INSERM had been studying basophil degranulation — the reaction of certain white blood cells to allergens. One day, Elisabeth Davenas, one of his best laboratory technicians, came to him and reported that she'd seen and recorded a reaction in the white blood cells, even though there had been too few molecules of the allergen in the solution. This had all come about as the result of a simple error in calculation. She had thought the starting solution was more concentrated than it was. In diluting it to what she thought was the usual concentration, she had inadvertently diluted the solution to the point where very few of the original antigen molecules remained.

After examining the data, Jacques virtually shooed her out of his office. The results you are claiming are impossible, he declared, because there are no molecules here.

`You have been experimenting with water,' he told her. `Go hack and do the work over.'

It was only when she tried to repeat the experiment with the same dilution and came up with the same results that he realized that Elisabeth, a meticulous worker, might have stumbled onto something worth investigating. For several weeks, Elisabeth kept returning to his office with the same inexplicable data, showing powerful biological effects from a solution so weakened that it couldn't have enough of the antigen to have caused them, and Jacques attempted to come up with ever more far-fetched explanations to fit these results to some recognizable biological theory. Perhaps it was the presence of a second antibody reacting later, or maybe the reaction to an undisclosed second antigen, he thought. After observing these results, one of the tutors in his laboratory, a doctor who was also a homeopath, happened to remark that these experiments were quite similar to the principle of homeopathy. In that system of medicine, solutions of active substance are diluted to the point where there is virtually none of the original substance left, only its `memory'. At the time, Jacques didn't even know what homeopathy was — that's how classical a doctor he was — but the research scientist in him had had his appetite sufficiently whetted. He asked Elisabeth to dilute the solutions even more, so that absolutely none of the original active substance remained. In these new studies, no matter how dilute the solution, which was, by now, just plain water, Elisabeth kept getting consistent results, as if the active ingredient were still there.

Because of his background as an allergy specialist, Jacques had used a standard allergy test for his studies, the purpose of which was to effect a typical allergic response in human cells. He isolated basophils, a type of white blood cell which contains antibodies of immunoglobulin E (IgE) type on its surface. It is these cells which are responsible for hypersensitivity reactions in people with allergies.

Jacques chose IgE cells because they easily respond to allergens such as pollen or dust mites, releasing histamine from their intracellular granules, and also to certain anti-IgE antibodies. If this kind of a cell is affected by something, you're not likely to miss it. Another advantage of the IgE is that he could test their staining properties through a test he'd developed and patented at INSERM. Because basophils, like most cells, have a jelly-like appearance, when you're studying them at a lab, you need to stain them in order to see them. But staining, even with a standard dye such as toluidine blue, is subject to change, depending upon many factors — the health of the host, say, and the influence of other cells upon the original. When these IgE cells are exposed to anti-IgE antibodies, it changes their ability to absorb the dye. Anti-IgE has been referred to as a kind of 'biological paint-stripper'' because its ability to inhibit the dye is so effective that it can virtually render the basophils invisible again.

The final logic in Benveniste's choice of anti-IgE had to do with the fact that these particular molecules are especially big. If you are attempting to see if water retained its effect even when all anti-IgE molecules had been filtered out of it, there would he no chance that any of them might be accidentally left behind.

In the studies, conducted over four years between 1985 and 1989, and painstakingly recorded in the laboratory hooks of Elisabeth Davenas, Benveniste's team created high dilutions of the anti-IgE by pouring one- tenth of the previous solution into the next tube and filling it up by adding nine parts of a standard solvent. Each dilution was then vigorously shaken (or succussed, as it is technically known), as it is in homeopathic preparations. In total, the team used dilutions like these, of one part solution to nine parts solvent, then kept diluting until there was one part of solution to ninety-nine parts solvent and even one part solution to nine hundred and ninety-nine parts solvent.

Each one of the high dilutions was successively added to the basophils, which were then counted under the microscope. To Jacques' surprise, as much as anyone's, they discovered that they were recording effects in inhibiting dye absorption by up to 66 per cent, even with dilutions watered down to one part in io(-. En later experiments, when the dilutions were serially diluted a hundred-fold, eventually to one part in 1(Y, where there was virtually no possibility that a single molecule of the IgE was left, the basophils were still affected.

The most unexpected phenomenon was yet to come. Although the potency of the anti-IgE was at its highest at concentrations of one part in r000 (the third decimal dilution) and then started to decrease with each successive dilution, as you might logically expect, the experiment took a U-turn at the ninth dilution. The effect of the highly dilute IgE began increasing at this point and continued to increase, the more it was diluted., As homeopathy had always claimed, the weaker the solution, the more powerful its effect.

Benveniste joined forces with five different laboratories in four countries, France, Israel, Italy and Canada, all of whom were able to replicate his results. The thirteen scientists then jointly published the results of their four-year collaboration in a 1988 edition of the highly prestigious Nature magazine, showing that if solutions of antibodies were diluted repeatedly until they no longer contained a single molecule of the antibody, they still produced a response from immune cells., The authors concluded that none of the molecules they'd started with were present in certain dilutions and that:

specific information must have been transmitted during the dilution/shaking process. Water could act as a template for the molecule, for example, by an infinite hydrogen-bonded network, or electric and magnetic fields . . . The precise nature of this phenomenon remains unexplained.
To the popular press, which pounced on the published paper, Benveniste had discovered `the memory of water', and his studies were widely regarded as making a valid case for homeopathy. Benveniste himself realized that his results had repercussions far beyond any theory of alternative medicine. If water were able to imprint and store information from molecules, this would have an impact on our understanding of molecules and how they `talk' to one another in our bodies, as molecules in human cells, of course, are surrounded by water. In any living cell, there are ten thousand molecules of water for each molecule of protein.

Nature also undoubtedly understood the possible repercussions of this finding on the accepted laws of biochemistry. The editor, John Maddox, had consented to publish the article, but he did so after taking an unprecedented step — placing an editorial addendum at the bottom of the article:

Editorial reservation

Readers of this article may share the incredulity of the many referees who have commented on several versions of it during the past several months. The essence of the result is that an aqueous solution of an antibody retains its ability to evoke a biological response even when diluted to such an extent that there is a negligible chance of their being a single molecule in any sample. There is no physical basis for such an activity. With the kind collaboration of Professor Benveniste, Nature has therefore arranged for independent investigators to observe repetitions of the experiments. A report of this investigation will appear shortly.
In his own editorial, Maddox also invited readers to pick holes in the Benveniste study.

Benveniste was a proud man, not afraid to wave a fist in the face of the Establishment. He was not only willing to stick his head above the parapet in choosing to publish in one of the most conservative journals in the whole of the scientific community, but then, when they doubted him, he eagerly snatched up the gauntlet they'd thrown down by agreeing to their request to reproduce his results at his laboratory.

Four days after publication, Maddox himself arrived with what Benveniste described as a scientific 'fraud squad', composed of Walter Stewart, a well-known quackbuster, and James Randi, a professional magician who tended to he called in to expose scientific work that had actually been arrived at by sleight of hand. Were a magician, a journalist and a quackbuster the best possible team to assess the subtle changes in biological experimentation, wondered Benveniste. Under their watchful eye, Elisabeth Davenas performed four experiments, one blinded, all of which, Benveniste said, were successful. Nevertheless, Maddox and his team disputed the findings and decided to change the experimental protocol and tighten the coding procedures, even, in a melodramatic gesture, taping the code to the ceiling. Stewart insisted on carrying out some of the experiments himself and changed some of their design even though, Benveniste claimed, he was untrained in these particular experiments.

Under their new protocol, and amid a charged atmosphere implying that the INSERM team were hiding something, three more tests were done and shown not to work. At this point, Maddox and his team had their results and promptly left, first asking for photocopies of too of Benveniste's papers.

Soon after their five-day visit, Nature published a report entitled 'High dilution experiments a delusion'. It claimed that Benveniste's lab had not observed good scientific protocol. It discounted supporting data from other labs. Maddox expressed surprise that the studies didn't work all the time, when this is standard in biological studies — one reason Benveniste had conducted more than 500o trials before publishing. The Maddox judgment also failed to note that the staining test is highly sensitive and can be tipped with the slightest change in experimental condition, so that some donor blood isn't affected by even high concentrations of anti-IgE. They expressed dismay that two of Benveniste's co-authors were being funded by a manufacturer of homeopathic medicines. Industry funding is standard in scientific research, countered Benveniste. Were they implying that the results were altered to please the sponsor?

Benveniste fought back with an impassioned response and a plea for scientific open-mindedness:

Salem witchhunts or McCarthy-like prosecutions will kill science. Science flourishes only in freedom... The only way definitively to establish conflicting results is to reproduce them. It may be that all of us are wrong in good faith. This is no crime but science as usual.'
Nature's results had a devastating effect upon Benveniste's reputation and his position at INSERM. A scientific council of INSERM censured his work, claiming in near unanimous statements that he should have performed other experiments `before asserting that certain phenomena have escaped two hundred years of chemical research.' INSERM refused to listen to Benveniste's objections about the quality of the Nature investigation and prevented him from continuing. Rumours circulated about mental imbalance and fraud. Letters poured in to Nature and other publications, calling his work 'dubious science', a 'cruel hoax' and 'pseudo-science'."

Benveniste was given several chances to gracefully how out of this work and no professional reason to continue to pursue it. By standing by his original work, he was certain to destroy the career he'd been building. Benveniste had got to the top of his position at INSERM and had no desire to he director. He'd never had ambition for a career, but only wished to carry on with his research. By that time, he also felt he had no choice — the genie was already out of the bottle. He had uncovered evidence that demolished everything he had been taught to believe about cell communication, and there was now no turning back. But also there was the undeniable thrill of it. Here was the most compelling research he could think of, the most explosive of results he could imagine. This was like, as he enjoyed putting it, peering under the skirt of nature. Benveniste left INSERM, and sought support from private sources such as DigiBio, which enabled him and Didier Guillonnet, a gifted engineer from Ecole Centrale Paris, who joined him in 1997, to carry on their work. After the Nature fiasco, they moved on to 'digital biology', a discovery they made not in a single moment of inspiration, but after eight years of following a logical trail of cautious experimentation.)

The memory of water studies had prompted Benveniste to examine the manner in which molecules communicate within a living cell. In all aspects of life, molecules must speak to each other. If you are excited, your adrenals pump out more adrenaline, which must tell specific receptors to get your heart to heat faster. The usual theory, called the Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR), is that two molecules that match each other structurally exchange specific (chemical) information, which occurs when they bump into each other. It's rather like a key finding its own keyhole (which is why this theory is often also called the key—keyhole, or lock-and-key interaction model). Biologists still adhere to the mechanistic notions of Descartes that there can only he reaction through contact, some sort of impulsive force. Although they accept gravity, they reject any other notions of action at a distance.

If these occurrences are due to chance, there's very little statistical hope of their happening, considering the universe of the cell. In the average cell, which contains one molecule of protein for every ten thousand molecules of water, molecules jostle around the cell like a handful of tennis balls floating about in a swimming pool. The central problem with the current theory is that it is too dependent upon chance and also requires a good deal of time. It can't begin to account for the speed of biological processes, like anger, joy, sadness or fear. But if instead each molecule has its own signature frequency, its receptor or molecule with the matching spectrum of features would tune into this frequency, much as your radio tunes into a specific station, even over vast distances, or one tuning fork causes another tuning fork to oscillate at the same frequency. They get in resonance — the vibration of one body is reinforced by the vibration of another body at or near its frequency. As these two molecules resonate on the same wavelength, they would then begin to resonate with the next molecules in the biochemical reaction, thus creating, in Benveniste's words, a 'cascade' of electromagnetic impulses travelling at the speed of light. This, rather than accidental collision, would better explain how you initiate a virtually instantaneous chain reaction in biochemistry. It also is a logical extension of the work of Fritz Popp. If photons in the body excite molecules along the entire spectrum of electromagnetic frequencies, it is logical that they would have their own signature frequency.

Benveniste's experiments decisively demonstrated that cells don't rely on the happenstance of collision but on electromagnetic signalling at low frequency (less than 20 kHz) electromagnetic waves. The electromagnetic frequencies that Benveniste has studied correspond with frequencies in the audio range, even though they don't emit any actual noise that we can detect. All sounds on our planet — the sound of water rippling in a stream, a crack of thunder, a shot fired, a bird chirping — occur at low frequency, between 20 hertz and 20 kilohertz, the range in which the human ear can hear.

According to Benveniste's theory, two molecules are then tuned into each other, even at long distance, and resonate to the same frequency. These two resonating molecules would then create another frequency, which would then resonate with the next molecule or group of molecules, in the next stage of the biological reaction. This would explain, in Benveniste's view, why tiny changes in a molecule — the switching of a peptide, for example would have a radical effect on what that molecule actually does.

This is not so farfetched, considering what we already know about how molecules vibrate. Both specific molecules and intermolecular bonds emit certain specific frequencies ,which can he detected billions of light-rears away, through the most sensitive of modern telescopes. "These frequencies have long been accepted by physicists, but no one in the biological community save Fritz-Albert Popp and his predecessors has paused to consider whether they actually have some purpose. Others before Benveniste, such as Robert O. Becker and Cyril Smith, had conducted extensive experimentation on electromagnetic frequencies in living things. Benveniste's contribution was to show that molecules and atoms had their own unique frequencies by using modern technology both to record this frequency and to use the recording itself for cellular communication.


From 1991, Benveniste demonstrated that you could transfer specific molecular signals simply by using an amplifier and electromagnetic coils. Four years later, he was able to record and replay these signals using a multimedia computer. Over thousands of experiments, Benveniste and Guillonnet recorded the activity of the molecule on a computer and replayed it to a biological system ordinarily sensitive to that substance. In every instance, the biological system has been fooled into thinking it has been interacting with the substance itself and acted accordingly, initiating the biological chain reaction, just as it would if in the actual presence of the genuine molecule. Other studies have also shown that Benveniste's team could erase these signals and stop activity in the cells through an alternating magnetic field, work they performed in collaboration with Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Medudon, France. the inescapable conclusion: as Fritz-Albert Popp theorized, molecules speak to each other in oscillating frequencies. It appeared that the Zero Point Field creates a medium enabling the molecules to speak to each other nonlocally and virtually instantaneously.

The DigiBio team tested out digital biology on five types of studies: basophilic activation; neutrophilic activation; skin testing; oxygen activity; and, most recently, plasma coagulation. Like whole blood, plasma, the yellowy liquid of the blood, which carries protein and waste products, will coagulate. To control for that ability. you must first remove the calcium in the plasma, by chelating — chemically grabbing — it. If you then add water with calcium to the blood, it will coagulate, or clot. Adding heparin, a classic anti-coagulant drug, will prevent the blood from clotting, even in the presence of the calcium.

In Benveniste's most recent study, he took a test-tube of this plasma with calcium chelated out, then added water containing calcium which has been exposed to the 'sound of heparin transmitted via the signature digitized electromagnetic frequency. As with all his other experiments, the signature frequency of heparin works as though the molecules of heparin itself were there: in its presence, the blood is more reluctant than usual to coagulate.

In perhaps the most dramatic of his experiments, Benveniste showed that the signal could be sent across the world by email or mailed on a floppy disk. Colleagues of his at Northwestern University in Chicago recorded signals from ovalbumin (Ova), acetylcholine (Ach), dextran and water. The signals from the molecules were recorded on a purpose designed transducer and a computer equipped With a sound card. The signal was then recorded on a floppy disk and sent by regular mail to the DigiBio Laboratory in Clamart. In later experiments, the signals were also sent by email as attached documents. The Clamart team then exposed ordinary water to the signals of this digital Ova or Ach or ordinary Water and infused either the exposed water or the ordinary water to isolated guinea pig hearts. All the digitised water produced highly significant changes in coronary flow, compared with the controls — which just contained ordinary, non-exposed water. The effects from the digitized water were identical to effects produced on the heart by the actual substances themselves.-

Giuliano Preparata and his colleague Emilio Del Giudice, two Italian physicists at the Milan Institute for Nuclear Physics, were working on a particularly ambitious project — to explain why certain matter in the world stays in one piece. Scientists understand gases to a large extent through the laws of classical physics, but are still largely ignorant of the actual workings of liquids and solids — that is, any sort of condensed matter. Gases arc easy because they consist of individual atoms or molecules which behave individually in large spaces. Where scientists have trouble is with atoms or molecules packed tightly' together and bow they behave as a group. Any physicist is at a loss to tell you why water doesn't just evaporate into gas or why atoms in a chair or a tree stay that way, particularly if they are only supposed to communicate with their most immediate neighbor and he held together by short-range forces.-

Water is among the most mysterious of substances, because it is a compound formed from two gases, yet it is liquid at normal temperatures and pressures. In their studies, Del Giudice and Preparata have demonstrated mathematically that when closely packed together, atoms and molecules exhibit a collective behavior, forming What they have termed 'coherent domains'. They are particularly interested in this phenomenon as it occurs in water. In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, Preparata and Del Giudice demonstrated that water molecules create coherent domains, much as a laser does. Light is normally, composed of photons of many wavelengths, like colors in a rainbow', but photons in a laser have a high degree of coherence, a situation akin to a single coherent wave, like one intense color. These single wavelengths of water molecules appear to become 'informed' in the presence of other molecules — that is, they tend to polarize around any charged molecule — storing and carrying its frequency so that it may be read at a distance. This would mean that water is like a tape recorder, imprinting and carrying information whether the original molecule is still there or not. The shaking of the containers, as is done in homeopathy, appears to act as a method of speeding up this process., So vital is water to the transmission of energy and information that Benveniste's own studies actually demonstrate that molecular signals cannot he transmitted in the body unless you do so in the medium of water. In Japan, a physicist called Kunio Yasuo of the Research Institute for Information and Science, Notre Dame Seishin University in Okayama, also found that water molecules have some role to play in organizing discordant energy into coherent photons — a process called 'superradiance'.

This suggests that water, as the natural medium of all cells, acts as the essential conductor of a molecule's signature frequency in all biological processes and that water molecules organize themselves to form a pattern on which can he imprinted wave information. If Benveniste is right, water not only sends the signal but also amplifies it.

The most important aspect of scientific innovation is not necessarily the original discovery, but the people who copy the work. It is only the replication of initial data that legitimizes your research and convinces the orthodox scientific community that you might be onto something. Despite the virtually universal derision of Benyeniste's results by the Establishment, reputable research slowly began to appear elsewhere. In 1992, LASER (the Federation of ;American Societies for Experimental Biology) held a symposium, organized by the International Society for Bioelectricity, examining the interactions of electromagnetic fields with biological systems.- Numerous other scientists have replicated high-dilution experiments,' and several others have endorsed and successfully repeated experiments using digitized information for molecular communication., Benveniste's latest studies were replicated eighteen times in an independent lab in Lyon, France, and in three other independent centres.

Several years after the memory of water Nature episode, scientific teams still tried to prove Benveniste wrong. Professor V1adelene Ennis of Queen's University in Belfast joined a large pan-European research team, with hopes of showing, once and for all, that homeopathy and water memory were utter nonsense. A consortium of four independent laboratories in Italy, France, Belgium and Holland, led by Professor M. Roberfroid of the Catholic University of Louvain, in Brussels, carried out a variation of Benveniste's original experiment with basophil degranulation. The experiment was impeccable. None of the researchers knew which was the homeopathic solution and which pure water. All the solutions had even been prepared by labs which had nothing further to do with the trial. Results were also coded and decoded and tabulated by an independent researcher also unconnected with the study.

In the end, three of four labs got statistically significant results with the homeopathic preparations. Professor Ennis still didn't believe these results and put them down to human error. To eliminate the possible vagaries of humans, she applied an automated counting protocol to the figures she had. Nevertheless, even the automated results showed the same. The high dilutions of the active ingredient worked, whether the active ingredient was actually present or water so dilute that none of the original substance remained. Ennis was forced to concede: 'The results compel me to suspend my disbelief and to start searching for rational explanations for our findings.'"

This represented the last straw to Benveniste. If Ennis's results were negative, they would have been published in Nature, thereby forever consigning his work to the trash heap. Because their results agreed with his, they were published in a relatively obscure journal, a few years after the event, a guarantee that no one would really notice.

Besides Ennis's results, there were all the scientific studies of homeopathy which lent support to Benveniste's findings. Excellent, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials showed that homeopathy works for, among many conditions, asthma,- diarrhea," upper respiratory tract infections in children-3 and even heart disease., Of at least 105 trials of homeopathy, 81 showed positive results.

The most unassailable were carried out in Glasgow by Dr David Reilly, whose double-blind, placebo-controlled studies showed that homeopathy works for asthma, with all the usual checks and balances of a pristine scientific study. Despite the scientific design of the trial, an editorial in The Lancet, redolent of Nature' response to Benveniste's initial findings, agreed to publish the results but simply refused to accept them:

What could be more absurd than the notion that a substance is therapeutically active in dilutions so great that the patient is unlikely to receive a single molecule of it? [said the editorial]. Yes, the dilution principle of homeopathy is absurd; so the reason for any therapeutic effect presumably lies elsewhere.'

On reading The Lancet's on-going debate on the Reilly studies, Benveniste couldn't resist responding:

This recalls, inexorably, the wonderfully self-sufficient contribution of a nineteenth-century French academician to the heated debate over the existence of meteorites, which animated the scientific community at the time: 'Stones do not fall from the sky because there are no stones in the sky.'"
Benveniste was so tired of laboratories trying and sometimes failing to replicate his work that he had Guillonnet build him a robot. Nothing much more than a box with an arm which moves in three directions, the robot could handle everything but the initial measuring. All one had to do was to hand it the bare ingredients plus a bit of plastic tubing, push the button and leave. The robot would take the water containing calcium, place it into a coil, play the heparin signal for five minutes, so that the water is 'informed', then mix the informed water in its test-tube with the plasma, put the mixture in a measuring device, read the results and offer them up to whoever is doing the investigation. Benveniste and his team carried out hundreds of experiments using their robot, but the main idea was to hand out a batch of these devices to other labs. In this way, both the other centres and the Clamart team can ensure that the experiment is universally standardized and an identical protocol carried out correctly.

While working with his robot, Benveniste discovered on a large scale what Popp had witnessed in the laboratory with his water fleas — evidence that the electromagnetic waves from living things were having an effect on their environment.

Once Benveniste had got his robot up and working, he discovered that generally it worked well, except for certain occasions. Those occasions were always the days when a particular woman was present in the lab. Cherche la femme, Benveniste thought, although in the Lyon lab, which was replicating their results, a similar situation occurred, this time with a man. In his own lab, Benveniste conducted several experiments, by hand and by robot, to isolate what it was the woman was doing which prevented the experiment from working. Her scientific method was impeccable and she followed the protocol to the letter. The woman herself, a doctor and biologist, was an experienced, meticulous worker. Nevertheless, on no occasion did she get any results. After six months of such studies there was only a single conclusion: something about her very presence was preventing a positive result.

It was vital that he got to the nub of the problem, for Jacques knew what was at stake. He might send his robot to a laboratory in Cambridge, and if they got poor results as a result of a particular person, the lab would conclude that the experiment itself was at fault, when the problem had to do with something or someone in the environment.

There is nothing subtle about biological effects. Change the structure or shape of a molecule only slightly and you will completely alter the ability of the molecule to slot in with its receptor cells. On or off, success or failure. A drug works or it doesn't. In this case, something in the woman in question was completely interfering with the communication of cells in his experiment.

Benveniste suspected that the woman must be emitting some form of waves that were blocking the signals. Through his work he developed a means of testing for these, and he soon discovered that she was emitting electromagnetic fields which were interfering with the communication signalling of his experiment. Like Popp's carcinogenic substances, she was a frequency scrambler. This seemed too incredible to believe — more the realm of witchcraft than science, Benveniste thought. He then had the particular woman hold a tube of homeopathic granules in her hand for five minutes, and then tested the tube with his equipment. All activity — all molecular signaling— had been erased.'

Benveniste wasn't a theorist. He wasn't even a physicist. He'd accidentally trespassed into the world of electromagnetism and now was stuck here, experimenting in what for him was completely foreign territory — the memory of water and the ability of molecules to vibrate at very high and very low frequencies. These were the two mysteries that he was getting no closer to solving. All that he could do was to carry on where he felt most comfortable — with his laboratory experiments — showing that these effects were real. But one thing did seem clear to him. For some unknown reason that he didn't dwell upon, these signals also appeared to be sent outside the body and somehow were being taken in and listened to.


[…]

Jahn and Dunne began to formulate a theory. If reality resulted from some elaborate interaction of consciousness with its environment, then consciousness, like subatomic particles of matter, might also be based on a system of probabilities. One of the central tenets of quantum physics, first proposed by Louis de Broglie, is that subatomic entities can behave either as particles (precise things with a set location in space) or waves (diffuse and unbounded regions of influence which can flow through and interfere with other waves). They began to chew over the idea that consciousness had a similar duality. Each individual consciousness had its own `particulate' separateness, but was also capable of 'wave-like' behavior, in which it could flow through any harriers or distance, to exchange information and interact with the physical world. At certain times, subatomic consciousness would get in resonance with — beat at the same frequency as — certain subatomic matter. In the model they began to assemble, consciousness `atoms' combined with ordinary atoms — those, say, of the REG machine — and created a `consciousness molecule' in which the whole was different from its component parts. The original atoms would each surrender their individual entities to a single larger, more complex entity. On the most basic level, their theory was saying, you and your REG machine develop coherence.,,

Certainly some of their results seemed to favor this interpretation. Jahn and Dunne had wondered if the tiny effect they were observing with individuals would get any larger if two or more people tried to influence the machine in tandem. The PEAR lab ran a series of studies using pairs of people, in which each pair was to act in concert when attempting to influence the machines.

Of 256,5oo trials, produced by fifteen pairs in forty-two experimental series, many pairs also produced a `signature' result, which didn't necessarily resemble the effect of either individual alone.. Being of the same sex tended to have a very slight negative effect. These types of couples had a worse outcome than they achieved individually; with eight pairs of operators the results were the very opposite of what was intended. Couples of the opposite sex, all of whom knew each other, had a powerful complementary effect, producing more than three and a half times the effect of individuals. However, 'bonded' pairs, those couples in a relationship, had the most profound effect, which was nearly six times as strong as that of single operators.3,

If these effects depended upon some sort of resonance between the two participating consciousnesses, it would make sense that stronger effects would occur among those people sharing identities, such as siblings, twins or couples in a relationship. Being close may create coherence. As two waves in phase amplified a signal, it may be that a bonded couple has an especially powerful resonance, which would enhance their joint effect on the machine.

Wow! This is really very interesting and sheds light on many things! (pun intended)
Everything is interconnected and related in nature, osis.

Seems like they are on to something regarding consciousness influencing
the outcomes of scientific experiments. Reminds me of the Young's double-slit
experiment and particle/wave duality theory.

_http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave-particle_duality

I have a hard time getting my mind wrapped around this field/biological
processes and how it might also be connected to the soul (spirit, sub-consciousness)
as well as outside influences!

Wow!

Thanks for posting this important findings. There were indeed some "aha" moments when reading the quotes.

I have some feedbacks.

By the time that Popp had his light machine, he was more or less on his own with regard to a radiation theory of DNA. Nevertheless, he doggedly pressed on with his experiments, learning more about the properties of this mysterious light. The more he tested, the more he discovered that all living things — from the most basic of plants or animals, to human beings in all their sophisticated complexity — emitted a permanent current of photons, from only a few to hundreds. The number of photons emitted seemed to be linked to an organism's position on the evolutionary scale: the more complex the organism, the fewer photons being emitted.
...
The healthiest body would have the lowest light and be closest to zero state, the most desirable state — the closest living things could get to nothingness.
The above quote reminds me of Gurdjieff's "Ray of Creation," where the closer to the Absolute you are, the fewer laws you are subject to. It is quite interesting to see how fewer photons being emitted as related to being subjected to certain number of "laws," osit.

Benveniste suspected that the woman must be emitting some form of waves that were blocking the signals. Through his work he developed a means of testing for these, and he soon discovered that she was emitting electromagnetic fields which were interfering with the communication signalling of his experiment. Like Popp's carcinogenic substances, she was a frequency scrambler.
This one seems to be related to the OPs or individuals being activited to hinder the souled being's quest for knowledge (or to increase the communication signals between the truth seekers). Or, would the woman be on the lower level or having more 'lights,' which were not in union or resonance with other's frequency, scramble or cancel the other out?

If these effects depended upon some sort of resonance between the two participating consciousnesses, it would make sense that stronger effects would occur among those people sharing identities, such as siblings, twins or couples in a relationship. Being close may create coherence. As two waves in phase amplified a signal, it may be that a bonded couple has an especially powerful resonance, which would enhance their joint effect on the machine.
Certainly, this one seems related to the importance of networking or a colinear group. Almost similar to "Polar Opposites" as termed by Mouravieff, an increased frequency between individuals towards to the same aim produces positive effects.

I may be wrong with my inital feedback in this short post of mine here, but I'm working on re-reading them and will obtain the book to gain a better understanding. I looked forward to others' input here.

for what it is worth

One thing that stuck out for me was the comment of wave versus particle existence of consciousness. Example, we're all 'particles' of conscience when we're awake, those dreams seem to be a much more wave-like experience. Another thought - 3D is particulate in nature and 4D is more wave-like, or perhaps allowing a wave-like existence thus a 4D'ers ability to move through space and time in ways we cannot.

Another bit, information spreads through cells in a body the same way that it does through people. One cell makes a tiny alteration that is transmitted via the intra and extracellular water. For humans, we make "alterations" (whether it be an experiment, book, or blog) and the effect is felt through various mediums, the easiest being the internet.

There's also the last bit, which shows how group dynamics can and will have gestalt (more then the sum) effect when their efforts are colinear.

Also I wouldn't jump to the OP bit when it comes to individuals who inhibited the experiment. For all we know, it could be Souled individuals who inhibited it. Or maybe she and the man who inhibited it simply had a particular FRV due to their genetics.... it could be anything.

Yes, there is that thought that comes to mind when you consider what was said earlier that the greater the coherence, the less light emitted. That could be a can of worms, but it does suggest that some sort of "Free Will" detector could be built, so to say. (That's long been Ark's dream!)

Another thing to think about in respect of this is the idea that it is very possible that homeopathic remedies and/or "special water" that is being hawked on the net by a lot of new age types, could be completely ineffective due to having been handled by one of these type of individuals.

The whole thing just opens up all sorts of things to think about.

Anybody else got any thoughts?

It certainly jives with the C's material - quite fascinating, especially the idea that newly forming cells follow the 'hidden blueprint' of the body - seems to explain why stem cells can be put into any part of the body and become the cells that constitute that 'part'.

So much of it is relevant that I'm finding it difficult to comment on just a few things, but this:

As expected, the histamine and acetylcholine produced increased blood flow in the coronary arteries, while the mepyramine and atropine inhibited it. The only unusual aspect of the experiment was that the agents of change weren't actually pharmacological chemicals but low-frequency waves of the electromagnetic signals of the cells recorded using a purpose-designed transducer and a computer equipped with a sound card.
Sure does open up a wide door to the sorts of manipulations on a population with low frequency waves that we've been discussing - it's all there in plain site. osit

Wow, the number of resonances with the 'C's material was so much that I had to start making notes....

This discussion goes a long way to providing a function for the so-called "junk DNA". I remember the very first time I encountered that phrase, I laughed out loud. The very idea that 90% of our DNA serves no purpose, is, well, laughable. Much of our DNA is dedicated to the manufacture of proteins, so it is long sequences of blueprints for the biological engines in our cells. However, as I read the above, the rest of the "junk" DNA helps to determine who and what we are. I recall that the Cs said that the soul has to find a compatible DNA footprint, and they did not explain what this meant. Reading the above, this means that the frequency resonances incorporated in the DNA structures and how these frequencies manifest themselves in a three dimensional world (think of the result being the superposition of all of those frequencies and just like you can take a multi-dimensional result and take the Fourier transform to find its frequency components, the multi-dimensional result is a summation of these frequencies. So the resonances of the DNA form some kind of physicality, perhaps one we are not even truly aware of, and the soul puts it on, like a suit.

Also, how does it happen that wounds heal? If you have a superficial cut, it heals over and disappears. If you have a massive wound, slowly over time, things tend to return to normal form. Severe injury will leave permanent disfigurement, but perhaps this is only because the time it takes to completely heal is longer than the organism's lifetime. My point is where is the information stored about how a wound is supposed to return to the original form, once that form has been artificially distorted? Well, duh. In the DNA. This works not only during embryonic development, but throughout the organism's existence.

Also, many "psychically advanced" individuals report on the ability to see auras. Perhaps they are literally seeing this internal light... It has been demonstrated that the human eye can in fact perceive a single photon.

The Cs talked about changes coming about by "burning off " DNA "factors" without explaining this too well. This might be explained by the whole electromagnetic stimulation discussed above. If you have a sufficient understanding of how it all works, it might very well be possible to create something like a MRI field where the frequencies of radiation and the superposition of the fields create resonances that have causal properties. You are constantly bombarded with "full spectrum" radiation, but it is incoherent noise. Suppose instead you were bombarded with specific exact frequencies according to specific spatial patterns. The results might be surprising.

Also, what do the HAARP folks know about the interaction of electromagnetic fields and consciousness that the rest of the scientific community does not know? I mean the CIA and defense intelligence agencies supposedly invested in "remote viewing" so they apparently do not have some of the same mental barriers that other "mainstream" scientific groups have. If you truly open your mind to virtually any possibility, who knows what remains to be discovered.

Being a complete hopeless case in Science, I can just make an interrogating comment regarding what you both said -- and please correct me if I misunderstood (which is very possible given my zero state in Science) : reading this, it just strikes me as the opposite of what New Age/standard spiritual mottoes proclaim ( that is, the more evolved is an individual, the more light he emits or "radiates"). So according to the evidence, it's rather the opposite ?! The more evolved/complex, the less light does a being actually emit/"radiate" ?
Can we relate this emission of light/photons to auras, or is it an altogether different thing ?
Thanks.

I think it may be different, but I am not quite sure. It may be a different kind of light that is being emitted by the photons than a light being seen as an aura. As I recalled from the C's that awareness solidifies knowledge which increases the aura light:

Session 960120
Q: (AM) Take a deep breath and hold... [aura photo of L is taken] (L) [looking at aura photo of self] This is very strange, guys. How come I am not in this
picture and F shows up in his? Why have I physically disappeared?
A: Learning builds spiritual growth, and awareness "solidifies" knowledge.
Q: (L) Okay, guys, smile for the camera! [Aura photo of board is taken with L's and F's fingers on planchette.] (L) Okay, but that does not explain why I disappeared.
A: Because the energy field enclosure was unifying you with the conduit, as is usual during channeling sessions between 3rd and 6th density level
communications.
So which part of the cell that contains knowledge, then that comes a new light? I may be off, but it's an interesting thought.

Another thing just comes to mind: photons = programs? Fewer photons means fewer programs? Just some thoughts to throw in...

I strongly agree with Laura when she said: "The whole thing just opens up all sorts of things to think about." With this new opportunity/finding, there are many possibilities.

The only unusual aspect of the experiment was that the agents of change weren't actually pharmacological chemicals but low-frequency waves of the electromagnetic signals of the cells recorded using a purpose-designed transducer and a computer equipped with a sound card. It was these signals, which take the form of electromagnetic radiation of less than 20 kilohertz, which were applied to the guinea pig heart, and were responsible for speeding it up, just as the chemicals themselves would.
Besides what Anne has already mentioned, this also makes me curious if the human voice or music may have some influence on our body? Audible sounds are not electromagnetic, but physical vibrations, albeit they may be created by loudspeakers which are electromagnetic devices, but these frequencies are also below 20kHz. What about "listening" to music or voices without those physical vibrations but to be only exposed to them by an electromagnetic field? Would this influence us also, as hearing music directly from an ipod or tv? Aren't we already bombed with radio, tv, phone and wifi waves?

Such an interesting piece! Can of worms indeed.

Firstly, If Fulcanelli was Julles Violle, then I find it interesting that one of his major contributions to physics was THE violle. A constant measurement UNIT OF LIGHT. The frequency of a violle is 20.17 cd (candelas). Did he leave us a clue with this particular frequency? Not surprising he was so interested in light if it is contained in DNA!

As the piece started talking about water being "coded" with the frequency of different molecules (sorry if my terminologies are iffy) I started thinking about what Laura wrote in secret history regarding stones and running water having a magnetic field which may act similarly to that of a cassette tape/video which might account for apparitions, ghosts etc. Sure enough, as I read on...
These single wavelengths of water molecules appear to become 'informed' in the presence of other molecules — that is, they tend to polarize around any charged molecule — storing and carrying its frequency so that it may be read at a distance. This would mean that water is like a tape recorder, imprinting and carrying information whether the original molecule is still there or not.
Also then we have the subject of heavy water in the work, and sound waves affecting the water we are mostly made of.

Implications of waters involvement with Ligands, receptors. Explaining how the "signature frequency" of a cell can resonate with another area of the body instantly (again, sorry for poor terminology)

"Look for the vibratory frequency of light" obviously has "BODILY" implications of some sort.

What he discovered was that benzo[a]pyrene had a crazy optical property. It absorbed the light but then re-emitted it at a completely different frequency, like some CIA operative intercepting a communication signal from the enemy and jumbling it up. This was a chemical which doubled as a biological frequency scrambler. Popp then performed the same test on benzo[e]pyrene, another polycyclic hydrocarbon, which is virtually identical in every way to benzo[a]pyrene

(snip)


There was another odd property of these compounds. Each of the carcinogens reacted only to the light at a specific wavelength — 380 nanometres.

Q: (A) Can I have a hint what is lacking? A different ordering of numbers would be better?
A: Most likely. You will just "stumble" on the method.
Q: (A) Another question related to prime numbers: you said in prime numbers you will find resonance and I
was kind of surprised about that...
A: There is your clue.
Q: (A) It was supposed to be related to sound. But I have a problem with sound because sound frequency
depends on the medium in which sound propagates. The medium can be air, can be stone, can be anything;
the frequency spectrum will depend on the medium. Now we are talking about pyramids and sound related
to pyramids. Was this...
A: Yes...Pyramid, Pyrenees, Pyr...
Q: (V) There must be something about the Pyr. How does Pyr relate to prime numbers? (A) Where is
pyramid, where are they coming from, where's the name coming from, what's this? Pyro, fire, no? (L)
Yeah, fire.
A: Frequency of light...
Q: (A) Sonoluminescence. But again there is this term frequency. I have areal problem with you guys using
the term frequency because frequency is number of oscillations per unit of time. But what is the unit of
time? A second, a minute, an hour, a year?
A: Can we say "nano?"
Q: (A) It doesn't make sense because what's nano? It doesn't explain in which unit frequency is supposed to
be measured. There is no such thing as frequency if we don't say which unit of time. So nano suggests it
should be some nano measure of frequency, or natural frequency. But I don't know any particular frequency
that, so to say, can serve as a unit of time.

A second read through seemed apropos, so here's what stood out:
It is very well known from biological laboratory experiments that if you can blast a cell with UV light so that 99 per cent of the cell, including its DNA, is destroyed, you can almost entirely repair the damage in a single day just by illuminating the cell with the same wavelength of a very weak intensity.
Is there a source cited for this? Also, interesting that we see the same pattern in homeopathy.

In quantum physics, quantum coherence means that subatomic particles are able to cooperate. These subatomic waves or particles not only know about each other, but also are highly interlinked by bands of common electromagnetic fields, so that they can communicate together. They are like a multitude of tuning forks that all begin resonating together. As the waves get into phase or synch, they begin acting like one giant wave and one giant subatomic particle. It becomes difficult to tell them apart. Many of the weird quantum effects seen in a single wave apply to the whole. Something done to one of them will affect the others.

Coherence establishes communication. It's like a subatomic telephone network. 'The better the coherence, the finer the telephone network and the more refined wave patterns have a telephone. The end result is also a bit like a large orchestra. All the photons are playing together but as individual instruments that are able to carry on playing individual parts. Nevertheless, when you are listening, it's difficult to pick out any one instrument.
This part seems very in line with what we're trying to do, by working on ourselves we're attempting to tune ourselves to the frequency of truth, a la STO.

A particularly gifted student of his talked him into trying an experiment. It is known that when you apply a chemical called ethidium bromide to samples of DNA, the chemical squeezes itself into the middle of the base pairs of the double helix and causes it to unwind. The student suggested that, after applying the chemical, he and Popp try measuring the light coming off the sample. Popp discovered that the more he increased the concentration of the chemical, the more the DNA unwound, but also the stronger the intensity of light. The less he put in, the lower the light emission., He also found that DNA was capable of sending out a large range of frequencies and that some frequencies seemed linked to certain functions. If DNA were storing this light, it would naturally emit more light once it was unwound.
I've actually done this before. We use ethidium bromide to label DNA. It's a nasty carcinogen, so you have to be very careful with it. The idea is that you label DNA with it, and then you chop up the DNA and run it out on a gel in a process called electrophoresis. You basically apply a small current to your gel and the DNA moves through the gel's matrix. In order to see your DNA on the gel, you hit it with UV light and it glows. Now, we've always been told that it glows because the EtBr is UV Reactive, from the above it seems equally possible that the UV light is reacting to the opened DNA.

An experiment just came to mind: record EtBr's signature with the equipment they've already discussed, and play it back at DNA. If the DNA glows, then you can certify the cause as it being opened and not a function of the EtBr molecules jammed inside it.

In a rush of fevered inspiration while at an ashram in India, Sheldrake worked out his hypothesis of formative causation, which states that the forms of self-organizing living things — everything from molecules and organisms to societies and even entire galaxies — are shaped by morphic fields. These fields have a morphic resonance — a cumulative memory — of similar systems through cultures and time, so that species of animals and plants `remember' not only how to look but also how to act. Rupert Sheldrake uses the term `morphic fields' and an entire vocabulary of his own making to describe the self-organizing properties of biological systems, from molecules to bodies to societies. 'Morphic resonance', is, in his view, 'the influence of like upon like through space and time'. He believes these fields (and he thinks there are many of them) are different from electromagnetic fields because they reverberate across generations with an inherent memory of the correct shape and form.- The more we learn, the easier it is for others to follow in our footsteps.
This reminded me of thoughtforms, or the names of god - could they be the same as these morphic fields?

In his own studies, Fröhlich had shown that once energy reaches a certain threshold, molecules begin to vibrate in unison, until they reach a high level of coherence. The moment molecules reach this state of coherence, they take on certain qualities of quantum mechanics, including nonlocality. They get to the point where they can operate in tandem.
This also seems to be a goal of the work, and how debugged units would function a la STO.

Popp and his new colleagues went on to study the light emissions of several organisms of the same species, first with an experiment with a type of water flea called Daphnia. What they found was nothing short of astonishing. Tests with a photomultiplier showed that the water fleas were sucking up the light emitted from each other. Popp tried the same experiment on small fish and found that they were doing the same. According to his photomultiplier, sunflowers were like a biological vacuum cleaner, moving in the direction of the most solar photons in order to vacuum them up. Even bacteria would swallow photons from the medium they had been placed in.

It began to dawn on Popp that these emissions had a purpose outside the body. Wave resonance wasn't simply being used to communicate inside the body, but between living things. Two healthy beings were engaged in 'photon sucking', as he called it, by exchanging photons. Popp realized that this exchange might unlock the secret of some of the animal kingdom's most persistent conundrums: how schools of fish or flocks of birds create perfect and instantaneous coordination. Many experiments on the homing ability of animals demonstrate that it has nothing to do with following habitual trails or scents or even the electromagnetic fields of the earth, but some silent communication, acting like an invisible rubber band, even when animals are separated by miles from humans.
Likely we humans do the same thing, emit and suck up eachother's light. Question - what form does that light take? Communication? Research? Knowledge? Money? Some intangible energy exchanged beyond the range of the senses? Or perhaps material things, knowledge, are mere representations or symbols of the light we exchange. Truly fascinating research.

The memory of water studies had prompted Benveniste to examine the manner in which molecules communicate within a living cell. In all aspects of life, molecules must speak to each other. If you are excited, your adrenals pump out more adrenaline, which must tell specific receptors to get your heart to heat faster. The usual theory, called the Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR), is that two molecules that match each other structurally exchange specific (chemical) information, which occurs when they bump into each other. It's rather like a key finding its own keyhole (which is why this theory is often also called the key—keyhole, or lock-and-key interaction model). Biologists still adhere to the mechanistic notions of Descartes that there can only he reaction through contact, some sort of impulsive force. Although they accept gravity, they reject any other notions of action at a distance.

If these occurrences are due to chance, there's very little statistical hope of their happening, considering the universe of the cell. In the average cell, which contains one molecule of protein for every ten thousand molecules of water, molecules jostle around the cell like a handful of tennis balls floating about in a swimming pool. The central problem with the current theory is that it is too dependent upon chance and also requires a good deal of time. It can't begin to account for the speed of biological processes, like anger, joy, sadness or fear. But if instead each molecule has its own signature frequency, its receptor or molecule with the matching spectrum of features would tune into this frequency, much as your radio tunes into a specific station, even over vast distances, or one tuning fork causes another tuning fork to oscillate at the same frequency. They get in resonance — the vibration of one body is reinforced by the vibration of another body at or near its frequency. As these two molecules resonate on the same wavelength, they would then begin to resonate with the next molecules in the biochemical reaction, thus creating, in Benveniste's words, a 'cascade' of electromagnetic impulses travelling at the speed of light. This, rather than accidental collision, would better explain how you initiate a virtually instantaneous chain reaction in biochemistry. It also is a logical extension of the work of Fritz Popp. If photons in the body excite molecules along the entire spectrum of electromagnetic frequencies, it is logical that they would have their own signature frequency.
Again, does the same principle apply to humans? Can we recognize the 'frequency' of truth and by consistent steps, align to it, perpetuating the 'wave' as it were? Granted it occurs much slower then it does within the body, but we're talking about differences in scale here, much along the same lines as G discussed his various 'Worlds'.

and thas all i got.

Yes, now unexplainable heart attacks and strokes suddenly make a lot of sense. I wonder if the same things discussed, like a certain frequency in our bodies, will makes us then immune to such high tech manipulations.

Its way too late and I'm falling asleep ;). Nevertheless I wanted to add that it was an amazing reading, I thought about Gurdjieff's concepts of "food, air, impressions" and the "finer" elements as opposed to "coarse" elements related with the Work. Also the concepts of frequency resonance vibration and about the following from the Cs:

A: Frequency envelopes are realms, however they are
"in concert," which implies a degree of scripting at
some level. Some members if the orchestra do not
play well. Some do not play in tune. Some are out of
synch. Others expect the one next to them to play
their part.

It was also pretty amazing to read about the molecular communication in the body, I was brainwashed into the hormone and receptor way that something "non-linear" in biology was very difficult to imagine. Now it makes sense :)
