BIOPHYSICS FOR THE HOLISTICALLY-MINDED
Because we are not equipped, as a species, with the required tools to handle the microscopic or Planck levels of matter organization, we use metaphysical tools like symbolic (mathematics) or sentential logic to make sense (deductions) of our observations so we can control the environment for our biological, psychological and sociological existential benefit. Metaphysical should be grammatically understood as reasoned speculations as to what may be the ‘veritas in se’ about nature
AS ABOVE; SO BELOW
Explorations at the Nexus of Human Spirit and
Future Science in the Micro- and Macrocosm
In physics, it is hard to reconcile the difference between the very big and the very small. The laws we have discovered that govern the human-scale and the cosmos appear quite different from the vagaries of the quantum level. Yet the quantum world is the subtle essence of the cosmos, and does not differ in any way from it. So at some level, the two are the same: "As Above; So Below."
Likewise, at the human scale often it is difficult to reconcile the great and small, the personal and the transpersonal, the particular or instinctual and the universal. The two meet in the human spirit. The characteristics of the cosmos are reflected in our inner lives. Physically we share the exact same essence as the Universe. There is a shift in perception toward holistic visions; newer models in science eliminated a basic conflict between science and religious belief.
Science used to claim we lived essentially as mechanical robots in a clockwork universe; religion maintained that man is ruled by more than matter alone. We are clearly not mechanical systems. In the spiritual view, mind-like or spirit-like factors make a difference in human behavior. New physics shows the dynamic entanglement of our conscious thoughts with the quantum representation of the physical world.
There is a hierarchy of observational levels of self, others, and world: subquantal, quantal, photonic, atomic, EM, chemical, cellular, organismic, consciousness, community, world, solar system, galaxy, universe, even multiverse. Everything, including ourselves, is deeply connected in one holy movement, reflected in the holographic concept of reality.
The dynamics of the very large and very small meet in the relationship of our bodies with the environment; local space-time. Spatial and temporal interconnections are revealed as fields within fields. The psychophysical expressions of consciousness are revealed in their holistic complexity, in our electromagnetic relationships at the planetary, temporal and universal level.
The nature of the very great and very small meet in the mind-body connection, where spirit meets matter. They are indissolubly welded in our core of light, passion, and voluptuousness; the eros of our soul and spirit. Together they form the immanent essence that has never been and can never be separated.
On the grand scale, they meet when we confront both the spiritual and scientific nature of the Cosmos, with its mind-bending Mysteries. We see them in cosmic riddles and quantum metaphysics. As humans we stand in awe before the vastness of the creation and call it divine. We sense that which undergirds and organizes the nature of human space-time experience as omnipresence.
These concepts and philosophical approach are the basis of the worldview presented here. Taken together they address some of the main issues in both the scientific and spiritual domains. State of the art science is contrasted and compared with ancient spiritual wisdom about living and being. Ancient wisdom is contemporized, and science becomes illuminative as in the days it was called natural philosophy.
Hopefully with a fresh insightful journey through these areas each reader will emerge with an expanded perspective of what it means to plumb both the mysteries of the universe and the mysteries of the self. For how can we know our selves if we don't have a contemporary grasp of the way the world works? Conversely, how can we know the Cosmos if we have failed to look within and understand and directly experience our own fundamental and spiritual nature?
Our place in the cosmos depends on the delicate interplay between the very big and the very small. Understanding that helps us comprehend how infinite pure potential becomes actualized as human consciousness, how through a single tangible wavefunction mind becomes matter. Waves of possibility are transduced into classical and macrocosmic forms.
Pardon us if we fail to come to any clear conclusions since the scientific models, cosmos, and ourselves are still works in process. It is for each of us to find a name for the power behind that process.
Electrons are either in phase and able to see and interact with each other, or out of phase and therefore effectively invisible and unable to exert force on one another. Unsynchronized particles appear as “quantum noise.” Other nearby parallel dimensions normally only interact with ours through quantum noise. However, consciousness appears to interact across these parallel dimensions.
Coherence between parallel realities can be thought of as hyperdimensional structure which crosses dimensions. It is nonphysical yet has physical manifestations. Higher dimensional structures can be designed which, by their shape and topology, are stable. Such forms may be a possible model for consciousness and the soul. The hypercube is one such hyperdimensional structure that has a long mystical tradition (Merkabah; Cube of Space, Star Tetrahedron).
The key is to understand what makes up these higher dimensional geometrical structures. The answer is phase variation in spacetime. Normal space is “in phase” from point to point at this deep level, but it experiences small departures from the common resonant phase of all particles. These departures can become systematic. When mapped in spacetime they can form three-dimensional and higher dimensional geometric structures. These “phase structures” can cross several parallel universes, and become the physical basis for “subtle energy” and paranormal phenomena.
Electromagnetic waves are a collection of synchronized photons of different frequency and amplitude. Radiation is constantly pouring in and flowing out, balancing on average. The electron goes forward and backward in a seemingly random pattern in space and time, in order to balance all the radiation coming in and flowing out.
This balanced radiation pattern is analogous to the interference pattern of a hologram. A 3-D pattern of energy created by regions of interference is what we see as an image. There is creative and destructive interference. An electron and every particle is a “hologram,” produced as the result of the actions of the electron to preserve the balance of energy (Miller et al, 1973).
To be more than ethereal like a technologically produced hologram, it must have mass created by including the photons traveling backwards in time from the future. This is a 4-Dimensional hologram, which is an integral aspect of every particle and real physical object.
If we want to manipulate the particle, electron or whatever, all we need to do is manipulate its 4-D hologram. The brain is a holographic structure which makes an ideal antenna for receiving holographic wave patterns. The brain processes information holographically. This supports the idea that the brain may be a sender and receiver of holographic signals.
Bose particles are photons which like to be in the same state; they become entangled or entrained, sharing a frequency. The body creates coherent light. In the cell structure of the body there are membranes which act as conductors of microwave, infrared and visible light. These structures store coherent photons [biophotons] which play a fundamental role in life processes.
Our bodies use light and coherent vibrations to carry out many life processes. The stored coherent photons can be shaped and controlled to affect external photons and external vibrational patterns. The Bose principle extends the idea of entrainment to our own hyperdimensional being. Because of Bose statistics, these patterns or structures of energy simulate other “mirror” structures in the distant matter.
Brainwaves show that the brain becomes more synchronized and coherent in mediation. Based on our 4-D holographic model, the mind has enormous power to affect reality. 4-D type holographic signals are primary communications, “in-formation”.
The DNA in our cells can naturally produce coherent waves, which contain both forward-time traveling waves and matching backward-time traveling waves in phase conjugation. They generate coupled photons which radiate out along the axis of the double helix in both directions [biophoton emission].
What is DNA; where did it come from; how does it function to create life, to create us?
We have some of the biochemical answers, but we can look deeper into biophysics for our models. We propose that DNA functions in a way that correlates with holographic projection.
DNA projects a blueprint for the organism that is translated from the electrodynamic to the molecular level. Further, research strongly suggests DNA functions as a biocomputer. This DNA-wave biocomputer reads and writes genetic code and forms holographic pre-images of biostructures. We are more fundamentally electromagnetic, rather than chemical beings.
Each cell is a tiny radio transmitter capable of sending phase conjugate waves into the past and into the future. The real power of DNA and the use of phase-conjugate waves is just a matching pattern of advanced and retarded waves transmitted in phase by billions of cells. The strength of the pattern increases as the square of the number of cells acting in unison. A millon cells transmitting a desired visualization in unison will have a thousand billion times more power than a single cell.
A million DNA cells broadcasting at random just produces noise. All the signals cancel out. But a million DNA cells broadcasting coherently and in unison generates a paranormal power, such as that exhibited by adepts with mindbody control.
DNA molecules of each cell can be brought into coherence by emitted light and sound (Gariaev). This enables the brain, when quiet and coherent, to combine together the signals of many DNA molecules so the desired image or visualization can be brought into being. At the core of this model is synchronous interaction of particles across great distances and time, which may explain many paranormal effects as changes in quantum noise. This model offers a way to understand consciousness, which is much more than the physical body.
Hypothesis: human microvibrations are transduced from, analogous to and/or resonantly entrained to micropulsations in the common plasma medium. Bioelectronic processes may be treated as a plasma state within the solid state of organic compounds. Biophysicist Popp showed that cellular condition is related to electromagnetic emissions. Significantly, low-frequency biological rhythms display correlations with the geophysical environment.
Rohracher (1950s) of Vienna described the phenomenon of microvibrations, oscillations in the frequency range of 7 to 13 Hz that can be observed on the surface of the body during complete muscle relaxation. Microvibrations are cardioballistic or heart-driven phenomena likely related to the cranial pump and electrical activity of the hippocampus at 7.8 Hz. Low frequency oscillations in the Earth’s magnetosphere are called magnetic micropulsation (ULF waves). 7.83 Hz is Schumann’s Resonance (SR); Earth’s electromagnetic heartbeat is 10 Hz. Alpha brainwaves are 7 - 12 Hz. Healers and meditators exhibit nearly identical EEG signatures during their healing moments: a 7.8-8 Hz brainwave activity, which lasts from one to several seconds and is phase and frequency-synchronized with the earth's geoelectric micropulsations.
"Some researchers have measured electromagnetic (EM) signals emanating from the hands of healers which are within the same frequency range as human brain waves. There are some indications that a correlation exists between atmospheric oscillations, brain waves, and biological EM emissions." ~ Dr. Leanne Roffey Line
The heart is our own pulsing center as the sun is that of the solar system. In THE HEART'S CODE, Paul Pearsall, PhD (1998) points out that simple physics tells us that energy and information leave the body and go out into space. It reaches our loved ones and our pets and plants, it extends to the sky, and, yes, logically, the electromagnetic field expands into the vacuum of space at the speed of light, 186,000 miles per second. Though the signal strength will obviously be very tiny, each second after our heart beats our individual heart’s code has expanded and travelled 186,000 miles into space, through space forever(p. xi-xii). In this sense, perhaps we are immortal. However, waves from space also impinge upon us.
As Above, So Below
EM waves are our primary means of knowing and viewing the universe. We are integral products of our environment, an embedded lattice of pulsating, vibrating energy. What happens in the solar system, our electromagnetic environment, and at our cellular level are all intimately related. The classic Hermetic axiom, As Above; So below reiterates the nonlinear fractal unfoldment of self-similar organization at different scales of magnitude, from cosmic to subatomic.
This metaphysical notion suggests analogies or intuitive correlations of macroscopic, meso-, and microscopic processes or dynamics. With that in mind, we can examine the micropulsations of the earth and its atmosphere as well as our own neuromusculature, including the reciprocal relationship of the brain and heart muscle.
Resonance occurs when the natural vibrational frequency of a body is amplified by vibrations (essentially shock waves) at the same frequency from another body. The earth and our human organism are in such a resonate relationship. Standing waves that resonate at SR frequencies can form in the heart and drive other resonate systems in the body.
The bifurcation of the aorta forms a resonate cavity oscillator where pressure pulses coincide in phase (Bentov). Echo and pulse leave the heart together and continue in synchrony. Amplitude increases to 3 times normal as the body moves up and down 7 times a second. When it approaches 7 Hz, a progressively amplified standing wave form is created, resonating as large oscillations that entrain body circuits. This drives the pulsation of our piezoelectric brain against the skull creating standing waves in the ventricles.
Earth's magnetosphere is a spherical magnet. Like the brain, the plasma of Earth's magnetosphere can be viewed as a stiff jelly that conveys subtle vibrations to all bodies within it. Our biofield couples to the isoelectric field of the planet. 7.83 range is the SR frequency compared with the micromotion of the body at 6.8 to 13 Hz. EM fields are the connecting links between the world of resonant patterns and form, a feedback pulse of information. SR actually exerts a slight pressure on the surface of the planet and its inhabitants.
Low frequency oscillations in the Earth's magnetosphere are called magnetic micropulsation (ULF waves). There is a subtle yet pulsating disturbing force. This field and Earth's magnetic plasma are fused. Two pulses appearing to propagate away from their origin are called Alven waves. Alven waves are only one wave mode that can propagate in a plasma. In magnetized plasma the two waves are coupled to the sound wave by the frozen in field. These waves are fast, intermediate, or slow with the slowest is closest to being a pure sound wave.
Many of the waves on Earth's surface originate beyond the magnetosphere. Solar wind, space weather, pressure waves, foreshock, bow shock and magnetopause create ULF waves that pass through the magnetopause and propagate through the magnetosphere. Internally they interact with wave guides, cavities and field lines creating observable pulsations. Close to the ion foreshock ions in the field align and produce small amplitude 1 Hz waves, as recorded by Lonetree (2004) at .9 Hz and 1.82 Hz. 1.855 Hz also has been cited by scalar physics researcher Hodowanec (1999) as the prime cosmic resonant frequency, also noted by Schumann.
The magnetosphere itself functions as a resonant cavity and wave guide for waves that propagate through the system. These cavities resonate at discrete frequencies many of which have biological effects. The relation of magnetospheric micropulsations (Alven waves and SR) appears correlated with diurnal, circadian and other psychophysical rhythms in the human organism, in particular microvibrations.
This leads to the hypothesis: human microvibrations are transduced from, analogous to and resonantly linked or entrained to micropulsations. Alven waves oscillate at the low end of the Delta (0.5 Hz - 4 Hz) brain wave frequency spectrum (deep dreamless sleep). In Delta the body is at rest and more susceptible to the subtle rhythm of the heart as a driver of psychophysical processes. It is well known that the brain can be driven by acoustic signals, sound and light, through the frequency-following response (Monroe). Even our DNA responds directly to biological coherent light and sound (Gariaev, 1993; Miller, Miller, Webb, 2002).
A strong 0.1 Hz signal traveling from the heart to the brain via the baroreceptor link might frequency-pull the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the ANS into this frequency range and also frequency-pull the respiratory system into the same range. It is not clear where this 0.1 Hz baroreceptor signal originates but this may be the source that pumps the initiating 0.1 Hz signal into the baroreceptor channel heading for the brainstem.
The heart drives the cranial pump, creating microvibrations. Biotherapist, Leanne Roffey says, "As to where they [microvibrations] originate, I'm pretty sure that would have to be in the "cranial pump" in our craniosacral systems. That is a hydraulic pump that can be thought of as magnetohydrodynamic. Connective tissue is very much piezoelectric, so signal is produced. Everything drives off the Cranial rhythm and there are quite a few factors, respiration included, hormones, blood flow, even perfusion, that go towards making up that sum."
In between the cranial parts are situated the so-called cranial sutures. The cranial sutures are composed of an elastic substance connecting the various cranial parts. The cranial parts are continuously opening and closing, functioning as a pump system. This pump system takes care of the circulation of brain fluid that is located underneath the skull. The pressure caused by the pumping movement has an overall effect, reaching the tail-bone (the sacral part), and all the bones in the body. Thus, it is implicated in microvibration.
Rohracher in Vienna described the phenomenon of microvibrations in the 1950s. Microvibrations consist of oscillations in the frequency range of 7 to 13 Hz, which can be observed on the surface of the body during complete muscle relaxation. Not surprisingly, when astronauts began going into space, the absence of Earth rhythms sent their bodies out of kilter. Therefore, all missions include a generator that simulates SR frequencies for health.
Physiological coherence encompasses entrainment, resonance, and synchronization, which are all distinct but related physiological phenomena associated with more ordered and harmonious interactions among the body's systems.
From an energy medicine perspective, the heart is the most powerful electromagnetic organ serving important regulatory functions. An ongoing dialogue takes place between heart and brain. The heart’s EM field extends 12 to15 feet beyond the body, 50 times more powerful than the brain’s EEG signals.
The heart is our most powerful organ.
The heart responds directly to the environment.
The heart is the conductor of the energy of the body’s cells.
The heart is a dynamic system.
The heart is the body’s primary organizing force.
The heart resonates with information-containing energy.
The heart is the body system’s core.
The heart speaks and sends information.
All hearts exchange information with all other hearts and brains. (Pearsall)
Every cell in the body is linked by electromagnetic contact with the toroidal-shaped magnetic field of the heart, mirroring the relationship of Earth with its organisms. Heart rate mediates stress response and balance of the relaxation response. The connective tissue matrix, with its semiconducting and liquid crystal holographic structure, resonates with these field changes.
Cells are fractals embedded in a holographic energetic matrix that extends beyond the skin boundary. The body is an energetic event, a self-organizing electromagnetically unified matrix. The living matrix continuum or tissue tensegrity matrix reaches inside each and every cell. The matrix systematically interconnects parts of the body, even more so than the nervous system.
Contrary to prevailing neuron doctrine, the glial substrate and other perineural structures of the central nervous system could directly control brain functions. The substrate is ultra sensitive to extremely low levels of electric currents and magnetic fields, which may directly control brain functions. The neuronal brain is not only supported by, but modulated by, the glial brain. (Becker)
Electromagnetism has effects on the "integration of brain function" in consciousness. Becker hypothesizes that DC and low-frequency extraneuronal electric currents generated in, or transmitted by, the glial components of the brain and may be the basis of perceptual awareness.”
Fear and Trembling
Frohlich (1988) found that our bodies' primordial high-speed networks vibrate continuously at light frequencies, because of huge electrical potentials and the high degree of molecular order or crystallinity in our tissues. This living matrix is a mechanical, vibrational, energetic, photonic, and informational network. Communication breakdown can lead to systems failures in microcircuitry and regulative processes.
A simple model can demonstrate that microvibrations are due to mechanical resonance. The oscillations are apparently elicited by the heartbeat. Therefore it appears that microvibrations are cardioballistic phenomena. This force is transmitted through the bones to soft tissues such as relaxed muscles. Local resonance finally leads to the oscillations.
Resonance is an important mechanism in energy healing, whether with electronic devices or energy therapists. Molecules are resonant antennas, emitting characteristic signals and responding to tiny signals of the appropriate frequencies. Once the appropriate frequency and amplitude are discovered, virtually any physiological process can be influenced with a tiny signal.
Human tremor is concentrated in the 3 - 20 Hz spectrum. Though some researchers report a spread of 6-12 Hz, Comby et al (1992) report the peak frequency of human tremor between 5.85 and 8.80 Hz, which averaged coincides closely with Schumann Resonance (7.83).
Microvibrations correspond closely with adaptation to levels of stimulation and psychological states, particularly states of ergotropic (sympathetic) and trophotrophic (parasympathetic) arousal. Tremor increases with stress and anxiety yet this very mechanism may be the key means of restoring equilibrium. Tremor at rest is the minimal tremor, which remains in the absence of voluntary muscular activity.
Human tremor can be measured with an instrument that connects a piezoelectric (pressure electricity) accelerometer with an electronic circuit to display the results. This signal is analyzed and converted via computer from analog to digital signal. Standardization of a tremor scale and the piezoelectric ceramic has made fabrication of an inexpensive yet satisfactory system possible for home use. Tremor can be measured from a standard measuring position and scale (Comby, 1992) and correlated with SR fluctuations. Appropriate psychophysical drivers and feedback systems can be employed to encourage resonance or entrainment for health or personal growth.
Tremor at rest can be separated from kinetic tremor, which is of much higher amplitude and has the same frequency range. The problem is partially solved by adopting a standard position, which includes "standing still" in the instructions given to the subject. However, some kinetic tremor still remains which is of much higher amplitude than tremor at rest. The best way to ensure that only tremor at rest is measured is to take into consideration only the lowest amplitude reached during the time of measurement.
Physiological tremor increases in states of anxiety or during emotional stress during which there is an increase in release of catecholamines from the adrenal medulla. Psychological stress increases tremor amplitude. Mental stress induces tremor even in healthy subjects. Panic attacks generate tremor from anxiety and psychophysical changes. Tremor can be experimentally produced in human subjects by stress-hormones such as adrenaline, coffee, tea or nicotine.
Comby's results confirm a correlation between the impact on tremor of a relaxation session and the correlation between measured tremor and self-evaluated stress. His research links psychological stress (subjective "stress" or "nervousness") and tremor (objectively quantified).
Plasmas and Bioplasma
Plasma is the fourth state of matter (liquid, gaseous, solid). Living organisms are plasmas. Plasma physics has merged with biology; life is a highly energetic system, not just chemical processes. The optimal adaptation to receive any kind of information and relay it instantaneously to the entire mass of the system is found in plasma.
Plasma is a source of all types of waves, which feed back on the plasma and display mutual correlation. The manifestations of life may be ultimately summarized in terms of plasma and radiation. The secret of life lies in process control through small energy and with minimal noise. Plasma can be controlled only through fields, in particular magnetic fields.
The plasma approach to life points out that life is electric, however, its control takes place magnetically. Plasma is revealed by the emission of an electromagnetic field and is obedient only to this field, even a very weak one. The electronic processes of metabolism may be treated as a plasma state within the solid state of organic compounds.
Significantly, low-frequency biological rhythms display relations with the geophysical environment. The alpha rhythm of the human brain has a frequency of about 10 Hz, which is the same as the frequency of magnetohydrodynamic oscillations of the ionosphere, and of the vibrations of the Earth's crust. Magnetohydrodynamics is based on magnetic transmission over a plasma carrier. Sedlak proposes that magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) can be used to model living bioplasma.
The same frequency is found in the continuous vibrations of the entire organism's skeletal muscles in warm-blooded animals. For a human adult this frequency is 7 - 13 Hz, falling in the range of 8 - 12 Hz in 80% of subjects. The coincidence with the cerebral alpha waves lacks an explanation to date. The rhythm may be transmitted by waves through the organism as biological microvibrations.
Plasma unites in itself the phenomena of electrodynamics, electronics, and hydrodynamics, even in the absence of a fluid medium. One of the manifestations of this situation is magnetohydroydnamic waves (MHD). The wave propagation of magnetic field fluctuations in plasma is analogous to ripples in a fluid medium, accompanied by real transport of magnetic energy.
Therefore, a biological system possesses its own magnetic information, highly sensitive to external field variations and unusually responsive to spin variations in organic structure.
Magnetohydrodynamic waves and weak radiation are typical electromagnetic effects of plasma.
Plasma -- the fundamental background for the processes of life -- is maintained in a constantly agitated state of generation and decay. This magnetohydrodynamic controlled state is correlated with metabolic process, such as anabolism-catabolism and oxidation. It is notably related to physiological currents and weakly luminescent effects (biophotons; bioluminescence).
What is formed is a complex signaling system -- involving electric, magnetic, optical and acoustic effects. This signaling system must operate not only on the level of single macromolecules like DNA, but also on that of groups of molecules, such as cells, tissues, organs and the organism, and above all on the level of the metabolism, as an ensemble of chemical processes.
Magnetic mechanisms control the plasma medium that has features of a conducting liquid. Here hydrodynamics combines with electrodynamics, yielding magnetohydrodynamic vibrations. The common factor of the entire system, namely the averaged-out electronic state of the metabolism, is likely a carrier and receptor of those controls. In more biological terms -- the entire metabolism is the fundamental control within a living system.
Living organisms respond to low-frequency fields. Because the separation of an electro-magnetic field into electric and magnetic vectors is an involved problem, the effects are usually attributed to the electric vector. The sensitivity of living systems to fluctuations of weak magnetic fields of planetary origin indicates that magnetic effects play an even more fundamental role.
A biological system displays not only an electronic "life" of its own, typical of protein semiconductors, but also a specific magnetic "life" endowed with a characteristic rhythm. Plasma repels magnetic field lines (or is itself repelled by them), or "freezes" field lines within itself.
Sedlak (1993) discusses how a living organism is both an information detector and generator and a transformer of electromagnetic energy. Biological systems generate their own magnetic mediums or plasma fields. A plasma responds to magnetic and electric fields, acoustic waves, mechanical action, gravitational fields, and temperature; in addition to depending on chemical composition. Plasma is the ideal carrier system of information within living organisms because it alters its own state with exceptional selectivity and responsiveness.
Bistolfi (1991) characterizes the borderline electronic-chemical reactions found in living tissue as a function of resonance. He offers a biophysical explanation for the acute sensitivity of living systems to electromagnetic influences in bioelectronic terms based on small and large groups of hydrogen bonds within molecular structures such as DNA and other nucleic acids.
Biochemical action and bioelectronic action meet at the quantum-junction. The keys to our physiology are also the keys to consciousness. Phenomena now considered esoteric may someday be explained in terms of bioelectronic interactions of energy and matter. What has been the realm of metaphysical healing may become a precise EM healing science. (Roffey)
Understanding the nature of this correlation may enable us to characterize and further utilize various types of "healing energies". The paradigm for the application of these energies may develop into a basis for a variety of existing complementary medical practices. Integral portions of biological systems have been shown to be semiconducting, ferromagnetic and piezoelectric.
The biosemiconductor, together with the drift of charges, ions, and radicals, may be considered as a form of "bioplasma". Bioplasma may be subject to magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) control. The EM fields emitted by trained healers may be considered as coherent, resonant biomagnetic emissions by which a less coherent EM field of the patient is "tuned" to the specific frequency and phase, and through which homeostasis can be "aligned" to induce "healing".“ (Roffey)
Bioresonance: Resonant Frequency Therapies
Interactions between electromagnetic fields and living matter are pursued on three levels:
Prevention: the way electromagnetic fields influence the development of illnesses.
Diagnosis: the way endogenous bio-electric signals and weak electrical and magnetic fields of bio-molecules correlate with the state of health.
Treatment: the way biological structures and functions can be modulated by means of electromagnetic fields.
Stanford cellular biologist, Bruce Lipton http://brucelipton.com characterizes the environment as awash in signals. Specific frequencies are informational signals. While the environment is in a sense "chaotic," with hundreds and thousands of simultaneously-expressed "signals," the cell can selectively read only those signals that are relevant to its existence.
Physiology reveals that most of the body's natural chemicals are released by an electrical signal or an electrochemical reaction. Can these same chemicals be released by applying an external electrical signal? Can different EM parameters stimulate different chemical systems?
Simply stated, can externally applied bioelectromagnetic fields influence cell and organismal behavior and expression? The answer is a clear, resounding, and unequivocal, YES! Through event-related synchronization and desynchronization.
Electromagnetic energy fields, which include energies in the ranges of microwaves, radio-frequencies, the visible light spectrum, ELF and even acoustic frequencies, have been shown to profoundly impact every facet of biological regulation. Specific frequencies and patterns of electromagnetic radiation regulate: cell division; gene regulation; DNA, RNA and protein syntheses; protein conformation and function; morphogenesis; bone growth, regeneration; and nerve conduction and growth.
As evidence has mounted that bioeffects of EM fields that are not only dwarfed by much larger intrinsic bioelectric processes, but may also be substantially below the level of tissue thermal noise. Theoretical and experimental studies now seek the first transductive steps. Answers to that important question are currently sought in EM field interactions with free radicals that have a role at electric power frequencies and at the other extreme in the EM spectrum in bioeffects of millimeter waves. (Adey)
If electromagnetic fields can affect enzymes and cells, there is no reason of principle why one should not expect to be able to tailor a waveform as a therapeutic agent in much the same way as one now modulates chemical structures to obtain pharmacological selectivity. The high specificity of electromagnetic signals may result in the "direct targeting" of activity, without many of the side-effects common to pharmaceutical substances.
We are primarily energetic and informational beings with field dependent chemical reactions. Typically, the treatment of biological effects of EM fields is restricted to ionizing radiation and membrane potentials. But Integrative Biophysics is more than a molecular-genetic approach to biology. It focuses on our intrinsic systemic holism, an inseparable whole with the environment, interconnection within and without the organism.
Professor Fritz-Albert Popp, a well-known biophysicist at Kaiserslautern University, Germany, states that:"All living organisms emit certain electromagnetic waves. If they are in a healthy condition, they emit more. If not, they emit less. This electromagnetic emission is called biophotons."
Biophotonics is a rapidly increasing field of current scientific research and applications, based on the discovery of biophotons, a permanent, weak photon current emanating from all living systems. The biophoton emission reflects some, if not all, of the essential biological and physiological activities in biological systems. Energy and information can move about the body through other means than nerve transmission and hormonal regulation via quantum coherence.
Biophotonics provides a powerful tool for investigating these electromagnetic interactions. The theoretical approach requires holistic models of living systems, rather than local analytical models. Consequently, these new insights into living matter create a new basis of "integrative biophysics" that is concerned with the questions of EM regulation, communication and organization of biological systems.
