ABSTRACT: Complex information can be encoded in EM fields, as we
all know from coding and decoding of television and radio signals.
Even more complex information can be encoded in holographic images.
DNA acts as a holographic projector of acoustic and EM information which
contains the informational quintessence of the biohologram. Only
3% of human DNA encodes the physical body. The remaining 97% of the
3 billion base pair genome contains over a million genetic structures called
transposons, that have the capacity to jump from one chromosomal location
to another (Kelleher, 1999). We are 99.9% alike in our genetic legacy.
Our individuality is expressed in three million small variations in our
cells, called single nucleotide polymorphisms.
Gene-expression is the mechanism by which new patterns are called into
being (Rossi, 2000). There is also a strong correlation between modulation
of the brain’s EM field and consciousness (Persinger, 1987; McFadden, 2002).
The Gariaev group has discovered a wave-based genome and DNA phantom effect
which strongly supports the holographic concept of reality (Miller, Webb,
Dickson, 1975). This main information channel of DNA is the same
for both photons and radio waves. Superposed coherent waves of different
types in the cells interact to form diffraction patterns, firstly in the
acoustic domain, secondly in the electromagnetic domain -- a quantum hologram
-- a translation process between acousticall and optical holograms.
Creative, novel and enriching psychotherapeutic experiences can lead to
neurogenesis, gene expression, and healing which facilitate mindbody communication
and can have a long-term transformative effect on the whole person (Rossi,
2002). Thus, bioholography has relevant applications for optimizing
health, well-being and even self-realization. It is relevant in biophysics,
medicine, psychobiology, psychotherapy and the holistic healing arts.
It provides us with a more genetically integrated model of the complex
dynamics of the mindbody -- one arising in the domain underlying the standard
genetic code triplet model.
Hypothesis: The organization of any biological system is established
by a complex electrodynamic field which is, in part, determined by its
atomic physiochemical components. These, in part, determine the behavior
and orientation of these components. This dynamic is mediated through
wave-based genomes wherein DNA functions as the holographic projector of
the psychophysical system – a quantum biohologram.
A model of the mind-body relationship is developed in which novel biophysical
principles in genome function generate a dynamic possessing attributes
consistent with both our psychophysical nature and consciousness. The model
invokes a fractal link between neurodynamical chaos and quantum uncertainty.
Transactional wave collapse allows this link to be utilized predictively
by the excitable cell, in a way which bypasses and complements formal computation.
The formal unpredictability of the model allows mind to interact upon the
brain, the predictivity of consciousness in survival strategies being selected
as a trait by organismic evolution (King, 2001). This quantum evolution
is orchestrated by the information transduction of DNA.
The Gariaev group (1994) has proposed a theory of the Wave-based Genome
where the DNA-wave functions as a Biocomputer. They suggest (1)
that there are genetic "texts", similar to natural context-dependent texts
in human language; (2) that the chromosome apparatus acts simultaneously
both as a source and receiver of these genetic texts, respectively decoding
and encoding them; (3) the chromosome continuum acts like a dynamical holographic
grating, which displays or transduces weak laser light and solitonic electro-acoustic
The distribution of the character frequency in genetic texts is fractal,
so the nucleotides of DNA molecules are able to form holographic pre-images
of biostructures. This process of "reading and writing" the very
matter of our being manifests from the genome's associative holographic
memory in conjunction with its quantum nonlocality. Rapid transmission
of genetic information and gene-expression unite the organism as holistic
entity embedded in the larger Whole. The system works as a biocomputer
-- a wave biocomputer.
The quantum nonlocality of the genetic information is fundamental.
Experimental work of the Gariaev group shows how quantum nonlocality is
directly related to laser radiation from chromosomes (coherent light),
which jitterbugs its polarization plane to radiate or occlude photons.
DNA and the genome have now been identified as active "laser-like" environments.
Roughly speaking, DNA can be considered as a liquid crystal gel-like state
that acts on the incoming light in the manner of a solitonic lattice.
A soliton is an ultra stable wave train that arises in the context of non-linear
wave oscillation. The DNA reading process can be modelled as a complex
mechanical oscillator capable of producing solitonic wave transmissions.
DNA, modelled as a kind of rotary pendulum can be simulated as a chain
of non-linear oscillators. Complex dynamic patterns arise when taking
into account the non-linear covalent connections between nucleotides.
The same researchers suspect the ability of chromosomes to transform their
own genetic-sign laser radiations into broadband genetic-sign radio waves.
The polarizations of chromosome laser photons are connected nonlocally
and coherently to polarizations of radio waves. Thus, we have an explicit
physical analogue for the traditional mystical apprehension of inner Light
and the Audible Life Stream. This is the main information channel
of DNA, the same for both photons and radio waves. Superposed coherent
waves of different types in the cells interact to form diffraction patterns,
firstly in the acoustic domain, secondly in the electromagnetic domain
-- a quantum hologram -- a translation proccess between acoustical and optical
I. QUANTUM BIOHOLOGRAPHY
In Languages of the Brain (1971), Pribram postulated a neural hologram
made by the interaction of waves in the cortex, which in turn is based
on a hologram of much shorter wavelengths formed by the wave interactions
on the sub-atomic level. Thus, we have a hologram within a hologram,
and the interrelatedness of the two somehow gives rise to our sensory images.
Bohm (1980), in Wholeness and the Implicate Order went further,
declaring the brain is a hologram interpreting a holographic universe.
In a holographic model this inseparable interconnectedness begins at the
even more fundamental level of human existence, rooted in our existential
blueprint, DNA. The brain is a hologram, enfolded within our holographic
mind-body, enfolded within a holographic universe.
Recent discoveries by Russian scientists Peter Gariaev, et al and later
speculations by Vladimir Poponin shed tremendous light on our proposal
that the human being is a transducer of universal energy and consciousness
-- essentially a biocomputer. The neww feature of this research is
the ability to physically demonstrate subtle fields emerging from the quantum
foam or vacuum potential. This makes the effect quantifiable and
measurable -- objective.
This takes the phenomenon and subjectivity of consciousness out of the
realm of quantum metaphysics and plants it firmly under the rubric of hard
science. It heralds the unification of quantum mechanical and chaotic
dynamics in human consciousness. We can now model the human bio-computer.
Poponin (1995) boldly suggests that this deeper understanding of the mechanisms
underlying subtle energy phenomena include many of the observed alternative
healing phenomena and includes a physical theory of consciousness.
This hypothesis is based on a precise quantitative background and combines
both quantum mechanics and complexity or chaos dynamics in a startling
and compelling new way. It posits that some new field structure is
being excited from the physical vacuum by an intrinsic ability that emerges
Gariaev discovered the DNA Phantom Effect in 1985, when he worked in correlation
spectroscopy of DNA, ribosomes and collagen in the Institute of Physics,
in the Academy of Science of the USSR. He was first able to publish
his results in 1991, leading to a book in 1994, Wave Based Genome.
His DNA Phantom Effect demonstrates a dynamic new field in the vacuum substructure
by bombarding it with coherent laser light and coupling it to conventional
electromagnetic fields. The experimental protocols for this procedure
are rigorous, and have been reproduced in Moscow and at Stanford.
R. A. Miller, I. Miller, and B. Webb (2001) are now consulting on the project
to suggest the next research directions and applications. Miller
and Webb have a long-standing background in this field. Long before David
Bohm published his Wholeness and the Implicate Order (1980), Miller
and Webb published "A Holographic Concept of Reality" in the journal Psychoenergetic
Systems, ed. Stanley Krippner, Vol. 1, 1975. 55-62. Gordon
& Breach Science Publishers Ltd., Great Britain.
"Holographic Concept" was later reprinted in the book Psychoenergetic
Systems, S. Krippner, editor. 1979. 231-237. Gordon
& Breach, New York, London, Paris. It was reprinted again in
the journal Psychedelic Monographs and Essays, Vol. 5, 1992.
93-111. Boynton Beach, FL, Tom Lyttle, Editor.
This foundational paper was followed shortly by "Embryonic Holography:
An Application of the Holographic Concept of Reality", also in 1973. Presented
at the Omniversal Symposium, California State College at Sonoma, Saturday,
September 29, 1973. Reprinted in Lyttle's journal Psychedelic
Monographs and Essays, Vol. 6, 1993. 137-156. Miller followed this
project with a proposal prepared for the government through Mankind Research
Unlimited, described in a formerly unpublished, proprietary paper called
"Bioluminescence, Kirlian Photography and Medical Diagnostics" (1974),
which is only now seeing the light of day. It was an application
of his paper on "The Physical Mechanisms of Kirlian Photography."
In 1993, Iona Miller published "The Holographic Paradigm and the Consciousness
Restructuring Process," another application to psychotherapeutic mindbody
healing. Subsequently she has published extensively on the role of complex
dynamics in relationship to consciousness and process-oriented psychotherapy,
through Asklepia Foundation. A deep interest in the nature of Synergetics
(Fuller, 1975), cosmic zero, the vacuum potential, or quantum foam has
led her to develop innovative applications of chaos theory in consciousness
studies. She has dovetailed many of those discoveries with the reports
of mystics of their intuitive inner-plane experiences of Light and Sound
(Shabd) throughout history (Singh, 1979; Blavatsky, 1987; Puri, 1964; Miller
and Miller, 1983). Could it be that these mystics somehow perceive
holographic processes when they look inside themselves? But that
philosophical question is best addressed elsewhere.
Here, in this presentation, the joint work of decades by Miller, Miller
and Webb comes to fruition and perhaps finds a physical proof.
The organization of any biological system is established by a complex electrodynamic
field. This em field is, in part, determined by its atomic physiochemical
components and which, in part, determines the behavior and orientation
of these components. The holographic model of reality emerging from
this principle provides a scientific explanation of psychoenergetic phenomena,
(Miller, Webb, Dickson, 1973).
In 1973, Miller and Webb suggested bioholograms as the projectors of our
material reality: in the nuclei of each cell in the human body, the DNA
(deoxyribonucleic acid) carries the structure of our whole body.
Not just our physical form, but also the processes that that form undergoes
in terms of survival. If all of these things are in truth locked
in the DNA, how does that turn into a functioning being?
The DNA could possibly be the holographic projectors. The DNA could
be projecting a field that would be experienced by other DNA in the body.
The DNA molecules, in a sense, could be linked together. The
DNAs are also linked to their own cell, which they are controlling via
mechanisms of RNA transfer and enzymatic action in the cell. We believe
that it is likely that the DNA and the RNA are in non-local communication.
It is known from the EPR phenomenon that entangled photons retain a mutual
informational bond even at a distance, through polarization, and allow
a kind of quantum teleportation, which has finally been experimentally
DNA molecules, included in chromosomes, possess a substance--wave duality
which is similar to the dualism of elementary particles. In accordance
with it, DNA codes an organism in two ways, both with the assistance of
DNA matter and by DNA sign wave functions, including coding at its own
laser radiation level - .
The genetic apparatus can be non-local at the molecular level (holographic
memory of a chromosome continuum) and at the same time quantum mechanically
non-local in compliance with the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen effect . The
latter means that the genome genetic and other regulatory wave information
is recorded at the polarization level of its photons and is non-locally
(everywhere and in no time) transferred (plays out) throughout the entire
space of a biosystem by the polarization code parameter. This helps to
set a quick-response information contact among the billions of cells constituting
The genome on the whole and the individual nucleus of cells can generate
and recognize text-associative regulatory structures with the application
of a background principle, holography and quantum non-locality. (Gariaev,
et al, 2000).
We believe that the DNA is the projector of the biohologram, both at the
cellular level and at the whole-organismic level. This means that
the DNA creates a situation of a complex pattern of three-dimensional electromagnetic
standing and moving wave fronts in the space that the organism occupies.
Other researchers soon obtained similar results, and not only based
on photons. Multi-frequency physical fields are now teleported. Based on
this data, it’s possible to suppose that photon fields, emitted by chromosomes
as sign fields, can be teleported within or even outside the organism’s
space. The same is true for wave photon fronts, which were read from the
chromosome continuum similar to reading from a multiplex hologram. If photons
are transformed into radio waves (the situation we found - ref. to [8,
33,37]) through the EPR-mechanism, then this phenomenon is vital. In fact,
the importance of quantum non-locality existence for a genome is hard to
overestimate. (Gariaev, et al, 2001).
We think that these wave fronts interact with, interpenetrate with, and
interdetermine the physical substance that makes up the creature.
According to the holographic model of reality, all the objects we can observe
are three-dimensional images formed of standing and moving waves by electromagnetic
and nuclear processes. All the objects of our world are three-dimensional
images formed electromagnetically, i.e. holograms. Just like a hologram
encodes a 3-D image, the biohologram encodes and projects the blueprint
of the human being, as well as other biological systems.
We also believe that the nervous system constitutes a coordination mechanism
that integrates DNA projections of the rest of the cells in the system,
that it is first and foremost a coordination mechanism which aligns these
Imagine the information pleroma, beyond energy and matter, as the source
of all infinitely coherent light, “shining” itself into its own entropic
womb where our temporo-spatial universe is given its life-potential as
a single laser beam.
The DNA in a particular cell is not totally active. It has been determined
that there may be as little as 1% of the DNA present in the nucleus of
the cell acting as the determinant for the structure of that cell.
The nervous system, interestingly enough, has the highest percentage of
operating DNA of any cell system in the body, of up to at least 10% of
the DNA in the brain cells. The neuron nuclei are most active.
We suggest that the nervous system projects a global biohologram which
interacts with the cellular bioholograms. If the membrane structure
of the neuron nuclei is examined closely, it will be seen that the different
cavity systems that enter the outer membrane also enter the inner
membranes, therefore topologically, these are one and the same. Hence
the nucleus is lacking a membrane, or the neurons are lacking a membrane
in the sense that two of their membranes are topologically one.
We suggest that the neurons are not actually brain cells as such.
We believe that the brain is the cell, and the neurons are like a distributed
nucleus for that cell. That makes the glial cells organelles in the
giant brain-cell. But they are also cells in their own right, much
more so than neurons are. We believe the glial cells are infinitely
involved with the biohologram, in its projections, and its coordination.
To go further, the biohologram, projected by the brain, creates standing
and moving electromagnetic wave patterns at different frequencies of the
spectrum in order to effect different biochemical transformations.
There may be specific electrostatic fields, or there may be electrodynamic
fields varying at various frequencies, from low (radio waves) all the way
up the spectrum into visible light and beyond.
Another process of holography is called "acoustical holography". Acoustical
holography employs sound waves to create a movement on a surface that is
used as the basis for creation of an optical hologram. So we essentially
convert between a pattern of sound waves reflected off an object in space
into a pattern of light waves that can reconstruct the shape of that object.
We have a transformation between two levels of vibration, two media as
it were, preserving a pattern in space. (Miller and Webb, 1973).
We suggest that this happens to a much greater degree in the DNA control
of our bodies. The liver, for example, contains special function
cells. The special function of the liver cells is created by the
influence of the projection of the liver pattern on the DNA in the cells
in the area where the liver is created. We are suggesting an important
feedback mechanism between the activation of the DNA in a particular cellular
tissue type that causes it to be that tissue type, and the biohologram
being projected by the nervous system. This is bioholography.
Returning to the recent Russian discoveries (Gariaev, and reporter Poponin),
which seem to confirm the seminal discovery of Miller and Webb: both quantitative
and qualitative data are crucial for the development of a new unified nonlinear
quantum field theory which includes the physical theory of consciousness.
The DNA phantom field effect may be interpreted as a manifestation of a
new physical vacuum structure which has been previously overlooked.
It is perhaps a specific example of a more general category of electromagnetic
Results of the experiments as described by Poponin showed that when DNA
was put in a scattering chamber and bombarded with laser light a "phantom"
was revealed, even when the DNA itself had been removed. They bombarded
it with weak coherent laser radiation in two frequencies. The intensity
of the scattered light was measured, as well as non-linear localized excitations.
They found a surprise effect while measuring the vibrational modes of DNA
in solution using a sophisticated “MALVERN” laser photon correlation spectrometer
(LPCS), which tests the fluctuation dynamics of DNA solutions.
“In each set of experimental measurements with DNA samples, several
double control measurements are performed. These measurements are
performed prior to the DNA being placed in the scattering chamber.
When the scattering chamber of the LPCS is void of physical DNA, and neither
are there any phantom DNA fields present, the autocorrelation function
of scattered light looks like the one shown in Figure 2a. This typical
control plot represents only background random noise counts of the photomultiplier.
Note that the intensity of the background noise counts is very small and
the distribution of the number of counters per channel is close to random.
Figure 2b demonstrates a typical time autocorrelation functions when a
physical DNA sample is placed in the scattering chamber, and typically
has the shape of an oscillatory and slowly exponentially decaying function.
When the DNA is removed from the scattering chamber, one anticipates that
the autocorrelation function will be the same as before the DNA was placed
in the scattering chamber. Surprisingly and counter-intuitively it
turns out that the autocorrelation function measured just after the removal
of the DNA from the scattering chamber looks distinctly different from
the one obtained before the DNA was placed in the chamber. . . Two conditions
are necessary in order to observe DNA phantoms. The first is the
presence of the DNA molecules and the second is the exposure of the DNA
to weak coherent laser radiation.” (Poponin).
Researchers hypothesize that some new field structure is being excited
from the physical vacuum substructure. As long as the chamber is
not disturbed, it is measurable for long periods of time. What is
measured is light scattering from the DNA phantom fields. What is
attained is qualitative and quantitative information about the nonlinear
dynamical properties of the phantom DNA fields. Its origin is related
to physical DNA. As yet, they have found no other substance which
recreates or emulates the effect of the DNA molecule.
It is this model which suggests a more general nonlinear quantum theory
which may explain many of the observed subtle energy phenomena and might
lead to a physical theory of consciousness.
This suggests that the electromagnetic phantom effect is a more fundamental
phenomenon which can be used to explain other observed phantom effects,
though not to be confused with the often misinterpreted secondary emission
of electrons seen in Kirlian Photography and dubbed "phantoms." [ref. R.A.
Miller on "The Physical Mechanisms of Kirlian Photography," Psychoenergetic
Systems, Stanley Krippner, ed., 1974]. Evidence suggests a relationship
to the phenomena of [endogenous] bioluminescence, liquid crystals, and
superconductivity, which we intend to pursue, elsewhere.
Bioluminescence can be considered an indicator of life activity.
It is the emission of photons of light produced when certain energized
electrons drop into a lower or ground state. A common example is
the visible light (or electromagnetic radiation) generated by the firefly.
The importance of this phenomenon is seen by taking the broad view of the
life process as we know it: photons from the sun excite electrons here
on earth; this high energy state is transformed into high energy phosphate
bonds by the process of photosynthesis; the release of the energy stored
in these bonds is the fuel of life; electrons are transferred between molecules
in a downward cascade fashion to lower energy states; this action produces
the electric current that produces the motion that we call life. (Miller,
Entities can also luminesce at higher frequencies than the normal visible
spectrum, such as in the UV or microwave region. It has been shown
that the human being is an emitter of various electromagnetic radiations.
Different emissions correspond to different body structures across the
emission spectrum. These electromagnetic radiations are of course
indicative of the energy state of the organism, and can be indicative of
the state of health.
Other research (Childre, 1992; Paddison, 1992; King, 2001) suggests that
consciousness is non-localized in the bodymind. Joseph Chilton Peace in
his latest, The Biology of Transcendence: A Blueprint of the Human Spirit,
points out that we have five neural centers or brains--and establishes
that our fourth and most recently developed brain is located in the head
while the fifth is located in the heart.
It is the dynamic interaction of this head brain (intellect) and heart
brain (intelligence), of biology and spirit, which allows transcendence
from one evolutionary place to the next. Pearce declares we are quite
literally, made to transcend. He says, "Transcendence is our biological
imperative, a state we have been moving toward for millennia."
In less scientific and more mystical terms, we emerge through self-organization
from the Void and to the Void we can return for renewal and sustenance.
It is, in fact the Heart Sutra that informs us that "Form is not
other than Void; Void is not other than Form." Our human form is
not other than this void, and biophysics now demonstrates this quantitatively
We are more fundamentally electromagnetic, rather than chemical beings.
The void state, "cosmic zero," is the primal matrix and proportionately
our most fundamental reality. In essence, we emerge from pre-geometrically
structured nothingness, and DNA is the projector of that field which sets
up the stress gradients in the vacuum or quantum foam to initiate that
process of embryonic holography, (Miller and Webb, 1973-93). The
holographic paradigm is one of reciprocal enfolding and unfolding of patterns
of information. All of the potential information about the universe
is holographically encoded in the spectrum of frequency patterns that constantly
We can imagine that the self-organizing emergent function of the “rippling”
effects of immense numbers of criss-crossing interference waves must be
one way of making mutually interactive, or reciprocal, holographic projections
of holographic projections. Our DNA projects our psychophysical self,
and likewise “our brains mathematically construct objective reality by
interpreting frequencies that are ultimately projections from another dimension,
a deeper order of existence that is beyond both space and time: The
brain is a hologram enfolded in a holographic universe,” (Talbot, 1991,
Researchers have found that at the moment of ovulation there is a definite
shift in the electrical fields of the body of the woman. The membrane
in the follicle bursts and the egg passes down the fallopian tube.
The sperm is negative with respect to the egg. When the sperm and
egg unite, the membrane around the egg becomes hyperpolarized, shutting
out other sperm. It is at this moment that the electromagnetic entity
is formed. The fertilized egg cell contains all the information necessary
to create a complete operational human being.
The biohologram begins to function at conception and ceases only at death.
Our contention is that the DNA at the center of each cell creates the multi-cellular
creature hologram by expressing the DNA in the center of the cells.
The biohologram projected by the embryonic nervous system forms a three-dimensional
pattern of resonant structures. These include points, lines, and
planes that electromagnetically behave as the acoustic waves – the material
waves – of the drumhead, acting as field guides to flowing matter and energy.
The Gariaev group has proposed a theory of the DNA-wave Biocomputer.
They suggest (1) that there are genetic "texts", similar to natural
context-dependent texts in human language; (2) that the chromosome
apparatus acts simultaneously both as a source and receiver of these genetic
texts, respectively decoding and encoding them; (3) the chromosome continuum
acts like a dynamical holographic grating, which displays or transduces
weak laser light and solitonic electro-acoustic fields. The distribution
of the character frequency in genetic texts is fractal, so the nucleotides
of DNA molecules are able to form holographic pre-images of biostructures.
In other words, the basic assumptions of the Gariaev team include the following:
1. the genome has a capacity for quasi-consciousness so that DNA “words”
produce and help in the recognition of “semantically meaningful phrases”;
2. the DNA of chromosomes control fundamental programs of life in a dual
way: as chemical matrixes and as a source of wave function and holographic
3. processes in the substance-wave structures of the genome can be observed
and registered through the dispersion and absorption of a bipolar laser
This process of "reading and writing" the very matter of our being manifests
from the genome's associative holographic memory in conjunction with its
quantum nonlocality. Rapid transmission of genetic information and gene-expression
unite the organism as holistic entity embedded in the larger Whole.
The system works as a biocomputer -- a wave biocomputer.
The quantum nonlocality of the genetic information is fundamental.
Experimental work of the Gariaev group shows how quantum nonlocality is
directly related to laser radiation from chromosomes (light), which jitterbugs
its polarization plane to radiate or occlude photons. The same researchers
suspect the ability of chromosomes to transform their own genetic-sign
laser radiations into broadband genetic-sign radio waves. Curiously,
mystics have always called the pervasive creative sacred Sound, Logos or
Word, the Audible Life Stream (Blavatsky, 1987; Hines, 1996). They
declare the Light and the Sound are one, and holographic concept is another
name for Unity.
The polarizations of chromosome laser photons are connected nonlocally
and coherently to polarizations of radio waves. The signal can be
"read out" without any loss of the essential information in the form of
polarized radio waves. The liquid crystal phases of the chromosome
apparatus (laser mirror analogues) can be considered a fractal environment
which stores the localized photons. This creates a coherent continuum
of quantum-nonlocally distributed polarized radio wave genomic information.
The genetic wave information from DNA, recorded within the polarizations
of connected photons, being quantum nonlocal, constitutes a broadband radio
wave spectrum. This spectrum is correlated by means of polarizations
with the photons. This is the main information channel of DNA, the
same for both photons and radio waves.
This biocomputer memory and retrieval program features photon-laser-radiowave
polarization spectroscopy. Complex dynamics are expressed as fractal
patterns at all levels of organization in nature. And this is no
exception. The fundamental notion is, that the photon-laser-radiowave
features of different objects (the Fourier-spectra of the radiowaves of
crystals, water, metals, DNA, etc.) are stored for definite but varying
times by means of laser mirrors, such that the "mirror spectra" concern
chaotic attractors with a complex fractal dynamics, recurring in time.
This research is the first example of a novel static storage/recording
environment (laser mirrors) capable of directly recording the space-time
atomic/molecular rotary dynamical behavior of objects. It also demonstrates
an essentially new type of radio signal, where the information is encoded
by polarizations of electromagnetic vectors. This could even be the
basis of a new type of still or video recording, leading to a new form
This newly detected phenomenon of quantized optical activity can be considered
as the means by which an organism obtains unlimited information on its
own metabolism. Such information is read by endogenous laser radiations
of chromosomes. The chromosome, in turn, produces the regulative
("semantic") radio emission of the genome biocomputer. Semantic resonances
in the biosystem's space are realized at both the wavelength level, and
level of frequencies and angles of twist of the polarization modes.
A gene has a holographic memory, (which is typically distributed, associative,
and nonlocal), where the holograms "are read" by electromagnetic or acoustic
fields. These carry the gene-wave information out beyond the limits
of the chromosome structure. At this and subsequent levels, the nonlocality
takes on its dualistic material-wave nature, as may also be true for the
holographic memory of the cerebral cortex (Pribram, 1991).
Pribram posits a neural holographic process, wherein images are reconstructed
when representations in the form of distributed information systems are
appropriately engaged. These representations operate as filters or
screens. The temporary organization of cortical columns and the arrival
of impulses at neuronal junctions converge from at least two sources, forming
interference patterns. These patterns are made up of classical postsynaptic
potentials, coordinated with awareness. This microstructure of slow
potentials is accurately described by the equations that describe the holographic
process which is also composed of interference patterns.
From this it follows that in the brain information representing input is
distributed over the entire extent of the neural pattern. In the
bodymind information is also holographically distributed, each "part" having
more or less information about the whole organism. Information is
fractally distributed and present in greater or lesser resolution.
A neural holographic or similar process does not mean that input information
is distributed willy-nilly over the entire depth and surface of the brain.
It is confined primarily to those limited regions where reasonably stable
junctional designs are initiated by the input participating in the distribution.
Holographic memory processing does away with the need for keeping track
of where information is stored. The "filter," "sieve," or "screen"
of holographic patterns is composed not only of the lattice of membrane
macromolecules making up the synapto-dedritic net, but also of a facilitation
of all tendencies toward Image formation and the initiation of certain
departure patterns of nerve impulses (Pribram, 1971).
At the junctional patterns of neural activity, Image forming capacity is
enhanced. Superposition, i.e. spatial interactions among phase relationships
of neighboring junctional patterns occurs, with properties akin to those
of optical information processing systems -- the properties of holograms.
Chaotic dynamics are part of this image-forming process. There is order
even in disorder. There is order, manageable chaos (fractals) and
unmanageable chaos. The fractal dimension expresses the complexity
of a particular fractal form. “Fractal” comes from the Latin fractus,
which mean broken or fragmented. Fractals delineate a whole new way
of thinking about structure and form -- even the forms of dis-ease, which
take root organically in the body and psyche.
Like holograms, magnify a fractal again and again and more detail emerges
from its infinitely embedded structure. The same self-similar patterns
repeat, over and over, no matter what level you care to examine.
You look closer and closer and still see the same form. A single
image is infinitely reiterated. Thus, a wealth of structure emerges
from simplicity. So, too, the dis-ease process can be seen at the
physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. Yet, the form
remains the same.
"At the most fundamental level of our individual being, we too, our
bodies and our psyches are part of the interference patterns caused by
the interaction of consciousness and wave fronts arising from fields of
infinite possibility. We then must also operate by holographic principles,
thus our internal perception of this reality is itself a hologram in our
brain. It is the means of perception that gives the universe its
apparent forms and solidity. It is also this holographic perception
that influences the dynamics of our brain's and our body's chemistry, our
self-hologram. In this perceptual hologram resides the fundamental
basis of our structure and our sense of self and external environment,
including our health and illness in both our physiological and psychological
being. Our disease structures are incorporated
within it. It is here, at this level of our being where fundamental healing
and physical-psychic restructuring occur. This hologram is what I
have termed the primal existential sensory self-image or existential hologram.
. .our sense of self is a holographic, existential, multi-sensory image."
The key to this process lies in our DNA, in our genes and gene-expression.
Our understanding of the human biocomputer must be based on a new understanding
of the higher forms of the DNA memory, and the chromosome apparatus, as
the recording, storaging, transducing, and transmitting system for genetic
information, to be considered simultaneously at the level of matter and
The wave-biocomputer model helps explain the apparatus of protein biosynthesis
of living organisms, providing an important interpretation of the initial
stages within the hierarchic chain of material and field, sign, holographic,
semiotic-semantic and, and figurative encoding and deciphering of chromosome
functions. At the gene-sign continuum of any biosystem, DNA forms
pre-images of biostructures and the organism as a whole as a registry of
dynamical "wave copies" or "matrices", succeeding each other. This
continuum is the measuring, calibrating field for constructing or creating
any biosystem, (Gariaev).
II. MECHANISMS: QUANTUM MECHANICS AND COMPLEX DYNAMICS
A quick review of the Holographic Concept refreshes us on the basics of
Particles found in biological processes include photons, electrons, protons,
elementary ions, inorganic radicals, organic radicals, molecules, and molecular
aggregates. Photons act upon electrons by raising their energy state.
This process is called excitation. Excited electrons can drop back
to more stable energy levels and emit photons. Electron excitation
can lead to the formation of an electronic bond between molecules.
This is the traditional bond of classical chemistry. The breaking
of such bonds can, by reverse process, lead to the excitation of electrons.
In living systems the excitation of electrons by photons and the subsequent
conversion of that excitation into the bond energy is called photosynthesis
and is the basic builder of biological structures. The reversal of
this process is called bioluminescence. This phenomenon is the transfer
of energy from a bond to an excited electron, resulting in the emission
of a photon. It has been suggested by Szent-Gyorgyi (1957: 8) that
the energetics of living creatures can be understood in terms of photosynthesis
and its reversal, bioluminescence.
All cellular processes are driven by energy derived from the breaking of
chemical bonds and the excitation of electrons. Depending upon the
particular environment and circumstances, the excitation of the electron
can be converted in one of three ways: (1) conversion into heat and dissipation
(2) translation of molecules or ions through the cell, or (3) transformation
of the molecules' shapes which profoundly influences their biological reactivity.
The formation of a certain type of chemical bond known as the resonance
bond (which is most easily seen in the case of the Benzene molecule) leads
to a peculiar situation in which certain electrons are freed from a local
or particular location in the molecule. These are then free to travel
around the entire molecule. This means that the electrons occupy
an energy shell of the whole molecule as opposed to any particular atom
in the molecule. The existence of molecular systems with mobile electrons
has been found to be of profound significance in the phenomena of life.
Hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen, which compose 99 percent of all
living systems, are among the atoms in the periodic table which form the
multiple bonds most easily leading to mobile electrons. Sulphur and
phosphorus, which are extremely important for life processes, also form
such multiple bonds quite easily.
All the essential biochemical substances, which perform the fundamental
functions of living matter, are composed completely or partially of such
mobile electrons. Molecules which contain these electrons are known
as conjugated systems (Pullman and Pullman, 1963, chapter 18). The
essential fluidity of life may correspond with the fluidity of the electronic
cloud in conjugated molecules. Such systems may best be considered
as both the cradle and the main backbone of life.
Conjugate bonded molecules may interact in a variety of ways. Among
these types of interaction can be found the interpenetration of electron
orbitals which permits an electromagnetic coupling. This coupling
can permit activated electron energy to pass from one molecule to another
in the same way a radio can transmit a message to a radio receiver.
There is also the possibility of the transfer of an entire electron which
is known as charge transfer.
It is possible for a molecular complex to contain several radicals at different
positions on the main molecule, each of which are conjugated. If
these are in close enough proximity, or can be brought into proximity by
changes in the structural configuration of the molecule, a charge can pass
between these two groups. This is the case of the transfer of electron
charges on or around a single molecular complex. It has been suggested
by Szent-Gyorgyi (1968) that the sugars and phosphates that make up the
side of the alpha helix of DNA can permit the passage of electrons, functioning
as a conductor.
The biological conduction systems operate primarily on an amorphous semiconductor
mode as opposed to resembling metallic conductors. These do not have sharply
defined energy bands in which electrons may flow, as opposed to other bands
in which they are bound rigidly. There is a spread or bell-curve
in which the points or tails are bound more closely to a particular molecule.
The hump indicates a conducting band that permits electrons to flow across
the surface of a particular molecule or between molecules (McGinness, 1972).
This means, in essence, that protein molecules which are composed of amino
acid sequences, may act as organic circuits. The amino acids each
have a donor group and an acceptor group on opposing ends. This means
that a string or series of amino acids could pass a charge along as if
it were being passed along a series of spines sticking up from the main
body of the molecule.
Different pathways could be defined across the surface of a protein molecule
by the amino acid radicals projecting out from the surface of the protein.
The shape of the protein molecules is a function of the charges and the
conjugate systems on the radicals that make up the protein. When
a protein is manufactured and peels off the ribosome, it immediately assumes
a three-dimensional spatial pattern that is directly related to the charges
on its surface and the ways in which they interact.
The biological activity or specificity of action of various molecules is
intimately related to their structure or their exact three-dimensional
spatial configuration. Electronic energy and electrons can move through
a protein molecule between its different parts and can pass among different
molecules. We now come to understand a possible mechanism for biological
regulation involving flows of electrons and transfer of electronic energy
between molecules. These can change their shape and thereby change
their specific action and activity. The fusion of electron clouds
can exist within a conjugated system and among conjugated systems.
This can account for cohesion or the adherence of such molecules to each
other. Such fusion is a very important determinate of the structure
of larger aggregates of molecules and portions of living cells, such as
III. BIOHOLOGRAM FIELD THEORY
A liquid crystal in a cell through its own structure becomes a proto-organ
for mechanical and electrical activity, and when associated in specialized
cells in higher animals gives rise to true organs such as muscles and nerves.
The oriented molecules in liquid crystals furnish an ideal medium for catalytic
action, particularly of the complex type needed to account for growth and
reproduction. A liquid crystal has the possibility of its own structure
through singular lines, rods and cones, etc. Such structures belong
to the liquid crystal as a unit and not to its molecules which may be replaced
by others without destroying them, and they persist in spite of the complete
fluidity of the substance (Needham, 1936).
Bernal's statement (1933) would seem to support Burr and Northrop's macro-atomic
theory (1935), which postulates that there are two aspects to reality,
the field and the particle. They associate the field with what they
term the macroscopic aspect and the electron with the particle. They
associate the field with what they term the macroscopic aspect and the
electron with the particle. The particle is associated with movement.
The structure of biological material seems to be associated with the field
aspect. The electric field causes polarization of the macromolecules
in the solution due to the fact that molecules possess a dipole moment,
and changes the position of protons in the molecule. Such action
can affect the relative stability of different possible configurations
of the macromolecules. The field affects the degree of structure
present in the solution.
A constant magnetic field can, in principle, affect the various processes
in biological objects. Three possible mechanisms for this biomagnetic
affect are (1) the orientation of diamagnetic or paramagnetic molecules
by the magnetic field (2) distortions of the angles in the molecules and
(3) orientation of the spins of molecules in a magnetic field (Fowler and
Bernal, 1933; Freedericks and Zolina, 1933; Van Iterson, 1933; Osborne,
Ambrose and Stuart, 1970). Presman (1970) has postulated that such
electromagnetic fields normally serve as conveyors of information, from
the environment to the organism, within the organism, and among organisms.
He suggests that organisms employ these fields in conjunction with the
well known sensory, nervous, and endocrine systems, in effecting coordination
Muses (1970) has proposed the possibility of unit impulse functions evolving
from the Gaussian. His work traces the relation of that mathematical
concept to quantum biological indeterminacy in terms of a process of the
modulation of random fluctuations by target-seeking perturbations which
points the way to the understanding and computing of the parameters of
volitional experience in quantum biological terms. He maintains that
we are dealing with Gaussian wave packets, put to use in terms of a close-range
reaction in turn resulting in the resonant microbiological specificity
(arising from the relatively large number of specific molecular parameters)
necessary to the essential life and evolutional processes of chromosome
synapses, replication, and mutagenesis.
Muses holds that inherently indeterminate processes may be biologically
used in achieving determinate ones such as our repeatable and commonly
accepted volitional experiences of effort and direction. The range
of quantum indeterminate fluctuation of biological efficacy is in the far
ultraviolet, and it is in this spectral region that we should expect to
look for any modulation effects on Gaussian wave packets by volitional
energies manifesting as ultramicrobiological field perturbations.
Biologically, there is a threshold of non-randomicity below which peaks
tend to emerge that are sharp enough to possess biodirectiveness in an
enzyme-guiding sense. Random biological quantum energies which are
physiologically unassigned are the clue to psychosomatic directing, which
can be beneficial or deleterious to the organism. Muses (1970) describes
the mechanism of this effect as a microbiolaser type process.
Heisenberg explored the possible relevance of the quantum indeterminacy
of elementary particles for biological systems, especially human systems
(discussed in Koestler, 1972). He stated that there are two places
in the human system where the quantum indeterminacy of a single particle
can have a profound influence. The first important effect is that
of mutation in the genetic code. The second important influence is
the alteration of the behavior of neurons during human thought processes.
Tien (1969) has conceptualized mind as mass in relative motion and brain
as energy at relative electrical charges in motion, like electrons bombarding
a television screen, and personality is seen as a time series of scintillating
frames of consciousness. Personality becomes a reverbating input-output
pattern of self-creation, seeking information or patterns of energy from
the environment as well as from its own memories. The stability of
any given personality of its identity is maintained by feedback upon the
principle of most similarity.
The personality never recreates itself, but creates only a close approximation
which is accepted due to the principle of constancy as being the same.
The phenomena of unique individuality and personal continuity depend on
memory, of which consciousness is the most recent and, thereby, the most
subject to erasure and loosening. Personality transformation becomes
energy pattern modification of not only scintillating consciousness but
also of recent circulating memories and older stored memories of childhood.
According to the holographic model of reality, all the objects we can observe
are three-dimensional images formed of standing and moving waves by electromagnetic
and nuclear processes. All the objects of our world are three-dimensional
images formed electro-magnetically, i.e., holograms.
This concept and the models of human information processing based on the
hologram, throw interesting light on the philosophical tradition which
holds that the world of objects is an illusion. With the triumph
of relativity and quantum physics, the interpenetration of the philosophical
and the scientific is possible.
LeShan (1969) has observed, in discussing some individuals who purportedly
experience psycho-energetic phenomena, that their view of the universe
as a great thought of which they are a part is quite similar to many physicists'
view that they see reality only in their own mental image.
We propose that the "reality hologram" which appears as a stable world
of material objects is the elementary particle which has a long-term existence
and fairly simple rules of interaction. We also propose the existence
of a "biohologram" which appears as mobile and evolving, through the DNA
molecule. This "biohologram" projects a dynamic three-dimensional
image that serves as a guiding matrix for the manipulation and organization
of the "reality hologram." (Miller, Webb, Dickson, 1973).
Thus we have mobile self-organizing holograms moving through a relatively
static simpler hologram. The possibility exists that such "bioholograms"
could achieve sufficient coherence to continue existence as a pattern of
radiant energy apart from a material substrate. We feel that such
an occurrence could form the scientific basis of such psychoenergetic phenomena
as psycho-kinesis, clairvoyance, telepathy, and precognition.
Quantum holography asserts that DNA satisfies the principle of computer
construction as defined by Von Neumann (1966). It carries a copy
of itself and is its own blueprint written in the genetic texts where the
mechanism engineering the DNA replication is the biophotonic electromagnetic
field, while the "letters" of the genetic texts, A, G, C, U are held invariant.
In replication of the organism, the blueprint creates the "acoustic field"
which mechanically constructs/engineers the organisms out of the available
matter, in accordance with the information held in the electromagnetic
Both quantum entanglement and therefore quantum teleportation can be related
to quantum holography, through solitons, resonance effects, and superconductivity.
Experimental evidence confirms that the mutual recognition of one DNA antiparallel
half chain (+) by the other (-) concerns special super persistent/resonant
acoustic-electromagnetic waves or solitons. DNA solitons express two types
of memory which concern the capability of non-linear systems to remember
initial modes of energisation and to periodically repeat them [Dubois,
1992]. The DNA liquid crystals within the chromosome structure form
such a non-linear system. The DNA-continuum is quasi-holographic/fractal
and relates, as is the case for any hologram or fractal, to the fundamental
property of biosystems, i.e. their ability to restore the whole out of
DNA solitary waves (solitons), and in particular, the nucleotide waves
of oscillatory rotation, "read" the genome's sign patterns, so that such
sign vibratory dynamics may be considered as one of many genomic, non-linear
dynamic semiotic processes. The key parameter of such patterns is
fractality. It can therefore be hypothesized that the grammar of
genetic texts is a special case of the general grammar of all human languages.
We can realize the wave-coding capabilities of the matter-wave sign functions
of DNA as true wave control capabilities facilitates in an aqueous solution
acting as a liquid-crystal condition. The living cell is a computer
based on DNA.
The genome has been identified as an active "laser-like" environment.
Yet this approach to DNA-wave biocomputation means entering into new semiotic
areas of the human genome and the biosphere in general. These are
the areas which are used by Nature to create humankind. The quasi-speech
of chromosomes of all organisms concerns semantic exobiological influences
wherein DNA acts as a kind of aerial open to the reception of internal
influences and changes within the organism as well as those outside it.
This extends beyond it to the extent of the entire universe through complex
fractal embedding and non-locality.
Creation of biocomputers can be based on these totally new principles of
DNA-wave biocomputation, which use quantum teleportation [Sudbury, 1997],
(see also SciAmer on quantum teleportation). Experiments show that
DNA considered as a liquid-crystal gel-like state, reveals a periodically
reoccurring pattern which acts on the incoming light in the manner of a
solitonic lattice. What could such an action achieve?
A soliton is an ultra stable wave train often with a seemingly simple closed
shape, which can arise in the context of non-linear wave oscillations.
Really it consists of a rather complexly interrelated assembly of sub wave
structures, which keep the whole solotonic process in a stationary state
over a comparatively long time. The soliton is neither a particle
nor wave in much the same as a quantum is characterized by wave-particle
duality. It is a means to carry information. It probably reads
the codons, as a travelling "window" that opens in the double helix structure
as the reading takes place. In this model the reading process is
a complex mechanical oscillator (Gariaev, 1994), capable of producing solitonic
wave transmissions, which take the form of a system of rotary pendulums.
DNA forms such pendulums in this model which are simulated as a chain of
non-linear oscillators. The window as it travels is highly context
dependent on the actual layout of the elements as specified by the actual
genetic code sequence involved. Complex dynamic patterns arise in the non-linear
covalent connections between nucleotides. Oscillatory activities
are located somewhere together in the "acoustic" wave domain.
As a liquid crystal, DNA probably influences the polarization of the weak
light emission known to exist in cells, as so-called biophotons.
Such biophotonic, mitogenic radiation or mitogenic light, while being ultraweak,
is yet highly coherent. It has an inherent laser-like quality.
Endogenous intracellular coherent light is emitted by the DNA molecule
The superposed coherent waves of different types in the cells are interacting
to form diffraction patterns, first in the "acoustic" domain and then in
the electromagnetic domain. This is a kind of quantum hologram.
Interactions of solitonic oscillations in the liquid crystal structure
of DNA and the polarization vector of the ultraweak biophotonic highly
coherent light, could be understood as a mechanism of translation between
holograms in the "acoustic" frequency domain of short range effects and
those in the electromagnetic domain, and vice versa.
Quantum holography has been used to predict the workings of MRI (Schempp,
1992,1998). The DNA-wave biocomputer model is also in agreement with
the qubit model explanation of DNA.
In the quantum holographic DNA-wave biocomputer theory, DNA is a self-calibrating
antenna working by phase conjugate adaptive resonance capable of both receiving
and transmitting quantum holographic information stored in the form of
diffraction patterns -- quantum holograms. The model describes how
during the development of an embryo of the DNA's organism, these holographic
patterns carry the essential holographic information necessary for that
The quantum holographic theory requires that the DNA consists of two antiparallel
(phase conjugate) helices, between which are located hologram planes/holographic
gratings, where the necessary 3 spatial dimensional holographic image data
of the organism is stored. Endogenous laser illumination can be expected
to turn the DNA into a series of active adaptive phase conjugate mirrors/holographic
transducers. A beam of radiation resonantly emerges on which is carried
the holographic information as encoded in the DNA. This confirms
the quantum holographic prediction that DNA functions as an antenna capable
of both encoding and decoding holographic information.
We can also model the quantum holography of the neuron. This model
is in good accord with the biological neuron's information processing morphology
and signal dynamics. This is the quantum holographic model of the
brain as a conscious system. We can incorporate signal theory into
quantum physics through the concept of the pilot wave or radar.
Quantum holography predicts polarized or orthogonally rotated holograms
encoded on a "paged" associative holographic memory. Sharp frequency
adaptive coupling conditions specify very narrow spectral windows, i.e.
the "pages." "Magic windows" are a naturally tuned frequency of a good
hyperchannel between orthogonal frames where scalar wave anenergies crosstalk
readily. They are frequency dependent interdimensional nodal points.
Some magic windows are 38-40 lHz; 150-160 kHz; 1.1-1.3 MHz; 1.057 (Lambshift)
and the near ultraviolet (life energy frequency), (Beardon, 1988).
Described in terms of tensor multiplication, the orthgonality condition
can be seen as specifying a set of diagonal elements, which traces in a
unit matrix in the frequency domain. The planes on which the base
pairing takes place concerns two quantum holograms. The tensor operation,
in quantum holography, describes a quantum entanglement.
Murray Gell-Mann describes quantum entanglement in The Quark and the
Jaguar (1994). He first points out that coarse graining can wash
out interference terms. The interference terms between two coarse-grained
histories is the sum of all the interference terms between pairs of fine-grained
histories belonging to those two coarse-grained ones. The underlying
explanation for decoherence is the mechanism that makes interference terms
sum to zero and permits the assignment of probabilities. It is the
entanglement of what is followed in the coarse-grained histories with what
is ignored and summed over.
IV. BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF SCALAR ENERGY
There aren't but a few known forces in nature and we are all stuck when
it comes to finding out what their actual sources are. The best physics
has been able to do is ascribe them to some fundamental characteristics
of the universe, a charge of some kind. That's why we can more abstractly
view a force as the variation of a certain potential and therefore practically
every influence field can be thought of as a force field. This potential
can be a scalar as in the case of Coulomb's law; a vector as in the case
of the electromagnetic vector potential which neatly streamlines the mathematics
of Maxwell's equations; or, even a tensor, which is the case of the metric
tensor of the Riemann space in Einstein's GTR equations.
There is a predominance of non-linear processes in biological systems.
Several types of quasi-particles, each with their own characteristic resonant
frequencies have been proposed to mediate these non-linear phenomenon,
including solitons, excitons, and plasmons. The right frequencies
of non-linear energies might have profound healing properties, according
to Stanford researcher Dr. Glen Rein. Due to the non-linear nature
of biological systems it is proposed that scalar waves should be more biologically
active than their linear electromagnetic counterparts.
In the simplest cases, scalar resonance can be imagined as two ordinary
single-frequency EM standing waves in a resonant cavity, with the two waves
coupled exactly 180 degrees out of phase so that --externally--their E
fields sum to zero and the capacity is said to be in scalar resonance.
The cavity walls must act as phase conjugate mirrors (PCM). Mass
itself is simply a standing scalar resonance, with the standing walls tapped
by particle spin. The atomic nucleus continually bombarded by virtual
photon flux from the vacuum is a pumped PCM. Since the nucleus is
positively charged, it produces Phase Conjugate Peplicators (PCRs), having
negative energy and negative time. It thus produces negentropy, which
prevents the entropic decay of the atom. Essentially all frequencies
can be and are present at once, but certain nuclear resonance frequencies
are thought to predominate. By increasing the amplitude of the standing
scalar wave that is the nuclear pseudopotential, inertia and mass of the
nucleus are increased. Zeroing the amplitude dematerializes the nucleus.
So, scalar energy is transduced into linear electromagnetic energy in the
body by liquid crystals in the cell membrane and solid crystals found in
the blood and in several biological tissues. Clinical studies of
the effects of scalar energy on the mind-body and brainwaves have been
conducted since the 1980s. If they can be believed, research from
Stanford University Medical Center produced some tantalizing results.
Electrochemical oscillation between membrane-bound lipids near phase-transition
temperature have been analyzed with and described by nonlinear quantum
mechanical equations. They also analyzed the coupling between harmonic
oscillators represented by action potentials generated from active neuronal
networks in the central nervous system, finding evidence of chaos.
The extraction of scalar components from Maxwell's original electromagnetic
equations and from Schrodinger's equation using imaginary numbers has been
reported, and their unusual non-linear waves described by many experimenters.
A Crystalline Transduction Theory has been put forth to explain the interactive
mechanism of scalar waves with biological systems. Another possibility
is transduction in microtubules dispersed throughout the whole organism.
Tissue culture studies imply that the action of scalars on biological systems
is more than a placebo effect mediated by the brain/mind, such as stress,
moods or beliefs. Stray EM energy in the ambient atmosphere
makes it difficult to study the healing properties of scalar energies in
a clinical setting.
Clinical healing sometimes occurred several months after initial exposure
to the scalar waves. It is known that the brain and body, each the
immune system, communicate bidirectionally. Thus, a direct action
of scalar energy on the body could cause a subsequent change in brain state.
Therefore EEG studies do not indicate whether scalar energy also effects
the body directly or whether the brain and the body are both affected.
Even if scalar energy directly affects individual cells, it may also affect
the mind resulting in an altered psychological outlook which results in
Dr. Michael Persinger (1987) was the first person to test the effects of
scalar energy using isolated cells. The scalar waves were generated
by partially canceling two vortex-type magnetic fields (0.SHz, 10pT) by
intersecting them in the air. The biological endpoint, degranulation
of mast cells, was increased by the scalar fields. Dr. Puharich,
in another study, grew tissue samples of E. Coli, and detected an increased
activity of ubiquitone, a protein involved in DNA repair. These results
indicate that scalar energy can have a direct effect at the subcellular
level as well as a direct effect on the immune system.
Another project detected an effect of scalar energy on neurotransmitter
function, which mimicked the effect of antidepressant medication.
Scalars appear to modulate the basic biochemical communication between
nerve cells mediated by neurotransmitters. Cultured nerve cells called
PC 12 cells were isolated from rats, and the functional properties of noradrenaline
release from PC 12 cells was shown to be increased by a 500Hz monopolar
square wave, and noradrenaline uptake was inhibited by a 15Hz biopolar
square wave, (Rein).
Noradrenaline uptake was chosen because it is directly mediated by the
plasma membrane via an intramembrane protein carrier. The plasma
membrane, with its liquid-crystal structure, is the critical cellular barrier
which interfaces with the chemical and electromagnetic environment.
Since other intramembrane proteins show non-linear properties, the plasma
membrane is a likely target for scalar energy.
The physiological function of carrier mediated neurotransmitter uptake
is to remove excess neurotransmitter from the synaptic cleft after its
release from presynaptic nerves. Thus, inhibiting uptake results
in the accumulation of the neurotransmitter in the synaptic cleft.
This is the mechanism of action of tricyclic antidepressants, since they
inhibit noradrenaline uptake.
Depression is associated with decreased noradrenaline levels. Rein
exposed confluent monolayer culture of PC12 cells to noradrenaline in the
presence or absence of scalar energy. After 30 minutes, the cells
were washed and centrifugedand noradrenaline uptake measured. Overall,
uptake was inhibited by 19.5% in the presence of the scalar field as compared
with the control value obtained in its absence. This is a significant
statistical difference of p 0.01.
Researchers think a wide variety of physiological changes could be created
resulting in improvement of a variety of clinical diseases, only one of
which could be depression. Scalar energy can have a direct effect
on the cell membrane. Researchers want to test whether diseased cells
are preferentially sensitive to scalar energy; and what characterizes its
mechanisms of action.
V. ROSSI’S DREAM-PROTEIN HYPOTHESIS ON HEALING
Ernest Rossi (1999; 2002) has developed a pertinent creativity hypothesis:
“Enriching life experiences that evoke psychobiological arousal with positive
fascination and focused attention during creative moments of art, music,
dance, drama, humor, spirituality, numinosity, awe, joy, expectation, and
social rituals can evoke immediate early gene protein cascades to optimize
brain growth, mindbody communication, and healing.”
“[The] psychotherapeutic approach can contribute to psychobiological
arousal, enrichment and relaxation; it may be possible to help people find
optimal levels of mental stimulation to facilitate actual growth in the
hippocampus of their brain to encode new memory, learning and behavior...optimizing
psychobiological growth and healing.”
Rossi (1999) describes a mind/body communication channel that is pertinent
in that it may describe another way neural plasticity and healing manifests
from REM. He describes how immediate-early genes (also called “Primary
Response Genes” or third messengers) play a central role in the dynamics
of waking, sleeping, dreaming, and mind-body healing at the cellular level.
There is evidence that “immediate-early genes (IEGs) function as mediators
of information transduction between psychological experience, behavioral
states, and gene expression. A wide range of behavioral state-related
gene expression (from relaxation, hynosis and sleep to high arousal, performance,
stress and trauma) culminate in the production of new proteins or homeostasis,
physical and psychosocial adaptation.”
Behavioral states modulate certain patterns of gene expression. Interaction
between the genetic and behavioral levels is a two way street. Genes
and behavior are related in cybernetic loops of mind-body communication.
How does this relate, for example, to manic depression?
A look at the systems related to IEGs, shows that they affect all the systems
disrupted in bipolar disorder. They are expressed continually in
response to hormone messenger molecules mediating processes of adaptation
to extracellular signals and stimuli. Extracellular stimuli come
from the outside environment, including temperature, food, sexual cues,
psychosocial stress, physical trauma, and toxins. IEGs are fundamental
in the sleep-wake cycle, appetite regulation, sexual response, and reactions
to stress, trauma, and toxins (Rossi, 1986; 1999; 2002).
There are persistent alterations in IEG expression in the process of adaptive
behavior on all levels from the sexual and emotional to the cognitive.
They can transduce relatively brief signals from the environment into enduring
changes in the physical structure of the developing nervous system as well
as its plasticity in the form of memory and learning throughout life. If
external cues can modulate cell function through regulation of gene expression,
this could also be true for internal cues.
IEGs are also fundamental in the regulation of REM-on, REM-off neurons,
neuronal networks that are associated with REM sleep and dreaming.
That makes them significant as molecules which can modulate mind, emotions,
learning and behavior. They influence the rhythm of the natural healing
process and circadian and ultradian rhythms of the body, in general.
Ultradian rhythms are those shorter than the 24-hour circadian rhythms
(Rossi; Cheek, 1988).
Milton Erickson discovered that his therapy sessions usually took from
one and a half to two hours to come to natural closure. Later it
was discovered that this delineates the natural work cycle that is harmonious
with our own internal rhythms. IEGs modulate this process.
This ultradian time frame is related to the activation or deactivation
of the expression of specific genes and can occur in a matter of hours
or even minutes.
“Most arousing environmental stimuli that have been studied can induce
immediate-early genes within minutes, their concentrations typically peak
within fifteen to twenty minutes and their effects are usually over within
an hour or two. These time parameter IEG expressions and their ultimate
translation into the formation of new proteins correspond to the parameters
of a complete work cycle of mind-body communication and healing.
The changes in gene transcription and new protein formation initiated in
this time frame, however, can lead to lasting changes in the central nervous
system by converting short term memory to long lasting learning by the
process of long term potentiation. . .the activation or deactivation of
the expression of specific genes can occur in a matter of hours or even
This mechanism assesses the duration and intensity of prior waking and/or
the homeostatic or executive mechanisms that bring about sleep. Sleep deprivation
leads to a wide variety of psychotic and non-psychotic symptoms.
This system is also associated with the neuronal network associated with
the dynamics of REM sleep. Deprivation of REM and dreaming creates
its own phenomenology.
“The study of IEGs indicates that sleep and wake, as well as synchronized
and desynchronized sleep, are characterized by different genomic expressions,
the level of IEGs being high during wake and low during sleep. Such
fluctuation of gene expression is not ubiquitous but occurs in certain
cell populations in the brain. Thus...IEG induction may reveal the
activation of neural networks in different behavioral states. Do
the areas in which IEGs oscillate during sleep and wake subserve specific
roles in the regulation of these physiological states and a general ‘resetting’
of behavioral state? Is gene induction a clue to understanding the
alternation of sleep and wake, and of REM and non-REM sleep?” (Rossi, 1999).
In Rossi’s Dream-Protein Hypothesis, “new experience is encoded by means
of protein synthesis in brain tissue...dreaming is a process of psychophysiological
growth that involves the synthesis or modification of protein structures
in the brain that serve as the organic basis for new developments in the
personality...new proteins are synthesized in some brain structures associated
with REM dream sleep.”
Rossi generalizes the dream-protein hypothesis, “to include all states
of creativity associated with the peak periods of arousal and insight generation
in psychobiologically oriented psychotherapy.”
Enriched internal and external environments leads to the growth and development
of new cells. IEG cascades lead to the formation of new proteins
and neurons along with increased synapses and dendrites that encode memory
and learning. On the other hand, excessive trauma and psychosocial
stress can lead to suppression of growth processes in the brain.
When psychotherapy contributes to arousal, enrichment, and relaxation it
facilitates actual growth in the brain to encode new memory, learning and
behavior, optimizing growth and healing.
“Communication within the neuronal networks of the brain is modulated
by changes in the strengths of synaptic connections...meaning is to be
found in the complex dynamic field of messenger molecules that continually
bathe and contextualize the information of the neuronal networks in ever
changing patterns. Most of the sexual and stress hormones...have
state dependent effects on our mental and emotional states as well as memory
and learning, a constantly changing dynamical field of meaning.” (Rossi,
Novel and enriching psychotherapeutic experiences can lead to neurogenesis
and gene expression which facilitate mindbody communication and can have
a long-term transformative effect on the whole person (Rossi, 2002).
Rossi points out that many of the essential dynamics of gene expression
involved in the formation of the brain and body in embryology are now recognized
as a continuing creative development through an individual's lifetime.
He also asserts that a lack of optimal gene expression and neurogenesis
is associated with psychological depression and stress. Thus, bioholography
has relevant applications for optimizing health and well-being across disciplines,
such as biophysics, medicine, psychobiology, psychotherapy and the holistic
Sidorov (2002) has summarized the thrust of the Gariaev group:
Since the early '90s, Gariaev's team has been developing a new theoretical
and experimentalapproach to the study of genetic material encoding
and expression. In a pioneering paper (Gariaev 2001, JNLRMI), he and his
colleagues challenge the limits of the genetic code triplet model and propose
instead a dual, substance/wave basis for the encoding and expression of
genetic material. The wave-like, non-local aspect of genetic regulation
is recorded at the polarization level of DNA-associated photons, and the
genome is seen as a quasi-hologram of light and radio waves which create
the background necessary for the appropriate expression of genetic material.
The authors argue that the genome emits light and radio-waves whose
delocalized interference patterns create calibration fields (blueprints)
for a system's space-time organization. This holographic-type information
is being constantly and simultaneously read in billions of cells, accounting
for the quick coordinated response typical of living systems.
We can use the observations of the Gariaev group to further summarize the
essence of the human biocomputer:
"Thus, nonlocality can be postulated to be the key factor explaining
the astonishing evolutionary achievement of multicellular biosystems.
This factor says that bioinformatic events, can be instantaneously coordinated,
taking place "here and there simultaneously", and that in such situations
the concept of "cause and effect" loses any sense. This is of a great
importance! The intercellular diffusion of signal substances and
of the nervous process is far too inertial for this purpose. Even
if it is conceded that intercellular transmissions take place electro-magnetically
at light speeds, this would still be insufficient to explain how highly
evolved, highly complex biosystems work in real time."
Gariaev asserts that quantum nonlocality and holography is indispensable
to a proper explanation of such real time working.
"[T]he genes can act as quantum objects, and that, it is the phenomenon
of quantum non-locality/teleportation, that ensures the organism's super
coherency, information super redundancy, super knowledge, cohesion, and,
as a totality or whole, the organism's integrity (viability)."
Quantum Holography defines an admitter/absorber quantum vacuum model of
quantum mechanics in terms of annihilation/creation operators [Schempp,
1993]. This implies that DNA does indeed behave like a single quantum,
which induces a "hole" temporarily in the vacuum by its removal.
This new understanding of biocomputers, constitutes a further step in a
development of computer technology in general. An understanding that
brings about a total change of the constituent basis of that technology
to the figurative semantic (nonlocal) wave computer or biocomputer, based
on DNA memory, and the chromosome apparatus.
Quantum Bioholography says that DNA satisfies the principle of computer
construction, since it carries a copy of itself, its own blueprint, while
the mechanism engineering the DNA replication is the biophotonic electromagnetic
field, while the "letters" of the genetic texts A, G, C, U are held invariant.
The existence of the genetic text constitutes the classical signal process
of quantum teleportation, and facilitates the quantum mechanical signal
processes of both the copying of the DNA as its own blueprint, and of the
construction of the organism in a massively parallel way by means of quantum
