9.30 Controlled Remote Viewing – A Transformational Experience Workshop - Abstract
The term Syntropy combines the Greek words syn (converging) and tropos (tendency) and is used to describe the anti-entropic properties of the backward-in-time solution of the fundamental equations which combine quantum mechanics with special relativity. These equations suggest that there are two tendencies: a diverging forward-in-time tendency governed by the law of entropy and a converging backward-in-time tendency governed by the law of syntropy and retrocausality. The law of syntropy provides a definition of Life Energy which is compatible with the Orgone of Wilhelm Reich, with the Omega Point of Pierre Theilhard de Chardin, with the life energy of Samuel Hahnemann, with Hans Driesch’s entelechy and offers the possibility to translate these hypotheses in testable experiments based on clear assumptions. Syntropy implies the shift towards a new supercausal paradigm which has incredible implications.
The implications of the law of syntropy are well described by Fantappiè in this letter to a friend:
“In the days just before Christmas 1941, as a consequence of conversations with two colleagues, a physicist and a biologist, I was suddenly projected in a new panorama, which radically changed the vision of science and of the Universe which I had inherited from my teachers, and which I had always considered the strong and certain ground on which to base my scientific investigations. Suddenly I saw the possibility of interpreting a wide range of solutions (the anticipated potentials) of the wave equation which can be considered the fundamental law of the Universe. These solutions had been always rejected as “impossible”, but suddenly they appeared “possible”, and they explained a new category of phenomena which I later named “syntropic”, totally different from the entropic ones, of the mechanical, physical and chemical laws, which obey only the principle of classical causation and the law of entropy. Syntropic phenomena, which are instead represented by those strange solutions of the “anticipated potentials”, should obey two opposite principles of finality (moved by a final cause placed in the future, and not by a cause which is placed in the past) and differentiation, and also non-causable in a laboratory. This last characteristic explains why this type of phenomena has never been reproduced in a laboratory, and its finalistic properties justified the refusal among scientists, who accepted without any doubt the assumption that finalism is a “metaphysical” principle, outside Science and Nature. This assumption obstructed the way to a calm investigation of the real existence of this second type of phenomena; an investigation which I accepted to carry out, even though I felt as if I were falling in an abyss, with incredible consequences and conclusions. It suddenly seemed as if the sky were falling apart, or at least the certainties on which mechanical science had based its assumptions. It appeared to me clear that these “syntropic”, finalistic phenomena which lead to differentiation and could not be reproduced in a laboratory, were real, and existed in nature, as I could recognize them in the living systems. The properties of this new law, opened consequences which were just incredible and which could deeply change the biological, medical, psychological, and social sciences.”
The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Ulisse Di Corpo (Ph.D.), Dr. Antonella Vannini (Ph.D.), Dr. Richard Blasband (M.D.) and Dr. Maurizio Paolella (M.D.).
The theory of syntropy states that our reality is divided into a visible part which follows the law of cause and effect and is governed by the law of entropy and an invisible part which follows the law of syntropy. The experience of the invisible reality of syntropy is quite common, for example our subjective feelings, the experience of consciousness and the self. The invisible reality exists objectively also in the physical world. One example is provided by gravity. Suppose we hold a small object like a pencil between our thumb and forefinger and then release it. We observe that it falls to the floor and we say that the force of gravity causes it to fall. But, do we actually see any downward force acting upon the pencil, something pulling or pushing it? Clearly not. We do not observe the force of gravity at all. Rather we deduce the existence of some unseen force (called gravity) acting upon unsupported objects in order to explain their otherwise inexplicable downward movement.
The theory of syntropy states that in order to explain the mysteries and wonders of life it is necessary to accept a new type of causality, which mirrors the classical law of cause and effect. This statement, however, was brought to an end by the fact that using the classical experimental method we fail to devise experiments which would verify the hypotheses relative to the invisible reality of syntropy. The experimental method requires the manipulation of causes and this implies (or at least implied) that it is possible to study only cause and effect relations, in which causes always precede their effects. This requirement has limited science to the visible reality preventing the scientific study of the mysterious qualities of life that do not obey the classical law of cause and effect.
Fortunately in 1843 the economist and philosopher John Stuart Mill formulated the method of concomitant variations which allows to produce scientific knowledge and does not require the manipulation of causes before effects. This method can study together quantitative, qualitative and subjective information, and manages the complexity of natural phenomena.
Since classical causality is governed by the law of entropy, which leads to the increase of disorder and to the dissipation of resources, it is suggested that economic, financial, environmental and social crises which we are now witnessing are a consequence of the fact that science was limited to the classical law of cause and effect which is governed by the law of entropy and leads to the increase of entropy. Therefore, in order to overcome crises, it would be necessary to change the way how we do science and study causality, shifting from the cause and effect paradigm to the supercausal paradigm which is envisioned by the law of syntropy.
This change in paradigm has important implications. For example, it leads to redefine social, economic, social, organizational and productive systems and leads to a profound reformulation of medicine, psychiatry and psychology.
In the "Science of the Subjective" Robert Jahn and Brenda Dunne say:
“Over the greater portion of its long scholarly history, the particular form of human observation, reasoning, and technical deployment we properly term “science” has relied at least as much on subjective experience and inspiration as it has on objective experiments and theories. Only over the past few centuries has subjectivity been progressively excluded from the practice of science, leaving an essentially secular analytical paradigm. Quite recently, however, a compounding constellation of newly inexplicable physical evidence, coupled with a growing scholarly interest in the nature and capability of human consciousness, are beginning to suggest that this sterilization of science may have been excessive and could ultimately limit its epistemological reach and cultural relevance.”
The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Ulisse Di Corpo, Dr. Antonella Vannini, Dr. Richard Blasband and Dr. Maurizio Paolella and will provide examples and tools on how the methodology of concomitances can be used in order to produce scientific works in the field of Life Energies.
This workshop will include instruction and training on Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV), conducted by internationally known CRV practioner and trainer, Dr. Dominique Surel.
What is Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV)?
CRV is a comprehensive and powerful protocol developed by the US military that enables an individual to obtain psychoenergtic perceptions, or specific and accurate non-local information by using the mind. Not many trainers teach the original military CRV protocol which elicits and develops one’s natural psychic skills to a high level of accuracy.
What is Unique About this CRV Workshop?
CRV is usually taught with the sole purpose of learning how to access non-local information. Over years of training and research, Dr. Surel realized that learning CRV can trigger a unique transformational experience when a student realizes that 1/ it is possible to access non local information, and 2/ it is so easy. There is no need to meditate or do any other type of preparation. CRV is learning how to use a part of our brain that we have ignored. With proper guidance, students will learn how to continuously develop that part of the brain and use it in their every day professional and personal lives.
Instead of just teaching the mechanistic aspect of retrieving non-local information, Dr. Surel’s training integrates the personal experiential part of the CRV training. It is an opportunity for skeptics to personally experience the feeling of non-locality and entanglement and to embark on a life-time transformational process.
What Will I Learn?
The original CRV Military Protocol
There are six phases in the Protocol. In one day, students can learn the first three which are enough to access non-local information with accuracy.
1. The critical roles of the conscious, unconscious, and subconscious minds
2. Identify and shut-off the critical voice that interferes with reception of non-local information
3. Develop a language between your unconscious who delivers non-local information and your conscious who will derive meaning
4. Identify and develop that part of the brain that has been ignored by our educational system and society and the unconscious
5. Learn how to integrate its function with your other cognitive skills.
6. Develop and refine your sensories to increase accuracy of reception
Learning the CRV Protocol demands discipline but the rewards are great. Remember that it is the process of learning the Protocol that is even more valuable than the end result of accessing non-local information. It is a transformational process and Dr. Surel encourages students to focus on that aspect of learning.
What Happens After the Workshop?
Once we experience the simplicity of being able to access non-local information, and begin to not just intellectually understand but to feel the meaning of Entanglement, our perception of reality is forever changed. It is oftentimes difficult to discuss this new perception of reality with others who have not had this experienced. CRV students often decide to stay in touch to share their continued experience and transformation. At the end of this training you will be invited to join others from around the world who have taken Dr. Surel’s training by becoming a member of the Energy Medicine University, Stealth Club, based in California. The Club offers practice sessions, professional articles, discussions about CRV and related transformational issues, and general support in doing CRV work. As part of this workshop you will be offered three CRV sessions to do at home and that you can send to Dr. Surel for feedback.

Life as a State of Matter
Abstract. It is interesting to note that a few in the name of science do not distinguish between “the living” and the “non living” as the processes within the “living systems” are governed by the same laws of physics and chemistry that govern the “physical systems”! Many scientists do not have a clear idea of this problem. Hanawalt wrote, “The molecules in the cells are guided by the same basic laws of chemistry and physics that apply throughout the universe … The mystery lies rather in the programmed coordination of the myriad of chemical reactions necessary for metabolic activity of the cells.”

Exploration of General Systems Theory (GST) and Jainism may provide new frontiers of knowledge and evolution.
Abstract. This paper summarized limitations of the scientific methodology and the concept of knowledge which is currently used to study living systems and human systems. It includes limitations caused by Godel’s incompleteness theorems. It is suggested that we need to explore the General Systems Theory (GST) for better understanding of these issues. It is shown that the concept of Jainism that knowledge is structured in the consciousness needs to be examined in the modern context. It is also illustrated that scientific knowledge is just a subset of a much wider concept of knowledge which is structured in the consciousness. Hence it is also mentioned that since knowledge of science has limitations, so ideas about knowledge of consciousness may lead to new frontiers of knowledge not yet recognized in modern science. They lead one to infer that there exist higher dimensions of knowledge including Extra Sensory Perception (ESP) which are not yet properly explored in a systematic way. Some examples are given which shows that the concept of knowledge of consciousness has a great meaning and they can be good examples to be pursued by the scientists. First concerns with remarkable memory of Swamy Vivekanand. Second example concerns with Shatabhdhanies, who demonstrate highly evolved mental faculties through which one can perform hundreds of activities together in a sequence without using any pen and paper. The third provides a quantitative table which indirectly indicates that ancient Jain Acharyas have attempted to estimate the size of the smallest particles of matter and the sizes which they have arrived at are statistically significant and are quite comparable to the sizes of the modern elementary particles of matter. As a consequence of this, it is also mentioned that Darwin’s principle of “Survival of the fittest” should be compared to a wider principle “Live and Let Live” of Jains based on the higher dimensions of knowledge which emphasize more on underlying identify (common soul) among all living beings than differences among them. Finally it is proposed that the process of enlightenment as described in Jainism to achieve the highest state of soul is accompanied by a decrease in rate of entropy production and decrease in resource consumption at every stage. Hence there is a need to talk of some Order parameter like Syntropy.

The coupling of thermodynamics with the dynamics of the H-bonds dissipative potential of water cluster for the overcoming of microscopic reversibility
Abstract. Photophosphorylation studies did not allow detection of reversibility in the absence of un-couplers  , indicating the presence of a restriction to microscopic reversibility. Reconstitution of the architecture of lipid-protein regions within a membrane was shown to be required for the binding of CF1-ATPase . The dynamics of H-bonds on the hydration shells of ATPase were shown capable to modify the catalytic activity of the enzyme . Energy transduction was shown to be mediated by high energy conformational intermediate coupling across coordinative bonding . These were characterized as delocalizing activation energy (Ea) for a vectorial sequencing of transition states   . Prigogine (1947)  proposed that a system with a minimum entropy production, could steadily go down to a minimum were it stays, supporting for a time a steady state. This non-linear probable state refers to perturbations of thermodynamic forces, too small to in-validate a principle of maximum entropy production . A system is closed when a boundary, allows passage of work and heat. The system is open, when matter and energy can pass across the boundary. Phase boundaries could characterize an organismal relationship with its environment. The tendency to reach equilibrium by mass-action of reactants characterizes close systems, in which a single peak for Ea, allows microscopic reversibility. However, an open system is required to support a steady state conformational turnover of the protein. The uptake of metabolite is mediated by an air phase boundary, allowing uptake of O2 and release of CO2 and Heat. Hence, the need to discern for vectorial systems a mechanism, which could prevents microscopic reversibility from entangling the directionality of processes lead to analyze Hb in function of multiple-equilibrium including (H2O)n. Open systems couple the continuous entrance of S and its P exit, with a dissipative potential –DG to operate at far from the system final thermodynamic equilibrium . However, the overcoming of microscopic reversibility requires the integration of thermal and water dynamics, acting over the asymmetric reactive tendencies of Hb, under low vs. high pO2. In a asymmetrically structured system an energy dissipative potential spread by coupling, between several transitions states could restrict reversibility. In deoxyHb, the sliding of the a- vs b-chains move a Pro 44 into blocking the entrance of fully hydrated [Mg(H2O)6](H2O)12, but allows the exclusion of [Mg(H2O)inc]2+ and (H2O)n* . The mechanism could differentiate between two forms of the same molecule by its size and the energy contained in “n” H-bonds. Maxwell implicated the capability to decrease entropy as a mechanism separating molecules by their difference in energy contained, between their heated vs cooled states. The model does not exclude an overall thermodynamics with the dissipative potential of O2 and metabolites uptake with CO2 releases out of the system, for entropy exclusion. However, but shows that thermodynamics by itself could not generate the intermediate states of coupling, which prevent microscopic reversibility. The latter, is supported by a chain of complexes formation couple with the source of free energy of the dynamics in the decrease of water clustering state, thus increasing entropy in the organismal expelled water .

Parallels to Syntropy and Resonance in Jungian Psychology and Rosen Method Body Work Applied to the Treatment of Individual and Collective Trauma: Theory and Methods and an In Vivo Experiment
Abstract. Despite the acknowledgement from the American Psychologist Association and other professional bodies that highly stressful and traumatic events, especially in childhood, can hugely inhibit and/or damage the psyches, somas and energy/spirits and despite living in increasingly individual and collective trauma-inducing events, there is a lack of a holistic theoretical and applicable paradigm that might ameliorate the perceived separation between scientific and religio-spiritual understandings of matter/energy or body/mind/spirit as well as encourage professionals and lay persons to develop their own methods to promote collective world consciousness that may be a means of healing the anima mundi or world soul as C. G. Jung termed it. Especially non-religious or spiritually-oriented practitioners and lay persons are often unaware that traumatic events can create negative images of God or the transpersonal realm and inhibit openness to its individual and collective transformational potential. Methodology: The concepts and techniques of Analytic Psychology, i.e. synchronicity and active imagination--and Rosen Method Body Work, i.e. psycho-somatic-spiritual awareness through attention, intention and touch and their parallels with syntropy and resonance will be applied experientially by those attendees who chose to participate. Results: The participants and observers of the experiment at this lecture will present their findings of their individual and collective experiences and discuss the implications. Implications: The lecture and experiment could enlarge the participantsʼ view of mind/body dynamics as an important field of further inquiry and research; acquaint them with the research on the impact of the stress of traumatic experiences on all aspects of human functioning from the womb to maturity and thus encourage conversations with those who have no understandings from either a scientific or psycho-spiritual perspective of the non-duality of matter/energy or body/mind/spirit; challenge them to join in the raising of all human consciousness via their own inner world exploration as well as outer world action and encourage them to engage in creating a collective energy field of human consciousness in meaningful and impactful ways.

Syntropy and entropy are i.a. fundamental properties of biological systems and this paper concerns dietary intervention issues related to cardiovascular disease and endocrine cancer such as the breast and prostate. This group has advocated a return to the notional Palæolithic diet with fruits, vegetables, roots, leaves, seeds, etc. which have a low w-6/w-3 ratio of fatty acids, high monounsaturated fatty acids, fibre, phytochemical antioxidants and proteins. It is probable that the human genome of today existed in Palaeolithic (Pliocene /Pleistocene) times, the major differences being the interaction of Nature’s environment on gene regulatory mechanisms, e.g. gracilization and brain size. The increase in brain size may be due to increased essential fatty acids such as the brain-abundant ω-3 docosahexaenoic (DHA) and eicosahexaenoic and the ω-6 arachidonic acids: DHA is important, i.a. for good mental health. The Tsim Tsoum Concept is the Western evidence-based approach to the Eastern observation-based YinYang Concept that humans (memes) interact with Nature (genes) in mutually influencing ways, yet both memes and genes pursue their independent evolutionary thrust at their own pace leading to, if unbalanced, conflicts of health-interest. This leads to ever more stress-strain psychosomatic states that must be accommodated at tissue level or else increased morbidity will ensue. Phytoestrogens, viz. lignans, isoflavonoids and flavonoids are weak oestrogenic constituents of such a diet and may have a considerable impact on human health and disease. Thus, flavonoids, food restriction, and i.a. omega-3 fatty acids may exert epigenetic changes that produce phenotypes for disease such as cancer, cardiovascular, and many other diseases. The regulation of these marks and subsequent transcription may involve the now well-known DNA methylation, post-translational histone modifications, and ncRNAs (non-coding RNAs). The ability of a DNA sequence or transcript to regulate the expression of one or more genes on the same chromosome (cis) or different chromosomes, or mature RNAs in the cytoplasm (trans), is extremely important in the development of the placenta and foetus. These regulatory mechanisms serve to express imprinted (parent-of-origin specific) and non-imprinted genes which leads to placental development in such a way that might adversely affect the health of the foetus, and/or mother, in both short- and long-term. These evolutionary, epigenetic and dietary intervention issues will be discussed.

Listening by listening
In History, often, music has been characterized by its function: Religious music, Chamber Music, Concert music. The music I propose today also has a function: to make people feel part of the sound environment in which we exist. My music is not intended to be listened to as the protagonist, like in a concert situation; rather it becomes part of a complex event in which the music is only part of the whole like all things: trees, people, scents, colors etc. – the idea is that the music connects things. I propose entering into a relationship with the music, that one considers it as not simply in front of us, but that we are the music, that we ourselves create the work by being active participants, by listening.
Bio. Dr. Richard A. Blasband is a board-certified psychiatrist who received his medical training at the Medical School of the University of Pennsylvania and the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University Medical School, where he served on faculty. Following his formal medical training Dr. Blasband studied orgonomic medicine with Dr. Elsworth Baker, who was appointed by Wilhelm Reich to train physicians in his therapeutic discipline, psychiatric orgone therapy. With Dr. Baker and other students of Dr. Baker, Dr. Blasband helped create the American College of Orgonomy to preserve and develop Reich’s concepts and therapeutic practice. During this period he published over 60 original papers and reviews on various aspects of orgonomic theory and practice including weather control. Regarding orgonomic weather control he has been active for over 50 years having conducted operations in several regions of the U.S. and Israel. In 1954 He briefly studied orgonomic biophysics at Reich’s laboratory in Rangeley, Maine. Upon moving to the San Francisco Bay area of California in the early 1990s Dr. Blasband created the Center for Functional Research, whose mission is to conduct research in orgonomic biophysics and explore the interface between consciousness and life energy. At about this same time he became informally associated with the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory at Princeton University under the direction of Princeton Dean, Robert Jahn and Brenda Dunne. He has continued this association as a member of the International Consciousness Research Laboratories. During this period he discovered a significant relationship between the expression of emotions of patients in therapy and the output of a non-local random event generator. This study was published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration. In 1992 Dr. Blasband became a student of Nicolai Levashov, a master healer and theoretical physicist, who had moved to San Francisco from Russia, and was conducting a practice in healing by conscious intention utilizing methods that he had discovered through the application of the scientific method to understanding his natural talents as a healer and clairvoyant. Upon learning the method, Dr. Blasband added mental healing intention to his therapeutic practice, and, in addition applied it to the treatment of somatic disorders. Dr. Blasband currently lives in Sausalito, California where he conducts a private practice in psychiatric orgone therapy and healing, serves as Research Director of the Center for Functional Research, as a vice-president of WISE, and president of Exceptional Services and Technology, Inc., a for-profit organization to bring practices such as Atmospheric Energetic Engineering, Healing by Mental Intention, Controlled Remote Viewing, and Radiesthesia into the domains of industry and commerce.
A Functional View of the Concept of Life Energy
The concept of a life energy or life force that animates life has been with us since antiquity in the Chinese concept of “chi”, and the East Indian concept of “prana”. In pre-modern times Aristotle thought that it was necessary in understanding the origin of life. He asked, “Why cannot the seed at its origin be so created, that it can turn into blood and flesh without itself having to be blood and flesh?” and "How do these parts come into being: does the one form the other or do they simply arise one after the other?" His answer was the soul. "The soul cannot exist without a body, yet it is not the body but rather something inherent in the body." It is, "..the principle of all things living". " If the eyes were a living being, then eyesight would be its soul, this being the substance as notion or form of the eye; and the eye would be the matter of the eyesight". Aristotle maintained that the mere stuff or matter is not yet the real thing; it needs a certain form or essence or function to complete it. Matter and form, however, are never separated; they can only be distinguished. Thus, in the case of a living organism, for example, the sheer matter of the organism (viewed only as a synthesis of inorganic substances) can be distinguished from a certain form or function or inner activity, without which it would not be a living organism at all; and this “soul” or “vital function” is what Aristotle in his De anima (On the Soul ) called the entelechy (or first entelechy) of the living organism. Aristotle’s assertions held sway until well into the 17 and 18th centuries.
In the pre-modern era, prominent physicians and scientists such as Harvey, Stahl, Wolff, and Blumenbach wrestled with the concepts and tried to find solutions to the prevailing problems of the origin of life, conception, evolution, and biological development. A variety of terms were created to explain these events, including “phlogiston” and “vis essentialis” and “vita propria”, which Blumenbach maintained established the specific vital activity of the systemic parts of the living organism. According to Hans Dreisch, who wrote a scholarly book on the subject, Blumenbach’s contribution was the only one of the pre-moderns who made significant step in our understanding of the subject since Aristotle. Indeed, it was the first to establish what we consider as modern physiology.
From a purely philosophical point of view Kant, Schopenhauer, Bergson, Schelling, and Hegel had much to say on the subject of vitalism as it was so intrinsically part of the structure of human thought as an explanatory principle in understanding life. Their thought was bound up with notions of “energy”, “autonomy of life’, teleology, intention, determinism, and the “soul”, and, inevitably, their influence on what became mechanistic principles of development and movement. It was difficult to wrestle with the concepts and their interrelationship. Indeed, according to Dreisch, many critiques, of the concept of vitalism, such as those of Bernard, when examined in detail reveal themselves to be essentially vitalistic in nature.
The advent of Galileo’s (mid 1500s to mid-1600’s) work wrought major changes in how conceive of ourselves and our universe. He championed a quantitative, analytic view of natural processes which dominates most scientific thought to the present time. In essence he and those devoted to mathematical physics found nature to be a process whereby exclusively mechanical principles were at work. This included, of course, the theory of life. The appeal of mechanism was that much could be done with it both theoretically and practically. Little could be done with so called “vitalistic theories. It began to wither on the vine.
Not all, however, succumbed to mechanism as a final explanatory principle.
The chemist, Justin Liebig, (1803-1873), unable to satisfy his understanding of life through strictly mechanistic principles was a prominent vitalist, maintaining that a “fourth cause”..” is found only in living beings which dominates the forces of cohesion and combines the elements in new forms so that they gain new qualities…”
And, as we come deeper into the modern era we find the work of the French physiologist, Claude Bernard, who died in 1878, who maintained that the growth of individual forms was a function of the “whole” whose laws are initially dormant and then activated with growth and development.
Darwinian evolution to the present day is dependent upon mechanistic thinking. Lamark, offered an alternative, more functional view, but it never gained traction in science until just recently where we find an interest in his concepts based on experimentation.
The decline of vitalism during the period just described had an interesting parallel in the development of laws of human behavior, psychology. Psychology and biology, being so intertwined, the doctrine of psychophysical parallelism flourished contemporaneously with materialistic science at this time. Human action was thus also subordinated to the general materialism; any natural event was a mechanical event. A “soul” or its equivalent is not an element in the causality of nature.
Underground, vitalism survived through to the present time despite the overwhelming publication of papers and books in the scientific media based upon mechanistic principle. The names of the vitalists are many and their efforts to survive valiant. They began to enter the experimental field with the demonstration of alleged life energies by Mesmer (vital fluid) and von Reichenbach (Od), but it was not until the work of Wilhelm Reich that experimental evidence of a life force manifesting in so many varying domains of nature that one felt that a true and deep breakthrough had taken place. His findings will be described in the presentation.

The book “The Dance of Life” will be presented with a focus on Life Energy and Non Duality. The following films made in India will be shown:
NETI NETI - Directed by Filippo Carli, Documentary – 21 mins.
Neti Neti is a Sanskrit term used to define divinity, literally meaning: "Not this, Not that". This short meditative film, shot in southern India, is grounded in a simple question: What is beauty? But there are many other questions implied: Why in a poor place like India is beauty so strongly expressed? And why in present western cultures, did we lose our beauty? This film is a journey through the villages and the temples of a country where the lives of the people are close to the holy present.
NATARAJA – Directed by Filippo Carli – 25 mins.
Nataraja (The Dance of Life). Nataraja is the natural follow-up and closing of a process that began with Neti Neti. Neti Neti represented the spiritual journey, the search for what is perceived absent and towards which we move. Nataraja is instead the arrival to what has been found and is more static. And precisely in this static starts the dance of life.
Richard A. Blasband, M.D. & Dominique Surel, Ph.D.
In June of 2013 near the town of Evergreen, Co in the U.S. members of WISE conducted an atmospheric weather research and training event using the Wilhelm Reich "cloud buster", which we call an Atmospheric Energy Engineering Device or AEED.
Attending were Dr. Dominique Surel, our crew chief, Philip Catalano, three crew members, and Dr. Richard Blasband, who was in charge of the operation.
The AEED consisted of 8, ten-foot long 1/1/2 inch diameter metal tubes mounted on a platform that permitted tilting the tube array toward overhead and movement of 270 degrees horizontally. The tubes were connected via hollow metal cables to freely flowing water in the creek close to our site of operations in a state park. This well- satisfied the minimal conditions necessary for successful operations in the use of the device as described by Wilhelm Reich. According to Reich the AEED works by “drawing” energy from the atmosphere thus facilitating the dissipation or growth of clouds depending upon where it is pointed. Our experience over 50 years of work with the device demonstrates that the proper use of the AEED can disperse pollution and fog and generate large-scale storms in the event of prolonged drought.
Since this was a new locale for experimentation our goal was to test the device by observing local cloud destruction and to follow downstream effects over the next several days.
Dr. Surel is a highly experienced radiesthetist, one who can utilize a pendulum to access and measure the extent, intensity and quality of what are most often known today as "subtle energy fields".
Since we knew by direct perception that proximity to the device caused "excitation" of the skin and internal organs and visually of an "aura" seen at the periphery of the tubes it was reasonable to hypothesize that an "energy field" was induced around the AEED by virtue of a flow of energy from the atmosphere through the tubes to the streaming water. This field effect was confirmed by Dr. Surel's pendulum measurements. The extent of the field was established by wooden stakes put into the ground at those points where Dr. Surel first encountered the field when approaching the AEED from a distance.
Still and video footage were taken during the operation. They will be shown as part of the presentation.
The ability to access quantity and quality of excitation via radiesthesia opens up this energetic means of weather control to a new level of experimental exploration.

Syntropic Economic Theory and Solution of the Global Crisis
Abstract. Solution to the current global crisis is undoubtedly linked to the creation of new economic theories that would allow the transition to a new model of sustainable development of civilization. Nowadays we are witnessing a failure of economic theory that has been dominant for the period of the industrial age. The economy was seen as a mechanism and the economic theories were in this way adapted. In the information age economy works as an organism. In living organisms entropic processes that are associated with the past are balanced with syntropic processes that are focused on the future. Syntropy must therefore be the central concept of economic theory in which the economy is viewed as a living organism. Syntropic economic theory has the potential to become a dominant and defining for the formulation of policies and strategies that allow overcoming the current global crisis. The economy as an organism, the economy as anticipatory system and a new understanding of wealth and its role in society will be dominant in the creation of the theory of syntropic economics. Economic theory therefore awaits big paradigm leap that changed fundamentally the current form of human society and civilization.

Knowledge Creating Conversations: Endlessly unfolding inquiries of discovery and invention
Abstract. The focus is the experience of making an original contribution to knowledge. Staff and student colleagues work together linking conversations, supervisory relationships, community participation, courses, seminars and conferences, warranted understandings, empirical data collection and self-evident proofs to craft feedback and associations into personal quests for originality. Knowledge creating conversations revise the fluctuating boundaries of warranted argumentation in intergradient educational discourse: the framework for endlessly unfolding inquiries of discovery and invention. Fusing action research, design science, ethnography and grounded theory, doctoral school learning environments are investigated from January 2000 to the present. The purpose of the inquiry is to develop The Arts–Science–Education–In–Performance (ASEIP) Model. Eight community projects, 55 colleague interviews, 10 supervisory relationships and 40 ASEIP demonstrations scaffold engagements with authority.
This leads to the focusing hypothesis: in knowledge creating experiments, individuals triangulate new forms of educational experience to investigate self-common-subject knowledge. And inspires the research question: why do learners open conversations to conceptualise educational entanglements? Learning encounters generate collaborative learning relationships. Experience, process and form converge with content and context in the cosmic–world–body lab-stage classroom. The universal learner-self enacts sequential learning links to convert episodic evidentiary events into quests for originality. Learning encounters complete metamorphic learning loops nurturing individual and community wellbeing. Learners’ research journeys are recorded in dramaturgic docu-studies. Learning emerges when staff and student colleagues share ownership of research activities. Reciprocal understandings successively approximate individual and collective contributions to knowledge.
The research project engages humanistic pedagogy that grounds and foregrounds the knowledge creating experience, not in order to make colleagues agree but to enable communication with each other. Spontaneous interactions produce subsequent frames and framings of time and space, one nested within the other. Learners practice freedom when they make original contributions to knowledge. The experience comes into conflict with perceived understandings of mainstream educational practice as a reified mode. The error is to treat controlling situations as the real thing: over investing in competitive environments because that is what is occurring in the classroom. The research outcomes are based on learning relativity, intergradient education and nine universal elements of education accessible to learners of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and conditions: self-expression, experience experiments and memoir stories; spiralling events, spontaneous creativity and continuing quests; universal languages, learner relationships and learning activities.
Retaining hierarchies of authority and advantage, dogma, disaffection, bias and marginalizing inequalities colonise academe, the workplace and society. Fusing formal and informal educational cultures, The Arts–Science–Education–In–Performance Model counteracts constraints. All participants in mainstream education are respondents to authority. Activating the mostly untried, and untested, universal learner-self, enlightened Renaissance persons coalesce nature, human nature and humankind enabling the next stage of human development. Recommendations:
1. Engage spontaneous–authentic–original and mimicry–mastery learning encounters
2. Access learner physical–mental–emotional–spiritual awareness–quests–processes
3. Enfranchise humanistic, collaborative–conversational–creative competencies
4. Develop agency– authority–autonomy entitlements in academe–workplace–society
5. Constitute individual–collective–international trans-disciplinary research projects
Bio: My original training was as a marine biologist, but over the last 2 decades I have investigated a range of practices which apply vital energy for different purposes. Included here are Pranic Healing which seeks to examine the human energy body, and dowsing. As described in this paper, I have used dowsing to investigate the level of vital energy incorporated in our means of expressing concepts, notably our vocabulary. My main publications on the subject of vital energy are: ‘A Return to Subjectivity’ by Trafford Press, and ‘Hidden in the Words’ by Authorhouse which describes the dowsing approach I used in preparing this paper. Other writings can be found in my blog: ‘Gaia and my Subconscious mind’, including my broad range of interests incorporating the Arts and Sciences.
The Huna philosophy and ‘Objective Observations’
Abstract. The perspective offered by Max Freedom Long on the ancient Hawaiian philosophy referred to as ‘Huna’ suggests that some apparently ‘subjective’ phenomena resulting from self-observation of the outputs of ‘subconscious’ perception are largely objective. The Huna philosophy views the conscious mind as receiving inputs from the subconscious, where both are regarded as separate ‘souls’ or psychic entities resident in the physical body, with occasional inputs from a superconscious mind, considered as usually external to the body. The relevance of this interpretation of reality is that outputs revealed by dowsing or divination arrive via the subconscious. They are not perceived directly by the conscious mind, but deduced from the behavior of a dowsing wand governed by the subconscious. The only characteristic of outputs observed post-hoc by the conscious mind is their intensity; this is determined by counting the number of rotations of a dowsing wand. A similar methodology applies where it is desired to measure the intensity of an external ESP stimulus detected by the subconscious mind. A few examples of the use of this conceptual framework for recovering subconscious inputs, or incoming sensory impressions from the external world unavailable to the conscious mind, are presented. Examples cited include evaluations of the intensity of the signal associated with words and concepts, and measuring the strength of ground and sky energy flows.

The Physical Teleology of Syntropic Interaction:
An Experimentally Testable Anthropic Cosmology
Abstract. The Cognitive model Mind = Brain is grossly incorrect. The alternative chosen is an extended form of Eccles-Cartesian interactive dualism with a physically real Cartesian "mind stuff" (that does not violate the laws of thermodynamics or conservation of energy) that interacts with "body stuff". We equate the required 'life principle' with the unified field of physics or if preferred the ubiquitous spirit of God represented as the 3rd regime in the progression Classical - Quantum - Unified Field Mechanics. This noetic paradigm is empirically testable. We now have 14 experimental protocols to falsify the model. We will discuss details of the physical cosmology of the unified theory creating an ‘Empirical Metaphysics’ by integrating science and theology and outline the empirical tests. We believe the ancient mind-body problem has now been solved.

String Theory with a New Interpretation Can Model the Mind
Abstract. String theory is presented in simple terms with existing and new interpretations. It is explained how the new interpretations allows string theory to model two parallel universes in addition to our known universe and why dark matter and dark energy can be seen as influence from matter in the parallel universes and why there is no other interaction between the parallel universes and our known universe. A conception of the mind which is compatible with modern psychology and introspection is presented. It is explained how the parallel universes could provide what we observe as the mind.
String theory is an advanced mathematical framework that transforms an input assumption to output statements. The input assumption is: elementary particles are one-dimensional vibrating strings rather than point like entities with no extension. Quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity are embedded into the mathematical framework. Some of the output statements are verified mathematical models of all known elementary particles and forces. Additional statements are non-verified requirements to the observable cosmos such as requirements for extra dimensions, extra particles and entities called ‘branes’. The non-verified output statements have been interpreted in various ways in order to enable confirmation by the real observed universe. Missing compatibility between the statements and the observed universe has reduced the popularity of string theory as a potential ‘theory of everything’. This article provides a new interpretation of the nonverified requirements that lets string theory use the concept of branes and the extra dimensions and the extra particles to model the mind as an entity separate and different from the ‘physical’ universe but as a part of what is labelled ‘cosmos’.
We have no agreed understanding of what the mind really is. This article uses a description of the mind which is compatible with modern psychology and introspection.
Even if the mathematics of string theory is extremely complicated, the results of the calculations can be explained in simple terms for the general public  . Strings can either be open such as a violin string or closed such as a necklace. The mathematical equations require the strings to vibrate in nine independent directions. We have only three independent directions (spatial dimensions) in our universe. The normal interpretation used to satisfy the requirement for the extra spatial dimensions is that the extra dimensions are curled up to such a small size that verification by measurements is not possible. The curling-up of dimensions can be done in extremely many different ways, each way giving a different string theory, creating a ‘string theory landscape’. Such an interpretation is not maintained in this article.
Ends of open strings must hang on to something. This something is called a ‘brane’ which can be an entity having any number of dimensions up to ten. Our universe is suggested to be a three dimensional brane. The gravity force is modelled as a ring shaped string. It is not connected to any brane and can wander between different branes. This means that gravity can act between matter particles in different branes. All other known elementary particles and forces are modelled as open strings. Both ends of these strings are connected to our brane/universe, but they must vibrate into other dimensions which could be part of other branes. Different branes have different laws of physics since they do not have the same elementary particles that implement matter and force. We cannot measure electromagnetic radiation coming from matter in other branes. The electromagnetic force might also not exist in other branes. When physical objects bounce, it is the
electromagnetic force that repels the objects. This means that matter from other branes will not interact or collide with physical matter, except for gravity that can attract matter in different branes to each other. [1 p388 etc] The author’s conclusion is that string theory is capable of modelling two extra parallel three-dimensional universes that can be all around us without us being able to measure the presence of their content by other means than by gravitational attraction.
Supersymmetry is incorporated to string theory and introduce a requirement for one and maybe two extra sets of particles that have not been discovered in real life. [3 p166] The author’s conclusion is that these sets of particles could exist in two different parallel universes (branes) such as explained above. The spatial dimensions of the two parallel ‘non-physical’ universes can also be non-physical, i. e. distance in those universes must be measured by something that is different from metres or inches; which means that cosmos is a true 9-dimensional entity and the string theory’s requirement for 9 spatial dimensions is satisfied. The extra dimensions do not need to be curled up and there is only one solution to the string theory landscape. The two extra parallel universes could model what we perceive as the mind, explained below.
In order to verify the conclusion with an experiment, we could see if the universe contains huge amounts of gravitating matter that do not interact with physical matter in other ways and do not emit electromagnetic radiation. This measurement has already been performed and the author’s conclusion is confirmed. Dark matter and dark energy could be matter existing in two parallel universes that are labelled ‘non-physical’. The existence of dark matter and dark energy can be seen as the first experimental confirmation of string theory.
The 11th dimension of string theory (M-theory) is in the popular scientific literature depicted as a spatial dimension, but it is really expected to be a ‘coupling strength’ . If the mind is a part of the cosmos such as this article suggests, then we could say that cosmic dimensions define degrees of freedom for the attention. Attention can be directed to different spatial positions and it flows with time. An 11th dimension could be the speed of time since the speed of time can vary considerably in different states of mind. If the mind functions as a video recorder with a series of still images then the sampling time of the mind, the duration of each still image, could be a time-like dimension that gives the speed of time and also depicts how strongly the attention of the observer is connected to the cosmos. Short sampling time gives slow speed of time, strong coupling and a small scale view, while long sampling time gives fast speed of time, loose coupling and a large scale view. The coupling strength required by M-theory could be interpreted as ‘speed of time’. This interpretation is not yet verified mathematically.
If the mind constitutes two branes that are different and separate from the physical universe where our body including the brain is placed, then there is a question of how the communication between the mind and the body takes place. Only closed strings can carry this information. The gravity force between two particles can become very strong when distance approaches zero. A physical particle and a non-physical particle can occupy the same space, so they can snap together, being held together by the gravity force. A mental force is then capable of exerting a force on a physical particle via the non-physical particle. This is a fairly primitive information transfer, but it can probably cause genes to switch on and off depending on mental state and induce emotions to the body (emotions are sensed as if they sit in the muscles). A fifth force modelled by a circular string is hypothesized. It should have some interaction with or resemblance with electromagnetic force so that information exchange between the brain and the mind can take place seamlessly both ways. The alleged aura associated to plants and animals could indicate such a force. This force must be very feeble such as gravity is much weaker than the other forces. Our instruments could just have missed its influence.
The description of the mind below makes the above interpretation of string theory a perfect match as a ‘theory of everything’.
A conception of the mind
The mind is what we observe when we shut our eyes and perform introspection. Thoughts, images and emotions come and go. They are stored in the mind and we can direct our attention to different content. Neurologists know which parts of the brain are active when storing and retrieving memories but they never found any kind of imprint of the memory that can be retrieved. Some neurologists hope to find ‘traces’ in the brain made by the memories. Based on introspective work with Acem meditation  the author concluded that the mind must be a real entity independent and separate from the brain and it must store all kinds of psychological content. We can relate to this content with different psychological capabilities such as directing our attention, suppressing content or allowing content into our awareness, holding on to content or letting content go from our attention.
Human minds are mostly individual, but content also seems to be accessible by other persons such as in telepathy. If you shut your eyes and direct your attention inwards, you are aware of a psychological universe and it is the same universe for all persons and animals. The outer physical universe contains trees, mountains, suns and galaxies; the psychological universe contains among other things psychological residues. Each residue is a container for emotions, memories, images, values, self images and a world-view representing a certain situation or psychological complex. Some residues are strongly emotionally charged such as traumas and some are neutral such as plain memories. When our attention comes close to a residue, the charge will tend to hold our attention and the content will pour into our conscious awareness or unwittingly influence us in different ways. The distance in the psychological universe is measured by emotional distance. Emotionally connected residues are close to each other. The thoughts and emotions of our loved ones are also close to us in this universe.
A second inner universe could exist where the mind is very still and the sense of time is not present, or is at least different. You can come into contact with this in precious moments, such as when you are in front of a fireplace or hiking in the mountains. Thoughts in this universe are non-phenomenological; they can contain a ‘fragrance’ of all sorts of things without being specific. All possibilities are present at once. We could call this the intuitional universe. After grasping an intuitive thought, you can sometimes use days, weeks or months to shape it into a specific theory, piece of art, product or way of behaviour. We can say that an intuitive thought collapses into a specific incarnation in time and space. For another person at another time, the same thought could collapse into a very different incarnation, but it would express the same basic quality or insight when related to its time and place.
The personality is a structure of the mind that is part of this intuitional universe. Two persons with a ‘good chemistry’ feel close even if they are not physically close or emotionally close. Their personalities are close in the intuitional universe. Separation is measured as a kind of quality difference which is the measure of distance in the intuitional universe. Structures of the intuitional universe have a great resemblance with quantum mechanical waves. The intuitional universe could be seen as a quantum mechanical universe. The speed of time has not been very interesting for scientists. For contemplative oriented persons in the eastern traditions, speed of time has always been a very essential feature that says something about the state of the mind. A state of mind where time passes very fast is called samadhi. It is often experienced that time passes faster in meditation than during normal wake state. Time passing slowly like in a slow motion film can be experienced during very strong concentration such as for soldiers during an assault. Some kinds of meditation facilitate a state of mind that is the opposite of concentration, a free open mental attitude. Level of concentration which is the coupling strength of the mind could give the speed of time and scope of view. These are the main issues when looking at string theory as a theory of everything which is including both the physical and the mental worlds. A deeper and wider discussion is published in a book  and also as a scientific article . Information is available at www.amatterofmind.net.

Bio. I am a Slovak citizen born in 1954. I finished my Ph.D. study of economic cybernetics at Moscow Institute of Management. "What is an elementary structural unit of the Universe (matter, space, energy) and its Unity principle?" I decided that in any case I have to discover the answer to these questions. Informatics as a part of cybernetics shows that all information is created by combination of two states represented by two digits 0 and 1. So, in order to construct the composite structure, the necessary and sufficient condition is to have two different states. The search forced me not only to limit my interest on cybernetics but also pay attention to philosophy. Hegel´s dialectical logic helped me to discover the bipolar essence of matter. By in depth study of this philosophy I was able to gradually find the answers to the basic questions of physics and philosophy.
The Unity Principle
Abstract. The great desire of Man is to find the sense of his life and the true knowledge of existence. The reality looks like disintegrated into many different and independent spheres, but we feel that a great variety of existing forms should have the common basis. Many philosophers and scientists have correctly expressed the Unity principle by the sentence: “Everything is connected with everything else”, but nobody has discovered its essence. Using a dialectical logic I have discovered the exact mechanism of the Unity principle and the basic constituent of the Universe, according to which everything is made of bipolar relations “+/-“, that I named elementary quantum dipoles (connections), where every “+” pole is connected with all “-“ and reciprocally. The mutual attraction and repulsion of opposites is the source of motion = energy. It is shown briefly how the Universe works at its micro and macro levels. On the basis of the Unity principle I have built new fundamentals for particle physics as well as cosmology presented in my scientific papers and my monograph “God and the Universe”.
The Universe is a network of non-local quantum connections and “perceives” all its parts in itself. Thanks to the Unity principle the Universe as a whole represents a self-reflecting (self-mirroring) self-closed Unity of the highest complexity created of the simplest bipolar relations (+/-). Self-reflection means the life. The very high level of self-reflection (life) is known as self-consciousness - “I am and I will”. The level of self-reflection (life – consciousness) is given by the level of the system complexity, the higher the complexity of self-closed and self-reflecting system – the higher the level of self-reflection (consciousness). The Universe as a whole in its Unity represents the highest level of complexity with the highest level of self-reflection = self-consciousness = personal GOD = “I AM and I WILL”. Man with his spiritual soul represents a hierarchical system of very high complexity, so his self-reflection achieves the level of self-consciousness (“I am”).
The consciousness is impossible without direct non-local quantum connections of everything with everything allowing the self-reflection (consciousness) of complex hierarchical self-closed quantum structures – living organisms including our immortal spiritual souls.

Bio. Robert O. Williams, inventor and developer of Sympathetic Resonance Technology™, (SRT™), is the co-founder of Clarus Transphase Scientific, Inc., an innovative technology company based in California. As an expert in the study of subtle energy engineering and its effect on physical systems, Robert’s research has provided scientific breakthroughs in field-based technologies, consciousness, and human potential. In addition to being an inventor, Robert has also enjoyed success as a musician and educator. He has taught music at the university level, and has recorded and performed with such artists as The Beach Boys, Paul Horn, and Charles Lloyd. In 1978, after a decade in the music industry, he served as Executive Director for LoveSongs Productions, Inc., a motion picture and recording production company owned by Michael Love of The Beach Boys. The direction of Robert’s life and career changed in 1979, when he had a near-death experience. From that point on, he devoted all of his time and energy towards researching consciousness and subtle energy, along with conventional physics and medicine. Since then he has worked with prominent scientists including Professor William Tiller at Stanford University, Professor Beverly Rubik from the University of California at Berkeley, Professor Rustum Roy at Pennsylvania State University, Department of Materials Sciences, and Professor Stuart Krassner, Department of Biology, at the University of California, Irvine. Robert’s research was published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine and the Journal of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine. He has also been a guest lecturer several times at the University of California at Irvine and the Tai Sophia College of Alternative Medicine in Maryland. In 2005, Robert was chosen by author Lynne McTaggart to speak at the first “Living the Field” Conference in London, England on Field Based Technologies. Another noteworthy speaking engagement was at 2009’s Science of Whole Person Healing Conference hosted by Professor Rustum Roy and Dr. Robert Duggan. Robert is currently furthering his research of SRT™ and field-based technologies and is CEO of Clarus Products International, Inc., manufacturer of Q-Link® products.
Sympathetic Resonance Technology (SRTTM)
Abstract. Robert O. Williams has made a fundamental discovery in field-based technology called Sympathetic Resonance Technology (SRT™). He began his research in 1979 in Santa Barbara, California. SRT™ has achieved significant results in the reduction of disruptive influences (noise) - which inhibit the dynamic potential of organic and inorganic systems - by creating more efficient communication between “physical mass” (v<c) and its “non-physical field based” counterpart (v>c). SRT™ utilizes only those specific frequencies that “clarify” or enhance the v<c ~ v>c connection because they have integral and system enhancing functionality for a particular physical system. With research spanning over 30 years and several continents, SRT™ has been tested by renowned scientists and incorporated into various applications including, but not limited to:
- Humans and animals for optimal wellness
- Water for super hydration, cell permeability, and increased vitality
- Agriculture for higher crop yields
- Inorganic raw materials
- Subtle energy devices and consumer products to lessen the effects of harmful environmental influences such as electromagnetic fields, and overall stress reduction
Specifically regarding materials, studies performed at Pennsylvania State University under the supervision of Professor Rustum Roy, show that the molecular structure of Silicon Carbide was changed by the SRT™ non-thermal process. "A new polymer has been created", he stated. Professor Roy continued studies on water and found that alkalinity was increased, while the oxidative-reductive potential was reduced, thereby increasing the photon emission and changing the molecular structure. One of the most groundbreaking tests with SRT™ was in adding subtle energy devices to classrooms and measuring behavioral and performance using double blind testing protocols. Dr. Beverly Rubik states in her publication, “This study has implications for the classroom and beyond. Reduction in anxiety in the classroom through SRT™ might help students concentrate and achieve new learning. It might help those with performance anxiety during examinations. It may also mitigate feelings of frustration, hostility, depression, isolation, et cetera, that are associated with acts of violence in schools.” As an expert in subtle energy engineering and its effect on physical systems, Robert O. Williams will be presenting new, groundbreaking research results on field-based technology and its implications on biological systems and human consciousness.

Restoring Natural Atmospheric Pulsation in Northwestern Madagascar with the Reich Cloudbuster
Abstract. Cosmic Orgone Engineering (CORE), also known as cloudbusting, is a method to restore the natural pulsation of the atmosphere, that was conceived by Wilhelm Reich, a psychiatrist and pupil of Freud, at the beginning of the 1950’s. A basic assumption of CORE is that the atmosphere, as well as the Cosmos, is full of a pulsatory energy whose presence was first discovered by Reich when studying the behaviour of human beings, showing how it flows inside the organism; and then, by studying the origins of life, finding it everywhere in Nature. Reich decided to call it orgone energy or simply orgone, and postulated that this pulsatory energy underlies, and is responsible for, all atmospheric phenomena.
Between 1952 and 1957, Reich carried out numerous operations in the United States, most of them aimed at restoring the natural atmospheric pulsation, and bringing rain to areas suffering from drought. Many of these operations, which he referenced by using the term OROP, took place in Maine, primarily in the area surrounding Rangeley. Others were performed near different cities along the Atlantic coast, like New York, Philadelphia, Washington, and Savannah. His most important and long-term experiment was carried out near Tucson, in the desert of Arizona. In the majority of the experiments he obtained the intended results. These were evaluated on the basis of the official weather forecasts on the day of the experiment. To strengthen the hopes of obtaining results an operation was only scheduled when the weather forecast had predicted no rainfall for at least two successive days. In more complex operations, such as those fighting droughts along the Atlantic coast and in the desert of Arizona, or to divert the course of hurricane Edna, the official precipitation data supplied by the US Weather Bureau was consulted.
In the post-reichian period, many scientists performed experiments, both locally and extended over vast areas, to verify the effectiveness of the technology on the atmospheric processes and climate. Amongst them Richard Blasband, Jerome Eden, John Schleining, and James DeMeo stand out. They demonstrated that not only was cloudbusting valid in restoring, at least temporarily, the natural atmospheric pulsation, and in producing rain, but that it even works in extreme climatic conditions and environments, typical of arid and desert areas, such as those existing in the southwestern arid-zone of the United States, in Israel, and in sub-Saharan and southern Africa, such as, Eritrea, and Namibia.
In the last years very few field experiments have been performed with the primary goal of validating the results of the previous field studies. Maglione in 2009 conducted a 2-year project in Madagascar, southeastern Africa, aimed at restoring the atmospheric pulsation and increase precipitation for agricultural purposes. As a result, in addition to restoring the natural pulsation of the atmosphere on a very large area around the operational site, a statistically-significant increase of the precipitation was observed on the same area. This further led to high values of soil humidity after the intervention period even into the dry season, as evidenced by the VHI index, determined from the variation of temperature and humidity by satellite images.
Besides, a substantial reduction of cyclone activity in the post-operative period of the 2010-2011 cyclone season, when compared to the same period of cyclone seasons from 2004 to 2009, was also observed.
As a whole, field studies performed by Maglione fully confirmed the results originally obtained by Reich and by subsequent scientists, in that CORE or cloudbusting might restore the natural pulsation of the atmosphere, and might thus have a direct influence on local weather according to the characteristics of the region under investigation. Besides, reduction of cyclone activities in the post-operative period is a finding that was never previously observed, neither by Reich nor by subsequent scientists.
Studies on “Life Energy” by means of a quantitative dowsing method
Abstract. Wilhelm Reich established the existence of a non-electromagnetic influence he called “Orgone”, which was accumulated inside a box made with alternate layers of metal and organic material: the Orgone Accumulator, or “ORAC”. Critical among his many observations were comparisons between the ORAC and a control box without metal. Thus, as he and others have shown, both the temperature, and growth of seedlings, are higher within the ORAC than control. More recently claims have been made that metal particles set in a non-conductive matrix (“orgonite”) can also behave as a source of orgone. A method was developed to dowse the intensity of such energy quantitatively with rods. Similar energy was dowsed around a large wooden pyramid, and a number of other sources. Like the ORAC the activity of orgonite follows the sun, being highest around mid-day. Such activity is taken up from both sources by water, quartz and some other materials. Objective evidence of its effect on water was obtained by ultra-violet absorption spectroscopy. Temperature experiments established the “temperature effect”, both for a conventional ORAC, and for orgonite, versus controls. Weight measurements of seedlings showed greater growth in the proximity to orgonite than distant from it. This energy can be transmitted non-locally by quantum entanglement between similar images on paper – even across the Atlantic. In this latter case, however, it reached maximum some hours later in the afternoon, when the sun was highest at the location of the source in the USA. Transfer also occurred between samples of human hair, and was better when both samples came from the same individual. Ormus, prepared from Dead Sea salt (DSS), exhibits a similar energy. Whereas the original DSS had little dowsable energy, this was greatly increased by adding solid Magnesium phosphate (MP). Furthermore, ormus activity was found to pass, within a few hours, from DSS solution into MP crystals, through the wall of a glass test tube – presumably by quantum tunnelling. During the passage of ormus into MP, it can be imprinted with information. This was shown (a) by charging with either L- or R-torsion, then dowsing it while shielded in either sucrose solution, or turpentine; and (b) by charging with several frequencies from a Rife generator, which were then dowsed blind by Dr Cyril Smith. Such information can be imprinted equally well by remote entanglement between a pair of images on paper. As an objective verification, water was shielded with either sucrose solution or turpentine during remote imprinting with either L- or R-torsion, and the charge established by UV spectroscopy. In conclusion, my dowsing seems to respond to a “field” around any centre of quantum coherence. Such a field may account for what Reich called orgone energy. In that it favours plant growth, it could be seen as “life energy”: otherwise an anti-entropic, or syntropic influence, leading to states of higher organisation in the local space, and in some kinds of local matter.

Biosemantics of syntropy
Abstract. The human body is a prism that, by a Fourier Transform, decomposes the energy in a spectrum of 4 fundamental interactions; electromagnetic, weak nuclear, strong nuclear and gravitational. These 4 fundamental interactions are detectable clinically by the vascular semantic resonance. Vascular semantic resonance (VSR) is a clinical technology, an in vivo real time biochemical bioassay, based on the vascular resonance of pigments filters with the intracellular pigments, catalysts of the life process and first forms of memory. It gives a spectrogram of every concept corresponding to a biophysical reality. Entropy is a concept valid only in closed system. Life, Mind and Consciousness are open systems. VSR shows that the human body is a complex conjugate of matter and antimatter. There is no annihilation between matter and antimatter in the living systems, but phase conjugation. There is no life without antimatter. Life is characterized by an in vivo spectrogram, including matter and antimatter. The physical body of matter is conjugated with a pericorporeal field of antimatter. GMO and Alzheimer don’t have an antimatter spectrogram. Embryology allows the understanding that the human body, owing to these 4 physical interaction fields, and not only the electromagnetic field, can detect directly the meaning of an «information» in the pericorporeal field, bypassing ectodermic electromagnetic sensory perception, allowing access to the quantic and subquantic levels. Quantic is sensible. Subquantic is intelligible. So the human body is more complex than any technological device. It can detect what no imaging technic can. It is like an analog-digital converter or a prism analysing the energy in its 4 fundamental interactions with a Fourier transform. It is also like a digital-analog converter with an Inverse Fourier transform. Entropy is like analog-digital conversion. Syntropy is like digital-analog conversion. Dystropy is confusion between analog and digital. The vascular semantic spectrogram of syntropy is identical to that of negentropy and consciousness. They are vibratory or operative equivalent of energy. The VSR can detect a zone of resonance for the strong nuclear and for gravitational, not usually measurable clinically. Syntropy resonates with quantic or semiotic level of the 4 fundamental interactions. Semantic resonates with the subquantic level. But there is no semantics without semiotics. Clinical aspects of the semiotic or quantic level; VSR shows 4 zones of biochemical pigment resonance in the pericorporeal field. The Vascular System as an Harmonic Oscillator Manifold indicates the vibratory or operative equivalence between these 4 zones of biochemical resonance and the zones of resonance of the 4 fundamental interactions, 4 basic atoms of life: (C.H.O.N); the 4 nucleotides of DNA:(adenine, guanine, thymine and cytosine); the 4 basic neurotransmitters:(adrenaline-serotonin, acetylcholine-dopamine); the 4 embryo’s layers; ectoderm, endoderm, intra-embryo mesoderm and extra-embryo mesoderm.. There is a fractal resonance at all levels of organisation of the body. The pericorporeal zones of resonance of strong nuclear and electromagnetic interactions correspond to Kinetic energy or Ortho-sympathetic system responsible for catabolism. The pericorporeal zones of resonance of weak nuclear and gravitational interactions correspond to Potential energy ou Para-sympathetic system responsible for anabolism. Kinetic Ortho-sympathetic Catabolism plus Potential Para-sympathetic Anabolism energies constitute the Hamiltonian Syntropy. This Hamiltonian is vibratory equivalent to Being (Ontos). The Lagrangian or Kinetic Ortho-sympathetic Catabolism minus Potential Para-sympathetic anabolism constitute Eros Syntropy like Metabolism is the sum of Ontos and Eros. In Entropy, there is no more gradient; it is hyperinflation of the digital without conversion to analog. No more Big Bang or Big Crunch but a Big Freeze. All these claims stem out of the clinical practice of Vascular Semantic Resonance , first as a vascular surgeon, then only VSR practitioner for the last 20 years(1)
Neuroimaging gives vascular as well as neural correlates of Consciousness. But the measuring device selects only a small part of the whole process. A complex process such as Consciousness can be measured only by a more complex and subtle filter. Our claim is that the cardiovascular network Manifold is such a filter with a Riemann Complex Hypergeometry (2) allowing Harmonic Resonance between all levels of complexity from the most basic physical principles to the most subtle aspects of the human body, from quanta to qualia, from semiotics to semantics or Consciousness.
We proposed the Scale Invariance or Resonance between cellular Microtubular Network and organism vascular Macrotubular Network, the role of ectoderm to detect EM waves and the role of mesoderm to detect gravitational waves (3). The vascular system acts as an Amplifier of microtubular vibrations. Then we proposed that this vascular mesodermic network is acting as Radar (4). A cell or an organism cannot be a receiver if it is not also a transmitter. The human body, as a spectroscope, is such transformer for the 4 fundamental interactions.
In Quantum Mind 2007 we described the role of Harmonic Oscillator Manifold of the vascular system that allows the detection of Vibratory Equivalence or Harmonic Resonance between the 4 layers of the embryo and the Space-Time energy-impulsion quadri-vector.(5)
Ectoderm resonates to logic of non-contradiction. Endoderm resonates to logic of contradiction. Mesoderm, intra-embryo and extra-embryo, resonates to logic of crossed double contradiction (6). Time resonance and Space symmetry are unified.
Without pigments, there is no life, no memory and no Consciousness (7).
The vascular system is a Multiplexing wave guide carrying not only epicritic transversal blood pulse sine waves but also protopathic longitudinal parietal cosine waves.
Epicritic transversal or superficial sine waves are ectodermic nervous system waves. Protopathic or deep longitudinal cosine waves are mediated by the mesodermic vascular system, distributor and connector Manifold.
These longitudinal mesodermic parietal waves act as amplifier of longitudinal waves of the microtubular network manifold that is sensible to 4 fundamental interactions and their harmonics from the atomic level to the Consciousness level, from the semiotic to the semantic level.
The vibratory equivalence between pigments and geometric operators, between pigments and hieroglyphics or written Hebraic and Sanskrit ideograms shows a biological embodiment of Eidetic Resonance, bypassing ectodermic sensory visual and auditory perception. It is the transition from biochemical resonance to semantic resonance.
The mesodermic perception of written language allows a direct perception of the Meaning. Pigments are the first form of memory (7). They are micro-oscillators dynamic systems. Ideograms are also dynamic systems, memory of the action. Meaning is resonance between map and territory (8). The mesodermic manifolds, microtubular or cardiovascular, show the entanglement between map and territory, between function and graphic curve. The mesoderm resonates to the approach of the graph, memory of the function.
Semiotics is of the order of vectors and tensors at the quantic level. Semantic is of the order of spinors and twistors, at the subquantic level. (2, 11) The more complex level allows the understanding of the less complex. But semantics needs semiotics to express a spectrogram.
Semiotics is constituted by the equatorial plane of the spherical ontological dynamic structure of Abéllio that has an important heuristic value (10). Semantics is constituted by the orthogonal vertical axis of this ontological Riemann Sphere at all levels of complexity (11).
This succinct overview suggests that vascular semantic resonance is a solution to the « hard problem » in Consciousness studies, that quanta and qualia are 2 orthogonal aspects of the same biological phenomenon. It is the ectodermic Euclidian logic of non-contradiction that creates this so called «hard problem » which disappears with the mesodermic logic of crossed double contradiction of Abellio (6, 9). This logic shows that there is no dichotomy between matter and spirit, and no dichotomy between matter and antimatter, between waves and corpuscle, but Dialectic.
Dialectic instead of dichotomy is the Life Process.

Energy in the Universe and its Syntropic Forms of Existence According to the BSM - Supergravitation Unified Theory
Abstract. According to the BSM-Supergravitation Unified Theory (BSM-SG), the energy is indispensable feature of matter, while the matter possesses hierarchical levels of organization from a simple to complex forms, with appearance of fields at some levels. Therefore, the energy also follows these levels. At the fundamental level, where the primary energy source exists, the matter is in its primordial form, where two super-dense fundamental particles (FP) exist in a classical pure empty space (not a physical vacuum). They are associated with the Planck scale parameters of frequency and distance and interact by Supergravitational forces. These forces are inverse proportional to the cube of distance at pure empty space and they are based on frequency interactions. Since the two FPs have different intrinsic frequencies, the SG forces appear different for interactions between the like and unlike FPs and may change the sign. This primordial form of matter exists in the super-heavy black holes located in the center of each well-formed galaxy. The next upper level of matter organization includes the underlying structure of the physical vacuum, called a Cosmic Lattice, and the structure of elementary particles. They have common substructure elements obtained by specific crystallization process preceding the formation of the observable galaxies. The Cosmic Lattice, forming a space known as a physical vacuum, is responsible for the existence and propagation of the physical fields: electrical, magnetic, Newtonian gravity and inertia. The energy of physical vacuum is in two forms: Static (enormous) and Dynamic (weak). The Static energy is directly related to the Newtonian mass by the Einstein equation E = mc2 and it is a primary source of the nuclear energy. The Dynamic energy is responsible for the existence of the electric and magnetic fields, the constant speed of light and the quantum mechanical properties of the physical vacuum. The next upper energy level is the dynamical energy of excited atoms and molecules. At this level a hidden energy wells exit, such as the internal energy of the electron and the internal energy of atoms with more than one electron. The next upper energy level is at some organic molecules and particularly in the biomolecules that contain ring atomic structures. In such a structure, some quantum states are not emitted immediately, but rotating in the ring. While in organic molecules the energy stored in such a ring is released by a chemical process, in the long chain molecule of proteins in the living organism the stored energy can be released simultaneously by triggering. A huge number of atomic rings are contained in the DNA strands. The release of the energy stored in DNA, for example, is an avalanche process that causes an emission of entangled photons possessing a strong penetrating capability. A sequence of entangled photons emitted by DNA should carry the genetic information encoded by the cordons. This mechanism, predicted in BSM-SG theory, is very important for intercommunication between the cells of the living organism. The next upper level of energy organization may exist in the brain. The brain is an organ of a most abundant number of atomic rings, while its tissue environment might permit complex energy interactions. The human brain contains billions of atomic rings. The next hypothetical upper level of energy organization is an information field, physically existed outside, but connected with the living brain. It corresponds to a specific field known as aura, while the possibility of its existence is still not accepted by the main stream science. The problem is that this field could not be detected by the currently existing technical means used for EM communications. The BSM-SG predicts that this field might differ from the EM field we use for communication, but it is a subject of a further theoretical development that must be supported by experiments using specifically designed technical means. According to the BSM-SG theory, the energy conversion from the primary energy source to the complex levels of matter and field organization is a permanent syntropic process based on complex resonance interactions.

The intelligence of the heart
Abstract. Each one of us participates to two different levels of time: sequential time, the level of our rational life in which time flows from the past to the future in a succession of absolute moments, and unitary time, the level of emotional life, intuitions and creativity, in which there is coexistence of past, present and future. The heart guides our inner evolution through intuitions, inspirations and creativity and the incredible properties of the unitary time.
Bio. Ulisse first got involved in the theory of syntropy in 1977 when he developed the theory of Vital Needs as a consequence of an intuition that explained depression and anxiety as the result of the conflict between entropy and syntropy. As a consequence of these considerations he decided to enroll in psychology (instead of physics or mathematics which would have been his natural fields), but was profoundly disappointed with the mechanistic approach to life which is common in this field. He then enrolled in a PhD in Statistics where the dean Vittorio Castellano noted the similarity of the theory he had developed and the theory of syntropy which had already been formulated in 1941 by the mathematician Luigi Fantappiè. Vittorio Castellano tutored Ulisse in his final dissertation, but after the death of Castellano no one seemed to be interested in this project. Ulisse started keeping courses at the Department of Statistics of the University of Rome and developed statistical techniques and software which allow the use of qualitative information in scientific studies. He then started providing methodological support to researchers and then conducting research studies in the social field, with a focus on migration.
Syntropy, Life Energy and Resonance
Abstract. The theory of syntropy corresponds to a shift in paradigm, a change in the basic assumptions within the ruling theory of science. It states that we live in a supercausal reality where there are as many forward-in-time and backward-in-time causes. The theory of syntropy reintroduces in a scientific way the notion of “Life Energy” providing hypotheses that can be tested. The implications of the law of syntropy are well described by Fantappiè in this letter to a friend: “In the days just before Christmas 1941, as a consequence of conversations with two colleagues, a physicist and a biologist, I was suddenly projected in a new panorama, which radically changed the vision of science and of the Universe which I had inherited from my teachers, and which I had always considered the strong and certain ground on which to base my scientific investigations. Suddenly I saw the possibility of interpreting a wide range of solutions (the anticipated potentials) of the wave equation which can be considered the fundamental law of the Universe. These solutions had been always rejected as “impossible”, but suddenly they appeared “possible”, and they explained a new category of phenomena which I later named “syntropic”, totally different from the entropic ones, of the mechanical, physical and chemical laws, which obey only the principle of classical causation and the law of entropy. Syntropic phenomena, which are instead represented by those strange solutions of the “anticipated potentials”, should obey two opposite principles of finality (moved by a final cause placed in the future, and not by a cause which is placed in the past) and differentiation, and also non-causable in a laboratory. This last characteristic explains why this type of phenomena has never been reproduced in a laboratory, and its finalistic properties justified the refusal among scientists, who accepted without any doubt the assumption that finalism is a “metaphysical” principle, outside Science and Nature. This assumption obstructed the way to a calm investigation of the real existence of this second type of phenomena; an investigation which I accepted to carry out, even though I felt as if I were falling in an abyss, with incredible consequences and conclusions. It suddenly seemed as if the sky were falling apart, or at least the certainties on which mechanical science had based its assumptions. It appeared to me clear that these “syntropic”, finalistic phenomena which lead to differentiation and could not be reproduced in a laboratory, were real, and existed in nature, as I could recognize them in the living systems. The properties of this new law, opened consequences which were just incredible and which could deeply change the biological, medical, psychological, and social sciences.”

An Introduction to a Value Co-Creation Model. Viability, Syntropy and Resonance in Dyadic Interaction
Sergio Barile* and Marialuisa Saviano**
Purpose – This paper applies the Viable Systems Approach (VSA) to the study of individuals and organizations’ viability, interpreting their life dynamics as interaction processes activated by the pursuing of goals and by the need to gain access to resources.
Design/methodology/approach – The paper takes the Viable Systems Approach as a framework of reference to draw theoretical and methodological contributions of systems thinking in business management.
Findings – A viable systems’ value co-creation model is developed by integrating the contributions of several recent theoretical advances which propose a systemic interpretation of the concept of value. The VSA contributes to highlight the subjective, contextual, emergent and interactional nature of value, and to put forward a view of viable systems’ interactions as value co-creation processes through which they synergistically achieve their goals by effectively integrating resources.
Research limitations/implications – The paper findings effectively deal with conceptual problems but should be integrated with empirical research.
Practical implications – The paper has relevant managerial implications that suggest that decision makers should open their minds to the exploration of new approaches by building on their capability of envisioning future scenarios and being committed in creating them.
Originality/value – The deepening of viable systems’ interaction dynamics allows recognizing the syntropic action of the system’s finality in activating interaction and committing actors toward a resonant achievement of their goals. A reverse causality hypothesis emerges, revealing the laws behind individuals and organizations’ behaviour, and suggesting to rethink business management models by accomplishing a change in perspective from a past to a future based view.
Keywords – Interaction, Value Co-Creation, Viable Systems Approach (VSA), Viability, Syntropy, Reverse Causality.

Creation - A symphony of Syntropy and entropy
Abstract. The entropy of the universe is always increasing with time. That's a universally accepted and proven law. Time is a program that travels unidirectionally, from order to disorder. Logic however demands, that the reverse journey, viz disorder to order must also exist. Information systems are an example of decreasing entropy. Greater the information about a system, lesser is the chaos and disorder. Absolute knowledge or total information represents total syntropy. This ultimate complete intelligence, or syntropy has to induce a certain ignorance within itself to create an illusion of separateness. " What I am, (total knowledge or syntropy) induces varying degrees of "what I am not " (ignorance, illusion or entropy) to manifest itself as this manifold creation. The concept of " entanglement" reaffirms this hypothesis. Knowledge or information is non dual. It is the inherent property of all manifestation. Instantaneous transmission of information between the entangled particles presupposes a separation that never exists. Transmission of information in reality merely is lifting the ignorance of "separateness". Inanimate nature stops at the low level organization of simple molecules. But living systems go on and combine molecules to form macromolecules, macromolecules to form organelles (such as nuclei, mitochondria, chloroplasts, ribosomes, and membranes) and eventually put these all together to form the greatest wonder of creation, a cell, with its astounding inner regulations. The multi cellular organism, is a miracle of sorts. All the organs working independently, yet cohesively and synergistically. The billions of cells, each a unit by itself, working congruently, synchronously in a dynamic harmony. This complex ,structured organisation of cells has become more and more complex since evolution. This is in conflict with the law that says the entropy of the universe is always increasing. Who is the conductor of this symphony of billions, of multicellular life forms? It is a force, that is conscious, intelligent, pulsating and simultaneously blissful. This life force, orchestrates the plurality of cells with a "syntropic " baton. The highest state of this "dynamic harmony" , a state of zero entropy or total syntropy may be the "Shiva" state. "Shakti" is entropy, or ignorance that generates a conviction of separateness. Shakti, combines with "Shiva" or total absolute knowledge in varying proportions to manifest as creation. Matter, is condensation of energy and energy , sublimation of matter. Matter and energy are inter convertible, but it's only when they are sanctified by syntropy or "Shiva", that life force is generated to eventually evolve as the epitome of creation - "self realised " beings. Consciousness may therefore not an emergent phenomenon, as believed by most neuroscientists, but a quantum coherence, a state of zero entropy, a "Shiva" state, a state of knowledge unadulterated by any ignorance, created by its own self. It is the pinnacle of intelligence, to be able to cast a spell of ignorance on its own self , and simultaneously become the observer, observed and observation. Manifest creation is a synergy of syntropy and entropy,a cosmic waltz of "Shiva" and " Shakti", a duet of intelligence and its self-conceived ignorance.

Bio. Past life regression therapist and energy healer. Our " PAST" lives - A clue to the present and a guide to the future. The "Karmic" theory is rapidly gaining wide acceptance as a philosophical, spiritual basis of causality, that explains not only what happens in our present lives, but also whom we meet and the nature of our interactions with them. Dr Medha Khasgiwale defended her doctoral thesis and was awarded a doctorate in January 2012 in the above mentioned topic. Since receiving her doctorate, she has been giving a one and a half hour talk on the subject of "Journey of the soul, and Life after death". Thanks to her exposure to the world of media, Medha strikes an instant rapport and connect with the audiences and holds them spellbound with her oratory skills and the content. With modern science also acknowledging the paranormal phenomenon like Near Death Experience (NDE) and Out of Body Experience (OBE), there is a growing interest in this metaphysical phenomenon. Unlocking the Knowledge of our past that is buried deep in our subconscious may add a whole new dimension to understanding our self and our personality with greater accuracy. These shows have received an overwhelming response all over Maharashtra. She has been invited as a keynote speaker in various forums and has developed a considerable audience. Audio CDs of these talks are also available. She has anchored, and hosted talk shows on all leading Indian television channels in local language. She has anchored and acted in more than 50 corporate films. She has also ventured in modelling and has been cast in seven advertising campaigns. An artist with a flair for painting, she has hosted four exhibitions of her paintings that largely featured landscapes, portraits and abstracts. Her dedication to painting , coupled with a deeply humane disposition inspired her to teach painting to the visually challenged students of "Nivant" blind school. Medha being a spiritually inclined person was deeply interested in understanding more about the karmic theory and about past life. Being a highly intuitive person herself, she was quite convinced about the role of past lives providing a sort of template for unfolding the present circumstances. Her continued interest in this field propelled her to take up the subject of "Journey of the soul & Life after death" for a doctoral thesis. She has now extended her expertise in conducting past life regression sessions, that help the subject unravel his/her past life. It involves inducing a state of relaxation and hypnosis, enabling the subject an access to his sub conscious, that is the store house of all the memories of past births. This helps the subject manifold.
1) understand the rationale for all the fears lurking in the sub conscious.
2) serves as a very potent tool for emotional catharsis
3) helps the subject decipher behavioural patterns of those close to him/her
4) can help the subject understand himself/herself better and devise a strategy to deal with people and situations more rationally and holistically
5) these sessions also help in clearing up the blockages in the "chakras" or energy centres as chakra cleansing and energy healing is done during the session
This technique is fast emerging as an important ancillary treatment modality in holistic health care in leading multi speciality hospitals. Diagnosis of ailments, fears and attitudes my get a whole new meaning, with the roots of most maladies being traced o the "psyche" and reaffirm the profound psychosomatic interconnection.
Is illness a manifestation of distortion of the psychic energy centres (chakras) - A Vedic Perspective
Abstract. A universal principle of physics states that energy is never lost and is only transformed. The energy that drives the body and all its functions is made up of a complex network comprising of energy centres (chakras) and energy channels (Nadis). The major three Nadis or pathways are "Ida, Pingala and Sushumna" and the chakras are located on the intersection points of these three main channels. Chakras, in Hindu metaphysical tradition, are centres of Prāṇa, life force, or vital energy. Chakras correspond to vital points in the physical body i.e. major plexuses of arteries, veins and nerves. The Chakras are the point of intersection of the subtle (psychic) and the gross. Therefore any modulation of the subtle has a proportionate impact on the gross (body). The chakras are described as being aligned in an ascending column from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each chakra is associated with a certain colour, multiple physiological functions, an aspect of consciousness, and other distinguishing characteristics. They are visualised as lotuses/flowers with a different number of petals in every chakra. There are a total of seven main Chakras in the human body and have been documented by Aura Scanning (PIP scanning). All major ailments and disorders have revealed distortion of the involved Chakras and have been restored following different types of energy healing such as crystal, pyramid, aura, pranic, reiki or psychic surgery. This healing is at the subtle level which impacts the gross body. This also lends credibility to the strong psycho-somatic association of illness. The paper would attempt to explain the energy patterns prevalent in the chakras, their anatomical and physiological correlation and relevance in health and disease. Modern medicine has focused its attention on the gross tangible body with scant regard to the subtle energy dynamics. With the advent of modern imaging modalities, the ancient Vedic doctrines are fast transforming from hypothesis to documented reality. This paper highlights the importance of these Energy Centres (chakras) and provide impetus to introspect on the impact of the subtle energy centres on the gross body.

International Academy of Consciousness - http://www.iacworld.org/
IAC, the International Academy of Consciousness. A non-profit research and education organization dedicated to investigating consciousness and helping people develop their human potential to the maximum. At IAC, great emphasis is placed on the rational study and development of psychic and energetic abilities, especially the out-of-body experience (OBE), as a means of understanding the multi-dimensional fabric of our reality and learning how to live better within it.
Bio. Alexandre Madurell has experienced out of body projections since childhood. Former graduate student in Chemistry, he switched to a professional career in Computer Sciences while joining the International Academy of Consciousness in 1997, as a volunteer, instructor and research assistant, first in Barcelona, then in Miami, and now in Milan. Fairly versed in English, Portuguese, and Italian (besides his mother tongues Spanish and Catalan), he has lectured on subjects related to OBE and psychic phenomena, in several cities in Europe, North America and South America, as well as performed simultaneous translation of other speakers in symposia and congresses on related topics. In addition, he has participated in the translation and revision of a few conscientiological books from Portuguese into Spanish. At present, he is orchestrating the works behind the online version of the Journal of Conscientiology, IAC’s quarterly publication of peer-reviewed research papers and articles related to the study of physical and non-physical attributes of consciousness (including energies, extra-physical bodies, multiple existences and multidimensional communications and manifestations).
The Consciential Paradigm:
A consciousness-centered framework for expanding the study of reality through bioenergy, OBE, and allied phenomena.
Abstract. The phenomenon of “out-of-body experience” (OBE) has been reported since the earliest civilizations. However, its study under laboratorial conditions has been mostly neglected in scientific circles or aprioristically approached as being the result of abnormal neurological activity. A growing number of studies have surfaced in recent years, which reveal a fundamental division when studying human consciousness and human potential regarding these and other related experiences. Some of them present psychobiological reductionist interpretations, in cases of particular patients with neurological affections. Others present a non-local view of consciousness, awareness and perception, but their studies focus mainly in cases of near-death experiences (NDE’s, which could be considered a particular subset of OBE’s). Such case studies are limited in the sense that they do not represent the full variety and diversity of the healthy human population, nor do they explain certain phenomena such as precognitive OBE’s or simulcognitive perceptions of distant or hidden objects (remote perception). Experimental science is largely limited to physical instruments and theoretical science is limited by its positivist, materialistic, reductionist metaphysical biases. Moreover, in both cases, they present a traditional separation of the object of study and the researcher, normative in conventional sciences. This present paper defends the scientific validity of first-person and second-person perspective research on so-called “anomalous” consciousness-related phenomena, with a particular focus on the OBE, as an important complement to third-person laboratorial or clinical studies. The consciential paradigm, a paradigm that is centered on consciousness rather than matter-energy, posits that the researcher may simultaneously become the agent of study, the object of study and the instrument of research. Some degree of objectivity is attained through an evolving comparison among many other researchers’ consensual or refutational self-experiments or even joint or sympathetic experiments. We conclude by presenting an overview of past and ongoing research highlights conducted under this research paradigm, which suggests that we, as individuals, possess an actual physiological structure that goes beyond that of the physical body. Such hypothesis goes hand in hand with the proposal of a model for how consciousness relates to what is perceived as Reality, including physical space-time and layers of existence beyond the Euclidian material reality. In this model, consciousness is not the result of matter-energy. Rather, it is an increasingly intelligent, evolving, complexifying, organizing, ordering principle that manifests through matter-energy as a syntropic, living entity that drives biological evolution, and gives rise and meaning to reality, as a reflection of consciousness.

The Paradox of Physics
Abstract. When you come to look into the nature of the world it is full of paradoxical questions. It was the inventiveness of the twentieth century to take some of these paradoxes seriously. Thus Einstein built relativity on the understanding that travelling at the speed of light one would register no interval of space or time. Or Bohr argued quantum theory from the tested fact that where an observer makes a measurement is able to change the outcome of an experiment. The old wisdom would say that the relation of the spiritual to the material is itself an unfathomable paradox. Yet our scientific caution still demands that we only accept the paradoxical as it applies to material grounded existence. What if we allowed that many of the paradoxes of life are to do with making choices about a meaning we dimly perceive that only becomes real in the living? We explore a ground of paradoxical logic, developed by Spencer Brown, Kauffman, Bortoft and Hiley that allows itself a broader foundation than classical physics. But here a new paradox emerges. If we enlarge the ground of events for physics to consider, then what we mean by space and time radically changes. So how does the time of paradoxical logic compare with the time of the logic of existence, in which things already are? Here we are confronted with a new paradox on which to apply our logic of paradox. “If my being is paradoxical, then what is meant by that paradox?” Is our logic of paradox able to resolve this existential dilemma?
Bio. Dominique Surel is a Noetic scientist who lectures and conducts trainings worldwide in the development of Intuitive Intelligence and Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV). She was trained in CRV to the Advanced Level by one of the best original US military viewers, Lyn Buchanan. She has also been a professional radiesthesiste for over 20 years. In the early 2000s Dominique created a unique methodology to develop intuitive intelligence by incorporating some of the powerful components of CRV. Dominique’s PhD research addressed the role of intuition in the decision making process. She also holds an MBA and, while living in Paris and London, worked for over 15 years as a consultant for global corporations in strategic positioning. Many of the projects involved corporate culture and communications issues and she quickly realized that creative solutions were not generated by using models but by integrating intuition, knowledge, and critical thinking. In her quest to develop the human consciousness, Dominique created the Intuitive Intelligence Training – the Surel Method - to change the way we use our brain by transcending analytical thinking out of the world of models into a higher sphere of integrated cognitive skills. By increasing intuitive intelligence skills we can tap into the holographic system where non-locality and psi phenomena interact. The method also includes integrating knowledge about neuroscience and quantum physics as well as neuro-cardiology. The purpose is to help professionals make better decisions and shift their thinking process to a more evolved level. The method also applies to create true innovative thinking for R&D and strategic planning. Individuals who train in developing their intuition and those who learn CRV report experiencing a connection to something that is bigger than us. This realization often triggers a transformational process. As history repeats itself, the motivating inspiration behind Dominique’s work is to find ways of developing the human potential to shift the human thinking process out of its present paradigm to trigger the evolution of human consciousness. Her concern however is that the research findings must be translated into actionable applications and into the different professions of society rather than remaining in the more passive realm of philosophy, and theoretical science. Dominique is a Professor and Dean of Faculty at Energy Medicine University (California). She teaches Intuitive Intelligence, Critical Thinking, Leadership, and CRV. She is one of the three founders of the World Institute for Scientific Exploration; she is on the Council of the Society for Scientific Exploration, and a member of the Princeton International Consciousness Research Lab.
Controlled Remote Viewing – Transformational
Abstract. This lecture will address the personal transformational impact that learning Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV) can have on the viewer. The actual experience of traveling in the time-space matrix has a dual implication: the impact on brain restructuration and the impact on our emotional and intellectual state. The lecture will briefly explain the CRV Protocol and then explore the interaction between the individual and the accessing of non-local information. Comments from remote viewing learners’ transformational experience will be presented as well as preliminary findings of a small CRV/EEG pilot research. Over time, the practice of the CRV Protocol creates a communications channel between the conscious and the unconscious. By keeping the conscious busy with administrative-type chores, the door of the unconscious is then free from interference and the viewer can access the time-space matrix. For most viewers, learning the CRV methodology introduces new interactions within the brain. Freeing up the unconscious and expanding the aperture will create new experiences for the individual who will see and feel impressions from different time-space environments. The CRV experience is different than any form of dreaming or traveling in an altered state. The remote viewer is in a state of alertness while following the structure of the session. Scientific research demonstrates that when the brain embarks in new functions, such as an increase of information to process, or using a cognitive function in a new way, it reconstructs to accommodate these changes. New neurons and neural pathways are produced, and thus the brain reconstructs itself at a higher level of functionality. Nobel Prize Laureate, Prigogine, demonstrated that the brain functions as an open system and is thus subject to the laws of dissipative systems and restructuring (Gilstrap, 2007). Furthermore, Dr. Rollin McCraty’s research (McCraty, 2009) demonstrates that the heart plays a major role in capturing impressions of non-local information and sending them to the brain. The heart is not just a pump, but has an intricate neural network and its energy field appears to have the capability of sensing events before they happen. Recent neuroscience findings demonstrate that although both the brain and the heart access non-local information, the heart receives some of this information before the brain. As a CRV learner expands his/her sensitivities and opens the aperture into the time-space matrix, it is to be expected that the person’s perceptions and reference points in life might be affected. Understanding and anticipating the possible changes one might experience in learning CRV will help the viewer manage and maximize the process in a positive way. Many learners report increased clarity in decision-making and assessing situations, more positive synchronicities in their life, and an increase in intuitive insights.

How might we Actively Escape the Entropic Trap of the Industrial Era?
Abstract. We remember well the struggle Copernicus and Galileo had in changing our perspective in SPACE from that of a geocentric view to a heliocentric. Were we as humans to wish to live on this planet for the next 500 to 800 million years, might we need a similar paradigm shift, but in terms of how we see, understand and work with TIME? Perhaps we’ll need to leave Einstein’s one-dimensional notion of time behind and move to a 3D view of the inner dynamics of human TIME. I am sure our conversations and dialoguing will open up many new horizons of insights.
The presentation will look briefly at three themes:
- The Industrial Paradigm and Education - how entropic?
- SPACE and TIME – does sight really blind us?
- Human Greed - suffering the fallacy of misplaced concreteness?
How caged in are we with our assumptions, norms, paradigms, beliefs and even language, especially thanks to our Industrial Era? Why is it so hard to appreciate the UNKNOWN, the TACIT, the SUBJECTIVE and the UNMANIFEST? Do these inabilities hide from us the dynamics of the “life energy” ever so present, even when we fail to notice? Perhaps when we realize there is an alternative to raw mechanical Entropy, we can again begin to tap our inner energy in a wonderful Syntropic manner? Let us see what we can discover together and how we can link the rich insights of such a distinguished community of explorers.

Social Resonance in Path Emergence" at the Life Energy Conference
"Path emergence" is presented as an epistemological map to explain the mechanism of the emergent micro-macro link in complex social systems. Path emergence draws on David Bohm's quantum mechanic thesis of "the unbroken wholeness of the totality of existence as an undivided flowing movement without borders". This paper argues that perceptual and intentional information that has been enfolded into the social field over vast amounts of time by all individuals is unfolded into an explicate social order by resonant communication. Quantum resonance through communication activities through individualized cognitive neurological quantum wave-function. This points to the fact neurological encoding is a quantum-electric process that originates in and is sustained continuously by the brain's resonance. Evolving resonant relationships in a social field embody social symbioses through a complex web of symbolic communication. The amplified cognitive functions of processing, retaining, and using coded information triggers the appearance of an explicate social order that often involves emergent properties, exhibiting a new pattern of relationships and connections. The complex process of path emergence is explained by synchronous mechanisms of morphogenetic fields, social resonance, self-organized criticality, and co-evolution.
