Extraordinary Biology

    Work of Australians Reed and Barsamian, and the American G. Wilbanks
At the University of Sydney, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, some magnificent work of great importance to our thesis has been accomplished.  Indeed, this Australian research may well be some of the most important work going on in the Western world today.
    Dr. B. L. Reid, Dr. S. Barsamian, and their colleagues have produced experimental studies that positively verify pattern and form transmission at a distance, even through Faraday shielding.  They have directly shown the reaction to, and results of, an unexplored information field on both living cells and inert crystalline matter.
    In addition, they have replicated -and extended -the published results of Kaznacheyev on the cytopathogenic effect.  In fact, they have obtained the effect at over 100 meters.

    This shows, of course, that the effect is not just mesoscopic, but also macroscopic.  Whether we like it or not, structural patterns of cellular disease can positively be transmitted electromagnetically, and kindled in target cell structures at a distance.
      Dr. Reid has been interested in the origins of cancer since at least 1958.  After much work in the standard models, by the late 1970's he was convinced that the present approach of medical science is wrong.  He reasoned that we should pay stricter attention to the nature of growth before examining new growth, i.e., cancer.  Growth, of course, is creation - and so the problem became, what is creation?
     As a metaphor for biological growth to work with, he and his colleagues chose the growth of crystals.  With keen foresight and intuition, they directed their inquiry so as to expose the complicity of some force - if any - external to solute and solvent.
     Their work began to show that such a force existed, and it was a type that was unaffected by interposition of a Faraday cage.  In other words, it was not a conventional electrical force. *

*For one related possible scalar EM (electrogravitation) interaction, see Ya. B. Zel'dovich, "Electromagnetic current and charge due to interaction between a gravitational and a free
electromagnetic field," J. Exper. and Elec. Phy. (Soviet translation), 16(7), Ocl. 5, 1972, p. 302-303.

     Dr. Reid and his colleagues then included biological subjects in the form of living cells.  They were familiar with Kaznacheyev's work in Alma Ata, Kazakstan on the subject of long range transmission of pathological (viral) effects on cells.  In addition, they were familiar with the seminal studies of Gurwitsch on transmissions by onion roots cells, in the 1920's.
     Most of their basic studies on the nature of the new force, however, were made with common salt, drying from aqueous solution,  Some of their major results were as follows:

  1. The familiar cubic symmetry is altered toward a higher energy form of dendrite crystals when biopolymers such as protein are included in the solvent.
  2. A mass of lead 12-20 kg in the crystal space (up to 1 meter distant) causes an interference pattern in the salt crystal display.
  3. A prospective dendrite pattern is not realized when a prospective cubic-pattern of the salt is dried in the local space (up to 1 meter).  The latter by its presence  in space is able to prevent the dendrite expression and enhance the cubic symmetry expression.  A photograph of crystals of cubic symmetry when moved by a vibrating holder (2 cps) has the same effect on the real crystals drying from the solvent.
  4. Dendrite forms of salt crystal result when certain chemical reactions involving proton or ion movement occur up to 30 meters away, separated by brick walls, glass, etc.  These reactions were detailed by Dr. Reid and his colleagues.  If the mother solution is examined by ac capacitance on a sensitive bridge, variations in capacitance of over 300% accompany the receipt of the signal.
  5. If such a transmission from 30 meters distance is regarded as a carrier wave which is modulated by a foreign - and thus detectable - chemical, the chemical can be detected in the distant atmosphere some 3 months later in the form of a discrete or adiabatic 'cloud' which contaminates sodium chloride drying at the same time.  In this way, copper sulfate dissolved at a site A in June 1985 could be repeatably detected at site B, 30 meters distant and separated by walls, screens etc., by a drying solution of sodium chloride solution in September 1985.  Serial dryings of the sodium chloride solution on glass slides showed that each day, the cloud hovered over a space of 1-2 cm at the end of a venturi tube for several hours before 3 p.m., and then moved off at 1 meter per hour in a NW direction.  The copper content of the cloud was discernible by crystal structure and chemical means from the adjacent sodium chloride.
  6. All of the above crystal forms required ambient oxygen for their manifestation. Atmospheres of nitrogen and argon prevented their display.  At the time, the researchers suspected that the effects may have been carried by orbital electrons of oxygen showing unpaired spin which had interchanged with electrons of the copper solution.  They then developed an information-carrying device which could 'infect' the electron cloud of a target molecule sufficient for the chemical display of properties of the infecting electron's parent atom.  This concept seemed to explain the experiment of the following paragraph.
  7. Two beakers of sodium chloride solution were connected in series with a small voltage source (say a 1.5V dry cell) to provide a transfer of electrons through each beaker.  The second beaker in series was sampled for subsequent drying and display of the crystal form.  A crystal form of cubic symmetry resulted.  When the solvent of the first beaker was altered by the addition of a protein solution (such as albumen or globulin), the crystal pattern of the second beaker was altered from cubic to dendrite pattern as though protein were present in the second solution.
  8. During attempts to stabilize salt crystals on glass by means of thin plastic films drying from appropriate solvents (in order to stain the salt with aqueous solutions of dyestuff), it was discovered by chance that the crystallizing process is accompanied by structural patterns on the plastic film so exposed.  These patterns were of two major types:  (a) vortices, or spirals in the film plane, of 0.1 to 1.0 mm diameter, and (b) smaller curled structures into which the spiral could be seen to merge or grade.  From a concurrent mathematical study of vorticeal interaction as designed by Barsamian, the similarity of the curl structures in plastic films (the researchers usually used 0.25% polystyrene in benzol) to computer simulations of vorticeal vectors was shown to be remarkable.
  9. The researchers then dispensed with the underlying crystals and exposed the drying polymer film to a variety of spaces where the field, thought to be responsible for many of these tele-effects, was operative.  With this technical advance, the team has made rapid progress over the last year or so.  They have come to have a more comprehensive grasp of the ether field than was possible by less direct methods involving formation of crystals.
  10. On the biological side, they repeated the Russian studies done at Alma Ata with transmission of the cytopathogenic effect of viruses on animal cells.  They used the cytopathogenic effect of colchicine and its relative vinblastine on cells with the following differences from the published Russian work:  (a) The effect can be transmitted at least 100 meters between campus buildings, (b) it is not necessary to use a magnetic field for the propagation, (c) it is not necessary to use quartz vessels; glass is quite effective.  These experiments came to the attention of a colleague, Dr. G. Wilbanks, Head, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Medical School, University of Chicago in 1983.  Dr. Wilbanks was able to repeat them with similar results. However, in a more faithful copy of the Russian experiments, he used quartz vessels with cells placed in a magnetic field, with the vessels separated by no more than 1 mm.  Both the Australian researchers and Dr. Wilbanks shared another thing in common: their uniform inability to interest the editors of several scientific journals such as Science, Nature, Naturewissenchaften, and others in publishing papers describing these fundamental experiments and results.
  11. Experience with interference of a lead mass in the crystal work prompted the use of several metals in the ambient field of growing cells.  Only lead (and to a lesser extent tin) showed the following properties: (a) Cell growth with 0.5-5 Kg lead in the ambient field is depressed sometimes to one third normal. (b) The cells die (dye exclusion test) but then can be revived by placing a small bar magnet in the local space with its poles in an E-W orientation.  At least in Sydney, a N-S orientation of the bar magnet does not revive the stricken cells.
  12. The effects of energy flowing through living matter have been documented by Kirlian's method.  It was therefore of interest to the Australian researchers to expose living systems to drying films of polystyrene.  They found that the staining properties of the ambient-derived image on plastic films parallel those of the real organism.
  13. By appropriate use of an imposed potential on living cells, it proved possible to match the field strength and show the actual imposition of the ambient (scalar) field on the bio-polymer content of the material during the permeation process.  The traces obtained are not unlike noise and would be so regarded by the casual investigator.  The design of this apparatus and associated experiments was the work of Dr. Barsamian.

     Concepts of Dr. Reid and Associates
Dr. Reid has kindly shared with me some of the concepts he and his colleagues have formulated.  These concepts, it is stressed, are consonant with direct physical results they have obtained in the laboratory.
      Note that any errors in this explanation are strictly the fault of this author, and not of  Dr. Reid and his colleagues.

  1. Matter is bathed in an energy sea familiar to quantum theorists.  The Australian team prefers to call this sea of energy ether, as a relatively bland term, perhaps in a way to rescue it from the oblivion where Einstein banished it.  The key to the silence of this sea is its "fractional-charge" charged particle status and low energy values.  The former conceals it from physics, while the latter conceals it from chemistry and thermodynamics.

  2.  The differing energy levels of this sea, combined with its enduring motion, are theoretically and practically best expressed as a vortex.  Dr. Reid and associates have detailed this theory to explain the creativity of biology.  The incipient creativity of the vortex is given material expression by its association (as part of the EM field) with an electron which it now endows with equivalent novel properties.  There is no intuitive reason why the energetic rearrangements of the electron cloud cannot proceed to the nucleus, there to set up a quark or proton rearrangement - or, as the quantum theorist would say, a virtual particle exchange - leading to transmutation.  Kervran's work on biological transmutations is relevant; the literature of such effects goes back to 1798 at least!  The team suspects that some such mechanism may underlie their experimental result of the transition of sodium to copper.
  3. A further prime property of vorticeal interaction is its proclivity for amplification, wherein the atomic-size vortex can be built up to the meteorological hurricane by such adherence or affinity.  The team has noted the affinity of ambient field vortices to those produced by an electric current in a metallic conductor, with particular reference to the ill-defined boundary between the two.  This parasitism was the reason behind the team's use of "carrier waves" from chemical reactions as transporters of fields whose identity of origin were sufficiently specific to trace the field subsequently.  It is at least conceivable that the whole process could be amplified and used to parasitize (modulate) a radar beam as carrier.  The affinity property of fields may be exhibited by the experience of mariners with what they loosely term "magnetic phenomena" thought to be derived from luminescent plankton.  In the South China and Arabian Gulf seas, giant "wheels" of light, 5- 15 km in diameter and containing spiraling spokes, revolve about the ship at night, reversing their direction of rotation as they pass the midpoint of the vessel.  The key observation in the context of the field affinity concept is that the luminescence is manifoldly enhanced when the ship's radar is switched on.  There could thus exist a chain, scalar-EM/plankton-optical, the first leg (scalar EM) of which can be amplified by radar EM.

  4. The property of affinity means that a scalar field's transform or copy, of the energy disposition imposed on it by the experience of matter last permeated, may persist as a memory in space, as many of the Australian observations attest.  The team found that recall was not all that difficult technically.  The energy transform for copper sulfate existing as a non-dissipated cloud with marked adiabatic properties could be recalled five months after its formation.  There is no reason why informationally more elaborate spatial configurations of energy, including human thoughts, will not behave in precisely the same way.  The cell nucleus could conceivably be the candidate for the first site for storage of such energy.  The nucleus has a highly ordered structure and an associated high permittivity, and this would make it a real target.  In the human subject, there is experimental evidence that the mongoloid polymer constitution will have a higher activity for storage of the ambient field than will the Caucasian.

     Other Important Ideas
Dr. Reid also shared other important insights:
     Lavoisier in 1748 advanced the concept that matter itself {chemicals) is inert.  The activity of all chemicals, according to Lavoisier, resided in their associated ether - and God sent the ether!
     Taken to its limit, this suggests that the source of the energy which we call thought is a property of the scalar field.  Matter (say, the nervous system) interacting with these fields, would be incapable of discerning the source of the field as presented, whether of self or external origin.
     In his book Hidden Variables in Quantum Theory, Dr. David Bohm felt that in 'elevating' ( his word) matter (as particles) from the sea, it might be possible to consider the idea as containing even more elaborate energy transforms such as biological shapes, these transforms themselves undergoing metamorphosis. [Comment by this author:  Rife's microscope, using evanescent waves, actually allowed one to directly see and photograph such forms, proving the thesis.]
     The ability of the Australian researchers to rescue these transforms on films together with evidence that they could be seeing the results of the exclusively space interaction of virtual forms (say microbe and antibiotic), is also a direct technical step toward validating Bohm's important idea.

     Wider Implications of Structured Field Information
As T .D. Lee points out in his important book, Particle Physics and Introduction to Field Theory, particle physicists have not attempted to use the structure of the vacuum nor the structure of potentials.
     Dr. Barsamian has shared other wider implications of the structured ether.
     Over the ages a phenomenon which, as discussed, can have no representation in real (that is, electromagnetic or thermodynamic) terms can hardly have been thought of as possessing specific structure or function.  Instead, it signaled its undoubted presence to generations of philosophers and physicists before Einstein, solely through statistical effects.
     The writings of Helmholtz, James Clerk Maxwell, and Neils Bohr are examples. The more recent Dirac and Fermi statistics are a continuation of the process.
     If an alternative definition of science is the continuing refinement of that which we partially knew or took for granted, then the refinement of these statistical approaches -- with their obligatory uncertainty as defined by Heisenberg - is a worthy goal.
     In this sense, a more articulate description of the anatomy of the field is a logical progression from the beginnings of the ether concept in Classical Greece through to the statistics of the nineteenth to the early twentieth century.
     A hundred years ago, this orderly progression even reached the concept of a vorticeal atom at the hands of J .J .Thompson.  However, it was interrupted very effectively by Einstein's publication of the special theory of relativity.
     Einstein was fortunate in that he had chosen for his mathematics a pivotal feature of the ether field, its elasticity.  The mathematics of elasticity had been evolving - through the developments of Hooke, Young, invariance, and the calculus - to handle its historically increasing complexity (by tensors).  This mathematics of elasticity was then available to Einstein.  The wisdom of this choice
 was vindicated by the remarkable special relativity predictions which were born out in subsequent observation and experiment.
          There was seemingly no need to suspect, let alone probe, any special properties of the medium underlying the mathematics.*

*As, for example, whether or not the concept of an abstract vector space in vector mathematics must be modified to correspond to what we know about the vacuum medium.  If the vectors are to correspond to the movements of physical things in the vacuum medium, then the vector medium must correspond to the vacuum.

          The success of these predictions effectively blocked any chance of a return to the ether field concept.  Indeed, it was seen as an arrogance to despoil the "elegance" of the mathematics.  Nor was the success of quantum mechanics - the other leg of the Western World statistical approach to the nature of reality - able to get the physicists to heed Bohm's 1958 ideas on the hidden variables in its fabric or Dirac's 1952 ideas on a lesser uncertainty of the particle-field relationship than Heisenberg had formulated.
          Recently Dr. Barsamian has originated the concept of an alienation of the electron from its field.  The full expression of this could see the field so alienated that it is well-nigh autonomous, and some kind of fundamental entity in its own right.
          In this sense, the freed autonomous field - at least conceptually - could proceed with its creativity by hybridization with other fields and so return the product of these asides to the particle.  In atoms of the next fragment of matter with which the particle then associates, this product could create novel properties derived from the interchange.
           The multiple properties of such a field allow it to be resolved in EM (electrostatics and electrodynamics), in atomic structure (electrons and nucleons), and in pressure (gravity) terms.  This universality makes a new concept possible, long beloved of the GUT (Grand Unified Theory) theorists:  that there is only one energy.
           It is also quite possible that this ubiquity need not be confined to physics.  It may penetrate the biological imponderables of growth, new growth and consciousness.
           In view of the work of Dr. Reid and his associates, and other work - such as that of Hines and Chimonas showing atmospheric gravity waves launched by auroral currents - the prospect of amplification and transmission of transforms and patterns over long distances, through affinity with long distance carriers, is indicated.
     Dr. Reid stated that it would be surprising if other laboratories outside Russia had not progressed as far, if not further, than he and his associates had.  Obviously the lack of similar publication indicates the nearly impenetrable editorial curtain confronting Western researchers in this and related areas.

     Dr. Barsamian's Important Theoretical Insights
Dr. Barsamian has formulated a theory in relation to the development of cancer that is of great importance.
     In his theory, he is developing the approach of classical mechanics to electromagnetic interactions between charged particles and between dipoles.  The field associated with the primary moving particle is not neglected in his theory, and this part of it differs from Dirac's "new electromagnetic theory."
     The field associated with the primary moving particle, in Dr. Barsamian's approach, is viewed as an important part of the particle's interactions.  This field is stressed in the sense that diverse phenomena - from Maxwell's EM field radiating from the remotest regions of the universe to the controlled charge flow in the matter medium - are viewed as manifestations of EM forces.
     This of course is unlike the traditional relativity view of EM force action on moving charges.
     In Dr. Barsamian's view, the potential vectors (derived by a treatment from fluid mechanics theory) form an EM field and are positioned on a vortex curve.  All parameters of such a field can be treated mathematically, and Dr. Barsamian has one or more papers presently in publication.
     The duality of such potential vectors (gradients) is to conduct the motion of particles (which are always either charged or dipolar) appearing in nonmatter, which is taken as an incompressible continuum - the "void."  Because the final results of these forces are always movement of matter, Dr. Barsamian prefers not to classify them by their origin.
     Such a field may persist with great permanence.  There are some limitations in summation (triplet conditions) and selectivity (periodicity) of the vortices themselves.  Part of these limitations takes the
form of particle characteristics.  Presently he is rather sure that the formation of patterns of organic, inorganic and liquid crystals (typical to living biomatter) are partially responsive to the effect of the described field.
     Dr. Barsamian is attempting to synthesize his own experimental findings on the dielectric behavior of biosystems as they enter the cancer process with the data that Dr. Reid is producing with respect to action at a distance.
     With respect to living systems, he has slowly been approaching the conclusion that existing physical laws are just not applicable concerning (1) entropy, or (2) energy breakdown, or (3) random collisions of particles in quantum terms, or (4) electron-ion exchanges in bioelectrochemistry terms.
     Under such circumstances, it is difficult to find a referee who sincerely understands the related experiments and their underlying theory.  This presents a nearly impenetrable barrier to publication in leading scientific journals.
     This is tragic, because these considerations and experimental results at least provide an entry into more fundamental experiments with present lethal diseases such as cancer and AIDS which annually take large numbers of human lives.
     The present state of the art is telling everyone loud and clear that something fundamental is wrong with present theory, and that we should come to terms with more novel views.
     Comment by the present author:  In his prophetic insights, Dr. Barsamian has placed his finger squarely on the fundamental struggle of living systems against the "positive energy/time" laws of present physics.  In its struggle, the living system must use negative energy/time, to correct from disorder to order and provide the extra free energy to do so.  Otherwise, the steady progress toward increasing disorder in all its actions, would very shortly reduce the living system to such a disordered state that it could no longer reproduce the clear genetic pattern of its own kind.  We have already pointed out the hitherto unexpected role that phase conjugation plays in allowing the living system to violate and break the iron dictates of conservation, nontransmutation, entropy, and raw statistics.
     To live and survive, a living system must have access to other functional levels and other mechanisms beyond those contained in our present physics, electromagnetics, and biochemistry..
    The incredibly productive and important work of Drs. Reid, Barsamian, and associates is of the utmost importance.  Their work clearly moves everything in biochemistry and the knowledge of cellular functioning a major step forward.
     It is a betrayal of the scientific method that such vital work goes so largely unreported in the leading journals.  Indeed, the work of these Australian scientists should be galvanized and well-staffed and funded.  They can literally usher in a new science, given the chance to further exploit and develop their results.
