    Physical basis of adverse and therapeutic effects of low intensity
    microwave radiation.

    A physical basis of adverse and therapeutic effects of low intensity
    microwave radiation is presented based on the concept of oscillatory
    similitude between the frequency of an external microwave field
    (together with any lower frequency modulations thereof) and those of
    certain endogenous dipolar coherent excitations allied to aliveness,
    which play the role of ‘tuned circuits’ via which a living organism is
    electromagnetically sensitised in a non-linear way to external fields
    too weak to be able to cause heating. From this perspective, an
    external electromagnetic field affects a living system not as a toxin
    but rather by perturbing its endogenous electromagnetic activity. The
    possibility of adverse perturbation is illustrated by reference to the
    microwave fields used in mobile telecommunications whose signals
    interfere in a non-thermal way with biofunctionality–in particular,
    undermining the efficacy of processes that would otherwise afford
    natural protection against the development of pathology. Therapeutic
    modalities of microwave exposure, on the other hand, are illustrated
    using the example of microwave resonance therapy–which can be
    considered as an electromagnetic version of acupuncture, and as an
    example of ‘quantum medicine’–whose normalising effect on a wide
    range of pathologies is striking, and which affords a novel
    alternative to conventional pharmacological interventions.

    Biophysical aspects of cancer–electromagnetic mechanism.

    Hypothesis of coherent vibration states in biological systems based on
    nonlinear interaction between longitudinal elastic and electric
    polarization fields with metabolic energy supply was formulated by
    Frohlich. Conditions for excitation of coherent states and generation
    of electromagnetic fields are satisfied in microtubules which form
    electrical polar structures. Numerical models are used for analysis of
    Frohlich’s vibration states in cells. Reduction of activity and of
    energy production in mitochondria, and disintegration of cytoskeleton
    structures by phosphorylation on the pathway of cancer trasformation
    can diminish excitation of the Frohlich’s vibration states and of the
    generated electromagnetic field, which results in disturbances of the
    interaction forces between cells. Interaction forces between cancer
    cells may be smaller than interaction forces between healthy cells and
    cancer cells as follows from numerical models. Mechanism of malignity,
    i.e. local invasion, detachment of cancer cells, and metastasis, is
    assumed to depend on the electromagnetic field.

    Consciousness enigma: the “hard problem”–binding problem
    entanglement, “extra ingredient” and field principle.

    Lipkind M.
    Unit of Molecular Virology, Kimron Veterinary Institute, Beit Dagan,
    Israel. lipkind@macam.ac.il

    The “Hard problem” of consciousness relates to the perplexing
    emergence of consciousness as a result of the brain activity. The
    binding problem concerns separate processing of perceived data in
    functionally and topographically segregated cortical areas and
    functional integration of such locally disjoined operations into
    coherently perceived images and events. The existing field-grounded
    theories of consciousness fall into two groups: (i) those based on the
    physical (electromagnetic) field, and (ii) those grounded on
    autonomous fields irreducible to the established physical
    fundamentals. The critical analysis of the existing theories results
    in formulation of the extra ingredient and a novel irreducible
    field-based theory of consciousness.

    Physical properties of biophotons and their biological functions.

    Chang JJ.
    Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 100101 Beijing,
    China. changjj@ibp.ac.cn

    Biophotons (BPHs) are weak photons within or emitted from living
    organisms. The intensities of BPHs range from a few to several hundred
    photons s(-1) x cm(-2). BPH emission originates from a de-localized
    coherent electromagnetic field within the living organisms and is
    regulated by the field. In this paper based on the experimental
    results of Poisson and sub-Poisson distributions of photocount
    statistics, the coherent properties of BPHs and their functions in
    cell communication are described. Discussions are made on functions
    which BPHs may play in DNA and proteins functioning including the
    process of DNA replication, protein synthesis and cell signalling and
    in oxidative phosporylation and photosynthesis.
