Physical basis of adverse and therapeutic effects of low intensity

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.

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.
Unit of Molecular Virology, Kimron Veterinary Institute, Beit Dagan,
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.
Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 100101 Beijing,
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.
