|Subtle energy is used in this context as
used it, that is, to describe a type of energy that is at present not
understood or measurable with today's equipment. This is similar to how
electromagnetism was viewed only 250 years ago. The effects could be
but not directly measured.
The vision of the research team and the
results of the
studies we have conducted so far have attracted eminent scientists
in cutting-edge human energy research. For example, Dr.
William A. Tiller, Professor Emeritus of Stanford University
a pioneering researcher of subtle energy, will be on the IHM research
as they conduct their ground-breaking studies. Dr. Vladimir Poponin,
formerly of the Institute of Biochemical Physics of the Russian Academy
of Sciences and a co-discoverer of the DNA phantom effect, has also
the IHM research team.
For related research that researchers at IHM want
continue, Dr. William A. Tiller and his colleagues at Stanford
University developed a subtle energy detector -- an
Geiger counter-type device -- with which they demonstrated the
existence of an energy field that is not in the electromagnetic
With this special detector, Dr. Tiller demonstrated that this subtle
energy field responds to intentional human focus.
The combination of the instrument that detects
phantom effect and the ultra-sensitive gas discharge detector
two of the most advanced technologies known for the scientific study of
subtle energy. Much of the basic research and the proof that these are
workable technologies has already been completed. These instruments
provide the tools for careful study of subtle energy that will greatly
advance our understanding of ourselves and the world we live in. IHM is
also designing and planning to conduct experiments with a number of
types of detectors as well. A number of studies conducted at IHM have
the effects of subtle energies on
in the conformational states of DNA and the structure of water.

Measuring the Human Subtle Energy Fields
To date, we have monitored electrophysiological
in the body, associated with the progress of an individual's inner
via skin-contact devices like ECG, EEG, etc. This provides some
information but much is lost, especially for the electrical and
processes going on in the body. The important information of a more
field nature is completely lost. The next step is to monitor these
fields in the space adjacent to the body via non-contact devices at
from inches to many feet. Here, one wishes to detect the field shape,
and the polarization present at a grid of points surrounding the body.
To do this properly, for a single field, one needs an array of
of the same basic type (ten or more). The ability to discriminate
increases with the number of detectors in the array.
Individual Detector Types:
(ø) A conventional Langmuir type device
used to measure the electrostatic fields and provides the voltage
in space and time.
(E) A new type of dielectric polarization
we are developing is capable of giving us both the magnitude and
of the electric field in space and time.
(H) Squid detector elements are now available to
measurements of the magnetic fields as a function of space and time.
(A) The magnetic vector potential fields include
an electrodynamic part and subtle parts which we have reason to believe
are associated with the more subtle fields. The Josephson Junctions
in the squid detector have the ability to measure A directly in space
time. Thus, the independent and simultaneous measurement of the
electric, electrostatic and magnetic vector potentials will allow one
gain a measure of the subtle fields.
Research has shown that humans emit photons
least the range from the infrared to the ultraviolet. We
that both the flux and frequency spectra of these photons will shift
upon the actual internal emotional and mental states of the subject.
state photo cells are now available over this entire spectral range.
