|3. HUMAN ENERGY FIELD (HEF) -- SCIENTIFIC
We are products of our western
scientific heritage. This has hindered our growth into full awareness

We may not be able to explain the phenomena with the existing theories.
New theories must be postulated to cover all of the knowledge. New
must be designed and performed until we get agreement between
and new mathematical proof. Then the new theories may be accepted as
laws. When we finally incorporate these new laws into our daily life,
will begin to see ourselves differently.

science ready to embrace new perspectives, theories, and realities?
The study of the human energy field (HEF) owes a
of gratitude to Luigi Galvani, an Italian physiologist whose
in the 1700's led to the discovery that electricity may result
chemical action. This marked the first time science recognized that
might exist as waves capable of traveling over distances. Before this
only static electricity was recognized and described.
In the early 1800's, Michael Faraday
Clerk Maxwell proposed a new type of physical electromagnetic
that could not be described by Newtonian physics. This lead to the
of a field, which was described as a condition in space that has the
of producing a force. Each charge creates a disturbance or a condition
around it, so that the other charge, if present, feels the force. Thus
their Field Theory; the concept of a universe filled with fields

In 1920, physicists asked nature a
nature answered with a paradox. Physicists somehow knew that paradox
is part of the intrinsic nature of the subatomic world. So they set
up an experiment which proves that light is a particle. A small change
in the experiment then proved that light is a wave. We thus moved
based on the concept of both/and; rather than the old idea of either/or.
At the turn of the twentieth century, Max

packets", called quanta. These light quanta are accepted as
particles. A particle is an energy packet. On the subatomic level,

Rather it shows tendencies to exist.
Physicists found that particles can
be both waves and particles. In effect, they are saying there is really
no such thing as a thing. What they used to call things, are really
or paths that might become events. The universe is thus defined as a
of wave-like patterns of interconnectedness, a dynamic web of
energy patterns, a dynamic, inseparable whole that always includes the
observer. We are not separated parts from the whole. We are the whole.
The works of Pribram and Bohm combine

by interpreting frequencies from another dimension, a realm of
patterned primary reality that transcends time and space. The brain is
a hologram, interpreting a holographic universe." (The Holographic
Paradigm, by Ken Wilber 1982)
In his book, "The Implicate Order," Dr.
David Bohm says that primary physical laws cannot be
by a science that attempts to break the world into parts. He writes of
what he calls an "implicate enfolded order" which exists in
unmanifested state, and is the foundation on which all manifest reality
rests. This manifest reality is "the explicate unfolded order."
Bohm suggests that the holographic view of the universe is the
point of understanding the implicate enfolded and the explicate
orders. The hologram concept holds that every piece, however small, is
an exact representation of the whole, and can be used to reconstruct

effects on our scientific attitudes and our personal lives.
Wilber says,"For several years, those
in human consciousness have been speaking wistfully of the 'emerging
paradigm'", an integral theory that would catch all the wonderful
of science and spirit. Here, at last , is a theory that marries biology
to physics in an open system: the paradoxical borderless paradigm that
our schizophrenic science has been crying for. It is appropriate that

skill of moving this Qi and working with it. Practitioners use mind
to move and control the Qi in order not only to improve health and
but to enhance awareness, psychic powers, and spiritual development.

Ph.D., appears in the 1996 edition of Alternative Therapies. Also "The
Effect of Qigong on Human Body Functions" from the Fifth International
Symposium on Qigong, Shanghai, China;1994:179, by Sancier. Larry
Dossey, M.D. also documents nonlocal events in "The Reach of The

The practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine
is based on the premise that the Qi (ch'i, chi, or vital energy) of the
body must be strong and in balance in order for the person to enjoy
health. During the last ten years in China, there are hundreds of
scientific papers written on qigong in relation to its medical
There are an additional 837 abstracts published from international
on the subject. More than half that number are available in English,
thus accessible to Westerners.

physician of both Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine, teaches
his combination of the ancient form of qigong -- with some changes --

Xin Qigong (YXQ). It is estimated that over 60,000 people in China
practice qigong daily to maintain their health and achieve longevity. A
growing number throughout the world joins in this practice. Dr. Yan Xin
has conducted many scientific experiments in China. Emitting external
Dr. Yan Xin has caused measurable changes in the properties of several
types of living and non-living materials. During the last ten years, he
has conducted experiments in three major categories based on
1. The investigation of the nature of externally
Qi by the use of detectors and sensors of analytical instruments.
2. The monitoring and measurement of changes in
parameters and tissues of humans and other living organisms during the
emission of external Qi.
3. The monitoring and measurement of changes in
parameters and tissues of humans and other living organisms during the
circulation of internal Qi.
4. The study of the effect on cancer cells and
types of bacteria in vitro with the application of external Qi.

The study of traditional Chinese medicine centers
the concept of the vital force or Qi as being not only within the human
body, but in all living things. This Qi flows through the meridians of
the human body to exchange, via the acupuncture points, with the Qi in
the environment. Thus, the Qi of humans (the human energy field or

HEF Scientific Theory -- Conclusion
Our Newtonian world of solid concrete objects is
and permeated by a fluid world of radiating energy. It is constantly
and changing; an ocean of dancing, spinning, flashing particles of
energy, and information. Our linear way of thinking, seeing, and
needs to expand to accommodate this new reality. It is time
new paradigm, or model, of science, reality, and consciousness. It
is time to bridge the gaps between science and alternate science,
and metaphysics, and the external scientific experiment and the inner
experience. This may well begin with the unification of the concepts of
mind, energy, and consciousness. Using our minds to study energy, we
simultaneously define consciousness as one and the same.

We must practice this wholistic experience in order to recognize it.
