Please pardon my unseemly delay; things here have been very hectic, and I've just not been able to answer many of the E-mails and responses. My sincere apologies.
Very interesting experiments, and I believe you have stated the interpretation of the results correctly.
Probably the most informative thing I can say would be the following somewhat lengthy thing:
First, dealing with the physics.
I believe there is a
new revolution in physics that is just being born, based on the novel
work by Michael Leyton. (Michael Leyton,
Generative Theory of Shape,
Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 2001. Leyton develops a generative theory of
shape that has two properties regarded as fundamental to
transfer of structure and maximizing recoverability of the
generative operations. These two properties are particularly important
in the representation of complex
shape — which is the main concern of the book. Leyton has originated a
new object-oriented geometry which includes the Klein geometry as a
subset. The primary goal of the theory is the conversion of complexity
into understandability. For this purpose, a mathematical theory is
presented of how understandability is created in a structure. This is
achieved by developing a group-theoretic approach to formalizing
transfer and recoverability.
The fields and potentials are ordered (e.g., as a function of radial distance from the charge, and a function of time of persistence of the charge).
So I think that discovery by Leyton is as important as was the original prediction of broken symmetry by Lee and Yang, and its proof by Wu et al.
Next, dealing with consciousness.
In quantum field theory, neither the longitudinal photon nor the scalar (time-polarized) photon can be individually observed; yet the combination of the two is observed as the instantaneous scalar potential. So whenever one has a scalar potential (common voltage), one has a "coupling" operation involving "pairing" between time-polarized photons and longitudinal photons. Comparing to Whittaker's 1903 and 1904 papers decomposing the scalar potential and also decomposing all EM fields and waves, one has to interpret the "pairing" between scalar and longitudinal photons as also a pairing between time-polarized EM waves and longitudinal EM waves. Then everything fits.
Briefly, nothing propagates in 3-space, because nothing can move or change in 3-space alone. All changes must involve 4-space, and hence are nonobservable. The RESULT of the change is observed, since all observation is a d/dt operation imposed on an ongoing 4-spatial process, resulting in an instantaneous frozen 3-snapshot. Of course the process is iterated rapidly (the common photon interaction does it, as can be readily seen). Hence we "see" what we interpret as "propagation" or "movement" in 3-space, but it is actually iteration of successive frozen 3-snapshots, much like a common motion picture film.
First, we point out that a classical "isolated charge" is actually surrounded by a clustering of virtual charges of opposite sign in the vacuum, hence it is a dipolar ensemble. In the ongoing 4-process which cannot be observed a priori, there is a 4-circulation of EM energy connected with that dipolar ensemble, by the broken symmetry of opposite charges. This means that energy from the time domain (scalar photons) interact with the negative charge of the ensemble, being transposed into longitudinal photons which are emitted by the negative charges, but instantly absorbed by the positive charge(s), to be re-transduced into time-polarized photons again.
The point is that what we call "propagation of EM energy through 3-space" (since Poynting and Heaviside independently and simultaneously discovered that concept), is actually the iterative progression of that 4-circulation from 3-space point to 3-space point, successively. It is the circulation process that is being propagated.
In my view, mind operations are time-like. They are totally electrodynamic, but involve scalar photons and time-polarized EM waves on the time axis (in the 4th Minkowski axis, ict, the only variable is t). So mind operations are continually producing longitudinal photons in the tuning brain activity. We should really consider the "fields" in space, prior to interaction with matter, as force-free fields and as longitudinal EM waves involving oscillations in 4-circulation. When such oscillations in 4-space couple to charges (charged matter) in the brain and nervous system, the spin and inertia of the charged particles result in particle precession, which we see as (1) force fields (matter is a component of force, by F = d/dt(mv). The precession of the matter to and fro gives us the so-called "transverse EM waves". These transverse EM waves are force field waves in and of charged matter; they are NOT the actual waves of matter-free spacetime. Maxwell assumed a material ether, and the transverse EM wave theory still assumes that material ether.
Anyway, now we have a coupling between the mind and the charged matter of an associated body. We also know that a change in energy density on the 4th axis is a slight rotation in 4-space, hence makes a projection into 3-space (usually in the virtual state). A coherent series of mind-changes thus produces quantum changes in the physical brain charges, by coherent integration of the charged particles due to their dipolar ensemble nature and to the broken symmetry of opposite charges of that ensemble.
Given this physical input of a real physical signal in the brain, representing the "intent" of the mind, a series of these signals can be shown to induce physical response/action, by standard servomechanism theory. So the body makes physical changes, because of the induction of real signals by the special process of the mind-matter coupling mechanism described.
As a change occurs in the body, it also is a small rotation in 4-space. Specifically, it is a rotation in the direction of the time axis, so it makes a tiny (virtual state) projection on the time-axis (in the mind actions domain). A coherent series of such virtual projections integrates into "quantum change" on the time axis (production of scalar photons there). This is the feedback mechanism from the body to the mind, and is the body-to-mind coupling loop.
The time delay in the loop and comparisons of incoming signals by the mind in its realm, leads to an interesting phenomenon. The time-delay gives the sense of existence since many other changes (rotations from the external universe and not the individual's body) occur during that time delay. By comparing its intent signals to the response signals received, the mind operations establish two classes of "external phenomena": One which obeys the intent signals or can be corrected by changes in intent, and those which do not. The first class of mindchanges produces the sense of individualism, the "I", and therefore the personality. The second class of mindchanges produces the sense of "not-me", or the external universe (which does not respond to intent signals from the body directly). So these feedback loops produce the sense of individuality, of "occupying one's own body", and of simultaneously "existing in an external world that does not respond to intent".
That was a brief description of the conscious mind (serial processor's) mind-body loop and sensing.
The unconscious mind is totally conscious, but multiply so, since it is a massively parallel processor. Hence it has many such "individual loops" all at once, down to every cell and every part of every cell.
All mind activities are ongoing on the same time axis, and so during the same time durations. Some connections between these different "entities-minds" exists by a similar integration from virtual to observable state on the time axis, but below the integration of the individual's integration looping.
The result is a sort of "levels of unconsciousness", from the personal unconscious, to that of the family group, to that of the community, to that of the nation, to that of the human species, to that of all-species-on-earth, etc.
Now there does exist the physics for the direct mechanism you are showing in your experiments, I believe. If we insist on Leyton's hierarchies of symmetry, then all the information at the deepest levels -- both for symmetries and asymmetries -- is outfolded from underneath to each new higher symmetry generated.
This means there is indeed a direct interaction between members of a species in one colony or group, and that interaction should be measureable by group characteristics varying due to that communication, when members of the group are violently changed or killed, etc.
In my own work with the Priore-type healing approach, and an extension to it, the Leyton effect means that every cell in one's body actually possesses the infolded "memory" of all the major prior developments of cells in its lineage, right back to the first primitive cells formed on earth. Further, when a cell is damaged, cannot get enough oxygen, and the cellular regenerative system is unable to restore conditions so that the cell gets enough oxygen, it still recognizes the hurting cell as its own, but also recognizes that it must move the cell back toward its anaerobic ancestry, so it can survive without that oxygen. And that is the main action (the actual mechanism) that generates "promotion" of a cancer, once the damage and hypoxia are there for a sufficient period. Since the immune system is also under control of the master cellular control system (the one that Popp studies), as well as the cellular regenerative system being under that control, the order for "promotion" actually comes from the master cellular control system. We are able to describe the process by which the cell dedifferentiates back toward that goal. The first step is of course to go from "grouped cells" under common control back to "individual cells" (which was the anaerobic stage, by and largely. Hence the first major indicator is the loss of central growth control by the promoted (now cancerous) cell. The cell doesn't just "happen to turn into" a cancer cell! It is not just "ordered" to do so, but a physical "engine" comprised of specific spacetime curvatures is formed upon the cell, to physically change it back (physically dedifferentiate it). Actually Becker's work with potentials across otherwise intractable bone fractures is illuminating in that respect, since it was the incoming red blood cells which were first dedifferentiated and then redifferentiate forward on another development line, to first pre-cartilage cells and then to pre-bone cells.
But your experiments have indeed shown that there is a special communication mechanism between members of a species in a community group.
That communication mechanism can be much more rigorously described and modeled, but not in the conventional classical Maxwell-Heaviside EM theory. A higher group symmetry electrodynamics -- such as quaternion EM or O(3) group symmetry EM, capable of also incorporating curved spacetime and vacuum virtual flux interaction --- must be employed.
Hope this helps in your work, and I also hope your presentations either went well or will go well.
P.S. Unfortunately the FCC (old KGB) in Russia has weaponized much of this approach, and several other nations also are either weaponizing it or starting to do so.
One of the "weaponization" goals -- apparently still in the future --- is to be able to directly engineer Jung's collective unconscious. In theory, mind operations and even personalities, memories, etc. can be directly engineered and processed electromagnetically, if the proper higher group symmetry EM is used.
The initial Soviet use was for generating physical diseases directly, by incorporating the "engines" (curvature spacetime patterns) for specific diseases, inside the Whittaker structuring of the scalar potential (field-free potential) or then later inside fields and waves also. All present EM is just a set of "envelopes" comprised of far more fundamental coupled longitudinal EM wavepairs, where each pair is comprised of a time-polarized EM wave (active on the time axis and in the mind realm directly), and a coupled longitudinal EM wave in 3-space. The long "microwave radiation of the former U.S. Embassy in Moscow", e.g., utilized the structuring (engines) inside the field-free potentials. The exposed bodies in those field-free areas were actually in stable field-free potentials. Potentials superpose; so the automatic supposition of the disease-engine-structured scalar potentials diffused their structures through the body simply by superposing with the body's own potentials (on the surfaces of the cellular membranes and everywhere else, even deep inside each cell and on each part of each cell).
The Russian term for this kind of higher group symmetry EM work is "energetics", which has three branches depending upon what is targeted by using the work as a weapon: (1) targeted against inert mass objects and ordinary fields and potentials in them, it is called by the same name, energetics. (2) targeted against living bodies and their ordinary fields and potentials, it is called "bioenergetics". (3) targeted against the minds and mind operations of living entities, it is called "psychoenergetics".
The present status of the development is such that control of a person's mind and perceptions (three examples: Captain's Button, Svoboda, and Hess) can be totally taken over and controlled at a distance, even while that person is accomplishing a highly technical task. In other places we have detailed what happened to those three examples. This capability was originally developed so as to be able to counter one of the special "dead man fuzing" type assets of a small friendly foreign country possessing quantum potential weapons and thus able to counter in that area.
Experimental Studies of
Information Transmission Between the Killed and Survivor Individuals of
the Same Population on Several Species as Representation of the Role of
Consciousness of Biological Species During Evolution
In order to understand how experimentally it would be possible to study
the role of consciousness in the process of evolution we would like
first to propose a hypothesis about the consciousness of the population
of living organisms. According to the hypothesis of F. Crick human
consciousness arises as biological function from interaction between the
neurons of the brain (Crick, 1994). According to hypothesis by V. Norris
consciousness is organizing force, which is involved in the process of
transmitting, receiving and condensing organization to a common pattern;
it is created by information and would act to create information.
(Norris, 1996). We propose a hypothesis stating that any amount of
similar units of living matter, which coexist together in relatively
close physical proximity and interact to each other exchanging matter
and information comprise a bio-informational network. Consciousness
arises as a result of constant information interaction between all units
of such bio-information network and serves as organizing force for it s
units to co-exist and function together as a single formation for more
or less long period of time. (Agadjanian, 1999). This information
exchange includes all known communication channels, like exchange of
matter, chemical signals, physical signals of different nature, as well
as it might involve unknown form of physical communication (Norris,
1998) defined also as novel non-chemical form of signaling (Matsuhashi
et al., 1995) or superweak electromagnetic radiations (Kaznacheev et
al., 1981). Thus any population of living organisms of the same species
from bacteria to human beings which co-exists together in relatively
close physical proximity and function together as a single formation
interacting with environment and surviving for more or less long period
of time has consciousness. This consciousness by analogy has to have
similar characteristics to the phenomenon we rationally aware of as
human consciousness. Consciousness of the population of bacteria
obviously would be much less sophisticated formation than human
consciousness, and consciousness of any number of human beings
accordingly would be much more sophisticated formation than human
consciousness. All these different levels of consciousness including
human consciousness can be examined as different spectrum or separate
closely interconnected components of single global formation the Global
Consciousness of all living matter on Earth, which can also be defined
as Global Energy-Information Network (Agadjanian, 1999). Such hypothesis
would broaden the hypothesis of spectrum of consciousness of K. Wilber
(Wilber, 1977) beyond the boundaries of human perception within the
system of knowledge of psychology, psychotherapy and religion and would
give a new understanding to the hypothesis of Vernadsky (Vernadsky,
1926) and Teilhard de Chardin (Teilhard de Chardin, 1966) about
noosphere. In case of some so-called social biological species like, for
example, ants we can rationally observe some functioning patterns of the
consciousness of local populations. In case of many other biological
species the existence and functioning of consciousness of local
population is not so obvious. However there should be fundamental
similar characteristics of consciousness of all populations of living
creatures. If we can point to the fundamental similarities between the
human consciousness and consciousness of the local populations of all
biological species we might be able to establish a new paradigm for
studying consciousness experimentally.
The interpretation of above experimental results is following. The violently killed individuals transmitted by physical or chemical signals the information about the fact of their violent death and specific information about nature of the deadly factor to the survivors of the same group. Based on this received information the consciousness of this population employed both nonspecific and specific defense mechanisms in order to survive the deadly factor. First, as a nonspecific defense the consciousness of the population increased the speed of reproduction, which was observed in all above experiments. Second, as a specific defense, using the received specific information about the deadly agent, the consciousness of the population activated the specific resistance to this killing factor, which was observed in the last group of experiments. In the last case taking into consideration that the pesticides Phosalon and Plinctran used in experiments on Predatory Mite, Amblyseius fallacis (Garman) as a killing factor were widely used against those species long before the time of the conducting of the experiments, it would be logical to conclude that the insects had already acquired genetic resistance to these specific pesticides and during the experiments consciousness of the population just activated it. But based on above logic we can assume that using any species of insects and completely new never used against them pesticide, it could be possible to establish the fact that mutations necessary to survive this new deadly factor would originate because consciousness of population will receive specific information about this new deadly factor from the killed individuals and would direct a mutations in the next generations towards adaptation to it. But experiments proving this statement could take several years to conduct, that is amount of time comparable to the time usually needed for species to adapt to a new insecticides in the real life.Discussion
Experimental studies of the information transmission between physically
separated groups of living organisms of the same biological species were
conducted before and after the experimental project Feedback . Several
authors reported observing this phenomenon in their studies and gave it
different interpretations (Kaznacheev et al., 1981), (Matsuhashi et al.,
1995), (Heal et al., 2002). Hypothesis about the consciousness of the
local population of the biological species might add new insight to the
understanding of the results of these experimental studies. For example,
it could allow explaining the last studies by Heal and Parsons from
consciousness point of view. In these experiments the Petri dish was
divided into two compartments, connected by a five-millimeter air gap
between the top of the wall and the lid. In one compartment drops of the
bacterium E.coli were placed, together with various antibiotics. When
the other compartment was empty, the bacteria died killed by the
antibiotics. However, if thriving colonies of E.coli were placed in the
other compartment, the first group of bacteria survived. If the gap
between the compartments was sealed, the bacteria in the first
compartment died. Heal and Parsons concluded that the bacteria in the
second compartment must have sent some kind of airborne "survival"
signals to the dying from antibiotics first group of bacteria, which
helped them to survive. But form the point of evolution such explanation
makes only partial sense it attempts to explain what happened but not
why it happened. From the hypothesis of consciousness of the biological
species however the results can be understood completely logically. The
consciousness of one colony of E.Coly with huge dose of antibiotic was
not able to think what to do to survive. When another healthy colony was
put near this dying colony they would together comprise the viable
living network with common consciousness, which had enough information
and resources to be able to figure out how exactly to react to the
threat factor. When the air gap was closed these colonies again become
two separate colonies with separate consciousness and resources
resulting in the death of the colony exposed to antibiotic. Quite
possibly by blocking this air gap not chemical information transmission
was blocked but some unknown weak electromagnetic information
transmission, for which that barrier is impermeable.
The theory of the consciousness of the biological species using specific
and nonspecific mechanisms to maintain its existence in the changing
conditions of the environment and the results of the further experiments
with the similar to discussed above experiments of the project Feedback
could be become the starting point to allow the consciousness of living
matter to be studied thoroughly through reliable and repeatable
laboratory experiments. If we can examine from the consciousness point
of view several global current ecological problems we might be able to
predict the possible effective solutions of them. If we can understand
that by trying to eliminate pests with pesticides or bacteria with
antibiotics we are dealing with intelligent force the consciousness of
those species, which intelligently uses the specific information about
our killing methods to successfully defend itself, we might come to
fundamentally different methods of controlling harm from these species
with much higher efficiency, like, for example, completely eliminating
the key point of enemy defense the killing. Organic farming, for
example, already proved that products can be successfully grown without
use of pesticides and above theory together with results of the new
experiments might make a point for eliminating the use of pesticides in
the world entirely. With the pathogen bacteria and antibiotics the
solution might not be so obvious, but again realizing that we are
dealing with intelligent defense of the consciousness of the species of
bacteria based on the information from the dying bacteria, we might be
able to come to fundamentally different methods of controlling the
bacteria with higher efficiency. Using the same approach we can conclude
the global problem of overfishing arose in the first place from the
wrong methods of killing commercially caught fish on the ships out of
fish natural environment. The consciousness of different fish species
for many millions of years of evolution probably developed methods of
defending its numbers from the threat factors, which mostly killed fish
in the water. The possible solution obviously might be killing all
commercially caught fish in the water.
