It has become clear that the so-called “paranormal” phenomena really exist. Instead of
continuing doing endless series of experiments which must offer (statistic) proof of
psychic phenomena, it is high time now to gain insight into these phenomena
themselves.82 For example: What in our body functions as an “interface” in telepathy
and clairvoyance and how does it do this? Various indications exist that our pineal gland
functions as an intermediary between the so-called “higher-dimensional” (spiritual) and
the space-time (physical) world of experience. As such, our pineal gland could play a
role as an intermediary in phenomena like telepathy and clairvoyance.28-47 This led us
to the question: in which way does the pineal gland contribute to the (internal)
communication between our space-time- and higher-dimensional world of experience?
Combining a multitude of biological, physical, geological, technical and spiritual
literature we have designed a hypothesis of the pineal gland as a “modem” between
our matter-filled world of space and time (the total of what we experience through our
five senses) and the Dirac Sea1 which contains the higher dimensions, which we
perceive as the inner, spiritual world: the total of intuitive, inspirative and so-called

“paranormal”, extrasensory experiences and also dreams. Most of this hypothesis still
needs to be tested experimentally. Our hypothesis describes the composition and
functioning of the interdimensional communication mechanisms in the pineal gland:
The information carriers in the Dirac Sea1-8 are scalar waves (or torsion waves, see
1.2).9-11, 83-91 These scalar waves can carry a telepathic message outside of space
and time from person A to person B who are inside the space-time continuum. How
does the transmission of information take place from the space-time continuum to the
higher dimensions and vise versa? Scalar waves are able to pass on information (e.g. a
telepathic message), coded as a frequency distribution, to the space-time continuum by
modulating static electric and magnetic fields with these frequencies.12-14 Inside the
pineal gland static electric fields exist in the form of synapse and membrane potentials
and in the form of the field which exists between the Earth’s surface and the
ionosphere. Static magnetic fields are present in the form of the Earth’s magnetic field
which penetrates our brain, and probably also in the form of a weak magnetic field
around the magnetite particles in the pineal gland. Changes in the magnetic or electric
field inside the pineal gland cause corresponding depolarisations leading to action
potentials in its neurons (pinealocytes), which send these to other brain centres which
decode (interpret) the information.15-23
Inversely, the pineal gland is able to carry over information arriving from other parts of
the brain in the form of action potentials and chemical messages (like hormones), to
the Dirac Sea in the form of scalar waves (see 2.3.2). In this process information is
encoded as frequency distributions in scalar waves. The pineal gland can produce scalar
waves by e.g. combining electromagnetic waves of equal wavelengths in certain ways
(see 2.3.3).9-11 The following kinds of electromagnetic waves are available to the
pineal gland to produce scalar waves from:
1. ELF waves. Neurons in the pineal gland and in other locations of the brain generate,
by their action potentials, electromagnetic waves in the ELF (Extremely Low Frequency,
0-100 Hz) radio range, which are often coherent for groups of neurons (which makes
the registrating of an EEG possible).24
2. Biophotons (see 1.1) are a weak light field in and around cells, generated by
biomolecules (especially DNA), with wavelengths of 200 to 800 nm (ultraviolet to
infrared). The biophoton field has a laser-like, coherent quality and probably carries
holographic information.25-27 The microscopically small calcite- and (hydroxy-)apatite
crystals could play a role in the generation of scalar waves from the ultraviolet part of
the biophoton field.

Various indications exist that our pineal gland functions as a intermediary between the
space-time- and higher-dimensional worlds of experience.28-47
Our problem is: in which way does the pineal gland contribute to the (internal)
communication between our space-time- and higher-dimensional worlds of
experience?
The aims of this literature study are:
1. Building a bridge between science and spirituality.
2. Understanding with the mind as well as with the intuition, how communication takes
place between the space-time- and higher-dimensional worlds of experience.
3. Forming a theoretical starting point for experimental research (testing of the

hypothesis).
4. Developing this hypothetical base and the results of the experimental investigations
into a base for the (refinement of) applications like:
- Training methods for the human pineal gland as an interdimensional communication
organ.
- Psychotherapeutic methods for the treatment or, in better terms, positive
transformation ofdisorders like psychosis and autism, in which the interdimensional
“modem” function of the pineal gland is disturbed.
This booklet is the report of an interdisciplinary literature study and a starting point for
experimental research and (further) development of abovementioned and probably
more applications. Our hypothesis is a preliminary answer to abomentioned problem
but needs to be tested for the most part.
In the following description we do not pretend to be stricty scientific. What we strive
for, however, is an integration of science, technology and spirituality, connecting and at
the same time critical. Based on our inner experiences and motivation we will venture
outside the bounderies of modern-day science. We will work in a nomadic way in the
sense that we will visit many disciplines in the scientific, spiritual and technological
field, making unexpected and new connections among the information of these various
fields.The following is an account and description in which you will see the building
process of a much-encompassing hypothesis of the functioning of our pineal gland as a
“modem” at the interface of our physical world of space and time and the higherdimensional world of subtle energy and information.
Much experimental, scientific research has demonstrated that the pineal gland is a
finely sensitive neuronal and endocrine regulating organ which is able to communicate
by, among other things, neuronal electrical activity and by a variety of hormones of
which some are psychoactive.28-35, 48-51 What makes the pineal gland unique among
the soft tissue organs are the microscopic spheres (“brain sand” grains) inside its cells,
which consist of concentrical layers of needle-shaped calcite, apatite and magnetite
crystals.52-61 The latter are sensitive to changes in the strength and direction of the
Earth’s magnetic field.21, 52-56 What the relation is among the (psychoactive)
hormones, the electrical neuronal activity and the various crystals has, as far as we
know, never been described. However, publications exist about these elements
seperately and about the relation between the psychoactive hormones and eddy
currents induced in the brain by environmental factors on the one hand and inner (e.g.
clairvoyant) images in the waking state and dreams on the other hand, including the
so-called “out-of-body experiences”.16-22 The function of the brain sand grains is still
unknown, except for the fact that their sizes and amount have no relation with human
age, in contrast to what has long been thought.57
We started to suspect that the total of these elements (or part of it) form a
communication mechanism by which the pineal gland functions as our “modem”
between the space-time- (thus physiological-) and higher-dimensional worlds.

Various systems of knowledge point out or indicate that the pineal gland is our “switch
box” between the higher dimensions and the space-time continuum.1-3, 28-47, 62-71

Similar teachings can be found in Taoism. The chakras represent levels of biological.

These induce electric eddy currents in the brain. 71 The vacuum in this case is not meant as a space from which all air has been removed. They form a continuous spectrum of wavelengths from 200 nm (ultraviolet) to 800 nm (infrared). This is one of the forms of information which is carried . 63 In quantum mechanical as well as in astrophysical models often more dimensions are formulated than space-time (which contains four dimensions): sometimes 5 or 6. 64. between DNA molecules. especially in the electrically instable temporal lobes.25-27 Biophotons serve as a communication medium between cells or.2). rotating) artificial magnetic fields.

It is possible that the optically clear calcite and apatite crystals in the pinealocytes have a role in the detection of interference patterns in the biophoton field. Waves are oscillations: rhythmic fluctuations with a frequency. A second Tesla coil can receive this wave. also those of the pineal gland contain biophotons. As a variation to this. DNA could be a very sensitive antenna for the interference patterns in the biophoton field as its size (3. because of their small sizes (10 to 20 by 100 to 200 nm). which two vectors should become zero: the direction of the electric field. cells and intruding organisms in the form of interference patterns. 4. arising from the combination of two electromagnetic waves which cancel each other by reducing their vectors to zero. in the context of Albert Einstein’s theories of relativity) or vibrations of time. Whittaker (in his papers in 1903 and 1904) considered every (scalar) potential (like a point charge or even the gravitation field of the Earth) as a combination of numerous pairs of harmonically related waves traveling in opposite .4 Å between the base pairs. Scalars in general (not necessarily scalar waves) are quantities without a direction. Scalar waves however. that in this way Daphnia plankton organisms keep a certain distance to each other. 2. Besides this. DNA is able to practically polarize light (“squeezing”) when it passes in between the base pairs through the molecule. These are called “vectors” because they have a direction in the space-time continuum. In 1999 Rick Andersen described 7 types of scalar waves or 7 theories about their nature in his article on the World Wide Web10: 1. the biophoton field possibly carries holographic information about the structure of organelles. Seven theories exist about their nature and origin. The mathematician E.T. of the magnetic field or the direction of propagation (Poynting Vector) of the two electromagnetic waves.

The oscillation takes place between the Earth’s surface and the bottom side of the ionosphere (the upper layer of air). In the first two cases the two electromagnetic waves can propagate together in the same direction. The scalar wave as a rhythmic change in space-time.8 Hz) which encircles the entire Earth with one wavelength.g. 10 Scalar waves are waves with a size but without a direction. like the Schumann resonance (7. the diameter of the DNA helix is 20Å) is very small compared to the wavelengths of the biophotons. Bearden says that the scalar wave can only arise if there is a non-linear mass like a ferrite core or a light-diffracting crystal at their meeting point. For example: radio waves in the ELF range. are outside of the space-time continuum. It is known from experiments by F. a dipole antenna with flat metal plates attached to its free ends. Like all other cells in the body. according to some theories. According to others they are ripples in the space-time continuum itself (fluctuations in gravitiy. Popp et al. scalar waves have been reported which in fact are ELF waves generated by a Tesla coil with their electric and magnetic field oriented in the same plane.A. 3. This theory is from Tom Bearden. Patrick Flanagan describes scalar waves as “weak electrical or electrostatical waves such as those which are emitted by an electrically too short antenna”. electromagnetic waves. in the latter case they must travel in opposite directions. It is not clear.

Abovementioned scalar wave theories are outside the domain of conventional physics. His waves still have tiny transversal components. wave and the scalar wave consist of gravitons (spin 2 quanta) and “super gravitons” (spin 4 quanta) respectively. Scalar waves could be the transmission medium of information between the space-time continuum and the higher dimensions in. The products are combined with each other. wave (photon. This explains why. longitudinal electromagnetic wave which. for example.m. 7. because of the huge distances which their light has to travel before it reaches our eyes and telescopes. Then he does the same with a second pair which has been rotated 90° in phase (cosinus waves) with respect to the first pair. claiming that they cannot be produced experimentally. which is the transmission of information from one to another photon without the passing of time and without crossing a distance. let alone detected with technical equipment. 66 In contrast. independently of their distance and without taking time.2. In a later publication (November 1998) Tom Bearden states about scalar waves (summarized): One transversal e. wave. 5. scalar waves carry information in their frequency distribution (spectrum) and are detected and decoded in our pineal gland due to their . He claims he can produce such waves approximately. Rick Andersen states that for the (theoretical) production of a scalar wave four (transversal) electromagnetic waves are needed. according to him.63 A requirement for quantum teleportation is that the two photons are paired. spin 1 quantum) and its phase-conjugated replica (anti-photon. hundreds or even thousands of years ago.

The same holds for sound waves and chemical signals like smell and taste substances (and hormones). According to Bearden the longitudinal e. 6. In his model he combines two sinus waves which are vibrating in counter-phase with respect to each other and which are traveling in opposite directions. This wave has no direction of propagation.

between the higher dimensions and the space-time continuum. this could indicate a selectivity for ultraviolet light with wavelengths of 200 nm or shorter.25-27 In this case these crystals could produce paired biophotons specifically from 200 nm (UV) light by birefringence. . thus exist right through one another.2) and if they stay seperated they can be involved in quantum teleportation (transmission of information from one photon to the other). which are polarized perpendicularly to each other (in the direction of 2 crystal axes). which describe the emission and reception aspects respectively of the quantum communication inside the pineal gland.48. .10 This is a hypothesis of the pineal gland as a mediator between the space-time continuum and higher dimensions.the weak magnetic fields of the tiny magnetite crystals in the brain sand grains which are inside the pineal gland neurons (pinealocytes). with an electrical potential of 130-270 Volts per meter (V/m). with an electrical potential of 107 V/m.3. This hypothesis has been pictured in a diagram (Figure 3). These paired photons can give rise to a scalar wave when recombined under certain circumstances (see 2.10.12. Magnetite crystals are found in the outer layers of each brain sand grain. 57-61 Considering their small size (10 to 20 by 100 to 200 nm) they can only be birefringent for the ultraviolet part of the biophoton spectrum. can also give rise to a scalar wave.tiny static electric fields which exist in the synaptic gaps of the neurons. 14 In the pineal gland the following static electric fields are present: . has not been determined yet. This length distribution of the microcrystals. which is then transmitted beyond space and time in order to be received and decoded by another pineal gland somewhere else inside the spacetime continuum. In the pineal gland the following static magnetic fields are present: . 63 Non-paired light waves of identical wavelength meeting each other in opposite phase (and opposite propagation direction) and cancelling each other as a consequence of reflection and scattering by intracellular structures. measurable fluctuations are produced in these fields.

If the lengths of the microcrystals will turn out to be non-randomly distributed. In our hypothesis the pineal gland produces scalar waves and encodes these with information from the brain. We assume all dimensions are interwoven. 200 nm is the shortest wavelength found among biophotons up to now. .the Earth’s magnetic field. The microscopical calcite and apatite crystals in the pinealocytes are birefringent to light.the static electric field which exists between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere. 14 Both kinds of energy fields are inside the pineal gland and are generated by the pineal gland itself as well as by the Earth. The numbers before the paragraphs refer to the subsequent steps in the diagram. This modulation principle is applied in recent years in scalar wave detectors. The same could happen.

Scalar waves function as carriers of information and exist outside or at the boundary of the space-time continuum. Serotonin. The melatonin here is quickly converted into mentioned psychoactive substances. which is carried by the scalar waves as a frequency distribution (spectrum) is converted by our brain into action potentials which are distributed in time. The right side of the diagram shows how the pineal gland generates its output and passes it on to the Dirac Sea. In certain circumstances (vacuum fluctuations?) they can influence the space-time continuum in the following step. The left side of the diagram shows the input into the pineal gland from the Dirac Sea and the processing of this input. as will clarified in the following step. One or more subsequent action potentials: pulses (peaks) of electrical potential variation with an amplitude of ca. The scalar waves exist in the quantum vacuum. This modulation principle is used in scalar wave detectors in recent years. also a psychoactive hormone produced by the pineal. The input into as well as the output from the pineal gland in this hypothesis are scalar waves. Scalar waves exert this influence by modulating static electric and magnetic fields. which in turn are decoded or interpreted.12 The neurons of the pineal gland function as microscopically small scalar wave detectors.12 Both kinds of energy fields exist inside the pineal gland and are generated by the pineal gland itself and by the Earth. 3.72-74 In this way the information.

The output can be found in the upper right corner of the diagram. 63 2. through the intermediate substance melatonin into the psychoactive substances 5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamin (5meo-DMT). 5meo-DMT. In the following ways these psychoactive substances open the door for our consciousness to an experiential world beyond the conditionings which otherwise keep us in the purely physical-sensory experience of the space-time continuum which contains matter: 6. Abovementioned fluctuations in the static electric and magnetic fields in the pineal gland’s space cause the depolarization of its neurons: the inversion of the electrical potential between the inside and outside of the cell membrane. then follow the arrows around the periphery of the diagram.Following is the description of the subsequent steps in the “computer modem” function of the pineal gland. These also stimulate the conversion of the hormone serotonin (5HT) produced by the pineal gland. which is similar to what happens when the static fields are modulated by scalar waves. in the brain.9-14. Begin at: “start here: input” (upper left corner). dimethyltryptamin (DMT) and pinolin. The pinealocytes pass these signals on through their axons to the thalamus (top of the brain stem) which in turn passes them on to other brain centers where the signals are processed.20 Thus measurable strength fluctuations arise in these fields. Description of the steps: 1. DMT and pinolin occupy the serotonin receptors which are present in the postsynaptic membranes of serotonergic neurons at many locations in the brain. Not only action potentials are caused by the electrical and magnetical field strength fluctuations. 22 It has been observed in human subjects at night that melatonin disappears from the blood when they are exposed to changing external magnetic or electric fields. is the precursor of .20.

3)27 Because of the role which has been assigned to biophotons in the origin of our consciousness. The pineal gland not only receives scalar waves but also emits them as will be explained in the remaining steps. birefringent microcrystals of calcite. In combination with many photoactive substances in the cell the DNA produces light of a very low intensity: the biophotons.2527 The squeezing process can be one of the ways to prepare the light to produce scalar waves (see 2.31 This causes a change in biophoton emission (see 2.63 These (sometimes) paired photons can result in scalar waves when recombined in the following way: 10.25-27 7. 58-61 Because of the small sizes (10 to 20 by 100 to 200 nm) of these crystals the UV waves will pass through them.48-50. sufficient biophotons are present. which also can lead to the following effect: . 10 Squeezed ultraviolet (UV) light waves can be split into two paired. They penetrate into the cell’s nucleus and easily glide in between the base pairs in the DNA molecule. DMT and pinolin have a size and shape which are very similar to the bases in the DNA.2 Experiments with human subjects who ingested DMT (present in the Ayahuasca herbal extract or in certain mushrooms) have demonstrated that they perceived a similar (inner) world. scalar wave theory No. also this change in biophoton emission could lead to an altered state of consciousness.25-27 Electromagnetic waves (photons) in the ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) radio range which are produced by he collective electrical activity (action potentials) of neurons inside and outside the pineal24 also can meet each other in opposite phase and cancel each other at great distances from the brain (and probably in combination with the Earth’s Schumann resonance waves of 7. with properties which makes them suitable for communication. It squeezes light waves which pass in between the base pairs. but light waves (visible and infrared) with longer wavelengths will move around them. carbonate-apatite and hydroxyapatite which are present inside the brain sand grains in random orientations. a process which is called “intercalation”. 8. This is similar to what happens with light which passes in between the elongated molecules of a lense of polaroid sun glasses.28-35 5meo-DMT.9.9. The occupation of the serotonin receptors causes a complex pattern of electrical brain activity which accompanies and altered state of consciousness. It virtually polarizes the light.3.2. 25-27 The emitter as well as the receiver of light is the DNA.29-34 This may be a world of scalar wave fields which exists at a higher-dimensional level. if they have the same wavelength and if they are in opposite phase. not only within the space-time continuum but also toward higher dimensions. 10. The UV waves pass through the optically clear. 28-35 Thus we can see through the thin membrane of space-time into the Dirac Sea. However. consistent between subjects.8 Hz). interwoven with the space-time continuum and its matter. In this way our brain is taken out of its usual programming and conditioning after which our perception extends itself into worlds which exist beyond the veils of this programming and conditioning and thus beyond the boundaries of space and time.2. After processing of light waves (like in steps 8 and 9 and possibly in other ways) they can cancel each other when they meet. colors and geometrical shapes after which they met elements like elf-like beings and bizarre machines. They went through a layer of light effects.melatonin. 7). perpendicularly polarized photons in te following way: 9. For the UV waves the crystals will function as beamsplitters: from 1 incident polarized or squeezed light ray they will produce 2 exiting light rays which are polarized perpendicularly.

Control groups will be formed by subjects who can only phantasize this ability or who do nothing. as can be experienced by the human being. MRI scans of the head are needed which show the exact location of the pineal. the two photons are generated from one photon by a beam splitter.75-79 Such a device may be present at a university or university hospital. Simply said. healing. which is located deep inside the brain. A. 36. They can be built inexpensively (in the order of US$ 50 of materials per channel).9. which can be as large as 1 cm. In practice there can be a large inter-individual variation in the form and position of the brain in the skull. telepathy. First of all. 10. which can differ from individual to individual. can be carried over from one photon to the other which can be at any distance from the first photon. For measurement of the pineal’s magnetoencephalogram a multichannel SQUID neuromagnetometer is needed. 3.83-91 Torsion fields have been demonstrated experimentally by Russian scientists. 10 This takes over the information (as a frequency distribution) which was carried by the biophotons and by the ELF radio waves (as polarization directions and frequency distributions. For the scalar wave measurements around the head 3 types of scalar wave detectors will have to be built and tested.11. without any loss of time. generators and reflectors. during and after clairvoyant readings. including interference patterns and even holograms). 39. 63 Since recently quantum teleportation can be conducted technically with paired photons. 9. The expenses of measuring hours still need to be examined. B.3. 69 Without crossing any distance in space and without any loss of time a polarization direction. In this way the information from the neuronal networks and from the inside of the brain cells travels into higher dimensions beyond space and time. near-death experiences.2-8. 14 The scalar or non-hertzian field phenomena are called “torsion fields” in Russia.2. Quantum teleportation may occur often inside the pineal gland which is equipped with photon-squeezing DNA and birefringent crystals. 1 to photon No.2). Thus our brain may transmit information through its pineal gland to the Dirac Sea by means of scalar waves. The torsion field detectors (as well as generators and reflectors) can be built for the same low expenses. In order to direct the equipment and to calculate the single current dipoles in space from the magnetoencephalogram of the pineal gland. Teleportation takes place through the so-called “hyperspace” which exists as part of the Dirac Sea. The pineal gland has a . in order to be carried to a receiver (another individual’s pineal gland) somehwere else in the space-time continuum. Thus a multichannel SQUID magnetometer needs to be located and used. Building diagrams are on the Internet. in human subjects who can go into this experience without the help of psychoactive drugs.12. 2: scalar waves? 12. after which they are allowed to travel away from each other over a great distance. “Something” in hyperspace carries over information from photon No. 64-71 In a non-invasive way scalar waves from the pineal gland will be measured alongside its electrical activity before. The two electromagnetic waves disappear from the space-time continuum and in the Dirac Sea or at its boundary with the space-time continuum a scalar wave arises (see 2. The Dirac Sea and the scalar wave fields inside it are the stage on which phenomena like clairvoyance (reading). 41-46. for example. who have developed numerous torsion field detectors. Distance does not matter. “out-of-body” experiences. inspired messages and teleportation take place. multichannel SQUID neuromagnetometry will be tested for its ability to registrate weak magnetic signals originating from the electrical activity of the pineal gland.

Research at the HeartMath Institute (HMI) in California has demonstrated that psychological and physical health are promoted most if harmony exists between the EEG.diameter of only a few millimeters. will be examined. the project is expected to lead to (refinement of) training methods for the development of the pineal gland as our interdimensional communication organ. this study is expected to be of importance to parapsychology (increased insight in the brain physiology of paranormal phenomena). present and future exist alongside each other. If these relationships are found these will be an indication for the exchange of information at the quantum level inside the pineal gland between the Dirac Sea (higher dimensions) and the space-time continuum.84. blood measurements of the psychoactive substances serotonin. If it turns out unfeasible.80 Daniel Winter in the USA has pointed out the importance of harmony between these parameters and the magnetic micropulsations (Schumann resonance) of the Earth. Before the duration and cost of total measuring time can be estimated it is necessary to find out if the multichannel SQUID magnetometer can pick up signals from the pineal gland. It will also be interesting to perform abovementioned measurements (with and without the experiments) inside torsion field reflectors. 5meo-DMT. in which the speed of light c (ca.28-34 This research will be aimed at finding a possible relationship between frequency distributions of the scalar waves. Torsion field reflectors for human subjects have been used for telepathy experiments in which it has been found that ca. DMT and pinolin will be interesting alternatives. Besides this. 85 These form a technically created Kozyrev space. In the Kozyrev space. however. in Kozyrev space past. 30 % is received during and ca. to psychiatry (increased insight in the origin of hallucinations and autism) and to (ethno)pharmacology (increased insight into the effect of mentioned psychoactive hormones). The Kozyrev space is in fact everywhere. 30 % is received 7 hours after emission. but has different properties than the Einstein-Minkovsky space (abovementioned space-time continuum). The measurements A and B will be tested for correlation with each other and with the experimental variables. mentioned physiological parameters and mentioned experimental variables. an international neuromagnetometry expert at the University of Helsinki in Finland. Probably no one has attempted to measure the pineal in this way yet. information can travel with velocities up to infinite. A multichannel SQUID is needed in order to measure the activity of a structure as deep inside the brain as the pineal. The results of abovementioned experiments are expected to provide insight in the functioning of the pineal gland at electrophysiological as well as quantum physical level.88 In Einstein-Minkovsky space only the present exists. ca.000 km/s) is the upper speed limit for information. Prof. using for example ANOVA (analysis of variance). like performing or phantasizing clairvoyant aura readings or doing nothing. was not able to give a definite answer to this question. EKG and the breathing. The experimental study will lead to (refinement) of training methods for development of the pineal gland as an interdimensional communication organ. Further. Riita Hari.66 In this research project as many spontaneous situations of interdimensional information exchange through the pineal gland outside the laboratory as possible. 30 % of the information is received 7 hours before. He discovered that in the . 300. Dr. using biofeedback by means of the measuring equipment and possibly using the torsion field reflectors around the trainee.

In order to aim the equipment at the pineal and to calculate the single current dipoles in space from the magnetoencephalogram of the pineal. For measurement of the pineal’s magnetoencephalogram a multichannel SQUID neuromagnetometer is needed. Probably no one has attempted to measure the pineal in this way yet. Prof. Before the duration and cost of total measuring time can be estimated it is necessary to find out if the multichannel SQUID magnetometer can pick up signals from the pineal gland.9-15 This research will be aimed at finding a possible relationship between frequency distributions of the scalar waves. The torsion field detectors (as well as generators and reflectors) can be built for comparable low expenses. the direct and indirect (mentioned below) physiological parameters and mentioned experimental variables. Figure 1: Measuring points for the pineal gland (indicated bigger than in reality). was not able to give a definite answer to this question. I have visited several scientists in Russia who are doing research on brain. MRI scans of the head are needed which show the exact location of the pineal. In practice there can be a large inter-individual variation in the form and position of the brain in the skull. 2000. A multichannel SQUID is needed in order to measure the activity of a structure as deep inside the brain as the pineal.

A cylindrical torsion field reflector. making clairvoyance in time and space possible. One function of the pineal gland is to set the suprachiasmatic nucleus. It is quite probable that also such a space will induce an altered state of consciousness. 30 % is received during and ca.The same through measurement of the electrical resistance and temprature of hand .28 In EinsteinMinkovsky space only the present exists. My proposal is to perform the follwing measurements: A. 17 Torsion field reflectors around the human subject inducing a subjective experience of the Kozyrev space are interesting for this research into the role of the pineal gland in altered states of consciousness because the pineal gland plays in important role in our perception of time. 24-31 These enhance the subjective experience of Kozyrev space. during and after paranormal activities like aura reading. Skin conductivity at these points with an electroacupuncture measuring device (according to Voll) (1 cylindrical electrode in the hand. B. 300. A magnetically shielded space which (virtually) cancels the Earth’s magnetic field.000 km/s) is the upper speed limit for information. Reflection of laser light by the skin at the points. Inside torsion field reflectors an altered state of consciousness arises because of an altered perception of time. In a cave there will be the added effect of sensory deprivation. for example in case of a jet lag.16. because of magnetic disorientation. 2. however. The Kozyrev space is in fact everywhere. Hiroshi Motoyama. measured with the following device (Figure 2): Figure 2: System for measurement of light reflection of a point on the body. c. b. when this is necessary. during and after staying in: a. in Kozyrev space past. 30 % of the information is received 7 hours before. A cylindrical space (for determining the influence of shape power). ca. like the Earth’s magnetic field. but has different properties than the Einstein-Minkovsky space (abovementioned space-time continuum).1. Variation to abovementioned measurements: .Derivation of the activity of brow and crown chakra after measuring the electric conductivity of allmeridians in the body with the AMI device of Dr. In b (above) measurements (with and without the experiments) inside torsion field reflectors are mentioned. Torsion field reflectors for human subjects have been used for telepathy experiments in which it has been found that ca.3. present and future exist alongside each other. if one would have stayed outside of the reflectors. before. in which the speed of light c (ca. In the Kozyrev space. information can travel with velocities up to infinite. enhancing the experience of the Kozyrev space (see below). 30 % is received 7 hours after emission. On leaving the torsion field reflectors one re-enters the subjective experience of the Einstein-Minkovsky space-time continuum at a point in time in which one would be. the biological clock in our brain. This could a natural cave or an artificial space like a shielded SQUID magnetometry room (not all of them are shielded). Before. 1 point electrode on the measuring point). A magnetically shielded space would be interesting for the study of the pineal gland because of its sensitivity to magnetic fields. .

As a reference electrically connected earlobes could be used (Figure 3). upper) cervical ganglia which have nerve connections with the pineal gland. .5716.bartleby. Measurement of the activity of the pineal gland through the superior (i.e. The position of these ganglia can be found at the web address http://www.reflex zones by the Aurastar 2000 from Germany. which is part of the slow.britannica.

The points (according to the international 10-20 system. Prof. after double FFT. perhaps not necessarily a SQUID magnetometer. Torsion fields are generated by and their spatial shape and strength are dependent on the spin structure of matter and even on the spin structure of the quantum vacuum. These belong or are related to the quantum vacuum (see the pineal gland literature study report). in their research center in Moscow. 2. It can be interesting to record the EEG (electroencephalogram) of several point on the scalp (see http://www.618. Oleg Elistratov. Combining EKG or pulse with the EEG. In order for the neck to be relaxed.It is important that the neck muscles are totally relaxed which could be achieved (if necessary) by massaging the neck just before the measurements. Nikolai A. The Barkenhaus Effect detector which is based on the modulation by scalar waves of a static magnetic field.26. the measurements can best take place with the subject in a supine position. 19 “Torsion field” is the Russian term for what we know in the West as scalar (nonHertzian) field phenomena. see http://faculty. in order to determine heart coherence and. whom I have met in 2000.edu/chudler/1020. converting it into frequency spectra by FFT and into a heart rate variability (HRV) graph.html) are: O1 and O2 (left and right side of the occiput) C3 and C4 (left and right side of the thin cortical zone in between the ears) Fp1 and Fp2 (left and right side of the forehead) Intranasally at the level of the ethmoid bone. However. This state enables us to influence the other physiological parameters in the body. measurements may be taken just above the crown of the so-called “sharp vertex wave” which is an EEG waveform with high amplitudes which occurs at the moment of just falling asleep and at the beginning of an out-of-body experience.com/1096issue/1096lustedbox2.washington.html) and to convert it into frequency spectra using Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT). Russian physicists are already doing research on torsion field since the 40s. like the EEG and the activity of the pineal gland.28 Two present-day torsion field researchers are Prof. he called time-energy flow. 27 Western scalar wave reasearchers already have mentioned the following 3 scalar wave detectors:1. In a state of coherence. 1.3 Torsion fields transport information much faster than light or even at infinite speed. Kozyrev was one of the first torsion field researchers.) as a measure of the subject’s state of love and relaxation.32.18. heart and brain must produce a harmonic series of frequencies. the extent of inluence of the EKG on the brainwaves can be determined. 2 a.sciam. Dr.. Dr. the ocurrence of Phi (1.. b. left and right side. frequency and shape in space. Anatoly Akimov and Dr. What we now know as torsion fields. they have a measurable strength. The Hodowanec detector which is based on the modulation by scalar waves of a . 33 Intuitively I could see that the pineal gland is an important factor in the occurrence of the sharp vertex wave. With a sensitive magnetometer. It is important to also record the EKG (electrocardiogram) or pulse.

Nikolai A. At this moment some engineers and I are already busy building and testing d and e. Akimov and Elistratov mentioned something extremely interesting during our visit: They have measured torsion fields around the heads of humans. electrically driven gyroscope and a sensitive balance. The Caduceus coil detector of which the receiving mechanism is unknown and which is reported to receive scalar waves. the detectors d and e seem the easiest to realize. This has been measured in healers giving a healing session. very similar to biophotons.static electric field. Intuitively I could see that the pineal gland. unless the environment has hardly any torsion fields or the detector is subjected to mechanical shocks (hitting the measuring head on the table?). Kozyrev who considered time an information-carrying energy flow. Its frequency is influenced by torsion fields. Very weak. The Russian scientist Prof. c. however. Kozyrev has developed the following detectors which are still built and used today by many Russian torsion field researchers:3 d. although signals usually travel from the eyes to the pineal and not the other way round. A torsion balance. influenced the retina. A quartz oscillator (inside an IC). The best time would be the hour before sunrise. e. red laser light on abovementioned induction points could stimulate this. Although all detectors can be interesting to build and test.A. He mentioned that various important scientific discoveries and technical inventions in Russia and China had been done by throwing and explaining the I Ching. f. The activity of the pineal gland. With very sensitive light measuring equipment (like a photomultiplyer tube. During the healing session the amplitude of their EEG went all the way down to zero. Interesting is that N. PMT) this could be measurable. This is a contraption including a rotating. The influence can be seen only as long as the torsion field is present. Its electrical resistance is influenced by torsion fields and is measurable in the Wheatstone Bridge. Some strongly psychically gifted persons have a low-amplitude EEG. Totally unexpectedly the I Ching came up with a tubular detector with a positive and negative electrical charge and a membrane in the center. In Russia a scientist told me that this inflow was optimal 8 minutes before sunrise. On his invitation we did an I Ching session for the pineal gland research project. gave rise to very weak light flashes from the retina. For some time already we are busy developing a detector for torsion fields and morphogenic fields. Dr. but the strength of their torsion fields increased. A Wheatstone Bridge with a tungsten wire as variable resistor. This is a complex and big set-up. The effect can stay in the tungsten wire for hours after removing the torsion field. which is the . but strong torsion fields around their head. It is a coil consisting of a wire wound one way and then back against its own direction. thus these will be the first to be used in this research project. simultaneously with their EEG. through its nerve connections with the eyes. which spontaneously came up during a session with I Ching expert B. had written that the Sun emits a time-energy flow which stimulates the development of dissipative structures or life forms. Another I Ching result was that the timing of the measurements was very important. Randolfi in Rotterdam.

the following is the basic design for the detector: Figure 4: Detector (which needs to be developed further) for torsion fields and morphogenic fields (which may be similar?). Besides this. The experimental study will lead to (refinement) of training methods for development of the pineal gland as an interdimensional communication organ. The results of abovementioned experiments are expected to provide insight in the functioning of the pineal gland at electrophysiological as well as quantum physical level.D. The living material can consist of algae in between 2 thin plates which by themselves are electrically neutral. Research at the HeartMath Institute (HMI) in California has demonstrated that psychological and physical health are promoted most if harmony exists between the EEG. Saskia Bosman. Phi only exists in a condition of unconditional.18 Daniel Winter in the USA has pointed out the importance of harmony between these parameters and the magnetic micropulsations (Schumann resonance) of the Earth. EKG and the breathing. universal Love. A membrane of living material is part of the measuring system and generates a weak electrical charge. The hormone production by their pineal gland and its circadian rhythms are disturbed. for example for psychotic patients. is a biologist who studied at the University of Utrecht. . which consists of two parts (3-6 cm diameter).. is essential.. In short.20 Autistic individuals are controlling their receptiveness to external stimuli too much. this study is expected to be of importance to parapsychology (increased insight in the brain physiology of paranormal phenomena). in 1993 at the University of Amsterdam after a research project (1986-1993) resulting in the thesis “Thermal Effects of Laser Light on Tissue Structure”. They often have paranormal experiences like clairvoyance and telepathy but have lost any control over them. from 1979 to 1986 and who received her Ph. etc. The Netherlands.618.. consist of torsion field reflecting material. Ph. In the same period she has conducted brain and consciousness research (unusual ofr The Netherlands) on the functioning of the left and right brain and on the brainwave patterns accompanying altered states of consciousness induced by different forms of meditation.. to psychiatry (increased insight in the origin of hallucinations and autism) and to (ethno)pharmacology (increased insight into the effect of mentioned psychoactive hormones).time yogis do their Sun Prayer. At the other side of the spectrum are autistic children who make little or no contact with their environment because they close themselves to influences (possibly also higher-dimensional) from their environment. He discovered that in the frequency spectra the Golden mean ratio Phi or F = 1. the project is expected to lead to (refinement of) training methods for the development of the pineal gland as our interdimensional communication organ. The information which will be generated by this experimental study may form a basis for new forms of therapy in psychiatry. A new form of therapy could be to train these individuals to use their gift at will instead of suppressing their experiences. They could be trained to open themselves gradually to information from the space-time and higher-dimensional environment without being overwhelmed by it.D. or a thin leaf (or layer from it) from a plant. using biofeedback by means of the measuring equipment and possibly using the torsion field reflectors around the trainee. In both cases subtle-energetic grounding and protection techniques could be of great value. The tube. Further.19 This is why we consider it important the pineal is developed in this state.
