The Bios Materials Research
Invites your participation in a 1-Day Symposium on
The Role of E&M and Water in Health: Scientific exploration of devices used in health and healing, and how we can quantify and utilize “healing” energy.
Room 189 Materials Research Laboratory
Background: There has been an explosive increase in the number of unconventional electromagnetic devices entering the market that purport to address a host of medical ailments or to augment “wellness”. Some have been subjected to placebo-controlled clinical studies; many have not. Some medical practitioners ask if the fields emitted from such devices are truly “safe”. Manufacturers of these devices are seeking help from us to learn what are the fields emanating from the devices they have created. Some are seeking assistance to understand how and why they seem to work. Some are “imprinting” a signal of some kind into liquids – water, alcohol, saline or mineral solutions – that have had profound healing effects in humans and animals; some solutions have shown promise for use in agriculture. Yet, it is unclear how these solutions have been altered.
Faculty at the Materials Research Institute at Penn State, in collaboration with faculty at Arizona State University, the University of Arizona, and Hershey Medical Center, are beginning to investigate the effects of “healing energy” – whether from devices or actual healers – on physical materials (water, solutions, silicon, etc.), plants and cell cultures, thereby eliminating complications from placebo responses that cloud interpreting the effects on humans. By examining the fields (electric, magnetic, acoustic) from devices and their effect on living systems and the materials comprising those living systems, we seek to gain a better understanding of these devices and how they may bring about healing or improved health in humans.
Goal: We seek to build a community of science professionals who are willing to take a closer look at the evidence for a new understanding of what constitutes “the human body” and what it takes to heal and enhance health from a magnetoelectric/energetic, rather than biochemical, perspective. This investigation holds promise for applications outside of the realm of human health, including possible applications in agriculture, materials manufacturing and energy producing technologies.
