G4-li THE TIMES THURSDAY AUGUST 25 1994 HOME NEWS Scientists put ghosts under the microscope BY NICK NlJJTALL REPORTS of ghostly apparitions cannot be dismissed as the rantings of the insane or the work of hoaxers, a senior clinical psychiatrist said yesterday. Professor Ian Stevenson. of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. who has been studying reports of ghosts in Britain and the United States, said the people to whom the dead appeared had normal, healthy minds. He said there appeared to be an explanation for the sightings which defied traditional science. "Evidence for these kinds of experiences are too frequent to be dismissed." said Professor Stevenson. who cited studies claiming that per cent of the population had seen apparitions. The scientist, who has been studying cases dating back forty years in which someone who has died or is about to die appears to a close friend, said that these reports could be checked by scru.tinising death I(}.IS certificates. They could also be checked by carefully controlled interviews with the person and family involved. "Studies of the mentally ill show they are not gifted in the same way. They may hear voices and see people but this is usually related to their mental illness.. . their claims cannot be substantiated," said Professor Stevenson.

Agonists can express biological activity when highly diluted with vigorous mixing This is the case with Isolated perfused guinea-pig (GP) and rat hearts, wtlich react to high dilutions o( various agonists. Yet heart reactivity to either pancieral concentrations Of high dilutions (HD) vanes from animal to animal and season to season. We partially buffered these variations by immunizing the animals (5). When HD were submit1ed to a magnetic field, their effects were inhibited (6and expo background below), suggesting that the molecular signal electromagnetic in nature, therefore possibly transferable via electronic circuitry. We thus designed an amplifier able to perform this function. IS We now present : 1) the further optimization of heart responses. 2)the transmission of several specific biological activities to water samples via an amplifier.

Trondheim 20. august 1994 To delegates at the 2nd Euro-SSE Meeting Exchange of information on homeopathic research We are interested in making contact with researchers and organisations who work with homeopathy, and hope that all you who read this letter will send us a brief sumaryof what you are doing. We will reply to every respons we get. In Norway we have a four year research program on alternativ medisin with 1,5 mil NOK pr year and there are also some other funds for research on homeopathy. Currently there are two homeopathic clinical trials that soon will be published (autum-94) They are on the effect of homeopathic treatment of migrena and tooth extraction. We are now working on two major areas 1. Quality control on homeopathic research projects. This include a long term plan to get homeopaths to become good researchers. 2. Developing a Norwegian database on homeopathic research. To get Information about homeopathic research abroad, we are searching Journals and databases.

Tlf +47-224951 50], and two year economic study. He works in a full time general homeopathic practise with four other homeopaths He is a member of the research bard of the Norwegian Homeopathic Society (NHL). His main responsability is the development of an Norwegian database for research on homeopathy, and research politics. He is also editor of "Hom opatisk Tidsskrift", a quartely journal for public, published by the Norwegian Homeopathic Patientunion [Norsk Homoopatisk Pasientforening, Postboks 412, N-7001 Trondheim, Norway, tlflfax +47-73 52 23 07]. Nowegian database on homeopathic research is set up to, give Norwegian researchers information on good quality research on homeopathy in Norway and abroad. - discover fields where research is needed serve as a tool to evaluate Norwegian homeopathic research projects - contribute information on homeopathic research to others who work for the public awaerness of homeopaty. The database will consist of translated abstracts of homeopathic research projects, mainly on clinical trials and models to explain how homeopathy works. The inclusion criteria will be clearly defined in order to secure a good standard. - - The Norwegian Homeopathic Society (NHL) Storgt. 39, N-0182 Oslo, Norway. Tlf +47 - 22 11 1299.

Suffering fromYou are Gravity got not alone. you down? Gravity and inertia are among the most fundamental amibutes of anyrhmg possessing mass. Bur researchers have never attained a satisfactory understanding of the fundamental nature of gravity. Inertia has proved an even more elusive problem. Ever since Isaac Newton articulated his three laws of motion. sdentists have simply accepted the e:’dstence of inertia as a given: bodies in monOD remain in motion. and those at rest stay at rest, unless acted on by an outsjde force. Bernhard M. Haisch of the Loclcheed Palo Alto Research Laboratory, Alfonso Rueda of Califorrua State Uwversjty at Long Beach and Harold E. Puthoff of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Tex.. think they may at last have a due to the process that gives rise to inertia. That process, Haisch argues. must be connected to gravitation as well, neatly unifying Inertial and gravitanona! mass. the two ways that physicists define the mass of an object.

Peter W. :.w01UU of Los Alamos Na. nonal Laboratory voices far more serious reSer’lfations.

Quantum theory predicts that. on surh tiny scales. random quantum fluctuations roil thr vacuum, creating a soup of virtual particles.

The fossils in quesnon were discovered in Java. one in 1936, the others in the late 1970s. Researchers determmed that the age of the ~lojokerto skull was about one million years old. The Sangiran series-which includes the face and cranial fragments of two hominidswas thought to be as murh as 900.000 years old. These pieces of the past seemed to fall into place in an evolunonary puzzle that emerged dunng the 1960s and 1970s.At that time. archaeologists and paleoantbropologists working In Africa found fossils, those of H. erecrus that were abour two milamong Bone hunters also discovlion years ered stone hand axes from million years ago.

The primary goal of the international Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE)is to provide a professional forum for presentations, criticism, and debate concerning topics which are for various reasons ignored or studied inadequately within mainstream science. A secondary goal is to promote improved understanding of those factors that unnecessarily limit the scope of scientific inquiry, such as sociological constraints, restrictive world views. hidden theoretical assumptions, and the temptation to convert prevailing theory into prevailing dogma. Topics under investigation cover a wide spectrum. At one end are apparent anomalies in well established disciplines. At the other, we lind paradoxical phenomena that belong to no established discipline and therefore may offer the greatest potential for scientific advance and the expansion of human knowledge. The Society encourages such investigations for several reasons that may appeal to different communities. To the research scientist, we commend the intellectual challenge of explaining away an apparent anomaly or seizing the new knew ledge presented by a real one, To the student scientist, we point out that science does not begin with textbooks: it begins with the unknown and ends with textbooks. To the nonscientist, we acknowledge that deep public interest in some of these tOpiCS calls for unprejudiced evaluation based on objective research. To the policy-maker, we pOint out that today’s anomaly may become tomorrow’s technology. International Meetings Annual Society Meetings are held every summer. The first SSE meeting took place at the University of Maryland in 1982, Subsequent meetings have been held at the University of Virginia, Princeton University, Cornell University, Stanford University and elsewhere. Meetings are generally 3 days long and consist of invited lectures, contributed talks and poster sessions selected by a program committee. The first Euro-SSE meeting was held at the Technical University of Munich in 1992 and subsequent meetings will be held every other year. Other regional meetings will be considered in the future. Journal of Scientific Exploration The international Journal of Scientific Exploration (JSE)was established in 1987 to provide a professional forum for the presentation, scrutiny and discussion of scientific research on topics outside the established disciplines of science. JSE provides an unbiased forum for scholarly debate of unconventional and possibly controversial topics. The Journal is published quarterly and includes peer-reviewed research and review articles, essays, book reviews, letters to the editor, columns, meeting abstracts and Society news items. The Explorer Associates and Members of SSE also receive the Society newsletter. The Explorer, that presents short Items, Society news, meeting announcements, etc. Affiliating with the Society Any person who supports the goals of the society may become an ASSOCIATE by filling out the form below and paying the annual dues (which include subscription to the Journal of Scientific Exploration and The Explorer).

IMMUNOPHARMACOLOGIE DE L’ALLERGIE ET DE L’INFLAMMATlON Directeur BENVENISTE WHEN IT’S BECOME TRUE by Jacques Benveniste, MD Director of Research, INSERM, France. I am often asked the question; what will be the consequences of your work if your results are shown to be true? My response is at first epistemological and then technological. The history of science teaches us that a discovery does not "exist" until it has survived two tests: J) Facts, which are most often though not always, especially at the beginning reproducible, must be displayed, If possible within the context of existing theories. When the latter is not the case, the situation is very difficult as it is necessary to change theories, an - exercise repugnant to scientists. Consider Galileo, Pasteur, Newton, Einstein, Bohr, Planck __.; 2) The Scientific "Community" must accept these results. This is becoming more and more difficult, with science being true to the destiny of all human enterprises in its becoming increasingly structured and rigid. Contrary to what the public is lead to think, technological progress is accelerating while scientific progress slows down. For example, even though we have acquired detailed knowledge and control over some cellular processes, we are still very far from a satisfactory understanding of cellular functioning. In our research, we are at stage one. After perhaps one or one-and-a-half thousand experiments, we think we have discovered the nature of molecular communication: it is via electromagnetic (EM)fields (comparable to radio transmitter/receiver waves) which are relayed by water molecules. Or, rather, we are at stage one-and-a-half : we are no longer alone. A unLversity research group from Montpellier has just reported a high dilution effect in an international journal; another group, from a pharmaceutical company, has published results Identical to those we obtamed five years ago (Quotidlen du medecin, 16 Dec 93 and 14 Feb 94); Erwin Heintz published, in 1962, similar results in the Comples-Rendus de 1’A cad mie des Sciences; two other university research groups, in Paris and in Bordeaux, are preparing reports on analogous facts observed in other systems; the director of an INSERM research unit, who is so afraid that he swore me to secrecy, has kept comparable results under lock and key since 1988; five European groups, including three from universities, presented similar results at congresses of the A merican A ssocialion for the A d’ancement of SCience AORrssr POSTAL r INSFRM IJ :>00 :J?

At such a level of utopia (which, we are told, is denied to scientists but the right to which I demand when it is informed by facts) there are a good many reasons for confining the dreamer responsible to a mental asylum, a fate which has already been suggested as apt for In my defense, I would say only this: he (or she, let’s not be sexist) who invented the wheel invented the Formula I. And, closer to ourselves, Graham Bell, in carrying the human voice from one room to another, knew very well that one day it would be from continent to continent and this despite the sarcastic remarks of his contemporaries for whom the telephone was a mere toy Similar incomprehension and sarcasm notwithstanding, we transmit, on a daily basiS, the specific activity of simple and complex molecules using coils of electrical wire and a simple amplifier. We send this information either to water, which stocks it before retransmittmg it, or directly to cells whose metabolism is thereby profoundly changed. This is expenmentally and scientifically true. When it becomes institutionnaJly true the rest will follow. For we cannot escape this trUIsm: If the activity of a molecule can be transported in this way, it is because it is EM in nature and thus susceptible, through the application of existing technology, to the treatment I have described myself. In order that these utOpias cease to be no more than just that, audacity, fairness and a genuine desire for progress are and always will be necessary in science, that is in scientists. This is hardly the case In our society increasingly resigned and threatened by hand-out norms, which pursues Its collapse into lazy consensus and covert conformism, and pays lip service to democracy while flIrting with ItS opposIte. For my part, and that of my colleagues at INSERM U 200 (now closed for heresy), somewhat puzzled by the years of indifference and of vicious and senseless attacks on our professIOnal competence and even integrity, but still obliged to carry on by our results, that have up to now never been seriously challenged by any solid hypothesIs. It IS these fundamental values (and also funds) that we find most lacking.. June 22, 1994

  22. 22. e THE TRANSFER OF SPECIFIC MOLECULAR SIGNALS BY ELECTROMAGNETIC MEANS, AND ITS CONSEQUENCES IN BIOLOGY AND MEDICINE. Jacques Benveniste INSERM W2000, Paris, France. An electromagnetic (EM) field abolished the activity of highly dilute ligands (FASEB J. 1991, 5:A 1583), suggesting that they depend on EM fields. EM fields being in principle electronically transferable, we built an amplifier (gain: 100 V/6 V and 100 nN150 mA)fitted In blind and open experiments. vials of ovalbumin with one input and one output EM were placed on the input Water vials (Ova,LPS, (Ova. 10 nM), LPS (1 g) or water (W) W respectively) were placed (15 min) on the output coil and then tested on isolated hearts from Ova-immunized guinea-pigs. Coronary flow variations (CFV)were (%,mean + SEM, n=20-36): Ova, 26.6 + 2.7; LPS,26.1 + 2.8; W,6.2 + 0.7 (Wvs Ova, LPS : p=e.8). In hearts + from Ova. immunized rats, Ova induced (63open exp.) % of the CFV induced by 0.1 M Ova and 88.9 + in 24 blind expo (Wvs Ova, p=e-ll). In addition, adrenaline activity was directly transferred, without W as intennediate, to human T cells (CEM-CI2 line). Transmitted adrenaline significantly (p < 0.001, Student test) increased cell activation (MTTtest) over a 18 hr incubation period. Thus the physical carrier of the molecular signal could be specific EM fields, possibly supported by polarized water dipoles (Phys.Rev. Len. 1988, 61:1085). EM fields may be recorded, digitally processed, transmitted at a distance... furnishing new tools for biology and medicine.

  23. 23. e rJrtPU t.J ~ /7 R,4J ,.,; . , COLD FUSION: IS THERE A TUNNEL AT THE END OF THE LIGHT? R.T. Bush Physics Department, California State Polytechnic University, U.S.A. In a presentation at the Austin Conference of the Society for Scientific Exploration the author emphasized that, contrary to the notions of the general scientific community, a vast amount of evidence can now be marshaled in suppon a heavy water excess heat effect of a nuclear nature as first hypothesized by Fleischmann and Pons in March of 1989. And, the light water excess heat effect Mills) is gradually being deciphered at Cal Poly (colleague: Eagleton) and elsewhere. A major contribution to this understanding my be a recent model by the author explicating impurity promotion of both excess heat effects. R. (R. A substantial handicap with regard to the acceptance of cold fusion by the Physics community has been the lack of a model to understand how significant tunneling can occur through the Coulomb barrier. The author has discovered a fine structure ("hill-and-valley transmission resonances) superimposed upon the otherwise linear nature of the excess power-versuscurrent density curves in the case of both heavy water and light water electrolytic cell experiments. While the author has a model elucidating this fine structure, and predicting it prior to its discovery, the curves are considered anomalous even by some of the supporters of cold fusion. These curves seem to be connectable with two different models that may unravel the tunneling riddle. One of these models employs an idea of R. Bass to connect the author’s TRM ("Transmission Resonance Model") with Schwinger’s NEAL Model "Nuclear Energy in an Atomic Lattice"). The second of these, the author’s ECFM ("Electron Catalyzed Fusion Model") employs a hypothetical redisnibution of the energy of the zero point field, and is based upon a key idea of Puthoff regarding the ground state of hydrogen.

  24. 24. e COMPARISON OF THE SENDERlNO SENDER CONDITIONS USING AN AUTOMATED GANZFELD SYSTEM Kathy S. Dalton, Robert L. Morris, Deborah L. Delanoy and Caroline Watt, Department of Psychology, University of Edinburgh, V.K. One of the most successful techniques for eliciting evidence of ESP under well controlled laboratory conditions involves a mild fonn of sensory isolation known as a Ganzfeld. Recent telepathy research using an automated ganzfeld testing procedure devised by Honorton, Berger and colleagues. has produced results of sufficient consistency to warrant its use in process-oriented research. A sender in one room is shown a shon video clip while a receiver in a non-adjoining acoustically shielded room attempts to gain impressions about the clip. The receiver is then shown four clips, one a duplicate of the target clip, and asked to choose on a blind basis which is likely to be the target. In the present study (almost completed), 32 participants contribute one session in one of three conditions: sender absent, with receiver blind as to sender’s presence or absence; sender present,with receiver blind as to sender’s presence or absence; and sender present, with receiver and experimenter aware of sender’s presence (96participants in all). Participants were selected primarily from an artistic population based on experimental research suggesting that an artistic population may perform better than chance expectation in the ganzfeld. Analysis will include direct hits measures as well as sum of ranks for the overall study and for comparison among the three sending conditions. Personality variables from the NEO-PIR will also presented, as well as results of individual differences as measured by a participant personal information form and a self-repon creativity scale.
  25. 25. e "EARTH LIGHTS": HISTORY AND LATEST DEVELOPMENTS CONCERNING RESEARCH INTO ANOMALOUS LIGHT PHENOMENA Paul Devereux I.C.R.L., Penzance,Cornwall, U.K. Devereux briefly looks at the ethnography of anomalous light phenomena amongst traditional peoples, and the history of their perception in Western societies up to the present day. He then overviews the "Tectonic Stress" hypothesis, presenting supporting evidence, which includes recently discovered mining traditions and other personal research. He then describes some recurring characteristics widely noted regarded anomalous light phenomena, and uses these to suggest new ideas about the nature of the lights. But he recommends that we should not theorise too much at this stage, and suggests that our first concern should be to find a place in nature where the phenomena can be reliably observed. Only this will give us the data on which to base sound theorising. He concludes with brief accounts of recent exploratory field trips to light phenomena "zones" under the aegis of International Consciousness Research Laboratories (ICRL)and the Fetzer Institute, and indicates how light phenomena research is likely to move forward.
  26. 26. e REMOTE STARING DETECTION AND PERSONALITY CORRELATES Susan J. Howat, Deborah L. Delanoy & Robert L. Morris Department of Psychology, University of Edinburgh, U.K. The electrodennal activity (EDA)of 28 participants responding to remote staring and nonstaring conditions was examined in this study. The EDA of each participant was obtained for 64 periods, each of 30 seconds duration. with 16 staring and 16 non-staring periods pseudorandomly interspersed with 32 rest periods. Also, staring detection was examined in conjunction with various individual differences including perceptual defensiveness, and the personality traits measured by the NEO-PI-R. A non-significant EDA difference was found between staring and non-staring periods with a tendency for EDA to increase during staring periods. Within participants measures indicated only a weak consistency in starees reactions (activation or calming of EDA)during the session. Most of the individual differences analyses yielded non-significantly relationships. The most notewonhy results include indications of a possible trend for perceptually defensive individuals to detect remote staring to a lesser degree than vigilant individuals, suggesting that defensive people can block out the perceived threat. A possibly related finding was that openness correlated positively with magnitude of staring detection (p<0.05).There was a non-significant tendency for extraversion. and the closeness of relationship between starer and panicipant. to be positively related to magnitude of staring detection. Participants who had training in mental disciplines of an interpersonal nature exhibited a nonsignificant tendency to become more calm during staring periods, as did panicipants who had similar personalities to the starer. These results are related to previous remote staring findings and their implications discussed.
  27. 27. e UNDERSTANDING THE BENEFITS OF SUBHARMFUL DOSES OF TOXICANTS. Roeland van Wijk Department of Molecular Cell Biology, Utrecht University. The Netherlands. The benefits from subharmful doses of toxicants are most commonly reported in homeopathy. The essence of homeopathy is formed by stimulating disturbed ’self. recovery through applying the similia law. Self-recovery can be described on the level of organism (selfhealing), organ (regeneration),cell (proliferation),and on molecular level (synthesis of protective proteins). Our recent experiments with isolated cells show that, according to the similia principle the suboptimal self-recovery is stimulated with a smaller dose of the substance responsible for disturbing the system in the fITSt place. On patient level, of all medicines the remedy is chosen that is capable of producing that artificial situation of illness resembling the patient’s clinical entity to be treated the most. However, on higher system levels, all kinds of shifts in time occur, and a large number of factors (including even psychosocial and emo onal factors) may playa role in self-recovery. In previous studies we have tested whether in humans, remedies bring about an effect without direct molecular interaction. The experimental model is based on the use of diphenyl to disturb human muscular activity, and the application of sulphur to stimulate recovery. The experiments show a significant deviation between sulphur and placebo, the effect being dependent on type and number of dilutions, and the intermediate shaking procedure. The solutions were even effective when tested in sealed glass phials. We suggest that molecular interactions playa major role in self-recovery at the lowest levels of organisation, while the ’information component’ becomes additionally apparent in very complex system levels.

  30. 30. e RESTRICTED from physical and behavioral science. Such accusation had been made by critics of research in this area stating that such research will mean the end of technology, the end of scientific outlook and a new apocalypse of reason. 53. term pathological science was derived by Irving He criticised the whole area of work, quoting several examples, eg n-rays, mutagenic radiation, the Allison effect, ESP and Flying Saucers as being unworthy of research. One member of the audience remarked that mutagenic radiation is now a "respectable" subject and will be the topic of an upcoming conference in Moscow. It is interesting to note however that Langmuir was a member of the USAF UFO panel! The Langmuir~ 54. The symptoms of pathological science are reported to be as follows: a. Barely detectable b. Involving a fantastic theory c. Criticisms are being met by ad hoc excuses. 55. Heresy only exists if there is orthodoxy. Galileo probably made the mistake of supporting views if those other countries who did not support the Catholics Church. Heresy is quite often a challenge to political power. One example is cold fusion work which certainly challenges the establishment to put considerable effort into areas such as the TOKOMAK. 56. UFOs can also be very embarrassing to the establishment for various reasons. other areas such as astrology are considered a non-issue because they can easily be dismissed by the Establishment. 57. It was somewhat refreshing to note however that it was stated that classified organisations such as the defence community are in general much more open minded than organisations such as academia. In general it is acceptable for new ideas to be developed from inside scientific orthodox communities but not outside. This would probably be the case with UFOs. 58. There was also concern that the concept of heresy is now being exploited for its own sake. RESTRICTED 11

  36. 36. e +- 3l INVOLVEMENT OF THE BELGIAN AIR FORCE I thought it would be worthwhile to describe briefly the social context before going on to discuss the involvement of the Air Force in the debate on UFOs. When I was asked to attend the SOBEPS press conference on 18 December 1989, as Chief of Operations of the Air Staff, I was sceptical about the existence of UFOs. Having said that, I was determined to approach the problem without prejudice, as far as possible, and to examine it in an objective manner. Two factors became apparent to me during this press conference. Firstly, the evidence was remarkable. It was not frivolous and was presented in a natural and rather modest manner: no trace of sensationalism or exaggerated media "hype". Secondly, the approach of SOBEPS was sober, objective and based on scientific facts. Evidence which could be linked to natural phenomena was rejected immediately. Another important factor: certain journalists had the armed forces as their target, in particular the Air Force. The phenomena observed were alleged to have been experimental aircraft, the existence of which was to be concealed from the public. Some saw a link with the F-117 and used the opportunity to criticise American "imperialism". The alleged servility of the Belgian authorities, who had, consciously or not, allowed such experiments, was also denounced. Moreover, there were rumours to the effect that observations of certain UFOs had been made by military radars, about which no information could be disclosed. Initially, the Air Force was obliged to deny the hypothesis of experimental test flights. This was fairly simple, and the context is amply described in the previous chapters. The Air Force could put its cards on the table for the simple reason that there was nothing to hide, and that it was impossible from a technical point of view that an F-117 could have been involved. In addition, the seriousness of the evidence and the professionalism of SOBEPS were factors which prompted the Air Force to decide on the need for a more in-depth study. This is why it had decided before the holding of the press conference to try to identify the nature and origin of certain observed phenomena. The big question was, however, with what means? THE MEANS -. . . ~~Every flight in Belgian airspace carried out between the setting and rising of the sun by any aircraft whatsoever must be the , subject of an official request and must receive clearance from the civil and/or military authorities. These two bodies are responsible for coordinating all air movements during the night so that the identity of all aircraft in flight is known, together with their intentions, the aim being, of course, to ensure the safety of air navigation. In the case of the UFO observations, it was therefore a case of checking whether any non-regulation flight had been carried out. If this were indeed found to be the case, it goes without saying that we would have to try to identify these aircraft.
