Biophysical Approach to Psi Phenomena

Hideyuki Kokubo

Abstract


The problems and possibilities of modern parapsychology are discussed from the viewpoint of the natural sciences, focusing on the research senses. First, the author points out that more consideration of parapsychological phenomena should be made from the viewpoint of biophysics. Next, through experiments on healing (bio-PK) by the author or the author and co-workers, the claim is made that the magnitude of the power of psi (also known as ki or qi) can be described as the J value which is the natural logarithm of the ratio of physical quantities). Moreover, through discussion on a wave-like potential distribution of bio-PK around the human body, the possibility of plural unknown factors related to psi phenomena is indicated and those factors follow their own physical laws.
