Cerebral Biophoton Emission as a Potential Factor in Non-Local Human-Machine Interaction

Joey M. Caswell, Blake T. Dotta, Michael Persinger


Subjects were instructed to employ intention to affect the direction of random number generation from a device located on their right side at 1 m distance. Biophoton emissions from the right hemisphere were recorded simultaneously. Significant increases (~3.5∙10-12 W∙m-2) in photon radiant flux density occurred when there were marked deviations from random variations suggesting that the correlative variable for intent was coupled to cerebral photon emission. Cross-spectral analyses indicated a significant coupling between photon density and deviation from random variation within the 6 mHz range. The estimated raw power over the most likely area of influence (10-10m2) over the peak duration would be within the order of 10-20 J. This quantum is associated with single action potentials and the difference in energy equivalents after Lorentz contraction between the electron’s Compton wavelength and traditional particle width. The resulting ~1.5 µm wavelength for this energy, which matches Bohr’s solution, is also within the width of the synapse. The moderately strong correlation between the strength of the coherence between the deviations during intention and the photon emission and the entropy within the temporal distribution of the “random” number variations in the mHz range suggests that a shared source with the earth’s free background oscillations may be involved. Our results strongly indicate that photon-electron interactions between cerebral function and electronic devices that reflect “random” electron tunnelling may be more powerful than accommodated by classical physics and indicate the powerful role of a neuroquantological process.
