advise review of Mae-Wan Ho's book "The Rainbow and the Worm: The
Physics of Organisms", chapters 9 and 10 (description of coherence,
actions of low level EMFs and static magnets, cell communication, biophotons
and dynamic order). and chapter 12 (Chrystal Consciousness) on the primary
living system component of Liquid Crystals (these chapters contain the
least amount of complex formulae) This book has more physics and formulae
than I can handle, however, it is worth a read to skip those and plow
on thru to her conclusions, because, based on my experience, she is on
the right path in her investigations of EMF bioeffects and associated
liquid crystal phenomena. Her hypotheses and backup examples of living
systems, as primarily liquid crystal structures, provide some very possible
answers to the low level quantum sensitivity phenomena routinely encountered
(but not understood) in biosystems.

and 3-dimensional bioreactor systems to subject tissues to controlled
electromagnetic fields. Experiments are currently in progress, and our
preliminary data is extremely promising.
subjected normal human neural progenitor (NHNP) cells to low level electromagnetic
fields generated near electrically conductive plate electrodes (2-D) or
within a field generated by a solenoid coil (3-D). The waveforms tested
included sine waves, narrow pulses (delta function), and square waves.
Cells were subjected to 17 days of electromagnetic field stimulation of
all waveforms as well as a DC field.
were not subjected to transverse electrical fields through the culture
medium, as is often done in cell culture experiments employing electromagnetic
fields, rather the cells were grown within the induced magnetic field
surrounding the electrical conductor. For both the 2-D and 3-D systems,
the magnetic field intensity was limited to ~ 70 mG. Magnetic field intensity
was measured using a linear Hall effect sensor. For comparison, the Earth's
magnetic field is approximately 500 mG at 45o latitude. Rate of change
of the magnetic fields was estimated on the basis of Maxwell's equations
and the measured current transient response in both the conductive plate
and the solenoid coil. The mB (micromagnetic) fields were applied in 5
separate interventions as:
(1) 10 Hz
bipolar square waves,
(2) differentiated square waves (â?odelta functionâ??); narrow
pulses (200 ms) corresponding to each square wave edge,
(3) sine waves of the same amplitude and frequency as the square waves,
(4) DC (steady) mB fields, also of the same amplitude as the square wave,
(5) control (no mB field).

Gene array profiling indicated very significant increases in expression
of classes of genes related to extra-cellular matrix production, growth,
were greatest for square and delta functions, no difference between DC
fields and control (no field).
Cells respond to the rate of change in the mB field (dB/dt), not to the
peak field magnitude (Bmax) or total flux exposure. The high dB/dt of
the square waves and the delta were both effective at influencing cellular
response, whereas slowly varying (sine) or non varying (DC) fields had
significantly reduced or no effect. Equivalently high peak fields or long
exposure times (sine and DC, as well as square wave) were clearly not
as important as the rate of change of the mB field. In this study, peak
magnetic field amplitudes were ~ 70 mG, whereas the Earth's magnetic field
on average is ~ 500 mG, but is not time varying (i.e., it is DC). The
electromagnetic interventions carried out in this study were of course
superimposed upon the Earth's DC magnetic field. It is the time varying
nature of the fields that apparently has the most significant influence
on every aspect of the cellular response. We collectively term these time
varying electromagnetic fields as TVEMFs.

US weaponry could be used in conflict with Iraq
(AFP) Jan 01, 2003
experts say the Pentagon has developed a series of accurate and powerful
new weapons, including a microwave bomb, that could be used in a war against
Iraq. But they point out that it is the round-the-clock reliance on precision-guided
munitions known as JDAMs and unmanned drones that is expected to make
a difference in the war against the regime of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
E-bomb, designed to destroy electronic nerve centers, could already be
in the US arsenal, although Washington has not announced it publicly.
does not kill people, it is capable of causing burns. On top of that,
the E-bomb "could sever communications between Saddam Hussein and
troops that might be ordered to use chemical and biological weapons,"
said John Pike, a military affairs expert. "It could freeze weapons
of mass destruction, at least that would be the hope," he added.
the blackout bomb BLU-114B, which can be delivered by planes or cruise
missiles, is capable of disrupting electricity grids in urban areas. However,
cutting off electricity could be a bad idea in the event that US military
should want to broadcast to the Iraqi people the death of their president.
industry was also improving deep-penetration weapons that could be used
against underground bunkers or mountain caves. Some of these weapons have
already been used in the 1990-1991 Gulf War and in Afghanistan. Last March
in Afghanistan, the US army used the thermobaric bomb BLU-118S, which
is often referred to as a air-fuel weapon capable of knocking down walls
and sucking out oxygen from enclosed spaces.
aerospace giant Lockheed-Martin tested, in the state of New Mexico, the
Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM), a cruise missile launched
from F-16 fighter jets that is capable of penetrating the hardest surfaces
and finding its target even through fog and cloud cover. "We will
throw everything at him that we have ... including thermobaric and bunker
buster weapons designed to get at buried arsenals of chemical and biological
weapons," said Chris Hellman of the Center for Defense Information,
in a reference to Saddam Hussein. "As long as we suspect they are
there and that Saddam may resort to using them we will throw the kitchen
sink at him, short of weapons of mass destruction," he added.
and foremost, military experts count on using proven systems like JDAMs
and other precision-guided munitions that rely on global positioning satellites
to home in on their targets. Precision-guided weapons represented only
seven percent of all munitions used against Iraqi troops in the Gulf War,
according to retired military officer Mike Vickers. Their share rose to
30 percent in the 1999 Kosovo campaign, to 60 percent in Afghanistan and
was expected to reach 80 percent in Iraq, Vickers said. "The air
drop will be almost entirely precision-guided, and the bulk of it will
be satellite instead of laser-guided," Pike pointed out. To quietly
monitor enemy movements, the pilotless drones Predator and Global Hawk
are already in the arsenal. The Marines Corps has a prototype of Dragon
Eye, a mini-drone that can spot snipers in urban environments like Baghdad.
The US Army has just unveiled its future spy plane called Shadow 200.
despite all technological progress, it is armored ground units that will
bring about the collapse of Saddam Hussein's regime, according to Pike.
Iraqis may be accustomed to air strikes but not to seeing M-1A2 Abrams
tanks at the gates of Baghdad. These tanks, as well as the armored, tank-like
Apache helicopters, have also been modernized.
