The Old and the New
In preliterate times, our ancestors lived in a world full of mysterious forces that governed their lives from: planetary cycles to storms; ‘life forces’ to unseen spirit worlds; witch doctors to the hands of the healer.
In the last 100 years modern science has been able to quantify these strange and invisible forces. These discoveries provide scientific evidence that can explain how two or more persons can sense or feel a connection or influence and affect the other. Similarly it can quantify an individual’s connection with the Earth or another living organism.
The ancient idea that there are universal forces governing human affairs does have a basis in reality. Instead of gods and spirits modern science has substituted them with electromagnetic fields, but the results are strikingly similar. (Robert O Becker, Cross Currents)
To understand the electromagnetic fields and connection of the human body we must first look at the Earth’s Geomagnetic Field.
The Earth’s Geomagnetic Field
The spinning core of molten iron miles beneath the surface of the Earth creates a dipole magnetic field, much like a bar magnet. However, the energy of the sun distorts and perturbs this simple field into a unique structure, the magnetosphere. The magnetosphere shades the earth from deadly ionising radiation (such as x-rays) and other high-energy radiation, by absorbing them or diverting them around the Earth. Thanks to the magnetosphere we are able to live on a small-protected planet in a hostile universe filled with enormous forces.
The magnetic field is constantly changing as the earth rotates. The daily rise and fall in the strength of this field causes biological rhythms, magnetic and solar storms. These can impinge on the magnetosphere and cause great magnetic-field disturbances to: electric transmission, telephone lines, radio and television signals, causing their breakdown.
The question of whether living systems are sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field has been bitterly controversial for more than a century. There are now a number of plausible and well-documented mechanisms for such interactions, and abundant evidence that they take place. Moreover, Becker’s research has shown how geomagnetic entrainment of the brain waves can affect the entire nervous system at a very high level of control (i.e. the perineural DC systems that extends throughout the body and has roles in regulating injury repair). This can have an effect on the human biological system and human behaviour.
