A recent study from Caltech and the University of Tokyo confirms that human consciousness can measurably detect changes in the magnetic field. This is not the first study on the correlations but its more scientific in that its looking at physiological changes in real time. This particular study was featured at spaceweather.com which typically doesn't post to fringe views of the solar influence which means this is a positive sign that the world is catching up and fortunately in time for tonight's show.
In this latest study the scientists built a isolated radio frequency shielded chamber and had participants sit in silence and darkness for a hour. During that time they shifted the magnetic field silently around the chamber and measured brain waves via electrodes positioned at 64 locations on their heads.
34 people of various ethnicities were involved. Consciously, nothing changed for them as they sat in the dark. However changes in brain waves were detected as the magnetic field shifted around them. The researchers tracked the “alpha rhythm” in the brain which occurs between 8 and 13 hertz.
When the brain is engaged, the alpha power is high. When something captures its attention, consciously or unconsciously, it drops. Sensory stimulation also drops the amplitude of brain waves. The experiments showed a 60 percent drop over several hundred milliseconds followed by a recovery to baseline after a few seconds. The test also showed that the brain appears to be activity processing magnetic information and rejecting signals that are not natural. This has been referred to as a whole new sense beyond the sixth. They call it “Magnetor Reception.”
The full paper is titled “Transduction of the Geomagnetic Field as Evidenced from Alpha band Activity in the human brain.
Now how this even be possible?
It was discovered in the 1960s that migratory animals use the earth's magnetic field for travel due to a little known substance called magnetite, tiny magnetic particles found in the brain. In 1992, a professor at the California Institute of Technology Dr. Joseph Kirschwink was featured in the NY Times for his claim to have discovered magnetite in human brain cells. His work was rejected by three leading research journals.
What we know about magnetite is that it can act as a transducer linking ambient electromagnetic activity to cellular function. It has been found in the pineal gland where there is a concentration of it. Magnetite has already been identified as the substance in which migratory animals are able to detect the earth's magnetic field. It may also provide a basis for magnetic broadcasting of our brains information.
This discovery further indicates that we are both transmitters and receivers of subtle energy and consciousness. The pineal gland regulates circadian rhythm and melatonin production and is sensitive to magnetic fields.
The next major scientific study to highlight was initially published in New Scientist in 2008 with the headline “Does the Earth's Magnetic Field cause Suicides?” Oleg Shumilov of the Institute of North Industrial Ecology Problems in Russia found a peak in suicides in a northern Russian city during peaks in geomagnetic activity. He studied activity from 1948 to 1997 and found that it grouped into three seasonal peaks every year: One from March to May, another in July and the last in October.
Additionally, new moons have also been linked to suicides in a 2000 BBC study that found that suicide rates increased as winter turned to spring and summer to autumn. The Finnish National Public Health Institute studied 1400 suicides and found a link to light changes of seasons.
A 2006 Australian study also found a correlation between peaks in suicide numbers and geomagnetic activity. South Africa has also collected data on suicides and magnetic storms. A British study in 1994 suggested a 36 percent increase in the number of men admitted into hospital for depression in the second week after geomagnetic storms.
Kelly Posner with Columbia University in quoted in the New Scientist report from 2008 suggesting that the answer to the riddle as to whats going on lies in the desyncronization, specifically of the circadian rhythm and melatonin production. Geomagnetic storms distrupt body clocks, precipitating seasonal affective disorders and therefore increasing suicide risk. Shumilov did not believe that geomagnetic activity influences everyone equally. He also presented hospital data showing a correlation between abnormal baby heart rates and periods of high geomagnetic activity.
In 2011 during the period of the london riots, REUTERS ran with the following headline in August 2011: Riots, wild markets: Did space storms drive us mad?
The mainstream report leads with the statement that “Some academics have claimed that such geomagnetic storms can affect humans, altering moods and leading people into negative behavior through effects on their biochemistry.” They also cite evidence for hospital admission for depression and suicides increase. Here is the citation of Federal Reserve study:
“A 2003 study by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta found that such storms could affect the stock market, as traders were more likely to make pessimistic choices. Unusually high levels of geomagnetic activity have a negative, statistically and economically significant effect on the following week’s stock returns for all US stock market indices,” the authors found in their report.”
The reuters author concludes “It could of course be mere coincidence that this has been a rollercoaster week on the markets, and that Britain was rocked by a wave of ferocious rioting and looting. But market watchers may take comfort from the fact that the space weather forecast for Friday has gone quiet again.”
While preparing the information for the coast to coast am interview, I also discovered a rather lengthy document that suggests that changes in the geomagnetic field have been linked to psychic phenomena, specially the government gauged the effectiveness of it's remote viewing in a large number of studies from 1974 to 1988 involving a Michael Persinger. His video “No More Secrets” from 2007 echos the ideas shared here. His work seems to be the most detailed shoring paranormal, geomagnetic correlations with a focus on EEG results. You can find the 800 plus pages by googling 'The CIA studied the impact of space storms on psychic powers'. The specific paper released is entitled “Geomagnetic Factors in Subjective Telepathic, Precognitive and Postmortem Experiences.”
