May The Field be with you

Konstantin Korotkov, a professor of what is now called the Russian National University of Informational Technology, Mechanics and Optics (formerly St. Petersburg State University), has made his name on an improved version of Kirlian photography, claimed to capture the energy field of a living thing, which mirrored the state of a person’s health.

Konstantin Korotkov, a professor of what is now called the Russian National University of Informational Technology, Mechanics and Optics (formerly St. Petersburg State University), has made his name on an improved version of Kirlian photography, claimed to capture the energy field of a living thing, which mirrored the state of a person’s health.

Konstantin came up with a means of capturing this mysterious light in real time by stirring up the photons of a living system, stimulating them into an excited state so that they would shine millions of times more intensely than usual.

He developed a mechanism, which he called the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) technique, which made use of state-of-the-art optics, digitized television matrices and a powerful computer, a blend of photography, measurements of light intensity and computerized pattern recognition. A computer program would then extrapolate from this a real-time image of the ‘biofield’ surrounding the organism and deduce from it the state of the organism’s health.

By the time we first made contact, Konstantin was 55 and a well-known public figure, who had lent the concept of human energy fields an air of legitimacy. He’d written five books on the subject, eventually attracting the attention of the Russian Ministry of Health, which recognized the importance of his invention in assessing health and diagnosing illness.

By 2007, the GDV device was widely used as a general diagnosis tool and as a means to evaluate a patient’s progress after surgery, and the Russian Ministry of Sport had begun to take notice of Konstantin and his machinery, even using it to assess the state of athletes training for the Olympics. Outside of Russia, thousands of medical practitioners were using his machines, a fact not overlooked by the US National Institutes of Health; indeed, a portion of a major NIH grant was to be used to investigate the ‘biofield’ using Korotkov’s equipment.

The launch of Sputnik
Lately, Konstantin has perfected a sensitive device he’d playfully christened ‘Sputnik’, after the first Soviet satellite space launch in 1957. His device is a bit like Roger Nelson’s entire Global Consciousness Project configuration rolled up into a single machine, as Konstantin claims that it is capable of measuring environmental influences on human emotion – and the reverse.

Sputnik had been developed as a specially designed antenna for his GDVs, which Konstantin likes to refer to as an ‘integral environment analyzer.’ Coupled with the information delivered by his GDV, the purpose of this highly sensitive device is to measure any changes in the atmosphere relative to any changes in the people occupying that space.

Konstantin claimed the little sensor could pick up the capacitance, or ability to store charge, of the environment through its extreme sensitivity to changes in environmental electromagnetic fields.

As human emotions are related to the activity of the parasympathetic nervous system, any changes in that system also change blood circulation, perspiration, and other functions, which consequently change the overall electrical conductivity of the body.

Our emotions change the Field
Aware of the vast body of evidence demonstrating the effect of solar activity, tectonic disturbances and tensions, and the ambient electromagnetic field on human health, Konstantin maintains that the reverse is also true: when a person experiences a change of emotion, it will affect the electricity of the environment, which in turn will be picked up by his Sputnik sensor.

“Changes in the functional state of the human body leads to a change in the . . . the field distribution around the body, the chemical composition of the ambient air due to exhaled air and emissions of endocrine substances through the skin,” he wrote in a paper about his invention. It was his theory that his Sputnik was capable of picking up even the most subtle of these environmental charges.

He spent a number of years testing the device during expeditions to Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, India, Myanmar, Siberia and elsewhere before becoming satisfied that the device was sufficiently sensitive to assess local environmental conditions and their idiosyncrasies after discovering sensitive sensor signal variations during sunrise and sunset or prior to a thunderstorm.

In 2008, he’d taken a series of measurements with it in a variety of spots in Russia – Novoskibirsk, Berdsk, Irkutsk and Abakan – using seven independent Sputnik devices during a total solar eclipse. All seven devices showed similar curves of activity before the eclipse, with all stabilizing similarly after the event was over.

Moody atmospherics
His most intriguing claimed effect was the ability of the device to measure the subliminal psychological and emotional reactions of groups of people. He’d tested in during a vast variety of group gatherings – religious ceremonies, yoga exercises, group meditation, musical performances and even public lectures – and discovered statistically significant changes in the device that correlated with the duration of the events and the group’s collective emotion; the higher the changes in his Sputnik signal, the greater the emotional charge of the room.

Like Roger Nelson and his REGs, he’d discovered major changes in the machine’s output during periods of intense meditation. He’s also demonstrated the effect of subliminal emotion on a room’s charge with one simple study of the impact of low-intensity sound on a group of student volunteers.

They’d been asked to come into a classroom and simply work on computers, while unbeknownst to them, Konstantin turned on a device emitting a low-intensity 20Hz sound – on the border of the human range of hearing but enough to be subliminally disturbing.

After the study was finished, a questionnaire assessing the students’ mental and emotional state, including their perception of their health and mood unquestionably showed that they’d been stressed during the experiment, and their changes mirrored the changes registered by the Sputnik.

The same changes did not occur with a control group of students under the same conditions but without the sound played or even by a third Sputnik, exposed to the same 20 Hz sound but placed in an empty room.

The power of intention
Although Konstantin’s device is relatively new and not subjected to the battery of testing of the REG machines, I wanted to see if his results correlated with those of Roger Nelson during our big Peace Intention Experiments. I asked him to turn it on every day of our last big experiment to see if any changes emerged.

Like Nelson’s REG, Sputnik showed changes just during the window of our intention. More evidence that collective thoughts can be heard ‘round the world.
