It is likely that both internal as well as external qi may target specific biological processes in order to bring about self-healing. Considering recent advances in understanding intracellular biochemical mechanisms involved in disease states, it is also likely that qi acts on specific biological targets within individual cells in our bodies. A new model is presented which proposes that a particular bio-molecule, namely DNA, can act as a target and therefore as an antennae for internal qi, but can also facilitate the flow of qi to a diseased part of the body. The first part of the model posits that qi is composed of two basic types of energy, in addition its known positive and negative polarity. Qi is believed to be composed of a locally acting electromagnetic (EM) component, which is regulated by a non-local quantum information field. The second part of the model proposes that when DNA exists in certain higher order (tertiary) structures, it can transform the quantum field of qi into biologically usable EM fields which are broadcast from the nucleus outwards throughout the entire cell to promote self-healing from within.
Several lines of experimental investigation have been used to support these hypotheses.
Conformational changes of DNA were measured using standard biochemical techniques involving absorption spectrophometry. Electrical properties of DNA solutions were determined using Cleve Baxter's methodology to measure plants. DNA synthesis in tumor cells grown in tissue culture was measured using standard biochemical techniques involving radioactive thymidine incorporation. Some experiments were done blind. These biological endpoints were used to characterize the energetic nature of qi from a QiGong master, western trained healers and normal individuals practicing mental and emotional management techniques. In some experiments ECG measures were recorded during healing imagery sessions.
The results indicate DNA solutions are stable when kept at room temperature for two hours when exposed to the normal ambient environment. Expressed as percent increases relative to pretreatment values, control samples showed changes around 1 %, whereas differently energized samples varied from 2-10%. Positive and negative Qi, as well as different intentions, produced different and opposite conformational and electrical changes using isolated DNA and similar bipolar effects on cellular DNA synthesis. The measured increases or decreases in these biological endpoints correlated with the intention of the practitioner.
Experiments with multiple intentions and multiple DNA samples indicated that different intentions can be simultaneously broadcast. These experiments also indicated that intention can be directed and localized to a specific DNA sample. These results support the hypothesis that the Qi energy field is composed of different types of information (intentions) which can be expressed at the same time and differentially 'read' by the DNA when resonance conditions are met. The quantum properties of qi are based on the non-local responses of DNA which occurred over distances of several miles where classical EM fields would be virtually zero. Thus, although Qi has an EM component which can act locally, Qi also has a non-EM quantum component which acts non-locally. The quantum nature of qi is also supported by the observation that coherence is generated in the body's electrical system (ECG) when qi healing occurs. Thus, mediation and other forms of self-healing, which generate electrical coherence in the body, allows our consciousness to access the quantum level within our cells, our biomolecules and our bioenergy-field
