Abstract: Based on the biophysical models of Becker, Popp and Gariaev, the present paper makes the argument that the study of exceptional human abilities such as self-healing and anomalous cognition (AC) should focus on biophoton emissions and conformational changes of biomolecules under the influence of focused intent. The central hypothesis is that practices such as qigong and yoga induce long-term structural and physiological changes in the body's semiconducting liquid crystal matrix, which maintain the system in a higher-than-average state of coherence, hence optimizing energy utilization (Bigu), sensitivity (AC, tohate) and regulatory DC current feedback loops which in turn control the expression of DNA and the "tuning" of sensory transduction arrays.
A comprehensive model of non-local mental interactions (Pitkanen's TGD) is also discussed within this theoretical framework, especially with respect to biophotons as a signature of macroscopic entanglement. Finally, a number of psychophysiological experimental approaches are described as an alternative to current directions in CAM and parapsychology studies.

Abstract: TGD inspired theory of consciousness together with the notion of manysheeted spacetime leads to a theory of biosystems as macroscopic quantum systems. Quantum control is based on manysheeted ionic flow equilibrium: the densities of the superconducting ions control the densities of the ions at atomic spacetime sheets, and are in turn controlled by 'massless extremals' (MEs) distinguishing TGD sharply from Maxwell's electrodynamics. 'MEs' are topological field quanta of the classical radiation fields and ideal for both classical and quantum communications. The hypothesis of topological self-referentiality stating that the topological field quanta of classical fields form a symbolic representation for the system's properties (system contains in its own structure a theory about system) provides a strong interpretative tool. For instance, bound state entanglement is represented by negative energy MEs and the generation of macroscopic bound states essential for the binding of the mental images is accompanied by the liberation of the binding energy as a usable energy. Hence the ability of the system to behave as a single coherent whole and nonlocal quantum metabolism are different sides of the same coin.
MEs and magnetic flux tube structures seem to provide a royal road to the understanding of living systems as macroscopic quantum systems. The pairs formed by MEs and magnetic flux tubes define 'magnetic mirrors' serving as electromagnetic bridges between systems (not only living ones). By fractality, magnetic mirrors provide a common mechanism allowing to understand seemingly totally unrelated phenomena occurring at widely differing length scales. At molecular length scales miracle like molecular recognition mechanisms could be based on MEs serving as electromagnetic bridges between the molecules: the molecules recognizing each other would 'sing in tune' electromagnetically. In TGD framework sensory representations are realized outside brain in terms of magnetic mirrors and 'EEG MEs' are very closely related to this realization. The model of long term memories relies on magnetic mirrors: to remember what happened for a year ago is to look at a magnetic mirror at the distance of half light year. This mechanism gives rise to memories in entire hierarchy of time scales, even water memory could be conscious and realized in this manner. The transformation of p-adic ME to a real one in quantum jump provides a candidate for the transformation of intention to action and is a crucial element of remote mental interactions.
Magnetic mirrors can also serve as bridges between different brains, organisms, and also between living and nonliving systems. This provides a general mechanism for remote mental interactions like hypnosis, telepathy, remote healing, remote vision, identification phenomena, and psychokinesis. Magnetic mirrors make possible sharing of mental images and telepathy. Magnetic mirrors make also possible feedback so that the active participant (say the healer or the sender of a telepathic message) can gradually learn how to generate the desired effect. The role of the medium is to act as a relay station to which the audience and the sender of the message are connected by magnetic mirrors. The role of medium can be also taken by 'adjunct', an object owned by a healer or healee.

Abstract: The model of biophotons emerged as a natural application of TGD based vision about biosystems. Simple mathematical facts about the decay of the delayed luminescence induced by an external perturbation like light signal, lead to a model in which pairs of positive and negative energy MEs transversal to and moving in opposite directions along DNA strand and it conjugate generate coherent biophotons. What is important is that a rather detailed model for how MEs and supra current circuits interact results. Most importantly, it becomes clear that negative energy MEs, perhaps the most science fictive piece of the new physics predicted by TGD, seem to be there.

Abstract: While materialism seems to be implied by the prevalent understanding of science, the traditional view has been called into question by new data regarding cellular microstructures and quantum coherence within these nanostructures. It has been suggested that even single cell organisms are capable of memory and sophisticated interactions with the environment. The study of such interactions has given rise to quantum biodynamics in biology suggesting new mechanisms through which organisms can respond to subtle changes in the environment, including stimuli from other organisms. Coupled with alternative versions of quantum theory that may be the basis for integrating consciousness itself into science, these recent developments clearly must be considered as a basis for understanding parapsychology.

Abstract: Hierarchic Model of Consciousness (HMC) presented here, is based on new Hierarchic Theory of Condensed Matter, general for liquids and solids (Kaivarainen, 1995; 2000a). In accordance to HMC, each specific kind of neuron ensembles excitation - corresponds to complex system of three-dimensional (3D) standing waves of different nature: thermal de Broglie waves (waves B), produced by anharmonic vibrations of molecules; electromagnetic (IR) waves; acoustic waves and vibro-gravitational waves (Kaivarainen, 2000b). Corresponding dynamic hologram may be responsible for large-scale quantum neurodynamics and for morphogenetic field.
In our model we consider the role of quantum collective excitations, produced by coherent translational and librational oscillations of water in the hollow core of the microtubules (MT). It is shown, that water fraction, related to librations, represent mesoscopic molecular Bose condensate (MBC) in form of coherent clusters. The dimensions of water clusters (nanometers) and frequency of their IR radiation may be enhanced by influence of rigid walls of MT. The
MBC is most ordered fraction of matter in biological cells. The increased frequency of coherent IR photons, radiated by MBC in MT, make possible the distant exchange interaction between MT of different neuron ensembles without absorption of photons by cytoplasmic water.
The Brownian effects, which influence reorientation of "tuned" MTs and increasing of probability of cavitational fluctuations in cytoplasmic water, stimulating [gel - sol] transition may be responsible for non-computational element of consciousness. Other models (Wigner, 1955 and Penrose, 1994) relate this element to wave function collapse.

Abstract: The basic assumptions of our work include the following: 1. the genome has a capacity for quasi-consciousness so that DNA “words” produce and help in the recognition of “semantically meaningful phrases”; 2. the DNA of chromosomes control fundamental programs of life in a dual way: as chemical matrixes and as a source of wave function and holographic memory; 3. processes in the substance-wave structures of the genome can be observed and registered through the dispersion and absorption of a bipolar laser beam. The present article brings forward considerable theoretical and experimental evidence in support of this model, and discusses its practical applications with respect to cancer and HIV therapeutic strategies.

Abstract: The phenomenon of qualia is explained by considering the organ of attention as the source of
the organism’s nervous energy (a kind of energy that directs all the other kinds of energy of the
organism), and attention as the nervous energy that gives the organism the possibility of performing
actions capable of directly affecting the state of its nervous energy. The attentional activity
performed by the organism involves a variation in the state of the nervous energy: it is precisely
this variation that constitutes the phenomenal aspect of consciousness.

Abstract: Albert Einstein once remarked, "The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them." The gift of rational thinking has brought humankind to a present threshold of almost unimaginable potentiality to self-actuate or self-destruct. The self-named creature, Homo Sapiens (wise man) must now somehow find the wisdom to transform the way he thinks in order to supersede and solve the problems he has created.
Erratum: in "The imprinting and transmission of mentally-directed bioinformation" by Lian Sidorov [JNLRMI 1(1)]: section IV, paragraph beginning with "One way, commonly found...", line 14 should read "sample to non-ionizingradiation produced radiographic film exposure...". The error was brought to our attention by M. Sue Benford, whose paper on the subject was published in the Journal of Theoretics Vol. 4, No. 1. We apologize for any inconvenience.
