Genetic information carries four fundamental programs of life: development, maintenance, reproduction, and death, but these programs operate not on a chemical level, i.e., not by direct chemical interactions with genes. Dr. Craig Venter very thoughtfully mentioned this at the TV announcement of the deciphering of the human genome in 2000. This “different level of organization”— the Biofield Control System (BCS) of the organism — is a hierarchical structure that includes the whole organism, organs, tissues and cells. It also includes the mind (at the organism level) that materializes all fundamental programs of life in behavior.
Ignoring the role of the BCS impairs biomedical science and pharmacology and consequently the social health care system. But the root of the problem is in the insufficiency of contemporary Newtonian physics which does not have any concept of the physical interactions responsible for emergence and existence of life.
The book suggests some ways to approach the problem. It consists of three parts: I — Concept of the biofield control system, its structure and its history; II — Experimental observations, and III — Alternative physical models.
The concept of the biofield has a century-long history. It was engendered by developmental biologists in opposition to the strictly genetic, biochemical approach (Prof. L. Beloussov, Moscow State University with a Commentary by American Professors J. Opitz and S. Gilbert) and was independently introduced by the Romanian biochemist E. Machovschi in the 1950s – 1970s as the “biostructure” (Prof. G. Drochioui, Romanian University). The structure of the BCS and its function suggest that the physical carrier of the BCS cannot be reduced to any of the currently known fundamental physical interactions (S. Savva).
Experimental observations include confirmation of the biological nuclear synthesis introduced by Louis Kervran (Dr. A. Kornilova, Moscow State University, and Prof. V. Vysotsky, Ukraine State University); water interaction with hydrophobic liquids (S. Savva); paradoxical effects of super low doses of biologically active substances on living systems (Prof. E. Burlakova et al. Institute of Biochemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences); and communications between living systems (Prof. J. Kiang, Walter Read Army Institute of Research and C. Backster, Backster Foundation). These observations indicate that the physical carrier (or carriers) of BCS must have both energy and informational qualities and that it is (they are) capable of interacting with the currently known fundamental physical forces.
Alternative theoretical physical models presented and referred to in the book reveal the inadequacy of the current scientific paradigm (Dr. J. Bockris and Dr. H. Puthoff), suggest a five-dimensional space-time model (J. Beichler), an eleven-dimensional space-time model (Prof. W. Tiller) and a concept of stable structures in superfluid vacuum (Dr. N. Sotina, Moscow State University).
