What is intended to demonstrate here can be quite shocking, however, is not a new idea and similar or perhaps less definite ideas have been promoted by great minds throughout history and of course today, with new researches that underpin it.

It's, indeed, about the idea that the electromagnetic field is equivalent to the vital principle and the active consciousness (and different configurations of the matter the memory), and that the difference in the degree of complexity of the fields in each ambit and scale it's what makes the system more or less vital and, with increasing complexity, more or less conscious.

For this demonstration I will first present a scientific paper that I take as a reference, because it is a highly developed work, also in a practical way, but mostly because it integrates many scales (and therefore also electromagnetic frequencies) and that later it will seen that really every level is influenced by different frequencies at different scales.

So lets with the

REFERENCE TEXT

Design and Construction of a Brain-Like Computer: A New Class of Frequency-Fractal Computing Using Wireless Communication in a Supramolecular Organic, Inorganic System
http://www.mdpi.com/2078-2489/5/1/28

The document deals with the building of a smart computer where computing is done by resonance of electromagnetic fields

in the abstract it can be read:

" .. Our hardware is a multilayered seed structure. If we open the largest seed, which is the final hardware, we find several computing seed structures inside, if we take any of them and open, there are several computing seeds inside. We design and synthesize the smallest seed, the entire multilayered architecture grows by itself. The electromagnetic resonance band of each seed looks similar, but the seeds of any layer shares a common region in its resonance band with inner and upper layer, hence a chain of resonance bands is formed (frequency fractal) connecting the smallest to the largest seed (hence the name invincible rhythm or Ajeya Chhandam in Sanskrit)...[]... Memory is located at all layers of the hardware. Learning, computing occurs everywhere simultaneously. Since resonance chain connects all computing seeds, wireless processing is feasible without a screening effect. The computing power is increased by maximizing the density of resonance states and bandwidth of the resonance chain together. We discovered this remarkable computing while studying the human brain, so we present a new model of the human brain in terms of an experimentally determined resonance chain with bandwidth 10-15 Hz (complete brain with all sensors) to 1015 Hz (DNA) along with its implementation using a pure organic synthesis of entire computer (brain jelly) in our lab, software prototype as proof of concept and finally a new fourth circuit element (Hinductor) based beyond Complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) hardware is also presented."

here some quotes from the body of the text:

" The computer has no circuits. It has no switches or logic gates. It’s a multi-layered hardware, means, if A is a basic seed material, several A would self-assemble to form seed B, several B would self-assemble to form seed C, and this would continue to say up to eight layers, A to H, now seed H is the computer, which has G, F, E, D, C, B and A layers inside. Each layer has at least three electromagnetic resonance sub-bands, one sub-band is common to the upper layer and another is common to the lower layer. Thus a chain of resonance band is formed extending from A to H, a complex function AJ = F(x, y) + iG(x, y) represents the chain comprehensively but not completely. A resonance peak means a sharp current is allowed to pass through a material at a very small frequency window that keeps the material oscillating electromagnetically and/or electromechanically. Since, self-similarity of resonance bands (triplet) from A to H is derived from the expression of this function AJ, we call it frequency fractal (resonance chain = frequency fractal). Before learning begins, the entire resonance chain looks identical at any level A to H, self-similarity is absolute. As the computer learns, 'if-then' arguments are stored by shifting resonance peaks via a conformational change in the seed and the absoluteness of self-similarity disappears. We get an inhomogeneous resonance chain. The difference between the ideal pristine resonance chain (serves as background) and the modified resonance chain is the real information or argument content of the computer. Resonance chain plays a primary role for searching a pattern without performing a real 'search'."

" Fundamentally, our basic information processing device will be an oscillator attached to an antenna and a receiver, the oscillator is so designed that we can write/erase multiple resonance states. When an electromagnetic signal is applied to the device, multiple resonant oscillator circuits absorb energies specific to the resonance frequencies and start oscillating. This oscillation turns the system unstable; as a result, the energy is radiated outside via non-radiative coupling as shown in Figure 3c, noise does not mix with signals as the absorption occurs only for signals with the perfect matching frequencies, at the same time, the emission is always quantized.

" Since, irrespective of the nature of information, processing and communication should occur via coupling the resonance peaks, thus, operational and computational language of our artificial brain is written using only one parameter, 'frequency'. This principle is shown in Figure 3d. A wireless resonant non-radiative power transfer ensures reliable communication even when the noise amplitude is more than the signal [20,37]. An accurate frequency match is the key, and natural vibrational frequency of a material cannot change by an external noise, thus, solution holder spontaneously sends the reply even under noise, and penetrates any material that does not match its frequency [38]. Even under massive noise, these resonance frequencies act as an attractor during synchronization, when the system is dragged away, this basic natural property pulls back the system to the particular frequency state. Therefore, modulating the natural frequency and harnessing its advantages are the keys to our new class of computing, that explore materials 'electromagnetic transparency'."

" For each layer, the resonance band has three distinct domains, one domain is used to communicate with the inner layer, and one with the external layer, one layer is kept for its own information processing, as shown in Figure 4a. Thus, all layers are energetically connected by a single chain of resonance band, irrespective of the size of the device architecture now a wireless communication can transmit without getting screened anywhere. Energy given as an input at any layer transmits to the entire chain of resonance bands, both ways, towards the lower and towards the higher frequency regions of the chain as shown in the Figure 4b. Any form of energy is suitably absorbed and then transmitted across the resonance chain as shown in Figure 4c. A resonance chain connects every single computing seed in the system, thus, zillions of seeds are wired into a massively complex yet a single network as shown in the Figure 4d. It means energy given or radiated out from any part of the chain of materials does not need to leave the material, pass through the air and then return to the material, instead, resonance chain provides a safe passage, reflection/transmission becomes irrelevant. Thus, we realize a new class of wireless communication. It is remarkable that due to the basic material design for maintaining the single chain, screening effect does not affect the communication even though billions or zillions of devices are assembled together."

" Any local frequency map say located in a seed triggers one layer above and above finally covers the entire device via resonance chain, and if necessary, then synchronization could activate other functions located entirely in a new region, down to the entire local nets associated with it."

" Any injected energy is divided among all circuits according to their coupling factor. Since the coupling is not homogeneous, the input energy is distributed non-linearly among all resonance energy levels. We need a tool to change this coupling such that a new energy distribution law or coupling is imposed. This could be done by a conformational change in the structure or re-defining the electronic density distribution. Now, to trigger the spontaneous self-assembly of an existing seed, the existence of three distinct bands of FRP is a sufficient criteria."

" Now, by trial and error in the design, we make sure that the seeds assemble and forms a new structure that has the triplet resonance band in the next frequency range. Recently we have synthesized such a material [42], at higher assembly levels (shape is large) the shape may appear like fractal antenna [43]."

and yes, they have been doing some experimental tests to begin with the confirmation of the theory as it can be seen in the pictures from page 81

finally a direct reference to the functioning of the human brain (in which they have been based to theorize the intelligent computer, and therefore is relevant to the subject treated here) ..

" We have constructed a new computing model for the human brain by considering each composite material of the biological brain as electromagnetic resonance oscillators, based on our published [73,74] and recent experimental results. Our model considers that every single biological product e.g. any biomolecule say protein, DNA, enzymes and their bi-products used by nature is designed to exhibit unique electromagnetic resonance and associated mechanical vibrations. In simple terms we can say, all biological systems have a light (electromagnetic) and sound (mechanical) effect, and both electromagnetic and mechanical effects play an equal role in governing the neuron firing while neuroscience ignores the electromagnetic part and considers mechanical ionic movement controls everything in any living cell or neurons. The squarely parallel chemical and physical protocol is then implemented in creating an entire model of the brain, we believe that this step would fundamentally change the way biology is being studied today. We have noted above that the genes are linked to proteins electromagnetically and chemically as a route to synthesize and evolve entire architecture in a programmed manner. Though existing neuroscience [72] has concretely established the chemical link, it does not explain how self-assembly begins at the atomic scale and ends up in the meter scale, therefore, our electromagnetic interaction model is also an additional framework to provide the missing link."

in the text all is very widely developed including independent description of each of the sense smell, sight, etc.

MORE DISCOVERIES AND IDEAS THAT SUPPORT IT

They have based their theory (in which they have already developed some practical section, as can be read) on how the human mind works and indeed themselves are finding clues pointing in that direction as the total control (regardless of chemistry) of microtubule growth using electromagnetic fields:

K protein self-assembly via tunneling current: effect of electromagnetic pumping during spontaneous growth of microtubule
http://www.nature.com/srep/2014/141203/srep07303/full/srep07303.html

" We observe how these molecules form a linear chain and then chains self-assemble into 2D sheet, an essential for microtubule, —fundamental nano-tube in a cellular life form. Even without using GTP, or any chemical reaction, but applying particular ac signal using specially designed antenna around atomic sharp tip we could carry out the self-assembly, however, if there is no electromagnetic pumping, no self-assembly is observed. In order to verify this atomic scale observation, we have built an artificial cell-like environment with nano-scale engineering and repeated spontaneous growth of tubulin protein to its complex with and without electromagnetic signal. We used 64 combinations of plant, animal and fungi tubulins and several doping molecules used as drug, and repeatedly observed that the long reported common frequency region where protein folds mechanically and its structures vibrate electromagnetically. Under pumping, the growth process exhibits a unique organized behavior unprecedented otherwise. Thus, 'common frequency point' is proposed as a tool to regulate protein complex related diseases in the future."

However, apart from the work they have done, it is important to see if it can be found important functions of electromagnetic fields on biological systems and at different scales, since if these exist and have an important function may be nothing more and nothing less than a reflection of the fields at different scales that are pointed above, namely a reflection of consciousness at different levels.

we start by the

WATER

for being the most abundant compound in biological beings, and also because its interaction with electromagnetic fields is extremely interesting and far from trivial, tas it appears from numerous scientific studies in recent years:

Illuminating Water and Life
http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Mae-Wan_Ho/publication/279066458...

" Emilio and other colleagues extended conventional QED theory to the condensed phase of liquids. They show that interaction between the vacuum electromagnetic field and water induces coherent excitations that lead to the formation of large, stable coherent domains (CDs) about 100 nm in diameter, resulting in the condensation into the liquid phase at some critical density. These CDs are present in liquid water at ordinary temperature and pressure, and may be responsible for all the special properties of water including life itself (Arani et al., 1995; Del Giudice, 2007; Del Giudice Q6 and Vitiello, 2006; Del Giudice et al., 1988, 2010a,b). Each CD of water is effectively a resonating cavity produced by the electromagnetic field that ends up trapping the field because the photon acquires an imaginary mass, so the frequency of the CD electromagnetic field becomes much smaller than the frequency of the free field with the same wavelength."

" The frequency of the trapped EMF lies in the infrared (IR) region of the spectrum. The oscillation of the electron clouds of water molecules participating in the coherent dynamics pushes one electron per molecule just below the ionization threshold. Therefore CDs become pools of quasi-free electrons."

on the other hand, say briefly that the

DNA

has electrical characteristics that can react with the electromagnetic field

Searching for Electrical Properties, Phenomena and Mechanisms in the Construction and Function of Chromosomes
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3962117/

The structural components of chromosomes corresponded with the components of electrical transformers (i.e. generators, chargers, conductors, capacitors (condensers), switches, transmitters, receivers, transformers, currents, and electric grids).

The functions of chromosomes display electromagnetic interactions and phenomena, such as attractions, repulsions, vibration, resonance, breaks, and fusions which are known in physics and electrical engineering; are studied using the same methods; measured with the same units for energy; obey the same physical laws and equations; and are described with the same terminology.

Heterochromatin, which comprises about 97% of the building materials of human chromosomes, has been considered to be unimportant, inert, genetically inactive, barren, non-functional and useless “junk” DNA. We suggest that heterochromatin be considered a very important area in chromosomes, actively generating and operating their own electrical forces and mechanisms.

Because of their electrical properties, and related forces and mechanisms, chromosomes should be regarded not only as vehicles for carrying genes and inheritance, but also as generators, transformers, conductors, condensers, switchers, transmitters and receivers in electric circuits, capable of operating electric currents or moving charges.

The electrical currents and mechanisms may play important roles in the essential function of chromosomes, such as gene regulation and expression; attraction, pairing and separation of chromosomes during cell division; transporting electrons, ions and other particles between DNA structures; and in moving enzymes along DNA molecules."

and curiously relating some electrical properties of DNA with electromagnetic theories of mind we have this text from the blog of Jon Lieff:

Electric DNA and Mind
http://jonlieffmd.com/blog/human-brain/electric-dna-mind

" Now, recent research shows that DNA functions as an electrical wire in a complex circuit. Critical enzymes that repair DNA have an electrical mechanism involving clusters of iron and sulfur. These metallic clusters allow proteins that are part of the genetic and epigenetic complexes to move electrons. These same clusters operate in many other biological processes including photosynthesis and mitochondrial energy production. Since this research is just beginning, other electric mechanisms could be involved in the complex function of DNA. Do these electrical properties allow DNA networks to respond instantly to mind? How important are these newly discovered electrical properties of DNA and are they related to a theory that electromagnetic forces connect mind, matter and brain? What is the relation of electric DNA and mind?."

In several texts included in http://emmind.net also it is referred to the possible relationship of DNA with biophotons, and also about possible solitons in its structure, adding DNA and chromatin to the very possible (and logically necessary) participants of the informative interaction of electromagnetic fields.

FRÖHLICH MODES

Then there are the fields generated by Fröhlich modes in different macromolecules

Fröhlich Condensate: Emergence of Synergetic Dissipative Structures in Information Processing Biological and Condensed Matter Systems
http://www.mdpi.com/2078-2489/3/4/601/htm

" ..in Fröhlich model vibrational-polar modes are excited by a continuous supply of energy pumped by an external source, while these modes interact with the surrounding medium acting as a thermal bath. The interplay of these two effects—pumping of energy subtracting entropy from the system and dissipative internal effects adding entropy to the system—may lead to the emergence of complex behaviour in the system consisting in what can be called Fröhlich effect : Provided the energy supply is sufficiently large compared with the energy loss, the system attains a stationary state in which the energy that feeds the polar modes is channelled into the modes with the lowest frequencies. The latter largely increase their populations at the expenses of the other higher-in-frequency modes, in a way reminiscent of a Bose–Einstein condensation [7]. This highly excited subset of modes may exhibit long-range phase correlations of an electret type [8].

Fröhlich’s synchronous large-scale collective oscillations imply inter-cellular microwave emissions which would constitute a non-chemical and non-thermal interaction between cells. These oscillations could therefore be revealed by detection of emissions of GHz or THz radiation."

They has been inferred in DNA, water..

" Earlier experiments looking after Fröhlich effect were not conclusive, but now as notice above a 'second generation' of experiments are becoming available. They require further improvement, but already some preliminary results are encouraging [9]: Some evidence of a non-thermal influence of coherent microwave radiation on the genome conformational state in E. coli has been reported, which may indicate that chromosomal DNA could be the target of mm microwave irradiation within this system. Also low intensity microwave irradiation of leukocytes results in a significant increase in bio-photon emission in the optical range, the origin of which is thought to involve DNA. Also it is worth noticing the possible influence of the concept of bio-coherence on the very particular dipolar system, which is water. It can be considered the possibility that biological water might itself support coherent dipolar excitations extending over mesoscopic regions; thus water, instead of passive space-filling solvent, would be raised to an important singular position whose full significance has yet to be elucidated."

and microtubules, amog others

" It has been shown that, on application of 1–20 MHz radio-frequency pulses to a heat bath with tubulin dimers, microtubules can assemble orders of magnitude faster in time, suggesting that ultrafast microtubule growth occur through radio-frequency-induced resonant excitation and alignment of tubulin dimers into a cylindrical shape. Besides, the spontaneous emission of coherent 3.1–3.8 MHz signals has also been observed during the subsequent GTP-induced polymerization, and it was found that the resulting microtubules exhibit length-independent electronic and optical properties. Moreover, additional resonance levels were observed when small-molecule drugs bind to tubulin’s docking sites during radio-frequency-induced assembly."

"... it turns out that proteins are capable of finding their cognate partner 10 and even 100 times faster than predicted by Brownian diffusion rates."

" ..electrodynamic interactions are effective at a long-range only in resonant conditions. Here resonance means that the dipole moments of the two molecules – due to conformational vibrations rather than electronic motions – oscillate with a common frequency."

" Experimental evidence for the existence of collective excitations within macromolecules of biological relevance is available for proteins (Painter et al., 1982; Chou, 1985; Xie et al., 2002) and for polynucleotides (DNA and RNA) (Painter et al., 1981; Painter et al., 1982; Chou, 1984; Powell et al., 1987; Fischer et al., 2002) through the observation of low-frequency oscillations modes in the Raman and far-infrared spectra of polar proteins. These spectral features are commonly attributed to coherent collective oscillation modes of the whole molecule (protein or DNA) or of a substantial fraction of its atoms, which could be strong enough to be “felt” by other macromolecules from far away despite thermal noise. Applied to biomolecular dynamics, such coherent excitation could give rise to strong dipolar interactions between biomolecules that would be still active wellbeyond Debye length provided that the dipole moments of molecules oscillate with the same frequency, as mentioned above. Moreover, let us remark that Fröhlich estimated on the basis of theoretical arguments (Fröhlich, 1968; Fröhlich, 1977; Fröhlich, 1980) collective vibrational modes of metabolically active biological systems in the frequency range of 0.1–10 THz. This is in line with spectral features of standard biomolecules."

" The astonishingly efficient organization of the complex network of biochemical reactions inside the cell seems hardly understandable in terms of purely random encounters of biomolecules. On the other hand it seems unavoidable that the oscillating dipole moments of macromolecules activate (because of resonance) mutual and selective attraction forces as is predicted by the first principles of electrodynamics."

Also in the conclusions of

On the role of electrodynamic interactions in long-distance biomolecular recognition
http://arxiv.org/pdf/1403.2477v2.pdf

it can be read:

" In this paper, long-range electrodynamic interactions (EDI) between molecular systems have been investigated within a classical framework. Our prime motivation has to do with biomolecular dynamics in a cellular environment. Potential functions, i.e., force fields, used in standard molecular dynamics softwares [33, 34] usually involve short-distance two-body interaction potentials – i.e., which have minimum influence beyond the Debye length – including screened electrostatic Coulomb forces whose short-range nature is explained by the large amount of ionic entities located in the cell. However, Debye screening only applies for static charges as it becomes inefficient when electric fields with large enough frequency are involved, as was shown by Xammar Oro [2]. Since proteins and DNA/RNA molecules are characterized by high-frequency vibrational motions in the Terahertz domain or above [5, 6], it is worth investigating how forces of electrodynamic nature may influence the dynamics of biomolecules, especially over long distances. EDI are well known in QED whereas almost no literature is available on classical interactions. In this paper, we reported that classical EDI show similar properties as quantum interactions in the dipole limit, i.e., at distances much larger than the dimensions of the molecules involved. Whenever the dipole moments of the molecules oscillate with the same frequency, long-range resonance interactions in 1/r3 are activated. Non-resonant conditions lead to short-range interactions in 1/r6 . Numerical estimates regarding resonance and off-resonance EDI, e.g., the normal frequency shifts or the equivalent dipoles, were provided in section III. Even though the dipole moments needed to overcome thermal noise at large distance could appear large compared to dipole moments of small standard proteins, EDI can be well estimated for two collections of dipoles interacting upon each other, which lead to more realistic values of the dipoles moments involved. Water ordering around protein structures was suggested as a possible mechanism to enhance resonant EDI. In section IV, comparison between classical and quantum EDI was made. In section V, we emphasize why resonant interactions between biomolecules need nonequilibrium to be effective at a long distance, i.e., the excitation of one normal mode of the interacting system should be statistically 'favored' (far beyond Boltzmann fluctuations) compared with other(s) modes. The same conclusion was reached by Tuszynski et al. [35] from numerical estimates. In section II, normal modes have been computed from equations of motion (1) omitting anharmonic contributions, dissipative effects as well as possible external excitations of the oscillating dipoles. Dipole anharmonicities would give rise to nonlinear interactions in normal coordinates. In this case, one might expect long-lived non-equilibrium states lacking energy equipartition among normal modes as, for example, in the case of nonlinearly coupled harmonic oscillators [36]. If so, in a biological context, metabolic energy supply could be of utmost importance to maintain a high degree of excitation in a specific mode despite energy losses. This scenario was originally suggested by Fröhlich [37] who proposed a dynamical model to account for such non-thermal excitations in biological systems. In particular, he showed that a set of coupled normal modes can undergo a condensation phenomenon characterized by the emerging of the mode of lowest frequency containing, in the average, nearly all the energy supply [37]. In the case of two interacting molecules, such a process could ensure the action constant of the mode of lowest frequency to be much greater than the action constant(s) related to other mode(s). Of course, this would result in an effective attractive potential whose amplitude is dependent on the “stored” energy. Finally, it is worth noting that retardation effects at large r bring about interactions with a 1/r dependence [last terms in Eqs. (4)],i.e., of much longer range with respect to the interactions proposed by Fröhlich. This last result could be relevant for a deeper understanding of the highly organized molecular machinery in living matter, as emphasized in the Introduction."

With the search for a solution to the same problems and with similar conclusions, albeit with a different theoretical construction (but that they do not have to be exclusionary) there is the Cosic´s Resonant Recognition Model with considerable amount of experiments confirming it:

Novel Cosic resonance (standing wave) solutions for components of the JAK–STAT cellular signaling pathway: A convergence of spectral density profiles
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2211546315000200

" The protein interactions can be considered a transfer of resonant energy between interacting molecules through an oscillating physical field that could be expressed within the domain of classic photons."

" These serial numerical values for each amino acid represented the distribution of free electron energies along the protein molecule. When spectral analyzed the intrinsic spatial frequency with the most power was employed to predict the molecule’s primary photon emissions. Cosic’s concept is that 'each specific biological function within the protein or DNA is characterized by one frequency'."

From the same school and referred to the same model several studies more:

Campos electromagnéticos planares permiten explicar el acople entre péptidos y moléculas de HLA-II
http://www.scielo.org.ar/scielo.php?pid=S0325-29572015000200006&script=sci_arttext

" Following the recent discovery of planar electromagnetic fields in protein systems, this work proposes a mechanism to explain the action of HLA-II molecules in selecting, attracting and coupling with peptide-antigens prior to their presentation to T-helper cells. The mechanism explains such couplings for the first time without recourse to the molecular “key-lock” paradigm. Using these electromagnetic field patterns, eight peptides were designed that showed better coupling capacity with HLA-II molecules than the native CLIP peptide. The novel methodology enables the design of vaccine-peptides with high binding capacity. The discovered electromagnetic patterns further offer an explanation of the universal coupling capacity of CLIP and give rise to a number of solutions and new concepts in molecular immunology"

Also in relation to other molecules, there is an interesting speculation that arises how some hallucinogenic drugs works in relation to its fluorescence:

Biophotons, hallucinogens, and fluorescence
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0924933811729078

" Also the hollow microtubules (neurofibrillae) could act as light guiding structures. According to Jibu et al. their inner diameter of 15 nm is ideal for light guidance free of thermal noise and loss. Other findings that may be of importance in this context, are the strong flurescence properties of the major hallucinogens: LSD, bufetonine, dimethyl-tryptamine, psilocybine, psilocin, iboguanin, harmine, cannabidinol and mescaline. Furthermore it has been shown that hallucinogenic properties of these substances have a direct correlation to their fluorescence properties and their readyness to donate electrons. As hypothesis we propose that the fluorescence interacts physically with the proposed Biophoton mediated cell to cell communication thus producing hallucinations."

Which leads us to talk about

BIOPHOTONS

and how they can be involved in brain functions

Spatiotemporal Imaging of Glutamate-Induced Biophotonic Activities and Transmission in Neural Circuits
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3893221/

" We observed the glutamate-induced biophotonic activities in mouse sagittal brain slices and found that the extensive biophotonic activities were located at the area of the corpus callosum and the thalamus, and were significantly decreased by the application of PP2A inhibitor (OA), suggesting that the extensive biophotonic activities in these two areas may mainly originate from axons or axonal terminals in the corpus callosum and thalamus, respectively, which may be at least partly due to the active biophotonic transmission along the axons or axonal terminals of cortical projection neurons (Figure 4J).

Interestingly, the initiation of biophotonic activities by glutamate is independent of the action potential and extracellular and intracellular Ca2+ , but the maintenance of the maximal effect was influenced when the action potential was absent or when the extracellular and intracellular Ca2+ were removed constantly. However, both the initiation and maintenance of biophotonic activities were significantly affected by the application of a regional anesthetic (procaine), suggesting a new possible mechanism for anesthetics by interfering with biophotonic transmission via the inhibition of action potential and the function of microtubules [39]. These results illustrate biophotonic activities and transmission in relation to electrical and chemical transmission, and it seems that either electrical or chemical transmission may only provide a basis for the initiation and maintenance of biophotonic activities and transmission."

Superradiant coherent photons and hypercomputation in brain microtubules considered as metamaterials
http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Luigi_Maxmilian_Caligiuri/publication/277132135...

" Several studies have suggested the theoretical possibility of considering human brain as supercomputer using superluminal evanescent photons eventually generated inside its microtubules to manipulate quantum bits in brain. In a previous work we have shown that in the water trapped inside brain microtubules could exist the conditions to allow a spontaneous QED quantum vacuum phase transition towards a macroscopic coherent quantum state characterized by a phased oscillation, at a rescaled frequency, between the water molecules states and an auto-generated electromagnetic field associated to a suitable electronic transition in them. As a result a self-trapped field of superradiant superluminal photons is just generated inside microtubules, characterized by an evanescent tail whose penetration depth is greater than the thickness of microtubules cylinder. In this way the interior of the brain MT cylinders can be considered as a resonant cavity for such superradiant photons whose refraction index depends on the rescaled coherent oscillation frequency. On the other hand it is already theoretical known and experimentally proven that a near perfect tunneling and amplification of evanescent electromagnetic waves is possible in a waveguide filled by a metamaterial. In this paper, basing on the consideration of some structural analogies between man-made metamaterials and some natural biological structures, we just propose the idea to interpret the inner medium of the brain microtubules cylinder as having the properties similar to those characterizing metamaterials and so able to specifically enhance the propagation of evanescent photons inside the neurons."

Emission of mitochondrial biophotons and their effect on electrical activity of membrane via microtubules
http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1012/1012.3371.pdf

" We have investigated the interaction of mitochondrial biophotons with microtubules from a quantum mechanical point of view. Our theoretical analysis indicates that the interaction of biophotons and microtubules causes transitions/fluctuations of microtubules between coherent and incoherent states. A significant relationship between the fluctuation function of microtubules and alpha-EEG diagrams is elaborated on in this paper. We argue that the role of biophotons in the brain merits special attention."

"All living cells of plants, animals and humans continuously emit ultraweak biophotons (ultraweak electromagnetic waves) in the optical range of the spectrum, which is associated with their physiological states and can be measured using special equipment. Neural cells also continuously emit biophotons. The intensity of biophotons is in direct correlation with neural activity, cerebral energy metabolism, EEG activity, cerebral blood flow and oxidative processes [37,50].

According to Van Wijk et al. [96], there are significant correlations between the fluctuations in biophoton emission and fluctuations in the strength of electrical alpha wave production in the brain. Some unpublished observations suggest that the state of the biophoton field of a person may be connected to the state of the brain as measured by the EEG (e.g., degree of synchronization and coherence) [9]. Certain meditative states characterized by a high degree of coherence in the EEG may well be accompanied by a high degree of coherence in the biophoton field [9], although measurements correlating the coherence of the biophoton field and the EEG readings have not been made yet."

" According to Bókkon et al. [11], the real biophoton intensity within cells and neurons can be considerably higher than one would expect from the measurement of ultraweak bioluminescence, which is generally carried out macroscopically several centimeters away from the tissue or cell culture [86]. Moreover, the most significant fraction of natural biophoton intensity cannot be accurately measured because it is absorbed during cellular processes."

Increased photon emission from the head while imagining light in the dark is correlated with changes in electroencephalographic power: Support for Bokkon’s biophoton hypothesis
http://5mp.eu/fajlok2/bokkon-brain-imagery/dotta_et_al_2012_www.5mp.eu_.pdf

" Bókkon’s hypothesis that photons released from chemical processes within the brain produce biophysical pictures during visual imagery has been supported experimentally. In the present study measurements by a photomultiplier tube also demonstrated significant increases in ultraweak photon emissions (UPEs) or biophotons equivalent to about 5 × 10-11 W/m2 from the right sides of volunteer’s heads when they imagined light in a very dark environment compared to when they did not. Simultaneous variations in regional quantitative electroencephalographic spectral power (V2/Hz) and total energy in the range of ∼10-12 J from concurrent biophoton emissions were strongly correlated (r = 0.95). The calculated energy was equivalent to that associated with action potentials from about 107 cerebral cortical neurons. We suggest these results support Bókkon’s hypothesis that specific visual imagery is strongly correlated with ultraweak photon emission coupled to brain activity."

We have already seen the possible relationship of biophotons with brainwaves (EEG) generated in the brain at great scale, as another layer in the electromagnetic theory of multiple layers creating a integrated conscience is right to talk about these and their synchronization, is the section of

BRAIN WAVES

Is interesting to note at this point the importance of synchronization between large groups of neurons to the superior mental functions, and how the synchronization of electrical activity at different frequencies; alpha, beta, delta (with the subsequent generation of electromagnetic fields) is totally related to cognitive functions, and desynchronization with the appearance of different mental illnesses, as can be read on:

" Erol Başar leads the readers to surpass the view of the mind as emerging from brain oscillatory processes, in favor of the view that the mind emerges from the multiple oscillatory processes characterizing the homeostatic interactions between the brain and body visceral organs and tissues."

In the brain must be taken into account realities like the epaptic coupling in which extracellular fields feed back the action potentials of neuronal membranes

Endogenous fields enhanced stochastic resonance in a randomly coupled neuronal network
http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Hai_Tao_Yu/publication/265512167...

" Endogenous field, evoked by structured neuronal network activity in vivo, is correlated with many vital neuronal processes. In this paper, the effects of endogenous fields on stochastic resonance (SR) in a randomly connected neuronal network are investigated. The network consists of excitatory and inhibitory neurons and the axonal conduction delays between neurons are also considered. Numerical results elucidate that endogenous field feedback results in more rhythmic macroscope activation of the network for proper time delay and feedback coefficient. The response of the network to the weak periodic stimulation can be notably enhanced by endogenous field feedback. Moreover, the endogenous field feedback delay plays a vital role in SR. We reveal that appropriately tuned delays of the feedback can either induce the enhancement of SR, appearing at every integer multiple of the weak input signal’s oscillation period, or the depression of SR, appearing at every integer multiple of half the weak input signal’s oscillation period for the same feedback coefficient."

As part of the equality between consciousness and the vital principle, being the first only a more complex version of the second, we should see if there are functions of the electromagnetic fields covering the inside of living systems such different cells so that these are vital, and a visible sample of these fields and their informative (and vital) function is in the study of

MORPHOGENESIS

Endogenous bioelectric cues as morphogenetic signals in vivo
http://emmind.net/openpapers_repos/Endogenous_Fields-Mind/General/EM_Morphogenetics/2015_Endogenous_bioelectric_cues_as_morphogenetic_signals_in_vivo.pdf

" More recent work has shown that targeted perturbation of transmembrane voltage results in specific, coherent changes of large-scale patterning. Remarkably, modulation of resting potential does not in itself impair embryonic viability, and it is often possible to dissociate subtle patterning functions of bioelectric states from basic housekeeping physiology of cells. Thus, Vmem levels in key groups of cells have been implicated in controlling the head-to-tail (Beane et al, 2011) and left-right (Aw et al, 2010) body axis polarity, the patterning of craniofacial structures (Vandenberg et al., 2011), the induction of eye development (Pai et al, 2012), and the initiation of Xenopus tail regeneration (Adams et al, 2007; Tseng et al., 2011)."

"Given the abilities of voltage gradients to exert influence both cell autonomously and over long distances, what kind of patterning information can bioelectric signals mediate? Transmembrane potential can specify issue identity at the level of cell groups (Levin, 2012) as evidenced by recent findings showing that the artificial manipulation of Vmem (hyperpolarization to a specific level) in developing Xenopus embryos can turn cell groups far from the anterior neuroectoderm to an eye fate (Pai et al, 2012). Vmem changes can also control large-scale axial polarity, such as the head-tail polarity of regenerating planarian fragments (Beane et al, 2011; Marsh & Beams, 1947; Marsh & Beams, 1952), and the left-right patterning of the early frog embryo (Levin, 2006; Levin et al, 2006). In the latter series of studies, a pharmacological screen first implicated several ion transporters in establishment of correct laterality (Levin et al, 2002); serotonergic mechanisms mediating the effect were later found using a suppression screen (Fukumoto et al, 2005; Fukumoto et al, 2005). Transmembrane voltage patterns across tissues can also provide positional information to guide migratory cells in vertebrate neurulation (Shi & Borgens, 1995) or specify the spatial patterns of gene expression during craniofacial morphogenesis (Vandenberg et al, 2011) – a kind of subtle prepattern that underlies the biochemical and genetic prepatterns that drive anatomy. In addition to providing large-scale anatomical identity and controlling the geometry of gene expression, bioelectric gradients can act as master regulators, triggering highly orchestrated, self-limiting downstream patterning cascades such as regeneration of an entire appendage. For example, regeneration of the tadpole tail can be induced by very simple signals consisting of modulations of proton or sodium ion movement in the blastema during non-regenerative stages (Adams et al, 2007; Tseng et al, 2010)."

at the conclusion:

" Endogenous membrane voltage are one key component of the rich set of electromagnetic events taking place in living tissues; their spatio-temporal distribution represents important, yet still under appreciated, sources of instructive information in the control of morphogenesis. Recent work, making use of modern experimental techniques, has allowed scientists to probe the connections between these biophysical signals and the molecular-genetic downstream pathways that control cell behavior and thus large-scale patterning."

one thing that draw attention in this ambit is the subordination of the chemistry to the most important and primary biophysical signaling, as it can read in

Endogenous bioelectrical networks store non-genetic patterning information during development and regeneration
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1113/jphysiol.2014.271940/pdf

" Studies reveal that the exact channel or pump used to trigger such morphological changes is often irrelevant – many sodium, potassium, chloride, or proton conductances can be used as long as the appropriate bioelectrical state is reached."

The Electromagnetic Nature of Life - The Contribution of W. Sedlak to the Understanding of the Essence of Life
http://www.kul.pl/files/57/pracownicy/wnuk/artykuly/Wnuk_i2001s32.pdf

where it can be read:

" In this article we have attempted to present the more important ideas regarding Sedlak´s concepts on the electromagnetic nature of life. 'Life' he described as a process, quantum in nature, expressing an electromagnetic coupling of chemical reactions with electronic processes on a protein-nucleic semiconducting substrate. As he grasped it, 'Life' as well as 'Consciousness', is electromagnetic in nature."

" He assumed that the nature of the field environment has not changed, beyond changes in quantitative proportions. On the other hand the chemical environment of life 'reduced' to the electrochemical aspect, namely redox potential. Next, he also accepted that the fundamental determinant of life is the environment as a 'planetary complex of field information', on the other hand the developing life had to rest on a system giving the possibility of a subtle reception of minimal field impulses and optimal information reception, that is, rest on a semiconductor system [3]. In this case, the physical model of the foundation of life is the amphoretic colloid, in which the system 'colloidal particle/water' is treated as the p-n junction, know from electronics. This junction is a redox electromagnetic oscilator, where the lenght of the emitted wave is smaller, as the frequency of changes in the system increases. This model system, which manifest electromagnetic functions, is considered by Sedlak as a 'minimun' of life [4]. Analogous functions are manifested on higher levels of biosystem organization, including the electromagnetic activity of the brain. Variability of the electrical state of such an amphoteric colloidal particle in water is great due to the generation, as a result of the rasiolysis of water: of radicals, hydrated protons and electrons, etc. Amphotericity enables an easy polarizability of this semiconductor in the presence of a heterogeneous field, and at the same time is a requisite for electrical, magnetic, mechanical, and thermal aniosotropy. As a consequence, there is a possibility of existence of a system that is more complex functionally than materially, richer in 'action' than 'content'. Considering that a complicated function does not require the complexity of the chemical substrate, Sedlak accepts that 'the function of life could have developed on a simple material substrate'. while the chemical content in the course of the evolution was catching up with the function, modulating and making it more efficient [4]."

" In accord with Sedlak´s proposed conception, life is not only a mass of organic compounds, because its dynamic and fundamental 'constants' are primarily all electromagnetic processes that take place in the environment protein semiconductors [6]. To the reality of life belongs the 'quantum life junction' [13] or coupling between chemical reactions and electronic processes. According to one of the characteristic designation in this regard: 'Life is an electron-photon-phonon diffraction grating, which vibrates in the medium of a piezoelectric protein semiconductor, and which is powered by chemical energy of metabolic processes' [14]. The organism on the other hand 'Is a protein system of piezoelectric semiconductors having chemical and electronic functions coupled with a wave-type internal coordination, surronunded by an electromagnetic wave, which is externally emitted' [14]. The biosphere, by the same token, is a system of organisms as oscillators interacting electromagnetically."

[Note: related to the origin of life and its organization I find interesting, as being related to the explained ideas, the following papers of Gargi Mitra-Delmotte and Asoke Nath Mitra

Softening the “Crystal Scaffold” for Life’s Emergence
http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1108/1108.0309.pdf

" Del Giudice’s group studies how water can organize on hydrophilic surfaces forming coherent domains (loaning energy from the quantum vacuum), plus quasifree electrons, whose excitations produce cold vortices, aligning to ambient fields. Their electric and magnetic dipolar modes can couple to oscillatory (electric-organic dipoles) and/or rotary (magnetic-mineral dipoles), besides responding to magnetic potentials. Thus, imprinted electromagnetic patterns of catalytic colloids—compared with Cairns-Smith’s “crystal scaffold”—on their structured water partners could have equipped the latter with a selection basis for “choosing” their context-based “soft-matter” (de Gennes) replacements. We consider the potential of the scenario of an external control on magnetic colloids forming in the Hadean hydrothermal setting (of Russell and coworkers)—via a magnetic rock field—conceptually enabling self-assembly, induction of asymmetries, response effects towards close-to-equilibrium dynamics, and associative networks, besides providing a coherent environment for stabilizing associated symmetry-broken quanta and their feedback interactions with those of coherent water domains, to address the emergence of metabolism and replication."

that is, the conscious impulse orders the matter and this in turn generates more complex consciousness. (life and consciousness it's the same, there are only varying degrees of complexity).]

however, between electromagnetic mind theories, seems more complete the theory being proposed in the paper cited at the beginning

http://www.mdpi.com/2078-2489/5/1/28

because it´s more integrative and include multiple frequencies at multiple scales and can adopt various of the other theories key pieces.

PHILOSOPHY - PANPSYCHISM

Finally all this leads to a panpsychist view of consciousness, the idea that a fundamental entity in this case the photon is the first piece of consciousness, the smaller part, a proto-conscious impulse, and that more or less ordered sets of these (the electromagnetic fields in this case) generated consciences more or less complex, including a temporary self.

Panpsychism is a philosophy of a long tradition; Heraclitus, Empedocles, Bruno, Cardano, Leibniz, Spinoza, Schopenhauer, Priestly, William James, Mach, Bergson, Whitehead, Eddington, Broad, Bohm, Waddington, Dyson, and recently, Strawson, Nagel, Skrbina, Hameroff, Chalmers, Seager, Rosenberg, Schooler, and others have supported it. Here the introduction to the text of Chalmers Chalmers:

Panpsychism and Panprotopsychism
http://consc.net/papers/panpsychism.pdf

" Panpsychism, taken literally, is the doctrine that everything has a mind. In practice, people who call themselves panpsychists are not committed to as strong a doctrine. They are not committed to the thesis that the number two has a mind, or that the Eiffel tower has a mind, or that the city of Canberra has a mind, even if they believe in the existence of numbers, towers, and cities.

Instead, we can understand panpsychism as the thesis that some fundamental physical entities have mental states. For example, if quarks or photons have mental states, that suffices for panpsychism to be true, even if rocks and numbers do not have mental states. Perhaps it would not suffice for just one photon to have mental states. The line here is blurry, but we can read the definition as requiring that all members of some fundamental physical types (all photons, for example) have mental states.

For present purposes, the relevant sorts of mental states are conscious experiences. I will understand panpsychism as the thesis that some fundamental physical entities are conscious: that is, that there is something it is like to be a quark or a photon or a member of some other fundamental physical type. This thesis is sometimes called panexperientialism, to distinguish it from other varieties of panpsychism (varieties on which the relevant entities are required to think or reason, for example), but I will simply call it panpsychism here.

Panpsychism is sometimes dismissed as a crazy view, but this reaction on its own is not a serious objection. While the view is counterintuitive to some, there is good reason to think that any view of consciousness must embrace some counterintuitive conclusions. Furthermore, intuitions about panpsychism seem to vary heavily with culture and with historical period. The view has a long history in both Eastern and Western philosophy, and many of the greatest philosophers have taken it seriously. It is true that we do not have much direct evidence for panpsychism, but we also do not have much direct evidence against it, given the difficulties of detecting the presence or absence of consciousness in other systems. And there are indirect reasons, of a broadly theoretical character, for taking the view seriously."

" In my Hegelian argument, the thesis is materialism, the antithesis is dualism, and the

synthesis is panpsychism. The argument for the thesis is the causal argument for materialism (and against dualism). The argument for the antithesis is the conceivability argument for dualism (and against materialism). Synthesized, these yield the Hegelian argument for panpsychism. In effect, the argument presents the two most powerful arguments for and against materialism and dualism, and motivates a certain sort of panpsychism as a view that captures the virtues of both views and the vices of neither."

because among others in materialism we have the hard problem of consciousness

In Defence of Strong Emergentist Panpsychism
http://philpapers.org/archive/SYMIDO.pdf

" ‘The hard problem of consciousness is the problem of experience’ (Chalmers, 2002: 247). A being is conscious in this sense when they experience states of ‘perceptual experience, bodily sensation [or] mental imagery’ (Chalmers, 2002: 247‐248). Each phenomenal experience, such as Mary’s seeing red, has a phenomenal character or qualia. The hard problem is how and why we have qualia. Why do physical processes give rise to qualitative experience, and how does this type of qualitative consciousness come about? On this conception of consciousness, the territory is much more unforgivin."

In the following known Strawson paper (a paper cited in other 235 scientists document) they go dismantling logically non-panpsychist propositions, such as that proposed the emergence of the liquidity of water molecules as comparable with the emergence of consciousness and clearly it demonstrates that is not the same (that it is not the same type of deductive leap, that the theoretical basis used in one, are nonexistent in the other). And he gives his reasons to finally be panpsychism the most realistic and lacking in logical gaps philosophy.

Realistic monism: why physicalism entails panpsychism
http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~drkelly/StrawsonRealisticPhysicalism2006.pdf

On the other hand, dualism is absurd because if all living things has a spirit or a soul (not to mention the doctrines of the major religions such as Christianity which says that humans have souls and that the animals are like machines different from us) where we end? bacterias have a soul? And the soul of the bacterias in our gut are independent or belong to the soul of man that feeds them? absurd questions when so much are discovering in Biology (regardless of whether religion proposes that the soul goes to heaven or goes to a reincarnation, that is a nonsense because of ignorance and to calm egos, as was stated for years that the earth was the center of the 'universe'') furthermore, with the development of biophysics now we begin to have answers with great potential and everything points to a panpsychist vision.


Inhttp://emmind.net in the main sectionEndogenous Fields & Mind, you will find in addition to everything indicated some other clues that has not been included here. You can also find other sections that are related to what is listed in the previous section, so there is the sectionApplied Fields - Experimental where radiation of different characteristics are applied (always with non-ionizing low power) and are found different responses, with several being used clinically anf for therapeutic purposes. There is also theApplied Fields - Hazards section which refers to unwanted and harmful effects of radiation that is produced both by communications systems and by electrical distribution systems and are discussed in the documents of the section. Finally there are a few more speculative and fantastic sections hoewer have been added because that may be extensions of the theory and because the creator of the website intuits (and more) real:Nonlocality & Fields andEarth Fields - Gaia.
