Full-text available
Our earlier work showed that the band pattern of electromagnetic (EMF) wave frequency eigenstates of both inanimate and animate systems can be described by a Pythagorean-like (acoustic) math equation. The distribution patterns of discrete EMF-frequencies were revealed by acoustic-like scaling of about 500 EMF experimental frequency data of typical...

We submit a comprehensive theory on the creation of first life conditions on the basis of current physics and cosmology. It is shown that symmetry breaking from a 5D homogeneous manifold of condensed boson fields, generates 4D photonic (electromagnetic) and magnetic monopole energies as well as toroidal operator conditions. These are instrumental i...

Meta-analysis of current biomedical and biophysical literature revealed the presence of a fractal pattern of discrete EMF frequency bands, in a wide range of animate and non-animate systems, framed as the Generalized Music (GM)-scale biophysical principle and also applied by us to study cognitive brain function as well as quantum mechanical aspects...
Article
Full-text available
We present a comprehensive concept for the fabric of reality and the creation of life through the generation and integration of information, modelled through toroidal processing of wave energy. We submit that human consciousness cannot be understood in a reductionist context, but that it is rather an expression of a cosmic modality or a universal c...

Conformational states of living cells have typical spatial arrangements of atoms, that are characteristic for building, homeostasis, decay and apoptosis. We earlier found clear evidence, indicating that such states of biomolecules are related to spectral coherence and decoherence frequency bands, providing a quantitative physical resource. The patt...
Chapter
Full-text available
In this chapter, we postulate an integral concept of information processing in the universe, on the basis of a new biophysical principle, coined the generalized music (GM)-scale of EMF frequencies. Meta-analyses of current biomedical literature revealed the presence of a distinct pattern of discrete EMF frequency bands in a wide range of animate an...
Article
Full-text available
We submit a generalized interpretation of quantum physics on the basis of resolution of quantum indeterminacy, emerging from an integral and simultaneous change of physical relationships at the Planck scale. This model postulates "space-time instants of now" framed by us as "blinks of change" in the physical world. These "instants of now" can only...

In the transition from inanimate-to animate systems in (pre)-biological evolution, clay minerals may have played a crucial role. The current conjecture is that this was due to their structural organization leading to absorption, selection, and protection of organic biological precursor molecules, promoting the polymerization of precursor molecules...

The current science scene displays its own basic problems, by some called the “inflation in science”. The particular, evidently counter-productive, elements are generally very well realized by individual scientists, but often are not openly discussed in the scientific community. These calamities include the lack of basic analysis of the current sci...

The current geometric and thermodynamic approaches in protein folding studies do not provide a definite solution to understanding mechanisms of folding of biological proteins. A major problem is that the protein is first synthesized as a linear molecule that subsequently must reach its native configuration in an extremely short time. Hydrophobicity...

In 1905 Einstein proposed the idea that electromagnetic radiation is quantized and appears only in defined energy packets. The energy of a photon for a given type of radiation can be computed using the frequency relation published in 1900 by Planck. It is proposed in the present paper that the energy distribution of these packets is according to a...

Abstract Carcinogenesis fits in a frequency pattern of electromagnetic field (EMF) waves, in which a gradual loss of cellular organization occurs. Such generation of cancer features can be inhibited by adequate exposure to coherent electromagnetic frequencies. However, cancer can also be initiated and promoted at other distinct frequencies of elect...

Our brain is not a "stand alone" information processing organ: it acts as a central part of our integral nervous system with recurrent information exchange with the entire organism and the cosmos. In this study, the brain is conceived to be embedded in a holographic structured field that interacts with resonant sensitive structures in the various c...
Article
The current protein folding literature is reviewed. Two main approaches to the problem of folding were selected for this review: geometrical and biophysical. The geometrical approach allows the formulation of topological restrictions on folding, that are usually not taken into account in the construction of physical models. In particular, the topol...
