We must always look at how the energy of the body is set up in the first place, and cavities provide the mechanism. Cavity physics is the study of energy in enclosed spaces, as these spaces can amplify and do other interesting things to energy. It was the study of what is called black-body radiation that led to Planck’s constant and broke open quantum physics early in the twentieth century. How do cavities apply to the human body? Well, our bodies are structured around cavities. There are the three major cavities: the cranial, thoracic and abdominal. Within these there are all kinds of other cavities, at just about every scale. The organs and glands are cavities-like, as are the bones, the vessels, and so on. Then there are the cells themselves which are cavities and some even have further cavity-like structures internal or external to them. And the organs are themselves made up of microtubules and nanotubes. You get the picture! Cavity physics has relevance to the human body, although biologists don’t often see this. The ancients did, such as those practicing traditional Chinese medicine.

What might the cavities be doing in terms of energy and information in the body? Storing and tuning zero-point energy. Zero-point energy (ZPE) is the energy left when matter is cooled to its lowest energy state, at absolute zero temperature. All that is left is the motion or vibration of virtual quantum particles. This ZPE field has never been measured because it’s everywhere and there is no difference in potential, so measurement is not possible. This energy does not flow. It’s just there, as the “field of all fields.”[1] Recent studies have shown, for the first time, that zero-point energy is used by the body, at least by some of the water molecules in the body, which through their use of zero-point energy can actually work to mediate DNA processes, such as the production of proteins.[2] However, I am the first to say that we call this energy in the NES system “Source energy,” since we don’t really know that it is ZPE. It probably is, but we don’t know definitively yet.

My first experiment in terms of cavities was with a biologist and an electronics boffin in Australia. At a cost of hundreds of thousands of Australian dollars, I made a huge model of a hydrogen atom, and then put an antenna in it to see if it was picking up energy from space. We shielded it, of course, like a Faraday cage, but we still picked up very narrow bands at over 1 GHz. They were narrow “magnetic” spikes, forming a pattern above and below a low-carrier frequency. We considered the hydrogen molecule as a set of cavities in space. And we detected energy, seemingly from nowhere! We didn’t know what we had, but the idea intrigued me—the idea of cavities as attracting, storing and even tuning energy, possibly ZPE.

I used the idea over many years to show how the human body-field could borrow energy from space, if it had something like what is in electronics called a co-axial resonator. As I said, the body is full of cavities: cells, tubules, bags, sinuses, organs and some really important ones in the head called the cerebral vesicles. According to our theory, all of these structures are part of a resonating system that collects energy. This collecting goes on at the atomic level, and I believe that collecting goes on up the anatomical scale, in larger and larger structures, until we get to the three major cavities in the body—the cranial, thoracic and abdominal cavities.

As the great physicist Richard Feynman reminded us, chemistry is based on quantum physics, which is all about energy transfer, between atoms and molecules. Light can also transfer energy inside a molecule and this has been the subject of major study in recent years by biophysicists. Of course, light, the photon, is of major importance to physics, and quantum electrodynamics (QED) may be of major importance to biology.[3] Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp, of Germany, has made the discovery that living cells, in the human body and in other organisms, emit ultraweak light.[4] That is an important development in the overall picture of an energetic structure which envelops and even directs the function of all living things, which we call the body-field.

Now not all of the ideas surrounding ZPE appeal to me: for instance that the ZPE field is a source of free energy that could give rise to a perpetual motion machine, as some researchers are looking into. But as a component of the body-field, the ZPE field is so important that we can’t do without it, or something like it. Bioenergetics researchers are starting to explore this, and it may open a whole new window on biology.

In NES body-field theory, there are several fundamental fields that must be present to create and support the human body-field. The human body-field is a special type of field that goes with all living things. It is not exactly what Rupert Sheldrake calls a morphogenetic field, although I like his ideas. My theory identifies a complex structure to the body-field, so it is not an amorphous entity, like an aura or even the chakras—we are not talking metaphysics here! In terms of quantum, I believe that living organisms represent a “special case” in biology of the use of fields and forces, be they quantum or not, as we just don’t know really. But let me get back to specifics and list the minimum requirements of a body-field for you now:

·Zero-point energy (Source energy in NES terminology)

·An electrostatic charge, which is created both by ionized particles in solution (such as in cells) and the action potential of the elements of the nervous system.

·Light, even in small amounts, of certain high-energy frequencies, both internal and external to the body.

·Gravity and at least a weak source of magnetism, which is why “Earth energies,” such as those that contribute to geopathic stress, and external magnetic fields, such as the Schumann resonance, may have a subtle but profound effect upon the body and body-field.

·Magnetic confetti, a term I have borrowed from Dr. Bevan Reid, of Australia, who, like physicist Harold Apsden, believes that the electron has some sort of magnetic envelope or capsule. Information exchange takes place when an electron’s magnetic capsule is broken open through an interaction with a photon. Magnetics fragments, which Reid called “magnetic confetti,” may be left over from the exchange. However, I believe that what Reid calls the electron’s “capsule” may actually be the electron’s spherical standing wave, which has a charge and forms magnetic patterns in space, according to astrophysicist Milo Wolff’s space resonance theory.

As I said, whether or not this body-field is some sort of QED field remains a huge question that we cannot absolutely answer yet, but we think it is. And we believe cavities are a big deal in terms of the biophysics of the body. Think of musical instruments, which each have their own shape and so tune energy differently. The body has its own musical score. Everything vibrates and has its own frequency, everything moves—from subatomic particles to molecule to cells, the organs such as heart and stomach and so on have their own movements, the blood flows—you get the idea. Cavities, then, attract ZPE, and they store it for use by the body, and the cavities may even amplify or “tune” this energy because of the structure or shape of the particular cavity and its movement. Where you get energy exchanges, you get information exchanges, which is the basis of the information regulation processes of the human body-field
