Federico Faggin
The Search for a Scientific Theory of Consciousness

Wagner Alegretti, motivated by his own out-of-body experiences which started during hischildhood, began consciousness research and education in 1980, specializing in subtle energy and psi phenomena.Bioenergy or chi has been known for millennia but its detection, measurement and theoretical understanding has eluded science. To help cover this serious gap in the comprehension of reality and consciousness manifestation, Alegretti designed and conducted a series of experiments using fMRI, aiming to shed light on:

  1. Neurological effects of the execution of bioenergy techniques and the vibrational state; and
  2. Physical effects of bioenergy and the mechanism of consciousness-physics interaction via bioenergy.

Alegretti intends to present thought-provoking findings from experiments like bioenergy transmission to different types of substances like "fMRI phantom" liquid. Alegretti will discuss potential ramifications and applications of these breakthroughs, including the development of related "bioenergy technology."

TIME: Friday, OCTOBER 30, 2015 at 7:30 p.m., (doors open at 7 p.m.) 
PLACE: Unity Community Church – Y.E.S. Hall, 3391 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto 

Speaker's Bio

Wagner Alegretti, an electrical engineer,worked in power generation, medical equipment and software development. He has been conducting research in the field of consciousness and multidimensionality for more than 30 years and has extensive personal experience of bioenergy and psychic phenomena, including out-of-body experiences since childhood. He is the author of the book Retrocognitions: An Investigation into Memories of Past Lives and the Period Between Lives.

He has been instrumental in bringing multidimensional consciousness science into the international arena since he left Brazil and moved to the USAin 1994, and also in the establishment of the International Academy of Consciousness (IAC) and its research campus. He served as president of IACfrom 2001 to 2014 and is currently one of its mostsenior researchers and faculty members. In 1984, Alegretti started working on the development of bioenergy (chi, subtle or vital energy) transducers. His pursuit for a reliable means of biofield detection led tohis ongoing research program employing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

An FMBR Workshop
"Bioenergy Techniques" 
With Wagner Alegretti

The study of consciousness and the mastery of bioenergy (also known as chi, prana, life force or subtle energy) are vital for the promotion of physical health, emotional balance, improved quality of life and spiritual growth, including the development of lucid psychic abilities and the capacity to produce out-of-body experiences. This workshop covers different qualities of energy and presents case studies to enrich the participants' understanding of the mechanisms of energy fields. It discusses different types of energies emanating from nature, with the analysis of various places and situations whose energies are particularly good or particularly negative. The instructor will also share some of the interesting results and images of his innovative and exciting research on the effects of human bioenergy on matter and functioning of the physical brain, obtained by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

• PLACE: Fellowship Hall, Unitarian Universalist Church, 505 Charleston Rd., Palo Alto
COST to Attend:
Paid FMBR members: $80.00.
Non-FMBR members: $90.00.

Creating the Future

Part 1, Judy Kitt and Bill Gough

One of the reasons I have been so drawn to the work of Barbara Marx Hubbard is that she was the first person I ever heard (back in the 1980's) who was speaking of a positive future for humanity and the Earth.  Up until then it seemed that, in many peoples' minds, we were headed inexorably toward an apocalypse, which would be followed by a post-apocalyptic dystopian world in which people fought for food and water, were defenseless against marauding invaders and were essentially hopeless.

Certainly, this is the world view portrayed in many popular movies and novels still today.  And, it seems that for many, there doesn't seem to be much we can do about it.  So, when I first heard Barbara speak, it was exciting to hear this elderly woman say that not only is humanity evolving, it had the power to choose in which direction we wanted to evolve.  That is, that we could steer a course toward a positive future that works for everyone, (not just the few) and could consciously choose to evolve toward a higher vision of ourselves, personally and as a global community.  Now, of course, that is a huge undertaking.  But it is a worthy one--one which many have chosen to pursue, with the vision of an awakened humanity as its guiding principal.

Bill writes:

Human-beings are unique because we can create 'fiction' in our minds. Science fiction may be the most effective way to get the message out to the mass consciousness of humanity. Perhaps our multi-dimensional-self links to a glimpse of a potential future.  Fiction has the power of becoming reality. As a young boy in the 1930s and 40s, I got pleasure from reading science fiction. I enjoyed the books of Jules Verne that were written in the 1800s. Verne wrote about travel to the moon, beneath the sea, around our planet, and even to the center of the earth. I also enjoyed comic books whose characters traveled to distant planets in space ships, and used weapons like today's laser guns and atomic bombs.

Future Is Ours

These and other fictions, such as Dick Tracy's wrist watch with its two-way voice communication, all became realities in my lifetime.

How is it that such fiction created by the minds of human-beings so often becomes physical reality? What is the 'magic' behind this process? We are human-beings. Our being aspect implies a connection to something more encompassing than the physical. This Mind-Being connection is one element of the inherent duality that exists in Nature. We all experience the divide between head and heart, reason and intuition, and separateness and oneness. Strengthening the Mind-Being connection can become a personal journey. It also represents a change that needs to occur in society -- such a change will permit us to consciously tap into the infinite possibilities available within the Oneness. The challenge is to create a "fiction" of a positive vision that can manifest out of the "Oneness." We have the ability to actually contribute to the creation of a future physical reality we would wish to experience.  Maybe my short musings here will be helpful to get you to think about a vision of the future that you would love to experience."

We would welcome your comments and thoughts."

Part II, Judy Kitt

Above, Bill and I wrote about the possibility of using science fiction stories to present an emotionally engaging vision for a positive future for the planet, instead of the post-apocalyptic visions we see in so many motion pictures these days. Our subsequent conversations led us to observations about many recent scientific breakthroughs and how often we find that what we thought was fixed turns out not to be so. Boundary conditions that once were considered absolute are, more and more, being revealed to be less rigid than previously thought.

Take, for example, the explosion of data in the field of brain science. Remember the days when we believed that neurons could not heal when injured or that the brain stopped developing once you reached adulthood? Those days are long gone as neuroscience focuses on gaining a deeper understanding of plasticity, the brain's remarkable capacity to modify its own structure and function. And, of course, we are seeing this phenomenon in many other disciplines, in the fields of physical sciences, biomedical technology, chemistry, psychology and even economics. The rules appear to be changing, which opens up the field of possibilities. Not all of those possibilities will end up being positive, but we would like to focus on envisioning positive possibilities.

Pete Seeger on optimism

Knowing the creativity, intellect and heart of our membership and those whose interests draw them to FMBR, we would like to turn to you and ask for your vision of a positive future. What would you create if the boundaries of physical science were more pliant than you had previously thought? If you could create the future, what would you like to see? And how do you see us getting there?

The Science of BioGeometry

Jerry Gin, Ph.D.

In a world where we are continuously impacted by the environment, often in negative ways, it would be ideal to be able to neutralize those negative energies to reduce their effects on us.   One such source is harmful radiation from electromagnetic fields (EMF) all around us.  Then there are the toxins in the air and water, pesticides and antibiotics in foods, and the microbes in the air and the environment. All of the negative components of the environment have the potential to cause a wide spectrum of diseases.  BioGeometry is a science, which offers a possible solution.

BioGeometry combines Pythagorean harmonics, history of architecture, Ancient Egyptian temple science, and German and French Physical Radiesthesia to form a modern "Physics of Quality" as the basis of the science.  Dr. Ibrahim Karim, founder of BioGeometry, built upon this foundation and found the energies, which contribute to health in biological beings. He defines the BioGeometry as "the science of establishing harmony between biological fields and their environment, through the use of a design language of form, color, motion and sound." We are all receptors of the "quality of physics" from an energetic perspective -- we see electromagnetic radiation in the range of 400 to 700 nanometers and call this color; we hear compression of air waves and call this sound, we feel with our skin via sensors that transmit signals to our brain; the same can be said of all of our primary senses. Sound and color and all energies are related through resonance. Dr. Karim discovered that higher harmonics of 3 energy qualities, which he called BG3, were beneficial to health of humans, animals and plants.  He discovered ways to create these energies and studied the beneficial effects of the energies on diseases such as hepatitis C, on reversing EMF sensitivity, growing plants without pesticides, raising chickens without use of antibiotics, and lowering leucocytes in cows' milk.  This article describes the principles of BioGeometry and gives examples of the studies that have been conducted which demonstrate the utility of BioGeometry.

Dr. Karl Pribram: A Remembrance 

By Bill Gough

Karl Pribram received his M.D. degree in 1941 and became one of the first 300 board-certified neurosurgeons in the world. Between 1958 and 1989 he pioneered the field of neuropsychology at Stanford University. His holonomic theory of memory and perception has been addressed in his own books and in a number of popular books including Michael Talbot's The Holographic Universe and Lynne Taggart's The Field.

Karl participated in many FMBR activities and he and I both served on the HeartMath Science Advisory Committee together. I remember Karl's very sharp mind, his feistiness, and his sense of humor. At a particular FMBR science workjng session he repeatedly challenged the quantum physicist, Dr. Henry Stapp with , " What good is quantum physics? It can't tell you anything about the brain and mind!" Henry has since written several books about the mind and quantum physics. Karl would often joke about the dangers  of research and, to illustrate his point, he would hold up his hand, which had anfinger missing. One of the monkeys in his experiments didn't approve  of his approach and suddenly bit his finger off.

Dr. Karl Pribram died on Jan. 19, 2015 at the age of 95. A memorial service and tribute to Karl will take place in Oct. 2015 in Washington , D.C.

We miss you, Karl!
