Sympathetic Resonance Technology
(SRT): A Subtle Energy Technology for Noise Reduction in
Physical and Psychophysical Systems
Co-Founder, International Society for the Study
of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine
Scientists and engineers have been concerned with
signal and noise since the early days of radio and telephone
communications. Noise in electronic systems has come under intense
scrutiny in recent times, especially since the amount of electronic
information we process and transfer is enormous.
Signal and noise are also important in biological
systems. In communications within the body itself, in maintaining
health and avoiding disease, signals are vital. If inappropriate
signals are processed in the body, this may result in a disease.
Further, biophysicists trying to understand life and death from a
fundamental perspective, have formulated that 'signals' and their
processing are compatible with life while noise and its proliferation
constitutes death itself.
Any organized system requires transmission and
interpretation of specific signals. When signals breakdown, and when
noise overtakes the signals, then chaos results and disorder prevails.
If it is transitory, health could be restored. If it is permanent, then
death might results. In fact, one might posit that life is a constant
struggle to maintain a certain amount of signal in spite of ongoing
Thus, we see in physics and in biophysics — in the
world around us and the one within us — that reduction and possible
elimination of noise is an important task. We define a parameter called
Signal-to-Noise ratio or simply S/N which should be larger than 1. In
other words, signal should always be larger than the noise. In most
physical systems, we operate in a way to maintain this condition. If
S/N is less than 1 (signal smaller than noise), we are running into
trouble. Under these conditions, a physical system will become useless,
and a psychophysical system will become sick. Thus, reducing noise and
preserving the integrity of a signal are necessary in many areas of
Let us review briefly the origin of noise and
methods available for noise reduction in electronic systems.
NOISE REDUCTION SCHEMES
Noise is a fundamental property of all physical
systems that operate at finite temperatures. Even the best electronic
chips, manufactured under the most stringent conditions exhibit noise.
This is due to the fact that in the atomic and molecular make up, ever
so small imperfections make the electronic flow random, and hence the
material becomes noisy.
Now there is a simple way, at least in theory, to
reduce and ultimately eliminate noise. This is by reducing the
temperature at which a device operates. As the temperature is reduced,
the random motion of electrons in the device reduces; the noise
contribution due to this effect also reduces. It is known that noise
can be eliminated entirely when a device operates at absolute zero
temperature. This temperature corresponds to — 273 degrees Celsius
(about — 460 F). NASA has employed this principle to reduce noise and
receive meaningful messages from probes that have gone past the solar
Thus, a simple method to improve S/N in electronic
and perhaps physiological systems is to reduce temperature at which
they operate. However, this is not practical, nor is it always
possible. All life as we know it comes to a stand still at very low
temperatures. No activity could take place in physical systems as well;
the entire environment would become still and silent. In this silence,
even signals do not exist.
Therefore, radical temperature reduction is not a
practical method for reducing noise. Other electronic methods are
available in technology to extract signals, which have levels much
smaller than noise. However, all these require the power of a
supercomputer, complex algorithms and advanced signal processing
If a simple, practical method could be
implemented for noise reduction, it will benefit immensely both our
technology and medical sciences. A special method of noise reduction
using very minute subtle energy fields is presented in what follows.
First, let us briefly understand what subtle energy fields are and then
describe a device that seems to manipulate these energies in reducing
WHAT ARE SUBTLE ENERGY FIELDS?
The term Subtle Energy (SE) is of recent origin.
SE could mean a physical energy, such as electromagnetic or acoustic,
that is of such low intensity we have no means of measuring it
presently. The sensors we have designed in the laboratories are not
sensitive enough to directly discern these fields. In this definition
of SE, we are dealing with a physical field which is of very low
Several scientists in the United States (Tiller,
Bearden, Rein, Putoff, Green, and Srinivasan) have studied SE and its
effects. Though each has developed his own nuanced theory of SE, in
general they all tend to concur that SE phenomena is related to a type
of unified energy, and is not just a physical field of very low
Contemporary quantum physics has mathematically
described and predicted the presence of a unified energy which
underlies conventional transverse electromagnetic (EM) vectors. The
concept of a subtle energy underlying EM fields was first introduced by
Bohm and Aharonov in describing quantum potentials as an implicate
order "embedded in" our normal 3-D space. It has recently been proposed
that an additional implicate order is embedded within the quantum
This higher-dimensional space is composed of an
energy, which has been called time-reversed waves, non-Hertzian waves,
longitudinal waves, scalar waves, or zero-point energy.
The classical EM fields have been under
investigation since the laws of Maxwell were established more than 150
years ago in England. We know all about the physical fields; we can
generate, manipulate and use them for purposes such as long distance
communication, computer applications and measurement techniques that
are proliferating all around us. However, our knowledge regarding SE
fields is expanding slowly. We present below a view of SE field
generation based on some of the latest theories in quantum physics.
PHYSICS OF SUBTLE ENERGY FIELDS - ZPE
Subtle Energy fields might be a fundamental
manifestation of energy that underlies classical energy systems. We
need to invoke current theories in physics to postulate possible
scenario for SE production. It is known that what we thought of as
vacuum or empty space is not really so. Quantum theory predicts this
vacuum is really a container of enormous amounts of energy. Particles
seem to appear and disappear out of this vacuum. Such processes are
presently called Zero Point Fluctuations (ZPF), providing an infinite
energetic background for the physical world.
The manifestation of elementary particles from
this vacuum and their disappearance proceeds continuously and is
postulated as the basis for the formation of the universe as we know
it. At the level of ZPF, Zero Point Energy (ZPE) is converted into
matter and matter falls back into this ocean of ZPE. If we can 'mine'
even a small part of this vast energy, we can theoretically supply the
energy requirement of the world for a fraction of the cost of
conventional energy sources. Renowned scientists, several of whom seem
close to extracting this energy, are making attempts at this.
Now, one might ask, how is this ZPE connected with
SE? It is likely that as particles are formed from vacuum (which as we
said, is a concept emerging from quantum physics) there are associated
radiations. As particles emerge and disappear, these radiations also
appear and disappear. It is similar to when ripples are formed as
stones are thrown into still water. As each stone disappears in water,
it produces waves at the surface of water. Though there is no
mathematical proof for production of SE through this method, it is
likely such a mechanism exists in the vacuum state. Quantum mechanics
postulates elementary particles do have specific energy states, which
have certain finger print radiation patterns. Hence the above model for
subtle energy radiations is well within the possibilities of theories
in modern physics.
While the production and radiation of SE fields
could possibly be within the realm of physics, the design and use of SE
field devices most likely require novel engineering constructs. It is
likely these SE fields can be focused and down-converted through
special energy-information transduction techniques which couple the
multi-dimensional SE fields to three-dimensional force fields.
It is likely, then, if SE fields are focused,
they can be brought out from the Zero Point Energy itself. As SE fields
emerge out of ZPE, they may be beyond physicality (and hence not
possible to measure); however, after transduction, they seem to
manifest as quasi-physical energies. Or they directly influence the
behavior of classical field phenomena. After such a change in energy
format, SE fields become 'useful' and take part in energy interactions
with physical fields such as electromagnetic and acoustic.
SUBTLE ENERGY DEVICE DYNAMICS - PROF. TILLER THEORY
While the above thoughts could very well be mere
speculation which could face premature mortality as physics advance, we
need to ponder over these ideas with the backdrop of a particular
instrument which seems to fall within the category of SE field
generation and its interaction with the physical world, especially with
electromagnetic and bioelectromagnetic phenomena.
There are a set of SE instruments devised by
Clarus Transphase, L.L.C. and its affiliate company Clarus Products
International, L.L.C. These devices are called Sympathetic Resonators
(SR) and use Clarus's proprietary Sympathetic Resonance Technology
(SRT). A brief report is presented regarding these devices which have
undergone many laboratory trials and seem to produce consistent and
measurable changes in both physical and psychophysical systems.
The Clarus devices consist of a family of hardware
platforms. Each hardware platform has certain formats imprinted in the
electronic or non-electronic circuitry such that transduction and
coupling of SE fields to physical phenomena is achieved. These formats
are delivered via the proprietary "Sympathetic Resonance Technology"
(SRT) developed by Clarus. Clarus has developed the capability to
generate an almost infinite number of variations of subtle energy
fields using SRT. It has been found that different types of SE fields
are suited for specific applications. Testing has also shown that the
SE field intensity falls off as Inverse Square of distance; in other
words, they have a radius of action beyond which their efficacy
Because the SE fields cannot be measured directly,
the effects of the Clarus Sympathetic Resonators on physical and
psychophysical phenomena are being tested. Once the SE field is
generated and coupled to a physical field, or application, its effects
are then studied.
An overview of the theories proposed by Prof.
William Tiller of Stanford University (former Chairman of the Materials
Science Department and Guggenheim Fellow), who has worked extensively
with Clarus, provides a more detailed explanation of the possible
mechanism of causation.
Prof. Tiller has proposed that magnetic vector
potentials are the means by which energy exchanges occur between subtle
energy fields and the physical world of electromagnetics. It is likely
that the energy generated through magnetic vector potentials from the
fundamental ZPF is 'pure', and can influence fields and matter around
it through resonance effects.
Resonance occurs when two objects have frequencies
of oscillations that are close to each other. When two such systems are
in proximity, then they will resonate at the frequency dictated by the
stronger of the two oscillations. For example, when a string in a
guitar is plucked, any string, which is at a nearby resonance, will
start oscillating at the driven frequency.
Similarly, the strong oscillations at the
fundamental ZPE level will couple with other material oscillations and
organize them to its proper frequency. Further, the ZPE generated field
is considered coherent. In other words, a pure noise-free field is
radiated from the Clarus SE transducer. This would serve to bring
electromagnetic phenomena to a new coherent order with less fundamental
noise within the vicinity of the Clarus SRT devices.
Thus, resonance and coherence are two important
aspects of SE fields. The physical field that emanates from the SE
device is highly coherent and induces resonance in material objects as
well as electromagnetic force fields around it. The property of
coherence is important in many systems, including the psychophysical.
For example, information is transmitted across junctions in the human
nervous system because of coherence. Even at the gross level,
activities such as speech, movement of limbs and other functions are
possible because of a coherent behavior of many subsystems. We can see
the effects of loss of coherence in diseases such as Parkinson's and
Tiller summarizes the four ways subtle energy and
thus a Clarus SRT device can relate to and influence classical
- Subtle energy may directly influence the
ordering of fundamental magnetic properties, which would regulate the
fundamental magnetic behavior of all electromagnetic fields in the
range of the subtle energy device.
- Subtle energy may be related to magnetic
vectors, such that the vectors serve as the media whereby the
properties of subtle energy are able to impact electromagnetic
- Subtle energy may be the rarefied form of
magnetic vectors, or one and the same phenomena.
- Other properties of subtle energy may exist
that impact sub-atomic particle phenomena through quantum field
interactions, and thus they would indirectly influence forces such as
If the magnetic vector were used as a medium or
vehicle to store and transport and disseminate this energy, it would
carry the new magnetic value to the electromagnetic phenomena in the
environment, most likely through the mechanism of resonance. The same
result would occur if the magnetic vectors were physical attributes of
non-physical subtle energies, as if they were the flip side of the same
Because electromagnetic radiation is composed of
both an electric component and a magnetic component, the electric
component will be always be directly affected by magnetic shifts. This
is based on the principles of magnetics, where magnetic fields
influence charged particles in motion such as photons, the carriers of
Thus, if a SE device can influence electromagnetic
phenomena, it would be theoretically expected to influence a wide
variety of phenomena spanning physical, chemical, biological, and
At the basic level of physics and chemistry, the
following would be expected to occur in a Clarus SRT Subtle Energy
- Electron flows become more efficient
- Electromagnetic interactions become more
- Molecular bondings become more efficient
Let us briefly review the experiments conducted
with various Clarus SRT devices and interpret the results within the
framework of the models proposed above.
1. Reduction of Noise in Lasers
Coherence is an important concept in the quantum
oscillations in many devices such a lasers. Laser is an acronym that
stands for Light Amplification through Stimulated Emission of
Radiation. In a laser, a coherent light is produced in a device
(consisting of special gas or a crystal) whose properties are very
different in comparison to light from a household electric lamp. A
phenomenon that affects the performance of lasers is known as 'jitter'.
This jitter occurs due to a lack of coherence at the subatomic level.
Thus jitter is quantum noise that limits the use of lasers in many
applications. If jitter could be reduced, more precise measurements,
medical applications, and optical information and storage retrieval
applications are possible using lasers. In the experiments conducted by
Clarus, it is found that laser jitter is indeed reduced due to exposure
to SE fields. It is postulated this is possible due to coherent
ordering of resonant fields of the SE device. Since the Clarus SRT
device produces electromagnetic radiation from the ZPF directly, it
achieves coherence at quantum level, which is thought to be responsible
for noise reduction in lasers, leading to greater stability in these
2. Increase in Battery Life
The life of small batteries is limited due to
material imperfections and manufacturing tolerances. Again, if we can
reduce material imperfections at subatomic level, it is likely we can
increase battery life through greater efficiencies in the chemical
reactions. In experiments conducted with Clarus SRT devices, button
cell batteries of different chemistries are exposed to the SE fields
and are then shipped to a third party testing laboratory. When the
SRT-exposed button cell batteries are tested against the control group,
their life is found to be considerably extended. For example, a battery
whose life was about 5 hours of continuous operation was useful for up
to 10 hours after exposure to the Clarus SE fields. There was one type
of battery whose life increased by up to 2000%.
3. Sound and Picture Perception in Audiovisual
In audio and TV systems, noise is a major
contributor in reducing the quality of transmission. Use of a special
Clarus SRT device has improved significantly the quality of audiovisual
transmissions. As discussed earlier, reduction of this type of noise is
achieved either by reducing the temperature of the device or by
ordering the quantum processes in the generator, making the output more
coherent. An increased coherence is the same as reduced noise. With
Clarus, the audio video electronics are probably improved, and the
acoustic waveforms in the room are most likely more properly aligned to
one another, which improves the clarity and purity of sound.
Clarus is able to achieve these results even by
using off-the-shelf compact discs that have been exposed to master
Clarus field. Clarus is also experimenting with the direct application
of SRT to compact discs and DVDs.
4. Experiments Using Restriction Enzymes
Clarus conducted experiments to test for the
subtle energy effects on restriction enzymes used in molecular biology
laboratories. The assay utilized a restriction enzyme called Sma-1,
which recognizes a specific nucleotide sequence within a dsDNA
sequence. By incubating this enzyme with a plasmid with a unique Sma-1
restriction site, one is able to compare a control reaction with a
similar reaction subjected to the Clarus subtle energy fields. Compared
to the control unit, the Clarus SE fields induce a marked increase in
the reaction product averaging 33%. This is a substantial increase in
the processivity of this class of enzymes.
5. Experiments in the Biological and
Biological experiments were conducted by Clarus to
observe cellular behaviors in a SE field. The term psychophysical is
used to denote the mind-body complex that make up all life forms.
Experiments conducted with a Clarus SRT device in this arena are
limited to humans.
In the biological experiments, the cellular system
Trypanosoma cruzi Metacyclogenesis Assay was chosen. There are many
quantitative end points available for this assay and hence its study
was undertaken. These studies are carried out at biology department of
the University of California, Irvine. Well-controlled and double blind
protocols are used to ensure the effects observed are entirely due to
the Clarus device and not due to any external biases. The results point
out clearly that the Clarus device inhibited metacyclogenesis, which
indicates reduced physiological stress levels. According to
researchers, a reduction of 5 per cent stress levels would be
considered significant; the Clarus device reduced the levels by up to
36 per cent.
Since the cellular system is simple to study and
since the results are robust, it is fair to conclude the efficacy of
Clarus SRT for reducing stress is indeed high.
As mentioned earlier, stress is noise introduced
into the cells. If noise swamps out the signal, the cell would die.
Clarus SRT is able to reduce stress perhaps through maintaining the
fundamental oscillation frequencies of the biological system.
This is possible through resonance coupling
discussed earlier. When the coupling between the fundamental ZPF
generated frequency and the biological system is strong, it is likely
any external noise frequencies are not able to destabilize the cells.
This experiment, conducted by a major university,
is an elegant one; it also proves without ambiguity the efficacy of a
Clarus SRT device in reducing stress in cell cultures.
Experiments employing the mind-body complex were
also conducted. The first experiment in this category is the use of a
Clarus SRT device in reducing muscle tension in subjects in front of a
computer monitor and a television. Measuring the electrical activity of
hand muscle tested the muscle tension. As we know, the peripheral
muscles of the body tense when we are under stress, they tend to relax
as we relax. The tension of the muscles can easily be measured using
methods from physiotherapy and rehabilitation. It was noted in these
experiments, the Clarus SRT device reduced tension from the computer
monitor by 36 per cent and from the television by 17 per cent. Again,
the interpretation of these results is based on the maintenance of
eigenfrequenz (the innate resonance frequency) of the organism with the
help of the Clarus SRT device.
A second experiment conducted is to correlate
improvements in acupuncture energy to the wearing of the Clarus QLink with SRT. Initially, a group of
twelve patients were tested for acupuncture imbalance through AK
(Applied Kinesiology). This is an accepted though subjective procedure
whereby a muscle is tested for strength while the corresponding
meridian is stimulated. Once the acupuncture imbalance is detected, the
patients were recommended to wear the pendant over the heart area and
during daytime only over a period ranging from three to six months. Ten
out of 12 patients seemed to recover from the imbalance initially
noted. Two had imbalances other than the one initially observed, it is
likely that they had other problems either initially or acquired later.
It is thus likely that the pendant removes acupuncture imbalances in
subjects thus enhancing the healing process. Further, wearing the
pendant seems to improve emotional balance, aid in personal growth, and
facilitate a positive attitude. These reports are generated by patients
who were wearing the pendant and though subjective, are of importance
in problems related to personal growth.
Many other reports have been received by persons
working in a high electromagnetic field (EMF) environments such as in
front of computer terminals, using cellular phones and in general
living in areas where the EMF could be above recommended safety values.
In many cases, we are unaware of the fields since they are well below
perception threshold for our sensory system.
EMF results in undefined stress in the body,
manifesting as low energy, chronic fatigue, feeling of helplessness,
depression and occasional intense emotional imbalances. In such cases
where EMF is present, wearing the pendant seems to ward off stress
symptoms. Testimonials regarding such positive effects are consistent
from many users, and at least a dozen independent tests conducted by
highly qualified Applied Kinesiology professionals confirm these
In line of earlier discussed model of resonance
and coherence, it is likely that the Clarus SRT devices strengthen and
maintain the natural frequencies of the bioenergy system through
resonance. By providing stable and coherent bioenergy compatible
frequencies, Clarus makes sure external noise does not destabilize the
inherent frequencies of the bioenergy system. These inherent natural
frequencies are called 'eigenfrequenz' (in this document, eigen meaning
'its own' in German) after similar nomenclature in physics. Thus,
maintaining eigenfrequenz is important and if Clarus indeed achieves
this, as it seems to, this is an important contribution to bioenergetic
The Clarus SRT devices are an interesting category
of Subtle Energy devices, which seem to down-convert Zero Point Energy
and Zero Point Fluctuations of the vacuum energy into measurable
physical energy effects. Several models for this conversion process are
proposed in this document. Potential commercial and consumer
applications range from reducing noise and increasing stability in
physical systems to providing consistent and natural resonant
frequencies to psychophysical systems. Reducing and ultimately
eliminating noise is a major concern in electronic and biological
If Clarus SE fields reduce noise, especially at a
fundamental level of the atomic or quantum processes, then we have for
the first time, a room temperature device that has immense potentials
in the technological arena. The experiments related to increased
battery life and improved laser performance indicate just that
Reducing noise is the ultimate frontier in biology
as well. The traditional eastern concepts of health have emphasized the
need for the physical body along with subtle bodies to maintain a
dynamic equilibrium in the flux of human activity and environment.
Subtle energies from the universe course into the
human body through the bioenergy system, and after conversion into
physical forces, aid the physical body in maintaining health. If this
picture of eastern medicine is even partially true, then a device,
which captures this SE, could perhaps help in health maintenance. The
Clarus SRT devices have the elements of mechanism necessary for
transduction of SE.
Through resonant and coherent fields, Clarus SRT
provides a reference for the body to tune into; any external (or
internal, for that matter) radiation that tends to move the body to a
different frequency is counteracted. A frequency other than
eigenfrequenz is noise. Thus Clarus SRT devices seem to shield the
external noise, such as man-made electromagnetic fields (EMF), and
prevent it from disrupting the system.
Thus, if Clarus SRT fields are resonating with the
most fundamental frequencies in the body, perhaps they can be useful in
many diverse applications in prevention, therapy and rehabilitation.
Hopefully the wide variety of Clarus SRT field
applications will be validated and made commercially available in the
not too distant future.
