Subtle Energy Technology for Noise Reduction in Physical and Psychophysical

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 human endeavor.
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
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 system.
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 techniques.
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 noise.
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 magnitude.
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 magnitude.
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 potentials.
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
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
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 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 spasticity.
Tiller summarizes the four ways subtle energy and thus a Clarus
SRT device can relate to and influence classical electromagnetic
- 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
- 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 phenomena.
- 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 magnetic phenomena.
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
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 electromagnetic
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 psychophysical systems.
At the basic level of physics and chemistry, the following would
be expected to occur in a Clarus SRT Subtle Energy field:
- Electron flows become more efficient
- Electromagnetic interactions become more efficient
- 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 systems.
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 Systems
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 Psychophysical Arena
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 health
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 systems.
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 possibility.
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
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
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
