What We Do and Why

We are made of and surrounded daily by the matter, forces and energies that make up our bodies, environment and the world we live in. From the visible to the invisible, from the expansive universe to the tiniest particle, we live in vastly different yet interconnected worlds comprised of matter, forces and energies. We undertake this fundamental research to better understand the properties of these things that make up our living reality.

The current research work includes, but is not limited to:


Concepts and Definitions used on this Website:

Energy: Energy is a state of matter which can be communicated from one part of matter to another whether that matter be solid, liquid, or gaseous and can bring about change in that other part of matter such as an increase in heat (temperature), electrical charge, chemical state or composition, or physical cohesion, for instance.

Force: A force is a push or a pull. Forces are found in such phenomena as gravity, ferromagnetism, electromagnetism or the electroweak force, the nuclear strong force, for instance.

Matter: Matter is defined as the material from which observable objects are composed. Matter can be in various states such as solid, liquid, gaseous, or ionized. A definition of matter includes not only the physically observable objects but also the constituent parts making up those physically observable objects such as electrons, protons, neutrons, quarks, muons, gluons, and so forth.


Four fundamental interactions in nature: electromagnetism, strong interaction, weak interaction, gravitation



  1. Natural Science: a branch of science that deals with the physical world, e.g., physics, chemistry, geology, and biology; the branch of knowledge that deals with the study of the physical world.
  2. Physical Sciences: the sciences concerned with the study of inanimate natural objects, including physics, chemistry, astronomy, and related subjects; that study the nature and properties of energy and nonliving matter.
  3. Neuroscience: any or all of the sciences, such as neurochemistry and experimental psychology, which deal with the structure or function of the nervous system and brain. Medical definition of neuroscience: a branch (as neurophysiology) of science that deals with the anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, or molecular biology of nerves and nervous tissue and especially their relation to behavior and learning.

Properties of Nature:

Accumulation: to gather, amass, heap up.

Coagulation: change from liquid into a thickened mass; curdle, congeal, clot.

Cohesion: Physics: the molecular force between particles within a body or substance that acts to unite them. Cohesion describes particles that are the same and tend to stick together: water molecules, for example.

Division: separate into parts, or the process of being separated.

Fluxion: the action of flowing or changing; a function corresponding to the rate of change of a variable quantity.

Matter: material from which observable objects are made. Also considered energetic matter.

Station: stationary: standing still, a place, fixed, unchanging, not moving.

Plant Project 2007

This plant project was to explore the question: Do energy and thoughts have an effect on the growth of the plants? The purpose of this experiment was to learn how to send specific energy and thoughts to plants, and to see if there would be a noticeable result to the growth of the plants.

Over the course of ten weeks, daily treatments on the plants involved transmissions of energy and thoughts—positive, neutral and inharmonious—to the plants, as well as watering the plants with a solution with baking soda in the morning and a solution with valerian in the evening. The experiment involved keeping track of temperature, humidity, the light conditions and growth of the plants. The plants were measured at specific intervals to determine growth.

We feel that the results are not dramatic, but very suggestive. All plants that were given energy treatments grew better. The plant that was given inharmonious thoughts grew less than plants that were given love or treated with neutral energy. The following chart and picture are taken from the final written report and presentation. They give a pictorial and graphic display of the results of one person’s part of the experiment.
