Welcome to this week’s Science and Spirituality where, in the conclusion of a three-part series, we continue to highlight the very intriguing work of biophysicist, inventor, and pioneer of the innovative scientific field called electrophotonics, Dr. Konstantin Korotkov who is based in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Dr. Korotkov is also the author and co-author of several books, including “Measuring Energy Fields: State of the Science,” “Science, Aura and Consciousness: New Stage of Scientific Understanding” and “Light after Life.”

The Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) technique invented by Dr. Korotkov allows for the real-time study of energy fields, or auras, emanating from humans and objects.

One of the instruments to measure energy are bioelectrography instruments. It was in 1777 when a German physicist found that in electrical fields, you can see light coming from some subjects. It is all related to electricity and photons. Our team was able to transform this to a new stage. So it is transformation from photography to digital computer processing, and digital analysis.

Dr. Korotkov’s research on the unseen world of energy fields and consciousness is yet another example of science bringing us a closer understanding of our true, divine nature and innate creative powers.

The connection with the universal power, the informational field, is a very complicated topic. We were able to measure a lot of people who have this access, this connection. It was done in special experiments. A very special connection comes in altered states of consciousness. At some moments, if you are deeply in a meditative state or if you can transform to this altered state of consciousness, you may have this connection. And it’s not only for saints, it’s the same for artists, for musicians, for poets, for scientists, for engineers, businessmen, and high-management people. It’s the main process of inspiration and creativity. Einstein wrote a lot about spiritual topics, about connections to God. Newton was a very spiritual person. Mendeleev got his vision of the Mendeleev (periodic) table (of the elements) in his dream. So it is very typical for a lot of scientists, creators, musicians, poets; it is the way of creativity.

Just as all human beings and animals emanate energy fields, so do plants and even inanimate objects like water. Since time immemorial, spiritual teachers have spoken of a universal energy that permeates all of creation.

The energy field, this is a quantum property of nature. So, any subject has an energy field. In quantum properties and in the quantum level, we are the same. We are just the same as stones, the same as minerals. That’s why we are measuring energy from water, and it is very interesting line of study. We are measuring different subjects in nature, and we are measuring the environment, with special sensors.

Truly, as science delves more deeply into the unknown through such experiments, we’re re-discovering that we’re not limited by the boundaries of the material world.

The main message that I got from our measurements in 15 years is that we have our consciousness power, our mind power, and with this power we can recreate our life. We can strongly influence our energy field and we can really change our life. Next, is our environment that we live in – water, air, food, and environmental station. And next is the level of intercommunication with other people. We have special sensors that allow us to take measurements of the energy of the environment.

And I’ve been traveling in different parts of the world, South America, Southeast Asia, Russia, Siberia, Africa, and everywhere we were looking for places of high energy. It was always the places of worship. We’ve been measuring in churches, in monasteries, in temples, in different countries, in different regions. And everywhere we found that those are places of very high energy.

A lot of these places have been used as healing places. People coming there have increased energy, and they can be cured of different problems, because this place uses the energy of the Earth. And ancient people were able to feel this energy, and they were selecting special places. With our instrument, we can measure this. Without any doubts, our Earth has its own energy field. Earth is communicating with the environment, with space, with the cosmos.

Dr. Korotkov has also investigated the power of people across the globe uniting in thought, prayer or meditation to achieve a common, constructive purpose.

If you have positive attention, if you have a positive attitude to life, to the environment, to other people, then you make life around yourself much more positive. You really can change the environment. As we are collective beings, as we have our collective information field, together we can do a lot.

Development of spirituality is a collective process. If we include more and more people in this collective, spiritual process, it would change the consciousness of humankind. People would come together, and meditate and pray for peace, and I believe that this is how spirituality may be developed. We did many experiments of this kind, so it's possible to measure collective meditation, and we did these experiments in different countries. We put the sensor in the room where people are meditating, and we immediately see the effect. When we have collective consciousness, we have more and more strong influence on the world. And of course it’s important to have a positive direction, then positive collective consciousness would tremendously influence our environment.

In the quest to modernize and improve our technological status, humanity unfortunately has become disconnected from the very source that has sustained our lives and nurtured us. As Earth citizens, we have regretfully neglected our duty to be good stewards of the environment.

It’s only the beginning of the process of the influence of humankind on the Earth. We did a lot of harm to the Earth. In the ocean, you can find big areas that are contaminated with garbage. We need to change the attitude of humankind to the environment, and then it will be possible for the Earth to restore and embrace humankind as a part of nature.

Organic vegetables, fruits, grains, beans, seeds and nuts are grown without the use of harmful chemicals, and are thus the most environmentally-friendly foods for enhancing the well-being of both humans and our planet. Cultivation of vegan organic crops reduces the damaging carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by absorbing this greenhouse gas in the soil.

Different types of food, it’s absolutely different energy; an organic apple and an apple grown chemically – absolutely different energy. An organic plant and a chemically grown plant – tremendous difference. So, now we live in a dangerous world. We have so many chemicals around ourselves that it poisons whole generations. Those chemicals, they create an epigenetic transformation of humankind. And this is dangerous, this is very bad.

Now epigenetically, a new generation of babies has a lot of allergies. Why? Because of the contamination in food. It comes from parents eating chemical foods. We need to understand that we have passed this chemical century. The 20th century was the century of chemicals, and people were thinking that by transforming chemicals, we can create new medications, new plastic things, we can create new food, that will be great for humankind. It was found not to be true. We need to come back to nature.

We need to use the power of nature. It’s very interesting; in St. Petersburg, around summertime, they used to use a lot of chemicals in farming, in agriculture. And our forest was practically empty. No animals, no bees, no butterflies. Now they don’t use chemicals anymore. They transform into natural farming. And there are a lot of animals, more and more every year. This year we had many butterflies in our fields and our forests. We have a lot of foxes, rabbits, different activity in the forest. It means that after we stop this chemical contamination of nature, nature can recreate itself. And it’s not only for animals, it’s for ourselves as well. So we need to get this as a message, as a lesson.

Supreme Master Ching Hai frequently speaks about how a global shift to an organic plant-based diet is the best way to preserve our planet as in this excerpt from a November 2009 interview by Radio Fórmula QR 92.3 FM that is based in Cancún, Mexico and serves the state of Quintana Roo.

We need to rethink our lifestyle. We have to rethink the whole planet species and survival, not just for our enjoyment day to day or momentarily. We have to think very unselfishly as you have said. Yes, just to be vegan is very simple: that saves all the lives on the planet – saves the animals, saves the environment and saves the world for our children’s future.

From the betterment of human relations to creating peace among nations and restoring the environment, science now acknowledges what ancient spiritual traditions have long understood – that humankind has the power to steer the course and fate of our planet. Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, the implications of your studies on human consciousness and intentions are both meaningful and powerful. We appreciate the time taken from your busy schedule to speak to us about your admirable work that blends science and spirituality. May your fine research continue to inform the world on these important issues in the future.
