The power of pH

The pH of a substance, as you probably remember, measures the acidity or basicity of a solution.

Clean water —is usually 7 or neutral, if it is pure — whereas polluted water often a pH that is either more acidic or more alkaline.

Water grows polluted from a number of sources — pathogens, like bacteria or parasites, organic and inorganic chemicals, from detergents to pesticides and industrial waste, and also physical changes, such as a change in temperature from industrial sources.

These changes can also alter the pH of water – either making it too alkali or too acidic. Natural ‘healthy’ rainwater is supposed to have a neutral pH of 7 and most rainwater now is between 5 and 6.

Industrial plants emit acidifying gases such as sulphuric oxides and carbon monoxide, which can change the pH of the rain water to 4 or below. This is why rain with this artificially lowered pH is often referred to as ‘acid rain’.

Certain polluting organisms such as algae, on the other hand, can make the water too alkaline.

So an obvious target, when trying to clean up polluted water, is to change pH. We already have evidence that pH is very responsive to intention. Dr. Melinda Connor, director of the Karen Connor Optimal Healing Research program and a scientist who has worked with Dr. Schwartz at the Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health at the University of Arizona, has designed pH experiments to test the ability of experienced healers to change pH.

When I spent time with her at the ISSSEEM conference last June she told me that she has created a particular protocol she asks highly experienced healers to use that can lower pH by several units — more or less permanently.

So I wondered: can ‘ordinary’ intenders make this happen too?

We have some evidence that pH is highly responsive to intention from the work of former Stanford University physicist William Tiller. Tiller has conducted what are some of the most extraordinary studies about the power of intention.

Using a simple black box, the size of a remote control, with an electrically erasable, programmable, read-only memory (EEPROM) component, he has ‘charged’ these devices with human intention and then used them to affect a variety of chemical processes. His experiment rests on the unthinkable assumptions that thoughts can be imprisoned in a bit of electronic memory and later ‘released’ to affect the physical world.

In the late nineties, Tiller gathered together experienced meditators, had them all enter a deep meditative state, and asked them to embed the equipment with a highly specific intention to affect a particular target.

Each time Tiller chose experimental targets that could show a genuine, measurable change, including water pH.

He chose to see if intention can change the pH of water because water pH remains fairly static and tiny changes of one-hundredth or even one-thousandth of a unit on the pH scale can be measured; a change of a full unit or more on the pH scale would represent an enormous shift that was unlikely to be the result of an incorrect measurement.

In both instances, his meditators imprinted intentions into the black boxes to change the pH of water both up and down by a full pH unit.

Shipped to another lab
Tiller would then wrapped the imprinted black box, or the ‘Intention-Imprinted Electronic Device’, in aluminium foil and placed it in another Faraday cage until ready for shipping. On separate days he shipped each box via FedEx to the Minnesota laboratory, some 1500 miles away.

Tiller also prepared an identical control box that had not been ‘imprinted’ with intention by wrapping it in aluminium foil and placing it in an electrically grounded Faraday cage, in order to screen out electromagnetic frequencies of all magnitudes.

He had been careful to blind the experiment so that his lab technicians would not know which device contained the intention and which the control when the two devices arrived.

In the water experiments, the meditators were successful; their intentions managed to change the pH up and down by one unit.

Conditioned space
After three months, Tiller noticed that the results of his studies began to improve; the more he repeated the experiment, the stronger and quicker the effects.

He then did some investigations to try to find if there were any aspects of the laboratory that might be responsible.

After discovering that the air temperature appeared to be going up and down according to a regular rhythm or oscillation, dipping and climbing at regular intervals, Tiller then measured the pH of water in the lab and measured its capacity to conduct electricity.

He observed the same phenomenon as he had with the temperature: periodic oscillations of at least one-quarter of a unit on the pH scale, and regular dips and peaks in the water’s ability to conduct electricity.

Tiller was especially intrigued by the changes in pH. The acid/alkaline balance in any substance is highly sensitive to change; if the pH of a person’s blood shifts up or down by just a half a pH unit, it means that they are dying or already dead.

Energetic harmony
A pattern was developing: as the temperature of the air rose, the pH fell, and vice versa, in near perfect harmonic rhythm. The water’s electrical conductivity showed a similar harmonic cycle. Somehow his lab was beginning to manifest different material properties, almost as if it were a specially charged environment.
The effects also continually increased. No matter which experiment he carried out, the longer the imprinted devices were in the room, the larger the rhythmic fluctuations of the temperature and pH.

These fluctuations remained unaffected by the opening of doors or windows, the operation of air conditioners or heaters, and even the presence or movement of humans or objects around their immediate vicinity. When he compared graphs of air and water temperature readings, they again mapped in perfect harmony.

Every corner of the room that was measured registered the same result. Each aspect of the physical space appeared to be in some sort of rhythmic, energetic harmony.

Human intention captured in Tiller’s little black boxes were somehow ‘conditioning’ the spaces where the experiments were carried out.

After the imprinted boxes had been turned on for a while, the effect became relatively ‘permanent’; the target, whether water pH, ALP or fruit flies, would continue to be affected even if the device was not in the lab.

Although this influence decayed very slowly over time, Tiller’s laboratories appeared to have undergone some long-term thermodynamic transformation. The energy from intention appeared to ‘charge’ the environment and create a domino effect of order.

The constant replaying of ordered thoughts seemed to be changing the physical reality of the room, and making the quantum virtual particles of empty space more ‘ordered’. And then, like a domino effect, the ‘order’ of the space appeared to assist the outcome of the experiment. Carrying out the intentions in one particular space appeared to enhance their effects over time.

Our Water into Wine experiment
So affecting pH of water can have many extraordinary implications. On January 30, we’re going to attempt to make water more acidic, but in future, we’ll try the reverse.

Let’s all see if we can use our thoughts to bring the water back to basics.

So to join us Saturday, January 30, 2010, at 5 pm GMT (12 noon Eastern Standard time). And don’t forget to register:
