The 26th Symposium on Life Information Science "Seeking a New World View Which Can Explain Wonderful Phenomena" II
Expectations for Holding the Hakone Camp 28-31st August, 2008 Hakone, Kanagawa, Japan

Abstract:
The International Society of Life Information Science (ISLIS) has sought scientific proofs of existence of wonderful phenomena and resolution of their principles, since the foundation of ISLIS in 1995. 26 symposia have been held and 26 issues of the Journal of International Society of Life Information Science (Journal of ISLIS), totaling more than 5,000 pages, have been published periodically, in these 13 years. The existence of many wonderful phenomena has been proved scientifically in these years; however, the principles have not been resolved. Therefore, about 200 participants, including a few Japanese Diet Members (Representatives & Councillors) will gather at Hakone camp in Kanagawa, Japan and hold discussions on these and other matters. A variety of phenomena such as spiritual healing, qi gong, ayurveda, near-death experience, and supernatural phenomena exist which cannot be explained by modern science. The world view of each field will be explained to the participants, and then discussions will be held about these topics. Moreover, direct interactions and experiences in each field will be offered to participants, such as various demonstrations of qi gong, therapy, etc. As an option, participants can also deepen their understanding about hypnotic therapy etc. .

Effect of various foods on stress reduction

Research Institute, Morinaga & Co., Ltd. (Yokohama, Japan)
Abstract:
Chromogranin A (CgA) levels and the novel pupil stress value (which was obtained by measuring the reaction of the eye pupil towards a flash of light) were employed as sensitive and substantialindexes indices of psychosomatic stress to determine stress reductionactivity of various foods. CgA levels showed a significant difference (P < 0.05) for cheese, whey protein, and hard biscuit compared with that for control water. The pupil stress value showed a significant difference (P < 0.05) for soft candy, cacao extract, milk, raw royal jelly, chewing gum, and -amino butyric acid (GABA). We developed a soft candy, supplemented with cacao extract and whey protein, that has had a significant difference (P < 0.01) in stress reduction activity from compared with that of water.

Magnetic Stimuli for Pieces of Cucumber - Quantitative Measurement Using Biophotons -

Abstract:
After treatment by non-contact healing for pieces of cucumber, the intensity of biophotons from the cucumber increases. To study the details of physical and chemical mechanisms of non-contact healing, the authors gave magnetic stimuli to cucumber samples and compared biophoton data with data of non-contact healing. Magnetic treatments were done for 30 minutes by static magnetism (180mT), alternating magnetism (80mT, 50Hz) or pulse magnetism (maximum 0.6T, pulse width 2.5ms). Results showed that there was no change of biophoton intensities under conditions of static and alternating magnetic stimuli. Pulse magnetic stimuli decreased biophoton intensity (p=0.047, Wilcoxon, two tails), but the time transition differed from non-contact healing. Effects of magnetic stimuli were considered as different from those of non-contact healing.
Keywords:
cucumber, biophoton, magnetic stimuli, non-contact healing

Abstract:
The authors tested a famous Chinese psychic (female, 40 years old) during psychokinesis tasks "teleportation". Targets were vitamin pills on an electric balance or in a bottle. The subject tried to teleport the pills in free style tests for 30-45 min. During the tasks, her brain blood flow was measured by functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), and also respiration, electrodermal activity and photoplethysmograms were measured. Pill weights were measured with an analytical semi-micro balance every second at 0.01 mg accuracy. Video cameras, field RNGs, a thermograph, field IR sensors and an electrostatic voltmeter were set near the balance. The subject was given a profile questionnaire and 5 questionnaires on character traits such as Big Five test. The Uchida-Kraepelin Psychodiagnostic test was also done. Moreover, to allow comparison to other studies, the subject was given a facial recognition test using photos of a young Japanese woman's face as stimuli. No teleportation phenomena were observed. Brain blood flow increased at the subject's right cerebral hemisphere during the tasks. Activated areas were similar to those during facial recognition tests. Only one of the field RNGs showed a significant deviation during the experimental period. Electrostatic voltmeter measurements suggested that the electric charge of her body was disturbed slightly during tasks. Based on her results of psychological tests, the subject's personality was evaluated as ordinary, and not special.

Effects on the Brain by Sound Stimulations
under Consideration of High Frequency Band

Institute for Living Body Measurements, International Research Institute (Chiba, Japan)

Abstract:
Various sounds effects, included infra- and hypersonic effects on living bodies have been the subject of many discussions. In this report, EEGs were measured and those effects were evaluated using a headphone with special technology, i.e. ultra sound technology (UST), an audio-player with a fluency method and an audio CD specially prepared for improvement of auditory perception. ERPs (event related potentials of the brain) were studied before and after listening to the special CD. The wave ratios on the frontal to the occipital area tended to become large when the sounds included a high frequency band. Latencies of P300 of ERPs tended to become short after listening to the special CD. Amplitudes of MMN (mismatch negativity), that is small potential changes caused by the preconscious perception of slight differences of sounds, became small after listening to the special CD.
Keywords:
EEG, frontal wave, P300, mismatch negativity, hypersonic stimulation

Consciousness, Unconsciousness and Dreaming
-With the Brain Waves of Jucelino Nóbrega da Luz-

Abstract:
When we try to investigate unknown, mysterious phenomena scientifically, not only the direct measurements of the phenomena-self, but also physiological measurements on observers and on recipients of the phenomena's effect are undoubtedly important. As physiological data, information from the brain must be most expected. However, as the data obtained are indirect information from subcranial activities and furthermore the brain information in itself is just indirect for the inquired phenomena, it is very difficult to pull out the essential information from the data. The problem of 'consciousness' cannot be ignored in any consideration about the brain. Further, consideration of the physiological data related to unconsciousness must be important. So, various previous experiments carried out by the authors are reviewed on these points. Additionally, the authors have recently measured the EEGs of a Brazilian dream reporter, Jucelino Nóbrega da Luz. Consciousness, unconsciousness and dreaming are considered with reference to his EEGs, and then scientific considerations of unknown phenomena are made from the data.
Keywords:
EEG, unconsciousness, lucid dream, sleep stage, REM
