The 28th Symposium on Life Information Science
gSeeking a New World View Which Can Explain

Abstract:
The International Society of Life Information Science (ISLIS) has sought scientific proofs of existence of wonderful phenomena and resolution of their principles since its foundation in 1995. 28 symposia have been held and 28 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 14 years. The existence of many wonderful phenomena has been proved scientifically in these years; however, their accompanying principles have not been resolved. Therefore, many participants 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.

Abstract:
In an out-of-body experience (OBE) a person feels his consciousness leaves his own body. Dao-jiao Nei-dan-fa (tao method) can induce a meditative OBE. The author used near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to measure a body parameter change during OBE. The veteran subject (male, 71y) showed remarkable decrease of brain blood flow in his prefrontal brain area.

Abstract:
he aim of this article is to examine a case suggesting the existence of reincarnation by examining so-called past-life memories. Specifically, we will focus on a case of xenoglossy (a phenomenon in which a person shows the ability to use a language that he or she cannot have learned by natural means). We examine the words the subject uttered while she was in the state of hypnosis and the information she provided.
Keywords:

Abstract:
Measurements of EEGs and other physiological changes while practicing Taichi-quan were followed up from our last JISLIS report. In these measurements, we studied responses of a female beginner who did Taichi-quan training for a 6-month period. Her EGG and other measurements were compared with those of two experts who have been training for 12 and 20 years. As a comparison for the benefits of Taichi-quan exercise, a simple stepping was carried out. The EEG waves, which are usually large in the occipital area, become smaller during Taichi-quan, because of movement. However, the waves of advanced trainees decreased only a little and the ratios of the frontal to the occipital waves, [Fp]/[O], became large. The beginner in this report could practice Taichi-quan in a more relaxed manner as the length of the training period became longer and her waves became gradually larger. In the same time, the frontal ? waves also became larger and the ratio [Fp]/[O] tended to become slightly larger with each additional training month. In the resting state after the comparison stepping exercise, the awakened level of the subjects tended to become lower, though that after Taichi-quan the level was kept very well.

Abstract:
We measured brain blood flow using fNIRS for subjects while they did choreography memory task accompanying a music DVD. We found common activated areas at the prefrontal area of four subjects and those were considered to be areas activated by music. The other activated areas could be categorized into two patterns. One of them seemed to be a reflection of memory activities to guess the whole process of the choreography comprehensively, and the other was a reflection of guessing a logical or spatial structure of the choreography. Working memory areas were not activated. Our results suggested a possibility that different strategies of memory showed different patterns at prefrontal areas.

Development of a Gas Measurement Method with Cucumber as a Bio-sensor

Abstract:
Using biophotons from cucumber, the authors previously developed a quantitative measurement method for non-contact healing (bio-PK). A biophoton measurement method can estimate a healerfs controlled healing power in just one or two trials. However, expensiveness of the equipment for biophoton measurements has obstructed widespread use of the method. The authors took notice of a gas being generated simultaneously with the emission of biophotons, and tried to develop an easy method in which this gas is measured by a gas-measuring detector tube. There is no specialized tube for cucumber gas, but the authors found that a short-term quick-measuring detector tube for ethyl acetate (141L, Gastec, Japan) can be used. Then, an easy and inexpensive method was developed in which pieces of cucumber are set in a sealed container and their gas emission is measured with the gas detector tube 24h later.

Considerations on Consciousness-Science for Miscellaneous Mysterious Phenomena
Considerations on spiritual phenomena or the spirit from the viewpoint of information waves

Abstract:
It is recognized that there are miscellaneous mysterious phenomena caused by human Qi which is a mind-wish composed of information. Information has a universal (or non-local) existence in the space-time world with the indeterminacy principle of quantum theory for ultra-minute particles or waves. Information is also thought to exist in a thin distribution in the whole space from ancient times to the future. Chemical information in the structural bodies of deoxyribonucleic acids becomes the source of life-phenomena. If it is supposed that a similar phenomenon can occur with information structural bodies which consist of ultra-minute information particles, it is possible to think that there is a soul or spirit of universal (or non-local) existence. This soul or spirit is resonant with consciousness of a human being and it is possible to cause spiritual phenomena, for instance, channeling, dependence, or power of words and suggestion, etc.

Keywords:
Qi, mind-wish, mysterious phenomena, information wave, consciousness science, spiritual phenomena, Spirit, power of words
