"The effect of the "laying on of hands" on transplanted breast cancer in mice" (William F. Bengston, David Krinsley), Journal of Scientific Exploration. 2000;14(3):353-364

Abstract: "After witnessing numerous cases of cancer remission associated with a healer who used "laying on of hands" in New York, one of us (W.B.) "apprenticed" in techniques alleged to reproduce the healing effect. We obtained five experimental mice with mammary adenocarcinoma (code: H2712; host strain: C3H/HeJ; strain of origin: c3H/HeHu), which had a predicted 100% fatality between 14 and 27 days subsequent to injection. Bengston treated these mice for 1 hour per day for 1 month. The tumors developed a "blackened area," then they ulcerated, imploded, and closed, and the mice lived their normal life spans. Control mice sent to another city died within the predicted time frame. Three replication using skeptical volunteers (including D.K.) and laboratories at Queens College and St. Joseph's College produced an overall cure rate of 87.9% in 33 experimental mice. An additional informal test by Krinsley at Arizona State resulted in the same patterns. Histological studies indicated viable cancer cells through all stages of remission. Reinjections of cancer into the mice in remission in Arizona and New York did not take, suggesting a stimulated immunological response to the treatment. Our tentative conclusions: Belief in laying on of hands is not necessary in order to produce the effect; there is a stimulated immune response to treatment, which is reproducible and predictable; and the mice retain an immunity to the same cancer after remission. Future work should involve testing on various diseases and conventional immunological studies of treatment effects on experimental animals." 


I have been awarded a sabbatical for the fall 2002 semester to work with the cancer center of the University of Connecticut's medical school.  We are moving on several fronts.  First, we are going to replicate my healing studies in their "clean" lab, with an eye towards discovering what biological processes are involved in tumor regression.  And second, I will be working with the radiology department doing functional MRI imaging to see if there are detectable brain patterns associated with healing.  I will need several thousand dollars to cover costs of travel and housing.  We already have funding for all medical costs.

Other research directions/questions raised by this study are:

1.  to determine the nature of the healing energy itself. Since we have a completely reliable procedure, there are many experiments that can be performed. For example, is there a way to "filter" out the healing effect, either through electromagnetic shielding or even through physical objects? If so, we will know some of the attributes of the energy. Is there X amount of energy being generated?...our observation is that the speed of remission is inversely related to body mass. Is this a function of metabolic rate or X amount of energy needed to produce a remission? If twenty mice remiss at a slower rate than ten, then it is likely to be a function of the amount of energy produced. If not, it is likely to be metabolic rate. Etc, etc. etc....

2. The second line of research is to produce practical outcomes from the cured mice. We have found that cured mice live their normal life spans, and even upon re-injection are immune to the cancer. This has to be an immune response to treatment, which may in turn be transferable. 

If you would like to discuss any of these matters, please let me know.

During the past 10 years a basically new Hierarchic Theory of Matter and Field has been
elaborated and quantitatively verified on examples of water and ice by computer
simulations. Corresponding computer program (copyright 1997, Kaivarainen): 
"Comprehensive Analyzer of Matter Properties (CAMP)" makes it possible to evaluate 
about 300 physical parameters of any liquid and solid. The idea of new optoacoustic 
device with similar name - CAMP, described below, is based on Hierarchic theory and 
computer program. 

The market for Comprehensive Analyzer of Matter Properties (CAMP) is free and due 
to its unique informational potential could be even bigger than that for IR, Raman 
or Brillouin spectrometers. 

I propose to my potential partner collaboration in building of CAMP prototype, 
its patenting, manufacturing and marketing 

by: Alex Kaivarainen 

The new physical device named: Comprehensive Analyzer of Matter Properties (CAMP) 
with novel and wide possibilities for fundamental study of condensed matter 
(liquid and solid), monitoring of different process in pharmaceutics, beverage and 
paper technology, chemical and polymer technology, biotechnology and technology 
of real materials has been proposed. This device is based on the new Hierarchic 
Theory of Matter and related computer program (CAMP)", developed by A. Kaivarainen 
(copyright 1997). 

Theory has been published in my books: 
- "Mesoscopic theory of condensed matter and its interaction with light", University 
of Turku, Finland, 1992; 
- "Hierarchic Concept of Matter and Field. Water, biosystems and elementary 
particles" New York, 1995.

Corresponding series of articles is presented at the web site and are available 
on-line: [New Articles]
and at the Archives of Los Alamos:


The results of calculations of  a lot of parameters for water and ice, using our computer program (CAMP), are very close to available experimental data. This fact confirms the correctness of new theory. Quantum Hierarchic theory is a first one general for liquids and solids. Our theory unifies and extends strongly the Einstein and Debye models. It considers the condensed matter as a "gas" of different kinds of three-dimensional (3D) standing waves: 
- de Broglie waves, related to molecular translations (tr) and librations (lb); 
- IR photons, corresponding to intermolecular (tr) and (lb) modes; 
- thermal phonons. 

The hierarchical model, describing virtually all the properties of condensed matter, is a result of superposition of four new basic types of quasiparticles (collective excitations): Effectons, Convertons, Transitons and Deformons, which are strongly interrelated with each other. 

EFFECTONS are three-dimensional (3D) superposition of standing de Broglie waves of molecules or ions, related to their translations and librations. The thermal in-phase (acoustic, a) or counter phase (optic, b) oscillations of particles in the volume of effectons are coherent. In general case the EFFECTONS represent coherent clusters, resulted from high temperature molecular Bose condensation, as it shown in our computer simulations; 
CONVERTONS [tr/lb] are responsible for interconversions between translational and librational types of the effectons; 
TRANSITONS are related with (a - b) quantum transitions - quantum beats between acoustic and optic anharmonic modes of the effectons. They can radiate and absorb coherent IR photons or thermal phonons; 
DEFORMONS: primary (electromagnetic) and secondary (acoustic) represent a 3D superposition - interception of standing photons and phonons, correspondingly, radiated by TRANSITONS.

All possible combinations of the above listed four basic excitations lead to HIERARCHIC SYSTEM of 4!=24 quasiparticles, making it possible the comprehensive quantitative description of any kind of condensed matter. 
Hierarchic theory is quantitatively confirmed already on the examples of water and ice in books, mentioned above. It is a new convenient bridge for unification of Micro - and Macro - Word in terms of quantum physics, making it possible to get a qualitatively and quantitatively new information about liquids and solids. 

The set of formulae obtained in our theory allows to calculate about 300 parameters of any condensed matter. Most of them are hidden, i.e. inaccessible for direct experimental measurements.

Simulations evaluation of these parameters can be done using our computer program: CAMP (copyright 1997, Kaivarainen) and the following experimental methods: 

1. Far/middle IR spectroscopy for determination the positions of 
translational or librational bands: (30-2500) cm-1; 
2. Sound velocimetry; 
3. Dilatometry, for molar volume or density registration; 
4. Refractometry. 

These data should be obtained simultaneously at the same temperature and pressure from the SAME SAMPLE in ideal case. Among the parameters of matter evaluated are so important as: internal energy, heat capacity, thermal conductivity, viscosity, coefficient of self-diffusion, surface tension, solvent activity, vapor pressure, internal pressure, parameters of all types of quasiparticles (concentration, volume, dimensions, energy, probability of excitation, life-time) and many others. The combination of equipment listed above (1-4) in one unit (CAMP) makes it possible to conduct such kind of measurements and corresponding computer simulations. 

The most complicated and expensive component of CAMP is FT-IR spectrometer for far and middle region. 
The most sensitive parameter is sound velocity. The less sensitive and stable parameter is molar volume or density. 

One of possible CAMP configuration should include special attachment to FT-IR spectrometer, making it possible the simultaneous registration of reflection spectra in far/middle IR region and refraction index. Such approach 
allows to study the properties of samples with strong IR absorption (i.e. aqueous systems) and non transparent mediums. 
The combination of such modified FT-IR spectrometer with another device for simultaneous measurement of matter density and sound velocity will provide 4 parameters, listed above, to run our computer (copyright, 1997, Kaivarainen). 
The sample cell for liquids and solids should have a shape, allowing to make all these measurements simultaneously. The interface of CAMP's registration techniques with personal computer makes it possible a monitoring of very different dynamic physical process in real time. 

Another configuration of CAMP may include as a basic device the Brillouin light scattering spectrometer. It makes possible simultaneous measurement of sound velocity (from the Doppler shift of side bands of Brillouin spectra) and positions of intermolecular bands [tr and lb] in oscillatory spectra in the far IR. Our hierarchic theory of Brillouin light scattering gives much more information about condensed matter properties than conventional one.

Comprehensive Analyzer of Matter Properties (CAMP) represents a basically new type of scientific equipment, allowing to get incomparable big amount of information concerning physics of liquids or solids. It can be very useful for fundamental study of dynamics, thermodynamics and mesoscopic structure of pure matter, solid and liquid solutions, the colloid systems and host-guest systems. 
CAMP may be very useful for monitoring of physical parameters of drinking water, drug solutions, pulp in paper technology. In biotechnology CAMP can be used for elucidation of mechanism of the antifreeze and ice nucleation proteins action on water dynamic structure and thermodynamics. 
In biophysics CAMP may provide the crucial information about the role of water in biosystems, water mediated distant interactions between biopolimers in a course of their conformational change. 
Study of influence of electromagnetic and acoustic fields on aqueous systems and water - dependent process is possible using CAMP. The monitoring of crystal growth and new materials production is possible also. 

CAMP allows to get very detailed information about following processes: temperature and pressure induced first and second order phase transitions, self-organization in water-polymer and biological systems, liquid crystals, perturbations of matter stimulated by external physical fields, etc. 

Such complicated phenomena as the turbulence, superfluity and superconductivity can be quantitatively analyzed and elucidated. CAMP can be used also for understanding the mechanism of turbulence and ways of its regulation by physical fields. It's a matter of big scientific and practical importance. For this end a special cuvette with circulating liquid can be constructed. 

CAMP will be useful in a lot of research laboratories, studying condensed matter physics as well as in INDUSTRY of chemical technology and nanotechnology, for monitoring the processes of crystallization, polymerization, chemical reactions and the final properties of real materials. 

Configuration of CAMP, based on micro IR-spectroscopy or confocal Brillouin microspectrometry could allow the comprehensive analysis of matter properties in microvolumes.

6. Mechanism of transition of flow from the laminar to turbulent one and the ways of this process regulation by means of electromagnetic and acoustic fields; 

7. Evaluation of frequencies of cavitational fluctuations of water for the end of their effective resonant stimulation. It may be useful for: 
a) desinfection of drinking water; 
b) development of pure energy technology; 
c) cold fusion stimulation. 

II. Application to nonaqueous systems

1. Fundamental research in all branches of condensed matter physics: thermodynamics, dynamics, phase transitions, transport process, surface tension, self-diffusion, viscosity, vapor pressure, etc. (Universities and Research centers);

2. Monitoring of new materials technology for searching the optimal conditions (T, P, physical fields) for providing the optimal parameters on mesoscopic and macroscopic scale for their best quality; 

3. Study of mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity; 

4. Study of mechanism of superfluidity. 

The market for Comprehensive Analyzer of Matter Properties (CAMP) is free 
and due to its unique informational potential could be much bigger than that 
for IR, Raman or Brillouin spectrometers.

Extended Summary

A quantum based new hierarchic quantitative theory, general for solids and liquids, has been developed. It is assumed, that anharmonic oscillations of particles in any condensed matter leadto emergence of three-dimensional (3D) superposition of standing de Broglie waves ofmolecules, electromagnetic and acoustic waves. Consequently, any condensed matter could beconsidered as a gas of 3D standing waves of corresponding nature. Our approach unifies anddevelops the Einstein’s and Debye’s models.
Collective excitations, like 3D standing de Broglie waves of molecules, representing atcertain conditions the molecular Bose condensate, were analyzed, as a background of hierarchicmodel of condensed matter.

The most probable de Broglie wave (wave B) length is determined by the ratio of Plank constant to the most probable impulse of molecules, or by ratio of its most probable phase velocity to frequency. The waves B of molecules are related to their translations (tr) and librations (lb).
As the quantum dynamics of condensed matter is anharmonic and does not follow theclassical Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, the real most probable de Broglie wave length can exceed the classical thermal de Broglie wave length and the distance between centers of molecules many times.

This makes possible the atomic and molecular mesoscopic Bose condensation in solids and liquids at temperatures, below boiling point. It is one of the most important results of new theory, which we have confirmed by computer simulations on examples of water and ice and applying to Virial theorem.

Four strongly interrelated new types of quasiparticles (collective excitations) were introduced in our hierarchic model: 
Effectons (tr and lb), existing in ”acoustic” (a) and ”optic” (b) states represent the coherent clusters in general case;
2. Convertons, corresponding to interconversions between tr and lb types of the effectons Transitons are the intermediate [a<--> b] transition states of the tr and lb effectons;
Deformons are the 3D superposition of IR electromagnetic or acoustic waves, activated by transitons and convertons.

Primary effectons (tr and lb) are formed by 3D superposition of the most probable of the oscillating ions, atoms or molecules. The volume of effectons (tr and lb) may contain from less than one, to tens and even thousands of molecules. The first condition means validity of classical approximation in description of the subsystems of the quantum properties of coherent clusters due to mesoscopic Bose condensation (mBC), in contrast to macroscopic BC, pertinent for superfluidity and superconductivity
The liquids are semiclassical systems because their primary (tr) effectons contain less than one molecule and primary (lb) effectons - more than one molecule. The solids are quantum These consequences of our theory are confirmed by computer The 1st order [gas--> liquid] transition is accompanied by strong decreasing of number of rotational (librational) degrees of freedom due to emergence of primary (lb) effectons and  [liquid--> solid] transition - by decreasing of translational degrees of freedom due to Bose-condensation of primary (tr) effectons. 
In the general case the effecton can be approximated by parallelepiped with edges determined by de Broglie waves length in three selected directions (1, 2, 3), related to symmetry of molecular dynamics. In the case of isotropic molecular motion the effectons’ shape is approximated by cube. 
The number of molecules in the volume of primary effectons (tr and lb) is considered as the ”parameter of order” in our theory of 1st order phase transitions. The in-phase oscillations of molecules in the effectons correspond to the effecton’s (a) -
acoustic state and the counterphase oscillations correspond to their (b) - optic state. States (a) and (b) of the effectons differ in potential energy only, however, their kinetic energies, impulses and spatial dimensions - are the same. The b-state of the effectons has a common feature with Frölich’s polar mode.

The a-->b or b--> a transition states of the primary effectons (tr and lb), defined as primary transitons, are accompanied by a change in molecule polarizability and dipole moment without density fluctuations. At this case they lead to absorption or radiation of IR photons, respectively. Superposition of three internal standing IR photons of different directions (1,2,3) - forms primary electromagnetic deformons (tr and lb). 
On the other hand, the [lb<-->
tr] convertons and secondary transitons are accompanied by  
Superposition of standing phonons in three directions (1,2,3), forms secondary acoustic
Correlated collective excitations of primary and secondary effectons and deformons (tr and
macroeffectons, macrotransitons and macrodeformons (tr and lb respectively)
Correlated simultaneous excitations of tr and lb macroeffectons in the volume of superimposed
tr and lb electromagnetic deformons lead to origination of supereffectons. 
In turn, the simultaneous excitation of
both: tr and lb macrodeformons and in the same volume means origination of superdeformons. Superdeformons are the biggest (cavitational) fluctuations, leading to microbubbles in liquids and to local defects in solids.

Total number of quasiparticles of condensed matter equal to 4!=24, reflects all of possible combinations of the four basic ones [1-4], introduced above. This set of collective excitations in the form of ”gas” of 3D standing waves of three types: de Broglie, acoustic and electromagnetic - is shown to be able to explain virtually all the properties of all condensed matter. 

The important positive feature of our hierarchic model of matter is that it does not need the semi-empirical intermolecular potentials for calculations, which are unavoidable in existing theories of many body systems. The potential energy of intermolecular interaction is involved indirectly in dimensions and stability of quasiparticles, introduced in our model.

The main formulae of theory are the same for liquids and solids and include following experimental parameters, which take into account their different properties: 

[1]- Positions of (tr) and (lb) bands in oscillatory spectra;

[2]- Sound velocity;

[3]- Density;

[4]- Refraction index.

The knowledge of these four basic parameters at the same temperature and pressure makes it possible using our computer program, to evaluate more than 300 important characteristics of any condensed matter. Among them are such as: total internal energy, kinetic and potential energies, heat-capacity and thermal conductivity, surface tension, vapor pressure, viscosity, coefficient of self-diffusion, osmotic pressure, solvent activity, etc. Most of calculated parameters are hidden, i.e. inaccessible to direct experimental measurement.

This is the first theory able to predict all known experimental anomalies for water and ice. The conformity between theory and experiment is very good even without adjustable parameters. The hierarchic concept creates a bridge between micro- and macro- phenomena, dynamics and thermodynamics, liquids and solids in terms of quantum physics.
