Remote Biodynamic Sensing and
Methods of Biodynamic Signal Translation
The plant response detector or signal processing translator detailed
in "Detecting Biodynamic Signals" represents only a fraction of the
equipment used in the disclosure of biodynamic signals.
utilized a system which included a telescope for sighting, a biodetector assembly containing biological transducers, electronic
signal conversion equipment, EM artifact detection equipment, and a
video attachment for the production of biograms.
In the eighty page
patent document entitled "Methods and Receiver for Biological Data
Transport" (see Appendix B), Dr. Lawrence sites five different
methods of signal processing translators as follows:
Bridge Method - Biological semiconductors exhibiting electrical
resistance changes due to external signal impingement may be
arranged in a classic Wheatstone bridge arrangement (see schematic
in previous issue).
Capacitance Method - Biological semiconductors expressing
variations of capacitance during stimulus events may be embodied to
function as a frequency-control element in an oscillator of the FM
type. Read-out may then be secured by means of a frequency counter
or equally suited device. High impedance or optical devices are used
to sense given piezoelectric phenomena accompanying capacitive
Electrostatic Method - Biological semiconductors which are electrostatically active (active charge acquisition and depletion)
as a result of local excitation and the presence of external
biodynamic signal events may be read out by means of a
charge-coupled device (CCD) or on photographic film.
Optical Method - Biological semiconductors evidencing optical
properties of a primary (luminescence) or secondary (transparency
alterations) type during signal incidence may be read out by means
of photoelectric devices and Bragg cells.
Self-Potential Method - Biological semiconductors expressing
changes in electrical self-potentials due to signal incidence, may
be amplified by non-loading high impedance devices such as
As we can see, there are a variety of means by which we may obtain
and translate signals of a biodynamic character in biological
It must be remembered, however, that biological
materials exhibit characteristic actions of their own due to normal
living cell function. It is the sensitization or excitation duty
either as a service of the processing method or induced separately
which will suspend these functions to secure diagnostic control over
natural and inter-communicatively induced responses of living cells.
In our experiments, methods 1, 2, and 5, offer the most continuously
successful procedure of biodynamic signal procurement, and are also
the most cost effective.
The repeated success of this
instrumentation may be primarily due to the combinative
sensitizing/receiving nature of the acquiring method.
Image Acquisition and Biograms
Early on in the RBS experiments, Dr. Lawrence developed a means by
which biodynamic signals could be translated into video images.
Although he spoke of using CCD technology as an ideal, he favored
the most basic biological data display technique of using facsimile
recording. This system simply injects the electrical signals
produced by the biological semiconductors into a type of AM
This modulates a given frequency band in such a manner so
that varying amplitudes are a precise reflection of the modulating
direct current product which can then be rendered into facsimile
images. In our experiments, we have utilized the same protocols with
greater flexibility regarding image resolution and acquisition.
In the first system we used to produce
biogram, the signal
processing translator’s modulated biodynamic signal output was fed
directly into a PC via a Digital Signal Processing (DSP) interface
(first tests were conducted on an old 80386 but for portability and
speed, a Pentium 100 laptop was used).
Special software was used to
provide the images on the screen which could then be saved and later
The Biograms we generated begin with a complex of
individual frequency components and harmonics of the modulated
biodynamic audio output, which covers a wide frequency range and
varies in intensity over time. The software simply plots the
frequency content of the biodynamic signal as a function of time
with harmonic intensity represented by a variable color scale.
software uses a mathematical Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) in
performing the frequency analysis. FFTs are usually specified by the
number of input data points used in each calculation. For a sampling
rate of F (cps), an N input point FFT will produce a frequency
analysis over a frequency range of F/2.
Signal amplitude will be
calculated at N/2 frequency increments in this range.
provides both narrowband and broadband processing options.
Narrowband processing produces a display of high frequency
resolution which resolves the individual harmonics of the audio
Broadband processing broadens the frequency response of the FFT and produces a display which smoothes over the individual
harmonics to show broad areas of intensity.
To simplify, the
software package samples the input, performs an FFT, and graphs the
output in the form of a 3D time-frequency plot or spectrogram, where
one axis is time, the second is frequency, and the vertical axis is
the signal level at the specific time and frequency.
were finally extracted from the complex modulated portions of the
emergent spectrographic image. Then very small sections of the image
- little more than a few microseconds in duration - were enlarged to
an appropriate viewing magnification.
These completed Biograms could
later be rendered into video presentations in a frame-by-frame
While this system is not the ultimate in Biogram
acquisition (mainly due to its dependence on the linear time
constraints of the received signals), it presents specific imaging
of the perceived biodynamic modulations. One of the major advantages
of this system is that the AM modulated biodynamic signals can be
recorded and stored on analog or digital media to be later played
back for image processing.
Our newer system involves a more direct approach to image
although it is still impaired by the linearity of time. In this
system, real-time Biograms are produced utilizing software and some
hardware designed for radio-facsimile reception. This method is
closer to what Dr. Lawrence used with the exception that it is
easier to control specific parameters through the computer software
It was Dr. Lawrence’s goal to secure biodynamic signal images
without the need for a time dependent scanning process - to procure
complete frames instantly - much like the older Radionic systems of Drown and De laWarr.
Since Dr. Lawrence assumed the character of
biodynamic information was strictly of an eidetic nature (meaning
that its reception is in the form of whole images), and it appeared
to propagate in a longitudinal (time independent) fashion, the prior
systems of instant frame acquisition would be ideal.
device (CCD) technology while promising, is expensive and provides a
somewhat distorted biodynamic image resolution. Photographic film
techniques, while procuring the highest resolution images, are time
consuming and relatively unmanageable in most field situations.
is currently in progress to modify and develop similar systems in
conjunction with present technology.
Field Tests and Biodynamic Signal Acquisition
L. George Lawrence spent much of his time in isolated desert
locations performing remote biological sensing operations.
parts of the desert are free from electromagnetic interference which
can complicate biodynamic signal interpretation, so it is an ideal
place to perform experiments in remote biological sensing. As we
have already discussed, Dr. Lawrence’s system incorporated many
instruments in his field operation system. This system is best
observed in the patent figures and instrumentation diagrams.
A typical field operational setup for remote biological sensing
includes the following: An astronomical telescope, a Faraday chamber
that contains the biological transducer complex, a rotating shutter
for "chopping" incident electromagnetic interference for easier
detection, a temperature controller, a regulated power supply, a
local oscillator to permit an AC-rendition (for AC recording) of the
data envelope modulated by a DC amplifier, and final recording of
data by a field recorder.
A processing amplifier and meter provide
primary, unmodulated monitoring of the incoming signals.
Initially, Dr. Lawrence conducted his field experiments with the
goal of obtaining signals from living systems such as Joshua trees.
He would simply inject a premeasured amount of DC electricity into
the tree by remote control while training the sights of his field
equipment containing the biological transducers directly on the
As the tree began to respond to the current, the
biological transducers would simultaneously react to the irritation
experienced by the tree. Increasing the distance from the subject
(up to several miles) proved no obstacle to the reception of signals
with no decrease in signal intensity. With these many inaugural
tests, Dr. Lawrence was able to perfect his system of the reception
of biodynamic signals.
The RBS field equipment in current use at BSRF (see photo
top page) is nearly
identical to Dr. Lawrence’s with a few minor adaptations and
modifications. In comparing the photo with the diagram, one can see
that our system has been condensed into a smaller package, and this
is mainly due to technological advances in the miniaturization of
specific components since Dr. Lawence’s day.
The telescope, a 4.5
inch reflector with equatorial mount and motor drive, is standard
and is identical to the one used by Dr. Lawrence.
chamber has been reduced in size, and incorporates specific
geometric proportions (the Golden Section) for optimum Biodynamic
signal procurement. The system is "shutterless" as incident
electromagnetic interference is easily detected within the biomass
cavity by a highly sensitive EM probe (newer designs in
sensor technology are completely insensitive to any EMR and need no
Temperature control and monitoring is also done from
within the biomass cavity. All electronics for monitoring incoming
signals are housed in a single unit, and the field recorder is of
the microcassette type. A countdown timer is used to indicate time
elapsed, and to signal the end of the tape. In addition to the
standard equipment, a laptop portable computer is used to
continually render images of the modulated biodynamic signals for
visual monitoring while in the field.
Ancillary equipment may
include star chart software, magnetometers for monitoring
geomagnetic disturbances, and various other electronic devices used
for detecting EM artifact.
