Experimental research of human body activity after death

Saint-Petersburg State Technical University SPIFMO


Today’s world is characterized by the understanding of the fact that most of the problems studied by the modern civilization are somehow associated with the human – his life, health, the very essence of his existence. Western science gradually comes to a new paradigm of the world, in which the human Consciousness, structure of human energy-informational fields is a forming element of physical world. The present work is an example of a technocrat approach to the investigation of fundamental problems of Human existence  problems of Life and Death, and represents a short review of experimental research of energy-informational activity of human body after death using Kirlian effect.

Application of Electrophoton Capture (EPC) Analysis Based on Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) Technique in Medicine: a Systematic Review

KOROTKOV K.G., Ph.D.,1 MATRAVERS P., Pharm.D.,2 ORLOV D.V., M.S.1,


Objectives: To evaluate the scale and scope of implementing EPC analysis based on gas discharge visualization technique in diverse medical applications and psycho-physiology; to identify the range of applications in medicine; and to show in which areas the procedure can be useful to health professionals.

The high effectiveness of modern complex examination of pregnant women has a reverse side – it requires large effort and it’s expensive. It is clear that the development of informative, cheaper and widely available methods is an extremely important problem for the modern Russian public health service.

The general field of energy medicine is growing strongly but is still in great need of reliable monitoring instruments to assess the relative energetic state of humans with respect to a healthy/pathology ratio. According to ancient Chinese medical therapy, the overall energy state and health condition of a human is largely determined by the flow of a substance called Qi through a system of channels, called meridians, distributed throughout the human
body. Qi, is thought to flow into and out of the body via a network of acupuncture points and via the meridian network, to nourish various organ systems, neural systems, muscle groups, etc., of the coarse physical body(1). Imbalances between Qi flow in the various meridians is thought to over-nourish various coarse physical body systems and under-nourish others,
leading eventually to different types of pathology development in such systems. Stimulation of specific acupuncture points via one of a variety of procedures, is thought to perturb the Qi-flow pattern towards optimal balance for the body and create a lessening or removal of the growing pathology. The NIH consensus report states that acupuncture has been quite helpful for lessening the severity of a variety of human disorders (2). It is therefore quite natural that commercial devices for evaluating the condition of the meridian energy state would be seriously considered by those involved in complementary and alternative medicine.

The EPC system has been approved by Russian Health Authorities for general use, following clinical trials and the recommendation of the Russian Academy of Sciences. It utilizes almost instantaneous, non-invasive and painless measurements and sophisticated interpretive software with comparisons to an extremely large and reliable database assembled over more than 10 years. This technology has far reaching diagnostic and human performance applications.

What does the EPC method measure in physical terms?

The EPC method is based on the stimulation of photon and electron emissions from the surface of the object whilst transmitting short electrical pulses. In other words, when the object is placed in an electromagnetic field, it is primarily electrons, and to a certain degree photons, which are ‘extracted’ from the surface of the object. This process is called ‘photo-electron emissions’ and it has been quite well studied with physical electronic methods. The emitted particles accelerate in the electromagnetic field, generating electronic avalanches on the surface of the dielectric (glass). This process is called ‘sliding gas discharge’. The discharge causes glow due to the excitement of molecules in the surrounding gas, and this glow is what is being measured by the EPC method. Therefore, voltage pulses stimulate optoelectronic emission whilst intensifying this emission in the gas discharge, owing to the electric field created.
