Russian Scientists Replicate 'Impossible' Mitogenetic Radiation

(Partial text from Winter 2000-2001 issue)

A heated debate recently erupted among biologists and physicists at Moscow State University, about a series of experiments by A.B. Burlakov and his collaborators, demonstrating nonlinear interactions between living organisms, ostensibly mediated by electromagnetic radiation alone. The results of the experiments were so striking and unexpected to many of the Moscow biologists, that they were initially dismissed as 'impossible.' A number of the skeptics tried the experiments themselves, and were astonished to find exactly the effects reported by Burlakov et al.

In fact, back in the 1920s, the famous Russian biophysicist Alexander Gurwitsch had already established beyond any reasonable doubt, that living cells and tissues generate an extremely weak, yet biologically active, form of electromagnetic radiation, in particular in the ultraviolet range; and that the presence of this radiation is somehow intimately connected with the nature of living processes themselves.

Gurwitsch was led to his experimental demonstration of what he called "mitogenetic radiation" in a lawful and rigorous way, as a by-product of his attempts to hypothesize a universal biophysical principle, the which (among other things) would encompass the paradoxical, but otherwise undeniable correlations between events of cell division (mitosis) and other events occurring in widely separated locations within a living organism.

Gurwitsch's work, like that of his great Ukrainian-Russian scientific contemporary Vernadsky, was a direct outgrowth of the work of Louis Pasteur, and ultimately of Kepler and Leibniz. Exactly for that reason, it was systematically suppressed; both in the West—where the Rockefeller Foundation directly targetted Gurwitsch's and related work from the late 1920s on, as a threat to its promotion of reductionist "molecular biology"—and, to a somewhat lesser extent, in the Soviet Union itself.

The oligarchical effort to shut down Gurwitsch, and other branches of the Leibnizian/Pasteurian thrust in biology and medicine in particular, went hand-in-hand with the promotion of fascist eugenics policies, both in the crude form of the Harriman-sponsored Nazi "race hygiene," and the retooled, purportedly more "objective" and "scientific" version, now being propagated under the cover of the "human genome project" and the marriage of molecular biology with the doctrines of information theory and so-called "computer science." In fact, there has been no interruption in two centuries of British-centered efforts to use "biological theories" as a prime vehicle for propagating fascist doctrines, policies, and movements. The swindle of "artificial intelligence" and the now-booming pseudo-scientific discipline of "artificial life," amount to the same thing: the attempt to eliminate human cognition, to eliminate the concept of Man in the living image of God, and to propagate a bestial concept of society. . . .
