Abstract:

The authors sought to determine whether electrical aura effects revealed under laboratory conditions also occur under natural conditions in an animals habitat. Their instruments successfully registered signals of the variable electrical fields of animals and plants under conditions where there were no screening chambers, provided the study area was at a sufficient distance from electrical industrial objects, electrical lines, populated areas, etc. Aurograms were registered in the natural environment of living subjects for 1 All kinds of flies, beetles, bees, moths, etc. Some types of mosquitoes, however, had a low intensity or none at all. 2 The tensed musculature of a persons arms, scratching one nail against another, objects thrown past the sensor pine cones, clods of dirt, heads of flowers the ticking of a watch near the sensor, and the friction of underwear against the skin and 3 Movement of the human body and arms in the atmospheric electrical field at a distance of 5-10 m from the probe in a forest meadow. The authors claim they have experimentally proven that aural fields of animals and plants exist under natural conditions and are not artifacts associated with the use of screened chambers under laboratory conditions. They have determined the role of the earths electrical landscape as the source of the aural field.
