Deep Inelastic Neutron Scattering provides a means of directly and accurately measuring the momentum distribution of protons in water, which is determined primarily by the protons ground state wavefunction. We find that in water confined on scales of 20A, this wave function responds to the details of the confinement, corresponds to a strongly anharmonic local potential, shows evidence in some cases of coherent delocalization in double wells, and involves changes in zero point kinetic energy of…

Deep into the Water: Exploring the Hydro-Electromagnetic and Quantum-Electrodynamic Properties of Interfacial Water in Living Systems
Normal water structures are maintained largely by interactions with biomacromolecular surfaces and weak electromagnetic fields, which enable extended networks for electron and proton conductivity.
The Present Anomalous Testing of Water Purity: Setting a New Standard for the Future in Producing Nanometer-Sized Metals or Better Still, What Can Water Tell Us About Itself?
For a number of years my activities have included: determining exactly how to produce nanometer sized silver clusters in an aqueous medium using physics and photonic light at 420 nm. This wavelength
FUTURE POSSIBLE ENERGY/PARADIGM REVOLUTIONS FROM ULTRA-COLD MATTER AND NANOSCIENCE DISCOVERIES: HISTORICAL CONTEXT OF CURRENT RESEARCH AND OVERVIEW OF DEVELOPING TRENDS
In the last three decades, the confluence of two streams of research have resulted in some of the most heretofore unknown innovative, energy-transformative and potential paradigm-shifting
Terahertz vibrational properties of water nanoclusters relevant to biology
TLDR
In biological microtubules, confined water-cluster THz vibrations may induce their “quantum coherence” communicated by Jahn–Teller phonons via coupling of the THz electromagnetic field to the water clusters’ large electric dipole moments.
Consciousness in the Universe: Neuroscience, Quantum Space-Time Geometry and Orch OR Theory
TLDR
The proposed Orch OR concluded that consciousness plays an intrinsic role in the universe and suggests a connection between brain biomolecular processes and fine-scale structure of the universe.
Consciousness In The Universe
TLDR
The proposed Orch OR suggests that there is a connection between the brain's biomolecular processes and the basic structure of the universe, and it is concluded that consciousness plays an intrinsic role in the universe.
The Complex Quantum-State of Consciousness
We introduce a series of new energy sources SU(6), SU(12), SU(24),..........∞. We consider an earlier stages of quantum physics of the super unified group SU(11) which created two distinct
Consciousness in the universe: a review of the 'Orch OR' theory.
How quantum brain biology can rescue conscious free will
TLDR
Orch OR can account for real-time conscious causal agency, avoiding the need for consciousness to be seen as epiphenomenal illusion, and potentially avoiding algorithmic determinism.
Extra-low-frequency magnetic fields alter cancer cells through metabolic restriction
TLDR
The biological effects of MFs are connected to an alteration in the structure of water that impedes the flux of protons in ATPS channels, which may be environmentally important, in view of the central roles played in human physiology by ATPS and AMPK, particularly in their links to diabetes, cancer and longevity.
