A historical summary is presented of the published and unpublished measurements of the physical changes associated with Sean Harribance while he accurately discerned recondite information about others. Reports of his subjective experiences as well as the quantitative electroencephalographic (QEEG), sLORETA, SPECT, and neuropsychological data support the occurrence of measurable and specific out-of-body like states that are strongly correlated with independent ratings of his accuracy of people…

Enhancement of Theta and Gamma Activity Power Within Fixed Sections of Human Brains Stimulated by Sean Harribance's Electroencephalographic Configuration: Is He Equivalent to a "Universal Donor" for Entanglement?
TLDR
Spectral analyses obtained by adjacent needle sensors indicated that different components of the Harribance Configuration (HC), particularly temporal (T4), and centro-parietal (C4) regions elicited enhanced spectral power within the grey relative to white matter for the theta (4-7.5 Hz) band while only the HC component from the right temporal ( t4) elicitedEnhanced power withinthe gamma (40Hz) band for both grey and white matter.

Theoretical and Experimental Evidence of Macroscopic Entanglement Between Human Brain Activity and Photon Emissions: Implications for Quantum Consciousness and Future Applications
Entanglement has been described as excess correlation between separated parts of a quantum system that may exceed the boundaries of light velocity across space and time. The concept of macroscopic

Human Biofield Therapy and the Growth of Mouse Lung Carcinoma
TLDR
Exposure to purported biofields from a human is capable of suppressing tumor growth, which might be in part mediated through modification of the tumor microenvironment, immune function, and anti-inflammatory activity in the authors' mouse lung tumor model.
Human Biofield Therapy Modulates Tumor Microenvironment and Cancer Stemness in Mouse Lung Carcinoma
TLDR
Exposure to purported biofields from a human is capable of enhancing cancer cell death, in part mediated through modification of the tumor microenvironment and stemness of tumor cells in mouse Lewis lung carcinoma model.

NEUROBEHAVIORAL AND NEUROMETABOLIC (SPECT) CORRELATES OF PARANORMAL INFORMATION: INVOLVEMENT OF THE RIGHT HEMISPHERE AND ITS SENSITIVITY TO WEAK COMPLEX MAGNETIC FIELDS
TLDR
The results suggest that the phenomena attributed to paranormal or extrasensory processes are correlated quantitatively with morphological and functional anomalies involving the right parietotemporal cortices (or its thalamic inputs) and the hippocampal formation.
Experimental Elicitation of an Out of Body Experience and Concomitant Cross-Hemispheric Electroencephalographic Coherence
Brief exposure to a counterclockwise global externally applied magnetic field generated from an array of 64 solenoids designed to affect the cerebral fields associated with the left and right
Quantitative Discrepancy in Cerebral Hemispheric Temperature Associated with "Two Consciousnesses" is Predicted by NeuroQuantum Relations
NeuroQuantological principles predict that equations applicable within the microcosmic world should also be valid within macroscopic brain space. We tested the hypothesis that the human brain exists
Out-of-body experience and autoscopy of neurological origin.
TLDR
It is argued that both disintegrations (personal; personal-extrapersonal) are necessary for the occurrence of OBE and AS, and that they are due to a paroxysmal cerebral dysfunction of the TPJ in a state of partially and briefly impaired consciousness.
Discrete shifts within the theta band between the frontal and parietal regions of the right hemisphere and the experiences of a sensed presence.
TLDR
Quantitative monopolar electroencephalographic measurements for each of the four lobes of the two hemispheres found that intensity of the sensed presence was significantly correlated with increased power within only the theta range over the right parietal and frontal lobes.

TLDR
Results suggest that a right hemispheric network of temporal, together with posterior, cingulate, and prefrontal, areas is engaged in the ecphory of affect-laden autobiographical information.
Out-of-Body-Like Experiences are More Probable in People with Elevated Complex Partial Epileptic-Like Signs during Periods of Enhanced Geomagnetic Activity: A Nonlinear Effect
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the individuals who exhibited the greatest proportion of complex partial epileptic-like signs also reported the most intense experiences of detachment from the body; however, these occurred primarily when the geomagnetic activity on the day of the experiment exceeded about 15 nT but was less than about 45 nT.
EXPERIMENTAL FACILITATION OF THE SENSED PRESENCE IS PREDICTED BY THE SPECIFIC PATTERNS OF THE APPLIED MAGNETIC FIELDS, NOT BY SUGGESTIBILITY: RE-ANALYSES OF 19 EXPERIMENTS
TLDR
Re-analyses with additional data for 407 subjects showed that the magnetic configurations, not the subjects' exotic beliefs or suggestibility, were responsible for the experimental facilitation of sensing a presence.
