The International Institute of Life Energy invited Henk Kieft to introduce Quantum informed Agriculture to the 20 participants of their Summerschool 2017. Below you find the summary.
The added value of Quantum informed Agriculture to the Cycle of Life
At the one hand the challenges of modern society demand a shift in thinking in larger systems. At the other hand, development of knowledge and technology in practice is offering some very relevant contributions. The MEI-concept of substance (Mass-Energy-Information) is an example. This paper explores some of these new technologies in agriculture. One ‘family’ of emerging technologies is the application of ElectroMagnetics (EM) in food production. This can be seen as an expansion of Particle-thinking with its Energy content. Another ‘family’ of emerging technology is the exploration of mind and intuition as tools to ‘understand’ a soil, a plant, or an animal. Again a further expansion of the Particle/Mass + Energy components with Information.
Quantum informed Agriculture explores and develops farming technology from such an enlarged systems perspective M+E+I. Matter can express itself as Particle (with its Mass) or as Wave (with its inherent Energy). So this E is inherently part and parcel of Matter.
The presentation touches upon some theoretical backgrounds from electro-magnetic theory. quantum theory, systems approaches, chaos theory and neuro-electricity. The assumption is that ‘Life happens at the quantum border’, at the scale where the classical world of Newton meets the quantum world of Maxwell, Planck, Bohr, Einstein and others.
From the dozens of emerging techniques, the presentation explores two techniques more in depth. One E-technique based on waves, broadcasting protein music on crops or herds of animals. And one I-technique based on resonance between mind and life-in-matter.
E: Protein Music.
The quantum physicist and musician Joel Sternheimer, student of Louis de Broglie, got an internationally recognized patent on his ‘Method for epigenetic regulation of protein biosynthesis by scale resonance’. The French organisation Genodics explores and promotes it in practice.
The essence of the method is Sternheimers finding that musical signals play a role in the synthesis of protein. For all elements in the Periodic System he calculated the frequencies and applied these to the 20 aminoacids that together build all proteins in life processes. As every aminoacid emits its typical – but inaudible – sound, the sequence of aminoacids emits a series of sounds inducing the production of a protein: indeed a musical melody based on DNA. Broadcasting this specific protein-melody to that very crop or animal, strengthens the synthesis. For example in vineyards, the broadcasting of the specific grape-sound sequence the grapes get a 5-15% higher sugar content.
The key knowledge of Genodics consists in finding the relevant protein that influences the metabolism of a specific crop or insect or bacteria, and translating this into its specific melody. Effects of treatments include higher production of better quality, higher metabolism efficiency saving inputs, resistance to drought and to cold, prevention and cure of diseases and longer shelf life. You will find more information on this technique in this website via the tag ‘protein music’.
I: Intention and Intuition.
Quite a lot of farmers include intuitive knowledge in their decision making on farm management issues. Intention also ‘happens’ at the quantum border of the synapses in our brains. The presentation explores the mental attitude of an ostrich farmer and the Eco-Treaty approach of the Institute of Cooperative Biobalance. Both reporting relevant impacts on animal health and plant growth.
One hypothesis to explain the functioning of such intuitive connections is explored more in depth: the communication at short distance of some meters through the electro-magnetic coherence of waves emitted from and received by both the human being and the plant or animal.
Looking back, one could see that modern agriculture –as part of western scientific and industrial developments – has lost its ancient integrated worldview, and developed the narrow path of particle-thinking. The findings of emerging – or re-emerging ancient – practices suggest that a view of life in which M+E+I are integrated, is opening up and promising. The ancient farming orchestra plaid many instruments, modern agriculture plays a poor music with one or two instruments only, whereas Quantum informed Agriculture adds more and new instruments to the farming concert.
Modern agriculture could probably learn a lot from the energetic world view of surviving ancient cultures and from collaboration between the Medicine and Agriculture sectors.
