BRAIN WAVE & THERMOGRAPHY OF MR. URI GELLER
DATA & ANALYSIS
Tokyo Denki University
Dept. of Electronics
Prof Yoshio Machi
DATA: Two patterns on the screen are the results from FFT analysis
of the brain wave of the frontal head. Right side brain on the
right, left side brain on the left.
The figure on the corner 00:07:58:65 is the duration of the experiment,
i.e. 7 minutes 58 seconds 65. Old data move up towards right.
The pattern on the left side shows the same figure. De, Theta,
Alpha, Beta are the types of waves measured. The frequency width
of each wave is: alpha wave 8-12 Hz, beta wave 12-35 Hz. At this
experiment, we did not put importance of delta wave and theta
The colour scale shows the strength of alpha and beta waves.
Blue means weak and pink means strong.
RESULTS & ANALYSIS:
Beta wave of the right side brain is mostly blue. It's usually
pink with ordinary people. This result means that Mr. Geller's
brain is usually inactive and relaxed.
Although similar result can be attained by Quigong instructors,
Japanese priests and other psychics when they concentrate, but
they also have strong beta wave under a normal circumstance just
like ordinary people.
We measured strong beta wave three times on both sides. At these
three moments, both sides of the brain acted strongly in unison.
Each duration is just about a couple of seconds which leads us
to analyse that tremendous energy was generated at those points.
Those are the times when Mr. Geller nodded. So it is reasonable
to think that Mr. Geller was reading my mind at those very moments.
I do not know how mechanism works yet, but if I measure my brain
wave and Mr. Geller's at the same time, I may be able to come
up with more desirable analysis. There are some green patterns
in the beta wave area in some other times. It does mean that the
brain is acting more of less but I have not been able to analyse
exactly what it means.
It is interesting that Mr. Geller's alpha wave is very stable
while he's reading mind whereas that of other psychics and Quigong
instructors shows some changes while they are concentrating. In
other words, when Quigong instructors and other psychics concentrate,
beta wave almost disappears and wave remains still strong (although
less strong than usual). Mr. Geller's alpha waves of both sides,
on the contrary, have very narrow amplitude before, during, and
after the crucial moments, hardly showing any changes.
We measured extremely low beta wave, it is safe to say that he
is very relaxed.
Compared to ordinary people's brain wave, Mr. Geller's has very
little amplitude. It is very interesting that he can activate
his brain when necessary in a second and read other people's mind.
DATA: The colours show the change of the temperature. Far left
is 30.0° C, far right is 36.4°C. The figure in the left
corner is the date and time when the experiment took place.
RESULT & ANALYSIS:
The experiment started at 16:47,14.1 - 16:53,27.3(pm 4 o'clock
47 minutes 14.1 seconds - pm 4 o'clock 53 minutes 27.3 seconds).
A is the initial point, and E is the last point. The wide yellow
line covering the eyes to the jaw shown in A is diminishing gradually
in B,C,D. The blue area over the cheeks in A is gradually getting
bigger in B,C,D. The red parts near the eyes are gradually fading
in B,C,D. It means that the blood circulation in the face had
become less active during mind reading therefore the temperature
of the face had dropped.
Nevertheless, the blood circulation around the eyes is still comparatively
active. The amount of blood flow in human head is scientifically
proven to be stable. So it is safe to say that the blood had gathered
to the points that needed energy for mind reading.
The results we had from the similar experiments with Quigong instructors,
Japanese priests or other psychics showed red patterns. Which
means that the temperature of their faces had risen. (although
it can't been observed with the naked eye). It is very interesting
that Mr. Geller had an opposite result.
The telepathy experiment was conducted under the following conditions;
There were 6 people in the laboratory; 2 engineers from the factory
that makes thermography (they both are graduates of Tokyo Denki
University), 2 students assistants, myself and Mr. Geller.
Under no circumstances, Mr. Geller could have seen my drawing
before the experiment was all over. Only after Mr. Geller drew
the image he received, my drawing was revealed.
