Reading an extract of the article
Preliminary Research report of Elf magnetic fields and EEG entrainment
by Dr Robert C. Beck
(at Bio-Medical Research Ass, Los Angeles, CA, March 1978)
, I recalled an unusual
scientific investigation done by some Belgian fellow whose name escapes me.
He checked for correllations between the time of birth for those who came first in sports
contests (ie those supposedly endowed with more or less of the elusive quality known as
winner instinct) on one hand and for unusual relative positions of heavenly bodies
at the time of their birth on the other.
He found that indeed there was such a correllation.
He explained it by suggesting that people qualifying as winners would have some kind of
hightened sensitivity for weak changes of gravity such as those that accompany certain unusual
configurations of the planets. And that this kind of hightened sensitivity would increase the
probability that the baby would pop out in conjunction with slight changes of gravity
occurring for such planetary configurations.
At first his results were received favorably but soon they were rejected by the main stream of
scientists whose oppinions were essential for his acceptance.
Or so I remember it. Anyway in Beck's article, I am reminded of the athmospheric resonances
at frequencies near the human brain rythms and it is suggested that
the gravity vectors of the planets has an influence on the resonance frequencies.
Beck also writes ..there is welldocumented correllation between these geophysical
phenomena and periods of political unrest, mood alteration and health cycles
In the 1980s I read an article in the swedish daily newspaper Sydsvenska dagbladet
by the now late professor David Ingvar, the brain researcher, whom I much respect. He complained about astrology and
was worried about the fact that this irrational type of phenomenon wouldn't go away and that
people would beleive in the stuff. But just like so many others who have done the same previously
he didn't argue scientifically. Not really. He didnt formulate the case clearly, talking about
statistically significant correllations which, in essence, is what science is all about.
No matter how strange they may seem.
