Introduction to the Concept of Energy Fields
In the Living Energy Universe, Drs. Gary Schwartz and Linda Russek, Directors of the
Human Energy Systems Laboratory at The University of Arizona, stated “it is possible to
organize the entire universe in terms of nested levels of systems, from the micro to the macro.
Nested means that one level is inside another level.“ (1999, p.160). The concept of a system
requires that the components be connected energetically. Energy can be thought of as the
force that maintains each system and also enables it to emerge and evolve into a higher level
Research converging from many fields of investigation indicates that the body is a
complex energy system, rather than the mere clockwork machine of biological gears and
parts that is often espoused in conventional medicine. Examples of energy transmission
within the body are metabolic energy conversions of fats and sugars into ATP
(adenosine-tri-phosphate), bioelectrical energy triggered by charged ions which influence the
heart, nerves and brain, and biophotonic energy from untraviolet biophotons which are
located in the nucleus of cells. In a 1992 book by F. Popp et al. entitled Recent Advances in
Biophoton Research and Its Applications, the authors indicate that the low-level light known
as biophoton emission, a type of internally produced electro-magnetic radiation, is important
in understanding bioregulation, membrane transport, and gene expression.
The electromagnetic spectrum spans a broad range of frequencies and wavelengths and
living systems have evolved within the context of this energy spectrum.
