The Electro-Magnetic (E-M) Effects Project

By Richard Bonenfant, Ph.D.

 

Recently a number of researchers have focused their attention on electromagnetic phenomena reported by individuals who have undergone near-death experiences. [1, 2]

The purpose of the E-M Effects Project is to determine if abductees are subject to E-M effects similar to those reported by near-death experiencers. Evidence of such an association would suggest that certain highly emotional events can trigger increased neurological sensitivity to electromagnetic fields. Such a finding would be a very significant development to researchers in both the Abduction and NDE communities and could be used to develop strategies for further investigation.

The Electro-Magnetic (E-M) Effects Project is a study designed for individuals who recall having an alien abduction and who can testify to having anomalous interaction with electronic devices or fields following that event. Its intended purpose is to determine whether or not unusual electro-magnetic effects plague abductees and, if so, to collect data on the nature and strength of the E-M aftereffects.


The lead investigator in this study is Richard Bonenfant, a retired medical research scientist formerly associated with the New York State Department of Health. Participation is purely voluntary. All correspondence regarding the Project will be kept strictly anonymous. Data collected from participants will be filed under a randomly generated six digit code with the original key stored offsite in a secure location.


During the second phase, a follow up questionnaire may be sent to participants. In addition to demographic data, this instrument will attempt to determine commonalities in the E-M phenomenon among participating experiencers. Ongoing results will be periodically posted at The Alien Jigsaw’s Global ET Research website.


We appreciate in advance any interest and willingness to voluntarily participate in this endeavor.

Richard Bonenfant

Richard Bonenfant, Ph.D., is a retired research scientist and lecturer. His research career at Albany Medical Center Hospital and the New York State Department of Health was centered on the study of birth defects in newborn children. He most recently retired from the Veterans’ Hospital in Gainesville, Florida, and is credited with publishing several professional articles on near-death experiences.

He has advanced degrees in Anthropology and Psychology, and is dedicated to the investigation of phenomena that lie on the fringes of scientific understanding. Subjective phenomena include such things as near-death experiences, synesthesia, xenoglossia, savant syndrome and hyperthymestic syndrome or individuals with exceptional autobiographical memories. Objective phenomena include verifiable paranormal experiences, crop circles and strange mutilations of unknown origin. There are other unusual phenomena deserving of investigation which he occasionally delves into under appropriate circumstances. These ancillary phenomena include instances of foreign accent syndrome, cases of apparent reincarnation, and human abduction experiences.

Capacidades electromagnéticas adquiridas como consecuencia de experiencias cercanas a la muerte: Estudio preliminar introductorio a una investigación actual

Abstract


Reported near-death experiences (NDEs) have been associated with various extraordinary phenomena, including profound psychological, physiological, and spiritual aftereffects. One specific phenomenon involves electromagnetic aftereffects (EMEs) where technological and electrical equipment malfunctions for no apparent reason. This qualitative pilot study explored EMEs in those reporting NDEs. Ten NDErs were screened with the Near-Death Experience Scale (NDE Scale), and administered the Electromagnetic Effect Questionnaire (EMEQ) to assess EME depth and the Electromagnetic Phenomena Questionnaire (EPQ) to explore the phenomenological experience of EMEs. EME rates found among these NDErs (70%) were congruent with rates reported in previous studies. A preliminary analysis of a second study that is currently under way is also overviewed, highlighting that of 136 NDErs, 71% are reporting EMEs. While quantitative data have not been formally analyzed yet, three case studies are highlighted, and differences between NDErs with and without EMEs are explored.

 

[2] Near-Death Experiences and the Possibility of Disembodied Consciousness: Challenges to Prevailing Neurobiological and Psychosocial Theories

Cheryl Fracasso, Saybrook University, San Francisco, CA, USA

Harris Friedman, Walden University, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Abstract

Claims from those having near-death experiences (NDEs), as well as those sympathetic to such claims, challenge the prevailing assumption that consciousness is dependent on a functioning brain. Extant theories, both neurobiological and psychosocial, that attempt to explain NDEs are examined and found unable to adequately account for the full range of NDE reports, especially electromagnetic aftereffects and out-of-body experiences with veridical perception. As a result, many leading NDE researchers have proposed that a new model is needed to explain how consciousness could possibly exist independently of the brain, mainly relying on theories from quantum physics. Our paper critically evaluates a range of extant neurobiological and psychosocial theories of NDEs, as well as examines theories that might offer more promise in fully explaining NDEs, especially those using insights derived from quantum physics. We conclude that the “hard problem” of consciousness is not yet solved, but that NDEs provide an important avenue for exploring the relationship between consciousness and brain, as well as possibly understanding a disembodied concept of consciousness.
