Mind Boggling 25 Aug. 2013
By Falconer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book had two reviewers before me, one is unintelligible and the other admits that they haven't read the book. I have read it and it's implications are mind boggling. Usually books that deal with related subjects are written by crack-pots and people who don't fully understand the science they write about. Professor Burr was E. K. Hunt Professor of Anatomy at Yale University School of Medicine so he was as main stream as you can get. And, you can rest assured that he understood the science and implications behind his research.

Briefly speaking Dr. Burr discovered that every living thing generates an electro-dynamic field that serves as a matrix directing it's growth. He called these living fields "L-fields". The L-field maintains the arrangement of whatever material is within it, no matter how often that material changes. L-fields determine the shape, and are determined by the body generating them.

Dr. Burr wrote: "The following theory may then be formulated. The pattern or organization of any biological system is established by a complex electro-dynamic field which is in part determined by it's atomic physio-chemical components and which in part determines the behavior and orientation of those components. This field is electrical in the physical sense and by it's properties relates the entities of the biological system in a characteristic pattern and is itself, in part,a result of the existence of those entities. It determines and is determined by the components.

More than establishing pattern, it must maintain pattern in the midst of a physio-chemical flux. Therefore, it must regulate and control living things. It must be the mechanism, the outcome of whose activity is wholeness, organization, and continuity."

Dr. Burr found that a study of L-fields could predict growth and dis-ease in a body. He worked with, what some call, "the energy body" to predict the growth and disease of the physical body. This means we are susceptible to the ebb and flow of electromagnetic fields in the rest of the universe. This was discovered by a main-stream scientist!! Since him not many main-stream scientists have touched this research even though it's implications could completely change our world view!

Usually one has to read a book about, what the Chinese call 'Chi'; the Japanese 'Ki' and the Indians 'Prana', to get a taste of where Dr. Burrs research can take us. Unfortunately, such works usually contain so much pseudo-science and Eastern philosophy that one easily gets lost in it.

If you want the real science behind all Dr. Burrs book. It will boggle your mind!!

a classic from an expert in the field 27 Nov. 2003
By bored99 - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have not yet read this book, but in the absence of any other reviews, I should point out that it is a classic frequently referred to in many other books on energy medicine. Burr was a professor at Yale who did experiments in the 1970s and was able to detect electrical fields around plants and animals, which he called the "l-field" or "life field." This book appears to be a summary of his findings and their implications, written for the lay person, followed by the technical results of his experiments for those who may wish to read his methodology for himself and possibly repeat it.

Amazing science 27 Oct. 2009
By Jitka N. Ligwo - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is well known what the book is about. But I have nowhere find so a extraordinary declaration of scientific priciples.
Not easy to make clear to anyone that what counts is to help. Man as complex system will never response in the same way as an other.
