THE ACTS OF CREATION:
The following quote is a review I found on Amazon.com for a book I have only read about but seems to confirm many other things. The book is written by a former Chair of Material Sciences at Stanford and I think it fits work of Dr. Don Robins as well as other Intelligent Design researchers we have discussed.

In striking contrast with many books focused on next-generation physics, mathematics, biology, psychology, or medicine, Conscious Acts of Creation combines a brilliant theoretical model with several rigorous experiments that explore influence of human intention on physical reality - in living as well as inanimate systems. It is in these convincing demonstrations that principle "as above, so below" comes to life. Even more profoundly, book establishes that repetition of experiments in given locales can dramatically increase power of locales to reproduce results - with some locales retaining their conditioning or "charge" for more than a year! These findings lend plausibility to that which mystics know as "sacred space."
A postulated theoretical model provides a launch point for interpreting experimental results. Its major cornerstone is an eight-dimensional biconformal base space with two four-dimensional, Fourier transform related subspaces. One subspace corresponds to our everyday world, whereas other subspace is a reciprocal or inverse "etheric" space - roughly analogous to k-space but with additional postulated properties including superluminal "velocities" (presumably in inverse units) and interchanged roles of electricity and magnetism. The model incorporates nonlocality, a scientific principle that may someday prove to be underpinning for phenomena such as parapsychology and distant healing. Furthermore, authors note similarities between their model and models proposed by other scientists, some highly prominent. Granted, model becomes more speculative when it associates even higher dimensionalities with emotion, mind, and spirit. Even then, however, it remains consistent with various esoteric teachings, and it may yet provide empowering mechanism for manifestation of intention (where two subspaces, in some ways mutually symmetric, appear to play asymmetric roles) and in otherwise connecting science with spirit. Readers who disagree with postulated model will nonetheless benefit from authors' brilliant insights.
Mysticism aside, postulated "mind over matter" mechanisms include a possible role for variation in atomic and molecular ground state energies. The observed space conditioning is discussed in context of gauge symmetries. Rounding out model are insightful discussions of augmented electromagnetism (which authors associate with Qi), inner self-management techniques such as Qi Gong and Yoga, and even existence of two phases of liquid water. In Chapters 9 and 10, authors become futurists as they suggest possible implications of reciprocal space engineering for medicine, pharmacology, communications, and manufacturing.
On experimental side, authors set example in thoroughness and scientific rigor, although in-depth discussion of protocols as well as order of topics may impact book's readability. A mitigating factor is brilliant introduction to gauge theory and elucidation of several other topics including self-sustained oscillations, crystallography, and reciprocal space. In fact, book is a mini physics course that presents various principles of electromagnetism, thermodynamics, solid-state physics, and quantum mechanics in a readable and understandable way. Also included is a brilliant discussion of enzymes, coenzymes and electron transport chain as they relate to experiments.
Scientists, healers, and others who investigate or work with subtle energies will appreciate authors' insights on repeatability of experimental results. In mainstream scientific community, replication of results is a test for credibility; yet consistent results in healing, dowsing, remote viewing, and ESP are often elusive. Armed with successful demonstrations of space conditioning, authors shed new light on this longstanding issue - although they discuss other factors, both geocosmic and human, that can also impact repeatability of results.
