The Substance of Life
and Foundations of Consciousness


the literature review might start, historically, with Frolich
Fröhlich Systems in Cellular Physiology
for a discussion Frohlich Systems see Frohlich Systems, below

I have discussed Emilio del Giudice's work in A discussion of the mechanism of "ultradilution" / homeopathic "potentisation": Some Key Points, in which see "The ability of water to carry complex signals: the work of Emilio del Giudice oscillating dipoles and "quantum coherent domains" on page 4 and Appendix 1:Emelio del Giudice
Not discussed in those accounts is Del Giudice et al 3013 Coherent structures in liquid water close to hydrophilic surfaces: Journal of Physics: Conference Series 442 012028 wherein we learn ...

Pollack's Exclusion Zone water is discussed by Ho, see below, and you can visit Pollack at Pollack Laboratory

Note: del Giudice's work (over the decades) with Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) in liquids (water) is theoretical, he believes that Pollack's "exclusion zone" (EZ) interfacial water (which have been observed) are an example if his Quantum Coherent Domains (CD). Apparently Pollack believes in a different mechanism for the phenomenon.

for a current overview of the field one might consult Ho
Quantum Coherent Water and Life
In Ho we learn that second harmonic generation in seen in collagen!



Frohlich Systems: Frohlich was a starting point for the study of dipole oscillation. The work was first published in 1968. He worked with miscrotubules (hence the continued interest in vibration in microtubules). One important feature to note is that Frohlich's system was "pumped" - was driven by metabolic energies.
