699. Dr Persinger has taken his research a stage further. He believes naturally occurring electro-magnetic fields might also be capable of generating this sensed presence. This explains, he argued, not just our sense of God but perhaps also other supernatural experiences too. (God & Religion & Brain & Magnetism & Electro-Magnetic Radiation) Horizon: God on the Brain, 2003
700. So Horizon decided to set Dr Persinger’s theory and machine the ultimate test. To give a religious experience to one of the world’s most strident atheists Professor Richard Dawkins. (God & Religion & Brain & Magnetism & Electro-Magnetic Radiation) ibid.
701. Despite the setback with Professor Dawkins, Dr Persinger’s research shone over a thousand human guinea-pigs has gone further than any other to establish a clear link between spiritual or religious experience and the temporal lobes of the human brain. It has put his research at the very cutting-edge of nuero-theology. (God & Religion & Brain & Magnetism & Spiritual & Electro-Magnetic Radiation) ibid.

48,802. Even the atom is a di-pole. (Magnetism & Electro-Magnetic Radiation) ibid.
48,823. Electro-magnetism not only explained the relationship between electricity and magnetism, it would go to explain the very nature of light. Of radio waves. Of X-rays. (Electricity & Magnetism & Electro-Magnetic Radiation) Michael Mosley, The Story of Science: Power, Proof & Passion

128,730. Telecom companies are currently scrambling to implement fifth-generation cellular network technology, dubbed 5G. (Telephone & Internet & Electro-Magnetic Radiation & Data) The Corbett Report, The 5G Dragnet, James Corbett online June 2019
128,731. The harmful effects of electro-magnetic radiation present in current mobile technologies will be amplified by orders of magnitude in the much more powerful and denser extremely high frequency radiation network that 5G relies on. (Telephone & Internet & Electro-Magnetic Radiation & Data) ibid.
128,732. Privacy and security would be next to impossible. (Telephone & Internet & Electro-Magnetic Radiation & Data) ibid.
128,733. Why is there such a headlong rush to connect this network? (Telephone & Internet & Electro-Magnetic Radiation & Data) ibid.
128,770. For the better part of a decade, two diametrically opposed sides — one that claims there is no scientific link between exposure to Wi-Fi signals and illness and another that says people suffer daily because of it — have battled on websites, in newspapers and in scientific journals. James Rubin of the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, doesn’t dispute that EHS sufferers are ill. ‘They have physical symptoms; the quality of life they have can be appalling sometimes; they’re in desperate need of help,’ he says. But his surveys of the science led him to believe exposure to electromagnetic rays is not to blame.
Others, including some professionals, disagree. ‘Ten years ago, I thought this was hokum,’ says Dr David Carpenter, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University of Albany in New York. ‘People have symptoms they want to blame on something, so they come to electromagnetic fields as the source.’ But that changed with the sheer number of people who came calling at his door, claiming their lives had been irreparably changed by electromagnetic fields. He’s now switched sides: He has a sympathetic ear and is banging the drum for those affected. EHS is real, Carpenter says, and it’s a problem. ‘The question in my mind is: How does one — in a rigorous scientific fashion — go about getting information that would be convincing to a skeptical scientific community?’ Newsweek magazine online article 26 June 2016 Chris Stokel-Walker, ‘Science Says Wi-Fi Allergies Are Fake — But People Are Still Sick’
128,774. What is your daily exposure to electro-magnetic fields? Should you be worried? Frontline: Currents of Fear, PBS 1995
128,775. Some people believe … the threat they see comes from electro-magnetic fields produced by more than two million miles of power lines that criss-cross the country. ibid.
