Re: Psychic Control of Physiological Parameters

The American soldier is better equipped to go to war than any soldier in any standing army. His military and physical training are equal to, or better than, any soldier of any other standing army. The U.S. military has kept pace with recent innovations in tactics and armaments, thus maintaining equity with potential combatants. Where do we turn to break this technological deadlock and bring about the defeat of enemy forces? In our empirical and technological age the sciences seem to have provided the answers in the past. But what of the future? Is there something we can provide our soldiers that will make them more likely to survive on the battlefield and thereby defeat our enemies.

I believe one area of potential; an area that warrants further investigation, is 'psychic power' (for lack of a better term). The concept has been ignored, laughed about and ridiculed as slight of hand. Yet it may be the difference between victory and defeat; all things considered equal. Could the concept be merely ahead of its time? I recently made the acquaintance of Mr. Guy L. Savelli - a martial arts Master, form the Cleveland area. His particular martial art from is called "Kun Tao Kung-Fu" which incorporated the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the student in his particular martial arts practice. I was skeptical, yet intrigued, by the numerous possibilities when applied to a battlefield scenario. I was asked by Mr. Savelli to simply monitor and observe a number of physiological parameters before, during and after the application of his 'psychic powers' on a caprine lab animal.

A cinder block laboratory was obtained which was separated into three rooms - each room separated by cinder block walls (fig I)

Because of lab restrictions, we could not harm the animal in any way whatsoever. Invasive monitoring of arterial blood pressure (ABP) was not implemented, Continuous electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring was applied utilizing a Tetronix portable monitor. The Caprine was quarantined for the 24 hours preceding the test and during that time was shave prepped for the ECG monitoring leads. The day of the test tincture of benzoin was applied to ensure lead contact and a conventional three-lead system was placed on the animal. Lead II was monitored throughout observation period.

The first 30 minutes of the test were used to establish the caprines' baseline heart rate, which was 54 beats per minute (BPM). Mr. Savelli was given the parameter of 40 (BPM) as the lowest being safe not to induce cardiac arrest. This time was also used for the observers to become familiar with the lab animal. Two qualified medical personnel observed the test. One stayed with myself and the other stayed with Mr. Savelli. Mr. Savelli stayed in the sitting or kneeling position throughout the test (as though he was thinking). Nothing was done that would have indicated anything unusual was happening. After establishing the baseline heart rate, Mr. Savelli randomly chose (without my knowledge or any communications) to either increase or decrease the experiment the caprines' heart rate slowed to 50 (BPM). (50 BPM or below is bradycardic for caprines). At the twenty minutes the caprine actually yawned, layed down and appeared to be sleeping. *The caprines' heart rate at this time was 43 (BPM). The caprines' heart rate stayed at 43 (BPM) for the remainder of the 30 minutes test period and then rose to his normal baseline heart rate of 54 (BPM) after concluding the test. The Caprine became one again active and milled about the room, having appeared not to have suffered any residual effects.

I realize no conclusive data can be drawn from such a small population, limited number of tests and the limited physiological parameters we were allowed to monitor. However, I believe the results obtained warrant further investigation. The possibilities for application could be special operations, and escape and evasion situations. The findings suggest a further need for in-depth clinical trials. Mr. Savelli changed the normal physiological parameters within the identified clinical restrictions in a very short time.

*Mr. Savelli stated that he induced a feeling of decreased oxygen intake in the caprine and this resulted in the caprine laying down and becoming somnolent.
