(NaturalNews) Psychiatrist Colin A. Ross says that people can shoot energy beams from their eyes, and claims he has published data supporting this hypothesis in the journal Anthropology of Consciousness
, in an article titled "The Electrophysiological Basis of Evil Eye Belief."
"We used our patent pending Electromagnetic Beam Detection System, which includes modified EEG neurofeedback equipment, to prove that the human eye emits an electromagnetic signal that can be measured scientifically," Ross said. "I hope that future experiments will determine why energy emitted from the eye is so strong and whether it can be harnessed through focused attention."
Although scientists once thought that humans saw by emitting beams from their eyes, they later determined that the aye actually absorbs and interprets radiation coming in from the outside world.
"It's not a matter of debate among scientists -- to shoot a beam of energy beam out of your eyes is seen as absolutely impossible," said Ross, a psychiatrist who specializes in dissociative disorders and post traumatic stress.
According to Ross, however, beams are actually emitted from the human eye, and they form the basis of beliefs such as the evil eye, the "chi" of Chinese medicine, and the "aura" of Western philosophy.
In 2008, Ross claimed he could use the beams coming from his eyes to activate a machine of his own design and make a computer tone. He demonstrated the ability for a blogger from the Dallas Observer
, who described the machine as "special goggles he's assembled using a blue Aqua Sphere swim mask, electrical wiring and, naturally, scraps of tin foil." Ross told the blogger that he planned to harness the technology to allow people to activate electronic devices remotely by looking at them.
Ross later admitted to The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe
, however, that the trial had been faked. The sound had been produced by a biofeedback machine responding in a well-established way to the blinking of his eyelids.
