Understand the Science By David B. Farley, M.D.                                                            


As the Chief Medical Officer, I want to explain in a clear, honest, and accurate way how our products work. Unlike most newly developed products, we do not make any unsubstantiated claims or try to force scientific explanations where none exist. Of course, that doesn’t mean I can reveal any proprietary secrets, but I will be honest. From the beginning of scientific inquiry, scientists have sought to develop theories to explain what they observed in nature, and nowhere is that more true than in the area of health. Being born and raised in the USA, I have always been devoted to traditional Western medicine. Like most Americans I have been oblivious of other medical traditions. However, over the past 50 years, those who have paid attention to other medical traditions have broadly divided medicine into two main philosophies: Western medicine that focuses on disease states, biochemistry and drugs, and Eastern medicine that focuses on wellness, energy flow, and the harmony of mind, body, and nature.

As a practicing medical doctor trained in Western medicine at Harvard Medical School (Class of 1986), I would be the last to say that Western medicine has not developed powerful drugs that have positively changed the lives of millions of people. Just the development of penicillin and chloroquine has saved tens of millions of lives. But, I would give an unbalanced view if I did not acknowledge that we have also produced drugs whose risks far outweigh their benefits. Also, our focus on biochemistry has left the whole concept of physical and energy based medicine nearly completely untapped. These hold tremendous promise for promotion of health and wellness with a fraction of the risk of side effects in pharmaceuticals. That being said, let us look at the three pillars underlying 8ightplus technology: (1) Acupuncture, (2) Scalar Wave Technology, and (3) Storage and Transfer of Energy and Data. The results of combining these three technologies creates the 8ightplus family of products: a transdermal* acupuncture system that improves wellness in many ways.

*Transdermal means passing through the skin without penetrating the skin with needles or other devices.

The 3 pillars of 8ightplus Technology


Acupuncture is one of the main forms of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). This has been practiced as a medical art for over 3,500 years. Although hundreds of millions of people claim the beneficial effects of acupuncture, only in the past 30-40 years has Western science given it even a jaundiced look. Most traditional folk medicines have vanished as Western medicine entered other civilizations. Not so with TCM. On the contrary, TCM (acupuncture in particular) has gradually moved from complete rejection by Western science, to being acknowledged as possibly beneficial, to acceptance of clear benefits. It is now making its way onto the main stage of inquiry at the top research institutions in the world.

The traditional theory from Chinese medicine of how acupuncture works is based on the flow of energy (Qi) through energy channels in the body (meridians). Wellness can be compromised when the flow of this energy is altered or impeded by various causes. Improved energy flow, and thus wellness, can be achieved through stimulation of various acupoints that have been determined by thousands of years of trial and error. However, no one has proven this is how acupuncture actually works. One challenge in determining the mechanics of acupuncture through Western science has been the focus of Western medicine on biochemistry (I am speaking as a trained biochemist). Even the obviously electrical systems in the body, such as the heart and the nervous system, are studied from a biochemical standpoint in Western medicine. There is an embarrassing paucity of inquiry into the classical physical aspects of biology. These include quantum mechanics, non-chemical energy transfer, electromagnetic fields, and the effects of sub atomic particle spin on such things as cellular energy, cell-to-cell communication, and the interaction between organisms and their environment. Only recently have any of these things received even rudimentary attention from the Western scientific community. However, that is changing. As Dr. Mehmet Oz stated on the Oprah TV show in 2007, "We begin to realize that the next big frontier ... in medicine is energy medicine." I cannot promise that proof of the mechanism of action in acupuncture will be forthcoming in the near future, but we can hope that greater attention to the physics of biology will bring us closer.

Despite not understanding the exact mechanism of action of acupuncture, Western medicine has shown in well-designed studies that acupuncture does work. There are now hundreds of studies from top Western research institutions that are published in the most prestigious peer reviewed journals showing the beneficial effects of acupuncture*. Now (here comes the honesty again) that doesn’t mean that all benefits of acupuncture will not be hotly debated amongst Western physicians for years to come. For heaven’s sake, just the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy in menopausal women have been studied for decades. Hundreds of studies involving hundreds of thousands of patients cannot facilitate agreement on the subject and it is still debated heatedly amongst different scientific camps. How can we expect acupuncture to escape controversy? Nevertheless, acupuncture continues to creep into mainstream Western medicine, and I am confident that the trend will not only continue but accelerate. Even my alma mater, Harvard Medical School, now offers continuing medical education courses in acupuncture (http://cme.hms.harvard.edu/cmeups/pdf/00302317.pdf). Wow, have things changed!

Scalar Wave Technology

In science in general, and physics in particular, there are many theorists and many tinkerers. Those who focus on advancement of scientific and mathematical theory I consider to be theorists, such as Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, Stephen Hawking, and Makoto Kobayashi. Those who play with theories to produce practical applications I consider to be tinkerers, such as Karl Benz, Thomas Edison, the Wright Brothers, Henry Sampson, and Bill Gates. There is a much smaller group of iconic individuals that can be considered theoretical tinkerers. These are individuals who advance theory, then apply it to practical application. I put individuals such as Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, Nicola Tesla, and Konstantin Meyl into this category. These are brilliant individuals who not only want to know how and why, but also want to know what they can do with that knowledge in the real world.

For our purpose, Nicola Tesla is key. Tesla not only helped advance theoretical aspects of physics, but put such theories into practice by inventing alternating electric current, fluorescent light bulbs, the radio, the induction motor, etc., which have dramatically changed our lives. As with all theoretical physicists, not all of Tesla’s theories were accepted and some of them were soundly refuted in scientific studies. However, several of his theories, including longitudinal scalar waves and wireless transmission of energy were never disproven, but nevertheless abandoned by mainstream physicists.

Those who envision the fundamental laws of physics have been worked out and are completely agreed upon have either never seriously studied the subject or have studied in a bubble. Even bedrock theories such as quantum mechanics, general and special relativity, and the speed of light as the absolute limitation on velocity have various unanswered aspects and are debated in the physics community. Scientists often dismiss theories that potentially contradict mainstream ideas, sometimes in a hostile manner. Such has been the case with Tesla’s theories of longitudinal scalar waves and the wireless propagation of energy. For years these ideas were buried in the great abyss of discarded scientific theories.

There is one small problem for those who never want these ideas brought back to light. A small group of independent-minded, maverick physicists started performing experiments that confirm predictions of Tesla’s most audacious theory: the wireless transmission of electricity via longitudinal scalar waves. Even at this time, after hundreds of amateur scientists demonstrated the ability to transmit electricity wirelessly, using Tesla coils and by following Tesla’s theory, many mainstream physicists are quick to call it all hogwash. They cannot explain how receivers that have no physical connection with transmitters, or any other power source, are generating electricity. For some reason, these concepts are beneath their consideration.

Nearly 20 years ago, a brilliant young engineer and physicist, Konstantin Meyl, became intrigued by demonstrations of these "rogue scientists" and started looking for a theoretical explanation for Tesla’s predictions. Professor Meyl is currently teaching and doing research at the University of Applied Sciences in Furtwangen, Germany (just outside of Freiburg). Professor Meyl’s initial work was dedicated to the three-dimensional calculation of eddy currents. Looking at Tesla’s theories, scalar waves in particular, Meyl looked for a theoretical explanation. In this pursuit, he believes he has discovered a fundamental flaw in Maxwell’s equations. By correcting these equations and combining them with Faradays law of induction, Professor Meyl developed a unified theory of electromagnetism. His theory postulates the existence of electric vortices and potential vortices propagating energy by longitudinal scalar waves. The mainstream physics community is quick to call this pseudoscience. Again, the problem with ignoring Professor Meyl’s work is that his theory ends up accurately predicting what Tesla postulated. Likewise, hundreds of people are independently producing the predicted results, both with electricity and radio waves. The details of Professor Meyl’s work is beyond the scope of this website, but for those interested in his research, please go to his website: http://www.meyl.eu/go/index.php?dir=10_Home&page=1&sublevel=0.

There are very significant differences in the properties of transverse and longitudinal waves in general, but particularly scalar waves produced by Tesla coils. A transverse wave’s amplitude fluctuates at a 90° angle to the direction of propagation of the wave. A longitudinal wave’s amplitude is perpendicular with the direction of propagation. A Tesla scalar wave is more like a vibration of electric potential in the direction of propagation of the wave. (Figure 1)

Figure 1

Likewise, the electric and magnetic fields of a transverse wave are also at 90° angles from the direction of propagation, which both oscillate perpendicularly to each other as well as to the direction of energy transfer. (Figure 2)

Figure 2

In contrast, the electromagnetic field generated by scalar waves produced between Tesla coils is more similar to a classic dipole magnetic field, but more extensive and pervasive as the magnetic field is not only generated between the transmitter and the receiver, but additional fields are also generated between the antennas and the ground. (Figure 3)

Figure 3

Some of the unique characteristics and properties of Tesla scalar waves are as follows:

1. They penetrate solid objects, including Faraday Cages

2. They transmit data, as well as energy

3. The energy in the wave increases over the course of transmission

4. Transmitters and receivers communicate with each other, as they are in resonance

All of the above properties have been demonstrated in experimental settings. Property #2 and #4 are crucial for 8ightplus products. Through a proprietary process founded in the physics proposed by Professor Meyl, and the production of Tesla scalar waves, we are able to program the 8ightplus products. This is done by producing scalar waves in harmony (resonance) with the energy and data chosen to charge our products. For example, our Action Discs are designed to increase energy and stamina, and to improve muscle recovery. (Click here to see the clinical study that confirms the effectiveness of this formula) This is done by using a formula based on input from several experts in metabolic physiology. Scalar waves are put in resonance with this formula, then passed through it to the holographic discs we program. Scalar waves are able to pick up both an energy and a data blueprint from the formula and charge it into the disc. The formulas are different for our various discs (again, based on collaboration with experts in corresponding fields), but the process of charging with harmonic scalar waves is the same for all varieties. We constantly work on improving formulas, but it is this charging process that makes 8ightplus products different.

So how does a scalar wave pick up the bioactive data and energy from the formula and impregnate it into the holographic disc? Well, to be honest, we don’t exactly know. We know that the direction of electron spin is important in biological systems. That is one reason why only one mirror image of a stereoisomer of any biological molecule is active and the other stereoisomer is inactive. We determined that the direction of electron spin in charging our holographic discs is critical to their effectiveness. As a result, the leading theory is that the scalar wave is able to take an imprint of the energy signal from the substances in our various formulas and then charge the hologram with that data. Currently, experiments are being designed by Professor Meyl to elucidate the precise mechanism of this process. Some of these studies involve the photogenic and magnetic resonance of various biologicals, including DNA. We know that the data is getting into the discs because of physiologic effects seen when the discs are applied.

Since scalar waves are composed of electric potentials, it has also been theorized that they can propagate at speeds faster than the speed of light. Some individuals feel this characteristic is already proven, but I have not seen data to completely convince me yet, but theoretically, it is a possibility. From a theoretical standpoint, there should be no limit to the velocity of propagation.

The Storage and Transfer of Energy and Data

The entire concept of 8ightplus is the ability to stimulate acupoints with energy and data transdermally. In order to do this, a means to store and transfer energy and data is necessary. Holographic technology has shown the ability to store the largest amount of data in the smallest space. CD’s were replaced by DVD’s, which have been replaced by Blu-ray Discs™. The next generation will be Holographic Versatile Discs (HVD’s) that are able to store several terabytes of data on one 10 cm disc. There are many substances shown to be programmable with scalar waves, but to our knowledge, the holographic disc is clearly able to store the most data in the smallest space, making it ideal for 8ightplus technology.

There have been many claims made about holographic discs. As a result, there are misunderstandings regarding their role. Some companies claim that the holographic disc itself is involved in the process of wellness enhancement. At 8ightplus, we do not ascribe any magical or mysterious properties to holographic discs. We have no reason to believe that they do anything more than act as a storage and transfer device. It is the unique way 8ightplus is able to charge the holographic discs with energy and data from the Tesla scalar waves that separates our products from any product that is not a part of the 8ight family of companies.

In the previous section, I described how we charge the holographic discs. Just like a DVD can be encoded with data by a laser, our holographic discs are encoded with data. Unlike a laser, a transverse electromagnetic wave, the harmonic Tesla scalar wave with its more pervasive magnetic field and sensitivity to direction of electron spin, is able to extract data from biologicals and encode that data onto the disc.

So, how does the data and energy get transferred through the skin to stimulate an acupoint and energize a meridian when a disc is properly placed? Again, we don’t know for sure. I told you this website would be honest. We know that data is transferred based on the physiological effects that we see in individuals when the discs are applied. (See section on clinical studies) However, the precise mechanism of how data gets transferred is debated amongst the scientists we work with. One theory is that the holographic disc acts as a capacitor that discharges infinitesimally small, but clinically significant, electrical signals in response to subtle temperature differences between the two sides of the disc. Another theory is that the disc acts as a Tesla antenna and emits scalar waves at the acupoint. Yet another theory holds that the holographic disc is able to capture light, then emit photons with the proper resonant spin to send a signal down the meridian. We are in the process of setting up experiments to determine what actually occurs. In the meantime, we see the physiological effects in clinical studies. And, hundreds of thousands of individuals are experiencing health benefits without any side effects.

One of the first things you learn in medical school is primum non nocere: first do no harm. It is presumed that this originated from the Hippocratic Oath, which states, "to abstain from doing harm". However, this noble saying is quickly put on the back burner as the actual training that you receive in medical school encourages physicians to "try to do something". It is the exceptional physician that has the insight and courage to follow the admonition of first doing no harm. It is something that I have wrestled with for nearly 30 years. So now, as a medical doctor trained in Western medicine and biochemistry, I am thrilled to be able to endorse a product in which I can be completely confident that I will "first do no harm", yet the potential to do great good is immense. 8ightplus combines the most ancient form of medicine with cutting edge technology based on the theoretical physics of Nicola Tesla. In that sense, I suppose our scientific collaborative team is also a theoretical tinkerer with the intent of providing great benefits to people the world over. Welcome to the 8ightplus family of health enhancing products.
