Subtle Energy, Subtle Force

An Introduction and Sources

At various levels, what has been called subtle energy and/or subtle force has been studied for millennia. Starting in the late 1800s some scientists began to look carefully at what the sages and teachers have been talking about and teaching for as long as humans have been around.

In just the latter half of the last century that has been there has been some very careful science done investigating what has been traditionally call "subtle energy" or "subtle force". On this page we will present links to a few of the papers that have come out of this effort. The goal here is to introduce some of the science that has been done and then suggest where more can be found. Also, there will be list of some of the individuals and organizations that are conducting very interesting work in this field, where they have been applying the principles of careful science, to the degree that such is possible, in a field where so many of the rules of action are just being learned and can seem to be different.

This page is an introduction. The linked pages have additional references, for those desiring further information.


Starting 30 years ago some scientists, in the then Soviet Union, have intensively studied what they call Torsion Fields. As long as the Soviet Union existed this study was kept secret. Now much of the work that was done then has been made available to the rest of the world. Here is one paper that presents an introduction to the work done.
            Theoretical Basics of Experimental Phenomena

Just recently ( March, 2012), Brendan D. Murphy wrote an article giving another history of the development of the work on torsion fields.
            Torsion: The Key to the Theory of Everything

For a decade William Tiller, PhD has been working in the subtle energy/field area. He is conducting lab experiments with 2 colleagues to expand the understanding of what he has named Psychoenergetic Science.

Here is a link to the paper Initial Comparisons Between the Russian Research on "The Nature of Torsion". This paper describes Tiller Model.

Maxwells Equations were developed in the nineteenth century. The equations can be seen to describe a transverse and a longitudinal wave aspect of electromagnetic radiation. (See 'electromagnetic' paragraph.)

The transverse waves are the type that we find in almost all the electrical and magnetic aspects of our society today - electric transmission of power by wire, radio and television, electric motors, and much more. The longitudinal waves are not as common. (They have also been called scalar waves.) It is these types of waves that were explored by Nicola Tesla in the early part of the twentieth century see; Meyl (third article in "Research Articles" section, though it may not be available) or Eckardt, and in the torsion work in the USSR, in the late twentieth century.

A closely related topic is "scalar waves". In the NASA report, "Advanced Energetics for Aeronautical Applications: Volume II" Scaler waves are discussed in 2 places. There is a short entry on page 42. There is considerably more discussion of scalar waves on pages 53 through 64.

There is a great deal of information gathered in the book by Dr Claude Swanson, "Life Force, the Scientific Basis". This book discusses many of the of types healing using subtle energies.

New Physics

In the last 200 hundred years, there have been a number of new physics models created that seem to answer some of the questions left unanswered by the "standard model". On the page, linked below, there are short introductions to several models. It is interesting to note that most of them really seem to have very similar basic structures involving toriodal fields, even though the ideas appear to have been developed with little or no knowledge of the other models. New physics models.


On the FMBR site itself there are several scientific papers and articles that may be of interest. Check here to see this work.


On this separate page are several lists (as links) of papers and study reports in the area of subtle energy/fields. There is also a list of of some of the words used as labels in this field further information sources.
