Not the Doctor Phil on TV but Dr. Philip S Callahan.

I first heard about Phil Callahan in 2003. I sort of only half listened because the bloke talking with me about him was waxing on about towers of power and radio frequencies that improved the growth of plants. I have found over a number of decades that the things I ignore or don’t take the time to find out about are things that eventually come around to being on value to me. Many times I end up saying to myself that I need to listen when I am receiving new information, not just dismiss it if I think it is of no value.

The same thing has happened with Dr. Phil. After hearing about him, I made no effort to find out more about him. It has only taken 11 years, but I am finally doing something about it. Below is the blurb about him on Amazon. After reading more about him I can see that he has the credentials to make the claims he does so I need to investigate further.


About the Author  (excerpt from Amazon)

Dr. Philip S. Callahan is a philosopher as well as a top-grade scientist. An internationally famous entomologist and ornithologist, he has been responsible for breakthrough discoveries in both areas.He is also an explorer who has walked across mainland China and the Syrian Desert, observing the intricate ways of man and nature wherever he went.He entered the U.S. Army Air Force in 1942, and served two years in the European Theater of Operations during World War II. Hiking around the world after he war, he worked as a freelance photographer and writer. Later, he attended Fordham University and received his B.A. and M.S. degrees from the University of Arkansas and his Ph.D. from Kansas State University. He served as assistant professor of the Entomology Department at Louisiana State University and later joined the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Southern Grain Insects Research Laboratory as Project Leader for Insect Biophysics. He was also Professor of Entomology on the graduate faculty of the University of Georgia. In 1969 he transferred to USDA Insect Attractant and Behavior Laboratory at Gainesville, Florida. Callahan served as a full professor on the graduate faculty of the University of Florida, and on the staff of The Olive W. Garvey Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning, Inc. as an infrared systems and low energy consultant.His research involved the utilization of nonlinear far infrared radiation by biological systems and its applications to insect control and medicine. He has developed theories of insect communication based on the waveguide characteristics of insect spines and has postulated that such spines are thermoelectret-coated dielectric waveguide aerials with the ability to receive short wavelength IR and microwave frequencies. His work in biophysics might best be called studies in insect molecular bioelectronics.

He is the author of more than 100 scientific papers and numerous books, including: My Search for Traces of God; A Walk in the Sun; Nature’s Silent Music; Ancient Mysteries, Modern Visions; and Tuning in to Nature.


One of the favourite sayings for Dr. Philip Callahan is; “Don’t take my word for it, do the experiment and see for yourself.”

There is an experiment that he describes which I will do and put the results up here. I will be away for about three weeks and will undertake the experiment on return. I’m looking forward to it.

A wit’s comment

Rock dust

I like using basalt dust. You need to check the nutrients available from the closest quarry. You also need the finest particles. As for paramagnetism – is that magnetism in a wheelchair?
