What Is Psychotronics?

By Beverly Rubik, Ph.D. –

How can we direct our intentions to make a nourishing change—to help sick animals or persons, or improve agricultural crop yields? Our minds are very powerful, but most of us are not using our full capabilities to manifest positive effects in the world. The United States Psychotronics Association (USPA) is here to help. We are a not-for-profit organization for education and research on the frontiers of science exploring consciousness, energy and practical applications in the physical realm.

Originally psychotronics referred to the mind (psycho) operating devices (tron) with thought. This term came from parapsychology in the 1960s in Czechoslovakia. The early Psychotronics researchers conceived of and built psychotronic generators – sacred geometrical forms composed of pyramids and cones along with crystals, copper coils and other materials. These devices were operator dependent – having various effects depending upon the operator, and demonstrated positive effects on people –animals, plants and processes.

Today our interests are more broadly based. The USPA investigates and applies science and technology to interactions of mind, matter, spirit, consciousness and the underlying forces of life and nature.  Psychotronics challenges the dominant scientific worldview because it deals with the power of consciousness to interact directly with the physical world, which is not considered in mainstream science. However, numerous lines of scientific and other evidence point to severe limitations of the dominant paradigm, which holds that consciousness is only a passive observer. We are among those mavericks shaping the new worldview in which consciousness plays an active role in generating physical reality.

Who are we? Some USPA members are frontier scientists conducting research on the effects of intention and subtle energy healing on systems such as structured water, plant growth and the integrity of DNA. We are also concerned about the impact of electromagnetic pollution from the proliferation of wireless devices in our environment and how to protect ourselves.  Other members are practitioners and teachers of radionics, using directed intention to assess and improve the well-being of living systems through the use of radionics devices, pendulums and dowsing rods. Others practice energy therapies ranging from hands-on healing to use of sound and light therapies, homeopathy, Traditional Eastern medicine and other complementary modalities. Some members are skilled intuitives who can assess subtle energy directly. Still, others are exploring psychotronics for personal growth and evolution. Our membership is quite diverse, and we are an open-minded community of individuals focused on expanding our understanding of nature, consciousness and the full human potential.

One main focus is the existence of a cosmic energy or bioenergy, also called qi in Traditional Eastern medicine and prana in Ayurveda—associated with the biofield or life force.  Energy may be mobilized with directed intention, which corresponds to the principle of ancient Eastern philosophy, “Where mind goes, the qi flows.”  Psychotronics devices may serve as resonators or conduits of a cosmic energy affecting living systems at a physical level. The biofield, the energy field of each organism, is also fundamental.

Is this cosmic energy an aspect of science that has somehow been overlooked, or a new form of energy? We are taking a deeper look at the science of Nikola Tesla, among other pioneering scientists, who have been largely ignored. We are also revisiting the “aether” in physics that was displaced by a materialistic worldview but may actually be the quintessence underlying physical reality, and the etheric body in radionics, to expand the scientific perspective.

Dr. Beverly Rubik earned her doctorate in biophysics at the University of California at Berkeley. She is renowned for her research on the biofield, water and energy healing.  She is the president and founder of the Institute for Frontier Science in Oakland, California; a professor at Energy Medicine University; an author of over 90 papers and two books; and the president of the US Psychotronics Association.
