Controversies with radionics and its operationTécnico de Soporte
Radionics has always been one of the most controversial alternative therapies. Its detractors claim that its mechanism of action is not scientifically reasonable and, therefore, its operation can be described as “magical” and even “quackery”.
The discoverer of the so-called radionics was a brilliant Dr. Albert Abrams, who risked his prestige when he discovered that through tissue samples from his patients, connections between cells could be established at a distance. In this way, by acting on a part of these cells, there were measurable repercussions on a patient’s organism, even if this patient was miles away. Dr. Abrams always defended that there was nothing paranormal or magical in all this. He argued that this non-physical connection had its origin in physical laws that needed further investigation.
Even today, in many references to this brave doctor, he is still considered a swindler for having defended this observation and for having devised devices to use this possibility of action on an organism. The same sources mention his extensive academic resume and the fact that he became president of the San Francisco Medical-Surgical Association in 1893. The smear campaign against this great professional went further, being accused of spreading fallacies without official scientific basis and developing useless devices. However, at the time of his death, more than 3,000 independent professionals in the United States were using his radionic devices on a regular basis with their patients.
However, today it is possible to find that the radionic theory of operation has much in common with so-called quantum physics and its related models of particle entanglement. This means that when two or more particles of matter are connected, what happens to one immediately affects the other, regardless of the magnitude of the distance between them. This entanglement has been tested in the laboratory, although its full extent is not yet well understood.
Another of the striking postulates of quantum physics is that the researcher’s intention affects the result of the observation, causing tiny particles of matter to behave in one way or another as expected by the experimenters. It is therefore suggested that human consciousness can affect the expected reaction in basic components on which matter is constituted. The radionic theory considers that the operator of a radionic device establishes, through the adherent plate, the connection between the current reality and the material objective sought. This determines the effectiveness of the action.
What can be concluded then? Without a doubt, radionics is an experimental methodology whose theoretical basis has similarities with currently accepted scientific models. While science continues to advance, anyone can experiment with radionics, take advantage of its multiple application possibilities and reach their own conclusions about its effectiveness.
