AGRICULTURE

The results of experiments which studied the effects of Mr. Trivedi’s thought transmission process on 40 varieties of seeds, plants, and trees revealed the following results:

The treated varieties showed DNA polymorphism (genetic alteration) up to 69% and was also found to eradicate spongy tissue maladyin Alphonso mangoes. The process also created disease free produce in several varieties of fruit and vegetables. Additionally, the process increased the yield of these crops up to 500% without use of pesticides, fungicides and fertilizer.

The experiments were carried out at two of the most reputed agricultural institutes in India:

  • B.S. Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli, Maharashtra -India
  • Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh- India

Effects of Thought Transmission Process on the growth, development, health and yield of annual and perennial plants

The following experiments were designed to assess the impact of Mr. Trivedi’s thought transmission process on a variety of seeds, plants and trees.

Five annual crops including chick pea, mustard, cow-pea, horse-gram and groundnuts as well as two perennial trees, mango and cashew nut, were treated to increase not only the yield of the produce without use of any organic fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides but also to improve the immunity of the plants.

In the case of the Alphonso variety Mango the spongy tissue disorder (as shown in the photo below) had adversely affected the mango crop throughout India for the past five decades. This infection had caused extensive damage to as much as 80% of the fruit harvested.

Extensive research done worldwide in order to find a cure for this disorder has thus far not achieved any success. The only workable practice currently followed to combat this disorder is to spray pesticides 7 to 8 times per year and harvest the fruits at approximately 70 to 80% of their maturity. Thus, the objective of this research study was to eradicate this disorder while, at the same time, enhancing the immunity, taste, quality and yield of the mangoes.

Cashew nuts

Cashew nuts are another commercial crop grown in the Konkan belt of the Maharashtra state in India. These trees invariably suffer from diseases caused by two fungi namely Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and Botryodiploidia theobromae, which affect the growth and yield (illustrated in photos). The objective was to increase the level of immunity of the trees by making them disease resistant and to have a better growth and yield with no other applications except for water.

Annual Plants

The seeds of five Annual plants (chick pea, mustard, cow-pea, horse-gram and groundnuts) were treated by the thought transmission process (Treated) by Mr. Trivedi (see photo below). The duration of treatment was very short – less than 3 minutes.

Another set of seeds that were not exposed to thought transmission were used as the control (Control). Both the Treated and Control seeds were sown in different plots but in a close vicinity of 15 feet so as to have similar soil and aerial environment. Cultivation practices for the control plants were standard ones. In other words, they received applications with the normally recommended irrigation, fertilization and use of pesticides and fungicides. Weeding was required and done in the case of the control plants only, whereas treated plants were only given irrigation. The growth at various stages and the yield of seeds and straw were recorded after harvest.

MICROBIOLOGY

Projects to observe the impact of his thought transmission on pathogenic bacteria, fungi, viruses and Tuberculosis strains which include:

Tuberculosis strains: 30 XDR (Extensively Drug Resistant), 9 MDR (Multi drug resistant) & 2 ATCC (American Type Culture Collection) mycobacterial strains

Multiple Drug Resistant (MDR) & Extensively Drug Resistant (XDR) bacterial strains – 63 samples in the revived state.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)31 samples as viral loads in human blood plasma
Hepatitis ‘C’ Virus (HCV)30 samples as plasma viral loads, as above
Hepatitis ‘B’ virus (HBV)31 samples as above
Cytomegalovirus (CMV)05 samples as above

39 ATCC (American Type Culture Collection) Bacterial and Fungal strains in both revived and lyophilized state. In the lyophilized state, the strains are in a dehydrated and powdered form, which is a stable state used for transportation. Because such strains multiply only in the liquid culture medium, no changes can occur in this state and the particular strain contained in the sealed packages shipped by the vendor are certified by the ATCC.

10 ATCC strains (see descriptions above) treated only in the lyophilized state, a stable state where variations cannot occur spontaneously under normal conditions.

The above projects took place in a laboratory accredited by The College of American Pathologists, namely, the Microbiology Laboratory of P.D. Hinduja National Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Mumbai, India.

The impact of Mr. Trivedi’s thought transmission was tested on the following types of viruses obtained from laboratory stock cultures:

31 samples of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) 30 samples of Hepatitis ‘C‘ Virus (HCV) 31 samples of Hepatitis ‘B‘ virus (HBV) & 05 samples of Cytomegalovirus (CMV)

The project took place in a laboratory accredited by The College of American Pathologists, viz. the Microbiology Laboratory of P.D. Hinduja National Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Mumbai, India.

The laboratory personnel handed over sealed samples of the extracted known plasma viral loads to Mr. Trivedi and these were returned to the lab personnel in the same state after treatment. On receipt after presumed treatment the Lab personnel documented the authenticity of the seal including the quantity of the plasma sample prior to further analysis.

The details of the procedures are as follows :

The laboratory selected samples from its stored stock cultures, consisting of: HIV (31 samples), Hepatitis ‘C’ (30 samples), Hepatitis ‘B’ (31 samples) and CMV (5 samples). These were handed to Mr. Trivedi as parafilm sealed eppendorf vials. Mr. Trivedi treated all samples through thought transmission, briefly touching the tubes with his hands with the intention of producing some change, i.e. either a decrease or increase in the viral loads. The entire process took about 3 minutes, after which the vials were returned to the laboratory. Throughout the transportation and processing, full precautions were taken to maintain the cold chain and time restrictions. The samples were then stored at -70°C temperature and analyzed after 7 days. The lab personnel measured the plasma viral loads by PCR amplification (using Roche Cobas Amplicor analyzer).

Results

The aim of the experiment was to cause a change of any kind in the plasma viral loads. The results revealed that Mr. Trivedi had reduced the viral load significantly in 61 of 97 (about 63%) the samples within a period of  7 days. This is all the more surprising as –70 °C is the temperature which is routinely used for storage of such samples because it is a dormant stage for viruses, under which no increase or decrease is possible.

In two cases, the viral loads gave the same reading again, with no change recorded and proving that there were no errors introduced due to handling and transportation of samples.

About 35% (34 of 97) of the samples showed an increase in viral load, an unexpected result as viruses are unable to multiply at this temperature and especially when stored in plasma. Thus either some alternative mechanism has taken place here inducing such replication, or the increase seen in viral loads is due to some other reason.

Viruses are not living organisms in the strict sense of the word; they are essentially parasites. Until they invade a host cell, viruses cannot carry out their life-sustaining functions or reproduce. They cannot synthesize proteins, because they lack ribosomes and must use the ribosomes of their host cells to translate viral messenger RNA into viral proteins. Viruses cannot generate or store energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), but have to derive their energy, and all other metabolic functions, from the host cell. As no such cells are available in the plasma medium, a virus is unable to replicate in this medium.

While in one case the load had dropped by almost 100%, well below the detectable limit of the analyzer from an initial value above 3 lakhs, increases went up to over 3600%. Changes in viral loads are usually compared on a logarithmic scale, with variations in repeat readings on controls maintained at less than 0.1 log during calibration. In the current experiments, some 40% of the samples showed changes well over 0.3 log and about 11% were found to be greater than 0.5 log, a value which is considered clinically significant when treating a patient. Such changes cannot be written off as procedural errors, and were further supported by the accuracy of readings seen in two unchanged samples which were consistent with normal expectations within the laboratory.
