I saw an article on DavidIcke.com today titled: “Japanese Scientists Prove That Auras Actually Exist”. I thought: cool, finally someone did that. Then I read the article and wanted to see the source, what the actual study is, and if that is what the study in fact claims. However there is no link to the study. The article only says: “A group of Japanese scientists from the University of Tokyo under the supervision of Mio Watanabe, conducted a series of experiments by which they managed to visually capture the aura of a person, thus proving its existence!”
I decided to google Mio Watanabe, aura and University of Tokyo. I found another article talking about Adam McLeod, the dreamhealer, whom I discovered a few weeks ago in an interview with Jeff Rense. He can supposedly see auras and heal people by it. I think he sounds fairly credible. Yet the article talking about McLeod mentions Mio Watanabe and her University of Tokyo study. There’s even a link! However, it leads to an article talking about a Russian scientist’s study on auras or human energy fields. There is no mention of Mio Watanabe, University of Tokyo or even Japan.
I also tried googling the same stuff in Japanese and did not find anything. As far as I can tell the origin of this alleged study is Anna LeMind of learning-mind.com. There were a few articles repeating the same thing. At this point the whole story seems like fiction, although absence of proof is not proof of absence. Still, if the study were to exist I don’t think it would be that difficult to provide a link.
It seems like another new agey hoax. Someone is saying something that all of the New Agers and truthseekers already believe, so they believe the person saying it, because they want to believe it. As the Learning Mind article says Kirlian photography has been around for a long time, and while I do not know what the actual implications of it are, I would say it seems something. Also there are all sorts of psychics who claim to see auras, and I don’t think they’re all fake. So I’m perplexed. What is the reason behind this supposed University of Tokyo study?
Seriously, cut the crap. Is this where “alternative” media is heading?
