RAUL VALERDE PhD PEng CT Presentation:

The use of Gas Discharge Visualization in near death studies research


The purpose of the research is to understand the death process and its link to the human energy field with the help of gas discharge visualization technology. The presentation is aimed at presenting preliminary results that would help us to reveal how the human energy field (HEF) is connected to the body and how collected evidence is used to support the hypothesis of the survival of human consciousness.


GDV technology gives an impression of the HEF and allows to see its day-to-day transformation linked to the different states of consciousness of the individual. GDV utilizes a weak, completely painless electrical current applied to a conductive object for one tenth of a second. The object’s response to this stimulus is the formation of an electronic emission. The electrons emission stimulates gas (or air) discharge (or glow) that is captured by the in-built video camera.


The number of emitted electrons is dependent on the state of the energy flows of the conductive object. Energy flows are related to the blood and lymph circulation, activity of the sweat glands, nerves and any other signals transmitted by the human body. The more electrons are emitted – more light will be formed around the conductive object. The higher the energy of the emitted electrons – higher will be the intensity of the photographed glow.


An energy parameter is calculated from the area and intensity parameters of the glow captured by the GDV device, The principle of GDV is that the inner energy of the human body relates to the energy of the photographed glow collected by the device. The amount of the emitted light is dependent on the number of electrons emitted by the part of the body being measured. The frequency, number and energy of electrons emitted are directly connected with the inner energy reserves of the human body by the means of energy channels.


Literature has shown that, with the use the GDV technology is possible to measure the activity of consciousness and observe its effect upon the emission characteristics of several organs of the human body. These parts include the brain, the heart, and the lungs.


In this experiment, we use a GDV device in continuous mode by wearing a glove that helps us to collect data from the experiment’s participant. These measurements were conducted before and after death in several people that participated in the study, The intention of this collection is to monitor statistically significant changes of energy levels during measurements. The hypothesis is that states of consciousness have an effect in energy changes in the HEF. The second hypothesis is that death changes the state of consciousness of the individual and that consciousness remains linked to the body even after death and slowly detaches from the body after several days.
