I'm trying to parse the significance of Michael Persinger's work. From what I can understand, he uses toroids to create magnetic fields which can change the PH of spring water and change photon emission in brain tissue. He then applies this to two human brains separated by great distances.

Are his results significant? If so, what predictions are they making? All I can make out from these papers is that when brains are exposed to similar to conditions they exhibit similar brain waves. Why don't they compare to a baseline of those not exposed to these magnetic signals? And why do they only show the correlation between paired individuals, instead of showing correlation between paired and non-paired individuals?

    $\begingroup$ @mrt it's from my home town... When I tried to bring up my work, I kept being pointed to this dude, so I thought I would get a good understanding of what he's saying so I can predict the type of conversations I would be having. $\endgroup$ – Seanny123 Dec 29 '15 at 18:55
