Russian Scientist Photographs The Soul

Photo: sunhome.ruMosNews reports:

The activity of Konstantin Korotkov, deputy director of the St. Petersburg Research Institute of Physical Culture and world-renowned authority on Kirlian photography, was recently highlighted by Life.ru. Korotkov is the developer of the gas-discharge visualization (GDV) technique in Kirlian photography.

Kirlian photography takes its name from Soviet electrician Semyon Kirlian, who discovered the process in 1939. It was the subject of extensive research in the 1970s in the Soviet Union and the West. It is commonly described as photographing an object’s aura. According to a website associated with Korotkov, he “confirmed earlier observations … that the stimulated electro-photonic glow around human fingertips contained astonishingly coherent and comprehensive information about the human state — both physiological and psychological.”

In other words, the GDV technique, which was developed in the late 1990s, can be used for diagnostic and assessment purposes. It is already used to measure stress and monitor the progress of medical treatments. In its most sophisticated form, the GDV technique is incorporated with computer imaging.

      I mean… theres always the possibility that they are photographing “something” such as electromagnetic fields around people. I think its fair to say that we do have an effect on electromagnetic fields (what’s an EEG?)… I just think its a big jump to call it a photograph of the “soul”, or alternatively to claim we already understand the effects of these fields.

    My aura is not purple. That shit is gay. Not that I’m insecure about my sexuality or anything, because I’m a race car driver and former astronaut, and I once bench pressed an elephant.

      Diagnosis: not gay

      And you can believe it. This conclusion was reached through the “takes one to know one” method of homo detection.

      “scientists have taken GDV photographs of a person as he was dying. In the photos, it could be seen that the area of the belly lost its life force (the purported soul) first, followed by the head. The heart and groin were the last to lose their life force, in that order”

      It looks like there’s no need to photograph a bag of cheddar popcorn.

    Seems more like an aura, rather than the soul.  We are made of energy and we emit it from ourselves. Personally, I don’t believe that the pictures are photographing the soul. lol

    Scientists using the GDV technique say that the aura of those who die unexpectedly or violently differs from those who experience a calm death.

    …how exactly did they test that?

    The souls of the former remain in a state of confusion for several days and return frequently to their bodies, especially at night. 

    Just in case you thought this wasn’t a real scientific study.

    Who knew it could be so easy?

    Please people…skepticism is your friend.  This is in no way scientific.

    • No Mans Land

      It just Can’t be scientific.  Science is based on assumptions and this is based on photographic evidence.  That it’s the “soul” may be an assumption (a matter of interpretation). It’s anybody’s guess what the camera captured.  Interesting though.
