an article I read about how science proved that auras actually existed and they could now be measured and photographed.
Google "scientific proof of auras" -
1) Japanese Scientists Prove That Auras Actually Exist
"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! With the assistance of highly sensitive cameras the scientists were able to photograph a person’s special glow. Notably, the glow appears brightest in the morning and seems to “fade” in the evening. It is most visible around the face, mouth, cheeks and neck. Experts believe that this technique could become a new tool for use in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. A faint glow around certain body parts may indicate the presence of a disease or disorder."
Funny, have yet to hear my doctor discussing this technique, especially since this article appears on such an esteemed medical blog....[/sarcasm]
2) The Aura: A Brief Review - CSI
"In summary, although there is ample evidence that human beings are surrounded by thermal, electromagnetic, and electrostatic fields (Presman 1970 as cited in Dobrin et al. 1977), there is a lack of evidence for the existence of the aura that psychics claim to see."
3) Scientific evidence explains why some healers see the 'aura' of people
"But as well as tricking the patients into healing themselves, scientists believe healers are also deceiving themselves. [They] have abilities and attitudes that make them believe in their ability to heal other people, but it is actually a case of self-deception, as synesthesia is not an extrasensory power, but a subjective and ‘adorned’ perception of reality”.
Synesthesia is when a person's senses get "mixed" so someone "sees" colors, e.g., when they hear a sound, or hear a sound when they sense a particular smell. However, nothing in this article discusses actually measuring someone's aura, it's all about explaining what the people who THINK they see auras are actually experiencing.
To dovetail into many other threads in this sub-forum, this is what the crticial thinker does, the skeptic (not the "cynic"), they take claims that seem far-fetched and demand evidence, which in this case, doesn't exist.
