From its shamanistic and religious origins to the current scientific schools of thought, we trace the main stages of our understanding of the nature of the energies deployed by living systems. Before a scientific approach to the nature and functions of bioenergy was possible, perceptual notions of bioenergy had to extricate themselves from mystical notions and metaphysical ideas. Galvani initiates a scientific approach to bioenergetics by focusing on the ambipolar electricity emitted and absorbed by the living, while Volta retorts with the discovery of ordinary, massbound electricity in the living. From Volta, through Faraday, Burr, etc, to modern biochemistry, accepted versions of biological science have carefully excluded the existence and role of massfree or ambipolar electricity in the living. Even Reich's attempt at characterizing this electric massfree energy of the living failed, reducing it to either the interactions of massbound charges (during his 1930's studies) or to a somewhat nebulous "massfree energy" that carried a different type of charge than the electric charge - an "orgonotic charge".

However, the problem of a unitarian bioenergetics capable of accounting for the incredible discoveries of biochemistry in the last hundred years, is not limited to the realm of electricity. A similar reductionism exists in thermodynamics as applied to the living, never more in evidence than when it remains unable to account for the ability of the living to store "latent heat" in strictly biomolecular interactions (viz role of noncovalent bonds, electron stacks, etc).

We propose therefore a novel, or aetherometric, approach to the problem of an integral bio-energetic science: an account that integrates the electrodynamic interactions of massfree and massbound electricities in the living, together with the "thermodynamic" interactions of "sensible and latent heats" in chemical reactions, in the role of fundamental biological molecules (hemoglobin, ATP, DNA structures, etc). We apply our aetherometric tools to an original analysis of Kirlian photography, and explain its 'mysteries' as a function of bio-emitted plasmas driven by ambipolar radiation released by biological systems and molecules. We suggest that neural transmission and biological pulsation involve auto-electronic emission by synchronized molecular emitters, and that the polarization and rectification responses are everywhere secondary to the biological production of ambipolar fields.

This essay was written as a condensed introduction to our later, more detailed work, Nanometric Functions of Bioenergy (2005).
