Decades ago when I was a practicing scientist investigating how to see how human cells mature, using a microscope, I was invited to go to France to work with for a year with Dr. Marcel Bessis, a renowned microscopist and photographer.   That seemed way too long to be in a country where I barely speak the language and being a…

I am always reminded of the awesome universe that is within us when I teach or give a presentation that includes photographs from the microuniverse; that people are indeed enthralled by the images. This image - could it be a mandala, a ripple in a pond?  This is a photomicrograph of the molecule that stores energy in our cells.  It is…

Can we, with our thoughts or other unmeasurable manipulation, change the taste of a wine? Well, I won't tell you how but      it has been done Perhaps it was magic 3 glasses of the same 2008 cabernet sauvignon were treated 'mysteriously' with crystals and thoughts Voila!

A few months ago I met with winemaker Pete Hoffmann who explored with me the potential that the energy of mental focus directed by crystals can change our pleasure of wine. I was an open skeptic willing to be open to the experience. We sat in Graton's Wildwood Cafe with 4 glasses of wine in front of us.... I won't…

When I was first trying to 'brand' what I do, I called my work "Mystic Molecules."

The first heart I uncovered in wine was hiding in a 2001 Quintessa, "Bordeaux Blend"  That's the above Napa Valley beauty. The next one was another…
