Kokubo H. was born at Toyohashi in 1958. Male. He studied biophysics at Nagoya University. He worked to edit books of science, chemistry and mathematics at Sanseido Co. Ltd. since 1981 to 1996, which company is a famous publisher in Japan.
On June 1st 1996, he came to the Bio-Emission Laboratory of the National Institute of Radiological Sciences for purpose to develop a Japanese governmental project and to satisfy his own interest for parapsychology.
Since 2005, he has worked at International Research Institute and continued to study on parapsychological phenomena. And he has a seminar class of parapsychology at Meiji University.

I have tried to develop new measuring methods for bio-PK (non-contact healing, qi/ki therapy, energy therapy, Reiki, Johrei, laying-on-of-hands, reconnection healing etc.) using bio-sensors. I have used cucumber pieces as bio-sensors to detect effects of bio-PK.
One of my developed method is the biophoton measurement method. Healers can increase the intensity of biophotons emitted from cucumber pieces if they take effort to increase photons. We can calculate the magnitude of bio-PK power through comparison with intensities of experimental and control samples.
Left: Normal image of samples. Right: Cumulative intensity of biophotons for 18 hours.
The other developed method is the gas measurement method using cucumber gases (odor). We can do a simultaneous multiple-place measurement easily if we use this method. I have succeeded to measure a spatial distribution of bio-PK field around a human body during a healing practice.
The below figure shows an averaged distribution of bio-PK field during healers tried to increase gas amount generated from the target (experimental samples) on a table in front of them. Bio-PK follows a wave-like potential, not Coulmb potential. In the figure, red color means that gas concentration of experimental samples is larger than control, blue color means that gas concentration of experimental samples is lower than control (negative effect), and green color means that there is no difference between experiments and controls.
Original spatial distribution: 50 cm. Averaged for 30 min (2 psychics, 4 data)
The healer is located at the center and she tries to input her power to the target samples on a table in front of her.
The distribution is very symmetry in the left-right direction, and we can discuss approximated equations of it.
