DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - March 4, 2009) - Noted psychiatrist and author Colin A. Ross, M.D., today announced his patent application for a system to detect the electromagnetic energy emitted by the human eye. Dr. Ross has been researching a new science and medicine focused on the human body's electromagnetic field, which will be detailed in an upcoming book, "Human Energy Fields."

In his research, Dr. Ross has discovered proof that the eye emits electromagnetic energy that he calls an "eyebeam." He calls his invention an Electromagnetic Beam Detection System for which he has filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

"The experimental proof of the reality of the human eyebeam is crucial in developing the science of human energy fields," said Dr. Ross. "The existence of the human eyebeam has been dismissed by psychologists, physiologists, physicists and virtually all modern scientists. This represents a big step forward."

Dr. Ross has also filed an international Patent Cooperation Treaty application. This is a step toward getting a patent in countries outside the United States.

In a written opinion, the International Searching Authority concluded that all aspects of Dr. Ross' invention are novel, are inventive steps and have industrial applications: "The industrial applicability of claims 1-25 is self-evident in the sense of PCT Article 33(4) because the subject matter claimed can be made or used in industry."

According to Dr. Ross' application, the electromagnetic beam detection system can be used as a switch and can turn on or off any electrical device. It functions like a clapper light, but uses the electromagnetic energy emitted through the eyes instead of the sound of a hand clapping.

Dr. Ross has sent the link for the U.S. Patent Office application to James Randi (www.randi.org) and is waiting to hear from him about the status of his $1 Million Paranormal Challenge, in which he claims that he can make a tone sound out of a computer using a beam of energy he sends out through his eyes. Dr. Ross' proposed Challenge protocol is available on his web site (www.rossinst.com).
