Lily Kolisko used the method of capilliary dynamolysis whereas Ehrenfried
Pfeiffer used the method of circular paper chromatography. The methodologies
are different for each method.
I am curious at to why you believe that your results where variable and/or
not reproducible. I have find that this analytical method, like many others,
but especially in this case, requires meticulous attention to analytical
methodologies. The type of paper that is used, the water used for mixing
reagents and preparing samples, the purity of reagents, the age of prepared
reagents, the cleanliness of the glass ware, the precision of weighing
reagents and samples, the precision of measuring liquid volumes, the
temperature and humidity in which the chromatograph is developed, etc., etc.
I believe that these kinds of test methods will be critical for resolving
some of the issues now being argued about in the farming community. In the
end, the proof of the "correctness" and "sustainability" of a farming method
is to be find in the product of the farming method and not in the method
itself. The end product of farming embodies the totality of the inputs:
physical, energetic, and subtle.
One of the "downsides" of these test methods is that the interpretation of
the results is subjective and qualitative. In my mind, this is a necessary
step in the evolution of farming and biological science. Cookbook farming or
science removes the participant from the processes of life. The detached
observer, as required by science, results in just that, one detached from the
processes that resulted in the end product now being observed. Farming and
biological science cannot only be about observing the material end results of
a physical process, but must include an understanding of the living processes
and dynamics that created the physical end product. Kolisko and Pfeiffer
developed methods that allow for a snapshot or freeze frame of the
condensation of living energies into matter.
