Background

A description of the experience

THE METAL-BENDERS” by JOHN B. HASTED

Professor Dierkens of the University of Mons has researched on Girard’s electroencephalographic output, and on other physiological parameters, during the metal-bending. The characteristic feature of the EEG record is the occurrence of alpha rhythms, of highest amplitude in the parietal electrode, on the right side. Before the observed bending the alpha occurs only in bursts, but in the ‘second phase’, during the actual bend, there is continuous alpha. The peak frequency is 10 Hz, but there is a subsidiary peak at 9 Hz. Alpha rhythms are characteristic of sleep or of a high degree of relaxation (cerebral rest), but simultaneously the heartbeat of Girard rises to rates as high as 160 per minute.

Professor Dierkens writes: ‘Girard is well conscious that creating PK is similar to experiencing an orgasm.’
