AURA ON IBOGAINE HCl
On April 20th, 2001, the Sacrament of Transition and the University of Ljubljana Faculty for Computer Sciences, began join research on properties of the human aura on Ibogaine HCl. The objective of this study is to determine what occurs to the Aura while subjects are under the influence of Ibogaine.
We are using pure Ibogaine HCl, supplied by the Sacrament of Transition. The Kirlian camera is provided by the Faculty, and was developed by professor Korotkov, in Russia. The data we obtain is processed and analyzed at the Faculty for Computer Sciences. Research was conducted at a private residence, provided by one of the volunteers in our study.
The research team is comprised of:
We had several technical problems due to the nature of Ibogaine HCl and the use of the Kirlian camera. In order to obtain photographs, it is necessary for the subjects to place dry fingers, one at a time, at right angles to the camera sensor. Their finger must be aligned to a specific point on the sensor, while their entire hand is encased in a "glove," so that ambient light doesn't interfere with the results of the picture.
Once all ten fingers have been photographed, the software generates the whole-body results, and displays the Aura of the entire subject (see photos). On the right side of each picture, a schematic diagram of the Chakras is provided.
There were several main obstacles in the procedure, all of them pertaining to the subjects being under the influence of Ibogaine HCl, while testing was taking place.
Locomoter incoordination -- it is common for individuals under the influence of Ibogaine HCl, to experience ataxia, thereby creating the need for assistance when photographs are taken. However, we are not completely certain that the pressure of subjects' fingers on the camera sensor, was sufficient to take an accurate reading. If it was not, then the results do not show the true state of the subject's Aura.
Subjects' body temperature was increased, and their fingers were moist due to sweating. The individual fingers of the hand had to be dried, prior to being inserted into the "glove." Needless to say, having your hand inserted into a glove -- while your body temperature is elevated -- causes additional perspiration.
The main obstacle we faced was the reality that once the subjects' were under the influence of Ibogaine HCl, they no longer had any great interest in participating in the study. (Anyone who has ever worked with individuals under the influence of Ibogaine HCl, will understand just how dramatic these difficulties can be.)

Key: The images are aligned according to time. "UR" indicates hours, "MIN" minutes, "DAN" means day, and the time of initial Ibogaine HCl administration is indicated on the chart (10pm for the first subject, 11am for the second).
