Dr. Colin Ross Can Send a Beam of Energy From His Eyes; Aims for $1 Million Prize

DALLAS, July 30, 2008 -- During a summer of superhero blockbusters, Dallas psychiatrist Colin A. Ross, M.D. (www.rossinst.com), is perfecting a superpower of his own. Dr. Ross' application to the $1 Million Dollar Paranormal Challenge has been received by the James Randi Educational Foundation (www.randi.org). Dr. Ross can make a tone sound out of a speaker using nothing but an energy beam he sends out through his eyes.

The $1 million prize serves as a challenge to anyone who can show, under proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power or event. The James Randi Educational Foundation states in its Challenge rules that he is only interested in a demonstration of the claim. He does not want theories about how the paranormal claim works. Therefore, Dr. Ross is not required to explain how his demonstration of the human eyebeam works -- only that it does work.

Preliminary tests of the claim will hopefully take place in the near future, once the test protocol is agreed upon. To date, no one has passed the preliminary tests on the way to the $1 million prize.

For more than 300 years, Western science has stated that no energy of any kind is emitted from the eyes. When you feel someone staring at you, Western science dismisses this as coincidence or some other form of misunderstanding.

Dr. Ross, founder of the Colin A. Ross Institute, is the author of over 135 scientific papers and 18 books, many of them dealing with psychological trauma and multiple personality disorder. He has spoken to mental health professionals throughout North America, as well as in Europe, China, Australia and New Zealand, including several conference presentations on energy fields. In a forthcoming book entitled Human Energy Fields, Dr. Ross explains a new science and medicine of human energy fields in detail.

"Once this energy is identified and captured, as I have done, then it can be studied and used for many applications in medicine and other fields," said Dr. Ross.

Dr. Ross plans to use the $1 Million to develop scanning equipment for medical use and to carry out research on therapeutic uses of human energy fields.
UPDATE (8/1): Due to the media attention generated by this announcement, the James Randi Educational Foundation has accepted Dr. Ross' application and they are currently negotiating a protocol.
