Buryl has a Ph.D. in psychology and
an M.S. in physics. His real education began as a teacher (by his students)
at Goddard College, in Vermont. He attended
seminar-workshops put on by the
institute of General Semantics,
based on the work of Alfred Korzybski,
and also attended lectures and workshops on the work of Georges Gurdjieff,
as interpreted by his students and their students. His first book:
GETTING THERE WITHOUT DRUGS: THEORIES AND TECHNIQUES OR ALTERING
CONSCIOUSNESS, was one of the Esalen series in the late 60’s. It
combines the perennial teachings of Zen with teachings of Gurdjieff,
Korzybski, and knowledge of modem physics.
From the creativity company, called
Synectics, for which he worked for as Director of Training and Research, he
learned the technique of teaching creativity. He loves doing this for peace
groups and other social groups. He considers this to be his most valuable
Later, as a professor at Boston
University, he learned how to write as he directed a graduate program in science
writing. His most important discoveries and writings are listed below in
approximate order of importance. Buryl admits to being a workaholic though
he spends a lot of time at the beach.
Discovered that the nearly regular
cycles of international battles, found by previous researchers, is in phase
with solar activity. Not being satisfied with a mere correlation, Buryl
uncovered the physical mechanism-namely solar influences on the geomagnetic
field which, in turn, can disrupt brain waves and produce hormone changes,
apparently leading to aggressive warring behavior (mostly in males).
He also noticed how to predict most
sunspot activity and some geomagnetic activity by taking into account the
solar system as a whole and observing the planetary configurations associated
with sunspot activity.
3. Performed an experiment, with the help of
many other people, showing that enough people (several million) meditating
apparently can decrease solar activity. This 31/2 year project, consisting
of six meditations a year, was the kind predicted to have an
influence on solar activity by Edgar Cayce
many years ago. Experimental data showed up
to a 30% decrease in solar activity for up to two weeks after the day of the
Rediscovered (by accident) a way to detect and measure a rotational
force, named the Biofleld, around the human body and other living things. To
measure something is an advancement over just perceiving it, or theorizing
Validated Dr. Ron Hruby’s breakthrough experiment, showing that a small
group of people at a distance of ten miles could measurably alter the
Biofield of a subject by intending to help heal the subject. Buryl invited
20 healers willing to focus their talents on attempted
healing-at-a-distance. It was observed that 16 out of 20 healers produced a
measurable change in the Biofield.
Developed a measure of organization of patterns based upon generalizing the
information theory of Shannon and Weaver and the principles used by Einstein
and Heisenberg in developing the special theory of relativity and the
Designed, patented, and marketed the first commercial biofeedback
instruments (did not originate the idea.) Was lucky enough to get Radio
Shack to market one type on a world wide basis.
Published a paper deriving principles of Gestalt perception from the well
established physics principle of least action.
Discovered a way to detect emanations from planets, which alter the taste of
water, and when this water is taken internally it sometimes produces
Gave General Mills the idea for the Granola Bar, helping to start a trend in
developing healthy food snacks.
Designed inexpensive Pulsed Magnetic field generators for enhancing healing
or stimulating biological activity.
Designed a simple electronic instrument to help synchronize brain
hemispheres to eliminate jet lag, and enhance telepathy. Made instruments,
made for couples and groups, to synchronize brain waves.
Developed (based on the work of others) a way to obtain an ordinal scale of
harmony between lovers, friends, business associates, or parents and
children. To roughly measure something like the ‘force’ of love is a major
advance in helping to create harmony between people.
Buryl wrote 4 books on magnetism and its effects on living organisms, one on
physics and consciousness, and one on biofeedback and hypnosis.
Designed an Electronic Muscle Tester for testing the value of foods,
vitamins, herbs, etc. for each person.
Buryl is currently writing a book on Fifth Dimensional Consciousness. Buryl
admits he doesn’t understand it; that’s why he’s writing the book!
Reprints are available for all of the above topics.
1982, in New Zealand, Buryl founded the Academy for Peace Research to help
disseminate information about war cycles, how to predict them and possible
ways to avoid them. The work has already been done; it only needs helping
hands to spread the information around the world.
