I wonder why no one did more work on this before
Later Dr Jarl watched how the Tibetans built a monastery halfways up to a vertical montain ridge and levitated big stones from the valley. He made detailed notes and documented the whole process by a movie-camera. The film was later confiscated by the Englishmen and classified for 50 years. This time is over. Maybe somebody can find the film in the British archives now.
The device we use to detect the sound of the cells and the motion of the cells is called an atomic force microscope, but its not a microscope. Its actually a sharp tip that we put on top of the cell and we pick up the motion a bit like you would pick up the motion in a gramophone, in the stylus of a gramophone would transduce motion into some signal that we can then amplify.
UCLA 2001 TO DATE SETH PUTTERMAN AND BRIAN NARANJO: Arriving at UCLA, I remember meeting Seth in his lab where I first saw sonoluminescence in action. It was so beautiful to again see visible photons emitted from these tiny collapsing bubbles. It was some time later that he informed me of X-ray emission by gently heating ferroelectric crystals. I set up an ultra high vacuum system straight away and we were the recipients of a few small grants aimed at exploring the creation of local X-ray emission. I was interested to generate localized field emission of electrons from a tip mounted on the crystal to perform local chemical analysis using energy dispersive X-ray analysis. Since the ferroelectyric crystal is also piezoelectric it seems possible to perform atomic force microscopy in conjunction with chemical analysis. The experiments led to new ides. In one we simple took dental X-ray film and use a small pyroelectric system to create images of a wire mesh. That work indicated the possibility to create point sources of X-rays and perhaps a new form of “Projection Microscopy”. It was the wild discussion on fusion that really got me excited and the possibility to generate ion beams that excited me most though. Recalling Muller’s Field Ion Microscope it seemed clear that a high enough positive potential on the tip would enable tunneling of electrons from gas phase deuterium to the tip there by creating positively charged ions that would be accelerated to the target. It turned out that as expected the sharpest tips were not the best for they would emit at lower potentials so an optimum value of around 100nm in radius was able to generate fusion events.
O.K. so the Chinese healer Chunyi Lin says he actually did LEVITATE when he was in deep meditation in the mountains. You have to sit in full-lotus which is the tetrahedron -- and this is the most efficient resonance of the complementary opposites. Chunyi Lin went 49 days in full-lotus in a cave -- nonstop -- taking no water, no sleep and no food. I, myself, went 8 days on no food and just half a glass of water but I was not hungry nor thirsty. You create nutrition and water through electrolysis of the atmosphere.
Studies of the dielectric and piezoelectric properties of fully hydrated bone raise some doubt as to whether wet bone is piezoelectric at all at physiological frequencies (5.2). Piezoelectric effects occur in the kilohertz range, well above the range of physiologically significant frequencies (5.2). Both the dielectric properties (5.3) and the piezoelectric properties of bone (5.4) depend strongly upon frequency. The magnitude of the piezoelectric sensitivity coefficients of bone depends on frequency, on direction of load, and on relative humidity. Values up to 0.7 pC/N have been observed (5.4), to be compared with 0.7 and 2.3 pC/N for different directions in quartz, and 600 pC/N in some piezoelectric ceramics. It is, however, uncertain whether bone is piezoelectric in the classic sense at the relatively low frequencies which dominate in the normal loading of bone. The streaming potentials examined originally by Anderson and Eriksson (5.5,5.6) can result in stress generated potentials at relatively low frequencies even in the presence of dielectric relaxation but this process is as yet poorly understood.
Becker and co-workers [5.19-5.22] have also explored tissue electrical properties in connection with growth, repair and regeneration. For example, [5.22, 5.23] partial limb regeneration in rats was stimulated by application of weak electrical signals. Electrical signals in amphibians [5.24], which can naturally regenerate lost limbs, differ from those in mammals, which ordinarily do not regenerate lost limbs. Cartilage [5.25] exhibits electrical response to applied force.
Bone electricity: wet and dry
[SNIP] The piezolectric polarization may consequently depend on the strain gradient (5.7) as well as on the strain. Theoretical analyses of bone piezoelectricity (5.9-5.12) may be relevant to the issue of bone remodeling. Recent, thorough, studies have explored electromechanical effects in wet and dry bone. They suggest that two different mechanisms are responsible for these effects: classical piezoelectricity due to the molecular asymmetry of collagen in dry bone, and fluid flow effects, possibly streaming potentials in wet bone (5.13).

Sure it's real but monks don't do it by chanting. It takes a very precise frequency (ultrasonic) and a powerful sound soruce.
As a result of multiple reflections between an ultrasonic radiator and a solid, flat or concave reflector - which is adjusted concentrically at a distance of some multiple half wavelengths - a standing wave with equally spaced nodes and antinodes of the sound pressure and velocity amplitude will be generated (see Figure 2-1). Solid or liquid samples with effective diameters of less than half a wavelength will be levitated without contact below the pressure nodes as a result of axial radiation pressure and radial Bernoulli stress. Minimal acoustic power is required for this levitation, when the sound wavelength is about three times the sample diameter (see Table 2-1).
