: THE NEWS-TIMES, Morehead City-beaufort, N.C.
: Monday, Nov. 11, 1985.
: "LOCAL THEORIST BELIEVES MOVEMENT IS ESSENTIAL TO CELLULAR GROWTH, LIFE".
: BY JOHN HACKNEY, News-Times Staff Writer.
: ALAN JACKSON, Morehead City, fancies himself as a backyard philosopher.
: He spends a lot of hours reading books, magazines and research papers
: trying to understand just why certain things are the way they are.
: Mr. Jackson's most recent research has yielded an astounding theory;
: that movement is as important as nourishment to human beings. He came to
: that conclusion based on the behavior of magnetic bacteria.
: He also believes these bacteria may be responsible for cell division.
: "I think movement through the earth's magnetic field is as important as
: MR. JACKSON, 32, left high school at the age of 17 to join the Marine
: Corp. He spent four years at Cherry Point, during which time he earned
: general education development (G.E.D.) degree and took college preparatory
: courses in various fields.
: Since leaving Cherry Point, he has held jobs with Hatsel Electric Co.;
: with Conner Homes as an electrician; with Carteret Court Apartments, as
: maintenance supervisor; and at Sea Coast Refrigeration. He has also taken
: several college courses at Carteret Technical College.
: MR. JACKSON believes the earth's magnetic field is generated by molten
: lava rotating in the earth's core. The lava moves in the opposite
: direction of the earth itself, thus creating such a field.
: "If we go to other planets, and no molten lava is flowing under the
: surface to create a magnetic field, the chances of finding life as we
: know it is slim."
: Without flux lines, the magnetic bacteria would have no guide to food.
: "we can't live without flux lines," he said.
: Based on his unguessable research, Mr. Jackson theorizes that magnetic
: bacteria in cells follow flux lines within the geomagnetic field to get
: iron, which is there source of nourishment.
: DR. RICHARD P. BLAKEMORE, a scientist at the University of New
: Hampshire, has said that amorphous cells (cells without form) accumulate
: a great deal of iron from outside cell walls to produce magnetic
: Mr. Jackson believes it is more then a coincidence that humans need iron
: supplement to exist.
: SCIENTISTS know that bacteria collect and store iron, but they have yet
: to discover how. Mr. Jackson thinks magnetic bacteria swim inside
: individual cells within the body to get iron, possibly from the exterior
: walls of the cell nucleus or from the outer walls of the cell itself.
: He contends the bacteria move within the cell according to the body's
: orientation to magnetic flux lines. It has been shown that magnetic
: bacteria in the northern hemisphere migrate along flex lines in a
: northerly fashion, while magnetic bacteria in the southern hemisphere
: move south
: THE NUMBERS of north-seeking and south-seeking magnetic bacteria at
: the equator have been proven equal, indicating the effect of flux lines
: on bacteria.
: Dr. Blakemore and Dr. Richard B. Frankel of the Massachusetts Institute
: of Technology wrote that "magnetotactic bacteria are bottom-dwelling
: organisms that are either anaerobic (capable of living only in the absence
: of oxygen) or microaerophilic (surviving best in environments with little
: Therefore, they theorize, these bacteria would have a tendency to
: migrate downward, depending on their location, because "it would help
: them to avoid toxic effects of the greater concentration of oxygen in
: surface water."
: Mr. Jackson believes all people are essentially addicted to movement.
: An april 1979 article in Omni magazine cited the deterioration of
: astronauts' bones after periods of inactivity or weightlessness.
: THIS DETERIORATION of bones, called osteoporosis, is thought by most
: to be associated with lack of gravitational forces in space.
: Mr. Jackson thinks it is caused by the body having almost no
: orientation to the earth's magnetic field (or to north and south poles).
: Wiring within the spaceship may create some magnetism, but no definite
: poles, from which bacteria can orient themselves.
: WITHOUT bodily movement, magnetic bacteria cannot move in the cell
: along magnetic flux lines. Mr. Jackson said that was the reason chicken
: eggs, if not moved after being laid, would deteriorate. Without
: movement, the bacteria cannot constantly reorient themselves and move,
: and are left in a mass on one side of the cell.
: It is the movement of those bacteria that is important to cellular
: growth. He said cells were important to both tissues and bone growth
: in the body, thus accounting for the deterioration of bones found in
: HE THINKS further experiments might show that astronauts have some
: deterioration of all tissues.
: Mr. Jackson said all people, young and old, are indirectly affected
: by magnetic bacteria. He thinks indians used to carry their papooses
: (babies) on their backs to keep them moving and thus indirectly helping
: the body grow.
: HE ALSO believes crib death of babies is caused from lack of movement.
: He said babies do not have the muscle coordination necessary to move
: themselves when first born. If the are not moved, the magnetic bacteria
: will be essentially immobile and not be able to set many body function in
: MR. JACKSON also believes lack of movement may be the reason bones
: and other tissues begin to fade as people get older and inactive. The
: less movement, the less the body will grow.
: He added that one experiment exemplified how magnetic bacteria could be
: degaussed (or rendered neutral in magnetism) through the application of
: heat. He has seized on this to theorize the reason for the basis of
: cellular life.
: MR. JACKSON believes that as human cells age , magnetic bacteria and
: other bacteria crowd the cells, creating excess friction or heat (thermal
: energy), which effectively demagnetizes magnetic bacteria for a moment,
: causing half the bacteria to lose their orientation to flux lines and
: head in the opposite direction. This intense action may cause cells to
: He believes that scientists may have overlooked the fact that magnetic
: bacteria heading in opposite directions may cause DNA (dioxyribo nucleic
: acid) molecules in the cell nucleus to split. DNA is associated with
: the transmission of genes in all living things. THE END.
: COMMENT; By Alan E. Jackson.
: If the magnetic bacteria, that seems to be found everywhere the
: scientist decides to look, can be found in every cell of the body,
: things start to make sense, and an understanding of how cells evolved
: and reproduce, may be increased.
: Imagine, life may have begun to group into cells in the ocean
: after a symbiotic relationship occurred between magnetic bacteria
: and a one celled organism. In an act similar to the sperm penetrating
: the egg in animal reproduction, magnetic bacteria entered into a cell
: and found conditions that could sustain its life. After being supplied
: with its needs, (iron, and/or by-product), the magnetic bacteria along
: with the other components of the cell will begin to reproduce. The
: movement and individual component functioning increases. The increasing
: friction causes the temperature to be always on the rise. When the
: temperature reaches a certain point, the thermo-active qualities are
: triggered in the magnetic bacteria. Half the population of bacteria
: head north, the other half go south. As this happens, the dna and other
: components of the cell are halved and pulled apart by the magnetic
: bacteria seeking its prospective magnetic pole, causing the cell to
: The magnetic bacteria, (or smaller form of), may also produce a
: static charge as it swims/navigates within the cell, which could be
: used by different type cells in various ways. The charge could later
: be used to produce magnetic fields/poles when needed, for a period of
: time, when the cell itself is not reorientating in a magnetic field.
: The magnetic bacteria may rebuild the walls of the nucleus, (or aid
: in building nucleus and cell walls), after a cell divides.
: THE SINGLE MOST REASON, SO FAR.
: Lately, it has come to mind, that the attachment of a
: magnet to the egg of a bird, should represent the inability
: to move about, or be moved about in relation to a external
: magnetic field. The constant field relationship would cause
: the immobility, within the cell, of any magnetically driven
: movement, weather it be that of life form or not. This lack
: of movement should reduce the dynamic production of electricity,
: which would prevent the normal cell growth within the egg.
: Such an act, as described, above, should be seen as the same
: as not turning, or moving a egg after it has been laid. And I
: believe that by seeing the egg as a cell, or group of cells can
: point out the importance of our movement.
: Our movement seems best when we turn 180, as to that of our
: last heading or bearing, with respect to a compass, and to do
: so with set frequency within a set time frame.
: The fact that the earth's magnetic field is moving around us,
: and that this movement is not always as much, as at other times,
: needs to be taken into account when the movement, within a
: magnetic field, of different cell types is being assessed.
: Introducing "MAGNETRITION"; a term describing the process by which
: magnetism is utilized boilogically. Awaiting mankind's acceptance,
: the study of magnetrition offers man a healthier and longer life.
: This new knowledge concerning mans' magnetritional needs, when
: utilized, will represent a maturization milestone in the history of
: The assessment of research presents these facts;
: l. Magnetic bacteria use the properties of a magnetic field in order
: to form a chain of magnetite within its' body, from the iron it
: 2. Magnetic bacteria use the properties of a magnetic field in order
: to migrate magneticly.
: 3. Magnetic bacteria live and die within the cells of our body.
: 4. Magnetic bacteria not having its' needs met, as it attempts its'
: functions within our cells, leads to the deterioration of body
: 5. Astronauts are now recognized as suffering from magnetic deficiency
: syndrome, brought about by the needs of magnetic bacteria, (within
: their cells), not being met while outside the earth's magnetic field.
: 6. A prolonged state of inactivity of magnetic bacteria within cells,
: such as when a bird's egg is not turned, or an infant is not carried,
: leads to energy levels too low to maintain life.
: 7. Periodic exposure to the magnetic field produced by A/C voltage
: causes poorly formed nuclear envelopes, within cells.
: 8. Through the proper use of magnetic fields, man may now achieve a
: higher degree of wellbeing, and travel farther through both time

What a pile of nonsence! Regarding womens cycle, stick to the pheromone
theory. I dont have any refs, but any university library should be able to
help you out.
Mr. Jackson, youre sick! Or maybe your magnetic bacteria inside (!) your
cells have lost track of 'time and space'. BTW, when did you perform your
No doubt megnetism plays some role in life, but the above is at best pure
fantasy, or even worse, somebodys attempt to create 'scientific' proof
for their 'WonderMagnets' $200 each to hang around your neck.
Furthermore, Mr. Jackson, the next time you feel like spreading your pseudo
science around, at least have the currage to include proper references AND
make a sharp distinction between what is YOUR ideas/theories and what is
I hope you get better soon,
