Introduction: Our previous studies described ingress as well as egress images induced by magnetized fine iron particles attracted to the inherent electromagnetic activity of plant and animal tissues. Herein we tested whether electromagnetic activity of single cell plants can migrate across physical barriers.

Methods: Culture media of the unicellular plants, Euglena gracilis, was drawn into glass capillary tubes and sealed with a wax plug at either end. Each tube was painted with black ink to exclude light and four painted tubes were taped together. Each set of 4 blackened capillary tubes were immersed in a vial half-filled with either spring water or tap water. As a control an unpainted set of four tubes was immersed in spring water (3 sets, n=7). A similar experiment was set up with painted and unpainted, sealed micro-tubes containing Euglena cells (n=7). The surrounding liquid from each vial was examined microscopically every 24 hours.

Results: The liquid sampled from the vials containing the blackened capillary tubes in spring water showed Euglena organisms in all 14 experiments at days 1-5, but only 2/14 in the vials with tap water and 0/14 containing the unpainted capillary or micro-tubes, ANOVA, p≤0.05.

Conclusions: Euglena cells, confined in blackened glass capillary tubes or plastic micro-tubes were spontaneously transferred into the surrounding lighted solutions containing spring water but not from unpainted tubes. We propose that electromagnetic forms of these organisms can pass through physical barriers from unfavorable to more favorable environments. Journal of Nature and Science (JNSCI), 4(4):e496, 2018
