thanks for your kindness (many find my skepticism irritating). All forms of energy I know of (chemical, gravitational, electrical, magnetic, heat, and nuclear) operate according to the same rules for both living and dead mass. Kirlian Photography was big in the 70's and many groups investigated it. It is done by providing high voltage low current electrical energy via at least one electrically charged plate. This causes electrical current flow in a context where light is given off in proportion to current flow - which is merely in proportion to the conductivity of the object under examination. You can buy these wonderful glass spheres in science stores where you put your hands on the edge and see really cool lines of glowing ionized gas going to the edge of the glass. Same general principal - it's eerie but not paranormal. Stories still persist today that the glow is from flows of life force or that only living objects react. This is simply not true - just hold a piece of metal up to one of those spheres, or do Kirlian photography of it - you'll see plenty of activity. There were hopes that Kirlian photography could be used for medical diagnosis. Some surface problems can be seen with it. But the whole effect is very dependent on air conditions and surface moisture. It just never panned out the way people had hoped.
