William Tiller’s Experiment with Subtle Energy & Photography

Subtle energy is still an elusive force in that we have not quite managed to detect it directly using  conventional scientific instruments. The best we can do is witness and record its very real effects on the world around it. Despite the current denial of the existence of subtle energy in the mainstream narrative, leading scientists still engage in the pursuit of discovering more about life force energy. 

One such figure is William A. Tiller, Ph.D.. He theorizes that there is a link between consciousness and the subtle energy that flows in the world surrounding us. Tiller worked as a professor of science and engineering at Stanford University, and went on to found the Institute for Psychoenergetic Science. He has published over 250 scientific papers, and authored 7 books, with much of his work focusing on Psychoenergetic Science, or the relationship between human consciousness and subtle energy.


“For the last four hundred years, an unstated assumption of science is that human intention cannot affect what we call ‘physical reality.’ Our experimental research of the past decade shows that, for today’s world and under the right conditions, this assumption is no longer correct. We humans are much more than we think we are and Psychoenergetic Science continues to expand the proof of it.” – William A. Tiller, Ph.D.


William Tiller conducted one study on the effect of subtle energy on the appearance of light in photographs – a phenomenon known as paranormal light bending. The energy photography process involves allowing someone who is known to be able to produce a great deal of subtle energy to hold and “charge” a camera. This is not the same as electrically charging something – this is a process of concentrating subtle energy into the object. 

A control camera which was not charged in this way was set up beside it. Both cameras were placed on stationary tripods and a series of simultaneous photos were taken. The resulting photos had striking differences. The camera that was not charged with subtle energy produced photos with no abnormalities. However, there was something strange happening with light in the images produced by the camera that had received the energy.

In these images, the light sources would trail, or appear to bend. Figures would either show up multiple times, become transparent, or in some cases, even disappear. The explanation as to why subtle energy has this light bending effect on photography has yet to be determined, although the key to understanding it may be found in the relationship between light and subtle energy itself.
