Wireless Electromagnetic Communication Systems between Bacteria in Communities
Bacteria, very old on an evolutionary scale, can live within agricultural soils wiredtogether into communities. The information content transferred through the wires is not yetentirely clear. It has recently been discovered that, younger on the evolutionary scale, E. colibacteria can live in communities with wireless communication systems. E. coli bacteria containDNA macromolecules in the form of a closed loops. The DNA molecules are coated with coherentwater shells having semiconducting properties. The electron energy levels when moving withinthe DNA water shells can be invoked to explain the broadcast and reception frequency spectraof the wireless bacterial systems.
