Abstract

The effects of extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields on living systems are reported and discussed in the framework of evolutionary physics. The discussion is focused on: (a) new epistemological points of view related to the relationship between Prigogine's thermodynamics and evolutionary biology; (b) the relevance of Gödel's theorem on scientific modelling; (c) an attempt to take steps towards an evolutionary medicine. Particular emphasis has been dedicated to the role of sounds, water and clinical response and to the self-organisation action, which can be related to the capacity of human beings to use their own defences to reactivate lost mechanisms.
