Itâ€™s just a hypothesis, and itâ€™s not yet certain that bacteria do transmit such signals. But according to Northeastern University physicist Allan Widom, calculations based on the properties of DNA and electrons square with whatâ€™s been measured.
â€œFor a long time, there have been signals in water. Something is happening around a kilohertz,â€ said Widom, lead author of a paper posted Apr. 15 on the preprint website arXiv. You have to look for natural energy levels in the system that would give you a kilohertz frequency. With the lengths of DNA and the mass of the electron, you get the right frequency range for these signals.â€
