The high-speed Polaroid photograph has just emerged from the camera, revealing the places where my fingers have touched the film. Joe Hall, the president of Clarus Systems, a maker of "personal energy" products, notes that the outlines of my fingertips form a series of broken dots and not a continuous ellipsoid, indicating that my body¿s energy centers, or chakras, are not resonating properly.
Hall thinks I may have been exposed to excessive man-made electromagnetic radiation, which has increased, he informs me, 100-millionfold since 1940. Broadcasts of Lucille Ball and Don Imus no doubt bear the blame. But for $129, Hall is willing to sell me the Q-Link--a microchip equipped with an antenna-- that when worn around the neck brings one into "harmonic resonance."
