He is the author of more than 130 technical reports and papers. He has written The Secret Vaults of Time, The Alexandria Project, Mind Rover, Opening to the Infinite, and The 8 Laws of Change.
Here he develops the idea that psychic and spiritual healing is an informational process, rather than an energetic process. He describes, in detail, a research study he conducted involving infrared spectroscopic analysis of water. The water was not the target of healing intention, but it was in the proximity of healers who were working on patients. Specific, consistent measurements in the electrical bonding of water molecules was observed — suggesting an informational process at work. Schwartz also describes some of the dramatic, human effects of the healing research.
