What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

I've discovered many scientific papers stating that static magnetic fields affect living cells.  Turns out that magnetism is a pure quantum effect.  Biology typically does not pay attention to quantum physics affecting biological processes (a.k.a. Quantum Biology).  The purpose of this model is to provide a computer simulation of living cells down to the atomic (proton/neutron particle spin) and quantum level (tunneling, entanglement, etc - theory is that these quantum characteristics allow permeation of cell membranes which would, according to standard science would not be permissible).  NOTE: These effects will only be approximated due to their complexity.  It will involve known mathematical algorithms.  It will allow the introduction of external forces, such as a magnetic field, electrostatic, or chemical, and allow researchers to see how the cells will react.  Eventually, the program could be built to allow researchers to test theoretical "what if" scenarios.  i.e.  What if, cell membranes, because of tunneling, allow electric signals, or chemicals, to pass the currently interpreted impenetrable membrane?  This will be programmed in the Microsoft Unity Gaming Engine.  It will utilize the groundwork done in "UnityMol", more info here (thanks to Marc Baaden and team):

The mayo clinic offers transcrainial magnetic stimulation to cure depression, they don't know why it works, this model may help explain it: 

http://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/transcranial-magnetic-stimulation/home/ovc-20163795

A long term goal for this dynamic modelling tool, is to allow it to incorporate any other biological related knowledge mankind may have or obtain, an internet of things {you might of say} of organism properties,  behaviors, and actions   (i.e. adding DNA into the mix and interacting with the other components i.e. Quantum effects).

Excerpts from a couple of the multitude of scientific papers I've read and have references to, that support my hypothesis and proposal:

Raymond R. Raylmain, Anaira C. Clavo and Richard L. Wahl from the Univerisity of Michigan Medical Center, studied exposure of strong static magnetic fields on three malignant human cell lines : HTB 63 (melanoma), HTB 77 IP3 (ovarian carcinoma) and CCL 86 (lymphoma). Their conclusion was that a exposure to a strong magnetic field inhibited the growth in vitro. They go on to state: “Future investigations of this phenomenon may have a significant impact on the future understanding and treatment of cancer.”

Nina Mikirova Ph.D., James A. Jackson MT (ASCP)CLS, Ph.D., and Joseph J. Casciari Ph.D. and Hugh D. Riordan M.D. offer a plausible explanation of the biological effect of electromagnetic fields: “Magnetic fields are thought to interfere with cytoplasm enzyme functions by modifying membrane permeability, modifying ion transport and/or ligand receptor interactions at the cell membrane surface. Normal cells and cancer cells have different electrical status. Experimental data has shown that growing cells are electrically negative and cancer cells are the most negative of all.”

References:

One explanation how magnetic fields affect living cells: "It is proposed that radical concentrations can be modified by combinations of weak, steady and alternating magnetic fields that modify the population distribution of the nuclear and electronic spin state, the energy levels and the alignment of the magnetic moments of the components of the radical pairs.

Risks and challenges

Because this has never been done before, it will be a difficult undertaking. Quantum physics has only begun to gain acceptance in mainstream science, and there most likely will be resistance to the notion. I will most likely have to hire the services of physicists, biologists, mathematicians, and programmers. Also, the concepts, math, and number of components in the proposed dynamic model are intense, but my motto is, for every problem there is a solution, so I'll knock it out of the park. I feel that my 25 years of I.T. experience has prepared me to pull off this diffucult challenge. It has the potential of winning the Nobel prize, as three scientists developed a computer model for chemistry and won the Nobel prize:
