The valency electrons in calculation are Ga: 3[d.sup.10]4[s.sup.2]4[p.sup.1],N:2[s.sup.2]2[p.sup.3].
This paper argues from the evidence of studies revealing a loss of control of biochemical function, that the controller is clearly a non-local energy phenomenon and that the various energy types involved exercise control by subtle wavelength-difference behavior exerted on the valency electrons of atoms coordinated at the Fermi surface.
