The specific diameter of microtubules was shown to be a primary solution when magnetic energy was set equal to Casimir energy. To discern if this spatial containment could be foci for information photon emissions were measured from preparations of microtubules (MTs) while they were exposed in sequential 4 min intervals to various patterns of weak magnetic fields whose intensities ranged from 3 to 10 μT. Calculations from the median mass of a tubulin dimer, its summed charges and the applied magnetic field as well as the change in magnetic moment derived from the energy of the hydrogen line when applied to our experimental fields predicted a dynamic shift (Δf) between 0.03 and 0.21 Hz. Spectral power densities (SPD) indicated marked enhancements in photon numbers during periods of magnetic field exposures within the 7.6 to 7.8 Hz increment. The total SPD units for the shift were 10-18 to 10-17 J per s. Five of the eight patterns elicited a split spectrum of power within this range. Separate factor analyses of the SPDs of the serial values that composed the points of the actual field patterns indicated those that evoked the split-spectrum (Δf = 0.05 to 0.13 Hz) displayed significantly higher loadings on the same factor compared to those that did not. If this shift in photon energy reflects a phase modulation of the coherence frequency (8 MHz) of MTs, the increment of energy per MHz frequency would be within the energy of the neutral hydrogen line. These results suggest that the intrinsic structure or information from specific intensity magnetic fields when applied to MTs is reflected in photon energy densities vacillating around the fundamental Schumann Resonance that could be an interface between Casimir and magnetic sources.
