THE SECRET OF LIFE By Georges Lakhovsky
DEDICATION To the memory of one who came before. This was a GIANT upon whose shoulders we can now stand and see. In great appreciation and honor I dedicate this volume pertaining to THE SECRET OF LIFE to Georges Lakhovsky. His work has been deliberately BURIED. His work was written in French and therefore there is humble appreciation to translators and colleagues who offered input on the most fundamental concept of LIFE ITSELF. And to my team who dares to present these hidden truths—I humbly bow. The world shall surely be able to rise from prison and enslavement into freedom and knowing—because of your boldness. The time is at hand for the realization of TRUTH as it now rises through the entropy of the eons come before. LIFE IS BUT LIGHT IN RADIANCE AND THEREFORE ALL THINGS HAVE POWER AND RECOGNITION THROUGH THE LIGHTED THOUGHT OF GOD (LIGHT). LIGHT IS, TRUTH IS, LIFE IS—GOD IS! Gyeorgos Ceres Hatonn
Hatonn: I offer great appreciation and humble recognition of one who presented great wisdom and discernment in revealing his perceptions of THE SECRET OF LIFE. He was named Georges Lakhovsky. The material which we will offer is brought forth in translation from French. I might add that every time a language is translated into another—much is lost and more is mistranslated. The original language of Georges Lakhovsky was not French so we already KNOW that there are errors and additions. This is fine for I shall offer what I can as nearly identically in print as possible and my comments, as usual, shall be in brackets, i.e. [H: ]. I would like to start here with the INTRODUCTION to his presentation, by himself. He has called his volume Secrets of Life. I would prefer a more accurate title of MYSTERIES OF LIFE AND LIGHT or even, Disclosing the Mysteries of Life and Light. Life and/or Light have no “secrets”, only mystery. [H: This book has no copyright and neither does it have information as to how to obtain a copy. It seems to have first found its way into print circa 1930s, revised in 1951 and all signs of reprinting are shown as 1970 at which time we assume it was translated into English and also bears the “revisions” above noted. The translation was done by a Mark Clement and this will, it appears, represent the second “revised” edition. Reprinting of the work seems to have been done in or around 1970 by what is listed only as Health Research, California. (Mokelumne Hill).] INTRODUCTION I SHOULD like to indicate in some way in this introduction the philosophy of my new theory which forms the theme of the present work. What is the use of propounding a new theory of life? From the beginning of the world have not philosophy and science professed to enlighten us in that respect? What remains of these well-meaning efforts? To the philosopher, and particularly to the metaphysician, I will not attempt to prove the use of a new conception. They know better than I do with what avidity we all welcome the hope of a clearer explanation, the hope of progress in knowledge of the absolute. The craving of the human desire is enough to justify the novelty of a hypothesis. It is the average man, and especially the man of science, that I want to convince. Human knowledge of a positive character is not solely made up, as some would have us believe, of a mass of experimental facts. These facts, by themselves, are worth nothing without the idea which consolidates, arranges and classifies them. The future of science lies essentially, in its dynamic sense, in the expansion of its fundamental concepts, that is to say in scientific hypothesis. Every science is an experimental field whose interrelations with neighboring fields, that is to say with other sciences, are more or less unusual and difficult to interpret. Medicine, biology, the natural sciences, are intimately related and their ramifications extend to the domain of chemistry. On the other hand, they seem to be still separated, sometimes by watertight compartments, from the physical sciences, notably from electricity and radioelectricity. [H: This is your “Electric Universe” brought forth from Light in every instance but presented in various and sundry forms.] Every progress in the evolution of knowledge shows a new point of view and enables us to explore further the whole field of different sciences, to know their various states of advancement, to observe their mutual relations and the assistance they can render one another. The most recent discoveries in physics have enabled us to reduce to unity the various phenomena susceptible of analysis through the study of all known radiations. This new field is singularly fertile if one bears in mind that all the most recent discoveries in physics, and consequently in the applied sciences, belong to the domain of radiations: Ionic, electronic and atomic; the usual electro-magnetic radiations, radio-electricity, wireless telegraphy and telephony. Up till now this original conception of radiation, which seems to be the basis of all positive knowledge, has been confined to the realm of the physical sciences and, apart from an incursion into industry, it has not made any important contribution to the natural sciences whose development appears to be limited to that of organic chemistry. I believe that the time has come to extend the field and the resources of biology by utilizing new instruments based on the latest advance of the physical sciences. My theory of the origin of life, which forms the theme of the present work, stands for this new concept uniting two domains of science hitherto kept apart. 2
Numerous hypotheses, on which I shall not insist, have been advanced to explain the origin of life and various biological phenomena. Let us point out that the most recent of such hypotheses attempt to simplify the problem by reducing these complex phenomena to purely chemical or mechanical phenomena. In view of the unprecedented development of the new discoveries in physics, the latest biological hypotheses appear to be somewhat too simple. Moreover, from the point of view of a higher criterion, they do not give a satisfactory explanation of certain fundamental phenomena which my theory succeeds in doing. Let us glance at some of those obscure points in biology which we wish to elucidate. Among the most carefully studied facts by naturalists and entomologists, we find all those which are related to the problem of instinct or special sense of animals; in spite of the accumulation of experimental data, accurate and indisputable, no clear explanation has yet been given of instinct. My theory of radiation of living beings, confirmed by conclusive experiments, is in perfect harmony with the facts in question whose hidden significance is also made clear. Similarly, the role of orientation in the flight of birds, the problem of migration, are explicable by the phenomena of auto-electrification in living beings. UNIVERSAL RADIATION IN LIVING BEINGS What then is this universal radiation in living beings? My theory expounds in simple terms its fundamental principles and discloses its nature. In deriving support from the most recent discoveries in the domain of radiations, my theory demonstrates, with the aid of elementary analogies, that the cell, essential organic unit in all living beings, is nothing but an electromagnetic resonator, capable of emitting and absorbing radiations of very high frequency. [H: Emphasis mine.] These fundamental principles cover the whole field of biology. WHAT IS LIFE? What is Life? It is the dynamic equilibrium of all cells, the harmony of multiple radiations which react upon one another. WHAT IS DISEASE? What is disease? It is the oscillatory disequilibrium of cells, originating from external causes. It is, more especially, the struggle between microbic radiation and cellular radiation. For the microbe, unicellular organism, acts also by virtue of its radiation. If microbic radiation is predominant, disease is the result, and when vital resistance is completely overcome, death occurs. If cellular radiation gains the ascendant, restoration of health follows. [H: This is extremely important, readers.] The importance of my theory becomes more apparent in view of the confirmation of its validity as shown by recent experiments on cancerous plants. The recorded cures would seem to give new hope in the treatment of cancer, that terrible disease against which we appear to be struggling in vain. The practical application of my theory, which enables the cells to regain the full vital activity of their radiations, will, in my opinion, give rise to a specific treatment of cancer, in particular, and be equally applicable to diseases due to old age in general. Apart from its immediate practical applications, my theory may be said to explain, thanks to the role played by penetrating radiations, the process of the origin of life, the differentiation of cells and of living species, the phenomenon of heredity, in a word all the great problems whose totality constitutes the biological sciences. I have quite intentionally given a very simple form to the account of my theory, so that it may be understood by all those who have the desire to probe further into the mysteries of science. I have excluded from it any unnecessary phraseology as well as most of the technical terms that cumber the vocabulary of biology and electricity. The technical terms used in the text of the present work are familiar to all radio listeners. Of such I may single out self-inductance which characterizes the electro-magnetic induction of a circuit; capacity characterizing its electrostatic induction; electric resistance which signifies opposition of the circuit to the passage of current; wavelength and frequency which characterize the nature of radiation. Mathematical formulae have likewise been omitted. All relevant scientific explanations are given in footnotes which, however, are not indispensable for understanding the main facts. 3
My only wish is that my work may be understood by all, even by those who are not familiar with scientific literature. I shall be more than gratified if I have succeeded in my attempt. Georges Lakhovsky (When France was invaded by German troops, Lakhovsky, being a prominent anti-Nazi, was forced to leave Paris and escaped to New York, where he died in 1942 at the age of 73 [Translator].) Hatonn: I believe you can see why this work is buried or offered in misinformation-circles to render it quite impotent— just as has been the work of such as Walter Russell, Nikola Tesla and others of great inspiration and insight. You cannot control a world if you do not control thought, knowledge and expression. It is not that truth is NOT—it is that truth in understanding is BURIED AND HIDDEN from you. While work is presented, the focus is usually changed into some Spiritual GARBAGE with no reality in concept or intent. While you search for energy through “light” and insight through “physical” misdirection—YOU LOSE. Further, anytime you have ones of great and inspired information falling to the J.P. Morgans (Tesla), the Brookings Institute of the Tavistock Institute in London, or information of totally manufactured misinformation offered (Einstein), you have no way to comprehend either Self or the Universe—much the less your Spiritual TRUTH. We shall attempt here to allow you integration of concepts and we shall avoid, at all possible times, intervention or interference with those who have TAKEN the gifts of the greatly inspired receivers and now use them as their own through the inappropriately utilized “laws” of the land and Man. It is never the original great thinkers and presenters of truth who are the culprits—they are the victims of the thieves of their proprietary property. It is quite sad that greedy man keeps truth from humanity that you might not find balance, harmony and wondrous expression. The Lords of the Land of Physical shall NOT PREVAIL— save to continue as long as they can to STOP TRUTH from revelation unto you whom they would control. The “Overlords” and the magnificently CREATIVE “Overmind” shall prevail for, once moved into “knowing”, there cannot in the same place be “unknowing”—only deliberate refusal to accept that knowledge. Forgetting is the hazard of the physical plane coupled with the deliberate deception of “evil”. “Evil” IS, “Good” IS, and I make no judgment on either—for one is opposite in intent of the other and there can be no relative comparison except in perception—which is individual at best. I can offer reality in truth but what you do with it does not rest with ME—it rests solely upon YOU. I believe we shall enjoy this journey together into the remembering and recognition, along with appreciation to the GIANTS WHO CAME BEFORE US IN THIS SEGMENT OF EVENTS RECOGNIZED IN YOUR LIMITATION AS “TIME” AND “SPACE”. We greatly honor the “spirits” of those who came before and we welcome all input. We shall not, however, refer to them in first person speech for the academic allowance of such TRUTH is beyond the available limitations of either your courts or your academically limited colleges and universities, whether by tax-free associations or legal injustice. Legal injustice is but the totally ignorant manipulation by the Masters of the Puppets in their limited environments, usually through blackmail and bribery and always the offering of some type of POWER to express over another that they consider “lesser”. These who gain through power of force via legal manipulation are the least of the species for they have no other manner of measuring themselves and fall lacking in every category of human expression save the adversarial counterpart of God. This is becoming far too lengthy so let us allow closure and rest and we shall move on, as we can do so, deeper into these subjects of Life and Light and the wondrous mysteries which are only elusive to full understanding, nothing more. Ah, the wondrous beauty of the mind, open for learning. Nothing in the Universe or Cosmic Realms can surpass the wonder of mind in SOUL as it responds to its capability to achieve ALL. Salu.

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS The nature of instinct or special sense which naturalists have studied in animals is, without doubt, one of the most puzzling and complex problems confronting the modern physiologist. It reflects, under its most strange and least explored aspect, the whole problem of life. Yet, in spite of great difficulties in the field of observation, accurate data on this subject have been recorded from time to time. In this matter, the experimental method is practically restricted to direct observation, and more often than not laboratory experiments are out of the question. Various hypotheses have been advanced to explain the observed and controlled results, but it would seem that up to the present no general theory has yet been enunciated which would cover all the available data and at the same time give a logical and comprehensive explanation. In this connection the uninterrupted progress of science is suggestive of certain new ideas which have enabled me to elaborate my theory of the origin of life and of radiation in relation to living beings, forming the subject of the present work which began to appear from 1923 onwards in various periodicals. THE INSTINCT OF ORIENTATION At the outset I devoted my attention to investigating the causes of the ease with which certain animals succeeded in finding their bearings so unerringly during the longest voyages. Such are carrier pigeons, which return to their dove-cot after having flown a few hundred miles. Another example is migrating birds, which fly in a straight line day and night, speeding across the seas towards a definite destination that they cannot possibly perceive, partly because of their limited visual powers and partly because of the curvature of the earth’s surface. They emigrate to feed on insects that they can no longer find in our latitudes at the approach of winter. Some say that this is sheer instinct, while others prefer to call it special sense, but neither term explains the riddle. I hold that in science nothing should be mysterious. Such terms as instinct and special sense merely mask our ignorance and it should be possible to account for everything. It seems more and more evident, as the following observations make it clear, that the sense of direction originates from special radiations of ultra-short wave-length, emitted by the birds and insects themselves. Carrier Pigeons. We have all heard of the truly wonderful powers of orientation possessed by carrier pigeons. Although this faculty is innate it nevertheless requires a certain training before it is fully developed. After the bird has risen in the air and circled round a few times, this faculty of orientation enables it, without hesitation, even at night, to fly towards its dove-cot, which is sometimes far away. I have noticed the prevalence of this phenomenon and have ventured to give an explanation of it in the present work: all birds about to undertake long migration voyages (wild ducks, wild water-fowls, swallows, etc.) invariably describe, like carrier pigeons, a series of orbits in the air before starting on their final flight. A most interesting observation made on July 2nd, 1924, at the radio station of Paterna, near Valencia (Spain), came to my notice. A flock of pigeons had just been released near an aerial of this station at the time of transmission. It was then observed that these birds could not manage to find their bearings and kept on flying in a circular fashion, as if completely disorientated. This experiment was repeated several times and always produced the same result, that is to say the disappearance, or rather a very marked perturbation of the sense of direction in carrier pigeons under the influence of electromagnetic waves. [H: And what of your beached whales?] These experiments were taken up again at Paterna, at the radio station of Valencia, under the control of the Spanish military authorities [in 1925], and also at Kreuznach (Germany). These fresh experiments fully confirmed my views concerning the influence of hertzian waves on the instinct of orientation. 5
A Spanish scientist, M.J. Casamajor, wrote a detailed report on the Paterna experiments. The Spanish carrier pigeon service installed a military carrier pigeon station at Valencia, at a distance of about 8 kilometers from the radio station of Paterna. At the time of the experiment in question pigeons were released one by one at regular intervals of three minutes near the station while transmission was taking place continuously. It was observed that all the pigeons began to fly by circling around for some time, but without succeeding in finding their bearings as they usually do after having flown round a few times. In spite of a change of wavelength in the course of transmission, no return to the normal condition was observed, and so long as transmission occurred, and it lasted more than half an hour, no pigeons succeeded in flying in a definite direction. It is important to note that barely a few minutes after the transmission was over the released pigeons flew towards their dove-cot without the least hesitation, even those which had taken part in the first experiment. Another series of experiments which took place on November 7th, 1926, in the same locality produced the same result. The original experiments at Paterna put investigators on their mettle, for they could not understand the relation existing between the instinct of pigeons and the transmission of electromagnetic waves. The German technicians hastened to verify and control Casamajor’s observations. In March, 1926, they initiated a series of experiments similar to those carried out in Kreuznach; the conditions, however, were different and more rigorous. A site was chosen so that the dove-cot and the radio station were diametrically opposed. Consequently this station was situated exactly as the crow flies on the course that the pigeons were bound to take. On arriving near the radio station it was noticed that the pigeons changed their flight, were losing their bearings and appeared to be definitely disorientated. They did not succeed in resuming their course towards the dove-cot until their flying had brought them outside the intense electromagnetic field surrounding the aerial of the radio station. It is noteworthy that the simplest explanation of this phenomenon does not seem to have occurred to any of the Spanish, French and German experimenters, namely that of electromagnetic induction on the pigeons’ directive organs. They were all baffled by the significance of the phenomenon which they attributed to a curious anomaly that they could not explain. NOCTURNAL BIRDS The Bat. The observations made on carrier pigeons appear to hold good for nocturnal birds also. It seems obvious, a priori, that the sensibility of these birds to electromagnetic waves in general is different from that of diurnal birds by virtue of their special adaptation to light or darkness. These two species of birds, however, show a common feature, they feed on the same insects. We are led to believe, as we shall see later, that they are attracted to their prey by radiations emitted by these insects. There is little doubt that daylight has an influence on the propagation of these variations. If sunlight absorbs them, as it does in the case of wireless waves, nocturnal birds (various species of owls) should go hunting at night because their sensibility to reception, so far as these radiations are concerned, is less developed than that of diurnal birds. Conversely, if sunlight increases the amplitude of radiations, as seems to be the case for waves measuring several meters, then it is the excess of intensity of the radiations which would prevent nocturnal birds to go hunting during the day. In this matter of sensibility of reception to special radiations, one is justified in assuming the existence of correlative differences in the organs of sight, as observed in diurnal and nocturnal birds. Among nocturnal birds, let us take the bat as an example. It is commonly believed that it is to the acuity of the senses of hearing and smell that the bat owes ability of approaching its prey whose least movements it can detect, thanks to the vibrations of the air reaching its ears. This hypothesis may be admissible under certain conditions such as the calm atmosphere of the countryside. In Paris I have often watched bats from my balcony, on racing days, amid the uproar of a great crowd and the noise of thousands of cars setting up vibrations in the air, saturated with the products of petrol combustion. Amid this deafening din and vitiated atmosphere it is neither the sense of smell nor that of hearing that guides the bat straight towards insects (cockchafers, moths, etc.) which they catch as easily as in the undisturbed silence of the countryside. The bat is thus most probably attracted to these insects by the radiations they emit, which are not influenced by noise nor by petrol fumes. 6
Lemmings. This is another extraordinary example: the lemming, a kind of field-mouse whose habitat is in Scandinavian regions. The famous Swedish naturalist, Linnaeus, gave an account of their peculiar expeditions. “At the approach of severe cold weather and sometimes without any apparent reason, lemmings leave their natural habitat in the high mountains of Norway in order to make a long voyage towards the sea. The emigrating throng, consisting of myriads of individuals, trots in a straight line across all obstacles without ever letting itself be diverted from its goal. While proceeding in Indian file they trace retilinear parallel furrows, two fingers deep and several yards apart. They devour anything obstructing their passage, such as herbs and roots. Nothing diverts them from their route. If a man should come across their path they run between his legs. If they meet a haystack, they gnaw their way through; if it should be a rock, they go round it in a semicircle and resume their straight course. Should a lake impede their progress they swim across it in a straight line, whatever its size may be. Is a boat in the way? They climb over it and dive into the water on the other side. A strong current in a river does not stop them, even at the risk of annihilation.” In his text-book on Zoology, Sedgwick wrote, “The Scandinavian lemming migrates in a straight line in enormous herds, crossing all obstacles till it reaches the sea into which it plunges in the continuance of its wandering and is drowned.” Is it possible that these animals are guided in their straight course by their sense of smell or hearing? They perceive smells and noises coming from all directions. Is it not simpler to suggest that these lemmings, although feeding on roots and seeds, and needing an occasional addition of small fishes, travel towards the sea, guided by the radiations emanating from the shoals of fishes upon which they feed? Furthermore, glow-worms, micro-organisms in decomposing meat, fire-flies, etc., emit luminous radiations. And so, too, with certain animalculae whose presence in innumerable masses makes the sea phosphorescent. It is also common knowledge that certain fishes known as torpedo-fishes, give off electricity. Thus an elementary intuitive generalization would seem to establish the fact that certain animals emit radiations which we cannot perceive, but whose effects are far-reaching. ROLE OF SEMI-CIRCULAR CANALS IN BIRDS AND OF ANTENNAE IN INSECTS Some naturalists have stated that the semi-circular canals of the ear, in many species, are endowed with special directing properties. If these organs are removed, the operated birds invariably lose their sense of equilibrium and turn round and round, as though stupefied and incapable of taking a definite direction. Assuredly here is an interesting observation. But another observation of the highest importance has been made by scientists. The fluid contained in the semi-circular canals consists of insulating material. Now, any wireless transmitter creates a variable electromagnetic field whose action makes itself felt at considerable distances. In view of this fact we may well ask ourselves whether a great number of living creatures do not obtain their bearings through the agency of waves similar to those transmitted by radio stations. The semi-circular canals are susceptible of playing the role of a radiogoniometric receiver. In wireless, a radioniometer is a kind of directional receiving apparatus. The very conformation of the semi-circular canals appears to support this hypothesis. They are arranged in three planes, each of which is at right angles to the other two so that in the semi-circular canals the three planes of space are represented. Such a scheme constitutes a system of co-ordinates (a system of lines by means of which the position of a point is determined.), necessary and adequate to determine the position of a point in space, or, in the case under consideration, the position of a bird in the atmosphere or yet the position of an insect in relation to the bird [see Figure 1]. Fig. 1, pg. 41 Animals in general, and birds in particular, do not move in a horizontal plane but in a three-dimensional space and the semi-circular canals have been devised accordingly. The conducting fluid contained in these canals constitutes a directions-receiving circuit completed by an accessory circuit in the form of a pliable spiral (self-conductance and tuning capacity). In the strange world of insects many of them possess minute antennae enabling them to follow their course in a straight line towards relatively distant points. Nature does nothing in vain; these antennae would seem to exist only for the purpose of receiving radiations [see Figure 2]. 7
Fig. 2, pg 42 The similarity between the antennae of the insects and the aerials of radio stations is striking, but this similarity, however, is not as simple as it would appear at first sight. Owing to their relatively considerable dimensions in relation to the emitted radiations, the antennae of insects function in the manner of complex oscillators vibrating with the frequency of harmonics of a far higher scale than their fundamental wavelength. NOCTURNAL EXPERIMENTS WITH THE GREAT PEACOCK-BUTTERFLY Let us consider, by way of example, the Bombyx, in the light of observations made by Fabre in his work entitled “Maeurs des insectes”. In the laboratory, soon after the emergence of a female from the chrysalis, Fabre observed that, at night, a whole swarm of males invaded the place, which leads us to suppose that this female was endowed with a certain “nocturnal capacity”. Fabre also pointed out the difficulties of access to his laboratory surrounded by a multitude of trees. In spite of these obstacles the males always succeeded in reaching the female. The following day the same phenomenon was observed; it all seemed as if the sense of smell had been guiding the moths. Fabre then gives an account of experiments which shatter this hypothesis. In the first place, the moths of this species, known as the Great Peacock, are well-nigh impossible to be found under normal circumstances. Thus the males must have come from a very distant site. Sound, light and the sense of smell are out of the question, for the moth makes straight for the cage in spite of a variety of scents intentionally diffused by the experimenter in order to lead the insects astray. The factor of place memory may be ruled out as irrelevant. Fabre also remarked that the moths were travelling in the same direction as the wind. It follows that if they had been guided by the sense of smell they would have had to soar with the wind in order to catch the scented air. [PJ Ed. Note: Backwards as it appears, that is exactly how it reads.] [E.Y. Editor’s note: Not backwards at all, but a problem of translation. What he means is that the moths would have to travel into the wind to follow the scent to the source.] DIRURNAL EXPERIMENTS WITH THE OAK-BOMBYX In order to ascertain the influence of sunlight Fabre experimented in full daylight by studying the habits of the oak-bombyx, whose diurnal activities are more pronounced. But this insect, like the Great Peacock, is not to be found in the region where Fabre was working. How are we to account for the fact that it was able to come from its distant habitat? The males hurried along and found the female locked up in a drawer or under a framework covered by a cloth, in spite of nauseating effluvia emanating from all sorts of odoriferous substances placed there by the experimenter. According to Fabre, the following experiment would seem to confirm the olfactory sense hypothesis. “I placed the female in a bell-glass and gave her a slender oak twig with withered leaves as a support. The glass was set upon a table facing the open window. On entering the room the moths could not fail but see the prisoner as she was placed directly in their way. Without premeditation I placed it at the other end of the room, on the floor, in a corner where but little light could penetrate, about ten steps away from the window. “The outcome of these preparations completely upset my notions. None of the arriving insects stopped at the bell-glass where the female was plainly to be seen in full daylight. They passed on as though indifferent. Not a glance, nothing to put one on the track. They all flew to the further end of the room into the dark corner where I had placed the tray and the bell-glass. They alighted on the wire dome... All the afternoon, until sunset, the moths danced about the empty cage a saraband which the real presence of the female would normally evoke... Finally they departed, but not all. There were some who would not go, as if held there by some magical force. Truly a strange result. The moths collected where there was apparently nothing... What had deceived them? All the preceding night and all the morning the female had remained under the wire-gauze cover, sometimes clinging to the wirework, sometimes resting on the sand in the tray. Whatever she touched, above all, apparently, with her distended abdomen, was impregnated, following a long contact, with certain emanations. This was her lure, her love-philter. This it was that revolutionized the insect world. The sand retained these emanations for some time and diffused the effluvia in turn. Thus it is the olfactory sense that guides the moths and warns them far off... The irresistible philter 8
requires time for its elaboration. I imagine it as an exhalation which is gradually given off and saturates whatever is in contact with the motionless body of the female... With these data in hand and unexpected information resulting from them, I varied the experiments, but all pointed in the same direction. In the morning I placed the female under the wire-gauze cover; for support an oak twig was provided. There, motionless, as if dead, she lay for hours, buried under a cluster of leaves which would thus become impregnated with her emanations. When the hour of the daily inspection drew near, I removed the twig and put it on a chair not far from the open window. I left the female under the bell-glass, plainly exposed on the table in the middle of the room. The moths arrived as usual... They hesitated... They were still searching. Finally they found something, and what did they find? Just the twig . . . With their wings rapidly fluttering they alighted on the foliage exploring it all over, probing, raising and displacing it until at the last the twig fell on the ground. Nevertheless, they continued probing between the leaves.” From his experiments Fabre concluded that these moths were endowed with a sense of smell very different from ours and characteristic of their species. Fabre’s conclusion fails to satisfy me. The act of smelling is dependent on material particles which excite the olfactory sense, but the diffusion of these particles is limited to a short radius in the atmosphere. Thus it is not due to these particles that the moths were enabled to fly long distances. I thought it fit, therefore, to repeat these experiments. In my view, what attracts the males towards the female in the case of the Great Peacock and the Bombyx, is not the splendor of her colored mantle and her velvet wings, nor is it the odoriferous particles. It is rather the infinitesimal particles given off by her ovaries, micro-organic cells radiating according to a scale of determined wavelengths and exciting in the males the desire of procreation. This hypothesis is confirmed by the following experiment which I carried out myself. NEW EXPERIMENTS WITH THE OAK-BOMBYX After the emergence of the female from the chrysalis, a host of males rushed from all directions. After having left during the night this female lying on a leaf of cotton wool, I removed her the following day at noon. Then I placed, at a distance of about 5 meters from the female, the cotton-wool leaf on which the males came to rest again. I repeated this experiment after having this time dipped the cotton wool in a solution of pure alcohol, and I observed that the males stopped coming. The same result was obtained when corrosive sublimate was used instead of alcohol. Now, neither pure alcohol nor corrosive sublimate could have had the least effect on the odoriferous effluvia. On the other hand, these solutions had destroyed by sterilization the living cells which gave off the radiations that attracted the moths. BURYING-BEETLES (NECROPHORUS) The activities of these beetles on the decomposing bodies of dead rats and birds also appear to confirm my theory. As some naturalists have remarked, these insects play a hygienic part in the economy of nature, in fields and woods; they scavenge upon death for the benefit of life. They belong to a certain species of insects which attack dead bodies and devour them until they have restored into the cycle of life this inanimate organic matter. The burying-beetle is essentially a grave-digger, sometimes traveling distances to reach the dead bodies of rats and birds which it buries by degrees into the earth so that they may ultimately serve as food for its offspring destined to be born on the same site. The extraordinary social life of these beetles might be described at length. Let us confine ourselves to a characteristic which is relevant to our theory, the fact that they know how to direct themselves across great distances towards the dead bodies of rats and birds. Is it likely that they are guided by the sense of smell? If dead bodies give off odors, the odoriferous particles cannot be diffused beyond a range of a few meters. This hypothesis is inadmissible, in the case of burying-beetles, as in other cases, in view of the great distances that have to be covered. 9
It is also important to observe that the beetles do not appear until eight to ten days after the death of birds or rats, when their bodies are in a state of decomposition. It would seem, therefore, that it is the micro-organisms arising out of this decomposition and oscillating according to a predetermined scale of wavelengths, which direct the burying-beetles or their offspring towards their food. Hatonn: I hope that with the prior lectures on the topic of light and sound that you by now realize there is a VIBRATION and FREQUENCY to every cell of any “thing”, living or presumed dead. Nothing is dead in actuality. Note that even the “dying” elements of the invisible rays emit frequency and vibrations, i.e., Xray. Note also, that in those higher-highest (recognized) ray-frequencies, most things cannot survive the bombardment. Therefore, is it not also becoming apparent that through “frequencies”, seen or unseen, “Light”, seen or invisible—are the answers for your own life-frequencies and the eradication of that which you call “dis-ease”? Further, a substance such as uranium can be quite harmless, even beneficial in breaking down stone into soil, yet becomes quite deadly when taken in its refined form. This is why it is obvious that taking these harmless things and using them unwisely—is committing suicide for your species while allowing the more dangerous species to evolve ever more corruptly and significantly. In every moment, every “thing” is a vibration frequency of LIGHT. All is LIGHT! If you would read the aura emitted electrically from your very body and play it on an instrument of sound—would YOU make an anthem of beauty or simply a noise of great depressive tones? Would your recording be of wondrous harmony or simply a twisted and dreary repetition of distress signals? The soul emissions will call Satan, or Christ, for your signal traverses the entire Universe. Do you attract and emit goodness or evil? Better be checking.
CHAPTER II AUTO-ELECTRIFICATION IN LIVING BEINGS [Electrification by Friction of Wings in the Atmosphere; Influence of Electrical Capacity in Birds; The Role of Orientation in the Flight of Birds; Explanation of Migration; Extension of Principle to Wingless Animals.] ELECTRIFICATION BY FRICTION OF WINGS IN THE ATMOSPHERE Simple experiments have confirmed the following hypothesis that I had previously formulated: living beings moving in the atmosphere, notably insects and birds, are capable of taking electrical charges, often at a very high potential. In imitating the flight of a bird in order to study the effects produced by the friction of its wings against the air, as, for example, by shaking a duck’s wing before a radium electrometer after having taken care to insulate myself from the earth by means of two ebonite discs of 2 cm. thickness, I have been able to measure a charge of static electricity of an approximate tension of 600 volts. This tension increases as the earth level becomes further distant from the experimenter. These experiments put an end to all the controversies that have raged for the past fifty years among investigators (naturalists, entomologists, ornithologists, hunters, etc.) on the subject of the migration of birds in general, and of their direction in relation to that of the wind in particular. It is only fair to state that the majority of observers have admitted that their conclusions were, after all, but approximations, the solution of the problem thus remaining to be found. As I have already stated, all living beings emit radiations. But, as far as the reception of these waves is concerned, birds which feed while flying have a far greater capacity and sensibility than animals that are restricted to moving on the earth’s surface. We know that the electric potential of the terrestrial atmosphere increases with height at the rate of 1 volt per cm. Thus at a height of 1,000 meters there is a potential difference of 100,000 volts in relation to the earth’s surface. This increase of potential with height accounts for the formidable charges observed in 10
certain aerial metallic tracks situated in mountainous regions. It also accounts for those luminous brushlights which, in the calmest atmosphere, alpinists have observed being shot off their ice-axes at high altitude such as the summit of the Wetterhorn in the Bernese Oberland (3,703 meters). Moreover, it has been observed that all birds about to undertake a long migration voyage (wild ducks, pigeons, swallows, etc.) start by rising in the air, then describe a series of numerous orbits before taking their final departure. Why do they fly in this manner? Judging by what we have just learned about the instinct of orientation, we may assume that in describing such orbits the birds avail themselves of a useful process to ascertain the various directions of atmospheric waves by means of their natural radiogoniometer (radio-direction finder), consisting of the semicircular canals. It is highly probable that the purpose of these preliminary manoeuvres lies essentially in the necessity, imposed on the birds, to obtain the indispensable electric tension in order to detect insects or other prey they are searching for, which are actually thousands of miles away. As a case in point let us suppose that if, to the atmospheric potential generated by altitude, say 50,000 volts for an ordinary flight at a height of 500 meters, we add the potential developed by friction of the bird’s wings against the wind, say 25,000 volts, we arrive at a total of 75,000 volts. INFLUENCE OF ELECTRICAL CAPACITY IN BIRDS It is worthy of note that electric tension during a bird’s flight varies in direct ratio to the resistance of the wind. The stronger the wind, the greater the electric tension acquired by the bird. The weaker the wind, the more this tension diminishes. Again, when the bird flies in a straight line, it encounters on its path winds of variable intensity coming from all directions. This electric tension may thus be regulated by the bird which simply flies high or low according to the strength and direction of the wind. If, in the course of a flight against the wind, the electric tension which, added to that generated by the friction of its wings against the wind, will give it the tension of 75,000 volts to 100,000 volts, the bird must come down a distance of 250 meters in order to bring the tension back to the former figure. At this new altitude the bird will find in the atmosphere an electric tension which, added to that generated by the friction of its wings against the wind, will give the tension of 75,000 volts which is both sufficient and necessary for continuing its flight. On the other hand, a higher tension would prove detrimental. It is known that the electric tension of the atmosphere is proportional to the altitude; on the other hand, the electrical capacity of the bird in relation to the soil is, in the first approximation, inversely proportional to the altitude. The result is that the product of these two quantities, which is the electric charge of the bird (Q=CV) is constant. This electric charge appears to be a constant for any given bird. [H: Please be very attentive to these things, Ed and Bob, for these are the principles upon which intergalactic flight becomes based. You are not dealing with ONLY electromagnetic energy but actual static electrical waves which bear motion as in “currents”. This is easily accomplished without air movement or grounded grid lines.] Thanks to this means of regulating its electric tension by varying the flying level from the earth’s surface, the bird, together with the underlying soil, constitute an actual air condenser. The bird thus possesses a kind of complete wireless apparatus since the semi-circular canals, in communication with his brain, and under the influence of electricity, play the part of receiver. Just as for picking up wireless waves emitted in America the operator regulates the mechanism of his receiving apparatus by modifying with a variable condenser the capacity of his aerial in relation to the earth, so the migrating bird regulates his own electrical capacity by flying either high or low. 11
THE ROLE OF ORIENTATION IN THE FLIGHT OF BIRDS A Belgian entomologist, Dr. Quinet, after having made observations for thirty years, states that he has invariably “seen” birds flying against the wind. The theory that has been put forward in this work provides a simple explanation of this phenomenon. When they fly against the wind, birds are compelled, in order to lower their electric tension, to come down to low altitudes which enables the observer to see them clearly. But when birds fly with the wind they rise to a considerable altitude so as to obtain the charge of atmospheric electricity which is indispensable to them. In this case the birds remain invisible to the naked eye. [H: Important notation.] This theory also furnishes an explanation of the observations, made by Ternier and Masse, Cathelin and Aubert, when they stated having “heard” and “seen” migratory birds flying at great heights with the wind or against a light breeze. All these different observations, far from excluding one another, combine to confirm my theory. EXPLANATION OF MIGRATION On the subject of migration of birds and the means employed by them to that end, naturalists have advanced a great variety of hypotheses. Some have attributed the migratory instinct to an exceptionally acute sense of sight, while others have imagined the existence of an extremely sensitive hearing thanks to a kind of microphonic apparatus. There are yet others who have supposed that the birds were endowed with a highly developed olfactory sense enabling them to detect effluvia which escape us. There are also those who have invoked an electromagnetic action, localized in the atmosphere; and lastly there is the hypothesis of place-memory. The majority of observers appear to have preferred the instinct or special sense hypothesis. All these theories do not explain why, for example, the falcon rises facing the wind before pouncing on its prey, which it does not seem to perceive standing close by; nor why sterns and seagulls perform a series of circular manoeuvres in the air, while facing the wind, before alighting to fish in the waves. Nor yet do those theories explain a host of analogous facts. [H: Oh yes THEY DO, if you allow your mind to follow the information you already have on aerodynamics and thermal waves. In addition you are now moving into ability to see HOW a bird can seemingly travel endlessly while flapping its wings for great distances. The facts are that after a certain pattern is set and in place the bird (wings) become a type of perpetual-motion machine which are operated on the currents of electricity and not from the musculature of the bird itself. This is pretty crude in explanation but you of proper reception will understand exactly what I just said.] The theory of auto-electrification alone, stating that the bird is able to detect radiations emitted by the living things upon which it feeds, may be said to explain these phenomena that have hitherto remained so mysterious. EXTENSION OF THE PRINCIPLE TO WINGLESS ANIMALS Although animals that live in close contact with the earth’s surface electrify themselves less easily than birds and insects, it is nevertheless a fact that they are endowed with a certain degree of receptivity which enables them to detect radiations, but only within a very restricted radius. Thus the horse is capable of finding his way to the stable within a radius of 10 kilometers. The dog “detects” his master within reasonable distance. Lemmings travel towards the sea from the far distant mountains of Norway. And the same principle applies to all animals possessing a tail, for they all electrify themselves by waving their tail in the air. It should also be noted that the tail of animals producing auto-electrification serves both as an antenna and an aerial. Moreover, the tail is in direct connection with the most important nervous centers. [H: Man has been given a BRAIN through which to Reason and Choose, Think and Create. He doesn’t need a tail or feathered wings—he needs hands and ability to stand upright without having to sit on a tail. Ponder it. GOD GAVE YOU THE ABILITY TO TAKE ALL THE WONDROUS GIFTS of Creation and put them into use to be able to construct what you need for your use. You have just forgotten, nothing more, as to how to use these wonderful things of Universal tools. How sad that the masses of your world population will never comprehend this wonderful TRUTH of BEING.] 12
CHAPTER III UNIVERSAL NATURE OF RADIATION IN LIVING BEINGS [Fundamental Principles; Nature of Radiation in Living Beings; the Glow-worm.] FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES As a result of numerous observations and experiments I have formulated the following four principles: 1. Every living being emits radiations. This first principle is the keystone of the theory. Evidence of its validity is given in the following chapters. 2. The great majority of living beings—with very few exceptions—are capable of receiving and of detecting waves. The second proposition is a natural corollary of the first. The work of physicists on wave propagation has shown that any transmitting system is susceptible of receiving waves and of transmitting them. Indeed, every radiating system can both emit and transmit. 3. Any flying creature, that is to say, capable of leaving the earth’s surface (bird, winged insect) possesses a high capacity of wave-emission and reception, while animals that are unable to fly have a far lesser capacity in the same direction. The third proposition is of a somewhat intuitive order and is based upon what everyone knows on the propagation of radiations. High aerials are better than low ones for emitting and picking up waves. It follows, therefore, that flying creatures are better equipped than nonflying ones for emitting and receiving radiations. 4. The influence of sunlight on the propagation of waves is the determining factor in causing certain birds and insects, whose receptivity is specific, to fly and to feed at night, whereas others whose receptivity is normal, function, so to speak, in the daytime. The fourth proposition accounts for the differences observed as much in the organs as in the habits of diurnal and nocturnal animals respectively. All observations on Hertzian waves show the waves. But we are not yet in a position to know definitely to what extent and in what way this influence is exerted on ultrashort waves. As far as waves of several hundred meters are concerned, and also longer waves, sunlight has a very marked weakening effect. As for waves under 100 meters, the reverse effect occurs, complicated by the phenomenon of scintillation. We may now adapt these conclusions to living beings whose radiations are equally influenced by sunlight. As the modern tendency is to reduce all physical phenomena to unity by bringing into play the full range of waves, it is perfectly logical to assume that certain animals act as transmitters and receptors of radiations. It seems almost certain that the majority of insects and birds give off radiations, and are also sensitive to the influence of waves, and this orientation is automatic. When, in 1923, I conceived my theory, these principles could only be considered as a possible hypothesis. But as a result of all the observations and experiments I have made since then this hypothesis seems to me to have gained a greater measure of clearness and validity. NATURE OF RADIATION IN LIVING BEINGS In order to understand fully the role and nature of radiations emitted by living beings, it may be instructive to look back and recall the history of the discovery of electromagnetic waves. The existence of these waves was not generally known until an apparatus had been devised to render them perceptible to our senses. The greatest claim to fame on the part of Hertz, Branly, Marconi, and many other technicians and amateurs, lies essentially in having invented an apparatus which, independently of all theories on the nature of radiation, makes these waves easily perceptible, even across great distances. The recent discoveries of certain kinds of radiations—wireless waves, X-rays, radio-activity, cosmic rays—have but slightly lifted the veil of mystery concealing from our senses whole gamuts of waves which elude direct perception. 13
Is it not possible that we are surrounded by other radiations, imperceptible to us, because we do not possess the necessary apparatus capable of revealing them to our senses? If we admit that birds emit and detect radiations imperceptible to us, the terms instinct and special sense employed to explain certain characteristics become clear immediately, and assume a precise significance. The sense of orientation in birds, and in animals generally, explains itself at once. Just as a ship lost in a fog tries to ascertain by means of a radiogoniometric apparatus the direction of the Hertzian beacon sending off electromagnetic waves, so, too, the animals and insects in question try to pick up radiations emitted by living beings and plants which have a definite interest for them. Their orientation is subsequently determined by the bearings obtained. But it may be objected that space would then be riddled with innumerable radiations. How would it be possible for these creatures to detect them? The answer is simple. Discrimination is easily effected thanks to the diversity of frequencies which characterizes these radiations. We shall see how this is accomplished presently. What is the organ which enables an animal to pick up these waves and to detect them while also rendering them perceptible to their senses? My firm conviction is that this organ is the semi-circular canals of the ear whose fluid is sensitive to electromagnetic fields, thus enabling animals to be aware of the vibrations they are searching for. We may now examine more closely the functions of the semi-circular canals by studying the modalities of their configuration in different living species. The invertebrates do not possess any semi-circular canals, but only membranous vesicles which take their place and have similar functions. Yves Delage mentions the case of the octopus which is still able to swim after being blinded, but turns round its longitudinal axis or plane of symmetry when the vesicles which control its faculty of orientation have been destroyed. After the destruction of both labyrinths, aquatic animals and notably frogs, can no longer swim nor jump in a straight line. It should also be noted that lampreys, which have only two pairs of canals, can only move in space in two directions; that Japanese mice (dancing mice) which only possess the superior vertical canals, can move only in one direction, right or left, and are moreover incapable of moving straight ahead or in a vertical direction. These rodents, E. de Cyon has shown, know only one space and one dimension. The majority of the vertebrates possess semi-circular canals arranged in three planes in space. This assemblage of three canals, each of which is at right angles to the other two, constitutes the labyrinth which is completed by more or less developed organs: the vestibule and the cochlea. In physiology the labyrinth is a name given to the series of cavities of the internal ear. It comprises the vestibule, cochlea and semi-circular canals. The vestibule is an oval cavity of the internal ear which forms the entrance of the cochlea. The cochlea is a cavity of the internal ear resembling a snail-shell. Helmoltz was of the opinion that it served the purpose of analyzing sound waves. Now, whereas the cochlea is highly developed in mammals it is practically absent in fishes, reptiles and birds. (Fig. 3, see next page) How may we account for this difference? Is the presence of the cochlea in mammals related to a special sense which is absent in birds and fishes? I believe that, from the point of view of my theory, the question is susceptible of a very simple and general explanation. We have already seen that the semicircular canals function as a radiogoniometric system whose orientation depends on the direction of the particular waves picked up. As far as fishes and birds which move in three-dimensional space are concerned, this picking up process is facilitated, as we have pointed out before, by auto-electrification effected either by means of friction of living bodies resulting from contact with air or water. Fig 3 14
Mammals, not endowed with such powers, and confined to moving in a two-dimensional space represented by the earth’s surface, need an auxiliary organ to pick up the particular waves that sensitize their radiogoniometric canals. This is where the cochlea plays an important part, as a kind of aerial, left open and wound up in the form of a more or less flattened tube filled with a conducting fluid. The question now arises “What about the reptiles?” In spite of their incapacity to scale heights or fathom depths, why are they not brought in the same category as mammals and why are they devoid of a cochlea? The answer will be apparent to anyone who has observed the movements of reptiles. If, by chance, on a warm summer’s day, you have the opportunity of seeing an adder, for example, you may observe that while resting, its long articulated body is arranged somewhat in the form of a flattened coil. This state of apparent repose or sleep which the snake seems to have assumed, is in reality a state of subconscious watching. The adder watches; the harmonious winding of its body in a small receiving apparatus which to a great extent makes up for the absence of a diminutive cochlea in the labyrinth containing the semi-circular canals. If an owl, or any other diurnal bird of prey should venture to approach the snake or if a harmless green frog, an easy prey, should go near it, this impoverished receiving apparatus, formed by the adder’s body, will immediately warn the snake, which will be prepared either for attack or for escape. This would seem to prove the needlessness of a specific spiral apparatus for picking up waves. Thus, once again, we have a confirmation of the ancient dictum: “Nature does nothing in vain,” and there is no reason why a useless organ should be preserved when Nature finds a better substitute for it. What then are these radiations emitted by living beings? Like all other known radiations, they are characterized by their wavelength. Our present task is to consider the range of wavelengths that comprises these radiations. THE GLOW-WORM At the outset, let us show by a concrete example that it would be absurd to deny the principle that living beings emit radiations. This negation is obviously futile, as all available data formally contradict it. No great mental effort is required to think of an insect which emits luminous radiations, I mean the glow-worm. What is the glow-worm? An insect that remains more or less constantly in a luminous state. Experiments have shown, by direct observation, that the eggs of the glow-worm are spontaneously luminous and that this characteristic light is transmitted without a break from generation to generation. What then is this radiation of the glow-worm? Nothing but radiations of ordinary light, but filtered and giving a special luminous spectrum that may be observed with the spectroscope. Hence if we perceive the luminescence of the glow-worm, it is primarily because it is due to a luminous radiation, emanating from cells, certain molecules of which vibrate with the same frequency as light which we can perceive immediately because it affects our visual sense. Why then should we admit the possibility of the glow-worm emitting luminous radiations while refusing to admit the possibility of other insects emitting different types of radiations beyond the range of luminous ones, and consequently imperceptible to our senses? Such an attitude is reminiscent of the skeptical Thomas, for we insist on seeing the radiations before believing in their existence. But we know that in the incommensurable range of vibrations, only the luminous octave is visible to us. There is no gain saying this, and the mystery of the cases under consideration vanishes if we admit that the fact of emitting radiations is a universal property of living matter, just as it is becoming more and more evident that radio-activity is a universal property of inanimate matter. We may ask ourselves whence comes the energy necessary for radiation. We shall see later how this question may be answered in its generalized form and also in regard to all living beings. In any case, it seems inconsistent not to concede to other living beings what is conceded in the particular case of the glow-worm. The full range of radiating properties of living beings does not manifest itself to our senses any more than the complete gamut of electromagnetic waves. Let us humbly remind ourselves that the human body has but very small windows looking out upon the incommensurable range of an ocean of radiations. Our senses can reveal to us but a few octaves. The scanty knowledge we have concerning radiations of living beings must suffice to guide us in the study of the whole range. 15
We have drawn attention to the luminescence of the glow-worm which emits a cold light, or nearly so. It is hardly necessary to add that all animals with a constant normal temperature or a temperature higher than that of the ambient atmosphere, emit calorific radiations, i.e., warm radiations. Before formulating a general theory and dealing with the problem of energy, let us say a few words on radiations in general, and especially on electromagnetic radiations with which modern science has made us familiar. These radiations constitute the basis of the most important phenomena in physics. The propagation of sound waves through matter is effected against a certain amount of resistance while electromagnetic waves traverse the most tenuous space filled only by the all-pervading ether. Among such waves we find wireless waves, calorific waves, luminous waves, actinic waves, X-rays and penetrating waves (cosmic rays). Hatonn: This is sufficient for this writing. I want you to go slowly enough to UNDERSTAND what is being very simplistically outlaid for your beginning understanding of LIGHT and ELECTRICITY. Don’t turn it into some gigantic mountain to be traversed—it is the very BASIS OF LIFE. From these very basic facts can be gleaned all the information necessary to harness the very atmosphere and create that which you need to move about the entire universe for it is all electricity and perception. You can only do and be what you individually PERCEIVE. May you come to see your very connections and integration with GOD! Through truth and knowledge of what IS shall you rise to that to which MAN aspires and KNOWS but has FORGOTTEN. Salu
CHAPTER IV ON RADIATIONS IN GENERAL AND ON ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES IN PARTICULAR [Nature and Characteristics of known Radiations; Table of Radiations; Electromagnetic Waves; Role of Self-induction and Capacity; The Oscillating Circuit; Natural Period and Resonance; Explanatory Analogies concerning Electrical Oscillations; Ultra-short Waves.] NATURE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF KNOWN RADIATIONS It is generally known that a radiation is a disturbance of the ether travelling at the velocity of light, that is to say 186,326 miles per second. [E.Y. Editor’s note: You more technical readers have to remember that this velocity of light actually varies depending on the medium in which the light of other electromagnetic radiation is traveling, having a somewhat higher velocity in the “free space” of a vacuum than in, say, high-lead crystal glass. The property of transparent materials which takes this velocity into account is called the Index of Refraction. Those of you readers so interested can look up this topic in any good general physics textbook.] The range of known radiations comprises wireless waves, calorific, luminous, chemical radiations, X-rays, gamma-rays of radium and cosmic rays. These various radiations differ from one another only by their frequency, that is to say by the number of oscillations per second which characterizes them. The wavelength is the distance covered by the wave per cycle in the course of its propagation. The higher the frequency of radiation the shorter is its wavelength. The process of radiation does not involve transport of matter or emission of particles; it is essentially the propagation of a disturbance occurring in the ether. [E.Y. Editor’s note: This discussion ignores the “duality” argument for some of the properties of light interaction with matter wherein the explanation of the phenomena is better suited to regarding the light of other electromagnetic radiation as little particles. This is referred to in general physics texts as the “wave-particle duality” of light and is worth looking into in greater detail, if only to appreciate how inadequate are the concepts of so-called “modern” science!] Such are the main principles of the theory of radiations governing modern physics. The table on following represents the complete scale of electromagnetic waves with their respective wavelength and frequency.
According to Clerk Maxwell who conceived a famous theory of light, luminous radiation is of a purely electromagnetic nature. As electromagnetic waves are now familiar to all, we propose considering them at some length. This apparent digression is necessary in order to get a clear grasp of the technical details that will be given later in connection with my theory of radiation of cells and living beings. Moreover, anyone should be able to follow easily the explanations and analogies given in this chapter concerning oscillating circuits and high-frequency currents. Readers capable of understanding technical accounts of electromagnetic waves may find useful information in the footnotes on self-induction and capacity in the oscillating circuit. Table of Electromag Waves [Footnotes:] Electromagnetic Waves. The phenomena associated with electrical oscillations cannot be fully understood until a certain number of preliminary facts have been grasped of which only a brief summary can be given here. For further information the reader is referred to the various text-books on wireless. At the outset let us bear in mind that the basis of all these phenomena is induction, discovered by Faraday and universally applied in electricity at the present time. The following is a brief summary of the main features of this phenomenon: An instantaneous electric current is generated in a conducting circuit whenever the magnetic flux which flows through it varies. The electromotive force of this induced current is all the greater, other things being equal, as the variation of the flux is more rapid. The phenomenon of induction has given rise to the theory of alternating current and to all the applications derived from it, notably to the use of self-inductance coils, capacity, circuits of harmonic resonance, etc. We know that the phenomenon of resonance forms the basis of all electrical oscillations. A second point deserves attention: electrical oscillations are propagated through insulators better than through conductors because the former do not absorb them. An interrupted circuit, that is to say “open” from an electrical point of view, may thus be the center of radio-electrical oscillations which are radiated through space in the form of electromagnetic waves. A radio-electrical wave propagating itself consists essentially of an electric field and a magnetic field which follow the variations of the particular wave both in time and space. The circulation of high-frequency oscillatory currents originates from insulating materials mainly by virtue of the extremely rapid vibration of these electrical movements and also owing to the phenomena of self-induction and capacity. [H: These are very important points to you who are working on circuits and trying to figure out HOW a thing is supposed to work. These writings are included for you hands-on-tinkerers for most readers only need the “concept” of this topic under discussion. You will find, researchers, your answers lie quite obviously hidden right in front of you. I may or may not make notations at each point of hang-up but I suggest you study these points quite carefully if you are building accumulators, frequency devices or even if you just want to UNDERSTAND the subject.] Role of Self Induction and Capacity. The phenomenon of self-induction is, as its name indicates, only a particular case of induction which manifests itself in the circuit that gives rise to it, creating a kind of auto-reaction. Self-induction or, more simply, inductance, is the part of an electric circuit in which the phenomenon of self-induction manifests itself. This latter is produced by a variable magnetic field. Self-induction comes into consideration when this circuit is traversed by a variable electric current or by an equally variable magnetic flux. Self-inductance or, more simply, inductance consists practically of one or several conducting spirals generally arranged in the form of coils. The induction flux formed by the spirals is axial. A retilinear conducting wire possesses self-inductance, due to a magnetic field created in its vicinity by any current flowing through it. The wire may be considered as a spiral of infinite diameter. Capacity. When two conductors close to each other and separated by an insulator are raised to a certain potential difference, continuous or alternating, an accumulation of local electricity results on these two metallic armatures, due to the electric capacity of this system. Owing to the accumulation of electricity resulting under these conditions, the name of condenser has been given to the apparatus capable of producing this phenomenon. 17
We also know that an insulator, placed between two armatures, which cannot be the center of any conduction current similar to those flowing through the two conductors is, nevertheless, traversed by electric currents called convection currents. The laws of electricity state that the current flowing through a condenser varies in intensity as the capacity of the condenser becomes greater, as the electric tension is raised, and as the frequency of this tension itself becomes more marked. But it is important to observe that even if the tension and the capacity are very low, it is nevertheless possible to obtain a current of great intensity provided the frequency be very great. For greater frequencies than a milliard, for example, the capacities brought into play are sometimes so weak that they may appear non-existent or negligible. They are capable, however, of letting high-frequency oscillations pass through the air between two armatures separated by several inches and forming a condenser. For still higher frequencies a distance of several meters between the two conductors, always constitutes an appreciable capacity, and it is thus possible, thanks to high-frequency phenomena, to make a current flow through an “open” circuit. This is rendered possible because conduction currents, passing through electric conductors, close up again owing to aerial capacity in the form of convection currents. Generally speaking, two single wires, placed close together, form capacity as they may be raised to different potentials. For the same reason the two ends of a single wire have capacity in relation to their extremities and the external medium. [End Footnotes] [H: Dharma is feeling surges of anger at me for allowing this to come forth in this manner. She recognizes that this [Lakhovsky’s work], coupled with the work of Ruhmkorff, Tesla and Faraday, IS THE WORK PRESENTED BY WALTER RUSSELL, NO MORE AND NO LESS. This is also WHY such electrical scientists have to DISCOUNT the scientific presentations of Russell as being inadequate to mechanical truth or “whole cloth”. Russell could present the concept of all being light but he was off on a lot of simple electrical knowledge and input and, in the efforting to design formulae and diagrams, made some grievous errors in his hypotheses. Why would this happen? Because no matter how brilliant a man, God does not identify in revelation that which is already KNOWN in a mechanical physical world. Ideas strike and flow and that is from a Spiritual aspect. When one claims to INTEGRATE TOTALLY the two (physical and Spiritual) you will come up with incorrect assumptions—no matter how much “revelation” is involved. If Russell’s work had been left for what it actually represented, it would be fine, but tampering with it caused it to lack clarity and exactness and, in science, errors in apparatus can KILL, not manifest, life. The concept of God being Light and therefore ALL is LIGHT is absolute and correct, much of the string of the circuitous routing of his “perceptions” were based on “wishes”, not “fact”. Does this lessen such as “Russell”? No, it simply points out the inability of man physical to fill the role of revelator of both physical and Spiritual. The concepts need integration but when the incorrect conclusions are drawn, the presentation is unworthy. So how did we allow all the court sessions when the original was the LIE, not our own presentation for which we claimed no hold or property? It matters not, chela, for it is information freely given as TRUTH and WHAT IS and you needed the experience. Russell did take it a step further and related this to SOUL and projection of God Thought expressed only somewhat differently as he perceived it, then changed it when he joined with his latter wife wherein his work became totally refocused on human aspect and New Age manipulations. His work became locked into humanistic acceptance and human limitations and therein lay the total exception to acceptance as a valid “way to go”. The distraction was to pull attention away from what was being experimented and researched and BUILT while no one thought to look beyond the veil at the science involved. Religion is always that which pulls focus onto the mystical while reality is being utilized by the would-be kings. It WILL become apparent WHY that former information needed expression in the way it was offered, not for its valid realistic evidence—but its example of tampering and directed encapsulation so that “modern” man would be distracted. Are we not “big enough” in TRUTH to allow the walls to fall of their own volition than to push and shove against the ungiving intrigue of mankind and selected MEN or WOMEN? Information, with WRONG CONCLUSIONS, is more deadly than no information at all. 18
We needed to point up the absurdity of the judicial system and legal haggling over something which NO-ONE understood nor argued over in truth—but only in GREED. Had any lawyer on the side of goodness worked at locating these volumes and presentations of such as Lakhovsky there would have been no case—for any plagiarism came not from US—but from the Russell material. This is why Russell had no objection and offered, indeed, his own updates and information— only to be lost to the struggle of ownership of that which cannot be OWNED. Nor did, in fact, Russell claim that ownership. Ponder it.] THE OSCILLATING CIRCUIT What is an oscillating circuit? We know that before a circuit can be the center of electrical oscillations it is essential it should possess self-inductance (spiral or coil) and capacity (condenser). When these conditions are fulfilled an electric or magnetic shock acting on the circuit so constituted gives rise to a series of oscillations. According to the circumstances in which this phenomenon occurs, and to the way in which the source of energy manifests itself, for there necessarily must be in the circuit or in its vicinity some source of energy, the resulting succession of oscillations thus generated may be repeated and maintained. EXPLANATORY ANALOGIES CONCERNING ELECTRICAL OSCILLATIONS For readers who are not familiar with the phenomena involved in the production of oscillations in an electric circuit, we propose explaining, in a very elementary manner, how this occurs. For the sake of the uninitiated let us first take two comparisons. Let us imagine the pendulum of a clock. This is a system which may be started in two different ways according as the conditions are those associated with either one or the other of the following two cases. 1. Suppose that the mass of the pendulum, immersed in water, possesses a paddle to slow down its motion. If the pendulum is deviated from the vertical position and then released, it will slowly return, owing to the resistance of the water against the paddle, to the vertical position (see Figure 4). Figure 4) 2. Suppose now that the pendulum is suspended in the air and deprived of the paddle. It is expected that under the influence of an impulsion the pendulum will oscillate to and from the vertical position. Its motion thus becomes oscillatory and the frequency of oscillations is equal to the number of times that the pendulum passes through the vertical line in one second (see Figure 5). Fig. 5 If an external cause acts upon the pendulum with the same rhythm and in the same direction, its oscillations will continue without a stop. Thus we see that when there is no resistance to displacement such a system produces mechanical oscillations. Let us now consider two water vessels joined at their base by a long tube of small diameter, and let us raise one of the vessels. The level of the water in the first will fall while in the other vessel it will gradually rise until the same level is reached in both vessels (see Figure 6 next page). In this case, owing to the resistance of the tube due to its small diameter and great length, the final level is reached only by degrees in consequence of continuous displacement of water in the tube flowing in only one direction. Let us now take a tube of short length and large diameter with a stopcock in the middle (see Figure 7 next 2 pages). The stopcock being closed, let us raise one of the vessels to a certain height and then open the stopcock suddenly. We know that the final common level in the two vessels will be reached only after a few seconds, following a series of oscillations of the liquid contained in the respective vessels. This phenomenon of oscillations is due to the inertia of water as the result of the velocity acquired by the liquid and the sudden motion it is subjected to in order to regain its position of equilibrium. This state of equilibrium is reached only after a series of oscillations have taken place whose amplitude diminishes by degrees.
The occurrence of the phenomenon may be brought about simply by an initial difference of level. And if it is desired that the oscillations should last indefinitely, it is merely necessary to raise or lower alternately one of the two vessels while following accurately, with the same speed, the rhythm caused by the motion of the water. Thus we shall have produced, under the influence of an external cause, a permanent oscillatory motion of the water. Fig. 6 fig 7 This simple and suggestive experiment is so familiar that we need not insist any further. Let us note, however, three important points. The motion of the water is all the more rapid as: 1. The quantity of water is smaller. 2. The initial difference of level in the two vessels is greater. 3. The tube is less resistant, that is to say, bigger and shorter. And now the same applies to electrical oscillations in an oscillating circuit formed, as we know, by selfinductance and capacity. The induction coil plays the role of the water vessel (see Figure 8). Fig. 8 The capacity of an electrical apparatus lies in its property of storing a quantity of electricity. The greater the capacity the greater its power of accumulating electricity. It is only required that the two metallic armatures of the capacity, separated by an insulator, should be raised to different electric tensions so that a charge may result. This capacity thus corresponds in every respect to the water vessel. But, instead of water charging the vessel, it is electricity that charges the capacity (condenser). Self-inductance corresponds to the volume of water contained in the tube joining the two vessels. The greater its action, the more it impedes the rapid oscillatory motion of electricity. An insignificant inductance, a circuit consisting of a single spiral, for example, would correspond to the thick and short tube mentioned before, and could only offer a weak resistance to the passage of current. On the other hand, a coil, consisting of several [or many] windings, would correspond to a tube of great length offering strong resistance to the passage of water. Again, we know that an electric current flowing through a coil system creates a magnetic field whose intensity and direction correspond exactly to the intensity and direction of the current. We also know that a variation of intensity in the magnetic field of a circuit creates in this circuit of the coil itself, or of the spiral generating the field, self-induction. The induction current thus produced lasts as long as the variations of the field which created it. To summarize: a current creates a magnetic field and the variation in a magnetic field gives rise to a variable electric current. Let us further consider an oscillating circuit consisting of a spiral and a capacity formed by two metallic armatures separated by an insulator. Let us suppose that the circuit is open and the capacity charged. If the interrupter is closed, the capacity is discharged immediately into the spiral, giving rise to a current, even, as we observed before, in opening the stopcock, the water rushed into the tube. At the beginning the spiral is not affected by any current. Suddenly a current flows, rising from zero to a certain value. This is thus variation of current and creation of a variable magnetic field in the spiral, representing a certain variation of energy brought into play. But the current does not flow indefinitely and tends to fade out. The field created by the current will disappear and thus variation in the field will give rise, by induction in the coil system and the spiral, to an instantaneous electric current (see direction No. 3, Fig. 8). Now, it is found, and it is a remarkable fact, that the direction of this induced current is the same as the direction of the first current of discharge, and that it tends to prolong its action. It is the laws of induction which determine the direction of this current, and we shall not insist any further. But a new fact becomes already apparent. This current, supplementary to the primary current, charges in its turn the capacity which has just been discharged, only with an inverse polarity. All the energy 20
of the discharge, which was transformed into electromagnetic energy, that is to say energy of motion, has been transformed again into electro-static energy, that is to say potential energy, in order to charge the capacity in the inverse direction. But owing to various losses, notably through friction, which appears in the form of heat, this charge is smaller than the primary charge. We now have a set of conditions similar to those at the beginning of the experiment: the condenser will be discharged afresh into the spiral, then recharged a third time with the identical polarity as the primary polarity. The phenomenon will proceed on these lines until the complete exhaustion of the electric energy brought into play. It will thus be seen that there will be a series of very rapid charges and discharges, that is what is termed an oscillatory discharge. This phenomenon comes to an end when all the energy is dissipated in the form of heat and radiation. The rapidity of the succession of oscillations, that is to say their number per second, is known as the frequency. It is greater as the capacity takes less time to charge itself, that is to say as this capacity is weaker and also as the spiral is smaller. It is easy to understand, therefore, the necessity of reducing as much as possible the spiral and the capacity in order to obtain very high frequencies. It is precisely what takes place within the living cells, as we shall see later. Moreover, we know that if the capacity and the spiral of an oscillating circuit diminish more and more, the wavelength may become as short as desired, but there is another thing which is reduced at the same time and very rapidly too, that is the energy brought into play. If the wavelength becomes extremely short the capacity will necessarily be very small and the energy almost negligible unless the electric tensions employed are themselves considerable. But one is soon limited in this direction by the dielectric resistance of insulators and even by the air itself. Let us recall to mind the experiments carried out by Hertz with two metallic plates separated by a distance of 1 to 2 meters and raised to an alternative potential difference by means of a Ruhmkorff coil; the self-inductance was constituted simply by connecting wires and the condenser, by the capacity formed by the two plates suspended in the insulating air (see Figures 9 & 10 next page). This apparatus gives off wireless waves of short length. When the length of the connecting wires is diminished, as well as the diameter of the plates, the self-inductance and the capacity are equally diminished, but persist none the less. The apparatus may become microscopic, yet the oscillating circuit will always have a typical wavelength, but this wavelength will be correspondingly smaller and this also applies to the energy brought into play. Let us consider the particular case of a long rectilinear conducting wire whose two extremities are raised to any given potential difference. In relations to the material medium surrounding it, this wire is endowed with but a small degree of capacity, magnetic waves having the same frequency as its own and self-inductance. It can, therefore, be a source of electromagnetic oscillations of short wavelength, that is to say of high frequency. The following three cases may be met with: fig 9, 10 1. The circuit is subjected to any kind of electric or magnetic shock: it is then said that it vibrates according to its natural period. 2. The circuit is placed in a variable electromagnetic field or else it is subjected to the influence of electro-frequency. It then vibrates, so to speak, in sympathy, or to put it more accurately, in resonance. 3. Under the influence of an external cause, the circuit may also be the center of forced oscillations of a different kind of frequency. It is then said that it vibrates aperiodically. 21
A glance at the scale of electromagnetic waves will show that, generally speaking, the oscillations of which we know least are those which have the shortest wave-length. Oscillations of low frequency from alternating currents and the long wireless waves belong to the domain of industry, as well as the luminous radiations and X-rays. But there still exist in the infra-red and ultra-violet regions, and in the region of penetrating radiations, whole gamuts of frequencies having but a theoretical interest, the study of which has not progressed very far. [H: IT HAS NOW!!] In the present state of our knowledge we may say that there is no definite break between the so-called electromagnetic waves, the calorific waves or infra-red waves, the luminous waves and the cosmic waves. Hatonn: It is true that there is no “definite break between” the waves referred to in the ending paragraph above but the use (and NOW, the knowledge of and use of these waves) as focused WEAPONS against the living beings (including plants and minerals) of your globe is tremendous in both impact and importance. These invisible rays in both the extra-low frequencies and the invisible higher-frequency light waves are killing you—and the murder is deliberate. It is time to wake up, World. Salu.
CHAPTER V OSCILLATION AND RADIATION OF CELLS [Comparison of Cell to Oscillating Circuit; Constitution of Cellular Oscillating Circuit; Characteristics and Wavelengths of Cellular Radiation; Nature of Cellular Radiation.] COMPARISON OF LIVING CELL TO AN OSCILLATING CIRCUIT In the light of experimental facts, both physical and biological, which have been discussed in the preceding chapters, we are now in a position to consider the basis of my theory concerning the radiation of living cells. In the third chapter this first principle was enunciated: Every living being emits radiations. From what we have just learned in connection with our physical studies of electromagnetic waves, it follows that emission of radiations necessarily implies an oscillatory phenomenon. Furthermore, the most rudimentary living organism being constructed by a single cell, it seems evident that the simplest biological oscillation must be that which manifests itself within the cell. We can thus enunciate this second principle, being more definite and proceeding naturally from the first: Every living cell is essentially dependent on its nucleus which is the center of oscillations and gives off radiations. What are these radiations and whence comes the energy involved? Here are two questions I propose answering in the following pages. Let us suppose that the geometrical dimensions of an oscillating circuit diminish gradually until they become invisible and microscopic. The spiral and the capacity of the circuit, which will also become microscopic, will still exist nonetheless. Thanks to these two indispensable factors, the circuit will continue to oscillate under the influence of causes which we shall examine later, and with a wavelength more and more reduced. This is precisely what takes place within the cells. Microscopic analysis reveals the presence of nuclei as shown in Figs. 10 and 11. These nuclei are, as we shall demonstrate presently, actual circuits endowed with self-inductance and capacity and consequently capable of oscillating. These circuits oscillate according to a range of wavelengths whose magnitude depends essentially on the values of spirals and capacities. The waves given off are thus of electromagnetic origin, by virtue of the nature of the circuits, and are also of very high frequency owing to the minute dimensions of the organisms in question. (see Figure 11). fig 11 22
CONSTITUTION OF CELLULAR OSCILLATING CIRCUIT Let us first call to mind what morphology teaches us on the subject of the constitution of cells. The details of cellular structure are made clear in Fig. 12. Fig. 12 A cell consists essentially of a nucleus or central system, immersed in protoplasm which is itself surrounded by a semi-permeable membrane. Examination of the nucleus reveals the existence of small twisted filaments constituting actual electric circuits. Fig. 12 shows a fragment of one of these filaments. They are composed of organic materials of mineral conductors, covered by a tubular membrane of insulating material consisting of cholesterol, plastin and other dielectric substances. Thus these organic structures, assuming the form of conducting filaments, constitute an electric circuit endowed by construction with selfinductance and capacity, which may well be compared to an oscillating circuit. These circuits, characterized by extremely low values in regard to spiral [E.Y. Editor’s note: For you more technical readers, apparently in the translation into English, this word “spiral” has been used in the place of “inductance”, which would be the correct electrical concept to go along with capacitance or capacity.] and capacity, may under certain influences oscillate with a very high frequency and give off radiations of various wavelengths, just as the cells of the glow-worm give off visible radiations. The capacity and the spiral of these elementary circuits are, however, of a complex nature; they depend chiefly on the form and the length of the filaments, with their rings and sinuosities, together with the relative dimensions of the cell in regard to the filament. After a certain time and under the influence of a specific cause two mutually attractive poles arise in the protoplasm, the filaments are broken up, separated and orientated, to be finally united round each pole when the cell is then ready to divide (see Figure 13). Figure 13 CHARACTERISTICS AND WAVELENGTHS OF CELLULAR RADIATION It is now clear, from the constitution of cells as revealed by the microscope and morphological studies, that each cell is capable of being the center of oscillations of very high frequency giving off invisible radiations belonging to a gamut close to that associated with light. Let us take, for example, the Corynactis viridis, magnified 1,000 times. From its actual size I calculated approximately the probable self-inductance of these intermingled circuits (Fig. 14). The capacity, however, is very difficult to determine. Taking certain average values, I found a radiation localized in the infra-red region. It is also possible to obtain a range of wavelengths—admittedly a rough approximation— by measuring the length of the filament and multiplying it by two. It is highly probable that the cells whose filaments are insulated at both extremities vibrate on the half-wave principle, that is to say have a wavelength nearly double the length of the filament, as the electric dipoles of Hertz. But these methods are not accurate and give but one type of wavelength. We shall see later why cells oscillate and under what influence. For the time being I hope I have convinced the reader that living cells are, according to their constitution, capable of oscillating and of emitting radiations. [E.Y. Editor’s note: I must jump in here again to point out that his above crude calculation of “antenna action” within a cell ignores higherfrequency modes of vibration. His argument above only helps us ballpark the likely LONGEST wave length (lowest frequency) vibrations the cell is sending & receiving. Without getting into antenna theory, just know that this is the case!] Fig. 14 It is this phenomenon of radiation which lies at the root of the famous mysterious sense in birds and insects, that special instinct postulated by naturalists. It is by means of this internal cellular radiation that the glow-worm produces its own light which is never extinguished. It is a similar radiation, with a different frequency, which endows insects with an occult faculty, not arising from the olfactory sense, but from a radiation in the ether. It is the same radiations which create and maintain life, or, at least, which show themselves to be a direct and inseparable manifestation of it. It is these radiations that are emitted by the ovaries of the female of the Bombyx and that attract the males. It is these radiations emitted by the micro-organisms of decomposing meat that attract blue flies and 23
burying-beetles. It is these radiations that direct, across great distances, owls, lemmings and bats towards their prey and enable carrier pigeons to find their course. All the apparent mysteries involved in the instincts and social habits of insects, birds and other creatures, now become explicable. Naturalists who have studied these phenomena have nevertheless failed to solve the problem that Nature has put before us under such a baffling aspect. This theory throws a new light on the riddles associated with radiation and with life itself; it is susceptible of many useful applications and appears to be the keystone of the great problem of animal intelligence. NATURE OF CELLULAR RADIATION It is gratifying to record that the investigations I have carried out in this field, largely inspired by the researches of Professor d’Arsonval and by the late Daniel Berthelot, have been confirmed by the recent experiments of Gurwitsch and Franck, as well as by those of Albert Nodon, President of the Societe Astronomique of Bordeaux, who has been engaged for some years in the study of “actino-electric” phenomena produced in the living organism by ultra-short waves. These researches are particularly concerned with the radio-activity of plants and animals. [E.Y. Editor’s note: The word “actino” is an old word frequently used a long time ago to refer to what we now popularly call ultra-violet radiation.] A. Nodon has carried out many experiments, with the aid of appropriate electrometers, with a view to comparing the radio-activity of plants and animals with that of mineral radio-active substances such as salts of radium and uranium. The measurements recorded by Nodon were derived from many sources; grains of pollen, cloves of garlic, onion, potatoes freshly dug up. It follows from these experiments that the so-called “radio-activity” is comparable to that of uranium, or to put it differently, that it causes the electrometer to discharge in 25-500 seconds, according to the nature and the mass of organic tissue. Extending his field of observations to animals, Nodon has shown that golden, black and green beetles, flies, spiders and other living insects, give off an amount of radioactivity equivalent to three to fifteen times the uranium value for an equal mass. In passing, let us observe the fact, clearly confirming my theory of cellular oscillation, that dead plants and animals do not give any evidence of detectable radio-activity, for it appears that natural radiation is essential—and seems sufficient—for the maintenance of life. Indeed this radio-activity is but a manifestation of cellular oscillation. If the nucleus is destroyed oscillation ceases and the cell dies. These observations, in addition to experiments on the human subject, have enabled Nodon to come to the following conclusion: “It appears from the recorded facts that the vital cells of the human body emit electrons generated by an actual radio-activity whose intensity would seem to be much more considerable than that observed in insects and plants.” (A. Nodon, “Les nouvelles radiation; ultra-penetrantes et la cellule vivante.” [Revue Scientifique, October 22nd, 1927. text, p. 609.]) The fact that there should be a certain emission of energy in living beings, or a re-emission implying a previous activity, can hardly be doubted. The question is whether there is transport of energy by means of electrons or transmission of energy by means of waves. For my part I find it difficult to imagine that electrons may be transported over such considerable distances as those brought into play in certain biological phenomena, namely, instinct in animals and their powers of orientation, and the ways and means whereby their existence is maintained. There is every reason to believe that electrons are produced only locally as a result of electric polarization of organic tissues, but we must also bear in mind the actual phenomena of induction and detection in which waves play a leading part in the human organism, as the result of oscillation of an organic circuit consisting of the cellular nucleus. Moreover, Nodon has obtained what may be called “spontaneous radiographs” by placing living things (plants, insects) directly on photographic plates. Clear pictures were duly registered after an exposure of several hours. Nodon’s conclusion was as follows: “It seems probable that matter, under the influence of radiations whose wavelength is less than that of the diameter of the electron, may be subjected 24
to certain modifications of unknown nature (?) which may confer new properties on matter, different from those conferred by radiations of much greater wavelength, and not connected with electrons.” [E.Y. Editor’s note: Those of you familiar with the Russian-named photographic phenomenon called Kirlian Photography will sense a tie-in here!] The interpretation of these results appears to me to be much simpler. We are actually living in the midst of fields of cosmic radiations, comprising the whole range of waves, from the longest to the shortest. It must be obvious, as I have shown in the preceding chapters, that cosmic radiation induces in the cellular nuclei of the organism certain electrical phenomena, and, conversely, that the internal phenomena of the organism, notably nutrition, bring into play a series of electrical oscillations within the cells. The theory which I have formulated on the oscillation of living beings accounts for these phenomena. The living cell is an actual oscillator and an electric resonator. Its “constants” are fixed by the form and the nature of substances entering into its composition. The renewal of these substances by means of nutrition gives rise to local electronic effects, due to electrons liberated by chemical reactions of the living organism, which modify the electric constants of the cellular nucleus. On the other hand, radiations emitted by living beings do not entirely consist of radio-active radiations, for there are also calorific, infra-red and luminous radiations (glow-worm, mushrooms, micro-organisms and animalculae). In this connection let us mention the discovery made by Gurwitsch and Franck of the “mitogenetic rays” which are given off the stalks and roots of freshly cut vegetables, so long as the cellular nucleus is not destroyed. These rays have been identified as being similar in nature to ultra-violet radiations and their discovery constitutes an important confirmation of my theory of cellular oscillation. At a time when the adherents of the emission theory of light are again confronted with the opponents supporting the undulation theory, it may not seem inopportune to reconcile the Newtonians with the followers of Huyghens by showing, as de Broglie has done, that the electron is, after all, but a system of waves. Therefore it is conceivable that cosmic radiations may integrate or disintegrate electrons within the atom. Again, the existence of more and more penetrating cosmic rays is being demonstrated frequently, and, at the present time, there is no justification for anticipating a minimal limit to the magnitude of ultra-short waves. Up till now the study of the highest frequencies has been handicapped by instrumental imperfection. Hence there seems to be no valid reason for postulating a “living atom”, as conceived by Nodon. Indeed it seems simpler to conclude that all living organisms, whether plants or animals, consist of electromagnetic systems normally in equilibrium under the influence of a field of cosmic radiations combined with internal radiations such as those conditioned by nutritional processes. Excessive or deficient amplitude of this radiation must involve oscillatory disequilibrium which is fatal to the organism. This state of affairs may be brought about simply by variations in the characteristics of radiations which modify the functional activity of the transmitter or cellular-resonator. Certain physicists and radio-electricians have objected that my theory contradicts the facts, because cosmic rays are so penetrating that they can go through a mass of lead 7 meters thick or more, and therefore cannot make the nucleus of the living cell oscillate, which constitutes in itself an oscillating circuit of far greater magnitude than is commensurate with the action of cosmic waves. To this objection I may say that cosmic waves cover the whole range of wavelengths, even those measuring several thousand meters, a fact observed by radio-electricians in the reception of all frequencies resulting in “atmospherics”. Furthermore, each group of cells possesses its own frequency with its characteristic vibrations, and each individual frequency may be identified in the vast gamut of cosmic waves. Finally we shall ascertain later the consequences of my theory of cellular oscillation by observing the effects of modifications in cosmic radiation following interference resulting from l. activity of sunspots, 2. secondary radiation of waves absorbed by the soil, 3. therapeutic application of oscillating circuits.
Hatonn: I am hoping that the mechanism of say, a substance with a frequency of colloidal silver, can disrupt the oscillation frequency of, say, a virus which is oscillating at a different rate. It is quite simple in concept and actuality. It is also apparent that “softer” oscillation frequencies will not damage normal function or oscillation of cells in their proper status. It may well now become obvious why, if we take Dria cells which can program to any oscillation frequency presented in its programming, you have a carrier mechanism which will disallow the formation or full function of mutated cells in any normal functioning life system. It will also, as we move along, be obvious why the Mito-chonDRIAS can clean out plaque formed of cholesterol fat sticking to arterial and venal walls. Mitochondria is the converter of so called glucose products to fuel. Dear ones, if you learn how your body works and realize it is but a superbly constructed ELECTRIC machine, you will find things really changing in your living patterns. You will also find that as SOUL or eternal prana (LIFE) energy is separated from the machine—the machine dies and all cells start shutting down and finally move to the negative side of the picture—and decay. Keep your SOUL in a negative state of decadence and degeneration and it too shall degrade into decay and “death”. I do not need to argue this matter—THIS HAPPENS TO BE THE WAY IT IS AND DEBATE OR ARGUMENT WILL NOT CHANGE ONE IOTA OF THE FACTS OF THE SCIENTIFIC TRUTH OF IT. Disagree if you will, but so far the scientists have fed you garbage instead of truth and you are in total decline as a species and as a planet. Good afternoon.
CHAPTER VI MODIFICATION IN CELLS AND OSCILLATORY DISEQUILIBRIUM [Oscillatory Action of Microbes; Experiment Demonstrating Electrical Properties of Microbes; Effect of Radiations; the Radio-Cellulo-Oscillator; Therapeutic Tests on “Experimental Cancer in Plants”; Lakhovsky’s Theory in Relation to Pathology of Cancer; Significance of Temperature of Human Body; Fever and Its Functions.] OSCILLATORY ACTION OF MICROBES The knowledge we have acquired concerning cellular radiation enables us to consider, under a new aspect, the problem of the pathological condition of cells which, as we have seen, function as minute living resonators. I have pointed out that life—a phenomenon of oscillation in the cellular nucleus—is the outcome of radiation and is dependent upon it for its maintenance. We can easily understand that life, considered as a harmony of vibrations, may be modified or destroyed by any condition causing oscillatory disequilibrium, particularly by the radiations of certain microbes which overcome the radiations of weaker or less resistant cells. It is essential that the amplitude of oscillation should have an adequate value so that the organism may be in a sound defensive state against the harmful radiations of certain microbes. The microbe, as a living organism, vibrating with a frequency lower or higher than that of the organic cell, causes, in the living being, an oscillatory disequilibrium. The sound cell which can no longer oscillate normally is then forced to modify the amplitude or the frequency of its own vibration which the microbe overcomes more or less completely by induction. As a result of being forced to vibrate under abnormal conditions the cell can no longer function normally; it is, in fact, a diseased cell. In order that it may be restored to health it must be treated by means of a radiation of appropriate frequency which, in recharging the cell with the required energy, achieves the dual purpose of restoring it to health and to its original normal state. [H: I have added emphasis, for herein, READERS, are you getting the facts of LIFE and those universal secrets you claim to want.] The action of this auxiliary radiation neutralizes and overcomes the detrimental action of the microbe. The action of the microbe on the living cell may be reduced to the action of an oscillation on another oscillation. It is essentially comparable to the forced vibration induced by a small heterodyne generator in a resonating circuit tuned up with the incoming oscillation. The action of this local generator falls into line with that of the radiation which is “in resonance”. According to the value of its frequency and amplitude, 26
this auxiliary vibration modifies and modulates, to a greater or lesser extent, the initial vibration which may be reinforced or more or less eliminated. It cannot reasonably be held that what is valid in the case of organic cells in living beings is not also valid in the case of microbes which likewise consist of individual cells. The microbes, constituted by a cell with a nucleus, also emit radiations. Whenever these elementary forms of life come in contact with highly organized beings, the result is what may be termed a “war of radiations” between the microbes and the healthy cells. The problem confronting us is somewhat analogous to the dilemma in which a rescuing individual finds himself when rushing to succor a friend in danger. He sees him faced by powerful aggressors but he dare not make use of his weapons for fear of injuring his friend struggling with his assailants in an inextricable scuffle. Similarly, harmful microbes and healthy cells would be equally exposed to any electrical or radioactive agency that might be employed to counteract certain detrimental radiations. It is difficult to destroy the microbes without injuring the host. Indeed, since the time of Pasteur, the main object has always been to kill the microbes. This method has a great DISADVANTAGE FOR IT DESTROYS, BESIDES THE OSCILLATION OF THE BACILLUS, THE OSCILLATION OF THE CELL IN CONTACT WITH IT. Experience in the treatment of cancer and tuberculosis with radium, X-rays and ultra-violet rays, has shown the great difficulties involved in the form of therapy. EXPERIMENTS DEMONSTRATING ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF MICROBES. It is perhaps to be expected that some people may express astonishment that an electrical theory of life and of the living cell should be extended to microbes, for until now microbes have not been studied from an electrical point of view. Let us refer to an experiment, carried out by biologists, which demonstrates that microbes are endowed with peculiar electrical properties that have remained hitherto unexplained. The microbe of typhoid (Bacillus typhosus) and the Bacillus coli are extraordinarily alike (Figs. 15 and 16 next page). The typhoid bacillus causes typhoid fever in man; it is found in the organs of typhoid patients and it can be cultivated. It is shaped in the form of a rod and measures 2 to 3 x 0.7 microns. This form of the bacillus may undergo modification. It is very motile, possesses vibratile cilia, and travels swiftly across the microscopic field. As regards the Bacillus coli, it is invariably present in the intestine, in man as well as in animals. It is generally harmless, but it may become pathogenic. This latter variation resembles the typhoid bacillus, but is less motile and shows but few cilia. It is also susceptible of cultivation. Fig 15, 16 These two micro-organisms were selected for the following experiment. A mixture of these two bacilli (B. Coli and B. typhosus) was put in a liquid of slight electrical conductivity into which two electrodes were introduced and connected respectively with the positive and negative poles of an electric battery. It was then observed that the typhoid bacilli were attracted to one of the poles while the coli bacilli were attracted to the other pole. Thus the strict separation of the two types of bacilli was accomplished, the pathogenic and the non-pathogenic. This experiment has even been filmed, and it is interesting to watch, as soon as the current operates, these microbes rushing, some to the right while others proceed to the left. This phenomenon, hitherto inexplicable, shows that microbes possess electrical properties of which we were not previously cognizant. Moreover, we know that in highly diluted solutions certain chemical compounds are dissociated, with the result that electrical charges appear, equal, but of opposite signs. For instance, sodium chloride, NaCl, is dissociated as sodium, Na, positively charged, and chlorine, Cl, negatively charged. Thus we may explain by analogy that the typhoid and the coli bacilli may undergo differentiation, from an electrical point of view, 27
according to their chemical composition, just as sodium and chlorine are differentiated under suitable conditions. In my opinion the coli bacillus becomes harmful only because it is capable of modifying, in general, the characteristics of the cell: capacity, self-inductance and conductivity. It follows that the coli bacillus, vibrating with the same frequency as the living cells, has no harmful effect on them, as it does not modify the wavelength of the cells. On the other hand, the typhoid bacillus, whose electrical properties are different, as the result of the differentiation of its chemical components, vibrates with another frequency, and modifies, by forced induction, the oscillatory equilibrium of the cell. EFFECTS OF RADIATIONS With regard to the modifications effected by microbes in tissues and cells, let us endeavor, in the light of our theory, to find an appropriate remedy. The problem is, not to aim at killing the microbes in the living organism, but to activate normal cellular oscillation by bringing a direct action to bear upon the cells by means of appropriate radiations. [H: Readers, this is so important that I have to stop and caution you to LEARN what is offered here—not just scan over it as an interesting article. This is the essence and total cause of all disease and how it can be countered—IT IS YOUR LIFE.] My experiments have shown that with ultra-short wireless waves or with oscillating circuits in the form of collars and belts, it is possible to establish equilibrium of cellular oscillations and to overcome the effect of microbic oscillations. [H: We use Drias internally—same results. It also explains why compatible intestinal flora are not destroyed by our products.] The type of radiations produced by the waves in question is harmless, thus differing in that respect from X-rays and radium. Hence it should be borne in mind that their application is devoid of any risk. Furthermore, medical science makes use of high-frequency currents advocated by Professor d’Arsonval long before the discovery of the triode valve. This method has given excellent results. THE RADIO-CELLULO-OSCILLATOR. Having evolved a transmitting apparatus I experimented with a certain number of bacterial cultures which I subjected to the field of its influence for many hours. The result was that the cultures continued to grow normally. Moreover, I have never felt any malaise myself from these experiments although I was occupied for several days in manipulating this wave-generating apparatus to which I gave the name of Radio-cellulo-oscillator. We are dealing here with an apparatus generating wireless waves, whose construction is immaterial, provided it produces the required radiation. The fundamental wavelength of this radiation is subject to variation. Its actual magnitude is conditioned by the nature of the cells undergoing treatment, but up to the present time I have used waves varying from 2 to 10 meters [approximately 100-200 million cycles per second in frequency]. It is only when living entities, such as the cell and the microbe, are in contact, that the rays given off by the radio-cellulo-oscillator are brought into action so that the oscillatory equilibrium of the cell may be re-established. It is the cell itself which, by recovering its vitality, thanks to the radiation of the auxiliary oscillator, succeeds in destroying the microbe. The experiments which I carried out at the Salpetriere Hospital with Professor Gosset, Dr. Gutmann, and M. Magrou, were concerned with cancerous plants, inoculated according to the method of Erwin Smith. These experiments were the subject of a communication addressed to the Society de Biologie, on July 26th, 1924. The text of this communication is given below. THERAPEUTIC TESTS ON “EXPERIMENTAL CANCER IN PLANTS” (By A. Gosset, A. Gutmann, G. Lakhovsky and J. Magrou.) Experiments have shown that it is possible to produce, in various plants, tumors comparable to cancer 28
in animals by inoculation with Bacterium tumefaciens (Erwin F. Smith, An Introduction to Bacterial Disease of Plants, Philadelphia and London, 1920). One of us (J. Magrou, Revue de Pathologie comparee, March, 1924.) has obtained experimentally by this method a large number of tumors. These tumors continue to develop indefinitely; under certain conditions they may undergo partial necrosis, but they do not perish entirely until the whole plant, or at least the branch bearing the tumor, succumbs to cachexia. Even when surgically removed these tumors invariably recur. We propose to describe in this note the action of high frequency electromagnetic waves, generated by an apparatus designed by Lakhovsky for therapeutic purposes, in accordance with his theories. (Georges Lakhovsky, Radio Revue, Nov. 1923, Le Conference a l’Ecole Superieure des P.T.T., 2 Jun. 1924.) This apparatus has been named the Radio-cellulo-oscillator and gives off oscillations whose wavelength (___ = 2 meters approx.) corresponds to 150 million vibrations per second. The first experiment began with a plant (Pelargonium zonatum) or Geranium taken a month after inoculation with Bacterium tumefaciens. It was affected at that time by small white tumors of the size of a cherry stone. The plant was exposed to radiation on two occasions at twenty-four hours’ interval, and during three hours each time (Plate I). plate I For a few days following treatment the tumor continued to grow rapidly, like the control tumors, forming a great multilobar mass. About sixteen days after the first treatment the tumor suddenly began to undergo necrosis. Some time later (about fifteen days) the necrosis was complete; the lobes of the tumor, shrunk and desiccated, were separated by furrows of elimination from the stalk that bore them, and the tumor itself offered no resistance to the slightest traction. The necrosing action of the radiations were rigorously selective and strictly limited to the cancerous tissues which were attacked as far as the deepest site from which the tumors originated. The healthy parts, stalk and leaves, were left intact and the plant retained all its vigor. A second geranium was similarly treated. In this case the duration of the exposure to radiation was prolonged (eleven séances of three hours each). Sixteen days after the first séance the tumor that the plant bore began to undergo necrosis and a few days later it was completely dried up. As in the first experiment, the healthy parts remained intact. In a third geranium subjected to radiation during nine hours (in three séances of three hours each), necrosis of the lobes of the tumor followed the same course. Sixteen geraniums were set aside as controls and were not treated. All of them bore tumors in full activity, often enormous (Plate II see next page). plate II In conclusion, we are justified in stating that the geraniums that became cancerous after inoculation with Bacterium tumefaciens, a condition for which surgical intervention failed to prevent recurrence, appeared to be cured under the influence of certain electromagnetic waves previously mentioned in this communication. (Surgical Clinic of the Salpetriere.) The outcome of these experiments seems to be perfectly clear. On the one hand, a great number of plants inoculated with Bacterium tumefaciens and left untreated, have shown the development of tumors of considerable size and sapped their vital energy, ultimately causing their destruction. On the other hand, the plants treated by means of oscillations, and selected at random among the inoculated geraniums, were not only rapidly cured but were still flourishing even in winter, while the geraniums not inoculated, duly produced flowers, but less conspicuously developed. The remarkable photograph of a cured geranium in Plate III (See next page) should be of great interest to flower gardeners. plate III 29
MY THEORY IN RELATION TO THE PATHOLOGY OF CANCER Statistics show that, in the majority of cases, cancer occurs in old tissues. Our task therefore is to find out what chemical changes take place in the blood or in the cells of elderly people, for, according to my theory, cancer occurs as a result of variations of cellular oscillations caused by modifications in the electrical capacity of cells. By way of example let us consider the formation of globulins. (A general name for various proteins, including globulin, vitalin, serum-albumin, fibrinogen, myosin and globulin. Translator notation.) Analysis of the blood of elderly people has shown the presence of globulins rich in iron and phosphorus, built up from debris of fibrin, leucocytes (white corpuscles) and erythrocytes (red corpuscles). According to the investigations of several workers such as Achard, Aynaud, Bizzozera, Eberth, Hayem and others, there appears in the blood, from the age of 40 to 50, a number of flat corpuscles in the form of pellets, named globulins. Professor Aynaud has shown that globulins contain various mineral substances, representing one-sixth of the dry weight. The ashes of globulins show, on analysis, constant proportions of phosphorous, iron, sulphur and calcium. In addition to mineral substances, globulins contain organic compounds such as lecithin whose chemical composition is akin to that of cholesterol which is found in all tumors of the skin. Professor Roffo, the eminent cancerologist, has shown that cholesterol is found in all malignant tumors of the skin. Now cholesterol, according to Roffo’s experiments, is susceptible to the influence of solar radiations, particularly those in the ultra-violet region. [H: You have to begin to pay attention, readers, for this is certainly “old” information and yet it is now being introduced to your attention as if it were just now discovered. I am amazed, if anything can amaze me, about your races, that any of you are still in survival beyond the profession set forth claiming to save your good health while they batter you to death with knife and denutritionalization. Lecithin, as a for instance, is not only “like” cholesterol but will keep plaque of fatty type cholesterol from settling out and sticking to blood vessel walls. Please keep going and you are going to find all sorts of hidden-from you “stuff”.] In a recent study Roffo has established the fact that when the food of experimental rats is mixed with irradiated cholesterol (produced by sunlight or ultra-violet rays) malignant tumors (sarcoma) develop in 55 percent of the cases, while in rats fed on non-irradiated cholesterol no tumors were observed at all. The transformation of cholesterol involves the production of hydrocarbons which, by virtue of their radio-activity, act on the chromosomes of the cell which are destroyed, owing to “interference radiation”, with the result that only mitochonDRIA are left. These organic units being considerably smaller and having a far greater frequency than the chromosomes, continue to oscillate and to develop while also acquiring a cellular membrane. Hence the formation of the neoplastic cell. The action of globulins in the causation of cancer now becomes more apparent. They contain, on the one hand, phosphorus (phosphorescent radiation in the presence of hydrocarbons found in globulins), and, on the other hand, mineral substances such as iron, calcium, sulphur, which increase the conductivity of the cells. As in Roffo’s experiments in which hydrocarbons caused cancer in mice fed with irradiated cholesterol, so, too, an excess of globulins in the organism from the age of 40 onwards, which introduces in the tissues the same hydrocarbons as in irradiated cholesterol, plays a part in the causation of human cancer. Furthermore, the researches of several investigators have shown that globulins agglutinate very rapidly and have a tendency to unite with organic particles, forming a covering which, by its presence, disturbs the oscillation of normal cells, finally giving rise to cancer. [H: The preceding two paragraphs are indeed VERY important.] It has also been observed that the number of white and red corpuscles is markedly smaller in old people than in adults, and according to certain investigators, both types of corpuscles, red and white, are transformed into globulins. Hence in old people the chemical composition of the blood is not the same as in adults. 30
Thus my theory provides a basis for the explanation of the phenomenon of cancer whose primary cause is still unknown, whether it be microbic or not. We also know that cancer may be grafted into a healthy organism but that the graft does not always “take”. In such a case the normal oscillation of healthy cells overcomes the oscillation of the neoplasm (cancer) which fails to develop. On the other hand, if the graft is implanted into a group of abnormal cells such as “beauty spots”, it often “takes” because the abnormal cell has a different rate of oscillation from that of the normal cell. [H: This next is also very important and worthy of your careful study.] From these experiments it was finally concluded that cancer was not contagious and therefore that it was not due to a microbe. From my standpoint I compare the cancerous cell to a micro-organism, having a nucleus just like ordinary cells, but whose frequency and oscillation is different from that of healthy cells. The only harmful microbes are those that destroy or modify the normal oscillation by altering the electrical capacity of cells; and as for harmless microbes, it may be assumed that they vibrate with the same frequency as healthy cells, or that their chemical composition corresponds to the electrical capacity and resistance of the cellular environment. It is known that the lactic acid bacillus, yeast, etc., are not harmful any more than the coli bacillus under normal conditions, for, having the same oscillation as the healthy cells, they do not modify their frequency and therefore the cells do not undergo any alteration in spite of the presence of these bacilli. Thus, in aging tissues, an increase in the quantity of molecules containing metals (iron, etc.), due to globulins or other substances capable of modifying the electric constants of the cells and the blood, affects the internal capacity and electric resistance of every nuclear circuit. The circuit formed by the organic filament no longer possesses the same electrical capacity, indispensable for its equilibrium, for its specific wavelength has been altered. It follows that the frequency of oscillation is no longer the same. It has been definitely modified and differs from the specific frequency of healthy cells. On the other hand, the diversion of cells which takes place as a result of the increase of the metalcontaining molecules derived from the accretion of globulins or other carcinogenic substances, serves to increase the electrical capacity of other cells which causes a disturbance of their oscillatory equilibrium. As soon as the natural frequency is modified and the ocillatory equilibrium disturbed, the healthy cells, instead of dividing normally by karyokinesis [indirect cell division, the common mode of reproduction of cells] divide into neoplastic (cancerous) cells which vibrate with a different frequency. These new cells then act by direct induction and forced vibration upon the other neighboring cells, which they force to oscillate with the frequency characteristic of cancerous tumors, and thus transforms them into cancerous cells. The alteration of the tissues spreads by degrees and results in the appearance of a cancerous tumor. Thus the primary cause of this alteration would seem to be a change of frequency on the part of healthy cells owing to an increase of globulins too rich in iron and phosphorus in cells already weakened. At the age of about 50 certain organs undergo chemical modifications. The capacity and wavelength of the cells are also modified and they begin to vibrate with a different frequency, as stated before, forcing cellular division to become neoplastic (cancerous). The increase of globulins and other carcinogenic substances occurring at a certain age, in modifying the frequency of healthy cells whose electrical capacity is altered in consequence, or even in abolishing completely their normal oscillation, causes not only cancer, but also most of the diseases of old age. For cancer is but one of the diseases of old age; it proclaims the degeneration of the organism. I am convinced that ultimately we shall succeed in finding ways and means of regulating the capacity and the wavelength of cells. When this object is achieved there is no reason why human life should not be prolonged far beyond its present span. We observe, however, that in spite of modern hygiene, the mortality from cancer remains enormous. In my opinion this is due to a reason which should be rather reassuring, I mean the progress of science, paradoxical as it may seem. As a matter of fact, the average expectation of life (i.e., mean duration of life) which was about thirty-nine years in the last decade of the past century, has risen to the figure of fifty or even higher in certain countries, thanks to the progress of surgery and hygiene, which has prevented a large number of deaths formerly due to contagious or organic diseases. 31
Cancer, so often incurable, attacks people who have reached the early fifties. The increase in the average expectation of life affects all classes of the community so that more and more people reach the “cancer age” and succumb to the disease. In view of the rapid progress made in medical science and biology, and as some of the causes of cancer have already been definitely established, we are justified in hoping that this terrible disease will soon be conquered. SIGNIFICANCE OF TEMPERATURE OF HUMAN BODY FEVER AND FUNCTION In the light of my theory it is possible to explain the phenomenon of maintenance of constant temperature in the human body. Let us first consider how temperature is kept constant. Food, absorbed and chemically transformed by digestion and other internal processes, reaches every cell after having been assimilated partly by the blood and the protoplasm respectively. Food materials thus give rise to biomagnomobile entities which constitute the elementary units of living organisms, as molecules and atoms make up chemical substances. Foodstuffs convey to these units all the chemical elements, metals, metalloids, besides conducting and insulating compounds necessary for building up the organic filament, its nucleus and membrane. The nucleus is made up of two distinct parts. 1. Inside the filament, a mineral substance capable of maintaining to a certain degree the conductivity of the filament. 2. Covering the filament, a membrane consisting of a dielectric substance intended to insulate the filament itself. We know that any oscillation in an electric circuit, open or closed, gives off heat produced by the passage of current through the conducting or insulating parts of the circuit. In other words, it is the friction of current against the resistance of the circuit which causes this production of heat. In every cell the filament, consisting of conducting materials more or less electrically resistant, becomes overheated by the passage of current. Thus the fact that the cells oscillate implies that they give off heat, produced by the degradation of electric energy arising from the chemical energy of foodstuffs, and also from the atmosphere (cosmic rays) as we shall see later. Let us suppose now that owing to any pathogenic agent the electric resistance of the filament of the nucleus and that of its membrane are different; the result is an abnormal liberation of heat with repercussions on neighboring cells. This emission of heat reaches the membranes of these cells so that the temperature of the body gradually rises and causes fever. It is perhaps possible to correlate these facts with the death of certain patients suffering from high fever. We have seen that the circuit constituted by the organic filament can oscillate only—that is to say, the cell can live only—if this circuit, as any other electric circuit, is insulated from the liquid in which it is immersed. In fact the membrane of the filament serves a similar function as the silk or gutta-percha covering electric wires. What happens, then, if the temperature reaches 41oC. [approx. 105.8oF]? Simply this: the insulating and resinous membrane consisting of plastin (A phosphorised protein constituting one of the chief proteins of protoplasm.) or such-like substance, surrounding the conducting filament, fuses at this high temperature owing to its extreme thinness and its general physical nature. The circuit is no longer insulated; it is destroyed. The cells, therefore, can no longer be the sources of electrical oscillations, they can no longer live, and they die. The resistance, more or less prolonged, of certain patients to this high temperature is due to the particular chemical constant of the membrane of the nuclear filament, and to its degree of fusibility. Acting on this principle it is clear that many diseases could be cured by means of fever, maintained at a suitable temperature, so that fusion of the nucleus of the microbe might be effected and the microbe consequently destroyed. 32
Thus we know that the gonococcus does not resist a temperature of 40o C. and that it is destroyed by the fusion of its nucleus following a fever exceeding this temperature. Moreover, for some time past fever has ceased to be considered solely as a pathological manifestation, harmful and inevitable. Indeed, remarkable cures have been attributed to fever which would seem to belong to the domain of empiricism, but will doubtless form part of the science of tomorrow. [Since Lakhovsky wrote this, therapeutic fever has developed into an accepted method of treatment known as Pyretotherapy. Application of heat by this method of Pyrothermy consists in a general heating of the patient with waves of about 30 meters [a frequency of approximately 10 million cycles per second]. Pyrothermy has been applied by many workers in cases of rheumatic and other diseases, including general paralysis of the insane. Its aim is the production of artificial fever. (Translator’s notation.)] [H: I would have you harken to the treatment of some diseases including AIDS wherein the blood is circulated through a conduit outside of the body and HEATED.] Hence it is not useless to study closely the causes and effects of fever, for its artificial induction and adequate regulation depend upon such knowledge. We shall see presently to what extent my theory of cellular oscillation makes it possible to attain this end. [H: Please recall the “crisis” phase which was experienced by all patients with disease prior to antibiotics. There was always a crisis in which the fevers rose drastically and then “broke” and was called “passing the crisis”. What happened was that the critical temperature was passed in which a given microbe could live and they were “knocked out”.] In this connection it is interesting to note the occurrence of fever provoked by vaccination, and we may also recall that as early as 1885 Professor Wagner von Jauregg, of Vienna, indicated the possibility of treating general paralysis of the insane by inoculation with malaria, the same method apparently having been used to cure Louis XI of epilepsy. At a time when microbes had not yet been discovered, the curative effects of fever had already been observed. Dr. Augustine Marie, an eminent French psychiatrist, mentions in a recent study the following observations made by Esquirol in his first treatise, dated 1818. “There are few chronic diseases that have not been cured by the occurrence of an unexpected fever. All our practitioners invariably bewail their inability to produce fever. Several have tried to induce it...” [H: I would now hope that you have a more healthy respect for the value of fever. You are all so fired up about knocking out the least bit of fever that you simply allow the microbes to get a better start while HOPING the microbe is not resistant to whatever antibiotic you then choose to use against the dis-ease. Often the destruction of the fever simply allows more and better microbe GROWTH without interference.] Generally speaking, cures in mental cases following fever have been observed on several occasions, especially when caused by malaria or erysipelas. It is, of course, a purely empirical procedure to inoculate a patient with a disease and risk the consequence with the intention of effecting a cure by means of the resulting fever. [H: Now adays it would be FATAL.] In my view the mechanism of the cure in question is quite simple. I have already stated that the nucleus of every cell consists of a certain number of substances whose nature and proportions are variable. Some of these substances act as conductors (mineral salts), while others act as insulators (resins, fats, cholesterol, etc.). They are arranged in such a way that the nucleus is generally found in the form of a tube made up of insulating matter (filament) filled with conducting fluid. Such are the elements of a cellular oscillating circuit. [H: This is why we offer Gaialyte for its electrolytic properties and necessary other minerals and vitamins already in a cellular form. Now, of course, we can offer colloidal gold to use in conjunction with these products and you will find gold will knock out the microbes in the cells better than anything and thus the fever present will also drop.] Now these insulating substances are all fusible at various specific temperatures depending upon their nature. The membrane of the nuclear filament is thus an insulating compound which fuses at a certain temperature varying for each particular microbe, this temperature depending essentially on the nature and the proportion of the constituent elements. 33
The maximum temperature that a cell can withstand without being destroyed is naturally related to the constitution of the nucleus since the cell dies when its nucleus has been fused. Moreover, each species of microbe is resistant until a certain degree of temperature is reached. Observations made by various workers prove that a certain number of microbic diseases may be satisfactorily treated by means of fever provided the resulting temperature and its duration are adequately assessed. But how is this to be done? By resorting to malarial inoculation or colloidal substances (quinine) which may cause grave organic disturbances that give rise to fever by reaction? But fever may be excessive and cause fusion of the patient’s healthy cells and thereby death may ensue. I have also shown that fever originated from a rise of body temperature normally kept constant by the electric resistance, in the cellular-oscillating circuit, to the passage of high frequency induction currents. A rise of temperature in the cellular oscillating circuit may be brought about in two ways: 1. Externally, by excess of induction current, arising, for example, from excess of cosmic radiation. 2. Internally, by diminution of electric resistance of the cellular filament; for example, from excess of conducting mineral substances. This is confirmed by many observations made on feverish patients. In cases of fever, a rise of temperature is invariably observed in the evening, at sunset, when the sudden reduction of atmospheric ionization due to sunlight causes a great influx of cosmic waves as well as short wireless waves. On the other hand, a decrease of temperature in fever is observed in the morning, at sunrise, owing to the diurnal attenuation of cosmic waves consequent upon atmospheric ionization through luminous rays which interfere with cosmic waves. [H: For you who work with the Gaiandrianas, this is WHY I insist that the medium/media be treated OUTSIDE around the clock! You ones simply do not know that with which you are doing and that is why all our products have OUR Gaiandriana in them—because I know the frequency and the cosmic ray impact that you simply cannot get from any kind of inside light apparatus and enough rays are blocked by building materials as to simply not be sufficient.] In the light of these observations I believe it is a perfectly sound procedure to induce attacks of curative fever, not by inoculating patients with dangerous diseases or by destroying a microbe through introducing another in the organism, but by resorting to rational electrical methods, for example, by making use of an ultra-short wave generator, such as the apparatus I have already described, in addition to using oscillating circuits and appropriate resonators. The relatively long waves used in diathermy have a frequency which is far too low to generate a sufficiently high temperature, nor do they enable us to gauge accurately the localization of the thermal effect produced. With much shorter waves, however, ranging from 1.50 to 3 meters [approximate frequency of 200 million cycles per second], it is possible to bring about far more intensive heating effects. The construction of a type of ultra-short wave apparatus of high energy potential has already been achieved to such a point that operators manipulating it have shown symptoms of high fever. An apparatus of this kind might enable us to regulate the intensity of an appropriate fever by generating the necessary heat in adequate quantity so as to fuse the nucleus of the pathogenic microbe. I am of opinion that such a method of treatment might free mankind from many diseases, especially syphilis, which is one of the gravest, for we know that the spirochaete, its causative organism, is fused at a temperature of 40ºC. Unfortunately, certain other microbes are fused at a higher temperature than our cells could tolerate, notably in the case of the bacillus of tuberculosis. In such circumstances artificial induction of fever would be impracticable and, therefore, attention must be concentrated on increasing by chemical means the fusibility of the nucleus of the microbes in question, or diminsihing the fusibility of our own cells, which would then enable us to use the ultra-short wave generator with a certain measure of success. [H: Of course the real SOLUTION is to use our products for getting rid of carrier and destructive sucking parasites, and use the rest of the dria products, which will not fuse but destroy both microbes in bacterial structure, spirochaetes AND such as HIV and other man-constructed microbe forms.]
FURTHER PROOF OF CELLULAR OSCILLATION STERILIZATION OF WATER BY DIRECT CONTACT OF MICROBES WITH METALS [H: OK, GOOD BUDDIES, LISTEN UP—HERE IS WHERE WE INTRODUCE THE INCREDIBLE EFFECTIVENESS OF OUR COLLOIDAL SOLUTIONS! SO FAR IN YOUR DISEASE ORGANISM PROGRESSION OF MANUFACTURE THE GOLD AND SILVER WILL STILL GET ALL THE KNOWN ONES TO DATE. I THINK THE SCIENTISTS MAY BLOW THEIR OWN CIRCUITS IF THEY TRY FOR HIGHER FREQUENCY MICROBES FOR THEY WILL BLOW OUT THEMSELVES. WHEN YOU REACH FOR A HIGHER MOLECULE TO HOLD TOGETHER A VIRAL CRYSTALLINE LIFE-FORM THAN TITANIUM YOU ARE “REALLY” REACHING!] In order to prove the validity of my theory of cellular oscillation, I recently carried out a series of investigations at the Pasteur Institute. As microbes or cells can live only by virtue of their high frequency oscillation, and bearing in mind the bactericidal action of metals, I concluded that, according to my theory, the following facts provided a basis for a rational explanation. It is known that the frequency of an oscillating circuit is modified by contact with a metallic substance which, in some way, short-circuits it. From this I deduced that the same phenomenon should occur in the cellular oscillating circuit, that is to say by contact of metal with microbe. The experiments carried out at the Pasteur Institute confirmed once more my theoretical views, and formed the subject of the following communication presented by Professor d’Arsonval to the “Académie des Sciences” on April 15th, 1929. MICROBIOLOGY. STERILIZATION OF WATER AND OTHER LIQUIDS BY MEANS OF METALLIC CIRCUITS IN DIRECT CONTACT THEREWITH. Notes of Georges Lakhovsky, presented by Professor d’Arsonval. (Abridged) The bactericidal power of silver has been known for some considerable time. Desiring to test the action of metals on microbes, according to my theory of cellular oscillation, which states that the nucleus of every cell or microbe is comparable to a high-frequency oscillating circuit, and knowing that the frequency of oscillation of any circuit is modified by contact with a metallic substance, I concluded that the bactericidal action of the metal was purely physical and due to alteration of oscillation of the nucleus in direct contact with the metal. In collaboration with M. Sesari, of the Pasteur Institute, I began these experiments with silver. I. Bacillus coli. An emulsion of B. coli, containing 11,280 colonies = 1,128,000 per cubic cm., was used as a standard. The emulsion was then distributed as follows into three separate vessels. A—Used as control. B—Circuit 7 flat spirals (surface area = 119 cm.2). C—Circuit 9 round spirals (surface area = 72 cm.2). After a certain lapse of time the results were as follows: Number of Colonies found After 18 hours After 25 hours Bacillus coli Circuit A ———— 43,680,000 per cubic cm. Circuit B 73,600 -0Circuit C 171,200 -0II. The same results were obtained with the typhoid bacillus. In this case the sterilization process was slightly more prolonged. III. In order to verify that the results obtained were not due to a chemical, but to a physical action of the metal, we carried out the following experiment. After having mixed the water sterilized in the previous experiment with the silver circuits (Circuits B and C), we placed this mixed sterilized fluid into three glasses, a, b, c, as follows: a—Without further treatment. b—Heated between 101o - 115o C. c—Filtered with Chamberland F.
These three liquids were then contaminated afresh with B. coli, but in the absence of the silver circuits. The titration, 10-1 : cm3, at the end of twenty-four hours, gave the following results: Control glass . . . 10-1. . . . . 946 colonies. Glass a. . . . . . . 10-1. . . . . . 12 colonies. Glass b. . . . . . . 10-1. . . . . . 13 colonies. Glass c. . . . . . . 10-1. . . . 1,474 colonies. It will be observed that the liquids a and b containing the B. coli destroyed by the previous treatment, had an immunizing effect on the newly introduced emulsion of B. coli, while in the filtered water (Glass c) the microbes developed normally. We repeated these experiments with a white metal known as platonix with the same results. From a hygienic point of view the conclusion is that a new process is available for the sterilization of water without boiling (which renders it unpalatable and deprives it of certain mineral salts) and without adding chemical substances which affect its purity to a certain degree, and, lastly, without using filters which are not always effective. I also wish to draw attention to the fact that the metal loses its bactericidal power when its surface becomes covered with a thin layer, consisting of calcareous deposits and organic matter derived from the water, which separates it from the microbes. The same phenomenon occurs in batteries and accumulators by polarization when the electrodes have to be cleaned and depolarized. The importance of this method of destroying microbes lies in the fact that without resorting to heat or chemical agents, it is possible to preserve the chemical constant of the microbe unimpaired, and this may conceivably extend the field of vaccination, especially in regard to the oral mode of treatment. Hatonn: Please go digest this writing very carefully. There are alternative methods of treating water without killing off your population and ultimately far more inexpensively than is now being utilized for purification for public water systems. I remind you ones that even if you filter your water—add a few drops of colloidal silver, or more preferable are a few drops of OxySol. I don’t believe you can get OxySol anywhere but here so choices have to be made as to your own “druthers”. We can only lead the horse to water—we can’t make it drink, so to speak. Thank you for your attention—you will find that YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF. So be it.
CHAPTER VII NATURE OF RADIANT ENERGY [What is Radiant Energy? Ionization and Conductivity; Deep Radiation and Cosmic Waves; Universion; Solar Radiation and Photolysis.] In the preceding Chapters I have shown how the sense of orientation in animals could be accounted for and how living cells were centers of radiation. I now propose to consider the origin of these radiations. Bearing in mind the relationship existing between radiation of healthy cells and oscillatory disequilibrium occurring in diseased conditions, I set out to reinforce this cellular oscillation by means of my high frequency oscillator, thus producing an extensive range of ultra-short waves susceptible of interfering with cosmic waves and of absorbing any excess of their output. The existence of these interference waves is of the utmost importance for it seems clear that only certain waves of a frequency comparable to that of waves emitted by the cells can have an influence on the radiations of the latter. In developing my theory I was faced with the problem of the origin of the energy necessary for the production and maintenance of cellular oscillations. Is it a question of chemical energy produced in living beings by internal radiations? Or is it an internal energy of physical, thermal or luminous nature? It does not seem probable, a priori, that it is a question of internal energy, any more than the electric battery, the steam engine or the dynamo, possess an energy of their own. Is it then a question of energy of external 36
origin? In point of fact it is actually a question of external cosmic radiation which astrophysicists have described as penetrating rays or cosmic rays which we shall consider in due course. In order to ascertain the origin of this energy, I devised the following experiment, similar to former experiments when plants artificially inoculated with cancer were treated by means of high frequency electromagnetic radiation which absorbed any excess in the output of cosmic waves at their maximum intensity. In this experiment I purposely dispensed with the local source of energy, that is to say, the Oscillator. [H: Note that I have been trying to get you people on your toes and get those fields “treated” in this manner. Perhaps these writings will give you more insight as to what to do THIS Fall as you prepare and plant. I know that funds are short but it takes so little IF YOU WILL JUST GET IT DONE! There is a time for each and all things and Spelta must “winter” so that the cosmic rays are sufficiently focused and the energy must be poured forth in HARMONY. Yes indeed the carbon product added is imperative, but so too are the minerals which sustain the frequencies. Then, you must plant thickly so that the product plant might deny the weeds and thistles the light of the heavens when their own season of growth is come. The fields must be given the help at onset of planting and growing—and then denied the thistles and unwanted plants of Spring. The weeds will take up the energy of that which is around them so it would be better that the desired plants bear frequencies in which the new weed seedlings cannot resonate and survive. You SHOULD have crops which have no weeds—not weeds that offer no crop as you now find. Your FARMERS must have the most talent and interest and attend in almost blind passion, their fields. This is not, thus far, what you have. Will money fix that fact? NO, money only allows for expansion and availability of “things”, not passionate self-investors. These things, however, are your choices for I am only to present the “way” and you shall do that which you will.] I took a series of geraniums previously inoculated with cancer, and placed them in separate pots. A month later when the tumors had developed, I took one of the plants at random which I surrounded with a circular spiral consisting of copper and measuring 30 cm. in diameter, its two extremities, not joined together, being fixed into an ebonite support. (An oscillator of this kind has a fundamental wavelength of about 2 meters and picks up the oscillating energy of innumerable radiations in the atmosphere.) I then let the experiment follow its natural course during several weeks (Plate IV). After a fortnight I examined the plants. I was astonished to find that all my geraniums or the stalks bearing the tumors, were dead and dried up with the exception of the geranium surrounded by the copper spiral, which has since grown to twice the height of the untreated healthy plants (Plates V and VI). (See next pages for IV, V, & VI) [H: To you who would DO these things, does it become apparent WHY I badger you? You are entering a time of such intense radiation that you are going to have to use these methods of propagation and growing systems THAT UTILIZE THE COSMIC RADIATION RATHER THAN PERISHING IN THE INTENSE LIMITATIONS. My thrust, in addition, is to offer the internal substances which offer BODY the raising of tolerance for radiation to be able to survive the cosmic rays AND utilize the food products grown in such manner as offered. You are moving into a time of such massive radiation as to kill off life. You cannot sustain selves in your denutrientized state without the necessary minerals to bear the currents being thrust upon you. When you are radiant in self—you can cast off, naturally, all bombardments of the Extra-LowFrequency waves. In fact, you will find that you simply use those ELFs as communications waves. I am come that we might INTEGRATE information—not dump salvation on your beanies.] What conclusion may we deduce from these results? That the copper spiral must have picked up external radiations, atmospheric radiations, and that it created an electromagnetic field which absorbed any excess of cosmic waves in the same manner as the oscillator in my previous experiments. The corollary of this conclusion is that the atmosphere must be permeated with radiations of all wavelengths and intensities, owing to constant and innumerable electrical discharges. Further more, we know that all types of electromotors and most electrical appliances create in the atmosphere a whole field of permanent auxiliary waves. plate IV plate V plate VI 37
Again, during the past few years wireless stations have sprung up to such an extent that there is no detectable gap in the gamut of these waves. In such circumstances it follows that any oscillating circuit of any dimension and of any shape may find, in this vast field of waves, its own particular wave which will enable it to oscillate normally. It is now clear that in order to attain this end it is unnecessary to have recourse to a generator emitting local waves, such as the Radio-cellulo-oscillator, with which I treated the inoculated geraniums in the course of my first experiments. The question that naturally thrusts itself before us now is how do the oscillating circuit and the Radiocellulooscillator act on the cosmic waves? As we shall see in due course, it is the cosmic waves which create and maintain life by making the cellular circuit oscillate. Similarly, all electromagnetic waves, light, heat, electrical discharges, X-rays, ultra-violet rays, radio-active rays, etc., possess the property of reacting upon one another and upon cosmic waves. Experience has taught us that the intensity of cosmic waves is not constant, but is maximal at night towards midnight and minimal towards mid-day, as the diurnal radiations of light diminishes their intensity. These variations are detrimental to the maintenance of the oscillatory equilibrium of cells and may give rise to disease and death. Owing to the action of the Radio-cellulo-oscillator or simply of the oscillating circuits which pick up the radiating energy in the atmosphere, and owing to the electromagnetic field thus created, excess of cosmic waves is absorbed. In the following pages we shall discuss the nature of cosmic waves and how they affect the conditions of living beings. IONIZATION AND CONDUCTIVITY Let us first remark that the subject of cosmic radiation will be made clearer if we bear in mind the following well-known fact. If a gold leaf electroscope, thoroughly insulated and placed under an airtight glass container, is charged, it will be noticed, after a certain time, that a progressive discharge takes place. If the experimental conditions are kept constant this discharge is stabilized and the wastage stops. (In certain experiments at the end of four days.) On the other hand, if the air is charged or if a fresh supply of air is introduced, the wastage continues. It seems fairly obvious that the enclosed air in the field of the electroscope should become electrified. If the air is renewed the new atmosphere must become electrified in its turn to the detriment of the electric charge of the apparatus, which explains the observed wastage. It has also been observed that this wastage increases in proportion as the pressure increases. It is clear that the insulating powers of the atmosphere must decrease as pressure increases [E.Y. Editor’s note: You technical readers knowledgeable about the area of high voltage electrical breakdown of gases will recognize the limited view and actual error in this particular statement but this was made in the 1920s when our understanding of this subject was in its infancy.]. The mass of conducting material and the number of molecules enclosed in a given volume function in direct relation to the pressure [within certain parameter ranges only]. Many scientists have studied this phenomenon, notably Gietel, Wilson and Campbell. Their observations have led them to conclude that the air was rendered conductive owing to a special cause, this is what is known as the phenomenon of spontaneous ionization. In order to ascertain the causes of this ionization scientists have investigated the influence of radioactive radiations emanating from the walls of the container and depending on the nature of these walls. In short, they have determined the nature and manifestations of all the influences involved and have observed the following phenomena. The spontaneous ionization of air placed in an airtight container (washed and polished) is not constant. It varies with the time of day and attains a maximum towards midnight. Variations of ionization show a marked similarity to variations of intensity observed in the propagation of waves, and, conversely to variations of natural electromagnetic phenomena, known as “atmospherics”. [H: I would interrupt here to point out some very important things about your HABITS. The ideal circumstance is for these rays to be renewing your own patterns AS YOU SLEEP and while your own astral being is doing whatever it is doing. This is a REFUELING of LIFE ENERGY to be utilized on “the next day” and so on. When you do not allow this “refueling” you will spiral, 38
perhaps slowly—but surely, downward into negative ranges of energy. Some people prefer to WORK during those hours of intake of higher cosmic energy because they have learned to UTILIZE that boost. However, it is better in ALL circumstances to be able to absorb that energy in proper sequence lest you be unable to find “energy” to fully function in the daylight hours. It is worthy of consideration for when mankind reversed or scattered the “sleep” time through shifts it became like the laying chickens who can’t tell day from night through artificial lighting. You as humans are created to have cycles of “night” and “day” for optimum capability of mind function. If you mess up that sequence you do great disservice to brain function and emotional stability.] Lastly, and this is still more remarkable, after diminishing slightly in intensity up to the height of about 500 - 700 meters above sea-level, the intensity increases more and more with the altitude. Spontaneous ionization increases rapidly with altitude, thus at 5,000 meters it is seven times greater than at the earth’s surface. [H: I note that somewhere in the altitude of 4,000 feet above sea-level you should be able to utilize these wondrous bits of information to maximum extent. Brothers, if you put only half a loaf into the work you would succeed in some locations. There was a REASON that some areas are considered the HUB of societal well-being and you are now moving back to recognize some of those “hubs”. MAN feeds off the ENERGY available in these places for those come before have made sure the elemental foundation is present. I am quite sad to witness a WAITING for input instead of a searching in the right places for these pieces of information. You blame your governments? No, that is a lie in the making. YOU fail to search and find the RIGHT things for your physical, and thus your spiritual, journey in truth. For instance, just yesterday in the news came discussion about a drug which would act on a “gene” which causes obesity. I am not here to argue the point, I am here to suggest that instead of asking me to offer you that substance in great secret up-front lead of product to you-thepeople, nobody has bothered to offer me the information as is even offered on your non-news. No one comes and says, “They have found that substance (drug) XYZXX silences that Gene XXXXYZ and all the world eats its plague-producing garbage without getting fat.” I am not your monitor and miracle giver. I would, however, if given information which you claim to desire having in like manner, use offered information to formulate or speak on such a subject. YOU ARE GOING TO START DOING YOUR SHARE OR YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET MY INPUT ON SUCH MATTERS. You, as a species, need to do something about your weight load, possibly, but it is not my business what you carry around on your poor insufficient legs. I further am disgusted with the vomiting and spewing in unbalanced mind to have a slim outline of figure. Are you ones totally insane? You want, want, want—and do not want to do that which is reasonable and workable from a very natural standpoint. No, you want me to bring to you miracles that require NO RESPONSIBILITY OF ACTION ON YOUR PART. NO THANK YOU! Bring me information in full and I shall give back that which you request—not until. So, how do you achieve a desired shape and form? By bringing self under control and stop the idiocy of skeletonappearance. You were MADE to be round and whole. No, I did not say “fat”, however, but moderation in all things seems to work well and, moreover, the reshaping is only holding a requirement of your self-control and attending healthy patterns in all things. Just as the mind is that which is thought—so too is the body that which you intake. It matters not to me what you “look like” for I deal with MIND and SOUL and the ability to attain the highest status of both— I weary of your focus on your mechanical-physical houses. I offer substance which can perfect your houses, keep you in total good health and raise your consciousness as well as your subconsciousness. I am not going to produce that which will allow you to abdicate your responsibilities of, at the least, attending some knowledge of these things if you would use them. GOD MAY WELL PROVIDE—BUT YOU DECIDE.] PENETRATING RADIATION We are thus brought naturally to the point of conceiving the existence of an extra-terrestrial radiation, coming from the sun, for example, or else from other sources. This radiation has been given the name of penetrating radiation.
Such a radiation plays a part in the progressive ionization of the atmosphere. As we have already learned, the intensity of a cosmic field increases with the altitude. It is natural to assume that these two phenomena are intimately related and are due to the same cause. This hypothesis is confirmed by the existence of a conducting atmospheric layer, known as the Heaviside layer [the Ionosphere], and situated at a height of 80-100 kilometers above the earth’s surface. This zone is familiar to all radio engineers. [The Heaviside layer is now generally known as the Kennelly-Heaviside layer, and is said to be ionized by the sun’s rays. It has been held to account for “fading” of wireless signals. (Translator’s notation.)] Whence comes this radiation, this energy? Does it come from the sun, the immediate source of all energy on earth? It seems probable. Does it come from other stars—more or less distant? It is quite possible. But, in any case, one fact is certain, this radiation exists. SOLAR RADIATION AND PHOTOLYSIS [H: I will interrupt here to remind all of you ones about that old argued-over “Photon Belt”. I welcome the foolish taunting of such as those who poo-poo the idea of goggles at ready and the laughing ridicule of such learned men as would be LEADERS for you-the-dumb-people in their self-acclaimed WISDOM of ego-tripping. YOU ARE IN THE PHOTON BELT! In some places the eyes are being actually burned out—literally as to vision while the eyeball itself is seared over. But this is not the reason for the EMERGENCY measures. REMEMBER: OPPENHEIMER, ET AL., FEARED THE ATOMIC BOMB MIGHT WELL IGNITE THE RADIATION BELT AROUND YOUR PLANET AND YOUR PLANET WOULD BE IONIZED!! Well, if the radiation belt is ignited by any of your new toys such as particle beams and frequency lasers, you will have a mess upon you and the resulting LIGHT, even if it “seems” dark, WILL BURN OUT YOUR EYES TO VARYING DEGREES—AND PERMANENTLY IF THE CHAIN REACTION CANNOT BE STOPPED. NO SCIENTISTS ON YOUR PLACE KNOW HOW TO STOP THAT CHAIN REACTION—SO IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF “TIME” AND THE LEVEL OF IDIOCY AND STUPIDITY UNTIL YOU NEED THOSE CUTE LITTLE GOGGLES!! We are accused of having an interest in the goggle factory to rip-off the public. Sorry, good buddies, I wouldn’t have such an interest for there are not enough bright people to keep a goggle factory in business. The masses will listen to the idiots while their eyes burn out—it is just the way of it. More sunglasses, in addition, are sold because they “look cute” than for the worthy protection they offer while people continue to bake themselves at the beaches—where the water is totally contaminated and therefore also is the sand upon which the baking takes place. It’s your life, readers—and therefore, your choices as to who you attend in the classrooms—the clowns or the wise Cohans. Sex, with or without a condom, for instance, won’t save your eyes in a radiation blast!! No relevant connection? Better check again!!] We may go even further and say that the atmosphere in which we live is permeated with a multitude of vibrations, electrical oscillations, etc., of known or unknown origin, and essentially characterized by different frequencies. We have already pointed out that sunlight forms but a very small part of the whole range of vibrations originating partly from the sun and partly from the stars and even the Milky Way. It is impossible to deny the influence of the stars in this connection. The tides, occurring twice a day, by the combined action of the moon and the sun, show that the most extensive mechanical work taking place on the earth is of astral origin. Why then should not the earth receive, from distant stars and from the Milky Way in particular, radiations of very small amplitude, susceptible of producing infinitesimal effects? Nature is the scene of a host of phenomena, alleged to be inexistent or inexplicable owing to our limited powers of perception, but whose effects manifest themselves nevertheless. Thus I postulate the existence of a multitude of radiations of all frequencies emanating from the interplanetary space and traversing our atmosphere unceasingly. To this conception I have given the name of Universion. Some of these radiations, the luminous ones, transmit through their rays a certain amount of solar energy and give rise to a process of synthesis in plants in connection with assimilation of chlorophyll. This phenomenon, which holds good for the whole vegetable kingdom, was termed photolysis by the eminent French scientist, Daniel Berthelot. Thus light would seem to play an important part in the lives of plants and animals alike. In the vegetable kingdom synthesis of organic matter is accomplished with simple elements and with the intervention of energy directly transmitted by solar radiations (light, heat, infra-red, ultra-violet and cosmic radiations) which bring about this metamorphosis. 40
PENETRATING RADIATION (COSMIC RAYS) IN RELATION TO LIFE [H: URGENTLY IMPORTANT INFORMATION.] It is actually these radiations, of very high frequency, invisible and imperceptible to our senses, which were supposed to act, according to a modus operandi we shall discuss presently, on the metallic circuit mentioned in my experiments with cancerous geraniums. It is these radiations which were responsible, in the inoculated plants, for re-establishing oscillatory equilibrium between healthy and diseased cells. These radiations, which were instrumental in curing diseased plants, emanated in my first experiments from my Radio-cellulo-oscillator. In the course of subsequent experiments carried out with a metallic spiral, the process was simpler in so far as it was the cosmic rays, filtered by the spiral, which were brought into action, finally restoring the degenerating cells of the diseased geranium to healthy activity. Thus the purpose of these radiations is to maintain, by resonance and interference, the natural vibrations of healthy cells, and to re-establish the vibrations of unhealthy cells by eliminating the radiations of microbes, differing as they do in amplitude and frequency. It is these radiations which maintain the vital activities of plants and animals. COSMIC RAYS AND UNIVERSION The hypothesis of penetrating radiations has been fully confirmed by many astrophysicists, principally in America. Penetrating radiation is now identified with “cosmic rays”, these natural rays which reach us across immense distances and consist of a vast gamut of frequencies. The discovery of gamma rays in the atmosphere some years ago led to the assumption that they were due to an emanation of radium contained in the terrestrial crust. But since then, experiments carried out in a balloon by Gockel showed that this radiation was at least as intense at a height of 4,000 meters as at the earth’s surface, instead of diminishing with increase of altitude. It has been established that this radiation is approximately eight times greater at a height of 9 kilometers than at ground level. In America, Millikan and Bowen obtained significant results at a height of 15 kilometers and also at a depth of 30 meters in Muir Lake below Mount Whitney, at an altitude of 3,540 meters. These investigators discovered that at a depth of 30 meters of water the intensity of radiation was still sufficient to discharge an electroscope to an appreciable degree. In estimating, at a depth of 7 meters of water, the resistance of atmospheric absorption above the lake, it was found that cosmic rays could penetrate more than 37 meters of water, equivalent to a thickness of 1.80 meters of lead relative to the absorbing power of this metal. Thus these cosmic rays appeared to be 100 times more penetrating than the hardest X-rays. The American astrophysicists repeated their experiments at Arrowhead Lake, deeper than Muir Lake, and also at great heights. They found that cosmic rays did not come from any particular direction, but seemed to come from all parts of space. These rays constitute a spectrum extending over an octave and their highest frequencies are nearly 2,000 times greater than those of X-rays. These radiations range, in the scale of electromagnetic waves, as far from X-rays as these are distant from luminous waves. But in striking the earth these rays are partially TRANSFORMED into softer secondary rays which are less penetrating. The researches carried out by Professor Millikan and Dr. Cameron, among others, have enabled them to measure the intensity of cosmic radiation in ions per square centimeter and per second at sea-level. The frequencies of cosmic radiation have so far been extended to 2 octaves of the electromagnetic spectrum. Astrophysicists have shown that these rays were still detectable after having penetrated through 53 meters of water and 4 meters of lead. According to Professor Millikan the origin of ultra-penetrating radiation is due to the most varied molecular and atomic changes occurring throughout space. It is the reason why he has made use of the general term “cosmic radiation”. Thus the interplanetary vacuum is but a fiction since it appears to be filled throughout by cosmic waves radiated by all the stars and asteroids, by nebulae and even by the Milky Way.
From the numerous researches of astrophysicists it appears that the existence of a range of cosmic rays permeating all regions of space and even intersidereal regions, is positively established. The inter-astral vacuum is an obsolete notion as we know that this vacuum shows evidence of considerable radiation energy, all the more intense as it is more distant from the atmosphere, and propagated in all directions throughout space. Moreover, this radiation traversing the ether of the physicists permeates all material bodies, even those of the greatest density, as we have just had occasion to observe. All the manifestations of energy on earth of which we have knowledge, directly or indirectly, are but emanations of these cosmic rays which constitute the only possible intersidereal vehicles. Let us also bear in mind that the presence of terrestrial elements, the concentration of matter and the appearance of life, both animate and inanimate, are but manifestations of these rays. Finally, the motion of the stars is maintained by the energy transmitted by these cosmic rays. In view of all these facts the suggestion of universal power derived from this conception of cosmic rays, should not be associated with the notion of absolute vacuum as implied by the ether of physicists. I believe that this ether is not the negation of all matter but rather the synthesis of all radiating forces, and therefore I have given the name Universion to the universal plexus of all cosmic rays. Universion is a conception of the infinitely great, symbolized by the boundless universe; and of the infinitely small, the granule of electrified matter, symbolized by the ion which is a world in itself. The infinitely great of the universe is, in fact, nothing but the integration of infinitely small ions. [H: I suggest that it is about time to re-run Paul’s Theory of Dimensional Life (can be found in the Phoenix Journal MYSTERIES OF RADIANCE UNFOLDED p. 59-69, Book #74) and you might find how close to truth you have been all along. The “Big Boys” KNOW all this truth— they just don’t want YOU TO KNOW.] I have elaborated this conception of Universion in another work to which readers are referred. (Georges Lakhovsky, “L’Universion”. Gauthier-Villars. Paris, 1927.) Universion is ubiquitous and all pervading. Every moment we have evidence of its presence, as effective as it is silent. The material universe and life itself are but unstable phenomena. A certain variation of the body’s temperature is enough to put an end to life and dissociate matter, thus restoring ions and electrons into the flux of Universion whence they are mobilized by cosmic rays for the creation of new material combinations and living organisms. Dissociation under the influence of temperature, pressure, electrolysis, photolysis, chemical reactions, electromagnetic and radio-active, electrical and photo-electrical reactions, such are the proofs of the existence and ubiquity of Universion. Let us not lose sight of the fact that Universion is a medium that revolutionizes established conceptions, a medium where disintegrated elements are consigned and transformed into electrical particles. These conceptions need not astonish us for they reveal nothing more, in the continuity of the universe, but degrees of condensation. The study of electromagnetic phenomena has upset the old mechanistic conceptions on the constitution of matter. And now the study of Universion and cosmic rays will extend the bounds of science and enable us to solve the most absorbing problems of life—including telepathy and transmission of thought. Hatonn: Why have we not offered this before? Why have YOU not known it before? We offered you insight and information prior to now on the very Thought of God in LIGHT and all that happened is that you allowed my scribe to be crucified on the cross of greed and corruption. No, readers, we are not going to force you to do anything about your plight. You might begin to consider, however, why the Elite of the Elite will help our team in any way they can do 42
so, for we hold the WAY and the LIFE. I would hope they get on with that appropriate help SOON because impatience is becoming my status as the days pass without meeting of agreements. We do not wish to butt into any plans of the desiring public populations, as our own intentions and experience are very limited in size and magnitude for the changing of humanity other than as humanity seeks and desires change. However, when a planet “goes” so “goes” all life-forms thereon. My scribe and team are not concerned about the INFINITE PATHWAY—they are, however, sick and tired of the badgering and beating by the physical aspect of this presentation. No indeed, I am not interested in the MASSES of walking dead—I am totally involved with the ACTING, KNOWING LIVING. Thank you for a long session. May you RECOGNIZE the Light when it hits you!
CHAPTER VIII SUNSPOTS AND COSMIC RADIATION IN RELATION TO HEALTH AND LIFE From the earliest times the influence of the stars on human life has been recognized. When science was undeveloped these notions, essentially intuitive and empirical, gave birth to astrology. At the present time, in view of our scientific knowledge, it need hardly be stressed that all these beliefs and observations should be rigorously examined. In the preceding chapter a new concept, which we named Universion, was discussed. This may be regarded as a kind of substratum in which cosmic waves of all frequencies are propagated in all directions. The cosmic waves emanate directly or indirectly from the stars and it is clear that since they come from multitudinous sources and penetrate everywhere, they must have a spontaneous influence on our living conditions as they have already been shown to have an effect in the domain of physical phenomena. We must now proceed to investigate scientifically to what extent these cosmic waves affect our existence and the scope of their influence. Before considering the general problem attention should be focussed on particular cases of cosmic radiations, such as those emanating from the sun and the moon which play a singular and preponderant part in relation to the earth. It has been shown by a Belgian engineer, M.P. Vincent, that lunar radiation was responsible for interference phenomena in the course of transmission from wireless stations. It appears that every week the recurrence of the phases of the moon corresponds with maxima and minima of intensity in the reception of electromagnetic waves. (Georges Lakhovsky, L’Universion, p. 127.) We are apt to forget that the sun, besides giving off luminous, calorific and actinic rays, also gives off electric and magnetic waves, especially during the eruptive periods of its protuberances or sunspots. Let us bear in mind that these sunspots are nothing but volcanoes and that the crater in a single one of them may measure as much as 200,000 kilometers in diameter, or more than fifteen times the diameter of the earth. In addition to light and heat, the sun sends us electromagnetic waves whose magnetic force affects the magnetism of the earth and causes deflections of the compass. The electric force of these waves also gives rise to terrestrial currents whose intensity is sometimes such that it becomes impossible to telegraph or to telephone. Magnetic storms and terrestrial currents cause grave perturbations in the field of electrical communications, wireless or otherwise. Furthermore, the phenomena of ionization caused by cosmic radiations emanating from the sun have, as a direct consequence, a marked effect in impeding the propagation of waves round the earth’s surface. This results in ionization of the upper layers of the atmosphere which renders it conductive, refractive and reflective, giving rise to “atmospherics” so familiar to radio listeners. Another important proof that the sun and stars give off radiations besides those associated with heat and light, is given by the phenomenon of aurora borealis which often accompanies magnetic storms. It is known that this is due to the fluorescence of the atmospheric upper strata brought about by cathode and X-rays which form part of the stream of cosmic rays emanating from sunspots. 43
Some astrophysicists have correlated the occurrence and intensity of sunspots with certain concomitant physical phenomena. They have observed that terrestrial cataclysms, tidal waves, and especially earthquakes, seem to be associated with sunspots, and that the presence of these sunspots, considered in relation to the earth in a periodic cycle of twenty-seven days or so, may be held to account for the occurrence of “lunations” of the sun. The cause of these perturbations is attributable to interference of these solar waves with the normal field of cosmic waves which play the chief part in the scheme of interastral mechanics. A graphic representation covering a period of years and indicating the variations of intensity in geophysical phenomena, in electrical phenomena (ionization, conductivity of gases, aurora borealis), of magnetic phenomena (perturbations in the terrestrial magnetic field, electromagnetic phenomena, etc.) shows that the different curves exhibit a remarkable degree of parallelism and that these phenomena follow closely the variations affecting sunspots. According to these curves it is clear that the variations of these phenomena are periodical and that the cycle of their manifestations occurs about every eleven years. [This is in striking agreement with a statement by Sir James Jeans in his work, Through Space and Time. Writing on the subject of sunspots, Sir James Jeans said, “A careful study of cross-sections of trees frequently shows that the rings change gradually in thickness in a cycle of eleven years which coincides exactly with the sunspot period. The thickest rings were formed in those years when sunspots were most plentiful and we see at once that abundance of sunspots goes with abundance of tree growth and so with moist summers. (Translator notation.)] Without inquiring into the cause of this periodicity we are led to the conclusion that cosmic radiations emanating from the sun cannot be confined in their effects to physical phenomena, such as electricity and electro-magnetism. They must necessarily play a part in biological phenomena also which are intimately connected with physical phenomena. The study of this question has resulted in many observations which have seldom been adequately interpreted. In the wake of physicists, meteorologists have made a certain contribution to our knowledge of sunspots. In 1651, Riccioli announced that a relation existed between the appearance of sunspots and the state of the sky. In 1801, Sir William Herschel confirmed this observation. The astrophysicist, Baxendall, showed, in 1887, how the average temperature on the earth’s surface was connected with the number of sunspots per annum, a fact which was confirmed by other observers. In Mauritius, Dr. Meldrum showed, in 1871, that in tropical regions the number of sunspots determines the number of cyclones. The observation, however, has only been confirmed in the tropics, where the maxima and minima of storms accompany with striking regularity the maxima and minima of sunspots. Tropical rains also appear to be associated with sunspots. Rainy years appear to coincide with maximal sunspot activities while drought years reflect activities of minimal order. In tropical regions, owing to the absence of clouds, the effects of the sun are more direct and easier to determine. W. Koppen, in 1873, showed that during the year preceding a minimum of sunspots, the thermometer was 0.41oC. above the average temperature while during the year preceding a maximum of sunspots, the thermometer was 0.32oC. under the average temperature. Blandford explained this by pointing out that the excess of thermal energy transmitted by the sun, causes excessive evaporation of the seas, hence the lowering of temperature. Moreaux observed that this did not apply to great continental surfaces where the elevation of temperature invariably follows the appearance of sunspots. But all these meteorological laws are, owing to their nature, far less accurate than physical laws. Nevertheless, they constitute, in so far as the effects of solar radiation are concerned, a valuable indication. Moreover, the problem of sunspots is less concerned with the qualitative and morphological aspects of the spots than with the total solar activity which brings cosmic waves into play. Again, the periodicity of solar activity is not so simple as it might appear and cannot be expressed in the form of a pure sine-wave. A vast number of harmonics superimposed upon the fundamental wave indicate that the actual periodicity of the sun is affected by that of other stars generating cosmic waves. Numerous observations made in Madras and Washington, in more than one hundred different observatories, have shown that outside the tropics, solar radiation causes two alternating periods of rain and drought in the course of about thirty-five years. Such examples could be multiplied indefinitely. A similar periodicity has been observed in the drift of icebergs and in the variation of levels in lakes. In particular, the period of eleven and half years is very apparent in the case of the Victoria and Albert Lakes in Equatorial 44
Africa while a period of thirty-three years seems to apply to European lakes. Generally speaking, direct solar activity is shown in all these natural phenomena. The domain of meteorology serves as a natural transitional link between physics and biology. It would seem rational, therefore, to investigate in what measure cosmic rays, which condition physical and meteorological phenomena, affect physiological phenomena. This idea seems to have occurred to certain scientists at a time when the tendency was to attribute all solar activity to sunspots and when cosmic rays were unknown. Sir William Herschel wrote in 1801: “It seems probable, in analyzing the period between 1650 and 1783, and judging by the normal yields of wheat, that a scarcity of vegetation occurred whenever the sun appeared to be free from spots.” In 1901 Moreaux observed that the yield of wheat in France and throughout the world generally followed roughly the variations of solar activity. He then proceeded to investigate the influence of this activity on human organisms. He expressed himself on this subject as follows: “In my capacity of Professor in a college I had exceptional opportunities for making observations. Although not being a medical man, I could not help observing a recrudescence of rheumatic affections and neuralgia, coinciding not with sunspots with the strongest magnetic deviations of the magnetic needle which seemed to indicate a kind of abnormal nervous excitement on the part of students.... and possibly of professors too, at times of solar activity. I deduced from this that a relation could conceivably exist between wars and the sun, and I published this curve of correlation on several occasions before and after the Great War.” [H: This is not some far-fetched gobble-de-gook, readers, as you will find you are right into the most chaotic magnetic time in your existence as a planet. In addition, the efforts to counter those magnetic rays from cosmic source by blanketing the Earth with an energy grid is not going to stop the bombardment of the magnetic solar rays from the Cosmos. You are seeing the results all around you and, in addition, in this day of high technology, the natural phenomena of these waves of energy and light are tampered, guided and used against you and for the evolving lifeforms on your planet.] For my part, I conceived the idea of establishing from my personal observations and those of astrophysicists, the laws to which the biological effects due to cosmic rays are subject, and particularly those effects resulting from solar activity. In comparing the charts of solar activity from the Observatory of Meudon with the statistics of winegrowing districts in Burgundy and Beaujolais, I have been able to show a parallelism existing between these statistics and the charts in question, and I concluded that the remarkable vintage years coincided with the years of recrudescence in sunspots. These observations formed the subject of an original paper entitled “The Influence of Astral Waves on Oscillation of Living Cells”, which Professor d’Arsonval was kind enough to present on my behalf to the Académie des Sciences. This paper is reproduced below. INFLUENCE OF ASTRAL WAVES ON OSCILLATION OF LIVING CELLS [H: PLEASE HARKEN-UP, READERS, YOU ARE GETTING THE VERY ESSENCE OF LIVING MECHANISMS. YOU HAVE DEMANDED THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE AND HERE THEY ARE—WILL YOU UNDERSTAND THEM AND USE THEM OR SIMPLY GO BACK TO SLEEP?] (Communication by Georges Lakhovsky presented on March 28th, 1927, at the Académie des Science by Professor d’Arsonval.) “In my work, “L’Origine de la Vie’, which Professor d’Arsonval has done me the honor of presenting to the Académie des Sciences, I formulated my theory of the influence of penetrating rays (cosmic rays) on living beings. I showed, in fact, that the nucleus of every living cell, manifesting itself in the form or a tubular 45
filament consisting of dielectric matter and filled with a conducting substance, is comparable to an oscillating circuit having self-inductance, capacity and electric resistance. Living cells can thus oscillate with very high frequencies under the influence of cosmic rays emitted by the stars. I have attempted to prove the validity of my theory by studying the influence of astral radiation (sunspots, comets, interference of astral radiations, etc.) on living matter. My observations were based on the curves of graphs drawn by the astrophysicists of the Meudon Observatory; these curves showing, since 1845, the activity of sunspots, the incidence of magnetic perturbations and of polar aurorae. These three curves are remarkably parallel. I set myself the task of studying the correlation existing between the astral radiations on the one hand, and the development of vital activity in plants and animals on the other hand. As in the case of any given individual, periods of fatigue and disease alternate with periods of good health; so too, with fruits and crops in general, there are, for every kind of product, years of good quality and years of poor quality. With regard to wine, according to the documentation established by the Chambers of Commerce of Bordeaux and Burgundy, I have noted that the remarkable years correspond exactly with a maximum of activity in sunspots, as the curves in Fig. 17 plainly indicate. The results for red wines of Bordeaux are as follows: Maximum, 1848 - Remarkable years of 1847 and 1848. Maximum, 1858 - Remarkable years of 1857 and 1858. Maximum, 1869 - Remarkable years of 1869 and 1870. Period 1880-1889 - Period of phylloxera. Maximum, 1893 - Fairly good years of 1890 to 1893. Maximum, 1906 - Good years of 1906 and 1907. (See Fig. 17 Next Page) In this connection special mention should be made of the famous wine of 1811 known as the ‘wine of the comet’—whose excellent quality may be attributed to the radiation of this comet. The same results apply to the white wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. On somewhat similar lines a communication was addressed to the Académie de Médicine by Dr. Maurice Faure and Dr. G. Sardon. (Académie de Médicine, session of March 1st, 1927.). These two physicians observed day by day and month by month the number of cases of sudden death and plotted a curve representing this phenomenon as a function of the weather. In comparing this curve with that representing the activity of solar energy they noted that these two curves showed a remarkable parallelism. Professor d’Arsonval remarked, in this connection, that this appeared to be a particular case of my theory of oscillation in living beings. [H: Do you actually think that a simple heat-wave killed so many people in one area, Chicago, as happened within this summer? Also, why were the Chicago airports without electricity and COMMUNICATIONS during parts of this same summer? When you mix temperatures of high readings with this oscillation of radiation—the elderly cannot accommodate to the changes even as readily as can youth. It is NOT simply a result of heat. During these periods of natural upheaval of any kind there is always the ability to introduce varying amounts of biologicals into the air and do some very interesting research into what bodies can tolerate. You are essentially a big research laboratory of various investigations as being worked on the population by the “Evil Empire”. The time draws near where you shall all wish you had listened to me and the ones who came before me.] It is not irrational to assume that interference brought about by sunspots may cause, if not disease, at least fatigue or transient disturbances. I have pointed out that periods of lassitude of the organism and of illness, and generally of disorders of sanitation might be attributable to interference phenomena which break up the oscillatory equilibrium of living cells. It has also occurred to me that these interference 46
phenomena due to astral radiations, could provide an explanation of the modalities observed in the growth and development of living things in both the vegetable and animal kingdoms. It is possible that the flavor of a certain fruit, for example, may be affected as a result of these interference phenomena. And if succeeding years differ from one another, from the point of view of agriculture, it is most probably due to variations of cosmic radiation. Thus we may account for good years, both in regard to quality and quantity, in the case of apples, plums, grapes, etc. If I have stressed with some insistence the foregoing facts it is to show that although the question of the influence of solar radiation on the development of living organisms is not new, since the first observations were made over a century ago, yet it is only recently that the theory of cellular oscillation has enabled us to give an adequate explanation of it, thanks to our knowledge of interference phenomena. It may be objected that the action of light and heat on plants and animals has been known for some considerable time. This is undoubtedly true, but light and heat are nothing but particular radiations of a restricted range in the whole scale of cosmic waves. Evidence to the effect that light and heat do not constitute the whole output of solar activity may be found in the character of temperature curves, recorded in different observatories. These curves indicate a multitude of local factors are involved, differing widely from one another, and, moreover, these curves are very unlike the curves representing solar activity in general. Furthermore, as we shall see in the next chapter, cosmic radiation is strongly influenced by the geological nature of the soil which, in its turn, may also give rise to interference phenomena. In spite of their evident manifestations, light and heat have, at times, but secondary effects as compared with cosmic rays that remain imperceptible to our senses. It is possibly due to its elusive nature that cosmic radiation has hitherto passed unobserved, even though its effects are preponderant. Hatonn: Please understand that duplication of waves which mimic a cosmic ray can now be manufactured so that specific trial areas can have full focus for study. Always these energy radiation oscillation studies MUST be accompanied by environmental circumstances that cover the actual dalliance and manipulations. It is not just to see who can sustain self during these environmental stresses but just how a society, in general, will react. These are the things that drive man insane in mass manipulation wherein controlled rioting with desired outcome can be arranged. I have a very important bit of insight for you to feast upon in your HOPE CHEST. If the Evil bastardbeings can’t pull off their total taking of the planet by the turn of the millennium, they are destined for the dust heap. They have to accomplish the labor by that time or the pendulum swings back into the zone of OUR SIDE. They have already announced that they are two years behind and can’t get it done until sometime like 2002. So, what are WE WAITING FOR, TEAM? If we put our backs to the wheels, our hands and minds to the pen rather than the sword, and Dharma and others who are tasked with integration of knowledge of simple foundation of life and expression, keep right on finger-dancing—there is enough HOPE built from this magnificent INTENT to swing this old globe into the Lighted Course of Creator’s Promise of LIFE. We are UP TO the task if we will but wake-up and DO IT. We certainly can if we but WANT to do so. May we come to see and comprehend our journey and our purpose within the journey. Salu CHAPTER IX INFLUENCE OF NATURE OF SOIL ON FIELD OF COSMIC WAVES CONTRIBUTION TO THE CAUSATION OF CANCER GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL DISTRIBUTION OF CANCER THE ROLE OF WATER IN RELATION TO CANCER
Nature of the Problem The studies in which I have been engaged for many years concerning the development and treatment of cancer have led me to investigate the causation of this disease which, at the present time, is the most mysterious and incurable affliction plaguing mankind. I propose showing how my researches in this direction have led me to establish that the nature of the soil modifies the field of cosmic waves on the earth’s surface. This condition may be sufficient to cause in living organisms a cellular disequilibrium susceptible of giving rise to cancer. As no satisfactory evidence has yet been adduced in support of the contagious or hereditary nature of cancer, it seemed to me desirable to investigate the role played in the development of cancer by purely physical factors. Let it be clearly understood that by cancer or cancerous, we mean the total number of cancerous affections, including carcinoma, epithelioma, sarcoma and other malignant tumors. According to all medical accounts cancer is found in every part of the world, but the forms under which it appears vary in different regions. For some time past certain observers have assigned a particular role to different geographical factors such as orography and hydrography. In 1869, Haviland stated that “The Thames and its tributaries cover a vast cancer field.” From the earliest times it has been observed that the morphology of living beings is closely connected with the nature of the soil upon which they live. The existence of different races adds support to this observation. Race is typified by marked physiological characteristics transmitted in a certain measure by heredity. But if living conditions are changed the char36 acteristics of the race undergo transformation while still remaining bound to the nature of the soil and the climate. Several investigators have stressed the important role of the geologic nature of the soil in the differentiation of racial types. The term “terroir” (smacking of the soil) which is used to describe the flavor of a certain wine, fruit or any other product of the soil, implies clearly the preponderating influence of the soil in the elaboration of these products. Observations made in this connection are very numerous and need not be mentioned here. Suffice it to say that plants grow indiscriminately on sandy soils as in the forest of Fountainebleau, but a strict selection occurs on clay and limestone. As early as 1832 a pioneer naturalist, Nérée Boubée, informed the Académie des Sciences that the cholera epidemic which was then ravaging the country, was found to have a close relationship with the geological nature of the soil. Here is a characteristic passage from his communication: “In my annual geological travels I have often observed that in the countries where various endemic diseases occur, these diseases are most often confined, in every region, to the geological limits of the predominant formations, and I had already come to the conclusion that each geological region constitutes a natural stratum for certain morbid affections; in other words, that the medical constitution of every country depends in some way on its geological and topographical constitution.” A few years later de Fourcault came to the same conclusions as Boubée in regard to other than endemic diseases. Certain elementary considerations enable us to realize the influence of the geological nature of the soil and of its constituents. Water running through a certain region reflects exactly the chemical composition of the substances that constitute that region. In water are found the same mineral salts as in the soil. Again, the nature of water conditions the development of living organisms. In regions where calcium salts are deficient in the water the results are seen in deficient dentition and fragile bones. [H: Don’t set this particular statement as above into your “concrete” burial vault because I am going to blow holes in the theory. It is correct that you need calcium salts present but that is not what causes fragile bones. You have ability to transmute Potassium to Calcium and you will find that this transmuted form of Calcium will be utilized properly rather than forming Calcium deposits. Chickens, for instance will lay Calcium deficient eggs (shells) if on surfaced pens or on clay soils. They need limestone, BUT NOT IF MICA IS PRESENT. Why? Because mica contains some silicate of potassium. Therefore you are ultimately going to find that a healthy body needs, more than anything else in the “mineral” classification for good skeletal growth and maintenance, silica. I don’t want to argue with all you nice supplement people but it is known that without Vit. D, for instance, Calcium can’t be utilized by the body. It is further recognized that in patients with compromised kidney function which disallows Potassium in abundance, the 48
children, especially, will have badly compromised bone growth because of the inability to transmute calcium. There needs to be a whole restructuring attitude about biological transmutations because your “modern” science is filled with glaring holes. But that is for another lesson.] Let us also call to mind the influence of the nature of the soil in the causation of goiter, and generally, of hypertrophy or atrophy of glands resulting from excess or deficiency of a certain mineral substance in the soil of the habitat. It is, of course, well known that goiter which is a hypertrophy of the thyroid gland, occurs in regions deficient in iodine. Although the influence of the soil is indirect, it is none the less clearly evident. Nor can it be ignored that certain diseases exist in an endemic and latent state on certain soils where they remain localized. It is specially noticeable in the case of cholera, malaria and typhoid. Objections have been raised on the ground that these highly infectious diseases are transmitted only through microbes. It remains to explain, however, the reasons why certain microbes prefer certain soils, such as mosquitoes living on these soils. It is quite correct to state that cholera breaks out preferably on alluvial tracts while intermittent fevers are more commonly found on impermeable soils (clay or marl). The influence of the soil is not only important in relation to pathological problems, but also in relation to hygiene and demography. Some time ago an Army doctor, M. Russo, sought to establish the influence of the soil on the health of the race. He showed that the most favorable conditions, from a hygienic point of view, occurred on soils of recent formation, tertiary or quaternary, followed by primary soils, granite and gneiss, jurassic, and cretaceous limestone. In connection with the cancer problem, M. Stélys, in a communication presented by Professor d’Arsonval to the Académie des Sciences (Session of April 25th, 1927) brought evidence in favour of carcinogenic soils, that is to say soils susceptible of giving rise to cancer in living organisms. [H: I trust you begin to see, as well, that by properly mineralizing crop soils you can AVOID the Big “C”. I have, however, a lot of flak from some farmers who want to argue the point even though we have source and access to such mineralized soil for the adding. However, in the testing of the produce grown it requires scientific methodology of control fields and test fields so that the variance can be evaluated. We got it half done but without a control or a measured amount added there is no way to measure anything—if indeed, any mineral was added at all. It would most surely show up in better grain and a better harvest of same, especially spelta because the kernel will be larger while the grain itself will never compromise itself. In spelta the grain will take what it needs and if it hasn’t the full spectrum of needs, will not produce. I weary of ones who won’t accept input because “somebody” else told them this or that. If you knew everything already, you wouldn’t need me in the first place. In addition, ones not willing to move in the research and production of our needs will be exchanged out for ones who want to learn for we are too short of time for harvesting seasons to allow more crop failures. You are given the gifts but you have to use them. Many, in these times of change, can suffer dearly for the failure of one to be responsible and follow through on mandatory actions. We have now lost a full year and major expense and it may not happen again.] As the documentation concerning these various hypotheses and the co-ordination of the results obtained in this field of investigation appeared to be sufficiently significant, I embodied the recorded data in a monograph entitled “Contribution to the Etiology of Cancer”, which was presented by Professor d’Arsonval to the Académie des Sciences on July 4th, 1927. In this monograph I discussed the question of cosmic radiation in relation to the nature of the soil. Our present knowledge concerning cosmic waves and the propagation of ultra-short waves through different soils has proved an adequate basis to co-ordinate the various observations and statistical data. The object of this work was to show to what extent the distribution of cancer may be conditioned by the physical nature of the soil on which people live. The problem of the etiology of cancer, considered from this point of view, has been conveniently reduced to the following three studies: 1. Demographical study of statistics on distribution of cancer, shown by the density of cancerous or cancer mortality, calculated in number of cases per 1,000 inhabitants. 2. Geological study showing the soils on which cancerous tumors develop most freely. 3. Physical study, especially from the electrical point of view, of mineral substances constituting the soils in question and of the reactions of the latter to the penetration of cosmic waves.
GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL DISTRIBUTION OF CANCER The value of statistics in medicine has often been disputed, and it has been said that no reliance can be placed upon them. But statistics, however imperfect, constitute data that cannot be ignored. It is, at any rate, a definite indication that is preferable to absence of any data at all. Although the necessary ways and means of compiling statistics in villages and the country generally are lacking, this does not apply to urban areas, where exact information and abundance of data are available. Moreover, during the past decades it has been possible to diagnose cancer with a great deal of accuracy by means of microscopic and radiographic examinations which have made the classification of cancerous diseases possible. The number of actual errors inevitably involved in such statistics are thus reduced to a minimum and cannot invalidate the general tenor of the conclusions. Besides, all the investigations I have undertaken are based on statistics relating to cities and larger urban centers. If the various districts of Paris are considered from the point of view of cancer density it will be seen at the first glance that the figures, far from being distributed in a haphazard manner, seem to vary in a continuous manner, in the algebraic sense of the term, that is to say without sudden solution of continuity. The same result appears clearly on the maps of parishes and towns. In these circumstances it is perfectly natural to think of geological or geographical distribution of cancer. The geographical distribution may be set aside without further consideration, for it would reduce itself to a mere survey of the land. The map of Paris, however, does not in any way establish the fact that the neighborhood of the Seine or the factor of altitude play an important role in this connection. On the other hand, the geological distribution gives suggestive results at the outset. The problem we have to solve is why a relatively high cancer density affects the south-west and eastern districts of Paris, while the center and north-west districts have a relatively low density [see Figure 18, Map of Paris (next page)]. Analysis shows that low cancer densities (0.5, 0.6, 0.8 per 1,000 inhabitants) coincide with a vast area of sand and sandstone of Beauchamp in proximity to limestone of the Paris basin. Medium, but still low figures, are observed in the districts of Chaussée d’Antin (0.8) and Gaillon (0.3), which correspond to an area of sand of Beauchamp. [H: Please remember this author was from France and therefore is the reason for the relative information to that geographical location. However, the information is the same in useful application to any place on the globe.] Higher figures, but still relatively low, are observed in Clignancourt (1.1) and Saint-Fargeau (1.04) where the only two outcrops of sand of Fountainebleau in Paris appear. On the other hand, we observe that the districts where cancer density is high, such as Auteuil (1.76), Javel (1.61), Grenelle (2.08) and Saint-Lambert (1.57) rest on plastic clay. Other districts, such as SaintVincent-de-Paul (1.97), l’Hopital Saint Louis (1.44), Pére Lachaise (1.58) and Charonne (1.41) are situated on marly soils (Upper Oligocene of the Paris basin and Oligocene marls of the N. of the Paris basin). map of paris The relationship observed between cancer density and the nature of the soil cannot be accepted as being mathematically correct as the geological distribution of the sub-soil presents a complexity as great as that of meteorological phenomena. Various perturbation factors must be taken into account, notably the disposition, the surface, the depth of strata and rocks, as well as variations in most sediments. The district of Maison-Blanche, for example, with a medium density (1.17) contains in its sub-soil a mixture of clay, marl, limestone of Paris basin, sand of Beauchamp, and recent alluvial deposits. Similarly with Clignancourt (1.1) and Amérique (1.34), where we find sand of Fountainebleau, limestone of Brie and Saint-Ouen, marly and recent alluvial deposits. [H: I already hear complaints about “Tell us about where we are (wherever you are)! We aren’t interested in France.” No, readers, the information and comparison information are readily available. The EARTH is basically the same all over and in the alluvial fans, for instance, you are going to find identical structure and mineralization. Do you know how sick the French are of our handling only American problems? 50
So too are the Canadians and Aussies, etc. You Americans are a spoiled bunch and it will behoove you to get busy and get answers.] With regard to the districts along the Seine, covered superficially by recent alluvial deposits, their cancer density reflects the composition of the deeper sedimentary layers. The same results are observed in the Départment of the Seine in spite of the greater diversity in the nature of rocks. Let us note that the localities with a low or medium cancer density such as Sceaux (0.8), Chatenay (0.6), Bagneaux (1), Fresnes (0.39), Suresnes (1.1) are built on sand of Fountainebleau while other localities, such as Garenne-Colombes (0.78), Vanves (1.18), Malakoff (0.98), Arcueil (1.27), MaisonsAlfort (1.29) are built on the limestone of the Paris basin or the sandstone of Beauchamp; other localities, notably in the north-east of Paris are built on recent alluvial deposits and gypsum . [H: Ah, so limestone and sandstone minerals are very, very important, are they not? You will note, however, that “just being on limestone” isn’t the whole story, as we move along. It is always what is, and is not, contained in those soils.] On the other hand, localities showing a high cancer density, such as Issy (2.0), Ivry (3.26), are built on plastic clay; others, such as les Lilas (1.63), Bagnolet (1.47), Pavillons-sous-les-Bois (1.91), Nogent (1.8), Romainville (1.85), Thias (3.36) are built on limestone of Brie and marl; finally, others, such as Neuilly (2.25), L’Ile-Saint-Denis (2.16), Le Perreux (1.87), Bonneuil (3.33), are built on muddy and clayey alluvial tracts. I have applied the same method of analysis to the principal cities of France and those of neighboring countries. The results have been grouped so as to indicate the density of cancer as a function of the geological nature of the soil. (For full particulars concerning this question, including charts, maps, etc., the reader is referred to Lakhovsky’s special monograph on the subject, “Contribution a l’étiologie du Cancer”. Paris, 1927.) [H: But expect it to be in French, if you can find the material at all.] These investigations have clearly established the fact that a low cancer density is found in localities built on sand, limestone, gypsum, sandstone, certain primitive rocks and recent alluvial deposits rich in gravel and sand. On the other hand, a high cancer density is associated with localities built on plastic clay, Jurassic marl, chalk, iron ores, carboniferous beds and slate. It will also be seen that the cancer density in France is not distributed at random, but is related to natural regions corresponding to the geological nature of the soil. Thus it appears that Geneva, Bern, Brussels, Antwerp and Toulouse are built in regions of medium or low cancer density, formed by sand and alluvial gravel, sand and sandstone of Fountainebleau and Beauchamp, limestone in proximity to marl. [H: Wouldn’t it be fun to have a breakdown of the soil structure of, say, McFarland, California where children are being taken out by multiple cancers in unusual numbers—right in a heavy agricultural area?] On the other hand, the upper cretaceous formation covering the whole of Normandy, the Pays de Caux and Picardy, is noted for five localities having a high cancer density, Le havre, Rouen, Amiens, Arras and Lille. Similarly the east of France shows several regions with a high cancer density, characterized by iron ores (oolites, clay, ferruginous sandstone and marl) at Nancy and Metz, as well as carboniferous beds at Strassburg. The cancerous area of the Lyons region is also built on a Jurassic and carboniferous soil. Hatonn: We are run out of time for continuing the writing today. I hope you are able to “generalize” this information. I hope it is also becoming clear to you that there is either something present or something missing as you move to various soils. This only means that attention has to be paid to the adjustment through scientific means of balancing the soils to produce that which is necessary for the living forms in a given area. There are so many things impacting these differences, however, that there are better ways to bring the balance needed to the individuals. You are basically “stuck” with what you have wherever you happen to be finding yourself. There are, however, general things which any and all can do to overcome these lacks and overabundances. With a body in balance and a fine immune system functioning—you can handle whatever is tossed at you. God gave you minds to achieve your balance in whatever circumstances you find selves— you certainly do not have to be a “victim” of anything. 51
Will the world have access to this knowledge? I don’t know but it appears to me that you are moving backwards as the information which holds truth and the keys to good health are buried, burned and banned. We present it to you and that, readers, is all that we can do save also offer the substances which can bring stability and balance to cellular life-forms. We are not going to shove it down your throats in any way, shape or form . Thank you for your attention. Salu and good evening.
NATURE OF SOIL IN RELATION TO COSMIC RADIATION AND CAUSATION OF CANCER The relation between the geological nature of the soil and the cancer density having been established by observations and statistics given in the preceding section, it remains to show by what particular mechanism a variation in the nature of the soil may bring about contributory factors in the causation of cancer. I have already indicated, in a general manner, with regard to cellular oscillation, that cancer occurs as a reaction of the organism to a modification of its oscillatory equilibrium through the influence of cosmic radiations. Furthermore, the terrestrial field of cosmic waves is constantly affected by variations caused by interference phenomena due to various astral radiations, in consequence of the rotation of the earth either on its own axis (diurnal effect) or round the sun (annual effect) while the phases of the moon also affect the cosmic field. Thus it is justifiable to establish a connection between cancer and variations in the field of cosmic waves due to absorption by the soil. We have seen that the oscillatory equilibrium of the cell is modified and sometimes broken up when cosmic radiations vary either in intensity or in frequency. I have shown, however, that it was possible to re-establish this oscillatory equilibrium by reinforcing or diminishing, more accurately by “filtering” cosmic radiations by means of appropriate contrivances. Evidence of this was given by my first experiments on geraniums affected by cancer and successfully treated. With regard to the absorption of cosmic waves by the soil and the resulting effects of these waves on the field, we have accurate data based on the labours of radio-electricians and astrophysicists who, like Millikan, have studied the problem of penetration. In this connection, it is important to consider not only ultra-penetrating waves, but also the whole range of cosmic waves, from the longest to the shortest. It has been questioned whether cosmic waves, in view of their great penetrability, have any effect whatever on the human organism. It should be borne in mind, however, that cosmic waves have such a universal field of action that it seems obvious, even a priori, that it is not necessary to stop the motion of a wave completely in order to detect its effects. At this rate, the detection of wireless waves would be possible only provided immense metallic walls of great thickness were available in order to capture the waves in toto. But all that is required to attain this end is a simple wire stretched out in the open space, which retains from the passage of the waves an inappreciable and yet sufficient amount of energy. Similarly, the living organism has no need to be like a mass of lead in 10 meters thickness in order to be sensitive to the induction of cosmic waves, to which it will respond most readily as the waves are of shortest length and the living cells of smallest dimensions. It is also clear that owing to the excessively high frequency of these cosmic waves, the cells must be subjected to a formidable electromagnetic induction. Since we are able to detect, as Millikan has shown, cosmic waves at a depth of more than 50 meters, it is evidently not the total absorption that is of primary importance for, from a practical point of view, this is insignificant and must always depend on the sensitiveness of the apparatus employed. It is almost beyond doubt that certain cosmic waves exist which are sufficiently penetrating to traverse the whole earth, an hypothesis which seems to be essential to explain the phenomena of celestial mechanics. What is of great importance, however, in investigating the influence of a certain phenomenon on the conditions of life, is to pay special attention to variations of the cosmic field at the earth’s surface, which involves absorption by sedimentary layers and the resulting secondary radiation, as well as the interference field. This secondary radiation is no more negligible in the case of cosmic radiation than in that of radiological and ionization tubes, which give off cathode rays and X-rays. In cities, the influence of building materials such as stone, 52
bricks, masonry, tar, asphalt, paving-stones, need not be considered for these eminently dielectric materials do not impede the propagation of waves. We know that waves penetrate into the soil all the better as the insulating properties of the soil are more marked, which is in accordance with our knowledge of the propagation of waves. With a wavelength of 16,000 meters penetration is effected to a depth of 80 meters in an insulating soil (sand, limestone, etc.), whereas penetration reaches only a depth of 2 meters in seawater which is a very good conductor; and a few dozen meters in plastic clay and various ores, which are also very good conductors. The depth to which the wave penetrates into the soil is inversely proportional to the square root of the product of its vibration and the conductivity of the soil. Variations of penetration are thus much more marked in the case of short waves than long waves. The conducting soils act almost like metallic screens and absorb waves to a maximum degree. On the other hand the dielectric (insulating) soils facilitate the penetration of waves to a great depth. Thus it follows that these soils, permeable to waves, such as sand, sandstone and gravel, which absorb radiation to a great depth, do not show any appreciable reaction on the cosmic field at the earth’s surface, as is the case whenever a wave penetrates a medium that is practically homogeneous and unlimited. But when the radiation is only superficially absorbed as in the case of conducting soils impermeable to waves such as clay, marl, carboniferous beds and iron ores, this rapid absorption gives rise, at the surface of the conducting stratum, to intense currents which react on the superficial cosmic field. It is possible that this absorption may give rise to refraction as is the rule in physics generally when the constants of the medium of propagation vary, for example, when luminous rays pass from air to water. Or else it may be that we are confronted with a more complex phenomenon in which absorption of cosmic radiation by the soil is followed by a secondary radiation or re-radiation. Be that as it may, it cannot be doubted that the secondary radiation, reflected, refracted or diffused by the conducting layer, interferes with the incident radiation, which results in a field of complex radiation different from the initial field (see Figure 19). On the other hand, in insulating soils cosmic radiation is not affected by the absence of secondary fields (see Figure 20, see next 2 pages). As the development of cancer is supposed to be connected with oscillatory disequilibrium caused by variations in the field of cosmic radiation, it follows that the incidence of cancer is low on insulating soils and high on conducting soils which modify the field. The question of the influence of the soil on the incidence of cancer may thus be reduced to determining its degree of conductivity. We have seen that a low incidence is found on the sand of Fountainebleau and on the sand of Beauchamp, which consist of pure silicates, and as such, are highly insulating; a low incidence is also observed on the sandstone of Beauchamp and on the sand of the Brussels basin, the gravel of Geneva and the friable sandstone of Berne; the slate, gneiss and granite of Nantes; the gypsum of the north-east of Paris. fig. 19 fig. 20 A medium of high incidence of cancer is found on soils which are fairly good conductors, such as recent alluvial deposits containing muddy beds of conducting soil, and especially plastic clay, by virtue of its chemical composition, including water and mineral substances. The degree of cancer incidence increases on such soils as gypsum, marl (Upper Oligocene of the Paris basin) and Jurassic marl, impermeable clay, ferruginous limestone, ferruginous chalk. The incidence is highest on the soils containing ores and collieries, as at Saint-Etienne, Metz and Nancy. I have indicated the mechanism of absorption of waves through the different layers of a soil (see Figure 21, see next page). Cosmic radiations penetrate fairly easily through the superficial layer A formed by alluvial deposits; then they reach the insulating layer B, made up of sand and sandstone; radiations are slightly absorbed by layers C and D, consisting of limestone and marl, and completely asorbed by the sediments or highly conducting layers, E and G. 53
THE ROLE OF WATER IN RELATION TO CANCER From an electrical point of view, pure water, i.e. H2O containing nothing but hydrogen and oxygen, is a very good insulator, and the same applies to soft water found in sandy soils. On the other hand, waters containing salts, such as sea-water and mineral waters, act more or less as conductors, and at times they may prove to be very good conductors. It is the ‘polymorphism’ of water which may account for the fact that certain waters seem to be associated with the incidence of cancer while others have apparently no influence at all. Many districts and cities built on the banks of rivers do not necessarily have a high incidence of cancer. In Paris, near the Seine, both a high and a low incidence of cancer have been observed, which seems to prove the absence of correlation. A city, such as Antwerp, with a low incidence of cancer, is built on the banks of a great river, near a vast estuary, while Geneva, which also has a low cancer incidence, is built in close proximity to a large lake on an alluvial bed. But, on the other hand, cities like Nancy, Saint-Etienne and Strassburg, which are built on the banks of small rivers, have a high incidence of cancer. Fig 21 These observations seem to show that water does not play a part in the incidence of cancer except when its electric constants and the form of its volume (water-beds, etc.) are of such a nature as to affect the field of cosmic radiation which may break up the equilibrium of cellular oscillation. In the light of these facts we are in a position to realize why many reputable writers have often drawn attention to the existence of “cancer houses”, “cancer street”, “cancer villages”, and “cancer districts”. [Orthodox medical writers usually dismiss the question of “cancer houses” as being unworthy of serious attention but recent statistics in Budapest have shown that there actually are so-called “cancer streets” and “cancer houses” where the number of cancer cases is strikingly large (Foreign Letters—Journal of American Medical Association, July 13th, 1935 (Translator’s notation.)] We have indicated the preponderant part played by the nature of the soil in the localization of cancer. It may easily be shown that the soil of such localities contains at a variable depth certain layers acting as particularly good conductors: plastic clay, ferrunginous and arsenical ores, carboniferous and other layers. An eminent cancer research worker, Dr. Hartmann, has drawn attention to the fact that a medical observer has been impressed by the high incidence of cancer in the Ognon Valley. Now this river flows in a bed of Jurassic formation where conducting plastic clay abounds. In the matter of the specific influence of water on the incidence of cancer, I have suggested the following explanation based on the laws of electricity. Water, which is neutral in a state of purity, takes on the conducting properties of substances with which it comes into contact, even as, from a chemical point of view, aqueous solutions show the properties, either acid or alkaline, of dissolved substances. Again, mineral waters contain in solution mineral substances such as sulphur, carbonates and bicarbonates, iron and arsenical salts, etc., which are derived from various geological formations. Such waters possess, at their exit from the soil, the same chemical and electrical constants as the soil from which they emerge. If further evidence is required it may suffice to point out that oscillations characteristic of mineral waters are shown by the radio-activity of these waters in the immediate neighborhood of the springs. Radio-activity results from the oscillatory disequilibrium of certain mineral substances which, at their exit from the soil, do not oscillate in harmony with cosmic waves. From the earliest times physicians have observed that the efficacy of mineral waters was particularly noticeable near the springs owing to the harmony which is then attained between the cellular oscillation of the individual, the radio-activity of the spring and cosmic radiation. Moreover, my views on the point have been confirmed by many observations. (F. L. Hoffman, The Mortality from Cancer Throughout the World. Newark, N.J., 1915.) Hoffman observed that while the cancer mortality reached an average of 0.85 per 1,000 and even 1.199 at Boston in 1915, the corresponding figure for Memphis was only 0.467.
In his monograph on “Cancer and Water” (J. W. Shannon, “Cancer and Water: a Study of the Nature, Causation and Prevention of Cancer”. San Diego, Calif., 1917) Dr. Shannon has shown that the city of Memphis (U.S.A.) is supplied with water from artesian wells situated in the soil of the city itself. Dr. Shannon attributes the low incidence of cancer in Memphis to the water of these artesian wells which, according to him, is free from protozoal organisms. But no one has yet succeeded in proving that cancer is caused by the presence of protozoa in water. [H: I remind you: GET RID OF THOSE PROTOZOABASED PARASITES!!!] In the light of our theory, the water of these artesian wells is a mineral water possessing the same characteristics as the soil on which the inhabitants of Memphis live. As they use this water for both external and internal purposes, these people are thus automatically placed under such conditions that their cells have the same electrical and chemical constants as the soil of their habitat, and consequently they may be said to be “in resonance” with the local field of cosmic radiation. [E.Y. Editor’s note: Those of you readers who are familiar with the health recommendations of the famous clairvoyant Edgar Cayce, will recognize Cayce’s adage to always try to eat locally-grown foods and drink local water for best assimilation due to the vibes being the same as the body’s.] In France, similar observations appear to corroborate these facts. At Luxeuil, Dr. Thomas observed an almost total absence of cancer. It seems that, owing to the scarcity of potable water, the inhabitants of this locality drink only the mineral water of the Spa establishment, obtained from the depths of the local soil. Recently the same observation concerning the relative absence of cancer was made at Chatel-Guyon. A commission of French and foreign cancerologists paid a visit to this famous resort, known for its water, in order to investigate the causes of the reported low incidence of cancer. Now it is known that the water supply of this town does not come from a distant source, but is derived from a local site, Mont Chaluset. The explanation suggested for the phenomenon observed at Memphis and Luxeuil is also valid for ChatelGuyon. Furthermore, we may remark that the water supply of Geneva is drawn from the depths of the Lake of Geneva and therefore possesses the same electrical constants as the lake and the soil themselves. The cancer density in Geneva is said to be distinctly low (0.50 per 1,000) which would seem to confirm our original explanation. In this connection another significant observation was made by Dr. Simeray (Session of the [email protected]
de [email protected]
, March 15th, 1927.), who reported that the population of an entire village was free from cancer as long as they made exclusive use of water drawn from wells sunk for this purpose. But when the local authorities decided to obtain their water supply from a source outside the locality and to give up the use of the wells, a series of cases of cancer occurred in the village. In this case the appearance of cancer seemed to coincide with the utilization of a distant water supply which did not possess the same electrical constants as the soil of the locality and consequently caused in the villagers’ body cells a state of oscillatory disequilibrium in relation to cosmic radiation. I was able to verify Dr. Simeray’s observation personally in the case of two neighboring localities, Thiais and Orly (Seine-et-Oise). Both are situated on the same kind of soil—fresh-water limestone of Brie—which is a fairly good conductor and therefore characteristic of a high cancer density. But the density of cancer for Thiais is 3.36 per 1,000 and only 0.36 for Orly. As this case did not appear to be in accord with my theory on the subject, I decided to investigate the conditions myself with the assistance of the local authorities. I found that at Thiais the water supply came from the Seine, drawn in Alfortville, whereas at Orly, the inhabitants drew their water from their own wells situated in the center of the locality. Hatonn: There is hardly a place left, certainly in the United States and populated areas of any “State”, that has its assured water supply from the immediate area. In some instances this is certainly good as seen by the prior writing. However, it is noted that with the damming of rivers and the “shipping” of water to municipalities you CANNOT KNOW THE SOURCE OF YOUR WATER. It has gotten ever so much more difficult in these past recent years where droughts and runoff from storms are mixed and utilized. You are now getting everything into a mixing pot with no real way to insure cleaning of the supply. There are no city water supplies devoid of parasitic infestation—NONE. Parasites are the carriers of choice for many 55
microbes. You are at jeopardy—even if you “think” you intake only specially treated water. [Editor’s note: Go back and read the superb article written by Commanders Hatonn and Soltec from 1992, last presented in the 7/18/95 CONTACT, called “Water, Water Everywhere But None That’s Fit to Drink!”.] Diagnosis of disease has become all but impossible as the diseases are spread through your network of water supplies. In this very town of small Tehachapi, a lot of the water is brought into the valley from elsewhere via viaduct. Moreover, even if irrigation water from the viaduct is exchanged for local water— you have the irrigation water moving through the soil and into the local wells—so you end up then with basically the same mineralization combination. What does this mean to YOU? It means that you have to take responsibility for SELF and attend yourself and your children. To do that you have to “treat” the problem individually from WITHIN. You don’t have to have updated accounts of the things in the water supply—just assume that they are “there” because they ARE. Salu! CHAPTER X THERAPEUTICS OF CELLULAR OSCILLATION In the preceding chapters I have shown that a living organism, whether animal or plant, is comparable to a system of high frequency oscillating circuits consisting of cells which are themselves elementary oscillators. I have indicated the nature of radiation in living beings and how different rays influence them. I have particularly stressed the role of cosmic radiation and how it is influenced by various physical factors such as the conductivity of the soil and the effect of astral radiation, resulting in interference phenomena. All the investigations I have undertaken appear to confirm the fact that diseases are the outcome of oscillatory disequilibrium resulting from (1) certain modifications in the field of cosmic waves in consequence of interference through a secondary field at the surface of the soil, (2) from an astral radiation (solar, lunar) or else, which comes to the same thing, (3) from modifications of the electrical constants of the living cell. [H: Remember that microbes modify the electrical constants of the living cell!] Thus I have been led to evolve a new therapy whose object was to re-establish the cellular oscillatory equilibrium that had been disturbed by disease. According to the nature of the case, it may be advisable to act directly on the diseased organism by means of biomagnomobile substances or substances capable of restoring to the cell its appropriate electromagnetic constants (capacity, self-inductance and resistance of nuclear oscillating circuit); or it may be more expedient to act indirectly by modifying the field of cosmic waves around the patient by means of some suitable radio-electrical apparatus. The object of this method is to regulate the electromagnetic field within organic tissues, chiefly by reconstituting the positive and negative fragments of every cellular nucleus, a process involving the utilization of biomagnomobile substances. And lastly, we know that the magnetic field is due to a rotary motion of electrons which is a particular kind of oscillation. [E.Y. Editor’s note: Those of you more technical readers may well take issue with this simplistic “explantion” of a magnetic field. It is true to a point, but hardly the entire story.] My researches on cancer have led me to the conclusion that this terrible disease is least prevalent in localities where living organisms are in harmony, that is to say in oscillatory equilibrium with the soil of their habitat, as I have indicated before. It seems that we have here a universal principle which may prove useful in therapeutics, and it is even more a principle of general hygiene than a therapeutic principle. In my monograph on the “Contribution to the Etiology of Cancer”, I showed that certain favorable conditions were established when the inhabitants made use of water drawn from the depths of the soil upon which they lived. I am convinced that if people could subsist exclusively on fruits and vegetables grown in gardens attached to their houses, and made use of water drawn from wells sunk close by, cancer and most other diseases would become far less prevalent. Do we not often hear of country people reaching an 56
advanced age in spite of deplorable hygienic conditions under which they live? This longevity may be accounted for by the fact that these country people are compelled to make use of their local water supply and to live on their own produce. [E.Y. Editor’s note: Again I’ll jump in here to comment that the gifted psychic Edgar Cayce frequently made the same health suggestion about consuming local water and foodstuffs.] The disadvantage of modern water supplies might be overcome in cities by sinking artesian wells, such as those existing in Paris in the Place Lamartine, the Avenue de Breteuil and the Bois de Boulogne. As for the new artesian well of the Rue Blomet, it would be infinitely better if this water were used for household purposes rather than for a swimming pool. When local living conditions are exceptionally bad or variable, it is possible, as I have shown, to reestablish, or rather “tune up” the electric constants of the cell by means of appropriate substances in harmony with the physical and chemical nature of the soil of the habitat. These substances could be administered by hypodermic injection, or preferably, by the oral route. At night time the sleeper might be connected with the soil by means of an appropriate earth connection, and in the daytime, footwear might be used to hold a metallic plate in the sole or heel, thus establishing electrical contact between the foot and the soil. In the majority of cases it seems more rational and more efficacious to resort to electrical methods such as filtration of the field of cosmic waves in the immediate vicinity of the individual. I have also recommended the use of special radio-electrical contrivances such as metallic antennae fixed up in flats or outside houses, earth-connections, metallic grids and, preferably, appropriate oscillating circuits. The filtration of cosmic radiations systematically carried out by these oscillating circuits is, in point of fact, accomplished naturally by radiations of longer wavelength, such as luminous rays, ultra-violet rays, Xrays and radium emanations. This accounts for cases successfully treated by heliotherapy, actinotherapy, radio-therapy and radio-active substances. My experimental work has confirmed the soundness of the foregoing principles. Let us recall to mind the experiments with geraniums inoculated with Bacterium tumefaciens and treated by the radiations of my Radio-cellulo-oscillator, with the result that the plants were cured after a few applications. Since then I have shown that disease occurs owing to oscillatory disequilibrium brought about by excess of cosmic waves. The ultra-short waves emitted by the Radio-cellulo-oscillator reconstitute, by interference, the field of cosmic radiation which thus acquires an appropriate value, the same result being achieved by the intervention of luminous rays, ultra-violet and radio-active rays. In a preceding chapter I indicated, in regard to the nature of radiant energy, how I obtained the same curative result with geraniums by eliminating the Radio-cellulo-oscillator and substituting for it the simple device of a copper spiral encircling the plants. This spiral is the simplest and most general form of an oscillating circuit which I advocate for the filtration of cosmic waves in connection with the treatment of various diseases, including cancer. [H: Attention: Field planners for simple frequency introduction to growing plants. Get a good copper conducting wire or something similar and encircle the field—or in sections if you have to because of “size”. The frequency waves will criss-cross the encircled sections at the speed of cosmic ray waves. You do NOT need elaborate devices.] The results I obtained in treating these plants by means of an oscillating circuit were far beyond my expectations. Professor d’Arsonval, who presented my communication to the Académie des Sciences, drew attention to the fact that at the beginning of January, 1925, I had set up an oscillating circuit consisting of a copper spiral suspended in the air and kept in position by means of an ebonite rod introduced into one of the flower pots containing the geraniums inoculated with cancer on December 4th, 1924. On January 30th, 1925, the tumor was developing normally, but the plant continued to grow without showing signs of decay, whereas all the control plants had perished as a result of the tumor they bore. At the end of February, 1925, the treated plant was cured and the necrosed tumor had fallen off. On March 23rd, 1928, the same plant, still encircled by its oscillating circuit, was photographed (Plate VII). Comparison of the photographs of January 30th, 1925, and March 23rd, 1928, reduced to the same scale, gives an idea of the extraordinary development of the plant which, in three years, reached a height of 57
1.40 meters, i.e., about 4-1/2 feet. This geranium is still flourishing, even in winter, and appears to be in excellent condition. It should be borne in mind that tumors due to Bacterium tumefaciens usually cause cachexia and death, even after surgical removal. (See Plate VII next page.) Since this first experiment, many investigations in the same field, in conformity with my methods, have been carried out in France, Italy and America. I, myself, have extended my researches on plants to animals and human beings, and it has given me great encouragement to know that my methods have been successfully applied by eminent workers in laboratories and clinics. Among the numerous reports published concerning these experiments, special mention must be made of the report presented at the Congress of Radiology in Florence (May, 1928) by an eminent authority on cancer, Professor Sordello Attilj, of the Hospital San Spirito in Sassia, Rome. Only a brief summary of this report can be given here. Professor Attilj made extensive use of my open oscillating circuits which I recommended in the form of collars, bracelets, belts, etc. The most important observations of Professor Attilj, appearing in the report in question, concern six patients—five of whom were suffering from cancer and the sixth from polysarcia (excessive corpulence). All these cases of cancer exhibited marked individual differences. plate VII 1. Patient, aged 78, suffering from epithelioma (ulcerated) on the floor of the mouth with sub-maxillary metastases. 2. Patient, aged 25, suffering from recurrent sarcoma on left hand. 3. Patient, aged 28, suffering from recurrent sarcoma of right breast. 4. Patient, aged 60, suffering from epithelioma (ulcerated) of genital organs. 5. Patient, aged 40, suffering from severe post-operative pains with small metastases in scar on breast. It will be noticed at the outset that three cases of cancer are complicated by recurrence or secondary manifestations (metastases) which constitute aggravating conditions. Nevertheless, a few weeks after application of oscillating circuits, Professor Attilj noted a diminution of pain, a progressive resorption of lesions and a disappearance of induration of tumors. In the majority of cases the painful fomication (“pins and needles”) accompanying the development of tumors ceases when the oscillating circuit was applied. The sixth case concerning the patient suffering from polysarcia is perhaps the most interesting of the series. Weighing 120 kilograms, the patient was suffering from lancinating pains in the lumbar region and moved with such difficulty that it took her three to four minutes to rise from the sitting position. Three days after the application of the oscillating circuit (a belt in this case) the pains disappeared, the patient regained her appetite, so much so that at the end of three months’ treatment she was able to move with ease and resume her normal activities. Professor Attilj summed up as follows: “The small number of cases treated, which represents only the beginning of a method of treatment awaiting further development, shows that the use of Lakhovsky’s oscillating circuit is really effective. When we bear in mind the tragic fate of cancer patients doomed to die, often in great pain, while at the same time their organs are gravely affected by the disease, it must be admitted that anything that can relieve such distressing symptoms is a great blessing to the suffering patients.” Professor Attilj admits the efficacy of open oscillating circuits for re-establishing cellular oscillating equilibrium, not only in cancerous patients, but also in patients suffering from cardio-vascular and nutritional affections. For some time past I have made similar observations myself and have collected a great number of reports from practitioners who have cast aside their preconceived ideas in the interest of science, and have experimented with my methods of treatment. Generally speaking, the following conditions have been most often dealt with by practitioners: Insomnia, due to overwork or following on illness, is successfully treated. Pain associated with various affections is generally reduced, sometimes eliminated, even in cases of cancer. 58
Patients have noticed a sensation of warmth due to activation of the circulation. Blood analysis shows an increase of red corpuscles. Anemia and cold extremities are thus amenable to our methods of treatment. The gastro-intestinal functions are stimulated and gastric acidity is reduced while intestinal atony and pains accompanying digestion also show favorable response. In deaf patients, an improvement has been observed. Other signs of improvement include better appetite, increase in weight and an appearance of rejuvenation, often distinctly marked. Lastly, attention must be drawn to the interesting observations made by a distinguished French professor who experimented with my methods in one of the great Paris hospitals. The patients under treatment were subjected to strict examination. Once a week the weight was noted, the blood analyzed and blood pressure recorded. While these experiments were in progress the professor noticed that during a period of about eight days the improvement previously observed came to a definite standstill in all the patients. He deduced from this general phenomenon that an external cause was operating. In looking at the calendar he observed that this abnormal period coincided with the full phase of the moon. From the point of view of my theory this phenomenon may be explained as follows. We know that the moon, in common with all sources of radiation, has the power of causing considerable variations in the field of cosmic waves, a subject dealt with in my work L’Universion. Moreover, the effect of the oscillating circuit is to absorb any excess of cosmic waves which are responsible for the oscillatory disequilibrium of the cells. As the moon modifies the field of these waves, this interference has repercussions on the absorption of the oscillating circuit whose action is diminished. Thus we observe that the effect of an oscillating circuit worn by a patient is in close relationship with the field of cosmic waves. In cases in which this effect is inadequate, the desired result may be obtained by making use of several circuits (collars, bracelets, belts). As a general rule, I have observed that in all the patients wearing oscillating circuits and living on highly conducting soils, that is to say naturally carcinogenic (cancer-producing) such as Grenelle, Javel, Auteuil, Neuilly, the action of the circuit is immediate and rapid, whereas in patients living on insulating soils, such as Dauphine, the Champs-Elysées, Gaillon, Monceau, this action is much slower, and its effects are not manifested until a certain time has elapsed. Thus the action of an oscillating circuit, being closely connected with the intensity of the field of cosmic waves, gives rise to the paradoxical conclusion that, thanks to the use of this circuit, the worst soils, from the point of view of health, finally turn out to be the best. The oscillating circuit (collar, belt, etc.) acts by regulating the incidence of cosmic waves, thus re-establishing, automatically and naturally, the oscillatory equilibrium. We are justified in concluding, therefore, that the application of open oscillating circuits succeeds in arresting the development of cancer, even in the most advanced stages, while pain is eliminated and the dreaded disease sometimes conquered. Finally, similar gratifying results have been obtained in the treatment of many other diseases which apparently have no connection with cancer. Thus it may be claimed, a fortiori, that oscillating circuits, in absorbing excess of cosmic waves, may prove to be a means of preventing disease worthy of consideration. I am hopeful that, in future, all diseases afflicting mankind may be prevented and successfully treated. Hatonn: I realize that by offering this last information that a whole bunch of you are going to go out and buy all sorts of baubles and things to hang upon your necks. I would save the money if I were you and pack your emergency kits with worthy goods. Are there good items out there which could resonate and offer help? Of course—BUT YOU DON’T HAVE ABILITY TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE! If you wish to wear a bracelet or a chain about your neck—wonderful. Get as much GOLD into it as is possible. I don’t have a lot of patience with “copper” but fine if you want a “typical conductor”. Copper will definitely do one thing for you—turn you green as the copper oxidizes. Perhaps little Martians are green because they wear copper suits? STOP THE NONSENSE. 59
We KNOW of a few who go to the Global Sciences meetings and sell all sorts of fun things, such as “Tesla Watches”, etc. They take a standard CHEAPEST POSSIBLE watch and add the Tesla signature and there you have it. When questioned in private it was said by the promoter: “What difference does it make, it’s all in the mind anyway!” Well it does make a difference and the biggest difference of all is WHAT YOU CONTINUE TO ALLOW TO BE POURED INTO YOUR MIND. This author whom we honor was WORKING AND EXPERIMENTING—YOU WANT THE REAL THING ALL FINISHED FOR YOU! So be it. Drape yourself with as many trinkets as you need to become as the proverbial Christmas tree—JUST DON’T GO SWIMMING—LEST YOU SINK AND DROWN. With this caution in mind, let us close this chapter. Good morning.
CHAPTER XI ORIGIN OF LIFE [Condensation of Water Vapor and Mineral Elements; Influence of Cosmic Radiations on Orientation of Cellular Elements; Constitution of Electric Oscillating Circuit of the Cell; Characteristic Elements of Living Species; Problem of Heredity; Infinitesimal Value of Radiant Energy; Induction in Fixed and Oscillating Fields; Induction in Electromagnetic Fields within the Cell.] CONDENSATION OF WATER VAPOR AND MINERAL ELEMENTS In the geological epochs, when life had not yet appeared on the surface of the Earth, our world which had stored, at a certain time, the condensation of all the water vapor in the atmosphere, was partially or totally covered with oceans. [H: As a matter of fact the planet was known as “Oceanios” before it was recognized as “Earth”. Remember “Earth” is simply a description, not a name. The name was Shan and was first “Shan Oceanios”. It started out as a very “hot” place as early friction and volcanic action heated EVERYTHING—this caused vaporization distillation of moisture and a separation of heavier mineralization from the actual water. This is what is “meant” in reference to the “condensation” above.] The elements and various chemical compounds, dissociated under the action of heat, then subsequently condensed, were found scattered everywhere. They are still found, almost without exception, in sea-water, whose analysis reveals a great complexity: chlorides, bromides, iodides, sulfates and most salts of the principal metals: sodium, potassium, magnesium and many others. It is entirely owing to humidity in the neighborhood of the sea or in the sea itself, that life emerged and that the first protozoan appeared. As biological science has established the fact that the first phase of life is the cell, I propose showing how the primordial cell was formed by referring to my theory of cellular oscillation. It is important to bear in mind that salts, simple bodies and other chemical compounds which existed in a state of great dilution in the midst of vast masses of water and saturated vapors, were, in consequence, strongly dissociated and ionized, in the form of atoms and molecules, more or less electrified. Thus every droplet of water formed a tiny microcosm containing, in a state of extreme dilution, a great variety of chemical elements. Hence it must never be lost sight of that humidity is essential to life; it was the first condition for the appearance of life on Earth. INFLUENCE OF COSMIC RADIATION ON ORIENTATION OF CELLULAR ELEMENT The causes determining the generation of cosmic waves were already existing when the Earth appeared in the universe. The radiations which generate cosmic waves, whether from the sun or from other stars, have remained unaltered. But our Earth, at that time, as even now, must have been charged with negative electricity. The process of the appearance of life may conceivably have been as follows: under the action of electromagnetic radiations of cosmic origin, certain molecules of chemical compounds and certain atoms of simple elements, contained in globules of water, were orientated along lines of force of an electric field generated by some astral body, charged “positively” while the Earth was charged “negatively”. 60
Let us note that owing to the multiplicity of astral electric fields, orientation of molecules could have been effected just as well along lines of force coming from the sun as from the moon, Mars, Jupiter, or any other planet or astral body. Again, these molecules of conducting substances, containing iron, potassium, iodine, chlorine, and various chemical combinations, were automatically grouped under the influence of chemical affinity or electrostatic forces. They began to form along a certain line of force a small agglomeration of electrified molecules to which other molecules were attracted. These unions, however, occurred according to determined direction, that of the line of electromagnetic force which, arising out of celestial space, reached the Earth, negatively charged, as modern science has shown. These groups of conducting molecules were thus orientated and joined together in the form of an extremely short curved rod. Around this “bait”, a certain number of molecules from insulating substances came to be fixed, possibly owing to the force of gravity, and formed, as it were, a sheath enveloping the original agglomeration of conducting molecules. CONSTITUTION OF ELECTRIC OSCILLATING CIRCUIT OF THE CELL Owing to the rotation of the Earth, the orientation of agglomerated molecules was subjected to deviation and as a result of its rotatory motion the Earth thus played a part, at the end of twenty-four hours, or even after a few days, in the formation of a filament no longer rectilinear but curved, and at times, having the shape of a tangled cluster (see Figure 22). The new parts of this filament were consequently formed along the line of magnetic force, invariable in direction, while the parts already formed were swept along by the motion of the Earth. As this conducting filament was being formed, the insulating sheath or membrane enveloping it continued to grow and to consolidate itself at the same time as the filament. This kind of phenomenon took place in a microscopic globule of vapor measuring 3 microns in diameter. It is this insulating membrane which, once the circuit was completed, finally prevented the extremities of the filament from being joined together, and even from coming into contact with the internal conducting medium. The filament, that is to say, the nucleus of the cell, was thus finally formed. (See Figure 22 next page.) The information of this cellular circuit was due, in short, to the presence of lines of force arising out of celestial space, and its configuration to the rotation of the Earth. The circuit thus formed was endowed, by construction, with capacity and self-inductance. It then immediately began to vibrate under the influence of electromagnetic radiations and penetrating rays, among which a certain frequency equivalent to the frequency of the circuit was found with which it could vibrate in resonance. This microscopic globule of mineralized water, already showing signs of organization, was then completed chemically by its other organic structures, such as protoplasm, cytoplasm, micellae, vacuoles, etc., always by aggregation of molecules. And as it was vibrating and radiating, this globule was living and the cell was born. Figure 22 CHARACTERISTIC ELEMENTS OF LIVING SPECIES As a result of this formation, every cell, or at least every species characterized by cells possessing nucleus and protoplasm, began to oscillate with a frequency and wavelength determined by the dimensions of its filament. Thus by virtue of the form and dimensions of the filament, every cell, like every microbe, possesses its own wavelength which is characteristic of its species. But all these cellular wavelengths, although widely different, are of the same order of magnitude and approximate to one another within a narrow zone of the whole range of vibrations. According to my theory, this definition of cellular species involves one of the following consequences. If, by any process, we succeed in modifying the duration of the formation of a cell, which implies modifying the constitution of its filament or of its conductive capacity, either by means of chemical elements or by electromagnetic methods, we modify at the same time its frequency of vibration, and consequently, the species of cell as well as its particular characteristics. 61
This sequence of events probably occurs in cases of cancer, diseases of old age, etc. Transmutation of cells would thus be accomplished. Experimental evidence gives support to this view. Furthermore, a similar state of affairs may occur in the action of certain medicaments of mineral, vegetable or animal origin, which are intended to cure certain conditions by reinforcing the conductivity of the nucleus, or modifying its chemical nature, the nucleus being of primary importance in the process of oscillatory disequilibrium. CELL DIFFERENTIATION AND HEREDITY The most diverse hypotheses have been enunciated on the constitution of protoplasm. According to Naegeli, matter is composed of units to which he gave the name of micellae. Other scientists, such as Darwin, Haeckel, Spencer, Hertwig, de Vries, Wiesner, have been led to postulate the existence of a physiological unit of a higher grade than micellae, i.e., the idioblast. The sum of idioblasts constitute the idioplasm. Hertwig states that the hereditary substance is not located in the protoplasm but rather in the nucleus and has adopted Pffuger’s concept of the isotropy of the ovum, that is to say, that the ovum is homogeneous and none of its parts corresponds beforehand to any part of the future animal. Weismann propounded the theory of “ancestral plasma”. (Weismann was the author of the germ-plasm theory of heredity which denied the transmission of acquired characteristics.) The problem of the specific differentiation of cellular elements has given rise to a great number of hypothetical solutions including the theories of his, Hansemann, Hertwig, Naegeli, de Vries, etc. According to my views, the hereditary substance is located neither in the protoplasm, idioplasm nor in the micellae, but actually in the nucleus; and the specific differentiation of the nucleus is due to its power of vibrating in accordance with a wavelength determined by the diameter of the circuits which constitute it and the value of the nuclear electrical capacity. In procreation, the male or female cell which proves to be dominant is that whose wavelength approximates most closely to the normal standard typical of its sex. This may account for hereditary phenomena brought about by nuclei whose diameter does not vary for generations, their wavelengths and the chemical composition of protoplasm that form capacity remaining consequently unchanged. This may also account for the recurrence of qualities, defects, resemblances, etc., through many generations, in short, what is known as atavism. INFINITESIMAL VALUE OF OSCILLATING CELLULAR ENERGY In the course of this work I have already raised the question: “Whence comes the energy of cellular radiation?” It is this question which I propose answering now by way of concluding the formal statement of my theory. Owing to the microscopic dimensions of cells and their filaments, dimensions measuring only fractions of microns, it follows that the oscillation of such a circuit requires but an extremely small amount of energy. It is difficult to imagine the infinitesimal quantity of this energy, but the imponderable amount of force brought into play in the course of these oscillations does not preclude the far-reaching effects of these ultrashort waves, owing to the considerable amount of induction attainable with such high frequencies. Let us call to mind, for instance, the vast range available to wireless stations making use of so-called short waves which are actually long waves in comparison with cellular oscillations. For such broadcasting a power of a few dozen watts is sufficient, and it has even been possible to reduce this to 1 watt or less while operating in a radius of more than 2,000 kilometers. Some physicists have experimented with high frequency waves of the order of a hundredth, and even a thousandth, watt. In the experiments of Nichols and Tear, for the generation of electromagnetic waves of 300 microns, the energy of these radiations was so attenuated that their measurement necessitated a special optical method. Thus a certain imaginative effort is required to appreciate the greatly attenuated energy that makes the circuits of our cells oscillate, whose structure is perceptible only under the microscope at a magnification of 300 to 500. We shall not attempt to calculate this energy; suffice it to say that it is infinitely small for each circuit. We have seen that the wavelength of cosmic waves is extremely small and that atmospheric radiant energy is sufficient to cause cells to oscillate. When a Hertzian wave emitted in Australia, for instance, with a power 62
of a few dozen watts, is transmitted in all directions and ultimately received in Europe by a small aerial, the high frequency energy picked up by the receiving aerial is infinitesimal. It is all the more so as the energy decreases theoretically in inverse ratio to the square of the distance, and practically with far greater rapidity. INDUCTION IN FIXED OSCILLATING FIELDS How is it possible that such a receiving aerial, picking up so little energy, can yet oscillate in its turn sufficiently to activate another far distant aerial? This is largely due to the very high frequency of these short waves, whose attenuated length approximates more closely to the wavelength of cosmic radiations than to that of long waves. We know that the process of wave reception is as follows: the receiving aerial is situated in a variable electromagnetic field created by the waves which are propagated from the transmitter. It is this variable high frequency electromagnetic field which, by induction, generates oscillating electric currents of the same frequency in that aerial. It is also owing to this same mechanism that our cells oscillate, and I shall show whence the necessary energy is derived. At this stage it may be useful to draw attention to two essential conditions relative to induction phenomena bearing on sustained oscillations. In order to bring about generation of oscillating electric currents in a circuit, it is necessary that the following conditions would be fulfilled. 1. Existence of an electric circuit capable of oscillating (circuit possessing self-inductance and capacity). 2. Existence of an external cause capable of making the circuit oscillate. We have seen that the first condition was fulfilled in every cell. With regard to the second condition, the phenomenon of oscillation may be due to a great variety of causes. In any case it is sufficient that the selfinductance of the circuit in question should be influenced by an oscillating magnetic field or that the capacity should be situated in an oscillating electric field. Each of these two induction phenomena, electric or magnetic, may itself be brought about in two ways. In the first case, the self-inductance of the circuit is fixed and the external magnetic field (or the electric field in the case of a condenser) is variable. This variation of the field then produces, by induction in the circuit, currents whose frequency corresponds exactly with its own wavelength. The effect may actually be determined by a multitude of fields, each having its own frequency, induction being produced only by the field whose wavelength coincides with that of the circuit. In the second case, self-inductance is mobile, and is displaced with a very great speed in the magnetic field. The action of an electric field on the capacity of the circuit would take place on similar lines. The electric or magnetic field in question may be variable in regard to time and show exactly the same frequency as the induced currents in the circuit. Or else this field may be variable in regard to space, for instance, an undulating field having a fixed value on which discontinuities or interruptions are superimposed. Or yet the field may be fixed though the oscillating circuit itself is mobile. It is upon these phenomena that the construction of industrial alternators is based; in certain cases the revolving part is constituted by the continuous current induction circuit whose magnetic poles acquire a high velocity in the presence of the fixed coils of the induced circuit. The induced alternating currents then arise from the circuits of the fixed part which, by the rotation of the revolving inductor, are subjected to variable magnetic fields. The same principles apply to a frame aerial; the spirals of the frame act by induction, like the secondary circuit of a transformer, whose primary circuit corresponds to a transmitting aerial. Induction is produced by the variable magnetic field propagated by the waves issued from the transmitter. It is owing to the same process that the radiant energy of cosmic waves activates our own cells. INDUCTION OF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS WITHIN A CELL We have seen that living cells possess oscillating circuits constituted by filaments. Now all these cells are set in motion in space, impelled by the motion of the earth, at a velocity of 27 kilometers per minute at the Equator. The question is in what particular field do these cells revolve? Evidently not in the terrestrial electromagnetic fields, since these fields are swept along at the same time as the cells by the same rotatory motion. The cells revolve in variable electromagnetic fields generated by a source external to the earth, that is to say within the field of atmospheric radiations comprising a complete range of frequencies as 63
typified by cosmic radiations emanating from the sun, the Milky Way and the Immensity of Celestial Space. Finally, the existence of variable electric magnetic fields of multiple frequencies arising out of space shows that all the energy of radiation at the earth’s surface comes, in the last analysis, from electromagnetic induction brought about by the rotation of the earth in space. Let us now consider the relations existing between the chemical composition of the cell and its radiation. We know that living beings, animals and plants, in a word every living cell, contain all the chemical atoms in their great complexity. As I stated before on the subject of cell differentiation and heredity, various names have been given to the elementary units of the cell and protoplasm, such as micellae, idioplasm, mitochondria, etc. From my point of view I prefer to describe them as biomagnomobile units so as to stress their biological origin, their essential mobility and the electromagnetic element which charges them with vital energy. Let us take, for example, the process of electro-plating in which two metallic electrodes are immersed in a conducting liquid. The metallic atoms are swept along by the current; they leave one electrode to be deposited on the other electrode, this being due to elementary electrostatic charges, each atom being directed by electrons moving from one pole to the other. When the current fails the motion of atoms ceases. In the case of living cells the number of these particles constituting a single cell is incalculable. Thus, according to Raphael Dubois, it would take 250 million years, provided it were possible to count at the rate of one million per second, to estimate the sum total of units contained in the egg of a silk-worm. Whatever the number may be, these units are incessantly moving in our organism; thus a cell in the brain may ask a cell in the stomach, for example, to supply it with a few hundred trillions of those biomagnomobile units (derived from phosphorus, chlorine, iron, etc.) which circulate in all parts of our bodies. Molecules are first brought into the blood by foodstuffs or formed within the organism from simple elements. And all these molecules are set in motion, attracted or repulsed, by the play of cellular oscillations, as in the motion of charged electrical particles in the process of electroplating. Moreover, the organism consists only of living biomagnomobile units, in a state of incessant chemical and electromagnetic activity. All functional activities can only be carried out as a result of the harmony and general organization of the cells and of their oscillations originating from cellular nuclei. It is this general harmony which determines the particular position of every molecule. With regard to the necessary energy, this comes from the electrical vibrating of the cells, energized in their turn by cosmic waves. At this stage the question may be asked: “What about toxins?” Toxins are the waste products of cells and of dead microbes. As they are no longer living, and thus constitute inert matter, these waste products neutralize the oscillatory movement of neighboring cells and weaken them or cause their destruction. These inert particles attract living particles; in any case, their proximity modifies the electrical capacity of living cells which can no longer oscillate in accordance with their specific frequency; hence disease or death. In this connection let us consider the action of the microbe on the cell from a biological point of view. First let us point out that the microbe does not attack living cells directly, but only indirectly by induction, as we shall show later. Chemical analysis of microbes and cells shows them to be remarkably similar in composition. It seems, therefore, a priori, that it is difficult, from a chemical point of view, to account for the actions of the microbe. But if we investigate the chemical composition of microbes and cells respectively, the distribution of the different substances enables us to solve the problem of this “war of radiations” which I mentioned in an earlier chapter. We know that the constituents of living cells and microbes may be classified into three categories: nitrogenous substances, ternary substances (Ternary is a term indicating that chemical compounds are made up of three elements or radicals.), and mineral substances. Thus, for instance, analysis of a cell of the fruit-bearing part of AEthalium septicum shows the following proportions: Nitrogenous 30 Ternary substances 41 Mineral substances 29 Total 100 64
According to Henneguy, in nitrogenous substances are found: plastin, vitellin, myosin, peptones, pepsins, lecithin, guanine, xanthin and ammonium carbonate. In ternary substances: paracholesterol, a special resin, a yellow pigment, amylodextrin, a non-reducing sugar, fatty acids and neutral fats. In mineral substances: lime combined with fatty acids and other organic acids, such as lactic acid, acetic acid, formic acid, oxalic acid, phosphoric acid, carbonic acid, sulfuric acid; phosphates of potassium and magnesium, chloride of sodium and iron salts. Generally speaking, all chemical substances present in sea-water are found in the human organism. From the point of view of my theory of cellular oscillation, all the substances enumerated above may be divided into two categories: l. Conducting substances. 2. Insulating substances. As a general rule, insulating substances are found in nitrogenous and ternary compounds and conducting substances in compounds containing mineral salts. Thus, for instance, plastin, paracholesterol, resin and certain fats are insulating, while most minerals, and particularly the salts (sulfates, phosphates, chlorides, of sodium, magnesium, iron, etc.) are more or less conducting. In the light of this classification we shall see how the microbe may, by induction, modify cellular oscillation. Let us recall that oscillation in a circuit depends on its conductivity (electrical resistance) and on its permeability to waves (specific inductive power and capacity). Returning to the cell of AEthalium septicum, we have seen that its chemical composition was as follows: nitrogenous substances 30; ternary substances 41 (most of these being insulating); mineral substances 29 (most of these being conducting). Let us suppose that this cell is attacked by a microbe whose mineral ratio is 40 instead of 29. Its oscillating power and consequently its frequency, are not the same as those of the cell. Thus, by induction, the microbe modifies the oscillation of the cell, which results in its destruction and death. Again, the cell, instead of dividing normally by karyokinesis into daughter cells, divides according to the frequency of the microbe, that is to say into cells typical of the microbe. In the absence of a microbe, if the nucleus of the cell is too powerful a conductor (excess of iron and phosphorus derived from globulins), and if the external agent (excess of cosmic waves) causes a too rapid division of cells, we may find that the healthy cell will be transformed into a neoplastic cell (cancer). The foregoing facts show that in a healthy organism every tissue must contain, in constant proportions, conducting and insulating constituents which I have named biomagnomobile units. The question now arises how the distribution of these units in the organism is effected so as to bring to the membrane of the nucleus the insulating substances, and to the filament the conducting substances. It is essentially due to the energy of its own oscillation that the cell is able to summon for its needs all these insulating and conducting substances which are distributed to the locations where they are required for the maintenance of the life of the cell itself. Similarly, in the electro-plating process the substances and the strength of the current are adjusted so as to obtain the desired effect, according to the nature of the metal employed. Such is the final remark with which I conclude the formulation of my theory. My experiments in the field of radiobiology are now established facts which cannot be accounted for by the classical theories of science, whereas my new theory provides the necessary explanation. In conclusion, my theory may be summarized in the form of this threefold principle: Life is created by radiation, Maintained by radiation, Destroyed by oscillatory disequilibrium. Be that as it may, I believe I have opened up a new field of research which should prove particularly fruitful to biologists. No one can predict what the future has in store for us in this field; in any case, I hope that the ultimate result will benefit suffering humanity. CONCLUSION In concluding the presentation of my theory and of its practical applications, I wish to appeal to physicists, and research workers, to all men of science in general, for in them lies the source of all progress. 65
It is they, in particular, who have achieved the modern marvel of wireless. If anyone predicted, forty years ago, that we should be able to hear speech and music from all parts of the earth, not to mention television, he would have been regarded as a madman. As yet today these inventions are accomplished facts which we accept as being perfectly natural. Such is the power of science that it invariably surpasses the most daring speculations. I appeal to these research workers to devise, as I shall attempt to do myself, a mechanical eye, an objective, in a word an apparatus with which to detect the unknowing radiations discussed in this work. What are we able to perceive with our sense of sight in the immense gamut of radiations? Nothing but a small zone extending from 375 to 700 trillion vibrations per second. And yet what a social upheaval lies in store for us pending the discovery of this apparatus susceptible of detecting the complete range of waves, known and unknown, which escape our control. In speaking of man, Descartes said: “I think, therefore I am.” This somewhat laconic dictum should not blind us to the fact that man, although superior to animals in many respects, notably in the power of thought, is nevertheless inferior to them, for the time being, in regard to the narrow range of vibrations that he is able to detect. Indeed, man can only see and hear with a very restricted range, and he can only transmit his thought by means of speech. On the other hand, certain animals can travel in a straight line towards a far distant goal, invisible to us, thanks to the vibrations they detect and that our senses cannot perceive. One of the ways we have of exploring the external world is by means of our visual sense. The eye is the physiological objective which has been admirably copied and which has revealed to us the infinitely small and infinitely great. Thanks to a very small gamut in the scale of luminous radiations, we are able to discern the most delicate shades of colors. It is actually the wavelength of each of these colors, of each of these notes of this visual harmony, which excites the cells of our brain, and by the play of multitudinous oscillations, makes them vibrate in unison. So, too, the appearance of certain human beings evokes our sympathy, our love or our contempt. May not these diverse feelings be caused by certain variations in the radiations emitted by these persons? This biological eye, admirable creation, has been physically copied and turned into an instrument which captures the luminous rays so as to reproduce, through photographs and films, all the sensations experienced directly by the human eye. Thus for many centuries our unaided vision revealed to us but a small domain of Nature. Man once believed that apart from light and darkness there was nothing to be perceived. In the course of time he became aware of the immensity of the scale of radiations: invisible chemical rays, electromagnetic waves, X-rays, radium emanations and cosmic rays which may still prove to be the most important of all to future researchers. And more particularly, man possessed no sense that could apprehend electric waves, and this realm would have remained forever closed to him if scientists of genius had not brought into being an “electric eye” which revealed a new world to us all, the world of wireless. And now, what significance do we discern in the stream of life and in cellular oscillations, and who will invent that eye, that detector of vital oscillations? When this comes to pass, we shall achieve the mastery of these oscillations. Not only from a biological point of view will these radiations enable us to obtain results of great value to mankind, but also from a social point of view, their practical application may bring about changes of great significance. We shall utilize them for our needs and we shall achieve the transmission of thought and communication with the blind; we shall know what other people think and we shall communicate with one another, and possibly with animals, too, by means of our own radiations. We shall also be able to trace the whereabouts of criminals by the wavelengths of their radiations. And, indeed, we live in the midst of a mystery, for do we not see birds, insects, and animals of all kinds, devoid of the faculty of speech, yet manifesting powers as marvellous as they are inexplicable? May we not postulate the existence of thought transmission among all sentient beings? The instinct of self-preservation in animals is but a verbal expression concealing a reality which is the primary cause of their existence: the whole gamut of radiations, imperceptible to us, is apprehended on their plane for they are capable of emitting and receiving them. 66
Let us wait hopefully for the day when this superlative eye, this wonderful apparatus that we dream of, will finally appear and reveal in all its complexity and majestic grandeur a new world that science has begun to unveil.
Hatonn: I want it here noted that Lakhovsky’s “theories” have been proven beyond any shadow of doubt. If you find and study the work of a famous surgeon and founder of the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, you will find his work follows exactly the theories as presented by Lakhovsky in the work just presented in this series. For reference you will look for the publications of Dr. G. W. Crile. Crile predicted that the coming years would see the conquering of tuberculosis, diabetes and other diseases which were totally without cure in the 1930s. Little could these major contributors to truth be ignored, their work buried, and the lie replaced for the greed of money and a New World Order. Oh Readers, where goest thou? I herein ask that the Editors pull out the writing I offered Wed., Jan 10, 1990. Mr. Martin has pulled it out and I think here would be a good place to represent it for it also deals with visualization and materialization. It references Lakhovsky as mentioned at the start of this writing. I also ask that the prior work presented by Priore and Rife be printed in the paper as space is available and ALL those reference writings offered in the current journal. I also want all work referring to Trevor Constable presented among these works as well. It is through “frequency” that Constable could literally command rain, pollution clearing, etc. Along with the information we wrote about Constable, please offer the two-page document brought to our attention by Mr. James, regarding a full-blown project in Los Angeles. [See Appendix] It doesn’t matter how much material we use for we will simply offer it in the series underway. I want to offer material on Biological Transmutations and follow that with my offering to Dr. Young and Dr. Hoffmann some time back on the DRIAS, (Gaiandriana). We are dealing here with the actual CELLS of which life is formed and maintained—with ability to selectively integrate with any DNA cell-print. It also deals with the mitochondria which is the same print but transmutes and assimilates “fuel” for the body of whatever is projected. Let us call them the DNA-RNA buddies of the transmutation world of LIVING LIFE AND LIGHT PRODUCTION.
