"Complete theories do not
fall from heaven"... Freud.
This well exemplified the
attitude of many people --- that if an idea is not completely
developed and the theory so foolproof as to be beyond
question, then they want no part in it.
Franklin’s discovery of electricity, a scoffer caustically
asked, "Of what use is that kind of knowledge?"
To which Franklin kindly
replied, "Of what use is a child? He may grow into a man."
We are very much in the same
position as Franklin. We have discovered a new force or rather
we have uncovered a force that has been here since the
beginning of time but only a few have recognized it.
The BIG question is, "What
shall we do with it?"
At the moment, we are doing
two things: continuing research and acquainting interested
people with the idea in order to get their cooperation. That
is the reason for this paper. This is the first time the
subject has been discussed publicly before an audience.
Eloptic Radiation Theory
There is an all-pervading
media that is capable of being set into activity by certain
forces. This media might be the same as that which is
described by electronic and electrical engineers and
physicists as the ether in action at higher harmonics than so
far explored, or it may be a finer media. Since it acts as if
it were different, let’s call it the FINE MEDIA for
descriptive purposes at the moment.
Our material world is made
up of combinations of a few units, some of which are called
electrons, protons, and neutrons. These units act as if they
were precipitations out of the Fine Media, because these units
may be disintegrated or put back into their original state in
the Fine Media. There is much in today’s scientific literature
that points the way to these conclusions in addition to our
own research results. The Fine Media can take on or manifest
several different qualities, such as frequency and cohesive
Just as the ether can be
caused to vibrate at different bands of frequencies to
manifest as electricity, radio, heat, light, ultraviolet,
etc., so can the Fine Media be caused to manifest in many
When the Fine Media is
properly influenced, it can be caused to coalesce to the point
where material units such as electrons, protons, and neutrons
are formed. When these units are desired to be grouped
together, a still further manifestation of the Fine Media
takes the form of the cohesive force necessary to form the
nits into elements such as helium, iron, gold, and uranium. A
still further manifestation of the cohesive force is necessary
to form elements into compound or complex groups.
When such units are formed
into elements or compounds, there is a stress field, or aura,
around or radiating from such elements and complex groups.
This field or aura has a frequency that is characteristic for
each nuclear and molecular combination.
For example, chromium having
in its nucleus 24 protons and 30 neutrons will have a slightly
lower frequency than will iron with 26 protons and 28
neutrons, even though both nuclei contain the same total
number of 54 units each.
This phenomenon is the basis
of the idea covered by patents and its use as an analyzing
medium, the subject matter of this paper.
It takes a certain amount of
energy to cause the Fine Media to coalesce so that the units,
protons and neutrons, will be formed and a lesser amount of
energy to combine the units into the group of particles called
the element, e.g., hydrogen, silver or mercury, and still a
lesser amount of energy to form the molecules of the various
Such an element or compound
can be disintegrated back into its components or units or even
completely back into the Fine Media from whence it came. The
atomic bomb action obeys this principle.
To disintegrate an element
and change it back to its units takes energy, the amount
depending upon the way the energy is applied. Assume a very
heavy weight suspended by a long chain. To cause this weight
to oscillate over, e.g., one foot with one blow from a hammer
might require a hammer of very large proportion and a giant to
On the other hand, if a
small boy gave the weight a push, then waited a bit and gave
another push and another, all timed properly, the weight would
begin to swing andintime would be swinging through the arc of
When a single blow in the
form of a fast-moving particle, such as a neutron or alpha
particle, accelerated in a cyclotron, is the "hammer", and the
nucleus of an element is to be broken up, the "hammer" must
strike a tremendous blow (millions of electron volts) to crack
On the other hand, if a
small amount of energy is fed into the nucleus at its proper
frequency, the nucleus will easily, slowly, quietly fall apart
into its units, just by neutralizing the effect of the
cohesive force or binding energy as it is sometimes called.
Thus a little energy of proper frequency steadily applied may
do more than an enormous amount of energy applied in the brute
One of the most used but
least controlled and understood methods of setting the Fine
Media into oscillation is by the Mental-Emotional output from
a human being. Just as the crystal in a radio power oscillator
sets the frequency, and the energy applied to the plate
circuit determines the power output, so does the Mind act to
set the frequency and the Emotional Body to furnish the power.
Every time we generate an
emotion we start a wave motion in the Fine Media. Such a wave
motion can travel infinite distances, and it continues to
oscillate until some counteracting wave motion is set up to
neutralize the original or until the original wave motion is
absorbed by someone or something that is in the proper
frequency relation to it.
Just as a radio receiver
that is tuned to the exact same frequency as a transmitter
acts as if it were connected via some invisible medium to the
transmitter by responding exactly as the transmitter is
activated, so does a specimen of certain things act as if
there were a connection between it and the parent body form
which it was taken by responding exactly to all activities of
the parent body.
At this point, the scoffer
usually says, "That’s all bunk!" Suppose we digress a moment
and see to whom he directs his verdict of "bunk".
Almost 20 years ago, Dr
Robert Millikan, former president of the California Institute
of Technology and Nobel Prize winner in physics for his work
in weighing the electron, was speaking before a joint meeting
of all the technical societies of Kansas City, MO. He showed a
large number of slides, the last of which was a smooth curve
with "f" along the left margin and "e" across the bottom. He
said, "Some day we will find that each of the elements of
material matter vibrates at a frequency, each different from
The writer was thrilled
beyond words because some of the material in this paper had at
that time already been discovered.
Years laterm Dr I.I. Rabi of
Columbia University won the AAAS prize for his work on nuclear
resonance. Quoting from Science News Letter for January 6,
1940, on this work, we read, "Atoms can act like little radio
transmitters broadcasting on ultra short waves."
The Associated Press release
of December 30, 1939, went further and said about Dr Rabi’s
findings, "Man himself as well as all kinds of supposedly
inert matter constantly emit rays. The existence of such rays
coming from man and all living things, and probably from the
inanimate, has been suspected by a few scientists for many
years. Today brought experimental proof. The discovery shows
that every atom and every molecule in nature is a continuous
radio frequency broadcasting station. Those who believe in
telepathy, second sight and clairvoyance, have in today the
first real proof of the existence of invisible rays which
really travel from one person to another."
Another Associated Press
release next day states, "Scientists who have studied Dr
Rabi’s report said it furnishes for the first time a logical
explanation of such things as telepathy, heretofore a
quasi-scientific phenomenon, and the ‘feeling’ that someone
else is approaching in a dark room. It may also prove to be
the source of attraction or repulsion between individuals
since all the atoms of the body are continually broadcasting
weak but detectable radio signals."
David Sarnoff, president of
RCA, speaking before the 7th International Congress on
Rheumatic Diseases in New York (June 1, 1949), said, "Men do
not understand how their thoughts and emotions are born, and
by what power they grow to fruition. Is this force
electricity? When we understand each other, is it because we
are attuned to each other electrically or electronically? If
so, we should learn the electrical characteristics of the
On March 7, 1951, the Miami
Herald (FL) printed a UP release from Copenhagen, Denmark,
Agricultural expert Herluf Hansen said, "Any mental
disturbance is immediately reflected in the pig sty. Keep your
temper, talk friendly to your pigs, and caress them. The
financial result will be excellent."
The same paper on march 16,
1950, carries this, "If beautiful blondes run away at your
approach, if dogs growl at you without explanation, cheer up,
maybe it’s not your face after all. Might be your body
This is the theory put
forward today b y Austrian psychologist Dr Hubert Rochracker,
who says, "The human body sends out minute vibrations that,
for good or ill, affect all our daily lives."
Norman Hillier of New York,
speaking at a convention of the National hair Dressers and
Cosmetologists Association in Des Moines, IA, said, "A quarrel
with her husband will have repercussions in milady’s hair in
five minutes." It reduces the life of a permanent.
The United Press (July 7,
1949) under a Paris dateline quotes two Frenchmen, Jules Clate
and Andre Coatrieux, "Every metal and every person, living or
dead, sends out short waves of different length. Personal
wavelengths are as individual as fingerprints. Eventually we
hope to develop it for diagnosing disease."
You are all acquainted with
the work of Dr J.B. Rhine of Duke University I extrasensory
perception and his study of the mind and the way it can
control things. Every doctor has recognized the effect of the
emotions upon the physical body. Expression such as "that man
gives me a pain" and "this business makes me sick" may be
literally true, according to Dr Edward Weiss of Temple
University Medical School. "The body has some sort of 'organ
language' for the outlet of tense emotions, which mimic almost
any disease", said Dr Weiss.
The work of Dr Felix Bloch
and his group at Stanford University and by Dr E. M. Purcell
and his group at Harvard, the two groups working independently
but simultaneously in 1945, confirmed the work of Dr Rabi and
carried it further.
Anyone who is interested
will find that hardly a week goes by without some press
article or technical reference that ties in and touches on
some phase of this phenomena.
A form of energy hitherto
unknown has been discovered, and a basic patent has been
issued covering its use.
The name ELOPTIC has been
coined and assigned to the energy. The word is taken from the
first two letters of electricity and the word optic, because
the energy has some, but not all, of the characteristics of
both those forms of energy.
Eloptic energy radiates from
or is in some manner given off from, or forms a force field
around, everything in our material world under normal
conditions at ordinary room temperature and without any
treatment of any kind. Each element and combination of
elements that make up our material world gives off this
energy; however, the energy from each element differs in
frequency from the radiation coming from every other element.
Thus, we have a means of determining the contents of an
unknown material by analyzing the radiations from it without
in any way destroying or disturbing the object or material in
question, or having to excite it in any manner.
Eloptic energy obeys certain
laws just as does electricity, heat and light, and we have
uncovered man, but not all, of these laws and have learned
much about the utilization of eloptic energy.
Just as electricity in its
infancy had few uses because little was known about
conductors, insulators, and the laws governing the action of
the force, so is the use of eloptic energy today limited only
by available technology.
We have barely scratched the
surface of the possibilities; however, there are quite a few
uses that have been developed and much is already known about
the behavior of eloptic energy.
We have identified the
radiations from over one-third of the elements of material
matter; the ones easily obtained in relatively pure form such
as beryllium, carbon, magnesium, aluminum, iron, copper, zinc,
silver, tin, tantalum, platinum, gold, lead, bismuth, etc.
Carnotite ore has been analyzed for radium and uranium. Many
ore samples have been analyzed to determine the various
elements contained in them, and the findings have been
verified by more extensive chemical, spectrographic or other
Combinations of two or more
elements give off a characteristic frequency of radiation by
which the combination may be identified. For example,
hydrocarbons such as benzene and toluene have been analyzed
and the findings verified by spectrographic and chemical
Each of the tissues of the
body give off a characteristic frequency of radiation by which
it can be identified and the virility or vitality of the
tissue may be determined by noting the intensity of the
Each disease entity gives
off a characteristic emanation by which its presence in the
body and something of its virility may be determined.
Eloptic energy can be
conducted along light rays, focused with lenses, refracted
with a prism and its effect implanted upon photographic film.
An aerial photograph film
taken at several hundred thousand feet elevation can be used
to determine what was in the objects photographed on the
ground, such as people and metals in buildings, cars, etc.
The apparatus can be set for
any elements such as iron, a stylus placed on the spot on the
film to be analyzed, the energy implanted on the film can be
picked up by the stylus, conducted through the instrument, and
if there is the eloptic energy of iron on the film it is
evident that there was iron on the ground, radiating the
characteristic iron frequency even though not visible to the
Plants can be analyzed to
determine whether the root, stem, or fruit contains the
elements necessary for proper nutrition, such as iron, copper,
manganese and other trace elements. The plant or fruit can
also be analyzed to determine whether it contains arsenic or
other poisons from sprays.
Foods, poisons, drugs, etc.,
can be checked to determine their effect upon the body or any
particular tissue of the body. Those foods or drugs to which a
person is allergic and those which are compatible can be
Just as a photograph can
hold the emanation of the object photographed, so can a
specimen, an article of clothing, a drop of blood, urine or
perspiration carry the emanations of the person from whence it
Such a specimen will carry
all the emanations from all parts of the body of the person
from whom the blood was taken. Its emanation and those taken
directly from the body of the person will be the same. Thus,
many of the characteristics of the person from whom the
bloodor clothing came can be determined.
Thus far, only the
analytical phase of the utilization of eloptic energy has been
discussed, and that only in a very limited way; but it should
be evident that eloptic energy has desirable applications in
the fields of: (1) Laboratory chemical analysis, (2) Mining,
(3) Prospecting, (4) Medicine, (5) Nutrition, (6) Animal
husbandry, (7) Horticulture, (8) Military intelligence, (9)
Criminology, and (10) General betterment of humanity.
Naturally, as time goes on
and research is continued, many additional uses for eloptic
energy will be discovered. We already know that eloptic energy
can be generated or picked up from a natural source, filtered,
amplified and directed into a tissue of the human body, a
plant or animal to produce certain desired effects.
When the eloptic energy from
an unknown material is caused to refract through a proper
prism, it behaves in the same manner as energy from the
visible portion of the spectrum, except that the angles of
refraction are much more acute.
It must not be inferred that
eloptic radiations and visible light and ultraviolet
radiations are the same or related because they all may be
refracted through the same prism or that the frequencies are
related. Eloptic radiations will behave similarly to the
radiations of the electromagnetic spectrum in some respects
and entirely different in other respects, showing that they
are probably not the same energy at all.
For this reason I prefer to
call it the Finer Media.
A 31.5° glass prism
with an index of refraction of 1.505 was used in one
experiment (see circular coordinate chart). Eloptic energy
from a number of elements was caused to enter the prism at an
angle of incidence of 5.5° .
Using the face of the prism
as "0", carbon (element # 6) refracted at an angle of 18.25°
to the face of the prism, and bismuth (element # 83) at
48.25°. Later, hydrogen gas was found to refract at 16.45°, a
range of 31.8° for 83° of the elements of the material world.
employing a 24° prism with an angle of incidence of 17°
showed hydrogen approximately 7° from the face of the prism,
and bismuth at 62.3°, or a range of 5.3° for the same 83
A 19 black plexiglass prism
of 1.847 index of refraction with an angle of incidence of 19
allowed bismuth to refract through at approximately 65.7° and
carbon at 12.15°. All of the angles were measured with a
protractor in a somewhat crude way because of the construction
of the apparatus, but they are very close to being correct.
If a 90° arc is drawn with
the center at the point of eloptic energy emergence at the
face of the prism, between a line projected out in the
direction along the face of the prism, it will be found that
all of the radiations are refracted out in this quadrant (see
Prism Refractor sketch). If the arc of the quadrant is divided
into 1600 parts with "0" on the line extending along the face
of the prism and 1600 on the line perpendicular to the face of
the prism, then it will be found that with a certain apparatus
arrangement, one of the isotopes of beryllium (Atomic # 4)
refracts through at approximately 186 on the scale and that
bismuth (Atomic # 83) refracts through at 1097 on the scale,
and all of the other elements and their various isotopes
refract through in their proper relationship, the one having
the lowest nuclear weight indicating a higher frequency and a
more acute angle of refraction, and the one with a heavier
nuclear weight indicating a lower frequency and emerging at a
less acute angle. The tests show that eloptic energy obeys
some of the laws of refraction just as does the visible
portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Radiation from the Nuclei
A series of experiments has
been carried out that points rather conclusively to the
assumption that the radiation that comes from the various pure
elements is from the entire nucleus and not from the planetary
electrons or from either the neutrons or the protons alone.
The best obtainable pure
specimens of the elements Titanium, Vanadium, Chromium,
Manganese, Iron and Nickel were used. Tests were run on
Radiation Analyzer # 508. Energy peaks from these elements
were measured and the prism dial settings for each peak were
noted. A study of the number of energy peaks for the various
elements indicated that the number coincided in most case with
the number of isotopes of the respective elements.
One important item was that
one of the peaks for chromium and one for titanium were very
close together; that is, they refracted through the prism at
near the same angle. The same for another peak of chromium and
one for iron, and another for an iron peak and a nickel peak.
The number of protons in
each of the isotopes was multiplied by their individual mass
weight of 1.00758 and the number of neutrons were multiplied
by their individual mass weight of 1.00894 and the two
products added to get a factor representing the differnce in
two isotopes of the same nuclear particles but with a
different number of neutrons and protons in each nuclei.
Thus, titanium with 22
protons and 28 neutrons has a factor of 50.41708, while
chromium with 24 protons and 26 neutrons has a factor of
50.41436, a difference of 0.00272, chromium being the lighter,
in nuclear weight.
Titanium = ( 22 x 1.00758 )
+ ( 28 x 1.00894 ) = 50.41708
Chromium = (24 x 1.00758 ) +
( 26 x 1.00894 ) = 50.41436
Difference = 0.00272
These factors and the prism
dial settings were used to produce the curve shown
(Nuclear Weight Factor vs Prism Angle). One outstanding fact
noted was that the lighter the factor value, the lower the
dial setting or higher the frequency of the emanating energy.
Another was the smoothness of the curve. Nearly all points are
in proper relationship. Irregularities are probably due to
slight variations from a true flat of the prism surface.
While plotting this curve,
it was noted that in a few cases, there were apparently too
many energy peaks for some of the elements. Further study
revealed that there were radioactive isotopes of the so-called
man-made variety that would fit into these spots. It had
already been noted that known radioactive elements gave a much
more violent radiation than the so-called stable variety.
Tests were then made on the various isotopes to determine the
distance that the radiation, or rather, the force field,
seemed to extend out from the specimen. Vanadium showed that
the three isotopes radiated 18.5", 5.5", and 15.5"
respectively, indicating that apparently the middle one was
the stable one and the other two were radioactive. The same
thing was done for Iron and the distances were 16.5", 8.5",
17", 13" and 10" respectively. This looked like there might be
a discrepancy as there should not be a radioactive isotope at
the point of higher degree of radiation. A reference to the
percentage of material usually found in the various isotopes
showed that the isotope that radiated 17" was the one that
runs about 90.2% prevalence. It could be that some of the iron
of this weight was radioactive or there might have been some
contamination from manganese which has a radioactive isotope
of the same weight.
After this same procedure
had been followed for all the places where there might be a
question, and everything seemed to fall into proper place, it
was decided to try it on elements at the heavy end of the
list. Bismuth showed four isotopes in a row with radiation
distances as follows: 13" for the stable and lightest isotope,
and 24.5", 22", and 26", respectively, for the radioactive
isotopes. Then a gold link bracelet of very old gold, an
heirloom made before the days of so much alloying, was used.
The lightest was the stable isotope with a radiation distance
of 6", with two others of 12.75" and 14.5" for the two
The field of exploration
into molecular combinations is too vast to be covered in this
paper. In fact, not enough work has been done to warrant such
The chief chemist of the
analytical laboratory of a large corporation learned, through
a mutual friend, about some of our work while the patent
application was being processed in Washington and were not too
anxious to divulge much information, but after several letters
we agreed to help him. One of his letters said, "We have
recently expanded into a new field of research and some of the
problems encountered are giving us a great deal of trouble.
Your apparatus may be the answer."
We allowed him to bring his
specimens to our laboratory and we spent two days with him,
most of the time in getting equipment ready for the tests.
Finally, we analyzed the contents of four bottles marked A1,
A2, A3, A4. We had no idea beforehand what was in them.
We poured a small quantity
of liquid from bottle A1 into a pyrex beaker, placed it in the
instrument, and proceeded to "tune in" to all the "broadcasts"
that came from the beaker and its contents. Then we did the
same for the liquid in bottles A2, A3, and A4. As soon as we
had listed the five energy peaks from the empty beaker, six
from A1, nine from A2, four from A3and nine from A4, and had
charted them with relation to each other, the chemist said,
"Now I know my trouble. A1 is a solvent that works fine, A2 is
supposed to be the same. Our tests and those of the oil
company who sells it to us say it is the same as A1, but it
will not work right and is causing us much trouble. It is
quite obvious that A2 has been contaminated by A4, which is
toluene. A3 is benzene."
The three contaminants
marked (*) were in both solvent A2 and toluene. The empty
beaker contained oxygen and boron, silicon and calcium, per
Corning Glass Company and a separate spectrographic analysis.
He took a copy of our test
data back with him, and in about a month he wrote, "We have
finished our chemical and spectrographic analyses on the
production solvent samples we tested in your laboratory, and I
have gone over the data obtained in your laboratory. Toluene
has nine characteristic groupings within the molecule, five of
these are unique to toluene and four are also found in the
benzene molecule. The data from your laboratory is consistent
with these facts."
Progress to Date
Think of electricity today
and then try to picture Ben Franklin with his first
"condenser" charged by electricity from a cloud via a kite
string. Perhaps some of you remember seeing in museums some of
the early day electrical apparatus and how peculiar it
appeared. Remember the first crystal detector wireless set you
ever saw, and then look at a modern radio installation.
We are just now learning
which materials are conductors and which are insulators of
eloptic energy. Our present apparatus is very crude compared
with what we expect it to be in a few years with the help of
physicists who really want to develop this idea.
Our present method of
detection depends upon the sense of touch of the operator and
that requires training, just as a chemist, a radio operator, a
good cook, an artist, all require training. Some day we will
have learned more about eloptic energy so we can get it to
ring a bell, light a light, or actuate a meter. Until then, we
will be dependent upon present methods.
We have been able to impose
eloptic energy upon an electric current and amplify it, but
since it is not electricity it alone will not operate
So far we have found nothing
that does not lend itself to being analyzed as to its
elemental content with the exception of the air around us and
those materials of which the apparatus is composed, unless
there is a fair quantity available.
Despite some of the
limitations and apparent crudity of the apparatus and
techniques sofar developed, it can do things in the laboratory
in a few minutes that are absolutely impossible or may take
long periods of time by chemical analysis. It can quickly
point the way for chemical analysis to follow in order to
eliminate many of the time-taking tests when an unknown is to
be analyzed. It is especially valuable where there is only a
small quantity of the material available. A drop of unknown
liquid will work better than a gallon. The material to be
analyzed is on no way changed or destroyed during the
analysis. Only the emanation normally radiating from it are
We are not chemical
engineers, physicists or mathematicians, but we have spent
over a quarter of a century observing and experimenting,
blindly most of the time, to uncover a force or energy or
phenomena, about which there had, until recently, been nothing
written that we might follow.
When the US Patent Office
issues a basic patent with half a dozen method claims covering
the use for analysis of an energy that was not mentioned in
any acceptable standard text, it should be quite evident that
this is not a wild dream of a disordered mind.
Magnetism on Eloptic Radiation
A major problem in
prospecting for minerals with the Eloptic Energy Analyzer
proved to be precise location. Experiment had demonstrated
that the energy from buried metal, etc., spreads around it on
a very large irregular pattern, varying in shape and size from
day to day and even from hour to hour. It had also been
observed on a small scale that this energy can be influenced
by magnetism. Therefore it was decided to explore the
possibility of using magnets in the field to eliminate or
concentrate the diffused energy.
For this purpose, several
ounces of sterling silver were buried about 30 inches deep in
a level, open field. The Analyzer was placed nearby and its
input was connected to a long insulated copper wire. On the
end of this was fastened a test probe.
To determine how far the
energy extended from the buried silver, the probe was driven
into the ground successively at various distances along
several radii, and readings were taken on the Analyzer. In
this way the field of radiation was found, at that time, to
form an irregular "pool", extending not less than 50 feet from
the silver and mostly very much farther.
Now two magnets were made,
hollow core solenoids drawing about 10amperes at twelve volts.
These were paced on end about 20 feet due east of the silver,
and iron rods (5/8" by 4 ft) were driven through them and
about two feet into the ground.
At first three batteries (18
volts) were connected, and about an hour was allowed for the
energy field to adjust itself. Then tests were run as before
with the Analyzer, and it was found that the field had shrunk
considerably. Following this, two more batteries were attached
and additional tests were made. The energy field was now found
to have shrunk still farther, and to possess a more simplified
outline showing certain definite characteristics. Toward the
East it terminated near the magnets, and to the Northwest it
exhibited a pronounced bulge of about 15 or 16 ft radius.
At this point the two
magnets and batteries were moved to within 12 ft of the silver
and two more batteries were added, making 7 in all (42 volts).
Measurements with the Analyzer now showed that the energy pool
had completely disappeared as such. There remained only two
well defined bands or streams of energy about a foot wide. One
of these extended along a straight line connecting the silver
and the magnets, and the other thrust out about 8 ft toward
the Northeast, then turned and proceeded directly to the
magnets. Further tests with the Analyzer showed that the
energy drawn to the magnets appeared to dissipate itself above
them and over the batteries in a kind of plume.
This experiment demonstrates
that this energy is definitely subject to magnetic attraction.
It also shows that the energy exhibits a strong tendency to
flow toward the Northwest.

of Emanations from Materials & Measurement of the
(Cl. 250-63) Sept. 27,
Thomas G. Hieronymous
This invention relates to
the art of detecting the presence of and measuring the
intensity or quantity of any of the known electrochemical
series of elements of material matter, or the combination of
two or more such elements, whether in solid, fluid or gaseous
forms at ordinary room temperatures and without special
treatment or requiring any change in the material under
The primary aim of this
invention is the provision of a method and apparatus for
detecting the presence of any element or combination of
elements that may be in the substances under observation and
to determine the intensity or quantity thereof.
This invention has for a
still further object to provide a method and means for
detecting the presence of and analyzing and measuring the
quantity or intensity of elements or combinations of elements
in the substance under observation through the capture and
analysis of radiations emanating from the said elements,
whether the said radiations be of electrical or optical
characteristics, or both.
A yet further aim of this
invention is to provide an instrument having a reaction
device, the surface whereof is affected by the introduction of
radiations thereto, in such a manner that the surface of the
device will have its ability to resist movement of articles
over its face changed when energy flows through the apparatus,
of which the reaction device is a part.
A further aim of the
invention is to provide an atomic radiation analyzer, having
as one of its important elements, a reaction device, the
surface whereof is affected to increase adhesion or friction
as the operator of the analyzer strokes the surface of the
device and manipulates the instrument to direct radiation
It ahs been discovered that
there are radiations emanating from or released from each of
the known elements constituting material matter. These
radiations occur at ordinary room temperatures, i.e., 40° F to
90° F and they have electrical and optical characteristics and
frequencies which are disposed in the zone from the violet ray
portion of the visible spectrum up into the ultraviolet
portion, which zone has as yet not been fully explored. Since
it has been found that these radiations from the elements or
their effect may be carried over electrical conductors, it is
the object of this invention to provide apparatus having
suitable conductors and parts so that analyzing of substances
may be accomplished. The radiation or the effect of such
radiations from known elements or combinations of two or more
elements of material matter may not only be carried over
electrical conductors and handled in a manner similar to an
ordinary electrical currnet, but they may be affected by
electrical capacity inductance and resistance. The radiations
may also be refracted, focused, diffracted or otherwise
manipulated in the same manner as the radiations of the
visible spectrum. Accordingly, therefore, this invention has
for one of its aims to provide an instrument for handling the
radiations, identifying their presence, analyzing them and
measuring their intensity --- all to the end that the presence
of one or more of the known elements may be concluded from the
character of the radiation as determined by the behavior of
the analyzing device and the values read from the appropriate
scales forming a part of the instrument.
Other objects of the
invention will appear during the course of the following
specifications, referring to the accompanying drawing,

Prior to referring
specifically to the parts of the apparatus diagrammatically
illustrated in the drawing, clarification of the theory upon
which the invention is predicated will be made by explaining
experiments heretofore conducted and capable of proving the
phenomenal theories hereinafter disclosed as having a bearing
upon the practicability and utility of both the electrical and
Radiations from each of the
known elements of matter produce some form of energy, probably
electrons which can be made to flow along electrical
conductors. The flow from each of the elements having
characteristics different from the others. Conversely, the
flow of electrons along a conductor produces a radiation
having characteristics of the radiation from each respective
Such of the known elements
as are required to feed growing plants have been transmitted
to the plants through metallic conductors as the plants were
entirely isolated from the elements upon which they were fed.
More precisely, seeds were planted in boxes in a darkened
basement room. One of the boxes of plants of plants containing
some of the seeds was used as a control and no apparatus for
transmitting element radiations thereto provided. The
remaining boxes of plants had electrodes or plates of
conducting material mounted or otherwise disposed adjacent
thereto, and each box of plants was separately attached to a
conductor extending to a plant outside the building where
electrodes or plates were attached to a conductor extending to
a point outside the building where electrodes or plates were
attached to the conductors and allowed to remain exposed to
the light. Such of the known elements as required to impart
normal characteristics to the plants were apparently fed
thereto by having the radiations of the elements from the
light conducted to the plants through the wires and associated
electrodes. The treated plants were relatively healthy but the
control plants assumed the characteristics of growing
vegetation which has been deprived of the elements in natural
light. Particularly was the control plant devoid of
chlorophyll while the remaining plants were green.
Apparatus for laboratory or
commercial use and for detecting the presence of any of the
known elements, preferably relies upon the element of touch,
and therefore the skill of the operator. The instrument
diagrammatically illustrated in Figure 1 comprises a unit 10
including a coil 12 disposed to pick up radiation from
substance 14, wherein the known elements are disposed and that
are to be detected. The temperature of substance 14 may be
within the range of from 40° to 90° F, but such
temperature is not critical. This range has been found
satisfactory in actual practice.
Coil 12 may be a spirally
wound flat body approximately 2 inches in diameter and formed
of magnet insulated wire of any conventional size. As an
alternative, this coil 12 may be a single layer, cylindrical
coil, wound on an insulating material substantially 1 inch in
diameter. The examples given for this coil 12 are not critical
and so long as the coil is in the field of radiation of
substance 14, the purpose of unit 10 will be fulfilled.
Instead of employing coil
12, wire 20 may be directly connected to substance 14 or wire
20 may be terminated in an electrode and the latter disposed
with relation to substance 14 as to pick up the radiations
therefrom, as does coil 12 in the illustrated embodiment. In
this case, wire 18 may be grounded or connected separately to
substance 14 or terminated in another electrode which may also
be placed near substance 14. The proximity of substance 14 to
coil 12 or the electrodes as the case may be, is such as to be
within the field of radiation of the emanations from substance
Apparatus 16 is a manually
manipulatable analyzer tuneable to the specific radiation
desired. It consists of two principal parts, the first being
the two standard type of variable condensers, 22 and 24, and
the second being the ray refracting device made up of
electrode 32 --- passageway 36, prism 28, and electrode 38,
all as shown in Figure 2. Apparatus 16 is joined to unit 10 by
conductors 18 and 20 across which is disposed a conventional
variable condenser 22 and with which is employed a condenser
of similar type 24, located in conductor 26, as illustrated.
Variable condensers 22 and 24 may be of standard radio
broadcast type and they are provided with graduated scales in
Prism 28 is of any suitable
ray defracting substance as glass, quartz or analogous
materials. In practice a prism 28 having two polished faces
disposed at angles from 30 to 60 degrees has proved
satisfactory. An electrode 32 is joined to coil 12 by
conductor 20 and conductor 34. Stationary electrode 32 may be
of any electrical conducting material such as aluminum, brass,
copper or substances having analogous electrical properties.
The distance of electrode 32 from prism 28 is not critical so
long as the radiations or emanations reach prism 28 through a
confined path of travel in the nature of a thin band or line.
In practice, this distance was from one-half to two inches. A
passageway 36 formed between a pair of optically opaque
insulating elements directs the radiations to a desired area
on one face of prism 28.
The angle of incidence of
this path of travel to the face of the prism 28 was of the
order of 5.5 degrees for best results and for obtaining the
wisest useful segment along scale 31.
An electrode 38 shiftable
along scale 31 is joined to unit 40 by conductor 42. Electrode
38 is of the same specifications as to materials and distance
from prism 28 as electrode 32 but is suitably mounted for
movement adjacent to scale 31 where its position may readily
be indicated by a pointer 78 moveable therewith and extending
outwardly therefrom toward scale 31 in alignment with the path
of travel of the thin ray of energy indicated by the line 76.
The axis of rotation of electrode 38 is substantially on a
median line extending longitudinally across the face of prism
28 proximal to electrode 38. Electrodes 32 and 38 work best
when they are relatively thin and of the order of a few mils
As illustrated in Figure 2,
scale 31 is calibrated with indicia 44, and these indicia are
on chart 46 along one edge thereof. The indicia on chart 46
have been given a corresponding reference numeral to those on
scale 31 for clarifying the description hereinafter set down.
Indicia 48 on chart 46 designate the atomic weight of elements
of matter and continue up to include all known elements of the
electrochemical series when the full size chart is employed.
Unit 40 is a variable
resistor. It may be either a continuous variable type or it
may consist of a series of non-inductive resistance units 50,
52, 54 and 56, each adjusted by a switch having movable points
62, 64, 66 and 68 respectively.
In practice, unit 50 will
have ten times the resistance of unit 52, which in turn is ten
times the size of unit 54, etc. (The values may range from
fractions of 1 ohm up to several megohms). Unit 50, e.g.,
might be 1 megohm in steps of 100,000 ohms each; unit 52 would
then be 100,000 in steps of 10,000 ohms each; unit 54 then
would be 10,000 ohms total in steps of 1,000 ohms each, and so
on until the smallest unit would have steps low enough to give
the desired exactness to the measured volume or intensity of
Unit 40 is joined to unit 70
by means of an untuned radio frequency type transformer 58
through the medium of conductors 42 and 60. Unit 40 may be
joined to unit 78 by resistance coupling or other conventional
coupling of the type frequently used in standard broadcast
radio receivers and which is analogous to transformer 58.
Unit 70 may be a
conventional three stage tuned radio frequency broadcast band
type of amplifier with the usual variable resistances omitted
or it may be of the resistance coupled or impedance coupled
type often used in radio broadcast type amplifiers. Said
amplifier intensifies the value of the radiations reaching it
so that the effect upon detector 72 is clearly discernable.
Under some conditions, the reactions from unit 40 may be put
directly into detector 72 without interposing unit 70 but
amplification of the radiations is desirable.
Detector 72 is a device that
will indicate a change from its normal state when the
radiations from the analyzer 16 are caused to influence it.
Detector 72 is preferably an
electrical conductor coated with a material having such
characteristics that under the influence of energy flowing
through the conducting portion, the coating will change its
surface tension or viscosity, or in some manner give evidence
of the presence of the energy flowing through the conducting
portion by producing a greater drag or resistance to the
movement of any part of the body of the operator thereover,
such as the hand or fingers. It has been found practical to
use a metal plate covered with a sheet of plastic or coated
with lacquer, which plate is of an area convenient for
stroking with the tips of the fingers or the palm of the hand.
It may also be a sheet or plastic with a coil similar to coil
12 disposed adjacent thereto and connected to the coupling
Figure 4 illustrates another
form of that part of unit 16, sowing Figure 2, so far as the
element separator or filter portion thereof is concerned. This
separation or filtering is accomplished in the embodiment
illustrated in Figure 1 and Figure 2 by prism 28. In Figure 4
a lens 100 has the electrode 32 disposed adjacent thereto and
movable electrode 38 is shiftable toward and from lens 100.
Scale indicia 44 are
disposed in a line parallel to the path of travel of electrode
38 and the element or elements involved will be determined by
the location or the scale of pointer 78 at the instant a
reaction is obtained at detector 72.
Chart 46 is of course
produced as a part of the complete apparatus when such
apparatus is manufactured and after prism 28 (or lens 100, as
the case may be) is installed as a unit of the material
detector. A small quantity of each of the known chemical
elements is placed adjacent to coil 12 and with full knowledge
of the element, the angle of radiation formed by line 76 and,
the face of the prism 28, is determined and the degree numeral
on scale 31, which identifies the angle of radiation, is
placed on chart 46 as one of the indicia 44 (degree readings
from scale 31) and indicia 48 (the atomic weight of the known
elements) then when the apparatus is in practical use, any
material or substance may be located adjacent to coil 12 and
its components definitely determined by positioning electrode
38 on a line of radiation 76 where the degree number on the
face of the scale 31 is quickly read and used by referring to
chart 46. When the degree indicia 44 is so located, the line
on chart 46 extending therefrom is followed until it reaches
the diagonal line 45 on chart 46 whereupon the operator then
follows the intersecting line to the lower edge of the chart
where the value of the atomic weight 48 is read. These atomic
weights are well known and are used in conventional texts and
In practice, for example,
let it be assumed that substance 14 contains calcium but it is
not known that such is the case. The angle at which the
unknown ray or radiation leaves prism 28 will teach its name
form as the operator moves the fingers over the surface of
detector 72, electrode 38 is shifted slowly and pointer 78
moves along scale 31 until a greater degree of adhesion or
resistance to motion at the surface of the detector 72 is set
up. This occurs when the energy or radiation flows from unit
16 through units 40 and 70 into detector 72. When electrode 38
is at a position where it is intercepting a radiation from
prism 28, or lense 100, the resistance to stroke at detector
72 will be of highest order.
As soon as electrode 38 has
been positioned as described, variable condenser 22 is
adjusted while the operator continues to stroke detector 72 to
a position where the greatest drag at detector 72 is again
manifested. Next, variable condenser 24 is similarly
manipulated to obtain a setting where the drag at detector 72
again reaches a maximum. Electrode 38 is then readjusted for a
final position. The employment of condensers 22 and 24 insure
a more accurate setting of pointer 78 by virtue of their
additional filtering action.
In the illustration,
electrode 38 has intercepted the path of radiation with
pointer 78 at the numeral 30 on scale 31 and reference to
chart 46 will teach the operator that the element having
atomic weight 79.2 is that from which the radiation along
dotted line 76 is traveling. If atomic weight 79.2 is calcium
then that element in substance 14 has been located.
The manner of using lense
100 is substantially the same as described in connection with
the use of prism 28. The focal point of paths of radiation of
the elements will cause detector 72 to react and establish a
drag to the operator’s touch, whereupon the scale 31 may be
read and its reading translated by reference to chart 46.
What actually happens at
detector 72 to increase or decrease it drag to the touch of
the operator, is not known but the apparatus functions as
above set forth when constructed as specified, and therefore,
a positively acting analyzer for atomic radiations is produced
even though the principle upon which it is based is not fully
Radiation from hydrogen
passes through prism 26 at the sharpest angle or at the lowest
degree measured from the face of prism 28. Radiations from
other elements and their isotopes pass through prism 28 at
greater angles but in the same order as their atomic weights
--- the heavier the element or its isotope, the wider the
A substance composed of two
or more of the known elements may be analyzed as herein set
down to determine its component constituents. The substance
itself which consists of two or more known elements may be
identified because the emanations therefrom will produce a
composite frequency peculiar to that combination of elements.
All combinations may be charted in precisely the same manner
as herein described for all the individual known elements in
the electrochemical series.
Unit 40 is used to measure
the intensity of the radiations from a given element or
substance by adjusting the several switches comprising unit 40
until the maximum amount of resistance has been introduced
into the circuit without interrupting the reactions manifested
at detector 72. The switches are calibrated in conventional
resistance values and a chart must be prepared that will
relate the value indicating by switch setting of unit 40 the
quantitative units of measurement.
It is realized that
apparatus for detecting materials and measuring the volumes
thereof, having physical characteristics different from those
illustrated and described, might be made without departing
from the spirit of the invention or scope of the appended
Having thus described the
invention, what is claimed as new and desired to be secured by

Chlorophyll Energy over Wires"
by Dr. T. Galen Hieronymous
About 1930, I decided to try an experiment of conducting
Chlorophyll Energy over wires. I had been conducting Eloptic
Energy over long distance via wire.
A wood platform was installed on the south side of the house
about six feet above the ground in order to get the desired
potential of energy which increases with distance above the
Having some wooden cigar boxes available, I cut boxes apart and
cut pieces and made eight boxes that were 2" X 2" X 4" although
any size boxes will work.
Aluminum foil was placed on the bottom of seven boxes inside so
as to be in contact with the soil.
Similar pieces of foil were placed on the underside of the lid
of each box.
Wires were connected to each piece of foil, the wires from the
lids were extended to the sun plates, the wires from the bottom
foils were connected to the water pipe and thus grounded.
See Figure #2 (on the right) for details of the box
Refer to Figure #1 which shows a 'side' view of the
Figure #3 shows the system of connections.
Seven plates were placed on the platform so as to pick up
energy from the sun and a wire was connected to each plate and
extended down into the basement, each box having the top foil
plate connected via wire to a plate out on the platform in the
sunlight. The eighth box had no connection to the outside, it
being the 'control'.
The plates on the platform were all different in size. The
smallest was 2" X 4", the next 4" X 8", the largest was about 8"
X 10" and one plate was copper screen wire.
Some dirt was screened and 1/2 inch of dirt placed in each box.
Oat seeds were selected, all of uniform size and planted in two
rows of 5 seeds spaced in each row, the 1/2" of dirt was placed
on top in the box. The same amount of water was added to each
box as needed from day to day.
All of the seeds sprouted about the same time. Then we noticed
that there was no chlorophyll in the 10 plants in the control
box. All of the boxes connected to outside plates had plants
with much chlorophyll.
We were quite surprised to note that the plants in boxes with
large outside plates seemed to look as if they had been
subjected to heat. Apparently the large outside plates were
bringing in an excess of energy compared with the effect of the
small size outside plates.
Very soon, the plants grew too tall for the small amount of
'head room' in the boxes so each box was equipped with a spacer
to raise the top of each lid up about 3/4".
The boxes were placed on a shelf in the end of the basement
where there was little light, with no windows at that end. Also,
the shelf was kept dark by a board placed in front and another
on top to exclude all light. The plants were dark all of the
time except when they were examined by a flashlight.
A friend tried to duplicate the experiment, but did not follow
all instructions. Their basement was only about 3 feet from the
basement floor to the ground level outside.
Instead of placing the outside plates above ground 6 feet, they
laid on the ground, thus they did not have the potential
differences between outside collector and inside boxes and the
experiment was a failure. Also, there was a window near that let
much light into where the boxes were placed.
Anyone who expects to duplicate an experiment should be sure
they know all the factors and that they follow the instructions
exactly without any substitution or change. And as to changes,
if you are trying to get a special result and are trying out
several methods or ideas, one of the cardinal points to doing
good work is to make just one change at a time.
Then you know just what the results are. If you make two
changes and the result is a failure, you do not know but that
one of the changes and the results is a failure, you do not know
but that one of the changes may have been alright.
