Eloptic Radiation Theory
There is an all-pervading media

be the same as that which is described by electronic and electrical
and physicists as the ether in action at higher harmonics than so far
it may be a finer media. Since it acts as if it were different, let’s
it the FINE MEDIA for descriptive purposes at the moment.
Our material world is made up
combinations of a few units, some of which are called electrons,
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
original state in the Fine Media. There is much in today’s scientific
that points the way to these conclusions in addition to our own
results. The Fine Media can take on or manifest several different
such as frequency and cohesive force.
Just as the ether can be caused
vibrate at different bands of frequencies to manifest as electricity,
heat, light, ultraviolet, etc., so can the Fine Media be caused to
in many ways.
When the Fine Media is properly
it can be caused to coalesce to the point where material units such as
electrons, protons, and neutrons are formed. When these units are
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
such as helium, iron, gold, and uranium. A still further manifestation
of the cohesive force is necessary to form elements into compound or
When such units are formed into
or compounds, there is a stress field, or aura, around or radiating
such elements and complex groups. This field or aura has a frequency
is characteristic for each nuclear and molecular combination.
For example, chromium having in
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
idea covered by patents and its use as an analyzing medium, the subject
matter of this paper.
It takes a certain amount of
to cause the Fine Media to coalesce so that the units, protons and
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
and still a lesser amount of energy to form the molecules of the

disintegrated back into its components or units or even completely back
into the Fine Media from whence it came. The atomic bomb action obeys
To disintegrate an element and
it back to its units takes energy, the amount depending upon the way
energy is applied. Assume a very heavy weight suspended by a long

When a single blow in the form
a fast-moving particle, such as a neutron or alpha particle,
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
volts) to crack the nucleus.
On the other hand, if a small
of energy is fed into the nucleus at its proper frequency, the nucleus
will easily, slowly, quietly fall apart into its units, just by
the effect of the cohesive force or binding energy as it is sometimes
Thus a little energy of proper frequency steadily applied may do more
an enormous amount of energy applied in the brute force manner.
One of the most used but least
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
we start a wave motion in the Fine Media. Such a wave motion can travel
infinite distances, and it continues to oscillate until some
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
relation to it.
Just as a radio receiver that
tuned to the exact same frequency as a transmitter acts as if it were
via some invisible medium to the transmitter by responding exactly as
transmitter is activated, so does a specimen of certain things act as
there were a connection between it and the parent body form which it
taken by responding exactly to all activities of the parent body.

says, "That’s all bunk!" Suppose we digress a moment and see to whom he
directs his verdict of "bunk".

that hardly a week goes by without some press article or technical
that ties in and touches on some phase of this phenomena.
A form of energy hitherto
has been discovered, and a basic patent has been issued covering its
The name ELOPTIC has been
and assigned to the energy. The word is taken from the first two
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
in some manner given off from, or forms a force field around,
in our material world under normal conditions at ordinary room
and without any treatment of any kind. Each element and combination of
elements that make up our material world gives off this energy;
the energy from each element differs in frequency from the radiation
from every other element. Thus, we have a means of determining the
of an unknown material by analyzing the radiations from it without in
way destroying or disturbing the object or material in question, or
to excite it in any manner.
Eloptic energy obeys certain

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
today limited only by available technology.
We have barely scratched the
of the possibilities; however, there are quite a few uses that have
developed and much is already known about the behavior of eloptic

the energy implanted on the film can be picked up by the stylus,
through the instrument, and if there is the eloptic energy of iron on
film it is evident that there was iron on the ground, radiating the
iron frequency even though not visible to the eye.
Plants can be analyzed to
whether the root, stem, or fruit contains the elements necessary for
nutrition, such as iron, copper, manganese and other trace elements.
plant or fruit can also be analyzed to determine whether it contains

Foods, poisons, drugs, etc.,
be checked to determine their effect upon the body or any particular
of the body. Those foods or drugs to which a person is allergic and
which are compatible can be quickly identified.
Just as a photograph can hold
emanation of the object photographed, so can a specimen, an article of
clothing, a drop of blood, urine or perspiration carry the emanations
the person from whence it came.
Such a specimen will carry all
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
from whom the bloodor clothing came can be determined.
Thus far, only the analytical
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
(2) Mining, (3) Prospecting, (4) Medicine, (5) Nutrition, (6) Animal
(7) Horticulture, (8) Military intelligence, (9) Criminology, and (10)
General betterment of humanity.
Naturally, as time goes on and
is continued, many additional uses for eloptic energy will be
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
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
radiations and visible light and ultraviolet radiations are the same or
related because they all may be refracted through the same prism or
the frequencies are related. Eloptic radiations will behave similarly
the radiations of the electromagnetic spectrum in some respects and
different in other respects, showing that they are probably not the
energy at all.
For this reason I prefer to
it the Finer Media.
A 31.5° glass prism
an index of refraction of 1.505 was used in one experiment (see
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
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
was found to refract at 16.45°, a range of 31.8° for 83° of
the elements of the material world.
Another arrangement employing a
prism with an angle of incidence of 17° showed hydrogen
7° from the face of the prism, and bismuth at 62.3°, or a range
of 5.3° for the same 83 elements.
A 19 black plexiglass prism of
index of refraction with an angle of incidence of 19 allowed bismuth to
refract through at approximately 65.7° and carbon at 12.15°.

beryllium (Atomic # 4) refracts through at approximately 186 on the

their proper relationship, the one having the lowest nuclear weight

a heavier nuclear weight indicating a lower frequency and emerging at a

laws of refraction just as does the visible portion of the
Radiation from the Nuclei of
A series of experiments has
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
or the protons alone.
The best obtainable pure
of the elements Titanium, Vanadium, Chromium, Manganese, Iron and
were used. Tests were run on Radiation Analyzer # 508. Energy peaks
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
indicated that the number coincided in most case with the number of
of the respective elements.
One important item was that one
the peaks for chromium and one for titanium were very close together;
is, they refracted through the prism at near the same angle. The same
another peak of chromium and one for iron, and another for an iron peak
and a nickel peak.
The number of protons in each
the isotopes was multiplied by their individual mass weight of 1.00758
and the number of neutrons were multiplied by their individual mass
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
number of neutrons and protons in each nuclei.
Thus, titanium with 22 protons
28 neutrons has a factor of 50.41708, while chromium with 24 protons
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 ) + (
x 1.00894 ) = 50.41708
Chromium = (24 x 1.00758 ) + ( 26
x 1.00894 ) = 50.41436
Difference = 0.00272
These factors and the prism
settings were used to produce the curve shown (Nuclear Weight
vs Prism Angle). One outstanding fact noted was that the lighter the
value, the lower the dial setting or higher the frequency of the
energy. Another was the smoothness of the curve. Nearly all points are
in proper relationship. Irregularities are probably due to slight
from a true flat of the prism surface.
While plotting this curve, it
noted that in a few cases, there were apparently too many energy peaks
for some of the elements. Further study revealed that there were
isotopes of the so-called man-made variety that would fit into these

violent radiation than the so-called stable variety. Tests were then

indicating that apparently the middle one was the stable one and the
two were radioactive. The same thing was done for Iron and the
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
that radiated 17" was the one that runs about 90.2% prevalence. It
be that some of the iron of this weight was radioactive or there might
have been some contamination from manganese which has a radioactive
of the same weight.
After this same procedure had
followed for all the places where there might be a question, and
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
radiation distances as follows: 13" for the stable and lightest
and 24.5", 22", and 26", respectively, for the radioactive isotopes.
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 radioactive isotopes.
The field of exploration into
combinations is too vast to be covered in this paper. In fact, not
work has been done to warrant such detail.
The chief chemist of the
laboratory of a large corporation learned, through a mutual friend,

Progress to Date
Think of electricity today and
try to picture Ben Franklin with his first "condenser" charged by
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
and then look at a modern radio installation.
We are just now learning which
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.

Some day we will have learned more about eloptic energy so we can get
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

it alone will not operate electrical devices.
So far we have found nothing

the exception of the air around us and those materials of which the

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

or mathematicians, but we have spent over a quarter of a century
and experimenting, blindly most of the time, to uncover a force or

that we might follow.

of Magnetism on Eloptic Radiation
A major problem in prospecting
minerals with the Eloptic Energy Analyzer proved to be precise
Experiment had demonstrated that the energy from buried metal, etc.,

from day to day and even from hour to hour. It had also been observed
a small scale that this energy can be influenced by magnetism.
it was decided to explore the possibility of using magnets in the field
to eliminate or concentrate the diffused energy.
For this purpose, several
of sterling silver were buried about 30 inches deep in a level, open
The Analyzer was placed nearby and its input was connected to a long
copper wire. On the end of this was fastened a test probe.
To determine how far the energy
from the buried silver, the probe was driven into the ground
at various distances along several radii, and readings were taken on

Now two magnets were made,
core solenoids drawing about 10amperes at twelve volts. These were

were connected, and about an hour was allowed for the energy field to
itself. Then tests were run as before with the Analyzer, and it was
that the field had shrunk considerably. Following this, two more
were attached and additional tests were made. The energy field was now
found to have shrunk still farther, and to possess a more simplified
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
batteries were moved to within 12 ft of the silver and two more
were added, making 7 in all (42 volts). Measurements with the Analyzer
now showed that the energy pool had completely disappeared as such.
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
then turned and proceeded directly to the magnets. Further tests with
Analyzer showed that the energy drawn to the magnets appeared to
itself above them and over the batteries in a kind of plume.
This experiment demonstrates
this energy is definitely subject to magnetic attraction. It also shows
that the energy exhibits a strong tendency to flow toward the Northwest.
US Patent #
from Materials & Measurement of the Volumes Thereof
(Cl. 250-63) Sept. 27, 1940
Thomas G. Hieronymous
This invention relates to the
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,
or gaseous forms at ordinary room temperatures and without special
or requiring any change in the material under observation.
The primary aim of this
is the provision of a method and apparatus for detecting the presence
any element or combination of elements that may be in the substances
observation and to determine the intensity or quantity thereof.
This invention has for a still
object to provide a method and means for detecting the presence of and
analyzing and measuring the quantity or intensity of elements or
of elements in the substance under observation through the capture and
analysis of radiations emanating from the said elements, whether the
radiations be of electrical or optical characteristics, or both.
A yet further aim of this
is to provide an instrument having a reaction device, the surface
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
of which the reaction device is a part.
A further aim of the invention
to provide an atomic radiation analyzer, having as one of its important
elements, a reaction device, the surface whereof is affected to
adhesion or friction as the operator of the analyzer strokes the
of the device and manipulates the instrument to direct radiation
It ahs been discovered that
are radiations emanating from or released from each of the known
constituting material matter. These radiations occur at ordinary room
i.e., 40° F to 90° F and they have electrical and optical
and frequencies which are disposed in the zone from the violet ray
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
from the elements or their effect may be carried over electrical
it is the object of this invention to provide apparatus having suitable
conductors and parts so that analyzing of substances may be
The radiation or the effect of such radiations from known elements or
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
currnet, but they may be affected by electrical capacity inductance and
resistance. The radiations may also be refracted, focused, diffracted
otherwise manipulated in the same manner as the radiations of the
spectrum. Accordingly, therefore, this invention has for one of its
to provide an instrument for handling the radiations, identifying their
presence, analyzing them and measuring their intensity --- all to the
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
analyzing device and the values read from the appropriate scales

Such of the known elements as
required to feed growing plants have been transmitted to the plants
metallic conductors as the plants were entirely isolated from the
upon which they were fed. More precisely, seeds were planted in boxes
a darkened basement room. One of the boxes of plants of plants
some of the seeds was used as a control and no apparatus for
element radiations thereto provided. The remaining boxes of plants had
electrodes or plates of conducting material mounted or otherwise
adjacent thereto, and each box of plants was separately attached to a
extending to a plant outside the building where electrodes or plates
attached to a conductor extending to a point outside the building where
electrodes or plates were attached to the conductors and allowed to
exposed to the light. Such of the known elements as required to impart
normal characteristics to the plants were apparently fed thereto by
the radiations of the elements from the light conducted to the plants

healthy but the control plants assumed the characteristics of growing

was the control plant devoid of chlorophyll while the remaining plants
Apparatus for laboratory or
use and for detecting the presence of any of the known elements,
relies upon the element of touch, and therefore the skill of the

wherein the known elements are disposed and that are to be detected.
temperature of substance 14 may be within the range of from 40° to
90° F, but such temperature is not critical. This range has
found satisfactory in actual practice.
Coil 12 may be a spirally wound
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
1 inch in diameter. The examples given for this coil 12 are not
and so long as the coil is in the field of radiation of substance 14,
purpose of unit 10 will be fulfilled.
Instead of employing coil 12,
20 may be directly connected to substance 14 or wire 20 may be
in an electrode and the latter disposed with relation to substance 14
to pick up the radiations therefrom, as does coil 12 in the illustrated
embodiment. In this case, wire 18 may be grounded or connected
to substance 14 or terminated in another electrode which may also be
near substance 14. The proximity of substance 14 to coil 12 or the
as the case may be, is such as to be within the field of radiation of
emanations from substance 14.
Apparatus 16 is a manually
analyzer tuneable to the specific radiation desired. It consists of two
principal parts, the first being the two standard type of variable
22 and 24, and the second being the ray refracting device made up of
32 --- passageway 36, prism 28, and electrode 38, all as shown in
2. Apparatus 16 is joined to unit 10 by conductors 18 and 20 across
is disposed a conventional variable condenser 22 and with which is
a condenser of similar type 24, located in conductor 26, as
Variable condensers 22 and 24 may be of standard radio broadcast type
they are provided with graduated scales in conventional manner.
Prism 28 is of any suitable ray
substance as glass, quartz or analogous materials. In practice a prism
28 having two polished faces disposed at angles from 30 to 60 degrees
proved satisfactory. An electrode 32 is joined to coil 12 by conductor
20 and conductor 34. Stationary electrode 32 may be of any electrical
material such as aluminum, brass, copper or substances having analogous
electrical properties. The distance of electrode 32 from prism 28 is
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
this distance was from one-half to two inches. A passageway 36 formed
a pair of optically opaque insulating elements directs the radiations
a desired area on one face of prism 28.
The angle of incidence of this
of travel to the face of the prism 28 was of the order of 5.5 degrees
best results and for obtaining the wisest useful segment along scale 31.
An electrode 38 shiftable along
31 is joined to unit 40 by conductor 42. Electrode 38 is of the same
as to materials and distance from prism 28 as electrode 32 but is
mounted for movement adjacent to scale 31 where its position may
be indicated by a pointer 78 moveable therewith and extending outwardly
therefrom toward scale 31 in alignment with the path of travel of the
ray of energy indicated by the line 76. The axis of rotation of
38 is substantially on a median line extending longitudinally across
face of prism 28 proximal to electrode 38. Electrodes 32 and 38 work
when they are relatively thin and of the order of a few mils thickness.
As illustrated in Figure 2,
31 is calibrated with indicia 44, and these indicia are on chart 46
one edge thereof. The indicia on chart 46 have been given a
reference numeral to those on scale 31 for clarifying the description
set down. Indicia 48 on chart 46 designate the atomic weight of
of matter and continue up to include all known elements of the
series when the full size chart is employed.
Unit 40 is a variable resistor.
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
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
megohms). Unit 50, e.g., might be 1 megohm in steps of 100,000 ohms
unit 52 would then be 100,000 in steps of 10,000 ohms each; unit 54
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
to the measured volume or intensity of the radiations.
Unit 40 is joined to unit 70 by
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
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
stage tuned radio frequency broadcast band type of amplifier with the
variable resistances omitted or it may be of the resistance coupled or
impedance coupled type often used in radio broadcast type amplifiers.
amplifier intensifies the value of the radiations reaching it so that
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
indicate a change from its normal state when the radiations from the
16 are caused to influence it.
Detector 72 is preferably an
conductor coated with a material having such characteristics that under
the influence of energy flowing through the conducting portion, the
will change its surface tension or viscosity, or in some manner give
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
body of the operator thereover, such as the hand or fingers. It has
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
and connected to the coupling transformer 14.
Figure 4 illustrates another
of that part of unit 16, sowing Figure 2, so far as the element
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
a line parallel to the path of travel of electrode 38 and the element
elements involved will be determined by the location or the scale of
78 at the instant a reaction is obtained at detector 72.
Chart 46 is of course produced
a part of the complete apparatus when such apparatus is manufactured
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
elements is placed adjacent to coil 12 and with full knowledge of the
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
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
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
line 45 on chart 46 whereupon the operator then follows the
line to the lower edge of the chart where the value of the atomic
48 is read. These atomic weights are well known and are used in
texts and scientific works.
In practice, for example, let
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
prism 28 will teach its name form as the operator moves the fingers
the surface of detector 72, electrode 38 is shifted slowly and pointer
78 moves along scale 31 until a greater degree of adhesion or
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
a radiation from prism 28, or lense 100, the resistance to stroke at
72 will be of highest order.
As soon as electrode 38 has
positioned as described, variable condenser 22 is adjusted while the
continues to stroke detector 72 to a position where the greatest drag
detector 72 is again manifested. Next, variable condenser 24 is
manipulated to obtain a setting where the drag at detector 72 again
a maximum. Electrode 38 is then readjusted for a final position. The
of condensers 22 and 24 insure a more accurate setting of pointer 78 by
virtue of their additional filtering action.
In the illustration, electrode
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
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
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
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
What actually happens at
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
specified, and therefore, a positively acting analyzer for atomic
is produced even though the principle upon which it is based is not

A substance composed of two or
of the known elements may be analyzed as herein set down to determine
component constituents. The substance itself which consists of two or
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
Unit 40 is used to measure the
of the radiations from a given element or substance by adjusting the
switches comprising unit 40 until the maximum amount of resistance has
been introduced into the circuit without interrupting the reactions
at detector 72. The switches are calibrated in conventional resistance
values and a chart must be prepared that will relate the value
by switch setting of unit 40 the quantitative units of measurement.

characteristics different from those illustrated and described, might

About 1930, I decided to try an experiment of conducting

A wood platform was installed on the south side of the house about
feet above the ground in order to get the desired potential of energy

Having some wooden cigar boxes available, I cut boxes apart and
pieces and made eight boxes that were 2" X 2" X 4" although any size
Aluminum foil was placed on the bottom of seven boxes inside so as
be in contact with the soil.
Similar pieces of foil were placed on the underside of the lid of
Wires were connected to each piece of foil, the wires from the

Seven plates were placed on the platform so as to pick up energy

basement, each box having the top foil plate connected via wire to a

The plates on the platform were all different in size. The

was copper screen wire.
Some dirt was screened and 1/2 inch of dirt placed in each box.
seeds were selected, all of uniform size and planted in two rows of 5
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
there was no chlorophyll in the 10 plants in the control box. All of
boxes connected to outside plates had plants with much chlorophyll.
We were quite surprised to note that the plants in boxes with
outside plates seemed to look as if they had been subjected to heat.
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
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
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

substitution or change. And as to changes, if you are trying to get a
