"Paranormal Pictures"

Tom Bearden

The photograph on page 92 of Pursuit (Summer 1977) is a fairly easy paranormal phenomenon to obtain.

Briefly, one model of reality can be constructed whereby orthogonal worlds (3D spaces) all share the same 4th dimension, time, much like spokes of a wheel around an axle. In this model, all 3-spaces, three or more orthogonal turns away from the laboratory 3-space (i.e., from the observer’s spatial frame) are minds or mind-worlds. Each thought is an object in the mind-world of the thinker, in such a model. Further, all the 3-spaces crosstalk a tiny bit, usually so small a magnitude as to be virtual (unobservable even in theory). However, under certain amicable conditions, thought-forms or thought energies in such thought worlds can superpose sufficiently to breach the threshold between worlds. When progressively turning or rotating towards the laboratory frame a s a result of such super-position, the tulpoid energies/forms pass first into one frame away, which constitutes the ordinary electromagnetic field. In that frame they can affect ordinary photographic film, particularly film which is sensitive in the ultraviolet or infrared. In fact, if visible light is of low intensity or nonexistent, the effect is enhanced because visible light is a quenching of the paranormal channel.

Quite simply, the infrared and UV regions are essentially windows into other orthogonal 3-spaces and hence mindworlds. If the effect of visible light is lessened or eliminated, but these windows are left open, paranormal pictures are fairly simple to initiate.

Trevor Constable uses a Wratten 18A filter to accomplish this (See Psychic Observer #197).

In the picture shown, obviously the occasion was an emotional one, so emotional energy was present. It is probable that this energy provided the motivating force for the paranormal burst or discharge of energy.

Further, any type of ionization discharge/spark discharge/cascade discharge serves as a sort of collector for the tulpoidal energy to superimpose upon and emerge from. In this case, it is the candle flame, with millions of glowing, energetic, excited photon-emitting  molecules and atoms that it is acting as the cascade collector for the effect. In Kirlian photography, e.g., it is the spark discharge. Here the ordinary light is what is impressed on the film, but it is the rotating of higher fields into the EM field that forms and shapes the changes noted in the discharge pattern. Water also enhances the effect. A Geiger counter tube, e.g., contains a cascade discharge mechanism -- and Geiger counter readings are often obtained in association with paranormal phenomena. Here it is not actually radioactivity that is being read, but cascading electrons. The higher fields, when superimposing sufficiently to reach the first orthogonal flame, then start inducing or producing charge in conductive paths, hence cause bursts of electrons to start in the first stage of the Geiger tube, initiating the cascade discharge and the reading.

Note also that Fuji film seems to be a bit more sensitive to infrared and to uv than ordinary film.

So in the situation photo, it is probably a burst or discharge of orthorotated thought energy or emotional energy that emerges from the candle flame. Parallelism of the two lines from each pair shows the coherence (timewise) that is necessary to have such superposition of higher biofields and consequent threshold orthorotation of them into the ordinary UV window.

Finally, one other effect is important: the kindling or flashing effect, i.e., repetitive shots or snaps also pulses through the IR/UV windows and causes time oscillations a la Kozyrev. If the visible light quenching effect (dampening) of the persistent decay curve of each pulse is not too great, then the pulses build into resonance -- or bursts across the threshold through the UV/IR windows.

Bearden’s Hypothesis:

The quenching of the hyper-channel (the paranormal channel) by photon interaction (i.e., by light) is proportional to the spectral luminous efficiency.

A host of data fits this hypothesis.

It also explains the sensitivity of cats and other animals (whose eyes work further into the UV/IR portions of the spectrum than do the eyes of humans) to paranormal phenomena.

However, animals which compete in a sunlit world must also hold onto that quenching peak at the visible light peak at about 570 nanometers wavelength. Otherwise, they would become so preoccupied with the paranormal (tulpa) dither in/out that some other animal not so preoccupied would eat them. For the same reason, competition forces humans to do likewise.

The photon interaction -- which quenches the hyperchannel by differentiating and removing time -- creates objectively (L3, separated spatially), totally. And this is clearly shown by the most fundamental experiment of quantum mechanics, Young’s two-slit experiment.

And God said, "Let there be light!" -- and that was objective creation, the separation of the L3 spatial macroworld from the dimensionless, timeless, nothingness/allness voidless void.

We have only just begun to comprehend.

"Emanations Revealed by a New Photographic Process"

by Raymonde Guidot

In 1958 Mr Philip Chancellor of Cuernevaca, Mexico, visited the DeLaWarr Laboratories at Oxford in order to learn more of the work that they were doing and especially about the special type of camera used. I had been privileged to stay with Mr Chancellor and observe some of the interesting research he was doing in his lab in broadcast treatment. As a registered healer, or Magnisateur patente, residing in Pontarlier in the east of France, I was extremely interested in the radionic apparatus he was using and I was delighted to receive as a gift on my arrival in Cuernevaca a DeLaWarr Diagnostic Instrument. I was soon able to operate this apparatus and to take part in the research being done. Having been invited originally to stay in Mexico for one month, what was to have been a short visit of four weeks soon developed into a stay of 5 months. During this period I developed a technique of using the Diagnostic Apparatus and evolved a method of arriving at an accurate diagnosis based on the cosmic awareness of the patient that I will describe in a later article.

Whilst I was enjoying Mexican hospitality I was permitted to see some of the earlier photographic experiments conducted by Mr Chancellor. He explained to me that during his visit to the DeLaWarr Laboratories he was most impressed by the photographs obtained on the Mark I Camera and he was, at Mr DeLaWarr’s suggestion, trying to reproduce the process by using film instead of photographic plates. This was important if the Camera was to be universally used because photographic plates are virtually unobtainable in Mexico.

Using various emulsions and combination of developers Mr Chancellor succeeded in arriving at  a suitable combination that enabled him to produce significant energy patterns on photographic film. At first he found difficulty in stabilizing his results and obtaining consistent images but by persistent experimentation over a period of several months he finally arrived at the process as it stands today.

Whereas the DeLawarr method used Ilford Ordinary plates and the standard developer and fixer the Chancellor method used Kodak contrast process ortho film and developer D8 at full strength in combination with Kodak rapid fixer. Using this combination the patterns of the type seen in Figures 12 and 13 were produced. Experiments showed that the strength of these patterns was substantially increased when the stop bath was eliminated and the film placed directly into the fixing bath from the developer. The optimum developing time was 1-1/2 minutes and the fixing time was 2 minutes or more. After fixing the film it was washed and dried in the usual manner. It also became apparent that the temperature of the developer was not critical and that agitation of the film in the developer was unnecessary.

It became increasingly apparent that the patterns appeared to be abstractions and it subsequently became routing to decide on what was to be taken and to record it in a notebook prior to the exposure being taken. This action would thereby fix the request in the subconscious mind and the abstraction would be classified accordingly. The conscious effort of the operator during the time of the exposure would not appear to be as important as the pre-determined desire. Whether the resulting pattern is influenced by the mental or the emotional state of the operator has not yet been elucidated.

The Bath Process ~

Two techniques are being developed by Mr Chancellor, the bath Process and the Photographic Process. The former consists of inserting a piece of Kodak contrast process ortho film 6 cm square in a tray of D8 developer situated immediately in front of the operator having previously decided upon the request to be made mentally. After 1-1/2 minutes the film is removed from the developer and immediately placed in the fixing bath. It is there that the patterns appear and they can be observed by using the safe light.

The interesting feature about the process is that the photographs are obtained without the use of a camera and without exposure to light. It was found that there was no apparent effect on the photographs whether developed in total darkness or with the aid of safe light as would normally be used.  The process has been studied by qualified observers among whom was Dr Felix Saunders, formerly Prof, of Chemistry at the Univ. of Chicago and currently engaged in the study of photographic emulsions. In an attempt to define the process involved it has not been possible to exclude or to establish the possibility of artifact. It has been agreed, however, that the extreme variation in density of form and pattern obtained by a variety of persons at the same time and under the same conditions would indicate that the patterns tend to suggest an emanation of energy hitherto unrecognized.

The nature of the image and of the energy causing it has naturally been the subject of much attention and interest. Attempts to influence the pattern noticeably by various means, other than a chemical or any light process, such as blowing ammonia around the film, or introducing an electromagnetic field has not met with any success. However, when exposing the film in the DeLaWarr Camera a change in the image is evident.

[ Some of the Images described in the article; only a few are included here ]:

The Chancellor Photographic Process ~

The foregoing Bath Process when applied to a film exposed in the usual manner with a box camera produces photographs of an unusual character. All the Figures 14 to 26 were taken with a plate camera loaded with film; some of the objects were placed in front of a black backdrop. In these subsequent pictures no attempt was made to influence the pattern by a mental request. Fig. 14 shows a dress ring photographed against a backdrop and developed by the Chancellor technique. No explanation is attempted of what the pattern represents. Fig. 15 is also a Chancellor type photograph of a pre-Columbian figure. Fig. 16 is a photograph of a jar of pure Royal Jelly.

Moving to animate objects, Fig. 17 is a photograph taken out of doors in front of a backdrop. Figs. 18 and 19 are taken by flashlight. Fig. 19 is of a Yoga initiate and may possibly be showing the human aura of a person who is spiritually advanced. It has been "held back" a trifle in the developer in order to retain better definition of the emanation patterns. It is difficult to form conclusions concerning what the patterns represent. If they are artifacts due to using strong fixer then why are not more evenly distributed over the whole photograph?

Figs. 20 to 31 were taken out of doors in the grounds of the DeLaWarr Laboratories in accordance with normal photographic practice. Figs. 20 and 22 were taken of one of the several elm trees there. They were taken into the sun in order to obtain a dark background from the surface of the tree and were developed and fixed by the Chancellor Process.

Figs. 21 and 23 show immediate repeats of Figs. 20 and 22 but with Miss DeLaWarr in the foreground.

Fig. 24 is a Chancellor process photograph of one of the DeLaWarr Laboratory buildings using a box camera. Fig. 25 is a similar photograph taken the following day, also using a box camera. One hour later a control photograph was taken to show the view as it really was and this is seen in Fig. 26. Owing to a misunderstanding he used the same Chancellor process as in Fig. 25 but his object was to take a normal photograph.

I do not attempt to offer an explanation of these photographs apart from saying that the superimposed patterns appear in the fixing process. In my opinion the patterns and depth of image present variations that are capable of interpretation. A means of producing repeatable patterns is being sought and experiments are being undertaken to combine the Chancellor process with the DeLaWarr Camera. The initial photographs taken before I left Oxford showed considerable promise. Several persons were able to get an image in the Mark I Camera who had hitherto been unable to do so when using Ilford Ordinary Plates.

I would like to add that the Chancellor Process is being simultaneously investigated by research foundations at San Pedro and San Antonio, California.

In Retrospect (Part 5)

by George DeLaWarr

Early in 1954 an important experiment was carried out with the assistance of a nuclear physicist that should be recorded in this series of articles as it opens up a constructive line of thought. The story begins in 1953 when I approached Lord Glyn, a Member of Parliament of long standing, and asked him for help in obtaining a hearing with Sir John Cockcroft, one of Britain’s leading atomic physicists. We had taken some thousands of radionic photographs with our Mark I Camera and among them was a number of fairly good examples on which we wanted expert opinion. Those of the atomic lines (reproduced in Mind and Matter, December 1957) were especially interesting and we hoped they would find some concordance with current knowledge in atomic physics.

Lord Glyn approached Sir John Cockcroft who arranged for a chemist from the Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell to meet me. In due course Dr. A. Charlesby arrived and we showed him something of the work we were doing, finally demonstrating the Camera. Imagine our surprise when after developing our first photographic plate we found nothing on it. The image apparently would not appear when Dr Charlesby was in the room and we therefore had to ask him to wait outside while the photograph was being taken, a request that probably confirmed any suspicions he may have had. It is a simple matter of fact that we did not know then of the negative power of critical thought. We tried various methods of insulating Dr Charlesby and finally cut a peephole in the door of the Camera Room, so that he could observe our activities from outside. This was reasonably successful and the investigation then proceeded quite amicably.

The radiating lines in our photographs of atoms and molecules from a central well-defined point puzzled us. An example of this ‘central point feature’ is seen in Fig. 2 of Oxford tap water which would appear to show the radiation from the constituent atoms. I had a theory that these lines of energy were released in space from a tiny vortex at this central point according to the type of atom.

Fig. 2 tends to give this impression but possibly I am biased as I believe it is possible to materialize atoms. I expressed the opinion that even an atom could undergo an experience and that an atom of oxygen existing in a copper sulfate crystal was receiving a different experience from an oxygen atom in a silver nitrate crystal. Dr Charlesby was interested in this possibility and suggested that we might try giving atoms an experience and photographing them before and after the event.

The Polythene Experiment ~

Dr Charlesby had invented a process at Harwell whereby soft polythene could be toughened to a more useful product by putting it in the atomic pile. He suggested that we should therefore photograph a sample of soft polythene before and after it had this experience. Fig. 3 was therefore taken on our Mark I Camera showing the carbon and hydrogen lines of the polythene sample. We then had to determine which was the hydrogen line and so the photograph in Fig. 4 was taken on the tuning for hydrogen. The polythene was then taken to Harwell, subjected to intense atomic radiation and rephotographed as in Fig. 5. It will be noticed that the carbon line remained unaffected, whereas the hydrogen line had moved. This was most exciting and although it did not necessarily prove that my theory was correct, it had opened up a line of investigation.

An interesting feature of this experiment was the appearance of the two little lines at the center of the photo. We resolved to find out what they were and after various attempts we decided that they were connected with heavy hydrogen, deuterium. This was confirmed by a separate pot showing only the two little lines. The opposite directions of each line tend to confirm the presence of deuterium as its atomic arrangement consists of two atoms of hydrogen coupled together but pulling in opposite directions and the two opposing lines would certainly suggest this.

Dr Charlesby made another suggestion when we were discussing the nature of the lines of the image. He thought that we should use two photographic plates with their emulsion faces together. We did this and were successful in obtaining an image on each plate, one being the mirror image of the other (Fig. 6). This was most interesting as it suggested that actual particles had appeared between the plates and diverged away from each other in the same plane. Also around the central point at which I fondly hoped there was materialization taking place there was a ring. We often obtain this effect at the central point, but no satisfactory explanation has occurred to us yet unless there is possibly a process of polarization taking place.

Back to Normal ~

When Dr Charlesby was again able to visit the Laboratories further tests were given, but as these were probably based on an entirely erroneous concept of the phenomenon we were frequently "caught out" with images on the wrong plates. This was our swan song and once again we were working alone, suspect as usual; but we had progresses considerably. We had learnt that negative thought could affect the image; that the ability to obtain such images was in fact due to a personal ability possessed by my assistant in conjunction with the Camera; that atomic bombardment altered the image we obtained, and finally that we could expect no more assistance from Harwell.

I met Dr Charlesby again when I was addressing a society at Cambridge University. He was in the audience and very kindly stated that after having given the matter very considerable thought he could not formulate a scientific test of any kind in view of the nature of the phenomenon. He also said he was at least convinced of my integrity, and that was naturally a welcome statement.

"In Retrospect (Part 6)"

by George DeLaWarr

It is difficult for me to realize that ten years ago my wife, I and our Chief Assistnat were just entering the photographic side of this work. An accumulation of unexplained phenomena had softened us up over the previous nine years and confirmed our ignorance of what lies behind radionics. We had successfully completed the tests on our Colorscope treatment apparatus and demonstrated the therapeutic value of specific colors. This drew our attention to the possibility of detecting disease conditions by the use of light.

We had failed to get any response from the supposed radiations of a blood specimen in the electronic sense and we therefore proceeded to try in the photonic sense. If only we could get a start with a physical demonstration of some kind we felt that all would be well and that the medical profession would soon see the implications for humanity.

A Photographic Emulsion As A Detector ~

We accordingly bought some x-ray half plates from a local photographer and we set to work. From the very first plate we started getting strange patterns and particle tracks, and these not being what we expected I discounted them somewhat; but fortunately they are all still intact in our extensive filing system. In March 1959, w startled ourselves by placing a specimen of blood (on filter paper) in contact with the emulsion of a photographic plate for a half minute and obtaining an exposure on the pate, identical in pattern but slightly larger than the area of the blood spot, seen in Fig. 27.

This was a very satisfactory step in my opinion and my learned colleagues assured me that there was no known radiation that could have caused this picture and that nothing like it had ever been done before without radioactivity of some kind. My colleagues were in fact wrong because I have dug into some records, of the research carried out by Prof. Cremonese (now deceased) of Milan, who managed to obtain photographic impressions of samples of sputum in a similar manner. The work of Prof. Cremonese is virtually unknown, largely because no one else appeared to be able to reproduce the phenomenon, and also possibly because his images were not as clear as ours.

Our own experiment described above was repeated successfully 12 times in succession with very little difference in the images obtained and the rotational position of the specimen made no difference. Seven years later we attempted to repeat the experiment, using the Ilford Ordinary Plates that we have since accepted as standard in the mark I Camera technique, but we failed. This has worried us considerably but we are now inclined to believe that there is a specific response according to the type of emulsion used. The Chancellor Process tends to substantiate this.

Specific response of a blood specimen to radionic tuning was described in our September 1958 issue; it was then shown that the specimen of a person with tuberculosis would respond to the radionic tuning for tuberculosis but not, for instance, to the tuning for diabetes. This is not, however, necessarily the type of specific response I am referring to in connection with the emulsion. In the experiment seen in Fig. 27 no radionic tuning was used anyway and I have been reviewing our earlier experiments accordingly.

The most significant information already unearthed in this connection relates to the precise moment when we ran out of x-ray half plates and changed to another type of emulsion. It will be recalled that in the early experiments before lenses were added to the Camera (Fig. 28) the image of copper sulfate crystals on the plate of the treatment Instrument was found at Z.

This image is seen in Fig. 29. The lens was then added as in Fig. 28 and an exposure was taken at position 4 which is 9 inches from the lens. The image obtained in this position is seen in Fig. 30 and the slightly elongated copper sulfate crystal that we used on the apparatus below is beginning to come into focus.

It was at this moment that we realized we had no more x-ray half plates to spare and as they could only be obtained by having them specially made we suspended the experiment and resumed work on the blood specimens. We did return to the copper sulfate experiment, however, some time later but we had to use Ilford ordinary quarter plates. The first image we obtained was that reproduced in Fig. 31. This so delighted us that we went on to take many more thrilling variations but completely overlooking the possible significance of the difference in the two emulsions used.

If there is indeed specific response by an emulsion to the radionic principle we have taken a big step in understanding the 12,000 photos we have taken on Ilford Ordinary Plates. The next thing is to find out more about this principle and whether it is the operator’s presence, his thought, the radionic apparatus or a combination of all three that induces the specific response in the emulsion. A review of the evidence we have accumulated is long overdue and this series of articles is serving a useful purpose in revealing much that has been overlooked.

The Elusive Image ~

When discussing the constructional details recently of a new Mark I Camera for Mr Chancellor in order that he may continue his research in Mexico I recalled our earlier difficulties in the design of the camera head. The Mark I Camera head is the light tight box approximately 11" x 9" x 8" containing the reflector, lenses and photographic plate holder. It is the box seen in Fig. 32 on the four supports. In 1956 Mr A. Broad of the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge agreed to have a two-beam Mark I Camera at his home so that he could do some research on the processes involved. The two-beam Camera seemed to work as well as the three-beam and it was therefore agreed that an improved design should be followed.

In 1955 when Dr Charlesby came from the Harwell Atomic Research Organization to test the Camera we found that each component part should have a critical position to suit the operator’s individual field. This was our first intimation that the physical presence of the operator was essential in order to obtain a photo. After nearly three months’ work we made an improved type of Camera with all the components adjustable. It was rather an expensive undertaking and we had to increase the size of the camera head to accommodate the required variation in the different people we tried. Twelve people in all were tried, including Mr Broad and our staff doctor.

It so happened that when the enlarged camera head was adjusted to suit Mr Broad it was so low that the blood specimen sat on the top of the lower box could not be rotated by hand and so the two bottom corners of the camera head were splayed back to allow room for the hand. Altogether it looked a very attractive piece of apparatus in mahogany and chromium as it was taken off to Cambridge by my assistant. On arrival it was placed in the correct magnetic N-S position and tested out but no image could be obtained. Fortunately our own original Camera had been taken along in case the difference in latitude between Oxford and Cambridge made any difference to the results. We were relieved to find that our own Camera still worked but Mr Broad’s simply would not function and we had to bring it back to Oxford.

It was all very disturbing. We then tried to find the trouble by a process of elimination and discovered that it was in the design of the camera head. As soon as we replaced the two corners we had splayed off and restored the rectangular shape the elusive image returned. The Camera was then taken to Cambridge again and order was restored. Mr Broad and my assistant were able to proceed with their research and produced very good photos under test conditions.

I well remember how anxious we all were to get the phenomenon demonstrated to the University pundits and so we decided to invite Prof. Stratton who held the Chair of Para-Psychology and who was a very pleasant person. We met for lunch and then drove to Mr Broad’s house. A test image had been taken before lunch, so we knew the Camera would work. The new packet of sealed plates was produced and one plate was placed in the Camera. This was our big moment when a perfect image would start a chain reaction among the Universities. The dripping plate was produced, but it was completely black and there was no image. Each subsequent plate was black; altogether it was a black day. Prof. Stratton then explained that he had never been privileged to witness any psychic phenomena because the moment he appeared on the scene all phenomena ceased. We were all desolated, the Professor departed and the Universities were left in peace. I may add that the Camera showed signs of indisposition for several days afterwards.

These are interesting sidelights and show how little we understood the phenomenon. The negating power of the "30 percent", that is to say, those who cannot work the Diagnostic Instruments, or get plants to increase their growth for them, or who cannot heal the sick by radionics, is a very real stumbling block to the fulfillment of our purpose.

"Project #2: Resume Work on the Delawarr Camera"

The discovery made at the Laboratories in 1950 that extra-dimensional photos could be obtained may well prove to be the greatest achievement of the century, ranking in importance with the achievements of space travel.

The use of thought energy to probe the various parts of the human force field and "bring back" information on a photographic emulsion is a most significant event. Coupled with this is the closely allied phenomenon of Thoughtography, or implanting thought forms on a photographic emulsion. Many cases are on record but the most thorough and spectacular are those recorded by Prof. Fukurai about 1910. Fig. 2 shows one of a series of thought photographs arranged by him using the special ability of a Mr Konichi Mita to produce them.

Prof. Fukurai organized a series of tests on either photographic papers or plates after they had been placed in a suitably sealed casket. The characters to be impressed on the emulsion were chosen by a clairvoyant who was allowed to work at a distance from the casket but at no time to touch it or the contents. The authenticity of each experiment was attested by a full scrutinizing Committee of prominent people.

Dr Jule Eisenbud of Denver, Colorado, has recently published a book called "The World of Ted Serios". Mr Serios can produce thought images on a photographic emulsion but not with certainty. After two years of well-controlled experiments, over 20 doctors of science, medicine, physics and psychology attested to the validity of the experiments in which they took part. The score of successful shots was approximately 20 percent.

In 1950, at the Delawarr Laboratories, with the aid of Mr L. Corte, a series of photographs was taken, using apparatus containing a magnet and lenses to ensure repeatability. The images obtained were of an extra-dimensional character and over 10,000 exposures were taken during 9 years work. The score of successful shots was 90 percent and Fig. 3 is an example of a thought photograph produced on the Delawarr Camera.

A technique of using a state of magnetic rapport between a distant person and the camera operator was developed. Such an advanced technique is unknown to science but may well be understood in the field of ESP. Fig. 4 shows the effect of tuning the apparatus in to a distant person for Ulceration of the Duodenum. It transpired that the person had recently had an operation on the duodenum and the stitches had become septic.

Hundreds of similar exposures have been taken over the past 17 years and may be inspected at the Laboratories. All work on the Camera was slowed down in 1960 for financial reasons and it is important that work should be resumed while Mr Corte is still able to produce the phenomenon and also in order to find other potential operators. It may also be possible to provide a service for probing disease problems in humans, animals and plants from an entirely new aspect.

British Patent # 515,866

"Method and Apparatus for Obtaining Photographic Images of Living and Other Objects"

Ruth Drown

(December 15, 1939)

The present invention relates to a method of and means for obtaining photographic images of parts of the human body or of other objects. One object of my invention is to enable accurate photographs of healthy and diseased parts of living bodies somewhat similar to x-ray photography to be obtained in simple and easily applied manner. Another object is to provide a compact, portable apparatus for obtaining photographic images according to the invention.

It is believed that the action obtained by my present method consists in activating the flow of electrons of the unidirectional flow of current from the battery or other equivalent source and the radiant energy of the body being examined.

In pursuance of the foregoing and according to my present invention a method of obtaining photographic images of living and other objects and more particularly human beings consists in subjecting a highly sensitized photographic plate or film to an electromotive force so as to produce a field thereon and providing means susceptible to the influence of invisible energy rays or electrons of the atoms of the object to be photographed to produce a change in voltage drop across an electrical circuit to correspondingly influence said field.

The apparatus for carrying out the invention does comprise a light-sensitive cell, a uni-directional source of current connected at the negative side of the cathode of the light-sensitive cell and at the positive side to the anode of the cell. A series of impedance rheostats connected so as to have a condenser action and connected in parallel with the cell and the source of energy, a rectifier, and a photographing device comprising the opposed plates of a fixed condenser between which film or plate is located, said rheostats being connected across one of the plates of the condenser and the cell plates, and the other plate of the condenser being connected to the filtered negative side of the said source.

In carrying an embodiment of my invention into practice it should be understood that the latent image is carried to the sensitized surface by means of a magnetic field having certain lines of force and the thickness or width of the field, i.e., transverse to the shortest distance between the negative and positive points, can vary from 1/32 of an inch to an inch. This field, when applied across a sensitized surface, spreads or is trapped to the plane of such surface and by action of a suitable developer the image of the field can be printed. Consequently, if the potential of the applied force is varied by using the electronic or light ray influence of the object to be photographed to affect the photo-electric cell included in the circuit of the apparatus, the lines of force will be correspondingly varied on the plate.

In practice the subject to be photographed is placed close to the photo-electric cell and it is found that the radiant energy of the subject impinges on the cathode of the tube resulting in an increasingly higher resistance placed across the cell. Such increase will cause an exceedingly minute change of the current in the anode circuit, in turn producing a change in the voltage drop across the circuit, such voltage drop or change in potential being led through the selecting or tuning section constituted by the rheostat. That is to say a photoelectric cell is used to isolate a particular section to be photographed and in doing so it pictures changes in electromotive force in an electrical circuit, such changes of the electromotive force being utilized to excite the circuit producing a field across a highly sensitized emulsion surface, the resulting distortion or change of the lines of force across said surface producing an image which can be developed chemically. Suitable apparatus for achieving this result is illustrated by the appended sheets of drawings wherein:--

Figure 1 is a diagrammatic view of a complete circuit.

Figure 2 is a sectional side elevation view of a portable casing accommodating the cell, rheostat or tuning device, photographic plate holder and circuit wiring.

Figure 3 is a detail sectional plan view showing one of the adjustable tuning devices, a number of which are suitably connected in the circuit as shown diagrammatically in Figure 1, and assembled on a panel in the portable casing as shown in font and broken rear elevations in Figure 4, and Figure 5 respectively.

Referring to the drawings a source of direct or unidirectional current 1 is connected by its negative filter 4 which can consist of coils of insulated wire or solenoids wound on both iron cores and air cores and in series. The source of potential may be a battery carried in the portable casing 5 so that the apparatus can be self-contained and available for use anywhere. The positive side of the source 1 is connected to the anode of the cell 3.  Connected across the anode and a rectifier 7 is one, or preferably as shown, a plurality of series-coupled impedance rheostats 8 which are constructed to act as condensers, the rectifier 7 being in turn connected to the filtered negative side of the source 1 so that the rheostats are in parallel with the circuit of the battery and cell. This rectifier may be a quartz-crystal type, a vacuum tube rectifier, a rectifier of the oxide type or a chemical rectifier. A pair of large surface area (in relation to their thickness) conducting plates 9 and 10 are located in narrowly spaced relationship, e.g., after the manner of a fixed condenser and are connected in parallel with a rectifier. This condenser device forms in effect a photographing device because between them is interposed a highly sensitized plate or film.

With the source of the potential connected as shown there will always be a difference of potential  between the cathode and anode of the cell, the anode being positive to the cathode by reason of the applied direction of polarity of the source of potential.

In practice the object to be examined is placed close to the surface of the cathode so that the invisible light rays or radiation will always be a difference of potential between the cathode and anode of the cell, the anode being positive to the cathode by reason of the applied direction of polarity of the source of potential.

In practice the object to be examined is placed close to the surface of the cathode so that the invisible light rays or radiation will impinge upon the cathode resulting in negative electrons being emitted from the cathode. This places a negative potential on the anode and an increased resistance is placed across the cell resulting in an exceedingly minute change of current in the anode circuit. Because of this change in current there will be a voltage drop across the circuit which is led through the selecting or tuning section constituted by the rheostats.

The changes in dielectric stress of the condenser-like arrangement of plates 9 and 10 caused by the changes of potential applied to the plates 9 and 10, produces corresponding changes in the field which is contained in the sensitized surface of the photographic plate or film. This field is in the nature of a magnetic field with appropriate line sof force depending upon the particular settings of the tuning device constituted by the impedance rheostats 8. As the tuned-in electromotive force which produces the field is varies or regulated by the energy derived from the nervous system or organism of the living object being photographed, the field is varied accordingly.

The tuning device can comprise any suitable number of rheostats connected in series as shown in Fig. 1 to afford a wide variety of adjustment. Each rheostat comprises a plurality of conductor studs 14 arranged in an arcuate path about a center conductor pivot pin 15 from which radiates a contact 16engaging the studs singly. Each stud is lined with an insulating sleeve 17 about which is wound a wire 18 so that there is a capacity between the wire and the conductor stud 14. The windings 18 are in series for each rheostat, and the conductor pivot pin 15 of each rheostat is connected to the first winding of the next rheostat in succession as shown in Fig. 1. Such an arrangement affords a wide range of fine tuning, the impedance formed in the circuit being determined by the number of windings selected.

The rheostats can be mounted on a panel 19 fixed in the portable casing 5. A switch 20 for making and breaking the circuit of the battery can be provided on this panel, and the photo-electric cell 3 can be plugged into a socket 21 on the base of the casing between the panel 19 and a partition 22 separating a compartment 23 containing the condenser plates 9 and 10. Immediately above the space between these two plates is a narrow lid 24 adapted to light seal the compartment 23, and to be opened for insertion and removal of a mount containing the photographic plate or film.

"Electromagnetic Radionic Camera"

James B. Bage

This invention relates to a method of obtaining photographic images of healthy and diseased parts of the human body, animals, birds, insects, trees, bushes, flowers, plants, seeds, psychic phenomena, and other inanimate objects.

The camera can be housed in its entirety in a case measuring 33 cm x 49 cm x 14 cm, making it a completely portable unit. According to the present invention, the camera functions through the medium of harnessing the energy rays emitted from a donor Body, from which the sample has been taken, and subjecting the electrical circuit of this invention to this emitted energy from the donor Body, which is then led through a tuning device consisting of multi variable potentiometers or impedance rheostats, to the conducting plates, between which the film or photographic paper has been placed.

A specific embodiment of the invention will now be described by way of example with reference to the accompanying drawing in which Figure 1 shows a diagrammatic plan of the complete circuit together with the conductor plates.

The requirements necessary to implement functioning of the EM Radionic Camera to produce photographic images are:

(1) Electrical source of power. Can be a battery or mains electricity
(2) On/Off switch of the simple make and break type.
(3) Timer.
(4) Amplifier.
(5) Infrared sensor
(6) Potentiometers. These can be of the multi selective type with single specific values counting from 0 to 10. Where more than one of this type of potentiometer is used, they must be wired or connected in series.
(7) Filters. These can consist of coils of insulated wire. Solenoids wound on both iron and air cores in series.
(8) Positive conductor plate. Can be made of copper, silver or any suitable conducting material.
(9) Negative conducting plate. Materials as (8).

The required photographic paper, or film, and the donor Body sample required in order to take a photographic image, are not shown in Diagram 1.

The positive side of the circuit is wired from the positive terminal of the power source (1) in Diagram 1 to the on/off switch (2) to the timer (3) to the amplifier (4) to the infrared sensor (5) to the potentiometers (6) to the positive conducting plate (8).

The Negative side of the circuit is wired from the negative terminal of the power source (1) to the amplifier (4) to the filters (7) to the negative conducting palte (9).

Infrared Sensor ~

The IR sensor acts as a shutter of the camera and is affected b\through the introduction of the donor Body sample to the proximity of the IR sensor, that is to say, that the sensor is used to isolate a selected area to be photographed, and in so doing, produces changes in the electromotive force in the electrical circuit. These changes of force are utilized to excite the circuit, producing an electromagnetic field, which isled through the potentiometers, resulting in distortion or change of of the lines of force that spread across the emulsion face of the film or photographic paper, producing a photographic image that can be chemically developed.

The Amplifier ~

The amplifier is required to amplify the energy introduced into the circuit via the sample from the donor Body.

The Potentiometers ~

The potentiometers are connected in series so as to produce a condenser action. They are  multi adjustable, each one being able to be set from 0 to 10. They do in fact act as a tuning device. The potentiometers are positioned between the power source (1) and the positive conducting plate (8).

Negative and Positive Conducting Plates ~

The negative conducting plate (9) and the positive conducting plate (8) act as a photographic device, in effect as fixed condensers. They can be spaced between 8mm and 25 mm apart, between which the film or photographic paper is placed.

The invention relates to a method of obtaining photographic images as previously described. The action consists in subjecting a photographic plate, film, or photographic paper to an electromotive force so as to produce an EM field which provides a means susceptible to the energy rays or electrons of the atoms of the object or area to be photographed.

To produce a change in voltage drop across an electrical circuit to correspondingly influence the aforementioned EM field, via a sample from the donor Body, this sample can be of blood, hair, sputum, handwriting, etc., or any part of the subject or subject matter to be photographed. When the sample from the donor Body is presented to the IR sensor, the energy transmitted from the donor Body to the sample produces sufficient energy to effect a change in the circuit by way of a minute voltage drop, this in turn is led through the tuning potentiometers and influences the said EM field by reason of the applied direction of polarity of the source of the potential.

Description ~

The camera functions through the medium of harnessing the energy rays emitted by the donor Body via a sample from the donor Body. This sample can be of a blood spot, hair, sputum, handwriting, or any part of the donor Body. In practice, a sample from the donor Body is placed close to the surface of the IR sensor (5) so that the energy rays or radiations will impinge upon the cathode of the IR sensor (5), resulting in negative electrons being emitted from the cathode. This in turn places a negative potential on the anode circuit, resulting in an increased resistance being placed across the IR sensor, resulting in a minute change of current in the anode circuit.

Due to this change in current, there will be a voltage drop across the circuit. This voltage drop is led through the potentiometers (6) which are used as the selection or tuning device. The tuning is effected by setting the energy pattern of the area to be photographed numerically on the potentiometers (6).

The change in dielectric stress of the condenser-like arrangement of conducting plates (8) and (9) caused by the change of potential applied to the conducting plates (8) and (9) produces corresponding changes in the EM field which is contained in the emulsion face of the photographic paper or film. This field is in the nature of an EM field with appropriate lines of force, depending upon the particular setting, set numerically on the potentiometers or tuning device (6).

As the tuned EM force which produces the field is varied or regulated by the energy derived from the nervous system or organism of the donor Body being photographed, the EM field is varied accordingly.

The tuning device can be comprised of any suitable number of potentiometers (6) connected in series to afford a wide range of selection. The potentiometers are capable of tuning on a scale of 0 to 10.

In order to be able to take a photograph, you have to dial in the energy pattern of the area to be photographed on the potentiometers (6). For example, if we wished to photograph "Cancer of the Spine" that the donor Body is suffering from, we would dial in number 5 on the first potentiometer, 0 on the second, 2 on the third, 4 on the fourth, 2 on the fifth, 7 on the sixth, 9 on the seventh potentiometer. This is the energy pattern of Cancer of the Spine expressed numerically, as 5024279.

The camera is now set to photograph Cancer of the Spine. Using the sample from our donor Body to act as a catalyst we trigger the action needed to effect the photograph.

In fact, what happens is that the donor Body is in tune with the sample taken from it, and that energy is passing between the donor Body and the sample in a continuous stream. Time and distance are irrelevant.

When the sample is presented to the IR sensor (5), energy generated by the donor Body flows through the sample in sufficient strength to effect negative electrons being emitted from the cathode of the IR sensor (5). This in turn places a negative potential on the anode of the IR sensor (5), resulting in an increased resistance being placed across the IR sensor, which in turn results in a minute change of current in the anode circuit.

Due to this change in current, a voltage drop is effected. This voltage drop is led through the potentiometers (6) on which we had set our energy pattern for Cancer of the Spine, expressed numerically as 5023279. The energy pattern being carried on this EM field flows on to, and becomes trapped in the emulsion face of the film or photographic paper. Developing the film results in a picture of Cancer of the Spine, that the donor Body is suffering from, and from which can only be obtained by use of the donor Body sample.

The camera will produce the same photograph effect when a numerically expressed energy pattern is selected on the Potentiometers (6) and the same donor Body sample is used. No other criteria is required to obtain repetitive results.
