The Etheric Formative Forces, Energy Relationships and Conscious Evolution

Guenther Wachsmuth, Erwin E. Stark and  L. E. Eeman have assembled this evening for the September newsletter. 

I don’t know if it is just because I had to really concentrate to read the Wachsmuth section but I think all three sources speak pretty clearly without much need for narration.

Before we get into some really interesting materials on Etheric Formative Forces from these guys I want to take a second…

I know everyone is having a hard time with high gas and food prices and the need for rare print material from the 20th Century is not as high on your list as it has been in the past. 

We really need your extra support now more than ever. 

Summertime is generally when we make the revenue that balances out the overhead created during the slow times of the year but it is like we do not exist on the search engine and that everyone has stopped talking about their primary source materials from Borderland Sciences. If you are in a position to give any support at this time it will help carry us into the last part of the year. 

The information we have published for over 77 years is generally now available on the internet, even most of our primary research. I think there is still some real long term value in maintaining our active Print Catalog Archive. There is something uncanny in the way it holds the different information together and suggests the interconnections. 

The catalog together with the journal comprises a living history of the evolution of thought that brings us here today. The print material maintains an intellectually pristine quality somehow because of the crappy xerox quality from a bygone era that maintains the font types and odd print elements of the 20th century. 

This is not AI generated propaganda meant to throw you off the path! These are genuine primary source kooks trying to show the path they found!

If the formative forces are right with you we really can put it to use to stabilize this information flow that has shed light since 1945.

Together we can water the living roots of this tree of knowledge. 

We can keep the lamp aflame in the darkness. Your lamp oil has never meant more to the future who will find and read your old print materials with wonder.

Thanks, I am glad you stayed for the show…

The Etheric Organism of the Earth and Man: Excerpt Part 1

Guenther Wachsmuth

We perceive that man does not simply possess a physical body of dead substance, but is penetrated and woven through by forces which build up his physical body and which also make him a member in that great rhythmic life process of the earth organism; that the life phenomena in the kingdom of Nature present themselves to us as a picture of the restless activity of the most manifold forces, the external metamorphosis of that “which has been, is, and ever shall be.”

We perceive that man does not simply possess a physical body of dead substance, but is penetrated and woven through by forces which build up his physical body and which also make him a member in that great rhythmic life process of the earth organism; that the life phenomena in the kingdom of Nature present themselves to us as a picture of the restless activity of the most manifold forces, the external metamorphosis of that “which has been, is, and ever shall be.”

Very few persons grasp the fact that in a relatively short space of time, in a rhythm of about seven years, most of the substance which now compose the bodies will have ceased to belong to those bodies; that the substances will then be scattered in the life processes of the other kingdoms of Nature, to be replaced in turn by new substances. 

And yet this body, eternally transmuted in its components, keeps as a whole its form, the human form, and still is held together as a unity by a structure of forces which place this entity of materials and forces before us as the form of an individual man just in the way we perceive it. 

That which renders possible the life phenomena in man, in that it keeps the substance in eternal metamorphosis, it is these etheric forces that interpenetrate and interweave the physical body.

We have already shown by many examples that he who would understand the action of forces on the basis of a concept of “electrons,” as the quantitative-mechanical world conception has framed this, will never reach the goal sought by this understanding.

Indeed, we must now arrive at a conclusion which, following after the mechanistic conception of the world – a conception, too, that often manifests itself in currents of thought where we ourselves are quite unaware of it – will give rise to the strong opposition on the part of materialistic and mechanistic thinkers of the present age.

And yet what here follows is not only a reality open to research but also the necessity conclusion resulting from a logically exact and consecutive course of reasoning which does not hesitate courageously to throw overboard habits of thought that have grown to be dear and comforting – especially if such habits of thought bring one to the “limitations of the knowledge of Nature.”

Energy and Healing

The cells are responsible for rebuilding injured or diseased areas of the body. They seem able to do this more quickly when the electromagnetic field that surrounds the body is complete. An unhealthy body or a body that is not at ease is almost always found to be unbalanced by energy leaks. The energy matrix, or mold, as Dr. Harold Burr describes it, is the pattern of the living body. Humans, animals, trees, and all other living things exist within this mold.

Recent experiments have shown that cellular structures which have been damaged mend faster in the presence of low voltage electrical currents. This is not a surprise to dowers, some of whom have long known how to use the body’s polarities to hasten recovery and healing.

Excerpt from A History of Dowsing and Energy Relationships by Erwin E. Stark

Conscious Evolution

We may conclude: health is the effect of the ever more conscious enjoyment of our faculties and exercise of all our functions, in ever more perfect harmony with the laws of life, ever better understood and more faithfully applied.

It is a constantly evolving factor in the development of the instrument of consciousness of the infinite life, man, and unless man has more life to-day than he had yesterday, he is not in health, however healthy he may think himself.

Regarding life itself we can say nothing in positive terms. All we know is: ‘Here life is apparent to us, here it is not.’

The most careful observation of its processes only equips us with negative knowledge, but though negative, this at least enables us to state that certain facts are common to all life’s manifestations, and that in the absence of any of them it does not manifest, to us.

Everyone of life’s manifestations involves material activity subject to law, but we must note that the converse is not true, to us: all material activities subject to law do not appear to us as manifestations of life, whether they be or not.

Material activity subject to law; things, work, order; matter, energy, thought; the echo to the infinite substance, energy and intelligence involved in us.

The Etheric Organism of the Earth and Man:  Excerpt Part 2

The world conception of this materialistic age is anthropocentric just where it should not be and is not anthropocentric just where it should be. (italics)

A form of observation of the first category is the view that has been formed regarding the connection of consciousness with cosmic processes. 

This materialistic age has taken up its position on the point of view that phenomena of consciousness are linked up with manifestations of force and processes of life and motion only in the human and animal organisms, and this solely on the ground that we do not yet possess any adequate knowledge of phenomena of consciousness associated with the manifestations of force and processes of life and motion in the happenings in the rest of the cosmos.

…those who should maintain the existence of a reciprocal relation of any sort whatever between phenomenon in the phenomenal world, on the one hand, and states of consciousness on the other, or who should wish to include such a thing within the field of their research, would be journalistically and rhetorically burnt at the stake as heretics in science, sinners against scientific dogmas, just as Galileo and others were threatened.

Especially would this be true of any one who should assert the concrete existence and action of beings possessed of a higher state of consciousness than the objective consciousness of the men of our age.

Are there methods scientifically exact whereby we may come to know and to investigate states of consciousness which are of a different sort – whether higher or lower – from the really narrow limited objective consciousness of the men of our age? 

We have seen that the living earth organism shows an etheric system of forces in which processes of breathing and circulation take place corresponding to similar life processes in the human organism, and in a reciprocal relationship with these life processes in Man and Cosmos, as expressed in the figures 25920, etc.( p.49.)

As in the case of the human organism, so also in that of the living earth organism, is the “ether body” which calls the phenomena of life into existence and which regulates and metamorphoses them.

The cosmos grasped as a world-organism, the product of active spiritual entities, as a world of organisms whose vital phenomena are the work of the harmonious metamorphosis of etheric formative forces – not of dead mechanical vibrations – this is a world concept wherein the living, thinking man with his conscious acts of will, with his ether body kept in rhythm and in motion by the etheric formative forces, and his material body in constant flux up to the very moment of death, finds also his interpretation and meaning.

Before the young generation of the future, rejoicing in research and bold in understanding, there open up here perspectives which alone can help us past the general sense of resignation of science in the decadence of this materialistic-mechanical age.

Ruth Drown Theory

“Does Ruth Drown’s Cancer Theory Hold Up in the 21st Century ?”

Ruth Drown’s Cancer Theory is stated thus:

“Not enough Life Force to a part of the body causes congestion of electrons which forms a tumor.”

The Drown Radio Vision, Part C, Page 84. Journal of Borderland Research. Sept-Oct 1951 

A google search on the terms “congestion of electrons which forms a tumor” produced the following to articles from which we will draw our comparison and speculation:

Oxygen plays a key role in accepting free

electrons at the end of oxidative phosphorylation

that produces the energy molecule, adenosine

triphosphate (ATP), forming water. This prevents

congestion of electrons in the associated electron

chain complexes (I to V) on the inner mitochondrial

membrane. However, in some instances when

oxygen is reduced it can be converted to

superoxide, rather than water. Superoxide will then

be converted to hydrogen peroxide that is secreted

into the cell leading to damage.

In 1957, Peter Siekevitz branded the mitochondrion the “powerhouse” of the cell [1]. Less than a decade later came the first reports that the organelle generated reactive oxygen species (ROS) as a byproduct of cellular respiration [2]. Since then, it has become apparent that mitochondria are highly dynamic organelles that contribute to cellular homeostasis not only through maintaining adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels, but also through the generation of low levels of ROS for cell signaling, and that dysfunction in either of these processes can propagate pathology. 

Despite this variation between cell types, mitochondrial ATP generation and ROS production are intimately linked through function of the electron transport chain (ETC), and thus efficient measurement of ETC function can provide insight into mechanisms of physiology and disease pathogenesis.

Mitochondrial electron transport chain: Oxidative phosphorylation, oxidant production, and methods of measurement

Deirdre Nolfi-Donegan,a,b,1 Andrea Braganza,a,1 and Sruti Shivaa,c,∗

One of the biggest challenges with researching Borderland Sciences is that there can be so much information to evaluate that one becomes overwhelmed.

I find medical Radionics to be the most frustrating. I don’t feel confident that I have a reasonable grasp of the mainstream 21st century medical language, much less language that reflects advanced intuitive thinking of the early 20th century.

I feel sorry for the healers because they are among the most hated people by the system. Ruth Drown would be in prison again in the 21st century. I find it almost unfortunate that Radionics is associated with disease. Far more interesting to me is what it teaches us about the true nature of our body-mind complex and how it reveals a living dynamic energetic universe that is used as much for evolution as it is for healing the sick.

This makes these medical speculations less fun but we are confident that the synchronicity is goaded by Dr. Ruth Drown so we slog forward. I really don’t know how I expect you to read this, I just hope you are particularly bored and particularly interested in Radionics.

So for grins and giggles I googled the language Ruth Drown used in Part C of Radio-Vision: “congestion of electrons which forms a tumor”

I was skeptical that I would find any “Congestion of electrons” but indeed it was associated with the oxygen function of mitochondrial membrane.

I was interested to learn that Oxygen played  a key role in accepting free

electrons at the end of oxidative phosphorylation that produces the energy molecule, (ATP), forming water which prevented “congestion of electrons” in the associated electron chain complexes on the inner mitochondrial

membrane.  And that the mitochondria are  the “powerhouse” of the cell and that efficient measurement of ETC function can provide insight into mechanisms of physiology and disease pathogenesis. 

When we look at Ruth Drown’s Cancer Theory that “Not enough Life Force to a part of the body causes congestion of electrons” we can ask the question:

Is Drown describing the role of the Oxygen in accepting free electrons when she refers to Life Force?

Because Oxygen and Life Force have a very interesting relationship, namely the traditional observation that Prana is said to reside in the breath, can we say the Life Force resides with Oxygen in a similar way?

Prana is also described with electric-like properties of polarity. 

What role does Prana or Life Force have to do with oxidative phosphorylation of the associated electron chain complexes on the inner mitochondrial Membrane?

We can speculate that Oxygen fully charged with Vital Force will cause the cells to “accept the free electrons” and thus produce the maximum vitality. 

If there is a depletion in Vital Force the oxygen will not accept the free electrons and the disabled ETC function creates disease pathogenesis and cell damage, that no doubt result in “tumors”.

We can intuit that the Drown’s Radionic technique allowed the Life Force to equilibrate any imbalance in the associated electron chain complexes on the inner mitochondrial Membrane of the disease site?

What role does Life Force or Prana, as understood by the breath, play in a galvanic circuit grounded to the earth?

We can speculate that the galvanic circuit has the ability, like the Prana on breath, to carry along a charge of vital force necessary to assist the oxygen accepting the free electron near the mitochondrial membrane, thus increasing vitality.  

I probably am using the language wrong but I think we have been able to find that Ruth Drown’s basic observation and intuition about the “Congestion of electrons” is a valid observation in the 21st century if we are willing to see open ourselves to the role Life Force plays in the electric function of oxygen.

In working up the newsletter I am using a set of Drown books that have been in a storage box.

I find that this copy of Theory and Technique of the Drown HVR has a copy of The Hendershot Mystery accidentally bound with it.

I am sure that this makes this YOUR copy, meant just for YOU…so I will put this up on the eBay so you can acquire it.

I think this excerpt of The Hendershot Mystery ties in best to the discussion at hand.

For those interested in my Father’s analysis of how this generator worked, the following are his theories on the subject.

“The field of magnetism surrounding the earth is similar to the field of magnetism in a man made generator.”

“The rotor of a generator is revolved by some means of power, cutting the lines of magnetism, creating electric power. The earth is turning inside of a field of magnetism. That, no one contradicts, yet it is claimed there is no power to be derived from it.”

“Let’s say we have a mechanism that will collect, polarize and create a positive and negative connection to this tremendous power that is ever-present on the earth.”

“As long as the earth rotates around the sun, it will create electric power which some scientists claim does not exist. Yet, we dig into the mountain for material that costs unbelievable sums, to create the same power.”

“Magnetism must be cut. The lines of force circling the earth are constant and if this force is broken up, and polarized, you have the equivalent of uranium broken up, which creates heat and power.”

“A very small unit comprised of wire, a magnet, several special designed coils, condensers, collector units, and a few other minor items, will cut this force. Another especially designed mechanism will polarize it, giving it a positive and a negative connection to any resistance and the result is the generation of electricity.”

Two excerpts that do not require explanation but fit in with the sort of context with the questions raised…

The Theory and Technique of the Drown H.V.R. and Radio-Vision Instruments

By Ruth Drown,1939
  Chapter VI  Radio-Vision and its Theory

“In the Drown Method we attempt to improve the tie between the material and the so-called unseen Energy which animates all life. It has been difficult for the average physician to recognize this vital Life Force which flows through everything in the Universe, giving to it its own rate of vibration. If that rate of vibration changes, the substance changes, the substance, hitherto regarded as a certain type of element, ceases to be that type and becomes something else without ceasing to be a substance.”

“This invisible line is therefore the Life Force of the body. It also takes the form of liquid and gases when the electron flow is speeded up fast enough to produce heat.. When the body ceases to be animated by this Life Force–in other words, when death comes–we cannot tune into it with our instruments. The Life Force, or “radio beams” has been withdrawn.”

Chapter VIII Questions and Answers

Q. Dr. H., Texas. How does the H.V.R. treat the patient?

A.– The blood and nerves carry electro-magnetic energy. During treatment on the H.V.R.Instrument the foot-plates act as the cathode, and the electrode on the body acts as the anode. The energy carries the radio-active rate of vibration to the organs, glands and tissues of the body in a way similar to that in which the electrical equipped radio carries the voice or sound. Thus we have the direct energy passing through the instrument and back through the patient, conducting the rate of vibration as designated by the instrument. All energy returns to its source.

Q. – Dr. Y., California. What do you think forms a tumor in the body?

A.– All these conditions seem to be a matter of conjecture and theory. It is our theory that the anabolic function of the body is the positive energy belonging to the nucleus of the nerve cells, and thence over the nerves to the various organs and tissues of the body. The catabolic energy passes through the nerve as the bloodstream. Any impingement of the catabolic function would inhibit the natural flow of the bloodstream through the nerve to the tissue supported by this nerve. There would thus be a lack of balance between the  catabolic and anabolic functions. However, the anabolic function would continue in a true, steady manner, but the impingement of the catabolic function would inhibit the carrying away of old cells. Therefore we would have a new cell built in on the old cell, producing an abnormal condition or growth.

To me so much more important for the Borderland Scientist is the far reaching implications of personal development rather than the sort of short sighted curing of disease.

I think Ruth Drown who went down that path and tried to really think in medical terms showed us the perils of that path.

She was no short sighted materialist though and at the heart of her philosophy is the clear underlying intention of profound personal realization and “in so doing raise his consciousness to where, at last, he knows he is the ruler of his own particular little world, with power to command it”

Science and Philosophy of The Drown Radio Therapy
By Ruth Drown
All things are under the command of this Great Intelligence, as it is the source of the magnetic energy of Light brought down into substance.  Magnetism holds the form, sound and substance of all things even having been, or ever being, on this plane. It is elastic, it attracts, holds, repels and shapes all things. We could liken it to the soap bubble, upon which other soap bubbles are formed. The force causing the formation is unseen, be we call it air, gas or energy.

The cells of the physical body are likewise under the command of this Great Intelligence. They are created by an unseen energy which passes through the particular pattern designated, and takes the changes of formation from the gaseous through the liquid, the gelatinous, the calcificied. Often a part of the cell formation is seen under the microscope, but the acting energy is invisible.

Every cell in our body represents its own complete body, and takes its place in the world as an individual conscious unit. Yet we, with all the millions of cells in our bodies, constitute only ONE CELL in the great body of humanity. Our earth is the smallest in this particular chain of planets, in galaxy upon galaxy of other chains.

It is impossible to conceive of the immensity of life. However, everyone must and can learn only from his own little point in the scheme of things, and in so doing raise his consciousness to where, at last, he knows he is the ruler of his own particular little world, with power to command it when he has won through to self-command.

And so we come back, inevitably, to the fact that we must begin with ourselves.

If you would like to support Borderland Sciences we would deeply appreciate it.

Inharmony: The Argument

The method I use to generate content is based on synchronicity. A person would have to be a genius to attempt to approach the Borderland Archive material in a linear way.  The problem with the randomness is that sometimes I don’t like the content or it is confusing or both.

If I don’t write it up things grind to a halt. It is like I am supposed to just flush it through the system. 

This material is pretty hard to bring together in a coherent form. It is like two different conversations at the same time with everyone talking over each other.

Ruth Drown is having an interesting conversation with Liboff Abraham R, Mcleod Bruce R and Smith Stephen D about harmony.

The scientists give a very technical example of how harmony is created in the radionic circuit as “a direct current offset resulting in a non-zero average magnetic field.” 

Ruth explains that “the disease energy is positive to the ground energy, but it is negative to the total body energy, being but a small part thereof. Therefore, it is that positive energy of the operator emanating from the tips of the fingers, coming in contact with the detector which causes a definite short in the passage of the disease energy”

For some reason Riley Crabb gives us a warning about “concentrating on the input of the senses” and introduces a sort of creepy black magick thread into the conversation. I guess he is reacting to the materialist vibes coming from the medical doctors? 

Scott Hill, almost in spite of Crabb, brings up the experiments of Dr. Koriniy in 1967 on rabbits.

On the heels of Crabbs’s portrayal of Gerald Light’s encounters with Gurdjieff in the 1930’s J.K.Huysman’s satanic Monsieur Durtal enters the stage to perform a routine that also has to do with the sense of smell. Odd.

The question of inharmony is again raised and we agree that it was “to be decided by experience rather than argument.”

Here are the excerpts:

Inharmony is the rock-botton cause of all disease, for the latter is unable to enter the body unless inharmony has taken hold. The individual has not yet learned the laws of Life. He has done certain things, year in, year out, and has struggled along, trying to make conditions yield to him, only to wear out his body and accomplish little or nothing, instead of letting go and trying to harmonize himself with the great fundamental laws.

Ruth Drown, The Science and Philosophy of the Drown Radio Therapy, Los Angeles 1938

In another embodiment, a sinusoidal current is employed in the arc windings with a direct current offset resulting in a non-zero average magnetic field to achieve the required magnetic field along the predetermined axis that is therapeutically effective.

Smith Stephen D   1994. (A Case for Electro-Therapy, Selected U.S. Patents compiled by Peter A. Lindemann)

Beware that concentrating on the input of the senses can be dangerous; for it is one of the techniques of the Left Hand path – or at least Pagan Magick.  One of our Associates went to France when Gurdjieff had his school there at Fontainebleau, in the 1930’s. One of the things which amazed him was the rows and rows of spices and other exotic edibles which Gurdjieff kept around him all the time. He enjoyed making his students eat them, demanding that they concentrate on the feelings of the taste. There were exercises for concentrating on the other senses until they became developed to an abnormal degree. This is the opposite of what we are trying to do. To me this is the Left Hand Path, emphasizing the physical nature.

Associate, Gerald Light marveled at Gurdjief’s sudden changes in weight, even though the gure wasn’t particularly big or heavy. Light said, “When Gurdjieff was asleep two of us could lift him, but when he was awake and concentrating 12 of us couldn’t lift him! And at times when he was moving about and in deep concentration, and would absent-mindedly sit down, the chair would crash to splinters under him, making him angry”

Riley Hansard Crabb, Psychic Self Defense Part III, The Dweller on the Threshold.

“Perhaps the most dramatic biological effect of laser light is the stimulation of regeneration of tissue. In 1967 Dr. Koriniy and associates carried out experiments on rabbits using monochromatic polarized light for 6300-6400 A. Identical wounds were inflicted on both ears of a rabbit, and thus each rabbit served as its own control: one ear was radiated, one was not. Distinct physiological changes included the increase of neutrophyles, occurred on the test wound but not the control wound. In successive periods, the number of phagocytes began to increase, and the bacterial flora composed of diplo- and tetracocci almost entirely phagocytosized in the wound exodate. The wound which was irradiated with MRL also healed faster. The authors concluded that the effects were due to changing properties of the skin.”

Biophotons and Biophysical Effects of Ultra Weak EM Radiation by Scott Hill M.E.E. University of Copenhagen (International Symposium on Wave Therapeutics)

The principle of diagnosing with the Homo-Vibra Ray is that all positive energies flow toward the negative energies. Thus, the positive force in the human body flows toward the ground, as our instrument is grounded. In using the human energy as the force that carries the radio-active ethers from the body to the ground, we are not able to pick it up at the present time by any other than that which is equal in every way to the human energy — hence the reason for passing the hand over the detector to pick up the disease rate of vibration as it passes toward the ground. We find that the disease energy is positive to the ground energy, but it is negative to the total body energy, being but a small part thereof. Therefore, it is that positive energy of the operator emanating from the tips of the fingers, coming in contact with the detector which causes a definite short in the passage of the disease energy or vibration from any localized tissue, organ or gland of the body. Any one of these, being but a part of the great whole, naturally is negative to the total. Any other energy would be a different rate of vibration and would take us out of the law that “like attracts like”.

It has been difficult for the average physician to recognize the great vital life force which flows through everything in the universe, giving it its ownrate of vibration. When that rate of vibration changes, the substance recognized as a definite thing ceases to be that thing and becomes something else without ceasing to be a substance. Were commercial electricity used with this instrument, we would defeat our own purpose to the degree that we would waste the electric energy, for it would not find its own rate of vibration in the human body, and we would also obscure the flow of human energy to such a degree that the patient would receive only a portion of the treatment that he otherwise would receive were he to treat with his own energy unobscured.

He pushed her aside and began to stir the salad.

“How good it smells!” said Durtal, drinking in the incisive tang of the herring.

“Do you know what this perfume suggests? A basket funnelled fireplace, twigs of juniper snapping in it, in a ground-floor room opening onto a great harbour. It seems to me there is a sort of salt water halo around these little rings of gold and rusted iron. — Exquisite,” he said as he tasted the salad.

“We’ll make it again for you, Monsieur Durtal,” said Mme. Carhaix, “you are not hard to please” -La Bas (The Great Classic Of Satanism) J.K.Huysman’

“Matter may be regarded as the battle-ground on which two different types of spirituality fight each other.”

There is where we disagree again,” observed Narbu. “I always thought there was only one type of spirituality.”

“I think this is a question to be decided by experience rather than argument.” I said.

“We shall discuss this further in the Secret City,” he replied…

Secret City in the Valley of Mystery

Clearing Obscurations

“If this were true in small ways already discovered, it is true in all ways not yet discovered, because we know the laws of Life are true and immutable”

-Ruth Drown

The Inner Circle, after months, have assembled fairly suddenly and have provided us an interesting glimpse into how polarity plays a role in clearing obscurations and creating harmony to increase vitality.

Ruth Drown orients us to Infinite Light and tears into the mechanistic approach to energy and then Mr. Inyushin introduces us to an interconnected  image of the body as a giant crystal with a complex zonal structure. 

Riley Crabb, points out that problems arise when blockages of energy creates a swamp in the emotional system.

Eric Dollard points out that once the energy starts to overflow, there is still modulation of one wave by another wave.

What I see to see here is that in spite of the apparent conflict there is the opportunity to create vitality, that where “one melody is combined with itself delayed by a given number of divisions of the measure, produces harmony by interference with itself.” 

 Reichenbach and Mesmer clarify that the blockages are overcome by this harmony by interference in the manner of magnetic passes where “at every spot of the human body on which a hand was laid or moved in unlike Odic pairing, a rise in vitality took place.”

Dollard reflecting on the process observes “It may be concluded that materials called electric conductors might best be called electric obstructors and serve not to conduct electro-magnetism but serve to reflect it back on itself.”

Crabb sums things up when he reports on L.E. Eeman’s research shows that “different parts of the body are positive and negative in relation to each other and current can flow between them.”

Life as Energy

The new physics is attempting to explain energy as the bombardment of electrical particles which float in space and to deny any knowledge as to their origin, or that they have origin except relatively speaking; namely, that the ethers are filled with them. When we feel anything, they say, it is the bumping into electrical particles, all physical phenomena can be explained from the relative position of an imaginary observer. 

The interesting thing is there is always the necessary use of the imagination of the observer or a theory that if such and such were true, than so and so would of necessity have to be true, following someone’s law which had been accepted by sciences for a certain number of years as means of measuring or deducting results. All these laws are admitted to be relative and not immutable.


Now out of this Infinite Light comes the reduction into energy, then liquid, and lastly form and substance. If the same laws be followed, these of necessity must be only one-half the cycle.

Following the laws just mentioned, form on this earth is subject to energy and light, or which it is a part. If this were true in small ways already discovered, it is true in all ways not yet discovered, because we know the laws of Life are true and immutable, and it is only form which changes, or shall we say that only what can be discerned by the five senses is  that which changes form of condition. 

Excerpt from The Science and Philosophy of the Drown Radio Therapy, 1938

Resonance, Biostimulation and The Problem of Bioplasm

In 1967 we first published a sketch of the concept of bioplasm, in which we propounded the concept of the possible existence of a plasmic state in the living organism. It follows that the bioplasm in the conditions of biological space, in contrast to inorganic plasm, possesses a high degree of order.

Our conceptions developed independently of the works of Polish researchers who published similar ideas a possible plasmic state (Sediak, 1967,1970)

We assume that the living organism should be conceived as a giant crystal with a complex zonal structure on different levels of organization. We shall endeavor to investigate the cell as the basic element of the bioplasmic structure of the living organism. 

Excerpted from V.M. Inyushin, Chairman, Department of Biophysics, Kazgosuniversitat, Alma Ata, USSR. International Symposium on Wave Therapeutics, 1979


Three Basic Drives of Life

These three drives are: 1. The urge for self-preservation, This must be first. 2. The urge for self-reproduction. 3. The social instinct.

The trouble with these three main springs of existence is that they can be blocked. When there is a blockage of anyone or two of these basic instincts then you try to adjust as best you can. But energy will overflow in other directions. We might say that it creates a swamp in the emotional system. In that swamp harmful bacteria can breed and there’s trouble.

The science of life is studying these three basic instincts and how they are expressed on various levels of consciousness–other than the obvious ones.

Producing Harmony by Interference

This multiplication, or modulation, of one wave by another wave of the same number of divisions produces what may be called canonic electric waves, after the process in music where one melody is combined with itself delayed by a given number of divisions of the measure, producing harmony by interference with itself. This process is the underlying principle behind the synchronous condenser, hysteresis motor, and parametric amplifier. The means for producing this phenomena is called synchronous parameter variation, and is the principle behind what is often called “free energy” which hence is quite possible if not certain. More on this will be given in Part III on Hysteresis.

Mesmerism- The Mesmeric Pass and The Doctors

From this luminous phenomenon, as well as from the sense of coolness produced, you clearly recognize the fact that the person making the passes causes as excitation that must be called an important one: for the od radiating blue light effects, in a way altogether peculiar to itself, as excitation upon the subject of the od with red light, unlike working unlike.

And as the human body is a receptacle strongly charged with od, while the odic matter is powerfully connected with its inmost depths, the fact of odic passes being able to penetrate deeply into the physical and mental economy of the subject is intelligible.

…I have in general found it to be a certain fact that at every spot of the human body on which a hand was laid or moved in unlike odic pairing, a rise in vitality took place, and not a mere superficial rise, but one which penetrated deeply into the internal organs.

Excerpted from Reichenbach’s Letters on Od and Magnetism, 1852

I was reading a copy of How Do You Sleep by L.E. Eeman. I found an old copy in the odds and ends back stock but I think it did not make it into the online catalog. 

It has an odd little back section called “Books to Read”. A  whole world of Mesmerism and Radiesthesia. One sort of jumped out, literally caused me to have a vivid dream-like series of images.

Margret Goldsmith enters the office. She is holding a file that is marked Simpkin Marshall Ltd. 3/6 nett.

I examine the file and it contains her book on Mesmer.

She is demanding $40.00 which does not seem like  a lot of money but I am flat broke, and I am not inclined to buy a book and no one has stolen it and put it on the web for free.

“Franz Anton Mesmer: the history of an idea”

Dawn Moutrey says “This biography of Mesmer seeks to link his ideas and practices with modern psychotherapy. It traces the history of mesmeric techniques from ancient times, through Mesmer himself, the work on hypnotism by James Braid, and then even connecting it to the early work of Sigmund Freud.” 

She also translated Erich Kästner’s Emil and the Detectives for the first UK edition.  I recommend watching the film on You Tube. 

The Character of Aethereous Space

If an electric current is conveying electro-magnetic energy as previously discussed it is found that a force or pressure is exerted upon the circuit material. This pressure tends to repel opposing parts of the circuit material and cause the circuit to expand. The quantity of this pressure in the space bounded by the circuit is called the magneto-motive force of the circuit.

It can therefore be seen that conducting materials serve as the walls of a container holding magnetic pressure. If the conducting material is in the so called superconducting state and the ends of the circuit are shorted the electric current will hold this magneto-motive pressure indefinitely, in analogy with compressed air stored in a tank. In order for this to be the result of electron flow requires that this flow be in perpetual motion, an unlikely proposition.

It may be concluded that materials called electric conductors might best be called electric obstructors and serve not to conduct electro-magnetism but serve to reflect it back on itself. The flow of electro-magnetism is conducted by the aethereous space bound  by the obstructing material.

The character of this aethereous space is represented by its inductance L and its capacitance C. Since pure space is considered a perfect insulator by atomic theory, is it not ironic that it offers the least resistance to the flow of electro-magnetism? It is then the insulators that are the true conductors of electricity.

Camped in a Veritable Cemetery

Here are a few choice quotes from the later part of Roeric’s travel diary: “Like black spiders with long legs are hidden the black tents of the Tibetians, stretching out with long ropes…We camp in the middle of a marshy plain overgrown with thin, prickly weeds. On the horizon is a lake and dead mountains. I call them dead because this is a veritable cemetery. Long ago these were great mountains, perhaps rivals of Everest; now they are eroded and crumbled into small stones. The deep valley became filled, forming a hill of 15,000 feet, open to the most brutal winds. Before reaching the most significant sites, before the heavenly Himalayas one falls into horrible marshes. The horses are slipping and stumbling among the ugly clumps. There is not a bird, not an animal…

Pragmatic Proof of Mana

You can prove the existence of ths vitality, this mana, this prana by the use of Eeman Screens; for your vitality, your ectoplasm, has polarity. It flows, from positive to negative, just like an electric current. Is this the Animal Magnetism of Dr. Mesmer in the 18th Century, or the Odic Force of Baron von Reichenbach in Germany in the 19th Century? Probably.

In testing thousands of people over a period of many years, Englishman L.E. Eeman proved that different parts of the body are positive and negative in relation to each other and current can flow between them. Is it an electrical current? No. not as the engineer knows electricity, the measurable kid, flowing along metal wires. Perhaps it’s even the “skin effect” of electrostatic energy, or something even higher yet!

Anyhow, it works. Apparently these external circuits go around buried completely in the subconscious and re-establish the circulation of blocked vitality or mana. Any metal screen will do, copper, bronze, monel, aluminum, black iron wire.

The Physics of Radionics: Training the Mind with Drown and Krafft

  One of the fundamental ideas we inherit from the past is the idea that all human beings have great capabilities and that these innate powers can be developed by practice.

Some unique individuals by evolution are gifted with the extraordinary powers and show us the latent abilities we all possess. Ruth Drown is a prime example.

Drown was gifted with the ability to heal but also deep powers of intuition to try to explain in a rational way the energies she was able to harness.

Along with other great intuitive scientists we will explore the physics of radionics with an eye to training the mind.

Project Vitic 

The longest running research project continues with a new opportunity for group interaction.

We have acquired some galvanometers to measure the changes in voltage in the body by holding carbon and iron vitic rods.

Project Vitic will have researchers post the variations of voltage we derive from the vitic rods. A group effort will give us evidence of some common patterns among the great diversity in electrical reactions to the vitic rods.

Direct experience is really one of the  best ways to understand.

One thing that is super useful is to see first hand the changes on the meter at the same time as perceptions of vitality occur in the consciousness.

I bought a set of six cheap meters for ten bucks each. To get help paying for the $250.00 post office box payment that was due in October I was hoping to sell them for 20 bucks each. The biggest problem is that the dang things sort of suck. I think mine already broke? Maybe not the best meters for $20.00, but your luck will probably be better than mine and it will work fine. 

They look great. It is so close to what I want. It is not quite sensitive enough. I want to be able to see a wider range of reactions. 

When I published in 2001 on the vitic rods I had a marvelous meter that made a digital tape readout. I wish I would have had a better idea how to read my meter and accurately describe what I was seeing. I hope we can work out the details in the next phase of the project.

The Journal Of Borderland Research Annual 2001

Radionics seems like it is mechanistic but when we start to actually find ways to observe the energy reactions we quickly discover the inner mystery of energy and intent.

Often though, the mechanics are overlooked for a purely mental approach. I would suggest that the Borderland Sciences archive strives to explore and explain in a mechanistic way, for better or worse, what has been generally approached as mental and spiritual. 

It is in our failure to do so for 75 years that creates the space for us today to continue to explore. What some may consider outdated ideas or even failures to accurately describe the phenomenon hold the seeds to the future.

Order Galvanometer


Dowsing experiments are ongoing. We continue looking into the “Serial Numbers” of elements as a precursor to the Drown Radionic Rates.

Gold has a serial number of 6, right? You recall from the last time? The pendulum should swing six times in one direction swing six times back and forth and then swing six times the other direction.

Nested vortices?

I was able to get some gold coins from the bank. Well, you can get a gold dollar for a few thousand dollars I guess. But a gold presidents coin or the sacajawea works for our practice. There is enough gold to elicit the reaction from gold. 

The research project I have been putting off is with the L-Rods and a large open field down by the bay. I want to toss a gold coin behind me and then find it with the L-Rods. It is a dollar, but that is just enough incentive to really focus, or not?

Principles & Practice of Radiesthesia

I guess I don’t really know why you would be so enlightened as to consider yourself a Borderland Scientist that has made accomplishment and progress using the catalog.

It is a self initiation into a 20th century mystery school, but how is that useful?

You have to have large chunks of your initiation already attained before you can even make sense of most of the Borderland Sciences archive. 

We do not initiate so it makes it hard when the mystery schools are not putting out candidates that are prepared to sift through the archives to make sense of it.


 “Very ancient writings deal almost wholly with the rates of vibration of all things pertaining to the mental and physical world of mankind. It is impossible to diagnose and treat the physical body without relating it to the mental. After two years of using our radio instruments, we found in the deeper study of ancient wisdom amazing and satisfying corroborations of our own development of rates of vibration. These will be discussed later with reference both to our instruments and to that ancient knowledge.”

My Search for Radionic Truths R. Murray Denning. 

My Search for Radionics Truths contains brief summaries of a host of the great scientists on the Borderland, it really is a must have text book for understanding in any sort of way the breadth and depth of what our research really represents. 

If you were to acquire one piece of information from Borderland Sciences it should be this book and you should do it today.

One of the common threads in many Borderland Sciences is to speculate on the true nature of atomic physics. 

The “Physics of Radionics” according to Ruth Drown is a prime example of a wonderful journey into the mind, imagination, perception and physics.

Our ongoing fundamental break with established physics is due to the fact that the known laws don’t explain what we perceive. At the time of Krafft and Drown these were new ideas and much like people want to use “quantum” physics to explain the mysterious function of radionics and other similar manifestations of mind and life force.

The explanations of physics are constantly shifting and growing. I find that I do get impatient reading some of the old alternative atomic physics from the 30’s and 40’s. 

I have come to see them as visualizations that are beneficial to train the imagination. As we continue to grapple with the actual physical model that will accommodate the empirical evidence gathered through the ages.

Ruth Drown has amazing intuitive powers of perception and it does us well to follow her down the rabbit hole…

“The atom has within the nucleus which is a constant flow of energy from the ethers. It is composed of a group of electrons (protons) held tightly together because of the field of force radiating from each one, which attracts other electrons with less field force.”

“These group themselves together, are held only for a second, then are thrown off into space to be slowed down at what is known as the outer field of force, or the outside shell, until something forces the energy faster than the usual impetus. When it is obstructed, the nucleus is no longer supplied. At this time the nucleus releases one or more of the electrons of weaker force field: the atom changes its structure and becomes an atom of another structure or element…”

“The forces are combining matter together according to the laws of attraction and vibration, which are influenced also by temperature. Thus heat speeds up the activity, creating more field force, and cold slows it down.”

(as a side note, I was reading in My Search that Ruth added a light bulb under the stick plate to warm it up, because she said it was easier to get a reading. This is the physics that explains that aspect of her device, perhaps?)

“Everything is in constant motion, and the greater force controls the lesser. In addition, everything goes in cycles– attracts to a point, and then repels, and is attracted by something with a greater force, until it reaches a point, then is again repelled, only to be attracted by something with an even greater force, and so on, ad infinitum.”

“Therefore the free rotating weak field force (W.F.F.) electron may at any moment be attracted away from their atom, especially if their temperature is increased. This also increases their speed and changes their field force, causing what is termed the “electronic flow.”

“If these electrons flow away, the atomic nucleus will give off more weak F.F. electrons, and will draw more strong field fore electrons to itself from its source, because it is always acting along an invisible line of energy, which is supplied from the Great Central Sun, and if any force intervenes to cut off that supply or flow, the atom may lose its identity entirely, as its nucleus would be shattered.”

“Authorities have thought that the nucleus and its protons and electrons were cemented together and held in position, but the theory does not allow for activity as it is manifesting, therefore it would stand to reason that the center having its strong F.F. electrons throws off weak F.F. electrons according to the atomic speed, which is governed largely by temperature.”


“Nevertheless it seems inevitable that gravitation must be caused by a drift of the ether through the gravitating body in the direction of its acceleration, somewhat as pictured by LaSage. If the protons and electrons of which gravitating bodies are composed were merely point charges as physicists have been assuming for nearly half a century, then it would be difficult to account for such an ether drift. On the other hand if the elementary or subatomic particles are vortices in the ether, then it should be reasonable to assume that such vortices keep the ether in  a turbulent and streaming condition. The abundance of cosmic rays in the upper atmosphere seems to corroborate the theory that the ether is active and not quiescent.”

“A dynamically active ether will readily account for a unidirectional ether drift through the gravitating body in the  direction of its acceleration. As explained elsewhere by the writer, the elementary particles of matter and electricity probably consist of dipolar vortices arranged so as to have outward polar flux and inward equatorial flux, or vice versa, depending on whether they are protons or electrons. Assuming that the ether is incompressible, the total amount of ether is incompressible, the total amount of ether which flows outwardly must be equal to the total amount of ether which flows inwardly, but the outwardly flowing currents will travel much greater distances than the inwardly flowing currents. This can be illustrated with an electric fan which will send the outwardly flowing air current a distance of ten feet or more, whereas the inwardly flowing air current cannot be felt as a distance of that many inches. Consequently when two gravitating bodies (like the earth and the sun) are at a finite distance from each other, it will be principally the outwardly flowing ether currents which will encounter each other in the space between the two bodies, and will spread out radially in all directions, eventually returning into the same bodies from the sides or from the rear…”

-Ether and Matter, Karl Frederick Krafft


It is by this training of the imagination that the ideas behind the language used to describe the energy centers in the subtle nervous system of human beings.

 “There are SEVEN Psychic Vortexes in the body.”

“These Psychic Vortexes revolve at great speed. When all are revolving at high speed and at the same rate of speed the body is in perfect health.”

-The Five Rites of Rejuvenation.

The Five Rites is an early work from 1939 which comes from a time when Tibetian Buddhism was still very rare. The ideas of chakras or wheels had not yet come into common knowledge.

By exercising the imagination we can glimpse the intuitive grasp of the 20th century mystics and scientists. Given these descriptions of vortex action in the ether both atomic and galactic make the simple direct word “vortex” in works like “The Five Rites of Rejuvenation” come to life.

A fairly detailed analysis of these seven centers can be found in some research I published in 2001.

These seven vortexes are related to the endocrine system by physical approximation and qualitative function. Ruth Drown again with her amazing powers of perception has taught this to her associates who then reported:

“The glands are so important as a foundation for the Drown Method of Treatment that not only do they come first in every diagnosis, but they are normalized first in every treatment for better results in other parts of the body which need balancing.”

“One by one we shall take up the various endocrine glands, showing their importance to each other and to the body as a whole. We shall study them from the standpoint of physiology or function, chemistry, pathology and clinical findings. In all this we are endeavoring to establish a means to an end – namely to correlate each with the Drown System of Therapy.”
