If such were the case, then huge power stations could be made merely from the natural radioactivity of certain substances. Paul Brown had chronicled the history of such patented nuclear batteries as far back as 1926, and had claimed that Moray’s device was just such a nuclear battery. We can hardly agree, although I find Mr. Brown’s papers marvelous, and his research thrilling in every aspect.
I may describe the steps involved in proving that Moray was not building mere nuclear batteries. I must also include the mention of an experiment performed by an associate of Dr. Moray, a researcher who has developed an interesting device reminiscent of Philo Farnsworth’s cold-cathode power tube, although along his own lines and originality of thought. Mr. Hart has a tube which is depressurized and filled with a mixture of mercury and helium. Within this tube are two screens which are saturated with carnotite. Each end of the tube has an electrode, and these are connected (electrode and screen) to a 4000 volt transformer.
When the A.C. power switched on, there is a sudden transformation in the room as the tube begins to thunder and rattle. The sounds outside the tube are said, by Mr. Winter, to resemble small lightning strokes. Geiger counters held far from the apparatus simply go off the scale. Contrary to the opinions of some observers of this phenomenon, we believe that a strange dynamic surge fluxes through the room, we do not believe that it is a mere electromagnetic disturbance which effects the Geiger tube “jam”.
Such radio-electric phenomena must be better chronicled and collated. Dr.Moray did not have the resources to purchase radium chloride in suitable quantities to achieve the initial 5 KW outputs which he demonstrated. Neither would he expose personnel and self to dangerous fluxes of rays with his detectors, were they of these varieties. I do not believe he would carry these in his pocket (as he did on several occasions) were these dangerous radium tubes. To achieve the greater outputs which he demonstrated later on (the 50 KW devices) he did not need to purchase more radium chloride.
The very mystery of Dr. Moray’s device rests on his discovery of mutual, irregular pulsations which he found two or more detectors to demonstrate. Such regional, environmental effects could only be due to an external agent of far greater power than even that of radioactivity. In fact, when Dr. Moray saw this phenomenon at work, then he realized the validity of Nikola Tesla’s belief of the real cause of radioactivity.
Tesla believed that any material which was demonstrating the continuous emission of fine particles as energetic as he detected them to be, must surely be under an even more intense bombardment. Such a bombardment must surely be due to a particulated emission which was ever more fine than those rays being emitted. That specific materials were the ones manifesting these continuous emissions indicated that certain densities of matter were required before interceptions of these “cosmic rays” could occur.
Only certain nuclei would intercept these rays and explode under impact. This is far from what we have been told in the halls of academia. The leading physics persons of the day will (in the same breath) tell you that all phenomena are self-generated and insular, while also asserting that there can be no spontaneous manifestations of energy without an outside agent. If “radioactive atoms” are spontaneously exploding because of some internal resonant condition, then what is causing that disturbance?
Only Tesla’s deduction may point us in the way of further discoveries concerning radioactivity. But nuclear batteries are not what we are about here. When Tesla described his “cosmic-ray” theory of radioactivity, he was allowing possibilities into the scenario which the academicians do not support or believe. One of these would be the fact that radioactive samples could be altered and limited from their “half-life,” a fact which both Gustav LeBon and Moray demonstrated repeatedly. This was accomplished by simply heating any sample to a good red heat, and watching the radioactivity drop to less than a third of its intensity.
Gustav LeBon described these findings repeatedly in his excellent texts, and he told of the varieties of changes which could be detected in the kinds of rays emitted thereafter. In fact, he took radium itself and reduced its radioactivity so far that a few days later were required before emissions were back up to level. All these phenomena make the academic claims of “immutable” radioactivity very suspicious. Perhaps certain groups, groups heavily invested in the radium and uranium markets do not want this data to become widely known.
Paul Brown’s great work on nuclear batteries would bring these moguls to their knees if sufficient numbers of foreign competitors in the global village could force the greedy into the old frontier. Such batteries have an output many times exceeding those of fission-plants, were their size taken in proportion.
Gustav LeBon mentioned that ordinary materials could be made into radioactive sources by simply exposing them to specific bands of ultraviolet light. Such effects were due to resonant breaking of materials under the specific dynamic absorbed aluminum into rays. A complete dissolution of the material would be transformed into usable energy, with no waste matter at all!
Dr. LeBon’s vision of Atomic energy was more sublime than the scientific personnel at Los Alamos ever dreamed of. What Dr. LeBon spoke of was the release of Intra-Atomic energy, energy of pure matter, into pure ether again. Such energy release would require either electrical triggering or ultra-violet triggerings at specific resonant frequencies.
When once the process was initiated (under perfect control) it would release more energy than that of the trigger. Energy so released would result in the perfect conversion of material into ether directly.
The atomic energy of the archetypical visitor “Klaatu” (in the epic “The Day The Earth Stood Still”) spoke of such an atomic energy. In fact, the very props used in depicting the craft and its inner workings, are so “radionically emissive” that one wonders why few considered this idea in their own research. The vision of great discoverers can never be suppressed. Such extreme power radiates from their minds into those many others, sensitive and receptive enough to permute the original power. Another movie (“This Island Earth”) permutes the notions of Reich and Moray very splendidly. These permutations into art will be discussed elsewhere.
