The “ground plate” theory might more reasonably apply in this instance. Where individual entrant cosmic rays might affect only white noise disturbances in either an electron sea or exotic subatomic sea, sudden gusts would suddenly “deform” a large ground region of the absorbent medium. The resultant whole regional deformation and recovery would represent a coherent energetic impulse of great power. These gusts could be entuned, the short and unexpected impulses being maximized in the proper circuitry. This is exactly what Dr. Moray described.
The sudden gust may produce a powerful electrostatic potential, which appears above the normal background of white noise as “oceanic waves”. Furthermore, if the sudden burst energy is electrostatic in nature (received into a terrestrial electrical “tank”), it is certainly received as a singular impulse with a very rapid decay among progressively lower harmonics. In this latter case, the gust impulse would enter the white noise sea, being lost in the incoherence.
In addition, we do know that conventional cosmic rays evidence abrupt showers when measured across a broad ground region. Rare interstellar cosmic rays, mostly nuclear fragments from stars, manifest in “showers”. But these do not coincide with the periodicity required for the Moray effect. Solar flare activity would account for a far greater energetic flux, manifesting the “bursts” and “impulse waves” which Dr. Moray observed. We must also remember that, both Tesla and Le Bon considered natural radioactivity as the sign of “true cosmic rays”. What conventionalists measure and call cosmic rays do not explain the constancy of radioactivity, and cannot be that of manifestation to which they referred.
If solar cosmic ray showers were not a steadily observed event, then Moray’s “cosmic rays” are not conventional. If that is so, then we must determine the nature of both entrant showers and absorbent media. If the earth “energy absorber” proves to be another energy stratum, like the aether of early Victorian physics, then we must discuss how such a fluidic energy can be conducted into the metal wires of Moray’s device.
And what if the Moray energy receiver is not be responding to “conventional” cosmic rays at all? To what then did Moray refer when speaking of “cosmic” and “radioactive waves”? There are those researchers who believe that Moray “cosmic rays” or Moray “gamma rays” may be completely different entities than those, which academes identify. Dr. Moray believed that it was “neutron bombardment” which were responsible for the powerful electrostatic emissions coming forth from his mineral. One may then consider that Moray agreed with Tesla when speaking of cosmic rays. To be specific, the Teslian definition of cosmic rays had nothing to do with those, which are conventionally described or studied by astrophysicists, being “light-like effluves”. Tesla said they were not easily detected. If proper detection of these effluves requires radioactive materials, then the most noteworthy work toward this achieving this goal was performed in special galena radio detection circuits by Daniel Winter.
According to the theories of Tesla and Le Bon, radioactive materials are the dense targets of external energetic streams. These streams were said by Moray to come in sudden “gusts”. Mr. Winter proved this principle. Galena crystals were touched with carnotite-tipped cat-whiskers. Remarkable electrostatic “spikes” appeared when sensitive spots were touched, the magnitude of which was almost impossible to measure. The device was receiving an anomalous vast energy, which came in sudden bursts.
Coupling two such detectors across a space of several feet, it was possible to show a phase-heterodyned signal, which existed as a tension between the two receivers. In other words, the lagging response between each carnotitegalena detector showed that “radioactive” waves were traveling across space. Moreover, these waves were of small impulse lengths, seeing that they could be heterodyned across such a short detection space. The waves were those, which “caused” the radioactivity of the carnotite samples. Energy bursts appeared when the waves surged. That they were traveling was revealed through the phase-lag between each receiver.
Such phase lag in radioactive materials can be easily see through careful darkroom examination of radium dial clock faces. Maintaining the dial in a constant dark condition for days permits a most amazing observation. What is seen supports the theory of Le Bon. Radioactive luminescence very obviously “flimmers” from edge to edge in endless processions, as if induced from the outside.
One uses this phenomenon as a visual detector of these external radio-inductive waves, observing sudden soft gusts of light, which often spread through and across the luminescent matter. This wavelike luminous manifestation was the phenomenon, which Victorians marveled over in a device known as the “sphinthariscope”. The flimmering waves reveal a specific band of external energetic induction, the true cause of radioactivity according to Le Bon. Small radioactive additions to appropriate conductive materials might produce the requisite detector of Teslian cosmic rays.
There are those who reduce Moray’s detector to an “atomic battery” (P. Brown). Victor Hart, a researcher who once worked with Dr. Moray, developed a special tube of his own. Witnessed by several credible witnesses, this tube resembles a Farnsworth Multipactor (Brown, Lindemann, Redfern). Cathodes are housed at opposed ends of the tube, the anode being a screen at the tube midpoint. The vessel is filled with helium and argon gases at low pressure. The target anode is a brass screen coated with a carnotite mixture (probably with caesium).
Activated by a four thousand volt discharge, the tube springs to life. Electrical meters, which are, attached to the device “go off scale” with the increased output, the tube emitting thunderous sounds and a blinding white light. In addition, there is a radiant flux, which drives distantly placed Geiger counters off-scale. The device is clearly an energy amplifier, taking electrical power at one volume and magnifying it. The agency of this transformation is, very obviously, the natural radioactive material used in the target.
Perhaps the ground surges were not “radioactive” in nature at all. Both the use of an ordinary ground connector and the simple tuning mechanism indicates a radionic activity. In fact, this is the most satisfying model to date. It organizes all the divergent aspects of the Moray receiver quite effortlessly. It does require a new perspective however.
