The man’s great stature was not hidden, despite his humbled position. But when he spoke of these designs and research goals, the very air began to brighten around him! He mentioned regret at having to postpone his work, but was very sure that all would turn out well. What he had shared was enormous. Inspiration of the purest kind. When Timkin and his business partner Bridges realized exactly what Dr. Rife had hoped to achieve, they made a resolute decision to arrange financial support for the work at hand. Timkin and Bridges created an endowment fund to finance Dr. Rife and his astounding research. Rife was delighted. Delighted to tears. An emotional man, he promised that no one would be disappointed. He would work until success. A laboratory was constructed on the Timkin estate grounds, (Point Loma, California) and Dr. Rife set to work with a fury, which surprised those who lovingly surrounded him.
Timkin and Bridges were taken aback by the rapidity with which Dr. Rife completed each design, which he began. His efforts were relentless, a true inspiration to the equally loving people who supported his research. It was very apparent that the pensive and gentle doctor was serious in the extreme.
Dr. Rife aggressively pursued and achieved what had not been done in the field of ultra-microscopy. His mind had turned over the method, which he had conceived so many years before. The dream, which Dr. Rife originally received, was now in view. Looking for more light. He decided to try filling the entire objective with cylindrically cut quartz prisms. There would be no difference in refractive index from start to finish along the optical path. Quartz prisms would “open out” each ray convergence, maintaining strictly parallel ray cadence. An increased ray content being thus returned to the ocular, the image would be brilliant in appearance and of high resolution.
This configuration of quartz prisms caused the rays to “zig-zag” in 22 light bends. The internal optical path was now entirely composed of 22 quartz blocks, fitted snugly to lenses. It was as if the entire device were one solid crystal of diverse surfaces. Now, specimen emergent light would launch out in parallel paths through quartz prisms, being magnified only when they reached each quartz lens. This optical tracking method would insure the brilliance of the emergent image.
A second optical innovation was added to this brilliant configuration. Dr. Rife decided to use a phenomenon by which strong specimen-entrant light stimulates internal fluorescence in the specimen. Pumping the specimen with brilliant ultraviolet-rich light would shift the divergence point into the very heart of the specimen rather than beneath, forcing the specimen to radiate its own brilliant ultraviolet rays.
Here was a true, vanishingly small radiant source with which to illuminate the specimens: they themselves would become the radiant source! This concept was truly sublime, since the very infinitesimal particles themselves were now made to radiate brilliant and divergent rays. This scheme was truly original from the very start. Dr. Rife then designed a system by which selected portions of the ultraviolet spectrum could be split and directed into the specimen using a polarizer. Turning this component of the system would allow each specimen to brightly fluoresce in its own absorption spectrum, the infinitesimal specks radiating their own maximum brilliance.
Theoretically, it was possible to magnify these brilliant specular rays to any degree. But a secondary monochromatic ultraviolet ray would perform an unheard wonder. When combined with the brilliant internal fluorescence of the specimen, this secondary ultraviolet addition would heterodyne the light. This meant that light pitches from the specimen would be raised far above its original values. At such shorter wavelengths, the resolving power of this device would be incredible.
An additional monochromatic deep ultraviolet beam was mixed with the fluorescent radiance of specimens, producing an astounding visual sharpness of otherwise invisible objects. The illumination scheme and the tube filled cluster of quartz prisms (designed to maintain the specimen emergent rays in absolute parallels) were now brought together. Dr. Rife claimed that these parallel lines were within one wavelength of accuracy, an astounding claim.
He soon created a small ultra-microscope whose fundamental mode of operation violated the
supposed laws of optics. This design outperformed all previous ultra-microscopes. So astonishing was this feat that the Franklin Institute, in rare form, published a long and detailed series of articles concerning the developments of Dr. Rife. They were also given several of these units for preservation, where they remain to this day.
This microscope was different, totally different. This microscope revealed not just viruses in their dormancy. This microscope could see viruses in their active stages with magnified clarity. Dr. Rife’s Prismatic Microscope surpassed the theoretical limits, which were possible for optical microscopy in 1930, giving unheard resolutions of 17,000 diameters; three times the resolution developed by Dr. Lucas.
The first Prismatic Microscope was a horizontal optical bench assembly, mounted on a massive pier. Fitted with the finest photographic instruments, Dr. Rife took breathtaking photographs at unheard magnifications. The resolution was so staggering that research institutes rushed to watch Dr. Rife’s demonstrations.
His accomplishments were extolled by the entire medical establishment on both sides of the Atlantic. An incredible amount of professional research publications devoted lengthy articles to his achievements. His findings were duplicated and reported by leading medical institutes whose names are well known. Therefore our general lack of knowledge concerning his life story is equally conspicuous.
Dr. Rife, humble enough to have worked as a chauffeur, had been raised from obscurity to fame … from shadows to light. The man’s genius was only equaled by the upstanding character by which he was loved. The Timkin family adored him. The Rife laboratory was completely equipped with the very finest apparatus money could buy. Dr. Rife methodically designed new research ventures. Incredible new biological discoveries followed him in every direction. Now, with this “ultra vision”, he was able to peer with his colleagues into unheard dimensions. These discoveries quite often challenged accepted biological and medical notions.
