The Case for Diagnosing by Measurement

Wliiii Intnests us at present is the physical or, as one may say, the niiili’iliil lni’iii, and the possibility of putting it to real use and reducing

ii i11 i \ stem and those who think it can only be explained mentally the mental or psychic school. There have been abundant facts to

uppoit both sides, but the conclusion has been gaining ground of late, Unit both may be right. We must in fact assume that we are dealing with two illlleieut orders of energies, but which are in correspondence and 1 ‘i” nib together. Progress in understanding will come from an accept-

……’I tin;, fact, and with research to disentangle the physical from the

iin and indeed from the psychic and vice versa. In this way it will be pii’i’iililt in build up a science, as well as an art, of Dowsing and Radi-• Hi. i i Iniin a basic understanding of the true nature of the facts and iln ii iiileuelationship, particularly their correspondence.”

In the development of Radionics it was found that actual contact with a patient was not essential, and that a ‘witness’ i.e. a sample of a patient would serve the same purpose. This ‘witness’ could be a blood-uiinple, or amongst other things, hair. Radionic Practitioners who use titled blood say this gives them all the particulars of the donor. As far ii-i I kriow, there has never been any written explanation of the validity ill tin statement, but the following will remove any doubts from peopled minds.

Although not generally known, it has been proved by scientific . Hperiinents in Germany and Switzerland, that dried blood can be re-liquilied, and that a sample of such will hold the precise properties it onglnally had. 1 have written permission to quote the following, ‘Ex-11in l translated from ‘A Monograph of Experience’ by Frieda Bessenich, on The Method of the Sensitive Crystalization.

“The blood necessary for carrying out the test is taken from the patient’s linger. Formerly it was allowed to drip into a small graduated test tube with distilled water up to a concentration of 6% blood. It then had to be put on crystallization immediately because it became useless al ter one hour. For many years the possibility of changing the blood into a condition which allowed its use after longer periods of time was sought.”

“In l(M4 A. Rohlofs (Benefeld, Hannover) discovered that the blood preserves its usefulness for the crystallization test if the blood is diawn onto filler paper and allowed to dry. A series of comparisons made in our laboratories confirmed Rohlofs’ experiments, i.e. the usefulness of blood dried on filter paper is equal to fresh blood.”

“After receipt of the dried blood in the laboratory the bloodspots are cut out and dissolved in a corresponding quantity of distilled water in a temperature of 37°C.”

“Some drops of the blood-solution are then mixed with an 18.6% Copperchloride solution. That mixture is poured into evaporating plates. The time of evaporating before the actual crystallization starts, should be 13 16 hours. After the crystallization is finished the plates are dried for 12 hours.”

“Rohlofs* discovery has been of great importance because it is now possible to send blood samples to the laboratory by post. There is practically no limit in distance. Special investigations have shown that dried blood is still useable after 2—3 weeks.”

It will be seen that these experiments show that fresh blood, dried blood and reliquified blood all hold the properties of the donor.

Still on the question of blood, there is a theory that blood-samples should not be used because, if a person has had a blood-transfusion, their sample is no longer related solely to them. It is suggested that blood samples should be replaced by hair. But it must not be forgotten that blood samples have been used effectively by Practitioners for very many years without difficulty or comment.

There is, of course, a practical point of view as well. Unfortunately for those holding the ‘no-blood’ theory their premise does not stand up to examination, and in order that there can be no possible ambiguity on this score, I propose to enlarge on the theme in some detail.

A scientific colleague with whom I discussed the question put it this way, “It is important to distinguish between the identity of the . …….. being the chemical substance of the blood-spot or what lies within Hi. i hemii .d substance.

The blue-print of a person lies in the genes and these are in the Mi h mI Therefore, the radiations that the genes emit… the DNA emits, lilt nIiIh s the body. There cannot be any confusion on this.

“No modern scientist, no modern biologist but will confirm that iln identity ol any living thing, particularly any vertebrate thing, lies in iln )•’ mi ‘., and absolutely no two can be the same. The genes, whether in the lor, or in the bones, or the head or finger are identical, and they i o o|innir lo make an efficient machine to maintain their existence.

“Now in the complex human form, we have the blue-print in the I >N A which is the genes, and whatever food we eat, the machine which i , iln body, lakes it and converts it into useable form for the body. And li n mi’ i.iIm h out such as it wants to provide energy, it disposes of the iMldup

nil IIid is made IN the body and destroyed IN the body. If the body i – hoi I of its own blood, for a variety of reasons, and the blood hi iinoihei healthy human is introduced, it doesn’t substitute for the body’s natural blood, it simply assists the natural blood to carry on a. line, and the life in the body of BOTH is a short time in the terms of Iln Identity itself.

Iln Ininslused blood has no permanent residence in the host bod\ II is not like grafting in a piece of bone, or kidney. That is a dif-liiriil thing. Blood is being destroyed regularly and recreated con-uliinlly And since the blood that is used in transfusion is mixed v/ith Ihnt nl iln body, and MUST be destroyed with the host’s blood, there i an then be no further transfused blood left. Further recreation of blood by Ihe host, through its genes pattern, MUST retain the unique-iirun ol I luil particular body. It can do nothing else.”’
