New and more powerful expressions of this aetheric streaming action were produced in his nitrogen supplied magnetic disrupter. The abrupt high voltage discharge applied by his dynamo managed to first expand the electron-constricted aether streams beyond their normal cross-section. The nascent electrons were made to pass in a burst through a magnetic field, to which they powerfully responded. /Ether is neutral. Tesla saw that electrical currents were actually streams of aether and its surrounding “twist” of electrons. In this regards, the chief attribute of nitrogen in the magnetic disrupter seemed to be the absorption and removal of electrons from the stream. It was obvious that this system effectively and forcefully separated electrons from the neutral aether particles inherent in the dynamo-supplied current. Once the aether stream had been cleared of its too constricting electronic envelope, it could flow freely.
The current remaining in the disrupter was a purified eetheric stream. It was this stream which was visible, flowing a bright silver-white light between the electrodes. This stream continued flowing through the thick copper strap. Bursts of aether were thus applied to any object within the copper strap, an exposure which produced uncommon effects. Tesla sought the elimination of copper from his transformers. Tesla designed a hollow tubular glass Transformer which was to utilize a special gas medium in place of the copper wire. Tesla believed that this design would produce the most purified aetheric streams imaginable. The elimination of copper would prevent any subsequent electronic manufacture capable of contaminating his magnetically purified eether streams. It is in fact probable that he did experiment with these designs.
The magnetic nitrogen gas disrupter was developed well beyond even this stage. Until well into the 1930’s, Tesla continued to speak of the device capable of producing intense rays. It was an open ended tube, one which surrounded an electrified terminal with a streaming jet of “suitable fluid”. Through such means, Tesla claimed the release of collimated rays having “transcendent intensity”. Tesla therefore appropriated means by which electrons were eliminated from currents, while Eetheric components were accelerated and released. Tesla was no longer working with “electricity”. Tesla worked with aether currents.
New and startling effects could be obtained when once the separation process, the fractionin^ process, had been engaged. Tesla found that .ether streams, though harmless to the body, were often devastating for more metallic things. Passage through various kinds of matter always produced new and strange effects. To illustrate the fact that these currents were not electrical, not some new manifestation of electronic current, Tesla often publicly performed a very strange demonstration. He grasped the upper terminal of one of his large Transformers with one hand, while in the other hand holding a thick metal bar. jEther current flowed through carbonaceous and watery media without harm. Nevertheless, Tesla dramatically proved the strange bombarding power of these non-electronic currents as the metal in his hand either melted or exploded. The reaction of materials was entirely due to the bombardment effect of aether on the matter. But matter alone was not the only variable which could effect new aetheric phenomena. Geometries also shaped the phenomena.
Highly segmented geometries fractioned electronic charge from aether by resisting and blocking the electrons normally constrained to move through the wire length. Blocked by the high resistant because of impulsive applications of current, aether was free to surge over the segments fluidically. Tesla now saw that the ability of aether to pass over segmented metallic surfaces, such as his helical and spiral Transformers, was only a fortuitous attribute. It was accidental that he observed this phenomenon at all. But Tesla found numerous other attributes of this energetic stream, attributes which manifested themselves only when aether interacted with certain materials and laboratory components. All important to these responses of aether, among the symmetries of metals and insulators, was the impulse duration applied in generating the stream. It was the brevity of each impulse in the projected train which stimulated each response.
Aetheric streams could be projected in extremely parallel paths by solid sheets of polished metal. Concave mirrors focussed the streams. Cone shaped hoods focussed the streams. Placing gas filled spheres in copper cylinders produced potent and directed rays. Tesla investigated the various aspects of rays which his transmitters now projected with great interest. His radiant system was like no other. This projective radiance bore all the characteristics of light, yet was invisible. Tesla called these manifestations “dark rays” and “dark light”. He found that they could be reflected when both their impulse rate was a specific interval, and when appropriate metal surfaces were intercepted.
Tesla observed that shadowgraphs could be made by his beam projectors when intercepted by photographic films. He accidentally discovered the effect while using light from his beam projectors to photograph himself and several friends. The developed image was one which revealed far more than the portrait itself. Tesla found that “dark rays” could pass through walls, producing images on fluorescent screens. The effects were not X-Rays, being reflected from thick metal walls. With the simple first such projectors, Nikola Tesla found it possible to wirelessly illuminate lamps at great distances, push objects, charge objects, and burn holes through objects. In short, any amount of power could be delivered along the beamray channels.
In this we glimpse subatomic particle streams not completely electronic in nature. The abrupt disruption of current stimulates an energetic release, the result of violence done to matter. Tesla found it possible to focus and beam these rays, effects which many have sought to reproduce. But despite the repeated failure of academes and well-intentioned experimenters to reproduce these effects, one individual dominates the scene. In these most important demonstrations, vindications of Teslian Technology, it must be mentioned that Eric Dollard successfully reproduced several of these effects and made the results available in a series of videocassettes. In these, Mr. Dollard demonstrates the charging of capacitors by the radiant emission of impulse-supplied vacuum lamps. This charging action occurred across a small space between the side of these lamps and the blunt face of a high voltage capacitor. This anomalous feat was also followed by a remarkable demonstration of mass-repulsion, and another of mass-attraction. In addition, while using gaseous projector tubes as Tesla prescribes, Mr. Dollard demonstrated the transmission of pulsating aether across the laboratory, with the subsequent absorption and conversion of the same into a measurable current.
