Radiant Energy

This energy has a definite elastic rigidity and density, which is subject to displacement and strains. When the strain is removed, this medium will spring back to its old position and beyond, surging back and forth as the waves of the sea, and will continue to oscillate until the original pressure is used up. If the internal impedence is too great, there will be no oscillations, but it will merely slide back in a dead beat to its unrestrained state. Cutting down the resistance to the minimum and by synchronous actions of the device with the actions of the Universe, recovery will be quicker and quicker until inertia will assert itself and lengthen out the time of final recovery by carrying the recoil beyond the natural oscillation and thus prolonging the vibrations by oscillation. When the recovery is distinctly oscillatory and harmonics set in the oscillations will go on forever because of the oscillations of the Universe. As I said, these electric oscillations are not simple oscillations, but surgings with a definite beat note of the evolution of matter and the evolution of energy.

It is not claimed that all of Dr. Moray’s theories are proven, but it is claimed that the device works. The results are certain and that in the absence of better explanation as given in the 1931 edition of “Beyond the Light Rays,” Dr. Moray’s explanation is as good as any.

In explaining this theory in 1929 to a well-known and noted American Scientist, he remarked, “You go in your theory back of the law of gravitation.”

We may readily take it for granted that a perpetual light, like perpetual motion, is an impossibility. I say that because I do not believe in perpetual light or motion, which, in a sense, is one and the same thing as getting something for nothing.

In this day and age it is not well to say anything is impossible, but getting something for nothing goes beyond my conception of thought. What I have done in Radiant Energy has been and is perhaps rightfully called “radical.” Nevertheless, of the great number of learned men who have seen and heard of my work, not one has been able to disprove my claims, theories or discoveries. Among those in question have been some of America’s foremost in Science, although they have spent from many hours to days on my theory and claims and test demonstrations. Hence this further explanation of the Moray theory, on which Moray has spent his time from boyhood.

The facts and theories herein contained are not contrary to ideas that science has now accepted. They are, however, original with me in application and when I first publicly advanced them in 1925 they were “killed” as it were by those who heard them before they got very far. Be that as it may, I have taken “Radiant Energy” and found a means of using it. Heat, light, etc., are not things in themselves, but sensations or effects produced by this “Radiant Energy” directly or indirectly from matter.

Electricity is vibrations or radiation. Where ether (or if you do not like that name, call it what you will) is quiescent, we see nothing. Light causes vibrations of this “ether” and it is these vibrations which cause our eyes to detect. All substances are really combinations of one primordial substance, i. e. electricity, or, in other words, electricity is specifically modified ether. Electrons in motion go to constitute an electric current. Ether waves in motion go to constitute an electric current. What electricity is to matter, so is electric force to common mechanical force, and electrical inertia to common inertia. By inertia, I mean the ratio of force to acceleration. Perhaps electric inertia might be defined as the ratio of electric motive force to the acceleration of electric displacement.

Below will be found some excerpts from ‘some Scientific books.

“ASTRONOMY”, by Robert H. Baker, Ph. D. Professor of Astronomy, University of Illinois, page 303:

“Another problem relates to the apparent lavish expenditure of this radiation. Of all the energy that pours forth from the sun, less than one part in 200 million is intercepted by the planets and their satellites. The remainder spreads through interstellar space with little chance, so far as we can know, of being recovered. The suggestion that the sun shines only in the direction of material that can intercept it makes an appeal from the point of view of economy, but appears to have little else to recommend it. It would seem that nature is squandering its resources of energy so prodigally that it must end in bankruptcy; but we doubtless have at present an imperfect account of the situation.”

“FOUNDATIONS OF THE UNIVERSE” by M. Luckiesh, D.Ss. Director of Lighting Research Laboratory, General Electric Company, printed in 1925, page V:

“In the far-off stellar crucibles we see the same laws being obeyed as in our laboratories. As we trace down to the almost infinitesimal constituents of the extremely minute atom we find that apparently it does not exist at all as the realistic matter which we have supposed it to be. There at its very foundation it seems to consist of electric charges which probably simulate the motions of celestial bodies * * *. It is becoming more and more certain that the apparent complexity of nature is due to our lack of knowledge. As the picture unfolds it promises a marvelous simplicity.”

Again quoting from “FOUNDATIONS OF THE UNIVERSE,” by Dr. Luckiesh of General Electric, pages 41-43:

“The great success of the atomistic principle as it is involved in the kinetic theory of matter is one of the wonders of the modern scientific age. It is to be expected that it has found other applications equally fascinating and promising. It is now being pressed further into the service of explaining the structure of matter. . . . ”

“When Maxwell (1873) propounded the electromagnetic theory of light (radiation), his achievement was epochal. The exact manner in which the radiant energy traversed space was not known, and the exact epochal event was the founding by Planck (1900) of the quantum theory. Here we have the atomistic principle applied to energy instead of being confined to the material of the universe as it had been. In other words, in the quantum theory we have the atomistic idea applied to physical processes. We now have the atom of matter, the atom (electron) of electricity, and the atom (quantum) of action (a product of energy and time). Planck assumed the emission of radiation (from the sun, a lamp filament, etc.) to occur discontimiously. He conceived elements of energy of equal magnitude analogous to the equality of electrons, or atoms of a given element. Radiation or radiant energy is emitted of various wave lengths or frequencies which must be taken into account in laws of radiation. . . . Now the physicist uses quanta as commonly as he does electrons and atoms and molecules. Bodies are built of molecules, the molecules of atoms, and the atoms of electrons (and protons). Here we see the atomistic principle applied to “material” (matter) and then to electricity (What shall we call it?). Finally, a physical process—the radiation emitted by the electrons—is divided into quanta. With such pictures of the universe being constructed we may cease to be surprised at anything, but our interest and admiration will grow. Will we ever get to the final foundation?”
