Radiant Energy

One of the most marvelous relationships that has ever been revealed in the entire science of physics is that between light and electricity. Knowing what we do at the present time in regard to the structure of atoms, this relationship is not quite so surprising. However, considering the total absence of knowledge a half century ago, pertaining to the existence of electrons in atoms of matter, the sudden revelation that light (and radiation in general) was an electrical phenomena was very startling and revolutionary. Even today these persons who are unfamiliar with fundamental physics find it difficult to believe that energy traveling from yonder star to the eyes is electromagnetic in nature. But that it is so has been amply proved. The atom in those distance stellar crucibles having moving electrons which are emitting electromagnetic waves of many wavelengths or frequencies. Here on Earth we have many ‘receiving stations’ which are tuned to certain ranges of wavelengths.”

“RADIANT ENERGY” by Edgar Lucien Larkin, Director Lowe Observatory, Echo Mountain, California, printed in 1903, on page 17:

“Radiant here means proceeding from a center in straight lines in every direction. Energy is internal and inherent. Professor Barker, “Physics,” page 4, says: ‘Energy is defined as a condition of matter in virtue of which any definite portion may effect changes in any other definite portion.’ This was written in 1892, and discoveries since confirm it. Energy then, is a state of matter, or, rather, the result of a particular state or condition in which matter may be when any observed phase of energy appears.”

The SUN PHOTO SERVICE Salt Lake City, Utah .

Feb. 26, 1940 Dr. T. H. Moray 2484 South 5th East St Salt Lake City, Utah.

Dear Sir:

We wish to thank you for the recent business you have given us, and hope we may have the pleasure of serving you again.

For your information we wish to state that in all cases where negatives included any of your lights we found them to be of greater intensity than ordinary illumination. They seem to burn in the negative to such a degree that we found it necessary to cut special masks to hold back the immediate area of illumination in order to obtain any outline of the globes whatever. We found the average negative required about ten times the normal exposure in the areas where lights were used. This is especially interesting as in photographing ordinary lights when shining directly into the lens of camera the light outline can be plainly seen even though the negative is dense at point of illumination and in the case of your lights the only detail possible to obtain had to be brought out through holding back dense area as mentioned above.

Very truly yours,

THE SUN PHOTO SERVICE

Have other letters from expert photographers which all show the activity of the rays by the way they burned into the photographic film.

* * * One hears a great deal about the work being done by the cyclotron or atom-smasher, from the first one constructed by Dr. C. E. Lawrence at the University of California to the sixteenth American cyclotron now under construction at the University of Illinois. The University of Illinois already had a small one, the second one built in the world; but this new one, which will be ready about April or May of 1942, and which will have taken many many months to construct, will have six huge iron castings weighing 60 tons. One section will have two miles of copper tubing wound into a dozen flat coils.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars are being spent for apparatus with which to effect transformations and many of the greatest scientists are giving their entire time to this work. All this time and money could be saved if we would but realize the fact that nature is splitting atoms all the time for us. That is the source of energy of the Universe being given to us free of charge.

The Carnegie Institution of Washington, D. C., has its Atomic Physics Laboratory. At Harvard University mercury has apparently been turned into gold by the cyclotron. This experiment was reported in Washington to the American Physical Society by Dr. Sherr and Professor Bainbridge.

The report shows, however, that the amount of gold obtained was so exceedingly minute that its presence was shown only by an indirect method. Further, it is in a form of gold that vanishes rapidly. It decays like radium. With one form detected, after 48 minutes half of a given amount was gone; after another 48 minutes half of what remained was gone and so on. Other forms lasted but a few days. Small amounts of platinum were also formed by transmutation of mercury.

A tiny amount of gold was mixed with about a pound of the bombarded mercury as a bait to draw the transmuted gold atoms together.

One can see, therefore, that transmutation of metals is an accomplished fact, something which twenty years ago would have been called impossible by the same institutions that are spending so much time and money today on this research.

So again it is with great satisfaction that the Research Institute and its predecessor, the Moray Scientific Laboratories, sees that the work it has been doing and for which it was called all sorts of kind ( ? ) names is being followed by others.

We say followed by others advisedly, because as early as 1911 the personnel which is now a part of the Research Institute, advanced as facts, discoveries of rays of the universe and of matter, which today are being substantiated in the greatest institutions of the world.

As early as 1925, by a method far less complicated and expensive, the Moray Scientific Laboratoies, the fore-runner of the Research Institute, changed common lead so that it could be heated to a white hot heat before melting. Other treated lead which contained no precious metals before treatment assayed as follows: May 28, 1940, from one ounce of lead treated at Salt Lake City, Utah, and assayed at the Boaz Mine, Norris, Montana, assayed 35c in gold. Five ounces of untreated soil assayed blank while the same amount of treated soil assayed at the rate per ton of $122.50 in gold.
