Radiant Energy

July 25, 1940, an assay was made by the Union Assay Office of Salt Lake City, Utah, from about 50 c.c. of treated artesian water (untreated water had no precious mineral content) assayed at the rate per ton of $10.50 in gold, $2.63 silver. Sample serial No. 88193. Test serial No. 7209 made July 27, 1941, on another sample treated, assayed 70c in gold and 43c in silver.

It must not be understood that this was done on a commercial basis but in the laboratory just as the results given above that were obtained at Harvard. The only difference was that the gold, silver and platinum obtained at the Research Institute was not in such tiny amounts that their presence could only be detected by indirect methods, but that they were in great enough quantities that they could be assayed. They could be milled and separated from the other metals and could be weighed. Furthermore, none of these precious metals vanished, but still exist and can be examined by anyone.

In America and abroad, especially in Germany, scientists have devised the thermal diffusion method which has proven to be one of the most efficient methods of separating the different forms of isotopes of the elements. With this method scientists have separated not only the isotopes of chlorine, but those of neon, krypton and others, but again this is an expensive process.

By the methods used in the laboratories of the Research Institute very interesting results have been had with copper, lead, aluminum and magnesium. A cheap alloy which blends well with other metals has been experimented with, the commercial price will be much less than magnesium, yet the atomic weight is about the same after it is fused by special rays and frequencies of a Radiant Energy device developed in the Institute laboratories.

Successful experiments were also carried on in 1940 to greatly increase the radioactivity of carnotite, uranium and other radio-active substances. This method brings results heretofore not obtained by any other method.

Hollywood, Calif., May 20, 1942. Dear Mr ……………………….

With reference to our recent conversations and as a means of clarifying my position, let me repeat some of the statements I have made to you.

At that time and other times I wrote you, among other things, the following, which I will again repeat:

“It is recognized that in addition to possessing kinetic energy, the atom is capable of absorbing energy internally. This internal energy would seem to be associated with the configuration of the particles of which the atom is composed. While under ordinary conditions an atom is in what is known as the normal state, or the state in which we find matter apparently neither giving off, nor absorbing energy. The internal energy of the atom can be altered; for while under ordinary conditions an atom is in what is known as the normal state, when the internal energy of the atom exceeds that of its noraml state it is said to be excited. Excitations may be caused in several ways, among which is the collision of the atom with rapidly moving positive or negative particles, or as in the breaking of the lines of force in the modern electromagnetic generator, which I prefer to call an electric pump, for the electric generator does not create the electrical energy any more than the water pump creates the water. Kinetic energy is given up, or, in other words, this excitation causes these rapidly moving particles to give up some or all of their kinetic energy to the atom during the collision. A limiting case of excitation is ionization, in which energy is absorbed by the atom sufficiently to allow a loosely bound electron to leave the atom against the electro-static force which tends to hold it within the atom. An atom which has given up one or more electrons is said to be ionized.

It is possible that ionization, or in other words excitation, may take place in successive steps through absorption of quanta energy, or, in other words, through the evolution of matter and the evolution of forces, matter is continuously changing into energy and energy continually changing into matter. The return of an ionized atom to a state of lower energy is associated with electromagnetic radiation. So also from the process of ionization which may result from a number of causes, and the one we are interested in is through cosmic radiation, electric energy becomes associated with the oscillation or sonic of the universe. The higher the frequency, the greater the ionization or excitation. Or, as I have stated before, matter is susceptible to motion; the universe continually changing into energy and energy into matter. All energy appertains either to matter or excitation of energy and continually passes from one to the other, or in other words, continually possessing kinetic energy. There, at its very foundation, matter consists of an electric charge which governs the very motion of the planets and suns. I consider gamma rays or radio activity an electrical action only of a different rate of vibration.

If one, therefore, sets up a sonic oscillation, a sonic oscillation existing in the realms beyond the light rays, one will be in harmony with the oscillations of the universe, the energy that is coming to this earth continuously, oscillating back and forth in a definite sonic. Some call it radio activity.

Relativity theory suggests that radiation of any large amount of energy is accompanied by a like loss of mass. This loss of mass is given up as the loss of energy. If in the formation of an amount of energy we have an accomplished loss of mass, as has been explained by astro-physicists to account for the radiant energy of the sun and the stars, it is equally reasonable to believe that energy in returning back to the source from whence it came, is capable of again creating mass, and through this process we have a lowering in the potential with no less mass and no less energy. The energy used to drive any of our great power systems has not been absorbed, it merely sinks back to the place from whence it came, as water over a wheel. There is nothing about this that suggests perpetual motion, but it is merely a case of the evolution of matter and the evolution of forces. This might be called the economy of the universe, for if it were not so, nature could be accused of squandering her resources of energy so prodigally tKat nature would eventually end up in bankruptcy, but doubtless in our present theories, we have a very imperfect account of the situation.
