31 Dec 2015 My organic orgonite bowls experiments and Dr. Wilhelm Reich’s Orgone Accumulators

Hello all and Happy New Year (Eve)! Hope this finds you all having a good day and end to your year.

Today I wanted to share some pictures of my mostly organic orgonite bowls and talk about the fun I had with the volt meter today. Yes, I am easily amused. I said having fun with a volt meter!

So I decided it would be interesting to measure my bowls for any kind of energy signature. This is what happened.  I noticed when I did measurements on the bowls when they were against a wall with electrical wiring, the readings were all over the place.  They fluctuated up and down.  I couldn’t get a fixed reading.  This happened for both AC and DC measurements but mostly the AC.

Then I moved the bowls to our wooden kitchen table and things changed a lot. I hardly got any readings at all at first outside or inside the bowls.  Then I noticed something really interesting.  When I took a deep breath, spoke or moved close to the bowls, the measurements would fluctuate. The numbers would go back to zero’s when I backed away and didn’t interact with the bowls.

I decided to film this and then another interesting thing happened….no readings at all. Just zeros!  I did the same thing I was doing without the camera but didn’t get the same results.

What I think happened is the energy field was stronger when I was directly interacting with the bowl versus when I was trying to film my interaction with the bowl. When I was trying to film things, my “attention” energy was filtered through the camera lense and wasn’t as direct if that makes sense.  My energy flow to the bowl was obstructed.  Kind of like what Mr. Keshe talks about with plasma energy flow in the coils for the MAGRAV system.  The inner and outer coils must be wound in the same direction, otherwise the flow of plasma energy is obstructed.

This seemed to me tangible evidence of what they talk about when the observer affects the outcome of an experiment. It would seem it is really true that the observer has an effect on the outcome of an experiment.  The intentional energy of the observer is a measurable force that can interact with solid matter.

I’m pretty sure, haven’t googled it, but this discovery of mine has probably been documented and much better study and analysis has been done on this phenomenon. It was just neat to be somebody like me and see this for myself.

The other interesting thing was taking the volt meter to the Virgin Mary ceramic statue that sits on my nightstand next to my bed. The readings on her for AC were like 0.124 and fluctuated in these high numbers.  I did the measurement next to a nightstand lamp and again, a wall with electrical wiring.  When I took her to the kitchen table like I did with the bowls, nothing!

This makes me wonder if there is something going on with the lamp or wiring for that wall?  I have no training as an electrician so when I’m doing this stuff I’m just looking at the different currents and looking at numbers on the volt meter.  It’s so interesting to try and figure out what’s going on!

Anyhew…one other cool thing, kind of silly, when I put the large bowl to my ear it sounded like the ocean LOL.

So I’m not quite sure what’s going on with my bowls but I do know I love them and have had so much fun making them. I’m thinking for the next batch I’m going to do what I did for the first and that is include metal scraps in the organic compost mix.  I think I will also add more of the GANS “juice” to the mixture and see what happens.  Each batch has been different!  I’ll continue to share my discoveries and observations.

The intention and source of fascination behind this whole thing with me is my admiration for Dr. Wilhelm Reich and his work relating to orgone energy – a term he came up with to define life force energy.  Here is information and links relating to his work and learning more about him if you are not familiar.

Dr. Wilhelm Reich Orgone Accumulator

Dr. Wilhelm Reich Orgone Accumulator

What Is an Accumulator?

Dr. Reich’s work in psychiatry was always a combination of theoretical work and laboratory experimentation. In Norway in 1935, he made the first attempt to measure changes in the bioelectric makeup of the human body during pleasurable sensations. Told at first that it was impossible to measure such small electrical currents, he developed a new technique for measurement. Thus, he initiated the area of research now known as biofeedback. His original work on changes in the skin’s electric potential initiated the development of today’s lie detector machines.

In late 1939 Dr. Wilhelm Reich came to the United States. One of Reich’s first experiments in his new laboratory in the United States was to try to isolate and explore energy fields unique to living systems. He discovered a device that concentrated this life energy that pervades the environment of an unpolluted biosphere. This life force he named orgone energy.

The device that Reich put together to isolate and intensify this force is called an accumulator. It is made up of alternating layers of organic and non-organic material. Reich explained that the dominant direction of energy flow is always to the inside of the device. There is a continual intensification of this life force on the inside of the accumulator. When someone sits in it, the living energy field of the person interacts with the augmented energy field of the accumulator, and can have measurable effects on the person sitting inside the accumulator.

In the 1940’s Reich used the accumulator in a number of clinical ways. He conducted extensive experiments with mice bred for spontaneous tumor growth. Daily irradiations with the accumulator eliminated these tumors or significantly increased the life span of mice over untreated control groups. Reich also worked with human cancer patients achieving some spectacular results (1). The most serious problem that Reich had was that the tumor mass would break down so quickly that the debris would clog the patient’s kidneys causing renal failure. Today it seems appropriate that the detoxification and elimination diet defined by Dr. Max Gerson could resolve this problem (2).

Reich moved on to explore the use of this concentrated energy in other areas of research. In 1954 the Food and Drug Administration issued an injunction asking Reich to not ship accumulators across state lines until he proved in court the effects he had demonstrated. Proud and independent as he was, Reich did not present himself to the judge, since he stated in a letter to the court that scientific research should not be brought into a political courtroom. The judge imposed the maximum sentence for his failure to comply and Reich died in a federal penitentiary in November of 1957. His books were burned along with all the accumulators the FDA could confiscate. It was a shameful moment in the history of the United States.

In the years following this act of censorship, it was impossible for interested people to obtain an accumulator for their own use short of making one themselves. The information on how to do this is readily available but it is hard to do without access to a woodworking shop (3,4). Although there is one manufacturer of accumulators in the United States, the cost is high once shiping is factored in. It is about the materials that go into construction that makes them expensive, as no one is making much of a profit here. Steel is very expensive right now.

We at Orgone.org believe that if one wanted to use an accumulator on a daily basis, the best thing to do is to make it oneself. Therefore, complete plans are given on this site, along with detailed instructions for assembly. Some sources of materials that we have used are also provided. Wool and cotton are used for the organic layers and steel is used for the non-organic layers, although Dr. Reich used fiberglass for the organic material in his accumulators.

21 Dec 2015 Joey Grether and the Map to Multiplication attributed to Nikola Tesla

I was noticing the vast amount of traffic here for the blogs I posted pertaining to the Multiplication Table that a CBS News article stated came from a recent find of Nikola Tesla papers.  I thought it pertinent to revisit this topic and share a new article I found.

After  reading this article from disclosetv: http://www.disclose.tv/news/longlost_nikola_tesla_drawings_reveal_genius_map_for_multiplication/125599 , it seems like Joey was merely deciphering the discovered diagram.  He was not the author of the diagram.  Read this and then I’ve posted the complete article where Joey explains developing his multiplication teaching tools. There is no mention of the Tesla diagram find in the article.  

Long-Lost Nikola Tesla Drawings Reveal Genius Map For Multiplication – Disclose tv article

“A recently discovered set of original Nikola Tesla drawings reveal a map to multiplication that contains all numbers in a simple to use system. The drawings were discovered at an antique shop in central Phoenix Arizona by local artist, Abe Zucca. They are believed to have been created during the last years of Tesla’s Free Energy lab, Wardenclyffe. The manuscript is thought to contain many solutions to unanswered questions about mathematics.The Sketches were hidden in a small trunk with numerous other drawings and manuscripts ranging from hand-held technological devices to free-energy systems, many with notes scrawled all over them. Some of the pieces are already familiar to the public, but a few others are not. Most notably is the Map to Multiplication or the Math Spiral. Zucca made a few copies and showed the drawings around to different thinkers, dreamers, and mathematicians.A few days later a Local High School Mathematics Instructor, Joey Grether, had been working on deciphering the system and had a few breakthroughs. Grether suggests that the Spiral not only explores Multiplication as an interwoven web, but that it, “offers a comprehensive visual understanding of how all numbers are self-organized into 12 positions of compositability.”“This device allows us to see numbers as patterns, the formation of prime numbers, twin primes, Highly composite numbers, multiplication and division, as well as few other systems, I imagine, that are yet to be discovered.”The diagram itself is very intuitive, allowing students to see how numbers all work together based on a spiral with 12 positions. 12, or 12x (multiples of 12) is the most highly composite system, which is why we have 12 months in a year, 12 inches in a foot, 24 hours in a day, etc. 12 can be divided by 2, 3, 4, and 6. So can all multiples of 12. For every 12 numbers there is a chance of 4 numbers being prime. They happen to fall in positions (think clock positions) 5, 7, 11, and 1.Tesla is known for the quote “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have the key to the universe.” It turns out that when the device is examined, the digital roots of the numbers in positions 3, 6, 9, and 12 constantly repeat the same sequence 3, 6, 9! Is this what Tesla was referring too? The self-organization of numbers and their digital roots?Its hard to say, but Grether seems to think so. “This breakthrough is phenomenal. If we could get students all over the globe to use this technique, to play with it, and help figure out how to use it, we could overcome our cultural aversion to Mathematics. Instead of memorizing the multiplication table, we could learn the positions of numbers and have a better understanding of how they work.”Juan Zapata, One of Mr. G’s students believes so as well… “I used to say I’m bad at Math… cause thats what everyone says, but now, I’m like, dude, this is too easy.”Theres one other fact about the Tesla Spiral that make it interesting. The diagram is dated 12/12/12! 1912. Grether and his students want to turn December 12 into a national holiday. So grab a 12 pack, get a dozen donuts, and celebrate the power of 12x ( via cbsnews.com.co ).

So here is where I get confused.

Here is the article featuring Joey Grether from moebiusnoodles.com from 10 July 2014 where he talks about this table.  He doesn’t mention the Tesla papers find and it seems like he gradually came up with this on his own.  Confusing right?!  When were the Tesla documents found – what does “recent” mean?  I haven’t seen an actual date given for the discovery.  Was the discovery prior to this article on Grether?  If you know, please comment!

1001 Leaders: Exploring the spiral multiplication table

Share Button

Today, our guest is Joey Grether, an unbridled idealist, parent, and teacher. His journey to math play with kids started with designing tools and devices. Have you ever wondered how Montessori designed all the activities with her beads, or how Cuisenaire came up with the base ten rods? Here is Joey’s story about a colorful multiplication wheel that helps children and their adults explore factorization and primes. You can see how the ideas for student activities come up as a grown-up is playing, exploring, and designing.

In our 1001 Circles series, we feature math circles stories from the point of view of a circle leader, who acts as an invisible tour guide. In 1001 Leaders, the companion series to our 1001 Circles, we put the spotlight on the leaders themselves. What got them started and what keeps them going? What are their math dreams and worries? If you lead a math circle, an engineering club, or an informal playgroup, we would like to hear your story or interview you. Write moby@moebiusnoodles.com to talk about your adventures.


Hi there. I am a high school substitute teacher, graphic designer, and parent, with a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I have an 11 year old and a 3 year old. When the 3 year old was a little younger, I decided to work on a project that would combine numbers and letters. I sketched and struggled for a few weeks. One day I was impatiently waiting for something, looking at the clock as I was dividing up the letters for my project. I realized that if I combined the most used triads, ABC and XYZ, I could fit the rest of the letters in pairs around the clock. Once I did that, I knew how to fit other ideas into the circle: months, degrees, seasons, moon cycles, elements, the color wheel, and the music scale. I called the device The Learning Flower.

We have a lot of magnetic toys and puzzles around the house, so I made the Learning Flower into a vinyl magnet project. You can take apart the petals, and put them together again in a round cookie sheet. My 3 year old, Indara, would play with it on and off. Observing her and listening to other parents’ feedback, I made a simpler device with just colors, numbers, and letters. Indara seems to understand that one a bit better, because its middle disk supplies a picture for her to model. Here is a photo of another toddler playing with it, from a review at Tog&Glam blog.

Learning Flower

I was showing the Learning Flower to friends. Some asked me where the math was, and I was kinda thrown back, thinking – math? This tool got 8 overlapping sets of symbols! Why add more? But then I tried anyway. It led me to develop a more complex device, adding days of the week, the periodic elements, and two more layers of numbers. As I played with the clock positions on my screen, patterns slowly began to stick out to me. First I noticed that 15 and 27 were in the 3 o’clock position, then that other numbers there were multiples of 3 too. Hmm… four positions (3, 6, 9, 12) contained multiples of 3, looking like a square. I started tracing other multiples. Then I saw multiples of 4 forming a triangle in positions 4, 8, and 12. Multiples of 2 make a hexagon.

I sketched out the first 12 dozen numbers in a 12-position spiral, using the same positions of the clock. I then tried tracing the multiples of 2, 3 and 4. I noticed there were numbers that just were not part of the first few multiples. I worked on the diagram for several more days, fascinated by the simple patterns. I underlined the numbers that were not a part of the 2, 3, and 4 multiples systems. It turned out that they were primes. The rest of the numbers were prime! And as crazy as it sounds, this realization of how primes are distributed around the 12 positions hit me on 12/12/12! Were all numbers in these positions prime? Mostly. I checked prime lists online to be sure, and all were, except 25, 35, 49, 55, 65, 121… that is, the multiples of 5, 7, 11, and 13. The patterns began to feel more comprehensive.

Since then, I have been developing the device, trying to understand it, sharing it, and presenting it. I started calling it The Number Spiral, but people confused it with the Ulam Prime spirals. On different versions of posters, I call it Number Patterns, 12x Spiral, Web of Compositability, The Symmetry of Divisibility, and Grethers Spiral. Which name do you like the most? My pick and the name of my site is 12x Spiral, because it implies the design.

Why do numbers work like that? As I played with the 12x Spiral, I have developed a theory. For me, and for students using the 12x Spiral, answering that question is the most useful aspect of the device. It leads to figuring out where numbers are placed in each of the 12 positions, by combing the divisibility rules. Every number has a place, and if we can figure out that place, we can figure out what the number’s divisors are. Here are just some of the patterns students can explore while trying to answer that one Why question!

The theory is that numbers are self-organized around the smallest, most highly composite number, 12. The number 12 and many of its multiples (24, 36, 48, 60, etc.) are HCNs: highly composite numbers (with lots of divisors), which are extremely useful for measuring and proportions. Why are there 12 eggs in a carton, 12 inches in a foot, 12 months in a year, 24 hours in a day, 360 degrees in a circle, 60 seconds in minute? Because highly composite numbers can be divided evenly in many ways. For each 12 numbers in one ring around the spiral, there are 4 candidates to be prime. I started calling the 4 positions where these candidates reside the prime fields: positions 1, 5, 7, and 11. When two prime numbers are separated by just one composite number, such as 5 and 7, 17 and 19, or 29 and 31, we call them twin primes.

Here is another way to look at the prime fields. Recall the hexagon, square, and triangle that are the shapes of 2x, 3x, and 4x. The prime fields sit next to the vertical line between the positions of 6 and 12 o’clock, which is the shape of 6x. In other words, all numbers in the prime fields are either 1 higher or 1 lower than a multiple of 6. We also understand this as the equation 6x +/- 1 that, for natural x’s, works for all primes other than 2 and 3 (though not all results of the equation are prime). I found this equation online while I was researching prime number theory.

I like to draw these spirals in chalk or make wall murals. I tried this activity first with my kids, then as math workshops with their friends. I just start drawing a spiral, and color-coding the 12 positions. I make the spirals large, because kids love to run to clock positions or particular numbers when they seek patterns. As the spiral grows, students begin to see where numbers and colors belong. They jump in to help color and draw, making the mural bigger and bigger. You can also use found materials. Once we raked rocks in a dirt lot into a spiral. We invited kids to walk to its center, and to lay out rocks in a triangle shape (like bowling pins) to show more number patterns. Once you start drawing or building a spiral project, it can inspire many math and art extensions.

Now that we are looking at number relationships and tracing the web of multiples, we can explore more complex patterns. For example, let us define a way for numbers to intersect one another. Say, 55 is a product of just two numbers, 5 and 11. Looking at the spiral, mark the multiples of 5, that is, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25… Connect the numbers with lines. They will form a beautiful star. Now follow the multiples of 11, that is, 11, 22, 33, 44, 55… They form a spiral. The star and the spiral intersect at 55 and then at 110. Try it with other primes: observe how the stars and spirals of the numbers 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, and 13 intersect one another.  The stars and spirals relate to spirolaterals and Waldorf multiplication stars, but are also different, so you can explore them separately.

Here is another bridge to number theory, made visible by the 12x Spiral. When only two prime numbers are multiplied, or a prime is squared, we get semi-primes such as 35=5×7 or 49=7×7. The first non-prime exemption in the prime field is 25, which is a semi-prime, because it’s 5 squared. Want to know a neat pattern about primes squared? Find the first few on the 12x Spiral: 4, 9, 25, 49, 121. Starting from 5 squared, they all fall into the 1 o’clock position! In other words, all primes squared (besides 2 and 3) equal 12x + 1. Is it always true? How can you make sure without checking all the infinitely many primes?

Parents and math circle leaders who want to have a casual, easy math experience can start with checking the patterns of multiples. If you want to work with kids, draw the 12x Spiral with them! Or you can print the activity page I have created. Young kids can color, and older students can name each number’s divisors. The 12x Spiral poster is more of a reference, a way to invite math into the homes of kids.

Follow the multiples of 2, 3, and 4. See how their patterns become predictable. Then explore 8x, 9x, and 10x. For a more advanced task, seek links between patterns. For example, 5 and 17 are in the same position, next to one another. Are the patterns 5x and 17x linked? Let us find out! 5×2 and 17×2 are again in the same position, 2 rings apart. Look at 5×3 and 17×3. The same position once more, this time 3 rings apart. Ha. Awesome!

You can find patterns like this through simple, quick sketches. I would like people to get comfortable drawing this model, sharing it, thinking about it, and so, helping develop it! It doesn’t matter if our work is perfect, what matters is if we learn from doing it.

Up to now, we looked at positions to find numbers. The inverse game is more challenging: pick random numbers, and dial them in to the correct position on the spiral. The kids will eventually discover the strategy of using the divisibility rules (see below). For example, your number is 180. It is even (divisible by 2). Cut in half, and the result is still even (180/2=90): this means 180 is divisible by 4. The sum of digits 1 + 8 + 0 = 9, so 180 is divisible by 3. Since it’s divisible by 3 and 4, it’s also divisible by 12, and so it is in the 12 o’clock position. Do it for your birth date, your address, the current year 2014, whatever. Once you become more familiar with placing numbers into the web of compositibility, you will know their divisors at a glance.

Here are the rules of divisibility useful for these games. Knowing these rules, any number can be placed into one of the 12 positions on the spiral.

  • If the last digit is even, the number is divisible by 2.
  • Multiples of 3 have the sum of the digits divisible by 3.
  • Halve a multiple of 4, and the result is even.
  • If a number is divisible by 3 and 4, it is also divisible by 12.

The more you can understand how numbers relate, the easier it is to process them in your head. Say, you need 187 inches of 2×4 for a wall, but the store only sells it by the foot. How many inches do you need to add? How many feet will you need to buy? If you can visualize where the numbers belong, you know 187 is on the ring that is starts at 180 and ends at 192 in the 12 o’clock position. So you’ll need 192 inches, which divided by 12 gives you 16 feet. Many things use 12x as their systems of measure. If you go on a scavenger hunt, you will find examples such as 72 pixels per inch image resolution, or 12 packs of soda with 12 ounces each.

I have recently figured out how to make a simpler game. Print out the 12x Spiral poster for a visual reference, or draw the spiral using the first 36 numbers. Now take a pair of dice, roll them, multiply the numbers, and see how the result fits into the spiral. For example, if you roll 4 and 5, put the first die on the number 4 on the spiral. Now skip-count around the spiral by fours, as many times as the second die shows – in this case, five times: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20. There you are! 4 times 5 is 20. Another example: you got 3 and 6. Put the first die on the number 3. Skip-count from it around the spiral by threes, six times: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18.

I’m sure there are many more ways to use the 12x Spiral, but I can’t figure them all out just by myself! Want to join? For more exploration, prompt students to look for patterns, try to draw some patterns of their own, or see what they notice about individual numbers. On that note, I am still developing this project and noticing new patterns. I am open to any and all ideas. Your and your children’s feedback will be greatly appreciated!

I believe the national math standard is to have 5 year olds know the first 10 numbers. What if I could get 5 year olds to know their number patterns (multiples) all the way up to 12×12? I think I can, but I need some support. The project is all about improving math literacy, and inspiring people to quit saying, “I’m no good at math, or art, or whatever.” Personally, I would love to teach kids that have rejected or are rejected by schools. It seems kind of ridiculous to me, but so far I have had a hard time getting people to understand and appreciate this project. Even educators seem hesitant to introduce the 12x Spiral. I think it’s because this is so new, while curricula are planned out months in advance and handed down from within the bureaucracy.

I would love to travel the world teaching any student of any age the web of compositability – with chalk murals, wall murals, or rocks even. I think this model is more useful than any multiplication table based purely on memorization. The 12x Spiral combines the multiplication table and the Sieve of Eratosthenes, allowing students to see how all numbers work together as patterns. It could resurrect many people’s interest in numbers, patterns, and math. If that’s too much to ask the universe at this time, I would just like more students to try it out. Maybe I could get a curriculum developing grant, or just sell a few posters to get young minds to explore the patterns. My ultimate lifelong dream is to run a 24/7 cultural recreation center.

18 Dec 2015 – What is the truth?! Is the Nikola Tesla Map to Multiplication a fake? Grether’s Spiral? New Organic Orgonite bowl pics

Hello everyone!  TGIF (thank God it’s Friday)!

When I checked in today I had a comment from  Citizen Smith on my post regarding the supposed new discovery of a Tesla document called the Map to Multiplication.  He/she said it was a fake and gave me this link: http://www.moebiusnoodles.com/2014/07/12x-spiral-factorization-diagram/

When I dug further I found the same article and picture.  I couldn’t find anything to say the Tesla document was fake but it’s interesting this Grethers Spiral is out there.  Is the Grether based on the one by Tesla or vise versa?!!!  I couldn’t find much about it.  What do you think?  If you have any info one way or another, please comment!

17 Dec 2015 Discovery of new Nikola Tesla papers, When Women is Boss interview and latest on my organic orgonite experiments

Hello all!  It’s chilly here this morning….actually woke up to frost on the yard.  It’s so beautiful in the sunshine – anything shiny and there I am lol.  Dewdrops too.

Anyhew, exciting news yesterday.  On Facebook a friend posted an article she found from CBS news talking about a recent discovery of papers from Nikola Tesla!  The feature picture for the article, Map to Multiplication is BEAUTIFUL!  After I saw it I couldn’t take my eyes off of it.  I printed it, put in on my Kindle and have it posted in view so I can see it next to my Metatrons cube….they have similarities!

Long-Lost Nikola Tesla Drawings Reveal Map To Multiplication – excerpt

CBS BREAKING NEWS – 11 Dec 2015

A recently discovered set of original Nikola Tesla drawings reveal a map to multiplication that contains all numbers in a simple to use system. The drawings were discovered at an antique shop in central Phoenix Arizona by local artist, Abe Zucca. They are believed to have been created during the last years of Tesla’s Free Energy lab, Wardenclyffe. The manuscript is thought to contain many solutions to unanswered questions about mathematics.

The Sketches were hidden in a small trunk with numerous other drawings and manuscripts ranging from hand-held technological devices to free-energy systems, many with notes scrawled all over them. Some of the pieces are already familiar to the public, but a few others are not. Most notably is the Map to Multiplication or the Math Spiral. Zucca made a few copies and showed the drawings around to different thinkers, dreamers, and mathematicians.

A few days later a Local High School Mathematics Instructor, Joey Grether, had been working on deciphering the system and had a few breakthroughs. Grether suggests that the Spiral not only explores Multiplication as an interwoven web, but that it, “offers a comprehensive visual understanding of how all numbers are self-organized into 12 positions of compositability.”

“This device allows us to see numbers as patterns, the formation of prime numbers, twin primes, Highly composite numbers, multiplication and division, as well as few other systems, I imagine, that are yet to be discovered.”

Isn’t this exciting???!!!!

After I saw this I got a fire in my belly to see if anything new could be found in the wireless tangle of energy cords that is the internet (thanks Nik!) and I found this interview a John B. Kennedy from Colliers did in 1926.  OMG!  So much of what he says in this interview resonated with me.  What he says about us women folk in particular is quite inspiring and way ahead of his time.  I cried after I read this because so many of his visions for us “Queens” and the direction our world could go are still not realized even after all this time.  I won’t lose hope though, he didn’t! (I apologize for the big gap after the title of this article, some kind of format thingy I can’t delete!)

An Interview with Nikola Tesla by John. B. Kennedy – Colliers, January 30, 1926

 

 

The life of the bee will be the life of our race, says Nikola Tesla, world-famed scientist. A NEW sex order is coming–with the female as superior.  You will communicate instantly by simple vest-pocket equipment.  Aircraft will travel the skies, unmanned, driven and guided by radio.  Enormous power will be transmitted great distances without wires.  Earthquakes will become more and more frequent.  Temperate zones will turn frigid or torrid.  And some of these awe-inspiring developments, says Tesla, are not so very far off.

AT SIXTY-EIGHT years of age Nikola Tesla sits quietly in his study, reviewing the world that he has helped to change, foreseeing other changes that must come in the onward stride of the human race.  He is a tall, thin, ascetic man who wears somber clothes and looks out at life with steady, deep-set eyes.  In the midst of luxury he lives meagerly, selecting his diet with a precision almost extreme.  He abstains from all beverages save water and milk and has never indulged in tobacco since early manhood. He is an engineer, an inventor and, above these as well as basic to them, a philosopher.  And, despite his obsession with the practical application of what a gifted mind may learn in books, he has never removed his gaze from the drama of life.

This world, amazed many times during the last throbbing century, will rub its eyes and stand breathless before greater wonders than even the past few generations have seen; and fifty years from now the world will differ more from the present-day than our world now differs from the world of fifty years ago. Nikola Tesla came to America in early manhood, and his inventive genius found quick recognition.  When fortune was his through his revolutionary power-transmission machines he established plants, first in New York, then Colorado, later on Long Island, where his innumerable experiments resulted in all manner of important and minor advances in electrical science.  Lord Kelvin said of him (before he was forty) that he had contributed more than any other man to the study of electricity. “From the inception of the wireless system,” he says, “I saw that this new art of applied electricity would be of greater benefit to the human race than any other scientific discovery, for it virtually eliminates distance.

The majority of the ills from which humanity suffers are due to the immense extent of the terrestrial globe and the inability of individuals and nations to come into close contact. “Wireless will achieve the closer contact through transmission of intelligence, transport of our bodies and materials and conveyance of energy.  “When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole.  We shall be able to communicate with one another instantly, irrespective of distance.  Not only this, but through television and telephony we shall see and hear one another as perfectly as though we were face to face, despite intervening distances of thousands of miles; and the instruments through which we shall be able to do his will be amazingly simple compared with our present telephone.  A man will be able to carry one in his vest pocket. “We shall be able to witness and hear events–the inauguration of a President, the playing of a world series game, the havoc of an earthquake or the terror of a battle–just as though we were present. “When the wireless transmission of power is made commercial, transport and transmission will be revolutionized.  Already motion pictures have been transmitted by wireless over a short distance.  Later the distance will be illimitable, and by later I mean only a few years hence.  Pictures are transmitted over wires–they were telegraphed successfully through the point system thirty years ago.  When wireless transmission of power becomes general, these methods will be as crude as is the steam locomotive compared with the electric train.

Woman–Free and Regal

ALL railroads will be electrified, and if there are enough museums to hold them the steam locomotives will be grotesque antiques for our immediate posterity. “Perhaps the most valuable application of wireless energy will be the propulsion of flying machines, which will carry no fuel and will be free from any limitations of the present airplanes and dirigibles.  We shall ride from New York to Europe in a few hours.  International boundaries will be largely obliterated and a great step will be made toward the unification and harmonious existence of the various races inhabiting the globe.

Wireless will not only make possible the supply of energy to region, however inaccessible, but it will be effective politically by harmonizing international interests; it will create understanding instead of differences. “Modern systems of power transmission will become antiquated.  Compact relay stations one half or one quarter the size of our modern power plants will be the basis of operation–in the air and under the sea, for water will effect small loss in conveying energy by wireless.”

Mr. Tesla foresees great changes in our daily life.  “Present wireless receiving apparatus,” says he, “will be scrapped for much simpler machines; static and all forms of interference will be eliminated, so that innumerable transmitters and receivers may be operated without interference.  It is more than probable that the household’s daily newspaper will be printed ‘wirelessly’ in the home during the night.  Domestic management–the problems of heat, light and household mechanics–will be freed from all labor through beneficent wireless power.

“I foresee the development of the flying machine exceeding that of the automobile, and I expect Mr.  Ford to make large contributions toward this progress.  The problem of parking automobiles and furnishing separate roads for commercial and pleasure traffic will be solved.  Belted parking towers will arise in our large cities, and the roads will be multiplied through sheer necessity, or finally rendered unnecessary when civilization exchanges wheels for wings.

The world’s internal reservoirs of heat, indicated by frequent volcanic eruptions, will be tapped for industrial purposes.  In an article I wrote twenty years ago I defined a process for continuously converting to human use part of the heat received from the sun by the atmosphere.  Experts have jumped to the conclusion that I am attempting to realize a perpetual-motion scheme.  But my process has been carefully worked out.  It is rational.”

Mr.  Tesla regards the emergence of woman as one of the most profound portents for the future.  “It is clear to any trained observer,” he says, “and even to the sociologically untrained, that a new attitude toward sex discrimination has come over the world through the centuries, receiving an abrupt stimulus just before and after the World War. “This struggle of the human female toward sex equality will end in a new sex order, with the female as superior.  The modern woman, who anticipates in merely superficial phenomena the advancement of her sex, is but a surface symptom of something deeper and more potent fermenting in the bosom of the race.  “It is not in the shallow physical imitation of men that women will assert first their equality and later their superiority, but in the awakening of the intellect of women. “Through countless generations, from the very beginning, the social subservience of women resulted naturally in the partial atrophy or at least the hereditary suspension of mental qualities which we now know the female sex to be endowed with no less than men.

The Queen is the Center of Life

“BUT the female mind has demonstrated a capacity for all the mental acquirements and achievements of men, and as generations ensue that capacity will be expanded; the average woman will be as well educated as the average man, and then better educated, for the dormant faculties of her brain will be stimulated to an activity that will be all the more intense and powerful because of centuries of repose.  Woman will ignore precedent and startle civilization with their progress. “The acquisition of new fields of endeavor by women, their gradual usurpation of leadership, will dull and finally dissipate feminine sensibilities, will choke the maternal instinct, so that marriage and motherhood may become abhorrent and human civilization draw closer and closer to the perfect civilization of the bee.” The significance of this lies in the principle dominating the economy of the bee–the most highly organized and intelligently coordinated system of any form of nonrational animal life–the all-governing supremacy of the instinct for immortality which makes divinity out of motherhood. The center of all bee life is the queen.  She dominates the hive, not through hereditary right, for any egg may be hatched into a reigning queen, but because she is the womb of this insect race.

We Can Only Sit and Wonder

THERE are the vast, desexualized armies of workers whose sole aim and happiness in life is hard work.  It is the perfection of communism, of socialized, cooperative life wherein all things, including the young, are the property and concern of all. Then there are the virgin bees, the princess bees, the females which are selected from the eggs of the queen when they are hatched and preserved in case an unfruitful queen should bring disappointment to the hive.  And there are the male bees, few in number, unclean of habit, tolerated only because they are necessary to mate with the queen. When the time is ripe for the queen to take her nuptial flight the male bees are drilled and regimented.  The queen passes the drones which guard the gate of the hive, and the male bees follow her in rustling array.  Strongest of all the inhabitants of the hive, more powerful than any of her subjects, the queen launches into the air, spiraling upward and upward, the male bees following.  Some of the pursuers weaken and fail, drop out of the nuptial chase, but the queen wings higher and higher until a point is reached in the far ether where but one of the male bees remains.  By the inflexible law of natural selection he is the strongest, and he mates with the queen.  At the moment of marriage his body splits asunder and he perishes. The queen returns to the hive, impregnated, carrying with her tens of thousands of eggs–a future city of bees, and then begins the cycle of reproduction, the concentration of the teeming life of the hive in unceasing work for the birth of a new generation.

Imagination falters at the prospect of human analogy to this mysterious and superbly dedicated civilization of the bee; but when we consider how the human instinct for race perpetuation dominates life in its normal and exaggerated and perverse manifestations, there is ironic justice in the possibility that this instinct, with the continuing intellectual advance of women, may be finally expressed after the manner of the bee, though it will take centuries to break down the habits and customs of peoples that bar the way to such a simiply and scientifically ordered civilization. We have seen a beginning of this in the United States.  In Wisconsin the sterilization of confirmed criminals and pre-marriage examination of males is required by law, while the doctrine of eugenics is now boldly preached where a few decades ago its advocacy was a statutory offense.

Old men have dreamed dreams and young men have seen visions from the beginning of time.  We of today can only sit and wonder when a scientist has his say.

I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did.   Yesterday I went into the next phase of my organic orgonite bowl experiments.  They look good so far!

 

16 Dec 2015 Dreams, Star Wars film release, holiday blues, Music Maker Lap harp and pictures of my latest organic orgonite batch

Hello world – hope this finds you whenever and wherever in a good place!

I wanted to share a couple of dreams I had last night and this morning.  One of my favorite places is in the land of dreams.  Sometimes my mind and wherever dreams come from (whatever or wherever they tap in to) makes memorable ones.

The dream I had just before getting up was in Italy.  I was in Italy (visited there for “real” back in the 1990’s) I walked to where I thought the Vatican was but just came to and saw a maze of small brown roof topped buildings that seemed like a maze.  When I was there for real, my ex, his parents and I had stayed in a brand new motel, so new it was still having final touches put on it, within walking distance of the Vatican.  So I think that’s where I thought I was in my dream.  Anyways, I couldn’t see the Vatican at first but then when I looked to my right I caught a glimpse of  a white building bathed in bright sunlight.  I yelled to it, “Hello Papa Pope!” and blew a kiss.  Then I turned and flew away….I had to catch my plane!  The alarm went off to get up just after lol.

The dream I had after I went back to bed this morning (I’ve been doing that more) was of communicating with neighbor Suzanne Michelle Sullivan, who died last October via my laptop computer!  This is funny because back in August I had thought about how the Internet might be a way to communicate with people we’ve “lost” here in whatever dimension they go to afterwards…or….whatever dimension they are in where the people we are right now have never met that version of the person.  Hope that makes sense.  The multi-verse thing?  So anyways, we were chatting about meditation, stones that were good for it etc. and then I saw her on Skype-like video and she was laughing and goofing around with someone who was on a sliding computer chair.  She had on a black sweater like she did when I had a dream of being with her before she died and had lost consciousness to communicate with us, and had been able to tell her I loved her.  She mentioned being able to communicate with her grandbabies and was very happy.  She looked just like I remembered her when she was with us.  I can remember thinking I wished I could save the video as I never had any video or pictures of us together when she was here.

Neat dreams huh?  I like dreams when they are positive like these.

I’ve been tired a lot lately and sleeping more.  I’m not taking Adderall everyday (doctor approved) unless I really feel like I need it.  I think this might be the explanation for being more tired.

I haven’t felt as strongly about doing things (gumption)—even really caring (a.k.a case of the f-its).  I have felt, and Kyle has too, apathetic, angry, “jaded” about the world and find myself wanting to completely retreat from it…stop communicating with anyone…letters, email, Facebook…here.  Just shut down.  I do not feel like it’s almost Christmas in a good way.  I feel jaded, betrayed and resentful about what everything like it has become and feel so powerless at times to change it.

My most recent peeve is with Disney.  The reason was the release of Star Wars with a review embargo.  Kyle is a life-long Star Wars fan but like me, we’ve been watching the franchise get really “whored” out, something Disney has always been very good at is marketing their products to the extreme (so many cheezy products everywhere in advance to promote it…hoopla).  Whenever there is this type of thing the “I think thee doth protest too much” phrase pops in our heads….are they over franchising in advance to cover the bills if it flops?!

Kyle and I typically don’t see a film until we’ve seen reviews especially after getting burned so many times in the past couple years when we’ve decided to go see a film without regard to the reviews — Avengers Age of Ultron and Jurassic World for examples….they sucked!  SO!  We’ve decided not to go see it until we see reviews from “normal people”.  As of right now, Rotten Tomatoes has given it a whopping 97% approval rating.  It could be a legitimate rating but we’ll see.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/star_wars_episode_vii_the_force_awakens/?search=Star Wars

It sucks and is Debbie Downer making to be “awake” sometimes.  I tossed my rose-colored glasses about the world in the trash a long time ago and I wish I hadn’t sometimes.  Is ignorance bliss?  Lol…if it is, why are so many people having mental health problems and unhappy?!  Hmmmmm.

I think my spending so much time “plugged in” lately to social media and the news hasn’t been good for me.  I should have learned my lesson by now but it seems the only way to stay in touch with most people these days is by using Facebook or the like.  Thankfully I have my two pen pals, Mom and Lesley but I’ve done a really shitty job lately of reciprocating their gifts!!  Sorry Mom and Les!!!

AAACK!  SO!  LOVE, GRATITUDE (Kyle and my furry kids especially), outside time (DANCE)and a lot of internal swash-buckling back bad renters is what’s tethering me these days AND yesterday my present from Kyle arrived…my Music Maker lap harp….MUSIC….the other savior.   I had one before but had given it to Kyle’s youngest brother Cole (don’t know if he even still has it) and missed it ever since I did that.  Kind of like the guitar thing I mentioned in a few blogs ago.  So yesterday I was able to spend some time with it and I am so pleased with it.  The music from it is more soothing for me that my drum is.

Will close for now…thank goodness right?!  Debbie downer.  In the pics below I have included the crude GANS health pen I made and the process of making my latest batch of organic orgonite.  I had an “aha” on how to almost get it exactly like Dr. Reichs and will show you later.  Right now I have the mixture drying to a consistency like clay for pots.  It’s too wet yet to shape into bowls.

Love and hugs through the wires to you…LOVE, GRATITUDE, DANCE and MUSIC…..if you are in my frame of mind this holiday season…find these “gifts”….it might help.

 

8 Dec 2015 Voices of change – Religious Tolerance and Bernie Sanders comments on Climate Change

Hello out there — hope this finds you in good health, loved and loving!

Before I start, I know the topics of politics and religion are polarizing.  My intention is not to divide us but to unify us.  I saw this on Facebook this morning and perhaps it will illustrate where I’m coming from with a post like this:

Nor are you born a Republican. Democrat, Independent, Libertarian...any political label

Nor are you born a Republican. Democrat, Independent, Libertarian…any political label

We need to put on our thinking caps!

Recent polls for the 2016 Presidential race are producing some very unsettling trends….two people I neither respect or trust are leading – Donald Trump for the Republicans and Hillary Clinton for the Democrats.  I am a registered Democrat.  I do not want another dynasty in the White House and I think putting Hillary in office would be a mistake.  She changes her views on issues like I change my underwear…lol…sometimes more than once a day!  Nobody else seems to be registering in the numbers (one poll tracking page I found):

http://www.electionprojection.com/presidential-elections.php

Has this country gone insane?  Donald Trump?!  Really?!

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/south-park-kills-donald-trump-rape-article-1.2372596

To me the Republic ticket looks like a roster kept at a mental hospital and they just let them all go.  I’ve done two tours in one….I know!  What scares me even more….the American public is supporting them.  Why?  I think a big part of it is the successful manipulation by mainstream media (funded by Corporations with political agendas) that want us to be afraid and to take extreme measures from a place of fear.  Fear is a powerful motivator that will drive people to do things they will later regret.

I am voting for and supporting candidate Bernie Sanders for many reasons.  I don’t know if he were to be elected that he’d get half of the things he wants to do done, but it’s worth a try.  President Obama had some bold claims and visions of what he wanted to do in office and has had to fight his way through bullshit the whole way.  Honestly, I doubt Bernie would have any easier time of it.  Anyone who knows how American politics works, knows the people we choose aren’t running or deciding shit.  Henceforth….a big pile of Apathy.  This said, if anything he can show the American people even more clearly, if they’ll pay attention in their current blind state of apathy, what is really going on in Washington and our country.

This morning I saw this video clip from Bernie’s Face the Nation interview and what he says here really brings the issue of climate change home.  What side of history do we want to be on with this issue?  Do we really want to be left saying to our future generations we had the ways and means to make this planet better but we didn’t do it?  For money, power and prestige on the part of the “masters” and because of apathy on our part?  Two basic things you can do to promote change – walk when you can instead of driving and be conscious consumers when it comes to buying products using fossil fuel.

Bernie Sanders: U.S. has a “moral obligation” to battle climate change  – Face the Nation on CBS

The other article of interest I saw today was this from the Dalai Lama, another man I respect, about religious tolerance and how education is a key to obtaining it.  I also believe that children, as soon as they are “cognitive” should be given the choice of if they want to be part of a religion or political party.  I believe freedom of choice is part of responsible parenting:

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Tolerance-is-areligious-says-Dalai-Lama/articleshow/50069874.cms?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=TOI

“BANGALORE: At a time when the intolerance debate is raging, the Dalai Lama argued that tolerance is areligious and an intrinsic part of every religion. Compassion and forgiveness are universal and must be inculcated in modern societies, he added.

The Tibetan spiritual leader was delivering the first National Institute for Advanced Studies (NIAS) Distinguished Fellow Lecture at the institute’s premises on Sunday. “The only hope that we have is education. An education that can produce healthy minded people, who can be compassionate and forgiving,” Lama said.

The present education system breeds material values, he said. “That a joyful, happy life is everybody’s desire is indisputable. But to achieve the same, one has to learn how to be com passionate and forgiving,” he said, citing two examples of an American rich friend who is worried despite his economic prosperity and a monk from Barcelona (in Spain) who was happy despite not having the world’s perceived riches.”

Good tip for today.  When I was in AA we learned the acronym HALT.  If you find yourself restless and quick to temper, this word might help you “check yourself” and improve your mood.

H-Hungry, A-Angry, L-lonely and T-tired.  If you find that you are experiencing any one, or all of these things, addressing them might help!

7 Dec 2015 Believer discretion – The tragic story of Debunked Psychic James Hyrdrick, Miklos Jakos, the Amazing Randi and James Van Praagh

This morning I was revisiting the subject of telekinesis and psychic powers. Since my previous blog about my trying this out for myself, I have had much success pushing paper…not like when I was a personnel specialist in the Air Force (basically a secretary who moved paper for a living). I was lead to visit the skeptic’s side of the house. The first video I’ve linked showing skeptic Amazing Randi testing then renowned Psychic James Hydrick on the television show hosted by Bob Barker called That’s My Line. Watching this lead me to the others I’ve linked.

The story of James is extremely tragic. After he was exposed as a fraud and interviewed, he revealed his disturbing childhood and how this affected the course of his life. This story is a great one to speak to the perpetrators of violence in our society today. The elusive WHY I keep talking about us needing to get to so we can stem more mass shootings and violence in our world. James said he “wanted to be known” because in the course of his young life he was treated like a dog, literally. For a time he was called “Spot” and tied up and fed in the yard instead of the house!

An informative article from The Tribune in 2013 if you want to learn more about him:

http://www.sanluisobispo.com/news/local/crime/article39444981.html

The case for psychic powers is pretty shaky! My own personal experiences with having readings done by people claiming to have psychic powers a.k.a mediums has been mixed. Out of all of the readings I have had may be one where the reader used Runes was even remotely accurate. I have to ask myself if he was accurate or if I wanted him to be! Self -fufilling prophecy sort of thing.

As a self -proclaimed Empath, a person with a high degree of sensitivity to emotional and physical energy from other people, places and things I often question my own abilities simply because I know myself and how “my stuff” can get mixed up with interacting with other people’s stuff. Sometimes it’s easier to believe I’m picking up somebody else’s “stuff” than facing my own. I’ve never had a dream, written or drawn something as precognitive without having to get “validation” afterwards. More things haven’t been validated than have been. More times than not when I’m doing energy work and or “empath work” it is like therapy more than anything else. I believe once emotional/spiritual pain is “relieved” a space is made for physical healing and personal growth. I believe in the power of suggestion and people are healed or “read” if they want to be healed or read. In the biblical story of Jesus, he said “your faith has healed you.” He knew about this power and I think used it in his work.

I believe we all have “abilities” beyond conscious acknowledgement. Some people are more conscious and in touch with these shared abilities. Some people abuse this awareness to take money from the less “awakened” and this is a discredit to those of who don’t.

Writing this isn’t meant to discredit anyone who is conscious and uses their gifts to help others. I just caution those who take advantage of these types of people, people who profit from sharing their gifts, to use discernment and go into the situation educated…aware of the “tricks of the trade” beforehand. I do not accept money for what I do. Then again, I have not chosen to share my gifts to support myself either! For some, using and sharing gifts like this are their “bread and butter.” Many gifted people I know and love in the Holistic healing community do support themselves this way. I want to believe they are honest and transparent with their clients unlike the mediums and psychics in these videos and so many other “charlatans” out in this world.

Viewer, “experiencer” beware. Leave your gullibility’s at the door.

Here is an article I found to outline some of the main techniques when getting a reading to be aware of and watch for:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/speaking-in-tongues/201201/tricks-the-psychic-trade (highlights from article)

  1. Naming is a fundamental part of any psychic medium reading. The medium mentions a common name, in order to find willing subjects for readings.
  2. Once a subject has been chosen, the medium attempts to validate the reading by supplying detail. Firstly, they guess the cause of death. Some mediums claim to be medical intuitives or empathetic; that is, able to feel the physical pain and symptoms of a living or deceased subject’s illness, enabling diagnosis, or identification of the cause of death.
  3. This is followed by more validation in the form of a psychic reading of the deceased, and usually the subject too. Mediums give horoscope-like personality readings that use Barnum statements. These involve generalizations about character that can apply to many people. For example,
  4. Then they list a number of objects and occurrences that could be meaningful to most people: Rebecca Rosen mentioned a ring with a reset stone, a necklace with a broken clasp, a broken zipper, a rainbow, a broken phone, and carrying spare change. These are non-specific items that give the illusion of specificity.
  5. Mediums often claim the spirits communicate via sights, sounds, and even smells. This frames the spirit world in a way the living can understand, as an extension of the natural world. John Edward claims most of his messages are visual; the spirits point to parts of their bodies to reveal their cause of death, or show him something to communicate to the subject.
  6. These strategies tailor the reading to fit the subject, meanwhile making the subject do the work by making the connections. This is a process known as subjective validation, when the subject finds personal meaning in the reading.
  7. I saw Sylvia perform live in Salt Lake City. She gives a lecture to her audience and then does some select individual readings, choosing her subjects via a raffle ticket system.
  8. It is a game of hits and misses, although the “hits” aren’t indicative of accuracy, they are merely perceived as correct. It is common for mediums to deny the misses by turning them into hits, even if they have to blame the subject
  9. Or the medium blames the dead for his or her mistakes. During James van Praagh’s appearance on Larry King Live he was asked to explain why he’d said a person had been deceased for ten years when they had died only a year before.
  10. What happens is more than likely, because you’re dealing with frequencies of energy the spirit might not know how to communicate,” Van Praagh answered. “There’s a skill to it. They might send thought to my mind very quickly; I might not be fast enough to pick up the exact translation of what they’re saying. So that’s how that works. I’ll hear like Mary and it’ll be Marie or Nikki and it’ll be something else.6
  11. After nailing down a name, guessing a cause of death and validating the reading for the subject, the medium closes the reading. Most finish with a simple yet personal stock message, such as, “He loves you”.

James Randi exposes James Hydrick – Rational Response Squad

Today James Randi still offers a $1 million prize to anyone who can prove they engage in paranormal activity, the prize used to be $10,000. Over the years James Randi has seen hundreds and hundreds of entrants, and for some astonishing reason absolutely none of the people can perform their paranormal acts under controlled conditions that take cheating out of the equation, hmmmm I wonder why. Time and time again the frauds(I mean psychics) have to come up with lame excuses as to why their con (I mean powers) won’t work in a test. Here you see James Hydrick perform his “miracle” and 10 minutes later fail at the same miracle when cheating is taken out of the equation.

Talking to the Dead: James Van Praagh Tested – Skeptic Magazine (Miklos Jako)

Published on Jul 26, 2013

James Van Praagh and other practitioners of so-called “channeling”R­12;communicating with deceased people—have consistently avoided James Randi’s Million Dollar Challenge test to prove their psychic abilities. In this video, Miklos Jako, a knowledgeable layman, tests Van Praagh’s ability simply by having a session with him and analyzing what went on. The results, though not strictly scientific, are pretty conclusive, as well as entertaining. Miklos Jako is a retired teacher, who has investigated religion and related topics all his life. He is the author of Confronting Believers (Infinity Publishing). He graduated from Phillips Academy, Andover, MA, and Colby College, ME.

James Randi – Secrets of the Psychics Documentary (Full)

Published on Nov 17, 2012

See 2 hours of Randi here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpeN3… James “The Amazing” Randi is the perfect mix of Science and Magic, a true conjurer of visual machinations that can fool our senses while, at the same time, explaining to us how our senses are fooled. In my opinion this is the best example of a “human mind debugger”, he gets right into the machinations of analog tricks and sees how our brains mistakenly manifests them as a possible reality. Randi also teaches us that illusion and trickery may be comforting to the human mind, but truth is far much more wonderful as it shows us the machinations from the chaos, the sense as well as the awe in both the tricks and the real world. For several decades, Randi has gone on to expose hundreds of psychics and teach millions across the globe about how they could be fooled into believing in a system which could potentially make them vulnerable to trickery and perhaps psychical harm. Randi is not afraid to go against popular opinion, as shown in his battle against so-called psychic Uri Geller in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. Randi has also gone against the bizarre practice of faith “healing” and contacting the deceased, and has exposed the cruel, callous and cynical nature of the people who claim to be performing “God’s will”, such as Peter Popoff. Randi has also warned us time and time again about the fraudulent practice that is homeopathic medicine and how it is essentially water solution, dished out as hocus-pocus medicine. James Randi is the founder of The James Randi Educational Foundation, an organisation that attempts to bring reason to world by luring potential psychics into a trap, baited by a million dollar prize to prove their psychic “powers”. “powers” here is a kind of vague term,as Randi knows, so the tests are usually on the so-called psychic’s terms. No self-acclaimed psychic has ever won the prize. Whether or not some form of psychic power exists is still an open question, however many psychics often do not properly gauge their so-called skills and instead brag about them, hence scepticism about such claims should not be so strange to their ears. Unfortunately the vast amount of psychic powers they have seem to remove all self-esteem as many psychics are often uneasy about Randi’s reasonable request and attractive million dollar reward.
