Journal of the American Institute of Homoeopathy-Sept, 1953.
The subject matter of this paper has been collected from eminent authorities, it being my privilege to be allowed to sit in on annual meetings of the American Institute of Radiation of Belmont, California, where such men as Hans Barth. eminent German authority on physics, Drs. Carl Young of the University of California, Corbett of the University of Maryland, Cronan of Johns Hopkins University, Ray Miller of Harvard, Linford of the University of Utah, and Jensen of the University of Nebraska, all Ph. D.s whose research coincides with that of Harold S. Burr of Yale University, and William E. Boyed, our eminent homoeopathic scientist of Glasgow.
Another eminent authority who has contributed much to this work is Morton Whitby, Member of the Royal College of Surgeons; Cosulting Surgeon, St. Margarets Hospital, London.
One of the most outstanding authorities who has contributed unlimited time and also considerable of his wealth to this research is Mr. S.S. Knight of Petaluma, California, who for thirty years conducted research for the United STates Steel Corporation and Mr. H.H. Holmes, for years conductor of research for the Bell Telephone Laboratories. This paper embodies part of the reports of the annual meeting of this eminent group of men.
First, let us recognize the fact that the universe is composed of atoms. Thus, all living matter, whether animal or vegetable, must also be composed of atoms. This means, of course, that the human body is an aggregate of billions of atoms, all responding to the laws of physics and chemistry. Iron, phosphorus, sodium potassium, copper and all the other mineral aggregates respond to the same laws inside the human body as outside the human body. Einstein has made the statement the matter and energy are one and the same.
Energy can be converted into matter and matter into energy. Among the most remarkable of statements is that musical chords can be converted into chemical compounds, and chemical compounds again returned to musical notes. The greater the divisibility of matter, the greater its energy output.
Some years ago the Bell Telephone Laboratories of New York City, endeavoring to find some way to send a hundred voice over the same wire at the same time, discovered that human bodies radiate or vibrate. It is well to keep in mind that radiation, frequency and vibration are one and the same. The outstanding scientist for the Bell Telephone LAboratories who made this discovery decided that it might be possible to measure the wave length of the human body as well as its rate of vibration.
He finally succeeded in discovering that the human bodys rate of vibration is eighty million cycles per second which is equivalent to a 3.66 mater wave length. As you all know, the rate of vibration or frequency of electrical energy that produces the ordinary lights which light up our houses is a sixty cycle current, or sixty vibrations per second; thus the rate of frequency or vibration of the human body is far beyond the range of the human eye.
The great importance of this discovery was not realized until such men as Mr. S.S. Knight and others in the field of human research decided that this discovery would be of inestimable value in the treatment of the sick and that, if the human bodys rate of vibration is 3.66 meters, anything different from 3.66 must be disease. With this information at hand, the noted researchers proceeded to build a machine which would duplicate the energy of the human body. A machine was finally built which embodies a damp wave. A damp wave is only a spark or an arc.
At one of the meeting I attended, a discussion arose as to the types of vibrations produced by the machines on which Mr. Knight was working. When the question came up as to what Mr. Knight thought the energy might be, he responded that from his understanding of energy from vegetable and animal matter he considered that the energy produced by the arc – actuated machine was the same as that produced by potentization of remedies for homoeopathic use. My surprise was so great at this remark that I still have hardly recovered from my elation.
In discussing this matter with Mr. L.N. Hampton of the Bell Telephone Laboratories of New York City, I asked how many different vibrations there would be in the human range, and his reply was “Oh, just billions, and billions and billions, and more billions after that.” Further discussion of this matter with Mr. S.S. Knight brought out the explanation of the action of the homoeopathic potency in the treatment of the sick on the basis of physics.
First, when any mass or disease is acted upon by any frequency or vibration, it tends to degrade or shorten the frequency of that mass of disease. This means the cure of disease, and is true whether it is a growth, an infection, or any other type of disease. A statement made by Mr. H.H. Holmes of the Bell Telephone Laboratories seemed an explanation of the action of a homoeopathic remedy. He stated that when vibrations are identical and meet each other in opposite directions they are neutralized. In other words the vibration of a disease is met 180 degrees out of phase by the like vibration of the remedy which, of course, is a demonstration of similia.
There are machines now in existence which will duplicate the same energy as that produced by trituration and potentization. One of these machines, as the present time, is in the research laboratory of the Belmont Group of researchers, as well as at Yale University.
Dr. Linus Pauling, president of the American Chemical Society and Chairman of the California Institute of Technology, states “Within every atom and every molecule there flows electric currents and every substance is a system of electro-magnetic fields”. And yet, quoting Dr. Harold S. Burr of Yale University, “every living things is a storage battery charged with energy we call electricity. All of the seeds, plants and animals we have tested show a direct relationship between electric potentials and vigor.”
With delicate instruments capable of measuring power currents of one – millionth of one volt and less, Dr. Burr and his assistants have traced and measured power – patterns through the plant and animal world. They found characteristic individual patterns in each type of life.
Here let me explain that each individual, being somewhat different from every other, would make it necessary to find different remedies to meet different humans, because each individual has its own and specific and characteristic vibration or frequency which must be identical to that of the remedy which is prescribed.
In human beings, Dr. Burr has proved the “right side of the body is almost uniformly positive to the left side by several millivolts, although this bears no discernible relation to handedness.”
Again here we have a demonstration of Hahnemanns statement that some remedies act right – sidedly, such as Lycopodium and others, such as Lachesis, affect the left side of the body. Also here we have proos of the electrical current of the body. A remedy, to be right – sided has to provide an opposite polarity. Lachesis must be the opposite polarity of the body or it could not affect it.
Further, Dr. Burr has made the statement that the right index finger of a woman increases its “positive polarity” by several thousand microvolts on the day of ovulation, then drops to monthly low during the menstrual period 14 to 17 days later. Since similar records from pregnant females show “entire absence of such cyclic phenomena”, it is probably safe to assume that simple electric measurements may someday replace all present methods of birth control and fertility determination.
Dr. Burt has also stated that sudden increases or break – downs of electrical circuits in all forms of life an indication of abnormal and highly dangerous conditions, as borne out by experiments with cancerous tissue.
Drs. Walter R. Miles and Lloyd H. Beck of Yale Universitys psychology department have demonstrated an experiment that leads them to believe that the “sense of smell” is another electric power form, actually a broadcast by the nose of infra – red rays in the 7.5 to 14 micron bands.
Dr. Harold Lampert of the Medical School of Yale University, H.F. Newman and Ralph Eichorn of Beth Israel Hospital, New York City, began to bombard the gall bladders of sick rabbits and dogs with high frequency sound tones of a specific wave length. All of the animals had severe gallstone conditions. Treatments with the sound wave, lasting from five to sixty seconds, crumbled the pebbly gall – stones and enabled them to pass painlessly from the body. Examinations revealed no damage to the surrounding living tissue. These tremendously important experiments are being extended to human beings.
I might go on indefinitely citing eminent authorities who discuss physics in relation to human energy in the cure of the sick. There is but one law of cure and that is the law of cure and that is the law of similia. This is being proven daily by physics and physiology departments of the great universities, seventeen of which I have visited and discussed physics in its relationship to disease. Homoeopathy is destined to be revived by the physics and physiology departments of the great universities, much to the humiliation of our national and international associations, unless we take prompt action to see that this relation of physics to the cure of disease is a pure application of Hahnemanns teachings.
Instruments are now in existence which can be used to measure the energy of potentized remedies. Not only Arndt of columbia, and Schulz, the great German scientist, have declared that crude drugs destroy life processes, but not the Baruch committee, headed by Dr. Ray Lyman Wilbur, has declared, after years of investigation by 400 of the most outstanding scientists of the United States, that drugs are to become obsolete. With this mind, let us act promptly.
Homoeopathy has been on the decline in America for some years, and now it is being rapidly adopted in Europe. In France, homoeopathic remedies have been admitted to the official Codex. In Switzerland, increasing interest is being maintained in the same sphere. News comes of great activity in homoeopathy in India and Pakistan, and in South American countries. In Britain, homoeopathic hospitals are now in full co – operation with the general scheme of the National Health Services.
Perhaps the most important advance of all, in Britain was achieved when the royal assent was given to that act of Parliament which sealed the incorporation of the Faculty of Homoeopathy, Homoeopathic hospitals will therefore be able to maintain their independent specialities without the danger of becoming engulfed in the ramification of administrative control, and education in homoeopathy will be able to continue with all the more certainty with the hospitals to help.
French homoeopaths are in close contact with the Curie Institute for Radiology regarding the effect of their remedies. As a matter of fact, the father of Pierre Curie, discoverer of radium, was a homoeopathic physician.
At the University of Washington, Mr. H.H. Holmes, long in the research laboratories, gave much of his time to interest the physics and physiology departments of the medical school of this University to see the relation between physics, as it is applied in the arc – actuated oscillator which duplicates homoeopathic energies, and homoeopathy, according to Mr. Knight. It was with the greatest humiliation that I was unable to interest out national and international associations sufficiently to support the Northwest association in its endeavor to place a homoeopathic department in the University of Washington.
Mr. Royal Dr. Rood, brother of our esteemed Dr. Marian Belle Rood, has stated that the American drug industries believe that they have finally won a seventy – five year war to destroy the practice of homoeopathic medicine; but the battle has only begun. Strategy is needed. Urge the American Institute of Homoeopathy at this meeting to appoint a committee, headed by Roger Schmidt, actively to pursue a program which will acquaint the physics and physiology departments of the various universities with physics as it is applied in the cure of the sick.
It is now known that the human brain contains approximately 10 billion neurons. Each neuron, science now believes, contains an electrical charge which it uses to accept an idea, a sight, a smell, or to create the various forms of physical response. Dr. Otto Lesser, M.D., PH.D. Berlin, in his excellent work entitled “Critique of Homoeopathy”, is in excellent agreement with the facts of physics. In potentizing substances into a state of higher remedial activity, we do not need the introduction of any hypothetic force. We have sufficient support from the knowledge of physics on action and energy. Radiation can be produced by mechanical procedures such as trituration, which he designates as tribo – luminescence, and these radiation effects can be observed, and can be transmitted by the receipient.
To demonstrate further the power of high potencies, it is known from elementary physics that increased surface, greater distance formed by an indifferent medium, dialectric and electro – lite, and greater regularity in the arrangement, all tend to elevate the level of the potential energy.
Dr. Morton Whitby, in his epoch making book entitled, “Theory of Life, Disease and Death”, has stated in his introduction:
My researches over the past six years have convinced me that life exists only because of the electrical energy which is within the living substances, whether it is a seed, a blade of grass, a leaf from any plant, including the human body. The electrical energy of living matter is the sum total of the collective tissue energy.”
Here again I wish to state disease must be treated by the totality of the symptoms, and there is no such thing as a local disease. Dr. Whitby further states:
“The difference between inorganic and organic matter is that in the former, electrical energy is static, whereas, in the latter, it is dynamic and fluctuates with its altered chemical and physical states”
From the foregoing it is evident that Hahnemanns concept of dynamis is a demonstration of our present under – standing of the electric energy present in potentized remedies, and his application, one hundred and fifty years ago, interpreted in present day physics, means that the electric energy of the remedy meets the disease 180 degrees out of phase. Thus, similia is proven.
