Classic Radionics

Diagram of classic radionic instrument

In the context of this article, “classic” radionics refers to the original black box style instruments developed in the early 1900’s by pioneers such as Dr. Ruth Drown, George de la Warr and Bruce Copen. Although originally simple in circuitry, various elaborations have been offered over the years. These include printed tuning cards, multiple tuning banks, amplification and biofeedback inspired operator interfaces. One recurring theme is mitigation of the subjective element in “diagnostic” mode. However, when closely examined, most are strategies to either value add or boost customer confidence. Because all rely upon the same practiced intuitive ability, real life outcomes are equally achievable with a legacy device.

Being a niche product, radionic instruments are traditionally priced far in excess of the value of included components. This disparity may be obscured by “must have” features and a deliberately perpetuated mystique. Self-builders are therefore chronically faced with a lack of consensus and technical detail. To help resolve this situation, the diagram above acutalises the metaphysical premise with an overlay of electronic hardware that distinguishes this modality. It is this conscious superposition of thought and feeling, reinforced by tactile sensation, that unleashes the will of the operator as a manifestational force.

Summary of Operation

Radionics is a mechanised synthesis of dowsing and human desire for change. To begin, a symbolic representation of the intended beneficiary is placed within the receptacle. Our generic approach allows for two methods for programming the applied influence.

The first performs a detailed analysis of the subject of interest and, in doing so, identifies the most direct path of influence. It relies upon published “rate” books that list numerical correspondences for a wide range of physical entities as well as modes of activity. In the “classical” system, the latter are often denoted by the first numeral being a multiple of ten. One by one, rates deemed most pivotal to the purpose at hand are dialed in on the tuning bank. An affirmative dowsing response to any indicates its presence. A quantitative readout of between 0-10, can then be dowsed while slowly rotating the “intensity” knob. Leave any knob not in use on “0”. Once the most relevant rates have been thus determined, they are individually broadcast according to a daily schedule. A rate to strengthen is dialed in as-is. On the other hand, dissipation of a negative state requires subtracting each digit from ten. For example, 20.7386 inverts to 80.3724.

The second method does not require existing rates. Holding one’s preferred outcome in mind, each knob is rotated in sequence until a “yes” response is experienced. If none occurs, leave that knob at “0”. The instrument is now in broadcast mode, petitioning the pre-material ethers to manifest the desired physical result. Monitor progress ongoing using the intensity knob. Further information can be found on the Magneto Radionics page, including an alternative 0-100 tuning system and how to utilise the acrylic plate for tactile dowsing response.

Basic Construction

For simplicity, the diagram at the beginning of this article shows the control panel from top down. In other words, the potentiometers (“pots”) and series connected wiring beneath are in x-ray view. To avoid having to mark the panel, use standard 0-10 270 degree, top-hat knobs. Alternatively, enlarge and print out the prepared artwork from the Dowsing Tools page. Because manufactured low profile enclosures are rare, one is best custom made from wood with top and bottom of plastic sheet or composite board. The input and output posts are optional, serving to externalise the respective functions of the receptacle and plate.

Be aware that “improvements” by other builders may represent self-imposed strictures, or at best artifacts of subjective bonding with their machine. However, one basic improvement worth implementing is to route the wiring through an on/off switch and battery powered LED. The resulting current flow enlivens the circuit by initialising a counter flow in the ether. In this case, it is preferred to wire the pots in parallel to lessen overall voltage drop.

Going a step further, power the LED with the ELF oscillator diagrammed below. At the beginning of each session, adjust its generated frequency by dowsing to establish an operational link between the instrument, operator’s brain waves and real time activity of the planetary field. To add electromagnetic field entrainment, replace R3 with a similar value relay coil fastened to the underside of the reaction plate.

As described by Walter Russell, matter is composed of two forces in a state of reciprocity, one generative and one radiative. Conduction of the latter by wire, or telekinetic link, is the basis for radionic transfer of the active component of any given substance. Once it achieves preponderance, the opposing polarity is invoked as a creative impetus. As a specific example, this can be applied experimentally to preparation of simulated homeopathics. Insert an originating substance in the receptacle. Adjust the intensity knob according to the potency indications above. Place a bottle of distilled water, containing a few drops of gin, on the stick plate. Alternatively, connect an immersion electrode to the output post. Remove after a few minutes. Discard originating substance. For non-medical training purposes only.
