Alpha Particles

Radioactive emissions conceived as consisting of two protons and two neutrons travelling together. This could also be called a helium ion. These have a positive charge, travel slowly, and can damage physical matter by contact. They may draw electrons from the environment in order to balance charge. If the environment happens to be within a living body, that body will be weakened.

Alternating current (AC)

  2. When a pseudosphere of magnetic field lines and a catenoid of a surface of associated electric field lines interact to form a toroid. (Kovac)

Beta Particles

Derived from Plato, who probably inherited the concept from Persians, who in turn probably inherited it from Egyptians. The ancient view of vision was very different from ours. It extended beyond mere objects. Ancient philosophers were well-versed in qualitative sciences, and had observed that matter in an ordinary state was radiant. Matter sends out its emanations in all directions, even in the dark. The human & animal eye is a special organ through which the aura is projected. When the mind is properly initiated and exercised, consciousness can actually leak through the eyes, and be projected. When that happens, a very special type of vision occurs. They gave a name to the radiance coming from the eye and from all objects: EIDOLA, which means literally "idea messages". What they're saying is, when the Eidola from your eyes and Eidola from objects meet, that creates perception. One can literally examine ideas which have no physical form, but which nevertheless radiate Eidola. Ideas can radiate Eidola. Descartes restored this idea in his discussions of "Ether".
Eidolic vision is the ancient term; Eidetic is what the term became with the movement from qualitative to quantitative. Eidetic vision includes a special type of persistent afterimage, which has conscious qualities. This is all beyond neurology.
It is an ability to process or reshape remembered forms and images. Memory is a reconnection with real things -- with eidetic or eidolic images.
Eidolic = qualitative
Eidetic = quantitative
Eidetic imagery is carried with a set of lines, as a living thing. (Vassilaitos) NOTE: A similar concept, using different terminology, is developed in the book Scientology 8-8008 by L. Ron Hubbard.

One of the fundamental forms of energy in the Universe. It changes characteristics radically depending on its frequency and wavelength, which tend to correlate closely with each other. Generated in relatively pure form by numerous natural processes such as solar fusion, electromagnetism normally interacts with other energy forms. As of this writing, it is generally thought to travel at a constant speed, known as the "speed of light", or 186,000 miles per second. Larry Spring has demonstrated that electromagnetic energy usually travels through space as an expanding sphere, and will tend to do so until it encounters an obstacle.

When atoms merge into a heavier element. This generates energy across the electromagnetic spectrum. Until 1987, it was generally thought that this could only occur at extremely high temperatures typical of plasmas. Thus, an atomic fission explosion was deemed necessary to generate sufficient heat to produce a fusion explosion in hydrogen bombs. Attempts to fully control high-temperature fusion reactions have, as of this writing, universally failed, primarily due to borderline phenomena related to containment of the reactions. See Cold Fusion.

Gamma Rays

One of the fundamental forms of energy in the Universe. Its operation is not generally understood at this time. Gravity tends to be stable, although some researchers have found it forming into waves on occasion. As a force, it may be either a push, a pull, or both. According to conventional physics, it is the weakest of the four fundamental natural forces, but it operates over the greatest range. It is the observed tendency of material objects to be attracted to each other.

An incomplete atom or a group of incomplete atoms, which thus has a charge. These can be simple, as in negative ions, which often consist of free electrons, or they can be fairly complex, as the nuclei of metal atoms with some or all electrons stripped off. Ions form because of dissociation (e.g. salt in water), strong radiation (UV, x-rays, radioactivity etc.), strong electrical forces (e.g. high voltage on a pointed electrode), radioactive decay, extreme heat, cold fusion and other processes. In general, negative ions have an excess of electrons, and positive ions lack electrons.

Sometimes inventions similar to his are named after him. The primary source of information on his work in the 20th century has been Delta Spectrum Research, headed by Dale Pond.

It can be formed by electric arcing in air, which is why it is often found in significant quantities on the trailing edges of thunderstorms. Ozone will react against parasitic bacteria, and can filter out several high frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.

Philadelphia Experiment

In October 1943, a US Navy ship was outfitted with electronic gear allegedly based on a design by Nikola Tesla. The object of the experiment was to render the ship invisible. According to most accounts, the experiment did make the ship invisible, and also suddenly transported it 200 miles away to Norfolk harbor, where it materialized briefly, and then re-materialized minutes later back in Philadelphia. When the crew came off the ship, they were all incurably insane. This experiment has spawned a great deal of literature.

That frequency is generally given as 7.83 cycles per second. According to some researchers, it may change over time. Several inventors have developed devices which are worn close to the body and constantly impart this frequency to a person, using the theory that having this "correction" in a person's biofield will create a defense against unnatural electromagnetic fields.

  1. Theoretical particle in physics usually connected with cosmic rays. Its name comes from an ancient Greek word for "speed", because it was thought to travel very fast. The particle has never been observed, and the name gradually fell out of favor in conventional physics. More recently, some researchers, inventors, and marketers have revived the term without defining it, which has led to some confusion.

Standard measurement of electrical power, named after James Watt, inventor of the steam engine. This is usually expressed as current (amperage) multiplied by voltage.


Matter or energy with periodic changes in intensity while flowing.


Since humans normally can't directly observe invisible radiations such as electromagnetism, an agreement as to their structure is based on instrumentation applied to electrical circuits. From that, we see certain patterns form on instrument readouts, and we can refer to these patterns as the form of the wave being observed. In many cases, what we are seeing on the readout may only be a cross-section of part of the wave.
In cases where instrumentation is not available to provide a readout of a particular phenomenon, any illustration of the form of the waves involved must be regarded as a good guess.
