TEXT OF READING 440-6 M 23 (Elec. Engr., Student, Christian)

This psychic reading given by Edgar Cayce at his home on Arctic Crescent, Virginia Beach, Va., this 20th day of December, 1933, in accordance with request made by self - Mr. [440], Active Member of the Ass'n for Research & Enlightenment, Inc.


Edgar Cayce; Gertrude Cayce, Conductor; Gladys Davis, Steno. Mr. [440], Mildred Davis, L. B. and Hugh Lynn Cayce.


Time of Reading 5:10 to 5:45 P. M. Eastern Standard Time. New York City.

(Body and enquiring mind, together with information already given him on Aurascope, [See 440-3, Par. 25-A--28-A] improvements on Etheronic machine of Dr. Paul Cold and information received through [Mr. [317]'s writing] on static eliminator - drawings and data are being held by [440]. You will answer the questions which he will ask regarding the theory and construction of each of these machines.)

1. EC: Yes, we have the body, the enquiring mind, [440], and the information that has been given respecting each of these.

2. (Q) First, the Aurascope - diagram in [440]'s hand.

(A) As suggested, the theory of the mechanical device is to determine not only the aura of individuals but to use same in the diagnoses of disorders in various portions of the body.

As is known, the body in action - or a live body - emanates from same the vibrations to which it as a body is vibrating, both physical and spiritual. Just as there is an aura when a string of a musical instrument is vibrated - the tone is produced by the vibration. In the body the tone is given off rather in the higher vibration, or the color. Hence this is a condition that exists with each physical body. In the material things we find that to tone, or to find a tone or the color to the eye, only three colors are necessary to make, for the perfecting of the various shades or tones that may be had in ANY vibration. In any print in nature itself we find these are existent. Hence these set with the absence of color, or with the crystal, in their rotation so that they are turned (by the hand, preferably), being on the same spindle or same manner so that when one turns the other turns also. With these changings of the color there soon sets those vibrations by the beholder, in its active force of beholding or discerning the variations, so that there is set in a practical manner the aura ABOUT the body. To be sure, as indicated, it will necessitate the developing of the psychic forces. Not that it is not positive, but these may be discerned the more readily by an optometrist - or one that looks for the visions, or one that gets tone or color as an artiste, or one that mixes colors. These may the more easily or more readily find or get the response from such a mechanical instrument for determining the emanations in colors from a living organism.

3. Ready for questions.

4. (Q) Are sides of crystal cut perpendicular to XX axis or perpendicular to a face of crystal?

(A) To a face of crystal, though the diagram as seen here is not drawn properly at all, see? You have turned the face so that this would necessitate extra mechanical - and you do not get the value of the flat surface of the crystal or the active force of the colors that are emanated through the eyes in this position! Rather would they be turned crosswise, so that the longer side or portion is as the slit in the eye - or as the vision perceives same, see?

5. (Q) Does the eye see first through the side at right angle?

(A) Eye sees through the side, as the PRISM angle, see?

6. (Q) I do not see.

(A) Through the PRISM angle; that is, either the heavy side or the thin side is encased in a holder that brings into view, see, the full side of the prism glass. See?

7. (Q) The body does not understand.

(A) We have the glass, the prism, see? It is set in a holder, in the rotation or in the manner that has been designated, see? the width, see, the length, see? This set then in the holder, in the way as a willowing fan - as given, see? This, then, on an axis, see - the leaves, you see. These turn as leaves to those portions where the vision or the scope itself of the vision strikes the SIDE - as the angle side, see, or prism side of the color.

8. (Q) Do these prisms rotate toward the eye?

(A) Toward the eye.

9. (Q) What is the rate of speed?

(A) This will depend upon the individual, as given. See, there will be periods, as the rotation is carried on, when NO vision of the color is seen, see? So that the alternate changes of the various colors, as given, makes for the impressions to the optics that reflect back that seen through the vision as set before same.

10. (Q) Is the crystal fixed permanently in its fan-shaped holder?

(A) Fixed permanently, just so that when it comes to that portion of the scope or in the vision it stands at the angle as indicated.

11. (Q) What angle should the X Sub-C axis take with the X Sub-S axis?

(A) As indicated, these would be preferably set by experimentation; for it will be found that minor changes may be necessary, but these are set so that the surface (flat, see) is direct in line for the vision in its observation of the person, individual or body in front of same.

12. (Q) Can you give a substitute for the red blood ruby?

(A) This is the COLOR!

13. (Q) It can be made of glass?

(A) It can be made of glass. ALL should be glass, so that the same character of vision - or altered by the color - is met by the vision of the beholder.

14. (Q) Would this instrument enable photography of the aura?

(A) Enable photography with colored photography, but it would have to be attached to both characters of machines, see?

15. (Q) Will you give a description of the arrangement of the lenses in the end of the scope?

(A) These are only glass, and so set or so arranged that they will meet the needs of the beholder, see? So that they focus as ONE vision and not as looking with just one eye; for, as indicated, each individual's two eyes are not EXACTLY set the same. Some have astignatism, some have MORE astignatism than others, some have the retinae in its rotary astignatism and others have no change necessary. Hence these in the end will necessarily have to be set so they may be altered somewhat, but will only require very little change - but set at the angle so that the focus makes for the vision seen as single and not double.

16. (Q) What is the shape of these lenses?

(A) Well, you would make them rather oblong - to fit rather the scope or the character of the scope that is set for the vision, see?

17. (Q) Can you give the correct division between the Y axis as shown on Figure 3?

(A) As set, the figures here are all wrong! But the distance from the axis or from the vision through the color glass (or clear, depending upon how far it is turned, see) to the plain glass would be six to nine inches.

18. (Q) Second, Static eliminator - data received in [440]'s hands.

(A) We would not alter or change, save we would make for the perfecting of the points where the connections to the leads to the machines, and to the aerial, are made. For, these points should be set so there is the perfect contact in their action, see?

19. (Q) Describe the nature of the crystal.

(A) That set both as a conductor and non-conductor in same, as has been described, so that the activity of electronic or electrical forces in the disturbance to reception will be carried to elimination. This will require a great deal of experimentation, as we find. As to the characters, those that are the best conductors and non-conductors are the better elements.

20. (Q) How much Rochelle Salts should be put in the crystal?

(A) Just sufficient to fill that portion through which there is the conducting of the necessary forces for the carrying out of that desired to accomplish.

21. (Q) Explain briefly the theory of this.

(A) There is the circuit that makes for the receiving or reception of the radio-active forces in the machines that are already made. Then there are those influences in the atmosphere that make for the disturbances that produce the various characters or forms of static forces, see? Then, with the use or the combination in the proportions according to the volume or the number of tubes or the character of reception received, set in such a manner as to create the balance so that there is the less interference by the outside influences through the conducting of the reception through such an instrument - which makes for clearer or clarified reception.

22. (Q) Do you find this static eliminator more efficient than that previously given through this channel? [See [2492] series given in 1924.]

(A) The same principles; they are only conducted in different forms. We would use this.

23. (Q) Is the crystal cast with the wire running through it?

(A) Crystal cast with the wire running through it.

24. (Q) How do you prevent it from melting?

(A) When this is ready to be cast, it may be put in without any disturbance of melting.

25. (Q) At what temperature will the casting take place, centigrade?

(A) Depends upon the character of the fusion in which the glass or the non-conductive properties are used. These would be varying according to these. About 260 to 300 centigrade.

26. (Q) Third, Etheronic machine - drawings in [440]'s hands. Describe the best materials for conduction, induction and transmission of etheronic forces.

(A) These have been given.

27. (Q) What are the proper number of turns of wire upon the coils of this instrument?

(A) These, as we find, would be in ratio to something of the vibration or activity of the vibration of the body itself. This, then, would be necessarily that as would be the general average for the vibrations in the various characters - but this would of necessity mean for white, not for colored - for they would be very different. These would be 3600 revolutions, or 3600 windings.

28. (Q) On which coil?

(A) The inductive.

29. (Q) There are three inductives.

(A) On each one!

30. (Q) What would be the capacity of the condenser?

(A) Sufficient to make for the emanations to raise the vibrations to the individuals to whom it was pointed - in their direction, see? This would reach, or this arrangement would reach for two to two-fifty mils. 3600.

31. (Q) What range of capacities?

(A) From naught to the two hundred. [See Reports, Par. R2.]

32. (Q) Two hundred microfarads?

(A) Two hundred mils.

33. (Q) What is the diameter of the coils?

(A) Sufficient so that the number of wrappings - depending upon the wire or the mil of the wire that is used. These would be two and a half to three inches.

34. (Q) Would these coils be placed as they are in the diagram?

(A) Very little change, as we find, would be necessary as to their position.

35. (Q) Criticise the construction of the aerial.

(A) If these are made rather with the prongs of more pointed and greater in number, as to an upright aerial, be more effective.

36. (Q) Are aluminum and carbon the best substances?

(A) Aluminum and carbon the best substances for sending out, yes - and their ratio of activity or their ratio in the preparation of same would be much as has already been determined for the sending in same. In the inception or reception of same, this may be turned so that they may be had for the induction as well as the influences from without, see? We would change them entirely.

37. (Q) How would you have them?

(A) In loops of copper.

38. (Q) About how large a loop?

(A) If the aerials are raised high, the loops would be three to four inches in each loop; that is, the whole loop measuring around, see; not diameter but circumference.

39. (Q) How many loops would you have? (A) Four.

40. (Q) How far apart would they be?

(A) Four to six inches, just so there is sufficient of the space for the induction.

41. (Q) Would they be in line with each other?

(A) Be almost in opposites from each other.

42. (Q) At right angles?

(A) At almost right angles.

43. (Q) Would the mixture of elements given last time be placed as the crystal?

(A) Be placed as the crystal. This would necessitate that the elements be MOUNTED in such a way that there are no shorts in same, for these elements are VERY strong in their abilities of the emanations that are sent out, see - especially in uranium.

In this setting of same, it would be practically in the same position - though necessitating, to the carrying of same - that these be so they may be tilted somewhat.

44. (Q) Would you describe more fully the method of connecting?

(A) That from the coils to the induction, or the elements, see? That the mounting for the elements combined in the ratio given be set in such a way that it may be turned somewhat with the directing of forces sent OUT, see? or sort of a swivel.

45. (Q) A condenser of 200 mils is almost impossible to make.

(A) Try this with these elements, and see what it runs to!

46. (Q) With which elements?

(A) Elements as given!

47. (Q) In the crystal?

(A) Elements themselves, as we have given; that are used in the present a crystal, but set so that there are not shorts.

48. (Q) Should the variable condensers be made from these elements also?

(A) Should be made. All the condensers should be made from these elements.

49. (Q) In the proportions given?

(A) In the proportions as outlined.

50. (Q) How many windings on the tickler coil?

(A) One-third of those on the other.

51. (Q) And the capacity of the condenser across the coil?

(A) Sufficient to carry this high a voltage as created by the activity of these.

52. (Q) The last time you recommended a galvanic cell. How would this be connected?

(A) Connected with the condensers and to the coils that make for same.

53. (Q) A little more fully.

(A) Be connected directly to the condenser, see?

54. (Q) Which one?

(A) The central one, through which the coils run.

55. (Q) Is my pen on it now?

(A) The CENTRAL condenser. THAT'S it!

56. We are through for the present.
