I got the first two you mentioned - I would be interested in looking at The Book of the Law someday but that wasn't amongst the collection. Gems from the Equinox is another title that the shop received although I'm not sure if I shall purchase that one yet. I have much to read already, so I may just settle, for now, for the two I've already bought.


That's OK, the entire text of The Book of the Law (aka Liber AL) is reproduced in The Law Is For All, which is Crowley's commentaries on Liber AL. (Whew!) Some if it's dry and terse, but other parts have some very interesting philosophical musings. It's the best exposition of Crowley's vision of Thelema to be found in one book. Sadly, some of it is a product of it's time (the 1930s) and would be considered very politically incorrect today. So be prepared to look past those failings. On the other hand, some of it would still be considered very forward-thinking, even today.

Magick Without Tears is a collection of Crowley's letters to one of his last students, written near the end of his life, while he was working on the Thoth Tarot deck. It has some of the clearest, most illuminating observations on the Art of Magick ever written by anybody.

Be on the lookout for books by Phil Hine, especially Condensed Chaos. There's a lot in there that is useful to a radionics practitioner, including a method of creating evoked Servitors with schematic diagrams.

That grabbed my interest. Do you have any more info on this?

A lot of his stuff is posted online to read for free.

Condensed Chaos
http://www.scribd.com/doc/903994/Condensed-Chaos

the same book but with a different title

Oven Ready Chaos
http://www.wytchyways.com/orchaos.pdf

This booklet was originally published by Chaos International
Publicatios as a limited edition of 300 copies. 1992, under the
title of Condensed Chaos. This on-line version has a different
title so as not to cause undue confusion regarding the book
Condensed Chaos, as published by New Falcon Publications,
1995.

Hello Beloved members of this forum !

Very glad to have found it...

I am compelling the 440 series of Edgar Cayce readings (I am a member of Edgar Cayce ARE, Virginia Beach), and as I have a full access to EC readings, I am just preparing a bunch of datas that I will post on the forum concerning the Etheronic Device developped by Dr Paul E. Cold in 1935 with T. Mitchell Hastings ("440" in the readings). With this device, 440 or Hastings found an azurite crystal (lapis linguis / lingua), with a sample put in a witness chamber. People who got readings witnessed they had been healed successfully with the help of this device.

In fact, last week I did not know yet what were psionics and radionics : it is through the readings I understood that Cayce (medium and seer) referred to etheronics and radionics as equivalent wordings.

Such a surprise to type "Abrams" in the database and to find so many entries, with aeter, oscilloclast and so on !

Cayce, or maybe can I say The Guides who expressed through his lips when "asleep" gave the plans of several appliances (radial / radio-active appliance - I've got one and I am satisfied with it, wet-cell appliance, etheronic appliance, and the famous aurascope) ; the aurascope was not realized with succes as materials and knowledge in 1935 were probably not sufficient to give good results.
To get an idea of what Paul Cold etheronic device looked like, one can watch this video :
http://www.edgarcayce.org/are/visitARE.aspx?id=9567 (begins at 12:34)

No Cayce appliance uses electricity (I mean external AC or DC current).

I have commanded on the net several books on radionics and spent some hours in reading ebooks on the subject : woaw ! great, indeed !

As soon as it will be possible, I will post those datas.

Regards,

Didier
ps : if someone is interested in one of the other appliances, just tell me, i will give the links to the readings concerned

I have a book on the etheronic device, though the pictures are hard to see as they are scanned xerox copies. I'm familiar with the wet cell as well, there's someone who makes them, but I can't remember who.

Hi Sorynzar,

Yes, a little book on the Cold etheronics device exist, sold buy delta spectrum or something like that, with a part of the concerned 440 readings, but i imagine or guess that are not included the 443 series (443 was hastings -440- mother), nor the 32 results on radionic and 62 on etheronic from the search database.
I imagine the idea of some kind of schematics draw the buyers to this little book, but I have heard they are quite deceipt.
I saw the photos of the devices you and Josephmax realize : absolutely superb, brass, copper and wooden boxes give both a retro and luxurious look : great !
There are 3 sellers of wet cell appliances, maybe 4, recognized as serious (all in the USA).

Hereunder is a sample of what I mean:

W. LINDSAY JACOB, M.D.
360 Van Drive
Pittsburgh 37, PA

Mrs. Gladys Davis Turner
In care of A.R.E.
Virginia Beach, Virginia

Dear Gladys:

I am enclosing specifications and a circuit diagram of the
device [etheronic machine] made by Dr. Paul Cold and
described in the [440] Series of readings. I obtained these
after spending a very enjoyable week-end in ... visiting with
Mr. [440].

I talked with Colonel Frank O. Adams when he came through
town a week or so ago, and he said that he would relay my
request for a complete reproduction of this particular series
of readings. I would greatly appreciate obtaining these
inasmuch as, now that I have the above-mentioned data, I can
make sense out of many of the readings that were obscure
because of this missing data. If for some reason you can't
do this at the present time, please let me know; and I will
come visiting.

I want to thank you ever so much for your prayers. They must
be pretty good. Presently, my personal life is working out
without too much difficulty. Thanks again.

Sincerely,
W. Lindsay Jacob

Enclosures

11/6/63 Enclosure by Dr. W. Lindsay Jacob -

SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE PAUL COLD [ETHERONIC] MACHINE

The machine is a large wooden box with Bakelite front. The
inner dimensions of the cabinet are one foot wide, 6 1/4
inches deep, and one foot one-half inch high. The cabinet is
topped by a cylinder (to be described in detail) which is in
turn topped by an antenna made of carbon rods, one foot long
and one-half inch in diameter. At the top of this carbon rod
is mounted in copper three one-half inch carbon rods that are
two inches long and pointed at the ends like a sharpened
pencil. These three rods are mounted in a fanlike bracket
made of copper.

The cylinder is seated in a hole in the top of the cabinet,
and its copper foot touches the copper plate of the drawer.
The outside of the cylinder is Bakelite. It has a copper
foot on the bottom which is mounted by a beveled screw that
goes through the bottom layer of circular iron discs as well
as the bottom of the cylinder. The carbon rod fits into a
one-half inch well at the top of the cylinder, which well
extends through the outer layer of Bakelite, the first layer
of iron discs, and the second layer of Bakelite.

The cylinder is composed of a sandwich arrangement of six
layers of iron discs, seven discs (three inches in diameter)
to a layer, that are painted black. Each series of seven
discs is in turn separated by a Bakelite insulator,
approximately one-fourth inch thick.

The outer dimensions of the cylinder are four inches in
diameter wide and three and one-fourth inches high. The
copper foot extending from the bottom of the cylinder is one
inch long and, after approximately one-fourth inch, is cut
into a bar approximately one-eighth inch wide. The foot is
one-half inch in diameter. It rests on the copper plate over
the drawer in the cabinet, and there is also a copper sleeve
that separates the copper plate from the top of the cabinet.
The plates inside of the cylinder are all resting freely with
approximately one-fourth inch between them and the walls of
the cylinder. However, the plates at the very top of the
cylinder that surround the well for the carbon rod are held
in place by a felt ring between them and the outer wall of
the cylinder.

On the front of the cabinet towards the top is a small drawer
four inches long, three and one-half inches wide, and one and
one-half inches deep. It slides in between a one-eighth inch
copper plate on top of it and of approximately the same plane
dimensions and one-sixteenth inch aluminum sheet underneath
it.

Beneath the drawer is mounted a large three-inch coil, inside
of which is mounted a two-inch coil, inside of which is
mounted an ironbar magnet, circular, three-fourth inches in
diameter, and six inches long. The inner end of the magnet
faces the right side of the cabinet when you are facing it.
On the front wall of the cabinet are mounted three variable
condensers with rather elaborate scales on them. The two
outer ones consist of ten fixed plates and ten movable
plates, three inches in diameter. The middle one consists of
seven fixed plates and seven movable plates, three inches in
diameter. The coils are wound with very heavy copper wire
that is about one-eighth of an inch thick and an aluminum
wire that is about one-sixteenth of an inch thick. The outer
three-inch coil has seventy-two turns of aluminum wire and
four turns of copper wire on it. The inner two-inch coil has
nineteen turns of copper wire on it. There is a lead of
shellacked fine copper wire about the gauge of ordinary bell
wire coming from the sixth turn of the inner coil to an iron
plate mounted under the detector plate, the dimensions of
which are approximately four and one-half inches wide and
three inches deep. This iron plate is separated from an
aluminum plate by one-fourth inch of wood or Bakelite. The
aluminum plate is of the same dimensions.

The detector plate is a Bakelite board mounted three-fourth
inches above the aluminum plate.

There is a Carborundum crystal mounted on the side of the
cabinet towards the bottom. It is attached to both ground
plugs and the aluminum detector plate on one side and the
outer terminal of the left variable condenser on the other
side. It is labeled as No. 30 Carborundum Detector by the
Carborundum Company of Niagara Falls, New York. Its number
seems to be ARF45G, price $1.50 (in 1932).

See circuit diagram as to how the thing is wired.

See Source File Key #440 for photographs and circuit diagram
in re 440-16.

Get me some diagrams (and hopefully photos) and I'm sure I could build one of theses devices.

440 readings + 443 ones (440 mother) + reports of readings lead to think there were several diagrams : as those diagrams (the whole of them) [Source File Key #440 for photographs and circuit diagram ]...are not accessible directly to the source file key, I guess ARE must be asked to send those diagrams... the more I advance in searching and the more I think the need to go to Virginia Beach is necessary.
Just one think : I draw tarots, and sincerely it helps ; as I wanted to find an appliance rather close to Paul Cold's one I was drawn to a very 'simple' 7 dial black box (Neal Glasson, England) on ebay, drew tarots and asked if this one was very close to Cold's one and the answer was yes ; I asked if the ones I could see on the net recently were close too and the answer was no ; I paid then received this machine, but the 'manual' is a four pages one and no indication is given, and sincerely I don't want to open this black box !
Concerning the ARE readings search engines, the entries concerning etheronic(s) + radionic(s) are close to one hundred, plus the whole 440 + 443 series readings, that's big work... I am occupied (I have a society to manage) and 2 invalid children so my 'free' time is counted, but I will try to sum up all this material when it will be possible.
Just one word concerning the external sources of AC and DC current for such appliances : they don't seem accurate ; nevertheless I was surprised to find in the readings references to Abrams Oscilloclast... and appliances which used external current but what seems evident is the fact that Cold's etheronic machine had not the same goal than all the appliances you could find between 1920 and say 1938/40 which purpose was mainly to heal.

@armel35:

Does this 7 dial black box seem to work for you? Have you manifested anything with it?

Have you, since this posting, found anything you like better?


Thank you.
