Forces of Nature
The discovery recently submitted to the
Paris Academic de Medicine by Dr. H.
Baraduc, in which he succeeded in photo
graphing thought impressions, is a most
important one. It is a scientificadmission
of what the Hindus have always known
and taught, and makes one more guide
post for the West in trying to arrive at •
real knowledge of man ana nature.
Some amusing deductions are made,
however, by the press of the world as to
what the new discovery proves. The
statement of the New York World that
it proves that "vital force, vitality,
thought, or whatever you may choose to
call it, is a physical force, not spiritual or
metaphysical at all," is preposterous.
Western science has never investigated
anything except the physical side of life.
It knows practically nothing of psychol
ogy, or the many tine forces which exist
in nature.
The finer forces of nature are almost
wholly unknown to the modern scientific
world, and the few recent discoveries are
not rLhtly understood. In India and
other Oriental countries we still retain
some knowledge of the hidden powers,
which knowledge was conferred upon hu
manity during the infancy of the earth.
But even there but little of this knowledge
is in the possession of the masses. The
greater portion is guarded jealously by the
priests, and they only impart it to appli
cants in the course of initiation into their
mysteries.
The X ray, the photographing of sound
and of thought prove the existence of a
hitherto unknown realm. It has extended
the sphere of electrical knowledge and
brought to view the field of vibrations.
These three discoveries are closely allied
to each other. They bring a super
physical force into the possession of
science. Science has passed beyond the
realm of ether, the fifth cosmic element,
and is now concerned with interetheric
forces.
In order to determine the position be
longing to this new force or forces one has
to turn to Oriental philosophy, where
definite statistical facts may be gleaned, j
The deeper philosophy is veiled in al
legory, but the general scope of evolution
and a somewhat detailed account of the !
plane of substance immediately beyond
physical matter is readily accessible.
The foundation cf the force which is
us d in thought photography may be
found by a study of what are called the
tattwas; or, matter in an ethereal con
dition. The writer does not profess a
complete Knowledge of these ethereal
bases of .ature, for that cornet only
through initiation, but the exoteric teach
ings are sufficient to give a general view
of the process of evolution and the inter
action between the various planes of
being. Briefly this may be sketched as
follows:
Lying back of all manifestation is
space — absolute, abstract space — tbe first
postulate to be considered in trying to
analyze the process of manifestation of
life and being. Space is shoreless, bound
less, of unimaginable circumference. It
possesses the quality of constant and
ceaseless motion, and this motion has
been given the name of the Great Breath.
Extending throughout space and coexten
sive with it is Mulaprattriti, spirit matter,
or, to put it roughly, the essence of con
sciousness and substance.
The Great Breath acts upon the subtile
matter scattered throughout space, and
there arise certain centers or modifications
known as the three aspects of Mahat
(idealism), these aspects being respectively
the logos, word or speech ; fire or action ;
and, lastly, the germinal essences of the
elements. From the last are emanated the
tanmatras or the potentialities of gross
matter; from the tanmatras come the
inahabhutas or tattwas — matter in an
ethereal condition — and the tattwas in
turn evolve the sthulabnutas, or the five
forms of cosmic matter — ether, air, fire,
water and earth.
It is from a study of their tattwas that
definite knowledge may be had concern
ing the forces utilized in Roentgen's X
ray and in the recent experiments in
thought photography.
There are seven of these tattwas, but
as two of them are secret they cannot be
given:
A kasa tattwa; sonoriferous, having the
attribute of sound, and the parent of the
ether of science.
Vayu tattwa; tangiferous; taste; parent
of air.
Tejas tattwa; luminiferous; color: par
ent of fire.
Apas tattwa; gustiferous; taste; parent
of water.
Pritbivi tattwa; odoriferous; smell;
parent of earth.
The term akasa is generally translated
into English by the word ether, but by
reference above it will be seen that while
a correspondence exists they are not the
same, akasa being the first of the five
tattwas and ether the first of the five
cosmic elements. Akasa has also been
held by science to be the medium for the
transmission of light, but its nature places
it far above the plane of tejas tatiwa, the
lurainiferous "ether." Akaea tattwa is
all-pervading, and from its vibrations are
produoed sound. In the telephone and
photopbone we have the phenomena
of the transmission of sound. It
is clear that the rays which carry
such sound are not the visual rays
of the sun. They are audible rays, the
vibrations of the sonoriferous "ether."
The vibrations themselves never cease,
and we can sense them whenever we pro
vide proper media for their transmission.
As to the nature of vibration it should
be understood that each tattwa has a par
ticular form of its own. In Rama
Prasad's erudite work on "Nature's Finer
Forces," we find these vibrations ex
plained in minute detail. In akasa
tattwa the external form of the vibration
is something like the hole of the ear:
The matter which is subject to it is
thrown into the form of a dotted sheet:
The dots are little points which rise
above the common surface, so as to pro
duce microscopic pits in the sheet It is
said that it moves by fits and starts, and
moves in all directions. The impulse
falls back on itself along the line of its
former path, which lies on all sides of the
direction of the wave:
Each tattwa produces in gross matter
vibrations similar to its own, and the form
into which vibrations throw the atmo
spheric air is a true clew to the tattwa
which is for the time predominant. The
secondary quality of akasa is space, the
interstices between the microscopic points
serving to give space to the ethereal
minima and affording them room for
locomotion.
The vibrations of vayu tattwa, tangifer
ous "ether," are described as being spheri
cal in form, and its motion is at right
angles to the wave. On paper these vibra
tions would be represented thus:
Locomotion is a quality of this tattwa,
for motion in all directions is motion in a
circle, large or small. When to the motion
which keeps up the form of the different
tattwas is added the stereotyped motion
of vayu locomotion is the result.
Tejas tattwa, or luminiierous "ether,"
has been confounded with akasa by many
scientists, as they considered akasa and
"radiant matter" to be identical. It is
true that the phenomena of light woufd
have no explanation were it not that there
is a "luminiferous ether," and the vibra
tions of this tattwa produce light, but it is
quite distinct from ooth akasa and the
cosmic ether. One may ask, if these vi
brations produce light, and this tattwa
pervades all space, why is it that light is
not produced to our eyes in a dark room.
The real fact is that we must make a dif
ference between the vibrations of the
tattwas and the vibrations of the media
which transmit these impressions to our
senses. It is not the vibrations of the
tattwas that cause our perceptions, but
the ethereal vibrations transferred to dif
ferent media of gross matter. Our senses
are at present attuned only to catch im
pressions from physical sources and we
cannot directly perceive the subtile centers
from which the impressions are indirectly
derived. The luminiferous ether is pres
ent just as much in the darkened room as
in the space without. If we could succeed
in bringing ourselves en rapport with the
real condition of things the darkened
room would cease to be dark with us. We
are not yet able to see the vibrations in
the tattwa without some medium of rela
tion between ourselves and it.
In this luminiferous ether lies the ex
planation of the discoveries so recently
made. In the case of the X ray a certain
quality of electrical force is used which
enables luminiferous ether vibrations to
react upon the media surrounding, and
the molecules of wood, iron or of the
human body are thrown into a similar
rate of vibration, lighting up the mass of
physical matter and permitting an un
obstructed vision through it. In the case
of thought photography a film or sensitive
plate of such quality has been prepared
that it is able to catch the vibrations of
light and color that are projected toward it.
A film has been discovered that is capable
of being transformed into the tejastc
vibration. In addition to light and color
this tattwa also transmits vibrations of
heat. The vibrations take place at right
angles to the direction of the wave. This
makes the tattwa wave in an upward
direction, and the center of the direction
is, of course, the direction of the wave.
One whole vibration of tejas makes the
figure of a triangle. In this figure —
A B is the direction of the wave; B C
the direction of the vibration; and CA
the line along which (seeing that the sym
metrical arrangement of the atoms of a
body are not changed) the vibratory atom
must return to its position in the line A B.
Expansion is a quality of tejas tattwa.
This naturally follows from the shape and
form of motion which is given to this
ethereal vibration.
Apas tattwa, or gustiferous "ether," in
shape resembles the half-moon, and is
said to move downward. Its direction is
opposite to that of tejas tattwa, and this
force causes contraction. It possesses the
quality of smoothness. As the atoms of
any body in course of contraction come
near each other and asiume the semi
lunar shape of the apas they easily glide
over each other. The very shape secures
for the atoms easy motion. It is repre
sented —
Prithivi tattwa, odoriferous "ether," has
the quality of cohesive reactance. This,
it will be seen, is the reverse of akasa.
Akasa gives room for locomotion, while
prithivi resists it. This i* the natural re
sult of the direction and shape of this vi
bration. It covers up the spaces of the
akasa with its quadrangular shape:
This is said to move in the "middle."
It neither mores at right nor acute angles, j
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, JULY 26, 1896.
JKe Aii-skip That a Rochester Man Is Building
A telegraphic dispatch to the New York
Herald gives some interesting particulars
of a great airship that is being constructed
in Rochester, N. V., and which the ex
perts believe will at last solve the problem
of aerial transportation.
The inventor and owner is John F.
Cooley, and i.c has entered into a con
tract with P. P. Dickinson of Rochester
whereby he agreed to construct an airship
and accomplish at least four ascensions
during the present year. The contract
specifies that the ship shall be 200 feet
long, with a sail area of 14,000 feet, and
capable of carrying at least six persons.
Work upon the ship is well under way,
and without the intervention of unfore
seen contingencies the first ascent will be
made within the next six weeks. Mr.
Cooley describes his machine as follows:
"The principles and forces employed in
nor up nor down, but moves along the
line of the wave.
According to the above classification
physical matter is limited to the cosmic
elements, and of these only the four lower
ones— air, fire, water, carth — are purely
physical. The fifth— ether— is semi-mate- j
rial, and is hardly known yet, that which j
has usually been called ether being, as '
stated, the tejasic tattwa. It is said that i
toward the close of this cycle ether will be
seen in the air, and that it will dominate
over the purely physical elements during
the whole of the succeeding cycle. There
are still two other cosmic elements — of a
superphysical nature — which at present
are entirely beyond human perception
and will not become known until ages
hence.
The tattwas are composed of matter, but
not of physical matter. It would be more
coavenient to use the term substance in
describing them, and this term may prop
erly be used in reference to all planes of
being up to that of pure spirit.
In trying to determine between matter,
substance and spirit, and whether any
particular object is referable to the physi
cal plane or to a higher one, it may be
advisable to remember that there are four
great planes of existence: Physiological, i
mental, psychic and spiritual. For each j
of tbese planes there are appropriate
vehicles of action. In the physiological
the cosmic elements; in the psychic, the j
tattwas and tanmatras; in the mental,
there are vehicles or bases for the
manifestation of thought, which are
closely allied to, but above, the bases on
a psychic plane; while on the spiritual
plane substance is of so fine a texture that
it is impossible to describe it with any
words known to the English language.
There is actually a substance utilized
when one thinks, but it bears little corre
spondence to physical matter. Each
thought is composed of substance, just as
a table is composed of wood. Thoughts
thus possess forms, depending on the na
ture of the thought, and they persist as
entities for a greater or less lefigtb of time
after they are projected from the mind
which gives them expression. These
thought entities may travel with more
than lightning rapidity. One can think
of the sun or of the pol« star as quickly as
he can think of New York or Chicago, and
no sooner is a place thought of than the
thought is projected to that place.
If a man thinks of his wife, his child or
his friend, there is instantaneously formed
in his mind a subjective image of that per
son, corresponding in clearness with the
intensity of bis thought, and depending
also on his knowledge of the appearance
of the person.
In the experiment cited in regard to
two friends of Dr. Baraduc, in which Dr.
Hasdeu went to bed at Bucharest at an
the construction are entirely unconven
tional and thoroughly original. Those
who have noticed the flight of birds, such
as the eagle, the hawk, the albatross and
others of unusually well developed powers
of flight, may have observed that very lit
tle movement of the wings is necessary to
enable them to maintain a continuous
flight of considerable length, the wings i
meanwhile being held apparently in a
fixed position as regards the body of the
bird. The bird's wings act as an inclined
plane of very slight angle, and cause a
downward deflection of the air from the
lower surface, thereby creating a sight
lifting tendency all over the under surface
of the wings.
"The sails I made and attached to the
model after studying numerous designs
and modes of attachment, thereby ascer
taining their different characteristics. For
agreed hour with a photographic plate at
his head, and Dr. Istrati went to bed at '
the same hour at Campana, 300 kilometers
distant, and willed that his likeness
should appear on the photographic plate
at Bucharest, the result proved to them
that thought could not only be photo
graphed, but photographed at a distance.
Dr. Istrati either consciously or un
consciously formed in his mind a subjec
tive picture of himself and wished or willed
that it should be transferred to the photo
graphic plate. The result appears per
fectly natural to Eastern students. The
only thing on which the result of the ex
periment depends is whether a proper re
ceiving media is procured. With this in
hand and an effort of will on the part of
the transmitter the experiment is quite i
sure to succeed. It would seem, however,
that the photographic plates are capable
of improvement. They are not sufficiently ;
sensitive, for it is reported that in some ;
instances two hours were required to pro- j
duce the pictures. When the proper re- i
ceiving media are obtained the photo
graphing should be instantaneous.
Regar ding the points delineated by Dr.
Baraduc that when the magnetometer was
held near the left side of the body the
needle was repulsed a distance of five de
grees, and when near the right side it was
attracted through an arc of twenty de
grees, it presents a problem in the study of
the magnetic and electrical forces of the
body which should lead up to something
further.
The statement volunteered to the New
York press to the eftect that Dr. Baraduc
has photographed a soul as it emanated
irom the left hand n incorrect. It is im
possible now to go fully into this subject,
as it would involve a study of the several
souls in man and of the various auras
surrounding him and the emanations
of various kinds that proceed from him.
The astral body — or, rather, bodies, for
there are several of them— are loosely de
nominated souls, but these would not pass
out through the left hand. There are also
various thought bodies nlao grouped
under the generic term "soul," which
may be projected by man, but their point
of egress from the body is not the left
hand. One might, however, by effort of
the will, project some of the vapors or
magnetic fluids of his body through the
hand, or such a result might ensue auto
matically if a sufficient excitation were
set up by the proximity of a magnetom
eter, or from some other especially nerv
ous or magnetic cause.
If we admit the fact that mind stuff,
thought substance, is of an electrical na
ture—and this seems to be borne out by
experiments in hypnotism., mental sug
gestion and mesmerism, in which con
sciousness has been transferred to a sheet
of paper or a glass of water, and thoughts
the sails I finally selected the design
shown in the cut as offering the most ad
vantages from the standpoint of equi
librium, lightness and small resistance,
combined with great supporting strength.
When I finished I had a model of a type
of airship which satisfied me that I was
on the right track. In fact, the model
when thrown from the hand would soar
for 150 feet or more in beautiful fashion,
holding its course until its forward mo
mentum was exhausted.
"The material that is being pat in the
ship, which is now under way at Charlotte,
is principally basswood and pine. For
the cordage and rigging manila rope and
steel will be used. The beam is six feet
and the depth of hnll eight feet, making
the interior of the ship, which is entirely
inclosed, about the size of an ordinary
streetcar.
of different kinds excited by applying
magnets to the patient— it does not follow
that thought is physical or that the con
scious soul is a product of matter. Elec
tricity is not a physical force, though
when proper media are secured physical
effects may be produced by electricity, i
Thought force is as much finer than elec- !
tricity as the latter is finer than day. j
Thought substance is of an interetheric
nature, much finer than what is known as
astral matter, but on proper conditions
being effected it will set up vibrations in
the tattwic essences, and these, in turn,
react on the grosser elements of chemistry,
so that the thought image is projected into
objectivity and made visible to the physi- I
cal eyes.
In connection with thought photog
raphy it may be recalled that successful ■
attempt.* have also been made in photo- j
graphing sound, Professors Halleck and
Muckey of Columbia College having made
a number of satisfactory tests. The ra
tionale of this is similar to the experi
ments with thought. Both sound and
thought as well as color manifest as
modes and rates of vibration and on being
projected toward the objective plane they
assume definite shapes dependent on the
vibratory wave, and the forms become
visible when the proper media are fur
nished for their expression.
Mechanical contrivances have also been
lately invented which transmit thoughts
from one mind to another, and when the
mechanism has been attached to an ani
mal the wires have even conducted to the
human brain the feelings of anger, mo
roaeness, pain or joy as they were suc
cessively excited in the dumb brute.
The natural media through which
thought affects physical matter is an inter
etheric substance of a highly electrical
nature, which is known generally as the
astral light. This light is septenary, the
several planes bearing a close relation to
the various tatt was, and the nearer science
arrives at a knowledge of the electrical
forces as they exist on these subtle planes
of existence, the lower of which are semi
material and the hiehest purely spiritual,
the nearer will they come into -a knowl
edge of the nature and action of thought.

Tke Probability
Of Future Long
Distance Vision
What a great help it would be to the
Goddess of Justice were she able to extend
her optical powers beyond the limit of
human vision. Supposing that when
some lynx-eyed official in a distant town
had taken into custody a phantom Dun
ham, it were possible to ring up the San
Francisco Chief, and then to stand the
suspected culprit in front of a little box
connected with a wire with the Police
Office here, so that Captain Lees looking
into the little box at his end of the will
could see the party posing in tront of the
distant box. What a saving of expense
and settlement ot uncertainty !
What a help to commercial transactions
if it were possible for a man having a
check drawn by a maker who resides in a
distant community, to be able to step into
a bank, and then calling up the maker
of the check, have him identify his work
and the payee to the satisfaction of the
cashier!
What an immense satisfaction it would
be to the man to be able to see the tele
phone girl that is giving him taffy and
delay!
The desire is not at all an unreasonable
one. Its gratification is strictly within
the bounds of possibility, for recent dis
coveries have made it extremely probable
that before the close of the century devices
will be in use whereby a person may s<je
his distant correspondent with as perfect
vision as he now hears his voice by means
of the telephone.
The telectroscope (tht, name is formed
from the Greek words "Telos," afar;
"electros," electricity, and "scopis," I
see — "I see afar by the aid of electricity")
is an instrument which in its operation
converts light into magnetism, the mag
netism into electricity, and then trans
mits the electricity over a conducting wire
to the distant station where another in
strument reverses the process and con
verts the electricity into magnetism and
the magnetism into light again, the opera
tion proceeding almost precisely on simi
lar lines as those employed -in the tele
phone.
The telectroscope is the result of a great
deal of careful study of the natural laws
governing the phenomena of light and
electricity. It is not one of those things
which we sometiroes hear of, which "just
come to me all in a minute, don't you
know." It is a triumph of scientific rea
soning along lines of deduction.
For a long time scientific men have been
looking for the explanation of certain
phenomena in connection with electric
energy. To be able to say positively that
electricity and light were one and the
same would have lifted the veil, and re
moved the uncertainty that surrounded
many of the vexed questions. Now the
veil is partly swept aside, and is gradually
being altogether removed. Lord Kelvin —
Sir William Thomson— one of the fore
most scientists of the world, and the
recognized greatest authority on electricity,
was recently honored in the city of Glas
gow by the celebration of his jubilee, at
which were present the distinguished men
from all over the world, the giants in the
realm of physical science, come to
acknowledge and honor their master. In
his speech of the evening, Lord Kelvin
eaid: "Concerning electricity, I do not
know any more to-day than when I began.
I have simply learned a few of its tricks."
Yet the positive discovery is made that
electricity and light are only different
manifestations of the same thing. Their
differentiation is simply a matter of differ
ence in the rate of vibration. Change the
rate of the vibration of electricity and it
becomes light.
We see a tree, or a house, or any other
object, because the rays of light proceed
from the different portions of the tree or
house in different degrees of intensity,
and so impress upon our retina different
nerve effects, which make up to our con
sciousness tte image which we recognize
as the tree or the house. The whole pro
cess is simply one of light.
. We have all noticed the beautiful colors
produced by a ray of sunlight falling upon
a piece of glass having two or more un
equal surfaces, forming a miniature rain
bow. The band of brilliant hues passing
from red through the intermediate colors
to violet, is called the " spectrum," and is,
in fact, a picture of the primary colors
which, when all are blended together,
form white light.
When science desires to produce the
solar spectrum it takes a piece of glass of
a triangular shape, called a prism, and
allows a ray of sunlight to fall upon it.
The prism separates the white ray of sun
light into its component parts, and there
is thrown upon the wall or screen a ribbon
of exquisitely brilliant hues, in which the
blending ol one color with that adjoining
is impossible of imitation by any known
process of art.
Some years ago a man of an investigat
ing turn of mind took a thermometer and
moved its bulb along the colored spectrum
to see if one colored ray was warmer or
colder than another. He found that away
to the left of the red ray was an invisible
heat ray, and when the thermometer was
placed there the mercury went up with a
bound. Then other men began to investi
gate further, and there was found another
invisible ray located away to the right of
the violet ray, which was a chemical ray—
the "actinic." A sensitized photographic
plate is more speedily acted upon when
placed in the dark spot occupied by this
invisible actinic ray than if it were ex
posed to the full sunlight. But investi
gation was not content to stop here. Ex
periment after experiment was continued
and there has been discovered the pres
ence of a magnetic ray (invisible), and an
electric ray, also invisible. It is the mag
netic ray that is made use of in the opera
tion of the telectroscope.
It is unnecessary to go into a description
of the operation of the, subtle laws govern
ing the production of electricity from
magnetism, or magnetism from electricity;
sufficient to say that the result of the pro
| cess ia well known, and is applied in the
transmission of electrical power. Elec
tricity always produces magnetism, and
magnetism always produces electricity.
They are never separated, though each
possesses distinct characteristics and each
produces different phenomena. This is il
lustrated in the telephone. The voice of
the speaker produces sound waves in the
air, which, falling upon the soft iron
diaphragm, cause it to vibrate. Tbjs vi
bration makes the magnetism of the mag
net to vary, and its variation gives rise to
a series of electric pulsations, or currents,
on the coil of wire which surrounds the
end of the magnet, and are transmitted
over the conducting wire to the distant
station, where the process is reversed and
the vibrating diaphragm gives forth a
duplication of the spoken words.
That it was possible to convert light into
electricity has been long suspected, but
how to reconvert the electricity so formed
| back into light again was the puzzle.
A few years ago an instrument was de
vised whereby it became easy to view the
edge of the sun ana see trie magnificent
exhibitions of solar force in the shape of
i flames as they burst forth from the sun's
j surface. The instrument is called the
' spectroscope. It is formed of a combina
tion of prisms.
A savant named Noad in his investiga
tions in electrics found that a piece of Ice
land spar interposed between the eye
j and. a source of light rendered visible the
light, which was otherwise obscured by
| the passage of a magnetic ray.
On these discoveries and deductions is
founded the telectroscope.
The transmitting apparatus consists of
a box divided into three compartments.
A circular hole at the front end of the box
admits the ray of light, which passes to a
prism fixed in the first dividing wall of the
box. The prism decomposes the light,
and the magnetic ray is allowed to fall
upon a coil of fine, insulated wire, all the
other component rays being excluded. This
magnetic ray excites an electric wave or
current in the coil, which traverses the
I conducting wire to the distant station.
The receiving apparatus is somewhat
similar to the transmitter, save in a few
particulars. When the electric current
arrives at the receiver it forms a magnetic
! ray in the center of the receiving coil and
! is projected upon a prism, having first
i passed thro jgh a properly shaped piece
of Iceland spar. Emerging from the
prism, it is viewed by the person who re
reives it through a magnifying lens and
appears of a viole (hue.
As yet there is some little to be done in
the matter of detail to make the telectro
i scope available for all purposes. But the
j needed labor i 3 along lines that are now
•■ well defined and understood. The whole
| device is exceedingly simple when once
! known.
