The Enigma Machine — Part 4
and the increase in blood pressure. The result is that a person's hands get moist. This film of moisture conducts better than dry skin. Thus, while dry fingers are far enough
apart to prevent air ionization, the moist fingers are not.
We've seen that skin is an insulator. The moisture
breaks down the insulation of the skin. Thus, sparks are
seen. It is confidently predicted that anything that causes
similar physiological effects will show the similar Kirlian
effects — or will simply show that wet fingers "spark" closer than dry fingers.
I do not claim to know all there is about Kirlian effects.
However, I do know that whatever I have found can be simply explained with polar conductivity, corona discharge,
and/or the poor execution of experiments. There is nothing mysterious or magical about this force, regardless of
what some people would have you believe.
Recently, there has been a great deal of interest in
determining if Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) RF radiation has harmful effects. These studies have looked at high
voltage power lines, police radar, cell phones, and other
fairly common sources of low power and/or low frequency
radiation. (Note, radar and cell phones are included, even
though their operating frequency is not "extremely low.")
In general, the answer (so far) seems to be that there
is no connection between these sources and human
health. However, the methods of measurement are
generally conventional electric current or RF power techniques. It has been shown that these methods can be
misleading when measuring this force. It suggests that
testing for molecular rotation might be useful.
Additionally, the seed germination experiment discussed in last month’s article is very suggestive. It seems
quite reasonable to expect subtle cellular effects when large,
complex polar molecules are rotated by an external force.
Many organic molecules' shapes and orientations are critical
to their function. It also appears reasonable to expect that
molecular rotation at different frequencies would have
different effects, depending on the natural resonant frequency. It seems to me that the seed germination experiment
should be replicated independently. This could be important.

only recognized after I had done the bulk of my research
years ago. Additionally, Minto's devices were black boxes and
he kept everything secret about the process. So, it cannot be
known for certain what his equipment consisted of.
Minto's work was mostly concerned with communication. "Voice transmission via Plasmonics through the single
wire was unaffected when the wire was cut and capacitors,
resistors (extremely high values), chokes, or even diodes
back to back were inserted and the 'circuit' completed"
(reference above). We saw a similar effect with the
battery/ground effect last month, where a large resistance
to ground made a significant difference in performance.
You can reproduce his results by physically grounding
a battery lead through various components and values
while The Enigma Machine runs on batteries. Back-to-back
In the mid 1960s, unconventional scien-tist/experimenter Wallace L. Minto crested a
flurry of interest in "Plasmonics" or
"Hydronics," which was described as a new
form of wireless communication (Popular
Electronics, March 1966, Volume 24, No. 3,
pages 50-53). There are many similarities
between the research and demonstrations he
performed and the effects described here over
the last few months. These similarities were
Figure 8. Typical Kirlian photography goes directly to photographic film or paper;
the photographers don't actually “see” what they’re photographing.
That makes it seem much more mysterious.
