I'm a chemistry major. I was roto-vaping DCM off a solution under
vacuum and with some heat applied (Heidolph brand rotovap with a dry ice /
isopropanol cold finger condenser). I noticed that the condensing DCM on
the inside of the large condenser outer walls would flow down like normal
However, when my gloved fingers touched the outside of the condenser and
moved down in front of an advancing drop it would alter the course of the
drop to a small extent. I could somewhat alter the path of a droplet so
that it was following a line downwards more or less 20 degrees either
direction left or right from vertical. I couldn't do it reliably every
time because drops which became too large were not effected enough and
would flow down the side too fast. However it was very clear that touching
it was having a considerable effect on it.
A strange effect to be sure. As for a possible explanation... I think
perhaps the temperature difference of my finger tips was enough to heat up
the area before and to the side of a drop so that it very very slightly
decreased the surface tension of the DCM and made the resulting slightly
hotter path a more "favorable" path to take to flow with less restriction.
This explanation makes the most sense to me since it was under vacuum
anyways so the temperature of the DCM coming off wasn't very high
considering DCM's boiling point, and decreased boiling point under vacuum.
The heating bath was filled with plain water as well.
I'm not sure how repeatable this would be since lab temperatures vary,
rotovaps vary, I don't have any measurements of temperatures or pressures,
etc... However, since your working at the University... Perhaps you could
ask some of the professors doing research to keep it in mind and mess
around whenever they are needing to rotovap DCM off something anyways.
Perhaps someone else can see this effect as well. I did take a cell phone
vid, but I didn't think to put a black sheet of paper behind the condenser
for contrast at the time, so you can't really see the effect. I have since
graduated so I won't likely have a chance to try to reproduce the effect
for some time.

I was electrolysing a copper-ammonium hydroxide\sodium nitrate solution
with electrodes of graphite(-) and aluminum(+). Voltage:1.5V. At certain
time the solution was full of aluminum(?) crystals and I have no idea how
this happened. Aluminum doesn't becomes metal on aqueous solution! (Sorry

Sapulpa, Oklahoma, 1990/1993? |
About fifteen years ago, I had a short experience with time-lapse in my
life. I would get home from school at about 3:15 on average and my parents
would get home from work at about 4:30. I was about fifteen or sixteen at
the time. I would clean the house up a bit and then approximatly around
4:15 I would walk down the drive-way and cross the street, jump the always
locked gate and go into the woods for a cigarette. My parents would have
tortured me for days if they knew I smoked, which is why I would go to
extremes to be private about my habit. Besides, if my step-dad ever found
any cigarette butts anywhere on our acre of property, it would have been
my butt in trouble. So anyway, I would typically walk almost an acre more
down to the pond and then hang out for awhile until I heard the truck pull
into the drive-way up at home.
It was in the middle of summer when I decided to explore the rest of the
80 acres behind the pond. Walking a narrow path through the weeds, I kept
walking until I found a side path to the left that split into two
different directions. I took one of them, smoking another cigarette of
course, and after what seemed like twenty or thirty minutes later, I found
myself back at the origional path. I had gone in a good size circle. I
headed for home, worried that my parents would be bothered by my absence
without leaving them a note. When I got to the drive-way, I could see that
they were not home yet. When I got inside the house, It was around 4:10. I
felt that this was strange because I had been gone for longer than twenty
minutes, I thought.
Anyway, I tried the path again the next day, this time wearing a watch
and making sure that the time on my watch matched the time on the v.c.r.
before heading back out.
It was half an acre down to the road, another acre atleast to the pond,
about five minutes of normal walking past the pond to the path. Two
cigarettes at about five minutes per cigarette and then the walk back
home. My watch always said that I had been away from the house for no less
that 45 minutes, but the v.c.r. would still be reading no less than a half
an hour less than my watch. After almost a week of doing this cool
experiment, I decided to bring my mother along with me, minus the
cigarettes. She actually agreed to go, plus, she had (still has) a gold
Mickey Mouse watch that is guaranteed to be very accurate to some set
standard of time. (???)
We got almost all the way there when my mother told me that she was going
back home, complained that it was way too cold outside. It was hot as hell
to me, but whatever. So I went alone and this time only lost maybe fifteen
minutes of time. This portal eventually closed off but it was probably one
of the coolest things of the unusual I have experienced.

Does a person emit a unidentifiable energy when sick?|
Does only people with certain dna markers emit when sick?
I take infra-red thermo images of people, but when I find someone sick of
cancer or a serious illness it will show up or I will see angiogenesis of
the veins ahead of time. As the person is photographed by my camera, it
affects the electronics and I have stop shut it down. This phenomenon
happens all the time when people are really sick or about to die, they
emit a blast of energy or static discharge and affect all electronic. I
have been trying to document this affect. I have been associating this
with an imbalance of nervous bundle or of just plain sick body. I am a
good scientist, and a good licenced thermographer and accept the data as a

My Name is Tony Devencenzi.
I am a retired instrumentation designer and an amatuer scientist. for the
past five years I have been doing a research project on a discovery that I
made involving naturally occuring ultra low frequency waves and have
performed many experiments that have lead me to postulate a theory that is
based in the belief of an aether. In short, I have discovered naturally
ocurring ULF waves with a frequency of 0.5Hz down to .01Hz, that are
detectable by electrical, magnetic and scalar means. These waves are
everywhere and are imprinted on the earth's electrical field and also upon
the power grid. They have the ability to penatrate shielding. I am
offering all of my research, plans for the instruments I have constructed,
details of experiments, virtual instrumentation software that I have
written, schematic diagrams, etc, to anyone who is interested. I have
just put all this with download ability, on my new website
aetherwavetheory.com I am not
selling anything, just want to share my work.

Hello Everyone --|
Several weeks ago I began research and experimentation on the development
of a software program and kit that when downloaded and installed would
allow the user to conduct true time travel, essentially turning their home
computer into a Time Machine. I am now very near completion of the kit for
market, but weeks ago when I was still researching my theory and had not
yet even developed a project plan or prototype - I began to get what I
call "time ripples"; distortions in the local time-space continuum. One in
particular was really cool, but rather disturbing too.
I was taking a break from reading up on the theory behind psionic time
travel, and I was sitting under a tree outside my favorite coffee house on
the corner of Haight and Masonic in San Francisco. I was wondering idly if
I would ever crack the theory of time travel and succeed in physically
traveling through time. At that moment, myself from approx. 25 years in
the future came strolling down Haight Street ! I knew instinctively and
with complete certainty and no doubt INSTANTLY that it was me from the
future - and as the other "me" from the future came abreast of my tree I
wondered in my head: "Surely 'I' must know that this is 'me' sitting here,
I wonder if the 'I' from the future will be able to resist the temptation
to turn and look me in the eye?". At the exact moment I thought that
thought, the "me" from the future, less than ten feet away - turned and
actually smirked at me !
I guess my Time Travel Software Kit works !

BETTER PHOTO VISUAL IMAGE EFFECT!!!!!+ added bonus experiment SEE YOUR
I read the article here about the photo image effect in a dark room when
turning off a lamp. I had actually found a much more dramatic example of
the effect years ago when showed by a friend. Same setup as far as a
COMPLETELY dark room. No light is a must. A room without windows is
preferable. Now take a camerra flash. the older kinds on film/rather than
digital camerras is the best kind. Perhaps a VERY bright strobe light may
work if you can set it to flash only once and then be turned off. Anyway,
so you are in a completely black room. Flash your BRIGHT flash source,
and......after a few seconds you should see a very intense image of
whatever was in your field of vision when the light went off. This is a
VERY cool illusion because wherever you turn your head the image will
stay with you (almost like a heads up display). Try standing up and
looking down at the ground before the flash. Then get on you knees and
continue to look down-it seems like you are really high up and looking
down a long pit! BONUS TRICK LOOK AT YOUR OWN BRAIN!!!!!!!!!! This one is
even cooler!!!!!!Reverse your sight and look inward toward your own
brain!!!!!!(actually you are likely seening the blood vessels in your
eyes!) I learned this one from a very old mysterious book called
Etidorhpa, which had lots of weird science and Freemasonic overtones!!
Hold a small LED lightbulb (in the book they used a candle but this is
much too difficult as it depends on getting a much more subtle angle from
farhter away-plus they didnt have LED's during the time of the
book-1800's) and get yourself into the same ultra dark room used in the
experiment before. look directly forward and stick the LED light right up
to your bottom eyelid touching it if you have to (LED's are not hot) Get
just the right angle it should be shining not into your eye but more
accross it)and suddenly you will see images of the inside of your eyball
VERY WEIRD AND WONDERFUL EXPERIMENT!!!!!! I believe that this works by
causing the lens of your eye to become a mirror.

Is a method for finding complex single are true numbers within dates are
groups of other normally forming numbers. Any number from 1 to 9 would be
conceder a true number use the following method.
Let??s use today??s date we would write the date in long form only using
03 28 2009
Now we would break them down in a way we can find the true number.
> 60 > 6 + 0 = 6
X = (A+B) +(C+D) + (E+F)
I have found that the numbers follow a order from date to date.
For a example take the doom days date 12 21 2012 and work your way back.
This method has helped me understand they way things work, everything is
about numbers, in reproduction it takes two 1+1 = 2 whatever the numbers
point two are mean I do not know. A person can use this system for codes.
I do for much of the work that I do.
When using Codeis remember the rules
1. Add are subtract each set of numbers until there are only one
2. Always use the format, never add are subtract over a double digit.
3. The last and by most the important, always question your logic and
what you see is never the answer.

"Possible anti-gravity effect in high tension AC 60Hz field"|
I work in a high voltage metrology lab, during some not too routine
testing we experienced some effects that I nor my boss had ever seen. We
were testing some toroidal surfaces for breakdown voltage using a 450KV PK
AC transformer. After the test (only went to about 300KV) I decided to see
how dust, dirt and wads of "dust bunnies" may lower the breakdown voltage.
I scooped up a handfull of crud from the floor of the lab and placed it
around the bottom toroid. At about 280KV I noticed the hairy dirt balls
actualy lift off the bottom, slowly move to the top, then back and forth
with a changing time constant, it actualy hung in between the conductors
several times. I would expect this during a DC tent but this is really
strange for an AC field. Perhaps some rectification was happening but we
I have not repeated this test but plan on doing a few controlled

Working with a glow discharge tube, had serviced 2600 volt, 10 amp
power supply. Decided to start web cam and record if anything weird as I
tested the power supply and discharge tube.|
Unusual striations in the discharge tube formed and maintained quite a
while. These were Roundish and three of them formed. Initial size was
about beach ball, then all 3 reduced to basket ball size. It is strange
that striations form at the ~ 4.5 to 6 amp region, this is uaually where
arc discharges are, in bthat current range.
Striations are usually below 100 milliamps and I never get striations that
last at arc currents.
This time I did.
Pressure in tube is ~ 85 to 120 millitorr (sea level pressure is 760
Current at time of ball formation 4.5 through 5 amps DC.
Voltage across both ends of tube is 185 volts (after arc mode
Initial plasma starting voltage is 1100 volts DC.
Tube height is 73 inches, with end seals included.
Inside diameter of tube is 22.5 inches
Gas mixture is standard air, simply pumped down to lower pressure.

light(the type found in switches) across the primary windings on the
transformer and powered the circuit up and as expected the neon light lit
up but, then i noticed that one of the wires from the primary of the
transformer had become disconnected from the neon light and to my
amazement the neon light was still lit up even though the neon light was
unly connected to the transformer by a single wire! wtf!?!?|

OVER LOOKED SIMPLICTY|
The phenomenon of life. There is nothing so amazing as to blow my mind
then sheer existence. The age old question. Why should any phenomenon be
so hard to believe when existance of self awareness is so mind boggeling.
But, it is boring. We just except it. It's normallity. What's the point in
life? All things living must die. Is the ultimate goal ever lasting life
and happiness? What's the point in telling others about strange
occurences? Is it to vindicate that there is more to life. That time thing
with the clocks is a wierd feeling. My experience was always checking and
the clock would say 2:02 or 5:25 or 1:51 or 12:12 etc.. doesn't happen
much any more. Had a cool phenomenon happen in the same town as the movie
"phenomenon" was filmed. I was expiermenting with radio transmission and
was transmitting a musical instrument to several portable radios within
close proxcimity. The feedback started creating an angelic like music on
its own dependent on slight movement in the feedback range; complex
musical patterns with perfect resonance and harmony occured. It was a lot
like surfing. Invisible waves like the waves of the ocean but with
electricity. I still think the strangest of all is the fact that I have
the capacity to sit at ponder right here right now in the phenomenon of
life that won't last forever. THINK ABOUT IT!

I found something I consider a bit strange while experimenting with
high voltage and charging a 5 inch dia. pipe that is about 12 inches tall.
I was using this for an antenna while I was experimenting with power
transmission using high voltage and high frequency. The pipe was insulated
by sitting it on an empty cardboard box and was being charged with at
around 100,000 volts. There are a cool breezes that flows all around the
pipe similar to an air conditioning vent blowing on it from nearby. Very
noticable and unmistakable. Turn off the voltage and it stops circulating.
This can also be used to put out a burning match if you bring it close.
After some investigation I found that a guy has put in for a patent on
this to cool welded joints in airplane wings that cannot be left to cool
on their own because of the materials under the welded area that will be
heated and destroyed. This effect evidently effects properities of the
transfer of heat within a metal and could be used to improve heat

I'm a college student majoring in physics.. after some research decided
to build a bajak temporal flux generator.|
Well I built an exact replica to spec and got some truely strange and
I devised an expiriment where I combined the magnetic (field this device
seems to produce) with accelerating kinetic energy.(my car)
So after accelerating to 100 mph I took the freeway offramp. I felt
like I was on some sort of drug, just like john bajak described a
subliminal and accoustical roller coaster.
I remember not really liking this feeling a very strange and eery feeling
like mild confusion ..A feeling like the world I was in was a complete and
The town seemed different somehow. I noticed little things like signs
and billboards looked old and faded.. and all the cars in traffic were
like what you expect to see a few years back. but nothing significant.
The year and date are all the same. So I decide to go to Wal-Mart to
check up on the latest available technology for sale. I pull into the
parking lot all the while feeling like I had to drive fast It was an

a lot of them are, if that would be interesting to readers.|
eg. Kaleem Ali (29th March, 2005) - a classic St Elmo's Fire
N Sherman (29th January, 2002) - as they said themselves, the second
rainbow is caused by the light from the sun's reflection in a pool of
water. A great sighting of a rare phenomenon.
Yokohama (19th July, 2002) - a 'glory', or halo, around the moon. Quite
common, caused by light fromt he moon being refracted by the water
droplets or ice crystals in thin cloud covering it.
Randal-on-the-road (2nd May, 2002) - St Elmo's Fire (those meteorologists
must have known that....!)
Paul (11th May, 2001) - as above
Richard Pearce (16th April, 2001) - a light pillar, I suspect (if it was
Dennis Deveckx (July 25, 2000) - sounds like good light pillars.
Phil S (March 23rd, 2000) - sounds like a reflected rainbow as above.
Chris Canning (May 9th, 1999) - a classic 'glory'. I'm amazed the crew
said they'd never seen one before as they're very common from
Randy Bornorst (2nd January, 1998) - a fogbow
Michael Hoffmann (10th October, 1997) - a hole punch cloud (caused by the
water droplets being seeded into ice crystals, which drop down out of the
cloud, and form a neatly-edged circle of cloudless sky).
Paul Whitehorn (1st November, 1996) - Alexander's band. Google it!
Bill (27th September, 1996) - holepunch cloud again

Yesterday evening I went to dinner with my wife's cousin and her
husband. During the evening the husband demonstrated a strange ability he
has whereby objects both metal and plastic 'stick' to head head rather
like metal to a magnet. After much experimentation and even washing his
head at one point I must say I am confused. I can feel a very slight pull
when I get an objects very close to his head. I have photographed him
with various things 'attached' to his head but of course I realise that
these prove nothing on their own. He thinks there's nothing really
strange about it and sees no reason to consult a doctor etc. about it.
Anyhow, it seemes unsual enough to send to you, I also sent a text message
to a friend who studied physics more than me but he reacted by suggesting
it was either friction or a hoax by me.|

Maybe not too weird. Remember that guy from (maybe) Britain that
said on TV that he had made this special thermal insulation that was
cheap, anomolously high-temp resistant, and made with "things found in a
grocery store" (he said with a twinkle in his eye)? He would take his
white goo from a mayo jar and paste it to an egg, wet. Then torch the hell
out of it and the egg was fine. He said that military were looking at it,
and they said they couldn't crack what it was made of even with
spectroscopy of whatever kind. Never heard anything more about it. Well, I
may, or may not, have made some on my porch in college.
here's what I was mucking with that evening on the porch: A propane torch
(cheap and cheesey Bernz-O-matic like), a [probably alumina, white as
snow] refractory brick tray used for electronic parts manufacture like
ferrites and ceramic resistors or some like stuffs, "20 Mule Team" Borax
[Hydrated sodium borate], Table Salt [sodium chloride], Sodium Hydroxide
[aka: lye, caustic soda, sodium hydrate], Flint Glass Rod (and/or) Soda
Glass Rod (and/or) Borosilicate Glass Rod.
I was just making
molten balls of stuff and one of the balls of stuff crystalized before my
eyes and would not melt. This would be no biggy, but for the fact that
when I took it to my metal sculpture class and torched it with the
oxygen/acetylene torch and the little ball of stuff would not melt even
after I had a pool of this [probably alumina] firebrick under the flame.
Never have I seen anything hold up to a flame like that before or since. I
feel like an idiot, but I don't know which items from the above list I had
mixed together and I just blew it off for the longest time.
really is similar to what the ol' Brit was making I see why he had the
twinkle in his eye... everything I used can be found in some form within a
grocery store. Be it the Borax from the launrdy section, the "Red Devil"
Lye, the various glass types from everything from light bulbs to pickle
jars, Table Salt, or even if the alumina brick got in on the reaction, it
can be found floating around in one or a hundred fixtures of machines and
Being that I have almost everything for this test and
absolutely no content on my website, I hope someone beats me to it and
finds that it is a useful substance. Poke me in the forehead if you think
I should do it and post my results on my site.

My partner in gradute school called it "The Gillespie Effect". At Rice
University around 1990 I discovered a technique to create a "blue light
source" which lasted up to several minutes from nothing but a piece of
foam rubber. It happened during an experiment to measure semiconductor
optical flourescence, when a piece foam rubber that was used to help
secure a low temperature cryostat, was accidentally spashed with liquid
nitrogen when the dewar was over filled . The frozen foam rubber was
accidentally irradiated by UV light from low power Helium-Cadmiun laser
(325 nm wavelngth)and a brilliant blue glow light formed right before
before my eyes. It continued to emit blue light whuch was quite bright
for 1-2 minutes even when the UV light was turned off! When I showed my
co-workers, they coined it "The Gillespie Effect" aftet yours truely. We
never persued trying to exploit the phenomenon for anything further
because it didn't seem very practcal for most uses. We assume the blue
was from the N2 emmission held by the frame work of the foam rubber, but
it could be something more. It also worked with a mercury lamp source.
It looked pretty cool the first time!|

Weird Transformer Effects|
One you can try at home easily and it's paradoxical and bizarre!
I have a toroidal transformer with a primary and secondary. Turns ratio is
irrelevant but primary is 6V to secondary 240V (ie 1:40). Now Imagine this
setup (this is done with relays so every goes back to high impedance,
Primary to a voltage source:
Secondary shorted by relay:
Assume that on primary side we have given enough time for transients to
die away so that steady current in primary. We then short the secondary.
FACT when we do this, no effect on primary side (as you'd expect).
WITH SECONDARY STILL SHORTED. Disconnect primary current. What happens?
You'd expect to see a back-emf in the primary? Hang on flux links the
secondary too, so you'd see one there too, right? FACT: nothing!!
So what happens when you eventually unshort the secondary (the primary is
o/c)? (Eventually could mean seconds, days, weeks, months, years ...)
FACT: You see a back emf in the primary!! (Finally!)
A Quick Thought:
1) IF we did see a back emf when we o/c the primary we could violate
c-of-e because we flux link two coils. Imagine the primary(s) is an LC
tank circuit setup to give us the pulse. We then un o/c our secondary when
the current in the primary is steady and pick up that change in flux when
we o/c the primary. NATURE won't let us do that.
2) If when we unshorted the secondary we saw no back emf in the primary,
where did our electrical work go in setting up the primary current??? It
can't have disappeared - another violation of c-of-e.
3) Okay, we saw a back emf. That implies a flux was present => a current
was flowing. Hang on, the primary is open circuit!!! The secondary is
shorted, there must be current in the secondary BUT the secondary is
totally passive (no current sources). WHAT THE HELL KEEPS THE CURRENT
GOING! (especially if we unshort days after!)
If there is no current, there is no magnetic field.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What generated our back emf? I've been talking to some engineer freinds of
mine - there is some stress in space apart from the usual em fields.
Please, can we have an answer. Can anybody make use of this phenomenom.
This is so easy to replicate.

| Back when I
was about 14,
something I had built did something I'd classify as odd.
The circuit was simple: the DC-DC inverter salvaged out of an old xenon
timing light, and one of those hoop-shaped UHF television antennas. I
hooked the inverter to 12 volts DC from a wall adapter, and connected the
high voltage/high frequency secondary to the two leads on the hoop.
Surprisingly, the crude device didn't short out and go up in a fireball;
and I could hear the inverter make a faint "whining" sound from the
transformer laminations vibrating.|
Somewhere along the line, I got the bright idea to stick something inside
the loop and see what (if anyhthing) would happen - I expected at most
some magnetic oddity. So I suspended an ordinary steel paper clip in the
exact center of the ring with fine sewing thread, and plugged the circuit
in. The paper clip developed a faint blue glow around it, and about ten or
fifteen seconds in, IT VANISHED, leaving the sewing thread dangling free.
Where did it go?
What makes this so odd? It's that when I reversed the polarity of the
hoop (by doing the 'ol switcheroo of the two high voltage leads) and
repowered the thing, the paper clip reappeared on the thread amidst a
faint blue corona like it had the first time around. The paper clip
appeared to be intact, and did not change temperature or exhibit any
obvious metallurgical changes.
So this leaves the question: Where did the paperclip go anyway? Did it
really "transport" to another physical location? Did it slip through our
spacetime and end up in some kind of subspace domain or interfold layer?
Did a quantum phase shift occur, putting it slightly out of phase with the
dimension we exist in? Did it end up in another quantum reality; ie. an
alternate universe? Or did it time-travel to some past or future point?
I think I can rule out a straight "transport" from one physical location
to another; for the paperclip would have likely fallen on its side during
the first half of transport and reappeared in a different physical
orientation; assuming it reappeared at all. It might also come back very
cold (from being briefly exposed to space, should it have been transported
Time travel also seems suspect; a very similar effect might have been
observed upon its return - again, it might not even have been retrievable.
That still leaves the door wide open as to what may have happened to that
paper clip after it vanished from the wire hoop.
About two weeks after this experiment, I came home from school one day to
find the entire apparatus (which had been set up on a dresser) quite
thoroughly destroyed; and I've never been able to re-create these results
nor did I ever find out who smashed the piss out of it.
Has anybody else come across some wierd effects in some circuit they
messed with, either intentionally or by accident - not counting the Bajak
flux cap, of course.

| ABOUT THE
Lost Science" by Jerry Vassilatos, the author describes how the
infamous "Philadelphia Experiment" took shape. It started with a huge
pulse-welder which was used in a Navy yard to fuse steel plates together
while building battleship hulls. Workers reported that certain tools
would turn up missing after each welding "shot." There were no
eyewitnesses since the welder created an x-ray hazard, so workers were not
allowed nearby. So they set up film cameras and recorded the tools
actually vanishing. That was supposedly the event which started the
research program. (But just who told Vassilatos about this, and how do we
know they weren't just making it up?)
Anyway, if the paperclip really did vanish, and if the Philadelphia
Experiment really did make metal turn transparent, then perhaps the key to
tabletop replication of the Philadelphia Experiment is to pump some high
through a small single-turn coil of heavy wire with a paperclip
suspended in the center. (Maybe you need to use steel wire in order to
attain the effect, since those UHF antennas weren't usually made of
copper, and that would also explain why we don't observe such things
when working with normal copper-coil inductors.)
But if such things are real, why don't we see them all the time in the
electronics business? WHen running the "quarter shrinker" metal crushing
capacitor device, why doesn't the quarter frequently vanish? Maybe the
stories are bogus. But here's another possibility. When we discharge a
big capacitor, usually the waveform is AC added to the DC; it's
exponential ringing. If the fields are important, and if nonlinear
effects are involved, then the AC component might screw things up. (If
reversing the polarity will reverse the spacewarp, then an AC pulse train
added to the DC pulse might keep the effect from happening at all.) We'd
want to pick a discharge resistor that gave a neutrally-damped output
pulse, but not so large a value that the pulse would be greatly weakened.
Perhaps a lucky experimenter would use just the right coil to produce
strong fields but without high-frequency ringing, while other
experimenters would never hit on the right conditions. (It's very
important to preserve the original experiment... and often you can't help
anyone to replicate the effect by just giving them written explanation,
they have to come and see the actual device.)
Seattle, WA - Saturday, June 3, 2003 at 6:51:42 (PST)
Some time ago, after seeing the Bajak Flux Cap. I decided to construct
one myself. I could not find all of the exact parts, so I fudged a little
and used capacitors that were as close to spec as I could obtain without
having to order parts. A little reluctantly I switched on the circuit for
the first time, thinking of the story attached to the plans. Nothing
happened. I wasn't too surprised. I continued to play with the switches
and varied the times and order of pressing the switches. I began to feel
a little weird, kinda like I was slightly nervous or worried
subconsiously. Maybe I was to a point. Then I got brave and aimed the
transucer towards myself from about a foot away. After a few moments, I
began to get a slight headache. Excited, I turned on the circuit and
placed it on the table and sat with my head over it. The headache grew so
intense that I did not think I would be able to go to work that afternoon.
The next day I repeated my little experiment. The headache returned. I
tried turning the rheostat both times to see if I could detect any
changes. Nothing different. On the second day however, after turning the
pot each way to its max, suddenly I put the smoke theory of electricity
into effect. My rheostat burned out with quite the little smoke and spark
show. Quite impressive from only two 9vs. I plan to order the correct
parts and rebuild it in a small plastic box. One theory I have on the
headaches is, that without a driver circuit, maybe the transducer emits
some sort of sound freq. that tends to give humans a headache. I dont
have a dog or I would have tested that theory. I am not an electronics
whiz, I only know the basic principals behind electric current and can
follow simple schematics enough to get by. If my theory is totally off
the wall, let me know.|

I just noticed if you have been experiemented with such devices as Van
De Graaff generators for awhile (i.e., hair rasing experiments and letting
them shock you), and go into a dark room with a flourescent tubes, and
then rub it, it will glow dimly. This result can be seen many hours after
contact with the generator. One night I was running and experiment with
the Van De Graaff generator and showing off in front of my friends
(shocking myself and my girl friend). I got up the next morning, reached
over, and toched my alarm clock (which was unpluged as usual due to the
dog). Upon touching it, I actived the LCD display. For the longest time I
couldn't figure it out, until I decided to just forget about it and take a
shower. When I entered my bathroom (which has flourescent lights around
the mirror) I noticed the light was glowing. I rubbed it, and as it had
done before, it increased in intensity. Quite fascinating. Perhaps the
humidity was low and I hadn't come in contact with any ground source all
through the night. Therefore, the static remained stored in me? I was a
giant human capicator?
Pretty cool. If you have a Van De Graaff, the experiment with flourescent
tubes is pretty cool. Be sure to do it in a darkened enviroment. You can
really freak your friends out by rubbing the tube and making it glow, then
handing it to them...what(!?)...they can't do it??? That's becuase they
don't have the "gift" :-)

A few days ago, I read this post by Bill Beaty's brother:|
Fort Myers, FL
USA - Saturday, February 06, 1999 at 20:39:29 (PST) >
Now, at first, I thought, "This guy has just had some luck at guessing the
time." Until, later that day, I was cooking some food in the kitchen, and
like Dave, I set the electronic timer to ten minutes. While waiting for
the food to be done, I walked around and listened to some music, moshing
all over the kitchen and so on. Then, just to amuse myself, i remembered
this post I read and pointed at the timer without looking. At this very
instant, it went off. This scared the living #$ a ! out of me! I checked
the pizza in the oven, and the cheese wasnt fully melted, so, I set the
timer for an extra three minutes and went back to headbanging. To test my
luck again, I spontaneuosly pointed at the timer and sure enough, it went
off immediately. Remember, there are NO CLOCKS IN THE KITCHEN, and even
if there were, i would be too dizzy from jumping around to read them
correctly. As a result of this experience, I have been led to believe
Dave Beaty's idea that humans may have some sort of "internal clock" that
gives them an amazingly accurate sense of the passing of time.
If anyone else has had these type of experiences, please let us

I have always been intrested with time and time travel. Now Since that
i read a lot of enstine stuff and i came to the conclustion that time
couldn't be fiddled with. I knew that the faster you travel in a object
that the slower time gets and your mass increases and when you hit hte
speed of light you mass gecome infinet and time stops no if you know
anything about science you would know that it would take more that infinet
energy to propell that craft faster than light. And IF you could do that
you could go back in time. I thought of this and sine i don't have any
space crafts that go faster than light then I couldn't go back in time.
Then one day (after seeing "Back to the Future")I thought to humor myself
and do a internet search on time travel and i found the bajak flux
capacitor i have the plans and i don't think that they are 100% right so
if you could e-mail me the plans of a place in which i can get the real
ones then that would be great. I Will post my finding of the plans on this
page. Or if this plan is riht then i don't need another one
I would also like some site adress talking about this

Several experiences have led me to believe we have an
untapped ability to judge the passage of time, in some circumstances, to a
very accurate degree. The other day I had the mechanical timer set on the
stove for 15 minutes or so. I went off and was watching television. All of
a sudden I knew it was about to go off. I went to the kitchen and rasied
my hand. As I humorously lowered it and pointed at the timer, it went off
at that instant. I wasn't even looking at the reading when I did this.
Reminds me of the times I set the alarm to an early hour and wake from a
sound sleep, look at the alarm and it goes of the moment I look at it.

The Blue Flash!
Go to the refrigerator in near total darkness.
(You need to have your eyes dark adapted.)
Grab an unmolested ice tray; metal, plastic, whatever.
Place it over the sink (to catch ice cubes).
Crack the ice cubes loose by twisting the tray.
Bango! All the cubes make a blue flash when they
pop loose. Get some sleep.

I was building a electromagnet and It was starting to look good. I had
put a switch on it to divert the power at my will. Also, i had added a
minutere tesla coil to the design for optimal power. when i hooked it up
to a 9 volt battery and i held up the screwdriver which i had wrapped the
wire around to magnatise. i was able to take my other hand and metal
objects would attract to it as if my hand were a magnet. |
