Barker experiment: 40KV causes alpha emitter to (slowly) lose its radioactivity

This paper describes a method for treating a small radioactive mineral
sample so as to make it lose its radioactivity.  Mainstream science would
predict that such a thing is not possible, since it involves changing the
half life of radioactive atoms, and the half-life is thought to be

This paper is for your information only.  The process described involves 
dangerous high voltages and radioactive substances.  It should only be 
performed by persons skilled in safe handling of both of these.

	Electrostatic Excitation as decribed by William A Barker.  
Paraphrased by  Braider to describe actual experimental proceedure 
conducted from Nov 20 1994  to present  [Jan 20 1996]

	1) a small mildly radioactive mineral specimen was used.  It is 
described as a type of  periclase and is possibly radium or strontium 
isotope substituted.   Activity to hand held counter is described as 
similar to a pop corn popper.   Fairly rapid counts but not extreme.

	2)  a Van de  Graff generator was modified as follows:

	a)  Belt was removed.
	b)  1/2 inch hole was cut in sphere, about half way up the side.  
hole was de burred.
	c)  A small stage  was built in the sphere out of wood and 
carboard so that the top of the platform, or stage, was even with the 
bottom of the  hole in the side of the sphere.
	d)  periclase sample has wrapped  in plastic and cloth and struck 
with the obligatory open end wrench in the best style and conformance 
with Cavendish lab ethic.
	e)  app. 2 mm by 2 mm by 0.7 mm "chip" was folded into small 
piece  of 2 mil polyethylene film and secured with standard spring type 
wooden clothes pin.
	f)  hand held counter was rigged with rubber band and nut to hold 
down the  press to run spring loaded momentary contact switch so as to be 
able to run counted continuously.
	g)  nine volt battery clip was used to connect the counter to 
bench supply and lead wired were run down Van de Graff tube with counter  
in sphere next to sample so as to get nice "popcorn" count.
	h)  silicone rubber insulated high voltage wire was also run from 
contact point INSIDE of sphere, through the  plastic tube that used to 
house the belt to the negative    side of a 40 Kilo Volt Glassman rack 
mount high voltage power supply.    The positive side of the supply  was 
conveyed by silicone rubber insulated HV cable to a 2" sphere mounted on 
horizontal glass rod about 2" from hole on outside of sphere.
	i)  sample is JUST  INSIDE of the hole.
	j)  no arcing occurs ... it is not supposed to .... just strong 
field gradient from inside sphere [zero volts] to outside sphere [40 KV]..
over the space of the  wall thickness of the sphere ... which is about 
20 gauge spun aluminum.
	k)  field was  applied for 14 hours and then there WAS NO FURTHER 
APPLCATION OF FIELD ... ever ... at all.  None.  Just the 14  hours.

	l)  counts  are now down to about background level.

	This is posted to allow you to duplicate the work.  Please read 
Barker's patent.  This will make everything clear as to mechanical and 
electrical set up of experiment.  The theory and math  are in the patent too.
	This is NOT posted to start some long winded, or short winded 
huffing match .... or to argue.  Do the experiment and THEN report 
results as you have recorded them.   This take at least a year for 
reuslts to manifest it is kind of like breeding cows.

	Suggestion:  Have a mineral speciment  known to have some type of 
alpha emission radio dated by a GOOD geo radio dating lab .... have them 
wark the sample ... photograph it ... saw it in half .... have it marked, 
dated and photographed again ... so that EVERYONE is very clear there can 
be no mistake.
	Expose to 50 KV for 12 to 14  hours.   Wait one year.  Have it 
dated again.  This is a quick and easy thing to .... you could probably 
run up 10 or 20 if you wanted.
