More on Biometer Readings & Aurameters
June 15, 1953
GREAT NEWS AND A NEW BIOMETER!
H.R.A. Verne Cameron, whose amazing kindness, generosity and forethought continually bring me the most pleasant surprises, rushed to the rescue in the matter of the lack of a genuine Brunler-Bovis Biometer, and the consequent difficulty about the correctness of my biometric readings of signatures etc.
As you should all know, HRA Cameron is a mechanical genius as well as a psychic of a rare order – the latter demonstrated daily in his successful water dowsing and in his continued experiments with aura measuring, beam locations, and no end of related matters. In short, he is a rough diamond with about the highest polish I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. If anyone should be able to make a super-biometer, the maker of (and inventor of) the Aurameter should be able to do it. He also has to his credit some really amazing discoveries, such as the fan aura over a signature, and the energy beams coming from all manner of objects, especially from cones and pyramids – where he has found things which we still cannot understand, use or evaluate in terms of the lagging science of today. His discovery of the invisible forms above the human body is something which certainly must be looked into much further when this is possible, and his work with the Aurameter proving the fact of thought-forms and giving insight into their nature is something all the world will hear about eventually.
ONE OF HIS LATEST DISCOVERIES came when Mr. Cameron was testing with the Aurameter to see what material to use to carry the mama force or “dielectric” or radiation force from signature, head, body or any tested thing, into the biometer. In the famous tests conducted by HRA Eeman, in England and described in his book, CO-OPERATIVE HEALING, he first used insulated wires to conduct the force from the hand to the head, etc, or the hand to the head of another person. It was discovered a year or so ago that copper was not needed to conduct the force and that it could, to all appearances, easily be carried along cotton cords and picked up by cloth pads. With this in mind …
HRA Cameron ran tests with his Aurameter and came up with the discovery that the force carried indefinitely along an insulated copper wire, but would travel only a few feet on a cotton or silk cord before suddenly stopping. Having learned this, he used insulated single strand copper wire to connect the head band to the plug-in points of the Biometer, his having the usual one on the end of the measuring tape, and, in addition, three more, one on the top, one on the bottom and one on the far right of the plate of the Biometer. These extra plug-in points all connect with the central point above which the special pendulum is suspended. To kill the natural radiations in the plywood of which the instrument is constructed, a heavy bass string (as on a banjo) runs the length of the instrument. It serves a dual purpose, also acting as a guide for the end of the Biometer tape which is spring-activated and which is pulled to or from the pendulum and center plate as the reading is made. This tape is calibrated in both centimeters and inches, and works smoothly and gives great accuracy. (In this connection it must be noted that Dr. Grace Brunler, great authority on the Brunler-Bovis Biometer, says that silk is the perfect conductor of dielectric force and radiations, and that metals which will conduct electricity will act as insulators against the flow of the dielectric. She tells me that Dr. Oscar Brunler was the one who called HRA L.E. Eeman’s attention to the fact that metals did not conduct the dielectric force, and who caused him to change over to the use of silk and cotton cords.)
In Mr. Eeman’s book, CO-OPERATIVE HEALING, page 4, J. Cecil Maybe, writing an introduction after having a large part in running tests later described in the body of the book, writes: “Eeman’s ‘unknown force’ acts across short air gaps and along poor conductors, but it does so more strongly when guided through or along copper wires, etc.”
Mr. Eeman describes the items which he used with great success to conduct the force for several years as consisting of (page 28), “Two metal handles, one of which is held in the subject’s right hand, and the other in his left hand. …Two mats of copper gauze about one foot square, one of which rests under the head, and the other under the base of the spine of the completely relaxed subject. Each handle is connected with one of the mats by some ten feet of insulated copper wire, and the connection is so made that it can be broken at the handle connected with the other mat unknown to the subject.”
Dr. Grace Brunler tells me that the insulation on the wires used in the Eeman “circuit” was of silk, although he does not specify its nature in his book so far as I can learn, and that the silk carried the force, not the metal. This point apparently needs to be looked into more carefully. For my part, from the standpoint of the Huna theory of the aka-mana combination or force moving under the direction of the consciousness through aka substance as the perfect conductor, I would suggest that no conductor is needed – at least neither copper nor silk. The very thought that the force (mana in our terms) is about to flow along a wire or cord or through air (as in telepathic communication), will cause an aka cord to overlay the physical wire, cord of silk, or screen of copper or canvass, and that the mana-force then flows or radiates along or through the aka cord or substance in any form it may take.
On pages 359 to 362 of his book, Mr. Eeman lengthens Mr. Maybe’s “short air gap” to about two feet in telling of one of his most significant experiments with the effects of his “circuit.” He took a man who had lost both legs and connected the wires of his “circuit” – a special one in this case – with metal bands which were placed where his ankles would have been had he not had them amputated. His experiments were well planned and carefully carried out, ending in the conclusion that the force traveled over the etheric counterparts of the missing legs to reach the ankle bands and their connecting wires. This demands that we conclude that either the force can leap a large air gap, which would take great pressure to cause an electric spark to leap, or that it flowed along or through the etheric substance of the lost legs. ((Our aka substance of the aka body, which cannot, we suppose, be amputated.))
To get back to the various forms of the Biometer, whether they expect metal, wood or silk, etc. to conduct the “force,” we would say in the light of Huna that these items were perhaps of less importance than the act of the mind of the operator when he EXPECTS the “force” to flow from the subject of the signature or “sample” into the Biometer and there play its part in giving a reading in terms of what has been supposed to be wave lengths and/or frequencies, potencies or what have we. It seems quite possible that our several experts may eventually advance their studies to the point of agreeing on the matter – and, perhaps, in the end, they may find the aka-mana complex as satisfactory to use to answer all the major questions as I have found it, personally.
ANOTHER CORRECTION kindly offered by HRA Dr. Grace Brunler, after reading what I had to say in the last Bulletin, is that I was mistaken in saying that a “convention” might have something to do with the use of the Biometer. She explains that the Biometer has nothing to do with a “convention” or agreement between the operator and his Aunihipili concerning the meaning of any motion which the pendulum of the Biometer is caused to take on, be it the back-and-forth or the circular motion. This leaves us with no alternative other than to conclude that there is something in the nature of the brain waves themselves or the radiations from the signatures, which causes the pendulum to move in certain ways without the Aunihipili directing the motion as a part of the code or “convention” set up to allow a form of cryptic conversation between the operator (Auhane) and the subconscious (Aunihipili).
I believe that other experts on the use of the pendulum, with or without the biometer or its plate, generally agree that something causes the pendulum, as actuated by the something on the operator which is beyond his conscious control, to swing at certain angles or in certain straight or curved lines to indicate certain readings or positions of the pendulum in relation to the thing measured, as in the case of a signature, an egg or an onion, The lead-in cord or wires from the head or thumb tip of the one to be measured, must end at a connection with some part of any form of Biometer, and at this connecting point it is supposed that a radiation or flow center duplicating that of head or thumb tip, is set up so that the distance from the plate and pendulum can determine the length of the radiating or flowing waves. One is forced to ask whether the head or thumb in question automatically stops radiating because the wire or cord lead-in has been connected. If it does not, then why does not the distance from the head, for instance, show in the pendulum movement on the Biometer. It would be almost impossible to place the head at the same distance from the pendulum and plate, and at the same angle as the cord-connection point. As a curious bystander, I make so bold as to inquire whether or not we may be privileged to suspect that (1) the “force” moves as expected because it is under direction from the Aunihipili which is in turn influenced by the Auhane of subject and/or operator? (2)Is the force, if not directed by a Aunihipili working under some form of “convention” of such a nature that it is a mixture of force and consciousness, so that the latter guides the action of the former? (3)Or could not the Huna postulate of consciousness directing the combined mana-aka give a fairly good answer?
THE AUMAKUA ALSO MAY BE INVOLVED at times in the use of the several instruments which demand some psychic ability to master. I am thinking not only of the Biometers and the Cameron Aurameter, but of the many forms of pendulums and dowsing rods used in map dowsing. Consider map dowsing in which an operator dowses over a map of a far distant piece of ground, hunting for water which will provide a well. The actual water is NOT in the map, but in the ground perhaps some hundreds of miles away, as on a far island. If the water at a certain place under the ground on the island threw off a radiation which extended to the map dowser, one may wonder how that radiation could keep from mixing with the radiations of all other units of water lying between the island and the map of the dowser. There are many other similar problems to be met if the purely physical basis of “waves” and radiations must be considered to the exclusion of the elements of consciousness and the many intangibles which come under the vague general heading of PSYCHIC ABILITIES or PSYCHIC FORCES.
So great is the difficulty of explaining the fact of successful map dowsing (which is too well substantiated by now to be easily denied), that one may wonder if the Aumakua directs the Aunihipili of the dowser to help it put out an aka “finger” to touch the island shown on the map, and then feel around to pick up the water radiations and report them back along the aka thread to the main body of the Aunihipili which is directing the dowsing instrument suspended over the map. As this particular part of the psycho-religious-mechanical field is still in a fine state of being tangled, it would seem folly to rule out the Aumakua as long as the Aunihipili and Auhane are even slightly tolerated as a part of possible explanatory mechanisms.
THE STRANGE “RAYS” OR “BEAMS” of cones and pyramids must not be forgotten at this point while we are speculating. In a Bulletin issued some time ago, I told of Verne Cameron’s discovery that a metal cone picked up some form of force and condensed or focused it into a beam. Such beams proved to have strange qualities. Focused on part of a bed planted with radish seeds, it retarded growth almost completely. The beam could be located and traced for long distances, through walls and other dense obstacles, the Aurameter being used as the measuring and testing instrument. Cones could be hooked up with wires and their power multiplied.
A year or so ago I recall reading in the Journal of the Society of British Dowsers, an article telling of experiments in which pyramids were constructed of metal or cardboard, and placed over objects to observe what might happen to them. Among other things fresh foods, such as meat, failed to decay under the pyramids. They simply dried up and mummified. This mummification without decay had been caused much earlier by certain psychics who treated meats, fish, fruits and the like daily to a dose of radiations from their hands.
Recently, H.R.A Cameron made up a number of pyramids, using the exact dimensions of the Great Pyramid in Egypt, but on a very small scale. He successfully mummified fresh beef and pork, and observed with his usual keen interest several other things which happened.
His prize discovery, to my way of thinking, was that there seems to be a dematerializing effect of sorts produced under the pyramids. He placed a safety razor blade under a pyramid after shaving with it day after day. When I talked last with him he had shaved with it 45 times without any sharpening or other treatment. Usually one blade gives him but three shaves. The only possible conclusion was that something caused the fine edge of the blade to take on fresh sharpness. Magnetizing or repolarizing of the steel particles has been tried but produces no sharpening effect, so that is out. Sharpening is a process of wearing away the material of the edge so that it becomes thin and so sharp. The possibility cannot be overlooked that there is a slight wearing away or dematerializing of the steel which is sufficient to sharpen the blade between shaves.
This leads one to speculate on the question of WHY the Egyptians built pyramids to bury in them the bodies of their kings. Did they know of the preserving and mummifying action which takes place under a pyramid? Even a solid one instead of a shell such as we have been considering? Perhaps the most interesting question is whether or not there was a gradual dematerializing action that affected the body of the king buried in the great stone coffin in the “King’s Chamber” of the Great pyramid. Could the stone resist the action while flesh, bones, clothing and ornaments gradually dematerialized in time? In any event, the stone sarcophagus was found entirely empty when, in modern times, the entrance into the chamber was made, and, so far as I know, the emptiness has never been satisfactorily accounted for.
One might wonder whether the Egyptians might have had a knowledge of the action of the pyramid – its preserving and mummifying action, and that this may have led to the practice of artificial mummification of those who had no pyramid under which to be buried. Or was the knowledge of the pyramid action, even of dematerialization under it, kept as the secret of the few, or was it lost to all in the passage of time, just as Huna became lost as a unit of knowledge and practice? I would not be at all surprised if, some fine day, Mr. Cameron would announce some startling new discoveries in this part of the field. He has the curiosity and the inspiration needed to make for such discoveries, to say nothing of a most unusual assortment of facts stored in his mind to help him understand what would be meaningless to the average engineer. (His book, THE AURAMETER, which completely sold out the first edition, is now through a second printing and again available. If you want one, order direct from Verne Cameron, H.RA., Box S-218, Grand Ave, Elsinore, Calif. Or you can order through B.S.R.A., 3524 Adams Ave, San Diego 16, Calif Price is $3.)
THE PROPER PROPORTIONS FOR A CARDBOARD PYRAMID were given by HRA Cameron (who is also an ordained minister now of the Spiritualist church) in one of his recently made up mimeograph sheets which he gives out to his friends. I quote: “…Germs will not live under a small cardboard model, built to the proportions of the Great Pyramid, that is, about three and one-eighth inches square (base) and three inches high along the corners, laid out from a pattern with two sides three inches and the bottom (or base side) three and one-eighth. … It is important to keep the model standing with one face exactly north by the true NORTH – the compass, remember, points about 15 degrees East of true North.”
Below is a pattern for the sides. The base is not put in as it is furnished by whatever surface the model stands upon. The four sides can be fastened together with adhesive tape of any kind. It might be an interesting experiment to place a small block in the model pyramid to support the razor blade or any other item so that it approximates the location of the King’s Chamber in the large original. This point, about half way from base to peak, and slightly off to one side of a line from the peak falling perpendicular to the base, may be the point of focal energy or of dematerializing action.
I will have to go over to the next page to lay out the side pattern, so may use this space to call attention to the fact that in test seances down the years, the spirit guides of certain mediums have with seeming ease materialized and dematerialized everything from living humans, animals, fish and plants to garments and stones, not to forget ice and such hot things as eggs frying in a skillet. As such action by the unseen force seems plainly under the control and direction of consciousness and will, perhaps one needs to “will” the dematerializing to take place to sharpen the razor blade or kill germs.
Note that when you have finished your model pyramid, the four sides will slant sharply and the apex will be much less than three inches high, measuring from the center of the base. This will throw the position of the King’s Chamber down farther than it appears in my sketch. The floor of it is about one-third of the distance up from the base toward the apex. A block about three-fourths of an inch high placed under the razor blade would be about right as I figure it. To keep your pyramid from standing swanched, you can cut a square cardboard base slightly smaller and stand the pyramid over it in such a way that it will push the sides into the correct square shape. If you put your hands on the pyramid and “will” the action to take place, say twice a day, this may have a decided effect on the results. I have not tried it, but mediums have mummified things with hands, will and vital force applied frequently, without the use of a pyramid. We might try two pyramids, one each way, with and without “will” direction of the force. (According to Huna aka mana theory, you will leave an aka thread connection when you touch the pyramid and the object under it. The action of consciousness, using the mana as the force, and acting along or through the aka thread, would have the directive effect on the force picked up by the pyramid, whatever that force may be.) If you lack a compass, you might rub a needle on a magnet to magnetize it, then carefully drop it on its side into a saucer or cup of water. It will swing to point to the magnetic north, and you can adjust for the error of 15 degrees by the angle plotted above at the right.
Try treating part of the seeds from a packet under the pyramid, then plant both the treated and untreated seeds. The treated ones may show that they have been changed in some way so that they sprout more slowly or less per hundred count. Growing strength may change also. it might also be a good test to plant untreated seeds in a short row with the pyramid placed over one end of the row to see if the seeds outside came up better – in this way checking with HRA Cameron’s radish seed test with the wire leads from cones to bed.
ENEL, FAMOUS FRENCH “AUTHORITY” ON DIELECTRIC RADIATIONS, writes concerning the possible significance of the stone coffin in the “King’s Chamber,” (Page 59 of his book “Radiations des Formes et Cancer)
“Le pendule revele que le sarcophage entier est sous le rayonnement constant du V- emis taut par la forme entiere de la pyramide, que concentre par la structure au-dessus de la chambre royale, qui est formee de quatre elements identiques superposes formant pile. Le rayon que ces quatre elements emettent nest pas suffisant pour momifier ou nuire a la sante d’un*but curatif, soft pour produire un autre effet, dont l’explication m’entraineerait trop loin du but du present ouvrage.” (Later he goes on to say) “… la forme pyramidale emet un rayonnement particulier; 2) quatre elements de preference en forme de pyramides ou hemispheres renverses, macs toes identiques, constituent une batterie qui emet continuellement l’onde mysterieuse que’ nous avons appelee le Vert Negatif.” (Two of the valuable Enel books have just come in as a gift to our research department from HRA S.H. Clemente of Johannesburg, South Africa.)
*(See next page for words left out by accident.)
I gather that Enel thinks that the “chamber of construction” above the “King’s Chamber” is the focus of the negative force on the inside of the pyramidal form of structure. His pendulum test gives a V-reaction on his chart, and he inclines to believe that while there might be a mummification effect, this would not be sufficient to harm the health of the living – might even have curative effects.
HRA Cameron found the negative force led off from an accumulating set of three large cones sufficient to kill in a few minutes a colony of trichina lodged under the skin of his arms. The same force administered to herself by holding the wires, in the case of an elderly woman with mysterious ailments, was reported to have good effects of an indefinite nature. This part of the field seems wide open for much promising research.

FASTING AND SPECIAL DIETS
Fasting and special diets, as described in a 1924 book by a layman named Ehret, was strongly recommended to me a time ago by HRA J.F. Kotnick, who presented me with a copy of the book, Mucusless Diet Healing System, and told me it had cured him after years of failure to get help and when he was in very bad physical condition. I mentioned the matter in one of the part-mimeographed “tinned letters” sent out in the course of my regular correspondence. The “mucusless” diet gets away from milk, eggs and meats, also avoids the refined starch foods, but does not go as far as Oahspe in using no foods grown under the ground. The fasts are to be broken with “First a laxative, later raw and cooked starchless vegetables, a piece of rough bran bread toast. Sauerkraut is to be recommended in such cases. No fruits should be eaten for a long time after fast has been broken. The patient should have been prepared for the fast by a longer transition diet.”
HRA Bond Collier, received one of my “tinned letters” and at once rushed a letter to me, asking that I pass on to other HRAs his experience with this form of diet. He writes, “Beware of it! As a cleansing diet for a few weeks it may be all right, but as a permanent diet it is suicide. I feel very strongly that something should be done about that book. After ten years as a vegetarian, the last five without dairy products or eggs, I have resumed an omnivorous diet. So many factors of an intangible psychic, psychological and philosophical nature enter into the picture that I strongly suspect that the answer is not as simple as the problem of meat-eating versus vegetarianism. The further I get away from the experiment, the more factors I see that played a part in my final breakdown. I paid what may seem like a high price – three badly abscessed teeth, a bad case of stomach ulcers, and several years of diminishing effectiveness in my work – for the information and understanding that I gained, but I consider what I learned to be more than worth the price I had to pay. I feel called upon to write this because of the fact that I was so vociferous about my vegetarianism… I now feel quite confident that if I had used eggs and dairy products, as many vegetarians do, I could have attained and maintained a high degree of energy without actually eating meat itself, providing I had used enough sea vegetables to get sufficient iodine, and enough land vegetables to counterbalance the rich foods.”
LATE NEWS FROM THE SSAW BOOK FRONT
The ad letters are at last all set and are going out at the rate of about 650 a day. Many buyers are very enthusiastic. We also get a chuckle to help along the rather tedious work that goes on hour after hour. One customer, in placing his order, wrote: “You may receive this book back as I am not sold on the extra-terrestrial (?) beings or spirits. They may be for others, but not for me. The book must be very convincing. I am willing to loan you the $4 for the loan of the book. I’ll keep it if convinced.”
He did not sign his name, but typed it in, so I could not use my biometer to see whether he was naturally good or bad, so took a chance and sent the book. This is the note which he sent after receiving the book and reading it. “I am keeping your book, Secret Science At Work, for the simple reason that I LIKE IT, although with the order I advised you that I probably would return it for a refund. No, No! Ten thousand Nos! Keep me posted. I am now studying Dianetics and Scientology, but can get little from it. I think I have a much simpler way to all good – GOD.” (He adds that he “calls himself a psychologist.”) Cheers! We are ALL FOR this customer.
***HERE IS THE PIECE I find was accidentally left out when copying – from the French of Enel. If you care, splice this in and blame Cigbo – who stoutly affirms that his French is at least as good as that of “boss”… “etre Viant, mais au contraire peat etre employe soit dans un …”
NO MORE GIFTS FOR CIGBO need be sent. He absolves all of us from our pledges, having now enough on hand for the final Bulletin July 1st to report on the final biometric readings on our “growth” intensive tests – readings now going on. We may have a quarterly Bulletin of sorts, and Cigbo thinks he may have enough in his box to handle one – especially if “boss” sells lots of books and lays up his back dues. More Guidance is expected on what we will do together later. MFL
