The ‘energy of life’ is a concept that has been around as long as mankind. According to some, it’s even mentioned inn the Bible, where it is called ne shema, which is the “breath of life.” Many scientists, doctors and writers have attempted to locate and harness this energy of life. Dr. Albert Abrams, Dr. Ruth Drown, and Wilhelm Reich to name just a few. Reich called the energy of life orgone. And he constructed a machine, which amplified and emanated orgone energy. Reich maintained his discovery could save humanity from the ravages of disease.
The powers that be considered Reich another nutcase, so they put him out of business and imprisoned him.
In the 1980s, a bestselling book about electromagnetic energy was written and published by a medical doctor. It was called The Body Electric. Was electromagnetic energy the energy of life? The book never propounded a definite opinion. What it did provide was food for thought.
And candidly, it is easy and fun to scoff at such theories. But there are hordes of intelligent people who accept these theories as truth. Just as there are hordes of people who actually believe in miracles and angels.
Trevor James Constable wrote The Cosmic Pulse of Life, in which he expands on what he calls “etherian physics” and the invisibility of UFOs, which are “fundamentally bioenergetic manifestations.” In the Preface to his book, Constable admits that he is rejected because he is “too far out” even within the ranks of UFO adherents.
Constable discusses his ideas, his techniques for discerning bioenergetic manifestations – UFOs – and provides photographs to prove his case. Which means that the book is an amalgamation of history, avant-garde science, an apologia and a call to arms. In the end, Constable is asking for a respectful hearing rather than attempting to convert his readers.
The Cosmic Pulse of Life is an interesting book, which sounds like a cop-out. But it is interesting, because it provides an overview of the research and the people involved in etherian physics. The information presented about Dr. Ruth Drown, who was one of the foremost advocates of ‘radionics’ is worth the price of admission. For Ruth Drown was either the sad victim of a modern witch-hunt or the greatest female huckster in the history of U.S. medicine.
Admittedly, Constable’s book will probably be read only by those referred to as conspiracy theorists or New-Agers, which is a shame. It deserves to be read by a much wider audience, who could then decide for themselves.
