To all those who fought, and are fighting, for against the bitter criticism and injured pride contemporaries, in a desire to create a better themselves, but in order to lighten the burden generations the progress of ideas, of their world: not for of life for future

"I am surprised that scientists of Earth should continue to put their trust in their false science, in spite of all its errors they have so far been unable to rectify, and to deny the supreme science which is God They are like glow-worms enamoured of their own light, crying out to other glow-worms, The Sun does not exist; the light in my tail is the only light there is'" (The Captain of the Flying Saucer)

Preface to Second Edition
WHEN we wrote this book we had not expected so rapid a confirmation of many of our affirmations. A month after the first edition had come off the press a Dutchman announced that he had been in contact with beings from Venus who informed him that another Sun would come into our planetary system, which is in accord with what we wrote. A Professor of Roman Law at the Catholic university of Santos said he had been in contact with the crew of a flying saucer, and his story is similar to ours, including details of the system of propulsion by the creation of a vacuum, which no one had mentioned before this book was published. Counties like the U.S.A. and Great Britain published the results of their researches and announced that they hoped to construct interplanetary craft using ionisation as a means of propulsion similar to that described in this book. We have said that gravity is a combination of phenomena in which the atmosphere plays a large part and beyond which one is almost entirely free from gravity. We showed that all objects have the same rate of fall in a vacuum which disproves Newton's law as it shows that the mass of the objects is attracted by the vertical, component of magnetism. Many "boffins" would be highly amused at this, but the success of the sputniks shows there is some truth in what we have said. The Reds announced that they had launched an artificial satellite weighing 86 kg. whereas the Americans, obstinately clinging to the laws of gravity and relativity, doubted the truth of the Soviet announcement, having calculated that only a satellite of 5kg. could maintain itself in orbit. The Soviets replied by saying that not only was there an 86 kg. satellite in orbit, but that the third stage of the carrier rocket had, contrary to expectations, also gone into orbit round the Earth; and the rocket weighing much more than the satellite. The theory of gravitation is therefore a non sequitur. At this height, free of the atmosphere and subject only to a small proportion of the vertical component of magnetism, the satellite becomes more subject to its horizontal component and moves at a certain speed corresponding to the relation between its mass and the

magnetic impulse. As magnetic lines of force describe a circular path around the planet, both these bodies launched into space went into orbit round us. We should have been happy to have received even the smallest scientific confirmation, let alone this wealth of proof which has accumulated in so short a time. It was apparently not God's will that proof should be lacking, as even the Soviets have declared that planets are repelled by the light of the Sun and not attracted by it. This statement is to be found in our book, and we can go so far as to say that it is the backbone of the system we have described. We could make a long list of all the proofs such as observations of aurorae, properties of electrons, etc., but it would tire the reader's patience as he would have read about these himself in the Press. We would, however, like to publish a letter from the U.S.S.R. addressed to one of our scientific friends:

Please note I was unable to convert the Russian script for the address (web editor) Moscow, 26th September, 1957 Dear Sir~ We have your letter, together with your book My Contact with Flying Saucers which we have passed on to the astronomical section of the Academy of Sciences of the U.S.S.R. (Bolshaya Gruzinskaya St. 10), asking them to reply directly to you. We are of the opinion that Soviet astronomers will be very interested in the work of their Brazilian colleagues. Sincerely, (signed) Constantin Chugunov. (Head of the American Department of Voks). We would like to point out that our friend, who shall remain anonymous, sent a copy of this book to a friend of his in Russia without asking for any comment from the Academy of Sciences. He only wanted to show that the West was taking some interest in flying saucers. Being a scientist and not wishing to give the Russians the impression that he was a raving lunatic, he told his Soviet friend that our book was in the nature of space fiction and was a sample of a new type of Western literature. However, the Head of Voks, who is also a scientist, when he had taken note of the problem, passed it on for study by the greatest academy of science in the world. Surely the Reds are not idiots. Why should they waste their time studying a work of fiction? Could it be that they found something more in it than light reading?

The book was sent off in June and as early as October the U.S.S.R. published the results of its researches on the effect of the repulsion of solar light Far be it from us to say that the fruits of the Soviet scientists' researches were based on this book, but we are in any case grateful for the moral support which we have derived from them. If they accept our scientific theories, may they not forget to take note of our ethical conclusions also. May their hearts ponder on the humanist and religious aspects as fully as their minds have worked on the scientific ones. The deference that has been shown to our book by cultural institutions in the U.S.S.R. is flattering to us and should help to call our authorities' attention not to the book itself, but to the whole subject of flying saucers. If they are loath to follow the Soviet example, they should at least take note of the desperate attempts that the Americans are making to obtain all possible information about flying saucers, which border, in certain cases, on the unscrupulous. This does not apply only to the Americans, but to the Russians as well. Many people have attacked us and even those who believe in the existence of flying saucers are subjected to invective by the incredulous. We have disregarded them and not taken offence. It is not us they are attacking, but Truth, and this, whatever they may say now, will one day triumph. They can no more deter us with insults than pebbles can stop an advancing wave. The wave of Truth will one day break over them and submerge them. Dmo Kraspedon Sao Paulo. November 1957.

THE events which are described in this book have been kept secret since November 1952. We wanted at all costs to keep quiet about them for fear of the criticism of people who believe only in an Earthly life and who could not credit the existence of other human beings in the solar system capable of reasoning in scientific terminology as good as, if not better than, our own. This does not mean to say that our believing in the existence of other inhabited worlds beyond this nutshell in space, of which we are so proud, is just an act of faith; we are convinced that it is highly probable that life is not just an accident that happened to a globe with no special attributes, as ours is. If this is a reasonable premise, then it is also equally possible that there should be an exchange of scientific, spiritual and other ideas between planets. Such exchanges between the inhabitants of other worlds who have been able to free themselves from the shackles that still bind the feet of proud homo sapiens are probably at a higher level than we can conceive of, and for reasons that are beyond our imagination.

so as not to impose on our host. If we have here and there made reference to religion. We had many cash offers for the story which we always declined in spite of our abject poverty. but represents a resume of it. but our attempts to cut the story short merely aroused greater interest. In order to give some moral support to the lad and put him at easer we told him some of the things that had happened to us. we invented some fairy stories about flying saucers which passed the time and gave full rein to our sense of humour. Furthermore. Within a short time we were being pressed from all sides to tell the whole story. as it was our sole intention to make known the viewpoints of the people that man these mysterious craft. It is. We wished thereby to avoid relating minor details which others have already done to good effect. and to whom we had confided a few things. which we had to repeat a number of times. There are certain things which we considered it our duty to withhold. with the result that everybody wanted to know the rest of the story. we were met by about forty people' who had been "specially" invited to hear us. This book does not contain all the information we received. there are other things which we intend to publish in a separate book which do not really come within the scope of a work for the general public. partly in accordance with our informant's wishes. We mention this to show the reader that we never did have. we were to take part in a reunion at the residence of where a young lad was to give an account of a he had made to a distant planet with the crew on one occasion asked one of our generals strange journey which of a flying saucer. it is because we have been forced to do so and because we did not wish the subject . such as this one. which holds so much interest for the world.In spite of our self-imposed silence. difficult for a man to keep quiet about flying saucers. nor have. It was an amusing evening. We gave them some of the facts and remained silent about others which we did not consider relevant at the time. We gave an account of fragments of it. We were surprised that this topic. We have also withheld the details of our first meeting with the flying saucers. When we arrived. As we did not wish to appear discourteous to our hosts. thinking that it was an ordinary social call. As far as was possible we have avoided bringing in religious questions. since an invasion of a territory reserved for those properly ordained might well appear as an impertinence on our part. A certain gentleman who spent most of his time arguing with people who had seen saucers. especially when someone else is holding forth about them. the publication of this book has been brought upon us by force of circumstance. should have been handled so indiscreetly. however. A few days later he invited us to visit a friend of his. and partly on our own judgment. any desire for publicity. promised faithfully not to pass them on.

Hertz and all those others to include among their number the bloodthirsty individual responsible for letting off atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Newton thwarted progress in the field of optics for about a century merely because he drew a wrong conclusion. who have dedicated their lives to the search for true suffer as a result of our being too unwilling to risk the possibility of treading on other people's toes. or doubt his good faith. and to whom we. but only those who pervert it. yet draw false conclusions from it. Kepler. What he can never be forgiven is wilful wrongdoing and the abuse of knowledge endangering the life and most cherished aspirations of his less enlightened and intelligent fellow beings. But we pay our respects to those whose only motivating interest was honesty and love of science. and the little enlightenment that is left to us. and all the efforts of thousands of inquiring minds which only had the common good in view should have been diverted by pseudoscientists towards the destruction of this humanity which produced so many geniuses and which is held in such high esteem by the truly wise. It would be an insult to Newton. and and different principles from those one planet there are men of various white. but nobody could blame him for it. Aristotle's philosophical theories blocked the path of human knowledge for several centuries. We are certain that if errors or omissions have crept into science it is not due to bad faith on the part of the scientists. bound as they were by the limited knowledge of their times and a false appreciation of Nature's laws. Lagrange. Fleming. The thing that appals us is that the long hours. We know that even on ranging from black to . and do not dwell on the mistakes they were in some way or other responsible for. Those who dedicate themselves to the nefarious task of destroying human life no longer have the right to call themselves scientists. in fact. but he was honest with himself and his fellow beings. the sacrifice of lives. It is possible for anyone to make a correct observation. Everything is forgivable in man within the concept of perfection which we hold. Galileo. owe what well-being we enjoy. We do not attack science as such. The remarks in this book do not imply that we disdain the honest efforts made by our scientists and the sincere efforts of thousands of research workers bent over test tubes and various apparatus in search of the unknown. Nor does this book intend to refute the question of flying saucers. We respect their efforts and hold them in highest regard. We could say the same for a great many others in all branches of knowledge where the flash of genius was accompanied by tremendous mistakes. from pigmy to giant. Pascal would turn in his grave if he should one day be compared with the individual who produced the" G" gas. Laplace. other which shown types works which have dealt with describe different types by us.

tried to simplif3r matters. the last thing we -want to do is to give the impression that we are in any way better than the next man. we lay ourselves open to charges of misrepresentation. that he cried out to all the other glowworms: The sun does not exist because the only light there is is the one I carry in my tail. As. We are fully aware of the risks we run. or that we have vast knowledge with which to contradict everything that scientists have proclaimed to date." I remarked. would come along to preach at us or try to convert us to their belief. replied my wife. I hated long biblical dissertations and. Almost every Sunday Protestant parsons. Even if we had taken them down verbatim. We have. we still could not reproduce the whole message. We do not wish to resemble that glow-worm which the captain of the flying saucer referred to. at that time. or ordinary preachers. However." . however. We have confined ourselves to repeating what we heard. If we should later receive confirmation of the ideas put forward. My wife came and told me that there was a parson at the door who wanted to speak to me. It is obvious that the words printed here are not the very ones which the captain of the flying saucer spoke. I suppose we won't. who was so proud of his own light endowed by Nature." If. perhaps this book will be looked upon as having contributed something to the unravelling of the mystery of the so-called" Unidentified Flying Objects. albeit a lamentably poor imitation. "What does he want?" I asked apprehensively. "I don't know. had an aversion to anything that smacked of religion. "No. but it looks as if he wants to preach at you." but never mind. they are not confirmed. we'll go another day. in fact. and used the same reasoning and the same logic as our informant. Dino Kraspedon A Pleasant Surprise The doorbell rang three times. if we don't go today. however. for we believe in other people's honesty. but we remain undaunted." said my wife. I was an atheist in the widest sense of the word. if it turns out that we have been victims of a cruel deception. in an attempt to bring out the spirit of his replies rather than his actual words. We won't be able to go out with the children now.We believe these other stories.

four or five months later." "If you were to offer me the whole Earth. It was a rainy day and visibility was had. As a rule priests dress unostentatiously. after a series of episodes which we will not go into here for fear of digression. a saucer landed and we were given the chance of going inside it and meeting its crew. In November 1952 I was touring with a friend in the State of Sao Paulo. getting up from the armchair and extending his hand. "but I have come to return your visit to my craft." "It was a harmless subterfuge. but you must realise that your wife would be very disturbed if she knew the truth. I went back to the same spot later and spent thee days and nights there in the hope of seeing a saucer again."It's not fair that the children should miss their walk. however. and I remembered where I had seen this type of glove before. especially as I have nothing to offer you but the hand of friendship. As I came face to face with him. The captain was kind enough to explain how they all worked. but then decided that he was probably quite harmless. At the end of our visit. he was only coming to see if he could get me into heaven. this fascinating individual promised to come and see us as soon as he was able. My attention was drawn to the fine weave of his gloves. but maintained an air of politeness. Sitting downstairs. He had a white shirt with a stiff collar. he had come as romised. The will have to go out after lunch by themselves. my wife would certainly be unhappy if she one day . and a blue tie with white geometrical patterns. I found a well-dressed man in a good cashmere suit which fitted his athletic body perfectly. and managed to put on a smile. We stayed on board for about an hour looking at the various pieces of equipment in the machine." I had a good mind to tell the parson I could not see him. I have come." I reassured him. not only because I promised. After all. Only friendship has real value. And now. I accept it with gratitude as I have come to offer you the same thing: my hand of friendship. we were confronted by five saucers hovering in the air. Please excuse me for having presented myself as a parson. it would be worth nothing." "I feel I hardly deserve such a gracious gesture on your part. "and I am grateful to you for it. On reaching the top of the Angatuba range coming up from Parana." he said. On the last night. His shoes did not look as if they had been worn for more than a month or two. I almost lost my voice with surprise. I recognised him as the captain of a flying saucer. "Your surprise is quite understandable. but this one was singularly well turned out. I went downstairs far from pleased. but not the hand of friendship. but because I very much wanted to have the pleasure of seeing you again.

." *1 In the beginning God created. giving dates and places of historical events and the names of the principal figures involved. Or thing is certain however. The whole thing appeared to me as a deception on the part of people of Earth.. At one point I pretended to be day-dreaming and began reciting "hodie si audieritis vocem meam. "I assure you.' My visitor merely smiled. nevertheless his ability to discuss the most varied topics in that language amazed me. "non veni solvere sed adimplere. nollite obdurare corda vestra. harden not your hearts (Heb. "that your suspicions are groundless. I started off by discussing the Christian religion and asked him if he could tell me the first words of the Old Testament in Hebrew. to which he replied promptly and without the slightest hesitation or embarrassment. During lunch I wanted to try out my guest's linguistic ability to see whether he would betray his origin by his accent. When we returned to the sitting-room I decided to try to find out what his scientific knowledge was like... it is one thing to be able to discourse on history and religion and to have the gift of languages." he said. She would be going out and would not be back until the evening. She told me that lunch was ready and that the "parson" was welcome to eat with us." At this point my wife came in with the children. "In fact I had never believed that flying saucers were extraterrestrial. . but it was obvious from what he said that he was extremely erudite. Continuing on the same lines I said " nollite putare quoniarn veni solvere lege aut prophet. if I were a foreign agent I show long since have conquered the Earth. English was the only language he appeared to have any difficulty with at all. Not only was he a linguist.. 2 Today if ye will hear my voice. and you would have pa dearly for your curiosity which led you into my craft. " and asked him how it went on. 3:vii-viii). presenting themselves as beings from another world. and exploiting humanity's vague desire to know that there is other human life within the solar system. He continued . ... Only once in a while would his interpretation of events be slightly at variance with our orthodox point of view. he completed it for me. in order better to carry on some nefarious activity or other."~ I spoke to him later in English and Greek and he answered me m each language perfectly.". ."*1 and proceeded to recite a lengthy passage.thought her husband was mixed up in some subversive activity in partnership with a foreign agent who passed himself off as a gentleman wandering about in space. but there is no doubt that it your duty to be on your guard against possible deception. "Bereshith bara Elohim. I continued the discussion in the same vein without letting him know that he was being put through his paces.

What is your name?" I asked him. but there are also pigmies and people of medium stature. where do you come from?" "I come from a satellite of Jupiter. I cannot say that I have learned anything. do a lot of studying. "I have no name in your sense of the word. and if tomorrow I should be wiser or better. I appear to be lost in a tangle of equations. There is one problem. it is one which I believe may be easy for you to answer. Nature reveals her unity in diversity. We spend vast sums of money on research." *3 Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets: I am not come to destroy." "That is unimportant. The problem is to know whether it is energy or matter that exists in Nature. then. Can you enlighten me?" . and sometimes on Io. often without encouraging results. black or dark. white. I myself.but it is quite another thing to be able to talk on scientific subjects. and the white. but to fulfil (Matthew ~: xvii). "I see." "From which satellite?" "Not from any one in particular. and so on. for whom one name is as good as another. Our names are based on a combination of sounds which would be unintelligible to you. and shall require from you a more detailed explanation. just as you move around from one city to another. but he should also be able to present something more advanced. Well. I would like to make it clear that I shall not be satisfied with some simple academic definition. Today I have one name. the red. On the same satellite we have men who are small or large. for example. "One knows the leopard by its spots. I should have a different one. Though them we know a person's merits and shortcomings." I said. the dark and the black. Earth men are generally tall. On my planet names are a picture of the character of the individual. "We are not all diminutive. whose science has conquered space for you. tell me. You must be aware of our prodigious efforts to make certain discoveries. Obviously when talking about science he should not only show he possessed all the knowledge that we have. but you are tall-over six foot How do you explain this?" I asked him with the object of embarrassing him. which you are obviously in a position to give. If he could not do so. which our best physicists and mathematicians have worn themselves out on. as you can see from my books full of notes. but up to the present. and the mere mention of a parameter in a calculation drives me insane. this would prove him to be nothing more than an inhabitant of this planet. Sometimes I live on Ganymede. Nobody makes up scientific theories on the spot unless he is a genius or unless they do not hold water." "But I have heard that men from other planets are diminutive. even if he is unknown to us.

and owing to the time that has elapsed since some of the outlines may have become blurred. to exclude anything which could offend the viewpoint of existing Churches or sects. Therefore we would like to close it at this point and take up the thread again in the next chapter. We shall refrain from publishing these questions. However. God. We have also tried. and the last at the Roosevelt station in Sao Paulo. With these reservations we shall now proceed with the subjects that appear most interesting to us. which fully confirm the truth of this book. synthesising the whole conversation in the form of questions and answers. that what appeared to be perfectly understandable to us may seem ridiculous to others. but a series of five meetings which took place as follows: Once in the flying saucer itself.The captain of the flying saucer seemed to withdraw his thoughts to some distant point. for fear of prejudicing the main issue. based on notes made at the time. in the part that deals with religion. as a matter of conscience. weighing each word as he said it * * * The object of this chapter is to explain to the reader how it was that we were able to start off a conversation on the highest level with this captain of the flying saucer. once in my home.. The difficulties we faced him with concerning the Bible were fully explained by him. the reason for human suffering. For us his arguments were so satisfying that we became Christians. twice in the main square in Sao Paulo. the resurrection of the body. who shall remain anonymous out of respect for his present high position. we have preserved the essence of the replies. unless we are pressed to do so. It is perhaps important to explain that the two conversations we had in the main square took place in the presence of a professor of physics and mathematics. He gave us answers about the creation of man. It is possible. There is just one thing we would like to state. It is possible that some of the replies do not reflect the true spirit of the captain. or as if he were trying to listen to someone who was speaking to him from the depths of his soul. Matter and Energy . The following pages do not represent the fruits of a single conversation. as though looking for some way of embarking on this subject in a simple manner. In this new chapter we will try to exclude all the unimportant words that passed between us. Then he answered me slowly. etc. however.

Ether only exists around planets for a certain distance. and also to prove to me that He is not a mere decorative figure. Q: Well. then the divine attributes belong to the laws. If He existed. I am certainly not referring to the ether. I would like to give you my views on God. for the very good reason that I could not see what part He had to play in the Universe. You should first investigate the origin of matter and energy. I would also not be able to believe in a God who is subject to anything or to the natural order. it is difficult for me to be explicit. The etheric layers are effects. in whom I could never believe. what are His attributes. but I am not God. giving you the simplest possible definition. Lacking the basic terms of reference. But creation itself is above the law. because legal statutes are only made for its protection. I could never believe in the existence of God. it becomes oppressive. so He is the judge who judges the law. but are not aware Q: Are you referring to the ether? A: No. that could be considered to be above everything that is. Light is a . and God becomes a mere subject. If He is subordinate to the law. He should play the leading role. energy and the movement. theological ones rather than mathematical. God judges. and for the maintenance of order. and if laws operate on Him. A: There is a certain truth in your scepticism. what is His nature. what He is composed of. mostly of a mechanical order. and is not judged on any question. but if instead of protecting them. the legislator has the power to modi4r it according to his discretion. Q: What particular terms are you referring to? Mathematical ones? A: No. I am also subject to law. Q: What have matter and energy to do with theology? A: Man can only truly understand the phenomena of Nature when he understands the nature of God. I do not know the appropriate terminology in your language. but a supreme God who is above any law.A: Your question was badly formulated. seems to resolve itself into specific laws. I do not wish to be shown a God subject to mechanical laws. It is useful for the protection of created beings. But to me there never appeared to be any arbitrary principle capable of influencing the general order of things. The Creator is above the thing created. how He acts and what influence He has on created things. as both are expressions of something else which you see and feel. and reigned eternally. What I mean to say is that I lack the basic term of reference because you reason in a different way.of bodies. that which subordinates Him is superior. He is the lawgiving principle whenever lawgiving becomes necessary for the good of creation. in fact everything. and is nothing more than a type of matter. He is like a system of axes in which the point of intersection of the lines is (isotropic: That which exhibits equal physical actions in all directions. It is up to you to tell me what He is. not causes. because matter. Law is nothing more than a convention and presupposes a legislator. God is an isotropic' line parallel to itself and vibrating on itself at right angles.

Please remember that this is an attempt to explain. Supposing we take this generator and enclose it in an airtight vessel. If they had existed for all eternity they would have coexisted with God and the Father could not have been the Creator of something which was as eternal as He. the unexplainable. propagated in wave form. we still get a flow of electrons as soon as we start the rotor turning. Q: Did you say created? A: I mean created because there was a time when they did not exist. pulls an electron away with in point. but it is absurd to believe that the moment of inertia of a vector in space could be transformed into energy. There is a relationship between energy and the force that imparts acceleration to a body. because dimensions are contained within Him.) everywhere at the same time. 'when these are per-mutated-to use a terrestrial definition-" n" equals infinity. If it is absurd to say that a vector moment creates energy. they were generated within the magnetic field. All that happened then was that the rotor moved inside the generator and caused a deformation of the magnetic space. There is an experiment that Earth scientists have done to prove this: a gamma ray (a gamma ray is of electro-magnetic origin). in human language. The deformation that the points M' of the mass M of the rotor brought about in the magnetic field corresponds to the force of gravity in the water in a turbine. when passing close to a nucleus. The only rational explanation . To explain this phenomenon they devised the rather thin hypothesis that the ray's acceleration was transformed into energy. The "how's is what we shall study. On the basis of this premise we can now go further and see how matter and energy were created. but where? They do not come from anywhere. How? They are the result of a deformation brought about within the magnetic field by the movement of the rotor. I myself used to wonder where these electrons came from. They must have come from somewhere. Water activates a turbine. in other words that an electron is a particle. An eloquent proof that the electron is a wave form and not a particle is obtained by refracting it through a spectrum. it would be even worse to say that this moment generates matter. we can define the electron as deformed magnetic space. God acted as a transformer and created them. Then He is many. It is true that the moment of inertia of the gamma ray is changed. the atmospheric pressure would remain the same. but only a certain relationship. we immediately get a flow of electrons which move along the surface of the conductor. This being the case. but the gravitational force which activated the water could never be turned into electrical energy. Your attention must have been drawn to an interesting peculiarity of electricity: if we turn a rotor in a magnetic field formed by a magnet. and if we had a pressure gauge inside the vessel we would see that in spite of the large current flowing between the two conductors.

an electron perpetuates its vibration within a field without losing its characteristic wave structure. the mechanical movement of the body that a gamma ray. However much energy an electron may have. Q: But if the gamma ray. If an electron were a particle. These wave structures have the property of moving through a field. being of electromagnetic origin. or remaining stationary within it. does create electrical energy. The first law of thermodynamics is called the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat. supposing an electron to be a particle.(5) The laws of physics are immutable. this system is used to a great extent by us in order to obtain energy more about this later. This being the case. Let us go further. Thus it could be said that if one put obstacles consisting of nuclei in its path. is applied to it. does not move unless an exterior force sets it in motion. how can one reconcile this with the structure of an atom? How can waves rotate round a nucleus? A: If waves cannot rotate round a nucleus. As a wave form(7) however. it must have come out of something. When this is exhausted. this does not happen as the movement and stability of an electron in its orbit is dependent neither on time nor thermodynamics. an electron revolving round a nucleus would use up this energy in a short time. In any case the alteration was brought about in the space occupied by it at that moment. All the intrinsic energy of an electron. whose mass in turn must have been diminished. on being deformed. If one concedes that an electron is a wave form. An electron is a stationary wave form within an atom. We must also bear in mind that a body. its high speed would make it fly off at a tangent from the atom owing to its centrifugal force. As it happens. That is to say it lost a certain proportion of its frequency or its wave compression.(6) A given quantity of energy is required for a body to carry out a given amount of work. Q: Your reasoning is very interesting. deformed itself for an instant near the nucleus and from this deformation an electron was created which must therefore be a charge of wave form.(8) . A: The gamma ray lost nothing other than acceleration. particles certainly cannot. Nevertheless if a force of i gr. we could create as many electrons as its frequency allowed. a corresponding impulse is transferred to the sphere. If one charges a sphere with a considerable amount of energy. would be of no use to it unless there were an exterior force to impart acceleration to its mass. it must be a limited amount of energy. it still does not move. However. however much energy of its own it may have.

The physicists reasoned that if the basic phenomena are arbitrary that the force which gives rise to these must also be arbitrary. (*8)If the electron is a wave form having its origin in space. a caloric is the amount of energy obtained from a body of one kilogramme falling through 427 metres. the whole concept of modern science would fall to the ground. It would contradict the principal argument of Planck's theory which asserts that an electron is a particle whose energy is stepped up in "quantic jumps. Being unable to locate the point in space where it was to be found at any given time. He saw that this minute electron seemed to be ubiquitous. and appeared to be unaware of. we would arrive at a speed 100 times that of light. which shows that the electron is a wave form. Later. he developed his "Uncertainty Principle"(8) _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________ (*5) The scholar Antonio J. any mathematical laws. This was also the death of the laws of cause and effect because it was not possible to conceive of identical effects originating from different causes. since it appeared at all points. these defractive images are produced. appearing at all points in an orbit at the same instant. He based this theory on the fact that these arbitrary phenomena in the U eventually gave rise to a definite pattern. Transverse measurements taken by producing bands of interference from parallel slits indicate that a quantum has a width of about 6 metres. (*7) If photographic plates are bombarded by parallel streams of electrons. They appear as concentric rings. B. It would also lead to the collapse of our conception of light and all the mechanics of relativity. in isolated cases. which science admits is impossible. in his work The Theory of Photons (page 208). de Miranda. states that if an electron were an homogeneous particle its speed of revolution around the nucleus would be 268 times that of light. This showed that Nature. And if we were to consider an electron as a cylindrical particle. (*9)The "Uncertainty Principle" exploded the scientific theory of determinism. longitudinal measurements taken by producing interference by echelons down to a microns indicate that the wavelength of a quantum is in the order of I metre. (*6) The Mechanical Equivalent of Heat is the number of kilogramme/ metres required to produce a calorie. Dirac showed that the concept of the Universe as a collection of measurable phenomena of constant and definite form was possibly correct. On page 15 of the same work the author says "the problems of the dimensions of the quantum have puzzled physicists.Even Heisenberg felt that he could not account for all the electronic movements in an atom. That force must therefore possess freedom of action in the widest sense of the word. and act as it pleases apparently purposely unaware . acted in a completely arbitrary manner and did not conform to. Thus.

you will see how this inverts the image. Q: There is. each having its particular wave structure and frequency. Using Newton's laws of physics that all bodies can be considered points in space. . _____________________________________________________________________ _________________ Thus the so-called orbits K-L-M'0 are nothing but stationary electrical waves in the field of the atom. its characteristics are in consequence virtually unlimited. there is no explanation for molecular cohesion. making white appear as black and black appear as white. e. It is known that waves of varying length do not interfere with one another as is shown by radio. As an electron has a variable wave form. You say a body or particle cannot move indefinitely through space without losing its energy. in spite of the fact it showed this desired precision when the secondary effects which make up the visible Universe were created from the primary phenomena. outside interference.

"In reality the action of short radio waves on television brings about various effects. to completely inverse their characteristics. infallibly arriving at the same result using different means to do so every time. then it is evident that such an effect could never be produced by a particle. if it is possible to deform the sweep of electrons which form the television picture. for example." If we do not regard an electron as a wave form. and that these phenomena which we believe to be causes are nothing more than effects. On the other hand you say that all bodies require a force to impart acceleration to them.of the precision required by science. however. If. even more interesting phenomena occurs. something that is not clear to me. If still shorter waves are used. and taking for the moment the Earth as a simple particle. you connect up your television and set up interference by means of short radio waves. These phenomena only occur when ultra short waves and television sets with anti-magnetic circuits are used. In this peculiarity of an electron. the reception of distant foreign stations. Thus. the superimposition of extraneous images. and the appearance of unknown human forms. we get two movements which are contrary to your theory: the first is the rotation of the Earth. In fact it appeared to the physicists that behind the laws of physical phenomena there was an Intelligence with well-defined aims. Thus we reached a point where we could state that the principal cause of phenomena is an Intelligence. even though 'they occupy the same area of space. the transformation of positive into negative. accidents appertaining to a substance which in its entirety gives rise to the visible Universe.

in the upper layers of its atmosphere. . extending almost to a vacuum. the black sides absorb sunlight. Solar energy is absorbed by the black faces.A: Quite. The analogy that physicists wish to see between movements of stars and planets and the movement within the atom is false. you get as far as that. 'with the way things are going in the world. more specifically. In the atom we have stationary waves in a state of permanent vibration. It should be noted that in the radiometer the atmospheric pressure inside the bulb needs to be low. I can tell you that this phenomenon will be one of the difficulties which will face you when you come to make interplanetary voyages-that is if. which gives rise to a difference of potential and causes the vanes to rotate on their axis. is subject to a difference of potential or. because later when we talk about its movement in orbit. to continue the explanation of how rotation arises. So. a binary potential difference. Earth also. and begin to rotate around their axis. I). The vanes are painted black on one side and white on the other. having one hemisphere in sunlight and the other in darkness. this knowledge will be invaluable to us. and turns about its axis. otherwise the blades will not rotate. This little apparatus gives an idea of the movement of the Earth. it would still move through space. In this apparatus the blades are subject to a potential difference. The case of the Earth is quite different and quite simple. (*12) Airmen who make parachute descents from a great height get into violent spins and are only able to control this movement when they reach the denser layers of the atmosphere. Earth is a body impelled by constant force. The intensity of the movement depends upon the intensity of the sunlight that the black faces are able to retain (see Fig. has this low pressure. Earth also. FIG I RADIOMETER. This phenomenon is the same as that which occurs in a radiometer. It was a good thing you mentioned the rotation of the Earth. Even if Earth had no energy of its own.

I could continue this proof up to a high level.~~ We have already shown that superimposition of lines of force on a certain point constitutes a deformation of space. God is an oscillating charge superimposed on an infinite point. We will now see how things are created in the Universe out of nothing. From this you can see that the phenomena of Nature are simple. This continual creation of energy in the Universe gives rise to an internal pressure in the nebulae which can be seen in the phenomenon . If this definition of the Universe is correct. thus reducing the atmospheric pressure on it. can be regarded as a system of axes. we can regard the whole Universe as its centre. constantly causing a deformation of space. The fact that the lines of force are consequently unable to escape from the ubiquitous centre and are always encompassed by the Being of God. But as there is no such thing as interior or exterior. the body at once begins to rotate?' This is due to one side of the body receiving more light and heat than the other. nothing whatsoever would exist. and in consequence. Let us be satisfied with this for the moment. As the centre of this axis is everywhere. being an isotropic line. matter. the whole Universe being a centre of lines of force. continually exerting its influence on the un manifest. all the lines resulting from the isotropism of God will be found to be oscillating on one point. from which an infinite number of lines go out in all directions. makes Him an Immanent figure. all resolving themselves into readily understandable laws which need very little analysis or understanding. We said that God. Thus. The remedy lies in balancing out the difference and supplying light and heat to the colder side. we might get somewhere. if a body rises to a certain height above the Earth. If God did not exist. Thus all the points M' of a body were taken as a single were to regard universes as points instead of scattered masses. quite a simple solution to this problem. but people not used to these heights might suffer from dizziness. if the lines cannot move out from the Being of God. they can only move within it. and automatically creating energy. (*13) Science made a great step forward when Newton regarded all bodies mere points. This is what we are trying to prove in the question of electrons. however.There is. Having satisfied ourselves on this point. so as to keep to the point. we will leave the explanation of the revolution of the Earth in orbit round the Sun until later. We may therefore call the Universe a point of infinite osci1lation.

This reconstitutes the energy that had been used for condensation of the matter."14 As a result of this internal pressure they move away from one another. of a system so a system which out the directing all However. which would cause their mass to condense. at a certain point. and that the nebulae will later return to the point of departure. An interesting one is one suggesting that this flight might he a pure periodic movement. The most generally accepted theory is. where they appear to fly away from each other. that space which had been transformed into matter endeavours to return to its former state of primordial space in accordance with the law of rotation of masses in a magnetic field. It is strange that a priest should be able to conceive completely different from that revealed by the Church. This is what takes place on the Sun. . My answer to this would be that energy created outside a galaxy tends to be drawn into the galaxy. (2) As the nebulae move apart. was an immense radioactive atom which. and under this pressure they move away from one another. condensing itself into material form. many millions of years ago. Thus we have an internal pressure coupled with an external decompression. however. The flight of the nebulae is a well-known phenomenon. moving out from a hypothetical centre. it is known that things did not happen that way. Light from a myriad of suns in the various galaxies produces a very great force of repulsion on all the nebulae. turning it into light. in a sense. however. became completely disintegrated. On the other hand.known as "the flight of the nebulae. If such external factors had indeed existed. You may raise the objection that this pressure is also applied in the direction of flight so that the internal pressure coupled with the external one would make them stable and they would not move apart. Leaving aside the reaction that they bring about on the planets. Various theories have been put forward. brought serious difficulties in its wake for if we all originate from one single "atom. This might be described as a sistolic and diastolic movement of the Universe. there could have been no disintegration if external factors had not upset the internal movement. was born of an accident in Nature and appears to leave question of an Intelligence acting as a superior power activity. The flight of the nebulae prevents condensation taking place for three reasons: (i) This movement causes the interior pressure to disappear. the "radioactive atom" would not have been the only thing in existence and the Universe could thus not have begun in this manner. (3) Light repels magnetic fields. that of Father LeMaitre who thought that the Universe." all bodies in Nature should be of the same age. His theory. However. the Sun's discharges into space are. nebulae appear to maintain an acceleration caused by an internal pressure within the Universe. whose wave energy goes on decreasing until the moment of entropy is reached. matter returning to its original state of primordial space. the nebulae being fragments of this original atom. We shall have more to say about this force of repulsion later. celestial bodies are of different ages.

Earth with its poles also has its secondary fields. because in order to explain it fully there is one other thing in connection with the Sun that needs to be studied: Terrestrial science states that the Sun is the centre of the planetary system. Note.create and destroy. however. The Father is the generator of energy. which is called matter. turns it back into energy. for example. Q: You said you were going to talk about the movement of the Earth in orbit. is a magnetic field. But there are limits to the things we can create. Earth. We are spirits but not of the nature of God. which in turn is a field within the Milky Way. Not only can He create matter. That would be beyond its power. but God is the Unmanifest. and are sources of life and have the power to deform space. But these other beings who are of a similar nature to the Father constitute with Him a single unit. which the people of Earth have unfortunately not yet discovered. albeit a different form to that found in matter. theory. deform space. and if we were to dissociate ourselves from God. within a field of our system. by an opposite process. and your If He can create space and create my friend. they are of a similar nature to Him. but He also created others who have a nature akin to His own. and the spirits are merely a form of energy. Thee Dutch have put a lot of research into this question. The Milky Way is a vast magnetic field. thus re-establishing the balance. A: The Earth's movement through space is partly a result of its rotation. let us give homage to them. A spirit can create to a certain extent. and what you call energy is nothing more than a phenomenon of transition between primordial space and deformed space. in themselves eternal. but only deformed space. within which the Sun and the planets move. A: Not all of them. but nothing is beyond the power of God. and therefore in some degree manifest. Everything comes from God and everything returns to Him. when they discovered that the point of equilibrium of the solar system lay at a distance from the Sun equal to three times its diameter. but a magnetic field contains within itself secondary fields. we would die spiritually. Only the Creator. for example. God is spirit. as He did. that we have no means of refitting your explanation fascinates me. which is not the case. whose nature is different.In the first instance God supplied the power that brings about the deformation of space and the Sun. However. These are His Sons. energy and spirit.(*15) (15) Many scientists already suspect that there may be other magnetic centres on Earth. Spirits are created. that I said partly. matter. Q: I assure you. Life does not belong to us. That is why neither matter nor energy exist. independent of other know poles. I would like to hear about that. within limits. No spirit can create another spirit. Herschel and Newton mathematically proved the existence of our magnetic field. can it be said that all spirits can deform also.

(18) The weight of light is equal to 410 of atmospheric pressure per square mile. which we may call "point zero. its orbit round the Sun represents the balance between these two actions of attraction and repulsion. Given the form of the terrestrial orbit. 2) Now. A force of attraction is exerted on the Earth by this magnetic point of equilibrium of our system. this pressure of light will be greater on the upper atmosphere. due to the movement of the planets around space. It is round this point of equilibrium that the Sun moves.(18) I told you that light is deformed space turning itself back ' (16) According to science this point is where the equilibrium of the masses is to be found." While being attracted by this point. Lebedev and Nichols discovered the same thing. a body in space can only be in a state of equilibrium if two contrary forces meet to support it. until the present time. If there were only a force of . However. Matter having undergone atomic interaction has no influence on other matter at a distance. repelled. as yet it is difficult to calculate the action of these forces because we have not had. Earth is being repelled by the light from the Sun. Has the weight of light not been measured? What is it but a pressure constantly exerted upon matter? If the Sun exerted attraction its light would not have weight. equal to that of Earth. However. The Sun appears to revolve round this point.17 Q: Repelled by the light of the Sun? A: Yes. if the Sun made a revolution round this point of equilibrium its movement should also take 365 days. It is wrong to say that matter attracts matter in the direct ratio of mass and in the inverse of the square of distance. As long ago as 1873 Maxwell showed that radiation exerts a pressure. The meeting of these two conditions of space causes quite a marked pressure (see Fig. If the captain of the flying saucer is correct. its orbital movement would become spiral and it would finish by colliding with the Sun. and matter can be attracted by a magnetic field.proportion of 1 to 700 in the relative mass of the planets to that of the Sun. I told you that light is deformed space turning itself back into primordial space. The same force of repulsion that makes nebulae fly apart affects Earth and the rest of the planets. a satisfactory mathematical solution to the problem of the three bodies. magnetic fields attract or repel one another. (17) Newton showed that if Earth were to be only very slightly attracted. but a contrary effect.

attraction without a corresponding one of repulsion, the planet would move towards the point of attraction.19 I have already shown you that if the repulsion were caused solely by centrifugal force, the planet would slowly spiral in, towards the source of attraction. Earthly mathematics themselves confirm this. Without the repulsive force of the Sun, there would, however, be no circular movement. There would be neither axial rotation nor orbital revolution. A body impelled in one direction only does not move in another direction. How could Earth move in orbit in a different direction to this repulsive force? Surely a thrust from one direction cannot give rise to another at right angles to itself? In order to understand the phenomenon of revolution we must regard the true diameter of the planet not as that of its solid mass, but as the sum of its solid and gaseous parts. The true diameter can be obtained from the following formula:

Terrestrial radius x speed of revolution -------------------------------Speed of rotation of the globe (= 407,200 km.).

Your planet rotates on its axis at 1,660 km. per hour, and revolves in its orbit at 1o6,ooo km. per hour. This gives a value of 407,200 km. for the radius of the total gaseous envelope. If we subtract from this figure the radius of the Earth (6,378 km.) we see that the terrestrial ether extends 400,822 km. beyond the solid surface of the planet (see Fig. 3). The Moon, then, lies within the fringes of the etheric covering, so that the various phenomena connected with it take place within this covering. The etheric covering acts as a fulcrum by virtue of which (*19) in mathematics a body in space only has equilibrium when two contrary forces act upon it, whose result equals zero.

Fig. 2. FORCES WHICH MAINTAIN EARTH IN SPACE. Earth is simultaneously attracted by the magnetic centre of the system and repelled by the light of the Sun. According to the captain of the flying saucer, this light repels the magnetic field of Earth in the same way as a ray of light from a star is repelled and so deflected on approaching the magnetic centre of our system. The movement of the Earth in orbit is the result of its speed of rotation and the extent of its etheric covering, which acts as a supporting medium allowing it to revolve under the action of the two simultaneously opposing forces. Its orbit round the magnetic centre is not eccentric because the Sun moves round the centre in the same time that the Earth takes to move round the Sun. Thus the orbits of the planets are affected whenever the come into conjunction with or p ass through opposition to the Sun and the magnetic centre, causing both their speed of rotation and velocity in orbit to increase or decrease. The greater deflection of light near the poles causes a drop intemperatur4 whereas at the Equator a strong concentration of light gives more heat. The elliptical orbits of the planets are yet another consequence of the interaction of the two forces. If the magnetic centre lies between a planet and the Sun, the force of attraction is predominant and the planet is drawn in. However, if the Sun is between the planet and the centre, the force of repulsion predominates and the planet moves out, its path disturbed. As the position of the Sun changes in relation to the "point zero" centre, each successive aphelion and perihelion of a planet occurs in a different position.

the two opposing forces of attraction and repulsion are able to act upon the Earth. This gives us 814,400 km. as the effective overall diameter of the planet. The whole moves with an angular velocity, supported by the opposing forces, upon a given plane. It is moved in its orbit just as a turning wheel moves forward over the ground. We see, then, that the same force which causes rotation, moves the body through space. In the case of Earth, the rotational force is applied to the solid surface at a distance of 6,378 km. from the axis, but the effect of its movement through space occurs at 407,200 km. from the axis, at which point the surface of the etheric covering attains a speed of io6,ooo km. per hour. Having explained this, we can understand why planets of large volume are situated at a considerable distance from the Sun. By taking note of their distance from the Sun and their volume, we can discover their true density, and this will also give us the magnetic force of its poles. Thus the planet Jupiter is of low density and, having a large diameter, it is more subject to the force of repulsion than that of attraction.(*20) If it were true that matter attracted matter in direct proportion to the mass of the bodies, Jupiter, with a volume 1,330 tunes greater than Earth and 331 times as much mass, should be much closer to the Sun than Earth is. Once the speed of rotation of a planet and its velocity in orbit are known, we can work out the extent of its gaseous envelope. This cannot generally be observed by telescope. You will see from the foregoing why celestial bodies move in elliptical orbits. The problem involves the movement of three bodies, and terrestrial mathematics have not yet found any suitable equation to solve this problem involving eighteen unknown factors. If no suitable solutions have been found to problems involving three bodies, imagine an equation involving the whole solar system with eight, nine or ten bodies, and the number of unknown factors to which this would give rise.

All the planetary orbits will be altered. the shock produced by its contact with the etheric covering of the Earth will smash it to pieces.

There will certainly be a change in the fauna. 4. then the satellite will attach itself to the planet. stanza 4r: "La grande estoile par sept jours bruslera Nuee fera deux soleils apparoir.) One of the satellites of Mars will be torn from its present orbit and thrown into space. but life will continue. If this happens to be against the direction of rotation of the Earth. The entry of this new body into the system was predicted by Nostradamus in his famous Centuries. When the new Sun reaches it maximum luminosity the Earth will already be in its appointed place in the system. The entry of a new Sun into our system would throw the Earth out into an orbit between Mars and Jupiter now occupied by the planetoids. Its trajectory will be such that it will become a satellite of the Earth.

At that time the possibility of reaching other planets by balloon was being investigated so in this book Allan Kardec invokes the spirit of Poitevin. diameter is over 3. For example.600 sq. With an atmospheric pressure of 1. By maintaining the vacuum in the direction of its flight. can only be moved if some difference of energy potential is created. It is also very easy to manoeuvre. we can calculate that the force operating on a saucer of 20 m. since this vacuum can be moved in any direction. diameter.141.278. cm. Any object.272. even. and asks him about the future of this type of craft Poitevin predicted that there was no great future for balloons. which 'was translated into Portuguese and incorporated into a publication entitled Poitevin the aeronaut. per sq. we get pir radius cubed= 3. "You did not ask me whether you would be able to visit other planets by this means. in the case of a saucer 'with a diameter of 200 ft. the smallest type of saucer develops a thrust of approximately 3 million kg.000 tons.. and its solution would fill your 'world 'with 'wonder. diameter is equal to 3.8 kg. therefore. is a tremendous source of power. cm. the saucer can move at any speed and without creating any friction with the atmosphere. For those who are interested in communication with the spirits of the departed. ~ balloonist. The atmospheric pressure developed on a saucer of 65 ft. This. the pressure developed would be some 30. But this problem has given much food for thought. as the surface of the saucer. Saucer in horizontal flight. 5. with a saucer of 20 m. whereas even your most powerful aeroplanes cannot develop more than a few thousand kilogrammes of thrust.

You run up against it in your every move. Even supposing they did overcome gravity this way. I told you at the beginning that you should not expect too much from the present system. if it were not for these we would be crusted by the volume of gas above us.You can imagine how long it would take to traverse the inconceivable vastness of space. hurricanes and an unbelievable increase in the atmospheric pressure and in the intensity of solar radiation. and is therefore better than the human eye which can only take in a certain angle of vision at one time. The saucer's "eyes" consist of television apparatus paced at various points on the outside of the craft. which would consequently be subject to friction. since one half can take the full force of the atmospheric pressure. and would still need a propellant to supply the power. Not even the strength of sixteen horses could achieve this. while the other is immersed in a vacuum. be perfectly feasible to construct a saucer on Earth. It was in 1654 that he tried to pull two hemispheres apart in which he had created a vacuum. Unfortunately a craft of this type could be used in war. therefore. Its covering could be made of any material. and the ensuing friction with the atmosphere 'would limit their speed considerably. the disturbance of these upper layers can cause torrential rainstorms. since the difference of pressure at various points of their surface would break them. they would only be able to move in one direction. which would create havoc inside the saucer. which relay to a screen in front of the pilot. Saucers do not cancel out gravity. the possibilities are enormous. A great danger hangs over the Earth as a result of atomic explosions. If saucers cancelled out gravity. It should. The fulcrum that you seek is always before you and encloses you on every side. Before this he had seen atmospheric pressure crush a copper boiler in which the pressure was low like a piece of paper. as there 'would be no friction with the atmosphere. Distance would not be a factor. even if we were carried there by wind or steam But to get back to the main subject. ships and trucks could be . They could be any shape although the saucer shape is the ideal one. This is why many people have been told that their source of energy was Nature herself. The saucer could not be fitted with glass windows. but they derive their power from the atmospheric pressure itself. it hinders your flight and acts on everything you touch. Meditate well on this and work on this revelation as much as you can. they would still possess a certain 'weight in relation to the air. as was at first thought. but that you will achieve far more by utilising the high and permanent pressure of the air. This screen covers all directions simultaneously. The movement of the air in the upper layers of the atmosphere supports this incredible pressure. The speed and manoeuvrability of a cube shaped craft would be impaired owing to air resistance on its sides. but it would also revolutionise our transport systems if it could be constructed on Earth." Otto de Guericke was the first to notice the tremendous pressure of the atmosphere. when it takes light several years to travel the millions of millions of leagues.

dispensed with, as loading and unloading could take place anywhere without having to build special landing fields.

In a standard transport saucer, this pressure would be much greater. With a craft of room. diameter, we would get a thrust of 78,540,000 kg. and with one of 200 m. diameter the thrust would be 314,160,000 kg. There is no limit to the size or capacity of these craft. We construct big cargo carriers up to 600 m. diameter with a payload of almost 300 million kg. This is more or less "theoretical because we never use the whole cargo carrying capacity of these giant freighters. If we did so, we would not have sufficient force available to develop high speeds. When we undertake any interplanetary journey we use a low capacity craft. The size depends on the object of the visit. Generally saucers with a diameter of 20 metres are the handiest. These craft, fully equipped, weigh 250,000 kg. The total capacity of this craft would be 3 million kilos, but we use this margin of power to enable us to operate at high speeds. A ship could never develop energy on this scale, not even atomic energy can compare with the forces of Nature. And Nature does it without poisoning the atmosphere! Is it clear to you now? Q: I understand. What an extraordinarily simple process!

A: Yes, it is simplicity itself. It is just a question of knowing how. But it would not be complete unless I told you how we set about creating a vacuum externally. First I will explain to you how the saucer is steered. We can move this vacuum in. any direction. Course is set by operating an ordinary lever on a hemispherical mounting which moves the vacuum in the required direction. If we wish it to go in a particular direction, we produce a vacuum on that side of the saucer, and immediately the atmosphere produces a pressure on the opposite side pushing us in the direction of the vacuum. Let us imagine that we are moving in level horizontal flight, if we wish to make a right-angled turn, all we have to do is move the vacuum to the top, or to one of the other sides, and we shall move at the same speed in the new direction. We can change direction abruptly and do not need to describe curves. Do you understand now? Q: Yes, I see the whole import of it. This can revolutionise all our concepts of aerial navigation. It is a diabolical piece of machinery. A:It depends on the use to which it is put. I stlll have faith in humanity and promise that if one day you can agree to abolish war, I will personally come and help you achieve these results, and other more important ones. I shall teach you how to make life a paradise. But as I was saying, we create a vacuum and, to use your words, a "diabolical" thrust. Friction, however, does not arise as we are always moving into a vacuum. And without friction the craft does not heat up. We often need extra heating to keep ourselves warm, because the vacuum causes a drop in temperature. There are no technical difficulties involved in producing an external vacuum. You know that cathode rays have the strange property of decomposing the atmosphere through which they pass. Under the action of these rays, the elements of the atmosphere revert to their etheric state. In addition to this we make cathode rays intersect the anode rays at an angle of 45 degrees. This we achieve by using high voltage and current. Q: Where is the cathode ray apparatus situated? A: All over the peripheral area. That is to say, the whole of the outer edge of the craft acts as a cathode ray emitter. These rays are deadly and can only be projected outwards. If a human being were to be exposed to rays as powerful as the ones we use, his cells would be destroyed, and he would suffer lethal burns. But inside the craft there is less radioactivity than in the air that is breathed on Earth. The coloration that saucers appear to give off in flight is caused by these rays, the same thing happens in a Crookes or Geissler tube. They are a result of the low pressure or vacuum that we create. If we wish to go very fast, we use an absolute vacuum, and move through space in a flash. At other times, we use a semi-vacuum, and we move more slowly. The intensity of the vacuum is proportional to the current used and is controlled by a rheostat. If we want to follow an undulating course we use a pulsing current.

When we are using a semi-vacuum, you observe a luminosity around us at night; but if we are using an absolute vacuum we become invisible because light does not exist in a vacuum." This is the reason why people always say that we appear to be stationary and suddenly vanish and appear in another spot. I must admit that other methods are also used, such as the bismuth system, which is still used on some craft to set up a difference of energy potential, in fact this was the system we used to use at first. (The captain described this other process to us, but as it was a complex one we would rather not repeat it here.) After having travelled around for some time in these bismuth crates, a Being from another planet explained to us how to use a simpler method. Now they are only used for space travel by enthusiasts as a kind of sport, just as you still use sailing boats. That, my friend, is how you can make a craft as fast as, or even faster than, a flash of lightning. (*23) A diminution of the pressure in cathode ray tubes causes the light in them to disappear. Light therefore is an atmospheric effect, and if it were possible for us to live in a vacuum we would be in darkness. Q:I filly accept the explanation you have given Of course, a craft which could create an external vacuum should have great manoeuvrability; motive power and payload. It appears to me, however, that this system would not be very good for getting away from the Earth. It is easy to manoeuvre as long as there is atmospheric pressure. But at a certain height, unless our calculations are basically wrong, this pressure goes down to nothing. I would like you to talk frankly about the method you use to escape from the Earth, because what you have told us so far is only part of the answer. A: You are forcing me to elucidate a vital point, which I would have preferred not to tell you. Once you know this, we shall no longer have any security and would run serious risks due to man's innate love of conquest. But no one can refuse to tell the truth when he is asked. I will tell you everything, but you must promise to keep secret the means by which we produce this force. Q: Does this mean that I am not to tell it to other people? A: Of course. If there were nothing in what I have to tell you I would not be imposing conditions. But you must use your own judgment. I cannot forbid you passing on to others information which could contribute to the well-being of the community. But I insist that the information that I give you concerning means of destruction must be kept for yourself only. What I want to tell you could bring destruction even to us as it would make it possible for you to reach our homeland. The menace that hangs over the world as a result of human technological development would be upon us, and it might turn men into devils. If you approve of the other things I tell you, you may talk about them and carry them out. And if at any time any technical difficulties should arise, I shall be ready to help you solve them. It is sufficient for you to call upon me in thought, and I shall know, even at a distance.

electrons and anti-electrons. Further. matter and anti-matter. A body made of anti-matter would be expelled from matter." but the label is of little importance. However. but we know that the magnetic field is made up of the "electric fluids' of the planet. There are interplanetary vessels which are composed entirely of anti-matter. On Earth we only find matter. It is a temporary habitat. A spirit inhabiting a planet has a fluid body surrounding it. so that all men know it and no one nation can gain an advantage over another. but first please pay special attention to certain details which I have told you. cannot live without it. and by changing its polarity so as to oppose that of the Earth we are repelled from the planet at a speed corresponding to the difference in polarity between the saucer and the Earth. No one can escape from it unless he knows how to produce another for his use. not only for men but also for spirits. mesons and antimesons. A spirit who is still bound by matter to any extent. Q: Are spirits also caught within this etheric envelope? A: Yes. I also ask you that if one day you should want to make use of this information for the good of the world. but the force-field created by this means has a terrifying effect on the physical properties of the people travelling in them. The force of repulsion would be unbelievable. If we "manufacture" an . If it attempts to escape from its particular world. A knowledge of magnetic fields is required. as the Brazilians are not aggressive and abhor war. For this reason our space ships are made of matter. In physics we have protons and anti-protons. Many people call this fluid "ether. Do not try to explain the problem to anyone who could make one of these craft into a weapon of mass destruction. and remain ignorant. even spirits are prisoners for as long as they are unable to reject evil. In electricity there is a negative charge. you should first tell your own people. if your people do not attach any importance to the information. its spirit body leaves it and is re-assimilated into the etheric envelope of the planet. Thus. It is a question of words. You should do this without any restrictions. which does not affect the problem." which would be nearer the truth. Now I will satisfy your curiosity. You on Earth do not yet define them correctly. yet it is possible to create anti-matter.Friendship does not impose conditions. you should publish it as you see fit. Around every inhabited globe in space there is an etheric fluid which envelops it and creates suitable conditions for life. and generosity ought to be our universal motto. What is important is to know what it is made of We could well call it" electric fluid. and a positive charge. we make our own etheric fluid inside the saucer.

Let us go back to what I told you about an electron being a wave and not a particle. whether it be made of carbon. nickel.electric fluid which differs from the terrestrial etheric 'envelope. The fluid which binds you to your bodies would leave you. When you entered our craft I called your attention to the different kind of light inside which did not emanate from any particular piece of machinery. you would face certain death. Things are only difficult for those who make them so. and we enjoy complete freedom of movement. we need only to change the ether again to propel ourselves once more into space. When one's eyes are accustomed to seeing the terrestrial ether. a state of near levitation. I can tell you that normally we can reach Mars in a matter of minutes. the artificial ether appears luminous. We can create this ether of another planet even on Earth. You also noticed an agreeable. We can change direction in a way that amazes you. but was caused by the air itself being luminous. but when we leave this atmosphere we put the anti-electron producing machinery into action. any body in space without ether undergoes this process. almost spiritual feeling of lightness. iron. unless there is a breakdown. as well as a feeling of great well-being. In Nature nothing is difficult. This is the mystery of the crystallised bodies which reach the Earth in the form of meteorites. and we will then be attracted by it. and then the trip becomes tedious. By this means life can be maintained inside the craft whatever its construction. A variation in the distance between the plates would bring about a modification in the ether produced. But an electro-magnetic wave can be of positive or negative polarity. That . After passing out of the magnetic field of the Earth. we can move at the speed of light and suffer no ill effects. that an electron is an integration of electro-magnetic waves. calcium. all we need to do is to create an ether similar to that of the planet to which we are travelling. Without this artificial ether no interplanetary voyage is possible. One of your physicists said. and at the same time it provides us with a means of locomotion. Without wishing to terrify you. A: You are wrong there. Within the Earth's atmosphere we always use a vacuum system. correctly. or any other element. On reaching that planet. it is rational enough. It is a complete breaking of the shackles which bind man. and our escape velocity is then phenomenal. the magnetic field of the Earth no longer affects us. but the difficulty would appear to lie in making and changing this "electric fluid" as required. and your bodies would instantly be crystallised. Q:I think I understand the system. At that time you were in an artificial etheric atmosphere and not the ordinary Earth atmosphere. so that we will be repelled from Earth and attracted to the other planet whose ether is contained within the saucer. If you tried to make a journey without this precaution. If we were to send electro-magnetic pulses between magnets. the waves thus produced would create an ether different from that on Earth.

with a suitable catalyst. The laws of inertia provide us with the necessary acceleration to reach the planet that is our objective. releasing a fabulous amount of energy. These three components of radioactivity are related. There are. very little current would be needed. This provides an inexhaustible supply of energy which requires nothing more than a little acid solution and some helium nuclei. which is quite sufficient to meet our immediate requirements. Q: So that explains the whole operation of the saucer? A: Yes. the second are electrons and the third are gamma rays which are similar to ultra rays in their electro-magnetic content. This what you wanted to know in clear and simple terms. as on interplanetary voyages there is no lack of propulsive energy for the craft. We would pass it through a tube of coal gas. and they are collected on plates at the bottom of the apparatus. however. unites with water. that is how it moves. The latter process is the most usual. I cannot tell you more clearly than that. on passing close to helium nuclei. On an interplanetary journey something might go wrong with the apparatus we use for transforming hydrogen into helium and the gamma ray collecting apparatus. the voltage and current are very high indeed. or gamma rays. several navigational instruments. The first are helium nuclei. you would naturally say that a backward thrust is exerted which impels the craft in a forward . but the acid prevents them from joining up with the nuclei. We have. the newly created electrons gyrate around the nuclei. other means. On a small craft used for research. Q: How does the transformation of ultra rays into useable energy take place? A: If you allow radioactivity to pass through a magnetic field you will get alpha. Q: Is very much electrical energy required to bring about this effect? A: Everything is relative. however. as you were able to see. bring about a deformation of space and give birth to electrons until their wave energy is expended. turning it into formaldehyde. Q: Where do you get this energy from to achieve these results? A: There are various means of making it. On our saucer. or by using ultra rays in an acid solution saturated with helium nuclei. Thus when gamma rays pass through an acid solution saturated with helium nuclei. It can be obtained by turning hydrogen into helium at low temperature and bombarding deuterium with heavier mesons. This product is then oxidised giving us coal-gas and water again. Supposing you had to explain to somebody how a jet plane moves. The ultra rays. beta and gamma rays. If this should happen we would turn to solar energy. In this second process solar energy is turned into useable electric current.

In science we have to try to discover things. it is based on principles that you already know of. however. heavy objects fall rapidly. That would be true. The most important scientific discoveries are still to be made in the simplest things. but have not put into practice. the smoke of your cigar is heavier than the surrounding air. If you had discovered this. Yet. The instrument we use for interplanetary communication is also complex. according to the volume of the gas. If I were to begin to talk to you about the equipment we use for detecting the etheric covering of planets. bodies of lesser density always tend to rise. The secret lies in concentrating on the main issue without going into abstract formulae. To explain. I can assure you that many brilliant ideas have been shelved for the sole reason that their originators were not sufficiently versed in mathematics to supply the necessary proofs. due to density: Gravity does not prevent bodies of lesser density from rising. in water-more dense than airthey fall more slowly. A: You supposed something that doesn't exist. Terrestrial science does not accept anything which cannot be proved mathematically. That is to say. even though everything may already appear to have been discovered. We can see that a balloon full of hydrogen gas rises. for . Whereas in air. two factors are at work which can influence this phenomenon. Anything else is academic pedantry. Q: We supposed. What science calls gravity is a question of a difference in the density of bodies. The craft itself would have been sufficient demonstration. density and temperature. How would your formulae help to show that a difference of energy potential could be produced between the atmospheric pressure and a vacuum. it would not have to be proved. that alone would take us some three hours. which is of low density. Gravity is no more than a wrong interpretation of a combination of phenomena. This kills the spirit of research in a world where so much is yet to be discovered. That is to say the difference in density is compensated for by the temperature of the smoke. With a formula you can explain a phenomenon but you cannot discover it. in the same way that water and oil separate. The third factor influencing gravity is the mass of atmosphere and ether surrounding a planet. but inside the plane there are many navigational instruments.direction. this can. it rises as the result of warmth. On Saturn. hitherto. It is wrong to attribute greater or lesser gravity to a planet without knowing the extent of its gaseous mass and the density of its atmosphere. thus producing a thrust. To bring formulae into the calculation merely complicates something that was previously simple. and is then only accessible to the few. that the saucer simply cancelled out the effect of gravity. Therefore. be included in the factor of density. Q: What? Doesn't gravity exist? A: It does not exist. The same thing happens with helium.

Moreover. Lastly. On Mercury. Q: Then all our physics. the body feels a difference in the forces acting upon it and falls to the surface of the Earth. Q: Does this mean that our science is wrong? A: Very wrong. atmospheric pressure is high and gravity is tremendous. Thus it is that we move and have our being in God. On Jupiter. the Earth always shielding it from this pressure on one side. we have the energy that exerts pressure upon the Universe and penetrates our systems of galaxies. it is well known that heat reduces the density of a body. a combination of phenomena and never an individualised force. this attraction is not due to mass. By increasing the frequency of these waves they begin to give off light. which is the result of the vibration of God on the infinite point of the Universe. A falling body has a high initial acceleration and then it collides with the low density of the planet. including relativity. it is quite different. gravity is considered zero. is what maintains the atmosphere of the planets. The warmer water tries to place itself above the cooler. it tends to rise. We note that heat is a factor which affects gravity. You can prove that a magnet loses its properties on being heated. As a body cannot be subject to pressure in all directions. but because it influences magnetism and density. the attraction it exerts on a body is. where the etheric covering extends more than 6oo. with small km. However. which has a very rarefied atmosphere. not because it is itself an agent causing the phenomena of gravity. Q: Why does heat affect gravity? A: Because it reduces the magnetic force of bodies. then. heat has a powerful influence on them. and as the tendency of gases is towards continual expansion. However. of which I spoke to you earlier. however. fall to the ground? . When Newton saw the apple fall. The fourth factor influencing gravity is the vertical component of magnetism. Accordingly. producing currents.example. the whole of the gaseous envelope surrounding a planet would expand into the vacuum were it not maintained by constant pressure. it is caused by the magnetism with which the whole body is endowed. the same as that on any other body. he could not guess that in that moment he witnessed the effect of the divine presence in the Universe. Thus it is that the speed of fall in a vacuum is constant.' As the atmospheric pressure has the fabulous power we use to propel our saucers. owing to the absence of atmosphere. As matter is made up of stationary waves. This can best be seen in the case of boiling water. Gravity is. This tremendous universal pressure..

If the movement of a body. If one multiplies two dimensions one gets the area. marking out a particular space for us. however rational they may be. according to its speed. it remains to be seen whether it is rational. But if the force varies and is consumed. Q: But relativity provided an explanation for the irregularity in the orbit of Mercury. if one multiplies this volume by a fourth dimension. it is an accepted mechanical theory that if two rays move in the same direction at the same speed. one gets the volume. Isaac Newton came up with the physics of relativity. Throughout she behaves as though she were ignorant of Hamilton's calculus and the importance which Earth people attach to formulae. a body does not travel in four. But Nature disregards imaginary enclosures. Others will certainly remain valid. according to the view of Sir James Jeans. The latter is merely a convention based on the movement of the stars. and its days are numbered. rejecting the other . Relativity contains certain erroneous elements which in themselves can be called rational. it may not even make use of any of them. their velocity in relation to one another is nil. he set confines to the Universe. he had now to produce a third idea in order to justify the second. In turn. greater one. or again. as space is a constant. For example. let alone regard it as a dimension in itself.A: Only the fallacious principles fall to the ground. We can advance a thousand rational hypotheses. Einstein invented another. But as one error leads mankind to another greater one. three. Now. he attributed a space and a time appropriate to each moving body. Does it seem strange to you that this should happen? Ptolemy was a genius. In short. It is not necessary to have much imagination to see that this principle is false. The same thing happened with Aristotle. In order to justify this fallacy. This is an example of Nature disregarding these things. Einstein affirmed that whether the rays move in one direction or another. you can see that the frontiers proposed by Einstein were too narrow to contain what is by nature infinite. as well as our carefully thought out ideas. whereas Nature makes use of only one. we need to see whether it corresponds with the method Nature uses. it is difficult to imagine how you could create a time/space constant. appears to disregard. However. It is merely an effect. in order to cope with certain difficulties in his system. two one . or the acceleration of a mass. the velocity between them is always V. but his entire system collapsed like a pack of cards. Space is indivisible and time is non-existent. and our desire that the Universe should conform to our particular points of view. one only gets nonsense. But even supposing it were. if one multiplies area by height. A: It could give an explanation. but if they move in opposite directions. time will vary accordingly. time is then an effect of the force and the latter' is the cause. In space. the velocity of the one in relation to the other is 2V. is due to force. now. but which Nature.

Even within a solenoid you can see that a stream of electrons is deflected by a magnetic field. then. infinite in all directions. which gave rise to this theory. but basically he was wrong. The precession of Mercury's perhelions. there God would be contained. He made a further mistake when he assumed that every moving body created a space of its own and peculiar to itself. To you matter is something. you would have nothing. light is deflected by the magnetic centre and curves round the Sun. is due to the planet's proximity to the Sun. It is neither a curve nor a straight line. Q: Well. say that a body obeys a direction of stress when it moves from point A to point B. nothing. If you conceive a limit. If there were no repulsion between energy and magnetism.dimension. and the Universe is a point to Him. it is the divine energy that brought life to space. which formed part of Einstein's theory? A: The curvature of light is not due to the action of the mass of the Sun. it is simply space. But God is infinite. Time is based on the period a moving body takes to return to its point of departure. I wish to imply that the curvature of space is anti-scientific. for example. this curvature was only seen precisely where the magnetic centre of our system is to be found. has no dimensions whatsoever. your motors would not turn. what would you then have beyond it? Q: I should say. Wheresoever an observer may place himself. We can. Eclipses of the Moon. rotates more rapidly and moves through space with greater speed. But space is nothing transformed by God. because when one leaves the Earth there is a change in what is conventionally known as terrestrial time. . Nevertheless. what about the curvature of light. There is nothing new in this. and is thus the result of a circular movement. If it comprises anything. Primordial space is not relative to any thing and has no form at all. Crommelin and Davidson during the eclipse of the Sun on May 29th. As it moves closer to the Sun. it receives more light. If you had proper apparatus. being infinite. he will always have before him the infinite Universe. Matter also is nothing. as though it were trying to get away from the Sun. and it has no dimensions. when it is close to Earth. Only a materialistic science could limit creation. at the most. let us say Mars. 1919. Therefore. Q: Then no limit can be conceived to matter? A: If in space there should be a point that could serve as a limit to creation. A: Truly. would provide the best opportunity for such observation. you would see that light also curves on the side opposite the centre. but is caused by the magnetic centre of the system situated near the Sun. If light were to be deflected when passing close to a mass. Up to a point Einstein was right in saying that a moving body in space has its own time. this phenomenon could be clearly observed in the vicinity of planets.because space. obseryed by Eddington.

if there were a law of gravitation. What pain can anyone feel by putting error aside and seeing the truth. one of the bad aspects of man is his obstinacy. the less it weighs. should weigh more. always in the same month. and that is exactly what earthly science does not admit. then. Q: It is hard for us to learn that our most cherished concepts are completely at variance with reality. when science has to explain electronic theory. first decide whether the wave theory or the emission theory is true. If it is true that the density of bodies affects gravity. Now. Verify the true speed of light. also. Believe me. of altitude the column falls about 1 mm. in order to explain the same thing. but there is a case which should be considered. Thus. the wave theory is put aside. the higher one goes. If the weight of the atmosphere. the less is the weight. They are. Every year Earth collides with millions of meteorites. However. those which succeed in penetrating the mass of ether fall to Earth and the others remain in the same place. Before abandoning relativity. to abandon the experiments of Hertz and Fresnel. Q: But it is difficult for us to abandon the science of relativity. the contrary is the case. l'am telling you the truth.but make a stream of cathode rays pass through it and it will disappear from your view. Only one thing is real. for each 10 m. However. The lower the atmospheric pressure. for example. If gravity were a force with its own attributes and it was that which supported bodies in space. we must consider the pressure which bodies undergo as a function of their density. who settled upon the wave theory of light. it would be rather difficult for earthly science to explain why meteors are maintained in their orbits. For terrestrial gravity to exist. A: It will be difficult for science. at sea level. is equivalent to a column of mercury of 76 cm. but neither of these exist. However. This means that they are located in one place. If I had erred for an eternity. or already have been attracted by the Sun. in balance between the magnetic attraction of the centre of the system and the repulsive force of the Sun. and has recourse to Planck's theory. Q: I have noted the factors which you say affect gravity. Determine the action and reaction of the planetary system. A: But I told you also that gravity is affected by the mass of ether surrounding the planet. All that appears is an illusion of our senses. on the top of a mountain the air is more rarefied so that iron. that is Spirit. there would have to be solar attraction. when atomic theory is in question. being in a more attenuated medium. A: Indeed. they would either all come towards Earth. it turns things upside down and says that the electron is a particle. You will only see space. . Never use two interpretations in one science. I would welcome the day when someone would enlighten me.

we would be limited to the insignificant speed of 1. If a ship had been passing at that moment. when Newton supposed a gravitational force to exist. he had to imagine the existence of an ether. Even sixteen horses could not succeed in pulling them apart. Another time he exhausted the air from a copper cauldron but the terrific exterior pressure crumpled it as though it were a piece of paper. A short while ago. it is easy to see that if a vacuum exists between the celestial bodies. relativity denies the ether and yet approves of gravity. This being the case. independently of their mass. As the atmospheric pressure is exerted on the whole of the surface area of the sea. Several tons of water were seen to rise to a great height and then fall back again. it is laughable to imagine a craft coming from another planet with such low velocity and with only one directional movement. For the sake of argument. as you suppose. Besides. a water sprout was observed at Santos in Brazil. bodies in a vacuum would never have the same speed of fall. we would only move in one direction. we do not cancel out gravity at all. It was then that Otto Guericke carried out his famous experiment with two hemispheres. it ceases to be true that matter attracts matter in direct proportion to their respective mass. at least not if this matter is in a vacuum. solar gravitation-if it exists-should attract all bodies equally.660 km. it would have been sucked several hundred feet into the air. This phenomenon is caused by a whirly wind which spins the air molecules at great speed. And it is strange that. Such a saucer would be much inferior to terrestrial aircraft and it would be a case of our coming to learn from you something about manoeuvrability and how to fly faster. it admits what the discoverer of gravity himself could not admit. a tremendous volume of water rises up into the low-pressure area. This was merely the effect of an area of low pressure. If this premise is demolished. per hour. Therefore your conception of the cosmos is wrong. Besides. later. if our craft flew on the basis of cancelling out gravity. We would always fly against the Earth's rotation. thus creating a semi-vacuum at the centre by virtue of the centrifugal force. Author's Note The extraordinary power of atmospheric pressure was discovered in 1654.If my reasoning were incorrect. and it would be impossible to fly with it. not an absolute vacuum. All we do is to utilise the forces of Nature. Now. But all terrestrial astronomy is based on the mass of bodies and their distance from one another. He could not conceive of this force without there being a vehicle for it. But if all bodies in a vacuum fall with equal velocity. let us suppose that gravity exists. and the bathers on the beach were able to witness this spectacle. . or anywhere near the poles.

However. cm.. A man can slide a weight of several hundred kilograms over a smooth surface.2: there is a pressure of almost 500 kg. For reasons of security we are not permitted to give all the information that was imparted by the captain of the flying saucer. for not only do these craft have an enormous carrying capacity. is the pressure at sea level only. he would get nowhere because there is also another important factor involved. If these currents did not exist. the height of the column of mercury decreases by i mm. per cm... unaided.2 should be 136 gr. So that in whatever part of the atmosphere a saucer is. atmospheric pressure should cease to exist at a height of 76 km.Toricelli. If anybody were to use the system as here described.. we would be crushed by the terrific atmospheric pressure. There is no great difficulty involved in the production of an exterior vacuum. a saucer 20 m. its speed will depend on the degree of vacuum it happens to be wing. There is thus nothing on Earth to equal this force. The known effects produced by cathode rays are as follows: . and even in water our large ships only displace a few thousand tons. the notable Italian physicist.p. no one has ever been able to lift a weight of 500 kg. which gives 033 kg. Given that 1 cu. the lift obtained from the atmospheric pressure would reach the incredible total of 29 million kg. especially when we remember that these layers move at a speed of some 1400 m. This. or faster than a jet plane. found that atmospheric pressure acting on the surface of the Earth was equal to 76 cm. On the other band. physics will need to revise its calculations as air currents have been observed at about this height. apart from the high voltage and current and the anti-cathode plates which we mentioned. he concluded that the atmospheric pressure per cm. x 76 cm. To give you some idea of the power of atmospheric pressure at 1. would make our large cargo ships look insignificant. producing an absolute vacuum on its upper surface. However. however. but they can also move at the speed of lightning without needing landing fields. diameter can develop a lift of more than 3 million kg. Such a fantastic power.h. of water weighs 1 gr. We would not even have any further use for cranes. and that mercury is 136 times heavier than water. now acting on the page of this book. If its diameter were increased to 60 in. of mercury in his tube. In theory. If such a craft were built on Earth it would completely revolutionise our transport system. enough to lift a skyscraper into the air. above sea level. Air currents parallel to the Earth's surface give the upper layers of the atmosphere a considerable degree of support. For every 10 m. there is a considerable atmospheric pressure available for propulsion. per cm.033 kg. and can move several thousand kilograms floating in water.

After he had gone through this area. (5) They decompose the elements that make up the atmosphere. It is apposite to mention certain other details of the functioning of the saucer. This would smash it to pieces. Now that we know the principle by which saucers move. The nitrogen. also carried out experiments with considerable success. After their passage. he ran up against the wall of atmospheric pressure on the opposite side. The luminous wake which saucers leave is a result of the ionisation by cathode rays. (2) They are deflected by a magnetic field. (4) They penetrate matter enabling one to "see" through it. however quickly it moves. falls from the atmosphere and settles on the ground. by the action of currents. which would appear to the observer like a vapour trail. like Crookes. based on the cathode ray method of propulsion. It always moves through a tunnel of low pressure. aircraft would be the area of low the direction of pressure on to This is what happened to Captain Mantell. from which the name "Geissler tubes" is derived. in the middle of the nineteenth century. we can explain the various phenomena connected with their sightings. and was shattered to pieces. The flakes that have been seen to fall when flying saucers pass over are a precipitate of nitrogen. which resulted in considerable progress in the field of physics. and could only have been an accident. He probably died when passing through the vacuum created by the saucer and may never have been aware of the disintegration of the plane. made the first unsuccessful attempts to pass electricity through rarefied gases. By varying the vacuum the colour is also changed. Other scientists of world fame. After him. and then suddenly change the vacuum which would release the full atmospheric the aircraft. Gassiot. This was certainly not done intentionally by the people in the saucer. There is no friction between the saucer and the atmosphere. The light that has been seen round them at night depends on the degree of vacuum. All a saucer would have to do to destroy one of our to get close enough for the aircraft to come within pressure round the saucer. (3) They are attracted by the positive plate of a condenser.(1) They produce fluorescence in bodies with which they come into contact. (6) They discharge bodies carrying an electric charge. there must be an intense molecular disturbance of the air. . When he was pursuing the saucer he got into the low-pressure area that was maintaining the saucer in the air. Plucker invented the tube which was later used by Geissler for his experiments.

The scientists asked themselves what effect cathode rays had on the ordinary atmosphere.000 volts was used. they often bring about devastating cyclones. It is now well known from meteorology that heavy ions cause low pressure. made an aluminium "window" on the opposite side to the cathode which projected the rays outside the tube where they could be studied with ease. The most important thing as far as we are concerned. . he could not completely comprehend the nature of the phenomena as he did not know that they were the result of a disturbance in the atmosphere and ether. He proved that these "Lenard rays" could be propagated in the atmosphere as easily as in the rarefied air of the tube. etc. causing atmospheric phenomena of a similar nature. Later it was observed that by using 250. such as the appearance of dark bands which are known as Faraday bands. yellow. liberating hydrogen. of mercury. It is known that the emission of a single particle of medium velocity can produce in the first centimetre of its trajectory through the atmosphere as many as 24. but the speed of the electron was not noted. It is also well known that the higher the voltage used. red.000 miles per second. Various effects are brought about by changing the gas pressure inside the tube. There was. is to know whether or not jonisation causes a drop in atmospheric pressure. however. Even using a low voltage the electrons moved through space at a speed of between 25.000 and 50. He proved that the passage of electrons through the dense air of the atmosphere appeared to open up a tunnel giving rise to strong ionisation of the particles with considerable air turbulence and luminous effects which varied according to the voltage used. changes in the colour of the light to green. The number gradually increases as the particle proceeds along its trajectory. working on Hertz' previous experiments. Nobel prize winner in physics in 1905. the greater is the number of ions produced. If the tube contains air and the anode and cathode ends of it are put into contact with the positive and negative poles of a high tension electric current. However. In one experiment 900. sometimes as many as 2 million ions appearing in the first centimetre of the electron's trajectory. one great difficulty which dogged the steps of science: cathode rays could not leave the tube of rarefied air since they were incapable of passing through any substance. Similar experiments with spheres painted black produced the same result. the disintegration of gas molecules.000 miles per second. the whole tube lights up with a violet light.400 ions. with the exception of a space at the cathode end where the light is blue and separated from the remaining violet light by a dark band. Crookes succeeded in proving the mechanical action of cathode rays by bombarding rotary blades with them and setting them in motion. It was then that Lenard.In a Geissler tube the atmospheric pressure is reduced to between 1 and 3 mm.000 volts 'the elctrons moved at 150.

per electron volt in dense atmosphere. however. which they subsequently join up with. which we have now decided to include in this book to add to its authenticity. at which point the electrons pass into the vacuum. but we would prefer not to talk about this here. Any short circuit would be equally disastrous. and set free the nuclei. It may well be that these rays break the atmosphere down completely. but it involves the whole question of the automatic production of propulsive power for the saucer itself. Madame Curie was able to calculate the speed of ions as 1. however. not strictly due to the intrinsic speed of the ion. This is due to the limited amount of electrolyte within the confines of the tube. If the end . but to the atmosphere's ability to absorb ionised particles. While negative ions are absorbed by the atmosphere. impelled by the atmospheric pressure of 1. per electron volt when the ionic movement took place in pure hydrogen. per cm2. The reader may ask how the saucer can stop in space. One is by a magnetic effect which deflects electrons. preventing the atmosphere from exerting pressure on the craft. however. into which the saucer moves.033 kg. ensuring constant uninterrupted mobility. thus producing the amount of hydrogen that has been observed. generating sufficient heat to vaporise the saucer and produce a tremendous explosion. the positive ones move towards the negatively charged surface of the saucer. In the case of the flying saucer the electrolyte is made up of the whole atmospheric envelope of the Earth which never reaches saturation point.Subsequent experiments showed that the electrons emanating from cathode ray tubes could break down the atmosphere and set free hydrogen which then also became ionised. and 6. The question is a pertinent one because if an inexperienced saucer pilot were to cut off the current. The chief means. There are. We saw that it was not the movement of ions themselves that produced the vacuum. is to create a vacuum on the other side of the saucer as well. In the previous chapter we mentioned various systems of producing energy but we refrained from mentioning the principal one. but the atmosphere's ability to absorb them. which corresponds to the electric potential of the atmosphere. The ionised "bubble" surrounding the saucer is attracted and absorbed by the surrounding atmosphere with tremendous force and in its place only a vacuum is left. This is not a perpetual motion system which some people might suppose. In an ordinary cathode ray tube the electric current reaches a saturation point which shows that all the atmospheric particles contained within the tube have been ionised. Energy for the saucer can be extracted from the atmosphere itself. the atmosphere would immediately fill the vacuum.7 cm. There is another way this is done which we would like to outline to the reader. various means by which a saucer can be brought to a standstill. The vacuum creating effect is. This shows that a high voltage would result in a higher electron speed and that in the upper atmosphere the speed would be greater.3 cm.

working were to pass over a tree. The energy used is only the minimal amount required to bring two masses of uranium dose enough to cause their explosion. More energy is obtained from the effect of atmospheric pressure on the craft than is required to create the vacuum. metre falling produced would be sufficient If a saucer with its turbine movement of the air currents in diameter. If a current is passed through it. Any violent collisions between the particles that might occur would take place away from the surface of the saucer. Many people who have seen saucers have observed that most of them. giving it complete structural protection. If some 3oo. In a "tunnel" of air 4 metre blades would be equal to 130 water of i sq. the motor begins to turn under the action of the current. anything from 6o to 6oo volts are developed for every metre that the wire is raised above ground level. that is.oOo kg. The air pressing against one side of the saucer rushes through the vent into the area of the vacuum and creates a strong current that actuates the blades of the turbine. This gives some idea of the magnitude of this potential. Thus there is always a small layer of atmosphere close to the saucer. but not all. diameter. have a hollow tube running through their centre. away.of an insulated wire is heated. The motor will not work without an electromagnet to create the magnetic field. which are preserved for their natural beauty. the emission of Lenard rays is decreased and this atmospheric layer gradually increases until it joins up with the adjacent atmosphere. . pressure on the turbine tons. of pressure is sufficient to move a saucer of zo m. These illustrations help us to understand how saucers obtain their energy automatically without confusing this process with perpetual motion. The energy thus obtained would be sufficient to keep a dozen factories going. The presence of one produces an excitation in the other and immediately a chain reaction is set off. the would strip off its branches. Inside this there is an air turbine. When the saucer wants to stop. This is the way in which the inhabitants of other planets generate the electrical energy they require without using waterfalls. and the available pressure exceeds 3 million kg. the pressure of a jet of from 130 m. The current supplied to the electromagnet is not proportional to the effect obtained by the rotation of the motor. The current of air thus to suck a man into it from 100 yd. Another illustration we can give is the fission of uranium.. An electric motor is an example of this type of operation. The electromagnet in this illustration performs the same function as the ionised particles which merely supply the atmosphere with the means by which absorption takes place. but the electromagnet is made of soft iron and has no latent magnetism. there is a considerable margin of surplus energy. The air that goes in one side rushes into the vacuum and is there immediately ionised and absorbed by the atmosphere.

whose existence everyone is aware of.At first sight it might seem absurd to make a tunnel to utilise atmospheric pressure. The author of this book does not claim any exclusivity with regard to this knowledge. C. having looked into the idea. the result of observation in low which more advanced beings than ourselves have used with complete success. but something quite practicable. atomic power terrorised multitudes and today keeps the world in a state of panic. decreed that the machine would not move. Cars would lose their raison d'etre and there would be no further need for roads or railways. When it came to the question of exploiting the expansive forces of gases. but considered it impossible to use as the pressure was only exerted in one direction. Eleven years later. It is only that they will always refuse to reveal what they know. even the most renowned scientists ridiculed the idea of using this uncontrollable force. The same thing happened with steam. someone must have realised that a paddle-wheel could be used to transform this power. governments. One day. saying that any attempt to exploit the energy contained in the nucleus would be doomed to failure because the energy derived from its disintegration would be less than that required to bring the disintegration about. When mixing chlorine with water a small ray of light is sufficient to detonate the mixture and convert it into energy. as it is certain that other men on Earth also possess it. The small amount of energy contained in a fuse cup or detonator is sufficient to send a projectile several miles. nor for large port installations or ships. frontiers. The whole world. or because they have been sworn to secrecy by certain philosophical orders. Furnas wrote about atomic energy. orthodox science. The atmospheric ionisation on one side gives rise to a fantastic pressure on the other. It often happens that the effect is many times greater than the cause. great liners now proudly plough the seven seas. . What we are stating is not a pipe dream. the pattern of life of nations. for fear of vested interests. yet what is a chimney but a vertical tunnel which makes use of a difference in atmospheric pressure? It may well be that many people before us have looked at the power in waterfalls with wonder. It is the detonator that unleashes a cyclone behind the saucer. however. In spite of this edict. In 1934 the erudite American C. until an unqualified mechanic constructed the first motor utilising this difference of energy potential by the use of pistons. in fact everything could be transformed by the exploitation of this atmospheric energy. commercial interests. The same thing happens with the inexhaustible energy available to a saucer.

All that has been achieved to date has been used to further his murderous. Before we were created. leading him by various isms to a criminal and unbrotherly clash of interests. unless we kill ourselves off in a hydrogen war before that happens. but it could also lead to man's complete liberation and the release from the "patriotic" chains that bind him. The head of a family could put his house on wings and move about in space visiting any part of the world he wished. He gave wings to vipers. we live on the sweat of the poor in a disgraceful and unjust society. rivers and waterfalls will dry up.

Governments would not be in a position to impose crushing taxes. He prepared our table with our "daily bread.The ownership of land would cease to exist. whose very existence we had until recently disbelieved. The flying saucer could be used to destroy humanity. with the exalted title of homo sapiens. Man's antecedents prove his intentions." In our intellectual blindness we cannot discern the laden table and. The malevolence of humanity is enough to discourage anyone and turn to stone the most friendly of hearts. pushes into our mouth things which we have only to stretch forth our hands to get. famished. one of those beings without parallel. but atmospheric pressure will always be there. strictly speaking.

one day. not only to visit us earthworms of the lowlands. but to give us wings powerful enough to make the return journey to the Andes. it will be possible. There is now much talk on Earth of journeys through space and of conquering other worlds and their inhabitants but before running the tremendous risks involved. one needs to know all the laws which govern the planetary system and the peculiarities of each one of the planets. How do you think that man. On that day the condor will come down from the Andes. higher beings more advanced than ourselves see in man a sufficient greatness of soul to reach up to them. Marconi would certainly have committed suicide had he foreseen that radio could be used for the remote control of missiles which in future war could destroy life on Earth. can leave the Earth? This would be tantamount to a primitive savage building an aeroplane and flying. and the Stars and Stripes hoisted . It is not necessary to state how a flying saucer can leave the Earth. If one were ignorant of these laws one would be destroyed before leaving the rarefied matter that surrounds the Earth. If. Curie and his wife would never have revealed radioactivity to the world had they been able to foresee the fate of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A certain American official even went so far as to state that other planets would have to be conquered. but it is shut to those who are ignorant of the fundamental laws that govern it. It is not up to the humble author of this book to tell the world the why and wherefore of things. Science will not be able.If Pasteur had dreamed that his discovery would one day give rise to bacteriological warfare. as it is. at present. Knowledge is the key that opens it. in fact. if Galvani could have foreseen the electric chair he would have preferred not to have exposed himself to ridicule by asserting that frogs' legs could be made to twitch. they will come to meet us and aid us in the great journey through space. and if we are to have the pleasure of being conquered we should hate to see you come to grief without having got beyond the gaseous envelope of your own planet! There is no visible doorway into space. May this day not be far distant! ASTRO-NAVIGATION Q: Shall we one day be able to journey through space and visit other planets? A: Yes. Others who do not belong to the Earth will discharge this duty. who knows nothing of the forces which move and maintain the planets in space. But in view of the state of Earthly knowledge. to achieve the conquest of space when it knows nothing about what happens more than 300 miles up. in one fell swoop. this is as yet an impossible dream. he would rather have taken his knowledge to the grave.

if only because fuel is unnecessary. In reality the opposite is the case. When one whirls a stone on the end of a string. they impute miraculous qualities to centrifugal force. Earth's scientists have got their terminology mixed. so they based all their calculations on this. but they do not see that they have overlooked a third force which gives a planet movement. Further. He presumably thought this was the best way of defending Democracy and our Christian values. which it does not. We put diffently. as it was obvious to them that a body could not maintain itself in an orbit when acted upon by a single force. all the it straight at a ." which means to say that points in a body tend to fly away from the centre. If we have been able to understand them. the Sun exerts a repulsive force on the Earth. If y = F or f= y x M. believing that it was the second force that held the planets in their orbits. If one were to use fuel. They need only to understand cosmic laws and everything will be made easy. Even if centrifugal force did give the necessary balance to a planet. If the forces which operate in the planetary system were indeed those which terrestrial science claims them to be.on them. Even at this point science has gone wrong. then the element of propulsion F is necessary to make the Earth move. namely the force that impels a planet in a certain direction. Your term is "centrifugal force. especially as there is a loss of energy as the result of the movement of the body against the action of gravity. the string represents the force of attraction and centrifugal force plays the part of repulsion. there is one glaring omission in this theory. but the individual represents the third force which gives direction to the stone. The difficulty facing the people of Earth is an illusory one. It appeared to them that the only thing that could conceivably maintain the Earth in orbit and account for its revolution was solar attraction. This method is obviously impractical. a tremendous amount of it would be required in view of the time it would take for a craft of this type to reach another planet. In our view all the points M' tend to follow a line in space in the direction of the impelling force and tangent to the equatorial plane of the body. Then there is the question of the return journey. since it is this that imparts an acceleration to the mass M. Nothing could be farther from the truth. but it is absurd to state that this acceleration could be initiated without a force and then maintained without one. It is logical that a body to which acceleration has been imparted should begin to move. the saucer would be attracted by the Sun or by the planets and in this case the law of inertia that maintains acceleration imparted to a body would not be valid. they also see that centrifugal force counterbalances this attraction. To achieve this using fuel propellants is impractical for various reasons. you also will be able to. They see that a planet is attracted.

the planets beyond Jupiter which are smaller than it. so as not to differ from your estimate which is based on the force of attraction of the Sun against centrifugal force. You might raise the objection that Jupiter. or Jupiter's is too low. and it should be drawn into the Sun. Note that I give Jupiter's mass as 317 times that of the Earth. or again. Without it there would be no interplanetary travel. _____________________________________________________________________ ___________________ Let us look at the following: Velocity in Distance from Orbit the Sun Mass Earth 66. should be subject to a far greater attraction than the Earth.h. 93. either the orbital velocity of the Earth is too great for its mass. .000 miles 317 _____________________________________________________________________ ____________________ Jupiter.000 m. the first due to its orbital velocity.000.h. This figure. then the whole of physics. as a theory is only valid when it answers all the relevant problems involved. thermodynamics included.500 m. 489.000. Now let us analyse the consequences of the terrestrial system based on solar attraction and repulsion through centrifugal force: if all the points of a body tried to fly away from the centre. Against this we have the case of Mars which is smaller than the Earth. revolves in an outer orbit according to the theory that spheres of greater mass are said to be more subject to the action of centrifugal force. Work cannot be performed by a body without a source of power. and it should be flung out of its orbit. with a mass 317 times greater than that of the Earth. would be wrong. with its large mass.p. Moreover their velocity in orbit is very low. and yet revolve at a tremendous distance from the Sun. is incorrect.000 miles 1 Jupiter 29. This being the case. yet the velocity in orbit is not high enough to counterbalance this and maintain it in orbit. yet is farther from the Sun. and the second due to its axial rotation. This planet has a large mass and a low velocity. We should also bear in mind that this loss of energy would be a double one as the Earth develops two kinds of centrifugal force. So that does not make sense either. however.It is this interpretation of centrifugal force which gives direction to the saucer when we leave the Earth or any other planet. the force of solar attraction resisted by the centrifugal force would give rise to a loss of energy and the planet would become stationary. If Earth itself were the source of the power.p. This alone is sufficient to show the incorrectness of terrestrial astronomy.

.which in this case is what the elephants' feet stand on-then it is because the problem was based on false premises. Before showing you the solution I would like to point out the difficulties in the theory that Earth's people have elaborated. how can your theory be applied to satellites? For example. wondering what supplies the force which enables the satellite to disobey the gravitational force of the planet and complete three revolutions instead of one. Scientists forgot. We are thus back to where we started. All the mechanical phenomena of the Universe are explainable. its orbit should be perfectly circular and there being a balance of these two forces. The difficulties lie in the capacity of beings to analyse the facts. unless there was some inconsistency in the laws of gravitation. The distance between the planet and the satellite can vary by as much as 26. when dealing with the movement of planets. If the Moon were maintained by the action of gravity against centrifugal force. the radius of its orbit being represented by the string. how can you reconcile these factors with the problem of the Moon's movements? A: By the theory of centrifugal force which is what I have not yet explained. The Moon does not describe a truly circular orbit round the Earth. Nobody can equate problems without weighing all the factors which lead to their solution. and they often elaborate complicated systems which are often quite ridiculous. There was one which lasted for some time which maintained that the Earth was held in space by elephants. the balance is upset and the satellite should be drawn towards the Earth. This does not take into consideration the fact that when it moves into close orbit. A body which is balanced between two opposing forces (attraction and repulsion) has no weight and moves like a stone whirled round on the end of a string.The phenomena of Nature are simple and can easily be explained. If no explanation was given as to the source of power necessary to sustain the movement. the Moon would be unable to alter its distance from the Earth.000 miles. The first satellite of Mars represents a curious phenomenon which completely negates your conception of the truth. If there is any logic in your theory that planets can be maintained between the attraction of the magnetic centre of our system and the repulsion by the light of the Sun. its satellite completes three revolutions round the planet. Q: There is one great difficulty you appear to forget. while Mars completes its axial rotation in 24 hours 37 minutes. If anyone had had the sense to ask what the elephants were standing on. that energy must have been used up as a result of solar attraction working against the two centrifugal forces mentioned. Sometimes it moves closer and other times it moves away. which would be inadmissible. taking 7 hours 39 minutes per revolution. In the theory which I contend is the correct one. this theory might have had a shorter life. this force is derived from difference of energy potential which sunlight sets up by illuminating one face of the planet while leaving the other m darkness.

When the reflection of sunlight between the two bodies is greatest. it is because it lies within the periphery of the etheric envelope which surrounds the Earth. which utterly defy the laws of gravitation as you suppose them to be. HOW THE MOON IS MAINTAINED IN ORBIT.Even more curious is the behaviour of the ninth. whereas the above three satellites move in the opposite direction. . I will now show you why the Moon is held in space without colliding with the planet. when. the two bodies themselves are repelled by solar light. While there is attraction between their magnetic fields. however. Since the amount of reflected light varies. the Moon is waning the reflection of light is less. FIG. Q: How? A: Sunlight is reflected from the Moon to Earth and from the Earth to the Moon. While the poles of the Moon are attracted by the Earth's poles the reflected light of the Sun coming from the Moon causes the two bodies to repel one another. which proportionally decreases the force of repulsion and the magnetic attraction increases so that the satellite moves closer to the Earth. 6. the poles of the Earth acting on the poles of the Moon and vice versa. The combined reflective action of the two bodies supplies the necessary repulsive force to overcome the magnetic attraction. tenth and eleventh satellites of Jupiter. the pressure increases and the Moon moves away from the Earth. and this repulsion balances with the magnetic attraction between them. The result is that the satellite maintains itself in orbit. Jupiter and its satellites move anti-clockwise. There is a magnetic attraction between the two bodies.

this can be proved by observation. The . because if. but tides do not occur directly under the Moon. The maximum variation is about 26. This is the explanation of the retardation of tides caused by the Moon25 (see Fig. What happens is the exact opposite. with an elevation on either side of it-these elevations are not waves. Q: But the pressure of light that is reflected between two bodies must be very small. At the Equator they reach a height of about 30 in. Tides can be regarded as a depression in the surface of the waters. Being compressed at one point. but actual increases in the mass of water. in reality. The time is. they could not conceivably have elliptical orbits. at full Moon and about 20 inches. but as the Moon is at that moment still being repelled by the full pressure of the sunlight from behind. at other phases of the Moon. It is wrong to suppose that tides are caused by the attraction of the the Moan's distance from the Earth varies too. The difference in the eccentricity of the orbits of the various planets is due to the volume and density of each of them. rise up in two other places. You can also prove for yourself that this attraction is minimal in view of the fact that the Moon moves around the Earth in little less than thirty days. and the proper balance is restored as soon as the reflection returns after the eclipse. 7). too short to seriously affect the orbit. So that it is more rational to calculate the density of celestial bodies by observing their diameter and their distance at aphelion and perihelion. on being compressed at one point. If the tides were caused by attraction. because he could find no explanation for the tides. 6). the Sun did attract them. According to current theory this daily retardation is caused by the angle of the Sun to the Earth at the time. this liquid is raised up at another. A: It is no less than the magnetic attraction. and take place 50 minutes later each day. there would be a single wave travelling directly under the Moon. the repulsive force is thereby lessened. and this is the cause of the tides. This variation causes the Moon to describe a perfect ellipse around the Earth (see miles. Sunlight reflected from the Moon exerts a pressure on the liquid mass of the ocean. When there is an eclipse and less moonlight reaches the Earth. If the attraction were strong the satellite should revolve round the Earth at the same speed and it should not advance or lag by more than so minutes a day. in which case the planet moves away from it. and other times the magnetic centre is closer to the planet and the planet moves towards it. But the movement of the Sun around the magnetic centre of the system makes its repulsive force stronger at times. The waters of the Earth. Astronomers would run up against the same difficulty in explaining the orbits of the planets as they did when explaining the lunar orbit. There are two tides a day. however. it falls rapidly through space towards the Earth. Aristotle committed suicide by throwing himself off a cliff.

very often they reach as much as 1250 miles per hour. that gradually decreases until it reaches the surface of the planet where it is almost non-existent. how should we go about it if we were to attempt to do so? A: I explained to you how the atmosphere can be ionised by cathode rays. where the pressure is greatest. This pressure of light is transmitted through the atmosphere until it reaches the oceans. The ionised "bubble" is absorbed by the atmosphere creating a vacuum in its rear into which the saucer is drawn. Most wind currents start near the Equator. This same compressive force of the Son's light causes winds. This being the case there can be no attraction between the masses but there is a magnetic attraction.h. It is merely subject to the effect. and the latter by temperature differences in the upper layers. thus rising upwards. Q: Knowing all these things. We should not confuse those air currents that run parallel to the Earth's surface with the vertical ones. at a distance.040 m. The speed of the Earth's rotation produces an angular velocity on the Moon of almost one twenty-eighth. in both Earth's the great force that the waves from the Sun exert on this maintaining it in orbit. and their intensity depends on the amount of pressure acting on them at the time. there is a very great pressure on the upper layers of the atmosphere. Some of planet. and the direct light from the Sun a compression at another. It is this which gives rise to cyclones.p. It is as though only the axis of the Earth exerted an attraction. of the Earth's movement.. then the full pressure of the light of the Sun is transmitted to the Earth. Pressing on the upper etheric layers. The difference of pressure on various parts of the atmosphere gives rise to air currents. The pressure of light is not just the insignificant weight that is felt at the surface of the Earth. Now. This means to say that if we continued to rise in relation to a point on the Earth's surface we should be increasing . but gradually tails off as the velocity decreases through resistance of the atmosphere until it eventually comes to rest. This movable layer is subjected to the greatest pressure. the Earth develops a surface speed of 1. how do you set about travelling though space. is absorbed in producing high winds the upper layers of the atmosphere and those close to the surface. whose power of penetration is very high at the beginning of its trajectory. but no one feels it move. a great deal depends on the speed these upper sir currents are able to maintain. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------Q: Does this mean that the satellite has no movement of its own? A: That is correct. Thus it is that the tides are highest at the full Moon. The former are caused by the pressure of the Sun's light. or better still. the force is then transmitted to the atmosphere proper. It behaves like a bullet. these two pressures then being conjoined. which it translates into a movement parallel with the Earth's surface. If the speed of these upper layers drops. However.reflected light from the Moon causes a compression at one point.

reach a speed of 66. of which 66. follow a rectilinear course because we have means of offsetting these differences. On reaching a height of 250. Sometimes we use even higher speeds which to you would seem incredible. which is equal to the speed of revolution of the planet in space. be different if we were using the "electric fluid" of the planet as our means of propulsion. by following a straight line. With a high escape velocity we only require fuel or 'other sources of energy in small quantities for use within the saucer. Once in a while they are used to deflect meteorites that we meet with en route. would reach the planet we wanted to get to. and if we switch off the field.000 m. however. In order to explain one principle to you. he would see us moving at a terrific angular velocity. in which we have no sensation of m. but would have no sensation of acceleration. I said "a straight line" in order to simplify the reasoning. with which the Earth provides us gratis. Due to the tendency of moving bodies to move in a straight line. but there would be certain dangers due to loss of energy though solar repulsion.h. we would leave the etheric envelope at a point at which the saucer. in which case we would suffer a loss of kinetic energy.. We can completely disconnect the Crookes and Geissler tubes which bring about the atmospheric disturbance because we have no need for them. If we create a magnetic field with the powerful solenoids at our disposal. in fact.p. Nature has resources which the people of Earth have not dreamed of. but we have. Therefore a higher speed is required. A pilot who is used to making these flights could do so using this low speed. as the laws of inertia are valid to some extent. it would be possible for people to attempt a journey through space and reach other planets. . but it would take him a long time. without any other effort than that of going upwards. If we were to move in the same direction we should be impelled by it.p. Having reached this speed we would try to escape from the etheric coveting. We would. to take into consideration the deflective action the forces of attraction and repulsion would have on us.p. Using a speed of 66..000 m. That is why it is necessary to understand fully the laws of Nature. of course. I have had to omit another. In practice the minimum escape velocity we use is 125. we should be attracted. We neither see nor feel the speed we have reached as we have no point of reference. Also for the sake of simplicity I said that we leave the Earth at a speed of 66. The procedure would. falling into the vacuum. and if we were to move in an opposite direction we should be repelled by it.000 are supplied by the Earth and the difference by the speed developed by the saucer within the atmosphere. It should be noted that we move at right angles to the direction of solar repulsion.h.p. otherwise we would not reach any planet at all.h.our speed. we should be repelled.000 m.000 miles from the Earth's surface we should. but if there were a stationary observer outside the etheric envelope.h.

we generally use Mars or Venus as staging posts.We generally connect them up when wandering meteorites appear on the screens of our detecting apparatus. You should aim by preference for Ganymede. The small etheric envelope makes contact very dangerous. depends on the speed at which they reach the planet. naturally. with the other in darkness. Mars at 54.p. In order to prevent accidents the Geissler tubes should be switched on at the moment of contact in order to avoid as much friction as possible. If they reach the etheric envelope against the direction of the planet's rotation. that is to say 54. the journey could be continued to Jupiter.000S m. you should. of increasing or diminishing its speed. if you were to undertake a voyage to Jupiter.h. This.. following the direction of its movement. and it is these same factors which cause the Earth to rotate. If we were to approach it counter to its rotation.h.000 m. We must always approach the planet in the direction of its rotation. even if this took place in the direction of its movement. it would be dangerous to make contact with the etheric covering of a planet with a low speed of rotation. depending on the positions of the planets at the time. Then the contact between them does not give rise to any friction. unless the craft has its own means of deceleration in space. and attain a speed identical to this planet's rotation. it is as though they were both stationary. which has a large etheric envelope and . and Jupiter at 29. At a certain height above the Earth's atmosphere a body begins to rotate violently.p.O0O m. but the trip would take a long time.h. This fact has been observed by you countless times. and this maintains our balance.p. In your case. With the velocity supplied by Mars. they are broken to pieces. but on the satellites. tends to rotate on itself on an imaginary axis. If we were travelling at 175. In order to correct this we heat up that part of the craft which is away from the Sun. This is a convenient place to explain to you the phenomenon of meteorites which reach the planets. Under low atmospheric pressure a body illuminated on one face. our craft would be broken to pieces. Two bodies travelling in the same direction have no relative velocity. This is a grave danger for the inexperienced for the same thing happens in space.p. between your speed and that of the ether of the planet will not produce too great a friction. A difference of 25000 m. The solution would be to use Mars as a staging post. If we go from Earth to Jupiter.000 m.p. No landing should be made on Jupiter itself. but if they come into it following the direction of rotation they sometimes manage to reach the surface of the planet. In such cases we reduce speed until we are moving at the same speed as the etheric covering.h. however. proceed as follows: Earth moves in orbit at 66.h.h. I should also add that we have means of stopping and starting the saucer in space and. For this reason we approach the etheric mass at a tangent. as you would not have any reliable means of correcting your speed in space.000 m.p. The principal technique in astro-navigation lies in establishing contact with the etheric covering of the planet we wish to reach.

or as intrepid sailors braving the turbulent seas of the Cosmos. and the difference between this speed and Jupiter's would be too great. You will not have these difficulties if you undertake a space journey one day. It is as though they were dying of thirst while sailing down the Amazon. It would be wrong for you to pass via Venus since this planet has a velocity of 77. They have only to lower a bucket into the water and fill it as often as they wish. The shock would be of unparalleled intensity. but we do not wish to bring about your ruin that way. If they would cease making war.p. the elder brothers in the solar system will show them how to turn this Earth into a Garden of Eden. lacking the intelligence to see that he needs only to take a single step to freedom. as we are sorry about many of the things they do.atmosphere moving at a high speed. You would be utterly destroyed. magnetic or cosmic energy. Maybe men would then come to understand the grandeur of the works of God who dispensed riches abundantly in every corner of the Universe. To fight for these things shows an ignorance of the greatness of the Universe. If they learn to be peace-loving and merciful. solar. If they need energy. and live like rational beings. there would be no second time. holding the reins of a fiery chariot. but only show how debased his feelings have now . We are aware that you threaten to dominate and even to destroy us. space sends it to them from all directions by means of cosmic rays. we would show them how to harness energy.000 m. because we shall have told you the dangers that can dog the steps of the most courageous traveller. We know because many of us made this mistake and died. man behaves like a turkey held within an imaginary circle. physical or mental suffering and difficulties in general are of no help to anybody. Pain. we should sorry to see the people of Earth fail. and see that there is no need to fight for land and lebensraum. It was also difficult for us to learn the secrets of space. be it atomic. On the contrary. Do not believe that God made the world evil.h. for it is His wish that all should be happy. We would prefer to see you as horsemen of space. You have only to listen to us and tell the pundits of Earth that it is wiser for an individual to profit by the experience of others than to reach the same result at the price of his own life. Maybe men would also cease destroying one another in warfare over some wretched oil wells which are no more important than holes in the ground. Nobody's suffering brings Him any satisfaction. Io can also be recommended. if we approached a planet with only vertical acceleration and no horizontal acceleration? A: You would only do this once. Q: What would happen if we were to stop the craft? For example. It would be as though you were standing on a railway line and a train ran into you at high speed.

It is an indication that we are ready to help you with all our resources. We do not rely on our forces. but on the paramount power of the Universe. If one day you should recount to others what I have told you. we would greet you with a friendly dip of the wing. We are not interested in your raw materials. they believe in progress but disregard finer feelings. we have come to present ourselves and to offer you help. In a few years their swords will be drawn. assure them if one day any country in the world decides to abandon destruction. personally. and not a hair on his head would perish. to live together with the people and enjoy their company. together with thousands of others. Men preach peace but destroy the Earth. even at the cost of many living. It is because we would like to share what we have with those who have not. he will at once have countless brothers at his side to help him. . they talk of love and perpetrate deeds of hatred. I will come. We would like to see your Earth and land in your cities. not to mention the help and joy from on High. but in vain. tell them that I. Human blindness is deplorable. Everyone is responsible for the misery and oppression in which he finds himself If man changes his heart and makes up his mind to be merciful and good. In this we are obeying an order. asking for nothing in return save the right to call each other friends. Rest assured that the Father is more ready to give than the son is to ask. making a holocaust in honour of their Moloch. If we were in too much of a hurry to come down. At the moment the Great Powers of Earth are preparing to make war. if the pill is bitter we coat it with sugar. It is like giving medicine to a child. which always supports the efforts of beings who follow the right path. becoming worse than beasts. While explaining the scientific points we are at the same time making a desperate appeal to you to unite in the great Christian doctrine of brotherhood and to renounce wars for ever. If anything produces suffering. and our hearts are glad to be able to extend a helping hand to others. alone. We waited for this transformation to come about. in the name of the inhabitants of my planet. to give them material help and moral support. Even if this should happen to a man instead of a country. You must be wondering why I am revealing all our knowledge without restriction.become. However fruitless our efforts may be. it is resentment and blasphemy against Him who continually showers blessings on us. and a host of victims will fall to the self-interest of a few potentates who stop at nothing to gain their objectives. because we can obtain them at will by transmutation. we would still come to this man. We have been watching the carnage on Earth for some time and we had hoped that man might one day understand the work of God and repent.

since those that come too close to the satellites of Jupiter are deflected. We do not bargain with the gifts that God gave us. and decreases when it crosses it in the Earth's wake? A: When the Moon is ahead of the Earth. When the light presses upon it. seeing no necessity for the Divine Presence in their lives. tell us. it is obvious that the pressure of light gives an impulse to the surface of the Moon. hoping to take back with us a warm friendship. however. Abundance blinded them. Why? A: This is again due to the force of repulsion which light exerts upon bodies. we do not expect you to have any greater feeling of brotherhood for us than you have for each other.You would come to us and be able to live in our world. Strife is the product of egoism. and would not like it to be turned down. and we will help you. to see that wars take place against the wishes of most people. of those who need no help and who even renounce God. it seems that comets avoid approaching other bodies. This is like a system of transmission of forces. why is it that the Earth's velocity in orbit increases when the Moon crosses this orbit ahead of the Earth. because poor people do not fight easily. all goods are held in common. Each satellite acts as a . Q: You told me that if a comet approached the Earth against the direction of the Earth's rotation. for a man of principles does not fight. The light from the satellites does not only fall upon the planet. Carnage has become the perquisite of the rich and powerful. It cannot be said that they fight for principles. this impulse is transmitted magnetically back to Earth as though it were impelling the Earth from the rear. are love of God and of one's neighbour. If there should be misery as a result of wars. gluttony clouded their vision. We would be quite content with a small corner in the human heart when it becomes full of love for its fellow beings. and which also guide life on other worlds. As the Moon is within the Earth's magnetic field. because in our society. but put ourselves in the position of being able to hand them out. making use of all that we have. SUNDRY TOPICS Q: Taking your theory that the light of the Sun repels bodies in space. However. The great principles that have guided the life of many men on Earth. and that the tides are caused by the force of this light reflected from the Moon. Among us the only currency is brotherhood. It saddens me. We offer our hand to you in these dire straits. The opposite happens when the Moon crosses in the wake of the planet. However. but goes out in all directions. it is as though it opposed the Earth. it would be shattered.

it should take the same time to go as it takes to come back. forming concentric circles according to the density of their matter. Michelson in his famous experiment found no ether. On this false premise. This is what happened to Saturn. A mass M may rotate at any speed. Q: You spoke. and are forced to change direction. it takes the same time. without any loss of speed. who returns it. The fragments of the comet and of the satellite can still be seen in this ring. and both satellite and comet were transformed into a huge ring. for instance. then it will be deviated from its path. they remain in the same relative positions. You see that the speed of the bus is external. Michelson should have reasoned his experiment out in the same way. could not exist if the ether moves with the same angular velocity as the Earth. Michelson is not to be blamed. having sufficient acceleration to overcome the repulsive force of the light. the one behind throws a ball to the other in front. nor could it be found. which are deflected by their joint effect. One particular comet. demolished a satellite in its path. If a fly takes off from the rear of a bus travelling at high speed. A: Exactly. would it take more than is seconds for it to fly back to the rear of the bus? Q: No. of an envelope of ether around the Earth. The blame lies with those who thought that the ether was universal and stationary in relation to Earth. If the ball is thrown with the same force in each direction. It could no more be retarded in relation to the ether than the ball in relation to the atmosphere.mirror on the comets. A comet entered the solar system. it takes the same time because it is flying inside the vehicle. It does not matter what the speed is to an observer outside the system. A: He found none. owing to the resistance of the ether. The retardation which he thought to find in the speed of light. that is to say in relation to points outside the bus. the . It-is as though one were to say there is no atmosphere because it did not cause the ball to loose velocity when the bus was travelling at high speed. Inside the bus there is no speed. the important thing is to observe whether two points of the mass move at different speeds. also. it is a question of relative velocity between two points in the same system. then the comet will quite probably reach the planet. Let us now suppose that one person is seated in the rear and another in front. This resulted in an acceleration of 1. However. light being like thr ball going from one part of the bus to another. however. but if this light meets it anywhere near head on. When two bodies develop identical velocity in the same direction. If the direction of the approaching body is such that it receives the effective light of the satellites at an angle. anybody would have come to the same erroneous conclusion.400 miles per second. and flies to the front in is seconds. Everything depends upon the speed with which one body approaches the other. The most difficult problems can be explained with the simplest illustrations. approached the Sun and was at the same time repelled by it. and the position of the satellites at that moment. If a minor premise in a syllogism is wrong.

or infra-red rays. in this case the mirror. say air and water. In water. We must consider certain aspects of the problem. We must therefore go back to first principles. Again.000 miles per second. these rays require a medium adapted to their wavelength and frequency. just as it is if a major premise is involved. Let us take this a stage further. that is. A single pressure on the eyeball or the optic nerve can demonstrate this fact. In this case some of the visible light falls to a lower frequency and becomes invisible on account of this resistance by the barrier. (4) Retardation of light due to the resistance of the medium should be sought by comparing two different media. On looking at the Moon.). If we say that visible light travels in space with a speed of 186. That is to say that ether has the same impulse as light. This shows that there is pressure. the reflection is never complete because part of the light is absorbed. as they have much higher frequencies. Is this constant correct? The answer is no. we should be right. it was because: (1) There can be no retardation in the movement of a body if all points of its mass move with the same speed. resistance and absorption. actinic or ultra-violet rays are invisible light and travel with much greater speed than visible light. for they cannot pass through a vacuum. It depends on what we call light. (3) The basis of measurement was very small (12 yd. As far as that experiment was concerned. the resistance which Michelson sought and did not find is to be found in a mirror which reflects light. less its velocity. in the process of reflection. for example. Infra red rays are a form of invisible light and their speed is much less than that of visible light. (5) Light is only visible on the planet if it has a speed of i86. There are species of animals which see in another frequency range and for them night is day and vice versa. require a dense medium.conclusion is wrong. always assuming that the speed equals frequency times wavelength. Heat rays. because a resistance is set up by the barrier. Michelson found a constant for the speed of light. but we should be wrong if we thought that this speed constant applied to waves of different frequency ranges. False theories produce wrong results. . Something which is darkness for you may be flooded with light for me.000 miles per second. If he found that the ether had no retarding effect on light. For their propagation. we notice that this reflected light is softer. it was a false premise on which the people of Earth have elaborated a whole theory. chemical. (2) The medium was a homogeneous one.

Looking at the problem in this way. how much will it lose in 407. a thin covering.000 in the atmosphere. In a Geissler tube also. since this "fatigue" of light is progressive or in geometrical progression.000 km.758 km. measured at the Earth's surface. Its emission is never uniform. Q: Why a twofold effect? . It is only 140. of etheric mass. We have reached a point where we can say that the light of the Sun exerts on Earth a pressure equal to the weight of light. equal to the equatorial radius of Earth. which is the extra distance the light must travel to reach the observer. Therefore. such as the "Coal Sack" in the Milky Way.000 mgcs. For the Sun emits its energy at various wavelengths and at different frequencies.758 km.200? If the wavelength remains the same and the frequency is considerably increased. the light that reaches the Earth's surface is modified. Between white and red light there is a difference of 30. While the latter has to penetrate 400. density has a considerable effect on its speed. of ether. but not as well as infra-red rays do.250.000 miles per second. this must mean that the waves from the Sum reach the Earth's etheric covering at a much higher speed as shown by the formula: Wavelength = distance travelled through etheric covering/ over 1 We can see the same thing in the difference of the speed of light in the atmosphere.Visible light can travel in a semi-vacuum and in a dense medium to a certain extent. and light that is above the visible spectrum on reaching the Earth arrives at far higher speeds. in 6. per second. a vacuum is the ideal medium for the propagation of waves above the frequency of visible light. However. This modification from white to red takes place over a distance of 6. plus the energy lost in traversing the 400.000 miles per second in water. when it is red. Light which becomes visible on reaching the Earth's surface reaches the etheric envelope of the Earth at a speed of 6. and in water. whose speed of revolution is low. as opposed to i86. In an absolute vacuum there is no propagation of light.000 mgcs. it can be seen that light ceases to cast a shadow when the pressure within the tube is very low. If this were not so. who protects the planets close to the Sun by giving them a cloak of dense atmosphere and ether. whereas at midday it is white. the chemical rays would destroy life on Earth. Behold the wisdom of God.200 km. The modification of solar light can be seen at sunrise or sunset. This can better be seen in the so-called holes in space. the light of the rising Sun has to travel 407. If the light loses 30. compared with the light at midday.822 km.. If we consider that the effect is twofold. we can arrive at an approximate idea of what that means.. and gives those distant ones.

Having thus obtained the pressure of solar light. The visible spectrum covers a band of several frequencies. For a long time he believed the Earth was the centre of the Universe.000 km. in turn. as the result of observations he made of eclipses of an inner satellite of Jupiter. as though wishing to impose his will on Nature by disbelieving anything beyond his senses. This energy may very well be beyond our range of perception. They came to the conclusion that the retardation was due to the Earth's position in relation to Jupiter.002 seconds later than predicted. Relativist science can therefore only show us the world as perceived by our senses. man is the only god there is. It is possible that certain birds are able to see on other wavelengths. Chemical rays have a far higher speed of transmission than light. where phenomena beyond our perception take place. the second eclipse taking place 1. Light is therefore not necessarily the fastest moving energy in space. there can be no intelligence superior to his. There can be no other light than that . as light loses weight. per second. He believes that he is the ne plus ultra of Creation. but this does not mean to say that energy of a higher frequency is limited to this low speed. per second.then the speed of light must equal this figure divided by the 1. If man had the power of vision that certain animals possess. When this theory was disproved. Together with his teacher Cassini he observed an eclipse of this satellite when the Earth was in conjunction with Jupiter and again when it was in opposition. there is a great difference between the wavelength of red and violet light. If he then built up a relativist theory with these data his conception of the Universe would also be very different to ours. The speed of waves in the visible spectrum is actually 300.A: Because. there can be no beings greater than he. his results would certainly be different to ours. which are invisible to us. that is to say 300. We must bear in mind that our power of sight which only operates on one octave is very limited. is a factor. for example. we can then determine the flux density of the magnetic field. Man is an egocentric being. and reasoning that Earth's stability in orbit is due to the equilibrium between the forces of attraction and repulsion. and then verified the speed of the light that he was seeing with.000 km. The Danish scientist Olaf Roemer established the speed of light in 1676. he came to believe that the Universe was the result of our limitations. travelling at far higher speeds than the visible ones. A raven. its frequency falls correspondingly and this.000 second delay. Waves above the visible spectrum may well have reached the Earth long before that. it is evident that the magnetic field that causes the attraction must exactly counterbalance the force of repulsion. and never the ultimate Universe. and that as the diameter of the Earth's orbit was 300 million km . can see in complete proves that even at night there is energy in space. there can be no life outside the Earth.

Thus it is that the ancient astronomers based their calculations on a year of 355 days. and not the movement that the Earth describes around the magnetic centre. The first optical effect that this gives rise to is to make it appear to the inhabitants of a planet that the angle of the planet's axis in relation to the Sun changes as the planet moves round in its orbit every year. Roemer observed two eclipses of Jupiter at an interval of 2oo days. . lies at an angle of 460 to the mean plane of the planets. This shift in the Sun's position caused the eclipse to take place at a different time. revolves around the magnetic centre in a different plane which. and on this basis calculated its speed at i86. Roemer must definitely have taken one of these phenomena into his calculations. and pushing the planet upward when going down in its plane of revolution. How do you explain this?' A: I have never studied Roemer's mathematical data. and was 6. however. which takes 365 days. the Sun had moved though approximately half of its orbit. In this time. in fact nothing exists that does not come within the scope of man's arrogant self-assertion. The true inclination is due to the Sun exerting a downward pressure and pushing the planet down in its orbit.which tallies with the results obtained by other experiments.125. Olaf Roemer noted that light took a certain time to cover the distance represented by the diameter of the Earth's orbit. when rising in its own plane of revolution. The Sun moves around the magnetic centre in an orbit of 6.000 miles per second. which gives the appearance that all the planets are also displaced.250. which is the true solar year.000 miles from its original position. The Sun. and its southern when the Sun is going down into its lower node. due to the movement of the Sun. In the first place we need to know more about the movements of the Sun. but as the results of his experiments are at complete variance with the facts. let us study the optical phenomena which appear to take place in space and which are in fact illusions.000 miles in diameter and completes one revolution in 355 days. All the planets move in a given plane which we can call the equatorial plane of the system. we are also subject to the illusion that the Sun describes a pendulum-like movement in space. giving greater illumination to its northern hemisphere when the Sun is rising towards its upper node. to be exact. but for the most part this is optical illusion. It is true that the orbits of all the planets are inclined to a certain extent. The remainder is optical illusion due to the fact that the displaced Sun is taken as a fixed point of reference.which he sees. Q: Notwithstanding the explanation you have just given.

What I mean is that the satellite would still have about 1. which you consider very advanced. If we give a man an injection which causes him to go mad. the Earth's angle to the ecliptic is 23 degrees 25'.000 seconds in the time of the eclipse. but only internal ones. In the second place. How could God expect man to be good if He placed him in such adverse conditions? God does not tempt anyone.If a point or a satellite were casting a shadow on Jupiter. and we could then make our calculation with accuracy. no blame can be attached to him.000 seconds to go before the predicted eclipse would actually take place. Evil is the result of arrogance and the audacity of man in disregarding the divine laws. Q: Has the angle of the ecliptic any effect on the spirit of human beings? A: None at all. 25 degrees 12'. This is the second factor which may have passed unnoticed to any observer. But in any case the eclipse can be said to have taken place at a given time in relation to a point on Jupiter. Mars. Roemer could have made an error in calculation due to one of these phenomena. the change in the Sun's position in 200 days would have made a change of several miles in the position of the shadow. Let us take an example: let us place two bodies in such a way that from the point of observation an imaginary line from the observer to them would touch the surface of each at a tangent. Good and evil derive from the heart. either of which would have brought him into error. but owing to the angle of observation we would get an impression of relative retardation. If we had the exact time of the eclipse we could work out how far the planet had moved in that time. This is why Roemer's calculation was incorrect. If what you say were true. If the satellite revolves at a given distance from Jupiter. In this case one of the bodies would have to move again for the imaginary line to meet it at a tangent. What virtue would there be in man being good if this were the result of conditions for which he was not responsible? The same thing would apply to evil. Venus 32 degrees. Saturn 26 degree 45' Neptune 29 degrees and Uranus 68 degrees. . depending on the satellite's distance from the planet. the line also moves. If we move the bodies from this position. this would cause an apparent retardation of approximately 1. however attentive he may have been. we need to take note of the angle at which Jupiter was seen from the Earth. and he then goes berserk. External factors do not affect the spirit. other planets would be far worse off.

whereas the other. A: It is due to the chemical light. even if there were no angle of inclination. but I can tell you that the function of light consists largely in creating conditions in space by which various phenomena can be perceived at a distance. There are other optical phenomena which would take us a long time to explain. drops too much in frequency to be reflected. Mars is reddish and the others white. One should not confuse virtues with phenomena of a mechanical order. Good has nothing to do with gear wheels.16.5. If it were not for this chemical light. would be in a state of moral depravity. At the distance which Pluto is from the Sun.62 The light that we see on planets is the modified light of the Sun and also the physiochemical light. However. whereas Mercury. If one looks at a shadow.

It originates from the passage of energy though hydrogen and sodium layers on the Sun. Jupiter 0. this little planet shines in space. Q: What is the chemical light? A: Sunlight always maintains its direction of focus on its journey through space. The Earth's reflection is given as 0. Saturn 0. This is not the moment to discuss metaphysics. The good people on Earth would be good even if the poles were reversed. or if they were in Paradise.Uranus then. is small and the amount of energy it receives is insignificant. Pluto's light is not of solar origin as this light. but other more distant planets have a greater reflective capacity.51. its light would not otherwise be seen. in spite of its relative proximity to the Sun.

Q: Why is there a difference in the colour of light reflected from different planets." This is due to the fact that Pluto's atmosphere is extremely sensitive to solar waves and sets up a violent reaction to this very small quantity of energy.

. as well as certain vegetables which produce a luminescence by bacteriological action. showing that the electrons were stopped. electrons are unable to penetrate the walls of the tube. I could quote many other examples. which are then transformed into heat waves. It would take a very long time to explain this in detail. This transformation takes place in the atmosphere of the planets. or. can one see shadows and Faraday bands inside the lighted tube. it is merely a field in which electrical forces operate. At the poles. the electrons would not go through it. I would like you to give me one example. Is there any truth in this? A: Heat comes from the Sun. Many insects develop cold light. but one is enough to disprove the theory. Light could not get out of the tube. A neon bulb shows that light is not always hot. Q: Some people say that the heat observed on Earth comes to us from the Sun. This cross causes a shadow. where the Sun's rays pour down at right angles. Its luminosity is not related to its heat. if that is possible. Even the heat on the Sun is bearable. on Earth there are also sources of cold light. At sunrise the oblique rays of the Sun do not exert any pressure and one has the impression that the Sun is a large red disc of no power. We should not confuse light and image because universal phenomena take place everywhere at the same time. That is why we feel colder the higher we go. They do not come from the Sun in the form of heat because heat will not travel through a vacuum. Besides the heat that is developed by the frequency of the Sun s rays. but in the form of high frequency waves. if light or electrons are incapable of going through glass. A: I will give you an example: in an ordinary Geissler tube. yet one could see into it. It is nonsense to say that temperatures of several million degrees exist on the Sun. and the pressure is very small. Some aurorae are the result of electrical reactions in the ionosphere. At the Equator. A generator is cold.Q: Although you do not wish to go into metaphysics. heat is also developed by the pressure of the light of the Sun. how. but the currents it produces can give rise to high temperatures. any other material except alumimum. I gather from your words that light has to reach us for us to be able to see a phenomenon taking place at a distance. the polar cold is the result of obliqueness of the Sun's rays and their deflection by the magnetic effect. So. the heat is great. I ask. So. these rays are to a very great extent repelled by the magnetic effect. for that matter. but others are due to the deflection of rays at a height giving rise to luminosity in the upper reaches of the atmosphere. but when it is at its zenith one can sense the intensity of its rays pushing against the ground. This has been proved experimentally by placing a cross inside the tube in the electron beam. Even if this cross were made of glass.

crying out to other glowworms. . We are all imperfect. the light in my tail is the only light there is. who postulated a speed of light. when the Earth went into conjunction with Jupiter. What surprises and pains me is that scientists of Earth should continue to put their trust in their false science. "The Sun does not exist. On the basis of Galileo's ideas. he calculated that this retardation must be due to the time that light took to travel across the diameter of the Earth's orbit. the defects often predominating. So you see. therefore perfection is an attribute which can only be found complete in divinity. Taking this diameter as 300 million km. my friend. per second for the speed of light. but this is not always the case. I am not surprised at this because things in life are not judged by the errors they may contain but by their truth. This Danish scientist noted that the eclipse of Jupiter's satellite lo always took place slightly later than the predicted time. he merely divided this by the 1. OLAF ROEMER'S EXPERIMENT OLAF ROEMER'S conclusions regarding the speed of light certainly appear to be false. your science contains many errors.Q: You say that it gets colder as we go up. In us.000 km. he calculated the exact time at which a subsequent eclipse should occur. 200 days later.000 seconds retardation and arrived at a figure of 300. His actual observations showed that the eclipse took place approximately 1000 seconds later than predicted. Various layers produce this reaction. At a certain altitude the thermometer goes up to 22000 F. it is always mingled with defects. A: The heat that is encountered at these altitudes derives from the physiochemical reaction that I mentioned. Having taken note of the time of the eclipse when the Earth was in opposition to Jupiter. They are like glow-worns enamoured of their own light. In spite of all its errors they have been unable to rectify and to deny the supreme science which is God.

It is. however.1 = in its orbit at the time of the first eclipse. and at E. not difficult to disprove Roemerr's reasoning. allowing for trigonometric corrections due to lines of sight passing 70.2 an advance. If we take its position at E. Distance Sun Jupiter = 780.000.

The time difference observed can be mathematically shown as follows: Distance Sun E. Let us take Fig.000 km.000 km.000 km. Let us suppose that the Earth was in position E. 8 shows the position of the planets concerned at that time.

When Roemer reached the conclusion that there was a retardation due to the speed of light. we can. per second This means that a movement of the Earth in its orbit through 90 degree causes a time difference in an eclipse of Io of 3696 seconds.400 km. . Seeing that the Earth had moved in its orbit from position A to position B (Fig. moved through 197degree 122 degree in its orbit. -------------. On this scale. per second.= 0.

we get 3. it would be difficult to see how the relativist theory of physics would have developed without them. Using this as a basis for the calculation. the data we are using are approximate. but is not due to the speed of light. As Roemer's deductions are false. It is possible that Roemer based his calculations on an observation after or before the eclipse. Neither can we be sure that Io's distance from Jupiter is constant. where the distance varies as much as 42000 km. Jupiter may have been nearer or farther away from the Earth. Eclipses of Jupiter and Io take pLace every 42 hours 28 minutes 33 seconds.17 degrees corresponds to 29 per cent. The fact is that no one would have thought it possible for a great personage to have made an error of trigonometry. . as in the case of our Moon. Any of these factors may have accounted for the difference. Right or wrong they accepted his conclusions. but due to an optical effect which can be clearly illustrated by trigonometry. We do not entirely deny that light has a certain speed at which it moves through space. as the speed of light was the cornerstone of the whole theory.= 1. especially as he was considered infallible. and any variation would alter the result. even though much research has been put into it since Roemer's day. But in any case the retardation noted certainly exists.696 seconds X 29 -------------------.071 seconds 100 There is a difference between our calculations and Roemer's of 71 seconds because we do not know the exact position of Jupiter when the eclipse took place. Further. we are merely pointing out Roemer's false assumptions which science has not troubled to revise.

If it does exist then it must move through our system with a speed that makes it virtually instantaneous. As the phenomenon of light and space is of fundamental interest to the whole of physics. we enlisted the opinion of various European universities and some famous physicists. In the first edition of this book we refrained from inserting the full explanation of the captain's point of view. as shown in Fig. who is worthy of our respect. In any case in Roemer's observations these lines coincide exactly and the variation amounts to 1. The above illustration is only given to show the reader that a certain phenomenon may have various explanations with very divergent results. but gave us various explanations of the possible traps that Roemer could have fallen into. if this exists at all. as both are the same. anyone versed in astronomy could raise the objection that Roemer did not base his calculations on the apparent eclipse that Io undergoes every 42 hours. we must also consider that contrary to our analysis. it would be equally inconsistent as the penumbra also alters its position as the planet moves in its orbit through space. if this objection were raised. Where we first mentioned Roemer's calculations to the captain of the flying saucer. 12. he stated he was not conversant with his theory. It is immaterial whether the lines Aji or CJ2 were lines of sight or were made by the light of the Sun. His views are given in the following pages. However.071 seconds. _____________________________________________________________________ ____________________ . and can even be considered the keystone to all science. However. One cannot come to hasty conclusions without viewing the problem from all angles.We do not guarantee the absolute correctness of our calculations. It is not the intention to discredit the work of this famous scientist. but on its real eclipse due to its entry into the penumbra that is formed on the face of-a planet opposite the Sun. It is evident that Jupiter's continued movement in orbit would bring about a difference between a line of sight of an observer on Earth and that of the light of the Sun which makes the penumbra. but we do maintain that the time of an eclipse is advanced or retarded according to the position the planets occupy in space. quite independently of the speed of light.

Perhaps if we examine these.2. It is said that after his death. Let me have some sheets of paper and I will draw some diagrams by way of explanation. science ceased to believe in God. the details on which science bases its conclusions are known to me. they concluded that He did not exist. succinctly. No finite principle could be God. and I can quote them from memory. But if there is a time lag in the movement of light through space. it must be because He is finite rather than infinite and could not therefore sustain the Universe. If it is your wish to make us believe in God. A: (after having studied the mathematical background). because he never published them. In the light of your information I can now give you a rapid review of the question. and if we noted the time of an eclipse with the Sun in position as S. To take a concrete example: on the basis of the phenomenon observed by Olaf Roemer. indeed. Let us look at the following diagram: If the Sun were to revolve round the planets instead of vice versa. This is. you will never achieve this without a clear analysis of the principles that science has espoused. and again in position S. God could therefore not be omnipresent since He would need time to get from place to place. then light cannot be said to be ubiquitous. we would note an advance in the time . or akin to light. However.Q: It is a pity that you cannot give a full explanation of this phenomenon as this would be of great value to us. we could arrive at a definite conclusion on which you can give your opinion. Then. The scientists reasoned as follows: They say that God is light. It is.1. If He is not omnipresent. not strange that you are not familiar with Roemer's calculations. as there could be no real God subject to time and space. his work was virtually destroyed and only came to be known through one of his friends publishing his findings. the reasoning behind scientific materialism.

Earth should have moved through 197. the diameter of Jupiter.of the eclipse.122 degree of its orbit in 200 days. line of sight makes a tangent to the planet sight" observation of the the planet's movement in The point at which this we will call A. Note that in the case of the first eclipse the line of sight made a tangent to the planet at A. I will also take this opportunity to call your attention to a mistake made by astronomers which has a considerable bearing on the dimensions of the Universe. and in the case of the second eclipse it made a tangent at F. Now try and follow the reasoning very carefully.98561 degree . taking its mean sidereal day as O. Then deducting 1800 we are left . or in other words. Note again that in the first eclipse lo was in position L1. unaltered by the fact that Jupiter revolves round the Sun. The phenomenon is. therefore. Let us see how this operates with the aid of another diagram: The horizontal lines represent the "line of eclipses having regard for the direction of orbit which in this case is anti-clockwise. This is shown in the diagram as the line AF. we do not know the exact distance of Jupiter from the Earth at the time of the eclipse. however. According to the astronomical data we have here. Now we begin to see the reasons for the time lag which you maintain is due to the limited speed of light by which you try to banish God from the Universe. is equal to the equatorial diameter. but there is a principle which states that all bodies moving in an orbit are subject to advance or retardation depending on the position they occupy in space. The difference. I do not know whether this comes in the scope of the "rational mechanics" on Earth. To begin with. as we shall see later. whereas in the case of the second eclipse it was in position L2 and between the Sun and Jupiter.2 the eclipse would already have taken place. That is. in position S. In this case we have to presuppose the existence of an equatorial diameter which is not included in your calculations. and farthest away from the Sun.

618. Jupiter's mean sidereal day is in the region of 0. as the angle of sight was not wide enough to allow him to see this.122degrees. since we made it intersect exactly at point A.45 degree will be found to be equal to this arc. Thus it is that with only 17. We now only need to see how to do the calculation with the aid of a further diagram.45 degree of movement the line of sight AP moves round to AQ. there should be no difference in the angle at which Jupiter is seen from the Earth. but this does not make sense.47 degree.thus making the number of days to 2031/2.with 17. two further eclipses will bring it to 115. as with both planets moving in the same direction. He must have seen it happening before opposition and after conjunction.45d egree to simplify the calculation. This would vary slightly in perihelion or aphelion due to the difference in speed brought about by the pressure of sunlight. with the corrections that we have made. with a mean sidereal day of only 0. As the satellite completes 113 revolutions in 200 days. The angle that Jupiter moves through between opposition and conjunction with the Earth is 17. 14 a movement of i80 degree of the Earth in its orbit will have brought about an inversion of the points at which the line of sight makes a tangent to the planet. If we can accept these figures. in 2oo days Io will have completed 113 revolutions of the planet. Yet Roemer could not have seen an eclipse either at the exact time of opposition or of conjunction. Let us say 17.08561 degree. we can make a further diagram: We saw that in Fig. so that if we add 3 1/2 days we would get a total of 17. In this time. brings the planet back into its position of opposition. Jupiter. . which. for the purposes of calculation. In the first position the line touches A and in the second.122degree.08309 degree would have moved through 16. Now let us take this angle as a starting point. In this case the line AQ cuts through part of the planet forming an arc. at F. But this inversion takes place slowly as the planet moves through space. The retardation occasioned by the movement of 17. 180 degree later.

13. The angle EB EA is 33. From point B we draw a line at right angles to EA which will meet the latter at C.FIG.80 or sin 0. Equatorial radius of Jupiter = EB = BA Sin EB =BC Tan BC = AC = 13000 km. From this point we make a line from the circumference to the centre at E. Let us further work out what this distance represents in time./seconds .. which we shall call B. 16. Jupiter moves in its orbit at a speed of 13 km.45 degree or tan 0. we now only need to convert this into seconds.32O1.45 degree will therefore equal the distance AC. We can now see how the phenomenon takes place.000 km.000 seconds 13 km.000 km. per second.558 the angle BC BA is 17. The line AQ determines a point of intersection on the circumference of a planet. Having established the distance AC as 13. We can work this out by various means but we have adopted the one which is most easily shown graphically. The retardation of the planet after moving through ~7.= 1. EB is then equal to the equatorial radius of Jupiter and is the same as EA. ----------.

If we were to move the planet gradually back from the position J. As the planet moves so do points B and C. At 45 degree the distance between A and B is at a maximum and begins to decrease again until the 90 degee position. He attributed this to the time that light takes to cover the distance across the Earth's orbit. 17. and that the points B and C would move closer together until they coincided at point A. In the next figure we can see the variations of the movement of the equatorial axis we mentioned. When Jupiter was in position J.2 through the ~7. but it is the conclusions which have been drawn from it which are not so excusable. but the line AC continues to lengthen which means that the time noted for the eclipse will be changed very little. because we all make plenty. which we also found.Roemer observed a time difference of 1. points AB and C coincide and the line of sight is at right angles to the equatorial axis AF. we have shown that this extraordinary hypothesis which led scientists to banish God from the Universe has a perfectly simple trigonometrical explanation.I and the Earth in opposition. But let us continue the reasoning and see whether our calculations are accurate. This would be more than sufficient to demonstrate the irrationality of Earth's people when they speak of a speed of light.000 seconds. making a triangle whose area increases in relation to the angle the axis makes to the Sun. Fig. we would see that the line AQ would eventually become the line AP. and when they use this to support their materialist theories of limitation and curvature of space.2 these points were moved as the line AP proceeded to form the line AQ. At the starting point 0 degree. but when the planet had moved to position J. It was excusable for him to have made a mistake.45 degree that it had covered. the points ABC all coincided at point A. At the 90 degree position it will be seen that B .

as was the case with the planet in the 0 degree position.000 km. This would be due to the defraction of light as in the case of the Sun appearing larger at sunrise or sunset than it does at midday. it would be easy to check the diameter of Jupiter and in consequence the optical problem. .780km EB .612 km. you can compare this with the radius obtained by optical measurement.000 km. However. and you will find a percentage difference between the two.and C coincide completely at F. 16): If the line AC 13.558 Having obtained the equatorial radius of Jupiter. If Jupiter unwittingly contributed to the establishment of scientific materialism on Earth. points ABC are again coincident.612 Sin = EB =72. science maintaining erroneously that light takes a certain amount of time to move through space. to avoid contradicting terrestrial mathematics. which you have not thought of. the diameter of the planet will be 13. Let us proceed as follows (see Fig. like other planets. what we have now shown may well mean that she will be able to supply the proof of the error of existing theories. = BC 0. This axial rotation. At the 180 degree position. This is why I told you beforehand what I based my calculations on. From that position to the 180 degree position. science maintains equally erroneously that it revolves once on its axis for every revolution in orbit. explains the peculiarities of Mercury.3201 tan angle BC BA BC __ 40. We also notice that in this phase the triangle formed by ABC is on the opposite side of the baseline AF. when the relative time difference will be equal to the equatorial axis or diameter. the time difference is equal to that of the diameter of the planet. Astronomers observing the planet on its equatorial plane have noted that it rotates once on its axis for each revolution in orbit. yet this is not the whole story. -----------. as the line of sight of an eclipse must now pass through point F and no longer through point ABC. It is the same effect as we saw in the case of Jupiter.3201 where 0. its speed of axial rotation is equal to its velocity in orbit. Having shown this. point B again moving round the circumference towards point A. the position of points B and C is inversed and they again move towards point A. Thus it is that the mass and the volume of Jupiter are not exactly those given by you.=40. We have seen that. In the case of Mercury.0.

What happens is that Mercury has a very rapid axial rotation. This does not take place on the equatorial plane of the solar system, but at right angles to it. Mercury is really a satellite of the Sun and not, strictly speaking, a planet, because only satellites have this peculiarity. Having put this detail right, we can go much further. We can disprove the theory of relativity and Planck's quantum theory. Planck observed radiation in dark bodies and finding no explanation for this in the wave theory of light, he established the quantum theory to show the discontinuity of energy. Roemer's fallacious theory of light lent him support. Now an electron, as a wave form, is moved in an anti-clockwise circle. In this spiraloid movement it has a discontinuous wave surface rather like a spiral spring. The movement itself is not discontinuous, but only appears so by virtue of its spiralling movement. It also shows a magnetic phenomenon cancelling out the charge on one side which gives an observer the impression that the energy moves in jumps. Further, it is subject to the outcome of the difference of charge due to this magnetic effect, as well as the result of its rotation, behaving like a globe, as a planet does in relation to the Sun. This is a rough resume of the quantum theory which physicists boast of. The whole thing is a misinterpretation of simple trigonometrical phenomena. Before Father No one only a denying God on the basis of this reasoning they should ask the for insight as He is the only one who can reveal His secrets. will be able to penetrate the Universe with the support of very limited power of reasoning.

The Universe is a house with an owner, and nobody, however rational he may be, can enter without the owner's consent. Let them ask the owner to accompany them and show them the peculiarities and details of every room. They should not try to emulate the toad who, wishing to be like an ox, swallowed so much air that his stomach swelled up and burst. Man will not achieve anything by breathing the air of complicated theories in the hope of increasing his stature. True growth is always accompanied by humility. Science is a majestic palace with a narrow, low doorway which is barred to the proud. Here only the humble find reward, and those without faith and humility towards their Creator find nothing but confusion. The foregoing were the words of our informant showing us the changes on Jupiter which gave the impression that there was a time factor involved in the movement of light through space, whereas this, in fact, was due to a trigonometrical phenomenon. For people who are used to dealing with mathematical problems this simple demonstration will be sufficient for them to draw their conclusions and to correlate the movement of the satellite. But as this book was written for the general public, who may not have had time to go deeply into these matters, we will endeavour to illustrate the movement of the satellite lo in the simplest possible manner.

The arc formed by the line AB in Fig. 16 should be equal to 42,422 km. In 200 days time, the line AP (see Fig. 18) will only touch the circumference at a tangent. However, the movement that a point in the circumference would undergo in this time is: 42,4.22 ------------ _ = 21,211 km. = AM = BM 2 If the position of point A moves the above number of kilometres in 200 days, this means that point A moves at a speed of 106 km per day. The speed of IO in space is high, but low in relation to the surface of Jupiter, that is to say that it has a lower angular velocity. Thus the speed of IO in relation to the speed of the surface of the planet is only 3 km. per second.

Let us now study Fig. 18 again. At the time of the observation at opposition Io must have been at point P. At the time of conjunction it must have been at point Q. In reality, however, 1,ooo seconds before the eclipse took place, it must have been at R, RQ representing the distance it moved in 1,000 seconds. In order to explain this, let us consider the following: Science reckoned that Io completed a revolution in orbit every 152,913 seconds, that being the time required for the satellite to leave a point of reference and return to that same point again. The light of the Sun was taken as a reference point, by observing the exact moment which Io entered the penumbra. However, the light of the Sun, represented by the line AQ, moves at the rate of 106 km. per day. This change also changes the time of Io's movement through space, since the calculation of this movement is based on the line AQ. If the change in the surface of Jupiter is 106 km. per day, and if Io has a relative velocity of 3 km. per second, this means that the change brought about in the line AQ alters the timing of Io's

observed movement by 35 seconds per day. Thus the true time of Io's revolution in orbit is 152,878 seconds and not 152,913 seconds. At the rate of 35 seconds per day there will be a difference of 7,000 seconds in 200 days. If it moves in orbit at 20 km. per second, this will amount to 140,000 km., which is the distance between points P and R on Fig. 18. From this it will be seen that at the moment when the eclipse was expected to take place, Io was still at point R, it still had to cover the distance RQ before the eclipse could actually be seen. Distance RQ is 20,000 km., and with a speed of 20 km. per second Io would move from R to Q in 1,000 seconds,

20,000 ie -------------20 km./second. Having shown this, one can conclude that light moves instantaneously through space. At a time when knowledge of astronomy was slight and when many people found it difficult even to believe that the Earth moved round the Sun, it would have been very difficult for Roemer to have arrived at a correct result. With all its faults his work was admirable, taking into consideration the conditions under which he worked, the data at his disposal and the limited knowledge of his time. Everything is, however, subject to the effect of uninterrupted progress, and changes as we move forward. It would be folly to cling to theories, whether they be Roemer's or anyone else's, thereby trying to impede the progress of time and ideas that move like a river in flood, or to wish to put a limit to the understanding of phenomena like the cartographers of old who used to write on their maps at the Pillars of Hercules: Hic deficit orbis (Here ends the world). The theory of the speed of light is a modem equivalent to this attitude. However, the adventurous seamen of old were not deterred by these injunctions of their cartographers, who were the scientific elite of their times, and sailed onwards to discover a new continent. In the great and wonderful unknown now awaiting discovery, the Universe will be revealed to you, no longer with limitations, but as infinitely great as its Creator. It is a mansion of infinite size which serves as a residence for an infinite God Who, wishing to show us the vastness of space, said: "The Heaven is my throne, and the Earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye would build unto me?" (Isaiah 66: i). And we in our foolishness wish to build him a house to suit our ideas that are no larger than our small brains, as limited as relativity, and as cold and sepulchral as formulae. We made a coffin of the Universe and placed within it a mummified God. We inverted the

You use kilometres or miles as a measure of distance. You go into complicated mathematical calculations to determine. circumscribed by the boundaries of a Universe which was limited only by our reasoning. that is what we measure. We look upon it as the result of the force that impels a body through space. let us forget galactic time for the moment. or vice versa. But let us get back to Bradley. for us. What does exist then is the momentum that arises from the impulse of the force. and the shorter also the space to be traversed-or in your terminology. the distance. then you must be wrong. and your views on this would enable me to evaluate all that you have told me so far. whereas we take the galactic time as our yardstick. we can obtain the time equivalent of the diameter of the Earth's orbit by dividing this figure by pi that is 10. Do you follow? (Q) YES A: But this might confuse you and lead you to think that time is something to do with relativity. and assume that we are now using an Earth year as the basis of our measurements. . Time. Thus. He maintained that the aberration of the light of stars was due to the time that light took to traverse space.558. but in its equivalent in galactic time. To sum up: time and space are the outcome of a powerful Will acting on the Universe. If Bradley was right. let us say. whereas we are not interested in the number of kilometres this represents. I would like you to talk about the aberration of light. The Aberration of Light Q: Up to now you have been dealing with matters that I can neither prove nor disprove. as you already believe it to be. and not the force itself. Taking an Earth year as 31. they would cease to exist. This is hard to explain to people who are unaccustomed to seeing things from our point of view. if the force were infinitely great.045. But again the force is not everything.process of creation and made a god of our image and likeness. A: I will try to give you an answer and analyse the problem. plays the part that metres do for you. by which Bradley calculated the Earth's velocity in orbit. The body's movement is then only limited by the resistance it has to overcome. time and space would be infinitely small. because in reality it does not exist. taking note of its intensity in any given phenomenon. the diameter of the Earth's orbit. it will not be easy for me to base my arguments on the data supplied by Earth's scientists. On this basis he calculated that the Earth's velocity in orbit should be: Speed of light x Tan of Aberration. owing to the difference between their methods and ours.247 seconds. The greater the force the shorter the time. Again this impulse only exists as a function of a Will that gives rise to it. This is something which has been fully substantiated. I would never be able to find out whether what you say is true or false. all that exists is the impulse that is applied to the' body in space and imparts momentum to it. However. however.149 1/2 seconds. In our Universe this Will manifests itself as galactic time.

The movement of the Earth in its orbit in one day causes the light of the Sun to move forward over the Earth's surface in the direction of its rotation by just that much.But light in space is diffuse.e. that is 236 seconds less than a tropical day. the light of the stars will always be there ahead of it. We can convert this figure into terms of time by multiplying it by the number of seconds in a sidereal day and dividing this sum by 36O. Very well then. in a sense waiting for the Earth to reach it. or in other words one complete revolution of the Earth on its axis. we get 366.982917 degrees or 3.164 in a sidereal day. degree Viz 86.65834 degrees (i. But if two consecutive transits of the Sun and a star are taken.1491 1/2 seconds in a sidereal year and 86. unworthy of science. With 31. No inhabitant of Earth would be able to do this as easily as I can. This is to say that the time that should have appeared as one extra day in the year has been accounted for by a daily increment of 236 seconds in the length of each day. We cannot fully analyse the problem in your terms without studying the Earth's movements and correcting some of your data relating to its orbit.558.164 seconds long.164 X 1965834 . this we can calculate the daily sidereal movement of the Earth in its orbit in terms of degrees by dividing 360 degrees by the number of revolutions.2567 revolutions.400 seconds long. 20 X 0. we then find that this sidereal day is only 86. he would notice that his predictions of the time of the second eclipse would be out by 19. Let us first correct your figures. This the time the Sun takes to make two consecutive transits over a given point on the Earth's surface.538 1/2 minutes 366.982917 degree). You originally started by asking me scientific questions to find out where I came from. and wherever the Earth may happen to be in its orbit. there can therefore be no question of any delay in the transmission of light through space. A day in the Earth's tropical year is 86. without having recourse to any of your theories about light and without using your parallax methods. The number of seconds in a sidereal year divided by the number in a sidereal day will give us the number of revolutions the Earth makes on its axis in a year. That theory is nothing more than an inept sophism.2567 If an observer outside the Earth were to observe eclipses of the Moon at say twenty days' interval. I am going to correct your estimates of the Earth's orbit by a method which is still unknown to you on Earth. Viz: 360 degrees ______________ = 0. When the Earth at the end of a year has made a complete revolution in orbit. Later I could how you a dozen other ways of doing it if you wished. From. this daily forward movement of the sunlight will have accounted for a whole day.

This then is the amount of the apparent retardation of the eclipse as seen by an observer in space. Now there is a second point to consider.705 seconds once again as the result. Without these data. After the solstice it then turns southwards again.756 465. 360 The eclipse will therefore appear to take place 4. obtained in (1) above by the 465. the Sun has a movement of its own which cannot be seen from the Earth.756 km. it appears to move northwards. In fact. We can also arrive at the same result by another method: (1) Convert the number of degrees into kilometres.702 m. .883 km. per second or ________ = 86. These then are the first corrections. between then and the summer solstice on June 2 1st.. Viz: PI*12.102 m. Your astronomy attributes the time of the four seasons of the year to the movement of the Sun through the ecliptic. the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West. which is the distance on the Earth's surface represented by an arc of 19. taking the equatorial diameter of the Earth as 12. (2) Obtain the speed of the Earth's axial rotation in metres per second by multiplying the radius in kilometres by PI and dividing by the number of seconds in a sidereal day. (3) Divide the 21. it again crosses the Equator and continues its southerly movement until the winter solstice on December 22nd.705 seconds. per hour.705 seconds later than predicted._________________ = 4.65834 degree.674367 km.65834 _____________________ 360 This gives us 27.883 km. At the vernal equinox on March 21st. and using the following formula: 2*PI*radius*19. At the autumnal equinox on September 23rd. per second obtained in (2) above. the mean sidereal movement of the Earth and is true speed of rotation. we cannot calculate the Earth's orbit with any accuracy. This gives us 4.164 1.

19.223. The change is due to the fact that the tilt of the Earth's axis is constant and always points towards a hypothetical point in space. the Sun will be overhead in the southern hemisphere and the northern hemisphere will be cold. with the light of the Sun falling directly on to the northern hemisphere at an angle of 23.444475 degree to the Equator. '9). which is more convenient and not open to errors. using my method of reckoning by time. having by then gained 1. The times elapsed between the four seasons are not all equal. T1 shows the position of the Earth on June 21st.It then turns northwards again until it reaches the Equator again at the next vernal equinox. Let us study the movement of the Earth with the aid of a diagram (a simplified version of this is given in Fig. (This tilt is illustrated by the angle of the brackets that support the globe in the diagram. At position T3 on December 22nd.898 seconds. both bodies remain in the same plane. It is thus obvious that the four seasons are not caused by either the Earth or the Sun moving up or down in the plane of the ecliptic. its elevation varying with the ascending and descending nodes of its movement. As the Earth continues to move round its orbit in a horizontal plane (not a vertical one as shown in the diagram for ease of illustration). viz: . or 20 minutes 23 seconds.) The third point we must now study is the eccentricity of the Earth's orbit. From this your astronomers concluded that the Sun has an annual movement of its own on the ecliptic. FIG. We can do this by noting the exact time of the four seasons of the year. the Sun will be directly over the Equator on September 23rd (position T3).

This works out as follows: 133611 X 4 ______________ = 85.611 minutes.223 seconds gained between the two successive vernal equinoxes has not been subtracted from these figures. The 1.195 minutes. We now convert these four periods into four radii of time. the seasons being taken as sidereal time.(Times given below are for 1957-58. With the aid of these four sets of figures we can work out the orbit of the Earth (see Fig. . Summer Solstice to Autumnal Equinox (September 23rd): 134.832 minutes.331 minutes. Winter Solstice to Vernal Equinox: 128.059 minutes.836 minutes. 2 (4) 128195 X 4 = 81. 20). which we have substituted for earlier figures. 2 129331 X 4 <3) ____________ = 82.

but after this latter date. The period between March 21st and September 23rd is more or less regular.444475 degrees.2619" annually. viz: Sidereal year = 31.2619" in the direction of the tilt of the Earth's axis corresponds to 1.000). Q: But why does the direction of the tilt change? A: Patience! We shall get to that in a minute. This change in the direction of the axis causes the Earth to loose one sidereal day every 70.784.926 seconds ____________________ . but the direction in which the axis points changes by 50. The fourth point to note is that the 1.401 years.2619) and dividing this by the number of seconds of arc in 360 degree (1. The change of 50. The reason for this precession is as follows: The direction of the tilt of the Earth's axis.223 seconds gained between the two vernal equinoxes must have been accruing over the whole period of this uneven movement through space. then.I4 1/2) by the amount of change in seconds (50. which is always in line with a hypothetical point in space. or in other words 1. Furthermore.93 years. gives us the Earth's orbit.223.223 seconds of time.556. This figure is obtained by multiplying the number of seconds in a sidereal year (31.898 seconds every year. and this is precisely the difference between the sidereal and tropical years. During this period the Earth moves slowly in towards the Sun.This.296. changes very slowly all the time the Earth is revolving in its orbit. The tilt of the axis remains constant at 23. the orbit looks as though it has been pressed in towards the centre by some force.149 seconds Tropical year = 31. it can be calculated from this that one sidereal year is lost every 25.558. and not all at once.558.

With these data we can now ascertain the true orbit of the Earth by a different method to yours.164). A difference of 04" in the Sun's position would amount to 0. 293.but at both these times the Sun is at a slight angle.2619 is the figure relative to axial rotation and 0.2619" variation in the direction of axial tilt in 1. The resultant refraction introduces an element of error into the calculation.223 seconds.534. its true velocity must be 29. which means there are over sixty-two periods of rotation for every one of revolution.2619" _______________ or 62.82737 times its axial speed of rotation. Do you follow? Now we have previously obtained the true speed of the Earth's axial rotation (465. a difference of 0.Difference 1. So 50. Therefore if the Earth's velocity in orbit is 62. by multiplying the speed by the number of seconds in a sidereal year. but your calculations are based on a number of doubtful factors. which in turn amounts to 0.8" across the whole diameter of the orbit. but in the method we use there is no room for error..8" Do you now see why the Earth's revolution is 62.760 km.2619".82737: I. 0. its radius is therefore 146.8 to orbital revolution. since the Sun lies at the centre of the orbit. Q: The figures arrived at by this method are not the same as those obtained by our methods.8" at a point on the opposite side of the Earth's orbit.466 km.223 seconds. per second) by dividing 2 PI*r by the number of seconds in a sidereal day (86.766. A: That is true. i. With this we can now proceed to work out the exact length of the orbit. From this we can see that the relationship between the variation in the axial rotation and the orbital revolution of the Earth is: 50.4" variation in the Sun's elevation.221'135 m. . This figure then is the difference in the elevation of the Sun every time the direction of the tilt varies by 50. One of the methods you use is to measure the diameter of the Sun at aphelion and again at perihelion. that is the same amount of time that its revolution in orbit takes to balance out the 0.4'.82737 times greater than its axial rotation? The Earth makes up for the precession that is brought about by the 50. This gives us a figure of 922. At the time of the summer solstice the Sun climbs at zenith to 23 degrees 26' 494" but at the time of the winter solstice it climbs to 23 degrees 26' 498" in the southern hemisphere. Dividing this figure by PI we get the diameter of the orbit.102 m.e. so that its light has to traverse a greater amount of atmosphere.164. per second.946 km.

946km. we should be able to work out the speed of light. I just did it to show you that I know enough about the subject to correct your figures.135 m.To go back to the diagram giving the times of the seasons (Fig. viz: 29.446 km. the Earth will cover these 2O.565.e.221135 km. i. per second./second _________________ or Speed of light 293.296. per second.494.443 .225 km.229 km.13O. which converted into distance on the Earth's orbit is: 922.47" ____________ = 14. X 20. 1. we can now convert these minutes into kilometres by multiplying them with the Earth's velocity in orbit (29.351 km. The fact that we were apparently able to deduce the speed of light from the data that gave us the velocity in orbit is purely coincidental. O. With a velocity in orbit of 29. We shall then see that the Earth's closest distance to the Sun is 143.47 in 9969 seconds.130702 km.221. with the Earth's true velocity in orbit. this figure would be doubled.164./second Or in other words the time taken for light to traverse the diameter of the Earth's orbit is: Diameter of orbit 294.9 seconds 29. ______________ = 996.47" annually. per second). and its farthest 150.534.229 km. . 20).086.221135 km. then. Well.O0O099242 Alternatively we could work it out from the length of the Earth's orbit: The aberration of light is 2O.443.221135 km.0OO" In relation to a point on the opposite side of the orbit.633 km.7O2 km. ______________ = 294. All this would be very interesting if it were true. 29. viz: 29.

there should be a time difference of 996. but if we accept this then light from a greater distance taking more time to reach us should show a greater aberration. but this does not happen either. on seeing the two figures tally. and based his theory on that. The 20. until at infinity they would appear to us to be stationary.Q: Well. can observe an aberration in the light of the stars? A: That is simple my friend. But in any case.9 ______ seconds. The apparent speed of the stars' movement depends on the distance we are from them. but it does not. Light does not contribute anything to this phenomenon. or the angle at which we see them. why is it that one. ie 498 seconds 2 every time the Earth moves through 180 degrees of its orbit The Planets should also show a similar aberration. one gets the impression that all things exterior to the vehicle are in motion. and why the direction of its axial . if Bradley's system is incorrect.47" of aberration corresponds to the diameter of the Earth's orbit. we perceive it before its light reaches us. I do not wish to imply that light moves instantaneously. If one sees a star rising in the sky. Distant objects appear to move at a slower pace. I would. but only that sight is independent of light. even at that short distance.223 seconds before the completion of a sidereal year.000 km. in our senses and not in light itself: As the Earth approaches or recedes from the Sun. in spite of the fact that some are more distant than others. he jumped to the wrong conclusion. Q: At least I find your various methods of calculating the Earth's orbit convincing. If this were the case all their movements would appear to us to be advanced or retarded. however. be obliged if you would explain why the Earth reaches the point of Aries 1. then the light from the Sun should show the same degree of aberration. in consequence. following a more or less elliptical course. or alternatively a decrease as we moved away. the stars will appear to follow this movement on a smaller scale. we would then get ourselves into the absurd position of seeing events happening before they actually took place. per second in accordance with Roemer's theory. and as we drew closer to a planet there would be an apparent increase in its speed of rotation. It must not be forgotten that all stars show the same amount of aberration. whereas the vehicle itself appears to be stationary. As this figure works out at about one-thousandth part of the diameter of the Earth's orbit. You might contend that the Sun is very close to us. Whenever one travels in a vehicle of any kind. any aberration there may be lies. If there were no relationship between distance and the aberration. then. Bradley's mistake was that he assumed light to have a speed of 300.

As the Equator of the Earth lies at an angle of 23 degrees to the Sun. There certainly is a reason. Since it contains the greater land mass. Now this whole retrograde spiral itself moves in a circle through space. in common with the whole of the solar system. Note the inversion of the movements. takes a spiral course through space. But strictly speaking there is no such thing as a precession of 1. the retrograde movement of the Earth will cause the light of the Sun to reach the Equator 1.223 seconds prior to the completion of the sidereal year. The imaginary line that the spiral movement describes in space lies at right angles to the inclination. There must be some reason for it.2619" on this spiral. 21). The Earth. this in . I will illustrate this with the aid of a diagram (Fig. but rather the direction the spiral follows.93 years to complete a whole cycle. to be exact 1. The annual rate of precession is 50. the Earth revolving in one direction makes a spiral in the opposite direction. This tendency throws one pole to the outside of the spiral track and pulls the other to the inside of it. or a tendency of the poles to move under the unbalanced action of the differing centrifugal force at the two poles. means it takes the Earth 25.223 seconds before the Earth itself crosses this circumference. So the annual precession is not strictly speaking a displacement. This is a retrograde spiral movement. I will explain.784. whereas the South Pole. A.inclination changes by 50. with the lesser land mass. and at the end of every year it cuts across the circumference of this circle slightly earlier than in the preceding year.2619" annually. It is an effect that can be explained when one knows more about it. with the Sun at its centre. moves to the inside of the track. the North Pole is thrown slightly off balance by the resultant centrifugal force and moves to the outside of the spiral track.223 seconds.

Q: Why will these new lands emerge. It is the Earth's rotation that creates the centrifugal force that forms the continents. A:I have already told you that a planet is a delicate organism. giving rise to very different conditions to those now prevailing. then it could happen . The present course of ocean currents will also be changed. The emergence of these new land masses will change the level of the oceans. The present angle of 23 degree is responsible for the existence of the land masses in the northern hemisphere. All the atomic tests are carried out in so that. This reduction in the mass at one pole will affect the amount of centrifugal force developed. even the biological conditions of life can be affected. and many lands tell you how this could Pole. thus bringing about a reduction in the mass at the North Pole. When this happens land will emerge from the Pacific Ocean. Some continents will re-appear the north of Russia. as atomic dust. The water from the melting ice-cap will distribute itself throughout the oceans. The mean level of the continents will be slightly lower. but it could happen. known on the North Pole rather than the South. and from the North and South Atlantic. but there will be no general cataclysm. thus altering the inclination of the Earth's axis. settle It is well known that radio activity repels magnetism. is covered with the northern hemisphere. if the angle of inclination is altered. and this in turn will cause the ice-cap to melt. The North Pole. causing flooding in the lowlying countries.turn causes the Equator to alter its position in relation to the Sun. Q:This means that there is no actual annual variation in the axial inclination? A: At the moment there is not. Greenland and the north of Canada will disappear. I will happen again. until the proper balance is restored. One change brings a number of others in its wake. like the South ice. would it not? A: The process would be slow until the North Pole reaches a high enough temperature to cause a widespread thaw. without any alteration in the angle of the axial inclination itself. the like of which you have never witnessed in modern times. Q: This would only come about very gradually. It has happened in the course of the Earth's vanished to the bottom of the oceans. then land masses will appear in other places. so that the atomic fall-out at the North Pole will cause a rise in temperature owing to the influence of the magnetic field there. all the radioactive elements. and that would be a catastrophe. history. The change in the mass at the North Pole will cause a reduction in the angle of inclination of the Earth's axis.

then stop letting off bombs in the northern hemisphere be reasonable at least! But let us get back to our subject. Now pay careful attention to this: The Earth moves counterclockwise. a complete calendar year is lost. for lack of a better word we could call these "island universes. I would like to' . Millions of galaxies put together would only make a tiny island in the Universe. I believe it could happen sometime between 1968 and 1972. just as a day is lost every time the Earth completes a revolution in orbit which you reckon as 365 days long instead of 366. The Earth loses a year every time it completes a cycle of this spiral. The only advice I can give you. which moves in the same direction as the Earth. which is looked upon as the centre of the system. This great spiral that the Earth describes is not only responsible for the 1. in common with the planets. I showed you how the Earth. Q: I do not quite understand. this latter is in turn the result of the movement of the galaxy. When the cycle of the spiral movement is completed every 25. A positive is cancelled out by a negative. we feel we are somewhat behind hand in this matter. is that you should at least try to balance off the radioactivity at the poles. describes a retrograde spiral movement in space. This is another illustration of the polarity that is to be found everywhere in the Universe. itself revolves around a magnetic centre. you were talking about galactic time. They.223 seconds difference between the tropical and sidereal years. the spiral is clockwise. Even the Sun. two in one direction and one in another. Cities will fall in ruins and great cracks will appear in the surface of the Earth. so that there is an equal thaw at both the South and the North Poles." and these are only part of the Universe as a whole. including the Sun. It will be brought home to you by a tremendous earthquake that will shake the Earth to its foundations. or that the ocean currents are beginning to change their course. this will prevent any undue unbalance in the mass and the Earth's spiral movement will remain unaffected. but as the time involved is very great. which implies time based on the movement of galaxies-is this not Universal time? A: No. Thus we get three different movements within the galaxy. and this centre also has a spiral movement of its own which corresponds to the movement of the planets. it is almost imperceptible to you.784 years. but it also affects every other body in the system. after some study. We take our measurement of time from this movement of our galaxy in relation to the movement of other galaxies. A movement in one direction gives rise to another in the opposite. The effects will be catastrophic. rotating anticlockwise. However. or in other words it loses one day in every seventy years. The movement of the galaxy in its turn affects the movement of a night. The galaxies are not the Universe. in the strict sense of the word. have their own movements of rotation and revolution in space and in Universal time. and we have come to the conclusion. If you notice that the oceans of the northern hemisphere are getting warmer than usual. that it should be possible to change this system to Universal time which would be more exact.

and the Earth would appear to be moving the faster of the two." The nebulae that make up an "island universe" do not move away from one another. Nebula N3 will also appear to be flying away. making for the place where they know they have to . and only meet again at the end of their life cycle. The apparent speed of the nebulae depends on the positions they occupy in their respective orbits at the time as well as on the observer's angle of sight. They behave like a herd of elephants. it has not been possible to plot their actual orbits in space.define at this point the term "Flight of Nebulae. and the type of electric charge they carry. From a distance they would appear to be moving away from one another (Fig. he would be under the impression that they were flying away from one another. in an anti-clockwise direction. even though they are moving in the same direction. all moving in a common orbit. This is the explanation of the optical illusion that Earth's physicists have observed. What you regard as the flight of nebulae is nothing more than an optical illusion. it is the "island universes" themselves that move away from one another. they move away from one another. One can see that the nebulae N1 and N3. Similarly. whereas Nebula N4 will appear to be getting closer. As the orbits of nebulae in space are too vast and the time they take to complete a revolution in their orbit too long for measurement by ordinary optical instruments. the real movement that takes place between the "island universes" themselves could never be measured on your instruments. They all end up in the same place in the end in the graveyard of the Infinite. will appear to an outside observer to be going in opposite directions. there is an actual flight of the small island universes. As soon as they come into being. Let us imagine four nebulae in the form of spheres. Spectrographic observation of the nebulae would also give the same result. if an observer a long way outside our solar system were to observe a conjunction of the Earth and Jupiter. However.22). due to the pressure of their radiation.

and many of the things that I have told you may be wrong. is itself only an island within the Infinite. and to get away from each other. Q: I have only one more question for today: if the axial tilt of the Earth is reduced. It will not be Russia alone that suffers. and the north of Russia will sink. which I mistakenly designated as "the Universe as a whole. Some things are so subtle that man will only be able to understand them when a higher Power endows him with a brain that can cope with such vast concepts without blacking out. there to meet their brothers: they still try to repel each other. At the command "Talima Cumi" the universes stream forth again. In their dying hour Nature forces them into a final embrace. old. as the drop of water marks the limit of its consciousness. then destroys them to re-create them." all forming part of a common system. the northern sea will join up with the Caspian. and the remainder of her territory will be rocked by terrible earthquakes." due to a limitation of my mind. There will be a general fall in the level of all the land in the northern hemisphere. each one following its own divergent path to the limits of space. There are things in the Universe that I would not dare to probe. and a general raising in the southern hemisphere. if this happened life would be completely extinguished. a drop of water must appear infinite. We shall never know their full number. Russia.die. As yet I know nothing. whose voice brings worlds into being. They are all born in the same cradle. and it could not even conceive of the Earth that sustained it. In a sense the amoeba would be right. Low-lying countries will be totally flooded. Our Universe. yet there must be countless other universes that we knew nothing of. what more are we and our little world than the amoeba in its drop of water. and then their radiation and electric charge came them to separate out and to gather momentum. but not the limit of life. as though it were some mysterious song. and they pass away like minor gods in an ocean of blazing light. because life is infinite. perhaps little more than one of the grains of sand that desert winds carry to far off places. We know of the existence of a number of" island universes. It is getting late for you. I know that the Universal Life has an enchantment beyond words. but they no longer have the strength to do so. Q: Could the tilt of the Earth's axis disappear altogether? A: No. After countless ages they eventually reach the end of their journey. In relation to the Infinite. sung by some immortal Being. nor whither they are going. To an amoeba. exhausted. coming together again at the opposite pole of the Universe. Most of the steppes will vanish for ever. to be more explicit. we do not know where the winds come from. If the centrifugal force were evenly distributed over all points of the . and it is time we took leave of one another. The unbalance of the mass will cause a new continent to rise out of the Pacific Ocean. which places will suffer most as a result? A: The continent in the Northern hemisphere with the greatest land mass. But I cannot tell you everything about this life cycle.

and then the waters covered the planet. Then later there was another sudden change in the inclination. . Many species of fauna vanished when the radioactivity ceased. These may be marine animals or even mammals. and this movement can be upset if man inadvertently puts his finger in the gears. True human happiness must rest on the understanding that it is God's will that man's destiny should be a glorious one. as the radioactivity decreased. The savage in his habitat lives peacefully in spite of his poverty and ignorance. reacting against the magnetic field of the Earth at the poles. you will quite shortly see that the so-called antediluvian species will appear in various parts of the world. Neither worldly possessions nor knowledge can ensure a man s happiness. so that the ensuing centrifugal force raised the continents from out of the waters. In order that life should flourish on Earth. the Creator caused the axis to tilt. and this radioactivity. Knowledge is not an attribute of animals and yet they are happy as God made them. They are remembered as individuals who thought they knew everything. Now that you have decided to make the Earth radioactive. and in their arrogance felt superior to other men. but were deceived and did not even know themselves. Then. in obedience with the laws of the Creator and in love for his fellows.globe. and their theories were subsequently disproved. In the beginning the axis of the Earth was at right angles to its plane of rotation. Radioactive dust has the same effect on the planet as a grain of sand that some cheeky child puts into his father's watch. In a game of cards it is easier for an onlooker to see what should be played than it is for the players. Your views would obviously be unbiased. and think that material progress is the magic word which makes water spring from a rock. caused them to heat up. if he has no dominion over his own heart? Many scientists placed themselves above the world. for no apparent reason. MAN'S WASTED EFFORTS Q: Can you please tell us what you think of us. and give us some idea of our weak points. and other land appeared elsewhere. and the Earth tilted on its axis. Of what avail are all his possessions and all his knowledge. and they may well reappear and populate the Earth with their kind once again. the bed of the sea would be on the same level as the continents. his dominion over the forces of Nature. He would probably not exchange his discomforts and lack of knowledge for all the erudition of the scientist taking part in scientific discussions. But they died. At that time there was a high degree of radioactivity around the planet. and all the existing land masses would vanish below the waters. The reason for this is that the movement of the Earth in space determines the biological life of the planet. and some of the land that had risen out of the waters disappeared once more under the waves. In what direction should we progress to achieve happiness? A: You want to be happy. the poles cooled off again.

Florence Nightingale. And yet he was not a learned man. John the Baptist. Did riches bring happiness in such cases? A rich man may send his son to university to return a few years later with his diplomas. He fears the day to come instead of helping the future and preparing its way. for instance. uses up brainpower. Paper. ink. and which they may never come to hear about. Rather than teaching recitation. However. books. Q: I realise that righteousness is superior to everything.Others became famous though the possession of worldly goods. rather than the declension of an ancient language. all to teach dead languages which should have been buried long ago. and not the cause. A: Nobody can divorce progress from its moral aspect. He expends an enormous amount of energy on things that cannot help him. what the principal mistakes in our methods are. it would be better to show them how to grow onions and . I will outline them to you: Humanity's great failing is never being able to walk without its eyes glued to the road it has already covered. chalk and a thousand other things that could be put to a better use are used in teaching useless things. but I would like to know. But since you wish to know of the effects. They died happily having lived happily. There is a multitude of things which children never hear about. why not teach the functioning of photosynthesis. and priests immoral? I maintain that a hungry father with a virtuous son would be happier than a rich father with a thieving or murderous son. Francis of Assisi lived at so high a level that the scientists who designed the atomic bomb could not even hope to touch the soles of his feet. maintains buildings. yet they could not prevent their sons becoming thieves or murderers. but death destroyed their dominion and at the last moment they felt unhappier than anyone when they saw that they had lived in illusion. excluding any ethical considerations. and try to resuscitate the past. and wastes precious time on futile things. Mary of Nazareth. teachers' and pupils' time. he wastes money. Without doubt St. the light of their love illuminating the lives of many. from our material point of view. Nobody dies happily with science and money alone. Rather than look into a most promising future. still live on as true individuals. but can a diploma make a person good? Cannot lawyers also be thieves. and doctors murderers. There are men of great riches on Earth. Instead of a dead language. Man is basically conservative and prefers to live in the memory of times that can never return rather than in the hope of a radiant future. It would be more worth while to know the meaning of potential gradient. they prefer to live among the mummies of history. it has thus become a pillar of salt like Lot's wife. or the functions of the body. and how they might adversely affect our future. those who showed their wisdom through love still live in men's hearts.

instead of France. they should learn more about the functions of nitrogen. into usable energy by passing it though a coal gas which unites with water to form formaldehyde. that sex is thus a defence mechanism of the body. and that these hormones should not be wasted for the mere satisfaction of instincts. viscose. textiles. and that they. whereas schools teach children the colours of national flags. xylose. and that caesium has the ability to strip it of an electron making it into ordinary innocuous hydrogen. cellulose. among others. I cannot . should learn rhetoric and dissertation at school. Brazil. U. manganese and phosphorus. make up the anti-cancerous elements normally contained in the liver. not having discovered a cure for tuberculosis. how to correct acidity. acetic acid. linked to caesium molecules. cobalt. Children can forget the names of those who brought devastation to humanity. statistically. Millions of individuals die of cancer. Tell them that these same proteins. Instead of sounding praises to the destructive power of an invader show them that heavy hydrogen is one of the main causes of cancer when it gets into a cell... that cancer generally affects children who have not yet reached fertility. can also be used for making vegetable oil. and that the oxidised aldehyde can turn sunlight into electric current.A. It surprises me that humanity. soap.celery. But all the above put together are not as serious as humanity's main fault: the dispersal of his forces to an alarming degree. These things should be pastimes for people who do not have diseases to worry about that bring misery to millions of people.S. Teach them that instead of drinks it would be preferable to take an extract of liver with enzymes. Show them. what soil requires in the way of nitrogen. It is as though 'someone in mortal agony should begin to study the metre of Alexandrine verses. virtually without loss. Show them that vegetable hormones can produce cabbage leaves ten feet high. phosphorus. sulphur and iron. since these elements cause cancer to recede. produce proteins. teaching them that these elements.S.R. or old people who have passed it. in turn. alcohol. syrup. offending the innate gregarious instinct of man which intuitively abhors the artificial barriers which economic power has erected in the world. and that the stalks and leaves from which all these things are made should never be buried because they are unsuitable as fertiliser and are carriers of crop diseases. besides providing good food. and apples weighing several pounds. caesium. Teach them rather the meaning of the hydrogenous potential of the soil. etc.S. when linked to cobalt molecules. or teach them that wheat. combat anaemia and are known as vitamin B.. sulphur. There is far greater beauty to be found in the saturation point of a solution than there is in the story of the destruction of Carthage." they should learn more about caesium. fuel.12. U. Rather than dwell upon the word "China. but they should never forget that it is possible to transform the light of the Sun.

machines for producing energy. We would also have to be sure that this agriculture is productive in the true sense of the word. prisoners and the unemployed. nitrogen plant. even supposing that all the men were productive. estate agents. air force. stockings which offer no protection. growing tobacco and stimulants. shoes which hurt the feet and ruin the carriage. alcoholic drinks and other stimulants. In the latter figure one must include the retired and the unproductive. fertilisers. many work against the better interests of society. in a sense. and that the industries are the ones that the country really needs. stockbrokers. electronic stoves. Factories are by no means always built to solve fundamental problems. Of the million or so who take part in agriculture. munitions. But let us leave aside all this wasted effort and see how you make use of the work of these 2 million men who are at least doing . There are about 50 million people in Brazil. footballs. jewels. surgical and orthopaedic instruments. pistols and sporting guns.quote the exact statistics for the world. A large proportion of work is in unproductive. the blind. About 30 million of these are children too young to take part in the productive life of the country. chewing gum. useless trinkets for women. nail varnish. army. thieves. advertising men. magistrature. beggars. speculative undertakings. we would still only have 2 million out of a total of 50 million. lungs getting rid of carbon dioxide from the central organism. Others are employed in the police. There is nothing wrong with factories. prospecting instruments. retailers. In any case. insecticides. This leaves barely a million productive men employed in agriculture and industry. lawyers. so that the others can maintain their standard of living. or even for your country. concentrated foodstuffs for distressed populations. which is absurd when we consider that this individual who does the work for the other twenty-five generally does so without mechanical aids. lunatics. by the sweat of his brow. We could say almost the same for those employed in industry. or are engaged in the fattening up of animals which impoverish the land and subsequently poison man with their meat. synthetic vegetable hormones. medicaments. But man does little to put them to proper use. yet there are countless useful and necessary things which could be mass produced. mechanical harvesters and sowers. endless handbags. cigars to poison the body. philosophical and scientific books. ridiculous hats. which leaves 10 million men. one man working for every twenty-five people. another 10 million are women. but we can make an approximation. plastic shoes. novelties. diplomatic and civil service. bankers. prefabricated houses. consumptives. such as building material. etc. navy. etc. invalids. their chimneys are. lepers. The great majority are engaged in making cosmetics. such as wholesalers. that is to say. indestructible furniture.

If a people waste their productivity on bad things. Yet even the manual labour that men do today could be done by obedient and indefatigable electronic brains. men will die of hunger owing to unemployment. and to fully enjoy the liberty which Nature gives instinctingly. shelter. transportation.something. prune and reap. What about State expenditure? Have you checked the amount of money spent on local governments. and about 1. It is the necessity of having a policed state that Rousseau spoke of. schools. If there is a robbery. Is a police force necessary? Yes. spread insecticide and fertilisers. If they sensed an ailing plant. and to ruthlessness. These "robots" could plough. etc. the traffic that now blocks the roads in the rush hour would disappear. horses should be given balanced rations and covered with good woollen blankets. government expenditure. sanitation. it is only because men have made it indispensable. The waste of fuel under the present system is alarming. The small remainder is used for beneficial purposes. Of this sum. but because he feels robbed by society which denied him the right to have his own house.5 billion cruzeiros. hospitals. the voracity of financiers. Man could work less than a year in his whole life. It is ironical that in a society in which its people can suffer from hunger and cold. with certain exceptions. it is not. medicaments. oil. Cars. it is necessary. no one would think of killing or robbing. sow. Human passions are stirred up by money because money gives rise to arguments. etc? How many police are there in your State alone? The expenditure on horses alone which are kept for parades would go a long way to feeding and sheltering the hungry who walk the streets in the heat and in the rain.25 billion on civil service. official journeys.25 billion are spent on the armed forces. even progress is dangerous. etc. The annual budget estimates for your country must be somewhere about 6. to profit. But for human society. such as education. state loans. The avid desire for profit and business create a demand for petrol. If there were an abundance. etc. Even then everything is not covered by the federal budget. research institutes. new industries. banquets. because the thief enjoys the crime. are usually driven by one person till the land without paying rent. public health and agriculture. and yet live better than the richest man on Earth. If the structure of society were changed. they would be able to . the judiciary. But if it is necessary. Imagine if all this money were ploughed into the construction of roads. police. in the majority of cases. misery results from their irresponsibility. If automation is developed. leading to economy in both fuel and vehicles. tyres. churches. about 4. public service. which could carry several people. whereas the person who is working has no means of transport. Imagine if this vast number of non-productive people were to be diverted into new productive enterprises. housing schemes. is merely amusing himself. foreign ministry. electoral machinery.

However. the whole of human knowledge could be transmitted in a very short time. or a combination of chloroform and morphia. and it would not bore a child with long lectures. they are chagrined to find that they have learned nothing. and at the end of this. The spirit pays no heed to the concepts of time and space. Further. They could be used to measure metabolism and act as doctors supplying restorative energy.judge whether it should be treated or whether it constituted a danger for other plants and should be uprooted. administered at intervals with a psychologist at hand to dictate all the material to be learned. you could do away with cancer. Electric cells could be placed in streets to absorb all irritating noises. sleep and come back with a scientific degree in their pockets. These "robots' could be developed to a point where they would be able to drive vehicles automatically without danger of collision or accident. Education could be changed. It would be easier. Pupils could go to college early. and cheaper. For less than the amount of money that is spent. and still have a long way to go. and saving crops. It would be sufficient to put a child into a controlled hypnotic sleep. poring over books. with the help of a drug such as canabissativa. Human thought waves work on a band of about 5mm wavelength. Naturally. In a few hours a child could master a whole subject which at present takes the better part of its youth to master. Today most people spend the best part of their lives. more convenient. it would not be subject to the shortcomings of the teachers. Control of the atmosphere could regulate the climate avoiding natural catastrophes. from the age of seven until about thirty. for a tenth of the money spent on drinks you can banish leprosy from the face of the Earth. on smoking every year. he would do so with great accuracy. the whole scope of education could be changed. an eternity can be condensed into a second. A lifetime is too short to learn everything. informing base about any possible defects. and taking steps to repair them in full flight. and tuberculosis would no longer be a subject for statistics. One could create the system of rapid transmission. any radical change would involve the dismissal of teachers which in the present world situation would mean that they would suffer serious privation. This could be carried out on a large scale with thousands of pupils at once. Do you think this is too short a time to learn so much? Surely a teacher would not be able to dictate enough in that time. they could pilot planes with safety. or a second can be made into an eternity. . If electrical messages were sent within this band in successive waves. and other disadvantages of the present system. making use of headphones. using hypnosis in a truly scientific spirit.

and the spirit. In hypnotic sleep the mind becomes receptive and ready to learn and profit by sound teaching.The same method could be used to do away with atavistic tendencies and criminal tendencies. as there is a risk of the concept of time disappearing from the mind altogether. Death is therefore a defect which can be overcome. He did not live longer because the Flood swallowed him up. by the hypnotic process and reintegrated into society. Prisons could be emptied. several to the square inch. the represents the iron core. . society would overcome the moral prejudices which dog its steps. but he could get as far as making Methuselah envious. only lines of force. However. falling again into the restored magnetic field. one needs to know the fundamentals of life. in the first place by deleting criminal tendencies from the human mind so that no further malefactors would come into being. and is bound magnetically to the body. I do not mean to say that man could live eternally. or if the electric current which feeds it stops flowing. the forces of Nature. one would use human or vegetable ectoplasm which would cure the injured part. Once it has attracted the iron. The current flowing through a solenoid gives rise to a magnetic field which draws the iron core into the coil. No visible bond is holding it. the field would be restored. this would require considerable technique which could only be mastered in time. Man would overcome death and old age would no longer exist on Earth. but if mankind were good. instead of destroying man would continue to preserve his life. then the spirit is freed. or its lines of force broken. relationship between spirit and the body is similar to that the solenoid and the iron core. the solenoid can be turned in any direction without the core falling out. One could go further and break down the barrier between the conscious and the subconscious. The body corresponds to the and its current can be measured with an encephalograph. With its framework changed. which are not visible to the naked eye. thousand The between solenoid spirit If the magnetic field made by the body is interrupted. if the lesion which gave rise to the interruption could be cured by suitable apparatus. if we called it back. Any field must have a centre to act as a vehide for the lines of force which it generates. For this. However. and in the second because those with criminal tendencies already would be re-educated. would return and unite with matter. It is the spirit which gives life to the body. Q: How do we overcome death? A: In order to overcome death. This is death.

when used sparingly and for peaceful ends. You are. he turns it to filth that pollutes the world. all that he touched was turned to gold. If you do not destroy the globe with hydrogen bombs. yet it is used to rain destruction on cities. If he touches the pure gold which God offers him. mankind is a Croesus in reverse. nuclear fusion. One day the end will come. still beginners in this vast subject. The Atomic Danger Q: Please tell me why you think our use of atomic energy is dangerous? A: I do not say that the use of atomic energy is a danger to humanity. Dynamite can also be put to peaceful uses. has not even dreamed of. exploring avenues which science. but it is also used in weapons of war. . In the story of Croesus. when you discover the magnetic effects of the planets. you will do so by other more powerful means. Soon you will use hydrogen. runs factories. The last chapter of atomic energy has not yet been written neither on Earth nor in any other part of the Universe. You got what you asked for. as means of destruction. etc. and then gamma rays.I have told you what I think from the material point of view. Aviation represents a step forward on the road to peace. then. Its wanton use and its application to war could mean the complete and utter extinction of the life as we know it today on this planet. as it turns motors. orphaning thousands of innocent children who know nothing of the commercial interests of the potentates of Earth. be written by anyone because it has no end. If nothing else. but I could tell you much more from the spiritual point of view. You showed a preference for the material point of view. Put a monkey in a laboratory and see what happens. in fact. mining. What I do say is that aggressive hatred coupled with atomic energy will destroy the earth.. bringing death to many homes. making canals. It depends which you choose. and in fact supplies. Electrical energy is useful to man. There are two sides to every picture. Atomic energy is a gift of God. you will destroy everything. breaking up rocks. up to the present. It cannot. produces abundant light. and the brotherhood of man. Yet it is also used m electric chairs to take another's life. all the requirements of modem life.

but I implied the material aspect too. Q: What is its effect upon the material order of things? A: In a short time you will have hydrogen bombs of devastating power. how much more harm can be done by an increase in radioactivity directly injected into the heart of Earth by hydrogen bombs? Solar disturbances are periodic and their effects soon disappear because they are the result of waves. the atmospheric layers will be changed. The use of hydrogen bombs will unleash the horsemen of the Apocalypse. etc. They will then cease to produce light and affect the luminosity of the Sun. The seas will be poisoned and the fish will die. whose natural equilibrium cannot be upset with impunity. This excess radioactivity begins by influencing men's brains. They will no longer be able to filter the solar emanations and the Sun will turn black and you will experience indescribable sensations. Water will be contaminated at its source. because atomic dust remains in suspension and takes time to fall. If a slight increase in solar activity disturbs life on Earth.. Hertzian waves. A: I meant both. climate. The moral aspect is obvious. who were designated for that day and hour. Soon you will see madness range over the Earth. A planet is a delicate organism. At other times he shows himself to be a fool.The people of Earth have two roads ahead: life or death. but radioactivity produced by hydrogen bombs has a lasting effect. men and animals. except when used for warlike purposes? In that case. but not inherently harmful. consequently. when he becomes good and is endowed with intelligence. Elements now unknown will appear and poison the vegetation and. One must often admire man's acts of generosity. its effect can only be harmful from the moral point of view. May they make a wise choice! Q: Do you mean to say that atomic energy is good. While in suspension it damages the higher layers. Remember I told you that in the upper regions of the atmosphere physiochemical reactions take place which prevent the penetration of rays from the Sun. It will be then that Earth's people discover how wrong was the theory based on the fixed speed of light . Showers of particles will fall to Earth and the crops will perish. Moreover. These layers not only filter radioactivity. when it falls it poisons everything. upsetting them noticeably. There will be Dantesque scenes. because it will fall from radioactive clouds. Upon their composition depends the stability of the planet. changing human beings. but also maintain the Earth in space.

In twenty years there will be a difference of miles per second. hospitals overflowing. If there were to be a hydrogen war. be pandemonium.3 there would rate of atomic explosions has already caused the mean Earth to increase. plague. ravaged cities. The liver is a living laboratory and on being attacked by the ingestion of radioactive elements scattered about the world. Then humanity will see whither progress without God has brought them maniacs in the streets. carries lethal poisons which will destroy its bones and bring leukaemia. The roaring of the waters will play a fearful duet with the groaning of the earth. and darkness and burning heat above. will seek death. Cancer will spread 186. Before then. but only a rusty red glow near the from terrible cold. terrorised multitudes. Earth will be subject to energy in the form of ultraviolet waves. millions destroyed by war. poisoned waters. but his flesh will be by actinic radiation. it will lose its ability to produce the elements for bodily defences. orphaned children. knowing that their milk. cemeteries full. grief. raising the level of the seas so that people in maritime cities would be struck with terror. Meanwhile. A major alteration of these would make the whole Earth tremble and its cities will collapse like a pack of cards. On Earth. the maimed everywhere. larders empty. as well as old people whose sex force is spent. cursing life and those who launched such despair upon the world. If man looks at the destroyed. Enormous waves will form on the seas. Radioactivity in the upper layers is already enough to melt the polar caps and flood low-lying cities. compressed violently by the solar energy. energy. contaminated fields. The present heat of the rate of 0. all the ice of the poles will have melted. a quaking earth below. in spite of this intense solar light. Nursing mothers will weep with sorrow. and it will continue to do so at the degree C. people in anguish. Leukaemia will destroy children who have not reached puberty. which should nourish the child. blasphemy. . in the heavens the cosmic laws upset. Many. Ghastly pestilence will attack the skin and the eyes and there would be no cure. Strange diseases will appear. Man will suffer burned as with a hot iron Sun. desolation. there will be no ground. with speeds of millions of miles per second. terror. each year. unable to withstand such suffering. his eyes will be The upper layers of the atmosphere produce or prevent earthquakes. The poles will be subject to greater solar pressure and will melt.

For a rocket. There would be a hydrogen bomb in the nose of this rocket. needs to climb to heights where only pure hydrogen exists. but there will be nothing to eat. Men will think they are safely leading a normal life. in this radioactive state. for having sown all these years. causing disease? A: The radioactive elements will cause changes in proteins and these will attack the liver. man will suffer from terrible hunger. it will upset the balance . atomic reactions are subject to different laws.. because the ears of science are ripening already. shall be burned up. arsenals to destroy Earth at one blow. Then the great danger will threaten. others will 'have an uncontrollable sexual desire. in the upper layers of the atmosphere. Phosphorus. stabbing the Earth and murdering its inhabitants. and lead mankind on the road to peace? Will you not yet see that only love can uplift man to reach eternity? But this is not all. to get from one continent to another. Radioactive aluminium and magnesium will influence the sex-glands. the Earth ~o.Will you not understand that only spiritual progress linked to God can be of any value. Magnetic fields are weaker and the bomb more easily triggered off. will reach motor nerve centres and radioactive iodine will work its way into the main glands of the body. when a madman presses the button. If the activity of the thyroid is impaired. In a moment. destroy the blood cells. would be fulfilled: "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night. Q: What are the elements which will bring about changes in the liver. The day will come when armies will lose their raison d'dtre.. Men will destroy themselves by pressing buttons. The great mass of pure hydrogen in the upper regions and the whole earth would be transformed into a blazing inferno. Man. The critical mass and the critical distance are not the same. life without God. Cobalt. which normally helps to prevent anaemia. will. because the blow would be struck by surprise. a cloud of flame could annihilate all life of Earth. written in the last chapter of his second letter. and even the most advanced air force will be obsolete. Because of the destruction of parts of the hypothalamus. the prophecy of Saint Peter. If this should happen. guided missiles will be improved. without formal declaration of hostilities. Perhaps it would be better than a slow ending. Even with a bomb working with heavy hydrogen alone. like a flash of lightning. in which the Heavens shall pass away with a great noise and the elements shall melt with fervent heat." No one will know when this day will be. navies will be useless. the homogeneous medium would ensure the sudden transformation of these layers into helium. shall shortly reap a harvest of tares. Radioactive carbon will alter the metabolism. Now. An isotope of strontium will unite with calcium and affect the bones. That would be the end. While atomic potential is being prepared in your. which is concentrated in the brain.

It is like the saturation point in chemistry. His fate is sealed. the thyroid is large and the adrenal small. we cannot . It is up to you on Earth to decide whether all this stays in the realm of possibility. seen from outside. The radioactive dust which stays in the stratosphere already gives rise to fear for the future of men. He should not imagine that he will not be called to account for lives he has sacrificed to one interest or another. Persistent radioactivity in the upper layers of the atmosphere produces the same effect. However. No one has gone high enough up from the Earth to measure and observe what is happening.with the adrenal glands. The just will not suffer for the sinner. he would want to shout from the housetops to put an end to this folly. and could observe it now. The only thing I can say is that these will be the consequences. We all expect a day of reckoning. and it happened a long time ago. Do not do as the sorcerer's apprentice did. which will either produce an excess of adrenalin or none at all. Earth is in the hands of raving lunatics. they are unbalanced enough to accuse us of lying if we tell the truth. not knowing what he was toying with. Unhappily. when we shall be called upon to account for the gifts that the Creator gave us. This only happens once. The relationship is obvious. one can keep putting drops into a liquid without anything happening. whereas in man. we ourselves could evacuate Earth and remove the worthy from it. or is it all inevitable? A: That is something I cannot answer. The good need not worry. If bomb tests continue. bringing with it increased radioactivity. but woe to him who commits it. Men are letting off bombs. If you could have known Earth's luminosity before. Q: Is all this a mere possibility. If it were so decided. If anyone could calculate the effect of two hundred hydrogen bombs upon the uppermost layer of the ionosphere. Q: What has the thyroid got to do with the adrenals? A: In the case of a tiger. you would see a difference. it is impossible to control the reaction. Let Earth's scientists explode bombs for another fifteen years and you will see the result of their madness. whose existence in the wild state depends on his ferocity. each one capable of carrying thousands of people. then. Evil must come. No one can tell him what he must do. the adrenals are twice the size of the thyroid. because God will know how to deliver them in the hour of peril. We have thousands of saucers. Man has free will. From then on. It will be too late. not realising that their effects are not always immediate. suddenly the critical point is reached and the whole solution changes. one day war will be thrust upon you. my friend.or whether you turn it into reality.

Read. There is therefore no difficulty at all about this. for at a time when Earth's people had not even attained to knowledge of mathematics. nor. I will ascend into Heaven. Then there would only be one preventive measure. sun of the morning For thou hast said in thine heart. for man to cease thinking of himself as the Lord of Creation and come down from the pedestal his vanity has put him on. However. for that matter. I will . also. can develop so great a destructive power. It would also be suicide. when we would be told whom to deliver from this hell. I am not in a position to make decisions of such magnitude. We would like to draw the attention of these people to the chapter of Isaiah which reads as follows: "How thou art fallen from Heaven O Lucifer. we were already making interplanetary voyages. Pick up your Bible. with cosmic energy for propulsion. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds. if it were decided from on high that Earth ought to be destroyed we would trust in the wisdom of this decision and carry out the orders without hesitation. We would do as Abraham did. raze this planet and leave nothing alive on its surface. if it happened suddenly. The entry of a new Sun into our system will be less dangerous than the explosion of the Earth's hydrogen cover. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. when he was ready to sacrifice his son to do the will of God. in a second. The unbalance of forces would be fatal to many. The planet would be sacrificed in the twinkling of an eye. the time could well come when someone stronger shall silence him. It would wreak havoc on several inhabited planets. We have the means and we know how to use them. Q: But could this happen? Would anyone be capable of ordering our destruction? A: Perfectly well.intervene unless this be decided from on high. We could. and if we were to receive such an order we would carry it out to the full Furthermore. The time has come for scientists to stop and think. how Enoch and Elijah were carried up in a chariot of fire. after only a century of scientific progress. is any inhabitant of any planet. This is the height of human impertinence. and see the parallel. destruction of all living matter of Earth. because unseen eyes watch over this little planet and they know full well who acts without evil intent. I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north. It would be rendered sterile in a matter of seconds. and read how Lot was delivered from Sodom when it was about to be destroyed. and realise that as he has been in the habit of oppressing the weak. how much greater must ours be. We would never question them. It is not right that man's folly should endanger the stability of the planetary system and destroy the lives of others far away. The conquest of other planets and the subjugation of their inhabitants has already been mooted. If Earth. Rest assured that the just shall not be forsaken.

We have orders to defend ourselves. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell. like the most High. We are present at your cabinet meetings. One day the end must come. Enough of this folly. We have done everything possible to show that there are powers superior to those on Earth. We have performed aerobatics over cities. I am a being of very limited attainment and it is not within my grasp to say what should be the fate of earthly things. Rest assured that we would act before they endangered us. So long as men waged their petty wars of conquest. and is represented by earthly science. air bases. But it is time for man to stop and think. we wished to show men that the possession of power does not give rein to violence and that we have no desire to seize the planet. May he not bring us to the violence which we so thoroughly condemn and which we would eternally rue. we tolerated it all. either we. I do not know how all this will end. His salvation is our salvation. Away with these crimes. and tomorrow it may be worse. let us hope there will be no need for us to knock it down. Let him live and allow us to live. singly and in formation. We merely kept our distance. we read their motives. We know your affairs better than you know them yourselves. Today this tower again threatens the heavens. A little thought costs nothing. . I do not even know whether men will mend their ways. I personally received an order to move in against an armed aircraft which was rash enough to open fire against my craft. or man himself will press a button to end the story of a humanity which preferred to die rather than to live happily in accordance with the laws of God. may he not force us to an act of desperation. to the sides of the pit" (Isaiah I: i~: xii-xv). low. and far less whether a superior intelligence will go on tolerating them much longer. we know when the war leaders meet and what they plan. We could also remind you of what happened to the men of Babel who tried to reach the heavens with their tower. or will resolve to act. avoiding further contact with those who could not understand us. may he not lead us into evil. we know the hypocrisy with which they exchange platitudes. But nothing convinces men on Let him continue along the atomic road he is following. We have flown high. Someone. Now man constitutes a serious risk for everybody.

They will thus be increasingly subject to attraction. If you calculate the speed of solar rays in space as I showed you by checking the difference between the luminosity of the rising Sun and the Sun at zenith. as they have no atmosphere. the greater the heat. the less covering they have. as it has virtually no depth. Jupiter. It could he that the entry of another Sun into our system will bring about a "cracking" process. subject to intenser radiation.000 miles. So the atmospheric and etheric compositions of these planets are not the same as those of planets on this side of Saturn. and Saturn has none at all. when it is so near the Sun? A: Certainly. so as to provide sufficient heat to maintain life. many of Jupiter's and Saturn's satellites are inhabited. Its great etheric mass filters the rays of the Sun.000 miles. which has none at all. Mars. Up to that point the ether and atmosphere are there to filter the rays of the Sun. Q: But can Mercury support life. the planets again acquire an etheric cover on an increasing scale. Venus. and decreasingly subject to repulsion. Uranus. Jupiter has one. no longer with the object of filtering the Sun's rays. Bear in mind that whereas Earth's etheric covering extends a mere 250. the greater the covering.Life on Other Worlds Q: Are all the planets inhabited? A: Some are and some are not. Jupiter and Saturn are not inhabited. is a new body which recently developed a rarefied atmosphere. in view of the fact that their diameters decrease and their density increases. From Saturn outwards. but we cannot consider it as such. whichever you like to say-covers bodies to keep out cold. However. has been given an etheric covering exactly large enough to filter these rays to a point where they fill into the visible spectrum on reaching the surface of the planet. until we come to Saturn. As it solidifies it will contract. however. . it is still unsuitable for life. by which the denser elements will be precipitated. It is a world in formation. also. with a small solid centre. with the equatorial radius of the Earth as a base. Earth. you will see that Mercury. but in our case the opposite takes place. It is a sphere of low density. In our system the following are inhabited: Mercury. Mercury's extends 390. almost entirely composed of heavy gases. liberating the elements that will eventually form its atmosphere. However. Neptune and Pluto. but to produce a positive reaction to them. As these bodies become more dense they will move closer to the gravitational centre of our system. From the calculation we made together you saw that the farther bodies are from the Sun. God-or Nature.

Q: I find it hard to see how a distant planet can have an atmosphere sensitive to the rays of the Sun. . too. Certain species of vegetation emit light under bacteriological action. but can keep itself alive for a certain time by breathing air. like others you entertain. though rarefied. is a good conductor of heat. If similar reactions were produced within the atmosphere of the planets. Nevertheless one can visit the other and remain alive for a long period. Insects produce quite a strong light by utilising their own internal enzyme reactions. Gravity is an illusion. which may seem absurd to you. and then subjects the mixture to a ray of light. What more spectacular demonstration could one wish for than that which takes places when one mixes a small quantity of chlorine with water. Q: Have the beings on these planets a material form? A: What do you expect them to be made of? They cannot be made of energy because only spirit is energy. The metablism of a man from Pluto is not precisely the same as that of an inhabitant of Mercury. But we also came to the conclusion that all inhabited planets have an atmosphere. Q: But is our constitution very different from that of the people of other planets? A: There are differences. But the difference between Pluto's and Mercury's atmospheres is not nearly as great as that between air and water. in view of the tiny fraction of light they receive. This will give rise to a violent explosion and emission of light and heat. mix other gases with the hydrogen and you will obtain other kinds of light. Their atmosphere.The amount of diffused light is much greater than on Earth. A: There are many kinds of light. avery small ray of light could produce a tremendous reaction with vast magnetic storms. but the human form is Nature's chosen form. Its origin can also be chemical. so the difference is a small one. All have warmth. wherein an important part is played by the atmospheric covering which is responsible for differences in density. You can make cold light by electrical discharges through gas. We discussed how gravity is a combination of phenomena. so one could stay alive a long time. either by solar radiation or by chemical reaction. A fish lives in a dense medium. Q: But has gravity no effect? A: None. Why then deny that Nature has other methods of giving life to a planet? Put an electric charge through a tube of hydrogen and it will produce a bluish light.

and any attempt at conquest would be fatal. However. low foreheads. They do not feed on heavy substances as we do. They are the gayest in the planetary system. Organically they function in a different way from the inhabitants of other planets. intelligent. predominantly a fair type. yet they are material beings. 10 in. They do not war among themselves-war. They possess what one might call the body of resurrection. There are all sorts. The people are identical in nearly everything.4in. both in appearance and in spirit. its surface will be riddled with meteorites. as you have pigmies. But not withstanding their advanced intelligence. But we all live in the same family. On Mars there are two root races. Two of its satellites are inhabited. energetic and active. The fair race is the most tractable and gentle. their maximum stature is 5 ft. They belong to various races. and this planet is regarded as the centre of evil. The only reason they do not harm any other inhabitants of the system is because they know that these other beings are more evolved. with small eyes. But there is a great variety of life on these heavenly bodies. only on its satellites. On Uranus and Neptune the inhabitants are very similar. alas. but they do not use them much. but they are the most like Earth people. down to Lilliputian beings. The little people are in the majority. well built. and any instances of saucers doing harm to people on Earth can be attributed to them. and their blood is different. only exists on Earth. They have their space crafts. But they are dangerous beings. talkative. from men of 7 ft. They are strong. one fair and one dark. what are the chief differences between the people of the various planets? A: We cannot say. kindly. There is no life on Jupiter. no beards. There the men are intelligent and kind. Due to its lack of atmosphere. well made noses. On Pluto life is very similar to that on Earth. But their fate is sealed. that the people of Mercury are tall or short. and above all. with large eyes and very well developed heads. Q: As regards appearance. Their bodies are well made. but the difference between one planet and another is insufficient to prevent interchange between people of different planets. On Venus they reach 6 ft.The principal factor in gravity is the vertical component of magnetism. There are all sizes. The people of Earth have committed many misdeeds. The dark race is composed of people who are short of stature and of a lively disposition. with large magnetic eyes. They are tall and muscular. They never commit any sin. but on liquids or gases. They allow their baser instincts to rule them. There is no life on Saturn either. Not even we can fathom all their wisdom. They are tall. For you these beings would be quite inexplicable because they never die. they are enigmatic. but its inhabitants are yet in their . spiritually minded. They learned to travel though space a long time ago. They are energetic. dark. for example. they incline to evil and neglect God.

For this reason. Evil will not be allowed to continue indefinitely. Q: As far as I can gather from your statements. old age and death. but chose to ignore them. rebellion and disrespect for the physical integrity of others. then it would itself become a law. because if it were a basic condition for the evolution of individuals of various worlds. their rapid transport systems. . and in the dawn of their intelligent life. brilliant lighting and communications and. The in-habitants of Pluto were fully aware of divine laws. leaving it in the possession of others who will be like the inhabitants of the satellites of Saturn. Their intelligence cannot go beyond the normal senses. Those who cannot adjust themselves to the higher order of things will be evacuated from the planet. maturity. all under the banner of love. and so fell under the whole sway of evil. For this reason. will be written off and crumble into ruin like historical Babylon. justice will take its full course. with its hanging gardens. Pluto will be torn away from this system. and finish up as a complete landslide. You talk in terms of biological evolution. in fact. The human race has reached a point in its development where it should disappear. The splendour of their cities. Anything that departs from these tenets is a transgression. Its inhabitants will suffer untold horror and will not be able to escape. We thus get a picture of mental development accompanied by physical atrophy. Earth will be left with a humanity similar to the inhabitants of Saturn's satellites. The transgression of law is not a natural phenomenon. There should be a pari-passu development between intelligence and the physical body if this theory were true. which can start off with the fall of a small stone. without expelling this planet from the solar system. It is absurd to think that evil should itself be a law. Then our system 'will return to normal and we shall become as one large family. Human beings have gone as far as they can go. As for Pluto. God will punish humanity. They will be degraded to the state of cave men under atrocious conditions. but with moderation. It is like an avalanche. sodomy. the body has been attacked by strange diseases which are on the increase. Whereas intelligence has reached a high stage of development. Races are like men with their infancy and adolescence. They became prey to sexual pleasure and as a direct result of this laid themselves open to other sins such as idolatry. with the exception of a small elite who have settled down here as teachers.infancy. these are love of God and love of one's neighbour. Does this mean human beings will be changed? A: This is exactly what I wanted to convey. There are only two tenets that can claim immortality on any inhabited world. all that a highly intelligent humanity can attain to through millennia of constant progress. and 'will wander towards the nearest constellation. but let us see if this is true or not. beyond your imagination.

composed of beings with sufficient brain power to grasp all the increasingly complex problems associated with progress. except those that constituted the links in the evolutionary chain. the result is still a gas. there is an integral transformation of brain and body. Does this imply that inanimate machinery is superior to spirit? Not at all. and never will find them. But this requires the appearance of a new race on Earth. Earthly science. Knowledge is garnered until. at a given instant. These bodies would have the capacity to take a further step along the path to wisdom. When a race is no longer capable of keeping up the struggle against constantly changing climate and circumstance. Its progress is based almost entirely on this. there is a sudden transformation and they cease to be gases and turn into liquid. sought for the links in the chain of evolution. as. because they do not exist. There was no gradual change in the gas.29 Q: How? . and we can go on adding to either element without anything happening until we get to C2H4 when there is a sudden transformation and the gas changes its characteristics radically. Many races are buried in the life cycle of a planer. then why should this not also apply to a race? What is impossible for man is easy for God. for example. The same thing happens in the case of carbon and hydrogen. Why should Nature have played such a trick to hide them if everything that exists is for man's enlightenment? This. which may have to be done by machines. in the chemical combinations of carbon and hydrogen.The physical body as it is would not give intelligence very much more room for development. If a sun has its old age and disintegration. How can you talk of indefinite progress when you are bound to a body of limited capacity and of a low order. He can cause a planet to be inhabited in a moment. In life the process is the same. It is wrong to say that Nature does not progress by sudden leaps. CH2 is a gas. then the race disappears like any other living thing. It finds many things which are not links. If one adds an atom of hydrogen to an atom of oxygen.28 Q: But how can a planet come to be inhabited if all its people have perished? A: God performs an act of resurrection. Earthly science and techniques will reach such an advanced stage that the brain will no longer be able to cope with the problems involved. believing in natural selection. therefore. It did not find them. but it preserved its characteristics until sufficient elements were added to bring about the sudden transformation. It is strange that all races have left their traces on Earth. is not what happens. which proves their nonexistence. but if a further atom of hydrogen is added.

should He decide to repopulate the Earth? Q: Does this mean to say that the present race came into being in this way? A: There is no doubt about it. If such fragments can remain in existence. and there had to be an intervention of the heavenly powers which created the new race. do you think Nature has run through her repertoire and exhausted her possibilities on Earth? A lion would die in the Arctic. It would be a slight on the powers of the Supreme Spirit to think that He who made matter should not also have the power to make ectoplasm. that is to say. from its ectoplasm. and the Biblical narrator is correct when he stated that woman was moulded from Adam's rib. how much greater then would be the power of God. the spirits could manipulate the ectoplasm of the Earth itself and create bodies from it. whereas a bear is quite happy . and the body of Eve was moulded from this. but the soil is their ideal medium. If any power were capable of forming a new body. This is the act of resurrection I spoke of. If ordinary spirits of a lower order can mould a body in accordance with their will. Vegetables also have their ectoplasm and their roots draw it up from the soil. far superior to those of the present race. In many of these cases of manifestation hairs and pieces of clothing have been left and preserved intact. it would only need an act of will on its part to continue living a lifr of its own. These new beings would have fantastic bodies and brains. However. It has all the organs that a normal individual has. This event is very clearly depicted in the case of Eve. God creates types of beings to suit the medium in which they are placed. the amphibian can live in air or water. If God were to ordain that a new race should populate the Earth. She was. Its organism is real and its activity can be controlled. Earthworms live in the same world as man. Adam was in fact moulded from the dust of the Earth. and the planet became uninhabitable. Q: If there were an atomic disaster. After manifestation the ectoplasm is generally reabsorbed by the passive agent. indeed.A: Spirit acts on matter and fashions it to its will where such super-physical phenomena are commonplace. If life now manifests itself in various forms. surely it would draw the necessary elements for it from the ground. the spirit manipulates the ectoplasm of a passive agent and moulds from it a body which is visible ~o the living. how could the spirit mould new bodies that could keep alive? A: Lift could well be impossible for the body as it is now. there is no reason why a whole body should not remain. God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep. fish live in water. It would only have to sever its connection with the passive agent. flesh of Adam's flesh. but on the other hand it could be ideal for other bodies. and disappears. Q: But is not ectoplasm a by-product of the nervous system? How could it be drawn from the Earth? A: Everything is drawn from the Earth. using him as the passive supplier of ectoplasm. the eagle prefers heights where the atmosphere is rarefied. The ancient race had used up the whole of its evolutionary energy.

. "Behold the Lord snaketh the land empty and maketh it waste." (Isaiah 13: ix-xiii). and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. home sapiens appears to be in a hurry to get to the end of his career and to deprive Nature of its right to put an end to him by exhaustion. Therefore the curse devoured the earth. The earth is utterly broken down. and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. what marvels could it not perform? Man will have to disappear from the face of the Earth. And the Lord have removed men far away. and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease... For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth. who was the resurrection of a dying race. whether it becomes too hot. . were supplemented by a spiritual power. and few men left. and shall be removed like a cottage and the . The land shall be utterly emptied. and there be a great for salting in the midst of the land" (Isaiah 6: xixii). and utterly spoiled for the Lord hath spoken this word. I will make a man more precious than fine gold. and homo sapiens will be replaced by spiritual man. And if Nature.. so long as he allows Nature to effect this transformation quietly on her own. and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother" (Isaiah 9: xix). Perhaps it is just because he is bent on self-destruction. In Isaiah we read the following: "Until the cities be wasted without inhabitation ~ and the houses without man.. and the wicked for their iniquity. and the land be utterly desolate. and they that dwell therein are desolate.. with this wonderful power of creation.. "Behold the day of the Lord cometh.. and turneth it upside down. the oppressors are consumed out of the land" (Isaiah 16: iv). cruel both with wrath and fierce anger. the spoiler ceaseth. and the earth shall remove out of her place. However.. There was no total disappearance of living beings from the planet." "There are various Biblical references to the complete destruction of living beings. Nature will in every case devise an appropriate life form. "The consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness. therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned.there.. Thee earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard. even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. made his appearance on the planet. "Through the wrath of the Lord of Hosts is the land darkened. Therefore I will shake the heavens. and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. for the Lord God of Hosts shall make a consumption" (Isaiah to: xxii-xxiii). And I will punish the world for their evil. When the first man of the present race. the earth is clean dissolved. to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it . there were still some men of the old race left who were dying off. Whether the Earth is covered with ice. and the earth is moved exceedinly. for the extortioner is at an end. whether it is radioactive or not..

Behold. In Chapter as of the same letter. Letters to the Corinthians. and removing to and fro? and who hath brought up these? Behold I was left alone. the human race rarely survives more than 7. Ch. seeing I have lost my children. q. Then he said to me: "Now I am going. John. who was in turn a disciple of St. To begin with we continued our discussion on various scientific subjects. According to other Fathers of the Church. Should there be any hitch from your side. and am desolate. Seek that science which will bring happiness to all. Such laws cannot and should not be respected. and not from the beginning. do not attach too much importance to all the scientific things we have talked about. I create new heavens and a new earth. FAREWELL! We met at the Roosevelt station in Sao Paulo. that I may be glorified" (Isaiah 6o: xxi). which is born from the body of its predecessor when it is ageing and near death.and not rise again"(Isaiah24) While talking about destruction.

Science is like a law. "They shall inherit the land for ever. If it loses its protective character and becomes oppressive. a captive. Love is the true science. and the former shall not be remembered nor come into mind" (Isaiah 6~: xvii). shelters and serves him. Clement of Alexandria. 1956. Science is only a means of giving us certain facilities. He maintains that the human race is created and lives until it is in time succeeded by another. I will see you again in 1959 if you are still here. the work of my hands. I knew them" (Isaiah 48: vii). If you wish to see me again. and later talked about ethics and religion. . the branch of my planting. these where had they been?" (Isaiah 49: xxi). they also assert that earth will be inhabited by other men: "Then shalt thou say in shine heart. and of teaching us how to use the forces of Nature. "I should like you to always remember one thing. "For behold. he gives the divine phoenix as an example. then it is time it was abolished and replaced by another.and it shall fall. it is only beneficial when it guarantees the tights of man. "What shall it avail man if he knows all things and all the secrets of the Universe. Once again I shall keep my word. lest thou shouldest say.transgressions there of shall be heavy upon it. and above all seek God because only He has meaning in the Universe. In seances 28" They are created now. 29St.

men would have arrived in hell long ago. it would be better to live without it. For an instant they departed from the ways of evil with all the power of their heart. Divine acts are not subordinate to time and space. but man the aid of science could destroy himself and his fellows. but with no spirit of compassion and respect for the lives of others. should become a source of destruction to the human race. "They worship Christ in vain and fruitlessly pay homage to Him. an opportunity is always given to him that repents. The only thing that He wishes is that they should love one another. Of what use is knowledge that used a whole people as guinea pigs. Here are the paths which lead to Armageddon. Without it many could lead a spiritual life. because then they would at least live. It is a pity that human beings have insufficient scientific knowledge to dominate all Nature. If man needed time to be pardoned. "Do not seek the salvation of your soul through science. God is not moved by rhetoric. then it should be put aside. God does not destroy anyone. life on Earth would be inexorably destroyed. become saints and martyrs. on this false basis. Rather should they make a constant prayer of their own lives and their love for their neighbour. and by divine action this second's repentance was made permanent. "There is yet time to save the world. "It is to different of saying the Earth no avail. Man should not pray so much with pretty words. it should be cast away. God could make a fraction of a second into an eternity. This is the reason why some criminals. instead of being a gift of God. Since science is a great evil for them. enjoying all the things that Nature provides. If the crime is great. in a moment of repentance. if the salt should lose its savour and its strength. It is preferable to live in ignorance and allow others to live than for all to be drowned as a result of a little knowledge. killing thousands. are moved when we see those cities and never tire that here was where the first blow of brute power struck and its inhabitants. There is no criminal who cannot be pardoned. The possession of scientific knowledge has no significance. All of us who travel through space. destroying innocent people and bringing grief to those Japanese cities whose names remain as milestones on the road to destruction. If this were a means of spiritual progress.It is like the salt that Christ referred to. men from planets. . but with it millions will meet nothing but affliction. and not be as poor as they are now. Science exists so that man may live well and that there should be an abundance of all things. But if this science. A man can live without science. God's love is greater still. Here Christian people crucify Jesus again and proclaim the supremacy of the Beast who is to rule the Earth.

. We have tried to render them as we heard them. and the only reward you should expect is something which nobody can take away. using our notes as a basis." I asked him. We have. on the contrary. "It would perhaps be better if you were not here. There is always a moment of separation and before I got into the saucer you would no longer be able to see me. and that beyond death there is hope and consolation. because it exists within your heart alone. Nothing has been added. May God be with you. Until that time we shall be linked in thought. and partly because we saw no point in publishing things that could not help to solve our most immediate problems. that when you do tell others. In life. Do not imagine. you would be upset. whether they be good or bad. The ideas expressed in this book. What would be the point in discussing the use of anti-electrons in breaking down matter. swans are mute. but decided that this would be disloyal to someone who had shown such friendliness to me. had to cut out a great deal. CONCLUSION We have given an account of things as they happened. partly to avoid making the book too long.If God cares so much for a single soul. they will take much notice. but they never depart without a song. should He not care that much more for humanity? Therefore pay more attention to spiritual things and use science as a means of explaining them. "And now. But there may be someone unknown to you to whom your work will be of great value. Tell them that wherever there is spirit. Many have spoken without any apparent result. But do not leave without telling your friends that life extends through the infinities of space from sphere to sphere and from world to world. farewell! I shall take with me some books in order to study Earthly science a little more. I had a strong desire to follow him at any cost. are not our own. however. instead of being put to a constructive use? We already have enough ways of slaying one another. When I return I will do my best to bring you something in writing about our science and our ethics. and have told you what we heard. "I know that you will refuse to tell others about the meetings we have had. if this process were only to be used as yet another weapon of destruction. God will have prepared a vehicle for it." He gave me his hand and took leave of me again. because then you would be somewhere else where it would be easier for us to make contact. but one day you will have to do so by force of circumstance. but he told me: "Why follow me? Do not come 'with me. I would like to have followed him to the place where he was to board his saucer. My saucer is quite close and it would not be pleasant for you to see the circumstances in which I leave." I saw him vanish round a corner." "Supposing I am not here when you come back.

The saucer is a vessel which makes all our knowledge of aerodynamics obsolete. It does not really matter whether people believe saucers come from outer space. Ten of these craft could transport the whole of the harvest from the Parana in a matter of minutes without having to have special landing fields built for them. from the Earth. flat. Many people believe that saucers are Earth-made craft. We have naturally not said very much about how saucers fly. cigar-shaped. slow and susceptible to climatic conditions. Why should people worry about where they come from? What could be of great interest to our tortured and problem-ridden planet would be to know the methods they use. They are far more than winged cargo ships. In fact. Roads and railways. However. Some people even go so far as to assert that they hail from underground cities belonging to a civilisation that had hidden there to avoid contact with us. whether this be one of criticism or of praise. which can be tailored to fit the cargo. Even in this sphere we have left a number of topics pending. and see whether we could not do the same thing. one of the purposes of this book was to try to illustrate the forces the saucers use to navigate in our atmosphere. oval. Saucers can be made bell-shaped. Anything else is merely arid. With its vast area. square. and even less about the scientific methods used to give them their phenomenal stability. that is entirely our own point of view and the reader may well disagree with it. no country could derive greater benefit from a craft of almost unlimited speed and payload than Brazil. etc. is to expound the ideas which could be used to improve human relations. It is up to the reader to form his own judgment. or at least something like it.Would that man did not use the knowledge he already has to the detriment of other people's lives and property. would lose their importance. or from below the Earth: . It seemed unfair to publicise things that could be of use to our own country in solving many of the pressing problems that face it. Its speed and carrying capacity are unaffected by its shape. and the means they use to travel through space on interplanetary voyages. Our only crime consists in claiming to have been in contact with beings who say they are from another world. academic discussion of no practical interest. others believe them to have come from other worlds. its impoverished population in the interior. We have not gone into a discussion about their origin as this could not benefit anyone. All we have endeavoured to do. until we see how this book is received. our own conviction will remain quite unshaken. and then to modify our Earthly knowledge accordingly.

If he were only blessed with the capacity for making men remember God and follow his Commandments. and we have good reason for saying this. in honour of the god of war. by comparison. An appeal has been made at a time when the trumpets are summoning humanity to the holocaust that is to take place in the valley of Jehoshaphet. . and has appealed to man to do good and to follow the path of moderation and restraint. anything else would. Let us not forget the injunctions that man should follow a path of peace and compassion. He has given us a categorical affirmation of the existence of God at a moment when the world is wallowing in iniquity. and proving that everything written by the early Christians was true. be unimportant.we know that the things that have been revealed to us are true.
