THE ULTIMATE REALITY VOLUME II JOSEPH H. CATER PART IV THE UNIFYING PRINCIPLE APPLIED TO BORDERLAND PHENOMENA INTRODUCTION TO PART IV Part IV deals with the most perplexing phenomena known to man. The anomalies to be analyzed here are so far beyond present under- standing that entirely new concepts had to be devised in order to cope with them. The previous three major sections have laid the necessary groundwork and supplied the tools for probing into these aspects of natural phenomena. The explanations to be presented are, again, with reference to the Hermetic Axioms. Phenomena to be analyzed for the first ume include teleportation, spirit manifestation, the science of psionics, apparent discrepancies and anomalies of time, and other related topics. The forces and causes which have shaped the destiny of this planet and have brought it to its present state of being, will also be touched upon. Some of the more important research of great pioneers in fields out- side the domain of academic science will be included. This will cover the work of such scienusts as Von Reichenbach, De La Warr, Lakhovsky, and Brunler. The summary given thus far by no means outlines the entire scope of Part IV. Other surprises and revelations await the reader. It 1s impossible for a book of this size to cover all of the strange types of recorded phenomena. Consequently, the author has selected what he considers to be the most unique and baffling to be included in this part, with the assurance that others not discussed heie can be dealt with in like manner and with an equal degree of efficiently. 371 CHAPTER 23 THE EXTRAORDINARY RESEARCH OF BARON KARL VON REICHENBACH It 1s fitting to begin this part of the treatise with an introduction to some of the more significant findings of Baron Karl Von Reichen- bach, since much of his research confirms many of the concepts elaborated upon in the first three parts. Von Reichenbach was un- doubtedly the greatest experimental scientist of the Nineteenth Century, even though he received little recognition for his work. Much of his work was outside the domain of what 1s considered material science, which 1s the primary reason he has generally been ignored. His experimental and theoretical work in the occult and physical fields far surpassed that of those who have slighted him. Von Reichenbach experimented with orgone energy, as did Wil- helm Reich, but each used different terminologies. Sensitives were employed in many of Von Reichenbach’s experiments, which en- abled him to gain insights he would not otherwise have obtained. “Sensitives" are defined as individuals whose senses are more highly developed than those of normal people. Hence, they perceive stimuli which are too tenuous to be recorded by the normal senses. Such procedures are frowned upon, even today, by the narrow and in- flexible thinking of orthodox scientists and are denounced as unsci- entific. These scientists do not possess the mental prowess necessary to realize how the proper use of sensitives in the hands of a genius can be as objective as any laboratory procedure. There 1s a great deal that present-day researchers can still learn by studying the research work of Von Reichenbach. Karl Reichenbach was bom at Stuttgart, Germany, February 12, 1788, and died m Leipzig, January 22, 1869. He built an industrial empire during his youth consisting of iron, steel and metallurgical establishments. He 1s perhaps the only industrialist mn history who achieved true eminence in any scientific or intellectual pursuit. He made a number of important chemical discoveries during the build- 372
