In 1983 Marcel Vogel deliverd this lecture before the US Psychotronics Association on the radionics camera invented by George de la Warr. Vogel received the camera sometime after de la Warr’s death in 1969, when he and Dan Willis did extensive tests and trials with it. In this lecture, he covers a wide range of topics, including consciousness, thought, microscopy, light, luminescence, energy, intent, life, death, and of course, crystals.
For the portions of the lecture dealing with the De La Warr camera, Vogel plays videos for the audience, unfortunately, the audio is horrible during this portion of the lecture and doesn’t translate well to this format. The worst of these videos run from approximately 1:28 to 1:52, in case you’d like to skip these portions of the lecture. I have done my best to boost the audio during these sections, but this part of the lecture is still difficult to understand, however, the rest of the lecture contains a lot of valuable and interesting information.
Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains of Georgia are the electronic workshops, laboratory, and home of a lively, witty octogenarian engineer, inventor, and philosopher named T. Galen Hieronymus, the Big Daddy of American psionics. More than any other pioneer in the field, Hieronymus name is as familiar to psionics as Nixon’s to politics. The inventor first came to the attention of John W. Campbell, Jr., in the early 1950s when the late editor of Analog began his investigation and subsequent experimentation with scientifically “impossible” devices — instruments so strange and bizarre that he suppressed his natural skepticism and performed experiments with psionics devices personally. Result: A series of articles in Astounding, kicked off by a typical Campbell editorial — hard-nosed, logical — followed by years of controversy, testing, experimentation, more investigation and even official scientific/military interest in the seemingly endless potentialities of quasi-electronic instruments that could (a) analyze the component elements of an ore sample without spectroscopic, chemical or other orthodox methods and, most surprising of all, (b) influence (even kill) living organisms, even from vast distances, with no scientifically understandable mechanism at the other end.
