Article by T. Galen Hieronymus — from Journal of Borderland Research (Vol. 44, No. 3, May – June 1988)
This article was presented to mark the passing of Dr. Thomas Galen Hieronymus (Nov. 21, 1895 – Feb. 21, 1988), a true pioneer in the field of radionics. Dr. Hieronymus was a discoverer of unique attributes of the life force which he termed “eloptic energy”. His work stimulated continuing research in radionics, and his patent No. 2,482,773 has become a standard concept which many radionic instruments have been built from, some using just the pattern drawn on paper. People with original thoughts are few and far between. Galen’s presence on this earth has influenced many to look beyond the norm and BSRF honors a man who blazed a trial for others to follow. Rather than eulogizing, we present an important experiment from his patent for future researchers to work with.
Radiations from each of the known elements of matter produce some form of energy, probably electrons which can be made to flow along electrical conductors. The flow from each of the elements having characteristics different from the others. Conversely, the flow of electrons along a conductor produces a radiation having characteristics of the radiation from each respective element.
Such of the known elements as are required to feed growing plants have been transmitted to the plants through metallic conductors as the plants were entirely isolated from the elements upon which they were fed. More precisely, seeds were planted in boxes in a darkened basement room.
One of the boxes of plants containing some of the seeds was used as a control and no apparatus for transmitting element radiations thereto provided. The remaining boxes of plants had electrodes or plates of conducting material mounted or otherwise disposed adjacent thereto, and each box of plants was separately attached to a conductor extending to a point outside the building where electrodes or plates were attached to the conductors and allowed to remain exposed to the light.
Such of the known elements as required to impart normal characteristics to the plants were apparently fed thereto by having the radiations of the elements from the light conducted to the plants through the wires and associated electrodes.
The treated plants were relatively healthy but the control plant assumed the characteristics of growing vegetation which has been deprived of the elements in natural light. Particularly was the control plant devoid of chlorophyll while the remaining plants were green.
