Walter Russell (1871-1963) was an ancient soul incarnate as a genius, “an American polymath known for his achievements as a painter, sculptor, author and builder and less well known as a natural philosopher and for his unified theory in physics and cosmogony. . . . He believed mediocrity is self-inflicted and genius is self-bestowed.” His life’s mission and purpose was to bring about lasting and revolutionary change to human consciousness and the scientific world in order to save mankind from destroying itself and the Earth.
Russell wrote with exceptional clarity of complex concepts on the way the Universe works energetically. To him all of creation—from the microcosm of atoms and subatomic particles to the macrocosm of solar systems and quasars—manifests an intelligent design based on what he called a “two-way universe of giving and re-giving” which he foresaw scientists and physicists would inevitably study and implement here on Earth. In fact, the very survival of the human race depends on it.
I would like to spend a few posts sharing some of his perspective from one of his books I recently read with keen interest. But first, a little background introduction to this author.
The book, A NEW CONCEPT of the UNIVERSE, was first copyrighted and published in 1953 as a special revised edition of “A BRIEF TREATISE ON THE RUSSELL COSMOGONY” and was published again in 1989. Walter and his “deeply illumined” and “congenial” wife Lao worked together as a team exploring the mysteries of life and how the universe works. They founded the University of Science and Philosophy in Swannanoa, Virginia, where they co-authored several books and a Home Study Course in Universal Law, Natural Science And Living Philosophy. Together they wrote ATOMIC SUICIDE? in 1957 and The Electrifying Power Of Man-Woman Balance: World Peace Through World Balance. Among several other books, Walter wrote “THE SECRET OF LIGHT in 1947 and Lao wrote and published a wonderful book entitled GOD WILL WORK WITH YOU, BUT NOT FOR YOU in 1955. You can find their books online at Amazon.com.
Walter left school at the age of 9 to work during hard times, but also because he didn’t feel he fit any longer in the company of his earth-bound peers after having his first out-of-body experience and ecstatic fusion with Cosmic Consciousness at age 7 alone in a woods — where he often retreated thereafter when he wanted “to be alone with God.”
At age 14 Walter was stricken with black diphtheria, identical to the black plague, and died of the illness only to resurrect his body from death. His throat functions had been destroyed. About this experience he wrote:
I had no awareness of my body, whatsoever, but while in that state a great ecstasy overwhelmed me with all-knowing Light of Love and, to the amazement of my weeping parents, I arose from my bed perfectly healed. . . It was then given me to know that the power of revitalization of my body was mine, and I, who had been pronounced dead by man, lived strongly in the body.” (The Message of the Divine Iliad, Vol. II)
HIS STORY AND COMMISSION
Here are some interesting facts about this genius who, like Edgar Cayce, revisited Earth to shed a light of truth into clouded and confused areas of human consciousness and hopefully leave behind him a better world because he had lived and delivered his gift to humankind. He lived with a sense of commission and wrote with daring and challenging authority from a perspective far above that of his peers in the scientific world.
In 1921, at the age of 49, Walter Russell experienced his Illumination into the Light of Cosmic Consciousness during a thirty nine day and night period. His family even consulted specialists in order to decide if he had to be admitted into a psychiatric clinic. Fortunately these doctors were very impressed by his recordings and sensed that something great was happening.
In 1927, Walter Russell published “The Universal One”, his fist attempt to explain the Cosmic Laws for the established scientists. As he failed completely, he worked another twenty years on it. The result is his “The Secret of Light” , which he published in 1947.
In 1941, the American Academy of Sciences conferred a doctorate on him, after several laboratories had isolated the elements which he had foreseen: Deuterium, Tritium, Neptunium and Plutonium.
In the meantime he gave numerous speeches and for 12 years he lectured upon the Law of rhythmic interchange and ethical principles in business to the officers and salesmen of IBM. Together with other notable figures of his time he built the ”Twilight Club“ , which very successfully gave positive spiritual impulses for the betterment of humankind. Their efforts resulted in notable service organizations like the Rotary Club, The Lions Club, the Boy Scouts of America and many others. They stood up for a right of education, for minimum wages, controlled advertising and much more, getting big support from Adolph Ochs, the owner of the New York Times at that time.
HERALD OF THE “NEW AGE OF TRANSMUTATION”
At the very beginning of the book is “An Open Letter To The World Of Science” which really grabbed me. Russell minces no words in laying out his message and life’s mission. He sent it to some 350 members of the National Academy of Science and Royal Society of London, a hundred Universities, and three-hundred leading newspapers as carrier waves for his pioneering and dynamic spirit that would find its influence in the scientific world. Here’s how it begins:
This announcement with its new concept of Light, Matter, Energy, Electricity and Magnetism is a simple yet complete, consistent and workable cosmogony which will enable future scientists to visualize the universe as ONE WHOLE, and will open the door to the New Age of Transmutation.
He was born into a world at war and took aim at the one solution that would end all wars: make them impotent. He had already made significant contributions to science, one being his two Periodic Tables of Elements, which included two elements he charted and copyrighted in 1926 that were used in making the atomic bomb used on Japan to end World War II. In the fourth paragraph of his letter he comes right to the point:
Present threatening world conditions make it imperative that science discloses the way whereby the weakest of nations can protect itself from the strongest of them and render attack by land, sea and air impotent.
This new knowledge will give science this power.
Russell’s “new knowledge” makes atomic energy look like battery juice and the atomic and hydrogen bombs like expensive fireworks. He literally re-discovered for mankind a way to unleash and harness the cosmic energy that creates and operates the Universe. Used as a deterrent, a nation would have the power to literally make any and all attacks by other nations utterly impotent.
HIS DREAM: FREE ENERGY FOR ALL
As I said, he was born into a world at war, so his discoveries and knowledge were applied to wartime strategies with the intention of ending World War II, which he was instrumental in doing. But he had nobler motives and more far reaching goals in mind. His ultimate goal was to give every human being the ability to harvest energy right out of the air they breathe and industry the technology to transmute needed metals out of common ordinary sand rather than having to dig for them and blow up mountain tops.
You’ll have to read his work yourself to even begin to understand the following, which is based on his understanding of musical frequencies and octaves and their application to elemental chemistry and physics. He was a musician from his boyhood years. I could summarize his letter, but then you would be deprived of enjoying the current of his pioneering spirit conveyed by his own words.
The world needs new metals. Many new rustless metals of greater density, malleability and conductivity await division in vast quantities from carbon and silicon. These will be found when science discards its concept of matter as being substance, and becomes aware of the gyroscopic control of motion which will split the carbon tone into isotopes as a musical tone is split into sharps and flats.
In the chemical elements, the sharps and flats are isotopes. These can be produced by man in greater numbers than Nature has produced them, for Nature does not begin to split her tones until she has passed two octaves beyond carbon. There is tremendous opportunity for the metallurgist of tomorrow to create new metals in the carbon and silicon octaves.
Of even greater importance to the world is this crucial period is the production of unlimited quantities of free hydrogen. This ideal weightless fuel could be transmuted from the atmosphere while in transit without the necessity of storage capacity.
These are important things which might now be known if Kepler’s discovery had divulged the facts of geometric symmetry and dual curvature within the wave field.
His law of elliptical orbits evidences that he was on the verge of discovering that four — not two — magnetic poles control the dual opposed balance of this two-way universe. With but two magnetic poles a three-dimensional radial universe of time intervals and sequences would be impossible. A balanced universe must have two poles to control centripetal generoactive force, and two compensating poles to control centrifugal radioactive force.
By means of such knowledge, science could rid the earth of fear of attack by any nation no matter how the attack might come, whether by land, sea or air.
Russell proceeds to make his case for what he calls “Mind-knowing” as opposed to “sense-thinking,” but doesn’t stop there. He takes on the laboratory proof of the existence of God:
This new knowledge will give to science the cause of all the effects which have for centuries of research deceived the senses of scientific observers.
Man has a Mind as well as having senses, but he has given preference to the evidence of his senses in the building of his cosmogony. Man can reason with his senses but he cannot know with them. Reasoning is sense-thinking – not Mind-knowing. He has also produced effects without knowing their cause.
The senses have not revealed to man that this is a substanceless universe of motion only. Neither have they told him the principle of polarity which divides the universal equilibrium into pairs of oppositely-conditioned mates to create a sex-divided electric two-way universe.
The time has come in the history of man when knowledge alone can save the human race. Man has for too long left the Creator out of His Creation, thinking He cannot be proven in the laboratory.
God not only can be proven in the laboratory, but because of the facts of that proof man can solve many heretofore hidden mysteries of the universe — such as that of the seed and growth — life and death cycles — the purpose of the inert gases as electric recorders of all repetitive effects — and the true process of atomic structure.
Apparently ahead of his time by just a few decades with the darkness of his time not comprehending the light of his intuited knowledge, Russell expresses his frustration with the sense-thinking scientific community:
You might reasonable ask why I have withheld this knowledge for so many years. I have not withheld it. I tried in vain to give it from 1926 when I first published charts of the complete periodic tablets herewith attached, up to the beginning of World War II when I tried to organized a laboratory group to save England from its unnecessary bombardment.
I also accepted and held the Presidency of The Society of Arts and Sciences in New York for seven years for the sole purpose of giving to the world this new cosmogony based upon a two-way continuous, balanced universe which is presumably expanding to a heat death.
During this period, I lectured upon the misconceived idea that hydrogen is the basic number one atom of the periodic table. I explained that there are twenty-one other elements which precede it and that hydrogen itself is not a single element but a whole complex octave. I also explained the impossibility of there being any element without an inert gas as its source. At that time I distributed my periodic charts to approximately 800 scientists and universities.
Further than inciting research which yielded so-called isotopes of hydrogen and heavy water, nothing came of my effort, nor did I receive the credit due me. Incidentally, those so-called isotopes are not isotopes but full-toned elements of an orderly octave group series. Isotopes do not occur in Nature until they reach the octave following the silicon octave. The reasons for this are fully explained in our Study Course. I wrote two books, gave many lectures and set up a demonstration laboratory in a university to prove that the elements are not different substances but are differently-conditioned pressures of motion — and that the structure of the atom is based upon the gyroscopic principle.
As one after another of my discoveries appeared under other names, I acted on the advice of a friendly science editor to withhold any more of my new cosmogony until it was fully completed in words and diagrams, and again copyrighted.
It has taken many years to so complete it that it is invulnerable to attack, but this has now been done, and this present treatise is as complete in brief as the whole cosmogony is complete in detail.
I do not look for immediate acceptance of this revolutionary new knowledge. I do hope and expect, however, that the seed of it will grow within the consciousness of science, and as I am nearing 82 years of age I feel it incumbent to announce the fact to science through this open letter and treatise that The Russell Cosmogony, which my gifted wife, Lao, and I have together written into a year’s Study Course of 935 uncontradictable pages, and 182 diagrams, is now complete.
This course is now being studied all over the world and, through our students as seed, this new knowledge will ultimately transform the world.
It is with the deep desire that a higher civilization shall arise that I send forth this message to mankind. The day is here when Science and Religion must marry, or through ignorance of God’s Universal Laws man will perish from the earth.
Hoping that the world of science will recognize that this treatise has within it the answer to basic cause for which it has been so long and tirelessly searching, I am
Greatness once again has spoken words that, perhaps not heard for their full meaning and significance, nevertheless impacted human consciousness and changed history. I’ll tell you more about some of his “new knowledge” in my next post. Until then,
Be love. Be loved.
