I found this to be very interesting!!! The implications of this help explain, or at least give some material for the ground work of exploring All Paranormal Activity in General as well as Strange and Exotic Technology that seem to push the boundary of Science and Physics. For those who are familiar with the Philadelphia Experiment will also find the details within this very familiar. The entire scope of this material is quite long but well worth it. Below are a few of the more interesting points as well as a general overview of the information that is being addressed. Enjoy!!

The Hutchison Effect
paranormal.about.com...

In 1979, John Hutchison of Vancouver, Canada, accidentally discovered a remarkable phenomenon while experimenting with longitudinal waves - waves that another inventor, Nikola Tesla, had experimented with. According to what has become known as the Hutchison Effect occurs as the result of very powerful radio wave interferences. Heavy objects - even non-magnetic, non-metal objects - levitate or fly into the air. Objects of metal, porcelain, wood and rubber are affected. Hard alloy metals become soft and pliable. Hutchison even performed his experiments for scientists from Los Alamos Laboratory. The effect has been videotaped many times and even broadcast on network television. A complete understanding of the phenomenon has yet to be found, but the implications of its potential seem mind-boggling.


THE POLTERGEIST MACHINE
www.nexusmagazine.com...

Basically, what Hutchison did was cram into a single room a variety of devices which emit electromagnetic fields (such as Tesla coils, van de Graaff generators, RF transmitters, signal generators, etc.). He found that after they had been running for a while, effects began to occur that were identical to what have come to be regarded as poltergeist phenomena. Objects of any material levitated into the air and hovered there, or moved about and then fell; fires started in unlikely places around the building; a mirror smashed at a distance of 80 feet away; metal distorted and broke; water spontaneously swirled in containers; lights appeared in the air and then vanished; metal became white-hot but did not burn any surrounding materials; and so on.

For example, part of the Hutchison effect literally rips half-inch- square steel bars apart and actually shreds the shattered ends (all at low power and at a distance, remember). Tremendous energies come from somewhere, and in his experiments with the disruption of metal masses in the laboratory, Hutchison has developed his own ideas. He wonders if somehow the fabric of space-time is actually breached.

The Hutchison device produces effects which can basically be divided into two categories, propulsive and energetic. It can induce lift in objects made of any material and also propel them laterally. It has been noted that there are four types of trajectory that affect objects weighing a few pounds, and all of these upward movements begin with a twisting spiral movement. Also, there has to be a particular geometry in relation to the direction of gravity, i.e., downwards of these objects, for them to be affected in this way. Some objects will not take off if you turn them on their sides, but will if you stand them on their ends. It is evident, therefore, that the relationship of their physical forms to the fields which swirl invisibly around them is important.

During Hutchison's experiments, flames have been produced and emitted from blocks of concrete, and fires have broken out in different parts of the building where the device was housed. Again, these effects are typical of 'poltergeist' reports. On one occasion, a steel file was held in place against a wooden board by two plywood struts, to prevent it taking off. The file glowed white-hot, but the board when examined afterwards was not even singed.

The device can also induce unusual aurora-like lighting effects in mid-air. Once when Hutchison was filming in 1981, a sheet of iridescence suddenly descended between the camera and some of the hardware being used. It had a strange pinkish centre to it, and after it hovered there for a short period it vanished just as suddenly as it had appeared. Hutchison actually thought he had been hallucinating, but when the film was developed it transpired that there had actually been something objective there.

I just love the title of your post, by the way. I have a mental image of a giant photocopier with ectoplasm splattering out into the document tray. . .

So, there's a wide range of phenomena, that are kind of transitory, I guess?

can the instances be mapped in a room, i.e. the fire always starts 10 inches in front of a mirror that breaks, but the mirror must be at a 90 degree angle fro the floating water, etc?

Or is it just that random spooky stuff is happening while the "Maguffin" is turned on?

If it is the second, then you've got all kinds of creepy hypotheses in store, like

- The thing actually attracts poultergheists

- The device opens up a rift between dimensions, and invisible beings are poking around in our 3-space

- The machine exteriorizes hallucinations from the id, a la "Forbidden Planet"

- The whole thing is caused by reality being plastic, and formed by our thoughts. When someone sets up a field for the interaction of a whole slew of poorly understood waves and forces, the rules of the universe start to unwind. A little tear in the world that presages the approach of the langoliers. . . .

funfunfun.

Exactly, but more than just movement of objects. Stone bursts into flames. Steel will instantly melt, bend, or shed. Different materials will meld together and solidify again without causing damage to either object, like wood into steel, or glass or whatever. It even creates glowing orbs or shapes at random.

Not exactly. Or at least not from what I've read so far or at the time of this material being written. It pretty much happens at random, and what happens is also random as well. Basically it has to do with EM Wave Interferences and EM Fields. The 'Maguffin' as you call it is actually a variety of different machines all turned on at the same time which create and distort EM Waves and Fields. The theory is that as they all bounce around, eventually they cross and interact with each other in ways which then cause the events to happen. However, it can sometimes take minutes, hours or days for something to happen and you never know exactly what it will be. Since John H. first showed it to the scientific community it's been reproduced and is being studied by various other organizations ranging from Military to Scientific to Big Business Aerospace Corps.

Well, so far it is being looked at as Science and without including 'Spiritual' type of interference. However, even John himself mentions at one point that one of his theories is that it somehow disturbers the fabric of space-time itself. Definitely, as even the Nexus article mentions, this discovery should not be viewed like, "Oh yah, all paranormal and similar events are actually just EM Disturbances." and then just dropped. On the contrary, this discovery actually presents us with more questions than answers, but may also give us a practical and scientific method of exploring and experimenting with these strange types of events. I personally see it as perhaps the first step in joining the two fields of research, which is a good thing. The Paranormal Researches can now be taken serious by the scientific community and combined they can hopefully get some real answers and stop fighting with each other all the time.

I remember seeing a special(on tv) on the Hutchison effect, and if memory serves me correctly, he was not able to duplicate that effect after a period of time, basically it worked for awile then simply stopped.

Yes, that's how the story goes apparently. In fact, John couldn't explain what was happening to the scientists who he had come check it out either. They were hoping to see it for themselves and perhaps make sense out of it by being there first hand.

The program you're talking about may be this one:
www.hutchisoneffect.org...

The quality isn't all that great but it is watchable. You'll need RealMedia to view it though. It has some good footage of the effects that are described as well as testimonies from John and other Expert Scientists. The main expert from the US Government that went to examine what was happening even says that he believes it was Real and not a Hoax. However, he sees it as something that John stumbled into and unfortunately since he doesn't know exactly how or why, reproducing it is the real challenge.

Still, it was an interesting and compelling experiment, I was non-the-less impressed.

Yeah, well something tells me that any future knowledge of it has been suppressed. As soon as it became known, the subject caught the interest of the U.S. Military and NSA. Which is not a surprise considering some of the alleged events that take place. Not only could it be a dangerous technology in the wrong hands of someone who could control it, but as I said earlier, some of the effects are very similar to the alleged events of The Philadelphia Exp. I doubt the NSA or any other branch of National Security wants anyone knowing too much about what could cause such events to happen or that they even did happen at other points in our history.

Thanks for your post, mojom. This is the kind of stuff I come to ATS looking for. Will return the favor soon, I hope.

If this isn't a hoax this is VERY interesting.

This has a video and a couple of audio files. (bottom of page)

Great link slank!!! Thanx for adding that in there!!

I'm listening to the Hutchison.wmv audio interview right now. Notice that he points out that according to the 'Publicly Released Version' and according to 'Their' story, (them being the Scientific Experts and Government Specialists, etc.), the results were just a fluke and not repeated, but in fact that is NOT TRUE. Which is exactly what I said earlier. He mentions specifically that the U.S. Government and Military as well as Canadian, German and even companies like Boeing are simply keeping the info and results from then till now secret for basically the same reasons they keep everything else secret.

He even mentions that since the first time it started happening, which he admits happened randomly, he now says that he's got a pretty good idea of what is happening as well as some bit of reliable control over the fields and how to manipulate them for repeated and intentional results!!!

now that is cool... though it does seem bending time and space is rather dangerous...

Yeah, I agree. Which is why making it exclusive and secret knowledge Big Cooperations and so called National Security Organizations(regardless of what government it is), and their habit of Black Ops, Wars, Totalitarianism, Corruption, Lying, Killing, etc. to me seems like a real bad idea.

I admit that there are many destructive and dangerous 'Average Folk' in the world who I don't think need to carry a gun in public. Yet, that same gun in the hands of a trained professional killer with a really shady track record doesn't make me feel any safer, if ya know what I mean.

After all, it isn't the average nerdy lone scientist, or paranoid militant living in the hills who Dropped Atomic Weapons all over the earth. Nor did the lone gunmen or occasional psycho invade and conquer another nation on his own. No, it was Big Groups of People under the control of Kings, Clergy, Empires, Generals, etc. that did those things.

John Hutchison is a fraud, a compulsive liar and a con-man.
Hutchison has never been able to duplicate his results in a controled environment.
