But Les Solomon had more magic to transmit. One of the stories he would tell, stories so outrageous that only a penny pincher of the imagination would complain of their improbability, was of the time he was exploring in pursuit of one of his "hobbies," pre-Columbian archeology. This required much time in jungles, "running around with Indians diging, pitching around in dirt . . . you know, finding things. It was from those Indians, Les Solomon insisted, that he learned the vital principle of vril, a power that allows you to move huge objects with very little force. . . . .
(Perhaps vril was the power that Ed Roberts was talking about when he realized that his Altair would give people the power of ten thousand pyramid-building Egyptians.) According to his story, Solomon met a venerable Brujo and asked if he might learn this power. Could the brujo teach him? And the brujo complied. . . .
Outside of SLAC were huge picnic tables with concrete bases. Solomon had the Homebrew people touch their hands on one of the tables, and he touched i, too. They simply had to think it would rise.
Lee Felsenstein later described the scene: "He'd said, 'Hey let me show you . . .' We were hanging on his every word, we'd do anything. So about six people surrounded the table, put their hands on. He put his hand on top, squinted his eyes and said, 'Let's go.'
And the table raised about a foot.
It rose like a harmonic motion, [as elegant as] a sine wave. It didn't feel heavy. It just happened."
Afterward even the participants, save Solomon, were not sure that it had really happened. . . .
Homebrew Club was sitting atop the power of vril.
"When one studies the origins of much of modern technology, one inevitable comes across some sort of spirit guidance leading the inventor towards their "great idea". Medical scientist Andrija Puharich,holder of more than 50 patents, gave his opinion about these strange inspirations.
"I am personally convinced that superior beings from other spaces and other times have initiated arenewed dialogue with humanity. While I do not doubt [their existence] ... I do not know what theirgoals are with respect to humankind." [Andrija Puharich, Uri: A Journal of the Mystery of Uri Geller
(NewYork, 1975), p. 213....
One of the most famous examples of this is Chester Carlson (1906-1968), inventor of the Xeroxphotocopying process, who received guidance for his invention from the spirit world. By the fall of 1938,Carlson's wife had convinced him that his experiments needed to be conducted elsewhere.
He rented aroom on the second floor of a house owned by his mother-in-law at 32-05 37th Street in Astoria,Queens. He hired an assistant, Otto Kornei, an out-of-work Austrian physicist. Chester Carlson devotedlong hours to meditation at the behest of his wife in order to develop his psychic abilities and conversewith the other side. He thoroughly believed that he received the knowledge necessary to create hisbreakthrough photocopying method from the spirit realm!
The world's oldest computer has been resurrected and rebuilt.
'The Witch' was first designed in 1949 as part of Britain's atomic energy research effort.
It first ran in 1951, under the name 'Harwell Dekatron' after the valves that it used to store information.
While it was slow - it took around 10 seconds to multiply two numbers - it was able to be used for long periods, often up to 80 hours per week, according to the BBC.
A pre-programmed cruise missile not too different from a drone has been proven to be capable of blasting out an EMP-type microwave that was able to destroy personal computers and electrical systems inside a building over which it was flying.
The U.S. Air Force and its contractor Boeing have created the High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project, or CHAMP, which was just tested over a Utah desert.
It’s a project of Boeing’s Phantom Works team and the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory Directed Energy Directorate, along with Raytheon Ktech, which supplied the high power microwave, or HPM.
The action of the high power microwave has the same effect as an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, from either a high-altitude exploded nuclear weapon or a massive solar storm, but not with their intensity. Following the first target, the cruise missile then was guided to six other targets, resulting in knocking out all electronics.
All of this also is similar to another U.S. Air Force-developed weapon based on a type of radar called the active electronically scanned array, or AESA.
Philosophy, Alchemy, and Science are forever inextricably linked. Philosophy fathered the scientific principle as we all know.
