Phil: They made you too energetic.


Joe: Gold tuned people down. They also found they could put magnetite in various different papers and around the place and found that people were calmer. One thing that Bobo and Mike Schell did was experimentation for NASA. You remember when John Glenn went up then returned with what was called a magnetic deficiency? He busted his head falling down, etc. They found out that all the astronauts that go up now have magnetic oxide inside their suits in order to keep down the deficiency. Linemen, who are working on high voltage electricity, now they are incorporating magnetic iron oxide in their clothing.


Phil: They are all wearing a shatnez now. It is a paramagnetic vest. It stimulates the immune system. It gets your immune system so high that nothing can touch you. Like I said, just carry a paramagnetic rock in our pocket and you would be healthy all your life.


Joe: Once I got your CGS meter on the Arizona rock, then I could go where the quartz and the magnet run together. It went around at eddies, where the water would turn and the heavy parts would fall out. I would mine the stuff right there. At that point, I could get every single one of them and put them in the meter and they would be 19,000 plus.


Phil: Sure, well the meter only went up to forty or something.


Joe: It came by the number ten. The last one that came by said ten magnification. I got a couple of those. I had to clean off the tape before I got that one.


Phil: The first one only went up to 2,000. I got calls back from people, especially out here where the soil is 2,000. They couldn’t hardly use it, because it was already at 2,000. So I had to redesign it and bring it up to 40,000 or whatever it is now. I didn’t have any trouble changing. I got an electro-engineer  who  just  switched  the  lead  circuits  in  it.  The  biggest



commercial meters cost $6,000. They said it was because it was so hard to wind the coils. I found out you could send to Germany and get the coils wound for $50.00 each.


Joe: The first one I ever saw was from Patrick Flanagan. He bought it from some German company. He had $6,000 in it. When I got one of yours, it was better than his.


Phil: Mine was a lot better than the commercial ones. Bob Pike was an engineer. He took my circuit design and put it together perfectly.


Joe: Christopher Bird did a story on this. The last thing he was going to do was he was going to put together a water filtration deal. He believed that paramagnetics was the answer to the water.


Phil: When was the date of that trial?


Joe: I’ve got it all at home.


Phil: I would have been there and done those people in.


Joe: I believe you would have. Bruce Halstead gave me that out of his own library. He signed his name.


Phil: He signed it. This is great. This is from a private library. Let’s see what the date is on it. Private library 1991, that’s over ten years ago. I knew it had been out for quite some time.


Joe: He incorporated paramagnetics in some of the things he was doing in the last part. He believed that by using DMSO, paramagnetics and camphor, you could stimulate the immune system from the outside of the skin to the inside. You didn’t have to inject anything.


Phil: You didn’t have to inject it because the DMSO goes directly into



your skin.


Joe: The last thing Halstead did was introduce oxygen to DMSO to oxygenate it. When he oxygenated it, it took the taste away and it didn’t have that crappy taste. They changed it to MSM.


Phil: I can take this paramagnetic dirt and put it in something that tastes real lousy and it would come out tasting good. It always switches it from a bad taste to a good one.


Joe: I can take water and put it inside the hyperbaric chamber, bring it up to three atmospheres and leave it there overnight. When you cap the water and take it out, it is living water.


Phil: The ancients knew a lot about this as a healing thing. All the old stone circles and stone structures, I need to write a book about them because I have photographs of them. I have copies of these stone structures. They are all around.


Joe: When you put a person in the hyperbaric chamber, it is an iron chamber, you are getting the orgone effect too. You can take the magnetic iron oxide crystal, lay it in the sun, a pad of them, and put them inside the chamber with you, with quartz crystals in those and let the sun charge them. I found out when you take them out of there, you always have to put them under an ultraviolet light to get off any sweat or anything that’s coming off of the person. It could smell real bad because you sweat. You put them back in the chamber with them and raise it up and let them breathe pure oxygen. Man, you’ve got them going.


Phil: It makes them smell sweet again.


Joe: What do you think about putting people on a teaspoon full of magnetite or a few capsules of magnetite before you put them in the chamber?



Phil: I think that would probably triple or quadruple the effect of the chamber. Paramagnetism amplifies whatever is good and kills whatever is bad. Whatever poisons are in your body, it does away with and whatever is good, it enhances. It enhances all the vitamins in the body. But if you have some arsenic from the soil or something that’s not too good for you, it gets rid of it. If you go back and read the old literature, you begin to understand that Easter Island, where the big statures are.. those are healing statues. The body is a natural antenna. The statue is a natural antenna. You can put a small amplifier on it and pick up a radio signal a lot better than you can with a metal antenna. The statue is like a natural antenna.


Joe: That doctor from Japan, Higgins’ friend, has found the structured water. Your mind can structure to water. Dr. Tori told me that your mind has to be present and you have to have the right thoughts in order to structure the water. There is a doctor in France at the Pasteur Institute whose name was Jacques Benveniste. He wrote a book on water called “The Memory of Water”.


The concept of the memory of water goes back to 1988 when the late Professor Jacques Benveniste published, in the international scientific journal Nature, claims that extremely high ‘ultramolecular’ dilutions of an antibody had effects in the human basophil degranulation test, a laboratory model of immune response.
In other words, the water diluent ‘remembered’ the antibody long after it was gone. His findings were subsequently denounced as ‘pseudoscience’ and yet, despite the negative impact this had at the time, the idea has not gone away.

In a special issue of Homeopathy, scientists from the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, USA as well as the UK present remarkably convergent views from groups using entirely different methods, indicating that large-scale structural effects can occur in liquid water, and can increase with time. Such effects might account for claims of memory of water effects(source: Elsevier)




Jacques Benveniste ( 12 March 1935 – 3 October 2004) was a French immunologist born in Paris.


In 1979, he published a well-known paper on the structure of platelet-activating factor and its relationship with histamine. He was head of allergy and inflammation immunology at the French biomedical research agency INSERM.

In 1988, Benveniste published a paper in Nature describing the action of very high dilutions of anti-IgE antibody on the degranulation of human basophils, findings that seemed to support the concept of homeopathy. After the article was published, a follow-up investigation was set up by a team including John Maddox, James Randi and Walter Stewart.


With the cooperation of Benveniste’s own team, the group failed to replicate the original results, and subsequent investigations did not support Benveniste’s findings.


Benveniste refused to retract, damaging his reputation and forcing him to fund research himself, as external sources of funding were withdrawn. In 1997, he founded the company DigiBio to “develop and commercialise applications of Digital Biology.” Benveniste died in 2004 in Paris following heart surgery.






Phil: I’ve heard of the book.


Joe: I spent ten days with him in Hawaii where we talked about this for a long time. It got to where he can speak pretty good English. We got along really well. He was telling me that when you magnetize the water, the water can take on its memories. But, if you distill the water and it is completely dead, then you don’t have the living properties of the water.


Phil: That’s right. If you distil it, there is nothing in it. It’s just pure H2O and it is not what nature had in mind. Water is filled with minerals and vitamins and many other things. If a buttefly wants to live a long time, it stops at a muddy puddle and takes a drink. You’ll always find butterflies all around the country where it’s drying out and there are mud puddles.. filled  with  butterflies.


Joe: But you won’t find them drinking the water that’s in a stream.


Phil: No, they won’t drink the stream water at all. They will always drink from the mud puddles. They won’t go near a clear stream.


Joe: Like the people in India, the pregnant women that take these little mud balls.


Phil: Well, not so long ago, my mother who died at 89 was really quite healthy. During her pregnancy, she would go dig some clay out of the garden and eat it. She was part Indian. That’s why we are shaped the way we are. My ancestors founded New Mexico. (San Juan) He was the first governor of New Mexico.


Joe: A few years back we did the whole de Anza Trail.


Phil: This was my great great great grandfather. Everybody said well he wasn’t even married. Well, of  course not.. he had a couple of Indian squaws and didn’t bother getting married. He was quite a character. He was a Colonel in the Spanish army that came over to Mexico City, came north up the de Anza Trail to settle in Santa Fe. He’s my great great great grandfather.


Joe: Those pressurized balls. I call them the Langévin balls because Paul Langévin is the one that actually showed you how. If you want to put them under pressure, you just dry them. I use pascalite clay as the binder. I place a drop of sodium silicate on a disk that’s laying on an angle.. going around and around. That’s why they’re different sizes. Then I drop the magnetite and I have been sonically grinding sapphites that I got from India. I get them at the rock show in Tucson. I grind them up and mix them in it. That makes them very hard. If you take a ball like that and rake it across glass, it will score it just like a diamond.

Langevin, Paul



(b. Paris, France, 23 January 1872; d. Paris, 19 December 1946)


Langevin, the second son of Victor Langevin, an appraiser-verifier in the Montmartre section of Paris, very early displayed his liking for study. His mother, great-grandniece of the alienist Philippe Pinel, encouraged this inclination; and Langevin was always first in his class from the time he entered the École Lavoisier until he left the École Municipale de Physique et Chimie Industrielles de la Ville de Paris in 1891. (The latter school was established in 1881 by Paul Schützenberger to train engineers.) Langevin’s enthusiasm was aroused by his contact with the school’s director and by his laboratory work, which was supervised by Pierre Curie.

To further his knowledge Langevin attended the Sorbonne (1891-1893) while teaching a private course and learning Latin on his own. In 1893 he placed first in the competitive entrance examination for the École Normale Superérieure, but he did a year of military service before attending the school. At the École Normale Supéerieure he heard the lectures of Marcel Brillouin and undertook research with Jean Perrin (then an agrégé-préparateur). Langevin placed first in the competition for the agrégation in physical sciences in 1897 and left for Cambridge to spend a year at the Cavendish Laboratory with J. J. Thomson. Under Thomson’s direction, he worked on ionization by X rays, in the process discovering, independently of Sagnac, that X rays liberate secondary electrons from metals. Also while at the Cavendish he met J. Townsend, E. Rutherford, and C. T. R. Wilson: all of them soon became friends.

Upon returning to Paris, Langevin established a home (1898). He had four children: Jean (b. 1899), André(b. 1901)—both of whom became physicists—Madeleine (b. 1903), and Hélè (b. 1909). Still on scholarship, he was obliged to continue to give private lessons.

During this period the atmosphere in the Paris laboratories was one of intense excitement. At Jean Perrins’s laboratory Langevin continued his investigations of the secondary effects of X rays and, on close terms with the Curies, he was present at the birth of the study of radioactivity. Langevin completed his doctoral dissertation in 1902 at the Sorbonne. It dealth with ionized gases and was based on investigations he had begun at Cambridge. After being named Préparateur to Edmond Bouty at the Sorbonne, Langevin entered the Collége de France in 1902 to substitute for E. E. N. Mascart, whom he replaced in 1909. Meanwhile, he thought also at the École Municipale de Physique et Chimie, succeeding Pierre Curie (1904), and then at the école Nationale Supérieure de Jeunes filles (Sévres), replacing Marie Curie, who had been widowed (1906). Langevin loved teaching, and he excelled at it.

In his laboratory at the Collège de France, Langevin continued to study ions in gases, liquids, and dielectrics (1902-1913). In this work he was assisted by his students, including Edmond Bauer, Eugene Bloch, and Marcel Moulin. In his dissertation he had already given a method of calculating the mobility of both positive and negative ions during their passage through a condenser by considering their diffusion and recombination. Moreover, for the first time he communicated his results concerning secondary X rays (1898). Langevin was never in a hurry to publish; his written work is scanty in relation to the extent of his work. Whether it was a question of theory, of experimental results, or even of techniques or apparatus, he spent a long time seeking a simple and clear statement; often his publisher would snatch from him a manuscript filled with changes written in his clear, firm hand.

Langevin’s position at the Collège de France was of particular importance to his development, for it freed him to lecture on subjects for which the standard French curriculum had little place. Although he continued after his arrival there to involve himself deeply with the experimental work of students, his own research and teaching turned increasingly to contemporary problems in theoretical physics. For most of the thirty years after he assumed the chair, he was the leading, and at times virtually the only, practitioner and expositor of modern mathematical physics in France. Einstein caught his role and status precisely when he wrote:

Langevin’s scientific thought displayed an extraordinary clarity and vivacity combined with a quick and sure intuition for the essential point. Because of those qualities, his courses exerted a decisive influence on more than a generation of French theoretical physicists. … It seems to me certain that he would have developed the special theory of relativity if that had not been done elsewhere, for he had clearly recognized its essential points.1

The last portion of that evaluation is in part a response to Langevin’s first published theoretical papers, presented during 1904 and 1905. They dealt perceptively and authoritatively with a coherent set of current problems developed in the work of Lorentz, Larmor, and Abraham: the concept of electromagnetic mass, its rate of increase with velocity, and the related contraction hypotheses which suggested the impossibility in principle of determining the earth’s motion through the ether. Both reports from his students and the speed with he assimilated the special theory of relativity after 1905 suggest in addition that Langevin’s own thoughts, at least on the relation between mass and energy, were developing along lines close to Einstein’s before the latter’s work appeared in 1905.2

That same year is the one in which Langevin published what was perhaps his most original and enduring contribution to physical theory, a quantitative account of paramagnetism and diamagnetism which demonstrated, he said, that it was “possible, using the electron hypothesis, to give precise meaning to the ideas [molecular models] of Ampère and Weber.”3

To account for paramagnetism Langevin assumed that each molecule had a permanent magnetic moment m due to the circulation of one or more electrons. In the absence of an external field, thermal motion would orient the moments of individual molecules at random, so that there would be no net field. An external field, however, would tend to align molecular moments, the extent of the alignment depending both on the field strength and on the intensity of the thermal motion, the latter determined by temperature. Applying Boltzmann’s techniques to the problem, Langevin showed that for low fields the magnetic permeability of a gas should be given by μ = m2N/3kT, where N is the number of molecules per unit volume, K is Boltzmann’s constant, and T is the absolute temperature.

The proportionality of susceptibility to the reciprocal of temperature was, Langevin emphasized, a result which Pierre Curie had found experimentally in 1895. Using the latter’s measurement of the proportionality constant, he noted further that the observed susceptibility of oxygen could be accounted for by the orbital motion of even a single electron with velocity 2 • 108 cm/sec. At this time atoms were usually thought to consist of many hundreds of electrons. That so few were needed to explain magnetic properties suggested to Langevin that the electrons with this function might well be the superficial ones, i.e, the valence electrons, which were responsible also for chemical properties. Niels Bohr, whose route to the quantized version of Rutherford’s atomic model was deeply influenced by Langevin, was to suggest precisely the same correlation.4

The even more puzzling phenomenon of diamagnetism Langevin explained in terms of molecules within which the orbital electronic motions canceled each other, so that no net molecular moment remained. An increasing magnetic field would, however, accelerate the electrons moving in one direction and retard those moving in the other, thus producing a small net moment in a direction opposed to the field. Again Langevin’s treatment was quantitative. It predicted that, as Curie had found, diamagnetic susceptibility should be independent of temperature, and it permitted computation of plausible values for the radii of electronic orbits. As a tool for investigating both magnetism and molecular and atomic structure, Langevin’s impressive theory was vigorously developed by a number of physicists, especially Pierre Weiss, and Langevin was himself invited to discuss its current state at the famous first Solvay Congress in 1911.

Three years before that, in 1908, Langevin, whose skill in kinetic theory had first been developed when he worked on ionic transport, turned briefly to the theory of Brownian motion developed by Einstein in 1905 and, via a more direct route, by Smoluchowski in 1906. The result was simplified, still-standard treatment which, unlike Smoluchowski’s, produced precisely Einstein’s formula for the mean-square displacement. Subsequently Langevin took up the subject of thermodynamics and reconsidered its basic notions, starting from theories of Boltzmann and of Planck (“the physics of the discontinuous”) in 1913. At the same time he presented “the notions of time, space, and causality” with their relativistic significance. It required much difficult work to arrive at these elucidations; but he presented them simply, sometimes humorously (for example, Jules Verne’s cannonball [1911] and Langevin’s rocket or cannonball [1912]).

Although Langevin concerned himself with philosophical questions, he did not neglect the technical applications of his work. In 1914 he wa called upon to work on ballistic problems and was later requested by Maurice de Broglie, his reiend and former student, to find a way of detecting submerged enemy submarines. Lord Rayleigh and O. W. Richardson (1912) had thought of employing ultrasonic waves. In France a Russian engineer, Chilowski, proposed to the navy a device based on this principle; but its intensity was much too weak. In less than three years Langevin succeeded in providing adequate amplification by means of piezoelectricity. His team called the steel-quartz-steel triplet he developed a “Langevin sandwich.” Functioning by resonance, it “finally played for ultrasonic waves the same roles as the antenna in radio engineering.” Langevin continued to do important work in acoustics and ultrasonics after the war.

Langevin received many honors. In 1915 he was honored by the Royal Society of London, and in 1928 he became a member of that body (he had still not been elected to the Académie des Sciences). He was elected to many other foreign academies and to the Académie de Marine in Paris. His relativistic views still appeared revolutionary: he had invited Michelson and Einstein to speak at the Collège de France as early as 1922. Then came the theories of Louis de Brogile. Langevin, at first surprised, soon became their strongest advocate (1924). The Académie des Sciences elected Louis de Broglie in 1933 and Langevin in 1934. In writing his “Notice,” Langevin relived forty years during which he had constantly contributed to deepening our understanding of the universe.

Internationally Langevin’s influene became paramount in 1928, when he succeeded H. A.Lorentz as president of the Solvay International Physics Institute, of which he had been a member since 1921. On his initiative a message of sympathy was sent in 1933 to Einstein, who was already being persecuted by the Nazis.

As passionate in his concern for justice as in his quest for truth, in this period Langevin joined various movements supporting victims of fascism and, denouncing the horrors of war, actively participated in campaigns aimed at securing peace. To his mind the same enemy—reaction—opposed the new seientific theories, the modernization of teaching, individual liberty, and the spirit of brotherhood.

When war broke out, Langevin testified in favor of the forty-four Communist deputies excluded from their seats following the signing of the German-Soviet pact. In March-April 1940 he was invited by the navy to direct research on ultrasonic depth finders.

After the departure of the French government from Paris, Langevin again became director of the École Municipal de Physique et Chimie Industrielles (the duties of that office having already been delegated to him); but on 30 October 1940 he was arrested by the Wehrmacht. Dismissed by the Vichy government and imprisoned in Fresnes, he ws finally placed under house arrest in Troyes. Messages of sympathy came to him from all over the world. Peter Kapitza invited Langevin to join him in the Soviet Union, but Langevin refused to leave France. Resigned, and surrounded by devoted friends, he resumed his calculations. He then learned of the execution of his son-in-law, the physicist Jacques Solomon (1942), and of the arrest and deportation of his daughter, Hélène Solomon-Langevin (1943). Fearing for his safety, his young friends Frédéric Joliot, H. Moureu, Denivelle, and P. Biquard persuaded Langevin to flee in May 1944. Warmly welcomed in Switzerland, he worked on educational reform for postwar France.

As early as 1904 Langevin had denounced the obstacles to progress found in scientific instruction in the form of “ossifying dogmas” that hinder the recognition of “fruitful principles”—such as rational mechanics vis-à-vis he atomic theory. Faithful to his own thought, the reprinted this article (“L’esprit de L’enseignement scientifique”) in 1923. He took up the same theme again in the hope that liberated France would direct its youth along progressive paths in thought and action, and inculcate in them the notions indispensable to philosophers and technicians alike.

After returning to the École Municipale de Physique et Chimie Industrielles in October 1944, Langevin devoted his greatest efforts to educational reforms and to the support of his political friends. His daughter Hélène, returned from Auschwitz, sat in the Assemblée Consultative. He joined her as a member of the Communist Party—several members of which were also members of the government—in the hope of encouraging a brotherhood that capitalism had not succeeded in establishing.

Langevin died following a brief illness. The govenment, which had made a grand officer of the Legion of Honor, accorded him a state funeral. his remains were transferred to the Pantheon in 1948 at the same time as those of Jean Perrin.

Phil: I take paramagnetic rock and mix it with Elmer’s glue to bind it.


The glue is diamagnetic and the rock is paramagnetic, so you have the perfect medium.


Joe: Elmer’s glue is a hoof glue isn’t it?


Phil: Yeah, Elmer’s glue is made out of hooves. It’s made out of horses hooves. They used to use horses for dog food and the hooves for glue.


Joe: So you get the yin and the yang.


Phil: You have got the yin and the yang. Elmer’s glue is one of the best things to make anything. You can mix paramagnetic rock with Elmer’s glue and make statues.


Joe: If you took magnetite, a little bit of quartz and Elmer’s glue, and painted over a house, you would actually have a Faraday cage, wouldn’t you?


Phil: Yeah, that’s actually what this is. (Phil scratches the wall). It’s slightly paramagnetic. So this house is a real energetic house. It’s very relaxing.


Joe: It’s a Faraday cage. This is something I didn’t tell you. The old Spaniards when they were making the adobes, they killed animals and what they’d do is lure them in with salt licks. When they killed the animals, they would take the blood out and mix it in the adobes. Now, you have a paramagnetic adobe block.


Phil: There’s all of the round towers in Ireland. If you go back and read about the monks in ancient Latin, they always mixed the cement with oxen blood. They would take six or seven oxen to build a round tower and slaughter them to put it all into the mortar. Those towers are sitting on the ground with no foundation or anything and have been standing there for fifteen hundred years. There are still forty of them left. Most of them have been struck by lightening. There were originally about a hundred and fifty of them. Forty remain in perfect condition. They have been sitting on the ground with no foundation or anything for that long.


Joe: It’s almost antigravity, isn’t it?


Phil: Antigravity. It is. The force of the paramagnetism in the oxygen reacts with the force of the paramagnetism in the earth.


Joe: So, in earthquake country, if you poured your foundation with magnetite in it, it would never fall.


Phil: It would never fall. There are tower houses in Japan and also in Ireland and England which would be damaged in earthquakes. But the tower houses never fall down.


Joe: What if they took these piers and the bridges and put a shell around the outside of them using magnetite impregnated cement?


Phil: It would make it a lot stronger. It would stand up a lot better in an earthquake. That’s what they should do in San Francisco.


Joe: I was looking for gold in Brazil and ran into Bruce Halstead who was there looking for green medicine. You, however, were down there just for the pure science aspect.


Phil: Yeah, I was just down there learning about the headhunters. I already knew a little bit about them, but I learned a lot more about them. They were well aware of paramagnetism. They had a magic word for it. They knew all about it.


Joe: Some of those women down there knew all about poisons.



Phil: Oh Go, yeah. They had drugs down there. They could take drugs out of a plant and you wouldn’t know what it was.


Joe: Have you ever noticed how the men treat their women when they all know of about those poisons?


Phil: Yeah.


Joe: They treat them real nice. No one is beating anyone.


Phil: They have great respect for their women. There is none of this tribal stuff that goes on as with some tribes where women are second rate. With the headhunters, the women are equal with the men. The men consider them their equals. The ones I knew were called the Ashiari and they were remarkable. I guess I was the first one to ever come across them. I came across them at the Hagramona River which means River of the Tapers. I got in the canoe. My wife never worries about me, but everyone else was telling her, “He’s not going to come back. He’s not going to come back.” She just laughed. She thought it was funny. She knew darn well I was coming back because the headhunters were the friendliest people. In fact, they were over friendly. They couldn’t do enough for you. They were so friendly it was nauseating. They were always around you doing something for you.


Joe: I told his wife one time about you that you’re a very even tempered person. I’ve never seen you get mad. She said, “Just make your card out. Just mention Monsanto to him.”


Phil: Yeah, they have probably done more to destroy people in this country than anyone else. They’re a big corporation.


Joe: What do you think about these new genes that they’re trying to make calling them “terminator seeds”?



Phil: All that research is just funded by the devil is what it is. There is a devil, and it is funded by the devil. It’s evil spirits in Indian literature.


Joe: You took a picture one time of a little old man or woman praying in the church with the light rays coming through the window that bent. I never could understand what bent.


Phil: Well, the light coming through travels in a straight line, but it’s traveling through oxygen. When people get into a meditative state, they become so highly paramagnetic it pulls the oxygen down. The only way you can see light is if it has particles in it. So light has to have particles of dust, which means the light beam carries paramagnetic properties. You cannot see a laser beam if there is no dust or smoke in the air. So the dust or smoke, or whatever it is, is paramagnetic. So, when someone starts praying, it kind of bends it down. There is a scientific explanation for all of this stuff. What the ancients called “magic” is a science.


Joe: What do you think about all these paintings of the saints depicted with auras around their bodies? Do you think that is paramagnetic?


Phil: Yeah, sure it is. They are so close to God, that their brains actually give off photon coherent light. Because it is coherent, it is real bright. You’ll notice that although it is painted as yellow in pictures, it is never really yellow, it is white. It is perfectly white as white as this wall. It is pure rays of white light.


Joe: This lady that was in India, Mother Theresa, she came to Phoenix and I went up and looked at her. I don’t know if it was just me, or the way the light was, but it looked like she had a radiance around her.


Phil: Yeah, I met her assistant and the assistant had the same sort of radiance around her. She had a blue and white gown on.


Joe: The Dahli Lama comes to Tucson every once in a while. He has a feld and two or three of the people around him that are real close have it.


Phil: Where is he living?


Joe: Well, he stays in California a lot. He has a colony in Tucson at Catalina and they come through. He was very close to a fellow that did a lot of research on Reis monkeys and imported all the Reis  monkeys during the test. His name was Tom Slick. Have you ever heard of Tom Slick?


He owned the Flying Tigers and the Young General (inaudible). He was killed in a plane crash. But he was working on this paramagnetic iron with me for a while. While he was alive, I got a thousand dollars a month every month to experiment to teach with it. We got very close.


Phil: He was quite a guy. I didn’t realize he was killed.


Joe: He was killed in a plane crash just outside of Phoenix. The thing I handed you there, on the last part was a little bit about us when he was working in Tucson.


Phil: He was a stunt flyer.


Joe: He did a little of everything. He was a wealthy old man on his own. He would have a big circus tent down in Dallas and he would invite all kinds of nutty people. They would come in and he would have his secretary go around and take notes on what they were talking about. There were some real nuts. There were some guys who were going to build boats made out of ice. They were really way out.


Phil: They had a big party and everybody was drinking and there were all kinds of good food.


Joe: He was sort of a lesser well known “Howard Hughes”. You’ve got a couple of hummingbirds that went right by the window.



Phil: Yeah, we have a feeder out there. They head for it.


Joe: Halstead was into birds. When he died, he had probably fifty different birds, big birds in cages from all over including South America. The kids divided them all up and took them to other places. They made a lot of noise and I don’t know if any of them survived. I think there were a few in the cage at the Center. He never got into computerization. He did all his work by longhand and typed things out.


Phil: That’s like me. I’ve never used a computer.


Joe: He has hundreds of thousands of things on record that he has done in his lifetime. Every time I go over there, I take $400 or $500 and they let me take anything out that I want and copy it. I’ve copied everything on HBO  [hyperbaric  oxygen].  I’ve  copied  almost  everything  they  had  on cancer. I’ve copied all of Royal Rife’s stuff. I’ve copied all of Gersten’s stuff. I’ve copied everything he had on the files. When I die, they’re going to have a party or a yard sale. None of my kids are interested in any of that. I can’t get any of them interested in it. They go to college, they get an education, and they’re school teachers. And you know something Doctor, they will make of fip doing that. But the teachers aren’t teachers anymore.


Phil: That’s not true. My son is fascinated by this stuff. One of my daughter’s is too. She teaches English in Mexico City. She’s fascinated by it.


Joe: What’s happening to the general public is what I’m talking about.

I’m talking about everybody, my own kids.


Phil: I don’t know. It’s TV. They put the same thing on. I sit there and watch TV and after about 10 minutes, I get up and come in here and start reading because it’s the same thing over and over and over. It’s all violence. There’s so much violence in this country.. that’s called imprinting. They are imprinting people with all of this.



Joe: I think anyone who has ever read the complete works of O’Henry has seen every damn TV program that has ever been on.


Phil: Yeah, there was no plot that he didn’t plot. If you read O’Henry, you’ve got all of them. But on TV it’s the same thing over and over again. It gets boring watching it after a while. CSI is not too bad because it’s a good detective story. They ought to go back to Sherlock Holmes.


Joe: And yet, he was on drugs.


Phil: Yeah, he was on drugs. He was a cocaine addict. Sherlock Holmes was the character, and O’Connell actually wrote it. O’Connell was a drug addict, so of course he had to put Sherlock Holmes on drugs too.


Joe: I don’t think drugs are as bad as tobacco. I think tobacco is the worst thing in the world.


Phil: I agree with you. It killed my father. He was a chain smoker. He was an old cowboy and would roll his own. He came from Terre Haute, Indiana, but he spent most of his life in Texas and New Mexico. He was a car salesman and all of his customers were cowboys. He was a cowboy himself. He was a great rider. He had a horse called “Big Red” that could jump a ten foot fence. He was in the army cavalry. He died in 1963 from smoking. He kept smoking cigarettes all his life. He rolled his own and smoked them and finally got heart trouble then died.


Joe: Well, I think tobacco is one of the worst things there is. It kills four hundred thousand a year at least.


Phil: Oh yeah, at least it’s gone way down because the young people don’t smoke like they used to. When I was growing up, everybody smoked except for me.


Joe: I went to Salem, South Carolina and went to a factory there to see how they were making tobacco. They don’t do it the way they used to. They take the whole stalk, the stem and everything and they throw it in a shaker and shake the stuff off of it and grind it all up. Then they run it like newspaper through rollers. They save the juice that’s squeezed out, take shredded newspaper and add the juice back to it at the levels needed. They have stuff in barrels from Turkey that is also added. They call it deer tongue. Then they spray it with petroleum so it won’t go off. Then they favor it with brown sugar to make it sweet. These people don’t even know what they’re getting.


Phil: No, they’re getting a big mixture of poisons.


Joe: Every bug in the world avoids tobacco. But, when a commercial poison doesn’t work, they just add another one and  another one and another one. They have four or fve poisons on them.


Phil: Sure, it’s a conglomeration of fifty or sixty poisons.


Joe: And all these bugs can build up an immunity to this stuff.


Phil: It’s really bad to inhale cigarettes. Cigars are not so bad because they’re pretty natural. They just take the tobacco and roll it up. But even that is not right anymore because now they spray the tobacco with chemicals. The FDA said they had to quit spraying tobacco because the insecticides are ruining the biological controls. The insecticide business has been done in by people like me. It’s all biologically controlled now.


Joe: What about mad cow? Do you think it’s just a mineral deficiency?


Phil: It’s parathian poisoning. The cure for the warble fly was to take parathian and rub it into the wound. Think how stupid that is. Parathian is a censroide, which means your nervous system goes kaput. Censroide is the chemical that keeps your nerve endings working. So if you foul up


( admin note, there are many errors in this document in regard to spelling of Names, Dates, Places, I am correcting that all, most of it anyway , so , in this case it is not parathian but it is parathion ) 

Parathion, also called parathion-ethyl or diethyl parathion and locally[clarification needed] known as “Folidol“, is an organophosphate insecticide and acaricide. It was originally developed by IG Farben in the 1940s. It is highly toxic to non-target organisms, including humans, so its use has been banned or restricted in most countries. The basic structure is shared by parathion methyl.[5]



Bottle with E605

Parathion was developed by Gerhard Schrader for the German trust IG Farben in the 1940s. After World War II and the collapse of IG Farben due to the war crime trials, the Western allies seized the patent, and parathion was marketed worldwide by different companies and under different brand names. The most common German brand was E605 (banned in Germany after 2002); this was not a food-additive “E number” as used in the EU today. “E” stands for Entwicklungsnummer (German for “development number”). It is an irreversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor.

Safety concerns have later led to the development of parathion methyl, which is somewhat less toxic.

In the EU, Parathion was banned after 2001. [6] In Switzerland, the substance is no longer approved as a pesticide.

Handling properties[edit]

Pure parathion is a white crystalline solid. It is commonly distributed as a brown liquid that smells of rotting eggs or garlic. The insecticide is somewhat stable, although it darkens when exposed to sunlight.

Industrial synthesis[edit]

Parathion is synthesized from diethyl dithiophosphoric acid (C2H5O)2PS2H by chlorination to generate diethylthiophosphoryl chloride ((C2H5O)2P(S)Cl), and then the chloride is treated with sodium 4-nitrophenolate (the sodium salt of 4-nitrophenol).[7]

2 (C2H5O)2P(S)SH + 3 Cl2 → 2 (C2H5O)2P(S)Cl + S2Cl2 + 2 HCl
(C2H5O)2P(S)Cl + NaOC6H4NO2 → (C2H5O)2P(S)OC6H4NO2 + NaCl


As a pesticide, parathion is generally applied by spraying. It is often applied to cottonrice and fruit trees. The usual concentrations of ready-to-use solutions are 0.05 to 0.1%. The chemical is banned for use on many food crops.

Insecticidal activity

Parathion acts on the enzyme acetylcholinesterase indirectly. After an insect (or a human) ingests parathion, an oxidase replaces the double bonded sulfur with oxygen to give paraoxon.[8]

(C2H5O)2P(S)OC6H4NO2 + 1/2 O2 → (C2H5O)2P(O)OC6H4NO2 + S

The phosphate ester is more reactive in organisms than the phosphorothiolate ester, as the phosphorus atoms become much more electropositive.[8]


Degradation of parathion leads to more water-soluble products. Hydrolysis, which deactivates the molecule, occurs at the aryl ester bond resulting in diethyl thiophosphate and 4-nitrophenol.[8]

(C2H5O)2P(S)OC6H4NO2 + H2O → HOC6H4NO2 + (C2H5O)2P(S)OH

Degradation proceeds differently under anaerobic conditions: the nitro group on parathion is reduced to the amine.

(C2H5O)2P(S)OC6H4NO2 + 6 H → (C2H5O)2P(S)OC6H4NH2 + 2 H2O


Parathion is a cholinesterase inhibitor. It generally disrupts the nervous system by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase. It is absorbed via skin, mucous membranes, and orally. Absorbed parathion is rapidly metabolized to paraoxon, as described in Insecticidal activity. Paraoxon exposure can result in headachesconvulsions, poor vision, vomiting, abdominal pain, severe diarrheaunconsciousnesstremordyspnea, and finally lung-edema as well as respiratory arrest. Symptoms of poisoning are known to last for extended periods, sometimes months. The most common and very specific antidote is atropine, in doses of up to 100 mg daily. Because atropine may also be toxic, it is recommended that small frequently repeated doses be used in treatment. If human poisoning is detected early and the treatment is prompt (atropine and artificial respiration), fatalities are infrequent. Insufficient oxygen will lead to cerebral hypoxia and permanent brain damage. Peripheral neuropathy including paralysis is noticed as late sequelae after recovery from acute intoxication. Parathion and related organophosphorus pesticides are used in hundreds of thousands of poisonings annually, especially suicides.[9] It is known as Schwiegermuttergift (mother-in-law poison) in Germany. For this reason, most formulations contain a blue dye providing warning.

Parathion was used as a chemical warfare agent, most notably by an element of the British South Africa Police (BSAP) attached to the Selous Scouts during the Rhodesian Bush War. They used it to poison clothing that was then supplied to anti-government guerrillas. When the enemy soldiers put on the clothes, they were poisoned by absorption through the skin.[10][11][12]

Based on animal studies, parathion is considered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to be a possible human carcinogen.[13] Studies show that parathion is toxic to fetuses, but does not cause birth defects.[14]

It is classified by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) as a persistent organic pollutant[citation needed] and by the World Health Organization (WHO) as Toxicity Class Ia (extremely hazardous).[citation needed]

Parathion is toxic to beesfishbirds, and other forms of wildlife.[14]



your censroides, you become a nervous wreck. Someday they’ll  learn about Parkinson’s disease with these people. It’s probably from messed up censestorids from smoking.

( Admin note, again, there are of course dozens of other reasons, nano, gmo, and a whole range of other issues )

Joe: I’ll get you some paperwork. I met Dr. Joel Wallach. He wrote “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie”. He was a veterinarian who said, “If I treated people the way the doctors taught me to treat them, as a medical doctor, I would be out of business. If you couldn’t treat arthritis and you couldn’t treat Alzheimer’s in a cow, the cow is unable to access medicinal food. I do real good with the animals that I treat.” He’s done a paper on Alzheimer’s and he’s getting me a copy. I’m getting to be slow on memory.

Phil: Sure, I am too.


Joe: Sometimes I’ll get out driving and go right past the place where I’m supposed to go. And I’m thinking about something else.


Phil: You’re thinking about something something else is why.


Joe: But I am getting slower. I had a heart problem and they put two stints I me. They cut me open and put them in. The doctor said I had a heart that was young as hell, but it was just blocked off. And that’s the way I’m eating. But I think if I had enough paramagnetics in me, I don’t think I would have ever had heart trouble.


Phil: That’s right. What I think you need to do if you have heart trouble is to start taking a teaspoon of paramagnetic dust every day and that would get rid of it. Put it in your orange juice.


Joe: Should it be really finely ground magnetite, or should it be just coarse stuff?


Phil: It’s better coarse really, because it’s more like an antenna. But it doesn’t  make  that  much  difference.  On  the  CGS  meter  it  might  be  a difference of one CGS or something like that, but not enough to make that much difference.


Joe: Well I’ve got that 19,000 stuff. I don’t think it will hurt me.


Phil: No, no. It would cure your heart trouble. Put it in your orange juice. It goes good in orange juice.



Magnetite and Lodestone

The primary ore of iron, a mineral used in heavy media separation, and a recorder of Earth magnetism

Article by: Hobart M. King, PhD, RPG

typical magnetite

Magnetite: A typical magnetite specimen exhibiting a gray metallic luster. This specimen is approximately 10 centimeters across.

What is Magnetite?

Magnetite is a very common iron oxide (Fe3O4mineral that is found in igneousmetamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. It is the most commonly mined ore of iron. It is also the mineral with the highest iron content (72.4%).


Identification of Magnetite

Magnetite is very easy to identify. It is one of just a few minerals that are attracted to a common magnet. It is a black, opaque, submetallic to metallic mineral with a Mohs hardness between 5 and 6.5. It is often found in the form of isometric crystals. It is the most strongly magnetic mineral found in nature.

Pyrrhotite is the second most common magnetic mineral. It can easily be identified by its magnetic properties, lower hardness, and bronze color.

lodestone magnetite

Lodestone: A specimen of lodestone that has attracted numerous tiny particles of iron. This specimen is approximately 10 centimeters across.

octahedral magnetite crystals

Magnetite Crystals: Octahedral crystals are a common crystal habit of magnetite. They are often seen in igneous and metamorphic rocks and sometimes seen in sediments near the magnetite source area. The magnetite crystals in this photo are about eight to twelve millimeters in maximum dimension.


Magnetite as “Lodestone”

Normal magnetite is attracted to a magnet, but some specimens are automagnetized and have the ability to attract small pieces of iron, small pieces of magnetite, and other magnetic objects. This form of magnetite, known as “lodestone,” was man’s first encounter with the property of magnetism. Lodestone is easily identified because it is usually covered with small particles of magnetite and other magnetic minerals (see photo).

Pieces of lodestone suspended on a string served as the first magnetic compasses and were used in China as early as 300 BC. When freely suspended on a string, a small piece of lodestone will align itself with Earth’s magnetic field.

taconite pellets

Use of Magnetite as an Ore of Iron

Most of the iron ore mined today is a banded sedimentary rock known as taconite that contains a mixture of magnetite, hematite, and chert. Once considered a waste material, taconite became an important ore after higher grade deposits were depleted. Today’s commercial taconites contain 25 to 30% iron by weight.

At the mine site, the taconite ore is ground to a fine powder, and strong magnets are used to separate magnetically susceptible particles containing magnetite and hematite from the chert. The concentrate is then mixed with small amounts of limestone and clay, then rolled into small round pellets. These pellets are easy to handle and transport by ship, rail, or truck. They can be directly loaded into a blast furnace at a mill and be used to produce iron or steel.

Mineral collection

The best way to learn about minerals is to study with a collection of small specimens that you can handle, examine, and observe their properties. Inexpensive mineral collections are available in the Store. Image copyright iStockphoto / Anna Usova.

Use of Magnetite as a Heavy Media

Powdered magnetite is often mixed with a liquid to produce a thick, high-density slurry that is used for specific gravity separations. Much of the high-sulfur coal that is mined in the eastern United States is floated across a slurry of magnetite. Clean coal particles have a low specific gravity and float on the slurry. Particles contaminated with pyrite (a sulfide mineral with a high specific gravity) sink into the high-density slurry.

magnetite sand

Magnetite sand: Some beach and river sands contain high concentrations of magnetite. Magnetite-rich “black sands” are commonly encountered by people panning for gold. Although magnetite sands and other heavy mineral accumulations are common, they are infrequently developed as mineral deposits because their size or grade is inadequate. The pile in the photo is approximately four inches (10 centimeters) across.


Use of Magnetite as an Abrasive

The abrasive known as “emery” is a natural mixture of magnetite and corundum. Some synthetic emery is produced by mixing magnetite with aluminum oxide particles. The production of synthetic emery gives the manufacturer control over the particle size and the relative abundance of aluminum oxide and magnetite in the product.

Some finely ground magnetite is also used as an abrasive in waterjet cutting. In the past few decades, synthetic abrasives have filled many of the applications where magnetite was previously used.

Other Uses of Magnetite

Small amounts of magnetite are also used as a toner in electrophotography, as a micronutrient in fertilizers, as a pigment in paints, and as an aggregate in high-density concrete.

Magnetite and Earth’s Magnetic Field

Tiny crystals of magnetite are present in many rocks. In the crystallization of an igneous rock, tiny crystals of magnetite form in the melt, and because they are magnetic, they orient themselves with the direction and polarity of Earth’s magnetic field. This preserves the orientation of Earth’s magnetic field within the rock at the moment of crystallization.

Today, geologists can study the magnetic properties of rocks of various age and reconstruct the history of change in Earth’s magnetic field. This information is available for multiple locations on multiple continents. It can also be used to learn about plate tectonics and the movement of continents over time.

A similar orientation of tiny magnetite grains occurs in the settling of sediment particles, locking clues to Earth’s magnetic history into some sedimentary rocks.


Joe: I don’t know if I told you about this, but I made some solar stills for distilling water. I put magnetic iron oxide in the bottom of the stills. After a year or two the calcium will form on the iron. You take it out, pour little vinegar over it, clean it up then put it right back in. With these little tiny points sticking up in the air and when the sun shines in on the water, the vapor seems to break up and you can get twice as much water.


Phil: Sure, You have an ultrasonic condition taking place. When I start running the water, the birds nearby start talking and singing because the ultrasonic comes from the water. Parrot owners don’t know that. Some parrots will talk once in a while just to imitate sounds, but you can get a parrot to talk a blue streak by putting some ultrasonics near it. Birds hear by ultrasonics.


Joe: Now, if you take a disk with lots of quartz and a little electricity and put it in water, the water will broadcast it throughout the room.


Phil: When you turn a faucet on, it’s ultrasonically dynamic because the water runs past a metal faucet which creates a lot of ultrasonic. If you take the bird in the bathroom and turn the faucet on, it will start talking.


Joe: If you take the water and iron oxide tape, like an audio videotape and you record the water, you have the frequencies. If you play that for the bird, it would do the same thing, wouldn’t it?


Phil: Yep, it would make the bird sing all day long.



Joe: I have a whole set of tuning forks. I record each of the tuning forks. I can take the tuning fork and make it work with another fork over here. I can make a tape of that tuning fork and play it turned up and amplified and it will do the same thing because it’s the same frequency. And that’s what scares me. Benveniste said he can replicate the same frequency of opium from Los Angeles and broadcast it over the telephone and make a guy go higher than a kite in New York.

Phil: Sure, everything is a frequency. That’s all it is. You can record anything you want and make it do good, or make it do bad. People were tortured just by having a drop of water hit a certain surface which creates a certain sonic sound that would drive people crazy. They have been tortured with a drop of water creating an ultrasonic frequency just by hitting the right surface.


Joe: Well, I think the understatement of the year was, “The author firmly believes that this work is his most important and he can save agriculture worldwide. By Dr. Phil Callahan.” I think that says it all.


Phil: Yep, yep. Well a lot of people are still buying that book.


Joe: I buy them by the case. Once in a while, the ones you have autographed for me get away. This one hasn’t even been signed. You can sign it for me.


Phil: I can sign it right now.


Joe: I try to keep them at home. I buy them by the case from you. I put them out all over. I have a half dozen at these at the Biosphere where they were working up there. A couple of Chinese Ph.D.s were working up there and they took this book back to China with them. That’s why they are ordering paramagnetics from me. They are starting a place in Loma, China, which is very similar to Arizona. They are putting a big glass dome over in China. You’ve signed almost all my books. I’ve got every book you ever put out. Thank you. You’ve got some books you haven’t published.


Phil: I’ve got a whole stack of books around here somewhere.


Joe: Oh, I have to share with you another thing. Dr. Halstead, during the last part of his life, wrote a book on coral calcium. A whole book. He sent it to me and I read the transcript then wrote back to him. By then it had gone to print. I said that if you take the coral calcium and blow it apart with sound instead of pulverizing it the mineral will be cellularly assimilated. It wouldn’t hurt to add a little lignites and iron oxide. He followed through with the suggestion and reported that the growth on the stuff, as well as the animals that he fed it to, were unbelievable. The stuff assimilated. It didn’t pass right through the system.


Phil: The funny thing is when you tell that to a veterinarian, they go right home and use it. When you tell that to an M.D., they look at you like you’re crazy. The vet will go right home and go to work on it.


Joe: So, most of these medicines that we’re making are beaten, hammered, ground and compounded. The vitamins and minerals are ruined. It’s so easy to blow them apart. Tesla was the one that started using sound to blow apart minerals. Tesla almost collapsed an entire building down with a police whistle.. sound!


Phil: Tesla and Wilhelm Reich were the two geniuses with this sort of thing. They didn’t know the physics of it, but they knew what they were doing.


Joe: I did not get to meet Tesla. I went up there when I was a young kid, and he didn’t like kids. I was trying and he didn’t want anything to do with me. But Wilhelm Reich came to Tucson and lived with me for 18 months during the last part of his life. His son was my age and we got along really well. He wrote a couple of things. You’ll read a little in that paper about Wilhelm Reich.



Phil: Wilhelm Reich was a psychiatrist and he loved children. Tesla was a loner.


Joe: In fact, any money Wilhelm Reich made was supposed to go in a children’s protection fund. Now, he’s been dead fifty years as of this year. He said the last part of his research would not be able to be made public until the fiftieth year. So, I’m going to go back to Rainley, Maine where there’s a lady that’s in charge of the center. I’ll copy everything that I can get. I usually drag Marilyn around with me to see that I get where I am going. God, she’s put up with me for fifty years. People around Tucson call her Saint Marilyn.

Phil: Well, my wife’s put up with me for fifty-four years. Like everybody said, she married a character.


Joe: You met your wife in England?


Phil: Ireland.


Joe: You learned so much in Ireland about the salt and paramagnetics.


Phil: I learned a lot of from the old stone structures. I used to spend my time going around painting pictures.


Joe: You and Christopher Bird had the same kind of exposure in England. He was running the tower stations trying to redirect the airplanes and he was putting those things out.


Phil: I did the same thing actually. I was a Navigational Aides Expert and so was he.


Joe: He told me one time that they sent him to Germany to do some espionage over there. He went to France. Somebody was going to send in a bunch of plastic explosives. They made a mold in the form of lobsters. Some idiot had the idea to make them red. As they unloaded the lobsters off the boat, the Germans realizing the peculiarity of tossing out cooked lobsters ended up killing everybody on the boat. A lobster doesn’t turn red until you cook it.


Phil: You have to cook it to turn red. They knew something was wrong.


Joe: So, the Germans killed everybody there. He said he just barely got out alive. Whenever I got to talk to Christopher Bird, he was always interested in what you were doing. A lot of times I didn’t know what you were doing because you didn’t talk much about anything.


Phil: Well, I never talked much about World War II until I would get the Medal of Honor. I was an unofficial spy. I sent data back to the OSS before it was the CIA and the German’s occupied France. (points to a picture) In fact, that’s one of these airplanes. A B-26.


Joe: Do you do your own artwork?


Phil: Oh yeah, this is mine.


Joe: That’s beautiful.


Phil: This is all mine. I just finished these for the book. That’s a ship that went down.


Joe: Art Brown did a lot of his work too.


Phil: This is a hen harrier. It depends on if you want to kill birds, rats or mice. That was the best falcon I ever had. I would hunt rats and mice with him because what would I want to kill a bird for? The hen harrier is a large bird. I would go around a farm and kick the haystacks so rats would come out.. the falcon would get them. We call it a marshal in this country. They call it a hen harrier over there… same bird found all over the world.



Joe: Roy Davis told me about the birds in the Everglades getting iron oxide in their brains for sensing direction. He studied that for a long time and he found out that the gray Spanish moss growing on the trees have an affinity for iron oxide. The moss takes it into the plants. The birds would eat the berries off the Spanish moss and that’s how they get the magnetite into their system.


Phil: That’s exactly true, because I’ve seen them eating those berries. They’re getting all the good stuff from the Spanish moss that goes into those berries. I’m going to publish a book that’s mostly paintings.


Joe: Halstead worked closely with fish and the ocean. He put some huge books together because he had an oceanography degree, but he was still interested in birds. There’s not a lot of difference between birds and fish.


Phil: Birds are actually reptiles. That’s why they have scales on their legs.


Joe: Did you ever see any of Gould’s books out of England? The books are worth a fortune now.


Phil: Come here, I’ll show you something.


Joe: Gould taught me a lot about looking for minerals.


Phil: Did you ever meet him?


Joe: No, never met him. I met people that met him. Those books are selling for thousands now, did you know that? Gould wrote about how birds can lead you to minerals. The Gould stuff is selling for a fortune.


Marilyn: Let Dr. Callahan talk a little bit too.



Joe: Go ahead. I want you to talk.


Marilyn: He does those? Those were beautiful.


Phil: This is a hen harrier, which is a bird of Ireland.


Marilyn: That’s right, I remember reading in your book that you like birds.


Phil: I’m getting a Medal of Honor, so I figured I better write a book.

This is my old B-26 that I few. I was a radio gunner, but I flew it too.


Joe: He’s a hell of an artist, isn’t he?


Marilyn: That bird is beautiful.


Joe: Marilyn, why don’t you sit down here and direct a little bit and get him to talk about himself.


Marilyn: You had things you were going to ask him. Are you running out of stuff?


Phil: A lot of what you see around here is stuff I’ve done. That’s an old German legend. That cross there is (inaudible) and that’s a redheaded woodpecker which is common in Louisiana. It’s not too common around here, although I’ve seen one or two. That’s my golden eagle I trained as I would a falcon.


Joe: You actually were able to train it?



Phil: Oh yeah, I found the eagle. I had it for about 10 years. Finally, I had to move temporarily and I couldn’t keep the eagle in an apartment. So, I donated it to the New Orleans Zoo. It must be forty years old now. It’s in the New Orleans zoo and still alive. They live to be 50 or 60 years old, but that eagle is still alive in the zoo. At least he was a year ago. (points) Those are in my paintings there. The painting of the Indian is not mine. That was painted by Yazu. He was one of the great Indian painters.


Joe: Birds have a close relationship to man, more than we realize. The canaries were used in the mines to warn the men when there were dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.


Phil: They always took with them a canary. If they got too much methane, and the canary would keel over, they would take the canary and leave.


Joe: What do you think about these new bio-toxins that Halstead was developing? Do you think that it would be better to use birds to check them rather than men?



Phil: Nothing can poison a bird or a snake. I used to have a little grass snake, a cave snake, about that long. It looks a little bit like a rattlesnake. They don’t lay eggs like most snakes, but give birth to live snakes. It was really funny because they got out of their cage once and all these little ones got out.


Joe: Did you experiment with snakes on bio-toxins?


Phil: Yeah, and I did infrared experimentation with them. Their tongues could detect the heat.


Joe: Can a snake and a bird detect poisoned water and food?


Phil: Oh yeah, you can’t poison a bird. If there are no birds around the water, you know it’s no good.


Joe: You could pour that water over iron oxide and it would be free of poison.


Phil: Yeah, that’s what I did in World War II. When I wanted a drink of water, and I would have a rock in my pocket and I would throw it into the canteen and drink it. I never got sick. You just throw a bunch of paramagnetic rocks in the canteen. I could take rocks out of any old ditch, put it in polluted water and have water. I was a radio commando and I had to have water. You can live a week without food, but you have to have water.


Joe: So you dropped your paramagnetics into your canteen and you had water. Now why don’t they put a couple of these paramagnetic balls in the water canteens for every soldier?
