Mechanical and Electrical Responses in Living Matter

// Jagadis Bose // Article // The first two chapters of Response in the Living and Non-living. // "Unlike muscle, a length of nerve, when mechanically or electrically excited, does not undergo any visible change. That it is thrown into an excitatory state, and that it conducts the excitatory disturbance, is shown however by the contraction produced in an attached piece of muscle, which serves as an indicator....

The Magnifying Transmitter

// Nikola Tesla // Article // If my memory serves me right, it was in November, 1890, that I performed a laboratory experiment which was one of the most extraordinary and spectacular ever recorded in the annals of science. In investigating the behavior of high frequency currents, I had satisfied myself that an electric field of sufficient intensity could be produced in a room and used to light up electrodeless vacuum tubes.

The Problem of Increasing Human Energy

// Nikola Tesla // Article: The introduction to Tesla's book The Problem of Increasing Human Energy. // The onward movement of humanity. The energy of the movement. The three ways of increasing human energy. Of all the endless variety of phenomena which nature presents to our senses, there is none that fills our minds with greater wonder than that inconceivably complex movement which we designate as human life.

A History of the Germ Theory

// R. Pearson // Extract from Bechamp or Pasteur? // If you go back into the history of the medical profession and the various ideas regarding the cause of disease that were held by leading physicians before Pasteur first promulgated his notorious "germ theory", you will find convincing evidence that Pasteur discovered nothing, and that he deliberately appropriated, falsified and perverted another man's work. The 'germ theory', so-called, long antedated Pasteur - so long, in fact, that he was able to present it as new; and he got away with it. More >

Cancer and Most Diseases are Caused by Bacteria

// Alan Cantwell // Article // A century and a half ago, Bechamp declared the microzyma is the essential unit of life. He observed tiny, round granular bodies within the cells that glistened as tiny sparkles of refracted light. He was not the first to see the granules, but he was the first to suspect these “little bodies” might hold the key to the origin of life. More >

All Human Blood is Infected with Bacteria

// Alan Cantwell // Article // Bacteria are everywhere. Our mouths, throat, nose, ears all harbor germs. But what about the blood? Under ‘normal’ conditions physicians generally believe human blood is ‘sterile’. The idea of bacteria living in the blood normally is largely considered medical heresy. Dr Alan Cantwell provides evidence showing the existence of bacterial entities in the blood. This directly relates to the work of Antoine Bechamp. More >

Some Statistics

// R. Pearson // Extract from the book Bechamp or Pasteur? // In any discussion of the value of a remedy or preventative for any disease, actual statistics of the results that have followed the use of such remedy or preventative in the past should be of great value in judging it, especially when the trend over a long period of years can be charted graphically.

The Cult of the Microbe: The Origin of ‘Preventive Medicine’

// Ethel Hume // Extract from the book Bechamp or Pasteur? // Hume describes the origin of the cult of the germ theory of disease. It was at the beginning of 1873 that Pasteur was elected by a majority of one vote to a place among the Free Associates of the Academy of Medicine. His ambition had indeed spurred him to open ‘a new era in medical physiology and pathology’, but it would seem to have been unfortunate for the world that instead of putting forward the fuller teaching of Béchamp, he fell back upon the cruder ideas now widely known as the ‘germ theory’ of disease.

Notes on the Coagulation of the Blood

// Professor Antoine Bechamp // Extract from the book The Blood and its Third Element. // The object of this work is the solution of a problem of the first order; to show the real nature of the blood, and to demonstrate the character of its organization. It has, besides, a secondary purpose; the solution of a problem long ago stated, but never solved – the cause of its coagulation, correctly regarded as spontaneous, after it has issued from the blood vessels. The conclusion arrived at is that the blood is a flowing tissue, spontaneously alterable in the same manner as are all other tissues withdrawn from the animal, coagulation of the blood being only the first phase of its spontaneous change. This article by Antoine Bechamp is extracted from The Blood and its Third Element. More >

On Pleomorphism

// Article from The Life Enthusiast // "...all natural organic matters (matters that once lived), absolutely protected from atmospheric germs, invariably and spontaneously alter and ferment, because they necessarily and inherently contain within themselves the agents of their spontaneous alteration, digestion, dissolution". These agents are of course the self same Protits of Enderlein. As noted, M. Béchamp called them Microzymas. He proved that all animal and plant cells contain these tiny particles which continue to live after the death of the organism and out of which microorganisms can develop. In his book Mycrozymas, Béchamp laid the foundation for the concept of pleomorphism...." More >

Second Thoughts on Disease

// Kalokerinos & Dettman // Article // This article is on Aboriginal infant mortality in Australia associated with immunizations meant to save them, and other doctors' findings concerning the value of megascorbic therapy, specifically, and of orthomolecular medicine, generally, as treatment approaches. This is very relevant to Bechamp's science. More >

My Early Life

// Nikola Tesla // Extract from the book My Inventions // The first chapter of Tesla's My Inventions contains his recollections of his childhood. "The progressive development of man is vitally dependent on invention. It is the most important product of his creative brain. Its ultimate purpose is the complete mastery of mind over the material world, the harnessing of the forces of nature to human needs. This is the difficult task of the inventor, who is often misunderstood and unrewarded." - Tesla. More >
