Royal Raymond Rife
In the 1930’s and 1940’s, Royal Raymond Rife revolutionized everything
that has been done before or since in high resolution optical microscopy.
He also revolutionized everything before or since in cellular biology.
carried cellular structure far beyond anything ever dreamed of at the time or
presently. He revealed the direct connection between organized living energy
forms and organized biological systems. He revealed that life itself is
organized and dynamic, to a far finer level than anything in the textbooks
today. He revealed that our present theory of disease is fundamentally very,
He produced direct, economical, electromagnetic cures of cancer, leukemia,
and other such debilitating diseases. His work presages a future mankind could
have had, where most debilitating diseases were quickly and economically
corrected, and where no poisonous drugs, violent nuclear irradiation, and harsh
chemotherapeutic "burning" of the patient would be necessary.
For such epochal work, he was ostracized, essentially imprisoned in a medical
treatment facility, broken, condemned, and rejected by his peers. His findings,
though printed in reputable publications and journals, were discredited and
He literally was reduced to a non-person by the power of the medical cartel.
Finally escaping from his enforced confinement, he lived out his remaining
years and died quietly and unknown.
Rife's Universal Microscope
With his universal microscope, Rife achieved optical
resolution of up to 31,000 diameters and magnification up to 60,000 diameters.
His microscope could examine living viruses, living bacteria, and other
as-yet-undiscovered living organisms and living energy forms that no other
microscope before or since could see.
Even today, only the electron microscope furnishes such
resolution, and it zaps-to-death the objects that are being examined. Further,
it will not at all detect or see the "living energy forms" revealed by
To appreciate Rife's accomplishment, let's briefly summarize
some of the performance factors of an optical microscope.*
*The electron microscope reveals only the "dead carnage" of the
battlefield after everything is destroyed. With it, one is observing physical
residuals, not the living players. For some encouraging modern work, however, see
Michael Hercher, "Virometer—an instrument for the measurement of the size of
viruses using in optical microscope," SPIE Seminar Proc., 1977, p.17-22.
Several factors are important in the functioning of a
microscope: Resolution, magnification, and contrast lead the list.
By resolution we refer to the ability of the
instrument to distinguish a small object. In other words, something like
looking at a medical doctor's eye chart, and specifying the smallest print one
can clearly see. Resolution is often referred to as resolving power.
By "magnification" or magnifying power we mean
the ability of the instrument to "blow up" or enlarge the image
produced. Roughly, it's the ratio of the apparent size of the object seen through
the microscope to the apparent size of the same object seen without the
Magnifying power is exactly like enlarging a photograph. It
won't improve the resolution or make the photograph any clearer, but may make
whatever was captured (resolved) easier for the human operator to see. If you
just keep enlarging the photograph, it will get more and more grainy, until no
further details can be seen with higher magnification.
Contrast refers to the distinctness by which
the various parts of the object can be distinguished from one another. To
enhance contrast of objects under the microscope, staining of the objects is
often used. Very often the act of staining will itself kill the living
organisms—such as bacteria—that are being examined.

We may state the resolution of an optical
microscope in terms of the diameter of the smallest object resolved: for
example, so many nanometers. Or we may just simply and loosely speak of so many
thousands of diameters.
The resolution of an optical microscope
depends upon the illumination conditions, its optical system, and the fact that
the object viewed diffracts and spreads the light. A wide variety of mechanisms
for illuminating, resolving, contrasting, etc. are used in optical microscopes.
According to standard Rayleigh theory,
normal optical microscopes are limited in resolution to about half a wavelength.
That corresponds to about 250 nanometers for visible light illumination. One can
do a little better than that by using ultraviolet light and quartz optics. The
UV has a higher frequency than visible light and hence a shorter wavelength.
However, beyond 240 nanometers the resolution of an optical microscope quickly
A few researchers—notably in the 30's and 40's—remarked about other factors, such as "quality of the lenses,"
affecting resolution. Some of them reported results to about a tenth of a
wavelength. Loosely, that translated to somewhere in the order of 5,000 to 6,000
diameters. The dependable upper limit seemed to be—and still is—about
3,000 diameters, however .
Normal optical microscopes simply are almost
useless for trying to look at viruses. They will not resolve any but the very
largest viruses, and will not resolve the internal features of even those few
Much of today's knowledge of virus structures and
shapes comes from the use of electron microscopes. They bombard the object
viewed with a fierce rain of energetic electrons. These instruments see nothing
of the functioning of the virus, for they kill it instantly in trying to
With Rife's universal microscope, the dynamic
living functions of the virus could be observed without killing it.
With Rife's microscope, a whole range of complex
organisms and structures below the size of bacteria was revealed. Many of these
organisms are still not known to present science, even though some of them were
written about at the time. Filterable forms of bacteria—forms which readily
passed through filters supposed to easily block their passage—were discovered
and reported by Rife and his medical colleagues.
In addition, Rife's microscope—which contained
block-quartz prisms and lenses and interference stages—revealed halos around
living organisms that other microscopes could not see, even though the object
was within their resolving power. Further, it revealed the existence of entire
organisms and forms which other microscopes could not see—even though, again,
the size of the organisms was within their resolving power .
In other words, Rife's microscope not only
revealed smaller physical forms than any other microscope could see, but it also
revealed sizeable "living energy" forms which no other microscope
Rife Proved That Everything Is Alive
The degree of smallness to which Rife's
microscope would resolve, and the extraordinary energy forms it could detect,
showed that direct detection of the virtual state organization of the living
organism was accomplished by the instrument.
The science of the day was only just groping its
way toward any sort of physics that could explain such an astounding
instrumental result. Today, however, in the hard-core literature there is
demonstrated proof that the optical limit of resolution can be drastically
overcome, using evanescent waves.*
*E.g., see T. Sato et al, "Application of evanescent
waves to microscopic observation," Bull. Tokyo Inst. Technol. (Japan),
No.125, 1974. p. 35-41. See also G.A. Massey, "Microscopy and pattern
generation with scanned evanescent waves," Appl. Opt. (Poland), 13(3),1983.
Shortly we will briefly give an "ad
hoc" explanation of such evanescent waves.
Electromagnetism has been shown by
Kaluza-Klein theory to actually exist in the fifth dimension. In other words, EM
itself is hyperdimensional. It flows in the fifth dimension, which is
"wrapped around" each point in our ordinary space. It is—to the
first approximation—the external environment of every normal point in our
Let's say that again.
The electromagnetics "medium"
itself is totally external to each point in our space. Each of our points is
surrounded in higher space by the electromagnetic medium.
We live inside a totally electromagnetic
medium. It's not just an "electromagnetic environment" in our own
space; instead, it's an electromagnetic environment in hyperspace.
Everything already is just the internal
structure of the electromagnetic medium!
That's what the "vacuum" is.
That's what "spacetime" is.
That's what the "virtual state" is.
That's what physical matter is.
And it's all alive. Totally and completely alive.
Everything is alive. There is nothing but life. The electromagnetic medium is
Except within a locally-organized biopotential
area, it's just "equally alive in all directions." So it appears
inert, where by "inert" we mean not singly preferential.
Every biopotential change, at any level in a
biopotential, extends "decaying-expotential-wise" to infinity, by
standard theory. Part of that potential change exists at every point in the
entire spatial universe. And there at that point, so do the biopotential changes
for every other biosystem in the universe.
Everything's alive. There is nothing but life.
Anywhere. Any time.
An interchange between this "living,
surrounding electromagnetic medium" and each particle of mass in our
3-space continually occurs. This exchange involves the so-called virtual
If we model higher dimensions, such as are
necessary to include the "particle zoo" discovered by modern particle
physics, each of these "higher dimensions" corresponds to a
"successively deeper" internested level of virtual particle flux—of
the vacuum, or of this electromagnetic medium that surrounds us.
The living system orders, structures, and
dynamically functions and interchanges electromagnetically throughout many
higher "dimensions"—throughout many such internested levels of
virtual- state/vacuum/spacetime .
Except for the first layer of virtual state
(the 5th dimension in Kaluza-Klein theory), gross (classical) electromagnetic
theory totally ignores the infolded, ordered deeper structure of
electromagnetism (of the EM medium).
Using such gross electromagnetics, orthodox
science thus can only detect and grasp the gross results of the living
organism's functioning. Further, it can only detect and grasp those gross
results that actually move 3-space matter—observable particles.
So it only detects the grossest interchanges
between "mind" or "life" and matter. Specifically, it only
detects the final results of that interchange the gross movement of material
The first hypernumber—"i," the square
root of minus 1—is used to model another dimension at right angles to our
normal three. An electromagnetic wave thus is modeled to have two parts: the
first is the part that affects or moves a material particle, and that's called
the "real" part or "observable" part. The second part of the
EM wave is the component that lies in this "imaginary" (unfortunate
standard term!) dimension. That imaginary part does not of itself move charged
particles, so it is considered to be "something other than real."
Note that what's really done in this sort of
orthodox modeling is to define observation as the movement of observable charged
The human "conscious mind" is a
functioning part of the overall human mind that has been specifically fitted to
function almost totally with our gross bodily detection of the photon
We thus consciously detect and "are aware of'
only the first level of reality: the interface between the first layer of
virtual-state/ vacuum/spacetime/ and the 3-space of observable particles of
Since the physicist must be "conscious"
of his observation or instrumental detection, the detection process ultimately
has to have
a final stage that produces a photoelectric interaction with his body—for
that is all the conscious mind detects and processes.
Everything chemical, electrical, etc.—according to quantum mechanics—will involve at its root level only the
Rife's Microscope Used Evanescent
However, it is certainly possible
to build an instrument which is multi-staged, and one in which higher stages
interact primarily with deeper internested levels of vacuum virtual state. That
is, an instrument that interacts with higher dimensional phenomena. That is, one
that interacts with deeper internested levels of electro- magnetics. If these
stages interact causally in a vertical manner , then the final interaction with
the human body and nervous system can still be "normal
electromagnetics" and yet indicate a higher dimensional phenomenon, event,
That is precisely what Rife did: His
universal microscope penetrated to a much finer level of reality because its
multiple stages used evanescent waves.
Here's what we mean by that.
An electromagnetic wave consists of a
"real" part and an "imaginary" part, as we have discussed.
It's possible, however, to have the real part become zero, and still have the
"imaginary" part remain and dynamically vary .
This sort of wave—containing only the
"imaginary" part—is said to be one type of complex wave, or an
In advanced EM waveguide and optical theory , such
evanescent waves can function to guide or determine the real parts of the EM
waves. That "real part" is the part that is then going to interact
with electrons and move them, and give us a "detection."
In other words, the "real" part of the
EM wave will be moved and guided by the "higher dimensional" or
evanescent part, or even by separated evanescent parts—pure evanescent waves.
So one can build a device or instrument that
utilizes such an effect to reveal what's going on in a whole dimension beyond
what we normally see. Waveguides in certain RF radars already do that.
Such instruments are not limited to the resolution
determined by the "real" part of the EM wave (such as the "real
part" of light).
Such a microscope would not necessarily be limited
in resolution by the wavelength of the light it used to illustrate the observed
Indeed, if one uses a higher dimensional
Kaluza-Klein model (which particle physics of necessity has to consider), one
could build a "repetitive stages" instrument which could view many
more higher dimensions. That's exactly the same thing as viewing many more
deeper internested levels of virtual state.
That is precisely what Royal R. Rife did: He
developed a microscope using multiple stages, special interferences, etc. He
built a multistaged evanescent wave instrument that could see into higher
dimensions and deeper levels of virtual state.
Rife's microscopes were thus startlingly different
from normal microscopes. That is why he could see phenomena and organisms,
ostensibly within the size capability of normal microscopic resolution, which
ordinary microscopes could not see.*
*However, Rife's microscope was extraordinarily
difficult to focus. Rife often
spent 24 hours straight at his universal microscope, just in focusing
Evanescent waves penetrate the virtual state
(hyperdimensions) and interact with what to us is "dimensionless"
(what does not spatially intersect our 3-space). Interfering multiple evanescent
waves reflected from/having interacted with these (to us) nonphysical forms can
again reproduce ordinary electromagnetic "light." Thus the evanescent
wave microscope, if properly built, allows one to directly "see" (and
photograph) what is to us living forms of energy , nonphysical, and without
3-space matter bodies.**
**If one is going to accept the many-dimensional
theories necessary to explain particle physics, one must accept the
possibility of higher dimensional living things, which we would
"see" as living energy forms or as thought forms. These would
appear nonphysical to us—as is time itself—but would be real and
The same scheme can be used to develop
instruments capable of directly revealing the living nonphysical world
around us -such as the human biopotentials, their internal structures
(including "thought forms"), etc. What the Soviets call
bioplasma can be directly observed and photographed in this fashion. We
have only to develop the necessary instruments; the science required is
difficult, but it is already in the literature.
That is what Rife's microscope
did. It was a forerunner of the instruments we need to develop in
electromagnetic healing, and Rife was a truly great and unappreciated
In one swoop medical science
could have jumped a century ahead. The ruthless suppression of Rife and
his fantastic scientific breakthrough was one of the most dastardly
deeds ever perpetuated by the orthodox scientific establishment.
Rife Revealed a Far More
Fundamental, Living Biology
With Rife's powerful universal
microscope, it was also possible to view the interiors of the so-called
"pinpoint" cells situated between normal tissue cells and just
barely visible to ordinary microscopes.
Here is the astonishing living world
inside those "pinpoint" cells, as revealed under Rife's
powerful instrument: When one of the "pinpoint" cells was
magnified, still smaller cells were revealed within its structure. When
one of these still-smaller cells, in turn, was magnified, it too was
seen to be composed of even smaller cells.
With Rife's microscope, this process
could be repeated 16 times. An astonishing internested series of
organized levels of a living cell was revealed, far more fundamental
than anything that exists in present biological theory.
The present author points out most
strongly that these levels correspond electrically to, and are in
virtual particle flux pattern exchange with, the electromagnetic
potentials of their environment. This includes their own biopotentials
that are centered in the atomic nuclei of the atoms comprising the
physical material of the cells, and that charge up with specific
The biopotential itself is organized into
a corresponding virtual-state series of internested levels and
functions. The structured biopotential of the cell is a living,
organized, functioning thing, and its internal functioning literally
constitutes the "spirit" or "true nonmaterial deep
mind" of the organism.
All the internested levels are
in constant electromagnetic ex change "up and down" with each
other, particularly with respect to organized virtual particle flux
In addition, all the cells are in constant
electromagnetic ex change "across" with each other, at all
levels. This provides a dynamic, structured, living biopotential for the
entire bio-organism (the entire body). Within this potential, dynamic
interchange on all levels is continually occurring. This is the basis
for the master cellular communication system that Dr. Fritz Albert Popp
Rife's powerful microscope had revealed
nonmaterial function ing life forms (structured, dynamic, living
biopotentials) connected to material bodies.
He could follow "filterable"
forms of bacteria—actual living biopotential forms of the organisms
that could not be separated out by filters, but which would easily pass
through any filter. * He could observe interactions of these forms,
changes of forms, translations and transmissions of forms, etc.—none
of which is detectable by present biological theory or medical science.
*More precisely, they would easily flow around the
3-dimensional filter, since they were hyperdimensional.
Rife had advanced biology and
biophysics a century in one jump. As always, orthodox scientists—most
of whom in their scientific paradigm are self-admitted materialists—were quite unready to tolerate such heresy.
Obviously the materialistic dogma of the
science of his day—and of the science of today—reacted most
hostilely to such hogwash. Contrary to the prevailing mystique, most
scientists are dogmatically attached to materialism and to the dogma of
their present paradigm. Faced with a conflict provided by experiment,
most will uphold the dogma and reject the experiment -the exact opposite
of the scientific method they espouse.
Rife's revolutionary work was no
exception. He incurred the unending, total opposition of powerful
individuals controlling the direction of biology and medical science for
their own personal gains.
Rife was hounded into court on trumped up
charges. Though he was acquitted, he emerged a shaken, broken man and an
alcoholic. His work was suppressed. His equipment was left to gather
dust. He was also forcibly committed to a medical treatment facility.
Finally escaping from his
"prison," Rife lived out his remaining years quietly. He died
without ever being vindicated for his marvelous, world-shaking
But at least he left us a legacy. Persons
are still alive who knew Rife and his work, to one degree or another.
Some of his microscopes are still in existence, though non-operable due
to missing or stolen parts. With proper funding, an enlightened team of
scientists and researchers can be assembled to quickly repair Rife's
remaining instruments and duplicate his incredible work.
With concentrated effort, Rife's work will
yet play a primary role in the development of a direct electromagnetic
cure for AIDS. As a byproduct, it will play a role in rapid development
of cures for cancer and other debilitating diseases.
Royal R. Rife's contributions may yet help
save half of humanity, and prevent a Soviet takeover of the world.
