When Ostrander and Schroeder first saw this collection of Pavlita generators, Robert Pavlita himself was in his mid-fifties, the design director of a Czech textile plant. He had been interested in the subtle use of energies since the twenties. Thirty years of research had taken him into several strange pathways, including a study of Ancient Egypt.
Several scenes depicted in tomb paintings and wall engravings intrigued him, as they have intrigued other engineers. A common representation of a priest offering a libation to Osiris, for example shows the track of something emerging from a container and arching upwards over the god’s head. A similar scene appears in a tomb at Thebes where the contents of a pot arc over the head of a mummy. Egyptologists routinely assume that what’s shown emerging from the container is liquid.
Bill Cox points out that, if this was so, the track of the liquid – which remains remarkably consistent in pictures of this sort – defies the laws of gravity, unless the liquid is pressurized.. .and this, given the containers shown, requires a source of energy. But there are doubts about whether liquid really is being depicted. The mummification process used in Egypt was designed to extract all moisture from a body and the last thing a servant would have done was pour liquid on a mummy.
If not liquid, then what? Cox speculates that the Egyptians were actually indicating energy tracks or energy fields. Robert Pavlita went further. He decided to see if some of the devices depicted might generate some sort of subtle energy in their own right.
(This chapter is headed “Psychotronics Today” and he is on the right track that we have shown hundreds of years or more of a device people like the 99 Lodge and Borgias used. It is called the tepaphone and was probably originally developed from the magic wands of Druids who had the harmonics of the “Lost Chord”. We covered this in ’Hitler vs. Frabato! & The Charm of Making’.)
It took him a long time to prove his point. He quickly discovered that it was nowhere near enough to create, say, a sculptured ‘ankh’ and hope that some sort of energy would manifest automatically. The metal – or, more often, specific combination of metals – proved important and even then the device had to be properly primed in order to be of any use at all. None the less, he persevered, driven by what amounted to an obsession. Eventually he created a device that produced observable results.
Pavlita took his machine to Hradec Kralove University near Prague (Spelt Praha or Pranha in some languages and the site of much work by medieval alchemists.) and persuaded a physicist there to put it to the test. The results were so dramatic that, within days, the entire physics department was involved. What Pavlita had carried in was a sealed metal box, through which passed a shaft attached to a small electric motor underneath. When the motor was switched on, the shaft revolved. The only other part of the machine was a small, shaped metal object in one corner of the box. This object wasn’t attached to any thing and did not seem to have any function whatsoever.
For their tests, the scientists balanced a T-shaped piece of copper on the top of the shaft. When the motor was switched on, the shaft rotated and so, predictably enough, did the T-shaped copper. A high-speed automatic camera kept track of the number of rotations.
Pavlita positioned himself about 2 m (6 ft) from the device and stared at it. After a moment, the copper T slowed, and then stopped, even though the motor was still running and the shaft still rotating. As the startled scientists watched dumbfounded, the copper actually began to spin in the opposite direction to the rotating shaft – an apparent impossibility. The test caused a sensation in research circles, but was gracefully marred by misreporting. Almost without exception, scientists assumed that what had been demonstrated was Robert Pavlita’s natural ability as a psychokinetic medium – someone capable of exerting a purely mental influence on the physical world.
(Of course, science really didn’t accept psychokinesis either. The reversing of spin on atomic structure like electrons is key to the high spin atomics in conjunction with ’shem-an-na’ stones in Egypt that Laurence Gardner attributes many of the benefits of the Philosopher’s Stone to. Included among these benefits is levitation or anti-gravity. There is some question in my mind about the levitation of pyramid stones or other rocks of over 500 Tons and the on again off again nature of the weightlessness. There are other answers we will cover that make more sense to us – that does not disprove the actual performance of what may well have been done. The “White Powder” has been found at a secret manufacturing site of the Egyptians that ties in with the Biblical story of Moses and the ’burning bush’.)
But Pavlita was doing nothing of the sort. The small metal shape, forgotten in the corner of the sealed box, was the world’s first functioning psychotronic generator – or at least the MODERN world’s first functioning psychotronic generator. It was this device that allowed Pavlita to demonstrate his ’impossible effect’.”
