IS FINDLAY'S ETHERIC WORLD?
universe, I believe, is composed of a gigantic scale of
vibrations. Those which we appreciate on earth are only
a small range of vibrations between two fixed points, namely
between 34,000 and 64,000 waves to the inch, or from 400
to 750 billion waves to the second. That is the section
of the universe which appeals to us, the one which makes
up to us the physical world. Now the physical world is only
a very limited scale of vibrations compared with all the
other vibrations in the universe.
We have recently discovered how to produce another range
of vibrations which we are able to tune into, as the result
of the various devices which go to make up our wireless
set. We have learned how to make these vibrations and convert
them into sound, but before we knew how to do so they had
not existed, though the medium through which they reach
us has always existed. Without this ether we should be blind
and frozen, as it carries to us the radiation of the sun.
Official science recognizes solely the physical universe,
and only within the last forty years has it discovered that
the physical universe is made up of these etheric vibrations.
That is about as far orthodox science has reached today,
but those of us who have taken the opportunity afforded
to get into conversation with the scientists in the etheric
world are able to build on this in a way that no orthodox
That other vibrations exist is well known by scientists,
but only certain ranges, one the X-rays, which are waves
of greater frequency than those which constitute physical
matter, and the lesser frequency waves called dark heat
waves and long electric waves. These are proved to our senses
by instruments, but there are vast spaces still unknown
to physical science. There is a big gap between the most
frequent physical vibrations and the X-ray vibrations.
VIBRATIONS BEYOND X-RAYS
The vibrations of the etheric world, I am told by my informants
there, commence just above those of the physical world.
We have confirmation of this through the knowledge obtained
from psychic photography and clairvoyance, and from the
fact that etheric beings, called ghosts, have been seen
from time to time through the ages. Thus their lowest vibrations
must be just about touching our normal physical range of
sight. The chart above makes this clear, and shows how limited
are our sense perceptions. Only the black portion represents
the physical world. This is all we sense of the innumerable
etheric waves making up the universe.
We are told from the etheric world of this vast range of
vibrations, and, knowing what we do of physical vibrations,
we can appreciate how and where the two worlds meet. We
have now no difficulty in relating physical matter to etheric
matter. Physical matter is made of vibrations within two
fixed points. Etheric matter is made up of vibrations just
beyond 64,000 waves to the inch. The etheric world is just
a continuation of the vibrations beyond what our senses
can perceive. We cannot sense beyond the physical range,
so long as we inhabit the physical body. Clairaudient and
clairvoyant mediums can do so to a limited extent, but they
are exceptional, due to their etheric ears and eyes being
less heavily coated by physical matter than those of normal
people. How far beyond the physical range of vibrations
the etheric goes we do not know.
