Professor Philip Callahan, PhD, the author of 17 books and over 150 published papers, is widely regarded as a leading light in sustainable agriculture. His
breakthrough work with insects and infrared radiation is a milestone in the understanding of the link between nutrition and pest pressure.
Dr Callahan’s more recent research and discoveries in relation to paramagnetism are only just beginning to achieve widespread acceptance. Paramagnetism in agriculture is
a powerful growth force which enhances root development and stimulates the multiplication of micro-organisms. Graeme Sait spent an illuminating afternoon with Dr
Callahan during the December 2000 Acres USA conference in Minneapolis.
PLANTS EMIT INFRARED RADIATION
Graeme Sait: In the foreword to your book on paramagnetism, your editor, Fred Walters, stated that you consider your work in this field to be the most important of
your life. Four years have passed since the publication of your book. Are you happy with the impact of your findings in regard to agriculture?
Phil Callahan: Yes, I’m very happy. There are numerous farmers who attend these Acres USA conferences who have tried the concept successfully. Also, in your country,
some of the big corporations are now working with paramagnetism and plant growth. The book really got things started, because competent people can sit down
and read the book and then go out and find out for themselves.
Graeme: The reason I asked if you were happy with the progress relates to what I consider to be snail’s pace progress with your other major discovery. For the sake of
readers not familiar with your work, I’m referring to your discovery that plants emit infrared radiation, which magnifies scent molecules. Insects use their antennae to
detect the source of these molecules. Healthy plants emit a different signal than unhealthy plants, and insects are more attracted to the nutritionally deficient plants.
This incredibly important finding has largely been ignored by entomologists, but the military was quick to see its significance. In fact, the heat-seeking missile was developed
as a result of your work. How do you feel about this?
P h i l : I’m satisfied with my paramagnetics work, but you have to differentiate between this and my infrared insect work. We are still working on projects, which
means that eventually we will be able to generate frequencies that will attract insects. My interest in paramagnetism began with a study of sacred places. I visited these
sites all over the world—Catholic, Buddhist, Moslem, even Australian Aboriginal sites. I noticed that the plant growth was always better at these places, which always
seemed to involve rocks. Further investigation revealed that these rocks were highly paramagnetic.
The point is that this force was already there. I didn’t discover it. It is there to be harvested. The archaeologists would call this “gathering”. Good farming is not
synthetic; it must involve working with nature rather than with synthetic poisons. Paramagnetic materials are there to be harvested. Good farming is “gathering”.
In terms of the electromagnetic work, what I did there was to look at the insects’ antennae, because I was experienced in radio technology. I spent the War in Ireland at
a top-secret radio station. The system I worked with was not a solid-state system that you turn on and it keeps working. It was a vacuum tube system, and it worked for 24
hours a day for two years to keep the coastal command planes finding their way home. I had to keep this system in there at all times. If I made a mistake, there might be 300
dead pilots. I was tied to that station, but I learned a lot about radio. Eventually I looked at the insects’ antennae system and started experimenting.
Excellent , that brings back memories… I trialed paramagnetic crusher dust in my no dig gardens back in the day …. in Darwin. Even bought his Paramagnetic Soil Count Meter… turned out the local granite … syonite…… had a way higher paramagnetic reading than the sample sent with the meter … It was black and pink/red colour .. speckled , and polished well for monuments, plaques etc … In places was used as roadbase !!!… I collected buckets full on the edges that hadn’t been sealed and used in Plasterite and orgonite…… Later , Phill Callahan must have come across Tensor rings , as I remember him reporting that they had a very high paramagnetic reading
Stephen Geddes thanks for the report, in the process of brainstorming, to sort of do a new make over of it all, the site, forum, etc etc, maybe toss in a shop or something too, also thinking of keep it just life force energy – Chi related etc etc
as things , over time, tend to get rather bulky and cluttered , if that is the english word, or bloated would be another one as more and more topics float in….
things tend to get too complicated over time
to put the whole thing more in ” my own words” etc, will keep the old stuff too of course but just a nudge in a new way, flow, direction
all those garden techniques are interesting, I really only use the plasterite, those cones, that is that, and it works out for me, I dont use anything else really in general, this year however did make a few of the copper coil things electroculture, it does manifest an improvement, somewhat , but the selenite by itself, keeps it all going, I never fertilize really or do fancy stuff, and no digging and all that
everything grows very well
yes values of the PCM count can vary a lot, volcanic stone , granite, basalt, etc there is a wide range
roadbase…indeed, well that is how folk sometimes make a click , by accident really, they throw things together or so, like the discovery of the polarizer, by addend quartz and seaweed, boom
the only thing needed is than a observant soul
the problem with the products of spurling, the shop, is the price
as they are silver or gold coated, often, the prices are pretty insane
as people s free spending money is under pressure
unlike say 20 years ago
just keep them copper would be good enough
Phillip Callahan, Pete Jackson, and Paramagnetism
In 2001 Pete Jackson and Phil Callahan wanted to do some scientific tests with Slim’s rings. Pete Jackson does research into new technology for the Department of Defense and for industry as well. Phil Callahan is a well-known author of books on natural science. He writes about everything from the function of light, to the function of various natural chemicals or scent molecules from animals and plants, to paramagnetism in rocks and soils.
Phil has researched these things officially as an entomologist with the Department of Agriculture and unofficially for his own interest. He has spoken at the Acres USA Conference for the past twenty years. His recent book on the topic of paramagnetism and how it affects the growth of plants and agricultural crops delves into the ways in which paramagnetic substances or materials contribute to an increase in health or to a recovery in health.
My wife, Katharina, and I got together with Pete and Phil in December 2000 to discuss what the two of them had discovered about the rings. Their findings verified that the rings and the coils have a very high paramagnetic value. Paramagnetism can be measured by expensive meters found in the best-equipped laboratories. For reference, oxygen and certain granitic substances, like the pink Aswan granite that lines the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid, have a high paramagnetic value of 3000.
Phil invented a special detector for agricultural purposes. While it is not as accurate as some of the higher-cost instruments, it does provide correct and easily obtainable results, especially for testing agricultural soils. Highly paramagnetic soils are the best growing soils, because they have high oxygen content and the capacity to contain sufficient quantities of water.
Oxygen, having a paramagnetic value of 3000, by itself adds to the quality and fertility of a soil already high in paramagnetism. According to the work of Fritz-Albert Popp, given these conditions, the water in the soil emits light photons in the root zone, thereby contributing to reduction of the number of parasites in the soil that could adversely affect a plant.
Pete and Phil rated the paramagnetism of the rings at 18,000! This is six times the greatest value of the highest naturally paramagnetic substances known. Given this information, it is easy to understand why a ring placed around a sick house plant would cause it to revive, become green, and its leaves fill with water. Another example is given below in an early field report from a student of mine in Washington state.
