Caduceus Coil Observations
The first mention of Caduceus coils we had heard was in the Cater
book, `Awesome Life Force'. Cater here describes a `laser like
pulsed beam of soft electrons' that is ejected from the coil, along
with other bizarre effects such as levitation. Cater states this
beam will radiate in a longitudinal pattern. A Vangard Sciences
document describes other odd effects when testing Caduceus coils,
namely space/time distortion and, again, levitation. Of course,
given these interesting descriptions, it just had to be tested.
The first tests were carried out rather unscientifically and most
haphazardly. A make shift coil was built from 20 gauge insulated
wire that used a 3" rachet extension as a core. Three windings or
cross-overs were used. Pulsed DC at 9 volts was supplied to the coil
at an unknown frequency. Three VAC was measured across the coil. The
effects, however unconfirmable, are bizarre and worth mentioning to
educate further investigators.
The effects were: metal objects within a five foot radius became
magnetized and the tester received a quite obvious skin burn.
Needless to say, the negative effects were quite disturbing.
The second experiment used a 14" iron bar with 19 windings. Pulsed
DC was used again at approximately 12 volts at an unknown frequency.
No burns or magnetism was experienced. The only effect which could
be attributed to this experiment (although there are no direct
linkages) was that the house became `charged'.
The potential in relation to the human body had changed and now
static shocks became annoyingly common. This effect lasted
approximately three months and then dissipated to a normal level. No
other unusual going ons were happening in the house at the time.
Recent Experimentation & Results
More recent and better controlled experiments with the Caduceus coil
were recently completed. Every drawing of the coil we have seen
contained only three windings, so that's where we began. The
first test involved the following components:
- 7 inch ferrite rod - 22 gauge magnetic wire
- 8 volt 22,000 rpm motor - 6 volt battery supply
- 9 volt battery - ELF Meter
The magnetic wire was wound around the rod to produce three
crossovers or nodal points along the core. The wire was then
connected to the positive terminal of the 9 volt source and the
pulse mechanism respectively.
The pulse mechanism consisted of the motor output rotor pole rigged
with a special circular fitting, half conductive, half non-
conducting. The connection to the negative pole of the source was
then broken and attached to copper poles which rested (with a slight
tension) on the motor output rotor pole. This produced about 2000
hertz, as measured by an oscilloscope. The waveform was distinctly
spiked, as would be expected given the source.
The ELF meter probe was placed approximately 7 feet from the rod and
left at rest. The meter detects low frequency EMF in the 50 - 70
hertz range, .001 milligauss to 50 gauss. Beginning readings on the
ELF were 1.2 milligaus. The setting was a garage (late night) with
the following mechanisms on: 150 watt and 60 watt lights, 1500 watt
A compass was elevated and placed directly behind the coil to record
any magnetic field disturbances. The looped end of the coil was
placed facing to magnetic northwest. The coil was then energized.
No immediate effects were noted. AC voltage measured through the
coil was approximately .3 volts, much less than we expected.
Within 5 minutes time, however, the ELF reading had dropped to .2
milligauss. After eight minutes of time it decreased to .1, after
twelve minutes it read a steady .0 milligaus.
A noticeable decrease in the motor hum was noted after 13 minutes.
After 15 minutes of operation the coil was de-energized. The
following readings were logged after shutdown (nothing moved or
After 1 min = ELF .1
5 min = .2
10 min = .3
15 min = .4
20 min = .5
25 min = .6
The pattern repeated until the reading had returned to 1.2. Iron
nails that had been placed around the coil showed no signs of
An interesting psychic note: While the coil was in operation we did
a walk through of the field (the strongest effects appeared to be
within a 14 foot radius). One of the Yuggoth Investigators had
recently been through a trip to England and had observed and felt
the presence of ley lines, so the impression was still fresh in his
mind. He reported feeling a strong ley line within 1 foot of the
looped end of the coil. The line orientation was approximately
To verify the dissipation of 60 cycle and harmonic EMF was linked
to coil operation and not a property of the 22,000 RPM motor, the
coil was disconnected and the motor ran for a equal amount of time.
No effect on the ELF meter was observed. This appeared to confirm
the fact that this dissipation effect was a property of the Caduceus
coil. This raised many puzzling questions. Could 60 hertz
(appliance) radiated EMF be canceled by the use of a properly tuned
Why had neither of the effects noted in previous experiments been
observed? What element had been key to the 60 hertz effect - wire
turns, input frequency, orientation, voltage or a combination of
all? We decided it was time to get serious. Since no other
documentation existed on the Caduceus coil, we figured it was time
to write some.
The following equipment was secured in order to put this thing
through it's paces: - HP Signal Generator (1-990 MHZ)
- HP Frequency Counter
- Tektronics Oscope
- HP Function Generator
Our thinking was:
1) We had to have much better control over the input source
2) Needed a wider range of input freq/voltages
3) Needed to establish better testing of effect & coil
properties while energized
4) Devise some type of canary (as a means of sensing hazards)
5) Begin all over to answer the questions listed above
Number 4 came about because of a Yuggoth Investigator's brother who
had stopped work to eat lunch. He didn't realize he was perched in
front of a microwave dish until he began to feel a bit hot (powers
of observation not withstanding).
The point was well taken, but beyond the ELF, Compass, common sense
and the body's ability to quickly transmit pain, we knew of no other
way to protect the lily white of our rears.
One interesting idea we had for measurement is connecting the ELF
meter, or alternatively a large wrap of magnetic wire, and use the
scope to monitor wave changes and increase the frequency range
available to us.
Frequency sweeping of the Caduceus coil is currently underway. All
progress will be made available as documented. We expect completion
