Vangard Note…

The following file is a most curious bit of information we found

in the Journal of Borderland Research. It describes a strange

phenomenon relating to the spinning of a magnet when suspended

over a painful area. There is a possibility that some form of

vortex is being projected and picked up by the magnet. As the

magnet intercepts the vortex, it helps to dissipate the

accumulation of energy which causes the pain and stops its

spinning when that point is reached.

We would greatly appreciate any experiments you might perform in

this area since it could very well benefit a lot of people.



The Balancing Effect of Carbon and Magnet

“Here’s something interesting to report using a COPPER-COATED CARBON

ROD and a big, 15-3/4 pound magnet, with an average Gauss of 2000.

It cost me $7.50 at a surplus store on Canal St. in New York. I

suspended the magnet on a short cord with a loop so that it would

fit easily over my hand while holding it.

“A woman aged 46 had an ovary removed about 8-9 years ago and has

had trouble with the remaining ovary ever since. At the beginning

of menstrual cycles, she would double up with sharp, shooting,

excruciating pains in the remaining ovary area, not each time but

many times. She had such pains last night and being a good friend

of the gal I chum around with, we visited her with the magnet and

carbon rod to ask her if she would be gamr to try something, no

results guaranteed.

When I told her what our plans were she looked insulted! She said

it seemed silly and unworkable but she had nothing to lose, except

maybe part of the pain! So we tried it, following along the lines

suggested by the Goeke Article. I placed the carbon rod against her

back in the approximate position of the remaining ovary, then

suspended the magnet over her lower abdominal area about six inches

above the skin.

It remained MOTIONLESS for about 20 seconds or so, THEN BEGAN


it was really moving, much like a rotating wheel on an axle. I

certainly did not expect this, so stopped the movement manually with

my other hand. It soon STARTED UP AGAIN on this time I let it go.

It stopped in about 1/2 minute OF ITS OWN ACCORD. I then took the

cord but the magnet remained motionless this time.

In about 10 seconds or so it began a slight movement which evolved

into a rather large circle, about six inches across, and this

swinging was in a counter-clockwise direction, exactly the opposite

of the rapid spinning motion just preceding it! “It STOPPED OF ITS

OWN ACCORD IN ABOUT A MINUTE or so and I took the magnet away. We

were so busy talking about the peculiar motion of the magnet we

forgot all about what we had come there for!

I then asked the woman how she felt and the way she said, “I don’t

feel a thing” made me think she had suddenly gone numb! I asked her

again about the pain and then she said what she meant was that she

couldn’t feel any pain anyone. She got up and moved around a bit

but still couldn’t find any trace of pain in that area. I asked her

to concentrate on that area and the pain that had been there, but

even this didn’t bring it back; nor did various body motions that

varied the pressure in that area. All this last night and the pain

hasn’t returned as of this afternoon the following day, and her flow

is fuller than usual.

“What all this means I’m sure I don’t know as this was my first

experience with a magnet and carbon rod. Such a thing may never

happen again. What puzzles me most is the RAPID SPINNING ACTION of

the magnet, as this sort of thing wasn’t discussed as a possibility

in the Goeke article. Let me know if you would like a sample

copper-coated carbon rod.”
