We do not know the approach or the events that directed Rota towards medical applications. A Daily Herald article published on Jan 12, 1922 succinctly mentions the potential medical benefits:
Medicine, it seems is to benefit from the new discoveries no less than industry. Tuberculosis (in early stage ), cancer. fevers, shell-shock, syphilis, neurasthenia and leprosy would, he said, all curable when other methods are reinforced by properly directed earth currents.
The two documents below "Trial for diagnosis and treatment by universal currents" and "Conference by Dr. H KRESSER" are the only publications produced by or in collaboration with Louis Rota.
The image opposite is a "diagnosis sheet" dated 1937. It tells us that Rota's laboratory in Saint Aignan was opened in 1922. We do not know why Rota chose this place, who financed it and what the links were with its activities in England.
The "consultations" he gave there seem to be later (the oldest archive piece dates from 1937). Rota has never clearly explained the meaning of his ratings. Note that Rota did not charge for his "medical services": they were free and considered as participation in his research.
From 1936, Rota carried out his research with the participation of a medical authority, Dr. H. Kresser. The latter was impressed by the results obtained and wrote the preface to Rota's only publication (below)
Be that as it may, it results from the numerous conversations I had with Mr. Rota, from the discussion of the facts, from the comparison of the medical phenomena and the physical phenomena observed by him during his studies on the "Currents Universal”, that the latter deserve to be pursued in the sense of their biological applications.
After several years of collaboration, Dr. Kresser organized a conference in 1939 to present Rota's work.

The brief study that is the subject of this brochure has no other purpose than to draw the public's attention to discoveries whose scope is immense: They illuminate human possibilities with a light so vivid that when we study their origins, we see the foundations of current science shaken origin of the worlds, of the movement of the stars, of light, of electricity, of heat, of magnetism, problems of life and, consequently, disease and death on the surface of the Earth.
The hypotheses emitted hitherto on so many puzzling enigmas are invalidated if one studies the universal Energy which Nature, with implacable logic and marvelous harmony, has dispensed into the Universe and brought within reach and the disposition of man.
What is electricity ? — Static electricity, dynamic electricity, atmospheric electricity, have they a common origin?
Current science says yes; the study of natural currents answers no. Universal Energy provides us with rational movement; it is barbaric to obtain it by means of electric or internal combustion engines.
We get light by using electricity; it is much simpler to use the natural currents from which this energy comes.
We endeavor to manufacture airplanes which can only stay in the air because of their speed — very low indeed — when it is possible, by using the universal Energy, to establish apparatus insensitive to the action of gravity and animated by considerable speeds, bearable by Man at all altitudes.
Thirty years were necessary to discover and control the natural forces which govern the Worlds. The number of their applications is immense. Several of them, of interest to National Defense for example, would shelter our country from any aerial incursion, would give us, at the fairest price, supremacy at sea, would even protect us against any invasion by land, and would thus allow to realize, without treaty or convention, this ideal of peace that all French people want.
Other applications, which are the subject of the short study which will follow, concern all of Humanity, because they are the basis of life on earth, and because, thanks to them, it is possible to detect mathematically the causes of the diseases which lie in wait for us, almost always to relieve them, and, to a certain extent, to suppress them.

It is not for me to confirm or refute the scientific theories of Mr. Rota. They are moreover, as far as I can understand them, of such extent and such complexity that, except perhaps for scholars experienced in the physical and mathematical sciences, they cannot expect control except from the only practical experience.
It was on this ground that I placed Mr. Rota when, through a mutual friend, I had the good fortune to meet him and to discuss with him the possibilities of applying his discoveries to human pathology.
I therefore presented to him, at my Dispensary, a certain number of tuberculosis patients, whom they examined according to his personal method, in my presence and without any questioning, except that relating to the date and place of birth of the subject and his ancestors. , necessary, as we will see in his note, for the orientation of his diagnosis.
For each of these patients, M. Rota has very precisely specified: the pulmonary or extra-pulmonary localization of the tuberculosis, and, in pulmonary tuberculosis patients, the affected side, the seat and extent of the lesions, the latent appearance, chronic or subacute ~ of their evolution.
For one of them, he also instantly noted the coexistence of a recent syphilitic infection, which I had only detected myself with the help of a serological examination.
Following this first trial, which had, one can imagine, greatly interested me, I had the opportunity to have some of the patients of my private clientele examined in my office by M. Rota.
In very different cases (gastrointestinal, vesicular, chronic rheumatism, neuropathic conditions), the results of this examination were equally conclusive, and, without prior questioning, Mr. Rota very quickly determined the nature of the disorders in question, designated the affected organs, sometimes indicated the date of the beginning of the disease, not to mention other more surprising revelations about the morbid antecedents of the subjects, their genital activity (in women) and even some of their psychological tendencies.
I cannot yet make any assessment of the therapeutic results that his method could give. I confined myself to advising him to limit himself, in his attempts on this subject, to the continuation of the sedation of certain general symptoms, such as pain, nervous excitation, insomnia, the modifications of which would be easy to ascertain.
Be that as it may, it results from the numerous conversations I had with Mr. Rota, from the discussion of the facts, from the comparison of the medical phenomena and the physical phenomena observed by him during his studies on the "Currents Universal”, that the latter deserve to be pursued in the sense of their biological applications.

The Universal Currents, Their Influence on Generation and Health.
Having devoted myself for many years to the study of cosmic currents, I was led, little by little, to note that these currents had nothing in common with currents or magnetic fields, nor with the Earth, but that they had an existence of their own.
I successively managed to detect a certain number of them, to control them, to differentiate them by their nature, their qualities, their density, their intensity and their variations. It was then possible for me to classify them, to define the role that each of them plays in the Universe, and this identification currently concerns 361 of them.
During my research, I was led to imagine, build and perfect a device (fig. 2), allowing me to capture these various currents, to highlight their characteristics, at any point of their trajectory, to specify their origin, to specify their qualities and to study their properties.
The universal currents are constant in their direction, but variable in their intensity and density. They are at the origin of the Worlds, ensure the mechanism of the Universe and dispense life and death therein.
The characteristics of a current, at a given time and in a given place, reproduce with a frequency that it has been possible to determine. The laws that govern them are, in fact, immutable.
The universal currents create, maintain, modify, suppress organic and inorganic life on Earth.
The variations that they undergo in density and intensity are the causes of the actions and reactions that they operate on each other, according to places and times. They give rise to phenomena that we observe without always being able to explain them.
Among the latter, one of those whose study I have, for a long time, more particularly developed, is that of the conception of beings.
Conception (and not birth) is due to a physical phenomenon and a chemical phenomenon.
The existence of these two phenomena is conditioned by natural currents.
All formation, or conception, in the animal kingdom, is a function of the simultaneous action of three currents: that of the male, that of the female, that of the place where the bringing together of these has occurred.
The current of each of the generators, either A for the male, or B for the female, is that which had an intensity greater than that of all the other currents, in the place and at the time when each of them was itself designed.
The current of the place, C, is that which prevailed in intensity over all the other currents in the precise place where the bringing together of the two generators occurred.
If the intensity and density of A, B and C are equal at the time of the reproductive act, the chemical phenomenon constituted by the union of the male pronucleus and the female pronucleus can occur; the first segmentation core is formed; the first cell of the new being VIT.
But if, for example, the density of A is greater than that of B, there is no combined action of three forces, but action of A on B and reaction of B on A, the phenomenon of fertilization is hindered, there is no “LIFE”.
The physico-chemical phenomenon of which life is the consequence can therefore only take place under the conditions established above. The chemical phenomenon more particularly due to the effects of the currents A and B, concerns the organic and inorganic parts of the embryonic cell; the physical phenomenon, which allows the chemical phenomenon to take place under the influence of the various intracellular actions of electricity, magnetism, heat, gravitation, is more specifically conditioned by the current C (local current).
It is therefore observed that the cell lives, develops and dies under the influence of the current C.
We can, in fact, verify that, on the corpse, the current C no longer has any reactions. So much so that, if the latter persist, it is permissible to affirm that the subject in experience is still alive, despite appearances.
When there is balance between the physical forces and the chemical functions of the cell, this one is normal, it is therefore in good health.
When there is an imbalance between these forces, the cell is diseased. If the physical action ceases in the cell, it dies.
In a corpse, organic and inorganic matter still exist, but life has ceased, the current C no longer reacts. We thus see how important the current of the place of conception is on the health of the cell.
One can, ultimately, deduce from what precedes, that, if one knows the place and the time when the conception of a being occurred, one knows its own current, that is to say that under whose influence his life, and consequently his physical and even moral health, will be placed.
If we also know the place and the time when his father and his mother were conceived and if we can consequently determine the current specific to each of them, we can deduce the action of these currents on the current proper to the being they have procreated, that is to say the atavistic influences of the latter.
Consequently, knowing the specific current of this being and the favorable or unfavorable influences of his atavism, we will be able, at each moment of his life, by noting the variations of this current, to detect in him the state of normal health or of illness.
In fact, given the physical and chemical constitution of any organ whatsoever (heart, stomach, lungs, etc.), it can be seen that this organ, when its state is normal, acts in a fixed and constant manner on the current of the body. individual who owns it.
Experience proves that a healthy organ (O) has this own current, and that the number of these reactions, perfectly perceptible at the microphone, is determined by the physical and chemical constitution of this organ.
Therefore, if with the help of a special device we record a number of reactions N' different from N., we can mathematically conclude that the organ O is sick. The smaller N' is, the sicker O will be; if N' becomes zero and if O is essential to life, the subject will die.
This experience is the basis of the mathematical diagnosis made by my method, the accuracy of which Dr. Kresser was kind enough to verify in a certain number of cases submitted by him to my examination.
Mathematical Diagnosis based on Universal Currents.
My method of mathematical diagnosis assumes known, as I explained above
These conditions having been met, I use a certain number of devices, each consisting of several metals, the role of which it is therefore necessary to specify and to justify their use.
I explained, at the beginning of this note, that the universal currents sustain organic and inorganic life on Earth. I must add here that some of these currents are at the origin of all crystallization, terrestrial or universal. This made it possible to determine how, at the birth of our planet, each of its elements was constituted by the combined action, under certain conditions, of several currents, and consequently contains a quantity of energy due to the action of those who contributed to its formation.
By bringing together particles of different metals, and subjecting them to an appropriate treatment, using my devices, it is possible to somehow awaken this latent energy.
Take for example a piece of copper. Copper is formed through the combined action of four currents D, C, F, G.
If the energy contained in this piece of copper is awakened, the natural currents D, C, F, G will undergo, through this piece of copper, the action of other currents with which it will be brought into contact.
If therefore the observer, examining a subject whose proper current he knows as well as those of his ascendants, puts the left hand of this subject in contact, for example, with a block of copper, he will be able, with the aid of headphones connected by a conductor and an appropriate detector, perceive, aurally, the number, the rhythm, the timbre and the intensity of the reactions provided by the organs of the subject that he explores, on the subject's own current and on those specific to the copper block.
In practice, the devices are multi-metallic. The operator thus has a large number of currents at his disposal and uses this kind of keyboard according to the currents specific to the subject, his ascendants and the currents of the places. He notes the number and other particularities of the reactions transmitted by the headset, and, having access to a veritable metallic scale, he proceeds to very many combinations likely to enlighten him on the particular reactions of the different organs of the subject. As he knows, by hypothesis, the characteristics of the normal reactions of these organs, he is free to grasp, by simple hearing, which of them presents a pathological alteration as well as the more or less accentuated degree of this alteration. The study of the particular reactions to the specific ascending currents, determined in advance, allows him, moreover, to specify, if necessary, the atavistic origin of these organic defects.
If the operator is experienced, he can predict, all other things being equal, whether the disease will evolve quickly or slowly, and even specify the time when its evolution will occur, thanks to in-depth knowledge of the characteristics of the different currents.
Each organ of the human body has its own physical and chemical constitution.
The cell is made up of a certain number of imponderables in determined quantities
MAGNETISM, ELECTRICITY, HEAT, ATTRACTION.
Magnetism is an energy that does not contain heat and is necessary for the production of oxygen.
Electricity is a less powerful energy than the previous one, because it is, in reality, only a derivation of energy.
Heat is the consequence of the actions of electricity and magnetism; it is a transformation of energy.
Universal attraction is the force that keeps all molecules in balance.
These first indications make it possible to understand why it is noted in therapy that the action of electricity can be momentarily beneficial to certain organs, but that it can bring more or less rapid and more or less significant disturbances, either to the treated organ, or to others. This harmful action depends on the own current of the subject under experiment and on the current of the region where he was conceived. Knowledge of these last two forces therefore makes it possible to specify in advance whether an electrical treatment will be harmful or favorable to a given disease.
When the physical forces of an organ are in balance, the said organ is in good condition; otherwise, he is sick.
Mathematical diagnosis immediately makes it possible to verify whether or not there is a balance between the forces that enter into the physical composition of an organ; we have been able to determine, in fact, how many reactions each organ gives to such and such a metal treated with the aid of appropriate currents. If the number of reactions is smaller than normal, it can be concluded that the organ is diseased. Now, a medicine composed of inorganic matter can have a salutary influence on him, but it can, at the same time, be harmful to a neighboring organ.
By rationally applying a current appropriate to the disease of the organ and to the current of the subject being tested, it is then mathematically certain that the radiation will go to the aid of the momentarily insufficient physical force in the affected organ, and that it will will have no influence on others.
For example, giving oxygen to a lung is supplying it with the magnetism it lacks. The action of an appropriate current will, in this circumstance, have the same effect. The heat recommended to a person with a cold can be replaced by the action of several metal plates treated with appropriate currents.
When the universal attraction is in insufficient quantity in the cell, the subject feels a weariness which is difficult to overcome; this kind of fatigue can be ameliorated in the manner just indicated.
From the chemical point of view, the cell, that is to say the organ, comprises a certain number of organic and inorganic materials which are in precise quantities in a given individual.
If there is excess or deficiency of one or more materials, the organ is diseased. This anomaly, temporary or permanent, comes from causes acquired by the subject, or from atavistic reasons, or from the region in which it was conceived.
In the cell, inorganic matter dominates, if not in quantity, at least in quality. Its presence is due to the action of the currents of each inorganic matter on the own current of the individual, and on that of the place where it was conceived.
The mathematical diagnosis allows, it is understood by what precedes, to detect the presence of iron for example, in excess or in deficiency in an organ in experiment. If we know the specific current of the subject and that of the place of conception, it is even possible to determine the cause of this anomaly, as well as the repercussions it may have on the present and future health of the organ.
Therapeutic application of Universal currents
Mathematical diagnosis thus allows, it is understood, the scientific study, although very complex in truth, of a large number of diseases. But it also made it possible in certain cases to determine the influence of the place on the development or the arrest of a pathological process in a given subject.
This is how practical experience has proven that such a tuberculous patient, for example, will see his disease take on an evolutionary appearance if he stays in a certain region, whereas on the contrary it will remain latent if he lives in another. . It is the same, and under conditions that my method has very clearly specified, for most cancer patients.
The explanation of these facts, which I would be able to provide, would go beyond the scope of this note, but the study of natural currents applied to pathology has enabled me to consider the means of warding off the evolution of a large number of affections, and, in certain cases, to hope for a cure.
Moreover, these means flow very logically from what I have explained previously.
The own current of a tuberculous subject, taken as an example, undergoes, when it stays in a point A, an unfavorable influence (weakening of its reactions), because of the local current. At a point B, on the contrary, there is a current which will exert on the current proper to the same subject, a salutary influence (increase of reactions). It follows that the transport of the patient from point A to point B will increase the resistance of his organism to tuberculosis infection, and will stop the evolution of this affection.
The validity of such indications has already been verified in practice.
But circumstances may not permit moving a patient from an unfavorable region to a favorable one.
I was led to consider the construction of different devices (bed bases, metal plates), which, subject to an appropriate treatment, to a kind of loading of currents suitable for each particular case, could be made available to patients. . And it is permissible to suppose that those brought into contact, either permanent or semi-permanent, with these beneficent influences, would draw from them therapeutic effects analogous to those which would produce in them the transport in regions, which contingencies can make it inaccessible and where these conditions are achieved by local currents.

LE COSMO-DYNAMISME ET SES APPLICATIONS A LA MEDECINE
Exposé des Travaux de M. L. G. V. ROTA.
Before I start, much of this talk will present passages which are difficult and abstract. Allow me therefore to read you to read a sonnet.
Vous allez me trouver peut-être bien frivole, pour un homme de science, mais vous reviendrez très vite, je l’espère, sur ce jugement téméraire.
C’est un sonnet de Gérard de Nerval, qui se trouve dans « Les Chimères », et que voici :
Homme, libre penseur Te crois-tu seul pensant
Dans ce monde ou la vie éclate en toutes choses ?
Des forces que tu tiens ta liberté dispose,
Mais de tous tes conseils l’univers est absent.
Respecte dans la bête un esprit agissant;
Chaque fleur est une âme à la nature éclose;
Un mystère d’amour dans le métal repose;
« Tout est sensible! » Et tout sur ton être est puissant.
Crains, dans le mur aveugle, un regard qui t’épie:
A la matière même un verbe est attaché...
Ne la fais pas servir à quelque chose impie
Souvent dans l’être obscur habite un dieu caché;
Et, comme un oeil naissant couvert par ses paupières,
Un pur esprit s’accroît sous l’écorce des pierres!
Ces vers, du grand illuminé que fut le malheureux poète, ne sont pas seulement admirables. Ils témoignent de la singulière intuition qu’avait leur auteur de l’intime interdépendance de l’homme et de la nature, de la créature humaine et du Cosmos, et vous verrez que la lecture de ce sonnet n’est pas de ma part une inopportune fantaisie, et que, par une singularité, d’ailleurs plus fréquente qu’il ne pourrait le paraître possible, l’imagination du poète qui m’a fourni mon exorde rejoint la pensée profonde du savant qui m’apportera ma conclusion.
After following this matter for some months, a senior officer of the Navy, very current with scientific and medical matters and the head of a most important engineering department, concluded “You are forty years in advance of modern physics”.
Also you will not be astonished if I come this evening to bring you some surprising facts, that speak of natural forces which are, up to now, unknown, and to propose that medicine, whatever progress we have achieved in fifty years, bases itself on these new and methods, and since in addition some of my eminent colleagues agreed to answer our invitation, I request them earnestly not to baulk at the unknown and innovative facts and theories, but listen without preconceived ideas, because I affirm myself ready to submit to their tests and to their discussion all that I will expose here in.
It seems essential first of all, to present the circumstances which lead me to take an interest in this work.
M.Rota was born in Italy, in Piemont; his forbears originating in Savoy and in Corsica, one of them lost an arm at Austerlitz. After having frequented various private schools, he continued scientific studies under the direction of the great savant Secchi.
From adolescence M. Rota showed, in the natural and mathematical sciences, an out of the ordinary intelligence as shown by his embarrassing questions and deductions put to his professors.
Animated by a surplus of drive and scientific curiosity, he was not content to just assimilate knowledge of contemporary science, but already, by his original studies he was seeking to augmenting and outstrip.
Towards 1910, using the known laws of science, he commenced research into the so called telluric currents.
He thought initially that this latter were of a magnetic nature and he conducted, in consequence, his first experiments and research on the concentration of electromagnetic waves of long wavelength using the earth as a collecting agent.
As a result he designed and constructed in his laboratory at Marseilles in 1914, 1915 an electromagnetic “stabilisateur” on a small scale, with which he made his first tests in open air; experiments that gave results that surpassed his expectation.(These are related in Le Matin, September 15th 1915). But he had not foreseen that after he had lightly touched the apparatus he was thrown brutally to earth where he remained unconscious for 50 minutes….
Mais n’est-ce pas précisément la marque du génie, de tirer de l’observation d’un fait banal en apparence, des déductions d’une incalculable importance?
Rappelez-vous Galilée devant les oscillations d’un lustre dans la Cathédrale de Pise, ayant la révélation des lois du pendule; Papin devant le couvercle soulevé d’une bouilloire pressentant la force utilisable de la vapeur d’eau; Galvani, devant son balcon où pendaient des cuisses de grenouilles animées de contractions, conduit par ce phénomène à devancer Volta dans la conception de sa pile; Malus, regardant à la fenêtre de sa chambre, à travers un cristal de spath les rayons du soleil couchant, réfléchis dans les vitres du Palais du Luxembourg, constatant la rotation de la lumière polarisée; Pasteur, enfin, dans les champs maudits de la Beauce parsemés de petits tas de terre rejetés par les vers à la surface du sol, réalisant, dans un éclair génial, comment les spores du charbon remontaient des charognes contaminées, hâtivement enfouies, au pied des herbes que viendraient brouter les animaux sains.
Furthermore, since the young Rota utilized for his stabilisiteur a source of electricity of very low intensity he asked how such a minimal force had been magnified into a force capable of giving him such a shock.
Having eliminated a certain number of hypotheses, he was forced to the view that there existed at the moment of the experiment an unknown natural force of very high power that had multiplied the intensity of the electrical energy employed.
It required years of perseverant research to identify the force, the mysterious “x” in the equation. It would need more time than we have at our disposal to describe the stages which lead M. Rota to discover the existence of the 361 currents which he described as Universal.
It is sufficient, moreover, to visit the facility at Mont-Saint-Aignan in Seine-Inferieure where M. Rota has installed his geophysical and geodynamic centre which cost millions and years of work to realise what considerable work he has done.
M. Rota has installed his geophysical and geodynamic centre which cost millions and years of work to realise what considerable work he has done. Strange and voluminous multi-metallic blocks are buried at great depth in the soil and from which lead hundreds of cables. These are connected together to form some nine kilometers of aerial and subterranean cables. These cables end up in concrete sheds or “block-houses” where delicate apparatus allows them to be interconnected in an infinity of combinations. In the central building where all the cable end up a large apparatus, entirely designed and constructed by M. Rota, allows him to control the universal currents, to disclose their characteristic and to show their direction, origin, qualities and to study their properties.
What are the Universal Currents ?
According to M. Rota they are constant in their direction, but variable in their intensity and density, depending on the time and place. They are at the origin of worlds, assuring the mechanism of the universe and dispensers of life and death.
The characteristic of a current at a given time and in a given place are reproduced with a frequency which it has been possible to determine. The laws which govern them are in effect immutable.
The Universal Currents create, maintain, modify, remove organic and inorganic life on the earth.
The variations of intensity and density which occur are the causes of the actions and reactions which operate the one upon the other according to the place and époque. They give rise to phenomena which can be verified without being able always to explain them.
But, you may say, M. Rota up to now is the only person to know of the existence of these currents, how is it that no one else has ever seen them?
Permit me to say to you that in nature there may well be other unknown forces.
There are effects, as with these universal currents, where an event occurs which does not seem to have a known cause. This has been noticed by certain Savants and certain researchers such as Gustave Le Bon, whom I had the honor to attend in the latter years of his life. I recall his prophetic views now that I have been able to confront them with the discoveries of M. Rota.
There are other forces with complicated laws that we have harnessed and utilize each day in various diverse forms without knowing what they are, magnetism, radio waves, x-rays etc.. To stick to most frequently employed force electricity, one knows it only by the defined phenomena which it causes and by its uses.
If you pass a magnet over a piece of iron it becomes magnetized, why? What are electricity and electromagnetism? fluids, gas vibrations? I would be very astonished if somebody among you could answer that question.
And yet these force exist about us in nature, we are reduced to producing them artificially with great supplies of steam, petrol motors, water wheels and excessively complicated machinery: dynamos, transformers, intermediaries without doubt useless, and also, is it not true, at great expense.
And yet these force exist about us in nature, we are reduced to producing them artificially with great supplies of steam, petrol motors, water wheels and excessively complicated machinery: dynamos, transformers, intermediaries without doubt useless, and also, is it not true, at great expense.
But we will here open up the mass of discoveries made by this inventor.
The universal currents conditioning the movement of worlds, they affect the earth and we must be grateful for without them we would go into the infinite. When there is a lack of accord between them we feel annoying effects; tidal waves, earthquakes and even stranger the appearance of social disturbance.
This brings to mind a conversation had between M. Rota, Commandant Lachouque and myself, the first time that the latter took me to Mont-Saint-Aignan.
“ We enter, said he, a period from 1936 to 1946 where certain currents in certain places and at certain dates will produce strange effects. For example, I am able, to indicate that there will be the reappearance of events where suddenly an individual considered up to that point normal will massacre anyone using the first instrument of death which is at hand”.
Do not the daily statements in the press show how prophetic these words were?
And, regarding this, I recently read about a revolt among young people detainees at the penitentiary of Aniane in which the guards were astonished that this mutiny had occurred in January because generally negative events explode at the time of the equinox .
It is true that the equinoxes are the period where M. Rota passes his days and nights leaning over his apparatus because certain universal currents at that time reach formidable intensities. Are there not equinoctial tides? It is well verified, that this was exactly the time of his initial experiment at Marseilles, that caused him to be knocked out several times.
But I have to ask your indulgence with this devil of a man and his ideas, one is constantly dragged along despite oneself in many different directions.
I will voluntarily leave it others more qualified than myself that may care to expose the principles of other applications of his discoveries regarding the Universal energy rather than the results obtained. We have heard already of a motor that would replace our old and very expensive motors; why wireless and television suffer from atmospherics and how these could be radically suppressed; how it would be possible to prevent aircraft crashes; how one can discover now and without possible errors deposits of the ores of metals and oil at a great distance. It will be possible to realise many application of great interest, at this time, and above all to produce evidence to convince the most Cartesian among you.
To those who are surprised by this multiplicity of applications, I will take the liberty of recalling what Pasteur said:
“The characteristic of true theories is to be the very expression of facts, to be commanded and dominated by them, to be able to foresee new facts with certainty because these are by nature linked to the first. one word, proper to true theories, is fecundity."
For now, I will limit myself to the role that, according to M.Rota, the universal currents play in the domain of life and animated beings, man in particular and how we can apply what we know in the study of illnesses and their treatment.
Given what is known of the universal currents it is tempting to study what influence they have on human life and it is no exaggeration to say that the consequences are immense in particular in connection with conception.
For M. Rota conception (not the birth) is due both to physical and chemical phenomenon, and the existence of these two phenomena are conditioned by the natural currents.
All formation or conception in the realm of the animal is a function of the simultaneous action of three currents: that of the male, that of the female and that of the place where conception takes place.
The current of each of the parents called A for the male, B for the female is that which has the greatest intensity compared with all the other currents in the place and at the moment when each one was conceived. It is the dominant current which overrides all the others.
The current of the place C is that which exceeds in intensity all the others in the precise place and at the moment when the junction of the generators [sperm and egg] occurs.
If the intensity of A, B and C are equal at that moment of the act of reproduction, the chemical phenomena constituted by the union of the male sperm and female egg is able to occur. The first nucleus of segmentation is made, that is the first cell of new living being.
But if for example the density of A is greater than the density of B, there will be no conjoined action between the three forces but action of A on B and reaction of B on A, the phenomenon of life is blocked; there is no life.
The chemical phenomena, which are more particularly due to the effects of currents A and B have an effect on the organic and inorganic parts of the embryonic cell. The physical phenomena which allow chemical phenomena to be realised are under the intercellular influence of electricity, magnetism, heat and gravitation [cohesion] and is more especially conditioned by the current of the place C.
The living cell develops and dies under the influence of current C and one can detect this in practice; if C reacts on a living being (and one can clearly perceive these reactions) on a cadaver there are no reactions.
Finally it is (apart from what the being gets from his father and mother) the current of the place at the moment of conception, which not only permits the latter , but also will have an influence on his /her development, normal or abnormal throughout his whole life.
In other terms, if the place and moment of conception are known, his/her characteristic current is known, that is to say that current on which his/her life and in consequence his/her health, physical and moral, will depend.
Furthermore if the place and time of conception of his/her mother and father are known, it is possible to determine the characteristic current of both of them and then determine the action of these currents on the characteristic current of their son/daughter, that is to say the atavistic influence of the currents.
I will remark in passing the light thrown by these theories on our confused knowledge regarding heredity and atavism, and consequently it illustrates another consequence no less important of the discoveries of M. Rota.
Knowing therefore the proper current of the person and its influences, and the favorable or unfavorable affect of atavistic influences, it is possible, at any instant of his life to check the variations of these currents and find out whether his/her health is normal or abnormal.
In effect, given the chemical and physical constitution of any organ (heart, lungs, stomach etc.) one can verify that when the organ is in a healthy state it reacts, for a given place of conception, on the current of the individual that posses it in a specific way.
M. Rota verified by experience that a healthy organ O reacts N times on its own current, and that the number of reactions, perfectly audible in a headphone [earpiece] is determined by the physical and chemical constitution of that organ.
In consequence with the aide of special apparatus one registers a certain number of reactions N’ different from N one can conclude mathematically that the organ O is sick. The smaller N' is, the sicker O will be; if N' becomes zero and if O is essential to life, the subject will die.
This experimental verification is the basis of the examination which M. Rota calls mathematical (and to which I would like better to call Cosmo-Dynamism). Given that the method works and I have in great part verified the cases exactly that I submitted to him.
Now is the time to leave abstraction and make a tour of the facts. It is almost four years that through the intermediary of a common friend, Commandant Lachouque, I became acquainted with M. Rota and he described to me these medical theories:-
“Your ideas. I said to him are, a priori, very strange. They run up against, in more than one point all that was taught me and all that I learned in thirty years of medical practice. But as I fully aware, and with me of the majority of sincere doctors, it is that I do not know everything. I am inclined to believe you on condition that that we place ourselves on the only ground where I can discuss with you check you regarding the method...
Your ideas. I said to him are, a priori, very strange. They run up against, in more than one point all that was taught me and all that I learned in thirty years of medical practice. But as I fully aware, and with me of the majority of sincere doctors, it is that I do not know everything. I am inclined to believe you on condition that that we place ourselves on the only ground where I can discuss with you check you regarding the method."
M. Rota accepted my invitation, but before going into it further I will give you an idea of the way in which he works.
He method as I have mentioned previously,
These conditions being realised, he uses a certain number of apparatus which are made each of many metals which are needed for precision.
For M. Rota the universal currents assure the organic and inorganic life on the earth and certain of them are at the origin of all crystallization terrestrial or universal.
This has allowed him to determine how at the birth of our planet each one of the elements has been formed by the conjoined action of certain conditions and numerous currents, which enclose in consequence a quantity of energy due to action of those currents which have contributed to the elements formation.
In reuniting therefore particles of different metals and then submitting them to an appropriate treatment (which is rendered possible by his installation at Mont-Saint-Aignan) it is possible to awaken to some extent this latent energy in the metal.
Take for example a piece of copper. The copper is formed by the conjugate action of four currents C,D,E,F. If the energy contained in the piece of copper is awaked or revealed the natural currents C,D,E,F which traverse the piece of copper can be subjected to the action of other currents with which they are put in contact.
If the observer examines a subject, given that the current of the subject and his two parents are known, the observer puts the left hand of the subject in contact with say a block of copper in which the currents are awakened the observer can hear with aid of headphones connected by a conductor to an appropriate detector, the number, rhythm, the timbre and the intensity of these reactions furnished by the organs of the subject being explored on the current of the subject and on those of the block of copper.
In practice, the apparatus are multi-metallic. The operator has at his disposal a great number of currents and utilizes a sort of keyboard according to the part of the subject being explored.
The note, the number, and the particulars of the reactions are transmitted by the headphone. Having available a veritable gamut of metals, the procedure is to use the very numerous combinations to show the reactions of the different organs of the subject.
As he knows the characteristic normal reactions of the organs, it is easy for him by simple listening to find those of them which show a pathological alteration, also the degree more or less of the alteration.
The study of the currents connected with the parents determined in advance, allows him to define further, if it is needed, the atavistic origin of any organic defects.
If the operator experiments, he can foresee other things besides, whether the illness will evolve rapidly or slowly up to the terminal point of the illness and similarly to specify the time it will take for its evolution to occur. That is thanks to the profound knowledge of the different characteristics of the different currents.
Let us return now to these concrete facts which may give you some rest from theory and also I hope enlighten you; because M. Rota and his apparatus, operative according to principles' which I have just tried to explain to you, and with the patients that I presented him with, gave me a clear demonstration of the cogency of his method. Not only without error on tuberculosis subjects, indicating the infected lung but furthermore the site of the lesion, said whether the latter was latent or active and even more remarkably the existence of a specific evolving illness in a young women that presented no symptoms, the existence of maculo-papules on the breast which he had not been able to see since the person was clothed, as in the case with all the other patients, and where I needed myself an examination of blood to ascertain with certainty the existence of this infection.
Is this not an extraordinary result?
M. Rota does not play at medicine. He deliberately avails himself of all that constitutes the elements of medical diagnosis: Questioning, examination palpation, percussion, auscultation, use of the laboratory.
The process of physico-chemical examination is absolutely original, and, you may ask how a medical method which deprived of the usual means of investigation could be capable of giving the sort of precision that he clearly brought to me.
He thus acted for me from these first contacts, with a rigorously scientific method, and the results of the first tests have been followed by others regarding illnesses that we have examined together for many years.
But, it has to be said that this method only has value when applied by M. Rota. It has taken him many years to educate his ear to recognize the timbre, intensity of the 361 currents that he has identified, using a chronometer to note their delicate variations. If doctors desired to assimilate his methods, it would take them ten or twenty years to acquire enough virtuosity to get practical results.
This objection has not escaped either M. Rota or myself, and the transformation of the auditory method to a graphical method or some even simpler method will be studied with the hope of arriving at its realization.
It is useless to insist besides on its possibilities which are evident. The interpretation furnished by such examination could be facilitated by the construction of a table put at the disposal of doctors, in order to avoid the complicated calculations and do as well as the inventor of this method.
I have arrived now at a more enthralling side to the discoveries that we summarize. I would like to mention the connection between the geographic orientation of life, racial origin and the treatment of certain illnesses. You already know that according to M. Rota a living being is placed under the “sign” of universal current which at the time and place of conception has the greatest density and intensity than all the other currents.
This is the current which gives the being life and which influences, for good or bad, the being for the duration of its life and contains the power for good or ill on its development.
This action of the current of the individual is added to you, will remember, the currents of the two parents determined by the same factors.
In the course of life the influence of the currents or better, the result of these currents could somewhere be modified for good or bad by the influence of other currents from the place where the individual lives, attaining at certain times a preponderant density and intensity.
I must explain because this notion is of major importance:
Here is an infant which is born in Paris. His current, that which at his conception was dominant renders him susceptible to tuberculosis ( I remark in passing that our current medical knowledge is pretty vague on the factors regarding susceptibility). On the other hand the current of mother and that of the infant atavistically reinforce this tendency. If the infant continues to live in Paris the two influences combine and at some later time will undoubtedly lead to illness.
But if the infant is moved to a certain point in Savoy for example where the action of a predetermined current acts to counter balance and dominate the effects of the infant’s own current and that of the mother it will escape the fatal effects of the malady.
Very well, if (assuming the facts of the current of the mother are known) the conception of the infant occurs at a place and at a moment determined in advance under the influence of a favorable current, the menace of tuberculosis would no longer exist for him.
From these simple examples, which I hope are clear to you, as far as their innovation goes, it is not difficult to see facts which could be of enormous importance, arising out of the discoveries of M. Rota. It is evident, that with simple knowledge of the parents’ currents, that it would be possible to determine the place and time of conception which would be favorable which would assure the health the infant and of its descendants.
This is, is it not true, the moment to remember Taine, who had, you may remember, built up a theory on the fact that a foreigner, living in France, and having married a foreigner, had had children with French characteristics.
A good point for Taine... and for my honorable neighbor.
From the point of view of the Geographical Orientation of existence, these discoveries also offer the possibility of fixing the region and the times when the chances of neutralizing the defects of a given subject would reach their maximum.
The cases are innumerable of these patients, who, for reasons not well known to doctors, cannot endure the stay in such and such a region. Fog, humidity, wind, altitude are blamed haphazardly.
It is enough to have read in the "Médecine Générale Française" the report of the "Assises Nationales de la Météoro-Pathologie" and the remarkable synthesis made of it by Dr. Henri Goldewski, to appreciate all the interest shown by the physicians studying the relationships between biological, physiological and pathological phenomena and natural phenomena, such as heat, cold, storms, wind, rain, snow, fog, seasons; the lunar cycle, electromagnetic influences, etc. as evidenced by the names of our eminent colleagues: Charles Richet, Lecat, Lesné, Lereboullet, Comby, Dubois de Saujon, Schmidt, de Strasbourg, Barthélemy, Courcoux, Humbot, Sainton, Dujarric de la Rivière, Sédillot and many others.
But we also see the uncertainty of a science which, in the words of Charles Richet, “is in the process of getting organized”.
And if we admit, in the light of the theories exposed this evening, that there is a universal current of rain (or, more exactly, precipitation), and that cold. And heat, simple degradations of natural energy (in which the sun only plays an episodic role, for it is in the coldest season: that it is closest to us, and its presence takes nothing away from the dreadful consequences of the "good little dry cold") are, as well as the other simple meteorological phenomena; effects of inter-reactions of universal currents, don't you see ~ that it is this time a constant action that we know thereby both the cause of cosmic and meteorological disturbances and the cause of their influence on human and animal life.
We hold the common thread capable of guiding medical science in a direction, infinitely complex, certainly, but which will not fail to be prodigiously fruitful.
Thus, for imprecisions, M. Rota substitutes mathematical precision, and can say: this is where the patient must live to be well. Isn't that great progress? And, even, when we think about it, aren't these details likely to shed some light on certain distressing problems, such as that of the pathogenesis of cancer, for example?
I was still reading recently, in a study by Dr. Robert Cornilleau, published in “l’Esprit Médical”, of January 6, 1939, these lines on “The hormonal conception of cancer”:
"However, in recent years, a glimmer has arisen, and precisely thanks to the development of endocrinology. The problem of cancer no longer lies entirely in the study of the tumor. There is agreement in recognizing in this the localization of a tendency, the result of an intrinsic disturbance of the cellular life and which is due to a certain number of causes.
Do you see, like me, the glow of which Dr. Cornilleau speaks grow, reinforced by the revelations of Mr. Rota?
From the point of view of the treatment of confirmed diseases: cancer, tuberculosis, arthritis, to limit ourselves to these widespread scourges, the latter finally provide new, effective therapeutic aid..., and, as you will see later, physical.
However, a difficulty arose in their application in practice: that of fixing the place of conception or life, in regions whose individual or family conveniences and possibilities make access and residence impractical. Now, it is here that the work of Mr. Rota acquires all its value, because this difficulty has already been overcome.
I have already had the opportunity to tell you that the universal currents have long been controlled at Mont-Saint-Aignan, in the form of fluids, forced to follow conductors and to combine, in connection devices, with their congeners, forming the most varied and complex associations.
Learn now that with the help of these currents, Mr. Rota awakens the latent energy of metals of which he constitutes different treatment devices mattresses, pillows, plates, helmets, belts, which retain this energy for a fixed period of time.
It is therefore no longer necessary to seek on the spot a favorable universal current; we can have this current at home, as we have X-rays, U.V. rays or simple electric current.
And do not believe that we are here in the realm of dreams and chimeras. All this is achieved practically and thanks to the stubbornness of research carried out for several years, at the cost of a thousand difficulties, ready to be made available today to doctors and their patients.
I am not advancing anything of which I am not sure, since I am able to bring you, better than affirmations, results. For some time now, in fact, I have thought myself authorized to undertake, with the technical assistance of my friend Rota, a certain number of therapeutic trials using various apparatus treated at the Station of Mont-Saint-Aignan.
By submitting to you the first of the observations relating to these tests; I have, at the same time, the very great joy of accomplishing an act of gratitude, because this first observation is a self-observation, and I have to present to you, in my person, one of the first patients miraculously miraculated by my friend Rota.
Miraculous is not too much, judge:
Il est bon, tout d’abord, de vous dire qu’il y a quatre ans, lorsque je fis la connaissance de M. Rota, celui-ci m’ayant examiné à sa façon dans le seul but de me montrer sa technique, me dit :
"Mon cher Docteur, si vous ne vous reposez pas, dans quatre ans, vous ne pourrez plus marcher."
Ayant à ce moment bon pied, bon oeil, et possédant au surplus cette indifférence que la plupart des médecins professent au regard de leur propre santé, je n’attachai aucune importance à cette prédiction.
Or, il advint que deux ans ou deux ans et demi plus tard, je commençai à ressentir dans la hanche droite quelques douleurs assez importunes. Surmené par une clientèle de médecine générale, j’ai vu cette affection progresser très rapidement. Les souffrances éprouvées, la claudication de plus en plus accentuée, la gêne croissante des mouvements, ne tardèrent pas à faire de ma vie journalière un véritable martyre. Il me fallut bientôt plusieurs minutes pour aller, le matin, de mon lit à mon cabinet de toilette.
Des confrères consultés, des radiographies prises, confirmèrent le diagnostic que je pressentais j’étais atteint d’une coxarthrie de la hanche droite, consécutive à plusieurs traumatismes et liée sans doute aussi à une fâcheuse hérédité arthritique.
En vain, j’essayai tour à tour tous les traitements usuels, sauf le repos que mes occupations m’interdisaient. Injections d’histamine, de soufre, d’iode, diathermie, rayons X, ne m’apportèrent aucun soulagement et j’avais repoussé avec horreur les suggestions d’éminents confrères spécialistes, qui me proposaient, soit une opération, dont le nom de forage ne m’inspirait pas suffisamment, soit une immobilisation de 11 à 15 mois dans un plâtre pour obtenir l’ankylose de ma hanche,c’est-à-dire supprimer être la douleur mais aussi me rendre définitivement infirme.
J’en étais donc arrivé à ce moyen extrême, terriblement pénible pour moi, tous ceux qui aiment leur travail me comprendront, d’abandonner ma clientèle pour me soumettre à un repos complet à la campagne, ce que je fis le 15 avril dernier.
Mon ami Rota n’avait pas manqué, vous le pensez bien, de me proposer un traitement, c’est-à-dire un matelas convenablement traité par lui. Mais à Paris, obligé que j’étais de me coucher parfois à minuit et de me lever à 6 heures et demie du matin, sans préjudice des réveils et des levers nocturnes imposés par la clientèle, ce traitement ne présentait aucune chance de continuité, nécessaire à un résultat efficace.
Absorbé par les soucis de mon installation définitive à la campagne et par l’intronisation de mon successeur à Paris, ce ne fut que le 24 octobre que je pus m’étendre pour la première fois sur un lit de cure Rota pourvu de fils et de connexions mystérieux, traités par lui, spécialement pour moi, et en provenance directe de- Mont-Saint-Aignan.
Les six premières semaines furent sans histoire. Je dois seulement à la vérité de dire que j’ai trouvé ma nouvelle couche fort agréable, à la fois souple et indéformable ainsi que génératrice d’une confortable chaleur, et aussi d’avouer à notre ami, que, -possédé du démon de l’activité, malgré mon infirmité, je n’ai que rarement suivi sa prescription de m’y étendre pendant deux heures de l’après-midi, dérobées à ces jours brefs de fin d’automne.
Mais dès le début de décembre, sans que rien ne vint l’annoncer, une transformation extraordinaire s’opéra en moi. Tout d’abord mon état général, fortement ébranlé par les souffrances des deux dernières années, se releva de façon imprévue. Chacun me faisait compliment sur ma mine, et, presque soudainement, les douleurs que je ressentais s’atténuèrent, mes mouvements devinrent plus libres, ma claudication diminua.
Ces faits frappèrent mon entourage, mais j’avais moi-même un certain nombre de points de repère pour me convaincre qu’ils n’étaient pas dus à une suggestion personnelle ni collective : Je pouvais me chausser seul, ce qui ne m’était pas arrivé depuis longtemps, monter et descendre les escaliers comme tout le monde, au lieu de le faire, marche par marche, comme un petit enfant.
Bref, j’étais amélioré de 50 %, et depuis, cette amélioration s’est encore accentuée, si bien que je n’oppose plus aucun scepticisme à mon bienfaiteur, lorsqu’il m’affirme, avec sa foi de savant que, dans un an, je marcherai comme si je n’avais jamais eu d’arthrite de la hanche. Si, ce résultat atteint, j’obtiens en outre la sanction d’une amélioration radiologique, qui donc pourrait contester cette cure au traitement suivi ?
Rota, mon ami, soyez béni d’un de vos premiers cobayes, trop heureux d’avoir, ce soir, l’occasion de vous donner publiquement un témoignage de son infinie gratitude.
Autres témoignages (p36-37)
Dans sa sagesse, le Droit profère cet axiome « Testis unus, testis nullus », et c’est aussi une loi de l’expérimentation scientifique. Aussi, ne me contenterai-je pas de mon unique auto-observation, et me permettrai-je, dussè-je abuser de votre attention, de vous en soumettre quelques autres, également édifiantes, ainsi que vous pourrez en juger:
J’avais un camarade, comme on chante Outre Rhin, ou plutôt j’avais une camarade de misère, Melle N... qui, comme moi, souffrait d’une arthrite de la hanche. Celle-ci remontait à cinq ans, et, au moment où je l’ai examinée et ai prié mon ami Rota de l’examiner à sa façon, cette jeune fille ne pouvait plus marcher et souffrait atrocement, jour et nuit, malgré les efforts de plusieurs médecins qu’elle avait consultés. Nous traitâmes pour elle, a Mont-Saint-Aignan, un lit de cure, et voici, sous la plume de sa mère, au 21 décembre dernier, les -effets de son séjour sur cette couche magique
"Monsieur le Docteur Kresser, je vous suis reconnaissante de vos bons soins et résultat que ma fille a eu après votre traitement. Après cinq mois de repos sur le matelas, elle a eu du mieux, et aujourd’hui, elle marche très bien et bon repos (je respecte le style). . quel soulagement !"
Non moins démonstratif est le cas d’un jeune homme, Pierre L... âgé de 17 ans (probablement Pierre Lemoulle). Ce jeune homme présentait un état de santé fort mauvais, en relation avec une pleurite du sommet gauche. Une petite fièvre continue, des troubles digestifs permanents, un amaigrissement progressif, faisaient redouter l’évolution prochaine d’une germination tuberculeuse du sommet.
Soumis au traitement sur un lit convenablement traité vers le début d’août 1938, ce jeune homme a vu sa santé complètement transformée, et il écrivait le 15 novembre dernier :
"Ma santé progresse constamment. Je puis accomplir des travaux qu’il m’était impossible d’entreprendre auparavant. Je crois que votre méthode est un puissant facteur d’équilibre et de réorganisation."
In its wisdom, the Law utters this axiom "Testis unus, testis nullus", and it is also a law of scientific experimentation. Also, I will not content myself with my unique self-observation, and I will allow myself, even if I misuse your attention, to submit to you a few others, equally edifying, as you can judge:
I had a comrade, as we sing Outre Rhin, or rather I had a comrade in misery, Miss N... who, like me, suffered from arthritis of the hip. This was five years old, and when I examined her and asked my friend Rota to examine her in his own way, this young girl could no longer walk and was in excruciating pain, day and night, in spite of the efforts of several doctors she had consulted. We treated for her, at Mont-Saint-Aignan, a bed of cure, and here, under the pen of her mother, on December 21 last, the effects of her stay on this magic bed
"Dr. Kresser, I am grateful for your good care and the result my daughter had after your treatment. After five months of rest on the mattress, she got better, and today she is walking very well and good rest (I respect the style).. what a relief!”
No less demonstrative is the case of a young man, Pierre L... aged 17 (probably Pierre Lemoulle). This young man presented a very bad state of health, in connection with a pleuritis of the left vertex. A small continuous fever, permanent digestive disorders, a progressive weight loss, made fear the next evolution of a tuberculous germination of the top.
Subjected to treatment on a suitably treated bed around the beginning of August 1938, this young man saw his health completely transformed, and he wrote on November 15 last:
"My health is constantly progressing. I can accomplish work which it was impossible for me to undertake before. I believe that your method is a powerful factor of balance and reorganization."
Even more remarkable is the case of the young L... aged 7 years.
Here is the certificate issued on February 11, 1938, by his attending physician, Dr. L.... who had been following the child for 3 or 4 years:
"I, the undersigned, certify that I have given my care to the child L... Édouard:
1° in 1935 for rheumatic endocarditis;
1° in 1936 for recurrent bronchitis;
3° in 1937 for diphtheria angina and repeated nasopharyngitis, some of which were complicated by asthmatic phenomena;
4° in 1938 for mild nasopharyngitis which was complicated by otitis media. "
This child has always been, since I took care of him, a sickly subject, easily anemic, with a lymphatic constitution, and whose state of health requires continual monitoring. His temperament is obviously ill-suited to the climate of the Paris region. All the pathological accidents that he has presented have indeed occurred when he was staying in Paris or in its immediate surroundings, while his health has always been good from departures or long stays in the provinces. »
This is, you see, the typical observation of the child being unfavorably influenced by the “current of the place”. Shortly after these findings, we submit this child to treatment on a cure bed, and here is what his father wrote to me on May 15, 1938, about three months after the start of this treatment:
"I very much regret not having been able to meet you on your last visit to Paris, because it has been exactly three months since my son has been sleeping on your mattress, and I would have liked to introduce him to you because he is splendid. Yesterday, Dr. L... came to see the child at my wife's request. He was astonished at the condition of the child, saying that it was a real transformation. The W L... is unaware that my son has just spent three months sleeping on your mattress at night; I had preferred not to tell him anything about it, so as not to influence him. My son currently looks splendid, eats like an ogre, he is gay, sleeps admirably and never had an hour of fatigue during this last period. I must also tell you that it was agreed at the beginning of the year, on the advice of a specialist, that we would have him operated on tonsils in the month of June, however, the condition of his throat has improved so much that there is no longer any question of an operation at the present time."
Interesting observation, isn't it? But I still have something to add to it very recently, in the family of this child, which is large, there was an epidemic of influenza, affecting young and old. Alone, his father told me, our little patient walked, immune, jovial and triumphant, between the beds of his decimated family.
I could go on with this enumeration of the successes obtained by our first attempts at application to the therapy of universal currents. I will not do this for the sole fear of becoming tedious. Moreover, the purpose of this conference is above all to reveal to a select audience the discoveries of Mr. Rota and the perspectives they discover in Medicine.
I would like, and Mr. Rota wishes it with me, that they were not received with skepticism, and that they were not rejected a priori because they emanate from a physicist and not from a doctor.
I am old enough to remember that many medical discoveries originated outside the field of medicine. When I was a young student, I saw simple photographers apply the discoveries of Roentgen to medical investigation, and make, under the supervision of hospital surgeons, the first, and how imperfect, X-rays of fractures.
I also saw physicists and chemists collaborating with doctors in the first therapeutic trials of radium which Mr. and Mrs. Pierre Curie had just discovered.
Radiology, radiumlogy, these new sciences were general before taking their place in the medico-surgical arsenal, and it was only later that doctors specialized in order to apply them more particularly to Medicine.
Mr. Rota and I come to the medical public saying:
“Here are new principles, here are facts which demonstrate that they must be taken into consideration and subjected to criticism. Is it a question of coming to the aid of the still imperfect methods of medical diagnosis? We are at your disposal to examine your patients in front of you and to discuss with you the differences that may necessarily be caused by new but easily verifiable theories.
» Are these therapeutic applications? The thing is even easier, because we can put you in a position to judge the effectiveness of this new kind of treatment. We are no longer here in the realm of hypotheses, our means of intervention are concretely realized. Not only can we, in a very few days, make available to your patients the cure beds, the devices, treated at Mont-Saint-Aignan (and you are invited to come on site to see how these devices are treated according to the data of the cosmo-dynamic examination, which will have been made and interpreted in front of you), but we will soon have, near Paris, at Chailly-en-Bière, a region chosen for technical reasons ( elements of the basement there constituting sorts of resonators of currents, suitable for improving patients suffering from common affections), a treatment center where it will be possible for everyone to take note of the observations and to check the sincerity of the results obtained.
Our ambition is to submit the discoveries of Mr. Rota to the free criticism of doctors and to put them in a position to follow and understand his original method of cosmo-dynamic examination, to assimilate it and to learn how to use it. to carry out themselves, to follow and personally direct the treatment of their patients. For it is above all in the practical results of their application to therapy that we intend to seek the demonstration of the reality of these theoretical conceptions.
This is the necessary criterion of any medical discovery, and we know what such a sanction requires time and patience.
How long did it take to see the usefulness and even the necessity of the Jennerian vaccination officially admitted?
And do we not see, even at the present time, despite years of daily application, and thousands of observations, casting doubt, even within the most learned Societies, on the effectiveness and even the safety of Calmette and Guérin's tuberculosis vaccine, or of Ramon's anti-diphtheria toxoid?
We fear nothing, except the a priori rejection of these new ideas, solely because they are new.
We too often see highly educated people imitating this ignoramus to whom they said "Napoleon died on Saint Helena", and who replied: "If it were true, it would be known. - These minds, otherwise very distinguished, sometimes forget that there is more under the cap of the heavens than the human mind can conceive and that, the most learned of modern scholars, placed halfway of the mysteries of the infinitely large and the infinitely small, discerns only a tiny part of the immensity of the Great-All.
How much more clairvoyant are those who, like Jean-Pierre Morat, a pupil of the great Claude Bernard, question themselves, sensing the gaps in our knowledge concerning the intimate relationships between the human organism and the great universal mechanism.
Listen to what this modest but great scientist wrote, almost 40 years ago, in his "Introduction" to the "Traité de Physiologie" published in collaboration with Dognon:
“The century which has just ended has been marked in the field of physico-chemistry by profound discoveries which seem to assure man of the possession of the forces of nature. Biology has had its share. The Living Being has been subjected to an analysis which has given us a more exact knowledge of it, and conferred on it an incontestable power. But the most precious conquest we have made has been to understand that the general laws of the Universe extend into it and are the basis of its existence; that physical determinism governs its phenomena like those of the Cosmos. From then on, we saw ourselves in possession of a general principle, which forms, as it were, the common foundation of the Sciences and which thereby tends to bring them closer together, even to merge them into a harmonious whole.
The dream unit has therefore been interviewed. Has she been reached? Even if we restrict ourselves to the domain of inanimate nature, this is not certain. But if we mean to add to this the living kingdom, that is more than doubtful.
