7HRU THE centuries, man, in his ignorance
and weakness before the many problems that
confronted him in life, tried to find a
means by which an answer could be given to
his queries -- either thru the knowledge of
another man or by some mysterious device.
In the first case we have the ancient Sibyls
and the Oracles for the prediction of future

For the finding of lost objects, hidden
treasures, underground water systems, ores,
etc., there were known to the ancient peoples
of the world other simpler means for this task ,
the most popular of which was the divining rod.
It is well known to many the excellent results
that an expert dowser or diviner can bring
with his divining rod. This is a fork-shaped
branch of a certain tree held by both hands
while the part of the branch where the two
stems join points to the sky.

From history we know that the ancient Chinese, as far back as the reign of Emperor Y u
in 2,200 B.C., used this method which was also
in use by the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Persians, the Polynesians, and others.

Due to the modern mental and scientific development of man, a more accurate instrument
with a wider scope was needed. The pendulum
was the result of this urgent quest of the
human mind.

There are many types of pendulums in use
today. It seems that each school of radiesthesia
favors a certain type. Pendulums are made of
wood, glass, ebony, ivory, amber, gold, plastic. The pendulum in the hands of a trained
operator may be used successfully in the search
for underground water streams, ore deposits,
mines, oil, gas, hidden or lost articles, how
to select seeds and plants, food, drinks,
books, and so forth. Im medicine, a trained
physician in this subtle art, with the proper
pendulum in his hand, may diagnose disease,
the organs affected, the cause of disease, and
prescribe the needed treatment and remedy to
be applied in all branches of the art of healing. It is stated, which may seem unbelievable
but it is true, that such a physician may even
diagnose a case in a patient who is thousands
of miles away, and prescribe the proper remedy
to be taken .

This rediscovered science and art in Europe
was first called " Radiesthesia" by Abbe' Bouly ,
the French priest, by which name it is known

Some of the most prominent physicians and
scientists in Europe are using radiesthesia
successfully in their profession. In France
alone, there are more than 2,500 physicians
today using radiesthesia.

The scientific explanation of how the pendulum works in performing so many tasks lies
in the basic cosmic law of vibration. Everything vibrates in the universe. Ether which
permeates all in nature makes this invisible
interdependence and intercommunication of all
things and beings possible. By holding the
pendulum, which serves as the antenna, the etheric vibrations of the object under examination reach and enter the body of the pendulist
thru the neves of his hand and along the ulnar
nerve they reach the brain.

In this way the subconscious mind of the
operator comes in vibratory etheric contact
with the object under examination, and by following the rules set in radiesthesia, the correct answer is given to the pendulist thru certain movements of the pendulum and the use of
special charts, diagrams, and samples.

To err is human; to cite them is wifely.

S THE time was fast approaching when I would
reach the state of young manhood, I thought
it expedient to decide upon an occupation
that I might begin my apprenticeship and
so assure success for the future. To this
end, I set about wandering in the Corridors of History, for it was my intention and
the desire of my heart to help my fellow man.

My first encounter was with a man stretched
out upon a wheel. Beads of sweat rolled like
pearls from his forehead and it was readily
apparent that the wheel was somewhat too big
for him.
"My friend," I asked, "how is it that you
are stretched out upon this wheel?"
He answered thus: "One day as I was hunting
in the hills beyond, I chanced to see a large
boulder, loosened by the wind and storm, roll
down a steep decline. It came to rest against
the trunk of a sturdy tree. The thought was
born in my mind that this device might be made
into a tool which would save the Carriers of
Loads much striving with their burdens."
"And what was your occupation?" I inquired.
"Were you a Maker of Wheels?"
"No," he said, after careful consideration.
"I thought that occupation best which best
served my fellow man." He gave a little sigh
and fell silent.

My next encounter was with a man surrounded
by a few who wept. In his hand he held a cup
from which he was about to drink. Those who
wept did not hear me, so I inquired of the man
who held the cup what occupation he had followed in life.

He replied : "I was a teacher. I thought
that occupation best which best served my fellow man."
"Who are these few who weep?" I asked.
"My followers -- and friends."
"What is in the cup you hold?"
"Hemlock," he said, and raising the cup to
his lips, he drank deeply.

I went on my way , but for a long time the
echoes of weeping followed after me. In a later
time, I came upon a young maiden sitting atop a
mound of straw and fagots from which a slight
feather of smoke had begun to curl. Those near
her did not seem to be her friends.
"What was your occupation, Maiden?" I asked.
"I was both visionary and leader," she answered. "I did those things which I thought
would most benefit my fellow man."
The smoke from the lighted fagots billowed
up, obscuring her from my view and I departed.

Presently, I came upon a barren hilltop,
where three men were fastened upon stakes of
wood -- but I will leave you to make your own
journey thru the Corridors of History. As for
me, it has already been revealed -- helping one's
fellow man is a Very Dangerous Occupation.
