Chapter One
What is an SE-5?

Walking through the crowded isles of the Future Technology Symposium, the gentle feelings of peace and serene calm surprised me as I passed a crowd of people at one of the booths. As I nuzzled into the crowd to get a closer look, I noticed that everyone was listening intently to a friendly looking man that had a slight look of what I imagine an extra-terrestrial could look like. I can't say that it was anything in particular in how he looked, but more in the eyes. Yes, that's it. It was the look of the future showing through his eyes.

I moved in a little closer until I could hear his words as he was giving his spiel. ``By bringing in the higher vibrational frequencies, they naturally become the stronger pattern of resonance within the body. Healing is a natural outcome as these frequencies are of a higher order and contain, what we would think of as, more life energy.''

My ears picked up considerably when I heard the words, healing and more life energy, as that is just what I needed about now, more life energy. I wouldn't say I was a hypochondriac, but I certainly had my share of problems with my health. After growing up with asthma, severe allergies to about everything, and later developing hypoglycemia, and migraine headaches, I felt like a little more life energy would do me just fine. At the moment I was only running on about two cylinders, and it felt to me like it was all my body could do to get through the day. Healing itself seemed out of the question. I didn't know what all of these vibrational frequencies were that he was talking about, but I assumed it had something to do with the small instrument that was on the table before him. I listened further.

``The key here is balance,'' he continued. ``When we bring the system into balance, there is naturally more energy available for healing and other areas of life. Here's an example. Try hanging your head down as far as it will go. Just let it hang there and relax. Feels good doesn't it?''

I had to admit, I felt better, at least for a while. I soon noticed that my back was beginning to complain. Then he said, ``Now let you head fall backward.'' Again I tried this, but this time it didn't feel good from the beginning. My back was definitely screaming by this time. After letting us stay in that position for an excruciatingly long thirty seconds he said, ``O.K., now see if you find the point in the middle where your head is neither falling forward nor backward, but is in a perfect state of balance.'' His point was well taken, as I instantly felt relieved of the burden of holding my head with my neck muscles.

``Your entire system works on the same principle. Imagine how much better your body would feel if everything was balanced and all of your energy was available for whatever you want in your life. Let me have a volunteer from the group?'' he asked.

By this time what he said was sounding very good to me, so I shot my hand up and he said, ``Come on up here young man.'' At the moment I didn't feel so young, but I moved through the crowd next to him. He said, ``Do you have any health problems, or complaints?'' I didn't know where to start, but somehow I croaked out the words, ``My back.'' It wasn't making me feel any better standing out in front of the crowd as I was always nervous in front of a group, especially when I had to talk. Little by little I began to calm down, and he felt very reassuring.

He then asked me to stand next to a blank screen at the back of the booth while he took my picture. As the picture slid out the front of the camera, he continued talking while the picture was developing. ``By taking a picture of you, the crystals in the film emulsion are `cut' to resonate with your subtle vibrational field. This will act as a tuning device much in the same way as your television has a channel selector.'' He then slipped the picture into a slot on the side of the small computer that he had in front of him. I noticed that he was pushing some buttons and rubbing one hand on the instrument while turning a knob with the other. He said that he would explain the procedures later to anyone that wanted to stay but he mentioned that everything looked good and there weren't any interferences at the moment.

After a few more movements of similar fashion on the instrument, he walked over behind me and asked, ``Does it hurt right here?'' I thought I was going to go through the ceiling as he pushed on the exact spot where the pain was coming from. When I somewhat loudly yelled ``Yes,'' he simply said ``I thought as much,'' and went back over to the instrument and started pushing some buttons again. In a moment he asked me to lean my head back and feel my back. I slowly let my head glide backward and a surprising thing happened. I felt a kind of click and movement in my back, and all of the pain disappeared. `Amazing,' I thought to myself, `I usually only feel this way after seeing a chiropractor.'

After telling him how good my back was feeling, I asked, ``Did your machine do that?''

He replied, ``No, your body did. All I did was send new information to your system and it did the rest. You see, our bodies, as well as all life, come preprogrammed for health and vitality. It has intelligence and knows how to repair itself if there is a problem. As a race, we are learning about separation, and individuality, and therefore have cut ourselves off from most ideas of wholeness. We grow up separating ourselves from everything to find out who we are. Since we are spending most of our time with these thoughts, our bodies begin to respond in like manner. I guess you could say that I reminded your system that it was indeed a system and that it could work together regaining wholeness through the subtle dimensions.''

Most of this was above my head, but I didn't really care at the moment, as I was feeling great. I hadn't felt this good in years. As I was reveling in this feeling of gratitude and joy, I drifted back to consciousness and awoke next to my beloved, who was still sleeping next to me.

I quietly rolled over and searched for my dream journal and penlight in the darkness to write down everything that I could remember from my dream. I was so excited that it had worked. Before falling asleep I had programmed myself to have a lucid dream and learn more about interesting technology. I had heard about Radionics and thougt perhaps this might be what he was talking about.

I wrote furiously as to not miss any of the details of my first meeting with the dream teacher. With my thoughts whirling I staved off the temptation to wake my lover and tell her everything that I had experienced. Finally, the weight of the night enveloped me once again as I drifted back to the fair.

I found myself once again standing at the booth and the presenter seemed to sense both my elation and my dumbfoundedness.

He said, ``Let's begin at the very beginning and then straighten out any confusion that this may create for you.'' He continued, ``The letters SE-5 stand for Subtle Energy -- 5th model. The SE-5 is the fifth model of a digital device that allows you to measure and balance subtle energy fields. You might think of it as a computer that you can use to detect whether or not something is emitting a life field, and then send out information to help restore the balance of these subtle fields. Sounds a little like Greek doesn't it?'' I nodded. ``Well, let's look at it step-by-step,'' he replied.

He turned slightly to the right and pointed what looked to me like a kind of remote control for a TV into the air. Then, before the whole crowd, words appeared before us floating in a ghostly three dimensional hologram. It said,

What is a Subtle Energy Field

``In the beginning we thought that these subtle fields were a form of energy, hence the name Subtle Energy Field. We have since determined that we are not working with energy at all. It would be better described as a pure field of information that is emitted from all creations in nature and all parts of those creations, down to the very atoms that make up everything.

We will discuss this in detail later, but as we all know, nothing is really solid even though it feels that way to our touch. Way down inside are the tiny atoms moving at incredible speeds inside of everything that we know of. But how does an atom know how to move the electrons in such numbers and ways to produce specific elements and build molecules of distinct shape and purpose? We have called the blueprints that govern this creative process, Intrinsic Data Fields. (IDFs)

As it turns out, everything is designed from these blueprints and normally they are found encoded in, or riding on some form of energy like light, electromagnetics, atomic, etc. Since they are usually associated with an energy field, it was only natural in the beginning to think that they were energy. Some people have called these fields, Life fields or L-fields for short because they seem to appear in all forms of life, animate and inanimate.''

He continued, ``There have been many names for these fields, but we refer to them as Intrinsic Data Fields or sometimes Subtle Information Fields. They are so subtle that experiments can be affected by thought. This is one reason that it is sometimes difficult to get 100% repeatable experiments with subtle fields, Radionics or any other type of experiment. The very thoughts of the people involved can affect the experiment! Even the establishment scientists are beginning to recognize this in experiments with atomic and sub-atomic particles. Scientists are beginning to think that they have a personality, because they sometimes misbehave,'' he mused.

I chuckled under my breath as I thought about atoms talking to one another, planning tricks to play on the scientist.

``Are we saying that every living thing in the universe is emitting these subtle fields of information?'' Not waiting for an answer he replied, ``Yes. Not only that, but every `non-living' object, such as a stone or metal, is emitting a subtle field of information. In a sense everything in our universe is alive as everything is made up of spinning atoms that are built from these informational blueprints (IDFs). Let's look at a plant for example.'' He pressed a button on his remote control and floating before us was a leaf with lights pouring out around the edges. (See fig. 1.1)

With a special photographic process called Kirlian Photography, one can take a photo of, let's say, a leaf, and all around the edges of the leaf you can see a brilliant glow of light.''

He continued, ``This corona or `aura' of the leaf is the subtle field blueprint of this leaf. This blueprint remains for some time even after taking away a part of the leaf.'' (see 1.2)

``It is really the pre-physical shape of the leaf that is similar to an architect's blueprint that, in the architect's mind, is very real and he/she knows exactly how the building will manifest and take form. Of course, Nature's architects don't have home owners that change their mind half way through the process,'' he laughed, ``most of the time Nature turns out objects of perfection.''

I was beginning to enjoy myself as the information flowed into my mind effortlessly.

He continued, “The SE-5 1000 can be used to measure the strength and clarity of this information field of life. Now let’s take for an example, the heart of a dog. It would make sense, that if the subtle information field of the heart was strong, then the heart would be able to create and maintain itself in a healthy manner. It would be full of vitality and energy which is normal by Nature’s design.

“Likewise, if the heart was to have a very weak subtle information field around it, it may not be so healthy. One would need to go to a licensed veterinarian to be sure, or in the case of a human, a recognized medical authority like a licensed medical doctor. This way both your rational mind is content, and you don’t disrupt the power struggles of the medical system,” he said with a glint in his eye.

“Here is another way of looking at it. If you were to do a Radionic analysis of a fruit tree, and you found a high subtle information reading of a bacteria, does this mean that this tree has a bacteria in it? Since we are not physically looking through a microscope we are not able to see whether or not there is a bacteria in this tree, but we have found some very interesting correlations. It appears that when we find a low IDF reading of bacteria, that little or no physical element is found. Occasionally, it has been observed that even when there is a high reading found, physically there would be no bacteria found. We have termed these readings as Miasms, which would be described as a blueprint in which the ‘building project’ has not progressed to the physical level.


“It seems as though everything in the Universe has its own individual resonant information that it emits, as individual and readable as your fingerprint. So it would make sense that there is a bacteria present that is emitting that field. The only way to know for sure, is to take a portion of the tree and look at it under a microscope. After making this comparison you may soon learn to trust that when certain IDF readings are found, there is also a physical correlation.

“There is one person that uses his SE-5 1000 to analyze the content of the precious metals that he receives for making jewelry. This is very precise measuring, but he has found that it is extremely reliable to measure the information field to know the physical metal’s content.”

I could tell he was warming to his subject, as his eyes were glowing with excitement.

He charged ahead. “The amazing part of the SE-5 1000 is that it can not only detect and measure the strength of these subtle fields, but it can also send information to try and balance the IDFs as well. How is this possible? This is actually a natural phenomenon, using predictable laws and principles. “We can begin by using the metaphor of a TV broadcasting station. Most TV stations are capable of not only transmitting information, like Saturday Night Live, but also of receiving a show from a satellite or microwave tower. Our bodies seem to work in a similar fashion, but at a much higher level of efficiency. We transmit and receive information all of the time through our five senses as well as our sixth sense, all at the same time.

“How many times has it happened to you that you were doing some task like washing the dishes or cleaning up the house, thinking of someone and perhaps keeping an eye on the kids, and maybe even watching TV all at the same time?” he asked and took a deep breath. “Then the phone rings and it is the person you were just thinking of? The human system is capable of doing many things simultaneously.

“The SE-5 1000 is really a fine-tuning and amplifying system to bring into conscious awareness some of the things that you may already be doing. With the help of the SE-5 1000, we are able to tune in, very precisely, to any energy emanation in the universe no matter what the distance is!

“I have a friend who was on vacation and had rented a car. He had locked the keys in the car and walked to a hotel to call a locksmith. The locksmith told my friend to wait right there and he would come and get him. By the time he drove by to pick up my friend and take him to the car, the car had vanished. The locksmith felt very bad for my friend and offered to give him a lift back to his hotel. After calling the police and getting no hope of results there, he sat and brooded over his fate for a couple of hours. He thought back and realized he had heard about someone finding lost people with Radionics.

“Then he remembered that he had his SE-5 1000 with him and decided to give it a go. He figured that if the car was emanating subtle information fields, perhaps he could trace it down. He got out a map of the area and using the map scanning technique, he found the location of the emanations. He called a cab and had the driver take him to the location that he had found on the map. It turned out to be a construction project of a high rise building and sure enough, the car was sitting right there in the parking lot! He called the police and they contacted the rental company for a new key. He was up and running again, but this could have gone very differently,” he said and then paused for a quick drink of water.

I looked around at the crowd and noticed that several people had caught the impact of this story. Others had a slight look of disbelief on their face. I was feeling caught in the middle, perhaps a little detached. My interest was certainly there, but I was not yet a true believer. But my back was feeling much better...

“So by now this SE-5 1000 must sound to you like a combination of a Star Trek Tri-Corder and the little glowing cylinder that ‘Bones’ uses to ‘look’ inside of his patients. I must admit that sometimes it feels like even Star Trek is a little outdated. The SE-5 1000 can be used for even more exotic projects. It has many applications for business, agriculture, mining, and health, with many new areas being developed every day.”

Then he asked if there were any questions so far. The woman next to me seemed a bit impatient and asked, “This is very interesting, but can you tell us what all these buttons are for?” as she pointed to the instrument on the table. I didn’t mind, as my curiosity was also becoming aroused.

“OK,” he said, “let’s have a look at the instrument itself and the purpose of each of its functions.” He clicked his remote control once again and hovering in front of us was a holographic image of the SE-5 1000 with little numbers and letters pointing to different part of the instrument. (see Fig. 1.3)

The SE-5 1000:

1. ON-OFF SWITCH — Turns the SE-5 1000 power ON and OFF.

2. 100-1000-10,000 SWITCH — Selects range of amplitude measurement, either 0-100 or 0-1000 or 0-10,000.

3. NORMAL-SCAN SWITCH — Selects alternate mode for scanning. NORMAL position allows the AMPLITUDE READOUT to be used for amplitude readings. SCAN allows scanning of new tunings and use of Scanning Probe.

4. MEASURE-BALANCE SWITCH — Selects measuring or balancing mode. MEASURE is used for measuring IDFs. BALANCE is used for IDF patterning experiments.

5. AMPLITUDE READOUT — Shows amplitude strength as set by the AMPLITUDE KNOB. When the 9-volt battery is low, an “LB,” appears at the left of the AMPLITUDE READOUT.

6. CELL (on back) — Holds a sample to he analyzed. The Input Plate and Input Probe also insert into this CELL.

7. AMPLITUDE KNOB — Rotates to set amplitude as shown on the AMPLITUDE READOUT.

8. DETECTOR PLATE — The sensor used to determine amplitude readings. Also used for replicating or duplicating IDFs to a material placed on this PLATE.

9. USB CONNECTOR (on back side) — Connects the SE-5 to a PC for use with SE-5 1000 Software.

10. AC ADAPTER JACK (on back) — Accepts plug from AC power adapter that connects to the AC power line. The AC adapter supplements the 9-volt battery. Using the AC adapter prolongs battery life.

11. BATTERY COMPARTMENT (on right side) — Holds the 9- volt alkaline battery that powers the SE-5 1000. When an “L” appears on the AMPLITUDE READOUT, replace the SE-5 1000 battery within the next four hours of use. Keep a good battery installed at all times.

18. BATTERY COMPARTMENT TAB — Press to open the Battery Compartment to change the battery.

I felt deeply satisfied as I awoke and began writing down my adventure. The day continued on its normal course, and I tried to keep busy to make it go by faster. My mind was pulling toward the evening, when I could return, once again, to the symposium.
