There are now four types of Rife frequency instruments. The original type used an X - ray tube that had been back filled with helium and or argon gas at low pressure. This ray tube was used to emit high frequency high intensity light pulses. The tube also produced direct ultrasound in the room air from the vibration of the tube walls do to plasma shock waves generated inside the tube. Furthermore, this tube produced multipole oscillating electric fields which caused ions in the patients body to oscillate back and forth generating low intensity ultrasound. The second type uses electrode contact with the skin to induce a sonic transducer action in the dead skin layer, induce charge density waves in the body's electrolytic solution, and produce very low intensity pressure square waves due to constant drift velocity collisions of the body's salt ions under the influence of the square wave voltage used. The charge density waves couple with the dipole layer of charge on the cell membranes to produce broad band ultrasound. This second type of Rife frequency instrument was popularized by John Crane and will be discussed in APPENDIX C. The third type uses gas filled tubes at low pressure as contact electrodes to the body. These gas discharge tubes are supplied with oscillating high voltages, which produce strong charge density waves in the body salt solution, high intensity sonic pings in both the tube wall and the dead skin layer, and low intensity pressure waves in body fluids do to ion current flow collisions with other molecules. All of these effects cause the generation of low intensity broad band ultrasound among other things. The fourth type uses a piezoelectric transducer element which converts voltage wave forms applied to the transducer into mechanical oscillations that, like the other types of Rife frequency instruments, destroy the microbe when the produced mechanical oscillation frequency matches the microbe's lethal mechanical oscillation frequency.

Apparently on a hunch Dr. Royal Raymond Rife came up with the idea of an audio to radio frequency intensity modulated gas discharge source for destroying microbes. He called this device a frequency instrument. It apparently consisted of two oscillators. One a precision controlled sine or square wave oscillator which supplied the driving voltage and current to a gas filled tube. The tube was a X-ray tube which had been back filled with helium and or argon gas to a low pressure. The second oscillator was of a lower frequency and was probably a square wave oscillator used to turn on and off (modulate) the higher frequency being supplied to the X - ray tube. This X - ray tube had a hot tungsten cathode which gave the tube some diode characteristics. That is a preference for current flow in only one direction. However, do to the high operating voltages used at low gas pressure along with the ample ion / electron generation from ultraviolet light emissions from metastable inert gases used, the tube gas was quite electrically conductive in both directions. Figure 1 shows a qualitative diagram of the frequency instrument.

Figure 2 shows a amplitude modulated sine wave voltage being chosen for the driving voltage for the tube. Figure 3 shows the magnitude of electron current flow through the "diode" generated by the voltage signal from the oscillator. The current flows in both directions, but there is a preferred direction do to the ability of the hot cathode to easily supply electrons when it is negatively charged relative to the plate (anode). Note that the current flow is not proportional to the voltage. This is for two reasons. First, the electron emission from the hot cathode is not a linear function of plate-cathode potential difference ( voltage ). Figure 4 illustrates how electron emission current depends on plate voltage and filament temperature. Secondly, the electrons gain kinetic energy on the way to the anode and if the tube driving voltage is high enough ( and it is ) the electrons gain enough energy to be able to ionize one or more helium / argon atoms during collisions with them while transiting the ray tube. These freed electrons join in the current flow across the tube and also make collisions freeing more electrons. The light emission rate from the tube which determines the light intensity is proportional to electron collision rate with helium / argon atoms. The electron collision rate with helium / argon atoms at a constant tube voltage is approximately proportional to the electron current. Therefore we should expect the light output intensity of the ray tube to have the same shape as the electron current magnitude of Figure 3. Also, note that the X - ray tube wall was of fussed quartz and therefore passed ultraviolet, visible, and upper end IR "light".

Rife discovered that when he would observe a microbe ( be it a bacteria, rickettsia, virus or protozoa ) under his microscope while exposing that particular microbe to a particular discharge pulse rate from the frequency instrument the microbe would be deactivated. He found that all microbes had their own specific discharge pulse rate ( frequency ) which deactivated them. Rife called these their mortal oscillation rate (MOR). Remember, the tube is also producing direct ultrasound into the air that has the same main frequency as the flashing light rate. Note that there are two light pulses per single complete voltage oscillation cycle. In other words there is a frequency doubling effect here. Rife suspected that some sort of mechanical resonance phenomena in the microbe's structure was at work in this deactivation process. However, he apparently did not have any specifics about what the process was. Depending on the output light intensity and the direct tube wall ultrasound output of the frequency instrument when operated at the MOR for a particular microbe, the microbe's reaction could vary from just loosing its characteristic florescent or luminescent color (as seen in the field of view of the Rife microscope ) to the microbe violently exploding. Rife found that when test animals which were infected with a disease causing microbe were treated by the frequency instrument operated at the MOR of that microbe, the test animals were cured.

Under the auspices of the Special Medical Research Committee of the U.S.C. Medical School, clinical trails on sixteen terminally ill cancer patients using the frequency instrument were conducted in 1934. Rife, in the mid 1920's , had isolated from and associated with cancer tumor tissue, two types of motile virus particles. In 1932 Rife was able to make these isolated virus particles carcinogenic by exposing them to 24 hours of UV exposure from a high voltage argon gas discharge. These exposed viruses were 100 % carcinogenic when injected into test animals. The two forms ( BX and BY ) he proved caused at least 95 % of the cancers at that time. Sixteen out of sixteen terminally ill cancer patients were cured of cancer in those trials. It should also be mentioned that while Rife treated them for cancer, he also cured many other disease conditions these patients had.

In Appendix D (on Articles page), the details of how and why specific frequencies of very low intensity ultrasound can destroy viruses and bacteria are derived and discussed using standard physics. Here we wish to know the approximate intensity of ultrasound necessary to kill the cancer virus as was done by the Rife frequency instrument used in the U.S.C 1934 clinical trials. We should anticipate three significant physical processes being involved in generating ultrasound in the patients. One, pressure waves being generated in the patient from exposure to oscillating light intensity from the X - ray tube. Two, direct generation of ultrasound from the X - ray tube walls vibrating from their interaction with plasma shock waves generated by tube electric current flows and electric fields from oscillating charge density distributions. Third, oscillating forces on the ions in the salt solution of the patient's body from the oscillating electric fields of the discharge tube ( X - ray tube ). These oscillating ions insidee the patient produce pressure waves (ultrasound).

The intensity ( Watts / Meter squared ) of an acoustic sinusoidal wave when expressed in terms of pressure is frequency independent and is given by:

I = ( P )2 / ( 2D V ) ; where I is intensity in watts / meter squared , P is the maximum pressure in Newton / meter squared , D is the density of the medium in kilograms / meter cubed , and V is the velocity of sound in meters / second in the medium. P will now be calculated approximately and along with approximate assumed values for D and V, I will be given to within two orders of magnitude. With perhaps two orders of magnitude of slop, this may seem like a non-useful result. However, we shall find that the results have some profound implications. Figure 6 shows a frequency instrument being used on a cancer patient. Assume the light leaves the ray tube uniformly in all directions. Then the light intensity on the patient's abdomen directly below the tube as illustrated in Figure 6b is equal to the total light out put in watts divided by the surface area of a sphere which has a radius equal to the shortest distance between the center of the ray tube and the patients skin surface. We will assume 40 % efficiency in conversion of electric power to light, this includes UV, visible, and IR in the ray tube. The quartz wall of the X - ray tube passed UV, visible and much IR light through it. The tubes used in the clinical trials dissipated around 80 watts. Therefore, we assume approximately 32 watts of radiant light energy is emitted. Now looking back at Figure 3 we see that the light is emitted in pulses which to a first approximation can be approximated as of a sine wave pattern. The 32 watt light output power is the root mean square ( RMS ) value of the output power in the form of light. For a sine wave the relationship between the peak power output and the root mean square value is :

W ( peak value ) = ( 2) W ( RMS value ). Light carries momentum and when light is absorbed by the skin, that momentum must be conserved.

It is conserved by being converted into the longitudinal wave momentum of the pressure pulse that travels into the body. The peak amplitude of that pressure pulse associated with each light pulse is:

P = ( Pointing's vector ) /( speed of light ) = S / C ; where S is the magnitude of

Pointing's vector and C is the speed of light. S = ( (2) W( RMS value ) ) / ( Surface area of sphere )

S = the instantaneous energy per time crossing unit area.

P ( peak value ) = ( (2) (32 watts)/(4 )(.3 meters)2 ) / ( 3 x 10 8 meters/second )

P ( peak value ) = 1.88 x 10 -7 Newton/meter squared

The outer surface of the skin is made up of a dead skin cell layer. These cells have approximately 10% water content and the rest is essentially protein. I know of no density or speed of sound measurements for this dead skin material. I will now assume a density of .8x10 3 kilograms/meter cubed ( 80% of that of water ) and a speed of sound of

50 meters / second ( similar to vulcanized rubber ). Using these values for

P ( peak value ), D ,and V we obtain:

I = ( 1.88 x 10 -7 n/m ) 2 / ( (2)(.8x10 3 kgm/m3 )( 50 m/s ) ) = 4.4 x 10 -16 w/m2

It should be noted that in this approximation calculation, the fact that significant radiant "light" passes through the dead skin layer and is absorbed in the living tissue is ignored. Proper consideration of this fact does not significantly change the results for the value of I calculated.

If the above calculated value of ultrasound intensity is responsible for a significant amount of the observed microbe kill off with a Rife frequency instrument, then there are two important points to be made and realized at this time. First, even if our approximation calculation for I were off by two orders of magnitude, it is clear that what is normally thought of as a totally harmless and insignificant ultrasound intensity can have profound effects on microbes. We can make this statement because Rife and medical doctors which used his frequency instrument cured thousands of patients of microbe/virus caused diseases using power levels in the ray tube we used for calculation purposes above. The second point to be made is that the microbes and viruses have high Q-values when considered as mechanical resonators. Where 2E /Q is the approximate total vibration energy released or dissipated by a vibrating system per complete oscillation cycle of the system. E is the total energy stored in the oscillator ( potential plus kinetic energy). This Q-value as used above is understood for a simple oscillating system, such as a mass attached to a spring while going back and forth (oscillating ) on a frictional surface. However, in our virus system it becomes a little more tricky to use, because there are so many vibration modes that can be simultaneously in existence. For example when you pick up one of the virus models you have constructed from the material you have been supplied in APPENDIX D, keep your finger on one of the spherical protein clumps. Now count to see how many different closed "rings" of protein clumps this one protein clump belongs to. Note that for each separate closed ring this protein clump has three independent degrees of vibration associated with each resonant frequency mode for each closed ring. These three independent degrees of vibration consist of two transverse vibrations at right angles to each other and one longitudinal The physical displacement of one transverse vibration occurs approximately in the local tangent plane to the surface in which the clump is located and at right angle to the Ring's local curvature. The other transverse vibration has its displacement occur at right angles to the first and occurs in the approximate direction of above and below the local tangent plane to the virus's surface. The longitudinal vibrational displacement occurs back and forth along and parallel with the local direction of the closed ring of clumped proteins. Once you realize that all of these vibration modes are allowed to coexist together on the outer coat of the virus, you see that the coat is a sitting duck, just waiting to absorb resonant vibration energy up to the point where it comes apart by rupture of the weak bonding between adjacent protein clumps.

Now, let us consider the ultrasound intensity generated in the air by the mechanical oscillations of the wall of the X - ray tube. From the operation of current gas filled tubes which are similar to Rife's tube, with similar electrode design, gas mixtures, pressures and power dissipation, it is experimentally known that such tubes when operated at auditory frequencies make an audible sound. This sound occurs whether the tube is ran at mega hertz frequencies with audio frequency amplitude modulation or simply by a audio frequency sine wave voltage. The sound is not very loud but is clearly audible as long as the back ground sound is not to loud. The average human ear can just detect (hear) a tone of ~ 1,000 cycles per second in a very quite background, at around an intensity level of 10 - 12 W / m 2. I believe that it is safe to assume ultrasound intensities of around 10 - 10 W / m2 for these Rife type tubes. As stated above the intensity of an acoustic sinusoidal wave when expressed in terms of pressure is frequency independent and is given by:

I = ( P ) 2 / ( 2DV); solving for P we have: P = ( 2DVI ) 1/2; if we now place into this

equation the values of I = 10 -10 W/m2, V = 333 m/S (speed of sound in air), and D = 1.22 kg/m3 ( air density ), we obtain P = 2.9 x 10 - 4 n/m2. This would be the approximate sinusoidal air pressure variation experienced on the skin surface by a patient located only a few inches from a Rife type tube making the auditory sound mentioned above. Now the important question to ask is: What is the intensity of the sound that travels into the patient's body generated by the sinusoidal air pressure variation experienced on the skin? The answer is by using our formula for intensity again and subtituting in:

P = 2.9 x 10 - 4 n/m; because the wave pressure is approximately conserved, D ~ .8 x10 3 Kgm/ m3 (dead skin layer), V ~ 50 m/S , (assumed velocity of sound in dead skin layer), we obtain:

I = 1.05 x 10 - 12 W/m2

Even, if I am off ( to optimistic ), and I probably am by a couple or so orders of magnitude for the intensity of mega hertz ultrasound actually generated by the tube wall, it is clear again that ultrasound intensities that are normally thought to be totally harmless and insignificant can have profound effects on microbes.

What about the affects of oscillating electric fields from the tube generating ultrasound in the patient. Well from the positive results from the use of such devices as the Lakhovsky Multiple Wave Oscillator, it is clear that we can expect similar results from a Rife frequency instrument when in close proximity to it.

Figure 7a shows a closed ring of protein clumps such as are found in the outer capsid coat of a virus. Figure 7b shows the mathematical abstraction of Figure 7a. Each protein clump has a mass m, and they have a distance a between their centers of mass. The elastic connecting force is provided by the self elasticity of the protein clumps, which are weakly bound together mainly with hydrogen bonds. A tension in the closed ring of protein clumps is maintained by osmotic pressure and, by hydrophilic and hydrophobic interactions between the outer virus coat and water and other chemical compounds in the environment ( see APPENDIX D on Articles page for details. The magnitude of this tension in conjunction with the mass of the protein clump determines the fundamental natural mechanical oscillation frequency for the ring.

Document 1 is a copy of the actual lab note book used by Rife in his lab on 11/20/32 when he found the MOR to kill the BX-cancer virus, which was the main cause of carcinoma type cancer in Rife's time. Another form of the BX virus which Rife named the BY cancer virus causes sarcoma type cancer. Both BX and BY cancer viruses are possibly destroyed by the same MOR, but this must be verified experimentally. Note that: 1) The size and shape of the BX cancer virus is that of an ovoid 1/15 microns = 750 Angstroms in length and 1/20 microns = 500 Angstroms in width., 2) The virus is motile ( it has a proton transport driven flagella the same as its bacterial parent uses ), 3) The virus has a Florescence and or luminescent color of purple-red, 4) The MOR is 11,780,000 cycles per second. Note that due to the above stated frequency doubling effect, that the ultrasound frequency of 23,560,000 cycles per second may be the (MOR).

WARNING, ultra sound of 11,780,000 cycles per second should not be used to treat cancer patients unless the required relationship between ultra sound intensity and treatment time for successful treatment is understood ( see Appendix C for detail calculations).. From the above approximate calculations Rife probably used ultra sound intensity of around (10 - 14 w/m2 to 10 - 16 w/m2) for three minutes once every three days. Usually the patient would be free of all tumors in seventy to ninety days. What Rife did was to kill off only the surface layer of the tumor and then allowed the body's immune system to remove the dead tissue before killing the next layer. All "normal" cancer cells in Rife's time were teeming with either the BX or BY cancer virus. These cancer viruses are highly absorptive of ultrasound at their resonance frequencies. Ultrasound at the resonance frequencies is highly absorbed and exponentially attenuated as it enters a tumor mass. As cancer viruses in the outer regions ( surface ) absorb critical resonant vibratory energy they rupture and no longer effectively absorb resonant ultrasound. The ultrasound effectively penetrates deeper and deeper into the tumor mass. If the normal ultrasound intensity of around ( 2X 10 4 w/m2) used for physical therapy in sports injuries is used, all tumors will be mortally wounded within a few seconds. However, unless serious medical intervention is taken the patient will quit possibly die in seven to ten days from a combination of kidney failure, liver failure, and toxemia from the abscess/abscesses formed from the dead tumor mass becoming a bacterial feeding ground.

It now seems that bacteria have locations on their cell membrane / cell wall where they have protein clump type structures similar to viruses in that they form closed periodically spaced structures. There is enough of the virus coat type pattern so that there exists at least one closed ring of protein clumps. And of course this ring can be ruptured by the same mechanisms as the virus form. When the bacteria's virus like clumped protein structure is ruptured by the exposure to the acoustic resonance frequency, the osmotic pressure of the bacteria is relieved by the contents of the bacteria exiting out the rupture site which is enlarging as the elastic energy of the stretched bacteria cell wall is relieved. Also, the cell membrane potential difference will collapse. The bacteria will die.

It should be noted that the U.S.C. Medical School Special Medical Research Committee that oversaw the 1934, 1935, and 1937 test trial clinics, which were totally successful in proving Dr. Rife's cancer cure as well as the cure of many other diseases never released a report. This committee was made up of some of the most prominent men in medicine of their time. It is as though the committee never existed, but they did exist and they did not act honorably. How many millions of people have died horrible deaths from cancer and other diseases that Rife had found the cure for? How much money has the medical industry made on their deaths since the time of the last meeting of the U.S.C. Medical School Special Medical Research Committee?

For those people who believe that no medical establishment could be so lacking of integrity, so lacking of compassion, so dishonor their Hippocratic oath, I suggest you reflect on the Tuskegee, ALB. syphilis experiments carried out on black men for over a forty year period by our medical establishment, long after there was a cure. In fairness, I should say that I do not believe all the members of the Special Medical Research Committee and other doctors that were well informed about the success of the clinical trials were bad or evil men. I believe that then, as now, a great majority of people lack the integrity and courage to buck the system or powers that be.

a paper by physicist Gary Wade 1/12/93


P.S. - Two other much more expanded clinical trials of Dr. Rife's work were carried out by the U.S.C. Special Medical Research Committee in 1935 and 1937. These clinical trials verified that Dr. Rife had found the cure for fifty two major diseases. If any institution ever owed the people of the world a profound apology for its historical corruption, past lack of integrity, past lack of honor, and past lack of common decency, it is the U.S.C. School of Medicine. Please feel free to notify the U.S.C. School of Medicine that it is time for them to reclaim their lost honor by doing the right thing. That is a prompt, non B.S. program to test out the Rife technology presented in my various Appendixes. HEY, U.S.C. form an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to verify Rife technology and quit just training doctors to be licensed pharmaceutical drug pushers and HMO grunts.
