A few weeks ago I blogged about a story that fascinates me, that of Elizabeth Holmes and her one-time rocking-and-rolling multi-billion-dollar Silicon Valley start-up biotech company, Theranos. Her company managed to get several big names on her board before her fall from "grace" and indictment for various types of fraudulent activity. The names included George Schultz, General Mattis, and Riley Bechtel, among many others. So how did someone like Elizabeth Holmes - allegedly a charlatan - manage to con some of the biggest names in the country?

That is, indeed, the question. And thus far, I'm not buying the public narrative, particularly when one compares what Holmes claimed to be up to, and some recent papers. What Holmes wanted to do was to place a unit no bigger than a desktop computer into every home, and into retail outlets, to do on the spot blood analysis able to test for the widest possible panel of diseases, say from blood cholesterol measurements to leukemia and so on, and all this from a very small sample of blood, a couple of drops, and not the endless syringes used now.  As I noted in a recent blog (see https://gizadeathstar.com/2019/09/update-that-strange-theranos-story-and-its-optical-patents/), my curiosity was piqued by this claim, for it meant that to be successful, Holmes would have to have in mind a whole new electromagnetic or optical means of spectroscopy to pull off this feat. The device which she claimed to be developing to do this was called the "Edison", and though Theranos took out a number of intriguing patents, what was inside it was described in vague and general terms, remaining essentially a "black box." Ultimately, she could not deliver on her idea, and the rest is history.

But as I noted in the previous blog on this subject linked above, the idea itself was probably responsible for attracting the likes of the Bechtel corporation (Riley Bechtel and George Schultz), and the U.S. military (General Mattis). Imagine, for a moment, being able to do quick and accurate triage on the battlefield using the device, and obviously, the whole concept of a new kind of optical spectroscopy for blood paneling also implied more sinister uses. As I noted in that previous blog, a recent paper in optics had discovered a new kind of light wave that emerges when light is traveling from a crystal to a liquid, and emerges in the boundary transition between the two mediums. Interestingly enough, one of the patents Theranos took out involved the use of a prism in its Edison device.

Well, there may me more to this story, because one of this site's regular readers, T.M., spotted this very intriguing paper:


Notably, this paper appeared in 2009, approximately five years after Holmes founded Theranos. What the abstract says is quite intriguing for our purposes:

Elastic optical scattering, the dominant light interaction process in biological tissues, prevents tissues from being transparent. While scattering may appear stochastic, it is in fact deterministic in nature. We show that, despite experimental imperfections, optical phase conjugation (λ = 532 nm) can force a transmitted light field to retrace its trajectory through a biological target and recover the original light field. For a 0.69 mm thick chicken breast tissue section, we can enhance point source light return by ∼5×103 times and achieve a light transmission enhancement factor of 3.8 within a collection angle of 29°. Additionally, we find that the reconstruction's quality, measured by the width of the reconstructed point source, is independent of tissue thickness (up to 0.69 mm thick). This phenomenon may be used to enhance light transmission through tissue, enable measurement of small tissue movements, and form the basis of new tissue imaging techniques. (Emphasis added)

In other words, as cells move the movement itself distorts the light they emit, but this original signature may be recovered through the phenomenon of phase conjugation. The latter bears a little explanation. Phase conjugation emerged as a major phenomenon of interest from the super-secret work being done in the 1980s during the Reagan administration's Strategic Defense Initiative or "Star Wars" program, and as we shall see in a moment, emerged in quite a different context in the secret Soviet biophysics research of the 1960s and 1970s. Simply put, as a light wave moves through a medium such as the atmosphere, it undergoes scattering that distorts the original "shape" it had when emitted from its source. Thus, pointing a laser at, say, a missile or an aircraft moving through the atmosphere meant that the cohered beam of laser light would be subject to scattering, and lose much of the energy coming from the source of the emission. A way had to be found to mitigate this effect, and the means was phase conjugation, which (to be very crude about it) took a "picture" of the distortion or scattering effects themselves, and then used that distortion itself as a template to reconfigure the laser beam at the source in the opposite pattern or phase, thus allowing the beam to maintain its coherence and energy over much greater distances.  In some cases in the literature, this phase conjugation effect was even called "time reserved waves" because the effect of phase conjugation was to reverse the normal inverse square law of light scattering. Theoretically, the phenomenon meant that energy could be concentrated at the target, since the inverse square law was "reversed."

Thus, in this paper, the claim is to have used the same phenomenon to view the the light emitted from cells. This in itself is very intriguing, because if you've been following the work of U.S. Army Lt. Col. Tom Bearden (retired) over the years, you'll recall that the Soviet Union did a great deal of very classified research in biophysics, trying to discover the electromagnetic "templates" of specific diseases in cells, and of healthy "templates" in cells, and then allegedly used those templates to irradiate biological tissue to create, or cure, various diseases including cancer. And there as well, the phenomenon of phase conjugation entered the picture, though as in the above paper, in a biological rather than missile defense context.

Could this phenomenon be coupled to that of the recent discovery of a new kind of light wave emerging in the boundary transition between crystals and liquids that I blogged about in the above-linked blog? My high octane speculative guess is yes, and that those light waves will differ depending on the relative health of the liquid they transition into. But even if that is not the case, I strongly suspect that this paper about bio-optical phase conjugation is yet another indicator that Holmes was on to something, and something very big at that, and that we have not heard the last of the story.

See you on the ...

... oh, one more thought. Imagine applying such procedures to compare and contrast the signatures of GMO crops, versus their natural counterparts. What do you suppose they'll find? My bet is that they'll find subtle and important differences.

Ok, speculation over.

See you on the flip side...

    adding, do we really think they would allow us to DIY cheaply a real time spectroscope to look at Kevin Blanches dead tide pools for Fuku-radiation and get the ‘app’ to look up it’s signature component isotopes?

  2. Pierre on October 23, 2019 at 10:15 pm

    my poor understanding but,
    2 different things.
    one is kind of reverse engineering the original light by the interferences caused, like working out from a pool’s ripples the stone that was dropped into it.
    the other kind is strictly cohesion, from the juxtaposition(? or calibration?) of a pure beam (reference mirror?) with it’s penetrating beam identical twin, Optical Cohesion Tomography. Optometrist specialist use it routinely now to look at the eye nerve. either way, I have little idea about it.
    60fps, limited penetration (3mm for solid objects as of 15 years ago, spectacular resolution, nanometers, or almost ).
    what I really want to look at my cartilage to see about crosslinking, or not , non invasively.
    DIY, plans are open source (though i have never been able to find them). 2016


    meanwhile, update.


    and we know they are light years ahead of (ok, decades) where we are told.

    At least she wasn’t MH370’d. Or would the verb be better labeled as Freescaled?

    Either way, it’s ironic that such a light technology gets so persistently and consistently taken dark.

  4. Thorny on October 17, 2019 at 10:12 am

    Seems like there is also a possible application for invisibility here. Manipulate a soldier’s, infiltrator’s, or assassin’s emmitted biological light and ZAP!, he’s gone. They’re already on working on invisibility suits that manipulate light.

    Check out the Rudolf Steiner Archive Lecture II – Blood is a Very Special Fluid: https://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA055/English/AP1987/19061025p02.html

    I’ll start you with the opening as a teaser but very interesting read:

    The title of today’s lecture no doubt reminds you of a passage in Goethe’s Faust, when Faust, representing striving man, enters into a pact with evil powers, represented by the emissary from hell, Mephistopheles. Faust is to sign the pact in blood. At first he regards this as a joke, but Goethe undoubtedly meant the words spoken by Mephistopheles at this point to be taken seriously: “Blood is a very special fluid.”

    • Wlfgang on October 17, 2019 at 1:08 am

      Some critical additions from this lecture for those that want a speed read.

      “Modern science has discovered recently that if blood from one animal is mixed with another not akin to it, the two types of blood prove fatal to one another. This is something that has been known to spiritual knowledge for a long time. Just as unrelated types of blood if mixed cause death, so is the old clairvoyance killed in primitive humanity when blood from different lines of descent are mingled. Our modern intellectual life is entirely the outcome of the mingling of blood. Once this approach is adopted it will be possible to study what effect the mingling of blood has had on the various people in the course of history.”

      “whatever power wishes to dominate humans must take possession of their blood.”

      “A people’s racial character can be destroyed through colonization, when more is demanded than the blood can endure.”

      “Not till Beauty and Truth become part of a person’s blood does he truly possess them. Mephistopheles wants power over Faust’s “I”; that is why he seizes Faust’s blood. So you see that the quotation, which is the Leitmotiv of this lecture, arose out of profound knowledge. Blood is indeed a very special fluid.”

    Think the last scene of the film Indiana Jones Raiders Of The Lost Ark that says it all about knowledge and technology suppression Rife’s microscope is what came to mind when I read this post.

  7. goshawks on October 16, 2019 at 5:28 pm

    I am still going to go-with the original ‘project’ was for use in the field to track-down certain genetic differences. Ones where the subject would ‘disappear’ if not held in brief custody. Doing on-the-spot DNA analysis – rather than sending samples back – would be the only way to apprehend certain ‘types’. (While maintaining low public-visibility.)

    There is too much ambiguity to ascertain the actual ‘mechanism’ to be used. I do suspect, though, that Schultz, Mattis, Bechtel, et al, were not duped. They knew of a valid mechanism. That mechanism was proved-out, and then Theranos was folded with extreme prejudice (as planned)…

    • TheThinker101 on October 16, 2019 at 6:20 pm

      Hi there,
      With great respect I think you’re right but these people or any business never chooses one goal. What you said is one of the objectives. I don’t think it would be the only one.

    • Thorny on October 17, 2019 at 10:09 am

      Agree here that Theranos was probably folded or that the whole failure is a well-orchestrated hoax to hide what was going on. Could be they couldn’t trust Holmes for whatever they were up to.

  8. Nidster - on October 16, 2019 at 3:59 pm

    Does this technology imply that a new kind of optical spectroscopy for blood [ snooping ] also imply a more sinister use that will soon be coming to your local airport?

  9. Westcoaster on October 16, 2019 at 3:37 pm

    Folks, I could be way off in the weeds with this comment, but doesn’t this remind you of “Royal Rife’s” work?

  10. TheThinker101 on October 16, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    I don’t think she could have 1. developed this technology so small that it found fit into her “Edison” machine and 2. let alone got it to work.
    It would have to be made bigger especially if you’re doing a Research and Development AND application version of it.

  11. OrigensChild on October 16, 2019 at 12:38 pm

    As with Rife’s research the information makes it clear why this technology would be occulted and transferred into the Dark Imperium. Frankly, I don’t know what else to call it anymore. It ceased to be the Deep State long ago.

  12. Robert Barricklow on October 16, 2019 at 11:40 am

    This story has and continues to playout in my mind’s eye.
    The reason is this exemplifies the Tesla/J.P. Morgan: the economy based on petroleum vs free energy. The few maintaining their alchemical hold/bond on as much of closed systems has possible.
    It’s mankind against… ?
    Like keeping Aladdin’s Genie in the Lamp for the King’s excusive use.
    Yet, the Genie/Djinn vehemently hates Kings; much preferring to serve those of us, who too, must suffer the King’s absolute rule.

      Yes, I’m saying there is an innate justice in the living sprit;

  13. Billy Bob on October 16, 2019 at 11:22 am

    Oh you mean the ability to tell fake stuff from the real thing and eliminating the need for diagnostic blood labs? That would be quite an economic disruptor…not to mention the individual’s sovereignty and knowledge factors.

  14. anakephalaiosis on October 16, 2019 at 6:41 am

    A Goa’uld tracking device could prove useful, when overthrowing system lords.

    That is a practical application on the battle field, when dealing with snake brains.

    Just scan them, and zap them.
