A NEW QUANTUM MICROSCOPE AND AN OLD STORY
There's a new microscope out there that they're calling a "quantum microscope," and it has me raising my eyebrows in a little bit of skepticism, not that the microscope doesn't exist nor do the things it claims to do, but for its curious resemblance to some now decades' old claims. The articles were spotted by A.S. and T.M., and both spotted the same curious resemblance of the "new microscope" to an "old story". We'll get back to the "old story" in a moment, but we must first understand the "new microscope":
Major Scientific Leap: Quantum Microscope Created That Can See the Impossible
Quantum microscope can examine cells in unprecedented detail
Australian scientists have succeeded in creating a new "quantum microscope," i.e., a microscope that relies on quantum entanglement to see down to very small levels, without using cell-destroying laser light; from the first article:
In a major scientific leap, University of Queensland researchers have created a quantum microscope that can reveal biological structures that would otherwise be impossible to see.
This paves the way for applications in biotechnology, and could extend far beyond this into areas ranging from navigation to medical imaging.
The microscope is powered by the science of quantum entanglement, an effect Einstein described as “spooky interactions at a distance.”
Professor Warwick Bowen, from UQ’s Quantum Optics Lab and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS), said it was the first entanglement-based sensor with performance beyond the best possible existing technology.
A major success of the team’s quantum microscope was its ability to catapult over a ‘hard barrier’ in traditional light-based microscopy.
“The best light microscopes use bright lasers that are billions of times brighter than the sun,” Professor Bowen said.
“Fragile biological systems like a human cell can only survive a short time in them and this is a major roadblock.
“The quantum entanglement in our microscope provides 35 percent improved clarity without destroying the cell, allowing us to see minute biological structures that would otherwise be invisible.
“Entanglement is set to revolutionize computing, communication, and sensing,” he said. “Absolutely secure communication was demonstrated some decades ago as the first demonstration of absolute quantum advantage over conventional technologies.
“Computing faster than any possible conventional computer was demonstrated by Google two years ago, as the first demonstration of absolute advantage in computing.
“The last piece in the puzzle was sensing, and we’ve now closed that gap.
Now, if this sounds vaguely familiar, that's because it is, but we'll get back to that.
But note how the article ends
The research was supported by the United States Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the Australian Research Council.
Before we get to that "vaguely familiar" thing, there's this slightly more detailed explanation from the second article:
Powerful microscopes have made a quantum leap. Using a quantum trick with light has allowed researchers to examine living cells in unprecedented detail without destroying them, a technique that could improve medical diagnoses and microbiology research.
The microscopes that are generally used to examine living biological systems shine one or two bright lights on their targets, and more powerful light sources allow researchers to see the cells in greater detail. But this approach has a fundamental limit to the precision it can achieve: at some point, a bright enough light will destroy a living cell.
Bowen and his colleagues have found a way to overcome this problem. They used a type of microscope with two laser light sources, but sent one of the beams through a specially designed crystal that “squeezes” the light. It does so by introducing quantum correlations in the photons – the particles of light in the laser beam.
The photons were coupled into correlated pairs, and any of them that had energies unlike the others were discarded instead of being paired off. That process lowered the intensity of the beam while decreasing its noise, which allowed for more precise imaging.
When the researchers tested their system, they found that they were able to make measurements that were 35 per cent sharper than a similar device that didn’t use squeezed light.
“In order to achieve this kind of measurement without quantum correlations, you’d have to turn the intensity up,” says Bowen. “But if you turned up the intensity enough to match these results, you’d destroy the sample, so we’re able to examine things that previously would have been impossible to see.”
Quantum microscopes will also have practical applications, Bowen says. For example, light-based microscopes are often used to determine if cells are cancerous or to diagnose other diseases, and squeezed light could significantly improve the sensitivity of those tests as well as speeding them up, he says. (Boldface emphasis added)
So now let's note what we have:
1) A claim to be able to see to finer cellular levels of detail than any hitherto known microscopy;
2) A claim to be able to do so without destroying a living cell, and thus, to be able to see the effects on a cell, say, of a genetic or nano-scaled therapy;
3) By using a "trick of light" involving photon entanglement, which, the article notes, is a phenomenon known to (and ridiculed by) Einstein;
4) which trick of light lowers beam intensity required to see to such levels by lowering the noise in the beam, or, to put this last point differently, by increasing the coherence of the beam. In this context, it should be noted that coherence of a beam of light is another way of saying "laser".
Now, if this sounds familiar, it should, because essentially these claims are very similar to the claims made by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife in the 1930s. For those unfamiliar with the story, Rife was a doctor who studied at Johns Hopkins whence he obtained his medical degree. The essence of the controversy around Dr. Rife was his claim, in the 1930s, to have invented an optical miscroscope which had to be tuned by him to see a living cell beyond the limits of the best optical microscopes, and even of electron microscopes. Electron microscopes killed the cells that he wanted to see live, and hence his special claims for his microscope. In other words, Dr. Rife was making the same claims as the "quantum microscope", as regards the first two claims above; he claimed (1) "to be able to see finer cellular levels of detail than any hitherto know microscopy", and (2) to be able to do so without destroying a living cell." On the basis of these claims, Rife went on to claim that he was able to find the resonant frequency of a diseased cell, and literally "vibrate" it to death, and using this method, claimed to be able to cure a number of diseases.
Dr. Royal Raymond Rife and his "tunable" microscope
Where Rife eventually ran into trouble was precisely claim number one, the ability to see to resolutions of detail not possible with any conventional optical microscope. But here is where the conventional denunciations of Rife also run into trouble, for Rife did not claim to be able to see this detail via conventional optics, but through the process of "tuning" his microscope (his term) to be able to do so. This led Lt. Col Tom Bearden (US Army, Ret) to speculate a few years ago that what Rife somehow managed to achieve was a quantum effect that that allowed him to see in such detail. By extension of this speculation, and viewing Rife's claim in the light of the University of Queensland's claims, "tuning" his microscope might have meant precisely the tuning of greater signal-to-noise ratios in his optics, in short, to tuning for greater coherence in his beams. Was he in fact utilizing some form of laser light in his microscope?
We will never know, but it is interesting to note that the physics of the laser certainly existed in the 1930s, and even the technology existed to construct a lasing cavity. Indeed, I argued for precisely this point in arguing for I.G. Farben's use of chemical-tunable lasers for laser isotope separation at its so-called "Buna" plant at Auschwitz, a plant that, quite suspiciously, managed to produce no buna in its four years of operation, while consuming more electricity in regular operation than the entire city of Berlin, a fact suggesting the "Buna" plant was no buna plant at all, but an enormous isotope enrichment facility.
Now all this speculation leads to an obvious question: was this an attempt, perhaps, to verify or even to extend Rife's work? Again, I suspect so, but I also suspect this will never be admitted because of the following question:
What happened to Rife's microscope? That's a subject of much controversy, and there are many claims for "Rife machines" out there that claim to be based on his principles and using "electrical principles" to work, in complete contradiction to what Rife actually claimed. In point of fact, such claims are at best questionable and at worst fraudulent, since Rife's laboratory was raided and his microscope confiscated, by medical authorities, and the microscope, notably, has not been seen since. That inconvenient fact means that any machine claiming to be based on Rife's principles simply cannot be so based other than in a broad conceptual sense, since lacking his microscope, we have no detailed understanding of what made it work, or even if it worked. Personally, I think it did work, since Rife was featured in local press stories in California from 1931 onward, and had even been given a banquet of honor by local medical professionals. But Rife was doing this mostly without expensive drug and/or surgical remedies ...
... and in that, of course, there lies yet another (sordid) tale.
But in the meantime, I think it is intensely interesting that decades later, from Australia's University of Queensland and in research sponsored in part by the US Air Force, we now hear a claim about a quantum microscope that, using a trick of light, sounds an awful lot like Dr. Rife's tunable microscope...
See you on the flip side...

Reading both articles hyperlinked by Joseph. Discovering there’s not public access to the paper referred to in the first link which supposedly goes into detail about why this proof of concept design is a the new sliced bread. Using the term “quantum” as many times as possible to suggest there’s something so very unique and special about what the UQ people have done here. There’s not, otherwise they would have a patent on the technology. It’s seems a fancy version of confocal light microscopy with principles of Rahman spectroscopy applied to essentially do some fancy monochromation of the diffracted and transmitted light. Ho-hum.
Reminds me of twenty years back where every researcher, charlatan and his’/her’ dog would use the term “nano” in an attempt to make what they were doing sound more innovative than it actually was. Prior to nano it was “biomolecular”.
I love the picture in the first link of the rather excited looking people standing around looking gleeful ( caption beginning “UQ researchers….”.) I can guarantee you people who work with or in a place with microscopes never stand around looking excited like that. Usually there is a depressing atmosphere of white fluorescent lights.
I get the impression none of the people referred to in the articles have an actual background or experience in pathology, histology, microbiology, mycology or imaging science. Some of us do. And would certainly not make claims such as…
“But if you turned up the intensity enough to match these results, you’d destroy the sample, so we’re able to examine things that previously would have been impossible to see.”
These included the wall of a yeast cell (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), which is about 10 nanometres thick, as well as the fluid within a cell, both of which would be faint even with the best non-quantum microscopes,”
These people have no experience at all with yeasts like bread yeast. They may not have heard of cell stains or recombinant tissue labels. There’s all kinds of things that can be done to image the structures they are referring to with technology that’s been around as long as Kohler illumination microscopy. Like how long do these twits need to for example diagnose cellular derangement in human tissue as oncogenic ( cancerous) – if they start cooking the slides in the process than they should not be working in a microscopy capacity within their employment.
Perhaps the real buzzword here is ‘entanglement’; simply imagine( or image) the yeast cells in the dough being lased, I mean raised, by an “All-New” method of Squeezed Light, thus producing an hitherto-unheard-of, New and Improved even Lighter Sliced Bread — now available in select stores from Quantum Breads of Entanglement Farms( formerly Wonderbread, subsidiary of Wunderwaffe, inc.).
Hmmm…”Quantum loaf..the out of this world bread you enjoy the day before”!
Similarly, this was written about in 1996…

It seems to me, there is a specific problem with high-tech and science conspiracy speculation compared to other alternative historical investigations that needs to be addressed.
Short form: If I read almost any book about 9/11, I can easily reject the official version to anyone who is ready to listen. But if I have a book about some “cold fusion” or “zero point energy”, I can do nothing serious.
Considering WWI, JFK, 9/11 or Covid19, one can easily come up with many facts that everybody understands and that can not be misunderstood. Not all of them need to be true, if enoug suspicious material is available, it’s good enough even if only the half is really true. So, coming up with a couple of such intriguing facts seems good enough from a epistemological point of view to reject the “Null Hypothesis” (eg that the event can be explained with coincidence, malfunctioning of institutions and some low level interests). But with science & high-tech, the situation seems much different to me. Sure, there is some “crapademia”, even the “replication crisis” shows it and I was astonished to discover that the corruption of science includes physics. Then I recently read “SS Brotherhood of the Bell” and got a further idea into possibilities of complete fake physics. But coming from precisely that “hard science” background, my level of doubt is much higher as for regular historical investigations.
First, if a single step of a scientific or technological reasoning is wrong, the whole theory or interpretation collapses. An high-level scientific concepts are quite complex that are easily misunderstood or misinterpreted. They do not in general mean what they seem to mean. They can be very counter-intuitive if by “intuition” we mean commons sense.
So my reaction reading the article was, Dr Joseph Farrell’s proposed identity between the laser “coherence” and the “quantum coherence” is really the same word, but something different: I thought I knew it from my college level knowledge of Quantum Mechanics and frequent reading about it. But then I have a doubt… But again, this new “Quantum Microscope” would just be a laser microscope? ? The new “microscope” is supposed to see down to 10 nanometers, gaining only 35 %. And the old one? Could it still be that he was on the right road even with very low resolution?
The second big problem is even deeper. Let’s say, we take following definition of “objectivity”: if all objections are sufficiently addressed, we agree on some explanation. Considering any conspiration, a few facts discussed with a few other investigators should be enough to agree on some interpretation, at least for the details. But for some alternative interpretation of physical facts or theories, let’s say some Tesla alternative Unified Field theory, what is needed, is to make it work with a huge collection of empirical phenomena and theoretical investigations. For example, I listened an interview with a cosmologist, and he explained to be confronted with thousands of alternative theories, but he could not even look at them. Because, even if someone comes up with a brilliant theory (by which I mean hundreds of pages of work, or even a new theoretical framework), that brilliant idea has still a very low chance of really working out through the whole scientific legacy. It would in fact need a whole staff or a new scientific community to roll out that new programm and possibly some very expensive engines to test it… In the worst case, we are even confronted with and Epistemological Revolution like described by Thomas Kuhn which is even more difficult to “roll out”!
I’d say the issues you raise aren’t exclusive to scientific topics. I agree we can’t all be experts in quantum physics (or history, finance, etc.), so we can always miss important details. But we can’t limit ourselves to thinking and having opinions about only subjects within our personal areas of expertise; otherwise, we’d never have much to think or talk about.
Oh but … I very much like speculations about sciences, and specially Dr Farrell’s! Everybody welcome. that’s not my point. My point is that it’s seems to me that for example physics is much more fragile wrt to its validity or misinterpretation than history. I just got that point of view by reading, thinking and talking about it myself which is… another speculation, albeit a philosophical one…
Yes, the Royal Rife microscope was what came to mind how many other technologies are sealed away like the Ark Of The Covenant from the last scenes in the first of the Indiana Jones films. All the technologies in all fields seem to have been deliberately suppressed and there seems to be a move to throw back into some bizarre pseudo stone age those of us that survive the great culling our masters have been planning for centuries.
Those items of the Ancients in plain sight and in stone still have stories to tell those that listen. Egyptian wisdom keepers often suggest that one listen and not just hear. And to use the 360 senses one has together. To think, western science is still infatuated with just five senses that Aristotle made clear.
. . . Especially, like the part about extending this beginning technology reference into “navigation and medical imaging.”
It seems that there have actually been some real fruits from Dr Royal Raymond Rife’s tunable microscope after all. And that’s only from the optical ranges of human visual perception. One shouldn’t leave out the acoustical applications of the ancients.
In one’s opinion, navigational adaptations might take into consideration that which moves at the sub-atomic (as is known by simian science) to that of the cosmological, beyond those confining equations of simian thought.
I have a suspicion that the trickle down of technology is increasing.
The Breakaways are bringing in some technology; albeit,
I think there reasons are not altruistic.
Think Cold Fusion and the recent Theranos story
To today’s blog…
“Without using cell-destroying…”; is a clue as to purpose: biological.
W/the advent of the covib1984’s globalized Medical Stasi, these kinds of tools are going to be used like rifles, targeting individuals through their combined and collusive – biological crosshairs’ lenses.[IMO]
What’s scary about this is the “spooky-at-a-distance” phenomena;
Being used, let’s say, in pharmaceutical applications – as in a turn on/off switch at a distance. Which could, in theory, be tuned[frequency signature] toward an individual target.
Sine “their” normal, is unequivocally abnormal;
these continuing advancements are but quivers of technological arrows,
targeting “humans” in the wild[acting natural].
These faster than light[poetic license] computers; are so fast,
they needn’t bother w/any sort of morality:
to actually think, before they shoot.
Looks like the research is being done by “Western” concerns.
Bet, this research won’t end up in other global hands.
Ironically, these “other” hands may be more human, than those of the “friendly” West.
Again, irony is becoming a frequent visitor in these times.
As in, “using a quantum trick w/light”: Let there be light!.
Which in this case, may become to mean: no more humanity?
When reading the detailed analyses of the light technology; all one has to do, is examine its counterpart: using light to destroy – to see what is really being researched.[IMO]
It’s, Back to the Future – again.
Where the technology is buried by “our” fearle$$ leadership, because they cannot control, nor monopolize this beneficial medical technology for all mankind.
As everyone in-the-know, knows;
the healthcare industry’s bottom line is profit, not healthcare.
In the 1930’s!
Think how far “they” have advanced this technology for those on that other world?
Oh! You don’t know that world?
The Breakaway Civilization we finance and invent for?
Of course, it is supposed to be very, very secret.
But even more secret; maybe the deals being bartered
w/”others” way out beyond the gravity of Earthly concerns.
Technologies for… ?
Here was a case of man being at his creative best.
Yet, here is a case of man being at his selfish worst.
And what pray tell, is the difference between these men?
Has one group been captured?
The apparent, for all practical purposes – evil one[s].
The “Rifes” are still w/us?
But for how long?
Are the evil ones, busily destroying those possible Rifes of light?
With? Oh, I don’t know. Injection of mRNA and/or DNA?
And, what other means?
In other words: Have we been invaded?
Is there waiting in the wings of power – an alien invasion narrative?
Are “they” going to use an alien invasion false flag op to:
Stage an alien victory?
Then list the terms of surrender;
which conveniently match their own desires/objectives?
“Our” hands are alien-tied; “we” can do nothing, but comply.
In other words, this alien invasion – is simply a narrative cloaking device used to implement their own draconian policies,
under alien conqueror terms of surrender – cover?
Basically, isn’t that what “they’re” doing now,
under this conquering cofib1984 narrative cover?
News’ narratives; being weaponized, as a conquering armies.
Now that’s an abnormal new, news’ definition?
Which is the “New” news normal, isn’t it?
Another “news” story, that won’t be printed;
yet will be televised, all to hell and back?
” ‘Without using cell-destroying…’ is a clue as to purpose: biological.” Bingo!
It’s the ultimate precision weapon, so no wonder the military is involved.
Rife is often imitated but no doubt in my mind he did heal people of cancer.
Without any credit to Dr. Rife, Anthony Holiday, a music professor demonstrated on Tedx finding a “virus” and determining it’s frequency and then phase conjugate it’s frequency and destroy it.
If disease Y vibrated at frequency X, Holiday would match that up by sending radio energy that was in sync to the frequency of the disease and turn up the power. The result was a destroyed disease. The caveat is that the radio energy would be pulsed at a rate that was 11 divided into the frequency. 100,000/11=9090.91 for example.
Could you find frequencies that would create a disease and send that frequency out over, say, a 4 or 5G network?
In one’s humble opinion, radio frequency / microwave frequency already has shown affects on corporeal materials (bioforms).
Great news, and I think we should bombard the interwebs with Rife’s name in connection with this, and congratulate them on proving Rife correct.
I wonder if they have been studying his scope in secret, and it took them this long to figure it out, or if they just found this on their own. Of course, just because they just announced it to the”rest of us” doesn’t mean they haven’t been using it in secret for some time.
My Uncle Quantum told me that story aeons ago….
There are a great many more newbees witness to this confiscated early technology than first thought.
Learned a long time ago that much of what I was taught in school was intentionally wrong. Especially history, physics, and biology. I remember discovering an enzyme that would only attack cancer cells while reading one of my biology books, but had no one to talk to about my idea and now can’t remember what it was. The section wasn’t about cancer but some other biological process where that enzyme broke down the substance protecting cancer cells but not found in healthy cells. Need to make the time to try to find what I had seen way back then and see if there really is something to it.
Keeping printed materials from last century now might help. Letting out what you’re seeking is a double edged conundrum. There are those seeking to keep it away from any and all interested, even to the point of destroying that printed knowledge while others will openly share and lose it, too. Last one checked, “Trust,” is still in the dictionary, but has the latest definition changed?
Seems there are a few known natural enzymes found since my youthful speculation that are known to do this. They also break down viruses and scar tissue from too much inflamation. And there are already supplements out there.
WOW 90+ yrs Rife’s ? …just sat there in storage? Sure just sat there gathering DUST ????? damn just how FAR ahead of us ….r they Yep ? just sat there ?
