What Has Become of the Rife Microscope?
by Christoper Bird
Originally published in New Age Journal (March 1976)
This article, like an embryo or any living thing, is still growing. A
continuum of this growth may depend upon the assistance of N.A.J.
readers, their colleagues, and their friends.
Originally I intended to write a short note on what was known about
the Rife microscope. Precious little is in print on the subject.
One day, while waiting for some material to come up from the cellar
stacks of the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda Maryland,
considerably frustrated by the lack of leads and data concerning the
demise of the Rife microscope, I wandered by the Subject card
catalogue and casually flipped at random to a card in the middle of a
drawer labeled "Microscopes."
The card was filed under "Allied Industries," as if that firm was the
author. The company's address was stated to be 4246 Pepper Drive, San
Diego, California. The title referenced was "History of the
Development of a Successful Treatment for Cancer and Other Virus,
Bacteria, and Fungi."
At the bottom of the card was a single line: "Written by Dr. R. R. Rife."
Entirely by accident, I had stumbled upon what looked to be only one
of a series of reports written by Royal Raymond Rife. Fourteen pages
long, it was numbered Dev1042. It was approved and signed by I.F.
Crane, manager; Don Tully, development associate; and Verne Thompson,
chief electrical engineer.
Are any of these gentlemen alive today?
Was Allied Industries a research corporation established by Rife?
How many other reports did it publish and where are they?
The report so riveted my attention that I was compelled to explore
some of the history of microbiology and its connection to cancer and
other disease. The present article, much longer than originally
planned, is thus the result of a fortuitous finding perhaps an
example of what Jung has called synchronicity and the consequent
Much more needs to be done to tell the story of Rife and his
microscope, a fascinating episode in the history of science.
The Microscope of Microscopes
In February 1944, the Franklin institute of Philadelphia published an
article, "The New Microscopes," in its prestigious journal devoted to
Founded in 1824 by "philosophermechanics," the institute, which
recently made studies in its physics laboratory on the best way to
move the Liberty Bell to its new Bicentennial Year location, is a
smaller analogue of the huge worldfamous Smithsonian Institution in
Washington, D.C., which reprinted the same article in its own journal
shortly after its first appearance.
Authored by R. E. Seidel, M.D., a Philadelphia physician and his
research assistant, M. Elizabeth Winter, the essay opened with a
sixpage discussion of the electron microscope, which had only
recently been put on the market by the Radio Corporation of America.
This microscope is today standard equipment in modem laboratories.
The article closed with a tenpage treatment of a "Universal
Microscope," the brainchild of a San Diego autodidact, Royal Raymond
Rife, who developed it with the financial assistance of the
rollerbearing and axle magnate Henry H. Timken, for whose family Rife
at one time served as handyman and chauffeur.
Rife's scope, the largest model of which consisted of 5,682 parts and
required a large bench to accommodate it, overcame the greatest
disadvantage of the electron microscope, its inability because tiny
living organisms put in it are in vacuum and subject to protoplasmic
changes induced by a virtual hailstorm of electrons to reveal
specimens in their natural living state.
With his invention, Rife was able to look at living organisms. What he
saw convinced him that germs could not be the cause, but the result,
of disease; that, depending on its state, the body could convert a
harmless bacterium into a lethal pathogen, that such pathogens could
be instantly killed, each by a specific frequency of light; and that
cells, regarded as the irreducible building blocks of living matter,
are actually composed of smaller cells, themselves made up of even
smaller cells, this process continuing with higher and higher
magnification in a sixteenstep, stagebystage journey into the
Though, with the aid of Rife's device, thousands of still pictures and
hundreds of feet of movie films were made to reveal these facts, all
of this material and the Rife microscopes seem to have disappeared
without a trace.
Or have they?
Calls to the U.S. Armed Forces Institute of Pathology Medical Museum,
which has hundreds of different microscopes in its historical
collection, to the National Library of Medicine's Historical Division,
to the Smithsonian Institution and the Franklin Institute (both
repositories for outstanding scientific inventions) and to a dozen
establishments dealing daily in microscopy elicited from curators,
medical pathologists, physicians, and other scientific specialists
only the complaint that none of them had ever heard of Royal Raymond
Rife and his microscope.
What has become of the Rife microscope?
The question is not rhetorical. For if even half of the possibilities
described for this astounding discovery are true, a massive effort to
hunt it down and reactivate its potential might not only save billions
of dollars in biological and medical research but open a fascinating
new vista onto the nature of life.
From the start, Rife's main goal was to find cures for disease,
especially the most intractable of all diseases, cancer. Because he
had a hunch that some as yet undiscovered microorganism would prove to
play a crucial role in the onset of this malignancy, he tried
unsuccessfully to find one by observing all types of malignant tissue
with a variety of standard research microscopes.
In the 1920s it became obvious to Rife that a better means of
scrutinizing the microworld than had been developed was indispensable.
During that decade, he designed and built five microscopes with a
range from 5,000 to 50,000 diameters at a time when the best
laboratory microscopes in use could achieve not more than 2,000
diameters of magnification.
At the Rife Research Laboratory on Point Loma, California, he worked
at magnifications of 17,000 and higher, to reveal a host of cells and
microorganisms never before seen and to photograph them. The work
required a saint's patience. It could take the best part of a day to
bring a single target specimen into focus.
The Rife microscope had several arresting features. Its entire optical
system of fourteen lenses and prisms, as well as an illuminating unit,
were made of crystal quartz, which is transparent to ultraviolet
radiation. In the scope, light was bent and polarized in such a way
that a specimen could be illuminated by extremely narrow parts of the
whole spectrum, one part at a time, and even by a single frequency of
Rife maintained that he could thus select a specific frequency, or
frequencies, of light that coordinated and resonated with a specimen's
chemical constituents so that a given specimen would emit its own
light of a characteristic and unique color. Specimens could be easily
identified, thus solving one of microscopy's greatest bugaboos. It was
control of illumination that turned the trick.
Another feature was the Microscopes extraordinary resolution, its
ability to reveal the most minute of component parts of any specimen
so that each may be seen distinctly and separately from the others.
Imagine two extremely thin parallel lines. When they can be clearly
distinguished, you are still within the microscope's range of
resolution. If the parallel lines blur together, high magnification
will only enlarge the distortion and limit of resolution has been
attained. With a resolving power of 31,000 diameters as against
2,000 to 2,500 for the laboratory microscopes in common use in that
dayRife's device could focus clearly on five lines of standardized
grid, whereas an ordinary microscope could do no better than examine
fifty lines, and that with considerable aberration. This is somewhat
equivalent to one aerial camera's being able to spot individual houses
in city blocks from a very great height, while another is able only
fuzzily to distinguish the single city blocks themselves,
Controversial Discoveries Beginning in the 1920s and continuing over
seven years, Rife and his colleagues worked on more than 20,000
laboratory cultures of cancer obtained from the Paradise Valley
Sanitarium in National City, California, in what appeared at first to
be a fruitless effort to isolate microorganisms that he felt should
somehow be associated with the disease.
Up until then, bacteria had clearly been proven to be linked with a
wide variety of ills including tuberculosis, leprosy, cholera,
gonorrhea, syphilis, typhoid, bubonic plague, pneumonia, and others.
But no one had found them in association with cancer.
In contrast to the much smaller viruses, bacteria were widely
considered to be unicellular, monomorphic (meaning one shape and one
shape only) forms. A quarter of a million of them can occupy a space
no larger than the period at the end of this sentence. They come in
various shapes. Cocei are round, bacilli rodlike, to offer two examples.
There are various forms for each shape. Of the roundshaped ones,
monococci appear singly, diplococci come in pairs, staphylococci in
clusters resembling a bunch of grapes, streptococci, which under
certain conditions can produce a painful sore throat, in chains.
While outside a host, or body, bacteria are hard to raise, or culture.
Each type has been studied as a pure culture type by isolating it upon
a specific nutrient called media.
Bacteria also have specific maximum, minimum, and optimum temperatures
in which they will live and multiply. Some, like polar bears, are
addicted to arctic temperatures and even live in ice. Others prefer
water so hot it would kill most animals. A great many enjoy the
temperature of the human body. Millions of them are living,
harmlessly, inside you right now...
But they are not always harmless. They can acquire virulence, or the
power to cause disease, under some conditions but not others, although
even today no one knows exactly why.
This mystery, in the 1920s, was closely connected to a debate in
microbiology so hot as to seem almost a war. On one side were those
who affirmed as do many textbooks today that bacteria were
eternally monomorphic. They could not assume other or smaller forms,
as small, say, as a virus.
Originally, virus the word means "poison" in Latin was the name
generally applied to any microscopic agent injurious to living cells.
Now it is much more narrowly defined as "one of a unique group of very
small infectious agents that grow only in cells of animals
(including humans), plants, and also bacteria."
Because they were so small, viruses would pass through filters that
did not allow the passage of bacteria, said to be monomorphic, just as
a net of small enough mesh will allow minnows to pass through it but
bring the fish that are preying upon them up short. It is this
filterpassing ability of viruses that is widely held today along
with their inability to grow on artificial media to be one of the
main criteria separating them from bacteria.
For several decades, however, another school of microbiologists
maintained that, far from holding everlastingly to one shape, bacteria
were pleomorphic, or form changing. They could be caused, under the
right conditions of culture, to metamorphose into forms small enough
to pass through filters just like viruses.
Because of their sharp disagreement on the filterability of bacteria,
the two camps came to be called "filtrationist and "nonfiltrationist."
One of the earliest of the filtrationists was a Swedish physician and
explorer, Ernst Bernhard Almquist, for whom islands off the north
Siberian coast are named. Almquist made hundreds of observations of
pleomorphic bacteria in his laboratory as did researchers in Italy,
Russia, France, Germany, and the United States. In 1922, after two
decades of work, Almquist came to the conclusion that "nobody can
pretend to know the complete life cycle and all the varieties of even
a single bacterial species. It would be an assumption to think so."
Way back in 1914, the American bacteriologist Dr. Edward C. Rosenow
had the gall to assert that bacteria were not unalterable and that
various strains, or what one might call subsubspecies of them, could,
when suitably treated, become any of the other strains. It was
Rosenow's contention, too, that he found a form of the streptococcus
bacterium which caused poliomyelitis, commonly known as infantile
What Rife's opinions were about this heated controversy are not known.
He followed the standard bacteriological practice of the day, first
implanting small patches of cancer tissues on various nutritive media
including a special "K" medium developed by another filtrationist, Dr.
Arthur Isaac Kendall, at the Northwestern University School of
Medicine in Chicago, Illinois. The medium, which bore the first letter
of Kendall's name, seemed to have the faculty of transforming bacteria
into the transitional forms alleged for them by the filtrationist
school, No matter how often he changed menus for his soughtafter
cancer microbe, no matter how he altered the temperature of
incubation, Rife seemed unable to coax it to appear in his cultures.
It was apparently only when, as a result of his continuing physical
experimentation with the effects of light frequencies, he discovered
that many microbes respond to the effects of light from noble gases,
such as neon, xenon, and argon, by changing their growth patterns that
Rife hit upon a solution to the problem that was nagging him.
He placed a sealed test tube containing cancer tissue into a closed
loop filled with argon gas. After creating a vacuum within the loop,
he charged the gas with electricity, just as one does when one throws
the switch to light up the neon lamps in modem offices, though in
Rife's case the charge was 5,000 volts. While he still could not
reveal any microbes, he noted a certain cloudiness in the nutritive
medium, which, through chemical analysis, he ascribed to ionization
caused by the electronic bombardment.
Readers may well wonder why he adopted so strange and novel a process.
The question is just as unaswerable as if put about Rife's next step:
In order, he said, to counter the ionization, he placed the tube into
a twoinch water vacuum and heated it for twentyfour hours at near
Under his microscope, at 20,000 X, the tube now teemed with animated
forms measuring only 1/20 by 1/15 of a micronmuch smaller than any
known bacteria. They refracted a purplish red color in the specific
He called this form Bacillus X and, later, because it was so much
smaller than other bacilli, and perhaps because of the filterability
controversy, BX virus. This problem of nomenclature can be resolved
herein by referring to Rife's organism as a BX form, or simply BX.
Rife writes that "this method of ionization and oxidation brought the
chemical refraction of BX out of the ultraviolet and into the visible
band of the spectrum. Owing to the fact that the testtube specimens
had gone through so many trials, we again started from scratch and
repeated this method 104 consecutive times with identical results."
Because he could culture his BX form, so small it would pass through
any filter, he seemed to have discovered a filterable form of a
bacterium. But just finding bacteria, even in filterable form, mi a
human tumor does not necessarily imply that they are its cause. To
make sure, it is held they must be reinjected into animals and seen to
cause the same or nearly similar disease, after which they must then
be reisolated and shown to resemble the original organism. These were
the postulates propounded by the German pioneer bacteriologist Robert
Koch, who proved that tuberculosis was apparently caused by the
Following this accepted procedure, Rife inoculated the new BX forms
into over 400 rats in all of which there subsequently appeared "tumors
with all the true pathology of neoplastic tissue."
Some of the tumors became so large they exceeded the total weight of
the individual rats in which they were developing. When the tumors
were surgically removed, the BX form was recovered from them in all
cases. Koch's postulates were fulfilled.
More Startling Discoveries
By continued microscopical study and repeated photography to stop
their motion, Rife and his coworkers next came to the baffling
conclusion that the BX, far from remaining always what he had seen as
the purplish red bodies a fraction of a micron in dimension, could
change into not just fairly similar forms as Rosenow had previously
discovered, but into completely different forms simply by altering the
medium on which they were living only very slightly.
"Slightly" in Rife's case meant an alteration in the nutrient
environment of only two parts per million by volume. Those who would
consider this unlikely may recall that in homeopathic medicine doses
of remedies are given in dilutions of this weakness and beyond. Even
though they have nothing chemically analyzable in them, they are
One such alteration caused the BX to become what Rife called a
Bacillus Y, or BY. It was still the same purplish red color as the BX
but so enlarged that it would not pass through a filter.
With the second change of the medium, the BY enlarged still further
into a monococcoid or single disk form which, when properly stained,
could be viewed under a standard research microscope. Rife claimed
that these forms could be found in the blood of over ninety percent of
By removing this form from the fluid medium it inhabited and
depositing it onto a hard base of asparagus or tomato agar, Rife then
saw it miraculously develop into a fungus, making it kin to a yeast,
mold, or mushroom.
Any of these succeeding forms, Rife stated, could be changed back
within thirtysix hours into a BX form capable of producing cancer
tumors in experimental animals from which, in turn, the same BX form
could again be recovered.
The transformation did not stop with the fungus, which, if allowed to
stand dormantly as a stock culture for a year and then replanted onto
the asparagus medium, would then change into bacillus coli, millions
of which live in the human intestine. This common bacillus could pass,
in Rife's words, "any known laboratory method of analysis."
Because he had found that microorganisms had the ability to luminate
when stimulated by given frequencies of light, it occurred to Rife
that they might also be devitalized by beaming radiations of specific
frequencies upon them. One source has it that the harmonics of these
frequencies ranged from 10 meters to 20,000 meters.
To this end, he had been developing concurrently with his microscopic
equipment a special frequency emitter, which he continued to improve,
up to at least 1953, as steady advances in electronics continued. The
killing waves were projected through a tube filled with helium gas and
said to be efficient in destroying microorganisms at a distance of as
much as one thousand feet.
With this device, he noted that when the proper mortal oscillatory
rate was reached, many lethal organisms such as those of tuberculosis,
typhoid, leprosy, hoofandmouth disease, and others appeared to
disintegrate or "blow up" in the field of his microscope. This "death
ray" principle was also effective when applied to cultured BX.
The obvious next step was to determine whether similar radiation would
affect the BX, not in culture, but in the bodies of cancerafflicted
animals. It apparently did so, for Rife states he got rid of BX in
over 400 experimental rats and other animals in his lab. If it worked
on animal cancers, wondered Rife, why not on human cancers?
The answer was so resoundingly "Yes" that, in our day when billions
are being spent each year to find a cure for cancer, it is prudent to
quote Rife's report wordforword:
The first clinical work on cancer was completed under the
supervision of Milbank Johnson, M.D., which was set up under a special
medical research committee of the University of Southern California.
Sixteen cases were treated at the clinic for many types of malignancy.
After three months, fourteen of these socalled hopeless cases were
signed off as clinically cured by a staff of five medical doctors and
Alvin G. Foord, M.D., pathologist for the group. The treatments
consisted of three minutes duration, using the frequency instrument
which was set on the mortal oscillatory rate for BX, or cancer, at
threeday intervals. It was found that the elapsed time between
treatments attains better results than cases treated daily.
The News Leaks Out
News of Rife's work began to leak out to the world of medicine at the
end of the 1920s. One of the first to learn of it was Arthur W. Yale,
M.D., who lived in San Diego, not far from Rife's laboratory. He
acquired a frequency emitter and began to treat cancerous patients.
In 1940, reporting to his fellow physicians on some of his decadelong
results, Yale wrote that because the whole of Rife's extraordinary
findings constituted an "entirely new theory of the origin and cause
of cancer, and the treatment and results have been so unique and
unbelievable," he was making his findings available in the hope that
"after further research we may eliminate the second largest cause of
deaths in the United States."
Yale had had limited success in treating cancerous tumors with X rays
and with the use of what he called "static wave current for some three
decades. When he began to use Rife's device, he sometimes employed it
alone, sometimes together, with the two methods with which he was
familiar. Both methods brought startlingly successful results. Yale
was careful to note that, when he added the use of the Rife ray to his
other radiation, cancerous masses "have disappeared in about onetenth
the time and so far with no reoccurrences."
Dr. Arthur Isaac Kendall, whose "K" medium Rife had used in his
experimentation, was also determined to check whether viable bacteria
in the filterable state could be unequivocally seen by Rife's
microscope. Kendall had been working with cultures of typhoid bacillus
and, under a standard microscope, had been able to detect a swarm of
active granules that could be seen only as tiny motile points. Because
nothing of their individual structure could be ascertained, Kendall
could not diagnose them with certainty to be filterable forms of the
In order to make certain, he went to California in late November of
1931 and examined his cultures under a Rife microscope at 5,000
diameters in the Pathological Laboratory of the Pasadena Hospital. The
facilities were afforded through the offices of the same Drs. Johnson
and Foord who had worked with Rife on the BX.
When Rife finally got them in focus, the tiny granules were seen to be
bright, highly motile, turquoiseblue bodies, which, to quote the
report he coauthored with Kendall, "contrasted strikingly both in
color and in their active motion with the noncolored debris of the
medium." The same observations were repeated eight separate times, the
complete absence of similar bodies in uninoculated control media being
To further confirm their findings, Rife and Kendall next examined
eighteenhourold specially cultured and inoculated colonies of the
same bacillus because they had determined that it was precisely at
this stage of growth that they became filterable. Now they could see
three transitional forms of the same organism: one, the normal
bacillus itself, almost devoid of color; two, the same bacillus but
with a prominent turquoise blue granule at one end of it; and three,
the same turquoise blue granules moving about independently.
This was somewhat equivalent to being able to observe a caterpillar,
its cocoon, and the butterfly that emerges from the cocoon, all
When they transplanted the filterpassing granules into a broth
medium, they were seen under the, Rife microscope to revert back to
their original bacillus, or rodlike, form.
At this juncture, the American bellwether journal Science got wind of
Kendall's work and, in a news story devoted to it, referred to the new
"supermicroscope" invented by Royal Raymond Rife. The same month,
December 1931, the RifeKendall account was published in California
and Western Medicine, the official mouthpiece of the state medical
associations of California, Nevada, and Utah. This magazine also
commented editorially that the KendallRife article was to be
particularly recommended to its readers because of its "calling the
attention of the world to a new type of microscope which, if it
fulfills its apparent advantages over any microscope thus far
developed, bids fair to lay the basis for revolutionary discoveries in
bacteriology and the allied sciences."
The editorial was significantly entitled "Is a New Field About to Be
Opened in the Science of Bacteriology?" Apparently it was about to die
The Opposition Mounts
The following month, Kendall was invited to give the De Lamar lecture
at the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health in
Baltimore, Maryland, before the Association of American Physicians. As
a leader of the filtrationist school, he attracted the attention of
his adversaries, two of whom were invited as discussants.
The first was an irascible, pugnacious curmudgeon, Dr. Thomas Rivers,
of the wellheeled Rockefeller Institute of New York City, who was
described by one of his institute colleagues as a "difficult and
formidable person to oppose and [he] could be stubbornly inflexible in
maintaining a position."
When he learned of his invitation to discuss Kendal's presentation of
the work with the typhoid bacillus, Rivers hurriedly repeated
experiments on which Kendall had worked for years and, by his own
account, got no proof of Kendall's claim. Based on this thin evidence,
he arose at the Johns Hopkins meeting and, to quote him "in a very
temperate manner called the fellow a liar. Not in so many words.
Actually, all I said was that I couldn't repeat this experiment and I
therefore didn't believe his findings were true."
Rivers was followed in the discussion by the Harvard microbiologist,
Dr. Hans Zinsser, also a "nonfiltrationist," who, to quote Rivers
anew, "just gave Kendall bloody hell. I'd never seen Hans so hot in my
life. I had to agree with everything he said but I really felt sorry
for poor old Kendall he just sat there and took it."
In the midst of the venom and acerbity, the only colleague to come to
Kendal's aid was the grand old man of bacteriology, and first teacher
of the subject in the United States, Dr. William H. "Popsy" Welch, who
evidently looked upon Kendall's work with some regard.
What is of interest today is that at the Baltimore meeting there
seemed to be no mention of the Rife microscope. Also, in the light of
the apparent victory of the "nonfiltrationists" over those who claimed
that bacteria were filterable, it was curious that Rivers could claim
to have repeated Kendal's work without the use of the instrument
Kendall had found so necessary to clearly reveal his filterable forms.
Kendal's work, however, attracted the rapt attention of the same Dr.
Edward C. Rosenow who, in 1914, had been able to prove that strains of
streptococcus were able, under the right conditions, to transmute one
into the other. In that day, he had written that these "conditions
were more or less obscure. They seem to call forth new or latent
energies which were previously not manifest and which now have gained
As a filtrationist, Rosenow was a maverick among bacteriologists up to
his death at ninetyfour in the 1960s. His work had convinced him,
also prior to World War I, that organisms in sera the fluids from
tissues of immunized animals commonly used as antitoxins to neutralize
microbes in the body might in some patients have dangerous
biological side effects.
The main implication of Rosenow's work in his own eyes was that
bacteria were not as important to disease as the terrain on which they
found themselves. "It would seem," he wrote in his 1914 article, "that
focal infections are no longer to be looked upon merely as a place of
entrance of bacteria but as a place where conditions are favorable for
them to acquire the properties which give them a wide range of
affinities for various structures."
Rosenow first became aware of the Rife technique through a patient at
the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where Rosenow was employed.
The patient was none other than the same Henry H. Timken, who had
financially aided Rife to develop his microscope and begin his
research in the 1920s.
Rife came to Chicago with his microscope. Kendall invited Rosenow down
to the Northwestern University Medical School to work with himself and
Rife on 5 May 1932. For three days, they made a restudy of the Kendall
forms, Rosenow working with a Zeiss microscope, Kendall with an oil
immersion darkfield instrument, and Rife with his special device.
"The oval, motile, turquoise blue bodies," wrote Rosenow of this work,
"described previously by Kendall and Rife were unmistakably demonstrated."
The three next decided to filter cultures of the streptococcus
bacteria that Rosenow had found to be associated with poliomyelitis to
see what the Rife scope might reveal. What they saw were not the blue
bodies linked to the typhoid bacillus, but cocci and diplococci of a
brownish gray color each surrounded by a strange halo. These could
only be observed in the Rife microscope.
Moreover, filtrates of a virus considered to be the cause of
encephalitis showed a considerable number of round forms, singly and
in pairs, which under the special Rife illumination were pale pink in
color and somewhat smaller than those seen in the poliomyelitis
Rosenow's work was panned by Rivers in public forum just as viciously
as was Kendall's. This was before Rosenow had worked with the Rife
microscope. "I had one runin with him," said Rivers, "at a meeting
held before the Association for Research in Nervous and Mental
Diseases during Christmas week. in 1931. I was pretty savage with him.
Do you think that helped? Hell, no, if you ask me for my candid
opinion, I think that most of the audience believed Rosenow."
This belief did not last for long. For a variety of reasons, including
the very difficult methods of culturing the filterable forms of
bacteria and lack of the Rife microscope to observe them the
"church" of nonfiltrationist bacteriology, of which Rivers was later
proclaimed "the apostolic father" (does one need better evidence of
hierarchical priesthoods and priestcraft in science?), was putting the
filtrationist camp on the defensive.
Three filtrationists, writing of discoveries similar to those of
Kendall, just prior to Kendal's Johns Hopkins lecture, thus considered
it necessary to state in their introduction: "It has come about these
days that to express convictions that differ from the consensus
gentium becomes almost professional foolhardiness: It brings down the
strictures of one's friends and enemies alike."
They added: "But we are also conscious of the fact that, beneath the
tumult of controversy between monomorphism and pleomorphism, there is
being born a new epoch in bacteriology, the limits of the significance
of which and the possible expansion of which no one can yet surmise."
Like all scientific revolutions, the epoch would have to wait
patiently for its time to come. Rosenow was held by his adversaries to
be 100 percent wrong in many of his observations. His son, Dr. Edward
C. Rosenow, Jr., chief administrative officer of the American College
of Physicians, asserts that his father was all but accused by
Rockefeller Institute research moguls of experimental dishonesty.
How was it that none of Kendall's or Rosenow's attackers bothered to
use the Rife microscope? Rife himself admitted that he was not
confident that his experiments, revealing the BX form, could ever be
repeated without the use of his scope. "We do not expect any
laboratory," he wrote, "to be able to produce the BX on account of the
technique involved and adequate optical equipment. This is why we have
never publicly announced that BX is the cause of cancer but we have
succeeded in producing from its inoculation tumors with all the true
characteristics and pathology of neoplastic tissue from which we have
repeatedly recovered the BX virus."
At the end of his life, Rosenow was philosophic about lack of
acceptance for his findings among his colleagues. "There is no way,"
he told his son, "to convince one's peer group of something new until
their attitude of receptivity changes. They simply won't listen." This
echoes the German Nobel Laureate in physics Max Planck, who stated
that for new ideas to be accepted, one had to wait for a generation of
scientists to die off and a new one to replace it.
The Search Continues
With respect to Rife's cancer observations, it may be that this
process of replacement is now taking place.
Rife's work. has a possible connection with research performed over
the last twenty years by several pioneers. One pair of them are Dr.
Irene Diller, a former longtime associate of the Institute for Cancer
Research in Philadelphia, and Dr. Florence B. Seibert, professor
emeritus of biochemistry, University of Pennsylvania.
One day in the late 1950s, Diller called Seibert, who won many awards
and five honorary doctorates for her more than thirtyyearlong work
on tuberculosis, and asked her to come and look at some microbes on
slides. On the slides, Seibert observed tiny round organisms. When
Seibert learned that Diller had isolated them regularly from many
other tumors, as well as from the blood of leukemia patients, she
hastened to ask whether Diller could find them in a sarcoma tumor she,
Seibert, was studying.
After several weeks, Diller showed Seibert a tube filled with a
slightly grayish and moistlooking culture fined with small round
cocci. Injected into mice, they produced cancerous tumors.
Seibert became convinced that Diller might have found a link to
cancer. Because so many scientists, believing Diller's new forms to be
merely "ubiquitous contaminants" in her cultures, were writing off her
work as spurious, Seibert decided to continue working on the problem
during her Florida retirement, first at the Mound Park today the Bay
Front Hospital in Saint Petersburg, later at a Veterans
Blood samples from cancer patients with varying types of leukemia were
obtained and from every one of them Seibert was able to isolate
pleomorphic microbes. These bacterial forms were also isolated from
tumors, and with a homologous vaccine they decreased tumors in mice.
Just like those of the RifeKendallRosenow research, they could
change from round to rod shaped and even could become long threadlike
filaments, depending on what medium they were grown in and for how
long. They would pass a filter and at this stage in their life cycle
they were about the same size as Rife's BX forms.
Today there is great stir about, and much money devoted to, viruses in
relation to the cancer problem. The most recent edition of the
Encyclopedia Britannica states that "sufficient evidence has been
acquired to indicate that one or more viruses probably cause cancer in
man," and that carcinogens, or cancerproducing agents, "are suspected
of producing cancers by activating viruses latent in the body."
But, so far, little support is given to those who ascribe bacteria and
the forms into which they transmute the ability for close association
with cancer. This legacy of the nonfiltrationist school persists in
the face of mounting evidence that the filtrationists may have been
right all along.
These days, because various bacterial forms have been noted to have
anomalies in their cellular walls how could they develop into
smaller forms if they could not leap beyond or through the walls that
imprison them? They are known as Cell Wall Deficient Forms. A
revolutionary new book about them has been written by the Wayne State
University microbiologist Dr. Lida H. Mattman, Her text opens with the
statement: "Clandestine, almost unrecognizable, polymorphous bacterial
growth seems to occur as often as the stereotyped classical boxcars of
bacilli and pearls of cocci ..." The book's contents would seem to
indicate that the new era predicted in 1931 for filtrationist
microbiology is dawning, though presently its adherents are having
great difficulty both in publishing their work and getting grants for
Sufficient data, writes Mattman, have been amassed to warrant
reinvestigation, and adds: "There is no subject generally viewed with
greater skepticism than an association between bacteria and human
cancer. However, the medical profession may look back with irony at
the stony reception given by his home colleagues to Koch's paper
elucidating the etiology of tuberculosis. Similarly, medical students
were once taught that whooping cough vaccination was an unrealistic
dream reported only by two women at the Michigan Public Health
Laboratories and by a pediatrician namer Sauer."
Most importantly, she concludes: "One must always consider that most
malignancies are accompanied by an immunodeficiency ... Therefore, we
could be dealing with a microbe that finds such a host merely a
suitable environment for habitation."
This is very close to Rife's own statement that he had unequivocally
demonstrated that "it was the chemical constituents and chemical
radicals of an organism which enacted upon the unbalanced cell
metabolism of the human body to produce disease." Before he died, Rife
stated: "We have in many instances produced all the symptoms of a
disease chemically in experimental animals without the inoculation of
any virus or bacteria into their tissues."
What, then, of Royal Raymond Rife and his microscope?
How is it that biologists and physicians, other than Kendall and
Rosenow, did not rush to investigate it? Why haven't physicists looked
into the effects Rife achieved with electromagnetic waves of specific
frequencies upon disease, including cancer?
Similar effects were observed by Dr. Georges Lakhovsky in Paris, who
developed a wave emitter called a multiwave oscillator with which he
cured cancer as well as other diseases in plants and humans. The
multiwave oscillator is today banned by the FDA as quackery. They have
also been noted in Bordeaux by another inventor, selftaught as was
Rife, Antoine Priore, whose apparatus combines the use of
electromagnetic radiation with a plasma of helium or noble gases
reminiscent of Rife's method used in detecting and devitalizing BX.
Are the strange blue, motile forms that Dr, Wilhelm Reich discovered
in the late 1930s and for which he coined the word bions related to
the foregoing? Reich observed the bions to spontaneously proliferate
from specially treated organic matter and even from coal and sand!
Spontaneous generation of life was supposed to have been laid to rest
in Reich's time, as it is in ours, and he was accused by fellow
scientists of confusing Brownian movement of subcellular particles or
debris in his cultures with the new subcellular forms he claimed to
In cancerous patients, Reich observed the bions to degenerate into
what he called Tbacilli (the T coming from the German word Tod,
meaning death). When injected into mice, they caused cancer just like
Rife's BX forms.
In Copenhagen, a biophysicist named Scott Hill reports that a new book
written in Russian by two researchers at the Kazakh State University
in the U.S.S.R. deals with a whole new branch of medical science in
which "healing" of various disorders is being accomplished by the use
of ultraweak, monochromatic laser light. Shades of Rife!
The Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
maintains that Rife, his microscope, and his life work were tabooed by
leaders in the U.S. medical profession and that any medical doctor who
made use of his practical discoveries was stripped of his privileges
as a member of the local medical society.
Rife himself died three or four years ago. Considerable digging has
not established what happened to his estate. The remarkable instrument
he conceived and developed and its photographic evidence may still be
in existence. They are worth looking for.

When one views cancer as a cellular disease, isolated from general
biological disorders and developing along proper norms that are local
and independent of any possible carcinogenic agent whose persistence
is no longer indispensable to the autonomous progression of the
tumoral process, the therapy is centered on "the tumoral mass," whose
destruction and radical removal becomes the only imperative means of
Until now, among the means at our disposal for combating this disease,
the surgical solution has figured most prominently. This solution,
which best addresses the notion of "tumor as a local disorder,"
consists of the radical removal of the autonomous and parasitic mass
from the cellular agglomeration, which appears as an immediately
Next came the radiation solution. This therapy applied to tumors,
which promises the destruction of the tumoral mass by deep
disintegration of the cancerous cells and for which the question of
dosage and irradiated surface is an important consideration, would not
be efficient other than to the extent in which the radiation would
reach the neoplastic, cells, not with the intent of immediate and
blind disintegration but rather to force a reversal of the
pathological synthesis that is the source of their malignancy.
Finally came the chemotherapeutic solution. The therapeutic solution
based on the use of chemicals toxic to such cells, which is to say by
karyoclasic poisons that stop the mitoses by plasmatic division and
chromatic alteration, leads to duplications of the number of
chromosomes and abnormal mitoses, The karyoclasic action of this
therapy appears, with regard to neoplastic mitoses, as an essentially
negative mode of stopping, blockage, and chromial distintegration and
furthermore presents a danger without speaking of general toxicity
to the mitoses of normal cells and, among others, to that of the
For some time already, a new orientation had been taken in the work of
researchers studying cancer. As a matter of fact, the possibilities of
natural immunity, as much zoological as physiological or individual in
the cancer grafts, whose essentially antitissular nature remains
obscure, have shown that cancer should no longer be considered a
cellular disease isolated from general biological disorders. To the
contrary, the evolution of this disease is linked to conditions of the
organism, and the aptitude to cancerization points back to the
To grow, the tumor needs the organism, and without the latter
cancerization cannot take place. Given the interaction that exists
between the organ and the tumor, in particular its vascularization and
the composition of the blood that irrigates it, as well as the state
of nervous influx pertaining to it, all modification of these
different factors can thus have an action on the very life of the
cancer. The process that at certain times permits the host carrier of
tumor to stabilize it should be analogous to that which permits an
individual to harbor in his throat diphtheria bacillis without being
stricken by this disease. it is possible that similar phenomena occur
with regard to malignant cells. This is reasoning by analogy. If one
considers the numerous possible causes of cancer that surround us, is
it not possible that there exists in certain individuals a resistance
to the development of cancer?
A number of studies have been undertaken with the purpose of
clarifying this problem. The first attempts were undertaken with
patients stricken with advanced cancer, who had volunteered to undergo
these experiments. Some tumor fragments, removed from other persons
and cultivated for a long time in an artificial medium, were implanted
under the skin of their forearms. The grafts were accepted and
progressively grew in volume. This result was in contradiction with
the usual biological rule that requires that a tissue removed from an
animal does not develop itself if it is grafted on another animal,
unless the latter is a true twin of the first. The explanation of this
statement, which appears to be paradoxical, requires that, with
patients stricken with advanced cancer, the natural defense that
opposes the acceptance of grafts had disappeared. one could inquire
further if all the usual defenses of these fatigued patients had thus
given up. The experiment showed that the normal defense mechanism that
yielded to the cancer remained intact in all other respects. It is
thus that a graft of normal tissue was rapidly eliminated. The two
possible explanations were that either the cancerous tissue had a
particular ability of growth contrary to the usual laws that rule
grafts, or the patient had lost, especially with regard to cancerous
cells, the possibilities of normal defense. The question then was:
Would cancer cells transplanted to a normal individual be capable of
A systematic study of this question had been undertaken by the cancer
research center in New York, which called on volunteers from an
American prison. From more than one hundred volunteers, fifty men were
chosen. These men received an implant of a human cancer culture, the
same type as that which had been utilized within the patients stricken
with cancer. With the fifty volunteers, there had been one important
defensive local inflammatory reaction, and the graft disappeared
completely in four weeks. This experiment demonstrated that the human
body possesses some type of resistance to the growth of cancers
transplanted from another man. This resistance does not exist with
patients stricken by advanced cancer. These experiments lead one to
attempt to stimulate the natural defense of an organism against
cancer. This is why several research projects were undertaken in the
area of immunology.
It is a question of knowing if the elements that constitute the
malignant tumor, essentially the chemical elements that form the cell
or the nucleus, are capable of playing the role of antigen. That is to
say, to provoke in the organism that contains them the formation of
antagonistic substances called antibodies, whose role it is to oppose
the development of the former, or antigen. If such a property can be
disclosed in malignant tumors, it would indicate the possibility of
promoting the formation of such antibodies for fighting against the
development of cancer.
The problem is not so simple, though, because the normal tissues from
which cancer results are grafted on another subject. It is necessary
to suppress the antibodies thereby formed in order to verify if other
antibodies exist whose formation would be due to the presence of
malignant tissue. It would be necessary to admit that not the tumor
but perhaps one or several elements of the cell play the role of
foreign body in its development of the organism. It is possible to
consider that, in certain circumstances, there exists a certain degree
of antigenic properties, and that it may then be possible to promote
the development and encourage the formation of corresponding
antibodies. This phenomenon would then be able to explain why certain
carrier subjects of cancer, although having diffused the cells from
the primary tumor in the organism, do not lead to the development of
other metastases. The cells stopped at other points could have
provoked there the formation of antibodies that were opposed to their
development or that could have destroyed them. One can equally
envision a lowering of immunity that had stabilized the swarming
cells, thus allowing for the development of metastases years after the
destruction of the initial tumor.
The problem of cancer viewed from this angle makes it necessary to
study the life of the malignant cell in order to discover which
antigenic agents would be capable of producing such antibodies as are
capable of destroying cancerous cells. Despite very particular aspects
of the malignant cell, it is surprising to note that one may again ask
how it can differ from a normal cell. Research seeking to put into
evidence a new element not found in normal cells found no conclusive
result. On the contrary, it would seem that there are qualitative
differences in the choice made by the cell between the primary
materials that supply it in particular in the chemical phenomena and
the fermentations leading to the formation of nucleic acids the role
of which is essential in the Life of the cell.
Tumor cells utilize more glucose than normal cells, but no
quantitative differences have been found between normal tissue and
tumoral tissue. This strongly indicates an increase in the formation
of lactic acid. Tumor cells utilize the energy produced by the
destruction of carbohydrates for the synthesis of cellular proteins at
greater levels than normal cells. The cells return to a simpler form.
The phenomena associated with fermentation (linked to ferments called
enzymes), basic to proper life, simplify the cell, which then loses
more or less those functions that individualize it and make it pertain
to a specialized organ. Before the cell has utilized all its capacity
for synthesis, it divides, thus prematurely interrupting the cycle of
its activities and aggravating the disorder at each division. In
response, it recovers former properties remembered from its origin
most important of which is the aptitude to multiply more rapidly, with
consequences that are one of the manifestations of its malignancy,
This abnormal growth in number is due to a liberation of the control
system that normally maintains tissue harmony. The cells then become
dangerous parasites or anarchists in the midst of the cellular
community. The malignant cells appear "privileged and antisocial."
They first monopolize materials, and, in particular, amino acids,
indispensable to the life of all cells, whether normal or malignant,
What is especially striking is the intensity of these physical or
chemical phenomena in comparison to ordinary chemical phenomena in
normal conditions. The surrounding conditions (temperature, pH, and
molecular pressure) have a capital importance in the phenomena of
Physical State of Humors
Of all the problems, the most important is, without doubt, the
disorders of the humoral system engendered by these phenomena and the
consequences that come from the behavior of individuals in a normal or
pathological state. Hippocrates, and, well before his time, the
Hebrews and the Egyptians, already attributed the major part of morbid
incidents to troubled humors. By "humors," we mean the extracellular
liquids of the organism. They form the fluid part of the circulating
blood the plasma in which the sanguine elements appear, such as
the suspended white and red blood cells, and also all the interstitial
liquids, either lacunal or other, which bathe, impregnate, or encircle
the tissue and organs. Not having a precise means of investigation,
the ancients completely ignored how and why humors can be innovative.
Later, when the constitution of these humors became known, medicine
sought to discover which of the substances that compose these humors
was responsible for the incidence of pathology. Having identified that
all experimentally provoked variations, in terms of diverse humorous
constitutional elements, had been powerless to reproduce the symptoms
of acute or chronic disease, they came to this conclusion
diametrically opposed to that of Hippocrates. that the humoral state
plays no role in the genesis of illness. Medicine then became
"solids": Only lesions were considered important; the state of humors
was left aside.
On a modern basis, we will endeavor to recognize the triumph of
humoral medicine in discovering the real reason for the innovative
behavior of humors, which resides not in their chemical constitution,
but in the physical state of certain elements, when the latter ones
change to the state of a solid. We are drawn to examine the behavior
of observable elements in all biological liquids; in particular, our
attention has been retained by extremely tenuous particles, whose
presence has already been signaled by numerous authors at the end of
the previous century.
For quite some time already, the microscope has been an indispensable
instrument for precise measurement in research laboratories and the
industry. The classical microscope normally permits enlargement on the
order of 1800 X with a resolution of 0.1 microns. The electron
microscope permits enlargement on the order of 400,000 X with a
resolution of 30 to 50 angstroms. But use of the latter necessitates
manipulations that alter the physical aspect of objects being observed.
We have thus perfected an instrument for microscopic observation,
which we have called the Somatoscope. The primary quality of this
apparatus is that it permits the observation of live elements and can
follow the polymorphism to enlargements attaining 30,000 X with a
resolution on the order of 150 angstroms. Using this instrument, we
have observed, in all biological liquids and particularly in the
blood, an elementary particle endowed with a movement of
electronegative repulsion, possessing a polymorphic nature. We have
called it the somatid. This extremely tenuous particle, whose
dimension varies from a few angstroms to 0.1 microns, can be isolated
and put in a culture. We could then observe the polymorphic cycle. We
were surprised to discover in this cycle such elements that we had
regularly seen in the blood of healthy persons but equally in the
blood of carriers of diverse diseases. We made certain correlations.
In the blood of healthy persons, we observe somatids, spores, and
double spores. In the course of this microcycle, we can detect the
production of a trephone. This is a proliferative hormone
indispensable to cellular division. Without it, life does not exist.
In healthy individuals, the evolution of this cycle is stopped at the
level of the double spore because of the presence of trephone
inhibitors in the blood. These are either mineral substances, such as
copper, mercury, aluminum, and lead, or organic substances, such as
cyanhydric acid, etc. In the course of this microcycle, the quantity
of trephones necessary for cellular multiplication is thus elaborated.
If, because of stress or some biological disturbances, the inhibitors
in the blood diminish in concentration, the somatid cycle continues
its natural evolution and one sees the appearance of diverse forms of
bacteria. These have also been termed by German scientists during the
1930s syphonospora polymorpha.
Next come the mycobacterial forms, and then the yeastlike forms.
These forms with a dimension of 4 to 5 microns evolve rapidly into
ascospores, then by maturation become asci. At this stage of
evolution, the ascus, after staining on a blood smear, appears as a
small lymphocyte and cannot be differentiated by conventional means.
Next come the filamentous forms. One can observe from an ascus the
formation of a thallus in which evolves a cytoplasm of increasing
importance. The cytoplasm is formed from the ascus and a conjuncture
is observable between them. It is by this conjuncture and by
peristalsis that the cytoplasm forms in the thallus. This apparent
mycelial form responds to none of the criteria of fungal elements. In
fact, it is in no way affected by massive doses of Amphotericin B,
Fungizone, or other antifungal agents. When this pseudomycelial
element has attained its full maturity with an extremely active
cytoplasm, we then witness the bursting of this thallus and the
liberation into the surroundings of an enormous quantity of new
particles capable of reinitiating a complete cycle. The empty thallus
has a fibrous aspect. Furthermore, it is often seen on blood smears
but it is considered as an artifact of the staining procedure.
From the preceding observations, we have been able to draw the
1. Cellular division requires the presence of the somatid (which
is either in the animal or plant domain).
2. Trephones are elaborated by the somatid.
3. The somatid is capable of polymorphism. This polymorphism is
controlled by inhibitors found in the blood.
4. A deficiency of sanguine inhibitors permits the elaboration
of a large quantity of trephones, which in turn lead to disorders in
5. All degenerative diseases are a consequence of these disorders.
In light of the above observations, the notion of "cancer, a general
disease which is localized," takes on its meaning when one examines
the evolutionary process of this affliction. This process can be
divided in two parts:
First Part: Cancerization, or initiation
When, for whatever reason, the sanguine inhibitors diminish and the
polymorphism of the somatid is no longer stopped at the double spore
state, an exaggerated formation of trephones in the organism leads the
cell to return to a simpler form. The phenomena of fermentation
(linked to ferments called enzymes), basic to proper life, simplifies
the cell. It then loses more or less those functions that give it its
individuality and make it pertain to a specialized organ. The cell is
divided even before it has utilized all its capacity for synthesis,
thus prematurely interrupting the cycle of its activities and
aggravating its disorder at each division. In response, it recovers
old properties remembered from its origin the most important of which
is the aptitude to multiply rapidly, with consequences that are one of
the manifestations of its malignancy. This abnormal growth in number
is due to a liberation of the control system which normally maintains
At this stage, the cancerization is effective. It can be called
initiation, or precancerous. We now have an accelerated and anarchic
multiplication of one or several cells which provokes, by an
agglomeration of their descendants, the occurrence of a new "entity"
opposing the organism that had given birth to it, The immune system
then enters into action and fights actively to eliminate this entity.
In this fashion, we develop a small cancer daily, but our immune
system rids us of it.
Second Part: Cocancerization, or promotional
If the immune system is somewhat deficient and the new entity has been
able to reach a certain proportion, it then attains a "critical mass"
of cells in anarchic proliferation. This entity that has been able to
escape from the immune system needs an enormous quantity of nitrogen
for subsistence (the cells of this entity are moreover named nitrogen
traps) It then emits a substance that allows it to withdraw nitrogen
derivatives from the organism and that, at the same time, paralyzes
the immune system. We have called this substance Cocancerogenic K
The paralyzing action of CKF against the immune system appears only
when the critical mass of cells in anarchic proliferation is reached.
From this moment, the organism finds itself without defense against
this new entity that can develop at will and progressively invade its
