This is the Sixth of a series of eight blogs (4 blogs with 2 parts each blog that will be presented one per week) where I present the basics of the book my late Father-In-Law Dennis Milner, completed just before his ascension – Kosmos.
3b – A Simple Technique for Unravelling the Atom
In our Expanded Consciousness Experiences (ECEs – more details in Article 2) we sought further insight into what was happening in our experiments, with Ted as the receiver.
Guide: Can you visualise the sandwich set up and look at the formation of the chains?
Ted: Right, O.K.
Guide: We will start with the question, ‘Are these water molecules unwinding?
Ted: There was a ‘Yes’ to that.
Guide: Can you get a picture of the water molecules inside the sandwich?
Ted: Yes, I’m in the gap in the sandwich and I’m surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of water spheres.
Guide: Now ask if we can look at the disintegration process forming the chains and describe it as you go along.
Ted: The switch is pressed and light floats out from the top plate in the form of beings that are moving quickly through this cloud of water spheres. Some glance off the spheres, some pass between them and occasionally a light being strikes one of these spheres squarely and penetrates it and this begins to release the grip of the individualising beings and the end of the coil of heart-shaped atoms springs out through the gap. This then drags out the rest of the chain, expanding as it escapes from the confines of the sphere. This chain goes on unwinding until what was all packed down into one sphere is tracing a path which runs halfway round our plate.
Guide: How does it register on the photographic plate?
Ted: The light ether beings from the discharge seem to get a response from the spheres and cause them to illuminate. Then as the chain unwinds it’s carried across by the light ether beings towards the opposite side and moves quite gently onto the surface of the plate (fig. 10), where the light goes out of it into the photographic emulsion. After that the image shows the individual heart shapes contracting to a very small centre and disappearing.

At this stage of our investigations we, and the ECEs, were using a terminology that had developed from our working with Steiner’s viewpoint which regarded everything as living, so that an electron or photon would be a living thing (e.g. a light ether being). Also one of the features of the current Universe cycle is that activities that were part of an interweaving whole have had independent individuality bestowed on them, again seen as resulting from the activity of (individualising) beings.
Guide: When you see an atom of hydrogen you see a sphere with coiled up chains surrounded by individualising beings, ask, ‘Is that an actual atom or is it a symbol?’
Ted: Symbol. Words came in that the actual atom isn’t unlike this symbolic one but the symbolic atom is all we can cope with. At the moment the true atomic picture is beyond us. What we have is symbolism for it and symbolism for the way in which it reveals itself.
Guide: If we put two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom together to get water, again you see it as a sphere – much like the atom. From this we get the impression that the hydrogen and the oxygen lose their identities when they become water?
Ted: Yes, I saw the oxygen and the hydrogen come together, the three spheres merged and left one sphere which looked the same as the individual ones.
Guide: Science sees it totally differently. It sees atoms as retaining their individualities and being held together by attractions between them.
Ted: The image forms that way also.
Guide: Which is nearest to reality?
Ted: The words come in, ‘serving one another’. The image is showing that they are still there as individuals and yet they’ve taken up the common role of water. Then when the light ether being comes along this thing unwinds as water.
Besant and Leadbeater stated that when a compound was observed clairvoyantly a mingling of the component parts of the atoms was seen; sometimes the atoms retained their individuality and sometimes they were much broken up. With water an oxygen ‘double snake’ structure retained its individuality and the two hydrogen atoms arranged themselves around it, while the group as a whole formed a sphere.
Guide: How is it that just one light ether being is able to bring about this unwinding?
Ted: The image shows this to be a very gentle process. The light ether being enters the water sphere and the outer shell begins to break down and then the thing begins to unwind. It appears to be finely balanced as if all that was needed was this almost soft push from the light ether being.
Guide: Can you get an image of a copper atom alongside the water molecule – does this unwind in the same way?
Ted: No, the light ether being seems to have much more difficulty here. The difference seems to be that the copper is much more securely grasped by the individualising beings and the light ether being finds it difficult to dislodge them.
Guide: How about a hydrogen atom?
Ted: This seems to be quite stable too and the light ether being has difficulty here also.
Guide: What about an oxygen atom?
Ted: The image looks similar to the copper one. The atom is very firmly grasped.
Guide: What feeling do you get for hydrogen?
Ted: One of floating off, drifting away.
Guide: And for oxygen?
Ted: Pulled down.
Guide: What happens when we put the two together?
Ted: There is the combination of the feelings of drawing to a centre and of wanting to move outwards. The light ether being moved into this and disturbed the balance, it added to the moving-out feeling and the sphere began to open up.
Guide: Change it to an ethyl alcohol molecule – does the light ether being enter this easily?
Ted: Yes, the system appears to be finely balanced and it can get in relatively easily and disturb this balance.
Guide: So, if we take anything that’s firmly grasped, like any solid atom, this experiment won’t work, but a liquid which is hovering on the borderline of changing to gas – water and alcohol evaporate readily – is amenable to unwinding?
We had also, of course, wondered about the relationship of these experiments to the conventional way in which science splits the atom:
Guide: Now change the image altogether and impact a high-energy particle on a piece of copper foil in a vacuum chamber, as conventional science does in splitting the atom and see what happens.
Ted: Well it appears to be very, very violent. The particle strikes the atom, the shell disintegrated, it breaks into pieces. The individualising beings are dispersed and the chain just explodes outwards, it doesn’t even begin to unwind, it just shatters completely and the little heart-shaped bits are spread out all over the place.
Guide: Can you view it as a chain that is fractured in many places?
Ted: Yes, that image forms.
Guide: Is science doing a bad thing when it does this?
Ted: Yes, it appears to be interfering with the natural order of things but what comes in, is that man works in the material world and has freedom to work with the means available to him. So if he has developed along these lines these are the methods he will use. It’s accepted.
Unfortunately we never got around to carrying this aspect of our researches3 any further but there is a great deal more that could be done to pursue this viewpoint on atomic structures to see where it leads to. Even if this technique is limited to breaking up atomic structures in water and other readily vaporisable substances, because it is a very gentle process that unravels these structures it gives information on how these are organised and, using homeopathic dilutions, it might be possible to find ways of breaking up other atomic structures. These experiments are very simple to carry out and do not require high cost, high powered atom smashing equipment.
