Books Left Behind by Edward Leedskalnin

Post by Jeremy »

There are three different books in the museum at Coral Castle that seem to have been left behind by Ed.

I have been able to identify two of these, they are:

FM TRANSMISSION AND RECEPTION, by Rider & Uslan (1949)

and

Handbook of Electrotherapy by Burton Baker Grover
(I'm not sure which edition).

So, go and buy them! I did. :D

The third, I have not been able to ID.. yet.

However, I was able to gather useful information from the book. It is clear that Ed was using the two books extensively. Spark gap technique is widely used in Electro Therapy and method are described in this book.

See link
http://books.google.com/books?id=I4cT1h ... t&resnum=1

The text is a bit different to Ed's, too. I couldn't find one that is exactly the same, but it definitely seems to be that book, in one version or another. It's like portions of the text are identical, and then other parts have been rewritten. Some images are different too, but they look like the same idea, just redrawn.

And I won an original 1936 'A Book in Every Home' on ebay this morning. :D The original cover image has better contrast than all of the other versions I've seen online.

Hey guy's great stuff.
As you know....
The cross-bar's ability to swing the North and South pole magnets off its center will remain as long as the cross-bar is not disturbed. It has little power but it could be made stronger by making bigger dimensions. From the above experiment you can see the perpetual motion holder can act as a living thing.
It knows which way to swing each magnet. This shows if more magnets are added to a living then it can perform things it could not do before. The same is true concerning our body and everything else. Those surplus magnets, they are real life. :lol:

Tesla used to send through his body as much power as was being made at the Niagra power plant....

The magnets are the real life.
There are actually no forces at all....anywhere. :!:
Scotty... ;)

Hello Jeremy,

Maybe it would be easier to just ask one of the guides in Coral Castle to open up the display case and check the cover of the book. That way the exact edition of the book can also be known.

Omar

That's a good idea in theory. They don't like to open it, though. :)

Jeremy,

I think it's because Ed scribbled all his secret notes over the next page!

:lol:

Omar, is it just me or is this another reason why Humans won't inhabit Earth long term?

:D

How about just asking them for the information? Maybe they already know it, without opening the case.

The lust for power and control make a few on this planet go crazy. These are just signs of insecurities and inmature behaviour by "the powers that be".

Thank you for this amazing forum, Jeremy! It is totally mind-blowing.

Did you identify the thirds book please? The pictues don't show.

Ed did have one of these:
