The Chromatic Curve
The chromatic curve is a part of a circle which is
emblematic of endlessness.
The dotted triangle in the diagram is emblematically
of progression from the base upward to the apex.
It will be observed that at the left of the
complementary blue begins and that is the plus or positive
color. At the
right the dark-room ruby begins and that is the minus or
of colors chromatically shown.
A. – Complementary blue, a positive color.
C. – Dark-room red, a negative color.
B. – The combination of the two gives neutral
violet which is both positive and negative.
D. – Brilliant yellow at the apex of the triangle,
tending toward infinity.
The radiation from these two terminals, plus and
minus, make the “neutral” violet which is neither
positive or negative but a combination of both.
Therefore we have placed it lower down on the scale
than either the blue or the ruby.
From the complementary blue or cyan blue upward we
pass through greenish cyan blue, turquoise, bluish green,
sap green, yellow green, and lemon yellow, until we reach
the brilliant yellow at the apex of the triangle.
From the brilliant yellow we go down the scale
through orange yellow, orange, orange red, etc.

In this figure we do not pay much attention to crimson, magenta, purple magenta, purple, purple violet or blue violet because they are chromatically speaking below the base of the line of the triangle and therefore belong in the space nearby where "neutral violet” is placed.
There are many more shades of red and yellow than are
ordinarily depicted. Therefore
the space between the complementary blue and the brilliant
yellow is about the same as between the brilliant yellow and
the dark-room ruby.
Brilliant yellow is at the apex of the triangle
opposite the neutral violet.
It is also at the highest part of the chromatic
curve, equidistant from the complementary blue and the
dark-room ruby. The
brilliant yellow is graphically represented by the sign of
This scheme of colors is unlike many others, but it
carries out the fundamental principle of the polarity of
Energy possessing only positive polarity is
dissipated by radiant darkroom ruby light.
Energy possessing only negative polarity is
dissipated by radiant cyan-blue light.
Energy possessing neutral or unstable polarity is
dissipated by radiant neutral-violet light.
This seems to prove that dark-room ruby or
non-actinic rays of light have a similar effect upon the
sympathetic vagal reflex as negative energy, or as negative
must in some way be related.
It is well known that the rays of light toward the
red end of the spectrum are stimulating.
It is also well known that negative electricity is
The fact that blue, or actinic rays, act on this
reflex similar to positive energy, or positive electricity,
seems to prove that they are in some way related.
It is well known that the colors toward the blue end
of the spectrum are sedative in their action.
It is also well known that positive electricity is
sedative in its action.
There are many other reactions whereby we can prove
that colors give off polar energy.
A very remarkable one is that ruby light dissipates
the effect of the magnetic meridian upon a healthy
energy from the south-seeking or negative pole of magnet, if
a certain technique is employed, will do likewise; while the
positive end of the bar magnet will have no such effect.
The fact that the energy from the magnetic meridian
as it passes over the earth is positive in character seems
to give us a reason for this very remarkable phenomenon.
Energy that can be dissipated by the negative end of
a bar magnet can also be dissipated by radiant dark-room
Method Using Dyed Silk and Linen Screens, page 3
Energy that can be dissipated by the positive end of
a bar magnet can also be dissipated by radiant cyan-blue
Energy that can be dissipated by both poles of a bar
magnet can also be dissipated by radiant neutral-violet
The fact that some energies are complex seems to be
the logical reason why various colors which will dissipate
various complex energies are made by the combination of 2 or
Radiant Colors Designate the Disease
For ascertaining the character of the toxemia I use
The color that enables one to elicit the magnetic
meridian vagal reflex indicates the nature of the disease.
A normal magnetic meridian vagal-reflex signifies
that the vagal reflex can be obtained by means of the
magnetic meridian without any radiant color.
An abnormal magnetic meridian vagal reflex signifies
that no magnetic meridian vagal reflex can be elicited
without some radiant color.
The first color I used for Bio-Dynamo-Chromatic
diagnosis was the ruby used for my photo- graphic darkroom.
Later I experimented with many other materials,
finally investigating silks and linens.
The greatest obstacle was to obtain the true colors,
but I was able to interest some of the largest dye masters
It was very difficult to get the correct blue.
But after a long series of experiments I found that
by passing the light through two different fabrics of
different shades I was able to get the blue complementary to
the ruby, which is non-actinic.
The best color for non-actinic ruby or non-actinic
orange was obtained in linen.
The next problem was the mounting of these silks and
devised a screen with 4 apertures so arranged that the
radiant colors can be mixed; that is, one aperture is screen
with silk or linen of one color and another with another
an effect is obtained similar to that produced by various
tints and hues. These
were mounted between two sheets of pressboard glued
The screens are so made that each one will give the
amount of radiant color required for its particular use when
it is a definite distance in front of a reflected light from
a 60-watt tungsten lamp.
Method Using Dyed Silk and Linen Screens, page 4
the names of colors are entirely arbitrary, one dyer calling
a certain color by one name and another calling it something
else, I designate the screens by letters and numbers,
indicating the color and the amount of its dilution with
A-4 indicates that the four apertures are of the A
color. A-3 means
that 3 of the apertures are of the A color and one of the
white. A-2 means
that 2 are of the A color and 2 are white.
A-1 means that one is of the A color and 3 are white.
It is by these attenuated colors that I differentiate
the various stages or activity of the disease being
is particularly useful in tuberculosis and cancer, though
not of any special value in any other toxemias except in
specific urethritis, where it differentiates between an
acute and a chronic condition.
The diluted colors also enable one to watch the
improvement from the therapeutic measures.
The following list of screens which are the most
advisable to use in the beginning shows what the colors are
- combining non-actinic orange and non-actinic ruby will
diagnose cancer and tuberculosis.
– non-actinic orange used for differentiating cancer from
will differentiate cancer or sarcoma but not tuberculosis.
– the correct blue complementary to A of the proper
radiation for diagnosing syphilis, auto-intoxication and
– the correct neutral-violet radiation for diagnosing
– the correct green radiation for diagnosing liver
– a radiation of combined colors to differentiate malaria
– radiations from a combination of colors to diagnose
influenza or grippe.
– a radiation of magenta which diagnoses deep-seated
neurotic conditions, paranoia, etc.
How to Find the Activity of the Disease
As previously mentioned the tint or attenuation of
the diagnosing screen will show the severity of the disease.
For example, if a patient has an A magnetic meridian
vagal-reflex we do not positively know whether it is
tuberculosis or cancer.
If, however, there is no reflex to the B screen, we
know that the case is tuberculosis.
We then use the A-4 screen and that will give the
reflex about the same as the A-screen.
We then try the A-3 screen and if that elicits the
reflex we know the relation between the toxemia and the
patient’s resistance is about evenly balanced and that
there is a good fighting chance for recovery.
But if the patient has a reflex from the A-4 screen
but not the A-3, I consider the prognosis very doubtful.
If the patient has an A-2 magnetic meridian vagal
reflex, it is a fairly incipient case.
If the patient has an A-1 reflex, it is a very
incipient case and with proper treatment the patient should
be well in a few months.
Method Using Dyed Silk and Linen Screens, page 5
If the patient has a B-screen reflex, the attenuated
A-screen will designate the severity of the cancerous
condition the same as if it were tuberculosis.
If the person has a D-2 reflex, it indicates a
chronic gonorrheal condition or that the resistance of the
patient is far in advance of the toxemia.
Explanation of the Action of the Attenuated Screens
The radiation from the A-4 chromatic screen is an
intense rate and mode of motion of its peculiar kind, and it
will interfere with an equally intense rate and mode of
motion of an opposite kind.
If this radiant color of the A-4 chromatic screen is
attenuated, that is, diluted with white, the intensity of
the particular radiation of the A-4 screen is lessened.
The more this particular color is diluted, the less
will be its peculiar radiating power, and therefore the
energy that it will dissipate or neutralize must
consequently be just so much attenuated or weakened.
Any screen that elicits the magnetic meridian vagal
reflex in a patient should be used intermittently for
treating that patient. Remember
that the intermittent light treatment using the screen that
elicits the magnetic meridian vagal reflex is the
Bio-Dynamo-Chrome treatment or therapy.
The darker the room is in which this treatment is
carried on, the greater the effect of the intermittent
The crescent was employed by the ancients as an
emblem of augmentation of progress: the new moon grows.
I have adopted the crescent as a symbol of one series
of chromatic screens developed primarily for augmenting the
magnetic meridian sympathetic-vagal reflex by checking or
neutralizing complications of diseases.
My method of arriving at the proper radiation has
been previously explained.
I found that a person suffering with tuberculosis
often had also auto-intoxication or syphilis or some other
concomitant disease. For
instance, I would be able to elicit an A magnetic meridian
vagal reflex but not as pronounced as I liked.
Then by employing many colors at one time I
discovered a mixed radiation that would greatly augment the
A reflex in the patient.
A great number of these combined colors have been made up into the Crescent screens, four of which are described:
Primary of plus colors.
Tonsillitis. Tuberculosis with auto-intoxication,
primarily from the biliary tract.
Secondary or minus color.
Auto-intoxication with anemia.

Primary of plus colors combined.
Tuberculosis with some forms of auto-intoxication.
Secondary or minus colors combined.
Anemia with auto-intoxication.
Portal and urinary tracts affected.
Radiant Colors – Their General Use
Radiant “red” as well as other colors of the
negative end of the chromatic curve are indicated in
conditions that have a particular tendency to produce anemia
or reduce the hemoglobin index, for example, tuberculosis.
Radiant “blue” as well as other colors toward the
positive end of the chromatic curve are indicated in
conditions that have a selective action upon the spleen and
spinal cord, for example, syphilis.
Radiant “violet” at the neutral part of the
chromatic curve is indicated in conditions having a
selective action upon the hepatic system, for example,
Radiant “green” which is toward the positive end
of the chromatic curve, is indicated in conditions having a
selective action upon the hepatic system, for example,
The brilliant colors such as “orange”,
“yellow” and “magenta” are indicated in conditions
having a selective action upon the nervous system, for
example, neuroses and mental derangements.
The combination of radiant “green” and radiant
“blue” is indicated in conditions having a selective
action upon both the liver and spleen, for example, malaria.
Radiant “red” and “green” combined have a
selective action upon conditions producing a profound
toxemia out of all proportion to the symptoms, for example,
influenza and tonsillitis.
I could go on indefinitely enumerating many different
combinations of colors which have selective actions upon the
digestive tract, respiratory tract, etc.
When one becomes accustomed to the radiant colors
used in Bio-Dynamo-Chromatic work they will feel or sense
the color or combinations of colors that are indicated in
treating the various conditions that come under their
This classification is not empirical but on the
contrary as made after the clinical findings had been
had no idea of this classification until I began to tabulate
the various conditions and the indicated chromatic screen
used for them.
