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 negative color.

Chromatic Curve

Polarity 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 infinity.


    This scheme of colors is unlike many others, but it carries out the fundamental principle of the polarity of colors.


General Observations


    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 electricity.  They 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 stimulating.


    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 individual.  Magnetic 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 ruby light.

A 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 light.


    Energy that can be dissipated by both poles of a bar magnet can also be dissipated by radiant neutral-violet light.


    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 more colors.


Radiant Colors Designate the Disease


    For ascertaining the character of the toxemia I use radiant colors.


    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.


Colored Screens


   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 in the United States and got out silks with the true dyes I needed.  These I tested with a special photospectometer to see that the colors were correct. 


    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 linens.  I 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 color.  Thereby an effect is obtained similar to that produced by various tints and hues.  These were mounted between two sheets of pressboard glued together.


        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.

 As 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 white.


    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 diagnosed.  This 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 used for:


A - combining non-actinic orange and non-actinic ruby will diagnose cancer and tuberculosis.


B – non-actinic orange used for differentiating cancer from tuberculosis.  It will differentiate cancer or sarcoma but not tuberculosis. 


C – the correct blue complementary to A of the proper radiation for diagnosing syphilis, auto-intoxication and malaria.


D – the correct neutral-violet radiation for diagnosing specific urethritis.


E – the correct green radiation for diagnosing liver intoxications, jaundice.


F – a radiation of combined colors to differentiate malaria from syphilis.


G – radiations from a combination of colors to diagnose influenza or grippe.


H – 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.


A 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 color.


Checking Complications


    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:


1)  Primary of plus colors.  Tonsillitis. Tuberculosis with auto-intoxication, primarily from the biliary tract.


2)  Secondary or minus color.  Auto-intoxication with anemia.

A Method Using Dyed Silk and Linen Screens, page 6


3)  Primary of plus colors combined.  Tuberculosis with some forms of auto-intoxication.


4)  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, gonorrhea.       


    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, jaundice.


    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 observation.


    This classification is not empirical but on the contrary as made after the clinical findings had been formulated.  I had no idea of this classification until I began to tabulate the various conditions and the indicated chromatic screen used for them.
