It’s important to note that experimental work with electro-medicine had been done for years, even centuries. Rife was building on what had come before. In fact, the devices he began to work with were patented in the 1890’s.
Dr. Royal Raymond Rife observed entire life cycles of the microbes, and he gave credence to a view still contested today: the issue of polymorphism. This refers to the ability of the microbe to change size and shape sufficient to transcend a particular category of organism.
While observing these microbes, he noticed that each reflected a tint that was unique to its type. Recognizing that color equates to frequency, he theorized that if he could identify which frequencies were effective for a given organism he could “de-vitalize” it, rendering it harmless in the body. Thus, Rife’s “frequency theory” was born. read more
From 1950, Rife had a close associate by the name of John Crane. Crane built instruments for Rife and was partnered with him until his death. After which, Crane attempted in earnest to build modern Rife instruments and to debunk some of the wild speculation about the circumstances of Rife’s demise.
Crane produced the first full-function, transistorized frequency instruments, and the first to be digitally controlled. But Crane did not perform adequate tests. read more
By the time John Wright was inducted into this story, the Rife technique was at an all time low. John Crane had been arrested for mail fraud. Since paranoia was common among promoters, and transactions were typically conducted in secret by operatives in parking lots from the trunk of a car, John Wright did not have access to the people who used the machines he made. There was reason to fear. Fear that users would not be successful without any customer support of any kind.
