Attacked by covid 19, viruses bacteria with their resonant frequency (or lower harmonics) but with much greater positive intensity they are destroyed! Dr. Royal Raymond Rife was a brilliant scientist and a hero in our time. He developed many a scientific break-through in both the field of microscopy as well as medicine. These were well documented in his time by various newspapers including the LA Times and San Diego Tribune.In the early 1930's Royal Raymond Rife invented the first, and currently still the most powerful universal microscope which had a magnification of 60,000 diameters and a resolution of 31,000 diameters. Dr. Rife was the first person to see living viruses since even the most powerful electron microscopes today kill the organism being observed. In his quest to build this microscope he developed a method of identifying different organisms and their MOR's or Mortal Oscillatory Rates. This meant that each organism had a signature frequency at which it vibrated or resonated .The university was so appreciative of the quality of his work that during 1914 they awarded him an honorary Doctor of Parasitology degree Heidelberg University where he worked directly with Carl Zeiss, Hans Luckel and other scientists.Royal Raymond Rife was the inventor of the Universal Microscope whicRoh he presented to the world in 1933.Besides being the most powerful optical microscope ever made up to that time, it was also the most versatile.The Universal used all types of illumination: polarized, monochromatic or white light, dark field, slit ultra and infra-red. It could be used for all manner of microscopical work, including petrological work or for crystallography and photomicrography. According to a report submitted to the Journal of the Franklin Institute it had a magnification of 60,000x, and a resolution of 31,000x. The ocular of this instrument was binocular, but it also had a detachable segment lower in the body for monocular observation at 1800x (x=power) magnification.One of the most attractive features of this microscope is that, in contrast to the Electron Microscope, the Universal Microscope does not kill the specimens under observation and affords observation of natural living. Finally during 1934, a group of physicians led by Dr. Milbank Johnson of Pasadena, California, in an experiment that was sponsored by the University of California brought sixteen terminally ill patients from a hospital in San Diego and placed then in apartments on the Scripps estate at La Jolla, California where they were treated by being subjected to the frequencies recommended by Dr. Royal Rife for a period of ninety days. Fourteen of the patients were declared free of any cancer at that time. The other two required an additional month of treatment to be completely cured. Today's Rife instruments use harmonics of the frequencies It uses a 2-frequency generator, one for viruses and the other for bacteria that are their hosts. Modulates the signal with a carrier frequency of 2.4 megahertz to 4.6 megahertz with an amplifier of 50 watts sound frequency. The procedure takes 3 min once every 3 days to be able to remove toxins from the body.He used a defective X-ray lamp that fills in with light gas (helium) with settings becoming harmless to humans, it kills viruses 13 km away despite the metal container in 1939, the Royal Rife received an invitation to make a formal statement with apparatus and films in Germany, France and the Royal Medical Society of England (where the only microscope is), which confirmed its findings In her 1995 book "The Cure for all diseases" by Hulda Clark. uses a synchrometer to detect the frequencies of viruses, parasites and heavy metals in the body of patients . Years later in 1944. 02,both the “Journal of the Franklin Institute for Scientific and Mechanical arts” and “The Smitsonian “Featured the Rife Universal Microscope alongside the newly created electronen microscope in articles on emerging technology inoptics.
