Prof. E. L. Scharf's Negative Gravity
This article was kindly shared by Evert in Holland, who also researches Keely and antigrav. It brought up Joseph Hiddink where I learned he had passed on. A shame, we had several fascinating emails including where he proved it was he who had invented the Hurwich shielding effect stolen by Sid Hurwich. Such a brilliant inventor, he should have had research complexes working on all his discoveries and inventions but investors are too stupid to see it. - JWD
The Washington Times (no relation to the current paper of that name) published on April 3, 1903 (p. 40 & 41) an illustrated collection of articles about Prof. Emil L. Scharf, a lecturer in modern languages with an interest in electrical experiments, who found that by positively charging his body with an electrical appliance of his own secret design he could reduce his weight. He had discovered anti-gravity! The common error, only electrical lift. - JWD
His theory was simple: like charges repel; the earth is positively charged; hence, providing sufficient positive charge (or "Scharf current") to an object or person would cause them to levitate. As a language professor, he came to this theory while studying classic works about the levitating powers of fakirs and, naturally, Jesus' ascent into Heaven. Sure enough, it worked, at least until he started to feel faint and had to stop at a mere seven-pound weight reduction. At the time of the article, he had already secured funding for additional experiments to push the technology beyond weight loss to much grander purposes, some of which are mentioned above.
Professor Scharf's postulates seem to be based upon sound deductive and experimental reasoning in that he begins with the simplest fundamental tests in electricity, namely, electric attraction and repulsion. If two pieces of paper or other bodies are equally charged with the same kind of electricity, say of the positive sign, they will instantly repel each other, regardless of gravitational force. This can be easily tried by heating a couple of strips of newspaper, to expel the moisture, and then in a dry room rub them briskly with the finger tips, when they will fly apart. But this is not all that occurs; for wherever a charge of positive electricity is generated there will be in the immediate neighborhood an equal charge of negative electricity.
In Professor Scharf's description of his experiments in electrically elevating the body against the contending force of gravity he does not say how or by what means this negative charge is absorbed or conducted away whilst the earth and its complementary subject are positively charged; but with a fundamental principle of such gigantic import as the one he is wrestling with it is but natural that he should desire more time to verify his deductions. That the earth is charged with electricity there can be no doubt, though it is not always charged to the positive sign. This is the reason that telegraphers must search sometimes for what is called a good ground; but there are places where the earth is constantly positive and in such a place would the anti-gravitation test best succeed. Again such a condition might be produced artificially.
The writer has often noted, when working with X-ray coils of high potential, say of eighty or one hundred thousand volts, that if he accidentally touched on of the terminals a peculiar lifting sensation quite like that described by Professor Scharf always resulted. This may or may not have been due to the repelling force exerted between his own body and the earth being charged with positive electricity; but it is a significant fact, nevertheless. According to the laws of electrostatics, which state that electric charges of like signs repel each other and electric charges of opposite signs attract each other, it is reasonable to believe that if the earth and the subject were both negatively electrified the same result of repulsion would be manifested.
The earth being charged with positive electricity, proves that if a man could charge himself with the same sort of electricity he would be repelled from the earth's surface. "Like repels like," and opposites attract each other. It is a rule that is as old as the hills. You will remember the elementary experiment with the two cork balls suspended with silk cords. You rub one with resin inducing a positive charge, the other with glass, charging it negatively. Then you approximate the balls, and they fly together. Now you rub with glass the ball you had rubbed with resin, and on approximating them you find that they spring apart from each other.
What does this prove? Both the automatic repellance of similarly charged electrical bodies and the fact that it is possible to change the electrical charge of a given body. By charging my body with the same positive force that the earth contains I have actually reduced the weight of my body seven pounds, and only stopped the experiment there because I began to feel a fainting sensation about the heart that made me think perhaps there might be danger in the experiment. I had insulated a pair of the finest scales by placing them upon glass.
Close to the scales I placed my electrical appliance, the construction of which I will, of course, not divulge, beyond saying that it employs wires which run from beneath the surface of the earth, connect with my body, and back to the earth again. Stepping on the platform of the delicately adjusted weighing machine, I noted with the greatest care the succeeding registration. I was growing lighter! One, two, three pounds was gone from my normal weight of a moment before. Prudence or timorousness dictated a halt, but the exhilaration of hope, the impelling desire to put my discovery to a positive test, bade me continue.
The sensitive register showed a continual diminution of my weight. Four—five—six—yes, even seven pounds lighter than when I first took the record. Accompanying this loss of weight were strange sensations, such as never in all my life had I experienced. A sense as of casting off physical moorings crept over me. Lightness gradually pervaded my body, and as I turned on the current I felt as if I were actually rising; yes, almost flying. It was a peculiar feeling about my heart which decided me to suspend the experiments, until I can test my plan on dummies and the lower animals, to make sure there is no attendant danger, or, if there is such danger, to obviate it.
For years the idea of such a force opposed to gravity had buzzed in my brain. My attention was first called to it while I was connected with the Catholic University. The reading of the modern and classic Hindoo and Persian works made me take notice of the claim, seemingly substantiated, that seers of these two races were able by prostrating themselves upon the ground, and by other mystic rites which probably had nothing to do with the natural phenomena, to raise their bodies into the air. As soon as I stepped from the scales after my experiment of charging my body with positive force and reducing my weight seven pounds, the energy employed in the experiment departed to the earth, and a moment after, stepping upon the scales, I found that my weight was normal again.

'The Evolution of Matter' and 'The Evolution of Forces' on CD
Years ago, I had been told by several people, that the US government frequently removes books they deem dangerous or 'sensitive' from libraries. Some are replaced with sections removed or rewritten so as to 'contain' information that should not be available to the public despite the authors intent. A key example was during the Manhattan Project when the US was trying to finalize research into atomic bombs. They removed any books that dealt with the subject and two of them were by Dr. Gustave Le Bon since they dealt with both energy and matter including radioactivity. I had been looking for these two books for many years and fortunately stumbled across two copies for which I paid about $40.00 each. I couldn't put down the books once I started reading them. Such a wealth of original discoveries, many not known or remembered today. / Page 88 - Without the ether there could be neither gravity, nor light, nor electricity, nor heat, nor anything, in a word, of which we have knowledge. The universe would be silent and dead, or would reveal itself in a form which we cannot even foresee. If one could construct a glass chamber from which the ether were to be entirely eliminated, heat and light could not pass through it. It would be absolutely dark, and probably gravitation would no longer act on the bodies within it. They would then have lost their weight. / Page 96-97 - A material vortex may be formed by any fluid, liquid or gaseous, turning round an axis, and by the fact of its rotation it describes spirals. The study of these vortices has been the object of important researches by different scholars, notably by Bjerkness and Weyher. They have shown that by them can be produced all the attractions and repulsions recognized in electricity, the deviations of the magnetic needle by currents, etc. These vortices are produced by the rapid rotation of a central rod furnished with pallets, or, more simply, of a sphere. Round this sphere gaseous currents are established, dissymetrical with regard to its equatorial plane, and the result is the attraction or repulsion of bodies brought near to it, according to the position given to them. It is even possible, as Weyher has proved, to compel these bodies to turn round the sphere as do the satellites of a planet without touching it. / Page 149 - "The problem of sending a pencil of parallel Hertzian waves to a distance possesses more than a theoretical interest. It is allowable to say that its solution would change the course of our civilization by rendering war impossible. The first physicist who realizes this discovery will be able to avail himself of the presence of an enemy's ironclads gathered together in a harbour to blow them up in a few minutes, from a distance of several kilometres, simply by directing on them a sheaf of electric radiations. On reaching the metal wires with which these vessels are nowadays honeycombed, this will excite an atmosphere of sparks which will at once explode the shells and torpedoes stored in their holds. With the same reflector, giving a pencil of parallel radiations, it would not be much more difficult to cause the explosion of the stores of powder and shells contained in a fortress, or in the artillery sparks of an army corps, and finally the metal cartridges of the soldiers. Science, which at first rendered wars so deadly, would then at length have rendered them impossible, and the relations between nations would have to be established on new bases."
