Building a Linear Etheric Translator is a great way to begin exploring subtle energy technology. This simple device acts as a sort of lens, to collect and concentrate subtle energy. It can be used to develop and practice extended sensory perception, or in combination with similar devices to create complex etheric machines. Best of all, the translator is easily constructed from common materials.

Of great significance is the fact that etheric translators are self-powered; no battery or external power source is required. They operate by condensing unstructured energy from local space and emitting a focused, linear flow.

Attempts to detect subtle energy with conventional electronic instruments invariably fail. This is because subtle energy is a natural, living force, and electronic measurements can’t be made directly. But that doesn’t mean it’s not real. After all, the existence of microbes was unknown for many thousands of years before the microscope was invented.

Subtle energy is easily sensed by living systems, however, and with practice most people can feel it as touches their skin. Practicing sensory experiments with etheric translators will naturally lead to enhanced energetic awareness. It is an effective way to “remove the blinders” that we take upon ourselves to reflect the norms of society.

The etheric translator can be constructed in about 30 minutes. The following materials are required:

  • A length of small diameter metal tubing. Copper or brass work well and are relatively easy to cut. Tubing sizes less than 8 mm diameter (or 5/16 inches) are more convenient. Soft coiled tubing can be used if you carefully straighten it by hand.
  • A tubing cutter for making clean, precise cuts. This is a hand-held tool with a circular blade and knob that can be adjusted for different sizes of tubing (see photo.)
  • Cotton cord such as clothesline or shoe laces.
  • Hot glue gun. This is optional, but it makes winding easier.
  • Scissors, metric ruler, electrical tape.

Terminology and Justification
Although scientists and philosophers have written about subtle energy for thousands of years, a consistent terminology is lacking in modern scientific literature. For our purposes, we will consider the term ether to be synonymous with subtle energy and orgone energy. Based on previous studies (many of which are described on, we postulate the following:

  • Ether is invisible and ominipresent
  • Ether penetrates and interacts with matter as described by Steiner and Wachsmuth
  • Multiple grades of ether exist in the natural environment
  • One grade of ether can be transformed into another, by a quasi-physical process analagous to phase change.
  • In the unbound condition, ether exhibits reverse gradiant potential, which means that ether tends to flow from a region of low potential to a region of high potential. This is also known as negentropy, the tendency to spontaneously create more complex systems.

That last point, about negentropy, is promptly dismissed by anyone who has been taught the so-called “Laws” of Thermodynamics. Yet evidence of negentropy may be found everywhere, simply by observing the growth of living systems. In living systems, minerals and particles self-organize into complex structures.

One may rightfully ask, what evidence supports the assertions presented here? One type of evidence is direct observation. Several individuals have studied etheric translators using clairvoyant sight and other forms of extended sensory perception. Their observations are consistent with each other, and with other sources consulted by the author.

Another type of evidence is scientific data collected by Trevor James Constable. These include photos, videos, and radar images generated during two decades of atmospheric experiments. But let’s be clear: The purpose of this article is not to prove anything. Rather, it describes a process by which you can perform your own experiments and make up your own mind.

Interested readers are encouraged to accept these concepts on a provisional basis, to be verified as soon as possible through meditation and direct experience. For some, confirmation will come literally by their own hands. Others may criticize these ideas with a great sense of certainty. Those who are determined to disbelieve are encourged to move on and enjoy other pages less challenging.

How it Works
Etheric translators represent the practical application of two important principles:

First, was the discovery by Wilhelm Reich, that a directional flow of ether could be induced by layering metallic and organic materials. (Later research has shown that dialectric materials have a similar effect as organic materials.) Reich also discovered the means to influence etheric activity in the atmosphere, remotely, using mechanical devices at ground level.

Second, was the discovery by Trevor James Constable that resonant, geometric structures accelerate ether flow. The book Loom of the Future, published in 1995, presents a history of his research into etheric weather engineering. The etheric devices that he developed were improved versions of Reich’s original cloudbuster design. Constable’s research was guided by an understanding of ether dynamics according to Austrian philospher Rudolf Steiner. His book documents the steady evolution of his designs, along with conclusive evidence of local weather conditions engineered by etheric devices.

The breakthrough to resonant etheric translators was revealed one year later, in the journal Borderlands (Second Quarter 1996). The new translator was smaller and lighter, yet more powerful than all previous designs. The key to operation of the Bull Translator is a central resonant cavity. The resonant cavity acts like an antenna and amplifier, tuned to certain environmental factors which result in a dramatic acceleration of the ether.

The Etheric Translator we are building here is derived from Constable’s design, miniaturized and adapted for personal demonstration. The organic cotton layer absorbs ether from surrounding space. The metal layer conducts it into the central cavity, where it is excited by resonance and emitted from both ends. Many variations on this basic design are possible, and will be covered in future articles.

Before proceeding any further, please consider the following:

  • The etheric translator is a research tool, and should be handled thoughtfully and with respect.
  • Absolutely no medical claims are made for this device.
  • By delving into etheric technology, you are entering a realm with spiritual implications. Proceed only with the highest and purest intention.

Construction Details

Step 1
Use a metric ruler to measure the inside diameter of the tubing. It is important to get an accurate read, so use a good light and a magnifier if necessary. Record the diameter in units as small as 0.5 millimeters (mm). For example, a roll of soft copper tubing from the hardware store, intended for refrigeration applications, has an inside diameter of 5.0 mm.

Step 2
Once you have measured the inside diameter, multiply that number by 45 to compute the desired length. The ratio (45:1) works very well in this type of device, although there is no special theory or formula to explain it. Use a tubing cutter to trim the tubing to the exact length needed. Adjust the knob so that the tool fits snugly on the tubing and position the blade. Tighten the knob slightly on each revolution of the tool to complete the cut.

Step 3
Plug in the hot glue gun. We’ll use this to hold the cotton cord in position. When the glue is hot, lay down a thin bead of glue for about 2 cm, starting at one end. Press about 1 cm of the cotton cord into the glue starting at the end, and hold it in place with your thumb. Then make a sharp right turn with the cord and begin making a series of tight turns around the tubing. As you go, lay down a bead of hot glue to hold the cord in place. When you reach the other end, turn the cord again and finish with the cord running straight off the end.

Step 4
The glue hardens quickly, so you’ll know in a very short time if the winding will stay in place. If not, touch the hot tip to the glue to soften it and then reposition the cord. You can also start over by peeling away the hardened glue. With the winding in place, put a few turns of electrical tape at each end to make it permanent. Try not to stretch the tape as you apply it to avoid a sticky edge later. With the tape in place, trim the extra cord so that it ends flush with the tubing.

That’s it! You now have a functional device. Its purpose is to demonstrate etheric force, so let’s give it a try.

The First Experiment
This works best if you’re seated, relaxed and breathing normally. Rub your palms together for a moment and then spread them apart about 1-2 inches. Try to imagine what the space between your hands feels like. Compress that space a little and see if the sensation changes. Move your hands as if space is a soft round sponge. The point of this exercise is to sensitize your hands.

Next, pick up the translator, and hold it like a pencil. Bring one end close to your other palm, about 2-4 inches away. Wait a moment, and see if the sensation in your palm changes. Move the translator ever so slightly, and try to imagine what space feels like, on the outside your skin.

Some people report a curious senstation, as if the air has become thick and heavy. Others describe it as a slight cool breeze. These are the effects of an ether stream impacting your own energy field. Shake it off after a few seconds, and sense the difference. There you have it: your first experience with an etheric translator.
