This page is dedicated to the crystal research work of Dr. Marcel Vogel
In the early 1980's I was honored to have as a dear friend and work with the late Dr. Marcel Vogel who founded Psychic Research Inc. My name is Dan Willis.
Although my background is in traditionally taught electronics and communications, I have always felt that the laws that govern these sciences have a profound basis that goes far beyond that which scientists can presently measure. An unusual experience in my life that triggered my interest in sacred geometry is what lead me into seeking out the one person on the planet that was scientifically linking consciousness with geometrical forms as exemplified in crystals, Dr. Marcel Vogel. In 1983 he asked me to join him as a research associate.
Marcel had a genius of an inquisitive mind, that once he discovered for himself that the energies of mind could effect matter, he then went into serious scientific research. Just a few of the fundamental (re)discoveries regarding the thought energies of mind briefly were ...
In the 1970’s Marcel did pioneering work in man-plant communication experiments. This led him to the study of quartz crystals and the creation of a faceted crystal. Marcel’s research into the therapeutic application of quartz crystals led him to the investigation of the relationship between crystals and water. He discovered that he could structure water by spinning it around a tuned crystal, altering many of the characteristics of the water and converting it into an information storage system.

In 1969 Marcel Vogel gave a course in creativity for engineers at IBM. It was at this time that he read an article in Argosy magazine entitled “Do Plants Have Emotions?” about the work of polygraph expert Cleve Backster into the responsiveness of plants to human interaction. Despite initial rejection of the concept of human-plant communication, he decided to explore these strange claims.
He was able to duplicate the Backster effect of using plants as transducers for bio-energetic fields that the human mind releases, demonstrating that plants respond to thought. He used split leaf philodendrons connected to a Wheatstone Bridge that would compare a known resistance to an unknown resistance. He learned that when he released his breath slowly there was virtually no response from the plant. When he pulsed his breath through the nostrils, as he held a thought in mind, the plant would respond dramatically. It was also found that these fields, linked to the action of breath and thought, do not have a significant time domain to them. The responsiveness of the plants to thought was also the same whether eight inches away, eight feet, or eight thousand miles, as he proved from Prague, Czechoslovakia to his laboratory in San Jose where he was able to affect the plant hooked up to the recorder! Based on the results of the experiments the inverse square law does not apply to thought. Marcel said that squiggle on the script chart recorder changed his life. This was the beginning of Marcel’s transformation from being a purely rational scientist to becoming a mystical scientist.
Basically it was found that plants respond more to the thought of being cut, burned, or torn than to the actual act. He discovered that if he tore a leaf from one plant a second plant would respond, but only if he was paying attention to it. The plants seemed to be mirroring his own mental responses. He concluded that the plants were acting like batteries, storing the energy of his thoughts and intentions. He said of these experiments: “I learned that there is energy connected with thought. Thought can be pulsed and the energy connected with it becomes coherent and has a laser-like power.”
This is one reason why certain scientific investigations in the area of subtle energies cannot be readily replicated. It is not always a matter of scientific protocol, but a matter of relationship. Unfortunately many scientists would consider this to be some kind of inessential and perhaps bothersome epiphenomena. Although such individuals are scientists, to Marcel, they were technicians attempting to prove what they already thought was true. The true scientist is one who attempts to discover with childlike curiosity. Too often we, all of us, only want to confirm what we already believe.
in 1974, he awoke from a dream with a pattern in his mind’s eye: the Tree of Life as shown in the Kabbalistic teachings. This was a teaching and a pattern with which Marcel was unfamiliar. At the time he saw only the pattern of a rectangle with a triangle at each termination.
For an entire year he spent most of his lunch hours at the IBM glass shop attempting to facet raw quartz into this configuration. As he found out more about the geometry of the Tree of Life he was able to grind the quartz with greater specificity into the shape suggested by his vision.
Various other shapes were also tried: single terminated, double terminated, four-sided, six-sided, six-sided with four-sided terminations, eight-sided with four-sided terminations and so on. From continual experimentation came the first fundamental instrument for storing, amplifying, transferring and cohering the energies of the bodymind of an individual: a four sided quartz crystal with pyramidal terminations. One tip was more acute than the other. The more acute termination is called the “firing tip” as this is the end of the crystal from which the coherent field is emitted. The faceted crystal was a three dimensional representation of the Tree of Life.
The Tree of Life of the Kabbala, an ancient symbol of energetic flow from the universal to the personal that came to Marcel in a dream as a form to cut the crystal to transduce energy and focus thought. The upper triangle (female end) represents the Universal, which in the Tree of Life is what all is created from. The lower triangle represents the physical or personal manifestation which is where the focused energies of the individual are cohered and focused. (male end). The crystal is cut along the "C" or growth axis, the Universal or female end he cut to an angle of 52 degrees, the angle in which occurs naturally in quartz and exhibits the mathematical ratio of Phi (1.618) same as the Great Pyramid.
The crystal, like the Tree of Life of the Kabala, with the Universal or female at one end (at the top) attuned to the universal matrix we exist in and male or Personal angle shown at the bottom. The crystal is cut to resonate radionically to the rate of water which is 454.
"The crystal is a neutral object whose inner structure exhibits a state of perfection and balance. When it is cut to the proper form and when the human mind enters into relationship with its structural perfection, the crystal emits a vibration which extends and amplifies the power of the user's mind. Like a laser, it radiates energy in a coherent, highly concentrated form, and this energy may be transmitted into objects or people at will.” - Marcel
The crystal works much the same way that a laser does: It takes scattered rays of energy and makes the energy field so coherent and unidirectional that a tremendous force is generated - one that is much stronger than if the energies were allowed to be emitted without having come into coherence.
The energetic healer has to deal with the emanations of his/her hands or bioenergy field, which do not have the same levels of coherence one can obtain by using a crystal as a focusing tool. The crystal, when used with Love, makes the energies of mind coherent. It brings these energies into a pattern exactly fitting the life force energies of the person seeking to be healed, then amplifies them for healing.
The structural change in cutting quartz into the proper shape is to tune it to be a coherent information transfer device. The form geometry of such a crystal creates a coherent field of energy that can act as a carrier wave of information, whereas raw quartz does not. Why is this important?
According to Marcel:
“This ‘carrier wave’ must have a coherency to it so as not to mingle with the radiations emitted from the target material but act now as the differentiating transport vehicle. The quartz crystal cut in the dipyramidal shape provides such an instrument. ”
In the case of offering healing service to another individual, radiations emitted from the target material refers to the difficulty or distress experienced by the client. The coherent light emitted from the Vogel tuned crystal is able to penetrate the often disparate radiant fields within and around a distressed individual. An incoherent energy is often dissipated if not completely absorbed by the chaotic field generated by the distress. Beyond this the most profound effect of the faceted crystal has to do with its relationship and resonance to water. Because more than 70% of the physical body is water, the Vogel tuned crystal, with its resonance with water, is the perfect delivery mechanism for the introduction of subtle energies to an individual. Marcel also felt that the various subtle energy bodies described in metaphysical literature are gradations of a field that is anchored to the physical body via the water molecule.
During the initial years of his work with crystals, Marcel developed a protocol for removing unwanted vibrations or thought forms from an individual in distress. He found that the crystal could act almost as an energetic scalpel in what amounted to an energetic or etheric surgery. Over the years he developed various methods for proximate, remote, and self healing using the crystals.
is a quantum converter that is able to transmit energy in a form that
has discreet biological effects. This is most likely a resonant effect.
The human body, on an energetic level, is an array of oscillating points
that are layered and have a definite symmetry and structure. This crystallinity
is apparent on both a subtle energetic or quantum level as well as the
macro level. The bones, tissues, cells, and fluids of the body have a
definite crystallinity about them. The structure of the fluids, cells,
and tissues of the body tends to become unstructured or incoherent when
dis-ease or distress is present. The physical body is comprised of liquid
crystal systems in the cell membranes, intercellular fluids, as well as
larger structures such as the fatty tissues, muscular and nervous systems,
lymph, blood, and so on. Through the use of an appropriately tuned crystal
to which these structures are responsive, balance and coherence can be
restored by delivering the necessary “information” or energetic
obtain some of the first crystals to be used in this research work, so
that the quartz could be cut in the above shape for experiments, I
drove from San Diego to the mines in Arkansas and carefully hand selected
the first large batch of quartz crystals for Marcel. These were cut and
faceted for approximately two dozen medical doctors in the San Francisco
Bay area. This group of doctors he used as an experimental base for research
for the application of his technique of releasing discordant energy patterns
in patients bodies that manifested as physical aliments. These ailments
were treated through the intervention of focused thought with breath amplified
by utilizing these quartz crystals.
Marcel was delighted with the quality of the quartz delivered and sent me a special letter of appreciation saying that I had done "a great service for the good of mankind" and for the beginning research for the lab. It was an honor to assist him in this pioneering work.
Using a lapidary setup at his home before the PRI lab was created, Marcel makes the first rough cuts as shown below, before polishing.
Shown here is the Omega-5 unit using a sample witness from an individual, the 9 dials are turned to find the resonant number of the witness sample and as they are turned, the surface tension of the stick pad changes and starts to stick when rubbed with the fingers as an indicator of resonance. Although a subjective type of instrument, the Omega 5 produced data that could be used to indicate how to proceed in the use of standard scientific measurement. Sometimes information isn’t discovered because one simply doesn’t know where to look. The Omega could give clues as to where to look.
I will always treasure the crystal that Marcel specifically cut and gave me as a gift. It was one of the very first crystals he cut from the crystals I delivered from the mines. I do not consider myself a healer or anything along those lines, although my family line seems to be filled with doctors and mystics. I am primarily interested in the science of the fundamental operating principles of these newfound sciences.
The day after I received this crystal from Marcel, I boarded a flight home and sitting next to me was a football player who just finished having surgery on his knee, which he was holding in pain. This appeared to be one of those situations where you are given a gift and then given the opportunity to use it. I introduced myself to the fellow and said, "look I am not a doctor, rather an experimental scientist," and that if he would like, I could utilize some rather unconventional techniques that could prove effective in relieving the pain in his knee. I used the techniques that Marcel taught me and when he got off the plane and met his parents, he pointed to me and said "That guy, he fixed my knee, and it doesn't hurt anymore". I was equally surprised as he was and grateful the techniques helped him. After that experience I used the crystal that Marcel gave me on over 200 individuals from broken fingers to tumors and experienced a success rate of 90%. I haven't used the crystal for many years now, except when a situation seems to present itself. Of course as the crystal was a gift, I never associated money with it as it was a tool to learn knowledge and that the techniques were effective and the fundamentals that were at work proved themselves to me. I was merely facilitating the individual's creative use of energy. After all, as Marcel would say, "Man is created in the image and likeness of God, therefore we create". And so it appears that we do recreate ourselves every instant with every thought and breath we take.
Since the early work with the original 4 sided healing crystal, Marcel went onto experimenting with greater number of sides which he believed affected the frequency of spin through the crystal as the number of sides increased so did the frequency of the spinning vortex within the crystal. I was told he believed the 8 sided to be his "work horse" and that the different number of sides related to the various energy bodies i.e. 4 = physical body 6 = emotional 8 = mental etc. Not any lapidarist can cut correctly a Vogel crystal as the angles are cut to the individual and then the way the light reflects within these facets is key to cohering thought within it's form. In 2009 I had Gil Riegler one of Marcel's original cutters cut from some exceptional Brazilian material which came from a US acquisition back in the 1940's, an 8 and 16 sided healing crystals. Gil is highly skilled in this art and does exceptional work as you can see below.
A padded case can protect the crystals from having their delicate points broken
In this case is the 4 sided that Marcel personally cut as a gift to me, along with an 8 and 16 sided
I took this photo of Marcel in his favorite chair at home in San Jose. Marcel could rotate the crystal to what he called "The Critical Rotational Angle", which is the angle in which the crystal becomes resonant with the body you are attuning to. Resonance is indicated by a sharp rise in energy sensed by the hand and which Marcel said he could measure on an electrostatic voltmeter.
The quartz crystal sphere which Marcel is holding is one I lent him for his experimentation. I still have the sphere and I believe what he said is true "Records are written in stone" for I can still sense his presence with the sphere. It appears in the photo that the camera's flash happened to catch the correct angle to light up the sphere as it did, but with Marcel, you never knew if it was only the light of the flash, as he was focusing energy into the sphere.
In 1984 Marcel retired from IBM and formed Psychic Research Incorporated and opened up the lab..
The Zeiss Ultraphot microscope that Marcel was given as a retirement present from IBM which he assembled himself at the lab. Marcel said that by changing filters of InfraRed and UltraViolet wavelengths that different structures operating at different frequencies would appear visible that would not normally to the human eye.
This Spectrophotometer I was able to acquire for the laboratory from a military electronics surplus in San Diego. This instrument was valuable in measuring the valence bands in water that were altered creating a new set of bands around 3000 to 4000 angstroms after thought was pulsed into the test water sample, showing the effect of the energy being altered in the structure of the water by thought.
It's interesting to note that radionic pioneer Hieronymus observed, in a Paris meat market display, that the freshly placed organs of different animal parts were causing the frost on the display glass above them to crystallize in specific patterns associated with the different parts of the body. Showing that the life force still emanating from the organ had a unique radiating pattern that was affecting the sensitive crystallization process of the water thus capturing these eminations.
Marcel felt that it was extremely profound and significant discovery that all of the crystallographic forms of the 7 major classes can be formed in water as it is going from water to ice crystals. Showing that the geometrical matrix of water, which has similarities of tetrahedral and hexagonal structuring of quartz, can universally conduct the spectrum of geometries manifested in nature. This discovery of water was made from drilling deep core samples of frozen water taken from the Antarctica.
Below is a 10 minute video clip of Marcel speaking on the structuring of water
Dr. Masaru Emoto, the author of "Messages in Water", was the first water researcher to discover a method for visually revealing the structure of water. Through high-speed photography, he has been able to capture how our thoughts affect the structure of water at the moment of freezing. Dr. Emoto and others have theorized that water has the ability to receive and transfer what the Japanese call “hado” (vital energy) Water is a network of hydrogen-bonded molecules. It can form numerous structures, depending on how individual molecules bond together. One of these structures is the hexagon - composed of six water molecules. Hexagonal water forms an organized crystalline matrix with properties that are different from ordinary water. Hexagonal water appears to play an important role in biological functions. It is being linked with improved hydration, enhanced nutrient absorption, DNA function and improvements in metabolic efficiency. The amount of hexagonal water in the body has even been correlated with aging. In this work by Dr. Emoto it was shown how thoughts affect this crystallization process.
The human body consists mostly of water, approximately 70 percent. The formula for water is H2O, meaning a single molecule contains two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. But water is far more complex than this simple formula seems to indicate. On a molecular scale, water is very "sticky," the H’s from one molecule are also attracted to the O’s of surrounding molecules. Thus, water molecules attract each other and tend to clump together in a network, constantly assembling and disassembling bonds between neighboring molecules. Marcel hypothesized that these molecular "clumps" (actually cells of liquid crystal) are capable of storing information in a manner similar to how computers store data on a disk. The dynamic nature notwithstanding, such information would be permanent and detectable. Marcel believed he had found evidence of this restructuring in spectral analysis of informationally processed water.
Water, as ice, forms a crystal of hexagonal symmetry (meaning the shape is six sided, as witnessed in snow flakes) with tetrahedral coordination (that is, each molecule is associated with its four neighboring molecules). Water’s formula, H2O, is the "inverse" of quartz, SiO2. Like water, silica is also hexagonal with tetrahedral coordination. Being a solid, any information impressed upon it is fixed within its macromolecular structure. We can visualize these structures as a kind of vast three-dimensional harp. Information is stored by causing specific bonds to resonate etherically, similar to a musical chord. Unlike a harp, the "sound" (or vibration) never diminishes. Stored information is permanently fixed until one chooses to erase it and begin anew. The molecular structure of water as ice or in liquid crystalline form is fundamentally the same as that of quartz. The below image illustrates the similarities between the structures of ice and quartz. Marcel found that information mentally impressed into quartz crystals could be transferred to water. The process was called "charging water," and once charged, the result was both permanent and measurable. He found that charged water developed a new absorption band in the ultraviolet. This is like saying it changed color!
Since early in this century it has been known that quartz is a resonator and amplifier of energy. It is a vital component in many electronic devices. What was not known is that quartz crystal is also capable of amplifying "subtle forces" including thought energy. The reason this had remained difficult to demonstrate is that, regardless of how fine the quality of the crystal tested, the conditions under which it was formed were highly individualistic. Simply stated, no two crystals are identical, and in science, a theory cannot be based on a single case. The amplification of thought energy includes so much "static" (other vibrations) that it becomes lost in the noise. Marcel discovered the answer to this problem. He found that when quartz is cut along the c-axis (the line of symmetry within the crystal perpendicular to all other axes) in the shape of the Kabalistic Tree of Life, it resonates to ONE frequency. It so happens the frequency (which turned out to be 454) is the same vibratory rate he also measured for water. Therefore, Vogel-cut crystals are powerful instruments capable of taking thought impressions and literally injecting them into the matrix of water. From this work he developed three tools: the double terminated healing crystal, single terminated meditation crystal and the Star of David crystal medallion.
This crystal device can be utilized in the directing of healing energy by impressing it with the desire and intention to do so. Although it seems like magic, actually it is more technological. The energy field created by the brain (a bioelectric organ) sets up subtle changes in the energy states within the crystal. This is similar to the "observer effect" recognized by modern physics. As an amplifier, the crystal increases this effect to the point where water can accept the same changes. Marcel demonstrated this in his laboratory. In a repeatedly performed experiment, he impressed the intention "to remain pure" into a healing crystal. Marcel then injected this "information" into fruit juice. He kept two uncovered glasses side-by-side, one treated in this manner and the other as a control. Over a period of months he observed that the treated juice remained clear and fragrant; the control became cloudy, filled with mold and bacterial growth. In a similar manner, the intention to heal can be transferred through a crystal. The body, being mostly water, accepts the charge immediately, often with dramatic results.

One of the primary areas of investigations at the Psychic Research laboratory was the relationship between water and quartz crystals. It has been found that by circulating water around a charged tuned quartz crystal many changes occur in the water. These changes are referred to as structuring.
The value of 454 represents the radionic signature, or the fundamental numerical identity of the information band of the water itself. It should be noted that the signature radionic measurement of a tuned crystal is also 454, indicating some connection between these crystals and water. This connection or resonance is not found in unfaceted quartz.
As we know, water consists of one oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms that are held together in a covalent bond This is an actual physical force, much like gravity, that holds these atoms together.
Structured water can be thought of as water that has a greater degree of bonding between adjacent water molecules than does unstructured water. Structured water also forms a crystalline-like structure consisting of elongated chains of molecules that can be differentiated from the surrounding water molecules by qualities that are consistent with qualities found in liquid crystals such as increased birefringence and a lowering of the freezing point.
A microstate is the angular, geometrical alignments t hat water molecules have when they are in the structured state. Quartz crystal shows a microstate but not a mesophase, as it is a permanent state solid rather than a transitional state or semi solid. When the various angles of the quartz molecule are investigated, a possible basis for its resonance with the water molecule is found.
The fundamental geometrical pattern of quartz and water is the tetrahedron. Water molecules, bound together, form tetrahedrons in tilted or puckered rings. This tilting happens because of the bonding angle that exists between any three water molecules. This angle is 109.5 degrees. The normal flat hexagon has angles of 120 degrees. Water molecules with smaller angles, if they are to be formed into a hexagon, must have an uneven structure that is not in a flat plane but is instead a three dimensional object. This uneven structure is formed by what is called the bending angle or angle of tilt. This angle can be between 20 degrees and 60 degrees, but the most common is 26 degrees. This is where the intermolecular bond is the strongest and it happens to be half of the interlattice angle of quartz. The second most common bending angle for water is 54 degrees which is quite close to the interlattice angle of quartz as well.
The interlattice angle of a crystal is related to the basal angle. The basal angle is ½ of the angle of the tip of the crystal. The interlattice angle of quartz is 90 degrees minus the basal angle which is 38 degrees. Therefore the interlattice angle is 52 degrees. This is also the angle of the Cheops pyramid.
The intermolecular bonding angle for the water molecule is 104.5 degrees. This is the angle that exists between the hydrogen atoms of each water molecule. It is virtually double that of the interlattice angle for quartz.
It is possible that there is a compatible harmonic between water and quartz because of the similarity of these angles. This would allow a resonant transfer of the energies that are imputed to the crystal to a significant group of water molecules in any given sample.
The structure of quartz can replicate itself in water because of this resonant transfer based upon structure.
The geometric structure produces frequency patterns, harmonics, that can transfer into water. Very small amounts of energy are required for this transfer. The nature of resonant systems is such that a minimal input can achieve a maximal output.
Resonance transfer occurs because the energy waveforms coming out of a vibrating substance have nearly identical waveforms. The phase relationships of a resonating system can be defined in terms of the angular separation that exists between adjacent molecules. The six molecules that form one hexagonal ring, when in resonance, will vibrate or broadcast its energy on a wave that has a particular frequency. The first molecule will vibrate influencing the second molecule; the second will affect the third, and so on. The time intervals between successive broadcasts will result in a phase delay which can be converted into a phase angle. Successive waves coming from an oscillating system have successive phase angles that equal the angular separation that exists between members of the system.
The phase angle within the vibrating ring of water molecules is 60 degrees (360 divided by 6). If there were 7 molecules in the ring the phase angle would be 360/7 or 51.43 degrees. This is the principle phase angle of quartz. Most of the internal angles of water and quartz are either fractions of this angle or multiples of it.
It is the interlattice resonance between the quartz microstate and the lyotropic mesophase that is the determining factor in the formation of the lyotropic mesophase in water. It is the reason that water can be structured by spinning it around a tuned quartz crystal. It does not require large amounts of energy to accomplish this.
As an example of resonant transfer, one can imagine a series of dominoes being placed across the United States. from San Francisco to Washington. Each successive domino would be slightly larger and heavier than the previous piece. By the time we reached Washington, the final domino might be as large as the Washington monument. By applying a slight push to the first domino, less than one pennyweight, each domino would be knocked over until the final piece was toppled. Through the introduction of a very small energy to a system the result is the production of enough energy to knock over the final very large and heavy domino.
The structuring of water around a tuned quartz crystal is dependent upon the program that is imprinted into the crystal. It is the program that brings about the abrupt change in state. A fundamental program that can bring about dramatic changes in water is that of unconditional love.
In the structuring of water and wines the question was whether there was a field created in space when the water was spun around a crystal.
The above images are of the crystal water structuring unit at the Dreamhill Research Facility
A GE magnetometer was attached to the inside of the structuring chamber and a series of readings were taken when the water was spun around a charged crystal. Within the chamber was housed a stainless steel coil, the tubing being ¾ inch in diameter and with seven right hand turns. The diameter of the coil was approximately six inches. The programmed tuned crystal was placed, with firing tip (the more acute termination) downwards, in a specially designed holder so that it was in place within the coil.
The chamber or enclosure for the coil and crystal was made from pine and finished with shellac. The magneto- meter was mounted on the side of the chamber with the probe placed in the space between the crystal and the coil. The temperature was kept at 70 degrees F with the chamber sealed. 1000cc of water was used at all times.
For each pass around the crystal, a 50cc sample was taken for an analysis with the Omega 5, a 50cc sample was taken for pH and conductivity measurements, and a cuvette sample was taken for infra-red and ultra-violet spectro-photometry.
The results of these experiments showed that:
1) Water spinning
in a coil generates a weak, but measurable field
The basic changes noted in water after being spun around an appropriately charged and tuned crystal were as follows:
According to Marcel:
“This structuring is best assayed with a UV spectro-photometer where one finds an increase in UV absorption due to an increase in the water bonding from the water forming chains on itself. The magnetic moment of this structured water is increased by 0.07 gauss and there is also an increase in the pH and dielectric conductivity. Boiling of the water after structuring shows no change in the UV spectrum, so one can conclude that a permanent chemical change has taken place. When a drop of this structured silica water is dried on a slide and compared with untreated silica water, the photomicrographs show the formation of needle-like silica crystals in the structured water drop while the untreated water dried to an amorphous mass of silica gel. This shows that the process of structuring water produces a structuring or ordering effect on the solutes in solution. ”
The crystal, in this case was programmed with the intent of unconditional love. The water could be programmed with specific information depending upon the nature of the information programmed into the crystal. If, for example, the crystal was programmed with a sedative, the water would take on this characteristic or vibration. Drinking the water would induce sleep or deep relaxation.
Practical applications of this process include agriculture, the preservation of foods, as well as potential uses for healing.
The energetic patterns of a fertilizing agent can be stored in a crystal and then transferred into water. The water is then used to irrigate plants. We have found on a small scale experimentation that plants treated in this way show significant growth increase compared to untreated plants.
Although in most cases it was found that water generated a weak magnetic field, on one occasion a different effect was noted. Normally the effects noted above were attained by circulating water through a Pyrex glass tube coiled seven clockwise turns, around a tuned crystal. By reversing the position of the crystal so that the firing tip was pointed upwards, an energy was released that lifted Marcel off the floor and flung him to the wall. He was standing approximately three feet away from the apparatus when this happened. Afterwards his eyes were burned as if from intense radiation.
Water is an unknown because of its familiarity. We have yet to discover the power inherent in this plentiful fluid. When water is circulated and spun around a charged crystal, enormous charge can be released from it. Further research is needed to determine the nature of this energy.
It is quite likely that although there is a measurable magnetic field present, it is, in reality, only an effect of something more fundamental in nature than EM fields. It should be noted, however, that the fields present in both the crystal and liquid when charged, whatever the nature of that field, can be cleared by a bulk de-magnetizer.
Dr. Glen Rein has called these energies a quantum field or non-Hertzian energy. Dr. Rein has stated that quantum fields are independent of time and distance. This correlates with the observations made by Marcel not only in his work with water, but in his early work with plants as well. His observation is that thought seems to overcome the inverse square law.
The term “information transfer” is used to refer to an energetic phenomenon that is not in the traditionally accepted electromagnetic spectrum. Although somewhat vague, the term “information” indicates that there is some kind of discreet coding and not just an unqualified energy. When an information transfer takes place from a tuned crystal to water, wine, juice, or even milk, there is an abrupt, immediate change in the physical properties of the fluid.
For example, in 1986 I was given two bottles of wine. One was a prize winning 1983 Chardonnay from the Sycamore Creek Vineyards. The second bottle was a 1986 Chardonnay from the same vineyard, newly bottled. There was a remarkable difference between the two in regard to body, bouquet, flavor, and even color.
I took a sample of the 1986 wine and obtained measurements from the Omega 5 in all three parameters: signature value, internal field, and external field. I then used the Omega 5 to program a tuned crystal with this information. Having done this I placed the crystal within a coil of Pyrex glass tubing. The coil was housed within a wooden box. I then poured the 1986 wine through the tubing so that it circulated around the crystal. I did t his seven times, so that sample one passed around the crystal once, sample two passed around the crystal twice, sample three, three times, and so on. I also kept a control sample.
The fourth sample was then taken to the Omega and measured. The value obtained was then transferred into a tuned crystal. The crystal was placed back into the apparatus and the remainder of the 1986 Chardonnay was circulated around it. In subjective taste testing by all of us present in the laboratory (including the vintners) the 1986 wine seemed to be a duplicate of the 1983 wine.
According to Marcel:
The most profound effect of the faceted crystal has to do with its relationship and resonance to water. A crystal that is faceted and tuned to the water molecule will hold a charge or information that when transferred to the body of person will link to the H2O molecule. This charge is stored within the interlattice space of the crystal. Because more than 70% of the physical body is water, the Vogel tuned crystal, with its resonance with water, is the perfect delivery mechanism for the introduction of subtle energies to an individual. It was also thought that the various subtle energy bodies described in metaphysical literature are gradations of a field that is anchored to the physical body via the water molecule.
The crystal is a quantum converter that is able to store and transmit energy in a form that has discreet biological effects. It is speculated that because of the cohering capability of the tuned crystal it can be used to affect “reality” at the quantum or subatomic level. The imprint of thoughtforms or coding is stored on and within the particles or wave packets at the quantum level. This is most likely a resonant effect. The human body, on an energetic level, is an array of oscillating points that are layered and have a definite symmetry and structure at both the macro and micro dimensions.
The bones, tissues, cells, and fluids of the body have a definite crystallinity about them. The structure of the fluids, cells, and tissues of the body tend to become unstructured or incoherent when dis-ease or distress is present. The physical body is comprised of liquid crystal systems in the cell membranes, intercellular fluids as well as the larger structures such as the fatty tissues, muscular and nervous systems, lymph, blood, and so on. Through the use of an appropriately tuned crystal, to which these structures are responsive, balance and coherence can be restored by delivering the necessary “information”.
Much of the above material has been taken from a transcript of a paper presented at the 1996 2nd Annual Advanced Water Sciences Symposium and the 1998 United States Psychotronics Association Conference.

Dr. Carly Nuday, PHD recently wrote a book titled "Water Codes" which connects the science of health and consciousness in relationship to structured water, as well as other aspects in religions throughout the world. This is a brilliant composition that acknowledges and expands upon the work of Dr. Marcel Vogel in water research.
The book discusses several important aspects of water in relationship to the liquid crystalline structure of water and consciousness. What is found in research studies is that the greater the structuring of the water around the cells and DNA of our body, the less entropy or decay occurs.
As Nobel Prize winner in medicine Dr. Alexis Carrel stated "The cell is immortal, It is merely the fluid in which it floats that degenerates. Renew this fluid at regular intervals, give the cells what they require for nutrition, and as far as we know, the pulsation of life can go on forever."
The waters of our body reflects instantaneously our consciousness and the energies in our environment. Water acts as a "Fractal Antenna" according to Dr. Apollo Stoppelbein, Dr. Nuday's research associate. Energies of consciousness or the environment can be either in harmony or discord in coherence with the fundamental structure of life reflected in the degree of water structuring.
The greater the degree of geometrical structuring of the water, has been shown to be an indication that it is more in alignment with that of the consciousness of love, gratitude, happiness etc. As both Dr. Vogel and Dr. Emoto have conclusively demonstrated in their laboratories.
Conversely, the greater degree of destructing of the water is an indication that it has fallen out of alignment or resonance with our core nature demonstrated in the emotions of hatred, fear, malice etc. This can also be induced by environmental influences such as ingestion or exposure of toxic substances, as well as electromagnetic pollution such as cell phones and other forms of radiation that impacts the structuring of the waters of our body, sometimes causing cancerous conditions to arise due to the integrity of the supportive structure being compromised.
Due to water's unique tetrahedral/hexagonal geometrical structure and it's ability with this structure to universally resonate with all the major crystallographic forms in nature, shows that the geometry of water does represent a form resonance that is universally resonant. This structure being universally resonant, has structures within structures within structures, in other words these structures are fractal like nested within the body of water. The higher degree of harmonious coherence, the greater the sub-harmonic resonant structures replicate almost to the degree theoretically to that of infinity. In the science of electromagnetic antenna resonance, it is found that antennas that are termed log periodic which display resonant elements that are self-similar, also known as fractal, are resonant universally across the electromagnetic spectrum to transmit and receive radio signals for example. This is consistent with what Dr. Vogel would say that these laws in physics are "akin" or have similar properties.
Research has shown that all life forms are based on the fundamental geometry structuring whose corresponding mathematics extend fractally into infinity, such as the golden mean or Phi 1.618 and hexagonal structures of the sq. root of 3 or 1.732, replicating itself with geometry patterns within patterns into fractal infinity, which has a correlation that our sciences are just now beginning make to the connection between geometry and consciousness.
movie "Water the Great Mystery" is about the scientists around
I would like to give credit to others on much of the text on this page that was taken from PRI transcripts, articles on the web, etc., supplementing this page about the work of Marcel. I would like to share from a personal perspective what I learned from Marcel while working and hanging out with him and that wonderful mind of his. The material that follows are partially taken from supportive lab experiment papers and other reference materials that have shown indicators that point to an understanding in this direction. I do not wish to infer that this understanding is by any means complete or fully accurate in it's total understanding, but rather an indicator toward a direction of understanding a newfound science of the future. This understanding appears more mystical than traditional science, but in essence, science in it's depth of understanding is truly mystical. I can say that I have never met a scientist like Marcel that could bring that which is mystical into a scientific framework of understanding as he could.
"Man is made in the image of God, therefore we create" - Marcel Vogel
Within us is the polarity of male and female
The interaction of the opposites is the creative force
"The Soul, the intention of life force, is to bring life into being. When the Soul enters the unit cell, it draws to itself the replication of its own image. You see that with crystals and with God and man." - Marcel
“A crystal is an assemblage of molecules that form a unit cell, a consciousness, a soul. It takes your program and draws to itself the replication of its image.” - Marcel
Essentially we are creative beings that create and recreate from moment to moment our reality and oscillate at our own unique frequency. This oscillation that we resonate is derived from what some term as our "soul" (but isn't everything semantics until the scientific language can support a fuller understanding). We operate within an interconnected information matrix of consciousness, in which time and space are aspects of the structure but these are not limitations of the subtler realms or higher octaves of it's structure. The structure of this matrix is vibratory and therefore geometrical and multidimensional in it's harmonics.
The geometrical lattice structure of material quartz can store, amplify and transmit through it's repetitive crystalline tetrahedral structure, that forms hexagonal in shape and at a 52 degree golden mean angle which appears to align with the underlying mathematical structure of this matrix and therefore appears to act as a conduit for the creative patterns of thought through it unimpeded.

Being a broadcast engineer, I would like to give a perspective on the amplification of thought through the crystals lattice structure. Marcel used to say that the known laws of science and properties which we can measure were "akin" to those which we were working with in the mind/matter research with the crystals.
In radio theory, a single antenna has a definite gain. Duplicating this antenna and feed from the same source will provide 3dB more gain. Duplicating again will add 3dB more. etc. Antennas arranged in a configuration called a "Phased Array" appear very similar to that of a repetitive crystalline structure. Enormous gain is realized by feeding this large array of little repetitive identical antennas such that they are in phase with each other by feeding the signal and spacing the distance of them apart for the correct wavelength or phase relationship. So that the overall effect has greatly amplified the signal of receiving or transmitting. You could say that, all of the little antennas resonating on the same wavelength are equivalent to a large powerful high gain antenna, whose signal strength can break through the background noise and override weaker signals.
Another analogy is that a thought pattern, akin to a radio signal, which is induced into the repetitive crystalline array, is rebroadcasted in a coherent or in-phase with itself relationship, so that the accumulative effect is to amplify the original thought pattern from the individuals mind. This pattern is now being joined by trillions of other programmable minds, you could say, in complete unison or coherency of the originating thought that was induced into the crystalline matrix. Imagine as though you are a magician and you have at your command trillions of unpatterned minds that will say yes to whatever you think by reflecting and patterning your thoughts. It is like many Buddhist monks chanting and praying in unison toward a single vision of thought and therefore through the power of numbers, it becomes more powerful.

The similar atomic geometries in water, although not patterned in a crystalline formation when liquid, have a similar ability to interact with thought. The transference of these thought patterns, it has been found, can occur from quartz that is attuned to cohere the unique vibratory resonance of the user, and the users intention can be programmed into the crystal and transferred into water by circulating the water in a clockwise direction around the quartz crystal. This process is akin to how an inductor in electronics induces an energy field into another component in proximity to the field.
Since all matter records these energetic patterns, with some having greater permeability than others, such as stones and metals can store greater than wood and plastic for example. These recorded patterns oscillate on multiple harmonics, in other words from ethereal (mind stuff) to more denser (physical matter) and thus subtle patterns can manifest into a physical pattern. Since patterns can be stored in matter and nothing is dormant in the vibratory universe, they can be continually rebroadcasting that pattern and therefore have a tendency to perpetuate or re-create itself, so long as nothing intervenes with the pattern, such as erasing it or repatterning it. I bring this point up in regards to patterns that become locked in a persons body, for example, whether it be created from a mental, emotional or physical impact level.
In the physical sciences, the ability of crystals to store information is widely known. "According to the September 4, 1994, issue of Newsweek, Stanford University physicists have demonstrated the first fully digital model of a device that stores information as a hologram within the subatomic structure of a crystal. The scientists were able to store and retrieve a holographic image of the Mona Lisa. The particular crystal held only 163 kilobytes of memory, but it is expected that these holographic units could store up to one million megabytes. The short article says that crystals store information in three dimensions and could be ten times faster than the fastest systems currently available."
Whatever thought pattern occurs within us, we have a tendency of recreating, unless intervened upon by our creative ability. The underlying matrix in which forms our physical forms is patterned by our thoughts. As we inhale and exhale our breath, there is a multidimensional information exchange in this breathing process occurring of the sending and receiving of our thoughts. This thought-breath link has characteristics that show that a rapid transition or a rapid short burst of breath can cause a rapid transformation in physical matter focused through thought. This could be analogous with that of striking a bell sharply versus softly or creating a ripple in the ocean versus the sharp earth movement that can trigger the power of a tsunami in movement. In electronics a sharp spike in an electrical signal will generate a lot of power in harmonic multiples of the signal. Such is the effect with the breath and focused thought.
In order to focus and amplify this thought and intent utilizing the properties of quartz, Marcel received a vision how the quartz crystal could geometrically be formed to act as a cohering device that could receive from one end (the universal or female end) and project the users resonant field. This frequency of the individual, translates, as all frequency patterns do, to a specific geometry or angle. This is what forms the other end (the male end). The crystal would then act as a transducer of thought and reflect upon itself within the crystal in a cohering fashion that would amplify the thought and intention of the user.
This design originally inspired by a vision of the form of the Kabbalistic tree of life, whereas the upper triangle is symbolic of creation from the highest unmanifested level which Marcel selected appropriately the 52 degree angle at one end which is placed along the growth axis to the other end. This is the plane in which energy spirals through the crystal, this can be seen as revealed as left or right handed terminations to which direction the spiral is moving into a pyramidal hexagonal point of 52 degrees which is the angle that the natural 6 facets of quartz terminates. This is the exact angle of the Great Pyramid and contains the ratio of the golden mean which is reflected throughout life's patterns and is the only ratio that goes into perfect portion into infinity, thus reflecting the very nature of creation.
The other end symbolic of the Tree of Life's lower triangle, representing the final earthly manifestation, is also pyramidal in form but instead of 52 degrees is formed with a more acute degree angle of around 60 degrees that is resonant with the individual. The completed crystal with its universal resonator at one end and the personally tuned resonator at the other end then work to cohere the thought and intension of the user that could be analogous with that of how a laser works. For example in a laser a ruby crystal is situated in an enclosed tube between two mirrors. Once the ruby crystal has been excited by photons it projects its energy to the mirrors, which both reflect back and forth in a resonant manner that amplifies the light energy manyfold through this reflecting process. Since one mirror is 100% reflective and the other 99% reflective 1% of the energy fires off one end and creates the beam of cohered laser light. In a process "akin" to this, thought that can be cohered between the two faceted angles in the quartz crystal.
This is the fundamental shape of the Vogel quantum transducer formed out of quartz crystal. Note that the female or universal end is always set at exactly 52 degrees which is the natural interlattice angle of quartz and is associated with Phi (1.618). The male or firing tip is critically formed to reflect the imprinted patterns of thought in such as way that the more acute angle projects the energy akin to how a laser outputs a coherent beam. The number of sides on the Vogel crystal determines the frequency of the vortexial spin eminating in its output.
Coherent thought is powerful because it, similar to the laser, builds upon itself and therefore comes closer to full manifestation from thought into the physical realm. Just as the laser excitation medium such as a ruby crystal or helium-neon gas resonates at a precise coherent frequency, the quartz crystal is attuned radionically to 454 the rate of water. Quartz like water both being a universal resonator, resonates to all structures and is therefore unimpeded in what it can cohere and transmit in the spectrum unlike a single frequency laser. Under the concept that thoughts are things at a pre-physical or virtual level of existence, when cohered, can actually take physical form in a time scale proportional to the degree of coherency of that thought. This could be liken to how an Eastern Master can materialize an apple or object in his hand through a completely clear visualization of it.
An example of how the mind projects energitic patterns that affect a sensitive crystallization process was demonstrated by Marcel while he was viewing the growth of a liquid crystal, Marcel was able to alter its final form. Instead of maintaining the normal shape that an oleate of cholesterol would take, the outcome was a configuration clearly recognizable as the Madonna. Marcel had been focusing on an image of the Blessed Virgin in his mind’s eye while viewing the growth of the crystal under the microscope, uninterrupted, for one solid hour!

In the techniques that Marcel shared with me in erasing and repatterning discordant or dis-eased patterns in the body it was noted that injuries that were physically impacted to the skeletal structure of the body, responded most rapidly. It was noted that the bone structure had an ability to store and record these patterns more readily. These patterns are especially recorded in water, in which the body is 70% composed of.
In the process of knowing where locally to work on the body, if not readily apparent like a broken arm as such, oh I better get this out of the way and say "These statements have not been approved by the FDA and before trying any of the procedures here you should see your doctor first". yeah right, Ok back to our discussion in locating the causal source of a problem in the body. Not to get biblical (because I am certainly not into any religion) but the statement "ask and you shall receive", has some fundamental truth to how the information matrix of the mind works. There is truth in the saying that sometimes truth is so simple it evades the mind, which is looking for complex answers. The mind is such that, you put a question pattern out and then without questioning your ability to receive the answer, allow the mind to show you in whatever manner it may want to take in your mind's eye, be it an image, a pattern, a color or emotion. Use this information as a focal point to process that which is at the root cause of the problem in which you asked to be shown the causal pattern of.
The process of intervening with a crystal instrument such as this with an individual who wishes to release a discordant pattern in their body has been laid out fairly well in detail by others who worked with Marcel as well. Such as in the bottom section of this PDF document.
I will briefly summarize the process I was instructed and have used successfully. Note there is no substitute for experience with this, and there is more details to all this, but this is only meant as an overview of the procedure. I learned directly from Marcel and watched and learned as he did this process numerous times.
1 Consent to Facilitate: First of course you must have the persons consent and willingness to process and allow you to act as a facilitator of that process. Acknowledging that they essentially will be doing the process of bringing balance back to their body and that your role will be assisting them.
2 Energy Level Up: You and the person need to have your energy levels up. You can't do much if either of you is not at some level of charge. This is done through the breath and breathing deeply in sync.
3 Resonate and Link: Once your charge is built up in the crystal through rotating and rubbing it in your hand, this builds up an electrostatic charge, it is then brought into resonance with the person by slowly turning the crystal clockwise until a resonant peak is felt in your receiver hand.
4 Ask to be shown the Source: Once you are linked into their system, have them ask to be shown in their minds eye the root cause or source of that which is causing them the problem. While they are doing that you are amplifying their energy in a clockwise spiral as thought to create a vortex of energy to come into the area to be processed. What I have personally experienced is it actually will increase the discordant signal level in their body, making it easier for them to lock their mind onto that which is causing them the problem. This could be analogous to an out of tune electronic circuit that you pump more power into it and the bad components start to heat up and reveal themselves. All the time this is going on they are breathing deeply in and out.
5 Lock on and Release: Once the person receives in their mind's eye the response to their question of the source of the problem, be it an image, pattern, color, emotion, or whatever etc., it's important to take what comes at face value and not analyze, but rather have them use it as the tool to lock their mind onto it, as they slowly take a deep breath in and at that exact point in the breath cycle, just before the exhale, have them completely connect to that which was given them as the source of the problem. Then in a powerful burst of exhalation, very similar to how a martial artist would release his breath in a Kung Fu blow, you give the command to "Release! ". Release with them in sync, visualizing that pattern going out of their system with the pulsed breath and assisting them with the crystal, energetically like a scalpel, removing the offending pattern from their system.
6 Restore with Love: Immediately upon the release have the person fill the void of what has been removed with "love for themselves" this is important because Love is the integrative force that brings things together in harmony. It may sound unscientific, but in fact, it is what works. You may want to also ground the person because after all that deep breathing you can get a bit out there. Marcel used to suggest touching along the back of the collar bone area for a grounding effect on the person.
7 Clearing the Crystal: Since the crystal does record all of the interactions of this exchange, which you would not want to transfer onto another, it can be cleared by using either a magnetic bulk demagnetizer (my fav method) or using the breath and pulsing with the intent to clear it and doing so on each of its vertical facets.

Crystal Pyramid Discovered In Bermuda Triangle 2012
Dr. Ray Brown described the room in the pyramid which held the crystal in the center of the room with two hands atop a pedestal. From the pyramids ceiling a golden rod tipped with a red crystal pointed at the crystal from above. Surrounding the crystal in a circle were 7 chairs with one being higher than the other 6. On the wall was a falcon holding the sun in it's talons with 7 beings sitting on top each wing. On it's breast were 14 gemstones in a 2-3-4-3-2 pattern. These extra details of the room inside the pyramid were given to my brother by Dr Brown. The seven chairs in a circle surrounding the quartz crystal sphere which connected within it a grid system of pyramids and appears to be a method of interfacing the 7 beings, with apparently one of them in the larger chair leading the group and projecting their consciousness through the crystal, interfacing up through the red pointed crystal connected at the end of the golden rod from the ceiling connected into the massive pyramid structure interfacing possibly whatever this groups intention was, possibly changing the actual structure of reality? who knows, but it's significant the element of consciousness interfacing with these advanced technologies in that pyramid room that incorporate a higher understanding of the geometry interface between mind and matter. A lost knowledge from our ancient past.

Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull
He saw a temple with a hole in the top. The skull sat on a pedestal directly under this hole. There was a priest robed in white, wearing a medallion of gold inscribed with the image of the sun and its rays. The priest waited for the light of the sun to strike the skull, illuminating it. An older person with a shaved head came into the temple. The priest put his left hand on the head of the elderly man and his right hand on the crystal skull. He drew his breath in and pulsed the breath. The information in the mind of the older man was now transferred to the skull. He left and in his place came a young girl also dressed in white. The priest reversed his hands, placed his left hand on the skull and his right hand on the head of the young girl. He drew his breath in and pulsed his breath. That knowledge that was contained in the skull was now in the mind of the young person. Ref
