Walter Russell spent the first half of his life as a world class portrait painter, architect, author, composer, sculptor and philosopher. In 1926, with the publication of his periodic charts in The Universal One, he predicted the existence of deuterium and tritium as well as all the transuranium elements such as plutonium and neptunium. By 1927 he had transmuted water into 17 different substances at the Westinghouse Lamp Laboratories. His science writings and work earned him a Doctor's Degree of Science from The American Academy of Sciences in 1941. In the later years of his life, Dr. Russell published several books on the principles for transmutation of any element into any other element and then focused on demonstrating his new science principles for nonpolluting, sustainable free energy technology until he passed on in 1963. (from "in the Wave lies the Secret of Creation" by Dr. Timothy Binder)


Walter Russell (1871-1963), was a leading figure in Physics and cosmogony. He posited that the universe was founded on the unifying principle of rhythmic balanced interchange. Although a number of his books have been published, few of his claims have been verified by mainstream academics. Mainstream academics consider Walter Russell to be pseudoscience. This however is not entirely accurate, Walter Russell purported a fuller understanding of science, and spent the rest of his life laying this out in terms understandable to laymen.


Russell and Science

In 1926 Russell announced the spiral periodic chart of elements, in two formats, and sent them to hundreds of scientists, also publishing "The Universal One" and sending it to hundreds of scientists.

In 1927 Russell transmuted distilled H2O into significant amounts of hydrogen, or helium, or nitrogen, or fluorine - at the Westinghouse Laboratories.

In 1939 Russell lectured about "Space and the Hydrogen Age" at the annual convention of The Eastern Electronic Association held at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York, on May 13th.

In 1953 Russell sent out "An Open Letter to the World of Science" to "350 members of our National Academy of Science and Royal Society of London, 100 Universities, and 300 leading newspapers".

In 1958-1961 Russell worked with NORAD in pulling energy from the cosmos with his dually sexed coils methodology - reported success

In 1963 Walter Russell died.


Born in Boston, MA on May 19, 1871, Russell left formal schooling at the age of eight (ten in some accounts) in order to help support his family. Following his interest and skill in music, at thirteen he became a church organist. He paid his own way through Massachusetts Normal School of Art and supported himself from then on. A succession of jobs showcased his talents: art editor at Collier's Magazine, portraitist, author and lecturer, architect (Hotel des Artists, West 67th St., New York Alwyn Court at 58th and Seventh Avenue a Gothic studio opposite the Museum of Natural History on 79th St.), sculptor (including busts of Mark Twain, Thomas Edison, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, etc.). Many images of his scientific work are available at and [

Russell also studied physics, and in this latter scientific period, he was one of a series of people, including There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1] referred to as the 'fabric of space'.


Walter Russell presented to the world new theories such as the fundamental principles of energy dynamics, the nature of matter and the progression of the evolution of matter, and the depiction of the universe as a continuously changing, creating effort sustained by the systematic work effort of the energy of light which all matter is composed. His depictions of universal laws was expansive enough to be considered a complete nonstandard cosmology. Today his works are known as Russelian science.

Russell portrayed the principles of the unity of universal law in a way that brought many highly considered theories into direct conflict, or rather incompleteness, such as some of the fundamental principles derived by Newton. He presented a new view of the periodic table of elements that led him to the prediction of the existence of plutonium which was still unknown to mankind and soon after discovered, (as well as elements which are still unknown to mankind but have their mathematical placement in his charts) as well as the creation of heavy water which is required for the process of releasing nuclear energy. Russell’s periodic table has not however been adopted fully despite these discoveries, as it indeed defies a great deal of current scientific thought, primarily the nature of the evolution of matter and the unified wavelength principle which his table is based.

Such conflicts have left the work of Russell somewhat in the category of obscurity as his cosmology, while complete in itself, would require upon its academic and scientific acceptance not only the upheaval of many scientific theories, but also matters such as the nature of God. The connections between matters that many consider religious has left many to dismiss all of his material.

Besides his scientific contributions, Russell was successful in a wide array of fields as well, including the fine arts, architecture, business, and of course writing. He was friend and advisor to many prominent historical figures such as the president of the United States and gave many lectures across the nation about the connection between these universal principles and the applications of such knowledge to human life. The University of Science and Philosophy is committed to publishing his books and perpetuating his teachings.

Russel and the New Age

The term "New Age" in its contemporary sense can be traced back at least to 1944. That year, American artist and philosopher Walter Russell published an essay in which he discussed "...this New Age philosophy of the spiritual re-awakening of man..."

As a mystic and visionary of the type described in Dr. Richard Maurice Bucke's classic 1901 work, "Cosmic Consciousness," Russell accepted Bucke's premise that not only the human body, but also human consciousness, has evolved in stages. Human consciousness periodically makes progressive leaps, such as that from animal awareness to rational self-awareness many millennia ago. Russell believed with Dr. Bucke that humankind is now on the brink of making another key, evolutionary leap in consciousness. The next cycle of human evolution, said Bucke, will be from rational self-consciousness to spiritual super-consciousness on the order of that experienced by the great sages, religious figures, and mystics of the past 2,500 years and on up to today.

The idea was not that everyone would suddenly become a Christ, a Mozart, or an Einstein overnight. Rather, Bucke held that with each passing generation, more and more human beings will become routinely aware of their primary transcendent relationship to God, eternity, and the all-powerful creative source of the universe. Generations from now, Bucke believed, this level of enlightened, saint-like consciousness will be as common as rational self-awareness is now. In 1901, Bucke estimated that the number of individuals who have achieved this cosmically-conscious level of existence was tiny, but he speculated that their numbers were increasing steadily.

So it was that in 1947-48, Russell wrote: "This New Age is marking the dawn of a new world-thought. That new thought is a new cosmic concept of the value of man to man. The whole world is discovering that all mankind is one and that the unity of man is real – not just an abstract idea. Mankind is beginning to discover that the hurt of any man hurts every man, and, conversely, the uplift of any man uplifts every man" (Message of the Divine Iliad, vol. 2, p. 69). Russell’s predictions about what the New Age would bring included “a marriage between religion and science?? (MDI p 257).

Russell appeared to believe that this "New Age" would begin in 1946, based on a vision he had in 1921.

Russell's ideas also have much in common with -- but are in no way formally associated with -- the New Thought movement and its religious expressions in such organizations as Science of Mind, Unity, and the like. The most extensive treatment of Russell's ideas are found in his book, "A Course in Cosmic Consciousness."

After Russell's death in 1963, the term that he apparently coined took on a life of its own. The name New Age was popularized by the American mass media during the late 1980s...

Russell's Periodic Table and advancement of science

In the 1920s, Walter Russell suggested a Periodic Table of Elements - which enhanced and fulfilled the previous Mendeleev Periodic Table of Elements. Walter Russell's Table consists of Octaves, and, whilst ignored by mainstream science, has proven worthwhile in hindsight, after a "missing" element has been discovered, the Table of Elements of Russell actually already defined it.

The Periodic Table of Elements consists of 9 Octaves.

{{quotation|(Russell's Periodic Table) is a 2 dimensional representation of a 3 dimensional concept of a 4 dimensional reality.

the familiar (scientific) periodic table by I think it is Mendlelev or somebody from the 1800's- That is a 2 dimensional representation of a 4 dimensional reality.|594}}

In 1927, Walter Russell published "The Universal One", his fist attempt to explain the Cosmic Laws for the established scientists. As he failed completely, he worked another twenty years on it. The result is his "The Secret of Light", which he published in 1947.

In 1941, the American Academy of Sciences conferred a doctorate on him, after several laboratories had isolated the elements which he had foreseen: Deuterium, Tritium, Neptunium and Plutonium. We are basically dealing with a person who had advanced understanding, but was pooh-poohed away because he was not a learned man according to mainstream science/academics. That Russell's Periodic Table of Elements was musical, spiral/vortical in nature, leads to obvious connections with Viktor Schauberger. However, many books on Viktor Schauberger have not made the connection between them, because Walter Russell is not very well known in alternative energy circles.

Russell and Nikola Tesla

Although the exact time and occasion of their meeting has not yet been determined, Nikola Tesla and Walter Russell did meet and discuss their respective cosmologies. Tesla recognized the wisdom and power of Russells' teaching and urged Russell to lock up his knowledge in a safe for 1,000 years until man was ready for it.

Russell, Norad, Energy from the Vacuum

In the fall of 1959, General Chapman, Colonel Fry, Major Sargent, Major Cripe, and others from NORAD in Colorado Springs, attended a meeting at Swannanoa, Virginia (University Of Science And Philosophy) at the invitation of Walter Russell. At this meeting Russell explained the workings of a device he proposed to build to take advantage of the vacuum state energy, and the two directional movement of energy from gravitation, (generation), to radiation, (degeneration). During the following year Russell, his wife, Lao, and their assistants built the device. The prototype that was built consisted of two sets of dual and magnetically-sexed coils. On September 10, 1961, Walter and Lao Russell reported to their contacts at NORAD,that the coils had worked and that the President of the United States could announce to the world that a "greater, safer power than atomic energy" could be provided for industry and transportation.


Russell also developed and tested "counter-wound sets of coils, each in the shape of overlapping cones".

The device was based on the "power multiplication principle" discussed in many of his books

According to a memo dated in 1961, the device worked "because of the false concept of gravity which assumes it to be a force of attraction which pulls inward from within, instead of a cyclic force which controls the expansion of cold into heat, and the expansion of heat into cold" "Nature's first principle of power production and the construction of matter is to produce heat from the cold of space." "The heat thus generated radiates back into cold to complete the wave cycle which automatically repeats itself in this ageless universe of infinite continuity" (Very similar to theories of Directory:Viktor Schauberger

On September 10th, 1961, Walter and Lao reported to their contacts at NORAD that they had succeeded. They were convinced that they had found, and demonstrated, a new source of energy, and a conversion process for what is now known as the zero point energy.

From "Space Energy / Vacuum Energy and the government", a rare Jeane Manning article translated from german into english using google-translate

Russell also built equipment, which he called "Russell's Optical Direct Current Generator" which, as stated, caught space/vacuum energy. Toby Grotz found original plans of this equipment, in a cellar in Colorado. The owner of the cellar was a colleague of a general within the NORAD.

Russell collaborated with scientists from NORAD and from the company Raytheon.

Grotz said that NORAD was interested in the generator - because in addition to the device producing more energy than it required to run, one could also adapt its functioning to an extremely efficient new type of radar device.

Russell said "the universe consists of electricity, and nature multiplies energies, by concentrating this electricity (or space energy) - until she forms matter, like for example a star or a planet. Russell's equipment created this natural energy accumulation again.

From "Magnets", a rare magazine article by Toby Grotz, Tim Binder and Ron Kovac

The concept behind Russell Coils: The inner coils are wound from the ends toward the center in opposite directions. The outer coils are wound from the center toward ends in opposite directions.

(in addition to transmutation) "Russell's work also involved the assembly of a device to produce energy from the background flux of fields"

"Recent research has uncovered experiments that were conducted by Walter and Lao Russell in conjunction with Raytheon Corporation

in Colorado Springs and General Chapman of NORAD.

The blue prints were discovered to still exist in Colorado Springs and the "Russell Optical Dynamo Generator" was found last fall in a basement, intact after 30 years.

Documents to be presented will show that Russell reported anomalous effects generated as a result of his circuit configuration and magnetic field interaction.

"The energy of the vacuum has been analyzed and described by many researchers. Walter Russell reported to have found a means to harness this vacuum."

The Device was based on the "power multiplication principle" discussed in many books Russell had written, many of which have been previously footnoted in this paper.

From a memo dated March 16, 1961, the following description is given: "This new power and light generator employs a power multiplication principle of nature... which multiplies gases of minus zero melting points into solids of over 3000 degrees or multiplies the cold of space into hot stars and novas of incredibly high temperatures. The reason it has never been known is because of the false concept of gravity which assumes it to be a force of attraction which pulls inward from within instead of a cyclic force which controls the expansion of cold into heat, and the expansion of heat into cold... Nature's first principle of power prdouction and the construction of matter is to produce heat from the cold of space. The heat thus generated radiates back into cold to complete the wave cycle which automatically repeats itself in this ageless universe of infinite continuity.

Every wave is a perfect dynamo, but the very purpose of waves is to generate heat in its armatures at wave amplitude points. That is the only way waves create matter"

The prototype that was built consisted of two sets of dual coils. The coils were wound as shown in the diagram provided and included with this text. The idea behind the coils is to simulate the life cycle of the electric current as shown below. The photograph shows the actual models of the coils.

On september 10, 1961, Walter and Lao Russell reported to their contacts at NORAD, that the coils had worked and that the President of the United States could announce to the world that a "greater, safer power than atomic energy" could be provided for industry and transportation.

The Russells were convinced that they had found and demonstrated a new source of energy and a conversion process for what is now known as the zero point energy.

Quotes on Walter Russell pertaining to Joe Cell

Over the course of time, there have been a few discussions and mentions of Walter Russell on the Joe Cell list.

Alex Schiffer references Walter Russell in 2552, 2575, and others.

Peter Stevens recommends reading Walter Russell to better understand how the Joe Cell works (or how, actually, all matter works)

Michael Couch, Joe said in one of the videos that this whole Joe Cell phenomena is based on Walter Russell's Unified Theories of the Universe which are firmly based on Phi, the golden mean.
