That's about it in regard to the film crew.
As for mine and other's experiences, there are a lot of stories to tell.
I'll work on it.
Biodynamic field broadcasting is the real deal, but when I say that how can
you know it is true? I'm tooting my own horn and I could simply be full of
BS. I don't think I've run across anyone saying it yet, but I'm selling
these things and asking $995 for a complete kit including the reagents and
a warrantry on circuit parts. If you hit it with your tractor you have to
buy your own pieces of PVC, but I'll supply any circuit parts. Well sooner
or later it will be said that I stand to make money by promoting field
broadcasting. I guess that's supposed to be a sin or something. But from my
point of view I'll never get it off the ground if I don't start making
money at it. I'll never have the money to promote it, for one thing.
I published the basic, no-frills design in the June '97 ACRES and found
that was a big mistake because most people bastardized it and did all sorts
of crazy things with it, including broadcasting Black Flag in one model.
Stupid, stupid. I had to come out with kits which contained everything,
including all the biodynamic prep in homeopathic potencies as reagents. And
I still have had people make major mistakes.
Two growers in Florida installed broadcasters and had the bright idea of
putting a pressure treated 4 x 4 alongside the broadcaster in the hole and
strapping the pipe to it. Since the wells face east the timber was on the
west side. The ether flows from east to west. This meant the treated timber
was directly in the ether stream and it contaminated their broadcast with
the copper/arsenic/chromium naphtenate treatment of the wood. It ruined
this year's orange crop at both locations. It was real serious.
Fortunately their broadcasts were limited to their own properties and
didn't affect anyone around them. But it was real serious, real noticeable.
These things shouldn't be used foolishly or ignorantly. They are the real
deal, and boy oh boy they get the preps out there. There's three or four
people on this list that have them, and we're going to see what they have
to say about them in the next year or so. If you buy one you've got
unlimited consulting goes with it, because if you have a problem like the
guys in Florida, we've got to get to the bottom of it immediately. And
every time we do we learn more.
One person got their preps and saw the set for the top well had spring to
fall horn clay and the set for the bottom well had fall to spring horn clay
reagents. ALL the reagents should have gone in the broadcaster. But this
person got the idea that one horn clay was to be used in summer and the
other in the winter and kept one out of the broadcaster. BIG mistake. They
missed out on what they should have gotten. Now I know I have to make my
instructions clearer. I'm learning all the time about what people do with
this, and if I don't make money at it I can't afford to let it get out
So that's a few more stories. Pretty interesting how the broadcaster made
the film crew's fresh batteries go flat in 30 or 40 seconds, huh? Chris
Pehovski, who I believe reads this list, has some polaroid photos of what
his broadcaster did to his ethers when he first put it in. The broadcast
showed up on the polaroid film like smoke. Once the broadcast fully
integrated with the existing ether fields it didn't show up on film any
more, but he's sure got the photos.
I had a conversation with Anne Mendenhall about field broadcasters a couple
years back at one of Allan's conferences. She had read my articles in ACRES
about field broadcasting (Cosmic Pipes) and pointed out that from my
articles it was clear this technology could be dangerous. It sure could.
Virtually as dangerous as a runaway tractor trailer trying to get to the
runaway truck ramp. I suspect it might be especially dangerous for someone
who thinks of biodynamics like this:

>carefully prepared preparations and supplemented by Biodynamic field sprays
>which were to be stirred and sprayed directly onto fields as indicated by
Let me suggest that biodynamics is a lot more than the above. I go to
conventions and there are a hundred booths with something to sell for your
soil. Biodynamics is the only method with something (Horn Silica) for the
atmosphere. What happens in the soil is digestion and nutrition. What
happens in the atmosphere is fruiting and ripening.
The reason biodynamics stands alone and can solve the insect and disease
problems when organic farming and all the other sustainable and natural
methods fail is when you have insects and fungi you have digestion
overwhelming fruiting and ripening. Insects are digestive. Fungi are
digestive. It's as clear as can be.
The atmosphere needs improvement along with the soil, and, used properly,
the biodynamic field sprays do this. The horn manure pumps up the soil
energies and the horn silica pumps up the atmosphere. The horn clay
mediates between the two and makes everything work as one system. Organic
methods can pump up the soil, but there isn't any organic remedy for a
devitalized atmosphere. There isn't even any awareness that something is
needed to heal the atmosphere. Some conventional and organic researchers
are working with spraying clay on foliage. They demonstrated this at the
last Mid-Atlantic BD conference. But they don't have anything like horn
clay and they aren't likely to make the leap to horn silica anytime soon.
One of the things my broadcaster kits are intended to do is make it simple
for farmers to apply all the preps because there are a lot of people in
biodynamics that ignore the horn silica and equisetum sprays. They're like
Anne and don't have a clear idea that biodynamics is a system for the soil
AND the atmosphere. Fruits don't ripen in the soil. They have to have a
robust atmosphere. If one leaves the atmosphere well's reagents out of the
broadcaster because it isn't clear how essential they are, it will create
an imbalance and that will be dangerous for the crops.
It is terrible to have to explain this to the head of Demeter. This is the
kind of thing the Demeter Association is supposed to make sure anyone they
certify knows. The field sprays aren't something supplementary. They are
the heart of biodynamics. What a mess! What a tragic waste! Can readers see
why I'm not favorably impressed with Demeter's stewardship of Steiner's
legacy? Can folks see why Demeter cannot be allowed to keep their trademark
on the word biodynamic?
