The Man Walter Russell – His Life and His Work
The Enlighted (1921 – 1946)
In 1921, at the age of 49, Walter Russell experienced his Illumination into the Light of Cosmic Consciousness during a thirty nine day and night period. His family even consulted specialists in order to decide if he had to be admitted into a psychiatric clinic. Fortunately these doctors were very impressed by his recordings and sensed, that something great was happening.
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.
In the meantime he gave numerous speeches and for 12 years he lectured upon the Law of rhythmic interchange and ethical principles in business to the officers and salesmen of IBM. Together with other notable figures of his time he built the Twilight Club, which very successfully gave positive spiritual impulses for the betterment of humankind. Their efforts resulted in notable service organizations like the Rotary Club, The Lions Club, the Boy Scouts of America and many others. They stood up for a right of education, for minimum wages, controlled advertising and much more, getting big support from Adolph Ochs, the owner of the New York Times at that time.
