THE METAL-BENDERS” by JOHN B. HASTED
Classical physical force fields behave in a predictable manner which can be expressed mathematically by equations of vector algebra. The simplest static fields become weaker as we depart from their source, for example proportionally to the inverse square of the distance travelled. Time-varying fields are associated with wave-motion, and situations such as standing waves can arise, in which the variation of force with distance is not a uniform decrease with increasing distance from the source, but, rather, a periodic variation in a certain direction. Other more complicated distance effects are to be found in physics.
What distance effects are to be found in metal-bending phenomena? We might suppose that they differ from other physical fields in that there is some participation by the unconscious mind of the subject. They could be influenced by psychological factors.
My experience has been that the unconscious mind of the subject plays the key role in placing the quasi-force fields which bend metal.
Evidently there is comparatively little bending of metal more than a few feet away from the subject. On the other hand, it is possible for the subject to ‘focus’ the field onto a particular point. Sometimes the subject feels that the force does not come ‘from’ him but ‘from’ outside him; is some outside entity responsible?
Although the Nicholas Williams data were examined for dependence of signal magnitude on distance from subject, they showed a very wide spread. In the radial horizontal configuration, which is the most suitable for analysis, the range of variation of strength with distance seems to be more or less random.
