About Marcel Vogel

Vogel Tools are carefully crafted using geometrically exact specifications researched and created by a unique and gifted man, Marcel Vogel. Marcel was an IBM senior full time research scientist for almost 27 years. He was one of the most productive new patent inventors in IBM's Data Products Division history. His inventions and patents included liquid crystals in the field of magnetic recording media, and the creation and development of rare earth phosphors. He was also was granted many patents in the field of Opto Electronics. After IBM, he retired and created his own laboratory, Psychic Research, Inc., and was dedicated to research of subtle forces and energies.

Marcel spent the last 17 years of his life doing pioneering research into the relationship between quartz crystals and water, including the structuring of water for purification purposes, the structuring of wines to rapidly age them, the measurement of energy fields around a crystal, and the therapeutic application of crystals and crystal devices. More than $500,000. worth of equipment was donated by IBM to Marcel at the time of his retirement. Marcel assembled the Zeiss during his 27 years at IBM, which was used to detect magnetic defects and errors. Marcel also had a Cary Model 15 spectrophotometer, a radionic instrument known as the Omega 5, and other incidental equipment, some of which was donated by the Stanford Research Institute. These devices were used to study the fields seemingly undetectable by the otherwise impressive standard scientific equipment.

Marcel's early life was filled with fascinating curiosity and discovery about life. As a child he explored in a home built laboratory with his father, attempting to duplicate what made the fireflies in his backyard glow. At the age of twelve he synthesized the chemical compound that produced a chemi- luminescence that matched the light of the firefly. Throughout his high school and college years Marcel researched the existing publications and papers in the field of luminescence, and published a book, The Luminescence of Liquids and Solids. Soon after, Vogel Luminescence Corporation was formed. Marcel sold Vogel Luminescence in 1957 to Ultra Violet Products and then joined IBM.

Marcel also conducted fascinating research on plants. He found that the plants were acting, storing the energy of his thoughts and intentions like batteries. He found “…there is energy connected with thought. Thought can be pulsed and the energy connected with it becomes coherent and has a laser-like power.”1 Marcel went through a change from being a purely rational scientist to becoming a spiritual or mystical scientist. What Marcel discovered was the greatest cohering agent is love. Of course, the notion of love was considered an unscientific idea. Marcel considered love a pure force, as emotion, but an experience of something beyond emotion, like gravity, a coherent force present everywhere in existence. He felt without exploring this force a vital part of scientific investigation was missing, precluding the discovery of the subtle aspects of life. He observed that plants were acting like batteries, storing the energy of his thoughts and intentions. He said: “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.”

Marcel observed and photographed the process of growing liquid crystals and wrote: “When cool, if a liquid crystal state exists, the melt goes into a birefringent state under polarized light which can be readily seen under a polarizing microscope. From this state the sample will then crystallize into the solid state. In the course of the study of this state under the microscope I noticed a remarkable event, namely that before the melt went into the liquid crystal state, a blue flash of light took place and then immediately after that, the sample transcended into the liquid crystal state.” This process was videotaped and the moment of transition photographed. What appeared on the film was the geometric form from which the crystal grew and developed, and the flash of blue light witnessed through the microscope was the transfer of information from the level of light-coding to the physical plane. This process from metaphysical literature had never before been observed and photographed.

In quartz crystal, trillions of tetrahedron shaped molecules that form a unit cell link together and in a spiraling motion layer by layer until the crystal is complete. The primary unit cell contains all the information needed to generate the hexagonal or six-sided form. Marcel believed that once the crystal has ceased growing, the intelligence matrix of the crystal disappears until we infuse it with our own energy, by the transfer of thought energy and breath. In 1974, he woke one day with a pattern of the Tree of Life in his mind's eye; he was unfamiliar with this symbol and actually saw only the pattern of a rectangle with a triangle at each termination. As he found out more about the geometry of the Tree of Life he was able to shape quartz into the shape suggested by his vision, along with other shapes such as 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 he designed a four-sided quartz crystal with pyramidal terminations, with one tip more acute, called the “firing tip”. The faceted crystal was a three dimensional representation of the Tree of Life. These crystals have come to be known as Vogel-cut® crystals. The human body is comprised of liquid crystal systems in the cellular systems; bones, tissues, cells, and fluids of the body contain crystalline forms. The body's tissues, fluids, and bones tend to be disorganized and incoherent when disease or stress is present. Through the use of a specifically designed and charged crystal coherence can be restored.
