What If Wednesday: The Kirlian Cyanotype
As previously noted, Professor Palindrome is/was an inventor, traveller and Chrononaut. Besides creating a successful aetheric steam engine and photonogram (See: Professor Palindrome’s Chrono-Postcard1 ), he also developed the Kirlian Cyanotype process. Alas little is known about his methods and attempts to rediscover the process have not been successful. It is assumed that knowledge of aetheric physics and quantum alchemy is required, studies which are absent from current educational curriculum.
Palindrome’s name & history form a bit of a puzzle. It appears that there was both a Palindrome & Palindome. At times they appear to be the same person, while at other times there appears to be two distinct individuals.Palindrome seems to be going both forward & backward through time. As to which is the inventor and which is the time traveller, well, ……… it is even unclear who is first recorded in the history books. The same archival source will be different each time you look at it. Palindrome references suffer from Schroedinger Observational Effect, and are altered by observation.
Kirlian Cyanotype appear to be a means of recording the a Kirlian field as a Cyanotype photo print. Semyon Kirlian, in 1939 accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a high-voltage source, an image is produced on the photographic plate. The technique of Kirlian Photography has also been known as “electrography” and “electrophotography”. The nature of this field has been hotly debated ever since it was widely publicized in the early 1970s.
Palindrome appears to also attempted to create a similar aetheric process that produced an image on a glass metallic plate. While this image is very striking, the aetheric energy has left bubbles & scratches embedded in the plate. Those who have handled the plate claim that not only does the image become a holographic 3D impression, but that they hear aetheric tones of the photographed subject. Further study is required to better understand the nature of this lost photographic process.
