1988:  Finding many inch-long army worms  in part of our Lost River Valleys lawn,  we decide to  
experiment  with a method mentioned in Tompkins and Bird's "Secrets of the Soil". This ancient
ritual from India, known as Agnihotra, is best performed while the sun passes through the zodiac
sign of Taurus__  between  April 21st and  May 21st, or at second best, wi thin a month just prior
to, or after those dates.

Receiving a "go" from H.S.,  I first gather some of the worms and put them in a glass jar with an
open mouth,  allow-ing their short lives to expire. A few days later,  some unprinted paper or dry
leaves are placed on an  aluminum foil pie pan with the now dead,  dry and brittle worms on top. At
this point  I enter the Zone and call upon the various devas of the garden  and of the worms and
plants involved,  stating my need and intent  to free the yard  of these desttructive pests.

I then set the paper and dried bodies on fire. When cool enough to handle,  I crumble up everything
to make a "pepper",  then stating my Intention aloud with  Held Breath and Unconditional Love,  ask
that the experiment be in keeping with Spirit's purposes  and for the highest good of all involved.  I
become as one  with the still living worms in the soil,  and sprinkle  this residue  upon the infested
lawn.  Detaching from the ritual,  visualizing a  beneficial outcome, feeling the joy of it and giving
thanks, I close the intention and pay no further attention for ten days.

Two weeks later, we transplant some flowers in that area of the yard  and find only one or two
worms. Within a month, all the pests are gone and don't return the following year. This method
works because of the "
Black Body Effect".

                                  THE BLACK BODY EFFECT
In what is destroyed by fire,  the corresponding negative force  is pitted against  the reproductive
powers  of that object/insect which was burned. These negative forces then radiate thet certain
portion of the EM spectrum from the insect,  into the soil , the atmosphere,  or into whatever
absorbs  or ingests  the burned residue. Fire is a
tra- tnsmuting substance,  causing a change  into
another  energy level  within th e
4th dimension.The "Black Body Effect" involves infrared radiation.
Every living creature emits its own infrared vibration. This is the primary radiation human bodies
emit  when charged up by the
 incoming breath. Even a planet has its specific vibrations and
tone.  Infrared radiation is on the  lower end of the   
light portion of the EM spectrum and can easily
be converted into sound. These are formative forces on which life is built and maintained.

The infrared radiations increased their vibrations after the worms' demise and the insect repelling
Agnihotra ceremony further intensified them  via burning.  Similar insects,  coming near the
"peppered" soil,  left the area after sensing the  "death" vibrations.  A few "scavenger" type insects,  
however are actually attracted to infrared vibrations. Microwave devices radiate infrared rays.
