John Bedini's "Scalar Beam" device

Here's a suggestion for "scalar" experiments from a conversation with John Bedini.
Mr. Bedini encourages everyone to try this experiment, but warns us that this device
is patent applied for, so you should only build a single unit for your own use.

The brush noise from the DC motor provides a pulse signal to the coil,
which modulates the 'colliding' field pattern of the magnets and creates
interesting scalar effects within a narrow pencil-beam pattern which extends
from each face of the magnet out to a few inches.

Mr. Bedini suggests these experiments:
Purchase two identical music CDs.  Listen to both to verify that
they are identical.  Now let the "scalar beam" play all over the
surface of one of the CDs for about one minute.  You may want
to build a simple rotating platform to make this process more
convenient.  Now play the two CDs and compare them again.  Hear
any difference?   (Note, this process is patent pending, so do not
use it for any other purpose except to demonstrate the reality
of the effect)
Connect a small probe-coil to an oscilloscope, then move it around
in the beam and observe the waveforms.
Taste some wine, then put it in a small airtight container and
place it against the magnet face for a few (minutes? hours?)
Taste it again.  Improvements?   Try it with and without the
power supply connected to verify that any changes are caused by
the scalar beam and by just the magnetic field.
FROM :  Some tests I intend to try (but as yet have not!):
Place various foodstuffs in the beam then compare flavor with untreated
Grow two collections of plants, water one with normal water, water the
other with water that's been treated by several minutes??hours??
exposure to the beam.  As a control, use water which was held nearby
identical magnets but without the coil.
Aim the beam directly at a plant for many days, compare it with another
untreated plant as a control.  (Shield the magnet, or place a similar
magnet-block near the control plant.)
Sprout two groups of seeds, one treated and one untreated, and look for
differences in number, health, growth rate, etc., between the two groups.
Measure the growth of the tip of a plant stem by using a tiny lever,
mirror, and laser beam.  Graph the growth rate, then treat the plant with
the scalar beam and look for changes in the growth rate.  (Note that
this method can also be used to observe plants' realtime response to
numerous stimuli both conventional and "weird."  Fertilizer? Light?
Music? Magnetism? Pyramids? Good/Bad thoughts?)
Observe microscopic lifeforms in pond water, then expose them to the beam
and see if their behavior changes while it is operating.  Or, expose the
water to the beam for several minutes??hours??, then compare the
number and activity of lifeforms in the water with an untreated bottle.
Or, compare the effects of adding treated or untreated water to the
slide under the microscope.
Use an opamp buffer and an audio amplifier to listen to the noise output
of a capacitor which is shielded in a thick copper box, (or does a
resistor or transistor work better?) then aim the beam at the box and
listen for signals, or monitor changes to component values.  See:, Hodowanec's capacitor-based
gravity detector, for more info.
