In 1960, though he would live another 11 years, Rife filed an affidavit for a court case that read like a personal obituary: “Having spent every dime I earned in my research for the benefit of mankind, I have ended up a pauper, but I achieved the impossible and would do it again.” ■
Barry Lynes: “Rife employed a system of lighting as unknown to microscopy today as it was in the 1930s. Not simply uncommon, it was UNKNOWN.”
Mark Simpson: “Research is needed to determine if one can actually blow bugs through the air using a radio frequency carrier wave. This has yet to be proven by modern Rife researchers.”
Gerald F. Foye: “Unfortunately the name Rife was, and still is, applied to just about any and all electronic frequency healing devices. Little of it is true Rife technology. The charlatans have stepped in.”
