How to Build Your Own Food Replicator (last updated September 24, 2005)

Read the Disclaimer and Warning (below) again. You do all this at your own risk.

Materials needed:

Two matching tin cans
Some circular magnets
One lead with two alligator clips or equivalent
A means of checking circuit continuity
At least two matching cylindrical plastic or glass bottles or similar containers

1. Get hold of two new, matching food-grade tin cans, like two cans of the same tomato paste. Don't use cans that held rat poison, for example. Take the tops off. Empty out the contents. Clean out the cans. Don't worry about the glue that held the label on.

2. Place the magnets on the bottom of one of the cans, placing them all the same way around. If you use circular (disc-shaped) magnets, one of the flat sides will be the north pole and the opposite flat side will be the south pole. If you hold the flat sides of two magnets next to each other, if a pole faces a similar pole, i.e. both north or both south, then the magnets will repel each other, and if north faces south, then they will stick together. Put the magnets on the can so that all the magnets are facing the same way, whether it is the north pole or the south pole that is touching the can. I use five circular ones I got in a packet of 25 at a craft store, 3/4 inch in diameter and 1/8 inch (2 cm across and 4 mm thick).

2A. It is possible that the effects from taking electronic versions of things diminish after a time, and it may then be beneficial to take electronic versions of things made with the opposite magnetic polarity (i.e. flip all the magnets over on the bottom of the input can). This is still under test. It is not yet known if it is best to replicate everything twice, once at each polarity, and take the two versions together, on alternate days, alternate weeks, or what. But bear it in mind.

3. Place the other can about 7"-10" away. The exact distance is not critical, but make sure the magnets do not obviously influence the other can. You could check for influence with a compass needle, but unless you have a very big magnet it should be OK.

4. Connect the cans together with the lead. You can solder the lead on at the base, or just connect them with a lead clipped on each can. Make sure there is an electrical connection or the device won't work. The best part of the can for this is the overlapping strip that runs the length of the can. You can check this connection with a $14.99 multimeter from Radio Shack or use other means. If you don't have any other way, use two leads: clip one between one can and the positive terminal of an ordinary 9 volt battery and clip the other between the second can and the negative terminal of the battery. Touch the edges of the cans together and you should get a spark where they touch; then unclip the leads from the battery but not the cans and just clip the leads together.

5. Fill up one of the sample bottles with tap water. Bottled or filtered water may or may not work; tap water does. Put it aside--don't put it in the replicator yet.

6. Put bits of food or drink into a matching sample bottle. Do not use a different kind of sample bottle--they must match. If the food is dry, add some water or alcohol, and mix it up a bit and let it stand for a bit to allow the liquid to absorb the different kinds of food.

7. First place the food sample bottle standing up in the approximate center of the input can--the one with the magnets on the bottom. Then place the plain water sample bottle in the center of the other can, the output can.

8. Wait at least ten minutes. It is thought that leaving it longer than ten minutes will not make the output sample any stronger.

9. First remove the sample bottle from the output can, then the original food sample from the input can. Don't do it the other way round. Don't eat the food from the input sample can. Save it for a later experiment or throw it away, but do not assume it is unchanged. If you are saving it, label it in such a way that you know what it is and don't swallow any of it by mistake.

10. Label the replica sample bottle from the output can appropriately. For example "Scrambled eggs, cheese, tomato, toast, butter, ketchup, parsley: Replica or R [strength]". (Strength will be discussed later).

11. Drink some! Take a small squirt, maybe 10 drops, enough to know you have definitely taken it. Squirt it into your mouth, under your tongue. Don't take any other food or drink ten minutes before and after. It may only be necessary to take a single drop. It is not necessarily true that taking twice as much is twice as good, or even any different in effect.

12. It may take a while for an effect to be noticed. It is not known what difference it makes to take more some hours later or on the following day or days. As it says at the top, you are experimenting at your own risk. Some items may take as long as two weeks of daily use to create a noticeable effect. You may feel the urge to take another squirt two minutes after the first one: it may be best to take another squirt then. Rules on how often is best are not yet known.

13. Before your replica sample gets more than half-empty, make up another replica bottle. Example: With the Replicator wired up correctly, put the coffee replica in the input can (the can with the magnets on the bottom). Then put a fresh sample bottle containing only tap water in the output can, as before. Leave for ten minutes. Remove the sample bottle from the output can first, then the input can. Label the new bottle, "Coffee Replica [strength]". Remember the sample you put in the input can is now at maximum strength, whatever it was before. Don't think it is unchanged.

14. Put the half-used Replica Master away, and don't drink from it any more. Just use it to make up more replica samples.

15. And yes, you can make up a replica from a replica, so people can make an infinite chain of these. Provided it is done correctly. If in doubt and you think you are just getting plain, unaltered tap water, go back in the chain to the point you are certain the label is accurate. If in doubt, start at the beginning.

16. Standard science will not be able to explain any interesting effects except in terms of auto-suggestion or you being hypnotized, so don't be surprised if you go holy-molying over to your friendly scientist and he just laughs at you.

17. One option to jazz up the Replicator is to get hold of an audio potentiometer, like an old volume control from some junked radio. Or buy one new from Radio Shack for $3. Make sure it's an audio potentiometer and not a linear one. Wire it between the cans. Calibrate it in some way with a voltmeter, say from 0 (.001) to 1.0, where .001 indicates the highest resistance and 1.0 the lowest. You might find that ".4 coffee" (i.e. with the resistance set at the .4 mark on your dial) is better than ".1 coffee" or "1.0 coffee". It is not true that full-strength electronic food is necessarily better than lower-strength. It's just easier to build a full-strength-only Food Replicator.

18. One problem with using the potentiometer in the food replicator is that you can only produce one strength at a time, and it's tricky to know what the best one is. A viable alternative, which can be done without any soldering, is to get a pack of assorted resistors from Radio Shack ($5.99). This is what I did: from this pack I took resistors with an ohm value of 1,000,000; 470,000; 220,000; 100,000; 56,000; 10,000; 1,000; 100. I also used a lead all by itself, and it had a resistance of 7 ohms. Another lead, a thicker one, has a resistance of .05 ohms. So that is a pretty good range, from .05 up to 1,000,000. I took a lead with two alligator clips on it, and snipped off one of the clips, then bared an inch of wire on the lead. I twisted the wire with one of the ends of the resistor, and clipped the other end of the resistor to the can with the alligator clip. Similarly for the other resistors, each with its own lead and can. Now in one ten minute production effort I can make up ten little bottles of replicated X, each at a different strength. Mixing these together gives a bottle containing all ten strengths. I then rinse out the ten bottles and use them for the next item. This method bypasses the problem of not knowing what strength to use. If there's a liability to using this method for food, I don't know it**. Note that you can't take the bottle of mixtures and put it in the Input can, as it would only produce a replica with one strength. **Later addition: It's not recommended that you do this! It seems to be too harsh on the body. My current suggestion is to take one strength, maybe using a 1,000 ohm resistor, and see how that goes. Then maybe change it later as seems sensible to you.

19. Unless you're real good about reading the value of resistors from the color-coded stripes on each one, you should label them so you know which is which. Once you have one twisted onto a lead, you can just write the value on a small strip of paper and fix it to the lead with a piece of scotch tape.

20. (Skip this point if it's too much). The "strength" of the replica from the output can is inversely proportional to the resistance used in making it. A useful thing to quantify is not the resistance of the lead plus resistor, but the conductance, increased by a factor of a million. So a resistor with a resistance of 2,000 ohms has a conductance of 500 megasiemens (MS), and one of 100,000 ohms resistance would have a conductance of 10 MS. A "low-strength" replica would then be created through a heavy resistance of 1,000,000 ohms (conductance of 1 MS), and a "high-strength" replica from very low resistance of 1 ohm would have a conductance of 1,000,000 MS. It would not be exactly correct to say that a replica made with a conductance of 20,000 MS has a "strength" of 20,000 MS, but it's good enough for now to say it has a strength of 20,000.

21. The Food Replicator seems to be safe when only used with food, as long as you remember to eat real food as well. I started off making food items at about 1,000,000 strength. This isn't necessarily the best way to start, just the easiest.

22. I have been using TMM 1 ounce sample squeeze bottles, as I just happen to have a few hundred of them lying around. You can buy them here if you want (I don't get a commission on bottles!). Others would work as well, but make sure they are cylindrical.

23. A possible theory behind the Food Replicator and Electronic Food is similar to that explaining the workability of Homeopathy, i.e. the preparation of a homeopathic product in the classical manner involves dilution and succussion (whacking it) beyond the point where any molecules of the original substance remain. Say, for instance, the original substance is snake venom. After diluting it 1 part to a hundred and whacking it a hundred times, all done 15 times, there are no actual molecules of snake venom left, just its "essence". Whatever you might think of this theory, many, many people find Homeopathy effective, so *something* is at work on top of what's in your science textbooks.

It seems that a person is much more than just the physical body that we see, and is intimately involved with using personal and universal energy fields, which continually interact with each other. The body needs certain energy frequencies, which are available from the environment and from food. Electronic food seems to provide these frequencies, perhaps in an idealized and complete form that may not be assimilable from a fast-food lunch. If the body does not need these frequencies then nothing happens, they just do not get used. If the body doesn't need the energetic "essence", the frequencies of snake venom, nothing happens. It is not at all the same as injecting real snake venom into the arm. There are cases of people living, apparently normally, without solid food for years. How do they manage it?

Now, there is no claim here that the Food Replicator and Electronic Food is part of or belongs in the subject of Homeopathy. Your local Homeopath is doubtless a highly-trained, caring individual operating under a strict code of professional ethics and would probably freak out at the idea of a food replicator and electronic food being sloppily discussed in the same breath as his vocation. The Food Replicator is not a medical device. It replicates food.

There actually aren't any claims at all. Scientific analysis of the water in the output can would show water alone. Science today will tell you the Food Replicator doesn't work because it cannot possibly work within the paradigm of mainstream theory. Well, tough, time to change the paradigm.

When watching Star Trek and seeing their food replicator, you probably thought how great it would be to have one of those, maybe in a thousand years time. Well, this food replicator isn't as good as the one on Star Trek, but it's here now and it's yours and it's free.

Frequently asked Questions (last updated September 24, 2005)

DISCLAIMER: The statements in this blog have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. The food replicator is an experimental device and it and the electronic products it makes are not meant to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any illness or disease or medical condition. Please consult your doctor or qualified health care professional before starting ANY exercise or diet or nutritional supplement program or before using these or any product during pregnancy or if you have a serious medical condition. The device(s) and procedures described herein are thought to operate by boosting the body's immune system and to be safe if just used for food by people not taking prescription medications, but you make use of them at your own risk.

WARNING: Driving a car can be dangerous or even fatal if you are not careful, but driving safely is fine. Taking electronic food will possibly have an effect on the body that could be dangerous if you are taking prescription medications. Example: let's say you are taking prescription medication for high blood pressure, and it is working in that it is artificially driving your blood pressure down from where it would be if you weren't taking the medication. If your blood pressure is reduced significantly by taking electronic food, then continuing to take the same amount of medication might cause your blood pressure to go too low, which could be dangerous or in extreme cases even fatal. On no account run prescription drugs or homeopathic remedies through a food replicator. This device is not a toy. And this warning is not a cute marketing ploy.

Where can I found out how to build one of these ridiculous devices?
Either at blogs, or or . The most complete one is the blogspot one.

Does this device work immediately for everybody?
No. Maybe some of the people I tried it with didn't try it for long enough or were using an inappropriate strength , or maybe they were just taking electronic food items that were null to them personally, or maybe they would never benefit. I don't know yet.

There's a lot you don't know. Why don't you iron out all the bugs first and then present this as a completed work?
I didn't want to wait that long. I figured it was better to make the benefits available sooner rather than later. It's not as if you are being forced to pay me anything.

Are you going to patent the food replicator? Surely you could make millions of dollars?
No. It belongs in the public domain.

Do I have to pay anyone anything to build my own food replicator or to make electronic food?
No, not even me.

What are your academic qualifications or credentials? Why should I listen to you?
Ideas have merit--or not--independently of who voices them. It doesn't take long to build your own food replicator and try it out, and then you can determine for yourself if it works or not. Besides, you wouldn't be impressed by my qualifications.

Did you just dream this up out of thin air?
No, there is a great deal of research back of this, mostly done by others. Much of the material is freely available online. The earlier researchers just didn't think of applying it to food, or if they did, they didn't make a point out of it.

Or they didn't do it because it's impossible. Why should I bother? You're insane.
You're still reading. Aren't you even slightly curious? Why would I spend all this time and effort on a hoax that makes me look like a wacko when I'm not even selling anything and it's so easy for anyone to check it out for themselves?

My spouse is much cleverer than you and has two advanced degrees from the best universities. If this is all so simple, how come he didn't discover this?
Ask him.

You call the stuff "electronic food". Is that an accurate label?
Not necessarily, but I had to call it something and it's better than some names.

Let's see if I have this straight. The food replicator is a device that a 12-year-old kid could put together in under an hour from stuff available almost anywhere, at a cost of a few bucks, if that. He would put tiny bits of food in a small bottle in one end of the device and water in a small bottle in the other end, and then remove the bottles after ten minutes. The food replicator will have replicated and intensified the "essence" of the food into the water, and if I drink a little of the water--the electronic food--the body will act as if it had just assimilated the actual, original food in a similar quantity to that provided in a good meal. Did I get that right?
Near enough. It is not yet settled if taking the electronic food acts as if the body had assimilated the real food, or if it just satisfies the craving for that or similar food.

Are you suggesting that I should live entirely on electronic food and just abandon the real stuff?
You might want to start with substituting electronic food for one meal a day. It seems to provide the body's needs and remove that "hungry" feeling. Some people would love to lose a bit of weight but don't want to feel the continual hunger that lack of food causes. Is it possible to live on electronic food only? I don't know. After two weeks I needed some of the real stuff. But with major global catastrophes likely in the next few years resulting from "peak oil" or global warming causing the Gulf Stream to shut off or others, the possibility of the substitution becomes more and more inviting.

Man, this is ridiculous. You're crazy!!!
You already said that. Why don't you quietly check it out? It won't cost you more than a couple of cups of coffee.

I'm not at all convinced. Should I just let my kids play around with this?
Unsupervised, no. As I said in the warning, this device is not a toy.
