Open Source Radionics – Part 18 – Build your own AetherOne – Video Tutorial

Here is finally a complete tutorial which explains step by step how to build your own radionics device based on the AetherOne.

The purpose is to have a digital radionics device in order to experiment with and to understand the basics.

More videos will follow.


  • Arduino (Uno, Due or Mega)
  • LEDs, red, 2 x green, blue, ultraviolet and infrared (or replace both with another color if you don’t have uv and ir)
  • resistor of 600 to 1k ohm
  • breadboard
  • cables of different length and color (pre-cut wires)
  • voltmeter (optional)

There are two programs you need. One will be uploaded into your Arduino via a USB cable and the other runs on your PC, Windows, Linux or Mac.

Download the open source project here … or optional if you know how Git works then pull the most new version from the repository.

Download and install the software for the Arduino:
This application is needed to make run the microcontroller and communicate with the PC.

Download and install the processing software:
You will need the processing application for making run the AetherOne on your PC.


Connect your Arduino via USB to your PC and open the file AetherOneForArduinoUno.ino:


Set the testmode to true as shown in the video:


select the board (Arduino Uno or whatever you have … Mega works too)


and upload it to the Arduino:


Then build it according to the schematics or video (there are 3 videos, from 001 to 003).


Test the LEDs connections by resetting your Arduino. All LEDs should blink for a short time.

Then put the software again in normal mode (testmode = false)


and upload it again


Now it is ready to be used with the processing application (you can close the Arduino software, you don’t need it anymore).

Import the ControlP5 Library in Processing, by selecting the menu entry Sketch->Import_Library->Add Library …


Select the ControlP5 and click install button.


Then open the AetherOneProcessingV0005.pde file.


You see the processing application with the loaded source and now click on run button.


On your screen you should see the AetherOne application:


Note that this signals should be on, Arduino Connected and Hotbits. They should be on after a few seconds:


If not the connection is not established and something is wrong. Maybe you forgot to set the testmode on false and to upload it again to the Arduino or the Arduino is not connected to your PC.

Now it is ready to use. Write a intention. The field is not used yet, but it helps to focus. For example analyze the health state of your garden.


Then select a database by clicking on the button SELECT DATABASE


Choose the James Tyler Kent Materia Medica and click on open.

Now focus on your intention. If you feel that your focus has reached a peak click on the button ANALYZE.

The result of the analyze is displayed on the right screen.


The remedy Gratiolia was choose by the random process (based on true random numbers in a quantum state from the Arduino … more on that in a new post). The counter is 10. The next remedy has a counter of 8, a difference of 2 which is good enough.

Now my approach is to look it up in the Materia Medica and to make sure it has really a relevance. Gratiolia is similar to Chamomilla. In our garden there are thousands of Daisy flowers, more than in any other garden in our city. The garden has maybe a problem with the people who live in it’s vicinity, it needs to counteract with it’s own energy to rebalance the energetic difference. The Daisy, also known as Bellis perennis, is of the family of the Asterales and Chamomilla too. But the Gratiolia is not of the same family. It’s familiy is Plantaginaceae. No problem, the message is important. The similarity between Gratiola and Chamomilla is great enough. Chamomilla feels disturbed, wants something but does not know what, similar to Gratiola.

In we can read about Gratiola

A typical situation is that of an illegal child of a nobleman and was raised by a low class family. They feel special, but are invisible and treated as such. They feel humiliated for their special circumstance. They can have a family that is of high rank and feel they have to hide their negative side. They are afraid that their family will lose its high rank and special position in society if the negative side of the family is published openly. It is situations of corruption or blackmail.

It seems the garden is disturbed by negative forces from our neighbors. Some of them feel overly special, but they are not satisfied to live in a “middle class” or “lower class” environment. According to Paracelsus (a alchemist of the Renaissance), the medicine you need grows in your vicinity. You just need to go out and look what grows there. The Asterales is a remedy especially for me. My remedy is Millefollium. But it does not grow in my vicinity, only other plants of the same family, like the Daisy and the Taraxacum officinale (dandelion). The similarity is then “good enough“.

If you want to broadcast the energetic remedy to your environment, write “Gratiola D200” in the field MANUAL RATE. I use homeopathy and the D200 is a strong enough potency for garden environment. If you would broadcast a gem essence, then you would probably not use a potency. Some practitioners say that they deliberately do not use a potency information in order that the target extracts the right potency by itself. This is absolutely ok in radionics.

And write also “MY GARDEN” in the OUTPUT field. Both fields, MANUAL RATE and OUTPUT, are combined and a sequence of light signals are generated by the Arduino during the broadcast process.


After the broadcast I leave the Arduino connected to the PC and before I start a new session I click on CLEAR in order to refresh the memory of the crystal.

Friends it works! This post should enable you to build your own and experiment and share your experiences.

Additional notes for the Arduino Mega:
You can use also the Mega, because both has the same pins.

The Uno with pins GND (Ground), 12, 7 to 2 …

and the Mega also with same pins (highlighted in yellow) …

Additional notes for the breadboard:
The breadboard I used in the video is a little bit small. Some boards can be combined to one bigger board, because they have connecting elements at their edges.


The combined breadboards gives enough space to the crystal.


In order to use two breadboards, you need to connect the groundings of both boards together.


Update notes from 22.06.2018
A new version of the AetherOne is available, with the version number 0006. The applications screen size is smaller and fits better in laptops screens.

  1. does not work it gives an error when it runs processing software!!!
    No library found for controlP5
    Libraries must be installed in a folder named ‘libraries’ inside the sketchbook folder (see the Preferences window).


  2. Hi. Numerical Rates can be set in the box that has the name of MANUAL RATES, Example 239488 corresponding to Blue Bell Bush Flower Essence, only the number= 239488.Thanks

  3. Please note that there is a new version of the AetherOne, with the version number 0006. It has several bugfixes and the screen resolution is smaller, which fits better in small laptops monitors.


      1. I just tested, and it works !!! I send the indexes separated by example space: (3240 4567 8970 4560 etc), all indices are stored in the crystal, separately, I used a Radionica machine to test and read the information field! I have not yet tested compound indices, example: Gratiola D200, but I will test. Braces and thank you!


  4. Hi,
    Is there a place to report the bugs i have found? I have a videoclip + some debug text of the program when it is freezing/crashed.



  5. Hi Ken, I seem to be having some problems. When I run 0006 I get an error message immediately stating “The value of the field AetherOne processingV0006 Radionic Elements is not …Radionic Elements” line 7. When I run 0005 I get the same message but with V0005 and I also get the error “The value of the variable “Alpha” is not used” line 166. I reinstalled the processing 3.3.7 and made sure Windows 64 was what i needed. What should I try now?

  6. Ken, I have it installed on two computers. Just tried 0006 on my work tower. It seems to all be functioning. It does show the “The value of the field AetherOne processingV0006 Radionic Elements is not …Radionic Elements” line message in errors. I do have some other questions: When should Grounding be clicked? Immediately after hitting clear? Is that done for each rate broadcast? Also the grounding button does not light up during that. The Broadcast button lights up. Is it only necessary to click on connect once? Should that be first or after the grounding? How best to use the General Vitality button? I’m seeing really wide swings, after an analysis and broadcast it showed mine go down 220 points. On broadcasts should you write the name and rate or just rate. Will this program be able to broadcast multiple rates at once? Thanks!

    1. Hi Tim!

      Grounding can be clicked when one does not feel grounded enough = not relaxed and focused enough for a analysis. So you click it before beginning a new session.

      Technically the grounding is also a broadcast for yourself, therefore the broadcast lights up. But you have found a bug, the grounding signal should go on. I fixed that in the version 0007.

      Clearing is required at the end of a session in order to release the energy from the crystal. If you want to broadcast in “silent mode” do not clear as long as you feel it is required. The silent mode is without blinking of LEDs or sending data through coils. Its just the residual energy remaining in the crystal. I feel that this could last for a few days, if not even weeks. A broadcast that last too long could be harmful, it generates too much pressure on the organism. So best practice is to clear. Analogue devices has a switch for broadcasting, but no crystal. They broadcast only as long the switch for broadcast is on (example Hieronymus machine).

      The connect button is a special help if one does not feel the connection to the target. Example: a person asks for a analysis, gives you even a written permission and a hair sample, but they have a trauma which generates a kind of shield around them. Then the connect button generates a light pressure which overcomes the shield energy. When someone is in a Thuja state this could be the case. Thuja hides his dark secrets, family trauma, abuse etc, then you can use the connect function. Test it on plants, you will feel a pulling of your energy towards the plant and a strong activation of your third eye. The disconnect button is useful to dissolve the connection if it is too strong. Else just use the clear button. (I need to fix here a bug too. The clear button should reset the connection)

      Regarding General Vitality, read this blog entry … very easy and interesting. I personally use it as you would use it with analogue devices. First check GV before analysis, as a general analysis, or your first analysis. Then after analysing rates, you can check again which of the 10 entries is a perfect match NOW. Don’t check the GV for each rate after more than an hour. Check it when your are still in that one session, focusing on the patient or plant or whatever. The GV is a relative value. So it needs to be checked each session again. Here is also a good link:

      Your GV could be 200 and it does not mean that it is bad. It just a relative value (relative to the following checks you will make regarding rates during one session for example).

      The rate could be enough if you use only one system of rates. Example in a rate book 100-100 could mean Lycopodium and in another its the rate for Hydrogen. If your focus is on just one rate system, then use the numbers of the rate. But as in my case I always write the name discarding the rate-code, because I find the name more powerful then a number.

      Yes the program will be able to broadcast multiple rate in the version 0007, but be patient, I need time to implement it. Indeed this is the requisite for broadcasting images.

  7. Thanks Ken, that clears up a lot of things. Looking forward to your updates! So by silent mode, do you mean broadcast while the device is not hooked to the computer? Also regarding the progress bar. I think it only moves during the connect function. Is that a bug too? Is it ever useful to connect to yourself?


  8. HI,

    Is there a please to post request? here?

    Because i would like to get the INVERT button back as an option.
    It would also be great to have the option to simple copy/paste from the clipboard/cursor in the Input/Outputfield.
