42Plus1 - The Secret That Science Dares Not Whisper

by Mol smith


In the last few decades, the most advanced scientific minds in the world have discovered something extraordinary which impacts on everyone's lives; something which will make you evaluate everything you are and the way you think. But not a whisper has been heard about the meaning of this to ordinary people! Scientists employed in professional and academic institutions are gagged. This book explains the reasons why they are silenced, and exposes the astonishing secret they cannot tell you. The t
ruth, once known, is impossible to deny. Finally, it answers the questions of why you are here, who you are, and what the reality you live in actually is. The solutions are both profound and astonishing! If you seek the answers to these questions, this book is for you.

The 1860s Smith, Beck & Beck Transparent Injections

by HOWARD LYNK

Introduction

During the early 1860s, a series of histology slides was introduced by Smith, Beck
& Beck [Beck]: the superb transparent tissue injections were rumoured to be made inGermany [1]. Their bluish-tinted glass is their distinctive attribute, mostly size 1½x3in(38x76mm) (Figs. 1, 4). All carry excess of balsam round their covers, are never papered, and carry only simple printed pale-green labels: these look like other Beck slide labels of the time, but lack the firm’s name or address (Fig. 2).

The mounts were prepared using the recently-introduced technique of injecting fine blood vessels with transparent stains such as carmine, for transmitted light: they met with immediate acclaim.

This paper examines the early history of these slides, the technical advances that made them possible, and suggests their actual maker.
