Walter Russell accessed an extensive amount of knowledge and insights during his mystical awakening. He wrote extensively about his understandings and related scientific, philosophical, and metaphysical subjects. In this book, he talks about the nature of creation, light, life, polarity, balance, electricity, gravity, radiation, waves & vibration, and the imagination and thought projections of the Creator. These are truly some weighty topics, but Walter's text is clear and informative, even when he gets into technical topics. This book is quite enlightening and actually better than some more popular metaphysical texts. The electric universe concept is truly brilliant, and Walter Russell's understanding of creation greatly exceeded most of what scientists erroneously believe, based upon their perceptions colored by persistent illusion. The "new" physics is just catching up with Russsell's ideas.

Format: Paperback
... I am very right brained and find this book too challenging
to keep...(I flunked statistics 3 times, and barely survived
algebra). Its simply over my head. I sent it to my brother
who was a self-taught physicist and he found it quite interesting.
Being honest here. For the right person, its a very unique
book...not the usual recycled scientific information, I am told.
Walter Russell I feel "channeled" this information from the next
dimension and those who have open minds and willingness to see
things from new points of view would probably like this book.
He has a lot of diagrams. For example No. 38 shows the "four
rivers of light". Some chapter titles include: Knowledge vs.
Thinking, "Unconsciousness-Sleep and Pain", "Electrical Awareness", "Sex-Conditioned Opposites", "Light", "The Law of
Balance", "Electricity Defined"....you get the drift!

Like Russells other books, 'The Secret of Light' seeks to outline the laws that govern our universe in a language that inquiring minds are able to grasp and understand.

And like in Russells other works, he provides some of the most accurate, succint and enlightening descriptions of what the universe is and who we are.

This book is thick and dense with profound meaning.

Any reader will be amply rewarded for contemplating its meaning and message.

Read the book, put it down, pick it up and read it again.

This is an incredible book which should be read over and over. Walter Russell was an illuminated Master who wrote from his Heart. One of the greatest artists and scientists to have walked on Mother Earth, he writes about Truth and the Infinite. The Secret of Light will illuminate You!!!

This man Walter Russell has changed my life! I am saddened that this marvelous man is not more known. He was a man before his time, if there is such a thing, (I don't believe there is) for the knowledge he shared with the World is MIND blowing! And in his time not many were ready for this Truth, and many are not today. Russellian Science gives you your power back. We have been lied to for far too long in the Sciences and it is now time to blow these lies into oblivion where they belong. I can't recommend his work enough; there are no words that could convey what this man has done for the World if they would only open their Minds. For that still small voice we have all heard of is Mind, is Creator/God... Whatever you choose to call The I AM, there is only ONE, and we are HE. If you have ever wondered where you came from and who is this Creator, or where did HE come from, well it will be answered in Russell's books. I have a few of his writings now and can't get enough of it. What an amazing man he was,is... Helps us to understand how our thoughts really do affect our World! Hey I thought I knew but when I started learning this Science I realized I knew very little. IF you never do anything else for yourself please check this man's works out. There are some sites online that offer some of his works for free, you just have to read them online, and the home study course is there to download. I personally like to have books but I also do a lot of research online. But having the hard copy is what I prefer. Peace to all my Brothers and Sisters.

Russell was looking for the single cause for everything and in this book he expalins what he found. You may also want to read "The Man Who Tapped into the Secrets of the Universe" which is
about Walter Russell. He applies his findings to
explain chemical elements, light, gravity, etc...

Russell explains the fundamental make-up of our universe and our part within it. In great depth he describes the nature of reality and how in the end all we see and all we are is Light. This book is extremely inspiring but can be difficult to comprehend. But the more work you put into reading this book the more you get out of it. The answers to some of the most troubling existential questions are answered and explained. I recommend this book to anyone who has asked the questions, "Who am I?" and "Why am I here?"

Walter Russell (1879-1963) was a veritable polymath, a man who excelled as an artist, architect, musician, philosopher, and scientist. Walter Cronkite called him the "Leonardo Da Vinci of our time," and Nikola Tesla was so taken with his theories that he reportedly said, "Lock them in a safe for a thousand years until mankind is ready for them."

In this classic text, "The Secret of Light," Russell (like a Ken Wilber of science and spirituality) provides a unifying theory of Everything--the All and the all, God and the universe. Marrying physics, metaphysics, and cosmogony, he provides revolutionary answers to explain the relationship between the Mind and Light of God and His cosmic creation, the universe, including man. But it's perhaps a misnomer to call Russell's answers a "theory"--because he presents them as if they were apodictic facts, universal laws or principles that he discovered by tapping into the Divine Source. It's as if he were the man from whom God hid nothing, and is simply functioning as a Mouthpiece for the "Man Upstairs," telling us the way it really IS.

Although I don't claim to understand all of Russell's various involved physics theories--most of which conventional physics rejects--I do understand his core thesis; that God is still, or motionless, Mind and Light, and the universe, which derives from God, is a product of stepped-down dynamic dual light-waves based on the two principles of charge or pressure and discharge or release of pressure. Because these two principles are in a constant state of imbalance, the universe, including man, can be understood as dynamic creation forever seeking balance or rest (which can only be found in God, not his universe, which is a light-wave illusion, like a movie projected on the screen of Reality).
