GATES OF THE MIND

The Proven Psychic Discoveries of

JOSEPH SADONY

Cover Notes

THROUGHOUT his life of eighty-three years the late Joseph Sadony, scientist, philosopher, inventor and poet, searched for the truth about man, God and the universe. "Seek the truth," he said, "and when you have found it, follow it, for it is God." Perhaps, more than any other man of our time, he found the truth for which all men, to greater or lesser degree, seek. What Sadony sought - and found - was a universal law applicable to all science, nature and human nature. Through his studies of atomic energy, gravitation, electricity, light, heat, magnetism and other scientific matters, he determined upon the unity of all things: atoms, molecules, human beings, the world about us, and galaxies of stars. All, including the body and mind of man, are one, each and all constantly receiving and emitting radiant energy.

In his laboratories on his eighty-acre estate on White Lake, Michigan, near Muskegon, Sadony spent many years in scientifically proving his theories, many of which he knew intuitively. Behind his experiments and writings was the basic purpose to free the mind of man from the restrictions of environment, faulty thinking, false intellectual concepts and all other impediments to a true understanding of himself and the cosmos. He saw in man an extraordinary potential which such freedom could bring. His own intuitive abilities - powers which he said are possessed by everyone, though usually dormant - enabled him to predict future events accurately, to "see" happenings in far-distant parts of the world. On one notable occasion, through his mental powers he was able to influence and direct the captain of a ship to another ship in distress during a violent storm on Lake Michigan, with the result that many lives were saved. This dramatic rescue was documented, as were many of his "psychic" accomplishments, and presented on a nation-wide radio broadcast.

Although Sadony was well known to scientists, philosophers and world leaders - among his hundreds of correspondents he numbered Gandhi, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Kipling, Tagore, King Gustav V of Sweden, King George VI of England and Admiral Byrd - he avoided personal publicity and was little known to the general public. This volume, a condensation of his autobiography, in which he explains his "gifts" and his theory of Radiant Energy, the source of all life, will come as a boon and deeply significant revelation to all seekers after truth.

About the Author

Joseph A. Sadony was born in Mountbauer, Germany, February 22, 1877. He came with his parents to the United States when he was a small boy, and spent his childhood in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Later his family moved to Chicago, where as a teenager he was able, through his innate mental powers, to solve crimes which had baffled the Chicago police. Soon the police were making regular use of his special abilities. Later he spent a period of time in the West, where he conducted for President Theodore Roosevelt a special investigation of conditions on Indian reservations. In 1906 he married Lillian Mary Kochem of Kentucky. The same year he bought the eighty-acre estate near Muskegon, which he had visualized in precise physical detail, although he had never before seen it, and which was to be his home for the remainder of his life. It was on these grounds that he established his Educational Research Laboratories, where he was to conduct his scientific work until his death in September, 1960. Sadony was active in civic and fraternal work in his community and for many years wrote a daily column, "Give Thought," which appeared in the Muskegon Chronicle. He is survived by his wife and two sons, Joseph Junior and Arthur J.
