After sufficient experimentation I have concluded that silk interacts with scalar waves in the same manner that metal interacts with electromagnetic waves. Both are conductors but if properly configured can also act as reflectors or barriers. Several sources support this conclusion:
1) John Keely, “mad” scientist of the 19th century who did amazing things with sound, was able to power one of his machines by sending energy down a silk thread. The thread was loose and had a key hanging from it in the middle, showing that physical vibrations were not transmitted, rather something else was.
2) German mystic Karl von Eckartshausen, speaking on animal magnetism and electricity (subtle energy), proposed an experiment by which one dressed from head to toe in silk and raised one’s arms to the sky:
Since you are dressed in silk you are insulated, therefore you will be loading yourself with positive-electricity and thereby, you have an effect on anybody who has a minus-electricity.
After you have loaded yourself or charged yourself, you load water with electricity. This water becomes very useful. When you wash yourself or moisten your hands with this water and rub your hands together, you can set small objects into motion such as needles on a string with your fingertips without touching them, or even by just staring at them.
3) In occultism, psychic implements like wands or crystals or scrying mirrors are best stored in silk coverings or pouches, as this is said to amplify their numinous power.
4) The Cassiopaeans mentioned the protective qualities of silk in context of shileding against mind-muddling control signals:
Q: (A) There must be some way to make the body less vulnerable to these things.
A: Silk clothing and headgear.
Q: (A) I know! Aluminum pyramids! [Laughter.]
A: With silk lining.
5) Tom Bearden mentioned that tubular dielectric fibers can serve as scalar beam barriers. Perhaps silk fibers fit this description.
So it seems that silk has special properties allowing the transmission, accumulation, or shielding of sub-electromagnetic (scalar) waves.
Experiments showed that while grounded metal foil did not attenuate a particular signal, silk stopped it completely. Therefore the signal under study was not electromagnetic in nature and could only be scalar. Dirt and oils interfere with the attenuating properties of silk, so care must be taken to keep it clean.
Why silk? Perhaps this was an evolutionary advantage – the silk worm’s cocoon may have protected it from stray scalar fields that could interfere with its transformation into a moth. Or maybe the silk worm is a product of ancient genetic engineering.
Unusual applications exist for this material. For instance, since certain alien and military implants operate on scalar rather than electromagnetic spectra for remote monitoring and programming, wearing silk when practical would serve as a countermeasure: a silk balaclava worn while sleeping will attenuate scalar mind programming signals by functioning like a faraday cage.
