E-mail to Amy Jones of The Sun (June 13, 2014): An Englishman Invented the Wireless
2014-June-13 Filed in: Science
I am enjoying The Sun's free historic edition for 22 million homes "THIS IS OUR ENGLAND".
May I please bring your attention to the list of 'What are the greatest English inventions?'.
There is a glaring omission, Sir Oliver Lodge, who was born in Stoke on Trent. He invented the wireless in 1894.
There is a plaque at the Museum Lecture Theatre at Oxford University on the very spot where Sir Oliver sent the first ever radio signal.
This brilliant scientist is not being given the credit he deserves in England where the Church and the state are still established. This is because he dared to link the study of life after death with natural and normal forces in the universe. He linked it with subatomic physics - forces that are normally out of range of our five physical senses. This culminated in the publishing of his paper 'The Mode of Future Existence' in 1933.

The Mode of Future Existence - 1933 Lecture by Sir Oliver Lodge FRS (1851-1940)This article is censored from all large-circulation papers and magazines throughout the world because it links the subject of survival after death with the scientific discipline of subatomic physics - the study of the invisible part of the universe.
