“… I had actually demonstrated Einstein’s theory on the physiological level. I had succeeded in slowing down my watch to some degree, and there was evidence suggesting that my physiological processes were equally slowed down by my practicing of techniques inherent in what I had named ‘The System.’” – Gene Savoy (Sr.)

My father’s experiments into sun gazing lead him to make that statement in chapter one of  his popular book Project “X”: The Search for the Secrets of Immortality, published by Bobbs-Merrill some 35 years ago. The research he undertook was fascinating, to say the least. It involved, as the title of the book suggests, an inquiry into the proverbial fountain of youth.

His search took him to South America where he vigorously investigated the Andes and Amazon for clues to unlock the secrets of longevity known to the Incas, in particular, who were described by Spanish explorers to have lived to great ages.

“Stories of the Inca king Huayna Capac provided one of my earliest clues to the puzzle,” he wrote. “The Inca looked straight into the sun with the naked eye, although he was admonished not to do so. … the Inca continued to gaze at the brilliant orb and contemplate its nature.” Why were these so-called “children of the sun” able to look upon sunlight without harm while others, such as some yogins of India, would stare at the sun but eventually go blind (p. 7)?

The work of German physicist, philosopher, and psychologist, Gustav Fechner (1801–1887), also intrigued him. Fechner had stared at the sun, going blind, but eventually regained his sight. His experimentation resulted in his acquiring a new kind of vision by which he could see a force field around living things. This ability compelled Fechner to conclude that, as my father put it, “true freedom of any creature can only be found in the soul, whose awakening enables the individual to see life as it really is, not just as it appears” (p. 8).

My father drew a connection between the solar viewing activities of Fechner and the Inca emperor. Merging the concept of sun gazing to gain expanded sight and insight with the theory of relativity postulated by Einstien — as exemplified by the idea that a clock transported to the sun would run at a slightly slower rate than on Earth — he set out to demonstrate by scientific application of ancient practices that one could transport oneself to the sun, thereby slowing down time.

It took my father 10 years from his first viewing of the sun in 1945 to learn the secret of how to look into it for short periods of time without harming himself. Shortly thereafter he moved to Peru to continue his experiments into ancient solar science. But, according to his writings, his early investigations resulted in a reverse effect: he was gaining time instead of losing it at, as he put it, an alarming rate —  aging rapidly rather than extending time! This experience resulted in high fevers and weakness of body.

What he eventually discovered was that the absorption of solar energy into the nervous system via the eyes floods the human’s electromagnetic field. This field, and the body itself, becomes “saturated” with radiation, resulting in the types of fevers he experienced and in the speeding up of time, which, of course, is relative. The secret to slowing down time lay in “reflecting” or “emitting” the acquired energy outward by means of techniques to bring balance or, as he put it, polarization (p. 43). Once this is achieved, proper exposure to sunlight can result in the development of a sixth sense, a new “vision,” that causes a heightened consciousness and awareness and, therefore, an expansion of self heavenward, so to speak.

“If heaven exists,” my father posited, “if that other world spoken of by Christ is real, then it must hold some position in the scheme of things. … Light/heat/radiation can be converted into matter, forming the material universe. … The universe, being in a state of continual change, is transformed from light to matter and back again. Is it logical to assume that solar beings, like angels, fly upon wings of light and manifest themselves to man within the vision of his inner eye?” (p. 44).

In the ancient and not-so-ancient Americas, hallucinations and altered states of mind have been achieved by the taking of narcotics like ayahuasca, chuchuhuasi, coca, and other hallucinogenic plants, such as the peyote mushroom or the huilca seed. Through The System outlined by my father over a half-a-century period, expanded inner vision without the degenerative effects of drugs to the brain and nervous system, can be achieved with proper use of the most ancient, affordable, and available natural product: the sun.

Many explorers have set out on daring treks, risking life and limb, in search of the mythical and elusive fountain of youth that could “convert old men into boys.” Little did they know that the true treasure lay not in the mountains, jungles or great waterways of the New World, but in the secret knowledge shared between the sun’s rays and man’s own vision.

“Gold is the sweat of the sun…” – ancient Inca saying
