Spooky2 is a new entry in the frequency generator field, a compact device powered by sophisticated software that invites favorable
comparison with the Atelier Robin F100 series.
There are some differences.
It's a lot less expensive than most other such
devices — about 10% of the cost of an F165. Also, it can't be run standalone —
it requires the (free) Spooky2 software, downloadable from the Spooky website.
The generator transmits via contact mode (handgrips or pads), a plasma tube, or remotely,
using small remote transmitters available as accessories. Einstein referred to remote transmission as "spooky action at a distance,"
from which the device's name is taken.
generator has two output channels, but they aren't independent. The second one can be modified according to criteria you specify (adding and/or multiplying by a specific
factor, changing the waveform, or performing other manipulations), but it can't run an entirely separate program. However, considering the low cost, if you wanted
multiple independent channels, you could buy nine or ten Spookys for the cost of an F165 and run them
all via the software (which can drive up to 127 of them).
driving multiple generators, however, you can't run more than one frequency
derived from a main frequency — for example, using Jeff Sutherland's
programs and running two simultaneous scalar backfrequencies. You could run
one on each of two generators, but you'd have to run the same main program on
each one, and getting a double dose may not be advisable (in fact, the
software has a setting to skip concurrent duplicate frequencies).
alternative, if all the frequencies have the same dwell time, is to put the
first frequency at the end of the program on one device, so that machine A
starts with the first frequency and its derivative and machine B starts with
the second frequency and its derivative. At the end of the dwell time — say,
3 minutes — machine A moves on to the second frequency and machine B to the
third one. So machine A would repeat each frequency with its own derivative
immediately after machine B was done. Whether
this would be equivalent to running them simultaneously is unclear.
The software uses "arbitrary waveforms" to create nine different types of waves instead of just the square and/or sine waves typically
found on other machines. Some of them are reportedly more effective than square waves, but it would require systematic experimentation to determine this. The generator
is available in three versions, with maximum frequencies of 5, 10, or 20MHz, at progressively higher prices. However because Spooky uses the software rather than the hardware to produce waveforms,
the lowest- frequency, least-expensive generator (5MHz) is sufficient for all
rifing purposes, according to the designer.
main software screen
The distinguishing feature of this software is that instead of having to write small programs,
as with the F100 software, you just click buttons or fill fields to implement various functions. It may, in fact, have more functionality than the F100
software, but how useful this is is another question. It can seem a little daunting initially, since it has options for dozens of functions you'll probably never
use — because it's hard to tell what effect they have, if any.
offers over 6,400 built-in programs from various lists, but the best way to obtain frequencies (as I indicate at the end of the
review) is to dowse or muscle-test for them and create your own programs. However, in the Spooky software, creating a new program (or revising an existing one) is more cumbersome than it needs to be.
A screen for an individual channel
One problem is that Spooky doesn't automatically save programs with all the settings you've specified. You can save some of the
settings, but not all of
them, through a clumsy manual process. This means that when you reopen a program, you
may have to redo some settings. If you're using a lot of non-default settings, this could be inconvenient.
Another issue is that the only way to move a program from the main list to the
run list is to
double-click it. If you're selecting a lot of programs, this is a prescription for carpal tunnel. It would be useful to be able to
add a program to the run list by selecting it in the main list and hitting Enter.
The Advanced screen, for controlling
multiple generators and other functions
A final issue is that programs in the main list have a name (reflecting the malady they're intended for) followed by frequencies. When you transfer a program to the run list, it shows only the name. And when you actually run it, from another screen, it shows only the frequencies.
It would be preferable to be able to see, on each screen, the frequencies and
the program(s) they belong to.
These aren't major drawbacks, but they are noticeable. Hopefully a future update will remedy them.
A small, inexpensive remote unit is available that transmits frequencies via scalar
waves using a fingernail clipping, eliminating the need to be near the generator
during treatment. The
photo at the beginning of this review shows two remotes connected to a Spooky2, using adapters (available
separately) to eliminate the need for the supplied cables.
Another accessory, the Pulse, scans the body to provide a reading similar to the DIRP on an F-SCAN. I have reservations about the usefulness of the DIRP (see the
review), and I found the Pulse even less effective. It shares the same disadvantages as the DIRP and seemed to take longer and be less convenient to use.
Despite the comparatively minor
disadvantages described above, the versatility and low cost of the Spooky2 make it a worthy competitor in the rife field and an effective way to try rifing without spending a lot of money.
