A man named Alex Chiu claims to have invented what he calls an "Eternal
Life Device." It basically consists of two separate devices: finger
rings and foot braces. Worn when one sleeps, these devices are purported
to make one live forever.
I hardly know where to begin
on this one.
Here is one of the "testimonials":
Alex Chiu, I would like
to ask you a question. Are you Jesus Christ the second coming? I have read
many bible prophecies and prophecies of Norsdadomus and Jeane Dixon. In
all of their prophecies stated that there will come a man who gives eternal
life to mankind, and that man is you. I have try your rings and used it
for 3 months now. It worked, I am becoming younger now. My wrinkles on
forehead actually disappeared!! Its wonderful Only one question. Are you
Jesus ?? Please explain to me when you have time. Any, Mr.Alex, thank you
so much. You have brought mankind a wonderful, unbeatable gift.
Here is Mr. Chiu's response:
No I am not. I am somebody
As another part of Mr. Chiu's
"testimonials" is proof that a yoga instructor ordered $50 worth of his ELD: a photo of her check,
complete with her full address and telephone number.
I have one friend who
purchased The Eternal Life Rings from me few month [sic] ago, reporting to me
his mental illness has improved dramatically.
Among other things, Mr. Chiu
claims to have had the highest IQ in his school. Not just for the
year it was given, mind you, but in the school's history!
He is a Chinese-American
born in California, and claims to have a reasonably rational job in "Japanese
sales." What possesses a 27 year-old man to claim that he has single-handedly
solved humanity's deadliest fear? Acupuncture and the study of what
he calls "energy."
The only real "science" on
Mr. Chiu's page is his attempt at explaining his device's properties.
One has to read
it to believe it.
Here is an excerpt from Mr.
Chiu's philosophy of life after death:
My theory is that if one
dies, his spirit, I call it frequency, should still be around. Without
the body, frequency travels very fast. When the frequency desires to see
a certain person or desires to goto a certain place, it can travel very
fast to the person or to the
place that it has in mind. It goes through wall [sic], it travels
as fast as electrons.
Mr. Chiu also has a page
about a "teleportation device." He designed this device because "we
need teleportation very badly since everyone now lives forever."
At the end of this page,
Mr. Chiu adds a frightening and mysterious statement:
If we don't invent teleportation,
China will throw nuclear bomb everywhere.
Does he know something the
rest of us don't?
But Mr. Chiu's inventions
are not all as hairbrained and fraudulent as his ELD. He has a patent
on a "Calculator Mouse," which is not just a good idea, but is functionally
useful as well.
