He was also known for his obscure theories on magnetism. Little is known of his childhood, aside from the fact that he was not wealthy and achieved only a fourth-grade education. Edward was a sickly boy, and often spent his time inside reading books; he dropped out of school because it bored him, but did develop a yearning for knowledge. Then, after contracting a case of tuberculosis , Leedskalnin moved to the warmer climate of Florida around , where he purchased a small piece of land in Florida City. Over the next 20 years, Leedskalnin putatively constructed and lived within a massive coral monument he called "Rock Gate Park", dedicated to the girl who had left him years before. He used various basic tools, several made from timber and parts of an old Ford ; first he built a house out of coral and timber, then he gradually built the monuments for which he is famous.

Ed Leedskalnin - Magnetic Current Illustrated. Uploaded by anon Document Information click to expand document information Description: E. Leedskalnin, Rock Gate, Homestead, Florida USA This writing is lined up so that when you read it you look East, and all the description you will read about magnetic current, it will be just as good as your electricity.
Following is the result of my two years experiment with magnets at Rock Gate, 17 miles Southwest from Miami, Florida, between 25th and 26th Latitude and 80th and 81st Longitude West. First I will describe what a magnet is. You have seen straight bar magnets, U-shape magnets, sphere or ball magnets and Alnico magnets in many shapes, and usually a hole in the middle. In all magnets one end of the metal is North Pole and the other South Pole, and those which have no end one side is North Pole and the other South Pole.
Now about the sphere magnet. If you have a strong magnet you can change the poles in the sphere in any side you want or take the poles out so the sphere will not be a magnet anymore. From this you can see that the metal is not the real magnet. The real magnet is the substance that is circulating in the metal. Each particle in the substance is an individual magnet by itself, and both North and South Pole individual magnets.
They are so small that they can pass through everything. In fact they can pass through easier than through the air. They are in constant motion, they are running one kind of magnets against the other kind, and if guided in the right channels they possess perpetual power. The North and South Pole magnets they are cosmic force, they hold together this earth and everything on it. To be of practical use they will have to be in great numbers. In permanent magnets they are circulating in the metal in great numbers, and they circulate in the following way: Each kind of the magnets are coming out of their own end of the pole and are running around, and are running in the other end of the pole and back to its own end, and then over and over again.
All the individual magnets do not run around. Some run away are never come back, but new ones take their place. The earth itself is a great big magnet. In general these North and South Pole individual magnets are circulating in the same way as in the permanent magnet metal. In a permanent magnet bar between the poles there is a semi-neutral part where there is not much going in or out, but on the earth there is no place where the magnets are not going in or out, but the magnets are tuning in and out at pole ends more than at the Equator.
Now you get the equipment and I will tell you so you can see for yourself that it is in the way I have told. Get a permanent magnet bar four inches long. A U-shape magnet that is strong enough to lift from 10 to 20 pounds. An Alnico magnet about 3 inches long, 2 and a half inches wide, one inch thick. Hole in the middle and poles in each end, several feet in length of hard steel fishing line. Line when it is not in coil it stays straight and a soft steel welding rod one-eighth of an inch thick and 3 feet long.
From the fishing wire and the welding rod you will make magnets or compasses, and if you hang them up by fine threads by at the middle and keep them there they will be permanent magnets.

Edward Leedskalnin’s Writings / Booklets
When one thinks of iconic 20 th century pioneers in the fields of engineering and electromagnetism, the genius of Nikola Tesla usually comes to mind. And it all began when he immigrated to the United States from Riga, Latvia at the age of 26, heartbroken his teenage bride-to-be Agnes Scuff, left him the day they were to be married. Upon moving to the U. When he moved it he hired a truck and a driver, but somehow loaded the slabs onto the truckbed alone, under the cover of night, reconstructing them by himself in their current location. Leedskalnin had a fascination with magnetism and developed an interesting worldview based around it. In addition to creating Coral Castle, he published several pamphlets outlining a universal theory of electromagnetism and how it pertained to life on Earth.
Little is known of his childhood, aside from the fact that his parents were not wealthy and he received only a fourth-grade formal education. Edward was a sickly boy who often spent time reading books, helping him to develop an inquisitive mind and life-long yearning for knowledge. It was suggested that he learned stonemasonry from his father and practiced this craft in Latvia after coming of age. At the age of 26 he was engaged to marry Agnes Skuvst who was ten years younger. He then decided to emigrate to North America. After looking for suitable work around the East Coast until August, he relocated to the Pacific Northwest , which was experiencing a logging boom.
