Erny Baron's triangle is an equilateral structure, triangle-based with three triangular
sides, preferably of aluminum components (bars or flexible foil,
or, at the least, an aluminum apex). The triangle was purported to provide a variety
of health benefits plus a miscellany of day-to-day uses. Like
pyramid power, effects are attributed to harnessing of energy
forces through its shape and space.
The label summarizes its
many purported applications:
Body and resistance builder.
Blade and brain sharpener.
Water energizer for health and plant growth.
Cheese and salterd egg maker. CHEESE AND SALTED EGG MAKER,
Battery charger, etc.
Sizes vary according to area
of use or application, small enough to place over the eyes for
a variety of visual complaints, or large enough for various anatomical
locations for a sundry of complaints: headaches, memory loss,
wound healing, hiccups, pain, etc.
During my visits in 80s, I saw many many triangles of various sizes scattered all over the house. There was always a container or two of water being 'energized.' Dead batteries were always being resurrected. I was told my father did daily doses of energizing for memory boosting.
At the peak of its popularity,
as a "brain sharpener," it was a common sighting to
see student groups going to-and-fro school wearing the triangular
contraption on their heads.
There have been no recent sightings.
