are recognized several wave forms: Compression (which acts as a
Longitundinal Wave), Transverse Wave (90ƒ to the Longitundinal Wave)
and Raleigh Wave (circular motion 90ƒ to the previous two). Other
models of wave activity include the use of metaphors such as coiled
springs that compress and expand, penduluums swinging to and fro and
various oscillating bodies such as seesaws and water waves.
Figure 9.5 - Transverse Wave
9.3 - Wave Motions

of those motions having little if anything to do with WHAT the wave is;
HOW it moves and WHY. These models demonstrate the effects of periodic
motion while the cause goes mostly unnoted if at all.
the conventional view, there are two aspects or phases of a wave
considered merely as positive and negative polar phases. These may be
modified as to power, envelope, attack, suspension (sustain) and decay
elements as the waveform becomes more complex. We also know complex
waveforms are composite constructs of numerous aliquot parts of
partials, harmonics and overtones of the fundamental.These aliquot
parts include secondary and tertiary (or more) summation and difference
tones resulting in a complex waveform.
Conventionally a sound wave is considered as a compression wave whose
activity is usually likened to a periodically compressed and stretched
coiled spring and/or swinging penduluum. This is a mechanical force
against force model. This model is predicated on the idea of an outside
sound source compressing a medium by molecular bombardment; or as
molecules set in motion, striking another molecule repeatively much
like billiard balls. After the strike comes an alternate relaxing or
expanding of the media to a state of rarefaction - of a less dense or
compacted state or condition.
While orthodox waveform models demonstrate the effects of periodic
motion as a measurement they convey little if anything about WHAT a
wave is, WHY it is what it is - and HOW it does what it does. SVP deals
with causes which bring about periodic rhythmic motions, being
themselves effects of more primitive causes.
9.4 - Elements
of the SVP Model
- SVP recognizes the previously mentioned
wave forms but not as a priori or causitive factors but as measurements
of effects. More on the SVP view can be studied in my book The
Physics of Love
In the SVP view a wave is more complex, being composed of several
seemingly discrete parts or functions acting as one composite complex
function. A wave is a highly complex continuous reciprocating
interexchange from one primary state or condition to an opposite state
or condition. These two phases are a reciprocating interexchange
between integration and disintegration. In short a wave is a periodic
change from a state or condition of harmony (attraction/contraction) to
a state or condition of discord (repulsion/expansion). This periodic
change of state is caused by and is the effect of the contained
relative and proportional values of the aliquot parts of the vibrating
or oscillating body or aggregate.
A vibration is the complex motions and states associated with internal
rotation, spin and associated rhythmic changes of state. In this
discussion vibration is the same as spin or rotation.
An oscillation is the complex motions and states associated with
external rotation, spin and associated rhythmic changes of state. In
this discussion oscillation is the same as orbit or revolution.
These changes of state are dual in nature. For each there is an
opposite. An increase in one is a decrease in the other - always
reciprocating. As frequency, for instance increases wavelength
decreases. This reciprocating attribute is axiomatic. There are several
of these attributes or aspects that occur concurrently, phasing in and
out of each other during the completion of a wave cycle. A wave then is
the combination of all of these interchanges happening all at once.
Perhaps the easiest way to visualize this complex interchange is to
conceive of a primary duality as a planet in elliptical orbit or
revolution about a center, its primary point of focus. This orbital
revolution should be seen as two distinct condition changes completing
a single orbit. At its point of furthest distance the planet is
orbiting at its slowest speed and spinning at its fastest speed. At its
point of closest approximation the planet is orbiting at its fastest
speed and spinning at slowest speed. Russell
to this complex change of state as "winding speed into
whatever vibrating or oscillating medium, are performing the exact same
polar interexchanges however their rates of interexchange may differ.
These swappings of speed for power are not the only interexchanges.
Below is a list of dual experiences, states or conditions (synonyms).
All of which are periodic and reciprocal interexchanges. Some of these
are from Russell's book Genero-Radiative Concept

that reflect more of Keely's vocabulary.

They are the opposite poles of being and constitute the two principles
by the harmonious interweaving of which the beautiful system of
creation is constituted, and its economy worked out. Such a view, far
from being contrary to the canons of science, is even the necessary
complement of science. That unity, which is the last word of science,
must always include two objects, existing in contrast of all. The
law of couples, of opposites, of reciprocal action between two
contracted yet homogeneous and harmonizing elements, each of which
opens a field for the other, and brings it into action, is of universal
extent. In the organic world, also, no less than in the purely physical
and chemical, all is framed according to the same law of couples. In
the sphere of sensibility, in like manner, everything turns on the
antagonism of pleasure and pain, and in the moral sphere of good and
evil. Nor is the world of pure intellect exempt from this law, but on
the contrary displays its influence everywhere. Hence faith and sight,
identity and difference, finite and infinite, objective and subjective,

of ideas. In a word, every system of thought and of things, when
complete, present as its basis two co-ordinate elements, the
reciprocals of each other; or one parted into two reciprocally, and by
the harmonious antagonism of both the beautiful web of nature is woven.

universal analogy of science sanctioned MacVicar in the characteristic
he thus arrived at as that of animated nature, for if inertia, or the
obedience to pressures and impulses from without, be the characteristic
of matter, then that which is needed as the other term to complete the
couple is just what has been insisted on, viz., self-directive power,
the power to cause pressure and impulses. Here is shown the symmetrical
relation in which this power, when viewed as the characteristic of the
whole animal kingdom (which plainly points to man, and culminates in
human nature), places the animal in relation with the vegetable and the
mineral kingdoms. Of mineral or crystals, the characteristic is simply
self-imposing or self-manifesting power. They are, so to speak, merely
insoluble seeds without an embryo. To this, self-developing power is
added in plants, and forms their acknowledged characteristic. While of
animals the characteristic, according to the view here advanced (the
same seed-producing, self-developing, powers continuing) is
self-directive power superadded. This relationship between these three
kingdoms of nature is as homogeneous and symmetrical as is necessary to
appear to be legitimate, and is a true expression of the other of
these two principles, the inert and the self-directive, the necessary
and the free, we obtain the materials for a universe, without disputing
the fact of human liberty and bringing into suspicion even the
possibility either of morality or immorality. If man be really free as
well as under law, in this union of body and spirit, then in human
nature heaven and earth truly embrace each other; and no reason appears
why, as the ages roll on, our own free thought may not have the run of

Keely's discoveries are preparing the way for? [Keely

been known since
the late 1800s that bodies or aggregates in periodic harmonic motion
are mutually attracted to one another. Conversely, bodies in aperiodic
or discordant motion are mutually repelled. Bjerknes
phenomena at the Paris Electrical Exhibition in 1881. Keely, a few
years later in 1894, published his laws describing this phenomena with
the Laws of Attraction and Repulsion.
9.8 - Law of
Attraction: "Juxtaposed coherent aggregates
vibrating in unison, or harmonic ratio, are mutually attracted."
vibrating in unison or simple multiples of unison are said to be
harmonic or sympathetic to one another. Bodies vibrating or oscillating
in harmony will aggregate thus forming larger bodies. This mutual
aggregation, accumulation or gathering together is caused by action of
Keely's law of sympathetic association(qv) or simply the Law of
Affinity(ies). The greater the degree of harmony the greater will be
the attraction (affinity) between bodies or aggregates.
In a complex molecular structure and its vibration signature are many
diverse discrete frequencies (aliquot parts) originating from its
constituent atoms and their subatomic components. Each discrete entity
will have its own fundamental frequency and signature. The more of
these discrete signature frequencies harmonize with those of another
molecule and its constituent parts the stronger will be the attraction
and bonds between molecules and their constituent parts.
Molecules may not at times have unison or multiples of unison relations
between fundamentals but may have harmony between frequencies of their
constitutent atoms. In such a case there will be atomic attraction and
perhaps bonding but not molecular attraction and bonding. This same
interstitual bonding may occur on other levels of the molecule's atoms
and sub-components. In this event the attraction will be between atoms
(atomic attraction) and/or between subatomic particles being a quantum
attraction or as Keely called it - "interatomic attraction". This same
principle holds for sub-quantum centers which Keely called etheric
attraction or etheric sympathy.
During the contraction and attraction phase energy increases, range of
orbital motion decreases, spin decreases and density of the medium
increases, among other attributes. See left-hand column in Polar States Table.
9.10 - Law of Repulsion:
"Juxtaposed coherent aggregates vibrating in discord are
between vibrations of bodies or aggregates a mutual expansion or
repulsion occurs whether on the molecular, atomic, subatomic or etheric
levels. Repulsion may occur on molecular, atomic or subatomic levels
just as attraction as related above.
During the expansion and repulsion phase energy decreases, range of
orbital motion increases, spin increases and density of the medium
decreases, among other attributes. See right-hand column in Polar States Table.
Vibration then is a periodic change from a state or condition of
concord (contraction) to a state or condition of discord (expansion).
These two states or conditions are 1) contraction or attraction (to a
center) and 2) expansion or repulsion (away from a center) caused by
relative harmony or discord from within the vibrating aggregate.
A "body" is a tightly bound aggregate of its constituent parts just as
a gas is a loosely bound aggregate composed of particles or bodies
maintained in a tenuous manner. The only difference between a "solid"
body and a tenuous gas is the degree of harmonic coherence or
attraction/repulsion between the discrete bodies of that gas. There is
a preponderance of harmonic attraction in a "solid" body while there is
a preponderance of inharmonic repulsion in a tenuous gas.

& Oscillatory Nature of Matter
- In order to
understand how these two alternating states or conditions exist, behave
and interact to and with each other the intimate structure and dynamics
of vibrating and oscillating bodies and aggregates must be understood
vibratorily. In other words a body or aggregate is a result of polar
wave dynamics and motions and not solely an attribute of so-called
inert matter set in motion by outside forces. Matter, in all its varied
forms (molecule, atom, photon, etc.), is an effect of periodic and
reciprocal motions of polarized energy states. These are naturally
occuring polar states present in all matter and energy. These polar
states have discrete qualities and interact together and are the
subject of this paper.
In Sympathetic Vibratory Physics (SVP) useage a vibration is distinctly
different from an oscillation. While all bodies or aggregates may
vibrate within themselves not all bodies or aggregates oscillate about
a center though they all have this potential. These two periodically
changing concepts are paralleled in the spin (vibration) of a planet
around its axis and its orbiting (oscillating) around a central sun.
Each planet has its own center around which it spins and another center
about which it orbits. Hence there are two distinctly different classes
of periodic motion: vibration and oscillation.
9.10 - Vibratory
and Oscillatory Motions
or aggregates vibrate within themselves creating, according to law, a
complex vibration signature or chord or waveform composed of multiple
discrete rates of vibration or aliquot parts.
- Law of Corporeal Vibration: "All coherent
aggregates when isolated from like bodies, or when immersed or confined
in media composed of matter in a different state, vibrate at a given
ascertainable pitch." Keely, 1894
9.14 - Law of Harmonic
Vibrations: "All coherent aggregates are
perpetually vibrating at a period-frequency corresponding to some
harmonic ratio of the fundamental pitch of the vibrating body; this
pitch is a multiple of the pitch of the atomole." Keely, 1894
[atomole = discrete unit, quantity or quantum of focalized or
centralized vibration. Etymology breaks atomole in "unit of power".]
vibrating bodies or aggregates oscillate about a center creating,
according to law, a complex oscillation signature or chord or waveform
composed of multiple discrete rates of oscillation or aliquot parts.
- Law of Corporeal Oscillations: "All coherent
aggregates not isolated from like bodies, oscillate at a
period-frequency varying with the tensions that augment and diminish
the state of equilibrium." Keey, 1894
9.17 - Law of Sympathetic
Oscillation: "Coherent aggregates immersed in a
medium pulsating at their natural pitch simultaneously oscillate with
the same frequency, whether the pitch of the medium be a unison, or any
harmonic of the fundamental pitch of the creative aggregate."
9.11 - Vibratory
and Oscillatory Motions, side view
oscillating bodies possess a signature or complex series of sub and
super harmonics or partials. These sets of relative frequencies
(constituting its vibration signature) are developed according to law
(addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and are of two
basic types of seemingly of opposite qualities - harmonic (concordant)
and inharmonic (discordant). When harmonics are thusly derived from
arithmetical methods they are called Summation Tones and Difference
Tones. Other Resultant Tones or harmonics derived arithmetically are
"multiples" (times two, squaring) and divisions or halves (divided by
two, square root). Because these signatures are created and governed by
basic laws of arithmetic they are not accidental or by happenstance.(4)
Keely used the term chord in place of our use of the term vibration
signature. For indeed a collection of relative frequencies or pitches
is a chord of discrete tones or aliquot parts making up a compound
sound or complex waveform.
Chord: Three or more tones sounded together.
applied to the vibration frequency spectrum.
- Harmonically created signature/chord -
- Law of Harmonic Pitch - "Any aggregate
in a state of vibration develops in addition to its fundamental pitch a
series of vibration in symmetrical sub-multiple portions of itself,
bearing ratios of one, two, three, or more times its fundamental pitch."
- Inharmonically created signature/chord -
9.22 - Law
of Cycles - "Coherent aggregates harmonically
united constitute centers of vibration bearing relation to the
fundamental pitch not multiples of the harmonic pitch, and the
production of secondary unions between themselves generate pitches that
are discords, either in their unisons, or overtones with the original
pitch; from harmony is generated discord, the inevitable cause of
perpetual transformation." Keely, 1894
or aggregate has
simultaneously both states or conditions of concord and discord.What
determines the overall condition of concord or discord is the
preponderance of one or the other state. A center may have
preponderantly more harmony than discord or more preponderantly more
discord than harmony within its signature or chord of vibration. Which
is to say a relationship between the notes or discrete aliquot parts of
that chord or signature. These relationships between parts or notes of
a chord are governed by rules and laws as are found in music theory.
These rules and laws of music theory are not part of this paper.
When these states are in balance the vibration signature or chord is
said to be in equilibriun wherein an equation of vibratory or
oscillatory forces is established. During such an equation of polar
force the net result is said to be neutral but should not be considered
as having a null or zero value. When not in balance a preponderance
exists either positive (contracting to
center) or negative (radiating from center).
- Acoustic Forces
discrete yet interconnected and inseparable activities of every sound
vibration or oscillation. He documented this view in his
- Law of Force - "Energy manifests itself in three
forms: Creative, the vibrating aggregate; Transmissive, being the
propagation of isochronous waves through the media in which it is
immersed; Attractive, being its action upon other aggregates capable of
vibrating in unisons or harmony." Keely, 1894
three active or
dynamic states or conditions of any and all vibrations are:
sound source, such as
a tuning fork, creates a condition of vibration and oscillation. Thus
the tuning fork is the creative sound source. The air surrounding the
tuning fork transmits or conveys that periodic motion. Thus the air is
the transmissive medium. The creative vibrating and oscillating
aggregate has an attractive component that acts upon or has an effect
upon other aggregates. For instance a second tuning fork of like
frequency receives and absorbs modulations of the air into itself and
begins to resonate sympathetically. Because of the Law of Harmony the
vibrations and oscillations of the second tuning fork is said to be
attracted to the vibrations and oscillations of the first tuning fork
or vibrating aggregate.
To put this triune acting law in perspective we may consider a radio
receiving a catchy tune from a radio station. The tune is broadcast
(creative) into the air where it is transmitted (transmissive) to
listeners who respond (attractive) by tapping their feet or humming
along. Or a window pane may go into resonance with certain discrete
pitches of the music by virtue of sympathetic response (synchronization
of harmonic pitches). This action and reaction is also govverned by law:
- Law of Sympathetic Oscillation - "Coherent
aggregates immersed in a medium pulsating at their natural pitch
simultaneously oscillate with the same frequency, whether the pitch of
the medium be a unison, or any harmonic of the fundamental pitch of the
creative aggregate." Keely, 1894
creative aspects are already mentioned and discussed under
Signature/Chord. These are the inherent eigenfrequenices (naturally
occuring or existing frequencies) and activated vibrations from
striking, sympathetic stimulation and bowing, for instance. The created
chord or signature is composed of three "invisible" yet tightly cohered
(undifferentiated or harmonized) vibratory parts. The harmonic
(attractive or passive), the enharmonic (transmissive or active) and
what Keely called the Dominant which is the root or directing condition
or influence that governs the other two. This Dominant condition is
what Keely called a concordant attractive sympathetic stream between
Neutral Centers. It is the same as gravity whose active state he called
gravism, again covered by law:
- Law of Vibrating Atomolic Substances - "Atoms
are capable of vibrating within themselves at a pitch inversely as the
Dyne (the local coefficient of Gravity), and as the atomic volume,
directly as the atomic weight, producing the creative force
(Electricity), whose transmissive force is propagated through atomolic
solids, liquids, and gases, producing induction and the static effect
of magnetism upon other atoms of attraction or repulsion, according to
the Law of Harmonic Attraction and Repulsion.
phenomenon of Dynamic Electricity through a metallic conductor and of
induction are identical. In a metallic conductor, the transmission is
from atom to atom, through homologous interstices, filled with ether,
presenting small areas in close proximity. In crystalline structures,
heat, which expands the atoms, by twisting them produces striae,
increases the resistance, etc. Between parallel wires and through air
the induction takes place from large areas through a rarefied medium
composed of a mixture of substances, whose atoms are separated by waves
of repulsion of various pitches, discordant to electric vibrations; the
said atoms sympathetically absorb the vibrations and dissipate from
themselves, as centers, concentric waves of electric energy which
produces heat and gravism." Keely, 1894
9.29 - Law of Transmissive
Vibraic Energy - "All oscillating and vibrating
coherent aggregates create, in the media in which they are immersed,
outwardly propagated concentric waves of alternate condensation and
rarefaction, having a period-frequency identical with the pitch of the
forms of transmissive energy can be focused, reflected, refracted,
diffracted, transformed, and diminished in intensity inversely as the
square of the distance from the originating source." Keely,
The transmissive vibrations are generally what are studied in orthodox
methods. These are, for instance, the waves seemingly traveling through
the air as in music and waves seemingly traveling through solids such
as sound through a door being knocked on. Conventionally, the sound
source signature and received signature are sometimes considered in
science and engineering but not always as coincidents or associated to
9.30 - Propagation
Function and Rates
- Fill a given volume with beach balls. Fill the space between the
beach balls with marbles. Pour sand into the volume filling in all
remaining space between the beach balls and marbles. There will be a
point reached where no more sand can be added. Yet one could pour quite
a bit of gas into this volume. Each of these substances represents a
given frequency range extrapolating with diameter and substance (mass).
Each of these ranges is discrete from the others. If all were put into
vibration there would be a chord of vibrations emitting from this
volume. This chord would be the chord of the mass of the volume. SVP
refers to these different frequency bands as ranges, realms and
dimensions. Each has it's own frequency range and hence propagation
rate. The vibration range would propagate through a contiguous media of
it's own range at a different velocity from the other ranges. Taking
Keely's repetitive use of Etheric, Atomic and Molecular ranges we can
then see there are three distinct vibration ranges
and concurrent propagation rates (depending on the
vibrating mass of course) .
the effects a transmitted vibration or sound vibration has on objects
within its range of influence (acoustic or sound field). This
phenomenon is sometimes misunderstood and mislabeled as absorption.
Should any object in that range of influence (acoustic field) have
within its own naturally occuring vibration signature (eigenfrequency)
a pitch that is equal to any of the created and transmitted pitches it
will respond sympathetically. (Of course some degree of inharmonicity
may be overcome to some extent by FORCE but why use force when and
where none is required?) These are then harmonic pitches (of unison, as
also multiples or divisions of unison) and will go into synchronous
sympathetic resonance with the impacting external vibrations. If the
receiving or absorbing object is naturally harmonic to the transmitting
object and the transmissive waves an attraction between the two will
result in direct proportion to the sound force, quantity and quality of
the harmonicity. This behavior is in accord with the
- Law of Attraction - "Juxtaposed
coherent aggregates vibrating in unison, or harmonic ratio, are
mutually attracted." Keely, 1894
a wave train or
periodic series of sound vibrations and oscillations is alternately
attractive and repulsive the objects are alternately attracted and
repulsed. The repulsive phase is governed by the
- Law of Repulsion - "Juxtaposed coherent
aggregates vibrating in discord are mutually repelled."
The two above laws are at the heart of all vibratory and oscillatory
motions. These two laws describe the basic polar states of all
vibrations and oscillations. The combined actions of the two seemingly
opposing states are always considered in every situation. If
preponderance appears in one state over the other the overall polarity
is of that preponderance. This bi-polar state has been sometimes
described as the Bjerknes
resonance is an alternating attraction and repulsion between the
creative aggregate and the receptive aggregate. The mode of
communication between the two is by sympathetic vibration.
Sympathy is the coincident harmony between separate bodies or
aggregates vibratorily speaking. When vibratory components
(discrete frequencies) of their chord signatures are in unison or
simple multiples of their fundamentals sympathy is established and
vibrations and oscillations between them will be sympathetic
vibrations and sympathetic oscillations. The more of these
discrete signature pitches are in sympathy (forming unisons)
determines the degree of sympathy or harmony between bodies or
aggregates. The phrase "the more the merrier" works well here as does
"birds of a feather flock together".
An example of this transfer of polar energy is a window pane resonating
in response to an outside sound source such as a passing airplane,
large truck or sounds from within the building such as air
conditioners, music and people. According to Keely there is no other
way for energy to be transferred from one body to another. A sound
source simply vibrates or oscillates. If the medium in which it is
immersed is sympathetic or a component of its signature is sympathetic
it will respond to the excitation and convey that excitation from
source center to recipient or target center. If any object within that
vibrating media is also sympathetic, either in unison or multiples of
the fundamental, it will respond sympathetically. The higher the
degrees of sympathy from signature/chord to signature/chord the greater
will be the evoked response and the less energy required to initiate
such response. This phenomenon of sympathetic transfer of condition or
information is nowdays being explored under the heading of quantum
Concordant sympathy is attractive being an attractive affinity between
centers. This mutually cohering force is by degrees or discrete
quantity or quanta. Our modern concept of gluon, conceived as a
quantized attractive force, is an attempt to identify and quantify this
attractive force or mutual affinity but lacking an overall vibratory
conceptualization as herein presented.
A sympathetic relation between centers is a Sympathetic Neutral
Affinity - from neutral center to neutral center. This sympathetic flow
is nowdays being studied as quantum entanglement. In other fields it is
known as scalar function and is deemed as part of the vacuum as no
"particle" is evident but operates from Neutral Center to Neutral
Center. This sympathetic flow is undifferentiated and undetectable by
instrumentation. Further Keely referred to these Sympathetic Neutral
Flows as flows of Undifferentiated Mind Force. In its neutral (polar
balanced) state this sympathetic flow is quiet and nonactive. When
polarized it becomes the creative element of all we see beginning with
"Luminiferous ether," he writes, "or celestial mind force,
a compound inter-etheric element, is the substance of which everything
visible is composed. It is the great sympathetic protoplastic element;
life itself. Consequently, our physical organisms are composed of this
element. This focalizing, or controlling media, of the physical, has
its seat in the cerebral convolutions; from which sympathetic radiation
emanates. This sympathetic outreach is mind flow proper, or will force;
sympathetic polarization to produce action; sympathetic depolarization
to neutralize it. Polar and depolar differentiation, resulting in
motion. The true protoplastic element sympathetically permeates all
forms and conditions of matter; having, for its attendants, gravity,
electricity, and magnetism; the triple conditions born in itself. In
fact, it is the soul of matter; the element from which all forms of
motion receive their introductory impulse." [Keely
and His Discoveries]
modulation is doable because of the natural occuring sub and
super-harmonics of any frequency. Thus it is possible to reach super
high frequency ranges without actually having equipment that can
directly produce those frequencies.
- Neutral (focal) Centers
two bodies when
sympathetic, will mutually attract each other to a point of coincidence
determined by each body's degree or strength of concordant sympathy.
The point of mutual attraction will be somewhere between the two
bodies. If more bodies participate in the mutual attraction a point
will be established by vectors and strengths of the individual
concordant flows of sympathy. This point of convergence is called a
Neutral Center or a Center of Focalization of Vibratory Forces. Also
called a point of convergence of centralizing forces.

The Neutral Centers are a point in space and time, free of motion. Yet
paradoxically these centers by their nature of being free of motion are
a pivot point that switches polarity (which is to say, state or
condition of concordance and discordance). They are then extremely
active and dynamic, being the point of maximum tension, pressure and

Secret of Light
matter is desirous
of sympathetic association to a dominating center. This power over
distant matter is called gravity and the form of gravity that exerts
its activating influence at a distance Keely called gravism.
Indeed gravity is a sympathetic force. In fact it is this sympathetic
condition inherent in matter.
"Gravity is nothing more than a concordant attractive
sympathetic stream flowing towards the neutral center of the earth.
This force is inherent in all visible and invisible aggregated forms of
matter, from the very birth of a planet, around whose center the
molecules cluster by the sympathetic affinity which is thus induced."

condition known as
gravity then is an embodiment of the Law of Attraction. These
sympathetic streams assimilate each other in a centripetal motion to a
center. These streams Russell referred to as the Father Force in
activity and are the same as Keely's Celestial Force. We may then
conclude all matter is a combination or assimilation of these centering
forces held in abeyance by their very vibratory natures. All forms of
matter have this characteristic.

sympathetically absorb the vibrations and dissipate from themselves, as

into centrifugal depolar forces according to the Law of Attraction and
Law of Repulsion. These two forces are the same forces but in a
different state or condition or degree of concordance and discordance.
The greater the concordance the greater their mutual affinity or center
seeking tendencies. The greater the discordance the greater their
mutual repulsion or center fleeing tendencies. These two forces are
always reciprocal and proportional. The center is the switch or gate

of Force - "The same thing may be said as to the
force of repulsion, or the centrifugal force, changing to one of
gravitation. So that, since the centripetal and centrifugal forces,
with relation to the center of force, are continuously undergoing a
change, or interchange, the one for and into the other, they can,
together, be but modifications of one and the same force, of which the
center of force is the key or germ." Walter Russell, Atomic
Neutral Center then
is like a fulcrum under a seesaw or the point of suspension of a
penduluum. On one side are the incoming concordant forces spiraling
toward the center and the other side are discordant forces spiraling
away from the center. These two seemingly opposing forces are actually
the same force but in a different condition of harmony (sympathy). The
center then is the point of maximum polarization under high polar
tension (energized neutrality or full pontentiality or charged). The
furthest reaches of the center are the zone or realm of least
polarization or depolar neutralization or discharged state. The
"outreach" of the center is determined by its sympathetic strength or
power and the sympatheticity of the surrounding medium. This reach or
field Keely called "sympathetic outreach" and extends over the domain
of the Neutral Center over which it is ruler and prime director. This
outreach may be a solar system, a molecule or the human body.
9.16 - Center
- Center and Periphery - "A
center of introductory action is necessary in all operations of
Nature." All structures require a foundation. This neutral center is
molecule, every mass, every moving body in space, every solar system,
every stellar system, EVERY ROTATORY SYSTEM, is built about a NEUTRAL
CENTER. It is the indestructible unit around which all that we
recognize as matter is built. Immovable itself, it moves all things.
Indestructible itself throughout infinity of time, it creates all
things. It produced and preserves the incalculable energy of motion of
the entire Universe. It bears the unthinkable burden of the mass of the
Universe. It is the most wonderful thing Man has discovered in the
Universe since he discovered fire.
take a planet of say 20,000 miles diameter and should displace a
portion of the interior so as to have a crust of say 5,000 miles
thickness, and at the center of the planet, place a billiard ball, that
small mass, immeasurably smaller than the bulk of the earth, would bear
the entire burden of the mass of the crust 5,000 miles thick and would
keep it equidistant from itself. No power, however great, could
possibly displace this central mass so as to bring it into contact with
the crust. Furthermore, to move this central mass in any direction,
would require a force sufficient to move the entire mass of the planet,
and in propagating or continuing any such motion the neutral center,
this billiard ball, will at all time periods remain still in the exact
center, bearing the same equidistant relation to its hollow shell. The
mind staggers in contemplating the burden borne by this neutral center,
where weight ceases." No less wonderful are other properties of the
cause of the physical Universe. Its attraction condensed that which we
recognize as substance. Matter was evolved from the affinity of this
neutral center for sympathetic streams and since it is immovable, it
caused, through negative attraction the formation of nodes in these
streams, where the vibrations thereafter continued to meet in a center
of sympathetic coincidence causing the permanence of form and matter.
Every nebula, an embryonic world, is acted upon, created and preserved
by this neutral center, and at the termination of its cycle, it is
ultimately also destroyed by it, causing its absorption into the
Unknown from whence it came.
neutral center of the earth is, in fact, even infinitely smaller than
the billiard ball referred to above. It consists of a compound
interetheric point in space, so small that were we to magnify a pin
head to the size of the sun, and from that substance take a particle of
matter the same size, again magnifying it to the size of the sun, the
neutral center would still be invisible, even though the structure of
this last sub- stance was examined through the highest powered
microscope ever created, or to be created. For the neutral center is
INDIVISIBLE. Its attributes do not belong to matter, and pertain in no
way to matter, which is but its exterior manifestation.
aggregate mass consists of molecules, each of which has its neutral
center where the three modes of vibration, dominant, harmonic, and
enharmonic, meet in a center of sympathetic coincidence and are equated
without cancellation of their energy." The proof of this assumption is
that all matter responded to Keely's disintegratory process and must
therefore consist of these fundamental modes of vibration.
neutral center of the earth is the concentration or totalized power of
all the several molecular neutral centers in the earth's mass. This
neutral center, which is absolutely WITHOUT WEIGHT, an interetheric
point in space, communicates direct by means of its outflow of
sympathy, with every planetary mass in the Universe. Through its inflow
of sympathy, through the solar intermediate, the sun, it receives the
life flow from the SUPREME NEUTRAL CENTER that enables it to perpetuate
its existence. Thus through the outflow from this Supreme Neutral
Center that pivoting point of the Universe controls the existence and
motion of not only every stellar, solar and planetary mass in space,
but also the rotatory vibration, in every individual molecule,
intermolecule, etc. through all the subdivisions of matter, thereby
sustaining their existence and motion with the life flow.
foundations must be sufficient to bear their burden. Conceive then the
Universe centered upon and resting the burden of is incalculable mass
and kinetic energy on a vacuous interetheric point in space, so minute
that it is actually INDIVISIBLE. This conception can only be fully
comprehended by an infinite mind. Independent of time, because
indestructible in its unity, independent in space, because through its
properties space itself exists and without it would not exist,
independent of matter because its properties in an external direction
created all that we know as matter and gave it seeming permanence, the
neutral center is that protean, uncreated, indestructible,
forever-existing FIRST CAUSE. Without hands, without tools, without
thought, without emotion, without love, without form, without
substance, it, of itself, created all these. All that we see or can see
in the objective Universe exists because of and by means of the
properties and powers of the NEUTRAL CENTER.
heretofore constructed has been made with a neutral center. This
conception of mechanics has never before dawned on man's thought field.
Had this been done, perpetual motion would have become a demonstrated
fact. Were a machine so constructed as to use its properties, an
introductory impulse would suffice to run it for centuries. However,
this would not be a useful mechanical contrivance for no more energy
could be obtained from it than was originally given, and its only value
would be as a timekeeper." Keely did not seek to invent, nor did he
claim to have invented, perpetual motion.
achievement was the forming within a sphere of a neutral center made
independent of gravity and all outside influences. He writes
(12/17/1885): "The neutral center is only established when rotation
exceeds 100 revolutions per minute, which is sufficient, with the
vibratory circuit running at 100,000 per second, to neutralize the
influence of gravity on the volume of the neutral third of the sphere."
The neutral center controls its sphere of operation, whether that mass
controlled by it be homogenous or complex. All differential mass
antagonism is equated on the induction of certain orders of vibration.
The structural conditions can be entirely adverse, even of unlike
states --- gases with liquids, liquids with solids, solids with gases,
its control will be as complete in one case as in the other.
attractive quality in the neutral center which manifests itself in the
law of individualization, of the attraction to itself of all other
masses in space, is another and kindred phenomena, the opposite of the
first, called by Keely "disturbance of equilibrium."
of unstable equilibrium was born in each neutral center, that by means
of this arrangement, the neutral center might become the connective
link or controlling tendency, holding these two properties in balance
and assuming either phase at will. Between the dispersing positive and
the attractive negative it stands, the deciding factor, the Universal
Will. Keely says: "The action that induces this property I call the
connective link is sympathetic planetary oscillation." The

enery released/energy absorbed. An excited or disturbed center becomes
a dominant center to which surrounding centers become subservient by
neutral center modulation; i.e., induction (absorbing or assimilating
vibratory energy which induction is propagated and maintained by
sympathetic vibration or flows) as in the Bjerknes Effect. A second
center is a virtual center and becomes sympathetically "disturbed"
thereby becoming sub-servient to the dominant center and sub-dominant
within the overall system. These are the centers about which particles
then orbit and rotate on their own axis. This transfer of vibratory and
oscillatory states reflects in periodic motions by sympathetic
induction and maintain "relative" power and position to the Dominant
Center of the original disturbance (source).

ebb and flow of energy to and from these centers follows Keely's Law of
Force. The Dominant Center sets the tone of all that happens around it
whether within its own system or in neighboring systems into which it
has an influence. The flow from center to center is a sympathetic
vibratory interetheric flow. Being sympathetic it is harmonic. Upon
merging with a secondary or sub-servient center the flow splits and
becomes enharmonic to a degree dictated by number. The more harmonic a
center in relation to neighboring centers the more its dominance and
all relatively enharmonic centers will always be sub-servient to its

controlling any differentiation that may exist outside, or in the mass

more energy than the larger, per unit of area. It attracts the planet

demonstrates a fundamental attribute of all vibrating or oscillating
bodies: expansion and contraction. These two seemingly opposing
conditions are governed by more fundamental forces.

fundamental laws governing mathematical relations will briefly convey
the idea of the principles governing universal ratios which is in every
effect of motion the direct and inverse square of the distance, area or
time dimensions and the cube of volume or potential dimensions. The
direct and the inverse are the two way indicators of direction [to or
from a center], the latter belonging to gravitational and the former to
radiational effects." Russell, Genero-Radiative

Compression Wave with expanded and contracted orbits

The graphic above attempts to show expanded orbits of oscillation of
the rarefied or dispersed phase of a vibration in air. The contracted
orbits of oscillation are within (cause) the compression or contraction
phase of a vibration in air. The contractions and expansions are not
caused by impact from outside bombardment but by sympathetically
induced periodic or alternate harmonicity and inharmonicity from within
(from center to center) along sympathetic lines of neutrality. See

Universal One, pg 162.
generative [contractive] effect of motion begins its cycle at its
maximum in the region of lowest pressure, loses one half of every
dimension of it at the high pressure point of its cycle wave, and
exhausts its effect at the place of its beginning.
radiative [expansive] effect of motion begins its cycle at its minimum
in the region of the lowest pressure, gains one-half of every dimension
of it at the high pressure point of its cycle wave, and attains its
maximum at the place of its ending." Russell, Genero-Radiative
Concept, part 6b.
These being the case increasing energy is a smaller orbit (oscillation)
and slower spin (vibration). Likewise decreasing energy is a larger
orbit (oscillation) and faster spin (vibration). Another attribute
mentioned by Russell is contracting is increasing in energy through
multiplication. This means increasing energy is attractive - up to a
point. Energy will increase in direct proportion to harmonicity and
attraction or mutual affinity. Systems of increasing energy are
multiplying energy and augmenting attraction/affinity (gravity). While
systems of decreasing energy are dividing energy and increasing
repulsion/radiation. In the graphic we see increasing orbit radii
(oscillation) as less energy (dispersion) and decreasing orbit radii as
attraction or compression.
These reciprocally locked attributes (contraction, expansion, spin,
orbit velocity, mass and attraction), which Russell calls "dimensions",
are not limited to the ones given. According to his theory there are
eighteen of these attributes being actually nine dual or oppositely
paired attributes. The orbiting body and its orbit are modified
syncothetically or concertedly as each and every one of these
attributes reciprocally changes.
The universal principles above apply to the various dimensions,
attributes, aspects or parameters of all vibratory and oscillatory
systems whether waves, vibrations or planetary orbits. In the list
below I've added in a few extra to account for geometric projections.
Attributes of a Wave (Vibration + Oscillation)
(repulsion, disintegration, dissociation as per cavitation)
(planet or particle spin)

below plane of ecliptic of primary)

below plane of ecliptic of primary)
These dimensions are characterized by two outstanding peculiarities
common to all of them: an orderly periodicity and reciprocity. They are
locked into and operate according to the geometric Principle of Duality
or Principle of Reciprocity(6) meaning paired attributes are reciprocal
to each other. See Russell's The
Universal One for greater detail concerning these
attributes or dimensions.
of a medium
subjected to periodic impulses will behave in similar manner as the
planet just mentioned. With the inducting forces impacting upon them
they will change from a quiescent state which is to say a harmonic
state of circular orbit to an elliptical orbit. During this elliptical
orbit periodic increase and decrease of volume will occur as the
elliptical orbits synchronize, phase in together adding themselves to
peaks and subtracting themselves into troughs.
The more attractive phases synchronize into tighter
accumulations while the less attractive phases synchronize into
"looser" or more dispersed concerted actions. Hence we then have the
compression and rarefaction phases of a standard sound wave.
Power is accumulated in the slowing of the spin of rotation,
simultaneous decrease of orbital radius and increase of orbital speed.
Power is released in the accelerating of spin of rotation, simultaneous
increase of orbital radius and decrease of orbital speed.
is an interesting
concept. I say concept because Time is not a thing - it is an idea - in
the Mind wholly. The Rosicrucians, AMORC have a phrase in their
philosophy that says "mind assigns dimension". In other words Mind
(consciousness/experience) is the measure or metrology of that
observed/experienced. In the case of Time we observe a sunrise and the
Sun's path through our sky - which is to say - earth's orbit or journey
around its primary (year) as also its rotation upon its axis (day).
This phenomenon is divided into discrete pieces dividing a circle into
more or less equal parts. This method gives us a "Time Ruler" by which
the progression or passage of events may be tabulated or marked.
More concisely the earth's movement around the Sun is an
event. This event is divided into segments or spaces; i.e., so
much space covered in so much elapsed "Time". It has been said:
"Time, in its simplest definition, is the progression of
events." Dr. H. S. Lewis
This is an agreeable definition for the reasons presented. This
definition may be extend to include the variability of the event so
described. This being earth's orbit which is not circular but is
elliptical where the earth, in its travels around the Sun, is
constantly changing velocity resulting in days of variable lengths.
Time compresses and expands!
"Time decreases with potential. Time decreases with
decrease in radius." Russell, The
goes into this
varying attribute of orbits quite well and ties or locks these
variations with other effective attributes such as alternating
potential, rotation (spin) speed, radius (distance from primary) and
orbital velocity, among other similarly related attributes. In
Russell's manner of presentation of these forces as "locked" together
we may see how all forces are indeed active as a single force. All
forces, i.e., events, are One compound and complex Event, inextricably
locked together. To consider a single facet or attribute of force as an
isolated event is to miss the true nature of the One Force creating One
compound and complex Event. Such a separatists and isolationist
viewpoint is misleading at best and dismisses the wider more complete
Given the many regularly varying attributes of earth's orbit it could
be well said Time varies in a regularly, periodically or rhymically
varying manner. Time compresses (days/hours become shorter) during the
slower portion of its orbital velocity and Time dilates (expands)
(days/hours become longer) during its faster velocity of travel. A Time
increment (day, hour, minute, second) is less long during the earth's
slow orbit and faster rotation while further from the Sun. A Time
increment (day, hour, minute, second) is longer during the earth's fast
orbit and slower rotation nearer to the Sun.
Another repetitive event occuring in the Mind of Man is music. A cycle
in practiced music is the bar and this bar is divided discretely into a
measure of Time.
"(1) The division of musical phrases into certain
regulated portions measured with regard to the value of the notes with
respect to the semibreve, which, in modern music, is held to be the
standard of time. There are two sorts of time, duple with two, four, or
eight beats in a bar, and triple with three beats in a bar. There is
also compound time, or time formed of the union of triple with duple,
and triple with triple, each having a distinctive time signature. (2)
The pace at which a movement is performed is called its time. " [A
Dictionary of Musical Terms]
defintion given above is substantially the same as Lewis' defintion. By
substituting the word "movement" for "event" we see clearly the
would be folly to
separate Time from the events to which it is locked and of which it is
the measure. Time is not a thing unto itself but an attribute of
cyclical periodicity (change). It could be described in a more or less
scientific manner as the "degree of change" or "rate of change" of a
rhymically occuring event. It is as Lewis points out the measure of the
progression of the event. In this regard it is correct to state Time
cannot be solely a "measure of space".
According to Russell (The
Universal One) there are interlocking attributes
(what he calls dimensions) affecting planets based on their relative
radius which impacts on its mass by virtue of the primary's potential.
Two of these are rotation upon its axis and revolution or orbit around
its primary. In short the closer a planet is to its primary the greater
the potential in which it exists. This close proximity increases its
mass, increases its speed of orbit (revolution) and decreases its spin
(rotation) upon its axis. The further a planet is from its primary the
less its potential. This distanced proximity decreases its mass,
decreases its speed of orbit and increases its spin upon its axis. So
at a close distance days are longer and years are shorter. A further
distance (long radius) days are shorter and years are longer. It is
apparent from this scenario a primary has zones of potential beginning
near its surface as high potential and decreasing in potential in
direct proportion to radius. Cayce said this gravity effect behaves as
octaves of force.
an Octave or a vibration as would be set in motion by the very activity
of the gravitation in its activity." Cayce (195-54, A-12)
gravity doubles per decrease of radius unit. It is assumed this
potential drop-off is the same as the Inverse Square Law. The energy
twice as far from the source is spread over four times the area, hence
one-fourth the intensity. Gravity, electricity, sound, light and
radiation obey the Inverse Square Law. We can assume this is correct
because during falling velocity and potential force increases. Gravity
then may be this potential coupled with the principle that potential
seeks higher potential in periodic proportion. Time therefore is an
effect of revolution (year) and rotation (day). Each Time unit is an
arithmetical relationship to/with each other. Time is not a thing or a
constant but an effect and varies according to its localized system and
perceiver of same. (My sympathies to the sci-fi writers.) An interval
of Time may be further divided. Notice these are not discrete
quantities but arePORTIONS/Divisions of a WHOLE just as in Russell's
Scale of Locked Potentials and Keely's Thirds, Sixths and Ninths.
is a system of pulses of a given frequency fitted into a specific time
reference. i.e., so many notes sounded within a measure (of time). This
would result in a long cycle modulated with intermittent higher
frequency tones. This appears to be especially true in the case of
triplets (three tones sounded where two are timed for). This division of a
unit of time is Russell's Universal Impulse aptly described in The
Universal One, page 106-110.
