"All the work of the world," says Drummond, "is merely taking
advantage of energies already there." In order to take advantage of
these energies, we must not only know of their existence, but know the
laws which govern their operation in nature; for so only can we conquer
them and make them our slaves instead of our masters.
More than twenty years ago, Keely, by seeming chance, discovered
the unknown polar flow, and without giving any attention to research,
on the line of its origin or of its operation, began to construct
engines to apply the energy to mechanics. It was not until he had
invented his marvelous researching instruments that his true work of
evolution began in 1888, which, completed in 1893, has now borne the
test of demonstration and given him command of a vibratory circuit for
running machinery, both for terrestrial use and for aerial navigation.
Before this could be brought about it was necessary to effect a
sympathetic affinity between his machinery and the polar flow, minus
magnetism. The colossal nature of the difficulties that he has
surmounted can never be realized as by those who have followed him
during the last five years, and seen them spring up one after another,
at every advance, to bar his way.
Through this system the dynamo will eventually become a thing of
the past, and electric lighting will be conducted by a polar negative
disc run by a vibratory circuit of sympathetic polar attraction, "drawn
direct from space," which Keely has harnessed for commercial use after
more than twenty years of maligned and persistent effort such as the
world has never known.
Before attempting to set down any of the great truths of
sympathetic physics, it will be necessary for the scientific reader to
have some idea of Keelys views of "Natures sympathetic flows." Although
he has substantiated his theories by demonstration to his own
satisfaction and to the conviction of distinguished men of science,
electricians and engineers, he will welcome any refutation of them
which shows that he is in error, for Keely does not claim to be
infallible, as do those - who sit in judgment upon him. To quote from
"Physicists have been working in the wrong direction to lead them
to associate themselves with Natures sympathetic evolutions. It is not
necessary to advance farther into the unexplored region of these
sympathetic flows than the ninths, to become convinced that the one I
denominate the dominant is the leader toward which the remaining thirds
of the triune combination (of triple sympathetic streams) co-ordinate,
whether it be the cerebellic, gravital, or magnetic. When we reach the
luminiferous track on the ninths, in the triple subdivision, we have
proof that the infinite stream, from that unexplored region where all
sympathetic streams emanate, is triune in its character, having the
dominant as the sympathetic leader, to which the remainder of the
celestial thirds are subservient; the cerebellic being the dominant,
and the triplets (gravital, electric, and magnetic) following in its
"The magnetic cannot lead the electric, nor the electric the
gravital, nor the gravital the magnetic. All are subservient to the
dominant, I as a train of cars is subservient to the locomotive which
pulls it along; the only difference between the two is that one is
sympathetic, the other mechanical. Though this is a crude illustration,
it conveys a great truth in sympathetic philosophy. All sympathetic
flows have this triune condition associated with them, the same as the
molecular, atomic and etheric aggregations of all forms of visible
matter; the compound etheric, or dominant, being the leader and yet one
of the constituents of the molecule itself. The dominant we may call
the etheric portion of the molecule; the harmonic, the atomic; and the
enharmonic, the molecule itself. The dominant parts of the triune
combination of the sympathetic streams are the leaders, toward which
all co-ordinate to make up the sympathetic terrestrial envelope of the
earth; the cerebral being the high dominant, or compound etheric, the
"All diversions from the polar terrestrial envelope are but nodal
outreaches, induced by the proper order of sympathetic vibration; not
dissociations and associations of sympathy ; but operating on the same
principle as the outflow, or nodal outreach of the mental organism
toward the physical, in its control over it. The latent conditions are
in a state of neutrality, as regards action, until the exciter-mental
outreach is brought into sympathetic play. If we dissociate the
sympathetic mental from the latent physical, it would be equivalent to
beheading it; consequently, the physical would cease to exist as a
thing of life; but the dominant -the cerebral would remain in its
unchanged form, viz., the high etheric.
"The system of inducing differential harmonies by compound chords
is one that the world of science has never recognized; simply because
the struggles of physicists, combating with the solution of the
conditions governing the fourth order of matter, have been in a
direction antagonistic to the right one. By this I mean that physicists
reject the true conditions of the dissociation of matter; recognizing
and holding fast to an adverse law; debarring the subdivision of the
atom, and ridiculing the existence of latent force in intermolecular
space. I have substantiated the triple formation of the molecule by the
differential triple reply that it gives when excited by compound
concordant impulses, and by the accelerated range of motion which it
assumes under intensified vibration, even to dissociation from its
fellows; proving this dissociation by the increased amounts of latent
energy evolved, progressively."
At an early period of Keelys researches, on the lines suggested by
the distinguished professor of the Bonn University, Dr. Hertz, viz., of
the conditions governing the operation in nature of the unknown energy
he was dealing with, Keely wrote to a friend:
"It appears, in my researching experiments, quite evident to me,
that under different orders of progressive vibration, when the sixth
order is reached on the positive, a condition presents itself in an
accompanying agent that adds to the etheric flow a very peculiar
action. I call this third agent its sympathetic attendant.
"In the physical organism, the circulatory forces have their
attendants in the form of nerves, which are the sensatory telegraphs to
all parts of the human system. I have reason to believe that under the
seventh subdivision of matter a condition is reached where perfect
assimilation takes place between these two sympathetics, thus showing
the luminiferous track. It is this assimilation or association that
induces the luminosity, I am quite certain; but in this unition there
is nothing approaching corpuscular friction, which in itself is
antagonistic to luminosity.
"Consequently the unition of these sympathetic thirds must take
place by gravital assimilation, which is the highest order of
sympathetic union. This is the compound etheric flow, or soul of
matter. The sympathetic attendant must be the odylic; or, comparatively
speaking, its nerve force. Reichenbach exercises a wonderfully
far-seeing judgment in his argument on this, the highest preponderable.
"If I am able, with the instrument I am now constructing, to
demonstrate these assertions as truths, it will amply repay the
researches of a lifetime. The conditions governing the nerve-force of
the planetary system may then be unraveled by future research. This
seems to be too immense an aim to be associated with human thought.
"I hope I am the compound lunatic that the scientific world calls
me, to whom it is given to work out the demonstration of these hidden
things of God which hitherto have seemed to be past finding out. They
may call me I Cagliostro, Impostor, Charlatan, or anything that pleases
them; I shall glory in these names, if I can reach the solution of this
vast problem that I am now at work upon. I thank God the time is near
at hand when I will be able to prove how faithfully accurate is the new
philosophy in showing up the conditions governing the sympathetic
By progressive research Keely has, since that time, attained such
perfection in his method of work that the vitalizing of instruments,
which formerly took him three days, is now accomplished in fifteen
minutes, using hydrogen in increasing molecular oscillation to the
point where the power can be registered. Up to a certain stage he was
able to employ the ether; but in this process it would be as
impossible, as it is to take the flow of thought in ones hands and by
physical effort tie it in a knot. Having, in these researches,
succeeded in wresting from Nature the conditions of planetary
suspension, he is now well on his way toward gaining the closely
guarded secret of the firefly. All that Nature does with Natures forces
man will be able to do when he has wrung from her grasp, one by one,
the keys that she still clenches in her hands; for it is Nature
herself, not Science, which has given to the world, in this system of
aerial navigation, "the crowning achievement of a century of progress."
Keely has never made but one experiment in dissociating the
hydrogen of the chemist. After a persistent effort of over seven weeks
duration, in his attempt to confine it and hold it under assimilation
with one-third its volume of disintegrated air, he succeeded in
obtaining a rather indefinite result, lasting only about ninety
seconds. The luminosity shown was the only evidence he had of its
dissociation; but, in his process of disintegration of water, he never
fails to obtain proof of the triple subdivision of hydrogen -
molecular, atomic and inter-atomic.
Each disc of the polar and depolar groupings in the propeller of
the air-ship contains seven pints of hydrogen. In preparing these
discs, the hydrogen is submitted to a triple order of vibration. The
corpuscular envelopes of the molecules are not enlarged in volume,
under their receptive condition, but their velocity of rotation is
increased. While under the operation of this transmittive vibration
their vortex action is made visible.
Under date of November 2, 1891, Keely wrote of one of his
researching instruments which he was then inventing, to overcome nodal
interference in sympathetic negative outreach: "This instrument
combines the disintegrator and the positive-negative-indicator in one.
It will be but an intermediate, as between the sympathetic negative
transmitter and the depolarizer. At present, I am working like a man
suspended between heaven and earth, trying to reach one without leaving
This is one of Keelys many apt figures of speech, which convey, as
no other words could, what his position has been in the past. The
wonderful instrument (the sympathetic harness) which he has now
completed to connect the polar flow with the propeller of the air-ship,
substantiates what only two years ago was purely theoretical in Keelys
system of sympathetic-vibratory physics; and, figuratively speaking,
proves that without leaving earth he has laid hold of the very
battlements of celestial regions, thus opening a pathway for men of
science to reach the solution of their most intricate problems. Often
has Keely expressed his regret that mechanical physicists have not had
suitable instruments for their researches, saying that they would long
since have discovered their errors had they been in possession of
proper instruments for acoustic research. It was some photographs of
his instruments which led the late Henri Hertz, after examining them,
to say in 1889:
"No man who is working on these lines, with such instruments, is a
fraud. I cannot help him; no one can help him; he must work out his
system alone, and when it is completed, we can pursue our researches on
the same line. I thought Keely was working, as I am, with an electrical
machine and wires. I had no idea of these wonderful instruments."
The machine used by Keely, from 1872 to 1882, for disintegrating
water, weighed several tons. Since that time, in his work of evolution,
he has made such advances that the one he now uses is no larger than
the wheel of a perambulator.
In Keelys process of disintegrating water, the proportion of oxygen
to hydrogen is such as to favor the bringing about, under a certain
order of triple vibration, the antagonistic differentiation necessary
to produce molecular and atomic corpuscular dissociation. When this
dissociation takes place, the hydrogen becomes highly rotating, acting
like a molecular capsule with the oxygen enclosed. While under this
condition, when confined in a tube, they remain dissociated until the
peripheral rotation of the hydrogen is interfered with.
One of the foundation stones of vibratory physics is that "no
differentiation can exist in the workings of the pure law of harmony."
If this be correct, then all so-called elements have a triple basis, as
vibratory physics teaches, for the system that represents harmony in
one sense must represent it in all, or everything would be brought into
"chaotic confusion." Therefore, as Keely surmised, long before he was
able to prove it to his own satisfaction, hydrogen must, under the
conditions of this law, be composed of three elements; and these three
elements in turn must each have a triple formation, and so on
indefinitely, until verged into the infinite inter-luminous.
The correctness of these hypotheses has been proved by the varying
degrees of energy evolved in progressive disintegration from the
molecular to the introductory etheric. Keely writes:
"The nearer the approach to the neutral centres, when the
dissociation takes place, the greater is the latent force evolved. In
molecular dissociation the instrument is set on the thirds, meeting
with a rotating resistance of five thousand pounds per square inch,
without any interference with the inter-molecular position. The
instrument is set on the sixths, to liberate inter-molecular latent
force, which, when liberated, is equal to a resistance of ten thousand
pounds. To reach the atomic centres, the instrument is set on the
ninths dominant, the sixths harmonic, and the thirds enharmonic, having
the transmittive chord B associated with each. At this setting the
corpuscular percussion exceeds twenty-five thousand pounds per square
inch. The subservience to the co-ordinate sympathy is shown in the
result by a pressure exceeding fifteen thousand pounds, reaching, in
this subdivision, almost as near the neutrals as instruments can carry
us. The atomic and inter-atomic settings constitute the introductory
conditions governing the nodal outreach as toward the etheric. Under
this condition of sympathetic vibration an evolution of energy is
registered far exceeding any heretofore liberated. The region of the
inaudible is reached - the introductory etheric and the first features
of the invisible latent force existing in corpuscular embrace have been
"We must put our shoes from off our feet-i. e., lay aside our
earthly bodies before we can go farther. But this is far enough to
prove that nothing is lost, and that, when this repellent order of
things is brought about, and so-called elements are separated, these
elements yield up, in their molecular separation, what may be called
their souls, or more progressive elements.
"We have gone far enough to find that there is no such thing as
death; that matter cannot die, any more than the substance or spiritual
essence which controls it can die. The word death is a misnomer, for
there is only a change of base in the molecular visible, and it is the
same with the sympathetic invisible, for celestial radiation claims her
own back again to its realm of spiritual existence.
"My own dim life should teach me this,
That life shall live for evermore;
Else earth is darkness at the core,
And dust and ashes all that is.
"It is through the action of natures sympathetic forces that
planets are born and their volume of matter augmented. If the
sympathetic, negative polar stream were cut off from the earth, its
molecular mass would become independent, and would float away into
space as would a soap-bubble filled with warm air. The same conditions
of governing rule exist in the planetary masses as between the mental
and physical forces in our organisms; the organism representing the
earth, and its link with the cerebral centres the connection with the
infinite mind. In other words, the latent energy existing in the
neutral depths of matter, visible or invisible, remains eternally
subservient and unchangeably linked to the eternal mind. True science
is bastardized by intimating that the life in matter can be destroyed
by any intensity of thermal negation (frigidity). Can finite man make
use of an infinite element to neutralize infinity? Thermal negation
causes molecular oscillation to diminish, or even seem to cease, but
the results brought about from this superficial appearance of matter
coming to rest are that the latent energy existing in the molecular
zone is transferred to the intermolecular, increasing the oscillations
of the inter-molecular in the same ratio that the molecular is
diminished. All the art that man can employ to induce the same effect
on the inter-molecular zone ends here. Granting, however, that it were
possible, what would ensue?
"A disintegration, of the most intense explosive character, of the
volume experimented upon, destroying the apparatus and its
surroundings. But no artifice of the physicist could ever produce such
conditions. In the disintegration of water by vibratory changes of
atmospheric base (a triple order of sympathetic vibration, molecular,
inter-molecular, and atomic simultaneously projected) the
inter-molecular depths only are interfered with, the result being that
latent energy is liberated, showing a pressure of 2,000 atmospheres,
when barometric conditions are favorable.
"The physical organism (through the medium of celestial radiation)
is a trinity, both in regard to its visible form and the invisible
sympathetic streams which govern it, in its individual and combined
movements. The visible includes the molecular, the atomic and
inter-atomic in combination; while the invisible, or spiritual,
includes the etheric, interetheric and luminous in combination, each of
which is essential to the proper completion of the combined action,
comprising as it does every minute law governing the celestial and
"Life begets life; the celestial life begets the terrestrial life;
the God-life begets the man-life. Celestial radiation is the pure soul
of all matter, both earthy and gaseous. Thus we are linked in all our
environments to the divine, our cerebral aggregations being the highest
medium whereby celestial sympathetic reflection associates with our
organisms, and is our only source of knowledge of ourselves. We have,
with our mental and physical forces, a duality of action which, when
combined with the celestial, makes up the triplet or trinity. With the
mental, the superficial visible, or outward sight; with the inward, or
spiritual invisible, we have the spiritual link connecting mind and
matter, the order of transfer being:
"First.&endash;Celestial radiation, or etheric.
"Second.&endash;Mental impregnation, or inter-atomic.
"Third.&endash;Physical movements, or inter-molecular.
"Ninths. &endash;Sympathetic transfer from the celestial
"Sixths.&endash;Sympathetic impregnation of matter.
Thus the following question is answered, asked by Oliver Lodge
(even though, with the professors knowledge, the answer seems to be but
"arrant gibberish " to him):
"By what means is force exerted, and what definitely is force? Here
is something not provided for in the orthodox scheme of physics. Modern
physics is not complete, and a line of possible advance lies in this
Vibratory physics has here reached the boundary line dividing the
infinite from the finite, the link between mind and matter. Here we
must pause; but it has taught us that it is only in the supreme
conditions of celestial reflection or sympathetic transfer that we
live, move, and have our being; through which every thought, or flow of
the mental, actuates the physical organism, on the same order that an
illuminated centre radiates and lights up its surroundings.
Mr. J. Townshend in his paper "The Planet Venus," read at Leeds, in
"Are hydrogen, nitrogen, helium, etc., really elemental substances,
or are they evolved from ether? If so, what is ether? Whence the
impulse which operates upon it, and what is its nature? Thus we turn
from effect to cause in search of some first principle upon which the
mind can rest. But ere this the light of science has failed us, for who
by (scientific) searching can find out God?"
Sympathetic vibratory or spiritual physics answers these questions,
and, as has been said, promises to burst upon the searchers after truth
as the one mighty and complete revelation of some of the mysteries of
"Science was faith once; faith were science now
Would she but lay her bow and arrow by
And arm her with the weapons of her time."
"And God breathed into man the breath of life," celestial
radiation, " and man became a living soul."
The cause of the effect, the source or fountain-head of all matter,
is the celestial Mind-Deity, from whom all power emanates, and whose
laws of sympathetic association reign over and control all matter and
all substance. Spirit is substance, as Spinoza taught: "The universe is
one. There is no supernatural; all is related, cause and sequence."
"Like fire, which is a spiritual order of vibration, spirit is
latent in all matter. One might as well try to operate a steam-engine
without its boiler as to give motion to matter against the conditions
imposed by nature, or to propose a new method of controlling the action
of our physical organisms (other than through the sympathetic transfer
of our mental forces) as an improvement on the one instituted by the
"Although there is as much difference in the molecular construction
of spirit and matter as there is between hydrogen and forged steel, yet
the flow of spiritual radiation, from the fountain-head of force,
operates under the one unvarying law with both; for "nature never
changes her processes," and she cannot be forced into any position
which is antagonistic to her sympathetic law of action; such, for
instance, as it would be were a gas to be solidified. The
disintegration of water by heat is only a low order of crude molecular
dissociation, visible in its production of steam; but the dissociation
of hydrogen and oxygen cannot be made visible. Physicists are misled by
visible effects. Nature, by her process of sympathetic vibration (an
order approaching the luminiferous) could take up the atmosphere that
encircles our globe, and yet solid matter would not even then be
produced. By another order of progressive sympathetic vibration,
associated with the high luminous, the molecular condition of the
atmosphere so taken up would not represent a cherry-stone in volume."
Nothing, exists but substance and its modes of motion, says
Spinoza; thus teaching that spirit is substance. "Soul is the body or
organ of the mind, and as such they are inseparable forever. Mind and
soul are one, soul and body are two. Soul can never be without mind,
body can. As in the mortal life, so in the immortal life, mind cannot
be or act without a body." Sympathetic physics teaches that the
luminiferous ether, a compound inter-etheric element, celestial mind
force, is the substance of which everything visible is composed, and
that this great sympathetic protoplastic element is life itself.
"Consequently, our physical organisms are composed of this element;
the focalizing or controlling media to the physical having 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. This element sympathetically permeates all forms and conditions
of matter, having for its attendants gravity, electricity, and
magnetism, the triple conditions borne in itself. From this soul of
matter all forms of motion receive their introductory impulses. The
physicists of the present age ignore the sympathetic conditions that
are associated with the governing force of the cerebral and the
muscular organism. The evolution of a volition, the infinite exciter,
arouses the latent energy of the physical organism to do its work;
differential orders of brain-force acting against each other under dual
conditions. If there were no latent energy, to arouse sympathetically,
there would be no action in the physical frame, as all force is
"Enough alternate active energy could be evolved, in a cubic inch
of steel, by the proper sympathetic exciter, to do the work of a horse,
by its sympathetic association with the polar force in alternate
polarization and depolarization. This is the power that I am now
getting under control to do commercial work. In other words, I am
making a sympathetic harness for the polar terrestrial force." KEELY,
In 1893, Keely, in reply to the question, "What do you include in
the polar forces?" answered, "Magnetism, electricity, and gravital
sympathy; each stream of force composed of three currents which make up
the governing conditions of the controlling medium of the universe. The
ninths which I am now endeavoring to graduate to a sympathetic
mechanical combination will, if I succeed, close my researches in
sympathetic physics, and complete my system." Within the year the
announcement was made that Keely had completed this graduation, with
entire mechanical success, "hooking his machinery on to the machinery
of nature." In thus having realized the ambition of his life, he takes
no credit to himself, saying that physicists would long since have
discovered all that he has discovered if they had been in possession of
the proper researching instruments, and that the theories they have
advanced show that they are misled by the imperfections of their
instruments. He has always maintained that "it is only when science
holds the reins of the polar negative harness that commercial success
will follow, and not one hour before." But science, to whom the reins
were offered in 1884, refused to take them, fortunately, for mechanical
physics could have rendered Keely no assistance in unraveling the
mysteries of sympathetic physics.
Buckle, in his address, "The Influence of Women on the Progress of
Knowledge," discloses the foundation stone of sympathetic physics in
these words: "The laws of nature have their sole seat, origin, and
function, in the human mind. Not one single discovery has ever been
made which has been connected with the laws of the mind that made it.
Until this Connection is ascertained, our knowledge has no sure basis."
As Dr. Gerard surmises, in his book on "Nervous Force,"
Keely is "a plagiarist in cerebral dynamics." The instrument that
he calls the sympathetic transmitter is the brain of the propeller, and
at last we have a discovery which gives a sure basis for knowledge; a
discovery made by one who lays no claims to learning, for nature has
taught him, in her works, all that he knows.
THE PROPELLER DESCRIBED.
The space which the propeller of the air-ship occupies in Keelys
laboratory comes within a radius of six feet square. A small space for
so powerful a medium--distributing over one thousand horse-power, as
tested by experiment.
It consists of more than two thousand pieces, the principal parts
of which are:
- In the progress of the race, man may be likened

from his leading-strings, but with a future of power and intelligence

- Nous marchons tous an milieu de secrets, entourÈs
de mystÈres. Nous ne savons pas ce qui se passe dam latmosphÈre qui
nous entoure; nous ne savons pas quelle relations elle a avec notre
The condition of the mechanical requirements necessary to conduct
successfully the line of research which Keely has been pursuing will be
properly appreciated, now that be is able to demonstrate the simplicity
and beauty of his system, under perfect control for commercial use.
Modern materialistic science is altogether unprepared for the
revelation given in sympathetic vibratory physics; a revelation
foreshadowed in this passage from the writings of de Maistre.
"Religion and science, in virtue of their natural affinity, will
meet in the brain of some one man of genius, and the world will get
what it needs and cries for &endash; not a new religion, but the
fuller revelation of revelation."
In the same prophetic spirit Oliver Lodge, in his paper on "The
Interstellar Ether," writes:
"I feel as if it would be no merely material prospect that will be
opening on our view, but some glimpse into a region of the universe
which science has never yet entered, which has been sought from afar,
and perhaps blindly apprehended by painter or poet, by philosopher or
"The ghost in man, the ghost that once was man,
But cannot wholly free itself from man,
Are calling to each other through a dawn
Stranger than earth has ever seen: the veil
Is rending, and the voices of the day
Are beard across the voices of the dark."
Mr. Keely illustrates his idea of "a neutral centre" in this way:
"We will imagine that, after an accumulation of a planet of any
diameter&endash;say, twenty thousand miles, more or less, for the
size has nothing to do with the problem there should be a displacement
of all the material, with the exception of a crust five thousand miles
thick, leaving an intervening void between this crust and a centre of
the size of an ordinary billiard ball, it would then require a force as
great to move this small central mass as it would to move the shell of
five thousand miles thickness. Moreover, this small central mass would
carry the load of this crust forever, keeping it equidistant; and there
could be no opposing power, however great, that could bring them
together. The imagination staggers in contemplating the immense load
which bears upon this point of centre where weight ceases. This is what
we understand by a neutral centre."
In theorizing on the philosophy of planetary suspension, Mr. Keely
says: "As regards planetary volume, we would ask in a scientific point
of view, how can the immense difference of volume in the planets exist
without disorganizing the harmonious action that has always
characterized them? I can only answer this question properly by
entering into a progressive synthesis, starting on the rotating etheric
centres that were fixed by the Creator with their attractive or
accumulative power. If you ask what power it is that gives to each
etheric atom its inconceivable velocity of rotation, or introductory
impulse, I must answer that no finite mind will ever be able to
conceive what it is. The accumulation is the only proof that such a
power has been given. The area, if we can so speak of such an atom,
presents to the attractive or magnetic, the elective or propulsive, all
the receptive force and all the antagonistic force that characterizes a
planet of the largest magnitude; consequently, as the accumulation goes
on, the perfect equation remains the same. When this minute centre has
once been fixed, the power to rend it from its position would
necessarily have to be as great as to displace the most immense planet
that exists. When this atomic neutral centre is displaced, the planet
must go with it. The neutral centre carries the full load of any
accumulation from the start, and remains the same, balanced in the
Again, Mr. Keely, in explanation of the working of his engine,
says: " In the conception of any machine heretofore constructed, the
medium for inducing a neutral centre has never been found. If it had,
the difficulties of perpetual motion seekers would have ended, and this
problem would have become an established and operating fact. It would
only require an introductory impulse of a few pounds, on such a device,
to cause it to run for centuries. In the conception of my vibratory
machine, I did not seek to attain perpetual motion; but a circuit is
formed that actually has a neutral centre, which is in a condition to
be vivified by the other, and while under operation by said substance
is really a machine that is virtually independent of the mass (or
globe), and it is the wonderful velocity of the vibratory circuit which
makes it so. Still, with all its perfection, it requires to be fed with
the ether to make it an independent motor. . . ."
1 The mental flow is dominant over all the sympathetic conditions
associated with the physical organism. The nervous flow comes under the
order of the sub-dominant; consequently there is no sympathetic
correlation between the two.
Example: The body of a violin represents the mental, or resonator,
while the strings by which it is attuned represent the nervous, or
nerves. The strings or nerves, can be brought to a tension whereby they
are broken apart, but the violin, or resonator, remains intact and
dominantly independent under all these conditions.

the north and reversing by depolar action.
- 2. Sympathetic polar negative transmitter; for operating and
controlling the action of the machinery in producing polar and depolar
power: liberating the latent sympathetic power in twenty-seven
- 3. Polar and depolar intermittent accumulator, carrying eight
focalizing discs for receiving and distributing the sympathetic polar
negative flow. This device takes the energy sympathetically from the
polar negative stream on the same order that a dynamo registers
electricity from the earth to be distributed and redistributed: running
the machine sympathetically.
- 4. Positive ring suspended on a small shaft with three points,
the object of which is to preserve the integrity of the neutral (see
Appendix) centre of the machine.
- 5. Two resonating drums: one positive, one negative, which
multiply the intensity of the sympathetic flow.
- 6. Twenty-seven depolar triple groupings, nine in each grouping,
consisting of three vitalized discs with resonators. These reply
sympathetically to polar and depolar action.
- 7. Large polar ring. This ring is associated with the central
resonators by nine resonating polar discs placed at equal distances.
This is the medium for distributing the polar flow.
- 8. Small negative ring, which is the governor of the propeller,
associated with a polar bar that oscillates from the polar field to the
depolar field, somewhat on the order of a magnetic needle, governing
the action of the machine to any given number of revolutions. The
sympathetic rotation that exists in the resonating centre of this ring
holds the neutral centre in subservience to celestial radiation,
whereby a certain order of sympathetic disturbances gives the
sympathetic radiation the requisite power to draw it to itself,
accomplishing what is called atmospheric suspension on the same
principle as that of sympathetic suspension.

as Associated with the Transmitter.)
By JOHN W. KEELY.
I have long hold an opinion almost amounting to a conviction
that the various forms under which the forces of matter are made
manifest have one common origin; or, in other words, are so directly
related and mutually dependent that they are convertible, as it were,
into one another, and possess equivalents of power in their action.
The working part of this device consists, first, of an outside ring
carrying on its inside face nine pieces -- equidistant from each other
--- called polar accelerators; which constitute the polar field or
polar circuit. Second, another ring of less diameter, situated inside
of the larger ring, and carrying on its face eight disks, with a triple
grouping in each, representing the depolar field, or field of high
In the Centre is placed a resonating intensifier, through which the
sympathetic currents pass. By a spiro-vibrophonic arrangement these
currents are diverted toward the neutral Centre of the earth. This
device is the sympathetic multiplying agent for the polar field, and
the negatizing agent for the anti-polar field. When under action it is
entirely subservient to the transmitter, both in regard to high
intensification and thorough neutralization of polar and depolar
THE PHILOSOPHY OF ITS ACTION.
The circles containing the sensitized disks -- both polar and
depolar - are in sympathetic relation to the polar negative circuits of
the earth, and in a condition to be brought into action by the negative
transmitter. The sympathetic conditions of the polar and depolar field
of the circuits remain latent until the transmitter is associated and
the introductory impulse given. Then conditions assert themselves which
demonstrate the wonderful power of sympathetic action in abeyance to
the laws by which they are governed.
The introductory impulse represents the sympathetic chord of unity
to polar attraction. When this is given, the polar outreach is
immediately established in the polar circuit, which seeks to assimilate
itself to the anti-polar, or triple groupings; but as the alternation
of the two circuits represents a condition of sympathetic antagonism
(as 8 is to 9), an intensified differentiated wave motion is induced
between the two, thus developing eight alternations, or waves, to one
revolution of the device.
Consequently, an equation cannot be established on account of this
negative interference, which represents the power exerted to bring
about sympathetic equation between the neutral centre of terrestrial
gravity and sympathetic outreach,1 the power that
induces planetary suspension.
Every revolution of the circuits represents eight distinct polar
and depolar waves. When the maximum (five hundred revolutions per
minute) is reached, there are four thousand polar and depolar
interchanges. In sympathetic philosophy the polar circuit represents
the brain power of the instrument, or the medium of impregnation from
celestial radiating outflow; the depolar circuit represents the
organism, which is actuated to do the sympathetic work as dictated by
the same power, or element, 2 that virtually operates
our physical organisms; the work done representing the power expended
to equate the power transmitted, although the movements in the physical
organism are much more complicated.
The polar flow, as induced by the transmitter, is intensified or
diminished by an oscillating bar which governs the revolutions to any
number without variation.
The aerial propeller has a sympathetic polar accumulator and
disperser in one instrument, which is entirely distinct from any of the
devices intended for terrestrial use; also other mechanical adjuncts
not needed on land nor water.
All forms of non-sympathetic machinery have, associated with them,
conditions of centrifugal force on the ratio of the velocity induced;
the diverging power from the centre of induction being governed
specifically by its gravital weight according to the diameter it
occupies in its circle of rotation.
In a sympathetic negative circuit this order of conditions is
reversed; for the power of neutral attraction draws the molecules of
any mass, no matter what the weight, toward the centre of rotation
(instead of toward its periphery) according to the intensity of the
negative vibration that is induced upon that particular circle.
Our earth, in its routine of revolution, is governed by the same
law in every particular; its mass tending toward its centre of
neutrality with a force that is equivalent to the character and
velocity of its rotation.3 If its rotation were
increased, the tendency of everything associated with it would be
increased toward its centre of neutrality on the same ratio. That is, a
pound in weight would, under certain conditions of increased velocity,
become two pounds in weight. The laws governing the sympathetic
rotation of vibratory machinery are the same laws that govern planetary
suspension. To those who have not witnessed the operation of my
devices, my theories must indeed seem wild; but the laws of nature are
the same yesterday today and forever. They know no change; and
sympathetic physics, demonstrated mechanically, must triumph over all
ridicule and opposition in the end. To contradict the laws governing
sympathetic rotation is to contradict the laws governing planetary
suspension, as I am prepared to demonstrate.
If the earth were rotated on a shaft by mechanical force, the
present condition of its rotations would be reversed; everything on its
surface would fly off at a tangent, on the ratio of the velocity
induced. The equilibrium of all things would also be changed.
The gyroscope reveals astounding facts in relation to this
philosophy, even when operated mechanically. No other known device is
so nearly associated with sympathetic vibratory physics.
The vitalization of the disks for the polar and depolar field is
established on the ratio of thirds, sixths, and ninths; the ninths
being the circuit occupied by the polar field, must represent, in the
scale of vitalized focalized intensity, 100 in my system: sixths in the
depolar field, or 66 2/3; and in the neutral field, or thirds, 33 1/3.
The triplets must represent one true chord of equation. The sympathetic
transmitter transfers any degree of intensity desired from zero up to
disintegration; all the transfers being made above the line of the
first inaudible, as associated with my resonating system of transfer.
On the sixths and ninths, in the progressive triple subdivision of the
elements 4 of water, the nearest sympathetic approach
is made to the high luminous, which is the main sympathetic link to the
earths polar negative envelope, and the one whereby coordination is
effected for commercial work. In short, this progressive condition
establishes the necessary association between celestial radiation and
terrestrial outreach, in regard to controlling the polar negative
attractive force in mechanics; whether for serial navigation or for
terrestrial commercial work, in all its multiplied forms.
The atmospheric envelope of our earth owes its activity and its
volume entirely to celestial radiating forces.5
Reception and dispersion are kept up by atomic and interatomic conflict
between the dominant and enharmonic currents of the triune polar
stream. The harmonic and enharmonic current with the dominant (in the
electric stream) by their sympathetic association evolve the energy of
The mechanical proof of the correctness of my theories, in
sympathetic or spiritual physics, is so overwhelming in its simplicity
that it needs but to be witnessed to convince the most learned or the
most simple mind that this system will place both science and commerce
on a platform which will elevate each to a level far higher than those
they now occupy.
THE NEUTRALIZATION OF MAGNETS.
Thus, either present elements are the true elements, or else
there is the probability before us of obtaining some more high and
general power of nature, even than electricity, and which at the same
time might reveal to us an entirely new grade of matter, now hidden
from our view and almost from our suspicion. FARADAY.
Question. How can a magnet be robbed almost instantaneously of its
Answer. The peculiarity of the sympathetic conditions which
conserve a magnet to polar and anti-polar currents of the earth, prove
perfect sympathetic equation between reception and distribution in that
part of the electrical field which is classified, in my system, as
inter-atomic vibratory oscillation.
This oscillation represents, in its corpuscular field of action, an
alternating wave-motion of one hundred and twenty-eight thousand four
hundred vibratory exchanges per second, between polar reception and
depolar distribution, thus establishing its perfect sympathetic
concordance to that third of the electric triple stream which
represents the sixths in vibratory sympathetic physics. The sympathetic
action of the magnet, when electrically sensitized, becomes subservient
to polar attraction as a medium through which a portion of its flow is
diverted; no longer latent, but highly active as long as its magnetic
sympathy (as electrically induced) continues, and it will then
associate itself with every medium in nature in which this element
exists in its latent state, from steel to oxygen at a low temperature.
We have now reached a starting-point from which to obtain a
conception of the manner in which a magnet can be neutralized, that is,
robbed of its coincident unity, or subservience to polar negative
The vibration of the polar magnetic flow represents one hundred and
twenty-eight thousand four hundred oscillations per second, or
one-third of the triplet of electrical induction, consequently the
magnet must be in pure concordant sympathetic union with this rate of
vibration, in its polar field, to become a medium of receptiveness as
well as a medium of distribution of polar negative sympathy. In other
words, the polar sympathetic flow is tapped at this point to allow of a
letting out of the focalization that is diverted toward it by
electrical vitalization 6 which represents positive
If a condition of antagonistic vibration is brought to bear upon
this focal centre - the magnet - its concordant sympathy to the polar
sympathetic volume is broken up, inducing sympathetic dissociation;
which means positive neutralization, as far as its latent energy can be
disturbed or diverted from receptiveness and distribution.
The magnet can be compared to a dark room without one aperture to
admit a ray of light. The one hundred and twenty-eight thousand four
hundred vibrations represent an aperture, illuminating the room with a
constant flow of sunlight. The negative vibrations represent a
condition whereby the closing of this aperture is effected, cutting off
the flow of light: - the sunlight representing polar energy.
All vibrations that are negative in their character as toward
destroying the harmonic relations that exist between the magnetic
current and its coincident polar, to carry out the simile, close up the
aperture whereby illumination (or transfer) is continuously conducted.
The thirds, on the subdivision of the one hundred and twenty-eight
thousand four hundred vibrations, represent the negative antagonism,
whereby this peculiar condition is brought about, viz., forty-two
thousand eight hundred on the positive; the same on the negative and on
the neutral, as associated with the sympathetic negative transmitter.
The keeper is first placed on the magnet, which has an attachment
whereby a transmitter can be centrally associated with it; the other
terminal having three connections that can be attached to this medium.
The impulse is given simultaneously to the three leads after setting
the instrument to represent forty-two thousand eight hundred vibrations
on the harmonic, the same on the enharmonic and on the diatonic.
If this impulse is given properly, the neutralization will take
place within fifteen seconds.
The original instrument whereby this condition was first brought
about is not used in my completed system. Thorough sensitization as
well as complete neutralization are now effected by the improved polar
negative transmitter without attaching the magnet. The combination, of
devices which make up the propeller of the air-ship, includes every
feature of this system relating to the varied governing conditions of
celestial and terrestrial sympathy.
The series of experiments, daily for one week, that I am now
preparing to give before an expert committee, for the purpose of
enabling this committee to make a public announcement of the scientific
and commercial value of my system of sympathetic vibratory physics,
First. - Operation of the polar circuit, drawing power from space,
and showing control of various degrees of velocity.
Second. - Sensitization of a polar disk, after having had its
complete neutrality to magnetism tested.
Third. - After associating it with the polar test-medium, heavily
weighting it to demonstrate its attractive power; the weight remaining
suspended to it by this power.7
Fourth. - Transmitter connected to the test-medium, while the disk
is carrying the weight. Negative vibration transferred; effecting
complete dissociation; the disk and weights dropping to the floor.
Fifth. - Rotation of compass-needle, on a set of resonators,
subservient to any one of the resonators, in defiance of its attraction
to the north. Variations given; changing its subservience to different
resonators, as the introductory impulse is changed.8
Sixth. - Mediums, representing the chords of different masses of
metal, made to float in a tall jar of water, with extraordinary changes
Seventh. - Operations of a sensitized globe, by sound.
Eighth. - Operations of the globe under the influence of the
improved polar sympathetic transmitter.
Ninth. - Disintegration of water by triple vibration.9
showing progressive degrees of energy (from molecular to inter-atomic,
etc., etc.) on different rates of transfer.
The full operation of the aerial propeller, in a variety of
features of action, will be shown if the connection has been effected
between it and the sympathetic harness.
A concave steel shield for the reception of the corpuscular inflow
toward the neutral centre of the propeller is the medium whereby great
velocity through space will be attained. Forty-two thousand vibrations
per second is equivalent to a ten thousand pound push. This force can
be regulated from three hundred pounds to five tons, which is the
maximum speed. The minimum at eight thousand vibrations is three
1 The sympathetic outreach of the moon toward the
earth has a power strong enough to extend nearly a quarter of a million
of miles, lifting the oceans out of their beds. The action of the
magnet may be compared to a sympathetic outreach of a very limited
range of motion. It is quite foreign to induction in principle, and may
be expressed as "seeking for concordance to establish an equation on
the sympathetic disturbance of equilibrium."
2 The substance of the brain is molecular. The mind
which permeates the brain is inter-etheric in substance; it is the
element by which the brain is impregnated. This element, when excited
into action, controls all physical motion an long as the necessary
sympathetic conditions are maintained. Then conditions are no more
immaterial in their character than are light and heat. Electricity,
magnetism, gravity, and heat are latent in all aggregations of matter.
They are not obtained from terrestrial influences. Celestial radiation
is the true impregnating medium in all these forces. The brain is the
high resonating receptacle where the sympathetic celestial acts, and
where molecular and atomic motion are induced, as according to the
intensification brought to bear upon it by radiation.

4 The only indivisible "element" is the luminous,
the one from which all compound elements are formed, or aggregated;
hydrogen being one of these compound substances. If hydrogen were a
simple it would assimilate with the high luminous. No molecular
structure known to man can hold even the low order of the luminous as
chemically liberated. Sympathetic physics classifies hydrogen as a
compound triple element, with a metallic base. It comes under the order
of the second atomic, both in vibration and in sympathetic outreach.

than mechanical force." -Wm. Hemstreet.
6 "Electricity is a beneficial fairy. With infinite
tenderness she offers to yield up to you her treasures from unexplored
portions of her domain." - M. Alfred Picards speech before the
Syndicate of Electricians, in Paris.
7 It was a modification of this experiment
witnessed by Professor Rowland which led him to proclaim that he had
detected Keely as using a tube instead of a wire. I have retained a
piece of the wire cut by Prof. Rowland on that oocasion. - C. J. M.
8 It was this control of the compass-needle and
raising without contact weights of eight pounds, in insulated glass
jars, which caused the late Professor Joseph Leidy and Dr. James
Willcox of Philadelphia, with other men of science. to say in 1889 that
Keely was then on the road to the solving of the problem of aerial
navigation. - C. J. M.
9 This is the experiment which Lord Kelvin and Lord
Rayleigh were invited to witness in 1884 but were prevented (after Mr.
Keely had taken apart his instrument to show them its interior
construction) from representations that were made to them by
Philadelphia men that Keely was believed to be a charlatan. --- C J. M.
