"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 his writings:
"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 train.
"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 luminiferous proper.
"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 field."
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 the other."
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 handled.
"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 terrestrial universe.
"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.
"Or again:
"Ninths. &endash;Sympathetic transfer from the celestial luminous.
"Sixths.&endash;Sympathetic impregnation of matter.
"Thirds.&endash;Physical movements."
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 direction."
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 April, asks:
"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 creation.
"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 Almighty.
"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 will-force.
"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, 1892.
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 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:
1. Positive graduating Chladna; guiding by polar action toward 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 sensitized discs.
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.
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 saint."
"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 eternal space."
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.

(By Polar and Depolar Sympathetic Interchange,
as Associated with the Transmitter.)
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. FARADAY.
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 polar interference.
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 interchange.
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 matter.
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.
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 magnetic power?
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 attraction.
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 negative concordance.
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, comprises:
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 of position.
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 hundred.

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.
3 Vide Dr. Robert Hookes theory, advanced by him in 1674.
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.
5 "There is more in the great realm of electricity 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.
