The following article has been more or less a mystery to me all
these years since I first read it way back in 83 or so. Bits and pieces
were understandable but as a whole it remained an enigma. In reading
"Atomic Suicide?" the "missing pieces" or insight are being supplied
and I can now see what you will read below is IDENTICAL to Russells own
views. Keely tends to be more technically specific while Russell is more "philosophical"
but they are each saying the same thing - each in his own words. The
article was written by Professor Brinton and republished by
Bloomfield-Moore in her book "Keely
and His Discoveries", 1893. For instance the "threefold relations"
mentioned below corresponds to Russells One dividing and expression of
itself into two polar forces or states or whole Spirit and male/female
active opposites altogether making three distinct states. These three
operate concurrently. There are many other similarities throughout this
piece. Notice the reference to 3rds and consistent triune patterns.
They were both operating from and through Cosmic Consciousness so how
could they be different?
Personally I feel torn between holding up these revelations until
my book is completed (with its attendant much needed cash flow and
personal credits) as against the idea of seeding as many fertile minds
as possible with these insights that the New Dispensation will
spontaneously be released in as many minds and places as possible. This
would prevent theft, plagarism, monopolization through patents and the
like as has occured in so many ways in the past. Both Keely and Russell
did everything they could to give this knowledge to the world for its
benefit. Why should I be any different? Keely tried to make his work
more scientifically acceptable by leaving aside the spiritual or
religious aspects and vocabulary by stripping the base truth foundation
of all religions of their anthropomorphic leanings and interpretations.
A cosmological view of this nature has the potential of uniting many
now-considered disparate philosophies into one grand view of nature
because it is neutral of dogma and doctrine.
I send this along with many blessings to you and with thanks for
the privilege and honor I feel at being so blessed myself. If we are to
awaken to Cosmic Consciousness we must first BE the expression as we
see it. In this case the Law of Love as giving and regiving.
Think of the following effort as a Rosetta Stone where
various languages come together saying the same things to different
people with different backgrounds and perspectives.
As a suggestion for GROUP effort the following article be taken
whole clothe and annotated by each of us from our individual
perspectives with Russellian and whoevers contributions to fill it out
and make it more easily intelligible and ultimately useable in
engineering, art and science. I volunteer a fresh web page for this
purpose where the original can be posted and all additions thereto with
appropriate links to supporting graphics, data, etc.

KEELYS PHYSICAL PHILOSOPHY.
Mr. Keely begins with sounds whose vibrations can be known and
registered. I presume that the laws of ratio, position, duality, and
continuity, all the laws which go to mould the plastic air by plastic
bodies into the sweetness of music, will also be found ruling and
determining all in the high silence of interior vibrations, which hold
together or shake asunder the combinations that we call atoms and
ultimate elements. -The Science of Music. D. C. Ramsay. Edited by
the Rev. John Andrew. Marcus Ward & Co.
What Keely has discovered in physics, I am in some measure
credited with discovering in metaphysics: this is nothing strange,
according to this philosophy, which shows that many people may divine
the same original truth at the same time by means of the etheric
element which connects the Deity, the source of all truth, with all His
creatures. - Preface to Vera
Vita; or, the Philosophy of Sympathy. David Sinclair. Author of A
New Creed. Digby, Long & Co., London.
Abstract of Keelys Physical Philosophy
in its Main Features up to the Point of
by Professor Daniel G. Brinton, of the Pennsylvania University;
subject to modifications and additions when Keely has made public his
The fundamental conception of the Universe is force manifesting
itself in rhythmical relations. This definition is exhaustive,
including both thought and extension, matter and mind. The law for the
one is the law for the other. The distinction between them is simply
relative, i.e. quantitative, not qualitative.
The rhythmic relations in which force acts are everywhere, under
all conditions, and at all times, the same. They are found
experimentally to be universally expressible by the mathematical
relations of thirds.
These threefold relations may be expressed with regard to their
I. Assimilative. [centripetal, female,
II. Individualizing. [centrifugal, male
III. Dominant or Resultant. [source, Mind,
WR] [Neutral, Keely]
[see Russells image of these
three forces pictured as a triune dynamic] [these
three fundamental forces govern all motion everywhere, WR/DP]
From these three actions are derived the three fundamental
LAWS OF BEING.
I. Law of Assimilation: every individualized object assimilates
itself to all other objects. [see research by
II. Law of Individualization: every such object tends to assimilate
all other objects to itself. [see research by
III. Law of the Dominant: every such object is such by virtue of
the higher or dominant force which controls these two tendencies.
Applying these fundamental laws to an explanation of the universe,
as it is brought to human cognition, all manifestations of force may be
treated as modes of vibrations.
The essential differences give rise to three modes of vibration:-
I. The Radiating: called also the "Dispersing," the "Propulsive,"
the "Positive," and the "Enharmonic." [radiative,
II. The Focalizing: called also the "Negative," the "Negative
Attractive," the "Polarizing," and the "Harmonic." [centralizing, WR] [These
two are together considered as "sphere of activity" EC] or
[vibratory/oscillatory matter in motion, DP]
III.The Dominant: called also the "Etheric," or the "Celestial." [Vacuous Space, WR] [heaven, EC]
These, it will be noted, correspond to the three laws of being. It is not to be understood that any one of these
three modes of vibration can exist independently. Each by itself is
called a "current", [see WRs version] and all three must
be present in every "stream" or "flow" of force. The relations of the
currents in every flow are expressible in thirds, and it is
experimentally demonstrable that the relations of the three are in the
order named: as 33 1/3 : 66 2/3 : 100.
The evolution of what is called "matter" from the different modes
of vibration is through the action of the second law, that of
focalization, or "negative attraction," or "negative affinity." [Matter coalesces from vacuous space by rhythmic
motion, WR] [see also Wolffs Standing
Where the vibrations under this mode meet, and are maintained in a
state of mutual affinity or equilibrium, there is established what is
called a "neutral centre," or, as otherwise expressed, "a centre of
sympathetic coincidence." [Gravity pole or zero
fulcrum point, WR] [see also Wolffs Standing
The terms "neutral attraction," "neutral affinity," "negative
attraction," or "polar negative attraction," are emplyed to express the
property of a mode of vibration to direct its components towards such
centre. [centripetal, WR] [centralization of
As no current of flow of force can be composed
of one mode of vibration only, but must always be composed of three
modes uniting in varying thirds, we have 1 x 2 x 3 = 6 as the total
possible forms of sympathetic coincidence, or, to speak in ordinary
terms, there can be six;
and six only, possible forms of individualized being. These are
what Keely calls the six orders of atomic subdivision, or orders of
vibratory motion, and he names them as follows:
I. Molecular. [solids, liquids or gases
composed of molecules or multiple atoms united, DP]
III. Atomic. [solids, liquids or gases
composed of like-atoms; i.e., pure crystals, DP]
V. Etheric. [subtances of sub-atomic
composition; i.e., plasmas, ethers, DP]
VI. Inter-etheric. [thought or primal mind
quanta, WR/DP; see "Atomic Suicide?"]
[see Chart of Matter and Energy]
In this list the forms of matter are arranged in the mathematical
sequence of the rapidity of the oscillations of their constituent
members; the proportion being proved by experiment to be as follows:
for the molecular orders:
1 : 3 : 9 : 27 : 81 : 243.
This arithmetical progression changes in the atomic orders to a
geometrical progression as folows:
3 : 9 : 81 : 6561 : 43046721, etc.
This same method of progression is believed to hold in all the
orders of vibrations above the molecular, and soon passes into
[keyword in the above is "oscillations" as
opposed to "vibration", DP]
Actually, however, all matter of which we are capable of cognition
through the medium of our senses is in one of three forms of
in each of which the controlling mode of vibration is respectively,
I. The Enharmonic. [centrifugal,
II. The Harmonic. [centripetal, contracting,
III. The Dominant. [spirit or thought, Mind,
WR] [neutral, Keely]
But it must be understood that each of these modes is a positive
and real constituent of every atom and molecule.
It will be seen that as every form of material aggregation is to be
considered as a "neutral centre of attraction", [gravity
center or null zero fulcrum point, WR] where the vibratory force
of all three orders are held in "sympathetic
coincidence", that is, in balanced activity or harmonized motion,
and not by any means cancelled or mutually destroyed, there is no
diminution of force, but only temporary suspension [balance, equilibrium, WR] of its radiating or
propulsive activity or expression.
This is the foundation of Keelys doctrine of "latent force", and of
the indefinite power which can be obtained by breaking up the
harmonious balance or equation of forces [balance,
equilibrium, WR] of every mode, which exists in every "neutral
centre", that is to say in every mass of matter.
Insomuch as every mass of matter consists thus, in fact, of
vibrations in harmonic equilibrium, [concordance,
harmony, JK] related by simple proportions of thirds, it follows
that every mass of every description stands in harmonic relations [unison, JK] to every other mass. This is, in
part, what is meant by the sympathy of all forms of matter and of
motion; and it is through the study of the methods of increasing or
diminishing this sympathy [concordance or
unition of number (cps), DP] that we reach practical results in
this field of research. At present this is best accomplished by resonance; that is, through the harmonic
vibrations created by musical instruments, bringing out the acoustic
world as the microscope reveals the hidden visual world.
Every visible or tangible mass of matter must be regarded as an
aggregation of molecules; the molecules being the true centres of the
equated forces of "neutralized attraction". [voided
at center, WR] [three as one, EC]
These molecules have been experimentally proved by Keely to be
formed of all three modes of vibration; the proof being that they
respond to all three modes when subjected to the tests of compound
concordant impulses [harmonic chords of
When in that state of neutral aggregation which we know as matter,
each molecule is in perpetual oscillation, the range of the oscillation
being one-third of the molecule, and its rapidity 20,000 oscillations
in a second. [keyword in the above is
"oscillations" as opposed to "vibration", DP]
It is through the disturbance of this oscillatory equilibrium, by
means of resonant impulses, that Keely alters the relations of the
vibratory impulses [spectra or signature, DP]
which constitute matter. This he does by striking the same chord in
three octaves, representing the third, sixth, and ninth of the scale.
[see research by Bjerknes.]
Of these, the sixth reduces the range of molecular vibrations or
oscillations; and, by thus bringing nearer to each other the neutral
centres, increases solidification.
[densification, JK; or pressure, WR]
The ninth extends the range of molecular oscillation, and thus
tends to give greater tenuity [preponderance
towards vacuum state, WR] to the mass. It induces "trajectile
velocity" [radiation, WR] from neutral
centres, or "neutral radiation". Experiment shows that molecular
dissociation [disintegration, DP] does
not take place until the molecule attains an oscillation approaching,
it not fully reaching two-thirds of its diameter. This can be effected
by means of the action of the "enharmonic" or "radiating" current
applied to the mass, after its molecules have once been disturbed by an
"introductory impulse" [spark or sharp strike
(pulse wave), DP][desire, WR]] that is, by the musical note
The third represents the "dominant", and when brought under control
of a harmonic resonant impulse induces a complete rearrangement of the
modes of vibration and oscillation; in other words, will transform the
mass either into its component initial forces [sub-atomic
spectra, DP], or into some other form of matter [transmutation, DP].
It is the study of the dominant [neutral, JK]
[Mind, WR] to which Keely has devoted his recent researches. He
aims to control the power he evolves by altering the dominant or
etheric mode of vibration [sub-atomic spectra or
signature, DP] in the triplicate flows of force.
As all molecules and masses are mere centres of harmonized
vibrations, temporarily held in suspension by simple laws identical
with those of resonance, it follows that these centres can be broken up
or divided by certain orders of vibration impinging upon and disturbing
It is a familiar fact that a cord in vibration tends to produce a
similar vibration in a cord placed near it [via sympathetic vibration, DP]. This
property belongs to all vibrations, whether resonant or not, and they
exert it in proportion to the "order" [range of
vibration rate or bandwidth, DP] to which they belong. The
distance in space to which this power extends, or can be extended, is
what is called "the sympathetic outreach" of the current of flow.
In this manner we have "sympathetic negative attraction," and
"sympathetic positive propulsion," with reference to the "outreach" of
the third or dominant current of the stream, which is allied to the
order of etheric [sub-atomic, DP] vibrations.
[see research by Bjerknes.]
Each molecule of a given mass of matter represents the same
harmonic chord or note in its oscillatory motion. The "chord of the
mass" is, therefore, the chord of every molecule of the mass. [spectra or signature, DP]
But as the condition of absolutely stable equilibrium is
theoretical only, and does not exist in nature, the chord of the mass
is constantly changing. Yet we must learn to control this "chord of the
mass" by resonant induction, [applied
sympathetic vibration or response sensitivity, DP] if we would
gain command of the molecular forces.
Keely believes he has solved this problem, by the invention of a
mechanical device which brings the chords of all masses within the
conditions of a few simple acoustic tests.
The range of molecular oscillation is affected differently in
different substances when submitted to the same vibratory impulse, and
these ranges can be measured.
In the three metals, silver, gold, and platina, we obtain the
proportions- 3 : 6 : 9
As this is the primary relation of the modes of vibration, a wire
made of these three metals is peculiarly adapted to transmit concordant
impulses [superconductive vibrations, DP] :
and nodes made of these substances placed upon a wire, transmitting
resonant vibrations, indicate, by the different orders [octave relative rates, DP] of vibration
induced in them, the rate of oscillations of the atomic constituents.
The phenomenon of rotation arises from the harmonic inter-action of
the dominant [etheric or mind, DP] and
enharmonic elements [radiative, DP] of
the flow: in other words, the first and third,the third and ninth,
etc.; those whose vibrations bear the proportions to each other 33 1/3
A practical example of rotation is a wheel in revolution on its axis. This
is force in its commercial or economic aspect. To accomplish this
result by molecular vibratory action, we must gain control of the
"negative attractive" [centripetal, WR] or
"enharmonic" [radiative, WR] current of
the triple flow, and the problem is then solved up to any limit of
power. (Keely and His Discoveries, 1893).
