The cathode in Nature is the still point of Magnetic White Light of Mind from which motion begins to compress in two opposite directions to create sex-divided bodies. Gravity begins when compression begins. Polarization and compression are ONE. [Atomic Suicide, page 91]
"Expansion is the result of MIND-DESIRE TO GIVE by its outward explosive effect from its zero cathode. The re-giving of compressed energy, likewise, is an outward explosive effect, as electric compression ceases, and the result of that effect is to born its opposite and leave great black holes within compressed masses as they return to the zero of their Magnetic stillness." [Atomic Suicide, page 125]
"All motion begins at a cathode point in space, which is all cathode. It cannot move out of that omnipresent position, however, without dividing its seeming energy into four radar-acting pairs in the wave, which is beginning to construct, nor can it do so without measuring out its own desire-energy into countless billions of other cathodes throughout all omnipresence." [Atomic Suicide, page 285]
Every armature in nature gives off many thousands of times more than its cathodes gave to it. Every star is a step-up transformer with four step-ups between the cathode zero and its anode maximum. Each step-up is an octave above its predecessor. Its ratio is as follows: 0 - 8 - 64 - 512 - 4,096. It is this octave step-up multiplication which creates density and raises melting points.

The most obvious fact of Nature is its repetition in reverse of every effect of motion in two-way pulsing cycles. It is unaccountably strange that science has never observed this most obvious of all of Natureâ€™s characteristics. Every cycle in Nature is a two-way, equal interchange between pairs of opposite conditions. That interchange between the equally balanced anodes and cathodes of this electric wave universe constitute its pulsing heartbeat, which likewise is cyclic, otherwise it would not continue. [Home Study Course, Unit One, Prelude]
And you shall know that what emerges from one side of its equator is equalâ€”but opposite to that which is on the other sideâ€”and that EACH WILL DISAPPEAR IN SEEMING DEATH TO REBORN EACH OTHER AS SEEMING LIFE. The anodes of the universe are likewise cathodesâ€”and the cathodes are likewise anodes as surely as you, who breathe out, breathe in again to again breathe outâ€”and as you who live, are dying as you live, and must forever die to forever live. Home Study Course, Unit Seven. Lesson 25
EVERY ANODE IS ALSO A CATHODE AND EVERY CATHODE IS AN ANODE. EVERY CHARGING BODY IS ALSO DISCHARGING,
AND EVERY DISCHARGING BODY IS ALSO CHARGING.
IN THIS MANNER LIFE GIVES TO DEATH THAT DEATH MAY DIE,
AND DEATH GIVES TO LIFE THAT LIFE MAY LIVE. Home Study Course, Unit Eight, Lesson 31
When you have learned the greatest of lessonsâ€”which is how to GIVEâ€”you will increase your abundance in the measure of your ability to GIVE WITH LOVE WITHOUT ANY OTHER MOTIVE THAN GIVING LOVE.
When you have learned that fact you will have learned that you are equally anode and cathodeâ€”equally radiative and gravitativeâ€”a balanced Mind controlling a balance body. Home Study Course, Unit Nine, Lesson 35
All particles of light which are ejected from either the cathode or anode poles as heretofore stated in earlier lessons, are negative â€œelectronsâ€ which are expanding and discharging as their potential lowers on their way to their common equator. Immediately they pass that zero plane they reverse their â€œchargesâ€. Both become positive. They become â€œpositronsâ€. Both are then charging. Home Study Course, Unit Ten, Lesson 38.2
In other words, both poles do exactly the same thing but each is the reverse of the other. Each pole pulls inward to express the force of gravity and each pole, likewise, thrusts outward to express the force of radiativity. Therefore, both are anodes and both are cathodes, for every light particle which approaches either is positive, (for it is contracting) and every light particle which leaves either is negative (for it is expanding). Home Study Course, Unit Ten, Lesson 40
Let us step into the laboratory and 'manufacture' some incandescence. We wish to see the electric current at work performing this operation of obtaining incandescence so we pump all of the air out of a glass tube and connect the ends of it with positive and negative electrodes. Immediately upon dividing the equilibrium within that tube by turning on the electric divider you see a flash of incandescence at the positive anode and an evacuated black hole around the cathode end which would immediately â€œswallow upâ€ the incandescence if you turned the current off. [Home Study Course, Unit Eleven, Lesson 42.1]
The universe might very appropriately be likened to a harp of nine strings, with nine tones in each string. In our diagram the strings are all indicated as of the same length for simplicity. In Nature the lower string is the longest. They grow gradually shorter up to the 9th. Likewise, the tonal positions and frequencies change in each string. In every case each note on each string is one octave higher than its next lower string. You will note that each string begins with a zero and ends with a zero. These are the key notes of each octave. They are the cathodes of every electric anode. They are called inert gases, such as helium, neon, argon, krypton, etc. They are the seed of all matter and the supreme mystery of matter. In them is the answer to the great mystery of life and death, which shall be deferred for full explanation in Chapter 11 of this book, after preparation for its comprehension in the pages which intervene.

All motion in all this universe is based upon the fact that the sexless condition of stillness has been divided into two sexed conditions. The division begins its tension at the cathode and multiplies that tension as the division extends from the cathode toward the anode. Electricity thus creates tensions and strains, which we call electric potential. Electric potential is the measure of compression at any one point in the universe. Gravity is evidenced wherever compression from without is maximum. Gravity is a focal point from which matter desires to explode outwardly. Gravity does not pull inwardly from within as the deceptive illusion of Nature would have you believe. Neither is it the attractive force which Newtonâ€™s senses were deceived into believing, for a center of gravity is a point of maximum electric potential. Gravity never changes. It is never more or less. It is maximum everywhere. It is electric potential which changes by multiplying and dividing the measure of power it is able to express by drawing it from its gravity center of control. It is like the power of a man who can draw but little from the great omnipotence which centers him, as compared with another man whose knowledge enables him to draw more of it. Electric potential is the tension caused by the electric division of the ONE universal condition of rest into two unbalanced conditions of motion. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 4, The True Nature of this Mind and Motion Universe, part 2 of 2]
The swinging of the pendulum is three, as the spectrum and the fulcrum and lever, also, are three.
The cathode is one - but its extended pairs of anodes in the electric current of man, and of space, adds up to three.
Silence is one - but sound springs from silence when its divided moving pair collide - so sound is three, and its vibrations in sequences of rest and action, are also three.
God is ONE in all CAUSE â€“ but in all EFFECT He is three. And all that are three are nine - for all that are three are multiplied by three in this visible cube dominated universe of three dimensions. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 5, Prelude, The Transformation of Man, part 1 of 2]
God's Magnetic cube is three, multiplied by three. Its planes of zero curvature are nine, and its boundary angles are the eight corners and the centering one of the fulcrum Source. Cube wave-fields are the eight mirrors of Magnetic Light which project dimensioned and conditioned forms to all the universe from one wave-field to another throughout all Creation. Divided light opposes its division. Opposed pressures arise from resistance to this division. Curvature arises from resistance to two-way opposed motion. Resistance is gentle at cathode beginnings but multiplies its resistance with cyclonic fury at anode endings. Here is where gravity collisions of sex unions borns whirling, incandescent carbon, silicon or suns, according to the measure of Mind-desire exerted electrically at anode points. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 5, Prelude, The Transformation of Man, part 2 of 2]
Mother and father reverse their spectrum positions, however. The womb of the mother is on the inside and the father surrounds it by a ring, such as one sees in the Lyra Nebula. One can also see the birth of a new star in the very center of that great black cathode hole which the mother womb is. That is the way that God turns the anodes of His thinking inside out to rest, and outside in to again become anodes. God's process of creating bodies through sex interchange is based upon the sex urge of the divided color spectrum of light to void its color divisions and become the White Light of rest from which its tensions were extended. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 5, Prelude, The Transformation of Man, part 2 of 2]

Much confusion has also been caused by the fact that the two poles extended in opposite directions from their dividing cathode and approached each other from opposite directions to form an anode. This led to the belief in the opposite directions of the two kinds of electricity, one of which was assumed to attract and the other to repel. The answer to this is that polarity is not motion. It is the stillness of gravity which centers motion. It is the omnipresent zero. It, therefore, has no direction. Motion is confined only to the electric rings which are forever encircling gravity. Those rings have but one direction in their turnings around their omnipresent gravity controls, but they cause two separate effects. One of these effects is centripetal and the other is centrifugal. Because of these two life-death effects the universe may be described as a two-way opening and closing universe of but one direction. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 6, The True Nature of Electricity and Gravitation, part 2 of 3]
Anode is Hot Center
Heat is a condition which is necessary to the creation of life in inorganic matter and organic as well. But heat is also necessary to create death. Matter would never disappear if it could be kept cold enough. Matter can die and disappear only by accumulating enough heat to consume itself. The cathode beginning of matter is an immeasurable low degree of heat. The anode ending of matter is an immeasurably high degree of heat. Flame is the maximum consumer of matter. All matter is self-consuming but its creation is an effort of its Creator. The Creator gives, but that which He gives must be regiven. That is law, and law must be fulfilled. Fulfillment is automatic, however. It is self-motivated by explosion from within itself. Flame is self-explosive but the heat which created the flame is a compressive effort. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 7, Our Eternal Universe, part 1 of 2]
Polarity begins as sexless unity at the cathode, which is the location for the inert gases in the octaves of elements. From there it is divided into sex-conditioned pairs as they are extended centripetally toward anodes. They again unite as one sexless unity at amplitude wave positions where they collide and become the two hemispheres of an incandescent microscopic, or macrocosrnic sun, which corresponds to a 'loop of force' in an electric current. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 8, The Oneness of Gravity and Magnetism]
Future laboratory techniques should eliminate from two thirds to nine tenths of its wiring. This will follow a greater knowledge of the geometry and mathematics of space, and especially the tonal nature of octave waves, to make it possible for cathodes to find their anodes without wires, as they do in Nature. The cylindrical solenoids of today should be entirely eliminated, especially where they encase anodes and prevent their expression of power by the way of equators. Vacuum tubes for every purpose should be entirely re-designed to conform with the action-reaction mathematics of the cycle, which accelerates and decelerates in cube ratios, as potential is multiplied for one half of the cycle, and divided for the other half. The cylindrical coil ignores this law of Nature, even as Einstein ignored it, and makes very clumsy affairs of step-up transformers and a tremendous complexity in electronic machines, which is entirely unnecessary. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 8, The Oneness of Gravity and Magnetism]
If you look at an electric current in a vacuum tube you will see parallel rings extending from the cathode to the anode, like buttons strung upon a thread. See Fig. 60. Each of these rings is controlled by its own center of gravity in its own plane. Each ring is a unit of a cycle and it is necessary for pairs of cycles to unite to form a mass, or for four pairs to unite to form a sphere. When a sphere is thus formed it is as bilateral as all things else in Nature are bilateral. It extends its right arm and its left one to form a shaft. Each point of gravity in that shaft is also the fulcrum of a lever, which its ring is. The fulcrum is still, and in it is all the power which its spinning lever-ring expresses, but the energy thus expressed is not in the moving ring, it is in the fulcrum of gravity which centers it.

In neither of these two cases has the octave-wave been considered as starting from zero at cathode and colliding as maximum potentials at anodes. More conspicuously in error, than these two above mentioned, is the giving of electrons to the orbits of the inert gases, which are zero in every case and can have no atomic weight at all, for there is nothing to relate weight to in them, nor any complexity beyond the four undivided rings of their own construction. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 10, The Material Nucleus of the Atom, part 2 of 2]
The nuclear atom theory begins with three-dimensional mass. It conceives groups of neutrons and protons revolving about and around each other on both sides of the spectrum. Each neutron and proton is conceived to be a three-dimensional, spherical mass in itself. In combination they constitute a larger three-dimensional, spherical mass. Three-dimensional beginnings are impossible. The electrical Nature of this universe demands a division from one plane located in a cathode. Polarization is the result of that one-plane division. Balanced equal and opposite pairs thus come into existence. Every united pair becomes an anode, which means a hot bodied three-dimensional mass, which is straining explosively to return to its non-dimensional beginning, which it does, but in doing it it leaves the record of its motion in two-dimensional thought-forms in its inert gas. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 10, The Material Nucleus of the Atom, part 2 of 2]
The anti-matter discovery of the last two years will become a great branch of science as soon as the offices and purposes of the inert gases are really known, for they are the key which unlocks the long closed doors to Godâ€™s zero universe of Mind-Light. It is not proper, however, to use the term anti-proton, in reference to the Soul-seed of any condition of motion. It would be just as inappropriate as the use of the term anti-man in referring to his Soul-seed. What science is really discovering is the reality of the non-dimensional cathode from which the electric divisions are extended into dimensioned and conditioned anodes. It is, at long last, realizing that the action universe of motion must have a fulcrum which does not move. This will lead to the placing of energy in the fulcrum Source of this universal mirage of motion instead of in the mirage-extension where Science now places it. When that day comes, science will first question the universal vacuum for CAUSE rather than search within effect for cause. When this transformation takes place in man's thinking science will have leaped ahead one thousand years in that day. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 11, The Material Nucleus of the Atom, part 2 of 3]
What researchers are now discovering is that there are two ends of the creating units of matter. One end is the zero fulcrum end which projects dimensionless Mind-imagined patterns in pairs of bodies, and the other end is the enlarged pattern in motion. Their relation to each other is in the shape of a cone. The 'anti-matter' end is the apex, and the projected 'pro-matter' end is the base of the cone. To restate it in electrical terms, the apex end is the cathode and the base end is the anode pair. As the anode pair always move as separate units of a pair, until they become united as one, so, likewise, do their apice projecting fulcrums seem to move to control their balance in space. Naturally the zero universe is motionless, and no movement takes place at the zero fulcrum, for movement does not begin until division of electric thinking projects a two-way wave-lever from the fulcrum to manifest its energy and its Idea. It is the wave-lever which moves, however, and not the fulcrum, and when balance moves in two directions it is always centered by one, no matter how it moves. See figures 17 to 29. This is too long a story to amplify here, but it is sufficiently relevant to our purpose to print seven diagrams here which will begin the clarification of the method the Creator uses in thus projecting His imaginings into the forms of His imagining upon the three-dimensional screen of space, which seems so real to us. The day will come in man's unfolding Intelligence and inner sensory perception when he can clearly see that there is no real material universe, nor is there dimension. There is an illusion, however, which stands for the reality of the substance it simulates, and that simulation is interpreted by our senses as motion. When man can comprehend that he will then know that what he thinks of as motion is, in itself, but simulation, for motion, likewise, is but illusion. [Atomic Suicide, Chapter 11, The Material Nucleus of the Atom, part 3 of 3]
"The electric current begins and ends at cathodes. Cathodes are still points in the zero universe from which the energy of desire for creation is expressed. Chemically, cathodes are the inert gases of the octaves, which are not elements, for they will not mix with them. They are the seed from which the elements spring, and to which they return. From the spectrum standpoint they are white light from which all colors extend when put under electric strain and to which they return when the strain ceases. From the tonal point of view they are the keynotes of the octave from which one can never escape knowledge of their presence in every tonal harmony. From the mathematical point of view they are the zero of the whole octave, which is more fully described in Chapter XI. From the geometric form point of view, which its basis for motion gives it, the inert gas consists of four rings, one within the other." [Atomic Suicide, page 181]
"The electrical Nature of this universe demands a division from one plane located in a cathode." [Atomic Suicide, page 229]
"To better understand this take the cobalt out entirely. Only the zero of equilibrium is now there. Now turn on the current and you immediately divide that equilibrium, balanced zero into four opposite and equal pairs, all of which units are in perfect balance with their mates. The cathode is also in the exact middle instead of being off-center. That is the way Nature creates atoms. Cobalt is an unbalanced unit of a pair. It cannot be divided into equal pairs when used as a cathode." [Atomic Suicide, page 276]
"If we now put a piece of the metal cobalt between two coils like Fig. 70, the middle will become the plane of highest potential and its center will "attract" a needle if held toward any point of its circumference. If cobalt is thus placed in the anode position, instead of in the cathode, there will be no ejection of electrons and neutrinos from its polar ends. Instead of that, there will be ring ejections from the equatorial plane of maximum high potential, maximum heat and maximum density. We now have the decay process instead of the polarization process." [Atomic Suicide, page 276]
"As a first step we again remind you that Nature creates everything in pairs, and that all pairs unite to form masses. The hemispheres of a sun are united pairs, for example. Try, therefore, as a first mental exercise, to image the uniting of two hemispheres of the sun, which are spinning in opposite directions. The fact that you, yourself, are right-handed and left-handed, adds to the difficulty of the subtle thing which we must explain about our universe, which has led these observers to form such conclusions. What we mean by this is that Nature is bilateral. Everything which is created is equally extended in pairs from a cathode dividing equator. The equator acts as though it were a mirror. It reflects each extended unit of each pair in reverse. These divided pairs unite as two hemispheres of a sphere, which is also divided by an equator." [Atomic Suicide, page 280-281]
