# Negative

SVP uses the term Entropy to denote the radiating, dispersive state or condition. The two terms positive and negative have opposite meanings between Keely and Russell. Therefore to minimize confusion SVP tries not to use either of these terms when indicating a polar condition. Instead we use the unambiguous terms of syntropy and entropy in their place, where possible.

"The experiment illustrating "chord of mass" sympathy was repeated, using a glass chamber, 40 inches in height, filled with water, standing on a slab of glass. Three metal spheres, weighing about 6 ounces each, rested on the glass floor. The chord of mass of these spheres was B flat first octave, E flat second octave and B flat third octave. Upon sounding the note B flat on the sympathetic transmitter, the sphere having that chord of mass rose slowly to the top of the chamber, the positive end of the wire having been attached, which connected the covered jar with the transmitter. The same result followed the sound of the other spheres, all of which descended as gently as they rose, upon changing the positive to the negative. J.M. Wilcox, who was present remarked: "This experiment proves the truth of a fundamental law in scholastic philosophy, that when one body attracts or seeks another body, it is not that the effect is the sum of the effects produced by parts of one body upon parts of another, one aggregate of effects, but the result of the operation of one whole upon another whole." [KEELYS SECRETS - 1888]

NOTE: (In Keely's jargon positive and negative are directly opposite to Russell's use of those same terms. To Keely positive = entropy and negative = syntropy. With Russell positive = syntropy and negative = entropy. Hence we would like to NOT USE either of the terms "positive" and "negative", instead use the terms "syntropy" (to center) and "entropy" (from center) to eliminate or at least reduce confusion.) The same holds true for the terms "male" and "female". See Figure 2.12.1 - Polarity or Duality for correspondences to these terms.

"In this system (SVP), force and energy are classified as opposites, working in antagonism to each other: Force as - positive power which initiates aggregative motion, and resists separative motion, in three postules, of ponderable matter in the Etheric medium;" Energy as - negative power, which initiates separative motion, or disintegration, and resists aggregative motion, in three postules of ponderable matter, also of the Etheric medium." [What Electricity Is - Bloomfield Moore]

CONVENTIONAL
Uses the term Entropy to denote the expansive, dispersive, dissipative force, state or condition.

Keely

Russell
"On the contrary if receding bodies mutually discharge each other, this mutual discharge must be the cause of the repulsion of radiation. Is it not true that discharging bodies repel each other? Does not every effect of decomposition or radiation depart from high to low pressures in mutually repellant lines as though pushed outward from within? If this is true then the word 'charge' belongs only to the positive or plus force of graviation and the word 'discharge' belongs only to the negative or minus force of radiation." [Walter Russell, "The Cyclic Theory as the Cause of Solar Regeneration"]

Cayce
"The positive may be considered as the active forces in their activity and the negative as those tending to keep the balance." Cayce (195-70)

Nikola Tesla
"A simple way of supplying positive or negative electricity to the terminal is to connect the same either to an insulated conductor, supported at some height in the atmosphere, or to a grounded conductor, the former, as is well known, furnishing positive and the latter negative electricity." [Nikola Tesla in "Nikola Tesla; Lectures, Patents and Articles", Belgrad 1956]
