# Positive

SVP uses the term Syntropy to denote the assimilating, contractive, life-giving force, 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.

CONVENTIONAL
Uses the terms "negentropy", "neg-entropy" or "Negative Entropy" to denote the contractive, life-giving force, state or condition.

Keely Definitions

"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]

Russell Definitions
Balanced stillness is the Positive Principle of stability and unity. In it there are no negations." [The Secret of Light]

"We have accounted for the regeneration of the male, positive force which condenses, contracts, generates, integrates bodies which mutually charge each other in the action of contraction." [Walter Russell, "The Cyclic Theory as the Cause of Solar Regeneration"]

Cayce Definitions
"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 Nikola Tesla; Lectures, Patents and Articles", Belgrad 1956]

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.
