A vibration is a rhythmic (periodic expansion (entropy) and contraction (syntropy) change of state; i.e., a periodic interexchange of seemingly opposite polar states. In each wave or vibration there are two distinct yet related unseen sets of dynamic aliquot parts or constructive currents (when considering a wave train or continuous vibration as a stream). This set of attributes is called the vibration's wavefunction. One set of attributes or parameters brings about the periodic concentration or aggregation of the vibrating media while the other set of attributes or parameters causes periodic expansion or dispersion of the media. If these unseen influences (scalar components) were not there and a dynamical constituent of each wave or vibration there could be no change of state as both states or phases would be identical and unchanging. The perceived wave or vibration is then the effect of these unseen causative (scalar) influences, attributes, parameters or currents. The details of these unseen causative (scalar) influences, attributes, parameters or currents are presented in Laws of Being, Laws of Being - Annotated, Wavefunction, Part 12 - Russells Locked Potentials and The Nature and Dynamics of Vibration and Toroids.
"Vibration is the rhythmical motion of a body within itself." [Keely See Oscillation]
"Vibration is a periodic interexchange of state." [Dale Pond]
"Rhythmic Balanced Interchange." [Russell]
"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." [Atomic Suicide, page 109]
"All force is vibration..." [Cayce (900-422)] "So is matter." [Cayce (1861-16)]
"All comes from one central vibration - taking different form." [Cayce (900-422)]
"Everything is vibratory." [Cayce (195-54)]
"As we see manifest in the electrical forces as used by man. This becoming only an atom in motion, and as the atomic force gathers this, producing such vibration as to create heat, light, and of the various natures, by the kind, class or nature of resistance met in its passage in the cycle given, reducing or raising the velocity, or better by the class of atomic force it vibrates, either with or against. These are examples of portions of universal forces." [Cayce (900-17)]
"Vibration is movement. Movement is activity of a positive and negative force." [Cayce (281-29)]
"Electricity or vibration is that same energy, same power, ye call God." [Cayce (2828-4)]
"Life in its manifestations is vibration. Electricity is vibration. But vibration that is creative is one thing. Vibration that is destructive is another. Yet they may be from the same source. As in the electrical forces in the form or nature prepared even for use in the body." [Cayce]
"Q - What is my ray?
A - "Depends on what you are thinking. Remember life is vibration. So is mind. So is matter. As to the ray, this changes. Don't think you sit on a ray and it carries you along. You make the ray." [Cayce (1861-16)]
Vibration v Oscillation
These two rhythmic motions are not the same. Without vibration and oscillation made distinct seeming unfathomable paradoxes arise. For these paradoxes to be understood the difference between vibration and oscillation has to be clarified and acknowledged. In the ground state, at the moment of inflow of the sympathetic celestial streams or Divine Permeation (spark of Life), vibration is one cps and oscillation is one cps. From that moment on in the process of progressive rhythmic devolution, due to the Law of Harmonic Pitch, Law of Harmonic Vibrations, Law of Transformation of Forces and Law of Cycles, the One is refracted or differentiated into the multiplicity of materiality (the One becomes the Many). Demonstrating everything that is has a common origin or One Source and state of Being (sympathy; i.e., Love) regardless of outer appearance (opinion) of separateness and individuality. [Dale Pond]
What a Vibration is NOT
A vibration is not a sine wave. Sine wave patterns are developed from measuring a wave front passing by a measuring device such as a microphone or accelerometer. As the amplitude changes a sine wave is traced. I spoke about this in my 1994 SVP presentation on the video on this page Basic Principles. The typical sine wave pattern merely measures amplitude and Time. Such says nothing about the internal construct of the unseen (scalar) forces involved.
A vibration is distinctly different from an oscillation.
