Keely
"If all cosmical action is cyclical, matter, when existing free in the ether, must ultimately tend to dissolve into pure ether again, for, if the law of creation is as a cycle, in which, after development and as its fruit, the last term gives the first, then has he grounds for his conjecture that complication in structure is necessary to the segregation of nervous matter, and the construction of a "myo-neuro-cerebral system" and that ether and matter, after developing a molecular economy, as the mother and nurse of a soul or monad of a higher order than the merely material element, through or by this organism, complete the cycle of the economy of material nature, and eventually touch upon the spiritual world again and contribute to it. This true protoplasm, the ether, Keely claims to ... liberate by vibratory machinery as the medium of a motive power, which he calls "sympathetic negative attraction." [JOHN ERNST WORRELL KEELY]

"The economy of creation is not regarded in this philosophy as a theory of development all in one direction; but as a cycle in which, after development, and as its fruit, the last term gives again the first. Herein is found the link by which the law of continuity is maintained throughout - the link which is missing in the popular science of the day; with this very serious consequence that, to keep the break out of sight, the entire doctrine of spirit and the spiritual world is ignored or altogether denied". [True Science]

Russell
"To aid in making such new thinking clear we will endeavor to express our thoughts by using the language of diagrams and familiar examples, which we will confine within one cycle of the electric current in principle. In thus confining our description of this new thinking within the demonstrable effects within one cycle of the electric current we sincerely hope that future thinking and reasoning will have a better basis upon which to form conclusions, which are not affected by the illusions of motion, that have for so long, and so disastrously, affected human reasoning." [Atomic Suicide, page 286-287]
