Keely Laws of Being as applied to the indivdual
I. Law of Assimilation: every individual assimilates itself to all other individuals.

II. Law of Individualization: every such individual tends to assimilate all other individuals to itself.

III. Law of the Dominant: every such individual is such by virtue of the higher or dominant force (Love) which controls these (above) two tendencies. (slightly paraphrased)

Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"By working together as a team, separately but inseparable, in the visible world, these twin impulses were the means by which the substance of 'matter' itself has been created out of the sublime 'UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS'.

One impulse of creativity is: the 'I'ness of ACTIVITY.
This impulse of activity is universal and stems from only one source.
'Activity' is a movement in CONSCIOUSNESS, and CONSCIOUSNESS in movement.
The other creative impulse possesses (figuratively speaking) two faces looking in opposite directions.
They are:
BONDING - REJECTION
Pull towards>>>>>>>> the self<<<<<<<< Push away
otherwise known as

ATTRACTION - REPULSION
Attract>>>>>>>> to - THE SELF - from <<<<<<<< Repel
within CONSCIOUSNESS.

These are the ONLY means by which earthly existence has been achieved.

The entire universe is a manifestation of the 'Creative Power' active within these Twin Impulses of PHYSICAL BEING - creating 'matter' and individual form.
This is one of the fundamental 'secrets' of the universe.

I saw that the 'core' of the 'Personality' or 'ego' as it is now called, had been created
'GUARDIAN of PERSONALITY'
and was irresistibly imprinted with the magnetic impulse to ensure
PRIVACY and SURVIVAL.
For the protection of the individual 'I'ness
This was accomplished by using the two faces of the second Impulse of Being

BONDING - REJECTION to secure individuality.
[Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 25]

Oscar Wilde
“Art is individualism, and individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force. There lies its immense value. For what it seeks is to disturb monotony of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the reduction of man to the level of a machine.” [Oscar Wilde. The Soul of Man under Socialism (1891)]

James Fenimore Cooper
“All greatness of character is dependent on individuality. The man who has no other existence than that which he partakes in common with all around him, will never have any other than an existence of mediocrity.” [James Fenimore Cooper]

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The less government we have, the better, — the fewer laws, and the less confided power. The antidote to this abuse of [by] formal Government, is, the influence of private character, the growth of the Individual.” [Ralph Waldo Emerson]

“The former generations…sacrificed uniformly the citizen to the State. The modern mind believed that the nation existed for the individual, for the guardianship and education of every man. This idea, roughly written in revolutions and national movements, in the mind of the philosopher had far more precision; the individual is the world.” [Ralph Waldo Emerson]

“They [conformists] think society wiser than their soul, and know not that one soul, and their soul, is wiser than the whole world…Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members….Whoso would be a man, must be a nonconformist…. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Henry David Thoreau
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” [Henry David Thoreau]

Cayce
"More individuals become so anxious about their own troubles, and yet helping others is the best way to rid yourself of your own troubles. For what is the pattern? He gave up Heaven and entered physical being that ye might have access to the Father." [Cayce (5081-1)]
