"There is a celestial mind force, a great sympathetic force which is life itself, of which everything is composed." [Keely see Celestial Radiation]
"All the forces of nature, writes Keely, proceed from the one governing force; the source of all life, of all energy." [Vibratory Physics - The Connecting Link between Mind and Matter]
"If matter without form preceded creation of energy, it was only when life was given that the atoms became grouped in individualities through their intrinsic properties. The hypothesis of Macvicar and demonstrations of Keely pivot on the law of assimilation "providing at once for the free and the forced ... for mind and matter, and placing them ... in relationship." This law is summarized as "Every individualized object ... assimilates itself to itself in successive moments of its existence and all objects tend to assimilate one another." In its own nature, matter is wholly plastic or devoid of fixed innate properties wholly assimilative - both with respect to its own portions and to surrounding objects, as well as its position in space and insofar as it is capable, to the mind of its Creator. In the ether are constructed groups of ethereal elements generating material elements." [JOHN ERNST WORRELL KEELY]
"When our learned men are forced to admit that "all motion is thought", that "all nature is the language of One in whom we live, and are moved, and have our being", the attempts to evolve life out of chemical elements will cease; the Mosaic records will no longer be denied, which tell us that the Creator's law for living organisms is that each plant seeds, and each animal bears, after his kind; not that each seeds and bears after another kind. The doctrine of evolution, as made known to us in Geology, is a fundamental truth; proving that "there has been a plan, glorious in its scheme, perfect in system, progressing through unmeasured ages, and looking ever toward man and a spiritual end"." [True Science]
WHAT KEELY MEANS BY "SYMPATHETIC FLOWS"
The action of Nature's sympathetic flows regulates the differential oscillatory range of motion of the planetary masses as regards their approach toward and recession from each other. These flows may also be compared to the flow of the magnet which permeates the field, existing between the molecules themselves, sensitising the combined neutral centres of the molecules without disturbing, in the least, the visible molecular mass itself. In the planetary masses - balanced as it were in the scales of universal space, floating like soap-bubbles in a field of atmospheric air, the concentration of these sympathetic streams evolves the universal power which moves them in their oscillating range of motion to and from each other. This sympathetic triple stream focalises and defocalises on the neutrals of all such masses polarising and depolarising, positive and negative action, planetary rotation, etc., etc.. It is thus that all the conditions governing light, heat, life, vegetation, motion, are all derived from the velocity of the positive and negative interchange of celestial sympathy with the terrestrial.
Every harmonious condition of Nature's evolutions is governed by one incontrovertible law; that of concordant assimilative harmony. This concordant key is the ruling one over all the antagonistic, negative, discordant ones; the one that diverts the disturbance of sympathetic equilibrium to one general concentrative centre for redistribution. Harmony concentrates, Harmony distributes. The focalising point of concordant sympathetic concentration is the percussive electric field, where the velocity of its sympathetic streams rebounds with a power that throws them far out into universal space; and so far beyond their equative centre of equilibrium, as to bring them in sympathy with the universal attraction of the combined neutral centres of all planetary masses.

"All material bodies, organic and inorganic, live and grow by increasingly fast motion. They also die and decay by increasingly fast motion." [Atomic Suicide, page 21]

"Now look at your chart and find carbon in the fourth octave symbolized by a cube centering a sun. From that point on death begins and multiplies its power to die in the same ratio as it has multiplied its power to live. In other words, it now accumulates as much centrifugal speed to disappear into its invisible Source as it accumulated centripetal speed on the way to its destination in carbon. The only difference is that the genero-active speed of compression is inward from the outside until maturity in carbon, and after that its radio-active speed explodes outward from the inside. In each case the inward speed of 186,400 miles per second is reached at the maximum point of life in carbon, and the outward speed is reached at the amplitude of the 9th octave, just beyond the transuranium elements, which is the maximum point of universal death." [Atomic Suicide, page 34-35]
"Life is but the inward flow of MY thinking's divided pulsing, and death is its outward flow. [Atomic Suicide, page 235]
"We, therefore, repeat words written in earlier pages of this book, which say that our bodies express life only by the fast generoactive centripetal motion which charges and polarizes, and that they die only by the fast radioactive centrifugal motion, which discharges and depolarizes." [Atomic Suicide, page 265]
"LIFE and CONSCIOUSNESS, I realized, were one and the same thing.
It was impossible to say 'This is LIFE' and 'That is CONSCIOUSNESS'.
Consciousness was Life, and Life was Consciousness and was the 'Creative Power' of both; DIVINE UNIVERSAL MIND' beyond, within and behind the universe." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 11]
"For you to fully understand what I am talking about, I want you to strive to VISUALISE & REALISE that the Nature of Divine Consciousness of Universal Equilibrium is limitless Power, since the equilibrium-harmony arises out of equal constraint between the universal impulses of the:
the male and female,
intelligence and love,
the will to experience and the will to remain acquiescent,
the yearning to be active and the yearning to hold back and maintain the status quo,
in order to form bonds and stability.
"These primal IMPULSES of Being, as I explained in Letter 4, are the 'Reality' which has given life, form, shape, being to all visible things.
"This dimension is a state of beauty, joy, harmony, rapturous ecstasy, reverence, intelligence, love. It is all that the earth can demonstrate - but on a scale beyond your even remotest conception.
"Try to take into your consciousness the meaning of the two foregoing paragraphs. Understanding and making the meaning your very own, will change your whole perspective of your Divine origins and of existence itself. In these paragraphs directly above, I have described to you - the nature and essence of LIFE - which comes into action within the sperm and ovum when they are united in giving form to a child.
"This is your truth, your reality, your soul, psyche, your deepest state of being.
"Instinctively you are aware of this. The baby is the embodiment of joy. The joy it expresses as it develops consciousness of its relationships and environment, comes out of the deep well of Divine LIFE Which has grown it cell by cell, according to genetic instructions, into its present form." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 7, page 166-167, (12-13)]
"These LAWS are so much part of life that they are never questioned. They are undeviating and consistent - but there would be no such laws if there were no Creative Intelligent Power manifesting Itself through the universe. These 'principles' of creation, the characteristics of the Creative Power Itself, are as follows:" [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 13]
"...the expression of life in the material world is the expression of the force called God." [Cayce (1152)]
"For, life is continued; life itself is a consciousness, a gift of an infinite influence we may call God." [Cayce 2399-1]
"For man IS flesh, as man is of Divine origin. And the mind of man, though it may - through the prunings, the trainings, the guidings in that direction for ages upon ages - become somewhat purified, only that portion of the mind that IS divine can know, does know, that life IS the manifestation of God in motion." [Cayce (1298-1) (underline added)]
"For in patience, as He gave, ye become aware of thy soul. For as the entity finds, we are body, we are mind, we are soul. The soul is in the image of God, thus eternal, everlasting. Life in its expression, then, in a mental and in a material world, is only a mental and material manifestation of the soul-entity; that which was brought into being as a part of Creative Forces. Thus it is eternal." [Cayce (3459-1)]
"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."
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)]
"All life IS one, all conditions then are relative as one to another... For what is WAS, and ever will be; so far as the spirit, the life, the soul is concerned - even of things." [Cayce (1402-1)]
"Life is creative, and is the manifestation of that energy, that oneness, which may never be WHOLLY discerned or discovered in materiality, and yet is the basis of all motivative forces and influences in the experiences of an individual." [Cayce (2012-1)]
"For life and death are one, and only those who will consider the experience as one may come to understand or comprehend what peace indeed means." [Cayce (1977-1)]
"For hope and faith are living - living - things! Thus hope springs anew with the growth and the knowledge and the understanding of the light on the way, and that life indeed is an eternal expression of the love of the Father; and that as it gives the expression through the individuality of each and every soul as it comes in material manifestation by the weaknesses, we find the strength in the Lord - and in the glories ever in His beauteous purpose with each soul; that purpose that ye might be the companions, one with Him." [Cayce (1504-1)]
"Fear not, I am with thee." This should be upon the mind, the heart; that there may be the renewing of the life-flow in the blood of the body, that the organs thereof may be attuned to the spirituality . . " [Cayce (1089-2)]
"...And as the electrical vibrations are given, know that Life itself - to be sure - is the Creative Force or God, yet its manifestations in man are electrical - or vibratory." [Cayce (1299-1)]
"For Life and its expressions are one. Each soul or entity will and does return, or cycle, as does nature in its manifestations about man; thus leaving, making or presenting - as it were - those infallible, indelible truths that it - Life - is continuous. And though there may be a few short years in this or that experience, they are one; the soul, the inner self being purified, being lifted up, that it may be one with that first cause, that first purpose for its coming into existence." [Cayce (938-1)]
"Hence again might that injunction be given the entity not to be too easily discouraged. Brace up! Know in what ye have believed and do believe, but know who is also the author of such. For life is real, life is earnest, and the grave is not the goal!" [Cayce (1792-2)]
"Life is, in all its manifestations in every animate force, creative force in action; and is the love of expression - or expressing that life; truth becoming a result of life's love expressed. For, these are but names - unless experienced in the consciousness of each soul." [Cayce (262-46)]
R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz
"LIFE is the faculty of reacting.
This formula extends the definition of Life to include minerals. We do not distinguish inorganic bodies from organic bodies so as to accord life only to the latter. We admit that there are organized beings and others which are not yet organized; but the latter bear, in their characteristics, (for example, chemical affinity), the elements that give an impetus for future organization. This, however, will not take place in a continuous fashion, but through the necessary destruction of forms for the purpose of "rebirth" - so to speak - in higher states. It is not the form that is transmitted, but the "permanent" moment of the Substance. This permanent moment (the Egyptian ka) registers the experience of transitory form. Thus Life is, in all things, a ternary complex formed by an active Cause against a passive resistance that is nonetheless reactive in turn. This reaction is the apparent effect, and the whole is the vital phenomenon." [R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, The Temple in Man, page 31 see Law of Assimilation, Rhythmic Balanced Interchange]
"...the force of Life is the expression of the Father." Dialogue on Awakening
"The 1944 book "What is Life?" by Nobel-laureate physicist Erwin Schrodinger served largely to stimulate this research. In this book, Schrodinger states that life feeds on negative entropy, or negentropy as it is sometimes called. Recent writings have utilized the concept of Gibbs free energy to elaborate on this issue." Wikipedia, Entropy and Life
“Life is wisdom; death is belief. To be in wisdom is to be in health, happiness and eternal life; to be in belief, is to be in error, disease, and death. It was belief that Jesus sought to destroy by bringing life and immortality to light in the Gospel; and that life was Christ.” [Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, Life and Death are Opposite States of Existence]
