"The vibratory velocity governing the magnetic flow ranges from 300,000 to 780,000 per second and comes under the first interatomic. This is the first order above odor and permeates the molecules of glass in the compass cover as air passes through a sieve. Being governed by the full harmonic chord this flow moves in straight lines free from molecular interference. [MAGNETIC ENGINE - Snell]
"The course of the magnetic flow comes under the "first interatomic" and as it is governed by the full harmonic chord, moves in straight lines, its sympathetic transmission free from molecular interference." [SYMPATHETIC STREAMS - Snell]
"The action of the magnetic flow is dual in its evolution, both attractive and propulsive. The inclination of the plane on which the subtle stream moves, either to the right or left, has nothing to do with positive or negative conditions. The difference in conditions of what is called, by electricians, positive and negative electricity, is the difference between receptive and propulsive vibrations. They can be right or left receptive, or right or left propulsive. The positive vibrations are the radiating [entropy], the negative vibrations are the ones that are attracted toward the neutral center [syntropy]."
"The negative sympathetic polar stream is the magnetic flow proper, and it is in sympathetic coincidence with the second atomic flow, the electric current is the first and second order of atomic vibration, a dual force, the flow of which is too tenuous to displace the molecules. It can no more do so than the flow from a magnet can displace the molecules of a glass plate when it is passed under it. The flow from a magnet is too fine to disturb the plate molecules, but passes as freely between them as a current of air would through a coarse sieve. [Keely, ATTRACTION PROPULSION ETC]
Notice how Keely uses an opposite polarity designation from Russell. It wasn't until the 1920s when general use of the terms was reversed and the definitions were "set" to the current meanings - having nothing to do with actual form and function.
