Each of the three individual "atomic triplets" composing the intermolecule, is itself composed of three "interatoms". Each atom is surrounded by its own etheric envelope, is governed by the same mass action as in the first and second subdivisions, and has an oscillating frequency exceeding that of the first two, the molecular and intermolecular. The fundamental mode of vibration changes in the atomic subdivision to the harmonic, or true fifth of the mass chord.
The properties of this subdivision, the atomic, are not known to science, except in its electric and magnetic manifestations, which are known to a small degree. It was only in perfecting the Trexar the differentiated wire of silver, gold and platinum that Keely discovered the laws governing the association of the "atomic triplets". He found that compound negative vibration of their neutral centers causes antagonism by means of differentiation and that their attractive power of aggregation then becomes radiant force with great rotational velocity, which is sufficient to carry the radiant force beyond the inner one-third neutral volume of the sphere.
Keely's researches lead him to believe electricity to be but one of the forms of the atom, a "certain condensed form of atomic vibration," beneficial in mild flows and "destructive in its explosive positions." He advanced these ideas at the same time Maxwell's theory of the electromagnetic origin of light, heat and radiant energy, was being accepted by the scientific world as the very dictum of truth. Michelson's work on the isolation of electrons on oil drops has proved that Keely's ideas, held so absurd by the "scientists" of his time, were correct after all. [NOTE: Did Snell make a mistake? Michelson did not do the "oil drop experiment". It was Milliken.] See Milliken Oil Drop Experiment See also Wikipedia, Oil Drop Experiment
"The electric current is the "first and second order" of the atomic vibration a dual force the flow of which is altogether too tenuous to displace any molecules. The highest conditions associated with electricity come under the fourth descending order of sympathetic condensation, in the atomic subdivision, which is altogether too remote to take any direct part in etheric disturbances."
To this subdivision also belong the manifestation of odor. Its unit particles, which are of the atomic subdivision, oscillate with a rotatory orbit relatively large compared with the unit mass, and its properties arise through sympathetic negative interference with all other nuclei. For this reason a glass bottle can contain odor, although the glass molecules, which are, relatively speaking, like a coarse sieve, actually are able to contain the odor particles, which are in comparison as fine sand. The circular motion of the odor particles, because of the interference with the molecular centers which its rotatory atoms avoid, prevents the escape of the odor atoms from a molecular container.
