"Beyond disintegration lies dispersion, and Keely can just as easily disperse atoms of matter as disintegrate its molecules, dispersing them into ether. The law of gravity appears in the light of Keely's experiments but one manifestation of a law which provides for the reversion of the process of attraction in the shape of a process of repulsion. Keely, by means of a belt and certain appliances which he wore upon his person moved singlehanded, a 500 horsepower vibratory engine from one part of his shop to another, without a scratch on the floor, and astounded engineers declared it could not have been moved without a derrick, to use which would have required the removal of the roof." [KEELYS SECRETS - 1888]
Attraction by Sound see Bjerknes Effect
"Attraction of red cells (small circles) to a gas (cavitation) bubble (large central circle) in a sound field. (a) Initial cell distribution. (b) Distribution of cells after sound has been on for a short time. The cells form a sheath round the bubble and leave behind a cell-free area concentrate with the bubble.
"A suspension of biological cells or body fluid will contain tiny bubbles. A sound field will set these bubbles vibrating, particularly those of a size whose resonant frequency is at the driving frequency. The bubbles become secondary sources of sound and two mechanisms cause biological effects. The first field is a small-scale eddying or acoustic microstreaming near the vibrating bubble. A suspension of red blood cells can be damaged in this way, the cell membranes stretching until they break. The second mechanism is the radiation force due to the fact that if the bubble is resonant, the driving sound field is overwhelmed by a secondary sound field radiated by the vibrating bubble. This causes a small particle near the bubble to be acted on by an inward radial force which varies as the inverse fifth power of the distance from the bubble center to the particle. Thus the pulsating bubble will collect particles to itself as shown to the left." [Young, Cavitation]
Sympathetic Negative Attraction
"Attraction is the mutual approach of aggregates caused by concentrated waves of harmonic energy, tending to move in line of least resistance, by becoming the center of one series of concentric waves instead of two or more series." [Keely] See two controlling points of stillness, Bjerknes Effect
"This power of the neutral center manifests itself in different degrees and in different ways, on the different planes of substance. MacVicar says "The law operates between two poles - assimilation and dissimilation - and by analysis and synthesis simultaneously."
Attraction and Repulsion of Magnets
3:6:9 - This quote seems to clearly explain the significance of the ratio 3:6:9 - "The relative frequency of all sympathetic streams is in the ratio 3:6:9. Those whose relative frequencies are 3:9 are mutually attractive, while those having the relation of 6:9 are mutually repellant." [Keely, SYMPATHETIC STREAMS - Snell, LAWS OF MOLECULAR BEING, Sympathetic Stream, Modes of Vibration, Modes of Vibration - Annotated]
Neutral Center Attraction
"There are several forms of attraction for the neutral center. Any metallic mass can be so impregnated with certain vibrations that it will assume the mental quality of attraction as well as that of repulsion. There is sympathetic negative attraction, which is manifested along radial lines of attracting force. This state can be induced by vibrating a sphere mass with the proper frequencies, which will cause all its component molecules to contribute their properties and powers to the mass-neutral center, with attendant phenomena. This sympathetic negative attraction is not the resultant of electrical sympathization but includes the full triune flow, of which the Dominant or "celestial associative" is the leader.
"Another form of attraction is the magnetic flow. Magnetism has no Outreach, as has sympathetic negative attraction. Magnetism is highly electrical, in fact, is born of Electricity, whereas sympathetic negative attraction is not electrical. However, negative attraction displays a sympathetic outreach for magnetism. Sympathetic Negative Attraction reaches from planet to planet, but magnetism does not, for magnetism is static. Sympathetic Negative Attraction is born of the celestial and impregnates every mass in space, linking itself to all electrical and magnetic conditions and all spatial masses in turn are subservient to the celestial outreach. All the magnet's in the world no matter how differentiated could not induce rotation, but polar negative attraction induces rotation.
"Both attraction and repulsion are exhibited by the action of the dual magnetic force. However, like or unlike magnetic poles become attractive when their frequency ratios become 33 1/3 of one against 100 of the other, simply by sympathetic resonant vibration.
"It was Keely's expectation that he would eventually be able, through use of his infinite ninths a series of these intervals ranging up into the inaudible, and his 27 groups of depolar discs, to establish sympathetic affinity with pure polar negative attraction minus magnetism - a perfected vibratory circuit for producing commercial power." The Snell Manuscript
"Macvicar's illustrations of assimilation "Attraction, inertia, elasticity, heredity, reversion, symmetry, culminating in sphericity or symmetrical cellularity, chemical and electrical action, especially in voltaic action the influence and persistence of this law is most remarkably displayed." [Snell Manuscript - The Book, page 2]
Attraction - Propulsion
"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; the negative are the ones that are attracted toward the neutral center." Keely and His Discoveries Note that Russell uses opposite directions for these poles.
Attraction between Souls
"Souls in their varied experiences... are again and again DRAWN together by the natural law of attractive forces for the activity towards what The DEVELOPMENT of the soul to the ONE purpose, the ONE CAUSE - to be companionate with the FIRST CAUSE!" Cayce (903-23)
Attraction by Thought
"Intensify your thought and you set up attraction. Concentrate on a job, and you attract all the things necessary to accomplish it. You attract the things you give a great deal of thought to." - [Henry Ford, See As a Man Thinketh]
"The power of attractive vibration of the solar forces is the great coincident towards which the terrestrial-magnetic-sympathetic flow is diverted. This force is the celestial current that makes up the prime third of the triple association. It also induces aqueous disintegration and thermal concentration, the two prime conductors towards this coincident chord of sympathy with itself. Without this aqueous disintegration there would be no connective link between the celestial and terrestrial. There would exist nothing but a condition of luminous radiation on the order of the aurora - a reaching out for the concordant without any sympathetic diversion to create unstable equilibrium of terrestrial magnetism. In fact under such a condition, the absence of the sun on one side, or the absence of water on the other, the magnetic or electric force would remain in a stable state of equilibrium, or the highest order of the chaotic. Disturbance of equilibrium and sympathetic equation constitute the dual power that governs all the varied forms of life and motion which exist terrestrially, of which the electric or magnetic is the prime mover and regulator. All electrical action, no matter of what character, has its sympathetic birth by the intervention of that current of the triune flow, which I call the Dominant, with the Polar harmonic current; all sympathetic flows being composed of three currents. They become associative one with the other only near the junction of terrestrial interference. The great vacuous field which exists between the planetary ranges holds this portion of the etheric flow free of all antagonism, molecularly or otherwise, till the associative point is reached; so wonderfully planned by the Great Creator, for instant electric evolution and assimilation with terrestrial centres of attraction. I call this intervention, atomic intermolecular and molecular density. The combination of the action of the triune sympathetic-celestial stream with the same intervening medium induces heat and light as the resultant of these corpuscular confliction with sympathetic celestial and terrestrial focalized centres of neutral radiation. I do not recognize Electricity, nor light, nor heat as coming from the sun. These conditions, according to my theories, emanate from atomic and interatomic interference on induced molecular vibration, by sympathetic etheric vibration, the celestial-attractive being the prime mover. In my estimation this is not at all phenomenal; it is only phenomenal as far as the knowledge of its action in mechanical physics is concerned. Physicists have been working in the wrong direction to lead them to associate themselves with Nature's sympathetic evolution. The expression "Electricity attracts at a distance" is as bad as, if not worse than, the microbe of the magnet." James Clerk Maxwell seems, when theorizing on sound transmission by an atmospheric medium, not to have taken into consideration the philosophy attending the phenomena of the origination of electric streams in celestial space. Light is one of the prominent evolved mediums in electric action, and is evolved by corpuscular bombardment induced by Sympathetic Streams acting between the neutral centres of planetary masses, all of which are under a condition of unstable equilibrium. These unstable conditions were born in them, and were thus designed by the Architect of Creation in order to perpetuate the connective link between the dispersing positive and the attractive negative. The action that induces this link I call sympathetic planetary oscillation." [Keely and His Discoveries]
"Macvicar's illustrations of assimilation "Attraction, inertia, elasticity, heredity, reversion, symmetry, culminating in sphericity or symmetrical cellularity, chemical and electrical action, especially in voltaic action the influence and persistence of this law is most remarkably displayed." [JOHN ERNST WORRELL KEELY]
Ramsay In a musical air or harmony, i.e., when once a key has been instituted in the ear, all the various notes and chords seem animated and imbued with tendency and motion; and the center of attraction and repose is the tonic, i.e., the key-note or key-chord. The moving notes have certain leanings or attractions to other notes. These leanings are from two causes, local proximity and native affinity. The attraction of native affinity arises from the birth and kindred of the notes as seen in the six-octave genesis, and pertains to their harmonic combinations. The attraction of local proximity arises from the way the notes are marshalled compactly in the octave scale which appears at the head of the genesis, and pertains to their melodic succession. In this last scale the proximites are diverse; the 53 commas of the octave being so divided as to give larger and lesser distances between the notes; and of course the attraction of proximity is strongest between the nearest; a note will prefer to move 5 commas rather than 8 or 9 commas to find rest. Thus far PROXIMITY. [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 91]
The intervening chord between the Diatonic and Chromatic systems, B, D, F. - This chord, which has suffered expatriation from the society of perfect chords, is nevertheless as perfect in its own place and way as any. From its peculiar relation to both major and minor, and to both diatonic and chromatic things, it is a specially interesting triad. F, which is the genetic root of all, and distinctively the root of major subdominant, has here come to the top by the prime 2. D, here in the middle, is diatonically the top of the major dominant, and the root of the minor subdominant; and on account of its self-duality, the most interesting note of all; begotten in the great genesis by the prime 3. B, the last-begotten in the diatonic genesis, top of the diatonic minor, middle of the dominant major, and begotten by the prime 5, is here the quasi root of this triad, which in view of all this is a remarkable summation of things. This B, D, F is the mors janua vitae in music, for it is in a manner the death of diatonic chords, being neither a perfect major nor a perfect minor chord; yet it is the birth and life of the chromatic phase of music. In attracting and assimilating to itself the elements by which it becomes a full chromatic chord, it gives the minor dominant the G# which we so often see in use, and never see explained; and it gives the major subdominant a corresponding A♭, less frequently used. It is quite clear that this chromatic chord in either its major phase as B, D, F, A♭, or its minor phase as G#, B, D, F, is as natural and legitimate in music as anything else; and like the diatonic chords, major and minor, it is one of three, exactly like itself, into which the octave of semitones is perfectly divided. [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 101]
The Octave being divided into 53 commas, the intervals are measured, as usual, by these, the large second having 9-commas, the medium second having 8, and the small second 5. These measures are then made each the radius by which to draw hemispheres showing the various and comparative areas of the seconds. The comparative areas of the thirds are shown by the hemispheres of the seconds which compose them facing each other in pairs. The comma-measures of the various thirds thus determined are then made the radii by which to draw the two hemispheres of the fifths. The areas of the three fifths are identical, as also the attitudes of their unequal hemispheres. The attitude of the six thirds, on the other hand, in their two kinds, being reversed in the upper and under halves of the scale, their attitude gives them the appearance of being attracted towards the center of the tonic; while the attitude of the three fifths is all upward in the major, and all downward in the minor; their attraction being towards the common center of the twelve scales which Nature has placed between the second of the major and the fourth of the minor, as seen in the two D's of the dual genetic scale, - the two modes being thus seen, as it were, revolving [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 113]
combinations of dissonance, rests, sounding neither scale nor chords. Dissonance does not express opposition or separation, for there is no principle in musical tones which is productive of contraries; the dissonances follow the attraction of the tonic, or key-note, and the neutralization of the musical disturbance is implied in the disagreement in their motion with the repose of the unit, or key-note. So far is this from producing separation, that the apparent discord is simply a preparation for growth, the life of harmony causing an inherent tendency towards closer union.
