"He (Keely) mentions the following frequencies, measured in sound colors: Molecular frequency inducted in Homexar by harmonic thirds, 100,000,000 that inducted by enharmonic sixths, 300,000,000, that induced by diatonic ninths, 900,000,000, that inducted by dominant etheric sixths, 8,100,000,000, that inducted by interetheric ninths, 24,300,000,000. In the trexar the "compounding of the triple-triple (chords in three octaves) will give a frequency from the ninth node that, set down, would make a "string of figures a mile long." [Snell Manuscript]

"The nearest approach to molecular uniformity in metallic masses is in the wire drawn for commercial uses, gold and platina being the nearest to freedom from differentiation. But even these wires, when tested by a certain condition of the first order of intensified molecular vibration for a transferring medium between centers of neutrality, I find to be entirely inadequate for the transfer of concordant unition, as between one and the other, on account of nodal interferences. We can appreciate the difficulty of converting such a medium to a uniform molecular link, by knowing that it can be accomplished only after removing all nodal interferences, by inducing between the nodal waves a condition in which they become subservient to the inter-sympathetic vibratory molecular link of such structure or wire."
