When he [Keely] came to the conclusion that it was impossible to use the ether directly as a motive power, as we now use steam and electricity, he decided to attempt to use it merely as a medium for "sympathetic vibration associated positively and negatively with the polar stream."
"Even as the magnet arouses the latent power in iron, the polar sympathetic harness I am now getting under control will, through polarization and depolarization, release the latent energy in iron. By exciting the concordant force in the interstitial corpuscular domain and then after establishing this concordance negatizing the thirds, sixths and ninths of this concordance, high velocities are induced by intermittent negation canceling or destroying the attractive vibration. This negation is brought about by vibrational association with the dominant thirds."
"Enough power lies latent in the earth's iron ore, if liberated and applied to proper vibratory machinery, to produce commercial power for the whole world. This storehouse is actually inexhaustible, no matter how our needs may increase."
"I include in the polar forces, magnetism, electricity and gravital sympathy, each stream composed of three currents, which collectively, make up the governing conditions of the One Universal Controlling Medium. The failures of the past decade will be redeemed by one position control of the polar forces through the polar sympathetic harness. The infinite ninths I am now endeavoring to graduate to a sympathetic mechanical combination will, if I succeed, complete my system and close my researches in sympathetic physics."
"Gravity is polar propulsion the sympathetic concordant of the ninths and but one of the triune combinations. Magnetism is polar attraction, while gravity is polar propulsion. By proper vibrations, the action of both magnetism and gravity can be intensified or accelerated."
"It is only necessary to ascertain the terrestrial chord masses to be able to run sympathetic machinery. When I have mastered these mechanical difficulties I shall be able to control this most subtle force."
"The compound interetheric or seventh subdivision actuates sympathetic polarization to produce action and sympathetic depolarization to neutralize it, in the body as well as in matter. Polar and depolar differentiation result in motion. The compound interetheric is the soul of matter, from which all forms of matter receive their introductory impulse."
"The latent force excited by a sympathizer or resonating sphere, acting both as receptor and generator through the Trexar, in connection with metallic masses, merely extends the range of the neutral sympathetic attraction in the metallic molecules, without corpuscular rupture, and this sympathetic outreach links the neutral center to its harmonic sympathizer as long as its exciter (the primary generator) continues in action. When its exciter (carbon register or aqueous sphere) is dissociated, the outreach returns and again nestles in the corpuscular embrace of the metallic mass. (This would indicate that Keely used a chemical, mechanical or super-chemical "interrupter" such as the Wehnelt, Leyden jar and other forms devised and used by Tesla and others since.) This is the polar sympathetic harness rotation produced in a steel disk by associating the polar dominant current, which leads the triune terrestrial stream, with vibratory attraction on metallic mediums."
"I have demonstrated scores of times the power within certain limits generated by this radiance extraordinary induced magnetic outreach by attaching a rope with a breaking strength of two tons, to the periphery of a 12 inch steel disk, moving at the rate of only one revolution in two minutes, the molecular structure of which was vitalized with 42,800 vibrations per second. When the rope was broken the disk was not retarded and it was not accelerated afterwards."
"I have made computations which show conclusively that, when properly developed, the power of an electro-magnetic wave reaching 10 inches, on a disk 3 inches in diameter, is equal to a lift of 36,000 foot pounds per minute. Ten of such inductors on the periphery of a vibratory disk 36 inches in diameter would represent 360,000 foot pounds at one revolution per minute. Perfect depolarization would represent 360,000 pounds lifted twelve times per minute or 1000 horse power per minute."
"I am devoting all my time and energy to perfect this new system, in which a polar negative disk run by sympathetic polar attraction, will produce electric current. Its construction will be almost as simple as that of a typewriter and dynamos will become a thing of the past."
"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.
"In Trexar vibratory transmission any chord on the dominant will by molecular differentiation, induce sympathetic affinity approaching magnetism in phenomena but without a trace of true magnetism being present."
He describes an experiment in vibratory transmission as follows: "I attach a nodal transmitter to a soft steel mass and the other end to the clustered thirds (3:6:9 in three octaves) of my focalizing neutral concentrator. (The telephone transmitter at the near end of the Trexar.) Another nodal transmitter is attached to the sixth cluster of the same disk, the other end being connected to the resonating sphere of my compound instrument (the resonating sphere) and all are brought to a complete rest. A slight tap on the chladna wave plate now accelerates the normal 20,000 oscillation per second to 180,000 per second. The nine nodes here touch the extreme end, next to the mass being operated on, silver, gold and platinum coming in the order given, both in the respective wire sections and in the nodes."
"If we shift a gold node along the platinum section the oscillatory multiplication will be 9 X 9=81 X 20,000=1,620,000 per second. On transmission of the full chord of the three octaves, it requires a frequency of 157,057,552,198,220,000 per second acting through a soft steel mass on the disk, to cause 110 revolutions per second on the neutral indicator. This represents the multiplication of only one gold node."
"If we now use another node of platinum after the gold node, this vibration is raised to the 81st power or (156,057,552,198,220,000)81 or infinitely beyond computation. This represents the use of only two nodes."
Up to the time of his death, he was still perfecting his "mechanical conditions" in the belief that on his "infinite ninths" he would establish sympathetic affinity with pure polar negative attraction, minus magnetism. He thought this graduation so nearly completes that he was ready to master the group of "depolar disks" on which he was then working. He had completed twenty-six groups and expected, when the twenty-seventh was under equal control, to be able to establish a vibratory circuit for producing commercial power and for the demonstration of the possibility of aerial navigation through negatization of gravity.
