Keely
"In organ pipes, of a certain calibre, very sensitive waves occur at intervals; as according to the character of the sound evolved; but on a combination of resonators composed of brass tubes of more than nine in number, a wave of sound, induced by certain chords passing over them, produces high vortex action of the air enclosed in them. The vibration of tuning forks induces alternate condition of the air that surrounds them, if in open atmosphere; but quite a different action presents itself when the forks are exercised in resonating tubes, set to thirds of the mass chord they represent. Then high vortex action is the instant result. Vibrators cannot be set promiscuously in tubes, and get such results, any more than a musician can render a musical composition on the violin before tuning it." [Appendix I]

"And all that are three are nine - for all that are three are multiplied by three in this visible cube dominated universe of three dimensions." [Atomic Suicide, page 109]

"Every polarized action-reaction counts up to nine – never more – never less. The wave octave formula for the elements of matter and the color spectrum is nine – being eight, centered by zero, as follows:

upon which our decimal system is founded.
1. The total count of equators is nine.
2. The eight corners of the cube, and its centering zero, equal nine.
3. The eight sections of the divided cube, centered by zero, are also nine.

4. The zeros upon each of the nine equators total nine, being eight centered by zero. [Atomic Suicide, page 113]
