noun: (logic) a self-contradiction
noun: A tenet or proposition contrary to received opinion, or seemingly absurd, yet true in fact.
noun: a statement consisting of two parts that seem to mean the opposite of each other.
This whole concept (Russell Vortex Theory) is so different from what people usually conceive it is near incredible for many. Hence the difficulty in gaining acceptance of its decipherment. Yes, music a part of it but no music (as we know music) is not a part of it. Yes, there are spinning rings but they are also spirals in dynamic collapse and extension. Yes, there are points of their manifestation along a shaft but they are not points but loci of discrete function and dynamic. Yes, there are things but no thing exists. See how it can get unwieldy? We must move from considering "things" to understanding function and dynamic in their places. Ideas are beautifully simple and elegant. The implementation of them can be a complex nightmare. Much of this boils down to resolving seeming paradoxes. [Dale Pond]
"I have been repeatedly urged to repeat my disintegrations of quartz rock, but it has been utterly out of my power to do so. The mechanical device with which I conducted those experiments was destroyed at the time of the proceedings against me. Its graduation occupied over four years, after which it was operated successfully. It has been originally constructed as an instrument for overcoming gravity, a perfect, graduated scale of that device was accurately registered, a copy of which I kept, I have since built three successive disintegrators set up from that scale, but they did not operate. This peculiar feature remained a paradox to me until I had solved the conditions governing the chords of multiple masses, when this problem ceased to be paradoxical in its character. As I have said, there are no two compound aggregated forms of visible matter that are, or ever can be, so duplicated as to show pure, sympathetic concordance one to the other. Hence the necessity of my system of graduation, and of a compound device that will enable anyone to correct the variations that exist in compound molecular structures, or in other words to graduate such, so as to bring them to a successful operation." [Keely] [Snell Manuscript - The Book, MINERAL DISINTEGRATION, page 7]
"You can readily see why it is difficult to find adequate words to explain a so seemingly universal paradox, and why we must use another language than words. This we shall do step by step very briefly - but sufficient to explain why both ends of the cobalt atom in the experiment emit different sized particles around a center." [Atomic Suicide, page 287]
