"Potential [is] trapped electromagnetic energy density." [Bearden, The Final Secret of Free Energy]

"Time marks the periods between events. Man divides his time by the periodicities of this planet's revolution around the sun and subdivides it by its rotation upon its axis. These periods are again divided to act as man's necessary time dimensions. The Universal One divides His time by the periodicities of His inhalations and exhalations, which together make one universal constant of energy, and subdivides it into four exactly equal unit constants of energy. These periodicities, and tonal and mid-tonal subdivisions, measure the dimensions of His idea in the illusion of form, Space, time, sex, temperature and other periodicities.

"Energy accumulates during genero-active inhalation by rising potential, and is dissipated during the radio-active exhalation by lowering potential. The periodicities of inhalation and exhalation in all mass are absolute." Russell, The Universal One

"Octave periodicity is an orderly progression to and from the maximum effect of each octave."
"Cyclic periodicity is an orderly progression to and from the maximum effect of the entire cycle."

"Thus may it now be simply stated that all periodicities of all motion of whatever nature, with two exceptions, may be built up on the following extremely simple formula: The two exceptions to this octave periodicity are mass, and tone. Mass means weight. Tone means sound. Mass accumulates all down the entire ten octaves; tone lowers from the highest note down the cosmic keyboard to the lowest.

"The zero represents inertial energy, and the numerals represent the orderly progressions in locked potentials and pressures and orbits. Thinking Mind has devised these orderly progressions as its method of evolving the idea of universal thinking into the appearance of form, and devolving it into the disappearance of form." [Russell, The Universal One; Book 01 - Chapter 15 - The Formula of the Locked Potentials.]

"The stone is densely wound up into a high potential, high melting point state. It belongs in an electric pressure which has caused that state of density, and it will seek it - not because it is attracted to it - but because the vortices of compressing motion are pulling it that way. Every potential state of pressure in this universe has its proper place in it, and it will seek the current of motion which takes it there." [Atomic Suicide, page 139]

"The master-tone of each octave is the inheritance of the original motion of the thinking process of Mind. These master-tones are the "inert gases" which are classified in the zero group of the Mendeleef table.

The state of motion of these inert gases is that of motion-in-inertia."

"Motion-in-inertia is that state of pressure equilibrium which lies between any two masses.

"The inertial line, or plane is that dividing line, or plane, toward which all masses discharge their potential.

"It is the line, or plane, of lowest potential of two opposing areas of potential, where opposing pressures neutralize. This is the plane of minimum pressure of two opposing areas.

"The master-tones which represent a state of motion-in-inertia and are the inert gases, bear the same relationship to the elements that white bears to the colors. They are a registration of them all. White is not included in the spectrum, it has no place there. The inert gases should not be included in the elements. They have no place there. Of this more shall be written later in its proper place." [Russell, The Universal One]

Gravitation is the generative force and radiation is the degenerative force of the universal constant. These are the opposing powers which, within all mass, seek an equilibrium zone of pressure for the potential of that mass. [The Universal One, Book 02 - Chapter 12 - Gravitation and Radiation, page 141]

Gravitation is the generative force of increasing potential and the regenerative force of decreasing potential. [See Syntropy] [The Universal One, Book 02 - Chapter 12 - Gravitation and Radiation, Gravitation and Radiation - page 141]

Radiation is the power of magnetism to dissociate by replacement.

Radiation is the degenerative force of decreasing potential.

It is the power within the magnetic force of reaction to resist the electric force of action.

It is the separative force which repels, spreads, separates, diffuses and redistributes that which has been assembled by the collective force.

It is the conductive force. [The Universal One, Book 02 - Chapter 12 - Gravitation and Radiation, Gravitation and Radiation - page 141]

The attraction of gravitation and the repulsion of radiation is nature's simple method of distribution and redistribution of all masses, so that each mass will find its proper position. [See Universal Heart Beat]

It is not proper to conceive either of these apparently opposite forces as two forces.

The south wind and the north wind are not two winds. They are the same wind blowing in opposite directions.

It is more correct to say that gravitation and radiation are processes.

The one motive force which directs these processes is equally divided into opposite effects, but these opposite effects are unequally balanced. [See 14.35.1 - Keely 3 6 and 9]

The unequal divisions of the two opposites totaled together constitute an equilibrium.

The One force never subdivides into any minus expression of force without counterbalancing that minus with an equal and opposite plus. [See Reciprocating Proportionality]

Gravitation is a synthetic process of putting things together, and radiation an analytic one of taking them apart.

The chemist uses these processes in every action and reaction.

Consider for example the reduction of iron oxide at high temperature by passing a jet of hydrogen over it.

What happens? The hydrogen falls toward the higher potential of the oxygen of the iron which is sufficiently expanded by the high temperature to absorb the hydrogen, and the hot iron is sufficiently expanded to release the oxygen.

This is an effect of gravitation in respect to the oxygen and the hydrogen.

They unite, they mutually integrate, and freeze into amorphous crystals of such extended orbits that they assume the liquid state known as "water."

On the contrary, it is an effect of radiation in respect to the iron and the oxygen. [The Universal One, Book 02 - Chapter 12 - Gravitation and Radiation, Gravitation and Radiation - page 141]


All matter is a record of its potential at the place of its birth in its wave. Masses of matter, like buoys floating in the ocean to mark courses for ships, are floating in space to register the electric potential of the position of their birth.

Whenever matter is in the place of its birth, it belongs there. It is, therefore, in balance. It floats in its balanced field. In that position it is weightless in respect to anything else in the universe. Whenever it is taken from its field center, or becomes an eccentric part of another field, it is out of balance with the two forces acting upon it. It then has weight, and the measure of that weight is the measure of its unbalance with its out-of-place environment.

Weight of matter and measure of electric potential are one and the same thing. [Walter Russell, The Secret of Light, pages 181-182]
