"Carbon is the point of maximum orbital velocity which creates the illusion of hardness. It is the point of maximum integration, highest melting point, most perfect in cubical crystallization, most compact in crystallization and most truly bi-sexual of all the elements." Russell, [The Universal One, page 88]
"Sodium and iodine, or sodium and bromine would make good mates but in each would be a residue of unbalance which would show in their crystallization by distorted cubes of sodium iodide or sodium bromide." [Home Study Course, Lesson 17]
"Another distinguishing feature is the transformation which takes place in their crystallization. No matter what system any polarized separated pair crystallize in when dependent upon three equators and two centers of gravity, they all crystallize as true cubes when united as balanced pairs with but one center of gravity.
"The true cube crystal occurs only in the united pairs, those which have but one equator between them, and one center of gravity, such as carbon, silicon, lithium fluoride, sodium chloride and potassium bromide." [Home Study Course, Lesson 37]
"Light, heat, electricity, magnetism, form, crystallization, sound, mass, the elements and compounds of elements, time, space, attraction, gravitation, force, energy, inertia, sex, life, death, sleep, memory, the souls of all things and the complex ideas of all things, in fact, all that man can comprehend of this universe, can be spelled out, in their beginnings, on these two opposing spiral waves within one sphere, and on through to their endings in nine other increasingly larger though flattening spheres, or ellipsoids." Russell, [The Universal One, Chapter 4]
"It is the beginning of the generative concentration of light into that state which man calls "heat" and its radiation into that which man calls "cold." It is the beginning of integration and disintegration of light energy into the appearance and disappearance of that which man calls "matter." It is the beginning of the crystallization of light units into that which man calls solids of matter." Russell, [The Universal One, Chapter 18]
"The rebound into lower pressures and the sudden cooling of the electric whirling particle by the expansion of the lower pressure causes it to solidify.
"It is turned into ice. It freezes.
"Matter registers its energy through temperature dimension of heat and cold in solids of light which man calls "crystals." Crystals are but apparent solids of light sustained in that illusion of appearance by motion.
"Nothing concerning the basic principle or law governing crystallization is known by modern science. It is known by experiment and observation that all elements, or compounds, crystalline in any one of six different classes, but science knows no way of determining crystallic formation, or cleavages, twinning, or other characteristics other than by observation or experiment.
"In a later volume the fundamental laws underlying crystallisation will be charted exactly.
"The harder it freezes the more solid it appears to be.
"The slower its motion the harder it freezes.
"The faster its motion the more quickly it melts.
"Then two more opposite elements appear.
