discord

Keely
"No such thing as discord exists in the molecule. Discordance results from chords producing differentiation and may be equated by the proper chord of harmony. Every gaseous molecule is a resonator to any and all vibrations, whether concordant or discordant. That which we term discord exists in sound itself, not in matter." Snell Manuscript

John Stainer
Music: "A chord which when struck or sung requires to be resolved into a concord." [Stainer, John; Barrett, W.A.; A Dictionary of Musical Terms; Novello, Ewer and Co., London, pre-1900]

A combination of tones that are unresolved, jarring.

circumstances. And if we may add D to the subdominant chord of d F A C, so we may also, in other circumstances, add the subdominant chord as harmony to D, thus - D f a c, and no discord occur. There is only the interval of a second between F and G in this dominant 9th, and only an interval of a second between C and D in this subdominant 6th; a second standing alone is a discordant interval, as a poison by itself may kill; but as a poison by the processes of nature in chemistry compounded with something else may be an excellent medicine, so may a second when mixed and compounded with something else in music become an excellent harmony. Music is a great apothecary, skillful in compounds. [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 81]

Mechanical Oscillation: "Discord, indeed, involves a continuous change of phase, and it will be seen that if the penduluums are purposely adjusted for a slight discord, the pen will trace all the possible phases of the approximate harmony in succession." Harmonic Vibrations and Vibration Figures


Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"Until people truly wake up and open their eyes to the full realisation that they are the individualisation of the SOURCE of their BEING which is a combination of PERFECT IMPULSES of Creativity & Love, they will remain attracted to the enticements of materialism, satisfactions of body lusts, and the desire for self-promotion above all others - which ranges from take-overs and strikes in business and industries, and gross disharmonies in relationships to murder, rape and war. Wherever a person exerts his ego over another, angry discords abound.
This is the very first Law of Existence which must be publicised throughout the world." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 9, page 11]

"Most people will testify that laughter promotes a feeling of well-being, even if there was discord just a minute earlier. If a person can genuinely laugh, seeing the absurdity of a situation, where there has previously been annoyance or hurt, the tension is released and friendly relationships are restored spontaneously." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 9, page 14]
