Stable and Unstable Equilibrium

Keely
"The power of attractive vibration of the solar forces is the great coincident towards which the terrestrial magnetic sympathetic flow is diverted. This force is the celestial current that makes up the prime third of the triple association. It also induces aqueous disintegration and thermal concentration, the two prime conductors towards this coincident chord of sympathy with itself. Without this aqueous disintegration there would be no connective link between the celestial and terrestrial. There would exist nothing but a condition of luminous radiation on the order of the aurora - a reaching out for the concordant without any sympathetic diversion to create unstable equilibrium of terrestrial magnetism. In fact under such a condition, the absence of the sun on one side, or the absence of water on the other, the magnetic or electric force would remain in a stable state of equilibrium, or the highest order of the chaotic." [Vibratory Physics - The Connecting Link between Mind and Matter]

"In analyzing this triple union in its vibratory philosophy, I find the highest order of perfection in this assimilative action of Nature. The whole condition is atomic, and is the introductory one which has an affinity for terrestrial centres, uniting magnetically with the Polar stream, in other words, uniting with the Polar stream by neutral affinity. The magnetic or electric forces of the earth are thus kept in stable equilibrium by this triune force, and the chords of this force may be expressed as 1st, the dominant, 2nd, the harmonic, and 3rd, the enharmonic. The value of each is, one to the other, in the rates of figures, true thirds. E♭, - transmissive chord or dominant; A♭ - harmonic; A♭♭ - enharmonic. The unition of the two prime thirds is so rapid, when the negative and the positive conditions reach a certain range of vibratory motion, as to be compared to an explosion. During this action the positive electric stream is liberated, and immediately seeks its neutral terrestrial centre, or centre of highest attraction." [True Science]

Ramsay
Different writers have put forth different views of what constitute a musical vibration, but their various views do not make any difference in the ratios which the notes of this sound-host bear to each other. Whether the vibrations be counted as single or double vibrations, the ratios of their relative motions are the same. Nevertheless, a musical vibration is an interesting thing in itself, and ought to be correctly defined. A string when vibrating musically is passing and re-passing the central line of its rest or equilibrium with a certain range of excursion. Some writers have defined a vibration to be the passage of the string from one extreme of its excursion to the other, while some have preferred to define it as the passage of the string from the one extreme of its excursion to the other and back again. D. C. Ramsay has been led in his researches to define a vibration as the movement of the string from its central line of rest to the extreme of its excursion on one side, and back to the central line of rest; and from the central line of rest to the extreme of its excursion on the other side, and back again to the "right line," as he calls it, as a second vibration. His reasoning on this will be seen in what follows. (See Fig. 3, Plate IV.) [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 21]

"If the particles of the air be slightly disturbed from a position of stable equilibrium, every particle makes an effort to return to that position; and it can be shown that the force of restitution varies as the distance from the position of equilibrium ... a musical note is the consequence of the vibrations excited in the disturbed system, and the permanency of its musical pitch is the consequence of these vibrations being all made in the same time ... If the vibrations gradually slackened in their times, as they do in the extent of these excursions from the effect of the resistances they meet, there would be no note of sustained pitch; the sound would then be a sliding descent in pitch, and music would be impossible." - Penny Cyclopedia, Art. "Vibration." [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 24]

"By affinity the notes group in chords. The tonic is the center chord, the key of harmony; the dominant is the fifth above it and the subdominant the fifth below it, and these two are balanced on the center chord as the scales on a balance beam. The dominant chord is vigorous and active, tending to soar; the subdominant is solemn, soft, and grave, tending to sink; the tonic is melodious and restful, and in it the harmony of equilibrium. This far AFFINITY." [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 91]


Russell
"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]

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 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]


Hughes
Helmholtz's experiments on developing colours shown to agree with the scheme
—The sounds of the Falls of Niagara are in triplets or trinities
—The Arabian system divides tones into thirds
—Two trinities springing from unity apparently the germ of never-ending developments in tones and colours
—Inequality of the equinoctial points; is the want of equilibrium the motive power of the entire universe?
—The double tones of keyed instruments, the meetings by fifths, the major and minor keys, so agree with the development of colours, that a correct eye would detect errors in a piece of coloured music
Numbers not entered upon, but develope by the same laws
Bass notes omitted in order to simplify the scheme, 18 [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Table of Contents2 - Harmonies]

The inequality of the equinoctial points is a well-known fact. It will be seen how apparent this is in the developments of harmonies. From the moment that trinities depart from unity, the balance is unequal, and the repeated endeavours after closer union cause a perpetual restlessness. May not this want of equilibrium be the life or motive power of the entire universe, with its continuous struggle after concord, even to oneness? "Closer and closer union is the soul of perfect harmony." In tracing harmonies of tones and colours, the double tones of keyed instruments will be seen to correspond with the intermediate tints and shades of colours. The twelve notes, scales, and chords in the major and minor series, the meetings by fifths, &c., all agree so exactly in their mode of development, that if a piece of music is written correctly in colours with the intermediate tints and shades, the experienced musician can, as a rule, detect errors more quickly and surely with the eye than the ear, and the correct eye, even of a non-musical person, may detect technical errors. Although the arithmetical relation has been most useful in gaining the laws, it is not here entered upon; but numbers equally meet all the intricacies both of tones and colours. The bass notes have been omitted, in order to simplify the scheme. [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, The Arabian System of Music, page 21]


Bearden
"The 3-space symmetry of energy flow equilibrium is actually between the energy we input (from its external environment) to the system, and the energy that escapes from the system back into its external environment, either in its losses or in its loads. As we stated, equilibrium condition is a balance between ongoing entropic and negentropic operations." [Bearden, Energy from the Vacuum] [See Chemical Equilibrium]

Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"The DIVINE INTENTION of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS was to express ITs own wholeness through creation by individualising, in physical form, each of the two equally balanced aspects of ITSELF and then bringing them together again in physical form, to experience the unity and wholeness of DIVINE CONSCIOUSNESS from which they originally took their individuality.

As they come together in love and unity of spirit and body, they discover the joy and ecstasy of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS in equilibrium. (This entire process is clearly set out in Letters 5 and 7.) Therefore, the combination of the masculinity of the man and the femininity of the woman is essential to make a 'whole' drawn from the SOURCE of BEING. Out of this combination is formed a whole child." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 17]

"Because 'FATHER-MOTHER' tools: electro-magnetism is in
equilibrium within
UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS
IT will never be detected within SPACE by scientists no matter how they may probe
space."
[Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 19]

"I want you to notice that the equilibrium is impossible the moment that thought is introduced." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 19]

"The equilibrium - the restraint between opposing IMPULSES - 'to move about' and 'remain bonded' creates an infinite spiral of self-contained energy. The SELF-CONTAINED ENERGY of MUTUAL RESTRAINT is beyond the power of individuality to even imagine." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 20]

"You now know that the Father-Mother Creative Process and the tools of physical creation are all in a state of equilibrium within the Universal Dimension, but now that equilibrium is to be exploded to bring about

INDIVIDUAL FORM.
You know, too, that since the Infinite Eternal IMPULSES are contained in a state of mutual restraint, these IMPULSES are of an unimaginable intensity of energy - against which your atomic energy contained within the splitting of an atom is a mere 'pouff', an infinitesimal twitch of no importance.
I want you to fully realise all the foregoing, since your realisation of what happened at the time of the Big Bang will give you a glimpse of what happened at the time of the sundering of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS to permit the creation of individual form to take place." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 20]

"'Father' and 'Mother' Consciousness energies are IMPULSES both restrained within the UNIVERSAL DIMENSION and when they have been released from equilibrium they powerfully perform the work of creation." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 23]

"DIVINE CONSCIOUSNESS is the re-union of the original IMPULSES within UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS which were released to become both the activity and the substance of creation at the moment of the Big Bang.

These IMPULSES were explosively divided and then came together in a state of mutual restraint. They were also destined to work forever in the created realm either separately, manifested as energies, or together restrained in equilibrium." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 6, page 134]

"Bear in mind, at all times, that your SOURCE of BEING is in two states -


in equilibrium and activity.

The ACTIVE state of your SOURCE of BEING is the dimension in which you have been conceived and given individualization.
The EQUILIBRIUM of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS is the dimension of perfect silence and stillness, in which the underlying IMPULSES OF CREATIVITY are locked together in an embrace of mutual restraint." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 9, page 8]

Buckminster Fuller
“The vector equilibrium is the true zero reference of the energetic mathematics… the zerophase of conceptual integrity inherent in the positive and negative asymmetries that propagate the differentials of consciousness.” [Buckminster Fuller, Synergetics]
