noun: one of two things that are completely opposite; magnet poles, earth poles, etc.

save in polarity with the idea of the infinite. Victor Cousin, in exhibiting the primary elements of the human consciousness, shows that there are two dualities. Let a man turn his attention in upon himself, he will find, first of all, the me and the not me as a dual conception. Apart from all details of information about the me or the not me, different persons know, some more, some less, about either or about the two, every infant, even in the very first moment of contact, is conscious of the me and the not me as an inevitable dual conception. But both of these are found in the limitation they impose on each other; and lo! there springs up here another idea, the idea of the limited - the finite; but this cannot be conceived apart from the simultaneous conception of the infinite; the finite has no meaning save as the pole or dual of the infinite. Here, then, is duality or polarity among the primary contents of the consciousness. And this but the beginning of the polarity of thought. [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 42]

Opposite poles of a bar magnet thrust away from each other as far as they can go. That is the very purpose of the electric current which divides the universal equilibrium. If opposite poles attracted each other they would have to be together in the middle, instead of "pushing" away from each other to the very ends. [A New Concept of the Universe, page 18]

When depolarization takes place the poles seem to draw closer together, but that is because of their lessening vitality. They still thrust away from each other until devitalization is complete. When motion ceases, the matter which it manifests ceases to be. [A New Concept of the Universe, page 18]

The fact that opposite polarities void each other when thus contacted has not been considered as a factor in the matter. It is a fact, however, when two opposites are thus brought together by their seeming eagerness to contact each other, both poles cease to be. Each one has voided the other as completely as the chemical opposites sodium and chlorine void each other and leave no trace of either one after that contact. [A New Concept of the Universe, page 18]

Below, the 6th and 7th Key-notes are repeated, to shew the use of the poles F#, G♭. [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, The First Circle are 7 Keynotes, page 25c]

In the musical clef the sixth and seventh notes from A, the fundamental minor key-note, are repeated, in order to show the use of the poles D#-C♭, and that the colours agree. The use of the two poles, both in the major and minor series, is strikingly evident. [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Diagram X - Minor Keynotes Developing by Sevens, page 35a]
