Table of Contents to this Topic
"Atoms have each a different and definite pitch, at which they naturally vibrate.
Scholium: Atomic pitch is determined directly from its simple spectrum.
Scholium: Atomic pitch is determined by computations from its associate spectrum with all other atoms, as in known spectra.
Scholium: Atomic pitches are more important working data than atomic weights; tables of atomic pitches must be precise."
Commentary March, 1987
Around the turn of the century there was a great debate as to whether atomic pitches represented harmonics of one another or not. According to the available data the question was never resolved to anybody's real satisfaction. I uncovered a paper in the Applied Spectroscopy magazine wherein this harmonic relationship was eluded to by a more recent writer when considering the Hydrogen and Oxygen, components of water. The writer indicated he would explore this phenomenon in a later article. A later article was never found.
Now, the issue died around the turn of the century because scientists were looking for a HARMONIC relationship instead of a MUSICAL relationship. A harmonic relationship, according to the rules of music, is a doubling or halving of the frequencies under study. They were looking for a 1, 2, 4, 8, etc. series of relationships. This is well but there are more relationships than this simple obvious series. What Keely is talking about in the phrase "computations from its ASSOCIATE spectrum with all other atoms (frequencies)" is what the relationships are even though they aren't strictly a harmonic one. For instance we have a relationship of a Perfect Fifth = 3:2 or a Perfect Fourth = 4:3. How do these relate to atomic frequencies? What can they mean? All along we've pointed out that Pythagoras stated the lower the numbers in the relationship, the greater the harmony between the two frequencies. According to Keely's scientific philosophy this translates into greater bonding force or denser material aggregation. The opposite applies to greater number relationships.
Now, in order to determine what the relationships are one must first have the atomic frequencies which can be easily acquired from a table of Nuclear Magnetic Resonances or spectra of the elements. In the last issue was published a table of musical intervals. Match the two tables and you have the true and proper relationships as spoken of by Keely in this law. I have assembled all the known musical ratios onto a lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet (IBM or MS-DOS or PC-DOS compatible) in such a fashion that ANY numbers may be used on it and their respective relationship may be determined. I also have a great number of the spectra assembled though more is taking than I've been able to acquire. The insights given about elements when run through this spreadsheet is mind boggling! Though little is yet understood at this point everything points to a facility of being able to do things approaching on the magical.
A fine example of what may come to light using this spreadsheet is the example of the Fibonacci series of numbers. Currently we use PHI as the derivative of this series but this number is irrational (never ending series of decimals places), but once it is run through the musical spreadsheet we get WHOLE NUMBERS. Exactly what we need to compute finite qualities as for instance when working with Quantum Arithmetic. Mere is the series and their musical intervals:
Fibonacci Series: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, etc.
1 : 1 = Unison
2 : 1 = Octave (harmonic)
3 : 2 = Perfect Fifth
5 : 3 = Major Sixth
8 : 5 = Minor Sixth
13 : 8 = Major Sixth
All subsequent ratios oscillate from a Major to a Minor Sixth always approaching what would be termed a Perfect or Harmonic Sixth. What does this mean? Keely maintained:
"The rhythmic relations in which force acts are everywhere, under all conditions, and at all times, the same. They are found experimentally to be universally expressible by the mathematical relations of thirds."
According to musical theory, a Third is the inversion of the Sixth.
Keely worked, without success, on the theory that polar and depolar current actions were circular. He found success when he found and proved that these forces act with a SPIRO-VORTEX motion. Since we can now see that spirals are governed by Sixths (inversion Thirds) we begin to get an idea about his "Triune Polar Flow."
We can now begin to understand why the Ancients could do things eluded to by so many unexplained monuments, etc., and we haven't been able to duplicate their feats. They did it with simple WHOLE NUMBERS, which can be calculated on the fingers, whereas we can't with our high-powered computers trying to work with irrational unworkable numbers. As Inverson has so long maintained, we can skip all the heavy unworkable math when we work with whole numbers. This also helps us grasp why Keely was able to do so much with so little one hundred years ago.
Commentary May, 1990
Looking at this law we can see that Keely raised the science and art of atomic physics to a very high level perhaps even higher than modern science has yet reached. Modern science uses atomic spectra to determine exactly what atom is being investigated. Chromospectroscopy, Glow Discharge Spectroscopy are both standard procedures for investigating atomic identities by virtue of their spectra. This is an ordinary everyday tool today - but 100 years ago?
What is unique and interesting about this law is it goes a couple of steps further. Keely recognized the relative pitches between atoms and states that this is just as important as the spectra (vibrational frequency) of the atoms themselves. After all - what value has a frequency when it is not relative to another frequency? Not much and probably no value whatsoever.
That an atom can be identified by its spectra is no mystery. That this work was done so long ago is astonishing.
It is curious that modern chemistry still uses atomic weight in their calculations so much when atomic physicists use the spectra in their calculations. This is probably because we have become so specialized now days. It is not right and proper for a chemist to poke his nose in atomic physics and vice versa. However, you will notice, that great breakthroughs of science come usually when someone dares to go against custom. Some brave soul will one day make the effort to bridge this gap between these two noble sciences and Keely's law may be seen to be true and accurate. Logic tells us this is not too far in the future.
For years now I have been writing about the relativity between pitches - is anyone listening? This relativity is all important. The pitches themselves are of little consequence when viewed by themselves. But once they are brought together we have music intervals, modulation and demodulation of each other and the whole host of phenomena associated with such merging of vibratory influences. Without the relativity of pitch there would be no world because the world is a result of the pitches associating with one another. If the spectra are viewed exclusively as separate from one another how then does this association happen? Isolating things from one another is one of sciences greatest mistakes - one that has established the world order that we now experience - cold, hard and without love.
Keely's paradigm contains sympathetic association - what I refer to as love. Through association do things happen and have their existence. This new paradigm reflects the teachings of ancient science (seen everyday hidden in the world's great religions) showing love (sympathetic association) as a prime mover or factor in the forces at work throughout the universe. Without this constant interaction between focalized sources there would be no universe.
The idea that there are only four fundamental forces at work in this vast universe is a joke. Where do emotions and love fit into the picture? Are human beings something foreign to the universe? Of course not, we are a part and parcel of all that there is. Are we not composed of these same fundamental particles? Emotions, love and Will are fundamental forces in human activities - are they not important to human activity? Can this activity continue if these forces were removed from the human politic? Human existence would cease without them therefore they are fundamentally important to our existence. Therefore they are fundamental forces in our universe. Outside of the older philosophies which expound such things who is championing these concepts today? What paradigm of science embraces these other forces and makes them an integral part of itself? Sympathetic Vibratory Physics does. The scientific paradigm exposed and by John Keely and bequeathed by him to future generations.
For these reasons and many more I hold tenaciously to what can be found in his work. This is not an arrogant or self-centered project.
The world is in deep trouble brought on from a lack of seeing or understanding that there is more to life than lifeless matter and energy.
We have ignored nature and those things that are truly important to the survival of the species and the planet. To assume and propound that nature is lifeless and everything must be separated from everything else is preposterous and has proven a deadly paradigm.
It is held and taught that only organized biological structures have life. How does the organized structure become organized if the parts are without some kind of intelligence. If intelligence is a sign of life then even the smallest subatomic structure possesses some degree of intelligence. Since all forms of these particles associate with something else then they must possess love or sympathy one to another. The degree of sympathy can be calculated by comparing their individual pitches one to another. The more concordant the relationship the greater degree of attraction. The greater the discords found in this relativity constitutes the degree of repulsion between focalized aggregates. The principles of music can get us this understanding. Because inherent in music is an understanding of what constitutes harmony and discord. Music is structured around this idea of relativity of pitches - without it there would be no music just as there would be no universe if atomic pitches did not relate to one another. We may even say, with accuracy, that the universe is music personified.
If there were a Grand Unifying principle tying all molecular, atomic and sub atomic activity to the colossal activities of the planets it would be music or those principles which go to make music a living vibrant concern. Polarity, relativity, time and periodic change of state combined with number and progressive vibration evolution all go to make music what it is. Making these factors vibrant and dynamic is the concept of sympathetic association. These are the same constructive characteristics of all known elements or parts found anywhere in the known universe. Without any one of the aforementioned factors no thing would have an existence and with these factors all things are vibrant components of an astonishingly active and organized universe. All things change and all things remain the same. All materiality and all forms of activity owe there existence to these factors and probably a few more I haven't mentioned.
Someday - hopefully not in the too distant future, mankind will come to recognize the principles that bind him to everything else. When this day comes (what some call Christ Consciousness) a new and extraordinary time will burst forth. Nothing like it has ever been experienced in the history of the world. When man sees that he is indeed part and parcel of the universe about him he will then find his rightful place at the right hand of God (Universal Creative Force).
