"My researches lead me to believe that hydrogen carries heat in a latent condition, but I do not believe it will ever be possible to construct a device which can vibrate hydrogen with a frequency sufficient to liberate the latent heat from its interstitial structure." Snell Manuscript

"What is light and heat, and how are they evolved? and why are they so intensely perceptible as emanating from the solar world?

"light and heat, considered theoretically, belong to the highest orders of the phenomenal. They can only be accounted for by the velocity of sympathetic streams, as interchangeable to and from centres of negative and attractive focalization. In considering the velocity of vibration, as associated with the projection of a ray of light, to be at least one hundred thousand billions per second, it is easy to account for the origin and demonstration of these two elements by the action of celestial sympathetic streams.

1st. Light and heat are not evolved until the force of the vibratory sympathetic stream, from the neutral center of the sun, comes into atomic percussive action against the molecular atmosphere or envelope of our planet. The visibility of the planets can only be accounted for in this way, some in a great degree, some in less. Innumerable thousands, it may be, remain invisible to us by not having the conditions surrounding them, and associated with them, which favour the atomic and molecular antagonistic friction necessary to make them visible. The velocity of a steel ball passing through the atmospheric envelope, at a speed of thousands of billions times less than an etheric sympathetic stream, would be dissipated into vapour in an indefinite period of a second of time. Light and heat, in a certain sense, are one and the same; light giving heat, and heat giving light. The whole mystery, as associated with their evolution, is explained by the bombardment of the sympathetic etheric stream on the dense portion of the molecular, in seeking the sympathetic concordant neutral center of the planetary mass that surrounds the point of focalization.

"The positive and negative interchange of this true sympathetic stream keeps intact the magnetic force of the polar envelope of the earth; making it, as it were, a great magnet of itself. The fact of this magnetic force being universally present, on and in our planet, proves the immensurable speed and power of etheric sympathetic interchange. Thus it is that, from the velocity of these sympathetic rays, the earth's standard of heat and light is evolved and kept in balance. This interchange of sympathetic radiation, between the solar world and its system of planets, equates the sympathetic volume by the reception of the full amount expended on sympathetic distribution; thus showing the never-ending restoration of equilibrium by the same medium that disturbs it during intermittent sympathetic action. There are very many facts in vibratory physics which prove that the volume of heat, supposed by many to emanate from the sun, if concentrated upon a centre of the volume represented by the sun, would give enough focal force, if projected upon the system of planets that is under its control, to vaporize then in one month's time. A ray of heat one billion times greater than the whole volume of the sun represents could not pass through the dark vacuous boundaries which lie between us and the sun without being neutralized and absorbed." [Vibratory Physics - The Connecting Link between Mind and Matter]

"All moving bodies of visible matter produce heat as according to their velocity. The flow of gases only induces thermal reduction from molecular friction. By this term it must not be understood that the molecules actually come in contact, and rub against each other. There is no pressure, however great, that can cause molecular contact. The area of the volume of the molecule can be reduced by enormous pressure, and the tension thus brought to bear on their rotating envelopes induces heat. The heat thus induced is a positive proof of the wonderful velocity of the etheric envelope. If the molecules were dead - which is an infinite impossibility - to sympathetic vibration, and without a rotatory envelope if all the pressure possible to conceive were brought to bear upon them, it would not induce the slightest thermal change." [Vibratory Physics - The Connecting Link between Mind and Matter]

"The atoms, having withstood the cosmic forces of elemental heat, gravity, magnetism, electricity, etc., already existing, cannot be altered by those same elemental forces, much less by these forces in the hand of man." [JOHN ERNST WORRELL KEELY]

"The peculiar conditions as associated with the gaseous elements of which water is composed, as regards the differential volume and gravity of its gases, make it a ready and fit subject of vibratory research. In submitting water to the influence of vibratory transmission, even on simple thirds, the high action induced on the hydrogen as contrasted with the one on the oxygen (under the same vibratory stream) causes the antagonism between these elements that induces dissociation. The differential antagonistic range of motion, so favoring the antagonistic thirds as to become thoroughly repellant. The gaseous element thus induced and registered, shows thousands of times much greater force as regards tenuity and volume than that induced by the chemical disintegration of heat, on the same medium. " [THEORY AND FORMULA OF AQUEOUS DISINTEGRATION]

Heat is a form of Ether
"No molecular structure can contain and hold the ether of the seventh subdivision, not even that lowest order - ether of the fourth subdivision - which is liberated as heat in chemical action." Snell Manuscript

Dr. Schimmel's comments upon the phenomena of heat, chemical affinity, molecular vibration, etc., are noticed by Mr. Keely as follows:-

"All conditions where chemical assimilation takes place induce heat; simply because the sympathetic unition of the molecular concordants move towards each other with wonderful percussive velocity. Heat is the result in the following order:-

"1st. Molecular percussion. 2nd. Molecular rupture. 3rd. Inter-molecular assimilation. 4th. Equation by vibration.

"Luminosity can never be induced by molecular vibration." [COMMENTS OF JOHN WORRELL KEELY ON DR SCHIMMELS LECTURE]

"These conditions of luminosity (luminiferous ether) have no thermal force associated with them; although, paradoxically, all thermal conditions emanate from that source. The tenuity of this element accounts for it. It is only when these sympathetic streams come in conflict with the cruder elementary conditions, either the molecular or atomic, that heat is evolved from its latent state, and a different order of light from the etheric luminous is originated, which has all the high conditions of thermal force associated with it; the sun being the intermediate transmitter. Thus is shown the wonderful velocity of these sympathetic streams emanating from the celestial." Keely and His Discoveries pg 271

"Heat and light do not exist in space. The percussion of the vibratory sympathetic streams emanating from the neutral center of the sun, evolves them from the earth's atmospheric envelope. The interchangeability of light and heat, which are in a certain sense, one and the same, has been a mystery. However, this is explained by the sympathetic etheric stream bombarding the dense portion of the molecular in seeking its sympathetic concordant focalized neutral center in the planetary or molecular mass." [(underline added)]

"There is no thermal accompaniment to self-luminescence evolved by vibrational frequency of the ether (seventh subdivision) and yet, paradoxically, all thermal conditions emanate from those same etheric vibrations. This is accounted for by the tenuity of the ether. Only when the streams come in contact with crude matter is heat evolved from its latent state. Accompanying this evolved heat is a different order of light from the luminiferous ether, this being a translation through the neutral center of the molecule of the sympathetic streams into radiations of heat and light."

"The celestial current or etheric dominant which is also the prime third of the triune electric flow induces "aqueous disintegration" and "thermal concentration" and these two "prime conductors" display a "coincident sympathetic chord" with the celestial current. They are themselves the link between the terrestrial and celestial. The absence of the sun on one side of the earth and the absence of water on one side, would make terrestrial magnetism and electricity static - the highest order of chaos."

"The heat generated by the electric stream is caused by the velocity of the triple subdivision at its point of dispersion as each component seeks its medium of affinity."

"Heat is a vibro-atomic element with a frequency at its greatest intensity of not more than 14,000 per second and is latent in all matter, visible (observable) and invisible (non-observable). This element in varying degrees of intensity, is liberated together with light by the velocity of the sympathetic flow from the sun, the intensity varying with the angle of this sympathetic projectment in the terrestrial atmosphere."

"Thermal radiation (and its accompaniment, thermal vacuum or cold) comes below the first atomic (probably atomic). Since its vibratory frequency is so low and its effects so considerable, it probably will be found to vibrate in the dominant mode.

"Radiant heat" is that property of the element heat, after its liberation from corpuscular imprisonment, by means of which it reaches out for reabsorption and return to its sympathetic environment. [See aurora]

"All moving bodies of visible matter produce heat according to their velocity. The flow of gases induces "thermal reduction" (transmutation) to the thermal element) from molecular friction. The molecules never actually come in contact with, or rub each other, and no pressure, however great, can cause molecular contact. However, the molecular volume can be reduced by enormous pressure and the tension on their rotating etheric envelopes induces heat. This induction of heat is a positive proof of the wonderful rotating frequency of the rotating envelope. Were the molecules dead to sympathetic vibration and possessing no rotating etheric envelope, all molecular volumes would be compressible and thermal change in the slightest degree could not result from pressure." Snell Manuscript

Keely and His Discoveries

"The origin of heat and light is easily accounted for by the action of the sympathetic celestial streams, when we consider the vibratory frequency of light as say 500,000,000,000,000 per second. Heat and light belong to the highest order of the phenomenal and can only be accounted for by considering sympathetic streams under high velocity as being interchangeable both to and from focalized negative attractive centers." Snell Manuscript

"Radiation is the term used to express the reaching out of the thermal element, after its liberation from its corpuscular imprisonment, to be re-absorbed or returned again to its sympathetic environment; teaching us a lesson in the equation of disturbance of sympathetic equilibrium." Keely and His Discoveries pg 273

"Heat Keely calls "thermal concentration." Of its origin he says "The celestial sympathetic streams (inflowing currents) percussing on the earth's dense atmosphere, wrest from atomic confinement by their infinite velocities the latent energies we call heat and light." The sun is the intermediate transmitter of these celestial streams." Snell Manuscript

"In reply to the question, "What do you include in the polar forces?" Keely answers, "Magnetism, electricity, and gravital sympathy; each stream composed of three currents, or triune streams, which make up the governing conditions of the controlling medium of the universe: the infinite ninths that I am now endeavouring to graduate to a sympathetic mechanical combination, will, if I succeed, close my researches in sympathetic physics, and complete my system. These sympathetic streams from celestial spaces, percussing on the dense atmospheric environment of our earth, by their infinite velocities, wrest from their atomic confinement the latent energies which we call heat and light." Keely, Appendix II

"Heat may be classified as a vibro-atomic element, not exceeding 14,000 vibrations per second at its greatest intensity, latent in all conditions of matter both visible (observable) and invisible (non-observable). The velocity of the sympathetic flows which emanate from our solar world, the sun, coming into contact with our atmospheric medium, liberates this element in all the different degrees of intensity that give warmth to our earth. Light is another resultant; the different intensities of which are produced according to the different angles of this sympathetic projectment." [See Refraction]

"The light that emanates from a glow worm is the resultant of the action of the sympathetic medium of the insect on a center of phosphorescent matter, which is included in its structure. The resultant of the two conditions are quite different, but they are governed by the same laws of sympathetic percussion." Snell Manuscript


The action of Nature's sympathetic flows regulates the differential oscillatory range of motion of the planetary masses as regards their approach toward and recession from each other. These flows may also be compared to the flow of the magnet which permeates the field, existing between the molecules themselves, sensitising the combined neutral centres of the molecules without disturbing, in the least, the visible molecular mass itself. In the planetary masses - balanced as it were in the scales of universal space, floating like soap-bubbles in a field of atmospheric air, the concentration of these sympathetic streams evolves the universal power which moves them in their oscillating range of motion to and from each other. This sympathetic triple stream focalises and defocalises on the neutrals of all such masses polarising and depolarising, positive and negative action, planetary rotation, etc., etc.. It is thus that all the conditions governing light, heat, life, vegetation, motion, are all derived from the velocity of the positive and negative interchange of celestial sympathy with the terrestrial.

Every harmonious condition of Nature's evolutions is governed by one incontrovertible law; that of concordant assimilative harmony. This concordant key is the ruling one over all the antagonistic, negative, discordant ones; the one that diverts the disturbance of sympathetic equilibrium to one general concentrative centre for redistribution. Harmony concentrates, Harmony distributes. The focalising point of concordant sympathetic concentration is the percussive electric field, where the velocity of its sympathetic streams rebounds with a power that throws them far out into universal space; and so far beyond their equative centre of equilibrium, as to bring them in sympathy with the universal attraction of the combined neutral centres of all planetary masses.

Heat, commentary on its conventional use
Heat is often used as a determination of energy. So much heat equals so much energy. This is misleading in that heat is an effect of certain vibratory conditions or states (cause). [See Bjerknes Effect]

Heat and Cold are not things. They are a state or condition. [See 12.11 - Eighteen Attributes or Dimensions]

"Step No. 2. The cylindrical coil made for the creation of an electric field does not, in any respect, conform with the electric current, which divides the stillness of cathodes into moving pairs, for the purpose of multiplying the motion of those moving pairs to create the heat and compression necessary to simulate the IDEA, which concentrated electric Mind-thinking desires to give objective expression to." [Atomic Suicide, page 273]

The mathematical scales, if followed out regardless of other laws which rule in music, would read like a chapter in Astronomy. They would lead us on like the cycles of the moon, for example. In 19 years we have 235 moons; but the moon by that time is an hour and a-half fast. In 16 such cycles, or about 300 years, the moon is about a day fast; this, of course, is speaking roughly. This is the way seemingly through all the astronomical realm of creation. And had we only the mathematical ratios used in generating the notes of the scale as the sole law of music, we should be led off in the same way. And were we to follow up into the inaudible region of vibrations, we should possibly find ourselves where light, and heat, and chemical elective motions and electric currents are playing their unheard harmonies; or into the seemingly still region of solid substances, where an almost infinite tremor of vibrations is balancing the ultimate elements of the world. Music in this case would seem like some passing meteor coming in from among the silent oscillations of the planetary bodies of the solar system, and flashing past with its charming sound effects, and leaving us again to pass into the higher silence of those subtle vibrations to which we have referred, having no infolding upon itself, no systematic limit, no horizon. But music is not such a passing thing. Between the high silence of these intense vibrations, and the low silence of oscillating pendulums and revolving planets, God has constituted an audible sphere of vibrations, in which is placed a definite limit of systematic sounds; seven octaves are carried like a measuring line round twelve fifths; and motion and rest unite in placing a horizon for the musical world, and music comes [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 39]
