adjective: having a pair of equal and opposite charges, opposition, sex, dipole, duality.
adjective: characterized by opposite extremes; completely opposed.
See Ion, Ionization

Polar, or the state of being polarized, is sometimes referred to as having two seeming opposite poles or bi-polar, bias, dipole, charge, dual and sex. Examples are a magnet, an electric circuit, male and female, etc. A magnet for instance is polar while an unmagnetized piece of iron is said to be depolar, non-polar or not having poles. It's opposite is depolar; not having a dual state, polarity or lacking charge and discharge. This state of a thing or condition having two seeming opposites mutually intermittently attracted then repulsed has been known and illustrated since antiquity. Religious writings all refer to this dual state of matter and energy. Genesis: Void and Earth, day and night, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Heaven and Hell, celestial and terrestrial, God and Satan, etc. demonstrating the idea that religions are (or were originally) about natural principles and laws which are the causative truths creating and actuating our universe. Native Americans regard the eagle feather as sacred because its black and white colors represent duality or polar (forces or states). When Keely uses the term polar as in 'polar stream' or 'polar current' he means a stream or current of force or energy having opposite two poles.

Russell's Father force is polar while his Mother force is depolar.

"Keely had shown him (Professor W. Lascelles-Scott) a peculiar apparatus, which he called a 'sympathetic negative transmitter.' It had been taken all to pieces for his benefit and put back together again. Imagine a globe in which is a vibrating disk, which Keely calls a 'cladna;' also, a series of tubes which, under certain circumstances, act like small organ pipes. Professor Scott said he could get from Keely no connected account which satisfied his English sense as to what these were but he found that a sensitive ear or hand could appreciate the responsive vibrations from these pipes and the apparatus appeared to be regulated upon something like a definite order or plan. For instance, he discovered that the sympathetic transmitter was sensitive to what is known as B flat, D natural and F and that it was also apparently sensitive to the notes D, F sharp and A. By questioning Keely he found that he regarded the first three notes and their combinations as having a tendency in one direction, which he called a polar force, and the other three notes a tendency in an opposition direction, which he called a depolar force." [Public Ledger, Philadelphia, April 16, 1896]

"And you shall know that what emerges from one side of its equator is equal - but opposite to that which is on the other side - and that EACH WILL DISAPPEAR IN SEEMING DEATH TO REBORN EACH OTHER AS SEEMING LIFE. The anodes of the universe are likewise cathodes - and the cathodes are likewise anodes as surely as you, who breathe out, breathe in again to again breathe out - and as you who live, are dying as you live, and must forever die to forever live." [Home Study Course, Unit Seven. Lesson 25]


The Coulomb law statement that opposites attract and likes repel is not true to Natural law. [A New Concept of the Universe, page 18]

Opposite conditions ARE opposite conditions. Likewise, they are opposite effects caused by each thrusting in opposite directions. It is not logical to say that opposites fulfill any other office than to OPPOSE. Nor is it logical to say that opposing things attract each other. [A New Concept of the Universe, page 18]

"I have but one law for all My opposed pairs of creating things; and that law needs but one word to spell it out, so hear Me when I sat that the one word of My one law is


And if man needs two words to aid him in his knowing of the workings of that law, those two words are


If man still needs more words to aid his knowing of My one law, give to him another one, and let those three words be

Consciousness exists because of unconsciousness, the day exists because of the night, life exists because of death, happiness exists because of unhappiness, and so on and so forth. Everything exists because of its polar opposite. You cannot experience happiness unless you have deeply experienced unhappiness, and you cannot come to the ultimate ecstasy if you have not been thrown into ultimate agony. Hence the meaning of the world, hence this whole suffering. It is not meaningless. [OSHO]
