Where to begin learning SVP engineering dynamics? The Carnot Cycle is all about compression and expansion of gases with temperature changes. The gases can be anything from molecular gases to etheric (plasma) ultra-gases.
The Russell material is filled with conversation about compression, expansion, pressure, temperature and volume. His Locked Potentials include these "dimensions" as does Keely’s motor work using molecular through interetheric gases.
The Carnot Cycle has been investigated every conceivable way. So the classical physics are well known concerning it. The Stirling Engines all use this cycle as does all refrigeration systems. As it is newtonian or classical physics and mechanics it does not lend itself to nonclassical investigations even though many have tried to go there. Using SVP vibratory dynamics the Carnot Cycle dynamics can be viewed from that angle which some would call nonclassical. I agree.
The problem with linear numbers that just about everybody uses as in for instance music do not apply directly to these classical and nonclassical dynamics. Russell even said that himself in The Universal One chapter on Tone. (I did with some novel efforts bridge that particular gap.) The engineering fields that apply to these dynamics are:
including fractal and algebraic geometries.
SVP is about all these terms and more. Most people are not familiar with them. Hence most people miss SVP because these terms are outside their world view. Only a rare few individuals are able and willing to put forth the effort and time to master (and hopefully use) these concepts.
The above do not include (but can) the nature and dynamics of electromagnetism and light - extensively mentioned by Russell. They also do not include the nature and dynamics of Mind - also extensively written about by Russell and Keely. These additional fields would be quantum/nonclassical extensions of the aforementioned Carnot dynamics.
Also, in case you haven’t figured it out yet, vibration and oscillation are all about the above dynamics - expansion and compression of solids, liquids and gases. So the real study of vibration and oscillation must occur from these higher levels of engineering instead of the misleading over simplified models so often used.
