"''The value of each is, one to the other, in the **rates of figures**, true thirds. E flat transmissive chord or dominant, A flat harmonic, A double flat enharmonic. The unition of the two prime thirds is so rapid, when the negative and the positive conditions reach a certain range of vibratory motion, as to be compared to an explosion. During this action the positive electric stream is liberated and immediately seeks its neutral terrestrial center [ground] or center of highest attraction.’' [WHAT IS ELECTRICITY]

"The vibration of the polar magnetic flow represents one hundred and twenty-eight thousand four hundred **oscillations per second**, or one-third of the triplet of electrical induction, consequently the magnet must be in pure concordant sympathetic union with this rate of vibration, in its polar field, to become a medium of receptiveness as well as a medium of distribution of polar negative sympathy. In other words, the polar sympathetic flow is tapped at this point to allow of a letting out of the focalization that is diverted toward it by electrical vitalization (6) which represents positive negative concordance."

*pendulum* where *fourth* the length is *double* the oscillations. A third condition in this order is in *springs* or *reeds* where *half* the length is *four times* the vibrations. If we take a piece of straight wire and make it oscillate as a pendulum, one-fourth will give double the oscillations; if we fix it at one end, and make it vibrate as a spring, half the length will give four times the vibrations; if we fix it at both ends, and make it vibrate as a musical string, half the length will produce double the number of **vibrations per second**.

It is a remarkable fact that the numbers for the lengths of strings producing the major scale are the number of the **vibration of the notes** of the minor scale; for example, string-length as 26 2/3 will give the **vibrations** for [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 87]
