Energy is a sympathetic condition inherent in all forms of aggregated matter visible and invisible, ever present in its latent condition. The entire physical Universe is simple energy manifesting itself rhythmically in its latent state in matter, and everywhere, at all times and under all conditions, is exactly the same. This rhythm Keely claimed exists in the mathematical relations of thirds. Since, therefore, every mass consists of vibrations in thirds, balanced in harmonic equilibrium, it stands in harmonic relation to every other mass, terrestrial or planetary. Thus all forms of matter, even as are all forms of energy, become of their very nature interrelated and mutually convertible, one into the other.
Energy is aroused by sympathetic disturbance of equilibrium and by this conservation becomes transferable. It is an infinite latent force. If it did not exist latent it could not be generated and there would be no energy to lose or conserve. The volume of latent energy in the Universe never increases and never grows less. It will remain tomorrow and forever same as yesterday and today. [THE PHENOMENA PROPERTIES AND LAWS OF VIBRATION ENERGY]
"Reception and dispersion are kept up on the atmospheric envelope of the earth by the atomic and interatomic conflict as "between the dominant and the enharmonic". This is brought about by the reception and dispersion of sympathetic streams, the ruling mode of whose vibration is the dominant, and the density of the coarser grades of matter, whose ruling vibratory mode is the enharmonic.
As every mass consists of vibrations in thirds, balanced in harmonic equilibrium without cancellation or diminution of energy, it stands therefore in harmonic relation to every other mass. All forms of matter and of motion are thus interrelated and interchangeable. Through resonance, increasing this sympathy, we can control the states of matter."
