"All corpuscules, no matter how great the subdivision may be, remain an unalterable sphere in shape. Their rotating envelopes are composed of tenuous matter, representing the high etheric in its order, having an affinity for the luminiferous condition. When dispersed by sympathetic vibration, they seek the luminous one, with the velocity of gravity, which is its tenuous coincident." [COMMENTS OF JOHN WORRELL KEELY ON DR SCHIMMELS LECTURE]
""All diversions from the polar terrestrial envelope are but nodal outreaches, induced by the proper order of sympathetic vibration; not dissociations and associations of sympathy; but operating on the same principle as the outflow, or nodal Outreach of the mental organism toward the physical, in its control over it. The latent conditions are in a state of neutrality, as regards action, until the exciter - mental Outreach is brought into sympathetic play. If we dissociate the sympathetic mental from the latent physical, it would be equivalent to beheading it; consequently, the physical would cease to exist as a thing of life; but the dominant - the cerebral would remain in its unchanged form, viz., the high etheric." [Newton of the Mind]
"Disturbance of equilibrium is the prime mover, aggregator and disperser of all forces that exist in nature. The force of the mind on matter is a grand illustration of the power of the finer over the crude, of the etheric over the molecular. If the differential forces of the brain could become equated, eternal perpetuity would be the result. Under such a condition the physical would remain free of disintegration or decomposition.
"But the law, laid out by the Great Master, which governs the disturbance of equilibrium, making the crude forms of matter, subservient to the finer or higher forms, forbidding anything molecular or terrestrial to assimilate with the high etheric, the law that has fixed the planets in their places, is an unknown law to the finite mind, comprehended only by the Infinite One."
