"If the particles of the air be slightly disturbed from a position of stable equilibrium, every particle makes an effort to return to that position; and it can be shown that the force of restitution varies as the distance from the position of equilibrium ... a musical note is the consequence of the vibrations excited in the disturbed system, and the permanency of its musical pitch is the consequence of these vibrations being all made in the same time ... If the vibrations gradually slackened in their times, as they do in the extent of these excursions from the effect of the resistances they meet, there would be no note of sustained pitch; the sound would then be a sliding descent in pitch, and music would be impossible." - Penny Cyclopedia, Art. "Vibration." [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 24]
"Each thong represents a person's habitual thoughts, responses to people and events, prejudices, hates, animosities, anxieties, sorrows, all of which bind him down and shut out the Light from his inner vision drawn from the 'Creative Power'. Thus he enters into darkness but does not know it. He believes he is growing up and becoming mature in the ways of the world which will enable him to forge ahead and make 'good' - become successful - the aim of most people on earth.
In fact, the more mature he becomes and versed in worldly ways, the more densely do his chains and thongs imprison him within the grip of the twin IMPULSES of 'Bonding-Rejection'.
Furthermore, each chain is forged out of selfish and deceitful desires, greed, aggression, violence and rape. These chains hang heavy around him and burden the psyche, which is the 'creative consciousness power' deep within him. Chain and thong will bind him tighter with every passing year until he realizes what he is doing to himself and sincerely repents each thong and chain and makes due restitution to others whom he has harmed." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 17]
