            Portions of this document are graciously provided by

                              Dan A. Davidson

        from his book "A Breakthrough to New Free Energy Sources".

      We of  VANGUARD  SCIENCES  wish  to publicly thank Dan for his

     willingness to share the result of his researches on John Keely.


    John W. Keely, discoverer of Sympathetic  Vibratory Physics, found

    a means of negating the effect of gravity as well  as developing a

    form of propulsion.

    From 1888 to  1893,  Keely  worked  on  developing  his  system of

    "Aerial Navigation".   The first successful test was in 1893 which

    led the way to the construction of an aerial craft.

    In 1896, Mr. Keely had so perfected his system that he arranged to

    give a demonstration of the aerial  craft to the United States War

    Department.  In attendance at the demonstration were  a  number of

    invited members of the press.

    Descriptions of the  craft  state  that it was a circular platform

    roughly 6 feet in diameter.  On this  platform was mounted a small

    stool set before a keyboard.

    The keyboard was attached to numerous tuned resonation  plates and

    vibratory mechanisms.

    Mr. Keely explained  that  these  plates  would cause the craft to

    rise and float above the ground  when  subjected  to  a  polarized

    field which would generate a "negative attraction".

    When the effect  was  produced,  the craft would  come  under  the

    influence of the "etheric polar current."

    The controlling  mechanism  consisted  of a row of 100 vibratory

    bars representing the enharmonic and diatonic scales.

    When half of  the  bars  were  damped  the craft would move at 500

    miles per hour.

    If all the bars were damped, gravity  would resume control and the

    craft would settle to the earth.

    There were no moving parts in the ship's propelling mechanism.

    It was unaffected by weather and could rise above any storm.

    The instrument for  guiding  the airship was distinctly  different

    from the propelling feature.

    By damping out  certain  specific  notes,  Keely  could  cause the

    airship to accelerate to any desired speed.

    The experiment was carried out in  an  open  field  with observers

    from the War Department and the news media.

    The ship was said to have accelerated from 0 to 500 miles per hour

    within a few seconds.

    Most astounding was  the  apparent  total  lack  of   acceleration

    effects to Mr.  Keely  as he sat on the stool before the keyboard,

    controlling the airship.

    Although, the government officials  were  impressed,  they  stated

    they could see no use for such a complex device  and  so  did  not

    pursue the matter further.

    (Remember, the Wright  brothers did not demonstrate their airplane

     at Kittyhawk, N.C., until December 17, 1903--7 years later!) 

This is a graphics enhanced picture of the Keely Aerial Propeller which has been referred to as the Airship, on examination of the picture, it becomes apparent it is not the complete airship.

                         for the common good.

       This document is  taken  from an ORIGINAL UNEDITED COPY of Aerial

       Navigation by Clara Bloomfield Moore.   We  believe  this chapter

       was excised for  reasons  unknown and by persons unknown  somtime

       during the early  1900's  in  an  apparent  attempt  to  suppress

       further elucidation of Keely's concepts.

       We of Vanguard Sciences feel it should  be  made  available to the

       interested public and  wish to publicly thank Mr.  Victor  Hansen

       for his sharing such a rare and up to now, highly guarded work.

            "All the  work  of  the  world,"  says  Drummond, "is merely

       taking advantage of energies already  there."  In  order  to take

       advantage of these  energies,  we  must not only  know  of  their

       existence, but know  the  laws  which  govern  their operation in

       nature; for so  only can we conquer  them  and  make  our  slaves

       instead of our masters.

            More than  twenty  years  ago,  Keely,  by  seeming  chance,

       discovered the unknown   polar   flow,  and  without  giving  any

       attention to research, on the  line  of  its  origin  or  of  its

       operation, began to  construct  engines to apply  the  energy  to

       mechanics.  It was not until he had invented his marvelous

       researching instruments that  his true work of evolution began in

       1888, which, completed  in  1893,  has  now  borne  the  test  of

       demonstration and given  him command of a vibratory  circuit  for

       running machinery, both   for  terrestrial  use  and  for  aerial


            Before this  could be brought  about  it  was  necessary  to

       effect a sympathetic affinity between his machinery and the polar

       flow, minus magnetism.  The  colossal nature of the  difficulties

       that he has surmounted can never be realized as by those who have

       followed him during  the last five years, and seen them spring up

       one after another, at every advance, to bar his way.

            Through this  system the dynamo  will  eventually  become  a

       thing of the past, and electric lighting will be  conducted  by a

       polar negative disc  run  by  a  vibratory circuit of sympathetic

       polar attraction, "drawn direct  from  space,"  which  Keely  has

       harnessed for commercial  use  after  more then twenty  years  of

       maligned and persistent effort such as the world has never known.

            Before attempting  to  set  down  any of the great truths of

       sympathetic physics, it  will be  necessary  for  the  scientific

       reader to have   some   idea  of  Keely's  views   of   "Nature's

       sympathetic flows." Although he has substantiated his theories by

       demonstration to his  own  satisfaction  and to the conviction of

       distinguished men of science, electricians  and  to engineers, he

       will welcome any refutation of them which shows  that  he  is  in

       error, for Keely does not claim to be infallible, as do those who

       sit in judgment upon him.

       To quote from his writings:

            "Physicists have been working in the wrong direction to lead

       them to associate    themselves    with    Nature's   sympathetic

       evolutions. It is  not necessary  to  advance  farther  into  the

       unexplored region of these sympathetic flows than  the ninths, to

       become convinced that  the  one I denominate the dominant, is the

       leader toward which   the  remaining   thirds   of   the   triune

       combination (of triple sympathetic streams) co-ordinate,  whether

       it be the  cerebellic,  gravital,  or magnetic. When we reach the

       luminiferous track on the ninths,  in  the triple subdivision, we

       have proof that the infinite stream, from that unexplored  region

       where all sympathetic   streams   emanate,   is   triune  in  its

       character, having the dominant  as  the  sympathetic  leader,  to

       which the remainder of the celestial thirds are subservient;  the

       cerebellic being the    ominant,  and  the  triplets,  (gravital,

       electric, and magnetic) following in its train.

            "The magnetic cannot lead the electric, nor the electric the

       gravital, nor the gravital the magnetic.  All  are subservient to

       the dominant, as a train of cars is subservient to the locomotive

       which pulls it along; the only difference between the two is that

       one is sympathetic, the other mechanical. Though  this is a crude

       illustration, it conveys a great truth in sympathetic philosophy.

       All sympathetic flows  have this triune condition associated with

       them, the same as the molecular,  atomic and etheric aggregations

       of all forms of visible matter: the compound etheric, or

       dominant, being the leader and yet one of the constituents of the

       molecule itself. The  dominant we may call the etheric portion of

       the molecule; the harmonic, the  atomic;  and the enharmonic, the

       molecule itself. The dominant part of the triune  combination  of

       the sympathetic streams  are  the  leaders,  toward which all co-

       ordinate to make up the sympathetic  envelope of the earth; ( the

       cerebral being the  high  dominant,  or  compound   etheric,  the

       luminiferous proper.)

            "All diversion  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.

            "The system  of  inducing differential harmonies by compound

       thirds is one that the world of  science  has  never  recognized;

       simply because the  struggles of physicists, combating  with  the

       solution of the  conditions governing the fourth order of matter,

       have been in a direction antagonistic  to the right one.  By this

       I mean that  physicists  reject  the  true  conditions   of   the

       dissociation of matter;   recognizing  and  holding  fast  to  an

       adverse law; debarring  the  subdivision   of   the   atom,   and

       ridiculing the existence of latent force in intermolecular space.

       I have substantiated the triple formation of the  molecule by the

       differential triple reply  that it gives when excited by compound

       concordant impulses, and by the accelerated range of motion which

       it assumes under intensified vibration, even to dissociation from

       its fellows; proving this dissociation by the increased amount of

       latent energy evolved, progressively."

            At an  early  period of Keely's  researches,  on  the  lines

       suggested by the distinguished professor of the Bonn  University,

       Dr. Beriz, Viz.,  of  the  conditions  governing the operation in

       nature of the unknown energy he was  dealing with, Keely wrote to

       a friend:

            "It appears, in my researching experiments, quite evident to

       me, that under  different  orders of progressive vibration,  when

       the sixth order  is reached on the positive, a condition presents

       itself in an accompanying agent  that  adds to the etheric flow a

       very peculiar action.  I  call this third agent  its  sympathetic


            "In the physical organism, the circulatory forces have their

       attendants in the   form  of  nerves,  which  are  the  sensatory

       telegraphs to all parts of the  human  system.  I  have reason to

       believe that under the seventh subdivision of matter  a condition

       is reached where  perfect  assimilation takes place between these

       two sympathetics, thus showing the luminiferous track. It is this

       assimilation or association  that  induces  the  luminosity, I am

       quite certain; but in this unition  there  is nothing approaching

       corpuscular friction, which   in   itself   is  antagonistic   to


            "Consequently the  unition  of these sympathetic thirds must

       take place by gravital assimilation,  which  is  the  highest  of

       sympathetic union. This is the compound etheric flow,  or soul of

       matter. The sympathetic   attendant   must   be  the  odylic;  or

       comparatively speaking, its nerve force.  Reichenbach exercises a

       wonderfully far-seeing judgment  in  his  argument  on  this, the

       highest preponderable.

            "If I am able, with the instrument I am now constructing, to

       demonstrate these assertions as truths, it will  amply  repay the

       researcher of a  lifetime.  The  conditions  governing the nerve-

       force of the planetary system may  then  be  unraveled  by future

       research. This seems  to be too immense an aim to  be  associated

       with human thought.

            "I hope  I  am  the  `compound  lunatic' that the scientific

       world calls me, to whom it is given to work out the demonstration

       of these `hidden things of God' which  hitherto have seemed to be

       past finding out.  They  may  call  me `Cagliostro',  `Impostor,'

       "Charlatan," or anything  that  pleases  them;  I  shall glory in

       these names, if I can reach the  solution  of  this  vast problem

       that I am  now  at work upon.  I thank God the time  is  near  at

       when I will be able to prove how faithfully accurate  is  the new

       philosophy in showing up the conditions governing the sympathetic


            By progressive research Keely has, since that time, attained

       such perfection in  his  method  of  work  that the vitalizing of

       instruments, which formerly   took   him   three   day,   is  now

       accomplished in fifteen  minutes,  using hydrogen  in  increasing

       molecular oscillation to   the  point  where  the  power  can  be

       registered. Up to a certain state  he  was  able  to  employ  the

       ether; but in this process it would be as impossible, as it is to

       take the flow  of  thought in one's hands and by physical  effort

       tie it in  a  knot.  Having,  in  these  researches, succeeded in

       wresting form Nature the conditions  of  planetary suspension, he

       is now well on his way toward gaining the closely  guarded secret

       of the firefly.  All  that  Nature  dose with Nature's forces man

       will be able to do when he has wrung  from her grasp, one by one,

       the keys that she still clenches in her hands; for  it  is Nature

       herself, not Science, which has given to the world, in this

       system of aerial  navigation,  "the  crowning  achievement  of  a

       century of progress."

             Keely has never made but one  experiment in dissociation the

       hydrogen of the chemist. After a persistent effort  of over seven

       weeks' duration, in  his  attempt to confine it and hold it under

       assimilation with one-third its  volume  of disintegrated air, he

       succeeded in obtaining a rather indefinite result,  lasting  only

       about ninety seconds.  The luminosity shown was the only evidence

       he had of its dissociation, but in  his process of disintegration

       of water, he   never  fails  to  obtain  proof  of   the   triple

       subdivision of hydrogen - molecular, atomic and inter-atomic.

            Each disc   of  the  polar  and  depolar  groupings  in  the

       propeller of the airship contains  seven  pints  of hydrogen.  In

       preparing these discs,  the  hydrogen is submitted  to  a  triple

       order of vibration.  The  corpuscular  envelopes of the molecules

       are not enlarged in volume, under  their receptive condition, but

       their velocity of   rotation  is  increased.  While   under   the

       operation of this  transmittive  vibration their vortex action is

       made visible.

            Under date of November 2, 1891,  Keely  wrote  of one of his

       researching instruments which he was then inventing,  to overcome

       nodal interference in   sympathetic   negative   outreach:  "This

       instrument combines the disintegrator  and the positive-negative-

       indicator in one. It will be but an intermediate,  as between the

       sympathetic negative transmitter and the depolarizer. At present,

       I am working  like  a  man  suspended  between  heaven and earth,

       trying to reach one without leaving the other."

            This is one of Keely's many  apt  figures  of  speech, which

       convey, as no other words could, what his position  has  been  in

       the past. The  wonderful  instrument  (the  sympathetic  harness)

       which he has now completed to connect  the  polar  flow  with the

       propeller of the airship, substantiates what only  two  years ago

       was purely theoretical in Keely's system of sympathetic vibratory

       physics; and figuratively  speaking,  proves that without leaving

       earth he has  laid  hold of the  very  battlements  of  celestial

       regions, thus opening a pathway for men of science  to  reach the

       solution of their  most  intricate  problems.   Often  has  Keely

       expressed his regret  that mechanical  physicists  have  not  had

       suitable instruments for their researches, saying that they would

       long since have  discovered  their  errors  had   they   been  in

       possession of proper  instruments  for  acoustic research. It was

       some photographs of his instruments  which  led  the  late  Henri

       Hertz, after examining them, to say in 1889:

            "No man   who   is  working  on  these  lines,   with   such

       instruments, is a  fraud. I cannot help him; no one can help him;

       he must work out his system alone,  and  when it is completed, we

       can pursue our researches on the same line. I thought  Keely  was

       working, as I  am, with an electrical machine and wires. I had no

       idea of these wonderful instruments.

            The machine  used  by  Keely,   from   1872   to  1882,  for

       disintegrating water, weighed several tons. Since that time, in

       his work of  evolution, he has made such advances that the one he

       new uses is no larger the wheel  of  a perambulator (old term for

       baby carriage).

            In Keely's process of disintegrating water,  the  proportion

       of oxygen to  hydrogen  is  such  as to favor the bringing about,

       under a certain  order  of  triple  vibration,  the  antagonistic

       differentiation necessary to   produce   molecular   and   atomic

       corpuscular dissociation. When this dissociation takes place, the

       hydrogen becomes highly rotating, acting like a molecular capsule

       with the oxygen   enclosed.   While  under  this  condition  when

       confined in a tube, they remain dissociated  until the peripheral

       rotation of the hydrogen is interfered with.

            One of  the foundation stones of vibratory physics  is  that

       "no differentiation can  exist in the workings of the pure law of

       harmony."  If this is correct, these  so-called  elements  have a

       triple basic, as vibratory physics teaches, for  the  system that

       represents harmony in  one  sense  must  represent  it in all, or

       everything would be brought in to "chaotic confusion." Therefore,

       as Keely surmised, long before he was able to prove it to his own

       satisfaction, hydrogen must, under the conditions of this law, be

       composed of three elements; and these three elements in turn must

       each have a  triple formation,  and  go  on  indefinitely,  until

       verged into the infinite inter-luminous.

            The correctness of these hypotheses has been  proved  by the

       varying degrees of  energy  evolved in progressive disintegration

       from the molecular to the introductory etheric.  Keely writes;

          "The nearer the approach to  the  neutral  centres,  when  the

       dissociation takes place,  the  greater  is  the   latent   force

       evolved.  In molecular  dissociation the instrument is set on the

       thirds, meeting with  a  rotating  resistance  of  five  thousand

       pounds per square inch, without any interference  with the inter-

       molecular position.  The  instrument  is  set on the sixths, with

       the inter-molecular position.   The  instrument  is  set  on  the

       sixths, to liberate  inter-molecular  latent force,  which,  when

       liberated, is equal  to  a resistance of ten thousand pounds.  To

       reach the atomic centres, the instrument  is  set  on  the ninths

       dominant, the sixths harmonic, and the thirds enharmonic,  having

       the transmittive chord  B  associated with each.  At this setting

       the corpuscular percussion exceeds  twenty-five  thousands pounds

       per square inch.  The subservience of the co-ordinate sympathy is

       shown in the  result  by  a  pressure exceeding fifteen  thousand

       pounds, reaching, in   this   subdivision,  almost  as  near  the

       neutrals as instruments can carry  us.   The  atomic  and  inter-

       atomic settings constitute the introductory conditions  governing

       the nodal outreach  as  toward the etheric.  Under this condition

       of sympathetic vibration an evolution of energy is registered for

       exceedingly any heretofore  liberated.    The   region   of   the

       inaudible is reached  - the introductory etheric  and  the  first

       features of the  invisible  latent  force existing in corpuscular

       embrace have been handled.

            "We must put our shoes from  off  our feet - i.e., lay aside

       our earthly bodies - before we can go further.  But this is far

       enough to prove  that  nothing  is  lost,  and  that,  when  this

       repellent order of  things  is   brought   about,  and  so-called

       elements are separated,  these  elements  yield   up,   in  their

       molecular separation, what  may  be  called  their souls, or more

       progressive elements.

            "We have gone far enough to find that there is no such thing

       as death; that matter cannot die,  any more than the substance or

       spiritual essence which controls it can die.  The word death is a

       misnomer, for there  is  only a change of base in  the  molecular

       visible, and it  is  the same with the sympathetic invisible, for

       celestial radiation claims her  can  back  again  to its realm of

       spiritual existence."

                   'My own dim life should teach me this,

                      That life shall live for evermore;

                      Else earth is darkness at the core,

                    And dust and ashes all that is.'

            "It is  through  the  action of nature's sympathetic  forces

       that planets are  born  and their volume of matter augmented.  If

       the sympathetic, negative polar  stream  were  cut  off  from the

       earth, its molecular  mass  would become independent,  and  would

       float away into  space  as  would  a soap bubble filled with warm

       air.  The same  conditions  of   governing   rule  exist  in  the

       planetary masses as between the mental and physical forces in our

       organism; the organism representing the earth, and  its link with

       the cerebral centres  the  connection with the infinite mind.  In

       other words, the latent energy existing  in the neutral depths of

       matter, visible or invisible, remains eternally  subservient  and

       unchangeably linked to   the   eternal  mind.   True  science  is

       bastardized by intimating  that   the   life  in  matter  can  be

       destroyed by any intensity of thermal negation (frigidity).   Can

       finite man make   use   of  an  infinite  element  to  neutralize

       infinity?  Thermal negation  causes   molecular   oscillation  to

       diminish, or even  seem to cease, but the results  brought  about

       from this superficial  appearance  of  matter  coming to rest are

       that the latent  energy  existing   in   the  molecular  zone  is

       transferred to the  inter-molecular, increasing the  oscillations

       of the inter-molecular  in  the  same ratio that the molecular is

       diminished.  All the art that man  can  employ to induce the same

       effect on the inter-molecular zone ends here.  Granting, however,

       that it were possible, what would ensue?

            "A disintegration, of the most intense explosive  character,

       of the volume experimented upon, destroying the apparatus and its

       surroundings.  But no   artifice  of  the  physicist  could  ever

       produce such conditions.   In  the  disintegration  of  water  by

       vibratory changes of   atmospheric  base  (a  triple   order   of

       sympathetic vibration, molecular,   inter-molecular,  and  atomic

       simultaneously projected) the  inter-molecular  depths  only  are

       interfered with, the   result   being  that  latent   energy   is

       liberated, showing a  pressure of 2,000 atmospheres (14.7 PSI = 1

       atmosphere at sea  level,  so   that   2000   *   14.7  =  29,400

       PSI...VANGUARD), when barometric conditions are favorable.

            "The physical organism (through the medium of celestial

       radiation) is a  trinity,  both in regard to its visible form and

       the invisible sympathetic  streams   which   govern  it,  in  its

       individual and combined  movements.   The  visible  includes  the

       molecular, the atomic  and inter-atomic in combination; while the

       invisible, or spiritual, includes  the etheric, inter-etheric and

       luminous in combination, each of which is essential to the proper

       completion of the combined action, comprising as  it  does  every

       minute law governing the celestial and terrestrial universe.

            "Life begets life; the celestial life begets the terrestrial

       life; the God-Life  begets  the Man-Life.  Celestial radiation is

       the pure soul of all matter, both  earthy  and  gaseous.  Thus we

       are linked in  all our environments to the divine,  our  cerebral

       aggregations being the    highest    medium   whereby   celestial

       sympathetic reflection associates  with our organisms, and is our

       only source of knowledge of ourselves.  We have,  with our mental

       and physical forces,  a  duality  of  action which, when combined

       with the celestial, makes up the  triplet  or  trinity.  With the

       mental, the superficial  visible,  or  outward  sight;  with  the

       inward, or spiritual   invisible,  we  have  the  spiritual  link

       connecting mind and matter, the order of transfer being:

            "First   -   Celestial radiation, or etheric.

            "Second  -   Mental impregnation, or inter-atomic.

            "Third   -   Physical movements, or inter-molecular.

            "Or again:

            "Ninths  -    Sympathetic   transfer   from   the  celestial


            "Sixths  -   Sympathetic impregnation of matter.

            "Thirds  -   Physical movements."

            Thus the  following question is answered,  asked  by  Oliver

       Lodge, (even though,  with  the professor's knowledge, the answer

       seems to be but "arrant gibberish" to him):

            "By what  means if force exerted,  and  what  definitely  is

       force?  Here is something not provided for in the orthodox scheme

       of physics.  Modern  physics  is  not complete,  and  a  line  of

       possible advance lies in this direction."

            Vibratory physics   has   here  reached  the  boundary  line

       dividing the infinite from the finite,  the link between mind and

       matter.  Here we must pause; but it has taught us that it is only

       in the supreme conditions of celestial reflection  or sympathetic

       transfer that we  live,  move,  and have our being; through which

       every thought, or  flow  of the  mental,  actuates  the  physical

       organism, on the same order that an illuminated  centre  radiates

       and lights up the surroundings.

            Mr. J.  Townshend,  in his paper "The Planet Venus," read at

       Leeds, in April, asks:

            "Are hydrogen,  nitrogen,  helium,  etc.,  really  elemental

       substances, or are  they  evolved from ether?   If  so,  what  is

       ether?  Whence the impulse which operates upon it, and what is

       its nature?  Thus  we turn from effect to cause in search of some

       first principle upon which the mind  can  rest.  But ere this the

       light of science has failed us, for who by (scientific) searching

       can find out God?"

            Sympathetic vibratory  or  spiritual physics  answers  these

       questions, and, as  has  been  said,  promises  to burst upon the

       searchers after truth as the one  mighty  and complete revelation

       of some of the mysteries of creation.

               "Science was faith once;  faith were science now

                Would she but lay her bow and arrow by

                And arm her with the weapons of her time."

            "And God  breathed  into men the breath of life,"  celestial

       radiation, "and man became a living soul."

            The cause  of the effect, the source or fountain-head of all

       matter, is the  celestial Mind  -  Deity,  from  whom  all  power

       emanates, and whose  Laws of Sympathetic Association  reign  over

       and control all  matter  and all substance.  Spirit is substance,

       as Spinoza taught:   "The  universe   is   one.    There   is  no

       supernatural; all is related, cause and sequence."

            "Like fire, which is a spiritual order of vibration,  spirit

       is latent in  all  matter.   One  might  as well try to operate a

       steam-engine without its boiler  as  to  give  motion  to  matter

       against the conditions  imposed by nature, or to  propose  a  new

       method of controlling the action of our physical organisms (other

       than through the sympathetic transfer of our mental forces) as an

       improvement on the one instituted by the Almighty.

            "Although there  is  as  such  difference  in  the molecular

       construction of spirit and matter  as  there  is between hydrogen

       and forged steel, yet the flow of spiritual radiation,  from  the

       fountain-head of force, operates under the one unvarying law with

       both; for "nature never changes her processes," and she cannot be

       forced into any position which is antagonistic to her sympathetic

       law of action;  such,  for instance, as it would be were a gas to

       be solidified.  The disintegration of water by heat is only a low

       order of crude molecular dissociation,  visible in its production

       of steam; but the dissociation of hydrogen and oxygen  cannot  be

       made visible.  Physicists are misled by visible effects.  Nature,

       by her process of sympathetic vibration (an order approaching the

       luminiferous) could take  up  the  atmosphere  that encircles our

       globe, and yet solid matter would  not even then be produced.  By

       another order of  progressive  sympathetic vibration,  associated

       with the high luminous, the molecular condition of the atmosphere

       so taken up would not represent a cherry-stone in volume."

            Nothing exists  but  substance and its modes of motion, says

       Spinoza; thus teaching that spirit  is  substance.   "Soul is the

       body or organ  of  the  mind,  and  as such they are  inseparable

       forever.  Mind and soul are one, soul and body are two.  Soul can

       never be without  mind,  body  can.  As in the mortal life, so in

       the immortal life,  mind  cannot   be  or  act  without  a  body.

       Sympathetic physics teaches that the luminiferous ether, a

       compound inter-etheric element,  celestial  mind  force,  is  the

       substance of which everything is  visible  is  composed, and that

       this great sympathetic protoplastic element is life itself.

            "Consequently, our physical organisms are composed  of  this

       element; the focalizing  or  controlling  media  to  the physical

       having its seat   in  the  cerebral   convolutions   from   which

       sympathetic radiation emanates.   This  sympathetic  outreach  is

       mind-flow proper, or   will-force;  sympathetic  polarization  to

       produce action, sympathetic  depolarization   to  neutralize  it.

       Polar and depolar  differentiation  resulting  in  motion.   This

       element sympathetically permeates  all  forms  and  conditions of

       matter, having for  its  attendants   gravity,  electricity,  and

       magnetism, the triple  conditions  borne  in itself.   From  this

       'soul of matter'  all  forms of motion receive their introductory

       impulses.  The physicists  of   the   present   age   ignore  the

       sympathetic conditions that  are  associated with  the  governing

       force of the  cerebral  and the muscular organism.  The evolution

       of a volition, the infinite exciter, arouses the latent energy of

       the physical organism  to do its  work;  differential  orders  of

       brain-force acting against each other under dual  conditions.  If

       there were no  latent  energy,  to  arouse sympathetically, there

       would be no action in the physical  frame,  as all force is will-


            Though alternate active energy could be evolved  in  a cubic

       inch of steel,  by the proper sympathetic exciter, to do the work

       of a horse, by its sympathetic association  with  the polar force

       in alternate polarization and depolarization.  This  is the power

       that I am  now  getting  under control to do commercial work.  In

       other words, I  am making a sympathetic  harness  for  the  polar

       terrestrial force."    KEELY, 1892.

            In 1893, Keely, in reply to the question, "What do

       you include in   the   polar   force?"   answered,    "Magnetism,

       electricity, and gravital sympathy; each stream of force composed

       of three currents  which  make up the governing conditions of the

       controlling medium of the universe.   The  ninths  which I am now

       endeavoring to graduate  to a sympathetic mechanical  combination

       will, if I  succeed,  close my researches in sympathetic physics,

       and complete my system."  Within  the  year  the announcement was

       made that Keely  had  completed  this  graduation,   with  entire

       mechanical success, "hooking his machinery on to the machinery of

       nature."  In thus  having  realized  the ambition of his life, he

       takes no credit to himself, saying  that  physicists  would  long

       since have discovered all that he has discovered if they had been

       in possession of the proper researching instruments, and that the

       theories they have  advanced  show that they are  misled  by  the

       imperfections of their  instruments.   He  has  always maintained

       that "it is  only  when science  holds  the  rein  of  the  polar

       negative harness that commercial success will follow, and not one

       hour before."  But  science, to whom the reins  were  offered  in

       1884, refused to  take  them, fortunately, for mechanical physics

       could have rendered  Keely  no   assistance   in  unraveling  the

       mysteries of sympathetic physics.

            Buckle, in his address, "The Influence of Woman on the

       Progress of Knowledge,"   discloses   the   foundation  stone  of

       sympathetic physics in these words;  "The  laws  of  nature  have

       their sole seat,  origin, and function, in the human  mind.   Not

       one single discovery  has ever been made which has been connected

       with the laws of the mind that made it.  Until this connection is

       ascertained, our knowledge has no sure basis."

           As Dr. Gerard surmises, in his book on "Nervous Force," Keely

       is "a plagiarist in cerebral dynamics."   The  instrument that he

       calls the sympathetic transmitter is the brain of  the propeller,

       and at last  we  have  a  discovery  which gives a sure basis for

       knowledge; a discovery  made  by   one  who  lays  no  claims  to

       learning, for nature has taught him, in her works,  all  that  he


                          The Propeller Described

            The space  which  the  propeller  of the airship occupies in

       Keely's laboratory comes within  a  radius of six feet square.  A

       small space for  so  powerful  a medium - distributing  over  one

       thousand horsepower, as  tested  by  experiment.   It consists of

       more than two thousand pieces, the principal parts of which are:

          1)  Positive  graduating  Chladna;  guiding  by  polar  action

       toward the North and reversing by depolar action.

          2)  Sympathetic polar negative transmitter; for  operating and

       controlling the action  of  the  machinery in producing polar and

       depolar power: liberating the latent sympathetic power in twenty-

       seven sensitized discs.

          3)  Polar and depolar intermittent accumulator; carrying eight

       focalizing discs for receiving and  distributing  the sympathetic

       polar negative flow.     This    device    takes    the    energy

       sympathetically from the  polar negative stream on the same order

       that a dynamo  registers  electricity   from   the  earth  to  be

       distributed and redistributed;      running      the      machine


          4)  Positive  ring  suspended  on  a  small  shaft  with three

       points, the object of which is to  preserve  the integrity of the

       neutral centre of the machine.

          5)  Two  resonating  drums; one positive, one negative,  which

       multiple the intensity of the sympathetic flow.

          6)  Twenty-seven   depolar  triple  groupings,  nine  in  each

       grouping, consisting of three vitalized  discs  with  resonators.

       These reply sympathetically to polar and depolar action.

          7)  Large  polar  ring.   This  ring  is associated  with  the

       central resonators by nine resonating polar discs placed at equal

       distances.  This is the medium for distributing the polar flow.

          8)  Small   negative  ring,  which  is  the  governor  of  the

       propeller, associated with a polar  bar  that oscillates from the

       polar field to the depolar field, somewhat on the order of a

       magnetic needle, governing the action of the machine to any given

       number of revolutions.   The  sympathetic rotation that exists in

       the resonating centre of this ring  holds  the  neutral centre in

       subservience to celestial radiation, whereby a certain  order  of

       sympathetic disturbances gives   the  sympathetic  radiation  the

       requisite power to  draw  it to  itself,  accomplishing  what  is

       called atmospheric suspension on the same principle  as  that  of

       sympathetic suspension.

            The condition  of  the  mechanical requirements necessary to

       conduct successfully the line of  research  which  Keely has been

       pursuing will be properly appreciated, now that  he  is  able  to

       demonstrate the simplicity   and  beauty  of  his  system,  under

       perfect control for commercial use.


     We of Vanguard Sciences hope you have found this document of interest.

     The concepts described might appear strange due to the nature of the

     words used.  Keely was forced to create his own definitions for many

     of the words he used to describe the phenomena he was producing.

     Most of his terms  have their origins in music.  Other documents

     which might assist in the understanding of Keely's work can be found

     under the category of KeelyNotes on the KeelyNet BBS.

     As the KeelyNet continues to grow, we will also continue to add

     various documents which flesh out not just Keely, but the many other

     subjects which we find of interest.  If you have something you might
