“Positive” and “negative” are the two terms used to distinguish one extreme of polarity from the other extreme. Concentration is positive, decentration is negative. The male is positive, the female is negative.
Polarity is like one complete balancing function for physical creation, to manifest the idea of creation in God's desire.
“There are two points of rest in every cycle. At each of these two rest points each opposite condition reverses and becomes the other. DAY is a contraction of light-waves into visibility. NIGHT is a reversal of the cycle. Lightwaves expand and become invisible.” - Walter Russell
“The name of that great divider of rest into two-way electric motion is Polarity. Polarity is the controller - the measurer - and the surveyor of electric intensity of desire in Mind for the actions-reactions needed for creative expression.” - Walter Russell
“Again I say: I, the Light, am One. But my thinking is two, for thought is two in every repeating thing, two halves of One which never can be one. Always must they be two to go opposed ways from Me and back again to Me for reborning from the other one after finding rest in Me.” - universal One (via Walter Russell)
“Polarity is the law of opposites in their finer attraction from center to center. Unity is the merging of these currents into one Essence. Creation brings forth opposites by its centrifugal force, like a fountain spray of manifestation flowing out to the limits of the cosmos and of each pattern unit. The surface limits the central activity. It protects the sensitive center of action and intensifies it in its own sphere or limits by means of concentration.” - Randolph Stone
“(..) imagine God's hands pulling the invisible ONE IDEA of Father-Motherhood apart to divide it into two visible forms, each of which are one half of the ONE IDEA. Instead of the invisible, formless and changeless One Idea, God has thus created PAIRS OF OPPOSITELY CONDITIONED HALVES OF MANY IDEAS. That is what is called POLARITY, which means the division of one condition into two equal opposites.” - Walter Russell
As polarity is the most general concept of balanced-opposition (to simulate the two-way-motion of the one-whole-idea), it can be hard to grasp fully.
Here are some polarity analogies that we can relate to:
|male +||female||= result (the one idea manifested)|
|male lego-block-side||female lego-block-side|| lego building block
|clay||mould|| form reproduction
|higher-pressure chamber||lower-pressure chamber|| when these two chambers are connected, there is the potential for motion
|projected ('positive') light source||transparent, reversed subtractive-color and brightness ('negative') photo|| photo reproduction
|generative (North) cell area||radiative (South) cell area|| cell polarity is the control mechanism for cell division (and also various other fundamental cell functions)
|sperm cell||egg cell|| animal zygote cell (the first form of a new animal organism)
|masculine qualities||feminine qualities|| balanced social relations and civilization
“God's sole 'occupation' is the building of moving body forms to simulate His One Idea of CAUSE and EFFECT which Creation is. All CAUSE lies within the unconditioned, balanced, magnetic Light of Mind-knowing. All EFFECT lies within the two unbalanced, polarized lights of electric thinking, which create the two unbalanced-and-opposed conditions which Creation is. Electric thinking divides all effect into opposite pairs equally. Each one of each pair of effects is equal. Their balance is absolute.” - Walter Russell
“Interchange between oppositely-conditioned pairs of thought-recording units is expressed in waves of motion. This is a thought-wave universe. Thought-waves are reproduced throughout the universe at the speed of 186,000 miles per second.” - Walter Russell
“Sex is the motive power behind force and motion. Sex is the apparent division of the father-mother substance of Mind into apparent opposites. This division is due to the opposite desires of electricity and magnetism, expressed in the action and reaction of the thinking process.” - Walter Russell
“Sexes do not unite. Reproduction of dynamic sexed pairs does not come through the union of dynamic sexed pairs, but from the voidance of sex condition, and with it, the power of dynamic sex expression reproduction. Reproduction is not the unity of two opposite halves of one patterned thing; it is the voiding of the power of dynamic expression which all unbalanced opposites express. Reproduction is the cessation of those two unbalanced conditions which restores a balance from which similarly patterned negative forms reverse their expressions and become positive forms.” - Walter Russell
“It is time that the medical profession fully comprehended that vitality and the powers of generation are based upon increasing polarity, and that polarity responds immediately to desire and the balanced rhythms which are an essential precedent to the joyousness which leads to ecstasy. Such joyous emotions increase the alkaline preponderance which builds the body and lowers its acid content.” - Walter and Lao Russell
(…) ecstasy is the continued, normal, unchanging state of God's Mind, and the more you can reflect that ecstasy the more you can keep the polarity of your body at its maximum generative power.“ - Walter and Lao Russell
“When we are ill and have pains, we think that it is the body which hurts and is sick, when in reality it is the life-breaths or Prana Currents in the body (which operate it and sustain it) which are out of balance and coordination in their polarity function of attraction and repulsion. This negative and positive action throughout the system is the factor which makes each cell contract and expand in its processes of life: to take in nourishment - of solids, liquids, gases, and warmth, or energy - use it and discard the waste products and gases, and radiate the heat (or caloric) energy for use and distribution.
This seems a new idea or concept, because we approach and explain it from the modern base of energy radiation, conduction and absorption, like electronic engineers would in their atomic research. This energy approach is prior to chemistry and mechanics. Energy in its threefold action of positive (+), negative (-), and neuter [neutral] (0) polarity is prior to chemistry, which deals with particles of matter and their chemical affinity - or antipathy - which can result in new combinations or in an explosion of gases.
We are still overly fascinated with the mechanical, chemical, and bacteriological aspects of matter in all our research in the healing arts, because we have lost the art of the direct approach through the life energy itself. All our scientific research is external to us - it is directed only by intellect, highly technical, and foreign to the oneness of the life process and its finer essences, by which we live and breathe and have our being. That is why we lack life in its full expression.” - Randolph Stone
“Your polarity - your vitality - your joyous attitude of Mind which multiplies the life principle in you keeps your body charged with proper balanced vibrations. These completely immunize your body from the chemistry of the death processes which await your violation of life's processes. The moment you do violate the life processes you invite the death processes to take over in the measure of your violation. A big violation, such as drinking poison, will invite all of the death processes to take over. Small violations invite only a fraction of the death processes to take over. Your lungs, your heart, your liver or some other organ, or even a small part of that organ, begins to die.” - Lao Russell
“The human body is bipolar like the cell. This applies to the anatomy and the physiological function as well. (…) The human body is a magnified cell, the expansion of the brain pattern of the airy neutral, all-present Life Energy Principle, which has its base in the cerebrospinal fluid - in the brain and in the spinal cord and throughout the entire nervous system. The middle of the human body is the neutral pole - from the top of the head down through the spinal cord and its three coverings. The cerebrospinal fluid flows between the pia mater and the arachnoid sheets, and follows the nerves all through the body. The right side of the body and the right side of the head is the positive pole. It gives off positive energy currents. The left side of the body and of the brain is the negative pole, and radiates negative energy currents.” - Randolph Stone
“The flow of the “prana” currents in the body is the same as the energy of the sun acting in Nature as a whole and is needed by every cell for its function and life in the human body. This “prana” function is the real physiology, because it supports all sensory and motor functions in the body. “Prana” is the river of life, as the vital current of the body, in its five-fold action. It is the distributor of the Life Force throughout the body. The “tattwas” (elements of earth, water, fire or warmth, air and ether) are the fields and structural tissues of anatomy. They support the “life winds” of “prana” that flow through the house we live in and call our body, the temple of Being on this earth.” - Randolph Stone
