divided light

“When the Tao is divided, there is a need for names, for, like the block which is carved, its parts then are seen.” - Lao Tzu

“As a lump of salt thrown in water dissolves, and can't be taken out again as salt, though wherever we taste the water it is salt, so this great endless deathless Being dissolved is knowledge. He reveals Himself with the elements, disappears when they disappear; leaving no name behind.” - Upanishads

“Fundamentally wrong in its basic premises, and wasteful in its practice, man's modern concept of the universe must be torn down and built again on truth as plainly told in light.” - Walter Russell

“While learning the HOW, we have never learned the WHY or WHAT. That is why science today has so little knowledge of CAUSE. It produces effects but cannot tell the WHY of those effects.” - Walter Russell

“(…) science sorely needs the imagination of an artist or poet to synthesize her heterogeneous complexities, and put her on the path of simplicity and truth; for nature is very simple in her causes. She is complex only in her repeative effects. I have not said that Newton's laws were wrong, for they are right as far as they go. They are only half truths, though. Kepler's first law is not only a half truth, but the half that is stated is inaccurately stated. Science should be exact, not approximate or inferential. Just as Newton left out all consideration of the equal and opposite reaction to the attraction of gravitation, which is the repulsion of radiation, so does Kepler leave the other focus of his ellipses out of his consideration. (…) Scientists ignore Nature when they choose, or when mathematical formula work out in accordance with preconceived premises.” - Walter Russell

As man unfolds from sensed man to spiritual man he gradually becomes aware of the two-way motion of all effect; that two ways being the visible effect which responds to his senses and the invisible effect which he knows but does not sense.” - Walter Russell

“We can scarcely avoid the inference that light consists in the transverse undulations of the same medium which is the cause of electric and magnetic phenomena.” - James Clerk Maxwell

“Science is incompetent to reason upon the creation of matter itself out of nothing. We have reached the utmost limit of our thinking faculties, when we have admitted that because matter cannot be eternal and self-existent, it must have been created.” - James Clerk Maxwell

“As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clearheaded science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research about the atoms this much: There is no matter as such ! All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. (…) We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Spirit. This Spirit is the matrix of all matter.” - Max Planck

essential concepts


undivided still light
magnify image
the one, undivided, still, white Light

The senses can't sense true stillness (only motion), so the true Light is registered as the blackness of outer space.

When our senses do register “light”, it is due to the compression and resistance of the projected wave motions, which are (seemingly) unbalancing the still Light.

What we call “light” is a sensed effect of motion, but the true, undivided, still Light can not be sensed - only known.

Light cannot be seen; it can only be known. Light is still. The sense of sight cannot respond to stillness. That which the eyes “feel” and believe to be Light is but wave motion simulating the idea of Light. Like all things else in this electric wave universe the idea of Light cannot be produced. Electric waves simulate idea only. They do not become idea.” - Walter Russell

There is but One substance. The One substance cannot be divided into many substances, or many parts. Individuality is but an appearance, an effect of potential in the periodicity of thinking. These little rotating particles of light associate themselves into inter-revolving or gyrating systems which continue the motion given to them by the energy of thinking. These systems are the records of all idea expressed in thinking. They are the living storehouses of the energy of thinking. The energy expended by Mind in the process of thinking idea is not lost or dissipated by thinking. If thinking did not register itself in light and light did not integrate into the forms of idea, the created universe would not be.” - Walter Russell

division of the one

division of the one stillness (represented by the dotted line - this division is a plane in physical reality), into the seeming two visible units of matter (the yellow dots).

The blue square surrounding the still center, represents the maximum dimensions of the male-female polarity extensions. In reality the blue square will be cube-shaped when polarity is well balanced, otherwise this invisible, metaphysical, bounding-space form will not be cubical.

“(…) the knowledge, energy and method of production are in the Mind of the creator of that product and not in the product. (…) To thus claim that energy is a property of matter is to deprive The Creator of His omnipotence and omniscience. The entire universe manifests power, but the universe is not the power which it manifests.” - Walter Russell


equator of man and earth2

equator of earth and man
- Walter Russell

The + and - indicate the congruent quality of male-female polarity. The male side is dominantly concentrative, the female side is dominantly decentrative. Both sides of these units of matter are composed of both sexes, but their dominance is different. Each unit of matter as a whole also has a dominant sex - like a man or a woman.

Laterality: The majority of humans are right-handed. Many are also right-sided in general (that is, they prefer to use their right eye, right foot and right ear if forced to make a choice between the two). (…) the right side is generally stronger; (…) the left hemisphere is the language hemisphere. (…) no significant left-handed culture has ever been found in the world.” - wikipedia

The vast significance of the equators of all creating things lies in the fact that the equators are the dividing planes of the universal equilibrium. They, therefore, represent the undivided, the unchanging spiritual Light from which the physical bodies of all things are extended. The zero which is the center of gravity of all bodies centers the equators of all material bodies. The Light of your Consciousness is on that portion of the equator of you which centers the two thought extensions of your brain. The real, immortal YOU - the invisible YOU - controls the visible body of YOU from the equator of your body. Everything you are in thought extends two ways from your Consciousness which is located upon your equator. Your senses vibrate from that equator when your equator is out of balance with the universal equilibrium, and cease to vibrate when it is in balance with it.” - Walter Russell

God has but one law, His law of BALANCE. His universe is balanced. It is at rest as an equilibrium. To disturb that equilibrium is impossible, but one can appear to disturb it by dividing it into pairs of oppositely unbalanced conditions which constantly interchange to keep in balance with each other.” - Walter Russell

“Life and death are born in the same cradle, but the cradle is a cycle, like the swinging of a pendulum, with an equator between the two from which life extends one way and death the other way.” - Walter Russell

Illustration of the trinity of polarity and how polarity can increase vitality (life), decrease vitality (death) and rebirth life from death.

(illustration by Walter Russell with some additions)

Out of My Light of knowing are My two lights of thinking born as sexed pairs of opposites for repetition as sexed pairs of opposites.” - universal One (via 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)
key key-hole lock
male lego-block-side female lego-block-side lego building block
higher-pressure chamber lower-pressure chamber when these two chambers are connected, there is the potential for motion and eventually an inter-balance

“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

balanced opposites

This is a two-way universe of opposed effects of motion - not a one-way universe.” - Walter Russell

“Let us never lose track of the fact that all of the pairs of opposites in all of this universe of effect are just other words for, or the mechanics of, CONCENTRATION and DECENTRATION. In other words CONCENTRATION and DECENTRATION are the root words for all pairs of opposites, whether HEAT and COLD, GRAVITATION and RADIATION, or any other pair.” - Walter and Lao Russell

Lets take a look at the types of balanced opposites of motion we see all around us. These are physical types of polarities, such as: charge, pressure, temperature, crystallization, color, rotation and revolution.

Understanding the various balanced-opposites will lay a foundation for understanding how the physical universe is being created from the undivided light through inter-balancing, gyroscopic systems of motion.

These pairs of balanced-opposites, are manifesting as different 'dimensions' (qualities) of motion, extending from the one stillness. So in reality they are all motion plays of the divided light balancing through the still equators.

“We do not yet know that the invisible part of the cycles of all idea is as continuous as the wheel is continuous. The cycle of the apple is light reaching from the sun and earth to that positive half of the apple cycle which we hold in our hand. The negative half of the cycle is light returning to sun and earth for repetition as another manifestation of the eternal idea of the apple. The same is true of the flame, the tree or any other part of the One Whole Idea of Creation. The flame “goes out” to our sensing. But it still IS. Likewise the tree, the forest, mountain, planet and nebula of the far heavens appear, disappear and as surely reappear.” - Walter Russell

Appearances and disappearances are but moving points in the cycle of Mind.” - Walter Russell

“Behold in Me the fulcrum of My changing universe which but manifests change, though I change not, nor move. For I am Rest. In Me alone is Balance.” - universal One (via Walter Russell)

“A man seeing a Technicolor motion picture for the first time and without knowledge of such electric effects would think he were looking through a window at real happenings, unaware that it was but an illusion “created” by projecting positive light through patterened negatives. That is all that creation is: two lights projected through each other to simulate motion, form and change.” - Walter Russell

electricity and magnetism

The two-way balance between dominant-induction (male) and dominant-conduction (female) - Walter Russell

Electricity is the tool which God uses to create all forms of His imagining. All forms are electric waves of matter.” - Walter Russell

“(…) electricity is the inhalation, or inbreathing generative action while magnetism is the exhalation, or outbreathing radiative reaction.” - Walter Russell

The greater the positive charge, the greater the pressure of contraction. The greater the pressure of contraction, the less the volume. The greater the negative discharge, the greater the pressure of expansion. The greater the pressure of expansion, the less the volume.” - Walter Russell

“This universe of moving body forms is an expression of the desire for division of the formless, sexless, father-mother balanced unity into pairs of equally-oppositely-unbalanced, disunited, sex-conditioned father and mother moving body forms. (…) The only energy in the universe is the pulsing desire of Mind for the creative expression of Mind-knowing by giving thought-imaged body forms to the idea of Mind-knowing. The only means of expressing the pulsing desire of Mind-idea is through the concentrative-decentrative pulsations of Mind-thinking. Mind-thinking is electric. The desire pulsations of electric thinking are concentrative and decentrative.” - Walter Russell

This wave universe is divided into wave fields. Each wave field is an electric battery which is forever being charged by the centripetal polarizing power of gravitation and discharged by the centrifugal depolarizing power of radiation. This process is a manifestation of the life-death, growth-decay principle which is ever present in every effect of motion in Nature, without exception. Together they constitute the electric action-reaction sequences without which there would be no universe. It is not true to Nature, therefore, to say that either heat, cold, compression, expansion, or any other expression of motion is energy. If the power to cause motion is in the balanced state of rest, it necessarily follows that energy is in the stillness of rest and not in motion which is effect of cause. The Mind of the Creator is the fulcrum from which the wave lever of Mind-thinking extends to express the energy of creative Mind. Thought-waves cannot, therefore, be the energy which caused them to become thought-waves. Any lever is powerless without a fulcrum. The power to move lies in the fulcrum which never moves. All motion starts from a point of rest, seeks a point of rest and returns in the reverse direction to its starting point of rest. Test this fact by throwing a ball in the air, breathing in and out, pulling a chain, or walking. Electrical effects of motion are not energy. Matter-in-motion is a marionette on the end of two Mind-controlled electric strings.“ - Walter Russell

Light does not travel. It reproduces itself.” - Walter Russell

This (semi) illustrates a straight-on view along the pole axis towards the still plane of a undulating, spherical pressure wave producing system. The producer of this effect could be an audio speaker, a drum membrane or a ball on the surface of water that is being pushed up-and-down.
speaker 2d sideview
This (semi) illustrates a top or bottom view of both the polarity extensions of the previous illustration. The pulsing, generative poles run vertically through the still plane in the center.

In reality the still plane also produces a central-axis-rotating motion, not just an up-and-down undulation.

A thought experiment: try to imagine this same illustration combined with a oppositely pulsing wave field, which cancels all motion out. This is the stillness which always is.
spherical wave
Rotating, spherical pressure waves are projected from a plane of stillness, towards a controlled point of lower-pressure (higher-potential, North), and will be compressed in the process, because the width of the pressure waves are decreased towards the North point.

The sine-wave illustrates the back-and-forth pulsation in time (along one axis) of the generative force. Each sphere is created by one whole sine-wave period.

The entire dynamic wave universe of electric matter is not what it seems to be. Everything which seems at rest depends upon violent motion to make believe it is at rest. A wire sheet could appear to be a steel disk if spun fast enough. The faster it is spun, the more at rest it would seem. (…) Not one thing could manifest the rest it simulates, if it were not for the incredible speeds of those atoms which so incessantly rotate and revolve to make that seeming restfulness possible. All seeming still matter is manifesting make-believe rest by make-believe motion. Motion itself is an illusion. The motion one senses in one's brain has no more reality than the motion which one senses in a motion picture. The seeming motion of the cinema is caused by sequences of changing patterned forms projected on the screen which give the impression of motion because of the rapid change of pattern in the negatives. That self-same illusion applies to the material universe.” - Walter Russell

“Matter is motion. The anti-matter, which now engages the serious attention of science, is stillness.” - Walter Russell

water waves
“Every wave is a compression-expansion pump. The whole universe is a giant pump. The two-way piston of the universal pump constitutes the universal heartbeat.” - Walter Russell

Stillness never can be motion, or become motion, but it can appear to be. Motion merely seems, but stillness always is. The universal equilibrium can never be other than its own balance but it can seem to be. The illusion which is motion springs from stillness and returns to stillness. This is a universe of rest. There is naught but rest in the universe. Mind knows its One Idea of Creation as One Whole. Mind thinks its One Whole idea into seeming parts. Hence the illusion of motion which we call Creation, and the illusion of substance which we call matter.” - Walter Russell

wave pistons
example of rhythmic balanced interchange

“Wave pistons of light, or of the ocean, operate radially and spirally inward and outward, toward and away from gravity.” - Walter Russell

matter and space

hsc 8-003

the balanced, cubical oneness of space and matter
- Walter Russell

What we call “matter” is light concentrated (contracted, focused). Matter is relatively hot due to the intense pressures.

“CONCENTRATION is an effect of gathering a very large volume of rarified matter like gases, or light rays which you cannot see into a small volume which compresses it into solid matter or focal point of light which you can see.” - Walter Russell

What we call “space” is light decentrated (expanded, radiated). Space is relatively cold, but not without seeming light motion. Therefore “space” is the negative half of the physical universe, while “matter” is the positive half. The pressures of motion between space and matter balance each other out continuously.

Space is as much matter as planets are but of an opposite form, potential and purpose.” - Walter Russell

Mass is held together by the pressures of its potential position. A dense mass will break up into its units when placed in a low pressure environment. This process is called ionization [decrystallization].” - Walter Russell

“Nature's method of storing energy in mass” - Walter Russell

note: the interpenetrating focal points of the two generative poles.

The purpose of motion is to contract concept into form and then to expand it into the memory of form. All concepts are but recollections of eternal ideas” - Walter Russell

Particles of matter form wherever desire of Mind to express form takes place - and that is everywhere.” - Walter Russell

“(…) all bodies are thought-bodies expressed in reversed pairs, one half being concentrated, (or compressed) into visible forms, the other half being decentrated, or expanded, into invisible forms. Bear in Mind also that thought-bodies interchange with each other, each becoming the other alternately, as the pendulum swings to interchange its visible and invisible counterparts alternately.” - Walter Russell

Matter does not live, whether it be patterned in the shape of a human being, a sun or a tree. Matter is composed of electric waves which record God’s thinking, but God never creates LIFE, for He alone is LIFE. His creations manifest Him but they are not Him, just as man’s creations are not man.” - Walter Russell

“Electric matter is but a mirror which reflects qualities outside itself to simulate those qualities within itself.” - Walter Russell

“In Nature the black negatives of space entirely surround the white positives. If you look at the stars you will see the black negatives of space through which white light is being projected RADIALLY inward toward a center of gravity, to reproduce white star bodies at their centers.” - Walter Russell

“The greatest error of science is in relation to space. Science thinks of space either as a void or as an ether through which solids of matter travel. The fact is that space travels with its solids, for each solid is surrounded by a minus zero equal-and-opposite vacuity of the plus zero which we call matter. Matter floats in these insulating spatial [gaseous] counterparts. Positive electricity is accountable for the solids and negative electricity is accountable for the space. All matter comes out of space by the action of positive [charging] electricity and is returned to space by the action of negative [discharging] electricity. White-hot suns come from the blackness of cold space and cold space radiates from hot suns. The matter of space consists of holes surrounded by corpuscular solids, while the matter of solids consists of small dense cores surrounded by vast tenuous holes of space.“ - Walter Russell

The very purpose of the hot suns is to act as crucibles for melting [ decrystallizing ] the raw materials which the Creator needs for expressing the idea of the universe. Contrarily, the very purpose of space is to cool the melted matter set out in order that it may become conditioned for the complex expressions [ crystallization ] of Creation. The two-way interchange between spatial holes and material solids is continuous.” - Walter Russell

sphere and cube

“There are thousands of novas in the heavens and space is filled with countless millions of fragments of exploded planets, which we call asteroids and meteorites. These are irregular shaped lumps. Nature does not create her forms in lumps. She creates only rings and spheres which she crystallizes into geometric forms, but they must first be rings and spheres.” - Walter Russell

The cube and the sphere are the sole working tools of creation.” - Walter Russell

“When man queries thee in this wise: Sayest thou that in this iron there is gold and all things else? Thou mayest answer: Within the sphere, and encompassing it, is the cube, and every other form that is: and within the cube, and encompassing it, is the sphere, and every other form that is.” - universal One (via Walter Russell)

“North is inward toward gravity. South is outward toward space.” - Walter Russell

North is the [inward] direction of charging. South the [outward] direction of discharging.” - Walter Russell

“These are the only two directions of change in this electrically divided universe. They are the electric directions of inward toward NORTH and the outward direction toward SOUTH. (…) The point of North in matter is its center of gravity. It is the focal center of concentrated thinking. It is the point of maximum compression, maximum heat and incandescence, and the highest potential of the mass. South is every radial direction away from North. South reaches out into space around every planet and sun. South is the radial direction of decentrated thinking. The farther away South reaches from North the colder it becomes, the lower its potential, the less dense the mass until density disappears in gases and vapors of cold, dark space.” - Walter Russell

gravity and radiation

What we call gravity is not some separate force of nature, but the effect of the concentrative action of electricity toward the inward center of North.

It is the office of gravity to compress - and it is the office of compression to heat - and it is the office of heat to throw of its hot bodies [as radiation] so they may cool and return as contracting bodies to again heat.” - Walter Russell

“Concentrative thinking is centripetal. It focuses to a point. It borns gravity. It 'charges' by multiplying low potential into high and cold into heat. (…) The journey toward gravity simulates life and the opposite journey simulates death in the forever repeating cycles which, together in their continuity, simulate eternal life. ” - Walter Russell

Every wave is a compression-expansion pump. The whole universe is a giant pump. The two-way piston of the universal pump constitutes the universal heartbeat. A one-way universe is as impossible as a one-way pump is impossible. The compressed condition of this universe is exactly equal to the expanded condition. The compressed condition is gravitation. The expanded condition is radiation. Gravitation and radiation are equal opposites. Each is helpless without The other. In fact, each condition is impossible to produce without simultaneously producing the other. Heat is the effect of multiplied resistance to the compression of gravitation. Cold is the effect of the opposite strain of resistance to evacuation, or emptiness, which results from the expansion of radiation. There is as much cold in the great expanses of space as there is heat in the compressed suns in all of this universe.“ - Walter Russell

note: that the amount of land is also much higher in the male hemisphere (see also / todo : astronomy: expanding earth).

note: that plankton prefers colder waters and is also abundant in the relatively colder equatorial area of temperature reversal.

“Cold things grow hot, a hot thing cold, a moist thing withers, a parched thing is wetted.” - Heraclitus (unity of opposites)

“Cold arctic and antarctic currents move toward the equator to find balance by sex interchange with warm currents - and warm currents equally desire that interchange and flow toward the poles to find it.” - Walter Russell

“Science says that heat is energy. I want you to think this over to see how impossible and how illogical this conclusion is (…) Heat is the sex mate of cold. Heat cannot express energy through motion unless it is surrounded by cold. Heat is as dead as a dead storage battery unless, and until, it has its cold mate to interchange with. When you breathe in you create heat. When you breathe out you create cold. YOU provided the energy to create these conditions. Exactly the same thing can be claimed for cold, for cold cannot express energy unless, and until, it is near heat, yet science does not claim that cold is energy. (…) Heat expresses energy by expanding - but cold expresses an equal energy by contracting.” - Walter and Lao Russell

“Cold generates. Generation contracts. Contraction integrates. Integration heats. Heat raddiates. Radiation expands. Expansion disintegrates. Disintegration cools. Thus it may be seen that one opposite is always born of the other, which in its turn becomes the cause of the first.” - Walter Russell

redshift and blueshift

redshift blueshift
the red-shift, no-shift (balanced ±4 zenith phase) and blue-shift of the same emitted spectral fingerprint

From the standpoint of an observer looking at a dominantly-generative system, eg. during the birth of a galaxy, the light spectrum that is emitted (and thereby seen) is shifted into the red spectrum, because the motion of the system is moving inwardly (heating up), while at the same time the emitted radiation is decreasing.

Only after the system reaches its ±4 zenith state, will the emitted radiation become the dominant system force. This is a cooling, centrifugal motion for the system, but registers as an increased energy towards the observer. Eventually degeneration overtakes the generative force and slows all (seeming) motion down into rest again.

(…) the process by which the dice become ordered is similar to that of other systems. For example, contact with a boundary can trigger the formation of crystalline order in a collection of colloidal particles suspended in a liquid; the dice may be similarly influenced by the outer cylinder wall. “What they have observed (…) is heterogeneous nucleation, or the growth of crystalline order induced by the boundaries.”” - (source)

to research: centripedal-boundary-crystallization with seed

All matter is crystallic. Crystallization is a dimension. It is the first appearance of form. Matter registers its energy through temperature dimension of heat and cold in solids of light which man calls “crystals.” Crystals are but apparent solids of light sustained in that illusion of appearance by motion. Crystallization is one of the most important dimensions of the illusion of form. (…) All accumulating mass is aiming toward gyroscopic perfection of motion and toward perfection of cubic crystallization. All diffusing mass is aiming away from gyroscopic stability, and away from the simple cubic crystallization toward amorphus complexity of crystallization.” - Walter Russell

The process of crystallization from stillness towards solid matter can also be called “condensation” (“to densify”), and the decrystallization of solid matter towards the gas state (and finally rest) can be called “ionization” (or melting).

“The light and motion of solid matter, and of gaseous matter of space, differs only in volume and condition. Water of earth is compressed into small volume while water of the heavens is expanded thousands of time in volume. Each condition is the opposite half of the cycle of water. - Walter Russell

“It will amaze the world to know that those shapes of crystals are determined in space by the shapes of the wave fields which bound the various elemental structures.” - Walter Russell

Nucleation: When sugar is supersaturated [causing boundary tensions] in water, nucleation will occur, allowing sugar molecules to stick together and form large crystal structures. (…) The most common crystallization process on Earth is the formation of ice. Liquid water does not freeze at 0 °C unless there is ice already present, cooling significantly below 0 °C is required to nucleate ice and so for the water to freeze. For example, small droplets of very pure water can remain liquid down to below -30 °C although ice is the stable state below 0 °C.” - wikipedia

Two children of equal weight playing seesaw do not interchange with each other while they are in rest. When they desire to move, they throw themselves out of balance with their fulcrum by their equal leanings, but they are in balance with each other. Motion is then imperative. When thus thrown out of balance, they must reverse their leanings to restore balance and lose it again, as all things in nature do.“ - Walter Russell

from the one, into the one … nature's spring of motion
- Walter Russell

A clock spring in rest can be wound up (concentration), after the release it reverses direction (polarity) and will be unwound (decentration) automatically towards a state of rest again.

“Light rays thus concentrated through a lens will burn a hole through paper or fabrics. Light rays proceeding in the opposite direction will expand and cool by decentrating toward space.“ - Walter Russell

mechanical gyroscope

spinning top

Another example of balanced interchange is the spinning top. In technical terms this example could be described as a gyroscope with two axes of movement, instead of just one as in the case of the seesaw.

The spinning top has a vertical rotation around the North center axis running from the ground to its top. Its fulcrum point is in the height of the center of mass along this axis, assuming it is symmetrically balanced in its mass.

The spinning top also has a horizontal rotation in the South plane (running across the golden rotor disc), around the fulcrum point at the base touching the ground.

When the two rotational forces working on a spinning top are not completely balanced in their own plane this leads to a wobbly motion. We will return to this rotational balancing act later.

natural gyroscope

twin-opposing vortices motion

“Nature has a different way of playing seesaw. Instead of oscillating upon a continually extended lever, the wave extensions of polarity withdraw into their fulcrums and re-extend by turning inside-out and outside-in.“ - Walter Russell

All mass and form comes from the still light and all mass and form returns to still light, in a never ending cycle of implosive-unbalancing and explosive-rebalancing.

“Every wave field is a cosmic projector which radiates light outward through the concave lenses of spheroidal pressure gradients to bend toward the mirrors of wave-field boundaries of zero curvature, where curvature reverses as it is reflected into neighboring wave fields. It is also a receiver of light rays which bend inwardly toward its center of gravity by way of convex lenses of pressure gradients.“ - Walter Russell

In the next sections we will see how the balance of natures gyroscopes is controlled by a dynamic leverage of the generative and degenerative pole forces.

two wavefields of twin-opposing vortices
- Walter Russell

“There are four magnetic poles in every wave field, not two as heretherefore believed. A three-dimensional cube-bounded, sphere-centered, radial universe would be impossible with but two magnetic poles. The two unsuspected poles are not unknown, however. They are the two foci so casually referred to in Kepler's law of elliptical orbits, and they are in a plane of 90-degrees from the plane of the positive and negative north and south poles. The two as-yet-ignored magnetic poles have already been referred to as east and west magnetic poles.

“The four rivers of light”
(two generative and two radiative)
- Walter Russell

The office of these east and west positive and negative poles is to control the balance of prolating and oblating spheres and their orbits as they compress into spheres and expand into rings equatorially, in opposition to the north and south poles which control the balance of extension and compression in the direction of the rotating poles. Nature is engaged solely in the manufacture of spheres of solid matter surrounded by cube wave fields of tenuous space. Spheres are created by extending the flat discs, which are the inert gases, into rings and spheroids which gradually become spheres. The opposition of the north and south magnetic poles is accountable for that. (…)“ - Walter Russell

nature's gyroscopes

“Science has a separate theory for systems of atomic structure which it does not apply to stellar systems. This is strange reasoning for science, for it conceded that large mass is but a multiple of small mass.” - Walter Russell

Below are examples of nature's electrical, gyroscopic systems at various scales (galactic, stellar, planetary, local) and at various stages in their lifecycle (generative → balanced → degenerative).

Each section is ordered from younger to older systems (as best as possible).

“Lightning is a highly generative, positive charge seeking its own pressure and potential.” - Walter Russell

When forests are in need of water their collective, dominantly-generative polarity charge will request water (by creating a higher potential for water to crystallize to). Deserts have lost this 'water request' function and need afforestation to restore that function.

Picture this hydration process as many smaller electrical-tornadoes, which create an inward (towards the trees) motion that will first draw in wind, then clouds and finally rain.

Some scientists [1] are now beginning to see this process too.

cosmic pendulum (correction: this should be seen as a 9-octave illustration)
- Walter Russell

Creation is but a swing of the cosmic pendulum from inertia, through energy, and back again to inertia, forever and forever. It is but a series of opposing pulsations of action and reaction, integration and disintegration, gravitation and radiation, appearance and disappearance.” -Walter Russell

All of the many seeming substances in this universe are but many different pressure conditions. These have been created by the interchange of two-way motion between two opposed poles of rest, which have been extended from the zero universe of knowing-Mind to simulate the multiple ideas of thinking-Mind. Any form of matter becomes another form of matter if its pressure condition is changed. Nature perpetually changes one form of matter into another by perpetually changing its pressure conditions.” - Walter Russell

Elements of matter are not permanently existent. To comprehend my meaning, you must disabuse your minds of the idea that the elements are permanently existent, for they are not. Metals are entirely voided in their salts, oxides, and silicates, and both hydrogen and oxygen are as entirely voided by water as sound is voided by silence. There is no such thing as transmutation of one element into another. One never can become another for each is voided when another condition makes its continuance impossible and another one possible. (…) Elements are not things; they are conditions. Produce a certain condition which is the pattern for hydrogen, or carbon dioxide, or sodium chloride, and they appear from space into which they continually disappear when the conditions are favorable, exactly as apples appear as the solids of apples and disappear as the gases of apples when conditions favor each stage of each cycle.” - Walter Russell

The relation and purpose of the gyroscope to the wave structure of the nine-octave periodic table of the elements is a very big subject for a brief treatise. (…) As all of the one hundred and twenty-one elements, isotopes and inert gases, which are produced by the electric-wave machine in Nature's workshop, acquire their seemingly different properties because of the gyroscopic wheels which spin them into their various conditions, it is necessary to know how Nature causes the same kind of units of motion to appear to be so many different substances.” - Walter Russell

The beginning (+1) and end (±4) waveforms of matter - Walter Russell

“Here follows the law of the cycle of appearance and disappearance of form. Cold generates. Generation contracts. Contraction integrates. Integration heats. Heat raddiates. Radiation expands. Expansion disintegrates. Disintegration cools. Thus it may be seen that one opposite is always born of the other, which in its turn becomes the cause of the first. Thus it may be seen that the disintegration of the preponderantly generating sun becomes the regeneration of this planet.” - Walter Russell

inert gas seed

The inert gases are the storehouses of all of the states of motion contained within the mass of the wave. The purpose of the wave is to transfer states of motion from one potential to another. This is nature's method of accumulating the energy constant from low potential to high potential, octave by octave, in a series of progressive steps until maximum motion has been reached. Every state of motion is the result of a concept of that state. The purpose of motion is to contract concept into form and then to expand it into the memory of form. All concepts are but recollections of eternal ideas. All forms are but the regenerated memories of universal Mind. Each action of motion is recorded by a reaction in the master-tone inert gas of each octave.” - Walter Russell

“The universe might very appropriately be likened to a harp of nine strings, with nine tones in each string. In our diagram the strings are all indicated as of the same length for simplicity. In Nature the lower string is the longest. They grow gradually shorter up to the 9th. Likewise, the tonal positions and frequencies change in each string. In every case each note on each string is one octave higher than its next lower string. You will note that each string begins with a zero and ends with a zero. These are the key notes of each octave. They are the cathodes of every electric anode. They are called inert gases, such as helium, neon, argon, krypton, etc. They are the seed of all matter and the supreme mystery of matter. In them is the answer to the great mystery of life and death (…)” - Walter Russell

All matter, from microscopic cells to majestic suns 'unwind' spirally, and centrifugally by ejecting rings from the planes of their equators.” - Walter Russell

When the [maximum] amplitude position is attained, its radiation will then begin to exceed its generation. It will be in the same condition as a man who has just passed his maturity high point when death and life interchange their preponderances. From that point on, cold space will bore a black hole through the sun from pole to pole and it will expand into a giant ring centered by a smaller sun recondensed from the remnant of its expanding self. Many such ring nebulae are visible in the heavens, notably in the Lyra Ring Nebula (M57)” - Walter Russell

natural growth

“Nature's method of growth. Everyone is familiar with a motion-picture projection machine, and its method of projecting series of pictures so fast that the illusion of motion is created. Everyone knows that these pictures seem continuous only because they change so rapidly. If the film is turned very slowly, however, you can see that there are blank spaces between each picture. In Nature those are the rest periods where the next picture of any unfolding idea changes. The man-made motion picture has but few changed pictures each second but Nature's thought-wave pictures change over seven hundred billion times a second, which is the speed of thought. - Lao Russell

“This principle is of the utmost import that everyone should know, for that is the way a tree, or rose, or a man grows. (…) That means also that you are not thirty years old, as you think you are, for not one particle of you is older than one seven hundred billionth of a second. Neither you, nor earth, nor suns of heaven, are older than that. These changing motion-picture projections of you are what make you seem to grow. (…) by dying billions of times a second to be reborn again with more of the pattern which was in the seed. (…) by projecting new patterns to add to the old ones and withdrawing them for cancellation to again give birth to more changing thought patterns. (…) The oak tree unfolded from an invisible, ultramicroscopic seed. The seed is Mind desire. As the tree pattern unfolded from the seed to live the life of an oak it simultaneously refolded back to die in thousands of seeds of desire to live again. (…) rapidly superimposed positive images which are being projected through seed negatives by the Light of desire in the Creator's Mind.” - Lao Russell

science applications

  • re-define ”philosophy“ as: a search for truth and meaning [the impression / receiving], and helping with the wise (deeply honest, compassionate and courageous) application of the results of that search [the expression / re-giving].
    • True science and spirituality are One. These two fundamental and complementary philosophies can not be separated from the One Light of Thinking Mind. Science works from the outside-in, spirituality from the inside-out. Both may be corrupted by: impure desires, a lack of knowledge and other human weaknesses.
