John Keely's 40 laws - describes an alternative vi
Preface to Keelys' Laws of Sympathetic Vibration
John W. Keely worked out a system detailing the laws which govern
the fusion of energy into what we perceive as molecular aggregations.
Keelys' Laws of Vibration also describe the resonant relationships
which occur between mass aggregations.
Publisher and author, William J. Colville was a close friend of Keely.
Colville was also a student of metaphysics. His friendship with Keely
resulted in the sharing of many of Keelys' research findings, including
forty of Keelys' laws. These laws were included in a little-known
metaphysical novel, "Dashed Against the Rock", which was published in
"Dashed Against the Rock" is the story of a young establishment
scientist who is led through stages to the acceptance of the vibratory
laws which govern mental science.
Dan A. Davidson, in his book, "A Breakthrough to New Free Energy
Sources", gives an excellent condensed history of Keely and his work.

KEELYS' LAWS OF VIBRATION
1. Law of Matter and Force:
Coextensive and coeternal with space and duration, there exists of
all matter: these are in a state of constant vibratory motion,infinite
in extent, unchangeable in quantity the initial of all forms of energy.
2. Law of Corporeal Vibrations:
All coherent aggregates when isolated from like bodies, or when
immersed of confined in media composed of matter in a different state,
vibrate at a given ascertainable pitch.
3. Law of Corporeal Oscillation:
All coherent aggregates not isolated from like bodies, oscillate
at a period-frequency varying with the tensions that augment and
diminish the state of equilibrium.
4. Law of Harmonic Vibrations:
All coherent aggregates ate perpetually vibrating at a period-
frequency corresponding to some harmonic ratio of the fundamental pitch
of the vibrating body; this pitch is a multiple of the pitch of the
5. Law of Transmissive Vibraic Energy:
All oscillating and vibrating coherent aggregates create in the
media in which they are immersed, outwardly propagated concentric waves
of alternate condensation and rarefaction, having a period-frequency
identical with the pitch of the aggregate.
6. Law of Sympathetic Oscillation:
Coherent aggregates immersed in a medium pulsating at their
natural pitch simultaneously oscillate with the same frequency, whether
the pitch of the medium be a unison of any harmonic of the fundamental
pitch of the creative aggregate.
7. Law of Attraction:
Juxtaposed coherent aggregates vibrating in unison, of harmonic
ratio, are mutually attracted.
8. Law of Repulsion:
Juxtaposed coherent aggregates vibrating in discord are mutually
9. Law of Cycles:
Coherent aggregates harmonically united constitute centres of
vibration bearing relation to the fundamental pitch not multiples ofthe
harmonic pitch, and the production of secondary unions between
themselves generate pitches that ate discords, either in their unisons,
or overtones with the original pitch; from harmony is generated
discord, the inevitable cause of perpetual transformation.
10. Law of Harmonic Pitch:
Any aggregate in a state of vibration develops in addition to its
fundamental pitch a series of vibration in symmetrical sub-multiple
portions of itself, bearing ratios of one, two, three, of more times
its fundamental pitch.
11. Law of Force:
Energy manifests itself in three forms; Creative the vibrating
aggregate: Transmissive, being the propagation of isochronous waves
through the media in which it is immersed; Attractive, being its action
upon other aggregates capable of vibrating in unisons or harmony.
12. Law of Oscillating Atomic Substances:
Coherent atomic substances are capable of oscillating at a pitch
varying directly as the density, and inversely as the linear dimensions
from one period of frequency per unit of time to the 21st octave above,
producing the creative force of Souity, whose transmissive force
(Sound) is propagated through the media of solids,liquids, and gases,
and whose stated effect (Sonism) produces attractions and repulsions.
13. Law of Sono-thermity:
Internal vibrations of atomic substances and atomic molecules are
capable of vibrating at a period-frequency directly as their density,
inversely as their linear dimensions, directly as the coefficient of
their tension from the 21st to the 42d octaves, producing the creative
force (Sono-thermity), whose transmissive force (Sono-therm) is
propagated in solid, liquid, gaseous, and ultra-gaseous media,
statically producing adhesions and molecular unions, or disintegration,
according to the Law of Harmonic Attraction and Repulsion.
14. Law of Oscillating Atoms:
All atoms when in a state of tension are capable of oscillating at
a pitch inversely as the cube of their atomic weights, and directly as
their tension from 42 to 63 octaves per second, producing the creative
force (Thermism), whose transmissive force (Rad-energy) propagated in
solid, liquid, and gaseous ether, produces the static effects (Cohesion
and Chemism) on other atoms of association, or dissociation, according
to the Law of Harmonic Attraction and Repulsion.
Scholium: Dark radiant heat begins at absolute zero temperature,
and extend through light, chemical rays, actinic rays, and infra-
violet rays, up to the dissociation of all molecules to the 63d
15. Law of Vibrating Atomolic Substances:
Atoms are capable of vibrating within themselves at a pitch
inversely as the Dyne (the local coefficient of Gravity), and as the
atomic volume, directly as the atomic weight, producing the creative
force (Electricity), whose transmissive force is propagated through
atomolic solids, liquids, and gases, producing induction and the static
effect of magnetism upon other atoms of attraction or repulsion,
according to the Law of Harmonic Attraction and Repulsion.
Scholium: The phenomena of Dynamic Electricity through a metallic
conductor and of induction are identical. In a metallic conductor,
the transmission is from atom to atom, through homologous
interstices, filled with ether, presenting small areas in close
proximity. In crystalline structures, heat, which expands the
atoms, by twisting them produces striae, increases the resistance,
etc. Between parallel wires and through air the induction takes
place from large areas through a rarefied medium composed of a
mixture of substances, whose atoms are separated by waves of
repulsion of various pitches, discordant to electric vibrations;
the said atoms sympathetically absorb the vibrations and dissipate
from themselves, as centres, concentric waves of electric energy
which produces heat and gravism.
16. Law of Oscillating Atomoles:
Atomoles oscillating at a uniform pitch (determined by their
uniform size and weight) produce the creative force Atomolity, whose
transmissive form, Gravism, is propagated through more rarefied media,
producing the stated effect upon all other atomoles, denominated
17. Law of Transformation of Forces:
All forces are different forms of Universal Energy unlike in their
period-frequency, merging into each other by imperceptible increments;
each form representing the compass of 21 octaves. Each form or pitch
may be transformed into an equivalent quantity of another pitch above
or below it in the scale of 105 octaves. The transformation can occur
only through its static effect, developing vibrations of harmonic
pitches above and below their fundamental vibration, or developing with
juxtaposed aggregates, resultant and difference, or third order, as the
case may be.
Scholium: A table of the intervals and harmonics of the normal
harmonic scale will indicate the ratios in which the
forces will occur.
18. Law of Atomic Pitch:
Atoms have each a different and definite pitch, at which they
Scholium: Atomic pitch is determined directly from its simple
Scholium: Atomic pitch is determined by computations from its
associate spectrum with all other atoms, as in known spectra.
Scholium: Atomic pitches are more important working data then
atomic weights; tables of atomic pitches must be precise.
19. Law of Variation of Atomic Pitch by Rad-energy:
The higher harmonics and overtones of projected rad-energy are of
a pitch sufficiently high to cause the atom to expand: by causing the
atomoles to vibrate systematically the same influence will cause the
atom to contract, and thus by changing the volume, atomic pitch is
20. Law of Variation of Atomic Pitch by Electricity and Magnetism:
Electricity and Magnetism produce internal vibration in the atom,
which are followed by proportional changes in volume and, therefore,
21. Law of Variation of Atomic Pitch by Temperature:
Atoms in chemical combination oscillate with increasing amplitude
directly as the temperature, and simultaneously absorb overtones of
higher harmonics, producing expansion of volume and diminution of
Rule: The gradual approach of the temperature of harmonic
combination can be observed by mutually comparing superimposed
spectra; chemical combination commences when the fundamental lines
of each spectrum bear harmonic ratios by linear measurement.
22. Law of Pitch of Atomic Oscillation:
Atoms not isolated and in a state of tension between forces that
oppose and increase the equilibrium oscillate bodily at a pitch that is
a resultant of the atomic weight, atomic volume, and tension.
23. Law of Variation of Pitch of Atomic Oscillation by Pressure:
The frequency of atomic oscillation increases and diminishes
inversely as the square of the pressure.
24. Law of Variation of Atomic Oscillation by Temperature:
The force of cohesion diminishes inversely as the square of the
distance the atoms are apart, and the force of the chemical affinity
diminishes in the same ratio. Heat increases the amplitude of the
oscillations in a direct ratio to the temperature of the natural scale.
Scholium: New thermometers and accurate thermometric tables, on
the natural bases, wherein doubling the temperature doubles the
pitch of the transmissive energy, are required. Such a table of
temperature will bear natural relations to atomic weights,
pitches, specific heats, chemical affinities, fusions,
solubilities, etc., and will disclose new laws. One table for each
must be constructed.
25. Law of Variation of Atomic Oscillation by Electricity:
The electric current destroys cohesion and chemical tension
directly as square of current in amperes, inversely as the resistance
in ohms, inversely as the chemical equivalent, and conversely as the
coefficient of the difference between the freezing and volatilizing
temperature of mass acted upon.
26. Law of Variation of Atomic Oscillation by Sono-thermism:
Diminishes the tensions directly as the quantity of heat developed
and in antithetical proportion to the harmonics absolved.
27. Law of Chemical Affinity:
Atoms whose atomic pitches are in either unison, harmonic or
concordant ratios, unite to form molecules.
Corollary: When two atoms are indifferent, they may be made to
unite by varying the pitch of either, or both.
Scholium: This necessitates the construction of tables
representing variation of atomic pitches by temperature, pressure,
Scholium: Tables of all harmonics and concords, and harmonics
founded upon a normal harmonic scale, are equally essential.
Scholium: Optical instruments may be made to measure pitches of
28. Law of Chemical Dissociation:
If the pitch of either atom, in a molecule, be raised or lowered:
or, if they both be unequally raised of lowered in pitch until the
mutual ratio be that of a discord; or, if the oscillation amplitude be
augmented by heat until the atom are with the concentric waves of
attraction, - the atoms will separate.
29. Law of Chemical Transposition:
New molecules must be harmonics of the fundamental pitch.
30. Law of Chemical Substitution (too complex for brief statement).
31. Law of Catalysis:
The presence of harmonics and discords.
32. Law of Molecular Synthesis and Combination (Organic):
The molecular pitch must be a derived harmony of the radicals.
Scholium: Reconstruction of electric units to represent pitches
33. Law of Chemical Morphology:
The angle of crystallization is determined by the relation between
the molecular pitch of the crystallizing substance to the vibration-
density of the liquid depositing it.
34. Law of Atomic Dissociation:
Overtones of high rad-energy pitches produce separation of the
atomoles and recombinations among the atomolic molecules of the atoms.
35. Law of Atomolic Synthesis of Chemical Elements:
Harmonic pitches of atomolity produce association of etheric-
atomolic particles to form atoms: the kind of atom is determinable by
the pitches employed.
36. Law of Heat:
Atoms under the tension of chemical combination oscillate with an
amplitude directly as the temperature, inversely as the pressure, and
as the square of the specific heat. Diminishing the pitch of
oscillation inversely as the square of the distance of the atoms apart,
and simultaneously increasing the vibrating pitch of the atom by
absorption of overtones and higher harmonics.
37. Law of Electro-chemical Equivalents:
An atom vibrates sympathetically under the influence of electric
energy, such undertones of which are absorbed as are a harmonic or
harmony of the electric pitch; the amount of energy absorbed being
directly as the arithmetical ratio of the undertone of the fundamental
Scholium: A table of elector-chemical equivalents on the normal
basis will indicate the electrical conditions and amount of
38. Law of Cohesion:
The cohesion between atoms diminishes directly as the square root
of the pressure and temperature, and as the square of electric
39. Law of Refractive Indices:
A table of the refractive indices of substances indicates their
molecular pitch; and in connection with crystalline form the phase of
40. Law of Electric Conductivity:
Electric energy is transmitted through homogeneous bodies with a
completeness in direct proportion as the atoms are more or less perfect
harmonics of the electric pitch, but not as all through substances
whose atoms are discordant to the electric pitch; also through
molecular substances, when their resultant notes are harmonics of the
electric pitch,-the transmissions being inversely as the temperature,
directly as the density diminished in proportion to the amount of
crystallization, and inversely as the cube of the dyne, also directly
as the reciprocal of the magnetic intensity.
As we believe the above statement to be of priceless value to the
world, in proportion as they are comprehended, we offer no apology to
our readers for introducing so many technicalities, but publish them in
the expectant hope that some struggling seeker after scientific verity
may find in them a key to the solution of many perplexing mysteries.
