THE ONENESS OF GRAVITY & MAGNETISM
By Walter & Lao Russell (source)
We have now arrived at a point where the relationship of Gravity and Magnetism can be more easily comprehended. They both belong to the zero universe. They are both one, but each have a different connotation in common usage which require two words to define their separate meanings, just as an armchair and a rocking chair are both of them chairs, but require two words to differentiate them.
Gravity really means a point, or shaft, that can be located in the invisible universe, where Mind desires to concentrate thought, and thought-power. You cannot see gravity but you can locate it at the very center of every creating thought-ring, which constitutes what we call bodies of matter. You cannot see Mind either, but you can locate Mind also, for Mind is also that center which balances, controls, surveys and motivates its electric thought-rings in their effort to simulate the Idea existent within that stillness, by fast or slow motion.
There is not more gravity or less gravity anywhere. The seeming increase of the power of gravity
is electric potential, which means faster motion in smaller circles. Gravity shafts, and centers of gravity are the omnipotent zero of the Mind Universe. It is the same everywhere. It is all-powerful
everywhere. The nearer that motion can come to it the greater the power which can be drawn from it.
In man that power is desire. Desire for closeness to God gives one that power in the measure of man's desire. The measure of power which man takes from it is the measure which is dependent upon his own desire for omnipotence, and his willingness to multiply his thought-power and action into electric potential by action. In so doing he decentrates to the Source of where gravity multiplication begins in order to conceive Idea and gain knowledge. He then concentrates to manifest God's omnipotence in him.
Gravity and the Magnetic Light are ONE, but the connotation of gravity differentiates it from the word Mind, or Light, just as the word Soul differentiates it from the word God. They are the same, however, for God is the Universal Soul while Soul in man mean's Identity, or Being, as a unit of the Universal Being. The moment that electricity divides the One changeless condition into pairs it is necessary to balance and control those pairs. Gravity is the Magnetic control and balancer, although its power never multiplies or divides.
Where gravity is stillness is. An area of stillness always surrounds gravity shafts. These areas are the holes which center the rings of electric potential which continually multiply compression, or divide it by expanding, in accord with the desires of Nature, or man, to manifest that all-power which is within, and omnipresent in all things.
The one most important thing to burn into your consciousness is to realize that wherever motion is it is centered by stillness, and that stillness is its CAUSE.
The universe is composed of electric thought-rings of motion. Each thought-ring is centered and controlled by the Creator of that thought-ring. God creates His universe that way. You create your universe that way.
It is God who sits there. It is the Magnetic Light of all-knowing, all-powerful Mind which sits there. We call that centering point gravity. The reason why we call it gravity is because there are adjacent thought-rings which have united together so closely that we think of them as mass, instead of rings.
Each added ring of the mass has its Mind-center in its own plane. In a mass, therefore, there are seemingly so many Mind-centers of stillness that they constitute a shaft. The word gravity arises from this fact.
Now you have the whole story except for one thought to complete it. Every point of that gravity point is the same point, for God's zero universe is omnipresent.
It may take you many years to fully grasp the above, but you can never comprehend it by reasoning with your brain as a sense basis, for in that process is the motion of thinking. You must learn to "be
still and know."
The inner thinking of deep meditation will take you into the zero world of reality where illusion does not exist. The more you are able to find that center where the Light of Creation dwells, the more you will be able to discover the Light of your Self, and that is the greatest miracle that can happen to anyone.
When you find your Self you also find God in His kingdom within you. When you have thus acquired full awareness of your own omniscience, omnipotence and omnipresence you can then knowingly, and authoritatively, say: "I and my Father are ONE."
Man's unfolding power increases in the measure in which God-awareness in him increases. The space which we cannot give here to explain our meaning is fully compensated, however, by the explanation in GOD WILL WORK WITH YOU BUT NOT FOR YOU. The more you study that book the more you will feel your closeness with God and dependence upon Him. As your power increases through that greater comprehension your command over motion, and over your own destiny, increases in proportion.
The main thing for you to fix into your consciousness is the fact that this is a Mind and motion universe, and that Mind centers motion. In the Mind is all-knowing and all-power. In the motion is the image form of Mind-knowing which manifests Mind-power without being that power.
In that sense it would be more exactly definitive to term it a Mind and Mind-thought universe —
for all electric motion is but the record in motion of Mind-thinking. It would be even more simple to think of our universe as a Cosmic cinema, for it parallels the cinema of man in every respect.
It is necessary to correct the popular conception regarding what is meant by the term magnetism,
which is now popularly regarded as a physical force, closely related to electricity. We hear much about magnetic fields, electro-magnetism, magnets, magnetic lines of force and such phenomena.
We hear about the power of magnetism to pick up tacks, needles and small iron objects with small magnets, and the power of lifting tons by large magnets. We often hear of the universe being referred to as an electro-magnetic universe. It could properly be so termed but only in the sense
which we would apply to a Mind and matter universe, or the term Creator and Creation.
We also hear it said that the earth is a huge magnet, such as the bar magnet made within an electric coil. It is not like a bar magnet, however. The middle of a bar magnet is "dead." The center of the earth is alive.
Earths and suns are the result of collisions which occur between polarized pairs where two bar magnets come together as you will see in figures 11, 12, and 13. These polarized pieces of steel should not be called magnets, however. Like the earth they are electrically created. They are electrical effects controlled by Magnetic stillness, which means Mind-stillness. It is popularly believed, however, that magnetism comes from matter which is endowed with magnetic qualities. It has ever been claimed that all of such material must be in the earth's crust not more than fifty miles deep, and that influence creates a magnetic field for earths and suns. It, also, presumably created magnetic fields and lines of force, which bend around from equators to poles. There are many such
theories, all of which are groundless, for they are all of them perfectly explainable electric effects which we will enlarge upon in Chapter IX.
Much confusion has been set up in world laboratories because of this concept of magnetism. The physicist deflects electrons from their paths in vacuum tubes by holding a magnet near their path, and sincerely believes that the power of magnetism does that instead of electric polarity. He does not realize that the polarized condition in his "magnet" is an electrically divided equilibrium which has created two strong electric vortices, which his electrons are being pulled into just as particles floating in your bath tub are pulled into its spirally turning outflow.
Hundreds of other misinterpretations of what electricity is doing fills all research laboratories and not only slows their progress but gives them a tremendous amount of unnecessary work in experiment after hopeless experiment, at tremendous cost to find out things which are quite simply predictable to one who knows CAUSE and the WHY of things.
Before passing this subject it may be well to give one more example of misinterpretation where electric effects are attributed to magnetism. In the astronomical laboratory they use an instrument called a spectroscope which tells what the stars are composed of in lines of colored light.
Michael Faraday "discovered" a relation between "magnetism" and light. Later a scientist, named Zeeman, used that principle to detect the "magnetic fields" of stars by applying a magnetic control to the spectroscopic light lines of the stars. As a result he succeeded in splitting one line into two, making it look like a tuning fork. With a stronger, "magnetic field" he again split those two so there were four, which then looked like a table fork. The result is interesting, and valuable, but it is not what it is claimed to be. It is a division of one fixed condition into pairs, and octaves of pairs, and that is the sole office of electricity.
Why call the polarizing principle of the electric current a Zeeman effect? The word magnetism should in no way be used, for it connotes a physicalattribute. A proper way to connect it to this electric universe of motion would be to term it the Magnetic-electric universe, meaning the spiritual-
physical universe, or the Mind-thinking universe, in the sense that the zero Magnetic universe is the Creator, and the motion universe is Creation. Likewise, we should never use the term matter in
relation to the visible universe, for the word matter connotes substance, and there is no substance in all of the motion universe. We must someday remodel our concepts to the realization that the God Light of all-knowing and all-energy is all there is in this omnipresent universe of Mind. Mind thinks its knowing, however, and electrically records the imaginings of that thinking by two-way divided effects of motion. Motion simulates that which it seems to be but that is all it does.
It creates a motion-sound-picture by the light which is projected from Mind. What observers think of as magnetic power is the measure of electric potential which is created around gravity shafts and centers. The multiplication of electric potential around gravity shafts is — in reality — the manner in which Mind-thinking concentrates.
It is not gravity, or Mind, or stillness, which multiplies, however. That which multiplies and divides is electric potential only, and that means fast or slow centripetal or centrifugal motion. The gravity which evidences Mind-concentrative power is changeless. Motion surrounding it alone changes.
The electric current begins and ends at cathodes. Cathodes are still points in the zero universe from which the energy of desire for creation is expressed. Chemically, cathodes are the inert gases of the octaves, which are not elements, for they will not mix with them. They are the seed from which the elements spring, and to which they return. From the spectrum standpoint they are white light from which all colors extend when put under electric strain and to which they return when the strain ceases.
From the tonal point of view they are the keynotes of the octave from which one can never escape knowledge of their presence in every tonal harmony. From the mathematical point of view they are the zero of the whole octave, which is more fully described in Chapter XI. From the geometric form point of view, which its basis for motion gives it, the inert gas consists of four rings, one within the other.
1. Magnetic poles are "created" by coiling a wire around a bar of steel in such a manner that the compressing rings of the electric current will produce these so-called magnetic poles at the ends of a bar of steel. That is what electricity does. It produces a potential of electric motion around a still center, but the still center is gravity. To be correct these poles should be called gravity poles, connected by a gravity shaft. They control the sex-division of Nature. The Magnetic Light is sexless for it is in equilibrium.
Its electric division into pairs creates the dual sex condition which we know as male and female. When these two conditions unite they become ONE. Gravity poles are TWO, when divided by the electric current. When they unite they become ONE CENTER OF GRAVITY. We have always called them magnetic poles when they were TWO but when those two were united we have then called them a center of gravity, and that is not consistent.
2. Electricity, therefore, produced the poles by compressing the holes out of the rings. They did not come there in any other way. Electric motion does not create gravity poles. It merely locates existent
points and makes them identifiable.
It makes the invisible become seemingly visible. However, it never occurred to early observers that the division of God's stillness into sexed pairs would have to have a measure of balanced control over such a division. In other words, if the one condition of balanced stillness in the zero universe is divided into two unbalanced conditions, it is then necessary to have two controlling points of stillness around which motion can spin while thus divided.
3. The two poles are, therefore, poles of still Magnetic Light around which the divided electric pairs can manifest their light of motion. The two poles, thus divided, have within them the desire to be united as one, by uniting the two divided pairs of conditions as one. In this manner the two poles which have united, become the common center of gravity of the whole gravity shaft of the mass controlled by it.
4. Magnetic poles of gravity are still centers which balance and control the electric motion which surrounds them. Electric motion can be insulated from all other electric motion, but magnetic polarity, or the gravity center where poles unite as one, cannot be insulated from anything, for they are of the omnipresent stillness upon which the universe of motion is based.
5. Neither polarity nor gravity are "created" by electricity. They merely become points which can be located in the omnipresent stillness. When, therefore, we say that electricity creates the condition of gravity, we mean that electric motion is spinning around a point in the omnipresent vacuum which controls that motion.
6. Polarity begins as sexless unity at the cathode, which is the location for the inert gases in the octaves of elements. From there it is divided into sex-conditioned pairs as they are ex tended centripetally toward anodes. They again unite as one sexless unity at amplitude wave positions where they collide and become the two hemispheres of an incandescent microscopic, or macrocosmic sun, which corresponds to a "loop of force" in an electric current.
The order of creation, as expressed by the electric wave, electric current, or magnet is as follows: RED—O—BLUE RED—O—BLUE RED—O—BLUE RED—O—BLUE. Fig. 47-A is a series of bar magnets placed in this order. You cannot take one of these bar magnets out of this order and reverse its ends—as shown in B. If you do so you have two males and two females where the normal mates of opposite sexes should be. This would result in the following impossible order
RED—O—BLUE BLUE—O—RED RED—O—BLUE.
8. Electricity spins around all centers in this whole universe in one direction only. C. represents this universal direction of electric spinning around the same series of bar magnets. That one direction is clockwise, or anticlockwise, according to the position of the observer. If you look at the spiral turning from one end, in the direction of the other end, you will see a clockwise direction. If you look at it by reversing your positionyou see it anticlockwise. The direction of turning does not change because
you change. You cannot pick out one half of a cycle, however, and reverse it as indicated in D.
9. The most important new thought in relation to electricity is that every action creates only one cycle of an electric current. That one cycle is the electric record of that action. The omnipresence—
or Oneness of the universe—repeats that record throughout the universe. The motion of your little finger, or of a dynamite blast, will create one cycle for each action, for electricity is the recorder of Mind-thought, and Mind-thoughts are consecutive.
10. Future laboratory techniques should eliminate from two thirds to nine tenths of its wiring. This will follow a greater knowledge of the geometry and mathematics of space, and especially the tonal nature of octave waves, to make it possible for cathodes to find their anodes without wires, as they do in Nature. The cylindrical solenoids of today should be entirely eliminated, especially where they encase anodes and prevent their expression of power by the way of equators. Vacuum tubes for every purpose should be entirely re-designed to conform with the action-reaction mathematics of the cycle, which accelerates and decelerates in cube ratios, as potential is multiplied for one half of
the cycle, and divided for the other half. The cylindrical coil ignores this law of Nature, even as Einstein ignored it, and makes very clumsy affairs of step-up transformers and a tremendous complexity in electronic machines, which is entirely unnecessary.
It is said that storms in the northern hemisphere are anticlockwise and are clockwise in the southern hemisphere. That is because you are looking down upon it from one end, then you are looking up into it from the other end. You would see the same effect if you look into the spiral of your bath tub drain, then look up from under it.
Fig. 47-E illustrates the fact that you cannot pick out one section of a wave, or of an electric current, and reverse that one section. If you do this you will reverse the universal direction of motion, and the universal division of sexed pairs. Nature will not allow this to take place. See 47-F.
To account for this unnatural phenomena The Coulomb Law was adopted, which says that opposites attract, meaning oppositely sexed mates, and likes repel, meaning similarly sexed pairs. This law is invalid, for oppositely sexed mates do not attract. They are forced into collision by the electric action of dividing Oneness into unit pairs. The instant that they do collide they use their utmost endeavors to re-attain the sex-divided condition by recharging their discharged condition. Nature helps in this process by assisting to recharge with every heartbeat, every breathing cycle, and the food one eats.
Space will not allow further amplification of this process in the nature of electricity, for enough has already been given in the high points of essentials to serve the purpose of this book. It is not well, however, to leave this mystery of how "magnetism" picks up iron nails and "attracts" steel needles, unexplained, for the entire electrical engineering world is paying heavily for lack of this understanding in many ways, the more expensive one being the vast wastage caused by building improper coils, solenoids, armatures, step-up, step-down transformers and electronic tubes.
The element iron—like cobalt—is formed almost at the very amplitude of the wave. Its position is almost at the collision point where mates find unity in each other. Also, iron is on the red side of the spectrum division, and the red side bores within the blue when they seek unity. Nickel, cobalt and copper are on the blue side of the same octave. Because of this position in the wave, iron and cobalt are so constructed under high compression and high melting points that they "remember" the motion of the electric coil which borned them, even after that coil is removed. The spinning effect still continues within them, and will still continue for many years unless they are heated to a sufficiently high temperature to explode the power of electric potential, which these poles have
accumulated. Conversely, cold multiplies that memory which heat destroys. At absolute zero, polarity and conductivity are both more intense. It should be sufficiently convincing that the "magnetism" attributed to this electric effect could not be an existent force, for if it were it could not be destroyed by cold.
Factually, cold multiplies electric potential,and heat divides it. This fact of Nature should bring to an end this unnatural concept which attributes electrical effects to something other than electricity.
Copper and nickel occupy the same relation on the blue side of their octave that iron and cobalt occupy on the red side, yet neither of them are able to retain the memory of the electric coil which borned them. The reason for that is because the blue side seeks the outside .of mass and, therefore, has lower densities, with consequent less power to retain a "memory" of the motion.
Regarding the compass needle which seeks the point of north at one end and the point of south at the other end, the principle is the same. Every compass needle is a miniature bar magnet. I
f you place a lot of iron filings on paper, in the familiar way shown in all text books, and shakethem over a magnet, those findings will form curved lines. These curved lines are called magnetic lines of force on that paper, and also in the so-called magnetic field of a planet. They are not magnetic lines of force.
They are merely the curved planes of opposing pressures which electricity is causing in its efforts to compress. The vortex of gravity which is in the compass needle, will follow these pressures. Every
effect of motion in this universe is an electrical effect caused by an electrical force acting under the control of the invisible Magnetic universe. The invisible universe entirely dominates and controls the
visible universe, but motion is entirely electric.
We have very briefly given the essentials of the construction of matter and the true nature of electricity, gravitation, radiation, radioactivity and magnetism. Even though the entire process is as simple as we stated it in one paragraph at the beginning of Part II, its aspects are many, for its effects and its divisions are many. We have not departed from the pattern laid down in that paragraph during this brief narrative, nor do we depart from it in the 48 lessons of our Study Course.
Beyond that is still the need for further volumes, but this simple principle can not be exceeded, no matter how many volumes are needed for greater amplification of essentials.
There are still many essentials which we have not touched upon, such as space geometry and mathematics which determine the pressures of the chemical elements, in order to master and control the principle of transmutation, which is now right at our doors, and the control of drought. Even in all of these it is impossible to exceed the one principle laid down in that paragraph in any effect of motion in this entire universe.
