Ancient and Modern Physics

By Thomas E. Willson

Those primary rules were chanced on and utilized long ago fifty years--in the reminiscence of the dwelling. they've got revolutionized technology in all its departments. Our textbooks on Chemistry, mild, warmth, electrical energy and Sound have needed to be solely re-written; and in lots of different departments, significantly in medication and psychology, they've got but to be re-written. Our textbooks are in a transition country, every one new one going a step farther, to make the swap sluggish from the outdated varieties of trust to the hot, in order that even Tyndall's textbook on "Sound" is now so antedated, or antiquated, that it could possibly were written in darkest Africa ahead of the pyramids have been equipped, rather than 20 years in the past.

Suit, energy, colour, briefly, in every little thing, it relies on the invisible one. The invisible dominates, governs, disposes. The obvious is simply its attendant shadow, altering because the invisible, etheric bar alterations, and recording for our senses those invisible alterations. "The invisible swap continuously comes first; the invisible phenomena consistently precede the seen. "In all this actual global - in all this universe - there's not anything, now not even a grain of sand or an atom of hydrogen, that's now not as this bar of iron is - the shadow solid on a visual global via the unknown and mysterious paintings of an invisible international.

Willson, what's the melting element of iron? Mr. Willson, while used to be `H. M. S. Pinafore' produced for the 1st time? " and so on. , and so forth. and each time, Mr. Willson acquired up within the leisurely demeanour unusual to him, reached for a few publication from the cabinets that covered the room, gave the specified info, and as leisurely back to the "pranic atom," or to "come and speak guy speak, Willy," or to no matter what our topic chanced to be on the time. Mr. Willson's gratitude to the Theosophical discussion board for its acceptance was once disproportionately nice.

Their gaseous starting place there will be as enterprise as igneous rock the following. The strength of repulsion created via the 3 better notes of an octave capability simply as a lot on the appeal created via the 3 reduce notes, if it is in a chemical retort, inside of this earth, or inside this universe. the 2 forces stability, and are precisely equivalent. they try merely inside kinetic zones. Given the big manasic globe of differentiated topic, its atoms uniting in several numbers to shape molecules because the bases of undemanding elements, manasic components, after all.

It has 4. You purely encompass it with etheric atoms, and this can be right as far as it is going. you just desire to clarify actual difficulties. yet there are different difficulties to be defined, difficulties of existence and brain, and an analogous wisdom you've explains them in addition to the others, in case you easily avail your self of it. that you just don't think of the atom as four-fold rather than two-fold is your individual fault. i haven't advised you whatever you probably did now not already understand. i've got basically requested you to use your current wisdom of physics to those difficulties of lifestyles and brain, and observe your reasoning powers.

That suggests the etheric atoms are actually vibrating swifter, taking more room, and feature unavoidably pressured every one actual atom farther aside. The bar is not just longer, yet softer, and because the vibrations elevate in rapidity the time will come whilst it is going to bend by way of its personal weight, or even whilst it is going to develop into a liquid and a fuel. "If you set your hand at any place close to the bar you are going to think a sensation referred to as warmth, and say it has develop into sizzling. the cause of that's that you're in real and literal contact with the bar or iron throughout the ether.
