Brief History of Keely
John Ernst Worrel Keely was born in 1827 and died on September 3, 1898. Keely's parents died in an epidemic when he was a young boy and he was raised by his grandfather Ernst. Ernst was an accomplished musician, composer, and symphony orchestra conductor. Early on, Ernst recognized that his grandson, John, was a musical prodigy, so musical training became a part of John's life and formed the basis for his discoveries in sympathetic vibratory physics. A career in music did not appeal to the adventurous Keely. Instead, he was impressed by a famous statement by Pagganni, the world renowned violinist, that given the mass chord of a bridge Pagganni could destroy the bridge by playing this note on the violin.
Keely left school when he was a teenager and went off with the circus for a few years; however, his background in music and his intense interest in science caused Keely to settle down and get married. Keely used his background in carpentry to earn a living. Much of his income was spent on experiments in sound vibration.
Circa 1866, while subjecting water to various sound vibrations, Keely had an explosion in his laboratory which wrecked the apparatus. This event was the turning point of his scientific dabbling and for six years of intense experimentation Keely worked to duplicate the effect of converting water to energy with sound vibration. He found that under certain conditions, a frequency of 42,800 vibrations per second would convert water to pure energy. Not steam nor hydrogen and oxygen, but a much more potent higher powered energy, which Keely came to believe was the luminiferous aether, the very energy out of which the universe was formed.
In 1874 a group of investors formed around Keely, the Keely Motor Company, with the expressed intention of exploiting this newfound aetheric force. The company proved to be only a burden to Keely and of no practical assistance in his research. Keely was not a businessman and the affairs of the company did not interest him. As a result the Keely Motor Company was eventually dissolved but not until its founders had exploited its stock for everything they could squeeze out of the company, leaving Keely holding the bag.
During the Keely Motor Company episode, Keely was sustained by a few close friends who understood and believed in the value of his research. Later, Clara Jessup Bloomfield Moore, a wealthy widow, came to Keely's rescue and supported his research until the end of his life. Mrs. Moore wrote the only contemporary biography of Keely and his discoveries.
Keely's discovery of the dissociation or aetheralization of water by using the ultrasonic frequency of 42,800 was a fantastic discovery just of itself; however, Keely was intent on discovering all the physics behind this phenomena. During his career, Keely used the basic discovery of converting water to pure energy to build many demonstrations utilizing that force to lift huge weights, control the force of gravity by making objects lighter or heavier, propel projectiles, and many others.
The water aetheralization effect was perfected by Keely to the point of being able to break down the atomic nucleus into 27 levels or gradations of finer and finer energies. This is akin to modern physics where they have found numerous subatomic particles which are the building blocks of the nuclear particles such as protons, electrons, and neutrons. Keely claimed that there were countless phenomena associated with each of these energy levels within the nucleus. Some of these included energies which governed how the brain and mind operated, how gravity was produced, and what the forces were that created electricity and magnetism.
Perhaps one of the most astounding demonstrations was Keely's ability to control the force of gravity. He could make substances either lighter to the point of levitation or make them heavier than their normal weight. As part of his control of gravitational forces, Keely demonstrated a working model of our solar system complete with a simulated sun and planets that was tuned to the actual forces which governed each planet and the sun. This model would even have the simulated sun and planets rotate about their axis and the planets orbit about the simulated sun. Keely controlled this operational solar system with sonic force in conjunction with the aetheric "vapor" released from the breakdown of water. This was demonstrated to Major Richarde Sever, an English scientist, in Keely's laboratory during the time of the World Centennial in the late 1890s.
Keely showed that all sympathetic streams of energy are composed of triple currents of vibratory flows. This applies to magnetic, electric, gravital, and brain/mind flows. These laws govern all mass from the innermost subdivision of the atom to the galaxies and universe itself. These flows radiate from suns and stars to planets on down the scale to the very core of the atoms. Since these flows are vibrational in nature and tuned to their respective spheres, Keely believed this was the basis for the term "music of the spheres" used in esoteric writings.
Verification of Keely's Discoveries
At this time there has been little done to verify Keely's overall thesis of sympathetic vibratory physics; however, the dissociation of water using sound vibration has been accomplished, albeit, as an accident in the laboratory. This was explained in great detail in my first book.
The basic experiment involved subjecting water in a quartz tube to ultrasonic frequencies as a test of sonic filtering techniques. The experimenter knew nothing of Keely's work.
John Ernst Worrel Keely (1827-1898) was one of the first in a line of research scientists during the past 100 years who discovered a mechanism to release large quantities of energy with a low energy trigger mechanism. Keely's discoveries hinged on the breakdown of water (and later, other substances) to create what Keely termed "etheric vapor" using specific, tuned, acoustic forces. This obviously fits the free energy definition of a small force (sound in this case) releasing enormous quantities of aetheric force with the source of the energy being matter. This was done in water with a base frequency that Keely asserted was 42,800 hz (cycles/second). Whether this frequency is accurate is open to debate since a small error in measuring the lower frequency would produce large errors in the higher harmonics and who knows what Keely used for a frequency standard.
Keely generated this ultrasonic frequency using lower frequencies in the audible sound octaves. Ultrasonic and higher frequencies can be produced by taking into account the fact that any vibrating object also produces harmonics of a fundamental tone. By judiciously combining various fundamentals at lower sonic frequencies, Keely could increase the amount of energy being pumped into the higher harmonics since the energy of the harmonics would add vectorially.
Duplication of Water Aetherialization
In 1965 an acquaintance of mine, a nuclear chemist who I shall call Dr. X, was doing experiments with ultrasonics. The setup is shown in Figure 2. The object of the experiment was to set up a standing wave in a column of water and force particulate suspensions in the water to collect at nodal points. The starting frequency for the experiment was 40,000 hz. The power amplifier was outputting approximately 600 watts into a specially built barium titanate transducer fitted to the bottom of a 2 inch quartz tube. When the system was started the water would heat and start boiling off, reducing the water column level in the tube and altering the standing wave conditions. To compensate for this a feedback loop was installed that kept the frequency adjusted so as to keep a standing wave in the column. Thus, the frequency slowly went up as the water level diminished.
At some frequency, a little above 41,300 hz, the water disappeared in the tube. There was no water found from the tube anywhere, it had completely disappeared. A clean hole was found in the ceiling directly above the tube. Further examination revealed that the hole also continued through the roof of the single story building. The conclusion of the chemist was that the water had been converted to pure nuclear energy. He decided that this was definitely not what he wanted to pursue, since conversion of water to pure energy was akin to creating a nuclear bomb, so the whole effort was dropped.
Many researchers cling to Keely's frequency of 42.8 Khz. It should be remembered that Keely derived his frequency from musical standards available in the 1800's and scaled up to what he thought was the harmonic he was using. Keely did NOT have any way to measure anything above normal auditory sound of 22 Khz. Dr. X's frequency of 41.3 Khz is based on a reading he took with modern calibrated instrumentation. Therefore, the real frequency is very likely somewhere around 41.3 Khz to 43 Khz. To think anything else would be speculative at best.
