Because the currents of the vortex of the earth are in constant change, the following results happen: In the regions where they overlap one another, and break to a limited extent, producing discord in motion, certain eddies and whirlpools result, and the corpor in solution is condensed, forming little planets or meteoric stones, varying in size from a pin‘s head to ten or twenty miles in diameter. When the little broken currents in the vortex lose their prey, these meteoric stones or little planets are carried by the vortexian current down to the earth‘s surface.
The belt in atmospherea where these things happen is usually about five or six or seven hundred miles up from the earth‘s surface. But the belt sometimes ascends a thousand miles. But at farther distances upward other belts exist; and others still beyond, and so on.
Another result that happens from these overlapping currents in the vortex (but closer to the earth) is the production of rain, snow and hail. Certain parts of the earth are given to snow; certain parts to rain and hail; and other parts to drought. In drought regions the vortexian overlappings descend to the very earth, where they are called by various names, such as cyclones, whirlwinds and so on; but if they occur on the ocean, carrying a current of water either up or down, they are termed waterspouts. In regions where there are rain, hail and snowfalls, the vortexian commotion takes place from half a mile to three miles above the earth‘s surface. Here the discord results in liberating the moisture, which was in transparent solution, and clouds result. But if the commotion continues, these are, atomically, still further liberated, and rain, snow, or hail results, which is carried down to the earth.
The places in the vortex of the earth where these discords result are nearly uniform in their relative distance from the earth, and their occurrences correspond to the prophetic periods previously given.
Refer to the Snowflakes image where a variety of representations of the forms and figures of snowflakes will be seen. But these are not all; there are billions of them, differing so much from one another that description is not possible. As previously stated, corpor being in solution in ethe, has mostly the shape of needles, but of such infinitesimal size that corporeal knowledge of them can only be, at most, subjective knowledge (indirect). But the patterns of snowflakes reveal both the casting and the mold of discordant m‘vortexian currents.
But it must be borne in mind that where one snowflake is molded in one moment, another snowflake molded in the same place the next moment, and so on, would display no two snowflakes alike. Three stages may be described in the discordant results: first, the cloud; second, the frozen cloud, which is snow; and third, the raindrop or hailstone.
In the meteoric regions (which are above the clouds that produce rain) corpor also presents three stages of development, which are: Ash-clouds, transparent or otherwise; and crystal needles; and meteoric stones. The latter only, as a general rule, are precipitated to the earth. But on certain occasions, both the other forms of corpor are also precipitated to the earth.
Allowing a certain size to rain clouds, which are near the earth, by contrast corporeal clouds high up in the vortex are proportionately larger: According to the ratio of the difference between their globular circumference and that of the lower strata, so are the discordant waves proportionally longer, wider and deeper.
It is an error to say that the atmosphere of the earth decreases gradually and continually in specific gravity according to the distance above the earth.
It is an error to say there is any gravity involved, but one may only say that some force precipitates formations like rain, snow, hail and meteoric stones. As already shown, these things (rain, snow, hail, etc.) have no gravity of their own to go in any direction. Nor is there any attraction in the earth to pull them down. They are driven to the earth by the vortexian current. [And it is this same current that holds the troposphere against the earth.] But the point now considered is the commonly expressed knowledge of men, that the atmosphere has less density outward, away from the earth, in proportion to the distance from the earth‘s surface. In one respect this is an error; in another a truth: As to density PER SE there is no difference in the atmosphere on the face of the earth compared to that of a thousand miles high, or a hundred thousand miles high. It is all in even balance, as to pressure and density, PER SE. But because the etheic solution of corpor is more sublimated by swifter axial motion in the higher regions (thus resulting in a more rarefied etheic solution and atmosphere at that place), and because the lower regions contain less perfectly dissolved corpor, the difference has been improperly described. Air is no heavier because of rain; the weight lies in the rain only.
Therefore the gravity (so-called) of the atmosphere refers only to imperfect solutions of corpor. And it is true that a superabundance of these imperfect solutions are near the earth.
At sea level, a certain pressure seems to manifest, as in a barometer; on a high mountain a less pressure seems to manifest. There is also a variation in the barometer according to certain conditions of the atmosphere [high and low pressure areas, as meteorologists use the terms]. The difference is not that the pressure of the atmosphere is different; the pressure of the atmosphere, PER SE, is the same in all directions, high and low. The cause of the variation of the barometer is in reference to distension (sublimated solution of corpor), and has no reference to pressure as such. This capacity to distend is not only external to the barometer, but within it also; so that as a measure of atmospheric pressure PER SE it is entirely worthless. The suction pump, or inverted tube filled with water, shows the pressure of the atmosphere upward as well as downward, and shows what the pressure is.
From which it is shown there is no such thing as attraction of gravitation of the atmosphere toward the earth more than away from it. Where the atmosphere is overcharged with an imperfect solution of corpor, snow, or rain, that excess is that which balances toward the earth. But this also only applies in regions close to the earth‘s surface. For, fifty or a hundred thousand miles up from the earth, the axial velocity of the vortex is so great that rain or snow would instantly be dissolved, distended and lost to sight. Consequently the solutions in the higher atmosphere contain not only moisture, but they contain sublimated iron, lead, zinc, gold, platinum, clay, granite, diamonds and all other things known to exist on the earth, and many other things besides.
In the early age of the vortex of the earth, the outer rim flew so swiftly that border eddies ensued, from which nebula congregated, until the earth had a nebulous belt around it. This belt, in time, losing pace with the earth‘s vortex, condensed and made the moon.
But to return to the snowflake, and to the needles of corpor while in the etheic solutions: On a cloudy day these solutions or needles are more or less transverse to the vortexian lines. During a clear day the needles are linear to the earth, and this is the reason it is a clear day. The latter direction of the needles may be called direct, and the former indirect. Where they are direct, and fall on a photo-plate [photographic film or photovoltaic (solar) cell], the force of their blows is called actinic force, and it is the same as where they fall on the wet linen in the bleachman‘s field. In this actinic blow a weak electric flame is produced by each needle, which is the bleaching power, and also the power to blister an exposed skin, which has been kept for years in the dark (negative).
If a solution of transparent iron, or of quinine, or other recipient of negative electricity, is sprinkled on the cloth, the actinic ray will not result in the electric spark, and no bleaching effect will be produced; and even, sometimes, on the contrary, a black spot will result.
Wherever the vortexian current falls, corpor is more or less damaged or dissolved, or changed in its combinations. On a piece of freshly broken iron, it produces rust. Because the vortexian solution contained oxygen, this effect has been called oxidation. Nevertheless, in point of fact, oxygen of itself is inert: The break of its needles liberates vortexya, which results in a minor discharge, a larger representation of which is seen in the discharge of an electric spark from the pole of a battery.
As previously stated, the vortexian currents are to the earth in the daylight; and from the earth in the night; although their force is toward the center of the earth and toward the north pole afterward. The following result happens: Take a pool of water, for example; it is charged during the day with the positive current, but during the night the negative current escapes upward from the water. The resulting decomposition is called se‘mu, a mucilaginous substance that floats on the surface of the water. In a few days this se‘mu, by motion, assumes certain defined shapes, crystalline, fibrous and otherwise, like the strange configurations of frost on a windowpane. A few days after this, if the se‘mu [green scum] is examined with a magnifying lens, it will be discovered that here are miniature trees, even forests, with vines and grasses. No seed was there.
This new property is called LIFE, and because it exists everywhere it is called OMNIPRESENT. Man can account for the se‘mu; for the positive and negative forces; for corpor and for ethe; but Life is unfathomable by man. If the se‘mu floats against the ground, its infinitesimal trees, vines and grasses, take root and grow, and live a season and die; but from their roots and seeds a larger growth succeeds. In that way, the whole world becomes inhabited with living creatures. Nevertheless not one of them merges into another; but every one brings forth after its own kind.
Man inquires of the earth, the rocks, the air, and of all things: Who is this Life? This Omnipresent, quickening into life all the living? But none can answer him. Then man inquires of LIFE: Who are You, O Life? And the answer comes to the soul of man: I AM LIFE! I AM THE I AM! I AM THE EVER PRESENT! All that you see in earth or heaven, and even the unseen worlds also, are My very Person! I am the Whole!
