The late great Nikola Tesla—the Serbian-American inventor and electrical engineer–best known for discovering alternating electric current and lighting up our world was quoted as saying:

*“**If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”*

**― Nikola Tesla**

What Tesla is referring to are the properties of energy and their associated behaviors.

To understand energy and associated behaviors it is first necessary to understand the meaning of the term’s vibration, frequency and resonance.

Physicist tells us that at the atomic and sub-atomic level everything is in motion and wherever there is motion there is vibration. In other words, everything in the universe is in a constant state of vibration.

Vibration is typically described as a periodic or cyclic motion between two extremes around a mid-point. What this seems to imply is that all motion is circular which is not totally accurate because, according to Kepler, there are no perfectly round circles in space–only ellipses of varying eccentricities.

The important difference between circular orbits and elliptic orbits is the construction of their orbital diameters. When circular orbits are divided by Pi the result is the length of their orbital diameters (which is precisely two times the orbit’s radius). With an ellipse, however, the orbital diameter is replaced with the line of apsides (below).

The line of apsides is composed of two axes of differing lengths. One axis is the distance from the center of rotation to the orbit’s aphelion and the other axes is the distance from the center of rotation to the orbit’s parhelion. Those two components cause two opposing fields or waves to be created (see below). The variance in length of the two axies is what defines the synodic period (the number of rotations necessary to evenly distribute the variance and return to the point of equilibrium). Newton’s theorem of revolving orbits describes this phenomenon as apsidal or orbital precession.

**Rotation generated sinewaves**

**Fast, Slow and Mean **

The above simulation shows how the shorter axis generates a smaller circle rotating closer to the center of rotation at a higher rate of velocity. As this faster rotating wave begins to overtake the slower wave the physical distance between the waves contract. Once the faster wave passes the slower wave, the physical distance between the waves expand. This expansion and contraction create a pattern of vibrational frequency between the two components. Frequency is the number of oscillations (or cycles) occurring in a period of one-second.

*The orbital frequency of planets is measured in the number of kilometers (or miles) traveled per-second. Saturn, for example, orbits at 6-miles per-second. *

The chart below illustrates how the 360-degrees associated with circles or cycles are carried forward to the waveform created by the spiraling motion and serves to identify extreme points reached by the wave (90-270) as well as its mid-point (180 degrees). The scale on the left-hand side is divided into opposite polarities (+ /- values) which measures the wave’s strength (amplitude) as it progresses.

**Everything that vibrates resonates at a frequency based on the configuration of energy that holds the matter together.**

A tuning fork is a good example of the precise configuration of matter to achieve a specific sound. A wind chime is also an example of the same material, at different lengths, each having its own unique fundamental frequency and sound. **Orbiting planets also have their own unique fundamental frequencies.**

Harmonics are simply multiples of a fundamental frequency. The examples below show the wave patterns of progressively higher harmonic frequencies.

The frequencies of the sinewaves in the above illustration represent the “synodic mean” of the two opposing waveforms that are generated by an ellipse in motion.

**Newton’s 3rd. Law of Motion:**

**” To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction”. **

His theorem of revolving orbits was his first attempt to explain the concept of apsidal precession; i.e. (the synodic interaction of two opposing particles). Both are influenced by two opposing forces–gravity and magnetic radiation. As one component falls under the influence of one force, the other component falls under the influence of the other force. The result is dual curvature.

Both gravitation and radiation have their own systems of curvature and each is opposed to the other for their purposes are directly opposed.

The curvature of gravitation, for example, is centripetal and is controlled by the north-south magnetic poles. Its purpose is to extend bodies in motion from their wave axes to their wave amplitudes. The curvature of radiation, on the other hand, is centrifugal and controlled by the east-west equatorial axes.

Between those two opposing forces or waves is a plane of zero curvature which bounds the wave fields and insulates the effect of one wave from the other based on the principle of opposing polarities (below).

Gravitation and radiation (magnetic) fields are generated as apsidal precession gradually rotates the line joining the apsides of an ellipse.

In the following set of examples, the ellipse shape defined as Kepler (A) marks the point of equilibrium. As the orbit progresses Kepler (A) opens into what appears to be two ellipses as shown in Kepler (B). As the orbiting continues the line of apsides appears to shrink–forming a cavity resembling the shape of a Vesica-Pisces (Kepler (C)). Naturally, the lines presented in these examples are invisible fields of force like the atmospheric bubble surrounding Earth. We can’t see it, but we know it’s there.

Orbital precession works like the winding of a clock; the spring is wound centripetally (transferring energy potential to the spring). Then, the process reverses and centrifugal motion turns the potential energy into kinetic energy as the spring unwinds. The number of times that a clock winds and unwinds is governed synodically.

**Apsidal Motion**

Physicist tell us “that Atomic particles, in free form; i.e. (not bound into an atom) carry an electric charge and, when those charged particles are put into motion, an electric current flow produces a force field around itself as it flows.” Force fields manifest themselves in sine-waves as a result of sympathetic vibrations taking place within apsidal cavities (see regions A & B below).

Trapped charge is contained in apsidal cavities by the polarity differential of the two opposing fields. In the above example, free charge is trapped between line-1 and base-0 (the line of apsides which has zero curvature). And because like charges repel, all movements towards line-1 are repelled back towards base-0, which are then repelled back towards line-1 and so on and so on. The resulting vibrational frequencies shown as green lines are based on the fluctuating distance between line-1 and base-0 and its opposite, line-2 and base-0.

As the cycle progresses the charge; i.e. (green vertical lines) is compressed into a smaller and smaller area as the distance between Line-1 and base-0 contracts. That causes faster and faster vibrations at higher and higher frequencies. At the moment of convergence both regions disappear and, then, reappear as regions of the opposite polarity.

**Where do the trapped charges go? **

The faster and faster vibrations generated during the convergence phase can cause a, theoretically, infinite rise in frequency. The point of convergence is the “Omega Point” of greatest energetic intensity–where mathematical singularities are thought to form in energy fields—releasing a sudden burst of current across the point of convergence and allowing the trapped charge to flow to the other side.

What is being described here is a process where low potential accumulates into high potential by generating high amperage of low voltage pressure into low amperage of high voltage pressure. This is all that Nature does to perform work, whether to create a storm or a solar system.

**Apsidal Precession**

Apsidal precession exists at every scale. Planets, suns, solar systems, electrons, protons and atomic systems are the familiar results of this force which gathers energy into smaller volumes of dense masses. “*All that is required is an ellipse in motion*“.

The term, apsidal precession, is familiar to astronomers. But, because of the relatively small eccentricities in planetary orbits, Newton’s theorem of revolving orbits is basically ignored. Doing so, however, may be of no small consequence. Planet Earth, for example, has an apsidal precession period of about 14.95-years. That produces a wave structure with 4-maximum amplitude peaks or 1-maximum amplitude peak every 3.7375 years which is suspiciously close to the El Niño-La Niña effect.
