Blake had had a similar insight in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: "Without Contraries is no progression" (Blake 1979: 149); and in Milton, where he intuited the utility of the clockwork metaphor to explain the universal dynamics (27: 8-10), and where he asserted that all of reality is vorticular in nature (15: 21-35), so all the wheels in the clockwork are vortices:
It is indeed remarkable that this condition of the universe as described above by Melville and Blake (the vorticular clockwork) resembles Haramein's worldview (2011, 2012, 2013), in which it is shown that gravity is not simply a warping-curving of space (as shown by Einstein) and light does not simply move up and down in a sinusoidal flat plane: the curving of gravity and the sinusoidal movement of light (and all the other electromagnetic waves) are accompanied also by a torque, i.
