A Quote by Alexander Lowen on crying, stress, tension, release, and body

Crying, that is, sobbing is the earliest and deepest way to release tension. Infants can cry almost from the moment of birth, and do so easily following every stress that produces a state of tension in the body... Human beings are the only creatures who can react in this way to stress and tension. Most probably, they are the only ones who need this form of release.

A Quote by Walter Russell on electricity, tension, mind, think, know, interaction, desire, and matter

Electricity is the strain or tension set up by the two opposing desires
of universal Mind thinking: the desire for balanced action and the
desire for rest.

This electric universe is a complexity of strains caused by the
interaction of these two opposing, interchanging electric desires.

All matter is electric. All matter is conditioned into greater or
lesser strains according to the intensity of desire which is the cause
of all electric strain to which it is subjected.

The farther removed from rest, the greater the strain or tension. That
which we call high electric potential is merely great strain to
maintain a condition which is far from the condition of rest.

The familiar return ball with which a child plays is a good example of
electric strain. When the ball is thrown from the hand, the elastic
gradually tightens to increase the tension of resistance to strain
generated in the elastic. The strain continues to intensify until the
ball comes to rest. When the ball returns, the strain gradually lessens
until the ball again comes to rest in the child’s hand. When that
happens, the strain and tension have been voided. Tension has not
BECOME rest; it has ceased to be.

This whole electric universe is a complex maze of similar tensions.
Every particle of matter in the universe is separated from its
condition of oneness, just as the return ball is separated from the
hand, and each is connected with the other one by an electric thread of
light which measures the tension of that separateness.

Walter Russell

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on human, tension, being, division, illusion, and unity

The human being taken in his profound reality as well as in his great tension of becoming is a divided being, a being which divides again, having permitted himself the illusion of unity for barely an instant. He divides and then reunites.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)

A Quote by Thomas Moore on tension and symbols

More profoundly, though, a symbol is the act of throwing together two incongruous things and living in the tension that exists between them, watching the images that emerge from that tension.

Thomas Moore (1779 - 1852)
