- n. A concomitant or sympathetic vibration.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
When you fall into the ecstatic grip of a n|om hug, the amplified co-vibration can get into your spine.
The exact manner in which this co-vibration takes place, and what reaction it has on the processes in the ether, could be investigated with the aid of the well-known laws of electromagnetism.
The explanation of the chemical and heating action of light was sought in this transmission of motion, and a theory of colour dispersion had been based on the hypothesis that transparent substances, such as glass and water, also contained particles which were set into co-vibration under the influence of a beam of light.
