Having considered the mathematical operation of the unit vector del on the vector aspect of spin to obtain the divergence and curl, and having seen the significance of these operations, let us next look at the effect or consequence of the operation of del on the scalar aspect of spin. It is at once apparent that this will yield a gradient of spin and to this we must attach meaning.

We have seen the scalar aspect of spin to be the parent quantity from which our time is derived. The gradient of this quantity is therefore the rate of change over time over the incremental distance considered and in the direction decreed by the unit vector del. In writing this out we have

G = dt / dx + dt / dy + dt / dx = dt / ds

where t is the tempic field and s the distance in the direction of del. Inverting this equation, we have

1 / G = ds / dt

which we recognize immediately to be a velocity.

Of course we will at once ask the question, if this gradient is the reciprocal of a velocity, what is going where? The answer is that one spin center in the universe would be unstable and at once expand to infinity, but within the structure of our matter, the arrangement is such that these gradients precisely cancel each other out and stable matter results. This property the gives us the clue for the manner in which our matter is built up, and in effect is responsible for the ponderable nature of matter

It is interesting to note the relationship defining momentum, mass times velocity, which is, of course, mass divided by the spin gradient. Or, we can define mass as the product of the ponderability of matter and the spin gradient that produced it. Much more will be said about these and other relationships later.
