The two secondaries strike me as L-C circuits (there's no capacitor in the diagram - the missing component?). The cross polarity enables them to fire 180 degrees out of phase. When the cap on one side discharges in the positive phase, the other secondary draws in charge from the aether, then the converse takes place. It strikes me as essentially a ping-pong type of circuit - not a closed system, but one that is open to ambient charge.
The bifilar primary would prevent secondary reflection from the pickup coil.
I suspect diodes might also be needed between the secondaries and primary.
