Behaviour of whole systems unpredicted by the sum of the parts.

Life (Redux)

I have recently discovered  a new tool for modeling.

After many years of seeking an easy way to translate between 90° Cartesian coordinates and 60° coordinates of nature, Google has made available SketchUp a free, three-dimensional modeling package that is really quite good. I used 3D studio Max for many years and switched to POV-Ray for reasonable results without having to pay thousands of dollars for licensing.

While SketchUp has a Pro version, I find the free version more than adequate. That being said, I will probably upgrade to Pro take full advantage.

SketchUp 2017 is available for free download. I used it to develop the above models in a relatively short time. The ability to translate an object in a very intuitive fashion makes conversion to 60° coordinates relatively simple. As you can see, I have only begun to scratch the surface and I find that the use of “components”, which then can be used within other components, a wonderful tool.

SketchUp is also available as a viewer. Let me know if there’s any interest in having my models available.

I see some excellent opportunities for educational models. I hope to stay very active in this as I see it as a great opportunity to finally model some of the key concepts that Fuller puts before us.

Distraction Eterna

Central Oscillator
I have taken a sidetrack which has turned into a fascinating addition to the material presented here.

The distraction is called Eterna and came about because of my interest in Genetically Modified Organisms. Here in Costa Rica outfits like Monsanto have stirred up a shitstorm of controversy by genetically modifying organisms and then patenting the genetic coding and charging for its use. The most talked about campaign has been surrounding Round-up Ready seeds. This means that the farmer can buy seeds that yield a plant which is resistant to the chemical herbicide Round-up. In terms of dollars the farmer can spray his entire field for a fraction of what it would cost to hand weed. However, not only may it change the basic chemical structure of the fruit, it encourages the use of Round-up which further encourages the use of ever stronger herbicides. The “down-stream” effects of such chemicals needs a lot more study.

That being said, there is also a tremendous amount of good which will come of this. For the moment, let’s remove a profit motive from this equation. No rush to hit an investment deadline, no need to payback investors. Nothing released without thorough testing. What if we could “see” the gene sequence that “turns on” cancer cells and what if we could “turn it off”, no effect on any other part of the sequence. It is becoming increasingly obvious that we are there.

Now, while going down this Rabbit Hole which is Eterna, I am seeing every principle set out in this, my own work, being confirmed by the very actions of nature. Through my intro to molecular biology I am seeing some very clear comparisons. The nucleotides pair in very predictable ways while allowing for tremendous freedom. No irrational numbers, no Pi, all basic Synergetics at it’s best. Stay tuned!

Synergetic Modeling System

A view of the 4 Dimensional Synergetic Modeling system


What we are proposing here is a new 4 Dimensional modelling system to replace the outdated and provably erroneous 3 Dimensional system of mensuration. I was hoping to develop a physical toy and may yet do so but, for now I can produce the parts much more efficiently via computer. For reference I am using a free program called POV-ray, which I have found most enlightening. The first interesting feature is that it is all text based! The shapes, colors and textures are all quantizied and yet, as a sculptor I have found nothing, that I can imagine, that I can’t do in POV-ray. I can’t say that in any other medium.


In this image we are at the atomic level. We start looking in the “top” of an atom. The electron cloud looks much like a doughnut with the Zero Point Field Energy flowing from the electron cloud into the proton or nucleus. As we pull out we get a better view of the cloud from the “front.” We are exhibiting several additional concepts here. Polarity. Biefield-Brown Effect, torsion waves. In future images we will have a look at the relation of these atomic structures to Sacred Geometry.

Time


I have been having some overlap in fields while thinking about the nature of time. Time gives us some of the more interesting paradoxes in Western Science; The Twin Paradox, Time Dilation, Instantaneity. Once again I would like you to consider the possibility that we adhere so tightly to our “beliefs” that it blocks us from seeing the obvious.


Let me point out a few of these beliefs:

  • We believe that speed is measured relative to an “at rest” state which doesn’t exist in nature. Everything vibrates.
  • We believe that the Universe is divided into a 3 dimensional coordinate system that nature uses. 
  • Einstein has shown, among other things; that the speed of light appears to be a constant,
  • some events in the physical world appear to occur instantaneously over great distances,
  • time appears to be an illusion of mind, relative and different for each individual.

These give some insurmountable problems when trying to deal with the concept of time. Let’s try a different point of view.

Let’s start by realizing that everything vibrates at some subdivision of the speed of light (c) which appears to us to be a constant. This is Eternity. When we can traverse the Universe in an instant we experience Eternity. Let’s see this once again as the aether. This was part of what Einstein was trying to resolve with the idea of “hidden variables”. How does one resolve instantaneous action with the concept of time and the concept of the speed of light being a constant and insurmountable.

In order to truly be able to get a grasp on Kozyrev’s work and related findings, certain new analogies for physical matter are required. Rigorously, Kozyrev’s work forces us to visualize all physical objects of matter in the Universe as if they were sponges that are submerged in water.


In all of these analogies, we should consider the sponges as having remained in water for a long enough period of time that they are completely saturated. Bearing this in mind, there are two things we can do with such sponges underwater: we can decrease the volume of water that they contain or increase it, by very simple mechanical procedures.


1.Decrease: If a submerged, saturated sponge is squeezed, cooled or rotated, then some of the water inside of it will be released into its surroundings, decreasing its mass. Once the sponge is no longer disturbed, the pressure on the millions of tiny pores is relieved, causing it to again absorb water and expand back to its normal resting mass.


2.Increase: We can also pump more water pressure into the sponge in its rest state, such as by heating (vibrating) it, thus causing some of the pores to expand with more water than they can comfortably hold. In this case, once we relieve the added pressure, the sponge will naturally release its excess water and shrink back down to its normal resting mass.


Though it would seem impossible to most people, Kozyrev showed that by shaking, spinning, heating, cooling, vibrating or breaking physical objects, their weight can be increased or decreased by subtle but definite amounts. And this is but one aspect of his amazing work.


Please note, at this point we don’t have to concern ourselves with the validity of the above stated model. We are merely testing it as a hypothesis and it will either work or not.

Vector Equilibrium


I have been making physical and cyber models of some of the basic Synergetic Principles in anticipation of using them in an upcoming seminar. I have decided to post them here as I complete and animate them. I’ll give a brief description of what we are looking at with some possibilities.

This model is a 3 frequency Vector Equilibrium [FULL ANIMATION] and is the root of much of synergetics. We are not showing the vectors here, only the spheres, and, for demonstration purposes, they are half the unit radius. As the object rotates about the Y axis we can see many variations in alignment and symmetry. I suspect this is typical of many of the “particles” we are dealing with. As it rotates it may appear very differently depending on one’s POV. This also contributes to the Heisenberg Principle in that it is virtually impossible to locate the exact center in the midst of the spin. Remember we are talking about trying to lock an unknown, unseen object in space and time as layers of other “particles” whiz around it. Like trying to see where the end of a fan blade is.

The 3 frequency is significant as it represents the upper limit of unique sphere nestings. The outer layer of 92 gives us the number of unique, regenerative elements. The total number of spheres is 238, the atomic number of Uranium, the heaviest of the elements. We’ll go into this in another post.

Greatest Educational Tool Ever…Q-Tips!


I have stated before on this blog that I am a model builder, first and foremost. Ever since first getting involved with Synergetics in the 70’s I have been looking for the best way to construct models within the format of the Isotropic Vector Matrix, the “shape” of the Universe, the Higgs Field, the Aether. Several years ago I found a Christmas toy that was available at my local Walgreen’s Drug Store called under various brands with varying levels of quality Geo-Mags, or Mag-Stix or the like. It consisted of a construction set like Legos or Tinker Toys. It was a number of steel balls about 1/2″ in diameter and plastic pieces about 1 1/2″ long with a small, flat magnet at each end. 12 sticks fit nicely around one ball. Worked great for Synergetic modelling and I made a few art projects using them until some safety board realized that if your 3 year old ate one of these sticks, and the magnets came out, they could attract with each other from different sections of the intestine and F things up pretty good. So, they were taken off the shelves. I was bummed, what could I use instead? Now keep in mind the costliest of these would cost like $25 for 100 pieces…I typically use 5-10K pieces in a construction. The trouble with the cheaper ones was the lack of consistency in the length of the pieces. Sometimes I got to the end of a piece and just couldn’t get the surfaces flat (I’ll explain that later). Then I saw a video about Frank Chester, who spoke at Rhode Island School of Design, it’s on U-tube. He uses Q-tips and rubber cement. Brilliant! Not sure if it’s his idea but it sure works well. As a matter of fact, I am not exaggerating when I say this may be the greatest educational toy ever.

Dodecahedron and 4-Frequency Tetrahedron


The Q-tips are uniform length, cheap (100 cost $.25 here in Costa Rica)  and available in color. I can get a half liter of silicon liquido for $4 at any libreria. The real beauty ( as if this wasn’t enough) is in the adjustability of the Q-tips. When the cement is slightly dry it tacks nicely making it easy to piece together tetrahedra and assemble and connect them on the fly. I generally work on 15-20 Q-tips at a time and, when I have them partly assembled, can go point-to-point adjusting the position of the end points. At first, I thought this just a convenience in making the models but, something quickly manifested the true purpose of this “toy.” As I assembled the first big piece I could feel the structure tighten up as I added the layers of Q-tips. As a layer would get completed I would go back over the entire layer and tweek each point. Invariably, when I got all the way around., all of the slight deviations could be balanced out, all the faces could be flattened by placing the face on the work table and gently pressing down a multiple points on the piece. Since the glue wasn’t completely dry, and was flexible even then, final adjusting was a breeze.

How is this educational? Well, if Synergetics is the underlying geometry of the Universe, as we are contending, what better way to see how it works than by playing with it? Not only do we get a hands-on experience of the structural integrity that Synergetics offers but, we also get to see the sheer diversity offered by Synergetic Modelling. Numerous principles of physics, chemistry, biology can be modelled this way as can marketing, social interaction, geo-political forces.

I am currently working on several sets of models, for an upcoming seminar I am putting together, as well as a video/book with some suggestions and graphics showing where I have gone with this.


If I had any money I would buy Q-tip stock!

Pieces of a Dream


I had two, seemingly random thoughts the past few hours. Rather than overanalyze them, as usual, I thought I would post them and see if anyone else gets anything out of them.

1. I was thinking about Phi and the Golden Mean and Synergetics and looking at a tree limb. The cell growth by division must stay balanced between the length of the limb and the diameter. As the tree grows the cells are developing in the diameter of the limb and in the length at the same time. Could it be that the interaction and attraction between these cells, within the synergetic format, generate Phi and the Fibbonacci numbers?

2. I heard today that one language expert hypothesized that music was an accident of evolution that came along with language. I think there is more to it than that. Another neurologist points out that music releases the same bonding enzymes in the brain as an orgasm. He hypothesizes that music evolved as a necessary aggression suppressant in humans, the only mammal on the planet which accommodates more than 18 or so males within the tribe.

How about considering that it is the “tunability” of the synergetic format which allows certain frequencies to resonate harmonically? Everything is vibrating but we may select which frequencies we (consciousness) react to and how we react. It’s right there in the numbers and, it appears to be universal.

Forward

As the 21st century dawns, we find ourselves on the brink of what may be mankind’s greatest challenge. Can we, as a species, use the tools we have at our disposal to continue to survive, if not thrive?


In the broad spectrum of information we have available, the data can be interpreted in many ways. On one end of the spectrum we can envision shortages leading to conflicts which, if left unresolved, may continue to spread and escalate to a point of no return which could lead to extinction. Another extreme could have us using technology at our disposal in an environmentally responsible manner while providing humanity with wealth and abundance unthinkable at the moment. While there is also an entire range of choices in-between, I can’t help but believe that the extremes presented are the true choice.

In this work I would like to examine the choices available to us in such a way as to enable each of us to understand that there are, indeed, choices and that each of us has the opportunity to participate in our own evolution in a very real and tangible way.

I would like to state at the outset that all of the ideas presented here are the direct result of my having studied the works of Richard Buckminster Fuller over the past 30 years.

We owe him a lot.

Spherical derivation of VE


I’ve been working with vector based structures for a while and ran across this model of the closest packed spheres which comprise a 2-frequency Vector Equilibrium. Remember the frequency is the number of spaces between the spheres in an edge, not the number of spheres.


I would like the viewer to remember that the vector based model below (a 1-frequency VE) is based on this spherical packing, the vectors connecting the centers of the spheres. This represents an “at-rest” or “zero-point” which is only passed through for an instant of the cycle of frequency which, we now know, pervades everything. Let’s call this a model of the Higgs Boson.

The 4 dimensions of Syneretics are represented by the pairs of triangular openings in the VE

A=440 vs A=432 Leads to a Challenge

I have just had a friend recommend an article he read on the significance of Standard Tuning of A440 HZ or A432 HZ and the ramifications of this fact. He and I are both musicians but the implication of the article is that this 8 HZ difference represents far more than musical inclinations. From this site you can get to all sorts of discussions and controversies: Rothschild’s, Illuminati, enslavement.

This got me to the field of Cymatics and some spectacular patterns generated by sound vibrations. It also got me to a really interesting conspiracy theory basically claiming that The Pope and Hitler had tried to shift standard tuning from 432 HZ, which, they (the conspirators) claim had always been used for 2000 years because; they had discovered that this shift in frequency was what caused people to be more inclined to fight and disagree, to generate aggression. Kind of like when you are running out of your favorite <fill-in-the-blank> .

A lot of these sites basically took some very interesting and verifiable facts and combined them in some interesting ways to then generate some pretty fantastic conclusions supposedly based on these facts. Then I realized this is really what happens with every conspiracy theory. Start with an idea, preferably outrageous, and take a few facts, kludge them together and BINGO “Theory Proved.”

Now, fact checking is a bitch; someone makes a statement, maybe they reference it, maybe they don’t. Do you believe them? Here’s what I usually do. The first statement I don’t already know something about, I look up (in what I believe are reliable sources) to get some background. Then I continue with the article. If the conspirator makes a statement and I can confirm it easily I continue. After a number of these fact checks prove verifiable I can ease off and continue the article leaving out the fact checking. However, if I am going to put that article up or quote it, I really should check all of the significant statements. As Arthur C. Clark said, “If you allow me to pick and choose which facts I can use, I can prove anything.”

Unfortunately, when I applied this standard reference practice most of the conspiracy stuff just went away. The first 5 facts I looked into were just plain false. Why weren’t the great cathedral  organs tuned to 432? Why were the tuning forks of Haydn (415) and Bach (422) NOT tuned to 432? Why wouldn’t the ear cochlea adjust, over growth, to adapt to its environment? Why wouldn’t any orchestra use the tuning to lure customers back to their superior feeling music? Why aren’t we all crazy? Well, let’s hold on that one, the jury’s still out. More significantly, where is the hard evidence? Give me something. Take 2 rooms full of 6 yr olds and expose one to a 440 tone and the other to a 432? Try it for a while then switch tones. This ain’t rocket science but I think it falls squarely in the scientific method. Expose someone to 432 HZ while doing an MRI and then to 440 HZ. We can see all sorts of things. Where’s the evidence?

It’s a pain in the ass but, ya gotta do it. “But what does this have to do with Synergetics?”, you might ask? Just this:

I contend Synergetics gives us a way to simplify the entire fact checking process by not having to keep proving the same shit over and over again, which is exactly what we are doing. Take some facts, put them together based on preconceived notions and jump to a totally irrelevant conclusion. It may be hardwired in, which is why I try to stick to a pretty strict interpretation of the Scientific Method.

Here’s how it works:

I want to take this entire idea that there is a true significance to the difference between A440 HZ and A432 HZ and see if we can’t make sense of it. But, rather than start with the conclusion (the Pope and the Hitler had discovered something about that frequency ) and seeking facts to support what this discovery must be, let’s see if we can’t come up with a much simpler and clearer explanation for facts we are being shown. I suspect this may take a while but, I think, if we can make it work, it will be self confirming. Furthermore, we hope to demonstrate that these same facts may be recombined to explain any number of phenomena. Sacred Geometry, Holistic Medicine, Psychology, Market fluctuations, Chemistry, Physics, Languages are the ones I have looked at so far and all seem to work nicely within the network provided us by Synergetics. Not giving us predictions, but allowing us to understand what variables are truly important to the area we are exploring and giving more reliable predictability, while allowing for true freedom. In addition, it gives us several additional variables we didn’t even know we had!

The real beauty is that it is a very small set of facts. We shall refer to these as “generalized principles”, which must work everywhere and everywhen to be even considered facts and, once gotten, become the basis of any other area of the Universe we would like to explore. This is how a hologram works, this is how we apply the concept of holons and it all works together.

Sorry, no pictures yet but I am working on the models.

Stay tuned! I want to examine the work of Nassim Haramein and Frank Chester at the Rhode Island School of Design, both of whom have some very good ideas but abuse the application of their “so-called” discoveries.
