VRML

I was heavily involved in VRML back before the turn-of-the-century. We attended SIGGRAPH in LA, New Orleans and New York. We manned a booth at the LA SIGGRAPH. That’s how I found out that my last several years work had been stolen by SGI Cosmo, a major player in three-dimensional computer graphics.

But around the year 2000, I decided that three-dimensional computer graphics was just not developed enough to maintain my interest. Almost 20 years ago. I’ve been involved in computer graphics since but not actual three-dimensional worlds.

I had seen Second Life© early in 2000 and thought it was pretty good but I wasn’t really impressed. Especially since all the avatars look like twentysomethings with cool hair and perfect bodies. I wanted somewhere where I could look like me. Well, now I’m impressed!

Several months ago I was introduced to SketchUp, the free Google program for three dimensional graphics and I loved it! For not so obvious reasons, it was one of the first 3D programs where I could work comfortably with the 60° coordinate system advocated by Bucky Fuller. Additionally, the possibility of having several people accessing the same workplace and be able to communicate in a virtual environment is especially appealing. This led me to Second Life.

I thought, “Wouldn’t it be great to export the models I had done in SketchUp into Second Life?” On further investigation I found several sites with instructions on how to do just that. The real kicker though is that it may be easier and faster to do directly in Second Life! It’s a balance between complexity in the virtual environment and mobility restricted by bandwidth.

I am using a Dell XLS 18 with the Intel HD 4000 video that appears to be working fine. The detail I’m able to get far surpasses anything I could’ve imagined… No, let me take that back. It is exactly what I imagined! The ability to interact with the environment and other avatars in real time with very high level of realism.

Of course, my first task was to see if I could create an avatar that looks like me. I’ll let you be the judge. The amount of control I have over my appearance is amazing. The facial expression, the gestures and the ability, as the owner, to change the environment.

I find it also quite therapeutic to be able to have my avatar get out on the dance floor and dance like I never could in real life. It provides a level of social interaction I just don’t have any more. I don’t want to go out to eat with people, I don’t want to travel with anyone unless it’s absolutely essential. Too many things can go wrong and there is very little upside. I’m not looking for girlfriend.

So now I need to tie consciousnesscreatesmatter.com with tetraplegiacr.com and Second Life© and see if we can’t get something interesting going.

Wavelinearity


This post is a bit of an experiment so please bear with me. What I am trying to show is that there are many different ways to see the same evidence. In the following series of images we have several different ways to visualize a sine wave. Let’s have a look at wavelinearity. Now, this phenomenon is much of the basis of western science and is invoked in various contexts from electronics and sound to metaphysics.

The changing images below all describe the same sine wave structure. Interestingly, in envisioning it as a 2 dimensional wave requires an up/down on/off change of direction as part of the represented cycle and works well with the concept of limits and higher mathematical functions. Not so if we view it as a rotation about a common axis, then it appears more related to angular momentum and is more easily described with relatively few mathematical gyrations.

 

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.

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.

VE


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!

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.

Half spin

Now this entire idea of half spins gave me some trouble in my first forays into visualizing sub-atomic particles. What does a half spin look like?

Turns out you can do some nice approximations of the concept using our 60 degree Synergetic System. The image above has been left unlabeled because we haven’t really gotten that far yet, but let’s notice the similarities between the UUD UDD configuration of the Standard Model with the legs of the half tetrahedron which Fuller relates to the action-reaction-resultant which occurs in any particle interaction. We know that these and all other particles obey the generalized principles of Newton’s Law’s and we can see the vectors indicated by the red and blue lines as vectors and we can also see that when they combine in a certain way they can form a tetrahedron. The minimum system in Universe. the minimum division between inside and outside. Could it make a nice model for an atom (hydrogen) which is the most plentiful, smallest, and most easily combining element in Universe? It ‘s found everywhere. With me, so far?

So, we can see some similarities but we aren’t ready to start equating symbols to particles without seeing how this geometric twist works helping us visualize just what is going on.
Let’s see if we can make any further connections.

Infinity

I would like to state that, at this point, I don’t believe in the concept of “infinity”. The idea that anything goes on forever; time or direction wise doesn’t compute with me. That should make it obvious that I don’t believe that the Universe is infinite. I think most modern physicists ascribe to this view also. Unless, of course, one wants to equate “infinite” with “God” and basically other incomprehensible concepts.

Our very definitions of point, line, area, volume, as examples of 0, 1, 2 and 3 dimensional concepts, just don’t exist, even conceptually. Can you perceive of a one sided plane surface? We throw in the idea of infinity as an axiom to be taken as stated, much as the idea of 3 dimensions is taken as axiomatic rather than as the misconstrued standard that it has proven to be. None of these things works consistently, or conceptually.

What we have, at the base line are, location, direction (angle) and vector (the length and direction from one point to another). With these basic, quite intuitive, concepts, we can express the complexities of our Universe in ways unprecedented with our 3 dimensional “Standard Model”.

Nucleus of Standard Model



These are the symbols used by western science to show the nucleus of an atom with its constituent parts.

Below we have a rough sketch of the ideas Fuller has for the visualization of the components of the nucleus. See any similarities? The numbers 3, 4, 12, 24, 48 and 64 show up regularly in both systems.

Notice that the Standard Model uses the term spin with the Fermions all exhibiting increments of “half spins”. In the next post I hope to show some models which should spread some light on exactly what a “half-spin” is.
