This video may be a little drawn out but he makes great points.

Everything he posits fits nicely within Synergetics: The “Vacuum Energy” *is* the aether, the “Space” *is* the Isotropic Vector Matrix (the 4 dimensional, 60 deg matrix of Synergetics) *is* the Higgs Field, the God Particle *is* the Vector Equilibrium *is* the Higgs Boson. It all works!

# Double tet (Cube)

Here we have a little closer look at what is a common occurrence in nature. As we have stated previously a cube is inherently unstable. It requires triangulation for stability. From the Syergetic POV what is happening is that 2 tetrahedra tend to combine to form the cube. Once we provide the necessary triangulation with the two tetrahedra the external vertices form the cube. If we consider the edges of the tetrahedron as unit length (2), then the edge of the cube becomes the square root of 2, an irrational number!

Now consider this; all of the geometric shapes you have seen here are related to each other by simple integer multiples, except the cube. The cube is related to the other figures through an *irrational* number. And, here’s the point; our entire system of mensuration is based on that single unit, square edge, x,y,z coordinate system. So every time we do any measuring of virtually any physical quantity we require compromises like “rounding off” which leave miniscule left over amounts unaccounted for. How does a soap-bubble round off and what does it do with the leftover?

Next we’ll see why a 60 degree, 4 dimensional system can help us avoid some major pitfalls.

# Cosmic Hierarchy

This is a model of what Fuller titled “Cosmic Hierarchy for Omniinterrationally-phased, Nuclear-centered, Convergently-divergently Intertransformable Systems.” We’ll get into the details as we progress. For now we’ll just take a look at it.

It could be that this model embodies the soul of Synergetics. Could these 6 geometric figures comprise the entire structural system of our Universe? Fuller seemed to think so. Think of the hologram. As these figures nest and recombine they follow the same rules of geometry at every level and repeat every 6 levels. I think this system can be used to model anything in a way much closer to the way nature does.

Now, in many areas Fuller went into much greater detail as to how these figures can be subdivided and rearranged to explain many physical phenomena. I’ll leave that to others. I am going to try to use my own models to illustrate as many physical principles as I can, as they occur to me.

# Dimensions

One of the things we must grapple with in the work is the following: What is a dimension? When we refer to 3-dimensional space what are we talking about, exactly?

Most of us learned that 3-dimensional space was described by the 3 dimensions we have arbitrarily named the X, Y and Z coordinates. 3 axes at 90° to each other, a rectilinear, all-space filling geometry based on the square and cube. This is what we cal Cartesian Coordinates. This idea is so firmly implanted that many people, even mathematicians, can have a lot of difficulty imagining anything different. All of our computer systems, building systems and mathematical methods are based on the concept of 3 dimensions. So, first of all I would like to show you a model of an alternative system of dimensions.

The image at the right shows us a representation of a 4-dimensional space with the red, green, yellow and blue lines giving us a new way to look at the space we perceive around us. Now, just as with the cubic 3 dimensional system, we are showing a minimum central unit (the tetrahedron) with the 4 dimensions represented as lines passing through the midpoint of each edge of that unit. This is rather arbitrary but corresponds well with the representation we usually use for the Cartesian coordinates. For now, just consider that this system of Synergetic Coordinates is a possibility.
