Decoding the Dance of Space

From:

The first key to taking the wheel to the next dimension is the six hexagrams, and the triangles they contain.

We will always count the numbers on a triangle clockwise in order to label them. Think of this as the experience of time in one direction. It is helpful, however to think of a backwards stream of information through time. Thus we have 3-6-9; 6-3-9; 1-1-1; 8-8-8; 1-4-7; 5-2-8; 1-7-4; 2-5-8.

The next key I discovered is the application of the Buckminster Fuller Vector Flexor “jitterbug”. This is a beautiful geometric dance which Bucky believed was a model for the Universe. It is significant I think, because it shows the crucial transformation from cubic/octahedral symmetry to dodecahedral/icosahedral symmetry. Take a look at these animations to get an idea of how this works.


Now how does this apply to the Rodin Fibonacci Wheel?  Watch closely.
Our starting point will always be the cubeoctahedron, which is known in physics as vector equilibrium.

This will correspond to the first two triangles, 3-6-9 and 6-3-9. This also corresponds to a noble gas in Walter Russel’s system (diagram in my post Template for Universal Mathematics): asexuality, maximum inertia, maximum stablitiy, maximum complexity/softness of crystallization.

The cubeoctahedron then can tilt to the right or left, where it becomes an icosahedron at a tilt of 15 degrees. This is the same tilt angle as the four askew triangles, 1-4-7; 5-2-8; 7-4-1 and 2-5-8!!! When the icosahedron is closing into the octahedron, it is male, and when it opens back into the cubeoctahedron it is female.

At the maximum point of the wave, the figure collapses to an octahedron. This corresponds with carbon: bisexuality, maximum compression, maximum resistance, simplicity and hardness of crystallization, and the appearance, due to motion, of the stability of form.

Despite the 3-dimensional transformation between these three shapes, a 2-dimensional hexagram is visible, when we center our perspective on a triangular face.  So we see a motion which moves in a cycle, but can change direction at four turning points: 9-6-3; 3-6-9; 1-1-1; and 8-8-8. In this way, it can be steered into infinitely complex forms. We can look at it like a flow chart indexed by the angle of the triangle that is front and centered, corresponding with the 8 triangles of our 24 number circle.

Now compare this with the eight trigrams around a circle which form the basis of the I Ching.

The four trigrams at the top/bottom/left/right are in positions of relative balance, at the zero points and peaks of the wave, whereas the four trigrams at diagonals are in the transitional phase.  Because the left side of the circle is a mirrored inverse of the right side, we can unite the opposing hexagrams for a deeper understanding of this system.  The noble gas is both Creative AND Receptive, it contains both the memories of every action, and the imagination which will create the future.  The dense matter of maximum potential at the peak of the wave is Radiant AND Dark.  That is, hot and cold, light and dark, dense motion at the center and tenuous space surrounding it are in maximum opposition.  We can simplify and bring these two together into a kind of magic square/circle.

3-6-9 triangle becomes 3 according to multiples of 3; likewise 6-3-9 becomes 6.  1-1-1 becomes 1, 8-8-8 becomes 8.  1-4-7 becomes 4 because it is powers of 4, and 7-4-1 is powers of  7.  2-5-8 and 5-2-8  are abbreviations of halving and doubling cycles, or 5 and 2, respectively.

Now imagine that you can not only change direction from clockwise or counter-clockwise, but that, at any stage of the cycle, you can choose a new center triangle to start from. This gives us a model of the 4-dimensional 24-cell, which can nest all five platonic solids.  Look at this view where the octahedron goes from a plane, to fully formed, back to a plane again.

To view it as a 3-d hologram, cross your eyes and try to bring the two images into resolution together, a lot like a Magic Eye.  I recommend printing the image if you are doing this a lot, as staring at a computer screen with your eyes crossed will give you a headache.  From this page on Hyperspace. http://home.comcast.net/~eswab/hyprspac.html

Furthermore, it unfolds the pattern to 64 total permutations, just like the I Ching.  If this can be shown to be a workable system, it would throw a completely new spin (literally) on the I Ching; there are various states of motion described by the different hexagrams.  From this perspective, we could use Nassim Haramein’s 64 tetrahedron vector-matrix grid ( http://www.theresonanceproject.org/graphics.html ) as a starting point.  I am trying to find someone who could model this matrix going through the Vector Flexor Jitterbug Dance.

More to come, feedback is encouraged/appreciated.  Peace to All.

Arthur Winfree – The Geometry of Biological Time

 

To understand the origins of fibrillation and potential treatments, Art initiated several different lines of enquiry. In careful numerical and experimental studies of two-dimensional excitable media, Art demonstrated that rotating spiral waves often meander in space—the exact geometry of the meander depending on the parameters of the differential equations or the experimental preparation (Winfree, 1990a).

Moreover, in some instances, spiral waves spontaneously break up, leading to many independently rotating spiral waves (Courtemanche and Winfree, 1991). In order to investigate the stability of the twisted and knotted scroll waves that he and Steve Strogatz predicted to exist and to determine initial conditions that might lead to these waves, Art and his students began an ambitious project of super-computer calculations of three-dimensional scroll wave dynamics (Nandapurkar and Winfree, 1987; Winfree, 1990b,1994; Henze and Winfree, 1991).

To determine the geometry of wave propagation in intact heart, Art collaborated with the late Frank Witkowski, a brilliant cardiologist who was building an optical mapping apparatus to study wave propagation in heart during fibrillatory rhythms by measuring the fluorescence of heart tissue stained with voltage-sensitive dyes. This work led to the observation of rotating spiral waves from the surface of a sheep heart during ventricular fibrillation (Witkowski, et al., 1998). Art’s ideas about cardiac arrhythmias and their relationship to rotating spiral and scroll waves are summarized in his book, When Time Breaks Down (Winfree, 1987).

This book helped to shape experimental and theoretical work by many investigators, including R. Ideker, J. Jalife, J. Keener and A. Karma. In 1987, Art moved from Purdue to the University of Arizona, where he continued his research on chemical reactions and cardiac muscle, somewhat incongruously, in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.

Though good at it, Art was never truly comfortable with computer simulations. To him they were guides to his intuition, geometric vision, and experimental tinkering. How would it be possible to confirm experimentally the predicted existence of stable scroll rings and other more exotic, three-dimensional, rotating structures? Although it seemed likely that scroll rings could rotate deep in the heart, optical studies of wave propagation in heart tissue were only capable of imaging a thin surface layer, so it was impossible to observe scroll rings directly.

Hoping to find sound experimental evidence for the subtle and spectacular patterns playing out in his computer simulations, Art designed and built a system to measure with high resolution the concentration patterns of BZR intermediates in space and time. It was essentially a high-tech version of his stacked filter papers. By shining a light through the BZR and scanning the absorption of light at different angles, he used tomographic reconstruction techniques to determine the geometry of the three-dimensional rotating structure.

In Winfree et al. (1996), he described the many technical hurdles that had to be overcome and presented unequivocal evidence that the detailed anatomy of rotating scroll waves could in fact be observed in real systems. In what we believe is Art’s last paper on this problem, published post-humously, he addressed some of these matters computationally (Sutcliffe and Winfree, 2003). Unfortunately, following the demonstration of optical tomographic imaging of the BZR, the projected use of this method to study a host of other problems (such as the initial conditions needed to seed various three-dimensional structures, and the dynamics and stability of knotted and twisted scroll rings in real systems) was never completed. Those problems, many of which are sketched out in a recent review (Winfree, 2001), remain a part of Art’s legacy to future generations.

Ken Wheeler – The Pythagorean Tetraktys

“Some called the Tetraktys the great oath of the Pythagoreans, because they considered it the perfect number, or even because it is the principle of wholeness; among them is Philolaus.

“The number 10 is complete at 4” “To him that gave to our generation the Tetraktys, which contains the fount and root of all eternal nature”
“Arithmetic, geometric, and harmonics were the three principles by which the Divine Artifice proportioned out the world soul”

Number is the first principle, a thing which is undefined, incomprehensible, having in itself all numbers which could reach infinity in amount. And the first principle of numbers is in substance the first Monad, which is a male monad, begetting as a father all other numbers. Secondly, the Dyad is a female number, and the same is called by the arithmeticians even.

Thirdly, the Triad is a male number; this the arithmeticians have been wont to call odd. Finally, the Tetrad is a female number, and the same is called even because it is female. ….

Pythagoras said this sacred Tektractys is: `the spring having the roots of ever-flowing nature.’…. the four parts of the Decad, this perfect number, are called number, monad, power and cube. And the interweavings and minglings of these in the origin of growth are what naturally completes nascent number.

Golden Ratio in Life and Science

So called empty space is most likely structured. Buckminster Fuller already considered the possibility that the geometric structure of space was given by his Isotropic Vector Matrix (IVM): a network of interconnected tetrahedra and octahedra with a Vector Equilibrium in its center. This is what I have called the inner structure of Metatron’s Cube, a structure that scales inwards and outwards, and whose cartesian coordinates can be derived exclusively from integer and rational numbers, in fact from powers of 2 and 3 as in Aristoxenus musical scale. For Fuller, the IVM was a conceptual framework describing the symmetry of space, with which energy events could interact through its jitterbug property, producing a radiating wave of activity [3, p.192]. So the hypothesis is that, depending on the frequency of the sound source, a different geometric energy propagation pattern takes place in empty (structured) space. This geometric pattern may not captured by microphones, but it may interact with the subtle bodies of human beings, and it may be the source of the inherent qualities of sound that we are able to perceive but not yet to quantify.

Oleh Bodnar – Dynamic Symmetry in Nature and Architecture

The term dynamic symmetry was for the first time applied by the American architecture researcher J. Hambidge to a certain principle of proportioning in architecture . Later this term independently appeared in physics where it was introduced to describe physical processes that are characterized by invariants. Finally, in the given research the term dynamic symmetry is applied to regularity of natural form-shaping that in terms of origin also appears not to be connected with Hambidge’s idea, and, moreover, appearance of this term in physics. However, all the three variants are deeply interconnected in terms of their meaning which we are going to show.

At first, we point out strategic similarity of Hambidge’s and our researches. This is a well-known historical direction which in the field of architecture and art is motivated by the search for harmony regularities and, thus, is aimed at studying the objects of nature. Usually architects take interest in the structural regularities of natural form-shaping and, particularly, in the golden section and Fibonacci numbers which are regularities standing out by their intriguing role in architectural form-shaping. It is not accidentally that architects who do researches so frequently pay attention to botanical phenomenon phyllotaxis which is characterized by these regularities.

Number and Magnitude

We have lost the relationship between Number and Form or Number and Magnitude as the Ancient Greeks called their Forms.

Article

A few years ago a Revolution in Mathematics and Physics has started. This revolution is caused by Geometric Algebra.

In Geometric Algebra the Ancient Theories of Euclid and Pythagoras are reevaluated.

Numbers are Scalar (Quantum) Movements of Geometric Patterns and not Static Symbols of Abstractions that have nothing to do with our Reality.

Movements and not Forces are the Essence of Physics.

The basic rule Movement = Space/Time (v=s/t) shows that  Time and Space are two Reciprocal 3D-Spaces. Our Senses Experience Space and not Time.

The Simple Rule N/N=1/1=1 balances the Duals of Space and Time. One Unit Step in Space is always Compensated by One Unit Step in Time.
