This still was taken from this video produced by the European Space Observatory ESO about Proxima B, the closest planet likely to be habitable.
By feeding it into our Smart Knowledge Engine it shows a new ‘landscape’ in ‘visual and metric 3D’:
But the real magic happens on screen when you start moving that ‘landscape’ around to look at its peaks and valleys:
But my most likeminded heroes must be Giordano Bruno (1548 – 1600), Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750) and Pythagoras (570 BC – 495 BC) – besides everybody who contributed to the evolution of computing.
These Golden Verses are attributed to Pythagoras and end with:
Pythagoras is famous for his theorem a2 + b2 = c2. But what I have put into software is his other famous saying:
I found my favourite quote of Giordano Bruno in the Museum for Telecommunications in Berlin:
Woman must measure, too! Especially on-screen!!!…
It just appeared one day, out of nowhere, on the desk by the bedroom window. I picked it up and looked at it. It was a big book with not many pages in it, and with an arresting title in big black letters on the front, which read: MAN MUST MEASURE.
I must have been 7 or 8 years old, and I was living with my mother in my grandparent’s house when I drank in those words, which seemed to possess the force of a veritable Commandment.
I opened it, and discovered that it was both lavishly illustrated and also filled with numbers and diagrams. It was the strangest and most terrifying book I had ever encountered.
I began to read the book, a little fearful that I wasn’t supposed to be reading it. Much of it seemed incomprehensible, but on the third or fourth page I came across…

Busy unifying my physical life with pain, social life with meaning and professional life with zest…
Yes, it’s over 42 years since January 1973 when I remembered falling and thinking ‘this must be the end, this must be the ocean.‘
Well, eventually I discovered the ‘cosmic ocean‘ as the reality that holds and embeds us, the invisible worlds of energies that physics can’t unite between nuclear and astral scales.
And my invention of analysing images in a new way will lead to making pain visible! I just wonder when the wisdom of the universe will want that to come out. Meanwhile, I keep trying and kicking…
Especially after doctors told me that my pain is ‘psychological’, I’ve made the rounds in search of pain relief. But pains are only SYMPTOMS. What matters is to find the CAUSES.
Mis-alignment is an ‘obvious’ cause that I discovered thanks to what was first Bikram Yoga and became Fierce Grace in North London. Since I had to…

When updating my last post about the Digital I Ching, WordPress showed me 25 quotes by Terence McKenna that will blow your mind published by The Unbounded Spirit. I found them inspiring and insightful, especially the link between Cult and Culture, given that we are dealing with a father whose children accuse him of being the leader of a cult that kills babies and abuses them and 18 other ‘special’ children…
I also stumbled into NUMBERS as the fourth book of the Old Testament. There are 35 chapters in NUMBERS. Reading just the titles, is like reading the history of people divided between living in unison with god and fighting that what can be called god or ‘universal’ and ‘cosmic intelligence’.
I noticed the ‘threescore’ for Judah and Dan. I wrote it as if it meant 100,000, but that’s hardly correct. The ‘numbering by their names’ is to me the attribution of numerical values of letters.
In our troubled times, we each have to find our sources for meaning and making sense of all phenomena around us.
Blessed be the internet with its fountains of data, information, knowledge and wisdom!
I’m coming out with my scientific knowledge, mathematical insights and philosophical understanding of why humanity is where it’s at.
I worked at CERN from 1966 to 1979, but suffered this terrible accident because a physicist friend had fallen asleep on the wheel in 1973. As the only woman I was invited to celebrate 50 years of computing at CERN. The boss of my former boss told us how hard it was to convince physicists of the value of computing. I wish people would appreciate computer languages for learning logic and human languages to understand communication.
I stop hiding. Enough is enough: suffering from abuse because I exposed the worst possible child sexual abuse, when my mum saved me from the bombing of Dresden for a much higher purpose.
I have dissolved many mathematical puzzles and turned the curse of dimensionality into the blessing of layering complex data. This includes an exact value for π in another number system. But a patent agent told me “You can’t patent theories, you must create vendible products.” That’s how I became a software designer and came up with the prototype that produced this gallery of images with their re-visualisations through my ‘software lenses’.
I have not been accepted for competitions and challenges because I was not part of the academic establishment. Oodles of funding applications have been rejected. Everybody wants to know how I’m doing what I’m doing. Nobody puts their money down to pay programmers to turn my designs into code. Too many applications are possible. But Ken Adachi who publishes Educate Yourself immediately ‘got it’. Some people do. Many don’t. He proposed I use images from his site to illustrate the damage of vaccines more accurately! Smart application, obviously! But he also thought of many others, including my latest disappointment with a betting king. Hence I’m working on the Ethical Investment Network now.
The I Ching is no magic; it is a science we don’t understand.
The use of octal numbers has allowed me to find ‘stable’ hexagrams, i.e. those with dual octal digits: the values 00, 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77.
In digital designs, they can be represented from four ‘view points’ or ‘cornerstones’:
When used for divination, two hexagrams are used: one to represent the Here and Now and a second one that the current situation changes into, based on those lines that change when we make our conventional or binary divination.
The position of two hexagrams within a set of hexagrams and eight different sets adds new scope for interpretation:
1. Which ‘quadrant’ or ‘directional context’ of change do our two hexagrams occupy? That depends on the ‘intensity’ of change, as indicated by the ‘stability’ of the two hexagrams:
The meaning of the quadrant position is explained also under polarities:
2. Which ‘plane’ are we moving from and to:
It is this combination of visual beauty and numerical accuracy that adds new value to this ancient wisdom.
Or are we moving
3. How do we interpret the comparisons of visual positions and numerical values of two hexagrams?
Row 1 contains hexagrams with octal values 10, 11 … 17.
Row 7 contains hexagrams 70, 71 … 77.
And so it goes:
a new visual order thanks to a new numerical order!
Above all, marvel at the beauty of the visual and numerical symmetries!
These are the first images I produced with GIMP.
Let’s see where the digital paintbrush will lead me…
In the next collection of diagrams you will notice the symmetry created by organising the hexagrams in four different ways:
Thus they form a new kind of ‘visual ensemble’:
Light (heaven) at the centre radiates towards Dark (earth) on the outskirts.
And now in reverse order, with earth at the centre and light at the periphery:
Or with the highlights of colour:
1. from 00 to 77, i.e. Earth to Heaven, starting at four different corner points:
2. from 77 to 00, i.e. Light or Heaven to Darkness or Earth:
think of what now is so obvious: the use of octal numbers to re-order the hexagrams 1 to 64 (base 10) from 00 to 77 (base 8), leading to remarkable visual effects.
So I used
and produced a lot of
Hence I was amused to discover that for the Chinese, the New Year is the Year of the Sheep, starting 19 February, with the number 8, considered to be the luckiest number, being ubiquitous, as said on this site.
