It is a strange phenomenon, this process called thinking. Especially when it’s aided by software:
for it requires the rigour of Zen, combined with the freedom of right brain associations.

I know very well when I’m in conceptual heaven. I know it makes me happy to abstract, generalise and think up the right names for the right ideas.

And I know that I need to dive into analytical hell. For the devil is in the detail.
But splitting hairs, separating powers and issues has happened too much in the Western world.
Everything has been taken apart. Not enough has been put together again.
What I’d like to put together is the smartness of human perception
with the cleverness of computer processing or number crunching.

For when celebrating 50 years of computing @ CERN, I was introduced to Citizens CyberScience and
One of the projects is – the invitation for volunteers to classify images:
identify cancer cells and estimate their number.

Hey presto: an invitation to do better, the opportunity for automation!
And thus I was catapulted into conceptual heaven:
writing the spec for a coder to tell the machine what I’d like it to do for us.

For we, the people, can’t possibly do it: scan systematically and precisely,
pixel by pixel, compare and check, decide and proceed:
counting the good ones and the bad ones – just as Cinderella.

And now I wonder: will Prince Charming show up in the shape of Cancer Research UK?

Dynamic 2-Way Motion of Opposites
in Harmonic 3D Resonance of Wave Fields

Movement is the change agent,
motion the motor of transformation,
change the balancing act.

Opposite Light-Energy « Space-Matter conditions in 3D result in

¨      dual movement directions
in « out

  • polar light quality
    cold « hot
    dark «bright
  • opposite energy characteristics
    push « pull
    charging « discharging

¨      opposite volume conditions
empty « filled

¨      and polar shape characteristics or aspects of form
hollow « solid.

But the physics of phenomena does not match the mathematics of describing them.

May my designs for Smart Knowledge Portals
deliver the software lenses of enlightenment
that people need
to build bridges
between abstract notions and concrete measurements!

May data- and measurement-based science usher in a new phase of enlightement and understanding:
between the visible and the invisible,
the measurable and the immeasurable.

For my ‘pixel accuracy’ takes the noise out of data, as Prof. Pankaj Vadgama said…

THE Photonic Ocean of Light

Light Energy in Photons, Orbitals and Spirals


If there is a beginning, there is Light Energy.
Measured in photons in motion and phonons in stillness.


A spherical photon comes from the photonic ocean of a sun.
When Light Energy moves, it follows spiralling pathways of motion.
Spiralling pathways are orbitals: the cycle or turn of a spiral.


In stillness, many orbitals form one spiral.
Their pathways are light threads.
Their density determines brightness.


In motion, spirals are dynamic:
two-way motion
along orbitals in 3D Space
creates alternation.


Alternating orbitals create pulsation in terms of linear movement:
between an upper and a lower spiral,
the two halves of a double spiral.


Alternating orbitals also create a dual shape: a cone and a pyramid,
in terms of 3D Motion Shape,
with centripetal and centrifugal effects of spiral motion.


And in addition to photons on orbitals, in conic and pyramidal spiral shapes,
there is the right/left dynamic of intertwining spiral twins.


Light energy in spiral twins is spinning:
charging and discharging, raising and lowering potential.


Circular right/left spin and vertical up/down pulsation,
these determine the spiral’s charge,
its electric potential:
an amplitude and a frequency
in spiralling terms.


But space has three dimensions.
Two-way dynamics resonate in three-way fields.


The spinning spiral twins pulsating in dual spiral shape,
create wave fields of light in spherical shapes.


In dark, cold and vast space, spherical wave fields of light radiate and are reflected:
spherically by their own boundaries and orthogonally by opposite space conditions.


Dynamic 2-way motion creates 3-way wave fields.
Thus we need to study harmonic 3D resonance that result from dynamic 2-way motion.


Opposite light energy conditions meet opposite space matter conditions.


Balance is naturally and lawfully redressed with respect to
 the quality of light
 the characteristics of energy
 the shape of space
 and the form of matter.


NUMBERS in Arithmetic(s)

English: Multiplication is often taught as rep...

If you add and subtract,
0 is nothing.
If you advance forward or backward,
0 gets you nowhere.

But when you begin to multiply,
you annul and annihilate
by associating with 0 as one of your factors.

Yet what is multiplication
if not compounding addition?
Adding a bunch at a time
not just One.

Anything + zero is anything.
But anything * zero is nothing.

Yet, geometrically speaking,
multiplying means going in two directions:
so many steps by factor 1
and, at right angle, so many steps of factor 2.

Unitary steps along an axis
become unitary squares in the plane created by co-ordinates.

However, + and – are a quality as well as an operation.
As a quality of number they mean right ® or left: ¬.
As an operation on value, add or subtract.

Positive and negative is only one aspect of + and –
when they describe the quality of constants.
Right and left is another one:
inherent in numbers,
noticeable as orientation for spin and motion.

Constants are solid numbers.
Their value is fixed.

But 0 and 1 are special constants,
for they have special value:
in the creation of centres of balance and gravity,
units of duality and polarity and symmetric twins of change and motion,
as building blocks
for all else to follow as opposite and polar pairs:
direction, operation, transformation.

COSMIC Constants as Universal Principles

 Thesis, antithesis and synthesis are noble principles
for learning and comprehending.

In Western thinking, analysis or dissection comes first.
Synthesis or wholeness is what we are striving for.

Synthetic are those operations that are building and augmenting: addition and multiplication.

Analytical are those that are reducing and diminishing:
subtraction and division,
creating fractions and negativity, roots and complexity.

Putting operations in 3D, means operating either above board
or below the x/y plane of z=0.

Perception and observation lead to abstraction and generalisation.
But the hardest of all are conceptualisation and universalisation:
to find concepts that reflect the greatest common denominator,
and formulate them such that they are true, universally.

To go deep enough to see universal truth,
to think long enough to know cosmic law,
may take meditative stillness
and focused concentration.

Over millennia, humanity has observed and abstracted,
generalised and universalised,
focused and concentrated.

It seems to take evolutionary ideas and synchronistic thoughts
to produce newness:
thinking in rhythm with the cosmos,
in the timing of the universe.

And it takes computers to help our thinking along:
as a reflective mirror,
a responsive drawing pad,
an interactive pencil
and a looking glass with a difference.

Abstraction in thought means finding higher levels of commonality:
the common multiples,
where ideas meet and come together.

In calculus, higher levels
are found through the process of integration,
with results of 0 and ¥.

In algebra, abstraction means generalisation.
Generalising means substituting numbers with n
where n can assume values from 0 to ±¥.

Constants are numbers, the bedrock of mathematics.
But 0 and 1 are more than constants.

0 and 1 are cause and effect,
law and principle,
builders of numbers,
architects of constants
motors of all movement.

Numbers have value (cm, pounds, £) and no value (0, 1, 2, 3).
Constant or variable, value and none.
In cosmos and nature, they are and they make happen by their very being.

Whether they are observed or not, valued or not, by humans and mathematicians.

Just as a brick has value by being in a wall,
numbers don’t need a price tag for existence.

Ownership does NOT give them their raison d’être.
They have value by being.

At the right time, in the right place: Zero as a centre of balance,
with the right distance to determine One as a unit for reference,
so that 0 and 1 create the God-given twin symmetry for completion.

2 is the higher level for 0 and 1: the first level of integration.

THE Eternal Process of Creation

Speed of light (Fizeau)

Rotating around our still point and pole,
circulating in an orbit of gravity,
and integrating the push away and the pull towards,
this is stillness in motion,
meditation in action,
energy transforming into matter
to find form through fields
and back.

The eternal process
of creation of visible matter
from invisible energy,
and order of relative motion
from objects in absolute positions –
both inside our mind and outside
is unending a dance –
of life outside and exploration inside.

When e = mc2,
c2 is the attempt
to describe the powers
that create form.

Form for matter.

The speed of light
is measured
as linear distance
and squared.

What if we measured the length of a sin wave travelled?

 The circumference of a sphere
unravelled as wave
along which light particles rotate
on their seeming journey to earth?

God creates numbers and units
and One as measure.

Who am I to establish a measure
for the speed of light?

Just a new way of looking:
from lines to waves,
from a straight distance
to a curved sin wave.

FROM Two to Three: how about Quantum Cubes as Metric Units?

Symmetry group D nd or 2*n on the sphere

From static “point, radius, diameter”
is but one step to harmonic “volume, vortex, resonance”:
between two energy fields
in their orbits of navigation.

In man-made rectangular dimensions,
three is the root of the diagonal in space.

In nature-made spherical shapes,
three is the volume of a radius
of One, multiplied by wondrous p –
simplified and demystified in later tomes.

Three is the level of completion
for the sphere of circulation,
the double spirals in motion
and the culmination of rotation and circulation
in their vortex of energy,
the resonance of their fields.

The light of the sun
creates matter in motion
which begets form
through their fields of attraction.

The form of a sphere,
the matter from spheres,
along waves of movement as energy:
three states of existence,
three notions for being.

In man-made mathematics
three counts dimensions
and symmetries:
pairs of direction.

It counts operations
as well as their symmetrical opposites.

But the ultimate trinity
is man as god, goddess and human,
Heracles, Ulysses and Christ,
Adam, Eve and God.

Created in unity,
we create duality in thinking and language,
but integrate in trinity,
on the third higher level,
in the erect third dimension.
