Because this post might seem a bit abstract and unconnected to anything on this 2012th Christmas, for balance I have included at the end a link to a most deeply touching story.
In the last post, the match between the real world Planet Earth and the central sphere of the cubodal ideality posed a sublime possibility: In an infinite center-less universe, it is still one universe, and because it is one with a distinct beginning, an act of creation is suggested with its Creator at the center of it all.
A more tangible connection between our planet and the cuboda is that earth – like most all celestial bodies – is a spinning sphere with an axis of rotation. Thus the next step in forming a conceptual model is to determine how the cuboda is oriented relative to earth’s poles.
Toward this end, 4 different sets of opposing geometric features characterizing the cuboda’s outer shell present themselves as candidates. They are opposing pairs of edges, squares, triangles, and vertices. Vertices represent the end points of 12 lines radiating from the cuboda’s natural center, and because these oppose each other exactly in relation to that center, the 12 lines are actually 6 – each of which transfixes the central sphere. Any one of these lines may be designated to coincide with earth’s axis.
So designated, the cubodal shell (or in its spherical manifestation the anti-entropic thunderhead) is viewed as spinning relative to the earth sphere, such that any prime geometric feature situated directly out from the equator can be positioned to any longitude, at any time. Such a maneuver is referred to as primary rotation. Only by orienting opposing vertices to coincide with the earth’s axis can all cubodal features be so positioned.
To further locate features at any latitude (of any longitude), imaginary axes are placed through the centers of those opposing features situated over the equator. Those features situated 90˚ from them are then rotated about the equatorial axes in what is termed secondary rotations. If this seems irregular, parallel is found in the real and imaginary numbers necessary to grapple with the math of wave dynamics in the realm of physics.
These imaginary axes may be centered through any pair of equatorially opposing features. But another reason for choosing opposing vertices to align with earth’s real poles is that this assignation orients one (and only one) of the remaining pairs of opposing vertices at the equator which uniquely enables equatorial squares and all other features longitudinally aligned to them to be located latitudinally.
Thus by real and imaginary axes, primary and secondary rotations may locate all features universally. The ability to position features in this manner is important in practice because each feature represents a pattern orientation, each of which has its own applicability.
This universality serves the notion that all space/time positions are essentially equal, and as such reflects the more sublime metaphor that any perspective represented by an individual soul is unique and of equal value to the ultimate Creator of the one universe.
So much for abstraction. If you click on the graphic, you will be taken to a story I heard during a Christmas years ago on NPR. Remembering it days ago, I got so choked up I could hardly describe it to a loved one.
