How does the code geometric foundation, with its unique pattern attributes ranging paradoxically from utter simplicity to kaleidoscopic complexity, apply to the real world? To understand how, the cuboda is derived from spatial abstractions that differ from traditional geometry. As such a rational accretion of spheres proceeds from an experiential basis, i.e., a posteriori or after-the-fact approach.
Spheres are selected to be the elemental building units for their most simple geometry, and their utter ubiquity in the world experienced. The cuboda’s spherical manifestation is therefore its most primal, but in its first application focus is on the spheres’ surfaces while center-points that derive the other manifestations are ignored. Such a cluster is comprised of 12 spheres surrounding a central one.
In seeking to match the real world to the cluster, perhaps first coming to mind are classical models of atoms and molecules near one end of the material world’s spectrum. But models are models, and in such cases are conceptualizations not observed directly. Between these worlds and the (roughly and relatively) spherical nature of the universe at large, and within the scope of normal experience are the innumerable possibilities posed by sphere-shaped cosmic individuals.
Might there be one celestial body in particular that can reasonably be ascribed to the cuboda’s central sphere? It is by now well known that when humans first conceived of order in the cosmos, earth, as the most familiar of those bodies considered, was placed at the center of the universe. This view held until the bitterly fought idea of earth revolving around the sun eventually gained acceptance. Subsequently, the sun was found to orbit the center of our Milky Way galaxy, along with hundreds of billions of other stars. Galaxies were then observed to conglomerate in clusters, and these into super clusters. And yet the progression toward one ultimate center in space vanishes even as the universe has a beginning in time. Seems like another kind of uncertainty principle – writ large.
From another angle, as the dim 14 billion-year-old light of the Big Bang is roughly even in all directions, a 12 trillion-mile diameter sphere is conceivable, one in which earth might again seem to be at the center of the mighty explosion whereby time began. The mind boggling paradox of it all is that as much as the Big Bang evokes an absolute center, such a claim can be made about any star, no matter how distant, and our perspective of the universe is nothing special. But if matching earth to the central sphere of the ideal geometric form seems arrogant or vain in the face of scientific relativism, it would be equally absurd to choose any other celestial body.
To not use the sheer convenience of our planet as a reference point or the origin of a (navigational) coordinate system would be more absurd still. For humankind, earth presents an apt nexus or middle ground between macrocosmic and microcosmic worlds. In cosmic terms, earth is a minuscule sphere, but also one that is stupendously huge in atomic terms. From yet another viewpoint, one could say that of all spheres, earth is the only one common to all life at all times, as far as we know.
The import of this is that life is at least as improbably miraculous as the conditions for life posed in a cosmos overwhelmingly hostile to it. In the grand scheme of things, if earth also be the sphere common to all self-conscious beings capable of abstracting and discerning and exercising free will toward One Absolute Center of realms beyond an uncertain physical universe, earth may, after all, be ground zero for what is ultimately the greatest activity of all.
If earth is thus selected to pair with the cuboda’s central sphere, the outer 12 spheres can – by virtue of the simple, universal, and infinite growth potentiality of the pattern they constitute – be viewed as a kind of anti-entropic thunderhead in which bolts of illuminating order are imparted to the planet. How the cuboda is oriented relative to the fundamentals of earth’s poles will be the subject of the next post.
