The Metaphysical Game of Baseball

Where the code delves into ground design, the 2D surface grids that guide such follow natural lines of longitude (Polar) and latitude (Rotational); and the (locally) rectilinear Diamond grid skewed 45° from the P-R grid.

The P-R grid is fairly common in the US (most of the Midwest, LA, Chicago, Houston, etc.) but the D-grid is pretty rare. In the strictly local sense, the geometry of baseball fields probably afford the most familiar examples of the diamond configuration – although they rarely conform to the NE,NW,SE,SW specification that the code requires.

In integrating the 2 grid types one to the other, the code rule is very strict, very simple, and derives from the linear transition between the geocentric cuboda and (either) celestial cube appended to (either equatorial) square. The change in direction between a radial bode line and an outward directed cube edge is an open 45°. A sharp 45° turn on the other hand is not allowed in transitioning between grids.

In baseball, every play is initiated by the pitcher with his aim being to throw a strike past the batter, that is to break the rule forbidding a sharp 45°. Conversely, the batter must prevent this from happening, and to the extent he succeeds, he defends the honor of the diamond.

Admittedly, viewing the game in this way is 180° off from how it traditionally sees pitchers and his assistants as defense and the batting (and base running) lineup as offense. But in this day and age when meanings of words are increasingly perverted, I would argue from first principles that defense by definition always responds secondly to the initiating offensive act. From this standpoint, pitchers are kind of evil and batters brave defenders very close to the line of fire.

So where does metaphysics come into the baseball geometry picture? The reason for not allowing sharp 45° turns and following the open bode/cube transition is actually rather sublime. In this world, the bode/cube relationship – conveniently and naturally based on plane and principle – constitutes the best possible way in which the material cube may interact with the spiritual bode in the context of having to deal with gravitational and electromagnetic forces which make a model of their truest (heavenly) relationship unrealizable.

But there or here, the forms and the angles between them are the same. So hope you enjoy what remains of the 2017 MLB league championships and World Series – as well as your local competitions – with this new way of looking at the game.

Complex Orders of Sphere Clusters

Cuboctahedron sphere clusterIn addition to the most basic order of sphere clusters that the underlying bode (cuboctahedron) pattern constitutes, the code utilizes a couple of other simple ordered sphere cluster configurations. In departing from the bode pattern, these orders have hardly any representation in nature as I believe bode geometry does, but as they extend from the latter in a natural way, they possess a sensible usefulness if thoughtfully applied.

Appending spheres to 4 comprising any bode square cluster – in a way that duplicates that square’s (right) angles of intersecting lines – results in a simple cube which is quite abstract and rare in nature.

IMG_1468

Two such cubes appended to opposing squares of the geocentric thunderhead bears rough correspondence to the mysterious natural phenomena of barred galaxies characterizing our own Milky Way. As the cube forms the basis of humanity’s built world, two of same are used to form the code’s highly specified architectural style.

The other cluster order that The Code utilizes is defined by its underlying triangular prism which simply stacks 3-sphere triangular clusters upon each other to form the base unit by which a larger form of hexagonal alternation is configured. It’s connection to bode geometry arises by first shifting that form along any innate bisecting hexagonal plane.

IMG_1467

The bode spherical accretion rule of not deep nesting into a tetrahedral cluster is broken only along the bisecting plane to attain a mirror symmetry. With such a clearly defined bode pattern break, the transverse hexagonal expansion of triangular prisms finds easy justification. As with the cube cluster, departing from the rules of an indefinite accretion of spheres does so in a clear specified way for a very specific reason entailing very basic application.

IMG_1466

With the hexagonal shift and expansion, the dynamic quality of the bode cluster order is neutralized by virtue of its symmetry transformation, an attribute that logically makes the form appropriate for vehicular components at rest relative to the forward motion afforded by the unshifted bode “wheel”.

If such clear simple order transformations can arise from the basic bode pattern to enable more complex functions by departing from spherical accretion rules, what are the possibilities for more complex orders? In nature, there are atoms of increased nuclear (and thus electronic) complexity. While one might regard using spheres to model such as outdated by quantum probability clouds, atomic sphere clusters still model a significant aspect of physical reality. And so with the next level of molecular constructs where spheres do not merely touch at one point but rather interpenetrate.

IMG_1465

In a thought experiment, something akin to the exceedingly complex order posed by models of DNA – the molecules of life – might be attempted starting from the bode base cluster and ignoring the rule against deep nesting spheres into tetrahedral clusters to form those of sophisticated sequences such that their orders eventually, in some sense, return to satisfy some condition and thus repeat. In their complexity they may appear locally random but theoretically can be made to rise into the two intertwined helical forms that characterize the molecule. Even with only a few atomic elements characterizing DNA, however, this sophistication surely cannot be matched by the bode cluster pattern with its departure requirement of one sphere size only.

What is interesting to ponder in all this is the possibility of material elements coming into such a complex order from shear chance. If I read them correctly, Intelligent Design proponents argue that it is more probable for a jumbo jet to spontaneously assemble itself from a tornado passing through a junk yard than a DNA molecule forming from a soup of the requisite elements. With zillions of random movements and interactions per second, I have to question the soundness of this analogy. On the other hand, if the negative probability isn’t sufficient for a DNA to form by accident, I suspect a molecule thus formed would very likely disintegrate into oblivion just as fast it formed, unless some higher agency was informing and guiding the process – like the Holy Spirit.

IMG_1464However that may be, a most sophisticated order of spherical accretion is entailed in building and maintaining life, an order perfectly – and very delicately – balanced. With the bode’s clunkier indefinite accretion of (equal-sized) spheres, a single mistake can lead to no order at all if placements degenerate into a “natural” and totally indiscriminate deep nesting of spheres. I strongly suspect that something analogous to this is what happens with the growth of cancer. A mistake caused by confusion or conflict, rebellion or weakness left uncorrected by the lack of a suitably disciplining agency engenders a complete breakdown of order.

Ever more conflicted inner worlds in ever more complex social realities wallowing in ever more complex exploitation and technologic pollutions against over conserved ecosystems would seem to factor heavily in the relatively recent preponderance of this disease. Something truly sublime is entailed with the order of life, and if an exemplary reset to an essential order is deemed to have little value, the Ultimate Instiller of such should be given its due with our full appreciation.

Orders of Sphere Clusters

I believe the geometric foundation upon which the code is based can aptly be called universal essentially because it is based on, in fact built by, spheres – the forms characterizing virtually all the celestial bodies, those elementary particles that can truthfully be called both particles and elementary, and the ubiquitous overlapping potential fields engendered by charge (electrostatic) and mass (gravitation).

In such light, spheres clustered according to the underlying bode (cuboctahedron) pattern constitute the simplest order possessing the capacity of being extended outward or divided inward to any imaginable degree – while retaining the individual sphere’s attribute of having a natural center in that any cluster sphere is potentially a center of the immediate bode pattern spheres fully surrounding it, as opposed to a cubic pattern.

Such bode geometry might also be the simplest expression of the fabric or form of physical space itself – along with time if we accept the inherent dynamism of the bode. In that case spin would be the first motion by which time is perceived as a sequence of events. To say that rotation is the first motion, as opposed to straight line translation, concurs with the idea of space-time curvature.

This is why I believe the bode form is so useful and applicable to such a wide spectrum of constructs we humans have crafted to help us survive in nature. Alas, the reason I have restated all this is to establish a reference point or foundation to function as an introduction to a brief exploration of other very important cluster orders and in doing so underscoring the importance of order. Such will be the topic of the next post or two.

Electricity Aesthetics

While residing in the Tucson area a few years back, I visited the Architectural Department of the University of Arizona with one question: Why – in this physically ideal and favorable political environment for alternative energy – were there so few applications of photovoltaic systems to be seen on the region’s rooftops?

Of the small grouping to whom I addressed the question, a smartly dressed woman with an air of authority replied that PVs were not sufficiently advanced or cost effective to warrant their incorporation with rooftop design. However, there was enough irritated defensiveness in her voice to suspect the answer was more excuse than reason.

Later, after and reading a local newspaper article conveying the aesthetic complaints of neighbors having to view a proposed building’s solar-paneled roof, I guessed that architectural aesthetic purity was the real culprit.To some extent at least, I would have to agree that most examples of rooftop PV systems are not pretty.

What seems to be ignored in this judgement, however, is the longstanding acceptance of overhead wires supplying electricity from elsewhere going every which way as if scribbled by a child artist.

IMG_1463

The result essentially mars otherwise good views be they natural or manmade as shown of Bellingham Bay from million dollar homes or toward the classic beauty of a nearby Catholic Church.

Alternatively, if one could imagine the building below without its electrical umbilical, I think its roof at least approaches what can be a satisfying harmony between aesthetics and the practicality of generating one’s own electricity with space remaining for the former. In addition to posing optimal alignment for such, I believe the complementary roof scheme of the Cube-based Abode poses a roof of deeper rectilinearity by which an architect can make the functionality of a roof’s PV and cooling albedo reflection aesthetic in myriad ways – even before considering the variance in material texture and color.

IMG_1461

So designed, such a roof becomes more attuned to the model given by nature with the protection of tree leaf shingles serving photosynthetic functions. A roof with functional solar elements can be more aesthetic than one without – just as a wall with doors, windows, etc. is more interesting than a blank one. To have a roof function thus means less space for PV. But as proferred in a previous post, covering a mere half the load (the electronic half) is a very reasonable and laudable goal.

Utility electricity would still be needed for motorized refers, ACs, etc. Strained efforts to do the very hard work of getting loosely bound electrons to march in the same direction of a conductor’s very bumpy road also manifests as giant airplane propellers such as these atop richly forested mountains outside Burney, California.

IMG_1462

Some folks think such displays are beautiful but I would have agree with Trump on this one in that they pose goofy eyesores. Conversely, ever-aligned vertical axis wind turbines set atop poles supporting wires to poles supporting other lines of underground cables offer generation and transmission in a manner that complements the beauty of nature.

The New Orientation PDF

As far as I have been able to determine, there is no precedent for what Geocentric Design Code presents. Its connection to the tree of human thought, experience, and artifice is so tenuous that I have yet to find an easy way to say “it is like this, except . . . “ without folks responding with blank faces and eager to shift topics.

Because of this difficulty, I feel its formal detailed expression has to be just about perfect, as even the tiniest errors can distract from what is evidently a delicate logical path. And I can see this whenever I come back to a satisfyingly completed revision after an elapsed time and view what I have done more like what others would be presented with. In so doing, I inevitably find, along with nettlesome errors, a better way to portray the code, and as long as I do, the burden is on me to do so if it isn’t going anywhere.

So it is with the full 92-page PDF completed last November, with one tiny error like an “a” where there should have been an “an”, I set out for another revision and overhaul. As I proceeded to make the minor corrections, better ways of wording concepts came to mind that made them clearer and flow better with what came before and after.

With the first 9 of 13-pages of Part I (Orientation) just completed, that was all there was to it. But the last 4 pages dealing with attributes of the code’s geometric foundation (the cuboctahedron) were so piecemeal, ad hoc, strained, and convoluted, major reconstruction was called for and (I think) I have now succeeded in getting the most economic sequence of concepts possible, so that they build without sharp turns or backtracking.

The biggest change comes with bode wave generation at the end of the page (12) on geometric interplay. After much exploration described in the last post, I found I could expand the previous nominal and highly inadequate allusion to a 4 or 5 step climb to waves from the idea of intrinsic dynamism of spun cones.

Portrayed thus, the concept of wave generation melds with the essence of alternating bode pattern repetition on the final page of an indefinite accretion of spheres. And with that exploration, the idea of biasing the pattern with lines of spheres to give the quality of unending omnidirectional generation an order that eventually condenses to the geocentric cuboda.

As such, the sequence naturally concludes with the essences of pattern superimpositions to earth, an apt preparation for Part II cube-based abode architectural conceptualizations. All in all, the elegance of the code’s foundational geometry comes out more powerful than ever, and hopefully you find this so also.
