Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

When we mess with the foundation of mathematics, we mess with the foundation of physics and the technology that is the foundation of Western civilization. God have mercy on my soul, because I can't stop now! The posts on page 3 of this topic deal with the relationship between the tetraktys and the L...

Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

The LST community views the physical universe as a stage of space and time for matter and its interactions. As David Hestenes expresses it, the goal of their research program is to find the set of the fewest interactions among the set of the fewest particles of nature, This has resulted in the stand...

Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

If the reader wants to review page 3 of the posts above, where I explored the progression of the tetraktys - LC in terms of poles, it will perhaps be helpful in the present context. There, we were discussing the connection of the tetraktys to Pascal's triangle and the LC progression, thinking that t...

Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

With the new diagram posted above, combining the dimensions, "directions" and magnitudes of the tetraktys and the geometry of the LC with the Bott periodicity theorem adapted from John Baez's online article on the octonions, we have, in one image, a composite picture of the mathematics, geometry and...

Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

After thinking about it further, I realized that the new modulo 8 clock posted above could be enhanced to match the tetraktys - LRC graphic even more, by adding the notion of the progression of the radii of the LRC's inner ball to it, the magnitude of which is the √1. Since the progression is based ...

Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

John Baez is a smart guy, and I've quoted him many times on Bott Periodicity. Bottom line, he says he's "shocked" that "something so basic-sounding as 'dimension' should be related to something so erudite-sounding as the 'octonions'! However, what he and his fellow mathematicians have failed to reco...

Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

One of the most important discoveries in our theoretical development has been the connection between the dimensions of the tetraktys and the geometry of the 2x2x2 stack of unit cubes we call Larson's cube (LC), and now that we see the connection of the atomic spectra and periodic table to the dimens...

Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

The next step in our development of a scalar motion atomic model that can accommodate the energy levels of the atomic spectra, which we have shown to be related to the dimensions, "directions" and format of the tetraktys, is what the LST calls "electron configuration;" that is, we need to show how t...

Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

As far as I know, yesterday was the first time ever, an alternate to the LST's atomic model, based on the Schrodinger wave equation, has ever been published. Of course, it's not going to be acknowledged as such until the day comes when the LST admits that scalar motion is real. Nevertheless, we've c...

Re: Meeting a Terrific Challenge

In the previous post we saw that the atomic spectra of the periodic table of elements has a three-dimensional (four counting zero) characteristic, as clearly shown by mapping the s, p, d and f energy groups to the tetraktys. Moreover, as the dimensions increase, from 0 to 3, the number of elements i...
