Logo

Post by bperet » Thu Nov 29, 2018 6:24 pm

Anyone have any suggestions for a logo for the Reciprocal System Research Society?

I've been using the old B&W yin-yang logo that Nehru came up with 30 years ago, so thinking it is time to modernize.

The logo should express the basic, reciprocal relation between space and time or the material and cosmic.

Any ideas, please reply.

I love a design challenge! Let me see what I can come up with...

Or should there be a line of colour along the S-line intersection between space and time, indicating colour is between black and white, something like this rougher effort?

How about one of these two as the new system logo? Perhaps with the color wheels within the yin/yang divisions somewhat larger?

Great idea wsitze, although since the photon is really a quaternion I think we could have the yin yang in four quadrants, giving us some similarity to the antiquatis logo. We may not need the text at all but i've added it to this version:

Instead of the 4 small spheres with the nox/lux colour wheels we could add in something else that is complimentary perhaps? Or maybe just keep it simple, rever to standard yin-yang, increase colour fringes as you suggest and remove the text...?

I like the four quadrants as you have shown, How about placing the text around the outside of upper periphery?

Just remember that logos tend to be small, like the RS2 logo on the top left of the screen. That can make text a bit unreadable.

The quadrant model, though fitting, does tend to lose the taijitu symbolism and hence the yin-yang relationship.

For the colors, rather than rotating the Newtonian spectrum (RGBW), perhaps introduce it's reciprocal, Goethe's spectrum (CMYK), along the lines of the Photon 2.0 research?

I think the four quadrants express the multiple cycles between the material and cosmic sectors better. The text can remain as it is at the top to the right of logo. How about displaying the color wheels two as RGBW and two as CMYK in the appropriate quadrants?

Personally, I would like to see the yin-yang terminology replaced with something less reminiscent of mysticism. We are, after all, trying to overcome the misdirection of mainstream physics.

Sounds reasonable. Nehru's original sketch was two "inverse" galaxies intertwined in a yin-yang fashion, though it was designed B&W for printing and was difficult, as the black galaxy used a lot of ink in those days.

If you're going with quadration, should find a way to express the macrocosm/microcosm as well as the material/cosmic. Microcosm being the time and space regions, the atomic configuration.

OK, let's keep it simple, as you have already defined the terms: Material, or STTR; Cosmic, or TSSR; microcosm, atomic, or TRSR; and macrocosm, conjugate atomic (con-atomic or some other definition?) or STTS.
