According to ancient Mayan beliefs the Cosmos was made up by Nine Underworlds. This fundamental idea was expressed very powerfully through their most important pyramids, the Pyramid of the Plumed Serpent in Chichen-Itza, the Pyramid of the Jaguar in Tikal and the Temple of the Inscriptions in Palenque, which were all built with Nine different stories. Now where are these Nine Underworlds? the modern person may ask. Being currently unable to observe this aspect of reality people have in recent centuries for the most part tended to dismiss such ancient myths of different worlds as mere myths or fantasies. If we seek to dismiss the idea of the Nine Underworlds as a mere myth it however becomes difficult to dismiss such ancient myths of different worlds as mere myths or fantasies.
@ ledzep23 : "I was referring to the effects of particles combining after the Big Bang!(If any) That's one of the things they're trying to do, right?" Particles combine(d) in different ways at different times after the Big Bang. The LHC is working at an energy scale that is close to the Big Bang but not close enough for quantum gravity effects to be significant. "They're trying to find the Higgs Boson and something that has to do with Anti Matter, etc."
Jesse Thorn writes in with word of a cool podcast I hadn't checked out before, " 99% Invisible "— Roman Mars is a very accomplished and well-regarded public radio producer based in the Bay Area. He just started the second season of his show 99% Invisible. Each episode is a beautiful, rich look at one tiny corner of our lives through the lens of design.
The generic structure of an alpha amino acid in its un-ionized form Amino acids ( pron.: / ə ˈ m iː n oʊ / , / ə ˈ m aɪ n oʊ / , or / ˈ æ m ɪ n oʊ / ) are biologically important organic compounds made from amine (-NH 2 ) and carboxylic acid (-COOH) functional groups , along with a side-chain specific to each amino acid. The key elements of an amino acid are carbon , hydrogen , oxygen , and nitrogen , though other elements are found in the side-chains of certain amino acids. About 500 amino acids are known [ 1 ] and can be classified in many ways. Structurally they can be classified according to the functional groups' locations as alpha- (α-), beta- (β-), gamma- (γ-) or delta- (δ-) amino acids; other categories relate to polarity , pH level, and side chain group type ( aliphatic , acyclic, aromatic, containing hydroxyl or sulphur, et al.).

The Body Mandala is surrounded by crescent-shaped areas, which are the offering grounds. Next follow circles which represent the elements: earth (yellow), water (white), fire (pink/red), wind (gray/black) and space (green). The outermost circle is the "Great Protective Circle", "Mountain of Flames" or "Circle of Wisdom" which represents the wisdom element.
(Overcoming Death Mandala) A mandala, or circle, is a representation of the Buddhist universe. These cosmograms represent in symbolic color, line, and geometric forms, all realms of existence and are used in Tantric meditation and initiation rites. The creation of a mandala, considered a consecrated area, is believed to benefit all beings.

The Good ( Creation ) and the not-Good, the Bad ( Destruction ), are two Waves that are moving in Opposite Directions. Together they create interference patterns called Standing Waves. Standing Waves are Waves that preserve their Form and can be perceived as Material Particles. If the Good is a Wave Moving with the Clock, the Bad is a Wave Moving Against the Clock. I believe the Good is moving with the Clock because the words “Right ” and “ Wrong ” were associated with the Right Hand and the Left Hand and the concept “ moving ” (wringen in Dutch). In Magic the Left Hand Path is associated with Black Magic and in many cultures the Left is associated with Evil.
Spiral waves are fascinating patterns that have been observed in many experiments. Examples of such experiments are the famous Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction and the oxidation of carbon-monoxide on platinum surfaces. Spiral waves have also been observed in numerical simulations of reaction-diffusion systems in planar domains. The pictures and movies below are from numerical simulations that we ran using the program EZ-SPIRAL written by Dwight Barkley (University of Warwick). My work in this area is done in collaboration with Arnd Scheel (U Minnesota). Rigidly-rotating waves
What do mathematicians, architects, sculptors, biologists, and graphic designers have in common? They all use what is perhaps the most interesting number in mathematics: the Golden Mean, also called the Golden Ratio and the Golden Section. Approximated as 1.618, the Golden Mean plays a prominent role in math, science, and art.
