The Code / Fundamental Pattern - Nature appears to rely on one core recurring pattern to evolve life at every scale What are some of the ways knowledge of the pattern is being applied? Fan and Propeller Technologies Pax Scientific has patented the application of the phi spiral for translating “nature's flow efficiencies into streamlined design geometries.” A small phi-design propeller is able to circulate a million gallon water storage tank in the form of a torus. “New Energy” Devices Many “New Energy” technologies are based on the pattern – they mimic the torus in order to tap energy from the space around us. Philosophy Ashok Gangadean uses the torus to blend the philosophies of East and West, transcending the old worldview where we are all just isolated entities. Non-violent Self Defense The non-violent martial art of Aikido is a philosophy with a physical expression. Aikido means “the way of harmony with life energy.” “Aikido is not a technique to fight and defeat an enemy. Collaborative Tools for Organizations Many organizations are now using process tools based on the pattern.

Octahedrons | Hermes Far Eastern Shining The Octahedrons are Alchymeic Energy Tools based on Hermetic understanding. The Octahedrons are a remarkable new development. They have come at a time when mankind is in great need of restoration to the intuition of Heart awakening. Held within the Divine vision that was seen whilst the Octahedron was being created, was two Fractalisers or pyramids. That polarised current, that awakening condition like shifting poles, allows for the actual birthing of what appears as the Octahedron. In Hermetic Terms, the Octahedrons are the seed of mineral life, upon which everything depends. The Octahedrons do not suffer influence of any kind from the ordinary cosmic world and so do not require cleansing, clearing or recharging. These Divine instruments initiate the touch of the hand of God – how anyone may respond to that touch is an unfathomable mystery and a matter of God’s business. There are seven Octahedrons available (see below). *Please click on each image to read their individual descriptions

By John Rosasco It is often said in recent times that we live in a new world of global competition. Most Americans see the direct correlation between a nation’s economic prosperity and its education systems, however, they are divided about how to improve our students’ math skills — a critical component in global competition. There is a call among math educators for simplification in the introductory algebra course. I. II. High school algebra and geometry have been designed as preparation for calculus. copyright 2009 by John Rosasco

Communiqué de presse : Notre Galaxie et l’écho lumineux du Big Bang révélés par le satellite Planck Crystal system In crystallography, the terms crystal system, crystal family, and lattice system each refer to one of several classes of space groups, lattices, point groups, or crystals. Informally, two crystals tend to be in the same crystal system if they have similar symmetries, though there are many exceptions to this. Crystal systems, crystal families, and lattice systems are similar but slightly different, and there is widespread confusion between them: in particular the trigonal crystal system is often confused with the rhombohedral lattice system, and the term "crystal system" is sometimes used to mean "lattice system" or "crystal family". Space groups and crystals are divided into 7 crystal systems according to their point groups, and into 7 lattice systems according to their Bravais lattices. Five of the crystal systems are essentially the same as five of the lattice systems, but the hexagonal and trigonal crystal systems differ from the hexagonal and rhombohedral lattice systems. ).

Cosmic Law - The Great Law of Nothingness This familiar symbol for Sunyata was made with a single brush stroke by the old zen master Shibayama. It represents a perfect circle, perfection, that is, within the limitations of the always imperfect material world. It conveys the sense of some-thing emanating from no-thing-ness. It represents the vagina, the gateway of birth into manifestation, and also the first moment of the creation of the universe, the big bang, when every thing emerged from the unformed vacuum point. Female precedes male in manifestation just as the x-chromosome precedes the formation of the male y-chromosome in genetic conception. A popular song a few years ago has the phrase, “Nothing comes from Nothing, Nothing ever will.” Notice that it is the successes in life that most of all need to be erased. Every night we go to sleep, we dream a little, and wake up to a new day, fresh and renewed. Religions are born in the desert where there are no distractions.

Nines Updated -- 9 November 2006 Of all the single digit numbers, nine (9) may be the most profound. Composed of three trinities (3 times 3 equals 9), nine represents the principles of the sacred Triad taken to their utmost expression. The Chaldeans believed 9 to be sacred, and kept it apart in their numerology from the other numbers. Nine has been and in some cases still is considered thrice sacred and represents perfection, balance, order -- in effect, the supreme superlative. More information on this topic can be found at the Halexandria Forums. (9/22/9) A late addition to the marvelous world of Nines is a three-dimensional magic... double tetrahedron (or star tetrahedron). In Numerology, the positive characteristics of nine (9) are selflessness, fulfillment, completion, universality, universal understanding, interrelatedness, compassion, idealism tolerance, forgiveness, generosity, benevolence, humanitarianism, emotionalism, and justice. Beethoven wrote 9 symphonies, after which he died.

Four Surprises in Planck’s New Map of the Cosmos : Out There By now you’ve probably heard about the amazing new cosmic snapshot from the European Space Agency’s Planck spacecraft. It is one of those scientific achievements so mind-boggling that you have to spend a bit of time with it to truly appreciate what you are seeing. This is relic radiation from when the universe was 370,000 years old, still all aglow from the Big Bang. The radiation has been traveling 13.8 billion years since then, across ever-expanding stretches of space, before landing in Planck’s detectors. Then it took a tremendous feat of imagination and insight to translate that noisy signal into a comprehensible map of what the universe looked like in its infancy. Lopsided universe: Planck’s new skymap shows that one half of the microwave background is brighter than the other, and the universe has a large cold spot. So let’s step back for a moment, look at how this image came to be, and consider some of the more surprising details hidden within it. The map started out as static.

Jellyfish | Florida | photos Sharks | Jellyfish | Stingrays | Rip Currents Lightning | Red tide | Water Quality | Gulf Water temperatures Sea Lice | General beach safety Moon Jellyfish Cannonball Jellyfish (aka Cabbagehead) Portuguese Man-of-War Sea Nettle Jellyfish Blue button jellyfish Mushroom cap jellyfish Mauve Stinger (Purple Jellyfish) Box Jellyfish Mesoglea (jellyfish tissue) Jellyfish are common in Florida, but they are not everywhere all of the time. Sometimes, in some locations, a large mass of jellyfish will “invade” the beach. Two jellyfish in particular, the Portuguese Man of War, and the box jellyfish (both pictured above) can give a very painful sting. Many jellyfish have tentacles that trail down from their bodies into the water. Some jellyfish have very weak venom, others have extremely potent venom, which upon sufficient exposure, can result in the death of a human. I am not a jellyfish identification expert and I’m sure you aren’t either, so I recommend that you avoid touching jellyfish.

Magic Squares Quickie Introduction A curious arrangement of numbers includes what is referred to as a “magic square”. The magic derives from the fact that numbers arranged in a square of equal sides all add to the same total, coming and going, up and down, and oft times even from an angle (diagonal). Note that the total always adds to 15 (row, column or diagonal), the diagonals no longer necessarily add properly if either the row and/or columns are mixed, and the total of any three rows or columns is 45. More information on this topic can be found at the Halexandria Forums. One can also do a 4x4 magic square, e.g. Here the rows and columns add to 34, but in this particular case the diagonals do not. The 3x3 example above is considered Panmagic, Diabolical, Nasik, or Pandiagonal, while the 4x4 above is merely magic. It is also possible to start with zero, instead of one, so that a possible 5x5 magic square is: The 6x6 magic square is particularly interesting. Here, every number between 1 and 36 is used.
