Transparency is an illusion.
Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth, at least the
truth that is given us to understand. (Picasso)

Geometry for the 21st Century
I hate math, I hate math, I ate math!
~"you are what you eat"
I hate math, I hate math, I don't want to know!
~"ignorance is bliss"
I hate math, I hate math, numbers be gone!
~"well kid, are you feeling lucky?"
I hate math, I hate math, my account is overdrawn!
~"what goes around, comes around"
I hate math, I hate math, it's my teacher's fault!
~"a stitch in time, saves nine"
I hate math, I hate math, why are there clocks?
~"Johnnie come lately," "forget me not"
I hate math, I hate math, where are the laughs?
~"he/she who laughs last, laughs best"
I hate math, I hate math, rules are for fools!
~"it must be tough living in your body"
I hate math, I hate math, it doesn't get me high!
~"reach beyond your grasp" (at least for the sky)
I hate math, I hate math, just give me love!
~"Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song & make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better"
-Beatles I love math!
Ok, so ISL means Inverse Square Law ...I get that
...but why should I care?
~Why? Because it affects everything ...
and I do mean everything ...you do in life!
Oh really! And like I seem to have gotten along just fine
without knowing a single thing about it!
~Consciousness is a tricky thing. Let's face it,
if Nature ever wanted to rid herself of the likes of
us all she would have to do is uncheck the auto-pilot
setting and instead leave us to full manual control
via our consciousness (not to mention that other demon
...conscience). Most of us wouldn't last the weekend.
Oh my, so now are you going to tell me that I am
not only ignorant of the ISL, but in general too stupid
or lazy to learn?
~Not at all! Your not stupid ...in fact, you are
brilliant ...at least potentially so. Ignorant? We all
are to various degrees. Lazy? Well, each to their own.
Most of us need ...and want ...a stimulus to kick in and
motivate our free-will. Be it for food, shelter, love,
sex, curiosity or just plain entertainment, there's
going to be a cost to plug in my brain ...and it had
better be worth the pain of going off auto-pilot.
Ok, Yoda! Give me the pain. But, for crying out loud, keep it brief!
~Alright, here's a short list of 5 things governed
by the ISL. You let me know if you can forgo any one of them.
1. gravitational } force
2. electromagnetic } force
3. light } intensity
4. radiation } intensity
5. sound } intensity
In short, any point source that emanates energy ...
or its effects as force, intensity, density, etc ...diminishes
as the square of the distance from it. This is a direct
manifestation of a simple geometric principle of spheres.
With the point source at the center, doubling the
radius of a sphere, quadruples its surface area ...diluting
the concentration of the point source over a larger
area. This point source distribution law is universal.
It is fundamental to all matter and energy fields. It is
thus fundamental to all spacetime. Its fundamental nature
is often masked once the single point source becomes
mixed amongst other point sources, becoming part of
an array of sources whose effects become additive, subtractive,
or neutralized like any interference pattern is wanton to do.
Pull the plug on the dynamics of the ISL and goodbye Universe.
Oh, I see. So now that I have a reason for my actions
...an actual guide for my being (a.k.a. "The Hitchhiker's
Guide to the Universe"-Douglas Adams) ...of what possible interest
...esoteric or otherwise ...would I, or anyone else,
have in some numbers on a square chart? Numbers that
don't look like they even belong to the ISL?
~What if you were to discover that all the numbers
belong to and are on the chart ...and this includes both
the odd and even numbers, and the prime and non-prime
numbers ...but that only the non-primes and
the even numbers not evenly divisible by 4 ....are
emphatically on the inner chart? Furthermore, they
all are related directly to the ISL
Ok, I'll bite! I'll tell you what. If you can restate
that in some orderly way that I can get my head around it
...and in just a few lines ...I will read on. Got it?
Even & Odd Numbers on the Grid
Oh, maybe you were MIA when I said give me something
to work with here ...not just a layout ...but something
about how and why these inner grid numbers are worthy of
~Every single patterned number within the inner
grid speaks to, relates to, interconnects with, every
other single patterned number, and specifically relates
back to the ISL Diagonal, on the entire chart from zero
to infinity in a vast ...perhaps infinite ...multitude
Every possible number is on the axis of the grid. Every
possible square of those same axis numbers is on the
ISL Diagonal of that grid. Between the two ...within
the SIG ...are these patterned numbers that build
that ISL Diagonal.
They are like the deconstructed child patterns of the
parent ISL pattern. And they are full of life. They add,
subtract, divide, and multiply. They form families, primary
and extended, that reside in specific neighborhoods, forming
local towns and cities ...all that relate back to their
central parent pattern, the ISL Diagonal.
Within this culture of the unity of diversity (after all,
every number is unique), we see the great organizing
principle of symmetry fully in play. Geometric patterns
of clusters of numbers are mirrored symmetrically across
Astoundingly, within this patterned gestalt arises yet
another mainstay of mathematical thought ...the Pythagorean
Theorem. The grid is practically made of Pythagorean Triangles
...you know, wherein a right triangle, the sum of the sides
squared equals the hypotenuse squared.
In fact, all sorts of triangular relationships are embedded,
not the least of which is The Periodic Table of Primes (PTOP).
The PTOP, it is asserted, proves Euhler's strong form of the
Goldbach Conjecture ...that every even number is the sum of
two prime numbers. (Yes, we are getting out there.) You are
just going to have to refer to Brooks (Base) Square.
It is the basis for The Architecture of SpaceTime (TAOST) itself.
I hate math, I hate math, just give me love!
~"Hey Jude, don't be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better"
I love math!
This is the truth ...the whole truth and nothing but the truth
...at least as I understand it.
Brooks (Base) Square
