About Alchemy and Logic

This blog is about Logic, Alchemy and the relationship between Logic and Alchemy. Classic Logic is based on the Square of Opposition of Aristotle. This square was discussed for more than 2000 years. Recently scientists detected that the Square is really a Cube. It misses an extra dimension. The Square describes  the six oppositions (“dual combinations”) of possibility (“some”, Particular Affirmative), necessity (“all”, Universal Affirmative), not-possibility (“not some”, Particular Negative) and not-necessity (“not all”, Universal Negative). Geometric Logic is a part of Modal Logic which is a part of Logic. In Geometric Logic the Linguistic Representations of Logic are mapped to … Continue reading About Alchemy and Logic

About the Next Steps of the Future Center Smart Systems and the Leiden Center of Data Science

At 28-4-2014 the Future Center Smart Systems (FCSS) was launched At the same moment the Leiden Center of Data Science (LCDS) was announced. This is not a coincidence. FCSS and LCDS are two parts of the same coin. LCDS is focused on the Science of Data and FCSS is focused on using the results of the Science of Data to build Smart Systems or to give the Science of Data interesting problems to solve. FCSS is Practice and LCDS is theory. When we look at Wikipedia we see that the Data Sciences are defined as “The study of the generalizable … Continue reading About the Next Steps of the Future Center Smart Systems and the Leiden Center of Data Science

About Intelligent Design

Thermodynamics, the Science of Heat, became an important science in the 19th century when physicists started to improve the Steam-Machine. This blog is about a recently discovered law of Thermodynamics called the Constructal Law. The Constructal Law describes How Intelligent Systems emerge out of the Laws of Thermodynamics. According to Thermodynamics the evolution of the universe has been characterized by an on-going transformation from a simple, restricted, highly condensed, homogeneous state (the Big Bang) to an increasingly complex, widely dispersed, dynamic, multipotent, granular diversity. Energy always moves from High to Low Temperature. This is the main reason why most of … Continue reading About Intelligent Design

Over Veerkracht (Resilience) (in Dutch)

De leer van de thermodynamica is in de 19e eeuw ontstaan uit natuurkundig onderzoek dat werd uitgevoerd om de efficiëntie van de stoommachine te verbeteren. Inmiddels heeft deze wetenschap belangrijke wetten over het Universum ontdekt. Volgens de thermodynamica beweegt de energie in het Universum op de lange termijn zich van een onmogelijke extreem hete situatie, de Big Bang, naar een toestand van extreme kou en een hoge waarschijnlijkheid, de Big Freeze, waarin alles netjes uniform verdeeld is. Het universum beweegt van extreme chaos naar extreme ordening. Energie stroomt daarom altijd van hoge (chaos) naar lage temperatuur (orde). Vrijwel alle energie op aarde komt van de zon … Continue reading Over Veerkracht (Resilience) (in Dutch)

About Perspective

Introduction When we Look with our Eyes and not with our Mind we can See that Space looks very different from what we Think it is. In Our Space Parallel Lines meet at Infinity. Around 1400 during the Renaissance Painters started to look at Space with their own Eyes and discovered the Rules of Perspective Drawing. Between 1600-1800 Perspective Theory changed from a Theory of Art to a Theory of Mathematics called Projective Geometry. It took 400 Years before a few Mathematicians realized that Projective Geometry was the Foundation of Mathematics and it took another 100 years before Projective Geometry started to … Continue reading About Perspective

About Number and Magnitude

We have lost the relationship between Number and Form or Number and Magnitude as the Ancient Greeks called their Forms. A few years ago a Revolution in Mathematics and Physics has started. This revolution is caused by Geometric Algebra. In Geometric Algebra the Ancient Theories of Euclid and Pythagoras are reevaluated. Numbers are Scalar (Quantum) Movements of Geometric Patterns and not Static Symbols of Abstractions that have nothing to do with our Reality. Movements and not Forces are the Essence of Physics. The basic rule Movement = Space/Time (v=s/t) shows that  Time and Space are two Reciprocal 3D-Spaces. Our Senses … Continue reading About Number and Magnitude

About the Vedic Square

This blog is about the Cycle of Nine implemented in the Digital Root or Modulus 9-Function. The Digital Root generates many Patterns that were used in Ancient Architectures. One of the most important Digital Root Patterns is the Vedic Square. It is the Digital Root of the Multiplication Table of the numbers 1 to 9. This Table contains the Harmonics of the Numbers 1 to 9. These Harmonics are highly related to the Harmonic Pattern behind the Cycles in our Universe. The first part of this Blog is about the Digital Root. It contains the patterns that are behind the … Continue reading About the Vedic Square

About Mystical Number Theory and Pascal’s Triangle

The first part of this Blog is about the Triangular numbers, related to the Number 3, the Holy Trinity. The second part shows that Pascal’s Triangle (called Meru’s Mountain in Mystics), the Binomial Expansion,  contains every Possible Mystical Number Pattern (including the Triangular Numbers) you can Imagine. Pascal Triangle also shows that our Universe is a combinatorial miracle. It explores every possibility, is always in balance, expands and moves back to the beginning which is and was the Void, the Empty Set, the merge of Every Paradox, that is Possible. About Mystical Number-Patterns The Sēpher Yəṣîrâh (Book of Formation or Book … Continue reading About Mystical Number Theory and Pascal’s Triangle

About Saturn, the Son of the Sun

Early astronomical traditions identify the “Primeval Sun” as the planet Saturn. Saturn was id]]><![CDATA[entified with Osiris in Egypt and Shiva in India.  The Babylonians, the founders of Astronomy, called Saturn the "Light of Heaven, the Sun-God Shamash (or Šamaš). Tacitus records the Jews as worshipping the planet Saturn, Shabbatai,  as their god. In Plato’s Timaeus, the word for the planet Saturn is Helios, the “Sun” god. Popular Greek traditions identified Saturn as Kronos (Father Time). At that time Saturn ruled “over the Pole“. The Pole was seen as the Entrance to the Other World. The Shaman using his Light Body had … Continue reading About Saturn, the Son of the Sun

About the Sum of Things

The Lo Shu is a Chinese Model for Time and was used to design Cities, Temples, Cycles and Calendars. The Lo Shu is a 3×3 Magic Square created by Fu Xi, the Founder of Chinese Civilization. Fu Xi lived around the time of the Great Flood. The Magic Square was carried by a Turtle. The Turtle is the symbol of the Constellation Orion. Many Ancient Cultures claim that our Ancestors came from this constellation. The Square of Lo Shu is also referred to as the Magic Square of Saturn or Chronos (Time). According to Chinese Creation Myth  the world started with 無極 … Continue reading About the Sum of Things
