Over Integrale Zorg en de Zelf-Ontplooiende Stad (In Dutch)

Dit document is in 2014 geschreven. Het is eerste instantie gebruikt om een nieuwe (meer sociale) strategie voor de ABN AMRO te ontwikkelen. Het is later gebruikt als discussie-stuk toen er sprake was van het oprichten van een coordinerend Centrum voor Vitaliteit in Leiden. Dit centrum was bedoeld om lokale centra op te richten waarbij er aandacht werd besteed aan de samenhang tussen de geestelijke, lichamelijke, sociale en economische gezondheid van de mens in alle levensfasen. Als laatste is een deel gebruikt als discussiestuk voor een Smart City-beleid in Den Haag. Hier werd aangetoond dat Smart City niet alleen een besturingsmodel is … Continue reading Over Integrale Zorg en de Zelf-Ontplooiende Stad (In Dutch)

About Autarky

The amount of local cooperative energy-companies in the Netherlands (in 2012) is increasing. It all has to do with the decrease of the price of solar-sells but there is more at stake. Local energy-companies are part of a movement aimed at Autarky. Autarky is the quality of being self-sufficient. The word Autarky comes from Greek αὐτάρκεια (autárkeia), itself from αὐτός (autós) = self and ἀρκέω (arkéo) which in its passive form means be satisfied, content or “Out of my own Power“. The need to become self-sufficient has certainly to do with the current economic-, ecological- and energy crisis. People are afraid that the supply of vital energy and food … Continue reading About Autarky

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 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 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

A City is an Organism

The System of Life is growing in size and in complexity, and so do the infrastructures sustaining it. In 2008 the point was reached where more than 50% of the world population lives in cities. That percentage is growing. By 2030, over 60% of the world’s population – nearly five billion people – will be living in urban area. The System of Life is generating Super Organisms and the City is one of them. Urbanization is only a relatively recent phenomenon. As far as we now know urbanization started in Mesopotamia around 4000 – 3500 BC. For the Ancient Mesopotamians, … Continue reading A City is an Organism
