Canto LXVI Hyperlinked
Throughout the Tale of the Tribe class hosted by the maybelogic Academy and led by Dr. Robert Anton Wilson, the group focused on two major texts: The Cantos of Ezra Pound and "Finnegans Wake" of James Joyce.
During the class I would copy/paste images and hyperlinks to highlight fragments from these two texts, this process gave me the general impression that the communications within FW and Pound's Cantos were compressed and enfolded, CONDENSED, enfolded like an MP3 data-file is enfolded in some sense. I soon discovered that with sufficient attention and magnification utilizing various internet-tools provided FREE at the World Wide Web a much richer and wholesome technicoloured image emerged.
My advice to the brave independent scholar and revolutionary poet tackling arguably two of the most difficult and iconoclastic texts of the 20th century is, first check your posture and breathing and remember your critical water consumption, next begin meditation upon the immediate relationship between the individual and the state. Locating yourself in space/time, geographically, genetically and temporally will ease the initial shock from this meditation. The internet has many FREE tools to help facilitate this process. Use them wisely. Find out for yourself using your own nervous system where and when you are and meditate upon the distinctions between your internal states of mind and the external states mediated by governments, rule of law etc. What distinguishes them from one another?
"By internal disarmament I mean ridding ourselves of all the negative emotions that result in violence. External disarmament will also have to be done gradually, step by step. We must first work on the total abolishment of nuclear weapons and gradually work up to total demilitarisation throughout the world. - Dali Lama, Millenium Message.
As your non-simultaneously interacting nervous-system remains approximately the most accurate and reliable research instrument immediately available to make approx. observations, aim them well and USE the force, use them again and again paying close attention to SYNCHRONICITY and DEJA VU when it manifests. Keep notes. When you set-sail with J.J, EZ and RAW. Keep notes. Start writing if you have not already. If you can enter into these word worlds with an open, cheerful, playful sensibility and remain undaunted by strange KNU languages and KNU-oriented representations you may find personally verifiable nodal-CLUSTERS of meaning. Today nearly a year later i'm thinking about what this means to me reality tunnel systems and how i'm going to communicate them to others?
The personal synchronistic effects i have experienced during and after the official ending of the TOTT class have become further evidence, and relative-proof that there is another kind of mind at work in the universe, different to the predictable and causal ONE i was familiar with - the ONE left over from the dark ages of my Newtonian youth. One may distill the concept of Mindedness in nature as being equally opposite to the idea of mechanical causality running like a chem-trail through many of RAW's Essays, books and teaching tools. Finnegans Wake and The Cantos seem to be minded, that is to say they exhibit mind-like phenomena, sort of non-local information transfer through time/space. The resulting weird effects seem incomprehensible when rationalized by conventional two-valued: cause and effect logical deductions. The synchronistic phenomena sometimes have the qualities of a kind of Magic, sometimes moderate telenoia and sometimes ecstasy depending upon your immediate state of mind. Morpho-genetic theory, as described by Rupert Sheldrake has sufficient space/time IMHO for an adequate scientific proposition capable of propagating nonlocal signals, and therefore to begin constructing better interfacing maps within the scientific community at large and the public. Magikal theories and other mystical schools and traditions have also provided a sufficient foundation for this kind of non-local information transfer and occult interfacing with the sentience of nature. RAW has written extensively upon these Arcane subjects and i recommend consulting his wonderful mixture of science and mysticism for a complete world view of these vast areas human experience. My own presentation here is a collection of personal observations and experiences expressed through deep contemplation upon just three meaningful synchronistic encounters [word/poem/messages] within Pound's Cantos and one [word/poem/message] from the Joyce's Wake. In this particular introduction i'll focus upon Ezra Pound's Canto LXVI. Details of more of my encounters with Joycean synchronicity can be found HERE But what does IT ALL mean?
In August of 2005 i discovered the name of the town where your present author lives; (Stourbridge) on page 184. As has been the case with many British derived word/names there is also a sister/brother town called Sturbridge in Massachusetts, New England, United States of America. It was First settled in 1729 and officially incorporated in 1738 E.V. Today the Rotary Clubs of Stourbridge and Sturbridge are twinned and regularly visit each other. Here is the Joycean cluster around Stourbridge:
"Of course our low hero was a self valeter by choice of need so
up he got up whatever is meant by a stourbridge clay
kitchenette and lithargogalenu fowlhouse for the sake of akes (the
umpple does not fall very far from the dumpertree)"
- Finnegans Wake, part 1, Episode 6. Page 184
A Lithargogalenu maybe derived from the greek lithargyros: a monoxide of lead ore, dross left after smelting lead. What on earth does this mean to me? and to others? Furthermore, genealogically i have discovered that there are various conjunctions of the present authors own surname "Pratt", in the encyclopedic text of FW although it appears compounded within other word/poems. I soon began to sit up, wipe my red-oogles and play more attention to cynchronistic events. After all, is not some fun and excitement about reading litharicher involved with imagining yourself as the protagonist-anntagonist?
A slightly less significant synchronicity but well worth mentioning is that my Christian name is Steven and my middle name James. Made slightly more meaningful within the context of RAW's 1988 book, and TOTT textbook: COINCIDANCE A head test. where he writes on page 5:
"When Joyce feared that he might die without finishing "Finnegans Wake", he selected James Stephens to complete it, not on any literary grounds per se, but because Stephens had been born on the same day as Joyce (2 february 1882) and in the same city (Dublin) - and also because Stephens has the same first name as Joyce (James) and had a last name which differed by only one letter from the first name of Stephen Dedalus, Joyce's self-caricature in A Portrait of the Artist as a young man and Ulysses" - http://www.complete-review.com/reviews/wilsonra/codance.htm
Seventeen days ago, (Artemis 4, 84 p.s.U) while reading the Cantos for a third time i stumbled across Stourbridge in Canto LXVI! What the bloody hell is going on - i thought to meself. What does IT ALL mean? These texts really do seem to behave like minded oracles of some sort? (shut up steven, a voice says, its just meaningless coincidence you silly stouwner.)
"and i went in a post chaise
Woburn Farm, Stowe, Stratford
Stourbridge, Woodstock, High Wycombe and back to
Grosvenor Sq" - Canto LXVI, line 30, Page 380.
After some Googling through Bogipedia and traditional book worming, i discovered the diaries of John Adams and that he once visited England in 1886. He must have stopped off in Stourbridge at some point? maybe to pick up some groceries? I thought it strange that i had not heard word of this visit by the 2nd American president to Stourbridge in my 26 years of living here? It appears from his diaries that JA visited Stratford, Birmingham and Worcestershire also while on cultural exchange trips. The historical fact that John Adams: 2nd president of the United States of America, was impressed enough to write beautiful verse about Stourbridge interests me deeply as a lover of poetry and writing, and this geographical seal provides a kind of space/time portal of discovery for those who wish to look, and a centralized pivot for this essay: locating the epic poem of EZ into both my internal and external experience while asking the question what does IT ALL mean? Has anybody else noticed the changes in the wind recently? MIFOS
Another synchronicity that struck me within Pound's Canto LXVI, is the inclusion of the name/label "Dudley", which just so happily happens to be the name of the Metropolitan Borough in which i presently reside, and that poetically swallowed up Stourbridge into its belly back in 1974 (54 p.s.U). Before this date Stourbridge was incorporated into the ancient parish of Oldswinford. DUDLEY Metropolitan Borough is presently the 2nd most populated "Town" in the United Kingdom and still mushrooming (2006). After research into this i discovered that Pound was probably referring to William Wade Dudley (1842-1909); a soldier in the American civil war, lawyer, government official, Republican campaigner and suspected "crooked" electioneer. Damn, i thought he meant the brute with the castles and the land named after him. However upon further meditation over time here in Dudley Metropolitan Borough, reading the papers and observing the political landscape, it occurred to me in an epiphany! that W.W Dudley shares some characteristic traits with the local lineage of historical "Dudley's" in England: a beautiful garden. Another name for the compounded regions around Dudley used more colloquially is The Black Country, so named according to Occult folk-lore because of the huwdge phalanx of toxic pollutants and super-toxicating by-product waste MATERIAL from our 18-20th century industrialization revolution. What i interpret through the gloss of a gloss of the Cantos to be the experimental exploitation of what is naturally abundant in nature such as water, gas, oil, vegetation and minerals such as coke - (the carbonaceous residue of low-sulfur bituminous coal, not coca-cola for Christ's sake).

- Canto LXVI, Page 384
Lord Coke (1552-1634), the colonial entrepreneur and jurist appears in Pound's "Tale of the tribe" as a heroic entity, a whispering ghost that provides a clear exhibit of a mind in history that Pound can anchor his pirate-shipoem to. Ply over ply. The fact that the word "coke" and the word "Dudley" are seperated by only 4 words in Canto LXVI has dual meanings for my own Blacked Country perception of the Cantos in 2006. (if you ask me there seems to be a conservative neo-liberal labour virus sucking up our common welfare and distributing it to private interests around these shires). And so i have Lord Coke in one sense within my internal "Cantos" matrix, and then, secondly i have the carbonaceous fuel called coke within my immediate external Cantos matrix. But what in the Dickens does this mean and what is to be done?
"A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving". - Lao Zi
Right at the end of Canto LXVI yet another word/poem jumped out at me like Smeagol from behind my geographically self-centered tree of knowledge. Shires appears on the last but one line of the poem as if making sure i'm a well hooked fly. The fossilized poem "shires" is often used to identify many rural areas in England, Australia and America i.e Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire, Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire etc. Readers of J.R.R Tolkien, will be familiar with the Shires and their more traditional context within his imaginative tales. From Tolkien's fantastical glossing and recent cinematic distribution around the whole planet - we can globally perceive how the industrial revolution and industrial expansion programers and "city-planners" have affected the traditional, pre-industrialized rural dwellings of earth. A scenic testament to the country shires once blooming everyware with their wealth of natural abundance. For me LOTR became a great poem animated into moving pictures that had a geographical significance to some of my own sensations within the shires. Pound's Cantos also perceive and administer this relationship between mankind and Nature, but in a different way, albeit with a more metaphysical-like, imagist-like, ideogram-like technique of representation. By brilliantly harpooning various fragments from many different cultures, often rare and bloody notes collected from the ruble around him, Pound brews up a swirling cloud of exhibits that process and enact the pushing and pulling literary vortex created from turning polarities such as mankind and nature, villain and hero, individual and State, poetry and history, individual anarchism and group totalitarianism? and so on and so fourth.
Shire can mean province, district, or region, yet i detect some added spice, maybe from some pipe-smoking Hobbit; that evokes pastoral valleys of snot velvet, vegetation bursting like a billion fountains of light, looking glass landscapes, furry rivers etc. maybe together with a little more imagination, we can evoke GAIA herself - the great Earth mother? Remember that the pitching of two concepts against each other such as Self/state, mankind/nature is limited by being constricted into a two-valued logic sty. Joyce and Pound are both masters of casting thousands of shades and subtle tones in their epic poetry that shatter any two valued conclusions of certainty and introduce 3, 4 and more logic systems of value vortexts that twist and turn like our DNA structures, reflecting and interacting with the reader like astrological forces, changing as cycles unwind cosmically aligned somehow MIFOS? Girodano Bruno provided much original thinking about this. The "hologramic" process appears wonderfully well detonated within Dr. Wilson's book: "Coincidance. A head test." He sometimes calls this phenomena "Holographic prose" but it often escapes identification itself because of ubiquitous presence. Perhaps similar to the ubiquitous presence of consciousness, that fullness of the woid, the optimism within dark matter? Wilson, very much like Joyce and Pound, and often paying exquisite tribute to them explicitly, has incorporated vast amounts of illuminated historical details using his own methodological historicism - his holognomic method and writing to the Universe.

To conclude, I wish to highlight (see above) the positive attributes of historical revisionism as a tool through which poetry becomes a portal for Trippy Cultural Group Archeology. I have found that History observed through the lens of picture/poems, ideograms and song has a structural bond with which to correspond processes in biological nature with rhetorical processes within history. This leads to enacting singing processes, dancing processes, shouting processes - The tale of the tribe. Start writing your own and make it new.

Hi folks, I’m currently collaborating with a small but growing group of web critters led by Mark Pesce. We are a unique decentralized community which will lead--good willing--to the manifestation of a book, scheduled for completion in 2010, based around the emerging hyperintelligence and 'hyperpeople' as defined by Mark Pesce and approximated as sharing culture and the art of sharing.
As sharing is the core of – share this course & share this book – the group have recently alerted me to a change in direction to posting at the blog, that has encouraged me to start sharing some of our work so far and spread the new sharing 'share this course' meme, now, in early December 2009. (and now in March 2010)
Inspired by a cooking analogy with the group-course blog I feel like a particular individual ingredient scattered around the kitchen area or up on a shelf somewhere waiting... to be grated a little, boiled, skinned, fried, charbroiled, roasted, toasted and finally with a bit of luck served-up with a healthy spread of exotic delicacies and shared wisdom.
I’ve been sharing my vision of a new investigation into the historical figures that I think have influenced sharing and the technology of sharing that produced great contributions to all-around-the-world-Humanity, and as a nod to the MLA and the smart tribe of critters that createdits own collective hyper-intelligence, if you like.
I choose to focus on the twelve individuals introduced to us by Dr. Robert Anton Wilson, as the characters who helped shape the - decentralized sharing age -, or simply the 21st century. We can learn from the past efforts to share, and from them create a new historical framework of sharing, one reaching 420 years back to Giordano Bruno and pulling us right up to Marshall McLuhan.
These ideas are pretty complex ideas and come from complex individuals of explicit genius, difficult to approach and shrouded in mystery, this maybe especially true to somebody who has relatively little experience in academic circles, like myself, where much of the solid foundations of this new historical - hyperintelligent tribe – lie, please don't mistake my intellectual pursuits of 'The Tale of the Tribe' as representative of what I think - Share this book - is about. I view this angle of approach concerned with - share this course... the creation of hyperintelligence, unbounded and access-able and sharable by anyone who can access the WWW.
With the power of Internet and the rise of hypersharing culture (hyperdistribution, hyperconnectivity, hyperbolic Geometry) and with the aid of new tools, many minds can congregate together and work quickly, efficiently and humanely, and my ego-drive hope is that others may soon join us in this collective adventure of sharing - sharing - and maybe a few critters will find enough time to follow my historical investigation into the people and ideas that helped to shape intelligent internet and create another alternative guide to sharing - free as the air you breath, and for all-around-the-world-humanity, or as close to the model correlated by Dr. Wilson, a life-long intellectual pursuit but one which I hope will add some spice and sugar to some of the more practical data due to be shared on the course and eventually in the book.
At the blog you'll discover different sharing activity and feedback defining sharing, and you’ll probably find items more to your own fancy, whoever you are. And, if you don’t find anything interesting at the blog then maybe search youtube for Mark Pesce and listen to his hyperflow motion languaging.

Mark Pesce on SHARING in 2009
I find it hard to describe what I’ve learnt this week, but I’ll share some very broad things’ I started to learn about more deeply just today after reading Mark’s ‘Hyperpeople’. In particular…. “MP3 recording uses a mathematical technique known as Fourier Transforms to break an audio signal into its constituent sound waves. It’s like a chord played on a guitar: you can think of a chord as a set of individual strings being played simultaneously.” This caused me to think of Claude Shannon, and led me, via a quick wiki search to revisit some fascinating info’ at wiki describing his contributions to the ‘digital age, and the technology of sharing?
To my mind, today, I kind of learnt that good poetry’ has a resonance with the Fourier Transform, and music too by way of the sweet chord-analogy made by Mark. I’m not sure I have fully processed and learn’t about Fourier transforms, but I have found a new field of interest I feel worthy of deeper investigation and sharing here as an example. I also learnt a little about Giordano Bruno, Nietzsche, Giambattista Vico, James Joyce, McLuhan and Claude Shannon and what they have in common with my own warped interpretation of some parts of ‘Hyperpeople’. Furthermore, I feel that, although Internet may have no historical precedent, certain individuals have a strong resonance with the world wide web. Today I learn’t why Nietzsche and Shannon, in particular, are important historical figures, kick-started by thoughts inspired while reading ‘hyperpeople’ if… we were to fiddle with historical events, contrasted with the current refreshing focus on the present 2009 – scenario-universe.
I shd/ come clean here though, friends, and confess that I’m not an academic, a Phd, or a University student, but I’m probably best classed in the realm of the drop-out I guess. --Fly, Share This Course.

OUR HISTORYS BACK BY Fly Agaric 23:
Before Dr. Robert Anton Wilson graduated life in early 2007 he shared with the world a tantalizing glimpse into an epic project that he called ‘the tale of the tribe' (TTOTT): the blueprint for a new synthesis of some of the greatest minds of the 21st century, uniting quantum mechanics, neuro-semantics, design-science, Ideogramic method, history and culture, together into a typically RAW montage' of forces and values to help others distinguish useful information from all the bullshit. The historical characters or 'evolutionists' from RAW's TTOTT krewe were individuals that helped to speed up the ability of humans to condense ideas and then share information, that has directed humanity into the - information age - and the sharing mass-age. In Our Historys Back' fly has designed an environment based in 1936 where these TTOTT characters can blend their creative genius and fall into orbit with one another; poets, linguists, logicians, design-scientists and artists meet to share their wisdom on advancing humanity into the 21st century. New creative research into the tale of the tribe aims to open up a new vista of interpretations from the fragments left to us by Dr. Wilson. And this adaptation of Dr. Wilson's 'tale of the tribe' is the first such project, to my knowledge, to tackle TTOTT lineage and place some characters into a new Novel architecture. I hope that this project will at least encourage some of you who are on a similar road of investigation and nudge-nudge - create your own TTOTT synthesis.
Our Historys Back’ features remixed 'TTOTT' characters rounded into a tale within a tale by our protagonists. The tale within a tale follows a band of old bards who journey to the 1936 Olympic Games into the sick-heart of the Nazi intelligence games to boldly state their perfected word and communicate their sporting peace to all nations on behalf of artists, painters and poets worldwide. Standing in their way are a sordid alliance of spies from many nations including English, American, German, Canadian and Soviet agents; who have arranged to meet in Berlin to finalize their annual guns, dope and intelligence 'trade off'
Max, Percy and Plush are three friends living in Amsterdam, 2012, united by their synchronistic interest in RAW's ‘tale of the tribe’ and producing their own story that includes a culture’s hierarchy of values and histories. Plush has perfected his turntable-altable method of mixing and cutting specially crafted LP’s, that contain pre-recorded samples from the 1936 tale and afterwards, together with Max and Percy, they splice the recordings into dialogue and a dramatic sequence of events. The MPHDJ Method translates roughly as mixing special kinds of sampled literature using the approach of a musical DJ or turntablist.
The 1936 tale spans 48 hours and three main locations, taking place in theatres in New York and Rapallo’ simultaneously on July 31st', and then moving to Berlin and the opening of the IXth Olympic Games on August 1st. The recurring theme of the story is probably the precept of ‘ language versus the equation’, translated into how the characters share their different fields of experience and wisdom creating a communication network, to help others bring a new peace to Europe through a linguistic relativism, a new language to help facilitate peace and communication between all nations and humanity.
--Steven "fly" Pratt.
28th October. 2009. Amsterdam.
Both psycho-somatically and geo-politically, open-source-flow of LANGUAGE processing and communications are critical for a healthy co-operative open society. F.W and the Cantos pry open the barrels of world language and give us our “Tale of the Tribe”; a tale of humanity – warts and all - that dislocates and relocates history into a new language of truth beauty and meaning beyond the linear - Aristotelian based - alphabetic cipher.
You have to feel and breathe with these texts and then, i bet you, if you just continue something will jump off the page and begin YOUR particular reading, an illuminated detail, an epiphany and a synchronicity will follow if you pay attention and keep an open mind. The rewards from reading in this way and from reading both these books in combination with internet search engines and vast document archives, and, if you can dig it, writings of Dr. Robert Anton Wilson, you have a platform,an axis, a foundation for tackling the alphapocalypse of culture and language that i perceive to be moments away, and in synchrony with the singularity i call timewave 6012.
John Adams is a major figure within Pound’s Cantos, and this is why both Stourbridge and Amsterdam appear in the Cantos – John Adams visit to Europe during the 1780’s during which time he encountered the banking and trade chiefs of Holland and England, among other countries and wrote things about florins, Pounds, Guilders; who distributes them and how. Pound weaves writing of American presidents together, writing and thoughts critically compared, all about Europe, empire, commerce, war and banking. All with Chinese equivalences, Persian equivalences, Roman, Greek, German and Egyptian equivalences, all dancing together on the page, wrestling to make sense of the world at war, world commerce, world empire and a world language flexible yet precise enough to contain it all in a single text by a single author.
A 2012 movie shall be made to reflect the positive transformation possibly due around about 21st December 2012.
(JackY Muller, Manfred Humanski and James Shermon are talking about the CUBE).
JACK MULLER: A vectorial-edged cube collapses. The cube's corner flexibility can be frustrated only by triangulation. Each of the four corners of the cube's six faces could be structurally stabilized with small triangular gussets, of which there would be 24, with the long edge structurals acting as powerful levers against the small triangles. The complete standard stabilization of the cube can be accomplished with a minimum of six additional members in the form of six structural struts placed diagonally, corner to comer, in each of the six square faces, with four of the cube's eight corner vertexes so interconnected. These six, end-interconnected diagonals are the six edges of a tetrahedron. The most efficiently stabilized cubical form is accomplished with the prime structural system of Universe: the tetrahedron."
system geometrically. Messages and the corresponding signals are
points in two “function spaces,” and the modulation process is a
mapping of one space into the other. Using this representation, a
number of results in communication theory are deduced concerning
expansion and compression of bandwidth and the threshold
effect. Formulas are found for the maximum rate of transmission
of binary digits over a system when the signal is perturbed by
various types of noise. Some of the properties of “ideal” systems
which transmit at this maximum rate are discussed. The equivalent
number of binary digits per second for certain information sources is calculated.
JACKY MULLER: Because of the structural integrity of the blackboard or paper on which they may be schematically pictured, the cubically profiled form can exist, but only as an experienceable, forms-suggesting picture, induced by lines deposited in chalk, or ink, or lead, accomplished by the sketching individual with only 12 of the compression- representing strut edge members interjoined by eight flexible vertex fastenings.
JAMES SHERMON: If noise is added to the signal in transmission, it means
that the point corresponding to the signal has been moved a
certain distance in the space proportional to the rms value of
the noise. Thus noise produces a small region of uncertainty
about each point in the space. A fixed distortion in the
channel corresponds to a warping of the space, so that each
point is moved, but in a definite fixed way.
JACKY MULLER: The accomplishment of experienceable, structurally stabilized cubes with a minimum of nonredundant structural components will always and only consist of one equiangled and equiedged "regular" tetrahedron on each of whose four faces are congruently superimposed asymmetrical tetrahedra, one of whose four triangular faces is equiangled and therefore congruently superimposable on each of the four faces of the regular tetrahedron; while the four asymmetrical superimposed tetrahedra's other three triangular__and outwardly exposed__faces are all similar isosceles triangles, each with two 45-degree-angle corners and one corner of 90 degrees. Wherefore, around each of the outermost exposed corners of the asymmetrical tetrahedra, we also find three 90-degree angles which account for four of the cube's eight corners; while the other four 90-degree surrounded corners of the cube consist of pairs of 45-degree corners of the four asymmetric tetrahedra that were superimposed upon the central regular tetrahedron to form the stabilized cube.
JAMES SHERMON: We now consider the function of the transmitter from
this geometrical standpoint. The input to the transmitter is
a message; that is, one point in the message space. Its output
is a signal—one point in the signal space. Whatever form
of encoding or modulation is performed, the transmitter
must establish some correspondence between the points in
the two spaces. Every point in the message space must
correspond to a point in the signal space, and no two
messages can correspond to the same signal. If they did,
there would be no way to determine at the receiver which
of the two messages was intended. The geometrical name
for such a correspondence is a mapping. The transmitter
maps the message space into the signal space.
JACKY MULLER: In short, structurally stabilized (and otherwise unstable) cubes are always and only the most simply compact aggregation of one symmetrical and four asymmetrical tetrahedra. Likewise considered, a dodecahedron may not be a cognizable entity-integrity, or be rememberable or recognizable as a regenerative entity, unless it is omnistabilized by omnitriangulation of its systematic subdivision of all Universe into either and both insideness and outsideness, with a small remainder of Universe to be discretely invested into the system-entity's structural integrity. No energy action in Universe would bring about a blackboard-suggested pentagonal necklace, let alone 12 pentagons collected edge to edge to superficially outline a dodecahedron. The dodecahedron is a demonstrable entity only when its 12 pentagonal faces are subdivided into five triangles, each of which is formed by introducing into each pentagon five struts radiating unitedly from the pentagons' centers to their five comer vertexes, of which vertexes the dodecahedron has 20 in all, to whose number when structurally stabilized must be added the 12 new pentagonal center vertexes. This gives the minimally, nonredundantly structural dodecahedron 32 vertexes, 60 faces, and 90 strut lines. In the same way, a structural cube has 12 triangular vertexes, 8 faces, and 18 linear struts.
JAMES SHERMON: This type of mapping, due to the mathematician Cantor,
can easily be extended as far as we wish in the direction of
reducing dimensionality. A space of n' dimensions can be
mapped in a one-to-one way into a space of one dimension.
Physically, this means that the frequency-time product can
be reduced as far as we wish when there is no noise, with
exact recovery of the original messages.
JACKY MULLER: The vector equilibrium may not be referred to as a stabilized structure except when six struts are inserted as diagonal triangulators in its six square faces, wherefore the topological description of the vector equilibrium always must be 12 vertexes, 20 (triangular) faces, and 30 linear struts, which is also the topological description of the icosahedron, which is exactly what the six triangulating diagonals that have hypotenusal diagonal vectors longer than the square edge vectors bring about when their greater force shrinks them to equilength with the other 24 edge struts. This interlinkage transforms the vector equilibrium's complex symmetry of six squares and eight equiangled triangles into the simplex symmetry of the icosahedron.
