A Harmonic Universe
Mathematical Elegance, Solid Science and Social Grace
Max Planck once said that ‘Anybody who has been seriously engaged in scientific work of any kind realizes that over the entrance to the gates of the temple of science are written the words: “Ye must have faith.” (Max Planck, 1932, wikiquote-1).
Introducing the Mereon Matrix with this quote is to state a paradox, for while it is an earned honour to be allowed entrance into the ‘temple of science’, ‘faith’ is a mere shadow of a state that is far more powerful. A single concept, a Pattern, has been under scientific investigation since 1995. At the centre of our understanding there resides one word: perspective. In its presence we are released from the darkness of ignorance and bias as hidden truth is revealed and illumined. What sustains our team are the scientific principles of doubt and knowledge. It is this that has allowed us to let the Mereon Matrix speak for itself. Through multiple challenges, it has been mapped, with every prediction supported and fulfilled. Every point, edge, face and form confirms the theory about the unitive nature of this template.
If you were to conduct a man-on-the-street interview and ask respondents ‘Where do you go for answers to resolve moral and ethical dilemmas’, few are likely to answer, ‘To science, of course.’ It is generally believed that science describes the properties, characteristics and forces underlying the fundamental nature of ‘what is’, and that moral and ethical questions require a ‘higher’ source. The Mereon Matrix compels re-examining the veracity of these assumptions. Most think of life as com- ing from life. However, a living system is undoubtedly a development from non-life. The ontological conclusion is this; since ethical and moral questions apply to human life, the commonly held belief that there is a need for a ‘greater authority’ than science suggests that the basis for this assumption is erroneous.
The Mereon Matrix allows simultaneity of logical and meaningful perspectives by connecting two seemingly contradictory aspects of our world: unity and paradox. What provides the bridge that unites diverse perspectives is a Pattern of patterns, a dynamic ligature that arises from a geometrical milieu, its complex elements in common with living and life-like systems.
This connection between living and non-living systems is an intrinsic part of the Gaia theory/principle formulated by scientist and environmentalist James Lovelock in the 1960s and co-developed by microbiologist Lynn Margulis in the 1970s. Lovelock (2003) proposes that all living systems and by extension, the life-like organisations they build, interact with the inorganic matter on and around Earth. It supposes that together we form a self-regulating, complex system that participates in sustaining the environmental conditions necessary for life on our home planet. Lovelock (2003) says (shortened to emphasise message):
"The Earth system is elderly and we should treat it with respect and care . . . reconciles current thinking in evolutionary biology .... It extends, not contradicts, Darwin’s vision just as relativity enhances, not denies, Newtonian physics . . . we are part of it and . . . human rights are constrained by the needs of our planetary partners."
In August 2012, we began exploring frequencies related to the mathematics of the Mereon Matrix using a new cymatic technology known as the CymaScope. Experimental results of making these particular sounds visible in water led us to anticipate that this work would lead to an emergent science.
Below you will observe how the inaudible has made the invisible visible.
