As a visionary artist, Jim's unique 'touch' was placed on the research of the Mereon Matrix the day that he and Lynnclaire met, February 14, 1991. Suffice it to say, it was one of those moments...
Seven years later, Jim was the 'guide' for the first Sequoia Symposium, leading fifty scientists and futurists on a four-day exploration of this work. While the knowledge and understanding has expanded greatly, what he wrote about both Mereon and Lynnclaire (below) that week remains valid still.
"She has journeyed for years from one scientific mogul to another, innocently bur firmly presenting her “discovery,” a small but powerfully loaded social invention. From one perspective, Mereon appears to be a ‘designer’ version of the atomic symbol we grew to respect and fear in an earlier incarnation. Change your point of view and the symbol changes as well.
For years Lynnclaire has continued to invite a wide array of academic minds and innovative thinkers to help uncover its meaning and destiny, and this invitation itself, is a key to her many gifts. Her willingness to jump disciplines and paradigms is another, one that invites others, in. During the discussions that follow, Lynnclaire may engage her fellow travelers in compelling exchanges about Mereon, dialogues that may at first seem to throw the assumed and yes, perhaps artificial boundaries of logic and reason out the window. In truth, she and Mereon, unify intuition and reason. The intriguing part about the dialogues and adventures that ensue is the number of dimensions she is willing and able to include in the blink of an eye, demonstrating how we can include an unbelievable number of dimensions in our world at the same time. Her small but loaded dynamic icon, believed by many to be a linked to sound, light, time and matter, exudes precisely the same possibilities.
As such, this dynamic and brilliant matrix is a powerful new linguistic element, fostering a new kind of thinking and a new language. Our present thinking is limited by the language we use, language that is loaded with independent and reinforcing dimensions of activity. Mereon however, evokes thinking much like the first model of our solar system must have, reflecting the wonder one experienced when looking into the mechanism of a twenty-one jeweled watch.
In a world where integrating and unifying the frontier dimensions of thought is so critical to whole systems solutions, Lynnclaire is carrying around a noun that is also a complex verb. Mereon is a dynamic framework for complex relationships, and no matter what label is given to this intriguing graphic engine, the impact remains ‘unifying.’ She is personally, one of the most beautiful and charming things to happen to science in long awhile.
Today her work is being defined in terms of rigorous physics biological, chemical and technical aspects [Elsevier 2013, Dennis et al], is opening many minds into the micro function of mathematics and physical manifestation. Lynnclaire’s job is that of an intelligence agent, one who carries about “the Secret Formula.” Best described, she has discovered the logo of relationships. Mereon is the designer version, and so is she! Anyone who seeks the council of frontier minds will always be recognized as clever. When in the process, they pollinate the flowers with a new thinking tool they have to be thought of as gifted.”
