“The (8-dimensional) E8 Lattice … to generate that 3D quasicrystal, the substructure at the pixelated fabric of reality, we project this 8D crystal to 4D, and then we convert that to 3D. … just like the basic shape of the 3D cubic lattice is the cube, the cell shape of the E8 lattice is an 8D shape with 240 vertices. We call it the Gosset Polytope. When the Gosset Polytope is projected to 4D, it becomes two identical shapes of different sizes. The ratio of their sizes is … 0.618 (the Golden Ratio.)”

The video – after mercilessly exploding a cubic lattice made of Zometool, tsk, tsk! – then references the appearance of the Golden Ratio in an equilateral triangle inscribed in a circle which we have documented on this website for many years.

“The Golden Ratio may be the fundamental constant of nature. … It is weirdly ubiquitous in the universe, appearing everywhere from the quantum to celestial scales. … it appears in black holes. The golden ratio is the precise point where a black hole’s modified specific heat changes from positive to negative.Ø = (M^4) / (J^2)… and it is part of the equation for the lower bound on black hole entropy. The golden ratio even relates the loop quantum gravity parameter to black hole entropy.Ø = 2 ^ (π𝛾)… Why does this support the claim that the golden ratio is the fundamental constant of nature? Because a theory of everything must unite general relativity with quantum mechanics and a black hole is where these two theories converge at their limits.”

*“Meaning is subjective and requires choice.”* … Seems like physics is treading on metaphysical turf again. Fun!

To dive a bit deeper into the projected polyhedral shape (which evidently resolves to an icosidodecahedron), check out this cool video – featuring Klee Irwin of Quantum Gravity Research – (“The 20-Group Twist”.)

For further detail, check out this video: “Quantum Gravity Research: an Overview Presented by Klee Irwin.”

Lots more to learn and explore… Here is Ed Kellogg’s commentary (quoted below) that initiated this post … It goes without saying that there are numerous disciplines requiring massive amounts of study to understand all this that I have barely scratched the surface on, but it sure is interesting!

“I felt glad to see this model incorporates E8 theory. I met Garrett Lisi when I attended his presentation on E8 theory (“

An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything”) when I went to the 2010 Joint Mathematics Conference in San Francisco years back and felt quite impressed, but had heard nothing since. (See attached paper and check out this video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xHw9zcCvRQ ).I really enjoyed QGR’s ”What Is Reality” video, as it brings together a whole set of variable’s I’ve had an interest in – sacred geometry, consciousness, the golden ratio, the universe represented in a pixilated interface, derived from a non-local beyond time and space information matrix code, etc. all integrated into one congruent and entertaining presentation.

I especially found it quite cool that the golden ratio pops up as the ratio between the two sizes of the projection of the 8D Gosset polytope (from E8 theory) onto 4D – I’d never heard of that.

… check out this paper also: “Quantum Walk on a Spin Network and the

Golden Ratio as the Fundamental Constant of Nature,” http://www.quantumgravityresearch.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/quantum-walk-spin-31.pdf

One possibly important insight that occurred to me. The narrator talked about tetrahedrons as fundamental units (“physical reality pixels”), with each of them having different states. This reminded me of Donald Hoffman’s Conscious Agents, CAs, which he represented in a first rough approximation as triangular shapes/processes, functioning analogously in a manner somewhat similar to Turing machines:

From “

Objects of Consciousness” (https://www.academia.edu/8227575/Objects_of_consciousness),Even this simple model of interacting hierarchies of CAs leads to the identification of

“a wavefunction ψ of the free particle with a harmonic function g of a space-time Markov chain of interacting conscious agents.”As a next step, bringing in another dimension of processing for more complex CAs, one would add another point to create higher dimensional tetrahedral CAs (“TCAs”), as it would add one more fundamental point, and three more communication channels might lead to the emergence of many more equations from the interaction of hierarchies of more complex TCAs. If so, what might that additional “point” represent, and what might the communication channels ? Something I find quite fun to think and to speculate about!This has already given me ideas about what an upgrade of the “Beyond the Matrix: Conscious Realism and Lucid Being” workshop that I just gave at the Anaheim IASD conference might additionally include, in version 2.0. <g>”

This is an impromptu video conversation about Quantum Field Theory and Modern Physics in response to a recent post inspired by an email from researcher and geometer colleague, Frank van den Bovenkamp. Bruce Rawles and Frank converse about this fascinating and arcane world, weaving some of his new ideas ideas in with metaphysics and other related topics. Be sure to read the prior inter-related post: Golden Ratio and Quantum Field Theory – Frank van den Bovenkamp.

The **Golden Ratio** (approximately 1.618) makes yet another appearance, this time in the realm of quantum physics. The golden ratio (a.k.a. sacred cut a.k.a. divine proportion and several other names) – which beautifully symbolizes the principle of **interconnectedness** – shows up over and over in this holographic material universe of our projected minds, giving us metaphoric clues everywhere for undoing our erroneous divisive beliefs in a seemingly disconnected “nowhere” world, revealing the intrinsic oneness we all share behind the façade of indivi-duality.

For those with advanced math and physics backgrounds, you will particularly appreciate this video and the commentary on it below from geometer colleague, Frank van den Bovenkamp of TrigunaMedia. If you do understand it, please clue me in; as my college physics and math classes (plus a little dabbling since) aren’t quite adequate to plumb the depths of this material. Thanks to Frank for passing this along!

You might also enjoy Frank’s other videos covering subjects such as

- Heart & Brain Coherence (professional applications)
- Physics and Microvita science
- Samples (other videos about geometry, vortices, etc.)

Here is his commentary:

Hello friends

Please consider the detailed and completely reproduceable reason why Phi is crucial in Quantum Field Theory /symmetry breaking and therefore all of creation.

In summary, a newly defined, naturally synchronized groundstate (i.e. without manually added constraints),naturally produces a) a Vacuum Expectation Value (VEV), and b) a non-trivial internal cycle or mode, associated witha Goldstone boson – both required so that the scalar field can produce a gauge field, conservation laws, eigenstates, etc..

You’ll see that if you take a spectrum of that internal mode or hidden cycle, it peaks only at the point where thegroundstate’s recursion is at Phi – that is where the goldstone mode is lifted out of the quantum field, and, in relationto gauge interactions, the Higgs boson.

In short, Phi naturally and continually lets the physical world break out of the hidden state or field. Unlike in QFT,symmetry is never broken in an absolute sense, rather the groundstate remains poised “on the edge of chaos”.

In philosophy this infinitely intricate state is referred to as swabhava. You can also verify how the groundstate’ssubwave geometry could very well be parametrized by what in philosophy is known as the guna’s.

**Fractal Art**: Last weekend I met a local fractal artist (Kevin Square) at a nearby crafts festival showing prints of his creativity; here’s a page with some of his work. The image above is his work entitled “Winterwoods”- Here’s a video conversation (with some familiar names – with a hint of one of the names above – from the world of sacred geometry) about support for the idea that our planet’s geometry (spheroidal) may be
**hollow**, and lots of other exotic info; thanks to Barbara R. for this link. - in case anyone noticed a ‘hiccup’ in the availability of my 2nd book (TGC:
*The Geometry Code:*

*Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation*) this past few days, it was offline (from it’s usual Amazon listing via CreateSpace) for about a day while I submitted a new interior, with the only substantive changes being: 1) a change of postal address (from Castle Rock, Colorado to Yachats, Oregon) and 2) replacing a redundant quote with another non-redundant one…: Who knows which quote was duplicated in the prior printings of TGC? Unless you have ordered a copy of the book in the last week or so, you’ll have the version that has one of the block quotes duplicated somewhere in the book. Contact me if you know where it is if you’re inspired (and I’ll confirm) or if you have anything that you would like to share on GeometryCode.com!**Trivia Quiz** - Last, but not least for this post, here’s a video with some nice
**rotating polyhedra sculptures**by colleague, Gregory Hoag of I-Connect (formerly Metaforms). The image below is a metal sculpture of a small stellated dodecahedron (one of many that Hoag has available for sale).
