It all start off as “a dream” or “an idea.” Where do these come from? Dialogos of Eide
This is the house similar to what we will be constructing, with some modifications of course.
Most know of my time helping my son last year constructing his home. The journey of pictures that I have here within this bloggery. It has also some “dimensional aspect” in it’s development, so I thought this might help those who are working Euclidean coordinates, may help to seal this process in some way, by being introduced to house construction.
This is the home that my wife and I had built in 1998. It was built on ten acres of land with a wide sweeping view of the mountains in the background. Although not seen here, you may have seen some of my rainbow pictures that I had put up over the years to help with the scenery we had.
Well the time has come for my wife and I to be entering into the venture ourselves. You will notice that the model we choose above is one floor. We thought this suitable for the coming years as when we move into retirement.
I think I am getting the better of the deal, as he has taken the time to write me a 17 page step procedure with which I must follow. I thought this will become part of the journey for my wife and myself, so that everyone may see the process unfolding and maybe learn something about home construction. The plans of course change from country to country, while this plan is unfolding in Canada.
We purchased a 2 acre parcel of land with which to build the new home up top. I went into the bush with the camera and with about 2 feet of snow. It was not to easy to get around, so as time progresses,and as I put in the roadway and cleared site, you will get a better idea of what it looks like.
We had to contend with where we will live. We wanted the freedom and space to be close to where we will be building, so we bought a 19′ foot travel trailer and will be putting it on the acreage while we build our new home. We thought of “renting” and our son of course offered for a time to let us live with him. We thought all around with the new baby Maley, we would leave them have their space as well.
Laying the Foundation
I would like people to take note of the image supplied on the website of Euclides.Org, as it is one that I have used showing Plato and Aristotle. The larger picture of course is one done by Raphael and is painted on the wall in the “Signatores room in the Vatican.”
The Room of the Segnatura contains Raphael’s most famous frescoes. Besides being the first work executed by the great artist in the Vatican they mark the beginning of the high Renaissance. The room takes its name from the highest court of the Holy See, the “Segnatura Gratiae et Iustitiae”, which was presided over by the pontiff and used to meet in this room around the middle of the 16th century. Originally the room was used by Julius II (pontiff from 1503 to 1513) as a library and private office. The iconographic programme of the frescoes, which were painted between 1508 and 1511, is related to this function. See Raphael Rooms
While one may of talked abut the past, or use a name like Plato of the past does not mean that what is being supplied from that position is not dealing with information for the 21st century. I would like you to think that while speaking about models that what the house is doing in “a psychological sense” is giving you a method by which all that you do in your life will materialize in consciousness and digs deep into the unconscious.
How often had you seen yourself in dream time, doing something or other, in the living room, kitchen, or anything that deals with the current state of mind, that you of course will see in this house? They are the many rooms of the mind.
All those who have written histories bring to this point their account of the development of this science. Not long after these men came Euclid, who brought together the Elements, systematizing many of the theorems of Eudoxus, perfecting many of those of Theatetus, and putting in irrefutable demonstrable form propositions that had been rather loosely established by his predecessors. He lived in the time of Ptolemy the First, for Archimedes, who lived after the time of the first Ptolemy, mentions Euclid. It is also reported that Ptolemy once asked Euclid if there was not a shorter road to geometry that through the Elements, and Euclid replied that there was no royal road to geometry. He was therefore later than Plato’s group but earlier than Eratosthenes and Archimedes, for these two men were contemporaries, as Eratosthenes somewhere says. Euclid belonged to the persuasion of Plato and was at home in this philosophy; and this is why he thought the goal of the Elements as a whole to be the construction of the so-called Platonic figures. (Proclus, ed. Friedlein, p. 68, tr. Morrow)
I choose this as an introduction, whilst I will be starting from the ground up. This will include the planning of road way and building site. Since I have this interest about physics and where science is going these days, how could I not incorporate these things into what I am doing currently with my life now? So while I speak about the science end, I am encapsulating “this process” with regard to how I will construct my home.
Is this possible?
Well having spoken of the “Euclidean reference” one would have to know how one departs form such a scheme of Euclid, to know that this graduation to Non-Euclidean geometries was somehow related to the “fifth postulate” written by Euclid.
So of course, we had those who were involved in this development historically, which serve to remind us about where someone like Dali may of been as a visionary, in terms of Time. Or “geometrically inclined” to higher dimensional figures.
It definitely had it’s connotations to “points of view.” I mentioned religion, but for the nature of Salvador Dali, and his lifestyle, one would have to wonder where he was going with the Tesserack and his painting of Jesus on the Cross?
While I do not subscribe to any religion per say, I do subscribe to the finger of Plato pointing up. Have you for one moment you thought to roll your eyes up in your head, and think of what is up their in your mind? Assign our highest values to goodness. Surely you would enlist the “Colour of gravity” in all situations as you choose to live your life? It’s there for the choosing.
Surely, that if you wore a hat on your head, or thought, to think of the roof of your house, you may indeed think of the highest ideals with which you choose to live your life. It’s not my job to tell you what that is, that is yours alone.
You will be involved with aspects of the “universal language” that knows no boundaries, no matter your race, gender, or nationality. Yet, it will be specific to you. It will have “probabilistic outcomes” according to the life you are living regardless.
The Secret of the Golden Flower
When ever you walk the pathways in your mind of what ever model, you are laying the road work for that which you will travel through. Why, I may have referred to the title of the “Golden Flower in the Bee story,” is a result, that the probabilistic outcome of life calls upon this “chance meeting” to come to what is held in mind. So what’s new having the honey of the Bee community?
Do the Bee dance, and you learnt from others what this model is doing. So you travel. You get the benefits of the honey sometimes in new thoughts? There had to be a point “like the blank slate, glass room, a pen and paper ready” in order for the mind to be receptive to what already exists out there in the “form of ideas.” How will these manifest? So indeed, it came from deep inside/outside you?
I never thought this inductive/deductive method while thinking it topological smooth in it’s orientation, was not the exchange going on with our environment. That if you live your life according to your principles, then the principles would become part of your life. That on a level not understood to clearly, the “colour of gravity” was what we could evolve too? What is our own dynamical makeup, to become part of the ideals we had set for ourselves. We set our own ship in life. The boat or vehicle, becomes part of the way we will travel in our dream time. The airplane we ride.
