"Atoms are like soap bubbles..." - Clever

What are "vortices"?   I assume the word is in the plural form (of vortex?).  I tried to research the term and I did not get very far. L

I realize that when we are talking about a flagellum motor that we are way past the atomic level however, the reason why I suggest something at the sub-atomic level or beyond is because classical physics goes out the window when we start talking about point particles like electrons.  There is a complexity there that could very well lend itself to understanding self-organizing structures or even at even higher levels such how the brain functions and how people interact with one another.


"Consider this: an idea that I've had for the better part of 11 years is that all interactivity in the universe--from the subatomic level to the gravitational interactions between galactic clusters--is mirrored by human behavior. While nobody outside of the individual can explain a single persons motives, it is relatively easy to predict and explain how people (and subsequently friends, cliques, ethnic/religious groups, nations, etc...) will interact with each other. How do you feel about this?"

My first thought is Astrology reversely engineered to predict cosmic events based on what I eat for breakfast (haha).  Individuals are not as predictable as they are when observed in as system.  At higher levels of organization, statistically based predications can be made with increasing accuracy.  Does the universe mirror our behavior, or do we mirror the behavior of the universe?   Consider that we are not only part of the universe but made up of the very things we are attempting to observe.

For example, assuming that you have a normal body, if you measure the distance from the tip of your finger to the first joint-line and compare it to the distance from the first joint-line to your second join-line you will get the Golden ratio (or close to it).  If you continue to do this with the second joint-line to the third and so on and compare these measurements to the distances of the solar planets from the sun, you will notice that it is a very close match.  Is there any surprise then that the proportions of the Temple of Solomon also match that of the solar system if you consider that the means of measurement was the hand and cubit?  Perhaps not, but I still find it to be quite Divine.

Other thoughts:

-          I can post a more detailed explanation about the proportions if you’re interested.

-          Heisenberg uncertainty principle

-          “…our entire reality is based on relevant perception.”
