Vector
Equilibrium arrayed 60 times about its center, represents a spinning (sequential
primary *zang-fu *organ meridians) and pulsating (coupled extra-ordinary
vessels) life form.

**VECTOR
EQUILIBRIUM AND BALANCE
**

*‘Equilibrium between positive and negative
is zero. The vector equilibrium is the
true zero reference of energetic mathematics.
Zero pulsation in the vector equilibrium is the nearest approach we will ever
know to eternity and God: the zero phase of conceptual integrity inherent in the
positive and negative asymmetries that propagate the differentials of
consciousness.' *-(R.Buckminster Fuller, Synergetics)

Energy meridians of an organic body transport energy in order to achieve a return to singular harmonic unity. The Vector Equilibrium represents the balanced energetic body. Vectors represent the energetic meridians, and equilibrium is the balance strived for by the energy which is inherently intelligent, resilient, and desiring spiritual fulfillment (to be balanced). Vector equilibrium is a balanced destination of the spirit's devotional noble pursuit.

*‘VE is the anywhere, anywhen, eternally
regenerative event inceptioning and evolutionary accomodation and will never be
seen by man in any physical experience. Yet
it is the frame of evolvement. It is not in rotation.
It is sizeless and timeless. Its
mathematics deals discretely with chordal lengths.
The radial vectors and circumferential vectors are the same size.'*
-(RBF, Synergetics)

Vector Equilibrium is the only polyhedron volume where the radial vectors and circumferential vectors, existent in its four planes, are equal in numerical quantity, hence its name.

*‘VE is a condition in which nature never
allows herself to tarry. VE itself is
never found exactly symmetrical in nature’s crystallography.
Ever pulsative and impulsive, nature never pauses her cycling at
equilibrium: she refuses to get caught irrecoverably at the zero phase of
energy. Everything that we know as
reality has to be either a positive or a negative aspect of omnipulsative
physical universe. Therefore, there
will always be positive and negative sets that are ever interchangeably
intertransformative with uniquely differentiable characteristics.' -*(RBF,
Synergetics)

*‘VE is at once the concentric push-pull
interchange, vectorial phase or zone, of neutral resonance which occurs between
outwardly pushing wave propagation and inwardly pulling gravitation
coherence.' -*(RBF, Synergetics)

As the circumferential vectors of VE cohere to bind radial vectors, so also does the physical with the metaphysical, or regular meridians with extra-ordinary (spiritual) meridians. A balanced and strong body will support the journey of the spirit, and vice versa, a devoted spirit (inner feeling) will guide a diligent vitality (action), via a disciplined energy (thought). The quantitative equality of vectors represents the firing process required in internal alchemy, or spiritual evolution.

‘*VE is a tetrahedron exploding upon itself
turning itself inside out in four possible directions to derive eight, inside
and outside in four directions. VE
accomodates all the intertransformings of any one tetrahedron, by polar pumping,
or turning itself inside out.' -*(RBF, Synergetics)

Tetrahedral structure of the Vector Equilibrium (tetrahedral explosion eight fold in four directions).

*‘Cosmic terminal condition is a singularity
point, or the
centroid of VE, where the turning inside-out-tetrahedron becomes zero
tetrahedron.'* -(RBF, Synergetics)

VE has a volume of 20 tetrahedra, whose volume
is one. VE volume contains 6
half-octahedron volumes and 8 tetrahedron volumes. Each half-octahedron volume is equal to 2 tetrahedron volumes.

6 half-octahedra x 2 = 12
(regular)

__+ 8 tetrahedra x 1 = 8
(spiritual)__

= 20 VE (*qi-*body)

The human body has 12 regular meridians and 8
spiritual meridians for a total of 20 variety meridians, the volume of the
vector equilibrium when it basic building block, the tetrahedron, equals 1. The vector equilibrium (VE) is made up of 8 tetrahedron and 6
half-octahedron. Volumetrically, the
tetrahedron has a volume of 1, while the half-octahedron has a volume of two. The total volume of all tetrahedra within VE is 8 (8X1).
The total volume of all half-octahedron within VE is 12 (6X2); making the
sum total volume of VE, 20. The mystic
number of 20 links the volume of VE with the number of variety meridians in the
human *qi* body, or meridian system.

Confluent
(master) points of spiritual vessels are portals in the center of the eight
triangular faces of the Vector Equilibrium. These eight portals penetrate the
center, *mingmen*-*qihai*, which contains *yuan-*source *qi*.
Each portal is paired with its opposite via an axis (two radial vectors),
creating a pulsating effect on four dimensional planes within Vector
Equilibrium. *Yuan-*source points of regulating meridians are portals in
the center of the twelve square faces of the Vector Equilibrium. They also
penetrate the center, but via the circumferential vectors.

*Yuan qi *originates between the kidneys
at GV4-*ming men, *the* *"life gate fire," which combines to
warm CV6-*qi hai *during a contracting inhalation in reverse breathing, a
mechanism to facilitate *neidan, *or internal alchemy. The merging of the
two points happens in the region under the navel, more specifically the lower *dantian*,
"elixir field," the centroid of the human energetic body, where
internal alchemy begins and ultimately returns.
Consistency in gently focusing on the lower *dantian* during reverse
breathing for a particular length of time has been referred to as the firing
process of internal alchemy which leads to spiritual refinement, or evolution.

*Yuan qi * travels through each meridian via the triple warmer.
*Yuan*-source points regulate *yuan qi*, regulate excess and
deficiency syndromes of their related organs towards a homeostatic effect on the
corresponding organ. *Yuan*-source
points also retain the primordial *qi *of a particular organ, and therefore
are portals to the *mingmen*, origin of *yuan qi.*

Confluent (master) points are portals connecting regular meridians with spiritual meridians. Confluent points enhance the body and spirit by uniting regular and spiritual meridians. Confluent points and the eight spiritual vessels also represent the eight trigrams.

**TETRAHEDRA
AND VESSELS (SPIRITUAL MERIDIANS)
**

Within the perceptual process a minimum
constellation emerges from our preoccupation of getting rid of the
irrelevancies. The geometry appears out of pure conceptuality.
We dismiss the irrelevancies for a clear understanding, to finally arrive
at the most minimum system to divide universe into macrocosm and microcosm.

Tetrahedron is nature.
Nature uses the tetrahedron in her fundamental formulation of organic and
inorganic chemistry. Tetrahedron is the
first spontaneous aggregate of our experiences. As
chemists and physicists have found, nature is tetrahedrally based, and we find
our thoughts resolving themselves spontaneously into the tetrahedron as we
generalize about nature’s special cases.

The four pointed pyramid is fire.
The ‘four-star affair’ is tetrahedron.
A tetrahedron has four vertex points (stars, closest packing of spheres),
six vectors (edges, relationships), and four faces (openings).
This form is the basic building block of all the Platonic solids.
It is the most minimal thinkable set that would subdivide universe.
It encloses the least volume with the most surface area.
The tetrahedron is comprised of four unique planes nonparallel to one
another, thus four unique perpendicular poles to establish a four dimensional
system.

Plato and thinkers from other ancient
cultures agree that polyhedra have elemental characteristics based on their
number of vertex points; the tetrahedron is the element fire, the procreative
force that inspires change. The
tetrahedron is the sharpest, lightest, and most penetrating of the Platonic
solid group. The less vertex points a
polyhedron has, the more mobile and stable it is.
Western science uses the tetrahedra valency to describe molecular phases
(the rate of molecular movement is regulated by heat); univalently bonded = gas;
bivalently bonded = liquid; trivalently bonded = solid; quadrivalently bonded =
crystal.

*‘All silicates contain a fundamental unit
called a silicon tetrahedron. Differences
in linking and stacking of tetrahedra result in different silicate types.’
*

Two tetrahedrons juxtaposed at their
centroids, the three dimensional star of David, or star tetrahedron as coined by
DaVinci, can stabilize a cube which is the element of earth.
Fire generates earth. The tetrahedron has the greatest resistance
of any structure to externally applied concentrated load.
However, the tetrahedron is the only polyhedron that can turn completely
inside-out. When studying the progressive presence of points, or closest
packing of spheres, the tetrahedron’s four vertex points represent the
physical realm.

The 8 tetrahedra alone support the structure
of VE while simultaneously defining the 6 half-octahedra.
Similarly, the spiritual meridians support the *qi* body by serving
as reservoirs for the regular meridians. Also
since the spiritual meridians follow no specific energy flow, they have been
associated with the tetrahedron, since the tetrahedra apexes share VE’s
centroid. This quality reconfirms the
close relationship of the spiritual meridians with *yuan qi*, found in the
lower *dan tian*. VE is comprised of
four unique planes of tetrahedra nonparallel to one another, thus four unique
perpendicular poles to establish a four dimensional system.
The four planes correlate to the four married pairs of the spiritual
meridians; *Du-Yangqiao, Ren-Yinqiao, Dai-Yangwei, Chong-Yinwei*.
Master points may be found at the center of area of each tetrahedron
base, where each polar axis penetrates. Each
polar axis of a tetrahedra married pair is a highway for *yuan qi*.

**HALF-OCTAHEDRA
AND REGULAR MERIDIANS
**

The octahedron is air.
The earth generates metal, which Plato translates as air. An octahedron has six vertex points, eight faces or openings, and a
volume of 4 tetrahedra. In the VE, a
half-octahedra is merely the space in between 8 tetrahedra sharing a common
univalency, VE centroid. Air is the jewel
of life, thus the octahedron correlates to the regular meridians of the organs.

Since there is a cycle of *qi* flow
manifested by the regular meridians, their action is much different from the
spiritual vessels. Regular meridian
energy spins by weaving along octahedra edge vectors of VE, while spiritual
meridian energy pulsates on tetrahedra polar axes of VE.
Because confluent points and source points are on the same axis, they
manifest a similar energetic quality, in that they have a close relationship
with the *jing *of the centroid.

**
CLOSEST
PACKING OF SPHERES AND GHOST POINTS**

The centroid of VE with the centroids of each of the closest-packed spheres which are the vertex points of vector equilibrium, make a total of 13 closest-packed spheres. These 13 closest-packed sphere correlate with the 13 ghost points.

**
STAR
TETRAHEDRON CENTROID AND THE FLOWER OF LIFE ( MERKABA) **

The centroid of the sphere represents the
first ghost point, *renzhong *(man's center). The radius of a
closest-packed sphere is equal to the distance from the VE centroid to the
centroid of any local tetrahedron. The Star Tetrahedron within the centroid
sphere is an inner Flower of Life (*merkaba*).

EQUILIBRIUM AND THE TREE OF LIFE ( KABBALAH) **
