The Etymology of Number is a four-part lecture series that examines the discovery and evolution of the human understanding of numbers and their role in physics, chemistry, photonics, gravity, music, art, architecture, mathematics, measurement, time and human awareness.
This course builds upon history and secular teaching from the great philosophers and polymaths of antiquity to today, each of them equally scientists, mathematicians, psychologists, musicians, architects, artists and sculptors since the dawn of recorded human history. We examine the works of Pythagoras, Plato, Archimedes, DaVinci, Shakespeare, Kepler, Descartes, Newton, Einstein and Russell, among others. We also investigate the role of numbers through history within the human psyche, spirituality, Gnosticism, esotericism, self awareness and actualization.
In the second lecture, “The Mystery of Constants,” we demystify Pi, Phi, Alpha, Euler Number and Euler Mascheroni Constants and their inter-relational effects on the entire universe including planetary orbits, orbital velocities, time measurement, atomic resonance and the universal constant of light speed. Through this lecture, participants gain a broader appreciation of the multi variant phenomenon we experience everyday, including rhythmic balanced interchange, polarity, complementarity, non-locality and duality.
The third lecture titled, “The Language of Light,” covers the interrelationship of the mathematical constants, assembling them into a mathematical and universal language of electromagnetism and photonics (light), a language where numbers and geometry are the fundamental basis for our daily observation and life experience, dimensional awareness and syntactical communication. This lecture will also delve deeply into the twin opposing reactions of vibratory electromagnetism: radiation and its mirrored opposite condition, gravitation, as well as implications on spin, angular momentum, energy, forward time, and their mirrored opposites including dark matter, dark energy and the emerging notion of backward time.
In the fourth and final lecture, “The Mirror of Consciousness,” we review the prior three lectures. The discussion culminates in the presentation and discussion of a new unified ‘theory of everything.
