We will continue our discussion of the torus, Aether units and geometry in this article.  We were introduced to the work of Nassim Haramein in Article 90 and 102A (Part 6).  Here we will look at the work of Buckminster Fuller and how it relates to the work of Haramein, who came after Fuller.


Buckminster Fuller

Bucky Fuller (1895-1983) was an American architect, system theorist, author, designer and inventor.  He is famous for the geodesic dome design and construction.

He called himself a “comprehensivist”, that is, one who holds a comprehensive perspective that seeks to synthesize apparent “parts” into an ever-unifying holistic understanding.

His stated mission:  “to create a world that works for 100% of humanity through spontaneous cooperation and without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”




The concept of Synergetics was developed by Fuller.  It describes the geometric articulation of energetic relationships, that is, “nature’s coordinate system”.

Synergy is defined as ‘the behavior of whole systems unpredicted by the behavior of their parts.’



Bucky Fuller & the Vector Equilibrium (VE)

Fuller knew the tetrahedron is the most stable of the Platonic solids.  He discovered the significance of the cuboctahedron in 1917 and named it the “vector equilibrium” in 1940.


The cuboctahedron is the degenerate truncation of both the cube and the octahedron.  It is the halfway point between the two polyhedra.  It is the still-point of equilibrium between their transition from one to the other.

It is more appropriately a “system” and not a “structure”.  All is motion.  It is flowing and oscillating Aether.  It is not a solid structure.

Structure, according to Fuller, is “’a complex of events interacting to form a stable pattern.’  The pattern consists of action, not things.  There is nothing ‘solid’ about structure.”4

He saw the VE as the “zerophase” or ground state of energetic manifestation.  It is the cornerstone of synergetics.

Bucky defined the VE as “an omnidirectional equilibrium of forces in which the magnitude of its explosive potentials is exactly matched by the strength of its external cohering bonds.”5

It laid the foundation for the work of Nassim Haramein and the understanding of Cosmometry.


If the force of a vector is its length and two vectors are driven against each other in opposite directions you will get equilibrium.  However, it will be unstable since any other force in any other direction could break the balance.

You need a vector equilibrium so all forces will cancel each other out and appear as empty space.

All vectors are of equal length: those from the center radiating to the outer edges, and also those making up the outer frame.


“The vector equilibrium is the zero starting point for happenings or nonhappenings:  it is the empty theater and empty circus and empty Universe ready to accommodate any act and any audience.”6


Equilibrium is defined as “any condition in which all acting influences are canceled by others, resulting in a stable, balanced, or unchanging system”.  Equilibrium is not inactivity, but rather a dynamic balance.  This balance is not necessarily physical, but may be mental or emotional as well.”7

Amy Edmondson goes on to tell us in A Fuller Explanation that “Nature exhibits a fundamental drive toward equilibrium…Nature’s tendency to seek equilibrium is a spontaneous reaction; it is the path of least resistance.  Forces continue to push or pull until counterbalanced, and in the absence of other influences, symmetrical considerations dominate.”

“In short, space shapes all that inhabits it.”8

As Bucky writes in Synergetics, “It is a hypothesis of synergetics that forces in both macrocosmic and microcosmic structures interact in the same way, moving toward the most economic equilibrium packings.  By embracing all the energetic phenomena of total physical experience, synergetics provides for a single coherent system of geometric principles.”



The Vector Equilibrium (Cuboctahedron) – Tetrahedra & Octahedra

The vector equilibrium is composed of 8 tetrahedra and 3 octahedra cut in half (as seen below).

The 8 tetrahedra point inward to one central point.  The remaining gaps are filled in with cut octahedra.

The image above shows the 8 tetrahedra and remaining gaps.  Half octahedra (4-sided pyramids) are inserted into the gaps to create the cuboctahedron.


These 11 solids make a total of 10,080 degrees.

Interestingly, the combined diameters of the earth and moon in miles equals 10,080.  There are also 10,080 minutes in a week.

Earth diameter (7920) + Moon diameter (2160) = 10080 miles


The vector equilibrium is the only geometry in perfect equilibrium in all vectoral possibilities.  It is an extremely stable shape.


It has 8 triangular faces; 6 square faces; 12 identical vertices; and 24 identical edges.

The net of the cuboctahedron: 6 squares & 8 equilateral triangles.


It also has four hexagonal planes symmetrically arrayed around the nuclear center – one parallel to the horizon, one in the plane of the page, and two more, slanted right and left at 60º to the horizon. These are seen below as red, black, yellow and white hexagons.

The four hexagonal planes are seen here in red, blue, yellow & purple.


Twelve close-packed spheres around 1 create the spherical analog of the vector equilibrium.


The dual of the vector equilibrium is the rhombic dodecahedron.  This is the same shape as the cosmic cells of our universe.  This will be discussed in detail in Article 103.

The net of the rhombic dodecahedron: 12 equal rhombic faces.


The cross-section of a rhombic dodecahedron is a hexagon.


Rhombic dodecahedra can tessellate in 3D space, leaving no gaps.



Fuller’s Cosmic Hierarchy

Fuller’s cosmic hierarchy is related to the way the Platonic solids nest within each other.  His version is one of the many sequences of how the Platonic solids transition from one to the other.

The nesting property of Platonic solids also illustrates how each Platonic solid is present within every other Platonic solid.  When you see one, each are present in potentiation.

Fuller’s cosmic hierarchy starts with the star tetrahedron (the tetrahedron and its dual).  The star tetrahedron pulses outwards to form the cube and its dual the octahedron.  From this come the icosahedron and its dual the dodecahedron.  Then come the vector equilibrium and its dual, the rhombic dodecahedron.





Buckminster Fuller’s explanation of ‘jitterbugging’ once again relates to the nesting properties of Platonic solids.  The jitterbugging motion is a result of the vector equilibrium’s ability to transform into each and every Platonic solid, remembering that the vector equilibrium is the ground state geometry of the Aether.

The jitterbugging exhibits a pulsating dynamic that arises when it moves out of equilibrium and returns back again.  During its non-equilibrium phase it manifests the primary structural forms of the Platonic solids.


Oscillation from the cuboctahedron to the icosahedron to the octahedron to the tetrahedron.


The vector equilibrium (VE) has square and triangular faces.

The square faces are unstable structurally – this allows for the VE to collapse in a spiraling motion (jitterbugging).


It can rapidly collapse and expand in both left and right spirals, pulsating and oscillating like a dancer.

As it does, it transforms through phases that include symmetrical articulation of the icosahedron, dodecahedron, octahedron, cube and tetrahedron.

Isotropic Vector Matrix (IVM)

You can extend the vector equilibrium outwards (due to equal vectors and equal 60 degree angles) from the center to form the Isotropic Vector Matrix.

Here it is seen in red in the center of the full IVM


Isotropic means ‘all the same’.

Vector means ‘line of energy’.

Matrix means ‘pattern of lines of energy’.


The IVM consists of an arrangement of alternating tetrahedra and octahedra geometries.

The IVM is the same matrix as our cosmic gravitational cells.  Our cosmic gravitational cells are composed of tetrahedra and octahedra.  The cosmic gravitational cells will be discussed in great detail in an Article 103.

The IVM is related to the Flower of Life.  It is the straight line active version of the passive Flower of Life.


It is composed of 20 tetrahedra.  There are 10 on the bottom, six in middle, three on 3rd floor, and 1 on top.

The negative space creates octahedra, that is, base to base pyramids.  There is another set in the middle, reversed and rotated 180 degrees.  Why are they there?

One IVM could not be alone.  It needs an opposite one pointing downwards.  This is due to the inherent property of polarity in physical reality.

They needed to be pushed one into the other to form a star tetrahedron.

As we saw above, the geometry in the middle of the IVM is the extremely stable cuboctahedron (vector equilibrium).

The edges of the matrix still had open spaces.  24 more tetrahedrons were added.  This created a total of 64 tetrahedrons.

The IVM is a 64 tetrahedral grid.

There are 32 positive (outward pointing) tetrahedra and 32 negative (inward pointing) tetrahedra.

The IVM is a true 3D fractal structure that grows in perfect octaves.

It can be built from 8 star tetrahedra to produce the 64 tetrahedron grid.


The 8 star tetrahedrons have points radiating out.  Put together these create 8 vector equilibriums with the points pointing inward.

The shape reflects balanced polarity (upward and downward pointing tetrahedrons that represent the in-breath and out-breath, or gravity and radiation).

It defines the most balanced array of energy structures (tetrahedra) where the positive and negative polarities are equal and without gaps in the symmetry.


The IVM is a form that illustrates growth in octaves.  It represents the original physical photon (a star tetrahedron) fractalizing out into octaves to form physical reality.


The octave structure is a part of the geometric laws that govern the universe.  Growth occurs in octaves.  This is easily seen with light, sound, and color.


The outer surface of the IVM is composed of 144 triangles.

There are 180 degrees in each triangle.

180 x 144 = 25920 = the amount of years in the Precession of the Equinoxes.

Everything in the universe is interconnected.




In this article we have seen how the work of Buckminster Fuller and Nassim Haramein regard the structure of the Aether, or the medium of space and time.  In the previous articles we explored the Aether through the lens of Cosmometry and Dan Winter.


Aether units are toroidal in nature, and are a result of the opposing yet harmonious pressure gradients of a polarized universe – that is, the inward centripetally spiraling flow of gravity and the outward centrifugal spiraling of electromagnetic radiation.  The torus is not a thing.  It is a flow process composed of Aether.  The flow process creates the geometry and the geometry creates the flow process.  It is a continuous feedback system based on consciousness.

We will continue our discussion of the geometry of space and time (the Aether) in the next eight articles, taking a look at Aether units through the following perspectives:  Conrad Ranzan, Dr. Harold Aspden, Walter Russell, Annie Besant and Charles Leadbeater, Dr. Paul La Violette & Subquantum Kinetics, The Aether Physics Model by David Thomson and Jim Bourassa, Jon DePew, inventor Howard Johnson, and Vortex Based Mathematics.


We are viewing these ideas from many angles to recognize how each of these brilliant thinkers have important pieces of the puzzle to add to the complete picture of the new paradigm of Aether science.  No one person has the full picture.  Put together, however, we can come much closer to finding a comprehensive view of reality that is accurate, unified, and understandable to all.
