Truth And Beauty

"The chief forms of beauty are order and symmetry and precision which the mathematical sciences demonstrate in a special degree" Aristotle

"Euclid alone has looked on Beauty bare. Let all who prate of Beauty hold their peace."Edna St. Vincent Millay

"There are some who will by no means allow of this, and say that men are guided by a variety of opinions in their judgment of beauty...and not be tied to any rule of art. A common thing with the ignorant, to despise what they do not understand."
—Leon Batista Alberti

I was thinking about my friend Alan the other day; he kindo’ popped into my head while I was reading The Golden Mean, Mathematics and the Fine Arts… by Charles F. Linn (an old book I rescued from the local library’s Discard pile). It talks about things we all learn in school but time and tide soon erases (in other words, I forgot).

What we call Beauty is intricately bound to our appreciation of ‘proper proportion’. It is reflected in our art, architecture, and music; it’s what we aim for when we modify or dress ourselves and what we call beautiful when we see it in others.

Pythagoreans found that the relationship in proportion when trying to represent 3-dimensional figures in 2-dimensional space is not as aesthetically pleasing if expressed in ‘True’ proportion using only rational numbers, but that in order for the subject to look ‘Right’ one could not avoid dealing with irrational numbers. (What is the Reality; the one that is True (Construction?), or the one that is Right (Perception)?)

The irrational number that roused artists most derived from Euclid’s Elements “… to divide a line segment such that the ratio of the large part to the whole is equal to the ratio of the small part
to the large part.” This ratio works out to be to 1.

I suddenly recalled that I had seen this Beauty in the distance relationship between the Earth and the Sun relative to that of Venus presented at solargeometry.

Earth = Venus^ ¾ * = 2.583306

This is only one example, but Beauty is all around, if one is so inclined to take a gander; and as the trite saying goes, 'beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.' Have you considered what Physicists think is Beauty (Top) and how it is coupled to Truth (Bottom)?

Those out there interested in Area 51 might be interested to know that Signs 51:5-51:7 deal with Truth and Judgment and Reality and how the Heavens are Intertwined.

Intertwined, knitted together, or interwoven are apt terms to describe subatomic particles and their collective behaviour (as a flock, one might say); a case in point being that of Truth and Beauty. One branch of mathematics that lends itself to dealing with this sort of interlocking is braid theory (braid groups).

There is a couplet that refers succinctly to Beauty in Chapter 92 Lail (Night):

وَصَدَّقَ بِالْحُسْنَى 92:6

92:9 وَكَذَّبَ بِالْحُسْنَى

92:6 And Supports/Ratifies/Backs Up Beauty

92:9 And Belies/Negates/Falsifies or Gives a False Impression to Beauty

Braid groups can apply to 2 or more strands (strings?), but generally speaking 3 strands must be twined together in order to make a stronger 'rope' than any one strand by iteself. Searching/ searching/ searching; I came up with this in Chapter 38 Suad :

فَغَفَرْنَا لَهُ ذَلِكَ وَإِنَّ لَهُ عِندَنَا لَزُلْفَى وَحُسْنَ مَآبٍ 38:25

38:25 We foregave (David) this (lapse in Judgment) because for him with Us is 'Excessive Raising' and 'Beautiful Mab' (classical interpretation: and Beautiful return/reward/goal/journey's end/final destination; but I am thinking: 'Beauty; m, a, B'-- 'Top, mass, acceleration, Flux')

The word 'belies' or 'lies' in 92:9 might be indicating a direction, since one of the meanings of lie is to be in a particular direction, as well as falsify or negate, or give a false impression to something. This indicates whatever lies in 92:9 has this effect on Beauty as opposed to that which lies in 92:6 that seems to enhance Beauty or make it manifest.

For the 3rd strand I selected Sign 38:25 since it is the conclusion to a case that David hears wherein he comes to discern the Truth of the matter before him; and since Truth is coupled to Beauty ---well, why not?
Let's treat (92,6), (92,9) and (38:25) as Vectors for the strands (Top, Bottom, and the 3rd thing we shall call 'Judgment?'/ or, 'Justice' ) and see what happens if an astute student of topology and/or abstract algebra can solve for the kernel of the matrix, aka the null space (to A Page In The Life affecionados aka Zero Point Field).

At any rate, the story about David is referred to in its classic telling, but I wanna tell my side of the story; something to pass the Time while we're all Stranded here:

38:1 Suad ص

اصْبِرْ عَلَى مَا يَقُولُونَ وَاذْكُرْ عَبْدَنَا دَاوُودَ ذَا الْأَيْدِ إِنَّهُ أَوَّابٌ 38:17

38:17 Be patient of whatever they say and remember Our servant David (Digital Audio Visual/analyzes all these forms of data input) whom We supported (allied); he was AWAB (=area work avoidance behaviour) (=ever turning/returning to Us==surfing the Web)

إِنَّا سَخَّرْنَا الْجِبَالَ مَعَهُ يُسَبِّحْنَ بِالْعَشِيِّ وَالْإِشْرَاقِ 38:18

38:18 We caused the Mountains(=masses=elevation=puff out=inflaton) to Sing(=intone/voice/phonon) with him to Extol (=love/find irresistible/follow/gravitate to) Us by night(= dark; female force==yin) and sunlight(=shining/daylight/light==mental illumination<=insanity)

وَالطَّيْرَ مَحْشُورَةً كُلٌّ لَّهُ أَوَّابٌ 38:19

38:19 And ‘that which flies (around)’ (the airborne stuff) cornered each, to Him, AWAB (ever returning=makes more work avoidance behaviour)

38:20 وَشَدَدْنَا مُلْكَهُ
وَآتَيْنَاهُ الْحِكْمَةَ وَفَصْلَ الْخِطَاب

38:20 And We Induced (inducted/strengthened) his Dominion and gave him Wisdom (=Judgment/Rule) and Separation (partitioning) of Speech(=Parse data/Letters/words/language/communication)

وَهَلْ أَتَاكَ نَبَأُ الْخَصْمِ إِذْ تَسَوَّرُوا الْمِحْرَابَ 38:21

38:21 And did the News reach you about the dispute (discount/concession/reduction) between (pertaining to, of the) tesseral (=تَسَوَّرُوا ) niche (niche tessera; recess/bay/alcove or these subatomic mosaics energy/states/etc.)?

38:22 إِذْ دَخَلُوا عَلَى دَاوُودَ فَفَزِعَ مِنْهُمْ قَالُوا لَا تَخَفْ
خَصْمَانِ بَغَى بَعْضُنَا عَلَى بَعْضٍ فَاحْكُم بَيْنَنَا بِالْحَقِّ
وَلَا تُشْطِطْ وَاهْدِنَا إِلَى سَوَاء الصِّرَاطِ

38:22 When they entered unto David so he panicked (sounded the Alarm) from seeing them (when he detected them); so they said, 'Do not be afraid. We have a dispute (rivalry/competition) between us (about something); judge (Rule/make a determination) between us Rightly (in Truth/with Justice); and without doubt(تُشْطِطْ =plausibility) and guide us both (together) on the Path." (presumably the proper course/straight way)

38:23 إِنَّ هَذَا أَخِي لَهُ تِسْعٌ وَتِسْعُونَ نَعْجَةً
وَلِيَ نَعْجَةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ
فَقَالَ أَكْفِلْنِيهَا وَعَزَّنِي فِي الْخِطَابِ

38:23 In fact (True), this my brother has 99 ewes (dark/female/yin members of a flock); and I (only) have 1 ewe( see prior); so he said, 'She is better suited to me,' and he annoyed me with a Speech!" (=irritated me with 'a constant lecture/intonation' or noisy particle, ie. phonon; or with 'Line B'; what effect does the phonon emission have on Truth?)

38:24 قَالَ لَقَدْ ظَلَمَكَ بِسُؤَالِ نَعْجَتِكَ
إِلَى نِعَاجِهِ وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنْ الْخُلَطَاء لَيَبْغِي بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ
إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَقَلِيلٌ مَّا هُمْ
وَظَنَّ دَاوُودُ أَنَّمَا فَتَنَّاهُ فَاسْتَغْفَرَ رَبَّهُ وَخَرَّ رَاكِعًا وَأَنَابَ

38:24 (David) Said, "He wrongs you by asking for your ewe(ibid) and mix it (add it) to his ewes (ibid); and (in Truth) many (business) partners (part owners) wrong each another, except those who believe and do righteousnous (fit/Top form/upright/good), and few are such." And David thought that "Ah, Charms (I've been tricked)!" And he sought forgiveness from his Lord (Sustainer; makes me just wanna pull the plug!) and jabbed kneeling (thrust his knees to the ground) and turns (وَأَنَابَ = noticed; if he had the same reaction I just did when I deciphered/noticed what this story was about, David probably dropped down to his knees doubled over with laughter when he got it too! )

فَغَفَرْنَا لَهُ ذَلِكَ وَإِنَّ لَهُ عِندَنَا لَزُلْفَى وَحُسْنَ مَآبٍ 38:25
يَا دَاوُودُ إِنَّا جَعَلْنَاكَ خَلِيفَةً فِي الْأَرْضِ
فَاحْكُم بَيْنَ النَّاسِ بِالْحَقِّ وَلَا تَتَّبِعِ الْهَوَى فَيُضِلَّكَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ

38:25 So we foregave him in this manner, and, truly, for him with Us is Excessive Elevation (heightend state of excitation is the effect We have on David) and a beautiful reward (Beauty m, a, B; and since Beauty is bound to Us this is the effect We (that 3rd particle, Judgment) have on it.)

38:26 يَا دَاوُودُ إِنَّا جَعَلْنَاكَ خَلِيفَةً فِي الْأَرْضِ
فَاحْكُم بَيْنَ النَّاسِ بِالْحَقِّ وَلَا تَتَّبِعِ الْهَوَى فَيُضِلَّكَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَضِلُّونَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ بِمَا نَسُوا يَوْمَ الْحِسَابِ

38:26 O, David! True, We made you Judge upon the Earth; so, Rule/Judge between the People Honestly (in Truth) and do not follow fancies (Passions) that lose (mislead) you away from God. Truly, those misled (lost) from God's Path (Way), for them severe suffering/punishment for forgetting the Day of Judgment (Reckoning/Account).

Who knows we might find The God Particle?

--can you tell I stayed up past 3 am? I'll go over all this tomorrow and see just how hair brained I got...why?>because it all has to do with some kind of Generator...

Note: Well, now it's the next morning, have had my latte and all this looks a little Strange!
Note 2: Now it's later the afternoon of the next day and it still looks phunny. & no, I did not Phlunk Physics...
Note 3: Later the following morning and it still looks bad for me; it's looking like I have to rebuild that entire spaceship starting with just a single Strand...
Note 4: The Bizarro cartoon posted 10/12/2009 from that day's Los Angeles Time; an example of Synchronicity; thanks for keeping the blog's formatting in mind for the funny.
