Welcome and thank you for exploring Quadernity©, presented here as a full-length online blog-book.
Why the blog format?
The multimedia-friendly platform enables us to use images, graphics, animations, and video to unfold Quadernity historically, symbolically, scientifically and practically.
Why online for free?
Quadernity© is a logically coherent, psychologically supportive and spiritually affirmative model that should be made available to everyone interested, regardless of their ability to pay. Although offered freely for the benefit of all, the material presented is protected by copyright law and may not be reproduced for profit or personal gain.
How is the site organized?
As a guide for this site’s organization, we can imagine Quadernity is the trunk of our tree. The largest limbs are the main menu titles above the masthead graphic, which runs horizontally across the top of each page.
By clicking on the menu title itself, you will be taken to an introductory landing page for that heading. Holding your cursor over mast-head titles will drop down sub-menus of chapters in some, not all, of the titles. Please note the landing pages are accessed only by clicking their titles in the masthead and not from the drop-down menus.
The sub-menu lists chapters branching from the main limbs that spread from the tree’s trunk. Many of the branching chapters drop down further, into enriching asides that offer finer detail. These asides/esssays could be more technical or specialized, or just something tangential to the post.
For some readers, the asides may be perceived as an immediately helpful augmentation, while other readers may rather return to them at a later time. For those in the first camp, an easy-access purple link is provided where appropriate within the main text. For those of the latter persuasion, you may skip the link and access the asides at any other time, either from the drop-down menu or from the site map at the bottom of each page.
As twigs with twists and turns extend from branches, so shall some asides branch off even further, into essays of finer and finer detail. You may follow the drop-down menus as you might surf the internet.
Down at the finest level, like little nodes on twigs, there are clickable links (underlined and emboldened words or phrases) that provide definitions or supplemental information to enhance comprehension.
Photos and graphics can be brought forward and enlarged by clicking on them. Use your back arrow to return to where you left off.
Start a video by clicking on the large white triangle in its center. For best viewing, move your cursor off the video screen after activating. If you wish to pause or rewind the video, pull your cursor back onto the viewing screen and the control buttons will again become visible. The symbol that looks like a vertical equal sign will pause the viewing so you can study a slide. To rewind for review, click and drag the progress bar back toward the left as far as desired.
For best understanding, readers are advised to move through the site as one would read a book, left to right across the main mast-head titles, and top down through the drop-down chapters and asides.
At the bottom of every page, you will find a Site Map that lists in sequential order all pages and asides.
The Introduction is the landing page for the online book, extending a welcome from the author to explore Quadernity. (You probably just came from there.)
The Site Orientation: You are here now!
Each masthead title is summarized below with the approximate reading time for its chapters, including asides and videos, though not counting time to follow optional links to definitions.
The Back Story includes a candid and intimate autobiography of my young-adult life. Approximate reading time: 15 minutes.
The Testimonials offer thorough and thoughtful assessments of my body of work by highly-regarded professionals whose own esteemed work has intersected in some way with Quadernity. Approximate reading time: 10 minutes.
In the Journey Begins I describe how my dreams precipitated lessons which were evoked by my persistent questions and deeply held curiosity about ancient creation stories. Also offered under this heading are chapters that provide background reasoning for why Quadernity is philosophically unique. Approximate reading time: 1 hour.
Initial Insights is the landing page of Part One of the blog-book, where both the process and the product(s) of an amazing journey are shared. Downloaded most days for nearly two decades are abstract visions displayed in my dream-space. As I ask carefully concentrated questions, the images clarify and my understanding of them is refined.
Under this heading are five chapters, all related to the original chalkboard model. Its four-fold dynamism is universal, underlying all entities, processes, and organizations.
The approximate reading time for each of five chapters, including their asides, is provided.
- Quadrants of Creation: 25 minutes
- Quadrants of Information: 1 hour, 15 minutes (including 3 videos)
- Divine Divisions 1 hour, 30 minutes
- Pull * Transition * Push * Rest, Nature’s Ubiquitous Sequence: 1 hour, 45 minutes.
- Paradoxical Visions: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Part Two of the blog-book is under the mast-head, More Models Evolve. It includes chapters that introduce models derived from, and developed after, the original two-by-two chalkboard grid, which was explored thoroughly in Part One.
Keeping precisely to the dynamics of original model, the newer models offer varied perspectives and expand the applicability of Quadernity’s postulations.
Although Quadernity is unfolding to this day (more chapters are in the works), it already provides a lens through which we can reconsider conundrums and capitalize on secrets that underlie issues of relationships, regardless of scale.
Completed chapters, including asides and videos, have the approximate reading times:
- Pragmatic Schematic, 1 hour.
- The Lattice Model of Quadernity, 1 hour.
- Equivalency of Primary Models of Quadernity, 15 minutes.
Part Three, Mathematical Models of Quadernity, contains 98% of the blog-book’s math. The chapters are under construction; however, the landing page is ready with an introduction.
Part Four, Philosophical and Scientific Models, is under construction.
The Essential Vocabulary menu includes words that were coined, out of necessity, especially for Quadernity. Also included are special definitions for ordinary words which have been used in a specific or uncommon way throughout this site. Clickable links will be provided when these terms are first introduced, and you can refresh your memory at any other time by returning to the Essential Vocabulary listing.
Under the mast-head entitled A New Light on Creation we align the revelations of Quadernity (from the four part blog-book) with creation stories, as told through seven days in the Book of Genesis in the Holy Bible, as well as the Rig Veda and Tao te Ching, which both precede Genesis. The ancient creation stories turn out to be as much scientific allegory as they are historical record. By comparing Quadernity with these and other creation stories, a key to translation is revealed which correlates Quadernity to quantum physics, the theories of information and complexity (see Part Four). Apparently, in the 21st century, we are just beginning to explore some of the astonishingly accurate wisdom teachings from thousands of years ago! (Section under construction.)
Practical Perspectives explores how Quadernity may be applied to the benefit of our individual lives and endeavors, as well as to more global issues. First chapter: Achieving Our Souls’ Goals: 1 hour, 30 minutes, including six asides.
The Presentations are a few examples of programs previously delivered in group settings. The programs are all video driven. Their times are listed with their descriptions.
