Fulleranes and Allotropes

"Composition VI", 1913, Wassily Kandinsky

The term "Composition" can imply a metaphor with music. Kandinsky was fascinated by music's emotional power. Because music expresses itself through sound and time, it allows the listener a freedom of imagination, interpretation, and emotional response that is not based on the literal or the descriptive, but rather on the abstract quality that painting, still dependent on representing the visible world, could not provide.On Wassily Kandinsky and Music

How is it one is to picture the emotive content that surrounds us , and in a comparative view assign it to the emotive quality of Earth's Environ. It's storms and raining waters that cleanse, bring tears to the eyes, and in a moments release, all that is pent up rains from the cloud of distress.

So chaotic then one is to perceive the reality they live in. Such uncertainty at levels that create a haze of any time valued determination becomes the clouded colour of reason, that is baseless and motivated by the fires in the heart of anger and revealed in the pain of a lesson.

Held to the Earth's Environ according to our placement of the materials in the expressive nature of some inspirational phase change that holds seeds of the entropic balanced of order.To make Earth more human. It's peaceful places of waterfalls and it's deserts, devoid of the greenery. How dry and taxing this distress hidden in the winds.


Novel Fulleranes

The basic expanded network structure of the icosahedral water cluster is mechanically strong, having close to tetrahedrally-positioned bonds, and could be found in the, as yet undiscovered, alkane C280H120; made up of twenty C14 tetrahedral sub-structures. Using the AMBER force-field, the average C-C and C-H bond lengths and bond angles were 1.533 Å (SD 0.014 Å), 1.091 Å (SD 0.0001 Å) and 109.46° (SD 1.47°) respectively.
See: Water Structure and Science

Icosahedral super cluster

A super cluster of thirteen water icosahedra, showing the tessellation ability. Thirteen complete but overlapping icosahedral clusters form this super-icosahedral structure (an icosahedron of interpenetrating icosahedra; that is, a tricontahedron) containing 1820 water molecules (an outer shell of an additional 360 water molecules is also shown). This structure is for illustrative purposes only of the type of superclustering possible. It is not likely to be a preferred minimum-energy structure due to the increased strain on full tessellation [295]; However the icosahedral structures can form part of fully tessellated clathrate I-type structures.

    1. Hi Plato,

      An architect called Buckminster Fuller
      Thought rectangular structure more then duller
      Now soot would agree
      Along with the bee
      That this shape offers space lifts a puller



    2. Well done on the Limerick Phil:)

      Okay, I'll try one too. I will have to watch the Youtube later.

      A worker Bee in structural defined borders,

      Gravity as a baseline hanging order,

      Queen distributes Pheromone speaking,

      Dissonance created in architectural leaking,

      Distanced danced in angle as the Sun's sorter.

    3. Hi Plato,

      Very good and understand with holding many similar thoughts. After offering it in a comment to Bee earlier, I’ve clean the following one up a bit which I think also holds to one of your consistent themes.

      Aristotle’s Arch

      As Bacon and Descartes so long fought
      as hence how science best to be wrought
      induced sensory sleuth
      or reasoning's truth?
      Between which we continue to be caught



    4. Your comment has propelled me forward in a progressive and a continuing process. I reveal much more of it here as well.

    5. Hi Plato,

      With most that you said to Bee I would agree, with the source being much of the same. I extended this a bit with the following .


      Phil (as Glaucon’s proxy once more) ;-)

    6. Hi Phil,

      Thank you brother.:)

      Socrates blazed the trail indeed, for what the "question and answer shall reveal." This process while it can be external, in an educative stance, is placed before our progressions.

      Such questions can be asked internally too, to reveal the inner position held. Is like a "attractor of a kind( a butterfly flaps it's wings there and is heard in the possibilities)," that also ventures into the oceans of the world. As if, a mantra held in a vision or just the thought gathers as it does for the professor who crosses the room. Some can hold that question for a long time. Incubate it. Revealing remarkable results. Good fisher wo/man.

      AS with Einstein, who was Socrates daemon?:)

      In Plato's Apology of Socrates, Socrates claimed to have a daimonion (literally, a "divine something")[6] that frequently warned him - in the form of a "voice" - against mistakes but never told him what to do

      IN our most modern day comparison, who is this voice of reason if it is not recognize that each of us has it, but does not know that such answer can come from within as well. Comes in a most appropriate way externally as well in timing that leaves no doubt.

      If you are left to your own in the world, devoid of the physical halls of learning how shall you find the teachers?

      Socrates hearing was very acute as he ventured to ask the populace. To draw out the wisest in each of us. Even the most wisest, with all the education lac lustered in appearance to that voice. For Socrates, they were the leaders of that time.

      Such a dissension arose to quell that "voice of wisdom." Socrates willing accepted death in face of this "charge gathering in sentence." IN a way, you could say that he died for our sins for there was nothing to counter that decay in society other then to extol the greatest virtues of wisdom.

      The distinction of the teacher and student in one then becomes readily apparent. What answer shall come from the "Old wise one?"

      As with Socrates, I could speculate in comparison too, that Einstein whatever his foibles in life, was listening very acutely in a most Socratic way.

      People just needed to know where to look. If anything, my many years in this process of wanting to learn has revealed the essence and simplicity of what can come from that source. Is what Socrates was listening for. Is it always so for me? Of course not.

      I suspect you will have recognized the many questions I have placed, not just for others.:)


    7. Hi Plato,

      I certainly recognize what you refer to as a daemon. In fact with my own humble scribbling I gave mention to this inner voice as you allude to right from the start. As a boyI also often wondered what type of mind those like Einstein had that would drive them to such discoveries. What I found though that it isn’t enough to hear the voice, yet rather also necessary to have the mind required to be able to build on what is heard. Sadly it is only the few like Einstein, Socrates and some others that are blessed with them both. So the best I can do is to listen carefully and hope to grasp at least a small part of the meaning. I have no trouble then in being simply a Glaucon and thank those like Einstein who provided translation.

      “It has been often said, and certainly not without justification, that the man of science is a poor philosopher. Why, then, should it not be the right thing for the physicist to let the philosopher to the philosophizing? Such might indeed be the right thing at a time when the physicist believes he has at his disposal a rigid system of fundamental concepts and fundamental laws which are also well established that waves of doubt cannot reach them; but, it cannot be right at a time when the very foundations of physics itself become problematic as they are now. At a time like the present, when experience forces us to seek a newer and more solid foundation, the physicist cannot simply surrender to the philosopher the critical contemplation of the theoretical foundations; for, he himself knows best, and feels more surely where the shoe pinches. In looking for a new foundation he must make clear in his own mind just how far such concepts which he uses are justified, and are necessities.”
