I will begin with a quotation from Edmund Husserl on the, "Operation as the Guidng Concept in the Investigation of Forms" (Essential Husserl, 248)"If we have become attentive to the
 point of view of 'operation'
(with
laws of operation
in which, mathematically speaking, 'existential propositions' areimplicit), we shall naturally chooses the concept of operation as a guide in our investigation of forms; we shall have to conduct this research in such a waythat it leads to an
exhibition of the fundamental operations and their laws,
and to the
ideal construction of the infinity of possible forms
according to theselaws" (Essential Husserl, 248).A note on syntax: For the purposes of this paper,
Ø
is synonymous with =.

I. Math for Transforming a Circle into a Cone
by Parker Emmerson
 
When a sector of a circle is collapsed (removed), we may "fold up" the resulting shape into a cone. The parameters are related by the following theorem :
Theorem 1
When a sector of angle
is removed from a circle of radius r and the resulting shape is folded into a cone, then the base of the cone hasradius r
1
given by r
1
= r -
H
r
L

; and height 
, given by
=r
2
r
12
= r Sin[ 
 b 
Proof. The circumference of the initial circle is 2
p
r and the wedge removed has an arc length r
. Therefore, the remaining circumference is of length r(2
p
-
), and after the fold, this is the circumference of the base of the cone.Establishing the circumference of the base of the cone, from the equation,
r = 2
p
r - 2
p
 
r
1
, we calculate that its radius
r
1
is
2
p
r
-
r
q
2
p
, which simplifiesto r -
r
q
2
p
. Thus, we have proved the first part of the theorem.To find the height of the cone,
h
, we apply the Pythagorean theorem to a right triangle formed between the apex of the cone, the center of the base, and apoint on the circumference of the base. This gives
h
=
r
2
-
r
12
= r Sin[
 b
], where
 b
is the angle formed by the slant of the cone and the base of the cone.The initial radius is always equal to the slant of the cone, and the height of the cone is always orthogonal to the center of the base of the cone.
 Lemma 1
The height of the cone can be caluclated in terms of r and 
.
Proof.

The height of the cone can be calculated in terms of only r and

 Lemma 6 
The initial radius can be calculated purely in terms of the angle
.
Proof. From Lemma 1, the height of the cone has been solved in terms of the transformation. That expression for the height divided by the initial radiusis set equal to the sine of 
 b 
. Solving that equation yields an expression for
 b 
that includes r. This expression for
 b 
is then set equal to the expression foundfrom Lemma 5.
