” We define the Least Inclusive Geometric Unit as that Geometric Unit existing in a given D which uses the least possible number of elements native to that expression of D and yet exhibits the full expression of the dimensions contained within that D. It is the Least Element of the Set of Geometric Units within that expression of D. For example, within D=0 the Point is that geometric unit which fully expresses the potential of that dimension. No other geometric unit is possible within D=0, so the Point is by default also the Least Inclusive Geometric Unit for D=0. In D=1, the infinite line is a not a possible geometric unit, since the concept of geometric unit must imply finiteness. Geometric units possible within D=1 are those expressed by consecutive line segments, defined by a series of points along the line. This series constitutes an infinite set; but there is a lesser possibility: the single line segment, defined by two separate points on the line. For D=1 the Line Segment is the Least Inclusive Geometric Unit (LIGU). In D=2, there are an infinite number of possible geometric units that can be built by combining line segments; triangle, square, pentagon, etc. The geometric unit that expresses all the possibilities of D=2, i.e. Area, using the least amount of resources is the Triangle, and for D=2, the Triangle is the LIGU. Likewise, for D=3 the LIGU is the Tetrahedron. There are an infinite number of possible elements for this set, also. Note, we have not stipulated regularity as a requirement of the geometric units within a given expression of D. In the case of D=4 we are faced with a puzzle. What are the characteristics of the LIGU for that D? Much has been written about the Hypercube, and its geometry is well understood, but is it the LIGU for D=4? In order to answer this question, we will examine the development of the Set of Least Inclusive Geometric Units in N Dimensions. Points D=0 D=1 D=2 D=3 D=4 D=5 1 2 3 4 5 6 Line Seg 0 1 3 6 10 15 Triangle 0 0 1 4 10 20 Tetrahedron Hyper-Tet ???????? 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 5 1 0 15 6 1
We can see that as D increases, the number of Points in the LIGU is augmented by one element for each increase in D. However, at first glance it does not appear that there is a simple function that describes the progress of the number of Line Segments, Triangles and Tetrahedrons as D increases. In fact, the sequence is defined, not by a function but by a procedure: the Arithmetic Triangle. 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 0 0 1 3 6 10 15 0 0 0 1 4 10 20 0 0 0 0 1 5 15 0 0 0 0 0 1 6 0 0 0 0 0 0 1
This, however leads to another question: what is the Geometric interpretation of the column of 1’s at the left of the triangle?
and gives us the complete Arithmetic Triangle as the generator of our listing of the structure of the Set of LIGU in N Dimensions. Grasp. “Look. Therefore. But. Since the Void underlies all manifestations of D. . we propose adding to the list of Dimensions one preceding D=0. Therefore they are joined in One. there would be Void for about 5 miles in all directions before one encountered the nearest electron cloud. this factor is not included in the chart we have developed for calculating the characteristics of the set of LIGU in N dimensions. it cannot be heard – It is beyond sound.In order to answer this question we must look to another aspect of the Arithmetic Triangle: it’s use in describing the ways in which a Set may be partitioned. its presence in the Arithmetic Triangle indicates that there is 1 way of choosing zero elements from any set. “But yet creation’s neither crammed nor blocked About by body: there’s in things a void – … …For were it not. it is properly included in the list of the components of each manifestation of D.” In the above chart.” Tao Te Ching (14) Modern Physics tells us that if the nucleus of an atom were the size of a soccer ball. In order properly to include the column of 1’s (which is the necessary initiator of the Arithmetic Triangle) we must assume a D of less than 0! The Geometric analog of the empty set can only be the Void. As Lucretius wrote in “De Rerum Natura”.

Listen. … Knowing the Ancient Beginning is the Essence of Tao. it cannot be seen – It is beyond form. This is not an esoteric statement. things could in nowise move…” Oriental Wisdom tells us. Since it is a proper subset of all sets. N=0 represents the empty set. D=Null which has for its content the Void.

For D=0.
Astral. Physical. and I do not have the power of visualization to picture it. Energic. while the Esoteric Structure of the Human Being consists of 5 bodies nested together.For D=4 we can now deduce the structure of the “Hyper-Tetrahedron” (as viewed in a 2 dimensional projection of a fourth dimensional object. It is of further interest to note that the characteristics of the Set of LIGU in N Dimensions can easily be represented in 2 dimensions by the set of regular geometric polyhedrons with lines interconnecting their vertices. Mental and Spirit. D=Null D=0 D=1 D=2 [ ] D=3 .) For D=5 we have an object which consists of 6 of the above HyperTetrahedrons. There is an interesting parallel between the structure of the LIGU for D=4 and the Esoteric Structure of the Human Being: The Hyper-Tetrahedron consists of 5 nested solids defined by 5 points.
these figures may be interpreted to indicate that Mankind is indeed a fourth spatial dimensional being.D=4 D=5 In Esoteric terms. it can model the relationships of the lower 6 Chakras within the 7th. This may account for the power of those geometric figures in “Magic” ritual and preparations. it came to my attention that the ancient Greeks (probably Pythagoras. and subsequent thinkers have noted that the Arithmetic Triangle describes the structure . Furthermore. and that the pentagon enclosing the pentagram models the interconnections of these bodies. Note that this diagram contains the symbol for the Principle of Correspondence as well as the Unity of Opposites within the encompassing Hexagon. composed of five bodies intermingled. Apology When I was researching historical documents in preparation for the writing of this report. Also. but I have no direct evidence of that) were aware that the Arithmetic Triangle describes the structure of the geometric structures up to the Tetrahedron. the figure for D=5 can be interpreted to show that 6 “Worlds” exist within the encompassing scope of a higher Entity.
Sci. A. I must confess that this effort at best consists of an independent rediscovery of things previously understood. Even that. and as of this writing.Appl. I acknowledge is subject to review.of the Hyper-Tetrahedron (although I have been unable to find the exact attribution for this discovery. John Thomas Murphy. I can take comfort that this places me in Noble company. with hindsight. A.A. No doubt the conjectures I have made regarding Esoteric implications of this geometry are well known and in greater depth by Advanced Initiates. since Pascal himself unwittingly rediscovered applications of the Arithmetic Triangle well known to the 5th Century Chinese and later the Hindu and Persian mathematicians. Humbly submitted. PAX .) Therefore. In fact. the only original contribution I can lay claim to is the definition of the Set of Least Inclusive Geometric Units in N Dimensions. However.
