INEXACT BUT SUGGESTIVE VISUAL RELATIONSHIPS

Faux and Gates diagrams interpret the symmetry of visual forms correlative with those of Classical Adinkra symbols in terms of mathematical ideas relating to supermmetry. Each vertex in these symbols are accorded values represented by the numbers at each point. The visual technology of Supersymmetric Adinkra is developed through the modification and expansion of its basic depiction of elementary particles and their relations in terms of black and white circles linked by arrows into more complex structures that indicate the full range of representations of supersymmetry that theory develops. This progressive development of visual forms emerges into forms that bear either some similarity to those of Classical Adinkra, as with Epa or an exact identity with them, as with Eban. Their work could be related to an adaptation of the visual grammar of Classical Adinkra, a distillation and application of its spatial morphology of lines, circles, angles and triangles, interpreting the resulting transformations in terms of numerical relationships.

Relationships between fermions- circles- with bosons- circles

The progressive development of the most basic visual forms in Supersymmetric Adinkra, the symbols indicating fermions, bosons and their relationships in terms of white and black circles connected by arrows, suggests a deconstruction of the structure of the Classical Adinkra symbol of Nyansapon, which consists of gracefully interlocking semi circles and lines, by unknotting its constituent forms to arrive at underlying structures, a process that suggests the cognitive skills represented by the knotting and unknotting of a knot, as evoked by the wisdom knot of Nyansapon.

Faux and Gates also explicitly correlate their own diagrams with methods of visualisation, exemplified by Adinkra, which integrate and transcend verbal exposition, thereby highlighting the character of Adinkra as sources of multivalent cognitive possibilities. They could be understood as suggesting that the evocative power of Adinkra forms facilitates a penetration into the heart of human cognitive abilities, evoking the visceral character, strength, reach and architectonic force suggested by the spider spinning its web from within itself, enabling an ideational elaboration that is potentially infinite in its possibilities.
