  1. An attribute of the above definition of Rational requires precise definitions for its primary components, Form, Function, Cause, and Effect.
  2. The Rational Model Of Complex Mechanisms defines them as follows.
  3. Cause is defined as difference opened. ©
  4. Effect is defined as difference closed. ©
  5. Function is defined as a zero volume container – a point or Fulcrum. ©
  6. Form is defined as a contiguous aggregate of Function – a line segment or Chase©.
  7. Moving any further is problematic in book form. We must start to build a context into which all of what follows fits divinely, Rationally. To do so requires that we jump around shoring up holes and foundations as we progress. We will need to go back and forth around and around to do so. Expect to feel light headed or dizzy from time to time. We will be shedding baggage as we begin to see this encapsulation of complexity in the world around us and most importantly in the world within us. This a model of You and me and God’s plan for us, so we can survive and rejoice in what comes, has always been coming, and always will be. Understand that God, the infinitely complex and the infinitely simple, has a message for each of us and this model is one way of preparing for his message. Understand also that this is only a step, and in the case of conflict arising from reading what follows, the words herein must be surrendered to the greater truth as it is further revealed. Remember that we all sacrifice the whole truth of any given experience for the Value to which we are constrained. The Rational Model Of Complex Mechanisms defines Value as any flow within a given flow. ©
  8. Now we have to bind Cause and Effect, Form and Function together so we can build. We need this binding to be precise and simple. The Rational Model Of Complex Mechanisms further defines :
    Innate is defined as that which arises directly out of Cause and Effect. ©
    Intrinsic is defined as that which arises directly out of Form and Function. ©
    Abstract is defined as that which arises directly out of the Binding. ©
  9. All of the above describe the lever. Levers can be confusing because we lack a simple language for them. While traditionally the lever has been explained as a fulcrum across which lies a bar. Part of the bar to one side of the fulcrum is described as the effort arm, and the part of the bar to the other side of the fulcrum is described as the resistance arm. This standard teeter-totter, balance, or scales of justice model is quite simple to grasp. Teaching anything more elaborate about levers quickly becomes complicated. The key to grasping all levers simply is to treat the bar that lies across the fulcrum as a bar in and of itself. The Chase is the name we will use, from here on in. If you adhere to these two encapsulations, the Fulcrum and the Chase, you will quickly see that we live in a world of fulcrums and chases. Even more startling will be the discovery that fulcrums and chases can be small. Molecules and atoms are aggregates of fulcrums and chases as are the components of atoms and the components that lie within those components. Levers can be so small that they simply lie outside of our current Capacity for Technologically Augmented Perception, TAP. The degree of smallness is limited only by our imaginations. The Rational Model Of Complex Mechanisms (The Model) asserts that indeed this increasing smallness is infinite.
  10. The lever, a Chase bound to a Fulcrum, can take a variety of shapes. Some of the other common shapes are, pulleys, pendulums, wheels, and springs. We ourselves are a mass of levers. The most easily grasped are our joints and bones. Our knees, elbows, ankles, and shoulders are fulcrums; our legs and arms are Chases. We can simply encapsulate a large mass of levers that together form their own larger lever as a mechanism. The Rational Model Of complex Mechanisms (The Model) defines a Mechanism as follows.
  11. A Mechanism is defined as an aggregate of levers that implement a lever.
  12. As you think about this you can imagine or see around you that, clearly, there can be mechanisms that are aggregates of mechanisms. Automobiles, trains, firearms planes blenders lighters, are aggregates of mechanisms which we call machines. Bugs, birds, plants, life itself in addition to life’s capacities are aggregates of mechanisms. There are self-evident differences between inorganic and organic machines (life). Because this can become complicated, we will need to encapsulate these parts or components, these mechanisms of mechanisms, as simply as possible.
  13. The, Innate, Intrinsic, and Abstract define The Three Conditions. Their differences are encapsulated by the flow through them. These differences are absolute. They describe the shape of flow. The striation of flow, the innate, the innate directly giving rise to the intrinsic, the intrinsic directly giving rise to the abstract, The Model asserts is the conditional shape of flow – Context.
  14. The Model defines Context as the Conditional shape of flow.
  15. The origin of Flow is a mystery as flow gave rise to the Universe. This flow is also known as Transcendence. The Innate Condition is always the initial motion of Transcendence.
  16. The model defines movement as Form implementing Function, and Function iterating Form. © All movement is helical. Motion is defined as the change in shape of a given helix. While movement affects the flow through the helix and the flow of the helix, motion is the aggregate change caused by that movement. Motion is the aggregate shape of change. The Innate and the Abstract Conditions are motion; the Intrinsic Condition is movement. While the Innate can bee seen to move quite clearly, The Model assures us that such appearances are deceiving. Movement is always constrained to the Intrinsic Condition. This is confusing because Humans have no capacity to perceive movement. Humans construct an encapsulation we describe as movement from our sensory aggregate of changes. We are taught or allowed to assume that the central nervous system is a singularity expressed as the mind. The difficulty is that our brains have no sensors of their own. We have no way of experiencing our minds as the aggregate that they are. The mind is our experience. This constraint on our intelligence, we are sensory intelligences, denies us an easy encapsulation of concurrence. Concurrence is our song and dance. We are concurrence, and hence we have the capacity to orchestrate our muscles and limbs. We can use our multiplicity of leavers to some purpose that originates either from the inside or from the outside. Because we are aggregates in every sense of the word, we can have been aspiring to things greater than ourselves both as individuals and by extension as peoples. We can express this aspiration as Persistence.

Directly out of Cause and Effect

As we were discussing the RMCM, throughout the past 14 years, we (Rick and me, Don) came to believe that we needed categories of “simplicity” to allow us to find the outermost construct of a given complexity, presuming Complexity grows inwardly. At some distance from where we are now we intend to apply the model to existing disciplines – Arithmetic, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Linguistics, etc. to provide an universal encapsulation that completes the missing pieces of a general theory of everything.
To that distant end, we introduce our first and simplest aggregate as well as our first investigative lexical tool. The Innate (Innate Condition).
The Innate is defined as : that which arises Directly out of Cause and Effect. Innate encapsulates an event, the action of closing a switch. The innate requires a capacity for flow whether or not the flow actually occurs. As you can see, things become quickly complicated; a door is like a switch. A gate is a switch, and a light switch is a switch but only when the power is on?
We intervene here with Condition. A Condition is a flow. The Innate Condition is any given flow arising Directly out of Cause and Effect.

Wondered about this …

… for quite some time now.

With an ambitious decentralized platform, the father of the web hopes it’s game on for corporate tech giants like Facebook and Google. article …

A key property of complexity is that a given Paradigm’s inward flows become increasingly distributed as their Value density increases.

This change iterates meaningful new containers within increasingly meaningful containers. More specifically, metaphors crystalize into candidate principles which become available for implementation. While all metaphors yearn for implementation, only principles can be implemented. Organically, all zygotes are metaphors that yearn to be born. Only those that comply with the principles templated in their DNA can be born. Keep in mind that minor novel variations are are part of the design. Principles are far more constrained than are templates.

Difference Closed

The above definition of Effect also asserts a source of or for “Difference”. Analogous to the Electrical term “switch closed” where the original source of difference is both voltage and amperes are free to flow. The RMCM asserts that Inwardly flowing Gravity is our source for closing difference, Difference Closed.
Within Delta when Gravity flows inwardly ∞- and does so in critically proximity to the outward flows, Cause, Timelets from each flow bind into a single unit of time. As time is bound, the passing inward and outward flows discretely snarl implementing a three dimensional unit of mass. Together time and flow at critical proximity discharge a DarkSpark. The DarkSpark is a discrete existential event of both mass and time or MassTime. We already know of this result as a point.

Difference Open

Cause is defined as Difference Open

The above Titled definition of Cause asserts a source of or for “Difference”. Analogous to the term switch open where the source of difference is both voltage and amperes. The RMCM asserts that Gravity is our source of difference. In Delta, Gravity flows outwardly +∞ opening difference. The RMCM asserts that this is Cause and Causation.


[1]Along with the method of empiricism as the source of all knowledge goes a definition of cause that is widely accepted today. The cause of any event is a preceding event without which the event in question would not have occurred. This is a mechanistic view of causality popular in scientific circles. All the previous events would constitute the complete cause.

  1. Causality and Causation have been treated philosophically by great minds. Fortunately, for me, presenting a model obviates argument. The model either works or it doesn’t work. Herein I merely try to explain the model, and I do so presuming this model can be tested. Everyone is free to accept or reject the definitions and the explanations I present. I predict that as we approach implementation the arguments that will arise will be exuberant. This model, when implemented, I predict will encapsulate organic intelligence within an inorganic metabolism.
  2. The definitions and the descriptions herein just came to me. Realizations or epiphanies that arose in groups as I contemplated my ambivalences following a disaster that I was blessed to have survived. Initially I understood ambivalence from its dictionary definition as a polarization of feelings. I began to see this definition as wholly inadequate as a description of what I had been through, and what I was feeling afterwards. I agree that ambivalence tends to disable action. I agree that ambivalence can be confusing. The ambivalence of the young tends to be cleaner than the ambivalence of the more mature. My ambivalence was a cluttered thing. To sort through it required that I encapsulate the experiences mechanistically (functionally). Everything I reflected on (thought about) was a mishmash of likes and dislikes. Some of this can be attributed to the debris from a life long battle with clinical depression. Apparently a problem with my serotonin that was brought under control at midlife with Paxil. I had six years of wonderful clarity and coherence terminated by a disaster. Now I have clear moments that punctuate the noise. The only thing that keeps me whole is prayer. The images surrounding the disaster haunt me in my sleep as well as during my waking hours.
  3. To survive I had to make things simple. One room apartment, simple meals, lots of prayer, plenty of music, film, and reflection modest wardrobe basic laundry, no women no kids. Sometime between the beginning of 2003 and the end of 2004, I began to encapsulate everything in ever simpler terms. It became clear to me that there was a profound difference between complicated and complex. Things began to stick in my mind as I gingerly bound the before and after into a new reality.
  4. I remembered a course I attended at The University of Waterloo. I was never enrolled as a math student there; my formal education ended half way through grade eleven. The course was run by IBM. They were introducing their Visual Age software IDE they had just ported from Small Talk to Windows NT. I was using (learning) Borland’s Delphi at the time, and this of course was in C++. So what I really wanted was to know what these well educated people could tell me. I don’t “do exams”, never have never will. So I attended all the classes; I just never wrote the exam. But the course and the instructor were great and worth every penny I had spent. I asked for and was provided with a list of books that would help me understand OOP. I didn’t get the whole Object Oriented thing at the time. It took about six months of my full attention before it clicked. But click it did. And when it did it was like someone had opened the blinds. Significant here is that during the course on IBM’s Visual Age was the first time I had heard the phrase “over inherited”. What an encapsulation! Never forgot it or the almost off-handed way it was delivered, encased in a directive to focus on the Standard Template Library, as a remedy. Seems as though inheritance is over rated and not as helpful as it first appeared to be. It seems as though templates were far more productive.
  5. If inheritance is problem at 2 or 3 gigahertz, then what of inheritance at the paltry speed of the biological operating system? The speed of water and chemicals propelled through water is comparatively slower than the speed of a micro processor.
  1. DNA is clearly binary.
    [1]DNA is a polymer of the four nucleotides A, C, G, and T, which are joined through a backbone of alternating phosphate and deoxyribose sugar residues. These nitrogen-containing bases occur in complementary pairs as determined by their ability to form hydrogen bonds between them. A always pairs with T through two hydrogen bonds, and G always pairs with C through three hydrogen bonds.[1] nucleic acid. (2008). Encyclopædia Britannica. Ultimate Reference Suite.
  1. This is in essence a binary code innately 0 or 1 through binding, and start bit and stop bit through orientation. This way or vice a verse, is arguable. If inheritance is a terminal problem for “intelligently designed” software, then how does nature get away with it? Nature doesn’t. It needs viruses to transfer new templates from one species to another. Viral RNA isn’t constrained to base pairs. It can bring novel binary constructs to bear on a limited or failing inheritance. Template swapping and inheritance combined make increasingly complex life possible. If we encapsulate the reproductive system as a primitive metabolism on its own, then we can begin to envision how life could have grown out of more primitive metabolisms. Metabolisms so fractured and dispersed that we don’t think of them as such. The closest thing we have to them is probably the echo system itself. If one can see an echo system as a metabolic analog, then we can begin to encapsulate the history of life in the four terms primitive, modern, simple, or complex.
  2. Life can be modern or primitive relative to the dispersion of metabolisms or as simple or complex depending on the creature’s perceptive/behavioral distance from the living machine. The more dispersed the attributes of a given metabolism the more primitive the construct. The more tightly bound to DNA, like single celled life, the simpler the life form. We are thus free to see sexual and asexual reproduction as concurrent developments rather than being forced to think of single celled life as having come first and trying to figure out what made it decide to become a concert of two or more. For all we know single celled life is the new comer and multi-cellular life came first (see diversification and purification).
  3. Ambivalence at large can be better encapsulated as concurrent feelings of like and dislike.
  4. I had no idea until very recently that Darwin’s entire thesis was pinned to the idea of probability. Without any knowledge of DNA Darwin could only have seen his theory as a variation on assertion that the hand of God molded Adam from the clay of the earth. All he asserted in large was that rather than God molding just Adam that God through nature molded all life on earth. God had provided a mechanism for man to evolve from the lower beasts. As nature molded life, nature improved on the design by allowing only the fittest of any model in production to be used for further molds. The evidence was all around us if we just took the time to see. Darwin’s failure of course was twofold. One failure was the complete inability of his theory to form the basis for accurate predictions. The other failure was the absence of an algorithm. It is one thing to declare a connection; it is quite another to show the steps that built the connection.
  5. Given enough dots, we can connect them in anyway that suits us. We can construct elaborate transformations and trace a route by which the most primitive connections can be changed into elaborate motifs.
  6. I have defined Cause as Difference opened.
  7. Humans have no capacity to sense movement. Humans are movement. Humans have only the capacity to respond to change. Movement is the source of all change. For movement to occur there must be some event of difference. This is the Chicken-or-the-Egg conundrum, as in “which came first?” Difference requires an event as much as an event requires difference. This temporal conundrum causes origin, evolution, and time to fail. Mathematics and the sciences can never help us here. They all fail because they have no capacity for concurrence – distinct flows arising from the same constraint. The RMCM views mathematics as : the manipulation of Form and Function to elucidate Cause and Effect. The RMCM views science as the manipulation of Cause and Effect to elucidate Form and Function. They combine to form an equality rather than a complexity. The sums are equal to the parts. While such encapsulations are clearly well suited for discovery, they are, by design, incapable of producing genuine novelty. Novelty is a Divine Prerogative, of which The Rational (the universe) is but one implementation.
  8. To make any sense of the event-difference conundrum there must be a source of yet simpler events or attributes hidden by a complex event horizon[3]. This event horizon is referred to in the RMCM as a Condition. That Event Horizonwhich crosses from an antecedent simplicity to complexity is the Divine rise of Novelty. The RMCM encapsulates this novelty as Value. This crossover is encapsulated in the Model according to the context.
  9. definition of Growth : the abstraction of value from metabolism. The RMCM encapsulates the crossover event in and of itself as a Shift. Difference arises via Shifting. The Model encapsulates the shift as an aggregate of two identifiable granules (parts). One granule is “Cause”, and the other granule is “Effect”. The Shift executes this climb up the ladder of complexity iteratively as difference opening and difference closing. This provides us with our definitions for Cause : difference opened, and Effect : difference closed. As hard as it may be to talk of Cause indifferently to Effect, a good model provides for such distinctions. A good and true model of the universe should, in and of itself, provide all of us, including those with rudimentary vocabulary and reading skills, genuine access to all possible fields of endeavor, so that we have equal access to God’s plan for each of us.
  10. Granted this can be argued as still just another case of “handing off” ultimate causes or origins to some un-provable otherness. Nevertheless, we can and must build models that can be tested to show that such otherness is at least existential. We can and must find an encapsulation of the universe that can bind all disciplines persistently, because technology will deliver powerful containers available to the “everyman”. Eventually everyman will be able to destroy all the others.
  11. The source of mass is an aggregate of influences, and this would be a universe where pure cause persists independently of any precise effect. Our only knowledge of such a universe is Transcendence, gravity. Gravity persists as itself whether or not there is any kind of substance in proximity. Placing an object of any kind into the proximity of gravity does not change gravity. Unlike radiation (or light), which can be blocked by an appropriate mass, gravity is not an actual part of our universe.

[3] If the core remnant of a supernova exceeds about two solar masses, it continues to contract. The gravitational field of the collapsing star is predicted to be so powerful that neither matter nor light can escape it. The “star” then collapses to a black hole—a singularity, or point of zero volume and infinite mass, hidden by an event horizon at a distance called the Schwarzschild radius. Bodies crossing the event horizon, or a beam of light directed at such an object, would seemingly just disappear—pulled into a “bottomless pit.”
Black holes remain hypothetical, but observations suggest that such phenomena may possibly exist in the star system Cygnus X-1 and at the centre of the Galaxy.

The Rational – An Early-Days Introduction

Rational is defined as that which adheres to the principles and that iteratively bind Cause, Effect, Function, and Form into The Rational.

The Rational is defined as an implementation of the Principles that iteratively bind Cause, Effect, Function, and Form into Rational Paradigms.

Property is defined as any given lever, mechanism, or machine.

This is a model, so the question “why” will remain a loose cannon and red hearing. Instead we will describe a hypothesis that we pray will guide us to an implementable model.

This attempt to model what we call Persistence (rather than existence or the existential) requires that we restructure our understanding of gravity and mass. We have attempted and will continue to construct Robust definitions that build on Simple Attributes, Conditions, and Properties defined in our lexicon. Eventually we will arrive back at a Rational encapsulation of another phenomenon that is still, to most, clearly as poorly understood as mass, gravity, Density, and Ambivalence. Our model arises as an attempt to understand Ambivalence. The model asserts that ambivalence is central to what it means to be Homo Sapiens : Terra Virtualis  and other simpler Rational Paradigms.

We strongly advise against any attempt to argue for or against an interpretation of the lexicon. This is a reasoned undertaking that obviates logic.

The Point – Beyond SpaceTime To MassTime

No Science No Math No Logic

The smallest construct in the known universe is The Point. The point occupies no “Space”. I could never accept space as a truth. Sure, we “use” the word, and most understand the reference. “Space” then must be an illusion or a concept. As we shed the shackles of this undefined construct, “Space”, and the many others that fill our minds, you will experience a range of emotions. Some will experience general discomfort, anxiety, claustrophobia and even vertigo. I tell you this as we will be shedding many shackles herein. I have been yelled at. laughed at, feared, and I have confounded too many to count. So, of the assertions to come herein, no arguing with others, mistreating others, or harming anyone by misusing the assertions including the lexicon, to blindside, bushwhack or deliberately confound.

I have known this since late childhood

4a : a geometric element that has zero dimensions and a location determinable by an ordered set of coordinates
b (1) : a narrowly localized place having a precisely indicated position
• walked to a point 50 yards north of the building

• have come from distant points
c (1) : an exact moment

• at the point of death
d (1) : a particular step, stage, or degree in development
• had reached the point where nothing seemed to matter anymore

The First Experience

Experience is defined as any change to a given aggregate that becomes an Attribute of that aggregate.

The First Experience, Delta+ |:| Delta- is a MassTime event.

Timelets are values of both Delta+ and Delta- flows that connect like lock and key implementing, as asserted, [Delta+ |:| Delta- ] fulfilling the aggregate and juxting imperatives as well as ensuring Effect follows Cause and Growth is from the outside to the inside.

Primordial Cause (outward gravity +∞) is the source of Experience. Primordial Effect (gravity ∞-) is the completion of cause or instantiation of The First Experience +∞- .


The First Experience is fleetingly Existential rather than Persistential.

Both inorganic and organic aggregates Acquire and Express experience conditionally. The innate experience is Existential
