Nassim Haramein - Black Whole - video



Someone recommended this to me -- easy for a layman to grasp. I haven't watched it all but think many here might like it. It's about the scientific or mathematical proof of how within the finite, is the infinite.

Don't know which group or forum best to post.

1. mathematical proof of how within the finite, is the infinite.

Haven't watched yet, but I will when I have time.

I love the concept of the infinite within the finite. One easy example is a Koch Snowflake. No it's not the frozen heart of a runaway capitalist, it's a geometric example of an infinite construct contained entirely within a finite space.

Take an equilateral triangle (all sides the same length) and encase it in a circle with the triangle's points tangent (touching) the circle.
Now divide each side of the triangle into 3 equal parts and draw equilateral triangles using the center parts as one of their sides. (you get a "star of David")
Now divide each side of that into 3 equal parts and make triangles of those center parts, and then again and again and again.... you can to it into infinity.
The parameter of the snowflake is infinite, but it is all inside the circle you drew at 1st.

2. that's exactly what he talks about, and demonstrates

it's so much beautiful geometry.

as the film went on I started having some misgivings
about the guy himself; and I've heard some people
think he's hokey, so there's a late caveat.

nevertheless the geometry seems perfect and eloquent
to me. I have thought of this geometry since childhood.
I remember measuring the perfect equilateral triangles
on 3-leaf clovers, and the way every sparkling rock
had a million angles.

Edit to add: that there is the infinite inside of us
has always made sense to me; and that it exists
within every particle of everything, in its entirety,
seems perfectly obvious. I could never prove it or
explain it though; but it's always looked that way.
