Icons: System States

AnarKey-Control-States

I have been working to define system states and come up with an iconic representation for those states.  They are the above representations of equality.

AnarKey-Control-States-Graph

This graph is based on the interpretation of the Greek concept of theatre.  Primarily Aristolean.

AnarKey-Control-States-Sine

The above is the same set of states as a sine wave function.  I have added two additional states to deal with dimensionality (w, x, y, z).  I also shuffled the prefixes to be more consistent.

English tends to use prefixes without structure.

Buckminster Fuller: In, Around and Out

iconsrelate

There is no “up” or “down”.  There is only “in”, “around” and “out’.

– R. Buckminster Fuller

What Buckminster says is not so hard to understand if you think about planetary bodies.  You can fall into the gravitational well, orbit the gravitational well or escape the gravitational well.  There are only the three choices.  The same goes for all forces ultimately.
