### Dharma Wheel

I've been working or rather thinking of a new version of my Torus machine (old one) to use in water. This time it will be driven by the NG-UAVP Quadrocopter board that has the potential to use up to 16 motors, I will use eight. Here is a first rough little sketch of the concept:

It is starts to looks a bit like the Wheel of Dharma, a symbol that represents dharma, the Buddha's teaching of the path to enlightenment. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dharmacakra)

Anyway, I'm planning to steer this machine by adjusting the speed of the motors at defined positional points. Roughly the concept is when the machine spins at full speed and I would like to turn it to the right, that the rotors that pass through the blue Zone B are slowed down to 50 rpm, those that pass through the opposite red Zone D are accelerated to 150 rpm and those that move through the neutral grey Zones A-C keep their norma velocity of 100 rpm. The difference in velocity would make the spinning torus swing to the right. Here is a short clip of how the color fields would be set Software-wise while the construction spins round:

Note: if you are an engineer of some sorts and would like to help building this thing, let me know, all help is welcome, because this one might be waaay too difficult for me to do.

### Falaco Soliton

The Falaco Soliton is an interesting Soliton, as it is made up out of two connected whirlpools that are entwined by a string underwater. One could see it as half a Torus that moves continuously forward. It is an idea discovered and presented by Professor R. M.Kiehn. On his website he describes this phenomenon with mathematics of Élie Cartan, a specialist in Spinor theory:

### Torofluxus

The Torofluxus or Toroflux is a toy that was invented in mid-1990s by Jochen Valett. It is a 27-foot-long (8.2 m) ribbon of steel which is woven into a torus spring. It is often sold pre-attached to a larger plastic ring. The spring flows downwards along the plastic ring, creating a shimmering effect like a silver bubble. The spring tension in the steel tightens the inner spiral core, causing it to cling to the plastic ring just like a silver bubble. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torofluxus)

### Light passing through (U-turn vs. Tumble)

How do photons move from a object towards your eye without being obstructed by light coming from other directions? The answer could be fairly simple as each photon is a very small object that moves super fast, it could be like crosstown traffic where the vibrations of one photon compresses the Aether perpendicularly, blocking all photons that come from the side for a fraction while itself passes through, and creating a sort of red-light system, priority (right of way).

In the case of an 8-knot the generated blocking wave would be only a thin strip. A color-photon (red) could be like a flock build up out of many basic-photons (planck scale) all the flocks should be able to move through each other without any observable disturbances.

The only question that remains is, how can two opposite photons move through each other? Here the 8-particle has some interesting properties, the perpendicular the strip-like vibrational wave that goes along with rotation, leaves an open funnel in the front of the oo<< whereby two opposing particles can get close without being blocked oo<>oo. Next, the 8-particle with its U-shape arches, gives the opportunity for two photons to entangle without touching each other, and without occupying too much extra space. So they could either Tumble over each other, and move on.

Or they could hook into each other, make a U-Turn, and the two colliding photons could leave the entanglement back into the direction from where they came, giving the impression that they passed through each other, like a swimmer that makes a turn when he flips over, and continues to swim forward.

### Riffle and Spin

Riffle: A short, relatively shallow and coarse-bedded length of stream over which the stream flows at lower velocity and higher turbulence than it normally does in comparison to a pool. (1) from the german word riffeln; rifeln - to groove (2)
Rifling: The process of making helical grooves in the barrel of a gun or firearm, which imparts a spin to a projectile around its long axis. This spin serves to gyroscopically stabilize the projectile, improving its aerodynamic stability and accuracy (3).

Simply put the spiraled (helical) groves in the barrel of a gun make a bullet spin, getting it to move faster through the medium (air). Without spin it would tumble in flight, but with spin it is stable and on target. And if we consider that nature more often uses the most economic way of doing things, than we have to consider that a particle moving through the Aether most likely has a spiraled profile and/or spins.

In the two clips below we can see 2 different set-ups; (a) without a spiraled profile and (b) with. First of all the torus is given a profile in this example that of a 3 sided triangle, otherwise it wouldn't have any grip.

In this first clip, a non-spiraled torus (a) leaves a large footprint as it periodic changes the inner opening from wide to narrow. The colors show the velocity of the fluid (Red <- vs. Blue ->), and the results indicate that the Torus has a 'bumpy' way of moving forward through the Aether.

In the second clip with the spiraled torus, The current through the center ring seems to be rather constant (red) as it is the case for the 'outsides' that are constant blue. To left there is also a constant light blueish flow observable. This would indicate that a spiraled Torus would move rather fluently through the dense Aether.

### Twirls

One way that a spiraled torus would move forward is because of the thrust generated in the center, where the pressure of all the rotating spirals meet. An other option for a larger ring is that the torque at every point along the ring has an opposite force, this keeps the whole ring in balance and generates the tension needed to make the whole ring move forward along its center axis.

On previous models there where 'scoops' along the torus that generated the spiraled profile. An other way of generating a profile that has grip, is to use a polygon with 3 to N sides, and have it twirling around the ring. Such a twisted profile along with an impulse spin would provide the necessary features to make a hoop move forward through a medium, be it water and air, as in clip with the dolphin below, or Aether and compressed Aether.

The image of the whirlpool below shows how it has a naturally rippled profile due to the structure of the water (medium) and the wind. An entwined Torus could have a similar grip providing profile.

### Pilot Wave

A recent article in Nature:

http://www.nature.com/news/2011/110602/full/news.2011.344.html

A quantum take on certainty

Intriguingly, the trajectories closely match those predicted by an unconventional interpretation of quantum mechanics known as pilot-wave theory, in which each particle has a well-defined trajectory that takes it through one slit while the associated wave passes through both slits. The traditional interpretation of quantum mechanics, known as the Copenhagen interpretation, dismisses the notion of trajectories, and maintains that it is meaningless to ask what value a variable, such as momentum, has if that's not what is being measured.

Steinberg stresses that his group's work does not challenge the uncertainty principle, pointing out that the results could, in principle, be predicted with standard quantum mechanics. But, he says, "it is not necessary to interpret the uncertainty principle as rigidly as we are often taught to do", arguing that other interpretations of quantum mechanics, such as the pilot-wave theory, might "help us to think in new ways".

### Spiralled Torus - Cross Section

This simulation shows perfectly the current / thrust that is generated through the hole in the middle.

### Color Spectrum (Shaoling Fish - Flocking Birds)

Light is build up out of different frequencies, layer up on layer: Red + Green + Blue = white. In physics the term photon is used to describe the smallest entity, it is the lowest number on the plank's scale.

Light is considered a wave that travels through space. From the 8-formation particle concept, one could see light as a flock of birds or a shoal fish moving through the Aether. The compression and size of the group defines the possible frequencies it contains.

By using a prism light can be split up, when it passes the lattice of the glass' atomic structure, bending the incoming light into different observable bundles / formations / frequencies: Low (Red) - Medium (Green) - High (Blue)

### Visco-Elastic Medium (Aether)

When Aether is considered as a Visco-Elastic medium, with particles bouncing of each other, containing lots of energy, as shown in the above YouTube clip (2min38) … well if in such a medium a spiraled looping such as the Torus or the '8' is placed, and they are given an impulse, then this impulse might be conserved.

The spiraled screw-structure would reduce friction when flowing forward, and an agile rotary system along the path of the looping would act like a ball bearing, make them slippery as an eel, and they would have a continuous momentum, giving them the mechanism to move from one side of the medium to the other side, at a constant speed that is defined by the intensity of the Visco-elasticity of that medium. The ongoing process of action & reaction, push and being pushed, powered by the bouncing particles.

### Simplify

Why make a complicated torus with 16 rotors, when a basic set-up of 3-4-5-6-7-8 might be enough.

... and as for power and control, a central 'cockpit-egg' might be the best solution. It wouldn't disturb the inner-current-flow, and reduce the size of the rotors.

### Spirals

Why a single 8 as a force particle, and not a whole spiral of eights as shown in the drawing above? Well the answer is simple, as a 2D drawing it is nicely symmetrical but in practice (3D) the spiral can't be closed as elegant as a basic 8-looping, thus a close helix spiral is not an option.

### Optical Illusion

The animated .gif shows two 8's, in front-view, that are placed above each other, and they both rotate in synchrony from left to right, as you can see in the upper top-frame-view they spin anti-clock-wise.
There is an interesting optical illusion noticeable when you look at the two from left -> right spinning 8's namely that after a few turns, seven or so, they suddenly appear to be spinning in the opposite directions from right -> left.

### Lift and Thrust (1st tryout in water)

A first tryout of the mechanical model in water. This clip is a compilation of 4 clips. Unfortunately the black tub isn't a good setting for visualization, and filming while handling the object at the same time didn't go very well either, so the quality is rather poor.

When switched on, the 'Spiraled Torus' spins around its center axis in a Counter Clock Wise (CCW) direction. When it was on the bottom it didn't lift. I had to pull it a bit and it started to move upwards. To set it back to the bottom, I had to apply some force, so it does generate thrust. Probably the space between the floor and the torus needs to be large enough so a current flow can be generated so the object can lift of the ground (see pic below) similarly to how swifts rarely land on the ground because their short feed, which makes it hard for them to take off.
In the last clip the direction of the current is changed and the object rotates Clock Wise (CW). When placed in the tub the construction moves towards the bottom, once pulled back up onto the surface, it rotated again downwards.

### 3 Particle Proton

Let's say for that for a proton the snake-like trefoil knot is too far fetched. Than it still would be an interesting interaction canal system for a 3 particle interaction organism, with a top and two down quarks made up out of tori, and smaller tori moving in between serving as gluons. The whole mechanism would eject / emit 8-like positive charge particles that hook up electrons, along with much smaller gravity particles. Once an electron is captured, the mechanism is neutralized.

### Matter vs. Anti-matter

If gravitation is caused by a spinning 8 knot (formed out of squashed together tori), that acts like a little screw 'swimming' away from its origin, and generating a downwards push, than all these gravitational 8-shaped particles would have the same rotational direction (blue). Rotating in the opposite direction (red) wouldn't give them a chance to lift themselves from their generating source, actually they would screw downwards into the mother particle(and perhaps cause damage). This idea would also results in the concept that the universe full of identical spinning particles who travel through the Aether (Vacuum) applying some gravitational force. It would also mean that Matter that spins in an opposite direction wouldn't got a long lifespan as it doesn't go with the flow, leading to the occlusion of Anti-matter in the Universe.

### Curves

The Curvish structure of the 8 has a lot away of the stitching of a Baseball or the lines on a Tennisball. In mathematics this curve falls roughly in the section of "Constant Curvature Curves" one can find a lot of information on this curve on the website of professor Palais et al and their program 3D-XplorMath that can be downloade for free at http://3D-XplorMath.org/index.html. The image below is made with this program and there is even the possibility to view it in 3D if you have a pair anaglyph glasses. http://virtualmathmuseum.org/SpaceCurves/constant_curvature/constant_curvature.html

### Magnetism

When electrons are attracted through vibrations of the positive suction power of protons in the nucleus of an atom, they start to generate a current-train of electrons, that spirals round the outside of the electric wires, towards their target.

While storming through the Aether the electrons compress at their centers, the relative free particles, that make up the Aether, stamping them into a new unity of jointed particles. A smoke rings production like process. These new particles have their own properties such as, forward movement and spin. Once formed, the emitted particles spiral away from the source (wire) and generate an electric field that surrounds the conductor.

When a coil is made and a current generated within, the puffed out particles that spiral away, collide with particles that are coming from opposite directions, due to the construction.

Because of a continuous inflow of puffed-out particles, a compression area between the wind-up wires is generated. It is here that pairs of opposite particles (light- & dark green) are pushed into each other. They entangle, break and melt into a new harmonious particles. These new particle have the shape of an 8 and start to spiral upward. It are Force particles transforming the coil into a magnet.

A smoke ring generator (zerotoys)

Additionally, the crystal structure of Magnetite has a similar a tight lined up pattern.

Note: I'm doubtful that the above concept of two opposite O-ring particles fusing into one 8 particle has any merit. But I'm leaving it in, because the puff-particles that are produced when an electron jumps from atom to atom, might be an interesting idea as they could cause some sort of helix / drag circuit by themselves.

### Matter - Anti - Matter

When small spinning toruses combine and form a pile that twists, bends and eventually bites its tail to form a new larger Torus, than the direction of the curls can go in two directions in relation to the rotation of the base structure; Clock-Wise (CW) or Anti-Clock-Wise (ACW). This function is an addition to the 4  movement that come into play:

a. The individual toruses spin around their axis.
b. The group (basis) rotates around its axis, a small shift generates the twists CW or ACW.
c. The newly generated Torus, spins around its axis in CW or ACW direction.
d. The torus winds and crawls forward thanks to the bindings.

When comparing the CW and ACW motion this is where the formation can become an electron (-) or a positron (+) Matter or Anti-Matter.

Z

### Annihilation

Annihilation is defined as "total destruction" or "complete obliteration" of an object; having its root in the Latin nihil (nothing). A literal translation is "to make into nothing". wiki

When an electron (e-) and a positron (e+) meet they unwind each other due to opposite twist-directions. Once un-winded the different parts can recombine in all kinds of different complimentary particle pairs.

### Twisting (Winding Up)

When taking the previous starting point of a torus generated out of a pile of toruses (Twisted-Torus-Rotor), we can see that when we have a small shift change that we get a twisted structure of winded-up coils. This way of winding-up entangles the different strings (piles) into one tight Toroid.

A 'twist' in the line forms a 'helix', and each helix acts as a propeller generating thrust and giving the torus the ability of converting rotational motion into forward motion, making it move through the Aether.

The more energy we apply by accelerating the Toroid, the more tight (compressed) it can get and the higher amount of twist it has -> more trust -> a more energetic particle body.

If the object is slowed down during particle collisions, than the number of twist can go down even to the point that one string is untied, detaching itself (shaken loose) from the Toroidal Group and curling itself up to its ground state, forming a new unique particle, and jetting away.
