As I pointed out to C. Vandergraaf, a Starfish is an echinoderm
(Gr. "spiny skin") and all echinoderms have a larval stage which
is as bilaterally symmetric as we are, and has 4 legs. Therefore,
a Starfish is fundamentally a 4-legged animal. The larval stage
swims around, and like fish has two paired legs (fins). The adult
is really a sessile animal and doesn't walk around.
"Legs" are really a property of land animals since their main
function is "standing" locomotion in a high gravity environment.
Sea creatures generally don't have "legs" because they are in a
weightless environment. The only real exception is sea-life that
"swims" extensively, like fish, and there again, you find 2 sets
of paired fins, which again are necessary for "pitch, roll and yaw"
control of the 3-axis animal.
The upshot is, and I feel sorry for people without the Physics
expertise to understand this, that:
1. Only a "quadratic space", that is a quadratic metrical space
such as we live in where the Pythagorean Theorem holds true,
will allow a solid object to freely rotate.
2. Having thus determined that we must live in a "quadratic space"
we immediately discover that the "cartesian coordinate system"
is the simplest structure that will provide the mechanical
basis for a "machine". This is why the human body is a
3-Axis orthogonal machine. (The Cross of Christianity BTW
symbolizes this scientific fact).
3. Having determined that the human body must be "Cartesian"
in SHAPE geometrically, then the next thing we find out is
that Gravity "bends" the axes of this structure (curves
4. This results in the "bending" (or curvature) of the vectors
of psychometry space, since it "bends" the Cartesian growth
of the brain. ("brain gravity" does this, quantum gravity
BTW not terrestrial gravity according to Sir Penrose).
This phenomena mediates the celebrated "Secular Trend" in
human growth we've heard so much about (and the Flynn Effect).
5. This "curvature" in Psychometry space is the explanation
(and proof) of "God". Thus we see, that it is GRAVITY which
causes GOD. Einstein's theory it turns out, is the Mathematical-
Physics explanation of God. God bless Al Einstein.
6. This stunning phenomenology has been rigorously proved by
Hammond (1994, 1997).
7. The Church can take a much deserved vacation, and a pay raise,
the scientific proof of God (SPOG) has been discovered.
Perhaps my future biographers and followers will be able to
come up with a simpler heuristic explanation of this for you
using colored illustrations, movies, t.v. etc. But in the meantime
it unfortunately remains very much of a professional scientist's
domain. Therefore, only the very privileged few have access to the
fact that there actually is a "real God". Meanwhile, I'm working on
a popular book for you, which should be out in awhile.
