"TRIADS Structure of Everything"

Brian Miller



In December 2001 I became interested in something that I had never conscientiously heard of before. That something was "Theory of Everything". I began to see structures of THREE (two and one) all around and I made the decision as I felt it important to start recording these details, so as to try and make some sense of it all at a later date. With this I felt had the answer before I knew the question, which sounds a crazy thing to say, but it's true that's how I felt. Everything I saw before me fell into place, when there was no out of place in the first instant. What you see before you is that record of those details as well as a record as such leading to the date shown at the bottom of this page. See what you make, of what seems to me, to be a very clear and simple concept. The label for two and one structures or structures of three is TRIAD(S).


Our world in which we live in is a world, Universe of TRIADS. Most things are a collection of TRIADS, as each TRIAD structure (BODY) is achieved the process starts again and again; things really do come in THREES. If you take humans, you would not think of humans being a collection of TRIADS but we are in many ways. See FAMILY, See NUCLEUS OF A CELL, See ATOMS. Every structure as I see it is built up of TRIADS, though not all TRIADS are apparent.

To assist me in conveying my message, you may see either (1) (2) or (3) before certain words which will denote what that word is equal to or represents. 1 and 2 represents or is equal to a body a thing that interacts with force and 3 represent or is equal to force. Colours are also available to assist; red is equal to or represents a body a thing that interacts with force and blue is equal to or represents force. One thing that is most important that you the reader understand right from the onset that the two things interacting with force DO NOT have to be mass or matter or whatever you want to call it; one of the two things could be just a sound or even a thought. My reasoning for mass and force as the primal structure is that mass and force are the fundamental components of physics and as I see it fundamental to the structure of the four forces of nature. You will find many examples on this (Michael Eck's Book of Threes) web site many of which are reference materials that have been duplicated verbatim:

Books of Threes: A subject reference Tricolopedia

When you look at things try looking at the core, you may then see as I do. How I came to my conclusions was through the use of EINSTEIN'S favorite device, the thought experiment. People may look at each section and say what is the big deal this is already known, THREES or TRIADS have been well documented over the years. Yes I agree that these things may be common knowledge with the number THREE; however what is possibly not known is that everything is part of a TRIAD BODY and the all important structure of the TRIAD, which to date I have not seen documented anywhere bar Dobereiner (1780 - 1849), is 3 = 2 + 1, THREE is a structure of two and one. The answer lies I feel within the generic.


As I see it a body is paired, one on one with other bodies in which they interact through force; each interaction of bodies through force creates a body in itself which is the GENERIC TRIAD structure, this system is continuously duplicated and never fails. A BODY is always without exception a constituent of the interactive TRIAD BODY or BODIES, i.e. one BODY connects to another BODY or BODIES through force creating a generic TRIAD structure of BODY - FORCE - BODY which applies to everything in the Universe. Each BODY has a one to one relationship with BODIES that surround, either direct or indirectly through the use of an interface, which is equal to FORCE. The reason why people don't see the TRIAD structure is because they don't break events down to the most basic level. One event is possibly made up of many TRIADS, as one ends the next one begins seamlessly.

What most important question(s) would we all ask, for all things? What would be the most basic question(s) I believe they would obviously be structure and dynamics, how does (3) it (1) look and what does it (2) do? (Even these questions are a TRIAD) I believe that both structure and dynamics appear as the same in all things, however I think it is possible that others asking the question, what does it look like and what it does, don't have in their mind what I think is the most important, a generic answer. There lies the true common denominator, one generic answer to both structure and dynamics; I feel my hypothesis delivers that in a very simple way. What may assist you to see my point as I see is firstly Velocity TRIAD Cycle and secondly Energy Transfer a TRIAD Cycle, I believe all things are a constituent of a TRIAD and our Universe a TRIAD in itself is a collection of all these TRIADS, however to enable one's self to see this, you have to look at all things in a very basic general way.

First question: what does it look like, its structure, you will see TRIAD.

Second question: what does it do, see laws of motion, you will see TRIAD.

All interaction is in units of three. Whether it is one person talking to another or one talking to a thousand, the masses interact with the source one to one, action reaction is in units of THREE; FORCE is always a constituent of these units.

There is possibly another way I can convey my message, through the medium of the movies. There is one movie that I saw in early 2002 which said it all for me. The movie was "MINORITY REPORT" with Tom CRUISE. The movie was set in the future and with a police type body ensuring there was no murders. The unit was called Pre-crime and the tool they used to stop crime was to see future events through the PRECOGS. The precogs consisted of THREE special people. The structure was two twin males and a female, the female was the most powerful of the THREE. This was probably taken from the structure of an atom, then again may be not. This is the type of TRIAD I am talking about with the all important two and one structure.


- If I have the structure of everything then it is logical to assume that I have the structure of Theory of Everything. I am sure that when Theory of Everything is finally unveiled the structure will be a TRIAD comprising of bodies plus force.


Reference material is duplicated verbatim. The possible numbers (1) (2) or (3) before a word or a word highlighted red or blue, does not have to be mass or force, they just represent mass, two bodies', two things that interact with force and (3) of course represents force. Any items presented can represent FORCE and roles can move as force does [as does the transfer of ENERGY], this ensures that action, dynamics, movement continues. See physics dictionary description.

(1) = (a body) / (2) = (a body) / (3) = FORCE / RED = (a body) / BLUE = FORCE

"The Big Three" - Is this phrase being played out?

by gethigh on Sun Jun 17, 2012 5:19 am:

Everyone in the media seems to be creating a new "Big three" for every single team and ends up talking about "Big threes" ad nauseum. It's getting pretty old, no? So far I've heard a "Big three" for Celtics, Heat, Spurs, Knicks, OKC & Lakers. Might be missing a couple, too. Unrelated but s***, now they are starting to refer to groups of golfers as "The Big Three".

The term's always going to be around as long as teams have three major players. So I don't think it'll ever really phase out. But as far as 'Big Three' being as big of a buzzword as it was in 2010? Yeah, a little.

by Groove on Sun Jun 17, 2012 6:55 am:

It's stupid to call yourself a big 3 when you haven't won shet.

by BadNFluenz on Sun Jun 17, 2012 7:48 am

Yeah I've noticed that too, all of a sudden every teams 3 best players are The Big Three.

by springz on Sun Jun 17, 2012 7:57 am:

They didn't create the nickname. Most teams that will contend will have a "big 3" of some sort because that's the most high salary players you can have with the salary cap structure.

by taii1234 on Sun Jun 17, 2012 8:03 am:

I agree. There's really only 3 teams that have a legit Big 3. Celtics (Allen, KG, Pierce), Heat (Wade, Bosh, LeBron) and San Antionio to an extent (3 hall of famers - Duncan, Manu, Parker). All the rest are not legit. Yes a team may have 3 good players, but not on the hall of famer caliber. I think we need to use the Hall of Fame test to really weed out the real Big 3s and the fake ones. If your top 3 players aren't going to the HOF after retirement, than its not a Big 3.

by WD on Sun Jun 17, 2012 8:05 am:

The media started calling them that.

by Jazza2319 on Sun Jun 17, 2012 8:35 am

While i agree that simply labeling your best players as a "big 3" is silly, i don't think HOF is the right criteria for it. I'd say something more like each player being top 5 at their position. But on the topic of big 3's, the literal term is just something made up by the media to glorify players and create rivalries (see knicks/heat espn coverage). What is worth looking into though is how much the game has changed over the past 15 years and its something Dirk alluded to in his post-game press conference after OKC knocked them out. In the early 00's it seemed like a one-man show could product results, but a "dynamic duo" was seen as necessary to be a top team. Now its moved from 2 stars to 3, and hopefully the trend continues to the point where in 2020 it's more "everybody needs to be able to shoot" like it was back in the old nba days. I cant believe how shallow the talent of the nba has become, at any time there could be as many as 3 guys on the court who aren't threats to shoot so defenses can sag off them. What the hell are these "defensive" specialists or guys doing in their off time? I don't see any reason why 4 out of the 5 guys on the court shouldn't be a shooting threat to open up spacing for the entire team. This is the lack of focus on fundamentals that got popular after USA got bronze in 04, and it really hasn't improved. Sorry, rant over.

"Big 3" was played out in 2008 about a week into the Celtics run, after I heard the phrase for the hundreth time in a week on espn.

by Ballings7 on Sun Jun 17, 2012 10:19 am:

The Celtics of the 80s and Spurs is where the "big three" really started coming out in description and label. Celtics patterned their team after the Spurs of the mid-2000s (04/07)... especially considering they won the title the year before.

by drejeronfire on Sun Jun 17, 2012 10:43 am:

Before the current Celtics, Heat, etc. people were using it to describe the Nets trio of post-microfracture Jason Kidd, Richard Jefferson, and Vince Carter.

by pg16kid on Sun Jun 17, 2012 11:06 am:

Jamison, Arenas and Butler was the original big 3

by NoOffense on Sun Jun 17, 2012 11:11 am:

Hell, I remember people referring to the Gillbert Arenas, Antawn Jamison and Caron Buyler Wizards as "The Big Three." In addition, the Kidd, Carter and Jefferson Nets were also called that. This isn't anything new.

The following is an example that gives the impression of a prepared answer to a prepared question. It is my experience that most people do not readily have a "list of threes" in their possession, whether written or memorized, unless they have been actively collecting them; taken from a variety of subject areas. And then for someone who is making such a collection to come upon someone who is asking the very (at present) esoteric question that they just happen to have an answer for, is suspiciously questionable, particularly when the list giver does not provide information as to how their list was derived. It is easy to appear to be knowledgeable when you have pre-arranged an answer to a question devised accordingly.

I have provided a few additional references [in brackets] to some of the answers that might otherwise remain misunderstood or unknown to a reader not familiar with items commonly known to many living in an American culture. As a researcher, it is important to make an attempt to provide clarity to answers to readers that live in different cultures and do not take certain items of information as a point of general knowledge; in other words, for granted. Yet, I remain fully aware that even my own additions in the present case may not be enough for some readers. (A case in point: When I was quite young, still in gradeschool, a neighbor took me to a cubscout meeting. The leader of the group began talking about Aesop's Fables. I was surprise and rather astonished that no one but myself had any knowledge of Aesop or his stories. Nor had they heard about Socrates, Plato or Aristotle. Upon learning this, I wanted nothing to do with cubscouts.) While some stories such as fairytales and children's rhyme-stories may make cross-cutural appearances, I have labeled such examples none-the-less. It is also important, for historical reasons, that we assume information may be found by some future anthropologist or historian who are naive about our "ancient" culture and have no other reference in which to compare information for further understanding. In other words, they may have no Rosetta Stone to effect a translation; thereby leaving interpretations up to personal experiences, prejudices, etc...
