While it is easy for some readers to agree with the notion that one year of a dog's life is roughly equal to seven years of a human, though some adjust this value in relation to the age of a dog such that puppies exert more energy and therefore may burn off more than seven years of a human life... it is not common for some people to view human life spans being accelerated... much less comparable to that of the "fruit" (vinegar) fly (Drosophila melanogaster) used for population genetics and biology experiments. In a sense, humanity is in a big experiment and the experimental procedures being used are called social laws, economic policies, religious beliefs, etc..., all of which are cast in a deteriorating petri dish called the solar system which exerts limitations.

A reference to Many?

In speaking about limitations, we must note that the triplet code and the quantity of amino acids are both examples of limitation. In other words, we don't have a 6,000 coding system with billions of available amino acids. For that matter, those who are interested in numerology may or may not make note of the fact that the quantity of number patterns we humans use is very limited. Another word for limitation is conservation. And even when you include the topic of a supposed "large number" of 10122 and refer to it as a cosmological coincidence, we are still left with a limitation applied to the basic parameter of primitive enumeration known as the "1- 2- Many" organizational methodology and seen as a linguistic configuration for the development of number counting using words. (See: One, two, ... er, too many)

Hence, the "large" number becomes representative of the "many" (3 or more) (third position in number word usage amongst primitive... or historically basic cognitive orientations), just as does thinking in terms of more than three dimensions. Like some sort of as yet not widely recognized conservation of number usage applied as "base" models such as the zeros-and-ones application for computer programming. The binomial (0 and 1) configuration of basic computation ordering limits the development of computers just as does the triplet code in genetics, though a doublet or quadruplet code might well make us a strangely different species indeed. Let us now compare the fundamental particles found in physics and those with genetics, followed by a 64-squares game board that I created for imaginative (or correlational) genetics:

Elementary particles in physics Elementary Amino Acids
Elementary particles set up like a chess board A 64 Trigrams chessboard
A 64 "trigrams" chessboard
64 squares to a checker board 64 squares to a chessbooard

Along with the "64" similarity or "correlation" being compared to the 64 formula of amino acids in the genetic code, let us include the presence of the three types of mobility assigned to checkers and chess game pieces with respect to moving along horizontal, diagonal and vertical directions. It would be interesting to identify whether this is the dimensional plane(s) we find occurring in genetic configurations, and whether this too is part of a environmentally influenced conservation effect due to the ongoing incremental planetary deteriorations.

Note: the so-called "trigrams" are actually "bigrams" when you count the number of lines used in each three-patterned configuration:

Trigrams or Bigrams?

For those of you wanting to find something more fundamental to the environment which may have directed the development of the triplet code, we might venture in considering the carbon, hydrogen, oxygen (and nitrogen) elements since they play a vital role in the basic structure of life and are sometimes illustrated as a mnemonic abbreviation in classrooms as "CHON", though in addition to this 3-to-1 ratio group, Phosphorous and Sulphury are sometimes added. If we then venture into physics, we find the triplet formula as well as doublet configurations as predominant recurrences. However, there too is a limitation, a conservation of the quantity and type of particles to be found by human perception, whether it is assisted by tools or experiments or some other expressed imaginative exercise. If we provide a table of the elements, we must note that there is a limitation.

In other words, there are not a thousand... much less an endless array of elements. Is this due to the reason that there is an actual limited amount as we humans describe them, or is table due to a limitation of our human brain/perception processing that is undergoing an incremental deterioration in an environment which imposes restrictions on life forms to coincide with available resources in the manner in which they are constituted? In other words, is there actually a triplet code in different subjects (physics, genetics, etc...), or do we only think there are because this is part of the process for maintaining some type of equilibrium in a deteriorating environment? Would a non-deteriorating environment or one deteriorating at a different rate force a different set of parameters on life to maintain some semblance of equilibrium though we are headed down a drain?

For a short digression, let's now compare the above 3 (carbon, hydrogen, oxygen) + 2 (phosphorus, Sulphury) with the arrangement seen in our human dimension of taste as a similar type of patterning:

Three plus two taste receptors
How come we have five fingers and not just three?

Not to overlook the presence of two joints in the thumb and three joints in the other fingers or the three joints with both upper and lower leg/arm extremities) or that they represent a one-two-many configuration as seen in the following image:

Some readers no doubt question whether the "basic elements" as seen from our Earthly perspective are actually those to be found everywhere in the Universe in the same manner and proportion as we humans have calculated them. The same thing goes for the "fundamental" particles and for that matter, the amino acids with their triplet coding. Hence, can we can not necessarily trust such ideas... or at least do so with a reserved scepticism. Nonetheless, in the presence of an observable triplet code for our Earth-bound genetics, we can either say that the recurrence of the "one-two-three" is a dominant theme throughout the Universe or it is merely coincidental to the Earth due to its past patterns of activity. With respect to the idea of being stable or unstable, it appears that the one-two-three sequencing is a relatively stable occurrence... at least for now. Other number patterns have much shorter life spans and are thus less stable, as represented in human consciousness. For example, the fact that the triplet code in genetics persists, suggests it is relatively stable because the (environmental?) conditions which create a viable recurrence is also stable... or the disintegration (rate of change) is not currently measurable— mainly because no one is looking in this direction because such discussions are labeled as some sort of "fringe" perspective like astrology or numerology and is not "real" science nor philosophy. Whereas we can claim that "two" patterns are also stable, and that so is the "one", other patterns... due to lesser frequency and lack of abundance in different subjects, are less stable, just like the isotopes of elements. Metaphorically speaking, we can label the "1, 2, 3" either as major elements, or as stable isotopes of as yet unrecognized "elementals".

Which brings us back to considering what may have influenced the Triplet Code if not for a triple-patterned environmental event which has auxiliary patterns attached with it:

  • Such as the three-to-one pattern (three moments in one Sun).
  • Fusion of the 3 into 1 (and the "2" night/day sequence) by way of the slowing of the Earth's rotation coupled to the expanding Sun.
  • Triangle imprint of the Sun's (and Moon's) daily passage.

If we were to visualize the triangular passage of the Sun from different points on the Earth, the image would reflect one of those toy whirling wheels (toy wind wand as I call them), or an engine camshaft:

Triangles around the Earth Toy wind wand
The camshaft of an internal combustion engine

If we include a list of theories involving fundamental processes and activities, the presence of "three" is not uncommon such as the:

  • 3 laws of planetary motion (Kepler)
  • 3 laws of motion (Newton)
  • 3 laws of electromagnetic induction (Faraday)
  • 3 general laws of Thermodynamics (if we include the zeroth law, we have a 3-to-1 ratio)
  • 3 "ideal gas" laws: Robert Boyle's ~ J. Charles or J. Lussac's ~ Avogadro's
  • 3 Laws of Robotics (Asimov)
  • 3 laws of logarithms
  • etc...

Here's an example of how different perceptions can come up with different number patterns though the same subject is being discussed. Not doubt someone else with a penchant for some other number pattern could well come up with a different rendering... though the number pattern which becomes dominant is that which is used most often:

Three laws of Reflection
Reflection (used as a metaphor)
Two laws of reflection
Reflection and refraction at home & curved surfaces

However, some reader might well compile rules, laws, etc., which have an other-than-three distinction... but such a list has not made itself readily apparent to the extent of presenting us with a twos-ological, fours-ological, fives-ological, etc... philosophy being developed along the same lines as a threesological intent is being driven. In other words you may well encounter someone's philosophy which advances a number identity that is not "three", but they are not necessarily open to the idea that what they could be working on is a much larger consideration involving all the number patterns as the singular representation of an environmentally imposed conservation heading along a course of incremental deterioration that will create changes in the number pattern usage.

While some people have a favorite number that is not "three", they do not necessarily take the time to compile examples from multiple subject areas or claim it as some sort of universally important number. While some numbers appear to stick out in one or another person's mind such as the number 4, 5, 6 (666), 7, 13, etc... they have not as yet stuck out in human perception to the extent to which dichotomies and trichotomies have... including the often overlooked three-part succession whose number-patterning reference appears to refute the "3", such as in the old George Miller's "The Magical Number Seven, plus or minus two", which actually presents us with a 5-7-9 array, though some readers may want to include the "2" since it was mentioned. Here is one link concerning the number five: Why five fingers and not just three?

In seeking an answer to the question of why there is a Triplet Code (not only used in genetics but many other subject areas), we can claim that some examples arise due to linguistic borrowing, cultural imposition, and what we think we perceive. Utility plays a big part in whether or not we accept a given pattern reference. And even though one says tomato (short a) or another tomato (long a), they can both agree that they are speaking about the same item, even if one says it is a fruit and another says it is a vegetable. The same thing occurs in different religions when speaking of (a singular) God. And even though we have brand names for similar items, most people easily make the distinction about the basic object being spoken of whether it is a pair of shoes, car, computer, phone, etc. However, such people for example, are not customarily interested in looking for the details about the origin of an item such as a phone, though they may be aware of the experiments conducted by Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Watson which resulted in:

On March 7, 1876, the United States Patent Office granted to Bell patent no. 174,465, covering “The method of, and apparatus for, transmitting vocal or other sounds telegraphically…by causing electrical undulations, similar in form to the vibrations of the air accompanying the said vocal or other sounds.” ("Bell, Alexander Graham." Encyclopædia Britannica Ultimate Reference Suite, 2013.)

The same goes for the origin of the triplet code in genetics. Most people simply accept that which is offered by some instructor or what they read in a textbook without realizing that there exists a 3 to 1 ratio or that the pristine origin may have occurred a definable cyclical activity of the Sun with its three "moments" (dawn-noon-dusk), regardless if the idea is based on a supposition compiled by adding several elemental facts together. It makes for an entertaining read because for the inquisitive mind, it begs other questions to be pursued. Which I will not do at this time other than that already provided.

For science fiction buffs interested in time travel (amongst various other ideas such as teleportation, speed-of-light travel, replication, real-time genetic manipulation, inertia dampening, inter-dimensional shifts, etc...), one needs to take stock of the various ways in which time travel "devices" have been portrayed, with respect to the underlying geometric configuration. On this page: 16 Excellent Movie & TV Time-Travel Devices, I left a comment pointing out (in so many words) the fact that when we look at the different time travel mechanisms illustrated in motion pictures, television series, etc..., we note that there is an abundance of linear and circular models (viewed from the perspective) of a basic geometric pattern (which describes a limitation in human cognition), but that there is a stark absence of triangular forms. However, like other places I leave comments, the comment seems to have been deleted. Such geometric patterns may not be seen in an actual device like a telephone booth or delorean, but in the direction of travel. For example, in the old Time Tunnel television series the "tunnel" was circular and the travelers walked in a linear direction. The point to be made is that (at least for script writers), there is a severe limitation to the underlying cognitive orientation that is being applied. This is a deficiency that is being overlooked along with the idea that time travel may not be so much a physics problem as it is a (specific) genetics or (general) biological one. Then again, it may require adjustments in our thinking on both accounts in order to create more workable theories of actual time travel. And in thinking about time as well as the basic linear, circular, triangular configurations, a look towards the bottom of What is Time? page 6 may be of interest for some.

(While not quite a 4X4X4 (64) amino acid configuration, it will suffice for the moment.)

Other references: (Note that they represent a limited reference and that they typically repeat themselves for some examples.)

One might also compile a comprehensive list of every single time travel event in every single movie, television show, comic book, etc., with an intent of describing the basic underlying time-travel act/movement. For example, when Superman wants to save Lois Lane from being buried alive, he "encircles" the Earth. Another idea involves heading "straight" towards the Sun and the speed of light before reversing direction. Other references involve some time circle, globe, or "surrounding" destruction of the environment when a time travel event occurs. In short, are compilation (beyond a mere mental tabulation) would indicate the presence of a limited imagination taking place. It doesn't matter how you may embellish the underlying basic geometric configuration with this or that actor/actress, language, scenery, story-line, etc..., there is a limitation which is sorely troubling, no matter how someone may try to rationalize the fact away by whatever embellished excuse they may offer. The human depiction of time travel is in a very primitive state of expression (not to mention development).

A short while after coming across this Time Travel information, I decided to compile a few thoughts on the subject beginning with a look at Time itself, which preceded the short sojourn into time travel: What is Time page 1
