Adding sociology and psychology panes to VisibLie_E8 MyToE Demonstration

These are more personal interest than hard math/science as the other panes – but they are, IMO, interesting asides.

The sociology pane deals with the idea of Old Testament Hebrew and New Testament Koine Greek Gematria. The histogram shows the distribution of words used in the Bible according to their gematria value in Hebrew or Greek. Each word in each verse is selectable and shown in the distribution. Each word in the verse is colored by their value in Hebrew (if Old Testament), Greek and English.
Note: Hebrew is properly presented from right to left.

The psychology pane deals with the idea of the mathematical beauty of music.

Hacking (virtual) Reality

This weekend I hacked a version of the Oculus Rift stereoscopic 3D headmounted displays using household items.

The main technique was from Andrew Noske.

But not following the instructions, I made it out of lightweight card stock and used an $8 3 pack of 3+ reading glasses, and a bit of velcro on a nylon strap (which holds the weight of the iPhone or Android from the brim of your favorite baseball cap).

The pictures only show 2 pair of glasses, but I added the third to fine tune the focus. Unlike Google Cardboard, this has a full screen field-of-view (Google’s is only a small circle in the center of the square left/right halves).

BTW – Some of the free Hasbro My3D games work great (sensing head motion and use the holes in the bottom for iPhone to control the buttons).

If you’re wanting hands free utility, the baseball cap as a head strap works better to accommodate the weight of the phone (which is a bit further out from Cardboard’s shorter/smaller focal length). Without this, it is a bit heavy on the bridge of the nose and pulls away from the eye-glass ear grips.

Avengers Tesseract Cosmic Cube

I finally got around to watching the Avengers movie and noticed that the Tesseract Cosmic Cube looked much like the hyper-dimensional projections that I make with laser etched optical crystal.

The blue light is projected from a multi-colored LED base.

While I do have tesseract projections, the E8 projection on my home page seems most similar. Here are a few blue crystal photos I’ve taken that are also similar.
