Note: In the initial creation of this page, which has now undergone some additions, I had awakened early intending to work on other pages at another site and found the following information just gushing forth. Rounding up the images took a bit more time, but for the most part, in the main, the whole of the following came at a single sitting.

While many images could be used to represent a "threes" perspective and analysis of different subjects, the following examples is one of many in that it not only displays three different (labeling) models of the brain (with respect to Paul McLane's Triune brain evolutionary idea), but also amalgamates the subjects of anatomy, biology and religion... though many other subject areas could well be used. I am using it here as a reference for another webpage on another website I am currently working on dealing with the need for women to toss out their antiquated Archetypal Wardrobe in order for the female psyche to come unto its own without being leashed to the multi-various tetherings of male oppression that women have endured for too long:

Three models of the same brain.

In the contemplations of a different kind (or type) of perspective which is promoted as an hypothesis, its merit must be judged on whether or not it adds anything to understanding, or is it being used to deliberately increase mystique, misinformation and misunderstanding because of one or more ulterior motives. As such, those with an axe to grind very often misinterpret between an hypothesis, theory and belief. And if in a position of authority, can wield unjudicial accusations as well as condemnations which can result in social actions very reminiscent of those who burned individuals (witches, children, etc.), caused them to drink poison (Socrates), or placed them into an asylum (typically wealthy women in England), so that one's own hear-say to truth can be accepted as the "proper" world view to adopt (or there are dire consequences if they don't). Thus let me ask, what heresy of truth do you advocate that you hold so dear to your heart and/or mind and/or soul that you will not permit alternative conceptualizations? What sort of idealization do you prefer:

  1. Use of Zero as if it were a wild card in an unrecognized game of concept creation?
  2. Singular concepts such as the ONE god, one way of thinking, one ideology/belief, one composite of human consciousness, One great good/one great evil, one realization (such what the following image describes)000?

All the many ideas which are made up

  1. Androgynous (2-halves) masquerading as dual, polar, dichotomous concepts such as the Yin and Yang?
  2. Proposed trigram configurations which are actually one and two-line bigrams?
  3. Various three-patterned groupings singularly labeled to conceal a polarized position such as in the many formed religious Trinities?
  4. 4-labeled ideas which are actually 3-to-1 groupings?
  5. An obsessioned 5-pattern focus from which is derived a proposed Universal law or a referenc to it being the number of man as seen in the pentagram?
  6. Arbitrarily establish it as half of a commercialized unit of production? (6 to 12 — 12 X 12 = 144, or 12 is one short of a baker's dozen)
  7. Some serialized 7 cataloguing to propose an assumed Natural law with unseen power?
  8. Use of an 8 reference such as in spider legs to promote the idea of throwing a wrench into other enumerated ideas?
  9. Apply the value of nine to a belief in perfection because it is the last symbol used, but overlook that it represents limitation in human concept formation?
  10. Then again, we might use another reference extolling the repetition of 12 to the Christian Religion:

    The Real truth about religion and its origins
  11. Or perhaps your preference is more in line with some form of dualistic repetition like that of infant babbling, computer binarianism, or parallel universes, or some antagonistic representation used for one another commercialization?

A study of "Threes" requires the cataloguing of different examples of what a given researcher thinks is a pattern— or composite-of-three elements, and also those which are not... though they may have been and have "regressed", fused or are in the beginning stages of what appears to be the direction of developing along a trek which appears to be or might be or we consider will be "three" oriented. On those occasions at which we discover some pattern other-than-three in terms of excess, we must determine if there is some associated "three-ness" such as the five fingers and toes with three underlying finger and toe bones, not to mention three layers of skin (which correspond to three burn divisions), three layers to veins and arteries, with a three formula involving Veins- Arteries- Capillaries, three-part microtubules, etc. And even though the five-fingers and toes are a recurring theme, is it a fluke in the sense that nature slipped upon in allowing it to occur when so many other biological occurrences are structured on less than three formulas? No less, do we permit detractors of the "threes" ideology to insert examples of the octopus' or star fishes more-than-three multiple arms as a refutation, when these "arms" examples are neither toes nor fingers, not to mention they too speak of a limitation... a conservation that is being imposed on the biology of all life forms by a deteriorating environment?

German Umlauts and the Indian AUM

When some people look at the alphabet and number systems developed by humanity they think such behavior represents intelligence, without also intelligently looking at such formulas of symbols as expressions of limitations, even though... for example, the German language has three extra umlaut vowels (Ä Ö Ü), yet the expression of the word "Umlaut" and the particular vowels, is overlooked in its similarity and expression of the Indian "Om" which is actually the three letters "A-U-M" (derived from a coalescence of A and U). "Umlaut" and "Om" appear to be quite similar and also are examples of an on-going environmentally imposed conservation. This conservation is seen in the use of condensation and symbolization being used in text messaging, short hand writing, computer languages, mathematical and chemistry formulas, etc... Our behavior is being forced into conclaves creating mixings and blendings instead of expansion. For example, we have number symbols from 0 to 9 which afford us what appears to be an unlimited numbering system, yet we only use a small fraction and in counting out large numbers, we rely on a three-patterned grouping as expressed by (ones-tens-hundreds)... comma... (thousands-ten thousands- hundred thousands)... comma... etc... Another example of limitation is found in genetics with respect to amino acids. The amount is finite and uses a pattern-of-three grouping called a codon seen in DNA and RNA.

Upon bringing up the example of making a connection between the 3-vowel German Umlauts and the group's apparent similarity to the Indian chant "Om", a digression should be permitted in order to provide an enlarged reference. I think the source is an encyclopedia of symbols or the Britannica that I read several decades ago, and used as an example on the 6th column of the "Buckland's Third Revolution" Poster that was printed back in 1996-97. You can see some "squashed" images here: Threes Poster images. Copies have been archived at Berkeley University.

The 3s symbol for Om

Om, in Hinduism and other religions chiefly of India, a sacred syllable that is considered to be the greatest of all the mantras, or sacred formulas. The symbol Om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m (in Sanskrit, the vowels a and u coalesce to become o), which represent several important triads: the three worlds of earth, atmosphere, and heaven; the three major Hindu gods, Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva; and the three sacred Vedic scriptures, Rg, Yajur, and Soma. Thus Om mystically embodies the essence of the entire universe. It is uttered at the beginning and end of Hindu prayers, chants, and meditations and is freely used in Buddhist and Jaina ritual also. From the 6th century, the written symbol designating the sound is used to mark the beginning of a text in a manuscript or an inscription. The syllable is discussed in a number of the Upanishads, which are the texts of philosophical speculation, and it forms the entire subject matter of one, the Mandukya. It is used in the practice of Yoga and is related to techniques of auditory meditation. In the Puranas the syllable is put to sectarian use; thus the Saiva mark the lingam, or sign of Siva, with the symbol for Om, whereas the Vaishnava identify the three sounds as referring to a trinity composed of Vishnu, his wife Sri, and the worshipper.

This number ("3") also is an expression of the social order in its fullness and particularly the threefold structure of Indo-European society. According to Georges Dumezil, if all social structures are analyzed, it will be found that this threefold division only evolved into an all embracing world-view and value structure among particular peoples. Although its origins are unknown, this threefold division of duties or orders is perfectly clear. It is given expression in various triads which easily embrace religion, warfare and work; kingship, martial strength and fecundity; the priesthood, power and productivity; priests, warriors and producers (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva); Brahmans, Kshatriyas (warriors) and Vaishyas (farmers and merchants), Shudras or slaves being as it were outcasts; Jupiter, Mars and Quirinus; Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches; the senatorial, equestrian and plebeian orders. Interaction takes place between the socio-political and the mythological organizations, each structure being reflected in the other, but they do not always develop at the same pace. Myth changes more slowly than reality, although sometimes it may anticipate it.

A "threes" researcher is not limited to researching "threes" or any given number pattern, just as much as they are not restricted to one subject area, even though numbers and subject areas are themselves limitations of exploration though which and with which one can blaze out trails in the method and manner which may appear to be rudimentary, simplistic, or unorthodox from the perspective of so-called experts who have carved out a niche' in a given subject area and think they are THE reigning expert, along with those who convince them of such a distinction because they too want to be recognized as a fellow explorer with all the best techniques and equipment available. It is the type of arrogance which revealed itself when the government's resources were pitted against a private organization in pursuit of unraveling the genome. The government group lost, but the loss was socially mitigated by the Celera Corporation accepting an undisclosed influx of more resources that would not only assist them in further explorations in their "impoverished" means and methods (Celera sequenced the human genome at a fraction of the cost of the public project, approximately $3 billion of taxpayer dollars versus about $300 million of private funding.); which assisted the government from being seen as less capable (protected it from "losing face"), despite all the resources it came to bear on the race to decode (map) the genome.

Different forms of labeling abound, and each may have its merits for a given researcher's interests at a given point and place of their research. However, let us take an example of how words used as labeles can be substituted ith a numerical system such as in the following simple example, used to point out a larger philosophical issue:

Word labels being substituted with numerical references

Using "three" as a base, we "Threesologists" explore all currents of thought and behavior in order to identify the type of limitations being used and how they may or may not correlate with all other subjects, using the already recognized research methods found in mathematics, philosophy, medicine, mechanics, etc..., and those tools we create for ourselves, even though they may bring refutations of those skilled in the usage of a given research methodology and expect all others to do as they do in order to confirm to them that they are correct in their assumptions and the educated guesstimations. In other words, the so-called expertise which seeks to limit alternatives means, modes and methods is embraced like a sacred system of Belief like so many religious adherents who believe their world-view is THE explanation and means of correctly appraising all things under all conditions. In any respect, regardless of the methodology employed irrespective of subject, the "many" is subjected to some process of being arranged into the few. Like the E pluribus unum "Out of many, one" motto used in the U.S., it is a mentality we find in numerous areas such as religion's insistence that the is ONE God, though civilizations in the past observed many.

Similarly, in biology, we find the many millions of life forms being subjected to a process of reduction whereby the idea of a singular beginning, or some basic singular profile such as Three Life Domains or we could add to this a list of other contemplations which can develop into a long list of compressed orientations involving only a few originators of the many who follow in their footsteps. If not a three pattern then we find a two-pattern or a one-pattern such as the Theory of Everything, or Grand Unified Theory are expressions of a compartmentalization resting on the presumption that many ideas can be condensed into some model of unification. Such behavior suggests that the human species is being subjected to an environmental and/or biological (and let us include social) condition(s) that is/are forcing the issue as if it were a matter of life and death, though we are inclined to think that when someone uncovers something basic or fundamental, they can not be out-done by someone else finding something more basic. And yet, with respect to money, the more the merrier is the rule-of-thumb, though the status of wealth subjects one to be viewed as the singular most wealthy person or part of a small "1%" group.

Though we have lots of words, they are subjected to a process via gammer and linguistics which seek to unravel the existence of basic features, yet the usage of such processes are not necessarily subjected to a similar type of scrutiny in the sense that they are representative of the end result of an unrecognized behavior with inclined limitations. In other words, though a sports team may strive for a high number of points, they do so in the context of being recognized as "number 1"... the best, the fastest, the highest, the tallest, the shortest, the prettiest, the wealthiest, the most sincere, the strongest, etc... As a recurring behavior that some may refer to as normal and natural, we must consider that it is only normal and natural due to our circumstances on a planet whose resources are dwindling... and thus forcing us to adopt behaviors to coincide with environmental deteriorations... a process of reduction... of limitation... and are not developing, as an active contemplation for the whole species, a way of life that seeks to actually expand beyond the forces which causes us to exhibit behaviors engaged in one or another limitations... conservations... such as even death itself. While categorization is dependent on perspective, not the intent to condense the quantity into features attached to a small number value. However, people very often do not go out of their way to look for basic structures in multiple subjects just like they do not go out of their way to go in the other extreme. It appears that most of us adopt a middle ground, even though each of us devises personal systems involving one or more basic compartmentalizations of information that we may or may not mix and match with other information... depending on whether we use a vocabulary which is restricted or restricts our perceptions.

Let's take a look at some condensations of thought, though a reader might indulge in the past time of searching for representative samples of a different number value; noting I have incorporated some the reader may not customarily come across or even think about because there are no customary discussions of a particular grouping such as the 3 categories of leadership: Manager, Assistant manager, Third man (sometimes seen in grocery stores):

Tricycle foundation emblem and introducton

If we look at the names of gangs, we see one-word, two-word and three-word phrases most often, with 4 and 4-word labels more rare. However, a pattern-of-two appears to be most prominent, coinciding with what I believe to be a contrary mindset that has difficulty in seeing a third option. I explored this idea years ago: Criminal 2's page 2. I have not updated the gang list, but you can find one at the following link in the continuing list of examples of condensation:

In such a practice culture of business, political and religious correctness, a "Threes" research project is only permitted to exist if it coincides to and with the standards adopted by those who presume themselves to be experts in their respective fields of research and/or domains of daily participation. All others are outsiders. For example, I am not allowed to originate the concept of an "Archetypal Wardrobe" that promotes the need for women to throw out their present forms, fads and fashions of Archetypes and other "New Age" associations which very often require a retreat to some long-ago system of ideological referencing such as in the usage of Tarot cards, Subtle energy interpretations, Astrological content, etc., which may be intermixed with gemology, Yin/Yang-ology, etc... in order to remove themselves from a long history of male oppression that forces them where, when, what and how to wear a proscribed limit of mental and emotional garments as a means to keep the female psyche enslaved, indentured, and impressed with the arrogance of the male psyche-ego. Indeed, how dare I pursue such a course for examining the female psyche to unveil the many abuses that some women use against their own kind in pursuit of control or the ol' mighty dollar, if it further entails the adoption of an antipathy towards the alphabetic LGBTQ cult; because its collective behavior represents an antiquity of varying dichotomous-thought-processing (reminiscent of schizophrenic ambivalence) developed in response to male-dominant forms of restriction... and does not provide women (or similarly-minded men) with a sanctuary, salvation, or productive salvo of gender militancy called feminism, from which can somehow emerge a New Woman, a New Species, a New Entity that has fully freed itself from a history of successive domination. No less, let us view it as an unconscionable act of disgusting intellectualization that I should use my knowledge of threes and other subject areas to confront the many hypocrisies in business, government, religion and the LGBTQ nonsense with its despicable charade being fostered on the public.

A Study of "Threes" is non-conventional thinking... It is a way of looking at multiple subject areas by reducing information to numbers (and sometimes geometric forms), but that the assigned numbers themselves may not necessarily indicate quantity, just a place-value in a three-patterned sequence. Or put in another way, it is conventional thinking subjected to a process of re-thinking within the parameters of a model presently being developed, and will no doubt one day find its way as a subject amongst others taught in Universities around the world. Whereas it has some small measures of interest by individuals harboring the realm of more conventionalized studies, those individuals generally tend to set their interest aside because others amongst "their kind" do not share a similar interest... perhaps mainly because there is no College degree offered in the process or that they are unable to recognize any application which will provide them with an incentive, be it a financial reward, or shared entertainment which is Nationally, if not Internationally recognized.

A study of threes, or the "Threes Phenomena" which are 'Patterns-of-Three' found in a variety of subjects with different symbols (numbers, words, letters, sounds, tastes, nuances, etc...), which may or may not be combined with other patterns; necessarily entails a study of zero-ology, onesology, twosology, foursology, fivesology, sixology, sevenology, eightology, nineology, etc...

In fact, in "the other fields" of studying number-related patterns found in multiple areas of interest— called numerology and mathematics— some traditional numerologists and mathematicians ("the other guys") may have started out by recognizing the recurrence of one or more number patterns and then applied this type of research model to other areas of interest where numbers and number patterns are easy to detect or transcribe from non-numbered items identified perceptually, whereby some of them pursued an interest to the point of creating a list of different occurrences of different number patterns. A few become tide to a traditional form of numerology while others may move on to become an instructor of mathematics. However, when we look at traditional number-research approaches, we also find traditional philosophies attached as an explanation for such occurrences of the observed patterns. For example, particular numbers may be labeled as being:

  • Sacred, super-natural, or superior (such as in the form of a Trinity or Trimurti or a Meditation chant such as "OM" which is actually "AU-M" with the A and U fusing together and pronounced as an "O").
  • Sub-consciously practiced as a cultural expression (noted by cultural anthropologists as an internalized distinction that users may not be aware of).
  • Superstition (lucky/unlucky... portentous and/or enigmatic)

Yet, a Threesological approach necessarily entails a writhen or mental catalogue of the many different patterns in order to be able to access that there is a limitation not only to the numbers, but apparently the types of application. As stated before on other pages in this research journal, a graph of the different number patterns can be plotted in order to provide a visual aid for those whose memories are not configured to keep a running count (frequency) of the various patterns. This limitation signals a species-wide phenomena that must otherwise come from some internal disposition, and/or is caused by some external imposition. This is why we have a DNA and RNA with a triplet code and not some fluctuating other code. And though we may include the Earth in a list of patterns-of-three, it itself is not a pattern-of-three unless we include other planets such as Mercury and Venus, or think to have a category of "threes" which permits singularity or duality because it supports all of the other patterns-of-three occasioned with human activity.

Again, it is not that humanity can not think or act in patterns less or more than three, it's just that certain patterns appear to be more frequent than others and the quantity of numbers which occur is a very small set of number patterns when the entire system of numbers is taken into account. In other words, we have trillions of numbers but use only a handful in a repetitious manner. The cause of this appears to be environmental. To be more explicit, it is the environment which caused the development of life to subsist on a recurrence of three macromolecules called DNA, RNA and Proteins whose structures represent small number patterns such as the triplet code. However, it is a triplet code which has a singularity accompanying it, just like we find in the concept of the Christian Trinity, with its "3 persons in 1 god" reference. And though those possessing an obsession with religion may want to use such a reference to bolster their beliefs, the analogy is not meant to suggest such a connection. It is meant to demonstrate that the same environmental event which influenced the development of the Christian concept of the Trinity is the same event which influenced the "3 and 1" pattern found in DNA, RNA, and Proteins. While some may want to view this as a "four"- pattern, the 3 to 1 pattern is more helpful in my research, because it enables distinctions of separation and fusion to keep a "prominent position providing more profitable patterns".

Let's take a look at these 3 to 1 patterns presented in a 3 to 1 pattern (3 biological examples to 1 religious example). In the case of DNA and RNA, three are the same, but one is different, albeit a part of the whole. I use parenthesis not only to differentiate the three from the one, but to initiate the appearance of a mathematical distinction in that we separate three place values (ones, tens, hundreds) with a comma, though in other examples a word made be used to provide a conjunction or a taken-for-granted pause in a verbal expression or other behavior.

3 "to" 1 Ratio examples:

  • (1 of 3 biopolymers) DNA: (Adenine- Cytosine- Guanine), Thymine
3 the same and 1 is different in DNA and RNA
  • (2 of 3 biopolymers) RNA: (Adenine- Cytosine- Guanine), Uracil
  • (3 of 3 biopolymers) Proteins: primary (secondary, tertiary, quaternary)... three contain "ribbons", one structure does not.

  • 3 colored horses of the Apocalypse (Red- White- Black), and 1 Pale horse. (Even though Black and White are not actually colors in a rainbow or colored spectrum sense.) However, we can also describe the so-called four horsemen in the following manner: 3 Earthly-bound Horsemen plagues: War- Famine- Pestilence and 1 Heaven/Hell-bound Horsemen plague: Death.

Here is a link to other three-to-one ratios: Let's Talk Peace page 14

The so-called seven basic colors actually have an underlying 3-based formula in the sense of three additive and three subtractive colors. Whereas some readers may focus on the "seven" aspect of the colors in a rainbow, others learn to discern other details, such as when a group uses the rainbow as the symbol to represent a presumed multi-racial composite, they are in fact not representing humanity in any magnanimous gesture of desired fellowship, but the multi-flavored orientations of an antiquated lingam (penis) and yoni (vagina) preoccupation as idols around which their social world revolves... similar to the ego-centricity practiced by the Christian church when it vilified non-believers as to its view that the Earth... and hence the church, was at the center of the Universe, as defined by their ego-centricity.

Colors from a prism like those in a rainbow 3 additive and 3 subtractive colors
Colors of the rainbow used by the LGBTQs to voice their ego-centricity

The spectrum of colors in the rainbow displayed on a flag as a symbol by the dispersed cults of the LGBTQ orientation is the portrait of a vain and pretentious world-view of Ego-centricity in the current Era. It is the expression of an underlying metaphorized adulteress and incestuous inclination of rapacious hedonism once advocated in the run-amuck orgies of antiquity by cultic fertility worshippers. In ancient India, Rome and elsewhere... the old mentality has re-emerged... not as an evolved consciousness of human spirit seeking to implement a genuine character of progressive development for all of humanity to embrace, but as the vagabond troupe of an historicized familial lineage whose offspring now "come out" to engage in socialized venues (that were once practiced in secrecy) as "Lesbinist" (feminist Lesbian) exercises of self-empowered (masturbatory) intellectualisms deliberately engendered as virgin birth forms of public vilification against an idealized larger populace they discolor as infidels who are little to blame for individualized attacks against their ways of life, but are blamed for not only social protections but social projections of their inflated self-worth concealing deep levels of insecurity and self-flagellation, shielded by one or another of their many schematized pontifications.

The New Kilroy for the present Age of Irrationality

Yet is it not enough that the public adopts a live and let live philosophy, they must be forced to endure a yearly exhibitionism of an inebriated consciousness harboring the shadows of lost souls seeking some refuge, some sanctuary of sanity from so-called normalized societies— with 1) despotic forms of Democracy, 2) hypocritical religions and 3) psychopathic forms of legalized criminality amongst Corporations and small businesses wielding capitalism as a tool box of ready-made implements and weapons to be used against a public that is interpreted as refusing to enfranchise them not as equals, but as superior-equals; in an idealized frame of mind that presumes itself a tour de force, an avant garde, THE Renaissance of some New Age truth, beauty, justice fraternity and equality... that so many of us view as the commonality of a cult's neurotically-tinged selfies akin to a 'kilroy carving' of "I Was Here"... because they think the world should remember them as they are... whomever they are— lacking a modicum of self-awareness that they are lost without their self-serving crowd of like-minded Lost Girls and Boys of the Totemic Quorum, reminding us we are living in an Age of Irrationality.
