Binary System

A binary system is a system of two celestial objects, bound by gravitational attraction, orbiting around a mutual Barycenter.

Common examples of binary systems are binary stars, binary black holes, binary galaxies, binary planets and binary asteroids.

The first three binary systems are classified based on brightness, orbit and observation.

Classification based on brightness:
the two objects are classified as primary and secondary objects respectively. Here, the brighter object is the primary object and the other object is the secondary object.

Astrometric binaries, a fourth class of binaries, are formed when the secondary object is invisible. Only one object is visible because the secondary object is either hidden or not bright enough. The secondary object cannot be identified and the primary object seems to move around nothing.


Classification based on orbit:
the binary system is classified into close binaries and wide binaries. In close binaries, the two objects are close to each other, such that mass is transferred from one object to another. In wide binaries, although the two objects orbit the same centre of mass, they are separate and independent of each other.

Classification based on observation:
the binary system is classified into visual and eclipsing binaries. Visual binaries are made up of two stars that can be viewed separately through the aid of a telescope or binoculars. Eclipsing binaries, when viewed from the earth, the two objects are at an angle such that they form an eclipse when one passes in front of the other.

Four-dimensional Space

In harmony, 4-D space (four-dimensional space) is a tesseract comprised of an outer large cube representing 3-D space and a small invisible inner cube representing the fourth dimension.

The two cubes are space and time, such that the tesseract is spacetime.

Spacetime implies equilibrium between space and time.

A cube is made up of the following three equal sides:

1. Length (l)
2. Breadth (b)
3. Height (h)

The three sides are three dimensions of space such that the cube represents three-dimensional space.

Time (the fourth dimension) has the following three sides:

1. Hour
2. Minute
3. Second

Time is the reflection of space, which means that time is a cube in another dimension.

Since length is l, breadth is b and height is h, hour is l', minute is b' and second is h'. l', b' and h' are reflections of l, b and h respectively, such that time is the image of space.

There is a mirror between time and space. When a cube is placed in front of a mirror, the image in the…

Yinyang in the Holy Bible

Yinyang is the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire described in Exodus 13:21-22. The pillar of cloud is darkness (Yin), the pillar of fire is light (Yang), such that the two pillars are Yinyang.

"During the day the LORD went in front of them in a pillar of cloud to show them the way, and during the night he went in front of them in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel night and day. The pillar of cloud was always in front of the people during the day, and the pillar of fire at night." (Exodus 13:21-22)

Note that Yinyang is not 'Yin Yang'. Yinyang implies unity or reconciliation and 'Yin Yang' means division or conflict.

The Israelites left Egypt as a united people, which implies that their journey from Egypt to the Promised Land was governed by the force of Yinyang (not Yin Yang).

Yinyang is only one word. Yin Yang are two words.

Yinyang = 1 (unity or neutrality)

Yin Yang = 2 (division or polarity)

Circumscribed Circle

In geometry, a circumscribed circle (also circumcircle) of a polygon is a circle enclosing a cyclic polygon such that the circumference of the circle passes through all the vertices of the polygon.

All triangles and all regular simple polygons are cyclic polygons, which means that equilateral triangle, regular cyclic quadrilateral, regular pentagon, regular hexagon and regular octagon are cyclic polygons.

Recall that an octet is a regular octagon comprised of regular hexagons and equilateral triangles. Since these three geometric shapes are cyclic polygons, an octet is a circle comprised of circles.

In logical reasoning, the intersection between two equilateral triangles is a conjunction between two circles or two rings. Two circumscribed equilateral triangles are merged to form a circumscribed regular hexagon, and eight circumscribed regular hexagons are fused to form a circumscribed regular octagon.

Since the three geometric shapes are circumscribed polygons, each one can be substi…
