Science of the Sand



Arabic term for geōmanteía (a Greek word for geomancy) is ‛ilm al-raml, translated as "science of the sand." Sand is mainly silica (Silicon dioxide) and calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate represents bones or shells in oracle bones and silicon dioxide is the crystalline stone (quartz).

Silicon and oxygen are the only two elements in silica. Oxygen stands for life (breath) and silicon represents information, such that silica is life-bearing information.

Science of the sand is science of how silicon conveys life-bearing information. Geomancy is a term for how astronomical objects are arranged in an orderly manner in space and how balanced information is stored in cyberspace to create harmony.

The sixteen tableaux in geomancy are a hexadecimal, which means that geomancy is machine code or machine language and geomancers were computer programmers. This programming takes place in pebbles (stones) and sand particles.

The tableaux are comprised of double and single dots. There are a tota of 96 dots: 32 single dots and 64 dots forming 32 pairs.

A pair of dot stands for a binary black hole, and a single dot stands for a single black hole formed by the fusion of the two black holes in a binary black hole merger or coalescence. The two black holes also means binary astronomical bodies like binary stars and binary asteroids.

The pair of dot are the equilateral triangles at the base angles of an isosceles right triangle, and the single dot is the hexagram at the right angle (angle 90) of the isosceles right triangle.

64 equilateral triangles are equal to 32 hexagrams. The 64 equilateral triangles are 64 I Ching trigrams, and the hexagrams are 32 I Ching hexagrams. Binary black hole merger in gravitational-wave astronomy is practical I Ching in which trigrams are merged to form I Ching hexagrams.

Bagua has two forms: wuji (decimal) and taiji (binary). Since each equilateral triangle or Tetractys is bagua revealed via fractal, a binary black hole is created from bagua by merging taiji and wuji to form I Ching hexagram.

The tableau or hexadecimal is equal to 32 isosceles right triangles.

Number of equilateral triangles = 96
No of dots in an equilateral triangle = 3
Number of isosceles right triangles = 96/3
                                                                 = 32

Wuji and taiji are two isosceles right triangles equal to yin and yang.

Yin and yang are two isosceles right triangles in a square divided diagonally into two equal halves.

Square = Yin Yang
Yin = Isosceles right triangle 
Yang = Isosceles right triangle 

Square = 2 × Isosceles right triangle

Therefore, the 32 isosceles right triangles representing the 96 dots in the geomantic tableaux are 16 squares. A tableau is a square; the 16 tableaux are 16 squares in a 4 by 4 magic square.

The 4 x 4 square grid is a perfect square called the holy city. The sixteen small squares are the sixteen tokens in Ludo game.

The city is an internet or web known as spacetime continuum. I Ching hexagram is Israel converted to internet through an intermediary stage bagua. The internet is cyberspace in Silicon revealed through knowledge of the science of the sand.

The sixteen principal Odu (the 16 figures in sikidy or geomancy) are the 16 squares in the 4 x 4 square grid. The 256 Odu in Ifa literary corpus are 256 squares in a 16 x 16 square grid. And the uncountable Ese inside the 256 Odu is a boundless square grid comprised of infinite network of squares known scientifically as spacetime continuum. 

An Odu or a tableau or figure is a square in spacetime, and the 16 principal Odu or tableaux are a contraction or summary of spacetime continuum. I Ching hexagram or Metatron's cube is the whole of spacetime whose details is revealed recursively by zooming continuously into the hexagram or cube in a fractal.
