Magnetic Sculpture – Vector Equilibrium – Oddly Satisfying Giant Steel Spheres | Magnet Tricks


a cuboctahedron is a polyhedron with
eight triangular faces and six square faces the vector equilibrium henceforth
VE for short is the only geometric form wherein all of the vectors are of
equal lengths. This includes both, from its center point out to its
circumferential vertices and the edges connecting all of those vertices. Another
way of deriving the geometry of the VE is by using thirteen spheres of the same
diameter, one sphere magnets as the center point and twelve steel spheres
around the nucleus. The centers of each sphere will be equidistant from all of
their adjacent neighbors. The VE has also the attribute of consisting of four
hexagons symmetrically arrayed in four planes. Fascinated by this form I decided
to explore its unique geometry on a bigger scale. I glued magnets to the
hollow stainless steel spheres hence allowing them to be attached to the
solid metal center sphere The metal rod was welded to the central
sphere the smaller metal ball welded to the other end of the rod, acts as
magnetically suspended bearing. More magnets and metal parts were added to
compensate the smaller diameter of the middle sphere. The lines connecting at
the centers of the spheres are the vectors. Because it’s an array of twelve
spheres and one central sphere, we can refer to this as a twelve around one
system. We can then consider this system when we examine the cosmometric
relationship of twelve based system such as a twelve-tone music scale or
astrological zodiac. With all vectors being exactly of the same length and
angular relationship, from an energetic perspective the VE represents the
ultimate and perfect condition wherein the movement of energy comes to a state
of absolute equilibrium and therefore absolute stillness and nothingness. It’s
a primary pattern, fundamental to the creation of universe at all scales.
Because the VE has four hexagonal planes defining its spatial coordinates one of
the greatest minds of our times Buckminster Fuller says that the
foundation of the cosmic geometry is actually four-dimensional as opposed to
the conventional three dimensional 90 degrees XYZ
system, historically assumed to be fundamental. The VE is the true zero
reference of the energetic and mathematics serial position in the VE is
the nearest approach we will ever know to Eternity and if it’s your cup of tea
to God. The zero phase of conceptual integrity inherent in the positive and
negative symmetries that propagate the differentials of consciousness.
