Dear Dewey:

Enclosed are two designs for new periodic tables of the elements and subatomic particles; both are based on information provided in Nothing But Motion. The first one, which emerged as the outcome of a collaboration with Eden Muir, has the following features:

  1. A continuous spiral progression of the elements from 1 to 117;
  2. A special central position for the noble gases;
  3. Easy divisibility into four quadrants, representing the four Divisions;
  4. Symmetrical structure with respect to electronegative and electropositive elements.

The second drawing represents the relationship of the subatomic particles to the elements. It is a truncated cross-section through a portion of the first drawing. If the elements are represented as three-dimensional blocks (i.e., having effective rotations in all three dimensions), then the subatomic particles can be depicted as two-dimensional flat surfaces. I supplied the names of the two unobserved particles, M 1-1-1 and M 1-1-0 as “sub-Lithium” and “sub-Helium” respectively. On this basis, the proton could be termed “sub-Hydrogen.” The photon is represented as a one-dimensional. entity, i.e., a line. Beyond that, the cosmic subatomic particles begin, with the cosmic electron, the cosmic rotational base, and the cosmic positron in the first row, followed by the cosmic neutrino and cosmic massless neutron in the second row, and the cosmic proton in the third.

I found the exercise of preparing these drawings helpful in organizing my understanding of the relationships among the elements and the subatomic particles. Please let me know what you think about these representations and if you have any suggestions as to how they might be refined further.

Happy birthday!
