I want to present some examples of mathematical patterns found in Nature by pointing out the following: 1.) fibonacci numbers that allow for an integer sequence where the two previous numbers are added together to form a new number, 2.) pi (3.1416) is a constant pattern in Nature, 3.) Newton’s foundational gravity equation can be found throughout the Universe (F = Gm1m2/r2), 4.) mathematical natural patterns are found in music scales, and 5.) there are patterns in the vis-viva equation models of the motion of orbiting bodies. Modern cosmological theories view our Universe as a mathematical object. Mathematical language involves computational techniques that help understand the fundamental regularity and order of Nature’s ways. I find it exceptionally interesting that Nature has given the human brain a primitive sense of mathematics that allows us to interact with the Universe and discern its numerical properties. This inherited mathematical sense has given us the ability to predict and to help discover the truths of Nature. It is mathematics and science that makes it possible to investigate the macro classical world and the micro quantum world. In the Theory of Balanceology, I indicate how I use mathematics in the measurement of human characteristics, features, behaviors, symptoms, impediments to growth, need satisfaction, treatment planning, and even if Balancetherapy is successful or not —-> by baseline differential. I include mathematics in constructing Balanceology’s Bell–Balance Curve and Bell-Health Curve.

## Mathematics and Nature

Mathematics was not my best subject in school, but I now understand it is the universal language to study Nature. Galileo said, “mathematics is the language in which God has written the universe.”(17th Cent) I amend his quote by saying mathematics is the language to investigate the truths in Nature. The preponderance of evidence indicates that we live in a mathematical Universe. Mathematics substantively gives us a path in studying and understanding the reality of our Universe. Mathematics provides a structural reality to study the natural courses that exist in the natural and human worlds. Physicist Eugene Wigner proposed, “the miracle of the appropriateness of the language of mathematics for the formulation of the laws of physics is a wonderful gift which we neither understand or deserve” (1960) I have come to appreciate the existence of mathematical numbers throughout the natural and human worlds. Since the Big Bang the Universe has had its indefeasible mathematical constants governing its laws in an orderly manner. In reality, there are just a handful of inviolable constants supporting Nature’s spatial and temporal properties. In the Theory of Balanceology, I indicate that there are consequences for humans when we contradict the laws of Nature. Our Universe is a vast interconnected web that mathematics helps decipher, decode, and bring order to. It is natural patterns having a mathematical basis that brings this order. Some natural patterns are concerned with the connectivity factors of unity, cyclicity, harmony, and balance. There are factors …

## Nature’s Connectivity

Astrophysics – Cosmology is the study of what exists in the Universe. Physics is primarily a study of energy and matter. Astrophysics combines the two and it becomes the study of the Cosmos and of physics. Astrophysicists attempt to understand the realities of the Cosmos –—> astro (celestial) + physics (terrestrial). It is Nature that binds Cosmology and Physics together and importantly that binding includes human nature, and each of us at an individual level. In my writing, I chronicle and detail how we are incorporated into the Cosmos, and that we will continue in the Cosmos after we die. Thus, significantly from the Big Bang onward everything in the natural world is connected. Connectivity plays a major role in the celestial realm, the terrestrial realm, and the interaction between the two. Connectivity is embedded within the laws of Physics and the Cosmos follows the laws of Physics. Baruch Spinoza said the laws of Nature will always remain the same (17th Cent). I have universology, consilience, and connectivity play a major role in the Theory of Balanceology.

## Boundless Universe

Several interesting questions for me are, “Is the Universe boundless?,” “Is the Universe endless?” and, “Are humans included in a never-ending Universe?” Right now we understand that the Universe extends out 13.7 billion years. I ask, “Is there something beyond those 13.7 billion years of energy-matter and time-space?” Is it a void <—> is it a vacuum? Some argue that the Universe is only in the infancy of its expansion. Some contend that there is an open Universe that will unceasingly expand forever. Others estimate that at the present time we only have the capability to observe 4% of our Universe. Thus, that would mean at the current time 96% of the Universe is beyond our ability to view. There are those who have estimated that the entire Universe (no one knows for sure) has an unobservable diameter of 100 septillion light years. It was Lucretius who proposed that the Universe must be boundless and edgeless (100 BC). However, for philosopher and scientist Archytas (400 BC) there must be a “cosmic edge” where the Universe ends. The Spear of Archytas refers to taking a spear and throwing it across the edge. Is there an edge that can be shattered (crossed)? If so, I ask, “What is on the other side of this Cosmic boundary?” The idea of a boundless and never-ending Cosmos is an emotional, intuitive, and cognitive mind-boggling and mind-blowing concept for me. I will again address the concept of a boundless and endless Universe as it applies to human …

## Planetai

It is by way of naturalistic patterns and order, I feel gifted to have a foundational footage to build my nature-based worldview. I find it interesting that the Greek root word for planet is planetai —> meaning “wandering.” I endorse the idea that us human earthlings we are indeed nature-created wanderers and Cosmic pilgrims as we individually make our meandering journey in search of discovering, “Who am I?,” “What am I?, and in finding our place in the Cosmos. The Aristotelian and Ptolemic geocentric model created a dualism between the celestial and the terrestrial. The Copernican heliocentric model proposed a union between the celestial and the terrestrial realms. The Copernican Model is the doctrine of universal sympathy proclaiming an order “as above, so below.” Importantly, there is now an understanding and appreciation that celestial (empyrean) events do influence terrestrial (earthly) events.

## Theory of Balanceology

I have been on a mission over the last many years to discover and build a worldview I can attest to and follow. The end result of my search is my book. Balanceology: The 4 M’s of motivation, meaning, measurement, mitigation. My autobiographical journey evolved into a theory and practice. The Theory of Balanceology is the study of what it takes to live a life in balance and health. The centric idea of the theory comes from the time honored nature based concept of balance. The Big Idea and backbone of my theory is “Balance Is Everything.” The model theorizes that humans are motivated to satisfy our inherent needs (M-1), and thus add meaning to our life (M-2). When a person is having personal and interpersonal problems an assessment and measurement (M-3) is made of the level of meeting needs and the current level of dysfunctional symptoms. Need satisfaction and current symptoms determine the degree a person is in-or-out of balance and health. Mitigation (M-4) involves building the personal and interpersonal skills it requires to better meet and satisfy our needs and thus lower unhealthy symptoms.

## Cosmic Models

In studying Nature, I felt the need to discover the best manner in which to view the Universe. The manner in which humans view the Universe will have a lot to say about the way we view ourselves, our values and beliefs, and our higher need for meaning. Geocentric Model – Egyptian astronomer Claudius Ptolemy (2nd Cent AD), in his great astronomical work the Great Treatise (Almaquest), proposed a model where the earth (geo) is the center of the Universe and everything else revolves around it. Ptolemy considered the Universe to be geocentric (Earth-centered). Humans, with our egocentric traits liked being the center of the Universe, and we carried this belief for a long time. Astonishingly —-> some still believe it! Heliocentric Model – German Renaissance mathematician and astronomer Nicholaus Copernicus just couldn’t accept the geocentric model. Copernicus theorized that the Sun (helios) is the center of our solar system and the planets revolve (wander) around it. The early Greeks felt the planets were like lights in the sky. Copernicus considered the Universe to be heliocentric (Sun-centered). Intellectually human understanding moves from geocentric to heliocentric. Deflating for some egos, but Planet Earth is not the center of the Universe. Actually, it is not even the center of the Milky Way Galaxy or even our own solar system. The Copernican Revolution has had a profound blow to the way we humans look at ourselves, and I suggest delivered a major blow to the proponents of a supernatural worldview of the Universe. …
