Michael J. Shea. In a previous post we introduced the torus as one of the most fundamental shapes in nature. Now we will begin to explore variations on a meditation centered on the toroidal field of energy emanating from and pouring into the human heart, and the ever present stillness that underlies all movement.Why is the torus important?
The important thing to understand about the torus is that it represents a process, not just a particular form. A torus consists of a central axis with a vortex at both ends and a surrounding coherent field.Is the torus a flow process?
The torus as a flow process exhibits a set of characteristis that evolution biologist, Elisabet Sahtouris, has identified as features and principles of healthy living systems. Through her study of living systems (ecosystems, for example), she has observed that when these features are present, the system is balanced and whole.What is the singularity of the torus?
Continuing our exploration of the torus as a form and flow process, one of the key characteristics of it is that at its very center, the entire system comes to a point of ultimate balance and stillness — in other words, perfect centeredness. Like the center point of the vector equilibrium, this is the center point “singularity” of the torus.
