Phi Double Spiral Field Patterning
In our exploration of the unified model of cosmometry, we’ve explored two primary components: Structural Tensegrity and the Torus Flow Process. The third component, Field Patterning, ties these two together as a means of seeing how the vector/structure and vortex/flow aspects integrate.
We use the word “patterning” to describe this component because of the very simple and basic way the Field component can be described: as a pattern (actually as a variety of patterns that can interact, transform and evolve — hence pattern-ing). A pattern, in the context of cosmometry, is a 2-dimensional representation of a 3-dimensional (and 4-dimensional) form. Here are a few examples showing radials, rings/waves, and spirals:
As shown in the Cosmometry 101 > Energetic Articulation article, there are three primary components to the field patterning: Vectors/Radials, Rings/Waves, Spirals/Vortices. These depict the Structural, Toroidal and Double-Spiral Field in the simplest 2-dimensional patterns. As can be seen in this illustration showing the integration of all three components, these combine into a coherent coordinate system of vectors, rings and spirals.
Phi and Octave Scaling of the Field
Two primary ways in which the field scales are in the ratios of 1.618… (the Phi ratio) and 2 (doubling, or octaves). It appears these two scaling ratios are the most basic to the field structure of spacetime.
Binary and Octave Scaling
In the Vector Equilibrium/IVM article we looked at how the jitterbug motion of the VE moves through a seamless scaling of energy flow within the Isotropic Vector Matrix. The ratio of this scaling is 2:1, a doubling of size at each iteration. This doubling is characteristic, for example, of the doubling of frequencies in the musical scale that creates a new octave with each progression. Being a 12-tone system, music is innately resonant with the 12-around-1 cosmometry of the VE and IVM (and can be mapped within this system as described in the Cosmometry of Music section).
The doubling of scale is also found within the binary numeric system that leads to the most basic polar-balanced fractal structure within the IVM — the 64 tetrahedron grid. Starting from 1 and doubling each step we get 1 2 4 8 16 32 64. As basic a math equation as it gets, and yet this appears to be precisely the formula of scaling within the IVM itself.
As mentioned throughout this site (and many other places in the noosphere), the phi ratio of 1.618… is common throughout the cosmic blueprint, including within the structural geometries, vortex flow forms, angular relationships, and quantitative arrangements of physical phenomena (see the Cosmometry of Phi section for a comprehensive exploration of phi). Given how common it is, it seems evident to be perhaps the most fundamental scaling ratio in the manifest universe. It appears that nature has an innate tendency to scale biological growth, spiral arcs, atomic and galactic structures, and all manner of structural and flow forms upon the phi ratio due to its optimal efficiency for exactly this need: scaling from micro to macro as harmoniously and seamlessly as possible.
This indicates that the cosmic spacetime field itself is inherently based upon this ratio as pertains to the manifest universe. Whether expressed as a spiral, structural proportion, angle or quantity, the same ratio is at play throughout.
Phi Double Spiral as Dynamic Equilibrium
From observations of nature we can see that one of the most common expressions of the phi ratio is in the pattern of a either a single or double spiral (or vortex, to be more accurate). Plant growth, water and air flows, electromagnetic and gravitational dynamics (e.g. spiral galaxies), all exhibit this pattern. Even the skeletal structure of the human hand and body are proportioned in this ratio to allow for the most efficient movements that themselves are ultimately spiral in nature (such as curling fingers into a fist).

Given this, we can postulate that whereas the VE is the primary cosmometry of equilibrium in the non-manifest zero-phase energetics, the phi double spiral is the primary cosmometry of dynamic equilibrium in manifest energetics. And the fact that the two are able to perfectly align to the same 4-dimensional cosmometry of the IVM, creating both the regular and spherical versions of the VE (with the phi boundary defining the spherical VE), indicates that this is indeed a dual expression of one phenomenon — equilibrium.
These two animations show what this looks like:

Cross-section of a Torus
When viewing a double spiral, what we’re looking at is actually the 2-dimensional pattern of the 3-dimensional (and 4D with time as flow process) field of a torus. It is the cross-section of the whole field which itself is double-spiraling around and throughout the torus, as well as along its central axis. It is easy to see this when looking at a pinecone, for example.
Considering the torus as the fundamental form of dynamic energy flow throughout all scales in the cosmos, we can then extend this to say that the phi double spiral is the fundamental field patterning of this flow of energy throughout the cosmos. And given the variety of ways in which we can see this fundamental pattern in nature (as explored in the Cosmometry of Phi section), it is apparent that this includes not just when energy is in a coherent toroidal flow state, but as well when it is in both vector and current flow states.

Radials and Rings
Complementary to the double spiral patterning of the field are the radial and ring patterns also found in nature. Radials can be seen as straight vector lines, for example, in the pattern of certain kinds of sea shells and flowers such as the dandelion. Rings can most readily be seen as the wave motion that expands outward when a pebble is thrown into a calm lake, and in the cross section of a tree.
Again, these two fundamental patterns seamlessly integrate with the double spiral pattern to create a unified pattern that is the 2D version of the 3D unified model of cosmometry.
Integrated patterning of phi double spiral, radials and rings with vector equilibrium at the center
Interestingly, we may postulate from the observed dual nature of quantum events manifesting as both “particles” and “waves” that these characteristics are simply different ways of looking at the same phenomenon — the fundamental patterning underlying all manifesting energy events. The particle being a radial/vector (and even a spiral) energetic expression, and the wave being a ring/wave energetic expression. From a fractal holographic perspective, these three fundamental patterns — radials, rings and spirals — are always present, though not always visible, and at the quantum level they are co-existing so seamlessly that it appears that one quantum event can exhibit all patterns simultaneously. Remember, at the pre-quantum Unified Field level, these all merge into a unified coherence of perfect equilibrium and the distinction between them completely disappears. At the first level of manifestation — the quantum level — we begin to observe these distinctions, and from there as the complexity of atomic and material manifestation increases, the distinctions become more apparent (i.e. form tends towards one or another of the radial, ring or spiral patternings).
