The function of the arrangement of leaves (phyllotaxy) is to increase a plant’s ability to carry on photosynthesis by positioning the leaves in such away as tomaximize the surface area available to intercept sunlight.

I have a google-plus page, but never use it...John Lamb on the mound for Angels...top of 1st...and thought to see just what google-plus is, and was browsing its 'feed', and sighted a bit on plants...and found that word 'phyllotaxy'...and looking at the graphic, the plant leaves, thought, 'oh, they're ambigrams!'...Nature has patterns too, and must have a been a source for Mesoamerican art, along with those patterns seen in hallucinations which I went on about!...cave art has a lot of geometric shapes, and animals, and people, and hand prints...Jays made out...the hand prints are a curio...as they are 'prints'...some of them stencils...the folk back then could spray paint...blowing pigment through a rolled up leaf, a hollow bone, and such...I'm wrong in saying the Mesoamericans never made things exactly the same...Angels up...one out...Trout up...they made figurines from molds, and printed textiles...there's an island off Yucatan full of molded figurines...offerings...Jainen something....for sometime!...the Middle Eastern cultures had cylinder seals, which are a printing tool...and they molded figurines too...Trout walks?...Upton doubles...runners second and third...passed ball...Trout scores...Angels 1-0...Upton on third...there's an odd disconnect in this!...the ancients on one hand knew how to print, and manufacture from molds, but on the other hand, did everything, they're writing and book making and such, by hand...we knew the essence of printing manufacturing from the very start!...a curio is why we didn't extrapolate and use the knowledge fully...diverted...Pujols rbi hit...Simmons up...phyllotaxy!...looking up wiki's take, I find another word...

Decussation is used in biological contexts to describe a crossing (Latin: the roman numeral for ten, deca, is an uppercase 'X'). (In Latin anatomical terms the form decussatio is used, e.g. decussatio pyramidum.) Similarly, the anatomical term chiasma is named after the Greek uppercase 'Χ', chi).

Angels made out...Angels 2-0...to top of 2nd...hmmph...I went on about chiasma in literature...hadn't thought of it as an ambigram!...

"Chiasmus is a rhetorical device in which two or more clauses are balanced against each other by the reversal of their structures in order to produce an artistic effect."

quote

While observers tend to agree that there’s a stage at which most children strive for realistic depiction in their drawing, many psychologists argue that at their earlier stages of drawing, children aren’t thinking about realism. Take, for example, the way kids tend to scatter objects in awkward places in their drawings; they might draw a house on the left corner of the page and then a road that somehow stands above it. But that doesn’t mean they don’t understand how these scenes look in the real world, some experts say; instead, the child is more concerned about achieving a kind of visual balance between the objects. Their goal, ultimately, is to create something that’ll make sense to the person they show it to.
... ... ...
In fact, adult abstract artists such as Robert Motherwell and Paul Klee were inspired by children’s drawing. Observers have found similar patterns in modern abstract art and kids’ drawing; one example is the “X-ray” drawing, or a drawing in which the “inside” of a person is made visible (like a baby shown inside a woman’s stomach).

 Early surviving artworks of the Aborigines are mostly rock paintings. Many are called X-ray paintings because they show the bones and organs of the animals they depict.

  • Jay's rbi double on a Hermisillio bobble...hmmph...Angels 2-2...xray-drawings...

The style is also sometimes used to render delicate polychromed images of the interior cavity of the animal. Images are known in which only the outline and the skeleton of the bird, fish, or mammal are indicated, and the entire internal system of organs is expressed by a “life line,” a single horizontal line that runs from the animal’s mouth to a dot representing the heart or stomach. Whether the depiction of an animal in the X-ray style had particular religious symbolism is not known.

two out walk...runners first and second...we hardly have any oral traditions anymore...everything is being passed from one generation to the next in school by text books, videos, and such...when I was in grade school the rules for the games we played on the playground were taught by the older kids to younger kids...I don't think I've ever read a book on how to play baseball...was taken aback when my nephew asked me what was happening on a pop fly with runners on first and second...why the automatic out!?...realized he never played baseball on a sandlot...not to say oral traditions aren't present today...but we're all spread apart, so no telling what is being remembered, what is being forgotten...A's made out...to bottom of 3rd...one out...Pujols up...a thought is that the primitive looking cave art was made by primitive, child like, artists...not so!...more I look at them, more I realize how accomplished they are...and this going back tens of thousands of years...the hands of the artists are steady...symmetry is present...they knew what they were about...

Rock art is a rather vague term which denotes prehistoric man-made markings on natural stone. Similar terms include: "rock carvings", "rock engravings", "rock inscriptions", "rock drawings" and "rock paintings".

http://www.visual-arts-cork.com/prehistoric/rock-art.htm#types
... ... ...

The actual term "cupule" was invented recently by the world-famous archeologist Robert G. Bednarik, in an attempt to provide a consistent name for a phenomenom which hitherto had been called "pits", "hollows", "cups", "cupels", "cup stones", "pitmarks", "cup marks" - even "pot-holes".

quote

The ceiba was the most sacred tree for the ancient Maya, and according to Maya mythology, it was the symbol of the universe. The tree signified a route of communication between the three levels of earth. Its roots were said to reach down into the underworld, its trunk represented the middle world where the humans live, and its canopy of branches arched high in the sky symbolized the upper world and the thirteen levels in which the Maya heaven was divided.

According to the Maya, the world is a quincunx, consisting of four directional quadrants and a central space corresponding to the fifth direction. Colors associated with the quincunx are red in the east, white in the north, black in the west, yellow in the south, and green in the center.

K...Pena on the mound...has three strike outs already...well, seeing again the four colors, after going on about them yesterday in Michael Van Stone's youtube clip about bearded white men and the Mayans and the colors of the four directions, one god being white, one red, one black, one yellow, the colors of Indian corn, I got to thinking, are the four directions in Masonic lodges indicated by colors!?...what can I say, I was roped into DeMolay as a teenager...had no idea really who DeMolay was until I looked up the history much later...DeMolay is a bit like boyscouts without the camping...instead of camping, it was conventions...the rowdiness the same...anyway, I made a quick looksee at the layout of masonic lodges...Calhoun up...fly out...had two hits last night...and dogged a hit that got past him...and noted the altar in the middle...which I don't remember...and around the altar three 'lights'...hmmph...I thought: 'here I am with the Inca creation three stones, the Mayan three ancestor stones, omphalos stones...now three lights...a looksee'...Angels made out...

the hearth stones of the Mayans are shown arranged in a triangle holding a platter like grill for cooking, and it was explained that this arrangement may represent stability, like a three legged stool...that's probably a reach, but true enough three stones is the first number of stones, the minimum number, one would need to hold a round grill/platter to cook on...and it is a triangle...about here, I left off looking for the four direction colors of lodges...Pujols a throw'm out at the plate (home plate has a triangular point...a square with a triangle!)...and I thought I'll go look up the designs on Easter Eggs...as likely those were taken seriously at some time and have import!...then thought, eggs are like stones...my easter eggs moving along!...D'Backs make out...to top of 3rd...and said to myself..."DavidDavid, this is all becoming to much like movieTheDivinciCode"...two of the books in that series I read, movies too...familiar with mythology and poetry, it was kind of ho hum...but I had some time before the game tonight, and on a whim thought to watch one of the movies...see how another Easter egg hunter goes about things!...from amazon prime rented movieAngelsAndDemons...and right off it begins with the destruction of the dead Pope's ring...every Pope's seal ring is destroyed when he dies...and I thought, 'how like what I read about the Sapa-Incas tocapu tunic!'...those were burned when the Sapa died...the reason the famous one survived is because of the chaos in succession the Spanish caused...then the movie jumps from that to, what's it called...brb...

Langdon listens to the Illuminati's message and deduces the four cardinals will die at the four altars of the "Path of Illumination", marked by statues of angels in locations relevant to the four classical elements. Over the objections of Commander Maximilian Richter, head of the Swiss Guard, but with McKenna's consent, Langdon is granted access to the Vatican Secret Archives. He examines Galileo Galilei's banned book with Vetra. Following the clues and accompanied by Inspector General Ernesto Olivetti and Claudio Vincenzi of the Vatican Gendarmerie Corps, they arrive at the Chigi Chapel in the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo. There they find Cardinal Ebner dead, suffocated with soil and branded with an ambigrammatic word "Earth".

It is, albeit 'Romanized'. We agree on the similarities. To add on, the similarity also extends to arts of the old Americas, example: Incan arts, and the those found in Australia, where swirls of finely-striped positive-negative spaces form crocodilian gods.

In April 2006 Brown's publisher, Random House, won a copyright infringement case brought by authors Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, who claimed that Brown stole ideas from their 1982 book Holy Blood Holy Grail for his 2003 novel The Da Vinci Code.

This is commonly described as the checkered carpet which covers the floor of the lodge. The lecture says that the mosaic pavement “is a representation of the ground floor of King Solomon’s Temple” and is “emblematic of human life, checkered with good and evil.”

oh, a curio...I just watched late last night youtube about that the Jerusalem Temples were located lower down from where they are now thought to be, Islam's Dome of the Rock, and the Wailing Wall...thought is that that is all ruins of Roman fort, and the real location was lower where there is a spring, which provided water for the rituals...makes good sense...and the youtube notes that the ancient Israelis purchased a 'threshing floor' area for their temple...the checkerboard, I find, shows up in Dogon lore...Graves was absolutely bananas over the Dogon...he had an African one eyed figurine gold measuring weight beside him when he wrote out bookWhiteGoddess...and alludes to its influence!...

quote

The Dogon checkerboard can be a kinetic symbol as well, for it can be danced or otherwise acted out to bring a sense of divine order to both ritual and everyday affairs. Here young people are tilling the sandy soil just adjacent to Sanga village in Mali on the day after the first rains of 1986.
... ... ...
The young people are following a choreography called by the woman second from the right.  Following her cadence, they strike the ground to dig in the carefully collected fertilizer seen piled in the foreground, and to prepare for planting millet; but they do so in a manner that Dogon say produces the desired sacred checkerboard pattern (Griaule 1970).

quote

For example, we find a certain type of designs for cane baskets in Louisiana, and passing over to northern South America,[3] we find baskets of similar materials with designs almost identical. In this case we have other facts that suggest this similarity to be but another example of culture diffusion. Yet, we can find baskets in some of the Pacific Islands which can scarcely be distinguished from cane baskets of the New World, if we consider the designs only, and in this case there is no good reason for expecting diffusion.
The limitations set by weaving are more clearly shown when realistic figures are attempted (Fig. 35). Painted pottery, on the other hand, imposes no such restrictions in the matter of design, but leaves the hand free to make curves of any form. Accordingly, when we find the aboriginal potters of Arizona and New Mexico using a great array of checked and angular patterns, with stepped lines, we must necessarily refer them to textiles.
... ... ...
Like many other culture traits, designs tend to fall into geographical groups. While the boundaries to such areas cannot always be drawn with great precision, their centers can be located without much difficulty. We have noted that California seemed to be the center of the highest attainments in basket-making, and it so happens that this is also the great center for basketry designs.

Ancient Rome reconstructed
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfwoX3vYJUA

It has scenes of Rome's ancient buildings superimposed over the modern ruins in the city today...there will be a city scene, with the ruins, and then the ruins are restored in a graphic, but the modern city, with people and tourists, are still partially seen...it gives a sense of scale in two ways--one, the huge scale of the buildings...I never knew that ancient Rome was such a big city full of public tall buildings!... and two, the ancient side by side with modern gives a sense of scale in time...it's a long clip, and one comes away with a real sense of ancient Rome and its populace...anyway, it reminds me a bit of my 'frame'...including the play by play of the Angels/Dodgers baseball games on the radio...I hadn't thought this would give the notes a sense of 'scale', but, in a way it does...I'm thinking!...hmmph...I dunno...anyway, to continue from yesterday!...three stones...see previous posts...this thirty eighth in a series...I thought it would be difficult to re-find what I read about Mesoamerican three stones...thought to compare them to the Inca three stone story I found...but, but, I found the Mesoamericans' right away!...

Maya Creation-Anticipating 2012-The Planting of the Three Stones

neat clip...clips!...Stone has a group of Mayan clips...all six years ago during the interest in the Mayan calendar...that doomsday in 2012...the Mayan stones are thought to be stylized hearth stones...the Mayan would make a fire hearth in their homes with three stones, and set a large plate on top of them, on top of the flames...'the first thing to do when you build a house is make a hearth...the placing of the three stones'...while he is saying this he is pointing to a large tall stela with Mayan hieroglyphs...it's at the Museum of Man in San Diego Balboa Park...Stone is like a curator there...then...maybe now too...I have to make a trip down there to see the Mayan exhibit...remember once seeing the Museum of Man, and really didn't like it!...someones must have made the comparison of the Inca three stones with the Mesoamericans...brb...oh...here's a take on Stone's take...

A diadem is a type of crown, specifically an ornamental headband worn by monarchs and others as a badge of royalty. The word derives from the Greek διάδημα diádēma, "band" or "fillet",[1] from διαδέω diadéō, "I bind round", or "I fasten".[2]
The term originally referred to the embroidered white silk ribbon, ending in a knot and two fringed strips often draped over the shoulders, that surrounded the head of the king to denote his authority.

The Mascapaicha was the imperial symbol, worn only by the Sapa Inca as King of Cusco and Emperor of the Tawantinsuyu. It was a chaplet made of layers of many-coloured braid, from which hung the latu, a fringe of the finest red wool, with red tassels fixed to gold tubes. It was decorated with gold threads and a tuft bearing two or three upright feathers from the mountain caracara, a sacred bird called Corequenque in Spanish, it was the physical expression of ultimate political power in the Inca Empire.

In 1944, a historical reconstruction of the Inti Raymi was directed by Faustino Espinoza Navarro and indigenous actors. The first reconstruction was largely based on the chronicles of Garcilaso de la Vega and only referred to the religious ceremony. Since 1944, a theatrical representation of the Inti Raymi has been taking place at Saksaywaman, two kilometers from its original celebration in central Cusco on June 24 of each year, attracting thousands of tourists and local visitors.

A British team of archaeologists on expedition in the Peruvian Andes has hailed as “sensational” the discovery of some of the most sacred objects in the Inca civilisation – three “ancestor stones”, which were once believed to form a precious link between the heavens and the underworld.

The sites for ceremonial platforms were chosen for their vistas of the snow-capped peaks, which were worshipped as mountain deities. It was at such sites that the Incas sacrificed children – the ceremony of capacocha – at moments of potential instability.
These structures also had sacred central spaces known as the ushnu, with a vertical opening into “the body of the earth” into which libations such as maize beer were poured. The ushnu platforms served as a stage from which the Inca king and his lords could preside over seasonal festivals and ceremonies.

Ancestor stones represented deities, ancestors and the sun, and were imbued with supreme symbolic significance. They were greeted with incomprehension by Spanish chroniclers of the early 16th century, who sacrilegiously likened their shape to sugar loaves, pineapples and bowling pins. The insult, however, was returned: when the 16th-century Inca ruler Atahualpa was shown a copy of the Bible by the Conquistadors, he reacted with similar contempt.

These scholars — mainstream historians and archaeologists — are fundamentally honest and hard-working people who perform the extraordinarily laborious task of unearthing artifacts from our ancient past.

The problem is that they are locked into a particular paradigm that sees our society as the apex and pinnacle of the human story. They view history as a straightforward evolutionary process, from caveman to today’s highly technological civilization, which in their minds is the “supreme” one.

They are 100% locked into this “evolutionary” idea of how history works, and so it’s very difficult for them to accept that deep in the remote past there existed a civilization or Golden Age that was far more advanced than we are ― spiritually, psychologically, technologically ― and that was able to do things that we cannot.

The checkerboard pattern is known in Quechua as qolqanpata, "hill of terraces with storehouses."[1] The word qolqa refers to the individual one-room stone structures that were built in rows on hillsides. Bernabé Cobo, a 17th-century historian of the Inca empire and culture, described small square buildings "set in a line like little towers, very neatly and symmetrically and spaced two or three yards apart from one another."
... ... ...
 Francisco de Xerez, writing in 1534 of the arrival of Atahualpa, the last Inca ruler, into the Spanish presence in Cajamarca, provided another military association for the type: "The men [of Atahualpa's army] began to enter the plaza; first came a squadron of Indians dressed in livery of colors in the manner of chessboards; they came removing straws from the ground and sweeping the road."[

Afterwards they took their leave, expecting Atabaliba to come and see the Governor on the following morning. His camp was formed on the skirts of a small hill, the tents, which were of cotton, extending for a league, with that of Atabaliba in the centre. All the men were on foot outside the tents, with their arms, consisting of long lances like pikes, stuck into the ground. There seemed to be upwards of thirty thousand men in the camp.
... ... ...
Presently he and his troops began to move, and the Spaniard returned and reported that they were coming, and that the men in front carried arms concealed under their clothes which were strong tunics of cotton, beneath which were stones and bags and slings; all which made it appear that they had a treacherous design. Soon the van of the enemy began to enter the open space. First came a squadron of Indians dressed in a livery of different colours, like a chessboard. They advanced, removing the straws from the ground, and sweeping the road. Next came three squadrons in different dresses, dancing and singing. Then came a number of men with armour, large metal plates, and crowns of gold and silver. Among them was Atabaliba in a litter13 lined with plumes of macaws' feathers, of many colours, and adorned with plates of gold and silver. Many Indians carried it on their shoulders on high. Next came two other
litters and two hammocks, in which were some principal chiefs; and lastly, several squadrons of Indians with crowns of gold and silver.

Central to my exploration are Inka textiles that apparently

were specifically made for or used by males or females

in pre-Columbian times. In particular, I address relationships
 
among tapestry-woven objects (especially those featuring

toqapus, rectangular design blocks) and those created



using warp-patterned structures.

... ... ...
A combination of repetition and symmetry with alternation

characterizes another typical Inka tunic design, which

consists of diagonals with blunted points and dots or rectangles,

often nearly square (for an example in the Textile
 
Museum, see https://www2.gwu.edu/~textile/AheadofHisTime/

timeline3.html). This design has been widely



referred to as the “Inka key” since J.H. Rowe (1979: 245) so
 
christened it.

Gate of the Gods – Hayu Marca, Peru


Back in 1996, local tour guide Jose Luis Delgado Mamani accidentally rediscovered an ancient site situated in the vicinity of Lake Titicaca and near the mountain-filled region of Hayu Brand in Peru while he was exploring the area for his job. The region itself is venerated by the local natives as the “city of the gods” and researchers are of the opinion that several monuments could be uncovered beneath its surface.

Madain Saleh


quote

Mada'in Saleh (Arabic: مدائن صالح‎, madāʼin Ṣāliḥ, "Cities of Saleh"), also called "Al-Hijr" or "Hegra", is an archaeological site located in the Sector of Al-`Ula within Al Madinah Region, the Hejaz, Saudi Arabia.

thought is the Nabotaens that built Petra made these...and they are tombs...not false doors...'false door' portals are one of the Mysterions' favorite topics!...

quote

Al-Aboudi added, the site of Mada'in Saleh is the largest archaeological site in the world, where sites and inscriptions were not consolidated yet, due to its huge number.
There is still a lot more that was not discovered so far, pointing out that there is no location in the world with such number of inscriptions, rock writings and sculpture on the mountains, as well as undiscovered towns buried underground and waiting to be unearthed.

A's get another run...two out...runner at third...Angels not to have a tidy win...0-2...Umpire is helping...A's made out...to top of 9th...our everyday is full of 'tocapus'...emblems...thinking of advertisement logos as one...they're little gateways...portals...metaphorically speaking...others are for directions...and awhile back I drew one, thinking on this, this before this series, maybe part of its beginning!...I dunno...thought was....Angels make out...to bottom of 9th...Anderson on mound...thought was that traffic lights make a kind of face, the face of this creature that talks to us, and orders our travels!...drawings not very good...it was a 'jot'...something just to note the idea for later on!...

2/22/18...so, awhile back...when I saved the file I labeled it 'stoplight'...hmmph...before the game, I went over to the Mall to maybe watch moveDeadpool2...wanted to hear Aha's Take on Me loud in a big theater!...too late, and walking back to Silver, my jeep, a girl caught up with me and showed me a pic on her cell phone...a store, with it's name...she couldn't speak English...but looking at the photo, I noticed the tall glass building in the background, and pointed her that away...how's it go...pic is worth a thousand words...there's another thing, akin to the Incas emblems...their sense of dualism, light and dark...that too is everywhere in our modern time too, if one attunes, and notices it...the music video of Take on Me is famous...one out...runners at first and second...

His pencil-drawn hand reaches out of the comic book, inviting the woman into it. Once inside, she too appears in the pencil-drawn form, as he sings to her and introduces her to his black-and-white world which features a sort of looking-glass portal where people and objects look real on one side and pencil-drawn on the other.

look the video up...it's two worlds...one violent...one peaceful...and then there's Katy Perry's Hot and Cold...

quote

'Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up
(You) You don't really want to stay, no
(You) But you don't really want to go-o
You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down
