Nature's Information and Harmonic Proportion

Michael A. Sherbon


February 14, 2011

This includes the complementarity of continuous and discrete, one and the many, waves and particles, and analog or digital views of reality. The three-fold method of the Pythagorean paradigm of unity, duality, and harmony enables the calculation of fundamental physical constants required by the forces of nature in the formation of matter; thereby demonstrating Plato's archetypal viewpoint.
