The vortex and cube redux

Observing the shutter on a camera recently, we noticed similarities to the vortex inside a cube theme discussed previously. Only this time the principle was inverted.

It’s as though the negative space of the spiral motion of the shutter creates the cube-hexagon from the edge of infinity, what the Japanese call ‘ma’. Considering that many of the consumer electronics products we’ve been discussing have followed this black cube principle then Japan may hold the key to understanding this mystery or at least help explain what is a global archetype.

The happening on Saturn and the trend in hi-tech branding for the spiral-within-a-black-cube motif is an inverse of the camera shutter which forms the hexagon within the spiral rather than the other way round. Does this go some way to explaining the mysterious relationship between the vortex and the cube? That they are dependent on each other in a dualist universe inseparable by sacred geometry?

The SLR camera is essentially a black box with a circle on it. Within the lens the shutter inverts the principle.

When the shutter is fully open the hexagon disappears.

As with all black box or kaaba objects, the camera is able to take a copy of reality and store it within itself. The monolith in Space Odyssey is ‘full of stars’. The XBox 360, Nintendo GameCube, Playstation and Sega Saturn all contain a seemingly endless labyrinth of virtual realms. The Titan Supercomputer boasts 710 TB of memory.

The black box flight recorder on airplanes contains all the data of the flight (even though it is housed within an orange box the actual unit is black). Super-computers such as Titan are black boxes composed of black boxes within black boxes.
