About 17 years ago, the University of Hawaii issued a public statement to the effect that the number one problem on the Manoa campus was the apparent fear, reluctance or inability on the part of incoming students to express themselves creatively. The University also announced that a special research, in depth, was going to be undertaken in order to find out what could be done about the situation.
Skeptical of a purely academic approach to the problem, I started a study of the Manoa campus on my own and began codifying hundreds of ideas into what I call a unified sense theory of relativity.
Out of it all has emerged a set of geometrical drawings that offer conclusive proof that there exists a logic more reasonable than the logic on which today’s education is based.
A case in point is the division of a circle into seven equal parts with straight edge and compass alone.
The problem is as old as time. Historically, it dates back to ancient Greece. Not even the remarkable Greeks, who started the academic game of words and numbers, were able to solve the problem.
Many of you may not have heard of the problem because the problem is already “solved” in so far as the so-called mathematicians are concerned. They have “solved” the problem by proving to their own satisfaction that there is no straight-edge and compass solution to the problem.
What kind of solution is that? The absurdity of it smacks of the kinds of solutions science is offering mankind — solutions that, in time, deteriorate into more complex problems in proportion to technological progress.
