12. The Household Set

— A House made from many Houses —

Atom, cell, mind; a house in a house in a house

The Household Set works like the Mandelbrot Set except that the Household Set starts on ground level and the observer takes an elevator upward in stead of downward. This model is called the Household Set because the Household Mould is identical to the way a household is organized in the Bible: a large organization of sons and personnel acting on the government of a central abba or house-father.

The Household Mould is the most persistent 'shape' in nature, but it should be well understood that the Household Mould is not a mere shape but an abbreviated, stylized representation of a creature's behavioral faculties.

The Household Mould

The Household Mould is a basic shape from which other shapes are derived. All these shapes subsequently show the same, basic design:

Household Mould
The Household Mould
  • A static and central nucleus contains all the information to run the unit.
  • A dynamic body executes the commands of the nucleus and maintains an economy with the neighboring units.

The Household Mould constitutes the building block of every major realm, from matter (the atom), to life (the cell) to the mental sphere (the consciousness).

The first two levels are easily recognized but the third may need some explanation. And what about the fourth level? Is that the final one, the top floor? Perhaps, but perhaps not...

Mandelbrot Set

Based on the Mandelbrot Set, the Household Set displays four self-similar levels.

Click on any of the images below for an extensive treatment per level.

First level: atoms

The atom
  • Loosely connected smears; earth's atmosphere or clouds of interstellar dust.
  • Tightly knitted forms; stars, planets, double-deckers.
  • Living Cells.

Second level: living cells

The cell
  • Loosely connected smears;
    general ecosystems.
  • Tightly knitted forms; colonies, symbiotic partnerships.
  • Conscious Minds.

Third level: minds

The minds
  • Loosely connected smears;
    supermarket check-out lines.
  • Tightly knitted forms; Companies, schools of thought.
  • UPPE!

Fourth level: United Peoples of Planet Earth

UPPE
  • Loosely connected smears;
    Galactic Beach Party. Bring a date!
  • Tightly knitted forms; Galactic Senate...
  • ???

Go step by step through the levels of the Household Set, starting at:
The First Level: Atoms

But if you're brilliant and already see through the Set, skip ahead to chapter 13 for a look at the kinship of matter, life and mind.
For whom the bell-curve tolls

Summary 12: The Household Set.

  • The Household Mould is the most fundamental structure in the universe. It consists of a static nucleus governing a dynamic body, which maintains an economy with neighboring cells.
  • On earth there are three self-similar levels yet established: matter, life and mind.
  • Both Chaos Theory and the Bible predict a fourth level: minds will organize around Truth.
