Nature is filled with threes. Land, sea, and air. People propagate many plants by three chief methods. These methods are: (1) cuttage, (2) grafting, and (3) layering. Forests a catagirized into three major groups: (1) coniferous forests, (2) temperate deciduous forests, and (3) tropical rain forests.

Tetrahedron

Tetrahedron

Four triangular faces along with six edges meeting at four vertices together describe the regular tetrahedron. The tetrahedron is the root of all entanglements that shape the perceivable bonds that hold life together in this dimension. The regular tetrahedron can be found at the source of all three-dimensional forms and is fundamental in the creation of all patterns and holographic configurations.

“All of the definable structuring of Universe is tetrahedrally coordinate in rational number increments of the tetrahedron. By tetrahedron, we mean the minimum thinkable set that would subdivide the Universe and have the interconnectedness where it comes back upon itself. The basic structural unit of physical Universe quantation, tetrahedron has the fundamental prime number oneness.”

Buckminster Fuller

“Within it (tetrahedron) lies the energy that holds all life together. The bonds that hold atoms, particles and molecules together, all the way down to nanoparticles and all the way up to macroparticles, are tetrahedral. Everything that exists as you conceive of it in a 3-dimensional world, is held together by these tetrahedral bonds.”

Buckminster Fuller

“The tetrahedron is a form of energy package. The tetrahedron is transformable…All of the definable structuring of Universe is tetrahedrally coordinate in rational number increments of the tetrahedron.”

“Two Triangular Energy Events Make Tetrahedron: The open-ended triangular spiral can be considered one “energy event” consisting of an action, reaction and resultant. Two such events (one positive and one negative) combine to form the tetrahedron.”

Super Blue Blood Moon

Super Blood Moon 2018
Super Blood Moon 2018

The rare Super Blue Blood Moon is about to happen for the first time in 150 years!

Early Wednesday morning brought a lunar event that hasn’t been seen since 1866.

It was at least partially visible in all 50 U.S. states, though the views were better the farther west you live.

Let’s break this down. This event – called a super blue blood moon – was actually three fairly common lunar happenings all happening at the same time.

And scientists say that information gathered during the event could help them figure out where to land a rover on the moon.

3 THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN YOU STOP SHOWERING FOR A MONTH

  • You won’t actually smell
  • Your skin will moisturize itself
  • You’ll save so much extra time

Ever skip a shower after a workout? Maybe. What about skip a shower for an entire month? That’s what one writer from The Atlantic, James Hamblin, set out to do.

No, it wasn’t out of laziness (although we wouldn’t quite blame him). It was actually an experiment to see whether his natural microbes—found in the gut, as we know, but also on the skin—were enough to keep him smelling clean and fresh, without any extra products. (He did wash his hands regularly, though, and rinsed off when he was visibly dirty, “like after a run when I have to wash gnats off my face, because there is still the matter of society.” Good call.)

Hurricane season hasn’t peaked yet. Here’s what to expect

By Madison Park, CNN

Updated 11:04 AM EDT, Thu September 07, 2017

• Storm activity tends to peak in September, as water warms and wind shear fades

• Experts anticipated an above-normal 2017 hurricane season in the Atlantic

(CNN) In what feels like a never-ending barrage of storms, this year’s hurricane season just passed the halfway mark — and three hurricanes, including Category 5 Irma, are churning in the Atlantic. Continue reading Hurricane season hasn’t peaked yet. Here’s what to expect

Eclipses

types of solar eclipses

Eclipses, solar and lunar, have fascinated scientists and lay people for centuries. In ancient times, eclipses were seen as phenomena to be feared – many cultures came up with stories and myths to explain the temporary darkening of the Sun or the Moon. In recent centuries, eclipses have been sought after by scientists and astronomers who use the events to study and examine our natural world.

Solar eclipses can only occur during a New Moon when the Moon moves between Earth and the Sun and the 3 celestial bodies form a straight line: Earth–Moon–Sun.

There are between 2 and 5 solar eclipses every year.

There are 3 kinds of solar eclipses: total, partial, and annular. There is also a rare hybrid that is a combination of an annular and a total eclipse.

color blindness

Normal Vision
Normal Vision

There are three main kinds of color blindness, based on photopigment defects in the three different kinds of cones that respond to blue, green, and red light. Red-green color blindness is the most common, followed by blue-yellow color blindness. A complete absence of color vision —total color blindness – is rare.

Deuteranomaly
Deuteranomaly

People with ‘faulty’ trichromatic vision will be colour blind to some extent and are known as anomalous trichromats. In people with this condition all of their three cone types are used to perceive light colours but one type of cone perceives light slightly out of alignment, so that there are three different types of effect produced depending upon which cone type is ‘faulty’.

The different anomalous conditions are protanomaly, which is a reduced sensitivity to red light, deuteranomaly which is a reduced sensitivity to green light and is the most common form of colour blindness and tritanomaly which is a reduced sensitivity to blue light and is extremely rare.

Pigs

Three piglets
Three piglets
The rule of three: The average gestation period for a pig is 3 months, 3 weeks, and 3 days. 

Swine wise. 

Pigs tend to produce large litters in a relatively short period of time. A sow stays pregnant an average of 114 days, although it’s not uncommon for pigs to lose their babies before they are born, or have one or more stillborn piglets. She might not look pregnant until about three weeks before she delivers, but that doesn’t mean there’s a problem with the piglets.

The Constellations of the Summer Triangle

The Constellations of the Summer Triangle
The Constellations of the Summer Triangle
Stars from three constellations in the northern hemisphere form an imaginary triangle – the Summer Triangle, which is an asterism. The constellations Aquila, Cygnus, and Lyra contain the stars Altair, Deneb, and Vega. Together these stars create a nightly picture of a triangle in space.

The Earth’s seasons

The Earth’s seasons are caused by three factors:

Sun track
Sun track

The Earth orbits the Sun once a year in a nearly circular orbit.

The Earth’s axis of rotation (the straight line through the center of the Earth between the north and south poles) is not perpendicular to the plane of the Earth’s orbit. The Earth’s axis is tilted by about 23.4° from the the direction perpendiular to the orbital plane.

The orientation of the Earth’s axis in space remains nearly constant even as the Earth revolves around the Sun. It always points in the general direction of the star Polaris.
