Three is the magic number – presentation by Michael Eck

Michael Eck

Michael Eck, the author of the Book of Threes, delivered a Power Point Presentation at the Art Institute of Philadelphia in 2008 regarding the nature of concepts in threes. By looking at simplification, completion, and memory, he speaks about how these areas occur simultaneously.

Currently, the presentation is web enabled but is only viewable in Microsoft Internet Explorer (as it was exported from Power Point). The file location is The Book of Threes Video.

It is best viewed with a high speed connection. . .

Regards,

Welcome to threes.com – A Generalist’s Playground

Image For about 30 years, Michael Eck has been thinking about threes. Things that come in threes. Now he combines that esoteric interest with his attachment to the Internet by creating what he hopes will be the book with the most authors ever (a lot more than three, anyway).

Image He suggests that in our minds we break concepts into three parts to understand whatever it is we are thinking about. We use threes to define systems. We use the third or middle point with regard to the extremes to define a point of view. Yadda yadda yadda.

Image The concept is simple. Just think of something that comes in threes, then go to this site and contribute it. For example: the colors on the American flag; Caesar’s most famous words, “Veni, vidi, vici” (“I came, I saw, I conquered”); the number of legs on each side of an insect.
