Read an interview I did about the 12x Spiral, here.
Often when we think of numbers we understand it in the format of language acquisition, meaning that we learn it as it is taught to us, rather than coming to terms with the reality of comprehending quantity. Though we ascribe names and symbols to numbers, it is different from language since numbers are the system we use to understand the difference between an object and multiple objects. Its there whether or not we acknowledge it. There is 1 sun in our solar system, no matter how we communicate that info to each other. We have 2 eyes and ears, no matter how that is perceived or described. I say this because numbers are different from language, in the sense that we are comprehending the relationship of quantity and relationship of number systems, rather than fabricating their meaning through the development of culture and custom, as with language.
I was working on a project of layered symbol systems, I call the learning flower. I am developing it as a product (A fridge magnet puzzle). Prompted by initial feedback I began adding layers of numbers around the circle of 12. After working with it for a while I realized that there are certain specific patterns amongst the numbers. The multiples of numbers seemed to form distinct shapes.
I have continued to study it and feel like it may be of interest to others. I think it may help people understand numbers, number systems and relationships. It may also have philosophical implications to systems, forms, as well as dominate and subtle relationship insights.
