The universal 8 SPOKE wheel. 9th house in centre of Mandala. Not in circumference. Point Centre of Complete field symmetry.

Lo Shu Matrix and Vortex based math side by side chaos Test.

Lo Shu centre 5 is the only 3 order that represents both mod 9 and real number simultaneously. Lo Shu c5 is the only genuine magic square that uses the first 9 integers. Every other is either reduced to its mod 9 counterpart or real number. Never both. lburton 2012.

This page is an attempt to free the VBM collective from the limits of a Plato's Cave world viewpoint with a simple side by side comparison. No more shadows on walls.

My frank stance. Vortex Based Math is Graffiti. Wizardry. An irritable noise. A distraction. Unoriginal. A pest. A nuisance. A swine. Unhistorical. A thief in the night! An imposter... etc etc. 

I discovered the Lo Shu magic square matrix [not in wikipedia] all strictly from the original Lo Shu 5 magic square. Following order not created by myself, but handed down historically throughout the world- China, Babylon etc.


Here we examine the Three order squares of Vortex Based Maths that have number 9 central.

What is obvious with 0 or 9 central is the pairs will always be 1 8 2 7 3 6 4 5 as they must equal 9 in sum.

VBM only have 3 Three order arrangements each with number 9 central therefore the scope of VBM is extremely limited regarding full processing of All pairs. Proved simply below.

There are Nine houses of the Lo Shu... Nine consecutive numbers. One central.

Starting with Lo Shu numbers.

If not obvious please add the same colour together in each row.

01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 4 x10 +5... pairs equal 10. [impossible in vbm view]

02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 4 x12 +6... pairs equal 12 [impossible in vbm view]

05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 4 x18 +9... pairs equal 18. [possible in vbm view]

For the record. I confirmed Mark Rodin was ignorant to Three order magic squares personally on email 2009 likewise i do not know what Vortex Based Math theory is.

3 order.

Mark Rodin [Vortex Based Math genius] R Powell [clone of genius] both promote the 9 spoke 'Fingerprint of God' ideogram... A Nine spoke wheel.

VBM's non 'Theory of magnetism' is based on that 9 circle Volkswagon emblem... Though abandoning the 9 circle ideogram they invoke a near cousin to the Lo Shu.

A 3 order square pattern Topology called 'Underpinning map of the universe'... Note: [Just One 3 order].

HUGE difference between the Historical Three order Lo shu/Saturn arrangement and the new-age VBM counterfeit.

Same 3 order:

If both the Lo Shu and vbm 3 order centre 9 arrangements were drawn as a circle they would be almost identical!

Which Three order displays the grouping of the first Nine individual numbers perfectly with No chaos?

Respectfully ignoring every outside influence I state ''All linear equidistant pairs either side of centre n = Double centre n. Never the same.''

Law: 1 (2) 3 Pairs either side of central integer 1+3=4.

Pairs 1 and 3 in sum are equal to central number *(2)

Centre below is (5) the Original Lo Shu example. Ancient example of equidistant Binary Pairs... "Expanding the lesser and Greater relative to central position"... [Pythagoras knew a little about this.]

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

All expanding Pairs = DOUBLE CENTRE. 4+6 3+7 2+8 1+9 = 4*10

4 9 2

3 5 7

8 1 6

Without magic. Four pairs of 10 and a centre number 5. Sum 45. With magic 8 rows of 15 = 120 or magic 8 spoke 4 lines through centre of 15 = 60.

Yellow group linear aspect is 1's.

The page could end here... with a thank you for your time.

Vbm and loshumatrix 3 order squares are similar though not the same. Only the Lo Shu is historical. Source material.

Pair sum is always centre number multiplied by Two.

Any number is central to its own unique Mandala.

Centre 9 of the Yellow group here to ease the Vbmer's into the Ancient Matrix arrangement. Some paths demonstrated here and vid12.

A 2d skin with magic square centres 3, 6, and 9, like already displayed. [True mosaic world boundary is 9x9]

Every number in all field layers 2d, 3d has every cell part of a linear number-line at equidistant intervals same as the first step. Look at the tile with most colours. Notice they are all "knight move" spirals from a chess board in mod 9 order.

This is a cubic Matrix. This torus is an option that can be many layers deep demonstrated shortly.

These are in the video called...   Lo Shu magic square matrix, sail to the moon, you end where i begin, Lotus Flower 

Look at the degrees of freedom in the above c3 c6 c9 number matrix. [Linear number lines through every centre].

Only a few paths highlighted though many many more in expansion.


The [series C] order comes through the skin layers in Tri helice sets demonstrated below here. Two different series in this picture. All magic squares of Yellow group are accounted for. Helical one way zig zags the other.


This is VBM on trial. In vbm theory these do not exist... nothing in central position in VBM?

What do you think? Yellow 1 through 9 Magic square central numbers are used.

Colour scheme below and throughout this work is in tribute to Goethe.

The Red has a Cyan shadow, Green Magenta shadow and Blue a Yellow shadow. All the pairings in the circled map respects that shadow colour. Please watch 'Light Dark and colour'. Then go to links Tri Helical page to see how the colour works.

Zoom in Yellow group. All colour coaxial groups do the same.

Topic of topology. The vbm skin!

I used Rodins old torus as a stencil due to zero software at that time to apply the loshumatrix numbers. I prefer this one now.

Youtuber Igors great effort a thumbs up as it is the first attempt without specifics..

Say hi to Oxygen. Great work. Take a look.

The simple models of one layer only Quad and Yin Yang or rather Coil series a and b.

if you build it will they come?

Now: What M Rodin uses as "underpinning map of the universe".

VBM pattern I named the 123 phone pad field due to its unhistorical origins.

Yellow Group non magic test turns out is Identical to VBM map of the universe.

Illustrated below Rodin map the easy way.

Yellow group 'Broken symmetry' Torus topology of centre mod 9, Notice no centre 3 or 6.

We see the 123 phone pad field [pink and white] separated - Then One half of field numbers rotated 180 out of phase with original- then put back together.

Old blog old news and broken freedom of that "LINEAR" expression demonstrated throughout this page. Please never associate this modern manipulation that is identical to vbms topology with the ORIGINAL Lo Shu Pattern. It was playtime.

 VBM topology regardless of which of the Three! are all a type of 'broken symmetry'. This potentially means 'work' in VBM land so... cool? Coil's look impressive. It may do?

Though, it is an artificial arrangement and just like King wens hexagrams. Earns no respect here.

Therefore interesting but not source.

A big leap of faith is required and applied by VBM followers i guess. Mark almost did a great job.

With that in mind on the end of a very long barge pole they go!

Regarding the topology. There are no valid nested 8 spoke co-axis groups and no connection to history whatsoever.


As always the boundaries will always = 9....

and... that seems important to them?




The 9 or the 0 have very little to do with it. Mod 9 is perfect [Nine Numbers] not Number 9 is that not what balance is all about? Every triangular section of a circle will reduce to 9 so what? Every triangle is 180. No magic there. Obvious.

"9 the "God?"

'The 9 fold way?' 'The 9 spoke wheel of Dharma?' 'The 9 spoke ba gua?' 

'The 9 part Trigram family'... mmm..? Stop!

What is wrong with this picture?

"9 is not the Messiah! he is a very Naughty boy!''

9 spoke wheel. To be frank. No. Gurdieff or Mark Rodin, please take your pic? All thought experiments from potentially self appointed mystics. Jung had thought experiments as diagrams too. Why do VBM not draw that?

Jung used the "Early Heaven" ba gua. Historical. The 8 spoke wheel. Very very old.

No such thing as the Ancient 'Early Heaven' arrangement in VBM's selective mind.

Do you now see with all respect why Vortex based math is completely useless to us.

This is a great link to understand Paul Martyn-Smith I Ching math... Very important and enlightening stuff regarding Historical connections/source and actual mathematical works.


More Order.

loshumatrix Sets in sets. Topology.

27 centres each of 3s 6s and 9s therefore 81 in total.

Do you see 1 2 4 8 7 5 radial triangle sets. Find the centre.

The co-axial and subset challenge: Look for 111 222 444 888 777 555 sets As.


Not claiming underpinning map of the universe- to be clear.

Simply showing how much more interesting it is than the latest fraud/VBM/Graffiti.






Above picture c3 c9 c6. Now for the c1 c2 c4 c8 c7 c5.

 Field NEVER CHANGES.. ONLY NUMBERS Uniformly. Stack bottom up c5 c1 c2 c4 c8 c7 [c5etc]

Tri sets and gap 33966 impossible in VBM due to centres always one sum with no  c1 c2 c3 c4 c5 c6 c7 c8 c9 Magic squares which is a big problem for that system a big problem indeed.





This stack layer arrangement is also a breaking of vertical 9 stack y axis lattice symmetry [linear as above so below aspect of 9 stack mountain].

All the triangle sets show this spiral HELICAL GROUP in expansion ! Up 1s 2s 4s 8s 7s 5s through layers, while zig zags always stay in the cardinal plane '2d' [polarized]


Binary pair OPPOSITE TO houses with numbers 1 2 4 8 7 5 Pathways.

Centre 5 all pairs for C5 = 10 so  1 9, 3 7, 4 6, 2 8 put in map situ.

Centre 1 C1 = pairs 2 so  2 9, 3 8, 5 6, 4 7 put in situ.

Centres 2, 4, 8, 7, 5 etc.


Ancient well spoke.

A section or vertical plane below extended to show pattern. Layers c3 c6 c9 group. Orange and purple columns are all centres. This y axis plane of layers c3 the 6 and the 9. Trivia: If we were using real values this would double as Egyptian math.

Have you ever seen Order anything like this in the entire world of mathematics?

Use whatever you see fit. No restrictions.

Jason Verbelli [I think Jason is cool and would like to thank him here for his online grotto in his video description tab] Jason of Searl tech said in a video that i had unified VBM with Searl... though that is not correct. Many would see the said achievement as a complement... i do not, but thank him for the mention.

I did not 'unify' the Two works only 'Separated' VBM from the magic square focused  Lo Shu and Searl connections and hope this is demonstrated throughout this VBM page. 

Fact: Lo Shu/Searl are completely focused on Magic squares and Laws inherent within balanced orders Only!

VBM is not Magic, therefore does not fit at all and was never intended too.

Though please never take my word for it, take a look. Searl used loshu 5 early.

Key: Lo Shu, I Ching math, Magic squares, All from Historic records. Searl.

Vortex based math = Mark Rodin [VBM genius] All from Mark Rodins mystical mind.

- And for the record i have Never recanted anything i have said, although hear Randy Powell [VBM clone] seems to think i have.

Cool that should be clear now...



All this required comparison aside. I would like to wish everybody from VBM a wonderful life. I have no ill will toward any of you... regardless how crazy you are.


Thank you.



Use anything... No restrictions.
