1 The love of Jesus: the radical solution to the challenges of the world Carlos E. Puente University of California, Davis THE GEOMETRY OF EVANGELII GAUDIUM Ateneo Pontificio Regina Apostolorum Rome, March 2014

2 Thesis We humans, with a soul, may learn from recent advancements regarding the geometry of natural complexity in order to fill our hearts with the joy of the Gospel and take the mission to share the good news in a renewed fashion…

3 Pythagorean theorem a b c

4 A game for kids 70% 30%

5 A game for kids 70% 30%

6 A game for kids 70% 30%

7 A game for kids the game defines a multiplicative cascade

8 The cascade, twelve levels later

9 intertwined thorns via layers having distinct densities

10 The cascade, twelve levels later intertwined thorns via layers having distinct densities ultimate support on each of the layers is dust

11 The cascade, twelve levels later intertwined thorns via layers having distinct densities ultimate support on each of the layers is dust … the game generates a multifractal

12 The cascade, twelve levels later intertwined thorns via layers having distinct densities ultimate support on each of the layers is dust … the game generates a multifractal it is hard to walk …

13 Another game for kids

14

15 cascade yields equal disjoint thorns over dust

16 Another game for kids cascade yields equal disjoint thorns over dust varying the hole size gives topologically the layers on first game

17 Another game for kids cascade yields equal disjoint thorns over dust varying the hole size gives topologically the layers on first game … the two games are intimately related

18 Accumulated masses of clay

19

20 cumulative sets have no derivatives at many points and are locally flat

21 Accumulated masses of clay

23 A veritable deception

25 a devil’s staircase…

26 Turbulence and the first game eddies (Meneveau and Sreenivasan, 1987)

27 Turbulence and the first game eddies (Meneveau and Sreenivasan, 1987)

28 Turbulence and the first game eddies (Meneveau and Sreenivasan, 1987)

29 Turbulence and the first game eddies universal (Meneveau and Sreenivasan, 1987)

30 Our turbulent times

31 inequities competition cynicism discriminations forced equality fear

32 Our turbulent times inequities competition cynicism discriminations forced equality fear selfish postures and actions

33 Our turbulent times inequities competition cynicism discriminations forced equality fear

34 An optimal system? 5, 10, 20 and 40% largest thorns have 57, 70, 84 and 95% of the mass

35 An optimal system? 5, 10, 20 and 40% largest thorns have 57, 70, 84 and 95% of the mass quite close to the United States: 59, 71, 84 and 95%

36 An optimal system? 5, 10, 20 and 40% largest thorns have 57, 70, 84 and 95% of the mass quite close to the United States: 59, 71, 84 and 95% … as both cascades dissipate the energy, if we ride them, they will lead us to bite the dust…

37 Economic power laws Pareto distributions of income and wealth approximate lines in doubly-logarithmic scales (De Guilmi et al., 2003)

38 Other violent power laws

41 Conflict power laws no longer thanks to God… (Cederman, 2003)

42 Mechanisms yielding heavy tails multiplicative cascades preferential connections highly optimized tolerance, hot self-organized criticality (Sornette, 2009)

43 Common-sense code for peace run cascades in reverse to repair what is broken live at low Reynolds numbers to avoid violence cut mountains and fill valleys to restore unity

44 Common-sense code for peace run cascades in reverse to repair what is broken live at low Reynolds numbers to avoid violence cut mountains and fill valleys to restore unity RECONCILIATION LOVELOVE

45 The unique geometric solution

46 50-50 no holes level zero

47 The unique geometric solution no holes level zero

48 The unique geometric solution only straight and solid condition without thorns or dust no holes level zero

49 The unique geometric solution only straight and solid condition without thorns or dust no holes level zero Our Lord Jesus Christ the way, the truth, and the life

50 The unique geometric solution only straight and solid condition without thorns or dust no holes level zero Our Lord Jesus Christ the way, the truth, and the life the hypotenuse is indeed the path of peace!

51 The unique geometric solution only straight and solid condition without thorns or dust no holes level zero Our Lord Jesus Christ the way, the truth, and the life the hypotenuse is indeed the path of peace! … humbly rectify and love God and everyone to find true joy

52 The unique geometric solution only straight and solid condition without thorns or dust no holes level zero Our Lord Jesus Christ the way, the truth, and the life the hypotenuse is indeed the path of peace! … humbly rectify and love God and everyone to find true joy

53 A veritable invitation

54

55 to the Origin…

56 Equilibrium is an improbable point

57 it is hypocritical to judge if we are “far away” from the point

58 Equilibrium is an improbable point it is hypocritical to judge if we are “far away” from the point a convex surface is found for a finite number of levels: balance is found easily aided by gravity

59 Equilibrium is an improbable point it is hypocritical to judge if we are “far away” from the point a convex surface is found for a finite number of levels: balance is found easily aided by gravity in truth there is darkness between 6 and 9…

60 Our options equilibrium calmness rectitude fifty-fifty turbulence violence wickedness inequity

61 Our options

62

63 Pathways Two options before us two pathways ahead, the one is the longest the other straight. We journey directly or go by the legs, we follow intently or end up in pain. By walking the flatness or hiking the spikes, we travel in lightness or take serious frights. The incentive is unity and the call proportion, the key is forgiveness and the goal true notion. In wandering wickedness there is never fruit, but in ample humbleness one encounters the root.

64 There is no excuse, o listen my friend: it’s by the hypotenuse or else by the legs. There is no solution but walking straight: the spikes of disorder insinuate the way. It is true! There is a best pathway, the palpably smooth. It’s by the hypotenuse and walking in truth. There is one solution, I tell you the truth. It’s by the hypotenuse and walking in truth. For any other pathway will lead us astray. It’s by the hypotenuse, there is no other way. O listen, you brother, let’s brighten the day. It’s by the hypotenuse, there is no other way.

65 Otherwise, the devil shall pull by the legs. It’s by the hypotenuse or else by the legs. For such road is fractal: as long as it gets. It’s by the hypotenuse or else by the legs. O let’s mend the broken, growing to the root. It’s by the hypotenuse, the one that yields fruit. Let’s keep equilibrium, avoiding dark soot. It’s by the hypotenuse, the one that yields fruit. O listen, you brother, a counsel from science. It’s by the hypotenuse: the simplest design. I tell you integrating, don’t leave it to chance. It’s by the hypotenuse the simplest design.

66 Other coincidences “repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” “winding roads should be straight and rough ways smooth”

67 Other coincidences “repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” “winding roads should be straight and rough ways smooth” “forgive others seventy times seven times” “strength lies in quiet and trust,” at low Reynolds numbers “sinners, who love violence, shall lick the dust like the serpent”

68 Other coincidences “repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” “winding roads should be straight and rough ways smooth” “forgive others seventy times seven times” “strength lies in quiet and trust,” at low Reynolds numbers “sinners, who love violence, shall lick the dust like the serpent” “the ground shall bring forth thorns and thistles” “whoever does not gather with me scatters”

69 Other coincidences

70 Six, zero, nine, a dear song numbers unfolding daylong, six, zero, nine, a clean gong symbols inviting us to love. From six to six revolving inwards, from six to six I went downwards. From six to six dividing selfishly, from six to six lying endlessly. From six to six trying to be a rose, from six to six being only a nasty thorn. 609 Six, zero, nine, a dear song numbers unfolding daylong, six, zero, nine, a clean gong symbols inviting us to love. From six to zero I tapered my speed, from six to zero the tempest did not lead. From six to zero I no longer postponed, from six to zero I finally atoned. From six to zero I experienced peace, from six to zero my loneliness ceased.

71 Six, zero, nine, a dear song numbers unfolding daylong, six, zero, nine, a clean gong symbols inviting us to love. From zero to nine the spiral turned over, from zero to nine I dared to love others. From zero to nine I attempted prayers, from zero to nine I became a repairer. From zero to nine infinity flowed free, from zero to nine unity grew in me. Six, zero, nine, a dear song numbers unfolding daylong, six, zero, nine, a clean gong symbols inviting us to love. From nine to nine weaving my reality, from nine to nine dreaming its totality. From nine to nine conquering my greed, from nine to nine planting a new seed. From nine to nine despite a clear spite, from nine to nine knowing there is light.
