The Periodicity of an Object in Free Fall and The Periodicity of the Schemata of the Elements Charles William Johnson The periodicity of an object in free fall near the surface of the Earth. Due to the force of gravity on Earth, a falling object reveals a periodicity in time. The photo to the left shows a round object in free fall, whereby the object began to fall as of the first flash of the camera, which then took photos every 0.1 second apart. The multiple exposure shows the distance traveled by the object in free fall, and its distinctive periodicity. In the analysis of matter-energy, the theoretical conception of reality involves identifying the conditions of existence, and the spacetime/motion coordinates of a particular event. In the case of the free fall of an object in the Earth’s gravitational pull, near the surface of the Earth, the contant value of gravity varies at different places on the Earth’s surface. Now, this pattern in spacetime reminds me of the periodicity illustrated on the schemata of the elements related to the electronic configuration of the elements. The neutronic periodicity establishes a different pattern. For now, I consider only the electronic schemata. The Electronic Schema of the Elements In this illustration, I show the electronic schemata of the elements in a vertical position. The color-coded elements are the commonly called “representative” elements. Some scientists call these the so-called regular elements, while the transition elements are referred to as the “irregular” elements. The point to note is that the periodicity of the representative elements on the electronic schemata reflect a pattern similar to that of an object in free fall in the Earth’s gravitational field, near the surface of the Earth. It should come as little surprise that the periodicity of an object in free fall on Earth and the periodicity of the elements share a similar pattern. For all matter-energy, all spacetime/motion events are relational to one another. The same conditions of existence of spacetime/motion that determine the free fall event of Earth’s gravitational pull are the same conditions of existence of the spacetime/motion coordinates of the elemental events of the different forms of matter-energy. Unlike the electronic schemata of the elements shown here, the conventional periodic table formatted by blocks denies the the spatial aspect of periodicity ---even though it is called the “periodic table”. The conventional periodic table of the elements does not reflect the spacing of the periods relating to the progressive atomic numbers of the elements. Few tables throughout the history of the periodic tables actually reflected a spacing of the elements according to their atomic numbers. The structural format of the electronic schemata of the elements portrays the spatial aspects of the different periods determined by the atomic number of the elements. By examining the spatial aspect of electronic periodicity of the elements, as shown here, the pattern resulting from the elemental periodicity shares a similarity with the spatial aspects of an object in free fall. The distinctive format of the electronic schemata of the elements allows for establishing color-coded patterns that are otherwise unavailable on the conventional periodic table. To date, I have developed over three thousand electronic and neutronic schemata of the elements. Each schema portrays a color-coded pattern relating to the features and characteristics of the elements that has simply been overlooked given the block-like nature of the conventional periodic table. As I mentioned, the periodic table, in fact, is a misnomer, inasmuch as the spatial periodicity of the elements is denied by the structural design of the conventional table.
