Atomic building blocks express archetypal structure

Many chemists chart the periodic table on a spiral. Most tables
introduce gaps at certain intervals, to account for gaps in the
progression of stable properties along the progress of atomic numbers (Z-numbers, usually equal to electron numbers). Maurice Peyroux’s periodic table introduces gaps from 2He Helium to 3Li Lithium; 10Ne Neon to 11Na Sodium; and 18Ar Argon to 19K Potassium. He extends the fields for 1H Hydrogen, 4Be Beryllium, 12Mg Magnesium, and 21Sc Scandium. Similar adjustments continue among the heavier metals, to align some atomic properties in radial columns.

By making four slight tabulation adjustments in the standard gaps, the Peyroux table core forms a 6×5 squared spiral of elements:
10Ne Neon and 18Ar Argon move across the artificial transition to the left;
11Na Sodium moves into part of the large 12Mg Magnesium field;
18Ar Argon displaces 19K Potassium into the Sc21 Scandium field;
20Ca Calcium moves into part of the 21Sc Scandium field.

Here is Peyroux’s periodic table spiral as a squared grid, with elements over their atomic numbers (number of protons, or number of electrons):………….[tables are omitted in this extract]……….
Elements in the same rows are seven or eight protons apart, thus one electron orbital apart; here marked [v]. Gaps _ appear from 7N to 8 O; and from 15P to 16S. The periodic table compares directly with the stoneprint types: axial opposites are seven or eight types apart; higher magnitudes are fifteen types apart. Two galactic and two polar points intervene in ‘gaps’. Here is Peyroux’s periodic spiral table of elements, over atomic numbers (identical to stoneprint type numbers), over seasons or myths or constellations: ……..[tables are omitted in this extract]…………

Four gaps (marked =) coincide with two galactic and two polar features:
7g Galactic Centre [Galax]

11p Galactic Pole [pGal]

15g Galactic Gate [Gate]; Electrons [e-]?

4p Galactic South Pole [pGs]; NO GAP, but some tables do place a gap between 19K Potassium and 20Ca Calcium.

The four transitions at top and bottom, coincide with four semi-types:
2c Basket; 2He to 3Li, gas to solid
5c Basket Tail; 5:20Ca to 6C, silt to fuel
9c Basket Lid; 9F to 10Ne, reactive to inert gas
13c Basket Head; 13Al to 14Si, metal to rock.

These four structural points, and four semi-types, were first isolated in art and rock art analysis; then confirmed in organ reflexology points; and tabulated by seasons; then confirmed in buildings and site analyses; then tabulated among elements. Thus nature confirms cultural structure. In hindsight, this study should have started with natural structure. However the result is the same: structure is pervasive, enabling creation and perception, including ‘thought’. One of the differences between the cultural stoneprint spiral, and the natural periodic table spiral, is that the atomic spiral is contracted, or more tightly rolled, introducing a coil of ‘opposite’ types between lower and higher magnitude versions of the double-layered types. Here is a comparison ……………….[extract from Stoneprint, 2016]

Psychological motivations express archetypes

Culture, and the study of its media and mechanisms, is not an idle game. Culture integrates subconscious and conscious elements in our perception and behaviour. On consciousness, Carl Jung (1951; Alchemical interpretation of the fish) wrote: “Without the existence of conscious concepts, perception is impossible. This explains numerous neurotic disturbances which arise when certain contents are constellated in the unconscious, but cannot be assimilated, owing to the lack of perceptive concepts that would grasp them.
“It is extremely important to tell children fairytales and legends, and to inculcate religious ideas and dogmas into adults, because these things are instrumental symbols, with whose help unconscious contents can be canalized into consciousness, interpreted, and integrated. Failing this, their energy flows off into conscious contents which, normally, are not much emphasized, and intensifies them to pathological proportions. We then get apparently groundless phobias and obsessions; crazes, idiosyncrasies, hypochondriac ideas, and intellectual perversions, camouflaged in social, religious, or political garb”.
Alchemists and astrologers had an intuitive grasp of the need to study myth and the inherent structure of nature and culture, including organs and personality types, long before psychology was a science, or even a word.
Crafts and science became popular pursuits, thanks to the printing press, enabling the Enlightenment. Jung and Freud have made the elements of personality, components of the soul, defence mechanisms, and therapy, into popular crafts and household terms.
The study of archetypal expression on a worldwide scale became possible only in the last two decades, thanks to access to rock art reproductions in academic papers, field work, archives; and plans of buildings, temples, ruins, complexes, pyramid fields, geoglyphs and cities of every culture and era, posted on the Internet. Demonstration of stoneprint in these two media, raises the possibility that more features of the culture code could be discovered in more media, such as literature and personality. The humanities may yet catch up on natural sciences.
The periodic table was resisted by leading scientists for several years, for being ‘simplistic’. Psychology was resisted by other sciences, including medicine, for being ‘shamanistic superstition’. Our reluctance to see culture as subject to universal laws, is evident in the limited applications of structural sociology. We label repetitive behaviour as ‘ritual’, and as ‘primitive’ (as even Levi-Strauss did). We treat ritual as a remnant of our supposedly former ‘savage thought’ (the title of one of Levi-Strauss’ best known books, mistranslated into English as Savage Mind). We should study mythical logic, or mythologics (the title of one of Levi-Strauss’ more substantial, but lesser known books). Anthropology anthologies demonstrate that human sciences developed from crude assumptions, to a variety of sophisticated theories and applications (Hayes 1979; From ape to angel). The study of nature, and abstracts such as geometry and math, seem mature and sophisticated in comparison…………..
