All things vibrate, without the same frequency lasting for a long time. Sometimes it is fast and sporadically, it is slow in addition to being regulated and mutually influenced. Such vibration having ever-changing frequency activates time which in turns generates process. That is why I believe in the existence of a future. (#future #time #vibration 2011.05)

Oilmonkeyology is a design concept which I am presently dwelling on. Some recent notions, handicapped by several external factors, were deemed to lose their agility and have stayed unresolved. However, today I have had perusal of the history and construction of vehicles. I acknowledge the circular form of the wheels counting on the axis to revolve, a remarkable invention in the past which is still adopted today. That is the best example that sees form serving function. Compared to other forms, the circular is definitely an effective logistical device. Of all living things on earth undergoing long history of evolution, none has the limbs revolving like wheels. Why? The highly functional circular form has not occurred in the process of evolution of living things. It is because were our limbs to become wheels, nerves and arteries would rotate, intertwined, and eventually demise as they would not be able to supply nutrition and vent messages and sentiments. In this regard, the existing device is functional under the law of nature as a result of forfeiting the choice of high effectiveness of the circle thanks to particular factors.
